Thoughts on Manner of Birth . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 1 June 2019

Dear Ones,

Could it be that, if a mother is pain-reduced while giving birth, the child is predisposed to drug use?

Could it be that, if a mother is not pain-reduced while giving birth, then the child is predisposed to avoid having children?

Could it be that children born through breech presentation might view buttocks as more desirable sex symbols than the sexual organs?

Here is a question: What might be learned about a child’s Soul contract and Soul missions in this lifetime, through the manner in which it is born?

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a poem written during the monthly creative writing class I attended at the beginning of May. The stance of the poem I feel to be good for me as a neutral observer of humankind.

Elsewhere in my blogs I express the stance I would take were I a transvestite (a crossdresser) or transgender person dealing with the Ascension clearing process through the Incoming Light. That process also involves neutral witnessing, I feel, but of a different sort: In that field ‘beyond right and wrong’ (to quote the great mystical poet Rumi) each of us stands alone with God, and assesses the what and wherefore of our human condition, the causal incidents of our Soul wounding, and that ruthlessly truthful Awareness that leads to an ever brighter Body of Light.

There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

At writing class last month, we had an assignment to write a story that included certain words. Each person in the class contributed one word at that moment; and the words were: candle, crutch, soar, sadness, transvestite, and excitement. 

My gift to the class was a poem that included all those words. Here is that poem for you; the title is “Hold a Candle” ….

. . . . .

Hold a Candle
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett, 5 May 2019

Soundtrack

 

Words

Hold a candle
Find a light
Hold it high
Against the night

What’s a hindrance?
What’s a crutch?
Find the surest
Healing touch!

Soar in laughter
Sink in pain
Sense the level
Strong terrain

Sadness catches
One and all
Then allows us
To recall

How excitement
May sustain —
Double, triple
Each small gain

Trust that
Each transvestite’s fear
May find comfort
Somewhere

Hear their yearning
Sense their call:
I’m God’s child
As are we all.

. . . . .

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

Masked Mummery: What If a Person Wore a Satan Mask While Having Sex? . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 4 September 2018

Dear Ones,

What has been coming up in the dream world for clearing, for quite some time now, is this dream: There are a group of people, one woman, several men, and a young child, who engage in a sexual rite, a ‘Masked Sexual Mummery’, on the full moon each month.

Everyone wears Devil outfits, even the young child, whose role is to tantalize and also shake down for blackmail, if that child trafficking line is crossed by the adult members of the troupe. In the dream, one person gets to play the head Devil, and wears a pretty bodaciously evil costume, reminiscent of that worn by Nic Cage in this image …

Image: “Nic Cage as Mola Ram: Kali ma, Mike Dunn, kali ma,” http://niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com/2010/01/nic-cage-as-mola-ram.html ..

Why the masks and costumes? Could be they just like to wear these clothes while having sex … Maybe they find it titivating. Too, when people wear masks while having sex, there is less of a possibility of blackmail through surreptitious movie-making.

Now let’s say there is one person who sometimes acts in this performance, a person who loves to feel his heart energy while having sex. And he is a very important person, a person of power, who, in daily life, has to deal with the low life of the world. He encounters all kinds of really bad people. But he himself has the highest ideals. How then may he hold this disparity?

Well, masked sexual mummery is one way to resolve the issue: He can feel his heart, while transforming the energy of all those of evil inclinations he encounters in daily life, by assuming the garb … taking on the role … pretending to be Really Evil.

It might be his way of doing what we Lightworkers call Transformation through the Light; and what Christians call the Sacrament of Communion … a way to uplift the Profane through the Sacred energy of the human heart. That might be the conscious intent behind the Masked Sexual Mummery, whether it be something acted out in 3D, or whether it be simply a recurring sexual fantasy.

Through the dream world, though, I am getting that there may be unintended consequences of such an act. These have to do with the subconscious mind.

