Dear Ones,

REGULATED SYSTEMS AND CHAOTIC SYSTEMS

I just looked at a video about chaos and the butterfly effect (otherwise known as ‘sensitivity to initial conditions’) …

Video: “Chaos and Butterfly Effect: Sixty Symbols,” by Sixty Symbols, 25 July 2011 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WepOorvo2I4 ..

I liked the quote regarding the possible patterns of movement of a double pendulum that begins “If the number of things …” and ends “… it will do.”

To paraphrase the quote: The theory is that a system behaves regularly if its constraints are equal to the possible motions it can perform. Taking away some of the constraints creates a chaotic system. In other words, this taking away of constraints frees up a regulated system, so that it can become chaotic.

That is an important thought as regards Ascension. As we pass through the levels of the fourth dimension, the constraints of the old mental-emotional paradigm are dissolving. Left-brain constraints, logical thinking, time-space constraints, and cause-effect constraints are all dissolving. Naturally, chaos ensues. The fear and anxiety that so many of us have felt from time to time in the past few years are triggered by this intuitive understanding of change.

But chaos is not a bad thing. It is something, I feel, to greet with open arms, with a warm smile of welcome. Chaos is a necessary prerequisite to the New Life on New Earth.

CHILDHOOD STORY ABOUT SOYBEAN PLANTINGS IN THE SPRING

When I was a child, I lived in the country. In spring, after the snow melted, my uncle would plow the fields round about our house, turning under the stalks of old soybean plants from the previous harvest, and turning under the new grasses that were just beginning to green the fields. All that had to go, in order for them to plant the new crop.

Video: “1959 Allis-Chalmers D17 Plowing,” by whspioneer89, 20 May 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqtxfcTyGrg ..

And so it is with us. It has been a while since humanity has tilled the field. It has been war and strife, hatred and fear, anger and insecurity, violence and selfishness, for a long, long time. Spring is here! Let’s plant the new crop in joy, peace, and love.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park in Los Angeles

I am out here in the mountain wilderness, in the Los Angeles area, near Chatsworth. There is a whole lot of rocks and trees out here … a lot of coyotes … You can see the city over there. I guess, maybe, that is Chatsworth over there … but I am sitting here on the sandstone … I think it is sandstone … and I had a couple of thoughts for you …

Despair and the Presence of Angels

I was listening in on a conference call from Peggy Black … www.peggyblack.com … I think it was yesterday. And sometimes when I try to contact my Ascension guide and my guardian angel, it seems like they are there … like I can feel them there … and sometimes it does not. And that, when I cannot contact them in Los Angeles … in this dense atmosphere here … sometimes I feel a sort of a sense of despair, you know? Like they will never get through.

Peggy Black had something really funny to say … She said (and I paraphrase): When you try to call somebody on your cell phone, you’re pretty confident that, when you dial the number, there will be somebody on the other end, right?

And I said: Yeah …

And she said (and I paraphrase): And sometimes, we get a message that says that there’s no signal right now; the signal can’t come through.

And I said: Yeah? …

And she said (and I paraphrase): And when that happens, you don’t despair, do you?

And I had to say: Yes, that’s true …

She said (and I paraphrase): You know, that at some other time … or some other location … you’re going to get through, right? When the signal is stronger …

And so, I thought she had great wisdom in her words there. And so, ever since then, when I try and reach my guides, I realize they are going to get through. They are there, and they are going to get through, one of these times, and one of these places.

Calling on King Solomon as My Father in Another Lifetime

So here I was, on the mountain today, and doing my best to remember one of my Ascension guides, and that is King Solomon. And to remember the energy signature and the feeling, in my pranic column … like a joining or merging.

And I had heard earlier … just an intuition earlier … that King Solomon’s relationship to me, in a past lifetime, had been as if I were his daughter. And that is a wonderful feeling for me. It is very different from who I am, In a way, that kind of energy completes me, you know?

