Highly sensitive persons with an Excessive (Extra) Soul

Fyodor Dostoevsky quote: Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep...

Some people are born with an excessive -or extra- soul.

This does not allow them to integrate within a system that asks people to repress their soul in order to adjust themselves to the greater system.

Most people don’t find integration within a system too difficult, but for them it is almost impossible.

It is a great gift, but because they live in a soulless society – they find it difficult to fit, to find their place, to belong, to settle down.

It actually becomes a heavy weight for them.

The Excessive Soul calls for companion, compassion and space from those who possess an ordinary soul.  

The question for them is: What to do with their Excessive Soul? Being an artist or religious is one way, belonging to a spiritual sect is another, or choosing alternative medicine. If they don’t find a space that gives a home to their Excessive Soul- they are lost and not only that: They have to carry the stigma for it.

(People who are at base with an Extra Soul – could become: Authors, philosophers, poets, essay writers, and artists).

They have no other option than finding their own particular way to actualize their particular Extra-Soul, with as little damage from the outside on the way – (as much as possible).


„The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them. “

— Charles Bukowski, Book Tales of Ordinary Madness

“She is quite the raspy soul.
Too wild to tame.
Too exquisite to be ordinary.”

Adrian Michael

”You are a rare soul,
which still beholds,
a lot of love,
despite of being,
ridden with betrayals.
And that’s what makes you,
breathtakingly beautiful.”

Siddhi Khandagale
