Sensitive, Empathic or Celery?

celery

Not everyone that is sensitive is empathic. Not all folks that are sensitive are highly sensitive. And some, are celery. I realized this a few months back when I met a bunch of folks all at once who were sensitive (I tend to draw in lots of sensitive people, I’m guessing because like attracts like, or perhaps, because I wrote a book on it), but not all were empathic, or even highly sensitive. You can be one that is very feeling-sensitive, meaning, your feelings are easily hurt, but you don’t have a clue what someone else is feeling. Some folks don’t even care, and then fall into the Insensitive category.

Sensitive Empathic.

A sensitive empathic person, who I like to write about it here on the blog, is one that is not only sensitive to the environment, energy or feelings, but who is also empathetic to others’ feelings. This type of person can feel what others are feeling as if those feelings are their own. They are great at reading others, and tuning into a room and knowing what “radio dial” of emotion that room is set at, and have the habit of picking up lots of stuff that isn’t their own.

Sensitive.

A sensitive person is one that can have their feelings easily hurt, may feel some things deeply and others things not so deeply, can understand other people sometimes, but may not be empathic in anyway, or tuned in to intuition, or that spiritual connection or energy. Some sensitive people can be very un-empathic with others’ feelings because they fall more in the celery category, and it can be very confusing to other sensitive people, who assume because someone is sensitive, they are also tuned into the feelings of others.

Highly Sensitive.

I just love Elaine Aron’s book, The Highly Sensitive Person. She talks of the special class of folks that are Sensitive Empaths who are, you guessed it, also highly sensitive. Not a freak of Nature, but I think, more of an evolution, these sensitive have bodies that are wired to pick up all kinds of energies and frequencies, that many can not. They process and take in a great deal at one time.

Celery.

Celery are not bad or good, and no judgement by the way, I just chose the word Celery because it came to mind, and I think I’m hungry. (Yeah, now that I think of it, I’m craving a big salad). Celery folks are not sensitive or empathic. They are the thick-skinned which most the time stuff, just bounces off their backs. They are the opposite of the empathic and are here for balance,  and the empaths are here to balance them. We need the folks that are not empathic at all and can live in a world that pretty much just includes their feelings and that’s it. To the empath, this would be like a vacation! And the Celery need desperately to learn how to be more empathic and consider others’ feelings too. The Celery are often extroverts that are able to have a bubble around them that is just their world.

The Insensitive.

We can all have our moments when we are insensitive, especially times when we are too involved in our own stuff to think of others, or when we are so overloaded that we just shut down and off (common in the highly sensitive or sensitive empathic). No one is immune to this dilemma. But then there are the category of folks that are just insensitive and mean. I tend to believe that deep, deep down, these folks are very sensitive and have big walls up to protect themselves that have harden to clay and now they don’t feel not much at all. It is best to avoid the insensitive and remind yourself, it is not your job to melt their clay, nor can you.

So, which are you? Have you met the different degrees of sensitivity? Do you recognize any of these in yourself or others?

Fairy Magic Monday: New Class

fairycastle

For Fairy Magic Monday, I offer a new class for October. When polled, students hands down wanted this class plus more fairy healing. A must for all part fairies.

Heal with Nature and reconnect!

As I was putting together the Fairy Beginner Class, the notes I gathered were extensive. Only some pieces were included and the rest was put away for further classes, with much of the pieces forgotten, until now. Let’s jump back in to the Fairy World and learn more healing tools and lessons from the Fairies, the Gnomes, Water Spirits, and the Cactus People. These aren’t the creatures of fairy tales, but are the energies of THIS world, right now, in Nature. Learn about Balancing with Water energies, Healing & Boundaries with Cactus People, Grounding with Gnomes and Filling in Holes, while communicating with different types of Nature beings. We end with a trip deep into the Forest to retrieve special gifts for each of us for our journeys. To read more and sign up go here.

10 Reasons Empath Skills Class Can Help

empathskills

Empath Skills online class starts tomorrow and sign-ups are all weekend long. Here are 10 Reasons if you are a Sensitive, this class will be beneficial. Drum roll please…

  1. You will learn how to recognize what is your energy and what is not, being able to detach and notice so you don’t walk around feeling like crapola for days when it wasn’t yours in the first place.
  2. You will learn how to read energy — taking advantage of the empathic skill you already have. (Yes, it’s a skill, not a curse.)
  3. There’s the cool NEW exercise called FIND THE FEAR.
  4. You will walk away feeling more empowered and that’s seriously cool.
  5. There’s something to look forward to each week — a new lesson on the course page.
  6. You will find others like you.
  7. You will learn how to claim your space back.
  8. The instructor will give you personal support and virtual hand-holding. :)
  9. There’s a cool audio meditation to listen to, to guide you through your own reading, saving hundreds of dollars.
  10. This class could be game-changing for you living as a sensitive person.

That sounds cool. Go sign up over here.

There is also the Care of the Sensitive Workshop 1 that is fun too.

REVERSE: You might be looking at your limitations this week and areas where you are using “in the box” vs. “out of the box” thinking.

I found this fabulous dress created by fellow fairy, Fairy Nana. This one is insanely cool. Did you see that tutu! I need to save up for my Halloween costume and everyday wear. There’s lots of sizes – children to adults – and there isn’t a shortage of wings. Check out her Etsy shop here.

My fairy research led me to this great blog of creations by Catherine Mcever. Catherine, you’re mind is crazy fun and I love it! Check out her fairy frocks and Wings Shop brochure on the section marked Evidence of Fairies on her blog.

And finally, I found a Faery Tailor making Faery Haute Couture. English artist Emily Bazeley also makes dwellings and fairy furniture. She definitely is part fairy. Her website to browse is over here.

Part fairies that are artists are definitely creative and gifted with imagination, and of course, a heavy dose of Fairy Magic. I am so glad my search led me to these talented fellow artists so I have something to wear!

Fairy blessings,
