We experience the world through our senses. They are feelers that let us connect with ourselves and others. But there’s a common misconception.

At school, we’re taught to believe that we have five senses: eyesight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell.

That’s not true.

Humans actually have nine senses. Not being in touch with them will cause you to feel emotionally or physically stuck. It’s the reason why so many people find it difficult to make positive changes in their lives.

Maybe you struggle with the same thing? If so, this episode is for you.

Listen in to discover what the nine senses are and how harnessing them gives you the chance to feel more fulfilled in your life. No matter what has happened to you before.

Show Highlights Include

  • How the story of a “woo-woo” German scientist opens your mind to new things (1:56)
  • How walking into a pitch-black room lets you connect with your “sense of proprioception” (11:03)
  • How to use your senses as a compass to find directions whenever you get lost (13:49)
  • The electromagnetic field in your heart that lets you sense others' feelings without words (even from 20 feet away) (16:44)
  • How to increase the electromagnetic field of your heart to be more compassionate and relaxed (18:42)

It's time to rip the cover off what really works to ditch addiction, depression, anger, anxiety, and all other kinds of human suffering. No, not sobriety. We're talking the F word here. Freedom. We'll share straight from the trenches. What we've learned from leaving our own addictions behind and coaching hundreds of others to do the same. And since it's such a heavy topic, we might as well have a good time while we're at it.

(00:33): Welcome back to the alive free podcast. Today. I wanna talk more about your brain. I promise you that last week and I wanna follow through with it. And I wanna talk specifically around the human senses. Namely the nine human senses. Yes. You heard that, right? Did he say nine? Are you sure? Are you listening to this? Did Bob just say nine human senses? I thought there were only five human senses. Well guess what, where did you get that information? Somebody told you didn't they, and then you verified it in your experience and you're like, oh yeah, this is the sense of touch. Before you knew that you were already feeling things and you didn't know to call it the sense of touch, but someone told you there was five senses. And who was that person? Were they, uh, the knower of all things is that who they were.

(01:18): Where did that idea start? These are great questions to ask yourself about everything that you believe about life, because even challenging the bedrock of certain things that you believe to be true can open up vast new possibilities for experience and for existence to explore and to set down suffering in pain. That was needless. And you didn't realize it was just because you were you accepted and took for granted something that somebody else taught that may not have been actually true, accurate, or may have only been partially true or something like that. For instance, the word protein, the word protein didn't show up really until the early well mid 18 hundreds with some German scientists proposed that that was what food was made of. And that's where we got all of our energy and stuff. But then when they finally, he himself went and did some other experiments and some other things trying to look for these things called proteins, and he didn't find them in food as some constituent particle, he found some other things.

(02:19): And so that kind of gave way to different thought processes around it. And then somewhere later on, people had 1907. I think people had to convene a way of like getting rid of the idea of proteins and these other things, and ended up with the modern definition of pro protein as a basic building block of organic matter. But before the 18 hundreds, there were people that still were existent and they didn't call it proteins. And they were living very incredible lives in different varies on the planet. And there were some that were living horrible lives and the people living incredible lives, weren't sitting, sitting there busy, worried about whether they were getting proteins and carbohydrates and whatnot. You've just inherited that nomenclature and that language. And so assumed that it's the case, but what does the word protein mean? It means like the first basic principle and then science figured out that proteins are made of amino acids.

(03:08): So proteins actually, aren't the first principle anymore, proto meaning first, right? And then in, or in being the thing that is first or having the quality of being first and, and atoms, uh, are smaller than those, um, and cells and so on. And so proteins are way up the chain from those things, but the name stuck. And so we have this thing called protein, meaning the building blocks are the first things, but they're not even the first things. And guess what amino acids that you think, oh, no, I need to get all these amino acids from food are basically built of like nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. And that's about it. I mean, there's some other things that kind of get attached to 'em, but like, those are the basic building blocks and those are things you can get from the air. So when people are like, but I need to eat my protein, are you kidding me?

