Sensitive People Are the Emotional Barometers of the World

Especially when humanity is experiencing things that cause so much global hurt and outrage.

Think about it:

  • Children separated from their parents as a deterrent to migrants and asylum seekers
  • People described as animals by a country’s ‘leader’
  • France facing what seems like a civil war
  • The UK lost in the utter madness and corruption of Brexit
  • Presidents who have more criminal charges against them than civilians
  • Sudanese protesters being defended by the army against government militia
  • North Korean and Russian leaders masterfully manipulating the world stage
  • Schools and places of worship preparing for the next mass shooting
  • Brunei implementing death by stoning for LGBT human beings
  • Texas debating whether having an abortion should mean the death penalty
  • Multi-Billionaires who already have obscene wealth resisting tax reform
  • US/Saudi Journalist hacked to death in a state-sanctioned execution
  • #MeToo movement formed due to ongoing sexual abuse at the highest levels of power

The sad part is I could go on and on.

Nothing is ever all bad, for this madness has shone a spotlight on our world. It has mobilised real people to take part in creating real solutions. Young people are becoming vanguards for change. Women, people of colour and LGBT citizens are running for office in ever-increasing numbers.

Naturally intuitive people are feeling it all.

Those who are naturally intuitive and who actively pick up other’s feelings and emotions are feeling bombarded and overwhelmed. They sense even the most pragmatic (and dogmatic) person’s real emotions. Experiencing the deep sadness and rationalising of abuse by the most obtuse is part of their makeup. They feel the cult-like followers’ confusion and fear.

We are both the change and the co-creators of the madness.

We are all a part of that change, and we all helped to create the madness. This alone tells us that we are powerful and we will see a new earth arise. A world that is more compassionate and where citizens educate themselves independently. Taking ownership of their previous apathy and justifications for why so much corruption, prejudice and abuse existed in the first place..
