SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I was talking to a deva right now. And I said: This is one of the rules of life on Earth: There is always another way in; and there is always another way out.

And someone chuckled and said: Oh, Is that the rule?!

This is the way out from this place here …

Dwarves and Elves: Keeping Dwarves from Grabbing Our Goods . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about the alliance between dwarves and elves; about home invasion and cat bothering by dwarves; and about ways I tried to get them to leave my house …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have a little news about the dwarves and the elves. It seems that the dwarves and the elves have an alliance. This has to do with the human beings, and obtaining gold from the human beings for the dwarves.

One of the things that dwarves do, that is difficult for human beings, is that they want to own the houses and the pets of human beings. They want to take over. They want to own the possessions of human beings for themselves, and for the race of dwarves.

And so I have been having a little trouble with the dwarves lately … much more so than the elves. The elves are mischievous, but the dwarves are very … I would say … you know that word ‘ornery’, sometimes they call it. They want what they want, you know? No matter what, they want what they want.

They are very courageous, and very strong, and very stubborn. And so I have been coming home, and I have been having talks with the dwarves and the elves. I have been coming home, and they have been carrying on ceaseless palavers in my house … and also, messing with my cat … as if they owned my house and my cat!

So today I was just trying to figure out some new plan to deal with the dwarf incursion. It is kind of like ‘home invasion’ by nature spirits! [laughs]

Yesterday I tried telling them that America is no longer on the gold standard, and that we Americans do not really have any gold to speak of, anymore; the gold is all used for industrial purposes and other purposes like that. We do not have gold; they have to look elsewhere for gold.

For a while that worked, but then today they were back again, so I had to think of something new. So I tried like this, saying an affirmation firmly through my navel point energy, my will power, over and over again: This is my house! This house is mine! This is my house! This is my house!

And then my cat came around and I said: This is my cat … my cat Oreo! This cat is my cat!

… like that, over and over again. And it interrupted the flow of the dwarves that had been hanging out on my private property. After a while they got aggravated … not supremely aggravated, but rather, disgruntled and grumpy. And they left.

So I suggest assertion of will power … no more will power than is needed and necessary to the situation … in order to get the dwarves to leave your home! [laughs]

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

Off he will cast

To get wise to this sort of MO, it might be good to view the British 2-part drama “Secret Smile,” which stars Kate Ashfield and David Tennant … Link: “Secret Smile” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Smile ..

I do not advise ‘getting even’ or ‘giving someone what they deserve’ like the heroine, though. The thing to do is to ask local law enforcement for help, I feel.

In love, light and joy,

Afterthought: I wonder if this trouble that comes up every once in a while has something to do with the annual Perseid meteor shower (associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle), which is taking place just now?

Last night it felt like big menacing dark things were zooming by … a crowd of them, almost like hostile thought forms zooming through my head.

Could there be an association between the energy of the annual Perseid meteor shower and that of undercover serial killers and serial rapists? … a ‘spark-off’ that turns them from mild mannered Dr. Jekylls to evil Mr. Hydes this time of year? … Link: “Perseids,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseids ..

Repeating Astral Phrases as a Feature of Our Commensal and Adventitious Microorganisms . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I added the below to this blog today …

Link: “Hellworld Scenes and Amazing Astral Stories,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 24 May 2016 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5j0 ..

Since it is so different from the rest of the blog, and is just a postscript there, I thought it might be best to break it out as a separate blog here, with slight changes from the original. It has to do with some repeating subconscious phrases I had noticed back in 2016 …

I came across an understanding that some of the repeating subconscious phrases I used to hear on the astral plane may attach to life cycle activities of or cultural difference among our commensal organisms.

For instance, It seems the repeating phrase “My life has no quality” has to do with lowered blood sugar; it may be a lament of the yeast cells that inhabit the human body.

The repeating phrase “You have no personality” is apparently a comment of the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon; it may have to do with prejudice against the yeasts, which are quite a bit more simplistic in their language and thought forms than are the Martians.

