The Consciousness Has Shifted...The Awakening Has Begun
Just wondering if anyone else on here is like me in the fact that they react badly to harsh words or sometimes even just blunt words and even when someone is not being mean you still react sensitively? Because I have that issue, actually I've always had this issue - I guess I was born with it, I take everything either seriously or react way too sensitively towards it.
I've been told numerous times that I'm too hypersensitive and to stop and change this, but I can't stop as it's something that's a part of me.
I've heard that its a starseed thing - especially from those from higher realms but I just wanted to clarify to make sure.
To be sensitive to words said by someone, even if they didn't sounded offensive... it's the ransom for being empath. We can sense the intents behind the words. However, we can also be fooled by that "gift", so we have to remain cautious and to not jump at people's throats too quickly. Most empaths that i met forgive easily and try to see the best in everyone... so we tend to be confuse between our good will and the things we often sensing. So to learn how to shield ourselves is more than a necessity to avoid being perceived as bipolar crackpots freaks who gets offended for no reasons. With our natural ease to see the best in anyone (and give second, third, fourth chances) and because we can sense people's distress, we tend to attract toxic people. As empathy could be see as a gift, it can easily be feel as a malediction.
SHIELDING SHIELDING SHIELDING!!!
I think this is what Asar said - shielding. It is needed, especially when you work with people. I always try to give my best, I fail sometimes - lack of shielding I suppose. But children teach me a lot, also about how to remain pure while interracting with others - still lots to learn :)
Btw I see you are a carer too, greetings :)
Yes, I absolutely feel this. For example, if someone says something with a negative tone, or they sound frustrated, sometimes it can make me burst into tears and I will feel bad for a few days. The wrong look, the wrong tone of voice, the wrong word, can make me so sad. Even simple things that people didn't mean to hurt me can make me so sad.
I often feel I need to get a thicker skin. But then I think, Why do I need a thicker skin? Shouldn't people be nicer so I don't need a thick skin? But then, I think, I don't know how I will survive in this world without a thick skin.
I think I'm trying to find a balance between my sensitivity and learning how to live with confidence.
I've been thinking of replying to this for a while, but thought all was already being said. You're not alone with being sensitive however.
At best being sensitive or empathic can be used as being able to sense every bit of hostility around us, being able to understand individual differences and roots or pains of life on greater level. Also, we grow to learn the power of mind.
However the path towards greater understanding and wisdom isn't easy. Living as a sensitive person is rarely easy. Even I have hard time accepting it in myself sometimes.
As for blunt/harsh words, I try weighing down if a personally directed expression of an attitude problem or the other person just having a bad day which is unrelated to myself, before I allow myself feeling hurt. I can get hurt by repetitive or systematic offensive behavior or become dead serious about certain subjects of life however, but then I can also laugh at those same things eventually.
Oh sweet sursugar honey ice tea yes!!
I wish to add a few more thoughts from personal experience.
1. I find that my energy is drained if I am near person who has well developed cancer... almost irresistible tiredness putting me to sleep.
2. The second seems to happen at other times.. though would possibly be an entity. Possibly draining off my energy.
3. I am generally close to a person in a relationship.. however if they start to become too negative I pull back and put up a wall. They usually notice the change as I seem somehow not so connected to them. It is a self protection thing.. because might as well as slap me because a large anger burst can be about as bad. :-)
4. Being nearly 60 in years my sensitivity became more acute when I was in places... work where I did not feel safe. More like looking out for the danger before it happened. Probably saved my life many times as I got good enough to know what the drivers of cars ahead of me were planning to do. If it was stupid.. then I was able to avoid their mistakes.
5. If you are lucky, and very rare, to get involved with a balanced (no serious personal issues) sensitive who seems to have same frequency and spiritual similarity it can be an incredible experience. Unfortunately.. very rare indeed.
So sensitivity is a multi-edged tool or experience. Has good and bad.. Cheers Dave
Yes highly empathetic
I feel a very large gap/disconnect lately from everything
I'm very sensitive to media, violence, down grading women, etc.
I'm on the wrong fucking planet because these humans cannot function without being entertained.
