Are Sensitive People Psychic?

Are Sensitive People Also Very Psychic?

If you are psychic like me, then you may be very sensitive. I  have been excessively sensitive for as long as I can remember. This was continually being backed up by comments made to me such as, “You’re too sensitive,” “Don’t be so thin skinned,” or “You’re a bleeding heart’. Of course, this really bothered me for years until one day it came to me that my sensitivity was most likely the reason I was very psychic, I had an epiphany that, rather than being deeply sensitive was a character defect of sorts, it actually caused me to have heightened psychic abilities. Okay, while this is not meant to claim that all sensitive people are exceedingly psychic, over my many years of teaching and bringing this subject up, many students confessed to me that they were highly sensitive as well.

Sensitive people are to a high degree:

  • receptive
  • perceptive
  • susceptible
  • insightful
  • and highly aware

While these traits in and of themselves do not cause significant problems for many, for others, it’s like being in mental and physical overload much of the time. For highly sensitive people, sights, certain sounds, spicy and oniony smells, and harsh lighting may be difficult to deal  with. Even certain colors may cause some to cringe.

Super sensitive people make very good psychics and mediums. This is not to say that all individuals that are psychic always have to be excessively sensitive. Many psychics just possess the natural ability or have worked assiduously to develop their psychic senses. However, sensitive to people and surroundings are an integral part of, for example, being able to attune with higher beings and dimensions or highly perceptive of the information gleaned from someone’s aura while giving a reading.

During a Mediumship Circle or while giving a reading, one of the first things I notice is a change in the atmosphere of the room. For me, the room begins to have a heavier feel to it. My skin starts to prickle in spots and sometimes I get goosebumps all over. This tells me spirits are gathering that wish to impart a message.

Sometimes I sense that my Gatekeeper Guide is giving me the go ahead to open up to the spirits present. As my protective shield is always solidly set in place before attempting to open to the Spirit World, I know that I am safeguarded from any negative entities that might attempt to “crash” the session. Just knowing that my Gatekeeper is near, adds to my relaxation which is so vital for working with Spirits. This is just one example of how my high sensitivity works with my psychic senses in a session.

Sensitivity and Psychic Abilities Go Hand in Hand

Psychic event that psychically sensitive people might experience:

  • A keen sense of knowing, e.g., knowing when something significant whether bad or good is about to happen
  • Knowing or sensing what others are thinking
  • Making a decision which is instinctive or based on a gut feeling
  • Feeling uneasy or sensing when danger is close by
  • Dreams of events which come to pass
  • Regularly seeing images in the mind which have no relative meaning to what is going on at the time
  • Knowing when someone close is in danger, or someone close is about to cross over
  • Experiencing strange visions or pictures when talking with someone
  • Able to discern when someone is telling the truth, is hiding something, or is being disingenuous or outright lying
  • And the list goes on…

How Might Deep Sensitivity Cause Increased Psychic Abilities?

Highly sensitive people tend to have their Chakras, which help us operate through life, opened more than the average person’s. Out the seven in-body Chakras we all possess, the Chakras most affected by being excessively sensitive, are the 3rd Chakra (governing Clairsentience), 4th (governing Clair-empathy), 5th (governing Clairaudience), 6th (governing Clairvoyance) and lastly 7th (governing Claircognizance). Simply by having these particular Chakras more open, the traditionally recognized five senses of sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch are amplified.

Some of My Own Quirky Sensitive Traits

I confess that I have always been ultra sensitive to harsh light, bad smells, and particular colors. For example, I am not a fan of the primary colors of yellow, red, and blue although I can see these colors clearly when doing aura readings. I am not saying these colors are bad, I am saying, they are more difficult for me to view. The smell of someone eating an onion packed hamburger or pizza makes me ill, although I love to eat them myself. So, I try and keep the house clear of potent smells and use homemade lavender air freshener. I listen to calming music and don’t watch the news too often. When I do, I focus on the good and try to filter out the media’s propensity for dwelling on anything and everything negative.  Yes, in our world, bad things happen every day. I just don’t focus on them. However, if something happens that is tragic or involves loss of life, I send out prayers to those who are suffering.

Being a Pisces Sun Sign, I am highly sensitive to others’ thoughts and feelings. Pisces individuals are naturally prone to being highly sensitive at the get go, so I was born naturally sensitive.  I am also convinced lot of my sensitive proclivities stem from a difficult childhood. Growing up, there was a lot of verbal abuse going on in the home. I have heard it said that verbal abuse can actually be worse than physical violence over an extended duration. I truly believe that individuals who have gone through the same or similar kinds of childhood abuse, become hyper vigilant throughout life. They are always prepared for possible danger from others’ actions or words. It could be because of this, all senses, including our psychic senses, become intensely heightened.

If You Are Highly Sensitive and Psychic, What Can You Do?

Firstly, if you are reading this article, you are already aware that you are highly sensitive and perhaps very psychic as well. If you have been beating yourself up for being a sensitive person and allowing others to victimize you in some way, stop it! Start focusing on what you do have within you that’s special and realize it’s a gift rather than a curse. Then make a list of the psychic abilities you have and being developing them to a higher level. Pinpoint the ones that are strongest and which ones could be causing problems, e.g., “I always over react to difficult people and situations.” Just by doing this, you will begin to feel more in control of your life and emotions. You may also start seeing these individuals and events from a different perspective and may even glean psychic bits of information from them that is helpful to you.

For those of you feeling constant overload on your traditional as well as psychic senses, *ground yourself a lot, and do a daily cleansing of your aura to keep it protected. My “Building a Protection Bubble” is on YouTube.  It is also vitally important to keep things in perspective and to stay detached. This doesn’t mean you don’t care. It just means you are not taking things too deeply to heart. Yes, there are tragic circumstances and events that do happen which require us to feel on a deep level, but one should not feel this way over little things. We are not God and are not expected to carry heavy burdens of others’ tragedies. We can only display compassion and understanding without assuming the emotions of those affected. When you are encountering a very dicey situation, say a prayer and flush excessive bad feelings or negative thought forms which become negative energy in your body, down into the earth and ask the earth to transform it. The earth “naturally knows: what to do with toxic energy. Does this all sound like Woo Woo to you? Well it may it does, but it works!

*Grounding is a spiritual term, referring to centering your soul in your body, and in turn, connecting it with Mother Earth. When one is grounded, they feel safer, focused, and more sure of themselves.
