The No-nonsense HSP

“Why does it matter that we heal from past wounds and honour our sensitivity with confidence? What is needed in order for us to pursue our true purpose as HSPs? Here is a video about a no-nonsense approach to HSP maturity. Gentle people can be strong too – in a way, its a requirement if we want to make a difference and make the most of the wonderful trait of high sensitivity.” Barbara Allen

Depth of Processing

Depth of processing is the most basic aspect of our SPS trait, and results in the deep, rich inner life most HSPs experience. Research has shown more brain activation in the prefrontal cortex and in a part of the brain called the insula which has sometimes been referred to as the ‘seat of consciousness.’ This creates the tendency to reflect more than others about the “way the world is going or “the meaning of life.” By integrating information and experiences, from both past and present, the HSP’s unique depth of processing can enable a sense and understanding of longer term consequences and may be able to influence future decisions with more creative and expansive thought.
