Dear Ones,

Here are some visuals showing my recent experience with facilitating a group circle meditation in a domed room. The intention is to facilitate the influx of Incoming Light, so that the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the world may be cleared through Divine grace.

Domed rooms are a little tricky, as they can increase the clockwise circular flow of energy, creating a whirlwind effect. Domes also can consolidate the group energy in a dome shaped configuration. However, the visual effect of the dome can restrict the height of the group energy to the height of the dome. Group meditations held outdoors are less height-restrictive, but the energy of the outdoor group is less condensed and also, not packed with spiral energy.

DOME 1: SEATING CHART FOR THE DOMED CIRCLE MEDITATION. Here’s a diagram of the seating in the domed circle meditation I attended. The big dark circle represents the outer edge of the seating area. The seating area was in the center of the domed structure, the floor of which was twice as wide as the seating area.

Small circles that are empty represent empty chairs. Small circles with the female sign had women sitting in them. Small circles with the male sign had men sitting in them. The bright yellow circle was the seat of the meditation leader; beside him, in the pink circle, sat his wife. Around them was a golden tantric force field. The dark orange circle was the seat of a good looking young man with a spiritual demeanor; beside him, in the light orange circle, sat the equally good looking young woman who was with him. Around them was a golden tantric force field. The couple was maybe half the age of the other meditators. The green circle was where I sat as facilitator.

DOME 2: ON ESTABLISHING A FACILITATION VECTOR. When facilitating a group circle meditation in a domed structure, I never sit opposite anyone. An empty chair across the circle from me is fine. In the case of this event, though, the best seat I could find was across from the meditation leader and his wife. I moved my chair as far as possible to the left so that my midline, my hara line (1), was opposite the space between the two of them.  For the alignment of the vector, see the arrow in the diagram below:

ON AVOIDING LOWER TRIANGLE HOOKUPS DURING GROUP MEDITATION

My purpose in so sitting was to avoid a lower triangle hookup between me and another member of the circle. Lower triangle hookups occur when I sit directly facing someone else, unless they have a strong sense of their own EMF field.

To get a strong sense of one’s own EMF field, one must align one’s awareness with God rather than with the phenomenal world (2); in this way one begins to see the shallowness of the causal view of reality. Thus one escapes from the chains of the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World (called by some the Collective Unconscious), which flow through the lower triangle of every human being, and causes astral bonding during group meditations.

Formation of unconscious astral bonds detracts from the buildup of God-awareness in a meditator, as it distorts and confounds the energy of the personal EMF. Thus, experienced meditators avoid these bonds.

DOME 3: CENTRAL KARMIC KNOT. Immediately as the meditation started, the energy of the meditation leader (bright yellow circle next to the pink circle) set the tenor and the rhythm. Very soon, there was a ramping up of negative energies of the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World, which I experienced as clair hearing regarding what seemed like societal expectations regarding suppression of the sex drive and the drive to aggression.

It appeared to me that the lower triangle energies of the meditators were meeting in the center of the circle and forming a writhing karmic knot; the energy configuration, which looked like this …

DOME 4. FORMATION OF A COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS ASTRAL CORD. Then the energy of the group members’ Lower Triangles … which had been expressing as the writhing karmic knot in the center of the circle … was flooded with sexual energy from the lower triangle of the young, good looking man (dark orange circle, next to light orange circle).

Because he was sitting directly opposite a woman, and his hara line was directly aligned with hers, his lower triangle energy channeled the sexual energy of all the meditators into her lower triangle. The resultant collective unconscious astral bond that formed looked like this:

DOME 5. FACILITATOR SHIFTS TO PERIPHERAL VECTOR. Seeing that the curr ent orientation of my hara line was insufficient to start the spiral energy (vortical energy) that could sweep away this collective lower triangle astral bond, I shifted my sitting position so that my knees faced an empty chair to my left.

The arrow next to the green circle below shows the direction in which my knees were pointing. See how that arrow is parallel to the big arrow in the center of the circle? Thus the energy of my vector (the small arrow next to the green circle) flowed in the same direction as that of the meditator in the dark orange chair.

  • For this reason, I wasn’t engaged in a struggle with the energy flow of the group.
  • Because my vector (my arrow) was more on the periphery of the seating area, I hoped to ‘push’ the group energy in the direction of the typical vortical clockwise spiral that aids the clearing of the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World as the Incoming Light slowly ramps up and offers humankind the opportunity to Awaken.

DOME 6. CLOCKWISE SPIRAL ENERGY FLOW ESTABLISHED. Luckily, the hoped-for clockwise spiral energy began to take place, the astral cord dissolved, the karmic knot in the center of the meditation area disbursed, and the energy of the group became more synchronous, more golden, and more uplifted or conscious. However, because of the unruly nature of the astral matter that evening (and in fact, all that week), my EMF, and perhaps those of the other meditators, remained somewhat unstable for the duration of the evening.

AN ANALOGY OF PERIPHERAL VECTOR SPINNING TO THE CHILDHOOD GAME OF STICKS AND HOOPS. This sitting sideways, and facing in the direction of clockwise energy flow for a circle meditation is like the old-fashioned childhood game of sticks and hoops (“rolling hoops”). The children used to strike a hoop with a sideways blow of the stick, causing it to rotate. Because the hoop wasn’t fixed in place, it would move forward, and they would run to keep up.

Of course, during a domed circle meditation, the ‘hoop’ is the astral air inside the dome, the center of which is the center of the dome. This air has nowhere to go but round and round the fixed center of the meditation room, as the ‘striking stick’ of the facilitator’s vector (the arrow in the illustration ‘Dome 5’) adds spin to the astral air.

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

Chakric rebalancing techniques may be helpful to clear lower triangle imbalances. My favorite is to concentrate on each of the chakras in turn, and their colors, and to say: Remove any excess of the color [name the color] in my aura; add any of the color [name the color] that needs to be added.  See https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra for the chakras and their colors. Note there is also a chakra in the center of your upper chest, corresponding to the thymus gland. Its color is magenta, and it can be added to your color array to help heal and regenerate the body.

Taking a  shower may also be helpful, as may purification ceremonies such as smudging and chanting.

The morning after the meditation, on waking, conscious clearing of the lower triangle may be helpful.

Pragmatic Prophet: Towards a Vision of a Crime-Free America . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 22 June 2016

Dear Ones,

A while back, my local Unitarian Universalist Society, which has an interest in social justice, offered a course in what felons face here in the United States after leaving prison. I took the course, and that got me interested in the general topic.

Mass media can make the world of criminality seem appealing … fast-paced, even glamorous. Because criminal acts are featured so often on the news, on nightly TV, and at the movies, people are led to believe that criminality is a normal, ordinary choice of lifestyle. This notion that crime is popular and ordinary … that it has entertainment value … is one way in which mass media today insidiously undermine the social fabric of America.

In this blog, I will offer a brief summary of the facts regarding felony conviction. My hope is that this will help everyone understand the very severe consequences of having a felony on one’s record. Here are the blog subheadings …

  • What Is a Felony?
  • What Are the Personal Consequences of a Felony Conviction in the United States?
  • Expungement of a Felony Conviction
  • Towards a Vision of a Crime-Free America
    • Education of Young People
    • Future Treatment of Felons
    • Sweeping Changes in the Tenor of Mass Media

WHAT IS A FELONY?

Felonies include but are not limited to the following ,,,

WHAT ARE THE PERSONAL CONSEQUENCES OF A FELONY CONVICTION IN THE UNITED STATES?

