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!
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.

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.
"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?
As we all know, Joachim was the bloke who would have made a few bucks bringing Anita to Poland for the infamous Breatharian Workshops.
