Did you know, that according to Dr. Judith Orloff, in her book on empathy, empathetic people have “an extremely reactive neurological system. We don’t have the same filters that other people do to block out stimulation. As a consequence, we absorb into our own bodies both the positive and stressful energies around us….We are truly super responders….high sensitivity affects approximately 20% of the population, though the degree of sensitivity can vary.” I am part of that 20%, how about you?

Its way fed me all that I needed because, Heaven knows, being an intuitive, Indigenous, shamanic empathetic person brought social isolation, rejection and bullying. I didn’t realize that my acute sensitivity was different from others until my late 20’s.
An empathetic person tends to be looking for something but doesn’t quite know what. When you meet the Language of the Soul and hear about Universal Laws something in you awakens. But where to find it? What are you unknowingly looking for exactly?
You are searching for your fundamental moral education about the Divine Feminine Within. It was removed from your curriculum approximately 5,000 years ago except for the Indigenous Peoples who saw all of Life as Sacred. The traditional teachings hold intuitive training within them. One level of the teachings within the Medicine Wheel, for example, explains that there are four quadrants to living: physical, mental,
