Dear Ones,

CHARISMATIC CATHOLICISM

In my reading, I recently came across the term ‘Charismatic Catholicism’ and looked it up in Wikipedia. To my amazement I found that there are 120 million Catholics worldwide who are Charismatic Catholics, and that it has been looked upon favorably by the last four popes …

“The charismatic movement is the international trend of historically mainstream Christian congregations adopting beliefs and practices similar to Pentecostalism. Fundamental to the movement is the use of spiritual gifts (charismata). Among mainline Protestants, the movement began around 1960. Among Roman Catholics, it originated around 1967 …

“In the Roman Catholic church, the movement became particularly popular in the Filipino, Korean, and Hispanic communities of the United States, in the Philippines, and in Latin America, mainly Brazil. Travelling priests and lay people associated with the movement often visit parishes and sing what are known as charismatic masses. It is thought to be the second largest distinct sub-movement (some 120 million members) within global Catholicism, along with Traditional Catholicism….” –from Link: “Charismatic Movement,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charismatic_movement#Roman_Catholicism ..

“Perceptions of the Charismatic movement vary within the Catholic Church, although it has been favourably regarded by the last four Popes. Proponents hold the belief that certain charismata (a Greek word for “gifts”) are still bestowed by the Holy Spirit today as they were in Early Christianity as described in the Bible.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

CHARISMA AMONGST PROTESTANT CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS

In addition there are charismatic movements in these Protestant denominations: Anglicanism, Evangelicalism, Lutheranism, Methodism, Calvinism, Adventism, and Eastern Orthodoxy, as well as the Pentecostal Christian movement …

Link: “Pentecostalism,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentecostalism ..

CATHOLIC ‘CHARISMS’ AND LIGHTWORKER GIFTS

On behalf of Lightworkers, Ascensioneers, Pathfinders, and Wayshowers, I note the striking congruities between our Lightworker gifts and the Catholic ‘charisms’ …

“Renewal advocates believe that the charisms identified in Saint Paul’s writings, especially in Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, and Ephesians 4:11-12, continue to exist and to build up the Church (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, §2003). The nine charismatic gifts considered extraordinary in character include: faith, expression of knowledge and wisdom, miracles, the gift of tongues and their interpretation, prophecy, discernment of spirits and healing.(1 Corinthians 12:8-10) …. These gifts are related to the traditional seven gifts of the Holy Spirit described in Isaiah 11:1-2 (wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord, as listed in Catechism of the Catholic Church, §1831). The nine charismatic gifts in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 are also related to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy…. Other references to charisms in the Catechism of the Catholic Church include §§688, 768, 799-801, 890, 951, 1508 (charism of healing) and 2035. The belief that spiritual gifts exist in the present age is called Continuationism.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

CAVEATS FOR LIGHTWORKERS REGARDING FITTING IN WITH CHRISTIAN CONGREGATIONS

On Appropriate Restraint of Incoming Light During Worship

I feel it is important for Lightworkers who wish to join a Christian Church that they restrain their charismatic gifts during regular church services, as outpouring of grace through Spirit can be upsetting to those of the congregation not so gifted.

As some of you have perhaps found, pastors and ministers who are holding church services can understandably feel that outpouring of grace during services might interfere with the performance of their sacred office.

For instance, outpouring of grace during the Offertory … the uplifting of bread and wine at the Eucharist … while understandable and nearly unavoidable from the stance of the participating Lightworker … might fill the church with such Light as to cause a pastor or minister to falter in speaking the words of the ritual. Speaking of the words is very important to the perfection of the rite; and so I suggest that attending Lightworkers appeal to their Ascension Teams to flow through only as much grace through Spirit as is best for the ritual at hand. The ritual is, I feel, of great importance in dispensation of grace to humankind.

The Spectre of Excommunication for Catholic Lightworkers

The spectre of excommunication is always a concern for Catholics who are Lightworkers; thus I advise prudence and circumspection when with a congregation and its pastors. If we do our best not to stand out, and are careful not to express dissent of any kind, or to make any prophetic announcements; if we avoid healing anyone in the congregation through the languages of Light and sound; if, in fact, no one knows us other than to discern our devotion to the Mass and its Sacraments, then, I feel, we will be more likely to fit in.

