Are you Highly Sensitive?
Have you ever been called "too sensitive"?
Did you know that science has found that there is a genetic trait for High Sensitivity?
In fact, 15 - 20% of people are Highly Sensitive.
The scientific term for it is: Sensory Processing Sensitivity
Studies show that people with Sensory Processing Sensitivity tend to pick up on more of the nuances and subtitles of life and our brains process this more deeply.
We tend to have a rich inner life and experience emotions more vividly.
We also have more active mirror neurons which means we can feel other peoples’ feelings more intensely.
In addition we have more highly activated amygdala's, the part of our brain responsible for the "fight or flight response."
No wonder we can easily feel overwhelmed! But, it’s important to realize that this trait
is a gift and can have some wonderful advantages. After all, sensitivity is an important aspect of awareness and awareness is key to empathy, compassion, healing, growth, and creativity.
What if you could be supported in your sensitivity and receive specific tools to
help you feel less overwhelmed and
so you can take pleasure in your gifts, cultivate them, and
share them with the world?
