Master John Douglas is Srjan Marjanovic

Exclusive story and details: please credit / link / hat-tip if reporting.

Master John Douglas’s real name is Srjan Marjanovic.

Srjan Marjanovic the man who hides from scrutiny while shamelessly scamming & exploiting thousands of Americans; through his Church of the Master Angels acquiring millions of dollars and channeling it to Australia for his enrichment. This man is Srjan Marjanovic.

Srjan Marjanovic

It’s immensely satisfying to finally put this information out there. I long had a hunch “John Douglas” was an alias. I expect most people have an inkling it sounds made-up. Multiple sources eventually told me his real name but I didn’t possess proof independently until later.

I held off publishing but now is the time. Below I set out the discovery, where it leads, and provide documented proof. It’s a very long post but it all ties together by the end.

Some Other Developments

The name is not to be confused with a Serbian musician, a physicist at University of Belgrade, a creative director in Louisiana or various others going by similar names Srdjan Marjanovic / Srđan Marjanović.

Let’s recap key MJD facts:

  • Claims he had a “clairvoyant activation” when 9 years old allowing him to see the entire spiritual realm and bio-electric fields around the body. Later acquiring further superpowers like remote sensing to detect frequency of molecules inside people, diagnosing the true cause of health conditions, and curing them via angelic beings.
  • Is a charlatan who operated largely without public criticism before this blog.
  • Sells $250 ‘blessings’, meditation CDs and other junk tools advertised to ‘repair’ the listener’s karma, conduct remote healing, protect believers from negative energies etc.
  • Controls his cult of the Church of the Master Angels, which has sent millions of $ to unspecified beneficiaries in “East Asia and the Pacific – Australia, Brunei, Burma, Cambodia” via Global SELF Foundation.
  • Waves his arms around pretending he’s directing angels in front of audiences brainwashed into accepting what he says and does is true.
  • Protected and enabled by narcissist Christopher Hartnett, chairman of CMA who privately tells other CMA higher-ups the “natural order” is to become a “multi-billion dollar enterprise”.
  • Has a legion of believers led to believe using his products for years balances their karma and thereby somehow cures their ills, with a particular fixation on the digestive tract.
  • Teaches $10,000 Elite Development courses at CMA’s annual September gathering of acolytes and recruits in Heavenly Mountain, North Carolina. Believers are told they will learn “proof of God” and acquire the same powers that allow MJD to know the true nature of matter and COVID-19.
  • Supposedly dedicates his time to answering followers’ prayer requests and meditating to advance his spiritual connection to the Master Angels. MJD’s followers are under the impression his personal life in Australia is simple, humble, thrifty, celibate, and spiritual. But as I will show for the first time, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Until now there have been scant biographical details about MJD’s life. CMA have provided next to nothing that is believable besides “John Douglas was born in Australia in 1971”.

The Truth of the Matter

Even having been informed of MJD’s real name didn’t prepare me for what I found in March this year.

The key turned out to be Watauga County Register of Deeds the official deposit of “deeds, deeds of trust, cancellations, powers of attorney, plats and other miscellaneous documents related to real property” for the county Heavenly Mountain is in. This database is free and public to any interested party.

I searched for Christopher Hartnett and found documents stretching back to the 1990s. Analyzing them all would need a dedicated post by a specialist. Here I’m interested in only one: a Trust Certification for Spirit Repair Headquarters Irrevocable Trust dated 17th February 2016, document #644785 to be precise.

The facts revealed in pages 2 & 3 are crystal clear to everyone:

Watauga County Register of Deeds document #644785, page 2. The names and addresses of Srjan Marjanovic a/k/a John Douglas, and Linda & Christopher Hartnett are seen.

Watauga County Register of Deeds document #644785, page 3. The names and signatures of Srjan Marjanovic a/k/a John Douglas, and Linda & Christopher Hartnett are seen.

Remarkable.

Srjan Marjanovic, a/k/a John Douglas

So there it is, finally. Absolute proof of my long held suspicion that Master John Douglas is merely an alias. A closely guarded secret, unknown to most everyone that knows him.

Watauga County Register of Deeds document #644785, composite.

Even CMA higher-ups like McKayla Maroney, Jan Casebolt, Richard Sarnat, Bridget Fonger and Jeffrey Wagner are likely unaware of his real name; obeying in ignorance the persona he’s claimed since 2006 to be: a “world renowned” healer called John Douglas. It’s my hope they all read this post, carefully and rationally.

But from today his dual lives of fake master of angels MJD and real-world Srjan Marjanovic will no longer be separate. “John Douglas” is a sham. His followers, friends and network of enablers, onboarders, wellness mentors and coaches of all stripes manipulated to believe there is any worth in his products and teachings must reckon their beliefs with reality.

I couldn’t believe what I had unexpectedly found. The big secret explicitly declared in a certified legal document in black & white, even signed by himself. Was this an oversight by Marjanovic and the Hartnetts back in 2016, did they not realize this is a public document?

Remember the document is freely available to anyone who knows where to look. It is not leaked, private or internal.

I wonder if the notary public Andrea Capua of di Santi Watson Capua Wilson was aware back in 2016 she was in the presence of a man claiming to talk to “The Lords of Karma” and able to direct angels using his hands, selling blessings and prayers to heal diseases and health complaints – if one’s karmic balance was in favor? I’m not sure which week of law school covers that.

This one document also conclusively proves CMA and Hartnett were lying through their teeth every time they said MJD was merely a “guest speaker” or that CMA and Global SELF Foundation were independent of any individual. As I have provided evidence of before. Of course, I already knew Hartnett was a serial liar from CMA teleseminars and podcasts. Both he and Marjanovic seem to be pathological liars. This is a legally binding document filed with Watauaga County and is irrefutable evidence Christopher Hartnett, his wife Linda Hartnett and Srjan Marjanovic/MJD have been joined at the hip.

Linda Hartnett and Srjan Marjanovic. Linda’s husband Christopher Hartnett is seen behind. Circa 2012.

Marjanovic’s given address uses the same PO Box 1520 as several companies of Hartnett: The Pink Emerald Company and his domain registration business Tedhens Limited. Also the apparently defunct Saint Hart Gallery run by the Hartnetts; purveyors of trinkets of dubious worth but priced at many thousands of dollars, and dishonestly proclaiming establishment in 1926:

https://www.sainthart.com

In 2017 the name of Spirit Repair Headquarters Irrevocable Trust was changed to 1200 HMD Irrevocable Trust. This refers to 1200 Heavenly Mountain Drive, the CMA ‘chapel’ close to Hartnett’s residence. The same year CMA International Foundation was founded and the chapel was refitted in gold paint and terrible art to become the centerpiece of the operation:

Christopher Hartnett preaching to the converted in his gilded chapel, Instagram 15 August 2017.

But what is an Irrevocable Trust, like the one set up by those three? What is this document saying besides MJD’s real name?

It’s outside the scope of this post not to mention outside my area of knowledge to explore technicalities of trusts, grantors, deeds, irrevocable vs revocable, and the like. I am sure there are more insights to uncover from the Watauga County database by someone fully understanding what they’re looking at.

But quoting from https://www.ultratrust.com/trust-fund.html :

  • The purpose of a trust is to create an “Artificial Legal Person” to protect, hold, and manage your private wealth for the benefit of your heirs.
  • The trustee of an “Irrevocable Trust” has sole discretion over trust assets.
  • An “Irrevocable Trust” gets the assets completely out of your (Grantor’s) name and in return you get complete asset protection, elimination of probate, elimination of estate or inheritance taxes, in certain cases a tax deduction for the assets contributed to the trust, and finally, under certain conditions other uncommon tax benefits not otherwise available.