In particular, I advise avoiding engaging in discussions about the currents of charisma and mysticism oft found in Catholic congregations today, as those with whom we speak may have strong feelings either for or against. By not discussing controversial topics we can stay out of the limelight and avoid controversy, I feel. In other words, when with a group of people, I feel it is best to ‘go with the flow’, and not to go on about topics that may create divisiveness or differences of opinion.

Were topics near to our hearts to come up spontaneously during a conversation, and were a question to be put to us personally by perhaps one other person, and not within the hearing of a group of people, then would be the time to respond briefly and to the point, without contradicting anything we know about Christ’s teachings. So I feel.

It seems to me quite unlikely that such a question might be posed, out of thin air, by anyone in a congregation. Thus through circumspection and brevity we may remain unnoticed and reasonably well accepted, and be able to continue to enjoy the rites of the Church and the blessings they rain down upon all humankind.

On Holding Charismatic Gatherings Outside of Regular Church Services

I read about criticism of Charismatic Catholics as follows …

“Critics accuse Charismatic Catholics of misinterpreting, or in some cases violating, Church teachings on worship and liturgy. Traditional Catholics, in particular, argue that charismatic practices shift the focus of worship away from reverent communion with Christ in the Eucharist and towards individual emotions and non-liturgical experiences as a substitute.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

In the same article I read …

“Catholics who practice charismatic worship usually hold prayer meetings outside of Mass and feature such gifts as prophecy, faith healing, and glossolalia.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

I can see that holding prayer meetings … especially with live spiritual music in which those at the meetings participate … would be a good way to express charismatic gifts without disruption of the traditional church services through ‘grandstanding’ or extra added elements beyond established ritual.

On the Difficult Question of Egoic Aggrandizement

Grandiosement of the ego is a peculiar pitfall for those gifted with charisms, and one that leads to entirely the wrong path in life. At every moment, I feel, one must align with God’s Will, His Heart, and His Mind; that is the only way to purity of Spirit and outflowing of grace.

I myself feel it it best to remain … insofar as possible … unknown to the congregation and to their pastors and ministers in this regard. Better to be unknown than constantly to be harassed and tested by notions of self-aggrandizement. Not being known at all is, I feel, a much more comfortable position in which to experience outpouring of grace, as God wills, and in the moments He chooses.

On Faking the Gifts of Prophecy, Healing and Speaking in Tongues

I note especially, from a day I attended a Pentecostal church service in Durango, Colorado, that members of Pentecostal congregations want to fit in. They want to be Spirit-filled. And sometimes they may pretend to have gifts such as prophecy, healing through laying on of hands, and glossolalia (speaking in tongues) so as to feel welcome in a congregation. I feel this is understandable from a human point of view, and expectable.

It might be helpful for a pastor or minister who has those gifts to let the congregation know they are welcome to attend just as they are … even without the gifts of Spirit … and that Spirit flows through us when it will, and not necessarily, Lord knows, at a time convenient to us.

On Lightworkers Being Cast Out by Prevailing Prophets in a Church

I feel we Lightworkers must assess the issue of one-upmanship and jealousy by prevailing prophets in a church. If we arrive with charisms, it is quite likely that a prophet who has a stance or ‘holding’ in that church may feel his standing to be threatened by our arrival.

In a church where there are one or two Spirit-filled prophets, known to the rest of the congregation for their true visions and their healing ability, a Dark vision by those so revered … to the effect that we Lightworkers are ‘sent by Satan’ might easily be believed.

If action is taken to cast a Lightworker out of a church in this way, I wonder if it might be helpful to talk with the pastor or minister about fitting in with the prevailing prophets, and helping them feel at ease? I say ‘I wonder’ because when this happened to me some years ago, I was too devastated by the casting out to approach the pastor about it later through dialogue.

To my way of feeling, there is nothing worse for me, as a Lightworker, than to be accused by several good Christians of being the very opposite of what I truly am. On the other hand, it is true that people are people. It would be better to try to talk together and resolve these misunderstandings, than never to address them. This I feel especially to be a good avenue when Lightworkers live in small towns with few choices of places to worship.

