    Member Of Weider Research Clinic Taught I.F.B.B. Champs A Form Of Witchcraft!

    Printer-Friendly Format

    To help further their muscular gains, Peter C. Siegel, R.H., a member of the Weider Research Clinic, gave more than 25 high-level bodybuilders "how-to" techniques that altered their state of consciousness and put them into a trance!{1} These are the same occult techniques that have been used by witch doctors!

    Joe Weider once told Mike Christian how a guy by the name of Peter Siegel helped other champs train their minds.{2} Mike had heard about Siegel from other bodybuilders before, but none of them went into any details about what Peter Siegel actually did to them.{3}

    Siegel worked with bodybuilders such as Mr. Olympia Samir Bannout, Mr. Olympia Lee Haney, heavyweight Mr. World winner - Pete Grymkowski, Mr. International Andreas Cahling, "The Barbarian Brothers" - David and Peter Paul, Mr. America Tim Belknap, NPC Nationals championship winner - Mike Christian, Mr. USA John DeFendis, and Mr. America Ray Mentzer to name a few.{4}

    In his words, Siegel stated, "through the use of hypnotherapy...I would help them reprogram their minds."{5} To do so, one technique that he used was to leave hypnotic messages on a bodybuilders phone-answering machine. Siegel admits, "It's a very powerful method. When you listen to your phone messages, you are in an altered state of consciousness."{6}

    When asked, "Exactly what is hypnosis?" Judd Biasiotto, PhD responded to the question in Muscle & Fitness magazine, "I don't know, nor does anyone else...The fact that we don't know what hypnosis is really doesn't matter...."{7} Judd was probably trying to avoid the question. If he told the truth and said "witchcraft", how do you think the readers of Muscle & Fitness would have responded?

    Judd admitted in this Muscle and Fitness article that he had devised a technique utilizing hypnosis and symbols.{8} We are told by one researcher that New Agers are taught that symbolic images lift one into an altered state of consciousness.{9}

    Judd also mentions in Muscle & Fitness that drug addicts are better subjects.{10} This is not surprising at all since drug use is one of the ways people seek an altered state of consciousness.{11} Female bodybuilder, Tami Imbriale (1988 Ms. International runner-up) has said that hypnosis serves as her valium.{12}


    E. Fuller Torrey, a research psychiatrist, aligns hypnotic techniques with witchcraft.{13}
    One researcher states, "As recently as two centuries ago hypnotism was the exclusive property of witch doctors..."{14} We can date the use of hypnosis all the way back to Shamans.{15}

    Another researcher tells us "The modern history of hypnosis started in the 18th century with Franz Mesmer.  His theory was called "animal magnetism," or "mesmerism," and his sessions were called "SEANCES"!  Modern scientific studies on hypnotism can be dated back to him."{16}

    Hypnosis cannot be called a science. However, it can be said that for thousands of years, hypnosis has been an important part of the occult.{17} And just because hypnosis is used in medicine does not mean that it is any different than that used by witch doctors.{18}


    A hypnotist leads a person into a hypnotic state through induction.{19} Hypnotic induction consists of a system of verbal and nonverbal manipulation that leads a person into a heightened state of suggestibility, a state of mind where the person will believe almost anything.{20}
    These cassetes were offered for sale in Muscle & Fitness magazine in May of 1982 on page 181.

    When in altered state of consciousness (ASC), a person can become vulnerable to the powers of the occult.{21} As a person is taken into a deeper hypnotic trance, the danger of demonic activity increases.{22} One researcher has mentioned that, "Hypnotic trance and demonic possession certainly have some things in common."{23}

    A cult leader and former hypnotist has stated, ""Once you've been hypnotized, your mind will never be your own again."{24} The mind has been tampered with in discerning the truth and demonic influence may not be clearly evident.{25}

    Hypnotists themselves warn that hypnosis should not be taken lightly.{26} One hypnotist even claims to provide protection exercises in his book so that you will not be harmed.{27}


    Researchers Martin and Deidre Bobgan tell us that, "The hypnotist takes the place of priest or God and holds that place throughout the trance until he either releases the subject or the subject meets a "higher guide" within the trance."{28}

    One hypnotist stated that, "These beings assist you in making your own choices in life. Their approach is always accompanied with feelings of empowerment, confidence, and strength... A sense of greater inner vision and expanded awareness is created by them."{29}

    This reliance on the hypnotist is confirmed by bodybuilder Mike Christian when he stated, "I was going through a difficult emotional period.  Every problem that would come up, I would call Pete. He'd come over, we'd go through a session, and almost automatically, my emotional outlook would change."{30} "The first time Pete hypnotized me it got very emotional.  I felt like telling him, "Forget it, I don't want to talk about it, 'bye!"{31}

    Along with the cassetes, posters and t-shirts were sold with this message. "TAKE IT TO THE  LIMIT...AND BEYOND." Muscle & Fitness, April 1984, page 228.

