Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

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.

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

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.

In love, light and joy
I Am of the Stars

Subconscious Symbolism: She Tore My Heart Out . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 22 January 2020
Subconscious metaphor: She tore my heart out

Dear Ones,

In the astral realm early this morning I encountered an amazing subconscious inversion of the metaphor ‘She tore my heart out’ … meaning that a woman walked out on a man. Apparently there is an antisocial personality who, in his subconscious mind, thinks of himself as ‘she’.

He is a group leader of a ‘killing cult’, and as a ‘circle of one’ person, figures he is married to all the men and women in the group. This group leader has his own definition of family … crime family, in his case. His ‘family’ consists only of the men and women who are his ‘wives’ and loyal followers, a la Charles Manson.

He has his followers murder (‘euthanize’) their parents and give him their parents’ goods and money. According to the ‘astral airs’, In 2015 this practice of euthanasia extended to the general community where he lives, as he had his followers euthanize old men there for their real estate, goods and money, or else for a payback by money-strapped relatives. Then the community ran out of old men who might be euthanized.

He also euthanizes members of his group when they reach their 60s, as their earning ability for him diminishes by then, and he wants to redistribute their real estate, goods and money to others more profitable of his followers.

This group leader purportedly kills his woman followers’ babies in the womb through his psychic powers, or else has them killed in ‘blood sacrifice’ rituals after birth. I am guessing he may figure … if this is true … that natal family bonding might diminish the hold he has on his followers. Also, if it were true, it might be he would figure that it would be a long time before a newborn could contribute income to his ‘crime family’. At any rate, there are no children, and no old people in his group … according to the ‘astral airs’ … except for himself.

When a man threatens to leave his group, this group leader purportedly cuts off the potential betrayer’s penis and swallows it. Then he has that man dress as a woman and bring in capital for him as a sex worker (through whatever acts of sex remain to him in his altered state).

Getting back to the metaphor in the title of the blog: As the ‘astral airs’ will have it, when a woman threatens to leave this leader’s group, he thinks of the metaphor ‘She tore my heart out!” As aforestated, in his subconscious mind, this leader thinks of himself as a ‘she’. Thus his  subconscious mind changes the meaning of the metaphor: It visualizes the leader tearing the heart out of the betraying woman follower.

That is in fact how it plays out time after time: A woman follower leaves the killing cult, or threatens to leave, or leaves and then comes back for a visit. The group grabs her, and on the dark of the moon, or on the full moon, in a forest clearing, mutilates her, ties her to a stake, and literally, physically, tears her heart out. Then the group leader and his wife drink her blood.

This is quite an interesting inversion of a subconscious metaphor, I feel. It is also an instance of the ‘physical form heresy’ …

Link: “The Physical Form Heresy,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 17 May 2017; revised on 11 October 2017  … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7cY ..

… and of ‘black communion’ or ‘black Mass’ of Satanic lore. I note, in passing, that the instances of physical form heresy in the cited link purport, on the astral airs, to be stories of ‘acting out’ and leader’s advice to followers by the same killing cult leader as is described in the current blog.

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

Timeline Stuckness and Subconscious Symbolism: ‘It Was the End of My Life’ . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 8 December 2019
Subconscious metaphor: It was the end of my life.

Dear Ones,

Here is a subconscious symbol that contributes to Soul wounding: Let’s say a mortifying event happens during puberty, and it has to do with newly learned skills of sexual expression. Then societal expectations hit with a boom, in the form of remonstrance from an authority figure.

It’s the end of your life!, you think with ‘kerplunk’ … and your subconscious mind repeats this every time you think of that transmogrifying experience. It was the end of my life! The end of my life! I might as well be dead!

Gosh! Talk about a death wish sort of thought! What a ‘Darth Vaderville’ metaphor!

This Sunday morning, in the wee small hours of the still dark day, an answer arrived via the sleeping Soul of a novel visitor to my contiguous astral realm. The visitor said: Say to the person with this Soul wounding: So …. What happened next?

And the person said: I went on to have many fulfilling sexual experiences with other people.

They said that, and then all of a sudden the astral airs cleared. It was as if their subconscious mind said: Oh my! It was NOT THE END OF MY LIFE! I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m alive!

My thanks to this wise astral visitor, and my thanks to my Ascension Team that an answer has been found for the timeline stuckness caused by the metaphor: It was the end of my life!

