Purple Enews - butterfly on cosmosDo you think of yourself as a sensual person?

Here’s one definition of sensual: arousing or exciting the senses. If you thought this was going to be about sexuality, I’m sorry to disappoint you. Although sensuality is a component of sexuality, sensuality is much more foundational than that. It’s about surrounding yourself with beauty that fills up your senses, AND being open to the wonderful experience of drinking it in!

Here are some of the everyday challenges you might find yourself in, if you aren’t connecting to the energetic gifts of the Power of Sensuality. You may:

  • Have lost the romantic spark with your honey and settled into a hum-drum relationship.
  • Accidentally hurt the ones you love with your words and feedback that comes out more critically than you expect.
  • Slog around your house in over-sized sweats feeling frumpy and dumpy and frowning at yourself in the mirror.
  • Spend your day being pragmatic, practical, scheduled, and busy, but deep in your gut you feel empty inside
  • Live or work in a room that’s “functional” but lacks beauty and leaves you feeling flat.
  • Scarf up your microwave dinner while standing at your sink, and wonder why you don’t feel nourished and satisfied with the meal.
  • Think things like buying flowers, meandering through art galleries, or going out for a leisurely candlelit dinner are just a waste time and money.

Beauty, experienced through your senses, is a vital ingredient in the banquet of your life.
Without it, something is always missing.

These kinds of challenges can easily stem from not having enough beauty in your life. Or, they could be from not being open to receiving all the beauty that IS there. Let’s have a Sensuality reality-check.

Take a few minutes to consider all the beauty that you recognize in your current everyday life. Do you get to enjoy an awesome view on your way to work? Or do you just drive your way through power lines and car lots…or a mix of the two? 

Do you keep fresh flowers on your dining table every day, just on special occasions, or not at all? Do you fill your ears with music that uplifts you, or just listen to whatever happens to be on the radio at the moment?

Scan your life and, on a scale of 1 – 10, how would you rate your Sensuality Quotient based on the degree of loveliness you have around you on a regular basis? This is your starting point for strengthening your Power of Sensuality.

Now, having just tuned into where beauty is spilling into your world, are your senses awake enough to process the nurturing that beauty is offering you?

When you see a beautiful butterfly, do you feel yourself take a breath as you absorb it’s colors?

When you eat delicious food, are you savoring the flavoring? Are you soaking in the smells?

Close your eyes and gently rub your hand over your chair or a piece of clothing you are wearing. Take an easeful minute to feel its texture…it’s softness, it’s roughness…how bumpy or smooth it is. Let that subtle information seep into your cells.

How does that make you feel? Is it comforting, pleasurable? Does it leave you feeling neutral? Or does it make you want to pull your hand away?

Imagine surrounding yourself with fabrics you can just relax into in the normal course of your day, and how that would affect your overall quality of life.

Just like with your sense of touch just now, ALL your senses will let you know what nourishes you and what doesn’t when you connect with them. The more you strengthen the Power of Sensuality, the more you will allow the beauty that’s everywhere to nurture your spirit. You will find yourself creating experiences for yourself and others that feed your senses and soothe your soul. Read on to find out what’s in store!

Throw open your doors to the finer things in life.
Feed your senses every day and stay satisfied.

When you’re connected to the Power of Sensuality, you will:

  • Find romance oozing back into your relationships….picnics in the park, reading poetry together, offering little gifts, candlelight dinners…just like when your love was new!
  • Choose kind and uplifting words when you speak to your loved ones, and watch how they blossom with your nourishing feedback.
  • Smile at yourself whenever you pass by a mirror, because you have taken the time to make yourself feel beautiful.
  • Find it easy to take breaks from “being responsible,” to discover the deep, soul-fulfilling pleasure of feeding your senses with beauty – food, words, art, flowers, music.
  • Find easy ways to add a touch of beauty to every room in your house and office….little things that warm your heart, boost your spirit, and feed your soul.
  • Take the time to sit down to a lovely and leisurely meal even when you are alone. Ahh…nourishment for your body AND soul.

2 beautiful ways to surround yourself with the Power of Sensuality:
#1: Do you notice that harsh words put a damper on your psyche? Whenever you catch yourself speaking in an ugly way to others, or when other people drop cold or demeaning comments at your feet, sing out loud 7 times,

“I open my senses to the beauty of life!”

And open yourself up to a life filled with beautiful words, beautiful thoughts, and beautiful ways of relating with others.

#2: Keep a bottle of Sensuality Vibrancy Essence handy all week long. Every time you notice you’re moving through life quickly, practically, and busily, without taking the time to nourish your soul and feed your senses,
take 7 drops and stop for a minute. Then see if you can find one thing right away that will add a touch of beauty to your day.

Nourish your soul with more beauty.

“Modernity and beauty simply don’t mix. Pragmatism and an industrial-sized busyness denigrate everything that can’t squeeze out of a calculator. And the first thing to die under such circumstances is a passion for beauty…

 We just don’t have the time for poetry; beauty isn’t useful, we say, until we’re in our eighties, when many finally reflect and realize that beauty was truly essential to a good life that has now slipped by.”
