The Games Narcissists Play: How to Avoid Being the Victim Image

Known for their exaggerated sense of self-importance, narcissists think that the world literally revolves around them. Their actions, attitudes, behavior, and the language they use determine their state. They draw their main satisfaction from making other people see them as persons of great importance who know everything. They do not care whether their actions may have an undesirable effect on others.

Who is a Narcissist?

Narcissists are smitten with an idealized self-image, which they wear around other people to escape reality. Deep down they are wounded creatures who are just too scared to admit it to themselves and other people around them. To compensate for their injuries, they create a “perfect person” who is flawless in an attempt to make themselves feel better.

Psychotherapy has proven to work just fine for the majority of people diagnosed with this condition. It’s not that narcissists are very dangerous people, but spending too much time around them might have adverse effects on you. Their alter-ego may begin to make you feel like a failure or worse still stop you from living to your full potential.

The games narcissists play may also leave you vulnerable to other strangers. Narcissists live on making other people feel less achieved about themselves and regard them as some form of a superhero.

The Mind Games Narcissists Play

Narcissists play mind games to manipulate our thinking. Long encounters with them may even change your perceptions about certain aspects of life. Be on the lookout for the following signs:

Curiosity

Narcissists want to have in-depth knowledge about their next victim. During conversations, they will always ask questions about you, which they will exploit later to their advantage.

Superiority complex

These con artists will feed you tones of information on topics you are not familiar with. The intention is to show how smart they are and how dumb you are. In the end, they will have exerted a form of influence over you, which is always their primary objective.

Creating fear and aggression

This is the weapon they use to get people’s attention and manipulate them eventually. Fear attracts negative energy, which is where they thrive best. They will also use your insecurities to mask their own. Though sad to say, deep down narcissists feel like the ugly duck. To cover this up and make themselves feel better, they will consistently bring up your insecurities during the conversations to make you feel inferior and bad about yourself.

An act of innocence

Narcissists are the sly fox, and that is how they end up taking the blame off them whenever they mess up. They have perfected the art of pretense so much that it is almost impossible to notice when they are putting on a show and when they are sincere (which rarely happens).

Narcissists will also twist information with made up stories that portray them as the helpless ones. They are always shifting the blame for their actions onto others including you.

Exerting unnecessary pressure on you

The primary goal is to render you emotionally unstable so that you can’t make independent sound decisions. You will notice once they start trying to comfort you right after ticking you off; though this might seem elusive since the emotional charge is in play.

How to Deal with Narcissists

How To Deal With Narcissists Image

You don’t have to be completely helpless against narcissists. Below are strategies to help you play their own game against them to prevent them from using you. The first step, however, is to identify these games narcissistic play first.

  1. Whenever they confront you with multiple questions, look them straight in the eyes. Eye contact makes them face the other direction. Only a sincere person can maintain a clear eye gaze.
  2. Change the conversation. Narcissists want to know a great deal of information about you. Don’t be too quick to give it to them. Slow them down by asking questions about themselves or changing the topic whenever they shift focus on you.
  3. Question more. Once they start showing off with figures and statistics, question the sources of their information. You will notice some skepticism, and gradually they draw away from you. This is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself from the games narcissists play. Don’t readily take in everything they present to you lest you fall victim to their scams.
  4. Have self-confidence. Narcissists prey on people who are less confident and have esteem issues. Work on your confidence so that when they come blowing their sense of self-importance, you can quickly shut them off.
  5. Loosen up a bit. If you get emotionally unstable quickly, try lighting up the mood. Whenever a narcissist tries to destabilize your emotions, go ahead and say something funny to shift the focus.
  6. Preserve your personal space. Don’t let just about anyone invade your personal space. If you have had enough of someone, it is prudent to tell them so or just distance yourself from them.
  7. Stay calm and decompress. You can do this either through meditation or just taking some time off. It is normal that there will always be people with more achievements than you have made. Do not let this get to you. Sit back and re-strategize on ways of living to your full potential without necessarily comparing yourself to others.
  8. Identify your insecurities. We all have a sense of insecurity one way or the other, and this is perfectly human. Know what your insecurities are and if you can’t fix them don’t let someone use them against you. This may be difficult, but once you get the hang of it, you become a stable, productive being.

