Discovering Your Life

HSP’s or Highly Sensitive Person: What does it mean to be a HSP? What does it mean to have psychic abilities? There are many definitions online and in literature, but here is my version. HSP’s feel things on a much deeper level and can be hugely affected by people, energies, environments, events, animals, other’s emotions on a physical, emotional, and psychological level.
People with psychic abilities are said to have one foot in the veil of the living and the other in the land of the dead- receiving messages from spirit, spirit guides, animals, elementals through voice, pictures, touch, feeling impressions, dreams, visions, etc.
HSP’s and people with psychic abilities tend to work in various professions identified as helpers, spiritual healers- shamans, mediums, counselors/therapists, yogis, empaths, witches, wiccans, energy healers, artists, musicians, creatives. These people were given a gift that seems impossible to the logical mind. It can be scary, confusing, and chaotic knowing that you have abilities that other’s don’t without many options of support and guidance to help you process, heal, understand, cope, protect, and develop your abilities.
With these abilities comes consequences like anything else when they are ignored and repressed including but not limited to symptoms experienced as anxiety, depression, intense mood swings, anger, confusion, fear, phobias, panic attacks, insomnia, night terrors, auditory and visual hallucinations, headaches, hearing problems, stomach and digestive issues, unexplained health problems, heart problems, and chronic pain.
It may feel like no one could possibly understand you and your experience, but I do. You are not alone. What if someone could understand what you experience and for once you don’t feel crazy or misunderstood, but you feel validated in a safe environment where you can discover your authentic self, heal and transform from past trauma, and uncover your purpose in this life. I invite you to explore and discover your life with me. The magic and possibilities that can be discovered within you are endless.

I always had a fascination with what seems impossible to the logical mind. I have always felt different than others, like I had some deep understanding and inner wisdom about life that I became aware of at a young age that not many others seemed to possess. I tended to feel things much more deeply, had paranormal experiences, an interest in fairies and elves, witches, spirits, energy, the soul, past lives, and the power of the mind.
I am a highly sensitive person or HSP. I am an empath, I am a witch full of light and magic, I am a starseed, A spiritual warrior and healer. I have a deep connection with nature and animals. My intuition is fiercely strong. I am drawn to crystals. I have had clairaudient abilities at a time in my life. I think like a shaman when it comes to the soul and it’s journey- incorporating mother nature, it’s creatures, elementals, and our spirit guides. With all of this said, do you think you might be a highly sensitive person? Do you feel emotions deeply, feel others thoughts or emotions before they tell you? Can you see, feel, or hear spirit? Are you drawn to alchemy and the metaphysical? If so, you may be an HSP!
We have been programmed by society for our logical mind to have the main perspective in life. The problem is, seeing through the logical lens keeps us in a limited and narrow view of the world. A logical view is only one of many. What if you could see and be open to even more views? HSP’s are those that question what is logical, they see more to every story or at least question what seems logical. We are in an age of universal awakening. More and more people are questioning the reality we live in. We are waking up as a society to not believe everything we hear. We are circling back to ancient ways of thinking- that we are all connected as people, with the earth, with animals, with the celestial bodies, with all the wisdom that has ever existed. We have begun to tap into the source of existence through meditation, yoga, intuition, energy, spirits, crystals, animals, ancient teachings, shamanism, listening to our bodies, and staying curious. The world is changing, calling upon us to be authentic beings of light- to connect and heal, to find our own answers through guidance, self-discovery, and self-care. If you have been questioning society’s limitations and governmental influence; feeling like you need to get more in touch with like-minded people/ending toxic relationships; connecting with nature and animals- you are becoming more awake!
