Touch

Touch

Much has been said about the senses so far on your spiritual journey, but you may wonder what touch can do for you in the spiritual sense.  Again, thinking in a broader sense (pardon the pun) touch can be multi-faceted.

 When we put touch into context of spirituality, you can think about it as something physical or metaphorical. There are treatments that involve touch, feelings that evoke touch and many more. 

What does touch mean to you?  Some may find touch sensual, sexual, healing, awakening and a million other things.  Look around you.  What are you touching right now? 

We use the words ‘I am touched’ often to indicate that something has touched our heart.  How many times in your life have you folded your arms around your own chest, hugging in a safe touch to yourself?  Touch is powerful and within spirituality, essential.

When touched, held or worn, crystals can have a powerful impact on our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Healing practises in spirituality can involve non-invasive touch, which, trust me when I say if you are open to it, this is a very powerful way of feeling touch. 

 Touch is delicate and needs to be consensual which is so important.  Having a history of unkind touch can block your energy channels.  Alongside talking therapy, NLP is a good way of allowing safe touch to allow your body to heal the energy channels blocked.

If someone is touching you without your consent, we have some resources available to you to get help in the how section of our website. 

Touch can be experienced in so many ways. and in terms of your spirituality,  touch is something that we are aware of 24/7, be it in our conscious or sub-conscious mind. Think about returning home after a trip and getting into your bed, in clean pyjamas and sinking into the space that is a right fit to you, and think about how this makes you feel.  Safe, warm and in the right place for you.  This, my darlings, is the power of touch.

Smell

Smell

The senses are the things that enables us to capture the physical world around and whatever you are using. Aroma is a weird one because when you say the world smell, it doesn’t always have a positive connotation.  

There are a few ways in which we can use aromatherapy in spirituality.  Some of the most common are: 

  1. Frankincense to help enhance spiritual awareness and deepen your connection with a higher power.
  2. Sandalwood to promote a sense of inner peace and calm, making it a great choice for those looking to deepen their spiritual practice.
  3. Lavender, known for its calming and soothing properties.
  4. Patchouli to promote grounding and centring.  
  5. Cedarwood to promote a sense of strength and courage.  

When using aromatherapy oils for spiritual purposes, it’s important to approach the practice with intention and mindfulness. By using oils you can create a sense of calm, balance, and connection with the divine, and enhance your spiritual experience.

Supplement

Supplement

Thinking of the supplements that the body needs, we would consider that we take in the most from our diets.  However, here at The Spiritual Party we consider what the additional supplements are, not just to obtain the spiritual enlightenment that we are crave here but also to ensure that the surrounding mental diet is in the best shape it can be. 

This mental diet is about what you surround yourself with in life and can have an impact on how life is experienced by you. 

There are several supplements that are believed to help unblock chakras and promote overall balance and harmony in the body: 

  1. Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that is known for its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. It is believed to have a balancing effect on the root chakra, which is located at the base of the spine and is associated with feelings of safety, security, and stability. 
  2. Rhodiola: Rhodiola is another adaptogenic herb that is known for its ability to reduce stress and improve mental clarity. It is believed to have a balancing effect on the crown chakra, which is located at the top of the head and is associated with spiritual awareness and connection.
  3. Ginkgo biloba: Ginkgo biloba is a popular supplement that is known for its ability to improve circulation and support cognitive function. It is believed to have a balancing effect on the third eye chakra, which is located between the eyebrows and is associated with intuition and perception.
  4. Magnesium: Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for many bodily functions, including muscle and nerve function, and it is also believed to have a calming effect on the body. It is believed to have a balancing effect on the heart chakra, which is located in the centre of the chest and is associated with love and compassion.
  5. Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that are found in fish, nuts, and seeds. They are believed to have a calming effect on the body and can help to reduce inflammation. They are believed to have a balancing effect on the throat chakra, which is located in the neck and is associated with communication and self-expression.

It’s important to note that while supplements can be helpful in promoting overall health and well-being, they should not be used as a replacement for medical treatment. If you are experiencing physical or emotional symptoms that are causing you concern, it’s important to seek the advice of a healthcare professional. Additionally, it’s important to approach chakra healing with intention and mindfulness, and to incorporate a variety of practices, such as meditation, yoga, and energy healing, to promote overall balance and harmony in the body.

The temptation is to use the medical route to fix every problem we have.  However, it is worthwhile considering the supplements that enable our body to free flow in order to improve our mental diet, I.e., the consumables around us that can be influenced by more than just medicine.

For moderate to severe medical ailments, we would always advocate for speaking to a trained medical professional to get the proper diagnosis but have an openness to the alternatives that are available to you.  Sometimes all your mind, body and soul needs are a simple solution to prevent those chemicals that we have become all too reliant on in the modern world from impacting on the consumable self.  After all, if you look at the routes of ancient medicine, the alternatives have been around for thousands of years and sometimes you just have to give something a try.  Supplement the soul and we know that life can be a little more spiritual for it.

Taste

Taste

We have already introduced the concept of mental diet into your psyche.  Taste for me relates to the physical diet.

What consumables is it that surrounds you.  Diet is a word that used to fill me with dread.  Echoes of forbidden and the concept that food are wrong or right for you just stream in whenever I used today the word.  But, as I have aged, diet has become more synonymous with consumables and goes beyond food for me.  Consumables exist in many forms and whilst there are many, here we are talking about taste.  Taste can be experienced through many elements and here we want to discuss what taste actually is.

Taste is connected to the tongue, but also the brain, of which the heart is thought to be part of. 

Taste is a subjective thing therefore and is connected to major organs which, when you put it into the spiritual context, means that consumables are not just attributed to the actual taste but also how it makes us feel. 

