Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ARE HUMANS EVIL? DOES THE DEVIL TEMPT US?

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

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

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

Dear Ones,

Here are excerpts from a blog I just now updated …

ASTRAL RAPE: THE INFLUENCE OF ASTRAL ELEMENTARIES SUCH AS INCUBI AND SUCCUBI

I have clair heard for a long time now that folks are experiencing persistent astral rape at night. Unfortunately, we are blaming each other for these events, when in fact they are the workings of a certain sort of negative astral entity, the ‘elementary’. Here is a description adapted from “The Theosophical Writings of Annie Besant.” It is about depraved people … people with coarse astral matter … who have experienced sudden death, perhaps by suicide or accident …

“‘Unhappy shades, if sinful and sensual, they wander about . . . until their death-hour comes. Cut off in the full flush of earthly passions, which bind them to familiar scenes, they are enticed by opportunities which mediums afford to gratify them vicariously. They are the Pishachas, the Incubi and Succubi of medieval times: the demons of thirst, gluttony, lust and avarice : elementaries of intensified craft, wickedness and cruelty: provoking their victims to horrid crimes, and revelling in their commission’” –from Link: “Theosophical Manuals No. 3: Death—and After?” by Annie Besant, 1906, at Project Gutenberg … https://www.gutenberg.org/files/18266/18266-h/18266-h.htm … “The Project Gutenberg EBook of Death–and After?, by Annie Besant This eBook is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT ASTRAL RAPE

At first, as a person is beginning to awaken to an understanding of the demonic vehicle of astral rape on the Earthly planes, the sensation is identified with the Id, and the Id with the Ego, to such an extent that the experience is hypnotically compelling and overwhelmingly intoxicating. This painting, while it is of a woman ecstatically in love with the ‘night mare’ of astral rape, might as easily have been of a man in the same condition …

After a span of years, if the person so afflicted begins to sense the Demon conveyance of the dream of astral rape, rather than sensing a false connection between two human beings, then the Awareness dawns that this is a trap set by the Demon Realm to ensnare the human electromagnetic field and drain it of energy, making life on Earth but a poor shadow of that majestic energy that is our birthright.

When this Awareness dawns, then there is nothing more alluring, nothing more beguiling to a person, than the notion that, by hook or by crook, they will find a way to win themselves free of the delusive enticements of the Big Bads.

My own experience is that the feeling of astral rape can be overcome by transforming the energy of the lower triangle to Divine Love and Light. One way to do this is, while the noospheric experience of astral rape seems to be taking place, to visualize that God is clearing the Light Body of sexual malware and negspeak … such as the Puritan notion that sexuality is evil, or the cultural undercurrent notions that men are Satanic, or that women are demonic.

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This discussion is background information for an upcoming blog presenting a syncretic theory on the class of beings termed …

  • The Antisocial Personality (ASP) of Psychology;
  • The ‘Elementary’ (aka Black Soul or Dark Soul) of Theosophy;
  • The Reptilians or ‘Hybrids’ of popular folklore, and 
  • The ‘Controllers’ (who are said to have been mind controlling humankind) in the context of the Awakening.

The current blog offers a metaphysical approach to this class of beings. The blog describes the circumstances surrounding the formation of the being known as the  ‘Elementary’ (the ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’) and the rare instance of devolution and loss of the Soul, in the context of the teachings of the School of Theosophy. The quotations below are from “The Seven Principles of Man,” by Annie Besant. (1)

First, some preliminary information on the ‘Quaternary’, that aspect of man which I touch upon in my blogs on the Gut Brain, the Lower Triangle, the Vital Body and the Desire Elemental.

THE QUATERNARY, OR FOUR LOWER PRINCIPLES OF A HUMAN BEING

The Quaternary comprises four lower principles. These are prana, which is the spirit of life; desire (or kama); the etheric double (sometimes termed the Linga Sharira); and the beast in us (the Sthula Sharîra). Annie Besant has a cogent description of the quaternary (1) :

The Quaternary, Without Mind, Is a Lower Animal

“The quaternary, regarded alone, ere it is affected by contact with the mind, is merely a lower animal; it awaits the coming of the mind to make it man. Theosophy teaches that through past ages man was thus slowly built up, stage by stage, principle by principle, until he stood as a quaternary, brooded over but not in contact with the Spirit, waiting for that mind which could alone enable him to progress farther, and to come into conscious union with the Spirit, so fulfilling the very object of his being.” (1)

Kama-Manas: Union of Desire with Lower Mind

“United to the lower part of Manas, the mind, as Kвma-Manas, it becomes the normal human brain intelligence, and that aspect of it will be dealt with presently. Considered by itself, it remains the brute in us, the ‘ape and tiger’ of Tennyson, the force which most avails to keep us bound to earth and to stifle in us all higher longings by the illusions of sense…

Kama-Manas Is the Personality, the ‘Shadow’ of the Soul

Kama-Manas is the personal self of man; we have already seen that the quaternary, as a whole, is the personality, ‘the shadow’, and the lower Manas gives the individualising touch that makes the personality recognise itself as ‘I’.” (1)

HOW MANAS, OR MIND, IS DIVIDED INTO LOWER AND HIGHER DURING AN INCARNATION

“We must now consider Manas during a single incarnation, which will serve as the type of all, and we will start when the Ego has been drawn – by causes set a-going in previous earth-lives – to the family in which is to be born the human being who is to serve as its next tabernacle. (I do not deal here with reincarnation, since that great and most essential doctrine of Theosophy must be expounded separately).” (1)

On the Higher Manas or Mind

“The Thinker, then, awaits the building of the ‘house of life’ which he is to occupy; and now arises a difficulty; himself a spiritual entity living on the mental or third plane upwards, a plane far higher than that of the physical universe, he cannot influence the molecules of gross matter of which his dwelling is built by the direct play upon them of his own most subtle particles.” (1)

On the Lower Manas or Mind

“So, he projects part of his own substance, which clothes itself with astral matter, and then with the help of etheric matter permeates the whole nervous system of the yet unborn child, to form, as the physical apparatus matures, the thinking principle in man.

