Below Julie explains fascinating facts about high sensitivity…
“Sensory processing sensitivity is the scientific name of this trait and there is a lot of research that helps us understand it. Equal in gender, found in over 100 species and counting, this trait evolved as a survival strategy of the population.
People with this trait have extra information, a supercomputer brain, are more intuitive and empathic, and can read micro-expressions, body language, and energy shifts that 80% of the population miss.
There are even brain differences and many HSPs feel misunderstood and struggle with an overloaded nervous system which can create many challenges, such as anxiety, depression, overwhelm, high stress, and chronic health conditions.
Fortunately, with the right understanding of the sensitive nervous system and tools to support it, HSPs can reduce their challenges and get access to the many superpowers and gifts of this trait. HSPs care a lot about the world and are often some of the kindest, most compassionate, courteous, and conscientious people and usually the first to jump in to help someone. The gifts of this trait evolved for a reason and are needed in the world and HSPs are amazing healers, artists, educators, creators, and leaders, especially when they know how to optimize their superpowers!
HSPs are like Orchids when given the right set of conditions can bloom brilliantly in the world. Learning how to balance sensory sensitivities, practice the right type of self-care (different from 80%), learn to advocate, and honor needs can help optimize and bring out the amazing gifts of people with this trait.”