    In his book Spirit Guide Contact Through Hypnosis, Dr. Bruce Goldberg writes on page 9, "Shamans...had rituals of placing themselves in communication with nonphysical entities."{32} He states "You can more easily identify and recognize them when you're in an altered state of consciousness [ASC] such as hypnosis,"{33} and that "Spirit guides are entities from the "other side"...They come in many forms."{34}

    Dr. Bruce Goldberg went on to say, "The hypnotic state allows us to focus and create a clear channel to receive communication from our spirit guides.  These beings make direct contact with our souls..."{35}


    Muscle & Fitness published an article titled, Dionysian Or Apollonian? The subtitle asked, "Which Type Of Bodybuilder Are You?"{36}

    The article explained that "Dionysus was the Greek god of wine, excess, fantasy, and metamorphosis" and that "Apollo was the Greek god of light, moderation, reason, truth, order, balance, and boundaries."{37}

    The Muscle & Fitness article stated that "These two alternative visions appear across cultures, and, although the names used to identify them vary from culture to culture, their elements are consistent."{38}

    Did you catch that? Alternative "VISIONS"? I looked up the word "vision" in the Random House Webster's college Dictionary. Here is one of the meanings: "Something seen in or as if in a dream or trance..."{39}

    Notice also that the article stated that these two visions may have different names in other cultures and that the two elements are consistent. In Dr. Cathy Burns' book Masonic And Occult Symbols Illustrated, we learn that "Osiris is known by many other names in other countries. In Thrace and Greece he is known as Dionysus, the god of pleasures and of partying and wine...In other places he went by yet other names such as...Nimrod...Zeus...Thor...Apollo...Hercules...and believe it or not Baal!{40}

    Did you catch that? Apollo and Dionysus are the same. They are the same as Baal! Baal is a false god! Remember the first of the Ten Commandments? Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3 (KJV)

    One researcher tells us that "Channeling" is a "New Age" term for spirit-possession,"{41} and that "occultists have found the spirits can imitate virtually anyone or anything with ease."{42}

    Hypnotist, Dr. Bruce Goldberg states, "The ancient Greeks of 1250 B.C. believed that the body of man could be "possessed" by a god so that this being could perform physical acts."{43} In the book The Facts On Spirit Guides we learn that "spirits will also appear in the form most desirable or interesting to the one they are seeking to contact.  For example, the spirits claim to be...various gods of ancient or modern cultures...inhabitants of mythical cultures.{44}
    Muscle & Fitness article that appeared in the July 1991 issue, page 124 & 125. Did they really mean to ask: "WHICH DEMONS ARE YOU POSSESSED WITH?"
       Muscle & Fitness article that appeared in the July 1991 issue, page 124 & 125. Did they really mean to ask: "WHICH DEMONS ARE YOU POSSESSED WITH?"


    The entire history of spiritism is littered with evidence that these beings are demons.{45} Why would Muscle & Fitness ask such a question in the headline of their article about these Gods? Through altered states of consciousness, have high-level bodybuilders sought guidance from the gods of mythology such as Hercules, Apollo, Dionysus, or Thor? 

    The Muscle & Fitness article reveals:

    "Perhaps bodybuilding is in essence a pursuit of a Dionysian vision. Dionysus, a god of metamorphosis, instructed mortals in the miracle of transformation. He also offered instruction in fantasy. The bodybuilder pursues a vision. It is her or his fantasy to undergo dramatic metamorphosis, to evolve from physical ordinariness or a withered condition to a dramatic extraordinariness of physique, a condition of exuberant aliveness and physical abundance. In this incredible metamorphosis the bodybuilder follows the lead of Dionysus. Remember, though, Dionysus not only could usher in a state of merriment and heightened courage, but he could bring men and women to destruction through their drunkenness. So it is with the bodybuilder."{46}

    Gods holy word tell us that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. - I Timothy 4:1 (KJV)

    And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. - Leviticus 20:6 (KJV)
