Energy Vortices are Weird
Sylver did indeed come over, and we pow-wowed on ideas on how to conduct the perfect handfasting. Ideas in her head… I love them. She’s always full of great ones. So we chattered on that for about an hour and a half, where “ideas” would’ve turned into actual “planning”, which ain’t quite where we’re going just yet. Just ideas and information.
So we spent the rest of the night doing energy work. Sylver had the idea of working with vortices, so we grounded and drew up a basic energy vortex. Dropped it, and started drawing elemental vortices, and we both found a very strange thing… our weakest elements were the easiest to draw, and our strongest elements were the hardest. I can draw water and fire very easily, but when I drew a fire vortex, it was very, very hard to control. Water didn’t want to come up at all… one side kept falling, so I had to strain to pull it up and keep it all level and cycling. So it was very interesting, but very frustrating to have my “easiest” elements be such a bitch to control. But rather cool that ones I have the hardest time connecting with were the easiest to work with. I’d always been kind of skittish with air energy, and earth was next to impossible to tap… now that I know how to tap them, I feel much better about them.
There are more parts to the exercise that we didn’t even get to try… gonna have to keep working with those difficult vortices before we even dare attempt step-two or step-three.
Now that we have a newer level of work, I really need to finish writing up our first set of exercises. I’ve had step-one of exercise-one written up for months now, but never started writing step-two, or exercise two. Work work work. I might have to consider putting those up here somewhere, once I get them finished.
