At first, I hated being highly sensitive

May 11, 2022

I’m a sensitive soul. But it took me until my late twenties to discover I’m a highly sensitive person.

I used to feel weak because I had to say “no” to certain things. I was often drained and exhausted and I felt different.

When I was on vacation or on a trip there would be those key moments where I said “No, I’m not coming.” And I was made to feel really bad for missing out or not being a good sport.

But it was necessary for me to take that time out to recoup. To sit on the couch and read when everyone else was out on an epic hike or activity.

I was just too tired and I didn’t understand what I needed.

The moment where it all changed started at a Creativity workshop – a lady approached me and said “you need to call me”.

I waited three months because deep down I knew it would be a turning point.

It was a 3-hour call – she told me I was highly sensitive and highly intuitive and that it was time to start using my gifts.

I started to discover that the way I’ve experienced things was not common. I had never stopped to think it could be different for other people.

When people said shopping is exhausting, I thought we were talking about the same level of exhaustion. Apparently not everyone comes home with a splitting headache, needing a nap.

This led me to a process of discovering my intuitive abilities. I learned how to manage my energy and access my intuition. And now I’m so much more in sync with my own rhythm.

I know how to listen to my body. I’m much more grounded. And I allow myself a lot more time and space and make more conscious decisions about what I do in a day or week.

The way I manage my schedule is completely different.

I have set much stricter boundaries.

I don’t feel bad about saying I can’t do something when all I’m doing is creating more time for myself… sometimes to do nothing at all.

I no longer feel the need to explain myself or make excuses for saying “no.”

As a result, I’m much happier, I have more energy and I feel more at home with myself.

I’m doing what I came here to do.

I’m supporting people with my intuitive insights that I feel I’m here to share. Insights I can get to thanks to my sensitivity.

It really energizes me when I’m channeling for a group. My eyes get brighter when I’m doing my work. That’s why I named my company Bright Eyes. I no longer feel the need to hide the intensity of my eyes or the fact I’m a sensitive soul. And that’s a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.
