Blake said that the body was the Soul’s prison unless the 5 senses are fully developed and open.
He considered the 5 senses the ‘Windows of the Soul’.
When sex involves the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experience!
– Jim Morrison
The 5 senses are touch, taste, hear, smell and sight that is part of being human. Not everyone has all and some go deep into one such as a gourmet chef, artist, musician and so on.
I want to leave you with some things to consider about the 5 senses.
Touch – do we use our arms, legs, fingers, hands or bodies to truly touch – ourselves as in a hug or others (appropriately of course) but in hugs too or do we touch someone with our hearts ever?
Oh the Sounds to the Ears
Hear – do we take the time to listen instead of talk? Or spend some time in quiet and hear our own thoughts? Spend some time in nature away from noise pollution – when was the last time you really listen to birds chirping or even the stillness of the quiet?
Smell – how often do we really appreciate the smell of some amazing things – good foods, essential oils, nature, a smell of someone you love up close?
Do You Always See the Same Old?
Sight – how often do we take a few minutes to take a good look around at where we are or do you just see the same old? How often do we see something but only from our perspective and often times it’s a closed one? Real creativity, imagination and goals are first unseen.
Real Food is what the Body Needs too btw
Taste – how often do we take the time to rally taste our food instead of gulping it down or eating while in front of the tv, computer or phone or the same foods weekly? When was the last time you tried new foods? Real foods? Are you eating real foods or avoiding them due to much processed chemical concoctions labelled as food so you don’t like real food any more or can’t taste it?
Oooh, what about your 6th sense? Do you know about that one?
Sixth sense, is our ability to perceive the subtle-dimension or the unseen world of angels, ghosts, energies auras, etc. Clairvoyance, premonition, intuition are synonymous with sixth sense or subtle perception ability.
Your 6th sense should be your 1st sense!
ONEness IS the New Cool
We each have a 6th sense that is attuned to the ONEness dimension in life, providing a means for us to guide our lives in accord with our ideas.

Do you view things, people, situations from different perspectives or no?
Good and Bad are just different perspectives. The truth is nothing.
– Bhavesh Chhatbar
Remember, perspective can cause 2 people to look at the same thing and see 2 totally different things.
– Gail Lynne Goodwin
Sometimes the only reason for us to be somewhere else is to see things from a different perspective!
– Leila Summers
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.
Ana – One of the Yogi’s from Why We do Yoga book
I was in Yoga class yesterday with the awesome Ana from the Drishti Centre in Mexico and she used the analogy of comparing Photography with Yoga – interesting concept.
Lets take a different perspective even outside the class in every day life and situations.
If for example, on my camera I only use a 50mm lens – then I tend to miss out on much. I either need possibly a macro lens for close ups to really get a better picture of what I am seeing or a telephoto so I can get like a bird’s eye view of things and no so much detail.
Street in New Orleans
Purposely for a few years I went and got several Prime lenses – 35mm (wide angle) 50mm (every day) and an 85mm lens (good for portraits) – I still had my telephoto lenses but I focused on using these as if I wanted to really see or get a different photo aka perspective I had to move around – I had to be willing to be flexible and try and see things differently.
Close up – Different Perspective
Yes one can stand there with their zoom lens and zoom in and out but they don’t have to move their body so it’s not as effective as truly looking with your eyes and moving around to get different views.
Since travelling I use one lens – yet since using Primes a few years ago I move my body still to get different angels, different lighting and I have even laid down to get a shot or climbed a tree – I am willing to be flexible.
Close up Perspective
In Yoga classes – I can go to 4 classes of Ana’s a week and I never get the same class – sometimes Yin with Yang mixed in, sometimes Hatha, even Vinyasa – and it all helps me to be present in the moment, surrender and be open and they are always awesome classes – sometimes easy and other times kick ass!
Wider Perspective Can be Good
What is your perspective on things – could it be more open? Flexible? Not only in life yet also with Yoga – don’t come to conclusions or judgments – life flows better that way!!
Great article on Yoga and DNA which I am diving deeper into – boy have they kept much from us!!
Looking Through Different Lens (eyes) with Different Filters Can be Fun!!

No 2 Bodies are the Same – Love Yours No Matter What!!
Real Bodies are fat, and thin, and both and neither and otherwise.
– Hane Blank
There is no wrong way to have a body!
– Glenn Maria
You were born to be real not perfect!
Cuz You’re amazing just the way you are!!
The problem isn’t with your body – it’s what you think of it and what you think of yourself – true self love is thinking love, feeling love, being love and eating love………not fear, judgment, hatred, criticism, jealousy, processed food (and emotions) or abuse of any kind.
NO two bodies are the same!!
Choose Body Love!
This is a body hate free zone – remember – there is no perfect body only marketing and advertising that reminds you that you’re not good enough and then the self programming loop you keep running in your mind. It’s time to tell it to f*&^ off – we have approximately 75 000 thoughts a day – most of which were the same that you thought yesterday, last week and probably last year.
It’s a program – delete it and reinstall one of self love and body love!!
The body is the only place your Soul has to live – so take care of it. Raw, Naked and Beautiful – Real, Authentic and Truth.
Never Give up on Your Dreams
Remember – there is nothing wrong with your body but there is a lot wrong with the messages that try and convince you otherwise.
If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either.
– Mandy Hale
Talk to yourself like you would talk to someone you love.
Self love is the greatest middle finger of all time! 🙂
Perhaps we should love ourselves so fiercely that when others see us they will know how it’s done!!
Let go of the bonds of Old Programming that is NOT About Self Love!!
Self love is not about being better than anyone else, comparing, judging, criticizing you or others.
Self Love is about knowing you, your value, that you do matter, and that you ARE perfect being you!!
So then the question IS – Are you truly being YOU?
The more you Love Yourself – the less BS you will tolerate.
PS I am not beautiful like YOU – I am beautiful like me!!
Want to know who you are at a deeper level so you can step into the Truth of YOU?
Young children are ALL about Love….until……..