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

In the autumn of 2018 I had been attending senior exercise classes at a local fitness center for several years. I was over the initial condition, plantar fasciitis, that prevented my usual hiking and steered me to the fitness center, and I was getting tired of doing the same not very challenging exercises time after time, in a darkly lit room, with teachers sometimes good, and sometimes not to my liking, and music so loud that I had to wear noise dampening ear muffs.

NO SECURE PLACE TO LEAVE MY BELONGINGS WHILE AT THE FITNESS CENTER

There were other issues to deal with at the fitness center. Topmost was the issue of security for my person and my belongings. The front desk had advised, on my first day there, that cars in the parking lot were often broken into; and that I should leave nothing of value in the cars. The advice of the front desk regarding the lockers in the changing room was the same: Locking the lockers would not avail; I ought leave nothing of value in them.

I asked about the high security lockers in front of the front desk, which had keys, and the people at the desk advised these were also not secure; I later found that front desk personnel had the keys, and these personnel changed out frequently. Thus it must be that any number of ex-staff might, theoretically, have keys to the high security lockers.

Where was one to leave one’s wallet and car keys, then? I thought maybe I keep them in a backpack at the back of the exercise class, and stand directly in front of the backpack throughout.

This I found to be a successful approach, although I was only able to participate when one of the teachers asked the people in the group to stride round the room as one of her exercises, by first donning my backpack.

In addition, there was a woman in one of the classes, perhaps cognitively challenged, who would attempt to filch our belongings, and on Fridays adults not in the class would sneak in and walk off with people’s handhelds, keys, and purses.

In short, while in that class, it was ‘heads up’ at every moment, with regard to personal security.

THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING SUN HAT

Two of My Sun Hats Disappear in the Changing Room

Along those lines, and before getting back to the true topic of today’s blog, I remember how, when I first started going to the fitness center, when I would go to the changing room after class, that I somehow unaccountably walked out of the changing area missing my sun hat. This I knew because I needed to put it on as I exited the lobby for the parking lot, and could not. I went back in and looked in the locker, and asked at the front desk … No hat! Quite a mystery!

Because this happened a second time, in much the same way, it seemed clear that something was up, and that something had to do with the changing room.

So then a third time, after class, I walked into the changing area, this time with careful determination to keep an eye on my hat. I changed in a restroom stall, so that I could keep my hat and belongings on the wall side of the stall. I walked out of the stall and stood at a restroom sink, belongings touching my left leg.

The Cleaning Lady Who Chased Me with Her Broom

I looked up at the mirror as I began to brush my teeth. Then I saw a cleaning lady sidle up behind me, on the left side, and bend down toward the bag in which I had placed my hat. I grabbed the top of the bag and looked her in the eye. She grabbed her broom handle and lifted it over her head.

I grabbed my bag and went to the far side of the locker room to put my shoes on. She followed me, broom handle raised, aiming to position herself behind my back, between the lockers and the bench on which I was sitting.

Eh, So What? at the Front Desk

As, had she attained that stance I would have been a ‘sitting duck’, I grabbed my bag and my shoes and went out into the lobby of the fitness center. There I explained what had happened. The person at the front desk said that the cleaning woman was a good worker, and that she would calm down after awhile. Lacking other recourse, I sat in a chair in the lobby to put on my walking shoes, and left for the parking lot, hat in hand.

NEW TEACHERS AT SENIOR FITNESS CLASSES

‘Kali’ as a Fitness Instructor

A woman arrived as a teacher of one of the senior fitness classes, and I did not like her, because of her masculine-acting, bossy manner of teaching and her sexual manner.

As to looks, she reminded me of a woman named Ansie [assumed name], a lady I met in Durango. I had begun to experience uneasiness towards Ansie and her husband in 2015, I think it was, and because of that had since avoided them. The cause of my uneasiness was what I perceived to be a mismatch between their emotional affect and their actions and speech. It felt like something was ‘amiss’ … something I could not quite put my finger on. Possibly I was just not their type, and vice versa?

Although it seemed likely that this new teacher, despite the strong resemblance, was not the person I knew in Durango (as the former seemed younger), I did my best to avoid the new  teacher, and rather went to the classes led by teachers I felt to be inspiring … those who projected heart centered Awareness.

