And Then He Touched Me

…and it was all over. I was mush. I was a puddle on the floor. I was the ocean, the air, the sun, everything and nothing. I was he. He was me.

It never ceases to amaze me how “open” I am and how other people can simply floor me with the simplest of gestures. Sometimes, I’m waylaid by a soft look in one’s eyes, or I’m hypnotized by the barely perceptible smile at the edges of someone’s mouth, the curl of hair across a long neck; other times it’s a well-crafted sentence uttered softly in the room, the timbre in a voice that I love or the brush of one’s skin against my skin; all of these things (so easily and randomly) thrill me out of myself.

Recently, a friend grabbed my hand and I practically fainted from his touch. It was so amazing. I spent the next several minutes catching my breath and trying really hard to pay attention to what was being said. I know there was talking, but I have no idea what was said. I was GONE!

With that one simple touch, a touch that most would think nothing of, the rock of my heart was blasted open and the shock of sudden, penetrating sunlight illuminated every square inch of me. I was breathless, spinning. That touch radiated through the palm of my hand, a silky electricity, raced up my arm, sped through my chest and gently snapped my heart chakra wide open, where that silk-strand then softly landed and fluttered there, heaving against me with the sweetest, most mesmerizing pulse.

Here’s the crazy thing. I can still feel that energy from him. I can conjure up that moment over and over and still feel it radiating through my body like it just happened. But, it’s deeper than this. It’s both of us together that makes it so intense. It’s the coalescing of energies that builds the monument to the moment. It’s the exchange that I’m after, the heart below the heart, the words below the words, the subatomic particles below the atoms.

And, I’m so deeply appreciative, so adoring of this open channel, so in awe of him, his energy, his heart, and this connection between us. Because, even if he would not characterize the exchange in quite the same way as me, it did happen; I know that he feels it. I know that it’s happening all of the time. It’s happening to all of us on earth. And, it means something. Something big.

Namaste, my friends. Feel this with your lovely body, with your soul, pull these words into you and hold them against you. Take this in and go forth looking for opportunities to open your channel. There is nothing to fear here, my darlings. There is only love. Use it.

      Pua, Thank you so much for stopping by and reading this, my sista. It means so much to me that my words and emotions live inside of other people as I carry theirs forward, too. Love to you, honey!

    This is beautiful. Breathtaking. Eye-opening. I have never felt this before, yet I know what you’re talking about. I understand. I get it. I know this is possible. It really is all about love. I know this feeling will hit me one day, but I am not waiting for it. I am not looking for it. I am not thinking about it. When it hits, it will hit. And I hope that it will just be amazing as what you described.

      Hi, my sweet friend, X (slapthesunshine)!
      Thank you so much for coming over and give a read, honey. One day, you will feel this for someone special. I now feel it for friends, animals, plants, loved-ones at varying levels and times. I feel it for very special people in my life and with whom I have regular contact. It’s the coolest, most amazing sensation, but all humans can achieve this and you know that it’s going to happen for you someday. It will! I have been actively working on heightening my sensitivity by working on energy meridians in my body and raising my general vibration to a higher frequency and more often. It’s great fun! Big hugs to you, sis. XOXO

      Joanna, awwwww…what a sweet couple you two are! I love that after 20 years, you are still so into your Hubby and so happy together. I love my dude, too and still get weak in the knees when he’s around. We’ve been together for 19.5 years. It’s great! Big hugs and kisses to you, sister. And, Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you, love-birds!

    It’s a natural high when we are open to the energy/chi/shakti in each other. Sending good vibes your way. So glad I have a bit of time today to catch up with your blog. Waving at you wildly from the Garden State.

    I had a chance this past week to give a really good deep-tissue massage to a friend-of-a-friend that my wife and I had only previously known online, and the energy-transfer between us was _amazing_. Not quite as lightening-bolt as your experience but profound and emotional. Mainly because she’s also (like you Liz) a very spiritually aware and open person. It reinforced what I love about massage when I get to work on someone like that I feel recharged and even a bit ‘high’ afterwards.

      Adri, OMG…love this. I’m so smiling right now and I can totally feel this from you, my friend. I got the “download” completely.

      How joyous, how sweet, how amazing this is and how life-affirming! I love that you are so open and spiritual yourself. Life, man’s potential, and our consciousness is so much bigger and more profound than any of us realize. Life is so much more than what we see and touch. It’s much, much bigger and much more beautiful.

      Thank you, from my soul, for sharing this, Adri. I’m literally BEAMING that you experienced this with your friend and shared it with me. Now, I feel a little high! 🙂

      P.S. I wish you lived in the states. I would come see you guys often.
