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.

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

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 …

Link: “Amateur Sleuth: The Dylan Redwine Murder Mystery,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 20 June 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7nr ..

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 …

Image is for Adults Only: “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 …

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.

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 …

The Heroic Works of Charity of German Pastor Martin Rinkart During the Great Pestilence

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

Hatred Tends to Come in ‘Twos’ . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

Hatred tends to come in ‘twos’ … two cultures, nationalities, and religions have a quarrel with each other. One accuses the other of terrorist activities or hate crimes. Mass media rouse public sympathy on the topic. Then follow news reports on the same side of the fence.

This convinces the public that there is a culture, nationality, or religion that is to blame for the enmity of the offended party, which poses as the ‘victim’ in the situation. Public perception of the pariah and the victim in two cultures, nationalities, or religions that have twined in hatred, can endure for decades.

The public perception that one party in a warring duo is to blame or at fault is, I feel, not conducive of a peaceful denouement. A balanced job of news reporting regarding paired acts of hatred would go a long way toward effecting that accord.

I ask that the news media take into account the greater good of the American people, and offer us a balanced picture of such ongoing animosities as the Jewish – Islamic conflict in the Middle East and here in the United States; the homed – unhomed conflicts arising in the cities of the United States; the diverse stances of employed – employer; and the rights of the people of the United States in the face of the power of corporations and drug cartels.

If news media will go the mile in putting before the American public both sides of the issue, then we, the People, can, through a groundswell of informed opinion, in town hall meetings and neighborhood councils, make a difference in public policy, first at the level of our communities, and from those grassroots beginnings, on up through the layers of government, to the architecture of the laws passed at a national level.

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

Dear Ones,

Something came up, in the astral realm last night. Several people were dreaming along with me, and then we all woke up, in that half-dreamy state of reverie between sleep and waking. We were working out together what to say for an exorcism.

PRAYER OF SAINT BENEDICT FOR EXORCISM

You all may remember my work on exorcism, and the words that people used to say, which are well rhymed and visually evocative. Here are the words of the Prayer of Saint Benedict for exorcism …

“Crux sacra sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
“Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
“Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas”

The Wikipedia translation  is like this …

“Let the Holy Cross be my light / Let not the dragon be my guide
“Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
“What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself.” –from Link: “Vade Retro Satana,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vade_retro_satana … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported License

THE SATAN WORLD AND THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

The Satan world has a lot to do with the subconscious mind, and the collective subconscious of humankind. Psychologists and psychiatrists might say that the images of the Satan world are repressed, subconscious expressions of thoughts and feelings that cannot meet societal expectations.

If this be true, then in order to deal with the Satan world, we must know about the subconscious mind, and how different it is from the conscious mind.

As the subconscious mind has not the qualities of logic or of abstract thought, its mental process has most fundamentally to do with its interpretation of metaphor as an emotion-packed image of a physical thing … often an image of the human body, or of a house that it interprets to be the human body. In a sense, the message of the subconscious image (or dream image) is the emotion that it carries, and the action that the body or house is taking … quite often, the pickle it is in at the moment. So the dreamtime expression is Image plus Emotion; that is the language of the subconscious mind.

In addition, the subconscious mind loves repetition and rhyme.

Thus it has these three qualities: love of repetition, love of rhyme, and expression of metaphor through visualizations of the human body during our dreamtime.

THE FIRST THREE LINES OF THE PRAYER OF SAINT BENEDICT, IN SUBCONSCIOUS TERMS

First Line of the Prayer: Crux sacra sit mihi lux

As can be seen from the above translation of the Prayer of Saint Benedict, it offers striking visual imagery. In the old days, Christians used to wear or carry a cross with them always. I feel this to be a very good practice for Christians today as well.

If that is done, then the first words of the Prayer … Crux sacra … might be accompanied by our physical gesture of touching the cross round our neck or in our pocket. And that would be a good gesture to engage the subconscious mind’s longing to express thought in terms of our physical body.

When we think about it, the cross is like the human body with arms outstretched. When we touch the cross upon our body, then the subconscious interprets the words crux sacra as meaning that our own body is a sacred place. In other words, this crux sacra is itself. The subconscious, in this way, is lifted up into the realms of Christlike Light and love and joy. It seems to me natural that these first words of the prayer will banish from the subconscious mind the imagery it may conjure of a Satanic being.

Then the words sit mihi lux … which create an image of Light. The subconscious mind then visualizes Light pouring into or emanating from the human body. Light, in Ascension terms, is the great healer of the Body of Light, plumping up the axiatonal lines of light, and erasing Soul wounding.