The Bottom Line

Life comes with its challenges. The games narcissists play might overwhelm you, but you have to outsmart them. Eventually, its either you put them in their place, or you fall prey. To help these people, encourage them to attend psychological counseling. But as for you, stay safe from the games narcissists play.

Walking Meditation: How To Perform It Properly And Why?

Published

on

Walking meditation image

In this article, I want to share the practical aspects of walking meditation. I will share with you how, where and when the practice of walking meditation is the most effective. In this article, you will find practical recommendations of walking meditation, as well as tips on how to form a quality mind that will lead to concentration, insight, and wisdom through physical activity in walking meditation.

Walking Meditation And Buddha

Buddha emphasized that mindfulness can be developed in four basic meditation postures: standing, sitting, lying, and walking. He encouraged us to be aware of these postures in order to form a clear awareness and remembrance of what we were doing while in one position or another.

The ancient Bodhi tree grows in the Indian village of Bodh Gaya. According to legend, it was under that tree that the Buddha attained enlightenment. Nearby you can see a path length of 17 steps. The Buddha used that path for his walking meditations.

In his teachings, the Buddha has repeatedly said that it is important to develop clarity of consciousness constantly, no matter what position your body is in: you sit or stand, lie or even walk – for the practice of meditation, you can and should use any moment. The lives of monks and nuns of the Buddha’s time show that many of them reached different levels of spiritual realization through meditation while walking.

Find Your Own Way

Some people find that they are particularly drawn to walking meditation because they find it easier and more natural than sitting meditation. When they sit down, they feel too lethargic or tense or easily get distracted. Their minds do not calm down. If the same thing happens in your case – do not persist. Try something else, like changing your posture. Do something different. Experiment with standing meditation or try walking meditation. This new posture during meditation can give you other skillful means of applying the mind. All four postures of meditation are simple techniques that you can use for the development and training of your consciousness.

Try and develop meditation while walking and you will be able to see its benefits.

In the forest meditation tradition of northeastern Thailand, monks put a special emphasis on walking meditations. Monks spend many hours walking to develop concentration. Sometimes ten or fifteen hours a day!

Ajahn Singtong spent so much time meditating while walking that he trampled a furrow in the meditation path. There was a hollow in the sandy path, for he walked many hours a day – sometimes fifteen or more!

The Five Benefits Of Walking Meditation

Walking meditation benefits image

Buddha spoke of the five benefits of walking meditation. If you take them in the order in which they are considered in the suttas, it turns out that walking meditation:

  • develops endurance when taking long walks;
  • is good for diligence;
  • good for health;
  • it is good for digestion;
  • promotes concentration that lasts for a long time.

Now let’s take a closer look at walking meditation benefits!

#1 Development of endurance

The first benefit of walking meditation is that it promotes endurance over long walking distances. This was especially important in Buddha’s time when most people traveled on foot. Buddha himself often traveled, moving from place to place. He, therefore, advised walking meditation as a method of developing physical fitness and endurance over long walking distances.

The forest monks still roam. They take the Cup, the robes, and wander in search of secluded places to meditate. As a preparation for the journey, they are constantly increasing the amount of meditation when walking, to develop, among other things, physical fitness and endurance. They increase the amount of such meditation to five or six hours a day.

#2 Development of diligence

During sitting meditation, many meditators are faced with the fact that every time they drown in calm states, they may become too “calm” and unconscious, which leads to sleep or even snoring. Time passes quickly in such a meditation, but they do not have any clarity or vigilance, although it feels peaceful. Without mindfulness and alertness, meditation can become dull.

If you are one of those who can fall asleep during meditation then you should consider practicing walking meditation. Walking back and forth, meditating, will help you to overcome drowsiness. You will not be able to fall asleep while you are walking!

