How Your Soul Experiences the Five Senses — An Introduction

Do you really know how your sensory system works?

As a small child, you likely learned in school all about your five senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. Science has done a good job of providing us with extensive information about the physical aspect of these five primary senses.

Each of your physical senses gives you a different perspective on an experience. Think, for example, of the ocean and how you could experience the ocean through each one of your senses (seeing the ocean, hearing the ocean, tasting the ocean, etc). Combined, your five senses give you the totality for your human physical experience of the ocean.

But did you know that there is a spiritual aspect to each of your senses, a soul perspective of each sense? Julius (a group of high light energy entities) recently shared with me about the soul’s connection to the senses.

The Soul’s Connection to Intuition

Think about the gift of insight or psychic ability or intuitiveness. Many humans have come to refer to this as Sixth Sense or the Third Eye. Julius explains that this Sixth Sense is really a soul connection to the eyes; or more specifically, the soul’s connection to the sense of sight.

Keep in mind that the physical is an illusion. Your physical body, along with everything else in the physical such as your car, house, money, etc., can go away. And that is the definition of an illusion — anything that can go away!

Ten Senses for the Human Experience

You could really say that there are 10 senses to be used in the human experience: five in the physical and five in the spiritual. Understanding your complete sensory system brings you to the awakened state that your senses were developed by you, for you, to aid you into the alignment of who you actually are — a physical AND a Spiritual being.

You have a duality going on. You are both a physical being and a Light Being, and your sensory system is expandable into each of these areas. Your spiritual perception, your spiritual growth and expansion, and your ascension process are all part of your spiritual experience. By becoming aware of and recognizing ALL of your senses, you can utilize and expand both your physical and spiritual experiences, which creates your total experience on this physical plane of existence.

Practicing the art of the sensory system that you have set up can aid you in the progression towards consciousness (also known as a higher consciousness state, or aligning yourself with your soul, or getting to know the totality of yourself). This not only helps you become more aware of your physical state here on this physical plane of existence but will accelerate your progression toward enlightenment.

The Expansion of the Senses

When you are missing something in your life do you have a heightened awareness that you are missing that thing? That something doesn’t feel, right? Are your senses taking over during that experience? Are you even aware that your body has been equipped with that state of awareness?

What about those humans that have been labeled as handicapped because they are missing something in their physical state (vision, hearing, etc.)? Do they achieve a heightened state of awareness in their experience? Which system is beginning to dominate their experience?

One could argue that if one system begins to fail then the others will start to take over. These types of experiences are well-documented, but with no real explanation for how these other senses expand. What is ironic is that these types of human beings are usually more grounded with themselves; they have become more heightened in their awareness. They have a farther-reaching parameter to their state of being this time around than those who have all of their physical senses intact but have become limited in their experience.

Emotional vs Physical

So to simplify things, we are showing you the emotional versus the physical. Just like it is with everything in this realm — you have a physical embodiment and you have a Soul. And your Soul is emotion. When you have a sensation that occurs based purely upon an emotional standpoint, you are experiencing your soul’s sensations.

If you are only relying upon the physical for your proof (i.e., you must be able to touch it, taste it, see it smell it, or hear it), then you are living an extremely limited existence.

You have an extremely limited perspective, and it is that limited perspective that keeps you returning to the physical. You keep reincarnating in an effort to master all the components of the physical — which includes the soul’s spiritual aspect of this plane.

 



Times of Social Unrest Appear to Boost Our Brain's Neuroplasticity

Social Unrest Boosts Neuroplasticity

New research suggests that times of global unrest present a unique opportunity for neurological growth and profound behavior change, but only when leveraged correctly.

Kayla Osterhoff is a neuropsychophysiologist who studies the interaction of the mind and brain, which she calls the ‘human operating system.’

“One of the greatest mysteries in modern neuroscience is actually how the brain produces the mind. The reason why we have not been able to come up with the answer for this is because that’s not how it works. These two are actually separate systems that interact together to produce what I call the ‘human operating system,’ which is responsible for our version of reality as humans,” Osterhoff said.

Osterhoff has recently been researching the hypothesis that times of social unrest provide a valuable opportunity to neurologically upgrade this human operating system.

“Right now, we have this very unique opportunity to upgrade our ‘human operating system’ globally,” Osterhoff said. “And that is because as a society around the entire world we are experiencing this social unrest and this has caused a couple of significant cognitive and neurological shifts that have provided an opportunity for us to grow and evolve as a society.”

Osterhoff points to several fascinating factors that contribute to this phenomenon.

“So, studies are showing that acute states of stress, like shock, trauma, or something surprising like what we’re currently experiencing in our world, caused this cognitive psychological shift that actually makes our subconscious mind more suggestible, meaning that our subconscious mind is brought forward so to speak, and it’s more malleable, it’s more programmable,” Osterhoff said.
