Affirmation to Heal a Manhood Curse . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 10 March 2018

Dear Ones,

Last night, in the dream world, I heard the following Manhood Curse …

May your loins be filled with despair, God damn it all!

To reverse this, I offer the following ‘reverse engineering’ blessing …

May your loins be filled with joy, by God’s grace! Now and forever! Amen

I suggest saying this affirmation whenever a sense of despair is felt, especially on a Friday night or a Saturday night, when all the world frolics.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem “If,” and a story about my Latin teacher …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I had a poem to read for you, called “If–“, by Rudyard Kipling. And I had a quick story to tell you about it before I speak the poem …

Alice’s High School Story

When I was in high school, I was in a Latin class, and the teacher there used to make us memorize a portion of this poem. And when things got rough in class, she would take her ruler, and she would wave it in the air, and she would recite part of the poem “If–“, by Rudyard Kipling. [laughs]

She was a pretty cool lady. She taught me a lot of Latin. And right before she was going on a trip to Italy, she taught us all Italian for a couple of weeks, just to get ready. [laughs] We didn’t learn much Italian, but we learned a lot of Latin.

And with that in mind, here’s the poem:

“IF–“
by Rudyard Kipling … public domain (1)

“If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

“If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

“If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

“If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!”

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I would like to talk a little about the woes caused by belief in causality … especially the notion that our woes, and our mis-steps, and our ‘trespasses’ are caused by other people.

Placing Blame Is Characteristic of the Criminal Mind and the Antisocial Personality

In the reading that I have done, I have found that the notion that what I do is caused by other people is characteristic of the criminal mind and of the antisocial personality. That got me to thinking about why this is so. And the answer is that, when we take sole responsibility for our actions, then that presupposes that we have equal ability to change our actions. We have free will.

So it is very beneficial to us … to our freedom to act in the world, and to work out our karmas, and to liberate our Souls … to believe that we are the cause of our actions. And in that way we separate ourselves from the energy streams of the criminal mind and and the antisocial personality.

The notion that someone else is responsible for our actions leads to all kinds of complications. For instance, say I am the head of a spiritual group (which I am not). And I say that the reason I have a certain energy pattern is that one of my students has that energy pattern, and transferred it to me. And so I say to my group: If we get rid of that person, then that energy pattern will be gone.

………………..
Sidebar: Astral Story about Genital Mutilation to ‘Steal Back Manhood’

I have heard an astral story that illustrates this theme, to do with a spiritual teacher who went through a time of erectile dysfunction (ED), possibly because of a stage in the Ascension process. Then according to the story, he placed the blame for his physical difficulty on one of his students, who was virile, the notion being that it was the student’s fault that the teacher had ED. This might be interpreted, in a subconscious context, as the magical thought that the virile student had ‘stolen’ the teacher’s manhood.

So then, according to the astral story, the teacher got another student to help him cut off the tip of the ‘scapegoat’ man’s penis, which the teacher swallowed; the magical notion being that the teacher was stealing his manhood back from the student whom he genitally mutilated. Here is another astral example of blaming someone else for an energetic issue that might better be self-directed.

………………..

The Extreme Instance of Placing Blame in the Context of Cults that Kill and Outlaw Gangs

In the very extreme case of cults that kill and outlaw gangs …

Link: “Community Health: Cults That Kill and Outlaw Gangs,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 7 December 2015; revised … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-4pb ..

Link: “More on Killing Cults and Outlaw Gangs,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 13 August 2016; revised on 24 February 2019 and 3 March 2019 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-61D ..

… in the very extreme case of a Charles Manson type of cult, then the leader of the cult or gang says to his members: Kill that person! Then everything will be ok, because they’re the cause of our problems. Something happens:

  • Either there’s an accident, through mental suggestion … say, a fatal traffic accident,
  • Or someone actually goes out and kills that person, and so that person is gone.

But within a week, the energy pattern reasserts itself, through the person who is the spiritual teacher or guru of the killing group … a person like Charles Manson. For instance, a pattern of psychic rape is happening. So then he says: No, it wasn’t that person; it’s another person. And another person is sacrificed for the sake of the group. So this leads to extreme suffering for the people in the group.

Were the leader to look at the situation aright, he would look for that pattern of energy in himself that’s causing him to attract the energies of the group to do with psychic rape.

How Sex Worker Samskaras Are Reflected in a Spiritual Group

For instance, a teacher that frequents sex workers, and has done so all his life, what does that mean to his spiritual group? It means that all the samskaras of all of the johns of all the sex workers that he frequents become a part of the samskaras of the group.

And so, very naturally, there will be strong energies of deviant sexual behaviors happening in that group; for instance, psychic rape, physical rape, sadomasochism (S&M). There will be problems with snuff: with murdering people for a sexual thrill. There will be all kinds of problems because the people that he frequents, and mixes his energy field (his astral matter) with, will have encountered people like that. Thus, like catching the flu, they would have those samskaras in their own auras.

