What is Victim Consciousness?

This is the home page for author, Lynne For­rest. Lynne cre­ated this site to help you trans­form vic­tim con­scious­ness and learn the life-changing prin­ci­ples she shares through the writ­ten word, audio, video and retreats.

Vic­tim con­scious­ness is defined as an unhappy story we believe that prompts us to see the world out­side us as being the cause of our mis­ery, leav­ing us feel­ing at the mercy of those who “make us feel bad,” “hold us back,” hurt, abuse, or con­trol us.

There are three roles we play when we are in vic­tim con­scious­ness defined by the Vic­tim Tri­an­gle. Learn more …

To hear from her daily with reminders and “seed thoughts” for chang­ing your Mind, check out “Real­ity For­mula; Step­ping Stones to Peace”.

This is a new iPhone app fea­tur­ing Lynne’s Real­ity For­mula. It’s designed specif­i­cally to help you build new neural path­ways to peace.

What is the Real­ity Formula™?

The Real­ity For­mula™ is both the under­stand­ing of how vic­tim con­scious­ness works, AND the anti­dote for it.

We think a thought. We believe it. We feel (the feel­ings that go with ) it. We act (as if) it (is true). We (act in ways that invite oth­ers to help us) prove it.

Said sim­ply, (one more time for the sake of repetition … )


The Real­ity For­mula™ is a for­mula that describes what all minds do. It is the human way. The Real­ity For­mula™ describes a process for awak­en­ing from vic­tim con­scious­ness through Observer con­scious­ness, which is the built-in abil­ity that we humans have that allows us to wit­ness our own thought life and make dif­fer­ent choices. How­ever, in many, if not most humans, it is a func­tion that lies dor­mant within us, shriv­eled from lack of inten­tional use.

Nonethe­less, we uncon­sciously apply the laws described in the Real­ity For­mula™ every day of our lives. We blindly believe what we think, cre­at­ing for our­selves a scary real­ity that we then blame on oth­ers or the world out­side of us. We know no other way. Few of us have ever even con­sid­ered that we don’t have to believe what we think. Instead we feel at the mercy of our own think­ing as we go on blindly believ­ing the same old unhappy thoughts, gen­er­at­ing the same old mis­er­able feel­ings and react­ing in the same old non-productive ways. In other words, we cre­ate a neural path­way of mis­ery, which then becomes our default reac­tion in life.

We are the ones who cre­ate the world we expe­ri­ence by react­ing out of our own ter­ri­fy­ing beliefs about our­selves and the world. If we believe we are worth­less, we feel worth­less, we act (treat our­selves) as if we are worth­less, which invites oth­ers to treat us accord­ingly, and proves to us that we are, indeed, worthless.

The Real­ity For­mula™ takes the mind’s own way of func­tion­ing, and teaches us how to redi­rect our thoughts and align with Uni­ver­sal guid­ing prin­ci­ples for Real­ity that bring about a state of peace we never imag­ined was pos­si­ble for us.

Most of us assume we are sim­ply at the mercy of our life cir­cum­stances, but such a per­spec­tive will not bring us lib­er­a­tion, much less inner peace, inner joy, or outer har­mony with oth­ers. But there is another way of see­ing. Lynne’s work intro­duces you to a way of life that will rad­i­cally change the way you relate to your­self, and the world around you.

Through Lynne’s writ­ing you will learn all about vic­tim con­scious­ness, its roles, and the Real­ity For­mula™ for peace. WE will learn how your mind, like all minds, holds pre­con­ceived, often painfully lim­ited, and lim­it­ing pat­terns of thought, called core-beliefs, that hold you pris­oner in an unkind inner, and frus­trat­ing outer, mind-made, per­sonal real­ity and how to inter­vene on those beliefs by refram­ing them.

Through Lynne’s blog, you can learn prin­ci­ples and ways of trans­form­ing your lim­it­ing ideas to a higher state of con­scious­ness that will deliver you into an inner state of peace, both with your­self, and the world around you. You will find Lynne’s per­sonal jour­ney shared here through her blog and articles.

I think of us humans as ener­getic beings hav­ing an ongo­ing dia­log with a Liv­ing Intel­li­gence that totally sup­ports us on our life jour­ney by bring­ing us consciousness-expanding oppor­tu­ni­ties that chal­lenge old, lim­it­ing ideas of who we are; a Liv­ing Intel­li­gence that helps us remem­ber our true identity.”

I see my role in the world much like the lit­tle kid in the story about the Emperor who wore no clothes, who alone thought to announce the obvi­ous, shout­ing, ‘… but he is naked!’ into the crowd.”

I sim­ply share the tools, resources, and a process for using them, that con­tin­ues to work for me, and for all those around me who choose to use them.”

I have been blessed to watch how the mes­sage I bring trans­forms lives, my own, and those close to me; my own chil­dren, grand­chil­dren, as well as other fam­ily, friends and clients, are liv­ing fuller, hap­pier lives in tune with Real­ity, and in closer har­mony with Source.”

So wel­come to our home base: a place where true per­sonal change is ini­ti­ated and sup­ported through writ­ten resources, live events, retreats, and train­ings, as well as per­sonal oppor­tu­ni­ties for pri­vate inter­ac­tion with Lynne.
