IMPORTANT: While it seems to me that I may once have had an experience of encountering a multiple personality such as the one described below, the people in the first image, and the silhouette of the man in the second image do not in the least resemble the man I encountered. In fact, I chose to use these images for that reason.
Because I once apparently encountered a perilous situation with regard to a multiple personality … the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of literary fame … I have added this blog to the category: Alice’s perilous tales
I looked up Multiple Personality Disorder in Wikipedia. (1) There I found this image …

I have seen Multiple Personality Disorder described in the literature in terms reminiscent of the above image … to the effect that a person with Multiple Personality Disorder is a sad and shivering victim of a dysfunctional ego, splintered into many different mirrors of the roles the victim sees being played out in other people.
However, in some cases, I feel this clinical impression of the disorder to be disarming and misleading. Specifically, when Multiple Personality Disorder results from a catastrophic childhood experience (2), the sexually expressive personality can have a ‘kill for the thrill’ aspect, as in the case of Jack the Ripper. (3) In other words, the sexual aspect may be that of a sexual predator (4) …
I used the below image in a different context (5) before, but it would also be good to view it in the context of Multiple Personality Disorder (also known as Dissociative Identity Disorder).
In the latter context, the illustration might show the ‘normal’ personality of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder, and a ‘serial killer’ personality ‘behind’ him …
Image: Serial killer personality behind the silhouette of the ‘normal’ personality of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder. The serial killer personality is depicted by an altered version of the painting “The Great Red Dragon and the Beast from the Sea,” by William Blake, 1805, public domain; and the ‘normal’ personality is depicted by the silhouette of a man (who is facing forward). The silhouette is an adaptation of “Man standing silhouette.svg” by Open Clip Art Library, 16 April 2009, in Wikimedia Commons, public domain. I chose this silhouette because it did not resemble anyone whom I felt to be a multiple personality. Adapted and compiled by Alice B.

Then, there might be another personality, that of a helpless young woman … or of the helpless victim of the serial killer. In that case, the multiple personality might dress like a woman and behave in an effeminate manner …

Each personality might have a different name, if overheard on the ‘astral airs’ … startlingly different names, like Jim, for the ‘normal’; Estelle, for the ‘victim’, and Panther, for the serial killer. These are just ‘made up’ names I’m using as examples.
In my own thankfully uneventful encounter with a Panther persona a few years ago, because I am psy, I noticed a demonic aspect to the energy of the Panther personality; that is the impetus for my second image in this blog, the collage of the shadow man and the William Blake drawing, which I slightly altered.
Speaking intuitively, I feel there is a possibility that the ‘Jack the Ripper’ aspect of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder might have mind control abilities that might aid him in pursuit of prey … hypnotic abilities. Here I pose the example of the cuttlefish, which hypnotizes its prey with oscillating color displays …

Maybe the sudden switch from one personality to another, in the case of a stalker who suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder, has a similar hypnotic effect on the victim. Could this be about the expectations of the victim being suddenly flummoxed? Could the victim of the Panther, like the victim of the color-oscillating cuttlefish, be in a state of shocked bemusement? A state of ‘mind mud’?
I have further hypotheses that the splintered personality who mimics the roles of those he sees around him might also feel that one of his favored personalities obsesses other people and causes them to act out roles in life.
He might also feel that acting out of favored roles, say through the movies, might influence a movie-viewing community to minimize the import of a ‘Jack the Ripper’ persona. In other words, that he might make a movie that would alter societal expectations in such a way that the predatorial role becomes socially acceptable. Would this be what is termed in psychology ‘projection’ or might there be some truth to it, from an astral perspective, I wonder?
People who hypothesize the existence of demonic energies separate from the shadow of the personality of a person, and as separate from the shadow of the personality of the collective unconscious of humankind, would infer the further threat of black magic energies coursing through the predatory persona of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder.
Were it to be so, then the hypothetical threat … that of a demonically possessed patient and a demonically obsessed victim … would be the greater.
Thus I urge psychologists and psychiatrists to approach therapy for people suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder with utmost attention to their personal safety and for that of those restraining and seeing to the needs of the patient.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
