Lightworker Alert: A Way to Defeat the Demon Realm in the Cities of Earth . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 27 April 2018; published on 30 April 2018

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • Sidebar: Children of the Day – Children of the Night
    • Credits

Dear Ones,

Here is a sweet way to defeat the Demon Realm in the cities of Earth, with the help of the nature spirits. It will take about 24 hours after the Lightworker implements the plan, for his or her local city to be freed of the Demon Realm. Then, I suggest, if there is a later incursion, it may be necessary to implement the plan again. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones,

It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

This is a Lightworker alert; it has to do with a way to defeat the Demon Realm in the cities of Earth right now. We can all do this … those of us that live in or near cities. We can do this right away, and solve this problem.

As you know, there is an ‘Army of the Night’. And when the Army of the Night comes out, the devas have asked the nature spirits to hide, because of the danger of having them malwared up. So, to protect them, they have asked that.

For a description of the Children of the Day and the Children of the Night, which, according to Eastern scriptures, are the Devas (and their children the nature spirits) and the Asuras (the evil demons), see …

I just found out there is a way to bless our Earth during this nightime. During the daytime, let us ask the nature spirits in our city to bless the moths … which come out at night … with peace and love and joy. Then, when they wake up at night, and flutter around, every time they go past one of the members of the Demon Realm, they will send out … like ‘faerie dust’ … peace and love and joy.

And that will send those demons packing, and clean up the cities of Earth within a day, I feel. Or so it seemed to do in Los Angeles,

We can repeat this every once in a while, I feel, whenever astrological conditions are appropriate …

I just did it. My nature spirits were overwhelmed with happiness over it. They were tickled pink. So they did it right away.

I wish you luck with suggesting this during the daytime to the nature spirits in your city.

Oh … checking out the number of moths compared to butterflies on Earth today: It is astounding! According to Wikipedia, there are about 18,500 species of butterflies worldwide, as compared to about 160,000 species of moths.

Dear Ones,

Here are two videos on the chant, “You’re welcome to your thoughts,” which can be used to waft the unwanted thoughts of other people … like big, lumbering butterflies … out of your head and back into theirs.

The first video offers a description of thought forms, and a spoken version of the chant. The second video offers a sung version of the chant and a video clip of Rincon Beach in California. There are edited Summaries after the videos …

VIDEO 1 BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF VIDEO 1

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

I have something that has proved extremely helpful, in the last day, to fend off thought forms from other people, that seem to be obnoxious, or upsetting, or that cause the heart to falter or to tighten up … like that. The kind of thoughts that are the opposite of heart Awareness thoughts.

Where the Thoughts that Assail You Come From 

  • And these may even come from friends and family … people that we know … but from different timelines and dimensions that they are not expressing in your Awareness timeline.
  • You never know. They may come from the world at large.
  • Or from mass media that everyone is watching at once.
  • And they might be simply free floating thoughts … which happens once in a while …

On Coming Upon Clouds of Thoughts

  • You are walking past a place of business, and you come across thoughts that have been piling up and just hanging out there in swarms and clouds.
  • Or in some places where people are angry, it is like walking into a swarm of angry hornets. You know?
  • And if you walk into a church or place of worship, or like that, you are likely to be assailed by sweet, kind, peaceful thoughts. You know?

On Belief Thought Forms

There are thought forms everywhere. and there are also belief thought forms everywhere.

For instance, every church has its special belief thought forms. You may want to just go in for a quiet moment, in which case you do not want to get involved in the beliefs, you know? Like that.

How to Send Thought Forms Lumbering Off

So: Thought forms … good or bad … Here is the solution; it is ever so simple. You sense the thought incoming, and you say …

. . . . .

“Affirmation: Welcome to Your Thoughts”
by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Lyrics
16 January 2018

 

You are welcome to your thoughts!

. . . . .

And imagine the person that sent the thoughts. Just imagine a warm feeling in your own heart. And imagine them receiving their own thoughts, and having their own thoughts, and being entitled to their own thoughts.

So, all you are saying is: You are welcome to your thoughts! You are welcome to your thoughts! … Slowly, kindly, sweetly …

On Batting Back Other People’s Thought Forms

And it works much better than that ‘batting them back’ thing that I sometimes find myself doing when I am very annoyed by other people’s repetitive thoughts and so forth …

  • Thoughts that are intended to ‘get my goat’ …
  • Game-playing thoughts; ‘gamester’ thoughts, and like that. And my heart will tighten up because I do not know what to do; I do not know what the game is. You know?

Other People’s Motives, Expressed in Their Thoughts

Or it may be motives that are very different from my own motives. My motive might be to keep my heart always open, so as to be a beacon of joy for the world, right?

But other people have all different kinds of agendas. They might be acting out of …

  • jealousy, or
  • greed, or
  • anger, or even
  • rage, or
  • fear, or
  • anxiety, or
  • feeling caught in karmic circumstances ..

… Just a lot of different things that are within their thought field, you know? These are the thoughts that they are emitting all the time. Or …

  • Believe what I believe, or else! That kind of thing, you know?
  • Or: I have my heart open, and your heart is less open! And so therefore …! … One-upmanship, and things like that.
  • Or: I have lots of money, and you do not! So therefore …!

That is the scoop; is just to say: You are welcome to your thoughts! … And do not make it sound like you belittle them, or anything. But let them feel that they are entitled to the liberty of their own thoughts … of thinking their own thoughts. And that way it becomes a very positive force in the world. It becomes a space where the unity and harmony of New Earth can exist.

Martian Space Station Game . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 22 April 2014; published on 30 November 2016; revised on 9 July 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • Martian Space Station Game
    • Activation of Light to Deport Hostile Life Forms, channeled by Alice B. Clagett, 22 April 2014
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about a Martian Space Station game I made up before I knew the Martians were 3D / 4D bacteria. This is to name yourself commander of your own Space Station (human body). Now that I know it is about bacteria, I am more easygoing about the whole thing. Back in April 2015, I used this game to lighten up on the concept of my body being other life forms’ ‘Space Station’.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I think it is a purple grackle over there, making quite a bit of noise.

