SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Iambic Tetrameter Sayings to Soothe Astral Rape Gangs

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

I have been dealing with the issue of misogyny … hatred of women … on the astral plane through last night. A lot of other people have joined in. I have come to some startling, interim conclusions that I feel may help abate the energy of misogyny on the astral plane.

There is a type of rhythm that you can use, and words that you can use, that to me are reminiscent of a mother’s heartbeat. I think that the issue of the motherly love, and the mother’s heartbeat, are very important, in cases of misogyny, hatred of women. I will give you just a few examples.

When men are misogynists, on the astral plane they cluster together in astral rape gangs, and descend upon women in groups of six to nine or 12. And while they are resting, or sleeping, or unconscious in some way, these astral rape gangs descend upon women and begin a chant that involves astral rape.

This has to do with a few with a few things: It has to do with arrogance … you could say … or a lack of relationship to the Mother, which results in lack of empathy, and increased male bonding, not counterbalanced by the feelings of empathy and love such as a mother would have.

So the astral rape gangs suddenly descend! I know some of you are hearing this clairaudiently, or have experienced this feeling of astral rape, or astral ‘gangbang’. (Some use other words for it.)

And so, when they descend, what you say is (and paying attention to the soft tone of the voice, and the smooth, slow rhythm of the voice) …

 

I am irresponsive to your plea. I am irresponsive to your plea.

The next bit of banter may have something to do with a kind of a very mild taunt by one of the men in the astral rape gang; and it goes like this …

 

I thought you loved me more than anything! (Seeming sincere, right?) And this is as far as I have gotten as to the response to this; you will notice it has the same tone and rhythm as the last response  … and it goes like this …

That dandelion thing is not for me. That dandelion thing is not for me. 

Alternatively, you could say: That hootenanny thing is not for me. That hootenanny thing is not for me.

That somehow diffuses the energy of misogyny … hatred of women … on the astral plane. I think that it will be sufficient, even though it is incomplete; it will be sufficient to allow you to phrase your own concepts, your own responses, in your own terms, if you will use the same soothing tone, and the same rhythm … the same syllable and the same accents … like in poetry.

All right, everyone … very good luck with this. I hope this works, because the turning of the Atlantean age, which is just taking place right now … back to an era of balance between the Divine Masculine and Feminine … requires us to find a pacific counter to the energies of misogyny that have arisen to a crescendo in 2012, and are now beginning to abate.

Postscript

Iambic Tetrameter: The Mother’s Heartbeat. I just did some research on the rhythm and the accents of the two examples that I gave, and I found out they are both examples of Iambic Tetrameter … That is, more or less, sets of an unstressed syllable, followed by a stressed syllable … that is the Iamb … it is the rhythm of the heartbeat; and Tetrameter means that there are four such sets of syllables in the line.

A good example of Iambic Tetrameter is Joyce Kilmer’s poem called “The Tree” … which everybody knows. The rhythm goes like this: da-Daah, da-Daah, da-Daah, da-Daah … one unstressed syllable, followed by a stressed syllable … and four sets of these.

As you can tell, it is the feeling of a steady heartbeat, the loving heartbeat of the mother; the very first rhythm that a child ever knows. While still unborn, it feels that rhythm; so it is a very reassuring, calming rhythm. And it helps in cases of anger or upset or rage, or even of unbridled sexual attraction. It helps calm a person’s heart, I feel.

Iambic Pentameter: The Slow Gallop. It is worth noting that there are other examples of the iambic poetry; for example, the one that I always loved: Iambic Pentameter, which is five sets of Iambic syllables. To me that feels kind of like a horse in a slow gallop across a beautiful, summer meadow.

There are examples of Iambic Pentameter in the writing of William Shakespeare, John Donne, and Geoffrey Chaucer. I think that Iambic Pentameter gained popularity because, in those days, people often rode horseback; and that galloping feeling … that slow, galloping feeling … was something that allowed them to compose poetry while on the hunt, for example, or going to war, or just riding a horse for the fun of it. And reciting that poetry probably reminded them of all those adventures that they had on horseback, in their lives.

