Surviving COVID-19 . referral by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 September 2020

Dear Ones,

“The Sun” has come out with a poignant rendition of one person’s encounter with COVID-19, and most fortunately, their survival through it. I thought it very well written indeed …

Link: “Just This Breath,” by Heather Sellers, in “The Sun: Essays, Memoirs, and True Stories,” June 2020, pp. 14-19 … https://www.thesunmagazine.org/issues/534/just-this-breath

I am not the author of the article, but living here in Los Angeles, where COVID has struck randomly and hard, I sense the certain truth of it.

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

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

BOBCATS AND HUMAN MICROCHIPS: END TIMES OR TIME OF NEW BEGINNING?

Yesterday I was walking a new trail in Santa Clarita, California. When I started out there was not a car in the parking lot but my own. I went along until the track became a maze of trails not on the map, and then turned around and came back. Nearly back at the parking lot, I was about to pass an old oak tree, which led to a sort of box canyon, up which the trail wended its way.

As I got close to the oak tree, I startled a bobcat that had been lounging in the shade. I was so in awe of its handsome form and lithe healthiness that I forgot to make a video until it was nearly (and quickly) out of sight.

Just after that I saw my first and only hiker of the day, a Latin American gentleman about my own age. When I told him about the bobcat, he decided to turn back as, unlike me, he had not brought along his hiking staff.

He must have seen the cross I was wearing round my neck for, as we retraced the short rise that led to the parking lot, he spoke to me about his conviction that we are in the time of Apocalypse, the End Times, in which people of faith must face many signs of catastrophe.

He spoke of the Book of Revelation and of its author John. He mentioned a passage in Revelation 13, about the number 666, the ‘number of the beast’ …

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon …

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

I have done some blogs about the Book of Revelation, but not a blog on Chapter 13. My hiking companion mentioned a concern he had that the number 666 (the ‘number of the beast’ and also the ‘number of a man’) felt to him to be the human microchip implants which he had heard might have been forced upon all people in India, and might be in use elsewhere in the world.

Then he mentioned that President Trump was requesting legislation be enacted to implant chips in all Americans. That was pretty upsetting to me, following as it did upon my amazement at sighting a bobcat, and my surprise at encountering a fellow hiker.

In fact, when I thought about it, the conversation of my fellow hiker was the first I had had with anyone at all, at length and in person, since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Los Angeles at the beginning of March 2020. Swiftly I computed that it had been 6 months since I had had a lengthy conversation with anyone at all, in person and within a distance where I could hear their voice on the physical plane.

I realized that people all across the globe are experiencing a kind of inward turning, a lack of social contact, that is causing our minds to come up with novel and often ‘out there’ explanations to encompass and express the novel and hence fear-provoking health concerns that have come upon all the countries of Earth. I did not know what to think about this theory of the sign of the beast and the human microchips.

As we reached the parking lot, though, we both agreed that in these times faith is of the utmost importance; that through faith we can overcome every obstacle of these times, no matter how insurmountable that obstacle may seem. We agreed too that those who align with Christ Consciousness will rise above the troubles of life on Earth, and that now of all times is the time in which this may best be happening to each of us.

The explanation that my hiking companion had about the ‘number of the beast’, President Trump, and human microchip implantation concerned me enough that today I took a look online about it. I was greatly relieved to find that most likely the CHIP associated with President Trump is the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), whose funding is in question.

That funding for CHIP is in question is an issue to which Congress must, I feel, rise. What could be more important to this country than the welfare of our children? It is, I guess, just as important as avoiding legislation to force Americans to have microchip implants. Both are important issues, I feel.

Because people globally are, I feel, carrying a greater than usual burden of anxiety over the state of the world right not, it is possible we may leap to unusual decisions about a number of legislative issues. That is a danger that Americans face right now: How to make wise decisions even though we are under a lot of stress because of the pandemic.

Right now I feel the thing for our legislatures … whether national, state, county or city … to do might be to make legislative decisions that decrease the burden of stress on all Americans. That lessening of the national burden of stress will help us to turn our visions of Apocalypse and End Times into the joyful visions of our Lightworker community: visions of a Second Coming of Christ Consciousness for all those who wish to embrace it; visions of a Time of New Beginning, and of New Life on New Earth for each of us, the New Humans.

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

REVELATION 13 (KJV, Public Domain)

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

How Many Californians Are COVID-Safe? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says …

Image: “Youth Soccer in Small Town USA,” by Derek Jensen, 2005, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Youth-soccer-indiana.jpg … public domain

Written and published on 1 September 2020 by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

How many people here in California are COVID-safe? The figure is changing rapidly, and improving every day.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS ARE COVID-SAFE TODAY?

As of today, there have been 712,276 tested cases of COVID-19 in California, according to the Los Angeles Times. Only those people are being tested who exhibit COVID symptoms.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently holds that many more people … maybe even 40 percent of all the people in the United States who get COVID … are asymptomatic.

If 712,276 people so far are symptomatic and tested, and these are 60% of the people in California who have gotten COVID, then the total number who have had COVID in California would be 712,276 (symptomatic) divided by .6 = 1,187,127 people (symptomatic or asymptomatic).

Of these, 13,018 have died. Thus the total number of people who are now COVID-safe in California is 1,187,127 people who have had COVID, less 13,018 COVID deaths (as of today, according to the Los Angeles Times). That would be about 1,174,109 people … over a million … who are COVID-safe in California as of today.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS WILL BE COVID-SAFE IN TIME?

The population of California is 39.5 million. If deaths from COVID continue at the same rate as before, and the COVID vaccine is not made available, as hoped, this fall, then as the pandemic runs its course, how many California will end up COVID-safe? Here are my figures …

x / 39.5 million people in California = 1,174,109 COVID-safe people in California today / 1,187,127 Californians who have had COVID

x = (1,174,109 / 1,187,127) x 39.5 million

x = 39,066,844 Californians who will be COVID-safe after the pandemic ends.

COVID-19: Two Possible Timelines for End of Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 12 July 2020; published on 13 July 2020

  • FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE
  • SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

Dear Ones,

Here are two possible timelines for the end of the COVID-19 pandemic …

FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE

I read in a BBC article that a vaccine for COVID-19 is expected to become available in mid-2021. That would be about a year and a half after the beginning of the pandemic ….

Link: “Coronavirus Vaccine: When Will We Have One? by James Gallagher, at BBC News, 8 July 2020 … https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51665497 ..

If that were to prove true, and if everyone were to be vaccinated next year, then people will not be running into active virus as much in the people they meet.

For those who have had the virus, and have built up their immunity, that would be good, as their immune systems would not need to fight off reinfection through exposure to other people’s active viruses while working or shopping.

It seems to me that getting flu this winter (in 2020) might make it harder for the body to keep up a strong COVID immune response, simply because it might be ‘fighting on two fronts’ at once. But if there is a vaccine available mid-2021, then that year’s winter flu season would likely offer less of a challenge to COVID-susceptible people.

SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

The deadly Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 lasted 2 years and 2 months; I think that might be a timeline to plan for should there be no viable vaccine. That would put surcease at April or May 2022; quite some while away, but, I feel, well worth keeping in mind.

It might not seem so, but there will be an end to the pandemic one day. That is the history of pandemics down through time.

God bless you all and keep you safe. May you have plenty to eat, and a good roof over your head, and may each day present you with a new joy in His great Creation.

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

COVID-19 and the USA: Is the Death Count Higher or Lower Than Expected? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Given the press on the state of COVID-19 in California since the Fourth of July, I checked whether the greater picture for the pandemic in California, and in the United States overall, is grim or reasonable. Here is what I found out …

There is a question whether deaths due to COVID-19 are being misclassified on the high side in the United States currently, similar to the issue they were being misclassified on the low side in March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are aware of this issue, but cannot yet quantitate it, as there are state-by-state issues regarding standardization of statistical reporting.

