Adoration of Master John Douglas

Despite MJD assigning attribution for his “miracles” onto his “Master Angels and the Supreme God”, and despite Christopher Hartnett insisting MJD and his Elites are merely “healing facilitators”, there is no shortage of gratitude and veneration for MJD personally. Indeed, it’s positively encouraged as part of CMA life.

The phrase “Thankyou Supreme Grand Master John Douglas” is a well-worn mantra of CMA. Formerly, the majority of their social media posts included the hashtag #thankyousupremegrandmasterjohndouglas but for some reason in 2020 usage has notably declined. Since around October the hashtag is infrequently used on CMA’s Instagram but earlier appeared in every post. On CMA’s Facebook there’s been no #thankyousupremegrandmasterjohndouglas tag since around March.

I’m not sure why that is. If CMA is trying to distance themselves from the supposedly independent MJD for legal reasons it’s totally unconvincing because their posts remain all about MJD and his philosophy and events. Besides, CMA was created to support MJD from the beginning anyway, and his name remains alongside “CMA International Foundation” in the titlebar of CMA’s homepage:

www.masterangels.org homepage

Or have CMA decided the phrase conflicts too much with their disclaimer:

References to the concepts of healing or treatments on this website are describing faith-based blessings performed by God and the Master Angels and not performed by any individual

masterangels.org

Here are examples of gratitude and thanks for MJD:

On July 7, 2010, I was diagnosed as having no discernible cancer.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 anal cancer on January of 2010. I began taking chemotherapy in March and completed 5 chemo sessions on June 3. My doctor intended to provide chemo to me for the rest of my life. She was intent in convincing me that I would die from this cancer. I met John Douglas on April 21 and he changed my life. In our session, I felt the oily vapor of illness being lifted from my abdomen and I coughed as it left. I felt the blessing of his Master Spirit Guides as they surrounded me with loving strength. There was no need for “faith” as the experience was something that I “knew”. I have since played Master John’s CDs more or less constantly and have meditated with them daily. On July 7, 2010, I was diagnosed as having no discernible cancer. My immune system is strong, my anti-oxidant levels are high and my inflammation is extremely low. My circulating tumor count is zero. This is not due to the chemo. It is due to the work that is done by Master John Douglas.

Well, I told him about that pain and in 2 minutes it was gone.

I have had chronic neck/shoulder pain for as long as I can remember. I didn’t put it together until he said something, but it has been ever since I started taking medication about 20 years ago and MJD said the pain was due to drug residues on top of my pain receptors. I stopped the meds 5 years ago, but some residues stayed in the body.

Well, I told him about that pain and in 2 minutes it was gone. Amazing. It had gone from mild to horrendous, annoying to debilitating, requiring pain medication, chiropractic and bodywork. I’ll keep you posted if it continues like this long term, but it’s been a few days and it feels like I will continue to be pain free.

Please send MJD my love and appreciation for the changes in me and for helping my father long distance and for spending so much time with all of us from Farifield. He is a wonderful man and very angelic.

The first night in a hotel, I played Location Repair when we got into the room.

My friend and I traveled in Florida last week. The first night in a hotel, I played Location Repair when we got into the room. She said, “that Douglas stuff really works.” I asked her what she meant. She said that she sees spirits and it usually takes her a long time to clear a room, getting in the corners, etc. She said the room was clear of all in minutes. In the next hotel room, she asked me to play Location Repair as soon as we walked in. I played it in the rental car as well. She just ordered and downloaded Location and Spirit Repair, Location teleseminar, Spirit Repair DVD and the Food Repair Disc. She listened to Location Repair and wrote, “I feel so much better now that I am listening to Master John. Very powerful. So glad you got me going”.

As a sidenote: CMA removed a crucial part of the previous Facebook post when they reposted it:

CMA wouldn’t want to give people the impression MJD can kill viruses would they, no way.

Friday night, I had a stroke (and then a miracle happened).

I was told it would be months of rehab to regain my speech and movement — if at all. … Now I am fully recovered

How this miracle happened may challenge some of you, but it is real. The power of prayer is scientifically documented — this takes it to a whole new level. Laura immediately contacted the Church of the Master Angels (www.masterangels.org). We have both personally had several miraculous healings in the past with this organization. It’s humbling and inspiring how quickly people rallied — a large group started to pray for us. Master John Douglas heard the call, looked in remotely from Australia, and worked on me personally — this is what saved me. I am not sure how much I can share publicly of the details I was told, but I am forever grateful!

