Erika Awakening: Delusional, Ditzy And Dumb As A Dildo?

Dear Fraudhaters,

Usually, I post videos instead of writing long copy.

But what I have to say about Erika is important enough to merit some serious thinking. And so I’m going to express that in writing.

Erika’s Delusional Thought System

Fundamentally, Erika believes in the following very delusional ideas:

1. The Universe exists to make you happy.

2. The Universe can be your private wishing well, IF you know how to do it.

3. The key to effortlessly getting the Universe to give you what you want is to remove your blocking negative emotions like shame, guilt, fear, etc.

4. The revolutionary and by far most world-shaking method to achieve #3 is through Erika’s $20,000 Miracle Course. 

Let’s deal with these delusions, one at a time by replacing them with truths.

1. The Universe doesn’t give a shit if you are happy or not. The notion that everything exists (and indeed came into existence for countless billions of years before you were ever born) just so you, a speck of dust that exists for a mere fragment of time, can lose that extra stubborn ten pounds off your ass, get your dream car, or meet your “soul mate” is beyond absurd.

It’s an incredibly childish view, and it’s based on two equally false sub-beliefs:

A. The earth is the center of the Universe

B. You, individually, are the most important being on earth.

But we can also just observe, look around and say: if the Universe exists to make humans happy, the Universe is doing a damned fucked-up job.

Consider that over a billion people wake up every day without clean drinking water or any form of working sanitation, bathing and drinking the same water in which they defecate.  Well over a billion children live in abject poverty, dancing on the edge of starvation.

Oh…hey..the Universe would help all of them if they’d just join Erika’s program.

2. The Universe is NOT your “wishing well”. Why would it be?  The Universe has existed long before humans came on the scene and will likely be here long after we are gone.    How could something that big and that ancient exist just so you could get what you want?  It’s absurd on the face of it.

3. Come on now.  The only thing standing between you and making a bazillion dollars as the next Bill Gates is removing your shame, fear and guilt around money? Really?

This displays an incredibly 3 year old view of how wealth and it’s creation works.  As if it magically drops from “money trees” or rivers of gold that flow forth from the bosom of Cornucopia.

A lot goes into making money; discipline, vision, flexibility, talent, team building, persistence and sometimes, dumb luck.

The idea that anyone can be wealthy if they just remove their “shame” is like saying anyone can be an NBA basketball player if they just remove their “shame” around wearing shorts, a jersey and crashing into giant people.

Honestly, how could anyone with even a 5 year old’s ability to think buy into this shit?

4. Really?  So since the dawn of mankind, no greater thinker, healer or “miracle” worker has ever arisen, and those who have, merely cleared the dust off the trail for the amazing Erika Awackowitch, aka Erika Frick, 40 + year old celibate drama queen and wanna be Internet gazillionaire?

It’s a pretty tall claim. And tall claims require lots of evidence, of which Erika provides almost none. Even her “miracle” testimonials are pretty fucking tame.

Such as:

“I am getting a £600 tax rebate!”

“To be honest I only tapped on an extra £2000 this month during the 30 day challenge. I came home this evening and opened a letter from the Inland Revenue and I am getting a £600 tax rebate. VICTORY! :-D

- Matthew from the United Kingdom

Well, nice the tax man is giving you some nice pounds sterling back.  But what I fail to see is:

A. Any correlation or causation between anything he “tapped” and his getting the refund.

B. Any evidence that “the Universe” even had two pussy-farts to do with it.

Hey: the guy had a refund coming. He got it.  Millions of people who DON’T “tap” get refunds.  Explain that, Erika.

By the way, lest you think I’m exaggerating, it’s Erika herself that says this qualifies as a “miracle”. Here we go, quoting the crazy one:

“Miracles are being reported left and right. Not just little miracles. BIG miracles. As of the writing of this paragraph, it has not yet been even 30 days yet … and here are some of the miracles we have already seen:

A 600 pound tax rebate is a “BIG miracle”?

