In today’s episode of “Healing From Within”, your host Sheryl Glick, author of The Living Spirit ,a story of Universal Energy, spiritual communication transformation healing and ways to awaken to our true human and divine potential welcomes Marie Jones author of Mind Wars, a documentation of how the desire to control the thoughts, behaviors and actions of others has been a pervasive theme from the dawn of humanity. In learning about the techniques used by cults, religions, political systems and societal training that affect the integrity of the most fundamental unit of our individuality and creative force, which is our mind we may still discover ways to resist and remain safe and strong during this new age of technology and the future influences of the media that may further erode our personal freedom of free thought. Mind Wars was written by Marie Jones and co-author Larry Flaxman two of the most accomplished research experts on the paranormal metaphysics, conspiracies and cutting edge science make startling predictions about the vulnerability of the human mind.
Marie explores the chronological history of mind control from spells, potions and rituals, to 21st century cults, drugs, psychic driving, electronic monitoring and government connections. We are aware that cultures religions and political systems often generate material and influences that might modify or alter human behavior. In looking to the past we may understand certain current behaviors beliefs and restrictions and may be able to create new ideas and views that serve us in a more open and liberated fashion. The hope is we will begin to recognize what are our own authentic thoughts and ways of creating our life and what are the thoughts programs and beliefs that have been imprinted on our minds from outside sources with their specific and often misaligned agendas for our well being.
Marie wrote, “Mind control techniques have been around since the beginning of civilization itself. As long as we are aware that we had separate minds and thought processes we became aware that there were motives for gain that could be attained by knowledge or different opinions beliefs and traditions and ideas that might control the thinking of individuals and groups. From the use of coercive persuasion by Ancient Egyptians and the Knights Templar to the mass mind manipulations and torture utilized by political and religious authorities through the Dark and Middle Ages to World War 11 and the inhumane Nazi experiments on concentration camp prisoners to the more recent CIA’s Project MKUltra mind control programs of the 1950’s to today’s claims of gang-stalking, electronic harassment microwave bombing and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) we have been victims of those who wish to hack into our privacy of the mind’s computer and rewrite our very thoughts and beliefs. It seems the past has many hidden dark secrets. The reason for this ongoing behavior of mind control is to create submission and obedience and is the ultimate control game……Those involved are not used to being direct, open and truthful and to prevent clarity because in clarity there is truth. The future is downright scary unless we find ways to protect the sanctuary of our inner realities: our minds and awareness, and our ability to choose and decide what is right and wrong.”
Brainwashing coercion thought reform mental manipulation psychological warfare programming conversion gas lighting indoctrination methods psychic driving crowd control: They all describe a method by which a person’s individual thoughts beliefs and perceptions are disrupted dismissed and destroyed—even replaced with the thoughts beliefs and perceptions of someone else..
Marie says mind control has been extensively prevalent in our past and is in use today…Our pop culture is filled with stories and images of what goes on when someone is brainwashed…War movies depict POW’s being tortured and abused by captor..starved deprived of sunlight and water for the purposes of switching their allegiances or coughing up valuable information. The term brainwashing actually comes to us from the Chinese who during the Maoist regime used coercive techniques to get individuals into “right Thinking” with the new social order. Remove old thinking and leave a clean slate to imprint whatever those in power seek to write on it. These pop culture offerings suggest we are all potential victims and if they choose to control us there is little we can do to stop it.
Films that show this are DiCaprio’s movie Inception, which suggests we can even get inside people’s dreams and steal their ideas. A short sampling of some mind control/sleeper assassin/thought programming-themed entertainment include The Matrix The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo The Bourne Identity Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Star Trek which offered us the alien Borges creating a hive mind of subservient. More recently on National television is the new series “Blind spot” about a young woman who is discovered in Times Square… tattooed all over her body, has no memory of who she is or why this was done to her and is then brought into the FBI when it is discovered she is a well trained asset and the messages on her body are clues to criminal and terrorist activity and deciphered help the authorities to save people. Obviously like the children in the real life experiments by the CIA in the early 1950’s the program hoped to product highly skilled and totally effective military assets this woman represents what can happen when a child is manipulated trained and conditioned by mind control tactics.
