Characteristics of Highly Energetically Aware People

by on November 7, 2011

About 20% of men and women are Highly Aware  “Sensitives” or “Empaths”: exquisitely sensitive, responsive, compassionate people who are innately able to recieve energy, information and awareness from others in an intense and deep way. 

The other 80-85% of the population find it difficult to understand the overwhelm that may occur with Sensitives in what may seem to be a “normal” setting. 

Many of my clients are highly energetically aware people (HEAPs) who feel such a sense of relief to know they are not overly sensitive.  You will find helpful hints  designed to help manage inundating energy in some of my blogs

If you would to know whether you are highly energetically aware, review the check list of characteristics below.
