YES - genedebs - i went through that stage too. like i knew what i was supposed to feel and was sensing something - but was not really in touch with what it was and had to analyze it and lable it after a time-lag in order to figure it out. now the lapse is much shorter - and sometimes there is none at all.
and i can tell you exactly the time and place - even the location of the chair i was in - when i switched off the feelings.
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself... And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." - Paulo Coelho
