“Now my concern is not whether or not I can help liberate my readers from cults, but whether I will kill them with laughter…” Pierre S. Freeman
Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum Offers New Twist to Exit Counseling
Pierre S. Freeman, the noted occult whistleblower and author of two books exposing the controversial teachings of AMORC, The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked, now happily explores a new tool in the arsenal of defense against cult brainwashing- laughter, the deployment of which abounds in his new short work of fiction, “Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum,” Part 1 “Mayhem on the Astral Highway.”
Pierre S. Freeman who, since his exit from a religious cult, has spent years of effort writing books and blogging about the dangers of Mind Control but now has suddenly taken a surprising U-turn in his approach. His new book, “Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum,” Part 1 “Mayhem on the Astral Highway,” will help interested readers to take a walk on the light side when exploring the deadly Mind Control of religious cults.
“Somewhere in the past,” says Freeman. “I had heard about Norman Cousin, the famous editor of the Saturday Review and the author of quite a few books, some of which were based on his discovery of laughter as a way of ameliorating the severe pain he was experiencing due to some kind of arthritis. Indeed, he said laughter had a powerful curative effect on his condition.”
The case of author/journalist, Norman Cousins, who healed himself by watching Marx Brothers’ films, is widely known. So are his excited statements when he made “the joyous discovery that ten minutes of genuine belly laughter had an anesthetic effect and would give me at least two hours of pain-free sleep.”
“When I reflected on this,” Freeman says thoughtfully, “I had to ask myself- could laughter affect one’s mental conditioning when belonging to a cult? Would it dare someone to take a quick look at the absurdity of many of the practices and claims they were experiencing in a religious cult? So I have created a way to test my new theory by providing members of all kinds of cults- or their families- or friends or people actually contemplating one of them- with a humorous look at religious cults. In fact, I even prescribe my book for people who are just interested in taking a different look at cult behavior- apart from the endless TV programs on Jim Jones or Charles Manson, Or- to be brutally honest, to anyone who wants a good laugh.”
In a second open letter to AMORC’S imperial leader, author Pierre S. Freeman writes, “Christian Bernard, I am willing to delay the publication of my next book for five years- the one scheduled for release in 2015, an even more devastating critique than those in The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked- if you do one simple thing…”
Freeman Offers Suspending Next Book for Five Years in Exchange for Distribution Deal
As one of the most vociferous critics of AMORC (Ancient Mystical Order Of Rosæ Crucis), an international self-proclaimed occult organization, Pierre S. Freeman, was recently startled when he learned of recent signs that some high officials, perhaps Christian Bernard, the Imperator himself, have had a few feathers ruffled by Freeman’s account of 26 years in the Order and the dark secrets he found about the Order’s methodology of conditioning their members to believe in the cosmic standing of their order and its virtual monopoly on the great truths of the Universe.
As the author of two books exposing the controversial teachings of AMORC, The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked, Freeman is now announcing that he has sent a second open letter to the Imperator, dramatically offering to suspend publication of his next full length expose for a period of five years in exchange for a specific distribution agreement regarding his two latest books.
Pierre S. Freeman, author of The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked, has recently been besieged by current and prospective members of AMORC (Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis), an international self-proclaimed occult organization, reacting in various ways to his two books exposing the mind control practices of the religious cult. One posting in a forum, written by an anxious foot soldier coming to the aid of the current leader of the Rosicrucian order, Christian Bernard, appeared to address my reminder that the title of their leader is Imperator, which is Latin for Emperor.
The concerned member said, I have no choice but to give a reply to those that are trying to downplay the spiritual position of our Venerated Imperator Christian Bernard. We, the members of AMORC, are not stupid. We know that ‘Imperator’ is (the) Latin word for ‘Emperor.’ We are proud to defend our Imperator and we are not ashamed of being considered the ‘Subject of the Imperator.’ After all, it is a privilege to serve and defend our Imperator-present and past. ‘
In addition to comments like this- emails, blogs and in forums by members, there have been also some recent signs that some high officials, perhaps Christian Bernard, the Imperator himself, have had a few feathers ruffled by Freeman’s account of 26 years in the Order and the dark secrets he found about the Order’s methodology of conditioning their members to believe in the cosmic standing of their order and its virtual monopoly on the great truths of the Universe. These secrets turned out to be a very powerful but subtle form of mind control.
