So, I found out quite recently that I am a Synesthete. I have Synesthesia, ever heard of it?
No, it's not contagious, it's a neurological phenomenon where the cognitive pathways combine the senses in unique ways. Apparently, there is a small percentage of the population that has this. It's like having blended senses. Some people see sound, taste color, or experience other people's emotions or senses. I have the grapheme kind, where numbers have colors associated with them as do days of the week, months of the year, etc.
So when I picture a number in my head, it is always in color, and numbers almost always have the same color, it doesn't vary for me. For instance, a number 1 is white, 2 is blue, 3 is red 4 is green and so on. They have always been these colors and it hasn't changed over time.
I remember the magnetic refrigerator magnets were so frustrating and I would ask my parents why they made them in the wrong colors. Surely this confused other children and hindered their learning process? So silly, why would they do that? Well, a Synesthete did not develop them! I also see the days of the week this way, and the days of the week have a spacial placement or a 3D arrangement in space if you will, as do calendar months and years, etc. Who knew? I thought everybody saw it this way....do you not?
I also have the empathic version (don't know yet if it has a name) of feeling other peoples body's and feelings.
The empathic part of this is what factors into my ability as an Intuitive healer. I feel other people's conscious and subconscious thoughts, emotions and even the insides of their bodies, the muscles, organs, etc. It's not all the time, and not on command. I don't think about it, it is just evident to me, usually as a sensation in my own body, which I then have to see who it belongs to, me or the other person.
During a healing session, this greatly heightens the ability to determine what is going on in there. I might feel the pain or discomfort in the corresponding area of my own body. I might feel a problem or density in an area where the energy is not flowing properly, or I might get a flash of insight about an imbalance or a word that describes the cause of the issue. Then together, we clear and release the issue and send healing energy to the area.
If you are baffled or unclear about what is going on with your health, or an area of your life, check out an intuitive healing session. Book with me to do in-person, phone or online.
