Dear Ones,

Mystics down through the ages have spoken of the Beloved with whom they feel Divine union. Whether these mystics be female or male, when they speak of the Beloved, they term themselves the ‘wife’ of That One. Why is that? That is because they feel themselves to be totally immersed in the Beingness of the Divine.

Rumi, the Sufi whose mystical poetry is well known in the world today, has written many poems about his Beloved. Here is one such poem, in which he speaks of his own Soul that ‘has a perfume of’ his Beloved. In other words, we must know and cherish our own Souls, which are but weak mirrors of our handsome Beloved; it is through knowledge of our Souls that we may come to know God. Here is Rumi’s poem about it …

“I WELL CHERISH THE SOUL”
By Rumi

“I am a painter, a maker of pictures; every moment I shape a beauteous form,
And then in Thy presence I melt them all away.
I call up a hundred phantoms and indue them with a spirit;
When I behold Thy phantom, I cast them in the fire.

“Lo! I will cherish the soul, because it has a perfume of Thee.
Every drop of blood which proceeds from me is saying to Thy dust:
‘I am one colour with Thy love, I am a partner of Thy affection.’
In the house of water and clay this heart is desolate without Thee;
O Beloved, enter the house, or I will leave it.”

Long years ago, I wrote a poem about a vision I had of the Beloved, while I was looking at the sky in a rural setting in Espanola, New Mexico. I sensed, at the time, a feeling of longing for the Beloved, much like that I encountered in the poetry of Rumi …

“BELOVED”
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
from the 1980s

I have seen him lie so still
. . . dreaming on the dew-wet grass

and then again, curled like a wraith,
. . . like mist, across the sleeping river.

and once he danced,
. . . for pure springtime delight
. . . . . . in clouds of yellow butterflies
. . . . . . . . . around a silent desert bush.

and I have seen him warlike
. . . stride over this noonday hill —
. . . . . . homeward to greet me —
. . . . . . . . . sun flamed in his hair!

By night he makes that far-flung
. . . star-spun panorama of the sky
. . . . . . a velvet cloak to clothe him

and even now, in this one frozen instant
. . . — NOW —
. . . . . . he leans to whisper in my ear:

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . “Beloved . . . .”

In those years I wrote another poem about feeling a sense of union with the Beloved. This is a poem I like very much, even today …

“THAT ONE”
by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
1981

 

“That One Who, ages past, lit these stars
. . . in a dark sky

And Who, in time to come,
. . . shall snuff them out again

Who moved those mountains there
. . . up from the cold earth

And stirs, like blue light, across the faces
. . . of the holy congregation

Who shines in sunlight on the morning grass

Whispers to cicadas on the breeze

Runs with the horses in the field

And Who, Vast as He is, and Wonderful,
. . . flows, like a river,
. . . . . . through this warp of time and space

That One
. . . dwells in my heart,
. . . speaks to my soul with every breath I breathe

Day’s light, walks by my side …

Night’s guide, enfolds me.”

THE BALANCE OF THE MYSTIC: SERVICE TO SELF AND SERVICE TO OTHERS

When I think of the mystic Beloved, it is as if I am one with all that is … as if my personal self, my individuality, is merged in the ocean of oneness with The All. In that way it becomes evident to me the suffering of every being in the Universe is my own suffering as well. In the same way, the delight of every being in the Universe is my own delight. The mask of ego falls away; I become like a being wearing every mask of individuality. As well, I am a beingness from which every mask is stripped away. I am that faceless face, that One that is the All.

This merging with the All, standing as it does in endless empathy with every being in the Universe, carries with it the intention of what The Law of One (The Ra Material)” … https://www.lawofone.info/ …  terms ‘Service to Others’, balanced with ‘Service to Self’, under the aegis of the goddess Ma’at, the keeper of the Law of Balance. Why is that? That is because my own self, my own Soul, as Rumi describes, is wife to the mystic Beloved. She is His beloved. Thus I cherish and uplift her, offer her what joys this life may bring, stand with her in awe of God’s love and Light. In the same way I blazon forth a path for other beingness, that they may know and see God’s love and Light and joy through me.

