How Do Empaths Protect Themselves From Narcissists? Practical Insights and Tips

Published

how do empaths protect themselves from narcissists image

Relationships can be very complicated. And strangely enough, we don’t always consciously choose the person whom we fall in love with really. It just happens. By nature, empaths have a big heart, while Narcissists, on the contrary, have an annoyingly exaggerated sense of self-importance. It is thus a little bit challenging when these two contrasting personas are in a relationship. So then, how do empaths protect themselves from narcissists? Do they need protection in the first place? In this article, I will take an in-depth look at these two characters and give tips on how to accommodate each other.

Who are Empaths?

If you are an empath, the chances are that you have had an encounter(s) with a narcissist(s). Whether or not the experience was fruitful solely depends on how you interacted with them. Narcissists thrive on making other people feel inferior about themselves.

This could be draining given that empaths are quite the opposite of narcissists – sensitive.

Empaths Character Traits

Before we delve into knowing how empaths protect themselves from narcissists, let’s discuss the traits that define empaths.

What to Expect When Dating an Empath Image

The following traits are common among empaths:

  • Do you have a problem with boundaries? Empaths tend to worry more about others than themselves. Consequently, it is difficult at times to tell when to open up and let other people into their life and when to shut off negative energy.
  • Empaths are easily prone to a nervous breakdown. They feel for everyone, including people who are total strangers to them. Absorbing all these emotions (both happy and sad) can lead to a nervous system meltdown.
  • They have intimacy issues. Empaths are quick to connect with other people emotionally. This is a liability especially when it comes to maintaining a relationship with one person. You can unconsciously find yourself emotionally entangled with more than one person.
  • Alone time is replenishing. Empaths recharge when they are alone and free from human contact. Absorbing all these emotions can be weary and draining. Alone time allows an empath to decompress and recharge. This is mainly achieved in a serene natural environment setting.
  • You have an acute intuition. The gut feeling of an empath is always right most times. I think the ability to feel what the next person is feeling is what contributes to this.

Who are Narcissists?

Beyond knowing how empaths can protect themselves from narcissists, you need to know how to identify a narcissist. It is not hard to identify a narcissist from the crowd. No one person will admit to being grandiose callous and unemotional.

Narcissists Character Traits

Narcissists portray the following characteristics:

  • Need for self-admiration. Narcissists crave admiration more than anything else. They will bombard you with statistics and personal achievements to feed their ego. This has the effect of making the other person think lowly of themselves.
  • They lack empathy. Narcissists do not show the slightest of emotion towards anything or anyone.
  • Feeling entitled. They are arrogant, selfish and think that others are indebted to them.
  • They can be manipulative. A narcissist will trick you into doing what they want. Their interests always come first, and they love exploiting others.
  • Authoritativeness. Since they believe they are good at everything they do, narcissists have an inflated sense of bossiness.

How Do Empaths Protect Themselves From Narcissists?

Given that they connect quickly, empaths are an easy target to prey on. Do empaths need to protect themselves from narcissists? Yes. Narcissists will not mind that their utterances and actions are hurting others. As a result, such a relationship will only wreck an empath. That said, how do empaths protect themselves from narcissists?

Meditation

Osho quotes on meditation image

Connecting with nature is the simplest and quickest way for an empath to replenish. Take time to reflect and think about whether or not someone is adding value to you or just exploiting you. This is the only time you can clear your mind and think clearly.

Build Boundaries

I know this sounds impossible, but there is no other way around it. You need to cut off any ties with narcissists. If you can’t then at least come clean with the person. Narcissists will only drain you of your energy at their pleasure. This might sound selfish at first, but it is for your highest good that you avoid these people.

Alone Time

Do not spend too much time with a person if they exhibit narcissistic behaviors. Take some time off to decompress and gain back the lost energy.

Let Yourself Be

Naturally, you will fall for a narcissist and even get tempted in to ‘helping’ them. Remember, it is not your job to fix everybody. Who will fix you anyway? Sometimes you need to be quite the opposite of what defines you and care for yourself.

