I’m sharing a link to a thoughtful, insightful 1-hour documentary about the 20% of the population (and not only human population, but animals as well) possessing traits of high sensitivity.
Highly sensitive does not mean shy, introverted, fearful, depressed, or even snobbish, as sensitives are often perceived – although, how their family and the world responds to them can seed wounded emotions that could haunt them for life.
Highly sensitive people likely inherit this inclination via their DNA… which seems to set up stronger perception and deeper processing of events than the majority. The film explains that the HS tendency has recently been traced to a particular area of the brain.
Illuminating… and in a sense, kind of like watching a bio-pic of my life. Maybe yours too – or your friend’s, or your brother’s, or your child’s, or your pet’s! Continue reading
Twenty years ago I explored the revelatory “Tellington T Touch” method for assisting unwell or troubled animals. To my delight, all these years later, the creator of this method – Linda Tellington-Jones, now a wise elder – talks with Thinking Allowed‘s Jeffrey Mishlove about her wonderful work. This awareness can help with virtually any situation, including your own. It’s a balanced blend of intuitive and physical skill.
Practicing presence in virtually any situation transmits a profound gift. Being present for this conversation is a gift I invite you to experience. It’s one benevolent thing that can ripple into everything. Love all… W Continue reading
Toko-pa came to my awareness two or three years back. I consider her someone good to know (or know about), and I’ve mentioned her on the blog before.
She has a new book out: Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home.
Seems the perfect time of year to look into this theme – maybe as a gift, maybe for your personal support – as this time of year can heighten an aching sense of not belonging.
In this brief video, she shares that her inquiry into this topic was the result of a long, debilitating illness that left her feeling not connected.
Speaking for myself, a long period of awakened kundalini brought with it a sense of disenfranchisement as well. Particularly from my 3D self. Continue reading
When A Child Appears
by Matt Licata
If a child were to appear at your door – cold, scared, and tired from a long journey…
If he or she were anxious, heartbroken, raging, and confused…
Would you refuse entry to the little one? Would you first demand that his fear dissolve, her anxiety be healed, his confusion clarify, or her heart be mended?
In your most authoritative spiritual voice, would you urge the little one to first “get over it,” to accept everything the way it is, to urgently forgive those who have harmed him, to fall into the bliss of the moment, or to drop into the state of no-self?
Or would you provide sanctuary and safe passage from a long journey? A warm home in which the stories, the emotions, and the sensations of the little one can unfold, be illuminated, and be metabolized into the tender space of wholeness? Continue reading
This one is somewhat off topic for this blog space, which points up one reason why I really need to expand into a magazine/ multimedia format that would accommodate a much broader bandwidth of fabulous content. :)
Meanwhile, it’s my bloggy and I’ll post what I want to. ‘–)
This woman turned up in the sidebar of another video I was checking out. Not familiar with her; a quick glance around her channel suggests I’ll likely not pursue more of her offerings.
She boldly came out and talked rather transparently about her personal grapplings with aging, which happened to be somewhat “up” for me as well as I sort of hobbled through this past week, so for this she has my respect. Continue reading
The player can be virtually transported into any form of life and “carry on” in the virtual context of that life, which could be a seed, a blade or leaf, an insect or animal, you just hop into that “form” and carry on with whatever comes your way in that embodiment.
I find this video game idea fascinating and refreshing! I’d love to experience Everything – which is the name of this unusual game.
From what I gather, this is not a game that involves competition or killing the other players. It seems to be a chance to “become” almost anything you can think of, and see how you deal with the new environment you’ll be navigating as that other living form. So – walking in the Other’s shoes, you might say. It might be a fabulous learning tool for understanding compassion, empathy… who knows how far down a rabbit hole this virtual environment can go?
The Everything gameplay youtube offers a good glimpse into the game’s virtual world – find that below.
