    Default From Trauma to Transformation : Kathy Collins' Story

    .
    Avalon member Kathy Collins (Kathy) is a Satanic Ritual Abuse survivor. Her story is astonishing, powerful, moving and inspiring. My interview with her is here.



    From the newsletter text, just published:

    This story offers a teaching for us all: that no matter what has happened to us — and things have happened, and continue to happen, and will always happen, to ALL of us — there is always the opportunity, the potential choice, to heal and genuinely move on to face the future unscarred.

    Kathy Collins (Avalon Forum member Kathy) is a survivor of Satanic Ritual Abuse, from an age so young it was before she could talk or understand anything that was happening to her. In the video, she shares a spine-chilling, brief account of what she was subjected to, and endured.

    But that's not the point. Kathy doesn't want to focus too much on those details, which many of us have heard before from Cathy O'Brien, Cisco Wheeler, Svali, and quite a few others. She has found a way to move on, re-integrate, and forgive — and her journey may be a model for us all.

    The title of this new video interview is From Trauma to Transformation : Kathy Collins' Story. That title was chosen because many people experience trauma in their lives, and it can stick them like glue. It doesn't matter whether it was Satanic Ritual Abuse, the loss of a loved one in dreadful circumstances, a terrible injury in war, or a betrayal in which one lost most everything one owned. All these things can make us feel like victims: disempowered, resentful, angry, embittered. But it doesn't have to be that way.

    For some of you reading this, this new interview may pack a bit of a punch. Please share it with anyone you may feel will benefit from the inspiration, strength and wisdom it contains.


    And do make sure you watch it right to the close. The Avalon credits at the end aren't the end of the video.

    ~~~~~~~~

    A final note: a few references and notes might be helpful to some for whom this disturbing subject is new. While the entire theme and focus is about transformation and leaving the past behind, we do have to understand what was there.


    • While the Illuminati are barely mentioned in the video, for those wanting first-hand facts, this site (the detailed personal testimony of an ex-Illuminati trainer with the pseudonym of Svali) is a goldmine of solid information: http://svalispeaks.com

    • Svali's history of the Illuminati is here: Chapter One: An Overview of The Illuminati

    • Cathy O'Brien and Mark Phillips' seminal book Trance-Formation of America is here. (Click here for the book as a series of web pages)

    • There are many YouTube videos where Cathy O'Brien shares her experiences, and they're easy to search for and find. MOST interestingly and significantly, just last night (7 August 2015), AFTER Kathy Collins' interview was finalized, exported and uploaded to YouTube, Kathy saw this short (12 min) video of Cathy O'Brien: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Laon3_ob54A.

      From 1:29 to 2:11 Cathy O'Brien exactly describes Kathy's experience in Bohemian Grove running naked and being hunted — the only difference being that (in Kathy's exact words) "in Bohemian Grove, they didn't give me any shoes to run in." She had never heard that had happened before to anyone else. Cathy O'Brien was describing exactly the same thing.

    • Kathy acknowledges healer Eric Thorton as being invaluable in her recovery. His website is here: http://ericthorton.com

    • And a personal note. When I started by own journey of research (many years ago, into everything that is concealed from us on this planet) like many others, I never dreamed of where the research would take me. If one is an honest journalist — or even an honest, curious, reader — one is obliged to follow the string trail of evidence and connections, wherever it may lead.

      And it leads to some extremely unpleasant and unsavory places. They can be hard to face. No-one wants to believe this is all real. This isn't the place to discuss this in detail, but in Cathy O'Brien's own, careful, words: "They are not like us." And they're not. They are something else, or they have something else inside them.

      As David Icke has often pointed out, no normal human being could do this kind of thing in an organized way. They have their own beliefs, methods, plans and agendas, and (at the moment) they're running our world. As Kathy Collins points out in her interview, her experience is just a microcosm of the experience of the entire planet: abuse, torture, exploitation, manipulation, and ruthless self-interest from those in power.

      But she calls on us all to understand, and forgive. The perpetrators are also those that have been abused themselves.

    None of the above is to detract in any way from Kathy Collins' powerful message of forgiveness and personal transformation. That is: if we want to live in a better world, that journey always has to start with ourselves — no matter what we've suffered through.

    As Kathy says: our lives don't have to be ruined if we've experienced terrible events.

