At every opportunity I listen to Debbie Danbrook, a master of the Shakuhachi, an ancient Japanese bamboo flute that she always turns into magic. Last night I attended a concert at which she performed with Mark Daniel, a master of his crystal and Tibetan bowls. Since I was already familiar with the informal venue, I positioned myself at the perfect spot along a long wall where I could meditate while listening to them.
The evening was filled with sacred sounds—loving, relaxing, and deeply touching. I could almost hear the tiptoes of fairies and angels. Mark wrapped up the evening by personally gifting everyone with a touch of an anointing oil while we stayed in the moment, breathing in love and breathing out light. When I finally opened my eyes, the lights were still out and for a brief magical moment the auras of others around me merged into one bright shining glow. I was so very taken aback—honoured, excited, and overwhelmed—by the power of the experience that I could not leave my seat for some time. And when I did I lingered long in the hallway to prolong the magic that had been presented to me.
On the drive home, I thought to myself how even the names of the small side streets that I passed by seemed so special, significant, and somehow festive.
This is the magic and the power of the peace and the love we can find within ourselves.
Thank you, Debbie and Mark, for this sacred experience.
