Most (but not all) women are sensitive in some way.
Maybe they’re more emotional than other women, more intuitive, more dramatic in how they think and speak, or more keenly aware of their physical surroundings.
But some women (and men!) are soulfully sensitive. Are you?
Soulful sensitivity is a personality typing that’s more commonly known as “High Sensitivity” and people of this type are referred to by psychologists as HSPs or Highly Sensitive People.
(I want to repeat— it’s NOT a personality disorder— it’s a personality TYPE. ;))
I call it “soulfully sensitive” because it sounds kinder and frankly, more in keeping with the special, soulful nature of those who have it.
It’s a trait that’s seen in both men and women.
Sensitivity, like other personality traits, manifests on a spectrum. Some people are more sensitive than others and therefore, can experience more of the challenges that come with this beautiful and unique disposition, especially when it comes to love, dating, and relationships.
For example, people with this trait tend to fall in love too quickly (not always with the right people) and perceive rejection too intensely.
If you’re single and having a hard time with dating, or you’re in a relationship that’s not as fulfilling as you’d like it to be, you may want to keep reading to see if you share this trait with 15―20% of the population. If so, you’re going to learn how to make the most of your unique nature, increase your confidence, take better care of yourself, and improve all your relationships— especially those closest to your heart.
Sensitivity comes in two categories: emotional and physical. Here’s how to tell if you’re either, or both.
Check to see if any of these characteristics describe you:
You may also be physically sensitive if:
You may relate to a few, or all of these. The more characteristics that apply, the more sensitive you are.
What this means for you, when it comes to love and dating especially, is that you take things all too hard. You tend to get inspired and starry-eyed easily, but also get exhausted just as quickly.
When things go wrong or don’t move forward when you want them to, it feels like you’re coming apart at the seams. You agonize.
This isn’t something you can shake off. You can’t just “snap out of it.”
That’s because this trait isn’t a choice for you. It’s inborn (genetic).
Also, just in case you’re worried, this is NOT a personality disorder or anything that needs to be fixed. It’s simply a personality type that comes with its own strengths and weaknesses, just like any other personality type.
It’s not bad or good…it’s neutral. How you THINK about it and how it makes you FEEL and BEHAVE is where you can get into trouble…especially with men!
Being soulfully sensitive is a beautiful thing. It makes you so lovable and exciting to be around. It’s why you’re so empathetic and creative.
It impacts how you perceive the world, how you respond to life, and how you feel about love and relationships.
It is the soulfully sensitive woman’s relationship to love that got my interest many years ago, because of a trend I noticed in my private dating & relationship coaching practice.
As a Vedic astrologer counseling women for over twenty-five years, I started noticing an interesting coincidence: without fail, the vast majority of women who came to me for readings and advice fit the profile of soulfully sensitive— especially when it came to their love lives.
They were telling me how hard they were taking it when they felt rejected or slighted by men. How quickly they connected with that guy that turned out to be all wrong. How exhausted they were by dating or how devastated they were by break ups or divorce. How everything just felt like…too much, all the time.
As a result, they often didn’t date for years (sometimes decades!), feeling like it just wasn’t worth it, and that they’d only get hurt some more…
You’d think women like this might be socially awkward, or unattractive. But what amazed me again and again was how lovely they were, and how rich and successful their lives were in every OTHER way.
Why couldn’t they have the same GREAT results in love that they had elsewhere?
I wanted so much to help these women. So I did some research on the highly sensitive trait.
And you know what I discovered? Even though there was a lot of information out there about the WHAT and WHY of this trait…there was woefully little information for these women when it came to LOVE…
I could read about their different nervous systems, how this trait shows up in their cortisol levels, their blood pressure, their serotonin, etc. But I could find almost NOTHING about WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO SAY, and HOW TO BE with men…
In other words, there was a good amount of information out there about what qualities distinguish the sensitive people from other people and the physical realities of the science under it all, but there was pretty much ZERO significant information about what these soulfully sensitive people were supposed to DO to make their love relationships easier and better while honoring this oh-so-significant part of them.
That’s when I knew I needed to find and develop the answers myself if I wanted to help my soulfully sensitive clients find love without changing who they were at the core. Why would I want to change them, anyway?
Soulfully sensitive women are so alive— so sensual, creative, spiritual, and fun. My mother was this way, my sister, too— which must be why most of my best friends and my husband are soulfully sensitive, as well (’cuz I LOVE these people and the amazing gifts they bring…).
They shouldn’t have to change, or even be judged for who they are. They should be celebrated!
You ARE wired differently than most women, and that simply means you have to do things differently.
And you need more support.
That’s all. Easy peasy.
