SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO … ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: THE DARK LOVE TRIANGLE
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.
About Red Rock Canyon
Well, I am out here in the wilderness. There is a far distant view; far off in the distance … you cannot see it … down in the mountains, there is Red Rock Canyon. Nobody really knows about Red Rock Canyon except a few people. To get there, you have to go through a mountain pass, to an old, deserted campground, which, I think, was really very nice at one time.
And it is really too bad that it is not there anymore. I mean, the spaces are there, and all, but the facilities are no longer there. It would be great if they could get it going again, because Red Rock Canyon is a beautiful place for people to visit, and families to enjoy.
So anyway, off in the far distance [pans to viewer’s left] is the entrance to it. And so, I am here now, and I have something to talk to you all about. It involves pulling together so many strands of energy! It really has to do with blaming people, and feeling vengeance towards people, and being able to forgive people. and daydreaming and fantasizing with a recurrent fantasy … and how these affect the timeline that we are in. That is really my emphasis, and I am hoping that whatever, by way of example, I put in, from my personal experience, will have a kind of a neutral flavor to it, so as to offer, by way of illustration, an example for the reader.
Beginning of the Story: A Great Flash of Light!
I will start at the beginning. (I am still considering what to say.) Maybe 14 or 15 years ago, I was in the midst of breaking up with my boyfriend, and I suddenly found myself in a kind of a fantasy world Love Triangle that involved two women … I was one of the women … and the man.
The interesting thing is: Of the other two people, I had barely met the man … I shook hands with him once. And I had not actually, formally, met the woman at all.
I was sitting in meditation one day, and the two of them were in the room, behind me. And something happened on the astral plane. There was a great flash of light!
At the time, I was thinking to myself how great it would be to have a spiritual companion that I could relate to, in the spiritual realm, and kind of lift myself up, step by step, and help them do the same. That was my thought at the time, while I was meditating.
And there was this great flash of light, that went from the eyes of a portrait of the group’s guru, on the front wall of the meditation room, through my heart, and into the front of the heart chakra of someone else, who was sitting behind me.
I turned round, and looked, and it was this one person, whom I had never met. I did not know his name; I did not know a thing about him. The man stood half-way up, as if stunned, and then sat back down again. And so then there was established a telepathic link … one that was always present, and consisted mainly of subconscious input, and which I was unable to break or set aside, for many years.
As it turned out, he had a relationship with a woman, and the woman and he had a telepathic link. Later, I went to knock on the door of the office where he worked; I went to see if I could find this person; and she came to the door. She did not give her name, but I just had a feeling about it …
The Karmic Trap: Glued Like a Fly to Psychic Flypaper
The feeling that I got, several times, when I was in that situation, was a Karmic Trap was about to be set. And that it would be foolhardy for me to walk forward, into a certain situation, physically (i.e., walk forward with my feet).
And I remember overriding that. It was as if a guardian angel had whispered in my ear and said: Don’t go there! Don’t do that!
The first time that happened, at that place where I meditated, I turned around and walked away. Years went by. And then I thought: Geez, maybe I will try that again. Why not? I will go on over there. Probably, I was mistaken.
And I went back, and I had the same feeling of foreboding. But nevertheless, I started going over and meditating at that place. And this thing that I just now talked to you about, was the thing that unfolded because of that.
So anyway, I had actually seen the faces of two people on the physical plane, and suddenly, a fantasy world asserted itself. In that fantasy world, she and he were attracted to each other sexually, and my heart chakra’s energy was pulled towards his, in the way of a woman yearning for the presence of a man; and her heart chakra energy was pulled towards me, in the way of an alpha female despising and ‘lording it over’ a beta female; and his heart chakra energy was pulled towards her, in the way of a man yearning for the presence of a woman.
I, who had never before experienced one telepathic thought, was mind-melded, 24-7, to two people who had what seemed to me to be incomprehensibly vast telepathic abilities. I was stuck, like a fly to flypaper, in an astral Dark Love Triangle.

