For the Sensitive Souls

by Jennifer on October 21, 2012

Saturday, September 20th, 2012

I want you to know that I know what it is like…always standing on the fresh edge of a cliff.  Always standing between the worlds.  Always waiting for the subtle signs about when to hold on, knuckles gripped, until the right moment to let go, completely and without restraint.  I know what it is like to have to be very good at both.  To have to be, not for actual survival, but simply because you are a person who does not avoid feeling…who does not or cannot.

You can’t tell by looking at us…we who are this sensitive…but we are as alien in a land of numbness like this world still mostly is, as we would be if we had big green heads or three eyes.  Yes, most people can’t see it, just like most people can’t see nymphs and fairies, but we live in an entirely different world.  We are fully alive, we lean in even when it hurts because we know there is some treasure there we will never find if we avoid it, everything is vivid for us.  We are technicolor in a world still mostly viewed in black and white.  There are other dimensions and landscapes for us, and sometimes we are alone in them because no one else wants to see them yet.

These gifts once made us Oracles…conduits between the land of the seen and that of the unseen…but not primarily because we could have visions or hear voices.  That was secondary to, and actually a result of, being able to deeply feel.  There is nothing that takes more courage, nothing that has a higher cost, and nothing else that has greater rewards than any cost could touch.  For only when we deeply feel can we find our truest knowing and remain connected to it, letting us be guided through life in the most natural and authentic way possible.  Only then can we really know we are instruments of love, and what that really means.

These gifts of sensitivity and feeling still make us Oracles.  And there is only one threshold we must cross to more consciously become this Oracle that we are…to fully access this knowing.  The crossing of this threshold marks the difference between being tossed about on an ocean of hypersensitivity, or in a similarly lost way gripping the wheel of our vessel of numbness, compasses spinning…and the grace of a walk through life embodying our true power.  That walk of grace might see us pass from the underworld to the heavenly bliss and back again many times, but with power and wholeness and triumph.  All is perfect either way and only leading us back to ourselves ultimately, but the crossing of that threshold is like the discovery of stars in a once-dark night.  You are never the same.  You become an awakened Oracle present on the earth once again, you become one of the Oracles who are returning.

This threshold that you cross is your fear that you are not enough, or that you have done wrong that would keep you from living a life of beauty and joy.  It is a fear that you do not deserve or somehow have not earned the gifts of pure power that have always been yours.  It is a fear of being alone, of being too much, of being outcast or worse.  It is a fear born at the time when you were first threatened for being too beautiful.  The truth is every single one of us is stunningly beautiful when we allow ourselves to really be seen.  I know that it can be so bad, that fear, that we’d rather live a half-life than ever face it.  But it is only a shadow cast by something precious you are about to reclaim, that happens to look scary from where you are standing.  When you are ready, though you may feel like you are facing your death, you can just walk right through.

I just want you to know that I understand.  You see, we once had a world that was structured to support these gifts.  A world that was designed to allow us to experience the fullness of our emotion and sensation with relish and abandon.  Since there is no longer that context, and indeed a structure that discourages us from nourishing these abilities instead, we are the brave pioneers on the frontier of feeling, willing to go where others won’t and create a new way of being again.  I want you to know that I know how hard it can be to do that…to feel so much and some days, when having been rather battered by the waves, to want to get out of the water all together like the other land-dwellers.  To stray away from the cliffs and back into the plains where the fruits aren’t as sweet and to speak of less important things with people who don’t need to speak of anything else.

But you, bright star…you are a miracle with the power to completely shift this planet and do so with the power of your own joy.  You can be the richest soul, because you have claimed the inner treasure others are unwilling to seek or accept.  You can be, in your immodest thrill, an example to others when the fruits dry up everywhere else and they finally find themselves on the cliff-sides anyway.  By then you will be so weathered by the storm that the wind won’t even knock you down when it picks up, and you will use its sway to lift you as you add flowers to your basket…for you will have built a home there.  You will know where it is warm, and how to go into the very center of your being to touch your fire.

You will still rise and fall on the waves sometimes, but you will carry grace in your heart and you will trust the dark times as you do the light.  And they will both have something to show you, and something to give you.  And you will know how to nurture yourself when the fall is sharp and the night is hard, and you will be found even when you are lost.  You will not be afraid to be lost.  You will surrender and you will never lose.

So, I am writing today to say, hold on, take faith, all is for the good…even if it seems it couldn’t be.  Even if you think you are going crazy and the upcoming transformational shifts are making you want to take off into the night and make you forget your name, but you can’t move…cross the threshold anyway…and eventually the storm will let up for the first time in a while…and you will see the new day you were always heading for.  And then, storm or sunshine, you will know.  And you will carry the treasure of your knowing and remembering with you again, and forever…

Love, Jennifer

Oh, Jennifer, as always your words slide into my heart and move to enliven every cell into that state of remembering…and it is always at just the right moment…and it is always juicy and delicious. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my tangled, messy, raw, and wonderful heart and soul for handing us all a lantern with which to find our way back to ourselves. So much love to you!

This is a touching caress for the weary parts of self…those parts worn out from just as you describe…Feeling part of a larger ‘body’ of other sensitives bolsters my spirit. Thank you Jennifer and everyONE shining away ‘out there’, acknowledged or still unseen. I feel you.

glories of the heart to you, dear sister soul… She who cries aloud in all weathers, all dimensions, all aspects of BEINGness ‘listen’! And make your home within the winds and tides. Another blessing, dear Jennifer. Thank you. ~Mary

This is beautiful and comes to me at a time in my life when I’m wondering how to start standing on the edge of the cliff again. My friend Laurel Lyons (in Sedona) linked to this from her fb page, so now I’m sharing it as well. Would it be okay for me to post this on my deviantArt site as well? Then too, I think a lot of people at Aeclectic Tarot would find it as beautiful and inspiring as I do. I would like to copy a portion of it to post, then add a link back to your page. Would this be okay?


Jennifer November 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Hello BarnOwl!

Yes it is perfectly fine to re-post part of Jennifer’s writing with credit given and a link back to her site…thank you for your thoughtful respect! So glad you enjoyed!

I am not sure what made me go back to my inbox and look this up, but I did. It speaks to me in a way that brings me to tears in my cubicle at work, and starts to explain everything that I have been feeling of late. But what to do now? And there is still a part of me that refuses to buy it. These ideas and this writing are not of my world.


Jennifer November 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Thank you for this beautiful sharing Kim, and my best recommendation, rather than feeling like you have to dive in too far, too fast, would be to keep reading the writings on the site (the blog has nearly 200 entries) and/or consider Jennifer’s book, “The Oracle Within” to get a feeling for the heart behind much of what Jennifer shares. ( Let the writings just continue to touch you and soon you will feel more sure about what it all means and how it fits in your world. All of Jennifer’s writings are at or

Just as touching and timely this time around and I find myself holding onto the truth and light in the words as if for dear life. Thank you, sweet Jennifer, I needed this…. <3