A Second ‘Kali’ Is Hired as Fitness Instructor

For a while that worked out right well; but then another teacher arrived whose energy was very like that of the masculine-acting, bossy teacher with the sexual manner. I remember it felt like pure sexual hatred was being projected from her second chakra.

I remember wondering if she might have been a transgender person who was unable to achieve orgasm because of her sex-change operation, and if that might be the reason for the sexual rage I sensed?

I wondered if she had an ailing mother at home whom she resented, and if maybe I reminded her of her mother?

Could she be a sex worker, I wondered? I remember how coldly she rebuffed a shy, flirtatious remark by a man in the front of the class. I wondered: If she were to be a sex worker, who could her prospective clients be?

I Will Nail You!

I remember hiding behind a pillar during the class to avoid being hit by what seemed to me to be astral ‘nails’ of sexual hatred being slung at me. She seemed to be saying, on the psychic plane: I will nail you! I will nail you! …

I remember once going to the restroom mid-class, to get away from the vibe and the loud music, and hearing three senior women from the class masturbating in the restroom. What on earth was going on, I wondered? I had never encountered anything like that before, in my life!

Hiding Behind a Pillar to Elude Her

I remember how, when I moved behind the pillar at the back of the classroom, that new teacher at the front of the room would move to one side, scowling, to get a clear view of me. Then I would move slightly to the other side, to block her view. Then she would shift position, to get a clear view of me. And so on.

Twice, she became so angry at my avoiding her that she walked directly up to me, as I stood in the back of the room, and began doing plies, feet spread about a yard apart. Glaring at me, she yelled: This is how it’s done. You see? This is how it’s done!

This so horrified me that, in December 2018 I decided senior exercise class was not worth it, and opted out of the fitness center, in favor of the mountain walks I so love.

FOR ADULT VIEWING ONLY … IMAGE OF KALI CLOTHED

The final episode of my misadventures at the fitness center has so haunted me for the last eight months that I finally made a drawing of how the spirit of that teacher seemed to me, on the psychic plane. My first rendition was explicit as to sexual organs, and that surely will not do, online. After awhile I thought I might add clothes or other obscuration, such as a paint blotch, and then it would be all right to put the drawing online; yesterday I did that.

Nevertheless, because of the unpleasant nature of the topic of the drawing, and the sexual connotation, I advise only those over 18 years of age look at the below image. I feel that would be best. In addition, for those adults who, like me, do not like prurient topics, I suggest that you avoid looking at the drawing as well; as an alternative, you might simply read the description …

Teaching Reading to Children Who Have Autism or Learning Disabilities . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 16 June 2019; published on 11 August 2019

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a video with thoughts about teaching reading to children who have autism or learning disabilities. I later thought, most likely all this has already been thought of by educators. Just in case it might be helpful, I later thought, I offer it here. It has to do with my idea of a teaching technique using the symbolic language of the gut brain.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I just had a thought today that for people who cannot read … say, autistic people and people with other sorts of reading disabilities, we could try teaching shorthand or pictograms instead.

I think this might have some success, because shorthand and pictograms relate to the language of the gut brain … the symbolic language of the gut brain. And so, where certain important functions of the higher brain are lacking or taken over by other functions, it might be possible to train the gut brain, in the way of the Neanderthals, to accomplish a task similar to the task that the higher brain accomplishes in other people. That is what I think … this being one example of that.  I think it is worth a try.

Another thing that might be tried is metaphors, because metaphors are remembered very well by the gut brain, and the gut brain would be fully functional. Say, the metaphor were to be ‘Jack and Jill went up the hill’. That is a nursery rhyme, but that might do.

Then you would have a picture of Jack in the form of a ‘J’, and the first sound in the metaphor is ‘juh’. So from ‘juh’ they could get ‘J’; and then they might learn the letter ‘J’.

The thing I thought might be best is to use that technique called ‘synesthesia’. It is a technique where numbers, for instance, are associated with some other thing, like a color or sound. The person who has this skill experiences two or three of these at the same time.

I thought that skill might be developed in people with learning disabilities, so that tones might be used to represent letters. Intuitively I feel that the tones would be like music, and music is something that is picked up by the gut brain. In that way a connection might be made in a different kind of wiring setup for learning disabilities regarding reading.

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