Thus for the mystic, there is a balance of Service to Others with Service to Self. Each of these, we feel, is beloved by the One Beloved. Insofar as we reflect Him, so may we be in relation to self and ‘other’ self.

A CATASTROPHIC PERSONAL CHOICE: MYSTICAL UNION WITH ONE OF THE NON-CHRISTED STAR RACES

Link: “Satan Exulting Over Eve,” by William Blake, 1795, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Satan_Exulting_over_Eve.jpg … public domain … COMMENT: Consider that the Demonic Realm, represented by the winged Satan hovering over the prostrate woman, may equate to the snake that tempted Eve in the Biblical Garden of Eden. I note that snakes are reptiles; thus the snake in the drawing to some degree equates to my description of the Reptilian Star Races that overlight the reptiles of Earth and that also overlight Reptoid human beings. These Reptoid humans are, in an astral sense, Hybrid humans whose social values conflict with the norm. In my blogs, I often describe Reptoids as anti-social personalities. In other blogs I characterize Reptoids as among those ‘obsessed’ or ‘possessed’ by the Demonic Realm. As many antisocial personalities, and many of the humans obsessed or possessed by demons are men, I take it the prostrate female form in the image might as likely be a man as a woman, the point of the image then being that he or she has been ‘bound down’ or enslaved by the Reptilian Star Races (alternately known as Satan, ruler of the Demonic Realm).

. . . . .

There is another, lower form of union that circumvents ego and results in enslavement to a sliver of Godness that worships ‘Service to Self’. That sliver of Godness is well represented by  the Reptilian and Insectian Star Races, which act as devas to overlight the development of the reptile and insect kingdoms of Earth.

In the same way that there are lizards and preying mantises amongst the animals of Earth, there are human beings who choose not the human social values of overlighting Christ consciousness beings of Light, but rather the reptilian and insect social values of the Reptilian and Insectian Star Races. The former I term humanoid humans; the latter I term reptoid and insectoid humans.

It is easy to see that reptoid and insectoid humans find themselves always at war with humanoid humans on both the physical and the astral planes. This warfare cannot but persist because the fundamental social values of these sets of human beings are very different, the one from the other …

I am pleased to be able to offer a visual representation of the difference in values that occurs when a person chooses, for instance, the reptoid set of social values. In essence, that person exists in mystic Union with a member of the Reptilian Star Races who honors as his highest social value Service to Self. The Self, in this instance, is that Reptilian being, and not the reptoid human who serves him. If you click the link you may see this memorable representation of enslavement of a human being to a Reptilian …

The beautiful woman in this image, intuition tells me, is not a woman but a man … a black magicker who has offered complete subservience to the evil-looking, grimacing red being that grasps her in his claws. In order to become adept at the Black Arts, this male sorcerer … depicted as the shapely woman in the image … has let the demon lift his feet right off the Earth. He is no longer a grounded human being. His head is in the astral realms; his thoughts are one with those of his Reptilian overlord. In a trancelike state, he succumbs to a hideous monster that would like no better than to destroy him.

Whether that reptoid human is a man or a woman, the Union with the Reptilian overlord is that of the human as ‘wife’ to the sliver of Godness which dominates the human’s every action. In a theological context, the Reptilian overlord is termed a ‘demon’ or a ‘devil’; though I caution that the Biblical references to these beings do not offer careful distinctions amongst the many super-human members of the non-Christed Star Races overlighting some of the beings on Earth.

How do these Reptilian Star Race members manage to enslave so many human beings? How is it that so many humans here on Earth find themselves in that cold, merciless embrace? The answer, I feel, can be found here …

As humans, we cannot but long to escape from the box of individuality, from the mask of ego, into a greater Union. Some seek this in the pleasures of the flesh; others in a chaste and enduring marriage to another human being; others in mystic Union with the Divine; and some … God help them! … in union with beings such as that depicted in the above image.

