Are you a Sensitive, Deep-Feeler (SDF) who views their high sensitivity more like a curse and less like a gift? The intense emotions, overwhelm, over-stimulation, overthinking, being told to “toughen up,” and constantly wondering what’s “wrong” with you can get really exhausting.
We live in a world that values extroversion, striving, and speed, and often doesn’t appreciate qualities like sensitivity, emotional intelligence, and empathy. It’s no surprise that so many of us feel overwhelmed, burnt out, ashamed, and defeated.
Some really great news: “Sensitivity” isn’t actually a problem…High sensitivity is simply greater access to the subtle aspects of life, and when we see it for what it truly is, everything changes.
Let’s explore some myths around High Sensitivity, and discover exactly what to do to unleash your hidden superpower!
The Power: Decoding High Sensitivity Through Nature’s Lens
Picture a feather. Delicate and responsive, it illustrates high sensitivity. As a highly sensitive person, you are akin to the feather, acutely aware of the slightest whisper of air, which might go unnoticed by others. Each gust of wind, every sound, the play of light, and a myriad of emotions seem to reach into your core.
This feather symbolizes the elements of air and ether or “Vata” in Ayurvedic terms. Ayurveda, a treasure trove of ancient Indian wisdom on holistic health, relates well-being to the natural elements and their rhythms. It encompasses five elements – earth, water, fire, air, and ether (space) – that blend into three fundamental energies or “doshas”: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
Vata, the fusion of air and ether, is akin to the feather, and high sensitivity. An abundance of these elements makes the feather (or your sensitive nature) move easily with the subtle forces all around us. This abundance is what makes highly sensitive people so receptive to stimuli, akin to a feather dancing in the breeze.
This heightened sensitivity may be innate and/or it may develop over time due to the compounding stress and traumas of contemporary life. Without understanding this dimension of our nature, it’s challenging to offer it the support it needs, turning high sensitivity into an overwhelming experience.
Understanding high sensitivity through the metaphor of feathers and relating it to Vata helps you appreciate it as a natural aspect of life that needs distinct nurturing.
Through the lens of nature, high sensitivity becomes less of a burden and more of an empowering attribute; a conduit for profound connections and perceptions. It is an embrace of your belonging in this world, a graceful dance to timeless melodies.
You are part of a splendid spectrum in human nature that reverberates with the rhythms of the natural world.
