For some, being an empath can feel like a burden. Many report that you may feel as though you are “carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders” quite literally. Fortunately, this book provides you with all of the details and information you need in order to establish your skills and avoid feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed in a way that is completely healthy. You will learn to nurture yourself and your empathic abilities in a way that no one has likely ever taught you.

Strips the mind of ignorance

The art of manipulation is one that is often highly underestimated and misunderstood. Many people see the word manipulation and believe that someone is going to be cruel, mean, and potentially emotionally abusive. There are many negative traits associated with manipulation. Unfortunately, this prevents people from realizing how powerful this psychological art form is, and the many valuable usages it can have in life. Furthermore, many people fail to understand that virtually every one of us already uses manipulation in one method or another in our regular lives. Although we may not recognize it as manipulation, we all have some degree of practice with this art. Learning to manipulate effectively does not mean that you are out to create some form of abusive patterns between yourself and others. Rather, it simply means that you know what you want and you have a refined way of getting it. At the end of the day, if someone does not want to give in, they won’t. Manipulation is not about pressuring someone into doing something that they seriously do not want to do. This book offers step-by-step guide on how to actually apply the techniques in real life situations. The techniques explained will help me to avoid being manipulated in the future.

Brain science for the regular guy!!

This book is simply astonishing. I like the examples! It is an extraordinary quality. Many thanks to the author for giving us such a beautiful book. I will suggested to all for read this book.

Freud was wrong about a lot of things. A lot of his ideas have no scientific basis and are complete nonsense. But he was also right about a lot of things, and in some areas where he may not have been spot on, he did lay the foundation for serious future research. One of those areas is his ideas regarding what he called the id, the ego, and the superego. This chapter will explore those three aspects of human personality, not necessarily from the Freudian perspective but from a perspective of modern psychology. It will also discuss why those three aspects of human personality are essential in understanding the life and journey of an empath.

Learning to see auras is an intensely spiritual journey that requires a high level of self-awareness and emotional maturity. The first thing that you must learn to do is recognize and distinguish different types of energy. Positive energy is uplifting and builds people up. Negative energy is destructive and can make people feel bad. These energies are transferred through things like our words and actions. For example, consider the last time someone said or did something mean and nasty to you. Did it change how you feel and in any way affect the next person that you interacted with? That’s because the negative energy affected you in real and felt ways. When was the last time someone was kind to you? Did it induce in you the motivation to show kindness to other people? That was the effect of positive energy. Pay attention to the energies that other people emit. The easiest way to begin to do this is to take note of how you feel when you are around another person. Does that person make you feel good or bad? The emotions that you experience are usually indicative of that person’s aura.

Constructive manipulation can be used for transforming negative energy into a positive experience through physical, psychological and spiritual attributes of your personality. Imagine trying to manipulate a drug addict to give up drugs or a binge eater to start eating in a healthier fashion. Now that’s not so bad, is it? You are resorting to positive or constructive manipulation to get someone to do what is good for them.

Positive or constructive manipulation has been occurring since ages. What do you think Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi were doing when they drew people like magnets? They restored to spreading a highly positive energy through their own fine example and actions to lead others on the same path of equality, justice, humanity, and brotherhood.

There are several times in your life when you’ve felt compelled to reach out to someone that needs your assistance. Yet, for several reasons, he or she has turned down you straight-laced attempts for help. Is it bad then if you manipulate them to comply for their own good? Your motives can be hardly ascribed as selfish or self-fulfilling in such a scenario. The tactics you use can also be barely labeled as devious, wicked or crafty.

This book has been too useful for me getting Dark Psychology. This was ideal for me and you should take a gander at one moreover. you should discover this book helpful Guide To Learn The Realms of Manipulation. Particularly the writer clarified this book quite well.

Such a great book, what a gem.

For instance if you think there’s no one who can keep your date or partner happier than you, you try and align their desires with yours. You know you will keep them happy when they get married to you and vice-versa. There is a positive manipulation and persuasion, where he or she does not get the feeling that they are being tricked. You are in fact doing what is good for both him or her and you. As a person in love, you are trying to lead them into a powerful bond that you truly believe in. Is manipulation wrong here? Well, maybe not! Unlike persuasion, manipulation occurs at a deeper and subconscious level. It is carried out by attempting to change to the fundamental beliefs and experiences of people to get them to do what we want. This can be done by using a variety of raw and sophisticated methods ranging from hypnotism to seduction or top-notch verbal skills. It is sometimes performed by distorting someone’s idea of reality to get them to think and do what we want them to. People will then start behaving and thinking about reality precisely as the manipulator wants them to.

Methods of dark persuasion!!!

An excellent guide for me. I'm satisfied with this Dark psychological book. The Author well writes it. Recommended! Dark psychological science is entirely a person's development and shared by no different living creature. Violence may exist in different living organisms. Whether you realize it or no, you are being constantly manipulated in your daily lives. The tool of manipulation is used almost by every marketer or business that is getting you to buy their stuff and live in a specific way as suitable for their profits. “Buying xyz brand of sports shoes makes you look like a professional and cool athlete” or “vote for abc political party if you really want to witness change and people’s welfare.” It is in your face, all-pervasive and everywhere – there’s just no escaping manipulation in your personal, social and professional life. An important aspect of hypnosis and why it is popularly used by manipulators around the world is that reduces an individual’s ability to think rationally. They become receptive to any information that is fed to them without applying much thought, irrespective of whether the idea is logical or not. This simply means that people in a trance state are susceptible to uncritically or unquestioning accept the notions/ideas that are fed to them. Their powers of logical analysis, rational decision making and objective judgments are completely eliminated. This is precisely the level at which cult leaders lead their followers into doing exactly what they want in an absolutely unquestioning manner. When powers of judgment and decision making are reduced, people blindly follow what they’ve been led to believe. Mind control hypnotism or hypnosis equips you with the arsenal to manipulate others. I chose this perfect guidebook for all. Thanks for the Creator.

