SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I am out here in the country again, near Ojai … actually, Santa Paula right now. And I had a story to tell about the voices that the land remembers.

Here in Southern California there are still tracts of land that are farm land. So I go and visit those, if they are open to the public; or if they are near a public road, and I can stop by. Now and again I find, that if the land is still enough … if there are no cars going by, and like that … and if I ask questions of the land … the owners of the land, who have tended it carefully and cared for it for their lifetime … like farmers, sometimes, who either are living or have already passed on … I will hear their voices.

It is as if the land itself remembers their voices, and the love they have for the land and the trees and the sky. And I can hear their stories, if I ask.

Just now I was asking the person that owned this land, whose crops I often come and bless … I was asking whether he owned the far mountain over there … because, he had said priorly, he owned the mountains on the other side.

I could hear the voice so gentle and deep and well grounded … a very slow, quiet voice, but very masculine, you know … as if he took the land on as a great responsibility, and was proud to have it, and was proud to care for it … that kind of a feeling.

And he said: Oh, that mountain there was owned by the other farm … and he named the name of the people that used to own it. But, he said, the people that own it now, they go by a different name.

Just, I think, for those of us that find ourselves able to care of the land, as farmers or ranchers or like that, it is good to know that our noble thoughts regarding caring for the Earth are remembered by her for ages to come … and that any can hear, that wish to hear, of the duty that we felt towards Earth’s nurturing.

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