It is a miracle and I will be forever grateful. Thank you Master John Douglas.

Robert Styler Facebook, August 2020

Some comments made on the above Facebook post:

Robert appears to be friends with Hartnett.

Next is a story from Hartnett himself, as told in the 21 March 2020 teleseminar :

“… I don’t speak untruth. Six days ago I came down with the worst flu I’ve ever had. It was a taste of this virus [COVID-19] we found out later.

We don’t usually ask John, he’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders with everybody dying, literally all of our family, people who are dying constantly, he’s constantly working on them. And my wife made a text she sent to John… I had a 104 fever for two days last week, could barely talk.

15 minutes after that was texted to Master John he killed that virus in my body. He called Linda and he said “Give him a while it was a mess, he had all types of things going on, double bacterias, different viruses exploding in his body, he said “I’ve killed it all” and literally 3 hours later my fever was 99 degrees, it took me two days to get back to normal.

This is just a taste of what Master John does. Constantly as we travel around the world I’ve personally witnessed over 25,000 of these healings whether it’s cancer, lupus … it’s a reality.

I’m a businessman, if it doesn’t work I don’t do it. I’ve seen so many miracles I don’t know what to do with them all.

Some are believers some are doubters.

Sustain your belief and turn off any doubt, negativity. For the next hour and a half, I’m gonna ask you to literally turn off that part of your brain that always thinks it knows better but doesn’t…

Hartnett

I hardly need to say I have a hard time believing any of that. The way he speaks and how he purposely brings up doubters to gain listeners’ confidence is just like an old-fashioned travelling snake oil salesman hawking dodgy concoctions (Something MJD knows something about himself, more about that in a later post.)

“For the next hour and a half, I’m gonna ask you to literally turn off that part of your brain…” sounds like the opening narration of The Outer Limits: “For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear.”

“If it doesn’t work I don’t do it” but that could be said of anyone about anything (unless it’s MJD persuading you to use his useless tools.) What Hartnett should really be saying as a businessman is “if it doesn’t make money I don’t do it.”

Even if Hartnett really had this fever and his wife really called MJD, it’s no miracle his fever had reduced two days later, that’s pretty standard for fevers right?

I’m planning a later post all about MJD and COVID-19.

“It’s not that we’re zealots for John Douglas, Master John Douglas, it’s just that we’re grateful.

He healed me, my three daughters, my mother, my father, my brother-in-law, my sister-in-law … that’s what we’re grateful for.

How can we promote this guy, ’cause he won’t promote himself, he’s the humblest guy I know. it’s not like he wants millions and millions of followers, he doesn’t get off on that, there’s not an ego there.

His mission is to teach as many people as possible to do what he does, his advanced courses which I’ve taken, my wife, two daughters have taken. We love him …”

Hartnett, “Superhero of Love” podcast 12 Sep 2019

Hartnett created a church for MJD, commissioned saintly paintings of him for the walls of his gilted chapel and came up with the title “Supreme Grand Master” for him. But definitely not a zealot.

Most of those names you’ll find again and again commenting and sharing CMA material. I doubt any of them truly believe what they say. If any of this was true MJD would be world famous for real.

Jan Casebolt in particular I want to highlight as a lead promotor and booster for MJD. She has a @masterangels.org email address. She was supposedly cured of Sarcoidosis by MJD. Watch her in a CMA series called “Divine Miracle Stories”:

As of time of writing, video has 1355 views, 58 upvotes, zero downvotes

She’s certainly not the only core member of MJD’s spirit squad, most of whom appear in their own similiar “Divine Miracle Stories” episodes.

CMA YouTube

I’ve included the above ‘physical trauma’ testimonial because I find it funny how unimpressive it is. This person was hit by a suitcase and it hurt enough that she could ‘barely’ walk (oh so it wasn’t even bad enough to stop her walking completely?) An unknown amount of time later, the initial numbness/tingling was gone. 2-3 hours later the overall pain had reduced. Next day she was fine. Wow a miracle indeed! I guess this story is intended to show SFRs are suitable purchases for life’s little problems not only the big problems.

