The Disney Princess Movies and their Impact on the Human Family Addendum

 

ISleepingBeautySavedByPrince recently published a document about the Disney Princess movies and their impact on the human family through a process called “Archetypal Transference”, which is defined as the unconscious projection of archetypes that exist in the collective unconscious, due to repetition. I talked about how these movies become a form of programming, causing a little girl to subconsciously identify with the princess role, and unconsciously project the roles of other characters onto prominent people in her life. I mention how these movies, and the reinforcement of their programming via countless princess products on the market, seem to have the effect of causing females to be “high-maintenance”, and drive a wedge between mothers and daughters on a subconscious level. I also mention how sexual subliminals serve to inhibit spiritual growth by focusing the subconscious mind on baser desires in general.

What I neglected to discuss in the original document (https://musicis2words.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/archetypaltransferencedisneyprincessmovies) is a concept known as “learned helplessness”. This form of learned helplessness differs from the more commonly known definition of the term, which describes an animal or person who experiences this effect when they are exposed to repetitive abuse and trauma, with no escape (see below). The form of learned helplessness I am referring to comes as a result of being programmed by movies that feature the male “hero”, and the female “damsel in distress”. By and large, the majority of princess films and action movies reinforce these archetypes, and encourage females to subconsciously play the role of victim who will ultimately be rescued, which sets them up to be victimized for real, as they become adults, only, in many cases, that rescue never comes.

A key point here is that a female, who has been programmed in this way, winds up with a victim mentality & tends to identify herself in relation to her mate. This allows for very limited personal, emotional, intellectual, or spiritual development, which may result in an inability to become a whole person in her own right, depending on how extensive her programming is.

As I mentioned in my earlier document, the effects of this programming may vary, depending on the amount of trauma in a person’s life, due to the effects of trauma on the brain.

Not only are little girls programmed by these so-called feminine archetypes, but boys are usually programmed to be completely different, so men and women end up having personalities which seem to conflict. This programming seems to begin at birth, when boys are assigned blue and girls are assigned pink. On the color wheel, pink and blue are neither side-by-side, nor are they compliments. So on a symbolic level, males and females are immediately programmed to conflict with each other. I cover this in more detail in another article.

There does seem to be an agenda out there to disempower women on a subconscious level. While there are some movies out there that show strong female characters, the majority of fantasy and action movies especially, feature a strong male who must rescue a helpless, or at least less capable, female. Another type of programming in these movies can be seen in how the male role has growth and character development that is not found, or is negligible, in the female role.

Being exposed to these archetypes, over and over again, certainly becomes a form of subconscious programming.

Again I find myself wanting to understand why this is happening on such a large scale.

Well, I have heard one author say that we are dealing with “man’s ancestral hatred of women”. The subjugation of women would certainly be explained by this idea. We must ask ourselves: has it served society, humanity, and our planet for this particular theatrical theme to be repeated ad-nauseum? I think not. In fact, one thorough look at the state of our world shows how no one seems to be completely satisfied with our current reality. In fact, even the wealthy seem to be trapped in a state of subconscious and insatiable need. One need only to look at the various forms of addiction that exist in our world to see this is the case. The proliferation of war, poverty, and disease shows us that the current locus of societal control is not where it should be. The number of people who have so-called mental illnesses is staggering these days. Could this be a byproduct of the imbalance perpetuated by this programming? Perhaps if a more natural order was allowed to develop in human society, then we might see a better world, whereby everyone can be satisfied and live in harmony with one another. Instead, most of us are being programmed by these stereotypes and archetypes that seem to have become the hallmark of an unnatural system, bent on usurping the power of others, both male and female.

Programming allows for no individual development, forces people into predefined roles, and removes a measure of freewill. It also makes people more predictable and therefore easier to control. However, since it is done on such a subconscious level, most people do not recognize it and think that they are behaving in ways that are natural to them.

So is there any way out of this outdated rut of a program that we all seem to be adhering to, on some level or another? Well, one way would be if everyone stopped watching and exposing their children to these movies that reinforce these stereotypical roles onto people, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Therefore, the only way out would be to rise above this sort of programming. However, I have noticed that when I tried to rise above this programming, it seemed to kick in even stronger, and I felt a serious backlash from males.

There’s one more thing I want to throw out there, considering my recent research. I have been examining a certain acronym, about which there seems to be some debate regarding what the letters stand for. After hearing of how Hitler supposedly had a mickey mouse figurine on his desk, and after recognizing the existence of something called “Project Paperclip”, I have to wonder now if the MK in “MK Ultra” actually represents the words “Magic Kingdom”. I say this because there is a huge conglomerate monster involved in manufacturing Disney-based products, and perpetuating the programming therein, and there does seem to be a form of magic being used on people through these movies, and through programming in general, which not only divides women from men, but also has a tendency to make women into adversaries of each other, ala Cinderella’s stepsisters (for one example). The concept of “divide and conquer” keeps coming up when I look at the control of the human race through programming, in all its forms. By the way, does it strike anyone as odd that there is a Disney Land in California and a Disney World in Florida?