Group Energies of Psychic Rape. So, if that unusual circumstance were to occur, that a group was experiencing and transmitting energies of psychic rape, and broadcasting them in the noosphere, then I would ask that teacher to look at his own behavior, purify and sanctify that which he is. And then the energy of the group will be changed and uplifted.

If he has in his group sex workers, he can expect the energy of the group to express that profession. If he has in his group con artists, he can expect the energy of the group to include the samskaras that people accumulate when they find themselves in prison. These are many, and very deep and heavy samskaras.

Consider Stepping Out of Group Activities for Now

So I ask, please think about whom you’re associating with. If you’re a member of such a group, why not step out, and breathe the wholesome, natural air of the mountains, or the seashore, or the desert? And forget about groups for now. Because it’s only by being with God, and God alone, that we will purify and sanctify and uplift our own energy fields right now, at this time of glorious renewal and awakening.

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

Dear Ones,

Here’s a video about all kinds of consternational things, including pencils, war, manhood, and womanhood. Also, reprogramming the subconscious mind and vital body when their Rules of Life don’t suit us all that well. There is an Outline after the video, followed by an edited Summary of the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

OUTLINE OF THE VIDEO

  • Pencils! Oh no! The Story of the Consternational Pencil
    • Story about my father, who was an architect, his drafting table, and the horrifying story he told me about the dangers of having No. 2 pencils that are sharpened at both ends so as to save time in drafting
  • The Rules of Life
    • How I tried to formulate the Rules of Life and the Laws of the Universe in early childhood
  • Sleep Is a Dangerous Thing!
    • How my father’s pencil story resulted in this rule: It’s dangerous to fall asleep. Maybe it would be better to stay awake all the time, or I might die!
  • Pencils Are Dangerous!
    • This rule proved to be false in a physical sense (although I found it useful in the context of seeking enlightenment. So then I formulated this rule: Pencils are dangerous! This sunk into my subconscious mind permanently. Even today, I prefer pens to pencils.
  • Subconscious Conclusions That Do Not Suit Us Well
    • This is an example of how rules that don’t fit the facts of life can sink into our subconscious minds and vital bodies and influence us all our lives. So, I’m on a quest to find those rules and change them a little, so that my life becomes more flowing, more in the Now, and more happy. So that it doesn’t get stuck in those little childhood traumas.
  • An Awful War Story
    • Another story my dad told me during my early years: His awful World War II war story: He was in the CBs, and was in charge of a barge used to haul supplies into the beach at Normandy. Everyone he served with died, over the course of his service, except for himself.
    • Now, in my majority, I wonder how deeply his Soul might have been wounded by this experience; although he was a loving father and a good teacher about life. If the pencil story, which involved just one death, had such an influence on me, I wonder how that terrible wartime catastrophe affected my father’s life.
    • What are the consequences of war on the families that veterans go back to? I think it’s far more far-reaching than we suppose.
  • The Measure of Manhood
    • Amongst young men, there’s a great emphasis on size of sexual organs. That not-too-important thing has a tendency to stick in their subconscious minds throughout their lives, because there’s such an identification with that act of manhood.
    • It would be easy for me to say it’s not that important; but the problem is, for them, it might be super important.
  • Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind with Pictures
    • The subconscious mind and the vital body are greatly influenced by pictures. You could talk to it all day long, and that wouldn’t make as much difference as just one picture.
    • So I thought, why not … if there’s an issue that’s coming up in our subconscious mind and our vital body, such as the pencil … or maybe the size of one’s sexual organs, if you’re a man … why not do an internet search, and get some pictures, and re-evaluate the situation: It could be that most people are pretty much the same. This might have a far greater effect on self-assurance than any other approach.
    • Because we’re not really dealing with the rational mind here. We’re trying to reprogram the subconscious mind and the vital body, which are like a little child, no matter how old we get.
  • The Measure of Womanhood
    • You could say, about women, that the size of our breasts is a major issue in the society of today. But, there are plenty of supermodels that are small breasted. It’s not such a big deal, when you come right down to it.
    • So, for ladies that have an issue about size, you could do something like that: Print out pictures of ladies that are famous and beautiful, who are also small breasted (or large breasted, or whatever the problem is regarding our own self-esteem).

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Pencils! Oh No! Alice’s Story of the Consternational Pencil

Look at this, there is a ray of light coming out of the clouds here. [Shows ray of light coming from dark clouds] … There are grey clouds all around; and here the Sun is sending its beautiful rays down towards the Earth. It is right pretty.

