Atypical Spectral Sensitivity and Autism

As a visionary, my daily experience is seeing mine and other people’s energy and this gives me clues as to what might be going on at a deeper level in myself and with other people. I have been observing people’s energy for 20 years now and I feel particularly drawn to observe the energy of the more highly sensitive people in the world. In this, I include those with ADD, ADHD and autism.

I have seen the same pattern over and over again in more sensitive people. The pattern I see is low energy in a person’s legs, low energy around a person’s heart but a lot of energy around a person’s head, neck and shoulders. I have wondered what this means. Why is a person not feeling their heart energy or their grounded energy?

After studying my reaction to the light in some depth over the last 3 years, I now believe I have some answers. We need to perceive enough red light to feel grounded. We need to perceive enough yellow light to feel emotionally connected. If we don’t perceive enough red and/or yellow light, it changes who we are. With poor perception of red light, we don’t feel anchored and struggle to feel safe. This is why we become anxious and change feels scary. With poor perception of yellow light, we feel less emotionally connected than others. We can still feel but we struggle to feel deeply. We need greater intensity to feel enough and then the greater intensity feels too much because we are not grounded. So we seek a lot of intensity in our thoughts, which explains the energy I see around people’s heads. I believe this is related our perception of blue and violet light. We become adept at sorting through concepts and ideas and we enjoy making connections with our thinking because we are struggling to make connections emotionally. We use ideas and concepts like hugs. We replay actions and thoughts because they are comforting to us. It is our way of connection.

I speak as if I am autistic but I am not. I do have atypical spectral sensitivity, though, and know how it feels to struggle with connection.

Being Highly Sensitive challenges us to connect with ourselves and our environment in a way that is uniquely right just for us.

Why Visionaries Don’t Have Friends – Just Meaningful Encounters

We’re not good every day givers as we are always saving some of our energy for our big plan – our vision

The muse might turn up and tell us to do something, say something or go somewhere which is tricky when you have arranged a coffee with someone and are required to do chit chat!

We tend to be one tracked. We don’t have that much energy to talk about things that are not in some way related to our vision.

We’re not good at hanging out OUT as we tend to be sensitive to everything. Take us out to a shopping mall and all the sights, sounds and smells will quickly become too much. Take us out for a walk and we may find the place too lonely or not like the sound of the wind! Yes, it can be that difficult!

Intensity is our only state and we are only really happy if we feel a lot of energy in a conversation or an activity. Once we feel the energy go down we are miserable and just want out!

So all in all we’re not too good at friendship. People can be intrigued by us for a while but when all the above kicks in we don’t see them for dust!

However we are excellent at meaningful encounters.