CONCLUSION

I see the likelihood of being ‘cast out’ (in the case of a Protestant church) or ‘excommunicated’ (in the case of Catholicism) as a cause for concern for Lightworkers, Ascensioneers, Pathfinders and Wayshowers.

I hope this blog offers those gifted with the Incoming Light a toehold for interacting with our Christian churches with less concern about blame and judgment by their congregations. First of all, I suggest we attend those churches that look favorably upon charisma. Then if the issue of ‘being different’ or ‘wrong’ comes up, we can talk together about a church’s stance on charisms and charismatic Christianity. It may be we will all gain many new insights in that way.

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

Teach each of them to get up and go on

Let trust grow between us; keep our hearts so warm
That we’ll know we can weather every storm
And find in each other the means to survive
The strife and the struggle, the hubbub and jive

May we say to each other, and know in the end, it was …

Job well done!

I got it from both ends
But I am the most well adjusted

I know how to deal with the Lord it over
And how to take care of the weeping youngster

They say that as a child I walked
Into the house with a yellow nose
From the pollen on the garden flowers …

I know which is the sweetest rose
And which the most beautiful flower!

Job well done!
Job well done!

Now I find I can juggle work with joy
I deal well with girls and also with boys
I am cream of the crop, and top of my form
For, raised in the middle I found out the norm

May God be blessed
As He blesses me.

When he was young
To wake him and clothe him

And wipe off those tears
And mind him and scold him
And quell every fear

Job well done!
Job well done!

Now that he’s grown
It is up to him
To do as he wants
In this wide, wide world
And land as he must
on his own two feet

May God be blessed
As He blesses us.

Because then my siblings
Would give me a swat,
But I love to create things.

Sweetly coddles me;
I’m cool and collected
And happy to be
Loyal to family
And cleverly me!

Soundtrack and Words
10 December 2019

 

When I was young my parents told me
When to get up and when to sleep

Go to school … Go to church …
Don’t swallow that gum
And whatever you do,
Don’t put your feet
In the x-ray machine
In the back of the Marlboro shoe store

Play well with your friends
Smile when you speak
Be a good neighbor
Treat your folks well.

And mom said:
We may be poor
But we brush our teeth
And watch what we say
And watch what we eat

And dad said:
Though we have naught to spare
We stand by our deeds!
We’re poor as church mice
But honest and clean!

And we were.

I say to them
Now their work is o’er:

Job well done!
Job well done!

Now it’s up to me
to play that role
for the little child
that abides in me.

May God be blessed
As He blesses me.

. . . . .

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

Turning of the Ages 9: Prayer of a Child Orphaned in Later Life . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

9. PRAYER OF A CHILD ORPHANED IN LATER LIFE
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
10 December 2019

When I was young my parents told me
When to get up and when to sleep

Go to school … Go to church …
Don’t swallow that gum
And whatever you do,
Don’t put your feet
In the x-ray machine
In the back of the Marlboro shoe store

Play well with your friends
Smile when you speak
Be a good neighbor
Treat your folks well.

And mom said:
We may be poor
But we brush our teeth
And watch what we say
And watch what we eat

And dad said:
Though we have naught to spare
We stand by our deeds!
We’re poor as church mice
But honest and clean!

And we were.

I say to them
Now their work is o’er:

Job well done!
Job well done!

Now it’s up to me
to play that role
for the little child
that abides in me.

May God be blessed
As He blesses me.

. . . . .

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

How to Greet People in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 25 December 2018; published on 16 June 2019

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about the protocol on greeting people in Los Angeles supermarkets. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

A little while ago I explained the code word, the code language, for greeting someone in a car if you are in the Colorado area … the way to vet yourself as a Coloradan …

Link: “Transforming a Projected Body Elemental with Love,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 1 September 2018; published on 6 September 2015; transcribed on 21 December 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-534 ..

But I thought it also might be best to provide some information for those Coloradans who want to visit Los Angeles, so that they will know how to greet people too. It is very different here. The most important thing to know about visiting Los Angeles is: Never look anyone in the eye, if you are passing them by, or if you are in the store. Whatever you do, avoid eye contact.

