Reports & Findings
Many survivors and therapists have shared their success in healing from trauma-based victimization, ritual abuse and mind control. Here we gather information on findings reported by survivors and therapists.
Two people who serve as shining examples of healing and teaching are Anneke Lucas and Cathy O’Brien. Both have extensively spoken and published on their experiences, on healing, and on the networks that orchestrated their abuse. Some of their most accessible testimony include:

Recovery and healing requires living with the past in a different way, examining the relationship with extreme evil, the concepts of free will and coercion, the structure of the mind, the nature of connectedness with life and with other humans. Goals would be to increase knowledge of the past and of our internal structure, increased flexibility of thought, and increased control over our own behavior. Many ritual abuse survivors passionately declare that they have an individual path that they must follow. Others are able to grasp the guidance of religion, twelve-step movements, or therapy and to adopt these concepts as their own. Every person’s path is unique, just as every person is unique. In general, there are several factors that aid in living with the reality of this extreme kind of abuse. First is a willingness, conscious or unconscious, to break the ties that bind us to violence. Second is the strength and luck to get away physically. And then there are qualities, such as soul, or love, or guiding spirit, that are hard to define but which shape our stance to ourselves and to the world. Trust yourself, whether you think you matter or not. Learn all you can, at your own pace. Discard ideas and people that feel demeaning or violent. Try and remember that, given your past experiences, every day that you do not kill, rape, or maim another person (and that includes yourself!) or an animal is a triumph. And your triumph, added to others, is the only hope we have of stopping the carnage.– Survivorship