Martian Space Station Game

I have a fun game for you, for when you spot lower fourth dimensional entities; lower astral entities. (1) And you would rather not have them around, right? So it is a game of pretend …

Pretend that I am a ‘space station’. And I have named my station ‘Transformation’. So this (my body) is Space Station Transformation.

Now if you want to name yourself a space station, you might want to use a different name, such as Space Station Gratitude, or whatever name comes to mind. So, you substitute your own space station name when you say this activation of Light.

. . . . .

Activation of Light to Deport Hostile Life Forms
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett

22 April 2014

So, there is a lower 4D entity inside your air space, the air space of your space station. Here is the activation of Light …

I declare myself 
Commander of this Space Station Transformation  [or the Space Station name you choose]
All hostile, adventitious life forms 
Are deported from this Space Station immediately,
Per Galactic SOP!

. . . . .

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

Earth Grid of Light . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 4 February 2015; revised on 29 December 2019

Image: Earth Grid … http://i.imgur.com/Y6YMkOt.jpg?1 ..

Dear Ones,

I have gotten interested in Earth’s grids of Light lately, on the notion that the form thereof may be infinitely collapsible into the personal electromagnetic field. Check it out how a polyhedron, one of the models for the Earth grid, collapses …

Image: “Planetary Grid Projection, by Becker-Hagens, 1984 …  http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/imagenes_mapas/esp_ma24.gif ..

Here is an interesting thought from The Resonance Project that I saw today: To paraphrase, they notice a resemblance between the moth’s eye and the space-time hologram, especially with regard to fractals. (1)

Somehow I am reminded of the Earth Grid of Light …

A Promise and a Prophecy; and Farewell for Now from the Jinn . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 14 September 2016; published on 19 September 2016; transcribed on 26 November 2019
Old title: A Promise and a Prophecy
Location: Santa Monica Mountains, California

    • Postlude: The Music of Chris Zabriskie, Scenes from Nature, and Astral Farewell from the Jinn

Dear Ones,

A prophetic moment while walking in the mountains! After the prophecy are some scenes from nature: a velvet ant, a yellow butterfly, some wild flowers, and a raven in a pine tree, accompanied by the beautiful music of Chris Zabriskie.

While the music plays, on the astral plane, the jinn said farewell to me. I have put their message in royal blue font, as they say they prefer this color. I expect the jinn farewell, which seemed to arrive at my own energy field today (26 November 2019) rather than as an overlay on the video, may have to do with these two videos, which I transcribed the same day. Both have to do with jinn …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Prophecy of the Jinn
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
14 September 2016

All the spells have come unbound.
All the magic has come loose.
All the words that once were said
On to heaven have sped.

That which once roamed this world
Roams now the reaches of another world.

All is well.
I say to humankind:
All shall be well.

Postlude: The Music of Chris Zabriskie, Scenes from Nature, and Astral Farewell from the Jinn

The beautiful instrumental music at the end of the video is “Prelude No. 13” from the album “Preludes” by Chris Zabriskie, CC by 4.0.

Along with the music are short video clips of natural scenes. On transcribing the tape, I heard … most likely to do with the encounter with the jinn in Joshua Tree, California, a few days earlier … an astral farewell from the jinn; their message could be felt as modulations of the energy of the heart chakra and of the top of the head; the modulations were accompanied by word messages, which I have done my best to transcribe below …

In the video clip about the butter yellow skipper butterfly, the jinn are saying: We go where the wind goes. Dharm Darshan Kaur, we go where the wind goes.

In the video clip of the raven and the pine tree, the jinn say: We will go away from you for awhile. Remember that the wind blows on us as it does on all your people. 

So long, people of this planet; we go away from you. You don’t know where we are. You don’t know anything about us. Always think of us as far away from human people.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I just happen to be over on this street in Pagosa Hot Springs today, and I noticed the music coming from across the street. [Shows street and music store.] And so there I looked. Live music! And it is called the music shop, right? This music is nonstop over here … It is kind of happy music. Nice, huh?

Then I went indoors, away from the traffic, and I could hear nature spirits talking to me. They were so excited! They were dancing and singing the same songs I had heard outside. It was really cool. And so then I got the connection, you know? They are hanging out here because of the music.

Then I was walking over this way, and I saw this tree. [Shows side of building, and tree beside the building.] The leaves were shimmering in the wind at the time. And it seemed to me like there were fairies and nature spirits everywhere … all over this tree. So cool! The ground was shimmering; the tree was shimmering; everything, just beautiful!

Then I said to myself: I will go get my camcorder and take a picture of these fairies! 

To which they replied: Oh, no! We don’t like that!

And all in a flash, each and every one of them lit out to the hinterlands … specifically, to the beautiful pine forest on the mountain behind the tree.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I got some interesting information this morning from the faerie world … from the nature spirits … what we used to call the ‘fourth dimension’, that is ascending into the sixth dimension now. And I thought I would tell you the quick story of it, even though I am late for being someplace else, because when I get important information, unless I convey it immediately, sometimes I forget; in fact, quite frequently.

So I will try to explain this. You know, it is kind of revolutionary information, so I do not really expect you to believe it. But there may come a time when it becomes true in your life, and then maybe it will be useful to you.

Lately I have been talking some to the nature spirits. They are really beautiful, happy beings. I encounter them when I am out in nature … in a place like this beautiful place here. [Shows hillside wooded with tall evergreens. The location is Pagosa Hot Springs.] And sometimes at other times; but mostly out in nature.

And I found out a few things about them … like, they like to receive gifts. Right?

And so, yesterday or the day before, the nature spirits and I were discussing the kind of food they would like for an offering … because, on the internet, I saw that they liked milk. But come to find out, they like fresh-squeezed milk from a cow’s udder. And this is completely beyond my grasp to do that. I heard from the nature spirits, that in Ireland they are doing it. They are still milking cows, and giving a squirt from the cow to the nature spirits.

This is what they told me, and I expect it is true, because nature spirits never lie. They are really straightforward, happy beings of light … really a joy to be around.

