“Your hands are tied in action, but your hands are not tied in imagination — and everything springs forth from the imagination. Everything.”
this morning [well, something that was discussed last week with my student about fingertips] while i was cleaning the stones from the cat’s water dish [if you really want to know, ask in the comments. i’ll explain ;] i became fully aware of just how sensitive my fingertips are and how i rely on them to send me messages of all sorts.
while cleaning the stones, it was all by feel.
i could literally close my eyes and ‘see’ what i was doing.
in the past, i think of this as being something that has always just been a part of me. not something i was actually aware of but just … was.
taking it for granted
after the conversation last weekend, i became more mindful and aware of how my fingers [really. fingers and finger TIPS] feel things and “see” and “know” certain things. very sensitive. very. it really is the finger from that first knuckle bend on up, but especially the upper pads and tips.
hence my very short nails.
i find long nails disconcerting on me [i can grow them. have grown them. even done tips … they are usually gone in a week]
and there is a tremendous amount of strength in them as well.
i could do a good shiatsu or reflexology massage, i bet.
something to think about.
so … anyway
as i prepare to attune my first real student [we all are learning from each other. we are all teacher/student in every which way and i mentor many in my knowledge of energy work and intuition and spirit. but haven’t in a “formal” way. until now.] i am mindful at how the energy flows not only through the body and into the hands as the vehicle to distribution, but also how the finger tips feel
at least for me
like there is a galaxy of stars just waiting to burst forth
something to impart in my teaching
sit with these sensations and really get to know them
how YOU work
stay in touch
