Is Richard Grannon an Occultist? His Shocking Response

Is Richard Grannon an Occultist? His Shocking Response

As I was preparing to interview fellow YouTuber and narcissistic abuse recovery expert Richard Grannon, I asked the SPANily if they had any questions they wanted me to ask him. One in particular really stood out for me: Is he an occultist? His answer was pretty surprising. Let me explain.

There is a stigma attached to the word “occult,” but it’s not always deserved. It can refer to everything from hypnosis and ESP to astrology and Wicca. So, while many people have a negative connotation of the word, there are many disciplines which fall under it which can be useful. Some of these disciplines deal with mental aspects such as memory, imagination, and concentration and physical aspects like healing and psychic phenomenon.

And most importantly, as Grannon points out, “occult” is a word we use to describe what happens in the hidden recesses of the mind.

Who is Richard Grannon?

Richard Grannon is a popular YouTuber and narcissistic abuse recovery expert. Known to many as the “Spartan Life Coach,” Grannon has a BSc in Psychology from Aston University. Throughout his 20’s and early 30’s, he worked in the security industry and taught self-defense.
Alongside this, he was worked as a trainer in the Education sector for 5 years across the UK developing and delivering programs to students and teachers to improve their emotional intelligence, capacity to teach/learn in a way that was functional and effective for the students and various relevant psychology skills syncretically adapted from multiple modalities including CBT, mindfulness, NLP, psychoanalytic theory, positive psychology, and hypnosis.

What is an occultist?

An ‘occultist’ is defined as an individual who practices or studies occultism. Occultism, in turn, is a system of beliefs and practices related to the paranormal and supernatural. The word ‘occult’ itself means that which is hidden or concealed, hence its relation to those things which are beyond our physical perception. The term is often used synonymously with ‘black magic,’ ‘witchcraft,’ or ‘sorcery.’ Patterns are seen by occultists as inherent in nature, and they believe that by studying these patterns they can come to understand the structure of the universe. It is this understanding that allows them to influence the world around them. An occultist might, for example, try to use their knowledge of the pattern of energy flow in a city to influence the stock market.

Momentum and Motivation: 6 Strategies That Give You an Edge

Momentum and Motivation: 6 Strategies That Give You an Edge

The old adage “slow and steady wins the race” is actually sometimes true. The tortoise in the story of the tortoise and the hare won the race not because he was the smartest, smallest, or even wittiest. Rather, he won the race due to his laser-focus on the end result: the goal line.

If you struggle to keep momentum and motivation during your own quest to achieve a goal, you’re not alone! It’s common for survivors of narcissistic abuse.

Even though plateaus, setbacks, and relapses are completely normal when it comes to life-changing goals, there are many things you can do to keep the fire inside during the journey.

Try these strategies to maintain your momentum and motivation:

  1. Take action daily. This is the single best step you can take in order to further your momentum. Taking action ensures that you’re making progress, no matter how small. Even if you don’t know exactly what action you’ll be taking, just do something, anything, to further yourself.
    • For example, If you want to lose weight, it’s important to burn more calories than you take in each day. If you want to grow your business, review business growth materials.
  2. Find motivational nuggets. Take a few minutes each day to read something inspiring, whether it’s motivational quotes or affirmations to keep your confidence going.
    • Motivational quotes that inspire you can help transcend your mindset away from the daily grind and onto things that are bigger than yourself!
  3. Check your progress. If you’re feeling stuck or like you’re not moving forward, review your goal that you’re trying to accomplish. Write down your goals and check in on your progress each day.
    • Think positively about how close you are to the goalpost rather than how far you are from it.
  4. Talk to another. Find another person who has already achieved goals similar to the ones you’re working on.
    • If you’re goal is to get physically fit, for example, find a bodybuilder, runner, athlete or other like-minded individual whose been in your shoes.
    • Extract all the wisdom, advice and helpful tidbits that you can from their story.
  5. Plan your week. Scheduling time to work on things related to your goals is critical. We use schedules for everything else in our lives, so there’s no reason that time devoted to working on personal goals cannot be included as well.
  6. Reward yourself. Small rewards have been shown to motivate everyone from kids to older adults. Rewards act as a positive reinforcement, and even affirmation of a job well done.
    • When we’re being rewarded, we tend to continue pressing on towards our goals.

These are just a few of the things that we can do on a regular basis to keep motivation and ensure that we’re continually making progress.

The key word is “progress.” If we’re taking some action or doing even just one thing on a daily basis that furthers us along in our goals, we’ll feel better about ourselves and be able to keep that momentum.

Other things that we can do on a regular basis to keep momentum and motivation alive is to write in a journal, listen to inspiring talks, join a support group related to our goals, spend a few minutes in quiet meditation on our life’s purpose, or even posting daily reminders.

The more alive that we can make our goals, the more inspired and motivated we’ll be to take action and achieve them.

Narcissistic Filibuster: When a Narcissist Won’t Shut Up (The Opposite of the Silent Treatment)

What do you do when a narcissist gets you into an hours-long “discussion” meant to manipulate you into doing what they want
or into keeping your thoughts to yourself about something they have done wrong. I call this a narcissistic filibuster. It’s sort of the opposite of the silent treatment. This video is in response to a viewer named Kate, who said:

“I don’t get the cold shoulder or being ignored. I get hours, and hours of being talked to. It almost feels like I’m being preached to. At one point, he talked for 5 HOURS NON STOP! I now, to try and avoid it, I act like I’m asleep. Sometimes it works… Do you have any insight on this situation? Thanks.”