And so, but anyway, I could not come up with any good food. So I went to the dollar store, and I bought some beautiful marbles … cat’s eye marbles, right? … all different colors. There were some white ones mixed in. They did not like the milky white ones, but they love the kind that catch the sunlight. And in addition, there was one large marble in each bag. I bought two bags. And those huge marbles, I made sure that they would be good for the devas … the devas, that supervise the wonderful work that the nature spirits do.

And so then, when I would go for my walks, I would try to find a place to put a marble so that it will catch the sunlight, and it will not be dislodged by the winter snows. And under specific instructions from the faeries and elves and like that … to make sure that it is so high that a child cannot see it and take it away. [laughs]

And so, that is what I have been doing every once in a while. And they like it when I hide them, so that they have to go back and find them later. The truth of the matter is, they know exactly where I put them, because they know every single tree. But they pretend, for my sake, that they do not know where they are. And then, as soon as I go away, they go and find them all. And sometimes they go back and find them again. [laughs]

So there is that. I have been having incredible fun with this. You have to learn to talk with them first, to find out exactly what they want. though, because they are very specific. And one of the things they love, I have found, are songs about the Earth. If you are willing to sing songs about the Earth, you had better believe that you will make friends with the natural world.

And so, I found out that there is a group of Medicine Songs by Sacred Valley Tribe …

Link: “Medicine Songs,” by Sacred Valley Tribe …  http://sacredvalleytribe.com/medicine-songs/ … medicine songs in Spanish, English, and other languages!

And so all the nature spirits, all in the wink of an eye, went down to Peru to find the man, Alonso del Rio, that wrote the song “Madre Tierra,” and have him sing it to them …

Video: “Madre Tierra / Alonso del Rio,” by Marcio Assumpcao, 26 January 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozx16OBKtNs .. 

And so, these are a few of the things that have been happening lately. It is terrific! And so, as I mentioned yesterday, I was out here, near a music shop, and there were faeries just all over a tree. It was just glittering with beautiful nature spirits. And all of the Earth round it listening to the song the singer was singing live, outside the shop … even though there were cars passing by. They loved it! They hang out in this area here quite a lot, because of that music store. [shows hillside with tall evergreens, in Pagosa Hot Springs]

So then, I was heading off to a Krishna Das Concert … [continued here] …

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is the third of five videos on the nature spirits, the faeries, and the Devic Realm.

This video is about the relationship of faeries to animals and insects. There is also a little about visits by the Buddha, Shri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj ji (2), and the angelic realm to a Krishna Das concert (3) held at Tara Mandala Retreat Center (4) in the outskirts of Pagosa Hot Springs, Colorado.

There’s a typo in one of the captions for this video: It says “Krishna Das:  http://www.krishnadas.com/ ” and it ought to say “Krishna das: http://krishnadas.com/

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I was heading off to a Krishna Das Concert (3) out at the Buddhist Retreat Center near here (4), and I was travelling with a couple of friends. The nature spirits were talking to each other. The couple were completely absorbed in talking with each other, so the nature spirits started up, right? And when it came time to … I do not know if I should tell you this …

But see, the nature spirits are friends with all the animals and insects. They like to play with them. They love them very much … even bears. I have talked with them about bears. I am not totally partial to bears, but they say that bears are their friends, and bears are just wonderful, and they just love bears. I am revising my opinions about all animals, because they love them so much.

We were sitting in the car … to avoid the mosquitoes … eating our dinner. Outside was a beautiful scene at the Buddhist Retreat Center, of flowers and wilderness. And the faeries were talking to me. They were so happy to be there! And the people there saw what is known as a ‘hummingbird moth’ by one of the flowers. And they loved it so much! … The faeries brought in about six of them, all at once … The place was just full of hummingbird moths. It was great!

Anyway, I want to come back to today, ok? … because the concert was great; it was terrific. There were all kinds of beings of Light and love there. And the people were all so enthralled with higher consciousness, it was really wonderful.

There was quite a lot of clairaudient chatter for me the whole time. And with different entities … with humans …

The nature spirits were standing far off from the building. They said: We don’t go where people go!

I have to agree, it is just not the kind of thing for them. You know?

So then, going back to the concert, let’s see, who was carrying on there? There were people [on the astral plane]. Some ascended masters stopped in … Maharaj Ji, briefly (2) … I do not know if you know him. He is one of Krishna Das’s favorites. The Buddha blessed us with a little rocket shower of golden Light, three times, right before the concert began. And angels came in; the angels were wonderful.  It was a very high evening.

After the concert, as I came back to the place where I stayed tonight, there was some discordant clairaudient chatter … [continued below]

In love, light and joy,

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

After the concert, as I came back to this place where I stayed tonight, there was some discordant clairaudient chatter, which started up again this morning … possibly because of the high energy of the concert, or maybe just because yesterday was the Gateway … the huge Lion’s Gateway … and the beginning of the Mayan calendar year, and a New Moon, and a chance for both us and the nature kingdom to step into a totally different reality, I think.

A door opened last night. And this morning, something became clear, as is often the case in the early morning. I hope to explain it adequately to you, so that, in future, if you need it, this knowledge … this information … will be there for you.

The Age of Atlantis

There is an issue that has been going around. I think it is called Patriarchal Domination … that is, for me, a clairaudient issue. But for others, that are clair in other ways, I expect it has expressed itself otherwise.

But for me, what it seemed like was … As you know, we have been in the Age of Atlantis, and before that was the Age of Lemuria. Lemuria was pretty easygoing, and more feminine in character, both for men and for women.

And Atlantis is a very left-brain, domineering kind of society, where the many talents and skills of women … the special skills of women … are not venerated, and in fact, denigrated. ‘Denigrated’ means ‘torn down, and sullied with Darkness’.

Diminishment of Women. Just as an example, so that you will understand: There was a time on Earth when women were the mainstay of society, and the notion of nurturing children, bearing children; of crops coming up on the land and feeding people, were all bound up together in the notion of the ‘Sacred Feminine’ … the dignity and worth of women. Women were respected then, and honored.

Women as Objects Rather Than Ensouled Beings. As the Atlantean Age has progressed to its utter, lowest point, women have been torn down to just being sex symbols.

