Note: This article is a nod to the couple at the Hella Mega tour whose energy was infectious and inspiring!
After weeks of almost nonstop work I was looking forward to getting a break at the Hella Mega show.
The weather was perfect, the atmosphere around the stadium mellow yet festive, the bands way cool.
It turns out the show was not only an opportunity to relax, it was a chance to confirm a few facts.
In other words, work.
As I’m in the process of releasing a book that’s part of the World of EMF it makes sense that at least part of my focus was on how I was feeling in a stadium filled with technology. As I sat listening to Wheezer, looking up at a blue sky, I realized I felt completely 100% normal for the first time in I don’t remember.
The psychological toll EMF Sensitivity can take on a person means that even after physical symptoms are gone there’s a bit of PTSD to deal with.
I looked around at the sheer number of cell phones, the stage setup, thought of all the tech at the food and beverage stands and the fact that being in downtown Seattle, I was exposed to a lot of WiFi including 5G, And yet I felt totally fine.
Rather than return to my seat after eating I decided to enjoy the show from a higher perch where I could do some people watching.
One of a writer’s favorite activities.
I took in the energy of the place, the ages of the fans, noting how many cross-generational groups there were and how cool that was in terms of bringing people together for fun.
Sanity Check. Though I’d been enjoying myself I kept taking an internal pulse as if I couldn’t believe how good and how normal I felt. Recognizing this might become a bit too distracting and I’d actually stop enjoying myself if I wasn’t careful I tried to redirect my focus to just enjoying the music.
Health Check. The sun hadn’t even set when the stadium became filled with thousands of cell phone lights. Unfortunately, as cool as it was, it was a reminder that there was a time not long ago I couldn’t have been in such an environment without being sick.
The thought definitely distracted me from the show.
After acknowledging this truth I again confirmed I felt completely fine and tried to redirect my focus to the music.
Fun Check. Well the universe must have been listening because the next thing I know my focus was on the most enthusiastic couple I have seen in decades.
Not since the H. O. R. D. E. Festival at Pine Knob.
Standing not far from me they held hands while they danced, periodically looking at each other with smiles that rivaled the cell phones in lighting up the space.
The joy just spilled out of them.
Reality Check. A most interesting thing happened. Like with the cell phone lights, seeing their energy and enthusiasm, their pure joy at being alive and being together – connected to the joy of thousands of others – I again became aware of how normal I felt only this time instead of bringing my focus back to EMF Sensitivity it took me to that same joy.
The joy of being connected to thousands gathered for fun, the joy of being connected to happiness.
With that energy going through me I saw the musicians in a new light, taking in not only the energy with which they moved around the stage but the happiness they radiated.
They were very happy to be there.
I then noted the happiness of the stadium guy standing at the top of the aisle where my seat was, of the woman who poured a cabernet for me, of the couples sitting at the tables throughout the Club Level where I was standing.
The couple continued dancing, smiling, sharing their joy with any and all who might be close enough to see them.
Trust me, it was contagious. I saw lots and lots of smiles after people caught sight of them.
In addition to feeling the happiness I was treated to another bonus being near them, inspiration.
A creative’s best friend.
Not one to miss an opportunity to write I pulled out my phone and typed notes that will find their way into an upcoming Port Gallatan story. Just like the World of EMF and the Hella Mega experience, it will be a story with a happy ending.
As a result of new information gained by going to the concert I will be adding content to the upcoming book Ignoring the Rules: An Intriguing Approach to Resolving Calcium Toxicity. This will push the release date.