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

Donkey Song . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 February 2018

Dear Ones,

Here’s the “Donkey Song” that I wrote yesterday. This account is entirely fictional. There’s a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

 

Donkey Song
by Alice B. Clagett

[singing …]

He was playing ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’,
with a blindfold on his eyes,
They spun him him around, 
and before he could blink,
he pinned his tail on the wall.
Yeah, he pinned his tail on the wall.

He was playing ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’.
Put a blindfold on his eyes,
They spun him him around, 
and around and around,
and he pinned that tail on the wall.

We’ll all have a thought for the man who played
‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’.
We’ll all have a thought for that dizzy guy
who pinned his tail to the wall.

[speaking …]

One day, full of despair,
in the darkest night,
he walked down by the ocean.
And when he got to the shore,
he walked to the beach.
And when he got to the beach,
he walked to the surf.
And when he walked to the surf,
he walked to the deeper water.
And the water got very, very deep;
and he just kept on walkin’.

[sighs …]

And after a while,
If you had the wings of an angel,
you could see him floating
out towards the sea.

You could see him
floating on his back,
just his chest
bobbin’ in the waves.

And he looked  …
he looked like he was peaceful …
he looked like he was happy …
he looked like he felt
that things were going to be ok …

[sibilant whisper] And his wife said: “There are plenty of fish in the sea!”

[speaking …]

And a day went by …
and a week or two …

And the body that he had known
as his very own
sunk down deep into the waves,
down into the bottom
of the ocean.

And then one day,
after the full moon,
in the early morning hours,
just at dawn,
he woke up,
near that very body.

And he said,
“Oh, my! What … what has happened?

“What is going on?
Here I see my body
deep down, in the bottom of the sea floor.

“And I feel like I need to be near it.
and I can’t go anywhere.
I can’t get away from it; I can’t leave it …
I have to stay right here.”

And I said:

“It’s going to be dawn any minute.
If you will rise up, out of the water,
you could see the Sun rising.”

He paused … and then he said:

“Not right now.
I can’t do it right now.”

And I said:

“Ok. I’ll wait until … until you’re ready.
And when you’re ready,
we’ll see what happens.”

Preview of Coming Attractions

Then one day,
some time later on,
in a dream,
I saw him rising up from the ocean floor,
into the sunlight of a New Dawn.

And I heard a song. It went like this …

[singing …]

Well, he was guy
with a wife and child,
and he loved them
most of all.

But then he got dizzy,
and in a tizzy,
he pinned his tail to the wall …
yeah, he pinned his tail to the wall.

Yes, you’ll find him there,
floating away,
on a sea of vast despair …

And then he woke up,
and he said: What’s up?
I thought I was way down there …

On the bottom of the ocean,
the deep, blue sea …
and now I’m up in the air!

And I said: “Dear heart,
please don’t despair,

Your momma is waiting there.

“If you’ll turn to the Light,
to your great delight,
you’ll find your momma in the air.

“If you’ll turn to the Light,
to your great delight,
you’ll find that momma in the air …

“No more despair …
no more despair!”

[speaking …]

And then I saw a woman waiting for him,
with a big smile on her face,
and arms outstretched …

And I heard her sing a song …
and it went like this …

[singing …]

She said: “My son, my son,
you’re the wonderful one,
please be of good cheer.

“My son, my son,
you’re the wonderful one,
I’m so happy you are here.”

She said: “My son, my son,
you’re the wonderful one.
You’re the one I’ll always love.

“Come right here
and give me a hug …
Good to see you, thank the heavens above …
good to see you, thank the heavens above.”

[speaking …]

And she took her finger,
and she wiped a tear from his cheek,
and she gave him a big, big hug
and she said …

“It’s so wonderful to see you!
Will you come with me?
I have something to show you …”

And they walked up
to a great, white Light ..

And I could see
a kind of a white, glowing place there,
like the white, shiny inside of an oyster shell,
that kind of a thing.
only very bright.