Orgasm is one of the most powerful means of upliftment for humankind. Masks have a very powerful impact on the subconscious mind. It could be the person who has this daydream, or else the people involved in the 3D Mummery … as the case may be … And the full moon is the most powerful time of month for transformation, whether for good or for ill.

It could be that the act of orgasm … while wearing a mask symbolizing evil … imprints upon the subconscious mind, month after month, the conviction that the act of sex is evil, and that the person wearing the mask is the personage portrayed by the mask. The subconscious mind of the masked person may begin to feel that it is the Devil, or that it is in league with the Devil, or that it has made a deal with the Devil, or has sold its Soul to the Devil. Like that.

Subconscious minds … being, as they are, the part of the Iceberg of the Human Mind beneath the polar seas I term the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World … are all connected. What is beneath his ‘belt’ is beneath my belt as well, and beneath yours, and beneath the belt of every human being on Earth.

Once this person’s subconscious mind becomes convinced it is in league with the Devil, before long, the subconscious mind of everyone on Earth will be as convinced of this fantasy as he is.

He being a powerful man and all, his colleagues will begin to feel that he is a pretty scary guy. Maybe even the Devil himself. Then, deep in their subconscious minds, they will need to make a choice: Will I live in fear, or will I turn to courage, and strength of heart.

The subconscious mind doesn’t work in a logical way. It works through symbols, images and metaphor. It attributes a particular emotion to a particular symbol or image. Not a thought, but generally speaking, a strong emotion.

Thus when the subconscious minds of the associates of this person visualize him, they ‘see’ the Devil, and they feel fear. Their Soul says: Fear not!

So then they say, in that peculiar, short-cut kind of way that is typical of the operation of the subconscious mind: There is no Devil! This fear that I have is simply a fiction of my subconscious mind. And then if they are challenged about it, they will say, defensively: Everyone on Earth agrees with me about this; it is an unarguable fact.

Well so, this is not entirely true. That courage is a better emotion than fear, is beyond doubt unarguable. That their associate … who monthly assumes the aspect of Satan … is not, in fact, the Devil himself, is also beyond doubt unarguable. That they need not fear the Devil is a given. That the act of sex is a Sacred act, through which we may find communion with God, is a Truth I hold to be self evident; a Truth even greater than the great truths of which Thomas Jefferson (1) once spoke.

Our right to uplift the world through joyful orgasm is the unalienable right of every human being on Earth. This is the fundament of the human being, the great transforming act, that which enlivens us, and sets us free, and makes us happy.

If joyful orgasm may bring us to the very feet of God, then what may Satan be? Can we even propose that a being such as Satan exists?

Yes, I feel, Satan does exist. He prowls the waves of the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World in the form of a man who wears the mask of a Devil while performing this, God’s most Sacred act of Sexual Communion.

Satan is that which calls the act of sex Evil. Satan is that which feels the act of sex to be Profane. Satan is that which must wear a mask before the very throne of God.

Let us remove the masks, and meet God face to face, whether it be in this once monthly act of bliss, whether it be in peaceful contemplation, in worship, in celebration of our working life, in communion with the family of man, or in nightly Surrender to the Divine.

Let us set Satan aside, and find God each moment, in the air that enters our lungs, vivifying this human form. Let us find Him in the outreached hand clasping the hand of those we encounter on life’s path; in the eyes of the children that trust in us, and in the words of those like Thomas Jefferson, who know with certain surety that Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness are God’s gifts to each of us,

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

The Truth about the Astral Experience of Sexuality . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 1 September 2018

  • ASTRAL RAPE: THE INFLUENCE OF ASTRAL ELEMENTARIES SUCH AS INCUBI AND SUCCUBI
  • WHAT TO DO ABOUT ASTRAL RAPE

Dear Ones,

Here are excerpts from a blog I just now updated …

ASTRAL RAPE: THE INFLUENCE OF ASTRAL ELEMENTARIES SUCH AS INCUBI AND SUCCUBI

“I have clair heard for a long time now that folks are experiencing persistent astral rape at night. Unfortunately, we are blaming each other for these events, when in fact they are the workings of a certain sort of negative astral entity, the ‘elementary’. Here’s a description adapted from ‘The Theosophical Writings of Annie Besant’. It is about depraved people … people with coarse astral matter … who have experienced sudden death, perhaps by suicide or accident …

