JEAN M. TWENGE, PhD: “Is Donald Trump Actually Insecure Underneath?”

I’m often asked how you can spot a narcissist. Here’s my standard list:

  • Brag or show off
  • Name-dropping
  • Name brands or flashy possessions
  • Look at themselves in the mirror a lot
  • Turn the conversation back to him/herself
  • Insults others
  • Declarations about being the “best” or “great” without details
  • Emphasizes his/her status

I wrote that list two years ago — long before Donald Trump started running for president. Yet it could have been written just for him. As others have pointed out, the Donald is a textbook case of narcissistic personality. He is clearly functioning well and thus can’t be classified as having narcissistic personality disorder, the clinical-level form, which by definition only describes someone whose traits are causing them difficulty. Trump, instead, displays narcissism as a personality trait — the type we focus on in The Narcissism Epidemic.

Here’s the question: Is Trump’s narcissism a cover for insecurity? This is known as the “mask model” — the idea that grandiose narcissism is a show to distract people from the deep psychic pain underneath. A recent piece in Time made this claim, arguing that Trump is trying to cover for a “profound insecurity and lack of self-esteem.”

Here’s the problem: At least for grandiose narcissism like Trump’s, there’s no evidence that the mask model is true. Narcissists have high self-esteem on average, not low, and the most aggressive people are those with both high narcissism and high self-esteem. Children who become narcissistic are not those shamed by their parents, but those told they are special.

Perhaps the best evidence comes from studies measuring self-esteem in a subtle way, such as with an implicit self-esteem measure recording people’s reaction time in pairing words like “I” and “me” with words like “bad” and “good.” People who score high on grandiose narcissism also score high on implicit self-esteem. In other words, deep down inside, narcissists think they are awesome.

This is also just plain common sense: Does Trump really seem like he is insecure underneath? Does he seem to be in a state of psychic pain, or even covering for one? No — he’s having the time of his life. So why does he seem to crave all of the attention and adulation? The Time article argues that Trump is trying to fill a deep “psychic hole.”

I have a more straightforward explanation: He likes all of the attention because he thinks he deserves it. It’s never enough not because of psychic pain, but because he thinks everyone should pay attention to him. Attention is fun and gratifying; it has nothing to do with insecurity.

Why the Mask Model of Narcissism Is Dangerous

I will go further: I think it’s dangerous to believe that narcissists are insecure underneath. Not only is it not supported by empirical evidence, but it promotes the idea that the way to deal with narcissists is to boost their self-esteem and heal their “wounds” through more love and affection. This is like suggesting that the way to cure obesity is by giving everyone more doughnuts. The narcissistic person who ruins relationships through his self-centeredness does not need more love or attention — he needs to get kicked to the curb. The young adult who takes advantage of everyone around her does not need her self-esteem boosted — she needs to learn responsibility.

Narcissism is known as the “disease that hurts other people,” and the cure for it is real life — losing a relationship because of selfishness, losing a job because you’ve alienated people. Yes, we should try to understand narcissists and realize that their behavior is explained by this personality trait. But that does not mean we should believe that they are actually insecure — that myth undermines our understanding of narcissism because it presumes that it’s only skin-deep.

Many, many people have been hurt in relationships with narcissists by believing that they can change the person with more love. If only that were true — but sadly, most of the time, it’s not. We can have empathy for people with narcissistic traits, but that does not mean we have to believe they are suffering underneath. Most of the time, they are making other people suffer. They won’t suffer themselves until bad things start happening to them, often as a consequence of their narcissism. It is sad, but it is not due to insecurity.

Trump is not insecure. We should not be looking for the source of his “psychic pain” or expect that someday he will break down and show his true, doubting self. He really does think that he’s that great, and that his ideas are that great. If we believe otherwise — about him or anyone else with these traits — we risk underestimating the true power of the narcissist.

ALLISON ENGEL: “The Psychopath Archetype”

Generally speaking, when we think in terms of psychopathy, we think serial killers and a few names come to mind; Manson, Gein, Dahmer and so on and so forth.  What if the behavioral mechanism that constitutes these extreme behavior patterns weren’t that far from home?

In the archetypal suite, there is a fine line between spirituality and psychosis, a fine line between genius and madness.  We walk this line every day in our waking life.

  • Is there a torture chamber within the recesses of your subliminal reality?

  • Are you trying to escape a certain set of rules or trauma?

It is quite possible that obeying the rules of society is harder because of the anima/animus within your own psyche.

Anima/Animus possession will cause a neurotic, often narcissistic/egoic and predatory behavior in seemingly every day people.  It is the energetic imprint of trauma.  We know that trauma begets trauma, but what is the correlation and the energetic exchange between authority/aggressor/perpetrator/narcissistic parent and the child/victim/abuse?  It is the fact that these worlds actually collide.