The results of failing to do this are pretty severe. People figure either you are homeless and on the dole … looking for a handout … or else you’re a psychopath after injuring them or doing them some harm. So be very careful, in walking the streets of Los Angeles, never to look anyone in the eye.

The exception is young children; they have not yet learned these rules. And so it is quite a joy to greet young children just about anywhere in the world. Now you know the answer. Remember, not like this …

Crystal Ceremony for Cities of Earth . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 8 October 2015; published on 12 October 2015; transcribed on 23 January 2019

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

A crystal ceremony near the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico to bless and heal all the cities of Earth. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would perform a little crystal ceremony here, on these ancient lands in New Mexico, close to these sacred mountains here, on a beautiful day, with some clouds to keep the weather cool … … but not too many clouds; so that it is very beautiful, walking …

And I found this juniper tree, that is sacred to the Native Americans, and to me …

And near it there are bundles of wood that have naturally fallen there [pans right] …

… and over here as well [pans left] … I am going to move that can, and put it someplace else …

And they [the bundles of wood] are like offerings of fire for the fiery spirit of the crystals [that is, symbolic offerings of fire … not that I would ever set fire to them … My thought was that one day, a long time from now, Nature herself may make this offering … as is the natural way.]

And here I have cactus. The cactus is my defense for this beautiful, sacred ceremony, in this beautiful, sacred place. And so I have natural offerings in the bundles of wood;I have protection because of the cactus;and I have the energy of healing from the juniper tree, under these sacred skies. And so, that is my location. Now let me move that can, and take it out of here …

So here I have, right next to my sacred spot, another kind of cactus for protection; and juniper all around, baby junipers, here and there, for new sacred healing energy …

And this is the spot that I have chosen, right here. Let’s see … I brought four crystals, for the different directions … You can see where the shadow goes, see here? …

So there is my crystal offering: On the north, and on the south, and on the east, and on the west … … I ask the Divine to uplift the energy of all the cities of Earth in such a way that it may express itself just as these beautiful crystals do …

… With clarity, with the beauty of the sunlight within them, and with the healing energy of the natural world all around them.

By God’s grace may this be so, that all the cities of Earth may be healed; that the Devic world may once more find its home in, above, and around the cities, so that they may find themselves once more in balance with nature.

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on a projected body elemental I was able to transform with love. There is also a little on repressed memories of soul trauma, and on guilt over death of those we love …

There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I wanted to talk a little about a body elemental that I encountered, while I was driving along this long, lonely road here, out in the country, by the most beautiful river on God’s green Earth. [As I recall, I was heading east on Trujillo Road (Routes 169 and 500), along the San Juan River, east of Navajo Reservoir in Colorado.]

Of course, all rivers are beautiful …

I was driving up a hill, and it was a little bit scary, because there were no guardrails on this road! I passed a lady … maybe from a ranching family? … in a pickup truck. She was heading my way. And, according to my clair vision, her astral body was not yet, I think, connected to her physical body and her mind. You know?

When people first start rising up, it is like that … Their astral body (their emotional body) is starting to talk and recognize things; but it has not yet made connection with the whole person.

I was looking at the ghost town that was around there. There was a big ghost town; a lot of little shacks by the river. Then I was heading up the hill, and in her astral body (her emotional body) she said: Oh, look there! Look out! There’s a looky-loo! … in the local way of talking.

Western Way to Wave Hello While Driving

I waved, because that is the custom here … to just wave a little bit. You have to be nonchalant in your wave. You are holding onto the steering wheel …

You are passing somebody else … This is the way you do it here … And you raise your fingers like that, see? …

“Conversation with Another Person’s Wounded Body Elemental”
by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
1 September 2018

 

I was heading on up the hill; then all of a sudden I got a really sharp pain right here in my head [points to left side of head] … I have never had any pain like that before. And on the astral plane I heard: You be quiet, or I’ll give you a headache!  … Like that! … A very strident voice, and this sharp pain in my head. 

