Dear Ones.

Here is a great interview by Leath Tonino with Douglas Christie. This interview was published in The Sun Magazine, a favorite read of mine, as I have a notion that some of my writer and poet friends here in Los Angeles have their works published in it under pen names. Here is the interview …

Link: “The Sun Interview: The Desert Within: Douglas Christie on the Power of Silence and Contemplation,” by Leath Tonino, in The Sun, January 2022 … https://www.thesunmagazine.org/issues/553/the-desert-within ..

The topic of the interview is the Christian tradition of leading the contemplative life, beginning with the desert fathers and mothers … the ‘abbas’ and ‘ammas’ … of the early Christian tradition. Hallmarks of this way of life, to which I as a Lightworker and a Christian have for many years subscribed, are living (insofar as is practical, in the current days) a secluded life, fasting, meditation in every waking moment, sexual abstinence, and prayer.

Mudra for a Steady Heart
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
29 May 2020

I have for you today a two-handed mudra for a steady heart.

How to Do it. For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched.

For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. 

Image Markup: “Mudra for a Steady Heart: Finger Positions – Markup,” by Alice B. Clagett, 29 May 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … MARKUP: On the left: Right Hand. On the right: Left Hand … DESCRIPTION: Shows two different mudras, one for each hand: For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. This photo just shows the mudras, and not how they are placed.

MARKUP: On the left: Right Hand. On the right: Left Hand …

DESCRIPTION: Shows two different mudras, one for each hand: For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched.

For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. This photo just shows the mudras, and not how they are placed.

So you have these two diverse mudras, one for each hand. Hold the right hand in front of the left, both hands palm forward and outstretched fingers held upward, at heart level. The elbows are relaxed down by the sides. You are sitting very quietly in meditative pose.

On the right: Elbows relaxed down by the sides … DESCRIPTION: Hold the right hand in front of the left, both hands palm forward and outstretched fingers held upward, at heart level. The elbows are relaxed down by the sides. You are sitting very quietly in meditative pose. There are two different mudras (finger positions), one for each hand: For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched; this mudra is only partly visible in the photo. For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched (as can be seen in the photo).

What It Will Do for You. This is the Mudra for a Steady Heart. The fingers that are outstretched are like sticky barbs … like the plastic barbs they put on the edges of roofs to keep the pigeons from perching there. In this case the barbs are to ward off the thought forms of other people from the front funnel of your heart chakra. The ‘barbs’ prevent the thoughts of other people from waffling the front funnel of your heart chakra back and forth … That is the way of saying it in the world of Duality,

But if we say it in terms of Advaita, these fingers steady the inflow and outflow of vortical energy from the front stream of energy of the heart chakra.

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

Can Lightworkers Be Bound Down by the Dark? . channeled by Alice B. Clagett *

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Can Lightworkers, Pathfinders, Wayshowers, and Ascensioneers be bound down by the Dark? To me, this notion seems to be more like ‘conspiracy theory’ than truth. To me, it seems that during Solar Minimums the Dark is more apparent on Earth, and during Solar Maximums … such as that in which we now find ourselves … the Light is more apparent.

I envision Ascension as an upward spiral of energy. Each turn of the spiral has a low half and a higher half. It seems to me that the low half of each new spiral is higher than the high half of the preceding spiral.

So the notion that we are tied down, or limited in some way, as Lightworkers, Pathfinders, Wayshowers, and Ascensioneers, has to do with the relative Dark of the Solar Minimums. It is not that there is more Dark, as the Dark is ever decreasing. Rather, it is the notion that our eyes see more Dark during the Solar Minimums, and they see more Light during the Solar Maximums.

In other words, the notion that there is an eternal, fierce war between Dark and Light … the notion that Dark may win the upper hand one day, and Light the next … is the illusion of maya. It is the lila. It is the stance that so often provides dramatic fuel for today’s movies.

I recall a film that is right on target in that regard. It was a TV mini-series entitled “Good Omens” produced in the year 2019, and starring David Tennant, Michael Sheen, and Frances McDormand. That mini-series highlights the notion of a contest between an angel and a demon here on Earth. I think of this contest between the angel and the demon as a visualization of the popular notion that Light and Dark are warring in this realm of Duality.