The child/victim archetype merges with the perpetrator/predator and it fractalizes behavioral elements due to the loss of innocence and imprint of paralyses, shock, and horror.

  • Is it helpful to be shocked and disgusted by others or world events?
  • Does it separate you into a class of world citizens that are not also able to shock and disgust others with your beliefs?
  • How do you become a victim by being challenged into cognitive dissonance and by new thought processes or concepts?

Your shadow is trained to stay resilient by focusing and reminding you that the problem is out there and not within.

  • Is it more painful to be you than you would like to admit?
  • Is there still a traumatic imprint that hasn’t been healed from yet?
  • Is shying away from this archetype helping your hard-drive function or is it continuing to affect you and others in your experience?

This pressure cooker will continue to steam if we are not able to separate the facts from fiction in our waking life.  This serves as an analgesic and an escape route into the other realms.  When we experience anima/animus possession there is a voice in our head reminding us that we are never going to approximate to anything and at the same time augments into specialness or righteousness.  It is the ultimate bi-polar regimen.

The child is covering over its impermeable and nihilistic and confused frustrations with efforts to self-aggrandize and hold onto a layer of unneeded and unending suffering.  It is very much there to rob the individual of its accomplishments and of the present moment.  This is very much the issue with people who just can’t seem to get it together.

There is a need to separate the anima/animus from the shadow.

  • What do you believe about others in your experience?
  • Are they being de-humanized by your belief systems in your fragmented archetypes?

There will continue to be whispers of specialness with the savior archetype attached to the idea that the rules simply don’t apply.  There is a lack of linear time awareness and thus the regression into opposing archetypes happens quickly and like a landslide.

Due to the temporal deficit, the child is only able to micromanage other’s causes and effects and blame the institutions and parents, siblings.  Once the parents, the government, or institutions are fixed, then the child or self will be okay.  Unopposed this creates an unwillingness to conform.  Then it landslides back into the recesses of the unconscious to continue to blame and shame others.  There is any underlying need to fit in and an inability to accept rules.

There is a ghost in the archetypal suite that forms the base layers of consciousness that drives the ego.  The ego is not fully formed though, as it wears a narcissistic mask to hide the monstrous and tiny incoherent self.  The only way to stop this is to call out the shadow and at the same time observe the anima/animus and its effects.  The key here is to see the dark and the light attributes in both the father and the mother and coherently structure a self between the two perceptions of evil and divine in both.  When we are unable to see these distortions in our “selves”, we continue to project and augment others and the world strategy.

We continue to battle light and dark as if the human psyche within is not both capable of war and love.  Once these two concepts are de-fragmented, the light joins the shadow and it then can empower the individuation instead of the person’s power continuing to be withheld and outside of itself.

The psychopath archetype is an imprint of formidable psychosis that suggests that fear will best train and control the masses.  Just turn on the news and see if this energy resonates within your structure.  Are you either obsessed with listening or looking into the fear programs or is there a fear of hearing people with other ideas speaking?  Mass media has become a church that is subdivided in what will illicit and entice and what is safe and marks fervent debauchery.  How is this actually your own inability to be challenged or communicate effectively?  Are you not being heard and can you actually hear others?  Logic is not communicated easily when all affronts are up and ready for combat.  You can’t hear clarity if you have to protect a small self from identification with static ideas that serve nothing but self-gratification.

  • Is fear constituting your bandwidth on either side of this polarity?
  • Would you be able to be challenged outside of your comfort zone to see that psychopathy is leading and is possibly innate within each other’s own consciousness?
  • Would you be able to question the concept of sanity/insanity within authority or are you still subdivided within your own unconscious parts that store this energetic signature?

War is not love.  Murder is not a blessing in disguise.  Torture is not something to be shared on Facebook.  What is it in you that is so fragmented that sees brutality and thinks it is needed?  Delineation is hard when the formatted hard drive wasn’t in linear fashion.  This is anima/animus possession and is part of the loss of time constructs in the psyche. It is not readily talked about but can be seen as projected matter into the ideation of others.

Inconsistencies then rear their ugly head within the psyche until the archetypes are seen and heard and healed.

The archetypes are all polarized and have been for centuries.

Are you ready to fight the war within your own consciousness to battle directly and lovingly the consciousness of others?

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Transposition Filters”

“The transposition field generates a host of unholy creations. The black miasmas break down into fragments that can become animated, and they create all kinds of strange debris and waste products in the planetary field that we may not yet have words for. In viewing these phantom areas, there are creatures and beings that are soul-less, and dead creatures used for carrying out certain functions in the black magic fields. They are inorganic creations, but they’re being generated by this transposition field to serve the black magic grids.”