Reputation of Los Angeles for Distortions of Energy

I was sitting high up, on the rocks behind me. It was near the end of the day. And as I started to walk down, I began to feel the feeling of King Solomon … which is rare, here in Los Angeles; it is just so very dense …

I am remembering some words that Sandra Walter … http://www.sandrawalter.com/ … said on her conference call yesterday. She said something like: It’s wonderful that you’re in service there in Los Angeles.

She is in Mount Shasta, right? She said (and I paraphrase): Los Angeles is known for its distortions of energy. And I feel certain that quite a number of Lightworkers would agree with her!

On Feeling Our Ascension Guides and the Angels, Rather Than Hearing Them Speak Words to Us

So, bearing that in mind, I went high up on the mountain today, to see if I could get through to King Solomon, or the guardian angel, or anybody … [laughs] … So I was sitting there, and I got a very peaceful feeling … a feeling that I was joined by angelic forces. I was blessed with the presence of King Solomon …

Although I did not hear any words. And I did not feel too bad about it, because I had heard Peggy Black say that she has been contacting her guides, and her celestial team, for all these years. And she has never actually heard any words or seen anything … She has always felt their presence.

When I felt them, I thought: That’s fine … You know? … I am complete in this, when I felt them.

Alice’s Vision: On  Tuning the Radio to the FM Symphony Music

I started back down the mountain. I was just idly walking, without much of anything in my mind. And it just came to me, all of a sudden, this notion: What do you want to hear on the radio? Do you want to hear AM or FM?

And so I said: FM!

And then I heard: So! Would you like the talk channel, or would you like the symphony channel?

And I said: Symphony! [laughs]

That is all I have for you today! May your life be a song, until next we meet! In love and light … [waves goodbye]

Memory of the Moment of Passing of My Father’s Father . a vision by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 18 January 2018; revised on 14 September 2018, on 7 February 2019, and on 17 May 2020

  • INTRODUCTION
  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • My Grandfather or Myself in a Just Prior Incarnation?

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This video is about a vision I had of the moment of passing of my father’s father from Earth.

The below incarnational story I classify as maybe just a vision, or possibly a vision of a prior incarnation. It was an extremely vivid vision. In my mind I linked it with a vision I had while doing kundalini yoga very early one morning many years ago. In that first vision I saw a blue-eyed, lean farmer getting down off a tractor. He was full of life; he had a spry walk and a mischievous gleam in his eye; and he was right good looking. He was no one I had met. But at the moment I looked into his eyes, I had the shocking recognition that this man was me. It was my first empathic experience with someone not of my gender in this lifetime. Since that day, I have had a better understanding of men … almost as if I might be that farmer one minute, and myself the next.

My father’s father had passed on some while before I was born, and I have always wished I had a chance to know him. From the start, I somehow felt that farmer might have been my grandfather; and I wondered whether, by some twist of fate, I might have been my grandfather in my second to last prior lifetime. Then later I had this vision of the moment of my grandfather’s passing, which, in a way, fulfilled my wish that I might have met him. The vividness of this vision once more made me wonder whether I had, after all, been my grandfather in my last, but one, prior lifetime.

In the second vision, one of my grandfather’s last sad thoughts was that he would never see his beloved wife again. It was, to me, heart-rending to hear his farewell thoughts of her. Were I to have been he, then that might account for the closeness I felt, as a child, with my grandmother, who lived only half a mile from my family home.

Too, it might account for the fact I was named after her, and that I was inclined, from birth, to spiritual devotion, as were she and my grandfather, though the other members of my natal family were more inclined towards the practical matters of life in the world. It might also account for her gift of her engagement ring, given her by my grandfather, to me on my 16th birthday.

The vision I had, which puts the place of my grandfather’s death at the entrance from Ritchie-Marlboro Road, Upper Marlboro, Maryland, to his family’s farm Ingleside …

Link: “Ingleside: My Grandmother Clagett’s Place,” a story by Alice B. Clagett, published on 7 December 2014; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-4TC ..

