The Contemptibility of Electronic Backyard Voyeurism . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 July 2021
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California

Dear Ones,

In the last few years I have found that whenever I go for a swim in my backyard here in the San Fernando Valley, although no one but I am there in the backyard, the eyes of about 10 men and boys are electronically trained on my swimming form.

With my astral hearing, I hear them offering prurient quips, each to the other. I am the butt of ‘Archie Bunker’ type jokes offered by men whose minds are no larger than the neurons in their genital organs. It seems they are without Higher Minds at all.

How can a woman who holds to the good and true wish such subhuman beings well? In my mind’s eye I see these men just as in the drawings below … less than human; hopelessly enmired in karma.

I wonder how it can be that my neighbors would countenance such a thing? Are there no honorable men and women on our street, who are willing to stand against such low-minded behavior and let these men and boys know how poorly they are behaving?

Surely it is better to talk amongst yourselves and resolve this issue than to go the expense and personal disgrace of a lawsuit. Please end the sexual abuse and verbal abuse of women here in the San Fernando Valley. It is ignoble and unworthy of the true and good man, the man who is worthy of esteem in the eyes of his neighbors.

Thoughts on Handheld Psychosis . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 25 October 2019; published on 10 February 2021

Dear Ones,

I had an insight about handheld psychosis, which lies within my larger category ‘virtual reality psychosis’ …

The pituitary gland, located in the middle of the brain at a point just above the eyebrows, is light-sensitive. It may be that the people suffering from handheld psychosis have pituitary glands injured by light crystal display (LCD) or cathode ray tube (CRT) screen light.

I suggest Light therapy: Sitting or working in sunlit shade. And I suggest altogether avoiding LCD and CRT screen exposure.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Image Words: Stalking in the Physical Realm Caused by ‘Following’ Online . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 28 December 2020

Dear Ones,

You may recall the term ‘image words’ which I have described before as the language of the subconscious mind …

Link: “‘Image Words’: The Vocabulary of the Subconscious Mind,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 25 May 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cS5 ..

I have come across a potentially physically dangerous image word that contributes to the recent phenomenon I term ‘virtual reality psychosis’. That is the words ‘follow’ and follower’ that are used for subscriptions to websites. (WordPress and Youtube are two of many such sites.)

Apparently these terms are creating in the subconscious minds of the followers and of the people being followed the image of one person pursuing or stalking another person.

That people are carrying around handhelds with them makes the notion of ‘following’ seem physical as well: One person posts a blog or comment, and then notice of this action appears on the follower’s handheld. It may seem as if the follower is being ‘followed’ in the physical realm by the blogger because he or she is needing to read messages on the handheld. In other words, he or she is being ‘followed about’ by messages from the blogger.

Over the years, I have run across several instances of people who are very ‘plugged in’ ‘following’ me in the physical realm. To me it seemed like physical ‘stalking’, as if their subconscious mind was reading my subconscious mind and queuing in on where I was headed, then passing by me in that location, without the conscious mind logging onto the physical encounter.

There were a series of odd occasions on which it seemed to me that various people might have been stalking me; yet though danger was sensed, nothing bad ever happened …

Link: “Alice’s Perilous Tales: Fatal Dungeons and Dragons Game?” by Alice B. Clagett, partially excerpted on 23 April 2020 from blogs filmed on 15 March 2018 and on 20 November 2016; revised on 11 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-hHF ..

It was almost as if these people’s subconscious minds were tangled up and glommed together in an imagined game of ‘Fatal Dungeons and Dragons’ … which my subconscious mind logged onto. I would see the cars of the people, or the people themselves, in incongruous, widely dispersed settings. Intuitively, I would sense the need for caution. Yet nothing came of these events; like wisps of smoke, the encounters would take place on the physical plane; and then within an hour the cars and the people would disperse. It was just exceedingly odd … unfathomable, really.

There have been more and more such odd encounters in the last two years. It is as if the ‘stalkers’ or ‘followers’ do not consciously recognize me, although I may know them. It is almost as if they were subconsciously ‘acting out’ in a fugue state. For instance, this man that I knew from prior acquaintance passed me twice in as many days, in locations far apart, yet he did not recognize me …

Link: “The Stalker: Encounter with a Multiple Personality?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 9 July 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dyb ..

In one such instance, with a different person, I walked up to them. They did not recognize me at all, although I had been their acquaintance for a long time. There was no one else around. It was as if they were staring into space before them. I was there, right in front of them, but they did not see me. Yet when I got to about 3 feet in front of them, and accosted them, they ‘snapped out of it’.

