“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
~ Anthon St. Maarten
Are you feeling it? This intensity? Are you feeling exhausted for no good reason, or overwhelmed? Struggling to get through the day? Carrying an unusually big burden of oppression, worry or emotional stress, no matter how good your life might be?
Lovelies, it isn’t just the supermoon.
There are a few other factors at play.
There has been a massive recent shift in the earth’s crust and in the fluids that run beneath our feet. That’s part of the reason New Zealand experienced the earthquake this week that has released an enormous flow of positive ions (the same kind as from solar flares which exhaust and unground you). There are more adjustments to come.
These shifts under our feet, and some of the astrological factors at play, are deeply affecting sensitive people.
As we approach 2017, and the energies of 2016 and the energetic era that concluded with 2012 finally come to a close, there is flux and change in the air.
Big change. Big flux.
It’s so destabilising for sensitive people.
What can you do? Plenty.
Spend time in nature, and with your loved ones. It’s an excellent time to channel and connect to your guides and energetic team. Meditate, pray, and send love into the world, and to all those you love. Especially, send love to those you feel are not living from their heart or who feel isolated or excluded from the community.
It’s a great time for rest. Lots of grounding and plant energy in and on and around your body, because the plants are still grounded and grounding, even though there is so much positive ionic activity around us. Essential oils that will help include lavender, vetivir, sandalwood, elemi, orange and cedarwood. Crystal help? Black tourmaline, red jasper, green aventurine, selenite, amethyst and hematite.
Be really discerning about who you spend time with. These energies will be trawling up emotions for lots of people, which may make interactions tense or difficult. Put your psychic raincoat on and let it all slide off you. Don’t engage (especially if you feel fragile or vulnerable), don’t enter into arguments – all of this just escalates these destabilising energies.
All of us are levelling up as we step into the energies of 2017. For some people this is an easy thing. For others it will be a massive undertaking.
Work on your shit, close doors, let go of what isn’t working. Think about how you want your life and your world to be and take steps now to make that happen. Even tiny steps count. It’s not enough to think about it. In November we’re sowing seeds for the year ahead. We’re all connected, and our individual actions will always affect the whole. Don’t ever think that you can’t make a difference. We need you more than ever!
Trust that 2016 is a game changer on so many levels. Do all you can to nurture and sustain yourself until we get back to solid ground.
Holding you all in my thoughts, prayers and meditations,
Nicole <3 xoxo

I’m feeling the shift. I’ve been wondering for the past year or so why I’ve been feeling so intensely. I put it down to losing mum but perhaps it’s much more than that. Thank you so much Nicole, xo
Thank you for posting this. It was quite a week! Talk about shifting… xx
Thank you thank you thank you for this post!!! As a highly sensitive person I sometimes feel alone, misunderstood and out of place. Ive definitely felt the energetic shift and I’m glad to know it’s not all in my head
Definitely! I was overwhelmed yesterday with sadness, rage, regret – all the things in fact, including a feeling of failure. What was the point? I’ve started on my path too late, I’m 20 years behind everyone else…and on. Luckily I had an apt with my much loved naturopath aka as my mum, and she talked me down 😊 she also said I was suffering specifically from emotional stress rather than intellectual, body or spiritual stress which made sense, because I am least equipped to deal with emotions. None of my normal cures work, and emotions are so overwhelming and irrational lol 😜 anyway, I feel a bit like I’ve had a cyclone pass through. Today I will literally immerse myself in nature and beauty, just like you said xo
I so needed this read! Does snyone know of a group on FB that I can join for support? I desire to connect to people who innerstand what goes on to talk about it.
Thanks for this update Nicole, lots of things have certainly been shifting big time. In some areas, like Kaikoura in NZ, has moved a metre and been raised up 70cm. So biography being our biology, wow to the levelling up happening world wide is huge. It has felt like being in a blender with everything thought dealt with, thrown up again for review and reflection. Onwards and Upwards. <3
So glad you wrote this, I really though it was just me and couldn’t understand why everything feels so intense at the minute!! It’s good to know I’m not the only one, thank you 🙂 x
So good to see someone else confirming what I’ve been feeling the entire year. I’ve used the word “levelling up” several times to my close friends. Though levelling up is a good thing the part some people forget is that your opponents and the world begin throwing bigger bads at you. I’ve also mentioned that 2016 feels like a season finale that hopefully won’t end on a horrible cliffhanger. (Too late for that, I think!) Thanks for the guiding words. Strength and Peace!
Thank you so much for this post. It explains a lot! I feel so much hurt and grieve and loss, as if nothing is ever going to be okay again. My feelings are all over the place. Betrayal, love, jealousy, hate, emptiness, guilt. Nothing makes sense.
I feel all of this so deeply. I feel disconnect from myself and my family. I feel guilt and hurt and sorrow. I feel loss and a lack of understanding. I feel sad and tired. So tired. I feel like I need to ground myself deep into the earth and draw from it the new, green fresh energy it is so willing and able to share. I’m just not sure I have the energy to really go deep enough. But I will, because it is the only way through this and I want with all of my being to feel sparkle, energy and happiness again xx Thankyou for the soul touching post 💗
Reblogged this on Infinite Shift.
Thank You Nicole, explains my week!
I feel the shift. Did not function last week at all. Finally set some much needed boundaries where I have never set them before. Made an appt. for a physical since I have not been in 3 years. Finally feeling unstuck. Just had to sit with the slow energy till it passed. Moving forward! 😉 Wishing you well.
Thank you dear Nicole <3 exhaustion ~ goodness…. and tears building behind my eyes. I can hardly sit erect. And what a time to be involved with people I don't know negotiating the sale of my Sacred Space. And so much to do. I feel so alone and vulnerable. <3
