Sunday Dance to Word-Authenticity

Sunday Dance to Word-Authenticity


What does being Authentic mean to you? It’s a big word going around a lot these days, and for good reason.

I enjoy looking up words on line… words are fun to play with… Here are a few examples for the word Authentic, or authenticity.


Authenticity refers to the truthfulness of origins, attributions, commitments, sincerity, devotion, and intentions.


not false or imitation : real, actual

worthy of acceptance

true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character


real, genuine
Synonyms: accurate, actual, authoritative, bona fide, certain, convincing, credible, creditable, dependable, factual, faithful, for real, legit, legitimate, official, original, pure, reliable, sure, true, trustworthy, trusty, twenty-four carat, valid, veritable
Notes: genuine  means not fake or counterfeit – or sincerely felt or expressed, while authentic  means conforming to fact and therefore worthy of belief and trust

In much the same way as I call Tribal bellydance organic, being authentic feels to me to be organic, finding my true nature from inside, with out the aid of outside input! It feels good, natural, true.

When I am being authentic, I can move with trust, intention, mindfulness. I feel connected, with my inner being as well as my physical body. I don’t need to judge myself, nor do I need to put limitations on myself, if I trust myself. Autonomy…there’s another good word (maybe next week!).

How do you feel authentic? What makes you you? Come on, peeps, give it up…journal a bit, write about it, and share it with me… send me an email,  ( and I would love to share what you write here on my blot…
