Woman with 2500 different personalities brings her abusive father to justice
Her childhood was so traumatic she developed 2500 different personalities to deal with the horrific abuse she suffered. Now Jeni Haynes has found justice. news.com.au May 27, 2019
A woman with 2500 different personalities has brought her abuser to justice after taking the stand using the voice of six of her “alters”.
Jeni Haynes, 49, developed multiple personality disorder, also known as dissociative identity disorder, after being subjected to sickening sexual abuse by her father Richard Haynes from the age of four.
“My dad inflicted, chose to inflict, severe, sadistic, violent abuse. That was completely unavoidable. Inescapable. And life-threatening. And he chose to do this every day of my entire childhood,” Ms Haynes told 60 Minutes.
The abuse was so bad it left her with serious injuries and she’s had to endure major surgeries to repair her bowel, coccyx and anus.
Ms Haynes coped by developing many different personalities.
Psychiatrist Dr George Blair-West explains that multiple personality disorder can be a sophisticated tactic developed by children who experience significant trauma prior to the age of eight.
“And the thing that seems to push the mind to do this more than anything else is realising you have no way out, that nobody is going to come and get you, nobody’s there to save you, you’re on your own, and you have to come up with a solution that is entirely of your own,” he said….
Footage aired on 60 Minutes shows Jeni Haynes speaking with the voice of some of her different alters, which can include a four-year-old girl named “Symphony”, a 11-year-old boy “Judas” and a rugged and strong teenage boy “Muscles”.
Dr Blair-West has been treating Jeni for over 20 years and said if a functional EEG was being done on Ms Haynes “you’d see different brainwaves” when she changes between personalities as well as differences in her voice….
On February 21, Ms Haynes appeared before the NSW District Court to face her 74-year-old father. Authorities had to extradite him from the United Kingdom before charging him with multiple counts of rape, buggery and indecent assault.
After being faced with the testimony of Ms Haynes’s many different personalities, her father crumbled and plead guilty within hours of her taking the stand.
Although Ms Haynes is able to remain anonymous, she has chosen not to because this would also have protected her father’s identity.
“I want him to walk into prison with everybody knowing what he did,” she said.
Next week Ms Haynes’s father will be sentenced and she is finally looking forward to leaving the past behind….
Woman with multiple personalities to read impact statement in different ‘alters’
By Tim Barlass May 31, 2019
A woman who developed multiple personality disorder after being sexually abused by her father, is to read out her 17-page victim-impact statement on Friday in court using the voices of several of the different “alter” characters.
Jeni Haynes wants her father, Richard Haynes, who is in the dock, to hear directly from them about the impact of what he did to her between the ages of four and 11.
The relentless assaults resulted in her assuming some 2500 or so “alters” in what is now called dissociative identity disorder.
“Alters” expected to speak could include Symphony, a four-year-old girl; Judas, an 11-year-old boy; Muscles, an 18-year-old motorcycle-loving lout; and Linda, who was cheated out of a political career….
Haynes, who was extradited from Britain in February 2017, decided at the last minute to plead guilty to the charges of rape, buggery and indecent assault against his daughter in Sydney in the 1970s and 1980s….
“My dad forced me to develop multiple personalities as the only way I could cope with his abuse. Dad’s abuse was extreme, violent, sadistic, unescapable, unavoidable, constant and life-threatening, not to mention overwhelming.
“Jeni would not have survived the abuse and the day-to-day consequences of the abuse without Symphony and her highly creative strategy. But Symphony is deeply traumatised, hurt, damaged and devastated as a result. As are all the other alter personalities who have done their jobs so well and kept Jeni alive. Without MPD I would be dead. This may sound melodramatic, but it is quite simply the truth.”
She states the abuse destroyed her childhood, ruined her educational prospects and devastated her employability with immense economic cost as she was forced to live on a government benefit….
Dissociative Identity Disorder
Dissociative identity disorder (formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder or MPD) is defined in the DSM-IV-TR as the presence of two or more personality states or distinct identities that repeatedly take control of one’s behavior. The patient has an inability to recall personal information. The extent of this lack of recall is too great to be explained by normal forgetfulness. The disorder cannot be due to the direct physical effects of a general medical condition or substance.
DID entails a failure to integrate certain aspects of memory, consciousness and identity. Patients experience frequent gaps in their memory for their personal history, past and present. Patients with DID report having severe physical and sexual abuse, especially during childhood. The reports of patients with DID are often validated by objective evidence.
Physical evidence may include variations in physiological functions in different identity states, including differences in vision, levels of pain tolerance, symptoms of asthma, the response of blood glucose to insulin and sensitivity to allergens. Other physical findings may include scars from physical abuse or self-inflicted injuries, headaches or migraines, asthma and irritable bowel syndrome.
DID is found in a variety of cultures around the world. It is diagnosed three to nine times more often in adult females than males. Females average 15 or more identities, males eight identities. The sharp rise in the reported cases of DID in the U.S. may be due the greater awareness of DID’s diagnosis, which has caused an increased identification of those that were previously undiagnosed.…
The causes of dissociative identity disorder are theoretically linked with the interaction of overwhelming stress, traumatic antecedents, insufficient childhood nurturing, and an innate ability to dissociate memories or experiences from consciousness.
Prolonged child abuse is frequently a factor, with a very high percentage of patients reporting documented abuse often confirmed by objective evidence. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders states that patients with DID often report having a history of severe physical and sexual abuse. The reports of patients suffering from DID are “often confirmed by objective evidence,” and the DSM notes that the abusers in those situations may be inclined to “deny or distort” these acts.