Thus it seems reasonable to look at overall deaths in the United States overall, since the beginning of the pandemic in February 2020, and also state-by-state. That way we can ascertain whether overall deaths (including COVID-19, flu, pneumonia, and every other cause of death) are higher or lower than expected.

I turned to the CDC for the data. They say deaths in the United States, from whatever causes, are 4 percent greater than expected deaths for the period from 1 February to 4 July 2020. Ball-parking that, we might reasonably assume deaths from COVID-19 to have contributed most of that excess. That is the approach to the data taken as a given by the press and by all levels of  government in the United States, from city government, to state government, to government at the national level.

On the other hand, it could be that there is a range of numbers within which expected deaths are tallied, Taking that range into account, it is possible, from a multiple year perspective, that COVID-19 may not have contributed at all to this year’s excess deaths. It could be we are on the far end of the expectable range of deaths in 2020, and in the coming years there will be less deaths than expectable. In other words, excess expectable deaths this year might not be due to COVID-19 at all. That is the contrarian approach to the data.

From the stance of personal health and safety, it might be good to know which states have the highest numbers of deaths greater than expected since February of this year. We could take a look at deaths due to COVID or whatever other causes; that would be a figure beyond debate.

I see from the below chart that some states have had a notably higher percent of expected deaths than the United States in general, during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. These are Arizona (108%), Colorado (109%), District of Columbia (115%), Illinois (115%), Louisiana (107%), Maryland (116%), Massachusetts (123%), Michigan (112%), Minnesota (105%),  New Jersey (142%), New York (124%), New York City (203%), and Rhode Island (106%).

From this list the standouts in terms of having deaths greater than expected, from highest to lowest, are New York City (203%), New Jersey (142%), New York (124%), Massachusetts (123%), Maryland (116%), District of Columbia (115%), Illinois (115%), and Michigan (112%).

This table has the data in it …

Face Masks Cause COVID-like Symptoms . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 21 June 2020

  • I FOUND PAPER MASKS CAUSED ME TO COUGH SPORADICALLY

Dear Ones,

As people in Los Angeles are required to wear face masks in public because of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been testing various masks while out and about town, and have found that I am experiencing COVID-like symptoms while wearing a face mask and shortly thereafter.

I FOUND PAPER MASKS CAUSED ME TO COUGH SPORADICALLY

In my own experience, I found when I wear the type of paper mask that is rectangular with folds I would cough sporadically. This I find an embarrassment when in a store, and also a concern, as a cough can result in expulsion from a store through the owners’ fear that I might have COVID.

Here is the type of mask I found caused me to cough sporadically when I wore it …

Image: Blue, rectangular, horizontally folded paper face mask … https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61UYv03DuAL._AC_SL1200_.jpg

I refer here to the style of paper mask and not the specific brand of mask in the image, as I have only tested one brand so far.

I FOUND COTTON FABRIC FACE MASKS CAUSED MY LUNGS TO PRODUCE PHLEGM (MUCUS)

I have more to report regarding the cotton fabric face masks sold online. I have tried two kinds so far, each with two layers of fabric; one had horizontal pleats and the other did not …

Images of cotton fabric face masks … https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61zt1-WgSbL._SL1200_.jpg  … and …  https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81uF0e2Oa7L._AC_SL1500_.jpg ..

For me, these did not cause coughing, but they did cause production of thick, clear phlegm (mucus) that came up my windpipe and which I then needed to swallow. The phlegm production would start shortly after I donned the fabric masks, and would continue for some while after I took the fabric masks off.

I realize experiencing these symptoms while wearing paper or cloth masks, or for a while after taking them off, may cause concerns that the symptoms are caused by the coronavirus. In my case, though, I can vouch for the fact that both the coughing and the production of clear phlegm apparently have to do with wearing the masks.

I hope my experience in this regard will be reassuring to others. I feel one way to ascertain the cause might be to notice whether the symptoms only occur during and shortly after mask use. That is just my hunch; of course the thing to do, to be on the safe side regarding COVID-like symptoms is to seek competent medical advice.

I could conjecture that the paper masks might have tiny bits of paper in them that might be inhaled into the windpipe and might cause a tickle that triggers a cough. I might also guess that the effort of breathing through a fabric mask might make heat build up in the lungs, causing the phlegm normally within them to become more liquid and consequently to flow upward more freely. These, though, would be but conjecture, and hardly worth the telling.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on a diet that may help alleviate COVID-like symptoms. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

For those of you that develop COVID-19 symptoms or are diagnosed positive for the coronavirus and have the symptoms, I have a hint that may help diminish the harshness of the symptoms.

Here Were My COVID-Like Symptoms

On 4 March 2020 I began to develop physical symptoms I had never experienced before. At first I felt a thrumming in my gastrointestinal tract, and then a thrumming in other parts of my body. It felt as if my gut brain had sensed something awful in the air, and that my body was somehow concocting remedies for a threat it sensed … whether within my body, or merely in the air, I could not tell.

A day or so thereafter I felt a few sharp pinprick aches randomly here and there in my body. The next day I felt chills coursing through my body, but I had no fever.

In the ensuing days, I felt very great fatigue, such that all I wanted to do was sleep for days. There was a half day of gastrointestinal tract uneasiness. Then whatever it was settled as a moderate cold in the bronchial tubes and lungs, producing lots of mucus or phlegm.

A few days later I found I could get out of bed and walk a few steps without very great fatigue. After that each day was better. I was on the mend. Little by little, I began walking in the neighborhood. Then I went on to moderate mountain hiking.

Then I had a symptom that really worried me: I fell asleep one night, and then woke up to my upper airway popping closed, slightly stuck together with mucus, it seemed. Then as I inhaled it popped open. As to my recollection I had never had such a symptom before, I thought I had best try to find out what was up with that.

What Doctors in the United States Are Calling Symptoms Such as Those I Had

I stopped by one of the local hospitals, and they said my symptoms did not fit their description of COVID-19. They thought I might have symptoms of anxiety. They said they were getting lots of cases of anxious people coming to the hospital … people who thought they had COVID-19 but, they said, did not have it. So they sent me on home.

On the other side of the coin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a great many people in the United States have died this year of causes not diagnosed as COVID-19. Of the 99,000 ‘excess deaths’ that the CDC predicts for 2020, about 32,300 deaths are not diagnosed as COVID-19 …

Link: “COVID-19 Tidbits: ‘General Pandemonium’ Deaths for the United States?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 22 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ihj ..

It seems to me that people with mild COVID-19 symptoms may be going to the doctor or to the hospital, and then diagnosed as anxious, then going home and dying at home of respiratory failure due to COVID. I feel this theory is worth investigation, and hope the hospitals here in the United States will consider it.

A Diet That Helped Alleviate My COVID-Like Symptoms

For those for whom Western medicine has no remedy, I have this to offer: During the course of my March 2020 illness, I found that eating certain foods caused an immediate adverse reaction. It was as if, in the space of a few minutes, alarm bells were ringing all over my body. I would go from feeling not too good, but manageable symptoms, to desperate physical distress in but a moment.

For me, some of the foods that caused this adverse reaction were mucus-forming foods such as wheat flour or dairy; animal protein (fish, chicken, or red meat); solid foods of any kind; refined sugars; alcohol; and foods with chemicals in them.

For me, at first I switched to small amounts of water daily, and that alone. Then a little later, what I could eat was a small amount of broth from boiled or steamed vegetables. Then after a week or so, I could eat a tablespoon or so of watered down bean or lentil soup, with tender, well cooked vegetables mixed in. Days later, I could eat half a cup of the soup.

Thus through very careful diet I was able to alleviate the symptoms of the COVID-like illness I had.

