Spin Programming—A form of Mind Control
The subject of Spin Programming to control the mind is a controversial topic. I got this information from a paper by John D. Lovern Ph.D. He presented
this at the Sixth Western Clinical Conference on Multiple Personality and Dissociation in Irvine, Ca.
The information in the paper was taken from seven cases of patients with multiple personalities, all which had histories of ritual abuse. These
patients were all females ranging in the mid-twenties to mid-forties. The patients were diagnosed with complex personality disorder due to the ritual
abuse by satanic or similar cults.
The patients had been in therapy for about a year before disclosing any information on spin programming. They were all white, the majority were
married, and over-half were employed full time. College degrees ranged from two year to masters degrees.
The information about spin programming was usually disclosed when the patient and therapist were brainstorming about the programming history. Some
info was revealed spontaneously, or with direct questioning. The technique used was previously unknown to the therapists. In this paper, the technique
is called “Spin Programming.”
Ritual abuse can involve a technique known as “spin programming.” Ritual abuse, a brutal form of abuse given to children, teenagers, and adults,
uses physical, sexual, and psychological abuse to control the victim.
Therapists that have been working with ritual abuse victims will often discover evidence that patients have been abused with mind control techniques,
often called programming. Self-destructive behaviors such as contemplating suicide, and self-mutilation were often found by the victims responding to
different types of cues, such as numbers or signals. Also, outbursts of negative emotions, fearing the therapist, and other such behavior patterns
Spin programming is designed to make emotions such as pain, spread throughout the body. It is then spread to the personality to help crush it, so it
can be rebuilt in the image the programmer sees fit. Many times, this is done on children, because they are so vulnerable and can easily be molded.
This method is also used to harass adults and to disrupt their pattern of thinking. This type of programming is often done in cults to abolish
The spin program is based on actual physical spinning and cognitive/imagery training. This, along with repetition and practice is designed to create
internal multi-alter egos: a multiple personality disorder. The physical abuse is usually severe, and torture and killing are usually involved. Sexual
abuse is used to humiliate the victim, cause pain, and to show them that they are slaves. Psychological abuse uses mind control techniques and mind
Physical Mechanics of Spin Programming
Victims who endure spin therapy are physically spun. They are usually drugged at the time, with hypnotic drugs, sedatives, and anti-nausea drugs.
Spinning can include being spun horizontal, like a record player, vertical, like the wheel of fortune wheel, inside a cylinder, and even hanging
upside down. The victims are bombarded by lights, (colored or white) or listen to verbal commands, music, or rhythms. Sometimes, they experience
addition pain, tied in with the pain of spinning.
Usually, these victims have sensitivity to these cues of light and sounds, and will respond to them negatively. These can be used to punish the person
without having to physically spin them.
Stages of Life the Programming is done:
1. Programming at the earliest stages of life, often birth. This is favored, because this is the time when minds are growing and learning, and the
programmer doesn’t have a lot of built walls to break down and rebuild, unlike with the teen or adult.
2. Current or recent programming or reprogramming that can disrupt the older persons psychotherapy.
Programming a person can target a single alter or a small group of alters. Alters are also known as sub-personalities. Spin programming, however,
often targets the entire system of the person, and is also called Global Targeting.
Spin Programming and its Effects
Examples of how spin programming is spread include: physical pain, depression, apathy, hopelessness, confusion, lethargy, sleepiness, self-destructive
urges, suicidal thoughts, fear of rejection, terror, jealousy, doubt, suspicion, use of drugs and alcohol and many more. These can be spread
throughout the system by a programmer to disrupt the personality and to erode the functioning of the person.
Currently Activated Program: Global effects, symptoms that can feel and occur like a storm, dizziness and spinning inside, pressure. Also, many
individuals will use spinning-related images and language.
Physical Effects: Victims tend move about at moments when they are reliving the spinning sensations. They may have a blank state and be ready to dodge
pain, wherever it may come from. Any type of rhythmic or circular motion can be noticed. It is interesting to note that these movements are not your
typical nervous jerk motions. Spin programming movements are slower, graceful, more subtle, and fluid-like in nature.
Global Effect Symptoms: The person will typically use the word “we” to talk about themselves. One can conclude they are involving the alters
(sub-personalities) and that the person is referring to him/herself as a “we” rather than I. For example, instead of saying, “I have to go
now,” they will say, “We have to go now.”
Stormy Symptoms: Often like quick temper tantrums, these outbursts will build in intensity until they peak. They will gradually diminish and then
Pressue and Dizziness and Sense of Spinning: Because spin programming uses physical spinning and force, victims will often get headaches, vision
distortions, and speech disruptions. Victims will often still feel a sense of dizziness and spinning inside at times, and feel like their whole body
is out of balance.
