Journal Entry: Casting One’s Net

Journal Entry: Casting One’s Net

Feb. 12, 2021                       My home, USA                            74

Dear Journal,

I have watched the TV viewing of the Second Impeachment Trial of Trump. I am surprised that everyone seems so surprised about the violence and the Jan. 6, 2021 attempt to destroy the Law and Order of these United States.

I remember being horrified during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign when fighting happened in his events that he didn’t immediately say, “This is a country of law and order. We settle our differences at the ballot box and in the courts”

No, he never said those words or even came close to saying them. In fact, he encouraged the fighting.

He lost my vote when he said that he loved war; he cemented that loss when he did the above.

I was shocked that so many people supported a man who loves war and shows it daily. He is always warring with someone.

It is as Dr. Phil says, “The best predictor of present and future behavior is past behavior.”

Trump showed us who he really is time after time. Jan. 6 should have been no surprise to anyone.


So, in a country that has survived and thrived because of its practice of law and order, how has this man been allowed to wreck the havoc that he has?

Fear seems to be the answer. So many people are terrified of him.

I do not fault the Republican Congress people who refuse to vote against him. He is someone I greatly fear simply because of the times when I felt my beingness being sucked into his beingness. I imagine that these Republican Congress people and others are completely under his control.

Red Alert

This experience has put me on red alert when I am around anyone because everyone has this power. Many of us don’t know we have this power; most of us don’t know how to use it; the majority would use this power to bring forth for the greater good.

Somehow, Trump, and those who are like him—advertisers, corporate people, religious leaders—, has learned to use his personal self to not simply draw people to him but to overwhelm and possess them.

Cast a Wide Net

This thing that he and other charismatic leaders do, this pulling people to them and possessing them, reminds me of the Christian teaching to cast a wide net. In other words, to include many people and things when on the hunt for something.

When I began my study of metaphysics, I was surprised to learn that this study has been known for centuries but kept secret.

It was kept secret because this knowledge given to people who do not have what Dr. Phil calls a moral compass creates Jan. 6, 2021 events and people who destroy the good.

It seems that to accomplish anything one must cast a wide net.  I am reluctant to do so.  I am extremely reluctant to be caught in someone else’s net.

Therefore, I will continue to be on high alert when around charismatic people and when around the rest of us.

I only want to be in nets of my choosing. I only want to cast nets and gather people who want wellness, prosperity, and peace.

And so it is.

Journal Entry 2: Mass hypnosis

Journal Entry 2: Mass hypnosis

Jan. 15, 2021                            USA                                             74

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.
