There seems to be a problem in society with narcissists rising to positions that can put vulnerable people (and in many cases those who believe they are not vulnerable) in compromising situations.
Narcissistic personality disorder is a when a person has a distorted image of themselves, which usually causes emotional instability. They are often preoccupied with image and the way in which the world views them and always have an exaggerated sense of superiority and lack of empathy.
My argument is that narcissists need to be empowered by others to flourish, and while I am not saying it is a quick overnight fix, if we could educate people on understanding narcissism, then we could move towards less of us empowering their behaviour.
Most people have consciously or unconsciously had experience with narcissists- they are usually very charming, disarming and appear to be caring. However it is my observation that energetically narcissists are usually very cold, they say the right thing, there body language is often very consistent with someone with the right agenda, but there is usually a stillness within their demeanor and a feeling that they give off. Unfortunately to so many narcissists being in the public eye, we have become desensitized to this energy.
Due to their lack of empathy and belief in their own greatness, it is easier for those with narcissistic traits to reach positions of power. This empowers the narcissists as they rely on others to give them their sense of worth, this is dangerous in situations when the victims are vulnerable and this is also why narcissists are attracted to positions such as spiritual leaders, politics and positions in which they appear to be helping others.
Should we become reconnected with our own intuitive abilities we can stop empowering narcissists and allowing them to manipulate those more vulnerable. In this video I speak more about narcissism and 3 areas in which I have this personality type recently.