SESSION TRANSCRIPT

Excerpt:

This artificial structure reverses the natural polarity in the energetic systems in the planetary body and our consciousness energy can start to break down or fragment when exposed. That’s where the breakdown of energy that is splitting apart starts impacting the genetic material, usually impacting the first line of defense in the immune system, activating the weakness level that has been inherited into our biology. This level of fragmentation is what we can see happening at this time on this planet. Why is it that more people are not waking up, and why are they not connecting to their inner spirit and Awakening to higher truth? There are some levels of that Genetic Mutation that are being cleared during this morphogenesis phase, because the planetary body has recently become connected to more of the out of time, zero point currents. These non-polarized currents are beyond 12D. We can use de-polarization techniques to remove these etheric types of Holographic Insert and implant structures, in the antiparticle fields which is the section that remains invisible to most people. Looking at the blueprint organized within the anti-particle fields of the planet, is where all the Miasmas are distorted into dead energy in sections of the planetary body.

It is through these distortions they have been controlling this 3D reality, right? Literally it is on the other side of the reality in the anti-particle layers where most of us can’t even see it through remote viewing. It’s like understanding there’s the particle universe and antiparticle universe with multiple timelines. A part of the Ascension cycle is that the particle and antiparticle layers are merging, and as it does the Timelines are collapsing and merging also. But at certain points in the energetic system, when we’re talking about looking at the human being’s auras, now we’re basically looking at both sides of the parallels. There is the particle manifestation at some level in time, and then simultaneously we’re looking at the antiparticle manifestation of the same thing in the parallels. It is similar to revealing the reversal negative of a photographic artifact, looking at the inversion pattern, but where we are looking now is that place where the collective miasmas have been created as a form of human consciousness oppression. Because these constructs have been created on the out breath of our travelling spiritual force, in the antiparticle function of our consciousness bodies, which is where many of the Controllers have placed the Alien Implants that have siphoned off the life force frequencies from entering into the lightbody, and have produced all of that energy harvesting.

If we have an energetic block in our natural and organic flow, it is possible to siphon that energy flow into a particular direction, such as taking it to power their phantom systems or timeline agendas. So what I’m getting is that we’re starting to get more of these depolarized or non-polarized pulses and energy fusions of this particular level of frequency. And what is amazing about this, is that right now one of the biggest structures that is being dismantled on the planet itself, is an artificial dodecahedron structure. I’m viewing a grid that is all around the planet in Dodecahedrons, and it looks like in sets of five, in numerical five patterns, and I know there are massive levels of collective consciousness miasmas being held inside there. Understanding that as I’m looking at this dark crystal formed into a dodecahedron pattern, that this is a software AI program. Meaning they have programmed that Dodecahedron field to be arranged in the reversal NET static fields to run reversal polarities throughout the energetic system. Through our mental body, this can reverse our gender fin, gender pattern, and confuse the experience inside our body of the male and female energetic principle.

This is the Transposition Filter. What they are showing me is this thing is the five-sided crystal that encompasses the planet Earth elemental body, and therefore has been assimilated into the genetic material of human beings. There is a dodecahedron structure that acts as an transposition filter to reverse the images and energy current in the lower timelines. Many of us as gridworkers are called to witness the artificial structure, to look at the miasmatic fields being produced at the antiparticle level that is then routed to be processed by the collective body of humanity. So what’s happening is that as we are looking at the invisible field that is inverted from the surface of basic remote viewing, the next part, is that we are actually going to be systematically dissolving the artificial structure that has been creating that. This construct is a transposition field, reversal polarity current that is being generated from the larger Transposition Filter.

When we get into the creation fields, we can understand the Law of Gender, the masculine and feminine principle and the still point. Gridworkers are called to comprehend creation mechanics, to first understand there is the Divine Mother principle, which is the God seed and it’s emanation of the sound or sonic pillars. There is the Divine Father, the masculine principle and that is the God spark, the eternal light. And then there is the God spirit or the Holy Spirit, and that is the still point or void. This feels feminine because it’s emanating from the primal sound field.

The NAA are using an artificially generated sound field outside of the time matrix, to replicate and control the Mother principle for their inverted systems, and the artificial sound field is reverberating all the way through the layers of multiple timelines. And it’s creating this artificial pattern in the earth body grids, where the sound field is filtered into this dodecahedron structure in order to distort the energy architecture. I think a part of this is that we understand this piece, because this is going to be next in recognizing the importance of depolarization of the reversal fields, in order to dismantle the larger structures.