We are still being controlled today and As Dr. Allen Barker a mind control expert suggests The Motives for Mind Control with the rise of technology and surveillance, and the reasons include the following;
- Low intensity warfare against the domestic population using surveillance and harassment as a means to target anyone from a potential world leader to a whistleblower of an activist group.
- Stealing and mining ideas from other: spying and getting inside the minds of brilliant geniuses in other countries for their technology using covert methods of surveillance
- Interrogation for secrets: a method for wartime and terrorism but could also be used on domestic soil to find out what your competition is up to
- PSYOPS- Psychological operations used in government and military programs
- Suppression of technology: harassment, surveillance and any method by which competition can be disabled.
- Hired harassment squads for billionaires: the rich and powerful can use mind control and surveillance harassment methods to destroy competition and render their enemies useless without hiring a hit man
- To control a person such as a world leader a trained assassin..this would allow for a person groomed for a position of power to take control with a massive support system behind them
- To infiltrate a group such as installing a puppet leader in a cult or religious sect to get inside information.
- To predict and preempt actions : like the movie Minority Report where there are those who not only want to control the behavior of others but predict it which is even a more powerful method of control
We must not only examine motives for the use of mind control on a larger scale without looking at how we as mere human mortals use our own techniques on a daily basis with people in our circle of influence. Most people think of evil or sinister government torture and mind programming or a powerful or insane cult leader calling his followers to do something bad but in actually most people are trying to control change intimidate suppress or manipulate those around them and vice versa. We engage in this behavior regularly whether we admit it or not because it gets us a desired result Ask yourself “ Do you know someone who is the victim of domestic abuse or child abuse? Or someone suffering at the hands of someone with a narcissistic personality disorder? Or do you know a sociopath or psychopath and have you tried to deal with them..There are a number of mental illnesses or behavioral disorders that are perfect examples of people exercising control via emotional and/or physical harassment manipulation deception abuse and torture over another person or child. Sheryl feels Marie explains in detail the characteristics and behaviors of people experiencing borderline personality disorders and other factors that cause them to manipulate demean and demoralize unknowing victims and that by being aware of these tactics you will protect yourself and remove yourself from the clutches of such individuals. Until you read this section in Mind Wars you might not fully understand some of the challenging relationships that have left you feeling anxious fearful and depressed and may not have realized the sabotage and damaging influences of people who are trying to control you.
The links between narcissism and mind control are many. The need for utter and complete control over another is one of the diagnostic tools used by psychologists to define narcissistic personality disorder. Narcissists attempt to control other in order to enhance their own sense of power and entitlement and to preserve their own image at all costs often while devaluing others to increase their own sense of self-worth. Of course because of their belief that they are intelligent and have special skills they think they have the God given right to exploit demean and use others and because their victims start out feeling the narcissist loved them the recovery from this type of “emotional vampirism” is difficult. These are the same behaviors exacted upon the public by tyrants and dictators who will use torture abuse and even wide spread slaughter to get the results they desire. A tight rein of control over the hearts and minds is a necessity in any domineering relationship whether an abusive husband with his long suffering wife or an evil political or religious leader who believes she is the chosen one superior to others. Domestic abuse is not all that different from dictatorship abuse.
There are laws which keep us protected from mind control such as The Nuremberg Code and the Declaration of Helsinki after WW 11 was drafted and adopted by the World Medical Association. In particular the group determined the be fair procedures and outcomes in the selection of research subjects…Unfortunately this was not coded into US Law and left the door open for researchers to experiment without any protections for human subjects. When many notable experiments like the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and the hepatitis experiments from 1955 to 1970 conducted at the Willow Brook State school in Staten Island N.Y were discovered it lead to an outcry by the public.
Cults are another organized method and means of controlling people’s minds and behaviors. Cults are by definition a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous.
