A NEW-age eco-village, with links to a network of so-called “new paradigm” world changing cults is proposed for Lake Conjola.
Founder of the American-based Fix the World Organisation, Hope Girl (Naima Feagin), will hold a workshop at a property owned by Joe and Vanessa Bragg tonight (Wednesday) where she will outline her plans to help set up a series of “planet changing projects” in Australia.
The One People’s Ascended Living or OPAL facility proposed for the Braggs’ 35-acre property on the banks of Lake Conjola, has been identified as an “enlightened living” project that could be assisted by Hope Girl and her followers who are currently touring the country following an online crowd-funding campaign.
She claims she has "been given the task of healing the world" and that she can "see into the future" and can "see thousands of projects to help millions people".
Tonight’s meeting follows a similar gathering at the property two weeks ago when members of the One People organisation and World Harmony Foundation converged to discuss the Braggs’ OPAL facility – the first of its kind proposed in Australia.
The vision is to create a One People’s demonstration centre focused on sustainable, enlightened living through teaching, demonstrating and facilitating paradigm shifts in agriculture, technology, spirituality and healing.
Purchased by the Braggs three years ago, the former Moriah Resort site currently contains 19 dwellings, including six completed cabins, with potential for developing 71 cabins and campsites on Lake Conjola Entrance Road.
A former bank manager, Mrs Bragg describes herself as a “facilitator of vibrational consciousness and social transformation” who practices holistic counselling, life, spiritual and style coaching and is a minister of metaphysics.
She is a facilitator and trainer with The Wish, an online intuitive energy game that claims to have helped “thousands of people around the world to manifest their greatest wishes for financial freedom, true love, their dream job, life purpose, health and wellbeing, peace and happiness”.
Mrs Bragg runs Milton’s Wisdom Tree women’s group and Rainbow Tree children’s workshops as well as corporate management programs.
Through their involvement with the One Peoples Public Trust - which challenges the world’s banking systems and governments - the Braggs claim to have issued a courtesy notice to their lender, the ANZ Bank, in an effort to erase their mortgage on the multi-million dollar property and make it part of the One People movement.
The couple, who have three young children, are hoping Hope Girl will help their vision become a reality with her promises of paradigm-shifting business plans, spiritual insights and visions into the future.
Her primary source of funding comes via crowd-funding, whereby followers make “charitable” donations online and the sale of Fix the World merchandise at grossly inflated prices.
The Fix the World organisation, World Harmony Foundation, One People and The Wish have been the target of anti-cult campaigners worldwide.
The Braggs also have an 85-acre retreat at Moama near Echuca which is earmarked for the second OPAL facility.