“Of course,” Freeman, author of The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked, says, “I am pleased by finally realizing my message is getting out. And I do get the impression that certain members of the hierarchy would like me to close shop. But as everyone who knows me and the high value I attribute to my mission- that is not going to happen. Still, I am flattered by their desire to silence me, as it has made me aware of the potential impact my books might be having.”
Freeman, who, besides his books, had written an Open Letter to Christian Barnard, had, for a while, been slightly peeved that his first letter had not been answered.
“But then I realized,” Freeman said, “Christian didn’t answer the letter because he was feeling the thrust of my efforts, just as now he probably would like to make my books disappear but his Rosicrucian magic is just not powerful enough. Still, I guess I am somewhat flattered by his efforts, but still, believe or not, I have begun to feel a twinge of compassion for his predicament, so I decided to write him a second letter, where I repeated the unanswered questions posed in my first letter. I know, by now, he is probably agonizing over the immanent release of my third book. So in my new letter, I also offer him a solution to the ensuing problems he will encounter when that book is released, as it is an even more powerful expose of the machinations of his order.
“In this letter, I said- ‘Christian Bernard, I am willing to delay the publication of my next book for five years- the one scheduled for release in 2015, an even more devastating critique than those in The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked- if you do one simple thing… Procure a bulk quantity of both books at a special wholesale price that I provide and distribute them to each and every member of AMORC right now and to every new member, also known as the subject of the Imperator, within 30 days of their enrolling as a member in your Exalted Empire.’”
Sighing deeply, Pierre continued, “I wanted him to realize the almost total futility of my offer as to actually affecting his current membership. I pointed out- ‘As so many of your members seem to despise my books already, you really shouldn’t have any problem letting the rest of your members have a go at them. Like your other foot soldiers, the majority of members will probably hate my books, too. Maybe they will write me a whole bunch of nasty letters, further facilitating my decline from my humble throne as the most successful and comprehensive whistleblower in your kingdom to date, a poor, simple-minded Haitian who just couldn’t keep his mouth closed.”
Author Asks Christian Bernard to Explain Troubling Rosicrucian Practices
Troubled by his 24-year ordeal with the Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis (AMORC), author Pierre S. Freeman has posted an Open Letter to Christian Bernard, leader of the century-old Rosicrucian fraternal organization. It asks fundamental questions about the reality, soundness and legality of AMORC’S claims and activities.
Many of the readers of my blog and my books, The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked are very surprised to realize how closely the so-called spiritual techniques of AMORC seem to resemble those used by Mind Control practitioners. They, like me, not only have wondered why these methods do not seem to work for members but also why they have perpetuated in the first place? So if Bernard wants to send out weekly lessons to his members telling them how to heal people without any kind of medical or health credentials; how to use a crystal ball, how to take over political leader’s consciousness to manipulate the actions for the sake of for world peace- I would like to know, first of all, why these things don’t work? Second of all, even if these practices did work, how they conform to anything like legitimate moral behavior respecting other people’s privacy or human rights? My third question is — why is Bernard sending out lessons like these in the first place — ones that put the acquisition of occult powers over the fundamental path taken by the true mystic in all religious and spiritual traditions- surrender to the will of God? My letters asks him to defend his actions.
