  • THEOSOPHIST ARTHUR E. POWELL’S COMPILATION ON THE NATURE SPIRITS

Dear Ones,

I have found very interesting information on nature spirits amongst the writings of the School of Theosophy. For some of this, one must go to the source, as it is still under copyright. As well, I have found a good source of information, from C.W. Leadbeater of the School of Theosophy, regarding the nature spirits, that is in the public domain. In the below excerpt, I have bolded what seemed more important from my own perspective …

THEOSOPHIST C.W. LEADBEATER ON NATURE SPIRITS

3. Nature-Spirits of all Kinds.

“So many and so varied are the subdivisions of this class that to do them anything like justice one would need to devote a separate treatise to this subject alone. Some characteristics, however, they all have in common, and it will be sufficient here to try to give some idea of those.

“To begin with, we have to realize that we are here dealing with entities which differ radically from all that we have hitherto considered.

“Though we may rightly classify the elemental essence and the animal Kâmarûpa as non-human, the monadic essence which manifests itself through them will, nevertheless, in the fullness of time, evolve to the level of manifesting itself through some future humanity comparable to our own, and if we were able to look back through countless ages on our own evolution in previous manvantaras, we should find that that which is now ourselves has passed on its upward path through similar stages.

“That, however, is not the case with the vast kingdom of nature-spirits; they neither have been, nor ever will be, members of a humanity such as ours; their line of evolution is entirely different, and their [p. 58] only connection with us consists in our temporary occupancy of the same planet.

“Of course since we are neighbours for the time being we owe neighbourly kindness to one another when we happen to meet, but our lines of development differ so widely that each can do but little for the other.

“Many writers have included these spirits among the elementals, and indeed they are the elementals (or perhaps, to speak more accurately, the animals) of a higher evolution.

“Though much more highly developed than our elemental essence, they have yet certain characteristics in common with it; for example, they also are divided into seven great classes, inhabiting respectively the same seven states of matter already mentioned as permeated by the corresponding varieties of the essence.

“Thus, to take those which are most readily comprehensible to us, there are spirits of the earth, water, air, and fire (or ether)—definite intelligent astral entities residing and functioning in each of those media.

“It may be asked how it is possible for any kind of creature to inhabit the solid substance of a rock, or of the crust of the earth. The answer is that since the nature-spirits are formed of astral matter, the substance of the rock is no hindrance to their motion or their vision, and furthermore physical matter in its solid state is their natural element—the only one to which they are accustomed and in which they feel at home.

“The same is of course true of those who live in water, air or ether. In medieval literature, these earth-spirits are often called gnomes, while the water-spirits are spoken of as ûndinés, the air-spirits as sylphs, and the ether-spirits as salamanders.

“In popular language they are known by many names—fairies, pixies, elves, brownies, peris, djinns [jinns], trolls, satyrs, fauns, kobolds, imps, goblins, good people, etc.—some of these titles being applied only to one variety … [p 59] and others indiscriminately to all.

Their forms are many and various, but most frequently human in shape and somewhat diminutive in size. Like almost all inhabitants of the astral plane, they are able to assume any appearance at will, but they undoubtedly have definite forms of their own, or perhaps we should rather say favourite forms, which they wear when they have no special object in taking any other. Of course under ordinary conditions they are not visible to physical sight at all, but they have the power of making themselves so by materialization when they wish to be seen.

“There are an immense number of subdivisions or races among them, and individuals of these subdivisions differ in intelligence and disposition precisely as human beings do.

“The great majority of them apparently prefer to avoid man altogether; his habits and emanations are distasteful to them, and the constant rush of astral currents set up by his restless, ill-regulated desires disturbs and annoys them.

“On the other hand instances are not wanting in which nature-spirits have as it were made friends with human beings and offered them such assistance as lay in their power, as in the well-known stories told of the Scotch brownies or of the fire-lighting fairies mentioned in spiritualistic literature.

“This helpful attitude, however, is comparatively rare, and in most cases when they come in contact with man they either show indifference or dislike, or else take an impish delight in deceiving him and playing childish tricks upon him.

“Many a story illustrative of this curious characteristic may be found among the village gossip of the peasantry in almost any lonely mountainous district, and any one who has been in the habit of attending séances for physical phenomena will recollect instances of practical joking and silly though usually good-natured horseplay, which always indicate the presence of … [p 60] some of the lower orders of the nature-spirits.

“They are greatly assisted in their tricks by the wonderful power which they possess of casting a glamour over [that is, hypnosis or mesmerization of] those who yield themselves to their influence, so that such victims for the time see and hear only what these fairies impress upon them, exactly as the mesmerized subject sees, hears, feels and believes whatever the magnetizer wishes.

“The nature-spirits, however, have not the mesmerizer’s power of dominating the human will, except in the case of quite unusually weak-minded people, or of those who allow themselves to fall into such a condition of helpless terror that their will is temporarily in abeyance; they cannot go beyond deception of the senses, but of that art they are undoubted masters, and cases are not wanting in which they have cast their glamour over a considerable number of people at once. It is by invoking their aid in the exercise of this peculiar power that some of the most wonderful feats of the Indian jugglers are performed—the entire audience being in fact hallucinated and made to imagine that they see and hear a whole series of events which have not really taken place at all.

“We might almost look upon the nature-spirits as a kind of astral humanity, but for the fact that none of them—not even the highest possess a permanent reincarnating individuality.

“Apparently therefore one point in which their line of evolution differs from ours is that a much greater proportion of intelligence is developed before permanent individualization takes place; but of the stages through which they have passed, and those through which they have yet to pass, we can know little.

“The life-periods of the different subdivisions vary greatly, some being quite short, others much longer than our human lifetime. We stand so entirely outside such a life as theirs that it is impossible for us to understand much about its conditions; but it appears on … [p 61] the whole to be a simple, joyous, irresponsible kind of existence, much such as a party of happy children might lead among exceptionally favourable physical surroundings.

“Though tricky and mischievous, they are rarely malicious unless provoked by some unwarrantable intrusion or annoyance; but as a body they also partake to some extent of the universal feeling of distrust for man, and they generally seem inclined to resent somewhat the first appearance of a neophyte on the astral plane, so that he usually makes their acquaintance under some unpleasant or terrifying form. If, however, he declines to be frightened by any of their freaks, they soon accept him as a necessary evil and take no further notice of him, while some among them may even after a time become friendly and manifest pleasure on meeting him.

Some among the many subdivisions of this class are much less childlike and more dignified than those we have been describing, and it is from these sections that the entities who have sometimes been reverenced under the name of wood-gods, or local village-gods, have been drawn. Such entities would be quite sensible of the flattery involved in the reverence shown to them, would enjoy it, and would no doubt be quite ready to do any small service they could in return. (The village-god is also often an artificial entity, but that variety will be considered in its appropriate place.)

The Adept knows how to make use of the services of the nature-spirits when he requires them, but the ordinary magician can obtain their assistance only by processes either of invocation or evocation—that is, either by attracting their attention as a suppliant and making some kind of bargain with them, or by endeavouring to set in motion influences which would compel their obedience.

“Both methods are extremely undesirable, and the latter is also excessively dangerous, as the operator would arouse a determined hostility … [p 62] which might prove fatal to him. Needless to say, no one studying occultism under a qualified Master would ever be permitted to attempt anything of the kind at all.”

THEOSOPHIST ARTHUR E. POWELL’S COMPILATION ON THE NATURE SPIRITS

There is more comprehensive information regarding astral entities, drawn mostly from the above source, in this book, a compilation by Arthur Powell from the School of Theosophy …

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 XX: Astral Entities: Non-Human,” section “3. Nature Spirits of All Kinds,” pp. 179-184.

However, the book is under copyright, so I cannot offer quotes here. I suggest reading the chapter. See especially the description of the sylphs as having human-like intelligence. Apparently, they can individualize through loving the astral angels.

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.”

–The above two sections are from … Citation: “A Textbook of Theosophy,” by C.W. Leadbeater, 1912, Chapter VI.

Mental Stories and Physical Sensation . by Alice B. Clagett

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

Here is a soundtrack recorded in Hawaii in May of 2015. The recording is about astral communication, mental stories, and physical sensation. How our minds create the illusion of cause and effect. What the world ‘really’ looks like. After the soundtrack is an edited Summary …

SOUNDTRACK BY ALICE

 

SUMMARY OF THE SOUNDTRACK

Good Morning, Everyone.

I am going to begin on a topic that most likely is going to require some future development. It is a very promising topic.

I was sitting in kirtan last night … Krishna Das’s kirtan … https://krishnadas.com/ … and before that, a wonderful performance of Hawaiian ceremonies by Lei’ohu Ryder and Maydeen Iao … hula and drumming. [sound of myna birds chirping]

So I was sitting in kirtan, and I was being bothered by dialogue. It was mostly emotion-laden dialogue, that I did not mentally approve of, between me and other people not there.

I got to thinking about a passage in Arthur Powell’s book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena” …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965

One of the things that they said was that, when we feel something in our body … a sensation … either we feel something, or kinesthetically feel something, or see something … some sensory input … just before that, the instant before that, the mental mind has the ability to begin with a story … a narrative … in response to the sensory stimulus that is about to occur.

When I read that I realized that the stories that have been playing out in my mental mind on the astral plane [4D] in the last few years, in conjunction with other people’s emotional body responses … call and response … these stories arise from sensations in my body.

So during a kirtan [one of Krishna Das’s sacred chanting performances], what I tried, with an amazing effect, was to feel the sensation in my body, and notice the story arising, and stick with the sensation in my body instead of turning my attention to the train of thought thus engendered.

So what happened then, without the train of thought … I could vaguely feel the kinesthetics … the movement of energy in my brain from the thought train … or elsewhere. It could be anywhere. It could be in my throat chakra. It could be in any of my chakras or any place in my body, that the thought was expressing itself. Or in my auric field. But I kept my attention on the swirling of energy in my auric egg, instead of on the cause and effect, the call and response, of the mental world.

And what happened was, first, my visual input changed, and I could not really distinguish objects in the usual way … on the stage, for instance. Everything became kind of jumbled up, disorganized. Actually, just like the swirling colors of my auric body, everything that I saw was constantly changing and melding.

So what I am thinking is that this step into the kinesthetic … into the actual sensory stimulus, and away from the train of thought, is a step through a Veil. From the mental body, into the astral world. So I suggest trying it, because the mental body is like a net of cause and effect that constrains our perception of the truth, of true reality. It is rather Zen-like. I think many realizations await this kind of meditative endeavor. We will see.

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

Instantaneous Egoic Dramatization vs Astral Stories vs Co-Creation of New Life on New Earth . by Alice B. Clagett

  • THE EGO AND INSTANTANEOUS DRAMATIZATION
  • INSTANTANEOUS DRAMATISATION IN A SYMBOLIC FASHION DURING ASTRAL TRAVEL

Dear Ones,

ON QUELLING ASTRAL STORIES AND PERSONAL DAYDREAMS THROUGH ATTENTION TO PHYSICAL SENSATIONS

I am working with a solution to the below. When I feel a thought arising, and an ‘astral story’ beginning, I turn my attention to the bodily sensation that caused the ‘story’ to begin. Then I keep my Awareness on the swirling energies of bodily sensation as they arise. So far, so good.

I have noticed it helps to ask my nature spirits to help me with this. They have a mission to help me fulfill my desires. I have explained that I do not desire to talk with other people on the astral plane. Rather, I enjoy silence, and I like to be around them too. I love them very much. They said: Oh, that’s what you want!

Everyone on the astral plane has a name. Mine is Dharm Darshan Kaur. It is important for everyone to know their own true name on the astral plane. If you do not know yours, you can ask the nature spirits.

Then, ask the nature spirits to say this to incoming thought forms: “_______  [your true name] does not want to talk to you.” This they have done for me, and it has been a big help in curtailing my personal ‘astral stories’ or ‘daydreams’.

THE EGO AND INSTANTANEOUS DRAMATIZATION

There is a description here, of a habit the untrained ego may have. The School of Theosophy terms this habit ‘instantaneous dramatisation …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 …  “Chapter X: Dreams,” page 101, second full paragraph beginning “(2) The ego …” through the third full paragraph ending “…ceases for him.”

This faculty is described, in the above excerpt, as a means by which touch or sound triggers us to create a story of an event. Somehow the person becomes confused into thinking that this artificial construct is a true experience he or she has had.

INSTANTANEOUS DRAMATISATION IN A SYMBOLIC FASHION DURING ASTRAL TRAVEL

Here is a further explanation of the faculty of instantaneous dramatisation, in the context of astral travel as a ‘helper’. In this case this faculty is seen as a symbolic representation of things happening in the physical world …

“In other cases [of astral travel] what is remembered is not at all what really happened, but rather a sort of symbolic description of it, sometimes quite elaborate and poetical. This comes evidently from the image-making characteristic of the ego — his faculty of instantaneous dramatization — and it sometimes happens that the symbol is recollected without its key; it comes through untranslated, as it were, so that unless the helper has a more experienced friend at hand to explain matters, he may have only a vague idea of what he has really done. A good instance of this came before my notice many years ago — so many that, as I made no record of it at the time; I am not now quite certain of one or two of its points, and am therefore obliged to omit some of it, and make it a little less interesting than I think it really was.

“The helper came to me one morning to relate an exceedingly vivid dream which he felt sure was in reality something more than a dream. He remembered having seen a certain young lady drowning in the sea. I believe that he had the impression that she had been intentionally thrown in, though I do not think that he had any vision of the person who was supposed to have done this. He himself could not directly assist her, as he was present only in the astral body, and did not know how to materialise himself; but his keen sense of the imminence of the peril gave him strength to impress the idea of danger upon the young lady’s lover, and to bring him to the scene, when he at once plunged in and brought her ashore, delivering her into the arms of her father. The helper remembered the faces of all these three characters quite clearly, and was able so to describe them that they were afterwards readily recognisable. The helper begged me to look into this case, so that he might know how far his clear remembrance was reliable.

“On doing so, I found to my surprise that the whole story was symbolic, and that the facts which had really occurred were of a different nature. The young lady was motherless, and lived practically alone with her father. She seems to have been rich as well as beautiful, and no doubt there were various aspirants to her hand. Our story, however, has to do only with two of these; one, a most estimable but bashful young fellow of the neighbourhood, who had adored her since childhood, had grown up in friendly relations with her, and had in fact the usual half-understood, half-implied engagement which belongs to a boy-and-girl love affair. The other was a person distinctly of the adventurer type, handsome and dashing and captivating on the surface, but in reality a fortune-hunter of false and unreliable type. She was dazzled by his superficial brilliancy, and easily persuaded herself that her attraction for him was real affection, and that her previous feelings of comradeship for her boy friend amounted to nothing.

“Her father, however, was much more clear-sighted than she, and when the adventurer was presented to him he seems to have received him with marked coolness, and declined altogether, though kindly enough, to sanction his daughter’s marriage with a gentleman of whom he knew nothing. This was a great blow to the young lady, and the adventurer, meeting her in secret, easily persuaded her that she was a terribly ill-used and misunderstood person, that her father was quite unbearably tyrannical and ridiculously old-fashioned, that the only thing left for her to do as a girl of spirit was to show that she meant what she said by eloping with him (the aforesaid adventurer) after which of course the father would come round to a more sensible view of life, and the future would take on the rosiest of hues.

“The foolish girl believed him, and he gradually worked upon her feelings until she consented; and the particular night upon which our friend the helper came upon the scene was that which had been chosen for the elopement. In true melodramatic style the adventurer was waiting round the corner with a carriage, and the girl was in her room hurriedly preparing herself to slip out and join him.

“Not unnaturally, when it came actually to the point her mind was much disturbed, and she found it very difficult to take the final step. It was this fluttering of the mind, this earnest desire for aid in decision, which attracted the notice of the helper as he was drifting casually by. Reading her thoughts, he quickly grasped the situation, and at once began to try to influence her against the rash step which she contemplated. Her mind, however, was in such a condition that he was unable to impress himself upon her as he wished, and he looked round in great anxiety for someone who should prove more amenable to his influence. He tried to seize upon the father, but he was engaged in his library in some literary work of so engrossing a character that it proved impossible to attract his attention.

“Fortunately, however, the half-forgotten lover of her youth happened to be within reach, wandering about in the starlight and looking up at her window in the approved style of young lovers all the world over. The helper pounced upon him, seeing the condition of his sentiments, and to his great delight found him more receptive. His deep love made him anxious, and it was easy enough to influence him to walk far enough to see the carriage and the adventurer in waiting around the corner. His affection quickened his wits, and he instantly grasped the situation, and was filled with horror and dismay. To do him justice, at that supreme moment it was not of himself that he thought, not that he was on the eve of losing her, but that she was on the eve of throwing herself away and ruining the whole of her future life. In his excitement he forgot all about convention; he made his way into the house (for he had known the place since childhood), rushed up the stairs and met her at the door of her room.

“The words which he said to her neither he nor she can remember now, but in wild and earnest pleading he besought her to think before doing this terrible thing, to realise clearly into what an abyss she was about to throw herself, to bethink herself well before entering upon the path of destruction, and at least, before doing anything more, to consult openly with the loving father whom she was requiting so ill for his ceaseless care of her.

“The shock of his sudden appearance and the fervour of his objurgations awakened her as from a sort of trance; and she offered scarcely any resistance when he dragged her off then and there to her father as he sat working in his library. The astonishment of the father may be imagined, when the story was unfolded before him. He had had not the slightest conception of his daughter’s attitude, and she herself, now that the spell was shaken off, could not imagine how she had ever been able really to contemplate such a step. Both she and her father overflowed with gratitude to the loyal young lover, and before he left her that night she had ratified the old childish engagement, and promised to be his wife at no remote date.

“This was what had really happened, and one can see that the symbolism chosen by the ego of the helper was by no means inapt, however misleading it may have been as to the actual facts.”

UNCONSCIOUS COLLECTIVE ASTRAL STORIES NOW CIRCULATING THROUGH THE NOOSPHERE

In the same way, astral stories, often produced by a number of people, or through the fathomless seas of the unconscious and conscious thought clouds of the world, are assailing the newly clair legions of ascending humankind.

PROPHECY THAT ASTRAL STORIES WILL RISE TO COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS AND ALLOW HUMANKIND TO CO-CREATE NEW LIFE ON NEW EARTH

It could be that, just as the people described in the above excerpt eventually rise above spontaneous dramatization, so shall the people of New Earth rise to only the most conscious, and conscientious, visualizations. In so doing, they may co-create New Life on New Earth.

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

I have been searching for a while now for descriptions of the seven sub-planes of the Astral Plane. I have found some pretty good information in “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965.

However, this information is spread out, hither and yon, in the book. As this book is under copyright, I cannot quote snippets of text in the blog, out of legal concern. However, I will offer a little information from School of Theosophy sources that are in the public domain, along with page citations of copyrighted information that can be consulted by those who have copies of the book.

………

Another way to cover most of the material on the various sub-planes, would be to read …

At the end of the blog is an explanation of travel from one sub-plane to another, which is useful in an Ascension context, as the Awareness of humankind expands from the merely physical, out into the astral plane, and beyond, to the fifth dimension, the Kingdom of God, where Christed and Buddhic consciousness abide.

Now, on to the compilation on the seven astral planes, according to the School of Theosophy …

………………………………………………
THE SEVEN ASTRAL PLANES

“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. Putting aside for the moment the seventh, we may say that divisions 4, 5 and 6 of the astral plane have for their background the physical world we live in and all its familiar accessories.

“Life on the sixth division is simply our ordinary life on this earth, minus the physical body and its necessities; while as it ascends through the fifth and fourth divisions it becomes less and less material, and is more and more withdrawn from our lower world and its interests.”

This excerpt from the book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena” describes how far out from Earth the astral world reaches …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … p 146, second paragraph, beginning “The outer limit …” and ending “… sub-lunar world.”

LOWEST ASTRAL SUB-PLANE

The Seventh Astral Sub-Plane

This excerpt from same book describes the seventh astral sub-plane, the Hellworlds …

Ibid,, p 146, fourth paragraph, beginning “Sub-plane 7 …” through the fifth paragraph ending “… own creation.”

Here is more on the topic, from the public domain …

“Most students find the investigation of this section an extremely unpleasant task, for there appears to be a sense of density and gross materiality about it which is indescribably loathsome to the liberated astral body, causing it the sense of pushing its way through some black, viscous fluid [17] while the inhabitants and influences encountered there are also usually exceedingly undesirable.”

……………………………………………………………
THE HIGHER ASTRAL SUB-PLANES

“The first, second, and third subdivisions seem much further removed from this physical world, and correspondingly less material. Entities inhabiting these levels lose sight of the earth and its belongings; they are usually deeply self-absorbed, and to a large extent create their own surroundings, though these are not purely subjective, as in Devachan [the Heaven Worlds], but on the contrary sufficiently objective to be perceptible to other entities and also to clairvoyant vision.

“This region is beyond doubt the ‘summerland’ of which we hear so much at spiritualistic séances, and the entities who descend from and describe it are probably often speaking the truth as far as their knowledge extends.

“It is on these planes that ‘spirits’ call into temporary existence their houses, schools, and cities, for these objects are often real enough for the time, though to a clearer sight they may sometimes be pitiably unlike what their delighted creators suppose them to be.

