United States Decentralization Indicators Uptick . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 September 2021

Dear Ones,

The technique outlined in this webpage for talking with a real IRS agent works …

Link: “How to Speak Directly to an IRS Agent,” by TaxSlayer Pro … https://support.taxslayerpro.com/hc/en-us/articles/1260807635769-How-to-speak-directly-to-an-IRS-agent?fbclid=IwAR0YxdrIsFBFMpYBPqU96aDOJFBFM7AnhepCJmk9G1paSqCmWJCoJlGOWpU ..

… but I had to sit down and call, time after time, to get to an open line. What the person with whom I spoke said is that 2020 tax returns are still being processed. That is a 4-month delay from the usual processing time. She said it has to do with understaffing because of COVID.

That might be the partial cause; but in addition I feel that, if the IRS budget was strained by lack of income from 2020 tax returns (say, because taxpayers made less than the IRS projected based on prior years) then the IRS might have needed to hold back on 2020 tax refunds till the date of the third estimated tax payment for 2021. That is 15 September 2021, about 2 weeks from now.

My hunch is that influx of cash in the next few weeks might make it possible for the IRS to honor its commitment to send us our 2020 tax refunds.

In addition I have found USPS mail delivery in some American small towns (Durango and Upper Marlboro in my case) to be unreliable since about 2014. The US Postal Inspector is apparently unable to set things aright.

Three barometers of the American way of life are taxes, mail delivery, and the right to own real estate. As two of these are faltering in a way that seems from my stance to be unprecedented, my hunch is the United States may be undergoing a ‘sea change’ similar to that experienced by the USSR when it decentralized in December 1991.

In 2019 I wrote an article addressing the issue what we might anticipate here in the US were such a process to occur, in case you would like to take a look …

To that blog I added the following today …

REGIONAL PACTS NOW IN PLACE

In the event of decentralization here in the United States, I feel the United States might expect to enjoy three power blocks along geographic lines of the three COVID pacts now in place amongst states in the Eastern States, the Midwest, and the Western States …

The Eastern States Multistate Council to do with COVID consists of the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island …

Link: “Eastern States Multi-State Council,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_States_Multi-state_Council ..

As well, there is the Midwest Governors Regional Pact” to do with COVID. This consists of the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin …

Link: “Midwest Governors Regional Pact,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midwest_Governors_Regional_Pact ..

There is also, to do with COVID, a Western States Pact involves the states of California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington …

Link: “Western States Pact and Possible Decentralization of the United States,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_States_Pact#:~:text=The%20Western%20States%20Pact%20is,to%20the%20COVID%2D19%20pandemic. ..

Here is the map of the power blocks for these pacts, which, I feel, may well be expanded to assure continuity of taxation, mail delivery services, securance of real property rights, and local military defense, in the event of decentralization of the United States …

Report on Health Effects of a Copper Fabric ‘Bath’ . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 29 August 2021

Dear Ones,

I purchased a 78 inch by 43 inch length of the Amradield Store copper fabric from Amazon.com to see what would happen if I placed it over myself as I lay on my back.

  • The first time I used it, I felt a happy ‘thrill’ in the electromagnetic field of the frontal vortex of my heart chakra, as if my heart were welcoming the presence of the copper.
  • Then I noticed a cleansing or clearing of the EMF fields of each of my personal chakras.
  • Then I experienced a surprising amount of mucus coming up from my lungs and down from my sinuses and emptying into my gastrointestinal tract. The mucus continued to clear for about 30 minutes; after that I took the copper fabric off and carefully (as it seems fragile to me) folded it up.

A week later I tried this copper fabric ‘bath’ once again. This time there was the same feeling of EMF regeneration, but no mucus clearing, and I felt that the process was ended after 10 minutes, so I took the copper fabric off then.

I recall I went to an energy healer who was then here in Los Angeles back in the early 2000s. He had good astral vision, I feel, and he said he could see mucus here and there indicating disease or maybe ‘dis-ease’ in his patients’ bodies. He would use his psychic ability to send the mucus (maybe on the astral plane?) away.

I am guessing, then, that removal of excess physical mucus from the body would be a good thing. As well, after my mild bout with COVID in early March 2020 and two COVID vaccinations a year later, I have in recent months been experiencing more than the usual amount of mucus in my lungs and sinuses, but of course, less so after the copper fabric ‘baths’.