#3 It’s Good for your health

grounding visualization image

Buddha said that walking meditation promotes good health. This is the third benefit.

We all know that walking is considered a good form of physical exercise. When we practice meditation while walking we are actually performing a physical and mental exercise. So walking can be good exercise and a way to develop the mind. But in order to get such benefits, it is necessary to bring awareness into the walking process, instead of just walking and letting the mind wander in thoughts and emotions.

#4 It’s good for digestion

The fourth benefit of walking meditation is that it is good for digestion. This is especially important for monks who eat just once a day. After eating, the blood rushes to the stomach and its outflow from the brain occurs. Therefore, you feel drowsy.

The forest monks emphasize that walking meditation should be practiced for several hours after eating, as walking back and forth promotes digestion.

When you have had a hearty lunch, instead of going to sleep, it is better to meditate for an hour while walking. This will help physical health and give a chance to develop the mind.

#5 Promotes prolonged concentration

The fifth advantage of walking meditation is that the concentration resulting from such meditation lasts for a long time.

When we practice sitting meditation, it is very easy to maintain the posture. All we need to do is just close our eyes and reject the stimuli that come through sight. We don’t bother with any bodily movements. Therefore, in comparison to walking meditation, sitting meditation is a much more refined posture in terms of the involved activity.

When we walk, we get a lot of sensory information. We look where we are going, so we get visual information, and we also get information because of body movement. Therefore, if we can focus the mind while walking and receiving all this sensory information, then when we change this posture to a more refined one, the concentration will be easier to hold.

In other words, when we sit down, the power of the mind and the power of this concentration easily flow into this refined posture. So, if you develop concentration only in a sitting position, when you get up and begin to perform bodily movements, such as walking, it is more difficult to maintain this state of concentration. This is because you go from the subtle to more physical. Therefore, walking meditation can help to develop strength and clarity of mind and concentration, which can make other, less active, meditation poses even better.

Preparation For Walking Meditation

Suitable Place

walking path image

Remember that walking is a stimulating posture, and initially, the mind will often wander. Beginners are best to start with shorter tracks. Fifteen steps would be enough. If you are going to do it outside, then find a secluded place where you will not be distracted and disturbed.

It would be great to find a track that is a little hidden. If you walk in an open space where there is a beautiful view, it can distract you – since your mind would be thinking about the view. The hidden territory is especially preferable for those who think too much. This will help you to calm your mind. If the path is hidden, it will help to direct the mind inward and calm down. Oppositely, if the path is open and provides a view then your mind will be directed outward which doesn’t match to meditation purposes.

Mind And Body Preparation

Once you have found a suitable place, stand at the beginning of the track. Straighten up. Place your right hand on your left palm in front of you. Do not walk with your hands folded behind your back because this posture represents a simple walk but not meditation!

The main purpose of walking meditation is to develop Samadhi which requires diligence. The Pali word “Samadhi” means focusing the mind, bringing it into a state of unidirectionality through the gradual development of the stages of awareness and concentration. To focus the mind, one must be diligent and determined.

First of all, it requires a certain degree of physical and mental concentration. You start by folding your hands in front of you. The concentration of the body promotes the concentration of the mind.

Thus, to establish a concentration of the body, one should stand up, establish awareness and mindfulness in relation to the body. Then you have to raise your hands together in Ajali (a gesture of respect). Close your eyes and focus your mind on the qualities of Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha.

After that, put your hands in front of you and establish a determination in your mind in terms of how much you are going to walk: half an hour, an hour or more. Go strictly as much as you decide. So you will train your mind in this initial stage of meditation with zeal, inspiration, and faith.

It is important to remember to look down (about 5 feet ahead of you) while performing walking meditation. Don’t look around. Maintain awareness on the sensation of your feet touching the ground. In this way, you will develop a more refined awareness, a clear knowledge of walking while performing walking meditation.

