SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Sometimes people feel that they have a Soul, but they just do not relate to their Soul, or they do not have a relationship with their Soul. I hear that most often from scientific people, because they are working mostly with their left brain … their logical brain … in their scientific work.

I think it takes the right side of the brain … the intuitive side … to begin to develop a relationship with the Soul. So it has to do with lack of whole brain function … lack of Cosmic Mind … lack of connection with Universal Mind … without the sensitivity, the intuitive feeling, that we do have a Soul, and that it is vitally important to talk to our Soul.

The connection of the body and the mind and the emotions with the Soul is strengthened by thoughts of the Soul and speech with the Soul … by our petitioning the Soul for help.

Petitioning the Soul for help … aligning with the purpose and the mission of the Soul … those things strengthen our Soul connection.

Ignoring the Soul has the opposite effect. Going against the purpose and mission of the Soul has an even stronger effect of attenuating the thread, or cord, connecting our subtle bodies with the Soul. This thread or cord is variously termed the silver cord, the silver thread, the antahkarana, the kundalini, the central vertical power current, the pranic column, and the pranic tube …

Link: “Soulless Men,” passages by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky … with further thoughts by Alice B. Clagett, published on 13 July 2018; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-9Cc ..

Constantly acting against the hopes of the Soul … or against the very nature of the Soul … eventually causes the cord that connects our subtle bodies, our ego, and our Awareness with the Soul to snap. And that results in the state we call Soullessness: The Soulless man, or the Soulless woman.

In church terms this kind of person is sometimes called the ‘Irredeemable Reprobate’, or the person of ‘utmost depravity’. In psychology or psychiatry the terms used are antisocial personality, sociopath, and psychopath. In law enforcement the term might be something colorful, such as ‘scum of the Earth’.

Conversely, if we find ourselves in a state of attenuated connection with the Soul, then paying more and more attention to alignment with the Soul purpose and mission, to conversations with the Soul, to respect for and Awareness of the Soul, will make that connection stronger and stronger, and us into healthier and more vibrant, and more complete human beings.

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

SCHOOL
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
2 July 2018

 

What bookish notion schools a bairn
rapt, like a crayfish by a languid bourne?

What did that crawdad ever learn,
that it knew not on finding form?

How, in fact, shall I take in
all the beings that I am?

How frisk the veil of by and by
where tens on tens of folks be I ?

— one just borning and the next full grown
— one soft cocooning, in carnation’s womb
— 
one swift careening through an astral gloom
turning, hand outstretched, to angelic lumen

Now regal male decked rough, reared up full wild
Now just past childhood mother cradling her own child

Guerrero here, there carpenter or nun
Pagan, Christian, wondering One
Trying, falling, free, then bound
yearning, spurning, missing, found!

How may we reckon age or race or wealth?
How learn the weight of wisdom of our Self?

How find a mooring in this place, that time
when placeless timeless Hearts toward God incline?

He is the flower of the Soul
His the enthralling, star-spanned role
His is the basket that all lives enspline
He is the teacher, He the rhyme

. . . . .

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

Mahabharata on Virtual Reality, Physical Reality, and Cosmic Reality . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 27 May 2018

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

The part of the great Indian epic “The Mahabharata” referred to in the video is known, separately, as “The Bhagavad Gita.” The reference in the video is to a very famous explanation made by “The Lord of Hearts” (elsewhere termed “Lord Krishna”) to Arjuna, on the field of battle.

There is a Summary after the video, and a translation of the relevant text from “The Bhagavad Gita” in the “More Information” section that follows the Summary.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

You know, when it says in the Mahabharata that the world is like a great show put on by God, or play, or like that … it does not mean that we should not take real life seriously and live ethically. It just means that, if we are faced with despair over the way things are going in the world … if we are very upset … then the thing to do is to place it in the hands of God.

By making changes on the internet regarding facts, and turning them into fiction, or by making a movie about something, we cannot change reality. We have virtual reality, and then we have true reality. And then we have the astral realm, as well; and many others … the Kingdom of God, and so forth.

If we want to make a change in a particular version of reality … a particular dimension … then we need to work within that dimension, to make that change … not in a virtual way.

It is true that societal expectation influence the way people vote, for instance. And that the movies help to create public opinion. But in and of itself, a movie about a true-life event cannot change the karma of that event. That needs to be worked out in the real world.

I would like to make that perfectly clear: Changing the facts online cannot change the facts in the real world. A virtual reality is not a physical reality.

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

Excerpt from Link: “The Bhagavad Gita,” by Vyasa, translated by Edwin Arnold, “Chapter 2: Of Doctrines” … https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Bhagavad_Gita_(Arnold_translation)/Chapter_2 … public domain

“Sanjaya. So spake Arjuna to the Lord of Hearts,
And sighing, “I will not fight!” held silence then.
To whom, with tender smile, (O Bharata!)
While the Prince wept despairing ‘twixt those hosts,
Krishna made answer in divinest verse:
Krishna. Thou grievest where no grief should be! thou speak’st
Words lacking wisdom! for the wise in heart
Mourn not for those that live, nor those that die.
Nor I, nor thou, nor any one of these,
Ever was not, nor ever will not be,
For ever and for ever afterwards.
All, that doth live, lives always! To man’s frame
As there come infancy and youth and age,
So come there raisings-up and layings-down
Of other and of other life-abodes,
Which the wise know, and fear not. This that irks —
Thy sense-life, thrilling to the elements —
Bringing thee heat and cold, sorrows and joys,
‘Tis brief and mutable! Bear with it, Prince!
As the wise bear. The soul which is not moved,
The soul that with a strong and constant calm
Takes sorrow and takes joy indifferently,
Lives in the life undying! That which is
Can never cease to be; that which is not
Will not exist. To see this truth of both
Is theirs who part essence from accident,
Substance from shadow. Indestructible,
Learn thou! the Life is, spreading life through all;
It cannot anywhere, by any means,
Be anywise diminished, stayed, or changed.
But for these fleeting frames which it informs
With spirit deathless, endless, infinite,
They perish. Let them perish, Prince! and fight!
He who shall say, ‘Lo! I have slain a man!’
He who shall think, ‘Lo! I am slain!’ those both
Know naught! Life cannot slay. Life is not slain!
Never the spirit was born; the spirit shall cease to be never;
Never was time it was not; End and Beginning are dreams!
Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit forever;
Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems!
Who knoweth it exhaustless, self-sustained,
Immortal, indestructible, — shall such
Say, ‘I have killed a man, or caused to kill?’

“Nay, but as when one layeth
His worn-out robes away,
And, taking new ones, sayeth,
‘These will I wear to-day!’
So putteth by the spirit
Lightly its garb of flesh,
And passeth to inherit
A residence afresh.”

Individualisation of the Souls of Pets . by the Theosophists . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Compiled on 27 November 2013; revised on 21 March 2018

  • THEOSOPHY ON INDIVIDUALISATION OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS
  • INDIVIDUALISATION, INDIVIDUATION, AND ENLIGHTENMENT

Dear Ones,

Here is an explanation from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, regarding how house pets move from sharing an animal group soul to having an individual Soul. This process is known, in the School of Theosophy, as individualisation, or in modern spelling, individualization. After that is a description of how this Theosophical concept differs from the Jungian notion of individuation and the concept of enlightenment.

THEOSOPHY ON INDIVIDUALISATION OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS

“Large numbers of the higher domestic animals have reached this stage [“when there is only one animal form attached to the Group-Soul”] and have really become separate entities, incarnating in a succession of animal bodies; although they have not as yet, of course, attained to the possession of a causal body – the true mark of individualisation . . .