Soul wounding often is carried in the subconscious mind, we feel. Thus, visualization of the physical body as full of Light, we feel, is a healing image for the subconscious mind.

Second Line of the Prayer: Non draco sit mihi dux

The second line of the prayer … Non draco sit mihi dux … is also visually evocative. We might imagine that the subconscious creates an image of a dragon bossing it around. And that image applies, in terms of the brain, to the reptilian brain, the ancient instincts of humankind which often run counter to societal expectations.

Thus the second line of the prayer helps the subconscious mind toss out ‘acting out’ of the feral drive. And it presents this dictate in terms that the subconscious mind can understand … as visual imagery that carries and a message replete with a particular emotion.

In the case of subconsciously evoking the image of Satan, and of the conscious mind wanting to be rid of it, the second line of the Prayer is a command, spoken in subconscious lingo, to the subconscious mind. Just as the first line of the Prayer evokes, for the sake of the subconscious mind. what to do, the second line of the Prayer evokes, for the sake of the subconscious mind,  what not to do.

Third Line of the Prayer: Vade retro satana

With the third line of the prayer … Vade retro satana … we come up with a bit of a problem. And this is the problem that several people were discussing in the reverie state last night. The difficulty is this: Sometimes Christians use this translation of the line: Get thee behind me, Satan!

Now there is trouble here, from a martial arts point of view: No one wants Satan sneaking round behind them! Who knows what he might be up to, after he gets there?

Not only that, but there is apparently a metaphoric mixup going on with regard to the phrase Get thee behind me, Satan! and the act of rectal intercourse. Apparently, the collective subconscious of Christians globally has been associating the righteous phrase to this alternative mode of sexual expression.

I ran into an instance recently, on the astral plane, of someone ‘acting out’ this metaphor in real life, by performing the act of donor rectal sex while wearing a devil mask. I will say, this vision had me baffled; but now I understand. It is simply a mistake made by the subconscious mind in the misinterpretation of the phrase Vade retro satana as if it meant, in English: Get thee behind me, Satan!

Unusual as it may be, this dream world ‘acting out’ is an excellent example of the way the subconscious mind interprets visual images through the emotions attached to them, and translates them into physical terms, especially with regard to the dreamer’s own physical body.

I can only imagine the subconscious feeling emotions of courage and victory, while it saw the image of Satan going round behind the person. Well … the subconscious must have thought … It must be a very good thing for Satan to go round behind someone. This person gets a courageous, victorious feeling when Satan does that.

Now many Christians feel that Satan is an evil dude. And they also feel that rectal intercourse is an evil act, and can result in a person being possessed by the devil. I guess this all amounts to that very misinterpretation of Vade retro satana as meaning: Get thee behind me, Satan!

What is the subconscious mind to do? If it goes with the emotions of courage and a feeling of victoriousness, and opts, in real life, for the act of donor rectal intercourse, then it will afterwards reap the emotions of damnation and social opprobrium because of Christian disapproval of this act.

What a conundrum! And not one that the subconscious mind … lacking, as it does, the faculty of logic … is capable of figuring out. Better … far better … would be to propose a different English translation for the phrase Vade retro satana …

Alternate Translations of the Third Line of the Prayer. The translation I quote at the beginning of this blog … Step back, Satan … is better, I feel. And last night we came up with some alternate translations: Go back, Satan! …  and a young person contributed, with peals of laughter  …  Back off, Satan!  I feel these are also quite good; I especially enjoyed the laughter of the young person. There is nothing quite like laughter to evaporate visions of Satan and the demon realm. Well done, young person! Well done!

The imagery in each of these last three translations is of Satan approaching, and then the subconscious mind commands that he back off. And then, in subconscious imagery, he backs off … which, I feel to be just the right kind of image for a prayer of exorcism.

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

Dear Ones,

Those of you who have been reading my Community Health blogs on the global HIV-AIDS pandemic may know that I have felt for some time now that HIV/AIDS incidence in the United States has been under-reported, partly because of the AIDS stigma, and partly because of insufficient testing in the United States, including testing of men, women and children, regardless of their perceived sexual orientation; or, in the case of young children, of their perceived degree of sexual activity.

I have come across new statistics from Truvada on the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the United States. According to Truvada, currently 1 in 100 Americans are likely to be diagnosed HIV-positive in their lifetime …

Link: “Truvada” … https://www.truvada.com/hcp/guidelines?utm_source=truvada_prep&utm_medium=referral ..