The lesson of the above artwork is this, I feel: Choose wisely, that into whose beingness you will merge! Choose good over bad; kindness over cruelty; love over hatred; a balanced life over a life of excess; law abidingness over outlawry; upliftment of humankind over its grinding under the heel of some supernatural jackal, some evil off-world sorcerer, some mind-controlling false prophet; some being bent on your degradation in the eyes of your fellow man so as to stoke its own grim humor.

Choose life over death; Light over Dark; joy over sorrow; love over cruel craft. Choose the greater Wisdom, not the lesser one. In this, your one Life, choose your own highest Good.

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

Stance of the Vatican on Drugs . referral with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 28 July 2021
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California

Dear Ones,

Here is an explanation of the Vatican’s stance on drugs …

Link: “Where the Church Draws the Line on Drugs,” by Zenit, 2001, in Catholic Education … https://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/where-the-church-draws-the-line-on-drugs.html ..

From this I gather the Vatican feels that choosing to use drugs causes us to lose our dignity as a person, our capacity to think and choose as a person. That may be why the Church is against the legalization of drugs, including both soft and hard drugs.

The Church feels the ‘merchants of death’ (which is to say, those who sell drugs) can be circumvented by upholding for those who might otherwise become dependent on drugs the sustaining power of love and the value of life, with the Light of faith to guide us.

These human values can help a person face tribulation, a feeling of aloneness or separation from other people.

Our communities can become involved in drug prevention with family counselling programs to help buttress the cornerstone of family life. Good education and youth groups also help youth to find alternatives to drug use. Our communities can help establish medical and self-help rehab programs as well.

The Vatican also values the role of law enforcement, both local and global, in fighting drug cartels and crime syndicates.

I find myself in alignment with the Vatican’s goals in this regard. I find them to be well thought out and sensible guidelines to life in today’s world.

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

Are Drug Lords Using RF Weapons Against Members of Our Community? by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 27 July 2021
Location: San Fernando Valley, California

Dear Ones,

There are stories in the news about directed, pulsed radiofrequency (RF) energy or possibly microwave weapons allegedly being used by drug lords in Cuba to tamper with the brain waves of CIA operatives there. The result apparently varies from minor symptoms such as vertigo and headache to permanent hearing loss and/or brain injuries known as “Havana Syndrome” …

Link: “Havana Syndrome,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Havana_syndrome ..

According to the Wikipedia article, “While there is no expert consensus on the cause of the symptoms … a co-author of the JAMA study considered microwave weapons to be ‘a main suspect’ for the phenomenon.”

This jibes with my sighting some years ago in Grants, New Mexico, of what seemed to me to be a huge microwave emitter on a bus, and the mental confusion I experienced that night and again at the 3HO Summer Solstice Celebration in Espanola, New Mexico, which seemed to me at the time to be a target of the operations of what may have been drug lords that financed the assembly and operation of the bus  …

There was more in the Los Angeles Times about the Havana Syndrome just yesterday …

Link: “Congress to Assist Brain-Injury Victims of Mysterious ‘Havana Syndrome’,” by Tracy Wilkinson, in Los Angeles Times, 26 July 2021 … https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2021-07-26/congress-to-assist-brain-injury-victims-of-mysterious-havana-syndrome ..

It seems to me possible the odd telepathic milieu I have been experiencing in my backyard after 3 pm here in the San Fernando Valley in recent days may have to do with too much radiofrequency emissions, wi-fi, and microwave ‘garble’ in the air at those times.

Whether that may be intentional, and used by local drug lords to target members of the community who are ‘just say no to drugs’ … such as I … or simply a heretofore unacknowledged symptom of the electronic burden borne by modern society, I cannot say.

Ancillary to targeting of ‘just say no to drugs’ members of our local communities might be a theme of neo-Hindu death cult or black magic practitioners, Jewish Kabbalists who use their psychic talents in an antisocial way, indigenous cults’ voodoo practitioners, or Satanists who may be at war against Hindus who worship along traditional lines, more traditional Jewish faithful, Christians, Sikhs, and Muslims across the globe.

