Incarnational Memories by Alice: Mongol Adventurer’s Wife and Keeper of the Treasure . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 21 April 2021

Dear Ones,

I have an incarnational memory of being a woman looking like the woman in this photo, only 10 or 15 years older than she …

LEGEND: ‘I79. Buryatskaya debushka iz Aginskoi dumi / Zabaikalckoi obl’ (‘Buryat girl from the Aginsk Duma / Transbaikal Region’).

As well, I remember standing on the Chinese mainland near the northern Sea of Japan, wearing clothes like those in the photo. I recall my husband was off on one of many long treks to get … whether by theft or by barter … more gold for my family. I kept the family fortune safely round my neck, while he risked his life in his wanderings. I felt sure my husband would return (though many a husband did not, in those days). I sense my memory was from a time much earlier than the date of the photo, which I take to be late 1800s, soon after photography was invented.

The distance from the Sea of Japan to Lake Baikal in Eastern Siberia (Russian republic of Buryatia and Russian Irkutsk oblast or province) is about 1,600 miles. In those days, it seems likely to me that very long treks were not uncommon amongst the people who lived from 1400 BC to 1600 AD, and maybe later on as well.

There was, for instance, the Egtved Girl, a Nordic Bonze Age girl (ca. 1390-1370 BC) who made several annual 1,000-mile treks before passing on in Egtved, Denmark, at age 16-18. – from Link: “Egtved Girl,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egtved_Girl

In the same way, the ruthless Chude (‘Chud’ or Tchude’) raiders from Estonia, Karelia, and Northwestern Russia must have trekked 600 to 1000 miles (depending on whether they were able to cross water, or had to skirt round it) to prey upon the Sami, the nomadic hunter-gather reindeer herders of Norway, Such is the setting for the 1987 Pathfinder film, which memorializes the heroic exploits of a young Sami man in about 1000 AD. For more on that, see Link: “Pathfinder (1987 film), in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pathfinder_(1987_film) ..

In more recent times there was Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, a Spanish explorer of the New World, who was shipwrecked on the Western shore of Texas in 1528 AD. From then till 1537 AD he and a few others traveled barefoot through the uncharted Southwestern part of what was then a land full of hostile Native Americans, and on to Mexico City. That was a distance of 2,400 miles. –from Link: “Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81lvar_N%C3%BA%C3%B1ez_Cabeza_de_Vaca ..

It seems to me within reason that the Mongolian husband of my incarnational memory might have trekked the 1,600 miles from the Sea of Japan to Lake Baikal, and have brought back glowing reports to my people, who then might have undertook the arduous journey to that beautiful lake district, where they are still found today.

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

Black Magic: Psychic Swooning as a Prelude to Murder? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 15 December 2020

Dear Ones,

Here is another of my ‘perilous tales’. These are dangerous events, whether psychical or physical, that have occurred in my life in my life (but thankfully, not in very recent times).

I was just now thinking today about the most curious instances of ‘swooning’ that I experienced in the years 2012-2015 when I went to the meditations of a neo-Hindu group in Los Angeles and also in the Wild West. I had never ‘swooned’ before, but I ‘semi-swooned’ so many times during those meditations that I finally drew pictures of the events that took place in the Wild West …

These ‘swooning’ events were unprecedented in my life … they had not happened before I attended the meditations, and the have not happened since.

I recall, one evening during meditation class in the Wild West, asking the leader of the meditation group about them: What is it that happened just now?

He said, with an expression of disdain on his face, (and I paraphrase): This is just something that you are working through right now. When you get over it, we will go on.

At the time, I believed him; it must be just something I was working through. But later events, and later reading I undertook, have led me to think otherwise.

As I recalled, two of the women in the Wild West group had studied with Indian spiritual teachers. One of those was a revered sculptor and spiritual teacher, who has since passed on. The other, I regret to say I cannot remember his name. Then there were the Indian saints whose images were on display in the meditation rooms. I had to admit I did not know much about any of those spiritual teachers. What might have their personalities been like; what were their social values, their ethics?

Did they feel themselves (as did the leader of that spiritual group in the Wild West) to be above right and wrong? What form might fundraising take in a spiritual group with that philosophy, and whose leader might be an adept at mind control, or psychokinesis, or able to stop the heart beat, or able briefly to obsess other people, or able to induce psychic swooning, or capable of other psychic skills?