With regard to what I have read about the illuminati being formed in 1776: I feel that is complete disinfo. I say this because it seems like there has always been some elite group of people controlling the majority of the populations of this world. Even when there have been good men trying to bring people out of slavery and oppression, they seem to either get coopted or killed. I hope that this state of affairs doesn’t last. It is not a healthy system, and leaves most people disturbed on a subconscious level, leading them to have some emotional issue of one form or another, often causing some form of addiction, i.e. overeating, drugs, gambling, etc. as a way of coping with an unseen form of slavery which no one is allowed to notice, much less talk about.

It seems to me that we are indeed living in a world where an unseen form of slavery exists- just ask any TI who has experienced “intellectual property theft” or the “Truman Show effect”. Also, after considering the mass programming of female children, as mentioned above, it is not surprising to find the statistic out there stating that 75% of TIs are female who possess advanced educations and/or high IQs. This fact tells me that the power and abilities of this group are being usurped by a system that wants no challenges to its programming and authority, and would apparently like the majority of women living in the world to have low IQs and less education. Seeing the potentiality of this section of the population, in advance would behoove that system to preprogram these women into a victim mentality.

After reading my documents, and/or watching my videos, one might have the opinion that I am a feminist. I’m really not that. I don’t know what I am. What I do know is that the system in which most of us are living is unnatural and causes more problems than it solves. The fact that, in most cultures, women are subjugated and their opinions are often discounted by men and women alike, tells me that the way females & males are programmed could be a big part of the problems that are manifesting in our world today. If women were allowed to retain their natural strengths and abilities (meaning: if women weren’t programmed to be somewhat helpless and at odds with other women including their own mothers), would the world be a better place? Perhaps there would be fewer incidents of women trapping men by getting pregnant. Maybe there would be less “cattiness” exhibited between women. The only way to find out would be to try. Generally speaking, men have been in charge of the ruling organizations of this world for too long and the results have been favorable to the ruling class, and detrimental to the majority of the population, but I suspect that, on a spiritual level, it hasn’t really served either group.

About Learned Helplessness:

From http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/1380861/learned-helplessness

“learned helplessness, in psychology, a mental state in which an organism forced to bear aversive stimuli, or stimuli that are painful or otherwise unpleasant, becomes unable or unwilling to avoid subsequent encounters with those stimuli, even if they are “escapable,” presumably because it has learned that it cannot control the situation.

The theory of learned helplessness was conceptualized and developed by American psychologist Martin E.P. Seligman at the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1960s and ’70s. While conducting experimental research on classical conditioning, Seligman inadvertently discovered that dogs that had received unavoidable electric shocks failed to take action in subsequent situations—even those in which escape or avoidance was in fact possible—whereas dogs that had not received the unavoidable shocks immediately took action in subsequent situations. The experiment was replicated with human subjects (using loud noise as opposed to electric shocks), yielding similar results. Seligman coined the term learned helplessness to describe the expectation that outcomes are uncontrollable.

Learned helplessness has since become a basic principle of behavioral theory, demonstrating that prior learning can result in a drastic change in behaviour and seeking to explain why individuals may accept and remain passive in negative situations despite their clear ability to change them. In his book Helplessness (1975), Seligman argued that, as a result of these negative expectations, other consequences may accompany the inability or unwillingness to act, including low self-esteem, chronic failure, sadness, and physical illness. The theory of learned helplessness also has been applied to many conditions and behaviours, including clinical depression, aging, domestic violence, poverty, discrimination, parenting, academic achievement, drug abuse, and alcoholism.”

The Disney Princess Movies and their Impact on the Human Family through Archetypal Transference

SleepingBeautyEvilQueenMaleficentThe Disney Princess Movies and their Impact on the Human Family through Archetypal Transference

Psychiatrist Carl Gustave Jung described the archetypes as models of people, behaviors, or personalities that exist in the collective unconscious. Transference is the projection of unconscious contents.

It is often said that a child’s mind is like a sponge.

It is my argument that these movies program females into the embodying the negative female stereotypes, such as: being catty, high maintenance princess-types who generally dislike or distrust their mothers. This is all subconscious, of course, & most females will not admit to this being an issue.

