Dear Ones,

A DREAM ABOUT TORTURING SOMEONE WHO APPEARS TO BE DIFFERENT

I woke up with another dream tonight; this time, I saw what seemed to be a good looking Puerto Rican man, dressed in black, in a dark place … my feeling was, in the woods somewhere. He said to me …

I don’t understand. They hired me as a driver. They said it was important that I speak Latin, but no one here speaks Latin. What should I do?

My higher mind said something rational to him on the clair plane, such as …

Do what you think necessary, considering the situation.

But my gut brain had another message for him … Danger! Danger! … and apparently his gut brain got that message right away.

Gosh, what a dream! There were so many people glommed to that dream, wanting to sit in and observe what might have been about to develop into a ‘torture the one who is different’ dream. Gosh.

ARTICLES ON TORTURE

Just now I did some reading on torture …

LINKS BETWEEN STREET GANGS AND THE MILITARY

Apparently there is a link between street gangs and the military …

Link: “The FBI Announces Gangs Have Infiltrated Every Branch Of The Military,” by Robert Johnson, 22 October 2011 … http://www.businessinsider.com/fbi-gang-assessment-us-military-2011-10 ..

Link: “Are Gang Members Using Military Training?” by James Klatell, CBS, 29 July 2007 …   https://www.cbsnews.com/news/are-gang-members-using-military-training/ ..

Apparently there are common ‘touch points’, or energy threads, in street gangs and the military, to do with rites of passage for young men.

If street gangs and the military have similar Soul wounding regarding torture or being tortured, for instance, and these dreams of torture flow through the consciousness of both groups, then as healers and Lightworkers we will be unable to ‘clean up’ gangland murders and mafia activities by appealing to the military, or to others who have experienced similar rites of passage. That is because, in the realms of the Dark, their Soul woundings thrill to the same Dark song, at least in this regard.

Rather, as Lightworkers, we must align with God, and seek, with neutral mind, to bring clear Awareness to the process the Divine has undertaken in clearing through the Incoming Light.

ON HARDWIRING OF PERSONAL PERIL AND NATIONAL PERIL IN THE COMBAT VETERAN

In the same way, since the military are trained to protect their country, there is a strong energy thread of protection in the military. In a situation where a military person feels threatened … as when the Incoming Light hits his body cells, causing a panic attack … the first response would be to strike back, to defend oneself. This might take the form of ‘digging in’ … even, maybe, retiring to a light-less basement or the bottom floors of a parking lot … or maybe in attacking people who talk about the changing Light, or suppressing their work, on the theory it affects national security. The short circuit being that they themselves feel insecure, and so therefore the nation may be at peril.

I see this as a result of  recruit training, and also PTSD during combat, as the act of defending the country very clearly imperils the wartime military man as well. Thus, hardwired in, is the understanding that their peril, and that of the country, go hand in hand.

Thus the inaccurate conclusion may be reached that their actions, in defending themselves from perceived peril, are justified in defense of their country. Whereas, in fact, their actions are a ‘defense mechanism’ welling up from their subconscious minds, onto which the light of conscious awareness needs must be shone.

HAZING AS A RITE OF PASSAGE IN GROUPS OF YOUNG MEN

I have  read that group initiation techniques for gang members and for boot camps may involve ‘hazing’, and that this may be a ‘rite of passage’, I note this in young male groups in three contexts: military, street gangs, and college fraternities …

Link: “Your Marine Corps: Investigations Find Hazing at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego,” by Jeff Schogol, 3 May 2017 … https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2017/05/03/investigations-find-hazing-at-marine-corps-recruit-depot-san-diego/ ..

Link: “Hazing: Why Young Men Do It,” by Benjamin Redford, Live Science Contributor, 14 May 2008 … https://www.livescience.com/2528-hazing-young-men.html ..