Usually, when other people’s projected energy comes towards me, I treat it just as if it were my own. And so, on the telepathic plane, I said this: Well, hi there! How are you doing? I love you! I do!

And it (what I took to be a body elemental) said a bunch of little, mean things to me, like a little child would do: I’ll hurt you again!  [laughs]  … And so I said: Well, aren’t you something! Aren’t you the cutest little thing! Come on over here and give me a hug!

And so it came over, like that [shows hand moving from lower left to upper left side of head] … And it was a feeling of something kind of crawling on my head. 

And I said: What do you look, like, anyway?  [laughs]

And a little girl’s voice said: Oh! I am a big, hairy spider!   [laughs]

And so I said: Oh, wow! Aren’t you something! Aren’t you the most amazing thing! Come on over here and give me a nice, big hug!  … Because you have to be kind of repetitive, you know?

And a little girl’s voice said: I will not! I am going to scare you!

And so I said: I hear you!  

That is the other thing I say: Either I love you! Come here! Hug me!  …  Or else I say: I hear you! I hear you!

When I said: I hear you! the body elemental (you have read about it in my other blogs, right?) started with a story …

I said: How old are you?

It said: Four years old!

I said: Wow! Aren’t you something! Four years old! Wow!

And it said: I told her that! And then she went away!

And so in my intuitive mind, I thought: Oh, my gosh! There has been a mixup here. Four years old. She was in a temper. She said she was going to give someone a headache, and this person passed on!

So I said: Is that your mom?

And the voice said: No, it’s my grandma! She went away! Why did she go away? … Like that, right? Like a little child. 

So then I got the story. So I said: Well, that’s ok. She loves you anyway. She loves you anyway. You can stay here with me; it’s ok. You’re the most wonderful thing! I love you! … Like that, right? 

And after a while, that energy settled down. That energy is like a memory; a very sharp, very deep pain that happened.

. . . . .

You know, many children believe, at the age before reason … before six years of age … if someone in their family dies, they believe they are responsible. And even after that … even at any age … people sometimes feel they are responsible for someone else’s death.

The experience of loss can be so excruciating that this memory of being responsible for some terrible, painful incident … the death of another person that they love … by being out of temper, or for whatever reason, gets so deeply encapsulated and buried and compressed in the Body of Light, that it is just impossible for it to free up … until we hear it, or we notice, or one of you Ascending ones hears someone else’s … or your own … and notices it. And just loves it, to the point where it can be transformed back to the Light again.

That is one of our wonderful possibilities that are opening up right now. The Light itself is bringing all this forward, so that all our Souls can be healed.

A pretty cool story, do you not think?

God bless you all! Talk to you another time! Bye bye!

Gifts for Nature Spirits! . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 27 January 2015; published on 28 January 2015; transcribed on 3 October 2018

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

A nature spirit story for you! There is an edited Summary after the Video.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Here is a little place, I see, where people have been sitting under a beautiful tree … A live oak tree. And here [shows stumps used as seats on the ground] they have taken a couple of stumps, and made them into seats.

And over here [shows big oak tree branch on the ground] on this long branch of the oak tree … looks like it broke off and fell down, and now it has become quite the bearer of oak leaves once more. So it is living just fine there … which is often the case with these California live oak trees.

And over here, where nobody will bother it … because I forgot my cats eye marbles today … So I looked around, and I asked the nature spirits if it would be ok to put one of the stones from outside, over here [on the ground under the tree] as a present for them.

And they said: Those are our stones now!

So then I saw some nails lying around on the dirt outside. And I know that those nails are very bad for the birds and the animals … that they eat them, and that it can injure them.

And so I said to the nature spirits: Well, how would it be if I were to pick up these nails and take them back, because I would not want them to harm your animals?

And they said: Oh, that would be fine!

So then I had a thought … Someone suggested to me, mind to mind; a young person that I know said: What if you were to take some of those stones, and make a circle for the nature spirits?

And so I asked the nature spirits, and they said: Oh, yes, we would like that!

So after I picked up the nails, I picked the prettiest stones I could, around the area, and this is what I made, as a present for the nature spirits. I hope they like it ok …
