We Can Prevent COVID-19 Deaths in Prisons and for Homeless Now Without Administering COVID Vaccine . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 16 January 2021

Dear Ones,

I write this blog for prison health care officials in the United States, and for agencies that look to the welfare of the homeless in this nation. I offer a timely, cost-effective solution to COVID-19 deaths among these populations, as a stopgap measure until the COVID vaccine can be provided to them.

I see that people in prisons and the homeless are not slated to receive the COVID-19 vaccine until Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan. (1) Yet prisoners and the homeless are at very high risk for COVID-19 deaths (2) (3); of concern on a par with residents of adult care facilities.

In the long run, I feel that this country’s disregard of the urgent need of the downtrodden … the indigent, the homeless, those judged lacking or wrong … will be seen as a great disgrace, a blot upon the escutcheon of our honor as a nation. But in the short run, because our hopes of liberty and justice for all are so bound down by our fears for our own lives and those of our families … so ringed round by notions of danger lurking everywhere … I feel that Americans may see prisoners and the homeless as adding to the notion of the bête noire that prowls through their unsettled dreams.

Government and politicians know that punishment of the downcast will be a sop to the masses, and are bound to act in such a way that the fears of the people are assuaged. Considering the social unrest that growls through the nation, hungry for work, hungry for recreation, hungry to enjoy once more the prosperity of former times, I can hardly hold government and politicians culpable in that regard.

There are other ‘fear factors’ in the news right now. For instance, I see that supply chain shortages are anticipated in the rollout of COVID-19 vaccine distribution. (4)

As well, there are two new strains of COVID that add to the currently very high level of stress most Americans are experiencing …

  • The very infectious strain in Europe, which I feel may have hit California last week, and may be responsible for greatly increased numbers of infection soon, bringing the numbers closer to those Europe has suffered in recent month; (5) and
  • A mutant strain in Brazil, which may render the COVID vaccines somewhat less effective. (6)

These two new strains add to the public onus of COVID-19 concerns, and by my lights, might make it continue to be difficult for the public to place emphasis on the plight of prisoners and the homeless, and their urgent need for the COVID-19 vaccine, who might be viewed in a less felicitous light, for placing a burden on the social system.

I understand the reaction of health care planners nationwide to serve first those whose lives are deemed to be most of value to our communities, and that prisoners and the homeless may not be high on the distribution list for that reason.

Thus I feel there can be no hope of timely COVID vaccine distribution to prisoners and to the homeless. I say this for prison health care officials in the United States, and for agencies that look to the welfare of the homeless in this nation.

Yet there is a timely, low-cost answer to the urgent problem of COVID-19 deaths among prisoners and the homeless. That answer lies in the recent finding of the University of Denver that the ordinary, everyday flu shot prevents severe COVID-19 symptoms …

Link: “Ordinary, Everyday Flu Shot Prevents Severe COVID Symptoms,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 9 January 2021; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-lbl ..

You may not have heard about this startling finding yet, and the reason for that may, I feel, lie with Big Pharma, and the need of COVID vaccine research and development companies to recoup their investments. Big Pharma’s concern for profit is understandable, considering the investments that have been made in rapid vaccine development; but I feel certain that, long-term, those with approved vaccines will see good profits. After all, the need is very great for these products, and will be great for years to come. So I feel.

If severe COVID-19 symptoms are prevented in most cases, for those who receive the everyday, ordinary flu shot, then there will be many fewer deaths. Prison health officials and agencies providing health care for the homeless might turn to administration of the annual flu shot as a means of preventing COVID-19 deaths among those in their care.

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

What It Means That China Ordered 1M Doses of COVID Vaccine . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 January 2021

Dear Ones,

I was interested to read this article …

Link: “Coronavirus: China Set for 100 Million Doses of BioNTech Vaccine Amid Roll-Out of Shots Overseas,” by Simone McCarthy, in South China Morning Post, 16 December 2020 … https://www.scmp.com/news/china/science/article/3114172/coronavirus-china-set-100-million-doses-biontech-vaccine-amid ..

This article sets to rest the urban legend that China developed COVID-19 as a germ warfare technique, and that China had given its citizens an antidote it developed, with intent to overthrow the Western world, If all this had been true, then China would surely not need 100 million doses of the vaccine, do you not agree?

COVID is a difficult health challenge for the world, I know. But looked at in another light, it may have the seeds of blessings for humankind in it as well. For instance, the reality that the whole world is facing the same health challenge together may help the nations of Earth work more harmoniously together both now and in future.

In every storm there is a silver lining, as the old saying goes. In these stormy times, I feel it is good to spot that silver lining, and know that though there may be darkness all around, still good may come of it.

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

Ordinary, Everyday Flu Shot Prevents Severe COVID Symptoms . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

IN THE NEWS: ORDINARY, EVERYDAY FLU SHOT PREVENTS SEVERE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

Here is proof from the University of Denver that getting a standard flu shot causes those who catch COVID to have mild symptoms rather than severe symptoms. The proof came from a brand new, exquisitely crafted antibody test developed partly by a Denver company …

Link: “DU Scientists Develop Breakthrough COVID-19 Antibody Test,” by Mark Koebrich, at 9News, 7 January 2021 … https://www.9news.com/article/life/senior-source/colorado-covid-university-of-denver-covid-test/73-fd032677-b592-462f-953c-555f2cb86789?fbclid=IwAR20Xvm_wHntPOIPYJ55QJF1m5mCwYP5QuuC-jQcR4jmOnHJHrYJsLKSIEI ..

I know it is hard to suss out the facts from the linked-to article because it concentrates, as you say, mainly on the antigen test, which is very good news in and of itself. Apparently, the fact that an ordinary, everyday flu shot prevents serious COVID symptoms was just a serendipitous … but amazing … fact the companies involved gleaned during their data analysis.

On the page cited above (which was dated 7 January 2021) it is bullet number 2 in the video title: “Those with flu shots have mild symptoms.”

How could it possibly be that news that good would be bullet number 1? I had to look at the video three times to believe it. Then I looked at the video in the link, and it explained the same thing. At 01:10 in the video the news spokesperson says “In addition to finding distinct antibody profiles that can indicate whether you will exhibit mild symptoms or severe symptoms, they also found that patients who had a flu vaccine in the past year showed more mild symptoms than those who did not get a flu shot …”

I figure the newscaster must have been talking about the common, everyday flu shot from the pharmacy, because COVID vaccines were not available last year.

From a Google search I see that less than half of adults have been getting the ordinary, everyday flu shot each year. To me, what the means is this:

The people who got no flu shot may be among the ones now getting serious symptoms and at risk of dying during COVID. So if those adults got the regular flu shot, they might have a better chance of surviving  long enough to eventually get the COVID vaccine in late spring or early summer 2021.

Granted, even mild COVID symptoms are no fun whatsoever. But it is better than kicking the bucket, do you not feel?

I have been following LA Times “Tracking the Coronavirus in California” daily statistics on California COVID deaths, and those have been 500 or 600 deaths daily lately. I gather the risk is real for everyone in California right now …

Link: “Tracking the Coronavirus in California,” by Los Angeles Times Staff, updated daily … https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/ ..

I wondered if flu shots are available locally now, so I checked online and it looks like I could go to CVS in my local neighborhood and get a shot today, had I not already gotten one in the autumn of 2020. So a temporary, interim remedy is available today.

I searched online for additional newscasts about this startling finding, but could not find any. How could that be, when the news could save the lives of people in our community?

EVERYDAY FLU SHOT MAY DECREASE PATHOGEN LOAD IN THE BODY, ALLOWING IMMUNE SYSTEM TO CONCENTRATE ON FIGHTING COVID-19

This autumn, with the flu season approaching, even though I intuitively felt I had developed pretty strong COVID-19 immunity because of a bout with the new virus in March 2020, I had a concern to keep my COVID immunity strong in the face of the flu season. Intuitively I felt that the standard flu vaccine would help.

Here was my line of reasoning: both COVID-19 and the standard flu are viruses. People tend to get the standard flu in winter, and getting both viruses at the same time might prove quite a test to my immune system. I figured, the fewer pathogens my immune system had to contend with during the flu season, the better off I would be.

Support for Pathogen Load Theory from 1918-1920 Spanish Flu Pandemic

So if the standard flu vaccine succeeded in knocking out the one threat, then my immune system would be able to concentrate on overcoming exposure to COVID, even if there appeared more severe strains of COVID, as was the case with deadly second wave of the devastating Spanish influenza epidemic of World War II …

Link: “Spanish Flu,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu

In fact, a more highly infectious strain of COVID has developed in Europe, and is now spreading to other continents. However, so far it seems the standard COVID vaccine may be equally effective with the new strain of COVID, provided enough vaccine doses can be manufactured to keep up with the increased rate of infection.

If there are not enough COVID vaccine doses during spring of 2021, then at least we can make sure to get the standard flu vaccine, and that may prove helpful.

There is inferential corroboration for this notion in the Wikipedia article on Spanish flu cited above. In that article I note that a vaccine was developed for the Spanish flu on the basis of the notion that Haemophilus influenzae, a bacterium, was the cause of the Spanish flu. That was because the virus itself was too small to be detected under a microscope. The bacterium was large enough to be seen microscopically, and was, in fact, seen in many patients.

Interestingly enough, when people back then were inoculated with the vaccine for the bacterium Haemophilus influenzae, though they still became infected with Spanish flu, less people died of it. I gather the cause of the decreased mortality rate may have to do with lessening of people’s pathogen load, so that their immune systems could concentrate on overcoming the Spanish flu viral infections.

That is the same wholistic or ‘additive’ effect of immune system strengthening that may be behind the Denver company’s finding that getting a standard flu vaccine lessens the severity of COVID symptoms in the people who are contracting COVID during the 2020-2021 flu season.

BE PREPARED FOR ANOTHER YEAR OF COVID-19, JUST IN CASE

I note that the Spanish flu lasted a little over 2 years, with four waves of infection over that length of time, so we may have a little more time to go before things get completely back to normal.

VITAMINS AND DIET MAY HELP MAKE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS MORE MILD

To alleviate the severity of COVID symptoms, I have compiled various vitamin and dietary recommendations …

As well, the blog recommends drinking plenty of water and avoiding fried, fatty, or spicy foods. I can offer my own anecdotal corroboration of the Cambodian diet recommendations for COVID-19.

Does Buffered Vitamin C Make COVID Symptoms Less Severe? by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 9 January 2021

Dear Ones,

When I got what seemed to me to COVID-19 in March 2020, I found that drinking water with buffered Vitamin C powder relieved the COVID symptoms I was experiencing. If you have not yet had COVID, it might be a good idea to have on hand buffered Vitamin C powder, in case that might help relieve your COVID symptoms as well.

Since COVID is a virus, and the flu is a virus as well, it makes sense to me to try over-the-counter flu remedies such as Vitamin C or zinc tablets in case they might help ameliorate COVID symptoms as well.

When I was ill in March 2020, I tried Oscillococcinum and Theraflu as well, but I found both these did not help in my case at all; in fact I felt worse after taking them. From that I gathered, as a working hypothesis, that the simplest flu remedies were the best for me in making my COVID symptoms less devastating.

When a person is that sick, very simple medicines may be the easiest to digest, just as the very simplest clear vegetable broth seemed to be all that I could digest at that time. For more on diet and COVID symptoms see …

On Re-Engineering to Fight New Strains of COVID . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I just climbed to the top of another mountain. While I was at the top I had a notion about what was happening with this resurgence of COVID here in California.

I thought that maybe the northern part of the East Coast, that was so hard hit, may have had a different strain of COVID than the West Coast, which was more mildly hit … and that those of us who were exposed to COVID, asymptomatic or symptomatic COVID, back in March or April, and developed immunity, might have been confronted with the East Coast heavier brand of COVID now, and that we quickly re-engineered so as to be fortified against this new strain … but that the people out here who had not been exposed to COVID priorly, might have picked up the heavier, deeper strain that migrated from the East Coast possibly … the one from New York … and that they might be the ones that are having the higher mortality rate right here in the West Coast now.

That is my thought: We may be dealing with two different strains of COVID. But the good news would be, it seems to me that people here who were exposed to the milder strain are doing very well in re-engineering their immune systems so as to cope with the more difficult strain from New York.

God bless you all. Stay healthy, safe, and calm, happy. Take care, till next we meet.

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

COVID Vaccine Vision: Spectre of Death Walks On . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 14 December 2020; published on 21 December 2020
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a vision I channeled on the day the first COVID vaccine was allowed to be distributed in the United States. There is a very slightly edited Summary after the vision …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I noticed this morning that this is the first day when the COVID vaccine is being distributed in the United States … and so it is a day of hope and joy.

I was on my way to the Post Office. There was a stiff breeze. There had been a breeze all day long. And there at the Post Office, in the usual place, were three … rather than one or two … homeless men. They looked very different from all year long. They looked joyous.

I noticed how, amongst people who have very little, often physical good news … such as that which arrived today … is taken wholeheartedly, and at face value; in such a way that one’s entire being can be informed with joy, whereas those of us whose Awareness is more in the mental realm are not as able to fully appreciate the gift that is ours today.

As I exited the parking lot of the Post Office I noticed those three men again, and I saw a vision of a striding figure, clad in black and with a long, black cloak on … a figure maybe 10 feet tall.

I knew it to be the Spectre of Death. I saw it stride towards the three seated men … and then straight through them, as if they were not there … its cloak flaring out, in the breeze that has been rustling the leaves of the trees in the parking lot.

As it walked on past those men, its cloak closed back down around its own figure.

The Spectre of Death walks on. It walks away, and leaves humankind in its wake. What a wonderful day this is!

Bless you all! Joyous tidings of the new season and the New Year!

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

Dear Ones,

As I recall, I had just come down with COVID-19 on 4 March 2020, a week prior to my birthday hike. I figured I would just as soon die in the wild as in my bed, so I picked a new, seldom used route in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and went for a good walk … not as far as usual, but a pretty good walk, considering. Even in the face of death, I feel, we can celebrate life, for, until the very moment of passing on, we live, and breathe, and may revel in the sights and sounds and scents of the physical world.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones,

t’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

This is my birthday. I am going to show you a beautiful panorama of China Flat … get ready. It is in the Santa Monica Mountains, and here goes … [Shows panoramic, high view of China Flat.] … This is my birthday hike. I came over the mountain from that direction {shows trail and rocky mountaintop]. And now I am going exploring down that trail that you can barely see [shows trail leading down into a high valley] … to the other side here, where I have never been [shows narrow, high valley between two hills] … to see what I can find on my birthday. Pretty cool, huh? Very beautiful. [Completes 360 degree panoramic view.]

Dear Ones, This is the China Flat trail proper, down this way. I will show you … [Shows path through grass along high valley.] … I was going on down the trail thisaway, past that little tree right there [shows medium-sized tree beside trail] … and I suddenly got a feeling there was a mountain lion watching.

So I turned around and I am going back up the hill. They are very hard to spot, because they are just about the color of the rocks here, the sandstone rocks [shows sandstone boulders on hillside]. When mountain lions are sitting still, they look just like a sandstone rock. You would never know … They are that quiet.

I just could not spot it, but I am sure it was there, so I am going on back home now.

  • LIGHTWORKERS AND HEALERS CAN HOLD THE AIDS PANDEMIC IN A NEW LIGHT OF COMPASSION AND FAITH

Dear Ones,

PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN DOMESTICALLY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Last month the major United States news agencies came out with articles on the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department shutting down four major crime units as a result of the Defund the Police movement …

Link: “The County Continues to Defund Law Enforcement,” by Sheriff Alex Villanueva, 1 October 2020 … https://lasd.org/county-continues-to-defund-law-enforcement/ ..

One of the units to be shut down has to do with sexual abuse, including sexual and physical abuse of children. I gather that the COVID-19 pandemic may have something to do with this, as, from a pragmatic point of view, COVID restrictions prevent child abusers from seeking sexual relief amongst the children of families other than their own.

Rather, I feel it must be true that the ‘safer at home’ regulation may have caused an increase of sexual and physical abuse of children within the home. It must be that the function of society with regard to domestic violence is less one of criminal trial and more one of counseling, the intent being to keep the family together. Thus it may be difficult for law enforcement to take a firm line with regard to physical and sexual abuse of children while the children are ‘safe at home’ during the COVID-19 pandemic.

TAKEN TOGETHER, COVID-19 AND AIDS ARE RESULTING IN INCREASED MORTALITY FOR BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN

The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in mortality mainly amongst adults, especially seniors and those with serious medical conditions. It seems that young children are much less likely to die of COVID.

On the other hand, the concomitant AIDS epidemic results in greater mortality amongst the young. Adults with AIDS who are on Western medications are said to be able to live till their 70s, albeit they are unlikely to parent children who are born AIDS-free.

It seems to me that the gravity of the AIDS infected parent’s immune system impairment may be making it more difficult for them to survive AIDS infection. In addition, I feel it may be life-threatening for AIDS infected mothers to bear children to term. Thus the situation of preserving the life of AIDS infected parents is of concern.

HOW IS A LIGHTWORKER TO HOLD THE TRIBULATIONS THAT MANIFEST ON EARTH?

We Lightworkers are very opposed to savage treatment of children. We believe in human rights, and in human kindness, one to another. We feel that to walk in Christ’s footsteps is to bring the Light of Christ Consciousness to our planet, and that this spiritual practice will help uplift our Earth.

Yet so many people here on Earth are enmired in Darkness, in the very social ills that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department until now has helped to prevent, it can be a challenge to maintain a positive outlook despite the way things appear to be, from a 3D and 4D perspective.

In addition, as a Lightworker and a medical editor, I have found it a challenge to reconcile my understanding of the grave effects of these two pandemics with my understanding of Christ’s consciousness and the Ascension process here on Earth.

This is, I feel, on the one hand a time of Great Tribulation. On the other hand, we may envision this time as the Second Coming, and of the upliftment of the world to New Life on New Earth. Yet how may we hold these great sorrows visited upon humankind … these two pandemics, the one laying low, as it does, the sick and the elderly; and the other laying low our hope of tomorrow, the cherished children of our bosom?

HOW THE AIDS PANDEMIC MAY AFFECT SOCIAL VALUES ON NEW EARTH

It came to me this evening that the AIDS pandemic may be held by those of faith in a way quite different from the norm. In a certain Light, it may be discerned to be a gift from God to humankind, which will select for the survival of the New Human on New Earth. The New Humans, I feel, will respect their children and never sexually molest them. There will be no child trafficking. Young people will be chaste, and likely remain faithful to one partner, selected at puberty, for life.

Many of the social issues currently plaguing humankind will vanish from Earth because those who practice sexual molestation of or incest with their children will see the death of their children before child-bearing age. Thus their family lines will end, and the family lines that remain will be those that sexually respect their children.

As children become more scarce, parents will most likely be keeping a careful eye on their children … even more so than they do today … to prevent their children from being snatched up by child traffickers, in whose hands they will surely die of AIDS before childbearing age.

For post-pubertic youth with multiple sexual partners there will be a great number of schools with 100% AIDS children. As I understand it, AIDS is a disease so serious that it poses too great a risk for a woman to have a child. That the child would most likely have AIDS at birth, and then only live a few years, or at most only till just before puberty, means that teens with AIDS will not have children.

The same would apply to young women and men with AIDS and who are sex workers.

That is why I feel the New Human will have cultural values of respect for their children, strict prevention of child trafficking, chastity in teens, absence of sex work, and fidelity to one lifelong spouse. It is the childbearing ability and family lines of those who have different cultural values will be cut off, and their genes eliminated from the human gene pool.

AIDS AND AND CHANGING SOCIAL VALUES IN GEOGRAPHICALLY ISOLATED CULTURES AROUND THE GLOBE

I feel there will be geographically isolated cultures that may continue these social practices for some while because AIDS infection does not reach those areas. After the time lag caused by their geographical isolation, in a matter of a generation or so, the chance HIV infection will occur, and the more isolated regions will, I feel, begin to undergo the process of social value change outlined above.

