Desperate Mothers

Desperate Mothers

If you were born to a mother who was desperate to have you, then you’re probably going to exhibit many of the traits of a sociopath. Desperate mothers conceive in the emotion of desperation, which affects the child enormously for a great majority of their life. When the child is first born, he or she is expected to meet the needs of the mother at the cost of their own. Unless the mother gets help to change, then throughout her offspring’s childhood the mother’s expectation continues. This is a truly narcissistic and sociopathic relationship, one that is famously brought to attention in the book titled Mommy Dearest. If that was how the most important role model in your own life acted, then that is what you too are likely to be replicating in the way that you relate to others and to your own children.

On an energetic level, if you were conceived in the emotion of desperation, then it’s going to imprint your energy field with that same feeling, and you too will feel desperate from the moment you are born. Take stock and ask yourself if you truly do know how to relate on an equal footing to those around you. What would it take to change that if you don’t know? Continue reading

Mary’s Experience of Domestic Violence

Mary’s Experience of Domestic Violence

It was love at first sight when I met my boyfriend James at a football game in high school. He and I met when my friends and I were leaving after the game, and he and I accidentally bumped into each other. It was match made it in heaven when I saw him – he is a handsome guy with jet black hair, deep glaring black eyes and a smile that could light up a room. Plus, his body was to die for. He had a jealous streak and a hot temper but I never paid that any mind. I still wonder sometimes why he wanted me when I was just an average girl with dark hair and brown eyes with an average body. It still puzzles me sometimes. Continue reading

Escaping Family Violence

Family Violence

Violence doesn’t only occur between married or relationship partners, be they heterosexual, gay or lesbian. It also happens between adult siblings, cousins and it occurs from parents to children, even as adults. It doesn’t only come in the form of physical violence either. It can also appear as psychological and emotional violence. Escaping family violence is just as tricky as escaping violence in a spousal relationship.

Like in the movie Harry Potter, many Indigo children are born into families that are essentially “Muggles”, who don’t understand the abilities of Indigo children or their advanced spirituality. They not only don’t understand, they simply can’t understand because they don’t have the capacity to understand the mind of an Indigo child or adult.  It is beyond them.

The following story is based on one told to me by one of our readers about his own experience of violence, suffered at the hands of his parents and his brother, causing problems in his life between him and those he loves, ending up with him into a mental institution. It’s a story that occurs often when someone is gifted. It’s a story not to ignore. All names and identifying features of the story have been changed. Continue reading
