Dear Ones,

CHARISMATIC CATHOLICISM

In my reading, I recently came across the term ‘Charismatic Catholicism’ and looked it up in Wikipedia. To my amazement I found that there are 120 million Catholics worldwide who are Charismatic Catholics, and that it has been looked upon favorably by the last four popes …

“The charismatic movement is the international trend of historically mainstream Christian congregations adopting beliefs and practices similar to Pentecostalism. Fundamental to the movement is the use of spiritual gifts (charismata). Among mainline Protestants, the movement began around 1960. Among Roman Catholics, it originated around 1967 …

“In the Roman Catholic church, the movement became particularly popular in the Filipino, Korean, and Hispanic communities of the United States, in the Philippines, and in Latin America, mainly Brazil. Travelling priests and lay people associated with the movement often visit parishes and sing what are known as charismatic masses. It is thought to be the second largest distinct sub-movement (some 120 million members) within global Catholicism, along with Traditional Catholicism.[35]” –from Link: “Charismatic Movement,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charismatic_movement#Roman_Catholicism ..

“Perceptions of the Charismatic movement vary within the Catholic Church, although it has been favourably regarded by the last four Popes. Proponents hold the belief that certain charismata (a Greek word for “gifts”) are still bestowed by the Holy Spirit today as they were in Early Christianity as described in the Bible.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

CHARISMA AMONGST PROTESTANT CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS

In addition there are charismatic movements in these Protestant denominations: Anglicanism, Evangelicalism, Lutheranism, Methodism, Calvinism, Adventism, and Eastern Orthodoxy, as well as the Pentecostal Christian movement …

CATHOLIC ‘CHARISMS’ AND LIGHTWORKER GIFTS

On behalf of Lightworkers, Ascensioneers, Pathfinders, and Wayshowers, I note the striking congruities between our Lightworker gifts and the Catholic ‘charisms’ …

“Renewal advocates believe that the charisms identified in Saint Paul‘s writings, especially in Romans 12:6-81 Corinthians 12-14, and Ephesians 4:11-12, continue to exist and to build up the Church (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, §2003). The nine charismatic gifts considered extraordinary in character include: faith, expression of knowledge and wisdom, miracles, the gift of tongues and their interpretation, prophecy, discernment of spirits and healing.(1 Corinthians 12:8-10)[7] These gifts are related to the traditional seven gifts of the Holy Spirit described in Isaiah 11:1-2 (wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord, as listed in Catechism of the Catholic Church, §1831). The nine charismatic gifts in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 are also related to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.[8] Other references to charisms in the Catechism of the Catholic Church include §§688, 768, 799-801, 890, 951, 1508 (charism of healing) and 2035. The belief that spiritual gifts exist in the present age is called Continuationism.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

CAVEATS FOR LIGHTWORKERS REGARDING FITTING IN WITH CHRISTIAN CONGREGATIONS

On Appropriate Restraint of Incoming Light During Worship

I feel that it is important for Lightworkers who wish to join a Christian Church that they restrain their gifts during regular church services, as outpouring of grace through Spirit can be upsetting to those of the congregation not so gifted.

As some of you have perhaps found, pastors and ministers who are holding church services can understandably feel that outpouring of grace during services might interfere with the performance of their sacred office.

For instance, outpouring of grace during the Offertory … the uplifting of bread and wine at the Eucharist … while understandable and nearly unavoidable from the stance of the participating Lightworker … might fill the church with such Light as to cause a pastor or minister to falter in speaking the words of the ritual. Speaking of the words is very important to the perfection of the rite; and so I suggest that attending Lightworkers appeal to their Ascension Teams to flow through only as much grace through Spirit as is best for the ritual at hand. The ritual is, I feel, of great importance in dispensation of grace to humankind.

On Holding Charismatic Gatherings Outside of Regular Church Services

I read about criticism of Charismatic Catholics as follows …

“Critics accuse Charismatic Catholics of misinterpreting, or in some cases violating, Church teachings on worship and liturgy. Traditional Catholics, in particular, argue that charismatic practices shift the focus of worship away from reverent communion with Christ in the Eucharist and towards individual emotions and non-liturgical experiences as a substitute.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

In the same article I read …

“Catholics who practice charismatic worship usually hold prayer meetings outside of Mass and feature such gifts as prophecyfaith healing, and glossolalia.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

I can see that holding prayer meetings … especially with live spiritual music in which those at the meetings participate … would be a good way to express charismatic gifts without disruption of the traditional church services through ‘grandstanding’ or extra added elements beyond established ritual.

On the Difficult Question of Egoic Aggrandizement

Grandiosement of the ego is a peculiar pitfall for those gifted with charisms, and one that leads to entirely the wrong path in life. At every moment, I feel, one must align with God’s Will, His Heart, and His Mind; that is the only way to purity of Spirit and outflowing of grace.

I myself feel it it best to remain … insofar as possible … unknown to the congregation and to their pastors and ministers in this regard. Better to be unknown than constantly to be harassed and tested by notions of self-aggrandizement. Not being known at all is, I feel, a much more comfortable position in which to experience outpouring of grace, as God wills, and in the moments He chooses.

