HSP

The Highly Sensitive Person

I am a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). That means that I have sensory processing sensitivity (SPS) which causes me to react more strongly than the average person to most types of stimuli. 


I believe that Biofield Balancing is particularly helpful for the HSP because of the deep state of relaxation that is achieved, providing much needed relief from sensory overstimulation.


The terms "HSP" and "SPS" were coined in the mid-1990s by psychologists Elaine Aron and her husband, Arthur Aron. The book, The Highly Sensitive Person, explains the personality trait in great detail. It is estimated to affect about 20 percent of the population. It is not the same as introversion, although there is often an overlap.


It's important to note that, in addition to challenges, there are benefits to having SPS, including feeling great empathy, valuing thoughtful reflection, and being comfortable with creative expression. I also believe that SPS contributes significantly to my ability to sense the energy of the biofield.


If you'd like to self-diagnose, the HSP website provides a simple questionnaire, as well as other interesting information.   


Being an HSP is not something that needs to be "fixed." It does not require counseling or other types of treatment. However, life will be much more comfortable for an HSP if certain conditions are met and disturbing stimuli are avoided. 


Navigating life as a Highly Sensitive Person is something I understand well. Perhaps you do, too. If so, you'll find sympathetic treatment with me.
