Why Does a Narcissist’s Eyes turn Black?


Imagine having an intense argument or a fight with a narcissist, and suddenly, the narcissist starts raging like never before. Their animalistic and primal side starts coming out, and their eyes start turning black. This horrific visual sends shivers down your spine because you have never seen anything like this before.

There are two explanations for the phenomenon – one is a scientific, trauma-informed explanation, and the other is spiritual. I’ll cover both in today’s episode. Let’s begin with the trauma-informed understanding of what’s going on.