How My Health Is, Three Months After Onset of COVID-Like Symptoms

Today, more than three months after onset of COVID-like symptoms, my diet is more like what used to be normal for me. But I find I want to eat much less food, and I still prefer to avoid sweets, wheat flour, and dairy products.

My physical endurance is back to normal. I am masked but out and about Los Angeles and the surrounding mountains daily.

Thoughts on Gaining Immunity From a COVID-Like Virus

I have slightly more mucus or phlegm production by the lungs and bronchial tubes than is normal. My feeling is that this may be a good thing; I may still be encountering coronavirus in the air, here in Los Angeles, but I may have developed immunity to the virus, and the mucus or phlegm from the lungs may be proof that my body is now well able to quell the virus.

Could Diet Be the Cause of Very Different COVID Impact, Country to Country?

I have been following the World Health Organization’s daily situation reports on COVID …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” by the World Health Organization … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I could not but be amazed at the differences in the numbers of cases and deaths from COVID from nation to nation. It occurs to me that the diet of the peoples of some nations may promote alleviation of COVID-like symptoms. Especially I wonder if the diet of the peoples of some nations may alleviate mucus or phlegm production during pneumonia, and thus help prevent COVID deaths in those countries?

Conclusion

I know we here in the West think less of diet as medicine than do the peoples of the developing countries of the world. That may be because we have universal health care and the benefits of Western medicine.

In the case of COVID-like symptoms, it might be helpful for the people of the United States to turn to diet as medicine. Maybe we could take a look at the diet of people in countries that have been less affected by COVID than has been the United States.

As well, I hope my explanation of a diet that worked for me will be of interest and even maybe of help to those who have coronavirus-like symptoms in the coming year.

I hope everyone will be able to avoid the worst of the COVID-like symptoms through whatever diet works for them, through rest if fatigue sets in, and through God’s graceful kindness in answer to our prayers.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a second video to do with the Triple Eclipse Passage of Summer Solstice 2020. Topics include multitemporality, multidimensionality, and the coronavirus pandemic. 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.

Well, here we are in the Triple Eclipse Passage or ‘Passageway’ … or sometimes it is called a ‘Window’ … to do with Summer Solstice 2020 and two other eclipses. It is just very dramatic. The Light switches and changes as timelines are merged.

Introduction

I have been feeling a little like I am a young chicken molting and changing to larger feathers. And my sleep patterns are very unusual. Maybe some of you who are Lightworkers and healers and so forth will identify with that. And others of you will probably have great tales to tell as time goes on.

I have been putting off talking to you about the multitemporal and multidimensional notion that Lightworkers and healers and channelers and others sometimes have regarding current events. It is because the events are current that I am likely to run into a ‘sticky wicket’. I will try to be brief, and for those of you that are versed in multitemporality and multidimensionality, I hope this will be sufficient.

COVID Crisis from the Stance of the Mass Media

As you may know, the nation and the world face what is termed in the mass media the ‘COVID crisis’, the coronavirus pandemic. Almost unanimously, in the news, this is viewed as a great catastrophe to which we as humankind must rise, which we must face with courage and faith; and we praise those in the community that assist, at risk to their own health, in healing others.

COVID as a Chance to Switch from Negative to Positive Dimensions

That is true, in a way. But there is another way of looking at it too, for those that like that other way better. I, for instance, see, all around me in Los Angeles, people on very different timelines and in very different dimensions from my own.

There are people experiencing fear and anger, which are hellworld scenarios; people extremely anxious over property and health. The extent of their negative feelings determines the worlds in which they find themselves … whether hellworlds or purgatory worlds … that depends on the density of the negative emotions.

We have, as aforementioned, other people who are experiencing faith and hope, and the desire to be of selfless service to humankind. Those people are offering to the people experiencing the other kinds of emotions, a chance to suddenly switch dimensions from negative to positive.

So those people who are ill, or fearful of being ill, have a chance to meet these other people who turn them … maybe for the first time in their lives … from fear and anger and anxiety and all those things, to the notions of faith, hope, charity, joy, and abundance. It is amazing!

There is an opportunity, right now, to choose the negative dimensions … the hellworlds or purgatory worlds … or to choose closer to the heaven worlds, or higher: the fifth dimension, the sixth dimension … on up to the twelfth dimension … or higher still, to the 72nd dimension positive.

Chances for Lightworkers to Transform Dimensions and Timelines through the Incoming Light

There is a great opportunity, here on Earth, from the stance of the Lightworker who believes in multidimensionality and multitemporality. It is very weird: I will be driving down the street, and I will be encountering waves of energy: temporal waves and dimensional waves that keep stirring and changing, to the extent where I need to stop, nap for five minutes, and suddenly recalibrate to whatever timeline and dimension exists at that locus in space … and then we can change up to the higher dimensions, or we can find a spot with the higher dimensions and the higher timelines; some place, for instance, where people have been meditating on their heart energy, or singing God’s praises with their heart energy.

That kind of a place, here in Los Angeles, creates an oasis of Christ consciousness through which … as I spoke of in yesterday’s video … can funnel, in a vortical motion, energy of Christ consciousness and Buddhic consciousness from the Galactic Center down to Earth, and through Earth, so that the people can experience, perhaps for the first time, perhaps after any number of times, Christed and Buddhic consciousness. It is really a rare time on Earth.

On Death from COVID-19, Viewed as Incarnational Choice or Awareness Timeline Changeup

Then there are quite a few people, according to the mass media, who have chosen to pass on at this time, during the COVID crisis. From the stance of a Lightworker, from my own stance, I feel that these people’s Souls have opted for an incarnation that teaches the lessons of Soul evolution, but perhaps without the incarnation dealing with the COVID crisis.

So those people who have chosen to pass on are looking forward to Soul lessons in a different context, in a different incarnation. It is all working out according to the Divine plan, and according to the free will hopes of the eternal Soul of each human being on Earth.

From the stance of a Lightworker, I feel that the Souls of many people here on Earth have chosen to place their Awareness on a different timeline. That decision to exist on perhaps a speeded up, or perhaps a slowed down timeline, has apparently resulted in many people dropping physical form in this timeline.

Those people still exist. They are still eternal Souls in another Awareness timeline. So this is a time of great change and great choice in that regard.

Lightworker View: Caleidoscopic Timeline Merges

With regard to my own self as a Lightworker I clairly see and hear, passing before me on the astral plane, all kinds of alternate timelines. These timelines are changing up, to higher timelines.

All kinds of thoughts and emotions that existed in non-chosen timelines or in chosen timelines in the recent past are blending upwards into the higher Light, so that those thoughts and those emotions will no longer pull my body of Light into negativity in that regard.

That is what I feel. The body of Light itself is becoming far more radiant because of the Light that is coming in, through this Triple Eclipse Passage.

On Remembering Our Soul Choices Regarding These Troubled Times

There is one other thing to do with the people that feel negative or fearful or anxious or angry regarding the current events. The thought I have is that people feel they have been dragged into these current circumstances without their choice, and that they must burden themselves with living through what is about to unfold in this timeline and this dimension in which they find themselves.

Our root and our beingness and our becomingness have to do with the reflection that we are of the Divine nature of God. Each human hologram is a separate hologram created by God in alignment with the Soul’s purpose, which, in the best-case scenario, is in alignment with the Will of God, the Heart of God, and the Mind of God. So I feel.  ccc

The truth of the issue, for people who are reluctant to go through the current unfolding mass media scenario, I feel to be that their eternal Souls chose this timeline in which they find themselves so that the vast choices of this moment would be available to them: the choices of positive mind and heart and Soul … the choices of aligning with Divine intent; or the choices of the media, which have to do with lack of free will, and power over, and poverty in the world, and so on.

