Compendium: Baptismal Sylph Transforms to Seraph . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 25 February 2019

Dear Ones,

Here is a compendium of blogs on an experience of my baptismal sylph transforming to a seraph, which was something I also had read about in the writings of the School of Theosophy.

  • A sylph is an air elemental, the ‘baby’ or nymphal form of a seraph.
  • A seraph is an angel, one of the highest in the ninefold Christian angelic hierarchy. Its qualities are ardor, light, and purity.

When a child is baptized as a Christian, it is joined by a sylph, which partners with it, and protects its heart, in this world of Duality, from the forces of the Dark.

When the heart of the grown child, through devotion to Christ, and through the ardor of devotion to the Christian ideals of love, hope, and charity, blossoms forth in Christed consciousness, then at the same time the baptismal sylph, with which it has partnered through baptism, blossoms forth into the adult form, the seraph … a great angel of almost unbearable effulgence, from the standpoint of those of us in human form.

From that point onward the Christian is partnered with a member of the angelic realm, its own true seraph, whom it may beckon to help it through life’s tribulations, in time of need.

Here is the compendium …

The Voices the Land Remembers . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 17 February 2019; published on 22 February 2019

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about the voices the land remembers. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

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

Signs in the Sky for the New Year: Dragon of the Air … by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 19 December 2018; published on 20 December 2018

Dear Ones,

Here is a sign in the sky that I observed yesterday: A Dragon of the Air for the New Year, 2019. This was a big cloud that took up maybe a fifth of the arc of the sky. I figure it was trying to send us a message, since it was above the post office parking lot that I saw it …

It looks like a happy, frolicking dragon to me.

I have heard that air dragons purify the air and also purify the minds of human beings …

I consider this a propitious sign for the New Year 2019.

Kelvin-Helmholtz Instabilities and Light Intel from Our Star Brethren … by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 November 2018

  • KELVIN-HELMHOLTZ INSTABILITIES AND LIGHT INTEL FROM OUR STAR BRETHREN
  • THE CONFEDERATION OF PLANETS
  • DOWNLOADS OF INCOMING LIGHT BY THE SOLAR DEVI

Dear Ones,

KELVIN-HELMHOLTZ INSTABILITIES AND LIGHT INTEL FROM OUR STAR BRETHREN

Light bears information, and the electromagnetic field of Earth is a form of Light. I posit that, when the electromagnetic field of Earth manifests the regular motion of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability …

Link: “Kelvin-Helmholtz instability,” by INGV … http://roma2.rm.ingv.it/en/themes/22/magnetic_pulsations/34/kelvin-helmholtz_instability ..

… it can be used to transmit Light intel from the service-to-others beings of the Confederation of Planets.

I say this because I experienced energy waves similar in form to Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds during a communication with Ra-En (who are most likely the Hathors of Earth’s Solar Planes) in 2013 …

Link: “Ra-En,” by Alice B. Clagett, 26 September 2013 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-W2 ..

THE CONFEDERATION OF PLANETS

As I understand it from “The Law of One,” the Confederation of Planets comprises about 53 civilizations within about 500 planets. …

Link:  “Confederation of Planets,” in “The Law of One: The Ra Material” … https://www.lawofone.info/results.php?c=Confederation+of+Planets ..

… whom I mention under the blog category: Star brothers and sisters

I feel it may be that regular motions of the magnetosphere, such as Kelvin-Helmholtz waves, can be used, like electric wires strung across the countryside, for transmission of information. from the far-flung constellations where our our star brethren live. to Earth and her beings …

DOWNLOADS OF INCOMING LIGHT BY THE SOLAR DEVI

This would be on a different order of magnitude from ‘downloads of the Incoming Light’, which are sent to Earth and her beings by the wise and exuberant beings I term Solar Devi, manifesting in the physical realm as solar flares, which carry Light intel as coronal mass ejections (CMEs) to the ‘Council of Nine’, the various planets within our Solar System. For more on this, see my blog category: Council of Nine – sentient beings of our solar system … and also see …

Dear Ones,

This video is far-ranging: nature spirits and devas, bonobos and chimps, the aggression gene, multidimensionality, a fallen tree, the cycle of nature, and your contribution to Planet Earth!

At the end of the video are scenes of California oak and meadowland,  and mountains, along with the poignant instrumental music “Prelude No. 7,” by Chris Zabriskie, CC BY 4.0. There is a Summary after the video; text in green font is not in the video … 

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Well, I went for two walks today, out in the beautiful mountains and nature scenes. I had some talks with the nature spirits, which is always a lot of fun. I happened to have a few cats eye marbles from the dollar store, and I was able to place them where the nature spirits asked me to place them … in four trees.

And I had an amazing conversation with the first nature spirit that I gifted with a marble … I was leaving to go back to my walking group, and she showed me a picture of herself: She was sitting with her arms crossed, and her legs crossed, on top of the marble. And she was saying: I’m guarding my turf!

