In the end, the best way to make truly sustainable choices is through learning how to understand our (complex) HSP intuition (which is not as clear-cut as the pop-spirituality guru’s seem to promote).

Activate your HSP Spiritual Gifts Gently

March 5, 2013

Many HSPs have (latent) spiritual gifts. These are not something to be afraid of.