Research has consistently shown that DID is characterized by reports of extensive childhood trauma, usually child abuse. Dissociation is recognized as a symptomatic presentation in response to psychological trauma, extreme emotional stress, and in association with emotional dysregulation and borderline personality disorder.
A study of 12 murderers established the connection between early severe abuse and DID. A recent psychobiological study shows that dissociative identity disorder (DID) sufferers’ “origins of their ailment stem more likely from trauma” than sociogenic or iatrogenic origins…

The Most Harrowing Testimonies From NXIVM ‘Sex Slaves’
By Amanda Arnold May 30, 2019
In March 2018, NXIVM founder Keith Raniere was arrested and charged with sex trafficking. Months earlier, several news outlets had published shocking reports detailing the inner workings of the purported “self-help” organization he founded, which prosecutors say was a front for a sex cult.
In October 2017, the New York Times ran a lengthy story alleging that the group had branded some female members, referred to as “sex slaves,” with Raniere’s initials. In the year-plus since Raniere’s arrest, the image of the organization has only grown increasingly disturbing: Various women who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from their involvement in NXIVM have admitted to everything from recruiting women into the alleged cult to blackmailing them with damaging photographs and letters.
Today Raniere is finally standing trial. Since the proceedings against NXIVM began in mid-March, several women involved in its DOS subgroup have taken the stand. The group was allegedly a hierarchical network of “masters” and “slaves” with Raniere at the top. According to the women’s testimonies, he had eight “first-line” slaves who reported to him, and each of these eight women had their own slaves….
Below, here’s what we’ve learned about the secretive sorority since the start of Raniere’s trial in early May.
Slaves allegedly had to wear dog collars and make “life commitments” to their master….
Women say they were subjected to whippings, cold showers, and other forms of sexual torture…..
Raniere allegedly told his slaves to get abortions after he impregnated them….

Deception by Organized Abuser Groups: Helping Your Front People and Your Insiders Recognize the Lies and Tricks Which Keep You Enslaved by Alison Miller
If you are a survivor of abuse by a mind-controlling abuser group, you have parts who have been trained to obey abusers because they believe lies your abusers told you. The abusers deceived you in childhood, using drugs, acted-out scenarios, stage magic, stories and films to control your child parts and prevent you from speaking out about the abuse. Their power over you depends on your young parts believing the abusers’ lies. If you learn to recognize when your emotions and behavior are influenced by these deceptions, and to discover the ways in which you were deceived, you can increase your freedom from the abuser group. (Skype presention)
Alison Miller, Ph.D. is a retired clinical psychologist who practised in Victoria, B.C., Canada and worked with survivors of organized abuse, including ritual abuse and mind control from 1990 to 2017. She has twice chaired the RAMCOA (ritual abuse/mind control/organized abuse) special interest group of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. She is the author of Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control (for therapists), Becoming Yourself: Overcoming Mind Control and Ritual Abuse (for survivors), and co-author with survivor Wendy Hoffman of From the Trenches: A Victim and Therapist Talk about Mind Control and Ritual Abuse. She has published several other book chapters and articles, as well as being the originator of the LIFE Seminars parent education programs.
A Survivor’s View of Recovery from Ritual Abuse by Neil Brick
Recovery from ritual abuse can take many years. Recovery may include working through memories, building functionality and developing more effective ways of interacting and integrating emotions. Every individual has different experiences that lead them through the recovery path. Neil Brick will discuss his long journey healing from severe abuse. This will include ways he has learned more about himself, ways he has learned to develop healthier interactions with others and ways he has helped others along the recovery path.
Neil Brick is a survivor of ritual abuse and mind control. His work continues to educate the public about child abuse, trauma and ritual abuse crimes. His child abuse and ritual abuse newsletter S.M.A.R.T.https://ritualabuse.us has been published for over 23 years.http://neilbrick.com
Part One: Daniel Roemer will share his own story using PowerPoint, visuals and clips from his docudrama “Gray”, which digs deep into uncovering his abuse history, actual news articles from the time of the abuse, and includes interviews with prominent locals and family members, and his personal search for what went on.
Part Two: Daniel Roemer will conduct a film-making 101 class (designed for self-taping and interviewing others) – to share the story, both technical and directorial how-to’s. Clinicians would also benefit in having these skills to share their methods of work.
Everyone has a unique story, whether you are a clinician, a survivor or both. Stories, since the beginning of time, united tribes and cultures and passed along their ideals by framing LIFE as a narrative. Stories helped the listener to feel less alone in the world, feel inspired, and helped them to become all the wiser on their own journey.
Daniel Roemer’s unique and powerful style of directing has lead him to receive such attention as USA Film’s Top 10 Emerging Director’s list at the age of 20, two-time Project Greenlight Best Director Finalist (Ben Affleck/Matt Damon), and student Academy Award State finalist by age 22.
He’s screened in festivals including Sundance, AFI Fest, LA Shorts Fest, and a special senator screening in Washington DC (for selected congressmen). Daniel was also among the few who finalized for the LA Shorts Fest “DNA Award,” the festival’s top honor of a million dollar feature deal with Universal Pictures (500 contestants).
Recently Daniel was a top 50 Director Finalist (of 10,000 entrants) for Fox’s reality show “On the Lot”, produced by Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett, showcasing filmmakers “bound for stardom”. His shooting and editing have aired on Good Morning America, Dr. Phil and Arsenio Hall’s TV series “The World’s Funniest Moments”. His behind the scenes work includes Sony Picture’s exclusive (I Love Your Work) starring Giovanni Ribisi, Jason Lee, Vince Vaughn, Christina Ricci and Elvis Costello.