From my own recent research, I note that inexpensive radiofrequency detector devices are readily available online. These can be used to determine whether RF pulses are happening in and around your home.

Then in research on how to incapacitate a vehicular Lo-Jack (in the likelihood drug lords may have hacked into the Lo-Jack databases and might be able to use those data to track and target hits), I found that wire mesh wrapped round a Lo-Jack jams the signal. From that I gather that an intermittent barrier pattern … such as slats in a fence, with openings between the slats, might be one way to confuse and interrupt pulsed radiofrequency signals.

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

“Saint Patrick’s Breastplate”
Translated by Kuno Meyer, 1890, Public Domain
Narrated and Filmed by Alice B. Clagett . 3
CC BY-SA 4.0

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

“I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgement of Doom.

“I arise today
Through the strength of the love of the Cherubim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of the resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In prediction of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

“I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

“I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me:
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak to me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me,
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From every one who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in a multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

“Christ to shield me today,
Against poisoning, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So there come to me abundance of reward.

“Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye of every one who sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.”  Amen

. . . . .

God bless you all,
And keep you safe,
And be with you
Through all your days.

. . . . .

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

Ascension Thoughts on the Parable of the Tares . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 24 July 2021

Dear Ones,

I heard a great Bible story today called the “Parable of the Tares.” The story is about a man who sowed wheat in his field. But while he slept an enemy came and sowed ‘tares’ or weeds among the wheat, then crept off …

Image: “The Parable of the Tares,” by John Everett Millais, 1865, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:John_Everett_Millais_(1829-1896)_-_The_Enemy_Sowing_Tares_(St_Matthew_XIII,_24%E2%80%9325)_-_1925P103_-_Birmingham_Museums_Trust.jpg … public domain

When the servants of the man found out about the ‘tares’ they wanted to pull them up. But the man thought that might injure the good wheat that was growing in the field. Instead, the man asked his servants to let both grow together till the harvest. Then at that time the reapers would pull up the tares first, bundle them, and burn them. The wheat, which would be all that was left in the field, might then be gathered into the man’s barn …

Matthew 13:24-30 (KJV, public domain)

24 “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 “But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 “So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28 “He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 “But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

When I heard the sermon about the Parable of the Tares, the pastor made a very good point that we must stay awake all the time … insofar as we may … so as to prevent the Enemy (which to my way of thinking means Satan and his works) from contaminating or polluting the good fruits of our Christian labors. The pastor explained how easy it is to slip into a state of sleep, even in the daytime. He explained how important it is to be awake and saying our prayers, instead of sleeping through church services.

I also thought of how The Enemy enters our dreams at night, with thoughts we Christians feel to be wholly foreign to us. From that I imagined how important it must be to counter these inimical thought forms and nightmarish dreams with a good prayer on arising every morning. That way, I feel, we may strive to stunt the growth of whatever that stealthy, dark and evil being may sow in our psyches while we dream on, all unaware of his endeavors.

I had some other ideas about this Parable that I would like to mention here. For instance, one might feel the Parable expresses there are both good and evil men in the world, whom God (the householder in the Parable) allows to dwell together on Earth. Then one might interpret that on the Day of Judgment … which many Christians feel will come to pass during the Ascension process … God will winnow the wheat from the tares, so that some people will be cast into the fires of Hell, and others will be gathered into the Holy Congregation that He shelters near Him.

There are Ascensioneers who agree with this idea. They feel … or used to feel, until the year 2012 … that only a portion of human beings would Awaken to Christ Consciousness, to the ‘Fifth Dimension’, during the Ascension process. Back then, they thought that other human beings would go through another long cycle of Earthly experiences before their Souls were ready and eager to go through an Ascension process to take place in the distant future.

Then at about the time of The Shift in 2012, quite a few Ascensioneers began to feel that Earth herself was arising and awakening, and that all the beings on her, within her, or above her, were also inevitably becoming more refined in energy and consciousness … that there would be no exceptions, either through enduring the Ascension process, or through death, to what some Christians call the Tribulation.

