Highly Intuitive, Intuitive-Sensitive,
and Highly Sensitive Persons
You are intelligent, creative, and strong – stronger than you might think you are! You’re empathetic and in touch with your environment and the people around you. You may have been told that you are, “too sensitive,” or that you wear your heart on your sleeve. Too much external stimulation exhausts you, and you need time to regroup.
Does this sound familiar?
If so, you might be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) or a Highly Intuitive Person (Intuitive-Sensitive).
The highly sensitive person gained recognition in the 1990’s when Elaine Aron began researching Sensory-Processing Sensitivity (SPS), also known as high sensitivity. She found that up to 20% of the population exhibit this normal, but often misunderstood trait.
Heidi Sawyer then wrote about a, “refined, exaggerated type of Highly Sensitive Person,” known as highly intuitive people, or intuitive-sensitives. She explains that not all HSP’s are highly intuitive people, but all highly intuitive people are highly sensitive. Often, the highly intuitive person finds their intuitive abilities confusing or worrisome, and generally keeps this empathic gift to themselves.
If you think you might be a highly sensitive person, or a highly intuitive person, you might struggle in relationships – feeling often times undervalued, misunderstood, demeaned, or shamed just for being your true, sensitive self. Still, you long to connect on a deeper level with others. Hypersensitivity can present unique challenges, but there are many advantages, as well: creativity, empathy, and an innate ability to attune to the environment and the people around you.
You can find authentic and meaningful relationships with others, and with yourself.
You can reach deeper levels of connection, understanding, belonging, and serenity.