Trust Your Intuition

How To Deal With Narcissists Image

This is the easiest way for empaths to protect themselves from narcissists. Your guts will always be right. So if you detect some negative energy in your life, the safest decision is to walk away.

Don’t Take Everything to Heart

Someone might say something insensitive towards you. If you took everything seriously, then you might become a human wreck. Take criticism for what it is without necessarily letting it eat you up. Besides, not everyone will always be helpful to you and expecting that from them is no less than being a narcissist.

Ignore them

Narcissists crave attention. Don’t give it to them. They can and will find someone else to pick on.

The Bottom Line

The truth is that no one is perfect. Well, a narcissist believes otherwise. Don’t be so obsessed with the idea of protecting yourself such that you forget to live and enjoy yourself. You may end up a sad, depressed soul and discover that you are lonely and unhappy when it is already too late to change things. People will always have flaws, and I think that is what completes us in our human nature. Dating a narcissist may be the equivalent of a dangerous dance with the devil, but hey, at least you get to dance in the long run. I hope the above answers the question: how do empaths protect themselves from narcissists. In the end, what counts is whether you found happiness in your relationship.

Peach Blossom Luck Formula: Feng Shui Method For Attracting Love

Published

on

Peach Blossom Luck Formula Image

Peach Blossom Formula is the most easy-to-use Feng Shui method for activating love luck. However, this formula should be used only if you want to attract a serious and meaningful relationship into your life. This method is not suitable for those who are looking for frivolous fun. Peach Blossom formula is designed to attract a soulmate or a marriage partner, activate your marriage luck, and bring true love into your life. Therefore before using it ask yourself if you are ready for a serious relationship!

What Is Peach Blossom In Feng Shui?

Peach blossom is a culturally determined association of a lover’s face with the beauty of peach blossoms in Chinese folklore.

The formula contains a Chinese zodiac sign (animal) that helps in attracting love, your personal Chinese zodiac sign and its location in the house.

Although the Peach blossom luck formula is mostly used when looking for a serious love relationship, it can also be used to attract like-minded friends, too.

The Peach blossom luck formula is based on the calculations of the Feng Shui school, which uses the so-called “four pillars of fate”. It determines your personality type and the most appropriate type of luck in love.

This method focuses on the four animal signs that occupy the four cardinal directions of the compass. Each of these four Animals has the power to bring Peach blossom marriage luck to a specific group of people born under certain Animal signs.

Despite its name, the Peach blossom luck formula does not imply the use of peach flowers as a Feng Shui symbol. You don’t have to cover the bedroom walls with peach wallpaper or use peach color decor.

How To Use the Peach Blossom Luck Formula?

First, you need to identify your Chinese zodiac sign. To do this, you just need to find your date of birth in the Hundred Year Calendar (click here)!

Now that you know your Chinese zodiac sign you can find your Peach blossom animal sign in the chart below and display you peach blossom animal in the corresponding Bagua sector (direction). This is where you have to use your creativity and go for a representation of the animal energy that you like. It can be a painting, a picture, a statue of your Peach Blossom animal. You can even draw it yourself. The main rule is – you should like it and it should really speak to your heart.

Peach Blossom Luck Chart Image

Peach Blossom Luck For the Rat, Monkey, and Dragon

If you were born in the years of Rat, Monkey, or Dragon, the animal Chi that will unlock your Peach blossom luck is the Rooster placed in the West sector of your house or West corner of your bedroom. The size of the image or statue doesn’t matter, as long as the Rooster is beautifully made. It is preferable if the Rooster is adorned with jewels.

Chinese Zodiac Animal Rooster Image

Peach Blossom Luck For the Rabbit, Boar, and Sheep

If you were born in the years of Rabbit, Boar, or Monkey, the animal Chi that will unlock your Peach blossom luck is the Rat placed in the North sector of your house or North corner of your bedroom. Look for the Rat figurine that is well made. Alternatively, you can use a figurine of a mongoose spewing jewels.

Peach Blossom Animal Rat Image

Peach Blossom Luck For the Snake, Rooster, and Ox

If you were born in the years of Snake, Rooster, or Ox, the animal Chi that will unlock your Peach blossom luck is the Horse placed in the South sector of your house or South corner of your bedroom. Make sure the Horse figurine/image has jewels and is well made. The more beautiful your Horse figurine/image is, the better it will be able to manifest your match.