On Faking the Gifts of Prophecy, Healing and Speaking in Tongues

I note especially, from a day I attended a Pentecostal church service in Durango, Colorado, that members of Pentecostal congregations want to fit in. They want to be Spirit-filled. And sometimes they may pretend to have gifts such as prophecy, healing through laying on of hands, and glossolalia (speaking in tongues) so as to feel welcome in a congregation. I feel this is understandable from a human point of view, and expectable.

It might be helpful for a pastor or minister who has those gifts to let the congregation know they are welcome to attend just as they are, and that Spirit flows through us when it will, and not necessarily, Lord knows, at a time convenient to us.

On Lightworkers Being Cast Out by Prevailing Prophets in a Church

I feel we Lightworkers must assess the issue of one-upmanship and jealousy by prevailing prophets in a church. If we arrive with charisms, it is quite likely that a prophet who has a stance or ‘holding’ in that church may feel his standing to be threatened by our arrival.

In a church where there are one or two Spirit-filled prophets, known to the rest of the congregation for their true visions and their healing ability, a dark vision by those so revered … to the effect that we Lightworkers are ‘sent by Satan’ might easily be believed.

If action is taken to cast a Lightworker out of a church in this way, I wonder if it might be helpful to talk with the pastor or minister about fitting in with the prevailing prophets, and helping them feel at ease? I say ‘I wonder’ because when this happened to me some years ago, I was too devastated by the casting out to approach the pastor about it later through dialogue.

To my way of feeling, there is nothing worse for me, as a Lightworker, than to be accused by several good Christians of being the very opposite of what I truly am. People are people though … let us try to talk together and resolve these misunderstandings. This I feel especially to be a good avenue when Lightworkers live in small towns with few choices of places to worship.

CONCLUSION

I see the likelihood of being ‘cast out’ (in the case of a Protestant church) or ‘excommunicated’ (in the case of Catholicism) as a cause for concern for Lightworkers, Ascensioneers, Pathfinders and Wayshowers.

I hope this blog offers a path those gifted with the Incoming Light a toehold for interacting with our Christian churches with less concern about blame and judgment by their congregations. first of all, I suggest we attend those churches that look favorably upon charisma. Then if the issue of ‘being different’ or ‘wrong’ comes up, we can talk together about their church’s stance on charisms and charismatic Christianity. It may be we will all gain many new insights in that way.

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

Heresy: On Willful Desecration of the Human Form . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 25 October 2019

  • THE BODY AS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • EARLY ABORTION
  • GENITAL MUTILATION AND CASTRATION AS HERESY
  • IMPOSSIBILITY OF REPAIRING SELF-INFLICTED DAMAGE TO OUR BODY CELLS

Dear Ones,

These are thoughts for those who profess the Christian faith, as do I …

THE BODY AS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

As a Christian I believe that the physical body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Through my physical form, God’s grace descends to me in this Earthly incarnation.

In addition, I have read in Christian texts that it is very difficult for a human being to develop the finest Christian qualities, and place his or her mind on devotion to God, unless the basic needs of the body … such as adequate food and water, clothing, and shelter … are met.

I believe both of these points to be true: My body, I feel, is the Temple of the Holy Spirit.  And also, my spiritual goal in this lifetime is devotion to God. To me, these are good reasons to honor my physical body and keep it in good working order.

Some of the Christian faiths profess that abortion is a sin. Yet within these faiths may be those who practice male genital mutilation or castration as a sign of faith in God. I feel the practice of male genital mutilation to be an error of understanding. To be completely frank, I feel it to be a modern day heresy. Here is why …

EARLY ABORTION

When a woman, through whatever circumstances, has an early abortion, the life of an unborn child is ended. But the woman is still able to have another child, and that child may well house the Soul of the child that was aborted.

The Soul of the early aborted child is not lost to God, but only moves on to incarnation in another body. As well, the body cells of the woman are not permanently altered in such a way that she can no longer bear children. Nevertheless, it may take some while for her to get over the emotional pain of the loss of her child, which I feel may cut more deeply than many surmise.

GENITAL MUTILATION AND CASTRATION AS HERESY

But when a man practices genital mutilation or castration to prove his love of God, then his body cells are injured in such a way that he may never accomplish that act of procreation for which God intended the sexual organs.

IMPOSSIBILITY OF REPAIRING SELF-INFLICTED DAMAGE TO OUR BODY CELLS

When we damage our body cells because of a mental filter … a ‘mind set’ … we cannot fix the physical damage we have done through thought. How can thoughts of destroying this Temple be in agreement with those of the Mind of God?

It is God who fashioned these bodies through which the Grace of the Holy Spirit enters and permeates our human form. It is God who gave us our sexual organs. It is up to us to keep all our body cells as healthy and happy as may be.

