    Narcissism & Victimization. Tips on stopping this buzzkill in any relationship.

    in Self Help

    Narcissism & Victimization may be interchangeable in some cases, and does it matter which label you give? I mean they both spell dysfunction and toxicity for most people. How much narcissism is a good thing? Wait, what? The word narcissism does not necessarily mean it's time for a scythe and black hood.....sometimes it is an indication of both people involved in the situation, after all we do reflect one another (whether we like it or not). And if the benefit is to learn love yourself more, so you end up free from victimization, then it can be a good thing....as the bottom line is to a certain degree all human beings are narcissists.


    So what's the problem?


    Most of us do not like the lessons we go through in life that are different than the perfect picture in our heads, but most of us have no clue that we don't act in ways that support the 'perfect picture' in our heads. Good times, right? And many of us were brought up in less than stellar environments where our expectations of others were shaped. Many of us do not realize the depth of what our beliefs and patterns do in terms of our choices, so we end up in the 'imperfect' picture with someone who we consider a narcissist (because they won't give us what we want or have no clue to our feelings) and we're the victim. Or vice versa, or both at the same time.


    Find out what I am talking about and what you can do about it in your own life.

    Is Narcissism Psychological Viagra? Join Andrea Schneider and Kristin Walker

    in Psychology

    One of the most damaging psychological mechanisms a narcissist may use in his/her tormented tool chest is sex.


    THE PROMISE OF IT


    THE MECHANICAL ACTION OF IT


    THE WITHHOLDING OF IT


    We carefully use the word sex in relation to what happens because, to the narcissist, the beautiful act of making love is an impossibility. Sex is one of their most powerful weapons of your mass destruction. If you are a highly-empathic person with an abundance of compassion, an intoxicating imagination, and issues around appropriate boundaries, you are the perfect meal for the emotional impotence of a narcissist.


    On this episode of Mental Health News Radio the author and counselor, Andrea Schneider, joins host Kristin Walker to discuss the relationship between narcissism and sex.  In her book, Soul Vampires: Reclaiming Your Lifeblood After Narcissistic Abuse, Andrea takes readers on a journey through the phases of the romantic journey with a narcissist.  She shares her expertise with us on the show and in co-writing the blog article to accompany this highly charged subject.  You won't want to miss the full blog article HERE.

    #249 Guest Shirley B and “8” Attunements, Activations and the Narcissism

    in Spirituality

    Please join Dave the Mystic on Monday, November 9th at 8PM MST with returning guest Shirley B.  Dave and Shirley will discuss the new process of the “8” Attunements and “I Am” Divine Activations with respect to the culture of narcissism which has permeated generations of historical behavior that apply to us today. We will talk about how it has thrived in religions, wars and the need to control, which can mutate the concept of God into an inverted Narcissist that upholds a God of Narcissistic qualities that really has nothing to do with the true unconditional loving God of the “I AM” . We will be doing the Zero point attunement's for several callers in the latter part of the show that help neutralize the consciousness of narcissism which brings in the connection of the God “I AM” Presence back into your own personal connection.


    Shirley is an intuitive reader, a medium and an energy worker.  It is always a pleasure to have her on the show.  She reads and works with each individual as a part of the collective consciousness. She has been doing readings for 15 years and is clairvoyant and clairaudient. Shirley works with intuitive information, past lives, generational miasmas, crossovers, energy clearances, subconscious programming and the understanding of spiritual roots. She is able to facilitate enhancements. Her goal is to give each individual the tools to work with their own ascension. She has been a Certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner for two years. Her approach is one of transformation to create mapping within the Spiritual, Physical and Emotional Bodies that lead to increased consciousness, abundance and awakening to our true selves.


    Shirley lives in the Denver area and can be reached by email at poet444@gmail.com


    Thank you and Blessings!

    Rethinking Narcissism The Bad-and Surprising Good-About Feeling Special

    in Self Help

    RETHINKING NARCISSISM


    Friday, Oct. 16 @ 1pm (CST) I have the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Craig Malkin, Harvard Medical School psychologist and Huffington Post blogger as he addresses the "narcissism epidemic," by illuminating the spectrum of narcissism, identifying ways to control the trait, and explaining how too little of it may be a bad thing.


