1. The day is past and over;
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee!
I pray Thee now that sinless
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And save me through the coming night.

2. The joys of day are over;
I lift my heart to Thee
And ask Thee that offenseless
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me through the coming night.

3. The toils of day are over:
I raise the hymn to Thee
And ask that free from peril
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, make their darkness light
And guard me through the coming night.

4. Lord, that in death I sleep not,
And lest my Foe should say
“I have prevailed against him,”
Lighten mine eyes, I pray.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me through the coming night.

5. Be Thou my Soul’s Preserver,
O God, for Thou dost know
How many are the perils
Through which I have to go.
Lover of men, oh, hear my call
And guard and save me from them all.

2016 HIV Lifetime Risk Statistics from Centers for Disease Control . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 March 2019

………………..
UPDATE as of 28 April 2021

It looks to me like the prevalences (aka ‘risk’) below should have been per 100,000 people. That would make the statistics far lower. I say that because of this recent article …

Dear Ones,

Today I found out that the lifetime risk of HIV infection published by Truvada, and referred to in an earlier blog of mine, originated with a 2016 Centers for Disease Control study which is public domain. Here is the overall report …

CALL TO ACTION: RESEARCH QUESTIONS REGARDING THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA HIV STATISTIC

I note in particular the lifetime risk in the District of Columbia is 1 in 13 people. I have a question as to the cause. Here are my thoughts as to lines of inquiry …

  • As the District of Columbia is a high density urban area, could it be that other high density urban areas in the United States are also among the highest risk?
    • To answer this question, a researcher would have to pull out the relevant statistics for cities from those for rural areas, and see if there is a statistically significant difference between urban and rural areas.
    • Alternatively, we could look at increasing population density in each of the above states, and see if it correlates with increasing risk.
    • If the answer to this question turns out to be ‘yes’, then I ask that researchers look into whether the presence of an international airport or an international port of call in a city increases lifetime risk of infection.
  • Could it be that the District of Columbia has experienced the first of regional ‘HIV blooms’, bell curve increases, and that we might expect the same in other areas? If so, when?
    • To answer this question, we would need to see an annual graph on lifetime risk in the District of Columbia, optimally going back 10 years. If it were found, say, that a District of Columbia ‘bloom’ happened in the time interval from 2014-2016, a three-year time span, then that information would be very helpful in planning for education, prevention and treatment of HIV in other areas of the United States, for a three-year interval starting in 2019.
    • As the CDC data are three years old, and if there was a ‘bloom’ in the District of Columbia from 2014-2016, then we might posit that there has been a similar bloom elsewhere in the United States in the three-year interval from 2016-2019. That might provide a basis for extrapolating to the true current situation in the United States, with regard to the pandemic. My thought is that the current situation might be much more intense than is surmised, and that this discrepancy might be due to the staleness of the CDC statistics and the quick rise in prevalence instanced by the steep slope of the epidemic bell curve (about which I have written in past years).
  • Could it be that the District of Columbia high risk has to do with the presence of international visitors? If so, could this mean that AIDS lifetime risk in other countries has been underreported or underestimated?
    • Another way to assess international visitor risk would be to test all military personnel who have been on away missions.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS BY TRANSMISSION GROUP

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Transmission Group,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

This image is pretty standard, and I feel pretty misleading. For MSM (men having sex with men) the lifetime risk is 1 in 6. For women who inject drugs, 1 in 23. For men who inject drugs, 1 in 36. For heterosexual women, 1 in 241. and for heterosexual men, 1 in 473.

My concerns regarding this table are several. I wonder, for instance, whether the MSM category ought to be rephrased and reanalyzed in terms of men and women who are recipients of rectal sex, and this statistic compared to that for men who are donors of rectal sex.

Also significant would be the extent to which HIV screening varies for the various groups in the table. My thought on this is that we might find that men and women who inject drugs are more frequently tested for HIV concomitant with drug detox protocols instituted through emergency treatment of drug overdoses.

