Coronavirus: Urgent Plea to U.S. Mayors and Governors to Establish Stores of Staples in Case of Shortage . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 March 2020; updated on 8 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I was in my local Walmart a few days ago and noticed they were short of staples such as rice and dry noodles, and out of bags of beans. I feel each family must buy what staples we can, as soon as we are able, given what is available in the stores. I feel we might wish to store up enough for 3-4 months for our family, in case stores run short of supplies.

Bottled water is also important to have on hand; second best would be water filters such as Brita or the like. I also suggest water disinfectant in whatever form can be purchased, in the unlikely case urban water supplies should be compromised.

I ask that United States mayors and governors purchase for their towns and states a supply of staples … grains such as wheat, corn, millet, oats, beans, and rice … and also powdered milk for mothers with young children … to provide in case of urgent need should a food shortage develop for the next three of four months.

Maybe our mayors and governors can obtain bulk staples through farmers’ cooperatives in their own states. if not there, it maybe that farmers’ cooperatives in the Midwestern United States will have available the needed staples (at granaries, for instance).

I wonder if Red Cross … phone 800-733-2767 … or the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust … phone 202-720-4221 … might offer foodstuffs for short-term food crises due to coronavirus here in America?

Link: “Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust,” by United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service … https://www.fas.usda.gov/programs/bill-emerson-humanitarian-trust … COMMENT: I note this Trust is in cash rather than commodities, and aimed at famine relief in non-United States countries.

If bulk staples can be obtained by government officials, that will help stave off famine in the communities they serve.

There is a possibility of lockdowns on public transportation as cities begin to experience the Coronavirus epidemic; this must be taken into consideration when planning for distribution of bulk staples to the underserved in our local communities. In other words, families who have no other means of picking up government foodstuffs than public transportation might be left to die at home.

I am sorry to be so specific in this regard, but I feel many people are unused to thinking in survival terms, and unable to visualize what may transpire if our mayors and governors are unable to provide for the needs of the underserved in case of famine.

As well, our local government staffs … the folks who would work on food distribution programs … might be depleted, and the government offices themselves might be shut down as the coronavirus passes through the various United States communities.

Thus I feel the time to act, with foresight, is now. That time is upon us.

Call to Action: Annual HIV or AIDS Tests for Women. by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 6 December 2019

Dear Ones,

Recently I looked over a very good study which states that lifetime risk of HIV infection in the United States is 1 in 68 for men and 1 in 253 for women …

Link: “Lifetime Risk of a Diagnosis of HIV Infection in the United States,” by Kristen L. Hess, PhD, MPH, Xiaohong Hu, MS, Amy Lansky, PhD, MPH, Jonathan Mermin, MD, and H. Irene Hall, PhD, MPH, HHS Public Access Author Manuscript, Ann. Epidemiol. published in final edited form as: Ann Epidemiol. 2017 April ; 27(4): 238-243, doi:10.1016/j.annepidem.2017.02.003 … https://stacks.cdc.gov/view/cdc/46891/cdc_46891_DS1.pdf?This is a pdf file.

What am I missing here? Is it not true that most men in the United States date women? Do one in three United States men never date women, but only distribute HIV infection amongst their subgroup?

It seems to me more likely that the lifetime risk of HIV infection amongst United States women is about the same as that for men, but that because the medical profession guidelines for subgroups at risk are faulty, women are not being tested for HIV infection concomitantly with their level of risk.

My suggestion is this: That the medical profession suggest to each patient … whether man, woman or child … that they be tested for HIV (or for AIDS, if they are already HIV-positive), as part of the annual wellness checkup.

Community Health Call to Action: HIV Testing and Segregation in Health Care and Education? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 4 December 2019 and published on 5 December 2019

  • CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS IN SENSITIVE HEALTH CARE SECTORS
  • CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE CHILD CARE, DAY CARE AND GRADE SCHOOL CARE GIVERS, EDUCATORS, AND CHILDREN

Dear Ones,

There is, I feel, an urgent need here in the San Fernando Valley, California,for testing and segregation of HIV-positive people in sensitive health care and education sectors  as follows …

CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS IN SENSITIVE HEALTH CARE SECTORS

In addition, at the present moment it is of great importance to monitor the HIV status of United States physicians, especially surgeons  and others who perform invasive procedures, and the HIV status of phlebotomists (medical technicians who draw blood).

We must decide, community by community, whether those in sensitive health care positions who test positive for HIV ought to be moved to less sensitive health care sectors; or whether they might be reserved for the use of HIV positive patients.

CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE CHILD CARE, DAY CARE AND GRADE SCHOOL CARE GIVERS, EDUCATORS, AND CHILDREN

I have read that HIV can be transmitted through mucus or blood or semen contact … as through kissing or diaper changing, or through dressing open wounds, or through sexual intercourse . Thus I feel that it is of equal importance, at the present moment, to monitor the HIV status of child care and day care providers and of grade school educators and also of children starting with newborns, and on up through puberty.

As above, we must decide, community by community, whether to restrict HIV-positive early childhood care givers and grade school educators to care or education of children who are HIV positive, and whether to separate children into HIV-positive and HIV-negative groups in child care, day care, and grade schools.

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

Call to Action: The Spectre of Social Unrest in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

At the level of the borderline poverty working family in Los Angeles today, there is a yearning for home ownership that is part and parcel of the American dream. Yet because of the high entry bar to home ownership, few blue collar working families can hope to achieve this dream.

This gives rise to hopelessness regarding the American way of life, for masses of people who feel that home ownership will be forever beyond their grasp. It is just such feelings of hopelessness that cause lack of faith in the American way of life, and can promulgate social unrest; even thoughts of revolution and of more even distribution of property through Communism.

Social unrest threatens those who own homes, those who have higher paying jobs, and those who offer employment here in Los Angeles. Thus it is in the best interests of those of us who have vested interests in this city, to offer hope to Los Angeles families who are economically less advantaged, whether they be renters of apartments or of rooms.

Here are two cost-effective ways to mitigate the spectre of social unrest in Los Angeles …

  • For borderline poverty working families who are renters, Los Angeles might offer apartment buildings with a ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ option. This option might be promoted through a State of California or local tax credit to apartment building owners.
  • In addition we could offer a Los Angeles or California monthly lottery prize of a home, so that the American dream of home ownership might be laid out and monthly publicized as a possibility, even for those who are as yet unable to obtain ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ housing.

I feel these two proposals, which are relatively inexpensive and might easily be embarked upon, would appeal to both the inchoate yearning and the realistic plans of Los Angeles families who hope for home ownership … and that they would do so in a manner both concrete and newsworthy.

It is the American dream of home ownership that keeps us strong as a people. No family among us that has the heart to work and to contribute to our community, ought suffer despondency in this regard. Let us raise high the standard of hope for a better tomorrow, for the sake of this great city we all … whether propertied or as yet renting … love and cherish.

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

Dear Ones,

Today I found out that the lifetime risk of HIV infection published by Truvada, and referred to in an earlier blog of mine, originated with a 2016 Centers for Disease Control study which is public domain. Here is the overall report …

CALL TO ACTION: RESEARCH QUESTIONS REGARDING THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA HIV STATISTIC

I note in particular the lifetime risk in the District of Columbia is 1 in 13 people. I have a question as to the cause. Here are my thoughts as to lines of inquiry …

  • As the District of Columbia is a high density urban area, could it be that other high density urban areas in the United States are also among the highest risk?
    • To answer this question, a researcher would have to pull out the relevant statistics for cities from those for rural areas, and see if there is a statistically significant difference between urban and rural areas.
    • Alternatively, we could look at increasing population density in each of the above states, and see if it correlates with increasing risk.
    • If the answer to this question turns out to be ‘yes’, then I ask that researchers look into whether the presence of an international airport or an international port of call in a city increases lifetime risk of infection.
  • Could it be that the District of Columbia has experienced the first of regional ‘HIV blooms’, bell curve increases, and that we might expect the same in other areas? If so, when?
    • To answer this question, we would need to see an annual graph on lifetime risk in the District of Columbia, optimally going back 10 years. If it were found, say, that a District of Columbia ‘bloom’ happened in the time interval from 2014-2016, a three-year time span, then that information would be very helpful in planning for education, prevention and treatment of HIV in other areas of the United States, for a three-year interval starting in 2019.
    • As the CDC data are three years old, and if there was a ‘bloom’ in the District of Columbia from 2014-2016, then we might posit that there has been a similar bloom elsewhere in the United States in the three-year interval from 2016-2019. That might provide a basis for extrapolating to the true current situation in the United States, with regard to the pandemic. My thought is that the current situation might be much more intense than is surmised, and that this discrepancy might be due to the staleness of the CDC statistics and the quick rise in prevalence instanced by the steep slope of the epidemic bell curve (about which I have written in past years).
  • Could it be that the District of Columbia high risk has to do with the presence of international visitors? If so, could this mean that AIDS lifetime risk in other countries has been underreported or underestimated?
    • Another way to assess international visitor risk would be to test all military personnel who have been on away missions.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS BY TRANSMISSION GROUP

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Transmission Group,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Transmission Group,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

This image is pretty standard, and I feel pretty misleading. For MSM (men having sex with men) the lifetime risk is 1 in 6. For women who inject drugs, 1 in 23. For men who inject drugs, 1 in 36. For heterosexual women, 1 in 241. and for heterosexual men, 1 in 473.

My concerns regarding this table are several. I wonder, for instance, whether the MSM category ought to be rephrased and reanalyzed in terms of men and women who are recipients of rectal sex, and this statistic compared to that for men who are donors of rectal sex.

Also significant would be the extent to which HIV screening varies for the various groups in the table. My thought on this is that we might find that men and women who inject drugs are more frequently tested for HIV concomitant with drug detox protocols instituted through emergency treatment of drug overdoses.

Then with regard to the big difference in the risk for heterosexual women and heterosexual men, how is it that the risk for heterosexual women is so very much greater than that for heterosexual men? Is it that women are more likely to test for HIV than men?

Could it be that a statistically significant portion of men described as heterosexual are bisexual, and are testing separately, under alias, as MSM, so as to avoid social stigma and preserve the appearance of a straight marriage? For such a segment of undeclared bisexual men married to straight women, they might be dosing their wives with HIV prophylactics without their knowledge, or alternatively, their wives may be infected and untreated, largely, I feel, because the CDC risk factors do not include married, straight women.