So the Soul chose, but the human mind and heart and will do not remember, quite yet, that there was a free will choice to experience these events … to have a choice to meditate; to change the diet and make it more pure; to go for walks; to be with family and to strengthen those bonds with family; and to find creative ways to overcome the issue of lack of employment; to help each other out.

These were choices that the Soul made for a good reason, and that reason is this:  Movement to higher density is not going to occur until these things take place.

It is amazing, really, that so many Souls have made that choice, and so many people do not remember their Soul making it!

Conclusion

We have so many things going on at the same time, at this time. We have the people that are turning from despair and sadness, grief and anger and anxiety, to the experiences of positive emotions and positive thoughts, often aided by other human beings who help to pull them up from the depths of despair and from the negative emotions. Those people are learning to move from the negative worlds … from the negative dimensions … to the positive dimensions. That is one thing.

Then there are the people that are capable of ‘multidiming’ and ‘multitiming’. They are capable of multidimensional and multitemporal surfing. Those people have amazing opportunities today, as they move from place to place (or even sitting in one place during meditation) of making changes in their own body of Light, so that it becomes more perfect … so that their experience of multidimensionality and multitemporality is more uplifted in all regards; so that their choices are more closely aligned with the Infinite.

The people who make those choices are doing so while staying in physical form now, during this time. They are staying in the current Awareness timeline, or in another Awareness timeline that involves the same COVID crisis.

Then there are the people that decided to opt out; they do not like the COVID crisis, and they are moving on, to new incarnation.

And there may be many other things happening at this time, that I have not quite figured out right now.

It is as if all humankind is that young chicken that is molting its feathers and changing. The pinfeathers are coming in, and it is going to have large feathers with which it can fly, pretty soon. That is how I see it: We are all molting and changing and becoming quite glorious.

This is a Lightworker signing off. I hope no one takes offense at my ideas about the COVID crisis. I hope you will, each an every one, find your way free, and find your way through, and find yourself in the highest and greatest and most beautiful of New Realities here on Earth.

God bless you all and keep you safe.

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

The George Floyd ‘Flashpoint’ and Scapegoating of Police in America . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 4 June 2020

  • COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”
  • TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

Dear Ones,

COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”

I wonder if when George Floyd so poignantly said “I can’t breathe” and then passed on, whether that sent a message to us that face masks make it hard to breathe … that COVID also, they say, makes it hard to breathe … and somehow these two, the face masks and the COVID symptoms … are what are being protested, both at the same time, along with undue force by the policeman.

It seems almost as if the suffocation of George Floyd was the acting out in physical reality of our concerns about the pandemic, the concrete symbol of our fears. And now, after the ‘flashpoint’ event that occurred, it is almost as if the police are being pilloried as scapegoats … that our fears for our well-being have morphed into anger at them.

In recent weeks I have been doing an easy yoga set in addition to walking (which I love), and found these help quite a bit to divert my heart from the dramas so much in the news.

TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

It seems likely to me that the events unfolding in the social arena have to do with the high energies of the Triple Eclipse Passage now underway …

Link: “Incoming Light! Triple Eclipse Passage,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 4 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iuS ..

That passage heralds the New. Transforming to the New always requires courage, and overcoming one’s own desire to remain the same. Fear and anger do arise in our hearts, and we must counter these with positive emotions and right action in the world. That way we can become more like Christ, more like the Buddha, and more like Lord Krishna in our hearts and in the living of our lives.

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

Community Alert: Could Wearing Face Masks Be Partly to Blame for the Rioting and Looting? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 June 2020

Dear Ones,

Just now I was reading the Mayo Clinic explanation about the efficacy of wearing face masks in public, and I have a few notions about it. I read between the lines that the cloth masks do not prevent us from breathing germs when we inhale in public, I guess because the cloth fabric is porous.

Nobody has mentioned the psychological effect of wearing masks. People get cues about the good intentions of other people by observing their facial expressions, I feel. When I go to the store and see masked people all around I get an unfriendly feeling because of the masks.

It feels to me like health officials mandate face masks as a way of saying the virus is ‘under control’. The masks are like the ‘magic whistle’ to allay our health concerns. But instead of helping, the face mask regulation is causing me to feel estranged from my fellow shoppers and neighbors in the community.

It could be that the ‘masked marauder’ look is causing people to feel fearful, and that the rioting and looting are a reaction to that fear … As they say, some may choose ‘fight’ rather than ‘flight’ in a scary situation. Getting down to the line, I feel it could be that the mandate about face masks is partly to blame for the rioting and looting in LA.

How do you feel about it? Are the pros of wearing face masks in public when we are not ill greater than the cons?

Here is the Mayo Clinic face mask page where I ‘read between the lines’ about the effectiveness of various sorts of masks …

Link: “COVID-19: How Much Protection Do Face Masks Offer?” by Mayo Clinic Staff …  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-mask/art-20485449 ..

As I read the Mayo Clinic article, the types of masks that are thought to offer protection from droplet aspiration are surgical and N95 masks. While I am not a medical doctor, my profession at UCLA (from which I am retired) was medical editor for some years, which accounts for my being able to read what is left unsaid in the Mayo publication.

What they seem not to be saying is that the cloth masks are effective. Instead, they say that the surgical and N95 masks are effective. I feel this to be misleading, as it causes intelligent people to think one way, when in fact things are another way.

In addition there is the issue of health care officials finding out that the pandemic had spread here in the United States while people were asymptomatic. What the masks do is stop the spread of infectious particles or droplets in the air. But if infectious people were asymptomatic, that would mean they were not coughing or sneezing. In that case they were not spreading infectious particles or droplets in the air, so how might wearing masks have prevented this early asymptomatic viral spreading?

In fact, what was the manner of infection? Was it in the breathed out air, or perhaps through touch?

Then there is the issue of the face masks with the valves that open when the person wearing them breathes out. Those types of face masks would not prevent an infected person wearing the mask from infecting nearby people.

I am left with the thought that surgical face masks might be very helpful when infected people are coughing or sneezing, as these types of face masks prevent spread of infectious particles or droplets in the air. But according to the Mayo Clinic report, not enough of these are being produced to pass out to the general population; instead they are being reserved for health care workers and essential personnel.

Mayo Clinic offers that the general public may wear cloth masks; and the Mayor of Los Angeles then mandated that we Angelenos must do so. That is considerable expense and discomfort to us, which might yet be a sensible consideration if there were a peer-reviewed article showing that fabric masks are helpful in preventing the spread of the virus. Until we have such research, I feel the Mayor of Los Angeles ought to revoke his mandate that we must always wear cloth masks in public.

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

Angel of Death Has Left Los Angeles . a vision by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

ALICE’S VISION: ANGEL OF DEATH HAS LEFT LOS ANGELES

On Monday, 29 March 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown (the Mayor’s stay at home order here in Los Angeles) I went to Office Depot in the San Fernando Valley in the late afternoon. I was standing in the parking lot, next to my car, observing the few people around me, so as to judge whether it would be safe to go into the store.

To my amazement, in my astral vision, I could see that the Angel of Death had passed by, and left this place. On the astral airs, I had a retrospective view of a dark form … not menacing, but neutral in aspect … a dignified, stern but comely being about 20 feet long, clothed in a black robe, flying off in the air at an altitude a little higher than the buildings there. Intuition whispered that this being compassionately dispensed what ill tidings he bore hither and yon, over the face of our beloved planet. The ‘feel’ of the vision was a little like this …

There were a few people in the parking lot; they looked healthy, and wore no face masks. In the store, the music was light and upbeat, and the young store clerks looked hopeful and healthy. From this I gathered that the worst was behind us.

