Sensitivity

Sensation as the Spiritual Gateway

I’ve been in conversation with friends around the subject of sensitivity & spirituality. 
Talk surrounding the intensity of the times.

There is so much contraction within political realms, mass corruption & violence...and at the same time magical movements of revolutionaries & healers standing up for the widespread injustice, inspiring and initiating new paradigms of living.

It’s a time of contrast - immense suffering & incredible liberation.

Our spiritual practices aim to bring more ease and lightness, but they require us to step up and do the work through the shadow.

Everything once covered up, rises to the surface. Slowly the veils of disillusion are stripped away.

The truth of reality bares itself and we’re presented with the choice to rewrite our story & realign.

But we can’t SEE unless we allow ourselves to FEEL. 
Staying present to the sensation of each felt experience is the gateway to mini awakenings upon reflection.

The alchemy occurs when we consciously channel the information presented & move in the way that is most healing for ourselves and those around us. 
Discernment & clear boundaries...receptivity & unconditional compassion are needed more than ever. 
We must stay rooted in our values & remain open to the perspective and choice of another, without judgement. 
Landing back into life in North America has brought much to the surface...a reminder that no matter how sweet or stormy the feelings/conversations are, there are no rights/wrongs. The highest practice is to stay awake to the sensations, to act from a place of truth and lean into the ride. 
Sensitivity is not only a practice, but a gift of our human experience - our souls are strong enough to handle the extremes and courageous enough to move with skill and grace. 
Yes, we are capable of change and are here in this exact moment for a reason. Throughout the swirl is a cleansing, which always leads to a rising. Collectively, we are in it, I see it and I feel it wholeheartedly.
