Dancing with God

'Dancing with God'

I don’t know where this expression came from. The only thing I know is that I heard it in my mind while my eyes were half closed. Lying on my bed, trying to sleep, I felt my pulse rising and heart pounding against my chest so hard that my whole body started resonating with the heart beat. I could almost feel my temples throbbing and blood rushing through my veins; lying motionless in a helpless state, I could feel my respiration slowing down. Suddenly a haze of colors filled my vision and I could see, even with my eyes closed, splashes of beautiful and bright colors surrounding my head. Absolutely clueless of what was happening to me, I surrendered to the mystical power which seemed to have overpowered me at that moment.

An Esoteric experience

I felt myself disintegrating into countless pieces, each of which, to my surprise, looked exactly like me. It seemed as if I was watching my clones with my own eyes. The feeling was inexplicable and beyond the understanding of my ethereal mind. I saw my clones dancing in ecstasy to the tune of a melodious music which itself was mesmerizing. There was, most certainly, everything celestial about the whole experience. It felt like transcending, beyond the limits of my physical body, into a timeless zone filled with peace, tranquility and spectacular white light. While those dancing beams of light seeped into me, all those deep seated fears and worries which had been troubling me for ages seemed to disappear. I stood there bathing in that white and flawlessly crystalline light with an angelic smile on my face. I had never felt so filled up and complete in my life before.

Dancing had been a dream…

When I was younger, I used to picture myself dancing in a moonlit and starry night with the man of my dreams. Sounds like a usual fantasy of any woman in her adolescence! I might have lived on with this unfulfilled dream and possibly buried it somewhere in my subconscious mind unknowingly. That perhaps would explain the phenomenal experience I had. As I believe in “all for a reason” concept, I strongly feel that some unseen power wanted me to see how fulfilling and magical it would be to dance with God rather than any earthly being. I’m sure dancing with a man, no matter how exquisitely charming and loving he might be, would never have brought tears of joy to my eyes, the way dancing with my Higher Self did. For the first time in my life I was shown what exactly ‘harmony’ between ‘ethereal self’ and ‘higher self’ meant.

When Gods dance

I learnt that ‘dancing’ does not have to be taken in the literal sense alone; it could mean dancing to the tune of the Almighty and surrendering to Him in all situations, no matter how good or worse. It could even mean rejoicing with Him and merging our own entity with His, as we happen to be an inseparable part of His being. It means being aware of our source and final destination; we are born from that ‘eternal light’ and are destined to merge in the same light at the end of our long and burdensome journey. No wonder we have stories of Gods dancing in Hindu and Greek mythology. Terpsichore, better known as mother of divine singing (‘Terpo’ means delight and ‘chorus’ stands for dance), was the Muse of dance and dramatic chorus as per Greek mythology. She is mostly depicted playing lyre while in some other pictures she is shown with a triangle and flute. The same way, Lord Krishna, in Hindu mythology is shown playing flute while dancing with his female devotees who are shown gyrating to his music notes under the magical spell of His love. Likewise Hindu scriptures show pictures of Lord Shiva (Nataraja) doing the ‘dance of death’ (Tandava) symbolizing the end of this world.

Ecstasy of Dancing with God

The feeling of oneness with God can be described as simple Ecstasy which fills or rather nourishes our soul to the deepest and unexplored level. Nothing can be as rejuvenating, resuscitating and energizing as dancing with Him to His tune. We spend our entire lives looking for someone who could make us feel happy and alive but ironically, we fail to dig into a massive resource of happiness which we all are born with. That wealth of happiness lies dormant in us, waiting for us to discover it, and rejoice in being the proud owners of the hidden treasure. Don’t waste time looking around….look inside your own self!

Anjali: Your description of your experience gave me goosebumps, The experience you had of connection with the Divine is a blessing! The part that got my attention is when you felt all your traumas and sorrows melt away, that is a merging with Love. Thank you for sharing this experience.

VioletSun: It indeed is a blessing. God is always kind and gracious towards His children. It's only we humans who fail to see His presence around us. He watches over us and shows us the way to mitigate our pain. Thx for your kind comments.

It is really true.Dancing with God is possible because you longed to do that. Simlar experience is that I wanted to talk to God for a business proposal's advise.I was thinking about it. I did not disclose to anyone. I did not talk aloud about it. Suddenly a lady walking beside in the street replied with a clear voice. God exists to every one. Thanks Anjalichugh

anjalichugh 7 years ago from New York Author

easetravels: You're right. God does exist and makes His presence felt to His children when its time. We just need to believe in Him and do the right thing. Rest he does on his own. Thx for visiting and sharing your experience.

Vision is not sight. It is the palette upon which our senses paint pictures. You described going beyond the senses that filter truth beautifully! When you consider that the physical realm of the universe is but half of what really exists, it makes sense that your "Dance with God" was truly an experience of crossing over into the part of the universe only seen without sight!

Tom Koecke: Thanks for understanding. I thought people would call me a freak if I share it in a forum but I was relieved to see a contrary (favorable) response. Thx for reading this hub and share your views.

I am in awe! -Beautiful divine intervention with your dance with God! Ostensibly any time you face any challenges in life all you have to do is reflect on this Esoteric experience that is etched in your heart and mind and it will carry you through- lift your spirits and warm your heart.

" Suddenly a haze of colors filled my vision and I could see, even with my eyes closed, splashes of beautiful and bright colors surrounding my head."

"I felt myself disintegrating into countless pieces, each of which, to my surprise, looked exactly like me. It seemed as if I was watching my clones with my own eyes."