Mindfulness To Walking Posture

walking posture image

In this technique, while walking, you direct all your attention to your feet, to the sensations and feelings as they arise and disappear. Be aware of this feeling with your whole foot. As the foot rises again, note this new sensation in your mind. When you lift each foot and step forward, concentrate on the sensations that occur. With each new step, new sensations will be experienced, and the old ones will cease. All this should be realized. With each step a new sensation is experienced – this sensation arises and disappears; arises and disappears again.

In this method we direct attention to the sensation of walking itself as each step is taken. We should notice what type of sensations and feelings arises on your feet.

When we stand, we experience a sensation, a feeling, a contact with the ground. This contact can produce pain, heat, or other sensations. We direct our conscious attention to these sensations, fully cognizing them. When we lift the foot to take a step, the sensation changes as soon as the foot lifts off the ground. As you walk the feeling is constantly changing, new ones appear. We consciously note this emergence and disappearance of sensations as the foot lifts off the ground and touches it again. Thus, we keep full attention simply on the sensations arising when walking.

Have you ever paid attention to the sensations in the foot while walking?

They happen every time we walk, but usually, in life, we don’t notice these subtle things. When we walk, our mind wanders somewhere. Walking meditation is a way to simplify what we do when we do it. We affirm the mind in the here and now. We simplify everything, we calm the mind by simply knowing the emergence and disappearance of sensations.

How fast are you walking?

It is advised walking naturally, not too fast, not too slow. If you walk fast, you may find it very difficult to focus on the feelings that arise and fade. Maybe you need to slow down a bit. On the other hand, some people might be better off speeding up. Everyone is different. You need to find your own pace that would suit you. At first, you can walk slowly, and gradually move to a natural pace of walking.

If your awareness is weak (that is, your mind often wanders), walk very slowly until you can stay in the present moment with each step. Start by establishing awareness at the beginning of the track. When you get to the middle, ask yourself, ” Where is my mind? Does it know the sensation in my feet? Do I feel a touch here and now, in the present moment?”. If the mind has run away, bring it back to the sensation in the foot and continue walking.

When you reach the end, slowly turn around, re-establish awareness. Where is the mind? Does it know the sensation in your feet? As a rule, the mind rushes in search of thoughts of vanity, fear, happiness, sadness, anxiety, doubt, pleasure, disappointment, and so on. It wanders in a multitude of all the thoughts that can arise.

Awareness

awareness image

If awareness of the object of meditation is absent, then first set it again, and then start walking back. Establish the mind again on the simple knowledge of the act of walking, and then begin to walk back to the other end of the path. When you reach the middle, note: “I am in the middle of the path”. Then, when you reach the end of the track, note: “Where is the mind?”. This is how you go back and forth, being aware of the arising and disappearing sensations. As you walk, constantly reset your awareness, bringing the mind back, directing it inward, becoming aware, seeing sensations at every moment of their occurrence and disappearance.

As we maintain awareness of the sensations and feelings in our feet, we will notice that the mind has become less distracted. The mind will be less and less inclined to external things happening around us. We will become calmer. The mind will calm down as it is established.

When your mind calms down, you will want the movements to stop. Stop, stand still, let the mind experience this state of peace and quiet. If the mind has become very refined while walking, you may find that it is simply impossible to continue walking. Walking implies a willful decision to walk, and your mind is too focused on the object of meditation. Stop on the path and continue your meditation in a standing position. Meditation involves working with the mind, not with posture. A physical posture is simply a convenient tool that serves for perfecting the mind work.

Concentration And Calm

Concentration and calm go hand in hand with mindfulness. When the mind is calm in meditation, there will be a feeling of joy, delight, and bliss due to this calmness. The Buddha said that the bliss of peace is the greatest happiness and the concentrated mind experiences this peace.

This peace can be experienced in this very life. By developing the walking meditation practice we can integrate it into everyday life. For example, when we go to the store, from room to room, etc. we can use this active movement as meditation. We can be conscious of just the fact that we are going somewhere and the process of walking can be our walking meditation. When we are practicing walking meditation in our everyday life our minds become silent and calm. This is the way to develop concentration and peace in everyday life.