His nonprofit work includes interviews and promos with John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Meryl Streep, Olivia Newton-John, John Ritter, Pierce Brosnan and Selma Blair, as well as an extensive interview with Ben Stiller for The Huckleberry Fund (nonprofit for Homeless Children). Editing credits include 15-week TV series “Beyond the Felt,” showcasing world’s top poker players, A&E reality TV show “Dumpster Diving,” feature-length documentary on Breast Cancer, starring Christina Applegate, Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow (distrib. Lionsgate).
He’s filmed and edited for A&E E!, ET, Access Hollywood, TV News, and screened at national conventions for 20th Century Fox Producer, Ralph Winter (X-Men 1&2, X-Men: The Last Stand, Fantastic 4). Most recently Daniel directed a TV pilot for CW Network (Atlanta) and is in post production, as well as finishing his feature-length documentary “Red White and Blowhard” shot across the US 2012-2013.https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1281008/

“The Greenbaum Speech”
Okay. I want to start off by talking a little about trance-training and the use of hypnotic phenomena with an MPD dissociative-disorder population, to talk some about unconscious exploration, methods of doing that, the use of imagery and symbolic imagery techniques for managing physical symptoms, input overload, things like that. Before the day’s out, I want to spend some time talking about something I think has been completely neglected in the field of dissociative disorders, and that’s talking about methods of profound calming for automatic hyper-arousal that’s been conditioned in these patients.
We’re going to spend a considerable length of time talking about age-regression and abreaction in working through a trauma. I’ll show you with a non-MPD patient—some of that kind of work—and then extrapolate from what I find so similar and different with MPD cases. Part of that, I would add by the way, is that I’ve been very sensitive through the years about taping MPD cases or ritual-abuse cases, part of it being that some of that feels a little like using patients and I think that this population has been used enough. That’s part of the reason, by choice, that I don’t generally videotape my work. I also want to talk a bunch about hypnotic relapse-prevention strategies and post-integration therapy today….
What I came out of that with was a grasp of a variety of brainwashing methods being used all over the country. I started to hear some similarities. Whereas I hadn’t known, to begin with, how widespread these things were, I was now getting a feeling that there were a lot of people reporting some similar things and that there must be some degree of communication here.
Then approximately two and a half years ago I had some material drop in my lap. My source was saying a lot of things that I knew were accurate about some of the brainwashing, but it was telling me new material I had no idea about. At this point I took note and decided to check it out in three ritual-abuse patients I was seeing at the time. Two of the three had what they were describing, in careful inquiry without leading or contaminating….
Here’s where it appears to have come from. At the end of World War II, before it even ended, Allen Dulles and people from our Intelligence Community were already in Switzerland making contact to get out Nazi scientists. As World War II ends, they not only get out rocket scientists, but they also get out some Nazi doctors who have been doing mind-control research in the camps.
….They started doing mind-control research for Military Intelligence in military hospitals in the United States. The people that came, the Nazi doctors, were Satanists. Subsequently, the boy changed his name, Americanized it some, obtained an M.D. degree, became a physician and continued this work that appears to be at the center of Cult Programming today. His name is known to patients throughout the country. [Pause]
What they basically do is they will get a child and they will start this in basic forms, it appears, by about two and a half after the child’s already been made dissociative. They’ll make him dissociative not only through abuse, like sexual abuse, but also things like putting a mousetrap on their fingers and teaching the parents, “You do not go in until the child stops crying. Only then do you go in and remove it.” They start in rudimentary forms at about two and a half and kick into high gear, it appears, around six or six and a half, continue through adolescence with periodic reinforcements in adulthood.
Basically, in the programming the child will be put typically on a gurney. They will have an I.V. in one hand or arm. They’ll be strapped down, typically naked. There’ll be wires attached to their head to monitor electroencephalograph patterns. They will see a pulsing light, most often described as red, occasionally white or blue. They’ll be given, most commonly I believe, Demerol. Sometimes it’ll be other drugs as well, depending on the kind of programming. They have it, I think, down to a science where they’ve learned you give so much every twenty-five minutes until the programming is done.
They then will describe a pain on one ear, their right ear generally, where it appears a needle has been placed, and they will hear weird, disorienting sounds in that ear while they see photic stimulation to drive the brain into a brain wave pattern with a pulsing light at a certain frequency, not unlike the goggles that are now available through Sharper Image and some of those kinds of stores. Then, after a suitable period when they’re in a certain brain wave state, they will begin programming, programming oriented to self-destruction and debasement of the person. In a patient at this point in time, about eight years old, who has gone through a great deal of early programming that took place on a military installation, that’s not uncommon. I’ve treated and been involved with cases who are part of this original mind-control project, as well as having their programming on military reservations in many cases. We find a lot of connections with the CIA…..
Now let me give you, because we don’t have a lot of time, as much practical information as I can. The way that I would inquire as to whether or not some of this might be there would be with ideomotor finger-signals. After you’ve set them up I would say, “I want the central inner core of you to take control of the finger-signals.” Don’t ask the unconscious mind. The case where you’re inquiring about ritual abuse, that’s for the central inner core. The core is a Cult-created part. “And I want that central inner core of you to take control of this hand, of these finger-signals and what it has to do for the yes-finger to float up. I want to ask the inner core of you is there any part of you, any part of Mary,” that’s the host’s name, “who knows anything about Alpha, Beta, Delta, or Theta?” If you get a Yes, it should raise a red flag that you might have someone with formal intensive brainwashing and programming in place.