I thought I would talk for a little while today about pencils and other entirely commotional things. So I will start with pencils … My father was an architect. And when I was very small … five or six years old … I was very interested in what he did, because I liked drawing. And so at night, he would come home with a project that was not finished, and he would be working at his drawing board, in a spare room, finishing up his architectural projects.

And for that, he would use a drafting board. A drafting board is sort of like a table, except that it is set up at an angle, so that it is easy to draw. And you sit up on a high stool, and you do your drafting. And so, I would follow him into this room, and try to interpret the drawings he did … the architectural drawings.

He had a pencil drawer in the table … in the easel  … and in it he his pencils for drawing. I was very interested in that drawer also. And so I opened the drawer, and I pulled out a pencil … a No. 2 pencil that was sharpened at both ends. This was just as a young child.

The reason it was sharpened at both ends was that it would save the architects time. So the pencil would get a little bit worn down, and then they would just flip it around, and use the other side. And then when they went to sharpen it, they would sharpen both sides. So it was twice as fast, or nearly so.

So I picked up this twice-sharpened pencil, and he grabbed it out of my hands. And he told me a story about a young man at the architectural place where my dad worked, who, like my dad, had a family. And this young man had stayed there late one night … recent to the story, apparently … and had fallen asleep while drawing. And he slumped over the table, and hit the pencil. And the pencil pierced his heart and killed him, just like that.

Well, needless to say, I was horrified. My mouth fell open. And I said something like this: Are you sure he was dead? 

And he did not say anything. He just took the pencil away from me, and started working. And I had plenty of time, in my young childhood imagination, and during that formative time, when I was trying to figure out the Rules of Life, and I was trying to set the example for myself of the rest of my life … I was making Rules …

Alice’s Story: The Rules of Life

I was thinking about this horrifying experience that my father had shared with me … Oh, it is going to start raining. Ok, to be continued in a minute. I will talk to you all in just a second. [walks from cemetery to an old, one-room country church, which is locked up, and sits on the small, roofed porch] …

Well, so this big storm cloud has blown up, and it is, for sure, going to rain in a minute or two. So I am seeking shelter in a little church. And right here on the porch I am hoping to weather the storm. I hope that the rain is not too driving. We will see what happens. Oh, goodness!

So, we were talking about this pencil. And I was formulating plans for my life, because at that age I did not have many plans, and I knew I had to have some. I was trying to figure out the laws of the Universe.

Alice’s Story: Sleep is a Dangerous Thing?

So the first thing I thought about this terrible incident, was that, it could be that it was dangerous to fall asleep … Maybe I had better just stay awake all the time, or I might die … That proved to be short-lived, and not too practical. [laughs]

Alice’s Story: Pencils Are Dangerous!

So then I reformulated the plan, and I decided that the problem was pencils … Pencils were dangerous! [laughs] And this sunk into my subconscious mind … my vital body … at that early, impressionable age. And I have to say that, even today, I do not like pencils. I really do not! … sharpened or not sharpened! Any kind of pencil, mechanical or regular … I do not care. I do not care for pencils. And so I do not have any pencils around, to speak of … lots of pens, but no pencils. [laughs]

Subconscious Conclusions that Do Not Suit Us Well

And so, this is an example of how we can formulate plans or come to conclusions, in early childhood, and through our vital body and subconscious mind … or all during life, for that matter … that may not fit the facts, or suit us too well. You know? I mean, pencils are ok, when they are used properly, do you not think?

But I cannot help it: I just do not like pencils. I mean, I could probably work it out, but it is not as important as some other things, right? Right now, it is low priority.

I have to figure that there are a lot of other things that I learned during my childhood … and all during my life … that are not serving me well. And I am on a quest, right now, to find those things and change them a little bit, so that my life becomes more flowing, more fluid, more ‘in the Now’, and more happy. So that it does not get stuck in those little, childhood traumas, and in those adulthood traumas.

My Dad’s Awful War Story

So that is the first story in the story of the consternational troubles. [laughs] And the second story has to do with another thing that my father told me when I was young.

I was just a few years older. And he had been in World War II … and apparently had a very traumatic experience there. So he told me about how he was in the Seabees … That is the  the Naval Construction Force (NCF) of the United States Navy. And he had been on one of the barges that they used to haul supplies into Normandy Beach. He was the person that was supposed to be in charge of that barge.

And there were maybe … I forget how many … 50 people? … that were working on the barge, right? And over the course of the Normandy invasion on D-Day, everyone on the boat died but he. (2) And that is all he ever told me about it. But in my majority … in my adulthood … I have to wonder how that affected his subconscious mind.

Men are supposed to ‘buck up’, you know, and see their way through all these sorts of difficulties. But if the pencil incident … which involved just one death … had that much of an influence on me, I wonder how that terrible catastrophy in his life affected him.

I have to wonder about the results of war on men, and consequently, on the families that they go back to. I think it is far more far-reaching than we suppose … And that is consternational incident number 2.