That would be, in a way, similar to the course of COVID-19 infection in the United States, where we saw much more incidence in large urban areas nationwide, and what seemed to be the less populated states in the north central part of the United States were spared severe infection till the winter of 2020. But with AIDS, I feel, for very isolated cultures, the time lag might be as much as 20 or 25 years.

INVASIVE WESTERN MEDICAL PRACTICES MAY FALL OUT OF FAVOR AS PATIENTS SEEK TO AVOID INFECTION BY AIDS-BEARING SURGEONS

As well, I feel that there will be a turning away from invasive Western medical practices, to holistic and alternative medicine as a means to prevent transmission of AIDS from doctor to patient.

As more and more Western medical practitioners are infected with AIDS, I feel it likely patients will intuitively begin to avoid potential blood mingling Western medical practices such as inoculation by needle and surgery, as the possibility of their getting AIDS from the Western medical practitioners will begin to be perceived. Thus I feel it possible that, for the next 100 years, much progress will be made in noninvasive, holistic, alternative medical applications as alternatives to invasive Western medical practices.

THE OUTLOOK FOR AIDS RESILIENCE BY THE YEAR 2120

I hope that, in the long run, humankind may become more able to be healthy, sexually reproductive, and long-lived despite infection with AIDS. That may take perhaps a century, I feel.

In the meantime, as noted above, there may be a global shift to more compassionate and heart-centered sexual practices, and less invasive medical practices, in the interests of survival of family groups during the four or five childbearing generations that must likely take place before humankind adapts to AIDS as a virus easily tolerated by those of us in good health.

LIGHTWORKERS AND HEALERS CAN HOLD THE AIDS PANDEMIC IN A NEW LIGHT OF COMPASSION AND FAITH

We have before us a Soul learning experience of unprecedented magnitude. For those that are teachers of humankind, let us embrace this experience wholeheartedly. Let us offer solace as we may to those who are suffering, but stand in our own neutral, healing Light, knowing that, despite the suffering all around us, in a deeper sense, all is well.

God is love, is He not? How can it be that He offers us aught but what will uplift and inspire us, were we to see the passing show with His eyes, feel it with His heart, and know it with His wisdom?

For the Lightworker, for instance, this is a wonderful opportunity to rise beyond the aggressor-victim paradigm so oft enacted in 3D and 4D, and to begin to welcome the thought that God does all … even that which we perceive as Tribulation … for the benefit of our own Soul Wisdom.

When we feel dismay, let us say with confidence to ourselves: I will let God take care of everything! God will take care of everything!

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

Dear Ones,

CAN THE WRONG DIET CAUSE COVID DEATH? … TWO ASTRAL STORIES

The Wife Who Insisted Her Husband Drink Soup

There is a couple that I have run across for quite some while in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, California. I stop by their store every once in a while for a snack, while traveling to West Los Angeles.

Last month I stopped by their store. On the astral airs I heard that the husband had come down with COVID. His wife, who is strong-willed, forced him to drink some soup. He (who was also strong-willed) finished the soup and died.

I remembered my blog on a diet by means of which I survived COVID in early March 2020 …

Link: “Community Health: Diet to Diminish the Harshness of COVID-Like Symptoms,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 10 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iAS ..

… and wondered if the husband’s life might have been saved had he not acceded to his wife’s demand that he eat the soup.

The Jewish Man Whose Six Relatives Passed on

I filed that astral story away in my memory, but then came across a similar astral story. I went for routine health maintenance to a doctor. Did he ever look sad. On the astral plane, I asked what was the matter. He said six relatives of his … people who were very important in his life … had passed on of COVID.

I thought it likely, from his name, that he might be of the Jewish culture. I remembered some Jewish friends of mine, in years past, who introduced me to their diet, and that this included eating lots of food, for health. Also, I recall red meat … beef … cooked in various ways, and red wine as beloved dietary customs.

I do not know much more about traditional Jewish diet, but I wondered, with some alarm, if Jewish people might be perishing unnecessarily of COVID from being forced by their family members to eat heavy foods, or to drink alcohol.

Could Intravenous Sugar Be Causing COVID Deaths in Hospitals?

I also thought about my body’s very adverse reaction to sugar when I had COVID, and then thought about the COVID patients in United States hospitals. I wondered if they were being administered intravenous glucose while on ventilators? If that were true, then could it be the glucose is causing these patients to pass on?

I guess there are other cultures round the world that know, as do animals, that it is best to fast on water when very ill, and to find a quiet cubby spot … far from the madding crowd … in which to rest and recuperate. I agree with them, as that technique worked very well for me.

COVID SUPERSTITIONS: COVID CARRIERS OR COVID-SAFE SURVIVORS?

On a similar note, I can tell from the astral airs that false rumors and superstitions are riffing round the noosphere with regard to the COVID pandemic. For instance, I often hear on the astral airs these superstitions …

  • That COVID survivors are ‘COVID carriers’ and ought to be shunned; or …
  • That once you get COVID, you can never get over it.

I have done some reading on COVID …

Link: “Some Have Tested Positive for COVID-19 After Recovering. What Does That Mean? There Is No Conclusive Evidence That People Can Become Reinfected with COVID-19. But Researchers Are Following Thousands of Patients to Be Sure,”  by Erika Edwards, 19 May 2020, in NBC News … https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/some-have-tested-positive-covid-19-after-recovering-what-does-n1210361 ..

Link: “Positive COVID-19 Tests After Recovery Can Be a ‘Red Herring’, Expert Says,” by Anuja Vaidya (Twitter), 8 June 2020 … https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/public-health/positive-covid-19-tests-after-recovery-can-be-a-red-herring-expert-says.html … COMMENT: 

From that I gather that the scientific understanding of COVID at present conflicts with these superstitions. Rather, I gather, COVID survivors have been found not to carry living COVID virus inside them after a few weeks, or on the outside, after a month or two.

In addition, the current state of scientific understanding of COVID is that having a bout with the virus, and surviving that bout, provides immunity from the disease in the same way that the COVID vaccine is expected to provide immunity. Surviving COVID is like having been vaccinated with the COVID vaccine. It is another way of becoming ‘COVID-safe’.

Congratulations to those of you who have made it through the illness and come out on the other side, still in physical form! And happy thoughts for all those who … if the news is to be believed … are soon to have the new COVID vaccines available to make them COVID-safe without the discomfort of experiencing the full-fledged disease.

………………..
Sidebar: Could COVID Be a Blessing of Health and Happiness, After All?

On another (perhaps less popular) note: As a Lightworker, I subscribe to the notion that everything that happens here on Earth, happens for the best teaching of Soul wisdom. We who believe Earth is awakening and going through the Ascension process, look to the positive aspects of world events, rather than their negative side.

As to COVID, my own feeling is that many have chosen to leave physical form right now, in this timeline, moving their Soul Awareness to other timelines more propitious to their own Soul learning.

COVID survivors, on the other hand, may find (as have I) that COVID has leant them new physical strength, somehow upgrading and improving their immune systems and their Light-bearing ability.

For those COVID survivors who thought they could not abide the breadth of Light flow of the kundalini energy, it is possible that your post-COVID, buffed up immune system and electromagnetic system may make the kundalini yoga exercises of 3HO (search youtube) a snap and an easy changeup.

The thing I like best about kundalini yoga is that its practice … even an easy set practiced a half hour daily … creates abundance in my life. That is abundance not only of worldly goods, but also abundance of happiness … happiness in the moment, happiness in human relationships, happiness in the joys of the natural world, happiness at work and at play.

………………..

CONCLUSION

Happiest of Thanksgivings to all the world. And a very happy experience with the new, incoming sunspot that appears to be Earth-directed. I feel that may provide us with a blessing of the Creator’s love for the holidays.

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

Combined Flu and COVID Mortality Rate Compared to That of Flu in Prior Years . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

The 2017-2018 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.11 percent, which is 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

The 2018-2019 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.06 percent, which about half as many deaths as in the prior year’s flu season.

Combined deaths from flu, pneumonia and COVID-19 from the when COVID-19 arrived at the beginning of February to the end of October 2020 were 0.11 percent, which is only slightly more than 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

These latter statistics are 3 months short of a year of data. The mortality rate since COVID-19 arrived is running ‘neck in neck’ with the data for the 2017-2018 pre-COVID flu season here in the United States, but about twice that for 2018-2019.

At the end of February 2020 we will have a comparison for a full year of COVID-19 plus influenza-related mortalities.

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

The ‘Haul’ and the Karmic Dumptruck . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 5 September 2020; published on 3 November 2020
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California
This story is entirely fictional.

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a fictional story about the workings of karma. The story was devised during a big heat wave here in the San Fernando Valley. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Is it ever a scorcher today in Los Angeles. I cannot begin to explain it. I have a little story to tell you about the outlaws I have been talking about for a while now, and some money that they cam into. It goes like this …

Far, far away from California, some folks came up with some money; and they said to themselves: We will just give it to the Mafia. The Mafia will know how to handle it; we can trust the Mafia. So they gave it to a guy who gave it to the Mafia. And the Mafia … these are the outlaws I was telling you about … got the money and they disappeared completely. Is that not amazing? All of them disappeared.

I was just wondering what happened to them. So I came up with some stories for you, just for the fun of it. It goes like this …

. . . . .

One of the outlaws decided to go to Key West. There he was, sitting in the Sun in front of a pool; and an alligator walked up and ate him … except for his credit card, which fell out on the grass.

A little child came up, and found the credit card, and gave it to his father. His father threw it in the trash. The trash was picked up by a trash truck, whose compactor crushed it.

. . . . .

Another guy decided to go to the South Pacific. He was sitting on a little island there, drinking a Mai Tai. Then he thought he would go for a swim. While he was out swimming a big wave came up, and washed him onto an atoll. There was no way for him to get off of it just then, so he lay down on the atoll.

He had nothing to eat but polyps; so he ate polyps for a little while. Then he got indigestion; then he got gas … He did not feel so good.

Then he noticed, where his back was lying down on the atoll, that there were poisonous polyps there, and that they made little welts on his skin. Then he did not know what to do, because his tummy hurt, and his back hurt, and he could not swim all the way back to the island. So he waited.

High tide came in, and it gently wafted him off of the atoll and on back to island … where his back still hurt.

So he lay there, wishing he were back in the Wild West, and knowing he could not go back there.

As he lay there in the shade, day after day, finally he felt better.

. . . . .

Another guy … he was a pretty bright guy … decided to go into finance with his share of the haul … his share of the loot … and he decided to invest in the dollar. A few months went by, and something happened to the dollar, in the area where he was; the dollar was destabilized, and he lost all but 2 percent of the money that he had … which he turned into seeds.

And he built a vegetable garden; at least he had something to live on.

. . . . .

Then there was a lady who got part of the haul; she was pretty good looking. She decided to go to a health resort, and tone herself up, and eat good food … that kind of thing … and just have a wonderful time of it.

But while she was there, the COVID scare hit, and people were dying here and there, so she thought she would take her stuff, and go on out and camp in a forest.

There she was in the forest. Then a wildfire went through, and a heat wave went through, and it was no longer possible to live in the forest. So she went back to the health resort. The COVID scare was over, and she decided to stay there.

. . . . .

One of the gentlemen who stole the dough … one of the folks in the Mafia … decided to take his money, and to become a devotee of a Saint known for her wonderful, big heart.

But very soon she found out that he had in mind to suffocate her while she lay sleeping, and take over the long list of her devotees for his own profit … and she made him leave her.

After he left, he felt very sad, because the love that he had hoped for was missing. So he went for a float down the Rio Grande, and he ended up in the Wash Bowl.

His raft overturned. There he was, sitting on the shore. And his raft went on down without him.

Well he was lonely, there on the shore of the wild and wooly Rio Grande, and he was hoping for a companion. And along came a wild, girl goat of the sort that frequent that region.

He made friends with her. And he found, in the love of that goat, the love that no one else had ever given him.

. . . . .

I have sad news to relate as well: When the members of the Mafia who grabbed the money decided to go on their long vacations, each of them killed their current wife. They said that the reason for that repeated act was that their wives knew a little too much, and they could not take them with them.

That was a pretty sad story.

. . . . .

The people that originally lost the money were pretty glum, and they did not know what to do. Finally they figured they could not afford their lifestyle. And they all went to work for MacDonald’s and Carl’s Juniors, and places like that, where they made the minimum wage … which was good for the sanity.

To know that you would be getting your paycheck every week was cool, but it was not much of a paycheck. So they rented an efficiency apartment, and put down pallets on the floor, where each one could sleep in the main room there … which was good, because it allowed them to work on their interpersonal skills. And they became very close-knit, as a group of people.

. . . . .

It seems that some other folks were involved, who were members of the Knights Templar. The Church took a dim view of all that, because in ancient times, there was a problem with Satanic worship, and carryings on, and the Knights Templar were excommunicated from the faith.

History [in this fictional story] repeated itself, and everybody under the aegis of that Church was excommunicated. Some of the people involved were Jesuits, which made the Pope look bad.

The bad press involved made the popularity of the Church go down in the eyes of the world to the exact extent that the new movies about the Papacy had caused that popularity to rise. Everything evened out, in the long run, and the Church went on, thank God, after a minor correction.

. . . . .

And that is what happens when a person tells stories on a day when there is a giant heat wave.

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

Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California . by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged on 31 October 2020; published on 1 November 2020

Dear Ones,

Here are recent trends in COVID cases and deaths in the United States, as compared to California. For my analysis of these trends, please see the caption below the image …

Image: Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 31 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: For the United States, I note that new COVID cases have greatly increased this autumn (as expected because of the flu season) but that new COVID deaths have plateaued at less than half what they were in the Spring of 2020. That may mean that the COVID virus has become less deadly, as was the case with the Influenza virus after the first few years. It might also mean that those most susceptible to COVID were first hit and passed on because of it. Or both might be true: COVID may be less deadly now, and as well, the most vulnerable sector of the United States population may, in the main, already have passed on. In comparing the California graphs to the United States graphs, I note that new California cases are now down-trending, whereas new United States cases are up-trending. New California deaths rose to a new high in late Summer, but are now steadily declining. Comparatively speaking, both the new Cases and the new Deaths graphs bode well for California … CREDIT: Rough sketch based on New York Times statistics.

Richmond Attacker . a drawing by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged and published on 23 October 2020

Dear Ones,

Here is a drawing I made of a man in a nightmare I had on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago. I have described the nightmare in the caption.

Later I thought I must have seen a full-head Halloween mask, maybe even one on a man of another race … maybe even a Caucasian of similar build and with, say, very similar Soul wounding. I have not had found such a full-head Halloween mask for sale online yet; have not had time to take a look.

If such an event had actually occurred, I could see where a full-head mask might be very misleading.

In addition, in the vision, the white ‘slaver’ looked put-on, like a paste of confectioner’s sugar powder with a little water added, for instance …

Image: “Richmond Attacker, Sunday, 11 October 2020,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: I am not completely sure I got the date right. I know it was on a Sunday afternoon, most likely 11 October 2020, that I had this nightmare. A man approached from behind a woman walking on a street in Richmond, Virginia. Moving quickly, he stuck a poisoned prison ‘shiv’ into the outside of her right upper arm. She looked at her arm and saw a piece of metal stuck into it. She could only see the outside of the metal; that was circular and looked about as big as the end of a bullet about 9/16 inch in diameter; there was no marking on it. The end of the weapon pressed the skin around it in a little; there was just a tiny circlet of dark blood outlining the edge of the weapon where it pierced the skin. I intuited that the weapon was thin and hand-shaped, tapering to a very sharp point inside the arm. The woman said: “Oh, look what M— D— did,” and tried to get the weapon out. She said: “I can’t get it out.” Then she fell down face up at the edge of a median curb in the street. Another woman walked quickly up and exclaimed: “I told you to wait right there till I came back. What have you done?” and leaned down to try to help her. The injured woman struggled to breathe; her breaths came faintly. On the psychic plane I said: “Make sure her chin is up to clear the airway.” The second woman did that, then said: “Now it is better.” Then she used her cell phone to dial 9-1-1. When she dialed that number I had the vision of the attacker, which I attempted to portray in this image. There was thick white ‘slaver’ coming out of his mouth. The ‘slaver’ obscured his lower lip. His skin was black; blue-black beneath the eyes, which looked oriental. His face was expressionless.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I came across this idea for a short screenplay while I was walking up to a pharmacy in Los Angeles just the other day. I thought it might have to do with something that had happened there some months back … maybe in March or April … and to do with the COVID pandemic in Los Angeles, as it was felt there.

Being an empath has its drawbacks, and the very first thing I did was, I put myself in the shoes of the person in the story. So when you hear the storyline here, just imagine that it is someone else, not me, and that it may really have happened, and might not.

I think that it expresses very well, though, the feeling that was happening in Los Angeles at the time when the pandemic struck. I think it has a lesson in it for all of us regarding compassion towards the sick in times like these, as opposed to government recommendations, if you get my gist.

Hope you like it. And I hope you are all well and safe and happy, on your journey towards Winter Solstice. Without further ado, here goes …

COVID Eyes

This is a storyline for a COVID memorial film short. It goes like this …

I am standing outside of a chain store pharmacy on a busy sidewalk in a shopping center. I am feeling a little bit sick, and I need to go inside and get some medicine.

I open the door of the pharmacy, with my mask on. I start to take a shopping cart out, and I cough. The security guard rudely bids me leave the store.

So I am standing outside of the door to the pharmacy, and a man walks up with a mask on. I have a 20 dollar bill in my hand, and I begin to beseech the man to purchase cough medicine for me inside the pharmacy and bring it out.

Just as I am handing him the 20 dollar bill, I cough twice. He pulls back, with a look of consternation and anger, and quickly walks inside the pharmacy, leaving me outside.

I am feeling a little weaker, and I sit down on the pavement near the door of the pharmacy. A woman walks up with two little children, and I start to hand her the 20 dollar bill and beseech her to buy me the cough medicine.

But I begin coughing severely, and she quickly hurries the two children inside the door. Suddenly I am overcome with weakness, so I lie down on the pavement on my left side, my left arm out, beyond my head, the left side of my face touching the dirty sidewalk, my right arm over the side of my body, and my right hand palm down on the pavement.

I feel too weak to move, and the coughing increases. [In the screenplay] there is a shot of people’s feet walking past me, to and from the pharmacy, giving me a berth of about six feet on each side.

The day wears on towards noon, and a solitary pigeon begins to walk by. As the pigeon approaches my face, I can see its yellow feet clicking against the pavement, and I cough once. The pigeon veers off towards the wall of the pharmacy, and then leaves my range of vision.

The afternoon wears on to night. In the eveningfall, I have stopped coughing, and I am lying still, in the same position, not having moved at all.

In the middle of the night, there is darkness all around. No one is walking on the pavement. There are no pigeons out. And I lie motionless on the sidewalk. One teardrop mars the pavement near my left eye …

That is the story of COVID in the USA.

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

Don’t Be Roast ‘Pigeon’ for a Crime Gang!

Dear Ones,

Here is a law enforcement ‘what if’ for grassroots neighborhood watch nationwide, and also for law enforcement in our towns and cities …

Let’s say a crime gang … such as one of the United States ‘mobs’ or mafias, or a street gang, or an outlaw gang, or a flimflam group of confidence men … were to be in the habit of cultivating patsies (fat ‘pigeons’ they could pluck).

You may have heard of ‘keeping double books’? This next move is a little like that, but instead they might keep ‘double organizations’.

Here would be the move: They might put up a socially suave ‘yuppie’ front, named ‘such-and-such’. This would be a respect-worthy non-profit organization, a 501(c), and lure the mark into the front organization.

At the same time they might put up a ‘back’ corporation by the same name. The advantage of the ‘back’ corporation might be that it would be harder to track who has the money. For instance, the members of the ‘back’ organization, might be corporate entities rather than people, and so the ‘back’ corporation might represent a tax ‘maze’ for the IRS. Thus it might be a money laundering vehicle, I feel. The idea might be to grab some of the mark’s money as a ‘donation’ to a nonprofit, then launder it through the ‘shell’ corporations which operate a little like the famous flimflam ‘shell games’. That way they might avoid taxation by the IRS.

Then the crime gang spends time gaining the confidence of their ‘pigeon’.

