We were all born with certain senses: smell, taste, touch, sight, hearing... that we develop through our years. When one sense is compromised, i.e. you lose the ability to hear, your other senses will become heightened and more aware. This is both to make up for the lost sense and also because you practice using the other senses more when you lose one of them.
Even if you temporarily lose part of your senses i.e. you are walking around in your dark house at night, you will notice that you hear noises better.
Why would we want to develop our senses further? The main reason for our senses is to keep us alive and to help us navigate the world. In the animal Kingdom, their senses are honed to help them find food, shelter, water, etc.
Here are some ways that you can practice developing your senses further without losing them.
