Are you becoming increasingly sensitive? There may be people whose company you no longer keep, places where you can pickup a sense of joy or terror, food that you now avoid and having time away from social media is essential to your well-being. I believe that this is a wonderful shift as it directs us to be mindful about what we are consuming or spending our time and energy on.
When Elaine Aron wrote her book The Highly Sensitive Person in 1996 she gave us insight into this characteristic. However lately I have seen the HSP (aka The Empath) become a prominent archetype in the spiritual and self-development world.
I identify as an HSP which is why I have an affinity with energy medicine. Being an HSP/Empath allows me to feel the subtle, the unseen, suppressed emotions and identify the archetypes in my clients' psyches. (Training was definitely required to develop my energy medicine skills and strengthen my discernment).
Like all archetypes The HSP/Empath has both light and shadow qualities:
Carolyn Myss who I am excited to see when she comes to Sydney early next year recently posted this on her website:
You are not imagining that you are more sensitive to the world around you, more inclined to need quiet time, more attuned to the emotions of of others, more perceptive about the difference between what you see and what you sense. You, along with all the rest of us, are transitioning to a more expansive level of awareness in which your inner sight is becoming dominant over what you physically hear and see.
The Empath/HSP is rising. It is rising in all of us. This archetype is softening our hearts, dialing up our senses and hacking away the psychic armour that blocks us from feeling. Really feeling. The good, the bad, the painful and the ecstatic.
As an energy practitioner I would love to support you on the journey with your inner HSP/Empath with an energy and coaching session. Either via Zoom or at my space in Dover Heights.
In the mean time to support your inner Empath/HSP you may do the following (if it feels right to you):
