Feeling is nature to our being.
Feelings are the way the body perceive energy. There must be some
flow of energy for us to feel. What we feel gives rise to the
thoughts we have. Each thought we have arises from some flow of
If we are open to feeling, we can begin to see we can feel or sense
the energy within a thought. Some thoughts feel good. Some feel
unpleasant. Others seem to have little to no feeling or, rather,
give us no feeling. But that does not mean the energy is not there
to sense. Rather, we are just are not aware of the feeling or we
have no particular interest in that feeling to focus on it.
We are inundated with flows of energy and feelings every moment. We
tune out much of what we sense because the background levels of
energy would overwhelm us if we were open to sensing all of what we
are capable of sensing. We raise the threshold of what we feel so
that we are not overwhelmed. It is quite nature to do so.
However, sometimes we raise the threshold too high or are too
selective of what we feel. As we grow up in life we have experiences
that are painful and/or unpleasant. Some are more so than others. We
develop response patterns to life to prevent experiencing the
unpleasant in the future. We learn to look for that which is
To know what
serves us, to use our
internal compass and/or to use our
intuitive guidance we must be open to feeling. Many of us will
have to open ourselves to feeling and give ourselves permission to
feel. In doing so, we may find there are memories of the past which
pain that we must process before we can be open to feelings. Or,
there are response patterns to life that we have been using to
either numb the pain or suppress it. We may even have developed
addictive patterns in order to not feel. We also may have to change
some of our thinking and what we believe about feeling for we may
find we can begin to feel and sense things we never thought
possible. When we open ourselves to what we feel and process the
pain that may be stored in past memories we can find an improvement
in our intuitive guidance and our own creativity and creative power.
creative power/Creative Power lies in feeling and what we feel.
We have to feel in order to be catalyzed to create. It is our
passion and the flow of energy we feel is what allows us to take
action in life. Without feeling there is no motivation to create. As
we open ourselves to feeling, we will find our creative
power/Creative Power also increases. We will find an awareness and
an ability to know certain things that was not previously available.
Yet it was always there, we just had to open ourselves to what we
The quickest way to open oneself to feeling at each and every level
of our being is to use the body. The
body in many ways is like an antenna. It senses and feels
energy. Allowing the body to feel and/or putting the body in
environments where it can be open to feeling different sensation
more as a
ritual with the intent to open our feeling more that what is
felt is probably the safest starting point. As we being to feel and
open ourselves to feeling with little sensing rituals, we will find
intuitive guidance is more than capable of showing us the path
where to go next. We only need to learn to honor the intuitive
guidance we get become very clear as to what we desire to create in
or with our life.
It needs to be noted here that as we open ourselves to feeling, we
will be naturally lead to move toward either the intention for our
life or any overwhelming desire we may have about what we desire to
experience in life. In seeing what feeling arise and where they
being to push us in life it may become necessary to explore our
subconscious intentions. We may find we need to make our
subconscious conscious to see what is really pushing us and
catalyzing our life. We also may find we become very aware that the
life we are living is not a life that
serves us or is
a life worth living. We may find we are lead to change our life.
What arises as we open ourselves to feelings will be unique to each
of us. Some of what we open may be painful. The
Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines have been created to assist
individuals in the creative process for whatever they desire to
create. As one opens themselves to feelings they may find them
helpful in their explorations and to process what arises.
