Hypnosis in Calakmul

I wrote this when I was in an enlightened (the only way I can describe how I felt) state on top of Calakmul’s 2nd largest pyramid.  Calakmul is a huge Mayan site located in the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve in Campeche, Mexico.  The depiction below describes me in a state that I wish I could be in forever.  Time stood still, I felt as though I belonged to that place in that moment.  If the writing lacks description it’s because the noise in my mind had silenced.  I needed to write this today to remember what it felt like.

The air tastes sweet – the smell of sweet Jasmine flowers perfumes the air.  I feel like I could stay up here all day – so in peace.  Maybe it’s the hike it took to get up here or maybe it’s the quiet and only the sound of birds and leaves rustling.  I’m in a hypnotic state almost so blissfully peaceful.  No body part bothers me; not even the toe that I broke or the blister on my right pinky toe.  Not even my legs that were sore from yesterday’s hike; not even my back from hauling my 40 pound backpack in and out, up and down, out and around.

I feel as though each time the wind blows she’s a hypnotist snapping her fingers and saying “deeper!”  I don’t mind the ants crawling all over my body, nor do I mean being left here alone.  I take a breath and all the trees appear a lusher green than I had see before.  Colors dance before me and “deeper!” the wind blows once more.

    I've felt in states like this before. Sometimes my mind is quieted as well, and sometimes it is not, and it's only my body.Lovely memory!Merimerigoesround.blogspot.com