In another instance I recall I was in a remote area of the Arizona Desert … somewhat lost, but not very much so. By luck, at an intersection I found a service station with wi-fi. Just as I got there my cell phone rang. The person calling was someone I knew, but not someone who had ever called me before or since. Intuition told me the person had fallen into a ‘stalking’ mode, and was attempting to triangulate my position for GPS geolocation. I could tell from the tone of voice … which I characterize as ‘cat about to eat the canary’ … that if I kept talking my geolocation might be determined, and this might not result in anything good for me. So I said goodbye quickly.

Along the same lines, I remember walks in the Santa Monica Mountains in 2017 and 2018, where I was carrying my cell phone. Why I should do so is a good question, as cell phone reception is almost always compromised in remote locations in the mountains, and that would be where I would be most in need of cell phone transmission, for lack of people passing by, in case of a fall.

At any rate, during those years I carried my cell phone on mountain walks. Almost every time I went for a walk I would hear a ‘pingback’. I surmised these pingbacks had to do with geolocation, and intuition told me someone was hoping to involve me in an imaginary stalking scenario. Why would that be? It seems to me the internet ‘following’ is causing this imaginary stalking game to occur.

I recall in 2019 I decided the psychic chase was by far not my cup of tea, and I stopped carrying my cell phone on mountain walks. Then one of my acquaintances casually asked if I were still using my cell phone, and by that I got my ‘make’ for the psychic stalking game I had been encountering.

Here is another instance: For years now, my home phone rings daily with one of three sales messages. I have tried by every available means to make the messages stop; unsuccessfully so, until I tried using a whistle. Here is the question: What would be in it for the salesman, to be constantly harassing people about home improvements and ways to abate utility costs, after the people say they are not interested? It seems to me this could be another form of ‘stalking’ created by the ‘follow’ image word.

Then there is the ‘actor impersonator’ phenomenon that I have encountered on 5 occasions since 2015. In the first four instances, I feel it could have been just a case of mistaking the identities of strangers as being people I know. But in the most recent instance, which occurred only a month or so ago, it was clearly an ‘actor impersonator’ phenomenon …

I was in the parking lot of my church about mid-day. I was going to sit under the tent where church services are held; I noticed a man sitting in about the middle of the tent. I went up to greet him, and noticed he was made up to look like a man I knew: Almost identical body type, same height, same age, but with an odd, blonde wig on, with hair that curled up from his shoulders. His voice was quite different from that of my acquaintance, and his tone, unlike that of my acquaintance, was somewhat derogatory or ‘blaming’. In addition, he had strikingly odd ‘painted on,’ dark brown eyebrows that looked like this (or the reverse of this) …

Drawing: “Actor Impersonator with Blonde Wig and Striking, Stippled Black Eyebrows,” by Alice B. Clagett, 28 December 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0

What could possibly be more odd that that, I ask! When I walked up to him, he said his name was ‘Tim’ and that he had been going to the Sunday services at the church for about two years. While he talked, he was looking at the handheld in his lap, as if he were reading a movie script. I had a feeling there was likely a person named Tim who had been attending Sunday services, but that maybe this unusual person might not be that same Tim. If that were so, then what might explain his odd appearance there? Could the ‘actor impersonator’ phenomenon perhaps be a takeoff on the game of stalking or following, I wonder?

Here are variations on the theme: I recall an instance in 2011, or thereabouts, when an acquaintance decided I was a drug dealer out to get him; and in about the year 2018, another case where a group of acquaintances decided I was a CIA agent out to get them. Why would these hard-to-shake instances of paranoia be occurring in people I had known to be completely sane in years past? I gather it might be another manifestation of a sense of helpless panic caused by the ‘follow’ image word.

Thus I gather that the image word ‘follow’ must be part of the current virtual reality psychosis that many appear to be experiencing. And a very important part, as it may result in stalkings and murders on the physical plane. For instance, there is a chance that a habit of viewing movies to do with stalking might ratchet up to stalking human beings because of the extra ‘umph’ added by the ‘follow’ phenomenon. As well, during hunting season there is a chance that stalking deer might ratchet up to stalking human beings because of the ‘follow’ phenomenon, I feel.

I am guessing we do not need to be nearly so ‘hooked up’ or ‘plugged in’ as modern culture surmises. It could be, for instance, that the astral stories that have been so prevalent in my mini-noosphere … and those of others with whom I have spoken … and the ‘glom effect’ that can cause violent astral scenes, may be partly caused by our being too ‘plugged in’, by ‘following’ and being ‘followed’ by too many other people.

To be on the safe side, for the time being, I have eliminated ‘following’ as an option for my website. The minute I did so, the astral stories and psychic hullabaloo I experienced over the four-day Christmas holiday abated. Time will tell whether this welcome change will be long-lasting.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

MODERN-DAY INSTANCES OF MASS HYSTERIA, BOTH REGIONAL AND GLOBAL

It seems to me that the global response to COVID-19 is an anomaly. I feel, intuitively, that the response does not match the stimulus.