“In many parts of the United States, a felon can face long-term legal consequences persisting after the end of their imprisonment. The status and designation as a ‘felon’ is considered permanent, and is not extinguished upon sentence completion even if parole, probation or early release was given. [18] The status can be cleared only by a successful appeal or executive clemency. However, felons may apply for restoration of some rights after a certain period of time has passed.

“The consequences felons face in most states include:

“Additionally, many job applications and rental applications ask about felony history (with the exception of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and answering dishonestly on them can be grounds for rejecting the application, or termination if the lie is discovered after hire. This is because most bonding companies do not issue bonds to felons, which effectively bars them from certain jobs. Additionally, most landlords do not rent to felons due to the risk of legal liability if the renter commits another crime.

“It is legal to discriminate against felons in hiring decisions as well as the decision to rent housing to a person, so felons can face barriers to finding both jobs and housing. A common term of parole is to avoid associating with other felons. In some neighborhoods with high rates of felony conviction, this creates a situation where many felons live with a constant threat of being arrested for violating parole. [18] Many banks refuse service to felons, and some states consider a felony conviction grounds for an uncontested divorce.

“In some states, restoration of those rights depends on repayment of various fees associated with the felon’s arrest, processing, and prison stay, such as restitution to victims, or outstanding fines. [18]” (1)

EXPUNGEMENT

“For state law convictions, expungement is determined by the law of the state. Many states do not allow expungement, regardless of the offense, though felons can seek pardons and clemency, including restoration of rights….

“Federal law does not have any provisions for persons convicted of federal felonies in a federal United States district court to apply to have their record expunged. While the pending Second Chance Act … would change this if enacted, at present the only relief that an individual prosecuted in federal court may receive is a Presidential Pardon, which does not expunge the conviction, but rather grants relief from the civil disabilities that stem from it….” (1)

TOWARDS A VISION OF A CRIME-FREE AMERICA

Education of Young People

I feel that the future holds promise of change in the education of the young regarding social norms and societal expectations, and that this change will support the beginnings of a crime-free America. I place my hopes on schools offering our children these opportunities …

  • study of the Declaration of Independence,
  • discussion of the United States Constitution, and
  • information regarding how the rights of felons are curtailed here in the United States, so that they will understand the consequences of the criminal acts so popularly glamorized in the mass media

Future Treatment of Felons

I also feel that the future holds promise of many changes in treatment of those convicted of felony.  For instance …

  • I foresee job education and work parole programs for felons serving time. This trend, which looks quite promising, has already begun here in the United States
  • For released felons, I see a trend toward rehabilitation into the mainstream, with a chance to be reunited with their families, even if their families are in public housing. Laws to the contrary very clearly contribute to the degradation of the American family-oriented social values.
  • I also feel that more job programs will be developed to help felons find good work that helps them develop and reinforce mainstream social values.
  • Depriving felons of socialized medical care serves no purpose; if they need medical care and cannot find law-abiding work, then they will be driven to a life of crime, such as burglary or robbery, in order to pay for medicines. Thus it serves society well to allow felons as much access to socialized medical care as is available to those with no criminal record.

Sweeping Changes in the Tenor of Mass Media

Regarding mass media, I foresee …

  • a global coming to consciousness regarding the hurtful aspects of mass media today, which emphasizes violence and glamorizes crime
  • a broad swath of the world population consciously choosing more uplifting entertainment programming that supports their vision of the world of tomorrow
  • I further see many people choosing mass media that create in the viewer the emotions of appreciation, gratitude, joy, and peace, rather than the emotions of fear, anger, rage, and hatred. I see folks choosing these as a way of co-creating the new reality on Earth. It is, after all, the strength and flavor of our emotions that shapes the future of Earth’s nations.

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

How to Attract Angels and Dispel Demons . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 21 June 2016
The Latin word ‘draco’ below means ‘dragon’ or ‘serpent’. In the context of this blog, I have categorized it not as ‘dragon’ but as ‘drac’, a reptilian species in popular folklore. This might also have to do with my blog category: Reptilian mind

    • Murder, or Being Murdered, or Arranging for a Murder
    • Making a Living as a Sex Worker, Frequenting Sex Workers, or Having a Promiscuous Lifestyle with Heart Chakra Relatively Shut Down

Dear Ones,

I have checked into traditional Christian thought regarding demon realm buy-ins. There is a fair amount of dispute about this so I compared what I read with clair chat in recent years. The loudest clair chatter has to do with the greatest Soul wounding, so I used ‘clair loudness’ as a selector.

DEMON REALM BUY-INS

It appears that the following actions attract demonic (rather than angelic) entities to a person’s Soul field:

Drug Use, or Selling Drugs

This has to do with damage to the energies that connect the physical body to the astral body, and also with the astral animals that hover round drugs …

Hovering above his head is a dark being that looks like a giant wasp. It is sending blue-white light into the right side of the sleeping boy’s head.

Murder, or Being Murdered, or Arranging for a Murder

As God and the Universe are light and love and joy, the energy strand of killing is very nearly the opposite of our God-nature. Although I’ve seen nothing written about it, intuitively I feel that thoughts of murder, as well as the act itself, directly attract demons to one’s astral body. This is because demons feed on hatred, fear, anxiety, and other negative emotions.

Making a Living as a Sex Worker, Frequenting Sex Workers, or Having a Promiscuous Lifestyle with Heart Chakra Relatively Shut Down

This has to do with ‘samskaric flu’ … the leaping onto one’s own energy field of other people’s sexual malware (EMF tangles) to do with linking sexuality to survival needs or greed. Linking sexual expression with the heart chakra plumps up the tangled ‘lines of Light’ or axiatonal lines, and repairs the EMF.

Mutilation of One’s Body, or Someone Else’s Body, Including Transgender Sex Operations

This is because of the upset caused in the emotional body by the loss of the body cells. The emotional upset is attractive to demons.

Rectal intercourse, Amongst Both Men and Women

This is because rectal intercourse causes damage to the lower part of the central energy channel of the spine (the sushumna), making it necessary to repair the energy flow of the sushumna before raising the kundalini.

The epitome of a demonic buy-in would be, say, a transgender person on drugs who practices rectal intercourse for pay and enjoys killing as a means of expressing his or her sex drive.

HOW TO GET BACK AMONGST THE ANGELS

Contracts with the demon realm are usually devised quite stealthily by these astral animals, so more often than not, humans are ensnared through trickery. If you see a danger of any of the above issues amongst your samskaras, it would be good, first of all, to banish demons from your immediate presence.

If Demons Are Sent to You by Other People

For demons sent by other people, use this affirmation, which works because demons do not like to be bound down to untasty, good people …

You are free! Go where you will!

Getting Rid of Tenacious Demons: The Prayer of Exorcism of St. Benedict

For the more tenacious demons, use the Prayer of Exorcism of St. Benedict, in Latin …

“Crux sacra sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
“Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
“Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas”

Here is the approximate English translation …

“Let the Holy Cross be my light / Let not the dragon be my guide
Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself.”

–from Link: “Vade Retro Satana,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vade_retro_satana …  Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareATrlike License ..

And here are two good videos in which the chant is recited. The first is a women’s version from the Instituto Hesed, and the second is for men …

Cancel Any Contracts with the Demon World, and Optimize Timelines and Dimensions

You can use this affirmation …

Spirit to Team!
Cancel all contracts!
Optimize all timelines and dimensions!
For the All, through Free Will!