“This projection from Manas, spoken of as its reflection, its shadow, its ray, and by many another descriptive and allegorical [Page 29] name, is the lower Manas, in contradistinction to the higher ManasManas, during every period of incarnation, being dual.

On the Dual Mind 

“On this, H. P. Blavatsky says: ‘Once imprisoned, or incarnate, their (the Manas) essence becomes dual; that is to say the rays of the eternal divine Mind, considered as individual entities, assume a twofold attribute which is …

–“‘(a) their essential, inherent, characteristic, heaven-aspiring mind (higher Manas), and

–“‘(b) the human quality of thinking, or animal cogitation, rationalised owing to the superiority of the human brain, the Kвma-tending or lower Manas” (Key to Theosophy, p. 184).” (1)

THE PART PLAYED BY LOWER MANAS IN THE EVOLUTION OR DEVOLUTION OF THE SOUL

The Normal Role of Lower Manas Is to Convey Our Incarnational Experience to Higher Manas  

“We must now turn our attention to this lower Manas alone, and see the part which it plays in the human constitution. It is engulfed in the quaternary, and we may regard it as clasping Kama with one hand, while with the other it retains its hold on its father, the higher Manas. Whether it will be dragged down by Kama altogether and be torn away from the triad to which by its nature it belongs, or whether it will triumphantly carry back to its source the purified experiences of its earth-life – that is the life-problem set and solved in each successive incarnation.” (1)

When Lower Manas is Wrenched Free of Higher Manas, an ‘Elementary’ (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’) Is Formed, and the Soul Devolves Until It Is Lost

Thus we see that the Goal of lower manas is to carry back incarnational to higher manas at death. But if the union of kama-manas, which constituted the earthly personality, is overweighted by desire, then lower manas cannot reunite with higher manas at death.

Instead, lower manas will be carried away by kama, and become a separate entity known as an ‘Elementary’ (aka, a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’, as will be discussed later). The trauma experienced by Higher Manas by this separation causes Soul devolution, and the loss of the Soul.

Will One’s Incarnational Actions Cause Soul Evolution or Soul Devolution? 

At death, then lower manas has one of two fates, depending on the way the life was lived.

  • If an average or good life was lived, then the role of Lower Manas is to assist in Soul Evolution by ferrying life experiences to Higher Manas, with which it reunites.
  • If an exceedingly depraved life was lived, then the weight of desire (kama) in kama-manas may cause the link between lower and higher manas (mind) to sever; and Soul Devolution will occur. In that rare instance, the severed kama-manas will form a separate being, an ‘Elementary’ (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’). More on this below.

ON GHOSTS: THE TYPICAL KAMA-MANAS, AFTER DEATH, HAS ONE OF TWO POSSIBLE FATES

An understanding of the normal process of dissolution of kama-manas after death is important to the understanding of the rare instance where an ‘Elementary’  (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’) is formed, and Soul devolution begins (to be discussed next). These passages describe how Kama-Manas, the union of desire with mind, typically fares after we pass on. There are two normal possibilities, and one unusual and highly undesirable possibility. According to Annie Besant (1)  …

“Soon after the death of the physical body, Kama-Manas is set free, and dwells for a while on the astral plane clothed with a body of astral matter….

“Meanwhile, that portion of the impure garment of the lower Manas which remains entangled with Kama gives to the desire-body a somewhat confused consciousness, a broken memory of the events of the life just closed.” (1)

First Possibility: Ghosts of Those Who Had Strong Animal Tendencies 

“If the emotions and passions were strong and the manasic element weak during the period of incarnation, the desire-body will be strongly energised, and will persist in its activity for a considerable length of time after the death of the physical body. It will also show a considerable amount of consciousness, as much of the [Page 43] manasic ray will have been overpowered by the vigorous kamic elements, and will have remained entangled in them.” (1)

Second Possibility: Ghosts of Those Who Led a High-Minded, Pure Life

“If, on the other hand, the earth-life just closed was characterised my mentality and purity rather than by passion, the desire-body, being but poorly energised, will be a pale simulacrum of the person to whom it belonged, and will fade away, disintegrate and perish before any long period has elapsed.” (1)

On the Intelligence of Ghosts Who Have Animalistic Charisma

“The ‘spook’ already mentioned (ante, p. 20-21) will now be understood. It may show very considerable intelligence, if the manasic element be still largely present, and this will be the case with the desire-body of persons of strong animal nature and forcible though coarse intellect. For intelligence working in a very powerful kamic personality will be exceedingly strong and energetic, though not subtle or delicate, and the spook of such a person, still further vitalised by the magnetic currents of persons yet living in the body, may show much intellectual ability of a low type.” (1)