FLIGHT PATH OF THE ANGEL OF DEATH

I wondered where that Angel of Death was headed next, so I checked the map about it. It looks like the Angel was heading off towards Antartica, with a flight trajectory passing a little east of New Zealand, through the Pacific Ocean …

Drawing: “Trajectory of Angel of Death on 29 March 2020,” by Alice B. Clagett, 15 May 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: Map of China, Australia, New Zealand, North America, South America, and Antarctica. There is a red star by the Office Depot I visited in the the San Fernando Valley, California. From that star is drawn a purple line passing through the Pacific Ocean east of New Zealand, and intersecting Antarctica. The line is labeled “Flight Path of the Angel of Death.”

TIMELINE JUMPING OR SURFING: TIME SLIPPAGE IN VISIONS

Over the years I have found that there is some ‘time slippage’ in visions; they may be a little before or after the rolling out of the hologram before my physical eyes. As well, I often find that there is ‘time slippage’ in the mass media. For instance, I had a prophetic vision to do with some cloud readings on 12 February 2020 …

Link: “Early February 2020: Omens in the Sky,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 12 February 2020; published on 1 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-hS7 ..

But it was not till 19 March 2020 that the governor of California issued the safer at home order.

Clearly, the vision I had of the Angel of Death passing by was also before the fact. The vision took place on 29 March 2020 and the tally of those passing on of COVID-19 in Los Angeles continues to be on the high side.

Sometimes they say that the perception of the mass media lags the unfolding epic of life on Earth. Of course, it takes some time after an event for it to be reported on the news … but the question is, how much time does it take? Is it a matter of hours, or days, or years? Could it be sometimes the one, and sometimes the other?

From the stance of multitemporality, on the other hand, could it be that the forward looking visions of a prophet have to do with timeline jumping or timeline surfing? That would be another way of looking at the fact that prophets speak about things that are about to unfold.

DISJUNCT BETWEEN WHAT I SEE IN MY COMMUNITY AND THE COVID-19 ONLINE TALLIES

The odd thing is, it seems as if what I see … my personal experience of life in my community … does not match what I see in the COVID-19 statistics.

Waves of Fear Stirred Up by Mass Media

To me there seems to be a big disjunct going on; it feels to me like the mass media are revving up people’s fears about getting ill and passing on. As an empath, I can feel waves of fear coursing through the noosphere at night, when people might be expected to watch the news channels.

Are Not Blessings All Around Us?

Is there reason to be fearful? Or are there blessings in store for us, here in California? Could it be that a great blessing is unfolding here on Earth, as the Incoming Light inspires us to new spiritual heights during Summer Solstice 2020?

I feel the answer is the latter. I find that, if I center my Awareness on my own two feet, on the patch of Earth on which I am standing, then look through my own eyes at the scene unfolding around me, then all is well. I find peace and tranquility everywhere. My world is full of blessings.

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

Why the Coronavirus Pandemic? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is being written at what is currently thought to be the day before the peak of the Coronavirus epidemic in Los Angeles (although we are not certain whether there may be another wave later on).

WHY THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?

The question is: Why the coronavirus pandemic? I have three possible answers …

Did Our Martian Bacterial Colonists Bioengineer COVID-19 to Counter the Threat of HIV / AIDS?

It could be that the Martian bacterial colonists of our colon came up with the virus as a way to address the threat that the HIV / AIDS virus poses to the viability of humankind …

Link: “Did Martian Bacteria Bioengineer All Life on Earth (Including Us)?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 3 December 2016; revised on 9 July 2017 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-6uD ..

Link: “On Asking Our Martian Bacterial Colonists to Help Heal Disease,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 25 January 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8gZ ..

Might COVID-19 Strengthen Our Immune Systems Against an As-Yet-Unknown Health Threat? 

It may also be that God provided this virus to build up our immune systems against another health threat not yet known to us on this timeline.

Might COVID-19 Be a Download of Light to Heal the Damage Done by Cosmic Rays to Our DNA During the Recent Extended Solar Minimum?

This is the explanation that makes the most sense to me, as it is the most positive: I feel that the symptoms labeled COVID-19 are, in actuality, downloads of Light to do with the initiation of Solar Cycle 25 in December 2019?

Link: “Solar Cycle 25,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle_25 ..

Earth’s atmosphere in the past few years has been chock full of cosmic rays because of the ever-decreasing solar activity since early 2014. That is nearly 6 years of greater and greater impact of cosmic rays on our DNA …

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Number Progression,” by NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_cycle_24_sunspot_number_progression_and_prediction.gif … public domain

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Number Progression,” by NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_cycle_24_sunspot_number_progression_and_prediction.gif … public domain

Cosmic rays can randomly alter our DNA, and not always for the better. Right now, at the cusp of the change from Solar Cycle 24 to the new Solar Cycle 25, our Ascension Teams may see the need for extensive repairs to our human DNA. In addition, new DNA is being activated because of the faster pulsating Light available in this new cycle of the Ascension process.

It seems to me that the health effects we are experiencing have to do with repairs and upgrades of our DNA as the new Solar Cycle begins. If we accept these downloads of Light in a positive way, with feelings of faith and hope in the future, then we will be able to go through the changeups with grace and ease. Along those lines, I heard just the other day that positive emotions help bolster the immune system …

Video: “DR BRUCE LIPTON – CORONAVIRUS, EPIGENETICS & IMMUNE SYSTEM – MOST DANGEROUS PART OF COVID-19 IS FEAR,” by London Real, 10 April 2020 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=242&v=nkQqxkf6heA&feature=emb_logo ..

I realize my understanding of COVID-19 flies in the face of accepted health understanding, but after all, is that not what Lightworkers do? We see Light where others may see Dark. We see God’s great Will at work in creation, where others may see our human limitations. We see the smiling face of humankind, where others may see masked automatons.

This is a time of New Beginning, and not the advent of Apocalypse. The coronavirus pandemic has taught people all over Earth the importance of community, of family, of working at home with our young children, the importance of healthy diet and of outdoor exercise, the saving grace of faith in God, the helpfulness of yoga and meditation, the unhealthful aspects of life in very large cities. Who would have thought such changes in human values might take place in such a short time?

Change can be fearful, or we can rise to the challenge. Because of the pandemic, we have a chance to take a good look at the values dear to us, at the lifestyle we choose to live, so that we may walk together into a New Tomorrow.

TURMERIC TO PURIFY THE BLOOD?

I wonder if the foods said in India to purify the blood might be helpful in getting through COVID-19? In India, turmeric is used in cooking quite a bit; they feel it cleanses the blood. Does the COVID-19 virus float around in the blood? If so, maybe turmeric would help get rid of it? I note there is quite a bit of turmeric in mustard, for instance.

I looked this up today in the book ..

Citation: “Foods for Health and Healing: Remedies and Recipes,” based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, edited by Gurubanda Singh Khalsa and Parmatma Singh Khalsa for the Kundalini Research Institute,, published by Spiritual Community and K.R.I. Publications, 1983 … See: “Chapter 10: Body Systems and Their Ailments,” the subsection: The Blood

I see there were quite a few more recommended blood purifiers there, including baked apple and cottage cheese, which sounds pretty tasty to me.

I remember this book fondly because I was Editorial Assistant for it, under my then spiritual name Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa. I still keep a copy handy on my cookbook shelf in the kitchen.

THREE-MINUTE MEDITATION TO ACHIEVE A COMPLETELY TRANQUIL MIND

I also thought of this meditation, because I, as well as many of my fellow empaths, are very sensitive to the waves of fear that have, in recent weeks, swept across Earth during the COVID-19 pandemic …

Link: “Meditation to Tranquilize the Mind,” originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on 28 February 1979, at Healthy, Happy Holy Organization … https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/health-and-healing/meditation-tranquilize-mind ..

This is one of the most effective meditations I know of to tranquilize the mind. I used it while teaching beginner kundalini yoga classes many years ago. Nearly instant peace of mind, wow!

