The 7 Superpowers of Sensitive Souls


The 7 Superpowers of Sensitive Souls

Do you know that sensitive souls have super powers?

I’m a superhero.

Like most superheroes, I’ve learned to keep my powers hidden and quiet. Only those closest to me know. And like most superheroes, I grew up thinking I was fundamentally flawed because of my powers. Of course, before I realized the superhero thing, I didn’t consider them “powers” nor did I see them as positive. I considered them weird quirks that isolated me from everyone else and I saw them as a curse.

I Was Born With A Soul That is Way Too Sensitive
The 7 Superpowers of Sensitive Souls

Having found my way through the darkness of the proverbial innermost cave of the hero’s journey, I now know better. I’ve returned with the elixir and, as Joseph Campbell‘s myth would have it, things are not the same. Now I know there are others like me, many of whom are still hiding their powers—even from themselves—and still thinking they’re flawed.

To the sensitive souls, who are still struggling, quivering alone outside the cave wondering if they’re worthy enough to go in, here are seven ways your cursed quirks are more like blessed superpowers.

May these give you the courage to explore your own innermost cave and see for yourself not only how powerful you truly are, but also the impact you can have on others, once you learn to use your superpowers for good.

The 7 Superpowers of Sensitive Souls

Here’re 7 Superpowers of Sensitive Souls

1. You have an emotional X-ray vision.

Like Superman, with his ability to see through walls, you can see through someone’s Crest-white-strip-smile, underneath their bubbly facade, seeing their sadness and longing. Thoreau’s quote: “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” is inaccurate for you. There’s nothing quiet about other people’s desperation. Sensitive souls see it loud and clear. Because of this, you can cut through pretenses and show kindness and empathy toward those desperately needing it.

2. You are an emotional absorber.

Along with seeing someone’s hidden sadness, you often feel it as if it were your own. You walk down a crowded street and as people pass by, their energy passes through you and you suddenly feel their joy, sadness, anger, loneliness, or anything else they may be feeling. Because of this, you can take in their pain, transmute it and return it to them purified with love and strength. You can learn how to do this without being negatively affected by it and use it to empower yourself and others.

3. You are a human lie detector.

You have a built-in bullsh*t meter and you can tell when someone’s lying. You might not be able to explain it and often can’t prove it, but you know it. Something just feels off. Like Spiderman, with his “Spidey sense” when danger approaches, sensitive souls can sense a bullsh*t artist before he even opens his mouth. Because of this, you can avoid certain people and situations before they become major problems for you.

4. You can see into the future.

You may or may not be a full-on psychic, but you often have a sense of what’s about to happen before it happens. You think of someone and in that instant, the phone rings and it’s them. Or you wake up with a tight knot in your stomach and then something bad happens to you or someone you love that day. Or you have a dream that comes true months later. Because of this, you can bend time, soften outcomes and prepare for things in advance.

5. You have a holographic perspective.

Unlike a photograph, which can only be viewed from one side, a hologram can be seen from all angles. Sensitive souls not only see circumstances and situations from multiple angles, but you also have the ability to see other people’s perspectives—even if you don’t agree—and keep your mind open to any possibilities. Because of this, you are able to perceive others’ points of view and understand why they do what they do, bringing a sense of calm, compassion, and mediation to conflict.

6. You have heightened energy sensors.

Sensitive souls can walk into a room and feel the denseness of an argument that happened there moments before. Or you meet someone for the first time and have the urge to run away from them. You feel the energy of places, people, objects, and nature so strong that sometimes it shocks you that others don’t feel it. Because of this, you can put yourself in situations and locations that best serve you or remove yourself from those that don’t. You can mold your environment to suit your needs by harnessing energies that make you stronger, rather than mold yourself to suit the environment and diminishing your energy.

7. You are multi-dimensionally conscious.

You are aware of dimensions beyond the physical time/space continuum and while you may walk, talk and carry on your daily life going through the motions of a physical being, a big part of your lives in an untouchable, unexplainable realm that you inherently know is more real than the reality beyond the five senses. Because of this, you are able to create inspired works of art—through music, words, architecture, paintings or any creative medium—that reach deep inside people and touch parts of them longing to awaken. You have wisdom that exceeds your years of experience on Earth and, when tragic things happen, that drop others to their knees, you have an inner strength and knowing that keeps you standing. Even when you fall—and you often do—you get back up. And then you carry on and help others up.

Because that’s what superheroes do.

And that’s what we are.

We’re superheroes. And these are our superpowers.

No, You Are Not “Overly Sensitive”

No You Are Not Overly Sensitive

Has anyone told you that you are too sensitive, or that you overreact sometimes? Well, you are not too sensitive and sensitivity has more benefits than you'd realize.

Well, everyone has their own reactions. Some of us are more sensitive than others. There is nothing wrong with the skill you’re born with. Being sensitive and empathetic is a blessing rather than a curse.

I’m happy to share this selection from Thriving as an Empath with you: Many of us have received messages from parents, teachers, friends, or the media that being sensitive is a fault or weakness.

It’s important to gently re-evaluate old ideas about yourself such as “Im too sensitive,” “Th

The Gifts of Being An Empath

Do you feel that emotional strength is a gift? If yes, then being an empath is surely a blessing. To be able to feel and care for everyone and everything, it's a very special thing to be chosen for.

The empaths journey is the adventure of a lifetime. Sensitive people have much to be grateful for. You are able to experience exquisite passion and joy.

Dealing With Highly Aggressive People: 7 Non-Conflicted Ways

Dealing With High Conflict People

Aggressive people are always coping with issues within themselves. Their aggression, rage, and abusive behavior are driven primarily by unconscious defensiveness. Managing high conflict people can be very difficult. Especially if you're in a relationship with one, it gets really tough to resolve issues with your high conflict partner. Here are some 7 tips for dealing with aggressive people.

Individuals who are aggressive thrive on provoking and escalating conflict. They’re usually domineering and try to control the conversation. They’re distrustful, reactive, highly defensive, intense, dogmatic, and often, though not always, loud. They’re not open to alternative points of view but are more invested in enhancing their power at your expense than listening to your point of view or even considering the facts.

They feel right and blameles

How To Make Smart Decisions Intuitively

How To Make Smart Decisions Intuitively

Using intuition to make a decision can be tricky for analytical people. In rational decision-making, the need for practical and logical arguments and careful analysis come high in priority. But intuitive decision making relies on unconscious intelligence created from past experiences and learning which makes it the key component of effective and smart decisions.

As an intuitive psychiatrist, I worship my high octane intuitions. I owe the blessing of becoming a physician to one. However, at twenty, when an unwavering inner voice told me I was going to medical school, it was the last thing I thought I wanted.

This gut-centered voice committed to your happiness, health, and survival, is, with practice, accessible to everyone. But when you deviate even a nano-fraction from your inner voice, energy wanes, whether a subtle seepage or radical bottoming

5 Scientific Explanations of Empathy and Empaths

Explanations of Empathy and Empaths

Empathy plays a critical role, providing an emotional bridge between individuals, but the concept of empathy is still a mystery. However, experts have now recognized empathy and empaths as legitimate in the factual world with scientific explanations. The science of empathy says there are specific regions in our brain that are associated with empathetic behavior.

As a psychiatrist and an empath, I am fascinated by how the phenomenon of empathy works. I feel passionate that empathy is the medicine the world needs right now.

Empathy is when we reach our hearts out to others and put ourselves in their shoes. However, being an empath goes even further. Like many of my patients and myself, empaths are people who’re high on the empathic spectrum and actually feel what is happening in others in their own bodies.