… differs in location from the place and manner of passing recorded in our family’s oral historical tradition.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

. . . . .

My Grandfather or Myself in a Just Prior Incarnation?

This morning I woke up again with another unusual astral experience or vision. I saw a scene where someone a good deal older than I (that is to say, from an earlier time, historically) … it would have been, not in the last generation, but in the one before it, because of the way he spoke … just at the moment of sudden death, and needing to stay on Earth and care for his family, was just finding himself in the position of not being able to stay here.

I realized this was my father’s father Roy D. Clagett, whose wife was my deeply cherished grandmother Alice Delores Clagett. He was the grandfather I had always longed to meet, but had not had the opportunity to meet, as he had passed on before I was born.

It was as if the Soul wounding of that gentleman were clearing. And almost as if I were that gentleman, clearing that. I could hear all his thoughts as he passed on. And I saw a good deal of the details around that passing on.

I have to say, I was very impressed with him. Never have I met him, but he had a way of thinking: He was thinking of God all the time. And he would use God’s name in his thoughts, just as part of his gentle way of thinking.

I am blessed to have had a chance to encounter my grandfather, in a moment that was supremely important to him in his life … a moment of crisis, of change … and soon to be Soul renewal, I am sure, at that point …

And right now I would like to say a prayer, as the Sun sets on another beautiful day: A prayer for those who have passed on, that they may find rest, and peace, and that they may know God.

I pray for all the dearly departed, especially those that have been forgotten now, who may have passed a long time ago, especially through sudden death, or catastrophic situations for which the Soul has no chance to plan in advance, and who might be lingering here on Earth still. I pray that they may find rest, and peace, and that they may know God.

And I pray too, that those who have lost their loved ones through accident, sudden illness or injury, or through any kind of catastrophe, should have a chance to recover from their grief, and to live fulfilling lives. Happy lives. And that they may be made whole again, in the wisdom and knowledge of God.

. . . . .

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

Colic . a story by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is a story about my very first days on Earth in this incarnation, and how love found me then. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars. And I have a story for you from when I was only just about a month old …

When I was born, and for about the first 6 months of my life, I had a terrible case of colic. I cried all the time. It hurt so much! And finally my mom, who was worn out from birthing her first-born child, asked her younger sister to come take care of me for a while, over at my grandmother’s house … her mother’s house.

And so there I was, with my aunt. And my feeling was, at the age of one month, it hurt so much, I just didn’t want to go on living. I just wanted to leave that place … that third-dimensional place.

And one night, she was rocking me to sleep, and she said …

I love you more than anything, you know?

And the look on her face made me say to myself …

All right then, I’ll just hang in there for a while.

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

Reuniting Soul Fragments . stories by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 22 April 2014; revised and republished on 5 January 2018

  • A GOOD TIME TO CALL IN OUR SOUL FRAGMENTS
  • ALICE’S STORY ABOUT HER GRANDMOTHER (HER FATHER’S MOTHER)

Image: Cover of the book “The Plains of Passage: Earth’s Children,” by Jean M. Auel … http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/earthschildren/images/6/6d/Plains_of_Passage.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130614141745 ..

Dear Ones,

A GOOD TIME TO CALL IN OUR SOUL FRAGMENTS

I have been thinking, this is a good time to be calling in our Soul fragments so that they can reunite themselves with us. After all, they are just waiting for a chance to find their way back to us, no matter where they are right now. After all, I am thinking, unity consciousness begins at home, right here in my own physical body! …

I was put in mind of this passage from Jean Auel’s “Plains of Passage” …

Link: “The Plains of Passage: Earth’s Children, Book Four,” by Jean M. Auel …  https://books.google.com/books?id=08qPf0Y3zeYC&pg=PA116&dq=%22It+wouldn%27t+be+easy+to+find+someone+else+to+love%22&hl=en&newbks=1&newbks_redir=0&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiOmaye1M7oAhUD7qwKHQW2BIQQ6AEwAHoECAAQAg#v=onepage&q=%22It%20wouldn’t%20be%20easy%20to%20find%20someone%20else%20to%20love%22&f=false … from the paragraph beginning “‘It wouldn’t be …'” through the first two lines on the next page, ending “… loved ones are.'”