Pierre S. Freeman claims to be a firm believer in the alleged principles of the Order, meaning the principles of self-discipline and moral conduct leading to the possibility of profound mystical experience and the resulting good flowing from that experience. He claims to object, however, to specific practices inherent in the teaching, which he believes are psychologically destructive, questioning their reality in the first place. “In An Open Letter to Christian Bernard,” says Freeman, “I ask if the telepathy (reading people’s minds, telekinesis (moving objects at will), reading the vibrations of objects at distance (radiaesthesia), even the ability to create actual physical objects through the power of visualization- are real or the product of hypnotically-induced Mind Control?” Can, members actually become invisible at will or really learn to manipulate other people’s consciousness- or are they being trained to fantasize and hallucinate?
Pierre S. Freeman Adds Book AMORC Unmasked! To his Arsenal of Whistleblower Weapons Aimed at Rosicrucian Order
Summary: Freeman Confronts Critics with Incredulous Claims and Practices of Mind Control Cult
Inspired by numerous responses to his first book, The Prisoner of San Jose, Pierre S. Freeman releases second book, AMORC Unmasked! This book goes into greater depth, exposing the hidden mind control practices of the Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis, commonly called AMORC, but also defending the possibility for a true spiritual path based on genuine mystical principles. He shows the risks that serious, active members take in joining this organization and participating in the weekly reading and exercises – a danger threatening their very psychological health and survival. The book probes the claim that AMORC can guide its members towards the power to become invisible at will, the power to create prosperity through visualization and the power to manipulate others through a type of sanitized, psychic manipulation.
When Pierre S. Freeman released his first book, The Prisoner of San Jose, chronicling his 24 years as a victim of mind control in the Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis, commonly called AMORC, the book was assailed by various critics. To an extent, the second book, AMORC Unmasked was developed to address issues presented by defenders of the Order, some former and some current members.
Leaning back in a worn leather chair by his desk cluttered with Rosicrucian paraphernalia, books and manuscripts, Freeman spoke crisply with a strong, French accent, “I think that many of my critics were bewildered that their ‘innocent’ organization could even remotely be accused of mind control. The problem is that, although mind control techniques are contained in their weekly lessons, one has to be a serious believer and practitioner to fully receive their effect.”
According to Freeman, there are different levels of involvement in every religious or fraternal organization. “For instance, in certain Christian charismatic circles, which accept speaking in tongues as a doctrine and acceptable practice, how many congregants actually speak with tongues regularly? How many Masons actually progress to the highest order? In most cases, there are a relatively small number of intensely interested and dedicated members. In terms of AMORC, I was one of them.”
Whereas if these critics have read The Prisoner of San Jose, have they really studied the monographs and other materials of AMORC they profess to believe in? “I bet that most of my critics, if they were aware of it, would object to AMORC’s explicit program for taking over — by the occult operation of “Assumption” — other people’s minds, hearts and bodies, even government leaders — for the sake of manipulating their actions for the member’s selfish needs and/or his perceived idea of the common good. The truth is that I doubt that many members have really fully absorbed the monographs and the content containing experiments on becoming invisible, manifestation desires, or non-verifiable healing protocol. Oh, they meet other members in convocations — and they skim through the lessons — but few really grasp what AMORC is about. In fact, cults often have a large percentage of members that do not really know their organization very well, their literature or the history of their founders.”
“If you buy into an organization without truly knowing it, you are a kind of slave. And that is true — even if you are a third generation member — as some of my critics claim to be. But mind control content only will affect its most diligent and persistent members, the ones who believe in the Cosmic Masters, in the Secret History of the Order.”
Author Pierre S. Freeman Reveals Secrets of Rosicrucian Mind Control Program
Having recently released his first book, The Prisoner of San Jose, which described his agonizing Mind Control journey through the labyrinth of so-called the Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis (AMORC), Pierre S. Freeman now presents a comprehensive expose of AMORC’s dangerous brainwashing protocol in AMORC Unmasked, published by the Arizona-based publishing company, Wheatmark, Inc.
“It is hard for people to understand the depths of my anger,” says author, Pierre S. Freeman, “I literally lost my soul for over twenty years. Although my last book talked a great deal about the effect of Mind Control on me personally, in AMORC Unmasked, I wanted to explain more how these subtle hypnotic methods can transform a person from a free-spirited and independent individual to a slave of a Mind Control’s organization flawed agenda for controlling and using their members.”