“. . . any animal which is now attaining, or even approaching individualisation, must be very remarkably in advance of the others, and the number of such cases is consequently very small. Nevertheless, they do occasionally occur. Close association with man is necessary to produce this result . . .

“We may note two factors at work:

“1) the emotions and thoughts of the man act constantly upon those of the animal, and tend to raise him to a higher level both emotionally and intellectually;

“2) the animal, if kindly treated, develops, devoted affection for his human friend, and also unfolds his intellectual powers in trying to understand that friend and anticipate his wishes.

“It has been found that individualisation, which lifts an entity definitely from the animal kingdom into the human, can take place only for certain kinds of animals,—one for each of the seven great types or ‘rays’. In fact, it is only among domesticated creatures, and by no means among all classes, even of these, that individualisation occurs. Of these classes, we already know certainly the elephant, the monkey, the dog and cat. The horse is possibly a fifth.

“Up to each of these heads of types leads a long line of wild animals, which has not been fully investigated. It is known, however, that wolves, foxes, jackals, and all such creatures culminate in the dog: lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars and ocelots culminate in the domestic cat.”

“It should be noted also that an animal of any given type, that individualises into a human being, will become a man of that same type, and no other.” –from Citation: “The Causal Body and the Ego,” Ch XII. Animal Group-Souls,” by Arthur E. Powell, public domain … For the above excerpt, see pp 61-63.

INDIVIDUALISATION, INDIVIDUATION, AND ENLIGHTENMENT

I note that individualisation, in the Theosophical sense, or integration of a causal body amongst the subtle bodies, is different from the Jungian notion of individuation. The latter refers to self-actualization, or integration of the subconscious into the conscious mind. –from Link: “Jung and His Individuation Process,” in Journal Psyche … http://journalpsyche.org/jung-and-his-individuation-process/ ..

This latter … individuation through self-actualization … is one step in the process of enlightenment. Another is integration of the conscious mind with the superconscious mind.

The result is auric integration: lower triangle (subconscious mind) combined with fourth through seventh chakras (conscious mind). And that combined with the 8th through the 12th chakras.

Then there may be expansion, in a mystical sense, to become one with Gaia, with our Solar System, with our Milky Way, with our Universe, and with the Multiverse. This may take place as we move on, to Awareness of the unformed dimensions past the transpersonal formed dimensions. See …

Ascension Guide – Body of Light – Soul Field . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 21 March 2014; revised and republished on 7 January 2018

Dear Ones,

I took an online class from Daniella Breen … https://daniellambreen.com/ … recently. Gosh, was it terrific! During the class she introduced me to my guardian angel and my Ascension guide … I mean, she actually did … I cannot imagine how … introduce me to these two beings, and now I am able to call back their energy into my presence any time. This is so very out there for me that I have been struggling to find words for the experience.

My guardian angel is such a sweet, feminine, angelic presence, such a comfort to me.

My Ascension guide is quite different … a being of Light, who has been through many incarnations. He asked me to relate to him as he was in a specific incarnation … as a masculine presence in a paternal role. His energy of that incarnation and his ‘being of Light’ energy have joined mine in my pranic core (aka the pranic tube, pranic column, central vertical power current, kundalini, antahkarana, silver cord, or silver thread) … the tube of energy that runs vertically through the middle of my body. I sensed immediately that his energy completed my own, and would help me clear the distortions of my Light body … what are sometimes known as samskaras or karmic miasmic distortions.

As I have mentioned in an earlier blog, last time I meditated, I called my guardian angel, and she touched my right hand!

So then I called my Ascension guide, and could very clearly feel his blending presence in and above my auric field. Gosh, I thought, this Ascension guide must be resplendently large. How nice that he wants to hang out with me here on the physical plane! I was reminded of the pictures of the Buddha sitting under the bodhi tree … as if the Buddha represented my physical body, and the bodhi tree this wonderful being of Light that has been hanging out with me, helping me clear, and guiding me.

Image: Buddha sitting under the Bodhi tree, with blue background …  http://data.whicdn.com/images/58843423/15080_630082873675118_1648347003_n_large.jpg ..

Lots of times the Buddha is depicted under the bodhi tree, but the pictures usually leave out the top of the tree, like this …

Image: Buddha sitting under the Bodhi tree, not showing the top of the tree …  https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/e1313-buda.jpg ..

This is an interesting thing … we tend to relate only to the energy all around our body, like the trunk of the tree is to the left and right of the Buddha in the picture. But what if our energy … the energy of our Higher Self, to which my Ascension guide is helping me connect … is far higher … and maybe far lower … than that?

What if it is a whole starry sky of energy that belongs in our Soul field? Or the entire Light grid of Earth? Or a ‘tree trunk’ of Light that extends upward to the very Source of All? Point is, our body of Light and our Soul field may be lots bigger than we envision … At least as tall as a sapling tree, for starters. That is pretty easy to envision.

I am with Lord Buddha, and my Ascension guide on this! I love the beauty and grandeur of my own tree of life.

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

Knocking on Heaven’s Door . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 1 January 2018
Previously titled: Knock Knock Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door . by Bob Dylan . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Video: “Bob Dylan – Knockin’ on heaven’s door with lyrics on screen,” by John CI, 16 June 2013 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w5MSAUbK08 … COMMENT: Say, where is that place at the beginning of the video? Is that the blue Pacific across from Neptune’s Net on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH)?

For me personally, the Ascension process sometimes seems a little like dying … At the very least, the death of my ego, of my existence as a personality. I mean, what is on the other side of that door?

In the last week or two I have bounced around all over 4D … from the seventh level of hell to the seventh level of heaven. And everywhere in between. Seems like every time I get up there around seventh heaven, I fall into some sort of in-group, out-group mentality. Like I need to identify with a Soul group in order to barge through the ‘glass ceiling’ between 4D and 5D. Like I am sunk in the dunk unless I team up with these or those. Go figure!

And then there is the consciousness grid about being led by someone in the know, about marching under the flag of a leader, about believing in this or that … Is Divine Mother my all in all? Or is it simply the All? Or may I rely on my Ascension team of Light beings? Am I damned if I do? Am I damned if I do not? Is it ok to let this chaos of ideas flow through my mental mind and gut brain? Will I get through this? Will I be left behind?

It is true, the way seems dark, but in those moments of brilliant intuition I have a certain knowledge that my Soul, in all its sacred majesty, knows the path. I do not need to believe in anything …

Better, I am guessing, not to believe in anything. Open the door of my perceptions, and greet the Unknown. No matter what, my feet are standing right here on Mother Earth.

Maybe I will take a drive up PCH today. Maybe when I knock, the mystery of All that is will whisper in my ear!

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

Methods of Individualisation of the Soul . by Arthur E. Powell . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Compiled on 30 November 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

These are quotes from Arthur E. Powell’s Theosophical compilations regarding the various methods through which a house pet can individualise. Theosophy states that animals have group-souls. All lions, for instance, share but one group-soul. (1)

But according to Theosophy, when an animal has a long association with a human being, it can acquire an individual Soul. This process is termed individualisation, or in more modern spelling, individualization

Here are the quotes from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, that describe the process of individualization …

“It was said in the preceding chapter that the effort, resulting from which individualisation, takes place, must be made from below, i.e.., by the animal. This effort may take place in one of three distinct ways, and so exercise a very far-eaching effect on the whole future life of the entity concerned.

“When an ego is formed, the three aspects of the Higher Triad, i.e.., Atma, Buddhi, and Manas, must all be called forth: the first connection, however may be made through any one of the three, as follows:

“[1] Between the lower mind and the higher
“[2] Between the astral body and Buddhi
“[3] Between the physical body and Atma

“The animal will thus individualise in the first case through intellect, in the second case through emotions, and in the third case through will. We will now briefly consider each of these three methods.

