Journal Entry 2: Mass hypnosis

Journal Entry 2: Mass hypnosis

Hi Everyone,

I am surprised that I am posting so soon after my first post on Jan. 14. I usually post only once a week.

I am again shocked that instead of talking about what I teach, writing with the English language, I am writing about hypnosis. To be exact, I am writing about mass hypnosis, something I didn’t know existed until this week.

Mass hypnosis is the ability to hypnotize large amounts of people at a time, persuading them to take action in some way. It is a technique commonly used in marketing and politics.”

Understanding why

I have been struggling to understand why women in my age group, seniors, who had people they know return from Viet Nam in body bags votedfor a person who said he loved war and then proceeded to prove this statement by warring with someone nearly every day.

I got part of the answer when something happened to a Hispanic businessman in a certain US small town. One of the town’s leaders said, “I didn’t think Trump meant us and the people who voted for him. I thought Trump meant those people, those people over there.”

In other words, people heard what Trump said but believed he didnt’ mean them; he meant those people, those people over there.

So, the senior women who voted for him may have thought that Trump wouldn’t send their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren to war, but he would send the children of those people, those people over there.

This was helpful but not enough. I kept listening and observing.

Second presidential debate

I watched a few seconds of the second presidential debate. It was several thousand miles away from me and my TV.  As I observed and listened, I felt my self being sucked into the speaker.  I found myself thinking “Oh, isn’t he cute. Oh, this poor person. Everyone is beating up on him.”

As soon as I recognized these thoughts, I disconnected. I have never in my life thought that any man was cute.

This sucking feeling so troubled me that I went to someone expert in human behavior. That’s when I found out about mass hypnosis.

This expert explained that this technique has been and is used by many people. For example, ministers of  mega-churches, politicians, and anyone who has a large following uses this technique.

They know how to use their voice tones, their body language, words, and props to get what they want: a mass of people who will give them money or something that will lead to money like votes.

Hypnotic trance

After learning this, I stopped my search. After I was almost sucked into this man, I understand why people continue to follow a man who continuously demonstrates his hatred of the two greatest documents ever written: the American Constitution and the American Bill of Rights.

His supporters are in a hypnotic trance.

I was lucky. I recognized that something was wrong and broke away.

I don’t know how those who have been in this trance for many years can break away. I assume mental health experts will have to help them.


I write these words to warn you that mass hypnosis is real. It is used every day. All of us have been victimized by it.

“The Dirty Little Secrets Of Covert Mass Hypnosis” gives an explanation of how this happens to us.


We are each responsible for the sovereignty, the autonomy, the independence of our own mind. In this time of the internet and social media, creating and maintaining mental sovereignty is a must.

I know it’s hard but do it anyway and do:

Be relaxed. Have fun. Learn lots.

Journal Entry 1: Iroquois Confederacy

Journal Entry 1: Iroquois Confederacy

Hi Everyone,

I have used Barbara Lucas teaches as my business name for many years. Until now, no matter how much thought I gave it, I couldn’t develop a website.

I couldn’t because, for many years, I was a pre-k and elementary public-school teacher. As most of you know, these teachers teach all subjects. They must know child development and how children learn as well as all this subject matter.

Then I taught on the Out School platform. I had to name what I really, really, really love to teach. I love to teach language. I love words and the magic that can be done with them. I love that all kinds of words come from the arrangement of only 26 alphabet letters. Wow!

Once I named that language as my area, developing a website was easy.

So. Welcome to my first post on my new website Barbara Lucas teaches!

This site is dedicated to writing the English language so imagine my shock that the very first lesson I’m giving on this site is an American history lesson!

You see, the Capitol of the United States of America was attacked by its own citizens on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

Usually when a country has a sacred place that place has to do with their religion. In America, the Capitol is considered sacred. It is the place where the rights of all humans are celebrated, honored, and protected.

Perhaps American citizens have forgotten that most of the ideas in the American Constitution come from the Iroquois Confederacy. Perhaps we have forgotten the principles that the Founding Fathers choose as the foundation of this country.

The Iroquois Confederacy were many tribes of Native Americans who formed a confederacy so that the people of their region could live in wellness, prosperity, and peace instead of warring all the time.

They developed the ideas of everyone having a voice and that voice must be heard.

They had the idea that the job of the chief was to make certain that every voice was heard, actually listened to.

They had the idea that every tribe had an equal say in decision-making. It didn’t matter which tribes were rich or which were poor. The size of the tribe didn’t matter. Every tribe had an equal say.

The Iroquois decided what problems were problems for the local tribes to solve and what problems the confederacy needed to solve. In our time, we call this state’s rights versus rights of the federal government.

The American Bill of Rights developed from the experiences the American colonists had with the English government of that time, way back in the 1600 and 1700s.

It is time that we Americans paused and remembered our heritage. Remembering the ideas that came from the Iroquois Confederacy is a good place to pause. Perhaps we need to explore the ideas that these great people developed and gave to the world via the United States of America before we do something stupid and lose it all.