I recalled how I had been the only newcomer in the meditations, both in Los Angeles and in the Wild West. I remembered how I was not allowed to speak with the other meditators, and how they never chatted socially with me before or after class. I remembered how I would raise my hand in the Wild West class, and the meditation leader would call on others whose hands were raised, but not me. They were all so very unapproachable; could it be they had a secret to hide?

I had felt surrounded by enigmatic people who, it seemed, had known each other for many years. Could it possibly have been that the Wild West leader of the group had told them not to speak to the new people because they would soon disappear? That he did not want their feelings to be ruffled, or group cohesion to be lessened, by the murder of newcomers? Definitely, there was an air of secrecy … of a secret so deep I might never hope to fathom it.

I began to wonder if the psychic swoon was a ‘black art’ practiced in India by some spiritual teachers, so as to keep food on their tables. For instance, I imagined there might be Indian spiritual teachers who had lured Western women to their lands, perhaps with a promise of marriage. I imagined they might have murdered these women, one after the other … like the husband in the children’s fable about the ruthless man named Blue-Beard with a rapacious twist … for the money in their wallets, then distill their bodily remains into a filtrate to water their gardens. What odd thoughts were those, I wondered?

I wondered if the wandering rishis of India might be feared by the people of that land because of their black magic talents, because, perhaps, their psychic stare might make the beholder become suddenly mad, or might make her have a psychic heart attack, or might make her hand over large sums of money, simply through what is termed ‘mental suggestion’ or ‘mesmerism’.

I also wondered if all India knows about the dangers of running across black magicians, and whether they might have forced the most dangerous of these psychic wunderkinder to leave India and migrate to other countries over the centuries. Could it be, I wondered, that some of the neo-Hindu spiritual teachers who migrated to the United States in the 1900s were blackballed for practice of the psychic arts in India, and exiled to our shores, where they were welcomed by hosts of impressionable young women?

I found an article from the year 1911 describing what was then thought to be such practices in New England …

Link: “The Heathen Invasion: American Women Losing Fortunes and Reason Seeking the Eternal Youth Promised by the Swarthy Priests of the Far East,” by Mabel Potter Daggett, in ‘Hampton Columbian Magazine,” Donald Wayne Castellano-Hoyt, Editor, Vol. XXVII, No. 4, October 1911, pp 399-411 … https://books.google.com/books?id=iUdFAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA399&lpg=PA399&dq=mabel+daggett+heathen+invasion+hampton&source=bl&ots=CrZw7NYjp_&sig=d2DqKSpXoKSnhLUjAdKO7hCfb3k&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiL0PqI0PvbAhXKx4MKHXT7CXcQ6AEINzAD#v=onepage&q=mabel%20daggett%20heathen%20invasion%20hampton&f=false  ..

I read therein the implication that Eastern holy men had been taking, each to himself, many New England spinsters as wives. The article described certain tantric practices [I presume those to be Red Tantra and Black Tantra, described elsewhere in my blog] as the ‘left hand’ worship of the goddess Kali. The ‘right hand’ worship of Kali was said to be that of carnage and slaughter.

Could it be, then, that some neo-Hindu spiritual groups of that time, or perhaps for the more than a century span from 1911 till today, have been practicing Red Tantra and Black Tantra in the United States, along with murder … whether psychic or physical … as a black art acceptable to them in a philosophical sense, under the guise of the worship of the goddess Kali, for those who practice Red Tantra … or maybe under the guise of the wordship of the god Shiva, for those who practice Black Tantra? Could there possibly be neo-Hindu assassin cults flourishing for more than a century here in the United States?

Setting these startling ruminations to one side, I picked up the Hampton Columbian Magazine story once more. I read of Miss Sarah Farmer of New England, who gave up her fortune so that Green Acre (a place where many famous people got together) might be founded. It was said that her explorations into exotic religions eventually unbalanced her mind, with the result that she became an inmate of an insane asylum in Waverly, Massachusetts.

Then there was Miss Aloise Reuss, who though raised in a refined way, began screaming and praying in a Mazdaznan Temple of the Sun and was incarcerated in an Illinois asylum.

Then there was Mrs. Ole Bull, who inherited a considerable fortune from her husband, who passed away. In Mrs. Bull’s home was said to be a meditation chamber visited by Swami Vivekenanda and then later Swami Abhedenanda, whom she may have met at Green Acre.

