we dance through universes and lifetimes
Brilliant post from you guys re busking! Love it!
As a young teenager in the late 60's, looking for something else which home and school had failed to provide, I used to skip school and take myself on the train to London and found myself in the company of the buskers who sang and played for loose change on the underground or thereabouts. It was a self initiated expansion into another world. I just used to help holding the hat out. They had a word for this which I forget...
A week or so back I took myself and a few hula hoops up to Hyde Park with a vague intention of perhaps selling a couple or at least sharing the hoop love with strangers. I found myself hooping alone under some trees a little away from the main paths, and after a while just let go of the location and just gave myself up to the dance, my Mp3 stuffed down my leggings out of hoops way! It was brilliant, and reminded me of those far away teenage days! What a great way to cut across the normal flow of everyday coming and going, and my everyday self too! I've already checked out a good spot in the pedestrianised end of Croydon town centre a month or so ago..... I even have a contact who wants to do it too! What am I waiting for?? Maybe just the licence??
I'll get on to the council next week!
Always so great to feel the vibes from you two.........

Hi You guys!
Just to say again how much i appreciate your being there.....it makes me realise that I am also someone who is a potentially support for others too, so no good sitting back and wondering 'should I expect anyone to be interested in what I have to share/say!' My ego tells me I'm too small and stupid to make a difference, and i will be crucified if i stand up and make myself visible. You have to take that risk! And sometimes i think it would be sweet to have a partner in all this! Doing it all alone can be a bit.....hard! Yeah, i know - it can be a bit hard doing it with a partner too! But anyway, we're all partners in this crime! The crime of daring to be the little particles of god that we are! There is no 'aloneness', just all one ness.
I'm not perfect, I have a lot of flaws and weaknesses, a long way still to go - but if i wait until i'm perfect before i start to play the game of being who i am, i'll never go anywhere! It's the same all along the way. I'm just me, here, now. Now Share This. Hmm that's a good title for a book.....!
love you two!
Good Morning Jenny and Otis,
I am sure your travels are new and exciting everyday.
Just wanted to let you know I decided to take a "Funkmeyer day" (which actually turned into two days) and read and watched all that I could concerning both of you.
And what I came away with was this.......Pure and unadulterated FREEDOM!!!!! I was so inspired by the e-books...the behind the scenes 5 hour video. Jenny, your blogging of your journey.
Otis...your dancing in Tokyo......Your blog about the forest...SO MANY things......these all inspired me even more so.
Jenny I would be so honored if indeed you would agree to be one of my first friends In LA. FREEDOM!!! Uhhhhhhh how delicious that sounds.
I am still here in Long Island New York as I still have things I must tend to before I leave for CA But this will not take too much longer.
Have fun guys!
Much unconditional love,
When reading your second grade childhood [soul retrieval experience], I flashed on being bullied at school and gave myself a pat on the back that I got through it. I forgave the bullies and forgave myself for getting bullied and being a bully especially to my late younger brother. Then I released those thoughts of guilt and shame and then owned them again as I know I am imperfectly perfect just like everyone else.
was sitting in a cafe in Seattle enjoying my salad. A woman asked me what I thought of all the birds and fish dying mysteriously of late, and I told her I just didn't know. I told her I didn't want to be saddened by massive death and she said yah, you know you should check out the funkmeyers. THey are full of life and positive energy and you know what, she was right. Thanks for being here to brighten our world!
To find you, for me was like... more believe in my selfs minds. More trust in myself.
I understand what are you saying and what you are doing.
And im very happy of you both. I see real happiness and love on your faces. They are on my fase too :)
Love and worm wibes from another side of world :))))))))))
How can you thank someone who has made such an impact on your life? As I write this tears are welling up in my eyes - tears of joy!
I did this last night for myself and retrieved a fragment that had been lost in shame and guilt since I was 18 (I'm 52 now). It worked so well and it was such a comfort that I felt the change almost immediately.
I'm hoping that my 16 year old daughter will be open to this as she went through a terrifying ordeal from a family member from the age of 6 to 8. It affects her to this day and I never knew what to do. She had some regular counseling after we found out, but she still carries the memory with her and still has nightmares. It affects all her male relationships and she has become a bit of a man hater. She is so beautiful, but you can see that she has a fragmented soul. My second husband was a demented soul who traumatized both of us as well. But now through your soul retrieval process we can begin to heal.
I just wanted to thank you for helping us put our lives back together and become whole again.
I found you from the Bashar video you have.
You and Otis are such lovely people and I'm so thankful to have found you. If you ever come to the Atlanta area, please look me up.
hey this probably seems really weird and stupid but i'm a junior in high school...i've always been the one at school who just stands around in school dances...who thought he could never dance... i would turn down dances just because i was scared on the floor. while dancing was fun for all of my friends, it was really terrifying for me.
just watching how good you are and listening to your story about how you started all this in maine...it really inspired me to get some confidence in my dancing by learning a few things. i'm no serious popper, but in your beginner's tutorial i really learned to get in the groove of the music and really let loose. you're hilarious in your vids and they are the best i've seen. even with basic hitting/angles and moving with the beat is enough to make me feel good about myself and love dancing! i'm still eagerly watching the vids and trying to create my own style. thank you for literally changing the way i view dance! you've made high school that much easier for me.
thank you so much.
that honestly was the realest shit i have ever heard in my life!!
i feel like my whole mind frame was changed in the two minutes it took to read your message!
you are a real inteligent person and a new influence to me now!
i have never met anybody that stuck to what they wanted and stopped at nothing to get it! but now seeing it first hand lets me know that anything is possible if you want it then go get it cuz dreams are for sleepers until you acutually do it!!
thank you for everything bra i really am thankful for meeting someone like you that is a possitive influence!!
keep up the good work and the sick ass dance videos!
i hope maybe one day we can meet and exchange dance moves or something haha!
Thank you so much for your great videos! By far the best (and most fun) popping tutorials on youtube! I just recently started to try and learn some popping. I've had this dream of mine since I was like 14 to actually start popping, and really try and learn how to do it. I just never really dared to start.
So it took me seven years and now I'm eager to learn. I've actually been saving some money to be able to take som classes. I think that might be a good thing for me, to help me make som progress.I think it's quite hard to look at yourself and see what's right and what needs some improving, in the beginning. So I think that will be a good thing for me, and a great experience. So next thursday I'll be attending my first popping class!
What I wanted to say is that the reason I actually started popping was I saw your videos and your tutorials were so easy to follow and fun to learn from so I started to enjoy dancing so much and just build up my confidence and realized that even I can be a popper. So I've been freestyling here in my own home for a while, hahaha :) Walking around like a robot when I'm cooking food, popping while I brush my teeth and tutting while waiting for the bus to arrive.
So thank you so much, for making me realize that I can become a popper and for making me laugh and have fun along the way!
And by the way, maybe you get a lot of messages so you don't have to take time and answer, I just thought I'd let you know and give you some credit for what you do.
Keep up the good work!
I'll end this message like you usually end your videos:
love the way you think about the life!!!!!
u know, i'm a girl (only 14) but i'm interested in your channel
(of course many professional popper are women)
and i will keep on learning from u
i dont have the chance to go to dance club and so on, your vids help me a lot
in my country, there is hardly someone dance as well as u do
keep making such helpful vids
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Your popping videos are amazing as well as all your videos , i watch them everyday countless times to try to learn dance ! if there was ever a chance to meet you in real life it would be amazing to see your moves in action and maybe even learn some more things you haven't put up on here yet !