(03:55): Really? Really like the animals that you eat, oh, their protein. Where did they get their protein? The gorillas that are munching on leaves nine hours a day, you know, where are they getting their protein? Well, no, they get their protein from bugs, cool animal, but I need B12. I need to get B12. And so I gotta eat meat. Really? Where did the, where did the animal get? It's B12, right? It's like bacterial poop or something. And it's coming from plants and it's coming from other things like you poop B12 because your own gut makes it, your body makes water. It doesn't have to necessarily drink water as much as you think. Cuz it makes water. When, as a byproduct of amino acids getting hooked up together. In other words, there's a lot of stuff about your body and your life that goes on, that you haven't even questioned yet.

(04:45): And here's where I deeply respect science is because really good scientists keep coming up with clearer and clearer questions. And because of their clarity of questions, they are looking and finding things that they wouldn't have found any other way. It's time that you started questioning and thinking about and considering things including this thing called how many senses do you have? So we know there are at least five senses. What's a sense first the word sense means to, in a sense ha feel right? That's all, it means, uh, something that is being in some way, shape or form. And so your, your senses are feelers basically. And you are engaging and interacting with the world and gathering information for, with the world. They are your radar detectors. They are your alarms. They are the things that are telling you what's going on outside. You don't actually see the world as it is.

(05:40): You see the world as you've made it. And in other words, your senses, the faculties and capacities that your body has to detect what's going on in the outside world are feeding all that information to a central processing unit like namely your brain, both the, like the instinctive parts of it and the parts that are conscious. And then your brain is piecing those together in this masterful and instantaneous almost action of creating a worldview of creating a three-dimensional experience of reality inside of your own head. And it feels to you like you are seeing the outside world because that's how good you got at piecing things together. And you don't recognize that you all of it is a projection of your own mind. If you want evidence of this, just look at your own finger in front of your face and then look at something that's behind your finger.

(06:36): And you will see two fingers. In other words, if reality was what you were seeing, then you wouldn't see two fingers. You would see one all the time, but you don't see reality. It is as it is your eyes pick up different angles of light and then your brain pieces them together. And depending on how they're focused and how the muscles inside the eyes are acting and the way the retina receives it, yada yada, yada your brain pieces together as best it can a picture of what's going on, but that picture can be deceived otherwise mentalists and magicians, wouldn't be able to take your money for a good show. Okay? And so your senses are, are just ways that you interact with the world and there are more than five ways than you do it. Now, some people talk about dimensions that there are this many dimensions to existence and so on.

(07:23): And so forth. Dimension is interesting because the word means that which comes from the mind . In other words, reality might not have dimensions. A person that is really messed up has dementia. meaning they've kind of lost their mind or lost control of it or access to it in some way, shape or form or last lost its its capacity to function. But dimensions are the same thing. And what if your senses are different dimensions or different facets or aspects or ways that you just interact with the world? So there's five that you know of there is seeing smelling and there is taste, touch, and then there is hearing sound, right? And so those are the five and those, we don't need any explanation of necessarily I'm, I'm fairly certain that, you know what I mean by that. And some people may have developed their site more, more than other people.

(08:17): Some have developed their smell more than other people. Some their taste buds, more than other people taste and smell are inextricably kind of inter intertwined. And you have different taste buds and uh, old factory nerves in different areas so that your body knows whether something's inside your mouth or not inside your mouth and so on. And so as a result, it gives the body a different experience of it. In other words, the taste buds are sensing something outside and telling the body, oh, this is coming and preparing the body for it or not. So you have these five senses and they operate in a certain way and they send all their information to your central processing unit, but you have other senses. And so far scientists have found if I piece it together. Well, uh, prominent neuroscientist says eight. I would tell you it's nine because she doesn't list one of the ones that has been found with some other research.

(09:06): So I'm gonna give you all nine here. One of them is a sense of balance. In other words, a sense of understanding whether you're up or down, you notice that's not that doesn't have to do with vision. You can see something upside down or right side up and whatnot, but that's not what tells you whether or not you are balanced and facing upward. Some of that has to do with what's going on inside of your inner ear and in terms of balance. Um, but I would suggest that what it's detecting is the acceleration or the pressure that is being placed on the velocity of your blood cells and the stuff inside of your body. In other words, you are accelerating at sea level at 9.8 meters per second squared or something like that toward the planet. If all of a sudden I turn you sideways, then the direction in which the cell, the cells go will change.