So, what we want you to try and do is consider taste as an experiment and put it into the context of nourishment.  There are a few ways to experience and look after yourself with taste:

  1. Eat a balanced diet
  1. Limit processed foods and sugar
  1. Stay hydrated
  1. Consider supplements
  2. Practice mindful eating

Thinking about taste in the metaphorical sense now, how does your life taste to you?  I know with me, I have had periods of absolutely delicious life and periods of sour, sweet or savoury moments.

The senses are so closely linked, and taste is no different.  Think about when something leaves a taste in your mouth, which although it is not really a taste, but because the senses are linked, it can draw the memory of the taste into the tongue and convince the body that it is a consumable.  Powerful right?

Try and uncover the sweet senses that can be unlocked when you consider the tastes that go in.  Making time for this mindfulness when experiencing taste can unlock things about nourishment for the body that you have not considered before.  There is no diet preach here and no judgement because I believe firmly that there is a place for every taste but for now, I want you to think about taste in a wider sense and take the full glutenous glory of what taste does for your inner and outer self.  Go forth, eat, drink and experience, because, in my humble opinion we could all do with a little more chicken soup for the soul.

See

See

Sight in terms of spiritual awakening is a multi-faceted sense.  Sight in its simplest term refers to the things we can see around us, those mental diet consumables that have such an influence on our whole being.  But for the purposes of this article, we are talking about spiritual viewing first.  Here are a few of the sight based elements to spirituality:

  • Auras is a fascinating and intriguing practice that can help you to gain deeper insights into yourself and the people around you. An aura is a subtle, luminous energy field that surrounds all living things, and it is often associated with the spiritual or energetic aspect of a person.
  • Spiritual symbolism: Symbolism is a literary and artistic technique used to represent ideas, emotions, or concepts through the use of strokes, dashes or illustrations. Symbols are objects, images, or actions that carry a deeper meaning beyond their literal interpretation. They can be concrete and tangible, such as an object or an animal, or they can be abstract, such as a gesture or a colour.
  • Spiritual sight: Often referred to as clairvoyance or the ability to perceive beyond the physical senses, that is believed to be possessed by certain practitioners in different spiritual traditions.  Including Psychic, Mediums, Shamans, Seers, Oracles, Prophets, Yogis, Meditation Practitioners

The spiritual self is a complex and fluid process dependent on self, location, geography, etc. and the sight that is required as a sense can be physical or metaphorical.  Hard to get, right?  I struggle with this sometimes.  For me, quite simply, the sight sense in terms of spirituality I tend to use my physical sense to interpret, rightly or wrongly, and process what is in front of me. 

Sometimes having the spiritual lowdown on a topic can just create a bit more thought, which is after all what spirituality is about.  Opening up your mind to things that on the face of it, you might be able to see right now.  If you were approaching a glass of water from a distance, you might not be able to see the contents.  Is it empty or full?  For me is, it’s waiting for you to get closer to reveal the answer, much like your spiritual self.  You’re doing really well so far, my lovely.  Keep going and…

Hear

Hear

In these introductions we often talk about words that are simple in context. Hearing is one of those things. The senses are so important when it comes to finding your spiritual peace.  Hearing can represent the physical sense but can also represent the ability to absorb and understand what is needed to be absorbed for spiritual awakening.  Hearing is a sense that we often take for granted, but it is a fundamental part of our ability to connect with the world around us. In the context of spirituality, hearing can take on a deeper meaning, as it becomes a way of tuning in to our inner voice and the guidance of the divine.

In many spiritual traditions, hearing is associated with the concept of “listening to the still, small voice within.” This voice is often described as a quiet, intuitive sense that guides us towards our highest good. It can be heard through meditation, prayer, or simply by being present and attentive to our thoughts and feelings.

For many people, hearing within spirituality is a way of accessing wisdom and insight that is beyond the rational mind. It is a way of connecting with the divine and accessing a deeper sense of purpose and meaning in life. This type of hearing is often described as a form of intuition, a “knowing” that arises from a deeper level of awareness.

Hearing within spirituality can also involve a deeper sense of listening to others. It is a way of truly hearing what others are saying, beyond just the words they use. By listening deeply, we can connect with others on a heart-to-heart level, and gain a deeper understanding of their experiences and perspectives.

However, hearing within spirituality can also be challenging. It can require us to let go of our preconceptions and expectations, and to be open to new experiences and ways of thinking. It can also require us to be still and quiet, which can be difficult in a world that is often noisy and chaotic.

To cultivate hearing within spirituality, it can be helpful to incorporate practices that promote stillness and quiet. This can include meditation, mindfulness, or spending time in nature. It can also be helpful to connect with a spiritual community or teacher who can offer guidance and support along the way.

Ultimately, hearing within spirituality is about cultivating a deeper connection with ourselves, others, and the divine. By tuning in to our inner voice and listening deeply to others, we can access a deeper sense of wisdom and insight and create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

One of the things we will talk about later in your journey is the importance of that inner voice being kind. Kindness to yourself is almost as important as forgiveness.  As you start to think about the important things to you within your spiritual self you need to focus on that voice that I call your duvet voice, and by that, I mean the voice that talks to you when you pull the covers above your head at night and settle your mind down to rest.  Hearing is so multifaceted in this sense.  So, becoming more attuned to what you hear is such a significant part of your exploration from this point forward and all we can say is started to be more conscious of all these things you can hear, and it will aid you moving forward more than you could know. 

Mark Twain considers kindness to be a language that cuts across ability.  So, from a hearing sense, speaking the right internal language can enable you to be able to gift those spiritual juices a metaphorical stir.