And from https://www.policygenius.com/trusts/what-is-an-irrevocable-trust-and-how-does-it-work/ :

  • The trust is now the owner of the assets, which you’ll retitle or register in the trust’s name. The assets are no longer yours, and have no bearing on your wealth, the value of your estate, or your tax liability.
  • Irrevocable trusts also offer asset protection from future creditors and lawsuits. If the trust is properly structured and managed, you cannot be asked or forced to give up assets in certain irrevocable trusts in the event that you’re sued.
  • Reasons you might benefit from an irrevocable trust are:
    • You’re very wealthy and want to reduce your taxable estate
    • You are likely to be sued and need asset protection

So the trust appears to establish a legal ownership for the CMA chapel building and presumably other assets, away from the Global SELF Foundation and legally separate from the 3 individuals, to reduce taxes and legal liability. The beneficiaries of the Trust are not listed but trustees can also be beneficiaries. The Trust becomes the legal owner of 1200 Heavenly Mountain Drive – the chapel where ceremonies like handing out Elite Development graduation certificates once happened in better times for CMA:

Srjan Marjanovic AKA Master John Douglas flanked by Christopher & Linda Hartnett granting worthless certificates of Elite Development course graduation at 1200 Heavenly Mountain Drive. Facebook 2017. The self-issued certificates have no legal basis, unlike the trust certificate for Spirit Repair Headquarters Irrevocable Trust which carries the signature of all three.

Bottom line: it’s proof of an extremely close legal bond & financial relationship between the Hartnetts, Srjan Marjanovic, CMA and the Global SELF Foundation. The kind of formal relationship they’ve all pretended doesn’t exist.

I shall leave the Trust there because there is more to Srjan Marjanovic. The secret name has been proved, now I’ll see what further discoveries it leads to.

A Thorn By Any Other Name

I suspect Marjanovic first adopted the name John Douglas in 2006, there appears no prior history for the man. A dead giveaway something was amiss.

Why the fake name? Because it hides his real identity and is a friendlier, familiar name easier to digest. It is protection from eyes of the law and anyone delving into his past.

The contemptible nature of his business makes an alias preferable. The boldfaced lie of his new persona John Douglas could never belong to a realworld human with family, acquaintances and history and not be exposed.

I have not spoken to any associates of Srjan Marjanovic for this post. It’s a sign how much can be found without insider knowledge. I would like to see anyone who has ever personally known Srjan Marjanovic to speak up in your own time, tell your stories to the world however you’re comfortable.

Now that MJD and Srjan Marjanovic are toxic names, exposed forever as charlatans, he may pop up with another alias, spouting the same guff or hawking a new useless invention. Like a career criminal with a string of AKAs.

Following the Trail of Bread Crumbs

Googling “Srjan Marjanovic” currently shows about 16-22 results, none related to a 9-year old who had a “clairvoyant activation”. No mentions of angels, healing or anything of the sort. Confirming his origin story is bogus and an effort to never publicly associate the name with MJD (the Trust document being the only exception found to date and is not indexed by Google.)

I feel that will soon change.

Only around 4 of those 22 are the Marjanovic of interest, ignoring duplicates. No images of him show up.

Extract of Google search “Srjan Marjanovic”. Images are blacked out because unrelated.

Other search engines have been less useful, often merging results with similiarly named people. Leave a comment if you find anything important I’ve missed. What I present here is the majority of what I’ve found and where it led me. For clarity I’ve arranged things differently to how the research actually happened. There is a diagram later to help understand the connections.

Srjan Marjanovic the Artist

The first discovery is more a curiosity than anything substantial.

Evidently a young Srjan contributed to a collection of children’s art titled All About Us published for the 1978 Commonwealth Games, Edmonton, Canada.

His piece is described “Abstract, Tempera, Srjan Marjanovic, Age Six, Camperdown, Australia, 1978” :

University of Guelph’s McLaughlin Library catalog entry, via exlibrisgroup.com via snaccooperative.org via worldcat.org

I don’t know for sure this 6-year old Srjan Marjanovic is the one and same who would grow up to be MJD but it all matches up. Camperdown is part of Sydney, Australia. If his 1971 year of birth is correct (which appears to be so) he would indeed be aged 6 approx 1977/78 (no doubt the piece of art would’ve been created a year before the book was published.)

A copy of All About Us is kept in the University of Guelph’s McLaughlin Library. Perhaps elsewhere too. Alas a digital copy is not available but must be inspected in person.

Would a reader be able to visit McLaughlin Library (Ontario, Canada) and get a scan of the relevant page? A longshot perhaps but the abstract tempura art created by the 6-year old MJD may be a rare & intriguing insight into his formative mind.

Srjan Marjanovic the Businessman

Turning to the more significant Google hits for his name, we see the Australian government’s Business Register (ABR) turns up a sole trader operating in Bellevue Hill in Sydney. His Australian Business Number (ABN) is 44959514985.

I haven’t found what KEYSHINE was. Few other details are provided. Could this be our Srjan of the Trust Certification? It seems possible. At least it shows someone goes by that name in Australia.

To see what else this ABR database could tell me, I searched for anything potentially connected to Srjan. MJD’s pre-CMA enterprise Spirit Repair showed up something that got my attention: SPIRIT REPAIR AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (ABN 39158642507):

Searching https://abr.business.gov.au (PTY LTD = Proprietary Limited)

Clicking through gives:

It says Spirit Repair Australia is the previous name for some business called “Consolidated Assembly Foundation”. Sounds like a manufacturing company. ABR gives no details of the company directors or owners. This looked to be going nowhere.

But the ASIC (Australian Securities & Investments Commission) link gives a new registry page that offers documents for purchase:

But it turned out there was no need to make a purchase, as tempted as I was. A Google search for this mysterious company, possibly connected to Srjan/MJD or possibly not, leads to a page on Dun & Bradstreet Business Directory called Religious Organizations Companies in Bondi, New South Wales, Australia. OK that sounds promising.

Clicking through to D&B’s page for Consolidated Assembly Foundation showed more details than ABR had:

Note the employee count and revenue are modelled, not actual figures.

Well what do we see? An exact address listed and a Srjan Marjanovic as Key Principal. I’ve partly hidden the address so I’ve invented a code for it throughout – RB1. We’ll be seeing it again.

So this Consolidated Assembly Foundation in Sydney is run by someone with same name as MJD’s real name, and its previous company name is MJD’s old business Spirit Repair. This was starting to add up. But I couldn’t be sure it was the same man. Note Consolidated Assembly Foundation changed their name summer 2017 and the business is still active.

There’s little else about Consolidated Assembly Foundation without buying documents – if anyone’s up for sending me copies I think much could be gleaned.

Now I’ll investigate the second significant Google result for “Srjan Marjanovic”.

Srjan Marjanovic the Resident

Incredibly, Google found the agenda of a Woollahra Municipal Council (Sydney) planning application meeting held 17th Febraury 2015.

Here’s an extract showing residents lodging objections to the construction plans of a new house next door:

The address given for Mr Garth Walter Fleeton & Srjan Marjanovic is RB1 – same as Consolidated Assembly Foundation. So the Marjanovic of Consolidated Assembly Foundation (Spirit Repair Australia until 2017) is certainly the same Marjanovic residing with the previously unknown Mr Fleeton. Discounting the unlikely possibility there are two men with that name at same address.

Their submissions to the panel concerned the planned neighbouring building’s negative impact on “privacy, overshadowing, sense of enclosure” for RB1. The building was eventually approved, with some alterations.

Ironic how concerns for privacy led to their names being on this public document. I suspect Marjanovic and Fleeton didn’t realize residents names would appear in it. But it’s a key to discovering a lot more.

The Bellevue Hill vicinity of RB1, from Google:

Prices below have been converted from Australian dollars to US dollars at current exchange rate.

RB1 was last sold March 2013 for $1.6million.

