As a sensitive person, you deeply feel energies. You may even feel like you’re absorbing other people’s emotions. How can a sensitive person stay positive, when there are negative people and news stories around you?
Are you longing for relationships that do your heart good and generate stronger connections? Tired of poor choices? Tepid chemistry? Want a more commanding role in who you attract? Knowing about energy can transform your modus operandi in this not-always-easy area to prevent loneliness and insidious fatigue.
Last month, while enjoying some time to myself at a local park, I overheard a conversation between two women who were talking about how frustrated they were with their jobs. They were sitting close by and, while I was doing my best to mind my own business, I couldn’t help but notice how much time and energy they were investing in the problem.
I don’t know about you, but I woke up on Monday morning of this week feeling quite sad. The Olympics finished on Sunday and I think it just affected me on a very deep level. Among other things, it was really refreshing for the TV to be filled with positivity, dedication, passion, and achievement instead of being saturated with conflict, negativity or instant celebrity.
On Friday of last week, I posted a notice on Facebook about feeling more sensitive these days to the happenings in the world. Within no time there were more than 300 comments from people who could relate and a beautiful conversation about what we can do to protect our sensitivity ensued.
Every year at Week 26, I like to invite you to stop and reflect on the positive changes you’ve made in your life so far. After all, the quality of your life is directly related to the quality of relationship you have with yourself. When you feel good about who you are, you allow better things – people, experiences, jobs, opportunities, etc., into your life. Taking the time to inventory your positive changes is an important step in developing this stronger relationship. And it’s a key way to reinforce good habits.
Years ago, during a very difficult time in my life, I went to a place I always go to for comfort and clarity: I took a walk on the beach. It was a cool, rainy day, and the clouds above hung so low I felt I could reach out and touch them. As I slogged through the sand, I thought about my life and the challenges I faced. With each step I felt the weight of anxiety that traveled with me. Then, I noticed something shiny sticking out of the sand.
When I was a little girl my dad used to call me Sarah Heartburn - a funny twist on the French movie actress Sarah Bernhardt - because I had a tendency to be a bit dramatic when things didn't go my way. The truth was that I was a highly sensitive child. I cried easily, felt deeply hurt when kids called me names or made fun of me, and was prone to bouts of loneliness and a kind of sadness that I didn't understand. It wasn't until I read "The Highly Sensitive Person," by Elaine Aron, as an adult, that I understood what was going on.
On September 20th I’ll be releasing my next book, You Can Create an Exceptional Life. This book is written with Louise Hay and it’s a teaching story that unfolds over the course of a year of traveling together throughout the US and abroad. I’m excited to share this experience
Beloved one, you are the expanded expression of divinity, come from the one Source, the one creative One, come forth from before time began to have an experience known as human, to have other experiences that you are now beginning to tap into, and to be the expression of the creative One walking the face of our holy Mother, the Earth.
Beloved ones, we are always in delight to connect with you. There is so much going on and so much information and so much to take your attention right now – do you ever wonder how to make sense of it all?