I was looking …
I was watching …
and I saw them walk up that way …

And then, all in the blink of an eye,
I didn’t see them any more.
But I heard a song,
that very same song …

[singing …]

“My son, my son,
you’re the wonderful one,
please be of good cheer.

“My son, my son,
you’re the wonderful one …
it’s so wonderful to have you here.

“It’s so great that you are here.
Oh, it’s a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day,
now that I have you here.”

Love you!

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

Despair . by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally published on 29 December 2013 

Dear Ones,

This video is about despair, today’s astrogeophysical phenomena, and the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis. There’s a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones.

I’m here at Topanga Canyon State Park. This is a popular walking trail here; with facilities, which is helpful. People walk along. And there are beautiful eucalyptus trees here. And a place to tie up your horse if you happen to be riding up. And a picnic area. And then the trail heads on down the head that way [moves camcorder to left] and over the hill.

It’s Sunday, and this is an interesting day, so far. I woke up this morning with the strangest commotion … as if the fourth dimension were bubbling and bungling around inside my head, and all around me. As if there were confusion on the astral plane.

And as the morning progressed, I began to feel … I could only describe it as despair. And I was only too happy, as the day wore on, to come out here, into the mountains again. The minute I got out into the mountains, my heart got a little bit lighter.

But still I feel a sense of melancholy today. And I’ve run into it in some of the people I’ve met today, even. And my cat is even out of sorts. It’s the strangest day! So I was thinking, as I was sitting here: What do we do, when we feel despair? What can we do, to make things better?

And the thought that came to me was: Thy Will, not mine, Divine Mother! Thy Will, not mine! And that took a big burden off of me. It was like I didn’t have to change. It was like everything was ok. And I’m hoping to repeat that thought as I walk back down the mountain today.

I’m reminded of Saint Francis … I think he said a prayer that was similar to that …

Link: “Prayer of Saint Francis,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prayer_of_Saint_Francis ..

So, I’m wishing you a day full of hope. And if troubled times come on you, I hope this little mantra will be of as much help to you as it was to me. God bless you all! …

I’m home now. I have my cat over there. She’s looking a little less spooky than she looked this morning, thank goodness. And I’m feeling better too. I have a few words for you, about the video I just did in the mountains there …

I came back home, and took a look on the internet, and found out, interestingly enough, that there was a big radiation storm in the middle of the night, last night, and it’s just subsiding today. And then, there was an M-3 class solar flare right around midnight, Pacific Time.

I suspect hat the strange feeling in my head, and the emotional affect I’ve had today, had something to do with this astrogeophysical, muddled particle movement. (This I later dubbed protonfall: solar wind speed times solar wind density.)

It’s consoling to the left brain, to think that there’s some reason for such strong experiences that we go through. So I looked on the internet, and I found the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis. And I have to say, I was a little off the mark. It’s not really about following the Divine Will. It’s more like asking the Divine for many wonderful things.

And I’m wishing you all peaceful, settled hearts, and wonderful experiences throughout the night.

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

  • GODDESS DURGA
  • KRISHNA DAS SINGING ABOUT MAA DURGA

Dear Ones,

SONG OF THE WIND

I was at a pretty graveyard on a windy day, listening to the sound of the wind whistling through the railings in a fence there …

 

GODDESS DURGA

The sound of the wind reminded me of Goddess Durga. Here is my favorite image of her:

Image: Goddess Durga, source unknown, https://galleryofgod.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/jai-maa-durga-41.jpg ..

And here is some information about her from Wikipedia:

Durga, also identified as Adi ParashaktiDeviShaktiBhavani, Parvati, and by numerous other names, is a principal and popular form of Hindu goddess.[6][7][8] She is the warrior goddess, whose mythology centers around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity and dharma of the good.[7][9] She is the fierce form of the protective mother goddess, willing to unleash her anger against wrong, violence for liberation and destruction to empower creation.[10]” –from “Durga” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga ..

