The Five Steps to Healing for the Empath & Highly Sensitive Person

The Five Steps to Healing for the Empath & Highly Sensitive Person

January 5th, 2015

 
If you are a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), or empath, you are not alone. There are an estimated 40 million of us in America alone. Empaths & HSPs often face unique challenges; mainly, healing modalities that work for most people don’t always work for us. Many of us are still dealing with fatigue, lack of focus, anxiousness, heavy-heartedness (what some call "depression"),...

 Fibromyalgia has many symptoms, for example, muscle tightness, fatigue, sleep difficulties, and joint stiffness to name a few. Wouldn’t it make sense that if the underlying cause were addressed properly that the above-named symptoms (and others) could be reduced or eliminated? Wouldn’t this “domino effect” help people live more vibrant lives, help them to sleep well,...

But I’ve Done the Research!

March 2nd, 2020

 
Unless someone is “in the trenches” and actually doing research with microscopes, measuring devices or personal experience, they're not doing research; they're parroting the words (or “studies”) of others. And said studies' authors may have a personal agenda that we'd be wise to inquire about!
Let’s face it, within seconds, anyone can find both...

Are you an empathic person, very sensitive to — or even profoundly affected by — the people, energy, and circumstances around you?
Do you tend to feel the emotions of others as if they were your own… and often experience overwhelm at the weight of it all?
Maybe you constantly cater to others’ needs because you think it’s selfish to put...

I was fortunate enough to visit Puerto Rico in my late teens. My High School Spanish teacher thought it would be a good way to practice conversation in another language. What I didn’t know was that the local kids there would teach me some words, words not typically taught in High School in the late 1970s, and either they didn’t make it clear what those words meant, or I...

How long have you been trying to kill your ego? Two Years? Two Decades? Hasn’t worked yet, has it? Your ego is your opponent in life, not your enemy, and therefore your job is to defeat it, not kill it. But you can’t defeat the ego on the level of mind, you have to get past the mind and into the body, and into your emotions.
“What is the Ego and What is its...

Health issues, relationship challenges, economic hardship, bullying, rainforest destruction, the news, childhood trauma...  
Getting tired of it yet? Wanting to escape? 
I get that. And I also know that the only way out... (sorry!)... is through. 
So may "problems" are caused at the level of the mind, but...

You’ve tried everything...
And nothing works!
And even if you’ve had some success, the effects are only temporary.
ARGH!
If it seems like everyone else is getting results and you’re still running on the hamster wheel of healing, there has to be a reason. For some, they may not yet know what the root cause is. Others may know the root cause,...

Empath or Highly Sensitive Person?

April 28th, 2019

 
Have you wondered, "What is the difference between an Empath and a Highly Sensitive Person?" As these terms get more absorbed into our everyday lexicon, their meanings sometimes overlap and/or can become diluted. And as more people become aware, more definitions tend to be created. 
​​​To me, a Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, is...

I think we’re all feeling it. There’s a heightened intensity in the air. And it’s been worse the last few years and quickly worsening.
I’ve seen lots of memes and social media threads blaming it on the stars, the media, public figures, retrogrades—you name it. And while all—or some—or none of those may play a part to varied...

“Tom and Mary are finishing up their dinner at home and Tom takes dessert out of the oven. Mary, slightly disappointed, asks Tom, “How come you always cut the ends off the apple pie? That’s my favorite part!”
Tom replies, “Funny. I don’t know. I always have done that. Come to think of it, my mother did that as well. I’ll call her right...
