Vivaxis Research Paper

Replied by Stas Bekman on Sunday, September 13 2015, 11:56 ·Hide·#10

I also found a discussion on vivaxis on creative energies yahoo group (quoting the useful parts below):

Aileen W. Donovan:

I wonder if someone can help me with this Vivaxis question.

In Donna Eden's book, 'Energy Medicine' on page 312, she states when testing the Vivaxis, that she has 'never seen a person be weak in more than one direction unless the weakness was in every direction'. (Sometimes a little weakness is seen in the opposite direction of your vivaxis vulnerability)

My question is, how can someone be 'out' in 3 or 4 directions then?

I know when I had my Vivaxis fixed for me at Donna Eden's 5 day intensive in San Diego this past Feb. I was 'out' in several places....I also remember watching one of Dr. John M. LaTourette's DVD's where he fixes his wife's Vivaxis and it is 'out' in at least 3 places...I tested my Mom's and it tested weak in 2 (NOT opposite to each other) directions...

I hadn't thought much about it until recently when I tested my hubby's Vivaxis and he was out in '3' places...and he asked me, 'If the weakness/vulnerability of the Vivaxis comes about as 'being born in that direction' HOW can you possibly be 'out' in more than one direction? After all, Mother's usually just face the one direction while giving birth, they are not spinning around like that kid's head from the Exorcist movie??

I honestly had to stand there and look 'stupid' because I couldn't answer him...Luckily, he's my hubby, and has seen me look stupid before, so it wasn't too much of a shock to him ;-))

Can anyone help me with an answer?


When I test people for vivaxis I use a compass, so "they know" what  direction to spin the magnet in, thier weakness and what direction  to face doing exercises... unless a new weakness is developed. The  direction they were weak in before the fix. I have never had a test  weak in more than one direction.

Spinning a magnet "all around" the body in the Aura 1 - 3 inches out  from the body for a couple of weeks (to hold new pattern in) if the  vivaxis fix and soda baths don't hold. Donna demonstrates this in  the Energy Tracker Videos, a void bewteen the body and the aura that  energy collects in. Something she experienced... something in the  enviroment.

Donna did the correction above when touching the body with her  finger did not reconnect the aura to the body... Would the test for having one's aura connected to the body be an  aura test inches off the body, or just touch the body and test? I  would apperciate knowing how to test for this.  The test was not spoken about when demonstrated in the video.

Donna metioned about going through an airport or court house...  magnetic scan, consider an MRI.

Two lady's who had eye surgry as children unknown to me before  sealing thier vivaxis... One jumped in a sudden shooting flash of  pain opening the area back up, and with the other I saw what looked  like scar tissue come out, while spinning the magnet both from the  area of the G.B. point on the eye that they had surgery on.

Aileen W. Donovan:

I don't worry about the "why".

#I am reminded of a brilliant teacher I use to train with...He was like a 'pit bull' when it came to 'points of reference' and 'verification processes'. He trained all of us in his classroom to be able to stand in our 'circle of excellence' and answer all the 'why's' that came up in reference to the stuff he taught...In fact, before we would leave the classroom for the day, and many times before we could even leave for lunch, he'd make each person in the class stand up and tell the class 'one thing' they had learnt & that stood out for them the most so far in class. Then he would elaborate on the theory brought up, just to ensure that we all really 'got it'.... He *never* would have been satisfied with NOT knowing the 'why', and after training with him for almost a year, I find myself unable to just let something 'slide' without explanation when a technique doesn't work either. Not only in relation to being able to explain it to a client who has the where with all to ask questions, but mostly for myself, to ensure that I am doing the technique correctly and to the best of my ability....

I just fix it with a magnet.

#In lieu of a magnet, I believe a crystal can also be used?...

Verify the "fix".

And then have them do the baking soda.

If I see them later, I recheck. All have stated "fixed".

I remember at one of Donna's seminars, she had one of her original trainer's (Shantee) working on her during the break...

...and her own vivaxis was being fixed!

I asked her about it, and she just shook her head and said, "it happens".

You may have been contacted by what seems to be Pinecone Research, to participate in a mystery shopping assignment or to take online surveys worth a lot of money. You may also have been mailed a fake check in what has been dubbed, Pinecone Research check fraud. If these apply to you, be careful - scammers posing as Pinecone Research have been running a serious scam where many victims have lost a lot of money to these thieves.

February, 2018 update - fake Pinecone Research emails for Walmart assignments supposedly paying $500 a piece are circulating across the USA.

February, 2015 update - fake Pinecone Research secret shopper e-mails are circulating. Reply, and you'll receive a letter with a fake check for a very large sum of money.

October, 2014 update - fake e-mails promising $300 per project study are being mass mailed to people across the USA.

June, 2014 update - scammers targeting USA residents are sending out e-mails again asking that $1550 be wired to a Western Union account.

May, 2014 update - scammers targeting USA residents have once again been sending out e-mails using Pinecone Research's name. Checks in the amount of $1900 are being promised, with $1550 to be wired to a Western Union account.

February, 2014 update - scammers pretending to be Pinecone Research have been sending out e-mails to USA residents asking them to participate in an evaluation survey on Western Union outlet services.

October, 2013 update - scammers pretending to be Pinecone Research tend to be referencing mystery shopping assignments, or "business surveys" worth $150 a piece in the e-mails and letters they have been sending.

If you've received a very large check from Pinecone Research

As per our article, I Received a Big Check From a Survey Company. Is it Real?, if you've received an unexpected check in the mail from Pinecone Research (most typically for a sum of more than $1000), it is almost certainly fake. In fact, anytime you receive an unexpected check in the mail, you should question its authenticity. Big companies don't just issue checks for fun, so before you get too excited and try to cash it, know that you could be putting your own money at risk by doing so.