MEDITATION CRISIS KIT: FREE DOWNLOAD

I have one other gift for you to reduce stress during the current crisis. This is the meditation “Crisis Kit” put out by Kundalini Research Institute. Here is the free download …

Link: “Kundalini Research Institute Crisis Kit,” copyright The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan … http://kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/docs/KRI-Crisis-Kit.pdf ..

I am familiar with all the meditations in the “Crisis Kit,” having practiced them myself and taught them to my kundalini yoga students in the 1980s. It is my hope you may find amongst them some that will be as helpful to you as I have found them to be.

CONCLUSION

Dear Ones, take heart during these times. I wish each of you good health and happiness, and the courage to face the stress of life with equanimity.

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

COVID: The Worst May Be Over in the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 April 2020; updated on 17 June 2020

[This post predicted a peak in hospital admissions for the United States on 7 April 2020, and a peak in deaths about a week later, on 14 April 2020.

Viewing the New York Times graph “New reported deaths by day in the United States” as of 17 June 2020, I see that deaths peaked three days after my predicted date, on 17 April 2020 –from Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by the Los Angeles Times Staff, in the Los Angeles Times, updated frequently … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html .. ]

Dear Ones,

There is a chance COVID hospital admissions may peak today for the United States on average.

According to this map, admissions already have peaked in Vermont, New York, Michigan, Louisiana, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, and  will peak this week for a number of other states …

Link: “How Are States Across the U.S. Projected to ‘Flatten the Curve’?” by Elijah Wolfson and Sanya Mansoor, 3 April 2020 … https://time.com/5815136/how-long-to-flatten-curve-us-states/ ..

It looks to me, from this article …

Link: “Clinical course and risk factors for mortality of adult inpatients with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China: a retrospective cohort study,” by Fei Zhou, MD, Ting Yu, MD, Ronghui Du, MD, et al, published 11 March 2020, The Lancet, Volume 395, Issue 10229, pp 1054-1062, 28 March 2020, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(20)30566-3https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30566-3/fulltext … See: Figure 1. Clinical courses of major symptoms and outcomes and duration of viral shedding from illness onset in patients hospitalised with COVID-19

… that for the portion of COVID patients admitted to a hospital and who do not survive, the median time till death may be about a week later; so we might anticipate a peak in COVID deaths one week later than the hospital admission peaks in the first reference above.

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

Dear Ones,

I did some research today on the cause of the configuration of the current COVID-19 infection map in the United States …

COVID-19 INFECTION MAP FOR THE UNITED STATES AS OF 25 MARCH 2020

Link: “Where COVID-19 Has Been Confirmed in the U.S. | Statista,” as of 25 March 2020, Sources: Johns Hopkins University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) … https://www.statista.com/chart/20978/coronavirus-cases-us-map/ … Creative Commons

Link: “Where COVID-19 Has Been Confirmed in the U.S. | Statista,” as of 25 March 2020, Sources: Johns Hopkins University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) … https://www.statista.com/chart/20978/coronavirus-cases-us-map/ … Creative Commons

As can be seen from the above map, some of the most affected states are New York, New Jersey, California, Washington State, Michigan, Illinois, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Georgia. Colorado, and Texas.

Least affected as of 25 March 2020 were the uppermost two tiers of states that were not near the Pacific Ocean or the Great Lakes.

USE OF ALCOHOL AND OF PRESCRIPTION AND NONPRESCRIPTION DRUGS MAY WEAKEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCREASING THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

I see by my research today that the use of alcohol or opioids (including heroin, cocaine, and prescription morphine) can weaken the immune system, increasing the severity of the effect of COVID-19 infection.

From the map, I see that most of the United States is involved in drug use, the least affected states being North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Texas.

DESCRIPTION: Dark red represents the highest drug overdose death rate.

Importance of Strengthening the Immune System

I have read that the COVID-19 statistics from China show 81 percent of those who are infected are asymptomatic [which I feel may mean not that they are asymptomatic, but rather that they do not present with symptoms that indicate the need for intubation]

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Epidemiology, Virology, and Prevention,” by Kenneth McIntosh, MD; Martin S. Hirsch, MD; and Allyson Bloom, MD, updated 12 June 2020 … https://www.uptodate.com/contents/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19?source=history_widget ..

I feel that lack of symptoms must have to do with the strength of the immune system; so whatever we can do to make our immune systems stronger, as the wave or waves of COVID-19 sweep through our particular state, would be very helpful.

For instance, I find that drinking filtered water with buffered vitamin C mixed into it every other day is very helpful in bolstering my immune system when I feel a cold coming on; this might be helpful for early symptoms of COVID-19 as well.

I also saw somewhere online that consumption of vitamin D might be helpful; and just in the general course of preventive health care, taking a daily vitamin and mineral supplement is recommended by many Western medical doctors.

In the case of people whose lifestyle includes the use of recreational drugs, the good news is that withdrawing from use of these drugs prior to the onset of symptoms might improve the chances of having only a mild response to COVID-19 infection.

INFECTION WITH HIV / AIDS MAY WEAKEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCREASING THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

As well, I have read that autoimmune diseases such as HIV / AIDS can weaken the immune system, increasing the severity of the effect of COVID-19 infection.

You can see the low arc of the infection swinging round the southern edges of the United States, and also that New York State is involved in the epidemic.

Image: “Rates of HIV Diagnosis in the United States, 2017,” by United States Centers for Disease Control, 1 February 2019, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hiv-us-map-2017.png … public domain … DESCRIPTION: Dark blue represents the highest HIV rate.

Image: “Rates of HIV Diagnosis in the United States, 2017,” by United States Centers for Disease Control, 1 February 2019, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hiv-us-map-2017.png … public domain …

DESCRIPTION: Dark blue represents the highest HIV rate.

There is no cure for HIV infection, but symptoms of AIDS can be treated. The present moment may not be the right time for that though. If you are infected with HIV, then you might want to ask your doctor about whether you ought to wait on treatment until the COVID-19 infection builds up and then subsides in the state in which you live (much as I hope will be the case for New York State soon).

Los Angeles COVID-19 Peak Predicted for 9-12 Days From Now

Along those lines, I read that Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti predicts that Angelenos may see a great surge in COVID-19 infections (concomitant to the surge currently being experienced in New York)  six to 12 days from now [that would be 31 March 2020 to 6 April 2020]

Link: “As deaths rise in L.A. County, officials issue new quarantine order,” by Sarah Parvini, Rong-Gong Lin II, Taryn Luna, and Colleen Shalby, 25 March 2020, in the Los Angeles Times … https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-03-25/coronavirus-california-peak-deaths ..

How Mayor Garcetti’s Prediction re Rise in California COVID-19 Cases Has Fared

On 15 June 2020, I viewed a graph of “New Reported Deaths by Day in California,” in Link: “California Coronavirus Map and Case Count” by New York Times Staff, updated 15 June 2020, in New York Times … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/california-coronavirus-cases.html ..

I see on the smoothed graph that California deaths did indeed start rising sharply on 31 March 2020, as predicted by Mayor Garcetti. The numbers continued to increase until 23 April 2020.

As of that date, graph smoothing shows a double peak of deaths on 23 April 2020 and 27-28 April 2020. Since then there has been a very gradual decline in daily numbers of deaths.

POSSIBLE FACTORS: HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS, CANADIAN CITIES NEAR NORTHERN UNITED STATES BORDER, AND MERCHANT MARINE

On studying the drug death and the HIV / AIDS infection maps above, I found these to a reasonable degree correspond to the lower arc of the above U.S. map of COVID-19 infection.