From the stance of the third and fourth dimensions (which are the physical world and the astral or dreamtime realm). We see specks of Light that are galaxies and constellations, within vast reaches of Darkness.
As we stand here on physical Earth; and as we nightly traverse the dreamtime world of the astral realm … from this depth of density of energy, this well of Darkness in the third and fourth dimensions … it may well seem that Darkness is all around us, and that what little Light we see … in the Sun by day, and by night in the stars so far above our heads … is but the flip side of a meager coin dealt us by the Cosmos.

Yet the true reality is Light and love and joy and peace. How can this be?

The shadow play of Dark and Light, from the stance of fifth dimensional Awareness, is like flickering fireflies of Dark in a great universe of Light. For the multidimensional, multitemporal Lightworker it is almost as if the fifth dimension is the template of Light from which is cast the obverse of Dark that we view when we place our Awareness in the fourth and third dimensions.

There are so many dimensions in this Universe! The third dimension that we feel so surely beneath our feet, and the fourth dimension, where we wheel about in our dreams, are deeply distorted to the Dark. In dimensions higher than the fourth dimension, there is more and more Light, until finally, in the highest dimension, there is naught but Light.

Beyond that, I feel, there is yet another template, a template of longing to become Light. That template is neither Light nor Dark. No name can be put to it. That template always is, though the desire within it sometimes pours forth the Light of the Worlds, and sometimes withdraws, like a sigh or a smile, back into itself forever.

But how can it be ‘forever’ when time does not pass? How can we think of loss, where there is not one ‘thing’ to hang our hats on? What can we envision, that has not been envisioned? How can we know what the Unknown knows? Where can we be, when we are not? When we are not, who are we?

In Light, love and joy,
Alice B. Clagett

Three Advaita Meditations . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Excerpted and adapted on 2 April 2020 from a blog written on 30 January 2015

  • NIGHTTIME MEDITATION ON A CANDLE FLAME, Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
  • ‘I’M NOT THAT’ MEDITATION, Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
  • ADVANCED ADVAITA MEDITATION, Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

As they say on the path of Advaita (which means ‘not-two’ in Sanskrit), the true Self, which is pure consciousness, is the highest Reality, Brahman, also pure consciousness. The truth about the illusion of the world of Duality, about Tantra, is the knowing that there is no ‘two’. There is only Awareness. I am That. I am I. 

Here are three meditations to increase Awareness of Advaita …

NIGHTTIME MEDITATION ON A CANDLE FLAME

Image: “Candle Flame,” by Alice B. Clagett, 2 April 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0

For this meditation you will need a candle, matches, and something to snuff the candle with.
Sit in a dark room. Spine straight. Relax your body.
Light the candle, and place it in front of you, on a table or on the floor.
Inhale and exhale deeply three times.
Watch the candle flame for 1 minute.
Then snuff it out.
Sit in the Darkness, and watch the Darkness for 1 minute.
Then lIght the candle again, watch for a minute, snuff it, and sit in the the Dark another minute.
Continue a total of 5 times.
At the end of your meditation, before you get up,
Inhale and exhale deeply three times.

. . . . .

‘I’M NOT THAT’ MEDITATION
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
30 January 2015

Sit in a quiet place. Spine straight. Relax your body.
Inhale and exhale deeply three times.
Think of a word that describes who you are. Then say to yourself: I’m not that!
Think of another such word. Say, I’m not that!
And so on, till you’ve run out of thoughts about who you are.
Then just sit, with that empty mind.
At the end of your meditation, before you get up,
Inhale and exhale deeply three times.

. . . . .

ADVANCED ADVAITA MEDITATION
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
30 January 2015

Sit in a quiet place. Think of nothing …
Do this daily, until you can do it at ease.
Then carry this practice of the Quiet Mind into your daily life.

. . . . .

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

The Human Heart, Aligned with That of God, Unveils Great Mysteries . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 28 December 2019
Previously titled: A Thought for the New Year

  • THE HUMAN HEART, ALIGNED WITH THAT OF GOD, UNVEILS GREAT MYSTERIES

Dear Ones,

I found a note in my hand in my well-worn copy of the book “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali” and was inspired to write this message for my star kindred here on Earth. The occasion is New Years Day 2020 …

THE HUMAN HEART, ALIGNED WITH THAT OF GOD, UNVEILS GREAT MYSTERIES

It is the error of men to try to control the world … and the error of women to try to save it. In truth, there is no world beyond our sphere of influence … no world beyond us, against which we struggle in vain. Our realm of endeavor … our purpose of attaining human form … lies right within us.

