If any of the above questions are true for you, then
perhaps YOU are a Sensitive. I am an Intuitive, Highly Sensitive, Empath who
happens to love learning about the sciences, spirituality, and the connection
of life from an expanded perspective. Being a Sensitive is in my lineage and has been developed through years of
training, research, and what I call “Gifts”. From being a Medical Intuitive, to
talking with Angels & Guides, to having what some call Healing Hands … My
life is truly a World of Wonder.
There are many categories, subcategories, and
definitions of heightened levels of intuition, etc. I prefer to group it all
under the label of Sensitive, and at times relate to it, with the words “Intuitive” or
“Empath”. Virtually everyone has some level of these traits and have the
capacity to develop and manage them. Below are categories that I tend to refer
to and have a strong degree of all of them.
Empath: An Empath is someone who feels and/or experiences
someone, or the energy of something, else as their own. Oftentimes it is a sudden, immediate physical and/or emotional shift with no apparent reason.
Feeling the pain, illness, or condition of someone else. For example, if an
Empath walks passed someone with a headache, the Empath will suddenly have a
Picking up on another’s emotions, oftentimes with a strong mood swing which seems
to come from nowhere. Generally an emotional Empath is strongly affected by
large groups of people, specific types of people, and usually are not
comfortable with violence and anger, including TV shows or movies.
3) Psychometric: Picking up information, such as feelings and
experience from objects, such as a ring, watch, photo, furniture, and buildings.
Intuition: A heightened sense of awareness or knowing. At times
I will interchange the phrases of Sensitive,
Empath, and Intuition. Intuition can include the ability to see "straight through someone", or basically knowing what kind of person someone is. Children are especially good at this!
Medium: My definition includes connecting with those who
passed away, angelic realms, Higher Self or consciousness connections, and
animals. Some of us literally 'see' those who are generally no longer or perceived to exist in this physical realm. For some, connection to these spaces are experienced in a dream state, when the dream feels quite real or visceral. Oftentimes these are messages from those who passed on or elevated realms. Animals and babies can also be aware of the presence of others that most people do not see. Notice how a baby can be completely engaged in something you may not observe.
Seer, Precognitive, or Claircognizant: Someone who has a “knowing” and/or
feeling, without any base knowledge, that something is going to happen. They might feel a sense of dread or excitement, have a very clear or visceral dream, or have an idea of an upcoming event. Oftentimes they have a sense of whether or not someone is a good person.
ability to know, hear, read, another’s thoughts and ideas. Sometimes it is
verbatim, and sometimes it is a general awareness of what the thoughts are or
Sensitive: Someone who is deeply connected to the earth and oftentimes, significant
changes on our planet, such as earthquakes, tsunami’s, etc. This can include feeling energy centers (strong pockets of energy like in Sedona) or the lay
lines (energetic grids) of our planet.
Communication: Includes the ability to hear, understand, and feel animals. Oftentimes when one is very connected with
their pet, this ability can open or strengthen.
with Plants (Flora): Those who seem in-tuned with nature or is exceptionally good with plants may be this type of Sensitive. This connection can include various physical and emotional components.
All of these traits can be independent of, or supportive of one's spiritual or scientific beliefs. Below is
more information about being a Sensitive
From my personal experience of being a Sensitive, it
can be understood, managed and utilized for healthier living. Most people who are highly sensitive are not aware
they have these traits. Children are especially impacted because they do not have a point of reference for their experiences. Sensitives can be fine one minute and have a very different
experience the next. The first tool I use in assisting a client is to
‘clear their field’. What this basically
means is that I begin by separating the client’s unique signature/frequency
from what is not theirs. From that point, we go over the indicators in discerning the
difference between the clients unique signature to that of another’s. Together
we find ways of deciphering which techniques work best to not ‘take on’ other
people signatures. These signatures can include physical pain, emotions, and
A Sensitive can unknowingly
embody other signatures from virtually any source. The strongest connection occurs typically
with people, but it can include objects and places too. For those of us with a
very high level of sensitivity, time (when the situation occurred) is irrelevant.
An example of this, would be driving down the highway and then the Sensitive is
suddenly feeling very sad and/or in pain. It is quite possible the Sensitive drove
past a location where there was an injury. A very Highly Sensitive Person
(HSP) or Empath might feel the pain or sadness of the individual(s)
injured, but also that of their family, friends and loved ones.
This can be especially hard for children because oftentimes their experiences are dismissed, been told they are wrong, or are asked: "What's wrong with you!?!" Generally they are quite frightened and may withdraw, put on a pretense, or act out. For children that 'see' people/energies that others do not, it can be terrifying. Trust me, what they are seeing is quite real even if you do not perceive it.
These experiences may sound like a nightmare from the outside world. In a Sensitive's world, this is an everyday
experience. Many will block their experiences to the best of their
abilities, and therefore may seem quite distant or overly emotional. Many times
a Sensitive receives a diagnosis to place them on medication, or possibly self-medicate through alcohol or other types of recreational drug use. Typically this
numbs, to varying degrees, their ability to feel. From my experience in working
with these individuals, it does not impact this ability, other than to dim the
With all the above said, the
positive traits of a Sensitive are many once the individual understands and
learns to manage this gift ... Yes, I said ‘Gift’ ... Being a Sensitive can
assist one in coming from a place of understanding, diffuse situations, and be
more compassionate. It can help one to make safe and appropriate decisions,
especially in an unknown or all-to-familiar environment. Clear discernment can be at an all-time high. With the appropriate training, one can acquire the ability to tune down, turn off, adjust, or amplify the heightened awareness/ experience. These abilities, when consciously
directed, can offer the opportunity to develop great people skills and to come
from a compassionate heart. The skills I teach are relatively easy to do and
can be life-changing. I work with people of all ages. For children, I work directly with them and assist their loved ones in understanding the child's unique qualities and new ways to problem solve with them.
Everyone has the opportunity to
heighten or manage these abilities. Some are born with a highly developed
state, others become more sensitive as life goes on, and some block this
ability (via trauma, being overwhelmed, medication, or a stubborn/stuck mindset). Often times it becomes
highly activated in puberty or in a significant life-changing experience. If you
are a Sensitive, know
you do not need to suffer. There are tools to assist you in
managing this and ultimately, it can be one of the greatest gifts in your life!
