Dear Ones,

Nothing much going on here … just a walk at Vallecito Lake in Colorado. An edited Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Wow, so check it out! I am over here by Vallecito Lake, and the wind is up! Look at that! [shows view of lake, through pine trees] … Maybe you could see a little bit of the lake out there … Yes, off in the far distance.

And then there is this fallen tree [shows fallen pine tree] … very cool. Can you hear the wind? And look at this [zooms to a granite rock about 8 inches on one side] … Is this not pretty? [zooms to pale green lichen on rock] … See the lichen? Wow!

And if the Light were not glancing off of this rock so much, you could see that the lichen is almost in a complete circle … Like a fourth dimensional, magical ring on the rock. So, maybe it is a lucky rock. [laughs]

All right, everybody. See you on down the trail. [shows grassy footpath amongst trees] … So, I was walking a forest path by the lake, And then I got to a clearing here … you will see it in a moment … [shows shore and lake] … See there? That is the lake. Nice, huh?

Lake Vallecito. The water is down. They used a lot of the water for agriculture already, in the farms and ranches around the area. And off in the distance [zooms to roadbed raised up on rocks, at the far end of the lake] … This is a road. This is how you access the hiking trail. [pans right, to bridge] … See there? See that bridge?

The road goes along the high embankment there, and there are no guardrails in this part of the woods, so you have to be very careful, what you are doing. [zooms back to the shore view] … Well, let us see what awaits. [shows tree stumps on shore] … Gosh, I wonder what happened here? Out along the shoreline, and all along the path here, there are all these tree stumps.

It looks like something happened, and they … for some reason … maybe it was very high water sometime … I know there has been a drought here for five years, so it was not recent. But somebody came along, and cut down all those trees. There is a story there, huh? Would this be about the 2002 Missionary Ridge fire?

[pans left, to new, metal picnic bench, painted green] … And look, right over here … right beside the path … there is a nice bench; is that not nice?

[pans right, back to footpath] … Now let us see what is coming up … [shows view of lake, with billowing storm clouds above it] … Well, Dear Ones, it is turning into a gale. And $5 or no $5 for an entrance fee, I cannot help noticing those clouds over there. And the wind is coming from there. So I am going to head very quickly back to the car, and see what comes up. Bye!

[shows view out front window, from inside car] … Well, I ran to the car, and I made it up the incline from the lake up to the road that goes round the lake. I was waiting for a deluge to take place. And then … what do you know … Nothing happened! [laughs] … The wind dies down. Everything is fine. There is a little seed caught up on my rearview mirror here. [shows gossamer white milkweed seed on car rearview mirror] … And that is the action. See you all later.

[shows view of lake from inside car, farther down the lake rim road] … Well, first the wind drove the storm clouds over that mountain range over there [the mountains beyond the lake] … far over that way. And then the wind changed direction, and came towards me. And it drove all those clouds all the way around to this side of the lake, where my car is parked.

But it looks now like maybe there will be no rain. But because the clouds were so threatening, and the wind was so high, all the fishermen left the lake and came on up here, and got in their cars, and took off just now.

And that is the saga for today: It is a whole lot of, well, peace and quiet. See you all later.

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

Dear Ones,

I got another visit from that crumb-bun Satanic Energy last night. Fortunately it was no big deal since my merkaba activated with a buzz and a whirrr at the moment of impact. It’s a very good thing that I’d been visualizing my merkaba all day long, I’m guessing. But most likely, no coincidence….

SATANIC IMPRINTS

That got me thinking about Satanic imprints. I came up with a theory worth considering. For a long time now, Laura Walker of “Oracle Report … www.oraclereport.com … has been talking about how the Dark Forces use the umph of certain astrological signs to imprint their agenda on humanity. For that, go to:

Link: “The Oracle Report,” by Laura Walker … http://www.oraclereport.com/ … Search Archives 2013 for the reports on these dates …

August 30, 2013 … paragraph 3, beginning “I must mention …”
August 31, 2013 … paragraph 3, beginning “(Note for astrologers: …”

Laura Walker has also written several free ebooks on the topic: “The Astrology of the Black Moon” and “Eris: Archetype of Shadows, Crisis and Awakening,” both available at http://www.oraclereport.com/ … Search: Books

ARE SATANIC KEY CODES EMBEDDED IN MASS MEDIA?