Upon the death of Mrs. Ole Bull, her Will was found to bequeath several hundred thousand dollars to the Vedantist Society. After what must have been heated legal arguments, and a great deal of local press, the courts set that Will aside on grounds of mental incapacity and undue influence.

But on the very day the verdict against the Vedantist Society was rendered, Mrs. Bull’s daughter, Mrs. Olea Bull Vaughn, died, purportedly of a broken heart.

I gathered, then, there might be some popular understanding and legal underpinning for the notion that the spiritual teachers who migrated to the United States might, through ‘mental suggestion’ or ‘mesmerism’, influence the minds of impressionable women to give them money or land. Were that to be so, then I suggest that getting them physically away from the injuring psychics would, with time, most certainly restore them to mental and spiritual health.

This matched an event in my own psychic experience, to do with another neo-Hindu spiritual group in the year 2011. What could it be about the 11th year of a century, I wonder? Could that an unlucky year, from the standpoint of undue influence of the black arts upon innocent women? For me, I recall it was in the year 2011 that I felt suddenly and inexplicably to have fallen under the influence of a mesmerist, or perhaps a group of six to 15 mesmerists, all practicing the black arts together.

It seemed to me, through clair hearing, that this group had fallen upon hard times financially, and must have decided to use psychic ‘crowding’ to extort money so as to keep out of ‘the red’. I recall making a clair deal with them, to give them what was to me a large sum of money, with the understanding that they would then cease to harass me on the psychic plane.

When I mailed them the money, the psychic din grew 10 times more angry. I became convinced that this spiritual group had been raiding people’s bank accounts and forcing them to flee from Los Angeles for years, under threat of death. I thought that those whom they had victimized, and who had the courage to bring the issue of psychic extortion to the court system, might have been trounced through the group’s mind control of judge and jury during trials.

In a state of psychic terror I never before or since experienced, I fled from Los Angeles. En route, I spoke with a family member about the extorted money. They called the group, and arranged for the money to be returned to me. But, I felt, because of their courageous phone call, I and my family might have endured the wrath of the psychics there all these years. That is for nearly 10 years now. Although the psychic pressure abated for me in the year 2016, it takes merely the thought of the neo-Hindu groups I encountered back then, or their mention in one of my blogs, for an echo of that psychic fury to impinge upon my energy fields.

I shall set aside my personal story, and continue with the fruits of the reading I did on the topic of psychic crime …

I came across some drawings of members of Thuggee Cults of India, which fall upon travelers and murder them, and steal their money …

It occurred to me that these Thuggee Cults of India might be inducing in travelers the very ‘psychic swoon’ I had experienced while meditating with the first-mentioned spiritual group in Los Angeles and the Wild West.

What do you think, dear reader? Could there be such a thing as the ‘psychic swoon’? Might it be employed by members of a spiritual group so as to sneak up on, murder, and rob an unsuspecting traveler in foreign lands?

From my own stance, I hope everyone in the United States, will soon be well informed of the misery entailed should people be targeted in by those neo-Hindus who practice the black arts.

It goes without saying, far from all neo-Hindu spiritual groups practice psychic terrorism. But from my personal experience, I reluctantly surmise there are some that do so, even on our shores.

Knowledge is power, is it not? Without knowledge, the odds are too great for us to seek redress. That is why I added the large category Transcending the Dark – courage under fire  to this website … so that my readers may gain the knowledge needed to counteract such groups, should they have the misfortune to encounter them.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I would like to talk a little today about the things that probably will not go wrong with America but that, in the worst case scenario might take place in a few small towns of America. And so these are things that we should look out for and have a plan for in advance, just in case. That is how I feel. It has to do with social unrest and the economy of the United States.

Rogue Town: Counterfeit Money Laundering to Tourists or Through Local Banks

There is a chance, in the coming years, that one of these scenarios might come up: It might be that a town might have a sheriff or police officer who is in collusion with a crime gang, or a mob or mafia … a crime family. And the crime family or crime gang might be producing its own counterfeit United States ‘money’.

They might be passing it out to the tourists who come into town, and laundering it in that way. Or they might be laundering it through the local banks to other parts of the country.