As you can see, these stories have been around much longer than the Disney films in some form or another. This is how I feel many of these roles became archetypes in the first place. However, Disney in particular, seemed to have some interest in making the adult female role the antihero. Here are some of the Disney Princess movies that contain the archetypes of “princess”, “hero/prince”, and “evil queen”, and where they came from (skip past these, if you are already familiar with the background info):

Rapunzel, a tale with similarities to a Persian tale from the 10th century AD called “Rudaba”, was published by the Brothers Grimm in 1812, which then became the basis for the Disney movie “Tangled”.
The Little Mermaid, published in 1837 by Hans Christian Anderson, became the Disney animated film of the same name in 1989.
Sleeping Beauty, taken from an original story called, “The Beauty sleeping in the wood”, by Charles Perrault, published in 1697, was made into the Disney animated film, 1959.
Snow White, taken from an original story by the Brothers Grimm, in 1812, but completed in 1857, was made into the animated Disney film in 1937.
Cinderella, taken from an original story by Charles Perrault, published in 1697, was later published by the Brothers Grimm in 1812, and made into a Disney animated film in 1950. However, there are earlier versions of this theme, in fables complete with slipper motif, going as far back as the 1st century BCE.

The Set Up:

Cinderella was originally a story about unjust oppression with a reward at the end, and is possibly derived from an original Greek tale called Rhodopis, which contains no evil queen or wicked stepmother. The first version I could find with a wicked stepmother in it is a Chinese tale from 860 AD, called Ye Xian (Yeh Shen). The Disney movie Cinderella has the female antihero in its version, as does Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, and Tangled (taken from Rapunzel). It is my opinion that these particular Disney movies actually serve to disempower women in general, although some of them do show assertive princesses. The repetition of the theme of the oppressed princess (daughter role), trapped by some rendition of the evil queen (mother role), but who ultimately gets rescued by a dashing prince (hero/lover role) does a gross disservice to women in general. By creating a set of unnatural archetypes based on roles from these stories, these roles subconsciously become projected onto people by the little girl (or adult woman who grew up with these stories).

Today’s little girl is more prone to the programming behind these movies, since they are inundated with the movies, DVDs, books, video PrincessCanopyBedgames, baby dolls, Barbie dolls, coloring books, figurines, room décor, outfits, etc., which all serve to reinforce the “princess” role in the child’s mind, before she has any defenses against such programming. By being exposed to these movies, over and over again (because of the advent of DVDs), and at such a young age (sometimes from birth), this programming is even harder to resist. It is often said that a child’s mind is like a sponge. Since the programming comes through on a subconscious level, the child’s open mind has no filtering mechanism to avoid being programmed. I would be remiss if I didn’t note that the extent to which a child is programmed by these stories may be directly related to the amount of trauma she has received in early childhood.

By making almost eBabyAndMotherMonkeyvery prominent adult female the villain, Disney is effectively subverting a natural bond between mother and daughter by destroying a level of trust between them. In the animal kingdom, baby animals instinctively trust their mother, because the mother usually has an instinct to protect her young. Humans have these instincts as well, but they are subverted by programming inherent in these movies, among other things. By subconsciously identifying with the oppressed princess, the human daughter is subconsciously projecting the role of evil queen onto her mother (or other prominent female caregiver) who then becomes the antihero to the princess. In this way, the mother has become the enemy in her daughter’s eyes, albeit on a subconscious level. It is simple psychology.

Anecdotal Evidence:

I have witnessed this effect in my life, my adoptive mother’s life, and in my daughter’s life. Looking back, I know I projected the evil queen SleepingBeautySavedByPrincerole onto my mother, but did she subconsciously accept that role to a degree? In my mother’s case, she was indeed “rescued” from her family by her so-called “prince”, but it eventually didn’t work out, and they got a divorce, probably because of unrealistic expectations programmed into my mother’s psyche (a Greek word for “spirit”). I have to wonder if the woman who unknowingly identifies with the princess role as a child, subconsciously accepts the evil queen role when she enters motherhood, simply because it is the most prominent adult female archetype in movies that programmed her as a child. Could that be part of what happened to my mother (in addition to other forms of archetypal transference), and why I was verbally abused and neglected when I was growing up? My mother was also a narcissist, as are the evil queens/wicked stepmothers in the Disney princess movies, and I spent half of my childhood in a literal “house of mirrors”. Could that have come from the programming from these films? In my daughter’s case, I can see how she has internalized these archetypes, because she certainly acts like a little princess and often treats me as if I were the evil queen. I, however, refuse to accept that role. I love my child and have the natural instinct to protect my child. I projected the Huntsman role from Snow White onto my father, and as such, I put him up on a pedestal, even though he was rarely present in my childhood.