My wild idea is that the key codes for Satanic astrological imprints may be embedded in mass media, and that the dark forces might be activated these key codes in folks at strategically favorable astrological moments. Which may result in instantaneous, unpremeditated acts of mayhem … rape, murder, burglary, arson, and so on … in other words, a Dark Attack.

Might Internet Porn Encode Shadow Patterns in the Vital Body?

Case in point: Last Sunday our pastor talked about the addiction of many men to internet porn. It was shocking to me to see how many men in the congregation suddenly looked down at the floor. Gosh, there must be a lot of this going on. I hear it’s expensive viewing, but I guess it grabs the vital body so strongly that it’s super hard to quit.

Well, so, what if addiction to Internet porn encodes Shadow Patterns in the vital body … the gut brain … the subconscious mind … that are astrologically activated, à la Satanic Timing?

Might this then result in ‘astral porn’ … aka ‘astral rape’ energy threads in the noosphere?

Does Viewing Violence Encode Shadow Patterns in the Vital Body?

Other standouts as suspect Shadow Pattern encoders:

  • Violent TV shows and movies,
  • newspaper headlines that rouse fear,
  • pulp fiction that concentrates on violence, and
  • billboards that concentrate on lack, fear of death, and degradation of women from childbearer and nurturer to sexual object

LIFESTYLE ISSUES THAT MAY ALLOW ENCODING OF SHADOW CODES

Lifestyle that may possibly nurture and sustain Shadow Patterns once they are keyed into the Gut Brain:

  • electric circuits inside houses
  • fluorescent lighting
  • electronic equipment that is turned on
  • life in big cities — smog, traffic jams,
  • stress activators such as caffeine and sugar

ON FEELING GUILTY ABOUT SHADOW PATTERNS

Image: Cat with high heels and a guilty look: https://hautecature.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/catshoes.jpg ..

So, oh my gosh, guilty, guilty! I’ve been up to all that nonsense! I go to the movies! I work in a city! I live in a house! It has electricity! O my gosh, I bought the fluorescent light bulbs because they save money!

ON SEARCHING FOR SHADOW PATTERNS IN ONESELF

Image: Cat looking in mirror and seeing a lion there: http://www.paulcheksblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/cat-sees-lion-mirror.jpg ..

So maybe I do have Shadow Patterns stuck on me somewhere. But, oh gosh, where? What to do?

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: DARK ATTACKS: HOW SATANIC ENERGY ATTEMPTS TO INTIMIDATE US

So, speaking from personal experience:” A few things that Satanic Energy can do to scare a person:

  • It can set off a house alarm.
  • It can make your cat act like a bat out of hectorville.
  • It can make your chest muscles ache and whisper that it is giving you a heart attack (but it can’t actually give you a heart attack).
  • It can make your bed shake, rattle and roll.
  • It can make sheets of heavyweight tinfoil float up and down.
  • It can stop your internet from working.
  • It can make your phone ring, but no one will be on the other end. No one important, anyway.

What’s with the special effects? Are these actually our own ESP abilities, set in play through encoding and activation of Shadow Patterns in our subconscious minds? Could be. Most likely true, in fact. But that’s another story.

A PLAN FOR FEELING JOY, SO AS TO SHORT-CIRCUIT THE SHADOW CODES

What’s going on here, actually? These are typical attempts to frighten the wits out of you. Why? Because The Shadow ‘eats’ (thrives on) fear. And what gives The Shadow a tummy ache? Fun! So no worries… here’s what to do:

  • Go to the DVD or video section of your thrift store, and buy some used Disney cartoons. Play those when you feel the guy with the big schnoz knocking on your door.
  • Now just in case the DVD player stops working, upload a few funny childhood songs to your iTunes player. That’ll be backup plan number one.
  • And if the iTunes player won’t work, grab your honey, give them a big hug, and tell them how much you love them.
  • If you have no honey, get a drink of water, take a folding chair, and go sit outside under the stars and beautiful clouds for a while.
  • If it’s raining or snowing, just sit up straight and look steadily at a picture of the merkaba. Feel your merkaba energy all around you. Feel the energy of love and light filling in the nooks and crannies where once fear dwelled.

For that is the Divine purpose of Satanic visits … to allow us to conquer Fear. In this way, little by little, our Light Quotient increases. Life gets to be more fun. We get to be happier. At peace with the world. No longer tempting as a midnight snack to you-know-who.

