Three Tips to Move Toward Empowered Sensitivity

By now, almost everyone has heard the term “Highly Sensitive Person”. I have to admit, I bristle when I hear that term. Everything I read about HSPs seems to focus on how it is that we can adapt ourselves to the ‘normal’ world. I’m sure I’ve missed a lot there, but part of our sensitivity is learning about our true yes’s and no’s ~ and for me, 98% of the stuff I read on HSP is a ‘no’. What seems clear to me is that the world has not yet embraced the gifts that sensitive people can bring to the party. Remarkably though, many of the insights sensitive people glean from our...

Embodied Heart Support Group

Let’s come together for support! It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world out there; CAN YOU FEEL IT? Of course you can! You are sensitive. Allow yourself to get in a rhythm of self care with a weekly support group. This group for sensitive women will provide the healing container for you to finally begin to breathe into trusting life. Ongoing group begins Wednesday, September 7th. When I say I’ve been on the long road of healing, I mean it in a bit of a different context than others mean it.

Soft IS Strong…

“There’s nothing more important on our spiritual path than developing gentleness to oneself.”   -Pema Chodron I once had a few dates with a woman who was trying to understand the work I do. “So what does it actually do in the end?” she asked. “I guess I teach people to be gentle with themselves” is what I came up with. She had a very hard time understanding this. She didn’t exactly see the value in this. She reported that she was gentle with herself and would not need help to get there.

Waking Up

“Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep.” ~ Fran Drescher I used to be absolutely and undeniably obsessed with trying to get people to wake up. “Be present with your heart!” I would whisper to them as they slept. “Know that you are loved. You are here to play. It’s okay be yourself. Trust the things that happen in your life. God is love. YOU are love. You are divinely guided. Trust your body. Trust your emotions. Trust yourself. Trust life.” What felt true in my system back then was that I was awake. And that they were asleep. It...

Nourishment

“Do Not Put Those Unwanted Ingredients in Your Pie.” Abraham Hicks I had a very disturbing experience at Newark Airport yesterday. I went to a restaurant where you were exclusively ‘served’ via an iPad. There were some actual human servers around to bring your food, but no one interacted with anyone. No eye contact, no greeting, no friendliness, NO CONNECTION. You ordered your food and paid on the iPad with your credit card. It was the weirdest thing ever! I hated it!!!!! Is this a thing??????????? Oh, and unbeknownst to me, they automatically added on a 20% tip for the...
