This is a psychic talent that is rarely discussed out in the open, but my goal is to change that since I want to write a whole book on psychic attack. Plain old, ordinary manipulation is about feelings. A manipulator extracts the types of feelings they want. Empaths who have this ability are doing it because they feel people’s emotions. When somebody employs brainwashing or manipulation, they say something like, “I need you to feel a certain way or I need you to think a certain way.” Somebody with a weak will is easy to manipulate. Some people with this ability seek to destroy others for personal gain.
If a person acts like they are being controlled since they are addicted to their energy, the person who is manipulated feels terrible inside. They lose their free will. Cult leaders have such talents they use out in the open. Many people want to bring other people down by manipulating them. This ability runs in my family. To manipulate means that a person is trying to control another through their mind power. Manipulative people think that their needs are more important than another person’s.
These people are weak in truth because they feel a need to control people since somebody else is probably controlling them. But if one person is able to use their energy to manipulate people, then they are risky to be around. My family has this ability. For non-psychics, it is hard to fight since few have defenses against it unless they are properly trained in psychic arts. To fight against a manipulator, one has to reject the manipulative behavior. Wounded people who have low self-esteem are underneath the vicious manipulator. Some have narcissism or histrionic or borderline, maybe even all three.
Manipulation is defined as a subtle means of controlling another person’s actions. Pushing someone around on an energetic level means that they may or may not react to the manipulation. If people not on meds try this stuff, their ability eventually erodes to the point people around them are less vulnerable. If somebody drinks and doesn’t take medication for any mental illness, then they are less able to manipulate. Some manipulative people take great joy in manipulating others. It makes their whole day. While I’m not manipulative, my family can be so. This could be categorized as outright cruelty to do to another person.
Manipulative people are driven to feel in control at all times, even if the person who bullies them is controlling them without the victim realizing it. Some manipulators, who use this as a way of life, eventually lose their touch, as they get older, in particular, if they have untreated mental health problems. These victimizers have an entitlement complex. Some manipulators are outright bored. These sorts do it for fun. Or kicks. I personally do not want to manipulate people on any level, although I do use my inherited ability to get the truth out of somebody if necessary. Many people admit the truth to me because of my energy. They know I will listen. Don’t be a doormat to people who want to take advantage of you. It happens to people who want to nice other people to death. Manipulators do not like facts though. They hate solid, factual evidence, and you see there are two kinds of talking about other people. There is positive talking about other people and negative talking about other people, the negative being making up lies. If you make stuff up, this is negative talking badly about other people. Positive talking about other people means you say good things but mention their wrongdoing in positive terms, as in, what could they do better?
