    Discussing Environmental Sensitivity with Family, Friends and Colleagues with Andrea Weber

    Discussing Environmental Sensitivity with Family, Friends and Colleagues with Andrea Weber

    Thousands of people all over the world manage environmental sensitivities every day. While chemical sensitivity, mold sensitivity, and sensitivity to light and noise are more readily understood and accepted, there is still much-needed change around electrical sensitivity (EHS or sensitivity to EMFs). Environmentally sensitive people typically struggle with having these conversations due to the misperceptions, judgment, and negativity surrounding them.

    The only way to bring about positive change and remove the stigma often associated with these sensitivities is through open and honest discussion, raising awareness, acceptance, and understanding of the impact environmental exposures have on day-to-day living for those who are sensitive.

    Andrea Weber shares the importance of discussing environmental sensitivities with family, friends, and colleagues in this informative presentation and how to do this comfortably and confidently. The information shared is based on Andrea’s experience of what has and has not worked as an environmentally sensitive person.

    Andrea Weber is the founder of Expansive Happiness®, an inspirational site designed to help those with environmental sensitivities lead happy and fulfilling lives through constructive sensitivity management. You can find many more resources on the website, sign up for regular communications, take the free Environmental Sensitivity Quiz and enroll in the Self-Empowered Sensitivity Management Program.

    The Gift and the Curse of Decision Making as HSPs with Willow and Julie

    The Gift and the Curse of Decision Making as HSPs with Willow and Julie

    Making decisions as HSPs can be taxing at the best of times. Our ability to process at a deep level means we can end up in an ever-expanding thought cycle. Things can become quite difficult when coupled with the anxiety of a potentially unwanted outcome. With high levels of intuition and the ability to feel deeply, we have a significant advantage in decision-making. When we allow it, there is a strong sense of knowing that is there to guide us on a day-to-day basis. Yet how can we tap into these abilities more consciously and come to rely on them? In this episode, we look at some tried and tested methods that can be valuable tools in this area. Including what it means to support a decision once it has been made. We will also explore the common sensation of expansion and contraction that many of us experience in our bodies when we ask for guidance. We will also look at the differences between thinking and knowing and the profound relationship many HSPs have with the notion of truth.

    Strategies to Support Empathic Kids, Teens and Parents with Carolina Mariposa

    Calling all Empaths!  Do you and your children have difficulty discerning which emotions are yours vs. which belong to other people? As a parent, do you sometimes get overwhelmed or into conflict with your sensitive empathic child when they show intense emotions?  This event includes an overview of the energetic anatomy of empathy and an introduction to three energy healing techniques which may support you and your child in managing emotional input and fostering feelings of calm in your relationship.  There is an experiential component in the last 10 minutes during which you will be guided to use the three tools.

    Carolina Mariposa, M.S., M.I.M., is a licensed psychotherapist and medical intuitive who specializes in working with highly sensitive children, teens and parents.  She also has the sacred responsibility of being a mother to a strong, sensitive and empathic child.  She is passionate about teaching HSP's to connect with their innate wisdom so that they feel more grounded, joyful, creative and empowered.  While she is endorsed in California as an Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist, she loves supporting children of all ages and collaborating with those who see parenthood as an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth.

    Self Care Ritual for HSP Empaths with Sara Dessau Lopez

    Self Care Ritual for HSP Empaths with Sara Dessau Lopez

    During this self-care practice, Sara gently guides us through a series of at-home rituals and sends us healing reiki to help create a clear and clean energetic line. I encourage you to revisit this whenever life gets overwhelming and you desire peace, calm, and focus.

    Please add your comments and thank Sara for sharing these beautiful tools with us ❤️

    Sara Lopez is an intuitive coach, empath expert, and reiki healer in Vermont, U.S. She is the founder of Empath Magic, a digital community for empaths creating focused transformation.

    Sara’s experience with chronic pelvic pain and severe anxiety in her 20’s finally led her on a journey to overcome overwhelm from high sensitivity. When she learned about highly sensitive people and empaths, she finally understood herself better and learned to navigate the world in a new way.

    Her journey led her to teaching in the public schools for 14 years and then to doing an intensive apprenticeship with women’s health experts based in New York City. From there, she coached countless women struggling with pelvic pain.  She found something was missing from the women’s health coaching world: the emotional piece. When she began supporting women to focus on emotional healing, she was amazed to watch them find physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental balance and transformation.

    Now, she guides empaths to create focused transformation from a place of confidence and calm. She believes empaths are healers of the world’s wounds who deserve to be better understood.  Her work has been published in the Sensitive Empowerment community, Core Spirit, and Period magazine. https://empathmagic.com

    Answering HSP Questions with Julie & Wilow

    Answering HSP Questions with Julie & Wilow

    Julie and Willow answer your HSP Questions!


    How can we stay regulated and balanced while we are feeling deep excitement so we can sleep?
    Can you speak to how perfectionism keeps us trapped from trying out new things and leading our lives with curiosity?
    I get severe overwhelm when driving, particularly in busy or unfamiliar areas. Also going to places such as airports. I was wondering what advice you might have for such situations
    When things get really busy for me I can become very drained and tired. My body can become achy and fatigued and also mentally it's like I have brain fog and can't process quickly or focus, and that leads to making mistakes. I know that it's because we are sensing and taking in so much and that we need to rest and practice self-care at such times. I'm wondering if you have any tips in terms of energy when going through busy times when you can't always practice those self-care tips that help preserve energy.
    How do/did you establish your boundary around what you share publically about your childhood when it comes to emotional neglect, childhood trauma, and parents?
    How can you find an HSP psychotherapist?
    I was wondering if you could share any tips you have to deactivate the flight or flight response when it kicks in.
    And More

    How to manage low energy, negative thoughts, and overprocessing as HSPs with Willow and Julie

    How to manage low energy, negative thoughts, and overprocessing as HSPs with Willow and Julie

    The human mind is wired to look out for us which can often mean thinking worst-case scenarios and a negative view of things. It takes conscious effort to maintain a positive outlook for us all, which of course is not always easy. As HSPs we sometimes have a tendency to turn our powerful cognitive processing ability in on ourselves. When this is coupled with low energy or a pattern of self-doubt and low self-esteem our own minds can quickly become a very difficult place to be. The trouble is, it can be difficult to identify what are just low-frequency thoughts of fear and which are coming from a place of knowing and self-alignment. In this episode, we look at some of the techniques we can use on a daily basis to help maintain a peaceful state of being. Including ways in which we can create peace of mind when our energy is low. We will also look at why we end up in conflict with ourselves when we are simply trying to find a sense of belonging and safety.

Highlighting our HSP layers

I am so appreciative of Julie and Willow for dedicating their lives to uplifting and empowering the highly sensitive community. They are guiding lights 🌟 for all of us to step into our magic and truly soar as the amazingly gifted individuals that we are. These podcasts cover many intriguing topics surrounding the HSP experience in a world that is not designed for us. And yet, despite the challenges we face, we’re always offered supportive tools and a community to lean on. There is an even greater emphasis on our superpowers and the ways we can use them to create a more beautiful and tender world. So much love, radiance and courage emanating from these two beings and their inspiring guests. ❤️ ❤️

Intentional, Inclusive, and Heart-Warming

I found this podcast a couple months back as I was trying to learn more about being an HSP. After listening to several of Julie’s episodes, it honestly feels like I am heard when I listen and I am getting that warm, emotional hug we all need when we feel misunderstood in a modern world that moves so fast! More importantly, I love how inclusive she is to other identities as well. Amazing work, Julie! Keep up the incredible work!
