We live in a world that is deprived of touch. Such a simple act, yet so often overlooked. After spending the last 3 days on my second Lomi Lomi Heartworks massage course I was reminded yet again of the emmence power we hold in our hands. When touch is given from the heart it can change someones life. With so much pain and suffering around us and so much disconnection, we only have to look around to see that people are "crying out" for someone to connect with. In a simple, loving, understanding way.
Touch is the first of the senses to develop in the human infant, and it remains perhaps the most emotionally central throughout our lives. Gentle touch plays a profound role in the development of a child and as an adult it is essential for us to thrive and feel loved.
What we are seeing at the moment is that non-sexual human touch is in danger of becoming rare, if not obsolete. It is vital to preserve human touch in order for us to truly flourish personally and as as society and continue to give love to those around us and out into the world.
Humans become nearly unrecognizable in the absence of touch. Two hundred years ago, a French scientists spotted a creature resembling a human running through the forests. Once captured, they determined he was around 11 years old and had run wild in the forests for much of his childhood. Originally the child, "Victor," was determined to be an idiot; French physicians and psychiatrists eventually concluded he had been deprived of human physical touch, which had retarded his social and developmental capacities.
This is powerful, and a power that we all hold in our hands. A power that costs nothing. A power that we have total control over. Have a think about the relationships in your life or the relationships around you. You may see couples or friends who seem to be truely connected in everyway. Take notice of how they communicate with each other. How they touch each other, physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. Although physical touch is essential so is energetic touch. You may have experienced different situations in your life where people have "touched your life" or made an "imprint on your heart". This may not have been through physical touch but through the energy that they give to you. The connection in their eyes and souls. The time they have for you to listen, hear and be present with you. This is all touch.
Our lives have become too fast and too busy and we seem to have lost the ability to focus on what is really important in this world. Sometimes our hearts have become surrounded by barriers and walls in an attempt to protect ourselves, usually related to past experiences or memories. By putting up these walls, all we are doing is hurting ourselves more because we don't allow love in and we don't allow love out. There is no flow, and quite often this is where we get stuck! This is where our live seems to come to a holt. We are fighting against the flow of life by not allowing allowing ourselves to feel. Really Feel.
