Dear Ones,

SAFE SURGERY: RISK OF GLOVE PERFORATION DURING SURGERY

A while ago I did a blog on the effectiveness of surgical gloving in preventing blood taint during surgeries …

Link: “Compendium: Surgical Risk, HIV / AIDS, Hepatitis, and Hard Drugs,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 17 October 2016; updated on 6 July 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6gY ..

Here is the paper that was reviewed in the blog …

Link: “Occult Glove Perforation during Ophthalmic Surgery,” by Leonard Apt, MD, and (by invitation) Kevin M. Miller, MD, Tr. Am. Ophth. Soc., Vol. LXXXX, 1992 … http://europepmc.org/backend/ptpmcrender.fcgi?accid=PMC1298427&blobtype=pdf ..

In the paper, if I understand it correctly, Drs. Apt and Miller found a 15.0% incidence of surgically induced glove perforations over seven months.

In other words, if there is a 15% chance that a doctor’s surgical gloves might be perforated in 7 months, then there is a 15% chance of blood tainting during a medical procedure that involves exposure to a patient’s blood while it is in his or her body. According to the laws of probability, as I understand it, that would be a 15% chance of virus transmission with each surgery.

Self-Assessment and Segregation of HIV-Infected Surgeons to HIV-Infected Patient Groups

From this I deduced the possible danger to doctors of their being infected with HIV or hepatitis while they were wearing surgical gloves while doing operations. This then, might be a source point for HIV / AIDS ‘blooms’ as the pandemic progresses, unless the medical self-assesses and limits surgeries by infected surgeons to infected patient groups.

SAFE INCARCERATION: MITIGATING HIV / AIDS ‘BLOOMS’ IN PENAL INSTITUTIONS

As an aside, I feel that the incidence of HIV / AIDS ‘blooms’ in penal institutions … correctional facilities or prison … might be mitigated in a similar manner; that is, if correctional institutions self-assess and limit policing by infected correctional officers to infected groups of prisoners. The possibility of a correctional facility HIV / AIDS ‘bloom’ has to do with the practice of rape in these facilities, whether among prisoners, or by correctional facility officers. Prison rape is a practice just now beginning to be brought to light and figured into the pandemic equation.

COMPARISON OF SURGICAL GLOVE PERFORATION STATISTICS TO STATISTICS ON CONDOM BREAKAGE

To return to the article by Drs. Apt and Miller: That article got me thinking about how that finding might apply to the wearing of condoms during sexual intercourse. I think that there’s some congruence there.

Other factors being equal, might it be that wearing a condom during the act of sex might incur a 15% chance of HIV, hepatitis, or other virus transmission with every act of sexual intercourse? I’ve read an article by Planned Parenthood that supports this …

Link: “What are the chances of getting pregnant with a condom?,” by Emily@Planned Parenthood, 18 December 2017 … https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/teens/ask-experts/what-are-the-chances-of-getting-pregnant-with-a-condom ..

According to the article, among heterosexual couples where the man uses a condom during sexual intercourse, 18 in 100 of the women will become pregnant each year.

Among heterosexual couples where the woman uses a female condom, 21 in 100 women yearly will become pregnant.

Thus there is an 18% or 21% ‘ineffectiveness’ rate through condom use amongst heterosexual couples yearly. This figure is reasonably close to the 15% ‘ineffectiveness’ factor found by Drs. Apt and Miller for surgical glove protection.

Thus, we might extrapolate that a 15% to 21% annual effectiveness rate for prevention of STD virus transmission might be attained by using condoms, whether M2F, M2M, or F2F.

In other words, 15% to 21% of people using condoms for ‘safe sex’ might be anticipated to contract HIV or hepatitis annually, if their partner is infected.

