💃 Stim Dancing and Bodily Survival Knowledge
I'm dancing on my own (dancing on my own) I make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go) And that's what they don't know, mmm-mmm That's what they don't know, mmm-mmm But I keep cruising Can't stop, won't stop grooving It's like I got this music In my mind Saying, "It's gonna be alright." Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake I shake it off, I shake it off --Shake It Off
Let’s get unapologetically, autistically wild.
Monkey Mind It's just my monkey mind Monkey Mind It's just my I take him out, and then I sit him down I look him in the eye, and say no more monkeying around Now you look-y here, you gonna leave me alone Cause there's no room here for a little monkey in my home Monkey Mind It's just my monkey mind Monkey Mind It's just my That monkey mind, he likes to eat himself alive Think he's done, and then he takes another bite Now see, I gotta learn to be kind To my monkey mind, cause he'll be with me till I die Monkey Mind It's just my monkey mind Monkey Mind It's just my Monkey Mind by The Bobby Lees
Let’s bolster against stress and pass survival knowledge down.
…flamenco is in itself a ballistic activity with its own built-in reward system that can then bolster the brain against traumatic stress.
…not only can traumatic knowledge be passed down, so can bodily survival knowledge-knowledge about how to survive the debilitating effects and symptoms of PTSD.
If your “threat to life” responses are being re-associated on a regular basis with flamenco responses, slowly, like polishing stone, flamenco has the potential to be an asset for people who are working through PTSD.Because We Have To: Flamenco as Survival Strategy against Detrimental Effects of Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder
Stimming is beautiful.

🫁 My Ty She
I like what that song does with my breathing. I feel like part of the song, a consenting instrument both playing and being played.Ryan
Yes! The care and beauty of the song felt like a metronome or beauty-beacon. I felt it too in my mind’s eye, a calling to open myself wider, but calling with beauty as if to say ‘it’s safe to be beautiful.’AJ

👋🧷 Our Stims
- Picking my scalp
- Pulling my hair
- Pacing back and forth and in circles (when I could walk)
- Wheelchair pacing
- Wheelchair stim dancing
- Music, music, music
I love scratching my head. Love, love, love. The feel from both head and hand is satisfying, comforting, and necessary. Life is more bearable with the pressure of fingernail on scalp. Life is better when I can scratch, pick, peel, and pull.The Self-injurious Stims that I Love
Slouchy beanies with an open pattern are my go to for sensory regulation because they allow me to scratch and pick my scalp without taking the beanie off. I can go through the holes, or I can get my hand up under the hat since it’s slouchy.
Here are my two of my favorite stimming and coping playlists.
