Spinning into the week! Remembering The Minneapolis burlesque Festival last weekend : so grateful for all the love and incredible hospitality and performances I witnessed in the twin titties. Catching up with old friends from all over; merging Burning Man &  burlesque. Touring guthrie and drag costume studios, connecting with boss ass ladies whom I respect deeply,  seeing the gorgeous architecture City layout .... great food, nature, people, co-ops, and PAISLEY PARK! But really, y'all are all inspiring to me and I am grateful to get to be in your presence even for a little while! I couldn't tag everyone- so know I love you if I didnt get to!! ❤ Interestingly, I started my moon on the first day performing in the festival along w @lolafrost & @cocolectric. it's an interesting challenge to connect deeply w sensuality & emit sexuality when my womb is releasing and telling me to go inwards & rest. Performing is nearly the opposite of this. being in tune with my sensuality so deeply and drawing from a deeper place to emit that which I want to do and I'm expected to on stage feels delicious.  As #lolafrost says-- #destruction! Our blood destroys and creates- Both. #deeplyconnecting ♡ Gratitude and I'll see you again soon #minneapolis !! @Regran_ed from @dirtyboixavier -  Have some more of @gaea_lady for your #twirlthursday #day from the @mplsburlesquefest #mplsburlesquefest #mbf2018 #gaealady #burlesqueperformer #twirlme - #regrann  #witchesofinstagram #witchywoman #burlesque #chicagoburlesque #spin #dancer #burlylife #burlesquefest #festlife #stagetime #womenempowerment
Time for furs again this October Sunday-  The chill brings crispness and the thin veil between worlds.  I've been having intense dreams lately, filled with fear and anxiety, something I am consciously eradicating from how I move through my daily life. Witnessing my subconscious dropping me full in these emotions is fascinating. Waking up and dissolving how I feel and knowing I really do not wish to operate in that place is a blessing, and also a bit of a struggle. Our subconscious shows us much, and paying attention to it can be a fantastic tool. 🔥🐱🦇🖤🦇🐱🔥 Burn it all away. 🔥❤🔥 Meanwhile, stay tuned for the upcoming scholarship competition information for the Ignite your Inner Flame retreat. Through 7 Days social media challenge beginning on November 11th, you have the opportunity to win a full tuition scholarship to our fire dance and ritual performance retreat in February of 2019 in Costa Rica....( follow Link in my bio for more information on the retreat itself.) This Retreat with @wanderswithkiki & myself will dive into many of the concepts I explore and performance in life and will bring you deeper into your true self, through yourself & working with the element of FIRE. 🐱🔥🖤🔥🐱 #igniteyourinnerflame 📷 @peterserockivisuals -  Gaea Lady at Undressed Burlesque @simones_bar @gaea_lady @undressedburlesque #chicago #chicagoart #dance #burlesque #art #performance #pilsen #pilsenchicago #sparkly #photographyart  #burlychicago #burly #nikon #godox #heels #dress #burlygirl #pinup #legs #pasties #dancer #vail #showgirl #gaealady #fauxfur #fireretreats #ignite #dreams #october

SWIPE IT--->>> Dancing. Sometimes I get very self-conscious and feel like I have totally lost the ability to dance well.  Kind of silly, I know. Dancing to me is that thing in life that one simply cannot NOT do ; dancing to me is as breathing.  Its something that is simply done daily, all the time. There are periods of rest between the dances, but the dancing is never over.  A mantra at one of the freakEasy's once was **Don't Stop Dancing**, and then dance party will never be over. And it's true, life is one large interconnected dance.  It only stops when you stop. .  I'm grateful to have this amazing dance studio (new lights! New sound!!) and beautiful home stages like @untitledchicago and @getunbridled @thedrifterchicago @alhambrapalacerestaurant to dance on. . And, I'm so grateful to have others in my life who also dance until we drop, and to have others to encourage me to keep dancing. .  So YOU, you keep dancing! Do it down the street! In a bar! In a resraurant!  Come Dance With Me or Watch Me dance or simply dance in your living room today. **Because the movement is medicine** the more we move the younger we feel and the more we release the crap life puts on us. . If you slept through and you're still breathing, enjoy the backstage selfie love. My Chicago performer family gives me life and love, so many Giggles all the time. Flowing through creating an entertainment with these humans is incredible. ♡♡♡♡♡♡ #gaealady #danceveryday #creatingintention #burlesque #chicagoburlesque #getunbridled  #onlyatuntitled #backstage #dancelove #dancers #entertainers #danceforever #dancerlife #practicalmagic #behindthescenes #selfies