Making One’s Home and Person More Appealing to the Angelic Realm

These may also be of help: Placing spiritual pictures in the home, playing spiritual music, cleansing the home by burning sage, being very clean in person and in personal environments, getting out into the sunlight or into a sunlit, shady place, wearing a a sign of your faith such as a cross or sacred medal, and finding a spiritual congregation with which to spend time.

Effects of Psychic Spinal Surgery above the Second Chakra . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 19 June 2016

Dear Ones,

Sometimes psychic surgery is performed to sever the central channel of the spine just above the second chakra, under the mistaken assumption that it will make a person more saintly by removing the temptation to perform the sex act. 

Here is why this type of psychic surgery is inadvisable …

  • It will shorten your life span.
  • It will make it impossible for the Lower Mental Body to be united with, and under conscious control of, the Higher Mental Body. In other words, the Lower Mental Body will ‘go its own way’.
  • While you are waking, the Lower Mental Body will keep up a constant clair chatter and visualizations about participating in the act of sex; the visualizations will be tinged with negative emotions, and the themes will be of sadomasochistic sexuality and other such themes that express these negative emotions. This sexual chatter will alternate with clair stories and vivid, violent daydreams about murdering people or being killed. This is because the cells of the ‘lower triangle’ perceive the psychic surgery as an act of violence against themselves. They perceive that the Higher Self hates them, and they wilt away, contracting physical diseases because of it.
  • While you are sleeping, if the emotional body is in a state of anger, fear, or anxiety because of some small upset during the day, the severed ‘desire elemental’ is likely to participate in astral activities aimed at harming, raping, or murdering others. This is because it has been deprived of the wisdom and tutelage of the higher mind and conscience.
  • Further, you will find it impossible to ground; the astral body will be thrown out into the astral plane, where because of the astral damage done, it will fall prey to the demon realm.

For those who have had such psychic spinal surgeries, either voluntarily or involuntarily, the best remedy is to seek out a good psychic or energetic healer. This includes spiritual healers who are able to work long distance, specialists in acupressure and acupuncture, and practitioners of Thai health massage. Yoga, if practiced very gently, may also be helpful, as may visualization of the energy of the spine as whole, and coursing freely in a natural way.

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

Acceptable Collateral Damage Mental Filter in America . by Alice B. Clagett

  • ON OPTIMIZING TIMELINES SO AS TO ELIMINATE DENSE TIMELINES

Dear Ones,

ACCEPTABLE COLLATERAL DAMAGE MENTAL FILTER

I have come across an astral story recently that is really ‘out there’. There has been talk in recent years about the notion of acceptable collateral damage. Some feel that this notion, while regrettable, is a practical one.

This implied consent to the practicality of the notion has apparently led to the circulation of the Acceptable Collateral Damage Mental Filter in the noosphere. I feel this mental filter is completely without merit or truth, and that it is being used by antisocial personalities (ASPs) … who are quite wily, when all is said and done … as cover for their serial killing and other crimes.

MISSING CHILDREN: FEAR THAT FUELS THE MYTH

One sees posters from time to time about missing children. The famous case of the missing Dylan Redwine boy is one such instance …

Link: “Dylan Redwine: The Journey to Justice,” on Facebook …  https://www.facebook.com/FindMissingDylanRedwine/ ..

There are many other cases of missing children all over the world, and even here in the United States. I expect that may contribute to the tenacity of this astral story in the noosphere. The story goes like this …

RATIOCINATION ABOUT SECRET SERVICE OPERATIVES BEING ENTITLED TO HOMELAND KILLS AS A RETIREMENT PERK

The notion of collateral damage is considered acceptable … regrettable, but practical in today’s world. So then, along the lines of practicality, the astral story continues like this: What is the proper hiring profile for the intelligence agencies of the world? Would not an antisocial personality, such as a serial killer, be perfect for this job? But then, what would be the retirement prerogatives of an intelligence agent who is an ASP?

Practically speaking … but regrettably so … this astral story then makes an assumption regarding acceptable collateral damage among the relatively powerless portions of a homeland population. For instance, the retired ASP operative might be assigned an acceptable kill rate per month among ‘the powerless’ citizens of a small town, such as …

  • children
  • single women
  • the elderly
  • people with alternate lifestyles
  • homeless men and women
  • underserved ethnicities

WOULD AMERICANS BE WILLING TO ACCEPT SUCH A GAME PLAN?

What a sci fi scenario that would be, would it not? How would the people of a country feel about having retired ASPs at work ‘in their own back yard’? In America, whose Declaration of Independence, the very cornerstone of our country, states that this notion of acceptable collateral damage in one’s own backyard clearly would not fly …

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” –from “United States Declaration of Independence,” in Wikipedia …  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Declaration_of_Independence … Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License ..

The average American citizen would ask …

  • How many ‘hits’ might an ASP operative be expected to make during his or her working life, serving their country?
  • How many ‘hits’ per year, among their home country population, might be considered acceptable collateral damage?
  • How many years might they expect to live after retirement?

The average American would multiply the ‘hits’ per retirement year by the life expectancy of the retired ASP operative, and compare the product to the number of hits during the operative’s working life.  I crunched these numbers below …

Hits per Retired Operative: The Conservative Estimate

10 years as an operative  =  possibly a maximum of 10 ‘hits’ while working. 40 years retirement, at 1 hypothetically approved homeland retirement ‘hit’ per month  =  (40 retirement years)  x  (12 months per year)  =  480 hypothetically approved homeland retirement ‘hits’.  480 – 10 = 470 freebie ‘hits’ in one ASP operative’s lifetime. In other words, the 10 hits while working as an operative would be balanced by 10 of the ‘freebie’ homeland retirement hits. And the remaining 470 freebie hits would be way in excess of a ‘murder credit’ that might be unfathomably assigned by a government to its retired operatives.

Hits per Retired Operative: The Estimate If Things Get Out of Hand

With ASPs, things can get out of hand at times, depending primarily on substance abuse and the opportunistic synchrony resulting from keeping bad company. And so, ‘hits’ can ratchet up from 1 per month (which an ASP would consider the model of prudent self-restraint) to 1 per week (or more) (which an ASP would consider simply to be ‘bad timing’ from the standpoint of possible public scrutiny).

Crunching the numbers from the perspective of 1 ‘hit’ per week, it would be (40 retirement years)  x  (52 weeks per year)  =  2,080 homeland ‘hits’ during an ASP’s retirement.  2,080 – 10 would then = 2,070 freebie ‘hits’ in one ASP operative’s lifetime, from a pragmatic standpoint.

The True Numbers of Homeland Citizens That Might be Slain

An ASP is an ASP, all his or her life, and the ‘hit’ pattern continues throughout the ASP’s life. One ought thus to calculate into such a hypothetical scenario out of hand ‘hits’ starting at, say, 9 years of age, and on through, say, 30 years of age, which would be a putative retirement date.

That would be (21 years preretirement)  x (12 months per year)  =  252 additional freebie homeland ‘hits’ in a conservative scenario.

Or, in an out-of-hand. weekly ‘hit’ scenario, (21 years pretirement) x (52 weeks per year)  = 1,092 preretirement hits.

Adding It All Up …

  • Conservative scenario of one ‘hit’ per month: (252 preretirement ‘hits’) + (480 freebie ‘hits’ during retirement) = 732 homeland lives lost during one ASP’s lifetime.
  • ‘Out of hand’ scenario of one ‘hit’ per week: (1,092 preretirement ‘hits’) + (2,080 ‘hits’ during retirement) = 3,172 homeland lives lost during one ASP’s lifetime.