“Nevertheless, many of the imaginations that take form there are of real though temporary beauty, and a visitor who knew of nothing higher might wander contentedly enough there among forests and mountains, lovely lakes and pleasant flower-gardens, or might even construct such surroundings to suit his own fancies.”

………………………………………………………………………….
TRAVEL AMONG THE ASTRAL SUB-PLANES

Here is an explanation of navigating among the various astral sub-planes that I found very interesting. Apparently this has to do with transforming one’s Awareness, rather than movement through space …

Ibid,, p 110, first full paragraph, beginning “When we …” ending “… upon him.”

This is useful in an Ascension context, as our Awareness is expanding outward from the Material Plane (that is, the plane of physical reality), into the Plane of Forces, from thence into the Astral Plane, and thence on into the fifth dimension, the Kingdom of God, where Christed and Buddhic consciousness abide.

According to the above excerpt, expansion of Awareness into the loftier astral realms depends on a person’s ability to change his astral rate of vibration. This is done, according to the teachings of today’s Ascension workers, through creation of loftier emotions, such as love, faith, trust, and joy. The ability to create emotions ‘on the spot’ is a new skill for us humans … it requires diligent practice. See …

Link: “Golden Triangle: Purifying the Third Eye Point,” by Alice B, Clagett, http://wp.me/p2Rkym-3nc ..

We must all ‘learn the ropes’ of the seven astral planes, whether those of the Hellworlds (sub-plane 7, the lowest astral sub-planes); the Purgatory Worlds (sub-planes 6 through 4; the intermediate astral sub-planes); and the Heaven Worlds (sub-planes 3 through 1, which heretofore were the very loftiest abodes of human consciousness).

Once we have this power of astral navigation at hand in our clair ‘tool belts’, it will be much easier to communicate with our Ascension team members in the higher dimensions, and to help those still learning astral navigation skills without getting mired down in ‘sticky wicket’ situations.

Another caveat: It is important to master timeline skills, in case we find ourselves in Hellworld situations that are difficult to pierce through. For this, see my blog category: Timelines – multitemporality – alternate universes – fractals 

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

Baptismal Sylph . a story by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

When a child is baptized, a sylph … a type of nature spirit known as an elemental of the air …  attaches itself to the child, in the area of the child’s heart, and in the form of a fiery white cross. Under special conditions, that sylph can … all in a flash! …  be transformed to a seraph, an angel. In this way the sylph attains what is termed, in the School of Theosophy, ‘individualization’.  For more on this, see …

Link: “Baptism and Sign of the Cross to Protect the Heart,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 5 December 2014; revised…  https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7NM ..

STORY OF THE TRANSFORMATION OF MY BAPTISMAL SYLPH TO A SERAPH

This transformation is something that happened to my baptismal sylph; it is an experience that I will never forget.

The vast display of Christed love and Light, as the sylph is transformed to an angelic presence in the heart of the devout Christian, is almost blinding, to the astral eye, in intensity … the more so when hymns are played, and sung with devotion. There is nothing like devotional music, sung from the heart, to spark the fiery love of the great and vastly beautiful beings of the Angelic Realm.

On the negative side, I  remember being escorted out of a spirit-filled Christian church by two burly ushers, who backed me up against the exterior church wall, so that the pastor of the church could condemn me as being possessed by Satan.  For a while, I was upset about my experience with that church, especially in light of the wonderful feeling of loving Christ consciousness I was then feeling. I found out later, though, that another person had a similar experience at that church, and so I began to feel my experience with them in a less personal way.

Viewed philosophically, I feel that great displays of Light on Earth are always countered by great displays of Dark. In this way, Earth maintains her balance of Light and Dark. For more on this, see my blog categories: Descent of Light and grace  …  Descent of the Dark  …  Dark Attacks  … and …  Balance

SPONTANEOUS MUDRAS OR KRIYAS AS MANIFESTATIONS OF THE DESCENT OF GRACE

The transformation of my baptismal sylph into a seraph was accompanied by spontaneous, healing mudras or kriyas, healing of the congregation by the angel throngs, and a descent of grace that I would be hard put to describe.

Spontaneous mudras or kriyas … that is, spontaneous movements of the fingers or body … although well understood in Eastern religions, are little understood in the West. Among Indian saints who evidenced spontaneous mudras or kriyas, one of the best known and most deeply loved was Anadamay Ma. For more about her, see …

Link: “Anandamayi Ma, Ecstatic Saint,”  by Andres, in Mahasara School of Meditation … https://mahasarameditation.com/anandamayi-ma/ ..

It is likely that Christ also used spontaneous mudras or kriyas in blessing the crowds of people that gathered around him, as there are many portraits of him using mudras. One that I like very much is the mudra with two upraised fingers, which blessed his followers with Divine understanding …

LET US STAND IN FAITH, THROUGH CHRIST’S LOVE, WHEN THE DESCENT OF GRACE LIGHTS UP THE SHADOW WORLD AROUND US

Like the Pentecostal Christian phenomenon of talking in tongues, spontaneous mudras and kriyas take place with the Descent of Grace. When such grace and Light descend, then the Darkness in each of us, and in the air around us … here in the realms of Duality … is cast into bold relief. Through the Light of Angelic presence, we begin to see, with great clarity, the Darkness of the Demon Realm.

And so it was, at the spirit-filled church I was attending, some years ago, here in Los Angeles. Especially for those ‘in control’ in a congregation … the pastor, the prophets, the altar guild, the ushers, and so on … the challenge arises to join with Christ and with the Angel Realm, and to overcome any fear they may feel of the newly discovered Dark; to work together, as a congregation, in the Light of Christ’s Love.

I expect this challenge will arise more and more, all over Earth, in the coming years.

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

The Truth about Heaven, Hell and Purgatory . references to Theosophy . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Created on 10 July 2013; revised on 6 May 2018

  • WHAT IS THE TRUTH ABOUT HEAVEN AND HELL?
  • KAMALOKA: THE DESIRE WORLD OF THEOSOPHY
    • Grossness in the Astral Body
    • Hell, Purgatory, and Limbo
  • DEVACHAN: THE HEAVEN WORLDS ON THE HIGHER MENTAL PLANE

Dear Ones,

Here are references to teachings about the Afterlife from the School of Theosophy, along with comments by me to do with Ascension …

WHAT IS THE TRUTH ABOUT HEAVEN AND HELL?

The Theosophist William Walker Atkinson (aka Swami Panchadasi) describes how very different are the beliefs among the major religions of the world, regarding the afterlife. Some describe heaven, or hell, or purgatory, or limbo. Others speak of a great sleep, on passing, until the Day of Judgment at the end of the world …

Citation: “The Astral World: Its Scenes, Dwellers, and Phenomena,” by William Walker Atkinson, “Chapter VI. Disembodied Souls,”    … from the fifth full paragraph beginning “Let us move …” through the second sentence in the seventh paragraph, ending “… all the truth.”

Theosophists have a different, and I feel, in some instances, a far more hopeful and heart-settling set of teachings. They feel that Souls do sort, on the astral plane, after passing from physical form. But all Souls eventually slip into sleep in the Heaven Worlds of the Afterlife after their Astral Work in the Afterlife is done.

KAMALOKA: THE DESIRE WORLD OF THEOSOPHY

The Astral Work referred to here is that in which Souls, after passing on from physical incarnation, experience Kamaloka …  the ‘Desire World’ … as it is termed in the School of Theosophy. The work that is done is to purify the astral body, removing the dross of dissonant energies. This may take only a little time, or very much longer.

Grossness in the Astral Body. The type of experience a Soul has during this Astral interval depends on the relative grossness or refinement of its astral body … or as we say in an Ascension context, the distortions in its body of Light. These are referred to in Hindu texts as the samskaras, or by Judy Satori …  https://judysatori.com/ … as karmic miasmic patterning or morphogenetic field distortions.

Hell, Purgatory, and Limbo. In terms of the Christian faith, a person who has led a very sinful life on Earth, might well have experiences in Kamaloka that are like the Christian notion of Hell. A person who has led a reasonable life on Earth … though not particularly religious or spiritual … might experience what some Christian faiths term Purgatory. A child who passes on before the age of reason, or a person who has led a saintly or spiritual life, might experience only a little time in a state some Christian faiths term Limbo.

There is quite a good explanation of the astral afterlife, according to the School of Theosophy, here …

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 XIII: After-Death Life: Principles,” pp. 112-119.

The following two chapters are also quite informative. These are “Chapter XIV: The After-Death Life: Particulars,” pp. 120-135, and “Chapter XV: The After-Death Life: Special Cases,” pp. 136-143.

Here is a brief overview of the Soul’s afterlife stay in Kamaloka, the Desire World …

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 XXIII. Astral Death,” p 204, from paragraph 1, beginning “We have now …” through paragraph 4, ending: ” heaven-world.”

DEVACHAN: THE HEAVEN WORLDS ON THE HIGHER MENTAL PLANE

When, during the astral interval, the astral body has been purified of impure feelings and desires, a residue of desire, or kama, is left behind in Kamaloka. The higher ego (the true ‘I’) becomes free to pass on to a very different form of afterlife experience …  that of the Heaven Worlds, which, in Theosophy, are termed Devachan.

The Theosophists feel that all Souls eventually rise from the Hellworlds, Purgatory Worlds, or Limbo they were experiencing on the Astral Plane, to Devachan, the Heaven Worlds. Theirs, then is a more hopeful notion than that professed by many major religions.

In Devachan, those who passed on with desires to accomplish creative work (such as to create a great piece of music) or to exist in a paradise, or to be in a congregation of Souls of their own religion, or to accomplish intellectual or scientific work, can live out their dreams, till their desires to do these things fades. In addition, the work these Souls do in Devachan can be carried forward with them into a new incarnation, and so may aid the development of humankind.

At times, too, disembodied Souls in Devachan may be may offer their creative work as a gift to aspiring creative artists on the physical plane … They become the ‘creative muses’ for these Earth-bound artists.

There is a good, brief summary of the Devachan experience, from the Theosophical perspective, here …

Citation: “The Astral World: Its Scenes, Dwellers, and Phenomena,” by William Walker Atkinson, published 20 January 2000 by Book Tree … “Chapter IX: Higher Planes and Beyond,” paragraph 11, beginning “I wish here …” through paragraph 13, ending “…follow the gleam!”

Here is a more detailed description of Devachan, from the Theosophical perspective …

Citation: “The Mental Body,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, The Theosophical Publishing House Limited, London, Great Britain, 1927 … “Chapter XX: Devachan: Principles,” pp 171-184.

These chapters in the same book are also well worth reading: “Chapter XXI: Devachan: Length and Intensity,” pp. 185-190, and “Chapter XXII: Devachan: Further Particulars,” pp. 191-205.

The four chapters following these … pp. 206-220 … describe the four lower levels (there are 7 in all) of the heaven planes. These are numbered ‘backwards’ … The first and lowest level is termed the ‘seventh sub-plane’. The second, which is a little higher, is termed the ‘sixth sub-plane’ … and so on.

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

Dear Ones,

PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF IMPURE DIET AND DANGER OF IMPINGEMENT BY ASTRAL BEINGS

Eating meat, drinking alcohol, using recreational drugs, and using tobacco can cause a health imbalance when a person is also pursuing higher consciousness. As the person seeks higher consciousness, and attempts to refine his astral matter, the diet has the opposite effect of coarsening the astral matter. These two things … the pursuit of higher consciousness and the coarsening diet … are opposed to each other, and place the spirit and physical form in conflict. To me, they indicate imperfect purpose.

The below-referenced School of Theosophy text describes how meat, alcohol, recreational drugs, and nicotine clog and poison the body, and coarsen both the physical and the astral body.

This text also describes how the impure physical body is crowded round … even ‘shelled up’ or ‘encased’ by the elementaries … which are the astral form taken by depraved men who have passed on, and are now roaming about the astral plane … and by loathsome artificial elementals.

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 … See “Chapter VII: Physical Life,” from page 64, third full paragraph, beginning “I. The Physical …” to page 65, first full paragraph, ending “.. the lower planes.”

I was particularly impressed by the description of how the astral form of a deceased drunkard intent on indulging in that vice, may partially thrust itself into the physical body of a drunk person who is in physical form, and whose own will no longer suffices to ward off such evil …

EFFECT OF IMPURE DIET AND SENSUALITY ON THE EARLY AFTERLIFE

In the same book, here is a description of how drunkenness and indulgence in sensuality during a person’s physical life affect the astral body after the person passes on. Apparently, the person’s cravings are greatly increased when the physical body is let go upon death. In the afterlife, his Awareness at first exists within the astral body … the desire body, as it is termed. Desires that had been nurtured and sated while in physical form are felt with greatest longing in the afterlife. In Kama-Loka, the ‘place of desire’, the newly passed on person feels naught but the burning thirst of desire, for which satiety is an impossible dream. Thus, on the astral plane, until the astral form of the deceased drunkard or sensualist is cleansed of the burning thirst of desire, the fires of hell are everywhere …

Here is a similar description, that I like very much, on this topic. This is from “A Textbook of Theosophy” by the Theosophist C. W. Leadbeater …

“The conditions of life after death are almost infinite in their variety, but they can be calculated without difficulty by any one who will take the trouble to understand the astral world and to consider the character of the person concerned. That character is not in the slightest degree changed by death; the man’s thoughts, emotions and desires are exactly the same as before. He is in every way the same man, minus his physical body; and his happiness or misery depends upon the extent to which this loss of the physical body affects him.

“If his longings have been such as need a physical body for their gratification, he is likely to suffer considerably. Such a craving manifests itself as a vibration in the astral body, and while we are still in this world most of its strength is employed in setting in motion the heavy physical particles. Desire is therefore a far greater force in the astral life than in the physical, and if the man has not been in the habit of controlling it, and if in this new life it cannot be satisfied, it may cause him great and long-continued trouble.

“Take as an illustration the extreme case of a drunkard or a sensualist. Here we have a lust which has been strong enough during physical life to overpower reason, common sense and all the feelings of decency and of family affection. After death the man finds himself in the astral world feeling the appetite perhaps a hundred times more strongly, yet absolutely unable to satisfy it because he has lost the physical body. Such a life is a very real hell—the only hell there is; yet no one is punishing him; he is reaping the perfectly natural result of his own action. Gradually as time passes this force of desire wears out, but only at the cost of terrible suffering for the man, because to him every day seems as a thousand years. He has no measure of time such as we have in the physical world. He can measure it only by his sensations. From a distortion of this fact has come the blasphemous idea of eternal damnation.

“Many other cases less extreme than this will readily suggest themselves, in which a hankering which cannot be fulfilled may prove itself a torture. A more ordinary case is that of a man who has no particular vices, such as drink or sensuality, but yet has been attached entirely to things of the physical world, and has lived a life devoted to business or to aimless social functions. For him the astral world is a place of weariness; the only thing for which he craves are no longer possible for him, for in the astral world there is no business to be done, and, though he may have as much companionship as he wishes, society is now for him a very different matter, because all the pretences upon which it is usually based in this world are no longer possible.

“These cases, however, are only the few, and for most people the state after death is much happier than life upon earth.” –from Link: “A Textbook of Theosophy,” by C. W. Leadbeater. (2004).

ON PURIFYING THE ASTRAL BODY BEFORE PASSING ON

I can recommend several ways to attempt to purify the astral body, while still alive, of the effects of impure diet and excessive sensuality.

Pure Diet

The first way is, quite naturally, to form a habit of eating and drinking pure foods. I like especially this diet …

Burning Off Astral Impurities in the Astral Body Using Sound

Aethos Sound Meditation by Tom Kenyon. I have had great success with this healing song by Tom Kenyon. I realize the purpose of the meditation is greater than this, but my own experience is that it does burn off astral impurities as well.

Here is an explanation of the meditation, that includes a link to the meditation near the end of the web page …

Regenesis CD by Judy Satori. I have also had great success with the soundtracks on this CD, which include three very brief songs to revitalize the subtle bodies on waking up, at midday, and before retiring for the evening. There is a fourth song to promote cellular restoration …

Kundalini Yoga for Tapa (Psychic Fire or Agni) to Burn off Astral Impurities

Agni Tattva. Here is a description of Agni Tattva …

Link: “The Agni Tattva and the 3rd Chakra,” by Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) …  https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/health-and-healing/agni-tattva-3rd-chakra ..

Breath of Fire. I suggest doing Breath of Fire to release the purifying fire for both physical and subtle bodies. It is best to do this breath during adulthood, and while in perfect health. It is best not done by young children, by people with blockages in the first or second chakra (see below), or by seniors. I say this because it is a very strong and purifying breath that ought to be respected for these qualities and used sensibly …

Link: “Raja Yoga Meditation for Tapa,” by Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) …  https://www.3ho.org/raja-yoga-meditation-tapa ..

Cautions: If you have a blockage of energy at the level of the first or second chakra that result in …

  • acting out murder or suicidal intention (which indicates a first chakra blockage)
  • or sexual deviations as a preferred manner of sexual expression (which indicates a second chakra blockage),

… then I feel it would be best to work with just the first chakra (in the case of murder or suicidal intentions), or with just the first and second chakras (in the case of sexual deviations) until those blockages clears.

Where there are blockages in the chakras, be gentle and patient with yourself; it may be that injuries of the human energy field that have taken place through many lifetimes are clearing. Or it could be that you have, in this lifetime or in past lifetimes, agreed to take on the aggregate karma of a group of suffering Souls. Above all, be patient with yourself, and be gentle in clearing your physical and subtle bodies.

The Intellect . by the Theosophists . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 11 December 2013; revised on 2 May 2018

  • HOW INTELLECT HOLDS SWAY FOR A TIME IN A MAN’S SOUL EVOLUTION, BEFORE AWARENESS OF SPIRIT DEVELOPS
  • INTELLECT AS A COMBATIVE, SEPARATIVE PRINCIPLE IN MAN
  • UNITY IS FELT ON ATTAINING THE BUDDHIC PLANE

Dear Ones,

Below are excerpts on the human Intellect from the book “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, “Ch. XIII. Individualisation: Its Mechanism and Purpose” …

HOW INTELLECT HOLDS SWAY FOR A TIME IN A MAN’S SOUL EVOLUTION, BEFORE AWARENESS OF SPIRIT DEVELOPS

“In the course of man’s development, the intellectual evolution must for a time obscure the spiritual evolution. The spiritual has to give way before the rush of intelligence, and retire into the background for a while, leaving intelligence to grasp the reins and guide the next stages of evolution …

“Thus for a time the spirit is obscured, maturing in silence, while the warrior intellect carries on the struggle: the time will eventually come when intellect will lay its spoils at the feet of spirit, and man, becoming divine, shall reign on ‘earth’ i.e., on the lower planes, as their master, no longer their slave ….”

INTELLECT AS A COMBATIVE, SEPARATIVE PRINCIPLE IN MAN

“The intellect is essentially the separative principle in man, that marks off the ‘I’ from the ‘not I’,  that is conscious of itself, and sees all else as outside itself and alien. It is the combative, struggling, self-assertive principle, and from the plane of the intellect downwards, the world presents a scene of conflict, bitter in proportion as the intellect mingles in it.

“Even the passion nature is spontaneously combative only when it is stirred by the feeling of desire, and finds anything standing between itself and the object of its desire. It becomes more and more aggressive, as the mind inspires its activity, for then it seeks to provide for the gratification of future desires, and tries to appropriate more and more from the stores of nature.

“But the intellect appears to be spontaneously combative, its very nature being to assert itself as different from others. Hence we find in intellect the root of separateness, the ever-springing source of divisions among men …”

UNITY IS FELT ON ATTAINING THE BUDDHIC PLANE

“Unity, on the other hand, is at once felt when the buddhic plane is reached. But with that we shall deal in a much later chapter.”

Bodies of Man . by the Theosophists . with a comment by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 1 December 2013; revised on 2 May 2018

Dear Ones,

At first I thought that Arthur E. Powell was talking about reincarnation in the passage quoted below. Now I see he is talking about the physical and subtle bodies we have in any one incarnation. These are diverse energies at play in us.

BODIES OF MAN
by Arthur E. Powell

“All the various bodies of man should be regarded as casings or vehicles, enabling the Self to function in some definite region of the universe. Just as a man may use a carriage on land, a ship on the sea, a balloon in the air, to travel from one place to another, and yet in all places remain himself, so does the Self, the real man, utilise his various bodies, each for its appropriate purposes, yet remains all the time himself no matter in what vehicle he may be functioning at any given moment. Relatively to the man, all these bodies are transient, they are his instruments or servants; they wear out and are renewed, time after time, and adapted to his varying needs, and his ever-growing powers.”

Group Thought Forms and the Glom Effect . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 16 January 2016; revised 21 March 2018 to include the information in the discarded article entitled “National, Racial, and Earthquake Artificial Elementals”

  • THOUGHT FORMS, VIVIFIED THOUGHT FORMS, AND ASTRAL ENTITIES

  • RELIGIOUS THOUGHT FORMS
    • Vision of Christ’s Crucifixion
  • HISTORICAL THOUGHT FORMS
  • NATIONAL AND RACIAL THOUGHT FORMS

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

We have the phenomenon many term the ‘collective mind’ of humankind. Within that there are a predominant portion of unconscious thoughts … which exist, like the submerged portion of an iceberg, beneath the ken of the casual seafarer.