(09:51): And eventually, and that will feel like I'm not, I'm not upright. And then if I turn you upside down, you'll definitely not feel upright. And also the blood will rush to your head because the muscles aren't designed to pump it all the way to your feet upwards, they usually pump downwards that way. And so you'll have a pooling of blood in your head over time. So what I would suggest to you is that this is a sense of velocity, or you could say balance, but a sense of velocity. In other words, a detection of whether or not you are in movement in one direction or another. Now if that movement isn't changing very much, then your body would just get used to it and assume that you're not moving. Just like when you start to accelerate in a car, you experience G-Force and, and thrust in the acceleration of your body.

(10:37): And that is what tells you, Hey, I'm moving in this direction, but if you've been going there for a while, your body adapts to it, now it's going that speed. Now it's not accelerating anymore. And because it's not accelerating, then you don't feel like you're moving in in one direction or another one. In other words, it's a detection of acceleration or velocity, which has a direction to it, but maybe acceleration is a better word for it. So that's one of the senses that you have. And that's one way that you interact with the world. Uh, it's related in some ways to a sense of proprioception. In other words, proprioception, proprio meaning self inception, meaning catching like reception, you catch something inception, you catch something inside exception, you catch something out from within deception. You catch them down from something. In other words, you, you take 'em away from it.

(11:22): So this idea of catching something appropriate perception is how you catch yourself or see yourself or gather that that's where you are. And it has to do with your positioning in space. In other words, if I extend my arm out in front of me, there's a sense of length of, and depth perception of where I am in space. So this three dimensional space that you create, that's not sight sound, taste, touch, or smell, or any of that stuff. Your body is grabbing a sense of three dimensionality from all of those things, but it's got a different sense of that and where your body, its relationship to all of that inside of space. So it's a different sense altogether. And, uh, it's, it may be pieced together as a secondary sense from other things, but the whole lengthening and extending of the tendons and knowing where they are in space dancers, martial artists, athletes of various kinds, develop this to a certain extent so that they know exactly how and where they can move stuff.

(12:21): Fighter pilots have to have this, you know, all kinds of people have to have this. So everybody has it to a certain extent. And the more that you have it, the more you're able to navigate spaces and obstacle courses and all kinds of things like that. So proprioception where you are in space, what your body position is like in space and how, you know, things. When I was working with Vladimir, you know, he would have us go through drills and exercises, beautiful ones. Like he would have us walk into a room and like, okay, close your eyes. How many, how many steps are you away from the wall? If you don't know that, then it's important thing to start to train that. So, so kinda like cool, Jason, born training . And so we'd have us close our eyes and walk that many steps and our body would experience a sense of like, no, no, there's something near me. Even before we got there, like sound particles, it could be partly way, uh, sound waves that we're hearing. And so the hearing has changed and it here, we it's like we hear something closer, a sense of pressure on the skin possibly, but ultimately just developing a sense of space is something that's proprioception.

(13:19): If you or someone, you know, is looking to drop the FBO of freedom in their life, whether that's from past trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, or any other host of emotional and personal struggles, but they just don't know how or want some help doing it. Head on over to the freedom specialist.com/feel better now and check out some of the things we've got in store for you, or book a call. So we can look at your unique situation and get you the help that you're looking for.

(13:50): The eighth sense would be the electromagnetic sense. Now this is something that a lot of people would be like, what are you talking about Bob? Now electromagnetism, the earth has an electromagnetic field. And there are, um, tribes of humans whose language is built around a deep understanding that humans can orient themselves in space. According to the earth fields, very, very easily, uh, electromagnetism itself, you get, and birds are using this to navigate. Whales are using this and sharks are using this to migrate back and forth and back and forth. So it's all over the place that animals of various kinds are using the Earth's magnetism and fields as way finders and points of direction and humans to it too. So if these tribes of people were asked to move over on a bench, they would ask you to move north or Southwest or something, rather than asking you to move right or left because their language doesn't really operate in terms of relative markers like English does to say, move right or move left.

