Does this sound like you? You’re doing all the right things…eating well (fresh, non-GMO, etc), exercising, meditating, following doctor’s advice, etc and yet you feel strangely off-balance and unsettled, easily irritated, exhausted, at times even feeling like it’s all too much to handle.
Does it seem like you are inundated by too much noise, too much input, too much emotion, too much energy, too many moving parts (things to keep track of), too much talking, too much overthinking, too much fear and hype? If so, you may be a highly sensitive person.
Not all Highly Sensitive Persons are affected by the same things
A whopping 52% of those who took our HSP quiz reported that they have hard to explain or mysterious symptoms. If you have mysterious symptoms, they may be related to exposure to energies that are very abrasive to you. Have you ever had mysterious symptoms, physical or emotional issues that you just couldn’t seem to explain….and sadly, your health professional couldn’t either?
This is a surprisingly common experience among people who took our HSP/Empath Quiz.
Are there people you simply avoid? Do you attempt to get your shopping down quickly just to get away from the store? Both these situations can be considered abrasive, yet they can be from TWO DIFFERENT CAUSES! Other people’s energy can be so vibrationally different from yours that it’s really uncomfortable for you to be around that person. The EMF radiation from WiFi, cell phones, computers, tablets, etc. is also an abrasive and draining energy for many HSP’s.
You don’t have to be an HSP (highly sensitive person) or Empath to find useful information in this post.

The Rollercoaster emotions – from happy to depressed, anxious, or out-of-sorts in seconds flat!
If you’re an empath or an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) your rollercoaster emotions can often feel out of control. They can also be extremely confusing because sometimes they aren’t even yours.

There may be scary monsters hiding under your bed or in your head if you are feeling anxious, exhausted, and overwhelmed. It seems everyone is more stressed over the current world situation. The hostility with the elections is a palpable energy, that can affect your health and wellbeing on many levels including focus, energy, tense muscles, and sleepless nights.
When you try to sleep it’s like all the scary monsters start sneaking out from under the bed giving you nightmares, that sometimes spill over into the day.
Stress, Hype, Uncertainty, Fear can Undermine you Mentally, Emotionally, and Physically.
If you are an empath or HSP you are most likely compassionate, caring and trusting. You most likely think that most people mean well. It’s hard to believe that there are some who purposefully prey on the trust and caring that so freely flows from you.
How can it be that you’re eating right, taking care of yourself, maybe even doing work that you love, and yet you are still exhausted and perhaps even sick? It could be that one of these predators is draining your energy. Unfortunately, energy vampires and narcissists are master manipulators who draw (drain) your energy and give nothing back in return.
