Sensitivities And The Light Body



Art by Maria Chambers

Whenever I come down with a bad cold, the thing that bothers me most is losing my sense of smell.  I realize during those times how much I depend upon that human sense for my enjoyment of life.  Not being able to smell the warm, tropical ocean air, the grass, the woods, the honeysuckle, or the earth on my walks, or taste my food, or my coffee. Taste, to a great degree, depends upon our sense of smell.

I remember when I was in grammar and middle school, I would actually enjoy my homework.  Well, it wasn’t so much the subjects themselves, but there was something about those big, heavy books I liked.  I liked the way they felt and smelled.

I remember how mesmerizing it felt when the bus that took me to high school would rattle as it went over roads paved with bricks.

I loved the smell of freshly printed comic books.

Of course some things didn’t smell so great.  Like gym class.  The locker rooms in particular.  And being bullied by the bigger girls had left me with, as far as that part of my school day, the smell of fear.

I loved the scent of my mother.  Of her Jean Naté perfume.  When I owned a cat, I loved the sound and the vibration of his purring.  Talk about soothing.

Since my ascension began,  I am overly  sensitive to smells.  For instance I can’t tolerate most women’s perfumes.  Especially if they are oil-based.  Most men’s colognes are more pleasant, maybe because they don’t have those heavy, sweet overtones.  Theirs are more on the spicy side.   I detest the smell of fabric softener.  At the cafe, I have to remove myself from the proximity of both the perfumed and Downy fabric softener folks.

I wash my clothes in non-perfumed detergent and I use vinegar as a fabric softener.

Even most essential oils are too much for me.  I find them very heavy.  Many household cleaning products are irritating to my throat, including bleach, and many other every-day atmospheric and environmental pollutants.

I use white distilled vinegar for all my household cleaning.

Sometimes I miss the days when I could tolerate all of the normal airborne pollutants and chemicals in various products. Because it feels like I spend an inordinate amount of time and energy trying to control my environment.  I used to love visits to the library.  Now I find the mustiness of the older books irritating to my throat and tongue.

It can be exhausting and discouraging being in a body that doesn’t yet respond to our soul’s frequency.

I know it’s the light body integration and assimilation that creates these sensitivities.  And I know it too will pass.  In fact some things that did bother me no longer do.  Meanwhile, many of us know all too well how this body can feel like a burden, and not a joy.


Our soul is into experience, especially the physical one that we are having here.  It loves immersing itself in this time and space environment.  This kind of sensual, visceral experience isn’t possible in the non-physical.

But the human feels pretty beat up at times, and can get discouraged with the daily challenges of being in a body that is still to a degree not a match to the higher frequencies.  And in the meantime, the light body process brings up cells that are resistant, and diseases at times, all there to be released.

So just as the human is adjusting to the higher frequencies, our soul is also in the process of adjusting to being so connected to its own creation, our physical body.

Our carbon-based body is actually quite adaptable to its environment.  Which is why we were not as sensitive to that environment before we began our ascension.  What we are experiencing now is the light body adapting itself to us.

And in the process the light body integrates with our physical body.  The light body is impervious to harm from chemicals and pollutants,  so as we integrate our light body, we are less and less affected by the earth environment we find ourselves living in.

Many of us are less and less affected on an emotional level by others’ energies, and even by our own mind’s lower vibrations.  But unfortunately the physical vessel is the last to catch up


It’s no fun being in that uncomfortable stage of this integration, which at times feels endless.  But it’s good to remind ourselves that our sensitivities are what makes being here joyful.  To taste, touch, smell, hear and see with heightened senses.

Most humans have dulled their senses on every level.  They compensate for it by becoming extreme in other ways, in order to feel alive.

As we become more conscious, we don’t really enjoy dulling our senses.  We are no longer trying to protect ourselves from what we consider a threatening environment.  We eventually welcome that environment, rather than retreat from it.

It will always be challenging living in a world with a considerably low consciousness, but our soul knows, with the help of the human, how to navigate this Earth, and she knows how to adapt and adjust to our physical body.  In turn, our physical body benefits in ways it could never do on its own.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Almost a decade later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. I can so relate. When I am pet sitting I bring my own towel because the laundry detergent and fabric softener smells are way too strong for me.

