Rescue Yourself from the Pernicious Shadow of the High Level Narcissist

Quote by Carl Jung  “Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser itis. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.”

Trapped in a marriage or partnership with a pernicious high level narcissist, an individual obsessed with self and public image with extreme self entitlement, very low conscience capacity, often an infant terrible with a dreadful temper that is projected out on to you behind closed doors. This is horrifying to the spouse or child of the high level narcissist. 

The  high level carries from within a primitive, seething Shadow that ejects venom in various forms on to you: false accusations, recriminations, incessant criticisms, withering projections that send you into the dark reaches of the fight or flight nervous system, the sympathetic mode. You are at the mercy of the narcissist’s rampant regressed Shadow. The opposite occurs in public with the high level who worships his image. Here there is a major shift—the look of the face, the eyes, the movements, pace, style are transformed. The narcissist, an incredible method actor lights up with this charismatic false self. He/she turns it on like a light switch, a transformation that is highly impressive. 

How much longer can you tolerate the scream fits, volleys of temper, scathing glances, belittlings that leave you psychologically and physically weakened. You don’t and never did deserve to be treated this way. 

Make a stand now for yourself. You deserve to be treated with respect and deference. 

With this opening, you belong to yourself again–spontaneity, joy, awe, beauty, solitude, independence of thought.

I want to share some thoughts about the Shadow with you. 

For tens of thousands of yeaars man has been dealing with his Shadow in a variety of ways. Going back to the dawn of time when man first walked the earth upright, he has been infused with the Shadow parts of himself found in the deep unconscious of his psyche. 

Today we are still facing our Shadows. As humans we carry the inheritance of our Shadow selves. Tis is not a curse but an incredible boon to those who seek wholeness, individuation and the promise and the fulfillment of one’s unique creativity.

How to Deal with an Emotional Healing Crisis -TPS462

In today’s episode, I talk about the emotional healing crisis that happens when you release long-held emotions. I explain how emotions don’t just happen in your mind, but also happen in your physical body and how you can deal with the resulting discomfort.

Highlights

When you don’t express your emotions, there is a buildup of the “molecules of emotion” on the receptors of your cell. Because emotions are a form of energy, this buildup can cause physical symptoms.
I talk about some physical effects of holding in emotions.
When you make significant emotional changes, there is an energetic shift throughout your body and you have to would just to the new configuration.
Because most people don’t understand the idea of healing crises, they will often do things to stop the process.
I talk about the emotional healing crisis I’ve been going through.
As you start shifting to a new way of being, there’s a chance that you’re going to go through a healing crisis.
There is a wide variety of symptoms that you may experience when going through a healing crisis.
It takes time to take care of your body which is an incredible machine that requires maintenance.
If you get in touch with your body and learn how to communicate with your body, you’ll know what action to take when you feel a little off.
It’s important to learn at least a little bit about how your body works and to have people you can talk to about how your body works.
No one can know your body better than you.
The healing crisis is just something that happens – it isn’t bad – and if you can understand it better then you’ll know how to deal with it.

My Vulnerability Hangover

Maybe I said too much? Maybe I went too far in exposing myself? Those were my immediate thoughts after listening to my interview with Dr. Craig Heacock. Embracing my mortality means I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Right? I do believe that risking being vulnerable in an attempt to be authentic is the path to closeness and connection. Yet, there is no guarantee. Is it worth it?

Key Personality Traits of the Golden Boy High Level Narcissist

Charming, charismatic, gifted at luring you in and bringing you back when you have decided to leave them.

Golden boy high level narcissists seek escape and pleasure to the extreme. When things get tough they run off, escape to their pleasure domes, go on buying sprees, have exciting affairs, spent lots of money on bling–jewelry, fine clothes, fancy trips and exotic treks, endless shopping sprees.

Pathological bragging about what they own, what they purchaed, what they plan to buy, prominent schools they attended, their myriad successes, their grand plans to acquire more material largesse. 

Exceedingly vain–Constantly perfecting how they  look, clothing they wear, cars they drive, homes they purchase.

Excessive pathological self entitlement. He knows that he can control the lives of others, especially his spouses, children and inner social circle. 

When you fully comprehend that the golden boy narcissist cannot be your partner and is incapable of authentic empathy or compassion, being faithful to you, deeply appreciating you as an individual—–you finally see through the magnificent delusion he has created and that you at one time believed was true.

Now you are grounded in our own unique true reality, you are moving forward with perseverance and self assertion—discovering your own direction—coming back to your oriiginal self. 

I give you so much credit for this journey you have taken, leaving the high level narcissists and all others of this ilk.
