Narcissist – Sociopath Awareness

On the health front this week, and perhaps even something you relate with. It’s really something to think about and I don’t think the connection is coincidental. What we expose ourselves to, and what we eat for nourishment, everything plays a vital role on our delicate bodies and our mental well being.

Narcissist abuse and trauma survivors are often diagnosed with chronic pain and autoimmune disorders because long-term exposure to cortisol and adrenaline (fight or flight chemicals) cause inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation causes pain, or worse, it causes our immune system to attack itself because it thinks the inflammation is caused by a disease it needs to eradicate.

We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Both hands raised…that’s me dear lady, but for me, specifically, was that day to day ‘on guard’ to my fears. That fear of rejection from everybody, always wanting to please and holding myself in that childhood pattern thinking I’ll never be loved unless I be something else. And as you said, finally triggering an autoimmune disease (Emphysema), due to that chronic cortisol and adrenalin, partners in crime when abused, magic when they are alive and well.
    Now the healing. I intended a miracle or two but I must be still wobbling from the past, it is an insidious creature and may take a lot more chocolate to heal it than I thought 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 😂 🤣

    1. You are right, it relates to and I have survived two incidents. I’ve experienced physical and mental abuse and although similar I’d imagine it can be quite different for everyone who does experience it. For myself, I raise awareness that it can be survived, that others are not alone and that support is available. Recognizing the signs is part of it and it’s easy to see once you have become a survivor.


    1. Oh I have not and this is very interesting. I will read up on it first chance when my wifi connection improves. Thank you so very much. I can’t wait to dive into it and appreciate you. 🙏🏼💙
