Are You Highly Sensitive? Take The Test & Learn More

You are more than you know

A lot of HSPs don’t know they are highly sensitive and believe something is wrong with them that they feel so deeply and are so sensitive to the world around them. I love to inform and transform how HSPs are valued in society and how they value themselves.

Highly sensitives make excellent leaders and are called to help heal humanity and the planet through their own interests and creations, sharing what they know with the other 80% of the population.

There are at least 1.4 billion Highly Sensitive people in the world, that is around 20% of the population. You are not alone, misunderstood-yes.

Are you? Is someone close to you?

Below I share a self test, a list of famous highly sensitive people and other information I believe you’d like to know as well as other resources.  There is nothing wrong with you, you have superpowers to help humanity survive and thrive!

There is a great movie that will provide you with everything you need to know about HSP called SENSITIVE: THE MOVIE   that you can watch directly on the site. Just follow the link.

Personal experience has taught me that it is not merely important to learn about the nature of one’s sensitivity from books or movies, but also to learn through fellowship and friendship with others who are also highly sensitives. The sharing of life experience that comes with being Highly Sensitive can be as important as a teacher or any book.

This is what I want you to know:

  • Embrace your sensitive and creative traits as SuperPowers.
  • You are not alone and you are better than OK! There is nothing wrong with you!
  • You can create healthy boundaries and self-care, so you are not overwhelmed by the insensitive world and unconscious people.
  • You are here to make a difference in the world, your sensitivity allows you to organically have more information than non-HSP for better problem solving, innovation and leadership.
  • You can love ALL of yourself and live more truthfully, enjoying all the opportunities and experiences you can imagine.
  • You are a gifted individual and can use your SuperPowers to serve yourself and humanity.
  • You can be in healthy relationships personally and professionally.