And the most obvious representation of this in today’s society, is the role that women play in the mass media: on television, on billboards, in movies; and also in the fashions that are in the stores … which are too flimsy for my taste, and far too skimpy, too see-through …

Clothing Fashions Make It Appear That People Are Darkly Sexual, and Not Ensouled Beings. The fashions that are available are sexual. And the colors that men and women wear, these days, are very dark. If you look at a crowd of people, you will see mostly very dark clothes.

This is the absolute nadir … the lowest point … of the Atlantean Age. And the Shift happened, a couple of years ago, to the blending of these energies, and the restoration of harmony on Earth. I am sure you already know this story.

The Lion’s Gate of Late July and Early August 2014: The Role of the Devic World and the Nature Spirits in Our Lives

So anyway, what happened last night, with this Gateway, for me: I came to an understanding about the role of the Devic World and the nature spirits in our lives. You know them by many names … the fay world, the faeries, the gnomes, the elves … I will bet you there are quite a few that we do not really know about, as human beings.

They are responsible for the nurturing of all life on Earth. And so, the Devic Kingdom will be responsible in the return of the Sacred Feminine to Earth.

  • That is your health, my health;
  • your birth, my birth.
  • They help us in our dying process.
  • Through all the pathway of our life they help us.
  • In the growing of plants they are instrumental.
  • In the fulfillment of wishes, they are the intermediaries.

The Role of the Nature Spirits in Human Free Will and in Wish Fulfillment

So when, for instance, that wonderful human being Tom Kenyon talks about the sphere of infinite possibilities, …

Link: “The Sphere of All Possibilities: A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon,” 18 August 2012 … http://tomkenyon.com/the-sphere-of-all-possibilities .. 

… that is the birthright of humanity, the missing link … the thing that we have not understood … is that the nature spirits are those beings of Light that create what we envision for us.

Our Connection with the Natural World: Key to Co-Creating New Earth

Celtic Faith Versus Christianity. What was lost in Celtic times, when the Christian Church took over there, was the understanding … the connection that we had … the working relation that we had with the natural world.

In Ireland, for instance, there are those that honor the faeries. But in the rest of the world, where Christianity has taken over, this connection has been lost, and in fact, is feared. But this connection is the key to co-creating New Earth.

Patriarchal Domination on the Astral Plane

So, first thing: This thing that has been going round … Patriarchal Domination … and this  I will rape you!  thing that has been happening, and this  No, no, no, please don’t!  thing that has been happening … The thing that the  No, no, no, please don’t!  people… which are the women,  almost invariably, but sometimes men … need to understand, is that all they have to do is explain to the nature world that they do not wish to receive this information; that they would like to stop receiving this information.

The Natural World Has Been Duped by Darkness

The nature world has been misled by Darkness, over and over again, because nature spirits have no untruth in them. They exist only for joy, and they speak only truth, you see. Darkness is the exact opposite … It has no integrity; it has no truth; and it has no love.

When they are confronted with beings like that, and told that something is true when it is not true, they think it is true. So what we have to do, as human beings, is tell them it is not true, so that they know.

A Solution to Psychic Rape: Explain to the Nature Spirits What We Humans Want to Hear

In the case of this thing that has been going around … this  I will rape you, I will rape you  thing, and then this  No, no, no, please don’t!  from the women … right? … the thing that the women have to do is explain to the nature spirits that: No! … They do not want to receive this information about rape. They do not want to receive it.

And any other bad thing or dark thing that comes their way: No! They do not want to receive it. They do not want to hear: ‘My life has no quality.’ 

All we have to do, when we hear negative things from the nature spirits, is say:  No, no, no. Go on back.

How Elementals Travel Along Axiatonal Lines of Light and Psychic Cords

Apparently this works because they travel along the lines of energy … the axiatonal lines of Light, or what they call the ‘astral cords’ or ‘psychic cords’ that connect people. I have asked, and apparently it is the Elementals that do this …

Our Free Will Ability to Avoid Being Sent Emotions We Do Not Wish to Receive

And they are just trying to help us communicate with each other. It used to be unconsciously, and now it is becoming conscious. We have the ability, now, to say that we want to receive a certain emotion, or we do not. And we did not know that; we just did not know.

Men Can Get Help from the Nature Spirits in Healing Their Hearts

I do not know what to say about the guy thing … the  I will rape you, I will rape you  thing. There are a million kajillion men out there that would never think of doing that thing, but some sorts of wounding cause that difficulty.

And the men that are cognizant of what is happening … because it has gone worldwide … it has gone ‘viral’ … even though it appeals to their primal instincts, if they work with the nature spirits, they can help them to heal that. They can help heal their hearts, for instance. The nature spirits are good with heart chakra energy. They can fix it up. They can do a lot of things for us.

Conclusion

So, all I have to say is, Just say: No!

Just explain, if you hear something negative, that it is not true that you want to hear it. And those beautiful beings of Light will be more than happy to take it away for you.

And then, step two: Think about what you really want. Be very specific when you ask the nature spirits for it, because it can manifest immediately through the nature spirit world.

Always Use Positive Emotions in Communicating with the Nature Spirits. Oh yes, the other thing: When you talk with the nature spirits, it is very important not to emote negatively. Their hearts cannot stand it. So, even though something, through their intermediary help, may be causing distress to my heart, it is very important not to be angry with them, or upset with them … because they are always trying to help. You know?

So the thing to do is talk to them very sweetly and kindly. Do not forget; this is the very most important thing.

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is the last of five videos on the nature spirits, the faeries, and the Devic Realm.

This video describes a Sunday, 27 July 2014, understanding reached with the nature spirits and the Devas re telepathic neg-speak deriving from Darkness, such as these recently circulating telepathic by-lines …

  • This relationship is at an end
  • My life has no quality and
  • You have no personality

Odd phrases, would you not say? Some call these neg-speak or ‘malware’. Also in this video …

  • more on the nature spirits, as described by the School of Theoshopy at the beginning of the 1900s
  • a description of faerie funerals
  • a discussion of the true nature of nature spirits and of humans
  • a solution to telepathic neg-speak (‘malware’)
  • the School of Theosophy
  • what to do about Cupid nature spirits
  • singing through muses of music and through angels
  • how to heal the physical body through nature spirits

There is an edited Summary after the video …

    VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

A Request That Faeries Not Relay Unhappy Messages

Today I was talking with the nature realm. I explained that the Dark sometimes tells them that I might be interested in receiving a message that is not happy. But when the Dark says that, the Dark is not telling the Truth … And they wrote it down in their book. (I am not sure what book that is.)