“‘Unhappy shades, if sinful and sensual, they wander about . . . until their death-hour comes. Cut off in the full flush of earthly passions, which bind them to familiar scenes, they are enticed by opportunities which mediums afford to gratify them vicariously. They are the Pishachas, the Incubi and Succubi of medieval times: the demons of thirst, gluttony, lust and avarice : elementaries of intensified craft, wickedness and cruelty: provoking their victims to horrid crimes, and revelling in their commission’–from “The Theosophical Writings of Annie Besant,” by Annie Besant, available on Amazon.com  … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

WHAT TO DO ABOUT ASTRAL RAPE

“At first, as a person is beginning to awaken to an understanding of the demonic vehicle of astral rape on the Earthly planes, the sensation is identified with the Id, and the Id with the Ego, to such an extent that the experience is hypnotically compelling and overwhelmingly intoxicating. This painting, while it is of a woman ecstatically in love with the ‘night mare’ of astral rape, might as easily have been of a man in the same condition …

Image: “Frenzy of Exultations,” by Wladyslaw Podkowinski, 1894, in Wikimedia Commons. This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author’s life plus 100 years or less.

“After a span of years, if the person so afflicted begins to sense the demon conveyance of the dream of astral rape, rather than sensing a false connection between two human beings, then the awareness dawns that this is a trap set by the demon realm to ensnare the human electromagnetic field and drain it of energy, making life on Earth but a poor shadow of that majestic energy that is our birthright.

“When this awareness dawns, then there is nothing more alluring, nothing more beguiling to a person, than the notion that, by hook or by crook, they will find a way to win themselves free of the delusive enticements of the Big Bads.

“My own experience is that the experience of astral rape can be overcome by transforming the energy of the lower triangle to Divine Love and Light. One way to do this is, while the noospheric experience of astral rape seems to be taking place, to visualize that God is clearing the Light Body of sexual malware and negspeak … such as the Puritan notion that sexuality is evil, or the cultural undercurrent notions that men are Satanic, or that women are demonic.”

Call to Action: Psy Crime and Self Mortification by Spiritual Adepts . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 19 June 2018
Information in green font is not in the AudioTrack

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

 

I have a Call to Action. I heard this on the psychic plane. While extremely unlikely, it is problematic if, in fact, it could be true. I heard that there are a few people who went to see that Indian Festival movie some years ago … was this a movie of the Mahakumbh Mela at Allahabad in 2001? … and who saw there an Indian Sadhu, or wonder worker, who was tying his penis in a knot, as a way of expressing his asceticism. And who decided to try that out. And who have been employing this abominable technique ever since, for the purpose of increasing their psychic powers … Specifically, so that they can send their astral forms out of body to obsess or possess someone else, so as to coerce them into doing the evil deeds that they themselves would not wish to be responsible for.

If this is true, the clear explanation for it would be that the astral form of a person who is voluntarily torturing themself in this way would, no doubt, rather fly into someone else’s physical presence, than be present and subjected to the physical pain of that kind of torture.

I would like to request that law enforcement, if it runs across people who are doing the practice, take into consideration the ramifications in terms of criminal activity. It’s time we took into account the issue of psy crime.

And as far as the people who, putatively, are practicing this technique are concerned, my consideration would be that prolonged infliction of pain in this manner would make it eventually impossible for the penis to perform the functions that it is intended to perform … It might lead to urogenital problems. It might lead to erectile dysfunction, and so forth.

I ask you, if it’s worth it to you, to risk these outcomes simply for financial gain, and that in a criminal manner.