No, it’s a procedural result from a giant bureaucracy.

A miracle would be that Inland Revenue loses any record that this guy ever existed, his bank account is magically credited back every penny of tax he’s ever paid in his life, and he gets to keep whatever he earns, forever, tax free, because his records continue to magically disappear.

Now even I might tap for that.

But Ross You Fucking Hypocrite…

Now I had better be thorough and address something. Because it’s true that I have a course on Magick.

However, it has nothing(and I mean NOTHING) to do with any notion that the Universe cares about you, is here to make you happy, or that you can get whatever(indeed, anything at all) by just wishing or clearing up your blocks.

It has a lot to do with developing the will, focus, imagination, altered state and movement to build in aspects of your personality that have been lacking. And yes, I do suspect it is possible to contact an aspect of reality that is “non-local”.   But working with it is inconsistent, flakey, tricky and takes discipline and practice. And even then, you don’t always get what you want.

That’s a far, far cry from what Erika is teaching. And even at that, I can say that what I offer are only  my strong suspicions about how things work. I may be wrong and do not for a moment proclaim it as true, but only a model that tends to work as predicted, your mileage will vary.

Erika, you are truly off your nut with this Course In Miracles inspired crap of yours. If you have any response, you are welcome to come in here and post anything you have to say.

RJ

P.S. You really should fix those droopy tits.

    Ross this is probably your best written and most accurate fraud call. 20000 just to get smoke blown up your ass. did the universe exist for the enjoyment of the 11 million people killed in Nazi Extermination camps in WWII?? It took me a while to come to terms with it but you and select other people in this industry (maybe 5 others at best) are the only people who aren’t ripping students off and who aren’t committing fraud. Long live sargy the cat’s legacy!

  2. double t says:

    Erika is not the only wacko teaching this crap, and if people really want to buy into this foolishness the same shit is taught for a lot less money by Joe Nunziata, who gives away a lot of his stuff online for free, and his books are all less than $20.

    It is interesting what people define as miracles. Often what one person calls a miracle is either simply an over inflated claim, natural laws of physics being misunderstood, or events out of one’s ordinary understanding that appear miraculous. I find nothing out of the ordinary in a tax refund, now, if I, a yank, start getting tax refunds from a country in which I have never done business, I may have to re-evaluate my point of view.

    I have met others who possess such unusual lines of thought. Here’s one, “all the wealth you have amassed in previous lifetimes is yours to claim.” I am still waiting.

    In life, you need to be careful who you select as mentors, or gurus. The world is full of charlatans, and fakes, people who would take massive amounts of another’s hard earn money for the snake oil they sell. In another day and age they were called carpetbaggers.

    Alas, as has been seen far too many times, a fool and his money are soon parted, tho the pitch be different, the exchange is always the same, something for nothing.

  3. October Jack says:

    I heard her new course is called “Feel The Cosmic Vibrations” and includes a free toy with a few Double A Batteries to boot lol

  4. the first of the mohicans says:

    what Erika does is just reselling “The Secret” to people who never heard of it before, the internet is a large place

    the thing is, people misunderstand this visualization/manifestation and dumb it down

    it`s not about creating something new, that`s never been out there

    it`s you, shifting your focus from the emotional clutter, to the stuff you want, thus starting to notice the new opportunities

    read pls, the guy who invented it, says this shit is about hypnotizing yourself into success

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/7848062/Neville-Goddard-Feeling-is-the-Secret

    most people do the negative version of it, while they are going home they spin the images and situations in their head, of how much they hate their jobs and the boss is a jerk, thus programming themselves for more of it

    the subconscious is like a 4 year old child, can`t tell wrong from right, it only deals with “familiar” and “new”

    if you want to deliver something potent in your seminars, you might include this stuff

    why?

    if someone believes women “bite”, when that guy will be around women, he`ll have extremely weird body language

    the woman sees that, than thinks “this guy is a wacko, he behaves like one, I better keep him away”, so the guy gets rejected, while he is reinforcing his own beliefs “I knew it, women are bitches”

  5. dan says:

    What the fuck is up with this whole project.
    Yeah i know you’ll replay with “i’m just doing an exposing frauds job here” but the tone and flavour scream “i´m all butthurt”.
    You are not achieving anything this way. You are not going to change minds, you are not going to sell products to internet drama tourist kiddies, you are not going to be best friends with them either since they are weak no backbone rats. You are not going to win. Anything.