I would then ask and say, “I want a part inside who knows something about Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Theta to come up to a level where you can speak to me and when you’re here say, ‘I’m here.'” I would not ask if a part was willing to. No one’s going to particularly want to talk about this. I would just say, “I want some part who can tell me about this to come out.” Without leading them ask them what these things are. I’ve had consults where I’ve come in. Sometimes I’ve gotten a Yes to that, but as I’ve done exploration it appeared to be some kind of compliance response or somebody wanting, in two or three cases, to appear maybe that they were ritual abuse and maybe they were in some way, but with careful inquiry and looking it was obvious that they did not have what we were looking for.
Let me tell you what these are. Let’s suppose that this whole front row here are multiples and that she has an alter named Helen and she has one named Mary, she has one named Gertrude, she has one named Elizabeth, and she has one named Monica. Every one of those alters may have put on it a program, perhaps designated alpha-zero-zero-nine, a Cult person could say, “Alpha-zero-zero-nine” or make some kind of hand gesture to indicate this and get the same part out in any one of them even though they had different names that they may be known by to you. Alphas appear to represent general programming, the first kind of things put in. Betas appear to be sexual programs. For example, how to perform oral sex in a certain way, how to perform sex in rituals, having to do with producing child pornography, directing child pornography, or prostitution. Deltas are killers trained in how to kill in ceremonies. There’ll also be some self-harm stuff mixed in with that, assassination and killing. Thetas are called psychic killers….
The way you create Manchurian Candidates is you divide the mind. It’s part of what the Intelligence Community wanted to look at. If you’re going to get an assassin, you’re going to get somebody to go do something, you divide the mind. It fascinates me about cases like the assassination of Robert Kennedy, where Bernard Diamond, on examining Sirhan Sirhan found that he had total amnesia of the killing of Robert Kennedy, but under hypnosis could remember it. But despite suggestions he would be able to consciously remember, could not remember a thing after was out of hypnosis. I’d love to examine Sirhan Sirhan.
It appears that below this we’ve got some other layers. One is called “Green Programming” it appears. Isn’t it interesting that the doctor’s name is Dr. Green? One of the questions, in a way that does not contaminate, is after I’ve identified some of this stuff is there and they’ve given me a few right answers about what some of it is, “If there was a doctor associated with this programming and his name was a color, you know, like Dr. Chartreuse or something, if his name was a color, what color would the color be?” Now once in a while I’ve had some other colors mentioned, in about three or four patients that I felt were trying to dissimulate in some way and I don’t really believe had this. In one case I got another color and I found out later it was a doctor whose name was a color who was being trained by Dr. Green, almost thirty years ago, and he supervised part of the programming of this woman under this doctor….
The way they did this was they strapped her down and they gave her LSD when she was eight years old. When she began hallucinating they inquired about the nature of the hallucinations, so they could utilize them in good Ericksonian fashion, and build on them and then combine the drug-effect with powerful suggestions. “If you ever get to this point you will go crazy. If you ever get fully integrated and get well you will go crazy like this, and will be locked up in an institution for the rest of your life.” They gave those suggestions vigorously and repetitively. Finally they introduced other suggestions that, “Rather than have this happen, it would be easier to just kill yourself.” In a bloodline patient then, as I began inquiring about deep material, the patient started to experience similar symptoms. We went back and we found the identical things were done to her.
This was called the “Green Bomb.” B-O-M-B. Lots of interesting internal consistencies like that, play on words with Dr. Greenbaum, his original name. Now in this case it was done to her at age nine for the first time, and then only hers was different. Hers was a suggestion for amnesia. “If you ever remember anything about Ultra-Green and the Green Tree you will go crazy. You will become a vegetable and be locked up forever.” Then finally the suggestions added, “And it’ll be easier to just kill yourself than have that happen to you, if you ever remember it.” At age twelve then, three years later, they used what sounds like an Amytal interview to try to breach the amnesia and find out if they could. They couldn’t. So then they strapped her down again, took and gave her something to kind of paralyze her body, gave her LSD, an even bigger dose and reinforced all the suggestions. Did a similar thing at the age of sixteen. So these are some of the kind of booby traps you run into. There are a number of cases where they combined powerful drug effects like this with suggestions, to keep us from discovering some of this deeper level stuff…..
In some of the patients I’m working with we have pretty much dealt with a lot of the top-level stuff. I’ll tell you how we’ve done some of that. We’ll take and erase one system like Omega. Then we will have a huge abreaction of all the memories and feelings in a fractionated abreaction associated with those parts. I typically find I’ll say to them, “Now that we’ve done this, are there any other memories and feelings that any parts that were Omega still have?” The answer’s usually “No.” At that point I will say, “I usually find at this point in time the majority, if not all, of those parts that used to be Omega no longer feel a desire or need to be different, realizing that you split off originally by them and want to go home to Mary and become one with her again.” I use the concept often now—which came from a patient—of going home and becoming one with her. “Going back from whence you came” is another phrase I’ll use with them. “Are there any Omega parts inside who do not feel comfortable with that or have reservations or concerns about that?” If there are we talk to them. We deal with them. A few may not integrate. My experience is most of the time they’ll integrate and we may integrate twenty-five parts at once in a polyfragmented complex MPD…..
