NXIVM–Keith Raniere, described by Wikipedia as “an American convicted felon,” leads a Cult that Brands Women. Recruiters don’t lead with hot pokers. They promise potential recruits their best selves, happiest lives, the usual boilerplate. Be it all, have it all, do it all. The promise is, unsurprisingly, not fulfilled. Members end up being sex slaves, having nothing, and doing recovery based activities meant to put the experience out of their minds.
From the outside looking in, the deception seems so clear but when nice people approach you, and show you love you’ve always wanted, it is all too easy to fall into the trap of believing your dream come true will last.
Enjoy the love and caring while it’s a auto you. There’s no need to miss out on goodness. While you’re at it do these two things:
Two Ways to Avoid Cults–X Hooke LifeHacks #6-7
1️⃣ Leaders of cults want sex and money. Do not give them your body. Do not give them access to other people’s bodies. Do not give them your money. Do not give them other people’s money. Do NOT give sex or money to really nice people who appear to make good on the offer to include you in their joyful world
2️⃣ the kind, loving people who want you to have it all, need to hear from you that you will not give up any sex or money. Not now, not ever, not for any reason. Other than that, you’re down with the program. Tell them, loudly and often, no sex, no money, no matter what. No matter how nice everyone seems, no matter how included you finally feel, no matter what voices are telling you to give in to get a greater reward, do not give sex or money. No exceptions.
Cult avoidance is a three part process. As a Harvard elite on Hawaii’s streets, I met many people who targeted me for, you guessed it, sex and money. They do not stick around once they get what they want. Nor do they stay with you if you refuse their advances. Better to have scammers leave while you’re still intact, body and soul.
