Many women who experience the trauma of abuse find themselves having difficulty processing the that trauma and pain. Meditation can help provide clarity and offer space for that processing to happen safely.

Victims of narcissistic abuse can suffer indescribable trauma: from physical symptoms like insomnia, weight loss, and chronic pain to emotional symptoms like mood swings, depression, and even suicidal ideation. Narcissistic abuse leaves painful scars.

How Does Meditation Help Victims of Narcissistic Abuse?

Because of the notoriously insidious psychological, emotional, sexual, and physically abusive tactics that narcissistic abusers use against victims, pain and trauma can feel debilitating.

As victims learn to practice meditation, they may find that they are able to more clearly and easily process traumatic memories and then let them go.

Meditation Aids Victims of Narcissistic Abuse In Healing

Tragically, many victims of narcissistic abuse feel trapped in trauma and struggle to believe that there will ever be a time when they will feel peace, self-worth, and safety again.

Meditation is a powerful tool in the arsenal of a victim of narcissistic abuse. It can help enable victims to set and maintain effective boundaries to protect themselves from abuse.

Victims may experience significant triggers even years after the abusive relationship has ended.

Wherever you are in your healing journey, meditation can help you when you feel triggered.