Secret Weapons – Two Sisters’ Terrifying True Story of Sex, Spies and Sabotage by Cheryl and Lynn Hersha with Dale Griffis, Ph D. and Ted Schwartz. New Horizon Press ISBN 0-88282-196-2 Is a well-documented, verifiable account of not one, but two childrens’ long untold stories of being CHILD subjects of Project MKUltra. Quotes from the book: “By the time Cheryl Hersha came to the facility, knowledge of multiple personality was so complete that doctors understood how the mind separated into distinct ego states,each unaware of the other. First, the person traumatized had to be both extremely intelligent and under the age of seven, two conditions not yet understood though remaining consistent as factors. The trauma was almost always of a sexual nature…” p. 52 “The government researchers,aware of the information in the professional journals, decided to reverse the process (of healing from hysteric dissociation). They decided to use selective trauma on healthy children to create personalities capable of committing acts desired for national security and defense.” p. 53 – 54

Valerie Wolf Interview
CKLN FM 88.1
Ryerson Polytechnic University
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I am a clinical social worker, and I started working with survivors of trauma and sex abuse in 1973 when I was a student at Syracuse University and basically specialized in it … it gradually became a specialty. I worked at Family Services of Greater New Orleans and became the contact manager for all the child abuse contacts in 1984, and helped set up a whole sex abuse treatment program, got funding from the state, and then when I left there, I worked for a for-profit hospital and set up an in-patient program and picked up more clients. In June 1992, I was at the Eastern Regional Conference in Alexandria, Virginia where the information on the mind control was released. Basically, I didn’t get to the talk, but a colleague of mine did and she had referred a client to me.
When she heard this talk she immediately found me and said, “I think this mutual client is a victim of the mind control they are talking about.” I had a couple of clients who had really worked in therapy, they were doing a lot … but all they could do was maintain … even then they were in and out of the hospital. They became flooded with thoughts of wanting to hurt themselves, or wanting to kill themselves, and had to be hospitalized in spite of everything. I had two clients who started going downhill, and I decided to follow what I had learned from that conference audiotape and lo and behold, both clients ended up being victims of mind control….
Well basically, the way I have come to understand DID or fuzzy DID … basically what you have is a part that is the core birth personality — the original personality born into the body, not a baby as was commonly thought and it would make sense that it is not a baby. What happens is, a child which develops the way I would say these people have under the age of five to seven, probably under the age of five — you have a very small child, and the easiest way I can explain it is that there is abuse in the family so what happens is, “this person who is abusing me, I also have to love them.”
Little kids, under the age of five, can’t handle ambivalence really well so what they will do is actually create a part that has the ability to take the hurt, and be hurt, and they will create a part that says “I love you” whoever it is that … so they can hold these two mutually incompatible thoughts and feelings at the same time. There has to be amnesia between them, because the part that is being hurt would be too confused by having to love this person who is hurting them and the part that has to love would be confused being hurt, so there has to be an amnesia barrier there. And that’s the purpose. As time goes on, and there is more abuse, and it is prolonged, a child naturally creates more and more personalities and all of the personalities have a job … they are created for a purpose … it’s either to hold memories, or feelings because in an abusive family or situation kids are not allowed to have feelings … if they cry they get hurt; if they get angry they get hurt; so they have to create parts to hold the feelings. If you are being hurt at home, you have to create parts that will go to school and function that will deal with the outside world, and the core birth personality therefore is always protected and allowed to grow up fairly normally. Now what will happen is, you will be presented with somebody who looks kind of flat, who doesn’t have a lot of feeling, who seems kind of pale and passive … the reason is that all of the things that make for character have been split among the parts. So when she needs anger, she switches or blends, with a part. That’s how all of that develops. For some kids, it all depends on what state they don’t develop fully … for kids who have been really severely abused at a very young age going into this, I think their personalities are more well defined. I don’t know what the difference is … as to why some people are full-blown DID and others are less … and I hate to say less well developed, because they function very well. I think they do what they need … they go to the degree that they need to survive.
So at the time the blending takes on between the core person and an alter, does the person have access to the memories and experiences of both identities at that point … what happens at that blending?
The blending point … when a part blends with the core birth personality, if they have a job to do, they will just do that job … and the memories don’t link … although that part is acting on memories or acting on things they were told they needed to do in order to protect the core birth personality. But as far as giving memories, the parts know where the core birth personality is at all times, and understand their primary function is to protect the core birth personality so they will only give their memories when the core birth personality is ready for them. The thing with the amnesia barriers, going back to your question, the core birth personality is protected from all this information and knowledge by amnesia barriers … may not even know she or he has parts … the amnesia is to that degree and that’s a protection. By the same token, the parts inside know that the core birth personality is there….
What you have with the mind control is a systematic way of trying to structure someone’s mind so that people could have total control over them. That is what we are dealing with here. They were dealing with very young children, as young as 2 or 3 when this started, some were older, but they found that from 2 1/1 to 3 1/2 (from what I understand) was the best age to start because their minds were much moldable at that point. They created what survivors call The Matrix inside their head and it can take on a lot of variations and forms — the most common one is — survivors talk about it as being like a Rubik’s cube — and they started with a simple 9×9 tic-tac-toe matrix and each little square was a cell or room, and every time an alter came out or was created through the pain, they would condition that alter to respond to a certain word, letter or whatever and then they would have to go into their place in the matrix and that cell had that number or whatever … and they kept track of all of this … so that if you needed a part for a specific job, and they knew what they all were because they either gave the jobs or if the child spontaneously created a job because they knew what they all were … they would just call out that number designation, and get that alter or that group of alters that would suit their purpose at the time.
