Bonjour les Divers,
Here you get one step further your Self Discovery ; have heard of Empathy? Did you know it is a Super Power? Well, half part of my life I have been struggling this psychic gift, today I am kind of accepting, and let me guide from it. What you need is basically creating a shield ( can be both psychic and physical ) in order to master it and not being destroyed by it. Because I am lazy, I will put you here two of my best speakers I found on my web searching until now. You can subscribe their channels, or just taking what you need at this right moment. And that’s ok.
oh well, they speak alot, if you are sleepless will be perfect….
What do you do when you feel you are born with an unbearable flaw, and you don’t know yet that you share it with 1.4 billion people. Rob and Jessica grew up feeling just that. Inspired by the international bestseller, The Highly Sensitive Person and global media sensation 36 Questions that lead to love, SENSITIVE AND IN LOVE tells their story. Besides their sensitivity, the brother and sister share a traumatic childhood. Jessica is an accomplished writer in San Francisco, but every one of her romantic relationships have crashed and burned. Rob, a successful music producer in Manila, has a seemingly happy marriage, but it is headed for a cliff. Robbie insists Jessica comes to the Philippines for a much-needed break. While there, a single mistake opens Jessica to the world and a terrifying moment for Robbie opens him to a real family connection.
In Elaine Arons’words…
While many HSPs had good-enough childhoods—no serious trauma, abuse, neglect, bullying, or the like—most of you had parents and teachers who had no idea about high sensitivity. They may have tried to ignore it or even to eliminate it from you. (This also happens to the main characters in the film—we loaded it on!) This failure to be understood makes it easy to grow up feeling there is something wrong with you. When you live that feeling, even if you hide it, it is easy for others to think something is a little off or odd about you. Even in an otherwise good relationship, it might be easy for a partner to accept that sense of you also.
Dr. Aron earned her M.A. from York University in Toronto in clinical psychology and her Ph.D. at Pacifica Graduate Institute in clinical depth psychology as well as interning at the C. G. Jung Institute in San Francisco. Besides beginning the study of the innate temperament trait of high sensitivity in 1991, she, along with her husband Dr. Arthur Aron, are two of the leading scientists studying the psychology of love and close relationships. They are also pioneers in studying both sensitivity and love using functional magnetic resonance imaging. She maintains a small psychotherapy practice in Mill Valley, CA.
Hey Individuator, I just had this feeling to reblog your post, and thank you for sharing your experience about being “empathic”. I am having a busy time at work and little time for posting, but this will be a great topic to share. Me too, when I finally realised and accepted being empathic and highly sensitive like being “different” at this world, alright, that made a lot of difference in my being here. life changing. it was like “aha moment” to me. YES! got it so, now, what?
this question is in progress, but since, I met at work other people like me whom I am deeply connected; and discussed about energies, minearals and their powers; protection techniques, how to deal with energetic vampires and so on.
Next will be how to deal with narcissistic, right?
Did you know that we are right the opposite therefore we attract them. Yes, … It’s not by chance or misfortune, … wake up 😀
Take care, keep posting xx
Having worked in the mental health field for many years I have had numerous conversations with various psychiatrists and psychologists around being empathic. Also about the role of numinous spiritual experiences in individuals.
The article that follows albeit a theoretical scenario is a fair precis of the my interactions with professionals both at work and in my own therapy, although a little ‘tongue in cheek’ at times.
I will refer to myself as Mr P and the health care professional as Mr T.
Mr T: “Hello Mr P, how can I help you today”?
Mr P: “Well it’s kind of complicated. It’s probably best if I give you a brief overview of my experiences to date.
Firstly I find myself to have strong empathic tendencies. I belong to a few empath groups in order to share our experiences as they seem to be somewhat unique amongst the general population.

Basil, I am planting basil on my mini balcon.
And I just found this article about empathy, and resilience, and the real revolution we are witnessing. We are living a time of changing. And you know what? I have been attending a class of Excel and Word this week, some basic class, to get started with those beautiful softwares which are like white magic to me.
We were a group of people who are trying to requalify them selves in order to keep our job after our “accident”. Me, after burn out, and inability to work as receptionist anymore. The other girls were especially physically concerned, one is a dancer and broke her bones training, the other got leucemia, and she is recovering, but still smoking, another one has got the handicap status but dunno why exactly, she comes from food and beverage, and she hates sitting in front of a pc, typing all day.
This made me realise just one simple thing that I would like to share with you: we, as Trauma Survivors, or PTSD sufferers with no Trauma, are the living proof that we are all different. Despite what this Consumers Society wants to promote ( and fuck** Yes, I bought those Adidas too) .
PTSD are a self-defense reaction of our body and mind who tell us that we are not well, and the message sent is quite clear. And not only, we have been told that we need help, we need each other, but also that we need our Self, our Self Love and Worth.
Yes, tonight, planting my basil I wanted to tell you exatcly how I feel it.
We are a living proof of human beings Uniqueness. The fact that we find in this Community of Mental Health disease (we are just Sensitive people), it’s even more evidence. No one of us has got the same story, but we share the same symptoms.
Let’s celebrate this Uniqueness altogether.
Basil is a very sacred plant and she attracts love, protection and wealth. Put a basil on your flat entrance or at the windows and you’ll attract good vibes.
I appreciate you are here.
The Army’s Criminal Investigation Division posts a long-overdue article at army.mil about the scams we see almost daily at TAHHQs in regards to people pretending to be members of the military in order to separate you from your money;
Be extremely suspicious if you are asked for money for transportation costs, communication fees or marriage processing and medical fees.
Many of the negative claims made about the military and the supposed lack of support and services provided to troops overseas are far from reality, check the facts.
If you do start an internet-based relationship with someone, check them out, research what they are telling you with someone who would know, such as a current or former service member.
Be very suspicious if you never get to actually speak with the person on the phone or are told you cannot write or receive letters in the mail. Servicemen and women serving overseas will often have an APO or FPO mailing address. Internet or not, service members always appreciate a letter in the mail.
Be very suspicious if you are asked to send money or ship property to a third party or company. Oftentimes the company exists, but has no idea or is not a part of the scam.
Be aware of common spelling, grammatical or language errors in the emails.
Be very cautious when placing your personal photographs on social media sites.
I’d add that real members of the military will never scan and send you their ID cards.
CID strongly recommends that Soldiers, civilians and family members who come across any known suspicious social networking or dating site profile or are solicited in this fashion from a person posing as a U.S. Soldier, immediately email CID at Army.CID.Crime.Tips[at]mail[dot]mil.