RISK MITIGATION THROUGH DOUBLE BAGGING

Glove Perforation Risk Mitigation by Double Bagging During Surgery

The study by Drs. Apt and Miller discussed at some length the advantages of wearing two pairs of surgical gloves during surgery … of ‘double gloving’. Their retroactive findings were interesting, but inconclusive. One of the factors that needed to be looked at in future studies was correlation of location of punctures in inner and outer gloves worn during surgery. Were these to correlate … in other words, in cases of perforation of both gloves at one location … then, most likely, the risk of viral transmission, in cases where either the surgeon or the patient is infected, would be greater.

Then, in surgical cases, much might depend on the type of surgery being performed. For instance, hip arthroplasties … that is, total hip replacement surgeries … there is rough work involved. These surgeries must be done by physically strong surgeons. Manipulation of the joints may, I feel, result in greater likelihood of glove puncture. That is just my thought on it, without my doing any research on it. So it seemed to me that studies ought to be planned regarding correlation of location of punctures in inner and outer gloves worn during these types of surgery.

Risk Mitigation by Double Bagging Condoms During Sexual Intercourse

Wikipedia states that ‘double bagging’ … using two condoms instead of one … offers greater protection …

“‘Double bagging’, using two condoms at once, is often believed to cause a higher rate of failure due to the friction of rubber on rubber. This claim is not supported by research. The limited studies that have been done found that the simultaneous use of multiple condoms decreases the risk of condom breakage.” –from Link: “Condom,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condom … CC BY-SA 3.0

Planned Parenthood has more to say on this …

Link: “Fact Sheet: The Truth about Condoms,” by Planned Parenthood, July 2011 …  https://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/9313/9611/6384/truth_about_condoms.pdf ..

Under the subheading “Double Bagging,” they mention that three studies indicate double bagging … wearing two condoms … is effective in decreasing the risk of condoms breaking. One of the studies stated that double bagging decreased the risk of HIV transmission from 1.8% to only 0.2%. The study in question was …

Citation: “Multiple Condom Use and Decreased Condom Breakage and Shippage in Thailand,” by Rugpao, Sugwal, et al., February 1997, in Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
and Human Retrovirology,14(2), 169–173.

That would mean that single bagging results in a 98.2% effectiveness (that is 100% less 1.8%), and that double bagging results in 99.8% effectiveness (that is, 100% less 0.2%), as to the risks of condom breakage during sexual intercourse.

What do these percentages mean, in terms of the probability of HIV transmission? If the risk of condom breakage decreases from 1.8% to 0.2% with double bagging, then the risk, with double bagging, is only 10% as great as with single bagging.

Planned Parenthood translates 98% effectiveness as meaning, in a practical context, that 18% of heterosexual women using condoms will become pregnant each year. Were this risk to be 10% as great, then, presumably, only 2 women in 100 would become pregnant annually.

This pregnancy rate presumably correlates to condom breakage or slippage; thus the statistics might also apply to transmission of HIV and hepatitis. What we have then, is a potentially very significant mitigation of the rate of transmission of HIV and hepatitis through double bagging during sexual intercourse.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SLOWING DOWN THE COURSE OF A PANDEMIC

Slowing down the course of the HIV pandemic is important, both in terms of mitigation of human suffering, and also in terms of stabilization of the work force, and of available manpower, so as to keep our economy as strong and healthy as that of other nations, all of which are being impacted by the HIV / AIDS pandemic.

Uninfected Children Can Help Strengthen the Workforce of the Next Five Decades

The more we are able to slow down the course of the pandemic, worldwide, the greater will be the numbers of uninfected children born to the upcoming generation. These children, along with people now adults and uninfected, will strengthen our workforce during the next five decades.

Are HIV-Positive Newborns Who Are Resistant to HIV Being Born Worldwide?

Slowing down the course of the pandemic will also allow the human gene pool a ‘leg up’ in the natural course of selecting for a population that is resistant to HIV. More and more babies are being born already infected with HIV. The scant literature on mortality rates leans toward these babies not surviving to adulthood; but the truth is, data on this topic are woefully inadequate, as yet.

