Dear Ones,

I’d like to talk to you today about Desire and the place where many of us are right now in the Awakening process.

This is about the nature and importance of Desire (which is the function of the astral body) in our current process of mastering the fourth dimension (i.e., the astral plane) and coming into our true power as human beings in the fifth dimension …

KAMA-MANAS

Over the holidays, I was reading  “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” a book compiled by Arthur E. Powell, which, as I understand it, consists mainly of channeling of the work of the ascended master Djwhal Khul.

The part I was reading was so deep that I only read a couple of pages on the function of the astral body:

Link: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena” by Arthur E. Powell (a compendium of channelings of the Ascended Master Djwhal Khul), available from www.amazon.com … pages 23, 24 and 26

I’m sorry to say that, due to copyright restrictions, I can’t quote this passage, which I feel is a very important one. If you are able to obtain a copy of the book and take a look at the three pages cited above, I feel certain it will deepen your understanding on the topics I’ve presented below.

For me, reading the passage acted as a ‘springboard’ into a merging of the new Ascension knowledge with the older tradition of Theosophy. So you’ll find below references to the passage in Powell’s book, with my own thoughts on how Theosophical lore represents an astral-realm bridge of understanding, that may help today’s very secular-oriented society deal with the Ascension symptoms and clair abilities they’re beginning to experience.

We human beings here on Earth are passing from the merely physical and lower mental realms into a deeper understanding of the astral realms, preparatory to awakening to the fifth dimension, which, for most beings on Earth today, is unexplored territory, depending, as it does, on expansion of the human energy field beyond the causal realm.

The topics described in the above passage are of interest right now because knowing more about the astral body helps us to understand our journey at this moment. I’ll briefly glance over some of the topics presented by Powell …

The astral body has to do with Desire. Another word for Desire is the word KâmaThe notion of Kâma includes every sort of feeling, and not just thirst, or hunger, or desire to have sex. The Bible calls it ‘the lust of the flesh’ …

15 “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” — 1 John 2 (KJV – public domain)

So as we human beings are journeying into a deeper awareness of the astral plane, we are, in fact, encountering those emotions.

According to Powell, it is Kâma that binds us to the Duality Play, the world of sensory phenomena. Powell refers to the our animal nature as the ‘ape and the tiger’. The immediate context of this quote from Tennyson is:

“…Arise and fly
The reeling Faun, the sensual feast;
Move upward, working out the beast,
And let the ape and tiger die.”
–from “In Memoriam,” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, public domain

So then Powell goes on to speak about how the quality of desire is knit together with the quality of mind, or Manas, in a human being. Theosophists often refer to the union of Desire and Mind as the driving force of intelligence, Kâma-Manas.

I feel that, typically in men, you’ll find a greater ratio of Manas, or mind, in this balance, and typically in women, you’ll find a greater ratio of Kâma, or Desire. The two together create the emotional awareness of human beings, without which we would never accomplish anything in the world. We could sit, and think … The Thinker, you know? … all day long, but without Desire, nothing would ever come forth into reality.

NEGATIVE EMOTIONS PREVENT CO-CREATION OF FIFTH DIMENSIONAL REALITY

Now, one definition of the fifth dimension is that we will all realize our innate ability as eternal Souls to become co-creators of reality. In the astral plane that we’re engaging in right now, and becoming aware of, that quality of co-creation exists, but because it’s only semi-aware, because the awareness is stifled by the negative kilter of the emotions … what we were talking about: lust, greed, pride or ‘conceit’, anger or rage, and attachment (the ‘five thieves’ as they say in India: kaam, lobh, ahankar, krodh, moh) (1) … these negatively tilted renditions of the basic fabric of Space and Time and Awareness, which is Love and Light and Joy … this slight negative kilter creates a kind of unawareness in us, as true awareness is of Love and Light and Joy.

So, when we engage in these emotions, we become relatively unaware, and consequently the reality that we create is an untrue, off-kilter version of what is. In the Christian aethos, in the Christian tradition, this off-kilter world expresses itself as a gradation of Light … from hellworlds, through Purgatory, on into the Light of Heaven.

CHOOSING POSITIVE EMOTIONS SO AS TO NAVIGATE TO THE HIGHER ASTRAL PLANES

Why is there this difference, this stratification of the astral plane? Because a being, as it begins to realize what it truly is, rises in vibration in the fourth dimension, from the depths of the hellworlds to the highest reaches of heaven.

How does it do this? Through the emotions. Years ago, Tom Kenyon (2), channeling the Hathors and the Hathor Archives, wrote that the emotion of gratitude, and the simple emotion of appreciation, would be what saved us through this process … what would save us from the nightmare realms of the fourth dimension. And I agree to that.