How Such Ghosts Suck Vitality from the Living

“But such a spook is conscienceless, devoid of good impulses, tending towards disintegration, and communications with it can work for evil only, whether we regard them as prolonging its vitality by the currents which it sucks up from the bodies and kamic elements of the living, or as exhausting the vitality of these living persons and polluting them with astral connections of an altogether undesirable kind…” (1)

How Ghosts Live in Limbo

Kama-loka [limbo] (from loka, a place, and so the place for Kama) is a name often used to designate that plane of the astral world to which these spooks belong, and from this ray forth magnetic currents of poisonous character, as from a pest-house float out germs of disease which may take root and grow in the congenial soil of some poorly vitalised physical body.” (1)

THE THIRD POSSIBILITY: FORMATION OF AN ‘ELEMENTARY’ (I.E., A BLACK SOUL OR DARK SOUL); AND DEVOLUTION AND LOSS OF THE SOUL

This possibility occurs when lower manas and higher manas (i.e., the lower mind and the higher mind) are ‘rent asunder’.

  • This rending may occur at death, at the ‘weighing in’ of the Soul. In this case, the being that is formed of the kama (the desire matter of the personality) and the lower manas (the lower mind that created a sense of ‘I’-ness, or egoic identity during the incarnation) is called an ‘Elementary’.
  • Or this rending may occur during incarnation, when a personality ‘acts out’ in such a depraved way that the Soul is deeply and irrevocably injured. 

Annie Besant describes this eloquently:

Snapping of the Silver Thread (or ‘Silver Cord’) That Binds Lower Manas to Higher Manas

“There remains the third possibility for Kama-Manas, to which we must now turn our attention, the fate spoken of earlier as ‘terrible in its consequences, which may befall the kamic principle’. It may break away from its source made one with Kama instead of with the higher Manas. [This separate being forged of desire and lower mind is sometimes called an ‘Elementary’, a ‘Black Soul’, or a ‘Dark Soul’.]

“This is fortunately, a rare event, as rare at one pole of human life as the complete re-union with the higher Manas is rare at the other. But still the possibility remains and must be stated. The personality may be so strongly controlled by Kama that, in the struggle between the kamic and manasic elements, the victory may remain wholly with the former.

“The lower Manas may become so enslaved that its essence may be frayed and thinner and thinner by the constant rub and strain, until at last persistent yielding to the promptings of desire bears its inevitable fruit, and the slender link which unites the higher to [Page 46] the lower Manas, the ‘silver thread that binds it to the Master’ (aka the ‘silver cord’), snaps in two.

“Then, during earth-life, the lower quaternary is wrenched away from the Triad to which it was linked, and the higher nature is severed wholly from the lower. The human being is rent in twain, the brute has broken itself free, and it goes forth unbridled, carrying with it the reflections of that manasic light which should have been its guide through the desert of life.

The ‘Elementary’ (i.e., ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’): Brute Animal in Human Form 

“A more dangerous brute it is than its fellows of the unevolved animal world, just because of these fragments in it of the higher mentality of man. Such a being, human in form but brute in nature, human in appearance but without human truth, or love or justice – such a one may now and then be met with in the haunts of men, putrescent while still living, a thing to shudder at with deepest, if hopeless compassion. What is its fate after the funeral knell has tolled?

“Ultimately, there is the perishing of the personality that has thus broken away from the principles that can alone give it immortality. But a period of persistence lies before it.

Reincarnations of the ‘Elementary’ (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or a ‘Dark Soul’)

“The desire-body of such a one is an entity of terrible potency, and it has this unique peculiarity, that it is able under certain rare circumstances to reincarnate in the world of men. It is not a mere ‘spook’ on the way to disintegration; it has retained, entangled in its coils, too much of the manasic element to permit of such natural dissipation in space.

“It is sufficiently an independent entity, lurid instead of radiant, with manasic flame rendered foul instead of purifying, as to be able to take to itself a garment of flesh once more and dwell as man with men. Such a man – if the word [Page 47] may indeed be applied to the mere human shell with brute interior – passes through a period of earth-life the natural foe of all who are still normal in their humanity.

“With no instincts save those of the animal, driven only by passion, never even by emotion, with a cunning that no brute can rival, a deliberate wickedness that plans evil in fashion unknown to the mere frankly natural impulses of the animal world, the reincarnated entity touches ideal vileness. Such soil the page of human history as the monsters of iniquity that startle us now and again into a wondering cry, ‘Is this a human being?’

Devolution and Loss of the Soul Described 

“Sinking lower with each successive incarnation, the evil force gradually wears itself out, and such a personality perishes separated from the source of life. It finally disintegrates, to be worked up into other forms of living things, but as a separate existence, it is lost.

“It is a bead broken off the thread of life, and the immortal Ego that incarnated in that personality has lost the experience of that incarnation, has reaped no harvest from that life-sowing. Its ray has brought nothing back, its lifework for that birth has been a total and complete failure, whereof nothing remains to weave into the fabric of its own eternal Self. [Page 48]”

Dear Ones,

The information below is largely adapted from the teachings of the School of Theosophy, with additional thoughts of my own.

