Welcome to, but still She Thrivesa with Christy. Okay, today’s episode is going to be pretty short, but it’s gonna be important. It is important, and it’s something I just want to share with you guys because it might seem simple, but it’s something that I didn’t really get till it just kind of clicked one day of like, this makes sense. So stay tuned to hear the reason that your nervous system is always in overdrive. If you’ve been through narcissistic abuse,

Queens, welcome to, but still she thrives. Do you wanna stop getting caught up in that wicked web of a creepy crawling narcissist? And you find yourself up late at night replaying the abuse you put up with and wondering how you can heal now? Do you wake up hoping for healthy relationships and peace only to feel totally exhausted? And mind F girl, I see you. I’m Christy. I too had to disconnect from toxic people in my life, and I wished I could undo the damage. I felt ashamed, lonely, and kind of lost. But I’m a stubborn Italian and I refuse to give up. I found ways to recalibrate my mind and body more quickly than I thought and can now share them with you. In this podcast, you will find coping tools, healing methods, and confidence boosters so you can trust yourself and find peace and freedom. So shields up ladies, let’s go protect our peace.
Speaker 1: (01:32)
Okay? So like I said, I’ve always felt like even after I have cut the narcissist out of my life, I still felt tense. I still felt stressed out, overwhelmed. Like just that my nervous system was so, so out of balance. And I’m like, well, I’m out of the situation. Was there a lot of peace that came from that? Yes, but it felt like this underlying thing and I was like, maybe I was just like born with anxiety, right? Like all these things came through my head. And then as I started to learn more about narcissism myself and go further in my journey, I realized, okay, so even though your body knows when you’ve left a certain situation, you’re out of an abusive situation, toxic situation, whatever you wanna call it, you know you have peace, you can feel a difference. But if you are like me and all of my clients, even after you are out of the situation, you can still feel on edge.
Speaker 1: (02:26)
You still have this underlying stress, you question yourself. There’s all sorts of things that when your body is not in alignment and is dysregulated, when your nervous system has been blown like that, it can totally shift things around in many ways. The thing is, when you’re outta the situation, your body has an imprint. Your mind has an imprint, and it doesn’t necessarily know that you are safe. It might have an idea you’re out of this situation on a surface level, but there is this deep imprint of not feeling safe, even though there’s knowledge of it, it’s almost like it’s stuck in that fear as well of it could come back, right? And, and we have those thoughts even on a more surface level where, oh, I might not trust again or this might happen again, right? Because our bodies are stuck there. So we are stuck in the trauma of our relationship, whether that be romantic, whether it be family, relationships, friendships, whatever it is, our mind, body, and spirit can all be still stuck there in many ways.
Speaker 1: (03:37)
When I understood that, like I really understood, I am stuck back there, even though I’m here, it helped me get clarity and kind of more motivation to like, okay, I need to dig into all of these three areas of my life, right? The body, I need to do some work on my body. I started doing the yoga, the meditation, right? The mind, we do therapy, talk therapy, affirmations, all, there’s all sorts of therapies we can get into, right? And then the mind, the body and the spirit, right? So that for me, that that’s some God stuff. Whatever sort of spiritual work. If you’re a universe person, a god person, I don’t, I don’t care who it is, I don’t care who your higher power is, it helps to have one. If you don’t have one, dismiss this part, it’s fine. Um, most important is that whatever parts of your body have been affected, you need to help each and every one of those.
Speaker 1: (04:37)
Are they related and entangled to a degree? So they affect each other? Yes. But I’ve noticed I really had to do specific work in each quote section of myself. If you have been following me, you know, I have a lot of episodes on how to help the healing process or start, sorry, start the healing process, right? How to start with the yin yoga with the meditation. And I give you ideas, but I can’t say everything. I try to get give you guys as much information as I can, but if you truly want to get the best results and you want the accountability that helps with that, for me, that’s what I love. I have a coach now. I had a therapist before. Um, I love to have accountability. It just, it helps me a lot. Most people do better with accountability. So if you’re that person, this may be the time.
Speaker 1: (05:30)
Like if you are feeling dysregulated, if you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, burnt out, tired, questioning yourself, your confidence is. You’re wondering if you’ll ever be able to feel happy again. Or maybe you never really have felt happy, but you see other people and you want that peace is the goal for us, right? Like, that is my word. And I, I feel like that goes for all of my clients at some point have said, I want peace. And that is what I help you get. I help you gain the tools, keep the accountability, and really do the work in a fun way. This doesn’t have to be dark and hard and scary. Are there gonna be moments? It’s like, oh, okay. Like, yes, you have to sacrifice a little time, but if you, if you are telling me you wanna prioritize your piece, then you have to prioritize it.
Speaker 1: (06:22)
That means you have to spend some time on it, right? You can’t just take a magic pill. Maybe you can take a, um, pill that masks it, it a little, but then you’re also maybe numbing other parts of yourself. I’m not saying I’m anti-medication, I’m just saying doing this work with all of my clients has been epic and I’ve had multiple clients get off medication after working with me. I’m not saying that’s a promise, I’m just saying I, I just see the results. And when you are working with me, we are going to go into all three areas of your life that are dysregulated. Odds are it’s all three, and we’re going to make it a fun process of healing. So if you’re interested, I want you to sign up for my journey to peace Call. We go in, we dive deep, I give a lot.
Speaker 1: (07:13)
I love you guys. I want you to feel better and find peace and freedom. That’s my jam. And I want you to be able to feel like I feel now. It’s amazing on the side, and I know how it feels to be on the other side. And that’s why I do this, because I want you to grab my hand and say, yes, I am ready. So are you ready to prioritize your piece? Are you just sick of this? If you are, go into my podcast notes, click on that link.

Speaker 1: (08:18)
There’s so many things that you are probably missing in your life, and life is short. And I, it kills me to watch people put off this healing, put off this journey ’cause it’s so worth it. And I make it fun. It’s fun. Ask any of my clients. We have fun. Um, so I do, I care about you guys. I want you to heal if you are ready. I want people who are ready, not like half-assed. I want the people that are like, I’m ready to do this. I wanna heal. And I know that I can get peace. I just, I just need help knowing how to get there. And maybe the accountability as well is hard for you. So that’s what I’m here for. I’m so excited. I want to help you on your journey.
