Top Ten Reasons
to Have a HSP Dyad Partnership
by Jacquelyn Strickland, LPC

The following list comes from personal experience and was co-created with my special HSP friend and personal HSP Dyad Partner, Molly Sheahan, who many of you met at the Sequoia HSP Gathering Retreat in the fall of 2004 and also at the Colorado HSP Gathering Retreat in the fall of 2007. Thank you Molly!

  1. The safety of the relationship provides us with a forum within which to "come out."
  2. It provides us with validation and acknowledgment - allowing us to be seen and heard.
  3. It relieves pressure and tension from not being authentically seen or heard in our daily lives.
  4. It creates an avenue for fuller self-expression of our Spirit, including our emotions, imaginations, and perceptions, often leading us to wonderful (inner) places and (outer) possibilities never before revealed.
  5. It provides us a place to share our vivid experiences of the world around us.
  6. It focuses on our strengths, opens our heart and infuses us with a sacred innocence and joy.
  7. It helps us move beyond blind faith to a feeling of "faith like prayers just heard."
  8. It can take the pressure off others, especially our non-HSP partners or friends, who may find it tiring to go the depths we naturally find energizing, nurturing and supportive.
  9. It can keep us focused on what really matters and away from irrelevant details which can ultimately drain our energy.
  10. It can provide us with a mirror which allows us to fully see, hear and feel our own energies which can then serve as clarification for the depth of our perceptions.

I welcome your questions and comments and you are invited to join me in a special telelclass on Wednesday, March 5, 2008. We will apportion our time equally between the Top Ten Ways for HSP Self Care and The HSP Dyad Partnership.
