Your Soul’s Sense of Touch: Are You Coming to Your Senses?
This is the final installment in our series of articles on your soul’s perspective of the five physical senses. We hope this series has stimulated your thoughts, and that you are now recognizing the sensations at your disposal for greater awareness and expansion.
This final article in this series will deal with touch. We feel that the sensation of touch is one of the most important senses that most human beings are overlooking and not taking advantage of in this realm.
The touch sense is merely recognizing whether you physically can or have to touch something in order to believe it is real, or whether you can feel the energy coming off of something and know it is there.
Here is a perfect example: you turn on a burner on an electric stove or hotplate, and without seeing the glowing red or orange light, you can feel the energy coming off of the burner and you recognize that it is hot. You can’t see it but you can FEEL it.
We know that some of you can sense the energy in a room or in your surroundings. This sensation is your Soul’s perspective of those energies. Blind people (who have decided to have that experience this time around) have become very in tune with the touch sensation. When people are missing a physical sense, what happens is that your soul’s senses start taking over or dominating your experience.
Most people don’t realize you have both a physical and an emotional experience at your disposal when you are having a human experience. When the physical sense dissipates, the soul’s perspective starts to take over. Think about the expression “to be in touch with yourself” or “to be in touch with your soul.” Where do you think these expressions come from?
And let’s not leave out the attraction sensation. There are laws that govern attraction, which you set up as a Light Being. These laws govern who and/or what you attract to yourself.
So, do you physically have to touch someone or something to actually feel it?
Can you touch someone’s essence so to speak?
Can you recognize energies that your soul is craving?
Everything that is drawn from an emotional experience is the sensory system in alignment with your soul.
What It Means to Know Something
This is what it is to know something. It is the emotional experience that is steadfast, that you cannot be talked out of. It doesn’t matter what sits before you in the form of “proof” or “facts” based upon the physical. You are having the experience of something and no one else can negate that experience; they are just not aware of it.
These experiences keep you searching, looking for an explanation. Light Beings, which we all are, have put these inner workings inside our embodiments to draw us away from the physical experience — to remind us of who we really are. Mostly the distraction of this realm keeps that hidden. So we say…
Go inward! Search inside for the answers that lie within; begin to recognize your soul’s perspective to the Senses. Stop ignoring the truth! That is what ignorance really is: merely you ignoring the truths that are out there.
More Profound Than the Physical
The truth is that all experience that is in alignment with your soul is far more profound, far more definitive, far more expandable than anything that happens to your physical embodiment. There is nothing in the physical that compares to the soul’s experience. Nothing physical is taken with you when you leave this experience. Nothing!
Think of an energy worker who doesn’t physically touch another embodiment (hands to body), but can scale that other body and pick up on injured places or chronic conditions. The awareness hits them so strongly that they have sensations that shake them to the core of their being. This goes far beyond the mere touching of skin, which at best just feels warm or cold. It is the vibration that hits them. It is such a deep sensation they could never deny the experience of having that sensation. It is an emotional experience, not physical.
That is the connection we are talking about, the deeper connection of energy which is your soul. Any time you attach an emotional experience to anything, you are bringing into your soul’s perspective rather than the physical aspect or perspective. That is utilizing everything that is available to yourself on this realm.
That is mastering this realm.
Your Thoughts Are Also Your Touch
The power of your thoughts can also stimulate a touch experience. How many of you have found yourself deep in a dream state, and simply through your dreams you find yourself “feeling” something in your dreams? Or with your fantasy mind you can create a physical reaction to the thought of being touched? These experiences are extremely intense through your emotions. They are, in fact, far more intense than when you are in your awakened state and are distracted by the illusion.
The illusion going on around you takes you away from the soul’s experience. When you are taken away from the illusion, your thought focus becomes internal rather than external.
There are humans who, through an unconscious desire to activate or come into alignment with their soul, will do things to their bodies that are extreme. They cause pain and suffering to themselves because it will stimulate an emotion. Usually because their emotions are dead! What are they doing? They are trying to align themselves with some soul that is inside of them because somewhere in the subconscious mind they know that the soul is emotion.
They cut themselves off from all other emotions because they haven’t been allowed to express them or experience them. The soul is crying out to them, trying to tell them that the healing truly lies within — in your emotional state. These people equate pain as the emotional state, as calmness — that being in or experiencing pain is the only way to experience one’s emotions. That is the confusion of the physical versus the emotional.
We hope we have stimulated you into recognizing or seeing things differently now. Remember, it is the emotional experience that changes you; you remember it because you felt it. Fleeting experiences are physical. They can easily go away and you don’t remember them. Emotional experiences are the ones you always remember. They change your life, and they change your existence.

Do You Have a Question for Channeled Light Being “Julius?”
Leave a comment below, and your question could be the next to be answered.