A glowing review of the Elite course:

There are many more thanks & testimonials I could add, I hope this post gives a good idea of them.

“We Are Not a Cult”

Definitely not a cult

CMA aren’t afraid of bringing up the c-word.

“There are many many many many people on the planet that claim all kinds of things, but as I said … none of them can verify and prove what they say and do … we don’t parade around looking for publicity. And we are not a money driven organization looking for empires. And we’re not looking to control people’s lives or to create a cult …”

MJD, 21 Mar 2020 teleseminar

MJD raising the subject of cults and money himself seems to me a “controlling the narrative” or a confidence trick. By acknowledging those issues without prompting, he bonds sympathetically with any doubters in the audience. When he then dismisses the ideas by presenting his reasons why those doubts are unfounded, many in the audience will be on his side: “OK he just said it’s not a cult, I guess not then since he’s directly saying it’s not. Maybe this really is legit.”

“We are not a religion, we are not a cult. We have nothing really esoteric. We’re very practical. You’re sick, we’re gonna heal you … through the grace of John Douglas, Master John Douglas and the Master Angels.”

Hartnett, 28 Mar 2020 teleseminar

That clip couldn’t be more inaccurate. Nothing esoteric? CMA/MJD have obscure terminology coming out their eyeballs. MJD frequently claims to be in possession of secret, protected knowledge and runs the Elite course to teach it.

“I came up with the name Supreme Grand Master John Douglas. We live on a road that has those initials on it … this is not some cult thing … John is the humblest person I know.

He is the perfect person for this karmic mitigation for the world because he takes no credit, yet I’ve seen him do things no-one else on the planet can do.”

Hartnett, 28 Mar 2020 teleseminar

“Supreme Grand Master John Douglas”; a road with the initials on; a spirtual head who talks to angels and uses them to kill viruses; a church formed in his honor; tiers of devotees; endless praise and reverence. Need I go on. Hartnett should ask himself the right questions: who here among us behaves like a cult leader? And to whom is that cult leader dedicated?

Definitely not a cult (2017)
Definitely not a cult (2018)

Questioning Credibility: it’s worth going through the “20 Questions to Evaluate the Validity of a Group or Leader” on Janja Lalich’s site http://cultresearch.org/help/questioning-credibility – CMA/MJD do not score highly.

The humble Supreme Grand Master John Douglas in his gilded chapel (2019)

Hartnett, 28 March 2020 teleseminar

“… We have secret knowledge. John’s told us that from the very beginning. We don’t broadcast what we do. We don’t even advertise. We go on Facebook or maybe Instagram and tell people there’s an opportunity to get healed. We could market this, we have great marketing talent, we got great legal talent, we’ve got people that have been healed from every type of disease you can possibly think of and they’re willing to help.

But we wanna grow organically, we don’t want quantity, we want quality. If this isn’t for you then it’s not for you, God bless you we’ll do whatever we can to help you.

But there’s a new sheriff in town, there’s a whole new paradigm in town.

Now there’s no reason for people to be sick, in pain… I’ve had every disease you can think of… I’ve spent the last 30 years practically in bed…

Notice how Hartnett cultivates exclusivity of being in CMA. This makes those introduced to CMA feel immediately special and more willing to stay around. A selected group of people, chosen, filtered and worked by existing devotees. This contrasts with MJD’s preceding “spiritual masters” such as Jesus who preached for all people, with no paygate or “great legal talent.” What kind of Church to benefit humanity says “If this isn’t for you then it’s not for you”? What happened to “one truth can destroy a million untruths”?

Hartnett, obsessed with being global, invented a Church built on the insane claims of a narcissist “faith healer” for the purpose of becoming a self-sufficient “multi-billion dollar company”:

Hartnett, clip from internal CMA conference call 2019

“… in order to make this group work self-sufficiently, we had to do a test, to show people how they get in the way, to show people how they react, to show people how they are obstructing the natural order of this movement becoming a multi-billion dollar company.”

Introduction

Welcome to my blog of personal, independent research and criticism of the “Church of the Master Angels” and its spiritual head “Master John Douglas” AKA “Supreme Grand Master John Douglas”, the man who professes superhuman abilities of remote sensing and healing by communing with angels.