The question is, how large might a putative, undeclared bisexual and married male segment of the population be? If that were known, then we might better plan for diagnosis and treatment in the coming decade.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS BY RACE/ETHNICITY

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Race/Ethnicity,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

This is a well-known set of statistics. The highest racial-ethnic category with regard to lifetime risk of HIV diagnosis is African American men: 1 in 20. Next are African American women: 1 in 48. Possibly socioeconomic disadvantage may negatively influence prevention and medical care in this group?

Then Hispanic men: 1 in 48 … and Hispanic women, 1 in 227. Guessing that, because of the influence of Catholicism, many Hispanic men may be married to Hispanic women, and because of the Church’s stance on homosexuality as an ‘objective disorder’ may not be willing to admit homosexual liaisons to their wives. The wives of such men might be at risk and unaware of it, and so, not testing. They might pass on due to AIDS-related issues, without being treated for these issues.

Then for White men, the risk is 1 in 132; whereas, for White women the risk is 1 in 880. Either White women are extremely lucky, in regard to their lifetime HIV risk, or else they decline to test, for reasons of social status. If the latter turns out to be so, then I feel the turning point, for white women, will be when the pandemic reaches such proportions in the United States that it is clear their friends and neighbors have it, and so it will be socially acceptable to test for and treat HIV infection.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS AMONG MSM BY RACE/ETHNICITY

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis among MSM by Race/Ethnicity,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

From this table, the lifetime risk for men having sex with men (MSM) is 50% … 1 in 2 people, for African American MSM. For Hispanic, MSM the risk is half that … 25%, or 1 in 4. For White MSM, the risk is 9%, or 1 in 11.

FOUR SCENARIOS OF THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF EXPANDED HIV TESTING, TREATMENT AND PrEP IN THE UNITED STATES, 2015-2020

I like the below graph very much, as it shows how helpful testing and treatment would be in slowing the progress of the pandemic here in the United States. This slowing of the progress of the disease would, I feel, ease the effect of the pandemic on manpower, and on the U.S. economy. It would also make it easier to provide adequate education and medical care for HIV-infected patients. In terms of human suffering, as well, I feel that optimization of education, prevention, and treatment are of paramount importance.

As can be seen in the below graph, were this optimization to have occurred beginning in 2015, then in 2020 new infections would have been reduced from 265,330 to 80,270. That would have been a reduction of 70% … which is to say, a slowing of the rate of progress of the disease by 70%.

In future five-year intervals, we might expect the same statistic to apply. This, surely, is ample impetus for optimizing HIV education, prevention, and treatment as swiftly and thoroughly as possible.

Image: “Four Scenarios of the Potential Impact of Expanded HIV Testing, Treatment and PrEP in the United States, 2015-2020,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain … DESCRIPTION: This bar graph shows four scenarios of the potential impact of expanded HIV testing, treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) use in the United States from 2015 to 2020. The first bar shows that at current testing and treatment rates, there would be 265,330 new HIV infections in the U.S between 2015 and 2020.
The second bar shows that increasing the use of PrEP among high-risk populations (40 percent of men-who-have-sex-with-men; 10 percent of injecting drug users; and 10% of high-risk heterosexuals) could avert 48,221 new infections. This would mean that only 217,109 new HIV infections would occur in the U.S. from 2015 to 2020.
The third bar shows that increasing the number of people diagnosed with HIV who are on treatment to 85 percent, and ensuring that 60 percent achieve viral suppression would avert 88,908. Increasing PrEP use among high-risk populations at these higher treatment rates would avert an additional 31,988 new infections, reducing the total number of new HIV infections to 144,434.
The final bar shows that if we achieve the targets of the National HIV / AIDS Strategy (85 percent of people diagnosed are on treatment and 80 percent of those achieve viral suppression), we would avert 168,132 infections, with an additional 16,928 HIV infections prevented if PrEP was used as well, resulting in only 80,270 new HIV infections from 2015 to 2020.

Call to Action: Cybercrime Alert: Geotracking and Home Burglaries . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 15 February 2019

Dear Ones,

This is a Call to Action: I ask that the danger of criminal snooping on individuals’ geotracking, in its many iterations, whether …

  • through online mapping services, online hotel reservations, or online near instantaneous credit card transaction postings;
  • through electronics in modern cars; or
  • through GPS implants in transportable modern electronics

… to the end of home burglary while people are travelling, or with a view to threat to life and limb while travelling … be evaluated, and the results presented to the public.

I note what seems to loom as a critical danger of identity theft and potential location tracking in Microsoft’s centralization of customer identity and habit information, and ask that this danger by evaluated by cybercrime analysts. If there is a danger, what is its urgency; and how may it be mitigated?

In love, light and joy,

Call to Action: Calculate Cybercrime Drag on U.S. Economy . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 15 February 2019

Dear Ones,

This is a Call to Action: I ask that economists calculate the current cyber crime drag on the United States economy.

Also that they calculate the tipping point at which an internet presence for banks, stock brokerages, and online stores will become no longer economically feasible.

Has the tipping point already been reached? If not, can the date be extrapolated, and may financial institutions and online merchants be informed of this date, so that the move of financial matters away from the internet may be accomplished in an orderly way?

Telephone and fax offer alternatives to conversations currently taking place online. I gather that phone service may also have been cyber criminalized, and request research into resolving telephone privacy as well as cyber secure faxing, If these cannot be attained, then I suggest advising telephone service customers of this, so that an orderly move can be made back to paper correspondence and to the United States mail.

I note, for instance, the need that will arise for goods catalogs, such as the old Sears catalog, to replace Internet giants such as Amazon.com, and the need that will arise for greater stocks of inventory in local community stores.

I note the coming need of greater personnel in the United States Postal Service, to provide service for transactions formerly posted online.

I note the coming need for more paper production (hence more timber planting) to replace paperless online transactions.

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

Call to Action Regarding the Entertainment Industry . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 18 September 2018

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

This video offers a Call to Action regarding the entertainment industry, in both the international and the local arena. There is a Summary after the video.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

This is a Call to Action regarding the entertainment industry. As I understand it, international relations suffer because of the violent, overtly sexual, and recreational drug content of the movies that are exported from the United States. I speak specifically of the Islamic countries and of China, which have different ethics … more strict ethics … than the ethics exhibited by the movies that are exported.

I would like to ask for sanctions on exportation of those sorts of films to foreign countries, in the interests of international diplomatic relations with the world.

In addition, because the young people of the United States are being influenced by the entertainment industry towards these dark actions of violence, crime, promiscuity, and overuse of recreational drugs, I would like to request that United States localities … cities, counties, and state governments … consider taxation of films with this type of content, with the intention of earmarking the sums received for maintaining additional law enforcement personnel to take care of the violence that ensues, and for healthcare facilities to help people through rehabilitation after they become addicted to drugs.

So those two things I ask for …

  1. In the international arena, politics, governance in the United States, I am asking this of Washington DC itself: That sanctions be placed on exportation of films that may adversely influence our image as a country abroad.
  2. And the other, on the local level: A tax to deal with the increased cost incurred by our communities because of the nature of the films and movies put out by the entertainment industry.

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

Call to Action: Fabricas to Employ California Homeless . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 25 August 2018; published on 27 September 2018

  • ARE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY THRIFT STORE THROW-AWAYS BEING SENT TO MEXICO?
  • CALL TO ACTION: RETAIN CAST-OFF THRIFT STORE ITEMS IN LOS ANGELES, AND SET UP FABRICAS TO EMPLOY HOMELESS HERE, REPAIRING OR REPURPOSING THESE GOODS
  • REQUEST THAT CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE SEND DELEGATIONS TO AFRICA AND SOUTH AMERICA TO FIND OUT HOW THROW-AWAY ITEMS CAN CREATE AN INCOME STREAM FOR OUR HOMELESS
  • OFFER TAX INDUCEMENT FOR CALIFORNIA ENTREPRENEURS WITH FABRICAS IN MEXICO, TO EMPLOY NON-US-CITIZEN CALIFORNIA HOMELESS IN THEIR MEXICAN FABRICAS?

Hello, Dear Ones,

This is a call to action regarding fabricas to employ the San Fernando Valley homeless.

ARE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY THRIFT STORE THROW-AWAYS BEING SENT TO MEXICO?

I was just over at one of the big thrift store chains in the San Fernando Valley, and I noticed, in the donation area, this gigantic dumpster full of items that did not pass muster. And I had heard, years ago, that those items go to Mexico to be used in the fabricas (factories) over there.

I was just thinking that the situation has changed very dramatically, here in the San Fernando Valley, and that there are many homeless people here, who could be fruitfully employed in fabricas here, using those same cast-off materials, if there were a general manager here who had experience supervising people, and an understanding of how to resell those goods that were either repaired or transformed into other types of goods.

For instance, there are the clothes that are not quite good enough, that could be refashioned as many different kinds of items. And there are lots of appliances large and small, as well as furniture, that could be repaired if a person had the skill, and were working for a low enough wage (the minimum wage).

I know that, in Africa, colored paper … like glossy, colored paper from magazines … is sometimes refashioned as jewelry, and sold here in the United States as disposable jewelry. And I think that would be something else that the homeless here in Los Angeles could easily pick up.

CALL TO ACTION: RETAIN CAST-OFF THRIFT STORE ITEMS IN LOS ANGELES, AND SET UP FABRICAS TO EMPLOY HOMELESS HERE, REPAIRING OR REPURPOSING THESE GOODS

So here is my suggestion and my Call to Action: I think that, if there are items that, if there are items that are being shipped to Mexico for a nominal fee, for use in fabricas there, that we in Los Angeles ought to consider retaining them here in Los Angeles, to use in fabricas to employ the homeless.

I ask that this be looked at with all the major chains of thrift stores, here in the Los Angeles area. I think that many, many people could be employed in that way.

REQUEST THAT CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE SEND DELEGATIONS TO AFRICA AND SOUTH AMERICA TO FIND OUT HOW THROW-AWAY ITEMS CAN CREATE AN INCOME STREAM FOR OUR HOMELESS

I would like to request that the California Legislature send a small group of people to Africa and to South America to find out how items that we throw away … junk that we throw away … is used in those countries to create an income stream, and see whether any of those ideas might be of help in employing the homeless in Los Angeles, and in other parts of California.