See also: “The Goddess Durga Is the Mother of the Hindu Universe,” Updated 18 September 2017,  https://www.thoughtco.com/goddess-durga-1770363 ..

KRISHNA DAS SINGING ABOUT MAA DURGA

Here is Krishna Das’ beautiful song about Maa Durga. Every time I listen carefully to this shabad, or sacred song, it brings tears to my eyes.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Meditation Walking Area in Los Angeles

I’m here at the Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Los Angeles. I’m in the meditation walking area. The minute that I got here today, I could feel in the air the protection, clear energy, and it almost felt like Mother Mary and her son  Jesus … their spirits were here on  the grounds, kind of protecting everything, and protecting everyone who comes here. It was a wonderful feeling; very different from most of Los Angeles.

So I thought I’d just show you a little bit of this walking area here, that  I’m sitting next to on a little bench. It looks a little like this: [pans] … It goes around in a circle. There are wind chimes; sometimes you can hear them … It goes around over that way [points the camcorder elsewhere] … Then it comes back on the far side. And you can take the walkway back in that direction there [points the camcorder elsewhere] and get back to the Administration Building.

A Thought from Divine Mother

But I’m back here, near the walking circle, sitting in a little chair. I was just sitting here, wondering what to say to everyone. So I thought: Well, I’ll ask Divine Mother what she might like you to know; so I did.

It was very brief, what I felt in my heart that she said. And it surprised me too. She said:

Find the beauty in life, and let it light up your heart.

That’s what Divine Mother asked me to tell you today. I hope your day is full of beauty. Talk to you later.

Team Dark . Invocation to Transform Darkness to Light . by Alice B. Clagett

    • Divine Mother

Dear Ones,

Here’s a little bit about a Team Dark attack, a little about the goddess Kali, and a tiny but very effective invocation to transform darkness to Light. There’s a Summary after the video; text not in the video is in green font

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I’m on my way home from my walk today, and it’s getting on towards dark. As I was coming down the mountain, I had what they commonly call a Team Dark attack … which is another way of saying: A chance to increase a person’s light quotient, you know? It’s a chance to observe the dark in ourselves; a chance to pack in the Light.

So I composed a little song; it’s a very short song. It’s for those who worship Kali. I think I got this right: Kali is the goddess of destruction, right? Fire and destruction? More properly put: ‘Kali’ means ‘time’ and represents the death of the ego.

Some people are very wicked about worshipping Kali. They feel it’s an evil thing to do. Kali is sometimes thought of in connection with black magic … That is to say: our infinite co-creative powers, hedged round by [and limited by] Ego.

And in India, it’s not like that. You can worship Kali; it’s ok. She’s just one aspect of the Divine.  So but, here’s my song for those that have that misinterpretation of Kali. It’s a tune that you all may already know. The word ji at the end of the song means ‘respected Soul’. Here’s the song:

Song: Kali Is a Devotee

Kali is a devotee
Of Divine Mother ji.  x3

For the fire in you all, may it light the brightest light in your being.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would talk to you for a moment about a few words from the great yogi Patanjali … from the Aphorisms of Patanjali, with commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood …

Citation: “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali,” translated with a commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, copyright 1953, 1981 by The Vedanta Society of Southern California ..

Stories by Alice: Thoughts on Ways to Attain Liberation

  • bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion … playing kirtan, feeling one’s heart
  • jnana yoga … attainment of knowledge or wisdom. Perhaps Theosophy and the writings of Arthur E. Powell fall into this category?
  • concentration on an object
  • concentration on nothingness, or ‘no object’ (the path of advaita)
  • chanting God’s name: Hara Hara Hara Hara Hara Hara Haree … a chant for abundance

it had to do with the ways to attain liberation. And of course there are many ways to attain liberation. For instance, my favorite way to practice to become more spiritual is through the yoga of devotion, bhakti yoga.

I was just at the Shaktifest in Joshua Tree, California, this last weekend; and that is what the people there were doing, with an emphasis on devotion to Divine Mother and the Sacred Feminine.

