MHNR Network Welcomes: Intentionally Emotive Hosted by Shaun Karim!

“Having gone through what I have in my life, I have a responsibility to share my experiences with others. Having been as low as I have been, not even that long ago, that person would not recognize the person I have today, and I want to help others achieve the same thing. ” 

– Shaun Karim

 

Shaun Karim shares his own journey dealing with narcissistic abuse and domestic abuse against men with his podcast Intentionally Emotive. 

Shaun Karim felt that there was something missing in the array of podcasts that just didn’t just quite fit what he was looking for in his listening experiences and decided to become a podcaster and fix exactly that void that he had found.  As a man who has experienced an abusive upbringing,  he tended to mirror those kinds of relationships as he got older, often ending up in abusive relationships.  Men as survivors of domestic abuse are not talked about enough.

As Shaun progressed through therapy and his own healing, he decided that he wanted to use his experiences to help others, especially men, in similar situations.  As he has been able to overcome so much and continues to follow that as an ongoing journey, he felt part of his place in this world was to share these experiences, help others feel less alone, and perhaps give them a place to begin their own healing journeys. Intentionally Emotive, the name itself, was specifically chosen as Shaun has always had the best outcomes in his life when he truly connected with what he wanted to achieve.  In a world where we are all trying to live more mindfully, where we are learning more about faith and how to attract things in life, “Intentionally Emotive” just felt perfect.

Shaun’s aim is to help create a way for others to understand that their own personal traumas, all of the things that they have been through in life, are not their fault.   Many people with abuse in their lives may incorrectly place blame on themselves.  Shaun feels that the only way to unlock that is to push that ‘reset’ button and fall into the person who you are, and get rid of the character that you used to be.  It’s not an overnight solution, but it’s absolutely achievable, and he tries to help his listeners jumpstart that pathway in their own lives.

Shaun has been homeless when he was at a very difficult time in his life.  No job, hardly any money, living off of two hot dogs for $1.49 split up throughout four days.  It took several years, but his faith was reignited and he would hand his impossible circumstances to Him and He always would always take care of him at the perfect time.  He understands that he is not here by accident, but because he has a purpose to help others who are where he has already been.

About Shaun Karim

Shaun Karim was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.  Throughout his life, he encountered different forms of abuse and carried that trauma for decades.  It became part of his identity in his relationships with other people and himself.  Shaun suffered through depression and anxiety for decades, was in relationships with narcissists, was a victim of domestic violence, and was afraid of what may come in his future.

It was at his lowest moments when he had a choice–to continue with his family’s script and give up or to take a leap of faith and write his own future. In his long and arduous journey, along with professional help, he learned the origins of his trauma and, more importantly, what he could do to overcome all of it. Shaun is a mental health advocate who understands the pitfalls that toxic thinking and toxic people that are imposed on others, and he understands the “mental reset” that needs to take place.

Marriage to High Level Narcissist – From Dream Come True to Nightmare Scenario

You were chosen by the high level narcissist because you fit his/her specifications as the perfect partner.  You are bright, socially savvy, quite attractive, magnetic, empathic. You shimmer inside and out. You make people feel comfortable; they trust you. 

The early years were inspired by a kind of beautiful scent, a magic elixir. You found the high level enchanting and compelling. Bright, very attractive, in command of himself and others, you said Yes to tis irresistible promise of having your dreams and wishes fulfilled. 

When you look back now you remember the clues, the signs, the giveaways that were telling you that this person was disingenuous, a gifted liar, a double dealer, an unrepentant manipulator and exploiter. 

Now after many years of psychological and emotional abuse, too many ugly wrenching scenes, abandonment, you are coming to a point of decision.

Each day you feel a bit more tired, dragging yourself around, forcing yourself by will and guilt to perform in your work and personal life. 

Your body is lethargic and heavy feeling; your energy is sapped, your thoughts are gloomy even morose, an endless loop. At night you dread the sleep that will not come. And when it does you are subject to horrific nightmares.