I am reminded of an upwelling of fear-based feelings in the Durango, Colorado, community in the winter of 2015. It seems to me that the global COVID-19 response is like that, but global in nature.

GLOBAL INSANITY, CHAOTIC NODES, AND COGNITIVE DISSONANCE

I note that Yogi Bhajan, in the 1970’s, offered a prophetic notion of insanity in the coming times, and how we can help by giving other people hope …

Link: “Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Expand: Now Is the Time,” at 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) … https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/seva-service/yogi-bhajan-lecture-expand-now-time ..

I note that well known sound healer Tom Kenyon predicted chaotic nodes and cognitive dissonance in his Hathor Archives, beginning in the the early 2000s …

Link: “Cognitive and Emotional Challenges During Chaotic Nodes: A Hathor Planetary Message Through Tom Kenyon,” 14 October 2013 … https://tomkenyon.com/cognitive-and-emotional-challenges-during-chaotic-nodes ..

In addition, there have been Buddhist and Christian prophecies about fear-based responses by public officials to relatively rapid changes in the social order, in Earth’s climate, and in human Awareness. It seems to me these rapid changes may be causing speculation about End Times and a Second Coming, referred to by Ascensioneers, in a positive sense, as the Time of New Beginning.

I see that, just as Yogi Bhajan, Tom Kenyon, and Buddhist and Christian visionaries predicted, the peoples of the developed countries of Earth are suffering from a form of madness right now.

SOLAR EVENTS AS CAUSES OF MASS HYSTERIA

I had priorly hypothesized that wellings up of cognitive dissonance might be occurring due to Solar events such as Earth-directed coronal mass ejections and solar winds. I still feel Solar events to be contributing factors.

However, we are in a time of unprecedentedly deep solar minimum, and so the current issues we face, with regard to overblown, fear-based governmental response to health challenges, must have to do with factors other than solar events.

VIRTUAL REALITY PSYCHOSIS AND SENSORY DEPRIVATION AS CONTRIBUTING FACTORS

I am pegging the issue that came up in Durango in the fall of 2015 and the current response to the COVID-19 pandemic to be waves of mass hysteria, now global in nature, possibly triggered by virtual reality psychosis. (See my blog category: Virtual reality psychosis ..)

I feel that plugging in to the virtual reality is causing sensory deprivation … almost like being in a sensory isolation chamber … for the populations of the developed nations of Earth (which have access to handhelds and computers).

Virtual reality overstimulates the visual and auditory senses. What is lacking is interactivity with the physical community, the sense of tribe, the sense of touching another human being, the subtle input of facial expression that cements our emotional responses to the emotions of those around us.

COVID-ENFORCED PREVENTION OF ACCESS TO PUBLIC LANDS AS A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR

This sensory deprivation has been made worse all over Earth by the COVID epidemic isolation restrictions. For instance, at a time when grounding with Earth is essential to our sanity here in Los Angeles, there are mayoral restrictions on dirt time. One is not allowed to sit on the Earth in this city. Campgrounds, which might save Angelenos and return us to sanity, are also shut down. How can the government prevent us from walking on our own ground, our own publicly owned natural lands? How can that possibly be, I wonder?

COVID-ENFORCED SOCIAL ISOLATION AS A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR

How could public officials suggest retreat to virtual reality, in work and play, or as a substitute for family and friendly relationships, when virtual reality may well lower our immune response and worsen the health challenges we face? Many countries of Earth, I feel, intuitively sense this to be so; COVID restrictions in those countries reflect their more grounded approach to health care, and the lower number of COVID deaths in those countries vouches for their probity.

GUIDELINES FOR STAYING SAFE, AND TO HELP PUBLIC OFFICIALS NOT OVER-REACT TO NOVEL FEARFUL EVENTS

Some while ago I wrote up guidelines for staying safe, and guidelines to help public officials not to over-react because of fear during Solar events. Even though we are in a deep Solar Minimum, we are seeing overblown fear-based governmental responses to health challenges today. Thus it could be that my earlier work will be a helpful read …

A 3-MINUTE ‘ESCAPE HATCH’ TECHNIQUE TO PREVENT FEAR-BASED ACTIONS IN THE WORLD

In addition, I recall a three-minute exercise to calm the mind, that I used to teach my yoga students in the 1980’s with unfailingly positive response. Anyone at all can do that exercise, and still the waves of noospheric chaos whenever they threaten to impinge on one’s actions in the world …

Virtual Reality Psychosis . a drawing by Alice B. Clagett

  • VIRTUAL REALITY PSYCHOSIS: DRAWING BY ALICE

Dear Ones,

Because electronics weaken our energy field and are also used as means of spying upon us, they can create what I term virtual reality psychosis. For more on this, see my blog category: Virtual reality psychosis