What Conclusion Would the Average American Reach, as to Permissiveness Regarding Homeland Slayings by Retired Operatives?

Then the average American would very likely conclude that the cost in the lives of those he loved … the threat of death to his children, his wife, his fellow co-workers and their families … far outweighed the service the ASP had provided to his country.

I feel this to be true: Americans would vote, hands down, against such an astral story taking up space in their personal reality. It’s quite clear that this mental filter is nothing but a ‘Hollywood movie’ that has wafted into everyone’s Awareness on the astral plane.

ON OPTIMIZING TIMELINES SO AS TO ELIMINATE DENSE TIMELINES

This New Earth sparkles with love and Light. We can change everything, in the wink of an eye! When these sorts of dense timeline scenarios waft into my Awareness, I very quickly turn to timeline optimization …

Spirit to Team!
Optimize Timelines!
For the All, through Free Will!

The minute I do so, all is new, and fresh, and full of love and Light. I see before me the freedom to live my life, with all the liberties our great Constitution provides … to pursue my own happiness … to follow my heart, on a beautiful, sunny summer day, here in America, the Land of the Free.

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

Suppression of 2014 Data on the US HIV / AIDS Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 June 2016; revised

  • STATISTICS: SUPPRESSION OF HIV DATA
  • THE SITUATION IN OTHER COUNTRIES
  • CLAIR INTEL ON UNDERREPORTED POPULATIONS
    • Women and Children
    • Sex Workers
  • CLAIR INTEL ON HIV / AIDS INFANTS
  • CLAIR INTEL ON PRISONERS IN PENAL INSTITUTIONS
  • OVER-THE-COUNTER HIV / AIDS TESTS
  • A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

Dear Ones,

I have done some research because of the conflict between my clair intel on HIV / AIDS incidence and the US government and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) statistics, and have come up with some concerning results.

STATISTICS: SUPPRESSION OF HIV DATA

At the CDC Atlas I went to HIV diagnoses in the United States, at … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas … [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

I clicked on the “View Counties” button. I noticed in the key at the top right that a white background with horizontal marks across it indicates counties where Data Are Suppressed (1) :

HIV data suppressed

Image: Rate per 100,000 … horizontal hatching means ‘data suppressed’ … in “United States HIV Diagnoses 2014,” at the “CDC [Centers for Disease Control] Atlas” … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas … … [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

[As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

These areas appear as white on the following map (1)  …

HIV diagnoses-US

Map: “United States HIV Diagnoses 2014,” at the “CDC [Centers for Disease Control] Atlas” … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas … public domain … Shows many white geographic areas, indicating where data are suppressed … [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

Thus it appears that data have been suppressed in almost all counties in the US States with the exception of about 2/3 of California and about 4/5 of Arizona. There is also a smattering of reporting along the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf Coast.

In Alaska and the US Territories data have been suppressed. Hawaii is reporting.

Thus the reason for the optimistic outlook regarding HIV / AIDS in the United States. See …

LInk: “HIV Basics,” at HIV.gov … https://www.hiv.gov/hiv-basics ..

… most likely has to do with suppression of data on a broad scale.

THE SITUATION IN OTHER COUNTRIES

My intuitive feeling is that the situation may be more grave in most other countries, with the exception of the developed countries, which most likely have more funding for health education and health care than do the less developed countries. However, I have not yet done the research on the global situation.

CLAIR INTEL ON UNDERREPORTED POPULATIONS

Women and Children

From my reading, I have heard that HIV infection of United States women is underreported, apparently because US Medical Institutions do not consider women who are straight and in relationships with men to be at risk, and consequently do not provide testing.

There is an issue with social stigma for women and men who are primarily straight, where the men may be engaging in casual MSM (male sex with men) as well. This would be a social stigma for both the man and woman in the primarily straight relationship.

  • Thus the man in such a straight relationship may have HIV / AIDS, and also possibly hepatitis, but be unwilling to tell his wife about it.
  • If true, this would result in danger of infecting the children in a primarily straight relationship as well, through the wife not taking necessary precautions to avoid infecting the children.
  • On the clair plane, I have even heard of instances of HIV testers at medical facilities being offered bribes to change a wife’s HIV test to negative (that is, to a ‘no HIV’ result).
  • On the clair plane, I have also heard that wealth and power can sometimes buy indigent parents’ assent to sexual abuse of children, both young boys and young girls, for a pittance. If true, this would put such children at risk for HIV infection.

Sex Workers

  • I have clair intel regarding sex workers bribing HIV testers at medical facilities to return negative results (that is, to ‘no HIV’ results).

CLAIR INTEL ON HIV / AIDS INFANTS

  • I have clair intel regarding HIV-positive infants at medical facilities being unadoptable, and being euthanized, and further clair intel that I find disturbing, to the effect there may be a market for these infants’ HIV-infected organs.
  • I would like to make it clear that, in a slow-moving epidemic such as the current global HIV / AIDS epidemic, it is the HIV-positive infants that offer the most hope for the future of humankind, as there will be some among them who are resistant to HIV / AIDS. As with the flu epidemic in the early 1900s, the resistant population will be the basis of the future world community. So for the sake of the world, I beg our peoples to care for and nurture these infants with HIV / AIDS.

CLAIR INTEL ON PRISONERS IN PENAL INSTITUTIONS

  • Regarding penal institutions, on the clair plane my intel is that incarceration carries a high risk of contracting HIV / AIDS through rape by inmates. The jails are too overcrowded, I hear, to allow a person a cell by himself, and so the threat of rape by fellow prisoners is quite clear.
  • I have more to say about incarceration: I feel that a minor infraction, such as a DUI speeding ticket that results in incarceration, ought not to be a ticket to contracting HIV / AIDS. The penalty, I feel, is too steep for the infraction. So I ask that we all put our heads together and think what might be done about this. Having HIV / AIDS makes it harder to find work, and also harder to excel at a job because of health challenges.
  • On the clair plane I have also heard prisoners’ fears that, if they ask for a private cell, they run the risk of being raped by law enforcement. If true … and I am sure such instances would be rare, considering the fine quality of our law enforcement officers … then in such an instance the officer and his family would also be at higher risk, and might wish to seek HIV testing. (2)

OVER-THE-COUNTER HIV TESTS

I notice that Ora-Quick offers a $40 in-home HIV tests that is sold through major drug stores. This is touted as being as accurate as Medical Facility Tests. If true, this would be a way for women and children to ‘bridge the gap’ between the tests now provided through Medical Facilities and the reality of the situation at hand.

A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

For those who are now diagnosed HIV-positive: Know that you are not alone. There are many, many who are diagnosed the same. It’s just that the figures are not out there; they are suppressed.

And too, those who have HIV / AIDS are laboring under more than the effects of this disease; an even greater burden is the negative opinion our friends and family may have of us if they find out, and the way people treat us when we apply for work.

Dear Ones, knowledge is power. If we know and understand what we’re up against as a nation, we will find the courage and hope to stand together in community and see this great nation through the coming difficult times.

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

(2) On the Drug War and Prison Overcrowding. Our law enforcement officers are, I feel, doing their very best to deal with a difficult situation, considering the drug war and overcrowding in penal facilities.

In the longer run, I feel our nation will turn to making drugs legal, so that the tax on drug sales can be used for drug use education and rehabilitation. If the sale of drugs were legal, there would be less violence around this sector of the economy … as is the case with the sale of cigarettes and liquor. Thus the job of law enforcement would be less dangerous. It could also be that law enforcement might have an opportunity to assist with drug use education and rehabilitation.