    To be honest i kinda like you and what you have to say. You aren’t stupid or lacking the right content in your brains. On some level you know all of the above.

    So why do you have that aura of bullshit drama around you? Grow out of that crap man.
    As long as this site right here is around no one will take you serious and you will always be “that freak” you know… that creepy manipulative sniffing asses freak.

    The thing is besides everything TD for instance is cool in my book and i’d love to have you there as well but as of now you are doing too much to negate all the good stuff you drop in the big picture.

    So let me repeat… WHY?

    do some soulsearching there

    • Ross Jeffries says:

      @Dan Well, Dan, if seeming “cool” is the most important thing in life to you, we obviously have different values. And if you can’t see honest outrage and disgust when it is staring you in the face, that’s also your problem.

      Drama? No, this is incisive, accurate, legit criticism.

      And if you don’t like it, why do you read the blog?

  6. Iceman says:

    a miracle would be:

    peace in the world
    people in Africa having enough food
    or the end of corruption

    I don’t think anyone can tap that to happen…

  7. Dead on, Rossman – |Whether you’re a Tony Robbins fan he spoke at one of these Secret events and basically said, “Uh, focus only works if it’s followed up massive action.”

    I always struggle with this about dream content. I want to analyze my dreams and figure out their “meaning” but then I realize that my dog and cat have nightmares and good dreams, too. And then I stop analyzing. Ha.

    nice try on the “magick” defense. of course you won’t print this.

    • Ross Jeffries says:

      @Saber

      While I’ve agreed to speak I have in no way “partnered” with these people.

      I have, in fact, refused to in any way promote their event to my list and receive not one penny from them for appearing, nor do I sell anything when I am there.

      I consider my presence there to be the most radical possible way to disrupt their mission, since once people experience ME as a teacher, they are very unlikely to even listen to anyone else presenting, nor spend a penny further.

      But….this time I have a BIGGGG surprise in store so I doubt I’ll ever be invited back.

      Hint: think Comedy Central.

      RJ

      • Oleg Cherkasky says:

        You aren’t going to do a Darren Frost inspired stand-up routine are you?

        • Ross Jeffries says:

          @Oleg Could be, fuckey.

          • Stephane Hemon but not actually Stephane Hemon says:

            On the bottom of the http://www.globalpickupconference.com/speakers.htm page, is that Leah Remini’s head pasted onto Shakira’s body? Or even just all Leah Remini from an old Maxim shoot? Of all the images of anyone everywhere to choose from… that just seems so randomly bizarre and silly to me.

            And artificial. The artificiality of this scene is continually astounding whenever I stumble onto one of these sales pages.

      • Saber says:

        Ross,

        Can you post the Comedy Central style roast with transcripts here after the conference to prove to your readers that presenters like Erika and Wygant aren’t your business partners and you haven’t sold out your principles and turned into a hypocrite by being there??

        • Ross Jeffries says:

          @Saber

          If you can provide even a shred of evidence that I am promoting the event or obtaining one penny, then you have a right to make requests like this.

          I don’t plan on recording my presentation. Nor did I say for sure it would be “Comedy Central”.

          I hate Wygant and Erika, frauds and fools the both of them.

          RJ

          • Saber says:

            Where does the $1,499 per head plus royalties from the sales of the videotapes of the conference go if you don’t collect a cent??

            Come on, don’t tell me you don’t know. How can you present at a conference and not know?

            Very devious e-mail notification blast by Vince, I might add. Price goes up to $1,499 on Dec. 15 and I don’t even get the e-mail notification until a few days after the 15th.

