Scroll the internet and you will most likely get overwhelmed with the “Let’s come together and talk about being over the top incredibly sensitive” groups. They have problems with sensitivity, they love it, they say it empowers and others tell you how it drains the life out of them. Sensitivity is HOT! Let’s all be sensitive woohoo. I am shocked with all the nonsense and craziness going on and perhaps, I’m just way too sensitive for all that sensitivity going around.
My eyes fell out of their sockets when I read a post from a lady that, at about 1:30 AM, posted “I’m drowning” publicly on Facebook.

Almost lost my breath there 😉 The “hi, I’m ok” is day-to-day human interaction, the other is called mediumship! This is not to say that when somebody asks me how I’m doing they better have 5 minutes to hear my life story of the past 24 hours. As a medium, talking about ‘feeling’ is the basis to work from and with. And this is what makes being a good medium so damn challenging; Continue reading “#8 the comfort-zone called “hi, yeah I’m ok””