A cult may also be cited as;
- a particular system of religious worship especially with reference to its rites and ceremonies
- an instance of great veneration of a person ideal or thing especially as manifested by a body of admirers: the physical fitness cult….
- the object of devotion
- a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person ideal..
- sociology. A group having a sacred ideology and a set of rites centering on sacred symbols
- a religion or sect considered to be false unorthodox or extremist with members living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader
- the members of such a religion or sect.
There are different types of brain washing used by cults and agencies in changing people’s beliefs and isolating them from the mainstream for their own ulterior purposes…
One of the most subtle ways to make someone do what you want them to do uses POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT or use of praise flattery admiration attention affection gifts charm sexual desire and declarations of love to create a sense of absolute adoration in the victim..This technique is also used by narcissists and psychopaths to secure a victim by what is called,” love bombing.” When used for the benefit of the individual such as giving positive praise to a child in school or a training athlete it can build confidence and self-esteem. Positive Reinforcement is often used in cults especially in the early stages of creating a bond between the cult leaders and members. NEGATIVE REINFORCEMENT IS THE polar opposite using punishment criticism and the silent treatment to manipulate the victim into certain behavior. Negative reinforcement can include things like shaming guilting, yelling, abusive language, and even physical violence to make someone behave…In terms of human beings using violence fear and virulent language serves as a strong means by which one can degrade diminish and dominate. Negative reinforcement would certainly include at its extreme torture, and ritualistic abuse..INTERMITTENT REINFORCEMENT is more devious and effective at creating such cognitive dissonance in the victims that they cannot help but surrender control to their abuser. This technique relies on doubt fear anxiety expectation and hope and plays upon the deepest emotional needs and can even drive a victim to insanity or suicide. It works like this…First the controller abuser uses positive reinforcement and this is taken away intermittently which causes confusion and anxiety..the victim wants more of the positive reinforcement and begins to accept the negative treatment and may accept more abuse while waiting to receive any bit of the love attention. This can lead to obsession on the part of the victim and is known as traumatic bonding in the field of psychology. Covert forms of emotional manipulation serve to put the victim under a spell of sorts..until the victim is captive to this dysfunctional person bent on controlling and using them. This kind of manipulation changes the behavior of the victim and their thoughts and perceptions and removes his individual will and power over time….DO NOT THINK THAT ONLY STUPID WEAK OR DESPERATE PEOPLE BECOME VICTIMS OF THIS KIND OF MANIPULATION…THE EASIEST VICTIMS ARE EMPATHIC COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE OF ALL LEVELS OF INTELLECT. Controllers seem to know how to zero in on those who have big trusting hearts and is why children are used in mind control experiments and ritual abuse.
An example of an often targeted population after WWII were children, prisoners, and soldiers who were used for experimentation. After WWII, MKULtra and associated projects were designed by the CIA to see how far the human mind could be destroyed altered or rebuilt for the purposes of covert operations—building a better spy and soldier and breaking the enemy in new and creative ways. From giving victims LSD to the use of hypnosis to repeated sexual and physical abuse the techniques once used in Nazi Germany were used here for our own purposes after learning that the Soviets tested our POW’s with drugs during the Korean War. Dr Cameron president of the American Association in 1953 was in charge of a program to develop programs that involved using Children…One of Cameron’s victims Carol Rutz wrote an in-depth book about her own experiences as an MKUltra survivor: A Nation Betrayed: The Chilling True Story of Secret Cold War Experiments Performed on Our Children and Other Innocent People….she documents her abuse from early childhood..literally handed over to the CIA at the age of 4 by her own grandfather in 1952, followed by years of tests trainings hypnosis electroshock drugs sensory deprivation and trauma used to make her compliant and which split her personality creating multiple personalities for specific tasks..Each alter of personality was created to respond to a post hypnotic trigger …then perform an act and not remember it later…Among those acts were giving sexual favors to high ranking officials, spying, assassinations and assisting in the abuse of other victims…Her experiences were validated 48 years later with the release of over 18,000 pages of declassified document. I can only say “Sometimes the enemy we need to fear is the one that comes in the guise of a friend”…. Ruiz writes this programming turned children into warriors who could be the perfect Manchurian Candidates perfect spies and assassins ignorant of their orders, fitting into society easily and anonymously, until a code is used to awaken them and send them into action. Other Mkultra survivors tell of similar stories of ritual abuse, torture, sexual abuse and pedophilia often involving their own family members many of whom are complicit in the torture and selling their children up the river.
