Are you someone who feels emotions deeply, and can’t hide this?  Do you feel the suffering of others?  Have people told you, ‘You’re just too sensitive, let it go!’

If so, perhaps you are one of the 20% of humans who fit the sensitive temperament profile now accepted by mainstream psychology.

Research shows that the brains of this 20% of Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) are different from those of other people.  Yet this is far from general knowledge yet.  It certainly hasn’t reached the average household.

So, millions of HSPs have had probably a lifetime of hurts and criticisms from people around them, often including their families, because of their sensitive reactions.

What can you do?

The upside of being an HSP is extraordinary sensitivity to beauty and spirituality, being intuitive, and having a desire to look after our planet. But years of being judged from a standpoint of ‘You take things too hard’ can result in HSPs believing that there must be something wrong with them. This can escalate into their feeling alienated, overwhelmed, and withholding their talents.

When HSPs decide to start healing their unresolved emotional pain and stresses, more and more are turning to the leading-edge Energy Psychology modality called Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT tapping.

This is an acupressure-and-mindfulness system that is both self help and practitioner-assisted.  More than 100 peer-reviewed clinical trials demonstrate EFT’s efficacy and unusual speed in defusing stress.

People easily learn safe, simple acupressure techniques for immediate self help in emotional situations.  You can easily move from anger or hurt or anxiety to calm in minutes, clearing emotional turmoil out of your system instead of stockpiling it as we have all had to do up to now.

Friends don’t tell you how

Friends may be free with their well-meaning advice to ‘Let it go’, but they seldom give effective advice on how to do that.  EFT empowers HSPs in everyday living.

However, problems at trauma level need the expertise of EFT practitioners. EFT’s gentle and fast trauma-clearing methods are acknowledged by the UK National Health System, the American Psychological Association, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (for clearing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder for war veterans.)

Two helpful books for HSPs are:

  • ‘EFT for the Highly Sensitive Temperament’ by Rue Hass
  • ‘The Highly Sensitive Person’ by Elaine Aron Ph.D.
