Psychological Power Begins With Mind Control

Watching a young girl of six years old being fitted with a head scarf in the Muslim tradition on a television news item was sickening. Australia is a hot climate country and even in winter the temperature can get rather high in Southern regions while in the north it can go into the thirties. The little girl ripped the scarf off and declared that it was too hot. She also goes to school where no other children are so adorned.

All over the country, however, girls as young as this are forced into these covers. Women of that faith may go even further with some of them wearing berkers. One must wonder, therefore, about the psychological power controlling their minds. What, indeed, is the benefit of any religious costume and the tradition that stands behind them?

Following my reincarnation and with knowledge that all religions are wrong and the gods they worship are fake my observation of them has been a lifetime event. Between lives and with the Spirit of the Universe, the only God, it was shown to me that undoing the brain-washing is a job I would undertake.

It created an urgency to understand as much as possible about what people believe and why? It would not be possible to complete it until the age of 45, in accord with the vision shown. At that age the Spirit commissioned me to remove the wall of churches and bring in the harvest.

Whether this rings true with people or not the facts are that the spiritual children of God will know that it is right. The Spirit has used visions and a special teaching to demonstrate the mysteries and confusion for which religions are responsible.

Institutional power begins with brain-washing of young children, just as with the girl above. While she was too young to have any comprehension about what the veil is for it made no difference to the mother who was inflicting it upon her and who also wore a veil.

Once they have control of the mind leaders manipulate such people into acts that are even against their will, such as being a suicide bomber. The amount of constant enforcement of such an idea that precedes one donning an explosive vest or flying an aeroplane full of people into a building has to be enormous and coming from many sources.

Reinforcing the brain washing are laws and social expectations that are often a major part of one’s upbringing. For instance, boys are reared with a hero motto to follow. They are usually prevented from showing their emotions and if required they may be called into service to give their lives for their country. Muslim boys may be reared to be martyrs.

This is also mind control because of the expectation of the community in which they grow. If they renege on their so-called ‘duty’ they could become outcasts and ridiculed as cowards.

All over there are people dedicated to wearing religious costumes and to following the laws set up by their leaders. Few want to rock the boat by declaring their disdain or that what they are doing is ridiculous and against their principles. So how much of that type of behaviour comes from within or is driven by social and religious pressure?

Wearing clothing outside of the norm suggests the person is expressing something extremely important to them. They are contracting to serve their god to which they have an allegiance. In areas where that being has no following, however, their appearance is often confronting and they can be set upon.

That allows for the mind control to have deep-seated roots and is even stronger than what the community or leaders expect. In my experience the Spirit has control of everyone and leading some to worship false gods and to follow tradition that few understand has to be spiritually driven. That also account for why the drive to express their allegiance in public or to die for it is so strong.

Client Engagement in Psychological Therapeutic Practice


Engagement is a vital part of therapy with clients – getting them interested in interacting with the therapist rather than being a passive recipient of analysis and clarification from a counselling situation. In this paper from over 35 years of client (patient) contact I will examine some of the techniques of engagement using models and exercises to bring out a more interactive experience in therapy.


Although in psychological thought, interactionism, is a well accepted concept such as in the idea of nature and nurture as not two separate concepts, but instead as a dynamic interaction of basic elements that through, a too and fro motion, create a unique outcome that expresses itself through the very being of our character, so we become a thinking, feeling, behaving human being of complex mental states and outcomes. As engagement is seen as a viable learning instrument, in that through situations, we can internalize and process information about the world and ourselves, leading to change and a fusion of self examination and outward understanding to become a new unique person with a changed perspective.

Some clients (patients) have fixation and so reject or refuse to accept change as this would challenge their world view. Security of the ego comes from not accepting alternatives to their comfort zone even when they acknowledge this is leading to poor functioning in everyday situations. It is through active engagement that we (the therapist) can help the client not only make internal mental changes but by using action can fundamentally move forward to a better mental health position. Insight is still the main tool of any well versed therapist – change can only be seen when the client accepts and understands their present position in relation to the past, present and future tenses of personal perception.

The word – stance – is the place is which you start. It is the beginning of engagement the client and therapist must have a clear view of where the client feels they are in relation to interactionism of both other people in their social circle and strangers. How they react to conflict and the situations of others. Do they possess empathy, insight, self-intelligence and the ability to engage at all levels? Intelligence does not mean IQ, but in fact smartness about your world and life challenges. Poor street children in South America can be street smart but not considered high IQ achievers, yet can survive and make money in a very difficult situation of danger and poverty. So self-intelligence is how smart are you about yourself. In engagement we hope to increase this self-intelligence to a new level of understanding.