Now if that happens … if the crime gang controls the town … what we have, as far as I can tell, is secession from the United States. The reason for that is, one of the things the Federal Government does is provide a currency for all the states in the United States.

If a town chooses to produce its own currency, then in effect it is setting itself up as a sovereign nation with its own currency, trading on the goodwill and the economic success of the larger governing body, the United States.

Rogue Town: Siege as An Option to Bring It Into Line

If that were to happen, I wonder if the Department of Homeland Security would be the place to go to try to get the situation handled. I say that because, in a broad sense, the actions of a crime gang town might be considered terrorist actions, I suppose, or secessionist actions, and maybe one of those definitions might be covered by the Department of Homeland Security, which might have enough personnel to take care of it.

If the economy is tight here in America, federally, then one way to handle such a situation of a rogue town would be to create a stage of siege to barricade the incoming and outgoing traffic on the roads to other parts of the country, and to prevent air flights from coming in.

The advantage of this would be … with luck … less loss of life than, say, sending in a SWAT team or a National Guard, or worse yet, doing a pinpoint strike.

So that is my idea … something simple. If that did not work, after a length of time, then I would look at more serious action.

Real Estate Seizure Gambit in a Putative Rogue Town

There is one other thing that LI think might happen; and I think, in this case, it would be a different sort of action that would be taken: It is possible that there may be some small towns coming up, where, if a person from another part of the country buys real estate there … if it is a crime town, like the one I described above … they may find that they are arrested on trumped up charges by, say, the sheriff or police officer who is in league with the crime family, and that their only way of getting out of the situation … or worse yet, execution … would be to give their land to the rogue law enforcement officer for a mere dollar, for a pittance … for nothing … in exchange for a lighter sentence or no death sentence … or a chance to leave town and never come back, as in the old days in the Wild West, the days of formation of the country, when laws were rather ‘catch as catch can’.

If that were to happen, that anyone’s real estate could be seized and sold, and they could be In prison with no real reason for it, then in essence, no one could hold property. No one would have property rights in that town, except for the people in the crime gangs.

The crime gang could move into any house in town that it wanted to … say, murder the owners, and falsify the real estate ownership records saying that they were the new owners, and that the house had been sold for a dollar whatever price it might be.

Dealing with Rogue Towns, from a Federal Standpoint

What does this mean in terms of the United States, and social unrest, and secession? To me it means that the most basic right of American people is being violated; the most basic right of property ownership is being violated. And so that town … that rogue town … has violated the United States Constitution.

Again I feel that this is an act of secession. You could consider it a terrorist act too. But in this case what I would do is ask the CIA Factbook to list that town as a place that is too dangerous for Americans from other parts of the country to visit; and to explain why. And I would ask them to issue an advisory that people should not buy land in that area, and to explain why.

It would be kind of like it used to be, to buy land in Mexico: You could not really buy land; you had to go in with a partner who was a Mexican national, if you were American. It might be kind of like that, in rogue United States towns, eventually.

Of course, the other thing that could be done, if property rights are constantly violated, is simply for the United States government to prohibit United States citizens from purchasing land there, if they are not natives of the local area.

Really it would be as if the rogue town were a foreign nation, and the property rights of the mainland Americans would need to be rewritten in the context of that. That is what I feel. We may experience a town or two like that, in the coming years, since everyone is becoming psychic, and they are clearing things out of their energy fields.

Such rogue towns might even exist right now, and they might need a little ‘what for’ … a little getting in tune with the situation in the rest of America. That is what I think.

Conclusion

I would not take this too seriously. We Americans are a strong people, and we can take it in stride, even if it should happen in the rare instance.

Enough talking. You all take care. Love you lots. Have a wonderful February.

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

Dear Ones,

STORIES BY ALICE: MY LAST VISIT HOME, FOR THANKSGIVING 2014

I recall on my last visit home, for Thanksgiving 2014, I was staying with my uncle Frank Marbury Clagett, since deceased. I was there for Thanksgiving, and to visit around where I used to be in my childhood … where I had grown up, in the country near the small town of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, which is right close to Washington, D.C.

When I was growing up, my father worked in downtown Washington, D.C., and commuted back and forth to our home near Upper Marlboro daily. That place where we lived was across the road from Ingleside, my Grandmother Clagett’s farm, where my father’s brothers Frank Marbury Clagett, John Douglas Clagett, and Robert Joseph Bowie Clagett lived with my grandmother Alice Delores Clagett Clagett when I was quite young.

