Yes, I’m sensitive.
Of course I am, I’m comprised of energy. And so is everyone and everything else.
Energy is constantly flowing, engaging, interacting, and shifting.
As I move through life, the Energy of Life that is flowing through me, is encountering the Energy of Life that is all around, and that is in everything and everyone around me. As the energies interact, some of those energies feel good…and some do not. And, as a sensitive, I feel it when the energies interact, and it affects me when I’m engaging with energies that feel good and don’t feel good.
My energy is affected in these interactions. Sometimes a little, and sometimes a lot.
The problem isn’t with being sensitive.
Being sensitive is natural. Speaking the language of energy is the most innate, natural thing in the world. Energy was our first language, long before we learned to use words.
The problem isn’t that I feel the energies, it is that our culture does not recognize that that is what is happening, and so it doesn’t have healthy practices as related to our experience of processing energy and engaging responsibly and constructively with other energy.
Instead, we seek to dominate and control energy. (Which is madness, really.)
And so, when we engage with the energy of another and it doesn’t feel good, we use our brains to analyze and judge and blame and control. We seek to control the other, so that we can restore our inner equilibrium.
This is childish, and it keeps us endlessly cycling the energy of hierarchy, inequality, domination, and control, rather than addressing the root cause and managing our energy with integrity.
The Embodied Root Wholeness path offers a path of growing up, of managing our energy with integrity, of restoring our own wholeness and peace, regardless of what is happening on the outside.
When we know our how manage our energy with responsibility, when we know how to restore our own inner peace and wholeness without controlling another, we are free.
And so is everyone else around us.
