We all know our five senses – sight, smell, sound, taste and touch
… but you can develop another sense to help you become more sensitive to all that is happening around you.According to WYLDE MOON’s spiritual and energy guru, Emma Lucy Knowles, there is a sixth sense that we can all learn to develop. It can help us make decisions by becoming more sensitive, perceptive and intuitive. Emma Lucy has created a ten minutes sensory ritual that she says can help you tune in to the unspoken energies and thoughts that are happening all around you.
A crystal; whichever you feel most drawn to in that moment.
For Smell & Sight
A candle; scented according to preference.
A drink or snack; a post connect treat. This can be herbal tea, builder’s tea, a chocolate, hot chocolate or perhaps a glass of wine depending on your mood!
A Song, I would suggest ‘Temple of Silence’ by the artist Deuter. The whole album Garden of the Gods is a heaven send, if you want to sit for longer than the 10 minute duration of this track.
Remember, up-vibing and tuning in doesn’t have to be super strict! After all, this is about tuning in to what feels good to you and rewarding yourself for making and taking that time!
…also have a notebook or journal nearby, or even use the voice-note recorder on your phone, to note down anything that comes up!
Come to a quiet space; a space that when you think about it, you can immediately feel any tension in your body start to ease.
Play your music and take a comfortable seat with the candle before you, where you can watch the flame dance and flicker.
Light your candle with intention of mind, and as you do so, say ‘As I light this candle, I create a safe space to connect to my highest and deepest self with effortless ease.’
Take your crystal of choice in the left hand, and rest both palms on your knees, face up, open to receiving.
Watching the flame allow your breaths to be long and steady. Allow the weight of your mind and any thoughts that have been parading around in there unhelpfully, to pour into the flame, and burn away in its light with effortless ease.
If the mind fights you affirm 3 times, ‘This is real. This is happening. I am and I can.’ And move your attention towards the music, or the crystal, or your breath.
When the eyes feel heavy and the body has relaxed, bring the left hand to your heart centre (middle of chest), and repeat out loud, over and over until it feels ‘right’ to stop. ‘I am ready to connect with the greatest, truest power of me. I am ready to connect to the greatest, truest power of me.’
As you do so, allow yourself to travel into the intuitive heart centre. Sink back as you tune in. What arises? Watch it. Feel it. Have no expectations. When the mind wanders, come back to the scent of the candle and the vibration of the crystal. With every repetition of the mantra, note how you move in deeper to your heart centre. Deeper into the vibration, into the sensation of your intuitive power. Listen and feel. Ask yourself how it feels to you? How does it bring your senses together? How does this heavenly alignment feel?
Let the mind’s eye see what needs to be seen. Let your brilliant body, hear or feel or taste what arises for you and just watch and feel as you go. Work that intuitive 6th sense muscle, lightly log all that is felt in the mind, and let it flow again.
When it’s time to return, when the music ends or when the eyes are ready to open, let the eyes open back to the flame. Take a long breath in for 7, hold for 7, exhale for 7, repeat 3 times.
Giving thanks to and from your heart, blow the flame out.
Enjoy your pre-prepared treat. Start to pour out all you felt, saw or heard. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make any sense now – write it or record it. Digest it whilst you digest your reward. Remember, every time you come to the quiet place where you have chosen to do the ritual, you are strengthening that muscle and the clarity becomes more present with each sitting.
