Dear Ones,

I just took a look at a film that may help figure out how to avoid voodoo … The film is “Voodoo Man (1944)” featuring Bela Lugosi …

It is pretty hokey though. At least it is a reminder of how to spot the trance state caused by mesmerism, mental suggestion, or hypnosis. The film features the famed hypnotist (?) and actor Bela Lugosi, from days of yore.

I remember some years ago it seemed … in the dreamtime realm … that a cult (whose name I cannot know … and if I were to know, would surely dare not divulge) had targeted my physical body and energy fields (including my mental and emotional subtle bodies and my etheric net) for a takeover by the personality of their soon-to-expire cult leader.

The idea was … or so the rumor was in the astral airs … the cult leader would abandon the husk of his aged body, render me a zombie, take over my body, wreak some mischief, then hop on into another person’s body, leaving both me and his aged former form lifeless.

I guess the idea behind this dreamtime concoction was the opposite of that in this film. In the film there is the attempt to transfer the will to live and the emotions of a fresh young woman to the dead and zombified wife of the hypnotist.

Had the movie been similar to that dream I had, then the hypnotist himself would have tried to transfer his will to live and emotions into zombified me. So … the opposite.

I feel the thing to do, when such dreams occur, and when they seem to be bad omens aimed at oneself, is to build up one’s own will power. A good way is the ‘boot camp’ method … physical conditioning, especially the kind that builds 6-pack abs. Or what passes for that, for those of us who are mature ladies.

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