For instance, it is possible that babies are being born in the world today, who have the HIV infection. But because they appear to be perfectly normal, no one knows that they carry HIV. This might be the case, for instance, in Africa, where health care resources are less available.

Insurance Availability of Voluntary Annual HIV Testing in the United States

It might also be the case here in the United States, where annual HIV testing … though paid for by Medicare and other government programs … is seldom taken advantage of. This is most likely due, I feel, to backwardness of physician guidelines regarding the HIV pandemic. That would be easy to fix, though, by updating physicians on the advisability of annual HIV testing, and of testing newborns for HIV.

Nurturing HIV-Positive Newborns Who Are Resistant to HIV Will Strengthen Our Gene Pool

Thus it is possible that children are being born, here in the United States, and also worldwide, who are resistant to the HIV virus; who are able to lead healthy lives, and to bear healthy children. On this very likely possibility, it would be wholly inadvisable to react to the birth of HIV-positive children in our hospitals, with a policy of euthanasia. This type of policy would place our nation at a disadvantage, as regards other nations, in birthing a generation of children who have HIV, but are naturally resistant to the virus.

Putting the breaks on the rate of the pandemic … through double bagging, through voluntary annual testing and voluntary testing of newborns, and also through education on the risks and rewards of various sexual lifestyle choices … will allow the United States time and resources to nurture HIV-positive newborns, rather than making the short-sighted choice to euthanize them as a cost-saving measure.

These will be children who will be able to bear viable children, despite the infection, in years to come. Thus, slowing down the course of the pandemic will allow our human gene pool a ‘leg up’ in the natural course of selecting for a population that is resistant to HIV.

ATTENUATION: THE NORMAL COURSE OF A PANDEMIC

Mortality Rate During the 1918 Flu Pandemic, Compared to the 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic

We can expect that the HIV of future generations will be much different from the HIV of today. Such was the case with the influenza epidemic of the early 1900s … In the 1900s, the flu was very deadly, striking down one in every 10 to 20 people …

“The global mortality rate from the 1918/1919 pandemic is not known, but an estimated 10% to 20% of those who were infected died. With about a third of the world population infected, this case-fatality ratio means 3% to 6% of the entire global population died.” –from Link: “1918 Flu Pandemic,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1918_flu_pandemic … CC BY 3.0

Yet today, many people successfully survive infection with influenza. For instance, in the 2009-2010 Swine flu … H1N1 … pandemic, 1 in 5 people were infected, but the mortality rate was only 0.2% …

Link: “Swine flu infected 1 in 5, death rate low, study shows,” by Kate Kelland, 25 January 2013 … https://www.reuters.com/article/us-flu-h1n1-pandemic/swine-flu-infected-1-in-5-death-rate-low-study-shows-idUSBRE90O0T720130125 ..

Pandemics: A More Benign Infecting Agent Over Time? Or a Stronger Human Gene Pool?

As I understand it, this is the normal progress of a pandemic: Those who are genetically most susceptible to the infecting agent are likely to pass on, in either the first or the second generation of the pandemic. Others, with genes more capable of withstanding the impact of the infecting agent, survive. The result, over time, is a gene pool more capable of resisting the impact of the infecting agent.

From our human standpoint, over time, it appears that the infecting agent has become more benign. But in fact, it is our human gene pool that has become more viable.

This is the normal course of pandemics in human populations. Were we to look at the course of pandemics in domestic animal populations, we would most likely find correlation.

Call to Action: Can Viruses Be Cured with Perfect Pitch? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 3 April 2018

Dear Ones,

As you may know, with mini-clairaudient skills we can tune in to the speech of microbes. I do not do that often, but a month or so ago I was listening to the voice of … could you believe it? … a virus. And it sounded ‘stickery’ or ‘scratchy’ and off-key.