Thoughts on High-Rises and the COVID-19 Infection in New York State

I have a few thoughts about how New York has taken the fore in terms of COVID-19 infections. I wonder if it might have to do with many people living in high-rise buildings that share common HVAC … so that infected air might be circulating throughout a building?

As you may know, I mentioned the HVAC in high-rises as a possible source of COVID-19 infection in an earlier blog …

Link: “COVID-19 and Central HVAC,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 17 March 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-gZ4 ..

Thoughts on Possible Involvement of Canadian Cities Such as Toronto and Vancouver

As far as infection of Washington State and of the Great Lakes states is concerned, I wondered if trade with the Canadian cities of Vancouver and Toronto might have been a factor in their infection with COVID-19. I see no substantiation of this from the Canadian government, but it is possible there has not been as much testing for COVID-19 there, or that statistics have not yet been tabulated in that regard.

Thoughts on Possible Involvement of the Merchant Marine in Infection of United States International Ports

The involvement of the Great Lakes states in early COVID-19 infection surprised me; it made me wonder whether the merchant marine might be bringing COVID-19 from foreign ports into United States ports. The effect of the merchant marine might have had to do with the early COVID-19 infection of Washington State, California, and New York State as well.

. . . . .

Those are my thoughts for now on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Blessings of perfect health and happiness to everyone! Stay well!

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

Look Out for Stray Dogs in COVID Cities? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 24 March 2020; updated on 15 June 2020

Dear Ones,

I was out briefly in the San Fernando Valley this morning, and I intuitively picked up on a ‘sign’ or portent: I saw two dogs walking without an owner down the sidewalk, near Topanga Canyon Blvd. As this is a rare sight in Los Angeles, I got to thinking we ought to look out for stray dogs in the cities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, that would be cities in New York, New Jersey, California, and Washington State …

Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by Mitch Smith, Karen Yourish, Sarah Almukhtar, Keith Collins, Danielle Ivory, Allison McCann, Jin Wu and Amy Harmon, updated 24 march 2020 1:54 P.M. E.T., in The New York Times … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html … COMMENT: May require a ‘sign up’ to log onto this article.

I was out briefly in the San Fernando Valley this morning, and I intuitively picked up on a possible danger that might be coming up: I saw two dogs walking without an owner down the sidewalk near Topanga Canyon Blvd on Erwin Street. As this is a rare sight in Los Angeles, I got to thinking I ought to look out for stray dogs when I am in the Los Angeles communities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It seems to me possible there might later on be people at home and too sick to care for their pets because of the coronavirus. It is possible we will see roving, hungry pets on the sidewalks and streets, looking for food to scavenge.

I have two thoughts on this: First, I thought I would carry a sealed-up bag of dog kibble with me when out and about, as an offering of a little kibble might buy some time for a strategic retreat to one’s car or to within a building. Cat kibble might do, in a pinch.

Then I thought I would find out the phone number of the local animal rescue agency, write down a description of the dogs and the intersection, and call their personnel to ask for a rescue.

As rescue staff may be short in the coming weeks, I think the main thing may be to be aware of this novel, possible danger … the possibility of stray animals hungry and looking for food, possibly not acting normally, and to get to a safe place if they are sighted.

It is possible the coronavirus is transferable to pets, whether dogs or cats: I do not think that is known right now. If pets could get the virus, then I guess they might transmit it to a person. For that reason I advise against doing a good deed and taking a stray pet home, for now.

Years ago I remember seeing dogs that were once domestice and had since gone wild, running together in packs, and hunting in the canyons of San Diego. It is possible that very hungry dogs, especially if running in a pack, might attack a person, especially a child, and or maybe an adult, if at night; I thought I would stay clear of stray dogs during the next few weeks for that reason.

I know that currently, here in Los Angeles, the chance of danger from released or escaped pets is minimal. This is just a thought for the future.

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

Dear Ones,

AN EQUINOCTIAL LIGHTWORKER PROPHECY: DNA UPGRADE THROUGH THE INCOMING LIGHT

Here are photos taken at my house in the San Fernando Valley yesterday. These show the post-Equinoctial Incoming Light. Some are saying that humankind is dealing with a coronavirus pandemic right now; as a Lightworker, I interpret this quite differently.

I see a massive upgrade to the DNA template of humankind taking place before our eyes, and the Incoming Light that effects this change is streaming down everywhere …

COVID-19 and Central HVAC . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 March 2020

Dear Ones,

Here is a hunch for the wary: I advise staying away from buildings with central HVAC, such as highrise apartment buildings and office buildings during the coronavirus pandemic, if possible. My feeling is that the coronavirus germs might be carried through the HVAC from apartment to apartment or from office to office.

I wonder if it would be safe for a person to turn off HVAC vents in their highrise apartment or office during the height of the pandemic? If not, then might wearing masks and gloves in highrise buildings with central HVAC be helpful?

In homes with central HVAC, the same might apply. If, for example, one family member falls ill. That person might stay in a room with the HVAC vents shut off, and with maybe a floor heater for heat instead. For families, I wonder if it might be safer to turn off the central HVAC and rely on floor heaters until the pandemic has passed through their community?

Perhaps others will know better than I whether these hunches are important to our safety, and if so, how important they may be?

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

Predicted Coronavirus Death Toll for California . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 March 2020; updated on 15 June 2020

Dear Ones,

As you may know, the Chinese province of Hubei, which was the first part of the world to suffer the COVID-19 pandemic, has a population of 58.5 million people. Of those infected, the death toll according to the World Health Organization is 3,085 people.

There are about 39.6 million people in California. All things being equal (which may be far from the case) we might expect a coronavirus death toll in California of 2,088 people. [According to the Los Angeles Times (1) there have been 5,082 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in California as of 15 June 2020, so my estimate was too low.]

That is calculated thus: 3,085 Hubei province deaths, divided by 58.5M Hubei population, multiplied by 39.6M California population = 2,088 predicted State of California deaths.

As a percentage of the State of California population, that would be a mortality rate of 0.005 percent of the population; which is to say, a mortality rate of about five people in 10,000. [According to the New York Times (2), as of 15 June 2020, the COVID-19 mortality rate in California was 13 per 100,000, so my estimate was low.]

While far from ideal, those are pretty good odds of survival, I feel, provided we follow the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention coronavirus guidelines  …

A Hunch About the Coronavirus . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 12 March 2020

  • CORONAVIRUS MAY BE WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT UNDERDIAGNOSED BECAUSE OF TEST SHORTAGE
  • THERE MAY ALREADY HAVE BEEN SEVERAL THOUSAND COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES
  • STAY SIX FEET FROM COUGHING OR SNEEZING PEOPLE
  • COVID-19 PANDEMIC MIGHT LAST TWO YEARS AND INVOLVE A DEADLIER ‘SECOND WAVE’

Dear Ones,

I have been monitoring the daily situation reports on the Coronavirus by the World Health Organization …

Link: “Coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) situation reports,” by World Health Organization (WHO)  … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

CORONAVIRUS MAY BE WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT UNDERDIAGNOSED BECAUSE OF TEST SHORTAGE

My hunch is that the severe shortage of COVID-19 tests available in the United States are skewing the data. I see from a Google search that the CDC predicts about 12,000 Americans will die from the flu each year.

THERE MAY ALREADY HAVE BEEN SEVERAL THOUSAND COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES

Then there is this headline …

Link: “Trump ‘shocked’ by deadliness of flu — it’s killed at least 16,000 Americans this season,” by Meera Jagannathan, 28 February 2020 … https://www.marketwatch.com/story/as-the-world-focuses-on-coronavirus-dont-forget-about-the-deadly-flu-2020-02-06 ..

It seems likely to me that some of the extra 4,000 deaths over and above the 12,000 annually predicted might be misdiagnosed COVID-19 cases. In other words, it is possible that the Coronavirus is well established in the United States, but currently underdiagnosed.