My own idea about this excess mucus is that it may have to do with the pneumonia aspect of COVID; that it may take a long time for the lungs to get completely back to normal after pneumonia, and that regular exercise, relatively mucus-free diet, and 7 hours’ rest a night might help prevent ‘long COVID’ symptoms.

As well, my experience with copper fabric has proven helpful for me. I realize this is but anecdotal evidence. I would be very interested in my readers’ experience with copper fabric, if you would like to comment about it. The comment forms are at the bottom of every post.

In love, light and joy,

Lightworkers: On Avoiding Danger While Attending Church During the Ascension of Earth . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I have been reading “Preferential Option for the Poor” in “How to Speak Ignatian: Common words and phrases of the Society of Jesus.” I gather that tenet might be misconstrued in the Homeboy Industries program run by a Jesuit father in Los Angeles in this way:

Adherence to the tenet might lead Homeboy Industries subconsciously to consider the possibility of using ex-felon labor to murder well-heeled people on the excuse they have led lives the Jesuits deem reprehensible. The subconscious agenda might be that the money of the wealthy might be cozened for use by Homeboy Industries leadership so as to advance the Jesuits’ Preferential Option for the Poor. I have encountered this steely-eyed subconscious agenda in the dreamtime realm of the astral plane.

I discern it to be a denser energy misqualified in the current context of Ascension of planet Earth. The Society of Jesus cultivates finely honed minds in their quest for God’s presence in their daily life. I beg them to consider the most appropriate application in daily life of the Preferential Option for the Poor.

Link: “How to Speak Ignatian: Common words and phrases of the Society of Jesus Adapted from “How to Speak Loyola,” Identity, Loyola University, Chicago … https://www.jesuithighschool.org/sites/main/files/file-attachments/how_to_speak_ignatian_0.pdf … Surf to: “Option for the Poor.”

I feel the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) to be a powerful force in the Catholic Church. As a Lightworker, I have a concern that, because of their power, which is much sought by the Dark, they might be targets of the Army of the Night; in other words, of the Demon Realm.

I see from my reading that there is historical support for this concern, to do with decades-long concealment of sexual abuse, including child sexual abuse, by Jesuits …

Link: “Sexual Abuse Scandal in the Society of Jesus,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_abuse_scandal_in_the_Society_of_Jesus ..

On the psychic plane I gather, amongst Catholic laity and clergy, an oft-adhered-to thought form to do with Christ’s sacrifice of his life on the cross for the good of humankind. I see what, as a Lightworker, I feel to be an adulteration of this teaching that goes like this: We will cast you (the Lightworker) out of this church, and arrange for this or that bad thing to happen to you. We are justified in this by Christ’s example. If he sacrificed himself on the cross for us, then you ought to agree to sacrifice yourself for our wellbeing.

I would like to set down in writing here the following: This thought form is invidious in the extreme. It is a way of exerting ‘power over’ to force another person into a role of selfless service. By adhering to such a thought form a person places himself in the role of the Centurion who oversaw Christ’s crucifixion. Surely this is an undesirable role for a Christian to play.

In like manner, but in an opposite context, I feel that holding high the practice of intentionally making oneself physically miserable through such practices as self-flagellation, mutilation of the male or genital organs, or torture or removal of any part of the physical body … which is known to be the Temple of the Holy Spirit … is contrary to the Will of God. In this context I always remember the words of Christ at Gethsemane: “Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.” –Mark 13:46 (KJV)

As a LIghtworker, I agree with Christ on this. Christ would, I feel, not intentionally have inflicted injury on his physical body. Nor would He have intentionally allowed anyone else to do so. Rather, He would, I feel in my heart, have done His best to preserve and uplift his physical body, and to keep his Spirit and that of His disciples far from evil inclination. Though He might feel that the law of His religion and of his religious elders amongst the Jews was wrong in this regard, yet he might, throughout His life, align with the Will, the Heart, and the Mind of God.

Evil befell him through Judas Iscariot. Christianity looks upon Christ’s crucifixion on Mount Calvary as a great blessing to humankind. Was that because of what Judas Iscariot did? Was it because of the condemnation of the Jewish elders, who acted, I feel, out of desire to maintain their own social standing? Or was it because, no matter what, Christ stood by God’s Will as being His own salvation?

