Have you ever been told "you are just too sensitive"?
Yes, me too. I have been told this a number of times, usually by those closest to me. This for a very long time caused me to feel really bad about myself and like there was something very wrong.
On my journey of getting to know the true me, I have learned that actually my sensitivity is my strength. I was given this gift for a reason and it is my responsibility and purpose to share it with the world.
What is Sensitivity?
Sensitivity is feeling everything at a very deep level, it is not something you have a choice in, and at times you may have no idea why you are even feeling emotional.
Another way to describe sensitivity is caring about others very deeply, have you found yourself crying or feeling really emotional and attached to people on TV?
Yes, me too. I have got to the point now where I don’t watch the news because it is just too overwhelming and overloads my nervous system. Sound familiar?
So, you know that you are a sensitive soul, what now?
It is extremely important that you protect yourself, as a sensitive soul you will pick up on other people’s feelings, even if they themselves are not aware of them.
I am going to share some simple exercises with you to protect your energy and minimise your nervous system being overloaded.
- Surround yourself in white light
Imagine you are inside of a white bubble, that covers you all the way from your head right down to your feet, ensuring it goes underneath your feet as well.
As you imagine this bubble it is important to ensure you have the intention of deflecting negative emotions whilst still allowing in guidance and abundance.
- Body Scan
Before going out anywhere, do a body scan. This involves closing your eyes and just scanning your body, noticing any tightness or aches and pains.
What this does is helps you to distinguish between your own body feels and those that are coming from another person.
If you notice body feels that are not yours, you can simply ask your angels to remove this from you as it doesn’t belong to you, it is not yours to carry.
As a sensitive soul it is paramount that you have boundaries and adhere to them with each and every person you interact with, I don’t care if they are a stranger or your family and closest friends.
To be honest with you it is the ones closest to us that are the biggest offenders of stepping over the line.
Lay out your boundaries and they are non-negotiable, as you treat yourself in a caring and loving way, so will others.
Your Sensitivity is Your Strength
Now you have a good understanding of what sensitivity is and how to recognise it within yourself and how to protect this vulnerability.
Now it is time to understand that this is a gift, being sensitive is not a negative trait, if only there were more sensitive souls the world would be a very different place.
Caring deeply for others is not a bad thing as long as you protect yourself.
Staying grounded and recognising what you are picking up on, will make a huge difference in how you view your sensitivity.
There are always going to be people that will step over your boundaries and try to take advantage of this sensitivity and this is where your protection needs to kick in big time.
Using these techniques is going to ensure that your sensitivity is a strength and something you can use to your advantage in being able to help others and serve the world as a light worker.
There is already too much darkness in our world, your light is needed.
A fun way to deal with the negative nellies who say "You are just too sensitive"...
I have had a lot of these in my life, so I know exactly how you are feeling when experiencing this statement.
I love to say “really wow thank you so much, what a beautiful compliment.” It will put them on the back foot real quick and chances of them saying it again is very minimal.
I no longer want you to feel bad about yourself or feel like your sensitivity is a negative trait.
You are a beautiful strong sensitive soul that is needed in the world – Shine Your Light Baby!
