The senses have been known to give us an indication of what we need. If you are uncertain about that statement, think about this. Have you noticed that when you have been to the spa and have been asked to smell two oils, they would use the oil you are most drawn too? Well that is because your senses have given the therapist a sense of what you needed whether it be relaxation or to be invigorated.
Still not sure? Think about a time when you had been ill and have been drawn to certain smells of food and been nauseated by others? This is an indication of how the senses can be used as a healing tool for the body and the tickle of the sand in your toes.
A walk in the park or a stroll on the beach isn’t only relaxing because of the act of walking but also because of the sensory experience that is part of the journey, the smell of the flowers or of the ocean.