And so they are initiating this procedure of understanding that it is not true, when they hear that a human wants unhappy messages. And it could be worldwide … You know, they are all connected; they are all like one great Soul.

Faerie Funerals

I should tell you, sometime, about faerie funerals … Well, all right, I will tell you …

I asked the faeries, and this is what they said: They are never unhappy. They never need to sleep. Their hearts are open and joyful always. And they do great work for the world.

They are not like us humans (who have individual Souls) until they get to the Devic level, apparently. (I read that part in the School of Theosophy teachings.)

I cannot attest to that, because I am not adept at that kind of thing. But it seems true to me, because of the way that they instantly communicate with each other. When you sing a song to them, all you have to do is sing it once, and every faerie knows it forever … It is kind of cool.

So from that perspective, I am guessing that Alice Bailey and those other great School of Theosophy leaders of the early 1900s were right about the group Soul teaching. Their line of evolution is different from ours, but in essence, in purpose, in tenor of energy, they are very close to us … because their true nature, from which they never deviate purposefully, is to express their hearts, their love, and their joy. And ours is the same.

So, I was going to tell you about a faerie funeral … I was talking with the faeries some time ago, and I did not know every much about it … I am still asking lots of questions; I still do not know much, hardly. All of a sudden, I heard a little scream. And I felt a faerie wink out of existence.

And I thought: Oh my God, what happened? I am very excitable in that way; I do not like to see things like that, or even think things like that, or hear things.

Oh, they said, He stepped on her.

And I thought: Oh my God!

But their point of view is very different. They said: That’s ok. That’s all right. We are going to have a wonderful funeral for her.

What they do is, they take flowers, and carry them on a bier in honor of the faerie who has gone. They said that the knowledge and understanding and experience of that faerie goes into their own understanding, so that the faerie is never really gone, in their own hearts. But just as a kind of ceremony, and to remember the beauty of that life, they carry this bier of flowers and garlands, and they sing a song for the faerie …

Image: “Death of the Fairy Queen,” by John Anster Christian Fitzgerald, 1864 … http://www.illusionsgallery.com/Fitzgerald–Death-of-the-Fairy-Queen-L.jpg ..

It was pretty cool. And so, anyway …

On Asking Faeries Not to Convey Repeating Neg-Speak Slogans

There are some slogans … repeating slogans, or key words or bylines … that have been passing around, through the clairaudient realms, lately. My feeling is that these are very carefully phrased, so as to create a negative energy in the human heart, an energy that is fairly mild, and not so easily detected as something more spectacularly worded would be.

I thought I would mention a couple of these, because you can ask the natural world, the Devic Realm, to work with you in eliminating them from your telepathic scenario.

What I have been running into, what I hear sometimes, is: This relationship is at an end. 

And I also hear: My life has no quality. That is another phrase.

And then, just as a final example, I hear: You have [or he or she has] no personality.

So if these phrases feel negative to you … to your own heart energy … what you can do is explain, to the nature spirits, that that energy is not for you; the energy of that phrase … or any other phrase that repeats and that you hear … is not for you.

There Are Many Kinds of Nature Spirits, with Many Different Specialties

Then, you know, nature spirits come in all different specialties. There are so many nature spirits, and so many different specialties. Every nature spirit knows about all these specialties, so you and I do not have to be an expert in it.

What you can do, is say: I would like to do this and such work. And then ask for the nature spirits that deal with that. And so, they know what to do.

I am going to give you two examples, as a heads up, of things I have discovered …

Cupid Nature Spirits. There are Cupid nature spirits … whose specialty is the Art of Love. Do not call them unless you are good and ready. Take my word for it! They are hard to dissuade once they have decided … But they will listen, eventually, in case you have a change of heart.

One thing you can do, in case you inadvertently call a Cupid nature spirit, is: Ask it to go to the nearest person that is really interested in that kind of work. And then they will take off like a flash, and head in another direction.

Muses of Music and Angelic Voices. So there is that. And here is another suggestion: Let’s say that you love singing, and that, like me, you do not have such a good voice. First, know that the nature spirits do not mind. If you are singing from your heart, they love it anyway. That is the first thing. So do not be shy; if you want to sing, sing!

But here is a trick I have learned: If you would like to sing a song, but you would like it to sound a little better than your own voice, then you can call a Muse of Music. They are wonderful! Ask them to sing for you … and see what happens. [Sighs.]

And if you are not too sure about a Muse of Music, you can ask an Angel to step in and sing for you, and see what happens.

Body Elementals and Spirits of Healing. These are only only two examples; there are many different specialties. And, pertinent to many people, there are nature spirits that deal with the health of the physical body. So if you have a pain, you can ask them to remove it. If you have a restriction in your movement, you can ask them to look into it. And so on.

The sky is the limit.

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

Hematite and Human EMF Field Tangles . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on human EMF field tangles and the health benefits of hematite. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Malibu Creek State Park, Spring 2016

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

I had a thought about the kinks in the etheric net (the etheric body) and the electromagnetic field (EMF) … the physical EMF … being little circles of positive and negative energy going around. Those kinds of circles could put a little kink in the EMF of a human being.

Someone suggested to me just now on the psychic plane, through clair hearing, that it could be that is why magnets help human health. It is possible that magnetic treatment could release those kinks and those tangles and knots in the electromagnetic field somehow. I do not know the specifics about it, but I think it is something worth looking into … magnetic field beds, magnetic field anklets and bracelets, hematite … is that not a magnetic stone? … and so forth.

As I understand it, magnets are said by some to help with health issues (such as arthritis, as I recall), but have not been proven to do so; that lack of certainty is something to take into consideration.