From Sitting Meditation To Walking Meditation

Bali meditation image

If during sitting meditation the mind becomes peaceful with the help of some object of meditation, then use the same object for your walking meditation.

However, in the case of some subtle objects of meditation, such as breathing, the mind must first acquire some degree of stability and calmness. If it is not calm yet, but you start walking, focusing on the breath, then it will be very difficult for you to perform a walking meditation, because the breath is a very subtle object. Therefore, it is better, to begin with, a coarser object – for example, with sensations and feelings arising in the feet.

There are many different objects of meditation that will help to move well from sitting to walking. For example, kindness, compassion, equanimity, etc. As you walk back and forth, develop the broadest thoughts based on kindness: “May all beings be happy. May all beings be at peace. May all beings be free from suffering.” You can use walking in addition to sitting meditation, developing the practice on the same object, but in a different position.

Mantras

If during walking meditation you notice that you are falling into drowsiness, then you need to cheer up the mind, not calm it down. Use the mantra to make it more focused and alert. Quietly repeat the mantra to yourself. If the mind is still wandering, start saying the mantra very quickly, and start walking more quickly. As you walk, repeat the mantra. Thus, the mind will be able to focus quickly.

The Bottom Line

When you decide to perform walking meditation you need to remember that what matters is not how many hours we spent on meditation, but how good it was. If your mind wandered while walking back and forth, you were not meditating. It is the quality of the mind that matters, not the amount of meditation we do.

Every aspect of our lives is an opportunity for meditation. Meditation is not just sitting on a pillow. All the processes of life are opportunities for us to explore reality. We make an effort to know things as they really are, that is, to know that they arise and disappear.

In the forest tradition, when a meditation teacher comes to a monastery, almost the first place he goes is to check the monastic meditation paths to see how many footprints there are. If the paths are well-trodden, it is considered a sign of a good monastery. Let your spiritual path always be well-trodden!

“Fire burn the candle and destroy my poverty.
Let the sprout grow and reveal my wealth.

Incredibly Powerful Energy Hygiene Techniques And Rituals For Empaths

Published

on

Energy Hygiene Image

Have you ever found yourself exhausted after going out or talking to someone? Well, if you have – you’re not crazy! It’s perfectly normal for empaths to feel this way. However, you can always change it! If you manage your energy wisely you can function really well and even get the benefits of your gift instead of feeling exhausted! In this article, I want to share with you energy hygiene techniques and rituals to help you embrace your unique nature and stay safe.

10 Powerful Energy Hygiene Techniques

We all need to remember to keep clean not just our physical body but also our energy body. And this is especially important for empaths because they are highly exposed to their environment and often absorb other people’s emotions like a sponge. The following techniques can be very helpful to start performing an energy hygiene practice.

1. Avoid Unnecessarily Communications

narcissist talk image

Staying polite try to avoid communicating with people who you don’t like or are not interested in. Learn not to waste your energy on small talk. These kinds of conversations take your energy and by the end of such communication, you will feel exhausted.

Also, avoid people with reduced self-control (drunks, drug addicts, etc.). People under influence usually turn into energy vampires. They can be very annoying and after such interaction, you will lose your energy.

2. Keep A Safe Distance

Being in public places (especially if you are excited and/or being under the influence of alcohol) try not to let strangers stand close to your spine – 3-6 inches from it. This is the part of your body that is the most vulnerable to the impact of subtle energies. It is good to use essential oils of rosemary, eucalyptus or cloves when you go out. Just mix a couple of drops with the body oil and put it on that area of your back. The aroma of these oils will create a strong protective energy field around you.

3. Be Attentive To What You Eat

It is very dangerous for an empath to eat food prepared by unhealthy, tired, irritated or ill-treating people! Being an empath you will immediately absorb the energy of the person who prepared the food by eating it! So, even if you are very hungry, make an excuse not to eat such food. It will not benefit you, but, on the contrary, will disrupt the energy balance of your body, which can lead to various physiological disorders (the most innocent one in this case – indigestion).