Would anyone be willing to test and find out whether perfect pitch audio bytes can cure viruses (or, as we Ascensioneers say, ‘transform them to the Light’) ? I noticed these perfect pitch videos on youtube (no doubt there are others) …

Link: Perfect Pitch videos by the youtube channel “Music in Space”  … https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHhMu16bh8b35Rr31ByfHFQ/videos?shelf_id=3&view=0&sort=p ..

If I had a cold, for instance, I might search around for one of these that suddenly and inexplicably relieved my cold symptoms, then play it for a while … Just a wild guess here …

Or maybe the Solfeggio frequencies might transform a virus to the Light? Here is one video clip that might be good for a test run?  (There are quite a few more on youtube) …

Other possible viral infections to test: flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, hepatitis, measles, rubella, chickenpox, rabies, herpes, HPV (the cause of warts), HIV (AIDS), and so on …

Dear Ones,

I have been looking into hepatitis and HIV, which I feel are currently under-tested and underdiagnosed, both among our transient community and among our community at large, including newborns, preschoolers, and elementary school children.

HEALTH INSURANCE: HEPATITIS AND HIV

It looks like Medicare and Medicaid may or may not cover the needed tests and treatments, depending on what coverages you have, and what state you live in.

It looks like undocumented immigrants aren’t covered …  See https://www.medicaid.gov/medicaid/outreach-and-enrollment/downloads/overview-of-eligibility-for-non-citizens-in-medicaid-and-chip.pdf   …

Insurance Testing Costs

I recently had an annual blood test done, and it came back from the testing laboratory (which is the major supplier of test results in the Los Angeles area) with a $980 price tag, apparently because it had not passed through my typical health insurance hurtles. Surely we must find a more reasonably priced source of laboratory testing than this.

There was also an unexpected, but much more reasonable, charge from my doctor’s office for treatment.

Henceforth I will ask about the cost before getting tests or treatments at a doctor’s office, so as not to be taken by surprise after the fact.

HEPATITIS

Vaccines

It looks like hepatitis A and B vaccines are available, and recommended.

I read that there is no vaccine for hepatitis C, but testing is recommended for people born between 1945 and 1965, and there is a treatment. See http://www.immunize.org/catg.d/p4075.pdf

Testing

Blood tests are available.

Treatments

For hepatitis A, treatment consists of bed rest, abstinence from alcohol, and medications for symptomatic relief.

Drugs are used to treat hepatitis B and C. If there is liver failure, then liver transplants are suggested, so I expect early detection and treatment might be important.

HIV / AIDS

Vaccines

Apparently, currently no vaccine has been proven effective against HIV: See Link: “HIV Vaccine” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIV_vaccine ..

Testing 

It looks like annual tests for HIV are recommended. It may be difficult to convince your doctor’s office to test you for HIV, if they feel you are not at high risk, according to the criteria provided to them.

I recently had the experience of summoning up the courage to ask my doctor’s office to test me for HIV; then the doctor’s office said they had done so. I later called, and the office said I had negative test results … meaning I had not been exposed to HIV.

Then I got the test results from the lab, sent to me as a separate bill by mistake, and it looked like I had not been tested for HIV after all.

Then I called the doctor’s office, and they reversed their position; the new answer was that I had not been tested after all.

My thought on this is that doctors may be dealing with the social stigma of HIV / AIDS testing, just as are the rest of us. In this case, it could be that my doctor decided I didn’t need the test, and that a little white lie would suffice.

California Laws about Doctors Reporting HIV Incidence and AIDS Patients’ Names

I’ve read, in a 2003 document, that California doctors were being required to report positive HIV diagnoses to the California Department of Health (but not the name of the positive person). I also read that, at that time, doctors with patients diagnosed with AIDS were required to report their patients’ names to the California Department of Health. (1)

I feel this law about reporting a patient’s name to the California Department of Health had to do with social stigma about AIDS being a disease of M2M men, intravenous drug users, and sex workers. That incidence among youth and women is low, may have to do with their being overlooked in testing because of risk factor indicators. The military may also be more at risk than it was previously thought to be.

