The intention of this blog is that it will be a supportive site for you to get inspired and feel uplifted, validated, and enlightened in a like-minded community of compassionate souls.
The highly intuitive soul is the person who is deeper, a higher-level thinker, a compassionate responder, to all that we come across in our daily lives. We are the potential visionaries, artists, scientists, philosophers, and composers. We are the entrepreneurs, the writers and poets, the psychotherapists and healers. We are the conservationists, nature-lovers, practitioners in alternative medicine, activists for human and animal rights, and the creative professionals in many fields of study. We are different from each other in many ways but what is the common thread among us is our compassionate spirit.
Most intuitives have the depth of heart and compassion for how our lives affect the lives of others and we wish to not only cause no harm but enhance the lives of others who share the planet with us. We have the ability to look inward at ourselves as the first solution to a problem–to look for an inner guidance, a positive response, and what we can learn from each and every situation. We rarely blame, lash-out, or condemn others who are different from ourselves–we appreciate each other’s uniqueness. And if we ever do respond in less than a kind way we are quick to feel regret and remorse, admit our mistakes, and apologize genuinely from a heart full of empathy and compassion for those who may have been affected. Compassion for the feelings of others is the gift that unites most of us intuitives as a group and we are growing in strength and number to the benefit of the planet that we share.
Here are some more great quotes about intuition:
“The only real valuable thing is intuition”–Albert Einstein ”
There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.”–Albert Einstein ”
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”–Steve Jobs
Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.–Jonas Salk
It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It’s my partner. –Jonas Salk
This blog is written as a support for all temperament types but may be a special support to the iNtuitive types. This includes INFJs, INTJs, INFPs, INTPs, ENFJs, ENTJs, ENFPs, and ENTPs–all of the intuitive-feeling types and intuitive-thinking types of temperament. Here all of you will find comfort, compassion, and encouragement in my articles written with some focus to support highly intuitive, aka highly sensory-sensitive people. (If you do not know anything about temperament types, it is explained very well in the Cognitive Style Inventory which can be found at this website. The best test to take in my opinion is the one in the book called Please Understand Me by Keirsey and Bates–although the Myers-Briggs Tests found online will give you a similar result to get you started.)
15 to 20% of the population is considered to be highly sensory-sensitive according to the research by Elaine Aron, PhD in her book The Highly Sensitive Person. To see how you score, take the self-test here at: www.hsperson.com/pages/test.htm. To be highly sensory-sensitive is to have intuitive gifts and to be able to know, sense, create, or understand some things instinctively. Highly intuitive people take in 5 to 10 times more stimuli than the average person which can lead us to feeling very overstimulated at times. (Aron) Many less sensitive others we encounter do not recognize our gifts as we often don’t fit in–we are too hard on ourselves as we compare ourselves to others. Hence the reason for this blog!:
Here you will have a safe haven that is a community of fellow compassionate responders. We are the opposite of nay-sayers–we are the positive-minded, seeking to rise above the negativity around us, to surround ourselves with loving, compassionate energy of the highest vibration, so that we may attract more and more positive people, things, ideas, and events into our lives. May we rise above the lower actions and be illuminated to higher heights in our hearts and minds. Here on HIGHER GROUND feel free to express your true voice–leave a comment or email me to submit a post as a guest writer or just stop by and read from time to time. I hope you’ll be inspired as we take the road less traveled–it is the high road to HIGHER GROUND.
With loving support,