        • Alex Q. says:

          Saber,

          I can assure you that Erika would never partner with RJ.

      • Father Russia says:

        your message is very important to us

        your stuff is logical and makes sense

        and I`m curious

        sarging on New Years Eve?

        now that`s lame

        what`s next?

        walking with your erection in your hand and hitting on junkies in the park, while ben franklin is glued to your forehead

        yeah baby yeah

        crysis game

  10. worovme says:

    Haha. Erika was banned from the 21 Convention because Anthony Dream was creeped out. LOL: http://www.thedreamlounge.net/2011/06/23/what-happened-to-erika-awakening/

    • St. Jimmy says:

      Not a big dream fan, but I respect him more for booting her.

    • Alex Q. says:

      Anthony Johnson also banned Vince Kelvin from same convention because of stupid bullshit excuses, and treatment of both VK, and a fan of Erika’s who e-mailed him (search Google for transcripts) was very douchey.

      I had no opinion on it but then after I read those things I considered Anthony Johnson a hardcore douche.

  11. Oleg Cherkasky says:

    “The notion that everything exists (and indeed came into existence for countless billions of years before you were ever born) just so you, a speck of dust that exists for a mere fragment of time, can lose that extra stubborn ten pounds off your ass, get your dream car, or meet your “soul mate” is beyond absurd.”

    Reading this I get reminded of a video I saw on youtube with Richard Dawkins talking about the same topic and Douglas Adams reading a small portion of his guide to the galaxy book. The video is about Atheism.

    Just out of curiosity Ross, are you an Atheist?

    I’m not trying to imply that it’s bad, I just noticed some consistent things whenever you write about the universe and religion.

  12. James says:

    Hey Ross, I love this blog and visit at least every other day. Your articles are amusing and informative. I have a question. Would you be able to provide a short list of people in this business who you actually trust? I know that isn’t the “point” of this blog but would you be interested in doing that?

    • Ross Jeffries says:

      @James,

      That’s a short fucking list. And anything I say(ANYTHING) will be used as ammo to attack me with accusations that I am in “business” with these people.
      So…thanks but no thanks.

      RJ

      • Oberon says:

        I don`t think that will be the case Ross, just because you think in a certain way, that doesn`t mean the rest of the guys is exactly like that

        unless the only company you keep around yourself are guys 100% just like you

        you know pickup is about fucking women, period

        but all you pua and master seducer guys do is fuck each other in the head

        my experience tells me, that guys that get laid regularly are calm, they have this thing of “imperturbability” and don`t give a fuck about small time bs

        the guys who don`t get laid and are lost in some sort of fantasy land, may that be in a pc game or in some darker corner of their mind

        well, those are the one`s that eat up each other like rats, between two sessions of masturbation

        but who am I to make such quick judgements upon anyone?

        so let`s watch a cheesy movie line on the topic

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-zNnq7kHMI

        • James says:

          You’re missing Ross’ point. He does say that there exist honest good talented people who are in the business of helping men get women successfully. But if he were to endorse even unofficially anyone, there would be a shitstorm that he is in league with them. Since even the suggestion that he is in league will likely incite doubt, he would rather just not get into it at all.

          Too much risk for him and nowhere near enough reward.

  13. Nick says:

    I’ve recommended to her several times if she could actually do these kinds of miracles, why not skip doing lousy 500 pound refund tax refund checks and go for the million dollars offered by the James Randi Educational Foundation:

    http://www.randi.org/research/

    …she always promptly removes my links to it.

    But I think if people are plopping down 20,000 bucks a pop…a million dollar miracle is definitely in order.

  14. Clarity says:

    Great… another white woman culturally appropriating methods and practices from indigenous culture for profit.

  15. Michael says:

    Yeah, you know the thing that disturbs me the most about Erika’s assertions and ‘teachings’ is that they are really a perverted understanding of the authentic spirituality. It’s as if, coming to realize one’s non-local nature, one mistakes the whole world as being a possession that should cater to our little local needs and graspings. When you notice the little “me” and the big “me” but confuse one for the other, it is a really sad thing.

