Last night I went dancing at Barcelona for dubstep night. I used to get overwhelmed by crowds because there is so much stimuli. It was easier to observe and have reactionary thoughts rather than direct the experience by choosing my thoughts carefully. I would worry someone would step on my feet. Then it happened. I would worry about getting spilled on. Then it would happen. I mean, come on! It doesn't have to be like that! Here is what I learned about weaving magick through a crowd.
Interact with love
Smile. Hug. Kelly and I saw this new friend of ours and it was sort of awkward at first. I didn't know how to act around him. Then Kelly hugged him and I was like, "oh yeah, I can just look at him with love!" And then we danced together and it was hot.
Focus on having a good time
When I run, I think the same thought over and over: "this feels so good, I'm in the flow." This helps me keep a positive attitude about a sometimes strenuous activity. I realized in the club that if I want to have a good time dancing, I have to be just as focused. As soon as I started thinking "this feels so good, I'm in the flow," my experience became super fun!
It's all a dance
Funny I should realize this while... dancing. When you direct your thoughts, enter a meditative state, and allow your body to do what it already knows, the crowd parts for you. People make room for you. When you are flexible with where you go, there is always somewhere to flow. If you think a negative thought, the crowd will close in on you. You'll get knocked in the head with an elbow. But then all you have to do is direct your thoughts back to the positive side and you will be one with the crowd again.
