Kaleidoscope Movie Magic – July 2020
Kaleidoscope group member Lisa Wellington of ReelHappiness.com shares her Reel Happiness Cinema Therapy through a write-up called “Kaleidoscope Group Movie Magic” which ties in with our monthly energy theme. Enjoy!
This month’s selection is Dolemite is My Name.
The true story of Rudy Ray Moore, a failed and discouraged 1970’s nightclub performer who seized an inspiration and spun it into legendary stand-up comedy and cinematic success.
Dir. Craig Brewer. Perf. Eddie Murphy, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Keegan-Michael Key, Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Tituss Burgess, Wesley Snipes. Netflix, 2019.
Note: Dolemite is My Name carries a kind, friendly spirit but is chock full of profanity, more than a few nude shots, and an abundance of racy rhymes. Check out the official trailer to get a sense of it: https://youtu.be/Ws1YIKsuTjQ. If you prefer a gentler alternative, use Bridget Jones’ Diary.
As You Watch
♦ Notice how Rudy is in complete touch with his deepest inner need and value (“I want the world to know I was here”), and how this drives his every action, large and small.
♦ Notice also his acute awareness of the gap: that he was not aligned in a way to connect that inner vision to the outer world (”I don’t offer anything that anyone wants”).
Lisa generously provides a handout with watching suggestions (the above represents just a portion!) & guided journaling exercises created specifically for our Kaleidoscope group. Enjoy benefits & perks like this and more when you Scope It, Shift It, and Click It™, joining our colorful community as a private client!
Each month, we take a deep dive into the month’s colors and energy. I also share what you need to know based on your own personal color preferences.
Plus, we explore readings & affirmations for additional inspiration & loving support. Since we have 2 live calls each month, there’s plenty of open Q&A and group share time with me & our members.