Then with regard to the big difference in the risk for heterosexual women and heterosexual men, how is it that the risk for heterosexual women is so very much greater than that for heterosexual men? Is it that women are more likely to test for HIV than men?

Could it be that a statistically significant portion of men described as heterosexual are bisexual, and are testing separately, under alias, as MSM, so as to avoid social stigma and preserve the appearance of a straight marriage? For such a segment of undeclared bisexual men married to straight women, they might be dosing their wives with HIV prophylactics without their knowledge, or alternatively, their wives may be infected and untreated, largely, I feel, because the CDC risk factors do not include married, straight women.

The question is, how large might a putative, undeclared bisexual and married male segment of the population be? If that were known, then we might better plan for diagnosis and treatment in the coming decade.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS BY RACE/ETHNICITY

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Race/Ethnicity,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

This is a well-known set of statistics. The highest racial-ethnic category with regard to lifetime risk of HIV diagnosis is African American men: 1 in 20. Next are African American women: 1 in 48. Possibly socioeconomic disadvantage may negatively influence prevention and medical care in this group?

Then Hispanic men: 1 in 48 … and Hispanic women, 1 in 227. Guessing that many Hispanic men, being Christian, may be married to Hispanic women, and because of some of the Christian churches’ stance on homosexuality,’ may not be willing to admit homosexual liaisons to their wives. The wives of such men might be at risk and unaware of it, and so, not testing. They might pass on due to AIDS-related issues, without being treated for these issues.

Then for White men, the risk is 1 in 132; whereas, for White women the risk is 1 in 880. Either White women are extremely lucky, in regard to their lifetime HIV risk, or else they decline to test, for reasons of social status. If the latter turns out to be so, then I feel the turning point, for white women, will be when the pandemic reaches such proportions in the United States that it is clear their friends and neighbors have it, and so it will be socially acceptable to test for and treat HIV infection.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS AMONG MSM BY RACE/ETHNICITY

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis among MSM by Race/Ethnicity,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

From this table, the lifetime risk for men having sex with men (MSM) is 50% … 1 in 2 people, for African American MSM. For Hispanic, MSM the risk is half that … 25%, or 1 in 4. For White MSM, the risk is 9%, or 1 in 11.

FOUR SCENARIOS OF THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF EXPANDED HIV TESTING, TREATMENT AND PrEP IN THE UNITED STATES, 2015-2020

I like the below graph very much, as it shows how helpful testing and treatment would be in slowing the progress of the pandemic here in the United States. This slowing of the progress of the disease would, I feel, ease the effect of the pandemic on manpower, and on the U.S. economy. It would also make it easier to provide adequate education and medical care for HIV-infected patients. In terms of human suffering, as well, I feel that optimization of education, prevention, and treatment are of paramount importance.

As can be seen in the below graph, were this optimization to have occurred beginning in 2015, then in 2020 new infections would have been reduced from 265,330 to 80,270. That would have been a reduction of 70% … which is to say, a slowing of the rate of progress of the disease by 70%.

In future five-year intervals, we might expect the same statistic to apply. This, surely, is ample impetus for optimizing HIV education, prevention, and treatment as swiftly and thoroughly as possible.

The first bar shows that at current testing and treatment rates, there would be 265,330 new HIV infections in the U.S between 2015 and 2020.
The second bar shows that increasing the use of PrEP among high-risk populations (40 percent of men-who-have-sex-with-men; 10 percent of injecting drug users; and 10% of high-risk heterosexuals) could avert 48,221 new infections. This would mean that only 217,109 new HIV infections would occur in the U.S. from 2015 to 2020.
The third bar shows that increasing the number of people diagnosed with HIV who are on treatment to 85 percent, and ensuring that 60 percent achieve viral suppression would avert 88,908. Increasing PrEP use among high-risk populations at these higher treatment rates would avert an additional 31,988 new infections, reducing the total number of new HIV infections to 144,434.
The final bar shows that if we achieve the targets of the National HIV / AIDS Strategy (85 percent of people diagnosed are on treatment and 80 percent of those achieve viral suppression), we would avert 168,132 infections, with an additional 16,928 HIV infections prevented if PrEP was used as well, resulting in only 80,270 new HIV infections from 2015 to 2020.