Peach Blossom Animal Horse Image

Peach Blossom Luck For the Tiger, Horse, and Dog

If you were born in the years of Tiger, Horse, or Dog, the animal Chi that will unlock your Peach blossom luck is the Rabbit placed in the East sector of your house or East corner of your bedroom. If possible, get the Rabbit figurine that is bedecked with jewels.

Peach Blossom Animal Rabbit Image

What Happens When You Activate Your Peach Blossom Luck?

Activating your Peach blossom luck will create the situation for you to meet someone with serious intentions. However, it doesn’t guarantee the longevity or quality of the marriage. These aspects depend on your own karma.

Feng Shui creates the Chi that is conducive to life being happy and joyful. But it is not magic and cannot be used for changing someone’s destiny or karma. Feng Shui accounts for only 1/3 of your luck. The other 2/3 are down to your karma and the choices you make.

If you are currently dating someone but he/she is afraid of making a commitment, you need to understand that the Peach blossom luck will not make him/her want to marry you. You should know that it can even trigger a break up in the relationship if there is no destiny affinity between you and your partner. Thus, by breaking the relationship that is not going anywhere, it could be clearing the way for you to meet your true soulmate.

The Bottom Line

After you activate your peach blossom luck, you have to be patient. When you almost forget about it (usually, it takes about 3 months or a little longer), your soulmate will appear in your life.

As simple as it sounds, there are many people that have successfully used the Peach blossom luck formula, so you can give it a try and enjoy its wonderful results!

Sexual Narcissist: The 7 Signs You are Dealing with One

Published

on

sexual narcissist image

Do you know someone with a high sense of his abilities, in total disregard of everyone else? You could be dealing with a narcissist. And, it gets a bit twisted with a sexual narcissist. These types manipulate those around them for their sexual pleasure. They want to have as many partners as possible to portray a sexual prowess that they believe they possess. Yet, such a person never gets intimate with anyone.

Who is a Sexual Narcissist?

A sexual narcissist is a master seducer. His personality disorder means that he seeks sexual pleasure from others with no plans of reciprocating. That is, his sexual needs come first. Since they feel superior over their partners, they will want to control their spouses, yet remain noncommittal.

So, what happens if you are in a sexual relationship with such a person? It is almost certain that you will get hurt in the process.

How to Identify a Sexual Narcissist?

What are the telltale signs that you are dating a sexual narcissist? Can you protect yourself from such a toxic relationship?

1. A Natural Charmer

narcissistic manipulator image

Sexual narcissists know what to say or do to appear romantic to their partners. Picture this: Does his allure win you over the first few encounters? Does his charisma make you feel appreciated and special? Or, do you find yourself having a weak spot for his seductive ways? All those dinners, gifts, and special attention he gives you are intentional. He wants to prove himself that he can conquer whoever he wants with his sex appeal. However, such a stance never lasts.

2. No Intimacy in The Relationship

A relationship with a sexual narcissist dwells more on the physical gratification. He finds it impossible to invest emotions in the relationship.

For example, does your partner focus more on perfecting his lovemaking techniques? Does it seem like he cares less whether you have an intimate connection in the first place? Plus, do you often feel like you are his object of sexual pleasure?

Such partners insist on you maintaining a specific sexy look. Alternatively, they want you to take a crash diet to look a certain way, not caring how you feel about the change.

Intimacy requires partners to empathize with one another. In turn, you must show that you care about the other person’s feelings. However, a sexual narcissist will struggle with showing such intimacy.

3. Available For Sex Only

A sexual narcissist will put a lot of pressure on the partner so that they can meet for sex. But, he quickly leaves and never checks on the partner afterward. It’s the kind of person that leaves their spouses feeling empty and used.

This neglect after sex only shows that they are in the relationship for sexual pleasure and not love. The only other time he will show interest in the sexual partner is when he looks forward to another sexual encounter.

