I find the movie interesting because the recurring images experienced by the male protagonist seem like what I term ‘image words’ from the gut brain (the subconscious mind’s vocabulary). It is good how the ending shows that a family can stand together and shelter in faith in each other, and love of each other, even if the subconscious mind is creating what the Ascensioneers call ‘vivid waking dreams’, in the case of the movie, more like vivid waking nightmares.
The movie also shows how one person’s fearful ‘mental filter’ (that of the husband in the movie) can influence another person (in this case the wife) to take on the same ‘mental filter’.
As a phenomenon, the tendency of the human mind to broadcast mental filters can be either good or bad. The difference has to do with the tenor of the emotional portion of the images that are broadcast. Is the emotion negative or positive? That is the key to the effect that broadcasting of one’s own mental filters has on other people.
For instance, in the movie ‘Take Shelter’ one of the visually striking images that recur in the mind of the male protagonist is a ‘murmuration’ of birds, perhaps starlings or sparrows. This is an aerial phenomenon rather like the simultaneous turning and wheeling motion of schools of fish in the water …
In the movie ‘Take Shelter’, the male protagonist feels a recurring anxious feeling, a feeling of foreboding. It is, I feel, because of the negative tenor of his emotion that he takes his recurring image of a murmuration of dark-colored birds to be an omen of impending apocalypse.
Yet many people see a murmuration of birds, and feel joy or wonderment when they see it. Such is the case with the young women in this video …
It is clear, then, that it is the feeling that accompanies visualization of an image that causes its perception as a good image or a bad image.
When a person has recurring images popping up from the subconscious mind, and when these images are accompanied by a strongly negative emotion … one that is hard to deal with without ‘acting out’ … then psychologists might term that condition Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (as with COVID stress). Or they might term it ‘generalized anxiety’; or if the emotions get out of hand, they might term it ‘panic attack’. There is also the psychological term ‘paranoid schizophrenia’, which I gather might be a label for recurring ‘panic attacks’ as in the movie.
Broadcasting of mental filters has a good effect in cases where a person’s mental filters allow him to send forth uplifting images from the subconscious mind. In these instances, families or groups such as social circles and church congregations can stand together with courage against adversity.
Broadcasting of mental filters has a bad effect in cases such as that in the movie, where the protagonist’s fearful mental images cause his wife to become fearful, and cause his Ohio small town community to turn against him and label him mentally imbalanced. Broadcasting of negatively aspected mental filters can, I feel, cause what is termed ‘folie à deux’, ‘folie à famille’, ‘folie à coterie’ (that is, a delusion shared by two people, by a family, or by a small group); or in the case of crowds of people, ‘mass hysteria’. The latter may take place across a town, or across a nation, or even … due to the near-instantaneous nature of global communication … worldwide, as is the case with COVID fears.
Please do not misunderstand: It is not that we ought not take proper precautions regarding COVID; it is just that negatively aspected images to do with COVID can cause inappropriate actions … or no action at all, when action is in fact needed so as to preserve life. For instance, it may well be that COVID vaccines are a ‘hard sell’ worldwide because people are experiencing ‘fawn’, ‘freeze’, or ‘flop’ types of threat responses after taking in too much in the way of online images that cause them to feel the emotion of fear regarding COVID.
In cases where a person is affected by other people’s broadcasting of negatively aspected mental filters (such as with the relentless COVID newscasts last year), the person must learn to view negatively aspected mental images with a neutral mind, as does the male protagonist in the movie ‘Take Shelter’. Through cutting down on visual intake of negative images … for instance, by limiting one’s viewing of negative images online … anxiety about the future can be dealt with nonreactively. Or one may simply stand strong and still, while the image is visualized, until the negative feeling ebbs away.
That means to me that the true ‘shelter’ for one’s mind is a strong, still, neutral stance of mind despite the ups and downs of daily life.

