SENSITIVE EMPATH NERVOUS SYSTEM
I want to talk to this morning just a bit about being a sensitive empath and how our nervous systems respond perhaps differently from the general population out there. We represent about 20% of the population, but estimates as high as 30% which may be true, but I’m going with 20%.
So I had an oral surgery procedure on Tuesday, after a week and a half of dealing with a molar that was broken under the crown and needed to be extracted and prepared for an implant.
You probably know generally what that kind of a procedure is like
: there’s a lot of using needles with numbing agents, and then there is a lot of pulling and breaking and pressure and digging things out. I was pretty numb so I wasn’t feeling pain and I kept trying to relax my body which kept tensing against what was going on. I had spoken to my vulnerable inner child quite a bit in the preceding week and that day, and was speaking to her while the procedure was going on. Offering understanding, reassurance, loving kindness, affection, etc.
Now here’s the thing, I’ve spoken to a couple of people who’ve had similar procedures and said, “Oh it was piece of cake! I felt fine the next day.” etc etc.
OK well guess what! As a sensitive empath that’s not been my experience. The pain the first day was pretty heavy, and I did take a prescription pain med twice. Then I relied on Tylenol and Arnica. But now we are two days post op, my energy is still very low, and I actually feel a bit shaky, which I attribute to the trauma of the experience and quite possibly the Rx pain meds. My jaw is swollen, sore and tender.
Now some people say that’s being dramatic. Not for me it’s not! I know myself, I know my body, I know my nervous system, and I am saying all this because I want you to be aware and I want you to be is kind and understanding and accepting of your sensitive empath nature when you go through things that other people say is a piece of cake, and it’s just not that way for you.
There’s lot more to say about this but I wanted to make this statement about how OK we are, how there is often a need to deepen our self-understanding and self-acceptance, and how we do actually need additional Sacred Self Care.
I’d love to read your thoughts on this so please Comment. Thanks.
And as always…
I hope you SPARKLE!