Penal facilities have already turned to Work Parole and similar programs, and that is a good step; education and rehabilitation by law enforcement for those in Work Parole programs might also be helpful. In short, in the coming years, I see the role of law enforcement turning, overall, to education and rehabilitation programs.

Introduction

Dear Ones,

This is the first of two sections on Enlightenment. I start off with an explanation of the Incoming Light at times of high Light on Earth. This high Light can cause a person to take more Light into their personal energy field, or to flee from the Light and to acquire more Darkness in their personal energy field.

Why is that? The answer has to do with the way that we react to threat energy.  The way that we react often has to do with automatic conditioning … habit … rather than conscious thinking.

How we react to the novel condition of greater Incoming Light … especially during annual Equinoxes and Solstices, during astronomical gateways, during geostorms, during Earth-directed solar wind gusts, and during intervals of Solar Maximums … has a very great deal to do with whether we continue on the path to Enlightenment, or whether we retreat to Dark ground perceived as more safe.

My feeling is, the more we bring our subconscious responses to threat energy to the Light of our Awareness, the more likely we will be able to react to threat energy in the way most helpful to our survival.  Will it be fight flight? Will it be freeze, fawn, or flop?

Do we have the tools at hand to avoid using any of these defense mechanisms? Can we find a way to settle our minds, bodies, and emotions so that we can seek the life-preserving and lifeline-extending benefits of a higher wattage personal energy field? Will we clam up, or will we seek Enlightenment during times of high Light?

This blog will explore these questions.

Human Responses to the Prospect of Change: Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn, or Flop?

“Responses to the Prospect of Change,” by Alice B. Clagett, 16 September 2022, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com ..

“Responses to the Prospect of Change,” by Alice B. Clagett, 16 September 2022, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com .. 

In the past, I have put forth that solar events such as geostorms can cause the fight response (which I term ‘acting out’) or the flight response (generalized anxiety or panic attack, since the threat is not physical). Later I read, and immediately saw the truth of, the notion that there is another possible response to a perceived threat … that is the freeze-and-dissociate response (which, for the sake of simplicity, I term the freeze response) …

Link: “Trauma and the Freeze Response: Good, Bad, or Both? Have You Ever Been So Paralyzed by Fear that You Simply Dissociated from It All?” by Leon F. Seltzer, Ph.D., 8 July 2015, in Psychology Today …  https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/evolution-the-self/201507/trauma-and-the-freeze-response-good-bad-or-both ..

Even later I found there are three more possible responses to the prospect of change; these are the fawn response, the flop response … and in the most desperate instance, falling over dead due to shock.

When I read about these bodily responses to perceived threats, I was immediately taken back to my youth, out in the countryside, where I saw our family German Shepherd enthusiastically digging up a rabbit burrow, and uncovering a little rabbit inside the burrow. Clearly the rabbit was frozen with fear … It ‘shrank into itself’  … With great concern, I picked it up. It looked to me like the rabbit was paralyzed, unseeing, unfeeling … completely unresponsive.

Looking back to those days, when I found a little wild animal ‘frozen in fear’ back then, in the countryside, it must have been exhibiting the freeze response  …

Then sometimes a wild animal would come to its senses, and run away (the flight response) …

I remember a wounded chipmunk once came back to Awareness and bite me (the fight response).

Clagett

Sometimes a little wild animal would act friendly towards me. This is known as the fawn response.

Sometimes a tiny wild animal would faint when it saw me or my German shepherd. This is known as the flop response.

And sometimes a small wild animal, especially a baby animal, would simply die in my hand. I guess their hearts just stopped beating out of fear. That is an extreme version of response to a perceived threat … one that I have not seen in human beings.

So then, these are the possible physical responses that wild animals may employ when faced with danger: To fight, to flee, to freeze, to act in a fawning manner, to flop (or faint), or simply to lie down and die. I have seen human beings exhibit all but the last response when faced with great stress.

We Humans Are Beginning to Sense the Angst of Our Body Cells During the Ascension Process

Earth’s Ascension is posited to be happening because of our Solar System’s entry into the Photon Belt … the greater Light of the Pleiades … during the 2012 Shift.

Image: “The Pleiades,” by NASA, ESA, AURA/Caltech, Palomar Observatory, 1 June 2004, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pleiades_large.png … public domain … DESCRIPTION: “The Pleiades, an open cluster consisting of approximately 3,000 stars at a distance of 400 light-years (120 parsecs) from Earth in the constellation of Taurus. It is also known as ‘The Seven Sisters’, or the astronomical designations NGC 1432/35 and M45.”

It is also known as ‘The Seven Sisters’, or the astronomical designations NGC 1432/35 and M45.”

. . . . .

When the 2012 Shift occurred and the greater Light of the Pleiades began to bless our planet, the Ascension process began on our beloved planet Earth. That is the lore that we Lightworkers, pathfinders, wayshowers and healers have to provide regarding the many changes that are taking place on Earth today.

Since 2012, every being on Earth has changed. Not the least of these are the tiny beings we think of as our body cells. Each of us human beings has about 30 trillion of these tiny, helpful beings in our care as we live out our lives on Earth.

Our body cells sing ‘the body electric’ even more clearly than we human beings do. They are intimately attuned to changes in their own electric fields. They communicate with each other with ‘electrical phone lines’. This intercellular ‘Light speak’ is, I feel, essential to their coordination of human bodily function.

The body cells are very, very conservative. Any little prospect of change throws them into a tizzy. Being flooded with ramped-up photonic Light during a Solar Event is one such stimulus, and one that humankind is beginning to be aware of due to the fact that we are slowly but surely becoming clairly EMF-sensitive because of the changes in the Incoming Light since the 2012 Shift.

As we humans become more gifted with clair abilities such as clairaudience, clairvoyance, and EMF sensitivity (which is to say, Light sensitivity), we begin to notice the angst felt by our trillions of body cells when changes occur in Earth’s magnetosphere.

Changes in Earth’s magnetosphere are, in the main, the result of Solar events such as geostorms and solar winds. These events occur most frequently during Solar Maximums such as we are now experiencing here on Earth.

As the Solar activity during Solar Maximums …

… and the changes in our planet’s Light caused by annual Solar events such as the solstices and equinoxes …

… engulf and transform our planet, often without our conscious Awareness, our bodies will go into fight, flight, freeze, fawn or flop mode. Why is that?

Here is one reason that is often overlooked: Our body cells sense these Solar events as disruptions in their mutual ‘Light speak’. It is their feeling that all is not right in their world during magnetospheric fluctuations that greatly amp up our human fight, flight, freeze, fawn or flop response during post-Shift Solar events.

Now that humankind is clairly gifted, our sense of our body cells’ angst at these times can make our own response to these events 30 trillion times more intense – or thereabouts!

Solar Maximums and Solar Events Bless Us with Many Ascension Gifts

Here in this earthly realm of Duality, Solar Maximums and solar events have their pluses as well as their minuses. We may be feeling stressed out during these times, without being able to put a finger on the why and wherefore of it. But the temporary changes in our electric fields during these events herald our transformation to a state of being that we Lightworkers term the New Human. Here is just a little about how this transformation is taking place …

One of our subtle bodies is the body of Light …

. . . . .

Saturation of this subtle body with the Incoming Light is all for the good, as the amped up Light is said to instruct our DNA on how to unfold from the 2-strand ramped-down mode that keeps our physical bodies functional during the Great Ages of Darkness to the full 12-strand state we can enjoy during the current Age of Light. That is the current Lightworker lore.