    "What is narcissism?" The word "narcissist" seems to mean something different every time it's uttered. People hurl the word as insult at anyone who offends them. It's become so ubiquitous, in fact, that it's lost any clear meaning. The only certainty these days is that it's bad to be a narcissist—really bad—inspiring the same kind of roiling queasiness we feel when we hear the words sexist or racist. That's especially troubling news for millennials, the people born after 1980, who've been branded the "most narcissistic generation ever."


    In Rethinking Narcissism readers will learn that there's far more to narcissism than meets the eye.. The truth is that we all fall on a spectrum somewhere between utter selflessness on the one side, and arrogance and grandiosity on the other. Malkin deconstructs healthy from unhealthy narcissism and offers clear, step-by-step guidance on how to promote healthy narcissism in our partners, our children, and ourselves.


    Join us for a very interesting radio show


    I'll talk to you then, 
    M

    Narcissism: The Spirit of Anti-christ and his children

    in Christianity

    As I ponder the addiction of people wanting to capture the perfect selfie picture mainly with their cell phones and social media sites such as: Facebook and instagram, I begin to see a trend of people uploading new pictures of themselves in their bathrooms, bedroom, restaurant, work, school, and yes, even church. The scripture 2 Timothy chapter 3 verse 1 comes to mind which says " In the last days perilous(dangerous) times shall come, men shall be lovers of their ownselves." I was thinking Paul how is extremely dangerous times have to do with people being lovers of their ownselves? Then the light bulb went off that the antichrist will be self consumed to the point that people only become a means to the end goal for him cause he is completely possessed by lucifer himself which is completely selfish and self centered, this is narcissism in its fulness. So as we begin this journey we will begin to find out is all this selfie picture taking and detailing every moment of your life as innoncent as it seems on the surface or is there another force or inspiration behind it

    Part 4 of Narcissism Series (Final)

    in Spirituality

    Final topics on narcissism tonight:


    The transgender narcissist, how to address our narcissistic youth today & tomorrow - is there a way to prevent their enablement within the family dynamic and social circles, narcissistic parents and the undercover narcissist (the co-dependent narc) who prefers to be with narcissistic people.


    We want people aware of the depths of narcissistic behaviors because we believe that awareness of these traits empower people to understand how to prevent becoming enablers and victims. In turn we hope people's awareness of narcissistic traits (which we all practice in some form), create a conscious accountability for productive change and possibly early intervention for the narcissist. 


    1 Corinthians 13:4-7New International Version (NIV)

     

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Dr. Craig Malkin debuts Rethinking Narcissism

    in Lifestyle

    “What is Narcissism?” is one of the fastest-rising searches on Google, and articles on the topic routinely go viral. Yet the word “narcissism” seems to mean something different every time it’s uttered. In fact, the more it’s slung about, the more slippery its true meaning becomes. The only certainty, it would seem, is that it’s bad to be a narcissist—really bad. for millennials, been branded “the most narcissistic generation ever.”


    In RETHINKING NARCISSISM (HarperWave – on sale July 7), Dr. Craig Malkin—a Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychologist with more than two decades of clinical experience—offers a radically new model for understanding this often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a spectrum of self-importance— and everyone falls somewhere on the scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance.


    Yet there are also those who live at the lower end of the spectrum—termed “echoists” by Dr. Malkin.
    Drawing on his own research as well as the latest findings in psychology, Dr. Malkin explains why it’s essential to embrace some degree of narcissism in order to maintain a healthy sense of self-worth. Using a new diagnostic tool—the Narcissism Test—Dr. Malkin guides readers through the process of measuring.


    Dr. Craig Malkin is an author, clinical psychologist, and Instructor of Psychology for Harvard Medical School with two decades of experience helping individuals, couples, and families. His insights on relationships have been appeared in Psychology Today, Marie Claire, and Women’s and Men’s Health mags.