OFFER TAX INDUCEMENT FOR CALIFORNIA ENTREPRENEURS WITH FABRICAS IN MEXICO, TO EMPLOY NON-US-CITIZEN CALIFORNIA HOMELESS IN THEIR MEXICAN FABRICAS?

Another thought would be: Since we are having so much trouble finding a good place to locate homeless people for a place to live, and a place to work, to arrange to take those goods to Mexico, and start a fabrica there, for the people who are homeless here in the United States, and whose nationality is Mexican. That would be a way of finding them work in their own country, and relieving ourselves of the burden of non-US-citizen homeless here.

A stop-gap measure that we might offer immediately is for American employers who have relocated their businesses to Mexico: We could offer them a tax inducement for employing California homeless people who are Mexican nationals in their own country.

I can see the potential for abuse in this, in that people might actually come to the United States, in order to get into those programs; so we would have to figure out how to skirt round that threat of abuse. (For instance, this might be a time-delimited tax inducement for Californian entrepreneurs with fabricas in Mexico. ) The good point is that this would be something that could be done immediately, so as to help mitigate the burden of homelessness here in California.

Call to Action for Governor Jerry Brown: Explain Social Security Number Tagging of HIV-Positive Californians . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 24 August 2018; published on 27 September 2018

Dear Ones,

This is a Call to Action for Governor Jerry Brown, of the State of California. I ask that an explanation be given for reporting the social security numbers of HIV-positive patients to Sacramento.

For instance: Not that we are planning to detain HIV-positive people in Walmart work camps or to eliminate them (as conspiracy theorists would have it), but rather that we just need to identify them definitively, so that their names are not counted twice in the health statistics.

Call for Medical Research: Deeper Sleep, Crib Death and Snoring . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 27 September 2018

Dear Ones,

In recent years, I have discarded my pillow at night, and started using a towel, folded in four, and then with the end of the four-folded towel folded twice over, under my neck, when I am sleeping on my back.

In the below image, the right-hand side of the towel is placed near the headboard, leaving the left-hand fold under the neck, and the four-folded towel under the back of the head …

Image: “Towel for under neck while sleeping on the back,” by Alice B. Clagett, 27 September 2018, CC BY-SA 4.0

The height of the folded towel needs to match the vertical distance from the bottom of the head to the neck. I find this prevents airway narrowing and helps deepen sleep.

Intuition tells me that this technique might help prevent snoring and infant crib death as well. I do not know if the scientific research is out there, as yet. It would be great to see the numbers crunched.

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

California Call to Action: HIV Transmission Rates and Other News Updates on HIV / AIDS . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 August 2018

  • CALL TO ACTION: CAN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE ART (ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY) TO HIV-POSITIVE SEX WORKERS WHO LACK HEALTH INSURANCE, SO AS TO PREVENT HIV TRANSMISSION?
  • CALIFORNIA LAW REGARDING INTENTIONAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV
  • MEDICAID AND MEDICARE WILL PAY FOR HIV TESTING AND TREATMENT
  • HIV TRANSMISSION RATES LOOK QUITE OPTIMISTIC PROVIDED HIV-POSITIVE PEOPLE USE ART

Dear Ones,

CALL TO ACTION: CAN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE ART (ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY) TO HIV-POSITIVE SEX WORKERS WHO LACK HEALTH INSURANCE, SO AS TO PREVENT HIV TRANSMISSION?

I have read some articles recently that state HIV transmission rates are quite low, especially if blood titer is low. As ART (antiretroviral therapy) keeps blood titer low, I suggest providing HIV-Positive Sex Workers with ART, even if they do not have health insurance, so as to prevent the transmission of HIV to their clients and their clients’ wives.

I ask that the State of California consider this proposal on an urgent basis.

CALIFORNIA LAW REGARDING INTENTIONAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV

I note that California has lowered the penalty for intentional transmission of HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor as of 2018 …

Link: “California lowers penalty for knowingly exposing partners to HIV,” by Alaa Elassar and Laura Diaz-Zuniga, CNN, updated 10 October 2017 … https://www.cnn.com/2017/10/07/health/california-hiv-bill-signed/index.html ..

MEDICAID AND MEDICARE WILL PAY FOR HIV TESTING AND TREATMENT

I see also that Medicaid and Medicare are covering the cost of annual HIV tests and treatment now …

Link: “HIV Screening,” at Medicare.gov … https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/hiv-screening.html ..

Link: “Medicaid Coverage of HIV Testing,” in KFF: Henry J Kaiser Family Foundation …  https://www.kff.org/hivaids/state-indicator/hiv-testing/?currentTimeframe=0&sortModel=%7B%22colId%22:%22Location%22,%22sort%22:%22asc%22%7D ..

Link: “Paying for HIV Care and Treatment,” at HIV.gov … https://www.hiv.gov/hiv-basics/staying-in-hiv-care/hiv-treatment/paying-for-hiv-care-and-treatment ..

… and that the Affordable Care Act has broadened cost protection for treatment of HIV and AIDS …

Link: “The Affordable Care Act and HIV / AIDS,” in HIV.gov … https://www.hiv.gov/federal-response/policies-issues/the-affordable-care-act-and-hiv-aids ..

HIV TRANSMISSION RATES LOOK QUITE OPTIMISTIC PROVIDED HIV-POSITIVE PEOPLE USE ART

Data on HIV transmission rates are looking quite optimistic. This article in HealthLine, for instance …

Link: “Exploring HIV Transmission Rates,” in HealthLine … https://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/hiv-transmission-rates ..

… states that receptive rectal intercourse with a partner results in AIDS transmission in 138 out of 10,000 sex acts

… Receptive penile-vaginal sex has a transmission rate of 8 in 10,000 sex acts, and

— Insertive penile-vaginal sex has a transmission risk of 4 in 10,000 sex acts

And this article …

Link: “9 Myths about HIV / AIDS,” from HealthLine … https://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/misconceptions-about-hiv-aids#3 ..

… states that HIV-positive women who would like to have children have a risk as low as 1% of transmitting HIV to their fetus, provided they have been on ART for a while.

… and also that HIV-positive men who are on ART and whose viral load is undetectable have nearly zero risk of transmitting HIV to offspring in the act of conception.

This article …

Link: “Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV,” in HIV.gov, 24 May 2018 … https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/understanding-hiv-aids/fact-sheets/20/50/preventing-mother-to-child-transmission-of-hiv ..

… states that the rate of transmission of HIV from a mother to her child are as low as 2%, provided the mom takes ART while pregnant and while giving birth, and provided the newborn has a course of newborn ART for 4-6 weeks after birth.

As the outlook regarding HIV transmission rates keeps evolving as new data are analyzed, I feel it is important to check on new research results from time to time.

Call to Action: Child Trafficking in the San Fernando Valley? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 8 July 2018

Dear Ones,

This is a Call to Action for the San Fernando Valley. I know I have taken a long time to talk with you all about this; every time I have thought of talking about it, the Dark has been doing that Mind Slide thing, and forget about it. When that happens, and I notice it, it is a ‘heads up’ for me that something that needs saying is in the works.

Finally I remembered it today. It is a Sunday; it is a blessed day, and there is a lot of good energy on Sundays, in the San Fernando Valley. So here it is …

A few weeks ago … I think it was Monday, 18 June 2018 at about 4 pm … I was in a parking lot near a children’s store … one of those chain stores like “Toys Are Us,” but it was a baby chain store that was about to close its doors. It was sandwiched between an Office Depot and a See’s Candy store in one of the smaller shopping centers on Topanga Canyon Blvd in the San Fernando Valley.

And I saw a child about 5 years old, a boy, who had a special light about him; one of the saintly children that are sent to Earth to help humankind. And this very beautiful young boy was with his mother.

Immediately I saw him, and thought how wonderful it was that we had another Lightworker in the San Fernando Valley, the Dark came swooping in, and said that it would be there, any minute, for ‘pick-up’.

Typically, I used to … in the old days … say: Well, this will never happen. But I was at a concert a year or two ago … not in Los Angeles, but elsewhere … where a similar thing happened: There was a 4-year-old girl wandering around in the outdoor concert area. And she had a beautiful, Lightworker light about her. And I had a feeling, then, that the Dark would attack her at night, when her parents were watching the concert and she was wandering around.

And I did not do anything about that. And always, after that, I regretted it; I had a feeling that some terrible thing may have befallen her.

So this time, it happened again, and I said to myself: I won’t let this happen. I’ll just go stand guard, and see whether I can prevent some catastrophe from happening. And then again, maybe I am completely wrong … so then, no harm done! Right? A few minutes lost.

So I noticed that the child and his mother were going into this chain baby store. There was an entryway area … kind of a hallway, entryway, horizontal area from one left door to one right door, in that building. And beyond that, was the parking lot. On the other side of the entryway hallway, was the area where the toys were on sale, inside the building.

So I went and stood in the entryway hallway, so that I could watch both exits and entrances, to see what might happen, right? I was just wondering: Could this presentiment be right, or not?

I was standing in the entrance way, and normal people were walking in and out … parents with children … the parents a little weighed down by the care of taking care of their children, you know? Wanting to be good parents, and to have enough money to sustain their household … Those kinds of normal cares, right? So that was fine.

Then walked in the door a woman. She was in her late twenties or early thirties, and she had milk-white skin, and she was very, very beautiful … very pale, and very beautiful … and she was wearing that basic, black dress. It was the kind that had a waist that showed her figure, and it came down as far as her knees. And she was wearing flat dress shoes.

A strikingly beautiful, and well poised woman, but not wearing much makeup at all. And very clearly, not a parent. You know? She walked in and started schmoozing and talking up … ‘flirting up’ … one of the cashiers. There were two cashiers, both male. And they had been keeping an eye on the comings and goings of the grown-ups and the children.

So she came in and grabbed the attention of one of the cashiers. So I was watching her, and I was also watching for the child to come back out, unhindered, right? I had a bad feeling about her … Maybe she was a salesperson that came in to the cashier about a line of product. But, it seems to me unlikely, because cashiers are generally not owners.

It was an unusual occurrence … The ‘wrong’ kind of person had walked into the store. It was just weird; parents of young children don’t look like that, as they walk in and out, typically. They look a little harassed; they’re wearing their casual clothes, and so forth.

So she kept talking. So there was she, standing right by the cashiers … which I could see, because the entrance corridor was made of glass on the side by the store. And there was also glass, looking outside, and glass on the doors. So it was a good vantage point for me.