Dark Love Triangle (Triangle Amoureaux)
So it was a circular situation … a Dark Love Triangle or triangle amoureux … in which nobody could be satisfied, because what they were looking at, and what they were longing for, was not what was looking at and longing for them.
So that was the Karmic Trap that I found myself in, on the astral plane. The other two people married, but they ended up unhappy in regard to romantic love. I feel this may have been because of the turmoil stirred up by the astral Dark Love Triangle.
Adding to the turmoil was a fractal replication of the Dark Love Triangle, in which it seemd to me that my ex-boyfriend aligned, in his fantasy world, with another alpha female. It seemed to me that he also may have become psychic on the astral plane. I surmised that, to cover his new romantic interest, or possibly subconsciously, on the psychic plane he called himself and his alpha female by the names of the couple in the original Dark Love Triangle. So I could not tell the two love triangles apart, on the astral plane.
To further complicate the issue, on the astral plane, the men in both Triangles, who were deeply romantically attracted to the alpha female in their Triangle, attributed my loving heart feelings towards what I thought to be just one man, to the alpha female in their personal Triangle, and mistakenly assigned the power-over, hateful feelings their alpha females felt toward me as hateful feelings I felt toward them.
So the men both felt I hated them, and that their alpha woman loved them, and that she was right in feeling they should send hateful vibes to me on the psychic plane.
And this went on for a space of about 15 years, with the rancor felt by the alpha females towards me increasing to such a crescendo that I feared for my life, as friends, family and acquaintances of everyone involved were drawn in, on the astral plane, to this recurring daydream.
Very slowly, for everyone involved, the skein of the Karmic Trap slowly emerged to my conscious mind. But for a long time, I was deeply subconscious with this, and not understanding what was going on.
About four years later, on the clairaudient plane, one of the men … at the time I thought it was the man in the first Triangle … came to me and said: Just wanted to let you know this is the end of this, and there will be no more of it from me. Please don’t ever think of me again, and please don’t ever relate to me again.
On Escaping from a Fantasy
That was 10 or 11 years ago. And so, I tried very hard, never to relate to him again. As you may know, when a person has a fantasy about something, it takes a while … even with strict application and discipline of the mind … It takes a while .. at least 6 months, and maybe longer … to escape from that fantasy world because, in addition to monitoring the thoughts of the conscious mind, we have also to consider the buildup of emotions and subconscious thoughts that has taken place during the time that we dwelt on something.
As Bill Ballard … Pearls2U on youtube, https://www.youtube.com/user/pearls2u ... would say, we have to wait patiently until the electromagnetic disperse.
So that was going on for me, for a while, the problem being that, as time went on, it seemed some element of negativity was introduced into the relationship of the other two people (in each triangle, as I discovered later) … who I had heard, from one of the women that I knew, were romantically involved, or else married. So, at the point where I heard that … at the very beginning … I immediately knew that I should stay out of the situation, and let them proceed with their romantic life together … which is what I did, all those years.
So but what I am dealing with, through this whole interval, is a clearing of subconscious tendencies on my part, and a clarification of my emotional body, and like that. So it was not for naught. But for me, that whole experience of fantasy that took place for four years was very painful. There was a lot of suffering in it, as Thich Nhat Hanh … https://plumvillage.org/about/thich-nhat-hanh/ … would say.
There was a lot of compassion that I could have felt for myself, that I did not feel. And so, as I slowly emerged from that miasma of fantasy, I began to understand my own heart, and how deserving it was of love, and how I need to stand in the reality of the Third Dimension, and deal with life on Earth, instead of imagining that things are different from the way that they are, if you know what I mean. So I had that positive result from that.
Vast Electromagnetics and Solar Flares in the Early Years
Meantime, some electromagnetics were happening … vast swoopings about of EMF energy such as I had never experienced before. At the time, I did not know what to make of them, although later I pegged them to the many Solar Flares in those early years, and to my greatly enhanced EMF sensitivity, approximately coincident with the time of the flash of Light described above.