“(I) Individualisation through Intellect — If an animal is associated with a human being, who is not predominantly emotional, but whose chief activities are of a mental nature, then the nascent mental body of the animal will be stimulated by the close association, and the probabilities are that individualisation will take place through the mind, as the result of mental efforts made by the animal to understand his master.

“(II) Individualisation through Emotion — If, on the other hand, the master be an emotional man, full of strong affections, the probability is that the animal will develop chiefly through his astral body, and that the final breaking of the link with the group-soul will be due to some sudden outrush of intense, affection, which will reach the buddhic aspect of the floating Monad belonging to it, and will thus cause the formation of the ego.

“(III) Individualisation through Will — In yet a third case, if the master be a man of great spirituality, or of intensely strong will, while the animal will develop, great affection and admiration for him, it will yet be the will within the animal which is principally stimulated. This will show itself in the physical body by intense activity, and indomitable resolution to achieve whatever the creature may attempt, especially in the service of his master.

“We thus see that the character and type of the master will have a great influence on the destiny of the animal. The greater portion of the work is, of course, done without any direct volition on either side, simply by incessant and inevitable action due to the proximity of the two entities concerned. The astral and mental vibrations of the man are far stronger and more complex than those of the animal, and they are consequently exercising a never-ceasing pressure upon the latter….”

Animal Group Souls . by Arthur E. Powell . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Begun on 27 November 2013; published 13 December 2017

Dear Ones,

Here is a description of animal group souls from “The Causal Body and the Ego,”  by Arthur E. Powell. Theosophy holds that animals have group souls. For instance, all dogs, they feel, share but one group soul. Here is the quotation …

“Group–Souls, which exist in the mineral, vegetable, and animal kingdoms thus represent intermediate stages leading up to complete differentiation into separate human entities or units. Hence in the three kingdoms mentioned, we do not find one soul in a block of mineral, or a plant or an animal. Instead of this, we find one block of life – it we may use such a term – ensouling , a vast quantity of mineral substance, a large number of plants or trees, or a number of animals. Into the details of these we will enter later, confining ourselves for the moment to a consideration of the general function and purpose of the Group-Souls.

“The best physical analogy of a Group-Soul is perhaps the oriental one of water in a bucket. If a glassful of water be taken from the bucket, it represents, the soul—or portion of soul—of say , a single plant or animal. For the time being, the water in the glass is quite separate from that in the bucket, and, moreover, it takes the shape of the glass which contains it.

“So may a portion of a Group-Soul occupy and vivify a vegetable or animal form.

“An animal, during its life on the physical plane, and for some time after that in the astral world – has a soul, just as separate as a man’s; but when the animal comes to the end of its astral life, that soul does not reincarnate in a single body, but returns to the group-soul, which is a kind of reservoir of soul-matter.

“The death of the animal would thus, in our analogy, be represented by pouring water from the glass back into the bucket. Just as the water from the glass becomes thoroughly mixed and united with the water in the bucket, so does the portion of the soul from the particular animal become mixed and incorporated, with the total soul in the Group-Soul. And just as it would not be possible, to take again from the bucket another glassful consisting of the same molecules of water, so is it not possible for the same portion of the total soul in the Group Soul to inhabit another particular animal form.

“Continuing the analogy further, it is clear that we could fill many glasses with water from the bucket at the same time: equally is it possible for many animal forms to be ensouled and vivified by the same Group-Soul.

“Further, if we suppose that any given glassful of water becomes coloured with a distinctive hue of its own, then, when the water is poured back into the bucket , that colouring matter will be distributed throughout the whole of the water in the bucket, the colour of all the water in the bucket being thereby to some extent modified.

“If we consider the colouring matter to represent experiences or qualities acquired by a particular animal, then, when the portion of soul vivifying that animal returns to its parent Group-Soul, those experiences or qualities will become part of the general stock of the whole Group-Soul and be shared by every other part of it equally, though in a lesser degree than that in which the experience existed in the particular animal to whom it occurred; i.e., we may say that the experiences concentrated in a particular animal are spread, in a diluted form, over the whole Group-Soul to which the animal is attached.” (1)

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

1. The Dark Network versus Earth’s Grid of Light

Here is a thought: When my attention falls on something I would term a ‘dark’ thought or emotion, a ‘dark’ energy, what some people call the Dark Network for the third dimension and fourth dimension of Planet Earth. It looks like this …

 (Well, ok, it is really a photo of a reflection in a window at sunset.)

Since 3D and 4D include both Dark and Light, we can choose which we prefer …

  • Will we dwell on something that is Dark, and try to figure that out with our logical minds?
  • Or will we visualize the beauty and magnificence of New Earth, which is all bright and incredible?

In dark moments, it works for me to visualize that beautiful Grid of Light, and imagine that I am standing or sitting … Look at this; this is a natural stone bench. Watch …

And so, we can visualize ourselves firmly planted and anchored on Earth. And with our heads attached to the Incoming Light … a beautiful pranic column of Light … and our hearts fiery with the energy of New Earth … on fire with Love, the perfect deluge of love.

2. Cause and Effect versus the Now

Here is another thought: Why should I dwell on cause and effect, with its inevitable consequence of ‘a little bit better’ or ‘a little bit worse’ … a comparison of the past to the present; the present to the future?

When I can, instead, dwell on this moment Now. And imagine, in my heart, that this is a perfect moment, no matter how I approach this moment with my feeling body and my emotional body, I can still imagine that this feeling, and this emotion, and this experience … this visual experience that I am having right now … are the perfect one for me right now.

There is something to be said for the Now; it allows the moment to be perfect, instead of comparatively perfect, compared to a timeline.

3. The Nature of Our Human ‘Earth Chakras’

3. Here is another thought. I was talking about the Lower Quadrant … that is really starting around the bottom of the rib cage, and proceeding down to the lowest part of the trunk of the body, and includes chakras 1 through 3 in the old chakric system:

Image: “Chakras 1-7,” adapted by Alice B. Clagett, 18 November 2014, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: A person is seated cross-legged, hands on knees. There are variously colored symbols representing the 7 chakras along the spine, as follows: At the base of the spine: 7. The Base/Root Chakra (red symbol); and above that: 6. The Sacral Chakra (orange symbol); 5. The Solar Plexus Chakra (yellow symbol); 4. The Heart Chakra (green symbol); 3. The Throat Chakra (turquoise symbol); 2. The Third Eye (violet symbol); 1. The Crown Chakra (magenta symbol). The labels for chakras 5 through 7 are bracketed together; to the bracket is attached this label: ‘Earth Chakras’ of the Lower Quadrant of the ‘Body of Light’, approximately equivalent to the ‘Lower Triangle’ of yoga, the ‘Gut Brain’ of popular idiom, and the ‘Lower Mental Body’ of Theosophy … CREDITS: From “Location of the Different Chakras of the Body,” by Xxglennxx, from Wikipedia, public domain.

… and I was complaining, in a way, about how they pick up and transmit the unconscious thought cloud of the world, and it kind of ‘sticks’ to places in the lower wuadrant of the Light Body.

Image Markup: “Quadrants of the Body of Light,” self-portrait by Alice B. Clagett, 23 December 2017, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: The above image portrays a standing woman, facing forward and surrounded by a yellow oval. The oval is labeled: Body of Light. It is divided into four quadrants labeled Upper Quadrant, Right Quadrant, Left Quadrant, and Lower Quadrant. The Upper Quadrant of the Body of Light begins just below the neck, and includes the 5th or throat chakra and higher, to a foot or two above the head. The Lower Quadrant begins at the bottom of the rib cage, and includes the 3rd chakra or navel point, and lower, down to a foot or two below the feet. The Right Quadrant is in the area of the high and low heart chakra and the right side of the body, from the perspective of the person in the image (not from the perspective of the observer). The Left Quadrant is in the area of the high and low heart chakra and the left side of the body, from the perspective of the person in the image (not from the perspective of the observer). The transpersonal chakras have come ‘on board’ since 2012 as the Incoming Light transforms and enlarges our Bodies of Light. The 10th chakra is said to be located 2 1/2 to 3 feet above the head.