The Great Ages of Darkness are said to last 10,500 very long years; and the Ages of Light are said to last 2,000 years …

Link: “The Photon Belt: The Coming of a New Age,” from Burlington News … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/universo/esp_cinturon_fotones_6.htm

The most recent Great Age of Darkness is said to have ended in December 2012, and so now our DNA is thought to be unfurling once again …

. . . . .

Expansion of our DNA is, I feel, a great gift to humankind. It is a gift that is sought after by many during the Great Ages of Darkness, with nearly no success. But during this Great Age of Light, this gift is available to everyone on Earth. I speak with confidence, Dear Reader, even though science has not yet stepped up to the plate in this regard. That is because I myself have felt, within my own energy field, the miracles that occur during Light upgrades.

Here are some of the good things that can occur as the Incoming Light unfurls our DNA …

We begin to access our Ascension benefits. For more on this, see my blog category: Ascension benefits

Summary

To be concise, these wonderful new Ascension gifts depend upon expansion of our DNA during post-Shift Solar events, especially during Solar Maximums such as that we are now experiencing here on Earth.

However, the kicking in of the fight, fight, freeze, fawn or flop responses, which are based on animal survival mechanisms, is causing some uncomfortable effects during the DNA amp-up process.

I have noticed a few more drawbacks to the process of change upon which humankind has so recently embarked. These will be discussed in “Enlightenment II,” which is referenced at the beginning of this blog. ccc

Ascension Symptoms, Astral Chatter, Acting Out, the Glom Effect, and Mass Hysteria

Introduction

This section describes some of the drawbacks of the Ascension process. For instance …

  • Those who have been gifted with clair abilities during the Ascension process may experience what Lightworkers term ‘Ascension symptoms’.
  • During periods of noospheric dissonance, those among us who are now clairvoyant are likely to hear what I term negatively aspected ‘astral chatter’.
  • This astral chatter can goad people to acts of violence. This is true not just for telepaths, but also for people who only subconsciously sense the circulating thought forms of this world. I term this ‘acting out’.
  • Because of what I have dubbed the ‘glom effect’, astral stories well up in the collective subconscious and find expression as collectively experienced violent daydreams and night dreams.
  • The glom effect can lead … and in fact has led … to incidents of mass hysteria or ‘mass psychogenic illness’, often on a small scale, but sometimes on a scale that is grand indeed. Perusal of the newspaper headlines since the 2012 Shift provides a ‘heads up’ as to the mass hysterical incidents we need to sidestep in order to be safe during these times of change.

There is more on each of these below …

Ascension Symptoms

Discerning people have noted a host of physical, mental and emotional ‘Ascension symptoms’ …

The words on the image above reads …

ASCENSION SYMPTOMS
– stressed-out feeling
– insomnia
– or sleeping for a long time
– vivid or violent dreams
– loss of appetite
– or greater desire to eat
– aches and pains
– ultra-heightened physical senses
– emotional ups and downs
– memory loss
– intolerance for the ordinary
– feeling of not belonging
– experience of being outcast
– wanting to ‘go home’
– time and space ‘skips and skids’

Most of the items on the list are from a wonderful blog put together by Cedar Rivers in the early days of the Shift, and still available online today …

Link: “Ascension Upgrades – From Homo Sapien to Homo Luminous,” by Cedar Rivers … https://www.cedar-rivers.com/articles/consciousness-spirituality/70-ascension-symptoms-from-homo-sapien-to-homo-luminous.html .. 

At this moment it might be good to highlight the last four items on the list. These are intolerance for the ordinary, a feeling of not belonging, the experience of being outcase, wanting to ‘go home’, and the temporal and dimensional ‘skips and skids’ that occur as we begin to wield our mighty new multidimensional and multitemporal Ascensioneer skills.

This image, I feel, provides a clue about how to hold these feelings in a context that is uplifting and which offers a way out of feelings of social isolation during these difficult times. My thoughts on the relevance of the painting are in the Comments below …

Unlike the eunuch in the painting, we may still have our Earth families, or we may have the prospect of having a real-life Earth family. But the love that we feel for them flows, with the help of the Angelic Realm, through our Spirits to that vast realm of God consciousness, and back again into those we love. –Alice B. Clagett.

In my own writings, I use the terms ‘Ascension benefits’ and ‘Ascension symptoms’ for some of the good and bad things I have been experiencing post-Shift. For more on these, search my blog categories: Ascension benefits  … and …  Ascension symptoms

Noospheric Dissonance and Astral Chatter

COMMENT: To me, this looks like what I term ‘noospheric dissonance’. –Alice B. Clagett

. . . . .

I have found that there are post-Shift issues with astral chatter (super-sensitization to telepathy, both human and non-human). Some people are aware of these issues; others are just awakening to Awareness of these issues; and quite a few people are experiencing the symptoms, but as yet only on a subconscious level.

Acting Out

Because for many people on Earth today there is subconscious turmoil going on, there can be a feeling of being ‘goaded’ into ‘acting out’ of astral stories and collectively subconsciously produced vivid waking dreams. To find out more about this, see my blog category: Acting out

The Glom Effect

There is a phenomenon that I term the ‘glom effect’ …

COMMENT: This seems to me to be a good representation of the daydreaming and night-dreaming astral phenomenon I dub the ‘glom effect’. –Alice B. Clagett

. . . . .

Briefly, it seems to me that the glom effect takes place when groups of people daydream together, or when they have dreams together while sleeping. I say this because, as a telepath, on the astral plane I often hear people glomming together in their daydreams and in their nightly dreams.

This glomming of thought forms seems to be a unique feature of Earth life. It appears to me, from my telepathic observations of gloms, that these gloms help communities of human beings adhere together and resolve problems that arise in the communities …

, , , , ,

How this may occur appears to me to be through the action of the people’s superconscious minds on their subconscious and unconscious minds while the people are in a dream state.

Most people are as yet unable to take it on faith that they have a superconscious mind, but the healing and restorative effect of people daydreaming and night-dreaming together implies that such a mind exists …

In a famous quote in his play “Macbeth,” Shakespeare referred to “Sleep that knits up the raveled sleeve of care, / The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath, / Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course, / Chief nourisher in life’s feast.”

If the meter or rhythm of the passage allowed it, I feel he might have substituted ‘the superconscious mind’ for the word ‘sleep’. Then I would have completely agreed with him. It is, I feel, the superconscious mind, acting upon our energy fields while we sleep, that directs our life’s play, healing the wounds of yesterday, and readying us for each new day.

For the psychiatrists and psychologists among my readers, here is a thought: Might it not be that Jung’s concept of self-actualization presupposes the existence of a superconscious mind in each of us? I feel this to be true, and my observations of the glom effect that occurs in other people while they dream together support my understanding that all people’s minds include a guiding, healing, and restorative superconscious mind as well … though, truth to tell, it seems that very few people are aware of this …

As many have said, Earth is the school of Duality. Where great benefits are to be had, there may be great drawbacks as well. I have described above these post-Shift phenomena: What is termed by others ‘noospheric dissonance’ and what I term ‘astral chatter’, ‘acting out’, and the ‘glom effect’.