To clarify what we mean by engagement we should have a definition of its common parlance. Engagement means to interact through an action to affect the outcome of our understanding either in mental change or physical outcomes. If a footballer engages with his teammates in a planned outcome through each playing a particular strategy then the expectations of the team is to win the game – however through these interactions that both succeed and fail – change is inevitable to the next planned play or actions. So in a therapeutic situation this can also apply. As the therapist shows or explains a model of interactive behaviour or understanding – the client can strategize their own position in relation to others and situations that are familiar to them and in doing so can make re-evaluations as to their present position and the position they wish to achieve.

Engagement then means involving the client in active participation in the therapy session in order to effect change that will have positive outcomes and challenge fixated thinking through client acknowledgement of their current position being dysfunctional at best.

In Practice:

My personal preference is always to have a whiteboard in my counselling room. It is a godsend for making lists such as – pros and cons – when talking to a woman considering an abortion for example – the engagement being the client creates the list and actively is participating in making choices. In other instances the whiteboard can act as a catalyst for thought as in a brainstorming session.

In the first session with a client, a model can help the client to outwardly focus on something outside of their internal thought process and so engage the client away from their initial concerns. By focusing on the model the client can concentrate on the whiteboard illustration and so focus on the concept at hand. For example – the, I’m OK – Your OK model of interactionism with others (1. Transactional Analysis E. Berne 1960 – developed by Franklin Ernst 1971) the client at first watches the model being created on the whiteboard by the therapist talking through the concepts and their meanings, at some point the therapist marks a circle on the diagram showing his healthy position while being realistic – the client is then invited to stand and using the whiteboard pen – mark their own perceived position. This engagement enables the client to have a point of reference in which to recognize a need for change and their current fixation on where they are right now. Many clients comment on their past position and so engaging in reflective thought about how they could be back at a healthier outcome if they could move from depression or anxiety for example.

Another example of engagement is in visualization techniques. Here the client is shown several illustrations that have no immediate obvious story, (ambiguous) the client is then asked to comment on the meaning of each picture. This engagement helps the client to project their own situation onto the illustrations. (Usually only 10 illustrations are used for a one hour session). The therapist then tells the client what most people saw and how their answers differed; this then led to some insight about how they personally perceived the world. This engaging process helps many clients to see their prejudices and fixed thinking about other people from their own perspective. (In projection work there is no right or wrong answer). Another projection technique foe interactionism is story telling visualization – here the client closes their eyes and listens to a story told by the therapist – as some point the client is asked to take over the story and make it their own. The initial story from the therapist contains both, visual, emotional and feelings (physical as well as emotional) to help the client experience the narrative. From this type of engagement the client experiences empathetic understanding by trying to engage in their own continued version. Often this technique of engagement creates interesting outcomes such as acknowledged fears, prejudices and insights prevail. One female patient reported upon hearing a story about a lake that she has in fact a fear of water (aquaphobia) which had never come up in therapy. One often used technique is to introduce a familiar stranger at the end of the story for the client to take over. Many clients recognize this person as someone they know and is an important figure in their lives (significant other) again often not reported in therapy as this is mostly is focused on an inward looking perspective. Engagement allowed the therapist to examine why this significant other was so important to the clients psychology.

In engagement of the client in therapy, both client and therapist can interact to create understanding and a point of reference in which to start the movement of mental, physical and emotional well-being. Most counselors training is short and often poorly led, they are given the basics of theory and the technique of listening, clarifying and analysis. Although the last one – analysis – if often a frightening prospect for most new counselors as they fear that making a comment that can be a self projection of their own prejudices. As in the Christian counselor who became angry when a patient wanted to divorce his wife to marry another woman. So most counselors fear engagement as a risk of self exposure of their own mental problems (and many have them) and it is why cognitive behavioural therapy is not popular amongst many counselors because it carries a degree of challenge to the clients faulty thinking or maladaptive perceptions. (Although CBT is very limited in its overall effectiveness, despite its popularity with psychiatry.)

