One of the ongoing debates amongst those of us who’ve watched the Hoaxtead mobsters in action centres around the old “bad versus mad” question. Certain promoters of the Hampstead SRA hoax are fairly obviously mentally ill: we’re thinking of people like Arthur Kaoutal, who we understand was recently sectioned by the authorities in Australia.
Others, though, while they might seem “not quite right” in some ways, also seem to fall more on the “bad” end of the scale. In this category, we’d include people like Angela Power-Disney, whose nearly constant online harassment has made so many people’s lives difficult over the past three and a half years.
The other day, though, we learned something which, while it might not substantively change our opinion of Angela, certainly throws some of her behaviour into a slightly different light.
On one of her recent posts, Angela shared that she has been working with a counsellor, Linda, from an organisation called BRIDE Ministries. Our ears perked up: who is Linda, what are her qualifications as a counsellor, and what is BRIDE Ministries when it’s at home?
BRIDE Ministries: Prayer, Coaching, and…SRA/DID?
Readers will be unsurprised to learn that BRIDE Ministries is a Texas-based evangelical Christian organisation which offers the usual prayer resources, alongside a rather more interesting menu: they also offer “coaching” sessions in the area of Satanic ritual abuse and dissociative identity disorder.
The organisation’s leader, Daniel Duval, offers “solutions for highly complex dissociation due to satanic ritual abuse, government sponsored mind control agendas, and Illuminati programming”. Duval’s specialities include:
- Satanic Ritual Abuse, Government Sponsored Programming, Military Programming, and Illuminati Programming
- Mind Control, Pre-Conception Trauma, Pre-Birth Trauma, and Dissociative Disorders inclusive of Highly Complex DID
- Black-Outs, Repressed Memories, Wiped Memories, Missing Time
- Demonization, Soul Ties, Ancestral or Bloodline Bondage, Generational Abuse, Interface with Heavenly Powers
- Implants, Interface with Quantum Computers, Holograms, Wave-Based Technologies
- Bondage in Regions of Captivity including Alternate Timelines and Evil Realms
- Paranoia, Mood Swings, Narcissistic Tendencies, Mania, Mood Disorders
- Self-Sabotage, Suicidal Thoughts, Suicidal Tendencies, Self-Harm
- Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, Spiritual Abuse, Sexual Abuse
- Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, PTSD
- Codependency, Self-Esteem Issues, Difficulty in Relationships
- Gender and Sexual Identity Issues
- Grief, Broken Heartedness
- Mentoring, General Life Coaching
And all this amazing expertise is available for the low, low price of US$100 for a one-hour private session, US$200 for two hours. A bargain at twice the price.
Qualifications, you ask?
Duval lists his:
Daniel Duval graduated from The Ohio State University with a BSc in Microbiology with honors and distinction. After turning down a fellowship for a PhD in Virology from the University of Maryland at College Park, he attended Victory Bible Institute in Tulsa, OK. He was later licensed as a minister by Faith Ministries Alliance and discipled by Dr. Preston Bailey. He is the founder and Executive Director of BRIDE Ministries and the Senior Leader of The Fire Place Church.
Ah yes, the old “bachelor’s degree in microbiology totally qualifies me to counsel people with their pre-conception trauma issues” argument.
Angela’s counsellor, Linda Craig, has a slightly less impressive range of specialities and credentials:
Linda Craig provides biblically based coaching sessions for those dealing with severe issues, such as childhood abuse resulting in Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder), as well as, pastoral counsel for those looking for prayer and encouragement during a tough time.
Linda specialises in the following areas:
- Inner Healing, Deep Trauma, Fragmentation, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Satanic Ritual Abuse
- Lost Memories, Nightmares / Sleep Paralysis
- Demonization, Generational, Ancestral or Bloodline Bondage, Unwanted Bonds / Ties, Deliverance, Breaking Occult Practices
- Mood Swings, Narcissistic Tendencies, Mood Disorders
- Addictions, Substance Abuse, Cutting & Self-Harm / Self-Injuring Behavior
- Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, Sexual Molestation / Abuse
- Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks
- Self-Esteem Issues, Difficulty in Relationships
- Grief, Broken Heartedness
- Pre-Marital Counseling, Parenting Issues & Support, Marriage and Family Issues, Pastoral Counseling
- Stress Management & Reduction, Lifestyle Management
- Life Coaching, Spiritual Mentoring
While she doesn’t offer “coaching” in “Government Sponsored Programming, Military Programming, and Illuminati Programming”, and the website lists no academic qualifications whatsoever for the work she does, Linda’s prices are a bit less insane than Daniel’s: only US$50 for an hour.
