That Gave Me Tingles

Today I closed my eyes and Shyla (aka Shiela, but the y is more exotic), Shyla laid her peppermint oil-dipped hands across my face. I inhaled as her fingers pressed into my cheeks and slid up to my temples dancing across my forehead. It wasn't a tap dance...more like a tango. Her finger tips moving langurously, seductively pressing deep. The room was dimly lit and with my eyes closed, I was pretty well relaxed. That's when I saw a purple glowing circular patch in my field of vision. My lids were closed but it seemed as if the patch of purple was right between my eyes. Its edges were irregular. I watched it for awhile, seeing how it reacted to Shyla's touch. She massaged my head and a circular path of green appeared atop the purple. Mind you, Shyla didn't mention I might experience any of this lava-lamp-like show in my mind. But it was peaceful and enthralling and I watched as the green patch slowly expanded over the purple...expanding and then contracting, morphing as it did until it overtook the purple. "What was that color?" I asked when she was done. "What did you see?" she asked. I described it to her and she seemed surprised. "That's your third eye," she said. "You saw the energy flow in your body being corrected. The green healed the purple. Not everyone can see that. You must be very atune." I smiled. That gave me tingles.


  1. Don't mean to be a jerk, much less a d_ck...

    so, seriously, I mena this humbly...


    A phosphene is an entoptic phenomenon characterized by the experience of seeing light without light actually entering the eye. The word phosphene comes from the Greek words phos (light) and phainein (to show).[1] Phosphenes can be directly induced by mechanical, electrical, or magnetic stimulation of the retina or visual cortex as well as by random firing of cells in the visual system.

    very atune
