2012 has been an incredible year of liberation, growth and movement away from narcissistic abuse and into creating the true lives that we deeply desire and truly do deserve.
2012 saw the birth of the Narcissism and Relationships blog, I am simply astounded with the community that has developed here, and all of you who leave wonderful comments, share your stories and so selflessly dedicate your energy to helping and inspiring others.
I love writing articles for you all each week and I will continue to be writing many more articles for you in 2013.
Please continue to share your thoughts and comments on the articles. I love reading every single one of them! Also please don’t hesitate to suggest what you would like to see in future articles, I always pay very close attention to your suggestions.
I would like to announce that New Life Newsletter has now exceeded 10,000 subscribers! What a tremendous number that is. It truly illustrates that Narcissistic Abuse is a global phenomenon that requires much more attention and awareness.
I am incredibly thrilled with the narcissistic abuse ‘thriver’ community that has evolved from people who are getting results from NARP and growing together in the community Facebook Page. I believe that this rare community is demonstrating the empowering results that can occur (in record time) when individuals are focusing on the deep healing of Self.
What I’ve Been Up To
Two weeks ago a girlfriend prompted me with a request to join her on a trip to Cairns which is a tropical location at the top of the north east coast of Australia.
It’s been over a year since I’ve taken any sort of break from my work so I thought this was perfect timing to take some time off. I strive to listen to what my mind and body is telling me, and lately it has been telling that it is time for some essential rest and relaxation to rejuvenate my energy for the coming year.
I have been in Cairns now for a couple of weeks and I am loving it! I am extremely glad that I listened to my soul and decided to take some time off for me, it’s exactly what I needed.
Let me share with you what I have been up to the past two weeks.
Day 1 My girlfriend and I went to Bederra Island which is a small island near Dunk island. The island is very remote and only has 7 homes on the island.
We stayed in an incredible house for a day and night before coming back to the mainland. It was an incredible experience with panoramic views and beautiful lagoons to float and snorkel in. The island experience came complete with an outside shower and toilet.
This is the view outside bathroom at the island where the shower was located. So Peaceful!
Then on day 2 we came back to the mainland to stay in a gorgeous two story holiday home 50 meters from the beach front with an incredible view of Dunk Island. Unlike the residence at the island, this beautiful house had air conditioning.
Our days consisted of relaxing, floating on large inflatable thongs in the swimming pool, and trips to the main town of Mission Beach. Mission beach was severely hit by cyclone Yasi two years ago, and unfortunately this beautiful spot has suffered, it is very quiet according to locals rather than being the thriving holiday destination it used to be.
This the scenery from a restaurant at Mission Beach. According to locals the amount of coconut trees since cyclone Yasi have been substantially reduced.
We are presently staying in a lovely apartment in Cairns which overlooks the harbor. We went to Cairns in order to get our scuba diving licenses.
On day 3 of the course was my first ever experience of being an underwater diver. I couldn’t believe how amazing the experience was. Where I am diving is The Great Barrier Reef, a tropical underwater paradise of incredible coral, amazing colorful sea life, and a beautiful water temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. No wet suit required!
On the first dive of the day I saw a harmless reef shark, an incredible moray eel, and incredible fish too numerous to identify. The coral needless to say is absolutely out of this world.
With the second dive of the day fish followed our team of six for a great part of the dive, and as we were perched on the sea bed going through emergency and safety procedures they were hovering inches from our mask.
I cannot recommend this experience enough! To spend just over an hour in one’s of the most beautiful displays of underwater nature has left me in total awe. Diving is definitely going to become a part of my life from now on.
Updates and What’s In Store for 2013
Over the holiday season I will be taking a break from writing articles and recording radio shows, although I will continue to do healings with clients and communicating with NARP members via email.
I will resume articles and radio shows on the blog for New Life Newsletter and Empowered Life and Love subscribers in a few weeks time.
I have a lot in store for 2013 and I can’t wait to get back and provide content for you all.
Early in 2013 I will be starting off with something never done before on the blog, a month long challenge that I will be encouraging everyone to join in on. It will be called something like the “30 Day challenge” and it will involve releasing co-dependency, emotional mastery, deservedness and boundary setting. It will be for Empowered Life and Love subscribers so if you are interested in that and are not a subscriber please do here. You will also get a free e-Book.
Also much more to come including more videos like “How The Phenonemon of Narcissistic Abuse Occurs and How You Can Overcome it”. I plan to have a dedicated studio set up in 2013 so I can start producing lots more videos for you all.
Please know holiday time can be an incredible ‘space’ to commit to healing you. Often this is very important, especially for those of you who are feeling the inevitable pain of the ‘first’ holiday season since being narcissistically abused.
I hope you all have a lovely holiday season, and I hope the New Year brings progression to your personal journey and much more happiness.
What are you doing over the holiday season? Are you taking time out for yourself? Spending time with family and loved ones? Tell me what you will be up to in the comments below.
