Shaking up the senses

by Winter on October 4, 2016

Much of my professional career has been spent teaching, writing and reminding others about the need to be aware, in essence, to “wake up!” There is no doubt that I teach what I need to learn. I constantly remind myself to pay attention, to be aware.

Recently, I took a spill while walking our dogs with Michael and friends. Because I was paying attention to Sneakers, who was very active on the end of the leash I was holding, I didn’t notice that the side walk was uneven. My toe ran directly into a mass of concrete and I went down. (For those of you who would ask, I did not hit my head. I did skin my knees and elbow.) It was truly unexpected and a sudden shock. My friend kept suggesting I lie down and, like a dachshund, I was resistant.

During my ” spill recovery” I looked down at my hands. It wasn’t that I could see through them, or observe the lay lines of energy, but something different. It seemed that I was seeing a biofield. I was seeing layers of energy I had never seen before. It radiated from my hands, legs, feet and the faces and hands of anyone I looked at. My initial feelings of shock turned into fascination and amazement.

As I questioned what was happening, I remembered another time in my life when I felt my senses were not only heightened, but new abilities opened up. In the mid-90’s the front door of our home was kicked in and we were robbed. From the moment we discovered the robbery, my entire body went on high alert and I experienced synesthesia (“joining of the senses”). Synesthesia is a vivid, involuntary experiencing of one sensory mode through another (“tasting” a color, “seeing” a sound, or “smelling” a shape).

It appears that sudden shocks to my system can, and does, heighten my senses. Does consciousness (Spirit) have to be so dramatic to get my attention? Spirit was communicating all along but I was so distracted and caught up with walking the dogs I missed the signs signaling “slow down and pay attention.” (My intuition whispered to let Michael walk the Aussie, but I ignored it.)

Judging by the number of people I see taking “selfies” I think that most of us are so busy, distracted, and caught up with ourselves we miss the signs showing us how to have life go a little more smoothly, how to be in the flow. Spirit is always communicating with us if we just pay attention.

It’s always about the magic…

September 7, 2016

It’s been a while since I posted, and since I have several programs on Medical Intuition coming up, I thought I would give you my perspective on the process. First and foremost it’s about the magic…and we find magic through exploration. After my Gateway week at the Institute I kept returning, not only because of […]

Spinning out of Time

May 8, 2016

It has been several years since I first started suggesting that we “walk with our knees flexed.”  This is because I hold the belief that so much in our lives is subject to change we need to always anticipate the unexpected. And so it is today, which started out (or so I thought) fairly well […]

Who were the witches?

April 10, 2016

“Who were the witches? Where did they come from? Maybe your great, great grandmother was one!” So goes an old song I used to sing.  I remember telling numerous people who would ask if I thought I had been a witch that I had not, or if so, nothing happened to me. But then I […]

What matters…..

January 27, 2016

One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes My dreams give me many posts, almost daily, that never make it to this site.  Early in the wee dawn hours I frequently awaken with the entire […]

Discovering Things We Do Not Understand

October 12, 2015

According to Einstein, “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.” Lately, it seems that most of us have fallen away from the mysterious, from miracles, and from events that cannot be explained. We are “spiritually offline” ignoring things we do not understand. The thought of the mysterious, or “how does the Universe […]

Dog Days of August

August 23, 2015

Local corn, fresh tomatoes, fog-laced mornings, spending morning tea/coffee  and evening sunsets looking out over, frequently, a calm lake.  These are some of the things that I think about when I think of August. A  quick look in our greenhouse shows me that the “volunteers” are thriving.  If ever I believed in Devas, it is […]

What is Medical Intuition?

June 28, 2015

  Recently, many readers have called or emailed me, asking me to tell them more about what the class on medical intuition at the Monroe Institute is all about.  This rainy summer day in Maine seems to be a good time to make that attempt.  (What I say today is always subject to change!) A […]

Our True Nature…

April 20, 2015

Steve Ross, (one of my favorite (far from average) yoga teachers, and a former Vedic Monk) says,” Life is a purposeless energy, going nowhere…it is a play…consciousness is doing its thing in all of these many forms in one intelligent, vast, indescribable reality. We are separate from our true nature because of our negative thoughts, presumptions, […]
