I have seen many clients with similar dispositions, who experience the world in so much detail, that it is almost overwhelming. They can find a song touching their inner being and you can see them become elated when finding a lost puzzle piece. If ignorance is bliss, then being exposed to and affected by all the world has to offer could often lead to misery. And, in my opinion, it can turn the world into an extraordinary and amazing, but also cruel and harsh place. Often people experiencing the world in this manner seek ways to dull it, i.e. secluding themselves in their homes, numbing themselves with drugs and alcohol or ultimately taking their own lives*.
So, is this then a catch 22 situation? Is life either boring and monotonous or overexposed and unfathomable?
No! It is not. There are many individuals who have mastered the art of allowing life’s excess energy to flow through them. Creating the most beautiful paintings, poetry, music, relationships, buildings, movies, apps, homes, moments, magic. Translating the world into tangible artefacts for all to appreciate. Balancing the tones, redirecting the flow and untangling some lines and creating a less monotonous world for the rest of humankind.
If you lean towards the boring side, support those translating the world for you. If you tend to be more exposed, start translating.
We’re ready to listen, watch and be touched.
