A couple of weeks ago, I posted “My spiritual awakening story.” In hindsight, it would have better been named “A spiritual awakening story.” That one just happened to be dramatic and unusual. Actually now, I think they happen all the time on a micro level.
I’ve gotten some perspective on that. It seemed at the time (and until just now) to have happened out of the blue.
Of course it did not.
In the course of writing my yoga teacher bio a couple of days ago, I realized I had been doing yoga for several years when that event occurred. Yoga totally opens up the energy channels. I was ripe for it to happen.
Too bad I didn’t have a network of fellow yogis to share with and learn from. And still, I paid attention to my chakras after that, and I knew that opening was good.
Today during my sitting, I experienced something much less dramatic that I’m still curious about.
I meditated for over an hour today, and I opened my eyes for quite a bit of that time. When open, my eyes were in a soft, unfocused gaze similar to the peripheral vision gaze.
What I noticed was a barely noticeable phosphorescence between things – in the spaces between trees and rocks, trees and trees, rocks and water, earth and trees, water and trees, and so on.
It had a faint shimmery quality.
I’ve seen something similar around plants when nightwalking, but never in the daytime.
I thought to myself, either I’m seeing energy, or I’m seeing humidity!
If you have any knowledge or experience with this, I’d love to share – in the comments or offline.