[Then follows a short videoclip of a white and grey butterfly.]

Dear Ones,

This is a video about wild plants of the Santa Monica Mountains that was taken on 20 March 2016, the day of the 2016 Spring Equinox, in the Santa Monica Mountains …

There is an edited Summary after the video. The Summary includes many images found in the video, and a few not found there …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO         top

Words of Warning         top
Please do not take my word as to whether these wild plants are edible … In many cases, I just heard it from other naturalists. Do your research, make sure you have identified a plant accurately, make sure most folks agree that it is edible, and then if you are sampling for the first time, try just a tiny bit, and wait a day to see if you have any reaction. Any iteration of this blog must include this warning. –Alice B. Clagett

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

We are going for a botanical walk in the Santa Monica Mountains today. We will see what we find here, on this beautiful Spring day.


Poison Oak         top

Here we have a beautiful Spring bloom of poison oak. So for those that are allergic to it, here is what it looks like, with berries …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 1: Poison Oak Closeup,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Pretty, is it not? Poison oak is a relative of poison ivy, which is on the East Coast. But poison oak grows into a bush, and poison ivy is a climbing vine that climbs up the East Coast.

While most Caucasian people seem to be allergic to poison oak and poison ivy, the Native Americans had a number of uses for it, including using the pliable stems of the poison oak …

California Native Mustards         top

I am pretty sure that this is a California native mustard here …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 4: California Native Mustard,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

They grow singly; not like the ones introduced by the Padres. They grow singly, and in odd ecological niches. Ups, here is another one over here … where is it? … right over here is another one. And oh, I see some more … yes, some more, just coming up, So under this native coastal live oak tree here …

… there are a number of them. It is a very small econiche. It is not like the open field is full of mustard seeds that the Padres brought. But it is beautiful in its own way … very dainty, very nice … somewhat hard to find. There are a number of California native mustard species or types like this. While they are edible, they are endangered, so it is best to leave them alone, with the hope that they may flourish in future.


Black Sage         top

This is black sage here …

It has a very huge root. And I see it is too soon for the prickly fruits of the wild cucumber to come out. It is a vine, and it has holdfasts that are … let’s see if I can find one … very little whorls of circular or circles of holdfasts. Ok, there is one, reaching out into space …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 10: Wild Cucumber Holdfast,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is trying to catch hold of a plant, so that it can pull the wild cucumber vine up higher into the sunlight. It climbs like crazy in the early Spring, and then it just withers away, and survives by means of the huge root underground.

This variety of nightshade … the one with the purple flowers … has fruits that are not edible. Here is the fruit of the purple, or deadly, nightshade …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 14: Purple (Deadly) Nightshade Fruits,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is a very small, immature fruit, but as I recall, it comes out green when mature, and so it is distinguished from the mature fruit of the white nightshade, which is purple, Fruit is mature when it is soft or squishy.

There are nightshade references at the end of the “White Nightshade” section below.


White Nightshade         top

There is another nightshade, white nightshade (Solanum douglasii), that has black fruit; I heard from a naturalist that the black fruit were edible, but after trying one of the berries, I feel a little queasy. So I would advise caution in trying even the white nightshade fruit.

For those who are allergic to tomatoes, eggplants, or potatoes, which I understand to be in the same family, common sense dictates avoiding the fruit of the white nightshade.

Nightshades are a little like mushrooms: Only those who are certain what variety they have in hand ought collect them for consumption. This link is a good guide to the various nightshades of California …

It has a seed cluster (sumac ‘drupe’ or ‘bob’) that looks like a dusky, red Christmas tree. The birds eat it. I heard from my mother that it is poisonous, but I think in the Orient that this, or some relative of it, is used as a spice. So that is something to look into, for the future, without actually consuming it in advance of the research. [The spice I had in mind is Ziyad Brand Sumac, but whether this is the same or a different plant, I have no idea.]

White Sage         top

I doubt we will see any white sage on this walk. White sage has straight, white stems, and it is gathered … usually illegally … by people who sell it in bundles for incense to purify or cleanse people’s homes. You will see six-inch or eight-inch stacks of it, tied with yarn or string, and sold in the stores, and typically it is gathered nearby, rather than out in the National Forests, where, as i recall, it may be legal to gather it.

So I would like to ask, on behalf of the conservancy organizations: Please do not gather wild plants in the National Parks or the Santa Monica Mountains or like that … places where it so easy to gather, and where things can become endangered if you, in fact, do that. This is just a plea and an explanation. I am hoping for the best, there.

… which has so many uses, I must look them all up! But I will tell you one colorful example: They say that if you gather mugwort, which grows plentifully in some areas, and dry it, and put it inside your pillow, then you will have special dreams.

I tried this myself; and because I was not all that fond of the strong odor of the mugwort, my dreams were not all that pleasant. But you may have better luck than I.

The other thing I know about mugwort: To my mind, ‘wort’ means ‘plant’ and ‘mug’, to me, means that you make tea out of it, and put it in a mug. That is how I think of it. And so I remember that a tea of this is good for women. It solves various troubles that can be looked up, and brings balance to the female system. There may be other uses too.

The Native Americans would gather them, haul them, mash them up, net them, put them in running water, in a stream or like that, in the wintertime, to get the bitter tannin out of them, and then mash them up more, and use them as flour in their foods.

And because they mashed them in stone hollows, with stones, the acorn meal was mixed up with sands from the stone, it was mixed in with the food that they ate, and it wore down their teeth at a very early age. It is better to use some other kind of mashing technique, I feel.

Here are the leaves of the tree that produces the acorns …

… very showy this time of year. I think you can eat the flowers (or maybe the berries) in pancakes. But you have to take some parts off, so it is important to read up on this before attempting a recipe with it. Parts of this are edible, but only if prepared in certain ways, and maybe only in limited quantities.

You have to be very careful to take them out of their green sheath. Or you can wait until the seeds are mature and hard, and then you can grind them up and use them in your food. It is very important to get the sheaths off though, because they can stick in your throat and feel funny.

