I’m a “numbers” guy, and over the past year, I’ve seen a new statistic that I felt obligated to make you aware of.
It appears to me that individuals who display a certain type of “conditioned mindset” and “energetic vibration” have a very, very low chance of recovering from opioid addiction.
The psychology and energetic vibration I’m talking about is the combination of:
- Being Outraged
- Blaming Others
- Being a Victim
I continue to witness more and more of this popping up, and in my opinion, it’s now a full-blown epidemic here in the United States.
And of course, these traits can be seen in all populations… not just individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD).
But for the people that are dependent on opioids, wanting to quit, and also carrying this cluster of traits and energy (called “Victim Energy”), my belief is that their chances of recovery are very, very low.
I say this because I’ve yet to see anyone emitting a strong Victim Energy vibration get off opioids.
That’s not to say it hasn’t happened and it can’t happen.
But I’ve corresponded with over 10,000 people over the last 7+ years, and I still haven’t seen it happen once.
In this article, you’re going to learn about Victim Energy, and how to identify if your mindset and energy have fallen down to this low energetic vibration.
Additionally, you’ll learn the steps you can take to stop being a Victim, and thus make you happier, healthier, and on the path to opioid recovery.

The “Outrage” Epidemic
There is a superabundance of epidemics occurring simultaneously in the US. The Opioid Epidemic was silent for many years, but now it has received enough national media attention that most people are aware of it.
However, other epidemics are still “quiet” epidemics.
And in my opinion, the Outrage Epidemic is still pretty quiet, though more people are noticing this trend.
Let’s clearly define this:
outrage (noun) – “an extremely strong reaction of anger, shock, or indignation.”
epidemic (noun) – “a sudden, widespread occurrence of a particular undesirable phenomenon.”
More than ever before, people are jumping on the “Outrage Train.”
You’ve seen this, I’m sure, on Facebook.
Someone shares an article (perhaps on politics), and comment after comment all you see is Outrage and Blame.
blame (verb) – “assign responsibility for a fault or wrong.”
In addition to so many people jumping on the Outrage and Blame Train, there appears to also be a Pettiness Train.
pettiness (noun) – “undue concern with trivial matters, especially of a small-minded or spiteful nature.”
It’s astonishing to witness so much pettiness in America these days.
People are losing their sh#t over the smallest of concerns.
You see this on Facebook, YouTube comments, the News, in relationships, families, friendships, and pretty much everywhere there are humans.
The Victim Mindset & Energy
When we blame others and become outraged, we are making ourselves Victims.
And by doing so, we freely give away our Power, which means they now have the Power… and not us.
victim (noun) – “someone who has been wronged from unfairness or harmed.”
The Victim Mindset describes someone who is constantly blaming others.
It’s an extremely disempowering mindset.
Additionally, this “Victim Energy” is composed of a very low-frequency energetic vibration.
And this negative energy remains stored in our body, leading to mental and physical health issues.
How Victim Energy Prevents Opioid Recovery
As I stated in the intro of this piece, I’ve yet to see anyone with strong Victim Energy recover from opioid dependence.
Again, I’m sure it happens, but it’s not the “Ideal Mindset” to recover from addiction.
What I’ve noticed is that people who recover have an “Empowering Mindset.”
They take full responsibility for their lives, and they’re so focused on achieving their goal of getting off opioids that they don’t have the time or energy to blame others, become outraged, give someone else their power, or argue about petty things.
Victim Energy is all about “Poor me.”
“The world is against me.”
“This person did me wrong.”
“That person did me wrong.”
It’s about pointing fingers, blaming, giving away power, and playing the Victim Role.
This is disempowering, and it makes it much harder to quit opioids when you’ve given your power away to “the people that have wronged you.”
How To Take Your Power Back
The reason I’m able to write about this topic is not simply from the observation of others. Admittedly, I used to be a Victim. And I didn’t even realize it, as most people don’t.
My Intuitive Coach, Melissa, pointed this out to me on our second session.
I’ve worked on this ever since, and I still catch myself playing the Victim from time to time.
Now that I’ve been made aware of this, when I see it popping up I’m able to notice it… then work on getting rid of it.
If you self-identify with this concept of Victim Energy, here are steps you can take to get your Power back:
- Journal about all the ways you’re blaming others, and thus making yourself a Victim.
- Realize that by playing the Victim, you’re giving others your Power.
- Decide that you want your Power back.
- Take your Power back by focusing on your Goals and Dreams, and not on how others have wronged you.
- Decide that you will no longer blame others, as this doesn’t serve you, and make it a life practice to avoid doing this.
Growing out of Victim Consciousness is easier said than done.
It takes a lot of work.
But the recovery process begins with Awareness.
It’s nearly impossible to grow out of if you’re not even aware that you’re doing it.
So… if you identify with having the Victim Mindset after reading this post, now you’re at least aware of it, and thus can begin the process of recovery.
And in doing so, you’ll also make the journey of recovering from opioid dependence much easier.