In AMORC Unmasked, Freeman unfolds the incredible details and methodology of the step-by-step hypnotic program of the secret order known for its flamboyant mystical recruiting style and its colorful, Egyptian-styled headquarters in San Jose, California. In the book, Freeman reveals more intimate details of AMORC’s Mind Control methodology and how its hidden agenda advances from mild hypnotic induction to more serious forms of post-hypnotic suggestion and hallucination.
According to Pierre S. Freeman, AMORC’s weekly monographs, practiced by all participating members, include lessons in telepathy, telekinesis, even the ability to create actual physical objects through the power of visualization. Further, members are taught how to become invisible at will, and trained in the Art of Assumption which is a method for taking over other people’s consciousness without their knowledge or consent in a way that serves their personal interest. Ultimately, members are taught to use the Art of Assumption to remotely manipulate the consciousness of world leaders and influence sensitive political events. They are even instructed in the use of a crystal ball. According to Freeman, AMORC ultimately promises a virtual Aladdin’s lamp for manifesting their most treasured desires to active, serious members.
Bill Krohn, a film critic for the Cahiers du cinema), and historian of film who wrote Hitchcock at Work) and a documentary filmmaker, who produced It’s All True: Based on an Unfinished Film by Orson Welles, has long been interested in the line that differentiates a true spiritual organization from one that has socially negative intent. He has this to say about AMORC Unmasked, “The Devil, we’re told, can quote scripture, and in a world filled with false religions that imprison followers’ minds and souls, there isn’t one that doesn’t contain a grain of truth and true spiritual seeking. That is how mind-control groups that call themselves religions attract members and enslave them, through the use of techniques that work because they contain distorted traces of real knowledge, but pervert them for the sake of profit and power.”
Having said this, Krohn comments on this important facet of Freeman’s subtle expose, “AMORC Unmasked achieves the near-impossible. By describing and analyzing the inner rituals and secrets of the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross, whose prestigious history may well be rooted in mysteries long lost and forgotten, Pierre Freeman sifts out the grains of truth while exposing the falsity of what are essentially techniques of self-hypnosis, and the culture of unfreedom that they make possible: something he understands well because he was its prisoner for almost a quarter of a century.” Upon reading this book, many readers will discover that AMORC Unmasked is more than just an expose. As Bill Krohn concludes, “For seekers and prisoners alike — and aren’t we all a little of both? This beautifully written, eminently practical and unflinchingly honest book belongs on the short shelf of wisdom literature where true freedom through loving union with God may still be found.”
AMORC Unmasked will display to readers how a religious cult deploys advanced hypnotic and mind control techniques to not only retain its membership, but to also enslave them. When AMORC’s mask is ripped off, the reader will see the cynical, jeering skeletal smile hidden behind the veil of secrecy and the promise of Cosmic Consciousness. Still, even with this said, behind these shadows lies a brighter hope hinted at and also exposed in Freeman’s new book, which will be officially released in November.
People who have lived outside of a mind control environment and don’t understand the dynamics of indoctrination, will find many of the claims of simply incredulous. In AMORC UNMASKED, Freeman carefully documents how the first Rosicrucian exercises in cultivating the perception of the aura and testing one’s intuition when a stranger calls on the phone will lead to fantastic journeys backwards in time to unravel the mysteries of creation and the unfoldment of ancient civilizations. And, no, it doesn’t stop there. In the latter degrees, members learn to assume a cloak of invisibility, when needed, and empowering one to assume the thoughts and consciousness of prospective employers, business associates and even world leaders to help the planet – as well as oneself – along the path to peace, and prosperity.Having written the ground-breaking book, The Prisoner of San Jose, which graphically described his twenty-four years of enslavement by the Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis or AMORC, Pierre S. Freeman now focuses in on the mechanics of the mind control process. In AMORC UNMASKED he reveals, for the first time, intimate details about the cult’s theology, protocol and techniques for occult advancement.