In the passage, Ayla and Jondalar ruminate about how, when we love people, it feels like we exchange pieces of our Spirit with pieces of theirs. Then when someone we love passes on, this might account for the hurt we feel …

Maybe they take a piece of our Spirit with them, on to the afterlife … to the fourth dimension.

Then Ayla speculates that when a person is very old, many of their friends may have passed on, taking the parts of the person’s Spirit with them. So many parts of them are with their friends in the afterlife, she feels, that they may wish to go be with their friends there.

ALICE’S STORY ABOUT HER GRANDMOTHER (HER FATHER’S MOTHER)

I was put in mind of my father’s mother, my very good friend and grandmother, who, when I was a little girl, used to say: All of my friends are gone … Everyone I ever knew has passed on.

I remember the look on her face when she said that; a faraway look, as if she were looking into a window, through which only she could see. As if she saw her friends having tea, or maybe plowing a field, there on the other side.

I was filled with longing to keep her there there with me … guardian angels all around us …, lilac blooming by the porch beneath her bedroom window. And with a certain knowledge that, in her longing, she might soon be gone from my life forever.

And so it came to be.

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

Karma: Putative Sex Trafficking by Spiritual Leaders . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 31 December 2017

Dear Ones,

I figure, a man who is revered as a spiritual leader in this lifetime, and who traffics in human sex slaves … whether they be felons or prostitutes or runaway children … will likely be reborn as a sex slave who is a felon or sex worker or runaway child.

So then, by hook or by crook … by karma or through the much more felicitous path of dharma … it all works out, and the Soul learns its lessons.

Then, by extension, a spiritual man who has a runaway boy as a sex slave, may be having sex with a spiritual man who did the same, and incarnated as the runaway boy.

Our Star Brothers, Cain and Abel, and Palestine
A Story by Alice B. Clagett
7 July 2014

I have a story for you, about the Middle East, and about the area around Palestine, where there has been so much conflict all through the ages. But I would like to start from an unconventional place.

Some say 10,000 years ago; others say 150,000 years ago … that is quite a difference! … but I will say:  A long time ago, we all came from the Stars.

And in our home in the Stars, we were all brothers and sisters together, sharing universal love, and Christ consciousness. Little did we know, what we are coming into on Earth.

Then we came down to Earth, in the area of the Middle East and Northern Africa. And there, after a while, we found things to be quite different from our home in the Stars.

We were no longer brother and sister still. We were families divided, nations divided, brothers divided one against the other. And so came about the story of Cain and Abel … the two brothers who just didn’t get along.

That story of Cain and Abel has been played out, and performed, in the Palestine area for all these centuries. It is the burden of Earth hidden from her birthright.

And the time has come for all us humans … all us human beings on Earth … to remember that we are brothers and sisters together. That we all share Earth together, and all her resources are for everyone.

And the time will come, after that, when Palestine is free to be in peace. And all that area around there will be peaceful. I can’t wait for that day!

Beyond that will come the time when we are reunited with our brothers and sisters of the stars, so that we may become, once more, one galactic family. So that we may once more remember we are one with the All.

Peace to Palestine, today and always. Peace to all her children. And to the children of Earth. And to the children of the Stars. That will be us too, you know? …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I have a little story for you.

Here we have the grasses growing gently. They’ll be getting taller and taller as the winter goes on. Turning into the golden stalks of California oats.

And after a while, those stalks will grow heavy with seeds. And the seeds will ripen. And droop down towards the Earth. And fall down amongst the leaves.

And then, at nightfall, the field mice and gophers will come around and they’ll start eating the seeds of the oats. And carrying them down to their burrows to store.

