GASLIGHTING: Sneaky Emotional Abuse

Understanding the many faces of gaslighting helps you see it coming. Then, seeing it for what it is, you can discount it, reject and deny it. In this episode, I help you see ten faces of gaslighting that can help you recognize it for what it is: emotional abuse. The actual definition of gaslighting I like from is: “an increasing frequency of systematically withholding factual information from, and/or providing false information to, the victim – having the gradual effect of making them anxious, confused, and less able to trust their own memory and perception”It has so many faces, some that you might not immediately think of as gaslighting…until now. I often think of gaslighting as times when someone wants to define your reality for you, rather than trusting you and your senses. It’s nasty, as well as sneaky. It’s definite intention is to undermine your confidence in yourself in every way. Too often, it’s a successful ploy! ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:Why gaslighting is a huge issue in eroding self-confidence10 ways gaslighting shows up and how to recognize themExamples of gaslightingWhy it is essential to recognize the different ways a #Hijackal will attempt to gaslight youHopefully, by the time you hear all ten, you’ll say “No More!” A person who thinks they can tell you what you think, feel, need, want, prefer, or remember is a person to watch out for. Beware, though, because they wear you down, you may have a tendency to believe them. Don’t! They are using and abusing you, and you deserve to be treated with respect, care, love, and honesty.

How Toxic Relationships Can Wear Down Your Body & Ruin Your Health – Guest: Dr. Elizabeth Huges

You may think that you’re experiencing the natural wear and tear on your health. But, if you’re in a toxic relationship, it is making things so much worse! Learn about the most likely ways your body and its immune system can respond to toxic relationships with narcissistic people, or antisocial people. Talk about wear and tear!!! Two things that cause physical health issues (among many) start with emotional abuse: stress and isolation. Both of those are present in most relationships with Hijackals, right? Constant stress and the pressure to not talk about difficulties with others outside the relationship. Very common. In this episode, I share some research findings from Dr. Gabor Mate that relate to this where he said, “The very same brain centers that interpret and feel physical pain also become activates during experiences of emotional rejection.” Sound familiar? This can be terribly enhanced if, perchance, you had a narcissistic mother–a Hijackal mother–and then went on to be in a relationship with another Hijackal. It takes such a toll on you! Dr. Hughes has a wonderfully refreshing approach to medicine as she tempers Western medicine with Eastern thought and practices. Enjoy her insights! HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:What is the “rodent brain” and how it affects usWhat happens in your body when it is on alert too long due to the stress of a toxic relationshipWhat causes “fuzzy brain”How stress affects the body from production of different hormonesHow trauma–old or current–affects the body, emotional trauma, physical trauma, sexual trauma, abandonment How the immune system distinguishes what is toxic and what is safeHow this all relates to relationships with difficult people, toxic people, narcissists, psychopaths, sociopaths, borderlines I hope you find connections within yourself to what in your relationships might be causing health issues. Often, until you realize that, you can have physical symptoms that seemingly cannot be explained. This episode might help with that. Be good to yourself.Rhoberta GUEST: ELIZABETH HUGHES, MDDr. Hughes is a dermatologist and former faculty member at Stanford University, where she taught dozens of physicians, including many nationally-recognized leaders in the field of dermatology.Nearly twenty years after graduating from medical school, Dr. Hughes witnessed the rapid resolution of a patient’s chronic illness without any medical intervention. This event caused Dr. Hughes to question everything she had been taught about health and illness, and to look for better answers for “incurable” conditions.Her quest lead her to investigate ancient spiritual traditions, non-western systems of health and healing, placebo research, and the emerging sciences of epigenetics and psychoneuroimmunology. In the process, she became a registered yoga teacher, a certified health coach, and a practitioner of several energy medicine modalities.Dr. Hughes has developed a revolutionary approach to health based on establishing trust in the human body. Dr. Hughes believes that once each person has cultivated a deep and abiding trust in the power of the human body, our experience of health and illness will change for the better forever.FREE GIFT FROM ELIZABETH:The Stress Antidote GuideTheStressAntidote.comCONTACT INFO FOR ELIZABETH HUGHES:Website: ElizabethHughesMD.comPodcasts:LinkedIn: @ElizabethHughesMDFacebook: @Twitter: ——————————————————————————————————————————–Want clarity, insights, strategies, and support from me, Dr. Rhoberta Shaler? We can talk: Introductory session for new clients, $97CONNECT WITH DR.