I’ve decided to begin sharing what I’ve found because there’s a lack of information and opinions about CMA except what’s put out by themselves and their followers. I hope those who find themselves entering CMA/MJD’s orbit will search, find this blog and come away with eyes wider open.

Much of this introduction will be fleshed out in subsequent posts.

“Master John Douglas”, unknown date and location

The main online hub of CMA’s operation is masterangels.org

On their About page they introduce themselves as:

A unitary, non-denominational, faith-based community Church open to all seekers of truth, cosmic awareness and soul-realization, regardless of belief, tradition, creed, or religious affiliation that promotes the selfless worship of God through the teaching of God’s Masters, Angels, and Holy Saints.

The Church, outside of its frequent congregational meetings and services, offers unique tools, products, global healing workshops and seminars throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Australia. The congregational membership of the Church has now expanded to over 25 additional countries throughout the world.

Of John Douglas we are told:

“Born in Australia, in 1971, to a family with a history of several generations of spiritual healers. John is known throughout the world as a consummate Master Healer and gifted clairvoyant with extraordinary telepathic abilities. At the age of nine, John received a complete clairvoyant activation, allowing full vision of the energetic or spiritual dimension. Higher faculties of remote scanning or sensing of the energetic realm or quantum level is also a feature of John’s holistic ability, allowing him to measure and identify various energetic frequencies within the body and surrounding spiritual realms.”

None of the above is verifiable.

I do know he has operated since at least 2006, when he wrote his one and only blog post: “I have traveled extensively to work on wealthy industrialists, heads of state, eccentric billionaires, royalty, businesspeople, working people, animals and children”.

http://spiritrepair.blogspot.com/

I’ve found no evidence of this or any MJD history prior to 2006. In 2017, his Spirit Repair brand transitioned to the newly incorporated Church of the Master Angels.

A charlatan (also called a swindler or mountebank) is a person practising quackery or some similar confidence trick or deception in order to obtain money, fame or other advantages via some form of pretense or deception. Resorting to quackery, pseudoscience, or some knowingly employed bogus means of impressing people in order to swindle his victims by selling them worthless nostrums and similar goods or services that will not deliver on the promises made for them. In reported spiritual communications, a charlatan is a person who fakes evidence that a spirit is “making contact” with the medium and seekers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlatan

MJD is enabled and supported by his worshipful cult with headquarters in a gaudy ‘chapel’ nestled in the picturesque North Carolina mountains near the town of Boone, specifically in a private gated community named Heavenly Mountain.

Chris Hartnett Instagram

The Heavenly Mountain development was built using principles of Maharishi Vastu Architecture laid out by the Indian transcendental meditation guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Such design is said to aid the occupants in connecting to a universal cosmic intelligence.

Not every follower gets to visit the Boone chapel. Visiting is a special, infrequent event. In the centre courtyard there is a pedestal on which a supersized crystal is lit by artifical lighting of different colors. Awe-struck visitors touch and hug the crystal as if conducting pure angelic energy into their minds.

MJD’s wingman, salesman and principle advocate is Heavenly Mountain resident and CMA co-founder Dr Christopher Hartnett. Hartnett was a keen follower of transcendental meditation and once bought a house in the Netherlands to live next door to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he says.

In the 1990s Hartnett ran businesses such as Global Online and USA Global Link (sometimes called Global Link USA) in the burgeoning areas of Internet Telephony and domain name reselling. Hartnett says he met MJD in 2008 by travelling the world looking for healers to cure his debilitating medical problems. Apparently MJD was the only healer who was actually successful, judged by a team of doctors assembled by Hartnett. This is all part of CMA lore.

A rare photo of Hartnett with MJD (unknown date & location)

MJD and Hartnett like talking. Interminably. Hartnett in particular goes off on long tangents and is a frequent namedropper: never missing a chance to mention someone he’s met (or hasn’t) or relate stories from his business days.

Hartnett talks Global SELF & CMA International foundations and finding MJD. Clip from Superhero of Love podcast, 12 Sep 2019

For a supposedly well-travelled and world-renowned healer, there is a curious lack of evidence placing him anywhere besides the USA. As an example, I’m yet to find evidence of a single Australian event he’s ever held.

The earliest quoted Spirit Repair testimonials are overwhelmingly in places such as Fairfield, Iowa and Chicago, Illinois.