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

Premonition of Danger for Someone I Care About . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 17 October 2019

  • DANK: THE STALKER
  • HIS ONE-TIME WIFE
  • A SECOND MAN: THE MALDEKIAN
  • PREMONITION REGARDING ONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS

Dear Ones,

DANK: THE STALKER

These two blogs are about a person who apparently murdered his mom when he was about the age of puberty …

Link: “ADULTS ONLY (PG-13 – SEXUALITY): Dank,” by Alice B. Clagett, Filmed on 10 September 2019; published on 15 September 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ee4 ..

Link: “The Stalker: Encounter with a Multiple Personality?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 9 July 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dyb ..

HIS ONE-TIME WIFE

According to the astral plane, he was once married to this woman, who may have stolen her father from her mother, and then somehow arranged for his death …

Link: “Female Antisocial: Femme Fatale,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 16 March 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8tT ..

I have a feeling these two once got together because each had murdered a parent of the opposite gender; and so they may have had that in common. These are very difficult sorts of catastrophic early childhood experiences, and apparently invariably lead to (or perhaps are caused by) antisocial personality syndrome in the child who murders the parent.

Note: The woman termed ‘Kali’ in the below image is not the same person at the ‘one-time wife’ described above, but a while ago there was an astral glom that involved the’one-time wife’, the woman in the drawing, and one or maybe more than one other women …

ADULTS ONLY  (PG-13 – NUDITY): Image: “Kali Clothed,” by Alice B. Clagett, 21 August 2019, CC BY-SA 4.0 … https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2019/08/2019-08-20-kali-clothed-adapted3-good-e1566398655130.jpg … DESCRIPTION: A buxom woman with red lipstick and shoulder-length hair, wearing a blue bikini, squatting over the head of a man with open mouth, open eyes, and a crew cut. The woman’s feet are about a yard apart, toes outward in the plié position of ballet. Her elbows are by her sides, forearms horizontal and spread-eagle, fingers spread wide.

Here is a more traditional image of Kali, expressing the same tenor and personality traits as in my drawing above. Though risqué, it flies under the Wikimedia radar as a work of religious art …

Image: “Kali Trampling Shiva,” chromolithograph by Raja Ravi Varma,” before 1906, source: http://images.wellcome.ac.uk/indexplus/obf_images/06/be/c9c466b8dd2eca222a98d0a1e171.jpg … from Wikimedia Commons, public domain

Luckily, it appears that the astral ‘Kali’ glom has by now untangled.

A SECOND MAN: THE MALDEKIAN

For a long time, on the astral plane, these two … the murdering man and the murdering woman described above … apparently have been associated with another man who had two early incidents of note, but less catastrophic in nature. In the first two links below, this second man is the boy who threw the rock that resulted in the accidental death of a young girl (maybe a sister) …

Link: “The Child with the Rock,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 24 March 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-76h ..

Link: “Astral Case Studies: Boy with the Rock, and Child Lilith,” by Alice B. Clagett, written on 26 August 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-adS ..

In this third link prior incarnations of the second man are described as a child who died in a wartime setting, next to his mother; reborn as a conjoined twin inside his reincarnated mom; and then reborn as her baby brother …

Link: “Ego 2: One Ego Encapsulated in Another; Body Co-Tenancy and Soul Evolution,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 17 August 2016; revised on 11 October 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-613 ..

This second man might also have been involved, along with me, as one of two neutral observers during the destruction of the planet Maldek … he having been at the time, Maldekian, and I Venutian …

Link: “Thoughts on the Controllers, True Power, Lightwork, and a Truer Reality,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 12 September 2013; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6GE … See the section: Alice’s Perilous Tales: Memories of Homeworld Destruction … Planet Maldek?

If this is so, then he is one of the first Maldekians to attain human form here on Earth, and important as a leader of his as yet disincarnate peoples back into incarnation here on Earth.

That shared experience of planetary destruction would have been his link to me in this lifetime.

PREMONITION REGARDING ONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS

I had a premonition last night that the stalking man was about to enter the life of one of my extended family members. I have a concern about it, as I care about my extended family, and the first man had, according to the astral airs, been tracking me on the physical plane for about 8 years, until the year 2016, with intent to murder me.

I am hoping this warning will help my family member to stay safe. She should know that he works with disguises, and goes by the name of another man.

In my own extended family, as far as I know, there have been no catastrophic childhood experiences, so I feel it may be possible for my extended family and me to avoid karmic entanglements with people who have suffered in this way.

The difficulty is that my extended family member may be experiencing a feeling of female competition or one-upmanship, and that might trap her into wanting to be with the second man. That, in turn, may lead her into the trap of the first man, Dank, who might pretend to be the second man.

My prayers are with her, that she may avoid this danger, and steer a clear course for her family through the coming years.

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

Dear Ones,

I channeled a little from the Kingdom of the Dwarves this morning. I am pretty sure it is the Lesser Dwarves rather than the High Dwarves. There is also a little about elves in the video. An edited Summary follows the video.