Apparently, this hazing is a rite of passage for young men. A test of manhood. These tests of manhood can leave scars, both in those tested, and in those that test. And also in out-group members who are the object of manhood tests …

Groups of Young Men and the Issue of PTSD

Apparently, urban violence, putatively sometimes gang-related, causes PTSD in victims of violence …

Link: “Guns: The PTSD Crisis That’s Being Ignored: Americans Wounded in Their Own Neighborhoods: Americans in violent neighborhoods are developing PTSD at rates similar to combat veterans. Why aren’t hospitals screening them? It costs money,” by Lois Beckett, 3 February 2014 … https://www.propublica.org/article/the-ptsd-crisis-thats-being-ignored-americans-wounded-in-their-own-neighbor ..

In addition, membership in street gangs apparently can cause PTSD …

Link: “Gang Membership: Links to Violence Exposure, Paranoia, PTSD, Anxiety, and Forced Control of Behavior in Prison,” by J. Wood and S. Dennard, in Psychiatry. 2017 Spring;80(1):30-41. doi: 10.1080/00332747.2016.1199185 … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28409716 ..

From my reading, there is anecdotal evidence of PTSD for military recruits, especially those who are asked to leave the military; and also to do with combat experience.

From this, I gather there are issues of PTSD for groups of young men who experience being hazed, or who haze, and for out-group members whom they may haze.

Hypotheses

Fight or Flight Response Flip Flop. In earlier blogs, I mentioned that the fight or flight response can flip flop back and forth … One moment a person is in panic mode, and the next they may turn, on the astral plane, to attack mode. I have clair heard this happen time after time on the astral plane.

Tortured or Torture Response Flip Flop. Could it also be that physical experiences of being tortured, or of torturing, might flip back and forth as well? On the physical plane, could a person who has been hazed in a rite of passage flip to ‘I will torture’ mode? Could it be that groups of young men who have been initiated through hazing might expand torture activities to include people outside the gang? Say, with planned intervals of rape or torture, as a way to reinforce camaraderie?

THERAPEUTIC SOLUTIONS

The issue, as I see it, is that acts of torture are not condoned by society. Thus, repeated acts of rape or torture may result in social sanctions, possibly even brutal social sanctions such as capital punishment.

Thus I propose that those involved in planned intervals of rape or torture seek expert help in determining the trigger points, so that they themselves can put a damper on ‘acting out’. Acting out puts a damper on Soul healing, because every instance of acting out … such as torturing a person perceived to be ‘different’ from oneself … compounds the original Soul wounding. Thus I suggest the various forms of therapy for PTSD that are available today …

Link: “Preventing Gang Violence by Offering a Community,” by Allen Fennewald, 21 December 2016 … http://youthtoday.org/2016/12/preventing-gang-violence-by-offering-a-community/ ..

Link: “Post-traumatic Stress Disorder,” from the NIH: National Institute of Mental Health …  https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/post-traumatic-stress-disorder-ptsd/index.shtml ..

Headway made through therapy clears the way for the process of Soul healing through the Incoming Light can be expedited.

I also feel it might be good for each group of young men to consider what would be the optimum test of manhood within the context of that group, taking into consideration the issues of PTSD and the future need for adjustment to mainstream life as they mature and have families of their own.

Well, that is all I have for now on this very difficult topic.

In love, light and joy,

Dear Ones,

This blog is in three parts: The revised blog, the rough draft video, and the Summary of the rough draft video. I feel that the revised blog is much more polished than the rough draft  …

REVISED BLOG

MALE DEFENSE MECHANISM TO DO WITH SEXUAL AGGRESSION BY ANOTHER MAN

This video is about a defense mechanism I have been logging onto on the clair plane. It is a mechanism that men use to prevent anxiety rising up when they think of the threat offered by the sexually aggressive drive of another man. Perception of possible territorial aggression will increase the tendency to employ this defense mechanism.

This has to do, in this instance, with a single woman living near a married man. The man feels an urge to territorial aggression, a sort of overflowing of ”mine-ness’ from his own perceived territory to that of the woman; this, I believe typically, includes fantasies of rape, which are another form of aggression … sexual aggression … generally repressed in the deep subconscious mind.

When the single woman thinks of a man, a stranger, the nearby man says, on the deep subconscious plane: And now I will be … [this stranger]. Then on the clair hearing plane, the nearby man begins to speak ‘in the voice of’ the stranger.

