Over the last few weeks, I had a horrible pain in my left leg. I could not figure out the origin point. Acupuncture was helping for short periods of time but wasn't eliminating it completely. A massage, however, did pinpoint the origin of pain...it was actually my sacrum that was way out of whack. As I was laying on the massage table and feeling some relief, I thought about the sacral chakra and wondered if it had been blocked. I don't know much about chakras except that they are energy centers in our body. The sacral chakra is about feeling and sexuality and when the energy is flowing you are open to intimacy and passion.
The day after my massage, I had a first date. I was unusually nervous that morning getting ready. I couldn't stop shaking and I had no idea what was wrong with me. I don't remember the last time I felt that way. So I headed off a bit early to meet my date...I just couldn't stay in the house any longer.
I'm not going to give you all the details of the date, just a few highlights. We met at 1pm and parted ways around 9pm with plans already made to meet the next day. We were both like giddy school kids. The conversation was easy and the silences comfortable. And the energy coursing through me never let up. A brush of his hand against mine, and it just shot right through me. That night I barely slept. Logically none of it makes sense. He says it magic and maybe that's it.
The next evening I talked to a friend who does energy work (he does more than that but its easier to say energy work) who explained that the energy I'm feeling is my chakras opening and the energy is flowing freely. This immediately made sense to me especially after having my massage and thinking about my sacral chakra. He gave me some great ideas on how to calm the energy enough to sleep, which helped immensely.
Now we're a couple days out from that first date and every time I get a text message or phone call, the energy intensifies...kind of like butterflies in your stomach but different. I can't explain it and quite honestly I don't want to. I'm getting used to this new way, this swirling energy, and I like this feeling. I'm taking it one day at a time and enjoying each moment.
I may not be writing much about the online dating world but I have a feeling I'm going to be writing about other more exciting things. Stay tuned...