WARNING: FOUL LANGUAGE … FOR ADULT VIEWING ONLY. This video has foul language in it, due to the speech of the beings that were channeled.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I was speaking to the dwarves today; and I have some information for you about the race of dwarves on Earth. More than anything else, the dwarves want gold. And they pester humankind to get their gold from them.

The dwarves are responsible for the notion of capitalism, and the notion of one-upmanship. It is they who have sponsored the noospheric thread of energy that sounds to me like phrases using the quaint term ‘bu–e hole’.

Last year or so, the phrase was used in a very aggressive manner … what you would think of as hostile takeover, in business terms … intention to injure human beings … to take from them their health, their wealth, their homes, their pets, their family … anything that could be taken … if that could be turned into gold.

Then the elves stepped in. Now the elves apparently have an uneasy alliance with the dwarves. I talked with some elves about it yesterday … a small troupe that are living nearby … and asked them what was the state of agreement between the dwarves and the elves. And the elves said that they get along pretty well, unless the elves get angry about something. That was what they said. Elves are pretty easygoing; it would take a lot, I feel, to get them riled.

Apparently the elves have offered a mitigating energy with regard to this ‘bud– hole’ thing that has been going on, in the noosphere, in recent years. They have a sense of delight and mischief, and so the energy of that statement by the dwarves has changed to something much more playful, much more fun. That is a good thing for the noosphere. Now to get down to this morning’s channeling …

What to Say When the Dwarves Start to Threaten Us
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
7 August 2019

One thing to say, when the dwarves start to threaten us is this; you say it to the dwarves …

 

You can only have
What you have,
And no more.

Say it in a firm but unemotional voice.

You can only have
What you have,
And no more.

Like that. I tried that this morning, after trying many other things that did not work. And then I heard … far off, or maybe subterranean, deep down … a tally going on. They were trying to figure out how to increase in me a sense of insecurity in my basal chakra.

That ‘bud– hole’ thing that they were talking about is an attempt to weaken our basal chakra, which is responsible for abundance, and retaining wealth, and that kind of thing: Retaining our possessions, retaining our health, good luck in the world … like that.

it is their idea that they can snatch our luck and snatch our goods. And it is our idea that we want to keep our stuff, right? We are entitled to what we have. [laughs]

So anyway, when I made that statement this morning: You can only have what you have, and no more … stern but unemotional … it stopped them. And then I heard this tally of things that they use, like hooks, to engage our first chakra in a kind of an upset, or malware programs that they use. They latch onto these things. This was the tally …

  • They said: A sense of abandonment
  • I use their words now: A sense of ‘fu– up’ … as in: My life is a ‘fu– up’
  • The Jesus Christ syndrome … By that I feel they mean self-sacrifice outweighing concern for one’s own good
  • They said: She does not get her newspaper out in the morning, and ‘V-k-r’ is in charge of that … I guess that reading our newspaper in the morning increases our sense of lack of safety in the world.
  • Then they said: No heat wave … I think by that they mean that they might be able to manipulate sexual desire to their own ends.
  • And the very last thing on the list that I heard this morning was: No ‘motherf—-r’ concept … I hesitate to use these words. These are dwarf words; they are not personal words in my vocabulary. It is something on their list. And I guess that means something like one-upmanship or desire to injure other human beings.

So you know that, if you can clear your basal chakra of these types of issues, you are safe from the dwarves.

Ok, that is it for now. You all take care.

Love you lots.

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

Groups and Acting Out During This Transitional Ascension Phase . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

A minute ago the sunshine was dazzling, and now it is about to start raining here. That is very unusual … pretty welcome too.

I have something to explain that I have finally found out about groups and grouping and the eighth chakra bow-tie. It has been blogged before on my blogsite … see these blog categories: 08th chakra  … and …  Bow-tie knot  … so you could look under those categories for the background information.

This new information is pretty important for almost everyone on Earth right now, and it goes something like this …

You see, we are all rising to consciousness on the astral plane. This plane is that of the emotional body. Thus conversations on the astral plane, which I sometimes term ‘clair chatter’, have very little in the way of mental thoughts in it. And conversations on the physical plane … as when we chat on the phone or in person … are a mixture of mental and emotional.

So what is happening is that, as groups are expanding into Awareness of their astral bodies … which are more refined energies than the physical body … everyone is becoming clair: clairaudient, clairvoyant, and all those other clairs.

And so one of the first things that seems to happen for groups is that the followers in a group … not the leader but the followers … are the first to become clairaudient. And what they are hearing are the daydreams of their leader; the daydreams that the leader is feeling due to unresolved Soul wounding, generally.

Now the problem with groups, in the physical reality right now, at the beginning of the Great Age of Light, is that they have become accustomed to following the subliminal commands of group leaders … which may be why the advice was put out by other Ascension teachers last year, to try to steer clear of groups. As we become more clair, and before we reach the level of the integration of the physical and the astral plane … the third and fourth dimensions … as followers of groups we can be led into acting out behaviors by suggestions that are really daydreams of the leader of a group.

The below astral story illustrates the importance of not paying attention to what we presume to hear as the advice of a respected group leader, if it contravenes the mandate of law. (In fact, it was the hearing of the astral story that caused me to formulate the overarching topic of this blog.)