4. Have Your Personal Space

pranayama meditation image

It is very important that your home has your personal living space – the so-called zone of personal comfort, where no one can invade without your permission. Use this area to retreat when you feel like you need to relax, meditate, and recharge.

5. Don’t Take What Doesn’t Belong To You

Do not pick up any objects (especially jewelry, amulets, personal belongings) from the ground. You do not know the fate of their owner – they can be saturated with very negative energy information. In addition, the gemstones themselves can be energy vampires, especially in relation to the new, not very energetically strong owner. In general, if you do not want to incur serious karmic trials, try not to pick up anything from the ground. Follow the rule – do not take what does not belong to you!

6. Do Not Keep Gifts Received From Unfriendly People

Treat gifts from unfriendly people with caution. Such gifts can also play the role of an energy vampire. Every time you look at such a gift you will lose energy. Some gifts can weaken you even to a serious and long-term illness. Accept only those gifts that come from people that love you.

7. Keep Your Energy And Physical Body In Harmonious Balance

yoga studio image

Physical activity is a good means of accumulation and equalization of energy, but only if it gives you pleasure. Find the activity you actually enjoy and turn it into your daily routine. Take care of your health. A physically unhealthy person not only can not resist the energy attack, but he can gradually turn into a vampire.

8. Do Not Try-On Or Wear Other People’s Clothes

Clothes keep the energy of the person it belongs to. When you try-on somebody’s clothes you “put on” that person’s energy. Even after taking the clothes off the energy of that person stays with you and you have to perform a deep energy cleansing if you want to get rid of it. For the same reason, in any case, do not use personal belongings of sick or dead people.

Also, do not give your clothes for temporary use to anybody. By doing it you just give away your energy.

9. Spend Some Time Alone

Bali meditation image

It’s very important to understand that our energy is constantly mixing with the energy fields of other people. Even if you are always surrounded by positive people, you can simply lose yourself in their feelings and emotions and stop recognizing your own. Alone time is a treatment that you need every day! You cannot be whole and self-sufficient if you don’t have your daily alone time. You need to stay away from people for a while in order to recharge yourself and separate your energy from others.

10. Digital Detox

Receiving so many notifications and information from your devices can be draining. Therefore, it so important to occasionally turn off the phone and get off the internet. Read a book instead or just relax.

Energy Hygiene Rituals

1.Spend Time In Nature

grounding meditation image

Whenever you can, spend time in nature! Hug a tree, meditate in the park or perform a walking meditation. Trees have a wonderful energy that can help you feel better. Relocate your yoga practice or meditation to the park. Let the Mother nature to take care of you and recharge you with Her gentle caress.

2. Energy Cleansing Baths

Energy cleansing is necessary in order to get rid of the negative energy that we accumulate when communicating with other people, experiencing fears, negative emotions, etc. If someone wished us harm, sent in our direction his (her) aggression, directed jealous thought about our success or relationships – it all leaves an imprint on our energy body.

Energy cleansing baths are my favorite energy hygiene ritual! They are the easiest yet most powerful way to remove all this negativity.

To learn how to perform energy cleansing bath rituals read my article “This Is the Most Powerful Energy Cleansing Bath Ritual!”.

3. Cleansing Shower

cold shower image

Water has a cleansing power so you can clear your energy while cleaning your physical body. Simply visualize how water washing away all the negative energy, emotions, and feelings.

4. Shielding

Never leave the house without your energetic shield! Simply ask for Archangel Michael’s protection and visualize a golden white “egg” around you. Don’t forget to say your intention: “Archangel Michael, surround me with your protective shield and keep me safe and protected. Thank you!” This may seem simple but works every time.

5. Energy Shower

When you can’t take a regular shower but you feel that your energy was infected by negativity you can visualize golden white light coming from the top of your head and washing away everything that is stuck in your body, sending it down to Earth.

6. Smudging