That page is full of information and very long; fortunately I found that if I right mouse click on the lower left part of the page, the part that has statistics in it, I have the option “Print Friendly and PDF,” which worked great for me using Chrome for Windows.

I see Truvada’s source for this information is …

Link: “2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections,” by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, published 2016, accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html ….

UNITED STATES: STATES WITH HIGHEST HIV INCIDENCE

According to the Truvada website, the statistics vary greatly from state to state, here in America. For instance, in Washington, DC, the lifetime risk of HIV diagnosis is 1 in every 13 people. In Maryland, the risk is 1 in 49. Other states with risk ranging from 1 in 51 to 1 in 97 (which is to say, among the highest in the nation) are Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, New York, Texas, New Jersey, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Delaware, and Alabama (the first listed being the states with higher incidence).

States with risk ranging from 1 in 402 to 1 in 670 (which is to say, among the lowest in the nation) are South Dakota, New Hampshire, Wyoming, Vermont, Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota (the last listed being the states with lower incidence).

GREATER INCIDENCE OF HIV IN THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES

Here is a map from the Centers for Disease Control CDC), using 2015 data, indicating that the Southern states … which comprise 38% of the United States population that year, accounted for 51% of annual HIV infections, and 51% of undiagnosed infections … https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/images/policies/cdc-hiv-south-burden.png … I note their definition of Southern states includes states from Texas to Maryland, and south to Florida.

I note as well that many of these states have voted not to offer expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act …

Link: “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion by state,” by Kurykh, 19 September 2013 …   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medicaid#/media/File:ACA_Medicaid_expansion_by_state.svg ..

That might affect availability of healthcare for HIV and AIDS in some low per capita income Southern areas. It looks like the Centers for Disease Control have recognized the need for more HIV and AIDS health resources to be dedicated to the South, and have begun providing these …

Link: “HIV Prevention in the South: Aligning CDC’s Funding with Current HIV Trends” (2010 and 2015 data) https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/pdf/policies/cdc-hiv-south-graphic.pdf ..

STATISTICS FOR RECIPIENTS OF RECTAL SEX

According to the Truvada statistics, among men who have sex with men, receptive rectal sex partners are at high risk of contracting HIV … 13 times more so than are insertive partners.

Truvada does not have statistics on this, but I feel the risk may be just as high (and for similar biological reasons) for women who are receptive rectal sex partners. For more on this, from an energetic and intuitive point of view, search my site for the word: rectal

STATISTICS FOR MEN HAVING SEX WITH MEN, AND THE ISSUE OF SECRET MALE BISEXUALITY

Again according to the Truvada statistics, the risk of HIV infection is 83 times greater amongst men having sex with men, than it is amongst heterosexual men. This brings up the question how many men are bisexual, passing for heterosexual? As an intuitive, I feel this number to be a good deal higher than the socially accepted notion.

For a married bisexual man, passing as purely heterosexual for the sake of social convention, I feel the likelihood of HIV infection might be close to that for purely homosexual men.

Impact of Secret Bisexuality on Life Expectancy of Wives and Children

As well, I feel the likelihood would be high that a secretly bisexual man might not share a positive HIV status with his wife. The results of this secrecy would be decreased life expectancy for the wife, due to her ignorance of the need for antiretroviral treatment (ART), and the risk of the wife passing on HIV to her newborns, and to her older children, through bodily fluids contact (due to her ignorance of the need to take precautions).

THE GREATER HIV INCIDENCE AMONGST HISPANICS AND AFRICAN AMERICANS

The greater Truvada-reported incidence of HIV infection amongst MSM Hispanics and African Americans may have to do with socioeconomic status and affordability of condoms; this is just an intuitive thought … I have no way to back it up factually.

THE VERY HIGH TRANSGENDER HIV STATISTICS

According to the Truvada statistics, of the 1.4 million transgender Americans, about 1 in 5 are HIV positive. Truvada estimates the risk that a transgender woman will have HIV is 34 times more than that for adults who identify with their birth sex.

Intuitively speaking, this may have to do with a greater proportion of transgender Americans being polyamorous, or maybe being employed as sex workers? For instance, in Wikipedia I read that about 13 percent of transgender women have participated in the sex trade …

Link: “Transgender sex worker,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transgender_sex_worker ..

… compared to 1 percent of American women overall …

Link: “How Many Prostitutes Are in the United States and the Rest of the World?” in ProCon.org, 11 January 2018 … https://prostitution.procon.org/view.answers.php?questionID=000095 ..

