I’ve never shared publicly about my own struggle with having a sensitive stomach before, but more and more I’m noticing that many of my highly sensitive female friends and clients are dealing with the same experience. Since I’ve been researching this area extensively for years now, and constantly looking for ways to soothe my own sensitive stomach, it seems like a good time to share what I’ve been learning. Here are my Top 3 Tips…
Highly sensitive people *especially* benefit from taking time the to meditate, because it offers a break from too much sensory stimulation, and the space to be at peace with what is left over. It is one of the most powerful tools available (and free!) for creating a life of magic and miracles, while on the journey to fulfilling the soul’s purpose.
Highly sensitive people are a small percentage of the population, so it’s easy to be regarded as “different.” And being regarded as different can easily lead to feelings of self-doubt. For those of us who are highly sensitive, it’s tempting to undervalue our sensitivity by throwing ourselves into our work (or choosing the wrong work) only to burn out much sooner than if we paid attention to our internal guidance system. The best way to start honoring the Self and benefiting from it is by celebrating who we are as sensitives. That’s why I wanted to share this article—full of empowering benefits of being a highly sensitive person!
Why Sensitivity Matters Many people who are interested in the things I talk about here on my blog (finding your purpose, making money following your passion, following your intuition, living magically, etc) are highly sensitive people– like me. If you think you might be a highly sensitive person too, this article will help you discover and honor this trait–whether it’s in yourself or someone else. So why is this trait so important? Well sensitives are different—not just any job is right for us, and we are uniquely wired to serve the world in a way that is different from the rest of the population.
Do you find yourself reacting easily to the moods of others around you? If so, you may be an emotional empath. Some highly sensitive people are also emotional empaths–they feel their own emotions and physical sensations more intensely than most, and also absorb those of the people around them. If you’re wondering if you could be an emotional empath, here is a quiz to find out. It was created by Dr. Judith Orloff, an Intuitive Psychiatrist who is also an emotional empath. This quiz is from her book “Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life.”
A Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is someone who has a more sensitive nervous system than most. 15-20% of the population is considered Highly Sensitive and feels physical and emotional arousal more easily. Have you ever wondered if you’re a Highly Sensitive Person, someone who truly does feel more than most?
