James Ray – The Prison Want AdsMay 21, 2013
James Arthur Ray, motivational speaker and star of The Secret, was found guilty of negligent homicide and sentenced to two years jail, after he cooked three people to death in a bogus sweatlodge in 2009. He is due for release on July 12 this year.
I have been wondering what James Ray will do upon his release. I’ve been expecting a slippery, slithery return to business, aimed at new customers and avoiding mention of what he’s been up to lately. Also, there are those who have clung onto him so far, hoping to grab a bargain business deal from a fallen dictator. They will be flooding the atmosphere with good vibes about Ray, and promoting exploitive “business opportunities” to the most vulnerable end of the market they can find.
That’s all still to come. But first up, the parole board requires Ray to remain in Arizona for 110 days after his release. That might pose some logistic difficulties for him I guess, but James Arthur Ray, author of Harmonic Wealth: The Secret of Attracting the Life You Want is an expert in using quantum physics and the Law of Attraction to get everything — yes everything — he wants… and you can too.
Actually things don’t seem to be going so Harmonically well for Death Ray. He doesn’t know where he’s going to stay in Arizona for that time and has been reduced to getting his brother, Jon C Ray, to beg to other people for money, support and a couch to sleep on. An email which Jon Ray sent out privately has fallen into the hands of the activist blogger and kick ass fake robot the Salty Droid, who kindly featured it on his website:
I am hesitant to send this e-mail; however I just got off of the phone with James and time is becoming critical…
As I am sure all of you assume… this unfortunate situation has left James financially destitute.
Poor Death Ray. He spent $5 million on top shelf attorneys, and now he’s destitute.
The alternative to us NOT being able to find him lodging, would be that he would have to stay in a “group home” (or halfway house) with other recently released prisoners.
Destitute and considering a stint in a halfway house. So that’s what Harmonic Wealth looks like these days.
Ray appeared in The Secret with a giant blue genie that he claimed promises to grant the audience “unlimited wishes– not just three! Yes, ha ha, think on that one!” Ray, you see, as he told countless fawning and credulous TV presenters after Oprah catapulted him to fame, knows how to get wealth in every area of his life.

It is indeed a truly somber and sobering realization that even high powered motivational speakers, who have the strongest force in the universe and the whole of quantum physics at their fingertips, sometimes meet challenges that are simply beyond their means…. Like having to stay in Arizona for three and a half months.
Speaking personally, I also find this situation most regrettable. I would have preferred to see James Ray staying in jail for the decade or two (or three) that he fully deserved and could easily have gotten with a different judge. Instead he’s getting out in less than two years. He should count himself extremely lucky.
And while where on the topic of “unfortunate” circumstances, it should also be noted that many of Ray’s former students were financially ruined by him. Some of them then had to put up with Ray’s attorneys trying to ridicule and humiliate them in court — the same attorneys that Ray bought with their money.
But still, James Ray feels hard done by and is pleading for pity.
Ray’s brother continues:
….I have simply exhausted my and James’ resources (me being 1200 miles away) and now am counting on the universe to guide someone to the right resource to help us in this desperate situation.
Desperate, Jon C Ray? Desperate?
His worse case scenario is spending a couple of months in a halfway house full of ex-prisoners. Given that at the moment he’s living in a jail, with current prisoners, that has to be seen as an improvement, doesn’t it?
Desperate would have been if they kicked him out on the street. He would have been homeless and destitute. Does that ring any bells, Jon Ray?

Do you remember, Jon Ray, how you were sitting on a chartered bus at your brother’s Creating Absolute Wealth event in 2009, with a participant called Colleen Conaway?
She was on her way to do a “homelessness” exercise, and you were there as a staff member to help supervise and make sure nothing went wrong. Remember how you didn’t bother waiting for her to get back on the bus afterwards because she was dead? Remember how James Ray and some of the staff colluded to conceal her death not only from the police, but from other participants and even other staff members?
Your brother could have said to himself at that point “Oh my God, I’m dangerous. I’d better stop risking people’s lives or next time I might not be able to cover it up.” But he didn’t stop and soon he found himself trying to cover up three more deaths at his next event in Arizona.
Note to potential James Ray customers
Although we know much about the four deaths caused by James Arthur Ray, the vast majority of his victims have been financially ruined rather than killed. Future customers need to be warned that although it’s now perhaps less likely that Ray will cook you to death, he is still just as ruthless, reckless, brutal and stupid as the court documents showed him to be. And now he’s desperate, and feels that the universe entitles him to your money. He needs his steroids and is human growth hormones and his stimulants and his hair loss treatment and his herpes meds. And you risk financial ruin if he manages to pull you into the expanding quagmire of his life.
