How to Grow A Visionary:
The Highly Sensitive Child – A Practical Every Day Survival Guide
Who are our highly sensitive children? Might they be visionaries? This is the question I ask myself every morning. Why does my son fall to the floor with fatigue and a low mood if we can’t find the ‘right’ thing to do? Why is my son so sound sensitive that I sometimes don’t dare speak but when he is having fun and in his ‘zone’ he hardly seems to be aware of external stimulus at all? Why does my son notice every single pigeon that enters our garden and stand entranced by their beauty and their softness but screams if a fly buzzes in his ear? Why does he come alive when he is telling his story in music, movement, words and art but can’t bear the thought of doing anything by the book, speaking other people’s words or competing with others?
For the last 2 years I have been digging deep into these questions having already dug deep to work with myself over the previous 14 years. I have birthed my thoughts, ideas and insights into this book ‘How to Grow a Visionary’ My hope is that it answers some of the questions, conundrums and contradictions you may experience in your life.
You may find it helpful if your child has been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, SPD, depression, anxiety or fatigue as well as just Highly Sensitive. It is a soulful yet down-to-earth look at high sensitivity.