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

Laundry Pipes . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 30 August 2013; published on 29 January 2018
Location: Bayfield, Colorado

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

This video is about how we might conceive of the illusion of moving through space within our holograms. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am here at the laundromat. And I noticed an interesting optical illusion over here. See, there are these pipes that go up from the driers; each drier has a pipe. And I was just waiting for the clothes to dry, and looking at the pipes. And I saw a kind of shimmer in the pipes … [sooms in.] … Yeah, there it is. See that shimmer? …

It is much more obvious to me, not looking in the camera. But you can kind of see that shimmer. And from a distance, when I see those pipes shimmering, it almost looks like they are moving. That is what it looks like to me. It looks like they are moving and changing, morphing.

So then I looked around for the reason for that, and I notice in the ceiling, there are these ceiling fans, And not only that, but there are these lights. So what is happening is, the ceiling fan blades are angled a little bit. And at a certain point, they are hitting the light from the lights in the ceiling.

And then from there, there is a change in the light of the tubes that go up from the driers. So they look like they are shaking and shimmering. But the thing of it is, they are not shaking and shimmering. It is just that the Light is changing. See, the Light is changing … if you look really closely.

So the thing of it is, in our physical form, we are kind of like those pipes leading up from the driers. It looks like we are moving and changing, and all that … And actually, movement in the world might be explained like that: As a change in Light. Just a change in Light. Not actually physical change.

So that is what I was thinking. Things are not always what they seem to be. We might be a spinning merkabah that reflects Light differently. That may be the mechanism of the hologram of 3D reality. Maybe there are different angles of reflection. Or maybe there are moods that color the merkabah.

That is just a thought for you. It is not an explanation. I am wishing you well. Take care!

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

Merkaba for Safety . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 August 2013; revised

  • ON HAVING A MERKABA
  • ON SENSING ONE’S MERKABA
  • VISUALIZING THE MERKABA

Dear Ones,

ON HAVING A MERKABA

I’ve been thinking about ways to feel safe in our waking and sleeping life. I mentioned in a previous post I was talking to the healer Jeffrey Allen … https://www.iamjeffreyallen.com … last week. One of the many things he said had to deal with my merkaba. He said he was checking out my merkaba, it it looked ok. Just fine.

I said, You mean I have a merkaba? He said, Certainly. I can see it clearly.

ON SENSING ONE’S MERKABA

What a relief! Problem had been, I didn’t feel my merkaba. So I figured most likely I didn’t have one yet. This would be something I would have to build, probably with a fair amount of effort and possibly with a number of false starts, slip ups, tearings down, and rebuildings. Something that would take time….

All this mental meandering was, it seems, utter nonsense. I do have a merkaba, whether or not I sense it. And so do you!

VISUALIZING THE MERKABA

So, to help me visualize … and feel the protection and safety of … my merkaba, I’ve printed one off the internet. I’m going to put one in my living room, and one on the bedroom wall. Here it is, in case the idea appeals to you as well.

Leaders, Followers, Letting Go of Those We Love, and Expanding into the Light . referral by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 August 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

Here is a great video by Bill Ballard about the difference between being a wayshower and a guru. It also explains about filtering-through into our consciousness of fears and other ‘speckles’ from others whose light quotient differs from ours, and the need to let go of our connections with them …

Video: “8-29-13 Bill Ballard ~ Sensing a Calming in the Energies ~ Moving into Wholeness of Self” …  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgkyQ83sLJU ..

I would like to add that this letting go is of immense benefit both to us, and to those we let go of. Letting go is a prerequisite of the ascension process. Not to worry about it, or try to force it, though — it will all happen naturally. Hakuna Matata!

The Overflowing Beaker . Shelter in Times of Chaos . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 August 2013; revised

  • ANCHORING LIGHT BY OFFERING TO HEAL THE WORLD
  • KEEPING YOUR HOME SAFE
    • “Overflowing Beaker Meditation,” by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

ANCHORING LIGHT BY OFFERING TO HEAL THE WORLD

I had a healing from Lightworker Jeffrey Allen … https://www.iamjeffreyallen.com … recently. He mentioned something I sort of knew, but he said it in such a way that it really sparked my interest. It was about Light work and healing work in the world today.

