Emphasis on accessing the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic, body/mind systems that lead to healing, the evolution of the true authentic self and the use of unique creative gifts. 


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.