These are factors in what might be termed ‘shared vivid waking dreams’ that seem to have been rising to the Awareness of many people since the 2012 Shift. It seems to me that these ‘shared vivid waking dreams’ might be akin to what psychologists and psychiatrists term ‘mass hysteria’ or ‘mass psychogenic illness’. Sometimes these shared vivid waking dreams are simply suffered through on the astral plane by a group of people. Other times emotional momentum builds up on the astral plane, and one or two people … or maybe many people … ‘act out’ on the physical plane some aspect of the ‘shared vivid waking dreams’ …

For those of my readers who are clairaudient, this hypothesis of mine can be validated (or invalidated, as the case may be) by journaling what seem to be ‘shared vivid waking dreams’ rampaging about through the noosphere, and then checking the newspaper headlines to find out if the dreams have been ‘acted out’.

Government-Localized Mass Hysteria – Russian Invasion of Ukraine. One such instance of mass hysteria, I feel, is Russia’s incursion into the Ukraine in February 2022. I feel certain this incursion had to do with Ascension symptoms experienced by Russian leaders, who, by God’s grace, seem to me now, as of this writing in September 2022, to be stepping back from that aggressive stance.

What a price has been paid, in terms of human suffering, by this instance of a ‘shared vivid waking dream’ to do with soldierly honor and willingness to suffer for one’s country! Is it not so?

Global Mass Hysteria – Panic Response to COVID Pandemic. Here is what I feel to be another instance of mass hysteria: I feel certain that my discerning readers have noticed great masses of people … including those who make the laws in government … exhibiting this or that stress response to the COVID pandemic of March 2020. Like all the people on Earth today, some of our lawmakers responded to the COVID pandemic by fighting, or by fleeing, or through the freeze, fawn, or flop responses.

I noticed only yesterday, in mid-September 2022, that those who make the laws for my California county have finally snapped out of the freeze response and repealed a clearly illegal tenant eviction protection law that has been in place since near the beginning of the COVID pandemic.

I also feel a case could be made for the COVID pandemic globally as an instance of mass hysteria egged on by catastrophic media reports …

. . . . .

In the instance of the Western town, I was able to change locations and escape the mass hysteria. But in the current Solar Maximum, and what with the goading of mass media, the COVID mass hysteria has been a global event.

To what destination may an awakened human being flee, in such an instance? How can the awakened human being fight everyone on the globe? What good are the freeze, fawn and flop responses to the awakened human during such a global catastrophe? They are very little use at all, I feel.

During instances of mass hysteria to do with the Ascension process … during Solar events post-Shift, such as the solstices, equinoxes and gateways … and especially now, during the geostorms and solar wind gusts of the Solar Maximum … I feel it would be good to avoid the fight, fight, freeze, fawn or flop responses.

If we become aware that we are responding aggressively to everyday situations, or overly anxious, or just feel like withdrawing and hiding from it all, there are very simple remedies, which have to do with the breath and the ancient science of yoga (the yoking of our energy fields with the Universe and with God). The why, the ‘wherefore’, and the ‘how-to’ are coming up next …

The Human Personal Energy Field: Power Currents and Energy Centers

In this section I have picked and chosen those yogic and Lightworker techniques that help me to attain ‘neutral mind’. I have added an overlay of understanding that I feel helps synthesize the teachings of those who channel Ascension lore with the ancient esoteric teachings. Insofar as possible, I have dovetailed in what information I could glean from psychology, psychiatry, and human biology. Then where it seems the Creative Commons and public domain images available online might be more simply depicted, I have added new images for my readers’ perusal.

Let’s begin at the beginning: The human personal energy field has within it power currents (‘nerve currents’ or ‘nadis’) and energy centers (chakras).

There are three main power currents in the human personal energy field. Depicted is the first of these, the sushumna, through which flows the central vertical power current or ‘kundalini’ of the human energy field. The sushumna is shown as a column of white Light that runs vertically along the spine …

Along the central vertical power current run the main energy centers or ‘chakras’ of the human energy field. In the image below, personal chakras 1 through 7 (those within the torso) are depicted as spheres of Light. The colors, from lowest to highest, are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet …

There are three main power currents (‘nerve currents’ or ‘nadis’) in the human personal energy field. These are the ida, the pingala, and the sushumna. The sushumna is shown as a column of white light that runs vertically along the spine. Through the sushumna flows the central vertical power current or ‘kundalini’ of the human energy field. The ida is shown as a wavy white line of light originating at the left side of the base of the spine, coursing upward through the chakras to the third-eye point (6th chakra). The cooling and relaxing energy of the ida courses through the left nostril. The pingala is shown as a wavy tawny-colored line of light originating at the right side of the base of the spine, coursing upward through the chakras to the third-eye point (6th chakra). The warming and invigorating energy of the pingala courses through the right nostril. Personal chakras 1 through 7 (those within the torso) are depicted as spheres of light. The colors, from lowest to highest, are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The indigo sphere of light at the level of the eyebrows (or slightly higher) represents the third-eye point (the 6th chakra or ‘ajna’). The violet sphere of light at the top of the head represents the crown chakra (the 7th chakra or ‘many-petaled lotus’).

About the Sushumna

As mentioned above, the sushumna is the central channel through which the central vertical power current (the ‘kundalini’ energy) is able to rise after the energies of the ida and the pingala are evenly balanced.

Entwined with the energy of the sushumna are the power currents termed the ida and the pingala. These two energies have qualities very different, each from the other.

Qualities of the Ida

The energy of the ida, which is stimulated by left-nostril breathing, is associated with …

  • the moon, the feminine side of our personalities
  • the color white
  • comfort, coolness, and nurturing
  • control of mental processes
  • the right side of brain, and intuitive thought
  • and the sympathetic nervous system, which activates the fight-or-flight response

Qualities of the Pingala

The energy of the pingala, which is stimulated by right-nostril breathing, is associated with …

  • the sun, the masculine side of our personalities
  • the color red
  • tawniness, warmth, stimulation
  • control of vital somatic processes
  • the left side of brain, and logical thought
  • the parasympathetic nervous system, which relaxes the body; this relaxation may, I feel, be a factor in the freeze, fawn, and flop responses

How the Subconscious Mind and the Autonomic Nervous System Relate to the Ida and the Pingala

Here is an image of the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems, which are the two parts of the autonomic nervous system (the ANS) …

Image: “Diagram of efferent sympathetic (red) and parasympathetic (blue) nervous system, by Henry Vandyke Carter (1831-1897).

DESCRIPTION: Schematic view of the human autonomic system, showing the sensor and motor subsystems and their connection to the brain. 

The subconscious mind, known in esoteric lore as the lower mental body and in my work as the ‘gut brain’, is associated with the autonomic nervous system …

Link: “Autonomic Nervous System,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomic_nervous_system .. 

According to modern medical lore, the autonomic nervous system consists of the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

The action of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems is ‘opposite’ or ‘antagonistic’. That is to say: They have opposing effects. These effects may be likened to the qualities of the ida and pingala power currents that entwine along the sushumna.

The sympathetic nervous system is said to be associated with the fight-or-flight responses of the subconscious mind. Thus it is related to the pingala energy of kundalini yoga.

The parasympathetic nervous system is said to be associated with the ‘freeze-and-dissociate’, ‘rest and digest’ and ‘feed and breed’ functions of the subconscious mind. Thus it is related to the ida energy of kundalini yoga.

As mentioned above, the ida is associated with breathing through the left nostril; and the pingala is associated with breathing through the right nostril. Thus I find, in my personal yogic practice, that stimulation of the ida through left-nostril breathing will stimulate the freeze response of the parasympathetic nervous system. I feel it may also factor into the fawn response and the flop response to perceived threat.

Contrarily, stimulation of the pingala through right-nostril breathing, I find, will stimulate the fight-or-flight response of the sympathetic nervous system.