RB1’s current value estimates from property websites:

$3.8million domain.com.au & realestate.com.au

$3.5million aupropertyreport.com

$3million propertyvalue.com.au

sitchu.com.au says of Bellevue Hill:

The grandeur and beauty of sprawling estate homes is what defines this prestigious neighbourhood. Bellevue Hill is where Sydney’s high rollers retreat to, to bask in the serenity of this quiet hillside suburb.

Quietly perched on the hillside, Bellevue Hill’s network of wide leafy streets and luxury sports cars set the scene for what lies behind unassuming gated properties – grand estate homes some of which have the largest land holdings in the Eastern Suburbs.

From the big screen to big business, some of Australia’s top executives, entertainers and athletes call Bellevue Hill home. An area that is renowned for its old money, Bellevue Hill is brimming with established families who hold on tightly to their homes in this exclusive Eastern Suburbs neighbourhood.

https://sitchu.com.au/sydney/eastern-suburbs/bellevue-hill/

Australia’s richest man Kerry Packer was one such resident at the time of his death.

But still no proof this particular Srjan Marjanovic is the same one as MJD.

Let’s search for his housemate Garth Walter Fleeton and see where it leads.

Garth Walter Fleeton

Googling the name doesn’t show too many results. Like Srjan Marjanovic it’s a rare, practically unique name. And also like Srjan Marjanovic there are just a handful of photos out there.

It appears as the display name of an Instagram account @theodore_diamond with over 3000 photos of vintage ladies fashion. Currently it has 630 followers and is following an incredibly high number of accounts: 5993. There is also a @theodorediamond account with far fewer posts but similiar content, seemingly no longer used.

@theodore_diamond Instagram, December 2019.

The screenshot above is from December 2019. The www.theodorediamond.com.au bio link and indeed the website itself have since been removed. But here’s a sample of what it looked like back then:

www.theodorediamond.com.au December 2019, homepage.

www.theodorediamond.com.au December 2019, ‘Our Story’.

“Theodore Diamond is the Brain Child of Garth Walter Fleeton costume designer and stylist. The creation of beautiful and stylish work attire which can go from night to day in one step.

Garth’s background in fashion and design started in his twenties when working for Opera Australia and the Australian Ballet for 15 years.

For the past two decades Garth has strengthen [sic] his knowledge of garment construction and design while understanding a females perception of fashion.

The Theodore Diamond label never got off the ground. But the associated Instagram account strangely remains very active posting nothing except old fashion photos since at least 2016.

There is just a crumb of evidence of Fleeton’s career as a fashion designer.

https://www.garthwalterfleeton.com is the site of a ‘couturier’ evidentally with an interest in corsets and other vintage fashion. No updates more recent than 2014, some years before Garth’s unsuccessful rebrand as Theodore Diamond. There is a longer biography of Garth on the 2006 version of the site at Internet Archive.

Example https://www.garthwalterfleeton.com page

The twitter icon on most pages of the site links to an account @cleverfitbra whose most recent tweet was in 2015:

Note the display name TheodoreDiamond, the bio link www.theodorediamond.com.au and the location Sydney. The tweets are mainly vintage fashion photos. All affirming the connection between garthwalterfleeton.com and Theodore Diamond.

“CleverFit” was Garth’s invention of a “brassiere with individually adjustable inflatable air pockets located in the cups, that receive air from a pump, so to enhance a wearer’s cleavage and shape.”

Believe it or not.

CleverFit seems never to have reached production. Why the associated twitter account is named for Garth’s other failed brand Theodore Diamond is curious. Almost as if Theodore Diamond was used as an alias for Garth. I don’t know the origin of the name Theodore Diamond but I have a hunch there is a deeper connection to other enigmatic ‘Theodores’ I’ve mentioned elsewhere.

But is this fashion designer Garth Walter Fleeton / “Theodore Diamond” the same one living with a Srjan Marjanovic at RB1?

Yes.

This is most easily proven from trademark records :

Trademarks owned by Garth Fleeton.

Clicking through, the owner of the Theodore Diamond trademark and his address is revealed:

‘Theodore Diamond’ trademark. Note description of goods & services, and date.

The blacked-out address is – you guessed it – “RB1” as found previously, proving beyond all reasonable doubt the Garth living with Srjan Marjanovic on the 2015 planning meeting agenda is the same Garth of Theodore Diamond’s Instagram/website/twitter.

For surety I’ll prove it a second way. Theodore Diamond’s business entry on asic.gov.au :

https://connectonline.asic.gov.au search

The blacked-out address is again RB1. And what is “Lifestyle Enterprises International Pty Ltd”? Looking up the registry information for the Theodore Diamond domain gives:

https://whois.auda.org.au search for theodorediamond.com.au

These two screenshots together show the Garth of “RB1” and the Garth of “Theodore Diamond” are one and the same. A fuller dive into Lifestyle Enterprises International will have to wait for another day.

The Door Unlocked

Remember I haven’t proved yet the Srjan Marjanovic of the Trust Certification is the same Srjan Marjanovic at RB1.

I wrote an extensive post about Australian Digestive Excellence and Audri & Jim Lanford’s deep involvement with MJD/CMA. Briefly, it was a health drink MJD and the Lanfords created, sold & promoted via CMA and other outlets. The owner company was “Excellent Purity”.

In 2016 Excellent Purity Corp made a single public filing with the US government’s Securities & Exchange Commision – click the link in the table to load details of the filing.

The document contains quite a surprise, below the entries for the Lanfords:

A John Douglas of Australia is the 3rd executive officer. His given address is RB1. Not a PO Box or someplace in USA but the exact address I’ve been discussing. This SEC document is practically a missing link telling us John Douglas/MJD lives at RB1. And the Trust Certification told us John Douglas/MJD is called Srjan Marjanovic. So excluding the chance there are two different men called Srjan Marjanovic living at the same address, John Douglas/MJD of CMA does indeed reside at RB1 with Garth.

This diagram shows the four principal facts combine to reveal the aliases residing at “RB1”:

But there is another discovery which completes a link from RB1 back to MJD.

Among the almost 6000 accounts followed by Garth’s @theodore_diamond Instagram are two that speak volumes:

“Theodore Diamond” follows “John Douglas”.

And *drum roll* …

“Theodore Diamond” follows CMA.

Garth not only follows CMA but even MJD’s old abandoned single-post account @johndouglas1707 with 70 followers.

This shows Garth is absolutely aware who he’s living with. Is Garth a believer in MJD and a member of CMA? I don’t know. Has MJD been accompanied ever by Garth on his CMA visits to the USA? I don’t know. CMA have in the past mentioned “Gabriel, Master John’s dedicated assistant”:

I don’t have a photo of Srjan & Garth together so here’s Srjan and Gabriel instead.

Lest anyone wonder if this is all ancient history no longer current: Garth most recently ‘liked’ a CMA post only earlier this month:

CMA Instagram 3rd December 2021

Let’s see what we can find about Srjan through his friend Garth.

Garth & Srjan & John

Two photos of Garth Walter Fleeton dated circa 2010. Like Srjan there seems no recent ones to be found.

Garth’s Facebook:

His Facebook now evidently unused is similiar to the Theodore Diamond Instagram: thousands of vintage fashion photos, architecture, interior design, classic Hollywood.

The intro panel confirms various things already found but also states he’s in a relationship, albeit undated.

No mention of a ‘Srjan’ that I can find but there is a ‘John’:

16 June 2013 Facebook

Garth that is freakin’ hilarious. I want to see you and John modelling that in [RB1]” writes a friend on a photo of unknown models.

1 Sep 2012 Facebook

Have the most fabulous time – and lots of love to John too. Love you guys” writes a friend ahead of a Los Angeles/Las Vegas vacation for Garth & ‘John’.

I think it’s interesting, based on this evidence, not even Garth’s friends use or probably even know John’s real name is Srjan. At least this appears the case back around 2012-2013.

