Many people go through life as a sensitive empath, wondering why they are so misunderstood. They feel as though they have never fit in well with others. They may have psychic abilities, such as clairvoyance, telekinesis, or lucid dreams. They may have difficulties with sensory overload, or may even be diagnosed as having sensory processing disorder. These people are often overwhelmed when they are exposed to noise, fluorescent lights, people, physical touch, or chaotic environments. They may shy away from social interaction, confused on how to interpret and interact with other people.
What many of these people don't realize is that they are indeed special, but not necessarily special education. They are often misconstrued as being naughty, weak, spirited, learning disabled, or stubborn as children. They are difficult to control by the adults around them. They are often punished without understanding really why they are being punished. They might run in front of cars or running away from their parents, often tempting fate. They might even experience near-death experiences or mysterious illnesses that other people cannot seem to diagnose or pinpoint. These children often grow into adulthood, confused about their place in the world.
Children who fit these descriptions are often referred to as "Indigo children." They are talented, spirited, and special in ways that other children are not. They stick out like a sore thumb because they are not at all like other children. They are extremely unique in how they interact with other and interact with the world. They are often exquisitely sensitive because they have advanced empathy. They are able to see, hear, intuit, and feel things that other children and adults are never able to feel.
