This week a post I submitted to Rebelle Society just before Christmas (2016) has gone live. It’s called ‘Is Narcissism Inherent to the Patriarchy?‘ I love Rebelle Society and the writing on their site. It’s one of those places a Continue reading Narcissism and The Patriarchy→
This is part of ‘An Empath’s Guide to Narcissists’ video series. Examining the concepts of martyrdom and suffering. It’s up to you to access and admit to your own suffering and woundedness. You’re not meant to endure until someone else Continue reading Martyrdom and Suffering→
Out on a brief sojourn this morning, I was contemplating the concept of I AM. We’re told it’s the most powerful phrase in the Universe, and as I’m currently exploring the energy of narcissism through the video series, something became clear.
One of the prevalent experiences in the narcissist dynamic is projection, and if you conjugate the verb to be, you’ve got a pretty powerful projection tool. I am, you are, he/she/it is, we are, they are, you (pl) are. So anything you add after these words has the same impact as the powerful I AM statements we are encouraged to use as affirmations.
This is also a nod to the concept of Oneness; we could say that they all mean the same thing. When you say to someone else YOU ARE ____________, you’re actually saying I AM ___________. So it’s worth observing carefully what follows those words, because they’re a direct reflection of what’s in your field.
It also speaks again to the idea that healing begins within. We heal ourselves by addressing and acknowledging our own woundedness. We attain Oneness in the same way, by acknowledging the wounds of duality and healing the separation.