    I would like to thank Kathy for her openness.

    That being said recovery is most important. Something I've been working on for quite some time.

    I was particularly triggered upon first seeing her in the setting with Lily's. Who chose lily's for this interview?

    Lily's are particularly in my case of importance due to their ancient use in the original rituals which I've time stamped and written about.

    I remember these rituals with great disdain. Original DNA memory that has carried it's way into my present life.

    DNA contained suppressed memories that came flooding out where the smell of lily's actually make me quite ill.

    Thank you Kathy and Bill in advance and I will be sharing more when I can regain some composure. I cannot write more because my hands are shaking....

    I have put the interview on the Saville thread, which in part is all about power full ,
    elites and satanic abuse as well. David Icke and others have been exposing
    this for decades and recently the papers have got on board to a degree. But they
    are still in positions of power and although former Prime Minister Edward Heath is
    the latest big name in the press , its still not given the depth of exposure it should.
    IE the Satanic , ancient ritual aspects and possible other links.

    Its still being reported on the level of sexual abuse , which is bad enough but
    not getting to the roots of these ritual killings and worse....

    My sister many years ago told me a story that in Shropshire in the UK, there were cloaked individuals sometimes out the fields in the middle of know where in the early hours of the morning who were involved in such activities, this is just another aspect to consider in amongst all the other activities that are on going , including UFOs, psychic phenomena, spiritual awakening and so forth, one thing I have learned it is all connected, and it would not surprise me if certain powerful officials, and those in unofficial positions are trying to utilise this negative force for their own ends. Would explain why the world is in chaos at present.

    I have also overcome dreadful circumstances by these satanists, and transcended the programming and trauma to a high degree, and used it for my benefit(my trauma continues to this day and is done by black project technology). I totally resonate with the beginning bits of the interview so far. So far this is my favorite interview by Project Avalon. Well done Bill

    Once you experience these sources you have zero doubt that they embody the word "evil". In my view "what is inside them" is Draco transhuman archetypes. From what I have experienced/been conveyed,...these archetypes include energetic body/chakra control(suppression/inversion of the heart chakra) and total mind control during rituals...during rituals dark extraterrestrials interface and experience the events in reality-based Virtual Reality(VR) and via electronic telepathy interfacing methodology..they can even perhaps take the soul out of body, and put their own soul in the body of the satanist while they do their heinous acts.... These are the real Archons in my view(Draco&co).

    The reason the human sources like this have elevated to the top of society is from dark extraterrestrial help, and their genetics in my view... The world would be a much different place without the assistance/interference our planet has taken on IMO(in both good and bad ways, as both polarity's of ETs have influenced our planet IMO). The black project groups are minions of dark extraterrestrials in my experiences. They are clearly not worthy of leading mankind... And these sources are the biggest leaders of mankind right now IMHO...

    In my experiences benevolent extraterrestrials are the 'unspoken' hidden hand that help people when it comes to the transhumanization aspect of this field(they could be called guardian angels/guides at times). They look out for people they care for/have a history with from my experiences. They can't stop everything, and can even seem impotent at times, but they are around watching over(with surveillance technology) the things these satanists do. One good thing about the very top of these groups is they are bound by some exopolitical rules. Which can result in things like decrees against lethal methods used against someone, rules against certain forms of transhumanization that can program someone's soul, limits on targeting and more...

    The targeted individual reality is basically these same satanists, except playing with near-godlike technology. Who knows what the world would be like right now with these psychopaths not having various exopolitical restrictions when it comes to transhumanization of people. They are still up to a lot of nefarious things.

    Looking forward to the rest of the interview. I think success stories in these fields are great, and the testimony may inspire others to come forward. This is such a jarring reality for many, it is hard to believe. I know I have just been in awe at how dark these groups are. It has definitely been a learning experience.

    Maybe Kathy could open up a free web blog and write about these things(I assume she doesn't have a blog at this time?). I'm sure there are a lot of survivors of this stuff out there. The more I came across of that particular testimony the more I learned about reality on Earth and the more sense my own case made... It definitely isn't all fluffy bunny stuff, but I would rather know reality than limit myself to all positive information...

    I'd also like to share a quote from an unpublished article of mine, that I turned into a website saying for my TI website:

    Instead of a 'victim', become a Survivor.