Early Attempt to Speak with the Man Thought to Be Part of the Telepathic Dark Love Triangle
I made an attempt, earlier on, to get in touch with the man on the physical plane, to talk with him and sort out what was going on, on the astral plane. I was asked to go to that place, to speak with a man I did not know. When I arrived, I asked if I might speak with the gentleman in the Triangle, perhaps with someone else present. On the basis of nothing I could think of … no act or feeling of mine … he replied that he thought I ought to seek psychiatry.
I could not make heads or tails of this, as I was actively involved in the congregation at the time … on the visitor welcome committee, involved in food preparation for after services, participating in the meditations, and one of the leaders of a women’s inspirational group that met monthly there.
In that context, the advise of the strange gentleman did not make sense to me. Would it not be best to speak, in person, with the people that were constantly talking with me on the astral plane? In that way, I felt, the misaligned emotions of this ill-fated and very painful astral Love Triangle might be sorted out, might it not? But as fate would have it, this was never to be.
The Email Out of the Blue
Out of the blue, I got an email one time … some time after the first four years … purportedly from the man in the first Triad, or Love Triangle, stating that he and his wife were getting a divorce.
Since I did not know the couple, except in my fantasies and clairaudient thoughts, I did not know whether that was true or not … whether they were married, whether they had gotten a divorce, and like that. So I wrote back and I said (because he was a minister, and his wife was also spiritually inclined) … because I had moved into a new place, I said: If you would like to come over, and bless this house, I will have a gathering sometime, and you could do that.
And I never heard back from them about that. And so I was once again wondering what was really true, and what was not true.
I am sure you all have been in similar situations: Imagining things, and daydreaming, and sometimes wishing for something that is not so. You know what I mean?
Psychic Warfare, Projected Feeling of Blame, or Vengefulness
In the meantime, on the psychic plane, there was warfare going on between this man and, assumedly, his wife. A furious battle was being waged. It was like they were going through immense suffering. And finally, apparently, they broke up.
And after that, I found out that the man (or possibly the man in the fractal Triangle) had a tendency to hold onto what he felt were wrongs that had been done to him … kind of a vengeful streak; in other words, a habit of feeling like punching another person for doing something to them … that kind of feeling.
And that tendency would come up, every once in a while. And every time it came up for him, he would blame me, rather than her. Which was weird, because I did not even know them.
On Psychological ‘Projection’
In psychology, this process of ‘substitute blaming’ is called ‘projection’.
- The benefit is, we avoid confronting the person we are really upset with, and so we will not chance losing their love.
- On the other hand, because we never confront the situation, the situation is never resolved.
On Magnetic Reconnection of Timelines Through Subconscious Fantasizing
That is the way it went. He would blame me, in his fantasy world, and it would all come back again. It was like the timeline that was going on for me, had diverged from theirs. But when he blamed me, it is like the timelines for the three of us pulled back together … kachoomed back together, and like that! … and all the old pain and suffering was experienced again.
This photo of a magnetic crack in the EMF of Earth is like the temporary swooping together (merging, or glomming) of timelines because of a shared experience of Soul wounding …

On Being Fantasized About as the Sexual Object of a Dominatrix
And so, during that whole time after their divorce … I do not know how long it was, maybe since about 8 years ago? … In her mind, it seemed to me that the woman was still fantasizing that I was her sexual partner, in a power-over or dominatrix way. Now, it was a total fantasy. I know, in her heart of hearts, she knows that. But still, the fantasizing goes on, day after day.
And what happens, when we fantasize about a real-life person is, that we pull their timeline in towards ours … so that whatever suffering they are experiencing (if we are empathic), we experience that suffering too.
On Co-Creating a Positive New Reality Through Visualization
That is why it is important to visualize things together with someone else that we know in real life through free will. So that is a very important aspect of co-creating the new reality through visualization …
- We need to be very concrete.
- We need to work with other people in harmony with their hearts.
- And we need to honor other people’s free will.
