Vision Overload

  1. We’ve reached a place of vision overload in our culture. That means we are putting all our attention into what we see. Our listening skills are diminishing as we prefer texting short sentences to talking on the phone or even talking in person.

Hearing was the most prominent sense when the radio made it’s debut. Listening became very important because we couldn’t see who was speaking.We had to really focus our attention on listening to every word. We had to imagine what the speaker looked like. At that time the vision sense took a back seat to the auditory sense. Now it has reversed.

Our vision is more connected to our logical mind whereas our hearing is more connected to our creative mind. So the shift to our vision is creating more attachment to our logical mind.

Vision is enhanced by light. Our eyes crave light. Now we have very close intense light added to our vision commentary which tends to make it addictive.

The question which arose for me as I have been preparing to facilitate Owning Our Senses, An Experiential Journey … is which of our senses needs to be ready to take the lead?

We are entering a time where what we read can no longer be trusted. What we thought was truth too often is not.

I believe intuition is the next sense that will have to be owned, that trust in what we feel, see, hear, touch will have to come from within, from our intuition. That means trusting our own bodies, it means being more present with each moment. It means accepting an inmate intelligence within us and letting go of logical mind totally dominating our consciousness.

This had to happen to the characters in my novels, Awakening Earth Chronicles, in order to move out of the past into present time.

I and We Relationships

I woke up about 3am this morning in a lucid type of dream in which I was being shown, or taught, the difference between “I” and “We” relationships.

“I” relationships tend to be competitive, with. each person dedicated to their own journey.

“We” relationships are inclusive, both parties wanting the interaction of the other.

If an “I” person is in a relationship with a “We” person, the “We” person will expect a relationship, will feel responsible for all aspects because the “I” person sees it differently, they need more separation.

If I say I am a democrat, I separate myself from republicans. If I say I am an American I am more inclusive.

My journey in this dream was about my relationship with Earth/Gaia. How do I as a human let go of that “I” to become a “We” with Earth/Gaia? I saw an imprinted superiority of “I” as human (or maybe as a white person) that would have to be shed.

I have in the last couple years begun asking questions and listening to trees.  They tell me what they want to be called. It has been up to me to ask questions, but they do answer them. So far they have not asked me anything or I haven’t chosen to hear.

I’ve been noticing how much my little Chihuahua,  Sammy tries to converse with me but I speak English and he speaks dog. His tail is part of his communicating process. He gets so excited when I finally get what he’s been trying to tell me!

I walked Sammy, this morning and stopped to talk to a favorite tree, who wants to be called Rosa. I asked Rosa what it was like to have me ask questions and listen to her answers. She said it was the difference between being observed and being SEEN.

I sense my next step is being willing and open to be seen by Earth/Gaia. I can feel   “I”  needs to be let go of to experience a new “We”.
