To Make Light

Darn it all to heck, the other day, an acquaintance of mine asked me out on a date--via text. Darn darn darn. I would much rather not deal with this kind of thing.

It would have been my impulse in the past to call him back and be all serious, "I'm so sorry, I know this is awkward, but I'm not interested, I have a boyfriend. I hope it will still be cool when we run in to each other again. Thanks. Bye." Ahhhh, I would have been so scared; afraid to hurt his feelings. But thanks to my teacher Jen, I've learned to keep it light. I don't have to explain myself, actually, I don't even have to use very many words; if I'm comfortable, he has a chance at being comfortable too.

I did call him back, rather than text, I wanted him to hear my voice, being nice, making light of it. This is no big deal: "Thank you so much for asking. I have a boyfriend. Hope you're having a great day. See you soon." Not so scary. 

If you must know, I'm super into sound healing right now. We have all these great sound healers here in town and I love going to Gong Journeys and the Crystal Bowl Sound Baths. Last night, at the Sound Bath, Jvala led us through a meditation turning the area of our crown and down through our spine into light, pure golden light. That imaging translates to relaxation and to relax the spine and all of the nerves around is a very powerful practice.

I can make light. And so can you.