The transpersonal chakras have come ‘on board’ since 2012 as the Incoming Light transforms and enlarges our Bodies of Light. The 10th chakra is said to be located 2 1/2 to 3 feet above the head.

And so, every morning, when I get up, I notice all of the thoughts that have come ‘clouding’ through, and galumphing through my Lower Quadrant at night. And I have to consciously allow the restless momentum of those thoughts to find peace and quiet.

And every day, in the early morning, it is a new task, just as I wake up, to let those thoughts dissipate, and turn to quiet.

That is the nature of those chakras, chakras 5-7 … They have that energy of Earth in them … that mixture of dense energies coming up from the Earth. There is really no reason to complain about that, because that is the way those chakras are.

I got to thinking: Well, I expect those chakras to have the same sort of energy as the other chakras. But they are not like that. They are the chakras that ground us and anchor us to Earth. And they need to contain denser energy, less conscious energy. So, that was kind of a wonderful boost to my acceptance of things just as they are.

4. What Is That Light We Enter After We Pass On?

This is the last comment. It occurred to me, one day, that the Light that people see, after they pass on … the Light that they go towards, or they are drawn towards … might actually be the Light of their own Souls. Just a thought ..

You all, take care.

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

Dear Ones,

How about these two pictures … do you see similarities?
Hint: you have to imagine turning one picture on its side…

MERKABA

Image: Schematic of merkaba, by Patinkas … https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/9e/42/70/9e42700cc04780acddef348115fd9d50.jpg ..

–from Link: “Merkaba, Platonic Solids, and Sacred Geometry” … http://www.patinkas.co.uk/Merkaba_Feature_Article/merkaba_feature_article.html ..

With regard to the image of the merkaba, I am reminded of crop circles. I wonder if this image has to do with Light teleportation, the escape from one timeline to another, as in the case of disappearing and reappearing photons. More on this below.

MOTHERSHIP GIVING BIRTH

Image: Mothership Giving Birth, by Capstoned
… http://capstoned.deviantart.com/art/Mothership-Giving-Birth-98428437 ..

To me, the image of the mothership giving birth is like the notion of the incarnational aspects of the Eternal Soul. More on that below.

SOUL GROUPS’ AS OUR ETERNAL SOUL IN THE NOW: BEYOND TIME AND SPACE, AND INCLUDING ALL OUR INCARNATIONS SIMULTANEOUSLY

A further thought: It is possible that the concept we have of ‘Soul Groups’ is really an expression, from the reference point of our Awareness within causal reality, of the existence of the Soul in the eternal Now … beyond the time-space continuum … From that stance within the Now, the Soul would include … all at once … all its incarnations, all its dimensions, and all its timelines.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF CHANGED WORLDVIEW DUE TO CHANGED POINT OF AWARENESS: EARTHCENTRIC VERSUS HELIOCENTRIC POINTS OF VIEW

In the same way, for instance, the ancients viewed our Sun as revolving around our Earth because their point of Awareness was here on Earth. Had their point of Awareness been on the Sun, then they would have seen the greater truth of the Solar system’s motion.

In that case, the change in the point of Awareness would have been geographic; geography being the spatial aspect of the time-space continuum on which we are currently placing our Awareness.

ON THE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES’ CONCEPT OF REINCARNATION AS A REASON TO PUT OFF LIVING A VIRTUOUS LIFE

Some of the Christian churches have ruled against the concept of reincarnation, even though, as I understand it, this belief was widespread in Jesus’ day. Their point in this regard … and it is a good one, I feel … is that we might put off living a virtuous life if we believe in reincarnation. We might feel we could make up for any bad things we do in this lifetime, by living virtuously in a future lifetime.

THE CONCEPT OF REINCARNATION AS A LOGICAL CONSTRICTION ON THE NATURE OF REALITY

On the other hand, the notion of reincarnation is a way of viewing the multidimensional, multitemporal nature of the Eternal Soul from within the time-space continuum; from within the causal net in which we have placed our Awareness.

It’s this conservative point of Awareness that allows the logical mind to order incarnations in a temporal way. Thus we arrive at a method of subtraction and addition, known in Buddhist teachings, and in Theosophical lore, as karma.

THE NOTION OF TEMPORALLY AGGREGATIVE KARMA

According to this precept, we aggregate karma from lifetime to lifetime, along a string of pearls, it might be said, that represent one lifetime after another in the process of Soul learning and Soul evolution.

Good and Bad Karma

In this view, karma consists of both good and bad acts; good and bad karma thus accrue to the Soul’s chit with the Divine. This teaching is very like the Christian teaching of blessed action and sinful action, only strung out over various incarnations.

. . . . .

INCARNATION THEORY, FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF VARIOUS RELIGIONS

Buddhism. According to the Buddhist religion, each new incarnation offers a chance for karmic reparation.

Christianity. For the Christian, the current incarnation determines the entire outcome for the Soul. The future of the Soul lies in the heaven, purgatory or hell of the afterlife.

Hinduism. According to the Hindu religion, the Soul completes many cycles of rebirth into physical form, so that it may learn new things and work through its karma.

Theosophy. For the Theosophist, the current incarnation determines one’s afterlife experience (whether of heaven, or hell, or purgatory, or limbo) prior to the next incarnation, and the next attempt to learn a particular Soul lesson.

Ascension Lore. To the Ascensioneer, all incarnations are happening at once. From the perspective of the higher dimensions … those beyond right and wrong … we can transform every temporal and spatial expression of our Soul … to greater Light. In this greater Light, these expressions approach more closely the great Light of the Soul, which is but one of countless expressions of the Light of God or Source.

. . . . .

SOJOURN ON EARTH FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE ETERNAL SOUL

To get back to the concept of Soul Groups versus the Eternal Soul, As we shift from the perspective of Soul Groups to the perspective of the Eternal Soul, we would need to shift our perspective  from the time-space continuum on which we are currently placing our Awareness to that which is beyond time and space.

The Soul, Photons, and the Nature of the Universe as Light

This, as noted, is the perspective of the Soul. It also accounts for the behavior of photons, specifically their disappearing acts. As photons are Light, and the Universe is made of Light, we may imply that the fundament of the Universe (like the fundament of the Soul) is beyond time and space, in the Eternal Now.

Why Mysticism and Belief in God Crop Up in Many Human Cultures

This, then, is the source of the often encountered, albeit varied, experiences of mysticism among human cultures, and the spontaneous croppings up of the notion of God.

The Briefest of Sojourns: On Looking Forward to Our Return Home

In their hearts, and through their hearts, all human beings sense that there is that which exists in a land beyond our ken, and that, having encountered this place in which we now dwell for but the briefest of sojourns, we can look forward to the prospect of a welcome home.

Like the prodigal son, we shall return to our true nature, the point of Awareness of the Eternal Soul.

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

SUMMARY OF VIDEO 1

Dear Ones, This is Alice.

I am looking at the shadow of a tree on a dirt road. I can almost see a tree … I can imagine a tree moving in the wind. But then if I shift my focus around this way and up … [pans across road to tree itself] … I can see the tree itself, which, to my mind, is much more beautiful than the shadow of the tree.