Then later in the year they have Bhaktifest; that is a festival of devotion to God; it has both male and female energies of devotion. It is a little bit more masculine, I feel, than Shaktifest. So that is one thing.

You can play kirtan, or sacred music … that is a way of devotion. You can feel your heart; that is what I have been doing since the year 2000. You can take the path of jnana yoga

I am out in the desert, in Joshua Tree, and there is a raven soaring by on the updrafts from the warm airs of evening. A big confrontation between two ravens ended not too long ago. It was very talkative, very loud, and it ended with a standoff. [Looks up.] Here is a raven just enjoying the beautiful breezes of sunset.

So jnana yoga has to do with knowledge. Some people pursue that path. In fact, I would be inclined to say that the School of Theosophy and the writings of Arthur Powell have more to do with jnana and the attainment of wisdom. (I might be wrong about that.)

Some people say that this is one of the hardest paths of yoga. But I think, for people that are suited to it, it is perfect, really perfect. There may not be too many people like that, but for those people, it is really great.

I like jnana yoga also. I am one of those unusual people that like a number of different ways of attempting to attain God consciousness, or liberation. Actually, I am interested in almost all the paths.

Then there is concentration …he art of concentrating … The yogis use this word in a particular way. They are concentrating on a particular object, say, and just watching it until they attain oneness with it.

And then another way to do it is by concentrating on nothingness … no object.

It is a rather arcane science that you can learn, step by step, by reading that book.

One of the ways that I like to seek liberation is by chanting God’s name. Years ago, I did that all the time. For about ten years, I chanted God’s name. I was using a mantra that had to do with abundance. It was of the sacred names of God from India, from the Hindu tradition. And it went like this …

Meditation for Abundance of Wealth or Love
Chanted (But Not Created) by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
16 May 2016

 

Hara, hara, hara, hara, hara, hara, haree 

You use your navel point energy, and in the world it creates something for you … what you want: Abundance, or love, or whatever it is. I will do it again. I am pushing my navel point in, on most of the syllables. It goes like this …

Hara, hara, hara, hara, hara, hara, haree  (x2)

I learned this chant from Yogi Bhajan of 3HO https://www.3ho.org/ many years ago. As to whether he has copyrighted it, or whether it was an ancient chant, I have not been able to determine.

. . . . .

And so I would do that. Just in my own consciousness, I would ‘churn the ethers’, as they say, with that all day long … every time I could think of it; especially during drive time, if it was local and not on the freeways, when I was standing in line, and whenever I was not doing a work that involved the logical mind.

I like that way … using a mantra … too. I do not know whether that is in Patanjali, though.

The Trouble with the Yogic Superpowers

  • Patanjali offers ways to attain over 100 yogic superpowers.
  • In the fine print, we learn that, if we attain the yogic superpowers and then don’t go on to total alignment with God consciousness, then some really gruesome things will happen to us.
  • Once a person gets yogic superpowers, he must figure out how to give them back to God somehow.
  • The theory I learned (not from Patanjali, though) is that the yogic superpowers are just paving stones on the way to God consciousness, God awareness, Awakening … what we’re doing now.
  • So we have to know the warning signs of having the yogic superpowers, and then we have to humbly offer them in service to God. That’s the important thing.

There was a list, in “The Yogic Aphorisms of Patanjali,” of the ways to attain the ‘superpowers’ … the yogic powers. The interesting thing was, it gave the list, and then it gave the list, it gave over 100 superpowers, and then you learned that if you attained the superpowers and then did not go on to total devotion to God or to alignment with God consciousness, then some very gruesome things would happen to you.

So I always thought, after that, I was glad I read that book very carefully, because then I did not go after those superpowers, which are a bit of a bother; they create more trouble than they are worth. And once you get them, you have to figure out how to give them back to God somehow.

Anyway, with regard to the list of superpowers, this is the theory that I learned (but not from Patanjali): I learned that the superpowers are just something like paving stones on the way to liberation or God consciousness, God Awareness, Awakening … what we are doing now. We have to know the warning signs of having the superpowers, and then we have to humbly offer them in service to God. That is the important thing.