The repeating phrase “You are one big ego” is apparently a comment of the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon; it may have to do with Higher Mental Body functions, as our Martians have a greater influence on the Lower Mental Body, where they live, than on the Higher Mental Body.

Astral stories about people stealing other people’s keys and walking into their houses, or hacking people’s credit cards and ripping off their money, or taking their lives and their money may have to do with our body cells and the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon recoiling in horror at the attacks of viruses.

Hidden microphones and cameras: Total lack of privacy: This may have to do adjustment by our Martian bacterial colonists of the colon to the awakening of human telepathy globally. The Elder Race, the Martians, are far more telepathic than we, and in fact it was through their expertise in DNA manipulation that most of Earth species came into being. More about this in my blog category: Mars – Martians – the Elder Race

Not mentioned in the above-referenced blog are these repeating subconscious phrases:

“You are a homosexual” … Yeasts say this over and over again, and very enthusiastically, when there is plenty of sugar circulating in the blood, so that they can joyfully accomplish assexual reproduction

“Are you a homosexual?” is used by the yeast inhabitants of our bodies when greeting newly arriving yeasts. As I understand it, they are asking whether the newcomers are the sort that can have sexual reproduction with them, or whether they are they will be reproducing asexually.

“Budie holers” is a repeating, derogatory phrase used by the Martian bacterial colonists of the colon with regard to the HIV virus

“V— D—“ was a repeating, derogatory phrase used by the Martian bacterial colonists of the colon with regard to the viruses that attempt to cause sickness in their human ‘space stations’. They have since moved along to other phrases with the same meaning, but I cannot recall what those are right now.

The viruses talk in a sharp, sinister whisper full of intent to rip off the lives of the people in which they find themselves. They are villainous little dudes; which leads me to think that listening to pure musical harmonics might cause them to fare less well inside us.

If you hear repeating phrases on the astral plane, and know a little about microbiology, I encourage you to to match the phrases you hear to the wants and needs and cultural expectatoins of some of our commensal organisms as well.

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

On Growing Older . by Alice B. Clagett

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on eldercare. There is a lightly 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 mention something about growing older, and how it is like being a young child again. Of course, everybody knows that they call older age a ‘second childhood’.  But as far as the School of Theosophy teachings are concerned, we could think of the different types of a human being; specifically, the Lower Mind (or ‘Lower Mental Body’) and the Higher Mind (or ‘Higher Mental Body’).

As you may know from my writings, the Lower Mind has to do with the gut brain, and the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon, that I have mentioned in other blogs. The Higher Mind is the brain’s mind, and the one that we use … for better or for worse … during most of our adult life.

If you think about how a child is, and how we treat a child, a child does not have rational ability, or analytical ability, to speak of. And the same is true of an older senior citizen. Both are using their gut brain, otherwise known as their Lower Mental Body, or their Lower Mind.

The way of thinking of the gut brain has to do with the microbes in the gut. An older senior citizen, like a very young child, is capable of great extremes of emotion: very great anger … ‘temper tantrum’ stuff … or very great joy; happiness in the moment, in the Eternal Now. In this regard, an older senior citizen is capable of Awareness … the Soul’s Awareness in the Now.

In today’s senior care facilities, the wonderful qualities of the senior citizens’ mental approach are overlooked, and in fact, even amongst kin … brothers, sisters, and children … the way of thinking of the older senior citizen is often criticized and spoken of negatively. And so, the senior citizen can become very sad because of that.

My suggestion is that we look at the senior citizens as if they were young children again, and treat them with that same loving kindness with which we treat our children. I think that will be closer to the truth of the matter; for, even if a senior citizen has what we term Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, they are capable of interacting with us on a level of childlike innocence that we were heretofore unable to experience with them.

