High Sensitivity Helpsheet
Some people have high sensitivity i.e. being unusually affected or (quickly) becoming unwell with certain external influences. Sometimes, if there is a history of high sensitivity, the individual may also be sensitive to Source Resonances and may benefit from a more cautious approach to prescribing.
Note: Although there have been a few instances of this in the past, we are revising the way in which the Source Resonances are created and will run trials to look into this in due course.
The following Screening Questions can help with identifying sensitive individuals.
Do you consider yourself to have high sensitivity?
If so, what does this mean to you and what symptoms do you experience that you associate with high sensitivity?
Specifically, do you have a history of high sensitivity with any of the following items?
a) Sound, light, busy environments, social situations (sensory overload)
b) Foods (e.g. gluten, caffeine, sugar, dairy), chemical toxins, EMF (Electro-magnetic frequencies) e.g. mobile phone signals and wi-fi, bites, stings, nutritional supplements?
c) Prescription drugs (e.g. allergy to antibiotics) or recreational/street drugs (including alcohol)?
d) Healing therapies (susceptibility to aggravations) and meditative practices (for example feeling ungrounded afterwards, or finding it hard to re-engage with daily life)?
If relevant, when you have a strong sensitivity reaction where would you rate it, from 0 to 10 (where 10 is extremely strong)?
This information can provide a baseline for reference when prescribing for people with high sensitivity.
Strategies for working with high sensitivity
When using Resonances with high sensitivity individuals it is important:
- to use once, watch and wait; ;
- to observe responses carefully;
- for the individual to listen to their sense of how to proceed.
Here are some ideas of how to build up gradually when using the Resonances. The client and practitioner may be able to assess together what level to start with:
- Think of, or read the name of the resonance, breathing and consciously inviting it in.
- Bring up the personalised audio page and read the title.
- Play the audio on mute initially. (This means you first turn off the volume on your computer or device, then bring up the resonance link, press 'play' and tune in to the title on the screen and an awareness of your body and energy field. Although 'listening' on mute may seem strange, it is can be a helpful step for those with high sensitivity.)
- Listen to one second of the sound resonance. Gradually adjust the time. With this, it is helpful for the individual to tune in to their felt experience of listening to the audio. As soon as there is a thought that this may be enough, that is the time to stop. With high sensitivity it is generally helpful to take it slowly and gently rather than push the pace. If a few seconds on mute is strong enough for the individual, then just stick with that.
- Play the audio on low volume.
- Listen briefly several times a day.
- Audios can also be played directly to the area of the body affected, using headphones placed on the body.
Audios can be particularly suitable for those with high sensitivity.For liquid/pill Resonances:
- Imagine holding the bottle.
- Imagine taking a drop.
- Hold paper with name of resonance on it, breathing and consciously inviting it in.
- Look at bottle, while consciously connecting with it/inviting it in.
- Hold bottle.
- Open lid and sniff, while holding bottle.
- Put a drop or pill in a glass of water, stir and dip your finger in briefly - wipe dry.
- Put a drop or pill in a glass of water, stir and place one drop on skin
- Place one drop from bottle onto skin, or hold between two fingers briefly.
- Take one drop by mouth and wait a week.
Observe carefully. See the Self-help Usage Instructions or, for homeopaths, prescribing recommendations. The Source Medicine ABC page has additional practitioner recommendations for working with clients with high sensitivity or complex conditions, including the use of the SR System Balancers.
The use of a pendulum, kinesiology or other techniques to check suitabiltiy of prescriptions, frequency, length of audio etc. can be helpful.