10 Sep 2012 Facebook, “Boobies ferragamo’s”, West Hollywood. One of the few original photos posted by Garth during the USA vacation.

January 2013.

The comment above shows an interest in property development. This will be relevant later.

Waxilicious

Another Facebook find of interest, from 2009:

Mobile Wax +Tan

Waxilicious provides men and women with a professional level of body maintenance … in the privacy of your own home.

Call Garth on …

We can also arrange for Tanning Parties for you and your friends – just ask!

Waxilicious was another of Garth’s shortlived businesses years before Theodore Diamond. I’m guessing it was started before he met Srjan Marjanovic.

(Not to be confused with other businesses of same name that show up on Google.)

“Specialising in male Brazilian waxing”

Waxilicious is still listed on hotfrog.com.au :

Welcome to “WAXILICIOUS” we are a proudly owned and operated in-house & mobile waxing & tanning service located in the Eastern Suburbs Rose Bay area of Sydney Australia.

https://www.hotfrog.com.au/company/1072217550303232/waxilicious/rose-bay/skin-and-scalp-services-and-products

Waxilicious has a twitter page from 2009, though has zero tweets:

“Professional Waxier, Shaver, Clipper, Tanner based in Paddington NSW!! Why not give me a message for my email pricelist. All areas of the body waxed……”

Paddington is an area of Sydney very close to Bellevue Hill. I’m reminded it’s where MJD said he was operating from back in his Spirit Repair days:

www.spirit-repair.com Internet Archive (2007)

One on one sessions with private clients”

Who would have thought MJD’s “Healing Energy” service would have so much in common with Garth’s waxing service?

I wonder how the two men first crossed paths.

One more Waxilicious thing. A sample of the 44 accounts @waxilicious twitter is following:

@MariahCarey @gayguys2 @Advice_from_gay @AskTheGayGuys @JurijsPhoto @turkgays @turkgays_net

@Gays @videosgays @GLNWMSU @GaysGoneWild @5BlackGays @0546762200 @ilove_5_a_gays @thegays

Quite a few of these accounts are following @waxilicious back. I can’t find any history of @waxilicious ever sending a tweet.

Theodore’s Interests

@waxilicious’ twitter followings inspired me to take another look at @theodore_diamond’s 5000+ followings.

A sample:

@nextgaything @seancodyxofficial etc

@mantrapclub @australiangayskiweek @massagemale etc

@biminibabes @itstayce @butthread etc

Another following (and follower) is Aliky Kouroupis, a major longtime Master John Douglas associate, enabler and promotor I’m yet to write about. Though like many, she’s been publicly very quiet about him recently.

Lilydale House

Returning to properties, a Google result for Garth Fleeton shows a paywalled Daily Telegraph article from 2019:

If anyone can send me this article please do. But in any case, Google provides some public extracts for free:

Two apartments inside the renovated nurses quarters of the former Marrickville hospital [Sydney] have each sold for $2.5 million.

Fashion designer Garth Fleeton and his partner had splashed out on the top-floor apartment before going “all-in” on historic Lilydale House …

The renovated Lilydale House. Mr Fleeton and his partner will rent out each apartment for $1400 a week from late October.

“Fashion designer Garth Fleeton and his partner”. I’m sure everyone will agree beyond all reasonable doubt this is the same Garth I have written about and has resided with Srjan Marjanovic.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REnXMWTbOZM

Imagine having MJD as your landlord. I wonder if his $199 “Home Harmony Device” is a requirement of the rental agreement?

“It will keep the air around you clear by killing various organisms, such as nano bacteria, viruses, mold and fungus …” (obviously this is a total fraud – do not purchase) CMA Instagram 31st May 2017.

CMA higher-up Renata Maniaci with her Home Harmony Device behind her.

A $5 million (= US$3.6million) property purchase is quite the accomplishment for a “fashion designer” and other enterprises of unremarkable renown.

It seems being friends with the man who’s secretly MJD has been good financially for Garth.

A quote from the definitive CMA exposé on Reddit:

The elite workshop originated because John wanted to buy a very expensive house in Australia. He needed money fast to make the purchase and so they scrambled to put the elite workshop together, totally suckering those initial attendees into thinking it was some divine course that had been gifted by the angels. I can’t believe they pulled it off and have continued to find people willing to spend $10,000. But when the angels instruct John to travel abroad to exotic destinations and buy million-dollar properties and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating them….well…..that money has to come from somewhere.

Reddit

The purchase of Lilydale House by Garth Fleeton and unnamed ‘partner’ confirms this detail of the exposé even if not the specific “very expensive house” referred to. Maybe it was the purchase of “RB1” or another property.

Elite graduates – this is why MJD wanted your $10,000.

Maybe Garth lives wilfully ignorant about the source of money.

Who knew Lilydale House (rent US$1000/week) was one of the “alternative health technologies and solutions to eliminate physical and physiological challenges and nurture the self development, self awareness and self-sufficiency” the Global SELF Foundation claim they donate CMA’s revenue to?

Lastly is this review Garth Fleeton gave about their Building Manager for Lilydale House:

https://www.pacificbmg.com.au/testimonials/

“We purchased the two premier apartments in the historical Lilydale House at the Marrick & Co development to add to our property portfolio in 2019 …”

Note the use of plural pronouns ‘we’ & ‘our’.

Why Fleeton twice went public about their purchase of Lilydale House is a mystery to me. But the testimony above implies Lilydale House is just one part of their portfolio. Property development and real estate investment appears to be far more succesful than his earlier pursuits.

Ironic the millions of dollars of income CMA obtained from thousands of Americans made to think buying prayers and karmic mitigation nonsense will cure their health issues has ended up buying a former hospital’s nurses home on the other side of the world.

Top & Bottom Stories

Multiple property renovation plans submitted to Woollahra Municipal Council give an insight into Garth & Srjan’s continued ownership of the RB1 residence.

This development application was filed in 2020 and approved February 2021:

From Woollahra Municipal Council’s public and free Development Application database

AU$583,000 = US$415,000. A considerable sum to spend on home improvements I’m sure you’ll agree.

The plan consists of adding a whole new level onto the single-story building plus other interior & exterior alterations. This would necessitate living elsewhere while the work was underway this year. Amendments to the plans were submitted and approved as recently as September 2021 (aside: the same month MJD’s most devoted were gathered in Heavenly Mountain for the Elite courses.)

Extract showing addition of top story etc:

Detail:

To my surprise we see “John Douglas + Garth Walter Fleeton” listed as the clients. The first time seeing Garth’s name alongside Srjan’s full CMA alias.

Yet elsewhere Srjan has signed off the RB1 plans using his legal name and signature, being the property’s owner:

Srjan’s handwritten name and signature, dated 14th October 2020. Fleeton’s signature does not appear in the documents I’ve seen.

Srjan’s signature matches that on the 2016 Trust Certification, proving in a satisfyingly straightforward and traditional way they’re the same person.

There’s an amusing detail in the plans, about replacing an exterior deck due to “major termite damage”:

Larger image of the damage.

What a pity Master John’s property has been infected with termites!

Perhaps it’s karma.

Family Ties

Ancestry.com has an intriguing entry that implies a closer connection between Fleeton and Marjanovic. I’m not knowledgeable in this field, if you have a full ancestry.com account and understand what the below entry is saying, please leave a comment:

Srjan was born 1971 and Garth 1973, from what I’ve found.

More could be shown but at expensive of clarity. A clear separation of US & Australian interests is evident.

I may make a new version in future as more information comes to light.

Final Thoughts

I’d always had an inkling John Douglas wasn’t his real name: a hunch that explained the lack of confirmed biography. To claim the things he claims but not to have any reliable, third-party reports and stories about him is surprising to say the least. It did not sit right how he could appear in 2006 boasting of his incredible supernatural ‘abilities’ and a worldwide clientbase including heads of state, but with no prior information to be found. It’s a sign of healer-charlatans.