That social attitudes towards this illness are becoming more understanding is evidenced by a new California law to go into effect 1 January 2018, reducing the offense of a HIV-positive person having sex with someone without telling them from a felony to a misdemeanor.

If the name reporting law is still true, it may be one reason why doctors are slow to test for HIV or AIDS at their patients’ request.

Home Testing

If testing is not covered by your insurance, or if you aren’t able to convince your doctor to test you, then reasonably priced test kits may be bought at Rite Aid or CVS.

The saliva test, I’ve read, is only 90% effective, and one must wait a month after possible exposure before testing. However, if you pay for it in cash, out of concern for the social stigma of so much as taking such a test, and if you pick a pharmacy far from your home, or get someone else to purchase it for you, then you may be at less risk of exposure to social stigma through loss of anonymity.

The blood test is more expensive and said to be more accurate; it must be sent off to a lab for the results, and so, unless you send the test under someone else’s name to the lab, there woiuld be greater risk of loss of anonymity.

Treatments

For those diagnosed with HIV, I have read that ongoing traditional medical treatments, even while asymptomatic, increases life expectancy. (2)  The difficulty is, these treatments may or may not be covered by your health insurance.

Prognosis for Infants and Young Children. Further, the prognosis for infants and young children who contract HIV apparently is less optimistic than that for adults who contract it. Despite this, I feel that we must do all that we can to preserve the good health of our children who have had the misfortune of being exposed to the HIV virus.

Importance of Keeping Young Children Alive, in Case Some Have Genes That Are More Immune

I’ve read that, here and there in the world recently, there have been suggestions, or even policies, of euthanizing AIDS babies. This type of policy must surely be based on the short-term goal of cost cutting, more than on the welfare of these children, who, I feel, deserve to live out their lives, no matter how short. That human life is very precious is one of my core beliefs.

On Development of Disease Resistance in a Population During the Course of a Pandemic.

From the standpoint of humankind as a whole, and looking to our future: There are bound to be some AIDS babies who are immune, as with any pandemic, and these children will be our hope for the future, if they are not euthanized, but instead provided with the best possible health care. (3)

During the influenza epidemic of the early 1900s, for instance, many Americans of all ages died of the flu, but those who survived had greater immunity. Thus today, very few people, except for the very young and the very old, are likely to die of the flu.

In the same way, in future days, we will no doubt be a nation with far greater immunity to hepatitis A, B, and C, and to HIV / AIDS.

Suggestion to Establish AIDS Babies Foster Care Programs

Sometimes moms of AIDS babies are unable or unwilling to care for them. In that case, I wonder if maybe a few children could be placed with foster parents … maybe even HIV positive foster parents? … who might receive a financial supplement for their care.

If there are states or counties that are unable or unwilling to set up foster care programs for these children, then I wonder if other states or counties might be willing to undertake their care. Perhaps a non-profit such as the Red Cross might be willing to set up such an interstate care program, for these very vulnerable children?

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

Hepatitis and HIV / AIDS Stigma: Shaking Off Fears and Planning for Our Well-Being . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 9 October 2017

Dear Ones,

One of the most difficult things about hepatitis and HIV / AIDS is social stigma; concern about what others may think can be paralyzing in a way.

I feel there are lots of folks in the same boat on this, but everyone feels isolated from everyone else, either because they’re afraid they might get hepatitis or HIV, or because they or someone they love has one of these diseases.

It looks like the key is to realize these are community health issues, and not ‘point the finger’ issues, you know? The more we talk together about our concerns as a community, I feel, the better off we will be.

