Definition: responsiveness to external stimuli; the faculty of sensation; the ability to respond to physical stimuli or to register small physical amounts or differences; sensitivity to emotional feelings of self and other; the ability to respond to affective changes in one’s interpersonal environment.
When you pull this card you may be more perceptive, receptive and responsive to what is happening around you or within you. Your five senses - your perceptual abilities – and perhaps more importantly, your “sixth sense”, or intuitive faculty, may be heightened beyond the normal range, and you may be able to sense more subtle realms.
When a person has heightened ‘unconscious awareness’ it may be a recipe for feeling a little “crazy”, for one’s perceptions are not easily validated. Some people have such strong sensitivity to others that they take on their emotional or physical pain. They are often referred to as “empaths”. You may be an empath, and your empathic abilities may be heightened now.
Trusting your senses is primary. However, what you are sensing may be subtle, so it is important to tune in to your center, and seek more clarity about what you are sensing and what you are responding to. From this “still point” you will be better able to differentiate between your sensitivity and your personal response. You have entered into reactivity when external events, situations, or people activate a strong emotional response that dominates your feelings and clouds your ability to see clearly. This does not discount what you are sensing. At these times it is important to carefully filter, identify and separate your personal emotional responses to help provide clarity.
How do you experience your sensitivity? Do you use your sensitivity to navigate through the world? Do you find yourself overwhelmed by strong emotional undercurrents? How do you determine when your sensitivity is over activating your own emotional charges?

Every week I shuffle and draw a card to write about and represent the week ahead. My only rule is that if I draw one that I have already written about, I draw another. In this way I am using the spirit of the cards themselves. Should you wish to view the whole deck vislt www.fuzionhealingarts.com/products, or youtube
