Let’s end the empath victim narrative, when it comes to empaths and narcissists.

Have you ever had an experience with a narcissist? 

 

Maybe you’ve had to deal with one at work, with your family, in a friendship, or maybe even a romantic partnership?

 

No matter the case, it’s never an easy type of relationship to manage.

 

And many empaths feel like they’ll always be victims of narcissists.

 

Now, I’m not a licensed mental health professional and if you’re dealing with someone who is narcissistic or has a NPD diagnosis and you need help, please take a look at what sorts of resources you have in your local area or online (there are people who are licensed and trained to help you with these situations. 

 

I’m here to break it down + bust a specific myth and self-limiting belief. And that myth, “I’m an empath, and I will always be a victim and a magnet to narcissists.”

 

As empaths, sometimes we have narcissistic partners, family members, or loved ones. It happens, but it’s not easy to deal with to say the least. 

 

Empaths are deeply compassionate and giving, narcissists thrive on. 

 

The empath gives and gives, then they feel used, drained, and defeated, and the narcissist continues the chaos

 

If you’ve ever dealt with a narcissist, you won’t want to miss this podcast episode. 

 

Join me in my latest podcast episode, where I talk about empaths, narcissists, and ending the empath victim narrative.

7 ways that excessive self-criticism is holding you back.

Is self-criticism holding you back?

 

Self-criticism is the act of criticizing one’s own faults or shortcomings.

 

It is when we typically experience negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves, specifically about our behaviors and/or personal attributes.

 

While many people have trouble with pointing out their own flaws, empaths can easily get caught up in excessive self-criticism.

 

We’re highly-sensitive and highly perceptive, therefore it can be tough not to get into our own heads about all of our shortcomings.

 

While having self-awareness is healthy and an important skill to have in personal development, in our careers, and in our relationships (as far as learning from our mistakes), we as empaths can take self-criticism a little overboard until it wears away at our self-confidence and self-esteem.

 

A lot of the time, this comes from negative experiences we had in our childhood with caregivers, parents, or authority figures.

 

Example: If you had a parent that was authoritarian-like (controlling, rigid, critical), then it could’ve had a negative impact on our perception of ourself and our worth.

 

But we’re not here today to point fingers or blame our parents. We’re just here to shine a light and dig a little deeper.

 

If you’ve ever struggled with excessive self-criticism before, then you won’t want to miss this brand new podcast episode where Naomi shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the 7 ways that excessive self-criticism is holding you back as an empath.

 

Tune-in and let us know what you think!

 

*Note: Excessive self-criticism creates inner misconceptions that are deeply rooted in self-limiting beliefs. And self-limiting beliefs live in the subconscious mind. Which is why NLP is a great tool to release them!

 

These types of limiting beliefs are the key things that we work on releasing in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program, my signature 1:1 private coaching service for empaths.

 

If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!

Speaking your truth is necessary: 6 Reasons why empaths should speak their truth.

Have you ever had a hard time speaking up for yourself? Has it ever been difficult to share your truth with others? Or have you ever wanted to share your opinion with someone but you were worried about upsetting them?

 

Empaths can feel EVERYTHING. We can feel other people’s emotional reaction. We can feel their uncomfortable emotions. And it can be tough not to absorb the emotional states of others, even when this isn’t our baggage to carry.

 

Many of us want to avoid conflict at all costs. Some of us are recovering people pleasers. And all of this makes it that much harder to speak up and speak our truth.

 

But, when we don’t speak our truth, it hampers us from being able to successfully advocate for and assert our needs, which can lead to energetic and emotional overwhelm and drain.

 

And while there are many factors at play for the reason behind why it’s difficult for some of us to speak our truth, one of the reasons is that many of us empaths don’t realize is that these patterns of behavior could be rooted in a deeper self-limiting belief, which is, ”It is too hard to speak my truth. It will only upset others.”

 

So,  what do you think? How hard is it for you to speak your truth as an empath? Did you struggle with it in the past? What advice would you have given yourself back then?

 

Join Naomi for a new podcast episode where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths and the fear of speaking their truth.

 

If you’re an empath and if you’ve ever struggled with speaking up and speaking your truth, then this is the perfect podcast episode for you because Naomi shares six reasons why it’s necessary for empaths to speak their truth.

Energy is everything: How to use your emotional guidance system when hiring a life coach.

So, you’re an intuitive person. Maybe you’ve always been able to get a good read on people and you have a natural talent with reading between the lines.

 

Or maybe you have a knack for noticing patterns and connections between people, places, and experiences. And you naturally intuit information from your gut instincts.

 

But once we have the language around being an intuitive person, the next question that many of us start to ask is, “How can I strengthen my intuition?” “And how can I learn how to use my intuition as a tool to help me in my life?”

 

I’m here today to let you in on a little intuitive secret. Did you know that your emotions are one of the main ways that your intuition can work for you?

 

Our emotions are constantly communicating important messages to us.

 

You know what I’m talking about. I mean, have you ever felt a bad feeling about engaging in a certain experience or situation? Or maybe you’ve had a bad feeling in your gut about working with/dating/befriending a specific person.

 

Whatever your story is, I bet that on the flip side, you’ve also felt that strong feeling of inner knowing too. That feeling of deep trust and that strong inner knowing when something or someone is right for you.

 

Your energy and emotions don’t lie. Trust them.

 

Join Naomi for a brand new podcast episode where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on empaths and trusting the energy and emotions that they feel, especially when it comes to selecting a coach to add to your network of support.

 

Tune-in to learn how to use your emotions as an intuitive tool to vet out who you allow into your circle of support.

Don’t hate the player, respect the boundary: Here’s 6 Boundaries you don’t have to feel guilty about setting.

