    Brazen, Boorish, Blaming Narcissistic Spouse

    Brazen, Boorish, Blaming Narcissistic Spouse

    Married to a narcissistic personality you are constantly questioning the truth of your perceptions.
    The narcissist, a master manipulator, takes control of your relationship with him/her. This person is always "playing you." 
    Coming across a prospective partner who is fascinated with you is irresistible. You feel pulled into the narcissist's orbit. 
    Time passes and the mask of the narcissistic partner slips: you are on the receiving end of the narcissist's true self: brazen, boorish, blaming. 
    Sharing your days with a narcissistic partner you are continually in a state of siege, the fight or flight mode. 
    You study the true nature of the narcissistic personality. The puzzle pieces are coalescing. You have clear insight; your priorities are shifting to where they belong: the care and evolution of your authentic self, the renewal of honoring yourself as a valuable unique individual

    Children of Narcissistic Parents Re-Traumatized by Narcissistic Partners

    Children of Narcissistic Parents Re-Traumatized by Narcissistic Partners

    I hear stories from children of narcissists. They speak of the horrors of growing up in their families from hell. 
    Some adult children report that they were treated like servants in their homes. Many were expected to raise the younger ones, becoming child nannies responsible day and night for their care and feeding. 
    Late evenings were punctuated by fierce corrosive verbal combat between narcissistic mom an dad. Nasty words, screams of rage filled your ears as the sounds of this wretchedness carried throughout the house.
    Now as the partner of a narcissistic personality you are again treated like a servant who must obey at this individual's whim and fancy. You are constantly criticized for not measuring up to the narcissist's outrageous standards of perfection. Your sympathetic nervous system, fight or flight is constantly activated. You have chronic insomnia, generalized anxiety and panic. A
    At a special moment you recognize that you can no longer deny your authenticity. You make the decision to separate from the narcissistic spouse, to take the reins in your capable hands and reclaim your unique destiny and purpose. Give yourself tremendous credit for your insights and perseverance, for bringing yourself forward along the pathway of the true self.

    Empaths - Pathways of Recovery from Narcissistic Spouses and Narcississtic Parents

    Empaths - Pathways of Recovery from Narcissistic Spouses and Narcississtic Parents

    Downtime and Rest - You are entitled. 
    Empaths in particular need special time for rest each day. Sit quietly or lie down, whatever works best for you. Be with yourself in solitude. 
    Listen to special music that evokes images, memories, daydreams, works of the imagination. Choose music that is parasympathetic. There are special tunes and passages that etch into your body/mind systems and are healing and restorative.  Go inside the music and become part of it.
    Unedited Writing
    Be free and unjudgmental as you write and loosen the emotional bonds that have held you for so long. As you write you are releasing. There is an opening to oneself that is profound. Unedited writing brings to the surface unremembered memories, repressed feelings and emotions that you can bring forward, accept and understand. This is all a part of compassionate self acceptance. 
    Thank yourself for doing these practices and know that they are always available to you anytime. 
    Appreciate your identity as an empath, a unique authentic self.

    Special Messsge to Empaths Married to Narcissistic Personalities

    Special Messsge to Empaths Married to Narcissistic Personalities

    Empaths are unique individuals; they are highly attuned to the feelings of others, particularly their partners and spouses. I frequently hear from empaths who report that they are treated with disdain, intimidation, blatant lies, transgressions, humiliations by their spouses.
    Empaths and narcissists are on opposite sides of the characterlogical divide: 
    Empaths married to narcissists are driven to physical and emotional exhaustion, chronic insomnia, anxiety and depression.
    You have been under horrible duress on the receiving end of the narcissist's outrageous cruelties for many years and decades. 
    This is your time of awakening, a decision to separate from the narcissistic personality and reclaim your resilient, grounded, creative authentic self!
    Practice daily self care: Get sleep, rest. Do restorative diaphragmatic breathing. Listen to music that is beautiful and meaningful. Do movement and exercise that works for you: gentle yoga poses, quiet walking, stationary bike, gentle chi gong. 
    Spend time with Nature. Activate your creativity. Talk with individuals whom you trust.
    Honor yourself as a strong, intuitive, gifted, grounded, creative empath.
