Everyone has heard about the five senses theory. We know that we have taste, hearing, sight, smell, and touch. That’s it! We take them for granted and do not pay much attention to them. They collect information from us not only about the outside world but also our inner world! This is how our perceptions, our attitude towards ourselves and everything else is shaped.
“The information we get through the senses is huge. We only register a negligible portion of it. The other, unregistered part, is stored in the subconscious, and we get to small pieces of it through our intuition. “
Being aware of what our senses capture can give us a better understanding of how our body functions. However, the signals that the senses send are almost completely ignored by modern man. On top of all of this, even before s/he feels anything through the senses, one is already conditioned by the culture, the norms of behavior, the notions of hierarchy and God … We react to the signals of the senses through our conditioning. It is worth looking into the situation, understanding these signals. Our body sends them in attempt to serve us as fully as possible.
The senses are actually practical tools given to us in this life. We can very successfully use them in everyday life. There are also many successful ways to clean and restart them. It turns out that the easiest way to calm the mind is to purify the senses. But not as in classical yoga, to limit them, but to tame them. Then the mind automatically calms down. At the same time, the cultural censor is easily transcended, thoughts stop. A spark of joy from life itself awakens. Sensory therapy is also very helpful in awakening our gifts and talents.
After working with people for over 10 years, I realized that words and even example do not affect human development and transformation that much. Life has shown me ways through the senses to non-violently affect the body and psyche without using words, but sounds, smells, colors, taste and touch! Without explaining very much, letting a person feel lighter, with clear consciousness, removing the unhealthy sounds from his physical and energy body, and filled with positive energy to inspire him to unleash, in touch with the mysterious inner strength of the sixth sense!