Live oats … whole fields full of them! There are some of them up there, across the road. These are all live oats …

The Clair Plane and Prison Reform . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

These are my thoughts on the increasing clair perception of all humankind, and how this may result in prison reform. The Postlude features the beautiful instrumental music of Chris Zabriskie along with images from the natural world. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have just a few things to say about the prison system. What I have been noticing, as the Ascension process continues, is that there are quite a few what you might call ‘misqualified’ energies that are coming up and leaving Earth. I got to thinking that some of these … because they express a kind of energy that society would judge criminal.

And I got to thinking that some of these energies may be coming from the prisons all over the world. I got to thinking: What would be the course of action for the future, during the New Beginning on New Earth, with regard to crime and prison systems, and so forth.

It seems to me that, because the whole world is becoming telepathic, and clair in many ways, clairvoyant and telepathic, that the misqualified energies in the prisons worldwide will be broadcast to everyone on Earth, both as far as astral hearing is concerned, and as far as astral visions are concerned.

And the broadcasting that will take place will be uncensored. So very small children will hear it; teenagers will hear it; and older adults will also hear it. Everyone on Earth will hear it and be affected by it, in a way that has not been so in the past … because, in the past, people were not as aware of the astral plane as they are becoming now; and they were not as clairly gifted as they are all becoming now, you see?

So the question arises: What would be best for everyone on Earth, under these circumstances? Everyone can hear what is going on in the prisons, as if it were right next to them. So then, what would be the best course, as regards crime and criminals, for everyone on Earth, right?

I know some people would summarily say: Well, of course, they should all be dispatched. Let’s not have them around! 

But this kind of understanding is not an understanding of what happens on the astral plane, after passing on: For, when a criminal is executed, at least according to Arthur Powell and the School of Theosophy of the early 1900s, when a criminal is executed, he still haunts around the places he used to know.

So he still causes some kind of trouble and commotion in the communities or families that he came from. At least, that is my thought on it:That a holistic approach to crimes and criminals and prisons needs to be considered and worked out by all humankind.

I think that this awareness will become more clear to everyone on Earth in the coming years. You will have your own thoughts on it, I am sure; and I welcome them.

Take care. God love you and bless you all, and bring you safely into the new life, into the new transformation on Earth.

Metamorphosis . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 10 October 2015; published on 13 October 2015
Location: Jemez Mountains, New Mexico

Dear Ones,

This video is about the metamorphosis … the beautiful transformation that humankind is experiencing right now. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

It is 10 October 2015 today. I am sitting up here in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico. All I can see are pine trees everywhere, and the beautiful needles of the pine trees on the ground. And they make soft, silent footing.

Image: “Pine Forest, New Mexico,” by Alice B. Clagett, 10 October 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

A light breeze is blowing. It is a beautiful, balmy fall day. Here we are in the midst of incredible clearing for humankind. Incredibly beautiful clearing is going on. And we humans are doing what we may to facilitate the process. I have to say I am very impressed with humankind.

It is a time of mental chaos and mental turmoil and confusion. Imagine being a millet seed! I saw some millet on the way over here. There was a place where they were growing millet. And I did not even know what it was, till I got out of the car and took a picture of it … off in, was it Oklahoma or Kansas? … millet growing …

Image: “Millet in the Midwestern United States 2,” by Alice B. Clagett, 10 October 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

The thing about millet is: You plant one seed, and when millet is a mature plant, there are all these seeds on one millet plant! And so millet is an example of fertility and fecundity, and feeding all of Earth; the prosperity of all the hearts on Earth … the happy growing, and the happy evolution of humankind.

Anyway, I was going through fields and fields of millet seeds. And it feels to me like now like a millet seed would feel, if a farmer planted it in the field. And then the rains came, or else the irrigation system … whatever it takes.

The water came, and softened the shell of the millet seed. And then grace told the millet seed that it was time to sprout and grow, yes? Imagine the turmoil there … the changes taking place inside of that seed, biochemically. Immense changes, as the seed starts to sprout, and bursts out of the hard shell, that has been softened by the rain … yes? … and begins, for the first time, to burst through the shell of soil above it, and begins to feel the sunlight, and begins to photosynthesize.

Wow! That is just like humankind right now. We are going through immense changes internally. Everything looks the same; but we are going through metamorphosis. And it is like a butterfly … It is like when a caterpillar becomes encased in the pupal shell. And then all these changes take place inside, and everything gets mixed up. The whole structure of the caterpillar’s body gets changed.

Image: “Monarch Life Cycle – 12 of 20”: Monarch butterfly pupa, by Steve Mosdell, Flikr … https://www.flickr.com/photos/sidm/4813664836 … CC BY 2.0

They call that … I do not much like the term, but they call that ‘pupal soup’. It is just like us right now, because humankind is about to burst forth into the sunlight, and is about to change from something that crawls on Earth, to something with beautiful wings, that can fly.

These are the times! And we do what we do: We say Yes! I am willing to sprout. I am willing to burst through the soil. I am willing to feel the Sun upon my green leaves. I am willing to grow into a great millet plant with many seeds, that can help the whole world with wisdom and Light and grace.

And we are saying: Yes! I am that caterpillar. I am willing to experience the pupal soup, so that I may become something that is far grander, and far more beautiful. So that I can remember the greatness that I am.

And we humans, we are assenting. But what is actually making the change, I feel, is the Divine grace … the grace of God that lights our path and carries us forward, through the chaos, through the turmoil, through the sprouting of the seed, through the confusion of the pupal changes, and into the greatness of our Souls.

God bless you all with love and Light and peace. God’s grace upon you!

Signs in the Clouds: The Caterpillar . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 6 October 2015; published on 11 October 2015

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

A new cloud reading: The Caterpillar … about New Life on New Earth, and New Beginnings. The union of Earth and Sky in humankind. And about stepping into multidiming (many dimensions). There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Look, Dear Ones! It looks like there is a big caterpillar in the sky …

Image: “Caterpillar Cloud,” by Alice B. Clagett, 5 October 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

I was thinking about that great, big caterpillar in the sky just now. It was on a busy freeway, so I could not talk while watching the sky. So here we are, right now, off the freeway. 

