The most accessible guide to navigating the world as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)—with exercises and strategies for managing sensitivities and developing greater self-love
Are you often told to stop taking things to heart or to toughen up? Do you have a lot of empathy for others? Do you tend to overanalyze things and ‘get stuck’ in your own head? Or become easily overwhelmed and often need to withdraw?

If the answer is yes, you are likely to be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)—and this book will be your guide to embracing your innate sensitivity and accepting your most authentic self. It will empower you to:
• Acknowledge the key qualities and challenges of being an HSP and learn how to recognize the trait as a strength, not a weakness

• Explore a wide range of practical strategies to manage your sensitivity more effectively—from
developing more self-love to coping with over-arousal

• Connect with your spiritual side by exploring past life patterns and accessing inner guidance from spirit guides and angels

• Learn to safely share your amazing qualities of empathy, compassion, creativity, healing, and much more with the world

More often than not, Highly Sensitive People are yearning for acceptance of their trait. When they realize their sensitivity is ‘normal,’ and it's acknowledged in a positive way, a deep sense of relief arises, and they can start to flourish. This groundbreaking study—one of the most accessible books on high sensitivity—does exactly that, offering HSPs the tools they need to fully accept themselves and lead the authentic, fulfilling lives they deserve.

Praise For…

“A ground-breaking self-help book.” The Daily Mail
“This book is a major contribution to the subject of intuitive sensitivity and its relationship to the evolution of human consciousness. It provides an insightful and instructive understanding of this profound subject, and the various other experiences that often accompany it. Filled with a rich assortment of helpful tools, it is a must-read.” —William Meader, author, international lecturer and teacher of esoteric philosophy

“I have known Mel for 17 years and she brings light and energy in all that she does. This book is an extension of that and will bring a huge insight to thousands of people.” —Alan Dudley, retired Principal Officer, HM Prison Service

“Authentic healing is a difficult experiential process, with breakthroughs of joy interspersed with extended times of hard graft and challenge, even more intensified for Highly Sensitive People than for others. Having been just one of Mel’s many teachers, I know that she has long been committed to such a soul-path, and find it hard to imagine anyone who would not benefit from reading her book. She writes inspiringly from deep experience, and can be trusted to convey truth.” —Jen Kershaw, psychotherapist and member of Soul-Voyagers Network

“It took me a long time to see the positive in being a sensitive. But now I consider it the source of my creativity, helping me tune into my clients at a deeper level. This book is exactly what we need: a roadmap to being a HSP. It will help you understand, manage and make the most of the gift of sensitivity.” —Miriam Akhtar MAPP, leading Positive Psychology coach, consultant, trainer and author
