How to build more intimacy in your romantic partnerships.

One of the most common relationship problems is a lack of intimacy.

 

Now, intimacy in relationships isn’t only about sex.

 

It goes beyond just the physical.

 

It’s about the feeling of closeness and connection on a mental, emotional, spiritual level as well.

 

And when you feel like your partner truly doesn’t get you on a deeper level, intimacy can be tough.

 

Maybe they just don’t get the way that you’re wired on the inside. Maybe they don’t have a clue about the inner workings of your soul.

 

And it feels soul-sucking to feel misunderstood and not seen in your relationship with the person that’s supposed to be one of the closest people to you.

 

Well, what if I told you that there was a way to bring back the intimacy in your romantic partnerships on a mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical level?

 

Stay-tuned for this juicy podcast episode on the 4 ways that you can use personality types to build more intimacy in your romantic relationships.

How to navigate conflict with your loved ones using personality types.

Have you ever felt criticized by a partner, co-worker, boss, a friend, or family member before?
 
What did that feel like? Did you ever feel like shutting down? Or maybe you felt defensive? Or maybe you’ve felt the need to fight back?
 
Experiencing conflict. This is never easy, for anyone.
 
But if you’re an empath, you know how incredibly tough it can feel to experience conflict on an emotional and energetic level.
 
Having a nervous system that is highly sensitive and perceptive to the emotions and energy of others can feel rough and shaken up while experiencing tough situations or people.
 
Maybe when you and your partner get into an argument with your partner, you notice that they always need to be right.
 
Or maybe when you’re experiencing a moment of tension with a friend, family member, or co-worker, you notice that they’re always focused on controlling the conversation.
 
Then after we find ourselves royally frustrated, the following thoughts tend to pop up for us:
 
“Why do they always act this way?”
 
“Why can’t we see eye to eye?”
 
“Why is this person always fixated on x, y, and z?”
 
Or “Maybe we’re just incompatible.”
 
But, what if I told you that there was a way to help you navigate conflict with more understanding and compassion for yourself and others?
 
Stay tuned for this episode that will serve up a fresh perspective on how to use personality types as a tool to improve your relationships by helping you navigate conflict with your loved ones.

3 Reasons why you should practice the art of being assertive.

Being assertive is something that we hear conflicting information about.

 

On one hand, we’ve been told that it’s a strength to be assertive in life. That it’s a necessary thing to be able to accomplish important things in our lives.

 

But on the other hand, we also get judged for being assertive.

 

I think the confusion comes up when we aren’t clear on the definition of assertiveness.

 

Assertiveness is the ability to stand up for the needs and rights of yourself and others, without the need to be forceful or aggressive.

 

It’s a core communication skill.

 

It is practicing the art of being direct while asking for what you want and need, in a calm and objective manner.

 

You can still be kind and respectful while asserting yourself. You can still be assertive while being respectful of other people’s thoughts, feelings, beliefs.

 

It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Communicating with assertiveness is direct and respectful.

 

But, if you’re an empath, being assertive might feel scary, uncomfortable, and difficult.

 

We’re highly empathetic and tuned-in to the energy and emotions of others around us. It can be uncomfortable to be exposed to and even absorb other people’s reactions to us being assertive.

 

At the end of the day, we just want things to be in harmony and we just want to co-exist in peace with the people around us.

 

So why would we even bother with being assertive.

 

Well, stay tuned for this valuable episode on the three reasons why practicing the art of assertiveness is necessary for an empath.

5 Reasons why we take things so personally.

When something bad happens or when someone says something that we don’t like, we all have the ability to take things personally.

 

We get triggered. We get upset. And before you know it, we’re energetically thrown off.

 

And then we say things like, “What the heck?” “Why’d that person have to treat me that way?” or “What the heck is their problem?”

 

So, we grab our phones, put on our “why me” caps and vent to our friends, partners, or family members, and before you know it, one of them tells you:

 

“Aww, don’t worry about it”

 

or

 

“It’ll be fine, just forget about it”

 

or

 

“Let it go.”

 

Or the, “I’m sure they didn’t mean to say it like that.”

 

And just like that, we’re re-triggered all over again. Order up! You’ve just gotten another serving of taking shit personally.

 

People typically say these statements to make us feel better, but it only makes us feel way worse. And they’re missing the point.

 

But have you ever wondered why we take things so personally?

 

Let’s talk about the psychology behind this.

 

Join me for this insightful podcast episode where I share 5 reasons why we take things so personally.

 

Wondering what you can do to practice the art of not taking things so personally?

 

Be kinder to yourself, have compassion for yourself as a whole, and give yourself grace to make mistakes (and learn from trial and error).

 

One way to develop more self-connection and self-compassion is to get to know yourself better on a deeper level. On a level of inner wiring.

 

If you’re an empath who is interested in learning about your empath nature and your personality type, I’d love to invite you to join me in my Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.

10 Signs that you’ve outgrown a friendship or relationship.

Have you ever had to let go of a friendship or relationship?

 

We all outgrow friendships, partners, and loved ones throughout our life.

 

But it can be hard not to take it personally. And honestly, it can feel heart-wrenching, confusing, and frustrating.

 

Maybe you’ve known these people since elementary, middle, or high school. Or maybe you’ve been tight with this person since your college days. Or shoot, maybe you’ve been in a romantic relationship with them for a while.

 

No matter what the situation looks like for you, it can be incredibly painful and heartbreaking to cut off a friend, family member, or loved one.

 

And it can be excruciating when you’re on the receiving end of a friendship or relationship break up as well.

 

But the good news is, you’re not alone.

 

Outgrowing our friends, family, and loved ones is something that naturally happens often as we grow up and age throughout life.

