Dear Ones,

This video has a wild astral story in it, and ruminations on ghosts, cremation, and sacred sexuality. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have just a little to talk about on this morning of glorious Incoming Light, with regard to an astral story I have heard, off and on, and with regard to the power of the objects that we keep around us.

Societal Norms Regarding the Physical Body

First I would like to say that I think that this story is symbolic rather than actual. Here is the astral story: First I would like to talk a little about the size of a man’s phallus or penis. You know, they are all different sizes, I guess. At least that is what I have read. And I suspect that, for men who are beyond the range of the middle size of a phallus, that they run into difficulties with regard to societal expectations … whether they are in the range of rather large or long, or in the range of rather small.

And so, it is an interesting thing, the idea of what is the norm, and how society view that. It is like a totally fabricated and made up thing. And yet, by not fitting the norm of society, we fall into all kinds of trouble on the astral plane … because people say things unconsciously, and judge other people by appearances. So that is my notion on the size of a person’s penis. That is background for the story. Here is the astral story …

Astral Story: The Penis in the Pickle Jar

There was a leader who was wonderful in all respects, and greatly loved by his followers; who had many excellent Soul qualities. But he had one physical difficulty. And that was that his penis was small. And he spoke to his trusted followers, and told them, before he passed on, that he wanted them to remove that penis before he was taken to the undertaker … and that they should keep it; and that it would confer to them great Soul powers.

And so, in this fictional story, the penis was kept in a pickle jar in the room of the person that was considered to be most worthy of that honor, in this group.

Now what would happen, if that were actually true? First I would like to say that this portion of the person’s anatomy obviously contained within it great Soul wounding … because, in his mind, it would have represented the one quality in which he failed to live up to his very high spiritual standards. So in this fictitious pickle jar would be the greatest Soul wounding of a great leader.

Now what would this do to the person that held the jar … say, kept it in their room, or something like that? My astral story goes like this: That the leader said that the worthy person who kept this memento in his room would always enjoy the wisdom and the astral channeling and the leadership presence … all the wonderful qualities of the leader would always be with him. In other words, this leader would always live on, and convey … through the words of the person holding the pickle jar … the very depth of the teachings of this person.

Death and the Desire Elemental

But what would really happen? Would it be that, or would it be some other, unexpected outcome? My thoughts on this are like this …

You know we have discussed and read Arthur Powell’s information about the ‘desire elemental’ …

… which is a separate being from us, he says, that helps us to stay on Earth by always having a pull towards our animal instincts, and down towards the Earth. And in a normal person’s lifetime, when they pass on, after a time this desire elemental leaves them.

On Earthbound Spirits

Now you know, there is a theory in the Eastern religions … a theory which I agree to also … to the effect that, when we pass on, the very best way to deal with the physical body that is still on Earth, is to cremate it. And the theory in the East is that, the longer that it takes to disperse the atoms of the physical body, the longer will be a person’s stay in a kind of Earth-bound, mesmeric state, on the astral plane.

One of the reasons that I agree with this is that I have walked through graveyards, and I have found ghosts talk to me, that are still mesmerized and stuck to the grave site because the physical body has not yet decomposed. And so I agree with the Eastern concept that it is better to simply help that process along by cremating the physical body. That is what I think.

Astral Story: The Penis in the Pickle Jar, continued 

Doubling Up on the Baser Instincts? And from that, here is a wild theory: Were that astral story to be true, could it be that the desire elemental is staying with that penis in the pickle jar? Could it be that, instead of channeling in the great presence of the teacher, it is, instead, enhancing the desire elemental of the person that is in charge of taking care of the pickle jar?

Could it be, in fact, that it is channeling in those kinds of desire world qualities from all over Earth … like the desire for sexuality … the desire to kill … the fear of being killed … the desire to take over the world … the desire for money … the willingness to kill for money … in other words, what we call the baser instincts? … Because a desire elemental, all by itself, clinging to just a piece of a corpse … that would be untempered by the intellect of a human being. In other words, it would be free to pursue those instincts which are uniquely its own.

