High sensitivity is our potential

The term high sensitivity is ascribed to people who are very sensitive and perceptive. It denotes an increased:

  • Sensitivity in the interpersonal sphere
  • Heightened sense activity even to the point of clairvoyance
  • Sensitivity to electro-smog or substances in the sense of allergens
  • The need to experience one’s own actions (High Sensation Seekers)

Highly sensitive people are characterized by passion, creativity, thinking in larger contexts, a multi-faceted perception of complex relationships, accuracy, high body awareness, sense of style, empathy, selflessness, humor, a forward-looking consciousness and commitment to their beliefs.

On the other hand, their increased sensitivity and perception may cause stress symptoms that severely restrict daily life. Extensive literature, web links, self-help groups and therapy offers exist. Whether, and to what degree, you are highly-sensitive, you can, for example, test here:

That would be like wishing to become more unaware so as not to have to face the world's problems. We would rather know how to solve them!

 Sensitivity is something worth striving for! But we need:

  • The possibility to process the experiences
  • Protective mechanisms that reduce the intensity of the impressions, but not the information contained in them.
  • Inner spaces in which we can look at our experiences in peace, understand them and then react to them.

When we achieve that, we can say:

High sensitivity is the future. And the highly sensitive are preparing it!