May I master my wayward mind through contemplation of my heart, as Patanjali advises …

Citation: “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali,” translated with a commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, copyright 1953, 1981 by The Vedanta Society of Southern California … See page 187;  the chapter “III. Powers,” number 35, which states (to paraphrase) that it is through contemplation of the heart that we master our own minds.

May I learn to control, not the world … not the ways of power, nor the ephemeral billboard of worldly fame, nor the intricate Dark web of political intrigue … but rather to control myself. May seek to I save myself, through God’s grace.

May I humbly seek to align my heart with the Great Heart of God which, beating and pulsing through the pathways between the stars … those byways of the Angel Realm … informs and enlivens all beings everywhere … from the tiniest cosmic ray to the greatest star; from the humblest mineral form to the most sentient of beings; and in our earthly realm, from the poorest and most desperate of humankind to the popes and presidents of countries and of international conglomerates.

Who knows but what the well tuned heart might sing the song of God’s mighty Universe; and, taking Archangel Michael by the hand, traverse with him the farthest reaches of His great creation! So may each of us, I pray, walk with utmost reverence the great interstellar paths, and come to know, in the truest sense, that we humankind are children of the stars.

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

Charm to Convince Vegetarian Spiritual Adepts to Stop ‘Making You Better’ . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

    • “Charm to Convince Vegetarian Spiritual Adepts to Stop ‘Making You Better’,” Channeled by Alice B. Clagett, Soundtrack and Words

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

Here is a charm to convince a vegetarian spiritual adept to stop trying to ‘make you better’ while you are asleep. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I have a fix for a problem that Lightworkers may be having … a problem such as I, a Lightworker myself, am having right now. There are some groups of spiritual adepts that will attempt to manipulate the eighth chakra above the head by casting their thoughts into our eighth chakra when we are unawares … when we are not noticing it.

They do this for a very good reason: They want to evolve our Souls with their superior intellects and thoughts and presence there. The problem is that we do not want them to do it without our Awareness about it … without agreeing.

I myself will never agree to let anyone manipulate my eighth chakra … anyone at all, except for my Ascension team. That is their ballpark.

I have been at my wits’ end as to what to do, because when a spiritual adept who is a leader of a group decides to do this, why then by attempting to enter and mind control my eighth chakra above my head … say, while I am resting or napping … what he does is, he brings the karma of all the people that work with him … all of his students … with him, and places it in my head.

That means that, when I wake up, I have to do a lot of clearing for his group. I do not believe in grouping; I believe in advaita … in making one’s relationship with God Himself, and not with other groups on Earth … not with Earthly groups, no matter how good the group.

I feel it is ok to join groups, but it is not ok to glom our karmic reactions with theirs. You know what I mean? It is just a big bother. Say there are a hundred people in this person’s group, and with all good intentions, and without my free will permission, he decides to make me ‘better’ while I am asleep, and unaware.

I did not have an answer. I cannot convince them not to do it, because they think they are on the moral high ground. Today I finally came up with an answer; it is only for the Lightworkers, or other people who are aware of their eighth chakra … the space three to six inches above their head … and want to keep it clear.

The thing of it is this: Most spiritual adepts purify their diet. They are very strict vegetarians. They are very careful about what they eat. And so, you can get them to ungroup from you and go away, by sending your own Awareness up to your eighth chakra, and across to their eighth chakra, and say this … This is the charm! It goes like this …

Wouldn’t you really like to have a hamburger?   (x3)

That is it. That is the counterspell. It keeps them from making our higher intellects their kind of cottage cheese. The only caveat I have is this: Overusing it might cause a person to get overbearing with other people; so it might be best to use it sparingly.

I would only say it one to three times, and only if it is absolutely important; if you cannot talk to them in the intellectual realm about it, and get them to stop. Say it has become a habit; that would be when I would try it.

You know, many religions feel it is all right to eat hamburger. I myself do not like hamburger that much. I tend to stick to a vegetarian diet myself. So I understand that this charm is quite a temptation as far as diet is concerned. But it is a fix that works right away, because it is socially embarrassing for the head of a spiritual adept group, or for the people that are higher up in that group.

Now you know! To my fellow Lightworkers: I hope this helps! I hope this helps all of you to keep your eighth chakra clear.

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