Understand yourself, then change yourself...

One of the biggest hurdles when it comes to manipulating people is to master not just your emotions but also expressions, voice, and body language to convince people of your contrived or created feelings.

Have you tried practicing appearing distressed or disillusioned when you want to have your way? What about faking various emotions and expressions? Taking a theatre, drama or acting class is a great way to hone your manipulation powers.

Ensure that you do not let people know you’ve signed up for a theatre class lest they stop believing in the genuinely of your rather practiced emotions and expressions.

This book is important

Think about this for a minute. There are several times in your life when you’ve felt compelled to reach out to someone that needs your assistance. Yet, for several reasons, he or she has turned down you straight-laced attempts for help. Is it bad then if you manipulate them to comply for their own good? Your motives can be hardly ascribed as selfish or self-fulfilling in such a scenario. The tactics you use can also be barely labeled as devious, wicked or crafty. We are all familiar with the term: “desperate times call for desperate measures.” Sometimes approaching people to convince them about what is good for them in a straightforward manner falls flat. In such a scenario, when you’ve tried everything in the book to persuade them positively, the only communication tactics you may have to resort to may be the ones that are viewed as downright crafty or evil. The intent is precisely what distinguishes negative manipulation from constructive manipulation. In the latter, your intent isn’t to twist the other person to suit your will. It is only a means to get past their stubborn, obstinate and illogical defense mechanisms.

A great guide for all levels

This book will give the reader the upper hand so they can be on the lookout for these negative people.Gives exactly how these people operate so you know what to expect and will see it coming a mile away.It is average size.The context is easy to read and understand.Manipulation is the conscious act of causing someone to do a certain thing or act in a certain way. Manipulation is clever, skillful, and sometimes unscrupulous. Manipulation is not always a bad thing. Have you ever felt really bummed out because a friend of yours was upset about something? Should you really feel downright depressed about something that doesn’t really affect you? While it is nice and bonding to feel empathy for a friend, once you’re alone, it really should not be affecting your mood. You could have had the best day on your own, only to have those good feelings squashed by an event that didn’t actually happen to you.

Great guide for creating the person you want to be

Playing the victim card is time-tested manipulation strategy. Often a group of people to gain political or social or some other benefit will portray themselves as a disadvantaged group to attract the support of masses. They will manipulate popular opinion in their favor by demonstrating the unfairness they’ve been subjected to or the disadvantages they faced on account of belonging to a particular group, class, community, tribe, race or religion.

Use this technique carefully and cleverly to get it right, without overdoing it. Basically, you are telling others that you’re a wonderful and giving person or group or community and that the entire universe is against you.
Make people feel that you’re always being nice and giving to others, and no one seems to return the same sentiments.
Rather than arguing, fighting or squabbling with people to have your way, simply act calm and like you’ve accepted the situation.

Terrible content and even worse narration

Very disappointed with this book both in terms of its content and narration. The theme could potentially be explored in a much more interesting way but instead is done in a repetitive and boring manner.
Im annoyed I spent the money and wasted time in listening to it - wish I could give no stars! Totally avoid!

Should be mandatory reading for all homo sapiens.

Several times more subtle or gentle types of manipulation can be utilized for motivating or inspiring people to do things that are more beneficial or safer for them. These approaches can be used to transform a person’s self-image. If you are manipulating someone to quit smoking or give up junk food, that isn’t such an evil thing, is it?

Absolutely awful

Constantly contradicting himself, the same book practically over and over again. Gives me anxiety just listening to these awful abusive tactics, though he says it’s not abusive, so that makes it alright then. Don’t waste your credits!!

Well Done@

I believe this book can help you point of fact. A phenomenal effective book. Deception is one of the most commonly practiced covert hypnosis techniques to lead the subject into doing what you want without them knowing about your real intentions. For instance, you may want a close friend to give up addiction and resort to plain deception to lead them away from their addiction triggers or suggest something false without making them catch your true intentions of making them give up alcohol or drugs.

Loving approach People almost always have a compel

People almost always have a compelling urge to return other’s favors. “Oh! She bought me a really expensive gift. I must do something for her too.” Do not these words seem all too familiar? If you really wish to get someone to do something for you in future, start by making them obliged to you. Keep reinforcing verbally the things that have been doing for them as a favor. For example, say something like “Oh! You’d do the same for me, or you’d help me too, wouldn’t you?” instead of saying, “not a problem at all or do not mention it please.” You are simply trying to tell them that you expect them to help out or do something you want them to in future.

Poorly written and full of fluff

This book was a waste of money. It seems to be written by someone with a poor command of the English language. Plenty of fluff about what the book will tell you and not much content. I couldn’t get past the writing and stilted delivery by the narrator.

Don’t wast your time. I had to return this book. I was looking for psychological research and data .