Jeffrey Allen said that the best way to heal and anchor Light is to fill our own personal vessels with Divine Light, so much so that the overflow of Light from our personal vessel is what we offer as healing for the world. I visualize it like this …

[Imagine an image of a beaker full of green liquid and with white smoke piling out of the top and down onto a table]

Here are your friends!

[Imagine an image of three differently sized beakers with different colored fluids in them, steaming over with dry ice mist].

KEEPING YOUR HOME SAFE

Lots of folks feel unsafe during times of chaos such as that we’re now experiencing. Shelter, like good food and good medical care, is a primary concern. So I thought of a way to make my home feel safe and full of Divine love. It’s a visualization … a variation on the Overflowing Beaker theme:

“The Overflowing Beaker Meditation”
by Alice B. Clagett
30 August 2013

Imagine that your home is a bowl of Divine love, overflowing with abundance. The love bubbles up over the roof of your home, out over the homes in your neighborhood, greeting each passer-by with a blessing of Light …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

All right, well here it is: goats! [shows goats] … Hi, goats! They are kind of scared of me. Hi, dudes! There is one hiding under the tree over there. Hey! Aw, it likes me. Hello, dude! That’s it. See you all later. Bye-bye.

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I was driving along the road, and I saw a sign that said, “River Access.” So I came down here, to the end of this road over here [shows grassy area] … and then I saw this sign [shows yellow sign} which is pretty scary, and says, “Emergency Exit Channel for Boaters … Travel Over Dam Is Very Dangerous, and Could Result in Death.”

So then, naturally, I looked for the dam right away. You see these signs a lot in Colorado; apparently, a lot of people take to the water, and then there are these obstructions that could result in death. So let us take a look. [pans to river] … You have to assume some people actually gave it a try, and then they put up the signs.

Over here [zooms in, to ruffled water] … I think that is the dam right there. Maybe it is not; maybe it is just heading towards the dam.

And then, there is this really wide river. [pans across the river] … Wow! Huge, wide river, right? And a little place to sit here. [shows roughly paved boat ramp] … So I am going to sit here, and talk for a minute about samskaras.

The Cattle in the Front Yard

So, look what I found [shows cow] … Is it not beautiful? Some kind of cow … and a bunch more of them. And they were right here by the river too, Here comes the bull, I think. [shows bull] … Oh, my goodness! [Speaking to bull:] Hello! Don’t get mad at me! [panning to cows] … and lots of friends …

I was on my way up to sit someplace, [Speaking of bull:] Here he comes! He is after me! … No, ok, I am safe.

These cattle here are a lot like samskaras; If you can imagine a bunch of cattle in your back yard, or your front yard, say. And every time you walk out of the house to go to the convenience store, or to work, you see these cattle there, right?

[A cow walks up.] Oh, who is this? 

After a while, you get really used to the cattle in the front yard, and you don’t pay any attention to them any more. But they are always there … they are always popping up. And that’s just like samskaras.

So hang on; I am going to find a seat far from the cattle, and we will continue this conversation.

What Are Samskaras?

We were talking about samskaras, and how they are sort of like cows right out front, and we do not pay that much attention to them because they are always there.

The thing about samskaras is, they could be positive or negative tendencies. The ones that we really want to get rid of are the negative samskaras. And they both … positive and negative … operate by the same rules.

And that is, if we, in our current lifetime, expose ourselves more, to the energy signature or frequency or resonance of that particular samskara, it grows in energy and the tendency increases for us to act it out in real life.

On Attenuation of Samskaras

So, as far as negative samskaras are concerned, the very first thing to do … You see the cattle back there? [shows cattle far behind her] … a sufficient distance away, thank God! Well, they are sort of like attenuated samskaras … we will get to that in a moment … because they are far away; they are small, right? They are relatively small; that is the way it is. They are not threatening me right now. I felt a little threatened when they were close by. [laughs wryly]

So anyway, [points to far-away cattle] there they are, the attenuated samskaras back there. [laughs]

And the way you can attenuate: First you have to identify them. You notice that you are having a certain habit of thought that you don’t like:

  • It might be impatience.
  • It might be just a general negativity.
  • It might be self-pity, or low self-esteem.
  • It could be a tendency toward anger, toward regret or grief
  • These are just some examples; it could be practically anything

And these things are not very helpful in your life. And it seems that they are growing. And maybe, even, you are acting them out in your life, right?