Fortunately there are some new publications available that point the way to getting around this difficulty about social stigma …

Dear Ones,

Here is my analysis of the subconscious symbolism of four malware phrases, which I have clairaudiently found to be repeated over and over again in the unconscious thought cloud of the world. An edited Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I am here to talk a little bit about some repeating phrases I found in the unconscious thought cloud of the world. I might add a little bit more later, but here are two …

Malware: “Root Canal on That One”

Misalignment of the Kundalini Energy by Reversal of Its Flow. There is the phrase “root canal on that one.” The origin of that phrase is the demon realm, and it has to do with the corruption of the kundalini energy by reversing the flow of the kundalini. Looking at the term ‘root canal’, you are talking about something that causes pain, right? And the ‘root chakra’ is the basal chakra, the one to do with death and survival, and so forth. And the root canal may be considered to be the lower intestine, including the rectum.

Programming of Intestinal Neurons and the Subconscious Nervous System During the Age of Darkness. There is a theory out there about the neurons that are in the lining of the intestine, which have to do with the unconscious nervous system, and a thought that those neurons hold the patterns of the unconscious thought cloud of the world.

So when the subconscious mind says “root canal on that one,” one way of interpreting that has to do with the programming, during the long Ages of Darkness, of the uncentralized neurons of the gut. The gut is a very huge organ, by the way, so there are a lot of neurons there. The theory is about the programming of those neurons with programs that decrease the Light in the Body of Light.

Difficulty of Talking About Pros and Cons of Various Forms of Intercourse. People do not like the idea of thinking of limitation in our freedom of sexual choices, but one very physical interpretation of the phrase “root canal on that one” has to do with the sexual practice of rectal intercourse. I have talked about this before. It is not my intention to place moral strictures or cultural mental filters on people, or … far be it from me … religious beliefs on people.

What Type of Sexual Practice Will Increase Love in the World? But rather, when I talk about sexual practices, I try to find out what will increase love in the world? What type of sexual practice increases love in the world? And so, that has to do with the state of everyone’s chakras when they are practicing sex, right?

Other Questions in Regard to This Malware. These questions came up in regard to the malware “Root Canal on That One” after I recorded this video ..

  • Could it be that reversal of the flow of the kundalini weakens the immune system, making a person more susceptible to STDs, including HIV-AIDS, and their impact on the body?
  • It might be good to explore whether colonoscopy procedures also reverse kundalini flow, and if so, what the long-term effects of this might be on a patient.
  • In addition to the information described in the video, I feel this phrase might be finding its way round the clair plane as a description of traumatic childhood rectal rape … the sort of childhood wounding that Peggy Black … https://www.peggyblack.com/has developed tools to heal.

Malware: “F— Y– in the A– H—“: The Act of Rectal Intercourse and the Energy of Hatred

One of the troubles with rectal intercourse has to do with another oft-repeated phrase which I have referred to before as: “F— Y– in the A– H—.” This phrase has come to mean, in our society, to injure someone else out of hatred. And unfortunately, it is a very graphic depiction of this act of rectal intercourse. So somehow, the lines have gotten crossed, in the unconscious thought cloud of the world, or in the last Age of Darkness, with regard to this sexual practice.

Healing Lower Pranic Column Injury by Using Positive Affirmations and Sending the Energy of Love to the Gastrointestinal Tract. That does not mean that it cannot be practiced with love. But when it is practiced in conjunction with that subconscious symbolism of hatred, then it creates injury to the pranic tube. That can be reversed by our own, positive affirmations and loving feelings towards our gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

So if we get into that situation of having been injured through a sexual practice, the answer to that trouble is always love … because the Universe is made of love. So we love the part that is injured. We love the wounding. And it becomes transformed and healed, both in ourselves, and in other people.

Malware: “I’ll Take My Credit Card Out on That One”

There is another malware phrase that has been coming up. It runs something like this: “I’ll Take My Credit Card Out on That One.” I think that is it.

