HOW TO KEEP A HIJACKAL FROM TEARING YOU DOWN

Ep. 224

Hijackals--passive-aggressive. narcissistic. anti-social folks--thrive on tearing you down. Sometimes, it's a slow picking at you. Sometimes, it's a constant beratement. Either way, you need to stop it from getting into your head and under your skin. And, if it's already there, I'll help you get it out. Listen in.


Hijackals--my word for people who hijack relationships for their own needs and purposes, and then relentlessly scavenge them for power, status, and control--feed on having power over you. It's what gets them up in the morning! Sad.


Hijackals thrive on tearing you down, wearing you down, and putting you down. It feeds that need for control. SO, they will say anything to you that keeps you small and makes them feel big. Nasty!



Whether the Hijackal you have in mind is your parent, sibling, partner, or adult child, subtly or crashingly crassly, they will find numerous ways to make you feel small, worthless, and insignificant. Does this sound familiar? Some of them only do it when fearful or stressed (that can be too much of the time!) and others live in that skin 24/7.


In this episode, I give you 9 ways to stop anyone from tearing you down. No, it has nothing to do with putting your hand over their mouth. AND, yes, it has everything to do with taking charge of yourself so that you can be Emerging Empowered!


HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY'S EPISODE:

  • What gaslighting is
  • How to stop believing the gaslighting
  • Stopping the manipulation of believing a narcissistic person's view of you
  • Changing your self-talk to what is accurate, true, and positive...no matter what a Hijackal says
  • Taking charge of what goes on in your head and saying "No!" to power games played by narcissists and other Hijackals


Are you willing to believe what you know to be true about you regardless of what a Hijackal tries to sell you? Great. I'm here to help.


Let's talk soon.

Recognize these fears and how the Hijackal feeds them.Oxford Languages defines fear as "an unplesasant emotion caused by the believe someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat." There are many roots to your fears: the places things grow from. When you were raised by, lived with, or left a Hijackal, you will have had your fears magnified by the experience, in most cases.Time to recognize these ten fears (there are many more) and how Hijackals prey on them to keep you scared, small, restricted, confined, and controlled. Nasty!Once you listen to this episode, you will be empowered to see how Hijackals use your fears and wounds to manipulate, control, and coerce you. With that knowledge, you can recognize the emotional abuse.

Recognizing Relationship Trauma - Past & Present

Ep. 232
Everyone experiences trauma differently. Frequently, folks don't recognize or acknowledge their trauma, either. This episode will help you understand how you may--or may not--have processed trauma, and why you may be recreating it, too.You cannot separate the mind from the body. They are constantly interacting and informing one another. When you have experienced trauma, both your mind and body are affected. And, you may not have realized what happened to you.Dr. Gabor Mate said, "Trauma is a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and now you're acting out of pain. It induces fear and now you're acting out of fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it's what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you."When you see that clearly, and you relate it to your experience, you can choose a healing and recovering journey. Vital to recognize if you'd like to change your life!HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY'S EPISODE:The body/mind connection when trauma is experienced3 immediate responses most people have to trauma whether they recognize them or not3 additional stages of trauma and their symptomsHow trauma creates a habitual dis-ease that can be healed.Want to talk about your relationship? .I'm here to help.Let's talk soon.RhobertaWant clarity, insights, strategies, and supportfrom me?

Why You Feel So Frozen, Stuck and Powerless With A Hijackal

Ep. 231
The energetics of relationships with Hijackals can shut you down emotionally, and even physically. Understanding what happens within yourself and why can help you thaw, move, and take action in your own best interests. You need to hear this to empower yourself and get unstuck!You are not powerless, although you may be feeling that way. You may be so worn down and torn down that you are overwhelmed by the negative energy that is always being sent your way.We are energetic beings. We need to be balancing the positive and negative energy, the heightened and depressed energy, and therefore, we need to recognize when we are receiving or feeling too much charge, or the opposite: feeling depleted and exhausted. And, we need to know what's causing it. In this episode, I talk about the energetic interchanges of relationships with Hijackal--narcissists and anti-social folks, too.HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY'S EPISODE:Energy exchanges can be damagingHow Hijackals are constantly sending "high charge: in your directionThe energetics of relationshipsWhat happens when you cannot safely discharge energyWant to talk about your relationship? .I'm here to help.Let's talk soon.RhobertaWant clarity, insights, strategies, and supportfrom me?