These unconscious thoughts, generally termed the ‘collective unconscious’, I often refer to as the unconscious thought cloud of the world. Within that cloud exist other clouds of thought; for example …

  • clouds of similar emotional and/or thought content, which aggregate together … perhaps as clouds of a certain hue or density or sound current.
  • and also, the small clouds of unconscious thought forms in an individual person’s unique mini-noosphere.

Powell thinks of these clouds of thought forms which ‘aggregate together’, as forming a ‘collective entity’ or ‘artificial elementals’. In my writings, I term this phenomenon ‘the glom effect’ … see the category in my blog by that name.

With the above in mind, I offer my own further notions regarding the erudite work presented by the Theosophical teachings in this book …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, A Quest Book, 1927 (which is, I feel, a ‘must read’ for those who find this topic to be of interest). (1)

THOUGHT FORMS, VIVIFIED THOUGHT FORMS, AND ASTRAL ENTITIES

There have apparently been instances, perhaps rare, perhaps not, of people who have passed on, or of nature spirits, ‘vivifying’ these aggregate thought forms. In the case of negative thought forms, for the sake of personal protection, it would be an important step for those with clair skills is to learn the differences among …

  • a simple thought form,
  • a ‘vivified’ thought form, and
  • living entities in astral form.

(Partly derived from Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” p 55)

LITERARY THOUGHT FORMS

If a story is well known in human literature, and people think often about the characters in the story, then a survey of the astral plane will turn up thought forms that are convincingly lifelike representations of the characters. For instance, we may appear to see Ishmael, Judah Ben-Hur or Professor Moriarty on the astral plane. (partly derived from Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” pp. 53-54)

Interestingly, there have been several episodes in the Star Trek television series, in which the characters in the series interacted with such lifelike literary thought forms on the starship’s ‘holodeck’. I note that the Star Trek series often conveyed occult or high philosophical themes in the guise of popular entertainment. To continue …

These literary-character thought forms may persist on the astral plane for many generations, if a book is popular with the reading public.

(See also Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” p 54)

RELIGIOUS THOUGHT FORMS

Vision of Christ’s Crucifixion

The same can be said of religious history. For instance, on the astral plane I once witnessed, and I found myself a minor actor in, the scene of Christ’s crucifixion. And some years later, through my clair perception, I found a young person at a church service I was attending had a similar vision, in which he was a participant, but from a personal perspective different from that which I had experienced.

So, it is possible that a thought form from religious history can be so vivified by generations of fervent devotees that a person of that faith can actually ‘step into the play’, just as Captain Kirk and the members of the Starship Enterprise would step into a completely believable holographic scene.

(See also Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” p 57)

HISTORICAL THOUGHT FORMS

Great historic events, such as the landing on the beach of Normandy, because they arouse such strong emotions, and because they are constantly in the public eye through war documentaries on television, exist as thought forms on the astral plane. These thought forms have, in fact, a material existence, though the matter of which they are composed is astral rather than physical in nature. Clairvoyants often see them.

NATIONAL AND RACIAL THOUGHT FORMS

Powell sometimes uses the term ‘artificial elementals’ to describe thought forms. He expresses that they may be responsible for feelings of nationalism or racism.

Because thoughts ‘of a color’ flock together in clouds … in this case, in cloud of prejudicial thought, Powell surmises they may be automatically reproduced in crowds of people. In my blogs, I term this reproductive quality of thought forms ‘fractal dispersal’ or ‘fractal replication’.

Within the unconscious thought cloud of the world, similar thought forms aggregate in mini-noospheric, thought form ‘clouds’ around a person. It is like viewing the world through rose-colored glasses … in this case, though, the color is not rosy, but rather like the effect of cataracts on a person’s vision. For instance, like as not, a congregation of national or racial thought forms that clouds and obscures our natural perspicacity.

(See also Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” pp 54-55)

INGROUP – OUTGROUP: THE FALSE NOTION OF EGO

The thoughts of others to protect themselves and their next of kin … their ‘ingroup’ … from ‘outgroup’ people … a mental phenomenon that might as aptly be termed the Insider-Outsider Mental Filter  … is based on the false notion of ego. Of course, the notion of isolate ego has allowed the Souls who just now experienced Earth’s Age of Darkness to enact the Duality play; and so, it had a useful (though quite obviously false) role to play in this Soul Learning Experience.

EFFECT OF NEGATIVE THOUGHT FORMS: NATURAL DISASTERS, EPIDEMICS, CRIME WAVES, WARS, SOCIAL UNREST, ACCIDENTS

When aggregated or ‘glommed’ thought forms are negative or violent in nature (representing what Tom Kenyon calls ‘cognitive dissonance’) (2), they can cause …

  • In the physical realm: natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, and floods
  • In the realm of human affairs: epidemics, crime waves, wars, and social unrest.
  • In the realm of personality: minor ‘accidents’ such as tripping on the carpet or running past a stop sign, or more perilous accidents, such as by tripping or by inattention while driving.  (partly derived from  “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” A Quest Book, 1927, p 55)
  • in the realm of our subtle bodies, negative thought forms not only cloud our vision, but also alter our astral matter … perhaps for the better, perhaps for the worse, depending on the emotions associated with the thought forms. While positive thought forms refine our astral matter, negative thought forms coarsen our astral matter. (derived from Ibid., “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” pp 64-81)

DISASTERS CREATED BY MASS MEDIA

Had the early Theosophists, whose work was compiled by Arthur E. Powell, been privy to the current phenomenon of ‘mass media’, they might have observed with dismay how news reports of human violence, sadness and pain are sending out waves of destructive thought forms all day and all night. These thought forms, they might envision as impacting millions of mass media viewers simultaneously. They might sense how this ‘backward reporting’ co-creates recurrent global catastrophes of weather, economics, and societal ills. For more on this, search my blog for ‘Associated Press Mental Filter’.

We … humankind … can easily avoid this mental filter by refusing to read or hear the standard news headlines. Instead, let us turn to our co-creative ability, and ‘image’ … visualize in vivid detail … the world we want to manifest. In other words, let us report the news ‘forward’ … not the sad news of what once was experienced by humankind during the Age of Darkness.

TIMELINE OPTIMIZATION: ON TURNING APOCALYPSE TO NEW LIFE ON NEW EARTH THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE OF JOY

Dear ones, the Age of Light is here, now. Let us open our eyes to the New! As the Bible says,

4 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. –Psalm 98:4 (KJV, public domain)

In this way we can transform the thought forms of the world from negative to positive, and the timeline that we ourselves experience from apocalyptic to the tranquil scenes of New Life on New Earth.

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

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

Compiled on 27 November 2013; revised on 21 March 2018

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

Dear Ones,

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

THEOSOPHY ON INDIVIDUALISATION OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS

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

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

“We may note two factors at work:

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

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

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

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

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

INDIVIDUALISATION, INDIVIDUATION, AND ENLIGHTENMENT

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

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

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

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

Kundalini, Prana, and Fohat . by Arthur E. Powell . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Compiled on 27 Nov 2013; revised

  • KUNDALINI, PRANA, AND FOHAT
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

The below passage from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, describes three of the forces in the Plane of Forces, which includes in all six forces: electricity, gravity, magnetism, fohat, prana, and kundalini.

KUNDALINI, PRANA, AND FOHAT

Powell speaks of kundalini, prana, and fohat. Missing from this quotation are the forces of electricity, gravity and magnetism …

“…Kundalini, or the serpent-fire, which wells up from the interior of the human body, belongs to the First Outpouring, and exists on all planes of which we know anything. This force of Kundalini is, of course quite distinct from Prana or Vitality, which belongs to the Second Outpouring, and also from Fohat, i.e.., from all forms of physical energy such as electricity, light, heat, etc. (vide ‘The Etheric Double,’ ‘The Astral Body’ and ‘The Mental Body,’ passim).” (1)

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

Begun on 27 November 2013; published 13 December 2017

Dear Ones,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

THE EVOLUTION OF LIFE

Here is a Table on “The Evolution of Life” from page 44 of Arthur E. Powell’s book “The Solar System.” It gives a general notion how the devic kingdom (in the astral realm) and the human kingdom (in the physical and astral realms) are side-by-side evolving.

Link: “The Solar System,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, 1930, available at www.amazon.com …  Table: “The Evolution of Life,” p. 44 … http://minhtrietmoi.org/Theosophy/Powell/The%20Solar%20System_files/image019.jpg ..

SYLPHS, HUMANS, AND BAPTISM: SWIFT SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION

You can see Sylphs (spelled ‘Sylfs’ in the chart) just below the level of individualization in the devic realm. I don’t see Cherubim and Seraphim on the chart, but from what I’ve read they are individualized, so they must be among the Astral Devas indicated on the chart.

For a Sylph, the process of aligning with a human through baptism into Christ Consciousness (1) can result in a great leap of evolution, into the higher devic realm.

And for the human who cherishes his or her association with the Baptismal Sylph, a great evolutionary jump into higher Christ Consciousness can result.

HOW THE ELEMENTALS HELP CREATE AND NOURISH PHYSICAL LIFE ON EARTH

This is not the only way in which the devic kingdom cooperates with the human kingdom, for indeed, no life would exist on Earth were it not for the efforts of the elementals, which create and nourish not only our own human bodies, but also all plants, animals, and mineral beings on our beautiful planet.

THE SOLAR SPIRITS (THE ‘SOLAR DEVI’)

Note that the Solar Spirits (the ‘Solar Devi’) are at the very top of this chart on the evolution of life on Earth. The play of the Solar Spirits is expressed in solar flares, through which they fling creative and restorative bursts of light to all the planets and beings in our Sun’s care …

The Resurrection,” in “On the Incarnation of the Word,” public domain (1)

Dear Ones,

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS

From my youth, I remember the ‘sign of the cross’ which confers the blessing of Christ’s presence in our lives: In nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti (in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit):

Image: Young girl making the sign of the cross … https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/81a0b-fare_il_segno_della_croce.jpg ..

Video: The Sign of the Cross in Latin, by Stomping Crows … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAcokfQ3cqY ..

THE BLESSINGS CONFERRED BY BAPTISM

Arthur E. Powell has an intriguing passage to do with the ceremony of Baptism, which includes the blessing conferred by the sign of the cross.

Citation: “The Mental Body.” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, The Theosophical Publishing House Limited, London; printed by the Whitefriars Press, Ltd, Tonbridge and London, 1927 … “Chapter XXXII. Rebirth,” page 289, the first full paragraph, beginning “The ‘seeds’ …” through the second full paragraph on page 290, ending “… of Vishnu.”

According to the above passage, a child is born with seeds of evil, which the Catholic Church calls ‘original sin’. The making of the sign of the cross on a young child during the sacrament of baptism, creates an artificial elemental which is like a ‘guardian angel’. This thought form is ‘ensouled’ by a sylph.

ABOUT SYLPHS

Image: A sea sylph, http://www.selfgrowth.com/images/Detweiler_image8.JPG ..

Sylphs are air elementals, thus hard to depict. The above picture is of a Sea Sylph, but it reminds me of the Baptismal Sylph, which has the same sort of energy, but settles in the shape of a white, fiery cross onto a person’s back at the level of the heart chakra when the person is baptized …

Clagett, 15 August 2013, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward. In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. The caption is the same as the title of the drawing.

DESCRIPTION: There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward. In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. The caption is the same as the title of the drawing.

The Sylph thus ‘protects our back’ … protects the back part of our heart chakra, which in some instances might otherwise be ‘stitched shut’ by nature spirits that have been bewitched by the dark. (3)

In Arthur Powell’s passage referred to above, there’s a description of baptism when practiced by the Liberal Catholic Church. In that ceremony, the priest makes the sign of the cross along the entire body of the child. The thought form so created is referred to, in the pass age as a ‘cuirass’. A cuirass is a defensive armor of the torso. In this case the cuirass is made of white light.

Here’s an image that reminds me of a cuirass of light that has settled on a person in the sign of a cross. To me, the dark background visually represents how the thought form, or else the Sylph, protects us from the dark. It is like a Warrior of Light protecting our heart:

ABOUT THE TRANSFORMATION OF A BAPTISMAL SYLPH INTO A SERAPH

According to Arthur Powell’s passage, in the fortunate instance when the baptized child lives his life in the spirit and thought of Christ (what some call ‘walking with Christ’), then there comes a time when the Sylph is transformed into a Seraph. For the Sylph, this means ‘individualisation’ …

A seraph is a member of the highest order of angels, with individualized consciousness. The pink, winged figure below is a depiction of a Seraph by Giotto di Bondone:

A PERSONAL STORY ABOUT A BAPTISMAL SYLPH

After reading all this, I was really happy that I had been christened (baptized, blessed with the presence of Christ) in my early childhood.

Further, in recent years I have had an experience of my Sylph activating and bringing forth the love of Christ through my own heart chakra. For me, this is an absolutely glorious experience of ecstasy. This happened, apparently, because the spiritual music being played and sung by the musicians and the congregation in that church, were so very beautiful that my heart was filled to overflowing with joy at hearing it.

The mountain of Christed energy I encountered when my Sylph activated had an untoward side effect: The pastor in the Christian congregation where I had been worshiping, along with two ushers, ushered me out of the church, and asked me not to come back.

How Christ’s Light Reveals the Darkness in This World

When Christed energy arrives in our lives, it can be disconcerting to other people, as the light of Christ shows, in striking detail, the dark in this world, which had heretofore remained hidden.

When those around us see what is before them, in this duality play on Earth, they begin to realize than choices must be made … very important choices for the welfare of their Souls.

The choices that lie before us, at each turn of the path, in every second of our waking consciousness, are these: To turn to the Light of Christ, or to fall back into the great slumber of darkness.

When each of us begins to rise to the vision of Light and Dark, the first thing that happens is, we feel that someone else has ‘done something to us’ … Someone else has brought beings of darkness into our lives.

On Aligning with Christ, Rather Than Blaming or Judging Others

This, though, is a misapprehension. Instead of blaming or judging others, it’s better to align with Christ, to know that he is with us and will protect us. That is the first step on our Christed journey.

Then, should others blame us for what their newly opened eyes begin to see, let us not judge them as they judge us. Let us pray Christ may confer the blessing of his love and light upon them.

I say this by way of caveat, as it seems that even a little bit of greater Christ consciousness … as in my case …  is always swiftly followed upon by misunderstanding from those around us. If yours is that path, may you will be the more easily able to cope with what may follow, be it joyous or upsetting, from the standpoint of social acceptance.

How the Sign of the Cross Can Bring Us Great Joy

Setting that aside, I would like to end on this happy note: Lately, I have noticed that when I practice the sign of the cross my Sylph feels great joy, and my heart chakra energy feels protected and free to express itself in the world.

And so, for me, the sign of the cross is the answer to many worldly concerns.

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

On Replenishing the Pranic Reserve for Long Life . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

ON REPLENISHING THE PRANIC RESERVE

This video is about replenishing the pranic reserve, which is located just beneath the rib cage, using a breathing technique (a pranayam). For the video thumbnail, I turned a sky photo upside down because, upside down, it reminded me of the dome-topped ‘pranic reserve’.

After the video is an extensively edited Summary, which I feel to be better stated than the video. Then after the Summary are additional sections not in the Video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I would like to talk for a minute about replenishing the pranic reserve. You may know about the pranic column, the pranic ‘tube’, which is roughly equivalent, on the pranic energy level, to the spine. The pranic column is the bearer to the body of vital energy that we need, so as to stay alive.

In addition to this, there is the pranic reserve … which is, on the pranic energy level, a place located just under the bottom of the diaphragm, a muscle that lies under the rib cage, and forms an inverted U … a dome shape … when the stomach is tucked in … [points to ribs and diaphragm] … When the diaphragm muscle contracts, the dome shape flattens out, the chest volume increases, and the lungs inflate. When it relaxes, the opposite happens.

This diaphragm muscle is the top of the ‘pranic reserve’. The reserve extends from the diaphragm, down toward the stomach.

Drawing: “Pranic Reserve,” composite image by Alice B. Clagett, 13 February 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: black-and-white self portrait from just below the waist to top of head. Fluffy white clouds and sky in the shape of an inverted U, beginning at the bottom of the rib cage and extending downward for about 6 inches. Depth and width of the pranic reserve varies by person.

Drawing: “Pranic Reserve,” composite image by Alice B. Clagett, 13 February 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com

DESCRIPTION: black-and-white self portrait from just below the waist to top of head. Fluffy white clouds and sky in the shape of an inverted U, beginning at the bottom of the rib cage and extending downward for about 6 inches. Depth and width of the pranic reserve varies by person.

One way to activate and charge up the pranic reserve, is to do rapid, forceful breathing, while pumping the navel point in and out, for a few minutes. Do the breath through the nose, with the mouth closed. Then inhale completely, exhale completely, hold the air out, and draw all the internal organs up, so that they exert pressure on the diaphragm. When the held breath and the pressure become a little uncomfortable, then breathe in again.

While the breath is held out, you will feel the pranic reserve filling with energy.

I think that this breath also helps to purify and clean out the spleen chakra (aka splenic chakrasee below), which is located, on an energetic level, beneath the lowest left rib, and which bears vitality globules from the surrounding ethers or atmosphere into the body for distribution for health.

I believe that this breathing, which admittedly is difficult at first, and hard to master, has two benefits

    • It replenishes the pranic reserve,
    • And it clears and cleans out the spleen chakra, and restores it to perfect functioning.

In the old days, they say, the yogis, when they had perfected the technique of storing prana in the pranic reserve, could live for hundreds of years underground, with no air whatsoever … in a state of hibernation, or suspended animation … on the energy of the pranic reserve.

This is a good technique to master, even if the old tales about the hibernating yogis turn out to be a little far-fetched. It is also good if your energy has become depleted and this lack of energy threatens your health and well-being. It is important to get that back in balance the very first thing; a top priority.

How the Spleen Chakra was feeling to me, when I did the pranic reserve replenishment breathing exercise last night … It felt like a tube or organelle on the astral plane, that surfaces to the left side of the body, under the lowest left rib. An organelle that has a diaphragm on it that opens and closes, apparently through will power … but for most people, probably unconscious will power. So when we do the breathing exercise to fill the pranic cavity, it naturally opens up and lets the prana (the vitality globules) in.

Image: “The Etheric Double: Diagram II: The Vitality Globule,” by Arthur E. Powell: http://hpb.narod.ru/Images/etheric19.gif … COMMENT: To me, the image looks like a string of hearts!

That is just my thought on this. I am sure others will have more detail at later times.

[End of video]

THE LOCATION AND FUNCTION OF THE SPLEEN CHAKRA (AKA THE SPLENIC CHAKRA)

The spleen chakra, or spleen centre, is the seat of the kundalini energy. It energizes the sexual organs and heats the blood, which then heats the body. Most people mistakenly believe it is located between the navel point and the basal chakra. In point of fact, it is above and to the left of the navel point, beneath the lowermost left rib, and deep inside the body.

In this lateral view, the spleen chakra is labeled the ‘spleen centre’, Notice how it opens up deeper inside the body than the other major chakras …

Citation: “The Astral Body,” by A. E. Powell, 1973, available at http://www.amazon.com … “The Etheric Double: Diagram XIII: Man and His Etheric Centers,” by Arthur E. Powell, page 56. You can search Google for this image as well; at last look, it was on pinterest, but posting the link causes Google to block this web page, possibly due to complaints regarding copyright infringement by pinterest.

The names of the chakras in the above image are different from those generally used today. Here is a list, with today’s name first, followed by the name in the image, in parentheses …

  • Crown Chakra (Top of the Head Centre),
  • Third-Eye Point (Between the Eyebrows Centre),
  • Throat Chakra (Throat Centre),
  • Heart Chakra (Heart Centre),
  • Spleen Chakra or Organelle (Spleen Centre)
  • Sacral Chakra or Sex Chakra (missing in the Powell drawing, possibly due to the mores of the time),
  • Navel Point (Navel Centre), and
  • Basal Chakra (Base of the Spine Centre).

In this similar lateral view, the diaphragm and the nerves (including the splenic plexus) are labeled, but the chakras are not labeled. I have some reservations regarding the way in which the chakras are drawn in this image …

Image: Lateral view of the chakras, including the Spleen Chakra … http://www.minhtrietmoi.org/Theosophy/CWLeadbeater/Chakras-CWL_files/image015.jpg ..

In this frontal view, the chakras shown as circles, from top to bottom, are …

  • Crown Chakra, Third-Eye Point, Throat Chakra, Heart Chakra (depicted as slightly on the left side of the person, corresponding to the location of the physical heart), Spleen Chakra or Organelle (under the lowermost left rib, from the point of view of the person pictured, and not the person viewing the picture), Navel Point (with ‘spokes’) and Basal Chakra …

Image: Chakras, frontal view … https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/f7/75/5b/f7755b4d109d2e24436ce436a138cfdd.jpg ..

It seems to me that the above image may be showing the Basal Chakra where I would put the Sacral or Sex Chakra, and possibly mistaking the latter to be the Spleen Chakra or Organelle.

OTHER WAYS TO HEAL THE SPLEEN CHAKRA

I have found there are certain acupressure points associated with the Spleen Chakra. When these points are out of balance, they will cause a dull ache at the place where the energetic imbalance occurs. You can locate them that way; and in fact, you can locate any acupressure points that need work that way.

