CAPTIVATION

CAPTIVATION

Who in our lives, captivates us?  What is Captivation and why do we feel it so strongly under the spell of someone in our lives?

Let us first take a look at the meaning of captivation in our Webster Dictionary.  Captivaton-1.  attract and hold the interest and attention of;  charm

Daily Wisdom Word Meaning:  1.  To hold, spellbound, another human being to yourself, with charm, charisma and mystification.

We have all met someone in our lives, that simply captivates us due to their extraordinary qualities that are special and meaningful to us.  To be captivated by another human being, means to get lost in their influence, as well as infatuated with them.  Infatuation is similar to captivation, but captivation is more seductive and powerful.

I have been captivated in my life by few people, as I believe we all have flaws, but there was one special person that absolutely blew me away with his knowledge, power and believe it or not, his humility.  I think what made me so captivated by him, was the fact that he stood out from all the rest, yet he seemed unaware he had these mesmerizing qualities.  This made my attraction to him all the more powerful.

We have all met individuals who are captivating, and attractive to us, but usually they are aware of their magnetism and use it to their advantage.  This was not the case, with this individual.  He had much power, over me, because I admired him greatly and ws truly captivated by him.  He could have taken full advantage of this fact, but did not, respecting me as an equal, even though I treated him more like a God.

He could tell my infatuation and captivation was there for him, but seemed unaware of all of his positive attributes himself..  This quality stood out above and beyond the rest, and today I look back on him still.  We tried to carry on a long distance relationship, that did not work out, but I will always hold him fondly in my heart and am grateful he didn’t take advantage of me.

One thing about being captivated by someone, is your vulnerability when interacting with them.  Because your placing them on a padastel, they, in your mind are not equal to you, and to be captivated by someone is most often, personal, and this type of connection and admiration of another, is rare.

Think in your minds today, how often you have been captivated by another human being, and it will shock you if your able to count one peron in your lifetime.  Thank you for reading about captivation with me today!  Have a beautiful, blessed, and captivaing day.

The mystery that is you Is deep and unfathomable; It pulls strongly on womens’ Inner beings. You know no doubt of your power- that innexorable energy. Would that our minds Were unchained from you!