And if a person that held such a memento were to idolize, or look up to, that which was in the pickle jar, then that person’s own desire body would become coarser and coarser. And if they were the subsequent leader of that group, I could foresee all kinds of terrible things happening with regard to the karma of the group, and so forth.

Ghosts, Physical Remains, and Cremation

So what I am saying here is: First, it is a good idea to cremate the entire body. Second, it is not a good idea to keep any mementoes around, of people who have passed on, if what it is, is preserved body cells. It is much better to cremate. You know? And that will allow the Soul of the person not to be tormented by being Earthbound … because that teacher (or some fractal of him) would be kept Earthbound and tortured by what his desire elemental was doing.

On Being Haunted. So not only is it good for the person who passed on, but it is also good for the people who are either friends or followers or family or whoever, who are left behind, not to be tortured by ghosts, you know?  Ghosts need to pursue their own Soul evolution, as time goes on.

The Energy of the Things We Keep Around Us. And the other thing, I think, to be learned from this astral story, which is clearly fictional, is: It really matters what we keep in our presence … especially in our bedrooms and our meditation rooms and kitchens, I think. Well, all over the house, it is very important, the energy of the things that we keep around us.

That is why people turn to crystals and being outdoors as much as possible. There is a very high energy outdoors. Not to keep things that, in energy, are sad or angry, or that make us feel any negative emotion whatsoever, even fear of death, you know? … whatever it is.

Why not have flowers; beautiful bright lights inside? Why not have high spiritual objects and crystals around?

So that is what I think, about that one astral story.

Worship of Sexual Organs: Yoni and Lingam

Just to let you know, in the East many people worship the sexual organs, in a kind of an exalted state of sacredness … such as, I think it is called, the Yoni and the Lingam. But in these cases, what they usually use are stone, not human remains …

Image: “Lingam with Yoni and Nandi in river Narmada [River], Maheshwar MP India: Holy dip in the holy narmada river. om namah shivaya. Lingam, Yoni, Nandi to the left. Signify the male [Hindu god Shiva] and female [Hindu god Shakti or Parvati] union” … by Author Nevil Zaveri, 12 February 2013,from “Wikimedia Commons” … CC BY 2.0 Generic

So if you are of that disposition to worship the primal drives, or to understand that the nature of life on Earth flows from Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine, then why not use those sorts of symbols, rather than something sad? That is how I feel about it.

On Shrunken Heads

Postscript on human remains: This has to do with shrunken heads. I know it is an art object situation, with cultural significance. But I do feel that shrunken heads … if you happen to run across any, or have any in your collection … it would be a lot better to cremate them as well … because the spirits of the dead will stick around for situations like that.

And a shrunken head belonged to someone who was murdered, probably? Maybe an enemy of the person who cut the head off? And so you would be in a situation of animosity with the Spirit World. When one ghost is upset and angry, or even vengeful, other ghosts … that have similar Soul signatures … will cluster around. And so it can get very uncomfortable for people to keep human remains around.

And I think there are laws about it too. I just do not know what the laws are. I recall reading, one time, about someone who found somebody’s finger. And there was an assumption that the person had died, I guess. They went to great trouble to cremate that finger. Not a bad idea, you know? Not a bad idea at all.

On Attracting Restful Astral Influences to Our Homes

The extent of our involvement with the astral world is hard to calculate. But I think it is good to attract to ourselves restful influences from the higher astral world … such as nature spirits, or Devas, or like that, if you are going to be doing any astral attracting at all.

It just goes to show that the remains of people who have passed on are probably not a situation to find ourselves with, in our homes. I have no doubt but that others might have other points of view. But what are we for, on this Earth, but to stand there, and to be ourselves, and to know who we are? That is my feeling.

What an amazing story, isn’t it? God bless you and keep you.

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