Your new superpowerDec 06, 2021
Have you ever wondered if you are highly sensitive or empathic?
This means you are affected by the environments and emotions around you in a bigger way than some people.
Tough conversations, making changes, and fear of disappointing others are challenging when you are highly sensitive or empathic.
Here are signs you might be highly sensitive or empathic.
1. Have you ever felt a strong emotion (excited, anxious, anger, sadness, etc) and then the environment changed and the feeling went away?
2. Ever walk into a room feeling fine and then realize you suddenly feel terrible? Grumpy, tired, or even sick? And you're not sure why?
3. Do you ever find yourself saying things that surprise you? Things you'd NEVER say on purpose but you see they make the person you are with respond in a positive way? You wonder... "why did I know to say *that*?"
4. Is holding boundaries really hard for you? Do you set the boundary, then back down or change the boundary when the other person gets upset?
If you said "yes" to any of those things - there is a chance you are an empath or highly sensitive. This means that not only are you aware of how people feel... you also feel what people feel.
If you are empathic or highly sensitive you NEED my daily checklist. Click here to grab yours for FREE.
You might be an empath if you are not only aware of how people feel, but feel what they feel.
It's a superpower of sorts! But it can be hard to manage.
You'll want some tools you can use so that you don't have to actually feel everything around you. Don't worry, you'll still be know how people feel, but not feeling it means you can set better boundaries, think more clearly and ease anxiety.
The tool I'm going to give you today is so simple you can carry this into every area of your life.
This is going to be life-changing. When you learn a few simple tools you can use your sensitivity as a superpower.
First - in last week's blog I talked about how important it is to zip up. If you haven't checked that out, be sure you take a look. Click here to go to that post.
Zipping up is always step 1. You'll want to zip up every day and possibly more than once per day.
Next - You'll learn which is YOUR feeling (physical or emotional) and which belongs to someone else.
Muscle testing works because your body knows things your conscious mind may not. Your body is connected to your subconscious and holds a ton of information. We want to bring that information forward.
Stand on two feet with your weight balanced. Your feet should be a comfortable width apart.
Place your arms by your sides, letting them hang.
Start by setting a baseline to make sure you are getting good information (and to see that this really works)
Say outloud or in your mind, "My name is [your name]".
Your body will tip gently forward. This is your body saying "Yes!! That's right!".
Say outloud or in your mind something that is absolutley not true. "My name is [your best friend's]".
Your body will gently tip backward. Don't worry, you're not going to fall. This is your body's way of saying, "Nope. Not true!"
Your body will never lie. Try it now!!
From now on, your job is to use muscle testing to determine which stuff is really your feeling and which isn't.
As am empath or highly senistive person, this is going to be a game-changer for you. You'll clear on what's yours.
And when you zip up AND use muscle testing you'll learn to be much less fearful of disappointing someone because you won't have double emotions; yours AND theirs.