But AMORC UNMASKED doesn’t take a purely negative path. Based on his research and own spiritual growth following his exit from the Rosicrucian system, Freeman believes that the AMORC’s ideas may be derived, although in a materialistic and self-serving way, from ancient mystical systems which may, indeed, have grounding in a higher reality. In addressing various sections of the vast Rosicrucian system, Freeman believes he has found the lineaments of important truths embedded in the divine matrix itself. In summary, Freeman believes that Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis is a fraternal society clothing itself in the Paradigm of the Spiritual Seeker but in the end is, in truth, more accurately garbed in the Paradigm of the Magician, an organization essentially catering to the deviant lust of men for power of the universe and each other.
… From- CHAPTER II
THE GOLDEN KEY
… Passages in which Pierre S. Freeman, explains his goals in exposing the intimate secrets of AMORC’s Mind Control Platform, which are developed in the lessons called monographs, which are sent out each week to their members..
But after considerable time delving into the literature, I began to realize that AMORC worked similarly to other Mind Control cults- with one single exception. Members were generally recruited through advertisements, not people. And they were indoctrinated principally through the monographs utilizing a combination of highly authoritarian doctrines coupled with a progressive program of hypnotic indoctrination and mind control.
And the very core of their program was based on the exercises in the monographs.
-THE KEY WAS THE MONOGRAPHS-
THE KEY TO ENSLAVEMENT OR THE KEY TO ESCAPE!!
By examining these monographs, in conjunction with looking at Mind Control literature, but also other types of spiritual literature, I came to the conclusion that I could deprogram myself, to a large extent, but also that the monographs offered a distorted view of the world, but perhaps one that had a grain of spiritual truth.
I sought to deprogram myself but I also sought to look for answers.
I now would like to share with you my insights by directly commenting on the exercises in the Rosicrucian monographs, as well as going over some of their claims about history; the Spiritual path; sound, color, biological and occult correspondences, etc. In commenting on these exercises, I wish to accomplish several goals.
The first goal is to show exactly why these exercises, in context, are part of a Mind Control system- and do not truly empower a Rosicrucian member. …
How do we define a Mind Control cult? I like Michael Langdon’s definition, as it embodies a great many core characteristics of a cult. It is a good general definition.
A cult is a group or movement that, to a significant degree, (a) exhibits great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea, or thing, (b) uses a thought-reform program to persuade, control, and socialize members (i.e., to integrate them into the group’s unique pattern of relationships, beliefs, values, and practices), (c) systematically induces states of psychological dependency, (d) exploits members to advance the leaderships goals, (e) causes psychological harm to members, their families, and the community.1
My second goal is to call into question the practicality and even reality of these exercises by showing:
- Their validity cannot be verified by the member.
- Their historical usage by the Rosicrucians over millennia cannot be proven.
- Exercises like them can be easily found in different traditions, suggesting something different than their purported historical origin.
- The correspondences between colors, sounds, psychic centers, nerve ganglion, endocrine glands is not necessarily true nor consistent with other traditions.
In a quasi-religious cult like AMORC, it is necessary to look carefully at the effect of their use of techniques based on the theory they propound about the human spirit and how these exercises dovetail with their social methodology to isolate them from the everyday world and its ways of looking at things. As Lalich and Tobias point out*:
Cults may use the following methods to advance their thought-reform programs:
- Induced dissociation and other altered states (speaking in tongues, chanting, trance induction via repeated affirmations, extended periods of meditation, lengthy denunciation sessions, public trials, “hot seat” criticisms focusing on one individual, sexual abuse, torture, etc.)
- Control of information going in and out of the group environment
- Isolation from family and friends
- Control of member’s financial resources
- Sleep and food deprivation
- Peer and leadership pressure
- Extensive indoctrination sessions (through Bible lessons, political training, sales training, or self-awareness lessons)
- Rigid security regulations and daily rules
My third goal is to indicate, again, that much of this material, particularly the elements related to the Cosmic Masters and the claims about that traditions are taken from readily accessible sources, particularly theosophy.
