Is Your Extreme Sensitivity Covering Up Something Deeper?
Are you extremely sensitive to the needs and opinions of others? Are you good at anticipating how others will take you, often adjusting your behavior depending on who is around?
As a spiritually conscious woman, you are likely very sensitive to the needs and opinions of others, it is probably a very normal part of who you are. While this may appear to be a wonderful trait from the outside, I’d like to point out a deeper aspect that you may not be aware of.
The deeper aspect of this wonderful trait may actually be causing you to hide your true light and keeping you small when the deeper part of you wants to shine.
Have you ever stopped to wonder why you were so sensitive to others opinions and judgments? Why you were so good at anticipating others needs and reactions?
Think about it, just how many people around you are sensitive to you in this way?
And, would you ever expect them to be? Or would you just want them to be themselves?
In the Intuitive Healing work I have done for myself and with my clients I have come to see that there is a deeper cause of this over-sensitivity. And that there is a very damaging dynamic underlying it that could be causing you to hold back the very light you came here to shine to the world.
The Deeper Cause of Over-Sensitivity is the Fear of Rejection
I have found it to be very common that spiritually conscious women have had past lives where they were rejected in a major way for being their true selves. I’ve seen it countless times for myself too. I’ve seen it too many times to just ignore it. I’ve come to accept that it’s actually a very common problem that needs to be dealt with so you can be truly free to be the light you know you’re meant to be.
Here’s how it works:
Deep down in your being you remember what happened when you were being yourself, you remember how you were rejected or punished for being who you really were. And along with that memory comes fierce self-protection.
You will never let yourself experience that pain again, and just how did you make sure of it?
You became super-sensitive to others. You became good at hiding your light at any threat of judgment or danger.
These deeply buried past life memories of rejection cause you to adjust your behavior and how you portray yourself to the world to be dimmed down or not authentic so you do not get rejected as you were in the past.
Being super-sensitive to others reactions and opinions is your way of making sure you are being acceptable so you don’t get hurt.
Can you feel deep down how this may be true for you?
I have always been extremely sensitive to how others saw me, but what I now realize was underlying this extreme sensitivity was the need to be accepted. And looking back I now see how clearly being accepted was higher up on my list of priorities than being my true self as I look back. I chose an acceptable career of Mechanical Engineering which was fine but only a quarter of who I really was. I put a happy face to the world and tried to make other people happy, often at the cost of my own happiness.
Does this resonate?
Thankfully I changed this. And now my number one value is authenticity and because of it my life is a true reflection of Who I Really Am, inside and out.
If I hadn’t changed this old dynamic I would not be here writing to you right now. I want you to know that you can change it too. This dynamic is out of balance and it’s time to bring it back into balance.
Start now by stopping yourself when you notice you’re coming from that super-sensitive state.
Stop and ask yourself some questions: What am I afraid of here? How am I denying my true self in this moment? Can I see how I may be trying to protect myself, even if it doesn’t make logical sense?
And know that with this new clarity, you are free to make a new choice. You really are meant to shine, and this over-sensitivity and deep fear of rejection has got to go. It’s an old energy rooted in a dark time. It’s time to step up and choose your light over your fear.
Being grounded in the light of who you really are is where you belong. And when you are grounded in your truth you also give permission for others to be the same… Are you with me?
