You will learn about how you might be affected by your empathic abilities, as well as how you can identify the ones that already exist within’ yourself, whether you have been aware of it until now or not. You will also be provided with information on how you can tap into your abilities, increase your skill, and nurture yourself throughout the entire experience.

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.

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.

Daniel’s psychodynamic theories

A manipulative person may use another person’s personal desires to take control of them. Once captured, the manipulator will influence in such a way that their captive has limited self-control. Although Daniel’s psychodynamic theories are much more in-depth than this simple analogy. I really enjoy listening this book. Thanks

Wholeheartedly recommended.

The audiobook is an excellent addition to the dark psychology course. The pace is good, the most important psychology concepts are explained in a coherent manner, and the lecturer takes the time (using good examples and ample references to scientific experiments) to get his point across.

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.

Exactly what It Say's

I liked how Daniel guided and explained. Very comfortable understanding and applying theories, thoughts, behaviours... It was the type of material I was looking for. I like how they were explained individually and were not all over the map. And I wanted them to include examples - which he did. I took away a lot of, ah ha's, that makes sense, that explains 'x', know I understand why he/she act that way.... etc. This course is engaging, well organized, guided professionally but not stuffy, and will give you 'take aways' on why people do, act, behave, think (etc), in certain circumstances. This course will allow me to see others differently , putting yourself in their shoes always helps, and understanding things may not be the way they seem. This course most definitely will help me understand or at least 'make me think twice' when it comes to communicating /observing/and evaluating society, family and family. learn about how you might be affected by your empathic abilities, as well as how you can identify the ones that already exist within’ yourself, whether you have been aware of it until now or not. You will also be provided with information on how you can tap into your abilities, increase skill and nurture myself throughout the entire experience. That also teaches simple and effective strategies that do not require any elaborate training or practice, or any significant requirement to remember specific tips and techniques to master the art. Instead, everything is straight-forward, easy to remember, and easy to understand. Really enjoyed revisiting some of the topics were taught in this course and I whole heartedly feel that everyone should take their time and go through this course Daniel Pratt has put together. Really buy this bundle for an efficient empath!

This book has something good for everyone

I wanted to learn more about Dark Psychology Mastery Secrets book. This book has helped me greatly. Was pleased to learn more Body Language Analysis & NLP-Effective. It's extremely informative for the beginner. I would recommend this to anyone. Every person on earth should read this! After reading this book I am actually experiencing. People well-versed in the art of manipulation practice their conversation skills. They complement others generously and make them feel exclusive and special. Make eye contact with people you desire to influence. Give them the feeling that you are truly interested in getting to know about their feelings, emotions, and interests. Demonstrate that you care to take the trouble to know them better (even when you clearly do not). A common empath trait is the need to express yourself creatively. A great outlet for pent-up energy is being creative. Perhaps you paint or draw, design websites, whatever the case may be. The creative process requires quite a bit of energy and brain power. The mere idea of concentrating on your desired project takes your mind off of everything else. The less you are dwelling on thoughts and emotions, the better grounded you will be. Confidence is a huge charisma booster. Charismatic folks and people who wield magnetic personalities are aware of their effect on people during interactions, which make them even more confident. This confidence, in turn, makes them appear even more charismatic. Thus it is a circle of each positive leading up to the other. If you have explicit faith in yourself or your abilities, you are likelier to be successful in influencing or manipulating people into thinking or behaving like you. If you are confident of yourself, you inspire the faith and trust of other people too. People tend to take your words and actions more seriously if they are convinced that you know exactly what you are doing, and that comes only with practiced confidence. Be glib when you are talking to people you want to manipulate, whether you are speaking the truth or fabricating something to accomplish an objective. This book gives all you need to know the extent that what drives people to act so severely a portion of the time. A ton of valuable and accommodating tips. This book is elegantly composed of the key purposes of dull brain science and the strategy of its utilization for control. It looks at thoughts like narcissism which are not so much a technique of mental control. This is a non-academic preface to the most fundamental of mental techniques. as a rule inconceivable read.

Great for dealing with the real world

I would recommend this course to everbody able to understand spoken English. This course can help to understand dynamics hidden behind empathic abilities. Daniel is able to explain in a easy and friendly way concepts that could potentially be, hard to understand. I like the fact that he decided to explain concepts by adding researches and studies made on the specific topic. I like the narrator styles of how he helps understanding and memorizing by repeating lines again and again. I like that he uses to remind us, that psychology is a science. Thank you very much for this course, please keep doing this!