Secret societies and religious groups throughout history used elaborately structured ritualistic methods and behavior modification torturing techniques in order to get people to swear allegiances or confess to whatever the people in control wanted them to..torture was the tool of the Inquisitions and throughout the Middle Ages including…the coffin torture, the rack the Spanish Tickler water torture, the garrote (hanging) the wheel fire torture etc. The idea was to force a confession, control the behavior or outright kill the person. This form of mind control eliminates those who will not give up their beliefs and values or modifies them so they can join the group mindset and is the ultimate for controlling and scaring the population into submission to the ideology of the group religion or government perpetrating such inhuman behaviors. What better way to scare a society than to torture and kill those who color outside the line and resist behaviors that are unnatural for them. What better way to control someone than with fear..fear of pain of suffering of death.
Mind Control of the future might be influenced by a small elite group of people using technology to coerce control and contain….The seven methods Nicholas West offers are: Surveillance and Gadgets (Television and video games computers phones tablets 2. Mind controlled robots and drones: 3. Magnetic manipulation 4. Implants and Ingestible 5. Genetic and neuro-engineering 6. Neuroscience 7. Direct upload/hack.
There are some things science can indeed vouch for when it comes to positive mind control..Repetition creates new neural pathways to the brain…the subconscious cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined…thoughts backed by strong emotions create stronger neural pathways… Brain plasticity allows for constant change in the brain…visualizing an outcome effectively programs the brain to achieve the outcome…Positive thinking has healed people of terminal disease.
Marie tells us that the brain is the final frontier and if we wish to create heaven on earth and the best scenario for life and its participants we must use our brains wisely and lovingly…As Deepak Chopra renowned Indian American physician and author of numerous bestselling books about quantum physics healing intention and spirituality wrote in 5 Steps to Harness the Power of Intention.. “ The classic Vedic text declares Your are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is so is your intention. As your intention is so is your will. As your will is so is your deed. As your deed is so is your destiny.” The truth is we are everything we think about all our lives, an accumulation of our thoughts and intentions and make damn sure they are in alignment with who we are and want to be and not what some external person place or thing tells us we should be… So resist those who would limit your possibilities for your best life and seek out that which enhances your true nature and capacity to love..”
It becomes clear once again that our most precious gift our own thoughts and soul essence need to reestablish a connection to the past and also to the present moment in order to reclaim our destiny to be ever expanding entities of love and compassion and we can only do this by becoming aware of the many belief systems and factors in our society that may alter this ability to learn and discern what is our destiny and birthright…to be creative souls who are here to gather experiences and insights into the world of energy and physical realities for refining our thinking and remembering our true nature: to live in peace harmony and balance, with ourselves, our fellow citizens, the world and Universe always respecting the destiny and journey of each human being. Marie wrote…”But what it comes down to is this… The mind is a receptacle as well as a transmitter. It receives as well as broadcasts. Controlling what we allow our minds to receive as well as broadcast keeps out a good deal of information and influence that others around us from individual to entities like the government and corporations would love to instead fill our minds with…the basis of the positive thinking movement really comes down to putting better data into the data bank, depositing good energy into the energy bank and filling the mind with higher thoughts rather than those that depress, create anxiety, fear, and doubt or diminish our strength physical and emotion….
Marie and I ask you to allow your being to be open to more light energy and happiness and to influence your health and that of the world with good will happiness and the success that an open and loving mind and heart invites us to encourage…Protect and encourage the best into your mind and share that with others..that is the way to improve life and discourage sabotage or influences by those who might try to undermine the best in us.
