Sure I get how that term is used in a different context (like a muscle spasm), sorry if that confused you. But there is no problem understanding it the way I have used it, because the definition fits. It's "involuntary" in the sense you're not making a conscious choice or decision to do it, are you ? It just happens.

Quote:
involuntary
/ɪnˈvɒlənt(ə)ri/

adjective

adjective: involuntary
1.

done without will or conscious control.
"she gave an involuntary shudder"

synonyms: reflex, reflexive, automatic, knee-jerk, mechanical, unconditioned; More

Now, shut up and train, then maybe you will get the fact that the meaning/definition of the term which I have bolded for you in the above fits the experience being discussed just fine.