We also notice that nowhere do Linda or Daniel mention that they are qualified mental health counsellors; rather, they refer to themselves as “coaches” or “pastoral counsellors”.
What does this mean in practice?
While most people who attend counselling of any sort are happy to keep that deeply personal experience private, we can always count on Angela to over-share. Sure enough, she has posted a number of videos consisting of counselling…er, “coaching” sessions with Linda. We found them quite enlightening.
After a brief discussion of the various tech issues Angela has experienced with Skype, Linda launches into prayer. She prays…and prays…and prays. About two-thirds of this video consists of Linda praying, sometimes “in tongues”, which sounds oddly like really badly spoken Spanish to us, but what do we know?
Even Angela starts to get visibly impatient, and mutters an encouraging “amen” a few times, but Linda doesn’t stop until nearly 20 minutes into a 30-minute video.
Angela gets to talk a bit about how she is a “government asset”, an assessment which Linda does not challenge in any way. Hint: real mental health workers might ask things like “what has happened which makes you think this?” Not Linda: she’s totally into the whole MK Ultra/Illuminati thing, apparently.
The session continues in a second video:
Linda prays some more, but this time Angela starts just talking over her, interrupting the prayer to talk about her own sense of deprivation as a child. We won’t include the entire session here, but here are a few examples of the interactions between Linda and Angela:
A: When I dissociate under stress—when I get a geographical thing, I have to test it, as in the past that has been my default.
L: Let’s pray first to put on lockdown any sabotaging parts—go before yourself and pray that—if you have someone still connected, who is still connected to the people who programmed you, they could sabotage you. Put on lockdown any parts of you that are getting in the way of what you’re doing, pray….
A: I have some family members who even though they’re coming awake, can still sabotage and trigger me.
L: Just pray against that.
A: I ponder in my heart like Mary did when she was pregnant with Jesus—until God gives me details—I was triggered into a time when I went into this— when I was six months into getting a green card in the USA, I got a prophecy to go home. The elders advised me to ask for three confirmations from God. I got them; it might have been God, because if I hadn’t gone home I may not have had my sons—bit I have a fear of making the wrong move—like when I walked away from four acres of land I thought that was from God, but it might have been from the enemy. I ask God for a fresh start, for the courage of my convictions, to take a brave step.
L: I agree with Angela, Lord God, thank you, you have your hand on her for protection, to help her to take steps, to accomplish one at a time—if she has any parts within her that are programmed to sabotage, I thank you God for freezing them, put them on lockdown, put them behind a door right now….
Or this, which seems to refer more specifically to dissociated “parts” of Angela’s personality:
L: What you brought up about the bestiality and all that stuff, that’s something that the enemy could have used against you.
A: What about the parts that we left under the waterfall, do we leave them there? What about the parts we left in the parlour? Do we leave them there?
L: For now we can, the Lord will show us when we want to do something. They need…they’ve been hurt for so long. Now the ones that are in the waterfall, they feel refreshed? They can come out and help with the littles, if they want to, they can move around wherever they want to. if They feel like they have a mission from the lord to help. That’s perfectly fine too, because they’ve been getting refreshment so they can share, if any of the littles or the twenties or the teens need to go over to the waterfall…
A: Yeah, that’s more what I felt, but the parlour scared me. And the food scared me. The closed space scared me. So Ikind of wanted to say, I’d like to say to all of them that they can freely move between the parlour and the waterfall.
L: All right, let’s do this: Lord God in the name of Jesus,i thank you for putting a line of angels around the area , you determine the circumference around the parlour and the waterfall, if you want to add parts like a park or something….I thank you for sending down as many angels as are needed to leave enough room to add something [and a whole lot more that we got really tired of transcribing, but you get the idea].
First things first: no, we have no idea what “bestiality” Linda is talking about. Whatever it was, we think it’s best left private.