My fourth goal, the most challenging, is to show how some of these exercises and their direction may be related to a true spiritual path- and what a true spiritual path might consist of.
In respect of the fourth goal, I am not pushing any particular teaching or system. Nor do I consider myself far along any spiritual path that would render me as a teacher of mysticism or some kind of Cosmic Master.
Rather, I look at myself as a victim, for whatever reasons, of a really subtle type of mind control, whose participation in AMORC has never really distinguished my belief and focus for the Mystical Path. So, despite my limitations, I would like to provide the Seeker with an idea of what I believe a true spiritual path might be like and how, in many senses, its goals, methodology and general intention is quite opposite the spiritual direction of AMORC.
*Lalich, Janja and Tobias, Madeleine, Take Back Your Life: Recovering from Cults and Abusive Relationhship. Berkeley: Bay Tree Publishing, 2006, p.41.
The author explains how he escaped from AMORC by studying exit psychology and then wrote about his experience in The Prisoner of San Jose. He then realized that, to complete the picture, he needs to unveil more of the doctrines and actual training protocols of the organization.
CHAPTER I THE RABBIT HOLE
The author reviews his journey from a small child in Haiti to becoming a victim of Mind Control through the Rosicrucian Order. He begins to become aware of his self-division, although his cult personality is the driving force in his life.
CHAPTER II THE GOLDEN KEY
The author discovers Mind Control literature, begins a path towards liberation from AMORC. After finishing his first book, he decides to continue forward with his story in a second book. In this book, he will show: 1) How the exercises are part of a mind control system. 2) How they actually work for certain non-spiritual workers and how they cannot be judged on their professed intention 3) Where some of these teachings come from and their possible derivation 4) How a true spiritual path would depart from the direction of the Rosicrucian Order.
Section 1 to Section 32 covers experiments of the Neophyte Section (AMORC very beginning studies) to the end of Neophyte Section.
This is an introduction to the Rosicrucian teachings. It begins with very light occult exercises in trying to experience people’s vibrations in a crowd, telepathically contacting a person by visualizing them, picking up vibrations from a book or magazine, learning the rudiments of a self-healing exercise. It then introduces Rosicrucian chanting, beginning with the sacred sound, “OM,” has the member distinguish between the subconscious and objective consciousness, begin gazing at candles as a concentration exercise, eventually trying to change the color of the candle’s aura. All of this, as the author shows, are really exercises in self-hypnosis: trance induction, acceptance of covert post-hypnotic suggestion and the beginnings of creating a framework for the self-induction positive and negative hallucination. The stages of hypnotic depth suggested by the Rosicrucian are compared to Aron’s Scale, a way of measuring this depth. As the exercises progress, visualization ability is developed that will be functioning later in very specific healing, out-of-body and extrasensory exercises. These exercises also include the manifestation exercises that created great confusion and despair in the mind and heart of the author as his indoctrination continued throughout these sections.
Section 33 to Section 50 starts at Temple Degree 1 and end at the end of Temple Degree 6
This next set of exercises is much more powerful and begins to co-opt every waking and sleeping moment of the members’ life. The very first exercise is one of reviewing the day’s experience in depth before going to sleep. The member learns that the very core of one’s desires and wishes are to be handled with a certain manifestation protocol. The member learns how to submit requests for short term and far memory, including reincarnation, to the subconscious mind. In focusing on reincarnation, AMORC repeats his credo of open-mindedness, saying that members can believe whatever they want, but also saying that, for centuries, AMORC always taught this doctrine. Later on, they are also “open-minded” about letting members believe what they want about the beginning of life, but also say that, for centuries, Rosicrucians have known that life begins with the first breath of the soul, the point in which the soul enters the body- paving the way for members taking a pro-choice position based on AMORC’s scenario for defining when life begins in the human experience. It then begins to discuss in depth its nerve stimulation exercises, designed to ameliorate a great many medical conditions. It reveals its unusual form of medical diagnosis and goes into great deal of detail about combining various kinds of breathing with having members lay hands upon subjects for the purpose of specific types of energy transmission based on their theory of creating a balance in the autonomic nervous system as a core aspect of healing.
