this is not specifically aikido related, its more in reference to the Energy Awareness work of Robert Nadeau,Shihan, my sensei's sensei. Sorta...

Enthusiasm:

Can't seem to find any. Feeling like a two-dimensional being in a 3D world, just can't find any Dimensionality. no depth. Talked about it this morning in energy class and what I got was that I've been spinning my wheels to stay in one place and maybe I should just Stop Trying, stop Looking-for activity,for understanding,clarity,money,sex,results. And of coure I KNOW this from about the eyebrows,up, but how many times in our lives do we get told the same thing over & over until one day we actually Hear it.
And suddenly I come home from the dojo and don't feel the need to run away from my trailer for the rest of the day, which is generally the plan for weekends, just Be in your Home for the afternoon, and suddenly the Goddess of Cleaning comes to visit and I cancel an afternoon with a new photographer who wants to trade me pix for exchange in me assisting her photograph her boyfriend in drag and could be a fun gig and potentially lucrative because I want to stay home and clean my house.

So I've been spending the last online year mostly hanging out at Tribe.net and so all my journaling has been posted over there, its multi-dimensional and you should ALL go join right now, but until you do, I figgeed I oughta post some of my aiki-related stuff here as well. Here's one from a thread on magical experiences in & out of the dojo,from my tribe, budobabes:

I am 5'3". Sensei is 6'3". Today he was demonstrating iriminage with me and intread of running into his arm and getting thrown, I -completely accidentally and with no intent-ended up just strolling under his arm.
next thing I know I'm flat on my face and my fingertips are about to pop-Yonkyo!
The bruise has changed color twice today already!

and yes, it was Magical.
