The Angels want HSPs to be aware of the main Soul challenges of the high sensitivity trait so that they can heal from their past wounding and awaken fully on a Soul level.
So what are the Top Ten Challenges that HSPs face?
1) A FEELING THAT THEY DON’T ‘BELONG’
For HSPs, this often starts with the family they incarnate through to. They may feel completely different, think,act and see the world differently to their families and as such are often seen as the ‘Outsider’ or termed as ‘Changelings’. This lack of belonging within their biological families’ taps into a deeper soul wound, which is feeling like they don’t belong here on Earth either. This planet can feel ‘alien’ to them. They remember on a soul level that they have left a place of pure love and the heavier, darker energy on this planet does not resonate with their vibrational energy and they miss ‘Home’.
2) DIFFICULT CHILDHOODS
Often childhood seems to be a very difficult or painful experience for most HSPs. Being bullied or being abused also appears to be a common experience for a great number of them.
3) BEING PSYCHIC SPONGES:
HSPs have deep levels of empathy and other people’s moods and emotions affect them greatly because they absorb them like psychic sponges. They can easily feel drained, overwhelmed or burnt out energetically. Negative environments, noise or being around large groups of people can also deplete their energy. Without protecting themselves energetically and psychically a state of Overarousal or feeling ‘frazzled’ occurs and HSPs need to withdraw or escape from the outside world until they release these energies and recharge themselves.
4) DEEP EMOTIONAL SENSITIVITY:
HSPs experience emotions or feelings to a much stronger or deeper extent than other people seem to. They particularly struggle with deep feelings of guilt, fear, hurt, loss and betrayal by others. They can feel wounded or devastated and easily shut off or close down when criticised, judged, cheated on, used or lied to.
5) SELF ESTEEM AND SELF WORTH ISSUES:
Many HSPs suffer with low self-esteem, low self-worth and a lack of confidence or feelings of not being ‘good enough’ because they feel or have felt so different. They struggle with self-love and have a tendency to care take, fix or rescue others, which is often an unconscious drive for their own unmet needs.
6) RELATIONSHIP STRUGGLES:
Many HSPs have a history of ‘failed’ relationships due to a partner not understanding their trait. In their early relationships they may wear a ‘false mask’, covering up who they really are in order to fit
in and not feel so different. As a result they can attract non sensitive partners who don’t understand them.
Friendships also can be a struggle for HSPs especially if they are the ‘caretakers’ or ‘listening ear’ to their friends. As they are natural ‘givers’ these friendships can often be one sided and when they require some support they rarely find it in those types of friendships.
7) HEALTH ISSUES:
HSPs are extremely sensitive to pain and may suffer with ‘energy’ disorders such as M.E, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia or Insomnia. As a result of being psychic sponges they can often manifest ‘dis-ease’ within the body, mainly in the areas that govern the corresponding chakras.
8) NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THEIR ‘SHADOW’:
HSPs have difficulty accepting or owning their ‘dark’ side and its role and purpose spiritually. They tend to suppress more ‘negative’ emotions such as anger, as it is seen to be unspiritual. The Soul memories of misusing their power in past lives and its consequences lie heavy in their soul wounding and therefore they struggle with empowerment in this lifetime. Guilt and shame are also heavy emotional residues that Sensitives still carry from those past lifetimes which is why there is often an unconscious need to make up for it through rescuing or saving others.
9) PARENTING THEIR PARENTS OR FAMILY MEMBERS:
Many HSPs have incarnated into families that have not yet opened to spiritual awareness and they often feel older and wiser than their parents on a spiritual level. Because of this they tend to parent them unconsciously in order to try and open them up from the ego based consciousness that they are often stuck in.
10) FEELING UNFULFILLED IF NOT LIVING THEIR PURPOSE:
Making a difference in this world is an inner drive that most HSPs have, yet many feel that they are in the wrong careers or are in a constant search for what they are ‘supposed to be doing’. Living their purpose is about being who they truly are and when they align with their authentic self, their Soul work reveals itself.
