A Sensitive’s Need for Space

asensitiveneedforspace

I don’t always know my limits.

I try to be extroverted, on the go, social, always available, but I have a sensitive system that I often curse. I push way past my limits in order to be like everyone else, and my body always reacts in some way to let me know.

I need space to recoup and regroup. It’s a fundamental need. As a sensitive person I process things slowly and deeply. I don’t just process the surface but the multi-level happenings underneath, so there is much to sift through. My mind is like a giant computer picking up data left and right and making connections. Then I need time to download, digest, and understand. I need quiet space where I only hear me and my thoughts, only feel me and my feelings, not the whole world around me, or I will get lost.

It’s hard to explain to others. You feel like a freak, different, flawed in some way, but you are just differently wired…maybe with an advanced computer inside.

Yes, it’s a pain in the ass to explain to others.

I have had in-laws who never understood and felt rejected. How could they when they are wired their way and don’t know there is another way to be?

I identified the bigger problem. It’s communicating my limits calmly and with strength to others. “I have hit my limit!” But, if I don’t acknowledge my limits, I have a problem. There is a problem with me and acceptance. Deep deep down, I don’t want a sensitive body. Maybe it’s just having a body. How many times have I dove into a project on the computer and I forget or ignore I’ve had to pee for two hours? That pee thing is annoying. If I could go without peeing for a day, think how much work I’d get done! Think how many car trips I wouldn’t have to stop anywhere for breaks!

So, maybe I should just accept that there is so much I can do in a day, and I need to take care of myself. If I was a car, I could push myself all I wanted to but it isn’t going anywhere if I run out of gas. What if it’s just that simple? This car won’t go very far if there aren’t breaks to unwind, disconnect and refuel (which translates into some alone space). And what if…I explain it that way to others?

“I am not being anti-social, and it’s not that you are a horrible person that I need a break from you or that I don’t like or love you, I just need to put more gas into my car at this time, and I will be back on the road with you momentarily.”

Do you think that would work?

Little “Happy”s

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.52.37 AM

 

My word for the year, which I had mentioned in a previous post, is “happy.” And happiness is attained by collecting the little “happy”s, sometimes, in a box.

We knew how to collect little “happy”s when we were little children.

We collected what made us happy and smile, like that crayon of many colors, or Sock Monkey stickers. We keep this part of ourselves alive.

bag6

 

I found these vintage buttons awhile back and they made my heart sing. Maybe they remind me of the Forest.

The sun though stain glass, that makes me happy.

Whoever invented fancy tapes needs to win a medal.

Scouting through my desk drawers, I found this tiny stapler and a teeny, tiny box that holds staples. Soooo cute.

What goes in your Happy Box? Can you start one?

Guest Blogger: David Wagenfeld of Innieblog

I welcome my friend, David Wagenfeld, as my guest blogger this week. David is a fellow sensitive who has a perceptive comic series blog, Innie Blog. In this article, he writes about identifying the true voice of your intuition.

What is intuition?

You know the feeling. You have a big decision to make and you don’t know what to do. You could go this way or you could go that way, you just can’t choose. And then you feel that feeling deep in your belly, that subtle calm voice in your head urging you in a direction. That is your intuition. That is Spirit guiding you, showing you the path that will lead you to your highest good. And all you have to do is trust it.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, “Gee Dave, a lot easier said than done.” When actually, it is one of the easiest things that you can do. Let me give you an example.

It was during the last week in December of 2009, and I was really frustrated because I felt like I had no direction and that I had just been meandering around all year. I really wanted to know what my direction was. I was thinking about it before bed and right when I was in that place between being awake and asleep, I had this flash in my mind that I was to help people use art to access their spiritual sides. And bang I fell asleep. I woke up a couple of hours later and what had flashed through my mind was still there. And I thought, “Well, great, but how am I supposed to do that?” And again when I was between being awake and asleep the word “Artella” flashed in my head, and BANG, I was asleep. The next morning I Googled the word Artella, found the site, (http://www.artellaland.com ) and then the section about the Artbundance Coach Training and filled out the form a few days later. That was my intuition talking to me telling me the right direction to go. Now, I could have dismissed it as my “imagination” or “just a dream” but I trusted it and it led me to the ACT training, which, in turn opened up a whole bounty of benefits, personal growth, and connections, which have enriched my life in ways I never could have thought possible.

Yeah, I hear you, “Well gee Dave, I don’t have things flashing in my mind right before I fall asleep. How do I know what is my intuition?” It’s very simple; it’s a feeling. A calm, quiet feeling; a feeling that excites and charges you up. It’s a a feeling that you just know in the deepest part of your belly is right. THAT is your intuition. And when you feel that feeling, know that you can trust it, and that any of the negative nattering and chattering that may come up is nothing but lies. Trust that feeling, trust your intuition and let it guide you to your highest good.
