Becoming the angel that you are

people are hypersensitive. They cannot stand the noise, aggression and
hasty pace of modern society. Often they suffer from psychosomatic
disorders and insomnia. What other folks take for granted, for example
going to a family party, is quite a chore for them. Simply doing what
other people consider normal often turns out a disaster for them.

a child they are often misunderstood and under-appreciated. Because
it’s hard for them to stand up for themselves and because they easily
dream away, school time is tough. Building a career and becoming
successful according to society’s standards often doesn’t work for
them. They more or less muddle along at the fringes of society.
Participating in mainstream activities is experienced as exhausting and
draining. Because of all this, their self image isn’t very positive;
they often feel insecure and inferior. Their thoughts are gloomy and may
repeat themselves endlessly.

Of course, this image is somewhat
of a caricature. Yet many people will (partly) recognize themselves in
it. Let us now focus on some of the positive traits of hypersensitive
people. They appreciate peace and quiet and long to live in harmony
with their . They are sensitive to beauty, especially the
beauty of nature. They are very empathic and open to the spiritual. They
have a rich imagination. To their own surprise, people who are in
trouble are naturally drawn to them and come to them for guidance.

is the matter with these people? The answer is that they are not (just)
hypersensitive, they are highly sensitive. In fact, they are angels in

What is high sensitivity?

Every living being
emits a certain vibration or aura: flowers, the sun, people, animals,
plants, and also human society at large. You are highly sensitive when
your vibration, your aura is more refined and delicate than the
vibration of human society.

Imagine a radiant, beautiful angel
descending from heaven to be born in a human body in a modern
metropolis. The angel has a hard time coping with the noise, the chaos
and the ugliness of the world around. Where is the serenity and beauty
of nature, where are the flowers? Where is the deep inner knowing, the
sense of unity with the cosmos? The angel feels shattered and alienated.
The world around does not nurture or acknowledge him (or her*). The
angel starts to think that there’s something wrong with him and he
becomes sad and depressed. As he does not feel at home here, he
withdraws and vaguely longs for another reality. The people around him
consider him to be a dreamer who does not want to face the facts of
life. The angel’s light diminishes. Whereas he was a high sensitive at
first, he has now become a hypersensitive.

You may wonder why
this angel incarnated on .

Many angels are incarnate on
Earth and every angel has their own motive to be here. There is however
one general motive: to help Earth. Through the presence of all of
these angels, human society as a whole gains in light and sensitivity.
The angelic presence raises the vibration of the world. This happens
especially when the angels remember who they are and when their
self-confidence is restored. That’s when their light will truly shine.

Now imagine that you are such an angel.

What can you
do to become radiant again, to transform your hypersensitivity into
high sensitivity?

Step 1 – Realize that you are an angel

that you are an angel and don’t be afraid to show it. Believe in your
own light, your creative abilities and overcome your fear to show
yourself. This is the first step.

How do you do this? It’s
important to connect to the spiritual. See the world from a spiritual
perspective, remember the timeless realm of love and beauty that you
originate from and to which you belong. You have always been in touch
with this subtle, ethereal reality. Now take another leap and really
believe it to be there. The moment you connect with it, you also get in
touch with your own inner core and start to realize who you really
are. You remember that your consciousness is eternal and that it is a
magnificent source of light and creativity.

The moment you feel a
part of this other realm, which is your true home, the judgment that
human society places on you becomes much less of a burden to you. You
realize that your stay here is only temporary and that this hectic,
chaotic society will disappear one day and make place for a more
peaceful, harmonious and happy society. What this current society
thinks of you and expects from you is not so important anymore. More
important is what you are here to do, how you are going to manifest
your light in this world.

By sensing your true origin, you
your own light. Light is creative and transformative. You will notice
that your environment will start to respond to you differently. Life
will flow more easily and people will take you more seriously. You have
taken a fundamental first step in the transition from hypersensitivity
to high sensitivity.

Step 2 – Become aware of your

You are able to truly give your light to others only if you are also
able to not give it. If you cannot say ‘no’ to people, your
‘yes’ has no meaning. Learning to set boundaries and to stand up for
yourself is crucial. If you don’t do this, your flows into a
bottomless pit and you will permanently feel weak and drained.

prevent this from happening, you need to get in touch with your male
energy. Many people who are inclined towards the spiritual, have a
negative image of the male energy. It is associated with violence,
oppression and aggression and considered to be not spiritual. As a
result of this negative attitude towards the male energy, many
spiritually inclined and hypersensitive people feel disempowered and
unable to stand up for themselves.

The solution is to understand
that there’s nothing wrong with the male energy per se; it is the imbalance
between the male and the female which causes the problem. By
regarding the male energy to be inferior, many people weaken their own
strength. This happens particularly in sensitive women. Especially when
you go through a process of spiritual growth, it is of prime
importance to connect with your male energy.

As soon as you take
step 1 and become more aware of who you really are, you will distinguish
yourself energetically from your environment. Your light will be
noticed. This will attract to you what I call energy leeches. These are
people or other entities, for instance the organization you work in,
who will feed themselves with your energy. They deprive you of energy
without giving something back to you. If you’re not able to protect
yourself in such an environment, you get stuck.