So that is something to look at: Let us treat our older senior citizens in the same loving way that we treat our very young children.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a health technique called the ‘stomach slap’. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Stomach Slap for Positive Ki

I have a new technique for you, called the ‘Stomach Slap’. It is a health technique. You must not do it too strongly; just in a pleasant kind of way. And not for too long; just for three or five gentle slaps alternately on each side of the abdomen. And the benefits of this technique are …

  • It gets the attention of your Martians, who live in your colon, your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and
  • It breaks the rhythm of entrainment to the unconscious thought cloud of the world … which sets up a rhythmic electromagnetic (EMF) ‘drumbeat’ in the colon especially during the full moon, sometimes the new moon, and Friday and Saturday night in the cities of Earth.
  • In addition, it brings up vital force, or ki, or chi, or prana, so that your energy field is more able to create a strong barrier of energy to protect you from negative thoughts and negative astral beings.

It is a very simple technique; it goes like this [slaps sides of abdomen gently, three times each side] …

I Am I, I Am I, I Am That Am
Kriya by Alice B. Clagett
14 June 2019

I Am I.
I Am I.
I Am That Am.

I used these hand gestures while speaking this chant, while standing …

  • Right arm at side; left hand in fist, taps chest lightly at level of heart when saying the words in single quotation marks: ‘I’ Am I, ‘I’ Am I, ‘I’ ‘Am’ That Am.
  • Right arm at side; left arm extended to front, palm down, fingers extended forward, when saying the italicized words: I Am ‘I’, I Am ‘I’, I Am That Am.
  • Right arm at side; left arm extended to front, palm up, fingertips forward, when saying the final, italicized words: I Am I, I Am I, I Am That ‘Am’.

I am left-handed, so it is natural for me to gesture with my left hand; those who are right-handed may prefer to perform these gestures with their right hand.

Photos of these gestures are below.

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here are passages from “A Textbook of Theosophy” by C.W. Leadbeater, to do with thought-forms, and how they operate within our own minds, and what happens when we send thought-forms to other people’s minds.

Mention is made of how our thoughts create what in my work is termed ‘mental filters’ that blind us to true reality, until we make the conscious effort to clear our minds and elevate our thoughts.

Also addressed are what I term ‘samskaras’, or latent mental tendencies; the importance of overcoming them; and how samskaras may seem to take on a life of their own.

After that are passages from the same book explaining the nature of the astral body, whose urges may make it seem as if there is a devil tempting us, or may lead us to mistake the ‘shadow of the personality’ (as I term it) for the man himself, when in fact these urges are ours to curb and subdue. 

In my own work, these last passages on the astral body might be said to apply to the gut brain, the lower triangle and the Lower Mental Body; and to the life of the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon …

HOW OUR THOUGHT FORMS SOMETIMES TRAVEL TO OTHER PEOPLE, AND SOMETIMES STAY IN OUR OWN HEADS

“Every thought builds a form; if the thought be directed to another person it travels to him; if it be distinctly selfish it remains in the immediate neighbourhood of the thinker; if it belongs to neither of these categories it floats for awhile in space and then slowly disintegrates. Every man therefore is leaving behind him wherever he goes a trail of thought forms; as we go along the street we are walking all the time amidst a sea of other men’s thoughts.”

HOW OTHER PEOPLE’S THOUGHT FORMS MAY DRIFT THROUGH OUR HEADS

“If a man leaves his mind blank for a time, these residual thoughts of others drift through it, making in most cases but little impression upon him. Sometimes one arrives which attracts his attention, so that his mind seizes upon it and makes it its own, strengthens it by the addition of its force, and then casts it out again to affect somebody else. A man therefore, is not responsible for a thought which floats into his mind, because it may be not his, but someone else’s; but he is responsible if he takes it up, dwells upon it and then sends it out strengthened.”

HOW OUR THOUGHTS CREATE MENTAL FILTERS THROUGH WHICH WE VIEW THE WORLD

“Self-centred thought of any kind hangs about the thinker, and most men surround their mental bodies with a shell of such thoughts. Such a shell obscures the mental vision and facilitates the formation of prejudice.”

