Next time you're in the shower, soap up your body last. Go ahead and turn off the faucet, once you've got a good balance of lather and steam, to make bubbles in the ring of your hands. Slowly make them larger, until the bubble is ringed by your arms, hands, fingertips barely touching, and chest. Watch the bubble's surface, the reflection of yourself stretch and writhe.
Take a breath, lift your
hands over your head, still keeping the ring and bubble intact, and dive
into it. Sometimes it helps to soap up your nose too.
The first time, I closed my eyes. I still close them, the transition is rough enough without having to watch it.
The first time, I came out of the other side of the bubble under water. I still do sometimes, but my aim is getting better.
first time, I had to lather up my whole head, slick back my hair, and
dislocate my shoulders. It still hurts, but it's worth it.
The first time, I couldn't get back.
say some people can cross just by holding their hands out in front of
them, index fingers and thumbs forming a ring. Through that ring is all
most people see, all they can see, all they want to see. Focus on the
ring, until something steps into your peripheral vision. Step sideways
and follow it, keeping your eyes on the ring of your index fingers and
thumbs. Step sideways through the veil.
The first time, that's how I got back.