(14:48): And as a result, if you took those people and you blindfolded them, which they have done, researchers have done, and you spin 'em around in a room and you ask 'em okay, cool. Which direction is north? They point to it inherently every single time. And after 2030 times research is like, okay, fine, whatever. But if you put 'em into a room that has, is somehow ally sealed, then all of a sudden they can't figure out which way is north. And they start behaving any erratic patterns and hopping around in all kinds of different ways, just because now their ability to sense the magnetic field of the earth is gone. Now that isn't sight sound, taste, touch, smell, or any of that other stuff that is literally a sense of where the magnet, the magnetic fields of the earth are. Now, here's where I will take this deeper one.

(15:30): There are, there is Biogen magnetite. It's called that in your ethmoid bone. And in other part plates in parts of your body. Now your ethmoid bone is the only bone of your skull that is not accessible from the outside, meaning you can't touch it with your finger, unless you stick your hand way back into your eye socket, only there on the inner side of your eye socket way back in there. And I don't recommend doing that cuz you might lose an eyeball. That's where that is. And so it's connection with the eyes. They have found cells in the eyes that seem to hone in on places and recognize locations on the planet as if there's some magnetic trace to them. And somebody got a Nobel prize for that sometime recently, I think for identifying and recognizing some of the function of those cells in the eyes.

(16:15): And so this bone sits there like right behind your forehead. It's the very tip of your spinal column. If you really look at how the vertebra are set up, the emo mode would be the final and last vertebra. Um, even though the nerves then play out into the, into the brain and there's nerves cells everywhere and it's not really a chord anymore, but a jumbled like a massive ball of AMA amazing activity. And so you have this right there in your skull. Now, the earth, isn't the only thing with a magnetic field. The human heart has an electromagnetic field that exists. That extends anywhere from eight to 10 feet outside the body, depending on how well they are and what state of mind they're in and what state of being they're in. It extends even farther. So when you walk into a room and you just have a sense that somebody's feeling something, that's not your sense of taste, tight sight, touch, smell, or anything else, you're literally interacting with their magnetic field.

(17:06): So 20 feet away from somebody, you might be able to pick up on something that's going on with them and your body might be unconsciously already adapting to it and adjusting for it without you even knowing and tell you, develop your consciousness of this sense. In other words, everybody has these senses, but only some people practice and train the ability to be aware of these senses and then to use them. Now, one of the reasons why equine therapy has been found to be very effective for a lot of people with stress disorders and mood disorders and whatnot is because H horses have a much bigger electromagnetic field. So the electromagnetic field of their heart extends some five times larger than that, of a human. In other words, anywhere around like 40 to 50 feet away from 'em, they, you are inside of their heart space.

(17:56): And what's fascinating about a horse's heartbeat is that all of the chambers of the heart are operating in perfect coordination. In other words, what medical science would call coherence and because of a high degree of coherence stress hormones start to go down all of these chaotic rhythms inside of the humans. You're being influenced by the horse's heart, just by being in its presence. And as a resort, you result your own worries and fears start to dissipate. It doesn't solve any of you, the core issues in your life, unless you stay around that horse forever. When you go back into your normal life and you start behaving the way you normally do, then all of those patterns will be rebuilt unless you learn skills on your own, but being around horses can help. So can being around so many other things, forest bathing, there's so much that can do this for you.

(18:42): Human cardiac coherence is something that can be influenced by breath rate. And that's one of the things that we teach at retreats is one way of breathing that has, that brings the, the human heart into a less chaotic state. Imagine your heart beating th THP and now add all these stresses. And now it starts almost stuttering like speech, not that exaggerated, obviously, but the more coherent it is, the more it will work in these synchronous waves. And that means blood won't be getting trapped in certain ways. Your heart rate will be more efficient. It will find more rest and all of these other things. And that has to do with neurological activity in the heart. And that's where your electromagnetic field comes from. So that can be influenced by somebody who's really on point and doesn't have a lot of stress in their system, just being around them can be a relief.

(19:30): And you've probably found that that's your electromagnetic sense at work. And if you start paying attention to it, you might actually be able to start to detect things earlier on and use that as one of your human senses. The last one, the ninth sense I'll talk about is in interception now in interception is your ability to feel what is going on inside of you. And I would suggest that this is a catchall phrase that could have grabbed all of these other things. The one around acceleration, the one around proprioception and the one around electromagnetism. And so this one might break off into a few more senses as scientists and other people continue to explore, but this is your ability to detect internal tension patterns inside you, pains and sensations of nerves going on inside your skin, tickles and rushes and brushes that aren't you touching the outside world, but literally some sense of things happening inside of your system, energy healers and Tai Chi, people, and yogis might talk about it as energy.