Hubris and Greed – An Unholy Alliance

The person of hubris and greed is incapable of having an authentic loving relationship with another individual. 

High level narcissists are obsessive climbers, forging upward socially and economically, willing to betray, lie in any fashion to keep others from reaching the summits of their delusional manic ambitions. 

Being a high climber reinforces their feelings of superiority and excessive self-entitlement. They have risen above all the rest – superior beings! Hubris runs rampant within them. 

To fill the unbearable emptiness of their true self, high level narcissists wander through their days in delusion and denial using defense mechanisms that protect them from the true reality of ever knowing themselves or forming an authentic deep loveing relationship.

How to Finally Believe A Hijackal Doesn't Love You

You want to believe that a Hijackal–a toxic, difficult, perhaps narcissistic person–love you. You SO want to believe it. They don’t have much love to give and here’s 16 ways to recognize that they aren’t giving it to you. An eye-opener! People who love you listen to you. They want to listen to you. And, you want to listen to them. You’re interested in each other. Not so with a #Hijackal. The Hijackal is interested in themselves and want you to be interested in them, too. Sure, in the beginning, it’s different. That’s how they hook you as I spoke about in the last episode, How Hijackals Hook You Into Toxic Relationships. You know from listening to the episode on the 3 MUST-HAVES in a Healthy Adult Relationship that equality is a must. Do you believe you have that in your relationship with a Hijackal? I’ll be not. You may want to bring up a couple of instances when there seemed to be equality, but that’s part of the problem. There’s supposed to be equality all the time. There’s an example of the love that’s missing in a toxic relationship: love. Everything is transactional with a toxic person, a person with narcissistic tendencies, and those with anti-social tendencies as well. They don’t really have love to give you, but they will appear to to have you give them what they want: a transaction. I know, it’s not great to hear that straightforwardly, but it’s absolutely important to recognize it. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:The transactional nature of toxic relationships16 ways that love relationships differ from toxic relationshipsWhy you must not continue to believe that you are loved and make excuses for poor behaviorMy definition of emotional abuse, and why you are best to keep it in mindClear ways to recognize real love to compare and contrast with what a Hijackal offers you You SO want to believe that a Hijackal loves you, I know. Sometimes, it really seems that they do, but only when it serves their purposes and gets them what they want. Sad, and unfortunately, true. Hard to hear, but time to recognize it.

How to Be Psychologically Grounded in A delusional World

At times the earth feels unsteady beneath our psychological feet. We experience uncertainties, even fears and trepidations that haunt us in wakefulness and sleep. 

In seasons of confusion and uncertainty it is particularly helpful to view ourselves with both objectivity and compassion. These are some of the steps that yu can take to bring emotional and psychophysiological balance to your days. 

Do movement and exercise that boosts your immune system, raises your mood, lowers your anxiety and helps you sleep. 

Perform simple yoga poses like child’s pose that gently stretches your muscles, calms your nervous system and puts you in the restorative parasympathetic mode.

Activate your vagus nerve through diaphragmatic breathing.

Listen to your dreams. They are revealing invaluable messages. When you awaken from a dream, take a few minutes to digest before you get up. Remember, dreams are a connection between your conscious and unconscious mind.


High Level Narcissists – Clever at Re-inventing Their False Selves

The high level narcissist is a gifted conjurer – creating a series of false selves that are believable to those who become involved with him/her. Like a great method actor is a schemer. 

The high level narcissist develops a series of false selves that are charming, charismatic, engaging, designed to attract others to him and from whom he acquires narcissistic supplies that inflate his/her ego. 

The high level narcissist fools most people – that’s how clever and cunning they are. 

At some point you awaken to the true nature of the high level narcissist. Realize that you were participating in a false disingenuous non relationship. 

You are no longer on the receiving end of the high level’s clever disguises and ruthless psychological machinations. 

You are taking a stand for your original creative self. You listen closely to the wisdom inside, the core of truth that defines your identity.
