How Traumatised Was I By Friday Night’s Invasion?

Like everyone in attendance at the Universal Medicine presentation at Lennox Head on Friday night (12/10/12), I was stunned by David Millikan’s unprofessional behaviour. We all reacted differently. Some of us sat in stunned silence (I was one of these.) Others thought to reach for their mobile phone and start recording Millikan ranting on stage or perhaps recording the previously disguised film crew that had swung into action. Some rose to attempt to stand in front of the television cameras or to hold a piece of white paper up in front of the lens. Some retreated to the rest room. Some were crying. Children were confused. Some talked amongst themselves about the state of the world in which this could happen.

There was nowhere to go. The room had been sealed off in order to prevent more invaders and big cameras and lights from entering. I continued to sit in my chair until the last of the TV camera people had finally departed. There was a brief regrouping of those in attendance as we stood in a circle with each other. We discussed whether to continue with the weekend’s events or not. We collected our things and left.

Up until this point I was so stunned I wasn’t even able to think about how it was affecting me. I got in my car and headed home. My first point of consciousness after leaving the car park was when I found myself driving down a dark country road – not having any idea where I was. I had obviously taken a wrong turn somewhere. That may not sound unusual until I tell you that I have lived in the same community for 25 years. I have attended events at Lennox Head too many times to count. I have lived in the same house for 10 years. How could I have gotten lost driving from Lennox to my home?

The real question is: how traumatised was I by Friday night’s invasion of David Millikan and his film crew?

  1. Sometimes life events can have an impact on us for a long time before we even realise, this is the case with many childhood hurts. We carry things until one day the lightbulb switches on and we realise why something has happened.

  2. Abusive behaviour that is caused by someone purporting to be a friend is one of the lowest acts, and this would normally lose trust or faith in humanity, but the out-come from the above events is seen for the rorting of a system that is wanting more sensational stories.

  3. We are often more impacted than we expect especially when the truth we’ve reconnected to is flagrantely attacked and then we see how our media truly are and the monster we’ve let them become. I know I’ve often stood back and watched truth be over-ridden by lies and it’s always affected me non withstanding my efforts to not allow it to, but it has, for we know the truth and when it’s attacked the question then become where do we stand? I’m learning slowly to stand more with truth but still see those places where I don’t and I’m looking at and addressing them, that’s the only way I see now to live and be – to learn each day to be live more of the truth I’m reconnecting to and now know.

  4. I have no doubt many would have been shocked with what occurred. Not only would it have brought up much from this life but from previous lives we have watched truth be bullied by evil.

  5. Gayle thank you for sharing your experience, it must have been traumatising for many people, it is interesting how the media only focus on the outcome they want, and don’t take any responsibility for how their actions affect anyone else, or about portraying the truth.

  6. The absolute disregard for those in attendance is staggering. Whoever we are and whatever our role in life, surely having regard for each other is a basic part of being a human being…isn’t it? If it isn’t then we all have some very serious questions to ask ourselves.