In the case of the Spleen Chakra, there are two major points on the underside of the lowest left rib, near the center of the rib. There is a row of minor points around the side of that same rib, proceeding all the way round to the back part of the same rib, where you will find two more major acupressure points.

  • If any of these points are aching, then beginning with the point that aches most, apply gentle fingertip pressure until the ache stops.
  • Then you will feel another ache on the same line of points (under the lowermost left rib). Keeping the pressure on the first point, place another fingertip on the new acupressure point and apply gentle pressure there as well.
  • After a time the first point will cease to ache. It may be that another point on this same line of points will begin to ache. If so, then release pressure on the first acupressure point. Continue to hold gentle fingertip pressure on the second point, and at the same time apply gentle fingertip pressure to the third point. And so on.

You may need to repeat this technique for a few days, until the energy balance in this line of acupressure points re-establishes itself.

It may be necessary to go to a doctor of Western medicine, with adjunctive help from a certified acupressurist or acupuncturist, if self-help does not return your body to balance.

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

Dear Ones,

Further to recent discussion on polarity and duality, here is a talk about helping the fractals of saints and ascended masters … such as, for instance, the crucifixion, which is one of the ‘lost children of the Soul’ of Christ Jesus … to heal and integrate with the Light Bodies of these great Souls. Other topics …

  • Learning about emotional tones and the ‘flavor’ of energy signatures. Knowing what is ‘authentic’ in the way of spiritual upliftment, and what is not.
  • How our fractals, our repressed and wounded Soul memories or body elementals, interact with the ghosting-about fractals of the saints and ascended masters on the astral plane.

There is an edited Summary after the video.  …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I am sitting under a beautiful, sacred juniper tree right now. I am watching the wind go by, and tickle the little plants on the ground. The clouds are slowly meandering along. I have just been sitting here, mulling over the most recent clair intel.

I thought I would talk today about the great saints who have gone before us, and the ascended masters … especially the novice ascended masters, the apprentice ascended masters that I have discussed in other blogs: the saints, the holy ones.

Duality. Polarity, and the Shadow Bodies of People and Groups

To go back to some previous blogs: I have been talking a lot about duality and polarity lately. And I have talked about the Shadow Body of people … along with their Body of Light, there is a Shadow Body that helps create the duality and the polarity of the third and fourth dimensions.

I have also talked about the Darkness in groups, and the Light in groups … and how there is always a Shadow side of a group, because a group is composed of individuals. So the Shadows of all the individuals more or less equate to the Shadow of the Group, you know? Nevertheless, in most groups, there is quite a bit of beautiful white Light too, because the people all have their Bodies of Light, and those contribute to the Light of the Group.

Negative Alien Agenda (NAA)

I have also talked, in prior blogs, about the Negative Alien Agenda (NAA) …

Link: “Opening the Heart Wide: Astral Heart Bots and Space Debris,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 11 August 2015 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5bc ..

… and the Demon World, and Satan …

Link: “Blood Sacrifice, Scapegoating, Disclosure, and Deals with the Devil,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 11 August 2015 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5aA ..

… and how this is the other polarity, the Dark polarity. And then there is the Light polarity which is Buddhic (i.e., like the Buddha) and Christ consciousness … and these are very, very bright. They are the beautiful Light that is all around our Planet, now that the Planet has ascended. The things that are clearing away are the Darkness … It is lightening up, and turning into the brightness of that which we all are.

Old LIghtworker Syndrome

In a recent blog, I have talked about the Old Lightworker Syndrome (see above).

This is the notion that those of us that,  for a long time, have been in service to bring Light to Earth, and to show the way … wayshowers … and find a path for humanity … pathfinders … those of us that have concentrated very much on the light … Lightworkers … have had to have, in our Dark Bodies, a very Dark presence that balances and polarizes the Light.

Polarity and the Shadow Body as Pertaining to Saints and Ascended Masters Who Have Passed On

My discussion about saints and novice ascended masters and … who knows? … maybe ascended masters that are pretty high up too, has to do with this notion of polarity and the Shadow Body.

From what I can tell, on the clair plane, what is going on is that these very great saints with a great deal of Light, to whom humanity owes a very great deal because of the inspiration that their lives provide, if they have not reincarnated, are existing at a very high level of the astral plane positive … some say, way up in the stratosphere of Earth, very high up in the atmosphere of our astral plane.

The Ghostly Fractals of Saints and Ascended Masters. But what I found is that, in addition to their very august and inspiring presence, there are also fractals … or ghostly presences … of them in even the lowest hellworlds … very low … that are like the lost children of the Soul that I have spoken of … the little body elementals that are enclosed and encapsulated and unable to dissolve, because the thought that they embody … the feeling that they embody … is so far different from the Light of the main Body of Light of these great ones.

Link: “Body Elementals Trapped in Us,” by Alice B. Clagett, 12 August 2015 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5b3 ..

And so the Light, the presence, of the fractals, the ghosts of the memories of these saints and ascended masters (for instance, in Jesus Christ, the memory of his crucifixion) in the lowest astral planes can be very, very Dark indeed … Very, very Dark, to balance out their very bright presence in the highest astral planes. So that is part of the news.

I have known this for some time now. But the reason I have delayed in talking about it, is that I usually do not talk about things that I cannot think of something constructive to say about, in terms of how we should deal with it, as humanity.

Mahabharata-like Astral Commotion and the Incoming Light

Just last night there was one of Judy Satori’s broadcasts, her free Summer School broadcasts …

Link: “Judy Satori,” https://judysatori.com/ … Search the term: Summer School 

… was on. And those are always well attended, on the astral plane. And there tends to be quite a commotion, afterwards, on the astral plane, because the Light that is brought in and grounded to Earth during those sessions, results in kind of a chaotic ‘changing up’ and switching around, on the astral plane.

Last night was no exception. In fact, the proportions of the commotion were almost mahabharata style. [laughs] It is a good thing I have been through quite a few of these before. And so I know that when the Light changes, the ghosts, for instance … the fractals … tend to get very upset and disturbed. It is almost like a solar flare coming in.

In fact, last night the Kp (planetary K) Index did change to yellow …

Image: “Estimated Planetary K Index (3 Hour Data), NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA, 15 August 2015 09:30:22 UTC, public domain … DESCRIPTION: There are 19 3-hour Planetary K (Pk) Index bars in the chart. The second bar is yellow and indicated a Kp index of 4. The remaining bars are green, indicating a Kp index of less than 4.

Image: “Estimated Planetary K Index (3 Hour Data), NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA, 15 August 2015 09:30:22 UTC, public domain …

DESCRIPTION: There are 19 3-hour Planetary K (Pk) Index bars in the chart. The second bar is yellow and indicated a Kp index of 4. The remaining bars are green, indicating a Kp index of less than 4.

I think that had to do with Judy Satori’s show, and a lot of things combined to make these changes in the Kp Index (which means the excitation of the atmosphere). In other words, it is possible that the ghosts did it; who knows?! [laughs] You can come up with your own ideas on that. But the ghosts were pretty upset last night. They were just going around, and carrying on.

On Distinguishing Between the Ghostly Fractals of Departed Saints and Ascended Masters, and Their True Selves

And so the thing to do … when, for instance we recognize that these are the injured, repressed, Soul-wounding fragments of those great saints and teachers and ascended masters … what we have to do, is not relate to them as if they were the teacher (though, indeed, they may present to us, on the astral plane, as the ghostly image of the physical form of the revered teacher) … but rather, relate to them as if they were the teacher’s little, lost children that need to find their way back.

The Afterlife. Let us not take instruction from that wounding. We have to make some distinctions, on the astral plane, that I have read about … I believe these distinctions to be true, because of my own clair experiences.

Clairly I hear things well, but I do not see things that well; but clairaudiently I can confirm that there are cases of people who have passed on and are on the astral plane … According to the School of Theosophy …

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.

… eventually the astral form drops away, and people are left with their Mental Bodies and their Souls. And then they go into a kind of a long, deep sleep, and sleeping period … Sometimes, in the past, it used to be a thousand years, according to the School of Theosophy.

The Astral Shell, and Impostor Spirits Who Take Up Tenancy in It. The discarded astral form just sort of floats around on the astral plane. And sometimes  impish nature spirits … whose intention may be, at best, neutral with regard to humankind … will slip into these astral forms, and parade around, on the astral plane, trying to play tricks on humans.

And in the worst cases, these are malicious spirits, or demons, that are trying to harm humans by pretending to be people that they used to know. One of the worst possible instances of this is when a great saint or spiritual teacher or ascended master’s astral form lies dormant on the astral plane, and is taken up by a malicious spirit.

On Recognizing the Energy Signature of an Impostor Astral Imp. Those who are used to taking instruction from their spiritual teacher who has passed on … who have been taught for a long time by that teacher, for instance … and there are many cases like this all over the world … many, many cases where students have been in touch with their students for a long, long time … may find, right now, imposters in that role.

So what we have to do is, we have to look at the emotional tone of what is being said … that is, we must learn to distinguish ‘flavors’ of energy signatures … and decide whether this is the true thing; whether this the real McCoy, whether this is a high spiritual teaching or this is an imposter, you know?

The Importance of Stabilizing our Energy Field When there Is Commotion in the Astral Realm

At the current interval, the commotion that is happening is reaching the stratosphere right now … the very high parts of the atmosphere … when there are solar flares and so forth. And also, there are all the ghosts, who are not really sentient at all … all the fractals who are stirring about … like, you can imagine, seaweed waving in a deep, deep sea …

Image: Animated gif of baby shark and waving seaweed in Monterey Bay Aquarium … https://i.gifer.com/6KAt.gifTo me, the shark is like a Demon, in the astral realm, and the seaweed is like an astral shell in which it can hide and pretend to be vegetable rather than predatorial.

Our job, during these times of Light, astral bewilderment, and upset … our job is to maintain our own pranic tube energy … not to relate to anyone else, but to put ourselves in touch with our own higher selves.

How Our Ascension Process Will Free Up the Departed Saints and Ascended Masters So That They Too Can Ascend

For most of us, our Awareness is in the third and fourth dimension right now. But according to Judy Satori, who is in touch with the Galactic Council, we have 12 formed dimensions … 12 formed shapes. We have our third dimensional shape … our physical form … and our fourth dimensional shape … our astral body. After that, there are eight more higher selves, within the formed realm, that we could get to know and relate to, at these times.

So let us place our energy on our own Soul remembering. That will allow these great saints, and these great teachers, and these great ascended masters, to work with their own fractals and their own integrations … because they are still, in almost all cases, in the higher fourth dimension. And then, as they integrate all their fractals, they move into the fifth or sixth dimension, I believe. That is how it seems to me.

But they cannot do that if we are pestering them with our own fractals, because ours ratchet against theirs. So let us incorporate our own body elementals that are wounded … our own Soul wounding. Let us discover our higher selves. Let us do that work that is pertinent just to us, ok? I think that will help; it will help all of them.

They have a monumental task before them, of incorporating the very dense, highly compressed little bubbles of wounded body elementals that are shadowing about in Hades, into their extremely bright Bodies of Light. That is what I think. And also, if those ghostly presences begin to sound more and more intelligent … more and more animated … that is because that is what is happening. And when they reach a certain state, they are going to get to the point where they can resume a relationship with the main Soul, and become a unified Soul field.

All is well. All is going fine. There are just a few things to look out for.

Take care, everybody. Talk to you later.

The Desire Elemental . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 31 July 2015; revised on 2 December 2018

Dear Ones,

Every human being has a ‘desire elemental’, which consists of ‘elemental essence’ that goes along and flows with his or her EMF (electromagnetic field). Some call this desire elemental a ‘being’, but this is an imperfect term, as its beingness is not discretely individualized like that of the human being.

Nevertheless, every human being is attended by this elemental essence, and it in fact performs a very important service to humankind, by keeping us motivated to stay on Earth, and thus to accomplish our Soul missions during this incarnation.

For a good description of the desire elemental, I refer you to …

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 … page 76 (beginning “It will be recollected…”) and then all of page 77 (ending “…as apart from it.”) 

Arthur Powell makes a very good point about not letting our elemental essence get the better of us, as it by nature seeks the coarser astral vibrations, and we humans seek refinement of our astral matter, so that we may realize our God nature.

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

Diet and the Astral Beings We Attract . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 20 July 2015; revised on 29 November 2018

  • ON REFINING OUR ASTRAL MATTER THROUGH DIET
  • ON AVOIDING CONSUMPTION OF ANIMAL FLESH, ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO
  • USE OF DRUGS INTRODUCES US TO SOME UNPLEASANT ASTRAL ENTITIES
  • STORIES BY ALICE: HOW ASTRAL STORIES CHANGE WHEN I EAT CHICKEN
  • VEGETARIAN EATING PLAN

Dear Ones,

ON REFINING OUR ASTRAL MATTER THROUGH DIET

As you know, we humans are expanding from awareness of our physical bodies into awareness of our astral bodies, and of the astral world, as well. This is because the Incoming Light is allowing our awareness to ‘ascend’ … it is allowing us to become aware of ever finer frequencies of our energy bodies. Hence the term ‘Ascension’, often also termed ‘Christ consciousness’, ‘Buddhic consciousness’, the Great Awakening, or the Second Coming.

The coarseness or refinement of the energy of the astral body has a lot to do with the experiences we have as we expand into awareness of the astral plane. We can sculpt our astral experience through diet, emotions, and thoughts. In this way, we can choose whether our astral experience will be that of the hellworlds, the purgatory planes, or the heaven worlds.

ON AVOIDING CONSUMPTION OF ANIMAL FLESH, ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO

Very specifically, doing the ‘wrong’ thing with regard to diet can degrade the astral experience. School of Theosophy compiler Arthur E. Powell singles out consumption of ‘flesh’ (all meats, not just beef), alcohol, and tobacco as causing ill health, and also causing us to find ourselves in the presence of some pretty gnarly astral beings. I refer you to …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book, page 66, beginning “Bodies fed on flesh …”) and ending “…while in physical bodies.” 

USE OF DRUGS INTRODUCES US TO SOME UNPLEASANT ASTRAL ENTITIES

In addition, Powell is against the use of opium, cocaine, tea, and coffee …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book, pp 66-7, the two paragraphs beginning “Nearly all drugs…”

He does not go into the use of today’s ‘recreational drugs’, simply because their use was not widespread in his time. In fact, I expect taht some of them did not exist in his time. However, I have seen, through clair vision, and heard, through clair hearing, that, without a doubt, use of today’s recreational drugs causes the same quite unpleasant astral visitors to gather round our aura as is the case with consumption of meat, tobacco and alcohol.

For more on diet and the astral beings we attract, I refer you to …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book, Chapter VIII: The Physical Life, from the beginning of page 64 through the first paragraph of page 66 (which ends “…is always an evil”).

STORIES BY ALICE: HOW ASTRAL STORIES CHANGE WHEN I EAT CHICKEN

It is only human nature to go on with the dietary habits we are used to, and to dismiss information such as that below as fanciful. I thought I would include it here, though, in case the reader begins to experience … as have I … inexplicable, unpleasant astral phenomena. Case in point …

This morning, I had a slice of chicken for breakfast. Big mistake! Right away I heard all kinds of astral chatter about killing folks, threats to life, and so on.

Apparently this was the astral critter ‘come hither’ occasioned by consumption of ‘flesh’ … which, after all, has recently been killed, and so carries within it what might be termed ‘the threat of death’. In short, by eating the chicken I attracted some very unpleasant little ‘death threat’ astral entities.

VEGETARIAN EATING PLAN

So then this evening, I had a protein drink, and felt the astral world around me become immediately and blessedly silent. It was miraculous!

So I can say from experience, unlikely … no, unheard of as it may seem: Diet apparently does sort out the astral entities!

In love, light and joy,

Emotions and Thoughts Affect the Quality of Astral Experience . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 20 July 2015

  • THINGS THAT WORSEN THE ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
  • THINGS THAT IMPROVE THE ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
  • EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS AFFECT THE QUALITY OF ASTRAL EXPERIENCE

Dear Ones,

Here is more on improving the quality of our astral plane experience. This blog has to do with consciously nurturing ‘good’ emotions and avoiding ‘bad’ emotions (such as rage, depression, or worry).

Thoughts and emotions are inextricably interlinked. Thoughts, like the physical body and the emotions, must be kept highly tuned in order to have a positive astral (i.e., emotional) experience.

THINGS THAT WORSEN THE ASTRAL EXPERIENCE

May I suggest avoiding popular media such as television and movies, avoiding music that rouses the primitive passions, and avoiding as well habits of viewing pornography? Also, avoidance of loud or irritating recurrent noises, such as motor noises?

THINGS THAT IMPROVE THE ASTRAL EXPERIENCE

Instead, to calm and train the mind, be in peaceful surroundings. Read or view uplifting topics, such as, for example, books of philosophy, books that increase wisdom and knowledge, or movies such as those provided by Spiritual Cinema Circle …

Link: “Spiritual Cinema Circle” … https://www.spiritualcinemacircle.com ..

In times of trouble, the grounds of a church, or your place of worship, will offer relief. Reading your sacred book will also help, as will wearing a ‘talisman’ such as a cross or other symbol of that which is holy.

These are only a few of the many ways to uplift mind and emotions. Arthur Powell goes into great detail, as to the why and wherefore, below.

EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS AFFECT THE QUALITY OF ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
compiled by Arthur E. Powell

In the School of Theosophy book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973. 

… there are two passages to do with consciously nurturing ‘good’ emotions and avoiding ‘bad’ emotions (such as rage, depression, or worry).

I have added the page references below, rather than quoting extensively from the source, so as not to infringe on the copyright for the book. I realize this is a difficulty for the reader, and hope it will not be insuperably so. The first passage is …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973,“Chapter VII. Physical Life,” page 70, first full paragraph 4 beginning “The Emotional Life …” through page 74, the first full paragraph ending “… maintain that position.”

The second passage is in the same chapter, page 76, the first paragraph beginning “It will be recollected …” through page 78, fourth paragraph ending “… responding to them.”

The topics covered in these two passages, in order of presentation, are:

  • The Emotional Life
  • Manifestation of Desire: The ‘Dark Elementals’
  • Habits of Thought and Emotion
  • How to Manifest Higher Astral Matter
  • The Influence of Projected Thoughts and Emotions
  • The Influence of Nature Spirits
  • Moods
  • Curbing the ‘Desire Elemental’
  • The Mental Life

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)

How to Help the Dead to Escape Kamaloka . by the Theosophists . referral by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 July 2015

Dear Ones,

In the School of Theosophy book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, there are some good passages about how to help the dead to escape kamaloka, the Desire World, also known as the ‘purgatory’ aspect of the astral realm. In this way they can move on to the next higher plane of being, the devachan or ‘heaven worlds’.

Developing Skills for Navigating the Astral Plane . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

In an Ascension context, we are now expanding our Awareness into a second ‘dimension’, the astral realm, while retaining physical form here on Earth. Using the terms of the School of Theosophy, we are expanding our Awareness to include two planes of being. These are the material plane and the astral plane, kamaloka. Which is why an understanding of the astral plane is pertinent.

We may clair see this realm, or clair hear it, or clair sense it in some other way, no matter. When we begin to experience the astral plane, with any of our clair senses, why that is the time to study up on the astral plane. Because we must deal with the astral phenomena as we further expand our Awareness into another dimension. This higher dimension is known as ‘the fifth dimension’ in an Ascension context. I gather from my reading on the School of Theosophy’s teachings that it may be known as ‘devachan’, the ‘heaven worlds’, or the ‘higher mental plane’ in that context.

I have seen schemas of the planes of being (1) that indicate the causal plane lies above the astral plane and the lower mental plane, and below the higher mental plane. For instance, in this image, “Diagram XXV. The Cycle of Rebirth,” the astral plane is shown below the lower mental plane, and presumably below the higher mental plane …

Image: “Diagram XXV. The Cycle of Rebirth” … http://hpb.narod.ru/Images/causal147.gif ..

In an Ascension context we speak of ‘transcending time and space’, stepping into the eternal Now in the fifth dimension. Since it is the causal plane that binds us to the law of cause and effect, I am guessing that we must also somehow overcome this hurdle of causality before experiencing the synchronicity of the Now.

How this may transpire, I do not know. Is the causal plane the void of which Tom Kenyon and Sandra Walter speak? Or is the void on just the ‘other side’ of the causal plane? That is something yet to be discovered.

Meantime, to my lights, the task at hand is to purify the emotions, so that my astral body will be free to experience any of the astral subplanes at will. I found a good quote from Arthur E. Powell’s chapter “Mastering the Emotions” from his book “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” but to preserve their copyright I must provide the reference rather than including the quotation. I hope this will not deter the reader from looking up the passage …

The Astral Plane . by H.P. Blavatsky

Image: Dark blue sky, pinkish sun, two glass pyramids reflecting on water: http://www.tanahoy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/astral-world.jpg ..

Dear Ones,

There is some overlap between Arthur E. Powell’s School of Theosophy description of the astral sub-planes and that of Madame Blavatsky. It seems to me that Madame Blavatsky is describing these sub-planes from the standpoint of her own mediumistic experience. See …

Link: “H.P. Blavatsky’s Cosmology – Planes within Planes” … http://www.kheper.net/topics/Theosophy/HPB-planes.html ..

