- 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.
