Just to clarify about the Magick comment, its just some other websites seem to paint James Ray as some type of dark-magician who has some type of mystical power over people.
They ascribe some type of mystical significance to what he does.
In fact, James Ray is really a 3rd-rate covert persuader, who went berserk due to his insane greed, which seems to stem from his outrageous meglomania.
James Ray literally just copied many people's methods, like Tony Robbins. Tony Robbins was talking about Kava Kava long ago, and he built some stories around the Kava Kava, so James Ray just copied that. They could easily dose the Kava Kava with something, someone should have taken a sample of it, and had it analyzed.
But the Kava Kava becomes a metaphor, or a hook, and they hang all sorts of suggestions and stories around it, involving tribal trance rites, and whatever else they can pull out of their ass.
And the James Ray company answers the phone with the word OUTSTANDING, which was also copied from Tony Robbins. So he just copies other people's methods, and then makes them worse.
One other person asked what the significance of people staring into their own hands was. In fact, there is no significance in it at all. If anything, its there to bore people, and to take them further into a trance state.
To make trance deeper, you take people into trance, then out of it, then back in, many times. That is what James Ray is trying to do.
When people get into Deep Trance, then James Ray starts injecting JAMES RAY into the core of people's psyches. James Ray starts to literally PLAY GOD when people are that open and suggestible, and that gets implanted in their minds, the image of James Ray as God.
Then later, those people will do what he tells them to do, buy what he tells them to buy, and lie for him. Perhaps even take the fall for him.
The sexual manipulation of James Ray has not been touched on, but clearly he is sexually manipulating people as well, as seen with some of what is being reported, and with the people who he surrounds himself with.
It is looking like James Ray was going berserk with the power he was getting over people, and wanted to push people past the edge. Like a Stanford prison experiment [www.prisonexp.org
] or a Milgram experiment [en.wikipedia.org
] but it was not an experiment, it was for real.
Hopefully all of these James Ray staffers who have been covering things up will be held accountable.
