Sensitivity And Knowing, Part 2

Now - last time I began telling you about how sensitive we are and today I want to expand on the practicality of that. It is a great deal more practical then you have been led to believe.

Sensitivity has been greatly reduced in the eyes of many societies and yet it is that very quality that will not only allow us to move with grace through the coming years but will allow us to experience a much better quality of life.

Now, last time I touched on the fact that it is our sensitivity that will allow us to know beforehand what may happen. I've spoken at great length here on these blogs about instinct though I don't always use the word to speak about it.

Sometimes the training occurs in the various aspects of feeling this or feeling that and as you know when I've labeled things feelings, since labeling has been possible here on Blogger, I have always referred to feelings in the context of physical feelings. When I do that you can be sure I'm talking about instinct.

Instinct is a capacity we are all born with on Earth and we identify it most often with animals. They do this, they do that - oh it must be their instinct - and how often have we wished that we had that...and of course we are born with it. We're born with it because Creator wants us to have it and quite obviously since we are born with it - wants us to use it.

It is true that sometimes we are born with other qualities but these qualities are also intended by Creator for us to use them in ways that are benevolent for ourselves and others. I'll say more about that some other time but for now lets talk a little more about sensitivity and instinct.

It is possible you know, to know what's going to happen before it happens. I've given you exercises before on how to feel something - how to know that something is close.

The exercise given last time was a reminder and if you like you can do that another time with yourself but it might be better to have a mate or friend do that with you. It has to be a very good friend, someone you absolutely trust because it is no fooling around - it has to be done the way I recommended because the point is to remind you that you are sensitive - not to make a joke of your sensitivity you see.

So if you like you can do it a second time with your eyes closed but the person doing the almost touching of course has their eyes open and must be very careful to do the exercise as suggested.

The experience then of sensitivity has everything to do with instinct. Wouldn't it be wonderful to know what was going to happen before it happened.

Well of course your feelings are the messenger when it comes to instinct. How many of us truly honor our feelings? I'm not talking about feelings that are necessarily stimulated by fear or terrors, though sometimes when those feelings come up and are recognized it's because we haven't noticed our warning feelings about something that could happen. I am talking about those gentle subtle feelings that are messages. So, another little bit of homework.

I know I've given homework like this before but this is an important refresher. I will be giving you much more advanced work on instincts in the near future.

So, this is what I'd like you to do as a refresher. Find a place in your house or in a location where you can be completely safe and stand in front of a wall with absolutely nothing in front of you. This can't be a crowded room with lots of furniture or certainly not with dogs or cats or children running about - so it has to be someplace that will work for you.

It's not necessarily something I'd recommend doing outdoors - alright - though some of you may have ideal circumstances for that - I'd recommend it be in a room.

Stand about 6, 8, maybe 10 feet away from a blank wall and with your eyes wide open very slowly with the smallest steps possible walk towards the wall. Don't put your arms out. Just walk towards the wall - and you don't have to keep your arms at your side, just walk naturally but don't put your arms out in front of you.

When you get to just a few feet from the wall then you can put your arms out with your palms down and your hands curled slightly so that by the time you get to the point where you're actually going to contact the wall with your body you touch it with your slightly curled fingers. Then turn around and walk back naturally so that you are about the same distance from the wall which would be about 6, 8, 10 feet away - whatever you choose, something like that.

Then do the same thing again very slowly with your eyes closed. Try to make sure to do this in a way where you are safe - nobody running around or if there's another person in the room that they're reasonably far away and perhaps only there to keep people who may be in the area from barging in and disturbing you.

So, take note of when you get the feeling to put your hands out the way you did when you got closer to the wall and put your hands out. If you notice the wall, then that's fine - then open your eyes.

If on the other hand you get to the point where you bump into the wall before you put your hands out that's okay too but that's why I want you to walk very slowly - just inching along so you don't harm yourself. You don't have to inch along when you're doing that part of the exercise where your eyes are intended to be open though I do wish you to do it very slowly for that part with your eyes open but do inch along when you get the feeling you ought to or when you have the sense the wall is coming.

Now anytime you get to the point where you reach out with your hands and contact the wall or even reach out with your hands and do not feel the wall because you're not that close to it yet, it's alright to open your eyes then and look and see where you are.

The point of this exercise is to get to the point where you are able to reach out and contact the wall with your eyes closed when you are about - maybe half an arm length away from the wall.

It's not a game. It's a means to sharpen up your instincts and as I said in the not to distant future I will be giving you something that is a greater test of this and will involve some slight risk perhaps but not a danger - maybe a little risk of embarrassment but for now this is what to do as a refresher.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