In the course of treatment, where I start is with safe place imagery — the core birth personality creates a safe place. There is a protocol for doing that, but most of the time they already have it. This is good trauma treatment … I do this with every single client who reports any kind of abuse — that’s where I start. And mind control victims are no different than that … The task is to work through the matrix … once a part’s job is over they can either integrate or go to the safe place. They don’t have to stay in there. Once we get the information or they understand … also that the number refers to the cell, not to them, that’s not their name … and when they realize that (because they think it is their name but it’s not, because they often have other names) … once they realize they don’t have to stay in there any more, they end up going to the safe place where they directly integrate. And a lot of times when they go into the safe place, they will go there, rest a while, and then they will integrate. Your task is to clear out all the parts in the matrix … and all these parts were harmed in the mind control experiments. The other thing is they were told to stay in their cells, they couldn’t talk to anybody, they couldn’t talk to the core birth personality, they had to stay isolated. These kids were as busy undoing it as it was done … a lot of them, probably most whether they admit it or not, then created halls and tunnels, caves or rooms behind the matrix. They learned that they could create this matrix, so why couldn’t they create something else. So a lot of times when I hear an image of a cave, a tunnel, a hall, or whatever … I will ask “is that yours, did you create that, or did they?” If the kid created it, then we know it is a defensive thing, it is useful and it is there for purpose. If they did, then we know it’s something we either have to bypass or deal with to get rid of. We use that series of tunnels or whatever in the back of the matrix … it is like a maze … and that’s how I visualize it … we are working through the maze to get all the kids out of the matrix and once the matrix is empty, you can blow it up, it isn’t needed any more, and then there is always more after that … there is more than one … and I am not going to say how many because I am not going to be suggestive … but there is more than one part to it so you just keep clearing out until you get to the end of those and then there are other memories that come and then you are done….
I would like to talk about how prevalent are memories of ritual abuse and child sexual abuse in the clients that have undergone mind control experimentation …
They all report sexual, physical and emotional abuse and the systematic — the words are kind of the same in terms of the messages they are given about themselves — they are “worthless” “will never be a success” — really downing yourself, really taking away their control. I have clients with no memories of ritual abuse. I have clients with memories of ritual abuse that is clinical and laboratory based. I think ritual abuse is basically, most of the time, sex rings that get together and use costumes to terrify kids and keep them under control. Satan is a good image because of religion. Here they use mardi gras costumes (in New Orleans) — clients have talked about that. Basically they are groups of pedophiles engaged in child prostitution and sometimes you will hear about child pornography. Some of it is organized crime involved with child pornography and child prostitution, and some of it is groups of pedophiles, men and women, who get together and do whatever they want with kids and I thi nk the satanic imagery heightens the excitement for them. I think there may be true satanic cults but I think the thing that has always been missing for me is how it shows up in your daily life. If you are a practicising satanist, I think it is something that I think would show up in your daily life or show up in rituals or whatever — but it doesn’t — so that kind of leads me to believe it is for another purpose which is to terrify kids and keep them under control. That’s how I see ritual abuse.
I think what happened was Dr. Green started screening kids — apparently there were several criteria for selecting kids for the project — one was that they had to already have been traumatized somewhat so they had the ability to dissociate; another was they had to have good memories; another was they had to be really intelligent. As time went on, he looked for compliance traits because there were some real rebellious ones that fought him. When you look at that, at some point you come across the fact that some of these kids were already being abused in sex rings. One of the things they wanted to do was make kids forget, have amnesia for stuff that was happening to them. There are a number of ways of doing that. Trauma is the best way of inducing amnesia for an event. What Dr. Green would do is order a trauma — and if they had a sex ring lurking in the background, he would just send them back to be ritually abused again and that would create a ritual abuse memory and then he would do his thing, and then send them back again — Claudia describes it like a sandwich: you have a trauma, ritual abuse, back to the laboratory and Green does his nasty little thing and then you have another trauma after and they were spaced in certain ways in order to maximize the dissociative effect and maximize the amnesia for what Green was doing. So they were allowed to remember the ritual abuse, but that was supposed to keep therapists busy, busy, busy for a long time and you were never, ever supposed to get to the mind control stuff. And all my clients have told me this.
Another way it happened was if there was not a sex ring, or satanic cult or whatever in the background readily available, then I think Green produced the same kind of effect in the laboratory and introduced images of satan, people in costumes, did the same kinds of ritual stuff — but you get more of a sense that it is not as full, it is not as much abuse, and there isn’t as much ceremony or learning that takes place like it does in ritual abuse. I have clients that report either….

Mind Control: Simple to Complex Ellen P. Lacter, Ph.D. Organizations with a wide range of political and criminal agendas have historically relied on coercive interrogation and brainwashing of various types to force submission and information from enemies and victims, and to indoctrinate and increase cooperation in members and captors. http://endritualabuse.org/about/mind-control-simple-to-complex/
Mental health and law enforcement professionals working with severe trauma are increasingly seeing victims of torture for the purpose of installation of more covert mind control, that is, mind control that was “installed” in a deeply dissociated (without conscious awareness) state, and controls the person from these unconscious, dissociated, states of mind (Boyd, 1991; Coleman, 1994; Hersha, Hersha, Griffis, & Schwarz, 2001; Katchen & Sakheim, 1992; Keith, 1998; Marks, 1979; Neswald & Gould, 1993; Neswald, Gould, & Graham-Costain, 1991; Noblitt & Perskin, 2000; Oksana, 2001; Ross, 2000; Ryder, 1992; Rutz, 2001; Sheflin & Opton, 1978; Smith, 1993; Weinstein, 1990). The evidence of the existence of covert mind control has begun to surface in the legal arena as well (e.g., Orlikow v. U.S., 682 F.S. 77 (D.D.C. 1988).