It seems to me that the shadow of the tree that I just saw is a lot like my mind. It is as if my heart is the Light that lights the shadow of my mind. Like the shadow of the tree on the road, the shadow of my mind is moving around  I see it as what is true, but the true thing is my heart, just like the true thing here is this beautiful tree.

Here is to your heart, from mine. I am wishing you a very happy day. Love you all.

VIDEO 2 BY ALICE
Filmed on 12 August 2013; published on 4 March 2018

SUMMARY OF VIDEO 2

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am here in Colorado. This is the monsoon season. Every afternoon the sky gets thunderclouds and lightning and thunder and rain happen … yesterday even a little hail came down.

It is getting on towards afternoon. The wind is coming up. I was watching the shadow of the tree and then the leaves of the tree as the wind comes along. You could see the beautiful green leaves flickering, and you could imagine how the clouds are sailing across the sky because of the wind. And up in the righthand corner of the video you can see a grey thundercloud coming along. It is likely to rain pretty soon. I am not prepared; I am out on the trail; but do not worry about that.

I have a thing or two to say to you about the shadow of the tree and the tree leaves: Colorado, wow! Those tree leaves and the shadow of the leaves are kind of like the mental body of humans. The shadow of the leaves reflects the beauty of the tree that is our total self, but it is a pale reflection. The mind is not quite reality. And yet, when we get into our left brain, we take it so seriously!

When we get into our right brain we get a little more intuitive, and we can sense the ‘whole’ thing. It is not so easy to do!

Here is another thing about the shadow and the tree: It is about the body and the eternal Soul. We think this body [pats top of chest] is very solid; it is ‘us’. But when I think of it with my intuition … with the right side of my brain … it is like the body is the shadow of the tree. It is like the tree is the bright and beautiful, eternal Soul … the living thing.

That is what I learned from nature today. I really have to move along before this thundershower takes over. You all take care. Love you a lot. Bye.

[Shows field gate with a sign: “Road closed to motorized travel.”]

This is a codicil to the story of the shadow and the tree. Here I am, back at the beginning of the trail. If you look up, over the ridge, there are some monsoon storm clouds all along that ridge there … [Pans to ridge and dark storm clouds] … I finally made it back. There never was a sight more welcome than my tiny little car. Halleluia! The story has a good ending.

[End of the Second Video]

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

Timelines and Dimensions 3 . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

This is the last in a three-part video series on timelines and dimensions. An edited Summary follows the video. After that are the photos that are at the end of the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I just did two long videos on the very interesting time travel movie “Dimensions,” 2011, starring Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Camilla Rutherford, Patrick Godfrey … http://dimensionsthemovie.com/ … available, among other places, on Amazon.com. And I forgot to mention the main thing I had in mind! And so here goes …

In this movie “Dimensions” the teacher, the professor, at the very beginning of the story has the children do an exercise where they put on cardboard masks with little slits in them for the eyes. These are a little like Inuit snow goggles …

inuit_snow_goggles

Image: “Inuit goggles made from caribou antler with caribou sinew for a strap,” Julian Idrbo from Winnipeg, Canada, in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_goggles#/media/File:Inuit_snow_goggles.jpg … CC BY-SA 2.0 ..

He has them walk straight forward and say what they see. They are in a garden, on a lawn, and all they see is a little green. They see just in one direction, as they are just walking in one direction.

The professor describes this as the first dimension … You can only see, in a straight line, one thing. Then he turns them around … They do a pirouette. And he says: What do you see? They say: Lots of different things. They see all different kinds of colors, because they are able to experience both length and breadth … the x- and the y- axis we see on two-dimensional charts. That is the second dimension, he explains.

Then he takes the mask off of them and says: Now what do you see? They all start dancing together, and they say: We see EVERYthing!

But they don’t. What they see is the third dimension, in which things have length, breadth and height. So they appear to be ‘solid’. There’s an appearance of physical reality. It is this dimension that we take for true right now, while we experience ourselves as being in ‘physical form’.

This third dimension is as lacking in information as the first dimension, from the perspective of the higher dimensions. You could imagine that you have on right now this same mask that is shown in that movie … a mask with tiny little eye slits … where you can see just a little green, from the trees. You do not know that they are trees, though. You just see the green.

That is like what we are seeing right now. It seems so to those of our Ascension Team who are observing us from the higher dimensions.

So we are caught here now, in an untrue notion of physicality, which seems true to us because the instruments of our Soul that we know how to use right now reveal only that physicality.

Our celestial Ascension team … which exists in various higher dimensions, so as to step down our understanding of the user manual of our Soul to us here in physical form … knows about all the other instruments in the panel of our Soul field.

If we ask, we shall receive. If we ask for help, we will receive it. We will get just the right information. But it takes imagination to know what questions to ask.

We have to align with the Divine will and heart and mind in order to even come up with the questions to ask our Ascension team.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Terms for Darkness That Is Clearing from Our Bodies of Light

In past I have used various terms for the ‘stuff’ that is going to be transformed during the Awakening: karmic miasmic distortions, morphogenetic field distortions, samskaras, ‘lost children of the Soul’, traumatic repressed memories from this and prior incarnations.

This applies even more to the lightworker than to other people, because of the many incarnations that the lightworker must clear through.

Another way to think of this is that we have a magnificent, gigantic body of Light, and we also have inclusions of Darkness … something like chicken pox on fair skin. Even physical disease is an aspect of these inclusions of Darkness. Nevertheless, these inclusions can be resolved, all in an instant, through love.

Other ways of seeing these inclusions of Darkness: A relative void, a lack of love; clair-heard as dissonant chatter; not a unity field; not harmonic; a slight disharmonic with the cosmic Om or the cosmic chants, the Divine sound of the Universe. Something slightly off-key. An overlay of irregular light or lack of unity or inclusions of void or Darkness or lack of love in the Soul field, which otherwise is perfect Light.

Old Lightworker Syndrome: On LIghtworkers ‘Acting Out’ While Sleeping

My clair experiences of the astral bodies of other lightworkers going out of body while they were physically sleeping, and ‘acting out’. repressed negative emotions such as annoyance or anger or fear as desire to injure people that they love with disease. This is true for natal families and also for well-bonded groups of non-natal nature.

By ‘acting out’ while sleeping, I mean that the sleeping astral form repetitive utters curses or has dreams of violence toward loved ones. Over time, these maleficent emotions will have an effect on the astral bodies, and eventually the physical bodies of their loved ones. Thus it is important for the emotional and physical well-being of every sort of group that transformative work be done on the negative emotions of the members.

Thus ‘inclusions’ of hatred, fear, vengeance, greed, pride, sloth … the ‘cardinal sins’ … may be repressed in very spiritual people, and in other people too, and then taken into ‘acting out’ in the astral realm as the mental mind sleeps and as the astral body ‘leaps forth’ and expresses itself as we sleep. This is one manifestation of what I term ‘Old Lightworker Syndrome’.

Veil of Forgetfulness

True, we volunteered for the Duality experiment. When we ‘descended’ into physical form, what is termed the veil of forgetfulness separated our Higher Mental Body from our Lower Mental Body. In the Higher Mental Body are those thought forms that are conscious. In the Lower Mental Body are those thought forms that are subconscious … our repressed thought forms. It is the impassable astral bridge of the partly closed human heart chakra that creates the veil of forgetfulness. In this way the Duality play takes place … as an interplay between the conscious Awareness and the repressed Awareness of every human being.

Disclosure

Our Souls understand that we needed to do this in order to create this reality. However, now, as the Awakening takes place, the veil is being dissolved, so that the subconscious thought forms stored in our Lower Mental Bodies are rising to our conscious Awareness.

This is the process some term ‘Disclosure’. Let us be gentle with each other as the process of disclosure unfolds … bearing in mind that our own Soul secrets are being disclosed to our friends and family, just as theirs are being disclosed to us.

