Have you ever been described as overly sensitive? Do you feel like a highly sensitive person?

Highly sensitive people make up around 17% of the world's population and are often referred to as empaths - people with the ability to apprehend the emotional or mental state of another being. Take the quiz below if you suspect your are an empath!

The Quiz

  1. Do you feel overstimulated by crowds, sounds, and lights?

  2. Do you require a lot of alone time to recharge?

  3. Can you feel the emotions of the people around you?

  4. Do you have a hard time tuning into your own thoughts and feelings but can tell what others are feeling around you?

  5. Do you feel that you have heightened senses of sight, hearing, smell or taste?

  6. Do you feel you have a hard time fitting in to groups of people?

If you answered yes to these questions, then you might be an empath.

It is really difficult to live in the loud, crowded world as a highly sensitive person.

I am an intuitive empath. This means that, in addition to apprehending the emotions of others, I am able to see and sense subtle energies in others. For years, this presented as a curse. I would randomly start to cry in groups of people, have a hard time breathing at concerts, feel irritated by traffic and grocery stores. Sound familiar?

How To Deal with It: Numb It with Drugs or Process It

In the past, I turned to drugs and alcohol as a way to dampen these senses. As a way to block out feeling. That shifted when I started learning about subtle energy and how to use energy to bring a higher sense of fulfillment to my life. Today, I am sober. I still experience a lot of contrast in my life, but now I have such an array of tools to help me come back into alignment that I don't think to block the feelings that bubble up.

I still feel overwhelmed when I go into grocery stores or to places with a lot of people. When I get around people who don’t care for themselves my energy body cringes and protests. It’s still a thing. The difference is that now I know what is happening, I have more tools for navigating it, and I make better choices knowing that I feel so deeply and that my chosen environment will probably influence those feelings.

It’s taken me a long time to learn to be okay with this sensitive super power and I am thankful that, rather than being victim to my sensitivities, I have now turned them into a thriving business and career.

You are not alone, there is support for your sensitive soul out in the world.

Here is a short energy sensing video with a few tools for learning to feel subtle energy more and a meditation to help you feel safe in your bubble while still being available for connection with the world.

I love the spring time because my energy comes alive after hibernating and slowing for the winter. New growth and blossoms are everywhere. My energy tends to ramp up big time as summer gets closer. I thrive in the warmth, new ideas and visions and projects gain momentum.

It’s my favorite time of the year.

This year marks a monumental change from what was occurring last year. I was sick, depressed, heartbroken and evicted from my life in Colorado. I hit rock bottom. EVERYTHING was crumbling but I held strong to the idea that something BIG was unfolding because I trust the universe. Otherwise why would everything need to die?

I literally was in my death year as it relates to the tarot deck and birth year numbers.

What emerged was profound and huge growth. I transplanted to Mexico, healed my heart, took my health into my own hands, published my first book, had a five figure launch and returned home to experience major success in my career and relational lives.

Home to my family, home to my friends and home to my body.

I changed. I transformed. I morphed into this current version of myself.

It was worth all the growing pains.

For me a HUGE part of growth has been learning to understand and work consciously with energy. At this point, I have a huge relational tool bag full of metaphysical practices to help bring me and others into better alignment. I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for my friends, teachers and coaches and also the many relationships I have experienced and grown from.

Studying energy has shifted my reality forever. It has brought in new levels of love, pleasure, transformation and empowerment. I just celebrated my birthday and reflected on where I was at this time last year - I was in awe of the growth that had occurred in just a year. For me, everything has changed. This birthday I was surrounded by the most profound love and beauty that I have ever experienced. A group of us took a trip to Valley View hot springs in Colorado and rented a house together to celebrate life and each other.

It was profound and showed me exactly how the energy inside me has changed. So much so that I could be surrounded by such profound beauty and sensational experiences. I released many tears over the weekend away, shed to the profound relief I felt for arriving at this place.

Last year was filled with pain and struggle, this year, I am completely surrounded by love and divine beauty.

I give thanks for the growth, struggle and energies that have brought me to this place.
