Five Powerful Ways Abusive Narcissists Get Inside Your Head

Originally posted on Self-Care Haven:


In popular culture, the term “narcissistic” is thrown about quite loosely, usually referring to vanity and self-absorption. This reduces narcissism to a common quality that everyone possesses and downplays the symptoms demonstrated by people with the actual disorder. While narcissism does exist on a spectrum, narcissism as a full-fledged personality disorder is quite different.

People who meet the criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder or those who have traits of Antisocial Personality Disorder  can operate in extremely manipulative ways within the context of intimate relationships due to their deceitfulness, lack of empathy and their tendency to be interpersonally exploitative. Although I will be focusing on narcissistic abusers in this post, due to the overlap of symptoms in these two disorders, this post can potentially apply to interactions with those who have ASPD to an extent.

It’s important in any kind of relationship that we learn to identify the red flags when interacting with people who display malignant narcissism and/or…

Benefits of Vernix – it’s amazing stuff (and here’s the scientific research to prove it)

Originally posted on Birth Bliss:

Here are several abstracts on the antibacterial properties of vernix.  There’s a good reason why babies should not be bathed right away after birth.

The power of vernix is truly astounding.  Its main benefits are its various antimicrobial properties, which help protect a newborn against a wide variety of infections.  A secondary benefit is that vernix is highly moisturizing.  To such a degree that many cosmetic companies have researched it.

I posted this blog, because sometimes hospitals routinely wash this stuff away.  And while, I certainly understand the universal precautions for hospital personnel; if you wouldn’t touch a mom’s vaginal fluids without gloves, then it makes sense you shouldn’t touch the baby who just came from her vagina without gloves either.  The benefits for infants are too important to ignore.

If you consider the drug resistant staph sometimes found in hospitals, perhaps parents would prefer that hospital personnel wear gloves…

Never To old for Muay Thai !

Originally posted on MuayTash:

One of my biggest fears as a fighter is that one day I will be too old to fight anymore. This scares the hell out of me. The one thing in this world that makes me feel complete has a used by date. I’m now 30 years imagesold and I haven’t yet had any children so I think my time is coming near. I didn’t start Muay Thai until I was in my mid 20s and I always wished I had started earlier so I would have more time to develop into an experienced skilled fighter. I have always thought that I had started late and didn’t have enough time to become the fighter I wanted to be. Over the years I have come across ladies who are fighting into their late 30s, 40s and even 50s! Some of those ladies didn’t even start training until they were in their…

oh wow… thinking deeply about the connection between myself and my un-born son. Nature is truly, a wonderful, personal gift. . As I am about to give birth to my 5th child and 5th Son, thinking about everything that is about to unfold and what has already evolved to this point in my life. Having really embraced this pregnancy, with all of my being ~ my body, mind and soul have finally connected. I have been able to focus on bringing another beautiful soul into this world at the same time as I am healing and growing. The lessons I have learned through this experience have been truly mind-blowing. That is pretty cool when you deeply think about it. Birthing at a more mature age is completely different from being a Teenage mother of 3 boys, at that time. I have had the blessing to be able to have grown up with my young men, they are so much fun , I love being their Mother and they are my best friends for life ………..that’s a cool reward, as woman/parent I think. …………. This being my last little ninja, I am looking forward to the new experiences and opportunities, as a woman and a mother . But first the next part is going to fucking hurt like a mother fucker .. All that to me is my understanding of a gift from nature

War Monger Alert: Australia Could Join The Bombing Raids In Iraq Within Days!

Originally posted on Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective:

They are not yet committing to bombing Syria but that is just a matter of time. Once they’re there what is bombing the next city back to the stone age. All they need to be told it that they are bombing ISIS/ISIL for the good of the West!

Australia could join air strikes on Islamic State (IS) insurgents in a matter of days as the final hurdles to participation are cleared, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says.

The federal government’s national security committee and the cabinet will meet in the coming days to discuss the action, while Bishop said on Sunday she expected the legal framework for Australian action in Iraq could be agreed with Baghdad shortly.

Bishop has also said Australia could be involved in strikes on IS, also known as ISIL, in Syria but cautioned the different legal framework – including the fact that Australia does not recognise the Syrian…

The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing.

Retreat, Replenish, Restore – Mercury Stations Retrograde in Cancer

Originally posted on virgo magic:

Greetings from bed. Cooperating with the current cosmic energies, I’ve returned to bed to write this post, cozy under the covers with a cup of tea and cat by my side.

Mercury doesn’t officially turn Retro until Saturday, but I’m already noticing those tell-tale signs – you too? The urge for more BEING and less DOING; fuzzy-headedness leading to mistakes, miscommunications and memory lapses (my editor over at New Connexion just emailed me about an erroneous astro-date I put in my column – me! with four Virgo planets!!); the need to reschedule and rearrange existing plans; unexpected delays and technical glitches.

As Mercury the Messenger – typically speedy planet of connection, communication and intellect – slows down and prepares to reverse directions, we’re called to do the same. All the “re” words apply: retreat, regenerate, reflect, reconsider, review… Mercury stations Retrograde on June 7 (until July 1) in comfort-seeking…
