You Set Me Right

A tingling sensation, zipping up and down my spine, released through electrical currents, across every open ion channel in my nervous system: endorphins.

They flood the body to relieve pain, to soothe overexcited synapses, to produce pleasure and calm: an experiential response to physical/psychological/spiritual intensity. An inborn mechanism to ground this earthbound form, a tether between all: bodymindspirit.

There is no quaking in my gut, no knocking of my knees, or trembling agitations in my hands, when you speak to me.

Only a shiver, a reverberating quiver, a gentle vibration resetting each vertebrae in place, disc by disc.

My body at ease, my mind engaged in this very moment; a physical recognition of my soul aligning with yours.