STAY SIX FEET FROM COUGHING OR SNEEZING PEOPLE

I also note as well that the World Health Organization recommends keeping 3 feet away from coughing or sneezing people …

Link: “Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) advice for the public,” by World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public ..

… but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends keeping a distance of 6 feet away …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): How to Protect Yourself and Others,” by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) … https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html ..

COVID-19 PANDEMIC MIGHT LAST TWO YEARS AND INVOLVE A DEADLIER ‘SECOND WAVE’

Based on what happened during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic, it is possible the COVID-19 pandemic might last two years and involve a deadlier ‘second wave’ of illnesses. That earlier pandemic infected about 27 percent of people in the world at that time. About 3 to 5 percent of the world population at that time died of influenza …

Link: “Spanish Flu,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu ..

This sort of outcome would be on the severe end of possible outcomes for the Coronavirus pandemic. Yet it does point out the importance of storing as much in the way of basic food and water supplies as possible, in case the COVID-19 pandemic should be more severe than anticipated, and should there be foodstuffs shortages.

One does what one may in such instances, taking a middle path of preparation between the extremes, quite naturally dependent on financial means at hand.

I myself have a more optimistic notion of the likely course of the pandemic. If there is a second wave of illness in Hubei in the first half of 2020, then I will revise my ideas about it.

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

P.S.: It could be that test shortages and difficulties with reporting health data in cities of China other than Hubei may be causing skewed Coronavirus statistics there as well. For instance, I see in the WHO daily situation reports that statistics on confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths in the last 24 hours are missing for many cities in China.

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.

Coronavirus in the United States: Stay Home If Possible Now? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I have read that the incubation period for the Coronavirus is unknown, but might be from 2 to 14 days. I also read that it is possible some, even many, people are getting a very mild illness rather than grave symptoms.

Two days ago I was in Walmart and saw there a young child quite sick with a cough, walking and crying alongside his mother. Then today I saw a young woman who had a cough.

It is not known one way or the other, but I presume it is possible that some of those with mild coughs in Washington State, California, and New York right now, among others, might have very mild cases of Coronavirus that are ‘flying beneath the radar’ …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Cases in the U.S.,” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), updated often … https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-in-us.html … See the subheading: Cases and Deaths by County

If so, then others may be exposed to the virus, which might take several weeks to incubate. That would mean people might be working or going to school or doing sports as usual, not knowing they might have and might possibly transmit the virus to others.

I feel that now is the time for those who are able … such as retired people and moms with young children in the most affected parts of the United States … to go ahead and stay at home, keeping to themselves insofar as possible.

That is just my feeling on it. I wish each of you and your families and friends the best of health during this difficult time.

God’s blessing be with you and with those who are dear to you.

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

How Much Food and Water Should We Buy to Wait Out the Coronavirus? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I took a look at the World Health Organization daily situation reports for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) today …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” bky World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I see there is a decline in confirmed cases of the virus in the day prior to 2 March 2020 for Hubei, China. According to WHO, the virus broke out there on 31 December 2020. We have 42 WHO reports from 20 January 2020 through 2 March 2020.

Thus we have 20 unreported days and 42 days reported on by WHO, since the outbreak in Hubei. That is a total of 62 days.

If the decline in confirmed cases in Hubei continues in the days to come, then the people of that city will have seen the worst of the outbreak last week. Should this be so, then we can anticipate the epidemic will tail off in Hubei over an equal period of time, which is to say, an additional 62 days.

Thus, in this reasonable scenario, the outbreak will have lasted 4 months in Hubei. Taking that as a touchstone for the duration of the epidemic in other countries, I suggest that we lay in a 4-month supply of food and water supplies (or means of disinfecting water, in case the local water supply might be compromised).

That will allow us to avoid interacting with restaurant and supermarket personnel and customers who might be infected. As well, it will suffice in case food supplies become scarce (as have face masks globally).

Food needs can be supplied at reasonable cost through purchasing big sacks of rice and of beans, which I feel ought to be kept from rodents by being placed in durable plastic storage bins.

The food can be purchased at Walmart or Smart and Final Iris. It is difficult to find durable plastic storage bins that fasten securely enough to deter rodents; Walmart or Target might have these. Of course, sturdier storage, such as metal containers with metal lids, would be better, but these may be available only in rural areas.

For more on the topic of survival see …

P.S. It might be good, as well, to purchase a supply of vitamin C, which might help bolster the immune system. My preference is buffered vitamin C powder, which I find to be more agreeable to my gastrointestinal tract. If that is not available (as with the face masks) then whatever may be had must suffice.

CDC Guidelines for COVID-19 . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 25 February 2020
Previously titled: CDC Guidelines for Coronavirus

Dear Ones,

I was wondering whether it would be good to stock up on disposable face masks and gloves because of the Coronavirus. I heard from a person in a food store that face masks with filters can be purchased from Home Depot; he says he likes his. I thought he might be referring to something like the M 8511 respirator with a filter.

From prior research I did on face masks to wear to prevent smoke inhalation during forest fires, I thought maybe disposable face masks specifying ‘NIOSH approved: N95’ might be good.

The bottom line, though, is that I was unable to find these available in a timely fashion and/or way too expensive. Even the three-fold medical face masks with the ear loops were unavailable.

For face masks, all I could do was get some of what Amazon.com did offer, and that must needs do. What I ended up with was a box of non-NIOSH approved, non-N95 disposable dust masks.

On the other hand, it was easy to purchase available vinyl, latex-free disposable gloves.

Here is useful Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance regarding preventing the spread of the Coronavirus …

  • WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS
  • NEW YORK TIMES CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS COMPARED TO THOSE OF WHO
  • LOS ANGELES TIMES CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS FOR CALIFORNIA

Dear Ones,

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS

I have found a World Health Organization (WHO) web page with daily situation reports on the coronavirus (COVID-2019) …

Link: “Coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) situation reports,” by World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

NEW YORK TIMES CORONAVIRUS STATISTICS COMPARED TO THOSE OF WHO

On 6 March 2020 I checked the New York Times statistics (you have to create an account, either free or paid, in order to view the article) on Coronavirus cases within the United States …

Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by Sarah Almukhtar, Aliza Aufrichtig, Matthew Bloch, et al., updated daily

As of that date, he New York Times indicated 227 people with the coronavirus have been treated in the United States. Twenty-one states were involved, and 14 patients had died. It averred that infection was being spread within the United States, and not just through travel to other countries.

The WHO statistics for 5 March 2020 were less timely, but supportive of the New York Times report. As of 5 March 2020, WHO confirmed 129 cases in the United States (of these 21 were new cases as of 5 March 2020); and nine total deaths as of 5 March 2020 (three of which occurred on 5 March 2020). This statistical source also indicated local transmission within the United States was then occurring.

Vinegarweed (Trichostema lanceolatum) to Dispel Grief . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 18 October 2017; published on 25 November 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about the California native plant Vinegar Weed (Trichostema lanceolatum). A Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I was out here in the mountains today, and I ran across a kind of flower that only blooms once in a while in the mountains. It has tiny purple flowers on it, and a kind of hairy, whitish-green leaves. And it is an herb! (1)

If you rub the leaves with your hand, and then sniff them, it has the most incredible smell to it! … a little like the kind of oil [linseed oil] that I used to mix my oil paints with when I was a child.

Sniffing of the oil, in moderation, intuition tells me, causes grief to release from the lungs. (However, I would like to add that I advise caution in trying out wild herbs, no matter what may be in various plant guides regarding their medicinal qualities.)

So I sniffed a little, and I made a note of that, and I started walking along the trail again. Then all of a sudden, I started crying! And so, in my experience, it actually works really well, and very fast! … I will put some photos and the name in; I will find them for you …
