Yes, we all know that if a baby is not held in her/his infancy, the baby will die. Did you also know that human touch is actually vital to the cognitive, emotional, and psychological development and well being of humans throughout their entire lives? (As I write this now my dog, Meegosh, is snuggled up to me- just close enough that typing on my laptop becomes challenging.) Positive physical contact is vital for health. Just notice how you feel after a hug from a friend, or a high-five from a child.
So, my question is this: “How do positive physical interactions play into our spirituality?” We know that nothing happens in a vacuum. All parts of the self are connected. Do you have a story or example to share illustrating this concept?
Peace, Love, and Laughter,
Emily, and Meegosh
