Energy Medicine for Highly Sensitive People

Highly Sensitive People HSPs are individuals who have a heightened sensitivity to external stimuli, often experiencing the world with intense emotions and deep empathy. They often notice subtleties that others may overlook and are deeply affected by their environment.

The term Highly Sensitive People was first coined by psychologist Dr. Elaine Aron in the 1990s. She identified a group of individuals who are more sensitive to various stimuli, including emotions, environment, and physical sensations. Since then, the term has gained popularity and recognition, with many people identifying as highly sensitive and seeking resources and support to manage their sensitivity. If you are one of these individuals, know that you are not alone, and there are many ways to embrace and thrive with your sensitivity. 

Attributes of HSP’s may include:

Overstimulation:  Highly Sensitive People may feel overwhelmed in crowded or noisy spaces and avoid violent films or news coverage as it can deeply impact them emotionally.

Heightened Sense of Empathy: Their heightened sense of empathy can make them more affected by other people’s moods. They may also be more prone to stress and anxiety because they tend to see and hear things that others may not notice.  They are often criticized for being “too sensitive.” However, being highly sensitive has many strengths.  HSPs have an increased ability to empathize with others, which makes them great listeners and supporters. They are also highly intuitive and can pick up on subtleties in their environment that others may miss.

Creativity: HSP often have a deep appreciation for art, music, and nature, and can be extremely creative. Additionally, they tend to approach tasks with a great deal of thought and care, which can lead to high-quality work.

Simplicity: HSP tend to appreciate simplicity and minimalism in their lives. They often find solace in quiet moments, nature walks, and meaningful conversations over loud gatherings and crowded spaces. The simple things in life, such as a warm cup of tea, a good book, or a peaceful sunset, hold great value for HSP as they provide a sense of calm and tranquility in their often-overstimulating world.

Decision Making: Highly sensitive people often have a more intricate decision-making process compared to others. This is because they tend to process information more deeply, consider multiple factors, and weigh the emotional implications of their choices. While some may perceive this as taking longer to make decisions, it is essential to recognize that this deliberation is a result of their heightened sensitivity rather than indecisiveness.

Change: Highly sensitive people often have unique reactions when faced with change. For some, even minor changes can feel overwhelming and disruptive, leading to anxiety or stress. It’s crucial to approach change with empathy and understanding when interacting with highly sensitive individuals, as they may require additional support and reassurance during times of transition.

Conflict:  HSPs often feel more vulnerable when managing conflict and criticism in their lives.  There can be a tendency to avoid and withdraw rather than engage.  Soft, gentle speaking tones versus yelling or loud voices can be helpful when discussing difficult topics.  Create a safe and non-judgmental space for open dialogue.  The HSP (as well as everyone else) should avoid engaging in “difficult, emotional,” discussions when under stress.

By embracing their sensitivity and recognizing their unique strengths, highly sensitive people can thrive in both their personal and professional lives. Acknowledging and respecting their sensitivities will create a more inclusive and supportive environment for everyone.
