I was born “energy sensitive”. I think many children are. As children, we come into this life still connected to the Divine Source from whence we came and we often bring that connection with us. It takes a while and some pretty stiff social training to "forget" it.
I was quickly taught that what I was seeing, and feeling, was not acceptable, it was not “normal”, it was not OK. As a boy, I was taught that my sensitivity made me weak, to be seen as a detriment. Sensitivity, gentle compassion, sadness, and empathy were to be stuffed down, unexpressed, unless through toughness or anger.
I was misunderstood. In a effort to "fit in" and be loved and accepted I eventually wound up misunderstanding myself, shunning my gifts, and living with a secret, because I still felt and saw the world around me in this deeply sensitive and energetic way. I was taught not to show it, and eventually I didn't show it much, even to myself. It has taken me much of my adult life to reclaim my gifts and the full spectrum of my feelings - to see them as a strength and to manage and use them for the highest good for myself and others.
We're seeing more and more children born with incredible emotional, energetic, and empathic sensitivity, and we're going to see more of them. Not only because it is so important to our current evolution, but because it's who we ARE. It's where we come from.
Some of us may have a more natural ease in connecting with and expressing these energies in seemingly amazing and palpable ways, just as some people are born with a greater natural ability in athletics, or the arts, or science. But it is available to all of us, to experience and participate in, just as these other areas are available for us to explore, each at our own level of interest and development.
What kind of world do we create when we support our children, and ourselves, in being who we are, with our natural gifts encouraged, developed, and managed with Love and Understanding? What kind of world does that look like, not only for these children who have these gifts, but for us in our own exploration, learning, and commitment as a support system for them and our great diversity as the human being?
I feel we are being called now to reclaim - to re-mem-ber - our Divine Heritage and use it in our lives, here and now. These children are here to help us do that. I feel that empathy and connection to our Divine Home energies will become more and more common and accepted, now, in my lifetime. We can learn from these beautiful souls, and we can help them to honor and manage their gifts so they can use them to continue our evolution and re-mem-ber-ing. It may come with challenges, yes. I believe we came here for those - to Create, to Love, to Live fully, each with our own unique gifts and perspectives contributing to the whole.
How will you show up for your energy sensitive child today? What will you say to them? What would you like to contribute to the greater well-being and quality of life of all our children, and ultimately, ourselves?
Interested? Wondering? Need support? Contact us here at The Little Light Project. Talk with others like us who live in and understand these energies and this call to greater sensitivity and awakening. We're here to help.
What a beautiful and exciting world I see as I participate in this unfolding expansion. What a beautiful world we can create, and allow for the children, for ourselves. The time is now.
