Dear Ones,

I know Ascension lore is a bit more optimistic in orientation than some of the ways of interpreting the Biblical Revelation of Saint John the Divine. So I thought I would provide some blogs on the chapters of Revelation, with comments in an Ascension context.

Here is the video on Revelation, Chapter 8. The Musical Sequel features “Prelude No. 20” from the album “Preludes” by Chris Zabriskie, CC BY 4.0; with Visuals by Alice B. Clagett, CC BY-SA 4.0

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I am sitting here at beautiful Navajo Lake, Colorado, right now, in the afternoon, waiting for my crystals to absorb some of the Winter Solstice sunlight, which is already starting to pour into Earth, for the last few days. It has been astounding.

I was looking at the Revelation of Saint John the Divine, Chapter 8, in the Bible. I thought I would read Chapter 8 right now, and then offer just a short commentary on it, from an Ascension point of view.

I should warn you, in advance: I have been re-reading Chapter 8 for a while, now, and I do not see many good predictions in it. So … Be prepared! Here it goes …

Revelation of Saint John the Divine, Chapter 8 (KJV, public domain)

1 “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

2 “And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 “And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 “And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

5 “And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

6 “And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

7 “The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

8 “And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

9 “And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

10 “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

11 “And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

12 “And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

13 “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”

Alice’s Commentary

This very last verse is a cliffhanger, is it not? It has been building up all through the chapter … a lot of bad tidings; a lot of things that might cause consternation. And at the very end, an angel flies by, saying that there are three more angels yet to go, and they are a lot worse than what we were talking about just then.

Well, Dear Ones, this is the thing: The Earth has changed to New Earth. As the minds of men adjust to this, it can seem to us that there are a great deal of worrisome things happening, in the third dimension.

Some of this I can speak to, from the prior history of Earth; and some I cannot … just referring to Chapter 8. (Chapter 9, you will find, is also a lollapalooza.

The First Angel. When the first angel sounded, it says “there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth,” and this burnt up the trees and the grass. The best I can do with this is that it might be describing a volcanic eruption.

The Second Angel. And when the second angel shows a vision, that is a lot like in Hawaii … the lava going into the sea. And it reads like this:

8 “And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;”

Yes, that reminds me of those video clips I have seen, of lava from volcanic eruptions, flowing down to the sea, in Hawaii … and how the sea boils with the lava. Of course, it is not an exact description of that, but it is reminiscent of that; and that may be what is meant there.

The verse about the first angel would be something like the volcanic eruption, and the great clumps of matter that are thrown out of a volcano, and might be landing on people and hurting them … burning up the grass and the trees and like that. And the verse about the second angel might be about the flow of lava into the sea. Let us just say, that is one, natural explanation for those verses. So: There may be volcanic eruptions; that is basically the way I interpret verses 7 and 8. 

And then it says there is great loss of life, of creatures in the sea, and of ships … which would make sense, if it were a sea, rather than the ocean, and there were a volcanic eruption.

On Faith in Christ. I see many references to ‘a third’ in this section. To tell the truth, I have been thinking about this chapter for a long time … and whether to take ‘one third’ literally or not. I am thinking that what is really being said here is that, if we do not let go of our minds, and feel Christ consciousness … Christ’s love, and faith in Christ … during the time of Ascension, then it is going to seem really difficult. It is going to be very fearful.

When the passage describes the destruction of a third, it may be must saying: Be careful. We will see more of this later … Be careful, because things are going to be very tough. That would be the nonliteral interpretation of a third of everything just being destroyed.

That is the one that I tend to favor … because, you know, timeline-wise, we have the option, always, to optimize our timelines and to move forward, into a more abundant and beautiful future … a more peaceful future … and to bring that loop right back to the present.

We have the free will, and the co-creative ability, not to experience the types of fears and scariness that other people may or may not be feeling, as things change. We have the ability to be copacetic about the whole thing,

It is totally up to us, is what I am saying; we are not at the effect of what goes on. This was true in the times before the Ascension, too, that we had the ability to feel our hearts, and feel love, and feel grateful and thankful for all that is … in the darkest times on Earth, before the Shift … and the more so now, as the tests and tribulations come, faster and faster.

Really, these tests and tribulations are just the shadow that presents to our minds, in the great Light … the ever-increasing Light of Christ consciousness that is coming in to Earth … all the more so now, for the last few days, and onward, into the Winter Solstice, which will be a whole month, starting now, of glorious light coming in to Earth.

