Codependence – Patterns and Characteristics

CoDA.org holds meetings similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. Those with Codependent tendencies can meet, share and talk.

Codependence stems from not receiving the Love, Care, Attention and Confirmation and Praise which “you deserved” when you were a child. The child’s sense of self is not allowed to develop. Codependence, is in my opinion, a survival mechanism developed by the child and carried over into adulthood.

There are people, such a Narcissists , who will search for and pick up on someone’s Codependent tendencies. Narcissists are well versed in Psychological Manipulation Techniques to reel in their Codependent targets. Codependents are easily duped by the Narcissist’s Love Bombing. The Narcissist’s Love Bombing provides the Codependent Target, that which the Target had never received from their parents, when they were a child. Unfortunately the Love Bombing was never something real. It was just another Psychological Manipulation and Control Technique used by disordered individuals such as Narcissists.

A Licensed Therapist can help one to figure out the Triggers of Codependent Tendencies. Realizing the Self Doubt and Self Sabotage and negative Self Talk is the first step towards healing. Healing opens the door to finding a Healthy relationship and could also help to limit you being targeted by Disordered Individuals such as Narcissists.

The Codependents anonymous meetings held, by CoDA.org, in your local area could be helpful tool on your road to recovery. Speak to your Therapist about CoDA.org. Also find out if your licensed Therapist holds Group Therapy sessions. You are not alone. Sadly many have had parents who were clueless about proper parenting and helping their children grow and develop their Self Worth and Self Esteem. It is my opinion that Codependence is created by abysmal parenting.

Narcissist Playbook. Eight of their Psychological Manipulation Techniques Of Mind Control

This is a “Must Read” article. It provides details of the Narcissists’s Playbook.

Bree Bonchay lists and details the key steps and in the order that Narcissists will use those Major Psychological Manipulations Techniques.

Covert Brainwashing is very real. Just ask the women who could not leave extremely physically abusive relationships. Most were still in Love with the Fantasy Figure, portrayed to them during the Love Bombing phase.

Once an Elite Hacker gets inside any major Corporate or Bank Computer Network, “they own it“. Once a Narcissist gets inside your head, “they own you“! Knowledge is Power and could act as your personal Firewall and Intrusion Detection System against Narcissists.

Have you ever wondered how narcissists and sociopaths (narcopaths) are so highly skilled at control and manipulation tactics without ever having stepped foot in a psychology classroom? Were you eve…

Love Bombing insights from the Trenches

Must view video filled with insights about Love Bombing and other Red Flags.

Her new Lover was talking about Marriage very shortly after their first meeting. This woman became so Psychologically Manipulated by the Love Bombing, that she bought her Wedding Dress within the first 2 weeks of meeting that new Lover. Classic Love Bombing and Major Red Flag. Love Bombing worked faster than Brain Washing / Mind Control techniques. The new Lover was in the mean time also seeing another woman.

The person Love Bombing you, is also Mirroring you. That establishes a very deep rapport and trust in the mind of the victim being Psychologically Manipulated. That deep Rapport and Trust is something which keeps physical Abuse Victim in Abusive Relationship.

The Victim dismisses being kicked down a fight of stairs and reminds herself of the beginning of the relationship when the Love Bombing and Mirroring were going on at full speed. She tells herself that he was so sweet and so charming and amazing and so lovable. The fact that he now punches her in the head multiple times and gives her Black Eyes on a regular basis, does not dislodge the Mind Control established during the Love Bombing phase. The abuse is dismissed because she is still “in Love” with the fake Persona she met during the Love Bombing phase.

Love Bombing is not about Love. Love Bombing is strictly about establishing Control over the Victim.

One thing to note is how this woman kept attracting Disordered Individuals. Christine De Canonville noted in a seminar that once you have been with a Disordered Individual, you have been primed and other Disordered Individuals will spot you in a crowd and target you.

Potential victims are advised to watch carefully for Mirroring. Narcissists are very well adapt at Mirroring. Why? Because it works, allowing the Narcissist to quickly establish Rapport with their potential target.

When you know what to look for, you will spot it. I have watched Narcissists use Mirroring time and time again against potential targets, who had no clue that they were being manipulated.

Mirroring is very powerful, but can easily be spotted if you know what to look for…

Mirroring is a major Psychological Manipulation Technique used by Narcissists, to quickly establish Rapport and gain your Trust.

Narcissists are not One Trick Ponies. They have many tricks up their sleeve.

In this video Derren Brown shows the use of Conversational Hypnosis to pay for goods with “blank pieces of paper”. Your Narcissist could use the same techniques to reframe your mind so you will continue to “Trust” them, no matter how much they have betrayed or hurt you.

Derren Brown – Mirroring Experiment

Mirroring can open a gateway,
into another person’s mind.

This Derren Brown experiment proves that Mirroring can be used to allow one person to access the mind of another.

Narcissists Mirror people on purpose, for the purpose of easily gaining their Trust and building quick Rapport.

This Derren Brown experiment shows the power of Mirroring.

If someone Mirrors you on purpose, they are using a very powerful Psychological Manipulation Technique against you.

Is that the type of person you want in your life?

Mirroring, Leading and Pacing


Derren Brown video demonstrating

the power of Mirroring, Leading and Pacing.

Once you have Mirrored and Led and then Paced someone, the next step is to anchor Triggers into their mind. One easier way is if you first put then into a sleep like trance.

The Target has no clue what has transpired. When the Trigger anchored in the Target’s Mind is pulled, the Target will do what ever you have programmed them to do.

Video is courtesy of the Derren Brown YouTube channel

Mirroring is one Gateway into your Mind.