Peggy Black (3), who is his student, also mentions that gratitude is the thing that we need. That word is what gets us a discount on her courses, and that feeling is what gets us through the fourth dimension with ease and grace. And I agree completely with all of that. We can overcome the negativeness of our emotions by simply thinking about gratitude.

ON SURROUNDING THE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS WE EXPERIENCE WITH A FEELING OF PERSONAL SAFETY

One of the things that prevent us from expressing positive emotions is the feeling that we are not safe. Matt Kahn (4) has done quite an interesting video on this just recently, about how we can feel safe.

And his notion about that is, that for every unsafe emotion that we experience, including the list mentioned above … if I feel jealous, for instance, what we can say … if I understand him correctly … is, “I feel safe to be aware that I feel jealous at this moment.”

We could, as I understand it, use this same technique for every negative emotion that we feel. If I feel angry, enraged, whatever it is, what I could say is, “I feel safe to be aware that I feel angry at this moment.”

And by placing this positive tilt on the negative emotion, we can come through this with grace and ease. We can come through this well.

ON USING PRANAYAM, THE SCIENCE OF BREATH, TO OVERCOME NEGATIVE EMOTIONS

Yogi Bhajan, of 3HO, once gave a lecture on how desires arise automatically in us, and how pranayama, the science of the breath, helps us develop the personality and hone our intellect by expanding the aura, for the sake of prosperity, projection, and personality …

Link: “Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Excerpts from a lecture given on 8/31/82 in Stockholm, Sweden,” https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/ten-bodies/characteristics-ten-bodies/yogi-bhajan-lecture-pranic-body ..

To get back to Matt Kahn, as I recall, he has also spoken recently about getting through this process of Awakening to the astral plane breath by breath … of slowing the breath and relaxing the body when we feel we have been attacked by others on the astral plane. So by becoming aware of our breathing, we can overcome the negative emotions, and also stop negative clairaudient chatter by not reacting as anticipated by any negative clair ‘sender’.

Keeping in mind that this sort of clair chatter often emanates from the untrained Lower Mental Bodies of those near and dear to us.

CONCLUSION

From this whole discussion, I’d like to present just two facts:

  • The Nature of Desire. One is that Desire, in itself, is not a bad thing. If you imagine that a thought is a car, then Desire is like the gasoline that allows the car to go to the place we have in mind. In the same way, if we have a thought about co-creating the new reality, Desire is the power that expresses this thought as physical reality. So Desire, in itself, is not a bad thing. It’s a necessary thing for us, as co-creators of reality.
  • Awareness of Negative Desire Is Essential to Developing Astral Plane Navigational Skills. And on the other hand, awareness of negative Desire is essential to this process that we’re going through now, because without it, we can’t rise to the fifth dimension, which is defined as a state of supreme joy, and love, and light. So in order for that to happen, we have to become aware of when we’re not feeling that way. And so, to create the true reality, we have to overcome desires that are not true.

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

Devic and Human Evolution … by Alice B. Clagett

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.

This book is available at Google Books and at Amazon.com ..

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 …

heart-chakra1

Image: “Christian Baptismal Sylph — A living being of white flame, shaped like a fiery cross,” by Alice B. Clagett, 15 August 2013, CC BY-SA 4.0 … There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward. In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. –from “On Experiencing the Desire Body of the World,” by Alice B. Clagett, in “I Am of the Stars,” https://www.iamofthestars.com

Image: “Christian Baptismal Sylph — A living being of white flame, shaped like a fiery cross,” by Alice B. Clagett, 15 August 2013, CC BY-SA 4.0 … There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward. In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. 

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:

Image: Abstract image of a warrior-like figure with a fiery cross of white light on it; the sides of the cross look like wings:  https://i.pinimg.com/736x/a1/9a/d0/a19ad07d35d41da266dda6377dda5ca5–alien-art-angels-and-demons.jpg ..

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:

Image: St. Francis’ vision of a seraph, from a fresco attributed to Giotto di Bondone, 1 January 1337, from Wikipedia … public domain

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’ve 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’ve 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

Astral Passion and The Exercise of Will Power … by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 August 2015; revised on 16 December 2018

Image: “Thrall Water Vision: from “Elemental Bonds … Desire,” in Gamepedia … https://wow.gamepedia.com/Elemental_Bonds:_Desire#/media/File:Thrall_Water_Vision.jpgThis is a murky blue image, as if underwater, of two people standing on a table, both wearing sleeveless robes and thick gauntlets. The one on the left looks like a very muscular man, with chains around his forearms, waist, and thighs. The one on the right looks like a woman, or maybe a samurai, with hair in a topknot, face darkly obscured, maybe six inches taller than the other person. It looks like there is a chess piece, possibly a living being, maybe 5 inches tall, in the air between them, at about the level of their calves.