This is what the Ascensioneers think of as ‘burning away of the ‘dross’; of the ‘malware’ installed by The Enemy, and which is foreign to our true nature; or as dissolving of the Soul wounding encountered during our Earthly experiences. Everyone on Earth, they felt, was taking part in the Ascension process. Everyone’s energy field was being upgraded from one sort of energy so that it would include a more refined sort of energy. That was because we children of Earth, they felt, could not but follow closely in her footsteps.

Sidebar: Prep Work for the Refiner’s Fire

The fire of refinement of our energy field as we enter the Fifth Dimension might seem a fearful notion, or we might ready ourselves for the experience with a feeling of faith, and of hope in a New Tomorrow.

Whether we experience fear or joy, whether we feel a burning sensation … as is oft mentioned in Christianity as being ‘the woeful fires of Hell’ … or whether we feel blissful upliftment … pictured in the Christian world as standing at the right hand of Christ, near the Throne of God … depends on how we prepare ourselves emotionally for the Ascension process.

The video below offers an example of prep work for a pleasing experience of energetic refinement during Ascension …

………………..

I feel the idea that all human beings will be marching along together, in ‘lock step’, during the Ascension process to be a little misleading, a little facile, considering the theories of Multitemporality and Multidimensionality I and other Ascensioneers have channeled.

Surely on an Earth whose fundaments are free will and the All, in a Universe comprising many alternate timelines, many alternate dimensions, many alternate realities, there must be the longer ‘Ascension ride’ for those whose Souls are eager to acquire greater wisdom through physical experience in the third dimension, and through astral experience in the fourth dimension, while on the way to greater understanding of Christ Consciousness in the fifth dimension … must there not?

Given the theories of Multitemporality and Multidimensionality, there is ample leg room for each of us to experience this grand sweep of the Ascension process … a time-space continuum that suits each of us to a tee. Yet in our own optimum Awareness timeline and dimension, there may be many other seeming human forms whose Awareness timeline and dimension is not our own.

To us, they may seem to be sleepwalking through the Ascension process. It may seem to us that they have ‘missed the boat’. In reality, though, it may be that they are wide awake and ascending, here on Earth, in a space-time continuum that is slightly different from our own.

Yet through God’s mysterious wonders, I feel we may all emerge in the realm of Christ Consciousness at what may seem to our human sensibilities to be exactly the same moment. That is because the Fifth Dimension exists beyond Time and Space, in the Eternal Now. Thus we may anticipate we will all be together, in one grand instant, in the presence of Christ in His great glory.

From my fellow Ascensioneers I hear that, from that Eternal Now, He may teach us to dip into this timeline or that … into this dimension or that … so that we and our fellow Ascensioneers may once more enjoy Earthly life, through His Will, and by His Grace. But in so doing, we might always remember that Eternity from which we descend into the Earth realms, and that Grace on whose wings we flit through the halls of time and space, however briefly.

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

“Saint Patrick’s Breastplate”
Translated by Kuno Meyer, 1890, Public Domain

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

“I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgement of Doom.

“I arise today
Through the strength of the love of the Cherubim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of the resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In prediction of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

“I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

“I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me:
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak to me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me,
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From every one who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in a multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

“Christ to shield me today,
Against poisoning, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So there come to me abundance of reward.

“Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye of every one who sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.”  Amen

. . . . .

That is “Saint Patrick’s Breastplate,” a prayer on arising in the morning. This is a prayer of protection of the old sort. It was often used in Ireland in the early days of Christianity. I hope it will protect you as it does me.

. . . . .

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

Dear Ones,

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

This prayer is “Saint Patrick’s Breastplate.” translated by Kuno Meyer in 1890. I offer it to you today, in your passage through the Ascension, to help during influxes of Incoming Light, for protection against Dark Attacks and what they call ‘smash and grab’ attacks. I think it works wonderfully well …

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

“I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgement of Doom.

“I arise today
Through the strength of the love of the Cherubim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of the resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In prediction of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

“I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

“I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me:

God bless you all, and keep you safe.
