Psychological Manipulation Techniques are real and are powerful. Narcissist use them because they work. Victims change so much from the person they were before the Narcissist targeted them.
QUOTE: “He pushed her down a flight of stairs. He held a loaded gun to her head. Leslie Morgan Steiner would not leave that abusive relationship because:
“No one in my life had ever made me feel so safe, loved, beautiful and validated as he did during the early months of our relationship”. There is a reason why they Love Bomb you with their Fake Persona. Psychological Manipulation Techniques work.“
This Quote pic was inspired by an article which Leslie Morgan Steiner had written in The Washington Post. We had featured that article in a prior post on this site. Click on this link to visit The Washington Post site to read the article which was titled “He held a gun to my head. I loved him.“.

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.
A concise explanation of the power of using Mirroring and Matching. Narcissists are well versed in Mirroring and Matching. They use it all the time when Targeting someone.
Mirroring and Matching works, because the majority of people are consciously unaware of it. When you actively look for this major Red Flag and spot it’s use, you make it powerless.
It could be a danger signal, if you catch someone new persistently using Mirroring and Matching while interacting with you. In such a case, look for other Red Flags such as Love Bombing.
If you consistently spot multiple Red Flags, when with a particular person, then ask yourself why would they be using powerful Psychological Manipulation Techniques against you?
Learn about the Red Flags of Narcissists and then watch for them. Many websites discuss them. Many YouTube videos discuss them. Google is your friend, just do some Google searches…

What wouldn’t anyone give to meet their “Soul Mate“? Someone who is attentive and oh so charming. The constant texting and or phone calls to tell you that they “Love You”. They say the things which you so much want to hear. They are sweeping you off your feet.
If your new Love Interest is a Narcissist, they eventually will be sweeping you under the rug. They are oh so charming, until you find out why they were so charming. Wake up, they want something.
Your newly found “Soul Mate” Narcissist is Love Bombing you. That is a Psychological Manipulation Technique used to get you to drop your instinctive guard when meeting new people. They want to totally shutdown your natural fight or flight response. Once that response is shutdown, then they can take total control of you, yes you. Do you still think that you have met your “Soul Mate”?
The constant communications and contact with your newly found “Soul Mate”, is also helping to isolate you from other people. They know what they are doing, as they have had lots of prior practice. You on the other hand are naive and trusting. Been there, done that.
Like other videos by Beverly Banov Brown, I’m glad that I can share them here via YouTube. Her videos are to the point and I hope that everyone finds them to be informative.
Love Bombing is a major Red Flag to watch for. Narcissist hide their Love Bombing in plain sight. They use Love Bombing because it works. The same reason why they also use Mirroring while they are Love Bombing you. Narcissists are very well versed in both of these Psychological Manipulation Techniques.
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…
To spot a Narcissist, watch out for Red Flags.
Mirroring is Red Flag #5, on Narcissist Support YouTube channel‘s list. I would tend to list it as Red Flag #1, because Narcissist are always Mirroring those that they interact with.
Mirroring is a Major Psychological Manipulation Technique and is consistently used by Narcissist, because Mirroring is so effective,
Narcissists have trained themselves to automatically start using it, so as to gain an advantage over those whom they are interacting with.
Mirroring is a Major Red Flag. Watch for it. When you spot that Mirroring is being used, you “Neutralize” a Major Psychological Manipulation Technique used by Narcissists.
An informative and helpful video by Monika Hoyt titled: “Don’t fall in love with a Narcissist. Learn the signs and “RUN” the other way.“
Never challenge the Narcissist. They will commonly feel rejected, humiliated and threatened when they perceive even the slightest bit of criticism. If you trigger such feelings in a Narcissist, expect a “major Nuclear attack” directed at you. Trust what your gut (Inner Voice) is telling you about the Narcissist and get the hell away from them.
Narcissistic Emotional Abuse can be very damaging, even when there was no “Physical Abuse” involved.
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?
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.
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…
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.
The more that you learn about Mirroring, the easier it will be for you to catch this Red Flag, when someone tries to Mirror you.
… 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.
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…

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse used by narcissists in order to instill in their victim’s an extreme sense of anxiety and confusion, to the point where they no longer trust their own memory, perception or judgment.
The techniques used in “Gaslighting” by the narcissist are similar to those used in brainwashing, interrogation, and torture that have been used in psychological warfare by intelligence operative, law enforcement and other forces for decades. The intention is to, in a systematic way, target the victim’s mental equilibrium, self confidence, and self esteem so that they are no longer able to function in an independent way, giving the narcissist full control over the victim.
This Gaslighting workshop is by Christine Louis de Canonville, who is an expert in this field.