But obtaining hard proof seemed out of reach.

Srjan Marjanovic got way too confident with the act, especially teaming up with the self-aggrandizing J.P. Morgan-wannabe Christopher Hartnett who no doubt promised they’d make millions together. By 2018 with a popular Olympic star on their books, Marjanovic and Hartnett were comfortable enough to post videos on YouTube of his absurd seminars, forgetting the world was watching.

Then COVID-19 came in 2020. The man once promoted as “the man who can kill a virus” was plainly unable to kill this virus, dealing a critical blow to MJD’s credibility in the eyes of even his most devout believers.

And now we know his real name, it shows up as a lie what Christopher Hartnett said only earlier this year:

Master John later changed his surname to Douglas because his reputation as a healer was such that “he would come home and have eight people waiting [at his residence, hoping to be healed]. He wanted a private life.”

NY Post 9 Oct 2021

In fact, “Master John” had changed not only his surname but his first also and had zero reputation as a healer before the name change. Absolutely nothing to show a legitimate reason for a new identity. The story of people waiting at his house reminds me of the ridiculous story Hartnett spun about MJD being surrounded at airports by crowds wanting healing.

Hartnett is impotent and has no credibility. It’s time for Marjanovic to stop relying on him for defence.

Does having an alias allow Marjanovic to sleep at night? How he justifies the lies, manipulation and cult built around him? A separate person from his real self. “It wasn’t me that did all that, it was John Douglas! A character I invented. I did nothing wrong.”

His secrecy is deliberate of course, hiding from inspection, investigation and accountability.

Finding the Trust Certificate and the rest is a testament to the power of freely available information, the reason the world wide web was created.

Just the kind of information Srjan Marjanovic doesn’t want John Douglas’s followers to know exists.

Free information sources like the ones MJD says his own “secret knowledge” supplants: that “Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Apple-fed superiority” are doomed to crumble when confronted with his supposed proof of God and the soul.

It’s said that “News is what somebody does not want you to print” and I expect that applies to several things in this post.

If nothing else, the Trust Certificate alone should be of interest to those not only with an interest in Master John Douglas and the Church of the Master Angels but of any individual who pretends to have otherworldly access and knowledge.

This post has been long partly because I think it’s important to lay out details of sources and my method, unlike the practices of Master John Douglas and any number of similiar gurus who pull their “sacred” and “precious CMA knowledge” out of thin air.

Some words for Srjan Marjanovic’s remaining believers. The Trust Certificate is not an opinion or “trying to spoil someone else’s blessings, someone else’s hard work, someone else’s natural right to be successful” (MJD quote.) It’s a legal document signed by himself and filed with a public body. There’s no defence against what this document shows and where it led me. Marjanovic pretends to be in touch with angels to get people to give money to his church to fund his and Garth’s property developing and real estate investments. I guess many won’t want to hear that; but truth sets you free over time.

Thankyou to those people who wish to be anonymous but inspired and assisted my research.

Some Other Developments

Since my last post in June…

McKayla Maroney

McKayla discussed CMA and Master John in an Elle interview. “She says she hasn’t been to a Master John workshop since the start of the pandemic” – that wasn’t true then and it’s even more untrue now. She spent almost entirety of September 2021 in Heavenly Mountain for Elite Development Course activities. McKayla didn’t come close to revealing in Elle the depth of her continued involvement in CMA.

McKayla Maroney appears emboldened following that extended stay in Heavenly Mountain at the Hartnett residence. She has promoted a fellow Elite’s company: Miriam Thom‘s Club Psora whose mission is to “heal chronic skin conditions”.

But Club Psora has a bigger mission:

Miriam created club psora to provide for others what was missing for her: a safe container offering access to specialists, resources, personal stories and community discourse.

Above all, her mission is to facilitate a roadmap for people living with skin conditions as they navigate their own path of self-healing. She believes that together, we can challenge the prognosis of an “incurable” diagnosis.

https://www.clubpsora.com/our-founder

Club Psora is connected to multiple CMA higher-ups and likely operates as an affiliate or funnel to CMA itself for selected members.

But McKayla’s interview for Club Psora was nothing compared to her Instagram post earlier this month:

Like a MJD seminar taster, hitting many of his ideas and keywords: energy, alignment, reaction, God’s plan, love, soul, invest, karma, opposition, growing. Note the friendly introduction before the green heart: readers unsusceptible to eventual funneling towards MJD are gently filtered out. Then the MJD-like patter begins.

Very easy to imagine the mind-numbing intonation of Srjan Marjanovic reading it.

On Instagram story videos McKayla recently said “I think I have bad skin karma” and gave advice such as “gut bacteria is really important for your skin health“.

Anyone referred by McKayla to a mentor, coach or ‘specialist’ of any kind: be cautious you are entering a CMA funnel.

Pat Buchanan

In the summer, Master John believer Pat Buchanan set up a Send Pat Buchanan to Divine Spiritual Training fundraiser for September’s Elite Development course $10,000 weekend:

Note the $501 total raised (as of 1st December 2021).

She wrote she has little money. And yet she has been encouraged to think it would be best for her to spend $10,000 on Master John’s “very special training.” Also note she says she did have the funds in 2014 but wasn’t “accepted”. This is MJD’s mindgames technique to grow believer’s emotional and financial investment over years, building to one day being “ready” and “grateful” for Elite acceptance. Since 2014 she may have spent more than $10,000 being strung along by Master John.

The full page is worth reading for a better understanding of exactly why a dedicated CMA member wants to begin Elite training and what benefits they’re led to believe will come from it. The same course CMA itself say in the application small print is “of no benefit whatsoever.”

There are multiple levels of Elite offering ever more “advanced training” to acquire preposterous “super abilities” like MJD’s own “remote scanning of matter” etc.

The most interesting part of Pat’s fundraiser is the failure to raise the required funds didn’t stop her attending the course in Heavenly Mountain. A mysterious benefactor evidentally granted her a fully funded placement:

“I got my huge blessing and I’m receiving my miracle! With deep gratitude to the divine creator, and to all beings, angels, bodhisattvas, light workers, and helpers who are part of my miracle.”

20 August 2021 GoFundMe update.

“My initial training is complete and I am so blessed! I am deeply grateful to all who helped me get to this day and to all who support me on this divine path.

I welcome continuing gifts so I may further my spiritual development throughout this year.

16 September 2021 GoFundMe update.

Her mysterious benefactor? I strongly suspect and am led to believe – McKayla Maroney.

Pulp Fiction

Volume Two of Medical Miracles by Elite graduate Richard Sarnat was published in October. CMA propaganda completely devoid of worth.

NY Post

A CMA/McKayla article by NY Post published in October.

Divine Mother Foundation (EIN 86-3743675)

The Hartnetts and Srjan Marjanovic have started a new “charitable organization” Divine Mother evidentally to replace the Global SELF Foundation:

The Divine Mother Foundation is the suggested way for CMA’s donors to directly and concretely assist others in need of basic necessities and provide a direct practical avenue for spiritual aspirants to pay homage to the universal Divine mothers and simultaneously uplift women in need of basic fundamentals around the globe.

Through guidance from the Master Angels and the direct help of the angelic realm, CMA wants to support humanity on all levels.

No details of the unnamed “three international orphanages” and other benefactors, no surprise. A screed of misdirection like Global SELF Foundation. Vague mission statement, no transparency, no names or oversight and not deserving of a single donation. Unless you want to help fund Srjan Marjanovic and Garth Fleeton’s lifestyle and next real estate project.

Mother Lover

Another new site I want to bring to attention is the creepy http://www.mymother.com

It’s goal is “the ultimate digital celebratory tribute website, data depository, master photo vault, safety deposit box, and memory keeper for all things your mom.”

It’s gone around CMA’s network of higher-ups, many of whom are much less dedicated to CMA than they used to be.