Recurring Daydreams Put Timeline on ‘Pause’
So in this case, what I have been feeling, all these years, is that someone is fantasizing about me. I do not know why. I do not know what the prior incarnations were. I do not know what the other timelines are. I do not know what other dimensions are involved.
All I know is that the electromagnetics are such that I keep getting pulled back into her timeline because of her fantasy world.
And so for me, what I have learned from that is that, what a fantasy does is: It kind of stops the forward motion of a timeline. An unfulfilled fantasy, a recurrent daydream like that, stops a timeline. And … because of the activity of the mental mind … it sticks the person to that timeline …
- Making it impossible for them to switch timelines easily.
- Making it impossible for them to jump from one dimension to the next,
- Or to bilocate, or trilocate, or any of the other cool tricks that we are practicing now, during the Ascension process.
Alice’s Vision of a Ghost Haunting the Mesmerized Dominatrix
I just recently found, in a moment of clairvoyance, that the woman in one of the Triangles has been stepping right up to me, nose to nose, as it were, in 4D several times a day. Mesmerized, or sound asleep, it seemed.
Then, as her timeline stopped, it felt to me like an A-V chip was playing across her third-eye point. This reminded me of the way that ghosts who ‘haunt’ keep replaying an A-V chip over and over.
Then I found she was being haunted by a woman who knew her as a baby, and who has since passed. Then on the clairaudient plane, I brought her conscious attention to all this, and asked her to send the ghost to its guides, and to the Light. Which she has done, and the episode, albeit long drawn out, has found its end.
The takeaway is that recurrent fantasies may involve the persistent presence of ghosts, and that we must take steps such as the above.
Why Ascensioneers Are Daydreaming Less
So that may be why a lot of the daydreaming for me has stopped, over the years. I very rarely daydream. Very, very seldom do I daydream, and then only for a split second. And I would be surprised if other people were not experiencing this same thing.
Daydreaming stops us from being multidimensional. It sticks us at a particular place in a timeline. Every time we day dream, we get stuck again, back in the place where we started the daydream.
It is kind of a painful process, because it does not allow that joy, and that freedom … that flow of the Now … you know? It is a hard process to be going through. And I have great compassion for those people who are doing that, because of my own prior experience along those lines.
The Blame Game Time Warp
Now, back to the Triad or Love Triangle. I am going to talk about Blame, because last night I did this one; this timeline faux pas happened last night. I sat in meditation, at a time when another spiritual group that I used to be involved with in Los Angeles was also sitting in meditation.
Just prior to that, I had had to leave Los Angeles, actually, because I did not want to get too drawn into their electromagnetic field during all the clearing that is taking place on Earth right now. I am very sensitive to that kind of thing. So I left town. I could still feel them. And there was a lot of turmoil going on over there. It was amazing; it was like the ethers were being churned. There was all this clairaudient upset … just a lot of stuff.
So I went for a walk in the mountains. And it continued, even up high in the mountains. So finally I came back to the place where I was staying. And I was sitting in meditation. And I started to dwell on all the things that had really upset me during this imaginary Love Triangle 11 years ago, and for that 10-year interval long ago.
And I started with a grudge thing; I started enumerating all the things that I was really aggravated about back then. And suddenly, I found the other two people, on the astral plane, right next to me.
And I found myself in the same grievous boat of suffering that I had been experiencing … the deep agony that I had been experiencing. It was incredible! And not only that, but because I had started blaming them, they felt defensive.
And the man was wanting to take revenge on me, and injure me. And the woman was feeling increasingly erotic, and she was wanting to make love to me. And so there we were again, right back in the same, totally dissatisfied, upset, disgruntled, angry boat, you know?
And so I went: Wait a minute! How did this happen? What has happened here?
And my mind went through these scenarios: Maybe it is this! Maybe it is that! You know?