As the Light comes in, the karmic miasmic distortions are being stirred up. This may be what causes the increased volume and negativity of the astral stories circulating in the noosphere, especially during Solar Events. Keeping in mind that, daunting as the disclosures may be, the process is one of resolution and clearing.

Are Demons Antimatter? Or Maybe, Cosmic Rays?

I have thoughts on what are traditionally known as ‘demons’ … might they be antimatter? Matter is made of love and Light, is it not? So, what could negative emotions such as hatred be but antimatter?  … whether they are from the demon realm or whatever.

Or might demons be cosmic rays, which can injure our DNA during Solar Minimums, or at high altitude? What injures our DNA might be considered a form of hatred, from the human perspective.

How to rid oneself of hatred? I feel that concentrating on the physical heart is an effective technique … even if you are getting a lot of ‘stuff’ coming in from the ‘Hollywood’ mental filter and the ‘Double Oh Seven’ mental filter … and then there is the Patriarchal Domination mental filter … there are lots of things happening in the world today that are hard to bear, for the person whose heart is open. And so hearing those things, whether on the astral or the physical plane, tends to close our hearts.

So the thing to do is just to relax the heart, and open the heart. Keep the muscles in the chest open. In this way we can send the ‘antimatter’ back to God through the heart; or if it is a question of cosmic rays, through feeling the heart our DNA can be repaired.

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 have a new technique to impart to you today, that had some very unexpected and very nice results.

I have been having a problem when I go to church; and that is that, all of a sudden, I am so happy to be there, that I start with the astral chatter. And I have a hard time stopping. I am trying very hard to stop, but I cannot. The people in the church do not like that at all; I get all kinds of negative comments about talking. So I try harder; and the harder I try, the harder it is to be quiet in church.

So there I was in church again today, and I thought: I will try something new! (And I have tried this before, but not with these kinds of results.) I think the atmosphere in church is very helpful to this particular technique. It went like this …

What Is the Soul?

I visualized my Soul all around me, permeating my physical body and the Awareness level of my existence. And I thought of my Soul, my Eternal Soul, and how I am only manifesting in the physical reality to learn lessons for my Soul. For me, my Soul is that primary essence of me.

Indian Sikh Philosophy: Yogi Bhajan’s Notion of the Soul

I remember one time, long ago, I was listening to a lecture by a teacher named Yogi Bhajan, who had an Indian Sikh philosophy. People asked him all kinds of questions, and he always seemed to know the answer; it was incredible. And one person said: What is a Soul like?

I am ‘all ears’ about theological issues; I love to hear the answers. He said (and I paraphrase): Well, a Soul is not insubstantial. It has substance. It weighs a small portion of a penny [like a tenth of a penny; something like that. This was many years ago].

And I said to myself: Wow! A Soul weighs something! A Soul has some weight in the physical reality! I do not know! Maybe it is gigantic … and it has this lack of density weight. That is kind of my feeling, that it is pretty big, you know? But other people say that it is very small. But I can tell you one thing that everybody would agree on, and that is that it is the essence of our being, that reflection of God.

Zen Text: The Woman at the Well … Soul as the Image of God

I read a Zen text one time; I was 16 years old at the time, and I was going on about the Zen koens, which were a very new concept to me … quite a mind boggler and eye opener too.

They told the story … I think it was in that text … of the woman at the well, who had been studying to know God, in the Zen way. And she was carrying her water bucket to the well at night. It must have been cold; she must have been living a very hard life in an attempt to avoid the distractions of civilization so that she could get to the essential process that her Soul really wanted to know … and that is, how to know the mystery of God.

As I recall, she let her water bucket down into the well, and as she started to pull it out, she could see, on the surface of the water, the moon. There was the moon, reflected in the water. And the moment she saw the moon reflected in the water, she had that ‘aha’ experience that they call enlightenment in Zen Buddhism. I thought about that koen for a very long time.

Soul as Essence of Our Being

In those days there were no explanations. There was just the thinking and the pondering and the wondering. [laughs] These days … today … I would say that what she saw in the water … the moon that she saw in the water was like our own, personal, Eternal Soul, which is a reflection of the greater reality of God, of Source.

We all have that essence. We do not think about it much, in Western civilization; but it is impossible to deny that we have an essence. You may quibble over the word ‘Soul’, but just for the sake of a general understanding of a term, let us use the word ‘Soul’ right now, ok?

May My Soul Speak for Me!

[Getting back to the church experience mentioned at the beginning of the video …] So I was in the church, getting ready to be upsetting people, and trying hard not to. Then, imagining my Soul, I said: May my Soul speak for me.

And then I let my mind be still. My mind was still. And then, after a short time, I heard someone talking; not inside me … not like my mental mind, but more true; speaking greater truth with regard to just about everything. People were talking to that which it was … whatever it was.

I could barely hear. And I tried not to hear, because my lower mental mind has a tendency to step into conversations and distort reality with the denseness of the third and fourth dimensions. I am not too sure what dimension the Lower Mental Body is in. But anyway, a lower understanding of truth is what is available to me, unless I allow my Soul to speak.

When my Soul speaks, many truths are revealed, that were before hidden, both from me and from the people that ask me questions. Very interesting! My Soul knows just about everything about all the people that ask. I do not know where it gets this information … things that I had no notion of.

So if you want to astound yourself, get in touch with your own Soul … and allow it to do the talking for you … and see if maybe that completely transforms your Earthly existence.

Until next time, God bless you all.

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
  • MEDITATION TO INTEGRATE THE EMOTIONAL BODY WITH THE MENTAL BODY, by Alice B.  Clagett
  • HEARTMATH’S QUICK COHERENCE TECHNIQUE

Dear Ones,

The video has story about being in the presence of Ram Dass and Krishna Das at the 2015 Spring Retreat in Maui recently. Piercing the Veil (one of them, anyway), contacting the Soul. Mental stories about the higher self.

Also, a heart-to-mind meditation inspired by HeartMath … for integration of mental energy with the heart …

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Well, I have a hot news flash here. I was at a session with Ram Dass yesterday. A lot of people were there. And something I did not know about him is, he has the ability to get people in touch with the energy of their Souls … which has been a goal of mine for a long time; I have been working with it.

So I was just sitting there, listening … He is very strong on energy of the heart, and unconditional love. I was sitting there in the energy of the room and in his energy, yesterday. And I had a kind of a breakthrough.

It was like my Soul … which I have been hearing for a while, and talking to, a little … It was as if the energy of my Soul … which is very fine; very refined energy … I kept having moments of going through the Veil … a very thin Veil of slight unconsciousness and jolting back again, during this talk by Ram Dass.

And then suddenly I blacked out completely … completely unconscious … for just a nanosecond; and I found myself in a different space, past the aura of my body, of my various body vehicles … and in a space where the very refined energy of my Soul was actually infiltrating through … I guess … a Veil? … and into the body vehicles. It was an incredible experience.

And so naturally I was thinking: Gosh, I hope this happens again soon. 

I guess that was two days ago. So then the next talk, the next day, was when I found out that Ram Dass has that ability to put people in touch with their Souls (which I did not know before).

So then today, there were Ram Dass and Krishna Das … both very big on unconditional love and devotion and chanting, and that kind of thing … They were both sitting up on the stage. And at first, there was a massive feeling of disorganization in the crown chakra, and a feeling of a heavy lid of energy on my crown chakra.

And it was very disconcerting to me. I was coming up with all these mental stories and propositions about why it was happening. I was that freaked out by it that I went outside and sat in one of the beautiful alcoves here, for a little while.