Adjacent to their farm was Keokuk, the farm where two of my great uncles, George Maxwell Clagett and Guiger Harry Clagett, and Uncle Gui’s wife Margaret Clagett. There is more about them here …

Citation: “The Clagetts of Keokuk,” by Elizabeth Clagett Clark, 10 June 1986, self-published, out of print.

I remember I liked my great uncles and great aunt very much, and how kind they were to me.  Uncle Guy and Aunt Margaret passed on in my early youth, leaving only Uncle Max there. Then my uncle Marbury’s twin brother George Guiger Clagett and his wife Helen Clagett moved in; they had a son Richard.

Next door to us was the farm owned by Commander and Mrs. Justin Miller, who were distant relatives of ours. And elsewhere along the road on which we lived were the farms of people who, while not related, were well known to us, and with whom we were on good terms.

A few miles north along the Ritchie-Marlboro Road was Concord, the farm where my mother Katherine Berry Clagett grew up …

On my trips back home to Upper Marlboro I would stop by those places I remembered from my childhood, along with the since deserted Marlboro Elementary School I attended in first grade, which is across from the Post Office and next to the tomb of Dr. William Beanes …

STORIES BY ALICE: SANCTUARY FROM THE DEMON REALM AT TRINITY EPISCOPAL CHURCH

As it happened, Trinity Episcopal Church was just across the road from where Uncle Marbury lived in Upper Marlboro, a fact integral to the story I am about to tell …

On that, the most recent of my trips home, for Thanksgiving 2014, I was plagued at night by the Demon realm. I cannot put forth the why or where of it, but the fact is that demons would swarm round me at night when I was there.

I recall one night during my five-day visit, when all that became just too much for me. In the early evening, I trekked across Main Street, and round to Church Street, where my mother’s Trinity Episcopal Church was located.

As I neared the church, I began to feel a greater and greater sense of sanctuary. I walked up the brick walk, past the graves and tombstones of my mother’s ancestors. A cold wind was whistling round me, and the Darkness rustled down amongst the leaves of the holly trees on the front lawn of the church …

The front door and the side doors of the church were locked up tight; so, in my desperation, I walked up the front stairs of the church …

As I walked up those stairs, the demons pursuing me were repulsed by the Light of faith abiding there. They flew up howling into the sky, and then were gone away.

For some time I sat next the front door of the church, which shielded my back from the cold wind. I was listening for the return of the demons, but they did not come back. I was safe there, saved through my mother’s faith, and the faith of the minister and the people there, from the deepest Darkness ever to pursue me in this lifetime.

That is why I recommend to my reader: In times of deepest despair, seek sanctuary on Holy Ground. If there is a church nearby, even if you cannot enter the church door, you may find, as did I, that the steps of a church offer safety of Spirit, and of physical form. Here is a song I wrote about that …

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.

Dear Ones,

Here is an excerpt from an earlier blog to do with Solar Cycles and X-Flares. The great impact of the X-flares of the years 2000-2001 may have been the cause of the phenomena of telepathy and electromagnetic sensitivity that began to affect humankind at that time. To Lightworkers, Wayshowers, and Pathfinders, these phenomena are signs of the 2012 Shift and of the Ascension of Earth to the Fifth Dimension … [Excerpt]

THE X-FLARES OF YEARS 2000-2001 AND THE PHENOMENA OF GLOBAL TELEPATHY AND EMF-SENSITIVITY

For the years 2000 and 2001, during which many people globally began to rise to telepathic Awareness, and to become EMF-sensitive, I did a search of NASA SWPC data available through weekly reports on the NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information website, (5) and came up with annual and daily figures for X-flare occurrences. I have included the data for 1999, a pre-maximum year, for contrast …

X-Flares per Year, 1999-2001

Dear Ones,

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

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

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

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

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

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

LET THERE BE NO RETURN TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR OF OLD

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

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

… as well as this more tempered account …

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

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

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

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

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

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

WILL PLAGUE COMPEL US TO FLAGELLANT PARADES?

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

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

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

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

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

ON PERFECTING WORKS OF CORPOREAL MERCY

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

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

In the Book of Matthew, Christ says …

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CONCLUSION

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

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

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