This Sense-ational Life {Connection}

About five months ago when I was journaling at one of my favorite local cafe’s, I began thinking about the progress I had made in my life. I thought about some of the difficulties life had given me and some that I created for myself.  I thought about areas of my life that were blooming and just what had brought me to that spot….and I realized with much of the progress I had made that being mindful, being present sat the core of my healing.  As I was writing, I toyed with the thought that the more I got in touch with my senses, the more sense-ational my life became.

The phrase was clever. I sat with it for a long time, musing over its playfulness and the wisdom it captured. Then I imagined sharing it with YOU.  Sharing This Sense-ational Life….a weekly challenge where we will explore some aspect of life that one might say is sensational. What a great way to connect with ourselves and others.

That’s what I do, you see.  I am sort of a connection junkie. I love a good connective relationship, one that makes me feel alive and that shows me something real about the person in front of me. And if the connection is super conductive, I know it because the person in front of me gets me…you know, really GETS me…and I get them.  That circular witnessing of one another is called reciprocity. It is the gem stone in a relationship for me.

Connecting often includes others senses. We listen to one another…and hear one another. We intuit meaning.  We share breath and create one moment after another.

I decided to begin This Sense-ational Life series with A Sense of Connection because it holds so much meaning for me personally and because this space is about that.  Connection has many nuances. Sometimes I try to hold a diagram of it in my head. One relationship can have many points of connection within it. The couple (be they lovers, friends, family, strangers, co-workers, or life coach and client) has a certain quality of connection to each other and each person has a connection to themselves.