ELEMENTARIES

According to Theosophy, depraved men imprisoned in their astral bodies are known as ‘elementaries’. Elementaries, though in astral form, still long to indulge in just those vices they practiced while in their physical bodies. These elementaries can be very crafty, wicked and cruel. They can provoke people still in physical form to acts of horror and violence. In this work the elementaries revel: In creating suffering in humankind; in provoking crimes of utmost depravity here on Earth.

ASTRAL THUGGEES

My feeling is that, among these ‘elementaries’ those who have developed and employed psychic powers for their own enrichment and empowerment … rather than for the good of humankind … during their time in physical form, represent the most loathsome form of elementaries.

These are the ‘thuggees’ now trapped on the astral plane … people who developed psychic powers while in physical form, not for the good of humankind, but rather for their own personal power and wealth … and now find themselves unhappy inhabitants of the astral plane. Being just too ‘evil’ to reincarnate, they take their delights where they may, by aiding those of criminal intent who are still in form to torture their fellow humans.

During these glorious days of the Ascension of humankind, the astral thuggees are confined to the noxious noosphere of Earth’s large cities, where they glom to the ambitious endeavors of spiritual adepts who develop their psychic superpowers for personal gain.

Hybrids

It is sometimes this glom of one or up to six astral thuggees to a spiritual adept that is somewhat infelicitously termed the ‘hybrid’. There are astral-human gloms more perilous to the eternal Soul, that also go by the sobriquet ‘hybrid’. For more on these, see the below subheading “Loss of the Soul” … You may also wish to search my blog for the word: soulless  ... as there has been more development of this idea, and better understanding of the process of Soul devolution.

Astral Thuggees in Congested Urban Areas

Because of the prevalence of astral thuggees in congested urban environments, true spiritual adepts find city life incompatible with their intention to rise to higher consciousness. When these true seekers venture into the cities, they find the astral thuggees crowding round, bent on mischief of the worst sort. That these astral thuggees still possess their psychic powers on the astral plane makes the situation even more dire.

True seekers, because of the purity of their Souls’ Light, really stand out against the camera obscura that is the city inhabitants’ noosphere during this time of Ascension. My feeling is that this is so because the noosphere of the more sparsely inhabited areas of post-Ascension Earth is incompatible with the coarseness of the astral thuggees’ astral matter.

In other words, they simply cannot survive these days except in the large cities, and their numbers are slowly dwindling, even there. Where they will go is no concern of mine; I leave it to the ineffable wisdom of the Creator.

For those true spiritual adepts who chose to remain in the cities, my thought is that their intentions must be of the utmost purity, and that their stance must be one of respect for the free will of all beings, and of devotion to the All, so that they may sidestep the attention of these ravening wolves of the astral plane. To get back to my topic …

According to the School of Theosophy, after a person dies, his higher subtle bodies, in the natural course of afterlife experience, quite naturally begins to withdraw from his astral body. The mind (‘manas’) begins to disentangle from the desire body (‘kama’). However, there are rare cases where the personality is so controlled by desire that the lower mind is enslaved to desire. In such cases, manas cannot be disentangled from kama. This I feel to be the case with the thuggees who have passed on …

LOSS OF THE SOUL

There is a link between the lower mind and the higher mind. This link is called the ‘silver thread’ or ‘silver cord’. In these very rare cases of hopeless entanglement in the desire world, this link will snap in two. This is what is known in the occult world as loss of the Soul. When the personal self so abruptly separates from the higher ego, it is doomed to perish, as without our connection to our Souls we are but a decaying shell of what once was a vital, thrumming connection to the Infinite.

If this link is wrenched in twain while a person is in form, then the ‘lower quaternary’ (the physical body, the life principle, the astral body, and the kama rupa, or seat of animal desires and passions) is separated from the Upper Imperishable Triad (the higher principles: Universal Spirit or Atma, Spiritual Soul or Buddhi, and Human Soul or Mind or manas) …

For more on Principle, or Fundamental Essence, the lower quaternary, and the upper imperishable triad, as described in Theosophy, see … Link: “Principle,” in Theosophy Wiki … https://theosophy.wiki/w-en/index.php?title=Principle ..

After it passes from physical form, such a being has a terrible power to affect human beings. Rarely, it may reincarnate. Possessed of no motive but primal passion, yet cunning as a man, it is the ferocious foe of all normal humans.

The elementary so incarnating sinks lower with each incarnation. Cut off from Source, the elementary’s vital drive wears itself down till it exists no more. (For more on this, see … Citation: “The Seven Principles of Man,” by Annie Besant, 1909.)

Worse yet, in the place the subtle body known as the Higher Mental Body might otherwise occupy in such an accursed incarnation, interlopes a malicious astral entity, one such as is termed in esoteric literature a demon, a devil, or a fallen angel.

THE VITALIZED SHELL

“The Shell is the desire body, emptied of the Triad, which has now passed onwards; it is the third of the transitory garments of Soul, cast aside and left in Kamaloka to disintegrate….

“Again, the Shell is very easily taken possession of by elementals, the semi-conscious forces working in the kingdoms of Nature, and may be used by them as a convenient vehicle for many a prank and trick….”

Stories by Alice: The Saint Whose Astral Shell Was Snatched Up by a Demon 

I remember an experience in this lifetime of placing the photo of a deceased saint on my altar. This saint was being honored by many people in the world, at the time. For a while I had ecstatic experiences, and many miraculous events unfolded in my life.

People of great religious faith in this saint were, at that time, according to the astral stories, channeling the teachings of this saint, who, according to their lore, would remain on the astral plane, in astral form, teaching them forever.

