SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I would like to talk a little bit about the effects of war on the social fabric of America. What really happens when our young people go to war? And what happens to them after they have been to war? That’s the topic, and that’s the subject.

Recruitment Among Economically and Psychologically Disadvantaged

First I would like to mention that recruitment of young people in America for the military … the enlisted military as opposed to officers … is a very selective process. It typically happens with young people who have not high prospects, because of the social situation in which they find themselves. Or it can happen amongst young people who have a hard time with their natal families, or who do not get enough emotional support from their natal families. So, it is usually a question of economics, or of psychology of a lack of something, that draws young people into the enlisted military.

What do they find there, in the military? They find a chance to identify with people, to feel that a group of people care about them. And they are willing to risk their lives in order to have that feeling.

Nature of the Universe

I have talked, in the past, about ‘audiovisual clips’ that get stuck to our etheric template.

The nature of this Universe is love and Light and joy. The nature of our physical bodies, our etheric template, our emotional body, our higher and lower mental bodies, and our body of Light … each of these is composed of love, Light and joy.

Third Dimensional Distortions of Light – Relative Untruth of War

Our experience in the Third Dimension, however, contains some distortions of the Light that allow us to experience scenes that are relatively untrue. And one of the least true scenes that we can experience … most divorced from the warp and woof of time and space, and true reality … most untrue … is the experience of war.

Soul Wounding – Cellular Memory – Audiovisual Clips of Distortions of Light

When we experience things that are very different from the true nature of reality, our Souls are wounded by this. Our Souls retain a memory … our bodies, while we are embodied, retain a cellular memory … what I call a short clip, a short video, an audiovisual clip … of this distortion of Light.

Ghosts and Soul Wounding ‘Tape Loops’

Amongst ghosts, those that have a hard time remembering to the Light, and to return to their guardians, and to return, in their Soul journey, to wherever they need to be … the reason for this ‘stuckness’ of the Spirit after death is … according to energy healer and teacher Jeffrey Allen … https://www.iamjeffreyallen.com/ … whom I trust very much as a spiritual counselor … the reason is that there is an audiovisual clip stuck, right in front of their astral eyes … their ghostly eyes … that plays, like a tape loop, over and over again, a scene of horror.

And it takes one of us, who are clear, to wake them up a little bit, and try to wake them up a little, with words like these …

Say, did you know you passed on? You could turn to your guardians now, and say, ‘What’s up?” … See what you could do next. 

And so then they distract themselves … pull themselves back a little, from that false reality, and begin to realize that they have many options.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) ‘Tape Loops’ 

So this idea of the audiovisual clip that has not been cleared from the etheric net, and is not true, carries over to scenes of war. When our young people experience the horrors of war, the audiovisual clips of these atrocities become stuck to them … stuck to their cellular memory.

Kind of like when a little child venture off into a meadow, and comes back home with little cockleburs … little seeds … stuck all over its clothing. Cockleburs that are hard to get off. This is like the memories of war.

So, what happens then? Well, in psychological terms, what happens is called Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. And that can be a kind of a nightmare awareness of reality that continues to play in the minds and Spirits of our young people all their lives.

Science vs Spirit: The Dumbing Down of Our Awareness of the Fourth Dimension

But there is another way of looking at this whole thing. And that is through the lens of Demonic awareness, and diabolical intent. Before you turn off your video … and in defense of this point of view, and of the worthwhileness of considering this point of view … I would like to mention that awareness of the Demonic Realm… and of demonization of the human Spirit … is one of the basic tenets of Christianity. And spoken of quite frequently in the Bible. And also in the sacred texts of India, in Hinduism; and in Buddhism, you will find reference to demons and devils.

In modern America, we tend to downplay all this, because of the advent of science … which is yet another mental filter that cuts down on the truth … the total truth of reality.

In fact, in the fourth dimension, which we are all experiencing right now, and becoming aware of, there are such things as Demonic entities. And these entities derive their sustenance from human anguish.

What Really Happens When People Go to War? 

What really happens when people go to war? Do they kill each other? Do they ‘win’ something from that? Does one side ‘win’ over the other side?

Or is it, in fact, the Demonic influence on the third dimension, through the fourth dimension, that causes war? That causes humankind to turn, one against the other … when in fact we are all friends?

If I were to look through the lens of this Awareness … fourth dimensional Awareness … at a scene of battle, what would I really see?

  • I would see beings of Darkness, descending on the brilliance of the human Soul, and tearing Soul wounding in the people who are fighting; both those who are killing, and those who are being killed.
  • I would see these young people returning from war, with greater Soul wounding than they had, on entering it.
  • And I would know that they would have a greater tendency to turn to those behavioral qualities that would increase the Demonic influence on them.

Demonization of the Human Spirit

What are those behavioral qualities? Well, I looked this up in a Christian text, and I agree with two of them, for sure …

Black Magic. One is practice of the black arts. Did you know that, amongst our military, and amongst our Veterans, Paganism is on the rise? Now Paganism itself is not a bad thing, but Paganism with the practice of black magic is a bad thing.

Power Over Others. The intention there, is to regain a sense of power … which is not a bad thing. But the problem is, that it is power over other people, and damage to other people. The minute we turn to the black arts … the minute we think a curse, even … those of us that are clairaudient can actually hear the influx of Demons into the Soul field of the person that so behaves. Immediately. There is no delay.