Finally I got my courage up again, and I went back in. But rather than sit on a chair, I sat on the floor, because I figured I would not be as much noticed there. So I was sitting … discretely … on the floor, hiding … [laughs] … and my mind was totally freaking out. It was coming up with all these stories about how dangerous it was to be there … as if it had taken my Soul as an antagonist, and was thinking that my Soul was trying to overcome it. It was far out, totally weird … It was almost as if my ego thought my Soul was another ego trying to vanquish it.

It was very weird. But I was guessing it had something to do with the earlier experience of greater self beyond ego and beyond personality, that I had felt previously.

So I came back, and I sat down, after the lecture, and I was meditating. And I noticed … because of the energy in that room, with Krishna Das and Ram Dass and others there who were so strong on the heart energy … that my heart was glowing beautifully.

And my mind was totally disorganized … with a lot of energy in my mind too … too much! And so, I was thinking about the Global Coherence Initiative and HeartMath … https://www.heartmath.org/gci/ … you know, that great grou of about 60,000 people that are bringing peace and love all over Earth?

And I was thinking how, in their description of the energy of the heart chakra, they explained that there is a connection between the heart and the mind, and that the energy of the heart has to take over and govern the energy of the mind. So I thought: Why not try that while I am meditating? …

So consciously I visualized the energy of my heart and my heartbeat. And I visualized the energy of my heart surging upwards into my brain with every heartbeat. So I could actually feel a pulsing rhythm of the heart’s energy, surging up into my head, and surging back down again, with the heartbeat.

So that was my practice. And after about 10 minutes, what I found was that there was an integration of the emotional body (aka the ‘astral body’, which is governed by the heart) and the mental body, that took place. My mind calmed down. My heart calmed down. And I felt unified … I felt like one for the first time in the last three days (since the start of this big event).

So, for what it is worth, this might be a good visualization to try out, the next time you are feeling very strong heart energy: Try that ‘surging upward’ … Try that connection of the heartbeat with the mental mind … And see if you find a sense of Unity, of harmony, of peace, in that.

See you!

MEDITATION TO INTEGRATE THE EMOTIONAL BODY WITH THE MENTAL BODY
by Alice B. Clagett
9 May 2015

Sit cross-legged on the floor; or else in a straight-backed chair, with feet firmly placed on the floor. Visualize the energy of your heart. Feel your heartbeat.

Next, visualize the energy of your heart surging upwards into your brain with every heartbeat. Feel the pulsing rhythm of the heart’s energy, surging up into your head, and surging back down again, with the heartbeat.

The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun . by William Blake . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 21 August 2014; revised on 18 August 2018

  • “THE GREAT RED DRAGON AND THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH SUN,” BY WILLIAM BLAKE [version 1]
  • RELEVANT BIBLICAL CITATION: “THE WOMAN AND THE DRAGON,” Revelation 12:1-6
  • “THE GREAT RED DRAGON AND THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH SUN” BY WILLIAM BLAKE [version 2]
  • SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS
  • DUALITY: WILL IT BE SERVICE TO SELF OR SERVICE TO OTHERS?

Dear Ones,

Here are two paintings representing “The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun.” Both are by William Blake. The relevant biblical quotation is cited. There is also a discussion of the topic of the paintings as it relates to the current state of the Ascension process …

“THE GREAT RED DRAGON AND THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH SUN,” BY WILLIAM BLAKE [version 1]

Image: “The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun,” by William Blake, created between 1805 and 1810, in Wikimedia Commons … https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/William_Blake_003.jpg … A golden, winged woman, about to give birth, is kneeling with arms defensively outstretched, looking up at a big, muscular, beige-colored dragon hovering menacingly in the air just over her head. The dragon has human legs and arms, ram’s horns, wings, and a tail; it is wearing a simple, spiked crown.

The dragon has human legs and arms, ram’s horns, wings, and a tail; it is wearing a simple, spiked crown.

So, hmm… I was wondering, was Blake saying that sexuality is demonic? Or what was this painting about? Then later I found out this is a depiction of a vision in Revelation Chapter 12:

RELEVANT BIBLICAL CITATION: “THE WOMAN AND THE DRAGON,” Revelation 12:1-6 KJV (public domain)

1 “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2 “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

 6 “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”

For my interpretation of this passage, see …

Blog: “End Times: Revelation Chapter 12 in an Ascension Context.” by Alice B. Clagett …  http://wp.me/p2Rkym-52X ..

“THE GREAT RED DRAGON AND THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH SUN” BY WILLIAM BLAKE [version 2]

Image: “The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun,” [another version] by William Blake, ca. 1803-1805, from Wikimedia Commons … https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/The_Great_Red_Dragon_and_the_Woman_Clothed_with_the_Sun.jpg … public domain.

SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS

The second rendition of this painting (above) is a feeling that is being replicated in the recent End Times Hollywood movies. The theme is that of the black magic ‘rape and slaughter of the innocents’.

DUALITY: WILL IT BE SERVICE TO SELF OR SERVICE TO OTHERS?

This is one extreme in the Service to Self – Service to Others continuum that represents the choices in the duality play of the third dimension. These are, in fact, the choices on the table today: Which will you choose?

  • Will it be service to self?
  • Or will it be service to others?

The many timeline choices being offered in each person’s hologram today represent chances to choose, from a personal point of view. By choosing the one or the other, you create your own Awareness timeline.

There are those today who are engaging in the ‘rape and slaughter of the innocents’ and other Satanic bylines. In this way, they are creating a service-to-self timeline for themselves.

There are others who pray for peace on Earth, and envision love and light; these are creating a service to others timeline for themselves.

THE ETERNAL SOUL AND SOURCE

The choices are our own, and no one else’s, as the only relationship each of us has is with Source. The truest aspect we own is the eternal Soul; this our Soul is but a glimmer, a pale reflection, the Original Light of Creation, and that Light came from a potentiating Dark Mother or matrix, the nurturing almost-thought ready to spill forth joyfully, playfully, the countless iterations of her desire for relational experience.

One such iteration is you, in all the winsome, handsome, desireful beauty of your eternal Soul. But for what, O Soul, do you truly long? Here is the answer of the great Sufi poet Kabir, as sung by Snatam Kaur …

Sunlight on Water . by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally published on 15 December 2013 

Dear Ones,

This is a video about sunlight on water, and some pictures of Malibu Creek State Park in late afternoon. There’s a Summary after the video.

The peaceful instrumental at the end of the video is “Cylinder 6” by Chris Zabriskie, CC BY 4.0 …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones,

I am at Malibu Creek State Park today. It is late afternoon. And here I am looking at the creek water flowing … I am not sure which creek. And I was just thinking about our physical form.

You know, some people say that our physical form is like those leaves in the water there; and they are just floating on the water there.

And some people say our lives are like the water that os floating down the stream.

But I think we are more like the reflection, there, of the sky. It is beautiful, huh? The reflection of the sky in the water. Even more beautiful than the leaves moving around, and the water moving around … The sunlight reflecting on the water is so beautiful!

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

The Black Magician . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 1 December 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

Sometimes spiritual adepts use black magic for the advancement of their religious organization, or to improve their standing among their peers. Personal results of this misuse of third eye-point energy are quaintly laid out below. Enough to give me the willies!

Here are excerpts from Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, along with my comments in blue font.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
THE BLACK MAGICIAN … excerpts from Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain. [Paragraphing and bracketed editorial comments are mine. –Alice]

“The most disastrous catastrophe which can occur to an ego [in this context, ‘ego’ corresponds to the popular notion of ‘Soul’. –Alice] is that in which the personality captures the part of the ego which is put down [extended down from the Soul to the world of matter], and actually causes it to break away. Such cases are exceedingly rare, but they have happened.