I have a hunch, too that this practice may lead to child molestation or worse; that is an issue I hope psychology / psychiatry will look into. I offer as a putative mechanism repression of the sex drive, perhaps to do with sexually restrictive … possibly or religiously rigid early childhood learning experiences. In other words, when the knot is untied, and the sex act attempted, then memories of childhood nay saying may flood in, leading the spiritual adept to choose, as a sexual partner, a child.

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

Multiple Personality Disorder . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 29 May 2018; revised on 23 February 2019

IMPORTANT: While it seems to me that I may once have had an experience of encountering a multiple personality such as the one described below, the people in the first image, and the silhouette of the man in the second image do not in the least resemble the man I encountered. In fact, I chose to use these images for that reason.

Dear Ones,

Because I once apparently encountered a perilous situation with regard to a multiple personality … the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of literary fame … I have added this blog to the category: Alice’s perilous tales

I looked up Multiple Personality Disorder in Wikipedia. (1) There I found this image …

“Image: “illustration depicting an individual with dissociative identity disorder.” by 04Mukti, from Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 3.0 unported

Image: “illustration depicting an individual with dissociative identity disorder.” by 04Mukti, from Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 3.0 unported

I have seen Multiple Personality Disorder described in the literature in terms reminiscent of the above image … to the effect that a person with Multiple Personality Disorder is a sad and shivering victim of a dysfunctional ego, splintered into many different mirrors of the roles the victim sees being played out in other people.

However, in some cases, I feel this clinical impression of the disorder to be disarming and misleading. Specifically, when Multiple Personality Disorder results from a catastrophic childhood experience (2), the sexually expressive personality can have a ‘kill for the thrill’ aspect, as in the case of Jack the Ripper. (3) In other words, the sexual aspect may be that of a sexual predator (4) …

I used the below image in a different context (5) before, but it would also be good to view it in the context of Multiple Personality Disorder (also known as Dissociative Identity Disorder).

In the latter context, the illustration might show the ‘normal’ personality of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder, and a ‘serial killer’ personality ‘behind’ him …

Image: Serial killer personality behind the silhouette of the ‘normal’ personality of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder. The serial killer personality is depicted by an altered version of the painting “The Great Red Dragon and the Beast from the Sea,” by William Blake, 1805, public domain; and the ‘normal’ personality is depicted by the silhouette of a man (who is facing forward). The silhouette is an adaptation of “Man standing silhouette.svg” by Open Clip Art Library, 16 April 2009, in Wikimedia Commons, public domain. I chose this silhouette because it did not resemble anyone whom I felt to be a multiple personality. Adapted and compiled by Alice B. Clagett, 22 February 2018, CC BY-SA 4.0. — This is an alternate interpretation of a drawing found in “Triple Vortical ‘Vampire Effect’ – a Temporary Ascension Symptom,” by Alice B. Clagett, in “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com ..

The serial killer personality is depicted by an altered version of the painting “The Great Red Dragon and the Beast from the Sea,” by William Blake, 1805, public domain; and the ‘normal’ personality is depicted by the silhouette of a man (who is facing forward). The silhouette is an adaptation of “Man standing silhouette.svg” by Open Clip Art Library, 16 April 2009, in Wikimedia Commons, public domain.

Clagett, in “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com ..

Then, there might be another personality, that of a helpless young woman … or of the helpless victim of the serial killer. In that case, the multiple personality might dress like a woman and behave in an effeminate manner …

Image: “Portrait of a Young Woman,” by Johannes Vermeer, 1665-67, public domain

Image: “Portrait of a Young Woman,” by Johannes Vermeer, 1665-67, public domain

Each personality might have a different name, if overheard on the ‘astral airs’ … startlingly different names, like Jim, for the ‘normal’; Estelle, for the ‘victim’, and Panther, for the serial killer. These are just ‘made up’ names I’m using as examples.

