The Power Of Touch!

The power of touch is extraordinary! Infants thrive on it, children cry for it, teenagers run from it and adults long for it.
We as human beings adore to be touched. Whether it is through massage, gentle stroking, tickling, hugging, holding hands, pampering, or just by shaking hands … we love the sensation of touch by another… and always in the moment of being touched, we will have a response.
This response may be ‘thought’, ‘felt’, or be a deep ’emotional’ response .. but always there will be a response or reaction to touch. Touch is a key to bring us fully present into our body, mind and heart.
There are so many ways to touch another and always it is our choice whether we give a positive experience or a negative one.  It creates sensation, opens one to deep feeling and emotion, and promises delights within its pleasure, or can be a cruel foe and set one up for deep pain.
Touch is a powerful ally when we wish to bring someone closer to us, it is also used often as a weapon to instill fear. It conveys love, through its tender administration. It demonstrates passion through its wild abandon, it nurtures with its gentle embrace…. and it can be cruel when given from a mind in pain.
The positive touch experience is softly, gently, kindly, tenderly, compassionately, courageously, openly, challengingly, lovingly, sensually, pleasurably, passionately.
The negative touch experience is harshly, abrasively, abusively, angrily, resentfully, regretfully, guiltily or judgmentally.. and all touch is remembered by our minds, felt within our hearts, and absorbed into our bodies .. physically, mentally, and energetically.
Direct touch comes through our words, our eyes, our hands, via sound, or through actions, or energetically via our thoughts, or our attitudes.
Touch is used for communicating, exploring, sensing, understanding, and brings with it the ability for one to grow in trust and truth if full awareness of its powerful presence is understood.
The deepest touch is known by two hearts fully open to each other. When these two hearts, recognise the truth in each other and trust arrives, ‘touch’ deepens it search for response …and the bond that forms ‘touches’ the whole of life within its beautiful connection of LOVE! .. and THAT is the greatest touch there is .. ‘the touch of love’.
The ‘touch of love’ with its energy of ‘truth and trust’ heals whole nations, brings foes together as friends, builds solid relationships from deeply unstable situations. Fills hearts with joy, and minds with peace. It is contained within every heart and simply waits to be recognised and accepted.
It is the very foundation of who we are.. and when we allow our ‘loving touch’ to be known by another.. we unite in that love.. we become ‘One Love’… and our touch is felt through the whole of life.
Have you consciously ‘touched’ another this day?
