Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

When you have seen true evil at work in people, you get to see how Satan’s mind works and how he encourages the ‘perfect cover’.


Abusers nearly always have a good ‘cover’. The clever ones do. The highly manipulative ones do.

Having a good cover, is the perfect way to deceive the most amount of people.

Abuse is evil, is of Satan, not of God.

My worst abuser – was man who did charity work – he was in the local newspapers for his contribution to charities. But behind the fake, lovely, kind man façade was a sociopath, a sadistic man, who abused for his pleasure. He delighted in terrorising a vulnerable teenager, with every kind of severe abuse. This truly was evil at work, and I saw it in him, what he was driven by, what he loved, what gave him joy , the master manipulator and it was all evil.

But, his image on the outside, was a successful business man, a charity supporter, married to a teacher, with 3 children. The perfect cover. Just as Satan wanted, and encouraged, as the better the cover, the more abuse and evil can be done.

Recently, I endured spiritual abuse, from a pastor. What a perfect cover – a Church leader, who helps many and seems so lovely and kind. Of course Satan encouraged that, it would be one of his favourite situations, spiritual abuse by ‘Christians’ in leadership positions – leaders with these personality disorders. Of course he wants a man he will use for evil, to look like someone so ‘good’. Of course he wants people to ignore someone who shouts ‘wolf’ to the Church, to all be fooled into thinking this person shouting ‘wolf’ is wrong, is a trouble maker. And Satan is at work in encouraging these fools who don’t listen as well.

Satan is clever, he’s not just some idiot angel who is acting badly and lashing out like a child. He is evil beyond most people’s personal understanding and will manipulate in very clever ways, to ensure the most amount of destruction against God.

Of course Satan wants the best covers for people, and he plays his hands carefully, allowing these people to ‘do good’ and create their image, their fake façade. But, he knows who these people are inside, these empty, weak people, who can look like they are doing good, but behind the scenes are also easily tempted by Satan, when patiently Satan waits to play his best hand.

He is really clever in this way, as he knows the better the cover, the less likely these people will get stopped, if they become exposed.

Satan then continues on in encouraging these abusers if exposed – to lie, deny, minimize, reflect and attack the victim, say things that make the victim look bad.

This is why I know narcissists and sociopaths are used so easily be Satan, they are some of Satan’s favourite people to use and get used easily and is why so many narcs and sociopaths abuse, with no remorse, no guilt, no empathy, no compassion, no repentance and will do it again.

But, unwise people will look at the situation, at the fake façade, the ‘cover’, and think ‘well look at all the ‘good’ this man has done, he’s a good man really, we should believe he didn’t mean this abuse, well give him another chance’. With Satan delighting in this and how clever he is to deceive more.

I have the depth of understanding evil, because I have seen it at work, I know how these minds work and I can see how Satan uses them, in a highly clever and manipulative way, to fool and deceive as many people as possible.

Are these narcs and sociopaths evil?

Well, that’s not my judgement to make – but that is not even the issue – it is the evil they are so easily able to perform by abusing people in such a highly manipulative way, with no remorse, and an attitude of ‘how dare you expose me’ and abuse even more. Plus, their lack of capability to address and change their personality disorder and I can clearly see Satan all the way through this, as I know evil at work, I have seen it many times.

These personality disorders are Satan’s delight.

But sadly, so many can’t see this.

But, I can because I have seen and endured evil since childhood, I’ve had decades of having to see, assess and study evil at work, learn all their thoughts, to stay safe, to stay alive.

But, I also know God’s greater power at work, and how He equips some of His children, like me with the inner deeper knowledge and understanding of this evil at work and God uses us, to expose this evil and protects us and heals us in the process, as He has, His grace and love so evident.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. You are a very intelligent and wise woman. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    • Thank you Jane. I have been equipped with much insight into evil at work and to understand on a deeper level how Satan works.

      My life has afforded me insight into Satan, but also into God’s far greater awesome power, love, healing and how my life has God’s grace written all through it.

      To know both on a deeper level than many, is a privilege and I see my life is a privilege, despite all the suffering and abuse.
