What Wonder Woman Taught Me About Being An Empath

By Heidi Jane | Spirituality

Like most women my age, I grew up with the awe-inspiring archetype of Wonder Woman.

I remember as a child feeling enamored and drawn to that character, a strong, powerful, magical woman, who was here to save the world.

In a sea of male Superheroes, she held her own, she stood her ground, she was sensitive and compassionate, she paved the way unapologetic and determined. Wonder Woman helped me to relate to myself as different, as at that point I didn’t know that I was an Empath; I just knew there was something ‘not the same’ about me.

Health Issues for Highly Sensitive People

By Heidi Jane | Spirituality

In the fast-paced world in which we live, even the sturdiest people can face health issues. It stands to reason, then, that people who classify themselves as highly sensitive, or who identify themselves as Empaths, can struggle even more. It is now widely recognized by scientists, doctors, psychologists, and other healthcare practitioners that stress and toxicity in the body can lead to a whole host of health challenges, potentially leading to disease.

For the average person living life in a highly populated city, stress and toxicity abound, from food, water, and air quality to family obligations and a stressful work environment! Add to this the emotional, mental, and sometimes spiritual toxicity that people also have to deal with, and you start to get the picture of why so many highly sensitive people struggle with their health, as we Empaths feel these toxic inputs at a much increased level.

Why Highly Sensitive People Find It hard To Stay Present?

By Heidi Jane | Spirituality

Grounding is the concept of having your consciousness fully engaged within your mental, emotional, and physical body. If you are a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) or an Empath, being present in the physical world is about the most important thing you can do to improve your quality of life. If you are ungrounded or reactive to your surroundings, you will be less effective at managing the increased information you receive every single day. This can lead to over-stimulation and hyper-sensitivity, which results in a reactive and defensive state of being. That’s simply no fun for anyone.

Being Highly Sensitive in a Violent World

By Heidi Jane | Spirituality

If you identify yourself as being a highly sensitive person (HSP) or an Empath, then the current energetic climate is probably pretty terrible for you. What you may experience is a growing sense of impending . . . well, that something really, really bad is about to happen. You probably can’t quite put your finger on why you feel the way you do, and you may have thought more than once, ‘Am I going crazy?’ or ‘What the hell is wrong with me?’

On Being An Empath

By Heidi Jane | Spirituality

If you often feel over-sensitive, highly emotional, and exceptionally intuitive, then you may just be an Empath.

For many of us living with heightened sensitivities, emotional acuity, and deep intuition, we struggle to find the relevance, meaning, and acknowledgment we so deeply yearn for. Instead we are often met with comments such as “You’re so sensitive!” or “Just toughen up!” or “Stop crying!” For those of us born as a Highly Sensitive Person, that’s far easier said than done. The consequences of other people’s opinions often mean that we internalize or feel shame, or we try to hide our baffling emotions and the intense sensations we experience.
