    Multisensory humans can form deeper, more connected relationships.

    Imagine for a moment that your consciousness is like a bowl. This bowl and its contents represent your entire experience of yourself and your interactions with others. Some of the contents are individual, like an aversion to a political party or an affinity for water sports. Some contents are collective – we all know that the earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around.

    Today, many individuals are acquiring a new “bowl” by becoming multisensory. That is, they perceive connections, purpose, and design that go beyond what the five senses can detect. Unlike those who’ve relied on intellect and the five senses to experience the world, these new multisensory people are searchers who venture deep into their souls.

    Here’s the key message: Multisensory humans can form deeper, more connected relationships. 

    With the appearance of this new type of human, a new type of relationship has emerged, too. It’s called a spiritual partnership.

    Think of two mountains separated by a distance of several thousand miles. At first glance, they may seem like unconnected geographical features. But, in reality, they’re part of a single range of mountains shaped by invisible geological forces our eyes can’t see. A multisensory person knows that we, too, are connected by such an invisible and deep force.

    Have you ever thought about a friend because you sensed something was wrong in her life – and then had that very friend call you? It’s no coincidence. Whether you call it a hunch or intuition, inhabiting this connected reality is sort of like having guides and teachers who may not be physically present but who are fully invested in your spiritual growth.

    When you choose to become a multisensory person, your relationships with others change. In the next set of blinks, we’ll examine how.