Engagement is an educational approach to therapy in that by illustrating models of theory the client can make use of the simple approach that a model can provide in understanding a complex emotional feeling. It is this simplicity that engages the client in psychological insight and change. By interacting with the therapist, by standing and making models, by taking over narrative the client is engaged in real world change through action. A real life action has far more weight in change effectiveness than thoughtful insight. In other words, I can know it – but when I do it – I understand it.

One of my favourite models is the – I & Me – concept of the secret, private I and the socially created ME. 2. (S F Myler 2003) As in all simple models the client instantly understands the process and engages in active discussion about who he has created for other people and the one who he really is inside. The person (I) he keeps hidden and under control and the ME who if you asked five of his friends to describe him would refer to his social self (ME) as the real person they believe him to be. We can of course over time become the very ME we create but only by the subsuming of our secret I. When drawn and explained on a whiteboard many clients engage in a discussion about how they keep themselves in check when in the company of others. They can open up to allowing the therapist a glimpse into the murky world of the, I that we are all so good at keeping hidden.

Engagement Summery:

Most of these techniques of engagement I developed over many years of client interaction and successful outcomes to difficult cases (3. S F Myler 2017). The therapist must show courage and the ability to engage without barriers to their personal fears. It does take a certain amount of confidence and showmanship to engage successfully in engagement and is not for the faint hearted. Reciprocation is feared by most therapists who have been told in training not to expose their own feelings and views, however it is through reciprocity that clients can build trust in a therapist that is willing to show their own position in models to help the client realize it is OK to be exposed emotionally if the therapist has the confidence to show their own emotional wellbeing or vulnerability. Engagement is an interactive technique that helps the clients be actively engaged in their own therapy and to own the responsibility for the choices they make in life both hidden and observed.

Impact Of Psychological Capital On Job Performance

Psychological capital is a very trait of the human capital. It refers to a person’s self-efficacy, hope, optimism, and resiliency. In other words, the positive psychological strengths and capacities of an individual enable him/her to function productively. In the past, people tend to focus on the negative side of the human behavior like failure, burnout and helplessness. But nowadays, there is a shift of focus; from the weakness of a person to his/her strengths.

Hope is one of the psychological capital which is a positive motivational state of an individual to become successful or a strong desire to meet his/her goals. It means that a person has the will to accomplish or achieve an intended output or result. Apparently, hope constitutes the gut to succeed and the competence to identify, clarify, and pursue the ladder to success despite the risks encountered in the process. It also indicates desirable work attitudes.

Then, the resiliency of a person enables him/her to have a positive coping mechanism and adaptation in the face of significant risk or adversity. At the workplace, resilience is the positive psychological capacity to rebound or bounce back from adversity, uncertainty, conflict, failure, or even positive change, progress and increased responsibility. It is how a person can face negative events in life without breaking. In fact, a person becomes more resilient when he/she can effectively rise back from a previous setback. Resilient people usually succeed after a series of many failures without giving up.

On the other hand, optimism is the ability of an individual to make internal, stable, and global attributions regarding positive events such as a task accomplishment and those who attribute external, unstable, and specific reasons for negative events like a failure to meet a deadline. It is associated with a positive outcome of events including positive emotions and motivation. In short, optimistic people are realistic because it involves of what he/she can and cannot accomplish in a particular situation and hence adds to one’s efficacy and hope. In other words, realistic optimism is very dynamic and changeable and is considered state-like. In fact, human accomplishments and positive well-being require an optimistic sense of personal adequacy to defeat the numerous roadblocks to success.

Although hope and optimism are synonymous in nature but the optimism of a person comes in whenever an outcome is perceived as having substantial value. When directly applied to the workplace, it was found out to have a positive significant relationship with job performance and job satisfaction.

Finally, in terms of self-efficacy, it represents a positive belief and refers to the employee’s confidence about his or her abilities to mobilize the motivation, cognitive resources or courses of action needed to successfully execute a specific task within a given context. Again, self-efficacy was found to have a strong positive relationship with work-related performance though not an acquired trait. It is inherent in a person but can be developed over time.

Therefore, self-efficacy, hope, optimism, and resilience are important facets of human psychological capital. The combined motivational effects is broader and more effective than any one of the constructs individually. Each of these facets has a unique and common cognitive and motivational processes that enable excellent job performance.

Employee’s excellent job performance and satisfaction is not only due to the salary and fringe benefits they received from a company or an organization but mainly because they possess positive psychological capacity which is considered as a strong predictor of job success.