Fairfield is significant because it’s home to a large number of transcendental meditation adherents and it is within that community John organized workshops and group healing events years before CMA began and subsequently in CMA’s earliest days. But there’s no mention of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi or transcendental meditation on CMA’s website or materials.

Chicago is significant because it is where Hartnett worked as a commodities broker and owned a gemstone investment company. Chicago is also the home of the Global SELF Foundation which is the recipient organization of $10,000 “donations” by devotees wanting to join CMA’s coveted Elite Development Course.

MJD is described as if he is independent from CMA. Their legal disclaimers are keen to separate the two, but really they are two sides of the same coin. CMA say “Master John Douglas is a frequent speaker and lecturer for the Global SELF Foundation; The Church of the Master Angels and CMA International and its related affiliates.” But actually MJD is their only speaker and lecturer, leaving aside Hartnett in his role as MJD’s warm-up man.

Hartnett introduces MJD – “The #1 medical intuitive on the planet”. Clip from Teleseminar 21 March 2020 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhPK_8BuwQg

MJD is a man of many words, albeit interminable streams of mumbo jumbo, jargon and monotonous verbiage. He is not a man to only say something once, or use one word instead of three. I’ve noticed some of his favorite words are “literally”, “developmental” and “aggregate”. In his manner he comes across as meek, gentle and restrained. But a careful listener will realise he has a sharp mind honed for offering false assurances, dogma and pseudo-intellectualism. Convincing susceptible listeners he is the holder of sacred, secret knowledge. His mind, words, even his silence supposedly capable of tuning into an otherworldly realm of “Master Angels” and thereby channeling their blessings to us Earth-bound mortals.

MJD, 21 March 2020 teleseminar

“We have seminars where we perform healing blessings … everything from the physical level to spiritual level, the mind and emotions. A very powerful way to change your psychology and to remodel your thinking and action and behavior.

… not only do you get a shiny new body when your infection is cured, we have ways to interact with nature and the Creator in the most favorable way.

The ultimate development is that I’m able to instill and train you with capability to verify frequency and matter and truth in any particle. And this be the very powerful secret given to the Earth, it’s not for everybody.

Then you have a way of deciphering truth in your life… is that book wrong? Is that person’s opinion universally true or wrong? What is in this supplement? Is it tainted with iron or lead or is it pure? Every matter through its frequency can be discerned and we can engineer any investigation to show you what literally is the truth of matter… which is not spirituality, it’s not science, there is only one truth of matter that contains both…

We are told he is world-renowned and has an esteemed reputation for his powers. If you haven’t heard of him perhaps the “Lords Of Karma” haven’t judged you as deserving of his knowledge, or likely your friendship group has zero CMA members. And such a pity John is so camera shy, photos and videos are few and far between. Plus his online teleseminars are frequently, indeed I suspect always, audio only.

Something MJD says he can’t do? Remove skintags. He seems to mainly operate on things that can’t be seen with the naked eye. It makes no sense. But of course, something like skintags or broken bones are too easy for the sufferer to know he hasn’t cured it. But anything inside the body like cancer, lyme disease or an invisible micro-organism no-one knows exists? MJD is your guy.

“This is not some cult thing. John is the humblest person I’ve ever met. He is the perfect person”

Hartnett, 28 March 2020 teleseminar

He has a dislike for science, medicine and technology except when it suits him. He feels his arcane knowledge and superpowers are superior to actual science, looking down on doctors for their ignorance of the true nature of reality as he perceives it. And yet MJD doesn’t seek to share his “skills” with the medical community so they could study and learn. But the CMA “medical board” that verify miracles? All apparently medical doctors, though the only doctor ever named is Dr Richard Sarnat, an Elite graduate. This is no independent review board. It’s as bogus as the “peer reviewed” articles Sarnat has published.

MJD explains why his medical treatments are superior to all others. From 28 March 2020 teleseminar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hq58Hu9EkPs

His is a world of “Karmic Mitigation Blessings” (KMBs), “Silent Faith Remote Healings” (SFRs) and a catalog of meditation CDs/mp3s ranging from “Prismatic Awareness” to “Astrological Repair”, each as powerless as the other. All these products are available for anyone to purchase on the CMA website. Purchasers of selected mp3s are encouraged to play them in a loop 24/7.

