Empathy: The Key To Psychic Awareness

After years of research and direct experience with narcissistic abuse, plus communication with former victims, it is now clear that many victims often go on to develop psychic abilities.

Although recovery from narcissistic abuse takes many years, former victims usually go on to develop significantly higher levels of empathy than they previously had, before going through their experiences with a narcissist. After such a horrendous long-term experience, of course, it makes sense that they would feel free, liberated and would appreciate the world more.

For many of them, coming out of the other side of long-term narcissistic abuse often leads them into becoming more spiritual people and they become more aware, not just of the physical world but also of the metaphysical world - almost like an upgrade of their psyche which kicks into action, this upgrade of their psyche not only helping their wellbeing but also helping them to become more aware of potential threats - a defence mechanism based on psychic awareness.

Whilst it's true that some people were victimized by narcissists because they were already empaths, many former victims go on to become full-blown empaths after their experience and develop high levels of intuition, not only to the point that they can feel the emotions of people close to them but also to the point whereby they can sometimes pick up on those people's thoughts telepathically also.

Furthermore, with high levels of empathy comes higher vibration and many former victims also find themselves being able to tune into and perceive the spirit world. They may develop abilities such as telepathy and precognition but perhaps most notably, psychometry - to perceive energy from an inanimate object. That is, they may go on to feel empathy for their car, or their laptop, or their musical instrument.

Creative Intelligence Linked To Narcissism

According to a new study carried out by psychologists at De La Salle University in Manila, there is a link between creative intelligence and narcissistic/sociopathic tendencies.

Of course, it has always been purported that geniuses are at least a little bit crazy.

Three studies were carried out. For the first study, over 500 participants were asked to fill in a questionnaire designed to pick up on narcissistic and sociopathic traits. For the second study, 250 college students were monitored for indications of being bold, disinhibited and mean.

For the third study, levels of excitement were monitored by the amount of electrical activity in the participant's skin whilst the participants were carrying out activities such as gambling exercises.

The results were published in peer reviewed journal, Personality and Individual Differences, and show how sociopathic traits may be integral to some creative personalities.

The three studies were led by Adrianne John Galang and showed that people with higher levels of creative genius were more likely to display antisocial traits including higher levels of risk-taking behaviour and dishonesty.

Theodore Millon's 5 Types Of Narcissist

Theodore Millon was a psychologist/psychiatrist who proposed five different main types of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), or Malignant Narcissism/Self-Love.

Millon also developed the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI) which is currently widely used in diagnostic testing. Whereas James F Masterson had only proposed two main types of narcissism, exhibitionist (overt) and closet (covert), Millon defined the following four categories for his subtypes.


Unprincipled:

Used to describe narcissists with antisocial (i.e. sociopathic) features. Unprincipled narcissists are usually unscrupulous, deceptive and exploitative. Also includes charlatans and frauds.

Amorous:

Basically a narcissist with histrionic features (i.e. a drama queen). Amorous narcissists may appear charming and charismatic on the outside but they are also exhibitionists and have erotic tendencies.

Compensatory:

Compensatory narcissists tend to have passive-aggressive features and usually a negative attitude and outlook on life. They also have avoidant features presumably due to their negative way of thinking.

Elitist:

Elitist narcissists have a tendency to view themselves as better than anyone else, whether in status, position or intellect. Elitist narcissism fits in with Wilhelm Reich's description of a phallic narcissist.

The fifth subtype:

Unusually, Millon's fifth category included either all or none of the above. It could therefore be assumed that Millon had come up with six categories in total but didn't want to overly confuse the issue.
