“Imagine a rosebud with its petals closed over a glowing heart, filled with passionate feelings, but not yet showing itself in its full beauty, not until the blossom opens. It remains closed by doubt. How does self-doubt affect your life? Do you express your feelings openly, or do you hide, like the heart in the rosebud?”
Our greatest talents might be living in our shadowside. In the things we don’t accept or don’t believe to be true. In the things we are fearful of, in the things that make us shy away…
Maybe it might be a talent that you have been hiding from others, afraid of openly showing, because people might laugh at you, judge you or point fingers at you… but it is still slumbering…
It might be something that looks so fearful that you are afraid to look at it ! Every time it crosses your mind it reminds you of past failure or hurt, or you get a feeling of : “It was never meant to be !” You say : “No, go away, leave me alone !” But it is still lurking…
We ignore these parts. We try to hide them so no one can see them and then it becomes fear, guilt, shame ! But the feelings keep growing…
“More light and light, more dark and dark our woes”
Romeo, Romeo & Juliet, Shakespeare
I guess that Shakespeare was an HSP too ! In my darkest moments I have often wished I wasn’t born that sensitive, feeling everything that deeply. It made my life at times a roller coaster of many ups & downs. As an HSP you often have the impression that you are constantly chased by the dark, not capable of spreading your own light.
What you have to realize is that you came into this world with great intuitive powers, but “With great power comes great responsability” , isn’t ?
What bothers you most as highly sensitive person, can become your biggest asset, but you must “turn around” first to develop your super powers !
Turnaround from sympathy to empathy
Because of your sensitive nature you often absorb the energy of other people, you are an emotional sponge sucking in all their negative energy ! Shield yourself from all psychic attacks. Protect your energy ! Read more : Psychic protection
Ground yourself and do some physcial exercices to get rid of excessive energies.
Turnaround from ‘thinking from the head’ to ‘thinking from the heart’
Your greatest power lies in the wisdom of the heart, but the heart often speaks a language we have forgotten. Read more : Creative living
Your actions will be more productive when they match the intentions of the heart. That’s when your actions become transformative and have the power to instigate others positively !
Are you really thinking your own thoughts ? It is important to know which energy is yours. Whatever seems to cross your mind, be conscious of it and ask yourself : “Where did that come from ?” What is its source : Love or fear ?” Focus on what matters !
Turnaround from weakness to strength
When you are around people, does “the presence” (the energy) make you go weak or make you go strong ?
Pauze a few seconds before you react. Imagine yourself being in the center of an eight, the infinity symbol. the left side of the eight is the stimulus, the right side is the response.
You are in the middle and you start circling love into the eight. Just let a bright light circulate into both circles from where you are standing, from this zero point.
This eight can be a quick reminder to build in a pauze before you speak and to not react from an unbalanced state, a negative emotional state such as fear, anger or frustration.
It is also a good visualization exercice when you want to send loving energy to a person or situation that needs healing or that is bothering you. Imagine yourself being in the right circle and the person that needs healing being in the left one. Each time you pass the middle, more healing light is brought into both circles !
Turnaround from self-criticism to self-love
Stop all self-criticism and judgment and start accepting yourself with all your flaws and imperfections ! Turn around statements such as :”I am not enough, I am not capable, I am not worth it” Love is the absence of judgment
Turnaround from ‘shying away’ to ‘opening up’
Open up ! Let go of all these doubts and fears, they only make you close your heart even further. You can only show your full beauty, when you put off your mask and give expression to your true feelings !
Share your feelings and ideas in an honest way and inspire others to do the same. Use your words to uplift people instead of breaking them down.
“Be like a rose, though it is silent, it speaks in the language of fragrance.”
“Turn around and I will show you something
Turn around and you will see
Life is a roundabout
A kind of LSD
Turn around, have faith in all the changes
Turn around and you will feel
No age of loneliness
You are a part of me”
Phuro! Be inspired!
