Group Consciousness: Non of the other women finished the book either. We all basically stopped at the end-ish of the third chapter. It was a non-fiction. We thrive on non-fiction and typically only read one novel every quarter but we just couldn't wrap our brains around this one book.
BUT....the book inspired one of the best get-togethers ever! The conversation last night was absolutely the deepest, diversified, reflective, authentic....not enough adjectives to describe it.
We laughed, we cried! Our voices got loud and excited and, at times, we almost whispered.
There was, at times, a sense of reverence in the room, enfolding us in an ambiance of the Divine participating, or at least observing!
More moments that I would like to admit, I am hoping the Divine went out for a walk! Women can take conversation to so many levels....oh, men, if you only knew!!!
At the end of the evening, someone mentioned auras. Two of us had experience seeing auras, two had not. We decided to look at auras. First try, J, who had never seen an aura, saw the aura around her hand; a glowing blue and yellow around all the fingers and a soft pink down the side of her pinkie finger, wrist and headed up her arm.
We showed them how our auras will connect and stretch out, much like silly putty (OMG, did I just age myself?)
The aura around my hand and between my fingers was a soft blue turning to purple, the shade gradually getting deeper.
Have you ever tried seeing or feeling your aura? Have you seen other people's auras?
p.s. we were sober!
