Feeling Spaces

Sometimes when we are in the world we see things that are there yes but other times we cannot see no matter how good our vision is because we need to feel. Sometimes we can feel things that are there that cannot be seen. Today I'm going to talk to you a little bit about that.

You all know what it's like to get a bad feeling about something. Sometimes you think - it's a thought, something I was thinking about but other times you're quite well aware that it's the environment you're in or perhaps it is some danger in the area.

Feeling Spaces is about knowing where to go - when.

Here's some homework. I'd like you to find a place - anyplace - it can be out on the land, it can be in your own home, it can be anyplace you like. Keep your eyes open, it's not a close your eyes thing but feel the space in front of you. Don't if you would - reach out with your palm forward. Reach out with your left arm and the back of your hand forward and touch the space.

Now what are you doing. You're not actually making physical contact that you can feel - what you're doing is checking to see how you feel in your body.

If you feel calm and comfortable walk ahead but as you're walking you don't have to hold your arm out in front of you. Walk ahead a step or two, then stop, then feel the space in front of you. What you're doing is - your body is reacting to the energy in the space that is in front of you.

As I say you can practice this out on the land somewhere, you can practice it in your own apartment or house but when you do, turn in different directions and if at any moment you get an uncomfortable feeling in your body then withdraw your arm and retreat until you find a space you can walk towards that feels comfortable or neutral.

I'm just introducing you to this subject today because it builds on other work I have exposed you to. I'd like you to get used to doing this with your arm at first because after a while you won't have to put your arm out. There's another way and we'll talk about that next time.