Shortly after she walked in, a man walked in. He was taller than she by about a foot; about her age; and I would say, well proportioned. Like her, he was a Caucasian, but unlike her, he was dressed casually and unobtrusively, in loose-fitting slacks and a casual, solid color shirt.

And he was very reserved. He was doing that thing, you know, where you fit in with everyone, and you say just the right things, and you do the expectable thing. And not the thing that is deep in your mind, but the thing that the other person expects you to do. You know? Two-faced … but not apparently so. Very good at dissimulating.

And so he came in, and from appearances it would seem that he did not know the woman, right? The woman in black. But he stood near her, looking uninterested, right? He stood near her, by the cashiers. He was just standing there.

Now this scenario continued for some time. And I kept watching … anxiously watching the children going in and out … because I did not know how many players were involved in the thing, or whether a performance was taking place, right?

It seemed like a long time went by, but most likely it was only 10 or 15 minutes. Finally, I spotted the child and his mother coming out of the door opposite me. They went out with a couple of other people, so it was kind of complicated … There was like a ‘glom’ of people at the door … one or two other people, the child, and his mother, all leaving through the door at about the same time. The child was very active … he was a very alert and active child.

Just as they went through the door, in that gaggle, the woman in black came sliding through the midst of them. And the feeling that I got was her mind, her thoughts, were ‘hooking into’ the child. But just at that moment  the mother reached her hand backwards towards the child, and bade him come to the right.

Then the woman went out, slightly to the left, and straight ahead, into the parking lot. So I went and looked. And the man was not there, at that time. He was not one of those people.

So I went and looked what was going on. I saw the mother and her child join two other people (not the people that had been in the doorway, I’m felt) in a car. I assumed that was ok.

And I saw the woman in black get into a white sports car … looked like a brand new car, and make off.  The car was long and low. The hood of the car was very unusual … flat and wedge-shaped, set at an angle that went from the windshield almost down to the ground, with two rows of about 5 slits.  set at opposing diagonals along the hood, so that it the car seemed to me cruel and swift, probably custom, and probably very expensive.

I am sorry to say I have been unable to find a photo of a similar car online. This photo is the closest in ‘feel’ to the car that I saw, that I can find …

Image: Ferrari 458 MM Speciale, https://amp.businessinsider.com/images/575030809105841c008c63e4-960-480.jpg ..

Then, on the psychic plane, I heard this: I heard that there is a witch’s coven near that place, and that they were located there on purpose, to snatch children from that place for the child trafficking trade. Whether there is any truth in this, or not, I do not know.

But I do feel that our community should be on the alert for their children in those kinds of stores. I feel that with definite certainty: Watch out for your children.

Try and find out from local law enforcement, whether children are missing, in the age range of about 4 years to 9 years old. It is possible, although I hope it is not true, that children in that are range are being trafficked for the sex trade and for porn movies. And maybe for snuff movies. So I suggest: Be very careful.

I feel certain law enforcement, were they to hear this story, would say:  So what? Nothing happened. And of course I understand their point of view, since I am sure they have their hands full, dealing with the nitty gritty.

But from my own point of view, something did happen: It was like a play within a play, or a scenario taking place, that had a feel to it, of a well rehearsed game plan. So, I feel: 50-50, might be true. Better be careful.

All right, parents, take care! And take good care of your children, who are the blessing of the future of Earth. God bless you all.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on black magic covens. I filmed it so that people who are, all unawares, members of the extended groups whose secret core is black magicians, may exercise discernment and right judgment in their group affiliations. There is an edited Summary after the video.

This video may have to do with Witchy Woman, Castratrux – Basal Vampire, and others; Dank, Femme Fatale-Dominatrix, and others; or the Maldekian and others. It seemed to me in 2015 and 2016 that there were gloms of cells of six on the psychic plane. Then in 2016-2018, a cell of 15, to do with the Pomeranian and others, appeared on the astral plane.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

The Hidden Black Magic Coven: Cells of Six

Summer Solstice 2018 is almost upon us. The Light is magnificent, even in Los Angeles. And I have a story to explain about a form of Black Magic that is being practiced, today, in the world, where six Black Magicians or Sorcerers … could be all in the same group, most likely … might be alliances amongst groups, if the going gets tough …  form a Hidden Black Magic Coven … six people.

Could be, for instance, three men and three women. Before the world, they appear to be very respectable people; often, very accomplished spiritual people, I think. Or they could have some other calling that is well respected.

These are very powerful Sorcerers; but, they need a front organization that will take the fall, in case the issue of Black Magic is uncovered by other people … and the damage that is being done to people, surreptitiously, through psychic crime comes to Light.

The Overt Black Magic Group: Mind Controlled ‘Fall Guys’ and ‘Patsies’

So they form another group … the Overt Black Magic Group … that could be six people or more; and which meet, say once a month, say, on the full moon … I am not too ‘up’ on Black Magic get-togethers.

These are people to whom they promise to teach Black Magic … and techniques that will make them powerful … but to whom they only teach a tiny bit of Black Magic; enough to get them to believe that they are on the road to being very powerful Sorcerers.

And these people they mind control into doing the Satanic acts for which they themselves do not want to get caught.

Black Magic Roundup: Inner Circle versus Outer Circle

The essence of the situation, bare bones, is …

  • You have a secret Sorcerer’s group … maybe six people … maybe three men and three women;
  • And in front of that, before the public eye, is the Overt Black Magic Group, the Satanic cult that will take the fall for any psychic crimes conceived of by the secret, Hidden Black Magic Group

Call to Action, Summer Solstice 2018: Lightworker Assemblies to Balance Light and Dark During This Great Age of Light

To counter this, I believe, what we need is a group of people … Lightworkers … I would think twelve would be good … to counter each of these groups. Light against Dark.

We need an inner core of six very dedicated Lightworkers, and it would be good if there were people who are learning from them how to help balance and maintain Light in the world. These people might constitute the additional number needed to get up to twelve. That is my thought on it.

Few people in the world today have thought about the need for Light to balance Dark. And so, coming into the Great Age of Light, that is what is going to be happening, I feel. People will begin to sense the need for Lightworker assemblies that will help counter the Darkness here on Earth, and bring it back into equilibrium and balance and harmony.

Now is the time, here at Summer Solstice 2018. We can extend our hands to other Lightworkers, in open and warm greeting, and help to co-create the unity and harmony of New Life on New Earth.

Sorcerers Deal in Power and Hatred

Now you may be wondering: How would you know the difference between a Sorcerer’s group, and a Lightworker’s group? You may be asking this from the outside, looking in. I will tell you one hallmark of a Sorcerer’s group: Sorcerers deal in Power. They are always trying to get one up, one on the other; and to take down each other. As soon as a Sorcerer begins to feel a little bit weak, another Sorcerer will try to end his life.

There is a lot of turnover in the Sorcerer realm. People are always trying to kill people. People are always warring against other people. There are a lot of schisms and factions. And in general, there is bad faith amongst people.

It is not unusual to find an inner circle of Black Magic people preying upon the laity (that is, preying upon those who are not strong in Sorcery) in their congregation … maybe even arranging for psychic murder, so that they can scoop up the wealth of those people, and keep it for themselves. And preying upon people in the extended group … in the greater group … through stimulation of the feral drives; in other words, by increasing the Soul wounding of their own congregations, so that they may profit by it, in some way.

Lightworkers Feel Love and Envision Abundance for All

Lightworkers, on the other hand, are the exact opposite. They are always supporting each other, and promoting each other. And feeling love for each other. And helping each other grow in grace and wisdom and abundance.

How to Distinguish a Sorcerer’s Group from a Lightworker’s Group

Here is how you can tell the difference between a Sorcerer’s group, which brings in the Dark; and a Lightworker’s group, who bring in the Light: Lightworkers altogether cherish humankind. Sorcerers do the exact opposite; they are what you might call a ‘Psychic Hate Group’. I would not say they are ‘skinheads’, but rather a Psychic Hate Group. The thing of it is: A sorcerer, in the marrow of his bones, hates everyone. He revels in destruction, and death, and chaos. That is what Sorcerers do.

In the old days … long, long ago … the tradition of Sorcery was different from that. Sorcerers would align with a kingdom, and help the kingdom to survive through the tough times. There were a lot of wars on Earth, and Sorcerers did that.

But these days, Sorcery has degenerated to a very warring-within state; no doubt, because the Incoming Light is creating a sense of upset. The notion that there is not very much Dark left, has to be consternating to a Black Magic group.

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

Wizards versus Sorcerers

Note that I use the word ‘Wizard‘ to mean a person versed in White Magic. The word ‘Sorcerer‘ has a general meaning as a person versed in Magic, both White Magic and Black Magic. But as a handy way of distinguishing the one practice from the other, I use the word ‘Sorcerer’ to mean a person versed in Black Magic.

Call to Action: Is AIDS Connected to Tuberculosis? . by Soul Guidance . referral by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 20 December 2017; revised on 2 March 2019

Dear Ones,

I found this link, about AIDS and tuberculosis, very interesting …

Link: “AIDS and Tuberculosis,” by Soul Guidance … http://www.soul-guidance.com/health/aids.htm ..

Could it be that AIDS is connected to the presence of the tuberculosis bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis and the penile ulceration bacterium Mycobacterium avium rather than retrovirus HTLV-3? If so, might there be a more effective form of treatment … one currently being used against the tuberculosis bacterium and the penile ulceration bacterium?

Would anyone be willing to do the research on this?

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

Call to Action: Public Coin-Operated Showers for the San Fernando Valley . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 13 December 2017
Previously titled: Public Coin-Operated Showers for the San Fernando Valley

Dear Ones,

I would like to suggest to laundromat owners and maybe gas station owners in the San Fernando Valley that they consider adding a few public coin-operated showers to their facilities. This would provide a new income base for these ongoing businesses.

Coin-operated showers are being successfully operated as part of a laundromat in Durango, Colorado, for instance. There, I feel they serve the large population of housed people who live on the dirt roads in rural areas, and have no public water system to their property.

Here in the San Fernando Valley, coin-operated showers would serve the large homeless population.

An alternative would be free-standing toilet facilities with public coin-operated showers, similar to those found in parks and recreation areas in California and Colorado.