Materialism, Greed, Instant Gratification. A very strange emotion is connected with this saying that keeps coming up on the astral ‘internet’. I think it has to do with materialism and greed. It is a superficial heart feeling, rather than feeling deeply into the heart, we love to ‘fix’ things through credit card purchases. We do not think about the future, about how we can balance the budget. We just think about getting gratification right now.

Sex for Pay versus the True Nature of Sexuality. This is tied in with the notion of sex for pay, which is very prevalent as a lower chakra visualization all over the world today. There is almost no one in the whole world right now that understands the true nature of sexuality.

The True Nature of Sexuality: Love of the All and Co-creation of Reality. The true nature of sexuality has to do with love and co-creation of reality. Love of the All and co-creation of reality … not love of objects, which are all too perishable and transient, but love of the process of change and transformation itself, and respect for all beings that co-create reality … not just for the person that we are having sex with.

Sex for Pay: Pornography, Sex Workers, Marriage Barter. Through the Dark Age that just passed, that whole idea got narrowed down to the notion of sex for pay. And everybody plays with that notion, these days.

It could be pornography: You have to pay, right? … Take your credit card out on that one. So you pay for this particular pornography viewing session, I assume.

That is one. And there is quite a wide gathering of people … mostly men, I guess, but also women … who think of sex for pay as their means of sexual expression.

Then there is what you see on television all the time … sex workers … a less virtual and more physical act of ‘taking my credit card out for that one’. I do not really know much about that world, but I am pretty sure it deals in cash rather than credit cards. So there you have mostly the notion of sex for pay, and not ‘taking the credit card out for that one’, I will bet. What do I know? [laughs]

Then there is the notion of marriage. And that notion is a little more refined way of talking about sex for pay. Men look for a very good looking woman; they want a steady source of sex, in many cases just in case they cannot find another source of sex. They are looking for a wife ‘that will do’ for the dry times.

And the woman is looking for someone who will support her children, and give her some sense of security with a home. The woman is looking for a home and a family. The man, so as to provide these things for the woman, ‘has to take his credit card out on that one’.

And so marriage is another way of saying ‘sex for pay’: He gets the wife; she gets the credit card.

I have looked all over; I have not found anywhere a truth of the notion that we had in our youth, that free love is a very good thing. I do not see it anywhere in the world today. Instead I see: ‘Take my credit card out for that one’, and I see ‘sex for pay’.

Transforming Misaligned Sexual Energy Through the Incoming Light. What we have to do, as transformational people, is: We have to start where it is. Where it is, is right there. We have to align with that energy … and then, through loving acceptance, allow that energy to transform into the new Light.

I know this is a difficult thing for women to do, because they believe that they love freely, you know? And men, on the other hand, tend to have a much more cynical notion about all that.

Somehow or other, we women have to align with the men’s notion, in order to help them transform into this new energy that is now taking place. If the women feel up to it, that would be a thing to do. I recognize that it is a very difficult thing.

Malware: ‘The Masterplan’ … Personal Greed

Another topic that has been coming up, on the clair audio plane for a long time, has to do with the ‘masterplan’. It seems like everybody has a different masterplan; and all of these masterplans have to do with their own personal gain: Making a bunch of money on real estate; making a bunch of money through conning other people; making a bunch of money by marrying rich women and getting money from them, or marrying rich men and getting money from them … that kind of thing … all to do with a masterplan for me personally, so that I can be very powerful and very rich, and get all the good gratification of all my pleasures that I want, right?

Malware Metaprograms and the Eighth and Ninth Chakra Bow-Tie

Malware Is a Tool of the Demon Realm. This notion of ‘power over’ other people … along with the other notions that I have discussed: Sex for pay; taking the credit card out, for instant gratification, without thinking about the future (for that matter, not aligning with own Soul purpose for the Divine Will); and the idea of the root canal, of the dumbing down of the vast energy of our electromagnetic field … these are all to do with malware metaprograms that the demon realm has in place.