Today’s Mass Media Increase the Energy of Our Negative Samskaras

So the thing to do, first of all, is: You realize that tendency is there. And the next thing has to do with attenuation. You can do that in several ways: The first possibility, and the simplest one, might be to realize what things, in your life, are causing those samskaras to increase.

For a lot of people today, and almost invariably, this has to do with visual input, like from television, the movies, the internet. And the reason for that is that many of the images and even many of the words on the internet … many of the images on television and in the movies … are negative, and tend to increase the energy of whatever negative samskaras we have.

So first, I would look at my television viewing, say, or what movies I like to watch, when I go out, or what I am really doing on the internet. And change that, so that whatever it is, is not something that makes my negative samskaras stronger.

That is kind of hard to do, because there are very few entertainment options that enhance positive samskaras right now. But it can be done.

  • For instance, there is that Spiritual Cinema … https://www.spiritualcinemacircle.com/ … option that you have on the internet. And there are documentary films, depending on the type of documentary and so forth:
  • There are the Gaia films and documentaries https://www.gaia.com/ ..
  • I also hear that CuriosityStreamhttps://curiositystream.com offers nonfiction documentaries as well as science, technology, nature, and history videos.
  • There are some good, worthwhile movies coming up on Youtube nowhttps://www.youtube.com ..

On Carousing, and on Avoiding People That Cause Problems in Your Life

Or let’s say you have a tendency to carouse and make merry, right? The problem is, the people that are in that ‘carouse and make merry’ place where you go, have a tendency towards various behaviors that are life-threatening to you, or dangerous to other people.

And so, the thing to do, if you like to carouse and make merry, is to find a group of people that like to do that, that do not cause those problems for you, in your life. So that is another example of avoiding experiences that make things worse.

Using One of My Own Past Life Memories with Swamij’s Technique for Attenuating Samskaras

Then, of course, the next thing, so as to attenuate the samskaras that you have, is to try a visualization … I think it was recommended by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati … https://swamij.com … but anyway, you can get a lot more information on attenuating samskaras at his website …

Link: “Uncoloring Your Colored Thoughts Through Yoga,” by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati … https://swamij.com/klishta-aklishta.htm ..

The way I use this technique is like this … Suppose, for example, I remember a past lifetime when something really terrible happened. I had a brother that I really loved, and he killed me, brutally over a woman. It was awful! We were two brothers together. And it’s a hard one to forget, because of the closeness between us, and because of the total reversal of roles that happened at the moment of death, which can be very traumatic … although it is not always so.

So I remember that. And I have a tendency, in this lifetime, because of that, not to trust people in a brotherly relationship. It is not true any more, because the tendency has been attenuated. Had that work not been done, it would be true today. 

So the way to visualize attenuation, is to imagine that past lifetime death, in all its awful detail, and with all the full emotional response. And then start changing it every time that it comes up. The way I do it is like this:

  • Oh, I remember a story like that. I read about it in my childhood. I wish I had never read it; it was really gruesome. But it was just a story. (That is the first thing.)
  • And then next time it could be something like: Oh, gee, a friend of mine told me that story a long time ago … about somebody else that was a stranger to her. What a terrible story. Gosh! (Like that … farther and farther away from you … like the cows, right?)
  • And so, then, one of the things I like is: Oh, gee! That story! I was looking through the library catalog some years ago, and I saw something about a story like that. But I went back, and I looked in the catalog, and Lo and behold! The book is no longer there!
  • So after awhile, the story just loses all of its kick, and all of its ability to influence me during this lifetime.

So that’s one of the attenuation techniques.

Patanjali’s Method for Attenuating Samskaras

And then there is another technique, and that is to practice the opposite. This is Patanjali’s technique …

Citation: “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali,” translated with a commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, copyright 1953, 1981 by The Vedanta Society of Southern California

Let’s say you know the energy signature of the thing you want to avoid. So then, according to Patanjali, you might look at what activities you could add to your life, or increase in your life, that would have the exact opposite effect … or, at least, a neutralizing effect.

So in the case of distrust, it might be to work in a situation where trust is needed, like eldercare. It could be taking care of children; it could be assisting someone who needs help, in any way; it might be caring for pets… So you’re getting yourself into a situation where you can practice trust, you know? (not the opposite).

Well so, that is all I have for you right now about that. And maybe we will get a picture of the goats before this video ends. Wait and see … [The goats did not cooperate.]

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