Empowerment for Highly Sensitive People: Part 1
Are you a person who has a keen imagination, a deep inner life, and vivid colorful dreams? Do you need time alone on a regular basis? Do people who know you say you are "too sensitive"?
Do your feelings overwhelm you? Are you deeply moved by music or art? If you answered yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person or HSP.
In her series of books, the author Elaine Aron details the experiences and challenges of the approximately 15-20% of the population who are highly sensitive persons or HSP's.
HSPs process information from their 5 senses more carefully. Your nervous system is just more sensitive to subtleties. Your brain processes this sensory information more quickly and reflects upon it at a deeper level.
This leads many HSPs to be intuitive, creative, compassionate, and very conscientious workers.
Unfortunately HSPs are more easily overwhelmed, and sensitive to noise. As an HSP, you may be overstimulated more easily than other people. You may feel stressed out, and have problems with crowded public areas and social events. You may also be prone to anxiety and depression.
In my clairvoyant counseling practice, I have many clients who are HSPs. With each of them I have worked to empower their gifts, and to help them to open and radiate their true nature.
The more we are in touch with ourselves, the more we feel our inner desire to know and be who we truly are. We want freedom to live as we are supposed to live, to fulfill our soul's potential. When we don't, we suffer. However that suffering is a hunger for our true selves to live and to be free; it is a message that we want to return to our true nature.
One of the many tools to empower HSP's are flower essences.Flower essences are the vibrational imprint, or etheric pattern of particular flowers or plants prepared in liquid form. You can imagine, as science tells us, that everything ? plants, animals, the Earth, stars ? is made up at its very basic level of vibrations of energy. Then you can also imagine that every flower species has a particular vibration different in some way than any other. The energy of a dark red rose is different than that of a bright white lily in color, form, scent, texture, and so on. These tangible factors are associated with the flower's individual vibrational pattern or 'etheric essence'.
The vibrational pattern of each flower can be 'imprinted' in pure water through certain preparation methods ? one used most often is the infusing (like making tea) of fresh flowers just picked in glass bowls of spring water sitting in bright sunlight. The water then takes on the etheric vibration of the flower, resulting in what has been termed a 'flower essence'.
The 2 most recommended essences for HSP support are Walnut and Yarrow. Flower essences may be found at most health food stores, or ordered online from many different vendors.
Walnut Flower Essence is the remedy to help protect against outside influences in general, and against the effects of change in particular. Walnut types are people who are fulfilling their purpose in life but, feel influenced by the opinions, theories or beliefs of others or of external circumstances in general. This may lead them to doubt their path.
Yarrow Flower Essence - As the soul becomes more spiritually open, it necessarily becomes more refined, sensitive, and absorbent. In the past many of those on spiritual paths were removed and protected from the daily conditions of living, so that the soul could safely harmonize and expand its boundaries. Modern conditions require that the path of spiritualization be connected to the physical world and to practical responsibilities.
The subtle healing properties of flower essences restore equilibrium on all levels of being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. They can enhance personal development and are a powerful aid to transformation. They offer us the opportunity to address outworn behavior patterns and negative states of mind which may contribute to or cause disease, emotional imbalance and spiritual disharmony. By stimulating the body's inherent ability to heal itself, flower essences restore order from a higher level and help to strengthen desirable or positive qualities such as courage, inner peace, love and acceptance.
HSPs have a unique way of being in the world. Learning to empower those gifts, and work with them, liberates you.
And in the words of Marianne Williamson: "As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