4. Cheating with Multiple Partners

Since a sexual narcissist is never intimate with anyone, he tends to have many sexual partners at the same time. It is a sexual addiction that can only be satisfied by seeking enjoyment from more people. Even in a marriage, such a person will be cheating on the spouse continuously. To cover his behavior, sexual narcissists have a violent relationship with their spouses.

In contrast, when single, they will never commit to the relationship. Instead, he will hop from one partner to another, trying to quench his thirst for sexual gratification. 

5. They Belittle Their Partners

Does your partner insult you for no reason? Don’t be quick to blame yourself. For a sexual narcissist, nothing good can come out of their partners. They always find fault in the way their partners carry themselves. Often, they will point out flaws to their partners to put them down in public. It is their cruel way to appear superior and relevant.

Indeed, in the eyes of the sexual narcissists, their partners are little to them. So, before you start doubting and blaming yourself for things you did not do, first confirm if your partner is a sexual narcissist or not. 

6. They Will Not Handle Criticism Well

co-dependence image

Have you ever tried to point out a mistake to a sexual narcissist? He will throw a tantrum, give you the silent treatment, or shift the blame on you. More so, he behaves like a bully or an angry child to avoid facing the consequences of his actions. In fact, they often make ridicule out of the situation.

Where possible, he will try to attack the other person at a personal level to belittle them. When this does not work, he will resort to the cold shoulder. You know, denying the other love and affection in any given relationship. This cold treatment will continue until the day the partner gives in.

Often, sexual narcissist also plays a victim. He can accuse the other person of being ungrateful for his contribution so far. 

7. It Is A One-Sided Relationship

How much can you meet his sexual demands? A typical sexual relationship with a sexual narcissist revolves around his narcissistic needs. For example, he will dictate what to wear when going out, how long you can stay out, and with who. He wants to control your thoughts into believing that your sole purpose in the relationship is to please him. Even so, he will try to make you feel guilty anytime you decide to enjoy the union.

A one-sided relationship is more of a slave and master association than an intimate couple is. In extreme cases, sexual narcissists will control every aspect of their partner’s lives, disconnecting them from the rest of the world.

Conclusion

Are you in a relationship with a sexual narcissist? A sexual narcissist cares more about portraying a happy relationship. Yet, he does nothing to make his spouse feel loved and wanted. If you’re a victim, understand and appreciate your self-worth. That way, you can take measures to protect your emotional wellbeing because such links can drain a spouse leading to stress and depression.

Meditation to attract love image

It seems that in our modern world, there are so many ways to help find love – Tinder, numerous dating apps, etc. However, there are more and more lonely people in the world. Why does it happen? Why are modern people so disconnected and lost? Well, many are simply not ready for love, feelings, relationships, commitment. Others have so many blocks that keep them away from expressing and receiving love: fears, doubts, traumas, etc. We, modern people, are so afraid to love and get hurt that we choose to not allow ourselves to love. For that reason, there is a big number of people who have their Heart chakras blocked. And this is a big problem for modern humanity!

In this article, I want to share with you a very special and powerful meditation that will help you not just to attract love, but also calm your mind, and charge you with positive love vibrations that will work as a magnet for people. After practicing this love meditation you will literally start radiating the vibes of love – and you will surely attract exactly what you radiate!

Where to Start?

love meditation image

Attracting a harmonious romantic relationship always starts with self-love. We always attract exactly the kind of partner that reflects our attitude to ourselves. If you often criticize yourself, then your partner will be sure to criticize you too. If you are used to being a victim, then you will attract a partner who will play the role of a tyrant. If you constantly feel guilty, then your partner will find a thousand reasons to blame you for something. In other words, your partner will always be a “mirror” that reflects your innermost thoughts and feelings about yourself. Therefore, you should start with developing self-love and the habit of talking and thinking about yourself only in a positive way!

