Oh the summer is full of aliveness! It is the most sensual season for all the world is alive and playing! The outdoors growing and lush with color and scent. The weather inviting us to be outside hiking or beach hanging. We have parties and celebrations galore to participate in where we see old and new friends and vibe with community. The activities for adventure endless with nice weather. Vacation months in the northeast, where all take time to just enjoy play.
I have so engaged in the sensuality of this season! I invite you to make these two months a practice in being and presence. I encourage you to really play with your senses and this body being you have. We can tune out of our mind during this season more easily and just ride the pleasure and delights that our body is experiencing all the time. We rarely focus on these senses as important versus our mind. Yet when we are in this playful season, we let go of our thinking and really partake in life more fully. We can do this any day or season. It is natural in the summer so notice, observe and amp it up!
We get so lost in thinking and forget all the joy and pleasure around us at a moments notice. We forget we have 6 senses and rarely do we revel in them fully. This is such a waste of the joy of being in a body. We can find delight, pleasure, high states of being by participating in the moment more fully when we actually notice and experience the stimulation our body recieves every moment. We can redirect our mind, clear patterned thinking and refocus ourselves in the moment through our physical senses, our movement to have a life of more clarity. Well being is easier when we use all our being. Health and relaxation are natural outcrops of using all our senses and participating in life more fully.
The mind is a powerful tool but it is only one. We have emotions, we have our senses and these are more connected to our sacred body. It is called embodiment for it is purposeful to support us in moving in vitality, in joy, in peace and relaxation. These are the healing vibrations that balance the stress and challenge of life. Using this sensual time to really connect and ground into our body so all of the tools of awareness are used is a way to experience more happiness and presence. We can't run around always with our mind on this, our emotions here and our body trying to follow it all. It is bad use of the sacred vessel that is here to support us in reading our environment. It supports us to health as well when we sharpen all our senses which only add to a greater experience every day.
So as you play this season, I inspire you to really savor and observe everything with all your senses. Play with this presence and develop your sensual nature. We are energy and the senses are the tools to feel and experience the energy. Stop and notice the smells, the sights, the sounds, the feelings of goodness and joy as you have fun. Really observe this vibration and how you feel in your body being. You can create reference points and practices that you can use any day, any time of the year to find more joy energy.
Sharpen those skills of sensuality. The world becomes richer and richer as you develop your sensory nature. All the daily tasks become refined. Tantra is all about this nature to really use our skin, our eyes, ears, nose and touch to electrify the body. We have so many sensors and we can develop them to feel more subtly and fully. Summer makes this so easy. Awareness makes it a playful way to enjoy our body as we enjoy the world and fun! And each moment becomes more delicious, pleasurable and filled with magic!!