(20:27): Um, they might talk about it as Chi. They might talk about as something else, but whatever you wanna call it, what they're detecting is some kind of neurological activity and result in tissue activity inside of their own skin. And that would be called in interception. This is something that is not taught, um, in human life. This is not something that is not school. Most of these aren't schooled in, in school settings. And yet this is where the juice is when it comes to being able to be free of past traumas of emotional struggles and whatnot, learning to understand how the body is piecing these things together, inside yourself, and then learning the skills to be able to dismantle them so that they stop coming up. That's what we focus on extensively in the retreat settings that we go to, that I have created over time and really honed in so that we can really help the person's body and nervous system understand that they don't, they're not stuck, that they actually have another option and they can start to move in that direction and have such an experience that it holds it there inside of them for a good period of time while they're learning the skills to maintain it.

(21:31): So these are the nine human senses. And I want you to consider that one of the reasons why humans are so stuck emotionally is because they haven't developed the senses that are needed to actually master emotions, no different than like, if you hadn't, if you weren't aware that there was such a thing as a sense of smell, and then someone brings in I cane powder or or something like that, it's an odorless smell. Then all of a sudden it controls you and you die. One of the reasons like when I was doing oil painting in college, a lot of the turpentine and a lot of the solvents from what I understood at the time, and I could be mistaken on this, but I know, and, and maybe rayon also in homes and stuff, there are natural gas. Like they are some of these gases that are toxic to breathe.

(22:17): They add a smell to that. They add something to these gases so that it sets off your alarm system, your sense of smell inside of you. So that humans know to move away from it and smell like something's rotting or smell like something else is going on. And that's just because the sense of smell hasn't been developed enough and possibly also the sense inside of your system of taste, to know whether or not things are going well, your sense of taste. For instance, you have taste buds all over your body. You have taste buds in your dig, digestive tract in your rectum, yes, your lick and your poop all day long. You have taste buds in your spinal column so that it can taste the cerebral spinal fluid. In other words, it's detecting whether it's sour and whether it's going rotten or bad, and it needs to be shifted in some way, shape or form.

(23:01): It's detecting whether it's gone bitter and poisonous and toxic. The taste buds in your system are detection systems, and you might not have developed your sense of taste well enough to be able to know that your body's going south. So they add a little smell to it in order to help you, otherwise you would just, people would just be accidentally falling over and dying and nobody knew would know why it's the case. Well, I would submit to you that your emotional states are happening the same way because you haven't detected the internal arena. That's going on. Your emotions are just handed happening to you by accident. It seems, it's almost seems like they're happening from the outside in some magical display that you get hit by anger, you get hit by sadness or grief or despair or loneliness or boredom or all these other things, instead of recognizing where they're coming from, how they're being built on the inside building.

(23:48): That sense is what all of these programs that I've created are around as well as now learning to retrain them. So that by default, your body is producing such a sweet saver and flavor to your life so that you don't need outside things in order to experience wellbeing. And if you would like our help to do that, if you'd like to come to one of our treat retreats, go to the freedom specialist.com uh, check out the, the events page and, you know, sign up for a call. Or if you want some coaching or something like that. Bottom line is you already have what you need within you. It's time. You learn how to use it. And if you wanna figure that out on your own, like I had to and spend years and tens of thousands of dollars, trying to find people and fly all over the place, you can do that.

(24:31): You can experiment on your own. You can do a lot of the trial and error kinds of things I did. It's it's totally possible. And nobody should tell you otherwise, you don't need anybody else, but you can accelerate how quickly you learn. If you go to places where they've learned some things, and I've learned a few things, I'm not the only one on the planet. I won't even pretend to have all the answers, but I've learned a few things. And if you, if what I've been sharing with you over these last few years in on this podcast resonates at all, I highly recommend that you come so you can set down the burdens and finally give a chance, get a chance to live your life without all the suffering, without all the pain, no matter what has happened before and develop these senses within yourself so that you don't get controlled by what's happening ever again.