You are being contacted by your deepest self, making every effort to get your attention through powerful dream images… Dreams are messengers from the unconscious, the fountain of wisdom

This is a time of awakening a time for you to practice self regard and the care of your psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual health. 

Get the rest and sleep that you need. If you have problems sleeping, rest. Be unjudgmental about any difficulty sleeping. Resting is a powerful way to relaxation, calmness, acceptance and love for self, good nutrition, quality hydration, movement and exercise, stretching, basic yoga poses, walking, dancing, Nature, expanding your creativity in every form it takes for you. A spiritual practice, meditation and prayer the way you define this. Be unjudgmental and kind with yourself.

You feel the power and energy of your authentic original self as you move forward along your unique pathways.

Reading the Shifting Scary Eyes of Hijackals As They Try to Control You

Yes, Hijackal’s eyes are not the windows to their souls as much as windows into their fears and desires to control. It’s real. You’re not imagining it. You can feel safer with the insights in this episode.Research shows that humans notice faces first. Generally, that is what attracts us. Eyes tell you so much, if you interpret their messages accurately. When dealing with Hijackals–narcissistic, borderline, anti-social, and histrionic folks, you MUST get the messages clearly or you’ll be damaged, emotionally, if not physically. That’s why this episode is particularly important. Healthy people want to read healthier things into peoples’ expressions. You must not do that when you’re with Hijackals. You have to believe what is written on their faces or you will be in trouble. Misinterpreting the messages in their eyes can be dangerous. Not believing those messages? More dangerous. Rage eyes. Vacant eyes, Dead eyes, Black Eyes, Psychopathic Stares. Do you know the difference? Do you know what they indicate? Do you know how to keep yourself safer? Listen in. HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:The different ways narcissistic and psychopathic people look at youWhy it it important to recognize what a narcissist wants most from you5 different ways people with narcissistic, borderline, and anti-social tendencies look at you (None of them good!)How to respond to the different warnings in their eyes effectivelyDo you know you want to feel safer when Hijackal eyes burn a hole in you?  I’m here to help.Let’s talk soon.RhobertaWant clarity, insights, strategies, and support from me?

High Level Narcissists – Their Insatiable Greed and Manipulations

Human greed has been with us for tens of thousands of years.  Greed is one of the great sins – the relentless pursuit of money, properties, luxurious possessions and the dark manipulations that are part of this game of pursuing more. Greedy high level narcissists are highly manipulative. With their obsessive need for more they plot and plan how they will exploit others, including their spouses, ex-spouses, relatives, children, “friends”, business associates.

When the high level’s greed leads to tremendous financial success, this individual feels special and over entitled. He looks down on those who have not achieved his level of success. At the same time he burns with envy at those who have more money, wield raw power and material acquisitions. 

Male and female high level narcissists pursue partners and prospective spouses who are well connected socioeconomically. 

Many are enraptured by the high level narcissist and captivated, they partner with and marry these high climbers. Sometimes the partner has no idea that he or she is being manipulated and exploited. For the narcissistic personality what belongs to you us theirs. 

For the high level narcissist you are a commodity and resource that makes him very rich. You are interchangeable with others. If you don’t bring it forward he will easily find someone else. For the high level greedy narcissist, everyone is expendable. 

If you are partnered or married to a greedy high level narcissist there is a time of reckoning of becoming awakened to the true nature of the narcissistic personality. You can no longer be exposed to their psychological and moral toxicity. You are exhausted from their taking advantage of you, financially, psychologically, emotionally, creatively and spiritually. 

You stand firmly grounded in your individual wisdom and insight. Now you move forward along the pathways of the healing and restorative parasympathetic of self care, the fruits of your unique creativity, the beauty of your self expression, spontaneity, solitude of inner peace. Give yourself tremendous credit for this journey you are making. And always listen to your intuition, a divine gift.