The Imagery and Vocabulary of Spin Programming
Victims will often symbolize their spinning into images and words. The typical vocabulary recorded include: vortex, tornado, falling, sinking,
exploding, whirling, and twirling. Likewise, images are invoked.
Patients victimized by spin programming often obsessively draw and make doodles of their feelings. Many of the drawings reflect the image of
One of the victims of this disorder felt the diagram showing multiple personalities or alters should be circular (b) instead of tree shaped (a). One
alter could branch off to other alters to form secondary alters. Then in turn, the secondary alters could branch off and form tertiary alters. She
felt like the most powerful alters were in the center of the diagram. In a multiple within a multiple subsystem, the original alter can threaten to
activate and replay the pain caused in order to cause more trauma. This can lead to greater breakdown of the victim.
Long Term Effects of Spin Training
Spin training is usually done over a number of years, and includes physical spinning, cognitive imagery, pain, and sending out of pain and emotions to
other alters. This training is very successful to the programmers. The victims actually become the representation of the spinning object. The
victims’ link spinning with the send of the emotions so that with the sending out of pain, emotions, and other feelings to other alters, the two
experiences are inseparable and indistinguishable. Spinning can be done at such a force (physically and internally) that the faster they spin, the
more pain or feelings are sent out at a farther rate.
What Programmers want Spin Programming to Accomplish
What spinning must accomplish in the victim is the idea of feeling good. Victims will think themselves separate from their alters, and must view the
other alters as deserving the pain brought on by spinning. Proper spinning is reinforced and praised by the programmer to establish good feelings. So
not to deflect the training of spinning, contact with the outside world is limited and the victim is usually surrounded by like people or protectors.
The victim is usually surrounded by disciplinary figures and has to follow strict rules.
Victims are taught that there are two ways to deal with the spinning:
1. If they don’t spin, they themselves will experience all the pain, and it won’t be sent to the other alters.
2. If they do spin, they won’t experience any pain at all; as it will be sent to the other alters.
When creating a spin programming system, the programmers keep alters dimly aware of the other alters, so they won’t interfere with each other and
because one person. Within cults, the people usually have different groups of people with certain abilities or jobs. They are taught to hate each
other so they won’t form any kind of resistance.
The Effective Training Method-What It Does to a Person
1. Create multiple personalities. The more personalities the more to send pain to, the less pain and emotion the individual as a whole will feel.
2. Physical spinning is used so when pain enters their lives, they will create that feeling internally, sending the pain to the many different alters.
It’s like an escape mechanism so the person won’t feel.
3. Imagery training is used to build and reinforce connections between internal re-creation of the experience and sending out pain to escape it.
Connections are established between the centrifugal force, velocity, pain intensity, and other feelings.
4. Additionally, special training can be used to convince the spinning alters that they are not related to each other. So, when the victim hurts
someone they love, the other alters don’t feel guilty, because it’s not really them doing the hurting.
One training method includes a contest known as a “Pain Contest.” Two individuals would receive mounting pain until one could not take it anymore.
The one that could not take it is deemed a loser. The persons receiving or the specific alter receiving the pain creates new alters to send the pain
to, to dissociate from it. This is the creation of the multiple personality disorder, also known as the “multiple within a multiple.
Internal Workings of Spin Programming
For spin programming to work correctly, there must be an alter who spins. There should be another alter who will move the dissociated memory so it can
be spun. Informers will tell of alters that are not behaving right. Punishers will punish bad behavior of misbehaving alters. There is the controller
that runs the whole show. All these different personalities (alters) keep the person in check and compliant.
Strengths and Weaknesses of the Program
Spin programming has strengths in that it has been unable to be detected for many years. It is difficult to diagnose; the reactions in therapy can be
non-specific. Hypnosis and visualizations don’t work well in spin training therapy because there are many cues and flashbacks that can activate the
training. Working with the victims is difficult due to them being guarded against outside contact, and their ability to not trust anyone.
Weaknesses are detected with the program because it can be helped with therapeutic intervention. By exploiting the weaknesses in the program, the
therapist can slowly show the patient was has happened to them.
Alters that aren’t affected by the spin program can observe the reactions of self, and make decisions for the benefit of self. The victims are
usually proficient at spinning and therefore are definitely feeling emotions. A therapist can find ways to communicate with these alters, and to open
them up to become aware of emotions and feelings.
Also, the link between external and internal spinning can be broken. Pain can be disassociated with spinning. The illusion that must be shown is that
the alters are different from the rest of the person. Good spinning during spin programming is reinforced by the programmers with praise, so spinning
is something that is looked upon by the victim with pride; something that he/she does well. That is a habit that needs to be broken.
The key in helping a victim of spin programming is providing therapy to each of the alters inside the person, and to all the checks and balances that
control. The therapist can show that the programmer has been using the different alters against one another, and that they can work together to resist
