Highly Senstive or White Coat Syndrome?

I had a very pleasant surprise today, which was totally unexpected. I was recently diagnosed with Lyme’s Disease and referred to a specialist. Having a lifelong fear of doctors I found myself in an unfamiliar waiting room, nervous and full of anxiety waiting to be seen by this new physician. Not knowing what to expect, I could see my hands shake as I handed over my insurance card to the receptionist. Needless to say, I made it into the examination room without fainting and after what seemed an eternity the new physician entered the room. He was pleasant, and welcoming, but still my anxiety was building. Was he going to tell me some dreadful news? Was he going to frighten me? Oh gosh, what is he going to say to me? All these questions went through my mind. Before he spoke, I felt compelled to tell him, I am a high anxiety patient, my way of saying, “go easy on me doc.” He suggested I come off the examination table and sit in a chair and we could just chat about my situation. I gladly came off what felt like a slab to me and sat in an arm chair beside him. After a rundown of my history and my family history, he asked me what my occupation was. I told him I ran a new age company and wrote a new age book. I also mentioned I counsel people on the phone lines. Embarrassed to say I was an advisor and here I was trying to hold it all together in his office. Then he looked at me and said something I have never heard a traditional medical doctor say. “Well, perhaps the anxiety you feel could be a result of absorbing the energies of the people you counsel?” Now he was talking my language! Although my anxiety was not because of the people I counsel, I knew it was my white coat syndrome, but I was so impressed with him and his openness to admit what many medical professionals want to deny. That we are energetic beings and our physical manifestations could possibly be energetic in origin.

At the present time there is an increase of HSP (highly sensitive persons) arriving on the planet. This is due to an energetic imbalance in the earth plane’s energy field. The veil is getting thinner and we are all becoming hyper sensitive to energies that are coming in from not only the collective of the planet, but the non-physical realms as well. Since we live in a multi-dimensional universe the HSP can become connected to energies that are unseen and when they are not aware of their hyper sensitivity this can bring on an avalanche of emotional meltdowns that seem to come out of nowhere. Anxiety has always been my reaction of choice, but it can be an assortment of disruptions in your life. Excess stimulation can cause physical and emotional stress. Symptoms include anxiety, nervousness, unwarranted or irrational fears, restlessness, headaches, dizziness, and even feelings of being detached from your body. Also addictions, mood swings, or even physical manifestations like auto immune diseases can all be undesirable affects of absorbing negative energies that hinder our wellbeing and make life very challenging.

But here’s the good news, these sensitivities are meant to be healing gifts. If we acknowledge that it is possible that many of life’s maladies are energetic in nature and a result of being HS we can identify our sensitivities and work with them resulting in heightened awareness and extra sensory perceptions, which will enhance our lives and the lives of those around us.

What situations make you feel overwhelmed? Make a list of any physical symptoms you have when exposed to various stimuli in the outside world. To help you make your list, think about the following questions:

* How do you respond to loud music?
* Will a loud noise make you jump?
* Does someone standing to close to you make you jump out of your skin?
* Does light really hurt your eyes?
* Are you easily overwhelmed?
* Do certain materials like wool really annoy you?
* Do other people tell you that you’re too sensitive?
* Does caffeine make you bounce off the walls more than most people?
* Do you panic in crowds?
* Do you feel bothered or extremely upset my violent movies or TV?
* When someone walks into a room, do you feel a shift in your mood?
* Do you dislike perfume or does cologne give you a headache?
* Do you suffer from food allergies or sensitivities?
* Do certain over-the-counter cold medications give you adverse reactions or have the opposite effect from what the bottle indicates?

If you answered yes to many of these questions you may be a HSP. It is important to be identify and be ever mindful of your chosen reaction to energetic stressors. In the next journal, we will discuss ways to shield yourself from outside energies and then turn your hyper sensitivity around to work for your own benefit and as always the greater good of all! And in case your wondering, the Doctor had good news for me, my Lyme’s discease was treated successfully and I can now enjoy the upcoming summer vaction without worry. Needless to say, I found my visit with my new doctor very pleasant and my white coat syndrome was eleviated, for now anyway.