Don't get caught paying an NSF fee!
Did you know that even if you don't wire money to anyone, but still deposit the check, you could be faced with a fee from your bank for depositing a NSF (non sufficient funds) check! Not only will the check bounce, but you could face fees of anywhere from $10-$35!

This might seem obvious, but if you're asked to send money, the check is fake. No matter how great the hologram on the check, no matter if your bank actually accepts the check to be deposited - the check WILL BOUNCE. Meanwhile, if you were instructed to wire money to Western Union or MoneyGram, and you actually do so, you will never see this money again. These types of accounts are extremely difficult to trace and wired money is almost never recoverable.

Fact: Pinecone Research WILL NEVER ask you to send them money.

In fact, Pinecone Research has a security notice about this issue posted on their website here: https://www.pineconeresearch.com/Important%20Security%20Notice.htm

But there's a phone number listed on the letter included with the check!

Even if an actual person picks up on the other line, rest assured they do not work for Pinecone Research! Serious scammers will go to great lengths to convince their victims that they are genuine. If you get an actual person on the line, quickly alert your local authorities. Part of the problem in prosecuting these types of scammers is that they are somewhat fly-by-night operations. The phone number may only work for a few days, so the more information and leads law officials have to go on, the better the chances of catching these criminals in the act. The real Pinecone Research does not talk to its survey takers over the phone, and are actually owned by a company called Nielsen.

Why was I contacted? Did the real Pinecone sell my personal information to these scammers?

They didn't, and it's a coincidence that you've been contacted by these fraudsters. Pinecone Research has hundreds of thousands of members, so it's almost guaranteed that some of the people contacted will be actual members of the Pinecone Research survey panel. You were probably contacted by chance, as your mailing address may have been sold as part of a list. If you've ever received junk mail in your name, it's likely that your address is in a database that has been sold. The good news is although annoying, junk mail can simply be recycled without so much as a glance at it.

I've heard talk of a class action lawsuit against Pinecone Research. Thoughts?

A class action lawsuit by people who have fallen victim to this scam and have wired money, would likely be thrown out of court. Nielsen, who operates Pinecone, is in no way involved with orchestrating this scam, so the lawsuit would be completely misdirected. If the scammers are ever caught, a lawsuit could potentially happen then, as the scammers would be named as the defendant.

If you've been contacted by Pinecone Research by e-mail and suspect something fishy

On the security notice posted on their website, Pinecone stresses that all correspondence coming from them will originate from the e-mail address: [email protected] Although it's smart to note a sender's address, be aware that it's easy enough to make an e-mail appear from a particular sender, even when it's not.

Look a little closer by doing the following:

Step 1: Look at the "reply" address in the e-mail. It might be something sneaky like: [email protected] Did you notice the "a" missing in "pineconeresearch"? Scammers can be pretty crafty and will register domains that are very similar to the real thing, and will set up e-mail accounts using the same or similar alias to the real thing. If you a difference of just one letter, you'll know it's fake.

Note that even if the "reply" address is correct, it does not mean that the e-mail is legitimate!

Step 2: Hover your cursor over any link the e-mail. What does it say? If it doesn't have pineconeresearch.com anywhere in the url, you'll know pretty quickly that it's a fake.

Here's an actual example of a fake e-mail supposedly from Pinecone Research. This one includes instructions on sending money via MoneyGram. (Click to enlarge the image).

Notice how even SurveyPolice's logo has been used in the email above! In a desperate attempt to gain the reader's trust, these scammers have included our "approved survey panel" seal in the e-mail. Talk about distasteful.

Here's an another fake email. This one offers a $150 "Evaluation Survey".

Another fake email. This time, $150 for a Western Union & MoneyGram Evaluation survey!

(Thanks Nya for forwarding these e-mails!)

Another fake email, added February 24, 2014. This one asks for $1550 be wired via Western Union. Notice that the e-mail address is close but not an exact match to the real "[email protected]"

Another fake email, added June 22, 2014. This one again asks for $1550 be wired to a Western Union account, this time to an "Elizabeth Jean Dickman". Notice that the reply and from e-mail address is [email protected], which is again, completely different from the real Pinecone Research's e-mail address.

This fake e-mail, added October 16, 2014 promises $300 per study completion. No Pinecone Research logos are used in the e-mail, however the link in the e-mail points to the website http://cubeb.com.

This fake check, added February 12, 2015 is for $1940. The recipient originally received an e-mail asking if they'd like to participate in a secret shopper assignment for Pinecone Research. They agreed and were mailed a fake check for $1800 with instructions on wiring $1500 to a Western Union account and keeping the remaining $300 for their participation. They agreed, the check bounced, and were then subsequently sent another fake check for $1940.

This fake email, added February 28, 2018 is making solicitations for Customer Service Evaluators who will supposedly be paid $500 for studies to be conducted at the nearest Walmart. The email is using graphics close to what the real Pinecone Research would use in some of their marketing materials, however makes an offer so generous and outrageous, that a legitimate market research company would go bankrupt if they offered an assignment like this! These fake emails are being sent from: [email protected]

Tip! Don't be fooled by logos, or other graphics that are displayed in the e-mail you receive. It is EXTREMELY easy to copy and paste (in other words, steal) images from other websites. It does not mean that the rightful owners of these images have allowed others to use the images.

Who is the real Pinecone Research?

Pinecone Research is actually run by Nielsen, one of the world's largest market research companies. Pinecone Research has consistently been one of the highest ranked panels on SurveyPolice, as they pay the incentives they promise to their members, on time, and without hassle. Rewards for taking surveys and participating in at home product testing include cash, gift cards, and more.

To become a member is 100% free. To join, visit their listing on SurveyPolice. Despite them being constantly targeted by scammers, they are actually a very good survey panel!
