Hidden In Plain Sight

CMA YouTube

Pendants are the most notable physical product CMA sells. They’re the principal identifier the wearer is a MJD devotee. Buying and wearing one of these pendants demonstrates you’re deep into CMA and Master John Douglas’s teaching, not least because of the significant cost.

Available in three sizes 19mm, 25mm, 34mm and a choice of 4 colors: silver, rose gold, yellow gold, white gold. The prices range $149.99 – $1949.99

To be clear, not all followers wear a pendant, it’s not compulsory to buy one, presumably not all are willing to spend that much. But it’s very much a sign you’re a serious MJD believer. Like everything CMA/MJD related, the more involved you become the more products and courses you’re recommended, and the more you spend.

Like the $10,000+ Elite course, the pendants are aspirational products.

The design is not original and not even specifically CMA but is important to the Church. The pendant (chain not included) has a low visual impact when worn and not something that would attract much attention. It doesn’t appear out of the ordinary. But once you know the origins, they are easy to spot.

They’re not only worn at CMA events or when using a meditation CD or other spiritual tool. From my observations they tend to be worn day to day.

The design is called “Metatron’s Cube”, an example of so-called “sacred geometry”. Metatron is said to be an angel from the Old Testament but has no specific links to CMA. I’ve never read a proper explanation why this symbol is associated with CMA and I don’t recall any occurrence of the word “metatron” by CMA. One could almost say CMA/MJD have appropriated it

But further general reading on the symbol from non-CMA sources e.g. here and here give a good indication why MJD/CMA use it. It matches well with MJD’s teachings on energy and negativity:

Metatron’s Cube is a symbol that’s meant to represent the journey of energy throughout the universe, and of balance within the universe. It is made up of all the Platonic Solids, but it also has thirteen circles in it to represent the thirteen archangels.

One common thing Metatron’s Cube is used for is as a meditation aid.

It repulses and disperses negative energy while acting as a kind of battery for you to draw energy from. This centrifugal force, even if it’s only in your mind, can allow you to shake off the negativity of a difficult day, and move forward with positive energy flowing into and through you.

However since 2019 the symbol has for some reason appeared very rarely in CMA material. In earlier years it was used often in their social media posts, e.g:

CMA Facebook, 4th December 2018

The symbol remains significant for CMA. I consider it their unofficial logo. It also appears on other physical products, such as their “Harmony Repair Directed Prayer Device for Travel” which is supposedly able to “clear the air of negative frequencies”:

The CMA chapel in Boone, North Carolina has it affixed to a wall overlooking the so-called “Maha Crystal”:

So what’s the deal with the pendants?

MJD devotee, Instagram 13th June 2017

A Google search of “metatron pendants” shows CMA are far from the only sellers of such pendants. Indeed, one of the companies found are presumably CMA’s supplier, though I haven’t found one that exactly matches the CMA design. You could save a lot of $$$ and buy a 3D-print model for only $10 and make your own, though I’m sure MJD and Hartnett would frown upon it.

So wearing the design doesn’t necessarily mean you are a MJD follower or even heard of him or CMA, but there is a large overlap between CMA people and people with aligned beliefs who’d be interested in wearing one. The photos on my blog will always be of known CMA people, however. Whenever I’m researching CMA, it’s never long until I see one.

Back in 2017, one of the earliest CMA posts made clear what the benefits of the pendant were; the caption parallels the description of the generic “Metatron’s Cube” I quoted previously:

CMA Instagram 2nd May 2017

“This beautiful pendant uses sacred geometry to provide protection from negative energy. Wearing it throughout your day creates an angelic shield against negative thoughts …”

But now in 2020, CMA never post on social media anything about their pendant, and the website product page is far less direct in explaining why you should get one:

The Master Angels can reduce the negative effects of electromagnetic radiation, negative thoughts, and negative emotions while energizing and empowering the immune system, aura, and energy fields.

https://masterangels.org/product/19-mm-gold-pendant/

CMA’s product description above is carefully worded to not exactly say the pendant does anything. Instead it states what the fictional Master Angels can do. I assume this is for legal reasons so CMA aren’t selling unlicenced medical/healthcare products and making claims about them (but see the Instagram post above about the travel device, where their caption fails to make the distinction.)

The fatuous idea being the pendant somehow channels that power to the wearer’s aura in their everyday life wherever they go. This matches what the non-CMA articles linked above say about Metatron’s Cube.

But that’s not all. This post from 2018 reveals the pendants appear to come with a set of “commands” activated by touching. Here the winner of CMA’s “September Pendant Testimonial contest” relates controlling a dangerous dog with it:

I do hope “Stokes Dickins” took the opportunity to recommend the dog owner buy a $149.99 CMA “pet repair disc” to calm her dog. Think of the karmic rewards, Stokes.

Here it’s worn on a bracelet:

A rare example of MJD mentioning the pendants:

“Our healing capabilities … we have devices which I won’t talk about but for our family and our people use your devices, especially wear your pendant and there are reasons for that I’ll tell you later. Use our devices they will work…”

“Devices which I won’t talk about”, “reasons for that I’ll tell you later” how very vague! Wouldn’t want to publicly claim the pendants do something right?

But a deeper dive reveals MJD wasn’t always so cagey about the pendant’s powers, before CMA came along with their “great legal talent” in the form of “top legal mind” Jeffrey Wagner presumably advising vagueness was the order of the day, lest they fall foul of FDA’s Medical Device regulations.

He’s been selling these pendants since approx end of 2011, 6 years before Hartnett formally established CMA for him:

Back then MJD was explicit what powers the pendants supposedly gave with a longer set of claims than CMA now give:

This beautiful tool is programmed to directly accomplish the following:

Dispels negative frequencies including electromagnetic radiation, background earth radiation, other forms of radiation, varying negative frequencies from radio waves, full body scanners, gamma rays and more and dissipates it out of your energy fields.

Serves as a barrier by dis-empowering the affects of any negative emanation from people around you such as negative emotional energy, negative thoughts, negative psychic energy, and negative intentions.

Energizes and empowers your immune system, aura and energy fields to keep you strong and is designed for your protection.

Needless to say, it’s all complete nonsense.

Like CMA’s product page today, no reason is given to buy any size/color over another besides price and personal preference. Except suggesting the 19mm size is ideal for children. However, it is easy to imagine the larger more expensive sizes are privately recommended as more “powerful”.

Back in 2012 MJD also sold a $3,629.99 diamond variation:

Hmm… diamonds are very on-brand for Hartnett, I wonder why CMA don’t sell them.

Debra Wagner is seen wearing this diamond variation in her husband Jeffrey Wagner’s Divine Miracle Stories video :

These pendants must be one of MJD’s biggest sources of income for years.

I’ve not seen evidence MJD himself has ever worn a pendant, which gives impression he considers himself above such earthly tools. Or doesn’t believe in them. I’ve always held he doesn’t believe a lot of what he says, and doesn’t truly believe his “Master Angels” fairy tale.

Then again, maybe it wasn’t MJD’s idea to sell them in the first place…
