I’ve often wished I were not so sensitive. If you have never read highly sensitive person I highly recommend it. Are used to think I was sensitive just in terms of easily getting my feelings hurt. But that is untrue. I am sensitive with almost everything including sensitive to smells, noises, bright light, changes in the weather, I have a plethora of food sensitivities, and I probably even have a heightened sensitivity to the energy of other people. So, being me is a lot. I used to reject myself for many of these traits, but I am coming to learn to embrace all of my qualities.

One thing I’ve learned is that my sensitivities help me have a very heightened intuitions about how to help students. I am able to tap in to my intuition really easily which helps me unblock students. Have a been trained in good programs? Yes, absolutely. But do I use my inner strength and sensitivities to also and block students? Yes, absolutely.

In fact, I would say that this is the secret to my success. You can be trained in all of the best programs but if you don’t know exactly what is going to unlock a student you’re not going to know when to use each program and which approach may work the best.

I’ve heard it said that when you find what you love to do and you’re very good at what you do that is the secret sauce to life. I haven’t had everything work out for me, but professionally I do feel like I am in that secret sauce zone and I absolutely love it.

If you have a kid who is sensitive, I highly recommend reading the book “Highly Sensitive Person.“ It will help you understand and help your child with their self-esteem and successes in life.

With love, Heidi Nord.
