High sensitivity: this is how you purify your heart

High sensitivity: this is how you purify your heart
Life is busy metropolises are exciting and titillating. However, humans are made to live in nature. Especially if you’re highly sensitive, nature helps purify your heart. Living in the city can cause problems for your heart chakra and your well-being. This article explains why.

A high sensation seeker in the city

As a hss , high sensation seeker , I too can get intoxicated by the big cities of the world and lose myself a bit in them. Sometimes I really need that; yes, also as HSP. However, as far as the body is concerned, man is not a city person. If we define the onset of urbanization as the rise of the industrial revolution, people have lived in urban environments for less than 0.01 percent of history.

More than 99.99 percent of the time humans have spent in a natural habitat. Over a period of about six to seven million years, our genetic material has been developed and adapted to trees, plants, grass, and soil, in all kinds of weather conditions.

The gap between city and nature

The gap between the natural environment, to which our bodily functions are adapted, and the highly urbanized and artificial environment in which more and more people live today, is actually huge. This gap is also widening and more and more people worldwide are living in cities. Today, just over 50% of the world’s population lives in cities. The United Nations expects that 70% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Nice for the economy and tourism, but what about our physiology? Can we humans adapt so quickly? What are we losing?

Our body needs nature to maintain its health, get rid of stress hormones, and quickly regain balance. Trees and plants not only provide us with the necessary oxygen but also the perfect environment to regenerate. If you don’t spend enough time in nature, you can no longer recover physically, with the result that negative – orthosympathetic – processes last longer in the body and chronic stress arises.

To walk

As I write this, I am on my way home from a six day seminar in the mountains of Engadin in Switzerland. With sixteen highly sensitive people and two trainers, we have worked hard on various themes, including stress. The group has had the opportunity daily to walk under the supervision and alone, and that is doing well. I myself stay inside most days because in addition to the group lessons I also give individual sessions.

On Friday, the last day before departure home, I send the group participants to the river to ritually say goodbye to old unwanted behavior patterns. What do you leave behind and what do you no longer take with you into your life in the future? Some make boats, others shout above the murmur of the raging torrent, and still, others shed their tears.

I myself walk a bit uphill. I look at the flora and fauna, marvel at the beautiful patterns of flowers and leaves, and breathe in the scent of the plantain and burdock. Involuntarily I start to yawn and yawn. In the space of a few minutes, I yawn at least thirty times. Not just because I’m tired, but to get rid of the negative energy I’ve been attracting unnoticed. I therefore consciously smash my arms through my energy field, pat my body and continue to yawn for a while.

I put my hands in a light stream that makes its way to the mountain stream between grass and the first autumn leaves. From small flat stones I build a cairn in the middle of the stream. After half an hour of intense contact with nature on the banks of the wild mountain stream, I feel clean. All the strange energy is out of me and I feel cleansed.

Abundance of energies

Our primitive ancestors suffered from weather, disease, predator attacks, infant mortality, and fluctuations in the food supply. They did not have a stress-free life, nor did most animals in nature. But they did have nature to keep their balance. When we lived in small tribes in the jungle, we probably saw at most one stranger a month.

That was the right amount for the heart to be in healthy exchange with its environment, allowing the heart to open sufficiently. Now we sometimes see hundreds of strangers a day. We travel with it on train, bus, and tram, we sit next to it on terraces and in restaurants, are constantly confronted with new colleagues, or are in a new class. That excess of energy is impossible for a body to process.

Being alone with your heart

Fewer encounters with strangers do the heart (chakra) good. Perhaps too much value is attached to fun and being together. Isn’t it about time we value being alone again? If you ask the heart, it will agree because it often craves it, especially the heart of the introverted and sensitive person.

It is very healthy to be alone often. You don’t have to feel ashamed or apologize for this. An HSP heart has this hard necessary. You may also be someone who secretly desires to spend more time alone. Preferably do this in an energy-rich nature. A small garden or city park does not provide enough liberating and relieving clean energy. This requires charged and healthy forests and fields.

Places where as little as possible has been sprayed, and where nature is still untouched and wild. Walking or meditating alone is often more enriching than together. Consciously get rid of negative energy that you have attracted (from others) by arousing your yawn reflex. The jaw and throat are closely related to the cleansing process. It helps you develop the strength of a calm heart and get rid of attracted negative energies.