The reward, for the nearby man, is that he begins to sound, on the clair hearing plane, like the man who is a stranger, but in fact his ego continues to talk to the single woman, and he has tricked her into thinking she is still talking to the stranger.

CLAIR VENTING OF EMOTIONS OCCASIONED BY THREAT OF MALE SEXUAL AGGRESSION

Because of the nature of this defense mechanism (which is based on perceived threat of sexual aggression by a territorially encroaching male), after a few minutes of conversation it becomes obvious to the single woman that the emotional content of this conversation is always the same, and is always based on the defense mechanism of the nearby man.

Typically the single woman will begin to hear that the nearby man does not like her. The tenor of the clair conversation is undercutting and derisive; there are emotional threads of anxiousness and concealed aggression. There has been a displacement of the feeling of being threatened by the male stranger, to a feeling of being threatened by the single woman. I see this as venting.

WOMAN IN THE MIDDLE: AVOIDANCE OF MALE SEXUAL AGGRESSION BY SHARING ONE’S WOMAN; SUBCONSCIOUS VENTING ON WOMEN

This segue into the persona of another man on the clair plane, described above, followed by venting of threat anxiety against a woman, I have also heard expressed as the following daydream: The actors are two men and a woman. The first man perceives himself as being less powerful than the second man, whom he admires for his physical prowess. The first man is in relationship with the woman. The second man is bisexual.

The daydream is for the first man to invite the second man to have rectal intercourse with the woman, while the first man pleases her with oral clitoral stimulation.

The conscious motive of the first man is: He knows men act cruelly toward women, and he wants to make it better for the women. The subconscious motive is to mitigate the threat of aggression by the second man; this motive arises out of low self-esteem, to do with early childhood wounding by his father.

The conscious motive of the second man is: To bring that woman down to Earth. The unconscious motive is to degrade her; this motive arises out of misogyny, to do with early childhood wounding by his mother.

The conscious motive for the woman is: To stay in relationship with the first man. Her unconscious motive has to do with low self-esteem (which is the shadow of the reason for her bonding with the first man); this low self-esteem has to do with being put ‘in her place’ by both her father and her mother in childhood.

In sum, the above daydream is, for the first man, a more concrete visualization of the venting described in the prior instance.

MITIGATION OF THE THREAT OF MALE AGGRESSION THROUGH HOMOSEXUAL DAYDREAMS

In addition, there is a tendency, clair audible, to mitigate the threat of a male stranger’s aggression into the egoic energy of the nearby man by acting it out in a homosexual daydream scenario. My hypothesis about this is, that the one man, the nearby man, feels threatened by the presence of other men. In his daydreaming, and possibly also in night dreams, he dreams he is having intercourse with other men.

SYMBOLIC ACTS OF SEX EXPRESSING MALE DOMINANCE

Unconscious Acts of Sexual Dominance Among Hamadryas Baboons

This reminds me of my observations of the hamadryas baboon some time ago, where the alpha male of a baboon troupe would have symbolic acts of intercourse with both the juvenile males and all the females in the pack in the early morning (in the San Diego Zoo). The symbolism was that the alpha male was acting out and reinforcing the notion of dominance.

Conscious Acts of Sexual Dominance by the Leader of a Human Killing Cult

This is the same behavior I have observed on the clair plane with regard to a human killing cult  … For more on this, search my blog category: Crime families – cults that kill – outlaw gangs – street gangs

In the instance of the human pack, however, the rational mind of the alpha male devised this method of acting out dominance based on his understanding of the subconscious feral instincts of the cult members he wished to mind control. He also used genital mutilation and/or murder of male followers and murder of female members as an expression of dominance, with intent to solidify his leadership position …

For more on this, search my blog categories: Genital mutilation – castration  … and …  Dominance – submission (and its subcategories)

Normal Males: Unconscious Acts of Sexual Submission during the Awakening

My feeling is, in the case in question, the nearby man feels threatened by the presence of other men. He dreams that he is having intercourse with other men. This threat-mitigating homosexual behavior might express itself when a man perceives himself to be inferior in strength or power to other men.