Notably these aren’t cheap purchases either. You could buy the entire Beatles back catalog for the price of one of these; and get more spiritual comfort too.

MJD explains what his CDs do, then talks about how proof of the existence of the soul will end “Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Apple-fed superiority”. Clip from 28 March 2020 Teleseminar

Let’s take a look at one of CMA’s core products: “Silent Faith Remote Healing”, a kind of prayer. A modern answer to the Catholic Church selling indulgences to absolve of sin and spiritual debt.

The description tells us SFRs are a generous gift from the Master Angels to believers, available 24/7 without needing to attend a workshop or teleseminar. Priced $250 a go, these SFRs must be some pretty powerful and rewarding stuff, right?

But of course, they aren’t. It stretches the bounds of credibility to say these SFR “products” have any effect whatsoever, or that anything happens at all upon their purchase. A sales order is created, money taken from purchaser, and that is surely it.

The Silent Faith Remote Healing Directed Prayers are faith-based and done on the level of silence. Once requested, the work is done by God and the Masters Angels on the subtle silent levels. There is no written or verbal interaction during or after these remote healing directed prayers.

The Silent Faith Remote Healing Directed Prayers can be ordered through this website and can be used for remediation and mitigation of a health challenge or a specific situation that is in need of Divine attention or support.

https://masterangels.org/product/remote-healing/

“Done on the level of silence”? I.e. you fill in the online form, pay $250 and nothing happens except you’ve sent $250 to CMA’s coffers. This ‘product’ is of the most lazy, unethical kind imaginable. We are told a SFR is for:

  • health issues
  • start of new projects
  • child birth
  • marriage
  • business deals
  • any aspect of your life or that of your loved ones where special attention from the realm of the Divine and the Master Angels is desired or required to mitigate or bless those involved

But buyer beware, you have no recourse of complaint if things still don’t go your way:

When it comes to the process of blessings from God, the Master Angels, and Divine intervention, the outcome is always unpredictable and is deeply intertwined with the depth of one’s Karma, the severity of the problem, and the deservingness of the recipient. Since these factors are completely variable with every situation and every individual, there can be no guarantees of any specific outcome from Faith-based Silent Remote Healing Directed Prayers.

https://masterangels.org/remote-healing/

“Karmic Mitigation Blessings” are the same $250 concept in different words:

Reduce the burden of one’s karmic debts … when a positive event happens in one’s life there may still be remnants of bad karma that need to be paid off before success can happen. KMB is a way to smooth this experience. This blessing is good when getting married, being accepted to a new job, and other such events.

https://masterangels.org/product/mitigation/

So they’re saying whatever happens to you, good or bad, buy these “blessings”.

How generous of the angels to bestow upon believers gifts requring a $250 “donation” before they may or may not send their karmic blessings.

In the 28 March 2020 teleseminer, Hartnett says 15 KMBs were needed for a friend’s cancer. That’s $3750 total. I am sure the rank and file CMA members in similiar situations are encouraged to buy buy buy likewise. He didn’t mention if the KMBs had any effect however.

A key recurring theme in MJD’s teaching is “don’t think, just be”. I.e. don’t ask questions, don’t have doubts, instead have faith to accept his knowledge as given to you.

“Let yourself go down the road of accumulating divine truth, to quash your human negativity, your naturally doubting offensive mental capabilities, your belittling and the ego and everything like that. Just allow one divine truth to keep giving you that sweet bliss.”

MJD, 30 Oct 2019 teleseminar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czs87sZcxfE

MJD is saying doubting thoughts are offensive. If you doubt him you are offending him. He is saying divine truth as delivered by him is superior to human truth. He is saying ignorance is bliss.

“For the next hour and a half I’m gonna ask you to literally turn off that part of your brain that always thinks it knows best but ultimately doesn’t.”

Hartnett, 21 March 2020 teleseminar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhPK_8BuwQg

But the biggest conceit hidden in plain site are the boilerplate legal disclaimers on almost every piece of content they produce. It’s all over masterangels.org, their social media posts, newsletters and every item of audio/video they produce:

“Please keep in mind, we are not doctors or medical professionals. We are a diverse international congregation focused on Spiritual Development. Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or illness. We do not represent or warrant that any particular product or service is safe, appropriate or effective for you. If you have any health concerns, we strongly suggest consulting a qualified healthcare professional for diagnosis and treatment options.”