"I stood there bathing in that white and flawlessly crystalline light with an angelic smile on my face. I had never felt so filled up and complete in my life before. "

Bless You,

my-success-guru: You definitely have a knack ...or should I say a natural talent of sifting wheat from the chaff. Picking up the vital segments from this hub must have been real simple for you. You're right in saying that such divine intervention can be good enough for helping an ordinary person like me to navigate thru tough times. Thx very much for your generous comments.

Your poll asks if we have experienced things like this. Option C: "Things like this don't exist." I'm glad to see that no one voted for option C. If you have experienced this you know it exists. If you haven't you can still listen to those it has happened to. Or if you are like me you have had 'similar' things happen in your life but interpret them differently.

I lot of people describe what they experience in their minds and it seems there are so many people who experience similar things. Is this God speaking to us? Is He warning us of what is to come? Is God just allowing us to experience an enjoyable level of existence? Or is it an evil spirit tricking us? Could the Bible be correct when it describes Satan as the great deceiver? Could Satan be pretending to be an angel of light to make people think that they are ok, that all will be well after death, that they don't need Jesus? Or is this type of experience simply our brains taking a vacation, shifting into neutral for a while, or doing maintenance like a computer defrag? Is it anything more than a dream? Is it anything less than a glimpse of eternity? Lots of questions. No answers. But it makes you think. And thinking can be fun sometimes.

anjalichugh 7 years ago from New York Author

Steve Orris: For me, thinking is not exactly fun...it's stimulating! Thinking is what makes one a 'seeker'. Without being a seeker first, one cannot ever see the 'Truth'. Even I don't have answers to all those questions you've asked but I would still like to believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thx for taking out time to read this hub.

So spiritually beautiful. As I read your hub I started to cry. I've read beautiful words before but yours wasn't just beautiful. For, within your words I saw God. As I cried Elohim told me you are his pure and much loved child.

His love came through my very own heart.

God has surrounded you with angels for protection and blessings. Ask anything of God, He wants to give to you even more then he already has.

anjalichugh 6 years ago from New York Author

Hi Deborah: For a moment I felt as if God was trying to send me His message of love and assurance through you. Very few times one gets to read such beautiful words as you wrote for me. I bow my head in gratitude. Thx for reassuring me that there's someone watching over me. I need to hear this more often. I can't thank you enough for your extremely kind and affectionate words. (Hugs)


Deborah Sexton 6 years ago

It was a message from God...So you were right in your feelings.

After I got this message for you..the love God was sending you, continued emitting from my own heart.

It was so strong it overwhelmed me.

It has only been one other time this has happened.

Dear Deborah: You filled my heart with immense happiness. Thx for showing so much love to me. God bless and take care.

Beautiful hub.

Words of wisdom and written by the magical hand of god.

Thanks for such an inspiring piece of writing. You've touched s few hearts on here.

Very enchanting :-)

anjalichugh 6 years ago from New York Author

TheAllSeeingEye: I really didn't know what I was writing at that time. Trust me when I read this hub now it doesn't seem to me that the words are mine. Thank you very much for your kind words.

When you write from the soul you are writing through the mind of god. It is a beautiful expression in reference to some one's acquaintance with the divine source. Dancing with God touched me within for we all share God's rhythm and music within.

Thanks again, I am joining your fan club and am going to read through more of your stuff. I expect to be feeling your words as they are from the heart. :-)

anjalichugh 6 years ago from New York Author

TheAllSeeingEye: I would like to believe that these were the words of God. I don't consider myself worthy of such grace though. Thx again for being so generous to me. I'm really indebted to my online friends like you who keep reassuring me about the Almighty's presence around me. God bless.

Thanks anja for sharing your experience.

And what wonderful comments and dialogue and sharing.

Refreshing.

May i ask,since the experience,what have you been doing?.

Have you wanted to have the experience again,maybe looking for something like it again?.I know i had a spiritual type experience a while back and a large part of me couldn't rest as i wanted it again.(Or thought i did).

Do you have a spiritual practice of any kind that may support the gift that you were obviously given.

Happy 2010.


anjalichugh profile image

anjalichugh 6 years ago from New York Author

Greenheart: Yes I've had such experiences on and off but every time it has happened without any conscious effort from my side. You made me feel great by reminding me of my gift (which I'm not aware of). All I know is that such experiences leave me peaceful and happy. I don't follow any particular spiritual practice except Yoga which is also not regular due to lack of time. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments.

Thanks for your reply!

I love the way you say they happened "without any conscious effort...".

Interesting to hear that you were a lawyer and what you learned from that.My father is a retired lawyer.

Also,interesting to hear of your environmental interests.

I would be grateful if you would look at one of my hubs about The Amazon Herb Company.And leave a comment.

Thank-you.It is http://hubpages.com/hub/Amazon-Herb-Company

And may your heart be opened by all the gifts that come your way.

wow...great concept! I feel like dancing with God too i.e surrendering to the Almighty which would bring immense joy to me! How can I experience this? Olate,I am finding myself drawn to spiritualism. Is the sign of a slow beginning of my spiritual journey? I am not sure but I have decided to start meditation and see where I go from there!

anjalichugh 5 years ago from New York Author

Sonia:

You're on the right track...just keep walking on it. Your spirit will guide you every step of the way and wherever you need help, it will come to you if you ask for it. It is the yearning of our soul that propels us in the direction of spiritual enlightenment. Its a slow process ...all one needs to do is to take the first step forward and the rest is taken care of by itself. You've taken that first step so stick to it. May God show you the way. :)