Section 51 to Section 80 includes Temple Degrees 7, 8 and 9.
In these exercises, AMORC goes into considerable depth about how to heal specific ailments, the relationship between the psychic centers and the key glands of the human body. The author brings up the difficulty of confirming anything about this healing protocol and questions the practice of AMORC encouraging its use on friends and family of members. Out-of-Body projection is now explored in great detail- projecting to a place or person. AMORC continues to assure its members that such powers cannot be used in the wrong way and that the universe only supports the positive use of these powers. It now goes further into the techniques of medical diagnosis, including techniques that utilize the aura. It then goes into the Lost Word, MATHREM- and shows how its chanting protocols and their secret meanings are derived from this ancient word, with its Atlantean roots. It shows how each individual sound can be used to drive specific psychic centers, useful in healing specific ailments. It discusses reincarnation in even more detail and shows how the member can be useful in assisting others to pass through death into the spiritual planes. Again, it displays “openness” towards the victims of suicide, chastising other religions for being so hard on persons whose lives have been filled with physical or emotional pain. It counsels the member on prayer and tells specifically how to pray, the more flexible Rosicrucian way.
Section 81 to Section 123 includes Temple Degrees 10, 11, 12 and beyond the Illuminati Section.
In this section, the member starts to move out of the ordinary experience of life and into a kind of twilight zone of the hyperphenomenal. It begins with exercises in chanting, breathing and invocation for the purposes of creating a protective shield around the member- against assaults against his safety and comfort. It proceeds to the member learning how to “pick up” vibrations from historical sites, moving objects by will, using radiesthesia for locating objects and for divinatory purposes revolving around the use of a pendulum. It refines and develops the members’ telepathic skills and then begins to plunge into arcane areas like invisibility, where the member learns how to vanish in times of emergency or great need. He also learns how to create objects with his mind, take over other people’s consciousness for the sake of personal advantage or world peace, both of which are depicted as being under the umbrella of Cosmic good. Various of these exercises utilize the member’s creation of an ‘alchemical cloud’ for mental creation, invisibility and the assumption of other people’s thoughts, feelings and physical actions. If a member makes it to this level of experience, it is the author’s opinion that he has reached the very greatest depth of hypnotic induction.
HOW TO ESCAPE MIND CONTROL PRISON
The author unveils his own plan on how to escape a Mind Control organization. It involves the stealth and determination to leave the Order and the wisdom to not let personal anger and recrimination cripple you emotionally. Pierre S. Freeman, by example, has show how this can happen and why it is truly possible for the reader, if he is truly trapped in a Mind Control organization.
“The Devil, we’re told, can quote scripture, and in a world filled with false religions that imprison followers’ minds and souls, there isn’t one that doesn’t contain a grain of truth and true spiritual seeking. That is how mind-control groups that call themselves religions attract members and enslave them: through the use of techniques that work because they contain distorted traces of real knowledge, but pervert them for the sake of profit and power.
AMORC Unmasked achieves the near impossible. By describing and analyzing the inner rituals and secrets of the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross, whose prestigious history may well be rooted in mysteries long lost and forgotten, Pierre Freeman sifts out the grains of truth while exposing the falsity of what are essentially techniques of self-hypnosis, and the culture of unfreedom that they make possible: something he understands well because he was its prisoner for almost a quarter of a century.
For seekers and prisoners alike (and aren’t we all a little of both?), this beautifully written, eminently practical, and unflinchingly honest book belongs on the short shelf of wisdom literature where true freedom through loving union with God may still be found.”