We can sit, and say to ourselves: My goodness! What shadows are cast by this bright Light! Or we can just look at the Light, you know? [laughs] So we have that choice.

The Third Angel. And to go on to the third angel

10 “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

11 “And the name of the star is called Wormwood:”

It sounds very catastrophic, and it reminds me of the descriptions of meteors that have come into the Earth’s atmosphere, and burned brightly, and it could be described as burning like a lamp.

So this might be a meteor. I do not know what it means about making the waters like wormwood, and then “many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

I am not sure what that means … unless there may have been an historical event in which a meteor struck, say, the Red Sea, or the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) and possibly there was something in the meteor, some mineral, that turned the sea water bitter, and poisonous. Or possibly, this may be a reference to a poisonous ‘Red Tide’?

Link: “Red Tide,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_tide ..

In general, I think that this Biblical passage has to do with a meteor.

The Fourth Angel. Let us go on to the fourth angel …

12 “And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.”

This passage reminds me of a kind of concatenation (1) of stories about eclipses here … eclipses of the moon, eclipses of the Sun … that is what it seems like.

So basically, the first four signs … the first four angels that are sounding … are saying that the natural order of things is interrupted by signs … signs from the heavens, and signs from Earth too … like volcanic eruptions; perhaps a comet lighting up the skies; and maybe eclipses of the Sun and moon. But the description in this Chapter 8 is much more dramatic than that.

Ways to Cope with Sky Signs and Earth Signs

So, in general, I would say: As the Light comes in, this November and December … as the Light of Solstice comes in … the thing to do is to get out of the mental mind … get out into nature … meditate in nature … and if possible, place crystals on Earth, and let them absorb the sunlight all day long … say a little prayer [looks up; sees a rabbit; laughs] that the sunlight will come straight down to the Earth, and bless everything on Earth, including our minds, you know? … everything on Earth: all the people, all the animals, all the rabbits, all the waters.

Pretty soon we are going to be doing Chapter 9. I can only imagine what interesting things await us. [laughs] Until then, do not let the mind get the better of you. We could go with all different kinds of scenarios of the mind; or we can just step out, into the natural world, and ground and experience the ecstasy of creation. It is up to us: We get to decide.

On Seeing Signs in God’s Creation

The other thing I am thinking is, I did see a sign. I look for signs all the time … like the Native Americans do. I look for signs in everything; not just sunlight, but in the way the wind blows, in the way that people smile, in the way that the green grass comes up on Earth … Everything that I see is a sign, to me, of the way that the Creation is going, and that God’s blessing to Earth is coming in, and like that.

Sometimes I see wonderful signs. And sometimes I see signs that are the product of the mental mind that is causing humanity such woe, you know? Because the mental mind, if it likes anything, likes to stay the way it is,  [laughs] And now, everything is changing!

Signs of Anger Last Week

So what I saw, in the last week, were signs of anger. I was in a store in a small town near where I have a summer home. And just after, there had been two young ladies … relatively young ladies, I think … I was told this story … who had gotten into a fist fight in a parking lot! And I am here to tell you, this never happens in our community; it just never happens. And so that was a strong sign.

When the Light comes in very strongly, one reaction that people can have is irritability … physical irritability. There are ways to manage anger that do not have to do with acting out: If you are the ones that were there doing that, I would like you to know that you provided a good milestone for the rest of us, because others are having that trouble too, right now. I appreciate that you provided that milestone for us; and I hope that we will be able to deal well with feelings of irritation and anger when we cannot get out into nature.

So there is that; just a reminder. I think that the trouble that happened in Paris just a little while ago, had to do with anger too. And so, it could be that what is clearing, right now, is anger.

On Transforming Anger through Neutral Mind

For those of us that are wayshowers and lightbearers, the thing to do is to sense the anger of other people, sense our own anger, and then sit, and transform all those emotions through the heart. And that will allow us to distance the empathetic feeling through neutral mind. So, heads up! …

Conclusion

Chapter Eight … I have been delaying! And that is because I do not want anyone to feel fear. That is the one thing that we need not do … because through faith in Christ, and hope in Christ, and if we feel Christ’s love, and believe and understand the unconditional love expressed through Christ’s life, and that manifests right now, in Earth and in many wonderful human beings, why should we ever feel fear and anger?

We are human; we do these things. But let us pull back from it, the moment we can, and turn to the New … and turn to the great wonder of the love and Light and joy.

You all take care, till next we meet.
