Julia Cameron used the term “crazymaker” in her book The Artist’s Way, when she wrote about how chaotic personalities can derail artists.
However, crazymakers are equally destructive for all of us sensitives, empaths, intuitives… all of us who feel everything all the time.
As sensitives, we empathically feel the energy of a crazymaker, and this energy does not make sense to us, because its vibration is chaos, and sometimes it is chaos mixed with darkness.
There are crazymakers who aren’t dark: they’re flaky and inconsistent and self-absorbed, but they’re not malicious: they’re just off in their own little world.
These types of crazymakers are annoying, but if you have good boundaries, they won’t affect you much. You might feel slightly anxious or even nauseated when you’re around them, but it’s not intentional. They’re not trying to hurt you.
But dark crazymakers, often lumped under the broader categories of narcissists and sociopaths, are another story.
These folks work hard to bring chaos to your life. For example, some politicians are crazymakers; they’ve learned to use crazymaking as a tool to distract from what they’re really doing.
There are crazymakers in your own life who also take delight in creating chaos: maybe a family member, a partner, a friend, a colleague.
The thing is, crazymakers love empaths, sensitives and intuitives, because we’re so easy to tweak!
Empaths, sensitives and intuitives are often way too nice for our own good; we put up with the bad behavior of others because we are too polite to say “no.”
Yet there is no reason any of us have to be in energy that is chaotic, destructive, demeaning, dark, or evil.
If you haven’t said “no” yet to the crazymaker in your life, today is a great day to start.