This book touched me more than any book in a very

This Book was full of informative information. It was very easy to read and understand.I appreciate the information about the content. Identify if people are more prone to emotional responses. These folks may turn out to be easier to manipulate emotionally or psychologically. They are typically people who sob while watching movies, feel an instant connection with animals, display strong sympathy for people and a high sense of empathy for other’s problems. To get them to do something specific, you have to tap into their emotions until they feel a sense of pity for you, and give in to your wishes. Some people are more open to a logical or rational approach. They need facts, figures, statistics, and evidence if they have to buy into what you say. If for instance, you realize that someone keeps themselves updated with news reports frequently or requires hard facts and figures before making important choices or decisions, you’ll have to be more calm, persuasive and fact-oriented while trying to influence them. There will be a greater need to speak in a more composed, balanced and rational manner without resorting to an overt display of emotions. You’ll at best have to use subtle, calm and gentle persuasive powers to manipulate them into the way you want them to think and behave. Thanks author for this great book. I highly recommended this book.

Fascinating how our brains are influenced

This audiobook is informative. Dark psychology is not a novel concept so, this book is not about any ground-breaking discoveries. However, it has always been discussed in hushed tones and there is still so much information out there that has gotten lost in barely understandable psychobabble that leaves you more perplexed than informed. This book does an effective job of demystifying dark psychology and equips you with the knowledge that you can use to protect yourself against it. This book provides with all of the details and information we need in order to establish our skills and avoid feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed in a way that is completely healthy. We can learn to nurture ourself and your empathic abilities. For empathic abilities this book is exactly what we have been looking for! Overall it is well writing and easy to understand.

A Conversation Between You and Daniel

Because I have learned a lot about myself through learning about what makes us all respond in similar ways under various circumstances. Also Daniel is very convincing in his delivery of the material which makes him for me a trustworthy score. Great and applicable information thus far with the great length of 16 hrs and 45 mins and trust me no one will get bored. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to have a clearer understanding about why we respond to certain situations the way we do. We are all so similar after all.

It Turns Yellow After Listening

This was my first course made by Daniel Pratt but it definitely will not be my last. I loved it and went through the entire course over 3 days. There is a lot to take in and I'll probably redo it again in a couple of months time, meanwhile, I have purchased several other of other authors course and can't wait to start them as well. Daniel is friendly and engaging, adding humour and warmth to his explanation. The course is well structured, there's no sensationalism and over the top claims, it's rather a condensed version of a beginner pysch course. If you don't like a classroom academic type courses this may be too dry for you, but personally I think it's great to have a qualified psychologist deliver a nice introduction to a fascinating field, providing a nice mix of studies and research, with real examples provided to explore more deeply should you wish. Guess I'll just have to make my own notes! All in all a winner for me, I've not bought several other of Daniel's courses but from now I am waiting for the next upcoming courses of him...

Persuasion techniques are being used on you every

This audiobook helps you understand more than just the basics of human behavior. If you or any of your loved ones have suffered emotionally or is currently living through a nightmare that is directly related to the inherent dangers of dark psychology, this is a audiobook you want to listen. Dark psychology is not a novel concept so, this book is not about any ground-breaking discoveries. I see kids make friends with people who influence them in terrible ways and despite the solid home training they have, they make the wrong choices over and over again. Great content guidebook forever. Thanks!

Finally, NLP in Understandable Language

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to better understand the inner journey of the empath. This particular book in this series focuses on the science of auras, aspects of the personality, and what this science can tell us to help us understand Indigo Children. Indigo Children are special people who have been endowed with gifts that can help humanity heal. They are powerful empaths who possess certain characteristics. However, before they can realize their potential, they have to learn to recognize and appreciate their gift for what it is. Many characteristics of Indigo Children are actually embedded within the aspect of the personality that is referred to as the “ego.” As long as Indigo Children remain embedded within the ego, their gift can actually become destructive. However, when the Indigo Child is able to use the gift as part of the journey to help heal humanity, it becomes a force for good. By the time you finish this book, you will understand the concept of Indigo Children and what they need to do in order to mature as empaths. If you consider yourself an Indigo Child, you will be able to develop a plan for your own growth and development as an empath. If you are not an Indigo Child, you will be able to better understand people in your life who may be Indigo Children and help them reach their full potential as empaths.

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 .