I now have to wonder if the programming from these princess movies is the root cause of why little girls seem to fight their mothers about things that are good for them, such as the way my daughter fights me when I tell her to brush her teeth, eat better foods, do her homework, take a bath, etc. While of course children want to play rather than do homework, would they be more LisaHomerPiPieapt to follow parents’ instructions if they weren’t watching movies and TV shows that make the parents look either like an enemy or unintelligent? In the case of little girls, these princess movies are the biggest suspect, but in the case of little boys, you can simply take a look at television shows such as The Simpsons, which paint the father in a negative light, and make the children out to be smarter than their parents. If you are programmed by these shows to think that you are smarter than your parents, are you going to trust their advice?

Why?

I have been asked why someone would want to do this. There are a few reasons that I can think of:

TangledSexSubliminalFirst, you have to follow the money. It is a multimillion (if not billion) dollar industry, aimed at little girls. Princesses are royalty. What do we know about royalty? They have a whole lot of money and stuff. If you can get those children to identify with the princess role, then you can trigger this programming in media, which can then open them up to new programming in your movies, music, television, and advertisements, thereby making them into good little consumers who will buy, or get their parents to buy, anything you make them want. This is done simultaneously with the sexual subliminal messages found in many Disney films, if not all of them, which then brings the child’s subconscious mind to focus on sex (and on baser desires in general), programming which will be played out later, as the child reaches puberty. While the adage “sex sells” is often used in advertising, that is only one reason for sexual subliminals. By focusing children’s subconscious mind on sex, after already setting up the atmosphere of mistrust between parents and children, they will further stray from their parents’ advice, and it will be harder for them to focus on learning, spirituality, or finding a career.

The little girl who subconsciously identified with the “oppressed princess” role will project the “hero/prince” role onto any boyfriends she has as she gets older. However, these males were not programmed by these movies, and thus don’t fit that role very well. In fact, any boyfriend or husband to the female, who subconsciously identified with the princess role, will most likely grow to resent this woman and complain that she is too “high maintenance”. Well, duh, she’s been programmed to be that way! This sets a girl up for a big disappointment that occurs in the unconscious mind when she subconsciously recognizes that her mate can never fulfill the role of “hero/prince”. This will cause a form of cognitive dissonance that the grown woman will not be able to identify, and thus, she will not be able to address or resolve the issue at heart, if she seeks psychological help. The end result of all of this unrealistic programming is depression, among other mental health issues.

If you can get children to mistrust their parents (especially on a subconscious level they cannot recognize), this makes it easier to program them using the media. By the way, this subconscious programming of little children to mistrust their parents is reinforced when they realize the parents have been lying to them about Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth fairy. Again, this happens on a subconscious level, which makes it all the more insidious and difficult to correct, once the damage has been done. It is easier to program a person who lacks foundational values. This is accomplished as a result of the child being somewhat cut-off from a parent’s protective instinct due to the subconscious lack of trust caused by these movies, as well as certain TV shows. How does one deprogram a child that has had the princess programming reinforced throughout their childhood via the umpteen million Disney princess products on the market (mentioned above)? If a parent tries to raise awareness about the issue to the child, the child is not going to admit that they identify with the Disney princess, or Bart or Lisa Simpson for that matter, because it is not in the conscious mind. The fact that it is done on a subconscious level is what makes it work so well. People quickly deny it is real precisely because they are unconscious of it.

With these programs in the subconscious mind, triggers can be used to bring this programming to bear in multiple ways. Take the shopping addict for example. Could that be a subconscious reaction to princess programming? How about addiction in general? What about hoarding? Overeating or eating disorders? I already mentioned depression. These mental health issues support an industry already in place: Psychiatric medicine, i.e. pharmaceutical drugs. I feel that many disorders that people suffer are caused by programming, to keep a whole industry running, thereby making a small portion of the population very wealthy from other people’s suffering, without actually curing anything. The only real way to cure some of these issues, in my opinion, is with deprogramming. Most psychiatrists and psychologists out there barely even admit programming exists, much less want to cure it. One begins to see a vicious cycle going on with all of this.

Is it any wonder that Hitler is said to have had a Mickey Mouse figurine on his desk?PriestWithErection

So, if you are a mother with a young daughter, and if you decide to expose your little girl to these movies, I ask you to offer parental guidance with these princess movies. I feel that any movie showing a priest getting an erection during a wedding should not be rated G. I don’t buy the story that it is actually the priest’s knees because the erection scene is one lump, not two. Once that initial subconscious separation between mother and daughter is made, then the little girl is directed to follow her over-sexualized Disney role models, such as Brittny Spears & Miley Cyrus.

Of course, the extent to which all mind control works on the psyche is dependent on variables in the individual subject’s life, like how much early childhood trauma they might have had, or whether their parents made any effort to instill values into them, for two examples.
