Projection is a primitive defense mechanism used by the covert narcissist. It is ejected out onto his victims, especially in his inner circle - spouses, ex-spouses, children, family members.

I want to speak with you about the meaning of childhood trauma and how to heal. Childhood trauma has a depth and global quality. It takes over the mind, body and spirit.
Childhood trauma is gut-wrenching, intolerable and overwhelming. It has a never-ending quality. You feel doomed, lost, expendable, helpless and hopeless.
Dr. Van der Kolk quote: "In my practice I begin the process by helping my patients to first notice and then describe the feelings in their bodies, the physical sensations beneath the emotions...I help them become aware of their breath, their gestures and movements."
The practice of restorative basic yoga poses using the breath to calm the nervous system and to remain I the present moment is the beginning of the healing process.
Another aspect to healing from trauma is finding individual we can trust.
Listening to your special calming, inspiring music is a parasympathetic experience that is a significant part of your healing from childhood trauma.
Moving and dancing to your music is restorative and transformative to your healing from childhood trauma.

Narcissists these days are getting away with private and public outrages and cruelties. We are surrounded by them. They are covert, overt and everything in-between. Beneath the thin veneer of their many false selves is an ignominious piece of work - filled with delusional self entitlement, raw aggression and lack of conscience.
Narcissists plot in secret how they will take another person down, especially if they perceive that the individual is blocking their immediate goals of money, influence and power.
As long as they reach their goal of possessing the person of the moment, that is their primary focus.
For the narcissist there are no rules, no mercy, no kindness, no civility, no core of humanity. So often the narcissist has others in his pockets feeling off the ego gratifications. The gist, promises, lifestyles, the flash, seductions, all the shiny objects that are designed for you to acquiesce your heart, mind and soul to them.
You have come to a time of truth and reckoning. You now know the true nature of the narcissistic personality. This is a very significant series of events.
You are ready to thrive and move forward toward recovery, restoration and transformation. Put yourself first each day with self care practices: sleep and rest that you need and deserve, nourishing food that keeps you healthy and invigorated, movement and exercise that appeals to you, creative practices like unedited, spontaneous writing. You are persevering, growing and evolving each day.

The covert narcissist's primary goal in life is to obtain maximum ego supplies: praise, adulation, worldly power, wealth, social prominence. He/she is always on the offensive, plotting, planning and scheming his way through every relationship.
The covert's ultimate goal is to break you down piece by piece. Their dark cynical moves are designed to make you question the integrity of your thinking processes, the validity of your emotions, forcing you to doubt yourself, to feel staggering shame and weakness. The covert narcissist reacts with deep satisfaction and superiority to your overwhelming pain. These cruelties cause various forms of chronic anxiety and severe oxidative stress that can result in autoimmune illnesses.
Children who grow up with chronic trauma and severe stress are constantly in a state of fight or flight. Some of these adult children marry covert narcissist and begin the cycle of emotional and psychological narcissistic abuse again. .
Put yourself on the road to recover, healing and transformation with daily self care practices that focus on your getting what you deserve: good sleep, rest, nourishing food, hydration, exercise that works for you, activating your creative gifts.
The narcissistic personality leads his/her life in psychological delusion.
The narcissist is without conscience, shame or mercy.
Narcissistic golden children glide through life, supremely entitled, believing that they re perfect and others are inferior.
Devoted followers of the narcissist willingly surrender their identities and their morality to be a part of this special club.
After leaving the narcissist, you are freer to speak and manifest truth each day in your words, attitudes, actions, creative pursuits.
Quoting from my book: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist: Knowing and speaking the truth is a spiritual blessing and a worldly curse. Knowing and speaking the truth about human nature is part of your destiny if you re to evolve as an individual.

Quote from my Book: Freeing yourself From the Narcissist in Your Life: "The narcissist expects others to mirror him perfectly. In your words, gestures and actions he expect you to feed back to him messages that resonate with his flawless vision of himself. Doing less than this enrages the narcissist and causes him to feel emotionally injured."
The narcissist is in an irretrievable state of delusion, immune to self truth.
The narcissist harms others with his venomous projections and his cruel unremitting revenge tactics.
Beneath the surface the narcissist is always bubbling with rage.
Quote from my book: Freeing Yourself From the Narcissist in Your Life: "The smallest criticism or oversight is a source of psychological wounding. Narcissistic egos are rigid, vulnerable to the subtlest slight.
You cannot have a real relationship with a narcissistic personality. You cannot be yourself with the narcissist.
Say goodbye to the narcissist and a hearty hello to your true authentic self.
Narcissists are very aggressive about what and whom they want and must have. Like two year olds they have short attention spans for satisfying their demands for praise, adulation, monetary rewards, social status, naked power. Winning is always their ultimate purpose.
Narcissists indulge themselves extravagantly. This is often done at the expense of others.
The narcissist chooses individuals as a circle of worship and adulation in his private and professional life who will serve him with unquestioned loyalty.
Quote from my book: Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life:
"The high level (successful in the world) narcissist creates an intricate system of positive feedback in the form of friends, associates, partners, spouses--who perpetually fulfill his endless needs and demands."
Narcissists live by their despotic exploitive rules:
They never admit their mistakes, The never apologize. They are supremely self entitled and believe that they are demi-gods, They have no compassion for hurting you psychologically, emotionally and financially. You are replaceable and expendable to the narcissist.
You are at a time of awakening and decision. You will free yourself from the exploitive narcissist and continue your evolution as a true authentic self.
I look forward to speaking wit you very soon.
