Non-HSPs or HSPs or empaths — which one are you? Innate sensitivity isn’t negotiable, as discussed in “Becoming Sensitive,” our Part One of this Three-Part Series. A series designed to bring you skills for a kind of sensitivity that everybody can have. Bringing you more success and personal growth. Maybe even helping with spiritual awakening.
Gaining SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills can also help the society that you live in. Because society isn’t run by American President Trump with the horrifying aura. Or new British Prime Minister Johnson, also in extreme spiritual addiction. Or Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison. Likewise in extreme spiritual addiction.
Or other leaders who may have political power aplenty. But people like you and me? We’re the ones who set the real tone. We’re the ones who create the London Bus Conductor Effect. Helping humanity to rise up and shine. Making a difference by smiling authentically, not fake. Making a difference, potentially, for every single person you meet. Even strangers you walk by in a store.
SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills are a way for people like us to keep life human. Decent. Caring.
What Are SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills, Anyway?
Simply put, they’re how to improve your social connection to others. Displaying sensitivity through appropriate behavior. Not manners, exactly. Nor how to get “followers.”
Rather, these are skills for showing consideration to others. Honoring and even uplifting your fellow human beings.
Once you start pursuing these skills, you may be amazed how much these they can deliver. Improving your relationships. Indirectly, helping to rebuild the fragmented society around you.
And much as I care about helping people who are Highly Sensitive, or even empaths, let’s get real. Right now, SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills are a way for each of us to make a difference.
Please consider sharing today’s article with people you know who care about making a positive difference.
How Can You Learn SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills?
First of all, please don’t think you already know them.
Empath Empowerment® skills are really essential for empaths, I think. Yet it would be unwise to confuse them with SOCIAL Sensitivity.
Granted, Daniel Goleman’s work on Emotional Intelligence was a clever start. Ever hear of “Emotional Intelligence”? Bet you don’t know how much it aims to control people. Namely:
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is defined as the ability to identify, assess, and control one’s own emotions, the emotions of others, and that of groups.
Yes, control people. Ethically, that’s so wrong. In my view, sensitivity-wise, so-called “Emotional Intelligence” is the ultimate INsensitivity training.
RES-Style SOCIAL Sensitivity Doesn’t Involve Controlling ANYONE
Seems to me, though, it’s about time people stopped conflating emotional experiences with sensitivity. Honestly! Many HSPs and empaths aren’t strongly emotional. Not at all! Yet they’re still Highly Sensitive Persons. (Or, in the case of empaths, Highly-Highly Sensitive Persons.)
So, for developing today’s SOCIAL sensitivity skills, what works best? Yesterday’s blog post, plus today’s Part 2 and, following that, Part 3 of this series, yes! Here’s a way to get you started. Incidentally, beyond reading that blog post with the link…
Please check out Blog-Buddy EDWARD’s poignant Comments #9-11, and the responses that follow. Also aiming to help, I’ve got today’s counter-culture SOCIAL Sensitivity tips for you. Moving forward with our three-part series. Altogether expanding our collection of Sensitivity Tips. (Why will we start at #4 today? For adding on to the tips in our last blog post.)
Non-HSPs OR HSPs: SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills Tip #4.
Use Everyday Good Manners
If you go out in public, take a good look:
- How adults sprawl or lounge in public places.
- Whether they say please or thank you.
- Or cover their mouths when they yawn or cough or sneeze. (Not just make a vague gesture in the direction of an elbow.)
As a result, these thoughtless people proclaim self-involvement. Rather than any social sensitivity whatsoever.
It’s all too easy to fall into rude behavior. George Washington’s Rules of Civility are a quick read. And a smart read, for anyone who wishes to act like a person who’s got sensitivity.
What makes this a Skill? And Vital for SOCIAL Sensitivity!
Good manners are designed to help humans get along.
Manners meant a great deal back in the Age of Faith. That is, before the Shift into the Age of Awakening on 12/21/12. True, those Old Rules don’t matter as much as the New Rules for living now. (Both sets of rules are part of the helpful education that awaits you in “The New Strong.“)
- Back then, almost nobody was energy sensitive. So at least manners provided a human connection when people met socially.
- By contrast, today everybody who wishes to be energy sensitive… IS!
- Unfortunately, many folks don’t know how to use that. Commonly they take the spiritual bypass: Avoiding human responsibilities and outsourcing human problems to “spirit.”
How crazy is this? Folks meeting you in public are more likely to check out your vibes than to look you in the eye. Or smile.
But you can date to be counter-culture. Nod or smile at those human beings you meet on your path. Don’t ignore them. Using SOCIAL Sensitivity can sometimes be just that simple.
