This is a book for those who are light seeking and large. In a world that moves so fast, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed if you naturally move in big, light ways. Trying to track all the small movements to understand them can literally make you sick when you are naturally so subtle and so big.
This book is for subtle giants. You see, we all have nervous systems and therefore a "bigger self" that goes beyond and through the physical body self that is tangible. This bigger self is picking up on so much information in our environment all the time at a very subtle, expansive, intangible level that we cannot possibly be consciously aware of it all. Our nervous systems are what allow us to be sensitive, therefore adaptive and responsive. Some people are born with a more highly sensitive nervous system, and so they are more naturally present in this subtle giant self and less present in the tangible physical part of themselves. We are all somewhere on this map, and we can all be reactive at times as well as learn how to be more responsive.
Dr. Elaine Aron has written about and studied the natural genetic trait that 20% of the population is born with called sensory processing sensitivity. She calls these people born with this trait "highly sensitive people." Her book is a part of this story.
This is the true story metaphor of one of those highly sensitive people, a subtle giant who was trying to live, and how she came to actually be fully alive in all that she is. She hopes you may benefit from her story and that you too may craft and share your own true story metaphor at :: numinousandvoluminous.com :: as well as understand, find, strengthen, express your sensitive self to connect with other sensitive giants at :: sensitiveleadership.com
