The uses of bodily excitement and aliveness to do a cheat.
This stage really ranges from wholly unconscious or subconscious danger to perceptible danger but only just perceptible. The source of the danger is unknown. Thus in the first part of this stage the fear may not be recognized and the person only perceives the bodily excitation, feeling warm or hot suddenly or sudden alertness and/or other fear related conditions. And appreciate too that this only takes seconds. The body is designed to act fast in the case of danger, even if the perception is subconscious. In the last part of this stage the danger is recognizable but the source of the danger is not recognized. So the person identifies their bodily excitation as fear but doesn’t know its source.
Both the highly excited and the recognizable danger stage, in both of which the targeted person will be highly perceptive, can be used to deceive. That is done by the added ideas that are mentally presented. And it is important to appreciate that the danger is posed by people who are trivially, mildly or moderately entangled (related) and the ideas by someone strongly entangled (related).
1. Manufacturing “falling in love at first sight”!
In this cheat gun-carrying individuals (GCIs) are first brought into the vicinity of the person targeted and then an idea is presented such as “he’s gorgeous” or “she’s divine” and so on.
The idea is always presented by someone who is close and /or known to the person targeted. The trivial entanglement with the GCIs means the danger issue is too faintly perceived to be conscious. The strong entanglement of the person well known to the target means the idea is strongly perceived and conscious. Remember too that in the early stages of fear the executive function is either seriously reduced or may even be disabled so the person is unable to think about it and reason. Indeed the person who is seen as “gorgeous” or “divine” can also be the very person who presents the idea. This may be missed because of the inability to think. For example I remember a case where two women were talking at a party and a guy walked into the room. In about a minute the one woman said,
“oh he’s gorgeous. I think I am falling in love with him”.
The other woman said “He’s Danny! That’s your distant cousin silly, the one you went to school with”. Then the first woman, giggling said,
“Oh yeah so it is. But I still think I’m falling in love with him”.
Either the Danny guy or the other woman could have presented the ideas. And it is interesting to see that the executive function can be knocked out sufficiently not to even recognize a relative that is well known to the person until it is pointed out to them. The effect however may be a combination of the inability to think temporarily and the emotional charge of the body because it feels warm and pleasurable without the realization that there is fear behind it. Noticing this one can quickly realise that this is a cheat.
This seeming “in love” feeling will of course need periodic repetition or “pep ups” to keep the person hooked. But these would also be interchanged with anxiety of some sort, maybe not serious anxiety so that a strong connection with the person is made that causes both pleasure and fear. The fear of course would be made to appear connected with the thought of “losing the loved one”. The reason here is that this in-love cheat can be used either as a reward or it can be even done as a punishment. So for instance if the person has done something that toxic person wants them to do, then they get a “dose of love”. I on the other hand they have angered the toxic person by expressing their own opinion, they can again be made to feel the “in love” feeling but it will be followed by anxiety that will be felt as “a bad feeling” and thus led to feel guilt. This then would be accompanied by more fear with the added ideas of “losing the loved one”.
Another situation that I have seen is that the cheat is first used to entrap the person. It is then used copiously to create “a strong bond” and then the toxic person leaves them. If nothing more happens then the entrapped person would soon get over it because it was not real to begin with. Over a short period of time the body-mind simply returns to its normal state. However the continuation of this game is then to make the person feel longing and loss and become utterly broken hearted. And they can be led to becoming alcoholic or suicidal or seriously depressed, develop cancer or a heart problem and so on.
How to overcome this?
Two basic things to recognize.
- The only situation in which suddenly and unexpected bodily excitation is fear and nothing else. Love at first sight is a far less intense bodily excitation and there is mellowness about the experience.
- We do not normally give ourselves a running commentary of what we experience. As for instance now I am entering a room, I see other people, I feel hot and so on. We experience these things without mental remarks. When you get ideas that sound like comment then you can bet your bottom dollar they are presented ideas, suggestion.