They say that people see what is on the sub-planes according to the coarseness or refinement of the astral matter that comprises their emotional bodies. Thus it is not at all surprising that no two visitors to the astral realm would describe it in an identical way.

In love, light and joy,

Plane of Forces: Kundalini Energy . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 9 July 2015

Dear Ones,

Here is, to my lights, a very informative, but perhaps somewhat overcautious and ‘oldstyle’ approach to the kundalini energy, the development and enjoyment of which is the birthright of every human being …

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 VI: Kundalini,” pp 38-42. 

Specifically with regard to the danger of arousing ‘undesirable passions’ … Should this happen to you, it will be an indication that the lowest three chakras, which comprise the ‘lower triangle’, need clearing and balancing … In which case, just keep up moderate, regular (daily) practice of kundalini yoga until all your chakras are clear and the energy flows evenly up and down the spine.

For the ‘how and wherefore’, see … Link: Kundalini Yoga, at 3HO …  http://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga  ... There are also some excellent youtube videos on kundalini yoga by 3HO (the Yogi Bhajan group); see LInk: Youtube … www.youtube.com ..

Effect of City Life on the Astral Body . by the Theosophists . referral by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 9 July 2015; revised on 27 November 2018

Dear Ones,

There are some good passages regarding the effect of city life on the astral body in the School of Theosophy book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell …

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.

These passages have to do with the deleterious effect of city noises on sensitive people and on children:

In “Chapter III: Colours,” see the last paragraph on page 16 (“A developed …”), which continues on to page 17.

In the same chapter, page 17, the paragraph beginning, “An astral …” Then see:

“Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” the last paragraph on page 62 (“It is …”).

“Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” page 67, the paragraph beginning “Physical noises…”

“Chapter XVI: The Astral Plane,” page 150, the paragraph beginning “Atmospheric and …”

Afterlife: Astral Plane . by the Theosophists, with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 July 2015
Previously titled: Afterlife: Astral Plane … by the Theosophists

Dear Ones,

The below-referenced account of the astral plane encountered in the afterlife is useful in an Ascension context, because we are experiencing the same terrain while in physical form. Further, the same lessons can be learned from it as might be learned by a human being who is ‘in the know’ after passing from physical form.

And, the same navigational caveats and goals apply as we get to know the astral plane while in physical form. We are passing from the lower to the higher astral planes now, and it is good to know the how and wherefore of it.

The account is from Arthur E. Powell’s book “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena.” To preserve their copyright I must provide the reference rather than including the quotation. I hope this will not deter the reader from looking up the passage …

Death and the Desire Elemental, versus the Ascension Process . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 3 July 2015; revised on 26 November 2018
Previously titled: Death and the Desire Elemental

Dear Ones,

I found in one of Arthur E. Powell’s Theosophical compilations descriptions of the Soul’s progression through various subplanes of the astral realm (from coarser to more refined levels) after death …

This description seems to me to be another way of viewing the Ascension process, only during Ascension we keep physical form and also pass from the coarser astral subplanes to the more refined astral subplanes, preparatory to the fifth dimensional experience. My teachers call this process the healing of Soul wounding, resolution of karmic miasmic distortions or of morphogenetic field distortions, clearing of samskaras, and so on.

The below referenced passages, taken altogether, comprise the entirety of  “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter XII: Death and the Desire Elemental.”  I have interspersed the citations with my own comments regarding Ascension.

To preserve the copyright I must cite the references rather than including the quotations. I hope this will not deter the reader from looking up the passages.

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 …  “Chapter XII: Death and the Desire Elemental,” page 107, first paragraph (beginning “At death, the…”) to page 109, paragraph 2, (ending “… coarsest plane only”.

It is this ‘box’ of astral matter through which we are now sifting, and clarifying, though we are still grounded in physical form. This keeping of the physical form is a free-will choice that is now available on ascended Earth.

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 …  “Chapter XII: Death and the Desire Elemental,” page 109, paragraph 3 (beginning “Although living in …”) to page 110, first (incomplete) paragraph (ending “… to that sub-plane”)

Since the Shift in 2012, my Body of Light has been clarifying. Until quite recently I have been experiencing something like the above. On the astral plane, my coarsest astral matter has logged onto other people’s coarsest astral matter, making my world of astral relationships seem dark and gloomy.

During a Solar Event a week or so ago (that was the CME or coronal mass ejection billed by www.spaceweather.com as being about to directly impact Earth, and later said by them to have ‘missed’ Earth … go figure!), I experienced a clarification, or ‘throwing off’, of this coarsest astral sheath. Then suddenly, my astral relationships seemed more elevated, more refined. It seemed that the people had changed, but I see now that my own astral matter clarified as a result of the Incoming Light.

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 …  “Chapter XII: Death and the Desire Elemental,” page 110, first full paragraph (beginning “When we speak …”) through the second full paragraph (ending “… their astral life”).

Sandra Walter of Ascension Path … http://www.sandrawalter.com/ … has described the ‘evanescing’ of the physical world in her ‘Light Intel’ blogs. Perception of the material world as shimmering, transparent, and ever changing has been described by Indian yogis. I have also heard that learning the art of walking through material barriers such as walls is part of the Ascension process (a part I haven’t learned yet).

Quite clearly, since we are capable of rewriting history and co-creating reality, the physical world must, perforce, have these ‘evanescing’ qualities. It is only that our physical senses have a ‘coalescing’ faculty, a ‘blur feature’; that is, a way of glossing over what they truly perceive, and leaving out the inconvenient, ever-changing truth of co-creation in favor of a ‘state of permanence’ mental filter.

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter XII: Death and the Desire Elemental,” page 110, third full paragraph (beginning  “This process of …”  and ending  “… his astral body”).

When we create the feeling of Oneness or Unity in our Bodies of Light, then the particles in our Body of Light disperse and homogenize. This disperses the mental filters of disease and incarnational emotional-mental wounding. The body elementals, the ‘angels within’, also disperse into the golden white light of the Body of Light, then re-emerge in perfect beauty.

In the same way, when a physical illness or emotional trauma is sensed somewhere in the body, it is good to concentrate on the more homogenized portion of the Body of Light around this dense anomaly. Generally I find that, by concentrating on lightness, dispersedness, the dense anomaly (whether physical, mental or emotional, or some combination of these) will disperse into the Body of Light. In this way the issue of physical disease and Soul wounding is resolved.

Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter XII: Death and the Desire Elemental,” page 110, last paragraph (beginning  “The elemental, being …”) to page 111, the last paragraph (ending  “… to one level”).

Zen Mind, Galumphing Thought Forms, and the Power of the Heart . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 28 May 2015; originally published on 30 May 2015; revised and transcribed on 31 October 2018

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • Metaphor of the Garden Soil and the Field of the Mind, by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is about Zen mind (‘no mind’ or ’empty mind’), how galumphing thought forms can take up residence in the empty mind, and how expansion of the power of the heart can stabilize the mental field. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I just thought I would talk a little about some things I have been hearing lately, on the clair plane, about Zen mind and ‘no mind’ and about my own experiences regarding the power of the heart.

I have various friends who pursue the Zen Buddhist path that is sometimes called ‘no mind’ … and that is just a very empty mind … no thoughts. And I have some experience of that as well, myself, over the years … in the last 15 or 16 years. And I have also some reading that I did, in one of the School of Theosophy books that Arthur E. Powell put together …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … See “Chapter VII: Thought-Forms,” p. 48, 1st paragraph, beginning “Moreover, as … “

It explains about thought forms, and it explains what happens when a person’s mind is empty … for whatever reason … according to his sources in the School of Theosophy. His sources say that, when the mind is completely empty …

Well, first of all, you should know that there are thought forms galumphing around everywhere … all over the world … especially in the cities, because there are a lot of people there, and these people are forming thoughts all the time. And so, Arthur Powell has a very vivid passage about thought forms, that some people cannot clair see.

According to his writing, when a person’s mind is completely empty, then thought forms … which are always out there, galumphing around here and there, bumping into things (especially minds) on the astral plane … galumph right into the ’empty’ mind, and take up residence.

I have found this to be kind of true. After years of practicing ‘no mind’ as much as possible all day long, what I have found is that, into my empty mind came first, thought forms, pinging back and forth … which you can kind of ignore. But also there came in the whole mental identity … the personality … of other people who were out on the astral plane, for whatever reason. And those people would stay with me until I started talking with other people, or ‘getting a life’ on the physical plane.

This is not desirable. It is good to keep our mind sacred, for our own thoughts, I feel. That is my feeling about it.

Recently I have taken up Judy Satori’s … https://judysatori.com/ … activations of Light for the heart. And my hope is that … it is going to take a while … but as time goes on, I am hoping that the energy of my heart will clear to such an extent that my the energy of my heart will permanently overcome the vascillating energy of my mental field. I know you have heard me talk about this before,

Bill Ballard has already done this …

Link: “Official Release of Bill Ballard eBook “The Great Awakening,” 15 June 2012 …  https://www.shiftfrequency.com/great-awakening-bill-ballard/ ..

… and no doubt, Judy Satori has done it; and many others have done it in the past, as well as all of the great ones … the Christ, the Buddha … everyone who is enlightened has managed to stabilize their energy field so that the mind and the heart are one.

So that is what I am working on right now: The heart clearing activations of Light wherever I can find them. Sometimes I find them at Tom Kenyon’s website … https://tomkenyon.com/ … and I may find one elsewhere as well. Say a little prayer for me, in hopes that all this will go well.

I just thought I would mention … because there are many people out there, who are attempting to empty their minds … this caveat about the mind field being …

Metaphor of the Garden Soil and the Field of the Mind
by Alice B. Clagett
30 May 2015

It is like when you have garden soil tilled and fertilized and ready for planting. The garden is the mind; and the thoughts that come into it are the seeds that are planted there.

Just as the garden soil is ready for planting, the field of the mind is always ready to accept thoughts, whether they be our own, or, in the case of people who practice ’empty mind’, the thoughts of others.

The point is, we need to strengthen the energy of our electromagnetic field to the point where the energy of the heart generates enough energy to completely stabilize the mental field, and the emotional field.

. . . . .

That is all for now. You all take care. Wish me luck.

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

Jealousy, Hatred, Ambition, and the Afterlife . by the Theosophists . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 30 May 2015

Dear Ones,

There are Theosophical passages that indicate such feelings as jealousy, ambition and hatred, even when unexpressed through action in the world, cause suffering in the afterlife, during the phase when the astral body is slowly disintegrating.

The passages are from Arthur E. Powell’s book “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” … To preserve their copyright I must provide the reference rather than including the quotation. I hope this will not deter the reader from looking up the passages.

This is the statement that jealousy, hatred and ambition will cause suffering in the afterlife …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … See “Chapter VII: Thought-Forms,” page 63, paragraph 3 (beginning “Most men recognize …”) to the end of page 221 (ending “… and to Initiation”).

Here are the pertinent passages on the afterlife:

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 “Chapter XIII: After-Death Life: Principles” …

  • page 113, first paragraph (beginning “It cannot be …” and ending “… the physical world”).
  • page 116, fourth paragraph (beginning “Many who die …” and ending “… utterly false conceptions”)
  • page 117, last paragraph (beginning “As already indicated …”) to page 119, last paragraph (ending “… perish comparatively rapidly”).

Note the reference to disintegration of the astral body at the end of page 117. The disintegration of the astral body then leaves the man free to rise to the mental realm for further Soul learning in a sort of ‘cocooning’ state, preparatory to the next incarnation.

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

Dear Ones,

A PASSAGE ON CROWD CONSCIOUSNESS FROM THE THEOSOPHICAL LITERATURE

There is a discussion of Crowd Consciousness here …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter XXV: The Mastery of Emotion,” page 216, first paragraph (beginning “With wonderful …” through page 218, second full paragraph (ending “…insidious influences.”)

More on this here

AN ANTIDOTE TO CROWD CONSCIOUSNESS

The passage describes ‘psychological crowds’. The existence of these is obvious in the telepathic realm right now — a few are speaking, many are listening. Among those who are listening, some do so by preference, and others through the habit of listening rather than speaking up.

As an antidote to crowd consciousness during these times of the Awakening, I have been practicing this affirmation …

Affirmation to Free Oneself from Crowd Consciousness
by Alice B. Clagett, 12 May 2015

“By God’s grace, I am free to feel my heart.
I am free to follow my heart.
I am free to speak my truth.
I am free to exercise my will.
I am free to cherish and uplift my Soul.” 

ASTRAL STORIES ARE GLOMS THAT ORIGINATE WITH JUST ONE PERSON

The passage suggests the idea that the feeling or emotion of a crowd frequently originates from a single brain…. I have noticed, in the telepathic realm lately, that the sweeping emotions of the collective daydreams (‘astral stories’) that have been happening (especially in the afternoons, when folks may be feeling a little tired) do often originate with a mild negative feeling from one person. Then, over the telepathic ‘internet’, they go from person to person, picking up emotional ‘charge’….

We can influence the emotional aspect of this collective daydreaming by introducing a sentence or visual image with positive emotional content. Also, it is good to change the ‘train of thought’ completely when introducing a positive emotion … that is, change to a new ‘train of thought’. A simple exclamation about the beauty of the natural world, the sky, the sunlight, or the breeze, for example.

When the collective daydreaming is very densely heavy in negative emotional content, reference to a vital pleasure is helpful: I think I’ll take a little nap! … or … I feel like having a cup of tea! … like that. In this way, the apparently grumpy body cells of everyone who is collectively daydreaming perk up and cheer up and cheer us on to happier envisioning.

This gentle suggestion of positive emotions will be of help to humankind, and also to our beautiful planet Earth, which interacts with our noosphere, and with our personal electromagnetic fields, as a mother does with her children.

These slow, lazy daydreams we are awakening to are just the beginning of the co-creational abilities of humanity. Now we are awakening. Now we are beginning to grasp the vast creative potential of our collective dreams.

CROWD LEADERS: CONTROLLERS

The passage also describes crowd leaders. I have noticed lately, in the telepathic realm, that the crowd leaders described above have been leading with thoughts more mental than heart-based. This is an expectable feature of the Atlantean Age, which is now transforming to a time of New Creation and Regeneration.

To help humankind, and our planet, let us contribute our heart-felt emotions of love, gratitude and appreciation to this telepathic mix. In this way, the unconscious thought cloud of the world, which is gently and slowly responding to Earth’s own Great Awakening, will begin to awaken to the vast wisdom in the heart of every human being.

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

Capital Punishment in the Context of the Awakening . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 May 2015

  • CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THEOSOPHY
  • THE LAW OF MAGNETISM AND THE PREDATOR-PREY RELATIONSHIP
  • HOW A CRIMINAL IN ASTRAL FORM MAY INJURE LIVING PEOPLE AFTER HE HAS BEEN EXECUTED
    • The Astral Criminal Is Able to Will Himself Instantaneously to Be Near an Intended Victim Who Is Still in Physical Form

    • Astral Criminals Can Increase the Murderous Disposition of Criminals Still in Physical Form

Dear Ones,

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THEOSOPHY

The viewpoint toward capital punishment in the book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, is unique, and I feel, well founded. This passage is pertinent …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 ... “Chapter XV: The After-Death Life: Special Cases,” page 137, first full paragraph (beginning “The victims …”) through the second paragraph (ending “…same community.”)

This passage expresses that people who are executed for their crimes find themselves suddenly torn from their physical bodies, and thrust into the astral realm. There, in their astral body (their emotional body) they experience such negative feelings as hatred, revenge, sexual passion, and so on.

These feelings that they project while in astral form influence Earth’s noosphere just as much as if these murderers and criminals were still in physical form … only more so, since the suddenness and brutality of capital punishment have invigorated their negative samskaras.

THE LAW OF MAGNETISM AND THE PREDATOR-PREY RELATIONSHIP

In general, I feel from personal experience of potential so-called ‘victimhood’, when criminals discover what they consider to be a potential victim or ‘pigeon’, then their own criminal thoughts will flow to the intended ‘pigeon’ … by way of the law of magnetism to the effect that opposites attract. This is what I have elsewhere termed the ‘predator-prey’ relationship.

Thus, while the criminal is in physical form, his mini-noosphere, and its potentially catastrophic effects, is in the main limited to himself (the region of his own head, especially) and the heads of his intended victims. I would term this a localized ‘mini-noospheric’ or -desire-thought (kama-manas) effect.

HOW A CRIMINAL IN ASTRAL FORM MAY INJURE LIVING PEOPLE AFTER HE HAS BEEN EXECUTED

The Astral Criminal Is Able to Will Himself Instantaneously to Be Near an Intended Victim Who Is Still in Physical Form. When the astral body of such a criminal is suddenly expelled from his physical body as a result of capital punishment, it is no longer limited by Earthly geography, as there is no geography on the astral plane. To be anywhere on Earth, the astral criminal simply imagines this, and finds his astral body there. And so, the mind and emotions of the astral criminal can, and inevitably will find itself immediately physically in front of the body of the intended victim.

The victim, being still in physical form, cannot escape. And so, the victim is ever at the mercy of the deceased criminal, until the criminal’s astral matter has purified to the extent that the astral form may be discarded, and the criminal may go on to spiritual schooling in the higher astral planes, under the tutelage of his guardian angels and other beings of grace and light.

Unfortunately, this process of purification may take far longer than the intended victim’s lifetime. And, one may presume, longer than that of a succession of victims in physical form, upon whom the astral criminal may, in accordance with his accumulated samskaras, set himself to prey.

By Increasing the Fear Samskaras, Astral Intrusions Can Make the Intended Victim Still in Physical Form an Easier ‘Mark’. What these astral intrusions do to the marked Earthly ‘victims’ is to aggravate the samskaric tendencies toward fear that they carry in their Soul fields. It is these samskaric tendencies that subject the intended victims to the attentions of human ‘predators’. And so, the effect of the attentions of the astral murderer is to make it more likely that such victims will be preyed upon by potential criminals still in Earthly form.

Astral Criminals Can Increase the Murderous Disposition of Criminals Still in Physical Form. There is another effect that astral criminals, especially criminals who have been executed (for reasons described above), can have upon those still in form. Such astral criminals may just as likely gravitate to people of murderous disposition who are still in physical form, and living in the astral criminals’ prior Earthly locales. This murderous astral intervention can cause their compatriots’ violent instincts to increase to the point of ‘acting out’ their behaviors in physical form. This is one of the likely causes of the phenomenon of many murders, enacted by different criminals, taking place in the same neighborhood.

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

Boomerang Effect of Thought Forms . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 May 2015; revised

Dear Ones,

I have been talking some lately about the boomerang effect of thought forms … how they bounce back on the person who thinks them, and affect their minds and emotions. I found a great description of this boomerang effect in Arthur E. Powell’s compilation “The Astral Body And Other Astral Phenomena” …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” page 48, paragraph 4 (beginning “If the thought-form …” through page 49, paragraph 2 (ending “…strike its creator”).

The last paragraph in the above passage describes the famed ‘boomerang effect’, which, it explains, takes place under certain circumstances: 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.

The passage continues as follows …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” page 49, paragraph 3 (beginning “Thus, for example…”) through page 50, paragraph 3 (ending “…a limited area.”)

A blessing I have been trying lately, when confronted with hatred on the clair hearing plane, is this …

May you be blessed with unconditional love!

Because this is such a powerful blessing, I use it all the time. I find it  dissolves astral hatred, as well as evil curses and spells. It is a workaround for the most powerful black magic, and can foil even the drugpa, the red hat, the thuggee, and the subtle sorcerer.

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

Symbolic Thought in the Dream World . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 11 May 2015

Dear Ones,

There is a passage in the book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, which supports my notion that the sleeping mind (as I term it elsewhere, the subconscious or unconscious mind) thinks in symbols. Because of copyright restrictions, I refer you to the original …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter X: Dreams,” page 102, first paragraph (beginning “(4) The Ego, …”)

Dreams also express, in an unconscious way, emotional thought forms via audiovisual (AV) clips of metaphors and proverbs. We can consciously use this meaning-packed, condensed language in our 5D light sculpting work, so as to uplift the symbolic content of the astral plane (the dreamtime realm).

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I thought I would talk for a minute about superpowers … That is your psychic superpowers.

One of my favorite books is Patanjali’s “How to Know God” … the one with Swami Prabhavananda’s and Christopher Isherwood’s comments in it.

It is a short book, and near the end there is a description of a whole lot of superpowers that were put together by the ancient yogis of India. And beside each superpower, it says what meditation allows you to attain the superpower.

And then … either before, or after, or maybe both … it states in this short treatise by Patanjali (to paraphrase): Whatever you do, do not try to gain a superpower. And then it gives the consequences, which are really dire …

Citation: “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali,” translated with a commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, copyright 1953, 1981 by The Vedanta Society of Southern California, pp. 182 and 194-195 … for the importance of avoiding superpowers

I think it was something like: It will set you back, on your path to know God. And, would it not? … Because it really ratchets up the ego … does it not? … to have superpowers. And so then, everybody looks up to us, when we have superpowers, right? And so then, why bother with learning about God? Why bother with self-awareness or enlightenment? … Because we have the world at our fingertips; the world is our oyster, right? And I am afraid this might be something that happens to people, sometimes: They get sidetracked with superpowers.

