I don't remember when I first became aware of the fascinating way I create a map in other dimensions when I'm given directions to a place. If the directions say to turn left at the gas station, inside of me I feel a space that I move through as I create my way to this place. I feel the distance and turning in relation to my bodies, both physical and energetic. I travel in space to the place I will be going on the physical plane. Even if it's a place I've never been, when I actually go there in the physical plane, it's a revisiting because I've already traveled there via other paths. I am spatial. (Special, too, but aren't we all?) I love this way of being! As one with spatial knowing, I have noticed that finding new directions or coming at things from different directions is a way of grasping the complete picture. Whether I am approaching something concrete and physical or more abstract (just as real and important) like a mental or emotional concept or even something on the subtle energy level, spatial awareness helps me know that thing in a whole way. While visual, auditory, and kinesthetic awareness get more attention in this sight and sound focused physical world, spatial awareness is not a part of the common dialogue. The more I learn about myself, the more I learn about the universe. The more I learn about the universe, the more I learn about myself. Even this for me is spatial. In this plane of existence, space is mostly thought of as what's between us; it's what separates us. But, I think it's more than that. It's the medium I use when I'm relating myself to other. It is even the medium that I use when I delve into oneness.
When I'm working with more than one being, say a human and a dog, I get a spatial sense of their connection. I sense the beams of light that connect us all at heart level. I don't see images or hear sounds or words that show this connection. I feel blurred edges of the beam, different colors, the strength of the light. I feel how the energy bodies and physical bodies of the two beings are relating in space. I feel the rough spots, the smooth spots, the gaps, the meshing of bodies. It's a spatial perspective. And all the while I'm focusing on this connection, I'm coming at it from all directions. I'm opening to new information and new ways of receiving that information with each breath.
These examples of spatial awareness are just the tip of the iceberg. As with so much learning and knowing, there are new levels appearing as we are ready for them. So, too, is spatial awareness an ever-unfolding way of experiencing this world.
