Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is a video of sunlight peeking through a tree that reminds me of a deva I have spoken of priorly. I read, just now, about tree spirits; it seems there is a different spirit for every tree. That made me whether large trees such as this one might attract more august beings such as devas.

Then again, it may be that the spirits of trees transform from little tree spirits, to larger tree spirits as the tree grows … and then, at a certain point in the tree’s majority, might they not transform to devahood? … As is the case with the sylph that sleeps in the heart of a baptized baby, and which may, as the Christian matures in faith, transform to an august seraph; which transformation is described here …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO: SOUNDTRACK AND WORDS

 

Introduction

I have a series of channelings regarding the Saturnians for you; they are with sound but without the usual type of pictures. A number of people were involved in the channeling. And then the Saturnians also were involved.

The people that were involved in the channeling … and I as well … have this sentiment with regard to it: It seems that it is information that has not been channeled before … or if it has, that the records of the channeling have been lost, or have been kept secret, as mysteries of various faiths.

So we who channeled this information are not sure how it ought to be held. We do not know the degree of veracity or purity of the channeling. But we thought it best to let people know about it anyway. Of course, it is quite possible that, in the near or distant future, many more pure channelings may take place with regard to the Saturnians.

But here, for what it is worth, is what we have learned this night, and this day, regarding the Saturnians. We all hope it will be of help in uplifting humankind.

God bless you all and keep you, in love and Light and joy and peace.

The Saturnian Home World

Ok, this is quite a bit of intel here. It has to do with the Saturnians. Various people were channeling and listening to the answers from the Saturnians. It goes like this … I hope I can remember it all …

We asked about their home world Saturn, and where they lived on it. They said, under the rim. There is a ring, and just inside the rim of the ring, on the side of the rim in the direction of the planet, is where they live. I do not know if the ring spins around or not, but they say they stay in the same place relative to the planet, on the underside of the rim of the ring.

So that is what I have heard: Inside of the rim is where they like to live. There is a constant humming sound there, and they love that humming sound. They live by sound; they love sound.

I asked about a moon; I think there is a moon also of Saturn. And they said it goes crossways across the ring every once in a while. (1) And when it does there is a noise that seems ‘horrid’ to them. The last time the noise happened, the words were ‘all hell broke loose’ … or something that reminds me of that term.

Various people were asking whether they had days and nights there. The answer, they said, was ‘yes’. The time is different from Earth time, though. For instance, they quoted me a month for gestation of a child. Then we asked if it was the same in our days and nights, and they said ‘no’, it was a year for us.

[This channeling about time on Saturn and on Earth needs clarification, I feel. I have read that a year on Saturn lasts 29 Earth years. Dividing 29 by 12, I arrive at 2.4 Earth years in a Saturnian month. There is a chance that they may mean something different by the word ‘month’ than the division of a year by 12. It may be difficult for them to pin down the meaning of the word because of the short duration of Saturnian days. A day on Saturn lasts only 10 and a half hours; thus, I have read, there are about 24.5 thousand Saturnian ‘days’ in each of their years; by my calculation, that would be about 2040 days in a Saturnian month.]

Saturnian Procreation

Then someone asked the manner of having children. The Saturnians said that one person … one Saturnian … divides, and then the baby comes into being between the two halves. They said: First we get a ‘simmering’ feeling. And then we get a ‘catacomb’ feeling. And then is when we divide.

That Catacomb Feeling. This is my intuitive notion about their term ‘that catacomb feeling’: I get the feeling that there is something very dark… a dark, round space. And within it is something precious or sacred … something that is bound for resurrection. So the darkness protects the resurrecting being. And the natural physical symbol of that, I understood to be like the California walnut tree, which has a walnut shell that is first green, and then dark and then gets hard. The walnut shell surrounds the walnut hull that protects the walnut meat, which is destined to become a new walnut tree.

And so the being that was the Saturnian opens and divides into two … unlike the walnut, which is just one spherical thing. This Saturnian being becomes two. But the inside of the hull is a round, dark space that protects the resurrecting being, just as the walnut tree resurrects through the walnut.

So the being itself that was, may be pouring its resurrecting energy into the walnut, and the outside may be becoming less and less full of vital energy … do you not know? … as it becomes less and less important to protect that which is being born within.

And then they said there was a round baby in between. This is the time … the year of gestation that happens. And then after that, they said … after about a month … now I do not know if it is our month or their month … [or what the duration of the ‘month’ truly is, by Earth standards] … they started to have a state of disorder or disrepair, or disarray, in themselves. So then they would get a feeling that others would carry on; and then they would ‘go’.

I said: How often does this happen?

And they said: Only once in our lifetime.

And I said: How long do you live after you have that child?

And they said that they pass soon thereafter.

I said: Well then, if it is only once in a lifetime, then that must be difficult, because you don’t have any practice. How would you know what to do, or what to expect?

And they said that they chat around with each other, and so they know what to do.

Interspecies Communication

Oh, one other thing: I said: How do you communicate with us? And they said: It’s a long-distance kind of thing.

Cosmic Rays

There was some talk about cosmic rays. As you may know, the level of cosmic rays hitting Earth right now … during this very deep Solar Minimum that we are experiencing … is very high. There are a lot of cosmic rays hitting Earth right now. And I was wondering if we are talking to the Saturnians right now because the atmosphere of Earth resembles more the atmosphere of Saturn than it would during a Solar Maximum. In other words, the atmosphere is thinner here on Earth right now.

It seems likely to me … this is just a guess … that the atmosphere of Saturn is gaseous but that Saturn itself is not so dense as Earth, and that, because of that lack of density, cosmic rays can penetrate to the very heart of Saturn … more so than here on Earth.