My thought on that is, it could be that the greater the number of sexual partners, either through polyamory or through sex work, the greater the likelihood of contracting an STD, including an increased likelihood of contracting HIV. This is just a thought; I do not have the statistics on it.

DIAGNOSED HIV INCIDENCE VERY DIFFERENT FOR MEN AND WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES

Again according to Truvada, the risk of men being diagnosed as HIV positive is more than three times greater than that for women. I believe this may be because men are more aware of the need to test, and if they test positive, are unwilling to let their wives know that, because of the social stigma.

CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, AS WELL AS MEN, TESTING FOR HIV ANNUALLY

I cannot overemphasize the importance of everyone in America testing annually, provided they have not yet been diagnosed HIV-positive. This includes women and children as well.

HOW TO GET AN HIV TEST

A while ago I read that, here in California, physicians were required to report social security numbers of AIDS patients to Sacramento, the reason for this being that documentation of the social security numbers would prevent duplicate reporting and consequent false inflation of the AIDS statistics here. Whether this also applies to positive HIV results here in California, I do not know. And no doubt, required documentation on the progress of the pandemic varies state by state.

Intuitively, I feel that the thought of being reported to Sacramento may cause people to avoid testing. They may feel, possibly because of the earlier social stigma of AIDS, that something just awful might happen to them if Sacramento finds out. Maybe their friends and neighbors will find out. Maybe they will lose their jobs because of it. Maybe they will not be welcome at church anymore. Maybe their children will be expelled from school because of it.

These kinds of fears may needlessly prevent Americans from testing for HIV, here in California, even though Medicaid and Medicare provide for annual HIV and AIDS tests: People may delay in testing, through concern that positive results here in California might be reported to Sacramento, and that they might be subject to community disparagement because of test results.

For those concerned about the social stigma of a positive HIV diagnosis, it is good to know that the large drug stores such as Rite-Aid, Walgreens, and CVS carry HIV diagnosis kits on the shelves near their pharmacies.

My understanding is that the saliva test available from the large drug stores is about 90% accurate, provided the test is done a month or more after sexual contact. Ninety percent is not such a good rate of accuracy, but the advantage, for those concerned about the AIDS stigma, is that if you pay cash for the kit at a pharmacy where no one knows you, then no one will know you took the test, and no one will know your diagnosis. And also, you will know the test results immediately.

There is another test available at some of the large pharmacies … a blood test for HIV. My understanding is that this type of test is about 98% accurate, for those who wait a month after sexual contact before testing. That is a pretty good rate of accuracy, but as I understand it, the blood sample must be sent out to a lab, which means that the lab will know the results of your test. Further, it will take time to get the test results back from the lab.

It is also possible, in some cases, to go to a Family Urgent Care clinic and pay cash for an on-the-spot HIV blood test. This would be a good alternative, I feel, for those in communities with Family Urgent Care clinics so equipped, and for whom time and accuracy are of the essence.

Once a person tests HIV positive, then the thing to do, I feel, would be to ask their physician about available antiretroviral treatments (ART). According to what I have read, ART is very helpful in delaying the occasional outbreaks of AIDS sickness that occur amongst those Americans with the virus. I have also read that Medicaid and Medicare insurance will cover medical treatment.

THE DANGER OF YOUNG CHILDREN CONTRACTING HIV

Is the Drug Trade Targeting Young Children?

Intuitively, from the clair plane, I feel that the drug trade is now targeting preschool children, with 8-year-old children as drug peddlers. Young children have insufficient money to purchase drugs, once addicted, may turn to petty theft from cars and homes to pay for continued drug use.

Are Youth Contracting HIV from Drug Peddlers?

Pertinent to the global HIV pandemic, and again, intuitively speaking, it seems to me that adult drug peddlers sometimes may offer drugs to young children in exchange for sex. Adult drug peddlers are higher risk for HIV and AIDS; thus the danger exists of young children getting HIV because of drug addiction.

Likelihood of ‘Blooms’ of HIV amongst Youth in Communities Nationwide

Because of permissive sexual practices among young people today, it seems to me likely that, once one sexually active child in a school contracts HIV, the likelihood will be that most of the children will have HIV with six months or a year.

Increase in After-School Petty Crime May Forewarn of Youth HIV ‘Blooms’

Again in clair vision, I feel this is creating ‘hot spots’ of youth pandemic nationwide. My feeling is, youth testing, again because of the AIDS stigma, is woefully lacking in most locales; I may be wrong about this, though. If my intuition turns out to be true, then a way to predict HIV blooms amongst youth in America would be to tabulate after-school petty theft from automobiles and homes … These might indicate that drugs are being sold to school children.

