I'm not so good at this, either. In my case, I think I sort of live almost entirely in my head, while my body just sort of does what it thinks it's supposed to. This is why I often walk into walls and furniture that have been in the same location for years, knock things over, occasionally "flail", etc. I used to see an energy healer, and she often commented on how heavy my head was. I always interpreted that as having most of my energy up there. I'm trying to inhabit the rest of my body more through yoga, which helps if I'm really paying attention. I'm also trying to use grounding exercises to move my energy down through me to the earth. I'm not very disciplined about it yet, so I haven't had any huge change. But I'm trying. The only time it's not easy to escape into my head is when I'm having physical pain somewhere. Then, because of my sensitivity I think, I can get over-focused on it.

Oh, and about the oatmeal in the tub...colloidal oatmeal only! Like Aveeno. If you use the kind of oatmeal you can eat, put it in a pantyhose leg and tie it to the faucet. I put regular rolled oats in my bath ONCE. After my quite pleasant bath, I had to "pan for oatmeal" forever! And my dog was oh so willing to help me. Not cool when you're nekkid.

And honeysuckle reminds me too much of all that stuff that grows wild and aggressively in my backyard. It's a pain to pull out if you let the trunk get too thick. Come to think of it, the ground's probably really squishy right now. I should go pull some. Excellent therapy if you concentrate on the little ones. :)