Here is a drawing I did that I feel reflects the state of mind a person has when they are afflicted with virtual reality psychosis …

‘Normalization’ of Paraphilia on the Silver Screen . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 May 2020

Dear Ones,

The 2018 movie “Bad Samaritan” is about a serial killer who is a bondage and discipline (B/D) antisocial personality. From the antisocial stance, it seems to me this movie might be seen as an attempt to win over the ‘normal’ public to the notion of paraphilia or sexual deviation, by presenting the joy the serial killer gets in performing ritual acts of B/D, yet at the same time ‘softening’ the ending by allowing the ‘normal’, the hero, to reverse the roles and perform B/D upon the serial killer.

The feel of the “Bad Samaritan” movie, to my perception, is like that of the 2018 movie “Tag” which popularizes the prison game of ‘rape tag’ by ‘softening’ it so that it appears to be a socially acceptable game of male bonding.

Link: “Bad Samaritan (2018),” in IMDb … https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3203528/ ..

Link: “Tag (2018),” in IMDB … https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2854926/ ..

From an intuitive stance, I feel it possible that many movies have been made in the last 20 years that represent the antisocial point of view. As to whether the entertainment industry is being influenced by ASPs through mind control, or whether the problem may lie nearer to home, I cannot say.

It is because of the antisocial tenor of many modern offerings on the silver screen that I feel very strongly the importance to the Lightworker of grounding in the real world rather than in the world of virtual fantasy.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 6 December 2019
Prior title: What If the United States Became Less Federal and More Regional in Government? 

Dear Ones,

ECONOMIC STRESSORS THAT MAY LEAD TO DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT          top

I have some thoughts on the state of the nation. Intuitively, I sense economic stressors that may gradually lead to our Federal government taking a lesser role in the governance of the United States, compared to regional alliances of states. I see the Federal government continuing to provide military defense, social security payments, and leadership in foreign affairs. I also see states taking more initiative in economics for their regions.

As to trade, I see future reliance on established railroad routes and water routes such as the Mississippi river. I anticipate that, should there be a gradual lessening of Federal power, then there might be more trade within an economic region, and less trade globally and nationally.

As to finance, I see potential reliance on barter, with care no to place our financial assets in overseas locations. Local-employment based credit unions may come into favor as regional savings repositories.

There may be more reliance on those economic sectors that hold strong during recessions … such as locally grown food, locally obtainable building materials, and water supplies not piped in over long distances.

As to economic stressors, I suggest the overarching stressor of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic impact of the HIV pandemic, and stress of regional aridity due to long-distance water transport costs,

A socially disruptive stressor is handheld psychosis, which may lead to chaotic events such as mass murders and actions by public utilities and military regarding perceived dangers that do not truly exist. This might precipitate social unrest in regions of the United States pinpointed by the Jade Helm exercises.

CAVEATS REGARDING POSSIBLE LOCI OF SOCIAL UNREST          top

In United States cities, the high cost of housing and the increasing phenomenon of homelessness may lead to social unrest and attempted land grabs through anarchist behavior; this is something for which, I feel, every large city mayor and every state government ought to have on hand emergency action plans. For states in arid regions, emergency anti-anarchist plans ought, I feel, to highlight security of water transport systems. Electrical grids, I feel, might also be an anarchist target.

We people in large United States cities can be of big help in creating peaceful environments for our children by offering our law enforcement departments volunteer help through neighborhood watch programs.

ON MAINTAINING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IN THE FACE OF CHANGE          top

It seems unlikely to me that anything would happen in a moment; rather I feel that the United States might very slowly tend towards a model of government more akin to the state by state model of our early years as a nation. We may find, in future, that traveling from one state to the next is a refreshingly new experience. Not everyone may be watching the same thing on television every night anymore; there may be less airline flights from here to there; and so the natural flavor and local color of each region of the United States may become more striking to the casual tourist.

In addition, it may be that some regions of the United States may be more perilous for tourist travel, as was the case for travelers in the early years of our nation.

I realize the prospect of change can be unsettling. It is good to keep in mind that changes such as those spoken of above … if, indeed, change there be … would in all likelihood take place by slow stages, over the course of the next century or two. Thus I feel certain there would be plenty of time to make our plans and find our footing in the new.

POSSIBLE FUTURE UNITED STATES ECONOMIC REGIONS AND TRADE REGIONS          top

Below are some maps I have adapted to show possible United States economic regions and trade regions of centuries to come. I would be interested on your comments regarding this intriguing topic of the eventual possibility that the United States government might become less centralized, and more imbued with local flavor and with the strong spirit of our local communities.
