What can you do to cleanse yourself?
If you are highly sensitive, you are more likely to experience an overstimulated feeling. Being overstimulated is often caused by the energy that a highly sensitive person picks up from his environment. It is therefore necessary to learn to protect yourself against negative or harder energy from your environment. In addition, it is important to learn to cleanse your energy, but how do you actually do that? Cleaning energy can be done with water. By getting into nature more often, and meditating. In addition, you can wear and or use gemstones that have a protective effect as support. However, you also need to cleanse the gems, and you can do this during a full moon. You then place the gems in a glass of water by the window.

Respond emotionally and sensitively
When you are highly sensitive, others may find that you react sensitively and emotionally to situations. You can sometimes react more violently or more intensely than you would like. This is often because you have already absorbed some stimuli, which makes you react more intensely. Hence the above tips such as draining absorbed energy are a godsend, to stay in your own emotions and energy. In some cases, people are quick to judge, so try to surround yourself with people who are honest, kind, and even warm-hearted. This will ensure balanced relationships, where respect and understanding predominate.
Highly sensitive children
When you meet a highly sensitive child, you often notice that these children seem wiser. This can be expressed in a certain creativity, but also in a certain intelligence. Highly sensitive children have a greater urge to care for their loved ones and can be more affectionate more often. Highly sensitive children often have an eye for detail, and can ask questions that baffle even adults. In addition, highly sensitive children have a great sense of responsibility.
Are Highly Sensitive People More Depressed?
Because highly sensitive people absorb much more stimuli and energy, they are more susceptible to depression or feelings of melancholy. Yet most highly sensitive people have a strong spirit power that allows them to overcome many obstacles when they know and accept that they are highly sensitive. Highly sensitive people are more often characterized by a more difficult past and often have a perfectionist character.
The thoughts of a highly sensitive person
The thoughts vary from a highly sensitive person. Yet they are often preoccupied with the needs of others. In addition, they are sensitive to what others think of them. They can attach great value to someone else's opinion, especially when they have respect for the other person. When a highly sensitive person has negative or harsh people around them, this can manifest itself in withdrawn behavior, feelings of depression, guilt, and insecurity.
Feeling of not belonging
A highly sensitive person often feels different from others, and may therefore want to prove themselves or withdraw themselves more quickly. For a highly sensitive person it is important that there is acceptance from others. When they are labeled as hypersensitive or emotional in a derogatory way, this can cause a lot of problems. It is therefore important to create a safe and trusted environment for children and people who are highly sensitive. This allows them to reach their full potential. When there is a safe environment for a highly sensitive person where they are valued for their gifts, they can learn to set their limits well and learn to shield themselves from harsh and negative expressions from others. Highly sensitive people are very empathetic and often have great gifts in helping others who, for example, get stuck in their lives.