I think it has to do with New Life on New Earth, and New Beginnings … because, What is a caterpillar? A caterpillar is a tiny insect that just crawls along … Is it an insect? I do not know … It just crawls along the Earth, right? And one day soon … in a matter of months … it turns into a butterfly.

And that is like us … It is like what is happening on Earth today. So I am the caterpillar, that is going to be the butterfly! [laughs]

And so about butterflies: They can land on Earth, and they can also fly in the sky, can they not? So they have the ability, in a manner of speaking, to ‘multidime’ … they have multidimensionality ability, you know? So, that is us!

Talk to you later. Have a great day.

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

PS: There are Latin American churches here and there in the Los Angeles area by the name Nuevo Empezar … which means a ‘fresh start’, a new beginning. That reminds me of today’s cloud reading.

Dear Ones,

Here is the third of five videos on the nature spirits, the faeries, and the Devic Realm.

This video is about the relationship of faeries to animals and insects. There is also a little about visits by the Buddha, Shri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj ji (2), and the angelic realm to a Krishna Das concert (3) held at Tara Mandala Retreat Center (4) in the outskirts of Pagosa Hot Springs, Colorado. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video.

There’s a typo in one of the captions for this video: It says “na Das:  http://www.krishnadas.com/ ” and it ought to say “Krishna das: http://krishnadas.com/

By the way, if you only have time to see ONE video on Faeries, skip to this blog …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I was heading off to a Krishna Das Concert (3) out at the Buddhist Retreat Center near here (4), and I was travelling with a couple of friends. And the nature spirits were talking to each other. The couple were completely absorbed in talking with each other, so the nature spirits started up, right? And when it came time to … I do not know if I should tell you this …

But see, the nature spirits are friends with all the animals and insects, and like that. And they like to play with them. They love them very much … even bears. I have talked with them about bears. I am not totally partial to bears, but they say that bears are their friends, and bears are just wonderful, and they just love bears. And so, I am revising my opinions about all animals, because they love them so much.

And so, we were sitting in the car … to avoid the mosquitoes … eating our dinner. And outside was this beautiful scene at the Buddhist Retreat Center, of flowers and wilderness and like that. And the faeries were talking to me. They were so happy to be there! And the people there saw what is known as a ‘hummingbird moth’ by one of the flowers. And they loved it so much! … The faeries brought in about six of them, all at once … The place was just full of hummingbird moths. It was great!

And so anyway, I want to come back to today, ok? … because the concert was great; it was terrific. There were all kinds of beings of Light and Love there. And the people were all so enthralled with higher consciousness, it was really wonderful.

But however, there was quite a lot of clairaudient chatter for me the whole time. And with different entities … with humans …

The nature spirits were standing far off from the building. They said: We don’t go where people go!

And so, I have to agree, it is just not the kind of thing for them. You know?

So then, going back to the concert, let’s see, who was carrying on there? There were people [on the astral plane]. Some ascended masters stopped in … Maharaj Ji, briefly (2) … I do not know if you know him. He is one of Krishna Das’s favorites. The Buddha blessed us with a little rocket shower of golden light, three times, right before the concert began. And angels came in; the angels were wonderful.  It was a very high evening.

After the concert, as I came back to the place where I stayed tonight, there was some discordant clairaudient chatter … [continued at …]

Goleta: A Burst of Butterflies . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 28 January 2014

    • Story about a Deva of an Ocean Shore

Dear Ones,

A thought about butterflies and humanity, a short clip from the Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove, and scenes on the beach at Goleta, California …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones,

It is early morning here, I have some pictures to show you from a trip I took to Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove and Goleta Beach Park on Sunday, to see the Monarch butterflies in the eucalyptus grove there …

Link: “Goleta Butterfly Grove,” http://www.goletabutterflygrove.com/ ..

And then I went for a walk on the beach. And I had just one quick thought about those butterflies: The short clip shows what they call a ‘burst’ of butterflies. You will see.

And my feeling was: It is just like us right now. We are like those Monarch butterflies hanging from the eucalyptus tree leaves, all kind of drab and dark looking, and dormant. And right now … right this very minute … is coming the ‘burst’ … the ‘burst’ of humanity. So I hope you like the clip, and the pictures. And I hope you get a chance to walk over there … It is pretty cool.

Story about a Deva of an Ocean Shore

While I was walking along the shore of Goleta Beach Park, I spoke with a Deva there … a medium-sized Deva … a Deva of an Ocean Shore … This Deva was surveying the shoreline, and the ocean, from a vantage point by a lone tree on a cliff above the shore.

It was set back, in regard to its accustomed friendliness with the human race, because of the oil spill washed up along its beloved shoreline. I felt bad too; what a shame that the beautiful, rocky shore was besmirched by tar and oil. That Deva of the Ocean Shore at Goleta had much work to do, all because of the carelessness of us human beings.

Talk to you later. [Video clip of butterflies hanging from eucalyptus tree leaves.]

Dear Ones,

Stalking crawdads in Colorado … An edited Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am stalking crawdads today … see, there is one … [shows crawdad slipping from rocks into water] …

Oh, there he goes! [shows other crawdads in water] … Look at! Can you see them? Stick around … [shows another crawdad] … They do not like sounds. Look at that! [crawdads are edging backwards off rocks into water] … Oh, they are all going down. [One is left on a rock.] Hello, dude! Hello, hello, how are you? Yeah, they do not like me much.

[Shows hummingbird moth hovering over the water and gently touching it with its lower abdomen.] What is that, a hummingbird moth? Is it drinking the water? …

[Searches around, finds three crawdads; one is larger.] Oh, look at that one! He is hiding in the water. [Shows another crawdad nearby.] There is one. And look, they are thinking of fighting, I think …

There are four there; one is hiding … No, no fight. [pans around] …

Look at that [shows more crawdads]; there is one hiding, one not hiding. This place is incredible; it is Crawdad Condo City. Well…

What happened is that this is an irrigation conduit here. [Zooms back, to show the mostly dry irrigation conduit.] See?

Sometimes it has water in it, and sometimes [like now] it does not. But on the deep spots, there are these pools, and when the conduit dries up, all the crawdads hang out together in the pools.