And because there will be so many of them, some of the seeds will stay right here on the Earth, and be covered up by the little leaves of the oak tree up above. And be sheltered from the heat of the summer. And will survive until this time next year rolls around.

And then the rains will come. And the seeds will send down long, white tendrils and roots, deep into Mother Earth.

And up above: Green shoots of courage, standing up straight, waving, in the mild breeze, to the golden sunlight from above. And as time goes on, we’ll hear another roundelay, in the song of this great Mother Earth.

Dear Ones,

This video is about Trinity Episcopal Church in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and about the founder of the church, Thomas Claggett, who was the first bishop ordained in the United States.

Also: how church grounds can provide sanctuary for the spirit. And a little about my family. There’s a Summary after the video …

As I recall, Thomas Claggett (1), who founded Trinity Episcopal Church in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was a distant relative of ours …

My mom served on the Altar Guild at this Trinity Church. I always admired her skill at flower arranging. She taught me how, too.

Some of my relatives on my mom’s side of the family are buried here …

I find there is something special about church grounds … In medieval times, churches offered ‘sanctuary’ from pursuit by enemy forces.

But ‘sanctuary’ comes in many forms. Church grounds also offer protection for the spirit, sustenance for the Soul, though no words be spoken.

Dear Ones,

Here is Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem “If,” and a story about my Latin teacher …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I had a poem to read for you, called “If–“, by Rudyard Kipling. And I had a quick story to tell you about it before I speak the poem …

Alice’s High School Story

When I was in high school, I was in a Latin class, and the teacher there used to make us memorize a portion of this poem. And when things got rough in class, she would take her ruler, and she would wave it in the air, and she would recite part of the poem “If–“, by Rudyard Kipling. [laughs]

She was a pretty cool lady. She taught me a lot of Latin. And right before she was going on a trip to Italy, she taught us all Italian for a couple of weeks, just to get ready. [laughs] We didn’t learn much Italian, but we learned a lot of Latin.

And with that in mind, here’s the poem:

“IF–“
by Rudyard Kipling … public domain (1)

“If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

“If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

“If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

“If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!”

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Alice’s Memories of ‘Concord’ Farm

I am over here on the land where my mom and her sister and brother grew up, I am not really supposed to be here. I am just kind of kibitzing around because the gate was open. It belongs to a historical trust now, I think.

And over here [pans to the right of the road] I see they have torn down the barn that was there, that was in very bad repair. And I think this little building here, that you see, is the place where they used to strip the tobacco. You could keep a small building warm in the wintertime, and a lot of the stripping took place then.

Stripping was to make the tobacco ready to sell. The stalks of tobacco are turned upside down and hung on tobacco sticks across multi-level beams in the barns to cure. And then the leaves need to be stripped off before it is sold.

And over here [pans to the end of the driveway] … that was the family home. On the left was a kitchen area, which was detached from the house because of the possibility of fires. A few times over the centuries that this house was in existence, the kitchen area would burn down …

As you can see, flurries of snow are falling right now. I am going to go up a little bit closer, and see how soon I am going to get kicked out [chuckles] …

Well, I succeeded in getting up to the circular driveway in front of the house. I am sure I will not be able to go in, but it is nice to be pretending that I am visiting with family, and to remember the old days when we used to walk up those stairs and explore the attic over the white part of the building, which is where our missionary great-aunt’s (or was it our great-great aunt’s) belongings were stored after she passed away in China.

Alice’s Story about the Children’s Park Across the Road

[Moves to scene across the street] So this was the property I told you about. It used to be my mom’s property, after my grandfather passed away. And it now belongs to Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation, and has been turned into a park. It is just a little slice of property.

And behind me here you will see where they made a ballpark. And that ballpark is much used, and it is great, actually, that so many children get to take advantage of it. And I will show you the other side of the park, too …

[Moves to scene on the other side of the parking lot] Over here, where there used to be a tenant farmer house, they have built a beautiful park for young children to play in. It is just incredible. There is the entrance … there are places to play … It is like a little wonderland. It is very cool.

