Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer day 25 NETZACH sh b' NETZACH
Endurance Within Endurance, Sustained Dance in the Journey.

Dance of Victory
3 weeks and 4 days of Counting the Sephirot haOmer

Fan Palm Dance
Garden of Joy

These Palm fronds look to me as if they are expressing in dancing-- celebration of Netzach, victory. 
One warrior in the center, maybe a Caregiver Angel Warrior, maybe someone 'surviving' has just returned home, within willpower and determination, and prevailing, all the dancers meet the frond and encircle frond and they dance, an endurance dance of joy. 

The journey has left central frond a bit straight, and dancers open their wings to embrace and celebrate, and have frond feel the freedom of victory. 
From where does the strength come to endure, and to reach victory?

I experience that JOY in how we can go forward in Netzach, be in Netzach, and not only in war in difficult situations in battle. 
In Netzach we can journey, travel, succeed, meet our goals, and in abunDance--dance.
Netzach sh b'Netzach
Go forward in Joy, Return in Joy.
Form a circle. Dance.
Sing and drum too!

Today I realize that to do the Sephirah HaOmer counting with art and stories illustrating my Omer truths/Psalms, I am in the energy of Netzach sh b'Netzach dancing with personal stamina and endurance. On this day we are halfway through the trek to the mountain as we continue to sustain ourselves in Netzach on our journey.

How much can I endure?
How do I endure?
Especially when trials seem endless.
From the Holy One is where my inner strength comes.
The Source is limitless in supporting each of us.
Can you access all your determination and celebrate victory, 
whether from trials, challenges, or JOY?
