12 Signs You Are a Highly Sensitive Person

Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled.” ~ Anthon St. Maarten

Signs of a Highly Sensitive Person

If you ask me, being a Highly Sensitive Person is one of the most amazing things in the whole wide world. And that’s mostly because of the many extraordinary things you feel, and the many amazing things you can do for the whole world as a result of the many gifts and superpowers you possess. And today I will share with you 12 clear signs you are a Highly Sensitive Person in the hope that they will remind you of how amazing you truly are and how much this world needs you to be YOU.

1. You feel things. Big time.

A clear sign that you are a highly sensitive person is that you feel things the majority of people don’t; things that are mysterious and beyond human comprehension. And even though you can’t explain them with words, to you, they make perfect sense.

2. When other people suffer, you feel their pain

Your heart is one with the hearts of all people. And one of your fellow human beings suffers, you feel their pain as if it were your own. 

3. You are highly intuitive

You have a strong sense of intuition and you know things the majority people don’t. You don’t know how, and why, but you just do.

4. You have a strong sense of oneness

You are a Highly Sensitive Person if, in spite of the fact that the world acts as if we are all separate from one another, you Know for sure that at the core level we are essentially the same, all members of one human race.

You Know that at the core level we are all ONE, connected with one another in a very deep and powerful way. And that there is no separation except the separation we create in our minds because of our attachment to fear.

5. You see into the souls of people

You are a Highly Sensitive Person if you can see into the souls of others and you can feel how they feel deep down inside – not how they want the world to think they feel, but how they truly feel.

You can feel the emptiness, the sadness, and the feelings of abandonment many of them feel as a result of the many choices they’ve made against themselves, and against their Truth. 

6. You have a strong presence

You have a very strong presence and when you walk into a room, your energy is felt and your presence immediately noticed.

7. You have the power to purify things

You have this incredible ability to purify and cleanse the places you go to. And when you interact with people, they feel better just by being in your presence. You make the sad people feel less sad and the unhappy people become happy again. 

8. You are not afraid of darkness

Unlike most people, you don’t run away from the darkness. On the contrary. You go bravely in the direction of the things that frighten you.

You know that darkness has no power of its own and that the only power it has, is the one we give to it.

9. Your innocence is that of a child

You have a pure heart and your spirit is childlike. Your innocence is that of a child and whether you realize this or not, this is where your power comes from. 

10. You have a deep spiritual connection with Mother Earth

You have a strong spiritual connection with Mother Earth, and you understand that the imbalances present in nature are a reflection of the imbalances present within our own human nature. You know that we are all part of nature and that nature is part of us.

11. Your love encompasses everything, and everyone

Your love encompasses everything and everyone making its presence felt in the hearts of all those who are ready to receive it.

It shines like the Sun, and without discriminating, it brings joy to both the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly.

12. You have a strong connection with Divinity

You have a strong connection with Divinity and that’s mostly because you Know that the Source of all things is Within our own hearts and souls, and not somewhere Out there as most people like to believe. Thus, you treasure your Divinity as much as you treasure yourself and the whole world.