History does not hold in high esteem the name Judas Iscariot. History does not even record the name of those Jewish elders. Yet it holds high Christ’s unshakeable faith in God’s Will.

The stance of Christianity that Christ’s suffering on the cross was what caused the salvation of all Christians is, I feel somewhat adulterated with misqualified, denser energies. It was, I feel, not his physical suffering that caused the upliftment of humankind. Rather it was his understanding that faith in God’s Will is the greatest good that can befall a human being.

Adherence to God’s Will may cause what seems like suffering; yet in the end, each of us passes on. Each of us suffers in that way. And after that, what befalls us? How may we experience the most joy after passing on? By continuing in our faith in the Will of God, which stands like a beacon before the Soul even when the physical body no longer may act as an instrument of the Soul’s self-understanding.

Thus it seems to me that the great glory of the Crucifixion was Christ’s greater understanding of right action in right understanding in dimensions higher than the third dimension, the mere physical realm. He did his best to preserve his physical body, and so, I feel, ought each of us Christians. Yet when that instinct of self-preservation was, in his optimal timeline and dimension in the causal realm (the third and fourth dimensions) of no avail, then faith in God saw Him through to dimensions fifth (the Heavenworlds) and higher. His faith overlit the path to the higher dimensions for the many who follow his example.

In a Lightworker context, in everyday life, the moral obligation of a human being is to balance the outgoing energy of selfless service with the incoming energy of personal healing, or ‘service to self’; for without being well and healthy ourselves … without having enough money to get by … without being happy and feeling joy in our lives … how can we hope to offer health and prosperity, happiness and joy, to other people in the world? I hold that to be strongly true: That I must first look to my physical welfare, and from that standing point, I may radiate Light and love and joy to all other human beings.

In terms of the lesser Light, the darker understandings of our animal ancestry, I gather from the psychic plane that there are historical forms of ‘shunning’ used by Judaism, by Early Christianity, and by Catholicism as a form of curse … which in my LIghtworker work I consider to be witchcraft. One of these, which I ran across in recent years on the psychic plane, is ‘Anathema’.

According to Wikipedia, “Anathema, in common usage, is something that or someone who is detested or shunned. In its other main usage, it is a formal excommunication …. The latter meaning, its ecclesiastical sense, is based on New Testament usage. In the Old Testament, anathema was a creature or object set apart for sacrificial offering and thus removed from ordinary use and destined instead for destruction.”  –from Link: “Anathema,” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anathema … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

Shunning is a feral drive or pack instinct stemming from the subconscious mind, which is molded by the animal past of humankind. From the psychic plane … but not online … I gather the Christian church has other methods of shunning, such as ‘Excoriation’ (which was disapproved of by Pope Francis) … and one other ritual, that I was too shocked, while experiencing the channeling, to write down its name, and have now forgotten it.

I do recall with some vividness of emotional affect, a muckraking effort to cast me as a sexworker and drug addict, through a ritual of Excoriation on the psychic plane. In the dreamtime realm, this manifested as a gathering of Jesuits … or perhaps actor impersonators playing such a role … flogging in concert and uttering these untruths regarding my life and character. Were it true that this dream was created by actor impersonators, then it would have the double impact of scandalmongering with regard to the Jesuits, and mudslinging with regard to my own character. It was pretty grim stuff that spun out, that memorable night, in the dreamtime realm, through the Collective Subconscious of the noosphere.

On the psychic plane, acting out of the ritual texts of ‘Anathema’ and ‘Excoriation’ came across as a diatribe spoken with solemn authority by a group of Jesuits so as to cause the Soul to whom they referred to be damned to Hell. As is often the case on the psychic plane, the words of the curse of Anathema came across as if the Jesuits were applying the curse to me personally.

I have found from other instances that to feel personal about energy threads clairly perceived on the psychic plane is a misqualified approach to Lightworkers’ efforts to help anchor to planet Earth the Incoming Light of Earth’s Ascension. Of course, I agree, it is very unlikely that what I heard on the astral plane applies to me personally.

