The summer after my sophomore year of college, I went to massage school. We were taught an exercise to expand our sensitivity so that we could better feel and respond to the many layers of the client's tissues beneath our hands.
Here’s the exercise:
-Get an old phone book
-Place one strand of hair underneath one page of the phone book and use your fingertips to feel the strand of hair underneath the page
-The next day, add one additional phone book page on top of the hair and feel
-Repeat and continue adding pages
A reminder for the overwhelmed, over-scheduled, and overstimulated sensitive beings that have created a protective barrier from the sensory world - you can always find your way back to your superpower simply by feeling whatever is underneath your fingertips.