Example: Astral Story about Dylan Redwine’s Disappearance in Colorado

Once more I shall take pen in hand to tell my readers of a wild astral story that went round regarding the 2012 murder of Dylan Redwine, near Vallecito Lake, Colorado. The astral story had to do with a woman who knew the boy in early childhood, perhaps as a babysitter or friend of the family, and was thought to have captured and tortured him over the course of a month.

On the physical plane, I heard an elderly woman friend in Pine River Senior Center, Bayfield, Colorado (where I would eat lunch and play dominoes a time or two weekly, during my summer visits to Durango during the years 2013 through 2015) once mention that she had seen the child waiting at a bus stop … I thought then that she might have meant a bus stop in Vallecito Lake … on the day of his disappearance. After hearing that story (and if she correctly recognized the child that day), then it could be, I thought, that a family friend, or person he knew, saw him at the bus stop, stopped, and offered to drive him to his destination that day, and that he never got there. This is the only physical fact I have about the event, and that, I recognize, is hearsay. Now, back to the wild astral story …

When the woman took the boy to her bedroom, in her home in a housing development near Vallecito Lake, according to the astral story, her husband wounded the boy’s lower spine in such a way as to prevent locomotion; this act also would have caused incontinence, and paralysis and lack of sensation in the lower body and legs.

Then, over the course of an excruciating month, the astral airs were full of accounts of torture sessions, in which the actors wore costumes that concealed their identities. An actor who made a one-time appearance in a subsidiary role was said to be the illegitimate son of a local law enforcement officer; and that was purported to be the reason why the sessions were not interrupted, nor the perpetrators apprehended.

Another notion put forth on the ‘astral airs’ had to do with the torture sessions being backed by wealthy local people, who conveyed the sessions through closed circuit TV to tourists at a ritzy hotel in Durango. Thus, according to the ‘astral airs’, local people were felt to be ‘in cahoots’ with the crime; or possibly feeling, in a subconscious context, deeply guilty about it.

In the astral story, the kidnapping woman, in her subconscious mind, thought that the leader of her spiritual group was instructing her to torture the child. She and her husband, according to the astral story, called the leader and his wife, and agreed to convey him to their house for one of the torture sessions, in which the leader’s wife cut off the boy’s eyelids with a manicure scissors ‘so that they would be pretty, ‘cornflower eyes’, like her own’. (This part of the astral story has to do with the topic of this blog.)

Some time thereafter, according to the hypothetical story, the husband of the kidnapping woman took the boy’s life, in his own eyes justifying this as an act of euthanasia, to end the possibility of further torture. More on this wild astral story here …

The people in Vallecito, Colorado, were by all accounts, both astral and according to the news media, very upset about the long unsolved mystery of the disappearance of Dylan Redwine, and their upset may have been the incubating impetus for this astral story; it could be that everyone in Vallecito and the neighboring towns of Bayfield and Durango, Colorado, longed, during the years following the abduction or disappearance, for a simple explanation, and an end to the long agony of suspense and not knowing.

[Video, continued …] From this astral story … even assuming that there is the smallest thread of truth in it, I gathered with some forcefulness how important it might be to develop a sense right away … right now … of who we are, and of making our own decisions, and not following the subliminal suggestions of group leaders; especially for groups that are used to blindly following the advice of their leaders, and for which there is not much democratic choice. It is very important to switch gears right now, and instead consult our own higher levels … our own higher energies … and find out whether or not we should act in the world in a certain way.

In the past, I have given this general rule of thumb, and that is: Just do not do anything criminal …

Link: “Criminal Minds Have Criminal Thoughts,” an affirmation by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 7 November 2015; published on 15 November 2015 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-4ig ..

Do not do anything that is against the law, because the repercussions are rather severe, if a person does criminal activities and then that is found out by law enforcement. It is very important to toe the line right now. That is the first thing.

In addition, do not do anything that cannot be revoked, such as taking someone’s life, or taking one’s own life, or anything of that nature; nothing that is so final as that.

Now keeping in mind this is only a skit that is taking place, within the context of our many Higher Selves … see blog category: Physical body and subtle bodies … I mean, there are 72 dimensions … see my blog category: Dimensions … The third and fourth dimensions are getting this kind of difficult choices (but very important choices at this moment in time).

Whether we lose form or we do not lose form, is not as important as we think it is, because we exist in so many different dimensions and timelines. But nevertheless, what a waste of a wonderful physical body, to make some decisions based on the notion that the leader knows the right thing to do, and is telling us that … when, in fact, the leader may not have arisen to that awareness yet; the followers are arising to that awareness first.

So my suggestion is: If you start hearing things from your leader that sound a little odd, that do not sound as if they fall within the normal range of the leader’s perogatives, the thing to do is to sit down and talk with them on the physical plane. Find out if it was a daydream or something true. And that way I think we can get through this situation much more gracefully and easily.