And then I remembered Matt Kahn … “True Divine Nature,” http://www.truedivinenature.com/ … He and his wife are wonderful people. And they have been saying lately (to paraphrase): Feel compassion. Feel love and forgiveness. And never blame anyone, no matter what they are doing. Don’t blame them. Just accept them the way they are.
And then, I had been doing some timeline research, recently, and discoveries, and so forth. And so, I put the two together, and I went: Oh my gosh! I was blaming them. I was refusing to forgive these two people. And look what happened! My timeline, which had been diverging from theirs, looped directly back to the beginning 14 years ago, and then it looped back and forth through all the upsets that had happened in an injurious, Soul-wounded relationship with them. It is like all it did was loop, loop, loop. And so, I did that to myself!
And I feel that maybe what Matt Kahn and Thich Nhat Hahn are saying, when they say to feel compassion for the suffering of other people …
- They are not just saying, out of the goodness of my own heart, I should do that,
- But for the goodness of my own heart, I should do that.
… because otherwise, there I am, stuck in a Time Warp!
- I cannot multidime (experience multidiimensionality) …
- I cannot optimize my timelines.
- I cannot optimize my dimensional awareness.
- All I can do is go back and forth, over an injured emotion that I felt a long time ago, on one of my timelines, because of Soul wounding.
Conclusion of Alice’s Perilous Tale
So, I just thought you all might like to know what I discovered about …
- Daydreaming, which stops the timeline, prevents multidimensionality,
- and about the feeling of Vengeance, which also turns the timeline back to the Soul wounding that was experienced ‘back in the day’
- and also about Blame, and lack of Forgiveness, which are very similar to that, and do the same thing: They cause a time loop, they prevent multidimensionality, and more importantly, they prevent me from feeling my own heart.
So I am taking all that to heart, from now on. Every time I start to feel any of the above, I am going to do my best to forgive and forget, and feel compassion for the suffering of other people.
Wish me luck! And good luck to all of you too.

UNCONSCIOUS GLOMMING TO RECURRENT DAYDREAMS (I.E., VIVID WAKING DREAMS OR FUGUE STATES) AND NIGHT DREAMS, ESPECIALLY IN LARGE CITIES
My viewpoint toward the storyline of this fantasy has changed quite a lot over time. Right now it represents a complex fabric of unconscious glomming (see the category by that name), and not just by triads of people, but by very many. Rising to my consciousness right now is a many-layered dreamscape of folks glomming to recurrent daydreams (called by some vivid waking dreams or fugue states ) and night dreams, especially in the large cities.
On the astral plane, this sort of glomming daydream sometimes feels like temporary merging of two or more astral bodies. Or even, displacement of one person’s astral form by that of another person.
HOW THESE DAYDREAMS SEEM TO AUTISTIC PEOPLE
For instance, in the case of autistic people, who have less than the usual amount of identity attachment to the physical form, daydreams of other people seem (from my clair perspective) to ‘walk right into’ the autistic person’s mental and emotional bodies, as the astral forms of other people, one by one, displace the autistic person’s astral body, and daydream or ‘act out’ a recurrent fantasy in that body….
I asked an autistic person once, where it goes when this happens. This very sweet soul replied, “I go back to God.” What wonderful people these are, and what wonderful gifts they will have for humankind, in the way of expanded awareness, after humankind has received just a little more of the incoming light!
HOW THE INCOMING LIGHT IS BRINGING THESE PREVIOUSLY UNCONSCIOUS DREAMS OF HUMANKIND TO CONSCIOUS AWARENESS
So now to get back on topic, it seems to me that the incoming light, slowly but surely, is allowing all humankind to consciously recognize these unconscious threads of energy, these daydreams and nightdreams, and through this awareness, to triumph over them once and for all.
DREAMING TOGETHER (I.E., TEMPORARY MERGING OF SUBTLE BODIES) WILL SOON BE CONSCIOUS
Then at that point, when all the keys are offered us, and all the doors are unlocked, the mergings of astral or light bodies that take place will be more like those experienced in 5D, which is to say, completely aware, vividly conscious in every quark, and full of love and joy.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