Have you ever felt guilty about saying no or turning a request or invitation down?

 

It can be hard to say no if you’re an Empath. A lot of us are recovering people pleasers and we just want to help others and make them happy.

 

But then we fall into a cycle where we end up tolerating behavior that does not serve us.

 

We end up putting those who value us the least first.

 

Then we become resentful, drained, and overwhelmed for a number of reasons but the main one is that we end up helping others at the detriment of ourselves.

 

Saying no while feeling empowered can be a rough one for empaths.

 

What we don’t realize is that we most likely need better boundaries as an Empath.

 

Join Naomi for an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths, boundaries, and the things we feel guilty about when setting healthy boundaries in our lives.

 

You won’t want to miss this episode because she covers the 6 boundaries that you don’t have to feel bad for setting as an empath.

Are you ignoring red flags? Here’s 5 Common Empath triggers.

What triggers you the most? Is it being micromanaged? Or maybe it’s when people lack empathy or take advantage of the good-hearted? Maybe it’s having your feelings invalidated.

 

No matter what triggers you the most, I think that one thing that we can all agree on as human beings is that we all can get triggered at some point in our everyday lives. 

 

And we definitely know when we’re triggered when we’re upset, pissed, sad, frustrated, angry, disappointed, or heartbroken. But are we always super clear on the reason WHY we’re triggered?

 

And would gaining more clarity on what triggers us on an individual, personal level be helpful in better managing the wave of strong and sometimes overwhelming emotions that come flooding in each time we’re triggered?

 

Let’s find out! Join Naomi for this helpful podcast episode where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths and triggers. 

 

If triggers hit close to home for you, then you won’t want to miss out on this episode because she shares five common empath triggers and she offers up a fresh perspective on how we can view triggers in a different light (one that actually positions triggers as a tool for growth, rather than a burden that victimizes you).

 

Can’t wait to see you in the episode!

Stop waiting for a permission slip: 10 Things Empaths don’t need permission to do.

As empaths, it can be tough not to get caught up in thinking we need to get permission from others.

 

As children and even in adulthood, we’ve been conditioned by our caregivers, teachers, or other authority figures to seek the “okay” from them for just about everything.

 

Growing up, we had to ask permission to use the bathroom, or to eat, or before we spoke in class, before we could play outside, if we could see our friends, etc.

We’ve been taught to seek counsel before making any decisions for ourselves.

We’ve been trained not to trust ourselves, our intuition, or our gut instincts (even though we have those inner “I told you so” moments all of the time).

We ask our partners or lovers if “this looks good” on us before we go out and show ourselves.

And we’ve been taught to rely on what “makes sense” and “logic” over our inner knowing (the knowing from comes from your heart).

All of this programming then starts to plant self-limiting beliefs within us and our subconscious mind.

 

We start to believe that having freedom in making our own decisions is a privilege and not a right.

 

Here’s your wake up call my fellow empath. THE ONLY PERSON YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM IS YOU.

Tired of letting others control your emotional experience? Here’s how to take your power back as an Empath.

Let’s clear up one huge misconception. NOBODY. IS. IN. CHARGE. OF YOU.

 

One more time for my fellow empaths sitting in the nosebleeds...NOBODY IS IN CHARGE OF YOU.

 

You are in charge of your life. Nobody is in charge of your emotional experience or how you respond either.

 

You are more powerful than you allow yourself to believe.

 

For us empaths, the real issue is when we give our power away to others.

 

Join Naomi on this podcast episode, where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths and emotional boundaries. She shares her story about how she used to get caught up in victim mentality while growing up (ex. why are others doing these cruel, disrespectful, unnecessary things to me?) and how she realized that she wasn’t yet skilled in knowing her emotional and energetic needs at that time.

 

If you've ever struggled with setting and maintaining healthy boundaries (while trying to keep the peace at all costs), then this is the perfect podcast episode for you. 

 

Join Naomi as she dives deep into a conversation on the cycle of giving your emotional power away and how to take your emotional sovereignty back.

You’re not imagining it. What you have is the gift of intuition.

Are you intuitive, empathic, or highly-sensitive? Have you ever felt like you’re probably just imagining the insights that you intuit just because they can’t be proved with logic?

Until we have the language around being an intuitive person, we tend to assume that we’re just crazy. And we internalize it.

My latest podcast guest, Lauren Sapala said, “You’re not imagining it. This is real. What you have is the gift of intuition.”

Join me for a special guest interview with Lauren, where we talk about being intuitive and creative mothers and digital entrepreneurs, experiencing the mom guilt that comes with making the time for your own creative expression, and tempering our expectations around making time for our creative pursuits and passions.

If you’re an INFJ, INFP, HSP, or Empath, then this is just the episode for you. Lauren and I dive deep into the topic of identity and the importance of not letting personality types put you in a box. You’ll get a closer look at the nuanced differences of personality type (ex. Being an introvert but also being an empath) and we also dispel some empath myths and misconceptions (yep, being an empathic isn’t just an enhanced sympathy response). We also cover common empath experiences, stereotypes, self-acceptance, and the necessity of communicating your boundaries

Tune-in to the episode to join in on the conversation!

Lauren Sapala is the author of The INFJ Writer, Firefly Magic: Heart Powered Marketing for Highly Sensitive Writers, and The INFJ Revolution, as well as The West Coast Trilogy, an autobiographical fiction series.

She is also a writing coach for writers of the INFJ and INFP personality type and blogs about writing, creativity and personality theory at laurensapala.com.

When she’s not writing about INFJs and INFPs, she spends her time writing transgressive fiction.

You can connect with Lauren at: laurensapala.com.