Well, it’s that time of year – the beginning of a new one – when it feels like changes for the better may actually be possible. When it seems like there may be something we can do differently, some way we can improve things a little. Perhaps it’s just a convenient time to make promises to ourselves – New Year’s Resolution time. It doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going to change anything, does it? But what if, with no huge effort on our part other than just a little shift in our point of view, we may dramatically change practically everything for the better? What if we could give ourselves a whole new orientation that would simplify and clarify our experience of life?
My best resolution may be to leave my body (again).
Most of our problems, most of the things we wish we could change for ourselves, are obstacles that we’re usually creating ourselves. We all know that already. Problems that pop up again and again and prevent us from reaching what we want or being what we’d like to be. But what might those obstacles look like if they weren’t right in front of us again, blocking our view and dictating our direction? What if we saw them from across the room? Or could look down on them, like a bird looking down from above? They probably would look like nothing much because, in truth, they usually are nothing but the constructions of our human minds.
Our human minds are very insistent mechanisms. They want us to believe everything they say is true. They want us to believe that we are our thoughts. But we’re not. We’re something else. Otherwise, how could we notice how crazy our thoughts can be? How could we say to ourselves I don’t even want to think about that and then not think about that?
You Are Not Your Thoughts
In Hinduism, there is a Sanskrit word sakshi which simply means the witness and it’s a simple idea. It’s an idea that you can assume as your own, because it’s about who you really are – apart from the demands of your rambling thoughts. Sakshi can suddenly shift your perception – your perspective – because it’s the witness that pays little or no mind to your mind. It applies no labels or judgments to what it observes. It’s the simple, pure awareness that looks upon all things with a graceful acceptance, with an objective compassion, as an intuitively analytical eye. Imagine being so cool! Now imagine it a little harder…
I had the mixed (but good) fortune of surviving multiple near-death experiences, and the first was in the classic out-of body motif. I looked down on the auto wreck and witnessed my own body, unconscious and apparently lifeless. Naturally, I suggest you avoid this scenario, but it was instructive. When I think about it now, I engage my memory, but I also engage my imagination – and you can do that, too.
Accessing the Sixth Sense
Imagine yourself outside of your body, being your pure self, unencumbered by the insistent designs and definitions of your mind. From there, you can look down on the limiting definitions your mind imposes on the huge potential of life; the power that’s so easily handed over to your old fears. From that point of view as the objective spiritual entity that you actually are, the world looks much simpler, much clearer. We experience what in Latin is called sub specie aeternitatis, the actual eternal nature of our pure self. The aspect of being that you may think of as an intuitive sixth sense and as a real, spiritual quality that we all as members of the human species possess.
When you identify yourself at that level, where your inner self and the rest of the universe are unified, the problems and obstacles of your life on Earth carry much less weight and power. For example, the guy at work who’s always in your face loses the label antagonist and is observed as simply demonstrating his need to express the demands of his own experience to anyone and everyone – not just to you. In fact, much less seems like it’s happening to you. It’s only happening for you, and because it must.
Becoming a Disembodied Spirit
With this simple change in perspective, you immediately gain a tolerant and empathetic consciousness, an acceptance of people as they are – and of the world – as it is. You are freed from personal expectations because you see them as simply part of the whole, as an inconsequential expression of the moment. This allows you to bring to each moment, and to the world, what you alone can bring to improve things as they are. You no longer have a horse in the race, because you’re watching the race from above with the objectivity of a disembodied spirit. Life becomes more easily acceptable. You can see the shape of every problem, so there’s no problem too large to be overcome.
This condition is a lot like Buddha Mind or Christ Consciousness – in which experiencing a little of either puts you in pretty good company and immediately bestows upon you a whole new definition of success.
A Tourist on Earth
You needn’t be concerned that you may become too detached from your own life or lose the passion you feel you need to inspire yourself. Your new point of view allows you to see your attachments and passions in a much truer context so you may engage them more accordingly. With the spiritual objectivity of sakshi, the size, shape and even origins of your personal obstacles become more apparent so you can see how they’ve fit into your past and how they can be dealt with more effectively as they pop up now. You engage your life as a whole – past, present and future to identify what works, what doesn’t and whom you would like to become.
Imagining that you’re up in the sky witnessing your body and mind (and everyone else’s) actually plants your feet more solidly on the ground. It empowers your actions, your effectiveness and your compassionate consciousness to show up for life with a simpler, clearer presence. Any responsibility can be met. Any obstacle can be dealt with – including those potential catastrophes that may lie just ahead of us all.
In Logion 42 of The (Gnostic) Gospel of Thomas, a rather Zen-like Jesus says, Be passersby, which could certainly stand in for the compassionate spiritual objectivity I’m suggesting – the slightly detached, fully engaged kind of tourist-on-Earth quality that can change our messy struggles into our empowering purpose.
For me, it may be summed up as a New Year’s resolution: I resolve to be a responsible, open-hearted, objective, compassionate witness of – and entirely engaged participant in – the remarkable, indescribable magic of life on this beautiful Earth.