MyMother.com presents itself with no affiliation with any group, principle or person, thus it potentially appeals to anyone who comes across it. The project casts the widest possible net since everybody on the planet has or had a mother.

MyMother.com and it’s Facebook page hide the CMA association but it’s revealed through the domain’s registration info (Hartnett’s Tedhens Limited) plus is listed on CMA’s new umbrella site www.divine.com which has the bizarre tagline “The Heart of the Inner Net”.

Linda Hartnett seen with a framed photo of Srjan Marjanovic, a/k/a John Douglas. Circa 2021.

There are 8.1 billion cherished mothers represented on Earth at this moment.

With super encrypted servers on four continents, all her information remains secure, and the easy-to-use family portal has been built to last for at least 10 generations to come.”

Laughable even by Hartnett’s standards.

8.1 billion mothers? Built to last for at least 10 generations? The domain is only registered until July 2022.

Sigh.

Don’t give MyMother.com your details. Avoid and stay away.

Film Review: The Enigma of a Dream

This is Grace Hartnett, a New York-based filmmaker. This post is about her short film The Enigma of a Dream released earlier this month (May 5th.)

First some relevant background.

She is the youngest daughter of Christopher Hartnett the CEO, Chairman and sometime self-styled “senior pastor” of CMA and its ‘charitable’ donations arm Global SELF Foundation.

I mentioned her previously in ‘Like Mother Like Daughter’ because she’s briefly seen in the MJD-lovefest Gratitude video on CMA’s YouTube channel.

According to her father Grace is an Elite Development graduate of CMA and has virus-killing capabilities.

Her official bio however is absent of those claims:

Grace Hartnett is a multidisciplinary artist who primarily focuses on film direction and set design, with a concentration on still life environments.

A delicate balance between visual simplicity and carefully crafted chaos, Grace’s work is informed by a fascination with human behavior, organic forms, and non-linear movement within time and space. By balancing surreal sculptural elements with the exploration of the human psyche, she delivers complex, cerebral experiences to the viewer.

https://gracehartnett.com/about

She attended the Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa and then Maharishi International University graduating 2013. She’s worked as a stylist and interned for the David Lynch Foundation, a transcendental meditation advocacy charity. Therefore like her father she is well-versed in Maharishi and his TM system that MJD/CMA borrows from and exploits.

The CMA chapel and Hartnett family home in Heavenly Mountain, North Carolina were built on Maharishi Vastu Architecture principles.

A key similarity between TM and becoming one of MJD’s ‘Elites’ is learning ‘secret’ knowledge and processes not permitted to be shared to non-paying outsiders. These similarities exist to extract recruits from the existing TM community already accepting of familiar “paths to enlightment” with the added attractive lie of MJD saying he can talk to angels and cure intractable health problems.

Christopher Hartnett has claimed it was Maharishi himself who personally recommended he follow and support MJD during Hartnett’s supposed worldwide search for healers for his longstanding medical problems. This cannot be verified but it forms a kind of spiritual continuity from Maharishi to his successor MJD, common practice in the guru industry to establish credentials.

In those days, circa 2012-2017 Christopher Hartnett liked to push him as a new-improved Maharishi. The below 2017 Fairfield Life group discussion is a valuable public record:

https://www.mail-archive.com/fairfieldlife@yahoogroups.com/

Christopher Hartnett and Grace at her graduation from Maharishi International University, Fairfield, Iowa (2013)

Two years after graduating Grace was enjoying another graduation celebration in the form of traditional CMA fireworks display on Heavenly Mountain, likely for newly graduated Elites such as herself:

Grace Hartnett Instagram, 27 November 2015. “All the thanks” presumably directed to MJD.

To my knowledge Grace is yet to speak publically about being an Elite and what it means to her. Unlike her friend McKayla Maroney she’s never had a secret twitter account to spread her devotion to MJD. In lieu of her own testimony, here are the words of another Elite:

“I met Master John Douglas in 2005 and have been the recipient of many cumulative blessings and miracles. Words can’t express my gratitude and love for MJD and what he, the Master Angels and Elite Development have contributed to my life.

The Elite Development course has accelerated my spiritual path in unbelievable ways. It’s resulted in a continuous chain of miracles and strengthened my divine nature, provided me with a step-change evolution in my overall path.

The ability to audit oneself, your path and to faciliate healing and blessings so you can be the author of your own being.

Elite Development through its sacred knowledge and what Master John teaches has built a huge global loving community of divine beings here on Earth and beyond who are making an impact on themselves and world in general.

Over the years Master John has blessed me with so many miracles I can’t even count. After Elite Development the miracles got quicker, bigger, resolved faster with more grace and with more gratitude.

Since Elite Development, Master John has healed so many things for me. Lyme Disease; saved me from dying from bilateral pneumonia sepsis; cured my genetic immune disorder; resolved potential uterine cancer; repaired my failed adrenal gland. And most recently helped me through an intense period where my entire immediate family of 3 all died in 168 days.

I’m confident Elite Development provided me with new skills to cope, transcend and evolve.

The course for me was very altering. It’s a huge blessing. For me it’s like I’m on a fasttrack to Heaven but I’m experiencing it on this plane.

This community of people who work with Master John … there’s a huge and deep sense of general love and acceptance among these people.”

‘Jill’

“The community of people” she’s talking about are her fellow Elites and CMA higher-ups: the army of self-titled mentors; life-trainers; energy healers; wellness coaches; spiritual gurus of all kinds working to funnel recruits with money and loyalty into CMA. The cult of MJD.

Here’s Grace pictured with other Elite students laying hands on the Maha Crystal at the CMA chapel, Heavenly Mountain:

At the CMA chapel with a friend. Note the blue and yellow Elite lanyards. Undated photo.

Christopher Hartnett guested on CMA higher-up Bridget Fonger’s Superhero of Love podcast in 2019. He talked about his family being healed by MJD and taking his Elite course:

Superhero of Love episode #69. 12th September 2019

It’s not that we’re zealots for Master John Douglas we’re just grateful. We all had problems. Bridget you can tell your story, I can tell my story. Not only did he heal me but he healed my two daughters out of my three daughters, he healed my mother, my father, my brother in law, my sister in law … that’s what we’re grateful for. And what happens is once people get healed they say “What can I give back?”

Now that I’m happy, heathy and terrific that’s what Linda and I do, we started these foundations. How can we promote this guy ’cause he won’t promote himself he’s the humblest guy I know, he doesn’t do anything like that, he just heals. Everywhere whether you’re in the airport with him or in an event, everybody around him he’s healing. But he’s such a normal person … what he gets off on is his mission to teach as many people as possible to do what he does. That’s his advanced courses that you’ve taken Bridget, I’ve taken, my wife has taken, two of my daughters have taken, very very powerful.

But more importantly, we love him but it’s not about John, he’d be the first to tell you it’s about your relationship with God.

Christopher Hartnett

It’s filled with lies.

Incidentally, the absurd image of MJD “healing everyone around him in airports” was clearly intended to mimic a habit of Jesus Christ: “the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.” (Luke 9:11)

Christopher Hartnett with Grace in Heavenly Mountain, Boone, North Carolina (2015)

But Christopher Hartnett goes much further in the 28th March 2020 teleseminar regarding his favorite daughter Grace. He specifically and proudly claims she can cure illnesses thanks to what MJD has taught her. He gives an example of a kidney problem he supposedly had. We’re expected to believe she resolved his chronic pain because she has learned MJD’s superpowers like other Elites:

28th March 2020 CMA teleseminar

I’ll never call myself a master healer because I’ve been in the grace and company of a master healer and I could never do what John does.

Yet my youngest daughter [Grace] came into my room last night and she realised I had a certain pain and she’s been taught by John and she’s very good at what she does and she relieved a kidney pain that many people on the phone know I’ve had on and off for many years. And she did that through the help and the grace of other healing facilitaors who are on the phone that have helped her at her young age to kill a virus and kill bacteria.

