I have to say, off the bat, I like Jessica Schab. The first time I saw her was on a YouTube video interview with Project Camalot, and whilst young and naive, she clearly had a heart of gold and a natural knowing regarding life and how to live it. I suspect it was for this reason that saw her being picked up by the spiritual community, who couldn’t seem to hear enough of her.
Yet, somehow, this has all changed. I don’t follow her blog, but the story seems to go something like this: Jessica did not enjoy seeing people professing to be spiritual teachers, who couldn’t practice what they preached. She dropped out of the scene and met an Italian guy (did she meet him before dropping out?). This guy seems to have issues all of his own regarding spirituality, whether it be religion or new age, and seeks to denounce them all as bad/wrong/brainwashing, whilst he is the only person who can lead you to the light.
I have no idea how Jessica has fallen for this rather superficial character, who, on listening to an example of one of his ‘coaching’ sessions, is clearly using NLP hypnosis techniques to influence the ‘client’. Did he hypnotize Jessica? I am sure he thought he lucked in nabbing Jessica with her established following, however, I am certain that is now steadily dropping off now, and when he is done with her, I am sure he will seek someone else to serve him and cast Jessica aside.
The wonderful part of this however, is that Jessica will have had some real life experience under her belt that will require all of her spiritual grounding to realise. Once tried and tested with this experience, and perhaps others that come her way, I suspect she will be a powerful voice in the future. So for now, I will continue to keep an eye on her progress, and wish her luck in her life journey.
