What I call a group of people who are Highly Sensitive People (HSP), Empaths or Intuitives.
Being sensitive have been misunderstood and marginalised for very long time. Often what people hear when someone say sensitive is ‘delicate’, ‘fragile’ or ‘weak’ and there is nothing further from the truth then that.
If you search for meaning of the world sensitive what comes up is confusing.
According to Google, the know-it-all of our times Sensitive means: ‘quick to detect or respond to slight changes, signals, or influences.’ which makes sense and is somehow accurate, the problem is that that description is followed by ‘easily damaged, injured, or distressed by slight changes’.
With out society changing where extroversion and boldness is often favoured, we can see how being sensitive in any way would not be desirable, unless of course you are an alarm system or a mine detector 😉
So here I am trying to change what we think of Sensitivity.
I found lovely definition from 15c which defines Sensitivity as:
“pertaining to the faculty of the soul that receives and analyses sensory information”
This is how I see it and this is how I would love to see it.
As an HSP and Empath it took me a while to figure out how to cope with the world and how to manage my SENSEtivity. And it started a rough journey with number of health problems I developed out of lack of understanding of myself.
This is one of the reason I am really passionate about supporting and guiding SENSEtives as a health coach and Theta Healer.
In the video below I am covering the basics of SENSEtives, with some facts and personal experience.
I will be going Live of Facebook every second Thursday covering different areas or issues SENSEtives may face.
Feel free to let me know if you would like me to cover any specific subject or question.
