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?

Watch Christopher Hartnett introduce Master John Douglas

Videos of CMA chairman, founder and chief MJD promotor Christopher Hartnett are hard to find, as with MJD.

There are currently no videos of either men on CMA’s YouTube channel but in 2019 some seminar videos were posted only to be deleted a few months later for some reason. CMA like deleting things especially recently. Searching wider gives impression there are no videos of them anywhere.

I posted a video clip of MJD here but recently realized I don’t have a Hartnett video up. Today I’m changing that. If you have any more, send me details.

Enjoy (if that’s the right word) this short compilation of Hartnett introducing MJD at previous seminars in an undetermined location, circa 2018/2019. No doubt Hartnett had been speaking at great length each time, as heard in the teleseminars. This video was to promote the upcoming “Golden Rays of Bliss” tour. All the edits are CMA’s.

Hartnett: My greatest honor, my greatest time and I’m sure everybody’s gonna love it, Master John Douglas.

MJD: Ah thank you Chris.

[Audience applause]

Hartnett: Feel the bliss, be the bliss, experience the bliss. And John, on my knees, thank you for all you do.

MJD (?) : Here we go!

Note the glimpses of blue or yellow lanyards of Elite Development graduates worn by some attendees, as also seen in e.g. this photo:

Comments expressing bombastic excitement and praise typical of CMA higher-ups were left:

Look out for another MJD video I’ll be posting soon.


Like Mother, Like Daughter

I’ve previously revealed McKayla Maroney‘s deep involvement with the Church of Master Angels and her idolizing of Master John Douglas. In the last few years McKayla has transitioned from ex-Elite gymnast to a graduate of CMA’s Elite Development course learning “proof of God” and the ability to “remote scan matter and energies”.

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.

Erin and McKayla Maroney, @McKaylaMaroneyOfficial Facebook (2014)

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:

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

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.

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

Erin says:

“The very first night after seeing John I slept through the night for the first time in ten years.”

Later in same video at 1:46 mark she says:

“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.”

Fragments of McKayla’s CMA life.

Gratitude Video

The second video is simply titled “Gratitude Video” posted 24 October 2019. Unknown location, possibly CMA’s “chapel” on Heavenly Mountain.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4DvtwcPubk

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4DvtwcPubk

“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:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4DvtwcPubk

“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.

Other Planets

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”:

Hartnett, CMA conference call 2019

“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.
