reader comments: channeling and JZ Knight/Ramtha
17 Nov 2009
I haven't thought of Judy Hampton, 1964 graduate of Artesia HS (NM), in years. I was telling a co-worker about her and we thought we'd Google her. Judy was a so-so friend. I always enjoyed her company, although my folks didn't really approve. She was fun and quite the drama queen. If you ask some of her real good friends, they can tell you how she would speak in tongues (at church revivals), play the Ouija board really well, sleep talk when her hand was in water, etc.
Believe in this Ramtha? No way. She just found her calling and, as you said, misfits that are lost. I feel for them. Specially those that lost family, finances, and more following her.
Thanks for the info.
Here is a similar story.
From pages 53 & 54:
J.Z. Knight grew up as Judy Hampton in Artesia, New Mexico. Her alcoholic father deserted the family, and she was raised by her fundamentalist Christian mother. Popular as a teenager, J.Z. was voted the prettiest girl in her high school class. A devout believer in God, J.Z. once suddenly began speaking in a strange male voice during a prayer meeting, according to one of Knight's former high school classmates, Sandy Fallis. The voice identified himself as a demon named Demias, said Fallis on a segment of ABC's 20/20.
"She was holding her neck and saying, 'I can't breathe!' At that point the male voice broke out again and said, 'You want this body and you can't have it!' (Knight says the incident never happened.)

If you watch the 20/20 piece carefully, JZ's eyes go down to the floor when she denies the Demias event. Her body language is not congruent or straightforward with the statement to me.
