Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults And Beliefs-A new book by Steven Hassan as discussed by Pierre S. Freeman
The Failure Of Deprogramming
In many ways, Steven Hassan has been one of my strongest influences and a new book by him (even though it is a somewhat revised edition of “Releasing the Bonds”) is a breath of fresh air. It shows you how far the anti-cult movement has progressed in its methodologies. Here I am referring to the methodologies of interactions and interventions rather than the kind of self-liberation and self-analysis that composed the majority of my effort to escape AMORC and its relentless undermining of my authentic self.
I availed myself of counseling a few times. This was… Continue reading
If you have read my books and disagree, exactly why do you not think that AMORC is not a cult? Please address the exact issues I bring up.
For instance, does not AMORC rather strongly imply that it is the only legitimate, clearly active spiritual fraternity in the world? What proof do you actually have that AMORC has the history and authority it claims for itself?
What do you really know about FUDOSI- and its right to actually provide credentials for AMORC? Do you know anything about its history? Do you know why it was disbanded?

This is a slightly different version the list I published in Prisoner- I call this “Sixteen Steps to Mind Control Slavery.” It is quickly meant to explain why AMORC is a Mind Control Platform.

STEP 2 CREATE HOLY TEXTS – A WRITTEN AUTHORITY
Give them something to read, memorize and believe in. Provide them with monographs and make them read them over and over.
STEP 3 DEVELOP AN EXALTED LEADERSHIP –… Continue reading
In reviewing Initiation 3, I commented on how, at a certain point after the ritual has advanced to a certain point, the candidate is told to imagine how the initiations took place thousands of years ago. By doing this, the monograph says,
-you will attune with the Akashic Records and, on the screen of your consciousness, you will see particular scenes rising from a distant past..
In AMORC UNMASKED, I make this critical point:
The question for someone undergoing very extensive work in imaging while involved with an occult organization is whether they are preparing themselves for higher reality, presumably… Continue reading
In my last blog, we discussed the set-up for the Initiation I carried out in my home sanctum for Temple Degree 3.
After meticulously creating conditions for a very powerful hypnotic platform, as described in both the Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC UNMASKED, the candidate is then told:
To perpetuate this rite, I asked that you remain seated, relax as much as possible, and try to imagine what could compose this phenomena, which the candidates of the initiation could not understand. If you can make yourself receptive enough, you will attune with the Akashic Records and, on the screen… Continue reading