A lady and her cat. This bright light, a flash; Illuminating, and yet.... Intoxicating. . . October, the month of transition and abundance, into the Stark cool cold void of infinite possibility of winter. The layers of time and dimension are thin this season. I Surrender into the greater plan, if there is one, or perhaps to this subtle yet strong current riding beneath all that our conscious and acutely perceptive mind weaves into the story of our reality. The logic we have been taught may not always explain away that which we feel and deeply know. As we Embrace this greater mystery, and Trust, I feel how our lives can become rich with the magic and the everyday enjoyment of the present.  A tightrope balance, a sweet interplay, and a learned yet intuitive interaction with space and time. My cat, my queen eleven, teaches me much about slipping into these undercurrents and intuitively moving through the world. Here, a light this bright, is indeed so Illuminating that we see much into these undercurrents, only for a split second. These moments are clear and bright, though not always explained. #morningmusings 🐈🐱🐈 📷 by @grbphotos 🖤 #gaealady #witchesofinstagram #eleven #cats #catgram #monochrome #blackandwhite #burlesque #halloween #october #portraiture #queen #surrendertotheflow #ladyandhercat #artphotography #artnoveau #witchywoman #philosophy
"Your clothes conceal much of your beauty, yet they hide not the unbeautiful.  And though you seek in garments the freedom of privacy you may find in them a harness and a chain.  Would that you could meet the sun and the wind with more of your skin and less of your raiment,  for the breath of life is in the sunlight and the Hand of life is in the Wind." -Kahlil gibran  Let your skin breathe, be comfortable in your skin. Adorn yourself with that which makes you feel simply excellent, all the time. ♡ 📷 by @masonjiller in wine country, #california ♡ . . . . . . . . . . . . #gaealady #danceveryday #burlesque #chicagoburlesque #getoutside #outdoors #artphotography #comfortable #sunkissed #sonoma #vineyard #vintagebathtub #photoshoot #model #yogini #yogaeverywhere #lookup #mondaymusings #raw #galaxy #quotecollective #burlesquedancer #follows #hollows #october

Minneapolis! Let's do this. Day 2 of the #mplsburlesquefest is tonight 💜🔥🙌🔥💜 Whale watching  The Rock and Roll show with  @iamRaygunn last night, realizing that performance is a radical act of both Taking our power BACK through wielding our power in sensuality, sexuality,  and artistic expression & showing the world we never were without it.  It is crucial - right now not just because of current political events, but *always*. Standing strong in our power + radiating out shows the world that we will not let them have the power or the upper hand and that even if they think they have it they don't, in our hearts. 🖤❤🖤 So, while @getunbridled churns out every Thursday in Chicago, we create waves here with @mplsburlesquefest, and other venues across the world do the same and make strong statements through entertainment.  People- how are you more of YOU with what you do?  Minneapolis: I'm so excited to be in you, with your parks and bike lanes and burlesque and twin cities and bridges and hospitality and version of midwestern reality that is both familiar and new simultaneously.  Thank you to @mplsburlesquefest @thetesla.oftease and @elektracute.presents for having me- and to the incredible line up of humans 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 Thanks to #getunbridled @getunbridled and @michellelamour for holding space for this at @untitledchicago every week (live shows all nights) and to @pezphoto for capturing magic in still frame.

The joy of spinning fire! Especially for and with people I love. Every time I light things on fire I'm grateful. ○🔥¤°⚪°¤🔥○ Being a human who has sought-after this connection with this element, every time that I get to burn I feel immense gratitude. Spinning fire is playful and light-hearted sometimes, and also grave and serious. Think about all of the instances of fire in your life, where do you encounter at? Where is fire not necessarily a large flame but a force of heat and combustion that makes things move, or that force and heat in your soul that drives you forward? ○🔥¤°⚪°¤🔥○ 🔥 come train with us:: IGNITE YOUR INNER FLAME fire and ritual performance retreat in Costa Rica Feb 21-27,  2019.

....Wild woman.... What's to write about today that I haven't written about any other day, that I havent thought about any other day? I feel that Instagram is a fantastic challenge for creativity and connection, and also an interesting way for us to spend our time as humans, typing or speaking into these little space phones, posting pictures of real life that we took with these phones or other artificial eyes.  Posting them so other people can see us as we wish to be seen, in a collection that is part life blog, part diary, part photo album. But, public or semi-public. 📒 Did any of you keep journals? Do any of you still do? I know mine is not nearly as filled with drawings and mementos and writing as they were before social media. 🛡📓 Is this a tool for deeper Connection in real life through increased communication, or is it a way that we actually disconnect from life, from our problems, from people in our lives? (I think it can be both, honestly), 🤝 Use technology consciously, with an air of it being a sacred tool which is constantly being improved and is just that, a tool. 📱 And with that, Instagram I hope you have a great day, and come and connect in person with me tonight at belly dance 730 or burlesque 615- at the eco collective in pilsen (2042 w.21st st) . All are welcome. 💜 Or: reach out and let's have a real, deep conversation At the @mplsburlesquefest!!! 💖 📷by @refracted.reality 💜 #gaealady #chicagoburlesque #chicagophotographer #chicago #lakefront #blueveil #silk #inmymelos #thelivinggoddess #gaea #burlesque #skyporn #perspective #perspective_in_focus #modeling #collaboration #mplsburlesque #instagram #instalove #technology #connection #whattosay #gia #gialady

Let the sun shine . As autumn falls, the year moves along. Im so blessed in abundance - and sometimes that abundance and fullness itself is stressful. I'm easing into the flow, again and again. . This weekend was the last #freakeasy at its underground location of 10+ years. I went to dance church on Sunday, Waking at 3am to dress and get my booty bouncing to the soul filled Chicago house music of some of my favorite humans spinning tunes, dancing with my best friends, and wielding sunrise fire on the bar to a room of amazing humans in my favorite state- unveiled and open and joyful. The importance of celebration & ritual & parties to be open, vulnerable, and celebratory with other humans to loud music is an experience that transforms and allows for experiential growth and human connection. There's nothing like it, and I'm so grateful to be in a space where we relish these experiences and take them very seriously and playfully at the same time. Countless collaborations have emerged from these dance parties, inspiration and the groundwork for all the Performing I do right now, these people believed in me and told me that I was a dancer and needed to dance. And here I am. ♡♡ grateful. . More morning dance parties, please . Wednesday: chicago come dance with me!