Both of the above are observable; though the bodily excitation maybe harder to appreciate than the idea presented. Here is the real value of meditation and the “developing of the mind” or to develop mindfulness. If you are an experienced meditator you will pick up on these far more easily and early and be able to address the matter right at the start because you will have trained yourself to be able to perceive finer and finer perceptions and thoughts. You would thus be able to recognize that this is a trap. This is important because the manipulative person will definitely abuse their captive “victim on tap” later and possibly also for the rest of their life. It is certainly harder to break free if several years have elapsed because the person has been “conditioned”. This means that there are mental conditions that have been very impressionable or even developed to belief. They need to be overcome. However the truth is the great cleanser. Once a person appreciates the reality then he or she can overcome the conditioning, incredibly quickly and easily. They will thus be able to stand against the attempts made to hold them captive and walk away from the toxic person. It is true that a toxic person will continue to make attempts to hurt the spouse or partner who left them but even these can be overcome when a person knows what is involved. Ultimately however this is not an individual problem but a societal problem that needs urgent addressing.
Using discernible danger and recognizable fear.
The danger can be increased or alternatively danger may be presented by someone mildly to moderately related to the person. In this case the danger will be perceived enough for the person to identify the bodily excitation as fear. However the source of danger will still be unknown. The advantage here is that the danger and resultant fear, which is perceived and can be thus used to manufacture a belief in an unsuspecting person.
The aim here is again to artificially empower a suggestion. In this case the fear is felt and can even be felt strongly but as it occurs simultaneously with the suggestion, it may be erroneously associated with the suggestion that is being made. The suggestion can be verbal but it is much more misleading if it is mentally presented. As the real source of danger is hidden the unsuspecting person erroneously associates the fear with “the idea in their mind” that in reality is not their thinking but a mere suggestion. So the aim here is to lead the targeted person by first making them think the idea is the cause of the fear and hence must be true. When a person accepts that something is true and on top of it because they “see reason” in the mistaken perception that it has made them feel fear then you have a belief. They can then be led to further believe that the suggestion made is inescapable. Indeed “it’s inescapable” may be an added suggestion. In this case there is some truth in this second suggestion if the targeted person is standing in a position in which they are essentially “a sitting duck”. As for instance in the illustration below, if the trigger was pulled and the rifle fired correctly then the person would be shot. So truth is essentially “lent” to the first suggestion made. Here again two ideas are associated when indeed they are really about two vastly different things. One is the ill will of a toxic person and the other is an indication about the danger posed.
Of course when you know the foul play you can very easily overcome it. Yes the feeling is strong but that feeling is fear BUT it is not some “perception of reality” with respect to the suggestions presented. It is a perception of the reality of the danger posed, which has nothing to do with the suggestion made.
I have found also that when you reject it they may move to employ “reasoning” and such reasoning may use logic and appear sound. I have also found that toxic people may present the suggestion more forcefully and assertively. For the awakened and thus suspicious person this is just more evidence that the idea is just a presented one, someone else’s suggestion.
Ideas are simple packets of information and thoughts are the perceptions of those packets of information, awareness and nothing more. But the stumbling block is that ideas and thoughts can depict danger and in such cases will act as directives to the body, to arouse the body to fear. However an idea in itself cannot be forceful or attractive nor can an idea be dangerous as to cause fear. There is a difference. Ideas are not in business for themselves. Furthermore when challenged and idea does not begin to present you with reasoning and logic. Here again mindfulness is of immense value. One can perceive the difference between one’s own reasoning and the presentations that sound like reasoning. The problem is not trivial though and it takes not only skill but knowledge of the cheats or procedures to be able to have the best discernment.
It is important to recognize that, while it is normal to get angry from time to time at the injustice, the cheat can be used as a stepping stone to greater awareness. Progress is made when one realizes that with each failure a lesson is learnt and with each attempt made by toxic people practice is afforded the person that is awake and wary. This can be used to further refine the mind and reach even greater levels of consciousness, to bring to the conscious realm all that is subconscious and unconscious. And lastly success in defeating the evil you level up. And rising above the evil is rewarded with experience of pure awareness and bliss.
