7 Common Empath Struggles and How to Transform Them

A few years after I heard about Highly Sensitive People, I heard the term “empath”. I immediately related to the description of people who can tune into others’ emotions and often feel them as if they were their own. In fact, this ability to feel others’ emotions was one of the hardest parts for me […]

8 Ways You Might Be Compensating for Your Sensitivity

Have you noticed that the modern world isn’t built for highly sensitive people? I’m thinking about loud, hectic coffee shops where people go to “focus and get work done,” jobs where “fast-paced multi-tasking” and being “capable of handling multiple priorities at once” are listed in job descriptions, and industries where “ASAP” is the timeline for […]

10 Incredible Gifts of Highly Sensitive People

For many years, I hid my sensitivity because I thought it was shameful and embarrassing. I thought that letting people see my deep thoughts and feelings would invite criticism and rejection.

The Top 3 Things That Damage Your Energetic Boundaries

I’ve been learning about, and supporting, Highly Sensitive People for 15 years. Until recently, there was always an intangible element, a universal piece of the struggle, that I couldn’t put my finger on.  When I became overwhelmed and drained by someone’s mood, I felt powerless to do anything about it. In fact, a part of me […]

What Most Highly Sensitive People Don’t Know About But Desperately Need

Can you guess THE most common challenge of being an HSP? Here are some clues (quotes from our HSP community)… “I can take over the feelings of other people just by sitting next to them.” “It can be painful to care so much about all living things.” “The thing I find hardest is absorbing the emotions of people around me.” […]

How to Make Sure You Aren’t Robbed of Your Right to be Human

Did you have a role in your family growing up? In many families, each family member takes on a certain way of operating. Instead of responding authentically to each situation that arises, the role we take on causes us to respond in habitual and narrow ways. One of my roles in my family was Holder of […]

How to Reconnect to Your Authentic Self When You’re Highly Sensitive

I used to resonate with the Thomas Edison quote, “the chief function of the body is to carry the brain around.” I was most comfortable in my thoughts, and I could even talk about emotion from an intellectual, somewhat detached place.