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

Dear Ones,

HOMELESS STATISTICS IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

I read there were about 7,600 homeless in the San Fernando Valley, and 58,000 in LA County as of last year … I read this in:

Link: “Homelessness Increased In Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley: The rising cost of housing, along with a housing shortage, was acknowledged by officials as a top cause of the homeless problem,” by Alexander Nguyen (Patch Staff) – updated  https://patch.com/california/woodlandhills/homelessness-increased-woodland-hills-san-fernando-valley ..

SCARCITY OF HOMELESS SHELTERS IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Because of the influx of homeless into the nearby neighborhoods, I’ve been looking around for homeless shelters in the San Fernando Valley … It seems like shelters for men are scarce. It looks like housing will be built, but maybe is not available yet?

Law enforcement can ask a homeless person to move on, but where will they move to, if no housing resources are available?

ON THE NOTION OF ASSIGNING A PARKING LOT … SUCH AS THE VACANT COSTCO PARKING LOT ON ROSCOE … FOR A TEMPORARY TENT COMMUNITY

I had a thought about the Costco that closed at 21300 Roscoe Blvd in Canoga Park (across from the Salvation Army Store) … it has a big, fenced parking lot which might temporarily be used for tents, if porta-potties and security could be arranged … What do you all think about this possibility?

SMALL POD HOUSING DESIGNED BY VALLEY RESCUE MISSION

Also a possibility, in lieu of or in addition to tenting in a parking lot, might be small pod housing such as that designed by Valley Rescue Mission …

Link: “Local News: These small pods could bring a big solution for LA County’s homeless crisis,” by Susan Abram, sabram@scng.com , Daily News, published: 

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH AND FOOT TRAFFIC ON OUR PUBLIC STREETS

This is a very difficult topic. For myself, as a Neighborhood Watch captain, I want to help my neighbors keep my neighborhood safe, and at the same time not to trespass on other people’s freedom of movement. People walk up and down our public streets all day long, and that’s fine. It’s when they stop and stay around that residents get uneasy.

LOITERING LAWS IN LOS ANGELES

In response to that, there are loitering laws in LA, both in general and also at schools and places where children generally congregate, but I’ve read that they only apply if a person has criminal intent. Most likely a prior criminal record would figure in.

I’ve read there is also a law against walking onto private property and peeking into the door or window, and that law applies if the property is not abandoned. See:

Link: “PC 647: Loitering” … http://esfandilawfirm.com/crimes/loitering-pc-647/ ..

CAN WE PROVIDE SAFE PLACES FOR THE HOMELESS TO STORE THEIR PROPERTY?

I’ve also read that the City of LA passed law 56.11 last year to the effect that a (presumably homeless) person’s storage of items on sidewalks and parkways and in alleys must be no more than what can fit into the garbage bin … see:

Link: “L.A. council OKs law limiting homeless people’s belongings to what can fit in a trash bin,” by Gale Holland, Contact Reporter, 30 March 2016, 3:42 pm … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-belongings-20160331-story.html ..

I also read that the City has no right to put these belongings into the trash:

Link: “Judge Says Los Angeles Has to Stop Taking Homeless People’s Stuff: A new injunction limits the city’s ability to seize and destroy the property of Skid Row residents,” by Elijah Chiland, 14 April 2016, 9:55 am PDT … https://la.curbed.com/2016/4/14/11428886/los-angeles-homeless-property-seizure ..

The same article suggests the need … I would say citywide … for storage facilities for possessions of transient people.

ON WORKING WITHIN THE LAW FOR A SOLUTION TO THE DIFFICULT PROBLEM OF HOMELESSNESS

I guess what I’m trying to say is, as responsible citizens, and taking this difficult problem into consideration, let us work within the spirit of the legal system. As forward-looking people let us look to fresh solutions to the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles.

  • What is really going on, economically, here?
  • How can we tweak the economy to provide jobs for those who want them, but can’t find them?
  • As a concerned community with humane intent, what may we also do for those who don’t want work, or who, for a constellation of reasons, are unemployable?

In the end, I am hoping that these last prove to be few, and that good work and good housing will be found for most.

MY THANKS TO CALIFORNIA FOR ITS POSITIVE REGARD FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED

I would like to add that I have traveled here and there in America in recent years, and have found, in general, that California’s attitude toward the underprivileged is a standout in many ways; especially, as regards …

  • positive social action,
  • lack of prejudice, and a positive attitude toward diversity, and
  • desire to abide within the spirit of the law.

For that depth of human kindness, and for our mutual vision of a new tomorrow in this beautiful land, I thank each of you, from the bottom of my heart.

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

  • FOR MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

What can strengthen the semipermeable membrane in the brain (the blood-brain barrier) to prevent microorganisms from entering the brain and aggravating (or possibly causing) Alzheimer’s and AIDS?

It has been a while since I filmed this video, and while I have looked through my references, some of which are listed below, I am pretty sure this video came more or less ‘out of the blue’. I have no idea what the probability any of it can be supported in fact may be. Would anyone be willing to research this?

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I was doing some reading last night on biophotonic communication amongst paramecia, and amongst various vegetative cells, and how it influences the growth and reproduction of cells. I came upon some interesting, similar thoughts.

Might Anti-Microbial pH Support the Function of the Semipermeable Membrane of the Brain?

The thoughts had to do with the semipermeable membrane of the brain, that theoretically keeps microorganisms out of the brain; and which may be damaged in diseases such as AIDS and Alzheimers … two very different diseases.

They have come up with some brain samples that indicate microorganisms such as bacteria or yeasts might get into the brain and cause these diseases because the semipermeable membrane barrier is damaged through AIDS and Alzheimer’s.

My thought is that it may be that these microorganisms could be controlled through the appropriate pH that is in the blood and in the body … by making the body’s pH less supportive of bacteria and yeast life in the body.

My suggestion for further cures that might be implemented for both Alzheimer’s and AIDS, is to look into the pH in the physical body that would be hostile to, or that would limit the reproductive cycles, or the flourishing of the life of microorganisms that inhabit, say, the gut, so that they would not wreak this kind of damage on the brain.

Along these lines, this article supports the notion that decreasing acidosis might improve the immune response …

Link: “Science review: Extracellular acidosis and the immune response: clinical and physiologic implications,” by John A Kellum, Mingchen Song, and Jinyou Li in Critical Care, 2004; 8(5): 331–336. Published online 2004 Jun 16. doi: 10.1186/cc2900 PMCID: PMC1065014 … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1065014/ ..

Might Mineral Supplements Be Helpful in Maintaining Optimum Function of the Blood-Brain Barrier?

Then we need to look into the semipermeable membrane of the brain. And my feeling about that is that there is a mineral balance that needs to be maintained. And so, I would look at the type of mineral supplements that would enhance the performance of the semipermeable membrane of the brain.

[I have no idea where this idea came from. –Alice]

Probiotics May Be Helpful

I have two other notions here: One to do with using probiotics, which may turn the endomicrobial tide toward gut microbes that are promote human health and do not contribute to disease. For instance, I read in this article that probiotics may improve antibody and white blood cell response …

Link: “Probiotic Use in HIV,” by IPA Admin, 20 June From The Gut … http://internationalprobiotics.org/probiotic-use-in-hiv/ ..

Adding Some Mucus-Forming Foods to the Diet May Be Helpful

In addition, adding a moderate amount of mucus-forming foods to the diet may help support the protective mucus lining the intestine, whose purpose is to prevent entry of microorganisms into the lymph and bloodstream, as well as to lubricate feces so as to help with elimination.

Along similar lines, I read in the above article that probiotics may improve the integrity of the mucosal wall.

Adding Onions and Garlic to the Diet May Be Helpful

Onions, garlic and ginger have been used in India for many long ages to improve vigor and bolster the immune system.

I note that both onions and garlic contain allicin, which may be helpful in strengthening the immune response and fighting microorganisms. Scientific tests on this are, as yet, inconclusive, though. See Link: “Allicin,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allicin ..

Fatal Brain-Eating Amoebae from Freshwater Lakes Affect Few of the People with Whom They Come in Contact

I was reading an article on the brain-eating amoeba Naegleria fowleri that is found in fresh-water lakes. Once this infection starts in the brain, it seems it is invariably fatal …

Link: “Brain-Eating Amoeba Infections: Causes & Symptoms,” by Alina Bradford, Live Science Contributor, 12 July 2016 07:12pm ET … https://www.livescience.com/55383-brain-eating-amoeba.html ..

What makes the cut? What is it that prevents Naegleria fowleri infection of the brain for many people?

Alzheimer’s and Diet

Why are so many elderly people getting Alzheimer’s today? Is this a question of diet, of pH as suggested in the video? Here is an article that supports this point of view …

Link: “Countries with the Lowest Dementia Rates Follow These 7 Food Secrets,” in Awakening from Alzheimers,” from “The Mindspan Diet” by Preston W. Estep, Ph.D. … http://www.awakeningfromalzheimers.com/countries-with-the-lowest-dementia-rates-follow-these-7-food-secrets/

The comments at the end of the article regarding the health efficacy of curries, and the importance of limiting pickled foods, are also of interest.

Might Dietary Changes Be Helpful for AIDS and Naegleria Fowleri as Well?

Could it be that pH also influences the outcome for HIV changing to AIDS, and for Naegleria fowleri infection, or lack thereof?

In addition, as mentioned above, allicin-containing foods, and a moderate amount of mucus-forming foods would be worth considering, I feel.

A Further Thought Regarding AIDS Mitigation

Does unprotected, frequent intercourse with HIV-positive partner(s) increase the HIV viral load? If so, does this then increase the likelihood of progression to AIDS?

If this were to be shown to be true, then it would follow that the HIV viral load might be mitigated, when one’s partner or partners are HIV-positive, by having less frequent sexual intercourse, and by having only protected sexual intercourse, and these guidelines might be set forth through CDC and WHO.

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

Dear Ones,

At the end of this blog is a video about how, as our empathic skills increase, we interact with other people’s thought forms about sexual desire. I put an edited Summary before the video, as the Summary is more complete.  If your time is limited, I suggest reading the Summary rather than viewing the video.

SUMMARY OF VIDEO

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

I thought I would explain a little about the second chakra and empathy, and the rise and fall of the waves of sexual desire all over the world. We have touched on this topic many times. This is just a further insight about it, with regard to empaths.