Then the event described by the School of Theosophy apparently occurred: The astral form of the saint wore down to the point where his mental body found release, and went on to the heaven worlds, where it could digest the Soul lessons of its recent incarnation.

Meanwhile, all hell broke loose on the astral plane, for the astral shell cast off by the saint apparently proved quite alluring to a demon of the vilest sort. The devotees of the saint continued to attempt to channel his teachings through what they felt to be his eternally present astral form. Yet in that form lurked this most odious of demons, intent on preying upon them as they, all unawares, called its name while attempting to summon the astral presence of their saint.

I remember one such instance, amongst the astral stories, when a greatly esteemed devotee of the saint, attempting to channel his Soul wisdom, instead began precipitously to spew forth, in a general assembly, demonic curses and Satanic howling.

Raptly attentive and greatly dismayed, I then heard another member of the assembly speak, with the necessary air of authority: Satan, be gone! And then the astral airs stilled, and the demonic presence snuck away.

That goes to show there is a time and place for everything, on the astral realm. A spiritual teacher or saint cannot be expected to endure there forever; no more so than any man. We must anticipate the Soul’s progress from realm to realm, after death, and grant every great saint Soul’s respite at the proper time.

Whether the saint be with us or no, the presence of God himself is always within and without us. There is naught to fear, in the vale of tears. Our faith shall see us through.

As they say … Vocatus atque non vocatus Deus aderit .

In other words … Whether we call His name or no, God is by our side.

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

Dear Ones,

ASTRAL RAPE: THE INFLUENCE OF ASTRAL ELEMENTARIES SUCH AS INCUBI AND SUCCUBI

I have clair heard for a long time now that folks are experiencing persistent astral rape at night. Unfortunately, we are blaming each other for these events, when in fact they are the workings of a certain sort of negative astral entity, the ‘elementary’. Here is a description adapted from “The Theosophical Writings of Annie Besant.” It is about depraved people … people with coarse astral matter … who have experienced sudden death, perhaps by suicide or accident …

“‘Unhappy shades, if sinful and sensual, they wander about . . . until their death-hour comes. Cut off in the full flush of earthly passions, which bind them to familiar scenes, they are enticed by opportunities which mediums afford to gratify them vicariously. They are the Pishachas, the Incubi and Succubi of medieval times: the demons of thirst, gluttony, lust and avarice : elementaries of intensified craft, wickedness and cruelty: provoking their victims to horrid crimes, and revelling in their commission'” –from Link: “Theosophical Manuals No. 3: Death—and After?” by Annie Besant, 1906, at Project Gutenberg … https://www.gutenberg.org/files/18266/18266-h/18266-h.htm “The Project Gutenberg EBook of Death–and After?, by Annie Besant This eBook is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever.

Question: What is with the creepy peeping horse? Answer: It is a ‘nightmare’! ‘Mare’ is a name for a female horse. So this is a pun.

“An incubus is a demon in male form who, according to mythological and legendary traditions, lies upon women in order to engage in sexual activity with them…. Superstitious folk have for many centuries told salacious tales of incubi and succubi, and Genesis 6 is a passage used to support the credibility of such stories. [My feeling is, Genesis 6 is about the Nephilim, an ET race that once inhabited Earth, and not about incubi and succubi. –Alice B.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT ASTRAL RAPE

At first, as a person is beginning to awaken to an understanding of the demonic vehicle of astral rape on the Earthly planes, the sensation is identified with the Id, and the Id with the Ego, to such an extent that the experience is hypnotically compelling and overwhelmingly intoxicating. This painting, while it is of a woman ecstatically in love with the ‘night mare’ of astral rape, might as easily have been of a man in the same condition …

Image: “Frenzy of Exultations,” by Wladyslaw Podkowinski, 1894, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Podkowi%C5%84ski-Sza%C5%82_uniesie%C5%84-MNK.jpg ..

After a span of years, if the person so afflicted begins to sense the Demon conveyance of the dream of astral rape, rather than sensing a false connection between two human beings, then the Awareness dawns that this is a trap set by the Demon Realm to ensnare the human electromagnetic field and drain it of energy, making life on Earth but a poor shadow of that majestic energy that is our birthright.

When this Awareness dawns, then there is nothing more alluring, nothing more beguiling to a person, than the notion that, by hook or by crook, they will find a way to win themselves free of the delusive enticements of the Big Bads.

My own experience is that the feeling of astral rape can be overcome by transforming the energy of the lower triangle to Divine Love and Light. One way to do this is, while the noospheric experience of astral rape seems to be taking place, to visualize that God is clearing the Light Body of sexual malware and negspeak … such as the Puritan notion that sexuality is evil, or the cultural undercurrent notions that men are Satanic, or that women are demonic.

Dear Ones,

We have talked in past about the different grades of astral matter. This is the matter of which our emotional body is composed. As the Theosophist C.W. Leadbeater says:

“First of all, then, it must be understood that the astral plane has seven subdivisions, each of which has its corresponding degree of materiality and its corresponding condition of matter. Now numbering these from the highest and least material downwards, we find that they naturally fall into three classes, divisions 1, 2 and 3 forming one such class, and 4, 5 and 6 another, while the seventh and lowest of all stands alone. The difference between the matter of one of these classes and the next would be commensurable with that between a solid and a liquid, while the difference between the matter of the subdivisions of a class would rather resemble that between two kinds of solid, such as, say, steel and sand….” –from “The Astral Plane: Its Scenery, Inhabitants, and Phenomena,” by C.W. Leadbeater. (2007). Urbana, Illinois: Project Gutenberg. Retrieved 7 August 2015, from http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21080 ..

