This is the third and final part on the series on psychopaths. The purpose of this short series is to help you identify a possible psychopath in your personal circle, to consider positive ways to cope with the negative behaviours and finally to visualize positive ways to flip the negatives to positives.
What is really wonderful about being in a close association with a psychopath is that there is never a dull moment. Since they love drama and tend to stir the pot & cause conditions of chaos with their lies or misinformation campaigns, then there is always an opportunity to keep looking at the negatives and finding the positives.
My favourite emotions to work with are fear, anger, jealousy & sadness. A psychopath is a master at stirring these up in individuals. Usually, their intention is to seek to find a person’s emotional weak spots and push on them in order to try to topple them. When others are toppled in their emotional state of frailty, then the psychopath can carry on with their (sometimes criminal) agendas. In order for their schemes to work, they must confuse and disorient their associates. Their manipulations will be determined by whatever is the most pressing desired outcome.
Most modern psychiatry only deals with trying to get rid of the negatives but that’s not the way I’ve been trained to do things. In my work, I become friends with the negatives, become friends with the negative emotions and I walk with others through their darkest moments until we get to the positive other side.
You can think of it as walking through a wall, or breaking a wall down. Think of it as escaping a prison cell, or using a flashlight in the fog. Think of it as being calm in a storm, bright in the black night. A navigator in a stormy sea. Whatever someone else is going through, no matter how dark, there is a bright and positive potential for that negative emotion.
When trauma has caused the negative, then it is a good idea for the person to get some help from a healing professional and there are many good ones in the world. Does early trauma cause psychopathy? Or is is a learned trait? Or is it inherited? There is so much to be learned.
What I find exciting about working with psychopaths is that their perpetual negatives can be flipped to perpetual positives. Imagine what that would be like? Continuous waves of positives like Courage, Confidence, Calm and Enthusiasm flowing into day-to-day life perpetually. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
When I work with criminals, I don’t mind when the negatives show up because those are my favourite to work with. That’s where the very most positives emerge from. That’s where the deepest and most profound growth begins.