Let’s say the gang has a favored ‘take-down’, that has been working like clockwork for years. For instance, they might have on tap …

  • a consigliere (a mob lawyer),
  • a medical doctor, a medical therapist ‘angel of death’, a psychiatrist and a psychologist,
  • and a law enforcement officer,
  • all working under a mob boss posing as or having ‘under his finger’ a financial advisor.

The MO might be to first to capture the pigeon’s finances through the financial adviser, then misdiagnose the pigeon with a terminal physical illness or a mental illness, then when the pigeon is in a health care facility, to send in the medical therapist ‘angel of death’ for the kill.

Put yourself in the shoes of the ‘pigeon’: A take-down has just been attempted. By God’s grace (and His alone) you have escaped unscathed. The mob has your number, and they know you know their game.

What will they do, you wonder? They will pursue you and kill you, so as to prevent knowledge of their crime gang and their MO from leaking out to law enforcement and the AARP Bulletin’s crime prevention column. They will do what it takes to silence you for good.

Recognizing the deck is stacked and the odds are not in your favor, you the ‘pigeon’ make a run for it back to your home town.

But they know where you live! Through their carefully picked false authorities, and through weight of numbers and collusionary agreement amongst themselves, they present a fraudulent report to your local law enforcement agency to the effect that you have committed the very crimes that are the bread-and-butter of their own crime gang.

An example might be like this: The mob consigliere or his local law enforcement ‘bird in the hand’ tips your local law enforcement precinct that you are a drug trafficker with a drug habit and a street walker.

So your local law enforcement, at considerable expense, stakes out your home to discern your activities. Weeks go by. Your own precinct figures it must have gotten a false lead, and puts a mental question mark by the name of the consigliere or sheriff who provided the false lead.

But they still have a question mark by your own name. So when you go down to your precinct to explain about the crime gang, and offer what you can in the way of names and photos, they decline to accept what you have to offer.

Let’s say your precinct suggests you the ‘pigeon’ go to the FBI. That would make sense for a multi-state crime gang. Our local law enforcement agencies, I feel, are set up to preserve law and order in our local communities, not fight crime nationwide.

I note that the FBI has an online form to report crime tips. Let’s say you go online and make a lengthy report about the crime family … names and addresses, photos, whatever you may have.

Weeks go by. You begin to wonder … Maybe the FBI is swamped with crime reports. Maybe they are understaffed, and can only work on the most ‘in your face’ instances of crime nationwide. Or maybe they just do not believe you. Let’s say … whatever the cause … you the ‘pigeon on the run’ do not hear back from the FBI. And you notice there is no way to contact them personally about it, what with COVID and all.

The crime gang is still hot on the tail of you, their mark who escaped the take-down. You have exhausted the usual crime prevention resources. What to do?

To preserve one’s own life is, I feel, a noteworthy accomplishment when the odds are this stacked. Here is my suggestion: Why not ‘Yelp’ what you have? Put it online, send copies to family, friends, and your Neighborhood Watch, and to any interested lawyers, free of charge. Make sure the crime family knows you have broadcast this information.

The more people who know what you know, the less important it will be to the crime family to end your life.

It seems to me possible that the low-down on crime gangs nationwide is at hand, and just under our noses. We the people of the United States can help mitigate the damage done by crime gangs in America.

Even if our local law enforcement’s hands are tied, even if the FBI does not respond to our plea, we can act on our own behalf, and for the sake of crime prevention in our local communities.

The means at hand, I feel, is grassroots communication. After all, knowledge is power. The pen is mightier than the sword. Let us take up our handhelds and provide that knowledge of the nefarious endeavors of crime mobs to everyone with an ear to hear it.

God bless each of you with courage to soldier on in these stressful times. May we stand together, in communities large and small, against crime and for peaceful, prosperous endeavor.

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

Surviving COVID-19 . referral by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 September 2020

Dear Ones,

“The Sun” has come out with a poignant rendition of one person’s encounter with COVID-19, and most fortunately, their survival through it. I thought it very well written indeed …

I am not the author of the article, but living here in Los Angeles, where COVID has struck randomly and hard, I sense the certain truth of it.

Bobcats and Human Microchips: End Times or Time of New Beginning? . by Alice B. Clagett

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

BOBCATS AND HUMAN MICROCHIPS: END TIMES OR TIME OF NEW BEGINNING?

Yesterday I was walking a new trail in Santa Clarita, California. When I started out there was not a car in the parking lot but my own. I went along until the track became a maze of trails not on the map, and then turned around and came back. Nearly back at the parking lot, I was about to pass an old oak tree, which led to a sort of box canyon, up which the trail wended its way.

As I got close to the oak tree, I startled a bobcat that had been lounging in the shade. I was so in awe of its handsome form and lithe healthiness that I forgot to make a video until it was nearly (and quickly) out of sight.

Just after that I saw my first and only hiker of the day, a Latin American gentleman about my own age. When I told him about the bobcat, he decided to turn back as, unlike me, he had not brought along his hiking staff.

He must have seen the cross I was wearing round my neck for, as we retraced the short rise that led to the parking lot, he spoke to me about his conviction that we are in the time of Apocalypse, the End Times, in which people of faith must face many signs of catastrophe.

He spoke of the Book of Revelation and of its author John. He mentioned a passage in Revelation 13, about the number 666, the ‘number of the beast’ …

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon …

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

I have done some blogs about the Book of Revelation, but not a blog on Chapter 13. My hiking companion mentioned a concern he had that the number 666 (the ‘number of the beast’ and also the ‘number of a man’) felt to him to be the human microchip implants which he had heard might have been forced upon all people in India, and might be in use elsewhere in the world.

Then he mentioned that President Trump was requesting legislation be enacted to implant chips in all Americans. That was pretty upsetting to me, following as it did upon my amazement at sighting a bobcat, and my surprise at encountering a fellow hiker.

In fact, when I thought about it, the conversation of my fellow hiker was the first I had had with anyone at all, at length and in person, since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Los Angeles at the beginning of March 2020. Swiftly I computed that it had been 6 months since I had had a lengthy conversation with anyone at all, in person and within a distance where I could hear their voice on the physical plane.

I realized that people all across the globe are experiencing a kind of inward turning, a lack of social contact, that is causing our minds to come up with novel and often ‘out there’ explanations to encompass and express the novel and hence fear-provoking health concerns that have come upon all the countries of Earth. I did not know what to think about this theory of the sign of the beast and the human microchips.

As we reached the parking lot, though, we both agreed that in these times faith is of the utmost importance; that through faith we can overcome every obstacle of these times, no matter how insurmountable that obstacle may seem. We agreed too that those who align with Christ Consciousness will rise above the troubles of life on Earth, and that now of all times is the time in which this may best be happening to each of us.

The explanation that my hiking companion had about the ‘number of the beast’, President Trump, and human microchip implantation concerned me enough that today I took a look online about it. I was greatly relieved to find that most likely the CHIP associated with President Trump is the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), whose funding is in question.

That funding for CHIP is in question is an issue to which Congress must, I feel, rise. What could be more important to this country than the welfare of our children? It is, I guess, just as important as avoiding legislation to force Americans to have microchip implants. Both are important issues, I feel.

Because people globally are, I feel, carrying a greater than usual burden of anxiety over the state of the world right not, it is possible we may leap to unusual decisions about a number of legislative issues. That is a danger that Americans face right now: How to make wise decisions even though we are under a lot of stress because of the pandemic.

Right now I feel the thing for our legislatures … whether national, state, county or city … to do might be to make legislative decisions that decrease the burden of stress on all Americans. That lessening of the national burden of stress will help us to turn our visions of Apocalypse and End Times into the joyful visions of our Lightworker community: visions of a Second Coming of Christ Consciousness for all those who wish to embrace it; visions of a Time of New Beginning, and of New Life on New Earth for each of us, the New Humans.

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

REVELATION 13 (KJV, Public Domain)

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

How Many Californians Are COVID-Safe? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says …

Image: “Youth Soccer in Small Town USA,” by Derek Jensen, 2005, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Youth-soccer-indiana.jpg … public domain

Written and published on 1 September 2020 by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

How many people here in California are COVID-safe? The figure is changing rapidly, and improving every day.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS ARE COVID-SAFE TODAY?

As of today, there have been 712,276 tested cases of COVID-19 in California, according to the Los Angeles Times. Only those people are being tested who exhibit COVID symptoms.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently holds that many more people … maybe even 40 percent of all the people in the United States who get COVID … are asymptomatic.

If 712,276 people so far are symptomatic and tested, and these are 60% of the people in California who have gotten COVID, then the total number who have had COVID in California would be 712,276 (symptomatic) divided by .6 = 1,187,127 people (symptomatic or asymptomatic).

Of these, 13,018 have died. Thus the total number of people who are now COVID-safe in California is 1,187,127 people who have had COVID, less 13,018 COVID deaths (as of today, according to the Los Angeles Times). That would be about 1,174,109 people … over a million … who are COVID-safe in California as of today.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS WILL BE COVID-SAFE IN TIME?

The population of California is 39.5 million. If deaths from COVID continue at the same rate as before, and the COVID vaccine is not made available, as hoped, this fall, then as the pandemic runs its course, how many California will end up COVID-safe? Here are my figures …

x / 39.5 million people in California = 1,174,109 COVID-safe people in California today / 1,187,127 Californians who have had COVID

x = (1,174,109 / 1,187,127) x 39.5 million

x = 39,066,844 Californians who will be COVID-safe after the pandemic ends.

Counterfeit Laundering – Safe Deposit Box Substitution Gambit . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 2 February 2020; published on 16 August 2020
Location: Los Angeles, California

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear ones, there is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would tell you about a scary astral story that went by the window of my imagination some years ago. I was vacationing, and not here in Los Angeles. I had a funny feeling that something awful might happen … like a premonition of disaster … but I did not know what.

I figured it was not really going to happen, but to be on the safe side, it might be good to put some money in a safe deposit box. I found out since then that putting money in a safe deposit box is a very bad idea; it is not a very safe thing to do.

But back then I thought, you know: I will put a little money into a safe deposit box, and leave it there in case the worst happens; and at least I will have a little cash.

Quite some amount of time went by. I was getting near the end of my vacation; and I had an astral dream. I dreamt that a police officer who was crooked wanted to send me to jail for potentially interfering with a drug operation in that town.

I do not know that there are drug operations in that town; in fact, I do not think there are. Maybe it was in a different town, and I just received the dream about it, but it was happening elsewhere. That is frequently the case.

But so anyway, the dream kind of terrified me, because in the dream, this police officer went to my bank … you know, dreams often convert the national news to a person’s own sphere of endeavors  … and took the money out of my safe deposit box, and substituted marked counterfeit bills.

And so I had had another premonition. So I went back to the bank, and took the money out of the safe deposit box, and gave it back to the bank just there and then. So the money never left the bank, and they credited it to my account.

So if the money was counterfeit … it seems unlikely; I was probably pegging on somebody else’s scary astral story … But let’s say the money was counterfeited, then I guess the bank bore the brunt of it.

I do not know what a bank would do, in a situation like that. That would be a tough one, because it would be stuck with however much in counterfeit bills that were basically the responsibility of a police officer who was laundering counterfeit money for the drug operation that he was supposed to be preventing there in that town.

Apocryphal though this story may be, I feel we should look out for situations like that all across America, as times are tough, and people are resorting to all kinds of things to make ends meet. That is my thought.

The takeaway is: Let the banks be careful as to what is happening. Maybe they could develop guidelines prior to something like that happening, to make sure that they do not get stuck holding the bag.

All right, you all, I know this is a weird one. You all take care, and welcome to February 2020. It is looking to be a really wonderful year in terms of Soul clearing.

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

Dear Ones,

I read in the Los Angeles Times that 99 people passed on of COVID in California yesterday (which seems like a pretty scary number, to me) …

Link: “Tracking the Coronavirus in California,” in the Los Angeles Times …  https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/ ..

I have been seeing these pretty high statistics for some time, here in California. Today I wondered how likely it would be I might see a person pass on of COVID, so I crunched the numbers. Here is what I found out …

There are about 41 million people in California, per Google.

(99 COVID deaths yesterday) divided by (41 million California population) times 100 (to get percent) = 0.0024 percent, which is to say, 0.0024 per 100 people.

That decimal point is way too small, so I recalculated for the number of deaths per 10 million people, like this …

(99 COVID deaths) divided by (41 million California population) times 10,000,000 (to get number of deaths per 10M) = 24 COVID deaths per 10M people. I guess I would have had to see 10 million people yesterday in order to see 24 people pass on of COVID?

But I don’t see more than 10 or 20 people on a usual day.

I thought to recalculate how many California people it would have taken to have 1 COVID death in the group yesterday. I figured it like this …

(99 COVID deaths) divided by (41 million California population) = (1 COVID death) divided by (‘x’ number of California people)

99 / 41,000,000 = 1/x
x = 41,000,000 /99 = 414,141 people

So I might expect to see 1 COVID death yesterday had I been amongst 414,141 people.

But I only see 10 or 20 people daily. Under lockdown conditions it seems to me I might never see a COVID death. That would explain why things seem so normal here in the San Fernando Valley, I guess.

Let’s say I took a public bus to work and served food to visitors at a fast food restaurant drive-in window. How many people would I have met yesterday in that case?

Let’s say I was one of 20 people on the public bus going to work, and one of 20 people on the bus on the way home. That would be 40 people encountered on the bus.

I see here that a fast food restaurant serves about 300 customers a day …

Say there are 3 customers per car, and I am one of four servers in a 24-hour period. That might mean the fast food restaurant serves 100 cars a day (which is 300 customers divided by 3 people per car). I am one of four servers, so I might serve a fourth of the 100 cars daily. That would be 25 cars, and 25 drivers that I encounter daily.

Then there are the 10 people at home and on my own street, neighbors and friends.

So the total people encountered by a fast food server daily in California would be 40 on public transit, 25 cars served at the fast food drive-up window, and 10 people at home or on my street.

That would be a total 75 people I meet daily as a fast food server. As figured above, there is one daily COVID death in California per 414,141 people. That would be a great many more than the 75 people I would meet as a fast food server. So, I am guessing, the likelihood I might see a COVID death while serving fast food is still quite low.

I just wondered about this, as the Los Angeles Times daily COVID-19 statistics seem pretty scary to me. I guess we are not that likely to see anyone passing on of COVID during the entire course of the pandemic … which, to me, is very good news, in a way.

In love, light and joy,

Shop Till You Drop Dead of COVID? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

The ‘word from on high’ is: HVAC in retail stores across Los Angeles may be causing customers to catch COVID-19. That, I theorize, would be because HVAC in retail stores may be causing increased COVID-19 ‘viral load’ for shoppers. Some shoppers no doubt have the virus; when they sneeze, they aspirate the virus into the air.

The HVAC then circulates the virus throughout the store, and other shoppers breath it in. To inhale the virus is an ‘insult’ to a person’s immune system, I posit. The more the ‘insult’, the greater the ‘viral load’, and the harder it may be for the immune system to confront and overcome the virus without exhibiting serious COVID-19 symptoms.

I urgently ask Mayor Garcetti and Governor Newsom to mandate that California retailers sanitize the air filters in their HVAC systems daily.

I urge that President Trump propose similar measures to managers of high-rise buildings nationwide, with emphasis on New York and New Jersey.

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

COVID-19: Two Possible Timelines for End of Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 12 July 2020; published on 13 July 2020

  • FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE
  • SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

Dear Ones,

Here are two possible timelines for the end of the COVID-19 pandemic …

FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE

I read in a BBC article that a vaccine for COVID-19 is expected to become available in mid-2021. That would be about a year and a half after the beginning of the pandemic ….

Link: “Coronavirus Vaccine: When Will We Have One? by James Gallagher, at BBC News, 8 July 2020 … https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51665497 ..

If that were to prove true, and if everyone were to be vaccinated next year, then people will not be running into active virus as much in the people they meet.

For those who have had the virus, and have built up their immunity, that would be good, as their immune systems would not need to fight off reinfection through exposure to other people’s active viruses while working or shopping.

It seems to me that getting flu this winter (in 2020) might make it harder for the body to keep up a strong COVID immune response, simply because it might be ‘fighting on two fronts’ at once. But if there is a vaccine available mid-2021, then that year’s winter flu season would likely offer less of a challenge to COVID-susceptible people.

SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

The deadly Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 lasted 2 years and 2 months; I think that might be a timeline to plan for should there be no viable vaccine. That would put surcease at April or May 2022; quite some while away, but, I feel, well worth keeping in mind.

It might not seem so, but there will be an end to the pandemic one day. That is the history of pandemics down through time.

God bless you all and keep you safe. May you have plenty to eat, and a good roof over your head, and may each day present you with a new joy in His great Creation.

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

COVID-19 and the USA: Is the Death Count Higher or Lower Than Expected? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Given the press on the state of COVID-19 in California since the Fourth of July, I checked whether the greater picture for the pandemic in California, and in the United States overall, is grim or reasonable. Here is what I found out …

There is a question whether deaths due to COVID-19 are being misclassified on the high side in the United States currently, similar to the issue they were being misclassified on the low side in March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are aware of this issue, but cannot yet quantitate it, as there are state-by-state issues regarding standardization of statistical reporting.

Thus it seems reasonable to look at overall deaths in the United States overall, since the beginning of the pandemic in February 2020, and also state-by-state. That way we can ascertain whether overall deaths (including COVID-19, flu, pneumonia, and every other cause of death) are higher or lower than expected.

I turned to the CDC for the data. They say deaths in the United States, from whatever causes, are 4 percent greater than expected deaths for the period from 1 February to 4 July 2020. Ball-parking that, we might reasonably assume deaths from COVID-19 to have contributed most of that excess. That is the approach to the data taken as a given by the press and by all levels of  government in the United States, from city government, to state government, to government at the national level.

On the other hand, it could be that there is a range of numbers within which expected deaths are tallied, Taking that range into account, it is possible, from a multiple year perspective, that COVID-19 may not have contributed at all to this year’s excess deaths. It could be we are on the far end of the expectable range of deaths in 2020, and in the coming years there will be less deaths than expectable. In other words, excess expectable deaths this year might not be due to COVID-19 at all. That is the contrarian approach to the data.

From the stance of personal health and safety, it might be good to know which states have the highest numbers of deaths greater than expected since February of this year. We could take a look at deaths due to COVID or whatever other causes; that would be a figure beyond debate.

I see from the below chart that some states have had a notably higher percent of expected deaths than the United States in general, during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. These are Arizona (108%), Colorado (109%), District of Columbia (115%), Illinois (115%), Louisiana (107%), Maryland (116%), Massachusetts (123%), Michigan (112%), Minnesota (105%),  New Jersey (142%), New York (124%), New York City (203%), and Rhode Island (106%).

From this list the standouts in terms of having deaths greater than expected, from highest to lowest, are New York City (203%), New Jersey (142%), New York (124%), Massachusetts (123%), Maryland (116%), District of Columbia (115%), Illinois (115%), and Michigan (112%).

This table has the data in it …

Face Masks Cause COVID-like Symptoms . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 21 June 2020

  • I FOUND PAPER MASKS CAUSED ME TO COUGH SPORADICALLY

Dear Ones,

As people in Los Angeles are required to wear face masks in public because of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been testing various masks while out and about town, and have found that I am experiencing COVID-like symptoms while wearing a face mask and shortly thereafter.

I FOUND PAPER MASKS CAUSED ME TO COUGH SPORADICALLY

In my own experience, I found when I wear the type of paper mask that is rectangular with folds I would cough sporadically. This I find an embarrassment when in a store, and also a concern, as a cough can result in expulsion from a store through the owners’ fear that I might have COVID.

Here is the type of mask I found caused me to cough sporadically when I wore it …

Image: Blue, rectangular, horizontally folded paper face mask … https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61UYv03DuAL._AC_SL1200_.jpg

I refer here to the style of paper mask and not the specific brand of mask in the image, as I have only tested one brand so far.

