Feeling extra sensitive lately? You are not alone. You are living through an energy cycle catalyzing hypersensitivity, impacting you and people you meet in everyday situations. This means that normally sensitive people can become even more sensitive. Likewise, people not easily overwhelmed by strong sensory input can become rattled and react in unusual ways.
As 2012 unfolds there is a mass awakening occurring for the highly sensitive, creative, and empathic beings known as the Indigo and Blue Ray beings. I am addressing both as they are both experiencing many of the same issues at this time.
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.
As you go through the intuitive healing process you need to know: each of us has our own special power. We carry it within; it waits to be awakened. Call it your inner self, your spirit, or light--however conceived, you must meet and come to know your core-essence. The source of all intuition, it is your fiercest ally and advocate against danger. By connecting with this part of yourself you'll mount confidence, feel safer in the world. Then whatever or whoever crosses your path--even the devil incarnate--will be no match for your resilience.
I wanted to share with you the ascension symptoms that many of us are experiencing at this time. As a highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive person these energetic shifts have been daunting to me, to say the least.
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.
Empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme, and are less apt to intellectualize feelings. Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world. Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually attuned, and good listeners. If you want heart, empaths have got it. Through thick and thin, they’re there for you, world-class nurturers.
Many people are hypersensitive. They cannot stand the noise, aggression and hasty pace of modern society. Often they suffer from psychosomatic disorders and insomnia. What other folks take for granted, for example going to a family party, is quite a chore for them. Simply doing what other people consider normal often turns out a disaster for them.
Loneliness gets to some more than others. But why it hangs on isn't always apparent when read by traditional medical eyes. In my practice and workshops I've been struck by how many sensitive, empathic people who I call "emotional empaths" come to me, lonely, wanting a romantic partner, yet remaining single for years.
For all time, we have looked to our leaders, priests, teachers, parents and others in authority to guide us. It’s been a way to stay small and not take responsibility for our lives. We have placed famous authors and speakers on pedestals, and have given our power to them. It is essential now to step into our own power and authority, for that is a huge part of Ascension.
Regardless of your age or station in life, there has never been
another time like now. Your search for meaning and to know your place
in the world is occurring amidst the greatest cycle of changes you have
planet is humming with energy. We can sense and feel the vibrations
of the collective consciousness and all the massive changes underway.
We are being inundated with so much information and stimuli that our
systems are being overloaded. Our lives can become so busy that we
barely have a minute to clear our heads and catch a breath. We have
so many ways of keeping ourselves plugged in with the multitude of
electronic devices and ways of communication that we can very easily
detach from our own beingness.
"Your sensitivity is your greatest gift. Protect it."
Last night I went to see a movie with a group of friends. I'd heard wonderful things about the story from people whose opinion I respect, and I was so looking forward to enjoying the film. However, within twenty minutes of watching, I made a decision to leave the theater.