It is hard for followers, very hard, because we are dealing with the feral drives, the primate and pack instincts, which have been operating through the unconscious thought cloud of the world for all these 11,000 years … to teach us many Soul lessons, of course … but right now, the thing to do is to stand back, and consider why we are taking certain actions, and to try … with our higher consciousness, our Christ consciousness … to consider what Christ would do. Or if Christ is not our leader, then perhaps follow the Ten Commandments of Moses, who, I feel, thought very hard about what is needed to get along in the civilized world, in a group; and in conjunction with other groups too, as the situation is today.

It is not like there is just one pack right now, and everybody has to toe the line. Instead, there are many, many packs, and they all have to get along pretty much together. And the way that functions is through the law … and to take it a step higher, through our own higher consciousness and our own notion of loving, Christ consciousness and Christ Awareness.

We have to find the middle ground, where we do not react to the leaders, but instead, stand back, in our own light of higher consciousness, and decide whether we should be doing something or not.

We may be determined to follow the leaders. I suggest that is not such a good idea right now because of the misunderstandings that can come up, because of the glom effect, and because it is harder to clear when we follow leaders … even family leaders or leaders of spiritual groups; any kind of leaders, right now. The thing to do is to stand back, and not do that so much as before; to realize that we have come into our own wisdom … our Soul wisdom … and that we can find that path ourselves.

It may come out, in your group, that some people act out in a very upsetting way, and that the responsibility for that lies, in a way, with the leader, because the leader has been daydreaming. But the true responsibility for each person on Earth has to do with their own Soul, and their own wisdom. We cannot really blame it on the leaders. We have to take responsibility for every act of our own, in the world.

That is the dynamic, though: The dynamic is that the suggestion is by the leader, in an unconscious or subconscious way, and that the followers … thinking that it is the right thing to do, even though it is exceedingly unusual, perhaps … are actually doing the thing.

Well, you all take care. I am glad that this has been found out. And I hope it will be easier for each succeeding group that is ascending to not act out; and to realize their own greatness, without that group glom effect.

You all take care. Love you all lots. I wish you the very highest and the very best.

Obsession as Folie à Deux . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

OBSESSION AS FOLIE À DEUX

Might obsession or possession be considered an instance of folie à deux, in a psychological context? That is to say, might the obsessed person have subconsciously agreed to be ‘obsessed’ by the shadow of the personality of another person? Are there long-standing friendships in which this is the case?

BULLYING EXPRESSED AS RAPE FACILITATED BY FOLIE À DEUX PARTNER

An instance might be where one man has a tendency to bullying, yet was taught as a child not to do so. Still, he has the samskara of bullying, not yet cleared from his Soul wounding, but unknown to himself in adulthood.

I hypothesize that the subconscious mind of such a man might lead him to develop a friendship with a man who has a similar samskara, and less inhibition toward acting out. Then the first man might put his friend in a position of acting out the bullying, which would be gratifying to both men … the one, at first hand, and the second, through putting himself in the place of the man who achieves the act in the physical realm. In other words, the first man enjoys the act of rape ‘by proxy’ through the second man, who ‘stands in’ for him.

Here is an instance I heard of on the astral plane in recent years: One man might like to rape women, but knows it is wrong. He forms a friendship with another man, who flat out likes to rape women. The first man charms and woos women, and seduces them. These women fall head over heels for him, and give him a key to their abode.

The first man makes a copy of the key for his friend, who then slips in at night, blindfolds the wooed women, and rapes them.

The women can tell that the manner of sexual intercourse is very different from that of their lover. But they are confused, because the two men resemble each other in body weight, muscle mass, height, and hairdo. Because they were blindfolded, they do not know what happened.

These actions may occur in a mutual fugue state, and not be remembered by either man; if brought to their attention, they may or may not remember the events that occurred or why they occurred.

SUBCONSCIOUS INVOLVEMENT IN REPETITIVE ACTING OUT: REPRESSED MEMORIES – FUGUE STATE

This lack of understanding of repetitive events, failure to remember them, and inability to change them, I posit would have to do with the subconscious repression of the first man, due to early childhood parental caveats; the springing forth of the repressed emotion, and its expression through obsession or ‘egging on’ of the second man, being the catalyst of the repetitive ‘acting out’; and then the boxing up of the emotion back into the subconscious mind of the first man, after the proxy act takes place.

The second man might remember the actions, but not feel that they were wrong or reprehensible, because his upbringing was different from that of the first man.

SUBSTITUTION OF NAMES AND OBJECTS IN DAYDREAMS BECAUSE OF FEAR OF SOCIAL CENSURE

Or this might be a recurrent daydream shared by the two men, played out using different women that they know, and maybe not substituting the names of other women in the daydream, so as to conceal their ‘mark’ or ‘target’ woman.

It is also possible that such a recurrent daydream might migrate to the shared thought of sex between the two men, but using the name of a woman as their fantasy sex object so as to avoid social censure on the astral plane.