If you find this to be true (as did I), then you will have at hand a means of changing up your response to Solstice and Equinoctial energies, gateway events, and geostorms: By consciously breathing through the left nostril only, you can move out of the fight-or-flight response, and into the freeze response. (More on left-nostril breathing and right-nostril breathing below.)

Our human breath naturally alternates between the left and right nostril during the day. Some people report the interval for coursing of the breath through one nostril as 20 minutes, and others, as much as two and a half hours. The alternation of the breath from nostril to nostril is nature’s way of balancing the energies of the ida and the pingala as they course along the spine.

Rather than wait that long to attain a balance of ida and pingala, we can consciously switch from left nostril breathing to right nostril breathing, and back again. This technique, which is called ‘alternate nostril breathing’, I find to be a sure way to deal with Solstice and Equinoctial energies, gateway events, and geostorms. More on alternate nostril breathing (and the companion technique known as ‘Long Deep Breathing’) below.

How to Inhibit the Fight-or-Flight and Freeze-Fawn-and-Flop Responses Through Yogic Breath

Putting it all together, we can consciously change the operation of the autonomic nervous system … and the subconscious mind … by practicing left-nostril or right-nostril breathing.

Left-Nostril Breathing inhibits the Fight-or-Flight Response

Left-nostril breathing has a calming, relaxing effect. It is easily practiced, even by a novice to the science of yoga …

While first learning left-nostril breathing, use the thumb of the right hand to close off the right nostril. The mouth is also closed. This forces the breath through the left nostril. The other fingers of the right hand are pointed up, like antennae.

After awhile, I found it is possible to switch to left-nostril breathing by simply placing the Awareness on the left nostril, and feeling the breath there … the hand pose will no longer be needed.

Right-Nostril Breathing inhibits the Freeze, Fawn, and Flop Responses

Right-nostril breathing has an energizing effect. Thus it inhibits the freeze response, and also, I feel, the fawn response and the flop response. It is practiced like this …

While first learning right-nostril breathing, use the thumb of the left hand to close off the left nostril. The mouth is also closed. This forces the breath through the right nostril. The other fingers of the left hand are pointed up, like antennae.

In time, I found, it is possible to switch to right-nostril breathing by simply placing the Awareness on the right nostril, and feeling the breath there … the hand pose will no longer be needed.

Long Deep Breathing Creates the Yogic State of ‘Neutral Mind’

Both the fight-or-flight response and the freeze response can be suppressed through the yogic technique known as Long Deep Breathing. When the breath becomes long and deep, the feeling of the person facing stressful events becomes less involved in the outcome. The person becomes the neutral witness of the events that are unfolding. This is the yogic state known as ‘neutral mind’.

How to Achieve Unity of Mind or ‘One Mind’

The Somatic Nervous System

As human beings, we have several different nervous systems. We have the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, which have to do with the function of the autonomic nervous system (as discussed above).

And we have another nervous system that is under voluntary control, and which allows us to consciously control our body movements. This is the somatic nervous system …

Link: “Somatic Nervous System,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somatic_nervous_system .. 

Just as the autonomic nervous system is associated with what is known in esoteric lore as the lower mental body, the somatic nervous system is associated with what is known in esoteric lore as the higher mental body. In my own work, I term these the subconscious mind or ‘gut brain’ and the conscious mind, respectively.

As mentioned above, the autonomic nervous system has two aspects, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, which are associated with the ida and pingala, respectively;  and these are associated with the left and right nostril, and (in opposite fashion) with the right and left hemispheres of the brain, respectively,

Alternate Nostril Breathing Links the Subconscious Mind to the Conscious Mind

Alternate nostril breathing is a yogic technique that brings the ida and the pingala to the Light of Awareness. In terms of physiology, alternate nostril breathing links or hooks the autonomic nervous system to the somatic nervous system. In terms of esoteric lore, alternate nostril breathing unites the subtle bodies termed the lower mental body and the higher mental body.  In my own parlance, alternate nostril breathing brings the subconscious mind under the control of the conscious mind.

Here are the steps to take in order to practice alternate nostril breathing …

  1. First, use the right hand to block off the right nostril. The fingers of the right hand are held up, like antennae. (See the image “Alternate Nostril Breathing: Step 1” below.) Inhale long and deep through the left nostril.

  1. Next, release the block on the right nostril, Use the ring finger or index finger of the right hand to block the left nostril. (See the image ‘”Alternate Nostril Breathing: Step 2″ below.) Exhale long and deep through the right nostril.

  1. Keeping the same finger and hand position, inhale long and deep through the right nostril.
  2. Then switch back to the finger position shown in step 1, and exhale long and deep through the left nostril.

Begin again at Step 1, and continue with this alternate nostril breath for a few minutes, but stop at any time if you begin to feel uncomfortable; and of course, only try the practice on your medical doctor’s advice.

Even Nostril Breathing Unites the Brain Hemispheres So That We Can Experience Cosmic Mind

‘Even nostril breathing’ is a state where the breath flows evenly through both nostrils, uniting the ida and pingala, and uniting the right and left hemispheres of the brain. The result is what has been called ‘Cosmic Mind’ or ‘Universal Mind’. This was the form of Enlightenment available to human beings before the Ascension process that began on Earth in the year 2012.

All the yogic breathing techniques or pranayama, as they were called in ancient India, are described in this article by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati …

Link: “Breathing Practices and Pranayama in Yoga,” by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati https://swamij.com/breath.htm … Search for the term: Balancing Breathing

These breathing practices or pranayama help establish evenness of breath, and also to establish unification of the subconscious and the conscious mind. Yoga poses, mudras and mantras, and yoga sets or kriyas that combine these techniques, can be practiced to achieve the same effect, but with somewhat more difficulty in terms of technique. (For instance, the yoga kriya known as ‘Sat Kriya’ will be coming up in “Enlightenment II,” which is referenced at the beginning of this blog.

Soham Mantra – A Technique for Evenness of Breath. Here is the Soham Mantra technique recommended by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati as a very good aid in establishing evenness of breath …

Imagine the sound Sooooooo when inhaling, and the sound Hummmmmm when exhaling. This mantra can be practiced all day long.

The practice is suggested by Swami Bharati in this article, which also has a discussion of the flow of ida and pingala energy. …

Some sources suggest that a person visualize energy flowing up the spine while imagining the sound Sooooooo and inhaling; and then that a person visualize energy flowing down the spine while imagining the sound Hummmmmm and exhaling. I like this idea very much, as it seems to me that it will even out the ascending and descending forces in the spine. Thus a person may sense all four minds and their related chakras with each act of inhaling and exhaling.

‘Soham’ means “That I Am.” By ‘that’ is meant He [or She, or ‘Father/Mother/God’], the Supreme One who dwells beyond time and space. So I have read. For more on the mantra, see …

Summary

By practicing these breathing techniques, one can unite the subconscious mind with the conscious mind, and one can also unite the hemispheres of the brain. The result is a state of mental unity that lays the foundation for the mystical experience known as Enlightenment.

But what about the unconscious mind and the superconscious mind, as discussed in Section 10 of this blog? How can these two minds be brought to the Light of Awareness? The answer is inn “Enlightenment II” …

I learned about the power currents, energy centers, and locks of the human personal energy field through Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) … https://www.3ho.org/ … Then while practicing kundalini yoga daily for 10 years, I became familiar with sensing these power currents and energy centers within my body, and with utilizing the yogic locks and the 3HO yoga kriyas to raise the kundalini.

The nostril breathing techniques (‘pranayama’, or breathing techniques) are well known in yogic lore.