Thus, some sorts of astral matter are fine, like water, and some are coarse, like sand. The finest grade is found in the first astral plane, and the coarsest is found in the seventh, or lowest, astral plane.

HOW DRUG USE MAKES ASTRAL MATTER COARSE

The coarseness of our astral matter, while we are in a body, depends upon the coarseness of our physical body. The latter depends on what we eat and drink; thus diet creates the inner environment of our astral body as well as our physical body. The most coarsening to these two bodies is brought about by hard alcoholic drugs such as vodka, scotch, bourbon, and hard recreational drugs such as opium, opiates, cocaine, and so on.

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL. Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” pp 64-66.

WHAT ASTRAL COARSENESS ATTRACTS INTO A PERSON’S LIFE

Since cocaine use coarsens a person’s mental and astral matter, this quality of coarseness creates in the person evil and selfish qualities … in the case of cocaine, specifically, insatiable lust, murder, and the desire for power over others. These thought forms draw to the cocaine user the thought forms of other cocaine users and the violence of the drug cartels.

It also attracts the attention of lower astral entities, such as the fearsome elementaries, who become the cocaine user’s constant companions, always tempting him or her to acts of sexual atrocity, such as sexual murder, acts of sadism, and violent sexual fantasies.

Here is an artist’s rendering of an astral entity associated with recreational drug needle use …

Image: “Thieving Sprite,” by Dan Scott … http://gathering-art.tumblr.com/post/142467932443/thieving-sprite-by-dan-scottThis image is reminiscent of a description I heard about a cocaine mosquito astral entity, that pricks the skin of cocaine users to stimulate desire for the drug.

This may be a negative ‘body elemental’ … that is, an intelligent thought-form created by the person himself, which can leap from him to another person with whom he associates. On the positive side, surely it is possible to create good and sweet body elementals that will bless those we meet with love and joy!

Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” from page 72, fourth paragraph beginning “Astral matter responds” through page 73, the second full paragraph ending “an outburst of passion.”

There is the further crowding round of ghosts who have died in the flush of depraved passion. Here is a description adapted from “The Theosophical Writings of Annie Besant”. It is about depraved people … people with coarse astral matter … who have experienced sudden death, perhaps by suicide or accident …

SATANIC INFLUENCE: MIND CONTROL, SPELLS, CURSES

Recreational drug use, including alcohol, which is taken for granted all over the world today, is considered by some to be a contract with Satan. This contract, they say, allows Satan to work through our minds, and create evil through our actions. In my youth, I thought this could not be true, since everyone I knew was on one form of alcohol or another, and most of them were legal.

Today, I am certain that it is true. Drug use is a choice of sleep over Awareness. It binds us to Satan, and hands him a contract to take over our dream world. It gives him the say-so to manipulate us with mind control, spells, and curses. We will further fall into a world of black magic, and begin to subconsciously use mind control, spells, and curses against other people. This is because, while we are asleep, Satan is teaching our sleeping astral forms to do this by using these same black magic methods against us.

WHEN A PERSON WITH COARSE ASTRAL MATTER COMES NEAR A PERSON WITH FINE ASTRAL MATTER

The strength of the desire elemental of the person with coarse astral matter, dwelling on emotional thought forms of lust, power over, and murder, creates psychic cording to the lower triangle (lower three chakras) of the person with fine astral matter. Mixing of the matter of the two astral bodies occurs.

The person with the coarse astral matter will ratchet up into a frenzy of sexuality, desire to rape, and desire to kill. The person with the finer vehicle will then find themselves haunted by emotional thought forms of the lowest possible order.  As the Bible says, Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. –1 Corinthians 15:33 (KJV, public domain)

REGAINING LOST GROUND

What must follow for the person who wishes to re-establish fineness of astral matter, after this downgrading of astral matter has taken place, is a conscious, unwavering pursuit of the highest thoughts and emotions.

Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” from page 70, paragraph 6 beginning “The astral body…” through page 71, the first two paragraphs (ending “progress at all …”)

According to this passage, it is relatively easy for the person to whom coarse astral matter has been transferred to return to a state of astral purity, by ever turning to the highest and noblest thoughts and emotions.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT ASTRAL HAUNTING BY DRUG USERS

I have had this trouble of being astrally haunted by drug users (whose vibrations I find distressing because of their coarseness) for years. When I feel the desire elementals of cocaine users reaching out to me, I am trying today quiet mental repetition of the phrase: I’m married to a lumberjack. …  (This is a ‘power over’ sexual threat.) So far today, this has worked quite well. However, I have my doubts (as you may too) about the effectiveness of meeting threat with threat.

My thought is, expressing threats on the astral plane will downgrade my own astral matter. Further, this particular thought may attract into my life a person whose astral matter is not congruent with my own. So the notion of developing good thought forms and good emotions is most likely more helpful in the long run.

COCAINE AND THE LION’S GATE

As you may know, we are going through the Lion’s Gate right now. This Gate is not compatible with hard drug use. Consequently, those whose bodies are compromised by hard drug toxins are likely to experience heightened mental and emotional chaos.

