Alenara the Breatharian (aka Anita Ikonen)

It was a quiet evening when I received an e-mail from somebody who had stumbled across this website. This person had registered Christmas day, and the next morning it sent me an interesting e-mail. "You may not be aware," it told me, but Anita Ikonen, aka VisionFromFeeling, had a former stage name: Alenara.

That's right, folks. Back in 2002 our very own VFF was touring Poland spreading her nonsense about breatharianism. What's that, you ask? It's the ridiculous notion that humans can survive without eating. I mean, c'mon, who believes this stuff except for the truly deluded and vulnerable?

You can read Anita Ikonen's site about being a breatharian to see for yourself. This goes way beyond claims of seeing inside the human body. She's actually telling people they can survive without eating. Sure ya can - until you die! She has no business telling people this nonsense. It's not a matter of belief but of science. Starvation kills. Period.

It's also interesting that VFF didn't share this story about Alenara. I wonder why? If you look at these videos, you will see Anita Ikonen herself making the same claims that she says prompted her "investigation" into the paranormal. She has believed and preached this stuff for about a decade now. The notion of "apparent accuracy" compelling her to investigate is nonsense. The fact is Anita has been making claims about being an alien with paranormal powers for years. Basically, her entire premise with the IIG has been a lie.

She's a dangerous woman. Advising people that her Vision From Feeling indicated they had heart disease was pretty bad. Contacting a group of migraine sufferers offering to treat them with Vibrational Algebra from her brain was pretty bad. But touring Poland and telling people they can live without food? That's criminal!

Have to add that Anita is currently adopting the self righteous pose of not wanting to discuss her breatharianism so that "people won't try it at home". However, lLast year, on the JREF forum, she revived a five year old thread, apropos of nothing, for the express purpose of sparking interest in her 'experiences' of repeatedly going without food and water for lengthy periods, using prana techniques. When I offered her $10,000 in exchange for proof that she could do this, she sent me a lengthy email detailing her experiences, and bragging that she suffered no ill effects, even after eight or nine days of deprivation.

It's all bollocks, of course, and mind numbingly stupid. Of all her claims, it has the potential to do the most harm if taken at face value. Very scary.

Dispensing "medical advise" has these dangers:

On http://www.newtreatments.org/SCDiet/diary/Ed/120 from 2003:

but I'm also trying to see if it's possible to become a Breatharian.. I found a really nice site on this topic. It's made by a woman from Sweden and she has studied the topic quite well.. The part on chakra's is very interesting .. Check her site here: www.angelfire.com/stars3/breathe_light/breatharianism.html

Gullible people pick it up and believe this rubbish.

What happened to her book: http://www.angelfire.com/stars3/breathe_light/book.html?

"I am still in the process of writing a book on breatharianism. I have only still a few more things to add and to make the final edit. The book will most likely be published in Summer this year, I have still a few more practical details to sort out."

Does anyone know?

I don't think Anita was ever really and truly doing a book herself, Joachim Werdin published one, I can't be bothered looking up the title of it at the moment (it is in Polish), anyways Anita got credit for the cover artwork.
As we all know, Joachim was the bloke who would have made a few bucks bringing Anita to Poland for the infamous Breatharian Workshops.

I am neither delusional nor vulnerable. I stand for things alone even the entire world does NOT believe it. I stand by her claim 100%. YOu can't understand it because you are EQUIPPED to. Until you reach a certain level of development you won't understand and won't be able to reach that state of being. IT came natural for FEW. The key is total understanding of the SELF (not EGO but true self) and total acceptance of it. ARE you there yet?