Astral Rape Gangs. In these times of the Awakening, when there was, until recently, so much energy in the world of men marauding on the astral plane, descending en masse and raping one woman or one man at a time, non-participating men may feel threatened by their aggressive instinct.

Until recently, the astral rape gang activity was happening, over and over again, all over Earth, especially on the weekends; there would have been, among men, a subconscious threat-mitigation incentive, an incentive for non-participating men to join the marauding male groups (who, I clair find, are members of their social groups in the physical realm), so as to avoid being raped themselves.

So maybe this is what latent homosexuality is: The daydreaming of acts of sexuality with male friends and acquaintances so as to mitigate threat of aggression.

For more on this, search my blog category: Psychic rape – ADULTS ONLY

PRE-SHIFT SUBCONSCIOUS REPRESSION OF MALE TERRITORIAL AND SEXUAL AGGRESSION

It could be that modern society prohibits expression of male territorial aggression, and advocates male continence, and so these drives have been repressed onto the subconscious astral plane (the shadow of the personality).

The rape gang daydreams and the homosexual daydreams, as well as male misogyny daydreams I have talked about previously, may have been circulating in the astral realm all along. But only just now, because of the Shift, people may be rising to conscious Awareness of them.

THE CLEARING OF HUMAN AND ANIMAL ENERGIES OF AGGRESSION NOW TAKING PLACE

From a galactic standpoint, I could characterize these waves of noospheric energy that have been happening … the astral rape gangs, the switching of the persona that a man may feel as he segues into the persona of another man, and the daydreamed acts of homosexuality … as waves of clearing the aggressive drive and the more primitive expression of the sexual drive from the world.

We have to keep in mind that it is not just human aggression and the human sexual drive that we are clearing. But also, through our energetic forms, the aggressive and sexual instincts of all the animals on Earth are clearing. So there is quite a job to do.

THE OUTLOOK: GREATER INTIMACY, MORE FULFILLING FRIENDSHIPS AS THE ILLUSION CLEARS

As these energies clear, it is going to be possible for men and women to relate more closely and more intimately together. Because of the anxieties provoked by the Awakening process, men and women have drawn apart. Even long-married couples have drawn apart, into a more meditative state, so that their clearing can take place.

But now, as these denser energies clear Earth, it is going to be possible for men and women to begin to relate together much more closely than they have done in the past. I foresee an increase in bonding amongst men and women, and in bonding amongst friends, in the next few years, in a stance that i’s far less deluded, far more based on the true nature of things. I am looking forward to that.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have some interesting notions about psychology, based on the clair input that I have been receiving lately, which I had found very puzzling.

When I was in college long years ago, I had a minor in psychology. But I have to say I do not recall ever studying the topic I am about to discuss. I am just piecing together information based on the clair stories I have been hearing, and on the clair visualizations that I have been getting … the clairvoyance I have.

For a long time now I have been hearing a man who, whenever I start thinking about a man … I think he has a subconscious defense mechanism … I used to find this very upsetting, because it means I cannot think about a man without him trying to interlope into it, you know? But when you think of it as a defense mechanism it starts to make sense as a subconscious tool to prevent anxiety from the feeling that a man may have when he thinks of competition from or the aggressive drive of another man. You see? So then the mind can become more neutral about what is going on … my mind, that is. [laughs]

So to get back to that, what has been happening is, whenever I think of a man other than this man, his subconscious mind moves into the idea that he is that other man, and begins to talk to me.

There is a subconscious tool that has been taking place because of the long Age of Darkness. It goes like this: And now I will be … [so-and-so; this person]
Or: Now I will be … [this person]

Typically what happens is it is very, very sotto voce … it is the deep subconscious in which this happens. It is an automatic response. And immediately, to me, that person sounds like somebody else … the other person.

The reward, for the person that is employing this subconscious subterfuge, is that they begin to sound like the person that I wanted to talk to, and they continue to talk to me … their ego continues to talk to me. And I think that I am talking to this other person. After a minute or two, though, it becomes very obvious that a switch has occurred.