    In my dance community we ask folks to refrain from wearing scent. Occasionally someone will come in, a new person, with heavy duty perfume, aftershave or deodorant. Ow!!!

    Even the so called natural scents can be too strong. I use a lot of vinegar, also.

    This human body is so interesting in this process. Just when I get used to something…… Shift…. Shift…. Shift…..

    Still waiting for this weight to fall away…..I just want to FEEL lighter. If I don’t need the protection anymore for my Empath self……WTF?

    I probably think about it too much. Ha! It will probably be the last thing to clear for me. I love myself so much more than ever….. And mostly I can see my beauty even with the weight….so…..

    Okay, I’m really outing myself now…..heehee

    Thanks dear sistar!

    Love you!!!

    • SiSTAR, I love that you are open to sharing your feelings and experiences and vulnerabilities. I don’t think there is anyone who DOESN’T relate on some level! And speaking of weight, I looked around Starbucks today, and I noticed there were several women who were not what I would consider thin, and they seemed very comfortable in their bodies.

      Then I looked around and noticed several men who I wouldn’t consider trim, or particularly sculpted in the muscle department, and not one of them seemed uncomfortable in their bodies either.

      Then I noticed I am a little more ‘packed’ in the tummy area these days. I felt self-conscious at first, and then I had to snap myself out of it. Also my arms. A cafe friend jokes with me often that he wishes we could trade arms. I guess men like large arms. I’m really not insulted. Large arms means I can lift and carry things more easily!

      Could it be that we women are finally relaxing and getting o.k. with our bodies?

      • I know I am WAY more comfortable than I was. And it’s getting better all the time…. Better better better….🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶 Sing it! Thanks! I knew you would understand.

  2. Hi Maria, I could feel the energies of what you are trying to express in your drawings
    Though I’m not sure how to put it out in words… I Just Feel It… : )

    • Thank you. And, yes, it is hard to put into words, isn’t it? In fact when I draw I really don’t have any ideas in particular. But they all seem to be inner portraits of one kind or another….and, speaking of words, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand of them…💜

  3. Once again totally nailed it Maria! You voice what so many of us feel but can’t quite articulate as eloquently as you! 🙂 Thanks for making us feel we aren’t crazy or alone. Sensory input has done a 360 for me… I used to be a cigarette smoker years ago and was numb to all scents. Now I’m like you too…can’t stand most smells especially perfumes, cigarettes, chemicals and filth. I laughed when you said it was easier living in this world when we were so de-sensitized to it.

    There was once a movie called “Safe” (in the 90’s I think) about a woman living in LA (like me) and she started getting really sensitive to the sounds, smells, and sort of assault of living in the city. She ended up moving out of the city to a commune type place where it was really the other extreme, in kind of a sad way. But a prescient film to foresee this coming so you might like to check it out if you haven’t.

    QUESTION: if you had to give up just one of your senses, which would it be? I would easily choose SMELL, even if it affects TASTE as there are many more bad smells than good these days haha 😉 And I couldn’t go without eyes, ears, move, touch, so yes, smell would get the ax for me! What about you?

    Much love, Shar

    • p.s. love “The Sensuous Planet” track you posted- great for meditation too! Beautiful soundscape!

    • Thanks, Sharleen. Yeah, there were definitely benefits to being desensitized. And, I can’t even imagine how challenging it is living in L.A. as an awakened being. I will definitely check out the movie.

      And which sense could I live without. It’s really strange you ask because just this morning the same question crossed my mind. And my answer is probably very different than it would have been before my awakening.

      Because my answer is…….wait for it……..NONE.

      I wouldn’t stay here if I couldn’t experience this reality with all of my senses. I feel like at this stage of the game, with all I have gone through and still am going through, I need to be physically upgraded, with a totally recalibrated body, or being here would not make any sense.

      All the more reason for me to keep allowing in my divine presence.

      Love to you too, my friend!💜

      • Hahaha nice! I like that you answered ‘none of the above’ and made your own rules with it. Be – cause, right? I’m re-membering that all of our experience is part of waking up in the dream with our bodies in tow. I’m with ya on the ‘physical upgrade and total re-calibration’ of the body! Way to be in your authentic flow Maria. xx
