Do you ever feel like you’re too much?
Too emotional? Too analytical? Too intense? Too sensitive?
And at the same time, you sometimes feel like you are not enough.
The truth is half the time you feel like you’ve been shot out of a cannon, you’re so wired you just can’t seem to stop, the rest of the time you crash so hard you’re not good for much of anything.
You’ve tried a bunch of approaches, but nothing seems to make a difference right away so you give up quickly.
Your loved ones may say you’re overreacting, but for you life really is that intense.
So let me ask you,
Is this you…
When you’re working it’s go, go, go but the second you have a break you collapse from exhaustion, feeling like a slug.
You have this weird ability to focus on certain things but you can get so lost in your work that you completely lose track of your basic needs (even going to the bathroom!)
You feel stifled creatively, since you got a “real” job or became a parent, you’ve been feeling trapped because you never have time to do the creative work you crave.
- And speaking of that “real” job, you got into it because you wanted to make a difference but you notice there’s a lot of stuff about the work that feels meaningless — endless paperwork, writing useless reports and all those budget meetings.
You set ridiculously high standards for yourself (in fact other people are often intimidated by you) but you always seem to fall short — it just seems that everybody else is so much more “together” than you.
If you relate, you’re probably a Highly Excitable Person. Much like high sensitivity, excitability is often found in gifted and neurodivergent adults.
So what do I mean by highly excitable? Highly excitable people have an increased ability to perceive and respond to their environment. In other words……
You pick up on things that other people don’t and respond more intensely than the average Joe.
People may describe you as dynamic, intense, sensitive, fiery, restless, passionate or spirited, but your intensity can also cause stress related health issues and/or anxiety and make it difficult to find others who understand.
The Good News Is…
You’re greatest excesses are often your greatest assets!
When you harness the power of your excitability, you can achieve epic things!
Highly Excitable People have the unique ability to (depending on your type of excitability)…
… form deep connections with other people and living things.
… pick up on tiny nuances in their environment.
… use their dynamic energy to bring people together.
… be able to think things through to create brilliant connections .
… uncover unique angles and perspectives that solve problems and introduce new ways of thinking.
The Truth Is Anyone Who Has Achieved Anything Great Is Probably Highly Excitable In One Of The Five Areas.
Here are some Highly Excitable People throughout history:
Jane Goodall (Emotional)
Ansel Adams (Sensual)
Robin Williams (Psychomotor)
Albert Einstein (Intellectual)
Walt Disney (Imaginational)
You Can Use Your Own Power For Good!
Getting home from a full day of work and having the energy to call up a friend and meet her for dinner.
Knowing how to handle the everyday stress of life — family visits, temper tantrums, employee evaluations, traffic jams — without crumpling up in a ball (or screaming back).
Have a routine in your life that works, so you write every day, make sure to take a walk, drink your water, etc. but know how to adapt when you need to.
Having a clear sense of “having something special to offer” as opposed to always wondered why you’re the one who is always so sick, wired and tired.
Yes it really is possible!
My mission is to help Highly Excitable people use their fire without getting burned or burned out by connecting with their unique powers, balance their energy and feel a sense of accomplishment in their life.
Who AM I and How Do I Know This?
Hi, I’m Aurora Remember Holtzman
After years of feeling “too much” (too intense, too sensitive, too emotional, too scattered and too exhausted), I finally realized that intensity, in the form of excitability, is the source of my greatest power. Now instead of beating myself up about not measuring up to my own self-imposed standards, I’m on a mission to help people embrace their intensity and use their fire without getting burned!
That’s why I created…
Ignite Your Power!
… a 12 part course and community to help use your intensity to connect with your unique strengths, balance your energy and feel a sense of accomplishment in your life!
STEP ONE: STOP And Get Crystal Clear.
Observe how Excitability shows up in your life where you may not have been conscious of it or where you may have been labelling it a fault. Then learn how this unique combination of traits can reveal your hidden talents and abilities.
Examine how you spend your time each day and how this impacts your energy so that you can learn strategies to maximize your time, uncover your priorities, and feel better by conserving your energy where you need to so you can use it for what’s important and not max out too soon.
STEP TWO: THINK to clarify your priorities to better meet your own needs.
Get clear on your own sense of purpose so that your actions can stay in line with your priorities and you don’t waste your time on things that feel urgent, but aren’t really important in the scheme of things.
Explore effective ways to work towards your priorities while making sure that you’re taking care of your own needs in a way that allows you to take care of the important people in your life.
STEP THREE: ACT By Finding Strategies And Routines That Work For You.
Leverage the power of routine, rituals and automatization to work towards your priorities in simple yet powerful ways that feel good and, at the end of the day, leave you with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Develop strategies and systems that allow you to bounce back when life throws you a curveball so that you can continuously maintain to balance your energy and harness your superpowers in a way that feels good without worrying about giving up.
STEP FOUR: REQUEST Support To Help You Stay On Track.
Learn effective compassionate communication (NVC) strategies to help you get the support that you need, and say no when it’s not in line with your deepest values and needs so that you can focus on what’s important.
Maintain a support network of community who can support you as you move forward together.

What is the Investment?

How is this program different?
There are many programs out there that focus on goal setting, self-care, finding your purpose and time management. My program is different because it gets at the core of the problem that makes all of those things difficult.
You’re Highly Sensitive, so you need more self-care than others…
… BUT you are also highly motivated to make a difference in the world and can push yourself past your own limits.
My program helps you find balance between the two without giving up on one part or the other.
You can listen to the first lesson free on the Embracing Intensity Podcast, and join the community for the full discussion and lessons.
Important: If you do nothing…
… You’ll continue the cycle of sprinting then crashing.
… You’ll keep spending time on the urgent things that aren’t so important in the grand scheme of things.
… You’ll keep wondering what’s wrong with you instead of seeing what’s really right!
Use your fire without getting burned!
Connect with your unique powers, balance your energy and feel a sense of accomplishment in your life.
