Sensitive people are more susceptible to trauma but it’s also true that trauma can heighten the senses. Highly sensitive people can be caught in this cycle of escalating drama. Some sensitive people are easily crushed like Aluminium. Some go to pieces easily like globules of Mercury. Sensitivity often means permeability so sensitive people can pick up energies but also toxins, bugs and entities. All of this easily puts the sensitive person in a reactive position. To counteract this, sensitive people need to utilise their gifts, look after their energy and know their limits.
Some sensitive people have been constantly overexcited and have yet to learn what it is like to, ‘return to normal body chemistry’. Many feel on the outer or fringe of their family or community, yet to discover that the fringe is the intricate design that gives the cloth a decorative edge. Highly sensitive people work best going at their own pace or under the wing of a good leader who understands how to bring out the best in them. They make poor managers as they can blow problems out of proportion or micromanage staff.
Sensitive people need to see the positive ways in which they are different to the majority around them. Without this awareness it is not uncommon for sensitive children and adults to be frequently unwell, have fluctuating highs and lows, or experience anxiety. If you belong on the edge then trying to be in the middle will very likely be awkward, uncomfortable and often painful.
