HH don't get me wrong, but when someone holds something over my head like 'you have to go thru me to get to your destination" my discernment alarm goes off big time. There wouldn't happen to be a TM after their activation techniques, would there? For me that would be the icing on the "big clue" cake.
This reminds me of eckankar teachings. A new age cult that feeds off of people by offering the way (btw with an annual membership fee to pay for aquiring the realestate needed along the way).