Uranta – Different backs on many tops
Uranta is beautiful clothing – made out of natural fibres, comfortable, beautifully designed with amazing owners. Since finding Uranta I practically live in the clothes!!
The prices are awesome BUT the best part is this co helps employ single moms and people in the community – which desperately needs it. Also, as I mentioned in an earlier post Uranta started the drumming project for Gr’s 1 – 8 at one school and are hoping to branch out to several more schools – so 7% of every sale goes to this project – BIG Win Win!!
I am so usd to being on the other side of the camera lol

If you are very happy – know that you are close to your Self, if you are sad and stressed know that you are close to your Ego.
The Ego is a veil between Humans and God.
Dreams…..are invariably seeking to express something that the Ego does not know and does not understand.
– Carl Jung
Dreams are illustrations from the book your Soul is writing about you.
Are you paying attention?
When we are paying attention it comes from the heart which is how our Soul talks with us – (one way but a big way) not the mind which is how our Ego talks to us.
We are all born like snowflakes – uniquely beautiful and with our gifts – don’t be afraid to stand out!
Connect with Your Soul and let your Light shine!

Our reality is nothing but an illusion. Talk about a mind f*@&……….but it’s true. Nassim Haramein has proven that our so called ‘reality’ is nothing but a feed back loop for our thoughts – in other words our reality is an illusion based on our thoughts, beliefs, patterns and feelings. In other words it reflects back to us what is truly inside of us – as above so below, as within so without.
Makes you want to rise up doesn’t it – what we are thinking and feeling and any patterns / habits we have going on in our life. Do they support us or not?
WhatEver you have going on in your world you are creating it.
Yup – makes one take responsibility FOR EVERYTHING.
Something our society isn’t good at doing.
Again – our reality is an illusion.
The illusion is not the problem.
It only becomes the problem when we think that this is the only reality.
We Cannot Solve our Problems with the Same Thinking that Created Them!
A great quote from Abraham Hicks is – ‘Nothing is real unless you give it your attention’.
Energy flows where attention flows – where are you focusing your energy?
It’s useful to experience certain things.
There is a great reality beyond this reality – wouldn’t it be cool if we could remember that?
Open the Doors to Your Imagination – it Opens You up to Other Possibilities!!
The more we connect with our Soul – we can remember it’s true.
So the more you create your reality to how you would like it to be, no not according to what you think you should because you saw it a Facebook ad or because the sheeple say it or one of the social media sites or a tv ‘reality’ show – it’s what you truly desire that from your heart!!
Without you being you the Universe is incomplete……..especially yours!!
Know who you are at a Soul level!!

Don’t you know yet? It’s your light that lights the world!!
Don’t let negativity and darkness dissolve your light!
Each time your embrace the truth of who you are, you bring a little more light into the world!
The Soul has no secret that the behaviour does not reveal.
– Lao Tzu
Things that Keep us Locked Up
IN this game called life we have been fed many lies, for instance that our genes play a role in disease, weight etc but in fact they only play 1% of that role – the rest is environment. In other words our genes adapt. They are liquid crystals – anyone who loves crystals knows the properties of them – so in our bodies our genes our liquid crystals – totally programmable – so what are you programming them with?? They also affect our DNA – can’t wait to share more on that – mind blowing but fun!
Chemicals from foods and vaccines? Negative or low vibing emotions like stress, dread, judgments (of self and others) or fear etc, drugs,tv and news, little to no body movement, little to no connection with nature or sunshine…………I could go on
Do Yoga or some kind of Body Movement – Photo Credit Sandra Wagman
Eating real foods – that aren’t processed or full of chemicals, use more natural forms of healing like homeopathy, herbs, essential oils etc, live in emotions of much Gratitude, Love, Joy and Bliss as you are truly on your path and connected with your Soul and Source, walk, do Yoga or hike, bike etc, spend time in nature either walking, hiking or growing a garden as some examples and walk barefoot in nature – one of the best ways to ground ourselves – at least an hour – my excuse for walking the beach when I am near one!! 🙂
When we go back to the basics in all areas of our lives and spend some time breathing, quieting the mind or meditating (so little to no tv) laughing lots, hugging loved ones and having such an attitude of Gratitude for all in your life – we actually do bring in more light – it’s the truth of who we are.
We did not come down here to get hard lessons – we came down here to each remember who we are and to truly step into our own divinity and creatively express who we truly be at a Soul level – and play like it was recess most of the time……..seriously…….who wrote the rules telling us it had to be hard, stressed, enslaved, full of chemicals so that when you could retire then you could have fun???
You Aren’t Here to BE Like Everyone Else
Honour Life and it will honour you with more life – that is keeping things real – food, thoughts (anything not coming from Love is a BFFL) emotions (same as thoughts) and living your truth – that is how you can shine more light into the world.
Your Heart and Soul are the truth – are you able to hear them? Are you ready to step into the Light – your Light?
BE YOU – No Matter How it Looks to Others!!
If you are stressed, lost, confused, angry, not feeling well or healthy, or doing what you need to to pay the bills ( trust me I know all of these) then you have lost the connection………it’s never too late or too hard to re-connect!!
YOU deserve it – after all it is YOUR life!!
Much Love and Gratitde
Great place to start is 21 Days Food and You – this is a great start for anyone to start uncovering what has been covering up their light!!