COMPENDIUM: PHYSICAL MIS-INTERPRETATION OF METAPHORS BY THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
The language of the subconscious mind is very physical. The way that it conceives things is like the way that an infant perceives the world. The imagery of the subconscious mind reflects primal joys, joys of the senses, primal fears related to the sensation of physical pain, and strong emotions.
Subconscious words convey an emotion; jubilation or dismay to do with the sensory perceptions of taste, touch, temperature, kinesthesia, sight, and the senses of smell and sound, and the instinct to flee from pain.
The subconscious translates the words that our conscious minds concoct into its own terms, according to its own way of perceiving the world around it. It has no means of grasping abstract concepts, except through visual imagery and sensation.
In my experience, without exception, the sounds that the conscious mind uses as nouns (often words or sets of homonyms that convey both abstract and concrete meanings) are morphed by the subconscious mind into ‘image words’. These are still images (or else ultra-short videoclips) to which is attached high emotional affect.
It is image words that constitute the vocabulary of the subconscious mind. It might be an image of a person falling, along with a feeling of dismay. It might be a picture of a house with windows closed and a scent of mildew, as the subconscious often portrays the human body as a house. It might be an image of a physical injury being inflicted, along with a feeling of agony. It might be an image of a sexual organ, along with a very good or a very bad emotion. It might be a vision of a woman’s breast, and a feeling of fullness in the stomach.
As well, the subconscious mind may use ‘image words’ to represent complex conscious concepts absorbed through rote learning of metaphors and proverbs during the early childhood socialization process. It is the imaginal, emotive nature of metaphors and proverbs that makes them such facile aids in bridging the gap between the subconscious mind of the infant and the various stages of conscious mind development that occur from the end of infancy through puberty.
Other devices that bridge this gap are story, song, and rhyme. Thus, a subconscious ‘image word’ may represent the title of a story or song, or it may represent a character in a song or story that carries one kernel of meaning together with strong emotive content. Or it might represent one image in a rhyme that carries a certain meaning and emotion.
Our dreams are stories told by the subconscious mind using subconscious ‘image words’ representing homonyms, metaphors, proverbs, story, song, and rhyme. If we understand the rules by which the subconscious translates these devices of the conscious mind to subconscious ‘image words’, then it becomes quite easy, just after waking up each morning, to dream journal, and then render a ‘reverse translation’ … from the lingo of the subconscious mind, to the parlance of the conscious mind.
In that way we can discover the hidden tangles in our subconscious minds, the repressed memories and repressed emotions stored here and there in our bodies … in this muscle, or that layer of fascia, or over there, in a nerve ending.

Below is a drawing of an ‘image word’ phrase I heard on the astral plane just recently. It was spoken by ‘Bespeller – Voodoo Man’, who appears in the ‘astral airs’ to resemble the famous artist Gustav Dore …
As to whether this may in actuality be so, I cannot say. By astral hunch I surmise that ‘Bespeller – Voodoo Man’ apparently may be a Sorcerer working with the killing cult of the late ‘Black Magicker’ here in Los Angeles …
Link: “Compendium: Catastrophic Childhood Case Study: ‘Bespeller – Voodoo Man’,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 6 May 2021; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-mHJ ..
Setting all that aside, I feel it possible the image word illustrated below may be at the root of the practice the Black Magicker’s group has of killing wealthy women who are lay members of their congregation so as to fatten their coffers. The subconscious mixup of the word ‘pray‘ with the image of a ‘preying mantis’ may create the underlying, unconscious conviction that ‘preying upon’ the congregation by monks or pastors who spend their life in ‘prayer’ may be warranted.
When I saw this image on the psychic plane I was spooked out right thoroughly. The image seemed to be imbued with a mysterious, dark power. I thought to myself: Could it be there is a Mantid Race’ … a hostile alien astral species … that preys upon humankind? In my heart I guess that might be so, but the thought is such a spook out that I prefer not to put it out there too forthrightly. As a compromise measure, I offer the below as an addition to our list of Image Words …

Some while ago, I clairly heard of a man who, unaccountably, unzipped his trousers at a public concert. From the astral airs I gathered he had repeated that act from time to time. According to the astral stories, no one could figure out why, as in almost all his social interactions he was known for his spiritual demeanor and self-effacing speech.
For a long while, in the dream world, I have found this same man seems to have experiences of demonic obsession or demonic possession. According to the astral airs he founded a Satan cult that worshipped first Satan, then Ba’al (Baal), then Beelzebub.
From that I got the subconscious image word ‘Lord of the Flies’, which is used to describe Beelzebub, might cause worshippers of this demonic entity to act out through indecent exposure, especially during moments of demonic obsession or demonic possession (as that form of dementia is termed in the Christian religion).

I had an intuitive thought just now that for those software programmers who work with the ‘backend’ of programming … like ecommerce and so forth … that if you are hacking and breaking into the ‘backend’ of other people’s online ecommerce solutions, then there is a chance that your subconscious mind might misinterpret all that. You might find yourself tending toward or participating in rectal rape, whether M2M or M2F.
The language of the subconscious mind and of the dream world consists of ‘image words’, as I have discussed in prior blogs. The subconscious mind had a lot to do with fear of death (first chakra), sexuality (second chakra), and desire to conquer the world (third chakra) … the impulses of the first three chakras oldstyle that comprise the ‘lower triangle’ of yogic lore.
The image word ‘backend’ is another word for the ‘fanny’. If an image word like ‘backend’ is spoken or thought all day long in a work context, the subconscious mind can misinterpret the image word in the world of subconscious thought as being in a sexual context, or in the context of desire to conquer the world through rape, which would be a combination of the impulses of the second and third chakras.
Acting out that subconscious ‘image word’ programming can cause your family life to break up, with your wife and child, your family, and it can cause you to gravitate into M2M rectal intercourse activities.
You may recall the term ‘image words’ which I have described before as the language of the subconscious mind …