At this point,
you need to use your male strength. Embrace the male part of you, your
inner man, and trust him. Let him take the shape of a sword in your hand
which severs the bonds between you and everything that deprives you of

A common pitfall in using the sword of your male energy
proficiently is the notion of equality. “We are all equal and therefore
I should not distinguish myself from others, and share what I have
with them.” The idea of equality is right to some extent. At the level
of the soul we are equal. At the level of manifestation however we are
not. Some people are more able to let their inner light shine through
than others. By not acknowledging this, we give energy leeches free
range. Especially people who radiate much light and who have much to
give, should protect themselves. Be aware of who or what you give your
energy to. Not everyone is ready to receive what you have to offer. Do
not let your most precious gift be dragged down by people or
organizations who do not match your vibration. Use your male energy for
this purpose.

Step 3 – Realize that mother Earth is your friend

Many hypersensitive people feel resistance towards living on Earth.
This resistance is partly due to the fact that they do not feel at home
in modern western society. The energy of society does not match their
own and they feel alienated by it. They want to leave; they
subconsciously remember their spiritual heritage and long to be ‘home’
again. They want to go back to the peace and harmony of the heavenly
realms, which contrast so sharply with the noise, fear, aggression and
anonymity of present day human society.

Apart from this reason
for feeling resistance towards living on Earth, sensitive people also
have intuitions about what happened in their past lives on Earth. Often
they carry memories within of war, persecution and other forms of
aggression. They remember trying to be and do good on Earth and being
violently rejected for it.

To overcome your resistance to
being here, it’s important to distinguish between the energy of human
society and the energy of Earth itself. To do so, find a beautiful spot
in nature. Go there on a weekday when it’s quiet. Feel the energy
there, the serenity and peace. Open your heart to this place in nature
and feel all the energies present there. Apart from you there are
nature spirits such as fairies and leprechauns, who work closely
together with Earth. Now feel Earth itself. This is the Earth you came
for, the Earth who reaches out to you and who wishes to support you.
Open your heart to her energy and love.

By entering into this
connection with Earth, you are able to truly take your place and shine
your light in this world. You are able to change the world and make it
more beautiful. There’s a place for you on Earth where you feel at
home. This place will become a beacon of light that transforms the world
around you.

Hypersensitive people hide for the world. Highly
sensitive people radiate their light freely into it.

Step 4 –
Use your to become even more sensitive

Your female
energy can make the difference between fearing someone and loving
someone. It enables you to look behind the mask that someone’s putting
on and see their vulnerability. In our hearts we are all good. God is in
everyone’s heart. You can use the female energy within to become even
more sensitive, to use your empathy to really understand what it’s like
to be in the other person’s shoes. Understanding the other from within
can help you put into  perspective their hurtful remarks or offensive
behavior. It may help you let go of it.

This becomes possible
when the male energy inside is strong enough to protect your female
side. When we are hurt by what another person says to us, we are often
not hurt by the words themselves, but by our own oversensitive
interpretation of those words. Often people are not out to get us, it’s
more that they blurt out something which isn’t aimed at you personally.
Your male energy can help you to not take things personally. Your
female energy helps you feel what is really going on in the other
person. By using the female gift of sensitivity, we now see a lot of
lights in this dark world around us. Becoming even more sensitive, we
take a step towards the heart of our fellow humans, which is often
warmer and brighter than we thought. By noticing the light in the heart
of the other, this light will burn stronger.

Becoming even more
sensitive works in two directions: not only do you get a deeper sense
of who the other person is, they also get to know you better. They feel
something sensitive, warm and beautiful in you that they had not noticed
before; by acknowledging the other person, they acknowledge you. This
is how you start to feel at home on Earth.

To be an angel is to
be balanced

Every human being gives and receives. To stay
spiritually and physically healthy, we need to be in equilibrium with
our environment. The flow of giving and the flow of receiving need to
be balanced. The moment we radiate more of our light, make the
transition from hypersensitivity to high sensitivity and become the
angel that we are, the flow of giving increases. We exude a creative and
beautiful light and share it with our environment, often without
knowing it. The energy we put out into the world wants to come back to
us in the form of (physical) abundance.

This causes problems in
many sensitives. Hypersensitive people often do not believe that life
can be beautiful, rich and abundant for hem. They feel it would not be
right, that they are not worth it and so they block the flow of
receiving that wants to come to them. Religious traditions which teach
you that it’s better to give than to receive, or that it is sinful to
enjoy yourself, support this line of thought. Fear and doubt keep out
the natural abundance that wants to come your way.

Be attentive
of this. Check for yourself if you are really open to what the universe
would like to give to you, to all the love that is there for you. As
long as you do not say ‘yes’ to what the universe wants to send your
way, you have not truly said ‘yes’ to yourself. Say a loud and loving
yes to yourself, to all of you. Accepting the flow of receiving in your
life will then become natural for you.