[Moves to ballpark area] So here is one ballpark, I see. There are just a few stadium benches … Maybe little league? … And then, far off over there, there is a beautiful picnic area, shaded, for the summertime.

And then, if you come around the field this way [pans left] … I bet that is a soccer field, do you not you think? And over here [pans left] … there is the big ball field, with a lot of stadium benches … and maybe that is a football goal over there? What do I know about this stuff? One might be baseball, and one might be football.

So, from what used to be just a field of tobacco or beans or corn, now there is this wonderful facility for all kinds of young children to enjoy. I think it is great, really.

But I really miss the land …

Thoughts About Nature and Sunlight

It is a brisk 30 degrees outside, so I got into the car, where the beautiful Sun is shining down and warming up the microcosm here. And it is kind of a relief not to have the snow flurries and the wind blowing. [laughs]

And I just have a quick thought for you about how we live our lives, and how we might live our lives.

There is something to be said for leaving nature, insofar as possible, as it is, and not improving on it. And living our lives in harmony with the forces of nature … with nature spirits, with the devas, and with the beautiful light that is ours, free, from the Sun.

You know, the light that comes from a computer screen, or a handheld, or a cell phone, is a very narrow spectrum of light. It does not nourish the spirit. It does not sustain the opening of our DNA.

If we look up from a computer screen, and look out, into the natural world, we see the vastness and grandeur and beauty of what is really here on Earth. You know?

Not a virtual reality, but the true reality of Earth. And so that os what I am suggesting today … to think of ways that we can live our personal lives in harmony with the beauty and grandeur, and life-sustaining, spirit-uplifting energy of the natural world. [waves goodbye]

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

Is Celestial Teamwork Risky? . a story by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 5 March 2013

Image: Young girl without a helmet, riding a 2-wheel bike …  http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/photo/young-girl-riding-bike-in-country-high-res-stock-photography/90096778 … This picture isn’t of me. Isn’t it funny how some of the most memorable moments of our lives are only recorded in our hearts? 

  • Story by Alice: Stephen and the New Bicycle

Dear Ones,

Some of my favorite channelers are solidly in favor of teaming up with our star brethren, and all other beings of high vibration, in order to help transmute the ancient suffering of humanity, and the consequent burden under which Earth labors. Is it wrong or dangerous to team up with celestial beings? Could Hollywood be right about all this – that evil stalks the Earth?

I can only take this question from the starting point of my own heart, which, after all, holds all the wonders of the Universe. If teaming up with a celestial team helps my heart shine, then that’s fine for now. I have a feeling that this teamwork is a temporary step in the evolution of my heart.

Story by Alice: Stephen and the New Bicycle

I’m reminded of the time in my youth when I received a 2-wheel bike as a birthday present. It was my heart’s greatest dream come true. But try as I might, I couldn’t figure out how to keep my balance. Then Stephen came to visit. He was 6 ½ years old – 6 months older than me. Incredibly worldly wise and experienced. My idol.

Now I lived out in the country, and the only place to practice bike balance was on my family’s gravel driveway. So Stephen and I went out on the driveway. I got on the bike. I could not quite reach the ground with my feet while sitting on the bike seat, so I had to stand off the seat to get one foot on a pedal, and the other foot on the ground. This lack of a seat made the venture seem utterly precarious.

Stephen said I should start pedaling. He would hold the bike steady from behind, so I could keep my balance. I started pedaling. I was comforted to hear him running behind me. He said, “Pedal faster!” So I did.

The wind was whipping through my hair. I felt a sense of wild exhilaration. Then I realized I couldn’t hear Stephen running beside me anymore. I looked back, and there he was, 100 yards behind me, grinning and waving.

Unfortunately, the act of turning my head unbalanced me, and I toppled off the bike. But ever since that day, I was able to balance and ride on my beautiful new bike.

I think it’s like that with our Christed star brethren – they’re helping us hone our Ascension Skills. Once we get our balance, they’ll be smiling and waving us on.

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