I FOUND COTTON FABRIC FACE MASKS CAUSED MY LUNGS TO PRODUCE PHLEGM (MUCUS)

I have more to report regarding the cotton fabric face masks sold online. I have tried two kinds so far, each with two layers of fabric; one had horizontal pleats and the other did not …

Images of cotton fabric face masks … https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61zt1-WgSbL._SL1200_.jpg  … and …  https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81uF0e2Oa7L._AC_SL1500_.jpg ..

For me, these did not cause coughing, but they did cause production of thick, clear phlegm (mucus) that came up my windpipe and which I then needed to swallow. The phlegm production would start shortly after I donned the fabric masks, and would continue for some while after I took the fabric masks off.

I realize experiencing these symptoms while wearing paper or cloth masks, or for a while after taking them off, may cause concerns that the symptoms are caused by the coronavirus. In my case, though, I can vouch for the fact that both the coughing and the production of clear phlegm apparently have to do with wearing the masks.

I hope my experience in this regard will be reassuring to others. I feel one way to ascertain the cause might be to notice whether the symptoms only occur during and shortly after mask use. That is just my hunch; of course the thing to do, to be on the safe side regarding COVID-like symptoms is to seek competent medical advice.

I could conjecture that the paper masks might have tiny bits of paper in them that might be inhaled into the windpipe and might cause a tickle that triggers a cough. I might also guess that the effort of breathing through a fabric mask might make heat build up in the lungs, causing the phlegm normally within them to become more liquid and consequently to flow upward more freely. These, though, would be but conjecture, and hardly worth the telling.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on a diet that may help alleviate COVID-like symptoms. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

For those of you that develop COVID-19 symptoms or are diagnosed positive for the coronavirus and have the symptoms, I have a hint that may help diminish the harshness of the symptoms.

Here Were My COVID-Like Symptoms

On 4 March 2020 I began to develop physical symptoms I had never experienced before. At first I felt a thrumming in my gastrointestinal tract, and then a thrumming in other parts of my body. It felt as if my gut brain had sensed something awful in the air, and that my body was somehow concocting remedies for a threat it sensed … whether within my body, or merely in the air, I could not tell.

A day or so thereafter I felt a few sharp pinprick aches randomly here and there in my body. The next day I felt chills coursing through my body, but I had no fever.

In the ensuing days, I felt very great fatigue, such that all I wanted to do was sleep for days. There was a half day of gastrointestinal tract uneasiness. Then whatever it was settled as a moderate cold in the bronchial tubes and lungs, producing lots of mucus or phlegm.

A few days later I found I could get out of bed and walk a few steps without very great fatigue. After that each day was better. I was on the mend. Little by little, I began walking in the neighborhood. Then I went on to moderate mountain hiking.

Then I had a symptom that really worried me: I fell asleep one night, and then woke up to my upper airway popping closed, slightly stuck together with mucus, it seemed. Then as I inhaled it popped open. As to my recollection I had never had such a symptom before, I thought I had best try to find out what was up with that.

What Doctors in the United States Are Calling Symptoms Such as Those I Had

I stopped by one of the local hospitals, and they said my symptoms did not fit their description of COVID-19. They thought I might have symptoms of anxiety. They said they were getting lots of cases of anxious people coming to the hospital … people who thought they had COVID-19 but, they said, did not have it. So they sent me on home.

On the other side of the coin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a great many people in the United States have died this year of causes not diagnosed as COVID-19. Of the 99,000 ‘excess deaths’ that the CDC predicts for 2020, about 32,300 deaths are not diagnosed as COVID-19 …

Link: “COVID-19 Tidbits: ‘General Pandemonium’ Deaths for the United States?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 22 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ihj ..

It seems to me that people with mild COVID-19 symptoms may be going to the doctor or to the hospital, and then diagnosed as anxious, then going home and dying at home of respiratory failure due to COVID. I feel this theory is worth investigation, and hope the hospitals here in the United States will consider it.

A Diet That Helped Alleviate My COVID-Like Symptoms

For those for whom Western medicine has no remedy, I have this to offer: During the course of my March 2020 illness, I found that eating certain foods caused an immediate adverse reaction. It was as if, in the space of a few minutes, alarm bells were ringing all over my body. I would go from feeling not too good, but manageable symptoms, to desperate physical distress in but a moment.

For me, some of the foods that caused this adverse reaction were mucus-forming foods such as wheat flour or dairy; animal protein (fish, chicken, or red meat); solid foods of any kind; refined sugars; alcohol; and foods with chemicals in them.

For me, at first I switched to small amounts of water daily, and that alone. Then a little later, what I could eat was a small amount of broth from boiled or steamed vegetables. Then after a week or so, I could eat a tablespoon or so of watered down bean or lentil soup, with tender, well cooked vegetables mixed in. Days later, I could eat half a cup of the soup.

Thus through very careful diet I was able to alleviate the symptoms of the COVID-like illness I had.

How My Health Is, Three Months After Onset of COVID-Like Symptoms

Today, more than three months after onset of COVID-like symptoms, my diet is more like what used to be normal for me. But I find I want to eat much less food, and I still prefer to avoid sweets, wheat flour, and dairy products.

My physical endurance is back to normal. I am masked but out and about Los Angeles and the surrounding mountains daily.

Thoughts on Gaining Immunity From a COVID-Like Virus

I have slightly more mucus or phlegm production by the lungs and bronchial tubes than is normal. My feeling is that this may be a good thing; I may still be encountering coronavirus in the air, here in Los Angeles, but I may have developed immunity to the virus, and the mucus or phlegm from the lungs may be proof that my body is now well able to quell the virus.

Could Diet Be the Cause of Very Different COVID Impact, Country to Country?

I have been following the World Health Organization’s daily situation reports on COVID …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” by the World Health Organization … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I could not but be amazed at the differences in the numbers of cases and deaths from COVID from nation to nation. It occurs to me that the diet of the peoples of some nations may promote alleviation of COVID-like symptoms. Especially I wonder if the diet of the peoples of some nations may alleviate mucus or phlegm production during pneumonia, and thus help prevent COVID deaths in those countries?

Conclusion

I know we here in the West think less of diet as medicine than do the peoples of the developing countries of the world. That may be because we have universal health care and the benefits of Western medicine.

In the case of COVID-like symptoms, it might be helpful for the people of the United States to turn to diet as medicine. Maybe we could take a look at the diet of people in countries that have been less affected by COVID than has been the United States.

As well, I hope my explanation of a diet that worked for me will be of interest and even maybe of help to those who have coronavirus-like symptoms in the coming year.

I hope everyone will be able to avoid the worst of the COVID-like symptoms through whatever diet works for them, through rest if fatigue sets in, and through God’s graceful kindness in answer to our prayers.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a second video to do with the Triple Eclipse Passage of Summer Solstice 2020. Topics include multitemporality, multidimensionality, and the coronavirus pandemic. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Well, here we are in the Triple Eclipse Passage or ‘Passageway’ … or sometimes it is called a ‘Window’ … to do with Summer Solstice 2020 and two other eclipses. It is just very dramatic. The Light switches and changes as timelines are merged.

Introduction

I have been feeling a little like I am a young chicken molting and changing to larger feathers. And my sleep patterns are very unusual. Maybe some of you who are Lightworkers and healers and so forth will identify with that. And others of you will probably have great tales to tell as time goes on.

I have been putting off talking to you about the multitemporal and multidimensional notion that Lightworkers and healers and channelers and others sometimes have regarding current events. It is because the events are current that I am likely to run into a ‘sticky wicket’. I will try to be brief, and for those of you that are versed in multitemporality and multidimensionality, I hope this will be sufficient.

COVID Crisis from the Stance of the Mass Media

As you may know, the nation and the world face what is termed in the mass media the ‘COVID crisis’, the coronavirus pandemic. Almost unanimously, in the news, this is viewed as a great catastrophe to which we as humankind must rise, which we must face with courage and faith; and we praise those in the community that assist, at risk to their own health, in healing others.

COVID as a Chance to Switch from Negative to Positive Dimensions

That is true, in a way. But there is another way of looking at it too, for those that like that other way better. I, for instance, see, all around me in Los Angeles, people on very different timelines and in very different dimensions from my own.

There are people experiencing fear and anger, which are hellworld scenarios; people extremely anxious over property and health. The extent of their negative feelings determines the worlds in which they find themselves … whether hellworlds or purgatory worlds … that depends on the density of the negative emotions.

We have, as aforementioned, other people who are experiencing faith and hope, and the desire to be of selfless service to humankind. Those people are offering to the people experiencing the other kinds of emotions, a chance to suddenly switch dimensions from negative to positive.

So those people who are ill, or fearful of being ill, have a chance to meet these other people who turn them … maybe for the first time in their lives … from fear and anger and anxiety and all those things, to the notions of faith, hope, charity, joy, and abundance. It is amazing!

There is an opportunity, right now, to choose the negative dimensions … the hellworlds or purgatory worlds … or to choose closer to the heaven worlds, or higher: the fifth dimension, the sixth dimension … on up to the twelfth dimension … or higher still, to the 72nd dimension positive.

Chances for Lightworkers to Transform Dimensions and Timelines through the Incoming Light

There is a great opportunity, here on Earth, from the stance of the Lightworker who believes in multidimensionality and multitemporality. It is very weird: I will be driving down the street, and I will be encountering waves of energy: temporal waves and dimensional waves that keep stirring and changing, to the extent where I need to stop, nap for five minutes, and suddenly recalibrate to whatever timeline and dimension exists at that locus in space … and then we can change up to the higher dimensions, or we can find a spot with the higher dimensions and the higher timelines; some place, for instance, where people have been meditating on their heart energy, or singing God’s praises with their heart energy.

That kind of a place, here in Los Angeles, creates an oasis of Christ consciousness through which … as I spoke of in yesterday’s video … can funnel, in a vortical motion, energy of Christ consciousness and Buddhic consciousness from the Galactic Center down to Earth, and through Earth, so that the people can experience, perhaps for the first time, perhaps after any number of times, Christed and Buddhic consciousness. It is really a rare time on Earth.

On Death from COVID-19, Viewed as Incarnational Choice or Awareness Timeline Changeup

Then there are quite a few people, according to the mass media, who have chosen to pass on at this time, during the COVID crisis. From the stance of a Lightworker, from my own stance, I feel that these people’s Souls have opted for an incarnation that teaches the lessons of Soul evolution, but perhaps without the incarnation dealing with the COVID crisis.

So those people who have chosen to pass on are looking forward to Soul lessons in a different context, in a different incarnation. It is all working out according to the Divine plan, and according to the free will hopes of the eternal Soul of each human being on Earth.

From the stance of a Lightworker, I feel that the Souls of many people here on Earth have chosen to place their Awareness on a different timeline. That decision to exist on perhaps a speeded up, or perhaps a slowed down timeline, has apparently resulted in many people dropping physical form in this timeline.

Those people still exist. They are still eternal Souls in another Awareness timeline. So this is a time of great change and great choice in that regard.

Lightworker View: Caleidoscopic Timeline Merges

With regard to my own self as a Lightworker I clairly see and hear, passing before me on the astral plane, all kinds of alternate timelines. These timelines are changing up, to higher timelines.

All kinds of thoughts and emotions that existed in non-chosen timelines or in chosen timelines in the recent past are blending upwards into the higher Light, so that those thoughts and those emotions will no longer pull my body of Light into negativity in that regard.

That is what I feel. The body of Light itself is becoming far more radiant because of the Light that is coming in, through this Triple Eclipse Passage.

On Remembering Our Soul Choices Regarding These Troubled Times

There is one other thing to do with the people that feel negative or fearful or anxious or angry regarding the current events. The thought I have is that people feel they have been dragged into these current circumstances without their choice, and that they must burden themselves with living through what is about to unfold in this timeline and this dimension in which they find themselves.

Our root and our beingness and our becomingness have to do with the reflection that we are of the Divine nature of God. Each human hologram is a separate hologram created by God in alignment with the Soul’s purpose, which, in the best-case scenario, is in alignment with the Will of God, the Heart of God, and the Mind of God. So I feel.  ccc

The truth of the issue, for people who are reluctant to go through the current unfolding mass media scenario, I feel to be that their eternal Souls chose this timeline in which they find themselves so that the vast choices of this moment would be available to them: the choices of positive mind and heart and Soul … the choices of aligning with Divine intent; or the choices of the media, which have to do with lack of free will, and power over, and poverty in the world, and so on.

So the Soul chose, but the human mind and heart and will do not remember, quite yet, that there was a free will choice to experience these events … to have a choice to meditate; to change the diet and make it more pure; to go for walks; to be with family and to strengthen those bonds with family; and to find creative ways to overcome the issue of lack of employment; to help each other out.

These were choices that the Soul made for a good reason, and that reason is this:  Movement to higher density is not going to occur until these things take place.

It is amazing, really, that so many Souls have made that choice, and so many people do not remember their Soul making it!

Conclusion

We have so many things going on at the same time, at this time. We have the people that are turning from despair and sadness, grief and anger and anxiety, to the experiences of positive emotions and positive thoughts, often aided by other human beings who help to pull them up from the depths of despair and from the negative emotions. Those people are learning to move from the negative worlds … from the negative dimensions … to the positive dimensions. That is one thing.

Then there are the people that are capable of ‘multidiming’ and ‘multitiming’. They are capable of multidimensional and multitemporal surfing. Those people have amazing opportunities today, as they move from place to place (or even sitting in one place during meditation) of making changes in their own body of Light, so that it becomes more perfect … so that their experience of multidimensionality and multitemporality is more uplifted in all regards; so that their choices are more closely aligned with the Infinite.

The people who make those choices are doing so while staying in physical form now, during this time. They are staying in the current Awareness timeline, or in another Awareness timeline that involves the same COVID crisis.

Then there are the people that decided to opt out; they do not like the COVID crisis, and they are moving on, to new incarnation.

And there may be many other things happening at this time, that I have not quite figured out right now.

It is as if all humankind is that young chicken that is molting its feathers and changing. The pinfeathers are coming in, and it is going to have large feathers with which it can fly, pretty soon. That is how I see it: We are all molting and changing and becoming quite glorious.

This is a Lightworker signing off. I hope no one takes offense at my ideas about the COVID crisis. I hope you will, each an every one, find your way free, and find your way through, and find yourself in the highest and greatest and most beautiful of New Realities here on Earth.

God bless you all and keep you safe.

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

The George Floyd ‘Flashpoint’ and Scapegoating of Police in America . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 4 June 2020

  • COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”
  • TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

Dear Ones,

COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”

I wonder if when George Floyd so poignantly said “I can’t breathe” and then passed on, whether that sent a message to us that face masks make it hard to breathe … that COVID also, they say, makes it hard to breathe … and somehow these two, the face masks and the COVID symptoms … are what are being protested, both at the same time, along with undue force by the policeman.

It seems almost as if the suffocation of George Floyd was the acting out in physical reality of our concerns about the pandemic, the concrete symbol of our fears. And now, after the ‘flashpoint’ event that occurred, it is almost as if the police are being pilloried as scapegoats … that our fears for our well-being have morphed into anger at them.

In recent weeks I have been doing an easy yoga set in addition to walking (which I love), and found these help quite a bit to divert my heart from the dramas so much in the news.

TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

It seems likely to me that the events unfolding in the social arena have to do with the high energies of the Triple Eclipse Passage now underway …

Link: “Incoming Light! Triple Eclipse Passage,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 4 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iuS ..

That passage heralds the New. Transforming to the New always requires courage, and overcoming one’s own desire to remain the same. Fear and anger do arise in our hearts, and we must counter these with positive emotions and right action in the world. That way we can become more like Christ, more like the Buddha, and more like Lord Krishna in our hearts and in the living of our lives.

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

Community Alert: Could Wearing Face Masks Be Partly to Blame for the Rioting and Looting? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 June 2020

Dear Ones,

Just now I was reading the Mayo Clinic explanation about the efficacy of wearing face masks in public, and I have a few notions about it. I read between the lines that the cloth masks do not prevent us from breathing germs when we inhale in public, I guess because the cloth fabric is porous.

Nobody has mentioned the psychological effect of wearing masks. People get cues about the good intentions of other people by observing their facial expressions, I feel. When I go to the store and see masked people all around I get an unfriendly feeling because of the masks.

It feels to me like health officials mandate face masks as a way of saying the virus is ‘under control’. The masks are like the ‘magic whistle’ to allay our health concerns. But instead of helping, the face mask regulation is causing me to feel estranged from my fellow shoppers and neighbors in the community.

It could be that the ‘masked marauder’ look is causing people to feel fearful, and that the rioting and looting are a reaction to that fear … As they say, some may choose ‘fight’ rather than ‘flight’ in a scary situation. Getting down to the line, I feel it could be that the mandate about face masks is partly to blame for the rioting and looting in LA.

How do you feel about it? Are the pros of wearing face masks in public when we are not ill greater than the cons?

Here is the Mayo Clinic face mask page where I ‘read between the lines’ about the effectiveness of various sorts of masks …

Link: “COVID-19: How Much Protection Do Face Masks Offer?” by Mayo Clinic Staff …  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-mask/art-20485449 ..

As I read the Mayo Clinic article, the types of masks that are thought to offer protection from droplet aspiration are surgical and N95 masks. While I am not a medical doctor, my profession at UCLA (from which I am retired) was medical editor for some years, which accounts for my being able to read what is left unsaid in the Mayo publication.

What they seem not to be saying is that the cloth masks are effective. Instead, they say that the surgical and N95 masks are effective. I feel this to be misleading, as it causes intelligent people to think one way, when in fact things are another way.

In addition there is the issue of health care officials finding out that the pandemic had spread here in the United States while people were asymptomatic. What the masks do is stop the spread of infectious particles or droplets in the air. But if infectious people were asymptomatic, that would mean they were not coughing or sneezing. In that case they were not spreading infectious particles or droplets in the air, so how might wearing masks have prevented this early asymptomatic viral spreading?

In fact, what was the manner of infection? Was it in the breathed out air, or perhaps through touch?

Then there is the issue of the face masks with the valves that open when the person wearing them breathes out. Those types of face masks would not prevent an infected person wearing the mask from infecting nearby people.

I am left with the thought that surgical face masks might be very helpful when infected people are coughing or sneezing, as these types of face masks prevent spread of infectious particles or droplets in the air. But according to the Mayo Clinic report, not enough of these are being produced to pass out to the general population; instead they are being reserved for health care workers and essential personnel.

Mayo Clinic offers that the general public may wear cloth masks; and the Mayor of Los Angeles then mandated that we Angelenos must do so. That is considerable expense and discomfort to us, which might yet be a sensible consideration if there were a peer-reviewed article showing that fabric masks are helpful in preventing the spread of the virus. Until we have such research, I feel the Mayor of Los Angeles ought to revoke his mandate that we must always wear cloth masks in public.

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

Western States Pact and Possible Decentralization of the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 June 2020

  • FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT
  • POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME
    • Decentralization Stressors
      • COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues
      • The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops
  • COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

Dear Ones,

FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT

As you may know, a Western States Pact has been formed in response to the COVID-19 issue. To date, the states involved are Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, and Nevada …

Link: “Colorado & Nevada Join California, Oregon & Washington in Western States Pact,” 27 April 2020 … https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/04/27/colorado-nevada-join-california-oregon-washington-in-western-states-pact/ ..

This is a power block or united front asking for financial help from the federal government in response to the impact of COVID-19 on their states’ economies.

POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME

While this power block has a focused purpose, it does present a small step towards consolidating a Western economic region, in a way that is reminiscent of this possible timeline for relative decentralization of the United States into economic regions, with less control by a federal government as a possibility in years to come …

Link: “What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 6 December 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-fnm ..

Decentralization Stressors

COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues. Among the stressors, in the current scenario, would be COVID-19 affecting the current economy of the large United States cities; AIDS (which prevents having viable offspring) affecting the Eastern Seaboard economic region (which is hard hit by AIDS) first, and other regions later; and in the short term, inability of the federal government to provide financial aid because of decreased tax payments next year because of unemployment caused by lockdowns this year.

The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops. In addition, here in Los Angeles the price of water has made it untenable to raise crops; water prices may rise elsewhere in the United States as well. For those in the cities, I suggest a power block lobbying for reasonably priced water. For those who can move away from the cities, I suggest moving to regions of plentiful rainfall, so that a sustainable or survival-oriented lifestyle can be maintained if necessary.

COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

My feeling is that riots and curfews are happening in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere because people who have no savings have been prevented from making a living by lockdowns in the urban areas of the United States. My hope is that our mayors and governors will see the wisdom of balancing relatively few lives lost through COVID-19 against social unrest caused by inability to get work.

Italy, for instance, was very hard hit by the epidemic, yet their people are going back to work and reopening churches. In addition, Dallas, Texas is doing so. From available news, the resurgence of COVID-19 in Wuhan, which reopened for business a while ago, has been far less in numbers than the good caused by the ability of the people to feed and clothe themselves.

In other words, I feel that, in terms of lockdown or return to normalcy, we must weigh the common good against our fears regarding possible, but as yet unproven, negative outcomes. For all we know, the worst is over, and better days lie just beyond the horizon, nearly within our ken.

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

Los Angeles Residents – Get Work in Ventura County? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 May 2020

Dear Ones,

This post is for residents of Los Angeles who need to go back to work and have been prevented by the lock down order in Los Angeles. Surely Los Angeles cannot entirely prevent our young people and those of us who are cannot work from home from earning an honest wage.

I see that Ventura County has opened up more possibilities for employment; for instance, it is allowing restaurants to have dine-in service …

Link: “Ventura County gets state OK for more reopenings, including dine-in restaurant service,” 20 May 2020 …  https://abc7.com/reopening-california-ventura-county-reopens-restaurants/6200097/ ..

Why not get work in Ventura County until the Los Angeles lock down ends?

Danger for Hikers and Campers in Ventura County? . by Alice B. Clagett

Excerpted on 28 May 2020 from a blog published on 29 September 2019

  • DANGER FOR HIKERS AND CAMPERS IN RURAL VENTURA COUNTY AND LOS ANGELES COUNTY?
  • NEED FOR INTER-COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT LIAISONS AMONGST COUNTIES ADJACENT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

Dear Ones,

DANGER FOR HIKERS AND CAMPERS IN RURAL VENTURA COUNTY AND LOS ANGELES COUNTY?

In the last few years, I have clairly listened to several astral stories while exploring the byroads and hiking trails of Ventura County north of Ojai and of Los Angeles County north of Santa Clarita. What intuition very strongly tells me is that those of us who hike and camp in rural areas of Ventura County and Los Angeles Cunty are in danger of thefts from our parked vehicles (including theft of electronics, personal items, and tires); theft of the vehicles themselves; burglary of equipment from our tents; and apparently possible violent loss of our lives so that thieves may market our stolen goods and cars without being caught out.

I feel what intuition tells me is greatly increased danger in this regard may have to do with higher water costs for Ventura County and Los Angeles County rural residents, the need for food and firewood for their homes, and the need for feed and water for their livestock. It seems to me reasonable, if these crimes are occurring, to try to find out if local Ventura County and Los Angeles County residents have a hand in it.

NEED FOR INTER-COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT LIAISONS AMONGST COUNTIES ADJACENT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

It is possible that, because of increasing economic stresses in California, residents of small towns and of rural areas … including their law enforcement agencies … may be beginning to band together to protect themselves from outsiders, and to profit by occasional raids on tourists and visitors such as I describe above.

I ask that law enforcement for counties adjacent to the City of Los Angeles reach out, each to the other, so as to form as close bonds of cooperation and information exchange as possible. In that way, we can keep Southern California strong and safe for everyone.

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

The above concerns are derived from intuition and clair perception; they cannot be said to be factual in any regard unless facts are found that support the ‘astral intel’.

COVID-19 Tidbits: Death Rate for California for 2020 To Date . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 22 May 2020; updated on 19 June 2020

[As of 19 June 2020 the death rate for California, using the below source updated, is 5,355 California COVID-19 deaths / 39,510,000 California population x 100 (to get percent) = 0.014 percent California COVID-19 death rate for 2020 to date. That is to say, COVID-19 deaths for California for 2020 to date are still one hundred times less than about 1 percent of the population.]

Dear Ones,

I crunched the numbers, and found the total COVID-19 deaths in California for 2020 to date to be much less than I thought..

There have been 3,609 California COVID-19 deaths to date …

Link: “Tracking coronavirus in California,” by Los Angeles Times Staff, updated 22 May 2020 9:03 am Pacific … https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/ ..

39,510,000 population of California, per Google

Here is my calculation ..

3,609 California COVID-19 deaths / 39,510,000 California population x 100 (to get percent)  = .009 percent California COVID-19 death rate for 2020 to date.

That is to say, COVID-19 deaths for California for 2020 to date are one hundred times less than about 1 percent of the population.

The same formula can be used to determine the death rate for other states, by plugging in the numbers from this New York Times article …

Dear Ones,

Here are a few COVID-19 tidbits regarding predicted death rate from COVID-19 in China …

IMPROBABILITY OF WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION’S DAILY SITUATION REPORTS ON TOTAL DEATHS IN CHINA

I was wondering about the spread of COVID-19 in China, as the World Health Organization Daily Situation Reports have not been listing probable statistics for China since 18 April 2020. For instance, according to the WHO Situation Reports, only 3 additional COVID-19 deaths have been reported for China between 18 April 2020 and 21 May 2020 …

WHO reported 4642 total deaths for China as of Situation Report 89 (data received by 18 April 2020) … Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Situation Report – 89,” by the World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200418-sitrep-89-covid-19.pdf?sfvrsn=3643dd38_2 ..

WHO reported 4645 total deaths for China as of Situation Report 122 (data received by 21 May 2020) … Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Situation Report – 122,” by the World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200521-covid-19-sitrep-122.pdf?sfvrsn=24f20e05_2 ..

In perusing Situation Report 122, I wondered how it could be that there had been insignificant spread of the epidemic in China, as compared with Europe, North America, and Brazil? …

FEBRUARY 2020 MAP OF SPREAD OF COVID-19 THROUGHOUT CHINA

Today I found a map dated February 2020 that shows the virus has spread from Hubei to other areas of China … https://www.nejm.org/na101/home/literatum/publisher/mms/journals/content/nejm/2020/nejm_2020.382.issue-18/nejmoa2002032/20200424/images/img_medium/nejmoa2002032_f1.jpeg ..

That map was in this scientific article …

Link: “Clinical Characteristics of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in China,” by Weii-jie Guan, Ph.D., Zheng-yi Ni, M.D., Yu Hu, M.D., et al., for the China Medical Treatment Expert Group for Covid-19, published on 28 February 2020 at NEJM.org …
N Engl J Med 2020; 382:1708-1720 … 30 April 2020 … DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa2002032 …  https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2002032 ..

WHAT ARE THE 2020 PREDICTED EXCESS DEATHS FROM COVID-19 AND OTHER CAUSES FOR CHINA?

I have not been able to find online the predicted excess deaths from COVID-19 and other causes for China (although I may have simply overlooked the statistical analyses). If the ratio of predicted deaths were the same as that for the United States, the predicted number of deaths might be figured thus …

United States population: 328,200,000
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Predicted Excess Deaths from COVID-19 and Other Causes in the United States for 2020 (1): 99,000 deaths

China population: 1,393,000,000

The ratio would be: x predicted China excess deaths / 1,393,000,000 China population = 99,000 predicted United States excess deaths / 328,200,000 United States population

x = 99,000 / 329,200,000 x 1,393,000,000 = 420,192 predicted excess deaths for China in 2020

It seems to me likely that a number of countries may be underreporting COVID-19 infections and deaths for lack of manpower or possibly also for political reasons.

COVID-19 Tidbits: ‘General Pandemonium’ Deaths for the United States? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 22 May 2020

  • PREDICTED ‘EXCESS DEATHS’ FOR THE UNITED STATES FOR 2020
  • PREDICTED ‘GENERAL PANDEMONIUM’ DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES FOR 2020

Dear Ones,

Here are a few COVID-19 tidbits regarding predicted excess deaths for 2020 in the United States …

PREDICTED ‘EXCESS DEATHS’ FOR THE UNITED STATES FOR 2020

Here is a graph with a pretty big CDC ‘excess deaths’ spike for the winter; the ‘excess deaths’ are the steep little mountain of data above the red line on the far right side of the bar graph …

Image: “Weekly number of deaths (from all causes) – as of 9 May 2020,” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) … https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm … public domain because from the United States Government

Image: “Weekly number of deaths (from all causes) – as of 9 May 2020,” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) … https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm … public domain because from the United States Government

CDC predicts the total excess deaths for 2020 to be in the range of 84,891 to 113,139 (with a pretty big fudge factor). Taking an average of the range, that would be a prediction of 99,000 excess deaths for 2020.

PREDICTED ‘GENERAL PANDEMONIUM’ DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES FOR 2020

But 32,300 or so of the predicted excess deaths do not have to do with COVID. Go figure.

Link: “As Pandemic Claims Non-COVID Patients, Some Face Difficult Decisions,” by Zoe Todd, 4 May 2020, from PBS Frontline … https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/article/excess-pandemic-deaths-cdc-covid-coronavirus/ ..

That would be 32,300 / 99,000  times 100 (to get the percent) = 33 percent ‘general pandemonium’ deaths, or one in three of the 2020 excess deaths being due to nothing the CDC can put a peg to, as I perceive it.

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

Angel of Death Has Left Los Angeles . a vision by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published by 15 May 2020
The event described happened on 29 March 2020

  • ALICE’S VISION: ANGEL OF DEATH HAS LEFT LOS ANGELES
  • FLIGHT PATH OF THE ANGEL OF DEATH
  • TIMELINE JUMPING OR SURFING: TIME SLIPPAGE IN VISIONS
  • DISJUNCT BETWEEN WHAT I SEE IN MY COMMUNITY AND THE COVID-19 ONLINE TALLIES
    • Waves of Fear Stirred Up by Mass Media
    • Blessings Are All Around Us

Dear Ones,

ALICE’S VISION: ANGEL OF DEATH HAS LEFT LOS ANGELES

On Monday, 29 March 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown (the Mayor’s stay at home order here in Los Angeles) I went to Office Depot in the San Fernando Valley in the late afternoon. I was standing in the parking lot, next to my car, observing the few people around me, so as to judge whether it would be safe to go into the store.

To my amazement, in my astral vision, I could see that the Angel of Death had passed by, and left this place. On the astral airs, I had a retrospective view of a dark form … not menacing, but neutral in aspect … a dignified, stern but comely being about 20 feet long, clothed in a black robe, flying off in the air at an altitude a little higher than the buildings there. Intuition whispered that this being compassionately dispensed what ill tidings he bore hither and yon, over the face of our beloved planet. The ‘feel’ of the vision was a little like this …

There were a few people in the parking lot; they looked healthy, and wore no face masks. In the store, the music was light and upbeat, and the young store clerks looked hopeful and healthy. From this I gathered that the worst was behind us.

FLIGHT PATH OF THE ANGEL OF DEATH

I wondered where that Angel of Death was headed next, so I checked the map about it. It looks like the Angel was heading off towards Antartica, with a flight trajectory passing a little east of New Zealand, through the Pacific Ocean …

TIMELINE JUMPING OR SURFING: TIME SLIPPAGE IN VISIONS

Over the years I have found that there is some ‘time slippage’ in visions; they may be a little before or after the rolling out of the hologram before my physical eyes. As well, I often find that there is ‘time slippage’ in the mass media. For instance, I had a prophetic vision to do with some cloud readings on 12 February 2020 …

Link: “Early February 2020: Omens in the Sky,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 12 February 2020; published on 1 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-hS7 ..

But it was not till 19 March 2020 that the governor of California issued the safer at home order.

Clearly, the vision I had of the Angel of Death passing by was also before the fact. The vision took place on 29 March 2020 and the tally of those passing on of COVID-19 in Los Angeles continues to be on the high side.

Sometimes they say that the perception of the mass media lags the unfolding epic of life on Earth. Of course, it takes some time after an event for it to be reported on the news … but the question is, how much time does it take? Is it a matter of hours, or days, or years? Could it be sometimes the one, and sometimes the other?

From the stance of multitemporality, on the other hand, could it be that the forward looking visions of a prophet have to do with timeline jumping or timeline surfing? That would be another way of looking at the fact that prophets speak about things that are about to unfold.

DISJUNCT BETWEEN WHAT I SEE IN MY COMMUNITY AND THE COVID-19 ONLINE TALLIES

The odd thing is, it seems as if what I see … my personal experience of life in my community … does not match what I see in the COVID-19 statistics.

Waves of Fear Stirred Up by Mass Media

To me there seems to be a big disjunct going on; it feels to me like the mass media are revving up people’s fears about getting ill and passing on. As an empath, I can feel waves of fear coursing through the noosphere at night, when people might be expected to watch the news channels.

Are Not Blessings All Around Us?

Is there reason to be fearful? Or are there blessings in store for us, here in California? Could it be that a great blessing is unfolding here on Earth, as the Incoming Light inspires us to new spiritual heights during Summer Solstice 2020?

I feel the answer is the latter. I find that, if I center my Awareness on my own two feet, on the patch of Earth on which I am standing, then look through my own eyes at the scene unfolding around me, then all is well. I find peace and tranquility everywhere. My world is full of blessings.

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

In the year 2015 I vacationed in Durango, Colorado. For some while I had had an uneasy feeling I was being stalked. In the years 2009 and on, as I grieved over my mother’s death, it had been a vague feeling, an occasional heads up, to be very aware of my surroundings and whether there might be dangers to avoid.

But that year in Durango, it became a clear and present concern. It became evident to me I was being hunted by a serial killer … or so it seemed to me at the time. Why I had been marked, and who the stalker was, remained a mystery. It could be there never is a rational reason for such a thing.

The events that unfolded for me in 2015 through 2017 were ably and uncannily portrayed the following year in the movie “Unsane,” which mirrored the stark terror and sense of remorseless pursuit I felt as the intended victim of a serial killer …

Video: “Unsane | Official Trailer #1 | 2018,” by 20th Century Studios UK, 29 January 2018 …  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyWnHdHrlrw ..

I guess it must have been that stalking by serial killers was ‘in the air’ during those years 2015 through 2017, and that the 2018 movie helped clear the astral airs and settle the Dark energy thread I had been sensing. Whatever the context, here is my tale of some of my ‘close encounters’ during those years …

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: SIGHTING AT NAVAJO STATE PARK IN COLORADO

I was at Navajo State Park southeast of Durango, Colorado, a place I often visited. I sighted a man who seemed to be wearing a beard he had fabricated of public hairs. When he drove into the parking lot of the less developed campground there, I felt a sense of mortal peril, and quickly took evasive action. Here is the spine-tingling tale …

Link: “Alice’s Perilous Tales: The Man With the Pubic Hair Beard,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 January 2019; revised on 11 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-bvu ..

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: SIGHTING IN GRANTS, NEW MEXICO

That was not the first time I had run into the man with the pubic hair beard. Prior to that I had spotted him in the parking lot of a Motel 6 in Grants, New Mexico.

He was sitting in one of two big, brightly colored road maintenance vehicles, each used to haul two backhoes maybe orange in color. He was wearing a fake, black, bushy goatee. It seemed to me that I recognized him from several other occasions; he seemed to be someone I had met, only wearing an improbable disguise and sitting in an equally improbable vehicle.

As I recall, that was on 18 June 2015; I was on my way to Espanola, New Mexico, for the summer solstice celebration there. I called right away and informed law enforcement in Grants about my concern, but by the time they got to the motel, the road equipment and the man with the fake black goatee were gone.

Why the people and equipment would have taken off in the late afternoon, I do not know. I usually do the opposite; I arrive at a motel in late afternoon with intent to spend the night. Mysterious stuff was going on.

I recall two other vehicles disappeared from the Motel 6 parking lot simultaneous with the road maintenance vehicles late that afternoon … one was a pickup truck holding a dune buggy. Another was a sedan with Los Angeles license plates that had been parked by a man or men renting the motel room just beneath that which I had priorly booked. The Los Angeles sedan was, as I recall, the only vehicle parked on that side of the building when I checked in. Could be it was a rental car; and most likely this was a just a coincidence …

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: THE ROCKING BUS WITH THE GIZMOS ON TOP

After the road maintenance vehicles had left the Motel 6 parking lot, a converted schoolbus pulled into their spot alongside the motel fence. I could see the vehicle from the window of the second-floor motel room to which I had changed. It was painted oddly … was it blue, or grey? … The windows were painted over too. On the roof of the bus were several disc-shaped gizmos about four feet in diameter.

Later in the evening I had the oddest feeling of inhospitable incoming energy waves. I wondered if the gizmos on the bus might be emiting short-wave energy? Why would that possibly be, I wondered?  Were they broadcasting something, maybe? Looking out the window of my room, I could see the schoolbus bouncing … bouncing?! … up and down. I thought I could hear the muffled voices of women chanting inside the bus. There was a thickish ‘shimmer’ of energy in the air above the bus. How surpassingly strange this was!

The next day I headed off to Espanola, New Mexico, intending to participate in the 3HO Summer Solstice event that takes place every year there. I recall I got to my location uneventfully. The parking lot is a high desert meadow; when I parked there I noticed the same bus with the inverted discs on top of it, parked in the lot.

That was a heads up for me, and a first in the many years I had been to the Summer Solstice event. It turned out to be a reasonable omen, as a Dark Attack unfolded in the next hour that made me forfeit my event fee in favor of timely escape to safety …

The incident I described in the blog section “A MAHABHARATA VISION AT SUMMER SOLSTICE 2015” may have had to do with the painted bus with gizmos on the roof. That explanation seems quite a reach to me, though. I prefer the notion of a solar event … maybe a strong solar wind, or an incoming coronal mass ejection … which has more of heaven than hell in the telling of it.

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: TWO OMINOUS ‘MOVIE CREW’ ENCOUNTERS

The mysterious events that unfolded in Grants, New Mexico, and Espanola, New Mexico, were not two of a kind, but rather two of a series of physical incidents that took place both before and after summer 2015.

Here, for instance, are two such perilous tales that took place in greater Los Angeles after the Grants and Espanola capers. The first took place in Fish Canyon Narrows near Santa Clarita, and the second in Malibu Creek State Park in the Santa Monica Mountains …

In both instances a group of automobiles full of people showed up just after I arrived at usually relatively deserted trailheads I planned to hike. These batches of automobiles somehow reminded me of movie crews, which are often seen filming here in Southern California.

In most cases, movie crews are accompanied by trailers for makeup or to provide food for the crews, but in these instance there were no trailers; thus I may have been mistaken in thinking the incidents had to do with the entertainment industry.

29-Flavor Barbecue? 

One instance of what might have been a movie actor run-in happened on 23 April 2016. It had to do with what seemed to be two rangers, or maybe forest workers, who parked off Templin Highway near Castaic, California, close to the Fish Canyon Narrows trailhead which leads to the abandoned Cienaga Campground. Here are photos of the men’s vehicles, and also of my white vehicle and a blue car that parked there …

Clagett, 23 April 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: These vehicles were parked where hikers park to hike the Fish Canyon Narrows trailhead, north of Castaic Lake, California.

DESCRIPTION: These vehicles were parked where hikers park to hike the Fish Canyon Narrows trailhead, north of Castaic Lake, California.

When I saw these two men I had an odd feeling, so I asked them if it was safe to hike the trail. They said that I would probably be safe, but that I ought to be careful. That was a partial ‘heads up’ for me. Here is a photo of the vehicle driven by one of the men with whom I talked ….

Image: “Sheriff’s Office Vehicle Parked Near the Intersection of Templin Highway and Los Angeles City Water and Power Road, Los Angeles County,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 April 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: As I recall, this was the vehicle driven by one of the men I talked with about whether nearby Fish Canyon Narrows trail was safe to hike.

DESCRIPTION: As I recall, this was the vehicle driven by one of the men I talked with about whether nearby Fish Canyon Narrows trail was safe to hike.