Drug Use. On to the topic of drugs. Drugs are the other main gateway, or inroad, that the Demonic world uses, to further wound the human Soul. And I think you would find … you would have to look it up … but I think you would find, that amongst Veterans of wars, there is greater drug use, than with the general population. And the reason I would think this to be true, is that the trauma of war that they carry, is so at odds with the nature of all that is, that it would be hard not to want to use drugs to forget about the Soul wounding … the post-traumatic stress disorder.

Again from the clairaudient realm … This is a long one; this is my longest so far. Bear with me! … Again from the clairaudient realm, I know that the moment a person turns to drugs, Demons descend upon them. I can hear it happening.

So these are three behavioral qualities that war causes: Black magic, power over others, and drug use.

Other Behavioral Qualities That War Causes. And in addition we have …

  • Moving in to disenfranchisement of those we feel to be powerless.
  • Vigilante activity: Taking the Law into our own hands.
  • Injury to children: It might be sexual abuse. It might even be killing.
  • Spousal abuse; physical injury to our family.
  • Viewing other people with different points of view from our own … or with different choices of lifestyle from ourselves … or with less money than us … as not actually being people. We might even think that they are the riffraff of the world that we have the right to eliminate from the social fabric.

This is a direct consequence of the Demonic influence that’s exerted through the War mentality. It is not people that are doing it.

A Call for Peace Among Nations

There are no people that are not of love and Light … that are not wonderful Souls … that are not huge hearts … that are not the most incredible energy in the entire Universe … But the minute that they choose lack of Awareness over Awareness, through drugs, then that is the key that the Demons need. You know what I mean? It is the key.

So, I would like to make a case, in this roundabout way, for the possibility that war is not of human origin. That humans are all one true and eternal race of Souls. That we will have no part of injury to our fellow humans.

And in so doing, our Soul wounding will be knit up. And the family of humanity will once more shine forth in the Universe.

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

Also a consideration is the increased incidence of AIDS among military personnel, compared to the incidence in the general population. I imagine this would be a cause of deep suffering to those of our valiant young people who may be so affected. The UN had a good write-up on this …

Dear Ones,

This is about the sense of separateness from Source … individuality, anguish. And about letting go, acceptance, nonjudgment, freedom. With some asides on the maturation of nations …

There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Anguish Like Sunlight, in the Noonday Sky, Glinting Off Mica in a Basalt Rock

Yesterday I ran across two people out in the desert: A man and a woman. And I noticed in them a quality that I have not seen before: There was a certain sharpness there. It was like Light from the noonday Sun, glinting off shards of mica in a basalt rock … A sharpness … It was like a longing of the Soul to remember that it is not separate. It was like a hardness of individuality and personality. It was an intense pain there.

And at first, my heart tightened up, with the anguish of their Soul expression. And then I remembered a talk by Mooji … https://mooji.org/ … about overcoming the world, that I had listened to that morning.

On Appreciating the Diversity of Soul Choices We Humans Make

To paraphrase: Mooji talked about how … in this world of perception and sensation … we experience all kinds of energies. And it is good to just notice them and say: Ah! Here is the flavor of that energy! Here is the taste of energy, different from the last one that I experienced. Like that … And just notice them, and let them go …

Rather than to step into the feeling of someone else and say: Oh my God, I wish I could change this suffering and this agony!  … it is better to say: Here is a Soul … a unique expression of the Divine … that has chosen to experience this energy at this moment. Like that … And appreciate the diversity of energies that we sense, here in the third dimension.

The Moment When We First Sense That We Are Free

On my way leaving from this place [the hotel where I stayed] today, I was overhearing two young military people talking. They had just gotten back from a tour of active duty, according to the lady downstairs. And so, there was exhilaration … happiness. He was saying (to paraphrase): What I love, is that moment when people first sense that they are free. 

And I have to say, I love that moment too. I love that moment when I sense that I am free to notice everything, without following along into the flow of that thing; but to be ready for the very next moment of Awareness … without thought … without consideration. Is that not true freedom?

Reflections on Fighting for Freedom

Reflections on what the young man said: And on the other hand, when you think about it: Can we fight for freedom … the freedom of other people? Can we fight for freedom, and make them have that choice?

Or, would it be better to allow each culture to evolve, in an organic way … to express itself as a flowering of personal choice and freedom, when the time is right? Is that not true freedom: That we should decide, for ourselves, how our own nation should be? …

  • Whether we unconsciously surrender our power to those of our leadership,
  • Or whether we, as a people, decide that the power is ours, and that our leaders represent us faithfully, and carry out our wishes …

This is the evolution of the Soul, through the national culture. You know?

Can we fight for Peace? Can we truly fight for Peace? Is that a true thought? Or is that a mental filter?

How can the resonance of Aggression aid the resonance of Peace? Was Gandhi right when he felt that simply being peaceful was the way to increase Peace in the world; simply being that Peace?

And if we, as a people, if we as Americans were to be that freedom, that freedom of choice, that freedom from societal expectations; the freedom to express ourselves in our own lives, and to follow our hearts … Would that not be a shining Light for the whole world?

Everyone has their own ideas! … That is freedom too.

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