Its interesting how James Ray is apparently claiming he doesn't have enough money for the bail conditions?
One thing about these LGAT gurus, they are world-class experts at using OPM. Other Peoples Money. That is one of the first lessons they learn in LGAT Guru con-man school.
So when James Ray is openly crying he is out of money, that is probably a message to his inner circle. All of these LGAT Gurus have "Inner Circles" which they cultivate and fill with people who have access to money, Dave Lakhani even explains how to create an Inner Circle for your cult following. [forum.culteducation.com
A recent example is Keith Raniere of NXIVM who spent $100 million dollars of other people’s money OPM, from Sara and Clare Bronfman of the Bronfman/Seagram fortune [www.cultnews.com
Every LGAT Guru has targeted and has exclusive clubs and meeting groups for their inner circle people, who are willing and able to spend a FORTUNE just to be able to meet the blessed Guru a few times a year. That is a huge source of income for the LGAT Guru, they all do it from day one, target wealthy and suggestible and vulnerable clients for "special treatment".
So the James Ray World Wealth Summit, and those various groups are going to be targeted. There is a very good chance quite a few members of these inner circle groups are going to continue to be Believers in James Ray until the bitter end, as the indoctrination is very deep and powerful. As can be seen in other sects, even when the sect leader goes to jail, their belief in their Christlike persecuted Guru gets more intense.
So the true believers in the James Ray Inner Circle groups, are going to be financially milked dry.
LGAT Gurus are not stupid, they all know how to stash money in various places, unless of course they are spending it all on their lifestyle. But its very common for various cash donations to be stashed for safe keeping, that is another rule of being a LGAT guru conman, STASH some LOOT!
But for the James Ray inner circle true believers with access to money, they are going to be targeted again, and milked dry. There might be a few James Ray followers who are also heirs to fortunes with access to millions, like Keith Raniere of NXIVM who spent $100 million dollars of OPM other people’s money, from one family.
And there are also smaller inner circle members, who might own their own business and will mortgage their homes and empty their accounts to "save the guru" and cover his expenses during the trials.
On top of this, the Guru goes BANKRUPT and so the slate get wiped.
(that is why the smart LGAT Guru conman always has a serious stash of cash offshore, in safe boxes, and even buried).
And when inner circle members like Kristina Bivins and others put themselves on the record defending James Arthur Ray, aren't they also putting themselves in the middle of it? The board of a company like MuseGlobal.com might not appreciate their CEO & President dragging the company name into a criminal case?
Did Kristina Bivins who is listed as CEO/President of MuseGlobal Inc, ever hire JRI James Ray International to do seminars or coachings for MuseGlobal?

Some have speculated that James Ray might attempt suicide? That is not going to happen, how many LGAT Gurus have ever committed suicide when caught and charged? Can't think of one. They either flee the country like a Werner Erhard, or they fight it out for years, and try to get off on a technicality. Or they plead down, and serve a bit of time, then get out and start everything back up again using a different company name.
If anything, the LGAT Guru conman when busted, perceive themselves as the VICTIMS of the system, like most criminals.
But James Ray, if convicted, is probably finished. Even if he gets out, who is going to insure and allow his LGAT seminars and LGAT style wilderness seminars on their property and run that risk?
But its a bad mistake to count these guys out, even when they appear to be down.
The James Ray inner circle is going to be milked dry for years.
And as stated, any self-respecting crooked LGAT Guru conman, is going to have a serious stash of cash hidden in various places, that was meant for "retirement" and living on a boat offshore somewhere.
Those are 2 lessons you learn from day one in the Guru conman school of hard knocks.
1) use OPM Other Peoples Money.
2) Stash loot where it cannot be traced.