The Measure of Manhood

I thought I would close with a final incident that does not affect me directly in this lifetime, as you will soon find out. But I have run across it amongst children, and sometimes adults. And that has to do with manhood amongst men and young boys. I am not sure why it is … peer pressure, I guess … but amongst young men there is a great emphasis on size of sexual organs.

And I think that, for youngsters, that not-too-important thing has a tendency to stick in their subconscious minds and their vital bodies, because there is such a role identification with that act of manhood. It would be easy for me to say it is not too important, but the problem is: For them it might be super important.

Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind with Images

So I had a notion that, since the vital body and the subconscious mind are so influenced by pictures and images … much more so than by words: You could talk to them all day long, and it would not make as much difference as just one picture. So I thought: Why not … if there is an issue that keeps coming up in our subconscious mind, such as the issue of the pencil … or maybe it would be the size of one’s sexual organs, if you are a man … Why not just do an internet search, and get a bunch of pictures that show different sizes, and print them out …

And you may find that it is not such an issue as you thought. It could be that most people are pretty much the same, you know? But the pictures printed out, and looked at, once a day, for a little while, I think will have a far greater in improving self-assurance, than anything else.

Because we are not really dealing with the rational mind here. We are trying to reprogram the subconscious mind and the vital body, which are like little children. No matter how old we get, that is just what they are like. [laughs] Anyway, those are a few thoughts that I have.

The Measure of Womanhood

You could say the same thing about women. You could say: The size of our breasts, for instance, is kind of major in the society today. But there are plenty of supermodels that are small-breasted. It is not such a big deal, when you come right down to it.

So for ladies that have an issue about size, you could do something like that: Print out a bunch of pictures of ladies who are famous and beautiful, who are small-breasted … or whatever the problem is, about us. You know? We may find other people … just pictures of other people that are highly successful and very creative and very happy in the world, who have similar features to us, physically.

Conclusion

And that is it, on the terrible, horrible, consternational problems for today. I am hoping you do not have any. Talk to you later.

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

FOOTNOTE ON THE SEABEES

(1) Link: “Seabees,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seabee … See especially the subheading: “Naval Combat Demolition Units: NCDUs – Underwater Demolition Teams: UDT” … [paragraphing mine. –Alice] …

“In early May 1943, a two-phase “Naval Demolition Project” was directed by the Chief of Naval Operations ‘to meet a present and urgent requirement’. The first phase began at Amphibious Training Base (ATB) Solomons, Maryland with the establishment of Operational Naval Demolition Unit No. 1. Six Officers and eighteen enlisted men reported from NTC Camp Peary dynamiting and demolition school, for a four-week course … Those Seabees were immediately sent to participate in the invasion of Sicily …

“Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDUs) consisted of one officer and five enlisted and were numbered 1–212. After that first group had been trained Lt. Commander Draper Kauffman was selected to Command the program that had been set up in Camp Peary’s ‘Area E’ close to the Seabee Dynamiting and Demolition school. Six classes were graduated from Camp Peary before the program was moved to Fort Pierce …

“Another reason for the initial NCDU location being at Camp Peary was that the Joint Army Navy Experimental Testing (JANET) site, for beach obstacle removal Project DM-361, was located at Camp Bradford temporarily late 1942-43. Later, despite the move to Fort Pierce, Camp Peary was Kauffman’s manpower source. ‘He would go up to Camp Peary’s Dynamite School, assemble the (Seabees) in the auditorium and say, ‘I need volunteers for hazardous, prolonged and distant duty.” … Fort Pierce had Construction Battalion Unit 1011 assigned to the school. Its job was to construct and maintain the various obstacles needed for the demolitions class to practice their training.

“The men in those first classes referred to themselves as ‘Demolitioneers’ … The NCDUs had 34 teams in England for the invasion of Normandy.(all told they suffered 53 percent casualties on Normandy) …

“While waiting for D-day the NCDUs trained with the 146th, 277th and 299th Combat Engineer Battalions … Each NCDU had 5 men from a Combat Engineer Battlion attached to the team. In the beginning the first 10 NCDUs were split into 3 groups …

“The whole thing was a bit ad-hoc as they had no Commanding Officer, but the Senior officer was the leader of group III, Lt Smith (CEC). He served in that capacity unofficially for the entire group … His group III did a lot of experimental demolitions work and developed the Hagensen Pack … As more teams arrived a NCDU Command was created for the invasion.

  • “Naval Combat Demolition Force O was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation (United States) while Naval Combat Demolition Force U was awarded a Navy Unit Commendation for Omaha and Utah beaches at Normandy.
  • “The NCDUs at Normandy were numbers: 11, 22-30, 41-46, 127-8, 130-42 …” –from LInk: “Seabees,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seabee … CC BY 3.0 Unported
