The Yes & No of Being Highly Sensitive

I have noticed several posts on the Group this week around the subject of being an empath… the struggles / pain that that creates… and the things / crystals which can possibly help…

Now, I have been an empath… highly sensitive… psychically open… etc… etc… since the womb… in fact I was picking up stuff back then which later went on to heavily influence my life…

Which meant that for the 1st 30 years of my life, until I realized what was going on, I was trying to live my life in accordance with someone else’s energy, which I had absorbed into my own aura… someone else’s script…

Life turned around when I got free… and there were a lot of “energy evictions” along the way…

So I kind of know what I am talking about here… been one of my major life-lessons…

Have gone on write some books on the subject… passing on the acquired wisdom…

And one of the things I have learnt…

Being empathic and being psychic is NOT the same thing…

Although a lot of people assume they are…

Having a weak personal energy boundary is NOT the same as someone choosing to LOWER their personal energy boundaries, choosing to go around 100% open and unprotected… so that they are absorbing all the psychic stuff around them… good and bad…

The first you are born with, have to live with… the second you choose to do for some reason… (i.e. Karpman is a good example of this)…

Basically, if you have no boundaries, are not grounded, then you have no “energy discernment”… and you will believe anything… and be influenced by everything… good and bad…

One of the things which the personal development coach Tanja Diamond is always stressing… being psychic and being empathic is NOT the same…

And if you go around believing you are both, when you are not… then you are only confusing yourself… totally plugging into the wrong skill sets… and also disconnecting yourself from the correct skills + knowledge which might help you…

I wouldn’t go to someone who is just empathic for a Tarot reading say…

Yes, they could read my aura, tell me what I am feeling… make educated guesses about what I am thinking…

But with all that… they are just drawing information from the emotional body…

If they have no psychic ability… cannot connect with the mental / causal or higher… then they won’t be able to tell me anything about my future… they lack the necessary energy skills to do that…

And that’s not to even mention the ability to correctly interpret what they are picking up… if it is all in French, and you only speak English… confusion and mis-interpretation abounds…

But people assume that if someone is sensitive in one area… then they must be sensitive in all areas…

No, doesn’t work that way…

Just because you have developed skills in one area… doesn’t automatically mean you are skilled in another…

I wouldn’t let a motor mechanic perform brain surgery… nor would I let a brain surgeon fix someone’s car… (unless either one was multi-skilled… but how many motor mechanics do you know who re-trained as brain surgeons?)

The skills and experience are very different…

And then there is the whole self-worth / control issue…

In my 52 years, I have come across many people with low self-esteem… who have built their personality around being empathic… or being psychic… or being super-sensitive…

But doing that is the same as building your ego / sense of self-worth around how much money you have in the bank… or whether you have a new car parked in the driveway…

“Look at me… I am special…”

Or… as with Karpman… building your life around being the victim… or being the black-sheep… or the ill-person… or the person with permanent bad-luck… (for more about this check out Caroline Myss’ excellent book Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can).

Now… after many years… if some psuedo-psychic comes at me with the line…

“I see some terrible dark energy looming over you and… No, wait… I shouldn’t say anything… but I felt compelled to tell you… No, forget I even mentioned it…”

If they start to spin that line… I politely tell them to:

FXXX OFF !!!

I ain’t falling for those manipulative kind of games…

Because they are all about using psychic abilities to build up fake self-worth… and manipulating other people to do so…

Nothing to do with helping… all to do with control and being the center of attention…

Sorry, if this is all something you don’t want to hear… but this Group is about helping people… and we can’t do that if we start to censor the truth…

So this week, going to do a few posts around this subject… and going to ask Sue Lilly and Nicholas Pearson to also contribute… because I know they are also very experienced in these areas… and especially with regards to what crystals can help… what they can do…

And most importantly… what they CAN’T DO… because you have to do some stuff yourself…

Because in the end, it’s all about you taking responsibility for your life and fixing yourself…

I have weak energy boundaries… Saturn in Pisces for those who speak Astrologeese… I have had to work hard to get to where I am now… and I am still a work in progress…

All the empaths and psychics I know who have gone on to be successful in life have had to learn to do that… there are no exceptions to the rule… that’s just how the Universe is set-up…

… There are no short-cuts.

Namaste