In this case, the little girl in Red, holding balloons was the Trigger. The Target saw the little girl in Red, holding balloons. The Trigger was pulled. The Target then proceeds to enter the nearest electronics store and walk out with a stolen Television, as he had been programmed to do.

When stopped, the Target had NO recall of being mirrored and programmed. The perfect Manchurian Candidate (referencing back to an old movie about Mind Control)

The Derren Brown video shows just how quickly and easily one can perform Mind Programming and achieve Mind Control. “It worked”, because Mirroring “opened the gateway” into the Target’s Mind. Narcissists can become experts at Mirroring. They hone their Mirroring skills, each and every day. Watch for it !

Narcissists are Puppet Masters.
Would you like to become their Puppet?

Run Rabbit Run…

Mirroring and Narcissists.

I happened to find an interesting post regarding Mirroring as used by Narcissists.

I’m sharing the link and some quotes from that post, because “most” people have never even heard of this very powerful Psychological Manipulation Technique.

I have referred to Mirroring in prior posts, as something done on purpose by a Narcissist. They will sit like you are sitting. They smile, when you smile. They will cross their legs, when you cross your legs. They will hold their arms and hands, in the same manner as you do. Mirroring allows the Narcissist to get inside the head of the Target and establish Fake Rapport. Once Rapport is established the Target will bring down their defences. Narcissists know this and are well versed in this tactic.

Cynthia Bailey-Rug also brings up another aspect to Mirroring, which Narcissists do use.

Mirroring is when a person pretends to share similar interests to you, or to feel & respond to things as you do, when the truth is they don’t share your interests, feelings or responses.

Mirroring interests is something that I had never touch on. Yes, yet another thing to watch for.

She also touched on something really interesting that I have only seen one time.

 Some even try to mimic personality traits, like empathy.  Since they have no empathy of their own, they watch how you display empathy, & then try to act like you in order to make you or others think they have empathy.

Most Narcissists could not be bothered faking Empathy for someone.

Narcissists use mirroring in order to lure new victims into a relationship with them or to patch ones they have damaged.  The bonding that mirroring can form is a powerful tool, & narcissists know this all too well.

Cynthia is right on the mark with that remark. Mirroring is very powerful. I believe that Mirroring was first developed for Special Forces and Black Ops, for use during Interrogations and Conversions. Law Enforcement saw it’s value in Hostage Negotiations. 

Since Narcissists are versed in Mirroring, you can bet that they know and will use other Psychological Manipulation Techniques.

It could be in your best interest, to steer well clear of them.

Mirroring, a Psychological Manipulation Technique used by Narcissists

It’s interesting watching Narcissists mirror people, whom they are interacting with.

What is mirroring?

Video is courtesy of the BNET Video YouTube channel.

Mirroring is taking place when one person (the Narcissist) consciously (on purpose and with a purpose) imitates how the other person is sitting, how they are holding their head, where they are placing their hands, if they cross their legs, their gestures and speech pattern (sometimes even to the point of using fake accents). If the narcissist is well versed in Mirroring, they can mirror the breathing pattern of the person that they are interacting with (targeting really).

Video is courtesy of the Narcissist Free YouTUbe channel.

Mirroring is a way to establish rapport and trust. It is a fake way, but the victim/target does not know this. The target sees themselves as they are being mirrored by the Narcissist. Mirroring is an extremely powerful Psychological Manipulation Technique. That is why it is used extensively by Law Enforcement and the Military, for example during “Hostage Negotiations“. Special Forces, Black Ops and Spies know that Mirroring is an extremely powerful Psychological Manipulation Technique and is used for example during interrogations and conversions..

If you catch someone Mirroring, you should ask yourself why would someone use such a powerful Psychological Manipulation Technique against you, while interacting with you?

Narcissists know how to use psychological manipulation techniques to trigger empathy in others (their victim/targets). Thus making it easier and faster for the Narcissist to establish rapport and trust with the target/victim.

Some in the Medical Professions also use Mirroring with patients. Psychiatrists for example.

If you watch for Mirroring, then you can quickly pick up on it.

If you catch someone Mirroring you, keep your guard up and consider staying the hell away from a person who would use such a powerful Psychological Manipulation Technique against you.

A Cornered Animal to A Beast

… Reblogged from a well crafted WordPress blog which I had stumbled upon. That blog is titled: “Chronicles of Imperfectly Perfect“.

This excellent post is a great example of what happens when one ends up in any kind of a relationship with a Narcissist. Sarah’s Mentor clearly suffered from a Narcissist Disorder. Sarah is the Heroine in that post

Never, ever point out that a Narcissist is wrong, especially when there are other people around. Never, ever say “No” to a Narcissist. Depending on the depth of the Narcissist’s psychopathic dysfunction, your life could be endangered by uttering that two letter word..

Sarah had to agree that a Tomato was a vegetable or else the Narcissist would proceed to destroy her. It matters not if their way is incorrect, it has to be the Narcissist’s way or else. Sadly, no one else matters to a Narcissist.

This post was written by a master wordsmith. It flows and draws the reader into the story. 

Do yourselves a favor and check out her blog…

Chronicles of Imperfectly Perfect

One day I found myself ceaselessly and uncontrollably crying as I envisioned killing myself over and over again to force myself to believe as I repeated, “you are dead… BELIEVE IT, YOU ARE DEAD. YOU DON’T HAVE A CHOICE.” But my soul wouldn’t buy it, my mind wouldn’t accept it and even though my heart was broken but it was undefeated. I was crying because I was made to feel like, I have no choice, no say in the matter, no rights because I am a woman. I was shattered because I had to live and function according to the commands of those who decided that I was their possession and they my master. I belong to a culture where the horrors of patriarchy, dictatorship of seniors and handing over ones self-worth and dignity are celebrated as love, admiration and respect. While, taking ownership of one’s own life and asking…
