Integrating Our Senses
Welcome to the MBSM’s musings. I know that your web browser can get crowded with blogs, so I promise to send each letter with love, mindfulness, and a small but powerful idea or practice that you can use to support your wellness and spiritual journey. Today’s theme is integrating our senses.
Often, we forget that we’re physical beings with highly complex bodies. Then, that reality hits us when we’re lightheaded from missing a meal, or sore from an overly-ambitious hike. Subconsciously, our bodies are alchemizing our environment all day long, even while we sleep.
One of our most overlooked gifts is our sense of smell. Out of our 5 physical senses, smell is the one the most closely linked to memory. Our brilliant brains spring to action when we recognize fresh jasmine or burnt dinner. Different scents have the power to calm or inspire us as much as they can cause us stress or discomfort. My questions for you are these: how do you want to feel this week? And what scent does your body connect with that emotion? By using essential oils, candles, or fresh herbs and flowers, we can create an environment that cultivates what our soul needs.

MEET THE AUTHOR
Katie wasn’t always spiritually awake. She has spent 17 years as a corporate entrepreneur at a Fortune 100 retailer, but career success and a picture perfect life doesn’t always translate into a thriving soul.
A grueling schedule, amazing young kids, the family disease of addiction, the ending of a marriage and a habit of putting everyone else’s needs above her own left her with a broken body, a foggy mind, and a disconnected soul.
She vividly remembers the day she surrendered it all and asked the universe for help. Her answer came in the form of a local women’s circle. That’s where Katie’s path to wholeness began.
Those first steps felt unfamiliar and intimidating. As she became more experienced in the worlds of reiki, astrology, women’s circles, feng shui, crystalline DNA and other spiritual wellness practices, she learned how to nourish herself back to wholeness by tuning inward and became the person that her friends and colleagues came to when they were ready to dip their toes into the mysteries of the universe and manifest their future realities in the quantum.
After a decade of learning, Katie’s guides showed her the vision for Mind Body Soul Market: a welcoming, and uncensored space for healing, nourishment, and growth. In that moment, she knew that her purpose was to provide others with easy access to trusted brands and experts, so they could begin their own awakening & reconnect to source.