The dodecahedron grid is connected to the antiparticle miasma levels, in which remain largely invisible even to remote viewers. This structure is a five-sided grid formed into a massive dodecahedron crystal, which transposes and reverses all of the energy that comes into and out of this planet. What it means is that this dodecahedron grid is some kind of alien generated artificial structure. This is the actual system that is designed to collect all of the stellar and plasmic frequency that is coming from the outside or outer worlds. This means when our earth body aligns to other stellar bodies, like when the planet is aligned to Sirius, or when we align to the Pleiades, the planetary body is being blocked from processing that specific frequency. What goes on in the natural Ascension cycle is that the stellar body of earth is travelling and aligns to these various stellar and cosmic bodies. The forces of alchemy happens, the collaborative energies are shared and then the energies actually alchemize into higher vibrations and frequencies that should be conducted into the field of our planet. Therefore should be conducted by us, in our human physical bodies. As a consequence of frequency accretion we should naturally activate dormant DNA, because that is the process of activating our 12 strand DNA by activating our energy centers.

What has been largely preventing human ascension on a mass scale, is that there is an artificial dodecahedron field that acts as the structure to reverse polarity currents, and invert holographic images. Its function is to transpose the light and its coded information. In a natural world, think of the ray currents streaming down into the holographic reality, knowing that there are frequencies that exist within the organic structure of our God-ness, so to speak. And this organic frequency is higher consciousness intelligence coming from the Godhead or zero point, and it’s trying to run circuits upon the earth. When the natural frequencies are transmitting to the earth, it hits this artificial field, it hits this five sided grid, and its direction reverses. And that means the second this organic frequency hits this artificially generated dodecahedron crystal it transposes that energy current into a light reversal code. This artificial field generated by the transposition filter is designed to reverse the life code and reverse the life force, this is anti-life forces that are generating more miasmas. This is to understand that there are specific alien generated matrices that are designed to reverse the life code on the planet, which generates fallen forces of the anti-life or anti-christ.

What is critical to comprehend is that this only happens at the mental body levels. The Transposition Filter generates the reversals in the field that are in the mental body, it impacts the horizontal through mind control of the collective human mental bodies and it is completely reliant on the mental body principle in order to survive. Hence the survival of the negative ego constructs in the lower three dimensions are paramount to them. Not only is it transposing the life force generated on the planet, it is a part of the programs written for mind control in the lower three layers of negative ego. It is a part of the AI program, and its a part of the global mind control transmissions. These constructs are being controlled from the astral plane as well. More starseeded people are starting to sense this artificial construct in the field.

Now it is possible to get to the actual programming levels and source the artificial field that actually has been generating global mind control, implants and other forms of alien enslavement tools. We are going beyond the energy that exists around objects and into the layers of blueprint that originally created that form. The transposition grid, this mind control matrix transposition field is that which transposes energies and creates miasmas, which create blockages in the system of energy, and this generates anti-particle distortions in the bodies and on the planet that intentionally distort the blueprint to shut off DNA. This distortion field is what projects the demonics, the Alien Implants, all the weird alien crap that is connected to this Transposition Filter and the reversal fields. This means that these inorganic and artificial creations cannot continue to exist with the systematic dismantling of the transposition field as it has been gradually broken down and the waste substances transmutated.

So we’re entering another layer here in the anti-particle field and this gains access more directly to see the global mind control matrix that is used to suppress Ascension and mass awakening. The transposition field generates a host of unholy creations. The black miasmas break down into fragments that can become animated, and they create all kinds of strange debris and waste products in the planetary field that we may not yet have words for. In viewing these phantom areas, there are creatures and beings that are soul-less, and dead creatures used for carrying out certain functions in the black magic fields. They are inorganic creations, but they’re being generated by this transposition field to serve the black magic grids. Because what’s happening with this structure is that any human thought form can manifest into something corporeal through this reversal life program. Unfortunately, down here on earth very few people are aware of being able to control their personal thought forms and comprehend that their thoughts are manifest creations.

The Transposition Filter takes those thought form creations that are generated in the collective human mind, into the larger transposition field it generates, but this field runs a wide array of astral garbage and projects imaging with dark artifacts. This structure is creating Miasmas and all kinds of weird astral holographic projections based on AI programming and random etheric garbage it picks up from the collective field. I don’t even know what to call these things, because they’re miscreations, they’re inorganic, they’re demonic looking creatures, they’re ugly, and they’re grotesque. It’s like if you took off a filter and this program catches all the ugliness, all of the depravity that is generated in the collective human unconsciousness. It’s like a debris catcher, because there’s dark energy with all the astral garbage and artificial holographic creations and somehow they harvest it to be pointed back at us for the purpose of mind control. So this transposition field is creating reversal life code energy and therefore is extremely destructive to us and the planet. All of this intended harm, is a five sided grid that is designed to not only suppress and reverse the energy as it comes into the planet, but also to work the broadcast of the global mind control software to shape the negative ego construct.