How I Sense the Crown Chakra. The highest entities in the demon realm deal with the playing of the energy in the eighth chakra, and maybe even the ninth chakra, above our heads. By ‘playing at energy’ what I mean is that the pranic energy is coming in [points a few inches above head’] to us, from the Central Sun … through the top of our head, through the crown chakra.

What the crown chakra is, as I feel it, is a bunch of very finely tuned, very intelligent beams of Light … very, very tiny … gadzillion of them coming in. And what the Dark does is, it misaligns, or misqualifies, or ‘untunes’ certain of the grand symphony of Light that is coming in from God. It untunes little portions of it,

It is like, if you can image, the striking felts on a piano; if you open the inside of a piano, you can see where they are striking. Some are out of tune, and they are hitting a little late or slow or making the wrong sound because the wires are tuned wrong … like that. Imagine that type of mechanism coming into the top of our heads, in the shape of a great dome of Light … and all little pinpricks of Light coming in, right?

Tuning Our Bodies to the Incoming Light. In certain places … once you become attuned to the eighth chakra bow-tie, and untying that bow-tie … you will begin to feel the influx of misqualified strands of Light … tiny, tiny little strands of Light coming in, that are saying the wrong thing to our bodies, and creating these astral plays and these incredible astral stories that are so far from the truth of reality.

So let us be on the lookout for the metastories that are being manipulated around, up here [points a few inches above his head]; trying to find the threads that are uniting all humanity, and barbaric sorts of thought patterns! The thoughts noted above are four; probably you will find a few more on your own.

In love, light and joy,

Community Health: Our Children and Crime in the Cities . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 February 2016

Dear Ones,

I would like to propose a possible solution to crime in our large cities. I see a trend for young people to be overly dependent on electronics … as others have observed, to live life ‘virtually’ instead of relating to their peers, family, and community as physical people, face to face.

This has led them to devalue interpersonal relationships, to feel that their interactions with people on the physical plane are just ‘a computer game’, as it were.

Their lives are like a dream of physical reality. It is this dreaming that leads them to drug use as early as preschool. Clairly, one can see the hovering about of drug peddlers near elementary schools. They are there, waiting for the children to get out of school for the day … waiting to sell them drugs from the seat of their car parked at the curb.

They are hiring third graders to sell drugs to first and second graders in playgrounds and parks.

Why do the children buy these drugs? I think it may be because of the electronics … the handhelds and so on … that cause them to live a ‘virtual’ existence … a dreamy existence half way between 3D (the physical world) and 4D (the astral realm). It’s but a small step from a handheld to drug use. Drugs are just a deeper kind of dreaminess.

So now, in the large cities of Earth, the first and second graders are becoming addicted to drugs. How will they pay for them? By robbing their parents, or by breaking into cars after school, or as they get older, by ‘graduating to the bigtime’ and robbing homes.

Also they pay with the only coin that they have, and that is the use of their own bodies by the drug dealers. And so, our children are in danger, in this way or else through intravenous drugs use, of getting STDs, even HIV or hepatitis.

When cars and homes are robbed by the young, they are looking for the thing they hold dear, the cause of their virtual explorations, and that is electronics. And also, jewelry and cash.

We of the older generations are concerned that the young have ‘gone virtual’. Yet we do not know what to do about it. Here is my thought on this …

What if we were to cease to use electronics? If we did, we could set an example of family life for the young. We could become more interactive with our children, our grandchildren, and community. And in addition, there would be nothing in our homes or cars to steal (provided we do not keep electronics, cash or jewelry there).

If there is nothing to steal, then the children will not be able to buy drugs. If we get involved with their lives and do activities with them, instead of just watching TV, then that will also help the situation.

Also, I feel, it would be good for those with very young children to offer them advice about the risks of drug use, and about STDs. Preschool would not be too early an age, I feel.

I welcome your thoughts on this topic.

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