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) …

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.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Here is a story about a subconscious metaphor and how it might be acted out both symbolically and in the physical realm.
The metaphor has to do with one-upmanship and capitalism. The emotional energy conveyed by the metaphor is the negative opposite of mothering, fathering, and nurturing, the qualities that sustain life on Earth.
During times of social unrest … such as that in which we find ourselves today … the energy described below flares up everywhere within society. It was so in the days of Caligula, whose reign was characterized by cruelty, sadism, and sexual perversion. And it is so today, here in America, as we face the challenge that the USSR faced in the late 1980s, as its republics (similar to our States) vied more and more with the central government.
At times such as this it is crucially important for each of us to align with the energies of mothering and nurturing, rather than with the powers of chaos and anarchy. In that way we can help our governments through the growing crisis.
On a more positive note, we Lightworkers feel that the current time is one of Ascension, and of the beginning of New Life on New Earth. Instead of dwelling on the momentary confusion of the changeup, we envision the vast power of the Incoming Light, the Light of Christ consciousness, to transform the dross of this world to a more humane social order, one that values and uplifts the lives of the unborn and the newly born, whether their fathers acknowledge and protect them or no.
In this age, children are imperiled by the very energies described below. Let us stand up for the children of today, and protect the weak and helpless from the snares of Satan. It is we workaday folk, we retired people, we children of God but a few years older, who are set to the task of protecting the newly born, just as did Saint Joseph, though to his knowledge, the child was not his own. He must have been the talk of the town, but he stood by his fiancee, the Virgin Mary, This act of courage saw the unfoldment of untold good, down through the centuries.
Let us stand by the example of Saint Joseph, and set the world on a new path of higher consciousness in the coming times.
For those who engage in the obverse, negative energies described below, let us pray that Mother Mary intercede for their Souls, that after death they may be saved from the fires of hell, which offer far more torment than that they may know in their earthly life.
This story is entirely fictional. There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.
I have a story to tell you which illustrates subconscious symbolism … which has been a topic I have often talked about in years past … and how subconscious symbolism, especially in the form of metaphor … becomes a picture in the subconscious mind, that then may be acted out in real life, in one way or another.
First I would like to explain to you, this story is entirely fictional; but it is very helpful in understanding how the subconscious mind influences action in the world, through metaphor and symbolism.
In this story there is a person who imagines, for quite some years, that there are people speaking to him, on the psychic plane, through their own gut brains or subconscious minds. And the thing that they are muttering is a slang word … and it is off-color. It is three words. The first word is ‘F—‘. It is a profane word. And the next word is ‘you’ … and then ‘in the’ … and the next word is a kind of off-color word; it starts with a ‘b’ … ‘b—–‘. And the next word is ‘hole’.
I have talked about this metaphor priorly; it is an extremely potent metaphor in the English language right now, especially amongst the younger set. Sorry I cannot just speak it in one line because this is a general audience line and I just do not like to shock anyone.
Let’s say this person kept on hearing this phrase muttered over and over again. And then, at the end of a long time, they found out that there were some people of their acquaintance that had suddenly taken up rectal intercourse. Now rectal intercourse is a visualization and acting out, on the physical plane, of that very set of words that I just explained in an oblique manner to you.
So it could be that the group of people that were subconsciously chanting that, some of them, fell into the acting out because of the undercurrent of symbolic sound that was going on in their subconscious minds.
Then another thing happened in this fictional story, and that is: At the end of a certain length of time … some years … there was a person who passed on; they had had, let’s say, oodles of money. And then let’s just hypothesize that person may have been involved, in some manner, with this group of people that were doing the chant.
The person passed on, and then it was discovered that the estate had dwindled to a tiny fraction of the amount that it used to be. So all the heirs to the estate had been subjected … in a more symbolic manner … to this subconscious slang that was going on; they had been ‘f—- in the b—– hole’. That had happened to them, in a monetary sense.
And to other people it had apparently happened through acting out in the physical body.
If such a scene were to occur, it would be a powerful example of the influence of the subconscious mind, through symbolism and metaphor, on action in the world. So you can add this one to all the other stories about metaphor and acting out that I used to talk about in my blog.
I wish you all the most pleasant of days, and lots of discoveries of the subconscious, because the more we become aware of the subconscious mind, the less influenced we are to act out irrationally.
Have a wonderful day! I hope the air where you live is not at all as smoky as the air in the mountains here.