In january 2018, I got surgery and spent two weeks home. At Christmas time I usually go for some volunteering, and my choice, for this year, went to US Forces Penpals.co.uk.
Not bad. I could tchit tchat a little bit with welsh vet soldiers, but it’s quite exploited worldwide. And what makes it more interesting, it’s their fund raising, for Combat Stress Foundation.
To be honest, I wasn’t there to flirt with men in Uniforms, despite I admit their charm on my girly psyche, which sometimes believe still in the Unicorns. Forget about it.
My research on military websites was kind of a revelation. First, it’s full of scammers and that’s a fact. Second, how about all those lovely warm hearted ladies looking for their hero? Not only, I guess this comes from our nature as women, it’s this compassion living and driving force which lead us – remember the Red Cross nursery and Vera Lynn – to support the troops moral.
From 40s in Britain to 50s in the US the step is a little one.
So, basically this post is not devoted to military, this time, but to us as massive supporting and leading forces to this world’s macho-oriented global world. To that nigerian scammer I have been penpalling with, suspiciously enough, I say “good job” ! Pity that you use your talent to fraud vulnerable and caring ladies positively sharing their unconditional love, and this explains me also why all those black women, who I met in 90s while going to school, on the train, in the morning, on the Adriatic Coast, came from Nigeria. Poor women, … poor men. Wait, I am not a kind of racist, since my best jobmates ever come from Ghana, Senegal, Congo and Mali. Got it?
You are poor men because your mind is so talented and clever that you put your skills on a scam business which give you certainly money and power, among your Country, but at the cost of your moral integrity. Now, go and wear proudly your Nike, put your classy tshirt on and live a happy life, preaching God on the mess. And don’t forget to ask for pardon, because these women are so kind that they will surely allow you. Don’t you know that we, the so-called white westerners, are the first victims of this capitalist crazy state of mind?
How do you feel right about now? how about when you look into Your Eyes when looking in a mirror on the wake up call (if you have any)?
Deep in my heart, I know, that you are better than this. You only failed to prove it.
Until now. Blessings, to all Romance Scammers. Amazing grace, it’s Easter Time.

The PTSD Beautiful Trauma Project was born in France, in 2018, after 3 years from terrorist attacks to the “Charlie Hebdo Magazine” Board Office. Despite not being an activist, neither politically, nor labour councillor, I felt soon concerned and, in fact, I was. They say that, if you want to grow and evolve, in a lifetime, you get what you need, and not what you want. This was my case.
After multiple and unfortunate events, in Paris suburbs (2015), I woke up from burn out one mild day in mid-September, and I finally began my journey with struggling with PTSD as trauma survivor.
The social, both personal and professional, context I have been through this Parisian terror season, not only put me in a diseased mental health condition, but also forced me to a life-changing transformation. Understanding, first, talking and taking actions, in the aftermath, were the only way to move forward.
Today, although, my work position is still in progress, as well as my emotional, physical and psychological state, my Body/Mind Health and Wellbeing are developing and improving one day at time. Panic attacks are over. Anger is a best friend of mine. Finally, I could find my purpose, and stick into my big dreams and life goals.
One side, the technique of Self-Discovery, thanks to the professional help of a kind lady, from the Occupational Psychologist Service, led me to a process of looking at my own identity, and therefore finding my True Self (Empathic and Highly Sensitive). On another side, my personal journey with PTSD recover was a chance to explore my potential, gifts and spiritual Path.
What could I ask more from a tragic event, and a chaos state of mind, other than survival? This project and my present life driving’s force speak out loud.
A couple of valuable aims will be sharing my personal tips about coping with PTSD, and ultimately, co-creating a community around Mental Health awareness, as well as Common Values.

Spencer Morgan And Dieter Hedrick Are On Opposite Sides Of The War And Fighting For The Same Thing.
At the age of fifteen, Dieter’s blind devotion gets him promoted from Hitler Youth into the German army. Dieter’s determined to prove his allegiance and bravery all costs.
Spence, just sixteen, drops out of his Utah high school to begin training as a paratrooper. He’s seen how boys who weren’t much in high school can come home heroes, and Spence wants to prove to his friends and family that he really can be something.
Their worst fear was that the war would end too soon — that they wouldn’t get the chance to prove themselves. But when they finally see the action they were hoping for, it’s like nothing they could have ever imagined.
here you are, one of my fave movies of all times. Not only because it’s set in the 60’s. It definitely deals with one of my fave topic: “understanding emotions”.
“When he look at me he doesn’t see how much I am incomplete. He sees me as I am”.
Hey, I wish I can find my Mr Mermaid. And you?