[I did some research on this. The atmosphere of Saturn is much thicker than that of Earth, but the atmosphere of the rings of Saturn, where, according to this channeling, the Saturnians live, is much thinner than that of Earth, and most likely, I feel, much more susceptible to cosmic ray bombardment than is the human habitat on the surface of Earth. That would mean that the Saturnians are accustomed to, and at home with, high intensity of cosmic rays in their home environment. (2) ]

If the Saturnians were created for that environment, that would be the environment that they would love. It may be that they feel more at home here on Earth when the atmosphere is less dense, as it is right now. And so that might be why we are talking to them right now.

As to the topic of Saturnians living within our human energy field, it seems to me that their beingness might be mostly ultraviolet in color. It may have something to do with cosmic rays, and so it may be through the cosmic rays that they intersect our energy field in the higher dimensions. I am sorry I cannot be more definite than that; this is just a theory.

From the perspective of my own clair hearing and vision, it seems to me that we communicate with the Saturnians when there are more cosmic rays in our atmosphere, as now. It is like this: It feels like a cone of sound in the ultrahigh frequency, extending from the crown chakra … the seventh chakra oldstyle … up above the head … very high up; perhaps three feet up … and full of energies of ultrasound, varying … like talking beyond the range of human hearing.

In terms of the clairvoyant faculty, it seems to me that this cone is shimmering with different movements of photons … of Light … like wearing a starry crown shaped like that … shaped like a very high hat … even, you might say, like Merlin’s wizard’s hat, only instead of having stars and new moons on a black background, it is shimmering lights and sounds. The Saturnians call this the ‘learning hat’, or words to that effect …

How Might We Best Channel Messages from the Saturnians to Humankind?

While the channeling by the Saturnians was taking place, I was speaking with another human being with regard to how we might transfer or channel information by sound from the Saturnians to humankind … because the main part of their message may have to do with sound that is beyond the range of human hearing … ultrasound.

Alice’s Stories: How the Heart’s Sylph Can Unite the Voices of the Congregation as One Harmonic. I have a suggestion and a theory about that, based on an experience that happened in church today, while we were singing. I had noticed, for a long time, a jarring sensation when I attempted to sing in accompaniment to the hymns as part of the congregation at the church … a feeling that the energy of my song was not flowing optimally with the energy of the song that filled the room.

Today I tried, with the first hymn, placing my Awareness in the hridaya chakra … the deep, inner sanctum of the heart, which some people feel is in the absolute center of the heart chakra, and which other people experience as a physical location in their physical hearts (to the left of that).

I asked the baby angel in my heart … the Baptismal sylph that is dwelling there … to find that spot and to sing from that spot the hymn. The feeling that I got when she did that, was that the resonance of the sound energy in the room shifted … not in a way that could be discerned with the human ear, but to do with the ultrahigh frequencies of sound that my angel was producing in the room.

This is about the singing in the church; it goes like this: When the sound was created in that way, it felt to me as if the sounds in the church all became one sound. In some way they all became united, or harmonic … harmonious … as if layers had been added between the voices of each person so skillfully that it became like one voice of a song that sang itself, rather than the song of many different people.

So my suggestion is to use this same technique in order to bring the learning of the Saturnians into the realm of the human heart.

Conclusion

I am trying to think what else they said … It was such a long session! … That is all I have for you right now.

You all take care. Love you lots.

FOOTNOTES

(1) The Saturnians might have been referring to the moon Titan, which is enormous. From this video, it looks to me like the orbit of Titan does cross the rings of Saturn …

Video: “Squeezing and Stretching Titan,” by Solar System Exploration at NASA Science, 28 June 2012 … https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/resources/10746/squeezing-and-stretching-titan/ … CREDIT: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Titan is only the biggest of 82 moons of Saturn: “The moons of Saturn are numerous and diverse, ranging from tiny moonlets only tens of meters across to enormous Titan, which is larger than the planet Mercury. Saturn has 82 moons with confirmed orbits that are not embedded in its rings … – of which only 13 have diameters greater than 50 kilometers – as well as dense rings that contain millions of embedded moonlets and innumerable smaller ring particles … Seven Saturnian moons are large enough to have collapsed into a relaxed, ellipsoidal shape, though only one or two of those, Titan and possibly Rhea, are currently in hydrostatic equilibrium. Particularly notable among Saturn’s moons are Titan, the second-largest moon in the Solar System (after Jupiter’s Ganymede), with a nitrogen-rich Earth-like atmosphere and a landscape featuring dry river networks and hydrocarbon lakes, … Enceladus, which emits jets of gas and dust from its south-polar region, … and Iapetus, with its contrasting black and white hemispheres.” –-from Link: “Moons of Saturn,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moons_of_Saturn ..

(2) “Data from the Cassini space probe indicate that the rings of Saturn possess their own atmosphere, independent of that of the planet itself. The atmosphere is composed of molecular oxygen gas (O2) produced when ultraviolet light from the Sun interacts with water ice in the rings. Chemical reactions between water molecule fragments and further ultraviolet stimulation create and eject, among other things, O2. According to models of this atmosphere, H2 is also present. The O2 and H2 atmospheres are so sparse that if the entire atmosphere were somehow condensed onto the rings, it would be about one atom thick … The rings also have a similarly sparse OH (hydroxide) atmosphere. Like the O2, this atmosphere is produced by the disintegration of water molecules, though in this case the disintegration is done by energetic ions that bombard water molecules ejected by Saturn’s moon Enceladus. This atmosphere, despite being extremely sparse, was detected from Earth by the Hubble Space Telescope.” –from Link: “Rings of Saturn,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rings_of_Saturn … Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License; ..

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 …

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

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.

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