As I turned to hike down to the trailhead, maybe 10 cars packed with people went past me. I had never seen any traffic to speak of on that road, which is usually as deserted as it was in this photo taken that day …

Image: “Intersection of Templin Highway and Los Angeles City Water and Power Road, Los Angeles County,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 April 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: Foreground: Templin Highway. Far left: Locked gate that allows access to Fish Canyon Narrows trailhead, north of Castaic Lake, California, but prevents access by most vehicular traffic. To the left of the locked gate, and not visible in the photos, is the parking area for hikers. Top center: Los Angeles City Water and Power Road. This road goes down along the west side of Tailrace Canal and Elderberry Forebay, then east to the intersection of Goodell Fire Road. The latter runs along the east side of Tailrace Canal, Elderberry Forebay, and the northern portion of Castaic Lake.

The experience of many cars packed with people arriving just after I did somehow set me on guard. So I thought I would wait for awhile, and see ‘how the wind blew’.

As I waited, I had the strangest astral vision … like an omen … of a film crew in a wilderness setting, with actors, male and female, sitting around a lifeless female body, preparing for a cannibal act featuring 29 flavors of barbecue sauce.

Then I saw this damaged street sign by the road, which somehow seemed to reinforce the ‘ill wind’ I had sensed …

Image: “Damaged Road Sign by Templin Highway Near the Intersection of Templin Highway and Los Angeles City Water and Power Road, Los Angeles County,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 April 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: This road sign was by Templin Highway north of Castaic Lake, California. That was close to the Fish Canyon Narrows trailhead.

Yikes! Was I ever suddenly ‘on guard’.

After awhile, all the cars, still loaded with people, came back up the hill and went away. I know it was not much to go on … just a few odd details of that day … but these days I have become more observant of what might be termed signs and omens. So I gave up on that hike and went off to another trailhead.

The title of this poem I composed some years later had to do with the vision I had that day while playing the ‘waiting game’ at my parking place off Templin Highway …

Link: “Cannibal Song: The 29-Flavor Barbecue . aka Ogreish Stew,” a poem by Alice B. Clagett, written on 2 May 2019; published on 2 May 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cwW ..

The person described in the poem, however, was part of a different astral saga.

Franciscan Capuchin Friars or Actors?

Another instance took place on 12 June 2017 in one of the parking areas of Malibu Creek State Park in the Santa Monica Mountains. The lead-up to the event was like this …

Lead-Up to the Event. In the year 2016, I had been encountering people behaving strangely across the road from Malibu Creek State Park, on the grounds of King Gillette Ranch, Calabasas, California, which is the property of the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority.

The Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor Center, which is managed by the park services that have to do with the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, is located on the grounds of King Gillette Ranch.

Movie crews often film movies at both King Gillette Ranch and Malibu Creek State Park. It seemed possible to me that their presence at these two adjacent parks might have had something to do with what unfolded.

In 2016 I had encountered a chatty, somewhat overweight, middle-aged visitor to the Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor Center. He said he was a photographer and that he was well known to the people at King Gillette Ranch.

His feeling … his emotional affect … was ‘in front of him’; it seemed to me he was compelled to action, and that action might have been sexual in nature. Or so it seemed. That is to say, I got the intuitive ‘heads up’ about this person, who seemed to be following me up the hiking trail after I left the Visitor Center. When the man started to take a shortcut across a meadow to intersect me, I doubled back towards the maintenance station on the grounds.

Outside the maintenance station I encountered a man I presumed to be the ranger there; that man sternly told me that taking photos on the grounds was prohibited. It seemed to me he was defending the other man, who had tried to intersect me, and of whom I felt afraid. It seemed as if he was demanding I not take a photo of that man. Further, I had never heard about a rule that a person cannot take photographs on Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority parkland. Thus his behavior seemed eccentric to me … out of place, in a way.

Then when I got back to my car I saw a tall, spare, middle-aged man with a telephoto lens. He opened his car trunk, which was completely empty and spiffily clean, and put the camera in the trunk. Then he left.

I cannot quite put my finger on it, but I was spooked by the behavior of these three people. A few days later I went to Malibu Creek State Park, and spoke with the young man who staffed the entry kiosk about my concerns. That man said he thought it had to do with cocaine use at that time.

………………..
Sidebar: Just Say No! to Drug Use in Malibu Creek State Park and at King Gillette Ranch

As time went on, I contacted LAPD (the Los Angeles Police Department) about possible cocaine use at King Gillette Ranch and at Malibu Creek State Park. I remember talking to a male ranger behind the desk at C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor Center about my concern that cocaine not be used in Santa Monica Mountains parklands. I recall the ranger did not take it so well; he looked taken aback.

Nevertheless, I feel it is good to express our concern in this regard; I encourage all the Sierra Club members to do so. For instance, I have often see empty marijuana vials in the picnic areas near the Malibu Creek Rock Pools. If drinking alcohol in the parks is not allowed, then along that same line of thought, I feel it reasonable not to allow drug use, whether marijuana or cocaine or other recreational drugs. Some may disagree, but that is my stance on the issue.

We ought to keep our parks safe for our campers and hikers, and for family outings. I read there was a murder at the campground at Malibu Creek State Park on 22 June 2018, and that the campground has been closed since then. Were there no drug use on park lands, perhaps that and similar acts of violence might have been averted, I feel.

………………..

Sighting of a Movie Crew and Men Dressed as Friars. The main event along these lines took place on 12 June 2017 in Malibu Creek State Park in the Santa Monica Mountains.

I drove up to the entry kiosk of Malibu Creek State Park, intending to go for a hike. I was apprehensive (whether justifiably so or not) about movie crews and other folks possibly acting weirdly because they were on cocaine. I asked the ranger manning the kiosk whether any movie crews were filming there that day. The ranger said no, that the park was nearly deserted that day.

I paid my entrance fee and began to drive past the first parking lot. As I did so, a caravan of ten or more cars drove past the entry kiosk. As I had never encountered such a big caravan of cars there, I pulled over to see what might be up.

Most of the cars pulled into the first parking lot. I could see there were both men and women getting out of the cars. I saw several women who were middle-aged, but with very nice figures; I thought they might have been actors in their early years, and might now be working as film crew. I wondered if this might be a movie crew from across the road at King Gillette Ranch?

The front car from the caravan continued along the road towards the campground. I noticed with a chilling feeling the Caucasian man riding shotgun, whose long, lanky, sunburned forearm was resting on the sill of the open, passenger-side window of the car.

It reminded me of the forearm of a man on the passenger side of a silver Volvo, license plate #5LUF325, that loitered in front of my house while I was at a Joshua Tree concert on 9 September 2016. As I recall, the driver of the car that loitered near my house more than six feet tall and well-built; I could not see, though, what the man driving the car in Malibu Creek State Park looked like. Here are the photos of the loitering vehicle (Topanga LAPD were called about it back then) …

Image: “Silver Toyota Sedan – License Plate #5LUF325,” second photo taken on 9 September 2016 … CC??

Mulling over the caravan and the man’s arm, I went and parked in the second parking lot. There I encountered three men dressed as friars. This was so unusual, in my experience of hiking Malibu Creek, that I took a snapshot of them, then abandoned my idea of hiking and left the park with cautious haste …

Just after that, I photographed these men near the restroom in the lower parking lot for hikers. I searched online and found Capuchin Franciscan clothing for sale, so these may not have been bona fide monks, but only men dressed as monks.

Back home I hoped to solve the mystery of the friars at Malibu Creek State Park. Here is what I found out through an online search …

It appeared they were wearing Franciscan Capuchin Friar outfits. There is no such monastery nearby, so I wrote to the Franciscan Capuchin Friars near San Francisco, to find out whether they might identify my photo of the men I saw, but I never heard back from them about it.

I also checked into Franciscan Capuchin Friar outfits, and found they are for sale online; that would fit with the notion of actors, or a movie crew.

HYPOTHESIS OF THE FATAL DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS GAME

The odd events of 2015 to 2017 led me to the notion that I was being stalked by a cocaine addict. Who could this man be, I wondered? To what end, I asked myself?

These repetitive close encounters of a perilous nature led me to posit I might have been marked as the victim in a fatal Dungeons and Dragons Meetup Game originating in Los Angeles, possibly amongst male actors or men aspiring to be actors. I recall wondering if such a meetup might have been started by unemployed actors as an inexpensive way to produce Indie snuff films.

Tie-in to Dylan Redwine Murder Mystery

I began to wonder: Might the odd events I experienced have been related to the mysterious death of Dylan Redwine near Durango, Colorado? For more on this hypothesis, see …

Link: “Compendium: Dylan Redwine Murder Mystery – Child Torture for Snuff Film Industry?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 22 February 2020; revised on 23 April 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-gz4 ..

LOOKS LIKE MY STALKER HIGHTAILED IT!

I may never know whether my hypotheses of the Fatal Dungeons and Dragons Game and of Indie Snuff Film Capers were true, but I can say, with gratitude, that the feeling I was being stalked and that I was not safe in my own home came to a sudden end in December 2016, after my return to Los Angeles.

The occasion of this sudden change-up was the installation of a surveillance system in my home; from this I gathered that my stalker was a wanted man, who could not afford to have his face on camera.

In the ensuing two years, stalking issues in Los Angeles and while hiking became less and less of a concern. I feel this may have had to do with my no longer taking a cell phone with me when I went out. It is possible I was being tracked through some high-tech geolocation malware to do with my cell phone.

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

Take-Down of a Woman by a Felon . a partly astral story by Alice B. Clagett

Excerpted and adapted on 13 April 2020 from a blog written on 24 February 2018; published on 28 February 2018

  • INTRODUCTION: A STORY BY ALICE ABOUT SUMMER IN DURANGO
  • THEMES IN THE LIVES OF FELONS THAT DETER REHABILITATION
  • TAKE-DOWN OF A WOMAN BY A FELON: A MODUS OPERANDI
  • CONCLUSION REGARDING THE FELON TAKE-DOWN

Dear Ones,

Here is an astral story about a felon MO (modus operandi) to do with injury to women, that I heard during my 2015 summer stay in Durango …

INTRODUCTION: A STORY BY ALICE ABOUT SUMMER IN DURANGO

There is another type of Take-Down that has to do with felons, and the type of life that a felon leads, especially after having been in prison. I base the below on an astral story I heard over several months in 2015 while spending summer vacation in Durango, Colorado.

I recall going into one of two convenience stores near my summer rental one afternoon. There was a cashier behind the counter … a man I had seen there before. Another man walked into the store; he had on his ankle a house-arrest bracelet of the sort that is issued as an alternative to incarceration.

This was the first such I had seen, although I had read about them. As I approached the cash register with my ice cream. I heard the cashier ask the other man where he got his anklet, and for what crime. Then he indicated he had one too.

I was quite shocked. Could it be that there were so many felons in Durango that store owners had no choice but to hire cashiers who wore house-arrest bracelets? I began to feel that Durango must be full of felons, and that is when I started to dream about the below astral story.

At the time it seemed the story was targeting me personally. As nothing happened on the physical plane to prove or disprove the astral story, my guess is that I personalized a feeling I encountered in the ‘astral airs’ of the Wild West, and that some other hapless woman … maybe in Durango, maybe elsewhere … must have been the intended target.

Here is the leadup to the story …

THEMES IN THE LIVES OF FELONS THAT DETER REHABILITATION

Oft-times, I feel, because of the rough things that happen in prison, a felon who comes out of prison will have a tendency towards sex work to make a few extra dollars … maybe to buy some drugs, or for whatever reason. So there are these two themes in the lives of felons: sex work and drug use.

On the clair plane, I also see these themes in the lives of felons: Quite frequently. M2M,  because most felons are men, and in prison, lots of times, rape must be going on. And so a habit of M2M, or a breakdown of a preference for the M2F types of relationships might occur.

What that leads to is misogyny … hatred of women. It surely cannot be that this is always the case. But in a felon  who is torqued to the Dark in other ways, I feel that it sometimes happens.

On getting out of prison, that person might be looking for women, to take their money and kill them. He might feel angry at the world. And men might be perceived as too powerful to act towards in anger; so women might be the target of that anger.

TAKE-DOWN OF A WOMAN BY A FELON: A MODUS OPERANDI

Perhaps when felons leave prison there is a psychological evaluation. The ‘psych eval’ indicates that something maladaptive is going on with the felon; and an attempt is being made to reintegrate them into the mainstream.

Thus on leaving prison, I hypothesize, the felon might have in hand a ‘psych eval’ of himself. He might take umbrage at this evaluation; even bitterly despise it as the thinking of a ‘normal’ person who is just not with it, a person who does not know how to work the system in the manner the felon adeptly does. That might be the felon’s line of thinking.

Thus when the felon targets a woman that he wants to take down … Say, to murder, and steal money from … he might assemble false evidence purporting that his own prison-release psychological evaluation is in fact that of the targeted woman. (In the case of my Durango astral story, that woman, it seemed, was me.)

In psychological terms, this maneuver is called ‘projection’, but in law-and-order terms, it is fraud. Along the same lines, the felon who is setting up a woman for the fall might purport that the woman herself is a sex worker with a drug habit; he may project the qualities of his own life onto her.

If this ploy works, this is a Take-Down, both physical and financial. The whole life of the woman is taken away. The identity is removed. Bad reputation is substituted for a good reputation. And of course, the property of the murdered woman is also stolen.

CONCLUSION REGARDING THE FELON TAKE-DOWN

So that is a form of Take-Down by the Dark. It is difficult because a person who wants to live a saintly life, and upon whom all kinds of aspersions are cast … who is held in the light of calumny and slander … needs to have a very strong faith and footing and belief in God, and hope, and charity towards fellow man, in order not to lose the Light of God within their own body of Light when they suspect they may be so targeted.

I can say from personal experience of the astral burden, that it is a difficult test. It is rather like Christ’s test, you know? Christ made it through his doubts in the Garden of Gethsemane, and to full faith in God, but not without having a doubt or two. I had my doubts as well.

Thank God the astral rumors never solidified into physical fact. I returned to Los Angeles shaken, but unscathed. That is better than what happened to Christ, for sure. Thank goodness he underwent that test for all our sakes.

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

Dear Ones,

This is being written at what is currently thought to be the day before the peak of the Coronavirus epidemic in Los Angeles (although we are not certain whether there may be another wave later on).

WHY THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?

The question is: Why the coronavirus pandemic? I have three possible answers …

Did Our Martian Bacterial Colonists Bioengineer COVID-19 to Counter the Threat of HIV / AIDS?

It could be that the Martian bacterial colonists of our colon came up with the virus as a way to address the threat that the HIV / AIDS virus poses to the viability of humankind …

Link: “Did Martian Bacteria Bioengineer All Life on Earth (Including Us)?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 3 December 2016; revised on 9 July 2017 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-6uD ..

Link: “On Asking Our Martian Bacterial Colonists to Help Heal Disease,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 25 January 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8gZ ..

Might COVID-19 Strengthen Our Immune Systems Against an As-Yet-Unknown Health Threat? 

It may also be that God provided this virus to build up our immune systems against another health threat not yet known to us on this timeline.

Might COVID-19 Be a Download of Light to Heal the Damage Done by Cosmic Rays to Our DNA During the Recent Extended Solar Minimum?

This is the explanation that makes the most sense to me, as it is the most positive: I feel that the symptoms labeled COVID-19 are, in actuality, downloads of Light to do with the initiation of Solar Cycle 25 in December 2019?

Link: “Solar Cycle 25,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle_25 ..

Earth’s atmosphere in the past few years has been chock full of cosmic rays because of the ever-decreasing solar activity since early 2014. That is nearly 6 years of greater and greater impact of cosmic rays on our DNA …

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Number Progression,” by NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_cycle_24_sunspot_number_progression_and_prediction.gif … public domain

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Number Progression,” by NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_cycle_24_sunspot_number_progression_and_prediction.gif … public domain

Cosmic rays can randomly alter our DNA, and not always for the better. Right now, at the cusp of the change from Solar Cycle 24 to the new Solar Cycle 25, our Ascension Teams may see the need for extensive repairs to our human DNA. In addition, new DNA is being activated because of the faster pulsating Light available in this new cycle of the Ascension process.

It seems to me that the health effects we are experiencing have to do with repairs and upgrades of our DNA as the new Solar Cycle begins. If we accept these downloads of Light in a positive way, with feelings of faith and hope in the future, then we will be able to go through the changeups with grace and ease. Along those lines, I heard just the other day that positive emotions help bolster the immune system …

Video: “DR BRUCE LIPTON – CORONAVIRUS, EPIGENETICS & IMMUNE SYSTEM – MOST DANGEROUS PART OF COVID-19 IS FEAR,” by London Real, 10 April 2020 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=242&v=nkQqxkf6heA&feature=emb_logo ..

I realize my understanding of COVID-19 flies in the face of accepted health understanding, but after all, is that not what Lightworkers do? We see Light where others may see Dark. We see God’s great Will at work in creation, where others may see our human limitations. We see the smiling face of humankind, where others may see masked automatons.

This is a time of New Beginning, and not the advent of Apocalypse. The coronavirus pandemic has taught people all over Earth the importance of community, of family, of working at home with our young children, the importance of healthy diet and of outdoor exercise, the saving grace of faith in God, the helpfulness of yoga and meditation, the unhealthful aspects of life in very large cities. Who would have thought such changes in human values might take place in such a short time?

Change can be fearful, or we can rise to the challenge. Because of the pandemic, we have a chance to take a good look at the values dear to us, at the lifestyle we choose to live, so that we may walk together into a New Tomorrow.

TURMERIC TO PURIFY THE BLOOD?

I wonder if the foods said in India to purify the blood might be helpful in getting through COVID-19? In India, turmeric is used in cooking quite a bit; they feel it cleanses the blood. Does the COVID-19 virus float around in the blood? If so, maybe turmeric would help get rid of it? I note there is quite a bit of turmeric in mustard, for instance.

I looked this up today in the book ..

Citation: “Foods for Health and Healing: Remedies and Recipes,” based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, edited by Gurubanda Singh Khalsa and Parmatma Singh Khalsa for the Kundalini Research Institute,, published by Spiritual Community and K.R.I. Publications, 1983 … See: “Chapter 10: Body Systems and Their Ailments,” the subsection: The Blood

I see there were quite a few more recommended blood purifiers there, including baked apple and cottage cheese, which sounds pretty tasty to me.

I remember this book fondly because I was Editorial Assistant for it, under my then spiritual name Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa. I still keep a copy handy on my cookbook shelf in the kitchen.

THREE-MINUTE MEDITATION TO ACHIEVE A COMPLETELY TRANQUIL MIND

I also thought of this meditation, because I, as well as many of my fellow empaths, are very sensitive to the waves of fear that have, in recent weeks, swept across Earth during the COVID-19 pandemic …

Link: “Meditation to Tranquilize the Mind,” originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on 28 February 1979, at Healthy, Happy Holy Organization … https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/health-and-healing/meditation-tranquilize-mind ..

This is one of the most effective meditations I know of to tranquilize the mind. I used it while teaching beginner kundalini yoga classes many years ago. Nearly instant peace of mind, wow!

MEDITATION CRISIS KIT: FREE DOWNLOAD

I have one other gift for you to reduce stress during the current crisis. This is the meditation “Crisis Kit” put out by Kundalini Research Institute. Here is the free download …

Link: “Kundalini Research Institute Crisis Kit,” copyright The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan … http://kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/docs/KRI-Crisis-Kit.pdf ..

I am familiar with all the meditations in the “Crisis Kit,” having practiced them myself and taught them to my kundalini yoga students in the 1980s. It is my hope you may find amongst them some that will be as helpful to you as I have found them to be.

CONCLUSION

Dear Ones, take heart during these times. I wish each of you good health and happiness, and the courage to face the stress of life with equanimity.

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

Guidelines for Community Preparation for the HIV Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here are guidelines for community preparation for the HIV / AIDS pandemic …

Through schools, churches, social clubs such as Rotary and Lions Club, and in our immediate families, let us talk together about the current situation, and devise good strategies to meet the needs of our communities.

Let us make home means of testing for HIV readily available across demographics. I note that HIV tests are available in drugs stores such as Rite Aid for about $40.00. I suggest this alternative because of the social stigma connected with the HIV and AIDS ‘labels’.

