How important is our sensitivity to life?
Our relationship with the outside world depends on the five senses. With their help, our consciousness cognizes the world, through them we experience pleasant or unpleasant sensations from the external environment. Do not think that these five senses are fully developed, they still have a lot of potential. We pay them not so much attention, we have enough of what was originally laid by nature. But by the same token we narrow our lives, and in the meantime, it can be still infinitely diverse, interesting and bright. As if we chose only a narrow strip from it, having set borders for ourselves, over which we do not go, cutting off most of it. However, if we want to marry her, for example, by starting to dream, life will be transformed and will begin to meet us with new colors.
The development of sensitivity to life is very important for a woman, your perception of the world, attitude to it and to itself depends on it. Sensitivity brings love of self and peace. Sensory perception is a more accurate understanding of reality, and reality consists only of love, and only our weak sensitivity does not allow us to feel it. Your sensitivity depends on how much you feel the taste of food, how you enjoy it, how gentle and light your touch is, how much you notice the beauty around, how much you are captured by music, and how much you smell.
If you more often turn your consciousness to these moments of life (not mentally, but simply redirect attention), you will notice how your feelings become more subtle, how you yourself become more sensitive, and at the same time you will become more independent of these sensations. After all, I'm not talking about the painful sensitivity, in which any circumstance of the external world brings a person out of balance (as in melancholic). Not. On the contrary, by bringing consciousness into your feelings and actions connected with it, you become the mistress of the situation, and they will open up to you in full. This is due to the phenomenon of consciousness. You no longer lose sight of the moments, and enjoy them, bringing the action to its heyday.
Knowing each of your five senses, you will discover more and more new horizons. This can be done everywhere: walking down the street, at work, at home, away, alone. You live, breathe, and, therefore, is always open to the world, and the world is open to you. Over five ordinary feelings hidden sixth - intuition. It is already in you and in some situations it can make itself felt when something extraordinary is required. Usually, it remains hidden and forgotten. But, By returning your sensitivity to yourself, you will be able to feel its effect on a permanent basis. It will make your life much more interesting and more beautiful!
Let's get to know each other.
Today we will begin our knowledge with the sense of smell and talk about smells and about the science that studies their influence - aromatherapy. Starting to learn this art, you can plunge into the diverse world of scents and find the treasures hidden in it. Starting the study of aromatherapy, you can set yourself different tasks: it can be used for treatment, for lifting the mood, getting rid of the blues, for massage, for a pleasant bathing.

First we need to figure out how odor affects the body. First of all, it manifests itself in two interrelated processes - physiological and psychological. Receptors sense odor and transmit information about it directly to the nervous system, i.e. odor affects the body as a whole. The perception of smells goes through the subconscious, it affects the emotional center of the brain, thereby causing this emotion. Therefore, we are born with a smell assessment that one is pleasant to us, the other is not. For each set of pleasant and unpleasant odors is individual. Smell easily evokes associations and memories. So, he can bring with him joy, pleasure, or vice versa, something sad.
Aromas are the quintessence of plant life.. Plants do not suffer from those diseases that are peculiar to man. Since ancient times, humanity uses the healing power of the plant kingdom.
The principle of aromatherapy
Aromatherapy, along with Ayurveda, phytotherapy, homeopathy, acupuncture and reflexology, understands the human body as a whole, and does not affect a specific point or organ. It refers to the so-called alternative medicine. A person is not only a physical body, his health depends primarily on the general psychological state. The nervous system is the physical display of a more subtle psychological body of a person. Aromatherapy affects him.
Low concentrations of aromas will trigger the body's self-regulation mechanism.. Besides, the aroma is directly related to the human attitude. If you need to express what we feel at the moment, the appropriate smell is selected (this way we select the perfume). The reverse effect is also true: the desired flavor causes a certain attitude.
We touched only the highlights in aromatherapy. In subsequent articles, we will look at many sections of aromatherapy in more detail.
