J. Z Knight channels Ramtha who will tell you how to think and how to live.

Guest View: Ramthas School of Enlightenment IS a Cult!! – Leave It Now

By Bobbie Joe

The Ramthas School of Enlightenment IS a cult!!

It’s registered as “Amusement & Entertainment” on it’s business license. Nothing has ever been proven regarding the existence of the 35,000 year old windbag [Ramtha]! Zero, zip, nada!!

The “experts” being referred to in the article Ramtha the One: We Are Not a Cult Like Nxivm and J. Z. Knight Must Not Be Compared to Keith Raniere were invited to an all expense’s paid trip to the Ramtha compound, and most had qualifications that had nothing to do with parapsychology or pseudo science.

J. Z. Knight used this “study” to try and legitimize herself to her sheep-like followers.

I’d ask the poor guy who wrote this post if he ever bothered to read it?

The author to Finding Enlightenment, J. Gordon Melton, Melton, was paid a ton of money by J.Z. Knight to write the book — so it’s hardly “unbiased”.

Then Knight came up with some bullshit DNA study that she says “proves” that her and rambles [while purportedly channeling Ramtha] have different DNA!

Think about that for a second –  when she channels/rambles, her DNA changes? Yet everything else about her stays the same?

Wouldn’t a complete change in DNA change every cell of the body into the new code?

Why all the bullshit? Why not just have Knight appear in front of a group of respected scientists and journalists when she is channeling/rambling Ramtha?

Her sheep are no longer the deep thinkers they once were, obviously. Her philosophy is all about using the power of your own mind to create the reality you desire. Sounds magical.

What one doesn’t realize is that the training she prescribes to get you there, is also taking away your mind in the process!! Hamsters on a wheel!!

J.Z. Knight says you can reverse aging by following her disciplines, yet her face is full of Botox, fillers and collagen!!

J. Z Knight

She claims there are no victims, unless her boyfriend cheats on her, or she needs to sue someone, then she’s allowed to play victim!!

Anyone who has “all the answers” wouldn’t need to charge people exorbitant prices to hear the “truth”!

Any group that trains you to shut off your inner voice and instincts to trust in another by making your instincts equal your “ego”, is brainwashing you into a mindless follower!!

Nobody willingly joins a cult. They are trying to find a better way to live their lives, and then before they realize, it’s a bait and switch. They’ve let someone else control their own mind thinking they were making it stronger, and more evolved. Blind trust in a charlatan.

Once realized, it takes a lot of time to trust yourself again.

There’s no greater punishment than knowing you’ve disappointed yourself!! Yet, I also believe, there’s no greater wisdom than coming to terms with it and recovering.

  • A documentary that blew my mind is Holy Hell, about a cult in Hollywood in the ’80s.

  • there is a time for most people and even for most societies when reason recedes and blind belief in obvious preposterous leaders takes hold.
    don’t disparage followers of JZ or KAR or others like them, because you haven’t taken a long hard look in the mirror and realize that you have been blindly following a charlatan despite ample evidence of fraud, just because you desire something he says only he can give you

  • ‘Any group that trains you to shut off your inner voice and instincts to trust in another by making your instincts equal your “ego”, is brainwashing you into a mindless follower’

    !00% on point. Thank you.

  • Similarities between Keith Raniere and an Australian charlatan …as well as Truth Church pedophiles…fathers raping daughters…ministers protecting abuses…

    Serge Benhayon established his religion, Universal Medicine, in 1999 after allegedly receiving a spiritual epiphany while sitting on the toilet.

    “I just gave myself a time to sit and feel that moment and I could feel something really, really beautiful,”

    Mr Benhayon claims to be the reincarnation of Leonardo da Vinci and calls himself the “Ascended Master” or “One of The Hierarchy”.

    He also tells his followers that they have experienced at least 2300 lives each.


  • As a former member of NXVIM and Ramtha, I just want to say I fell in a deep depression back in 2007 after I learned about Ramtha’s 2012 Prophecies…. that never happened. Check out the website http://www.enlightenmefree.com It’s from former Ramtha’s students.

  • Why not just have Knight appear in front of a group of respected scientists and journalists when she is channeling/rambling Ramtha?

    When you edited my statement with this, it doesn’t make sense. It should read “Why not have Ramtha appear in front….”. Meaning the 35,000 year old, 7 1/2 foot, cinnamon skinned warrior “lower his vibration” and just show himself?? Then you don’t need “experts” or DNA “proof”, do you?

  • As I noted in a response to the original piece, Melton is a notorious apologist-for-hire serving various cults that other pay him directly or underwrite the institutes and organizations that he is part of. He does have a position at a fairly respectable university, but not quite a prestigious one – and he isn’t considered highly outside of the circle of similar opportunists, and the groups that pay for their services.

    And that’s a good point, if Ramtha were real and had lived in Atlantis, there’d be some evidence – like he’d be able to help archaeologists find its exact location. There have been plenty of finds of what did actually exist of human civilization 35,000 years ago, during the Upper Paleolithic or Late Stone Age – it was rather primitive, and there are none of the physical signs for instance of trade artifacts that would have existed had there been an advanced civilization anywhere, nor cultural indicators such as major advances in linguistic development or agriculture that would have radiated out from any such civilization.

      • That’s the “Big Lie”. Similar to Raniere being the smartest man in the world! It’s outrageous! I don’t think anyone believes it when they first walk in, but after you’ve completed your “Beginners” and done something incredible for yourself (accomplishing a goal while blindfolded, basically) while enduring the sleep deprivation and endless hours of talks, the illogical becomes logical. They use “science” to prove their theories/philosophies, and the brainwashing is done in a very cerebral way. I learned a lot about the brain and the body. I read endless books on quantum physics. But at a certain point, you start to notice that the Topics correlated to JZ’s personal drama. If she was happy and in love, we leaned about love. If she was angry and scorned…?? You get the infamous videos of her worst drunken meltdown(s)!