    This obviously does not apply to everyone, but its on every page of my TI website on the footer

    A powerful sharing and a validation of my own "list of to do's" in handling challenges.

    #1. For me is to not go it alone and never stop reaching out.

    #2. My favorite quote that has kept me going on this earth's journey:
    " I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do. " ~ Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909)

    #3. I always refer to 'them' as "The Poopie Dark Hats".....kind of takes the heavies off of the negativity.

    #3. Forgiveness = Love looking at an incident without assigning blame. (The best definition I've seen yet)

    Much thanks for sharing this.

    we on Earth are a puzzle not easily solved by ET's ... we can do good or we can do evil ... we are at our best when facing adversity ... may her story send a wave of hope to others fighting for their freedom to choose their own paths ... going to get the headphones and dig into the video ... what a great weekend it was ...

    As Bill has stated, this interview will help anyone who has been through something, I'd like to address other child abuse survivors (never a victim in my eyes, you're alive, you're a survivor).

    Watch this interview and know it's true, no matter how broken you feel, no matter how long you have struggled for some peace, know that your life is not ruined, as Kathy says, never give up. No matter how messy, haunted, helpless you feel, while getting through it, as long as you're alive, you're doing it. The key is to never give up.

    I'll tell you something really cool. You will heal and when you have healed sufficiently, you will begin to discover the treasures that await you. The nightmares you have every night, they will be transmuted into dreams, magical dreams, with the same intensity and vividness your nightmares had. Apply that same principle, of transmutation, to all other aspects of your mind, and you can begin to imagine other treasures that await you. Never forget this, your mind has an extraordinary capacity, far beyond others' minds.

    To Kathy, thank you. Bill, excellent job.

    P.S. Hugs for Shadowself, thanks for sharing.

    Kathy, that was astounding. You are astounding. Thank you for being you, and for sharing your story with us. Many, many people could tell their personal trauma history (not that it itself is easy to tell), but your story of transformation is especially amazing and magical in that it presents hope to those who have not yet transformed their personal trauma.

    If we as individuals are to heal, if we collectively are to heal, it will require the diligence to persevere through the stages of transformation, and some element of forgiveness (I love your use of Hoʻoponopono.)

    Bill, that was truly an excellent interview. Well done, (and I know you also did all of the technical aspect from recording through post-production.)

    To Kathy,

    You are a remarkably brave and courageous woman.
    Your words are inspiring to all regardless of specific history;

    "...thats one of the hard choices that people have to make about transformation because its so much easier to choose to stay in the pain that you are familiar with." (Approx. 27 min.)

    What a truly profound statement, describing a key mechanic of our collective enslavement.
    And for a dose of universal perspective;

    "If we have, for instance, a story about a hero, and we want to display his courage, he has to have something courageous to do." (Approx. 30 min.)

    Best wishes to all and to Kathy my warm regards,
    Art

    Good morning,

    I listened twice and started a third time until about halfway through I stopped and decided to listen to some Zen music and have some tea to contemplate.

    This forgiveness thing for me is particularly hard. I'll admit that. How do you forgive the murder of your son? How? Somebody please tell me how.

    I spend a time this morning cruising the internet on forgiveness. And murder is one of those supposed unforgivable sins as it's been said. I'm NOT particularly religious but found lots of religious text on forgiveness and ran into something I'd not seen before. It's called the 7 deadly sins.

    Here they are:


    A proud look

    A lying tongue

    Hands that shed innocent blood

    A heart that devises wicked plots

    Feet that are swift to run into mischief

    A deceitful witness that uttereth lies

    Him that soweth discord among brethren

    I was a bit shocked because that actually describes the governments of the world! Wow!

    Anyhow I'm smack in the middle of investigating my son's death. I'm finding evidence at every turn. I suppose if there is a god (I'm hopeful) that he shows some mercy for those involved and perhaps karma is alive and they will receive the same in return but I won't hold my breath. In the meantime forgiveness in not in the cards while I'm investigating. I truly would love to be able to as I know it's best for me. But it's not about me...he was innocent and they took one bright light in this world and snuffed it out.

    Here he is with Sting and the video is the night this was taken. I know he's walking in fields of gold....but this particular thing I...as his mother cannot forgive just yet.





    Edit to add:

    I do think forgiveness is warranted and Kathy's video is outstanding. Once again Thank you Kathy and Bill for producing this message.