And we cannot tell from this video whether it was Linda who introduced the idea of “parts” or “alters” to Angela, or whether she acquired them under the auspices of some other quack.
However, the harm that can be done by this kind of “coaching” is inestimable. Whatever mental health problems Angela might have started with, it seems unlikely that praying over her and making up stories about “waterfalls” and “parlours” and “littles” will do much to help her.
‘Breaking ties’ with Rupert?
Angela asks Linda for help dealing with the remains of her relationship with Rupert. This video was released in March 2017, while Rupert was on bail awaiting trial.
A. I hadn’t been in love for years, and then somebody who’s not really a Christian, she’s more of a new-ager, she sent me a message last spring and she said oh, I just feel like you’re going to fall in love and it’s going to be somebody who’s going to help you with your work, and you know, something you’ve waited for for a long time. Well maybe that was fortune-telling, because she’s not fully subjected to the Holy Spirit, but then came this Rupert, a CIA kind of guy, and then we really did seem to fall in love. We didn’t fornicate but we, you know…it felt like falling in love to me. And then he betrayed it all and went to England and got arrested and said it was Angie’s fault and this that and the other, and so I’ve been feeling…I listen to a teaching with Daniel and a girl and Dr Bailey, and she was talking about how some of her parts were still in love with her narcissistic abusive husband, but others of her parts knew that she should step away from him because he was her handler and he was very abusive. It really resonated with me because I thought parts of me know that I need to get a strategy and defend myself against Rupert’s betrayal which will affect the children I’m trying to protect, and thenbut there’s parts of me still love him and still hope he’ll get fixed, and still hope it was real and still hope he’ll come back….
L: Yeah, that’s the difficult part for you, but you can, at least you can recognize that you have parts that do that and….for me, I had that early 17-year-old first love, and God had to get that totally out of my heart beforeI could get here. That happened a year and a half ago. I mean, in the physical that happened, I saw him for what he really was. He wasn’t that 17-year-old boy that I fell in love with. He was an angry man that was full of unclean spirits that’s exactly who he is right now, and I pray for him, but I’m not in love with him, that is gone….God had to get rid of that, and I thought that was heart surgery! That was hell! But it’s gone now, and he had to take that out of my heart, create me a clean heart, oh God, renew my spirit….
A: I still…this is probably parts talking but I still nurse and still dream that he will finish the court case this summer and then he will come back to me and say I never stopped loving you, I just freaked out and got scared and I’m sorry, and this that and the other but I think I need to just decree and declare that I’m surrendering him back to God, whether he was “the one” again or not, but…
L: Your parts need to see the real him. They need…They may need…
A: I’ve seen some pretty bad stuff. I mean I’ve seen some beautiful stuff but I’ve seen some really deep betrayals.
L: You can’t put new wine in old skin and all those metaphors. You can’t have this part of him be wonderful and this part of him be crappy…
A: Yeah, it’s resonating with me that he’s a narcissist and he’s not good for me, even though some of his parts and some of my parts make magic. We just had the most amazing time. But I just feel that I want to spend this last 30 seconds or whatever just saying I ask you Lord and I give you full permission to sever whatever heart ties, I don’t think there was a soul tie because we didn’t fornicate, but maybe you say even to lust with the eyes is the same as adultery, so I repent of any lust that I showed towards him, and I ask you to sever any connection heart wise, soul wise, spirit wise even, and if you want to do anything more with that in the future that’s on you lord, but for me I’m saying I’m done with him, and I repent of any sins that I committed in that journey. I pray to you that I didn’t fornicate, but I’m just clear that I allowed myself to be betrayed. And I’m…I ask you to heal that Lord. and just create a clean heart, amen.
Amen indeed. And we sincerely hope that this is the last time we have to type the words “Angela” and “fornication” in the same blog post.
Putting that aside, though, once again we’re struck by Linda’s apparent inability to help Angela reflect meaningfully on her own issues. Whatever we might feel about Angela, it’s hard not to think that this sort of “coaching” has not helped her in any way, and that it might have exacerbated whatever problems she had going in.
There’s more—much more—to say about BRIDE Ministries, but we’ll save that for another post. Stay tuned….