I’m not a legal expert but these disclaimers seem designed not for karmic mitigation but rather more earthly mitigation of CMA’s legal exposure if a purchaser takes issue their expensive non-purchase didn’t cure their cancer. CMA’s defence would be “You agreed to the disclaimer, we’re not to blame.”

No doubt any complainant would be discouraged from attending future workshops due to massive bad karma created from their negativity, or perhaps instead recommended to purchase a large number of SFRs and KMBs to cancel out their bad experience, if they’re gullible enough.

Graduates of the $10,000 Elite Development Course are a key part of CMA’s spiritual advancement structure. Really it is the Elites that can be considered the ‘members’ of the Church, the ones who have fully bought in to MJD’s teachings and way of life. No longer will you need to merely believe MJD, you can know the proof of MJD. We are told there are 400+ Elites. The supposed benefits that elevate you above the laity include:

  • Remote scanning ability of matter and energies
  • Special revelations for rapid remodelling of sensory pathways
  • Secret commands to work with the Masters for self-healing and assistance
  • Skills to kill viruses
  • Proof of God
  • A special lanyard

Yes you read that correctly, “Proof of God”.

“Our group and my elites have seen proof of God”

All that and a lanyard too!

Application for the Elite course includes some curious dietary guidelines like “no pork, no shellfish”.

By attending this 4 day course you too can begin to acquire superpowers MJD has, like detecting frequencies of bacteria and toxins in your food.

And this is merely the first stage of Elite. But not all are accepted. If your karmic balance isn’t right and are rejected you’re told to spend time (and therefore money) on “further development of maybe one more year of using the advanced techniques and being present on the tours”, continuing purchasing tools such as Prismatic Awareness then reapplying:

Just one more year and then you’ll be happy.

Hartnett mentions in 28 March 2020 teleseminar an attendee who afterwards “decided they were gonna sell this. They signed things that said they wouldn’t … it made us all feel bad. It’s not the way this knowledge is meant to be used.”

I’ve always felt a sure sign you’re in a cult is if you’re made to sign legal forms declaring not to share what you’ve learned. A sure sign the organisation are more interested in controlling access than spreading goodwill.

Did Jesus hand out non-disclosure agreement forms after his sermons and ‘miracles’? I imagine yes if Hartnett was one of his apostles:

“I’ve got some big plans for you Jesus, let’s take this thing global…”

A major question is why are no tours ever scheduled outside the USA? Not even for MJD’s home of Australia have CMA organized a single event.

In 2020 when his tours moved online and MJD became restricted like everyone else from travelling due to COVID-19 restrictions, why not do a virtual teleseminar tour outside USA? But the only tour dates are USA:

Why is there no information for non-USA residents? As I mentioned above, I have doubts he’s actually done anything outside USA ever. Remember, CMA claim to be a global organization. It’s false like everything related to MJD, aided by Hartnett.

I speculate if MJD is banned from working in Australia. Or chooses not to for tax reasons. Assuming he actually does live in Australia as claimed: there is no evidence he does. What are the rules for faith-healers and miracle workers around the world, I wonder.

Hartnett in particular is obsessed with all things “global” but he’s never gone global.

“Global Repair” is a new project from CMA started July 2020. A weekly YouTube stream of a pre-recorded MJD “guided meditation for love and healing” which includes a “Cosmic Infusion Blessing directly from the Master Angels”. The video played out is the same every broadcast but promoted as live.

This project is clearly in response to COVID-19 i.e. implying this mass meditation can heal the planet from the virus without explicity stating it. “Help universal love go viral” CMA declared. It didn’t go viral.

Thanks for reading to the end of this post. Subsequent posts will be less wide-ranging and focus on specific aspects of CMA/MJD. As best I can, I want to write about the completely fictional core beliefs and things I’ve discovered. I want to shine a light on those in the Church who create and encourage those beliefs.

I am not an easily persuaded person. I ask questions. I want to know the origin of things. I am the exact opposite of someone CMA would want to recruit.

I hope followers of MJD will ask questions about what they’re told and take some time to think about him as an outsider might. Ponder why he doesn’t want you to think with your rational brain.
