A couple weeks ago I wrote an email asking
you to pay extra attention to our innate
radar-net like tools we know as our senses:
Taste, touch, smell, sound and feeling.
Many of you tuned in and had some awesome
stories to share about awakening your senses – so cool!
Since that email, I have also honed in and
started to explore these portals a bit
deeper myself. To sense is to define the
edge of consciousness – to give dimension
to experience and bring understanding to
In short, I’ve been completely humbled by
the sheer magnitude our senses are capable
After dinner tonight, I took my dog for
a walk along a beautiful path near my house.
It was cold out, and despite my Norwegian blood,
I am a cold wimp, so I was bundled up head to toe.
Most of the leaves have either fallen or
are dried and ready to make the journey –
it was foggy and crisp. About 30 minutes
into the walk, I was hot, so I took off my hood,
then my hat(yes, I had both) and BAM!
Suddenly I was present.
I could hear my dog darting through the dry leaves,
feel the stillness of the fog, the squirrels
scavenging high above, the distant traffic….there I was.
My back straightened, my mind stopped thinking
and suddenly, it was all real. This struck a
sweet chord in me, I took in a big cool breath
and I smiled. Soooooo sweet.
In my recent quest to observe and appreciate
the senses, little moments like this have
presenting themselves more and more.
As a skier, you experience life on a completely
different plane than a lot of other people.
You know what the silent woods sound like when
it’s storming out. The smell of wax transports
you to the top of a freshly groomed slope.
Your heartbeat speeds when you watch the latest,
greatest ski movie.
And the best part of this all is, we still desire more.
We still seek experiences that will push the limits of our consciousness – of our understanding.
This is how we will continue to progress.
Please Join Us in Awakening Your Senses.
