DO YOU HAVE MYSTERIOUS SYMPTOMS? HSP Series#5

do you have mysterious symptomsHSP QUIZ – SURPRISING RESULTS!

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.

ABRASIVE ENERGIES

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.

Why are HSPs and Empaths Retreating into their Houses? HSP Series #6

Picture of young women holding onto window and looking fearfully outWhy are HSPs and Empaths Retreating into their Houses?

Agoraphobia and hermitism (my term) are very common among people who are sensitive to energy – this includes both other people’s stress and negativity and electrical energy of all kinds (EMF, RF, EMR). They are simply too impacted to “be in the world” and so they retreat.

Not all avoid going out completely, but many carefully plan how much they can handle in public settings or even with small groups of people. They need quiet, alone time to refresh and regroup. Those who are super sensitive and possibly also sensitive to electromagnetic radiation are actually afraid to go out. Continue reading

Self-Care is critical, especially if you’re an HSP or empath in the corporate world.

Before becoming a health coach I worked for five years in a corporate job. As an HSP this was a big challenge for me. I found almost everything about the job and the environment completely draining, but my biggest problem was that I couldn’t understand why other people around me seemed to be fine. After the first few exhausting years, I began learning about what it means to be an HSP.

Do you have a hard time being here on earth?

Do you have a difficult time feeling at home or living in the world? Are there days when you feel that you don’t belong here?

You’re not alone.  HSPs, empaths, and others who are sensitive in one way or another often find it extremely difficult to be here on Earth – sometimes it seems excruciating. The energy is often overwhelming, chaotic and disharmonious that many are disconnected from their bodies and not at all grounded. Strangely being ungrounded and disconnected makes it even more difficult to be here. Continue reading

Are other people’s emotions overwhelming you? HSP – Empath Series #4

Ship at sea in stormDo you feel like you’re drowning in a sea of other people’s emotions? If so you may be a highly sensitive person or empath.

So how do you know, if you’re sensitive?

  • Have people told you that you’re just too sensitive. Or suggested that you just need a thicker skin?
  • Do you ever walk into a room where someone is really upset, mad, sad, anxious….and within minutes your good mood is a thing of the past. You become an almost perfect reflection of what the other person is feeling.
  • Do you have days, weeks even, where you just can’t seem to find your emotional center? You’re up, down

What is your Holiday HSP Sensitivity Profile?

What’s a Holiday Sensitivity Profile?  It’s your energy profile and prediction of how well you’ll get through the holiday!

The holidays are upon us again. For many of us, the holidays are a mixed bag. While many people look forward to them, others dread them or have mixed feelings for a variety of reasons.

I was reminded of this yesterday when talking to a very balanced, focused friend who was feeling “off” and kind of sad. When I mentioned that it’s almost Thanksgiving, she immediately knew that’s what was wrong.

If you’re a Highly Sensitive Person it’s quite likely that the holidays are more of a struggle for you, but even people who don’t normally have a problem find the holidays to be very stressful.

Shopping with Intention

Don’t you just hate the pressure of finding the perfect gift?

I do! I start my holiday shopping early in the fall, because I’m picky about what I give my friends and family. And there are always people “impossible” to buy for! I’m torn between buying what I would want or finding something to fit them. (Hint: if we love it, they’ll probably feel the same way!) Whatever I buy, I worry they won’t be happy.

Are you a Co-Dependent gift giver?

You guessed it. I’m a co-dependent gift giver.  Enough is never enough! Over the years I’ve learned to soften the edges of my holiday shopping anxiety with this simple mantra: It really is the thought that counts!