There were five or six nature faeries that came around from the other trees around there, to look at her beautiful marble. So, she was making her plans. And so that was a lot of fun … just a ton of fun.

And so, that’s not really the topic of my talk. So I placed my last marble in an old oak tree just now, next to an oak tree that has seen valiant, bright, tall, majestic days, and that has fallen into several parts. And now there is just one part left that’s growing. And I had a talk with that one, blessing its days, and thanking it for serving Earth by being here. I might include a little video of that tree

And that is also not the topic of my talk. I wanted to talk a little about a story that someone told me, months ago. She said that there is a type of primate that is like a chimpanzee … I think she said … and it lives on one side of a great river.

And this particular primate … the bonobo … has no warlike instincts. And so, across the river …

There goes Mr. Raven … Bye, dude! Bye! … They don’t much like talking to me. They like talking to each other. They think humans just offer ‘noise interference’. [laughs]

… So on the other side of this great river, she says … which is apparently too wide for them to swim across … is a group of warlike chimps. That’s the story. And so, there have been stories about scientists looking at what it is that makes this one primate unwarlike, and the other primate warlike; I think, with the notion of gene manipulation so that people would become less warlike.

And so but, I have something to say about that, which is not three-dimensional … It’s not from 3D space. It seems to me that this story is a metaphor for the dimensions.

You could think of the place where the chimps live, as three-dimensional Earth. And the river between them, as the fourth dimension … the dreamtime realm. And on the other side, where there is no war, and where there is harmony amongst all the primates: That place is the fifth dimension.

And you know, we’re there now! All we have to do is, in the great power and majesty of our hearts, we decide to switch to that dimension; to cross that stream of the fourth dimension, and find ourselves a place of global harmony. So…

Well so, this is a scene of the majestic tree … [shows fallen oak tree] … a beautiful oak tree that has fallen down. It had a wonderful vantage point in this valley. And so, it looks almost like it has completely passed on.

And of course, in passing on, it offers great value: Nutrient value, and homes for many animals and insects, and like that. So, it’s not like its passing is in vain. But it was such a huge tree at one time; that’s the thing. So, one thing is the past grandeur …

And you can see right here where the tree was … [shows stump] … and then all of this … [shows burned out core of trunk] … Oh, I guess there was a fire, and it destroyed the root part of this big part of the tree.

And apparently over here too … [shows other side of fallen tree] … because on this side there is one big branch. And then over here, there is another huge branch that has passed on. See?

And then over here … [pans left] … the smallest branch that was left, fell down. And then it grew up little sprouts that grew into quite a sizable tree here. And so, when you look at it from far off, you see: What we have here is another oak tree growing. Kind of cool!

So I was talking, actually, to the tree that’s still alive here, and it was mourning the loss of the rest of the tree. It was saying how, once, it was so grand and so huge, and it reached up to the sky, it said. And now there was so little left of it; you know?

And it said it had lost hope, because it missed, actually, the rest of the tree. It missed it: Like the leaves, and the trunk, and all of it. It missed it. And so, it said that the deva had told it that it was soon to pass.

But I had a feel for it. You know, the deva knows best for all the plants in the forest, and all the trees and all of the animals. But nevertheless, I stood here for some time, blessing this very courageous sapling that sprouted up from the remains of what was once grand and great.

And I said to it: You know, why not relate to this tree, over here … [pans left] … You know, this is a beautiful tree that you can relate to. And the deva broke in and said: I know my business, and know the timing of the tree. I know the timing of all things here. Please don’t interfere.

So I thanked the deva. And I thank this beautiful tree. And I thank the cycle of nature that allows all of us to come, and make a contribution to this great planet Earth. And then go on.

Well, everybody: Take care, until next time! Glad you’re here now, with me, and with all humankind, in this cycle, on planet Earth. And I know that your contribution … like the contribution of this wonderful oak tree … is going to be absolutely magnificent.

Dear Ones,

Here’s information on nature spirits from various sources:

ELEMENTALS

“An elemental is a mythic being described in occult and alchemical works from around the time of the European Renaissance and particularly elaborated in the 16th century works of Paracelsus. There are four elemental categories: gnomes, undinessylphs, and salamanders.[1] These correspond to the Classical elements of antiquity: earth, water, air and fire. Aether (quintessence) was not assigned an elemental. Terms employed for beings associated with alchemical elements vary by source and gloss….

“Universally, an elemental is a type of magical entity who personifies a force of nature and controls natural powers derived from their element.

“Within the Paracelsian concept an elemental is a mythic being described in occult and alchemical works from around the time of the European Renaissance and particularly elaborated in the 16th century works of Paracelsus. From the classical Paracelsian perspective there are four elemental categories: gnomesundinessylphs, and salamanders.[1] These correspond to the Classical elements of antiquity: earthwaterair and fireAether (quintessence) was not assigned an elemental. Terms employed for beings associated with alchemical elements vary by source and gloss.