Interview with Brian Moss: Qualities and Information Useful for a Therapist and a Client Working with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) https://ritualabuse.us/research/did/interview-with-brian-moss-qualities-and-information-useful-for-a-therapist-and-a-client-working-with-dissociative-identity-disorder-did/
Integrating a trauma narrative, especially if it is the result of sophisticated mind control procedures, is a complex and lengthy process where subjective states (hypnosis, drugs) and manipulated states (electric shock, psychic-driving, sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation) are mixed with objective states (veridical memory of ritual/sexual abuse or any other experiences meant to terrorize.)….
Complex DID systems are not simply a response to trauma and stress—even horrific trauma such as ritual abuse, though it does have a role to play. Nor is it caused iatrogenically by well-meaning therapists attempting to treat trauma survivors as Wikipedia would have us believe. DID is mind control, intentionally practiced and requiring a great deal of effort and conditioning over a period of many years. To develop an elaborate DID system is to endure an ongoing medical procedure throughout childhood, one that requires clinical settings with access to extensive equipment and pharmaceuticals…..
Modern DID bears no resemblance to these early, primitive cases but is instead the outcome of a century of covert research on these dissociative states and their successful creation and exploitation.
This statement has caused the most discussion yet is critical in understanding the true causes of present-day Dissociative Identity Disorder. So what is Mind Control Programming? I use the concepts programming and mind control interchangeably. All DID systems are the result of mind control and programming techniques. I want to clarify this statement; it is very important and has serious implications. The mind does indeed dissociate naturally both in normative contexts (selective attention) and in response to trauma—but dissociative states do not self-organize into elaborate systems with the levels of complexity that we are seeing today—that is something that requires interference from without. Modern cases of DID demonstrate hierarchy and are structured to meet a variety of demands. This is never random, or entirely a response to trauma, though trauma is used to create and maintain the compartmentalization in DID. These parallel conscious states, each exhibiting their own conditioning, are what we call alters….
Mind control evolved from two main foundations:
1) The Soviet discovery of conditioned reflexes (Pavlov 1903) and continued research within the field of behavioral psychology.
2) Advances in understanding the creation of parallel dissociative states with independent memory systems and control mechanisms utilizing research in hypnosis and trauma-based splitting of conscious processes.

The research and opinions in this well documented essay are solely those of the author….based on available documents and nearly 30 years of experience treating Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Understanding the true etiology of DID
Complex DID systems are not simply a response to trauma – even horrific trauma such as ritual abuse, though it does have a role to play. Nor is it caused iatrogenically by well-meaning therapists attempting to treat trauma survivors as Wikipedia would have us believe. DID is mind control, intentionally practiced and requiring a great deal of effort and conditioning over a period of many years. To develop an elaborate DID system is to endure an ongoing medical procedure throughout childhood, one that requires clinical settings with access to extensive equipment and pharmaceuticals.
At the turn of the century there were indeed cases of “split personality,” a phenomena observed by many of the pioneers attempting to make sense of dissociative processes: Pierre Janet in Paris; Breuer and Freud in Vienna; F.W.H. Myers in London; and Morton Prince in Boston. These initial reports were found to be the result of trauma in childhood but rarely produced more than a few alter states and often just one. Childhood incest does not lead to elaborate DID systems.
Modern DID bears no resemblance to these early, primitive cases but is instead the outcome of a century of covert research on these dissociative states and their successful creation and exploitation.
The exploitation can occur in many contexts, with the common feature being that any activity remains hidden and compartmentalized. Typical contexts of abuse, many of which overlap, include: cults and deviant social networks; child pornography/prostitution; medical/psychological research, military or intelligence networks; private contractors; organized crime (banking, drugs/weapons, human trafficking)….
Conclusive evidence that Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder or MPD) is caused by extensive childhood trauma and not iatrogenically (resulting from the activity of physicians) or socially.
Propaganda & Mind Control
After seeing a variety of articles and letters on and off the web that I believed either knowingly or unknowingly used propaganda and/or mind control techniques, I thought it would be a good idea to print an article about this, so that survivors would be able to recognize these techniques and protect themselves against them or avoid them.
How Cues and Programming Work in Mind Control and Propaganda
A survivor may be tortured repeatedly until an new alter is created. This alter will be given a cue to let them know when to come out, this could be a smell, word, number, sound, color and so on. This cue is either paired with the alter’s creation and is given to the alter to listen for or to look for. The law of strength applies to the strength of the trauma and the strength of the cue. A stronger smell may be easier to associate with a strong trauma, which makes the conditioning stronger. Also if the alter and cue are paired together or closer in terms of time, they will associate more easily.

Alleged child predators caught in undercover April Fools sex sting
Apr 6th 2016
While millions across the country were using social media to harmlessly prank their friends and family last week, police in Florida took to the dark corners of the Internet to uncover and stop alleged would-be child sex offenders.
The undercover child sex sting caught 18 men arranging sexual encounters with children.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd released the results of “Operation April’s Fools” on Tuesday.
“These freaks and these deviants are looking for our children every day online,” Judd said at a news conference. “They worked in all different lines of business, and they had one thing in common: they’re child predators.”