Now before I go on, to the possible solution, I would like to talk about some other consequences that I have intuited lately; consequences of attaining superpowers. And here is the thing that I feel about it … and you could test, and see if it seems true for you too …

It seems to me that, when we ask for a superpower, what really happens is that we petition for an entity on the astral realm, who has those powers, to come and be with us, and manifest those powers through our physical body.

So, someplace, in one of these vehicles of our bodies … We have the physical body, the astral, the mental, the etheric net, the causal body …

  • Someplace, in one of our human bodies, there is an entity that is taking up space. And the rent that entity is paying, is our superpowers.
  • And what does it get for that? It gets a chance to express its own personal agenda through our physical presence in the world.

My intuition tells me that entities that will provide this service to humankind, are not our best friends. So we have a chance … by requesting superpowers … to do limitless damage to the Soul evolution of everyone we know … including ourselves.

So, what to do about this? Say we are not a totally enlightened person … we have not totally overcome our ego … and somehow or other we have come by superpowers. What do we do?

I heard of a man, one time, who had too many superpowers. And he asked his spiritual teacher … so the story goes … to take some of his powers away from him; they were getting in the way. And what I heard was that his spiritual teacher did that for him.

So, if a spiritual teacher can do it, then for sure, God can, right? God can do that for us. If we petition him day and night, he can take those powers, and those astral entities, away from us … and give us back our pure Souls, so that we can continue on with our Soul evolution, without harming anyone, or ourselves.

I feel it is well worth the effort, to humble ourselves … to humble our egos … and to ask to go on, in a very simple way, on God’s path for our Soul, through this incarnation. I really do feel that.

It is a hard thing to do because, when we get a superpower, then it is ever so hard for us, personally, to get past the third chakra. The third chakra is the seat of Will, for us, in the world. And the addition of the superpower settles our energy down, far from the heart, where it has to be.

For our survival, actually, during this cycle of Ascension and regeneration. our Awareness has to be in the heart; not in the third chakra. We do need the third chakra to survive; but ratcheting up the superpowers makes that center our center of gravity, rather than the heart energy. So, for our survival during this cycle of regeneration, it is good to just purify our Soul fields, and eliminate any astral entities that are hostile to our Soul evolution.

I have one more thing for you … I was reading, this morning, the book”The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” put out by the Theosophical Society, and put out by Arthur E. Powell, from the writings of a number of teachers from the School of Theosophy.

He was saying that there are various hostile, intelligent entities that scoop around in the astral plane, and take advantage of people who have similar intentions, or samskaras that are willing to go along with the energy of these hostile entities.

And he was saying how sometimes, in seances, entities like that can propose to be someone else … someone that the people in the seance know, for instance … and, what you might say, ‘pull one over on’ these people … these unsuspecting people … in the interests of their own agenda … their own personal, hostile-lifeform agenda.

And he was also saying that entities of that nature can sometimes come across an astral shell. An ‘astral shell’ is like this: After a person passes on, after a while they just outgrow their old astral shell, and it falls off, in the astral realm. It just lies around for a while, and slowly decomposes.

According to Arthur Powell, these entities can actually scoop up an astral shell that has been discarded by a Soul, and transport themselves about, in it, in a more definite shape than would otherwise be so … And use it, in a way, as a slowly decaying vehicle for themselves to express their hostile intentions.

And so from that explanation, I started to get a notion and an understanding of how adventitious these hostile lifeforms are. And I think that … during this time of so many shifts and changes in the human body vehicles … in the different energies of the human bodies … that there is an opportunity for those kinds of life forces, if we not stay firmly rooted in our bodies.

And that is probably the reason why Sandra Walter … http://www.sandrawalter.com/ …. has said recently (and I paraphrase): That this is not a time to be going into astral form, and traipsing about. The Incoming Light is very intense. And it is very important to stay centered and focused … with all the body vehicles firmly centered around the physical body.

I do know of a case of someone who stepped out of their body a number of times, because of their concern for the discomforts of the Ascension process. And when that has happened, what has occasionally happened is that such an entity has temporarily taken up residence in the body that has been vacated by the astral form.

It takes practice to understand, on the clair plane, what a person’s ‘Soul note’ is … what a person’s ‘Soul keynote’ is. And so, when such an entity steps in, on the astral plane, what I hear is the same Soul note … but with a change from positive to negative. That is what I hear: I hear the same Soul note, in a minor key, somehow.

And the content of the thoughts suddenly changes from their pure spiritual intention and understanding … The purity of their Soul purpose seems to shift, as they move into astral form, and the other, hostile entity moves into their physical form, and expresses itself there: It shifts to the negative … to the indescribably negative … that could never be anticipated in that person.

I mean, if you were to talk to that high, spiritual person on the phone, you would never notice such a shift. So then, as they step back into the physical … firmly into the physical … then that entity is driven out. And then, there they are again, expressing themselves according to their true Soul purpose.

Now for those of us that talk to each other on the astral plane, it is very important to make a distinction between the true person that you hear on the astral plane, and the entity that has momentarily displaced that person, as they go astral travelling.

So, just a caveat: You can tell, by the flavor of the ice cream, whether it has been sitting too long, or not. So! Go for the fresh. Go for the natural. Go for the true Soul flavor of your friends, and you will never go wrong.

I have one more thing along those lines: When we are asleep, it is possible for hostile lifeforms to take advantage of our astral speaking apparatuses … generally on a lower chakric level … and reflect energy from our physical form … especially when we are off in the dream state. Astral speech that our friends and family hear, and take to be us.

So, just a note of protective anticipation: When we are falling asleep … I got this information from “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” by Arthur E. Powell … And I agree completely, because Tom Kenyon … http://tomkenyon.com/ … has written similarly about protecting ourselves as we fall asleep … A good technique is to lie down, and imagine a great, egg-shaped energy all around us that is just brim-full of protective energy … the egg-shaped encasement of a huge and intensely packed auric field around us.

And then, as we are drifting off to sleep, to make our last few thoughts about some very high and lofty thought … to make it a very positive emotion and a very high thought … and fall off to sleep with that. And that will protect us completely, during our dream state, and during our sleep.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Judy Satori and Arthur E. Powell on Body Elementals

I was listening to one of Judy Satori’s …  https://judysatori.com/ … radio broadcasts in one of her “Beyond Healing” radio show, on Pyramid One Network, on the internet. She had a whole show about body elementals. That put me in mind of Arthur E. Powell’s book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena” …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House,

I was reading through what I had not read before, there, this morning. And what do you know? There was a lot of information on the body elementals. Judy Satori (to paraphrase) says there are body elementals for everything in the body: all the organs, just this and that, all have a form of independent intelligence, programmed with information from past lifetimes, which may or may not be appropriate for the current lifetime. And she says these body elementals have a kind of intelligence that wishes to continue to be alive, to be vivified, and does not have the creative adaptability to change.

On Reprogramming Body Elementals

In other words … I am guessing, from my readings today … that we have to program them to make them different … First we have to be aware of them, and then we have to program them.

So I have been working with that today … And particularly with regard to the heart chakra just now. I thought I would tell you some insights I just had.

Alice’s Vision: How Tiny Beings Sewed Up the Front Funnel of My Heart with Gossamer Threads Some Years Ago

Years ago, when I was living in Los Angeles, I had a really strong feeling in my heart for a while … just tons of love, pouring out of my heart. And then, during the night, I had a vision … a vision of tiny astral beings with thread much finer than the finest fishing cord filament.

They were knitting up my heart chakra, and saying: We will stitch up your heart; It’s not safe for your heart to be open!

And after that, for a long time, I did not really feel that strong energy in my heart.

Were These Beings Nature Spirits, or the Body Elemental of the Front Funnel of My Heart?

At the time, I thought it was probably nature spirits. And that there was someone else involved in that decision-making process … someone who did not wish me well. In other words, my understanding of that, was from the world of duality, of Dark and Light.

But today I think that there may be a body elemental in the front funnel of my heart chakra, that is actually programmed to keep that area closed, as a precaution based on my Ascension Team’s knowledge of my timeline, or else perhaps because my body elemental feels this is best, because of recent past events.

On Reprogramming the Message My Body Elemental Knits into the Front Funnel of My Heart Chakra

So for that body elemental, when it says that it has that message for me, and for my heart, today I am reprogramming it, that it is safe to feel my heart.

How and Why the Back Funnel of My Heart Chakra Was Closed for Years

And then, as you know, there is also a back part of the heart chakra … also funnel-shaped … that comes out the back, at the heart level. And that area has been closed for a long time in me, relatively speaking.

The thing that closes it down is a body elemental that says: No one has ‘got your back’. Your back is not safe.

(This is an instance of the subconscious mind interpreting a figure of speech … ‘got your back’ … in a physical way, as is its wont. For more on this, see my blog category: Subconscious symbolism …)

On Reprogramming the Message My Body Elemental Knits into the Back Funnel of My Heart Chakra

So today I have been reprogramming that body elemental with the message: Your back is safe. You’re completely safe. Your back is safe.

And so, it is happy to take that new message on. But it may be a while before it completely remembers all the time.

Conclusion

So I thought I would tell you about my adventures with my own body elementals. And if you like the idea, you can start figuring out where yours are giving you faulty messages, and work with that.

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

Here is the information on body elementals from “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, as mentioned in the video:

  • Also “Chapter VII: Thought-Forms,” page 43, first paragraph (beginning “The mental …”) through page 47, first paragraph (ending “…by them.”)

Note that Arthur E. Powell refers to elementals as ‘thought forms’ … which would more accurately be termed ‘desire-thought forms’, in most cases. Arthur E. Powell is talking about all kinds of thought forms, including those which stick with our own body mostly (‘body elementals’), those which wander off from us with messages to other folks, and those that wander from other folks to us with messages.

SOUNDTRACK BY ALICE

 

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

It is dawn on Maui, and there is some kind of bird in the palm tree making a lot of noise. I will see if I can get it for you. [sound of birds chirping in palm trees]

On Introducing Myself to Nature Spirits after Arriving in Maui

So. I found out something incredible yesterday afternoon and this morning, as I was awaiting the dawn, here in Maui. I had gotten off the airplane yesterday, and I was driving along. And I kept hearing, telepathically, the voices of people.

I was pretty sure they were not talking to me. And what I was hearing was more like emotions … I was hearing other people’s emotions, but not their mental thoughts.

Just to see what was going on, I tried saying, telepathically: My mind to your mind. And then I tried talking to their mental minds. And they were very surprised that I was talking to them.

So then, I was driving along. And it suddenly dawned on me that what is happening … this is so cool! … What is happening is that there are lots and lots of nature spirits in the world, right? In the fourth dimension … the higher fourth dimension.

Our Personal Nature Spirits Want to Help Fulfill Our Desires

And there are nature spirits assigned to each of us. Or, it would be better to say: Not assigned, but who are interested in us personally. And these nature spirits want to help us fulfill our desires. That is their interest, on Earth: To help humans fulfill their desires. And in order for that to happen, they need to know what our desires are. Right?

How I Have Been Hearing the ‘Gut Brain’ Thoughts of Other People Over the Years

What I have been hearing, for many years now, is lots of people talking on the astral plane. And I do not really want to talk to them. I want to live a very quiet, Zen-like existence.

And so, I hear people telepathically, in the telepathic region that Sri Aurobindo (1) calls the ‘vital body’ … the gut brain, the instincts of survival: fear of death; the instincts of desiring a sexual mate; the instincts to overcome the world … That is chakras 1, 2, and 3, old-style, termed in yoga the ‘lower triangle’; and it is the desires that they are designed to express: To avoid dying, to find a mate, and to make your mark on the world. Right?

How I Would Rather Not Hear These Thoughts Projected by Other People

I keep hearing other people thinking these things. And I do not want to hear it; it is like ‘noise’ that gets into my morphogenetic field …

  • What Judy Satori … https://judysatori.com/ … calls ‘projected thoughts’.
  • And what Arthur E. Powell, of the School of Theosophy, calls ‘thought-forms’ (2) that flow into our field of awareness. Kajillion of them, right?

How I Realized That the Nature Spirits in Maui Wanted to Provide Me with Romance

So I do not like this. And what I realized, when I was driving, through this conversation with my nature spirits, that have a special interest in me, is that they made an assumption that I want to get together with somebody … some guy. So, every time I think of a guy, they try and create that kind of relationship, with thoughts … with desire-related thoughts.

Every Person Has a Name, on the Astral Plane, But Many People Don’t Know Their Name Yet

Everyone has a name, on the astral plane. My name on the astral plane is my spiritual name: Dharm Darshan Kaur; sometimes corrupted into Dharm Darshan Koo, and other things like that, when people are angry.

Everybody has a name on the astral plane. But a lot of people are unaware. And they are all going by another person’s name. Or they are just not awake enough to say what their name is on the astral plane, yet … although this is changing rapidly.

The Difficulty of Some Other Person Romantic Thought-Forms Toward Me, by Mistake

For a while now, there has been some mix-up with me, and another person’s name … someone is projecting onto me, that I am somebody that they are romantically interested in, you know? And this is out of loneliness; this is just a mistake … Because I hear, and others do not hear. And so, they want to think that the voice that they hear is this person that they love, right?

An Unsuccessful Ploy I Tried, to Stop the Romantic Advances on the Astral Plane

So first I tried a ploy … I tried not telling the truth to the nature spirits. I said: I am not that person [that is, I am not Dharm Darshan Kaur]

And so they went back to the other person, and they said: She says she’s not that! [laughs]

And so that person ‘woke up’ to the thought that the nature spirits are going by names. And that they themselves have a name. And they said: I am not that name! 

Then the nature spirits got all upset. They did not know what to do. They were in a big flurry of upset over the whole thing. They said: He says he’s not that person! What will we do? And they were just ‘dance-around’ anxious!

On Being Truthful and Clear in Speaking with Nature Spirits

So I thought: This is really not the way … to not tell the truth about your name, or to talk about names, and like that; because they have an interest in what they see: The Light, and the form, and the color, and the sound of this being, which is me.

The Many Nature Spirits in Maui, Contrasted to the Demons in Los Angeles

So I was mulling that over. I did not know what to do. So this morning, I woke up before dawn, and I was sitting out here, in this place here … all by myself, with the nature spirits, of which there are gadzillion in Hawaii … gadzillion nature spirits!

And what do you know? No cruel Demons! … of which there are gadzillion in Los Angeles. The atmosphere … the environment … of a big city fosters the existence of the lower astral world. This is the sights, the sounds, the colors, the emotions of the people in the big cities.

In a Place Where There Is a Balance with Nature, the Demons Are Driven Off by Nature Spirits, and People Are Happier

And here in Hawaii, where there is a balance with nature, the nature spirits thrive. And the Demons cannot be there. The nature spirits are the natural enemies of the demon world. The nature spirits are higher up in the astral world. They are very happy, by nature. And they are the type of astral being … take my word for it! … that you and I would really prefer to be around. [laughs]

On Letting the Nature Spirits Know How Much I Appreciate Them

So, to get back to my story: This morning I was sitting here in the dark, right? And I was talking to the nature spirits. They were all trying to get me into conversations with various people.

So first I said: I know you’re trying to do what I want. And thank you very much! I really appreciate it. But that’s not what I want! I don’t want to talk to them!

And they gathered up close, and they went: Well, what do you want?

I said: I would really like to be very quiet. Except that, it’s nice to have you around, and I would love to be sitting here with you. 

And they were talking with each other, and they were saying: She wants to be with us! Nobody ever said that before! [laughs]

On Asking the Nature Spirits to Help Clear My Etheric Net

So the nature spirits and I were sitting around, enjoying the beautiful silence. And then I thought: Maybe they could help me clear my morphogenetic fields, and my etheric net … Because they want to help, right? They want to fulfill our desires.

So I tried that. And what do you know? They said: Oh, that’s what she wants! 

So then they started doing it! Gosh! So then, in the place where there was some ‘tangle’ in my etheric net, they would put in another thought that was: I will be all healed up … or something like that. It was a blast! And so they tried that for a while.

Plan Devised by the Nature Spirits to Shield Me from Other People’s Projected Thoughts

Later, they apparently talked together, and decided that the thing to do, when people came around with thought forms … when thought forms came through my Soul field … was: They would send out a thought that says: [my name, Dharm Darshan Kaur] doesn’t want to talk. 

So that is what they’ve been doing right now, as the Sun is coming up.

Nature spirits are such fun, you know? People are nice too, but it is better to have that silent center, as my focus, I think. And it is wonderful to have the help of the nature spirits in doing it.

Well, Aloha, everybody.

C.W. LEADBEATER ON THOUGHT FORMS

The Sea of Other Men’s Thoughts, and the Trail of Thought Forms We Leave Behind Us, Wherever We Go

Here is C.W. Leadbeater on how we are “…walking all the time amidst a sea of other men’s thoughts” and leaving behind us “… “a trail of thought forms” …

“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 Thoughts Drift in and Out of Our Minds

“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.

We May Choose Which Thoughts … Though Foreign to Us … We Wish to Dwell Upon

“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.” — from “A Textbook of Theosophy,” by C.W. Leadbeater, “Chapter V: The Constitution of Man,” page 18 … public domain (3) [paragraphing and subheadings are mine. –Alice]

The Physical Body and the Higher Ego . by the Theosophists, with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Published 16 February 2014; revised

Dear Ones,

This description of the physical body and the higher ego (or higher self) is curiously similar to Peggy Black’s description of the relationship between our physical body and our spiritual ‘team’ … beings of light, angels and archangels, ascended masters, Elohim, and so on …

Link: Peggy Black … www.peggyblack.com ..

It also reminds me of Dr. Suzanne Lie’s description of the relationship between our physical body and our body of light …

Link: “Multidimensions,” by Dr. Suzanne Lie … www.multidimensions.com ..

Of course, it is far from an exact match; more like a hint or a faint echo of life as a fully embodied human.

Arthur Powell’s description of a man putting his finger in a hole in the wall reminded me of accounts by Lightworkers, where they described inviting their spiritual guides to ‘try on’ their physical bodies for a while, and how difficult the light beings found it to relate to reality through the limitations of the human senses.

I also read an account … I think it was by Dr. Suzanne Lie …of her being in the fifth dimension for a while, at a Temple, learning the ascension skills she would need, and then returning to her physical body … and how constricted and uncomfortable she felt in it for a moment or two.

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

THE PHYSICAL BODY AND THE HIGHER EGO

“Regarding the ego [i.e., the higher ego, or higher self] as the real man, and looking at him on his own plane, we see him to be indeed a glorious being. The only way in which down here we can form a conception of what he really is, is to think of him as some splendid angel. But the expression of this beautiful being on the physical plane may fall far short of all this: in fact, it must do so: first, because it is only a tiny fragment; secondly, because it is so cramped by its conditions.

“If a man puts his finger into a hole in the wall, or into a small metal pipe, so that he cannot even bend the finger, it is obvious that he could express but very little of himself through that finger. Much like this is the fate of that fragment of the ego which is put down into this dense body.

“We may carry the analogy a little further, by supposing that the finger has a considerable amount of consciousness of its own, so that, shut off as it is from the rest of the body, it temporarily forgets that it is merely a part of the whole body. Forgetting the freedom of the wider life, it tries to adapt itself to the hole, it gilds its sides and makes it an enjoyable hole by acquiring money, property, fame and so forth, not realising that it only begins really to live when it withdraws itself from the hole altogether, and recognises itself as a part of the body. Clumsy as is the image, it may yet give some sort of idea of the relation of the personality to the ego.

“Other, and more picturesque analogies are to be found in certain ancient myths. Thus Narcissus was a youth of great beauty, who fell in love with his own image reflected in the water, and was so attracted by it that he fell in and was drowned, and was afterwards changed by the gods into a flower and bound to earth. This of course refers to the ego looking down upon the waters of the astral plane and the lower world, reflecting itself in the personality, identifying itself with that personality, falling in love with its image, and being bound to earth.

“So also Proserpine, while picking the narcissus, was seized and carried off by Desire to the underworld; and although she was rescued from complete captivity by the efforts of her mother, yet after that she had to spend her life half in the lower world and half in that above: that is to say, partly in material incarnation, and partly out of it.

“Another old mystery-teaching was that of the Minotaur, which signified the lower nature in man — the personality which is half man and half animal. This was eventually slain by Theseus, who typifies the higher self, or the individuality, which has been gradually growing and gathering strength, until at last it can wield the sword of its Divine Father, the Spirit.

“Guided through the labyrinth of illusion, which constitutes these lower planes, by the thread of occult knowledge given him by Ariadne (who represents – intuition), the higher self is enabled to slay the lower, and to escape safely from the web of illusion. Yet there still remains for him the danger that, developing intellectual pride, he may neglect intuition, even as Theseus neglected Ariadne, and so fail for a time to realise his highest possibilities.”

More than You Ever Wanted to Know about Karma . from the Theosophists

Written and published on 9 February 2014; revised

  • MORE THAN YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT KARMA

Dear Ones,

Below is a quaint but vivid School of Theosophy description of the karma we all carry around with us from lifetime to lifetime.