Do you want to receive more love? Great, it’s a healthy feeling! Satisfy your need for the expression of love that you want the most, and you will feel so much better. Give yourself the attention you want to receive. If you want flowers, buy yourself a beautiful bouquet. If you want to hear compliments, say the exact words you want to hear to yourself, looking in the mirror! Tell yourself everything you want to hear from other people. Do not skimp on affection, do not be afraid to say the most tender and kind words to yourself. Express self-love fully!

fall in love with yourself image

One friend of mine suffered from a lack of compliments from her boyfriend. I asked her, “How often do you compliment yourself?” She looked at me in confusion and said, “Never! I’m not a narcissist!” I had to spend several hours explaining to her that narcissism has nothing to do with self-love and there is nothing wrong with complimenting yourself. And as soon as my friend accepted this and started practicing self-love affirmations her boyfriend started giving her all kinds of compliments and attention! “This is a miracle!”, my friend said the next time we met. “This is not a miracle! That’s how the Law of attraction works! Whatever we radiate, we attract!”, I replied with a smile.

Meditation to Attract Love: What’s Important to Know?

Meditation to attract love is an effective way to find not only a soulmate but also to find inner peace and harmony.

Before you start your meditation to attract love, you need to create a special atmosphere. Here are some tips on how to do this:

  1. find a quiet and peaceful place where no one can distract you;
  2. put on clean and comfortable clothing;
  3. turn off all the gadgets and electronic items, phones, computers, anything that might interfere with your meditation;
  4. choose the music for your meditation – it can be meditation music, the sounds of the ocean, the sounds of nature, etc.;
  5. light pink or red candles, rose essential oil or incense;
  6. sit in a comfortable position and take a few deep breaths to relax as much as possible.

Now you can start the meditation.

Meditation to Attract Love

powerful meditation to attract love image

Close your eyes.

Imagine that you are standing at the entrance to a mysterious grotto or cave. At the entrance, you are met by two majestic peacocks, who wave their heads at you and offer you to enter. You go in and see a huge crystal, shining and shimmering under the trickles of water. From this water comes a pleasant aroma. You go further and hear the voices of angels and heavenly guides who are saying to you: “Follow us”.

You walk through the corridors of your life and at the call of your guardian angels, you enter a small hall that you have never seen before. It’s very cozy! The ceiling is shimmering with pink hues, all in soft carpets and pink pillows. You have entered the sacred realm of love. Here are all your guardian angels and heavenly guides who accompany you in all your good endeavors. Here is everyone you love and who loves you and wishes you well.

guided meditation for attracting soulmate image

Your guardian angel takes your hand and walks to the center of the room. Here you see a small pool of rose water. This water is warm and beckons you to take a dip. In the center of this pool is an elevation from which the source of love flows. It never stops and never ends. The streams of love are endless.

You get naked (or you can visualize yourself in thin transparent clothes) and go into this pool. Feel yourself submerged in soft and warm water. You dip your whole body into it. Love waters wash over you. You are immersed in love. Your whole body, every cell of your body breathes love and is saturated with it. You are filled with a sense of tremendous lightness and joy. You enjoy swimming in this sacred love waters. Stay there as long as you want.

sacred rose water image

Then come out of the pool and visualize that your soulmate is standing right in front of you. He looks at you with eyes filled with love.

Now imagine that a delicate, fragrant flower is blooming in your heart. Rose, peony, lotus – choose any flower that you associate with the purest form of love. From this flower comes love energy. It looks like pink light. This energy moves towards the heart of your soulmate and enters it. In response to your love energy, the love energy of your soulmate also comes out of his/her heart and enters yours. Now you are connected by a double loop of love energy. Stay in this visualization as long as you like.

twin flame meditation image

Now hug your loved one, and imagine that he/she hugs you too. You feel incredibly happy that you are together and you are in love. There are no fears or doubts. You feel absolute love, trust, and devotion.

Feel this moment. Remember this pleasant feeling. Keep it in your heart even after finishing the meditation. Now that you experienced happiness, joy, and bliss, you can open your eyes.

The Bottom Line

This meditation is very powerful and effective! Practice it at least twice a week for two months, and you will surely notice an extraordinary change in your life and your perception of yourself and the people around you. Your aura will be glowing with love. And people will be attracted to your blissful radiance like moths to a flame.

Don’t tell anyone that you are doing this meditation. Keep it a secret!