LIFE EXPECTANCY FOR CHILDREN WHO HAVE HIV

As you may know, to date there is insufficient research on antiretroviral treatment (ART) for youth; the difficulty being that the drugs used for adults may prove damaging to the bodies of growing children. Thus, infection with HIV is more dangerous for young children, than for adults, and has a much greater impact on their life expectancy.

The data on life expectancy for children in their teens who contract HIV are better than for newborns and toddlers who contract HIV. My feeling is, this may be because teens have less length of time to wait before antiretroviral treatment can begin, than do very young children.

There is, as I understand it, a high likelihood that people with HIV will have newborns who are diagnosed HIV positive. Most newborns so diagnosed, as nearly as I can tell, are not surviving to puberty. Thus a young local population that has a ‘bloom’ of HIV infection is unlikely to have viable offspring.

HOMELESS AND OUT-OF-WORK CITIZENS AS A MANPOWER RESOURCE FOR TOWNS HARD HIT BY THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC

The life expectancy of people who contract HIV in adulthood is much greater than that for those who contract HIV in youth, because of the availability of antiretroviral treatment for adults, and the relative lack of availability of ART for youth.

Thus the likely scenario of blooms of HIV incidence amongst youth in communities here and there, across America, to do with the drug trade, and resulting in inability of youth to have viable offspring. Towns with such HIV blooms amongst youth will, in the coming decade, most likely experience a projected demographic of stagnant or declining workforce.

In situations where American towns experience such a demographic because of the pandemic’s effect on their youth, the nation’s homeless and out-of-work population may be seen to be a resource for manpower in the decades to come. These homeless and out-of-work citizens may take the place, in the work force of towns hard hit by the pandemic, of the children of today’s children that cannot be anticipated to survive.

Even those of the homeless and out-of-work sector who test positive for HIV may provide many years of manpower to their communities, provided they have access to current antiretroviral treatments (ART).

THE IMPORTANCE OF NURTURING HIV POSITIVE NEWBORNS

In every plague past of humankind, there has emerged a population of plague-resistant remaining human beings. I have no doubt but what that will be the case with the worldwide HIV pandemic.

The issue is, to preserve the health of as many newborns as possible, even if they are HIV positive, as some of these newborns may survive, and may have HIV-resistant genes that allow their immune systems to be healthy, despite the infection. I see from this article that about 1 percent of Caucasians may be HIV-resistant …

Link: “Anyone Immune to HIV? A genetic mutation that blocks HIV may hold the key to future treatment and, perhaps, a cure,” by Elaine Mendus and Trudy Ring, 23 March 2016 … https://www.hivplusmag.com/research-breakthroughs/2016/3/23/anyone-immune-hiv ..

I feel certain that other races and cultures will be found to have individuals with HIV-resistant genes as well.

Thus my own estimate for an HIV-resistant group of people worldwide, who are able to produce viable offspring, is in the more hopeful range of 10 to 20 percent of the current world population

300-YEAR PROJECTION WITH REGARD TO MINIMUM VIABLE HUMAN POPULATION

The world population is now 7.53 billion. Were this population to be reduced to 1 percent over the next 300 years, the world population will have declined to 75.3 million. From my reading, this is well above the minimum viable population for humankind …

Link: “Minimum viable population,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_viable_population ..

If my more hopeful estimate of 10 to 20 percent HIV-resistant people worldwide were to prove true, then the prospects for continuance of humankind on Earth would be all the better.

Thus my intuitive projection, going forward, is that there will be a decline in population over the next few centuries, and a strengthening of the human gene pool. There is, I feel, an excellent likelihood that humankind will retain a firm footing amongst Earth species, and with a lesser ongoing negative impact on the ecosphere.

THE OUTLOOK FOR HUMANKIND

This is a pandemic like any other. Infection is not a mark of disparagement or a social put-down; no more so than was the case with other pandemics in human history. The more compassionate understanding and loving kindness each community can bring to bear in regard to this very difficult situation, the better it will be for everyone.

As the pandemic continues on a global scale, our best hopes for humankind lie, in the short term, in increased awareness of the prevalence of the pandemic, in lowering of AIDS stigma consciousness, and in voluntary annual testing by men, women, and children of all ages, with medical treatment for those who test positive.

In the mid term, there is hope for healthwise changes in sexual practices, and for new medical regimes. And in the long term, our hope as humankind lies in the presence in our gene pool of HIV-resistant populations.

I ask God’s blessing for each of us, in these difficult times. May we all be blessed with good health, abundance, and happiness in the coming years.

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