50,000 people John has healed in person. I’ve watched 25,000. 100,000s have been healed through our teleseminars over the last 12 years.

I asked John “Summarize for me what you do” and he thought about it. My daughter said “Dad you’re always saying you’re a businessman, what do you have to say in business?”

I do business and I only do things that work. The fact it does work I can’t emphatically scream any louder than I’m doing.

And John said “To sum up everything I do, I am a man that can kill a virus.”

This is 10 years ago. Now I know not only he can kill a virus but I’ve seen him teach other people that can kill a virus.

Christopher Hartnett

Notice the similarites to Jill’s experience of healing and referencing the community of other Elite “healing facilitaors”.

But the truth of course is neither MJD nor his Elites can kill viruses. I’m now informed some Elite graduates and CMA higher-ups actually acquired COVID-19 and were powerless to do anything except wait for their immune system to fight it. All of MJD’s tools were ineffective (no surprise there.) As I speculated, COVID-19 really has laid bare the false claims CMA were once so eager to advertise:

CMA Facebook 18th March 2020.

Now returning to Grace, I was unsure until this year if she really is a MJD true believer. The fact her father says she is an Elite and can kill viruses does not mean she would claim the same. Does she truly believe MJD and Elites like herself command healing and remote scanning powers? Does she believe in “karmic mitigation” to cure conditions caused by long-standing trauma? Possession of divine knowledge including “proof of God”? Angelic communication abilities? Just like McKayla and other higher-ups she doesn’t shout about it to the masses.

Here she posted CMA’s nightly Global Repair twitch stream without specifying what it is:

Grace Hartnett Instagram, January 2021.

I don’t know how or when Grace was introduced to MJD but it was no later than 2012. That’s 9+ years of involvement with him. What are the effects of long-term exposure to mind-numbing, deceptive, ingratiating, pretentious nonsense from a man enabled by someone she naturally looks up to, her own father?

Grace Hartnett pictured with Master John Douglas at Thanksgiving, 2015.

Within Grace’s The Enigma of a Dream there is something subtly confirming she does currently & publically endorse MJD.

However, if Grace wishes to clarify her father’s claims of her Elite powers are bogus, and why he would lie about her, I’ll be happy to receive such a statement from her and post it.

The Enigma of a Dream

The Enigma of a Dream (3:35) can be watched on Nowness and YouTube. Leave your own reviews in the comments on those sites or below, if you like.

I’ll start at the end, the reason for my interest. The closing shot:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0Z9dZ-AidE

Well well… who’s that mentioned at the end? None other than a certain “John Douglas”. Quite an eyebrow-raising moment for me. Below I’ll delve into the significance of the credit, give my interpretation of the film, and explore its connections to the teachings and tools of MJD.

The credit is a small but notable moment for plain “John Douglas”, here absent of his pretend ‘Master’ title, befitting his current reduced status by avoiding the now unfavored “Master John Douglas” name. I couldn’t let this somewhat obscure reference pass without putting attention on it.

It’s only in the closing credits the name crops up: an enigma indeed to the casual viewer. Unlike Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Carl Jung, he is neither quoted in the film or mentioned in the description:

Director Grace Hartnett invites you to peel back the layers of your mind and delve into your subconscious in a film that explores the mystery of dreaming. The Enigma of a Dream is a conceptual short film based on the journey of the mind slipping between states of awareness and tapping into the unknown depths of the human psyche.

The Enigma of a Dream is structured around lecture recordings from Indian spiritual guide Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung.

The decision to credit MJD so modestly is ironic because it was Grace’s father who gave him the title “Supreme Grand Master”. It would have raised too many questions among the film’s crew and viewers; one easy Google search later by a curious mind will see the troublesome world of CMA laid out. His name appearing only within the film itself means it won’t be discoverable in any searches.

Some of Grace’s friends are also Elite graduates and worked on the film. Did the non-CMA crew wonder about the innocuous-sounding namecheck or receive an explanation?

If MJD has actually renounced all his made-up titles he should do so publically to make it official. Not least for the benefit of the 1000s of his newsletter subscribers who must think he’s abandoned them (truly a blessing in disguise.) Though even “John Douglas” is an assumed name.

Inspired in faith and gratitude. Yes, Grace both believes in MJD and thanks him for what he’s imparted to her. But this man whom her dad says heals thousands “everywhere he goes” is not apparently worth shouting about. Her appearance in the Gratitude video was silent but now we know it was not out of place. She is a believer and follower of MJD and her work is influenced by him.

Of the film itself, I felt the execution didn’t match the concept. The concept being that dreams make us aware there is more to human existence than our conscious thinking brains constrained by the perceived world around us; dreams reveal the subconscious depths of our mind, and hence our soul. This allows us to access higher states of cosmic awareness and unite with the universe.

Grace writes “The dream state is used as a guide to illuminate the unknown and undiscovered aspects of our mind” but there’s little sign of it in The Enigma of a Dream. A disjointed series of soulless setpieces and fleeting glimpses of random imagery does not make a guide. The purpose apparently to present a subconscious dreamscape but who has dreams resembling this? These dreams seem more influenced by psychedelics. Such recreational drugs would be against CMA’s Elite course requirements so I must be mistaken.

Carl Jung viewed dreams as messages sent via symbols from the subconscious. He also believed people are on a transformational spiritual journey to fulfill their potential and become closer to the divine oneness; which MJD also preaches. A Maharishi quote of the same idea is heard in the film.

Maharishi said there were 7 levels of consciousness on the path of spiritual development from ‘waking’, ‘dreaming’ up to ‘unity’ and TM allows access to the higher levels. Continued meditation expands the waking mind to become more attuned to the state of ‘oneness’ – neither awake, asleep or dreaming. This brings understanding of one’s place in the universe and benefits the practitioner’s everyday life. Similiar to MJD saying his spiritual tools raise the level of your cosmic awareness to “just be” – a “non-reactive being that is literally walking at one with the vibration of creation around us.”

A famous reply of Jung when asked if he believes in God was “I know. I don’t need to believe. I know.” This is almost word for word what MJD claims about his Elites (remember Grace is one):

“Our group and my Elites have seen proof of God… it’s no longer a notion. They know.

MJD, 30th October 2020 teleseminar

In this way the film includes Jung as a forerunner of both Maharishi and MJD.

I’m not aware of MJD ever talking about dreams but he certainly has a lot to say about the subconscious and how it can be altered by his Subconscious Repair CD ($149.99) and hence improve your life:

MJD speaking about it:

30th October 2020 teleseminar

Subconscious Repair is the tool that will change your life. Whether you like it or not or believe it or not. Many many many people who are closed off to any spiritual truth … have had major major transformations by using the Subconscious Repair process.

The subconscious contains the belief systems that will elevate you and help you succeed, and the belief systems that will destroy you and make you fail.

The subconscious contains things you don’t even know about and they are affecting you moment to moment. And the Subconscious Repair CD is very very important.

MJD

This is unadulterated gunk. The CD is not “very very important” and won’t change your life. He implies listening to the CD will remove the ‘bad’ parts of your subconscious and hence your dreams will be purer and you’ll be generally closer to God. All complete fabrication to sell a $149.99 CD.

To be clear: Carl Jung was a noted 20th Century psychiatrist, whereas MJD is only a noted snakeoil salesman. MJD does not appear in the sidepanel of names Jung influenced. MJD doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page; one day he might but not for being a “world renowned theologian” I think.

Unfortunately, MJD’s followers are strung along by his promises to repair the subconscious:

I’ve accumulated 13 of the CD/MP3 processes since last summer and do about 2 ¼ hours in the morning and 2 ¼ hours in the afternoon. Can’t say that’s all that pleasant, mostly more like work, but feels “right” somehow.

