Power of Desire: Sense

Devil logo 052316 On Aug 9, I’m hosting a teleclass called “Devil May Care”, using the tarot archetype of the Devil to help you connect to your power of desire. One way to connect to your power of desire is through your senses.

In western culture, desire is often perceived as a double-edged sword. You’re damned if you do (greedy, hedonistic, selfish, shame) and you’re damned if you don’t (puritanical, no fun, joyless, scarcity complex). How can we meet our desires in a healthy way?

When you experience your desires mindfully with all of your senses, you fill your well rather than overload on the experience. Think of eating a piece of chocolate mindfully versus gobbling it down. When you gobble it, it isn’t satisfying because you’re not paying attention to the sensory experience. You can gobble a whole candy bar and not be satisfied. However, if you eat a single piece of chocolate mindfully, you can receive incredible satisfaction from it.

Visit your desires through your five senses. You’ll see that less is more when you have all of your senses turned on.