  16. Curious George says:

    Have you seen the latest facebook drama involving Bravo and Erica? It’s classic.
    Somebody posted a joke a photo of Erica with the words “wants Bravo’s cock” superimposed upon it. Erica freaked and has responded by blocking everyone you ‘likes’ it. But the best part is that a number of her clients are jumping all over her scam. Here are a couple of excerpts.

    Bill: Erika, I took a big step in faith to work with you back in September and paid you a large chunk of change and I must say the way you responded after I chose not to continue paying your ridiculously high prices was revealing. You defriended me back when I wouldn’t pay for your 20 K program. That’s cool if you want to defriend me but it showed me a side of you that is dark and focused on extorting people of all their worth for the hope of a promise for financial gain. The further I have gotten away from working with you the more I have realized that the whole premise of your work to escape the world (ACIM) and the obsessive focus on making tons of money is not based in the world I live in and I have become more happy and whole the further I have gotten away from that whole way of thinking you teach. When I met you I was at a very vulnerable time in my life and I feel you knew that and took advantage of that fact by promising results and I took the bait because you are a master salesperson. All I gotta say is that eventually all of your actions and motivation are gonna catch up to you and it is refreshing that Bravo is calling you out now for it. I will give you some credit though to balance out this response: Your work does help bring movement into people’s lives and you do have a sharp intuition and your sessions can be very powerful BUT when you bring up people’s emotional vulnerabilities without a safe container and without more sensitivity to other people’s value systems it can be dangerous.

    Jan: As another one of Erika’s former clients who has also been blocked, I’ve learned a very valuable lesson about human nature; a very dark side of it. Erika’s and my own. Sadly, it’s very easy to use sound spiritual principals and allow ego to twist these principals to fit an individual version of reality; a reality that miraculously benefits the alleged originator the most. HBR is EFT rebranded and specifically focused on beliefs, for those who didn’t know. Throughout antiquity these people have been called names like con-men, or women in this instance, charlatans, ego-maniacs, cult-leaders, etc. I’ll call you an expensive illuminator. It was a very expensive lesson, however it’s been said that the best lessons are those you pay for. In all sincerity, Thank you Erika for teaching me about the dangers of ego blindness, massively, over-inflated ego, dark manipulation, and re-illuminating what my values are on my journey. It was only a matter of time before the universal law of karma would meet up with you.
    Bill, in many ways I agree with you. Let’s remember and appreciate the many lessons in the interaction. You’re eyes are now wide open to those who desire to serve others, and those who appear to serve others while mainly seeking to enrich themselves through others. We’ve also learned to honor our own intuitions. Those are VERY empowering positions to be in.

    RJ, this just proves your case … not that it needed proving!

  17. CTK says:

    Ross,

    As a long-time supernatural researcher with a great deal of skepticism, your comment:

    “And yes, I do suspect it is possible to contact an aspect of reality that is “non-local”. But working with it is inconsistent, flakey, tricky and takes discipline and practice. And even then, you don’t always get what you want.”

    I think is totally accurate. “The Secret” is something people capitalize on for $$$, and Erika is clearly just milking that well. At the same time, we do seem to slowly attract weird things into our life based on our energy or frequency. Like having a self-hating belief system actually draws other people like that into your life. There is also truth to beliefs and bodily health. Placebos are scientifically proven to work. I’ve cured sicknesses and injuries through focus.

    But can you get parking spaces, money in your bank account, or “miracles” and cats and dogs falling out of the sky? Absolutely not or we’d be living in some kind of chaos dimension where everybody makes all kinds of random shit happen all the time.

    • Ross Jeffries says:

      @CTK,

      Re: dogs falling out of the sky. I dunno. Check out the work of Charles Fort. Read some John Keel and chase it with some Jacques Vallee. I suspect “external reality” may not always be quite so “external” or “real” as we suspect. But again, it’s flakey.