— Bill Krohn/critic (Cahiers du Cinéma), historian (Hitchcock at Work), and documentary filmmaker (It’s All True)
“The Prisoner of San Jose” Unveils Clever use of Hypnotic Induction in Daily Practices
Have you ever wondered how cult organizations like those of the Branch Davidians or Manson gained control over their members? What techniques could so quickly capture the hearts and souls of ordinary people, converting them into zombie-like followers of some strange belief system? According to Pierre S. Freeman FRC , L:.L:.L:., author of “The Prisoner of San Jose,” these cults use the same mind control techniques that destroyed his life for twenty-four years.
“If I hadn’t almost accidentally discovered information about mind control techniques, I would still be in AMORC today,” Freeman contends. The acronym, A.M.O.R.C. stands for the Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis, an organization founded by H. Spencer Lewis in the beginning of the last century that claims roots in ancient Egypt. AMORC claims to be run by an invisible hierarchy whose teachings of Cosmic attunement give its members enviable control over their material and spiritual affairs.
“When you receive their weekly lessons, called monographs, you become enthralled with the possibilities. After a short period of time practicing their techniques of visualization and mind control, you come to believe that you have finally discovered what makes the world tick. The problem is that you really have no evidence of that reality, just the continual restatement of that claim. What has happened is that your personality has been altered by subtle but carefully orchestrated techniques of hypnosis.”
Freeman describes how by creating a home sanctum, something like a tiny temple in your home, using candles and incense while visualizing certain symbols and making certain symbolic gestures, you quickly become hypnotized, a state which enhances your suggestibility and hence the believability of the Rosicrucian claims. The monographs, those weekly lessons, are read religiously in this artificial atmosphere, heightening their effect and altering your personality to be like those compliant souls who have been subjected to the ritual hypnosis of so many cult groups.
“I experienced a kind of hell on earth for twenty-four years. Once you’re in a cult, it is very difficult to get out. You are sabotaged by your own personality,” says Freeman. “I wrote this book to help others prevent this from happening and to help others trapped in mind control cults to realize that it is possible to be free.”
Pierre S. Freeman’s new book, “The Prisoner of San Jose,” exposes the invasive psychological methods of a secretive Rosicrucian cult based in Canada but with its American headquarters in San Jose, California. Not only does this book expose the shadowy world of the Rosicrucian order- with its secret vows, invisible Masters and omnipotent authority, but also it sheds light on a technique of mind control Freeman calls “Remote Indoctrination.”
The amazing story of Pierre S. Freeman’s enslavement by a mind control cult begins in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, where Freeman was pursuing an engineering degree at the Faculte des Sciences. At this point, a star pupil, Freeman was seduced by the promises of economic freedom offered by the occult and began to invest more time in the Rosicrucian lessons than in his own engineering studies. These teachings were mostly delivered through monographs, developed by Spencer H. Lewis in the early part of the twentieth century. The monographs promised spiritual and material success when followed deliberately. Through these methods, the so-called Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis, commonly known as A.M.O.R.C., would equip the student to face the world from an elevated spiritual perspective. By entering into these teachings, Freeman would encounter severe poverty, homelessness, loss of career, family and friends.
According to the book, “The Prisoner of San Jose, “ the power of AMORC lay in its adherence to many mind control practices chronicled by experts like Stephen Hassan, author of “Combating Cult Mind Control” and Margaret Thaler Singer, now deceased, who wrote “Cults in Our Midst: the Hidden Menace in Our Everyday Lives.” Although Hassan and Singer’s cults were generally centers of highly aggressive in-your-face, person-to-person behavior, Pierre found, to his astonishment, the much less obvious techniques of remote indoctrination, practiced by AMORC, rendered the same kind of personality-altering conditions spoken of by both authors. Pierre found that understanding the conventional methods of cult indoctrination gave him the cues to uproot enough of his mental and emotional condition to reverse some of the psychological damage that led to his inability to let go of the cult and to allow him to begin to reverse engineer his psychological entrapment.