“This time the hand (c) instead of repelling the arm (b), and driving it gradually back into the body (a), by degrees absorbs the arm (b) and detaches it from the body (a) [The letters in parentheses refer to Diagram XXVI, below. The terms ‘body’, ‘arm’ and ‘hand’ refer to successively smaller portions of the Soul field that have dipped down into the material world. See diagram XXVI below. –Alice]

“Diagram XXVIIIC illustrates such a case….

“This could be accomplished only by determined persistence in deliberate evil, in short, by black magic. Continuing the analogy, this is equivalent to amputation at the shoulder, or to the loss by the ego of nearly all his available capital. Fortunately for him, he cannot lose everything, because the arm… and the hand… together are only a small proportion of the body…, and behind … is the great undeveloped portion of the ego,on the first and second mental sub-planes. Mercifully a man, however incredibly foolish or wicked, cannot completely wreck himself, for he cannot bring that higher part of the causal body into activity, until he has reached a level at which such evil is unthinkable.

“There are certain men, who deliberately set them selves in opposition to nature and, instead of working for unity, towards which the whole force of the universe is pressing, they debase every faculty they possess for purely selfish ends. They spend their lives striving for separateness, and for a long time they attain it : it is said that the sensation of being utterly alone in space is the most awful fate that can ever befall a man.

“This extraordinary development of selfishness is, of course, the characteristic of the black magician, and it is among their ranks only that men can be found who are in danger of this terrible fate. Many and loathsome as are their varieties, they may all be classed in one or other of two great divisions. Both classes use such occult arts as they possess for selfish purposes, but these purposes differ.

“In the commoner and less formidable type, the object pursued is the gratification of sensual desire of some sort: naturally, the result of such a life is to centre the man’s energy in his astral body.

“Having succeeded in killing out from himself every unselfish or affectionate feeling, every spark of higher impulse, nothing is left but a remorseless, ruthless monster of lust,who finds himself after death neither able nor desiring to rise above the lowest subdivisions, of the astral plane. The whole of such mind as he has is absolutely in the grip of desire, and, when the struggle takes place, the ego can recover none of it, and in consequence finds himself seriously weakened.

“For the time being he has cut himself off from the current of evolution, and so, until he can return to incarnation, he stands – or so it seems to him – outside that evolution, in the condition of avichi, the waveless. Even when he does return to incarnation, it cannot be among those whom he has known before, for he has not enough available capital left, to provide ensoulment for a mind and body at his previous level. He must now be content, therefore, to occupy vehicles of a far less evolved type, belonging to some earlier race. He has thus thrown himself far back in evolution, and must climb over again many rungs of the ladder.

“He will probably be born as a savage, but will most likely be a chief among them, as he will still have some intellect. It has been said that he may even throw himself so far back that he may be unable to find in the world, in its present condition, any type of human body low enough for the manifestation which he now requires, so that he may be incapacitated from taking any further part in the Scheme of evolution, and may therefore have … to wait, in a kind of condition of suspended animation, for the commencement of another.

“Meanwhile, the amputated personality, having broken the ‘silver thread that binds it to the Master’ (aka the ‘silver cord’), is, of course, no longer a permanent evolving entity, but remains full of vigorous and wholly evil life, entirely without remorse or responsibility. As it is destined to disintegrate amidst the unpleasant surroundings of the ‘eighth sphere’, it tries to maintain some sort of existence on the physical plane as long as possible. The sole means of prolonging its baneful existence is vampirism of some sort: when that fails, it has been known to seize upon any available body, driving out the lawful owner.

“The body chosen might very probably be that of a child, both because it might be expected to last longer, and because an ego, which had not yet really taken hold, could be more easily dispossessed.

“In spite of its frenzied efforts, its power seems soon to fail, and it is said there is no instance on record of its successfully stealing a second body, after its first theft is worn out. The creature is a demon of the most terrible type, a monster for whom there is no permanent place in the scheme of evolution to which we belong.

“Its natural tendency, therefore, is to drift out of this evolution and to be drawn into that astral cesspool known as the ‘eighth sphere’, because what passes into it stands outside the ring of our seven worlds, or globes, and cannot return, into their evolution. There, surrounded by loathsome relics of all the concentrated vileness of the ages that are past, burning ever with desire, yet without the possibility of satisfaction, this monstrosity slowly decays, its mental and causal matter being thus at last set free. Such matter will never rejoin the ego from which it has torn itself, but will be distributed among the other matter of the plane, to enter gradually into fresh combinations, and so be put to better uses. Such entities are, as already stated,… exceedingly rare: and, moreover, they have power to seize only those who have in their nature pronounced defects of a kindred type.”

“The other type of black magician, in outward appearance more respectable, is yet really even more dangerous, because more powerful. This is the man who, instead of giving himself up altogether to sensuality, sets before himself the goal of a more refined but not less unscrupulous selfishness. His object is the acquisition of occult power higher and wider, but still to be used always for his own gratification and advancement, to further his own ambition, or satisfy his own revenge.

“In order to gain this, he adopts the most rigid asceticism as regards mere fleshly desires, and starves out the grosser particles of his astral body, as perseveringly as does the pupil of the Great White Brotherhood. But, though it is only a less material kind of desire, with which he will allow his mind to become entangled, the centre of his energy is none the less entirely in his personality.

“When therefore, the separation, at the end of the astral life, takes place, the ego is unable to recover any of his investment. For this man the result is, therefore, much the same as in the former case, except that he will remain in touch with the personality much longer, and will to some extent share its experiences, so far as it is possible for an ego to share them.

“The fate of that personality, however, is very different. The comparatively tenuous, astral integument is not strong enough to hold it for any length of time on the astral plane, and yet it has entirely lost touch with the heaven-world, which should have been its habitat. For the whole effort of the man’s life has been to kill out such thoughts as naturally find their result at that level. His one endeavour has been to oppose natural evolution, to separate himself from the great whole, and to war against it ; and, as far as the personality is concerned, he has succeeded. It is cut off from the light and life of the solar system,: … all that is left to it is the sense of absolute isolation, of being alone in the universe.

“Thus, in this rare case, the lost personality practically shares the fate of the ego from which it is in process of detaching itself. But, in the case of the ego, such an experience is only temporary, although it may last for what we would call a very long time, and the end of it will be reincarnation, and a fresh opportunity.

“For the personality, however, the end is disintegration – the invariable end, of course, of that which has cut itself off from its source.

“In a case of this kind, involving the loss of an entire personality, the ego does no evil intentionally. He has let the personality get out of hand, and for that he is responsible. He is therefore responsible for weakness, rather than for direct evil. Whilst the ego has fallen back terribly, yet he does go on: probably not immediately, because he seems to be stunned at first.

“After such an experience, an ego would always be peculiar. He would be dissatisfied, and would have recollections of something higher and greater than now he could reach. It is a fearful condition, but still the ego has to take the karma of it, and realise that he has brought it upon himself.

“It is reported that there is another even more remote possibility. Just as the hand (c) may absorb the arm (b) and revolt against the body (a), setting up on its own account and breaking away altogether, it is (or at any rate has been in the past) just possible that the disease of separateness and selfishness may infect the body (a) also. even it is then absorbed into the monstrous growth of evil, and may be torn away from the undeveloped portion of the ego, so that hte causal body itself may be hardened and carried away, instead of only the personality. Diagram XXVIIID illustrates this case.

“This class of case would correspond, not to an amputation, but to an entire destruction of the body. Such an ego could not reincarnate in the human race; ego though it be, it would fall into the depths of animal life, and would need at least a whole Chain period to regain the status which it had lost. This, though theoretically possible, is practically scarcely conceivable. It will be noted, however, that even in this case the undeveloped part of the ego remains as the vehicle of the monad.” –the above text is from (1) pp 180-6