Nevertheless, it was off-putting enough for me to come to this conclusion regarding a good mode of action for Lightworkers in the current times: I suggest that groups of all sorts, including organized religion and government, are being purified and remolded as the Incoming Light buffets and upwardly energizes Earth in atunement with the higher frequencies of energy now available to all Earth beings.

I feel that, in the minds of pastors of churches throughout Los Angeles, as might be expected, because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the specter of social unrest, and fluctuations in the worlds of finance, economics, and economic trade, there may be issues of concern for the clergy’s personal safety and of clergical abuse of well-heeled members of the congregations to mitigate the clergy’s personal fears.

For the time being, I feel it would be safest, when attending group meetings of all sorts, for us Lightworkers to give no money at all as donations, or only to offer a dollar bill, so as not to be singled out as an object of greed that might assuage the clergy’s fears for their personal safety and for not losing their church grounds in the general upheaval that is going on.

Especially, I feel it important not to offer donations to any non-profit institution in the form of a check, as when non-profits are hard up for finances, they will call our banks as if they were merchants or employers, and try to pinpoint donors with plenty of money in the bank. I would say, be very careful not to keep large amounts of money in a bank account accessible through checking, as this clearly might trigger acting out of the people in charge of the non-profits because of their greed and their concern for their personal safety, as well as the enduring safety of their non-profit organizations.

For those of the LIghtworkers who inadvertently pull in the curse of Anathema, I would be hard-pressed to express the extent to which I feel it inadvisable to approach the issue of witchcraft and black magic within the major religions through action in the real world. Instead, we must dissolve within ourselves any strands of energy … no matter how small … that allow this energy to manifest in our energy bodies, using our usual Lightworker techniques. Were the circumstances of human institutions during the Ascension process to prevent our participation in groups, we might always view a church service online, say our prayers at home, and walk lovingly upon the Earth throughout our days.

God bless you all,
And keep you safe,
And be with you through all your days!

In love, light and joy,

California Death Rate from COVID . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 13 August 2021

Dear Ones,

Loathe though I be to broach such a topic, here are the figures on death by COVID in California to date: (64,016 deaths) divided by (4,085,001 confirmed cases to date) times 100 (to get the percent) = 1.6% death rate. Not so awful after all!

Dear Ones,

It looks like U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham got the same mild sinus congestion symptoms from the Delta variant as I did a few weeks ago. I found buffered vitamin C alleviated the symptoms. I note the Senator had already been vaccinated for COVID, as have I been.

Unlike the news media, I would not call this a ‘breakthrough infection’, but rather I would say it is proof that vaccination offers pretty good immunity to COVID infection. I say that because, a year prior to getting the COVID vaccine,

I apparently got COVID (although there was no test in March 2020 to prove for sure that this was COVID). I can say the symptoms I got in March 2020 … which I felt must have been COVID … were far more severe than this mild sinus congestion I experienced in July 2021. I feel, from that, that my immune system is overall very prepared to fight off new COVID variants.

Link: “Lindsey Graham Is 1st Vaccinated Senator to Test Positive for COVID-19,” by Meg Kinnard, 2 August 2021, in Los Angeles Times … https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2021-08-02/lindsey-graham-is-1st-vaccinated-senator-to-test-positive-for-covid-19 ..

The buffered vitamin C I use, which I purchased on Amazon was called: “Thorne Research – Buffered C Powder – Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) with Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium – 8.15 Oz.”

Of course, others may work just as well, provided they are ‘buffered’, so as to go easy on the intestinal tract … at least, that is how I understand it). Could be something like that is available in your area.

‘Take Shelter’ . movie review by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 19 July 2021

Image: “Apokalipse,” by Albert Goodwin, 1903, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Apocalypse-Albert_Goodwin.jpg … public domain

Image: “Apokalipse,” by Albert Goodwin, 1903, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Apocalypse-Albert_Goodwin.jpg … public domain

Dear Ones,

I skimmed through the movie ‘Take Shelter’ the other day …

Link: “Take Shelter,” IMDb … https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1675192/ ..

I find the movie interesting because the recurring images experienced by the male protagonist seem like what I term ‘image words’ from the gut brain (the subconscious mind’s vocabulary). It is good how the ending shows that a family can stand together and shelter in faith in each other, and love of each other, even if the subconscious mind is creating what the Ascensioneers call ‘vivid waking dreams’, in the case of the movie, more like vivid waking nightmares.