Dear Ones,

According to the Theosophist Charles W. Leadbeater, “The astral world has many points in common with the physical; just like the physical, it presents different appearances to different people, and even to the same person at different periods of his career. It is the home of emotions and of lower thoughts; and emotions are much stronger in that world than in this.” –from “A Textbook of Theosophy,” by C. W. Leadbeater (2004). Urbana, Illinois: Project Gutenberg. Retrieved 24 August 2015, from http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12902 ..

As we step into the Ascension process, the path to Christ consciousness, our Awareness begins to expand beyond the gross physical plane, and into the astral plane (and onward to the Christ consciousness plane, which some call the Fifth Dimension). Those of us who were previously unable to sense the raw and sometimes raging emotions (whether of rapture or of intense suffering) that are characteristic of the astral plane are now beginning to do so.

This passage, which describes how very intensely emotions are felt on the astral plane, offers a context for the phenomenon of en masse astral rape that is being experienced as humankind goes through the process of Awakening …

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 IX: Sleep Life,” pp 86-87, starting with the last paragraph on page 86 (the paragraph beginning “The astral world …”), which continues onto page 87.  

When awareness of the astral plane first begins to dawn on the Awakening human, then a grueling task is set before him or her, by the very force of this awareness:

  • He must learn to tame his ‘desire elemental’.
  • He must begin, step by step, to master the first three, tribal chakras (what is called, in yoga, the ‘lower triangle’).

LInk: “Elemental Bonds: Desire,” in Wowpedia .. https://wow.gamepedia.com/Elemental_Bonds:_Desire ..

As Powell says, this is quite do-able. Only, we must understand that it is possible to tame the Desire World. As he describes in the below passage, suffering (such as the painful emotions around the sensation of astral rape) can, through exertion of will power on the astral plane, be made to disappear immediately:

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 IX: Sleep Life,” p 87, the second paragraph on page 87 (beginning “An advantage of …”).

On the astral plane, suffering in the hellworlds is far more starkly insufferable than is suffering while one is in physical form. But precisely because of the bitterness of this suffering, lessons regarding Soul ignorance can be learned more quickly.

  • And so, in the furor of the (second chakra) astral rape scene we fall into, we learn to discipline and perfect our procreative urge.
  • In the same way, in the fury of the (first chakra) Predator – Prey astral scene, we learn to live and let live.
  • And in the (third chakra) ‘I will mind-control the world’ astral dreamland, we learn to offer our magnificent individualized contribution to the All.

The Elohim, who design our experiences of Soul learning, and who have our own highest ends in their great hearts, no doubt consider the intensity of the hellworld learning experience useful to the evolving Soul, as expediency is always, from their perspective, a worthy consideration. Likewise, to the evolving Soul itself, prior to incarnation, and unfettered by physical or astral form, the importance of expediting Soul evolution through suffering the consequences of poor free-will decisions would be crystal clear.

In my own understanding of the astral realm, moving from the hellworlds to the heavenworlds is more explicitly a question of exerting the will power to change one’s emotions from the darkling emotions to the sparkling emotions:

  • from anger, hatred, despair, pain and suffering, fear, annoyance, envy, greed, and pride
  • to love and joy, gratitude and appreciation, and a feeling of perfect well-being

In that way, all in an instant, our astral scenery changes …

  • Where there were Demons and Devils and such,
  • now there are Angelic forms, men in raiment of Light, great scholars, great scientists, and the great mystics of yore.

Dear Ones,

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

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

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

HOW DRUG USE MAKES ASTRAL MATTER COARSE

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

WHAT ASTRAL COARSENESS ATTRACTS INTO A PERSON’S LIFE

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

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

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

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

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL. Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” from page 72, fourth paragraph beginning “Astral matter responds” through page 73, the second full paragraph ending “an outburst of passion.”

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

“Unhappy shades, if sinful and sensual, they wander about . . . until their death-hour comes. Cut off in the full flush of earthly passions, which bind them to familiar scenes, they are enticed by opportunities which mediums afford to gratify them vicariously. They are the Pishachas, the Incubi and Succubi of medieval times: the demons of thirst, gluttony, lust and avarice : elementaries of intensified craft, wickedness and cruelty: provoking their victims to horrid crimes, and revelling in their commission.” –from “The Theosophical Writings of Annie Besant,” by Annie Besant, CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

SATANIC INFLUENCE: MIND CONTROL, SPELLS, CURSES

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

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

This is not an easy contract to annul. It takes great determination, and a turning away from this dark energy to the bright light of Christ consciousness. See …

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

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

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

REGAINING LOST GROUND

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

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL. Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” from page 70, paragraph 6 beginning “The astral body…” through page 71, the first two paragraphs (ending “progress at all …”)

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

WHAT TO DO ABOUT ASTRAL HAUNTING BY DRUG USERS

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

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

COCAINE AND THE LION’S GATE

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

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

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

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