So if you’re wondering if you’re a highly sensitive person, here is a quick and easy 60-second quiz. Take it now:
- Are you highly affected by the moods of others?
- Are you easily rattled by having a lot thrown at you?
- Are you aware of subtle changes made to your home, work or creative environment?
- Do you often need alone time away from stimulus, sounds, and other people?
- Do you feel that you process situations on a deeper level?
- Do you have a sound awareness of your thoughts and physical sensations?
If you answered most of these questions with a quick and resounding YES, you’re most likely a highly sensitive person. Good news and bad news—you have a special skill, but it is one that you will have to protect over time. Surprised by your quiz results? Many think that highly sensitive people are all loners, introverts, possibly neurotic with self-esteem issues. This is simply not true.
Being highly sensitive doesn’t make you crazy, but it can make you a powerful empath with highly tuned intuition. Highly sensitive people are often the heart-felt bohemians, tender dream-makers, soulful leaders, intuitive teachers or amazing parents, just to name a few.
So stop holding back! Keep harnessing and grooming this power, give yourself permission to move, create and engage in life intuitively—-and with your entire body. You can be a highly sensitive person with planted feet, a heart of fire and a head of hair full of wild wind. Unleash your magic!