The Hyper-Reactivity of the Second Chakra

Of all the ‘old-style’ chakras … the seven chakras that used to be in human form before the 2012 Shift … I feel that which is most reactive to the unconscious thought cloud of the world is the second chakra … the sexual chakra.

The minute a person begins to feel sexual, to that chakra are attracted, from other people, many thought forms laden with desire. These thought forms … that are so strong, and so over-weight amongst the thought forms that rain down upon the other chakras of the chakra system … have to do with the mass media that I have also discussed many times, and the emphasis, in the mass media, on the second chakra ,,, including billboards, television, magazines, movies, and video games, to name a few. 

Empathy as a Trait of Lightworkers, Healers, and Spiritual Counselors

I feel that all Lightworkers are empaths, and that many people in the healing professions and the spiritual counseling professions are empaths, For instance, I feel that members of the medical professions and psychological and psychiatric professions are frequently empaths. These people have a tendency to sense the chakric patterning of the people they are with, whether it be one person that is with them in the physical sense, or a whole group of people.

Empaths as Reflectors of Other People’s Chakric Patterning

If empaths are with people with very robust endocrine systems … as is typically the case with the endocrine system of younger people … then the empaths tend to reflect the same pattern in their chakric system as they are experiencing from that other person or those other people in a group.

Social Censure by Others of Their Own Sexual Taboos as Reflected in the Empath’s Energy Field

So what happens, then … because in much of the world, there are many taboos around the act of sex and thoughts of sex … when the other person hears the clair chatter that has been transferred from them to the empath, they tend to react with the same social censure messages or malware messages that they heard from their parents when they were very young, before they reached the age of reason.

Boomerang Effect of Negative Thought Forms, from the Sender to Empath and Back Again

So when this negative malware impacts the mimic patterning of the empath, then it ratchets that energy, in a negative sense, back to the sender. And then, if the empath does not transform or transmute that energy with love, then the racket grows and grows. It grows into a kind of a maelstrom of negative sexual energy …

No, don’t do that!
No, don’t do that!

No, don’t think that!
Who are YOU?

And then a bunch of pejoratives, negative derogatory terms, begin to be slung back and forth about alternate lifestyles.

………………..
Sidebar: The Allure of Physical Form

Image: Portrait of young woman by Brazilian painter Harding Meyer, showing sexual allure as a flowing forth of light from one side of the face … http://www.themechanism.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/hardingmeyer2-520×379.jpg … COMMENT: The allure of physical form is different from sexual chakra malware, which is located in the lower quadrant of the body of light, and in the lower etheric net of a human being.
………………..

Example: Boomerang of Social Taboos between a Female Empath and a Young Woman

Here is a good example: Say a female Lightworker empath is around a young woman who has a strong sex drive. And that young woman feels a very strong feeling of sexual urge, accompanied by the usual thought forms for a heterosexual person. The Lightworker who is, say, female, such as myself, patterns that, and then the young woman throws back (on the clair plane) …

How dare you!
How dare you have that feeling towards me!

… which is a big embarrassment for the Lightworker or the empath, who also has thoughts about the social aptness of various thoughts. So she might react with …

  • No, I didn’t! 
  • or with How dare you!
  • or with transmuting with love and Light.

Clair Din Ratchets Up Unless Transmuted with Love and Light

Those are some of the options. And so, if the last option is not picked, then the clair din starts to ratchet up. In an establishment, everybody in the establishment suddenly gets involved in clair discussion (often on a plane of consciousness borderline between the conscious and the subconscious mind … the ‘reverie’ state of mind … about the social issue of alternate lifestyles, and so forth. If it is a Lightworker or empath that is a man, the same thing might happen.

For more on the reverie state see … Link: “OM Mantra and 7 Levels of Consciousness,” by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati … https://swamij.com/om.htm#unmani … Search the word: reverie

Empathic Sexual Chakric Mimicry Is Not Gender-Specific

Image: Painting of young girl underwater … https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/21/f2/1c/21f21c89c4b35b2d37ce866b2c7edf8d.jpg … COMMENT: This painting is reminiscent of a healer consciously submerging in the unconscious thought cloud of the world, as a neutral observer.

The patterning that happens on the sexual chakra, for an empath, is not sexually specific. It merely reflects the malware, or automatic response mechanisms, deeply buried in the subconscious mind … the repressed energies of the person that they are with. Whether they are with a man or a woman, it will still reflect whatever that other person has in terms of sexual malware. Of course, the empath’s response might vary, depending on the gender of the other person.

Loud Clair Sexual Melee in a Group

In a large group or crowd, it is like a melee. One person will have a sexual feeling. And then the Lightworker or empath notices that, plus all the energies of the other people in the room regarding that and all the other chakras.

The sexual chakra is a very loud chakra because of the compressedness of energies that have been repressed because of early childhood learning. Very loud. One of the first things that people experience when they start to awaken is all the nay-saying regarding sexuality in the world.

Example: The Man with the Wandering Eye

So everybody in the room starts to hear, after a while, a din about sexuality. And it varies very much. Some men are saying their familiar line, such as …

Could I have a date with you, dear woman?
Or it might be a very explicit statement instead.

They repeat this over and over again on the clair plane, whenever the sexual vibe in a room arises … without actually knowing that they are doing it. But the partner that they are sitting with notices it, and thinks that they are ‘coming on’ to someone else in the room … perhaps the new person: the Lightworker, the empath … and so that partner starts up very indignantly about how their man is being pre-empted by somebody that is an outsider to the group. And the Lightworker thinks …

Oh my goodness, what should I do?
What could I do about this?

Then somebody else picks up on the clair plane … somebody that has an interest in an alternate lifestyle. They have a different song to sing, and a different energy to add to the group. And it continues on. It can go all around a group, in different directions. Or it can rise into an uproar.

Example: Stories by Alice: Couple Leading a Music Celebration; Jealousy or Insecurity Felt by the Wife

I know of one gathering that I attended from time to time, where a man and his wife led a music celebration once a month. It could be that the wife had Soul wounding to do with another woman having stolen her sweetheart. Most likely, in adolescence, she had a sister who took her boyfriend away from her and scotched her on that. And she never forgave her. It was, maybe, first love; here was her sister ruining her life, and this was something that sank deep down into her subconscious mind … I do not know that that is so, but this type of childhood wounding would explain that behavior I encountered during one of the music celebrations, where the wife’s Soul wounding may have been rising to her conscious Awareness so as to be cleared from her energy field.

Image: “The Fall of Man and the Lamentation,” painting by Hugo van der Goes, circa 1470:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hugo_van_der_Goes_-_The_Fall_of_Man_and_The_Lamentation_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg … DESCRIPTION: The setting is the Garden of Eden; Adam is on the left; the beautiful and chaste Eve in the center, picking an apple from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. On the right is the serpent, depicted as a shorter (non-alpha) woman with a reptilian body … COMMENT: I take this legend as the beginning of the myth dividing women into two groups: ‘the good wife’ and ‘the fallen woman’.

To continue, she and her husband led the musical celebration. I, as a very sensitive empath, was in the group. I had no designs on either of them. But there was a strong energy of sexual repression in the group, and as soon as she thought a sexual thought, it would ricochet over to me, and then back to her, and her Soul wounding would be engaged, so she would think I was after her man. Then I would feel empathic dismay equal to her feeling of dismay. Like this …

Oh, my goodness! What will I do?

And because they were in a leadership position, she began to chant, over and over again, in her conscious mind, words that had to do with nay-saying or extreme anger about other people daring to have a sexual thought about her husband. It got to the point, after a meeting or two, where I could not go back there, because she was planning it in advance, whether subconsciously or consciously; planning a campaign about ‘the Scarlet Letter’ for me, as the most clairsensitive person in this group of people who were very sensitive on the clair plane. The other people did not know what to do.

Painting: “The Whore of Babylon,” by William Blake … https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/41/William_Blake_whore_babylon.jpg … DESCRIPTION: A seven-headed man with clawed hands and feet, crouched on all fours, vomiting the forms of men and women onto the ground. These people are in various stances to do with earthly life … standing, running, working, hunting with a spear, riding a chariot, and so on. The man’s lowest face has horns and looks evil; his highest face looks human and noble. The latter is gazing apprehensively at a beautiful, bejeweled woman wearing an orange skirt and seated on his back. In the woman’s right hand is a chalice with two handles; from the chalice dreams of naked men and women stream forth into the air.

Groups Worldwide Are Emerging from the Subconscious Waters into the Light of Awareness

This scenario is being repeated over and over again in groups these days; there is a certain point where people are just on the verge of dipping into repressed memories and bringing them up into the Light of consciousness, and nobody has a precedent for how to act or react to what they hear.

The piece of art, “Booooooom” by Benjamin Craig, represents very well, I feel, the rising above the waters of the collective subconscious …

Image: Booooooom” by Benjamin Craig … https://www.booooooom.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/benjamin-craig-03.jpg“Painting of a young man emerging from water,” by Benjamin Craig, at I Heart My Art … https://www.iheartmyart.com/post/43826121562/benjamin-g-craig-watercolor-acrylic-and-pencil DESCRIPTION: The face of a young man shown three times. At the bottom of the image, the face is submerged under water and the eyes closed. In the middle of the image, the face is emerging from the surface of the water and the eyes and mouth are opening. Near the top of the photo the face is out of the water, the eyes are gazing up towards the sky, and the mouth is open, as if breathing in air. There are red flower petals floating on the water. A big brown snake is swimming through the water on the left side and top of the image; its head is near top right, and its red eyes are open … COMMENT: The snake might represent the fear death, or fear of exposing subconscious, repressed thoughts and emotions, or the kundalini energy of awakening.

A Call to Action for the Lightworkers of Los Angeles: Let Us Do Our Best to Ease Other Folks’ ‘Waking Up Grumpiness’?

Image: Painting of a young man by Henrietta Harris … https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/8f/d2/0c/8fd20cd6ea94d016803f2d2374580784.jpg … DESCRIPTION AND COMMENT: This is a painting of a sober-looking young man with his head partly out of the water. To my mind, he looks a little like an empath wondering what to do next.

Nobody knows what to do at this point, so those of us that are rising to consciousness in this regard are all experimenting with ways to assist in alleviating Soul wounding responses, automatic responses, when we gather in groups, so that the groups can continue in a harmonious way as the Ascension process continues.