It seems likely that statistics for women and children are greatly underestimated, as these groups until now have been considered as not being at risk. As this pandemic has begun to accelerate, such assumptions are not tenable. Women and children ought also be advised of risk, of testing procedures, and of treatment methods and prognoses, both traditional and alternative.

It seems likely, as the epidemic progresses, that traditional medical facilities will be overstretched. Let us look into the existence of and efficacy of alternative medical techniques such as homeopathy, healing tinctures and crystals, and energy rebalancing techniques, as well as alternative ways to bolster the immune system, such as healing foods and yoga.

Let us look to our schools and churches as possible places where care may be provided if hospitals should be overstretched. Making plans for such an eventuality, even though it most likely will not occur, will ease the minds of everyone in our communities, I feel.

With a better understanding of the course of epidemics (see “More Information” below) it becomes clear that the survival of human beings with resistance to the infecting agent is the key to the survival of the human race. Thus it becomes important to keep our HIV-infected populace … including HIV-infected newborns … alive and well cared for. Among them will be the resistant strain of humankind that lives on into the future and preserves our species, as was the case with the deadly influenza epidemic of the early 1900s.

Let us look with an open heart to everyone whose immune system has been weakened by the HIV virus. Let us understand that this is no longer a disease affecting only men who have intercourse with men, or people who use intravenous recreational drugs. Straight families will be equally affected … men, women and children across the board, all over America. Let us lift the HIV social stigma, so that we can talk with each other about the times of tribulation we are now facing.

Let us stand with Christ in these times. Let us look to the work of feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, visiting those in prison, and burying the dead. (1)

Let us stand as people of faith, hand in hand with the people of all faiths. Let us do what we can for all peoples everywhere, as this is a time of tribulation that crosses all borders and affects all nations, all races, and all cultures. Let us stand together, with and for each other, in the highest love and Light. Let us persevere through faith, in compassionate love, and in hope of a better tomorrow for all humankind.

In love, light and joy,

Dear Ones,

CALMING EFFECT OF THIRD-EYE POINT MEDITATION

The third-eye point, the sixth chakra, is where many meditators place their Awareness during  meditation. Placing Awareness on the third-eye point can create waves of peace, love, and joy that emanate through our person, and send rays of healing Light out into our community. But what is the most effective way to do a third-eye point meditation?

LOCATION OF THE THIRD-EYE POINT

Some mistakenly feel that the third-eye point is on the forehead. This is a mistake that may have been occasioned by misinterpretations of illustrations of the location of the chakras in years past.

The true location of the third-eye point, and the place where Awareness had best be placed during a third-eye point meditation, is on the pituitary gland in the center of the brain.

THE PITUITARY GLAND IS PART OF THE LIMBIC SYSTEM

Here is the difficulty: The pituitary is a small part of the limbic system …

Image: “File” 1611 The Limbic Lobe.jpg,” Illustration from Anatomy & Physiology, Connexions Web site. http://cnx.org/content/col11496/1.6/, Jun 19, 2013, by OpenStax College, 23 May 2013, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1511_The_Limbic_Lobe.jpg … This file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license. Adapted by Alice B. Clagett … COMMENT: In the image, the colored portions of the brain represent the limbic lobe. The asterisk indicates the pituitary gland, where awareness is placed during a third-eye point meditation.

Adapted by Alice B. Clagett …

COMMENT: In the image, the colored portions of the brain represent the limbic lobe. The asterisk indicates the pituitary gland, where awareness is placed during a third-eye point meditation.

The limbic system is involved in what, in the triune brain theory, is termed the reptilian brain. That would be the primitive part of the brain responsible for fight or flight during survival, territorial aggression, and sexual aggression in the animal realm …

Link: “Limbic System,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbic_system ..

Inadvertent Stimulation of the Fight or Flight Response

Thus if we concentrate our Awareness on the wrong portion of the central brain while meditating, we will experience thoughts of violence and fear, rather than peace, joy, and love. We will experience Darkness rather than Light.

The Mistake of Cursing of the Pituitary Gland as the ‘Evil Eye’

Similarly, if the third-eye of a meditator is cursed as being the ‘evil eye’ by a group of spiritual adepts, or assailed through black magic by a Satan cult, the result may be a dislocation of the Awareness of the meditator from the pituitary gland to the limbic system, with consequent emotions of fear or rage.

ON INVOKING GOD’S BLESSING BEFORE DOING A THIRD-EYE POINT MEDITATION

To mitigate undesirable outcomes during a third-eye point meditation I suggest the following: When we begin a third-eye point meditation, let us invoke God’s blessing.

One of my favorite invocations is that which I learned through Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3H0) … Link: “Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO)” … https://www.3ho.org/ ..

That is the Adi Mantra, which I repeat three times. The words are: Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo …

Link: “Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo,” by Sikh Dharma, 25 November 2016 … https://www.sikhdharma.org/the-adi-mantra/ ..

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC STRESS AND THIRD-EYE POINT ‘WANDER’

In recent days, especially in the afternoons and evenings,  I have experienced movement of my Awareness from the pituitary gland to the limbic system.

Moving Awareness to the Neocortex to Correct Third-Eye Point ‘Wander’

Last night, to mitigate this, I tried changing my Awareness from a point at the center of my brain to the Neocortex, which is located at the top and top sides of the brain and extends into the brain about two inches deep …

Image: Neocortex … https://i0.wp.com/human-memory.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/neocortex-image.png?resize=768%2C606&ssl=1 ..

That worked for me, as a technique to eliminate attraction of reptilian thought forms from others apparently caused by placing my Awareness, in error, on my own limbic system by mistake, thus unintentionally creating a resonance between the emotions of my limbic system and those of emanating from the limbic systems of nearby people.

VIOLENT STRESS RESPONSES OF OTHERS TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

Waves of Fear Sweeping Round the Planet Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic

During these months of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are viewing news reports that damage the emotions that emanate from their limbic systems. For instance, many feel fearful. Consequently, waves of fear are sweeping round the planet right now; these are especially felt by empaths, intuitives, and long-time meditators. We must overcome these thoughts of fear, so that we will not attract the fearful thought forms of others.

Acting Out of Limbic System Resonance Responses by Our Family and Neighbors During This Time of Stress

It is not just violent thought forms that are attracted to us by inadvertently placing our Awareness on the limbic system. If we, as meditators, continue to fall into fear, then we run the risk of attracting violent ‘acting out’ by others, through resonance of our limbic system thought forms with their own.

Right now Angelenos must, because of the Los Angeles mayor’s order to stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, remain in their own homes. Therefore the greatest risk of acting out by others right now has to do with family, whose presence we cannot escape in our own homes, and nearby neighbors.

For instance, if we experience emotions of fear and also of sexual arousal, we may find a person living nearby and following us around physically with thoughts of sexual or territorial aggression, which is to say, thoughts of rape, home invasion, or murder.

If we go to a grocery store during the pandemic, we may find staid-seeming people unexpectedly yelling at us in the supermarket line; the topic may be whether we ought wear a face mask, for instance.

We may find that law enforcement stationed at the supermarket doors prevents our entry into the market, while letting someone we, as empaths, know to be infected with the virus enter the store.

In the same way, at an office supply store, we may find the clerk fearful of ourselves, though we be healthy and wearing a face mask, and then standing too close to another customer not wearing a face mask but silently ill (as the empath may discern to be the case based on the other person’s dimmed bodily vigor).

We may find that in posting pandemic advisories for our neighbors on NextDoor … https://nextdoor.com/ … we are attacked, or our posts banned from the site, though our facts be valid.

In other words, in this time of great stress for many, we are very likely to encounter unforeseeable acts of violence, whether through verbal assault or physical assault.

Unavailability of LAPD Response to Domestic Violence, Most Likely Due to Health Crisis

Because of the ‘Safer at Home’ mayoral order in Los Angeles, assault by a person in or near our home cannot be ruled out. Yet my local branch of the Los Angeles Police Department, most likely understaffed because of illness right now, has announced it will not be responding to calls regarding domestic violence right now.

Those of us Angelenos for whom that is true are left to fend for ourselves in regard to assault by family and neighbors; and the possibility of assault is high right now because of the stress everyone is feeling. We must, in all urgency, formulate a means of dealing with this likely danger.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER AND MEDITATION AT THIS TIME

After hours of urgent pondering, occasioned by incidents such as those described above, what I came to is this: It is very important to pray and to meditate right now, and I emphasize, to do first the one and then the other. The prayers we utter before meditation direct the Awareness to the pituitary rather than to the limbic system. It is prayer that keeps us safe through these troubled times.

I would like to close with an endorsement of this point of view by the Queen of England herself, who stated in the below video the importance of prayer and meditation during the COVID-19 crisis. It is clear to me from her manner and her words how well balanced her own attitude is towards the trouble we face in this time of crisis …

COVID: The Worst May Be Over in the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 April 2020; updated on 17 June 2020

[This post predicted a peak in hospital admissions for the United States on 7 April 2020, and a peak in deaths about a week later, on 14 April 2020.

Viewing the New York Times graph “New reported deaths by day in the United States” as of 17 June 2020, I see that deaths peaked three days after my predicted date, on 17 April 2020 –from Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by the Los Angeles Times Staff, in the Los Angeles Times, updated frequently … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html .. ]

Dear Ones,

There is a chance COVID hospital admissions may peak today for the United States on average.

According to this map, admissions already have peaked in Vermont, New York, Michigan, Louisiana, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, and  will peak this week for a number of other states …

Link: “How Are States Across the U.S. Projected to ‘Flatten the Curve’?” by Elijah Wolfson and Sanya Mansoor, 3 April 2020 … https://time.com/5815136/how-long-to-flatten-curve-us-states/ ..

It looks to me, from this article …

Link: “Clinical course and risk factors for mortality of adult inpatients with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China: a retrospective cohort study,” by Fei Zhou, MD, Ting Yu, MD, Ronghui Du, MD, et al, published 11 March 2020, The Lancet, Volume 395, Issue 10229, pp 1054-1062, 28 March 2020, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(20)30566-3https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30566-3/fulltext … See: Figure 1. Clinical courses of major symptoms and outcomes and duration of viral shedding from illness onset in patients hospitalised with COVID-19

… that for the portion of COVID patients admitted to a hospital and who do not survive, the median time till death may be about a week later; so we might anticipate a peak in COVID deaths one week later than the hospital admission peaks in the first reference above.

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

Dear Ones,

I did some research today on the cause of the configuration of the current COVID-19 infection map in the United States …

COVID-19 INFECTION MAP FOR THE UNITED STATES AS OF 25 MARCH 2020

Link: “Where COVID-19 Has Been Confirmed in the U.S. | Statista,” as of 25 March 2020, Sources: Johns Hopkins University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) … https://www.statista.com/chart/20978/coronavirus-cases-us-map/ … Creative Commons

Link: “Where COVID-19 Has Been Confirmed in the U.S. | Statista,” as of 25 March 2020, Sources: Johns Hopkins University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) … https://www.statista.com/chart/20978/coronavirus-cases-us-map/ … Creative Commons

As can be seen from the above map, some of the most affected states are New York, New Jersey, California, Washington State, Michigan, Illinois, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Georgia. Colorado, and Texas.

Least affected as of 25 March 2020 were the uppermost two tiers of states that were not near the Pacific Ocean or the Great Lakes.

USE OF ALCOHOL AND OF PRESCRIPTION AND NONPRESCRIPTION DRUGS MAY WEAKEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCREASING THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

I see by my research today that the use of alcohol or opioids (including heroin, cocaine, and prescription morphine) can weaken the immune system, increasing the severity of the effect of COVID-19 infection.

From the map, I see that most of the United States is involved in drug use, the least affected states being North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Texas.

DESCRIPTION: Dark red represents the highest drug overdose death rate.

Importance of Strengthening the Immune System

I have read that the COVID-19 statistics from China show 81 percent of those who are infected are asymptomatic [which I feel may mean not that they are asymptomatic, but rather that they do not present with symptoms that indicate the need for intubation]

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Epidemiology, Virology, and Prevention,” by Kenneth McIntosh, MD; Martin S. Hirsch, MD; and Allyson Bloom, MD, updated 12 June 2020 … https://www.uptodate.com/contents/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19?source=history_widget ..

I feel that lack of symptoms must have to do with the strength of the immune system; so whatever we can do to make our immune systems stronger, as the wave or waves of COVID-19 sweep through our particular state, would be very helpful.

For instance, I find that drinking filtered water with buffered vitamin C mixed into it every other day is very helpful in bolstering my immune system when I feel a cold coming on; this might be helpful for early symptoms of COVID-19 as well.

I also saw somewhere online that consumption of vitamin D might be helpful; and just in the general course of preventive health care, taking a daily vitamin and mineral supplement is recommended by many Western medical doctors.

In the case of people whose lifestyle includes the use of recreational drugs, the good news is that withdrawing from use of these drugs prior to the onset of symptoms might improve the chances of having only a mild response to COVID-19 infection.

INFECTION WITH HIV / AIDS MAY WEAKEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCREASING THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

As well, I have read that autoimmune diseases such as HIV / AIDS can weaken the immune system, increasing the severity of the effect of COVID-19 infection.

You can see the low arc of the infection swinging round the southern edges of the United States, and also that New York State is involved in the epidemic.

Image: “Rates of HIV Diagnosis in the United States, 2017,” by United States Centers for Disease Control, 1 February 2019, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hiv-us-map-2017.png … public domain … DESCRIPTION: Dark blue represents the highest HIV rate.

Image: “Rates of HIV Diagnosis in the United States, 2017,” by United States Centers for Disease Control, 1 February 2019, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hiv-us-map-2017.png … public domain …

DESCRIPTION: Dark blue represents the highest HIV rate.

There is no cure for HIV infection, but symptoms of AIDS can be treated. The present moment may not be the right time for that though. If you are infected with HIV, then you might want to ask your doctor about whether you ought to wait on treatment until the COVID-19 infection builds up and then subsides in the state in which you live (much as I hope will be the case for New York State soon).

Los Angeles COVID-19 Peak Predicted for 9-12 Days From Now

Along those lines, I read that Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti predicts that Angelenos may see a great surge in COVID-19 infections (concomitant to the surge currently being experienced in New York)  six to 12 days from now [that would be 31 March 2020 to 6 April 2020]

Link: “As deaths rise in L.A. County, officials issue new quarantine order,” by Sarah Parvini, Rong-Gong Lin II, Taryn Luna, and Colleen Shalby, 25 March 2020, in the Los Angeles Times … https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-03-25/coronavirus-california-peak-deaths ..

How Mayor Garcetti’s Prediction re Rise in California COVID-19 Cases Has Fared

On 15 June 2020, I viewed a graph of “New Reported Deaths by Day in California,” in Link: “California Coronavirus Map and Case Count” by New York Times Staff, updated 15 June 2020, in New York Times … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/california-coronavirus-cases.html ..

I see on the smoothed graph that California deaths did indeed start rising sharply on 31 March 2020, as predicted by Mayor Garcetti. The numbers continued to increase until 23 April 2020.

As of that date, graph smoothing shows a double peak of deaths on 23 April 2020 and 27-28 April 2020. Since then there has been a very gradual decline in daily numbers of deaths.

POSSIBLE FACTORS: HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS, CANADIAN CITIES NEAR NORTHERN UNITED STATES BORDER, AND MERCHANT MARINE

On studying the drug death and the HIV / AIDS infection maps above, I found these to a reasonable degree correspond to the lower arc of the above U.S. map of COVID-19 infection.

Thoughts on High-Rises and the COVID-19 Infection in New York State

I have a few thoughts about how New York has taken the fore in terms of COVID-19 infections. I wonder if it might have to do with many people living in high-rise buildings that share common HVAC … so that infected air might be circulating throughout a building?

As you may know, I mentioned the HVAC in high-rises as a possible source of COVID-19 infection in an earlier blog …

Link: “COVID-19 and Central HVAC,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 17 March 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-gZ4 ..

Thoughts on Possible Involvement of Canadian Cities Such as Toronto and Vancouver

As far as infection of Washington State and of the Great Lakes states is concerned, I wondered if trade with the Canadian cities of Vancouver and Toronto might have been a factor in their infection with COVID-19. I see no substantiation of this from the Canadian government, but it is possible there has not been as much testing for COVID-19 there, or that statistics have not yet been tabulated in that regard.

Thoughts on Possible Involvement of the Merchant Marine in Infection of United States International Ports

The involvement of the Great Lakes states in early COVID-19 infection surprised me; it made me wonder whether the merchant marine might be bringing COVID-19 from foreign ports into United States ports. The effect of the merchant marine might have had to do with the early COVID-19 infection of Washington State, California, and New York State as well.

. . . . .

Those are my thoughts for now on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Blessings of perfect health and happiness to everyone! Stay well!

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

Look Out for Stray Dogs in COVID Cities? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 24 March 2020; updated on 15 June 2020

Dear Ones,

I was out briefly in the San Fernando Valley this morning, and I intuitively picked up on a ‘sign’ or portent: I saw two dogs walking without an owner down the sidewalk, near Topanga Canyon Blvd. As this is a rare sight in Los Angeles, I got to thinking we ought to look out for stray dogs in the cities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, that would be cities in New York, New Jersey, California, and Washington State …

Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by Mitch Smith, Karen Yourish, Sarah Almukhtar, Keith Collins, Danielle Ivory, Allison McCann, Jin Wu and Amy Harmon, updated 24 march 2020 1:54 P.M. E.T., in The New York Times … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html … COMMENT: May require a ‘sign up’ to log onto this article.

I was out briefly in the San Fernando Valley this morning, and I intuitively picked up on a possible danger that might be coming up: I saw two dogs walking without an owner down the sidewalk near Topanga Canyon Blvd on Erwin Street. As this is a rare sight in Los Angeles, I got to thinking I ought to look out for stray dogs when I am in the Los Angeles communities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It seems to me possible there might later on be people at home and too sick to care for their pets because of the coronavirus. It is possible we will see roving, hungry pets on the sidewalks and streets, looking for food to scavenge.

I have two thoughts on this: First, I thought I would carry a sealed-up bag of dog kibble with me when out and about, as an offering of a little kibble might buy some time for a strategic retreat to one’s car or to within a building. Cat kibble might do, in a pinch.

Then I thought I would find out the phone number of the local animal rescue agency, write down a description of the dogs and the intersection, and call their personnel to ask for a rescue.

As rescue staff may be short in the coming weeks, I think the main thing may be to be aware of this novel, possible danger … the possibility of stray animals hungry and looking for food, possibly not acting normally, and to get to a safe place if they are sighted.

It is possible the coronavirus is transferable to pets, whether dogs or cats: I do not think that is known right now. If pets could get the virus, then I guess they might transmit it to a person. For that reason I advise against doing a good deed and taking a stray pet home, for now.

Years ago I remember seeing dogs that were once domestice and had since gone wild, running together in packs, and hunting in the canyons of San Diego. It is possible that very hungry dogs, especially if running in a pack, might attack a person, especially a child, and or maybe an adult, if at night; I thought I would stay clear of stray dogs during the next few weeks for that reason.

I know that currently, here in Los Angeles, the chance of danger from released or escaped pets is minimal. This is just a thought for the future.

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

Dear Ones,

AN EQUINOCTIAL LIGHTWORKER PROPHECY: DNA UPGRADE THROUGH THE INCOMING LIGHT

Here are photos taken at my house in the San Fernando Valley yesterday. These show the post-Equinoctial Incoming Light. Some are saying that humankind is dealing with a coronavirus pandemic right now; as a Lightworker, I interpret this quite differently.

I see a massive upgrade to the DNA template of humankind taking place before our eyes, and the Incoming Light that effects this change is streaming down everywhere …

COVID-19 and Central HVAC . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 March 2020

Dear Ones,

Here is a hunch for the wary: I advise staying away from buildings with central HVAC, such as highrise apartment buildings and office buildings during the coronavirus pandemic, if possible. My feeling is that the coronavirus germs might be carried through the HVAC from apartment to apartment or from office to office.

That might increase the ‘viral load’ of COVID virus encounters with which a person there might have to contend, making it harder for their immune system to fight off COVID-19.  The greater the ‘viral load’, I theorize, the more likely a person will experience the more serious COVID-19 symptoms.

