You don’t have to keep getting overwhelmed even if you’re naturally quite sensitive

 

Is it possible to feel safe and supported navigating this busy, noisy world inside thin skin?

 

 

Some people register things deeply. They cannot help but be affected by the quality of energy present in their interactions and in the environment they are in.

The upside is that you are more awake to what’s going on around you but it can be tough to be sensitive in the current times.

How do you live amidst so much pain and difficulty in the world when the prevailing social pressure is to get busier and faster, not wiser?

How do you cope surrounded by more and more ways to dissipate awareness instead of truly seeing, feeling and resting?

Overstimulation is a nearly impossible state to function in and a very easy state to get into if you are sensitive. Then, then seemingly normal things get overwhelming and the most awake and caring people judge themselves as… broken.

I want to say: please take heart! Overwhelm is healthy feedback. Judgment as a response to difficulty may be common habit but it just doesn’t work.

Whether you’re getting flooded as you interact or as you look at the physical space you’re in, your inner intensity is NOT a sign of trouble.

Overwhelm is an internal message about what you need and I’m here to support you to understand and use that message well.

Sensitivity and awareness are hugely needed in the world, now more than ever.

And you need them too as that’s how individual guidance comes in:

As old as I am, all these moments of new reality,
of a new experiencing, make everything so alive and full.
I feel how it affects me when I’m only in my head, with my thoughts,
and when I really feel in my tissues, in my nerves, in my bones.
When I am really sensitive from moment to moment
I live a completely different life.
