"Music Nidra"

One of my favorite songs is "May This Be Love" written by Jimi Hendrix preformed by Meshell Ndegeocello. The strings and sitar sound is very sultry and soothing. The bass guitar and drum pulses of a heart beat with the soft release of a hidden hurt. The rhythm flows like a pebble gently placed in the center of a lake. My ears and spirit are mesmerized by the ripples flowing, expending, gently undulating taking me under a yoga nidra like trance. As the smokey vocals slowly appear expressing with passion the terms of endearment. My imagination runs to moments in my life where I know love is safe. My heart fills with light accepting the desire of the songs title "May This Be Love"