In my own thankfully uneventful encounter with a Panther persona a few years ago, because I am psy, I noticed a demonic aspect to the energy of the Panther personality; that is the impetus for my second image in this blog, the collage of the shadow man and the William Blake drawing, which I slightly altered.

Speaking intuitively, I feel there is a possibility that the ‘Jack the Ripper’ aspect of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder might have mind control abilities that might aid him in pursuit of prey … hypnotic abilities. Here I pose the example of the cuttlefish, which hypnotizes its prey with oscillating color displays …

Link: “Hypnosis Attack: World’s Deadliest,” by Nat Geo Wild, published on 21 May 2012, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1T4ZgkCuiM ..

Maybe the sudden switch from one personality to another, in the case of a stalker who suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder, has a similar hypnotic effect on the victim. Could this be about the expectations of the victim being suddenly flummoxed? Could the victim of the Panther, like the victim of the color-oscillating cuttlefish, be in a state of shocked bemusement? A state of ‘mind mud’?

I have further hypotheses that the splintered personality who mimics the roles of those he sees around him might also feel that one of his favored personalities obsesses other people and causes them to act out roles in life.

He might also feel that acting out of favored roles, say through the movies, might influence a movie-viewing community to minimize the import of a ‘Jack the Ripper’ persona. In other words, that he might make a movie that would alter societal expectations in such a way that the predatorial role becomes socially acceptable. Would this be what is termed in psychology ‘projection’ or might there be some truth to it, from an astral perspective, I wonder?

People who hypothesize the existence of demonic energies separate from the shadow of the personality of a person, and as separate from the shadow of the personality of the collective unconscious of humankind, would infer the further threat of black magic energies coursing through the predatory persona of a person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder.

Were it to be so, then the hypothetical threat … that of a demonically possessed patient and a demonically obsessed victim … would be the greater.

Thus I urge psychologists and psychiatrists to approach therapy for people suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder with utmost attention to their personal safety and for that of those restraining and seeing to the needs of the patient.

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

“Markandeya Rishi Tempted by Cupid and His Followers” . by Jadurani devi dasi . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

At the below link are a beautiful painting on canvas by Jadurani devi dasi, entitled “Markandeya Rishi Tempted by Cupid and His Followers.”

The accompanying scriptural reference, Shrimad Bhagavatam, 12.8.15-16, is strikingly pertinent to what has been percolating round through the astral airs, and clearing from Earth, since the year 2000 …

Link: “Markandeya Rishi Tempted by Cupid and His Followers.” by Jadurani devi dasi, http://bbt.se/art_html/Markandeya.html ..

The scriptural description linked to above has to do with temptations a spiritual person faces on the path to knowledge of God. Yet we are all experiencing these temptations in recent years. Thus, we humankind are all, in these years of the Second Coming … of what lightworkers term the Ascension … and of what other faiths term the Last Judgment … facing those same temptations that heretofore were only grappled with by saints and sages.

Lightning fast, each of us faces temptation upon temptation … as the scripture says: dancing girls, delights of the senses, greed, and intoxication. If not on the physical plane, then wafting through the astral airs.

The first word in the above scripture is ‘Cupid’. Who is Cupid, really? Is he the god of romantic love, who gets couples to tie the knot? Or is he a being who gets folks so involved in the idea of romance, that they forget all about seeking God? Or is he a being who drags this instance of the play of God in manifest reality down into the Satan worlds?

What name do we hear most frequently on the astral ‘internet’? If not ‘Cupid’, then what name do we hear? Who is this seeming man, who mystifies our sleeping minds with thoughts of dancing girls, or dancing boys? Who rules our daydreams with internet porn? Who drags our high and hopeful thoughts into the mire of object grasping, almost gotten, ne’er forsaken dreams?

Cupid, the man who made the hall of mirrors that we call the world. Cupid, who conjures up the Other that can ne’er be us. Try as we might, we will not find him … or her … our true Beloved … in the mirrors of the senses. In the eyes of the world.

Yet, in those eyes, if we look closely, we can catch a glimpse of Him.

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