Satanic ritual abuse, what is it?

For many decades, in the Western world from Australia to Europe, from the US to Canada, people have repeatedly recounted horrifyingly sadistic torture, mostly sexual in nature, by groups of people. The perpetrators often include family members from several generations. They also tell of dark gatherings, often at night, where [...]

Satanic ritual abuse, how common is it?

Since I have been speaking out publicly about satanic ritual abuse in the Netherlands, I am regularly approached by survivors as well as informal carers and fellow counsellors. They tell of adults - as well as children - who testify to things that in many ways resemble the satanic ritual abuse I hear about from my clients. The testimonies that [...]

Satanic ritual abuse: How can this remain hidden in a country like the Netherlands?

NB. For proper understanding, please first read the article 'About DIS and purposefully created DIS' I often hear the question of how it is still possible that satanic ritual abuse remains hidden in a western democracy like the Netherlands.

The world of survivors was totally unknown to me. I have great respect for their courage and perseverance when I hear about their bizarre experiences. How vulnerable and special that they want to share this with me personally! I really appreciate that we can open our home for encounters.

Being there unconditionally is the key

I have been touched in my heart by the injustice done to so many; I want to stand for the truth and for God's justice to prevail.

Survivors of SRM need what every human being needs: sincere love, a heart that listens without judgement and lasting connection. Even the deepest parts, those who had to murder and rape, then dare to speak. How many victims will break free from their lifelong slavery if they receive 10 such friends?

It is a privilege to pray for survivors, regularly and at key moments. And also for their families, if they are still in the cult. That is my contribution to their liberation and I experience that in this way I can help God's light to shine on their lives. As a Christian, I thus take my place in God's Kingdom and in the heavenly realms.

What a new, dark world opened up for me in 2020. Too bizarre to be true, until I started to listen and read critically and openly. I now find it a privilege to support therapists and survivors, so that the Light of Jesus overcomes the deep darkness.

I give my hands to help and my heart to love.

It is a privilege to experience a survivor. But it is an even greater privilege to be able to do your modest part to support the survivor to really live.

No one can do it all alone.... That is why I want to mean something for others. My name Tikva means HOPE ... and there is hope for everyone!
