Have you ever been told that you’re ” Too Sensitive” ? And have you ever felt like being sensitive was a bad thing?
From the time that I was very small, I have always remembered being sensitive. I was a very sensitive little girl. I easily took on the thoughts and beliefs and opinions of others. I was not only sensitive physically, I was sensitive mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. This led me to feel overwhelmed by what others thought of me. I would step into a room and feel the energy that was in that room and be able to tell if someone was upset or angry. And this actually led to a lot of stress and anxiety in my life throughout my teenage years and into my early adult years.
It wasn’t until I began some healing work that I started to realize that sensitivity is my superpower.
For those of you that are sensitive and have been told that you’re sensitive, it often is looked at as a bad thing. I’m here to tell you that it’s not a bad thing. It can actually be an incredible, amazing gift when you know how to control it, when you know how to hone it and how to direct it for your highest good and the highest good of others.
Having sensitivity as a superpower can actually be pretty cool. It can allow you to relate compassionately to what others are going through. It can allow you to see things from a different perspective rather than always jumping to conclusions. A more sensitive individual can often have many ways at looking at something; many different perspectives.
It can also allow you to want to help others in a more meaningful way here on the planet.
If you feel that you may have this sensitivity as a superpower and it’s often to be looked at as negative, I have some tools for you. So often when we’re sensitive in our society we hear that it’s wrong, it’s bad, you’re too sensitive, stop taking everything so personally.
I think when it’s out of whack and it’s not quite in tune, like a piano that doesn’t work properly, your sensitivity can wreak havoc on your life and the lives of others because you’re not honing that and tapping into that superpower and learning how to use it effectively.
When you learn how to use it effectively, it can be very powerful.
I’m here to give you three ways in which you can turn that sensitivity into your greatest superpower so you can be here and deliver that on the planet and be of service in the best way possible.
#1 Practice lots of self-care. I can’t stress this enough. Practicing self-care has been a lifesaver for me. It has been the thing that has literally saved my life at times where I didn’t know what to do. I was overwhelmed and stressed with life, with kids, with everything, and so self-care became vitally important. Practicing self-care can be physical. It can be yoga, exercise, taking a walk outdoors, breathing ( something we often forget to do!) It can be mental, emotional, and even spiritual but most often in my life self-care has become a spiritual practice. It really has developed and evolved into getting more in touch with who I am, getting to know myself, getting to appreciate my superpowers and being able to deliver those to the planet. Practicing self-care is so key to turning your sensitivity into a superpower.
#2 Releasing and sending back things that do not belong to you. What do I mean by that? I mean sending back beliefs, judgments, criticisms that are playing in your mind over and over that are not you. They are the voice of somebody else, your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, an ancestor from 300 years ago that’s been passed down through your DNA. They are not you. It’s time to let them go. When you’re a sensitive being and you pick up things easily, those things can keep you trapped. They can keep you stuck and it’s often those things that are causing the anxiety and the stress in your life and not actually the sensitivity. An amazing tool that I use with my clients from Access Consciousness Bars is “return to send with love and awareness”. When you see something come up, you simply say, “Is this mine? Nope. Return to sender with love and awareness.” Say it in your mind, say it out loud, or journal it.
#3 Write a list of the positive aspects of being sensitive. Write a list of all the gifts that being sensitive has given you and focus on the good that it has brought into your life. It truly is a superpower when you own it as one. For me having sensitivity in my life has allowed me to be in a space to help others heal on so many levels. It has allowed me to be in a space to feel what they’re going through and relate to them and then help them let it go without taking it on, that’s key. People often ask me how do I not take on these things from others when I’m working with them in healing sessions. It’s really a practice of my own self-care. It’s a practice of taking care of me body, mind, and soul and that helps me to bring in my superpower when it’s needed but then turn down the volume on it when it’s not.
Does this resonate with you? Please reach out to me and tell me what your superpower is and what the gift is in your life.I would love to hear from you.
