Breaking through Barriers to Memories
Satanic cults do everything they can to make sure that those who have survived satanic ritual abuse do not remember their abuse. They do this by programming their victims to work against themselves so they will not be able to remember what they need to know for recovery. Freedom and healing come when memories are retrieved and diffused of their power by means of prayer administered by a knowledgeable Christian helper. (I purposely don’t use the word “counselor” here because people are conditioned into believing that only a licensed professional can successfully minister for satanic ritual abuse, and this simply is not true. All the credentials one needs to successfully minister to these people are a relationship with Jesus Christ and the call of God on their lives.)
A few days ago I had an interesting time of ministry that I thought would be a good illustration to other ministers, and also survivors, of how cults try to block memories and how to get past those blocks so healing can progress. With the knowledge I am about to share with you, I was able to know how to pray and help this lady through this particular memory block. (This stuff is always very extensive, so there are most likely other blocks to be breached.)
One important concept to know is that cults purposely create dissociated parts and assign jobs to them such that they work against the person in whom they live. These parts often don’t know they live in the person they are hindering or tormenting! All they know about life is their job which is the only identity they have. They are often “given” certain items via magic surgery to assist them in performing their job against the person. Our goal as ministers is to find out what their job is, ask them if they are willing to give up their job if Jesus would give them a better job, and then instruct them to give the implements employed in their job over to Jesus. Jesus always gives them something in return. You see, these parts are personality fragments that know nothing about life but their particularly assigned job, and their only possession is the one given them by the cult. Jesus, rather than take away the only identity they have, gives them a new one inherent in the gifts he gives them.
Meredith, the woman to whom I was ministering, would get overwhelmingly sleepy whenever we prayed for memories. She had had memories in the past, but suddenly we were at an impasse. I felt led to ask if anyone inside had the job of putting her to sleep should she try to remember things the cult had done to her. (As I recount what happened, please notice how often cult parts are associated with movie characters, especially Disney flicks. Cults often program their subjects using popular films. They have even had abused children act out scenes from those movies, but the cults change the story line a bit to include extreme abuse that often includes perverted sex and even murder.)
Here is how the ministry proceeded (in a nutshell):
Patricia: Is there someone inside Meredith who has the job of making sure she falls asleep whenever she tries to remember something that happened?
Meredith: The thing that came into my mind immediately was the magic wand they used at nap time when I was in kindergarten. They would walk around and touch each child on the head with the wand to make sure they fell asleep.
(Note: Cinderella’s fairy godmother had a magic wand. Perhaps that is where this concept came from. Today it would most likely come from Harry Potter.)
Patricia: Is there some part of Meredith who has a magic wand to put her to sleep whenever she tries to remember what happened?
Patricia: Would you be willing to give up your job if Jesus came to you and gave you a better job? Would you be willing to give him your magic wand for something better?
Patricia: Jesus, would you please come to this person and minister to her? (We wait a few seconds as Jesus ministers to her.) Then I ask, “Did she give her magic wand to Jesus?”
What did Jesus give her in return?
Meredith: He gave her wings.
Knowing how thorough cults are in making sure their programming is not discovered or removed, I strongly felt to ask if anyone else had the job of making Meredith fall asleep whenever she tried to remember. As I continued to minister and pray in this way, we found five more parts whose job it was to make her fall asleep. So there was a total of six parts which, of course, is a favorite number of power for cults.
The following list recounts the items each of the other parts gave to Jesus and what he gave them in return:
The second part had a spinning wheel like the one from “Sleeping Beauty” on which Meredith would prick her finger and fall asleep should she try to retrieve her memories. When Jesus came to remove the spinning wheel and minister to her, he gave her a little lamb.
The third part had fairy dust. When Jesus ministered to her, she gave him her fairy dust and he gave her a sword.
The fourth part had the job of singing a line from the song “Somewhere over the Rainbow.” The words were, “There’s a land that I’ve heard of once in a lullaby.” When she gave the song over to Jesus, he gave her the song, “Hosanna,” in return, (a song familiar to Meredith that she and her mother and sister would sing on their way to school when she was a child.)
The fifth part had sleeping pills. When she gave them to Jesus, he gave her sparkling living water.
The sixth, and last, part had anesthesia medicine. When she gave it to Jesus, he gave her the ability to “run and not be weary and to walk and not faint” (from Isaiah 40:31.)
Then when we felt that all the parts with this job were ministered to, Meredith smelled smelling salts!
Hopefully this little teaching and example will be of benefit to those who are ministering to God’s most wounded lambs, the satanically ritually abused and survivors of human trafficking.