On Using Drugs to Attain Yogic Superpowers

  • drugs as a way to develop yogic superpowers,
  • hallucinogens used in ancient rituals
  • drugs contraindicated for the person training to be a spiritual adept
  • drugs is that they offer yogic superpowers before a person is spiritually developed enough to deal with them
  • one good example: psychic murder
  • thuggee cult in Ancient India
  • walk-in lore
  • kama rupa lore
  • fate of disincarnate thuggees since 2012

I think that, in India, where Patanjali lived, there were a lot of people who were interested in developing the superpowers a long time ago … long, long ago. And still today, that is the case. And so this list of ways of developing the superpowers is pretty important.

The very first thing on the list is drugs … I am assuming maybe hallucinogenics, or whatever; I am not sure what. But what I have heard about hallucinogenics is that they were used in many ancient cultures, to open the doorway to the astral realm, for instance.

And when an initiate was properly prepared, with fasting and ritual and so forth, with the support of his or her community, then they were fairly successful, I feel, as a way of ushering in rites of passage … say, for manhood, or womanhood, or whatever it should be.

But for the person that is training to be a spiritual adept, the use of drugs is, in my opinion, not indicated. Sometimes people use a drug, unknowingly, in their youth, and learn about this kind of spiritual attainment where a person becomes one with God, or a mystic. And then they go on to lifelong study of spiritual things. In that case it is not such a bad thing … to have tried something that led to something really good.

My path was otherwise: When I was born, I already had a feeling of being a mystic. And by the time I was five years of age, I was very strongly into that understanding that God is One with me, and that the natural world is merely a manifestation of God’s loving care.

What I feel, very strongly, is that drugs are not the way to step out there, into the realm of seeking liberation. The problem of drugs is that they offer these superpowers before a person is spiritually developed enough to know how to deal with them.

What will happen then, is that mistakes can be made. For instance, a person may use their superpowers out of sensory attraction … out of the desire for money, or the desire for lots of women (or the desire for lots of men). I think those are the main attractions: The desire to accumulate lots of goods, and the desire to have lots of sexual liaisons. I might have missed a few … Oh! … the desire for great power: A person could use the yogic techniques because they want power over lots of people. [laughs]

So then what happens is, people do the drugs; they get the superpowers, and then they have these temptations that lead them into the realm of massive karmic problems. And so then it takes lifetimes to get out of that again.

One good example is the use of drugs to attain superpowers that allow a person to kill other people and go undetected. In ancient India, there was a group called the thuggees. In India, everyone is respected, no matter what their occupation; so these were considered great spiritual adepts and the strongest among them was given the name of ‘guru’.

In our culture we would call them gangsters or brigands or roaming gangs of thieves that would mercilessly prey upon travelers and throw them down wells, and all kinds gruesome things described in “Wikipedia.”

They were treated with respect, and they had attained these superpowers. Apparently, piecing it together, what happened was that they would practice to walk into other physical forms, from the astral form. Then when they died, they passed on, into their astral form. Then they would try to seize upon the drugged body a person that was young and healthy, and displace the Soul and consciousness and Awareness there, and step into that body …. It is called a ‘walk-in‘ … and take over that body from that other person … steal the body.

The story goes, that this was successful. I consider that it was probably not successful; it is just a story … because the astral body of such a person, who had spent their whole life murdering and thieving … would most likely be what they call a kama rupa. Kama rupa is the body of a depraved human being who has lost the conscience that characterizes the nobility of humankind. What I have heard, from the texts of the School of Theosophy is that the kama rupa is like a very tough, gangster desire elemental that can survive for a very long time on the astral plane.

Typically, when we pass on, the best thing is for the desire elemental to detach and go away and slowly disintegrate, I hear. But in the case of the kama rupa, what survives on the astral plane is the base animal instincts and the feral passions of what was once a very gnarly human being.

