Z is for Zap – Pagan Blog Project 2013

So a while back, I asked my wife to massage my hips, because they were aching terribly. (This is what happens when we sleep three to a bed, btw. The Queen isn’t nearly wide enough to let us all sleep comfortably).
She got an electric shock every time her fingers ran over the center of the ache.
This isn’t a particularly big thing, and maybe not much to build a post around, but I think it’s kind of astonishing, if only because it wasn’t voluntary.
I’m not at all sure what was going on there.
I guess where I’m going with this is that I can really only tell that I’m Doing Stuff when I can get some sort of confirmation from someone else on the subject. A case in point is that, more recently, my lovely wife was having a bad night and I was able to help her ground and focus by, energetically speaking, sloshing buckets of cold water over her.
I know it worked because she reacted by relaxing/untensing a little bit more every time I sloshed her.
But I asked her about it the next day in order to get confirmation that it wasn’t just a fluke.
And she felt it.
I don’t know if she felt it as water but she felt it as grounding/calming and reacted as such.
It’s probably not that weird that I need confirmation on these things.
But something I’d like to do is get to the point where I can be my own confirmation point. πŸ™‚
For now, though? Those zaps of confirmation are a big help. πŸ™‚
