Before I did the forum, I asked questions of my recruiter and her partner. As is usual with L.E. recruiters, they were vague.
They would tell me that it would not change the things that happened in life, but would help me to not be so upset over them. I was still not convinced that it was worth my time. Her partner then told me, "It rewires your brain." I recall thinking that she was talking about a new way of thinking, not an actual, physical change in brain circuitry.
From what I have recently read about the effects of damage to the amygdala, I am now rethinking that. It amazes me how much the behaviour patterns of people in LGATS resemble this type of damage:
LGATS are aware of what they are doing. In the last seminar I attended at L.E., the seminar leader stated that the next seminar in the series would involve "brain science," and then spoke about amygdala hijack. She actually acknowledged amygdala hijacking, that time, but, from what I saw, they do it all the time.
What kind of a "friend" takes it upon themself to decide that you need your brain "rewired"? Before any doctor would undertake to manipulate someone's brain or nervous system, they would explain the procedure, including all possible complications or side-effects, and then obtain signed, informed consent. To do otherwise would cause them the loss of their license, and even possible jail time. These people do none of this. Informed patiens ask questions, but answers at LGATS sign-ups are vague.
What kind of a "friend" wants to wipe out your personality to be written over? They never disclose the real price of how it will cost you yourself. They never mention any physical or neurological changes, but PTSD has been shown to alter neural pathways, and I strongly suspect that this does, too. L.E. consent forms disclose rare psychotic episodes, but never this.
I have lost so much of my personality. I feel mostly numb and emotionless. Like a dead thing.
What these people do is grotesque beyond words.
The person trying to recruit you may have, at one time, been your friend, but they have been altered. You had best cut your losses. Mourn them, if you must, but RUN!!!