During the rest of 2015, as the Incoming Light becomes stronger and stronger, greater and greater purity of the physical body will be demanded, in order for the physical vehicle to match and be comfortable with the level of Light expressed on Earth. For a diet that will allow easy matching of your light level with that of Earth, go to “Judy Satori” … https://judysatori.com/ … search for the term “Ascension and You,” and then look for “Eating Plan for Fifth Dimensional Life.”

Total nixie on recreational drugs. Think twice about prescription drugs too … Do you really need them? Stay away from the over-the-counter drug blithely named sugar. I myself am determined to get off coffee too.

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

Loss of the Soul . Soul Devolution . by the Theosophists

Published on 18 July 2015

Dear Ones,

Here is a passage on Soul devolution from “Death — and After?” by Annie Besant …

“Kâmaloka. The Elementaries. The word ‘Elementary’ has been so loosely used that it has given rise to a good deal of confusion. It is thus defined by H.P. Blavatsky: …

“‘Properly, the disembodied souls of the depraved; these souls having, at some time prior to death, separated from themselves their divine spirits, and so lost their chance for immortality. But at the present stage of learning it has been thought best to apply the term to the spooks or phantoms of disembodied persons, in general to those whose temporary habitation is the Kâmaloka…. Once divorced from their higher Triads and their bodies, these souls remain in their Kâma Rûpic envelopes, and are irresistibly drawn to the earth amid elements congenial to their gross natures. Their stay in the Kâmaloka varies as to its duration; but ends invariably in disintegration, dissolving like a column of mist, atom by atom, in the surrounding elements.’

“Students of this series of Manuals know that it is possible for the lower Manas to so entangle itself with Kâma as to wrench itself away from its source, and this is spoken of in Occultism as “the loss of the Soul.”[26] It is, in other words, the loss of the personal self, which has separated itself from its Parent, the Higher Ego, and has[46] thus doomed itself to perish. Such a Soul, having thus separated itself from the Immortal Triad during its earth-life, becomes a true Elementary, after it has quitted the dense and etheric bodies. Then, clad in its desire body, it lives for awhile, for a longer or shorter time according to the vigour of its vitality, a wholly evil thing, dangerous and malignant, seeking to renew its fading vitality by any means laid open to it by the folly or ignorance of still embodied souls. Its ultimate fate is, indeed, destruction, but it may work much evil on its way to its self-chosen doom….”  (2)

Dear Ones,

Here is some very interesting information from the School of Theosophy on the boomerang effect of evil thought forms, and on thought forms in general:

HOW THOUGHT FORMS ARE FORMED

“When a man thinks of any concrete object—a book, a house, a landscape—he builds a tiny image of the object in the matter of his mental body. This image floats in the upper part of that body, usually in front of the face of the man and at about the level of the eyes. It remains there as long as the man is contemplating the object, and usually for a little time afterwards, the length of time depending upon the intensity and the clearness of the thought. This form is quite objective, and can be seen by another person, if that other has developed the sight of his own mental body. If a man thinks of another, he creates a tiny portrait in just the same way.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

WHETHER AND HOW THOUGHT FORMS ARE SENT TO OTHER PEOPLE

“If his thought is merely contemplative and involves no feeling (such as affection or dislike) or desire (such as a wish to see the person) the thought does not usually perceptibly affect the man of whom he thinks.

“If coupled with the thought of the person there is a feeling, as for example of affection, another phenomenon occurs besides the forming of the image. The thought of affection takes a definite form, which it builds out of the matter of the thinker’s mental body. Because of the emotion involved, it draws round it also matter of his astral body, and thus we have an astromental form which leaps out of the body in which it has been generated, and moves through space towards the object of the feeling of affection.

“If the thought is sufficiently strong, distance makes absolutely no difference to it; but the thought of an ordinary person is usually weak and diffused, and is therefore not effective outside a limited area.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ONE PERSON’S THOUGHT FORM REACHES THE PERSON THOUGHT ABOUT

“When this thought-form reaches its object it discharges itself into his astral and mental bodies, communicating to them its own rate of vibration. Putting this in another way, a thought of love sent from one person to another involves the actual transference of a certain amount both of force and of matter from the sender to the recipient, and its effect upon the recipient is to arouse the feeling of affection in him, and slightly but permanently to increase his power of loving. But such a thought also strengthens the power of affection in the thinker, and therefore it does good simultaneously to both.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

THE SEA OF OTHER MEN’S THOUGHTS

“Every thought builds a form; if the thought be directed to another person it travels to him; if it be distinctly selfish it remains in the immediate neighbourhood of the thinker; if it belongs to neither of these categories it floats for awhile in space and then slowly disintegrates.

“Every man therefore is leaving behind him wherever he goes a trail of thought forms; as we go along the street we are walking all the time amidst a sea of other men’s thoughts. If a man leaves his mind blank for a time, these residual thoughts of others drift through it, making in most cases but little impression upon him. Sometimes one arrives which attracts his attention, so that his mind seizes upon it and makes it its own, strengthens it by the addition of its force, and then casts it out again to affect somebody else. A man therefore, is not responsible for a thought which floats into his mind, because it may be not his, but someone else’s; but he is responsible if he takes it up, dwells upon it and then sends it out strengthened.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

SELF-CENTERED THOUGHTS STAY NEAR US

“Self-centred thought of any kind hangs about the thinker, and most men surround their mental bodies with a shell of such thoughts. Such a shell obscures the mental vision and facilitates the formation of prejudice.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

THOUGHT FORMS ARE CHARGED BATTERIES, WAITING TO DISCHARGE ON SOMEONE

“Each thought-form is a temporary entity. It resembles a charged battery, awaiting an opportunity to discharge itself. Its tendency is always to reproduce its own rate of vibration in the mental body upon which it fastens itself, and so to arouse in it a like thought.

