We are all well aware of the five physical senses. We learn early in life through our own experience and it is reinforced through education that our senses are touch, sight, smell, taste, and hearing. Many of us have even experienced a sense beyond these five physical senses. People often refer to it as “having a feeling” about a person, place, or situation. It can be referred to as intuition or a “gut feeling”. We can even contemplate that there is another sense beyond our intuition.
We know that our physical senses can be wonderful tools to help us relate to our environment and everything in it. We can detect with our senses and interpret that information to come to conclusions. Most of us can remember a time when one of our senses recreated a memory. Perhaps it was the color of a flower that took us back, a smell of cookies baking in the oven, the soft touch of fabric, the sound of a beat in the music, or the taste of a combination of spices or herbs. An amazing thing happens when that trigger is recognized by our subconscious. It quickly brings our conscious to a “time and place” we have experienced before. It can be quite powerful.
There are plenty accounts of people that are either born without one of their senses or lose it during their lifetime that allows other senses to “fill in” for that lost sense. Blind people may rely more on their hearing or sense of touch to help them picture the world around them. A deaf person may rely on their sight for something as simple as lip reading. A person that has lost their sense of hearing may learn to use a sense of vibration to interpret their environment.
Our world is entirely made up of vibrations. Everything has its own vibration. When we understand this, then we can begin to understand the intuition sense and how we can become more aware of it. Think about a time that you met someone for the first time and you got a feeling about them. Perhaps you felt this person was good or maybe even a bad person. This feeling was not based off of how they looked, smelled, sounded, felt to the physical touch, or tasted (that would be peculiar upon first meeting). This feeling was your intuition sensing something beyond your five physical senses. You picked up on their energy… their vibration.
We all have the ability to tap into our intuition. Some would argue that point, but the possibility is there. Some people are encouraged from a young age to listen to their intuition. Some are told it is silly and their intuition is disregarded quickly. If you are reading this, then perhaps you are well aware of your intuition. Perhaps you are just interested in the concept. What can we do to increase our connection to our intuition?
There is not a step process, in my opinion. Let us look at this from the idea of honing your physical senses. When we utilize certain physical senses and pay close attention to these senses, we are able to fine tune our senses and utilize them in our daily lives. Think of a chef who has the ability to tell you every herb and spice in a dish he tastes for the first time. He has through years of experience been able to train his palate to identify these different things. A chef will nibble on an herb, dab a spice on his tongue, taste a small piece of cheese, and so on. The chef is then able to recognize these tastes separately and begin to identify wonderful combinations to create an experience for his diners. The same could be said for a musician. They are always listening and identifying sound waves. A musician is often able to hear the different sounds separately, but also create a combination of sounds or a series of sounds that is pleasing to the listener.
One thing to keep in mind is a chef that smokes may not have the best of taste due to damage to his taste buds. A musician that damages his hearing may not be able to pick up all the frequencies anymore. Cleansing yourself of damaging behaviors and thoughts is vital to begin utilizing your senses to their greatest ability.
If we have the ability to utilize our senses in such great detail to create such amazing “masterpieces”, then what happens when we consciously utilize all our senses on a regular basis?
Try sitting in nature and utilizing all your senses to connect with your environment. For some, this comes naturally and for others, this can be very difficult due to not utilizing all our senses at one time on a regular basis. As you sit there in this space, begin to identify what you see, smell, taste, hear, and feel based upon touch. Pick out as many details as you can. If you are sitting on a rock, is it cold or warm? How does sitting on this surface affect your body? Do you feel pressure on your tailbone? How your legs are positioned and how does that feel? What do you see? From the minute to the big picture – vary your focus from micro to macro. What do you smell? Can you separate the combination to smell specific flowers, the dirt, people, or even animals? What do you hear? People talking in the distance and how do they sound? Can you hear the birds chirping or the bee buzzing by? Do you taste the fresh air as you breathe it in?
The more you practice being aware of your five physical senses, then the more natural this becomes. Once we are proficient at utilizing these senses, then we are able to notice when we are sensing something else. We don’t have to question ourselves when our intuition makes us feel a certain way. We can identify that feeling and begin interpreting that feeling. A good practice could be to write down certain feelings you get about situations, people, places, or things. Make note of what you physical senses picked up on and write as many details about how your intuition made you feel. The more we do this, we are able to go back and review and see if our intuition was trying to tell us something. The process of fine tuning our intuition naturally takes form the more we utilize it and know it is something real versus a coincidence or just a feeling of no importance.
Once we become comfortable with the feeling of our intuition, then we can begin to interpret those feelings. What were we feeling? Why? What is our intuition telling us? This is why keeping record can be so important. You don’t second guess yourself as it is right there for you to review. You can begin to interpret the energies around you. You can even pick up on when someone/thing else is attempting to manipulate you.
When you are with a group of people, and one person gets an idea to do something and begins getting really excited about that idea, then it can spread to others. Say, someone has an idea to do something negative. Most of the people in the group may shun the idea at first. Then as the person with the idea gets more and more excited about it and keeps projecting their energy, you may begin to see others begin to “change their mind”. It is the same concept as peer pressure. The more aware you are of this, then the easier it will be to identify that energy and act accordingly. The same can be said for the herd mentality. When an idea is projected enough with enough energy, people will go along with it. The more people that join the idea and spread it, the more power it has to alter others. The ability to identify this is “priceless”.
Just as you are able to receive and interpret using your intuition, you are able to project on to others. The best example is when you cross paths with a total stranger that feels very unhappy. You may “send them love” and you can sense a lift of their negative emotions. Sometimes, you may even see a bit of a smile appear on their lips. This ability should be utilized responsibly with love being the only driving factor.
Being tuned into our intuition is a wonderful ability. Everyone has the ability, but some may have more work to do before really beginning to feel it and decipher it. We, as a collective and individually, are healing with the help of so much. We are trying to get back to our more natural way of being. Trusting your intuition, being able to interpret your intuition is very valuable in so many areas of our experience. We need it more now than ever with everything going on. The choice is yours to use this amazing sense, and only you can do the work to understand it.