 

Our life paths change, our personal values become more solidified, and we start to recognize our worth and what we know that we deserve in our relationships.

 

Which can be as simple as being loved, respected, and understood.

 

Mainstream media and society has taught us that we’re “supposed to” have BFFs (best friends forever), or that we have to stay in romantic relationships til death due us part, and stick it through with toxic family relationships in the name of loyalty and commitment.

 

This narrative is not helpful. Life is dynamic and ever changing, and we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment when we expect a person to act or behave a certain way, for a lifetime.

 

In the online space, we hear a lot of the stereotypical “don’t be afraid to cut them off” statements when it comes to toxic relationships.

 

But what about the more nuanced side of letting go of relationships?

 

I mean, you can also be incompatible without it being a “toxic relationship.” And it can still be time for you to move on.

 

People can only meet you at the level in which they’ve met themselves.

 

Stay-tuned for this podcast episode on the topic of outgrowing relationships, normalizing the emotional process of letting go, and seeing the upside in all of it.

 

If setting boundaries or making mindset shifts is something that you’ve struggled with during challenging situations like these, I’d love to help!

 

These are all things that I cover more deeply in my Empath Empowerment Coaching Program, my private 1:1 coaching program to help empower empaths through learning about and harnessing their gift of deep feeling and sensitivity.

3 common misconceptions about self-care.

We live in a society where effort, ambition, drive, and constant “doing” is rewarded.

 

And when we do all of the things to keep up with the busy world, we end up exhausted, overwhelmed, depleted, and burnt out.

 

As humans in general, we weren’t meant to operate at machine-like hyperspeed. We weren’t meant to live our lives on overdrive.

 

And if you’re an empath, highly-sensitive person, introvert this probably hits harder on your nervous system.

 

So, what do we do to manage our well being and energy reserves in a seemingly chaotic and disruptive world?

 

Self-care.

 

Ok. Before you start rolling your eyes at me thinking this is another blanket call to action on self-care, give me just a little more of your time to offer you a different perspective on self-care and not only it’s benefits, but it’s necessity in your life.

 

Still skeptical? Let’s dive even deeper.

 

Join me for this episode on self-care, where I clear up 3 common self-care myths, share the benefits of having a self-care practice, and give you actionable self-care tips and ideas to help you get started on your self-care journey today.

5 Telltale signs that you’re emotionally overwhelmed.

If you've ever felt like you were going a little bit crazy, have you ever considered that you might just be emotionally overwhelmed?

 

Being an empath is pretty neat. We’re highly-intuitive and we have the gift of high-sensitivity.

 

We have the ability to sense and feel the emotions of others very well. We’re just that tuned in.

 

But this can also be challenging for us because being this tuned in can be draining and we can feel emotionally overwhelmed.

 

I mean, have you ever had an interaction with someone who was having a rough day? How did you feel afterwards? Irritated, grumpy, or maybe upset too? And then soon enough, the rest of your day feels like it’s off kilter.

 

It’s rough being caught in the riptide of complex emotions from both others and ourselves.

 

But what is emotional overwhelm anyway? It is a state that we enter when the weight and intensity of the emotions we’re feeling feel like too much for us to handle or process.

 

So what do you think, have you ever felt emotionally overwhelmed before?

 

Join Naomi for this brand new podcast episode, where she shares the five telltale signs of emotional overwhelm in empaths. 

 

Can't wait to see you on the inside!

How to transform trauma into self-connection and compassion.

One of the most beautiful questions to ask anyone in pain is, “What rises for you when _____ (ex. Someone mistreats you, or leaves you feeling abandoned or unseen)?”. This gives us  room to observe what rises within us without wanting to fix or change it.

 

It allows us to notice that we’re  in pain. To see what’s rising in our bodies. And it gives us the awareness that we do have choices. It’s about remembering that we always have a choice. It’s about cultivating it and not demanding that the pain leaves immediately. It’s a journey.

 

Experiencing trauma and grief is no walk in the park. None of this is easy. Reliving the prior pain of our traumatic experiences, allowing ourselves to be visibly vulnerable, befriending the inner critic, or attempting to heal the wounded spaces within us as we try to move on throughout our lives.

 

If you’ve been doing a lot of self-healing and releasing of old trauma, then this is the perfect podcast episode for you.

 

Grief can teach us many meaningful things. Although it can be incredibly painful, there’s an upside to allowing yourself to experience feeling the fullness of what it is to be human. My most recent podcast guest, Clare O’Sullivan said, “It’s not a pain free life, but a broader spectrum of life.”

 

“It’s about having patience at the threshold of pain, understanding the longing, and then comes the inspiration on how to continue to build your life in this moment.”

 

Things like depression, anxiety, and PTSD don’t need to impede us. They can simply just invite us to get closer to the truth of what life is like for us.

 

Cultivating compassion is a lifetime’s work. You have needs and it’s ok to long for harmony, beauty, and peace.

 

If you’re looking to make today more livable and foster more moments of connection in your life, then tune-in to this episode!

 

Remember. You matter. Give yourself space to fully inhabit and arrive home to yourself.

 

Clare O'Sullivan is a Resensitisation Through Compassion Teacher & Coach, who offers one-to-one coaching, online classes, and MBTI profiling.

 

She offers a compassionately held non-judgemental space which supports you to lovingly mediate and befriend your inner experience. To work with compassionate tools to navigate all that rises in your nervous system. A place where the experiences we describe as anxiety, depression and hyper-vigilance are approached not as blocks but as a communication from and within you, letting you know what you need and are longing for, and to identify what would make life wonderful for you.

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. 

 

Tune-in and let me know what you think of the episode!