Investigators said the men had arranged to have sex with children from 10 to 14-years-old.
Undercover detectives nabbed the men by luring them with fictitious ads or profiles on social media, websites and phone applications, pretending to be either children or their custodians.
Despite prior coverage of past events, multiple men responded to and engaged with the undercover detectives, and officials divulged some of the most shocking details of those alleged encounters….

Texas man who killed boy, drank his blood executed
Vasquez has appealed his execution
By Holly Yan CNN 04/06 2016
Pablo Vasquez, a Texas man who killed a 12-year-old boy in 1998 and reportedly drank his blood after a satanic calling, was executed Wednesday, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice announced….
Vasquez, 38, had appealed his execution, but a stay was denied and he was put to death at 6:35 p.m.
Vasquez was convicted of killing 12-year-old David Cardenas in Donna, Texas, 18 years ago. Authorities said Vasquez and his cousin met the boy at a party.
On the night of April 18, 1998, “Vasquez struck the victim in the head with a piece of pipe and a shovel,” the Department of Criminal Justice said. “The victim’s body was buried behind a residence. … Vasquez took a ring and a necklace from the victim.”….
Vasquez told police in a videotaped interview that he drank the boy’s blood, according to The Monitor newspaper in South Texas.
“The blood was dripping, and (I) got it all over my face, so I don’t know. I mean, something just told me drink,” Vasquez said, according to a transcript of the statement.
Vasquez said he tried to cut off the boy’s head, according to The Monitor. A detective asked Vasquez why.
“The devil was telling me to take it away from, to keep it, keep it, couldn’t come off,” Vasquez said. “I was just freaking out cause I was hearing that.”….
Common Forms of Misinformation and Tactics of Disinformation about Psychotherapy for Trauma Originating in Ritual Abuse and Mind Control By Ellen Lacter, Ph.D., December 18, 2012.
This page on my website seeks to expose a number of common forms of misinformation and tactics of disinformation about psychotherapy for trauma originating in ritual abuse and mind control. Disinformation is distinguished from misinformation in that it is intentionally fraudulent.
Misinformation and disinformation about ritual abuse and mind control trauma and psychotherapy to treat such trauma appear in both paper and electronic media, but are particularly abundant on the Internet on websites of individuals and organizations, bookseller reviews, blogs, newsletters, online encyclopedias, social networking sites, and e-group listservs.

Amnesia for childhood sexual abuse is a condition.
The existence of this condition is beyond dispute.
Repression is merely one explanation
– often a confusing and misleading one –
for what causes the condition of amnesia.
Some people sexually abused in childhood
will have periods of amnesia for their abuse,
followed by experiences of delayed recall.
Research on the Effect of Trauma on Memory
Research has shown that traumatized individuals respond by using a variety of psychological mechanisms. One of the most common means of dealing with the pain is to try and push it out of awareness. Some label the phenomenon of the process whereby the mind avoids conscious acknowledgment of traumatic experiences as dissociative amnesia . Others use terms such as repression , dissociative state , traumatic amnesia, psychogenic shock, or motivated forgetting . Semantics aside, there is near-universal scientific acceptance of the fact that the mind is capable of avoiding conscious recall of traumatic experiences.
What about Recovered Memories?

Research discussing corroboration and accuracy of recovered memories
Recovered memory corroboration rates
“Between 31 and 64 percent of abuse survivors in six major studies reported that they forgot “some of the abuse.” Numbers reporting severe amnesia ranged from under 12% to 59%….Studies report 50-75% of abuse survivors corroborating the facts of their abuse through an outside source.”

Recovered Memory Data
Recovered Memories – Child Abuse Wiki
Recovered memories have been defined as the phenomenon of partially or fully losing parts of memories of traumatic events, and then later recovering part or all of the memories into conscious awareness. They have also been defined as the recollections of memories that are believed to have been unavailable for a certain period of time. There is very strong scientific evidence that recovered memories exist. This has been shown in many scientific studies. The content of recovered memories have fairly high corroboration rates.
There are many studies that have proven that the recovered memories of traumatic events exist. Brown, Scheflin and Hammond found 43 studies that showed recovered memories for traumatic events. The Recovered Memory Project has collected 101 corroborated cases of recovered memories. Hopper’s research shows that amnesia for childhood sexual abuse is “beyond dispute.” He states that “at least 10% of people sexually abused in childhood will have periods of complete amnesia for their abuse, followed by experiences of delayed recall”  In one study of women with previously documented histories of sexual abuse, 38% of the women did not remember the abuse that had happened 17 years before. Most recovered memories either precede therapy or the use of memory recovery techniques. One studied showed that five out of 19 women with histories of familial sexual abuse either forgot specific details or had “blank periods” for these memories. Another study showed that “40% reported a period of forgetting some or all of the abuse”. Herman and Harvey’s study showed that 16% of abuse survivors had “complete amnesia followed by delayed recall”. Corwin’s individual case study provides evidence of the existence of recovered memories on videotape.
Other researchers state:

There is scientific evidence in support of the phenomena of dissociation and recovered memory in Holocaust survivors.                      
Many studies show high corroboration rates for recovered memories of traumatic events. These rates vary from 50 – 75%, 64%, 77%, 50%, 75% 68% 47%, and 70% . One study showed amnesia in 12 murderers, with “objective evidence of severe abuse…obtained in 11 cases”. There are also additional studies showing the corroboration of recovered memories.
