CMA have not posted on their social media pages since 13-14 December 2020. And no newsletter sent since December 19. An unusually long period of silence giving an impression of abandonment similiar to 30 June – 16 July 2020.
No seasonal posts as in previous years on December 25, 31 and January 1:
No events are scheduled virtual or otherwise, besides the Global Repair daily video replay on twitch. A wearisome 1-hour edit of “karmic repairs” and a 2010 teleseminar clip, to little attention. More on this below.
But nothing suggests abandonment more than the presence of a striking comment on CMA’s most recent Instagram post:
The “CULT” comment was made on December 28. I’d expect CMA to delete it upon sight but it remains today, January 5. Which is surprising bearing in mind CMA’s unconvincing assertions they’re not a cult. A rare example of a negative comment on CMA’s social media. How much longer will it remain now I’ve posted about it? Let’s see.
24 February 2021 update: after approximately 8-9 weeks the comment has now gone.
However, CMA have made one social media update worth discussing. Their Global Repair twitch channel is no longer @globalrepair but @lovegodslove. No explanation is given for this change. It has just 15 followers whereas @globalrepair has 107.
Unlike the old twitch channel, @lovegodslove states its CMA association, uses a CMA graphic and links to masterangels.org and CMA’s YouTube:
Santa Fe, 10 February 2018
The phrase “Love God’s Love” is not new. It first appeared on their social media 27 February 2018 promoting a $125 workshop video:
“During this groundbreaking event in Santa Fe on February 10th, 2018, Master John Douglas distributed some of the highest blessings ever given at a workshop. He explained that at some point in our many incarnations, we reach a nirvana moment where no further progress can be made until we love God’s love. He proceeded to create this effect in everyone who was in the room and on the live teleconference of the event. Within minutes, world consciousness shifted and changed for the better, and the Elite graduates in the room were able to scan the truth of that impact.”
Now I will reveal the discovery that Erin Maroney, McKayla’s mother, is also a serious devotee of MJD, praising him and attending his Elite Development courses just like her eldest daughter does.
The proof is in two videos on CMA’s YouTube channel.
My Miracle Testimonials
The first video is called “My Miracle Testimonials” posted 5 September 2018. Filming date and location are unknown but likely at a seminar, workshop or Elite course that year:
It consists of believers briefly describing MJD’s “miracle cures” of their various health issues after medicine failed to help. They all thank him for improving their lives. Emotive piano music plays and the editing cuts between the talking heads.
No names are given but three of the CMA higher-ups included are Jan Casebolt (“He brought me closer to God”), Debra Wagner (“I experienced the most amazing absolute cooling sensation”) and Richard Sarnat (“He basically waved it away within 15 seconds”).
At the 1:53 mark I recognised another face: Erin Maroney, McKayla’s mother. This was completely unexpected and quite a shock to me when I first saw it in November 2019.
“The very first night after seeing John I slept through the night for the first time in ten years.”
“It’s been the biggest blessing of my life. And I’m just an average everyday mom who will never be able to thank John enough.”
Leaving aside the question if Erin really is “an average everyday mom”, I don’t know how or exactly when McKayla and her mom were introduced to MJD, whether one introduced the other, or a third party introduced them both together. Reminder: McKayla claims he cured her of fibromyalgia, her testimony saying “What do you say to someone who has given you your life back. Who cures the incurable. Who gives and gives so gracefully. Who has time and time again blessed my life with miracles I can barely comprehend.”
The second video is simply titled “Gratitude Video” posted 24 October 2019. Unknown location, possibly CMA’s “chapel” on Heavenly Mountain.
We can infer from the introductory text (above) that Erin, like everyone shown, has joined CMA’s $10,000-per person Elite Development course. I assume Erin and McKayla attended together but notably McKayla isn’t shown or mentioned in this video, or any video I’ve seen.
“Gratitude Video” is very similiar to 2018’s “My Miracle Testimonials”. Emotive music plays as MJD, unseen, is aggrandized by a selection of his cult members. Many wear the CMA pendant.
Again no names are given. Various CMA higher-ups are included: Debra & Jeffrey Wagner, Jan Casebolt, Renata Maniaci. There is a brief but significant glimpse of Hartnett‘s youngest daughter Grace whom he says is an Elite graduate and can kill viruses.
The sentimentality and veneration of MJD has intensified since 2018. Praise and thanks are poured onto him for clearing “karmic debt” and miracle cures of infections, ulcerative colitis, liver parasites, cancer and so on. As if that wasn’t enough, he is lauded for their general spiritual development and “truly universal and comprehensive transformation in every single department and aspect of life”.
The only purpose of this video is to elevate the “humble” MJD personally; not CMA, not the “Master Angels”, not the alleged 400+ other Elites supposedly taught the same powers. Imagine having a video like this made about you. Imagine the ego boost. How would your friends react to it?
At 4:11 mark Erin appears and we get a quick and rather vague, generic thanks:
“Thank you Master John for leading me out of the darkness and showing me the way to the truth and the light.”
Erin and McKayla are not the only parent/child pair to follow MJD. There are examples of devotees passing on his teachings to their children, much like a Christian for example would indoctrinate a child with their own religion. I’ll write more about this in a later post. This was a factor in prompting me to finally create this blog, realizing there was not enough criticism of CMA/MJD’s exploitative, fabricated, deceitful world.
Most CMA members and MJD followers appear to be past middle age. This makes sense because that age group naturally have more chronic medical problems, age-related and recurrent. The kind of physical problems that come and go but never permanently go away, but MJD can exploit for years to persuade his duped followers the peaks and troughs of their pain align with the waves of their karmic balance.
Actual statistics aren’t available, but I’ve noticed women appear to outnumber men, at least within the circle of higher-ups and social media supporters of CMA.
Which gives me a suitable place to post this audio clip of Hartnett talking in typically grandiose and otherworldly style about CMA’s “most powerful women on the planet”:
“We have some of the most powerful women on the planet. That’s reality. They were on other planets and they came here. They’ve already learned a lot of these lessons, they’ve been given by John before… they already know a lot of this stuff without even learning it.”
A puzzling remark. I would be curious to hear about the time spent on other planets by these women, Hartnett’s knowledge of it and his implication MJD was with them. Need we add “space adventurer” to the list of his improbable achievements? Some of MJD’s claims are decidedly where no man has gone before.
Or perhaps this popular 1970s song below isn’t about aliens but is a prophecy of MJD?
In your mind you have capacities, you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think
With your mind you have ability to form
And transmit thought energy far beyond the norm
You close your eyes, you concentrate
“Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft”, The Carpenters
Joking aside, I suppose Hartnett was referring to the karmic notion of past lives. He connects it to MJD’s lessons somehow being retained over sucessive incarnations. Though I’m still unsure if he’s referring to their past lives existing on actual other planets. Mars? Venus? Delta Vega?
The fact McKayla and her mother are both deep into CMA shows how manipulative and persuasive the cult of MJD is to those in the orbit of their snake oil enterprise and its advocates. I highlight them because of the weight of evidence and to bring attention to the whole business. Elite Development attendees are banned from sharing the details of course contents. Though I expect most would be too embarrassed to speak about their “secret knowledge” to a non-CMA audience, lest the utter ridiculousness of it be thrown right back at them.
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:
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”:
It’s a print of the symbol encased in plastic.
The CMA chapel in Boone, North Carolina has it affixed to a wall overlooking the so-called “Maha Crystal”:
Here it is overlooking a seminar, late 2018:
So what’s the deal with the pendants?
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:
“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.
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.
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…