Non-HSPs OR HSPs: SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills Tip #5. Learn Face Reading
What, judging people’s faces as a way to appear more sensitive?
Ha, I don’t mean that. Sure, most people do that already. However, face judging is not face reading.
When I recommend face reading, I’m inviting you to learn the system of Face Reading Secrets®. Inviting you in my role as “The Mother of Modern Physiognomy.” (As the awesome, late physiognomist Narayan Singh Khalsa… has called me.)
In minutes of study a day, you can use this book to master this way of seeing faces. Both your faces and the faces of people you meet.
The system is designed to open your heart of compassion. Automatically, you’ll wake up to how different other people are inwardly. Different from each other. And also different from you.
Reading faces for character is a life skill that will enrich your everyday experience of other people.
An immediate upgrade to your social sensitivity!
Non-HSPs OR HSPs: SOCIAL Sensitivity Skills Tip #6.
Avoid Entertainment that Coarsens You
More than other entertainment outlets, a number of Netflix’s hit shows spotlight gruesome violence, often committed against women, according to viewership statistics and industry experts. And Netflix is both more popular (some 60 million U.S. subscribers) and more intensely watched (in all rooms of the house, often multiple episodes at a time) than traditional television, raising worries among some media-violence experts.
What won’t you read in the media that you can read here? Whatever you see and hear goes forever into your subconscious mind.
What makes this a Skill? And Vital for SOCIAL Sensitivity!
Choosing “entertainment” selectively is a way to show respect for your inner self. Allowing you get to keep your full innate sensitivity.
Protecting yourself rather than coarsening yourself… also makes you more likely to treat your fellow humans with respect.
RES Perspective on “Entertainment” with Vivid Violence, Cruelty, Suicide, etc.
Yes, suicide. Months after a certain, notorious Netflix show, suicides spiked. And that’s just one example of how we can be confused, demeaned, or coarsened due to watching questionable entertainment.
Every murder you witness, or blood-curdling scream that you hear… via movies or TVs… stays with you. How?
I’m going to get a little technical here. But if you’re an RES client, you may well have had sessions related to removing these various problems.
- Permanently lodged in your “Energetic Hologram Collection.” Which is what advanced RES experts access… for helping clients, including Vibrational Re-Positioning®.
- This Collection of perceptions stays active in your subconscious mind for the rest of your life! Coloring how you react to other people.
- Even more concerning, you’ve also got a Storehouse of Impressions. (Known to the ancients as the Chitta, or Chit.) This collects every perception you’ve had in your long history as a soul.
- Should you ever choose to incarnate after this lifetime, all those same memories will continue to bog you down. Unless you learn skills like those in the Spiritually Sparkling Collection of Workshops — or have some RES Energy HEALING Sessions — what else? You’re probably carrying Negative Thought Forms right now. And they’re mucking up your aura.
- Furthermore, televised violence gets stored in your aura in the form of Frozen Blocks. These can always be triggered energetically, creating “everyday limitations” to life. And these are limitations that don’t have to be. (Granted, certain RES sessions can help you to remove the rest of these permanently. But why not avoid getting them in the first place?)

A Link Between Violent Entertainment and Highly INSensitive Behavior?
I do. How about you?

In Part Three, we’ll finish this survey of ways that NON-HSPs, HSPs and empaths can all have better quality of life.
In Conclusion, for Now
Maybe you know, I’ve served as an Empath Coach ever since writing the first book in English for empaths. (We’re talking years before 2000. And I’ve twice replaced my starter book for empaths since then. Now offering this reader-friendly book as my #1 book for Empath Empowerment.)
More context: In recent years, I’ve begun to offer workshops for HSPs as well as empaths. (Including the first-ever Socially Savvy HSPs and Empaths Workshop. Planning for a sweet group of course participants meeting here in Northern Virginia on August 10-11, 2019. )
Over the decades, I’ve witnessed the proliferation of advice and training for empaths. Plus more and more resources for Highly Sensitive Persons, as well. It fascinates me how strongly I disagree with many of these approaches.
For example, you may know that I don’t consider HSPs or empaths to be victims. Hint: The system called Empath EMPOWERMENT.
How ridiculous is this? So many people consider themselves too sensitive to function…
And yet they’re still watching gruesome movies. Or they’re hiding from others. (Quite opposite to engaging in life as somebody with awesome face reading skills.)
Most recently, many are becoming increasingly self-absorbed in their quest to be “happy empaths” or “intuitive empaths.” Seems to me, remembering to use good manners when out and about, could serve “sensitives” far better. Far, far better.