Image: “Giver of Life,” by Mark Henson … https://www.markhensonart.com/custom-gallery/art_print_products/giver-of-life-custom-print … DESCRIPTION: Spirit lifting water in cupped hands,

I urge all of you who are now at the conscious level … and I feel there are many, many of you in Los Angeles … to try to think of a way to transmute these negative energies about sexuality to the Light, through your own heart center, through the energies of the group, or through some small action on the astral or physical plane … such as a kind word … that will help to switch, or twist, the energy that is being expressed, from the negative to the positive.

I expect, coming into the June 2017 Solstice next month, that many more techniques will begin to manifest.

Example: The Lilith Dilemma

There are just a couple more things regarding this topic. One is the Lilith dilemma that I mentioned early on, some years back. It has to do with ‘the third woman’ … the evil woman, the dance hall girl, as compared to the wife, and social attitudes towards that. I recommend taking a look at that blog …

Link: “The Lilith Mental Filter,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 May 2016, revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5lz ..

… because sometimes you can identify cultural patterns in the way that the noospheric energies move. And that is one; it is called the Lilith, the ‘fallen woman’.

Image: Bas-relief of Lilith, from Sumerian mythology … https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/af261-0v2efitjq29crgzwg.jpg … COMMENT: Note the clawed feet stepping on a two-headed beast of prey. 

A man will treat a woman that he perceives as Lilith quite differently from the woman to whom he is married. This reflects in the noospheric energies that occur. Sometimes that can be identified. My hope is that here will be a fix. Maybe we will come up with something.

Image: Painting of a woman with a prim mouth, distorted to the right of her face, by Henrietta Harris … https://inkedribs.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/henrietta-harris_04.jpg?w=529&h=738 COMMENT: This painting is reminiscent of the ‘proper’ wife; desire not to speak her truth distorts or displaces the mouth energy.

Example: The Antisocial Personality Interacts with the Empath

Then there is the antisocial personality contribution to the area of sexuality. Dealing with this requires, I feel, being in a completely neutral state of mind. This is one of the cases where repetition of the phrase …

May you be blessed with unconditional love!

… helps, because it posits a third party doing the blessing. Whether it be God or your celestial Ascension team, invocation of a blessing entails visualization of a third party that confers the unconditional love.

The Vampire Effect. That is very important because otherwise, the antisocial personality will latch onto the sex drive and onto the heart chakra of the empath, and drain the heart chakra with constant stimulation of the sexual chakra at the same time. And there is also a question of mind control that occurs as the energy field weakens because of the atypical energy configuration of the electromagnetic field of the antisocial personality. So it is very important to make that distinction.

On Warding Off Hateful Thoughts from Others

The below visualizations work for the empath being confronted with the chakric patterning of the antisocial personality, and also for the empath confronting the Dark bodies (repressed Soul wounded energies) of family and friends …

Feeling of Being Surrounded But Full of Faith. The feeling starts like this, with a feeling of being surrounded by other people’s Dark bodies. The empath first feels faith, like the central man in the painting …

Image:”The Blessed Guillaume de Toulouse (755-812) Tormented by Demons (oil on canvas),” by Fredeau, Ambroise (1589-1673) …  https://biblioklept.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/tumblr_ltprof64jm1r1dpd5o1_1280.jpg … COMMENT: To my mind, this is is an exaggeration, and a little too spooky.

Descent of Grace as Light. Then you imagine a field of grace, like Light coming from heaven …

Image: “In Worship,” by Jaijelinne … http://pre13.deviantart.net/fa15/th/pre/i/2012/321/1/3/in_worship_by_jaijelinne-d5l8qbk.jpg … DESCRIPTION AND COMMENT: This is a painting of a young woman with arms outstretched. There is a white dove above her, and a column of golden light is pouring down from on high, onto her physical form. It is the faith of the young woman, I feel, that triggers or activates the connection with Divine.

Alternative: Descent of Grace as an Angelic Being. Or you might image grace raining down in the form of an etheric angel, as in this painting …

Image: “A Healing Angel as Seen Clairvoyantly by Geoffrey Hodson,” a Theosophist …  http://www.minhtrietmoi.org/Theosophy/Hodson/Sharing%20the%20Light%20I_files/image013.jpg … DESCRIPTION: A person is sitting crosslegged on a staircase. A tall, symmetrical, protective angelic form stands above and around the person; the angel is like yellow light, outlined in green. White light streams down from the angel’s heart, onto the seated person. Yellow light streams upward from the angel’s head. The background of the painting is blue light. 

The Split Searchlight Image. Then you might imagine that Light is split in two from on high, and pours down on both you and on the Dark body of another person. The visualization is a little like this, only you must imagine that the point of origin is overhead, in the sky, and that the one column of light is continuing to pour down on you, and that Source sends another beam of light down on your persecutor …

Image: Split beam of a searchlight … http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/BVH/excelsplit.jpg ..

Here is a drawing reminiscent of the split Light image. You can imagine the two points at the tops of the cones tipping together to create the split searchlight effect …

Image: “‘Team to Team’ Optimization Visualization,” by Alice B. Clagett, 12 January 2017, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: There are two stick figures; the left one is labeled ‘You’; and the right one is labeled ‘Another person’. Above each stick figure is a very tall angle bracket representing a cone of light. maybe six times higher than the stick figures. Inside the cone of the stick figure labeled ‘You’ are the words ‘Your Team’. Inside the cone of the stick figure labeled ‘Another person’ are the words ‘Their Team’. At the tips of the cones, high above the stick figures, is a horizontal arrow with two heads, which point to the top of each cone. The arrow is labeled ‘Team to Team’.

Image: “‘Team to Team’ Optimization Visualization,” by Alice B. Clagett, 12 January 2017, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com

DESCRIPTION: There are two stick figures; the left one is labeled ‘You’; and the right one is labeled ‘Another person’. Above each stick figure is a very tall angle bracket representing a cone of light. maybe six times higher than the stick figures. Inside the cone of the stick figure labeled ‘You’ are the words ‘Your Team’. Inside the cone of the stick figure labeled ‘Another person’ are the words ‘Their Team’. At the tips of the cones, high above the stick figures, is a horizontal arrow with two heads, which point to the top of each cone. The arrow is labeled ‘Team to Team’.

Alternative: The Sacred Heart of Christ Image. The well known Sacred Heart of Christ painting reminds me, in a horizontal sense, of this same split-Light visualization …

Image: Sacred Heart of Jesus … http://www.catholic.az/en/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/sacred-heart_rays.jpg … DESCRIPTION: Christ is standing, barefoot, on pavement. He has long brown hair and a flowing beige robe. There is a halo round his head. From his heart issue two streams of light: To the viewer’s left, a red stream of light, and to the viewer’s right, a blue stream.

In the painting, there are two rays of Light streaming from Christ’s heart, one red and one blue. Thus Christ, in the painting, is like the apex of the split searchlight shown above. Imagine that the two streams of Light issuing from the heart of Christ are transforming in nature.

Imaging that one of the streams connects to the empath’s electromagnetic field, and the other connects to the Dark body of the antisocial personality (which either accepts it, or more than likely, is repulsed by it). Thus Christ is the intermediary who diverts the energy of the antisocial personality from the energy of the empath.

The Piano Pouring Down Grace Image. If the Dark bodies of many people are dissing you, you might visualize grace pouring down like a stream of pure water and transforming their subconscious minds …

Image: Painting of a piano by Timothy Martin… https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/15/3d/13/153d131564168bac95b3ffacada50497.jpg … DESCRIPTION: Piano lit with light inside, with lotus flowers on it. From inside the piano a stream of pure water flows down the keyboard, and into a pond with lily pads in it.

Example: Pro-Sex Group Ratchets Up Sexual Energy; Empath Departs Group Temporarily

Then there is the question of the ratcheting up, in a group situation, of the sexual energy field. This is when the people in the group are pro-sex (positively oriented toward sexual energy and relatively free of sexual malware). Not necessarily at that moment, but in general, their orientation is pro-sex. So one person in the group has a feeling …

I would like to find a sexual partner.
Gee, is anybody out there for me?

On the Empath Stabilizing His or Her Electromagnetic Field as a Clair Shield. Now for the empath, at this point, one thing to do is to stabilize the electromagnetic field. I have offered many different ways of doing this … whether mudras (hand positions), or visualizations, or meditations, or just in general, diet and getting plenty of rest. There are a lot of different ways to make the electromagnetic field very strong.

And so I suggest, at this point, utilizing whatever is at hand to enhance and strengthen the personal electromagnetic field. Then what happens when this person’s thought form impinges on your own energy field, is that the energy field acts as a neutral barrier, and the same energy with which the thought form hit the energy barrier, causes it to boomerang off of it and back to the person. It may then settle in the sender’s energy field, or it may bounce off to other people in the room.

Image: Weak Electromagnetic Field versus Strong Electromagnetic Field in a Woman … https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0113/8756/8186/articles/color_1400x.progressive.jpg?v=1549894173 … COMMENT: Note how ‘bounce-off-able’ the strong EMF looks. The whorls and indentations in the weak EMF dampen the boomerang effect, much in the ways that the baffles or ‘waffles’ in acoustic foam tile muffle sound.

When your energy shield is down, some of the people in the room, or maybe all of the people in the room, will begin to feel uncomfortably sexual. That is because, in general in groups, even though they may feel in favor of the notion of sexuality … avant-garde in that matter … they do not feel like suddenly taking advantage of that desire in a group situation. And so the people will become very antsy.

The only thing I can say about that right now is this: It is important for the empath to exit the geographic vicinity as soon as possible. It is very important to go away from that group glom, and thus to allow the people to ratchet down, without the boomerang effect of your own energy field shield. In a group that feels, overall, positively toward sexuality, I find it all right to visit with them again at a later date (after the astral airs clear).

Example: Empath Is in the Presence of a Group that Feels Negatively Toward Sexual Energy

Prudery. Now, let us go on to the case of the empath who finds himself … whether on the physical plane or just on the astral plane … associated with a group that is very negatively inclined towards sex … a group that always believes sex should be repressed; for example …

  • a group of celibate people,
  • or a group of puritanical people, who have a very strong notion that sexuality should only be used in specific situations … say, for the perpetuation of the species … and that it must be repressed in all other situations

… people who have a very strong view along those lines.

