Understanding Yourself as an Intuitive-Sensitive Person Pages

For the Intuitive-Sensitive, the building of feeling, trust and letting go, to experience a faith in the self, eventually becomes a necessity rather than luxury. Without it, we continue to experience our world as a Sensitive, as overwhelming, emotionally painful and at times soul destroying, as our sensitivity directs us to hide, reject, yet at the same time desire deep meaningful connection.

The Basis of the Intuitive-Sensitive Person

All Intuitive-Sensitive People are Sensitives. Not all Sensitives are Intuitive. I have reached this conclusion through years of interaction with thousands of people, who would define themselves as both Highly Sensitive and Intuitive Sensitive.

Intuitive-Sensitivity shows as an exaggerated form of the Highly Sensitive Person.

My view of the Intuitive-Sensitive Person comes from years of interaction with a lot of people who would term themselves as deeply intuitive, often finding it confusing and somewhat worrying. They worry about what others will, or do, think of their apparently finely tuned instincts, their ability to see situations for what they are, rather than what the world would like to see them as, plus of course their inherent sensitivity.

Intuitive-Sensitive People tend to be the highly sensitive individuals who want to explore their sensitivity, for the good of themselves and others. They want to know what their intuition is about, how to use it properly, what it’s for and why they have it.

In my years of experiencing the Intuitive-Sensitive Person I have observed key parts to their characteristics. They are a refined part of the Highly Sensitive Person, having developed an ‘extra’ sensory component to their natural sensitivity. Intuitive-Sensitivity seems to come from an issue linked to nurturance, which is either consciously part of the Intuitive-Sensitive’s world, or its part of their unconscious heritage. They have in the majority of cases, developed an extra component to their sensitivity, as a layer of emotional self-protection. This ‘extra’ part is an extra-sensory skill over and above the normal senses.

There is a process to the Intuitive-Sensitive’s opening and it relates to an area of their inner world they can’t control consciously. The opening process isn’t asked for. It’s not what many would believe is a mental health issue around psychosis, or indeed psychic fraudulence. It’s a process that affects seemingly very normal people, who perhaps are typical of a particular background or early life experience.

In my experience, it is a hidden trait they keep quiet from their outer world. I have had numerous professionals for instance, confess their extra sensory skills as an Intuitive-Sensitive. I’ve had doctors, barristers, company CEOs, even a university law professor tell me about their secret psychic world. It impacts or ‘happens’ to people of all walks of life. The homemaker, the accountant, the man who is afraid to tell his wife he has extra sensory experiences. The one thing that’s common, it was never asked for, it just came to them, yet often started in early childhood, before leaving for a big chunk of their life.

The return of the extra sensory skills and intuitive instinct reappears for many Intuitive-Sensitives around the same time as other examples of sensory overload become more apparent. Stress is a fact of modern life, for an Intuitive-Sensitive it’s a normal everyday occurrence. Many are great in a crisis, they are the one who doesn’t panic, the person who seems to know almost instantly what to do. They don’t stand there as the rabbit in headlights, their nervous system doesn’t shut-down when difficulty strikes, it comes to life. External stress to an Intuitive Sensitive is almost a pleasurable relief from the internal stress they constantly live with.