Visualization to Heal and Regenerate the Third-Eye Point . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 24 March 2019

  • VISUALIZATION TO HEAL AND REGENERATE THE THIRD-EYE POINT, channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Last night I channeled and tested a visualization that I found very helpful. Others on the astral plane also participated, and had something to say about it.

I was attempting to do yoga nidra, as a way to avoid EMF buffeting pursuant to the incoming coronal mass ejection, which is slow-moving and may just miss Earth altogether, but was somehow creating a commotion in my electromagnetic field (my aura) anyway.

My feeling is, this may be close to the feeling of yoga nidra, but may represent something else … something new … as well. I spoke with my Ascension team about it, and they said that after I did the visualization, my form was “closer to that I had on arriving.”

I note that the sphere in the below image was at the third-eye point, whose energy supports the subtle body termed the Celestial body (Cosmic mind). I see that, in esoteric terms, this locus is between the crown chakra and the throat chakra, which interface with the Ketheric template and the etheric template, respectively.

By that I gathered the placement of the sphere may have interfaced with my Ketheric template and allowed that to renew my etheric template, which renewed my etheric body and allowed that to renew my physical body in this incarnation. In other words, this may be the mechanism of subtle body interaction that allows sleep to rejuvenate the physical body.

A number of us who were chatting together on the astral plane felt that by using the sphere with other chakras, we might find similar regenesis of that chakra. I tried this by visualizing a sphere out in front of the heart chakra, and found it worked there as well.

Thus I think the sphere may be a placement tool that allows the Ketheric template to direct its healing energy into the etheric template, and from thence to the etheric body, which renews the physical body. It seems to me like pouring of water (that is really Light) from one high cup, into another lower cup (each cup having a slightly different ‘flavor’ of Light), like this image of rain cups …

Image: Rain chain, with water flowing down from cup to cup … http://www.architectureartdesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/1741.jpg ..

I note also that placing the Awareness (that is, your subtle body known as the Monad) inside this sphere, and leaving it there, prevents obsession or possession of the third-eye point by marauding or vampirical astral spirits, or by Dark Souls still in physical form.

. . . . .

VISUALIZATION TO HEAL AND REGENERATE THE THIRD-EYE POINT
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Your third-eye point, which relates to the pituitary gland of the physical body, is centered inside your head, with funnels or vortices of spinning light facing backwards, towards the back of your head, and forwards, towards your forehead.

Imagine a yellow-white sphere or globe of Light in front of and not quite touching the forehead in the area of the third-eye point. Place your Awareness (your subtle body known as the Monad) in the center of that sphere …

Feel a door open in the outer edge of the sphere. From that door, feel energy pouring through the sphere, and into your third-eye point …

Leave your Awareness within the sphere for as long as is comfortable.

Once established, this extra-physical point of Awareness can be accessed instantaneously, whenever it would be helpful to be ‘out of body’ by an inch or two.

It seems to me that the state of consciousness moves, along with the astral form, to a position slightly above the physical body every night, as we enter the rejuvenating process of sleep.

Thus it could be that this visualization will offer a doorway to instant physical rejuvenation, if a person becomes accustomed to using it. Time will tell whether this be true or no.

I note from an experience I had in September 2014 that it is possible for the Soul DNA to reconstitute the physical DNA through the interaction of the Ketheric template with the etheric template of this incarnation …

I realize that work will need to be done to match up our esoteric concepts of the subtle bodies with the post-Shift events now unfolding on Earth. One such area of endeavor is alignment of concept of the Ketheric template (and Soul DNA) with our lists of subtle bodies that accompany incarnation into human form. As yet, I am not sure how this will turn out.