“Paracelsus … noted that undines are similar to humans in size, while sylphs are rougher, coarser, longer, and stronger. Gnomes are short, while salamanders are long, narrow, and lean. The elementals are said to be able to move through their own elements as human beings move through air. Gnomes, for example, can move through rocks, walls, and soil. Sylphs are the closest to humans in his conception because they move through air like we do, while in fire they burn, in water they drown, and in earth, they get stuck. Paracelsus states that each one stays healthy in its particular ‘chaos,’ as he terms it, but dies in the others.”

[His size evaluations don’t entirely match mine. –Alice B. Clagett]

“Paracelsus conceived human beings to be composed of three parts, an elemental body, a sidereal spirit, and an immortal divine soul. Elementals lacked this last part, the immortal soul. However, by marriage with a human being, the elemental and its offspring could gain a soul.”

Earth Fae are also called dryads, dwarfs, gnomes, ents, ghillie dhu, muggle-borns, or yaksha. These sorts of Elemental Fae are rarely seen, as they live deep in the woods. Here is more on their form, whether they can mate with humans, and what hybrid children of Earth Faes and humans are like …

I’ve heard that the ruler of the Salamanders might be the Jinn … although the term is spelt ‘Djin’ in this reference … LInk: “The Elemental Kingdom,” at Bibliotecapleyades, https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/mapas_ocultotierra/esp_mapa_ocultotierra_6a.htm ..

This may be because, in Islamic theology, the Jinn are said to be made of a ‘mixture of fire’ or made of ‘smokeless fire’. –from “Jinn,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinn .. From my own experience, I would say that the Jinn are like both fire and wind. –Alice B. Clagett

UNDINES … NAIADS … WATER ELEMENTALS

The above painting is from the classical tale of Hylas and the Nymphs, which is part of the story of Jason and the Argonauts, who searched for the Golden Fleece. For more on this, see …

Link: “Hylas and the Nymphs,” in Artble, https://www.artble.com/artists/john_william_waterhouse/paintings/hylas_and_the_nymphs ..

There are different names for Undines, including Water Spirits, Limoniades, Naiads, Mermaids, Oreads, Potamides, Oceanids, and Sea Maids. –from “The Elemental Kingdom,” at Bibliotecapleyades, https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/mapas_ocultotierra/esp_mapa_ocultotierra_6a.htm ..

Information on each of these can be found on Wikipedia. Below are the Wikipedia descriptions of Undines and Naiads.

“Undines /ˈʌnˌdnˌʌnˈdn/ (or ondines) are a category of elemental beings associated with water, first named in the alchemical writings of Paracelsus. Similar creatures are found in classical literature, particularly Ovid‘s Metamorphoses. Later writers developed the undine into a water nymph in its own right, and it continues to live in modern literature and art through such adaptations as Hans Christian Andersen‘s ‘The Little Mermaid‘.

“Undines are almost invariably depicted as being female, and are usually found in forest pools and waterfalls. The group contains many species, including nereideslimnadsnaiades and mermaids. Although resembling humans in form, they lack a human soul, so to achieve immortality they must acquire one by marrying a human. Such a union is not without risk for the man, because if he is unfaithful he is fated to die.” –from “Undines,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undine … CC BY-SA 3.0

……

“In Greek mythology, the Naiads (/ˈnædz, –ədz/Greek: Ναϊάδες) are a type of female spirit, or nymph, presiding over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water.

“They are distinct from river gods, who embodied rivers, and the very ancient spirits that inhabited the still waters of marshes, ponds and lagoon-lakes, such as pre-Mycenaean Lerna in the Argolis.

“Naiads were associated with fresh water, as the Oceanids were with saltwater and the Nereids specifically with the Mediterranean, but because the ancient Greeks thought of the world’s waters as all one system, which percolated in from the sea in deep cavernous spaces within the earth, there was some overlap. Arethusa, the nymph of a spring, could make her way through subterranean flows from the Peloponnesus, to surface on the island of Sicily.” –from “Naiads,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naiad ..

HOW DIFFERENT SORTS OF ELEMENTALS RELATE TO DIFFERENT SORTS OF HUMANS

“For when the Fair in all their Pride expire,
To their first Elements the Souls retire:
>The Sprites of fiery Termagants in Flame
Mount up, and take a Salamander’s name.
Soft yielding minds to Water glide away,
>And sip, with Nymphs, their elemental Tea.
The graver Prude sinks downward to a Gnome,
In search of mischief still on Earth to roam.
The light Coquettes in Sylphs aloft repair,
And sport and flutter in the fields of Air.”
— Alexander Pope, the Rape of the Lock, Canto 1, 1714 … public domain