What really started me on this was listening to a recorded excerpt of an event last summer. Went to bed soon after and had epic, Jungian type dream that said this was the turning point and start of new major phase of my life.

I have applied for the Elite training in August so we’ll see where that goes.

MJD devotee, 2020

Note this devotee even mentions he experienced a “Jungian type dream”, so we come full circle back to Grace’s 2021 film. Did this dream resemble The Engima of a Dream?

Maharishi is a difficult voice to listen to, necessitating subtitles. The narration got in the way of Alexis Georgopoulos AKA Arp’s ambient music, a suitably unearthly and spooky soundscape for sure. The editing was competent and matched the tempo of the narration. The photography was good but doesn’t have much to work with.

The Enigma of a Dream is too short to be enlightening; too vague to be insightful; and draws on too many unreliable sources to be convincing. Including more people and fewer inanimate objects would’ve made more sense.

It’s two thumbs down from me.

I would like to see Grace take up the documentary genre for her next project. A film about her father, MJD and the end days of CMA. I feel it would be a fascinating insight into the world of CMA and a compelling character study appealing to a wide audience.

I suggest the title Angels and Demons.

Master John Douglas: Of No Benefit Whatsoever

Despite MJD’s name hastily disappearing from new CMA output, he remains mentioned in several places on the masterangels.org website. At the same time sneaky edits have been made to remove his name in key places, trying to cover their backs from legal entanglements. These unannounced edits have caused fundamental contradictions in current CMA site content, notably the Elite Development pages, and the supposed “divine truth” and “knowledge” expressed prior.

I’ve already shown MJD’s removal from the ‘invitation’ page for his own Elite Development course. Another example occurs in the “Additional Terms” section of the course application form : it now also removes his name and deletes the part about paying $10,000+ for the 4-day course. The same $10,000 course that CMA Chairman and founder Christopher Hartnett can’t comprehend why people are concerned about the cost.

The 2020 form for Elite application is on Internet Archive

How unprofessional of MJD the “consummate Master Healer” (CMA’s words) to no longer “remotely and silenty check in with participants”! Of course the truth is he never did because he can’t. And because the Master Angels do not exist, no-one will be “preparing” or “checking in” with participants at all.

However, the outrageous “Disclaimer and Personal Information” section of the same Elite application form does retain MJD’s name:

There are so many eyebrow-raising clauses I don’t know where to begin. It lies about every claim CMA and MJD have ever made about MJD’s abilities and his powers to heal. How could anyone read this disclaimer and still want to attend the course or have anything to do with them?

Who will be interested in attending the 2021 Elite Development courses except the most hardcore of MJD devotees – loyalists heavily invested for years and unable to entertain an iota of uncertainty about the truth of his invented doctrines, false superpowers and his identity. The kind of people who could read my entire blog and think “this changes nothing for me.”

CMA Facebook 18 March 2020

Anyone who thinks MJD and his associates “have not represented themselves in any way as possessing any medical expertise or medical training” and “no representations … have been made to me by Master Spiritual Teacher John Douglas or his associates as to the benefits … of attending any knowledge course, training, workshop seminar and the like” must have been born yesterday. My blog and the Internet are full of evidence to the contrary.

How does the disclaimer make sense legally or ethically when it says “Master Teacher John Douglas and his associates … have not prescribed, diagnosed, treated or recommended any particular treatment or medication or substance for me” but the very same application form asks “Please list any supplements you take recommended by John Douglas” :

Another baffling part of the Elite application disclaimer is “I attend such events of my own free will with no expectation of any health, spiritual or other personal benefits whatsoever.” If a person can say they have no expectation of benefits whatsoever, why are they applying for the course? Why would they pay $10,000+ to attend? Why would the course exist? How does it make sense with the long list of benefits listed on the Elite Invitation page, and indeed on the very same application form it says “Much of this application process is for your benefit …”?

Benefits of the Elite Development course as advertised

Note especially “the healings and transformations will be done”.

MJD personally championing the benefits of Elite training:

“Access to a secret society of secret knowledge”, CMA newsletter August 2020

And who can forget MJD’s insane “proof of God” claim:

30 October 2020 teleseminar

Our group and my elites have seen proof of God and have seen the reality of God and have seen the evidence of God and have seen the scientific proof of God. It’s no longer a notion. They know.

Master John Douglas

Another clip from same 30 October 2020 teleseminar of MJD advancing the benefits, knowledge and capabilities of CMA’s courses and learned abilities:

We have the gift in nature to kill infections. We have the gift in nature to find the infections, to discern them, to see them. And our Elite initiates also have a level of this blessing to look after their own selves and their own families.

I’ll just give you an example. Maybe you realised this in the last few weeks, but in the United States and eventually it came over Australia there was an airborne infection that created a (cough) instant reaction of neck and shoulder pain. And many people were using Silent Faith Remotes and a lot of the Elites were working with this and people I know and people I was in contact with were suffering this, all of a sudden you just pick up this airborne pathogen and it just creates this sharp and stiff pain in the shoulders and neck and this is what happens. A virus literally comes in and lives and attacks your spinal cord and the peripheral nerves around the spinal branches … and it creates stiffness and pain and it was very acute, quick, as soon as you got it you knew it. So it was in the air and it was coming into people and it was something nobody would know about.

When you kill the virus the pain disappeared. And this is the sort of thing we deal with. This is the sort of truth we reveal to you.

Master John Douglas

Airborne infection that created a instant reaction of neck and shoulder pain“? What on Earth is he talking about? At first I thought he meant Coronavirus but appears he’s got something else in mind. He says Elites can heal it, whatever it is, explicitly detailing an expected benefit to attendees of Elite Development teaching. And just like his claims to kill Coronavirus it’s again nonsense from his mouth.

What legitimate course has every student declare they expect nothing from it? If you were interviewed for placement at a college and a student admissions officer asked “What do you expect to get out of your time at our institution?” and you replied “no benefits whatsoever”, do you think that would help or hinder your application? What if the interviewer said to you “You have to declare you expect no benefits from our course”? But CMA are saying if even a hint of a potential benefit enters your mind, you must reject it and sign the form.

And here is Hartnett promoting the “benefits” of the Elite course:

28 March 2020 teleseminar

Many of us on the phone, probably over 450 people on the phone, have taken John’s advanced Elite Development course. What those people have learned through John’s grace and the Masters’ grace, we’ve learned to actually isolate some of those particular viruses, some of those particular ailments. Whether it’s Parkinson’s, in some cases cancer. And what we do once we isolate that through a certain procedure that’s taught through the Elite Development course we then ask the Master Angels for their help. It’s kind of like we call in the airforce and they specifically target those specific problems.

Does it work? It works.

Hartnett

All of this completely contradicts the Elite application disclaimer “I also fully acknowledge that no representations, promises or warranties, express or implied, have been made to me by Master Spiritual Teacher John Douglas or his associates as to the benefits or results that I may gain or experience as a result of attending any knowledge course, training, workshop seminar and the like.”

Impossible, unconscionable, misrepresentative.

The only personal benefit is to MJD’s bank account.

Some CMA members enthusiastic about their expectations for 2020’s Elite courses:

CMA Facebook, 3 August 2020

I trust they all first read the Elite disclaimer before applying and eliminated their expectations of any benefits whatsoever of attending, and communicated this necessity to new CMA recruits.

Another restrictive new addition on the Elite application form is the requirement for “Sponsors”:

The Elite level of the supposed “faith-based community Church open to all seekers of truth” is now like a private members’ club. A club whose Grand Poobah Supreme Grand Master John Douglas says is a “secret society of secret knowledge” while simultaneously having you sign a disclaimer which contradicts every reason you joined? CMA want to protect themselves from wavering casuals and infiltrators.

Would you be a member of a club that would have Hartnett and MJD as members?