“If the person at whom it is aimed happens to be busy or already engaged in some definite train of thought, the particles of his mental body are already swinging at a certain determinate rate, and cannot for the moment be affected from without. In that case the thought-form bides its time, hanging about its object until he is sufficiently at rest to permit its entrance; then it discharges itself upon him, and in the act ceases to exist.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

HOW BROODING ON EVIL THOUGHT FORMS CAUSES THEM TO HOVER ROUND US … THEY MAY EVEN LOOK LIKE PURSUING DEVILS TO US

“The self-centred thought behaves in exactly the same way with regard to its generator, and discharges itself upon him when opportunity offers. If it be an evil thought, he generally regards it as the suggestion of a tempting demon, whereas in truth he tempts himself. Usually each definite thought creates a new thought-form; but if a thought-form of the same nature is already hovering round the thinker, under certain circumstances a new thought on the same subject, instead of creating a new form, coalesces with and strengthens, the old one, so that by long brooding over the same subject a man may sometimes create a thought-form of tremendous power.

“If the thought be a wicked one, such a thought-form may become a veritable evil influence, lasting perhaps for many years, and having for a time all the appearance and powers of a real living entity.” — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

HOW OUR GOOD THOUGHT FORMS CAN HELP THE WORLD

“All these which have been described are the ordinary unpremeditated thoughts of man. A man can make a thought-form intentionally, and aim it at another with the object of helping him. This is one of the lines of activity adopted by those who desire to serve humanity. A steady stream of powerful thought directed intelligently upon another person may be of the greatest assistance to him. A strong thought-form may be a real guardian angel, and protect its object from impurity, from irritability or from fear. — C.W. Leadbeater (1)

THE EFFECT OF OUR THOUGHT FORMS ON OTHER PEOPLE

“Thought-forms directed towards individuals produce definitely marked effects, these effects being either partially reproduced in the aura of the recipient and so increasing the total result, or repelled from it.

Thoughts of Love, or Desire to Protect. “A thought of love and of desire to protect, directed strongly towards some beloved object, creates a form which goes to the person thought of, and remains in his aura as a shielding and protecting agent; it will seek all opportunities to serve, and all opportunities to defend, not by a conscious and deliberate action, but by a blind following out of the impulse impressed upon it, and it will strengthen friendly forces that impinge on the aura and weaken unfriendly ones.

“Thus may we create and maintain veritable guardian angels round those we love, and many a mother’s prayer for a distant child thus circles round him, though she knows not the method by which her ‘prayer is answered.’ –Annie Besant (2)

THE BOOMERANG EFFECT OF EVIL THOUGHTS

“In cases in which good or evil thoughts are projected at individuals, those thoughts, if they are to directly fulfill their mission, must find, in the aura of the object to whom they are sent, materials capable of responding sympathetically to their vibrations.

“Any combination of matter can only vibrate within certain definite limits, and if the thought-form be outside all the limits within which the aura is capable of vibrating, it cannot affect that aura at all. It consequently rebounds from it, and that with a force proportionate to the energy with which it impinged upon it….”–Annie Besant (2)

[This is the famed ‘boomerang effect’. So now, if a person receives telepathy with the emotional content of hatred or fear, and sends back telepathy with emotional content of love, peace and joy, then what will happen? The person who sent the hatred- or fear-filled message will receive back their telepathic letter ‘unopened’ … and this vibe will add to their own emotion.

The person who sends back love, peace and joy will find the intended person (who is embroiled in other emotions) unable to receive this message. And so the love, peace and joy will rebound to the sender … adding to their own vibe of the same feelings. –Alice]

“This is why it is said that a pure heart and mind are the best protectors against any inimical assaults, for such a pure heart and mind will construct an astral and a mental body of fine and subtle materials, and these bodies cannot respond to vibrations that demand coarse and dense matter. If an evil thought, projected with malefic intent, strikes such a body, it can only rebound from it, and it is flung back with all its own energy; it then flies backward along the magnetic line of least resistance, that which it has just traversed, and strikes its projector; he, having matter in his astral and mental bodies similar to that of the thought-form he generated, is thrown into respondent vibrations, and suffers the destructive effects he had intended to cause to another.

“Thus ‘curses [and blessings –Alice] come home to roost.’

“From this arise also the very serious effects of hating or suspecting a good and highly-advanced man; the thought-forms sent against him cannot injure him, and they rebound against their projectors, shattering them mentally, morally, or physically. Several such instances are well known to members of the Theosophical Society, having come under their direct observation.

“So long as any of the coarser kinds of matter connected with evil and selfish thoughts remain in a person’s body, he is open to attack from those who wish him evil, but when he has perfectly eliminated these by self-purification his haters cannot injure him, and he goes on calmly and peacefully amid all the darts of their malice. But it is bad for those who shoot out such darts.” –Annie Besant (2)

I Am of the Stars
