gaslighting

 

"When they don't like that you speak the truth, they will try to change your reality. They will create a world where your truth is considered an insanity" David Icke.

Gaslighting is a manipulative tactic aimed at distorting your perception of reality, so that you doubt your memory, perception, and ultimately, sanity. It involves subtle forms of psychological manipulation, such as denial, misdirection, and contradiction, with the intention of undermining confidence and autonomy. Gaslighting can leave you feeling confused, isolated, and vulnerable, trapped in a cycle of self-doubt and dependency. The card of Gaslighting urges you to recognise and confront manipulative behaviour in your relationships. It prompts you to trust your instincts and stand firm in your truth, refusing to be swayed by attempts to distort or invalidate your experiences. This card calls you to set boundaries and assert your autonomy, to reclaim your power and protect your mental and emotional well-being. If you are guilty of gaslighting someone else, recognise it honestly and seek therapy.

Gaslighting Mantra: I trust my intuition and hold firm to my truth, refusing to be manipulated or deceived.