Cultural homophobic concerns regarding such migration from shared male daydream of a female sex object, to mutual male astral sexual stimulation are, I feel, to some extent expressed in this artwork …

ADULTS ONLY (PG-13 – NUDITY): Image: “Around the Dragon’s Broken Neck Hangs the Medal of Saint Lazarus” by various artists (Hospital Productions) … https://i.scdn.co/image/a34ab903fe77a65c8ebbd5f54306900fc3867baaThis is a photograph of a man standing by an oil barrel, and holding in his right hand a big tin can. In front of him is a person with a scantily clothed woman’s body and a man’s bowed head. To me, it seems as if the first man is about to pour something from the can onto be back of the person in front of him.

In fact, I feel this type of male shared daydream, whether by two men or by many, putatively targetting a lone woman, may be the basis for male athletic camaraderie and for men who socialize together in an all-men’s club or in cultures and religions worldwide where men and women socialize in separate groups.

FOLIE À DEUX REGARDING SAMSKARA OF SOCIALLY FROWNED UPON EXPRESSION OF SEX DRIVE

Another manner of expressing this form of folie à deux might take place where one man is taught as a child to act with propriety. Yet he has a samskara of acting out in ways socially frowned upon, such as through sex work or pornographic movie acting.

This man does not engage in these behaviors, but still has the Soul wounding that, in another lifetime perhaps, expressed itself in these activities. Subconsciously he longs to express himself in this way.

The first man forms a friendship with a second man who has no inhibitions regarding these behaviors. The first man then eggs the second on to sex work, and facilitates this by providing a shared workspace for the activity. In that way he enjoys the sex work activity ‘by proxy’.

Or, the first man gets a job as a porn star, but at the last minute, for the closeup of the act of sex, the second man stands in and his genitalia are photographed in the act of intercourse. One might feel that the first man had acted in a way that contravenes societal expectations, but he might argue that the physical act was that of someone else, and not his own.

Shared Identity in Folie à Deux

That the second man ‘stands in’ for the act of sex can, I feel, lead to a subconscious misunderstanding between the two men. They may begin to answer the phone and transact business and personal relationships as if each were the other. They may not, in their subconscious minds, make the distinction ‘I’ versus ‘other’.

This misunderstanding may be abetted by similiarity of physical appearance. In short, each may confuse himself with his friend. They may even feel they are the same person. This hypothetica; instance might, I feel, be yet another expression of folie à deux.

FOLIE À COTERIE REGARDING CON ARTIST GROUP OR CYBERCRIME CLUB

In a similar way, a con artist group of people, or a cybercrime club, might be considered folie à coterie, as confidence games are, I feel, a form of bullying or one-upmanship.

BULLYING AND SADOMASOCHISM

In a psychological context, I feel these two forms of folie relate to the sexual dysfunction termed ‘sadomasochism’.

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

Dear Ones,

This is a call to action regarding the religious practice of mortification of the flesh, including self-flagellation, that some Christian denominations retain as a historical tradition. In noospheric tenor, these practices tie into the denser energy streams of sadomasochistic sexual practices and snuff sex that have, of late, ransacked the noosphere of Los Angeles, especially on the weekends.

Aside from the link-in with historic practices of fleshly mortification why is it that this relatively rare nuance of sexual behavior is such a standout in the Los Angeles noosphere of late? For more, I turned to this publication …

Link: “The Psychology of Sadomasochism: An Attempt to Explain Sadism and Masochism,” by Neil Burton, M.D., posted 17 August 2014, in Psychology Today … https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hide-and-seek/201408/the-psychology-sadomasochism ..

From that I learned that many seemingly innocuous forms of behavior, such as tickling, infantilizing, and love-biting … and perhaps, I would add, taunting and bullying, as are oft found online these days … play into the darker, denser energy streams of the relatively recherché world of sadomasochism. Thus we are all, willy-nilly, for the most part unwittingly, involved in the clearing of these dense energy strands from the Los Angeles noosphere at present.

My appeal today is to those who are consciously able to choose whether they will add to these denser noospheric energies of sadomasochism. I make this appeal because, as an intuitive person, I find these energies very difficult to bear, especially on the weekends in Los Angeles, and most particularly so during times of solar storm … even geostorms as mild as that which we experienced last night …

Image: Kp Index 11 May 2019 18:30:02 UTC, by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA … public domain. One Level 5 bar spike indicates that a mild geostorm (lasting three hours or less) took place.

In order to keep our personal Body of Light (aura, or energy field) pure and bright, I feel it is important to avoid injury to the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit itself, in my sense of it, is injured by mortification of the flesh.

LET THERE BE NO RETURN TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR OF OLD

It is the work of a Christian to discover the Grace of God within, or so I believe. What can be farther from that goal than the undercurrents that apparently evolved, over the centuries, in organizations such as the historic Knights Templar? Having read this no-holds barred account of that evolution …

Link: “The Dark History of the Knights Templar,” from “Knights Templar’s Saga” at theunjustmedia.com … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/templars/knights_templars01.htm

… as well as this more tempered account …

Link: “Knights Templar,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_TemplarMore tempered.