In my opinion, what they call ‘walk-ins’ in the psychic lore are really the walking in of the kama rupa of these ‘depraved’ individuals … as the description goes, in the texts of the School of Theosophy. It is a pretty cool text: ‘depraved’ … depraved individuals who have lost their Souls through their actions in the world.

And the kama rupa is what steps into, and displaces, the Soul of the person who is ‘walked into’. So, what the followers of such a ‘walked into’ person might worship … if it is a spiritual leader who has been ‘walked into’ … because it sound a lot like their leader, who passed on (or maybe a living spiritual leader) … is really just the worst qualities … the most animal qualities of a thuggee … a person who walked sideways of the law for their entire life, and disregarded all the conventions regarding kindness and convention, and legal niceties such as ‘do not kill’ … ‘honor your father and your mother’. All that stuff goes by the wayside.

By the time they get to the ‘thuggee cult’ stage, after many, many incarnations, people are pretty much ready to give up the Soul altogether. I doubt that happens with many people; but it could happen. And it could also happen that we would reincarnate in the normal manner, in a very difficult situation with a lot of polarity in it, and then attempt to resolve that in a new incarnation.

What has been happening recently, is that these thuggee cult individuals, as they are ready to come back into incarnation on Earth, are not finding the suitable Light Quotient for them to be able to come back; and that is because their Light Quotient is not so bright, and everybody on Earth is brightening up quite a bit.

So they are roiling around, and turmoiling around, and gangstering around, on the astral plane, here and there, whenever they can … whenever a person manifests some kind of yearning for a physical experience that is similar to their own inclinations. On these they descend in furious hunger, though only on the astral plane, and only for a moment. In such moments, 

So it is kind of dangerous, right now, to go out on the astral plane, especially when you are sensing emotions of hatred or anger or extreme fear … because they will be waiting for you, you know? Even now, they are playing about … [zooms up above head] … up above the head, up there. In the eighth to the tenth chakra, they are zinging about, attempting mischief, attempting to produce people’s astral plays, and just generally causing havoc in the eighth to tenth dimensions.

I do not know how they get an ‘assist’ up there that high … because, in my opinion, their dimensionality is not that good. Maybe it is the superpowers that they have gained, that allow them to do that. It is a big bother. It is what is clearing from the world right now: That energy up through there … [zooms up above head] … in the pranic column above the head.

It is kind of cool too: We are the explorers, and we are finding out all about all of this.

Optimizing Timelines to Avoid Using Yogic Superpowers for Worldly Gain

  • Timeline optimization may help, if temporarily sidetracked by using drugs: Spirit to Team! Optimize Timelines! For the All, through Free Will!

The thing about drugs is, they can give you superpowers, but they can throw you into that category called the ‘thuggee cult’ category. And then there is karma to pay … payback. [signs]

Maybe if you optimize your timelines …

Spirit to Team!
Optimize My Timelines!
For the All, through Free Will!

Try that, if you feel you have gone sideways for a little bit, and you want to come back straight and steady on the spiritual path. Or if you just took a left turn to look at the view [laughs] and you want to go on, that might get you there right away. So there is that.

For the Skeptic: A ‘What-If’ Exercise

  • What if this is the time of the All? If so, we might think about how things might change, and how all beings might benefit, and how there might be plenty for everybody too.

Even if your spiritual path, I feel, is not about drugs at all, but rather about all these other possibilities, like bhakti yoga, jnana yoga, concentration … whatever it is … if you find yourself tempted to put your group, or your person, or your family first … as has been done, for long ages, in the past … the thing to also consider is that this is the time of the All. This is the time when we join in harmony and unity with all beings everywhere, in the upliftment of this Universe.  And so what worked in the past, what served in the past, in the near future will not be working, and will not be serving.

It is just something to think about, as we continue on with what we are doing … to think about how things might change, and how all beings might benefit, and how there might be plenty for everybody, too. Kind of cool!

We could do a ‘what if’: Clearly, things are just the way they are, but what if they should change? Then, how would it be? And what would I do? What would my family, or my group do?

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