HOW THE STORED ENERGY OF OTHER PEOPLE’S THOUGHT FORMS MAY ABIDE IN OUR OWN MINDS AND NOT DISCHARGE UNTIL OUR MINDS ARE STILL

“Each thought-form is a temporary entity. It resembles a charged battery, awaiting an opportunity to discharge itself. Its tendency is always to reproduce its own rate of vibration in the mental body upon which it fastens itself, and so to arouse in it a like thought. If the person at whom it is aimed happens to be busy or already engaged in some definite train of thought, the particles of his mental body are already swinging at a certain determinate rate, and cannot for the moment be affected from without. In that case the thought-form bides its time, hanging about its object until he is sufficiently at rest to permit its entrance; then it discharges itself upon him, and in the act ceases to exist.

HOW OUR SAMSKARAS, OR LATENT TENDENCIES, MAY ABIDE IN OUR OWN MINDS, AND NOT DISCHARGE UNTIL OUR MINDS ARE STILL

“The self-centred thought behaves in exactly the same way with regard to its generator, and discharges itself upon him when opportunity offers. If it be an evil thought, he generally regards it as the suggestion of a tempting demon, whereas in truth he tempts himself.”

HOW THESE SAMSKARAS MAY SEEM TO TAKE ON A LIFE OF THEIR OWN

“Usually each definite thought creates a new thought-form; but if a thought-form of the same nature is already hovering round the thinker, under certain circumstances a new thought on the same subject, instead of creating a new form, coalesces with and strengthens, the old one, so that by long brooding over the same subject a man may sometimes create a thought-form of tremendous power. If the thought be a wicked one, such a thought-form may become a veritable evil influence, lasting perhaps for many years, and having for a time all the appearance and powers of a real living entity.”

–The above six sections are from Citation: “A Textbook of Theosophy,” by C. W. Leadbeater, 1912, Chapter V.

Here are other passages from a different chapter of the same book …

ON THE NATURE OF THE ASTRAL BODY, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF RESISTING ITS URGES

This passage might be said to apply to the Gut Brain and the Lower Triangle, and to the life of the Martian colonists of the Human Colon …

“The molecules of the astral body are constantly changing, as are those of the physical body, but nevertheless the life in the mass of those astral molecules has a sense, though a very vague sense, of itself as a whole—as a kind of temporary entity. It does not know that it is part of a man’s astral body; it is quite incapable of understanding what a man is; but it realizes in a blind way that under its present conditions it receives many more waves, and much stronger ones, than it would receive if floating at large in the atmosphere. It would then only occasionally catch, as from a distance, the radiation of man’s passions and emotions; now it is in the very heart of them, it can miss none, and it gets them at their strongest.

“Therefore it feels itself in a good position, and it makes an effort to retain that position. It finds itself in contact with something finer than itself—the matter of the man’s mental body; and it comes to feel that if it can contrive to involve that finer something in its own undulations, they will be greatly intensified and prolonged.”

ARE HUMANS EVIL? DOES THE DEVIL TEMPT US?

“Since astral matter is the vehicle of desire and mental matter is the vehicle of thought, this instinct, when translated into our language, means that if the astral body can induce us to think that we want what it wants, it is much more likely to get it. Thus it exercises a slow steady pressure upon the man—a kind of hunger on its side, but for him a temptation to what is coarse and undesirable. If he be a passionate man there is a gentle but ceaseless pressure in the direction of irritability; if he be a sensual man, an equally steady pressure in the direction of impurity.”

“A man who does not understand this usually makes one of two mistakes with regard to it: either he supposes it to be the prompting of his own nature, and therefore regards that nature as inherently evil, or he thinks of the pressure as coming from outside—as a temptation of an imaginary devil. The truth lies between the two.

“The pressure is natural, not to the man but to the vehicle which he is using; its desire is natural and right for it, but harmful to the man, and therefore it is necessary that he should resist it. If he does so resist, if he declines to yield himself to the feelings suggested to him, the particles within him which need those vibrations become apathetic for lack of nourishment, and eventually atrophy and fall out from his astral body, and are replaced by other particles, whose natural wave-rate is more nearly in accordance with that which the man habitually permits within his astral body.”