Image: “Delivered from Prude,” a painting by Chris Mars … https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/work/image/39481/slide/Delivered_from_Prude_3A7D2C.72.jpg … DESCRIPTION: Left: Faces, torsos, and bodies of people diseased physically and emotionally. Center bottom: Copulating couple. Right: Nude woman, no legs, sitting at top of a staircase. Center: Houses in a town. Lower top: a person with bat-like wings emerging from a wall. Top: Two astral forms of people flying in the air … COMMENT: There is a 3D effect. The textures and images convey the notion of hide-bound ideas about sexuality.

Drawbacks of Psychic Surgery to Prevent Sexual Feelings. I have even run into spiritual adepts who do psychic surgery on the lay people that support them to prevent them from feeling sexual by cutting the spinal column around the level of the narrow part of the waist, psychically.

As has been discussed in other blogs, what this eventually engenders is Soul devolution, because it leads to an injury that the School of Theosophy terms the snapping of the ‘silver thread’ or ‘silver cord’. This then separates what Theosophy terms the Higher Triad (including the Soul, the discriminative faculty or intellect, and the sensory recording faculty of the mind), from the Lower Quaternary, including the physical body, the life principle, the astral body, and the desire body (kama rupa). 

In my terms, the snapping of the ‘silver thread’ might be conceived as the snapping in twain of the Higher Mental Body and the Lower Mental Body at the ‘astral bridge’ (the heart center). When the subtle heart is broken, the elegant, finely conceived and executed human machine is sundered. The body vehicle, in particular the subtle bodies become no longer suitable for ‘ensoulment’ … for the Soul to settle down onto.

Ratcheting Up of Sexual Rage in Prudish Groups; Empath Departs Group Permanently. Leaving this interesting footnote to one side, let us take up the issue of the Lightworker empath who finds himself or herself in the company of people who are ascetic with regard to sex, whether they be trained to emphasize their higher mental faculties, or whether through psychic surgery they be prevented from feeling their natural sexual urges.

Then what happens when the empath strengthens the electromagnetic field shield barrier and becomes stable in his or her energy is a ratcheting back and forth, a boomerang effect, of those people’s negative thoughts … And the group grows more sternly, chaotically even, disinclined towards the act of sex.

Image: Time Lapse of Movement of Balls on a Pool Table …  https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bb/8_ball_break_time_lapse.jpg/300px-8_ball_break_time_lapse.jpg … DESCRIPTION: Pool table with cue-balls set in a triangle. The blurred trajectory of balls played during a game can also be seen.

If the Lightworker empath has a very strong electromagnetic field shield, such a group’s feeling of negativity towards the act of sex can turn into what is called hatred of men (‘misandry’), hatred of women (‘misogyny’), or hatred of people that are perceived as sex objects. And so, it can lead to acts of violence and so forth.

Image: “Golden Dream” by Vincent Johnson … https://fireplacechats.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/golden-dream-2012.jpg?w=537&h=719&h=719 … DESCRIPTION: An orange-red background behind a golden-orange triangle around a smaller asparagus-green triangle … COMMENT: This painting reminds me of the nature of the ‘astral air’ when a group feels sexual rage. Imagine that the asparagus-green triangle represents the group, the golden-orange larger triangle represents their emotion-laden nascent thoughts, and the orange-red background represents the fomentation of the astral air around the group, as rage-filled thought forms are flung off into the ethers.

It is very important for the empath with a strong electromagnetic field (EMF) shield to exit from such a group … I would say, probably permanently, and to find a group that is more copacetic as far as sexual views are concerned. This will let the more sexually negative group gravitate to the type of sexual energy that they prefer.

Conclusion

I wish you all God’s love and grace and joy in this time of the highest Light, in a year that is near the Solar Cycle Minimum.

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

Dear Ones,

Here are my thoughts on the United States economy, the American Dream, and things we as a community of humankind might think of working on together for ourselves and for the sake of our children.

Local economies, middle America, small business. Prices and the Consumer Price Index (CPI). How can we have safe places, good businesses, good schools, environments where the American ideals are looked up to?

How can folks in our communities support each other in grassroots ways?

What would be the advantage of smaller homes, electronics-free homes, and sustainable living?

The healing effect of interacting with the Great Outdoors, with church, and with friends.

How can we help our children grow into the ideals of Democratic living that were envisioned when the Constitution was written?

The video is followed by an edited Summary …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have something to say about the United States right now, and the economy, that really struck me as I traveled about. I only have the video of this place, but I will talk a little about some other places I visited too.

Development Opportunity: Abandoned Planned Subdivision 40 Miles South of Barstow

Right now I am maybe 40 miles south of Barstow. It is desert land. There are mountains here; and I expect, if you live higher up on the mountains, it is cooler in the middle of the summer. It is pretty barren; I will show you. [Shows a curbed, greystone-paved road in the desert.]

You will notice these curbs here in the middle of the desert. There was a road here; this is greystone in the middle. or greystone mixed with granite. And then there was this pretty fancy curb, going along here.

And off in the distance there are, probably water pipes or sewer pipes? … And more of them [piled on the sand] all around here.

And there was this giant subdivision apparently planned here, some time ago. [Shows a planting of trees in the desert.] And you will notice these trees here seem to be part of the plantation that took place, in addition to the curbs and the roads that were set up.

And those trees are still alive; but there were quite a few palm trees that just did not make it. This was a little forest of palm trees that did not make it … See here? [Shows dead palm trees.]

And over here, on the other side, this was the main road into the planned subdivision … [Shows majestically wide, greystone-paved road] … and there are plantings of palm trees all along it. I thought maybe some were still alive, but [zooms to the top of one palm tree] I think maybe they passed on for lack of water.

I just came in the entrance road. Then I took a look at the buildings over here. There are a few buildings … [shows buildings, with graffiti on their outer walls] … all deserted, and then I guess there is a school over there, which is in excellent repair … a good-looking school, on the other side of the [paved] road [outside the subdivision].

But basically, what we have here is somebody’s dream … one person’s American dream. He probably put a lot of money into it … probably bought the land for not much money, then arranged for this build-out … what do you call it, when you get the curbs and the roads in? …. Also, I saw drainage ditches for water to flow through in the wet season.

So they planned for water drainage too, and probably had plans for all the utilities, for people they hoped would buy homes here.

But the few buildings that were on the property are just to wrack and ruin right now. And then this other building over here … [shows a one-story, smallish building] … it had a tile roof. Maybe it was a sales office? … The tiles are all down. Maybe somebody is using them to build a new house, or is demolishing that place? I do not know.

Route 66 Redevelopment and Resettlement Opportunities

So, a little earlier this winter, I was travelling down Route 66. You know Route 66 … the song about that from long ago, and how you get your kicks on Route 66?

Video:  “Rolling Stones – Route 66 1976.” by Hairyblues, 24 march 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE36QIwwkOc ..

It used to be the main thoroughfare that people used … one of them … from the East to the West, in the United States.

And then later, the superhighways were built, East to West, and all the businesses along Route 66 languished because of it … because most of the traffic would bypass Route 66 and go down these very fast superhighways instead.

But, if you would really like an enjoyable trip through America, I would suggest taking what remains of Route 66, if possible, because it is much more scenic.

One thing I noticed about Route 66 was that it was a little like this [the abandoned planned subdivision]: There were just so many buildings that were boarded up, or half-way demolished or deserted. Or maybe one person would be living in a motel or hotel that used to see a thriving business.

There were some businesses that would cater to the local population, that were open and doing ok. But that was the minority of businesses in those places.

Scenes from Route 66, January 2016. [The below photos are not in the video.]

Not Covered in the News: The Great Slowdown That Is Taking Place in the American Economy

What I got, in those areas, is that the slow-down in the economy in the United States is pretty big … and that there are other issues that may be covered in the news, that are really not relevant to our lives, as Americans, that are taking up the spot, on the news, that should be covered by discussion of what we should do about the local economies.  What should we do. to help Middle America rise to meet its financial needs? What, in the way of business aid? What, in the way of helping people accomplish their dreams in America? You know?

Inflation, Perhaps Not Fully Represented in Changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI)

And the other thing that I have been noticing lately, whenever I go to a store, is that the prices are … I do not know what has happened, in the last few years, with regard to prices … It is phenomenal, really, how much prices have risen. At least, so it seems to me. I do not know what the cause of it is. It seems to me, too, that this increase in the cost of goods is not fully represented in changes in the consumer price index (the CPI).

Call to Action: Let Congress Consider How to Help Middle America Achieve the American Dream

  • the failure of businesses, in all but the large cities, it seems,
  • and the very greatly increased price of goods, which I do not find that much substantiation for, in the Consumer Price Index,

… these two things add up to economic difficulties in the United States that are not being squarely and honestly faced, I feel.

And I hope, during the coming year, that Congress has a chance to look at all this, and hear the stories of Americans, and rise to the aid of the average person, who needs a safe place and a good business, good schools, to keep his or her family safe, and to let them grow up in an environment where the American ideals are cherished and espoused and looked up to … rather than a crime-ridden place that is full of bad examples of the way to Wisdom and Love and Light … the kind of place where a family can feel that their lives are not threatened, as they go about their daily activities.

But instead, the community looks, one family to the next family, for support and understanding and assistance in grassroots growing of local businesses, and sustainable living. What do you say?

Would a Changeup to Sustainable Living Negatively or Positively Affect Quality of Life in America?

Suppose we had much smaller houses, with a lot more space around them … Would not that be easier to heat and to keep cool in the summertime? Would not the prices of utilities be lower? And outside, the children could be playing, right? Would not that be cool?

Would Less Ownership of Electronics Abate Neighborhood Theft?

And the other thing I am thinking is that, the question might be raised … family to family … Whether we really need the electronics that are so sought after by the break-in experts, and the thieves, and so forth. What would happen, if our family did without television sets and computers and handhelds, and so forth? How would our quality of life be affected? Would it be worse, or would it be better? Would we be stronger in our ethics and our values with, or without, the virtual reality?

I made up my own mind about this long ago, and decided I did not really want television in my life. I did not want that kind of entertainment; that my entertainment would be the Great Outdoors, and church, and friends … playing dominoes, and so forth.

What Can We Do to Make America a Better Place to Live?

My thought is: What can we all do, to make America a better place to live? More safe for our children? And what can we do to help our children grow into the ideals of democratic living that were envisioned when the Constitution was written? That is what I think. We have a lot of questions to answer right now.

You all, take care. I love you lots. I wish you great abundance, and prosperity, and happiness … each and every one.

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