Because of the nature of this defense mechanism, the emotional language of the conversation that ensues always is the same, and always is based on the Soul wounding of the first person. Typically what I begin to hear is that this second person does not like me. This second person has snide things to say about me. In real life this never happens, but whenever this seguing into the other persona occurs, from the man in question it happens.

It always expresses feelings of anxiousness and a kind of concealed aggression. The aggression is taking place towards me. So there has been a displacement of the feeling of being threatened that the first man had, by using the persona of the second male to vent that aggressive feeling on me the woman.

In addition there is a tendency on the psychic plane … and perhaps in acting out in the real world … to act out a desire to mitigate the threat of another man’s aggression into the egoic energy of the first man by acting it out in a homosexual scenario.

So in this case … this is my hypothesis about this … one man feels threatened by the presence of other men. So in his daydreaming … or maybe at night in his dreaming … he dreams that he is having intercourse with other men.

This brings me back to some time that I spent in the San Diego Zoo many years ago, early in the morning, checking out the behavior of the animals there … and I am reminded, in particular, of observation of the hamadryas baboon, which helped me towards an understanding of pack behavior and feral instincts.

The only pertinent thing that I have to say is that the dominant male in a troupe of hamadryas baboons would have symbolic intercourse with both the juvenile males and all the females in that group. That was his way of expressing dominance.

This behavior … kind of a threat mitigating behavior … by someone who perceives himself as a human to be inferior in strength or power to other men, might be expressed in the same way: As a homosexual act of threat mitigation.

I do not know what you all will think of this. Those of you who have the psychological and psychiatric experience that I lack: I do not know how you are going to react to this notion.

In these times of the Awakening … when there was recently so much of that threat energy in the world, of groups of men marauding on the astral plane, and descending en masse and raping one woman at a time … I think that men would feel threatened by that, because it happened over and over again, especially on the weekends. All over Earth it was happening.

And so there would be an incentive, a subconscious threat mitigation incentive, for men to join that group so as to avoid the possibility of being raped themselves, you know? Even on the astral plane, it is a pretty daunting notion.

And further, I think these daydreamed-up homosexual scenarios that I have noticed, till recently, on the astral plane, have the same purpose … amongst men who know each other … to mitigate the aggressive drive through a symbolic act of sex on the astral plane. So maybe that is what latent homosexuality is … the daydreaming of that act for this purpose; it is possible.

Now from a wider standpoint … from a more galactic standpoint … I could characterize these waves of noospheric energy that have been happening … the astral rape gangs; the switching of the persona that a man may feel segueing into the persona of another man; and the daydreamed acts of latent sexuality … as waves of clearing of the aggressive drive and the more primitive expression of the sexual drive from the world.

We have to keep in mind that it is not just human aggression and the human sexual drive that we are clearing; but also, through our energetic forms the aggressive and sexual instincts of all the animals on Earth are also clearing. So there is quite a job to do.

And as these energies clear, it is going to be possible for men and women to relate more closely and more intimately together … as what has been happening because of the anxieties provoked by the Ascension and Awakening process is that men and women have drawn apart. Even long-married couples have drawn apart, into a more meditative place, so that their clearing can take place.

But now, as these denser energies clear Earth, it is going to be possible for men and women to relate together much more closely than they have done in the past. I foresee an increase in bonding … in closeness … amongst men and women … in the coming years, for the next two years.

There are those of us that have been doing an awful lot of clearing; and have found that, because our energies were so involved in the transformational process, it is very difficult for us to be closely bonded to other people … because other people transform at different times. So they are going through a transformation process two days later than us … or two days in advance of us.

Whenever transformation takes place, ‘the fur flies’, you know! The fur is always flying somewhere, when we have friends! I am hoping that … as the fur flies less … as the transformation becomes a little more mild … that people in general will be able to relate more closely together; not just bonding of couples, but bonding of friends … and like that … in a new stance for humankind that is far less deluded, far more based on the true nature of things. I am looking forward to that.

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