By way of solace, I would like to mention this: I’ve heard that contemplation of the hridaya chakra, the hidden cave of the inner heart, can dissolve karmas. It does this by bringing the work of the Soul to the forefront in our lives. Personality and its distortions of truth recedes, and our true nature comes forth, thus offering a shortcut through what may seem from the below account to be a somewhat dismal and time-consuming project.

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

…………………………………………………………………………………………….
MORE THAN YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT KARMA

“H.P. Blavatsky, in her vivid, forceful and inimitable language, gives the following, description of the ego coming to rebirth., and being met by his Skandhas : ‘Karma, with its arm of Skandhas (1), waits at the threshold of Devachan (2), whence the Ego re-emerges to assume a new incarnation. It is at this moment that the future destiny of the now-rested Ego trembles in the scales of just retribution, as it now falls once again under the sway of active Karmic Law. It is in this rebirth which is ready for it, a rebirth selected and prepared by this mysterious, inexorable, but in the equity and wisdom of its decrees, infallible LAW, that the sins of the previous life of the Ego are punished.

“Only it is into no imaginary Hell, with theatrical flames and ridiculous tailed and horned devils, that the Ego is cast, but verily on to this earth, the plane and region of his sins, where he will have to atone for every bad thought and deed. As he has sown, so will he reap. Reincarnation will gather around him all those other Egos who have suffered, whether directly or indirectly, at the hands, or even through the unconscious instrumentality, of the past personality. They will be thrown by Nemesis in the way of the new man, concealing the old Eternal Ego…The new personality is no better than a fresh suit of clothes with its specific characteristics colour, form and qualities: but the real man who wears it is the same culprit as of old.’ (‘The Key to Theosophy,’ pp 141-2).

“Hence it is the law of Karma which guides the man unerringly towards the race and nation herein are to be found the general characteristics that will produce a body and provide a social environment fitted for the manifestation of the general character, built up by the Ego in previous earth-lives, and for reaping of the harvest he has sown….

“… the Ego, ere he plunges into the ‘Lethe (3) of the body’, sees  the causes which result in the conditions of the incarnation, on which he is to enter, and the opportunities which will be afforded for growth: hence it is easy to see how lightly will weigh in the balance all passing griefs and pains trivial, to that piercing, farseeing gaze, the joys and woes of earth.

“For what is each life but a step in the ‘Perpetual progress for each incarnating, Ego, or divine soul, in an evolution from the outward to the inward, from the material to the Spiritual, arriving at the end of each stage of absolute unity with the Divine Principle. From strength to strength, from the beauty and perfection of one plane to the greater beauty and perfection of another, with accessions of new glory, of fresh knowledge and power in each cycle, such is the destiny of every Ego’ (‘Key to Theosophy, p. 155).

“And as Annie Besant graphically puts it, ‘with such a destiny, what boots the passing suffering of a moment, or even the anguish of a darkened life?’

“Continuing with our brief examination of the question of the karma of an ego, it is possible to see the great mass of the accumulated karma – know as the sanchita or piled-up karma — hovering over the ego. Usually it is not a pleasant sight, because, by the nature of things, it contains more evil than good. The reason for this is as follows.

“In the earlier stages of their development most men have, through ignorance, done many things that they should not have done, and consequently have laid up for themselves, as a physical result, a good deal of suffering on the physical plane. The average civilised man, on the other hand, is trying to do good rather than harm, and therefore, on the whole, is likely to be making more good karma than bad. But by no means all of the good karma goes into the accumulated mass and so we get the impression in that mass of a preponderance of evil over good.

“This again needs further explanation. The natural result of good thoughts, or good actions, is to improve the man himself, to improve the quality of his vehicles, to bring out in him qualities of courage, affection, devotion, and so forth. These effects thus show themselves in the man himself, and in his vehicles, but not in the mass of piled-up karma which is waiting for him. If, however, he performs a good action, with the thought of its reward in his mind, then good karma for that action will come to him, and it will be stored up, with the rest of the accumulation, until such time as it can be brought forward, and materialised into activity.

“Such good karma naturally binds the man to earth just as effectually as evil karma: consequently, the man who is aiming at real progress learns to do all actions entirely without thought of self, or of the result of his action. This is not to say that any man can avoid the result of his actions, be they good or bad: but he can change the character of the result. If he forgets himself entirely, and does good actions out of the fulness of his heart, then the whole force of the result is spent in the building of his own character, and nothing of it remains to bind him to the lower planes. The fact is that in each case the man gets what he wants: in the words of the Jesus: ‘Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.’

“An ego may sometimes choose whether he will take certain karma in the present life, though often the brain consciousness may know nothing of the choice: the very adverse circumstances, at which a man is grumbling, may thus be exactly what he has deliberately chosen for himself, in order to forward his evolution.

“A pupil of a Master may often dominate and largely change his karma, setting in motion new forces in many directions, which naturally modify the working out of the old ones.

“All of us have more or less of evil karma behind us, and, until that is disposed of it will be a perpetual hindrance to us in our higher work. Hence one of the earliest steps, in the direction of serious progress, is to work out whatever of this evil still remains to us. This results in the Agents of Karma giving us the opportunity of paying off more of this debt, in order that the way may be cleared for our future work; this, of course, may, and often does, involve a considerable increase of suffering in various directions.

“The portion of karma selected for discharge in a particular life is known as ‘ripe’, or prarabda karma. With this in view , the mental, astral and physical bodies are constructed for a particular length of life.

“As a man’s will is free, it may happen that the karma selected for him, for particular life, is worked through sooner than the Administrators of Karma had expected, if one may put it that way. In such a case, They give him more, that being the explanation of the otherwise perplexing statement that ‘Whom the Lord loveth He Chasteneth’.

“The parabda karma of an individual divides itself into two parts. That which is to express itself in the physical body is made by the Devarajas into the elemental which builds the body, as described in the “Etheric Double,” Chapter XV.

“The other far larger block, which is to indicate his fate through life, the good or evil fortune which is to come to him, is made into another thought–form which does not descend. Hovering over the embryo, it remains upon the mental plane. From that level it broods over the man, and takes or makes opportunities, to discharge itself by sections, sending down from itself a flash like lightening to strike, or a finger to touch, sometimes far down on the physical plane, sometimes a sort of extension which reaches only the astral plane, and sometimes what we may call a horizontal flash or finger upon the mental plane.

“This thought-form goes on discharging itself until it is quite empty, and then returns to the matter of the plane. The man can of course, modify its action by the new karma which he is constantly making. The ordinary man has usually scarcely will enough to create any strong new causes, and so the elemental empties itself of its contents according to what may be described as its original programme, taking advantage of convenient astrological periods and surrounding circumstances, which make its work easier or more effective. And so the horoscope of the man may work out with considerable exactitude.

“But if the man be sufficiently developed to possess a strong will, the elemental’s action is likely to be much modified, and the life will by no means follow the lines laid down in the horoscope. Sometimes the modifications introduced are such that the elemental is unable fully to discharge itself before the time of the man’s death. In that case, whatever is left of it is again absorbed into the great mass of the sanchita or accumulated karma, and out of that another and more or less similar elemental is made, ready for the next physical life.”

The Causal Body . by the Theosophists

Published on 3 December 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

Here is information from the Theosophists on the Causal Body, which is the subtle body in our energy field responsible for the illusion of cause-and-effect.

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

………………………………………………………………………..
THE CAUSAL BODY … BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“The causal body owes its name to the fact that in it reside the causes which manifest themselves as effects in the lower planes.

“For it is the experience of past lives, stored in the causal body, which are the cause of the general attitude taken up towards life, and the actions undertaken.

“In Samskrit, the causal body is known as the Karana Sharira, Karana meaning, cause.

“Briefly we may say that the causal body has two main functions:

“(1) To act as a vehicle for the Ego: the causal body is the ‘body of Manas‘, the form-aspect of the individual , the true man, the Thinker.

“(2) To act as a receptacle or storehouse for the essence of the man’s experiences in his various incarnations. The causal body is that into which is woven everything which can endure, and in which are stored the germs of qualities, to be carried over to the next incarnation. Hence one sees that the lower, manifestation of man, i.e., his expression in his mental, astral and physical bodies, depends ultimately upon the growth and development of the real man himself, the one ‘for whom the hour never strikes’….

“At its inception, the causal body, or form-aspect of the true man, is described, as a delicate film of subtlest matter, just visible, marking where the individual begins his separate life. That delicate almost colourless, film of subtlest matter, is the body which will last through the whole of human evolution: on this, as on a thread – the thread-self, or Sutratma, as it is sometimes called – will all the future incarnations be strung.

“The causal body, as said, is the receptacle of all that is enduring—i.e., only that which is noble and harmonious, and in accordance with the law of spirit; for every great and noble thought, every pure and lofty emotion, is carried up, and its essence worked into the substance of the causal body. Hence the condition of the causal body is a true register – the only true register – of the growth of man, of the stage of evolution to which he has attained.” –from Citation: “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, “Ch XV. Functions of the Causal Body,” public domain, available at www.lulu.com or www.amazon.com ..

A Myth of Creation: The Three Outpourings . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 1 December 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

Below are excerpts regarding ‘the three outpourings’ that comprise creation, from …

THE THREE OUTPOURINGS
by ARTHUR E. POWELL

“Recapitulating briefly, we see that the Logos sends forth three mighty waves of His Life, through His three Aspects in succession: the first shapes and ensouls matter; the second imparts qualities and builds forms; the third carries down the human Monad to unite with the forms prepared by the second….

Image: “Diagram XXI.–The Three Outpourings,” in “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, “Chapter XIII. Individualisation: Its Mechanism and Purpose,” public domain.

“The action of the three Outpourings in producing an individual human being is graphically represented in the well-known diagram opposite page 38 in Man Visible and Invisible, and on page 16 of The Chakras. This diagram we have ventured to modify slightly (see Diagram XXI), in accordance with the further information given in The Chakras, and in The Masters and the Path.

“The explanation of Diagram XXI is as follows: —

“The First Life Wave or Outpouring, from the Third Logos or Aspect, plunges straight down into matter, the line in the drawing, indicating this, growing heavier and darker as it descends , showing how the Holy Spirit vivifies the matter of the various planes, first building the atoms, and then aggregating the atoms into elements (as described in Chapter V).

“Into that matter so vivified, the Second Life Wave, or Outpouring, from the Second Logos or Aspect, God the Son, descends through the First, Second, and Third Elemental Kingdoms, down to the mineral kingdom; then it ascends through the vegetable and animal to the human kingdom, where it meets the downward reaching power of the First Logos—the Third Outpouring, from the First Logos, or Aspect.

“Meanwhile the force of the Third Logos, the First Outpouring, from the Third Aspect, after touching its lowest point, also rises again. On this path of return, or ascent, it is Kundalini, and it works in the bodies of evolving creatures, in intimate contact with the Primary or Life- Force, the two acting together, to bring the creature to the point where it can receive the Outpouring, of the First Logos, and become an ego, a human being, and still carry on the vehicles even after that. Thus we may say that we draw God’s mighty power from the earth beneath as well as from heaven above, and are children of the earth as well as the sun.The two forces meet in us, and work together for our evolution. We cannot have one without the other, but if one is greatly in excess there are serious dangers. Hence, incidentally, the risk of any development of the deeper layers of Kundalini before the life in man is pure and refined.

“Whilst all three Outpourings are truly the actual Life of God Himself, yet there is a vital and important distinction between the First and Second Outpourings, on the one hand and the Third Outpouring on the other hand. For the First and Second Outpourings have come down slowly and gradually through all the sub-planes, drawing round themselves the matter of each of these, and enmeshing themselves in it so thoroughly that it is scarcely possible, to discern them for what they are, to recognise them as Divine Life at all.

“But the Third Outpouring flashes straight down from its source without involving itself in any way in the intermediate matter. It is the pure white light uncontaminated by anything through which it has passed….”

…….

“The Soul or Ego we may consider as that which individualises the Universal, Spirit, which focusses the Universal Light into a single point; which is as it were, a receptacle into which is poured the Spirit; so that which in Itself is universal, poured into this receptacle appears as separate: always identical in its essence, but separated in its manifestation. The purpose of this separation is, as we have seen, that an individual may develop and grow; that there may be an individualised life potent on every plane of the Universe; that it may know on the physical and other planes as it knows on the spiritual planes, and have no break in consciousness; that it may make for itself the vehicles that it needs for acquiring consciousness beyond its own plane, and then may gradually purify them one by one until they no longer act as blinds or as hindrances, but as pure and translucent media through which all knowledge on every plane may come.

“The process of individualisation, however, should not be conceived as merely the making of a form or receptacle, and then pouring something into it, so that that which is poured at once  takes the definite outline and shape of the vessel.The real phenomenon is more analogous to the building of a solar system from a nebula. Out of the primeval matter of space, a slight mist appears too delicate almost to be called even a mist: the mist grows gradually denser as the particles aggregate more closely together; eventually shapes are formed within the mist, which, as time goes on, become more definite, until a system is formed, with a central sun and planets around it.

“So is the coming of Spirit into individualisation. It is like the faint appearance of a shadow in the universal void; the shadow becomes a mist, which grows clearer and more definite, until eventually an individual comes into existence. The Soul, or individual, is thus not a thing complete at first, plunging like a diver into the ocean of matter: rather is it slowly densified and builded, until out of the Universal it becomes the individual, which ever grows as its evolution proceeds.

“Thus the Third Outpouring makes within each man that distinctive ‘spirit of the man which goeth upward’, in contradistinction to ‘the spirit of the beast which goeth downward’–which, being interpreted, means that while the soul of the animal pours back after death of the body into the Group-Soul to which it belongs, the divine spirit in man cannot so fall back again, but rises ever onward and upward towards the Divinity from Whom it came.”

……..

“If we consider the phases of involution and evolution in broad outline, we may think of them as consisting of seven stages. During three the Spirit descends. As it descends, it broods over Matter, imparting qualities, powers and attributes. The fourth stage stands alone, for in it Matter, now imbued with various powers and attributes, comes into manifold relations with the informing Spirit, which now enters it. This is the great battle of the universe, the conflict between Spirit and Matter, the battle of Kurukshetra, of the vast hosts of the opposing armies.

“In this part of the field is the point of balance. The Spirit, coming into innumerable relations with Matter, is at first overpowered; then comes the point of balance, when neither has the advantage over the other; then slowly the Spirit begins to triumph over Matter, so that, when the fourth stage is over, Spirit is master of Matter, and is ready for his ascent through the three stages that complete the seven.

“In these, the Spirit organises the Matter which he has mastered and ensouled, turns it to his own purposes, shapes it for his own expression, so that Matter may become the means whereby all the powers of the Spirit shall be made manifest and active. The last three stages are thus taken up by the spiritual ascent.”

Rise of the Dark Lords, the Controllers . by the Theosophists . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Revised and reposted from 1 December 2013

Dear Ones,

The following intriguing account of the rise of the Dark Lords or Controllers is excerpted from Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain.

This account would put the number of the Controllers at 2 million Souls, which is much higher than my estimate (200-300) or an estimate in a recent issue of Quest Magazine (a Theosophical magazine), which numbered them at 1 to 2% of the world population. (1)

………………………………………………………………………………..
RISE OF THE DARK LORDS, THE CONTROLLERS

“The three methods of individualisation – through intellect, affection, and will – are the normal methods. Occasionally, however, individualisation is attained in other ways, which we may call abnormal or irregular ways.

“For example, at the beginning of the Moon Chain, a certain group of beings were at the point of individualisation, and were drawn towards it by their association with some of the perfected inhabitants, whom we call the Lords of the Moon. An unfortunate twist, however, entered into their development, and they began to take so great a pride in their intellectual advance, that that became the prominent feature in their character. They worked, not so much to gain the approval or affection of their masters, as to show their advantage over their fellow animals, and to excite their envy.

“This latter motive pushed them on to make the efforts resulting in individualisation, and so the causal bodies which were formed showed almost no colour but orange. They were allowed to individualise, apparently because if they had continued in the animal kingdom any further, they would have become worse instead of better.

“This detachment – or ‘ship load’,  as it is sometimes called – numbered about two millions. They individualised by pride, and, though clever enough in their way, possessed but little of any other quality.

“The members of this orange shipload, from Planet A of the Moon-Chain declined to enter the vehicles provided for them in the Earth-Chain, while the golden coloured egos from Globe B, and the rose-coloured egos from Globe C, accepted the conditions, entered into the vehicles, and fulfilled their destiny.

“All through their history these orange egos caused trouble to themselves and to others, owing to their arrogance and unruliness. They have been described as turbulent and aggressive, independent and separative, prone to discontent, and eager for change.

“Some of the cleverest of them became the notorious ‘Lords of the Dark Face’, in Atlantis, and later world-devastating conquerors, caring nothing for the thousands who were slain or starved in the course of gratification of their mad ambition, or later still, unscrupulous millionaires, aptly termed ‘Napoleons, of finance’.”

  • 34.14 [And so, we must overcome the victim-aggressor paradigm to feel our hearts. This is pretty simple to do, per Bill Ballard (see pearls2u on www.youtube.com ). Whenever we sense that the mind is going on with its incessant mental tangles, we just take all that energy we’ve been spending on our minds, and place the energy — and our awareness — on our heart chakra, located in the center of our chest.

The Black Magician . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 1 December 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Desireless State . by the Theosophists

Published on 1 December 2013

Dear Ones,

Here is a great passage from Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Ch XXVII: The Ego in the Personality” …

… on the importance of achieving the desireless state …

“In order to bring through, into the physical brain, impressions from the ego, it is obvious that the brain must be calm. Everything from the causal body must pass trough the mental and astral bodies, and, if either of these is disturbed it reflects imperfectly, just as the least rippling of the surface of a lake will break up and distort images reflected in it. It is necessary … also to eradicate absolutely all prejudices, otherwise they will produce the effect of stained glass, colouring everything which is seen through them, and so giving a false impression.

“If a man is to hear the ‘still small voice’ with certainty and accuracy, he must be still: the outer man must be unshaken by all external things, by the clamour of the big breakers of life that dash against him, as well as by the delicate murmur of the softer ripples. He must learn to be very still, to have no desires and no aversions. Except on rare occasions, when it is unusually strong, it is only when personal desires and aversions have ceased to exist, when the voice of the outer world can no longer command him, that a man can hear the inner voice which should be his unfailing guide.” –from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell. (1)

Absolution Dissolves Dark Network . by the Theosophists

Republished; originally published 1 December 2013

Dear Ones,

Here are intriguing thoughts by the Theosophists on absolution and the Dark Network.

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

Compare the below to: Link: “Prayer to the Cosmic Birther” … http://www.friendsofthecasa.info/CasaPrayersEnglish.pdf ..

ABSOLUTION DISSOLVES THE DARK NETWORK, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“The bodies of man are not, of course, separate in space, but interpenetrating. Looked at from below, however, they give the impression of being joined by innumerable fine wires or lines of fire. [This is the Dark Network in microcosm.]

“Every action which works against evolution puts an unequal strain upon these twists and entangles them. When a man goes badly wrong, the confusion becomes such that communication between the higher and lower bodies is seriously impeded; he is no longer his real self, … and only the lower side of the character is able to manifest itself fully.

“Whilst the natural forces will straighten out the distortion in due time, yet the Church provides for the work being done more speedily, for the power of straightening out this tangle in higher matter is one of those powers specifically conferred upon a priest at ordination. The co-operation of the man himself is, of course, also needed: for, ‘if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’

“The effect of ‘absolution’ is strictly limited to the correction of the distortion above described. It reopens certain channels, which have been to a large extent closed by evil thought or action; but it in no way counteracts the physical consequences of that action, nor does it obviate the necessity of restitution, where wrong has been done. The priest’s action straightens out the etheric, astral and mental entanglement, produced by the wrong action, or rather by the mental attitude which made that action possible; but it does not in any way relieve the man from the karmic penalty of his action. ‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.'”

A Myth of Creation: The First Outpouring: Atoms and Molecules . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 30 November 2013; revised and reposted

Dear Ones,

This is the second in a four-part series representing a Myth of Creation from the Theosophical school of thought, as stated in Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Chapter IV. The Formation of the Five Planes.”

FIRST OUTPOURING: ATOMS AND MOLECULES
by ARTHUR E. POWELL

“Continuing now with the creative process, The Third Logos, the Universal Mind, works on  of space – Mulaprakriti, the Celestial Virgin Mary throwing its three qualities of Tamas (Inertia), Rajas (Mobility), and Sattva (Rhythm) out of stable into unstable equilibrium, and therefore into continual motion in relation to each other.

“The Third Logos thus creates the atoms of the five lower planes—Atma, Buddhi, Manas, Kama, and Sthula: ‘Fohat electrifies into life and separates primordial stuff, or pre-genetic matter into atoms.’ …

“Under the directive activity of the Third Logos, the atoms of each plane are awakened to new powers and possibilities of attraction and repulsion, so that they aggregate into molecules, and simpler molecules into complex ones, until, on each of the five planes six lower sub-planes are formed, making, in all seven sub-planes on each plane.

“The matter of the sub-planes so formed, however, is not that now existing: it is the more strongly attractive or cohesive energies of the Second Logos, the aspect of Wisdom or Love, which brings about the further integrations into the forms of matter with which we are acquainted.

“Furthermore, the whirling currents in the atoms, known as spirillae, are not made by the Third Logos, but by the Monads , with whom we shall deal presently. The spirillae are developed into full activity in the course of evolution, normally one in each Round. Many of the practices of Yoga are directed to bring about the more rapid development of the spirillae.