… I have some concerns about the renaissance of the Knights Templar tradition by newly formed groups here in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States.

How is it that, in ages gone by, sincere members of devout religious orders have fallen prey to emanations of self-hatred and hatred of others through organizations founded for the best of reasons?

The answer, I feel, lies in the slight affinity aroused in the body to hatred of others through the practice of self-mortification …

Link: “Flagellation: Religious Practice,” written by Geoffrey Abbott, in Encyclopaedia Britannica … https://www.britannica.com/topic/flagellation ..

Through this ‘toehold’ of hatred of the body, flows forth into the noosphere hatred in all its forms: Hatred of women, abuse of children, envy at the sexual prowess of other men; hatred of this teaching or that of one’s own church, or of those of other Christian denominations; and finally, hatred even of the Light of God within, and turning to the abomination of Satanic ritual.

WILL PLAGUE COMPEL US TO FLAGELLANT PARADES?

In the mid-13th Century, processions of self-flagellants took place in central Italy with intent to mitigate a devastating plague. In current times we face another such plague, the scourge of HIV/AIDS, which leaves those of our children who are so infected unable to produce viable offspring.

In our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., according to Centers for Disease Control statistics published in 2016, the lifetime risk of contracting HIV was 1 in 13 people …

Link: “2016 HIV Lifetime Risk Statistics from Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-c3f ..

Since 2016, no state-by-state statistics have been published. Yet the epidemic, I feel, is cresting in the congested urban areas of the United States, or will soon do so.

Until statistics are caught up, we cannot definitively know where we stand with regard to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Meanwhile, shall we once more fall to the practice of publicly mistreating our bodies … whether in our streets, or on the silver screen?

ON PERFECTING WORKS OF CORPOREAL MERCY

The answer to the social stresses now testing the tensile strength of our democratic way of life lies not in hatred, not in acts of terrorism whether ultra right or ultra left, not in pogroms, not in vigilante justice, not in wanton waste of life, but in a learned and temperately discerning approach to the problems at hand.

Let us pay utmost respect to our bodies, the abiding temples of God’s loving kindness to us. It is this, the virtue of Christian charity … to ourselves as well as to others … that holds the answer to action in the world during this, the cusp of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

In the Book of Matthew, Christ says …

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” –Matthew 6:16 (KJV, public domain)

I am put in mind of the biography of pastor Martin Rinkart, whose example I find  inspiring in these times of worldwide hardship …

Martin Rinkart (23 April 1586, Eilenburg – 8 December 1649) was a pastor who ministered to his flock in Eilenburg, a walled German town, during the Thirty Years’ War, 1618-1648.

In 1637, when the town was already worn down by war, the Great Pestilence took place. At that time the town of Eilenburg had four ministers. People from the surrounding area who were suffering from epidemic and famine sought refuge in Pastor Rinkart’s town.

As the plague-ridden entered the town, the townspeople became infected. One of the town’s ministers, no doubt overcome by a sense of impending doom, fled to healthier climes. The two other ministers stood by Pastor Rinkart, who saw them buried.

In the end, Pastor Rinkart was the only pastor left in Eilenburg. He conducted services for over 4,000 people, sometimes as many as 40 or 50 a day. In May of 1637 his wife died, which must have been a grievous personal blow to him. By the end of that year, the dead were being buried in trenches, and there were no services for them.

Under the most harrowing of personal circumstances, Martin Rinkart composed this uplifting hymn of gratitude for God’s myriad acts of loving kindness, a hymn that is often sung even today …

The examples of the many great saints of our Christian faith are like a beacon lighting our way in these difficult times. Like them, let us maintain hope in the face of the trials that stand before us. Let the heartbreak of many in our community lift us to faith in God’s sweet intention towards our Souls. Insofar as we may, let us speak to the pure Spirit within, so that we may find the courage to face calamity with equanimity, and the fortitude steadfastly to practice the Christian corporal works of mercy.

Let us feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned, ransom those held captive. and bury the dead.

There is a passage in Matthew 25 that speaks most poignantly to this time of Ascension on Earth. This passage brilliantly limns the manner in which we may choose to address the momentous days that lie before us, through works of mercy practiced in loving remembrance of Christ …

Matthew 25:31-46 (KJV, public domain)

31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 “And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 “When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 “Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 “I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 “Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Surely none has spoken, nor likely ever will speak, more eloquently or to the point, than Christ himself has done. This passage sets us on a sure path through faith in Him, even in the face of  the most devastating hailstorm of temporal sorrow.

CONCLUSION

In these days of woe, shall we stand with Christ and act on his behalf? In truth, what we may do for the disempowered, the disadvantaged, and the disenfranchised people of Los Angeles, is what we may be privileged to do for Christ Himself in this lifetime.

It is the Body of Christ Himself to whom we minister. It is He whom we feed, whom we clothe, for whom we provide potable water, for whom we find lodging, whom we help to find a sure path after release from prison, and whom we seek to ransom from malefic entities … whether human or clothed in mists beyond our ken … who hold them prisoner.

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