I wonder if it would be safe for a person to turn off HVAC vents in their high rise apartment or office during the height of the pandemic? If not, then might wearing masks and gloves in highrise buildings with central HVAC be helpful?

In homes with central HVAC, the same might apply. If, for example, one family member falls ill. That person might stay in a room with the HVAC vents shut off, and with maybe a floor heater for heat instead. For families, I wonder if it might be safer to turn off the central HVAC and rely on floor heaters until the pandemic has passed through their community?

Perhaps others will know better than I whether these hunches are important to our safety, and if so, how important they may be?

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

Predicted Coronavirus Death Toll for California . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 March 2020; updated on 15 June 2020

Dear Ones,

As you may know, the Chinese province of Hubei, which was the first part of the world to suffer the COVID-19 pandemic, has a population of 58.5 million people. Of those infected, the death toll according to the World Health Organization is 3,085 people.

There are about 39.6 million people in California. All things being equal (which may be far from the case) we might expect a coronavirus death toll in California of 2,088 people. [According to the Los Angeles Times (1) there have been 5,082 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in California as of 15 June 2020, so my estimate was too low.]

That is calculated thus: 3,085 Hubei province deaths, divided by 58.5M Hubei population, multiplied by 39.6M California population = 2,088 predicted State of California deaths.

As a percentage of the State of California population, that would be a mortality rate of 0.005 percent of the population; which is to say, a mortality rate of about five people in 10,000. [According to the New York Times (2), as of 15 June 2020, the COVID-19 mortality rate in California was 13 per 100,000, so my estimate was low.]

While far from ideal, those are pretty good odds of survival, I feel, provided we follow the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention coronavirus guidelines  …

A Hunch About the Coronavirus . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 12 March 2020

  • CORONAVIRUS MAY BE WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT UNDERDIAGNOSED BECAUSE OF TEST SHORTAGE
  • THERE MAY ALREADY HAVE BEEN SEVERAL THOUSAND COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES
  • STAY SIX FEET FROM COUGHING OR SNEEZING PEOPLE
  • COVID-19 PANDEMIC MIGHT LAST TWO YEARS AND INVOLVE A DEADLIER ‘SECOND WAVE’

Dear Ones,

I have been monitoring the daily situation reports on the Coronavirus by the World Health Organization …

Link: “Coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) situation reports,” by World Health Organization (WHO)  … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

CORONAVIRUS MAY BE WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT UNDERDIAGNOSED BECAUSE OF TEST SHORTAGE

My hunch is that the severe shortage of COVID-19 tests available in the United States are skewing the data. I see from a Google search that the CDC predicts about 12,000 Americans will die from the flu each year.

THERE MAY ALREADY HAVE BEEN SEVERAL THOUSAND COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES

Then there is this headline …

Link: “Trump ‘shocked’ by deadliness of flu — it’s killed at least 16,000 Americans this season,” by Meera Jagannathan, 28 February 2020 … https://www.marketwatch.com/story/as-the-world-focuses-on-coronavirus-dont-forget-about-the-deadly-flu-2020-02-06 ..

It seems likely to me that some of the extra 4,000 deaths over and above the 12,000 annually predicted might be misdiagnosed COVID-19 cases. In other words, it is possible that the Coronavirus is well established in the United States, but currently underdiagnosed.

STAY SIX FEET FROM COUGHING OR SNEEZING PEOPLE

I also note as well that the World Health Organization recommends keeping 3 feet away from coughing or sneezing people …

Link: “Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) advice for the public,” by World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public ..

… but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends keeping a distance of 6 feet away …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): How to Protect Yourself and Others,” by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) … https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html ..

COVID-19 PANDEMIC MIGHT LAST TWO YEARS AND INVOLVE A DEADLIER ‘SECOND WAVE’

Based on what happened during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic, it is possible the COVID-19 pandemic might last two years and involve a deadlier ‘second wave’ of illnesses. That earlier pandemic infected about 27 percent of people in the world at that time. About 3 to 5 percent of the world population at that time died of influenza …

Link: “Spanish Flu,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu ..

This sort of outcome would be on the severe end of possible outcomes for the Coronavirus pandemic. Yet it does point out the importance of storing as much in the way of basic food and water supplies as possible, in case the COVID-19 pandemic should be more severe than anticipated, and should there be foodstuffs shortages.

One does what one may in such instances, taking a middle path of preparation between the extremes, quite naturally dependent on financial means at hand.

I myself have a more optimistic notion of the likely course of the pandemic. If there is a second wave of illness in Hubei in the first half of 2020, then I will revise my ideas about it.

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

P.S.: It could be that test shortages and difficulties with reporting health data in cities of China other than Hubei may be causing skewed Coronavirus statistics there as well. For instance, I see in the WHO daily situation reports that statistics on confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths in the last 24 hours are missing for many cities in China.

Coronavirus: Urgent Plea to U.S. Mayors and Governors to Establish Stores of Staples in Case of Shortage . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 March 2020; updated on 8 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I was in my local Walmart a few days ago and noticed they were short of staples such as rice and dry noodles, and out of bags of beans. I feel each family must buy what staples we can, as soon as we are able, given what is available in the stores. I feel we might wish to store up enough for 3-4 months for our family, in case stores run short of supplies.

Bottled water is also important to have on hand; second best would be water filters such as Brita or the like. I also suggest water disinfectant in whatever form can be purchased, in the unlikely case urban water supplies should be compromised.

I ask that United States mayors and governors purchase for their towns and states a supply of staples … grains such as wheat, corn, millet, oats, beans, and rice … and also powdered milk for mothers with young children … to provide in case of urgent need should a food shortage develop for the next three of four months.

Maybe our mayors and governors can obtain bulk staples through farmers’ cooperatives in their own states. if not there, it maybe that farmers’ cooperatives in the Midwestern United States will have available the needed staples (at granaries, for instance).

I wonder if Red Cross … phone 800-733-2767 … or the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust … phone 202-720-4221 … might offer foodstuffs for short-term food crises due to coronavirus here in America?

Link: “Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust,” by United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service … https://www.fas.usda.gov/programs/bill-emerson-humanitarian-trust … COMMENT: I note this Trust is in cash rather than commodities, and aimed at famine relief in non-United States countries.

If bulk staples can be obtained by government officials, that will help stave off famine in the communities they serve.

There is a possibility of lockdowns on public transportation as cities begin to experience the Coronavirus epidemic; this must be taken into consideration when planning for distribution of bulk staples to the underserved in our local communities. In other words, families who have no other means of picking up government foodstuffs than public transportation might be left to die at home.

I am sorry to be so specific in this regard, but I feel many people are unused to thinking in survival terms, and unable to visualize what may transpire if our mayors and governors are unable to provide for the needs of the underserved in case of famine.

As well, our local government staffs … the folks who would work on food distribution programs … might be depleted, and the government offices themselves might be shut down as the coronavirus passes through the various United States communities.

Thus I feel the time to act, with foresight, is now. That time is upon us.

Coronavirus in the United States: Stay Home If Possible Now? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I have read that the incubation period for the Coronavirus is unknown, but might be from 2 to 14 days. I also read that it is possible some, even many, people are getting a very mild illness rather than grave symptoms.

Two days ago I was in Walmart and saw there a young child quite sick with a cough, walking and crying alongside his mother. Then today I saw a young woman who had a cough.

It is not known one way or the other, but I presume it is possible that some of those with mild coughs in Washington State, California, and New York right now, among others, might have very mild cases of Coronavirus that are ‘flying beneath the radar’ …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Cases in the U.S.,” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), updated often … https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-in-us.html … See the subheading: Cases and Deaths by County

If so, then others may be exposed to the virus, which might take several weeks to incubate. That would mean people might be working or going to school or doing sports as usual, not knowing they might have and might possibly transmit the virus to others.

I feel that now is the time for those who are able … such as retired people and moms with young children in the most affected parts of the United States … to go ahead and stay at home, keeping to themselves insofar as possible.

That is just my feeling on it. I wish each of you and your families and friends the best of health during this difficult time.

God’s blessing be with you and with those who are dear to you.

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

How Much Food and Water Should We Buy to Wait Out the Coronavirus? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I took a look at the World Health Organization daily situation reports for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) today …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” bky World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I see there is a decline in confirmed cases of the virus in the day prior to 2 March 2020 for Hubei, China. According to WHO, the virus broke out there on 31 December 2020. We have 42 WHO reports from 20 January 2020 through 2 March 2020.

Thus we have 20 unreported days and 42 days reported on by WHO, since the outbreak in Hubei. That is a total of 62 days.

If the decline in confirmed cases in Hubei continues in the days to come, then the people of that city will have seen the worst of the outbreak last week. Should this be so, then we can anticipate the epidemic will tail off in Hubei over an equal period of time, which is to say, an additional 62 days.

Thus, in this reasonable scenario, the outbreak will have lasted 4 months in Hubei. Taking that as a touchstone for the duration of the epidemic in other countries, I suggest that we lay in a 4-month supply of food and water supplies (or means of disinfecting water, in case the local water supply might be compromised).

That will allow us to avoid interacting with restaurant and supermarket personnel and customers who might be infected. As well, it will suffice in case food supplies become scarce (as have face masks globally).

Food needs can be supplied at reasonable cost through purchasing big sacks of rice and of beans, which I feel ought to be kept from rodents by being placed in durable plastic storage bins.

The food can be purchased at Walmart or Smart and Final Iris. It is difficult to find durable plastic storage bins that fasten securely enough to deter rodents; Walmart or Target might have these. Of course, sturdier storage, such as metal containers with metal lids, would be better, but these may be available only in rural areas.

For more on the topic of survival see …

P.S. It might be good, as well, to purchase a supply of vitamin C, which might help bolster the immune system. My preference is buffered vitamin C powder, which I find to be more agreeable to my gastrointestinal tract. If that is not available (as with the face masks) then whatever may be had must suffice.

CDC Guidelines for COVID-19 . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 25 February 2020
Previously titled: CDC Guidelines for Coronavirus

Dear Ones,

I was wondering whether it would be good to stock up on disposable face masks and gloves because of the Coronavirus. I heard from a person in a food store that face masks with filters can be purchased from Home Depot; he says he likes his. I thought he might be referring to something like the M 8511 respirator with a filter.

From prior research I did on face masks to wear to prevent smoke inhalation during forest fires, I thought maybe disposable face masks specifying ‘NIOSH approved: N95’ might be good.

The bottom line, though, is that I was unable to find these available in a timely fashion and/or way too expensive. Even the three-fold medical face masks with the ear loops were unavailable.

For face masks, all I could do was get some of what Amazon.com did offer, and that must needs do. What I ended up with was a box of non-NIOSH approved, non-N95 disposable dust masks.

On the other hand, it was easy to purchase available vinyl, latex-free disposable gloves.

Here is useful Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance regarding preventing the spread of the Coronavirus …

  • WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS
  • NEW YORK TIMES CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS COMPARED TO THOSE OF WHO
  • LOS ANGELES TIMES CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS FOR CALIFORNIA

Dear Ones,

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS

I have found a World Health Organization (WHO) web page with daily situation reports on the coronavirus (COVID-2019) …

Link: “Coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) situation reports,” by World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

NEW YORK TIMES CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS COMPARED TO THOSE OF WHO

On 6 March 2020 I checked the New York Times statistics (you have to create an account, either free or paid, in order to view the article) on Coronavirus cases within the United States …

Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by Sarah Almukhtar, Aliza Aufrichtig, Matthew Bloch, et al., updated daily

As of that date, he New York Times indicated 227 people with the coronavirus have been treated in the United States. Twenty-one states were involved, and 14 patients had died. It averred that infection was being spread within the United States, and not just through travel to other countries.

The WHO statistics for 5 March 2020 were less timely, but supportive of the New York Times report. As of 5 March 2020, WHO confirmed 129 cases in the United States (of these 21 were new cases as of 5 March 2020); and nine total deaths as of 5 March 2020 (three of which occurred on 5 March 2020). This statistical source also indicated local transmission within the United States was then occurring.

Alice’s Perilous Tales: Energetic Barrier Separating Positive from Negative Dimensions . by Alice B. Clagett *

  • ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: ANOTHER ENERGY BARRIER EXPERIENCE
  • THE HUGE ENERGY BARRIERS I TERM ‘CITY DOMES’

Dear Ones,

There is an effect that takes place similar to that of people in Placemarker timelines failing to recognize family, friends, and acquaintances in the latters’ Awareness timelines. This effect, however, has to do with multidimensionality rather than multitemporality. It goes like this …

A Lightworker has strong positive energy of love; that is to say, fourth dimensional positive, the energy of the heart chakra when it exhibits unconditional love. A Darkworker, on the other hand, has strong negative energy of hatred; that is to say, fourth dimensional negative, the energy of the heart chakra when it exhibits unconditional hatred.

In the Lightworker’s Awareness timeline, when he or she meets a Darkworker also in their Awareness timeline, the dimensional disparity creates a barrier made of 1- or 2-foot-thick ‘air’, solid as ice, between the Lightworker’s physical body and the physical body of the Darkworker.

So the Lightworker will see the Darkworker, and vice versa, but the energetic barrier between them will prevent their interaction. I myself, as a Lightworker, experience a feeling of deep foreboding when such ‘brushes with the Dark’ occur.

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: THE ZEBRA-STRIP SPANDEX TRANSGENDER WOMAN IN STILETTO HEELS

I recall one such instance that occurred on 29 May 2016, or thereabouts, on the physical plane. I was one of the co-chairs of a Rumi poetry meetup that used to get together on the beautiful grounds of a retreat center in the San Fernando Valley, California. These grounds are run by the Catholic Sisters of Social Service as an interfaith retreat center.

On that fateful day in May 2016, I was heading towards the usual shady spot where our small group would meet, from time to time, outdoors near the chapel. I saw, heading towards the side door of the main building, a man who looked a little like well known movie star Tom Cruise who, I have read, attended a Catholic seminary for a while, then became a member of the Church of Scientology …

Link: “14 Celebrities Who Almost Became Priests or Nuns,” by Ranker …   https://www.ranker.com/list/15-celebrities-who-almost-became-priests-or-nuns/celebrity-lists .. 

Whether it was he or not, I do not know; it was only a brief glimpse, and the man’s back was nearly turned to me as he hastily walked away. For no reason I could peg to, I had a sense of foreboding.

Then I saw, sitting in the seat I usually sat in, at the little outdoor table where we used to meet, what appeared to be a tall, statuesque, improbably buxom transgender woman in a spandex outfit with wide, diagonal zebra stripes … black and white … and wearing stiletto high heels. Sitting beside her was a short, relatively unattractive but pleasant looking older woman, whom I took possibly to be her chaperone.

In the several years I had co-led the Rumi meetup on those grounds, I had occasionally found folks sitting at the spot where our small group usually met. However, I had never seen a person like this there before … or seen such a person anywhere at all, when it came right down to it.

Without knowing why, I had the most unusual sense of mortal peril. I felt that my life was on the line at that moment, and any false move might result in my death. Odd, is it not?

The tall woman  got up from her chair and headed leisurely towards me. She was walking in a way they used to call ‘sashay’ back home. She ‘sashayed’ in my direction. Her older companion followed behind her.

It was then that I experienced a big wall of energy between the tall woman and me. The wall of energy was several feet thick. Maybe it was this wall of energy that prevented the woman from speaking to me, or maybe she did not see me at all.

My own experience of the energy barrier was one of being protected from great evil. That is not to say that transgender women are evil … quite the contrary. It is just that Spirit guided me to steer clear of this particular person on that day.

To this day I am haunted by that unaccountable run-in. The shock of it propelled me to resign from my position as one of the organizers of the Rumi meetup.

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: ANOTHER ENERGY BARRIER EXPERIENCE

Another instance of an energy barrier apparently created by a positive versus negative dimensional disparity is described here …

Link: “Alice’s Perilous Tales: The Man with the Trembling Pinkie,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 23 May 2019; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cRe ..

In that instance my visualization of the energetic barrier that surrounded me was that of descent of a protective angelic force. This etching by Gustave Dore reminds me very much of the angelic energy that protected me from the ‘Balaam’ who stood before me …

Image: “An Angel Appears to Balaam (Num 23:15-35, by Gustave Dore, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:043.An_Angel_Appears_to_Balaam.jpg … public domain

Image: “An Angel Appears to Balaam (Num 23:15-35, by Gustave Dore, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:043.An_Angel_Appears_to_Balaam.jpg … public domain

I felt as if I were standing behind my guardian angel, and the angel was protecting me from the man with the trembling pinkie.

From my childhood Bible studies, I guessed that man might be riding a contrary ‘ass’ or donkey,which I interpreted as the ‘desire elemental’ mentioned in School of Theosophy books.

I thought the man with the trembling pinkie might have qualities of character that caused my guardian angel to protect me from him. That was my guess, based on religious studies in my childhood.

THE HUGE ENERGY BARRIERS I TERM ‘CITY DOMES’

It seems to me likely that the huge energy barriers I term ‘city domes’ might provide a clue to the nature of my own energy barrier experiences. For more on city domes, see …

What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 6 December 2019
Prior title: What If the United States Became Less Federal and More Regional in Government? 

Dear Ones,

ECONOMIC STRESSORS THAT MAY LEAD TO DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT          top

I have some thoughts on the state of the nation. Intuitively, I sense economic stressors that may gradually lead to our Federal government taking a lesser role in the governance of the United States, compared to regional alliances of states. I see the Federal government continuing to provide military defense, social security payments, and leadership in foreign affairs. I also see states taking more initiative in economics for their regions.

As to trade, I see future reliance on established railroad routes and water routes such as the Mississippi river. I anticipate that, should there be a gradual lessening of Federal power, then there might be more trade within an economic region, and less trade globally and nationally.

As to finance, I see potential reliance on barter, with care no to place our financial assets in overseas locations. Local-employment based credit unions may come into favor as regional savings repositories.

There may be more reliance on those economic sectors that hold strong during recessions … such as locally grown food, locally obtainable building materials, and water supplies not piped in over long distances.

As to economic stressors, I suggest the overarching stressor of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic impact of the HIV pandemic, and stress of regional aridity due to long-distance water transport costs,

A socially disruptive stressor is handheld psychosis, which may lead to chaotic events such as mass murders and actions by public utilities and military regarding perceived dangers that do not truly exist. This might precipitate social unrest in regions of the United States pinpointed by the Jade Helm exercises.

CAVEATS REGARDING POSSIBLE LOCI OF SOCIAL UNREST          top

In United States cities, the high cost of housing and the increasing phenomenon of homelessness may lead to social unrest and attempted land grabs through anarchist behavior; this is something for which, I feel, every large city mayor and every state government ought to have on hand emergency action plans. For states in arid regions, emergency anti-anarchist plans ought, I feel, to highlight security of water transport systems. Electrical grids, I feel, might also be an anarchist target.

We people in large United States cities can be of big help in creating peaceful environments for our children by offering our law enforcement departments volunteer help through neighborhood watch programs.

ON MAINTAINING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IN THE FACE OF CHANGE          top

It seems unlikely to me that anything would happen in a moment; rather I feel that the United States might very slowly tend towards a model of government more akin to the state by state model of our early years as a nation. We may find, in future, that traveling from one state to the next is a refreshingly new experience. Not everyone may be watching the same thing on television every night anymore; there may be less airline flights from here to there; and so the natural flavor and local color of each region of the United States may become more striking to the casual tourist.

In addition, it may be that some regions of the United States may be more perilous for tourist travel, as was the case for travelers in the early years of our nation.

I realize the prospect of change can be unsettling. It is good to keep in mind that changes such as those spoken of above … if, indeed, change there be … would in all likelihood take place by slow stages, over the course of the next century or two. Thus I feel certain there would be plenty of time to make our plans and find our footing in the new.

POSSIBLE FUTURE UNITED STATES ECONOMIC REGIONS AND TRADE REGIONS          top

Below are some maps I have adapted to show possible United States economic regions and trade regions of centuries to come. I would be interested on your comments regarding this intriguing topic of the eventual possibility that the United States government might become less centralized, and more imbued with local flavor and with the strong spirit of our local communities.