“Thus in every atom lie involved innumerable possibilities of response to the three aspects of consciousness, and these possibilities are developed in the atom in the course of evolution. This work of the Third Logos is usually spoken of as the First Life Wave, or First Outpouring.”

A Myth of Creation: The Second Outpouring: Weaving of DNA? . by the Theosophists . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 November 2013; revised and reposted

Dear Ones,

This is the third in a four-part series representing a Myth of Creation from the Theosophical school of thought, as stated in Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Chapter V. The Kingdoms of Life.”

It is possible the second outpouring refers to the weaving of DNA strands, which in the passage below are termed ‘primary tissues’. Note that Judy Satori has referred to the women of Lyra as ‘weaving’ physical form. See …

Video: “The Song of Lyra,” by Judy Satori … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2l624c6GbE … Some say it may possibly help repair our DNA codes.

I love the analogy to the waterspout near the end of this long passage. It looked like the preceding info was needed to understand the waterspout, but maybe you could intuit it without reading anything but the bolded text.

SECOND OUTPOURING: WEAVING OF PRIMARY TISSUES (DNA STRANDS?)
by ARTHUR E. POWELL

“Into the matter vivified by the Third Logos, the second great wave of the divine life descends, coming from the Second Logos or Second Person of the Trinity,: this is usually known as the Second Outpouring….

“Slowly and gradually this resistless flood of life pours down through the various, planes and kingdoms, spending in each of them a period equal in duration, to one entire incarnation of a planetary chain, and covering many millions, of years….

“When it ensouls matter of the lower sub-planes of each plane, i.e., all the sub-planes below the atomic, which consist of molecular matter, it is known as Elemental Essence. This name is borrowed from the writings of mediaeval occultists, it having been bestowed by them on the matter of which the bodies, of nature spirits were composed: for they spoke of these as ‘Elementals’, dividing them into classes belonging to the elements of Fire, Air, Water and Earth.

 “When the Outpouring, or wave of the Divine Life – which in some previous aeon, has finished its downward evolution through the buddhic plane—pours down into the highest level of the mental plane, it ensouls great masses of atomic mental matter….

“The Wave of Life, then, having drawn together the matter of the Causal Plane, combines it into what at that level corresponds to substances, and of these substances builds forms which it inhabits. This is called the First Elemental, Kingdom….

“As we are here dealing with the Monadic essence on its downward arc, progress for it means descent into matter instead of as with us, ascent towards, higher planes. Hence this essence, even on the causal plane, is less evolved than we are, not more so: but it would perhaps be more accurate to say that it is less in-volved, as its e-volution, in the strict sense of that term has not yet commenced.

“There are seven subdivisions in the First Elemental Kingdom: the highest corresponds with the first sub-plane; the second, third and fourth correspond with the second sub-plane; the fifth, and sixth and seventh correspond with the third sub-plane.

“After spending a whole chain period evolving through different forms at that level, the wave of life, which is all the time pressing steadily downwards identifies itself so fully with these forms that, instead of occupying them and withdrawing from them periodically, it is able to hold them permanently and make them part of itself. When that stage is reached, it can proceed to the temporary occupation of forms at a still lower level. Accordingly it takes forms on the lower mental , or rupa [form] levels of the mental plane, and is known then as the Second, Elemental Kingdom….

“After spending a whole chain-period at this stage, the continuous downward, pressure has caused the process to repeat itself. Once more the life has identified itself with its forms, and has taken up its residence on the lower mental levels. Then it takes for itself forms of astral matter, and becomes the Third Elemental Kingdom….

“After spending a whole chain-period in the Third Elemental Kingdom, the life again identifies itself with those forms, and so is able to ensoul the etheric part of the mineral kingdom, becoming the life which vivifies that kingdom.

“In the course of the mineral evolution, the downward pressure again causes the life to identify itself with the etheric forms, and from those forms to ensoul, the denser matter of such minerals as are perceptible to our senses.

“What we know as the mineral kingdom includes, of course, not only what are usually called minerals, but also liquids, gases, and many etheric substances, as yet unknown to Western orthodox science….

“When the Outpouring has reached the central point of the mineral kingdom, the downward pressure ceases, and is replaced by an upward tendency. The ‘outbreathing’, has ceased, and the ‘inbreathing’ or indrawing has begun….

“…the Logos sends out a constant succession of waves of life, so that at any given time we find a number of them in operation. Thus we ourselves represent one such wave; the wave that immediately followed our wave now ensouls the animal kingdom; the wave behind that is now in the vegetable kingdom; a fourth is in the mineral stage; whilst a fifth, sixth and seventh are represented by the Three Elemental Kingdoms. All are successive, ripples of the same great Outpouring from the Second Aspect of the Logos.

“The whole scheme tends increasingly towards differentiation, the streams as they descend from kingdom to kingdom dividing and subdividing more and more….

“The process of subdivision continues until, at the end of the first great stage of evolution, it is finally divided into individualities, i.e., into men, each man being a separate and distinct soul, though at first, of course, an undeveloped soul.

“Looking at the work of the Second Life Waves, or Second Outpouring,-as a whole, we may fairly regard its downward sweep as concerned with the making of primary tissues, out of which in due time, subtle and dense bodies will be formed. In certain ancient scriptures this process has been aptly called ‘weaving’.

“The materials which are prepared by the Third Logos, are woven by the Second Logos into threads and fabrics out of which future garments –  i.e., bodies — will be made.

“The Third Logos may be thought of as a Chemist, working as in a laboratory; the Second Logos we may regard as the Weaver, working as in manufactory, Materialistic as are these similes, they are useful as crutches for the understanding.

“The Second Logos thus ‘weaves’ various kinds of cloth, i.e., of material, out of which will later be made the causal and mental bodies of men; out of the cloth of astral matter, of desire stuff, will later be made the astral bodies of men.

“Thus are fashioned the materials of the mechanism of consciousness, the characteristics of each class of material being determined by the nature of the aggregations of particles – texture, colour, density, and so forth.

“All this downward sweep of the life-wave through the planes, giving qualities to the many grades of matter, is a preparation for evolution and is often and more properly, called involution.

The Devas and the Nature Spirits . by the Theosophists

Revised; originally published 30 Nov 2013

Dear Ones,

Here are thoughts by the School of Theosophy on the Devic Kingdom … the devas, nature spirits, elves, fairies, trolls, gnomes, and so on.

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

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….
THE DEVAS AND THE NATURE SPIRITS, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“The Second Outpouring, in addition to its work of forming the Elemental and other Kingdoms, also brings with it evolved beings, at various stages of development, who form the normal and typical inhabitants of the Three Elemental Kingdoms. These beings have been brought over by the Logos from a preceding evolution. They are now sent forth to inhabit the plane for which their development fits them; they co-operate with the work of the Logos, and later with man, in the general scheme of evolution. From them, man derives his perishable bodies.

“They are known in some religions as Angels, to Hindus as Devas—meaning literally, Shining Ones. Plato speaks of them as ‘Minor Gods’. It is the translation of the word ‘Deva’ as ‘Gods’ which has led to much misapprehension of Eastern thought. The ‘thirty-three crores (330 millions) of Gods’, are not Gods in the Western sense of the term, but are Devas or Shining Ones.

“Of these there are many grades, including representatives on each of the five lower planes, i.e.,  those of Atma, Buddhi, Manas, Kama, and the etheric part of the physical plane.

“Their bodies are formed of the Elemental Essence of the Kingdom to which they belong, and are flashing and many-hued, changing form at the will of the entity Himself. They form a vast host, ever actively at work, labouring at the Elemental Essence to improve its quality, taking it to form their own bodies, throwing it off again and taking other portions, so as to render it more sensitive.

“In the First Elemental Kingdom, on the higher mental or causal plane, they make materials ready to clothe abstract thoughts. In the Second Elemental Kingdom, on the lower mental plane, they make materials ready to clothe concrete thoughts. In the Third Elemental Kingdom, on the astral plane, they prepare materials for the clothing of desires.

“At the stage which we are now considering, this work of improving the Elemental Essence, is the only work there is for them to do. Later on, they are also constantly busied in the shaping of forms, in aiding human egos on the way to incarnation in building their new bodies, bringing materials of the kind required and helping in its arrangements. The less advanced the ego, the greater the directive work of the Devas. With animals they do almost all the work, and practically all with the vegetables and minerals. They are the active, agents of the Logos, carrying out all details of His world-plan, and aiding, the countless evolving lives to find materials they need for their clothing and use. Included with them are the vast numbers of the fairy kingdom, known as nature spirits, trolls, gnomes, and by countless other names.

“Some description of these hosts of beings is given in The Astral Body and The Mental Body, so that there is no need to describe them further here. All we are really concerned with at the moment is their origin, and the part they play in helping the Monads to commence their evolution in the lower planes.

“The term Deva is, strictly speaking, not wide enough to cover all the living agencies which are employed in the work connected with the Monads and their long pilgrimage through the lower worlds. This work is carried out by no less than seven orders of beings, known collectively as Creative Hierarchies, the Monads, themselves, curiously enough, being one of the seven.

“For our present purposes, however, in order not to make the description too complicated and involved, we shall denote all these agencies by the single term Devas. In a later and separate chapter we shall to some extent go over the ground again more in detail, and give the names and functions [so far as these are known] of the seven Creative Hierarchies.

“Thus we see that before any embodied consciousness, save that of the Logos and His Creative Hierarchies, could appear, or do anything at all, a vast preliminary work had to be accomplished, preparing the ‘form-side’ of the field of evolution.”

The Will to Live and to Create . by the Theosophists

Revised; originally published 27 November 2013

Dear Ones,

Here are the Theosophists on the will to live and to create.

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

………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
THE WILL TO LIVE AND CREATE, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“We are here, in the worlds of matter, because we, as Monads, willed to live: We are Self-moved, Self-determined.

“This Divine impulse, striving ever after fuller manifestation of life, is seen everywhere in nature, and has often been spoken of as the Will-to-live. It appears in the seed, which pushes its growing point up towards the light, in the bud bursting its prison and expanding in the sunshine. It is the creative genius in the painter, the sculptor, the poet, the musician, the craftsman. The subtlest pleasure, the keenest savour of exquisite delight, derives from this urge, from within, to create. All things feel most alive when multiplying themselves by creation. To expand, to increase, results from the Will-to-live: The fruition is the Bliss of living, the joy of being alive.”

–from Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Chapter III: The Coming Forth of the Monads.”

Image: Two women and a man on the phone at the same time … http://www.thecine-files.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/pillowtalk.jpg .. 

This picture is from the 1959 movie “Pillow Talk” about two people who share a ‘party’ telephone line and despise each other. I am reminded of how my parents had a party line when I was little. My mom used to say to us, “Now, children, if you pick up the phone and hear someone talking [that would be the other family on our party line], then just put the phone down very gently. Be sure not to listen in! It’s not polite.” Once I picked up, heard a voice, listened to two words, and mom caught me in the act. Never again!

Dear Ones,

ON MODULATING TELEPATHIC COMMUNICATION: INTRODUCTION

This post is about modulating telepathic communication. Maybe a metaphor will help explain this: Let’s say you are a radio, situated in someone’s room. You are playing a radio station you like, and you figure they will like it too. But they are complaining! This music is too loud! I do not like country and western music! Switch to the pop music! And you do not know what to do. You do not know how to turn the radio down.

So that is one situation. And here is another: You are the one sitting in your living room. There is a radio in there … Wonder how it got there? It starts playing C&W. You really prefer pop music, and right now you are in the mood for no music at all. You go to look, and find the radio disappears into thin air the moment you try to turn it off. The minute you turn around, there is that music again.

Now, what to do about the radio? How to turn it down? How to turn it off? That is what I mean by Telepathic Modulation.

ON BEING TELEPATHICALLY LINKED TO PEOPLE WITH WHOM YOU DO NOT WANT TO CLAIR CHAT

Right now, I am in a situation where I am only linking to a few people, and not out of free will. Same thing from their point of view. Now one could look at this as the curse of the ages, or one could think of it as a learning experience … for instance, a chance to learn Telepathic Modulation.

There is going to come a day … in the not-too-distant future … when we are all telepathic and clear in our auras and minds. When that day comes, it will be safe for us to be linked to the crystal grid of Earth, and to the core of Earth. That linkup will give us the ability to communicate telepathically with anyone on Earth. Intuition tells me that there are fail-safes in place … energy thresholds that must be surmounted before we can link with the crystal grid. These fail-safes stop us from getting too much power before we are prepared to use it wisely. So, no worries in that regard, thank goodness.

ON THE FALL OF EARTH AND THE UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHT CLOUD OF THE WORLD

Judy Satori (1) speaks of a golden age from which Earth fell long ago. During the intervening aeons … a period of about 100,000 years … mankind fell from its inherent greatness to a state resembling that of animals. One aspect of this degradation was a partial return from our true state of individualization (2) to the group consciousness of animals. (3)

As we became less aware, and grew in numbers, the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World grew in power, and became more influential in our lives. Right now, largely due to urban crowding and the subconscious influence of mass media, the state of humanity is such that most of our actions are influenced by the collective unconscious, as is the case in the animal kingdom.

‘MIND CONTROL’ . A PUTATIVE TERM

Image: Man in tuxedo attempting to hypnotize … https://media1.tenor.com/images/e8993e2a9c10edfef270bd5e6c1e8915/tenor.gif?itemid=11874815 … DESCRIPTION: There are black and white concentric circles in the background, and he holds up a chain from which swings a disc with black and white concentric circles on it. The caption reads: Estou te hipnotizando

This influence of the collective unconscious is what is preventing us from achieving Telepathic Modulation right now. As a consequence, telepathy is tinged with elements of dominance and submission. (4)

Many call this ‘mind control’ … although this term is surely a misnomer, considering that we humans are not yet fully in control of our own minds, so the notion of controlling other minds is one step removed from the true cause. That true cause being the iron clad grip of the collective unconscious, internalized as the Shadow of the Personality … also termed ‘distortions in our morphogenetic field,’ or ‘ karmic accretions stored in our akashic records,’ about which I have written elsewhere.

So, let’s say we are in the room with the unwanted radio. Seems to us like an attempt at ‘mind control.’ We would like to exercise a little mind control from our end of the situation, and get ‘whoever’ to take the dad-blamed radio away! But no matter how hard we try, with affirmations and imprecations, it does not happen. The radio keeps on reappearing in our living room.

Last night, in the middle of the night, when the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World was at its power peak … I awoke with a very strong, unwanted navel point corded connection to someone who was fed up with inability to modulate telepathy. Apparently at their wits’ end, not knowing what else to do, this person was attempting to influence the situation through mind control.

Not again! What a nuisance! I placed a heart-felt plea with Spirit …

. . . . .

BLESSING FOR FREE WILL
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
25 April 2013

Let there be no more Mind Control anywhere on Earth!
May all beings be free! Powerful!
Able to modulate their telepathic abilities through free will!

. . . . .

I was feeling a state close to despair when I made this plea. This mind control thing had happened so many times before. I could tell how enmeshed I was with the mental and emotional bodies of those on the other end of my personal telepathic Party Line. Would I never be clear enough to exercise free will in this regard? And with those thoughts I fell back asleep.

The next morning … as is so often the case … I awoke with promptings that just seemed to materialize out of thin air. It was a certain ‘knowing’ based on nothing I could remember from the past. Where does this ‘knowing’ come from, anyway? The techniques conveyed by this ‘knowing’ turned out to be spot on, as well. So, here is the scoop …

. . . . .

YOGA BY ALICE: NAVEL POINT CHURNING TO INVIGORATE AND SMOOTHE THE ETHERIC BODY
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
25 April 2013

Benefits: This exercise helps re-establish individualization, a sense of ‘I Am I,’ or of personal empowerment. It helps integrate and strengthen the etheric body. It also helps turn off the ‘telepathic radio’.

Background Information. Clairvoyants have seen, in the area of the lower abdomen of the subtle body known as the etheric body, an etheric organ known as the sexual chakra, from which physical vitality emanates. This organ is shaped like a double funnel (with a front and aback funnel) that has 6 petals or gears.

Above that, at about the level of the navel point or umbilicus, is an etheric organ known as the solar plexus chakra, seat of will power. This organ is shaped like a double funnel (with a front and aback funnel) that has 10 petals or gears.

Because of the navel point’s location in the abdomen, where the sexual chakra and the solar plexus chakra are, pumping the navel point in an out (also termed ‘churning’ the navel point) will stimulate both physical vitality and will power.

Directions: Churn the abdomen at the level of the navel point slowly and gently in and out. Place your awareness on this gentle movement. Continue this practice as long as needed, whenever you wish to terminate telepathic communication.

. . . . .

THE SPLEEN ORGANELLE (SPLEEN CHAKRA)

Here is some background information on the Spleen Organelle (called by many the ‘Spleen Chakra’)

Take a look at these drawings …

Image: Chakras, According to the School of Theosophy, side view … http://www.douglasbaker.org/zencart/images/5466.jpg ..

Image: Chakras, According to the School of Theosophy, frontal view … http://www.geocities.ws/etherica/chakra1.jpg ..

The above-referenced drawings of the chakras are very different from many chakric drawings.

  • They show a basal chakra at the base of the spine.
  • Above it, a five-petal disk at the navel point, indicating the seat of will power.
  • Missing is the sexual chakra, possibly out of modesty.
  • Then on the left side of the torso, the spleen chakra (which I term the ‘spleen organelle’), through which vitality globules (from sunshine) enter and invigorate the body.

Image: Vitality Globule, According to Theosophy, and a Crop Circle Resembling a Vitality Globule … https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/9c/74/97/9c7497c94a5e48ee3462c51fcdc525ef.jpg ..

Here is another version of the chakras, including more points …

Image: Chakras including points under the lowermost left and right ribs … http://www.esoterik.se/images/chakra4.jpg?crc=4114518419 ..

You will notice a standard set of chakras along the spine, with two additional points I would like to describe in more detail …

  • Starting at the base of the spine, a disk representing the basal chakra.
  • Above it the sexual or ‘sacral’ chakra.
  • Above these two points, at about the level of the navel point, or a little higher, is the navel point, the chakra that is the seat of will.
  • Then, these two unusual chakras or points between the sacral chakra and the navel point, and not on the centerline, but rather on each side of the body …
    • The larger of these is on the left side of the body, from the point of view of the embodied person. This is associated to the spleen chakra (which I prefer to call the spleen organelle), and to that part of the kundalini energy termed the Ida.
    • The smaller is on the right side of the body, from the point of view of the embodied person. This is associated to that part of the kundalini energy termed the pingala.
  • Then the heart chakra, the throat chakra, the third-eye point, and the crown chakra.

Intuitively, I would say that these four points …

  • The sacral chakra,
  • The Spleen Organelle (ida point)
  • The pingala point, and
  • The navel point

… when strengthened and harmonize, represent flowering of the kundalini energy. For more on the role these two points below the ribs play, see …

Link: “In Depth Articles” … http://www.esoterik.se/artiklar.html ..

It is to these two relatively unknown points … the Spleen Organelle, or Ida Point, and the Pingala Point, that I refer in the below meditation.

MEDITATIONS AND VISUALIZATIONS BY ALICE: PHYSICAL INVIGORATION THROUGH INHALING VITALITY GLOBULES
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
25 April 2013

Benefits. I gave the below meditation a try, with amazing results: My whole body became filled with vibrant energy.

Directions. Sitting in a chair, with back straight and feet flat on the floor, concentrate your awareness on the Spleen Organelle (the Ida Point), located just under the lowest left rib, a little lower than the spleen.

Imagine vitality globules being pulled toward this chakra, swirled around in it, and then streaming out into the various parts of the body.

Or, if the right side of your body is weak, concentrate your awareness on the abdomen just under the lowest right rib (at the Pingala Point). Imagine as above, only at the new location.

Continue until you feel completely full of energy.

MEDITATIONS AND VISUALIZATIONS BY ALICE: EMOTIONAL BODY SMOOTHING TO TURN DOWN THE VOLUME ON THE ‘TELEPATHIC RADIO’: THREE TECHNIQUES

. . . . .

Emotional Body Smoothing: Slow, Deep Breath and Slow Stomach Churning
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
25 April 2013 

Benefits. This will increase circulation of the vital energy, and smoothe the emotional body.

Directions. Sit down cross-legged on the floor, or sit, with spine vertical, in a straight-backed chair. Place your hands in your lap, palms up, and begin breathing deeply and slowly. As you do so, gently churn the stomach.

If the issue of telepathic modulation comes up again, repeat, as needed, this process of gently churning the stomach with a deep, slow breath. And that will be that!

. . . . .

EMILY POST FOR TELEPATHS

The Emily Post guidelines for polite telepathic communications have yet to be written. As a near substitute …

Link: “How to Be Polite on the Phone,” by WikiHow’s staff … http://www.wikihow.com/Be-Polite-on-the-Phone ..

… looked like a good start … it is a list of good phone manners that so frequently get left behind in the rush of modern life.

As a case in point, sometimes we may get calls from telepaths that are angry or disparaging in tone, and we may not know how to deal with the incoming negativity … especially when the caller will not hang up. This may indicate a need to build one’s own self-esteem and self-respect.