The movie also shows how one person’s fearful ‘mental filter’ (that of the husband in the movie) can influence another person (in this case the wife) to take on the same ‘mental filter’.

As a phenomenon, the tendency of the human mind to broadcast mental filters can be either good or bad. The difference has to do with the tenor of the emotional portion of the images that are broadcast. Is the emotion negative or positive? That is the key to the effect that broadcasting of one’s own mental filters has on other people.

For instance, in the movie ‘Take Shelter’ one of the visually striking images that recur in the mind of the male protagonist is a ‘murmuration’ of birds, perhaps starlings or sparrows. This is an aerial phenomenon rather like the simultaneous turning and wheeling motion of schools of fish in the water …

Video: “School of Fish,” by Earth Rangers, 25 July 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su1en9Vxpog ..

In the movie ‘Take Shelter’, the male protagonist feels a recurring anxious feeling, a feeling of  foreboding. It is, I feel, because of the negative tenor of his emotion that he takes his recurring image of a murmuration of dark-colored birds to be an omen of impending apocalypse.

Yet many people see a murmuration of birds, and feel joy or wonderment when they see it. Such is the case with the young women in this video …

Video: “Murmuration (Official Video) by Sophie Windsor Clive & Liberty Smith,” by IslandsAndRivers 2 December 2011 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRNqhi2ka9k ..

It is clear, then, that it is the feeling that accompanies visualization of an image that causes its perception as a good image or a bad image.

When a person has recurring images popping up from the subconscious mind, and when these images are accompanied by a strongly negative emotion … one that is hard to deal with without ‘acting out’ … then psychologists might term that condition Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (as with COVID stress). Or they might term it ‘generalized anxiety’; or if the emotions get out of hand, they might term it ‘panic attack’. There is also the psychological term ‘paranoid schizophrenia’, which I gather might be a label for recurring ‘panic attacks’ as in the movie.

Broadcasting of mental filters has a good effect in cases where a person’s mental filters allow him to send forth uplifting images from the subconscious mind. In these instances, families or groups such as social circles and church congregations can stand together with courage against adversity.

Broadcasting of mental filters has a bad effect in cases such as that in the movie, where the protagonist’s fearful mental images cause his wife to become fearful, and cause his Ohio small town community to turn against him and label him mentally imbalanced. Broadcasting of negatively aspected mental filters can, I feel, cause what is termed ‘folie à deux’, ‘folie à famille’, ‘folie à coterie’ (that is, a delusion shared by two people, by a family, or by a small group); or in the case of crowds of people, ‘mass hysteria’. The latter may take place across a town, or across a nation, or even … due to the near-instantaneous nature of global communication … worldwide, as is the case with COVID fears.

Please do not misunderstand: It is not that we ought not take proper precautions regarding COVID; it is just that negatively aspected images to do with COVID can cause inappropriate actions … or no action at all, when action is in fact needed so as to preserve life. For instance, it may well be that COVID vaccines are a ‘hard sell’ worldwide because people are experiencing ‘fawn’, ‘freeze’, or ‘flop’ types of threat responses after taking in too much in the way of online images that cause them to feel the emotion of fear regarding COVID.

In cases where a person is affected by other people’s broadcasting of negatively aspected mental filters (such as with the relentless COVID newscasts last year), the person must learn to view negatively aspected mental images with a neutral mind, as does the male protagonist in the movie ‘Take Shelter’. Through cutting down on visual intake of negative images … for instance, by limiting one’s viewing of negative images online … anxiety about the future can be dealt with nonreactively. Or one may simply stand strong and still, while the image is visualized, until the negative feeling ebbs away.

That means to me that the true ‘shelter’ for one’s mind is a strong, still, neutral stance of mind despite the ups and downs of daily life.

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

Dear Ones,

It appears to me that the COVID delta variant has taken over COVID cases in CA, and because it is very infectious, infections with COVID are increasing. But from the statistics I see that daily deaths from COVID in California are holding steady.

If that is true, then the COVID epidemic, which has so far lasted 14 months in the United States, is falling in line with the 1918 Influenza Epidemic, which lasted 15 months. Could be the worst is over.

In love, light and joy,
