The topic of highly sensitive people is relevant to us all. With apologies for the advert at the beginning which you can skip if you like. Though 'sensitive' is perhaps an unsuitable word, perhaps 'highly aware' would be more appropriate. HSP are highly empathic, overly aware and open.

The Vision Quest was held by native tribal people of the Americas and was a time spent alone in nature to learn about themselves and about other species, to be thankful for the water we drink, the song of the birds for comfort and the breeze in the trees for company. We can do this in our time, perhaps with fasting, with meditation, with kindness and love for all we see, hear, feel and experience. This video was made in 2011 but the information does not go out of date.

We are learning from the ancient tribal peoples - age old wisdom - that we must care for what we have or we will lose it. Our unique and finite planet is in danger due to humankind's use of resources, and lack of awarerness with regards to how we dispose of toxic substances. Protecting the seas, the soil and the air is now a priority as is conserving the biodiveersity of our planet where every species relies on each other.

Sit comfortably with your eyes closed.
Exhale and inhale deeply a few times.
Breathe naturally while you focus on the following:
Yoga is a deep well into which we can tap, drawing forth whatever we need to bring ourselves into wholeness and balance.
Ask yourself what will bring wholeness and balance to your life.
Wait for an image or an idea to arise.
Be still with that vision or thought for few minutes.

Clean language is useful in everyday speech. Listening and repeating back is the basis and by using their words. Nine questions are suggested. What kind of X is the X! A great way to start! Originating with the late David Grove's use of metaphor in deep trauma, it has been developed from this point to use in coaching, counselling and business.
Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart throught the world. There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul. -- Carl Jung (from "New Paths in Psychology", in Collected Papers on Analytic Psychology, London, 1916). Carl Jung lived from 1875 to 1961. He was born in Switzerland and his father was a pastor and his grandfather was a Rosicrucian freethinker who, some thought, was an illigitimate son of Goethe. He took a medical doctorate before specialising in psychology and 'the art of living' which involved reconciling the polarities of character and there by bringing about the goal of therapy, 'individuation'. He had many paranormal experiences, such as telepathy, precognition, psychokinesis and was interested in symbolism and metaphors as a way of understanding the mind, coining the words 'collective unconscious' to describe the inner workings of the mind of humanity.
Transcendental Meditation was introduced to the West by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960s. It is a simple method that anyone can use anywhere, but best done in a quiet place alone and without interruption. The technique is a mantra which has no meaning and has no philosophy or religious structure or belief.

Fritz Perls was an innovatory humanistic practitioner whose Gestalt Therapy became very popular during the 1960s. The word 'gestalt' comes from a German word which explains foreground and background images. Perls was a rather controversial figure but his psychotherapy provides fast insight and change.

1. Let of toxic people in your life- in my experiences, they drain me of vital life energy. I found healthy relationships are better.
2. Let g of fretting about past mistakes- forgive yourself and move on.
3. Let go of the need to be right- I had to ask myself how this was serving me and found that it wasn’t
4. Let go of feeling sorry for yourself- I found my “pity parties” didn’t get me much mileage. I only became good at the martyr-victim role which didn’t serve me well in my relationships.
5. Let go of negative self-talk- This is like toxic people in our lives. Switch to positive self statements and see the change.
6. Let go of the need to impress others- Most people really don’t care. And if they do, are they what you want in business or personal relationships?
7. Let go of limiting beliefs - Like #5, this restricts your ability to move ahead. Set goals and an action plan to accomplish them. You will find limiting beliefs will not achieve the goals.
8. Let go of need to please everyone- You cannot please everyone. Just please yourself and you will be happier.
9. Let go of gossip and complaining- this is like toxic relationships. Cut this out.
10. go of worrying about the future- you cannot control the past or future. Be in the present and live fully. Robert Matuszak Visit: http://www.orionconsultingllc.net/
