Dear Ones,


I have clairly found that Intersex genetic and sexual features (that is, hermaphroditism) may be linked to a variant of antisocial personality disorder. I term this variant ‘Intersex Antisocial Personality Disorder’; that is a name I have coined for it. Continue reading

Uplifting and Nurturing Humankind vs Acting Out of Subconscious Symbolism . by Alice B. Clagett

” … behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.” — Matthew 2:13 (KJV)


Dear Ones,

Here is a story about a subconscious metaphor and how it might be acted out both symbolically and in the physical realm.

The metaphor has to do with one-upmanship and capitalism. The emotional energy conveyed by the metaphor is the negative opposite of mothering, fathering, and nurturing, the qualities that sustain life on Earth.

During times of social unrest … such as that in which we find ourselves today … the energy described below flares up everywhere within society. It was so in the days of Caligula, whose reign was characterized by cruelty, sadism, and sexual perversion. And it is so today, here in America, as we face the challenge that the USSR faced in the late 1980s, as its republics (similar to our States) vied more and more with the central government.

At times such as this it is crucially important for each of us to align with the energies of mothering and nurturing, rather than with the powers of chaos and anarchy. In that way we can help our governments through the growing crisis.

On a more positive note, we Lightworkers feel that the current time is one of Ascension, and of the beginning of New Life on New Earth. Instead of dwelling on the momentary confusion of the changeup, we envision the vast power of the Incoming Light, the Light of Christ consciousness, to transform the dross of this world to a more humane social order, one that values and uplifts the lives of the unborn and the newly born, whether their fathers acknowledge and protect them or no.

In this age, children are imperiled by the very energies described below. Let us stand up for the children of today, and protect the weak and helpless from the snares of Satan. It is we workaday folk, we retired people, we children of God but a few years older, who are set to the task of protecting the newly born, just as did Saint Joseph, though to his knowledge, the child was not his own. He must have been the talk of the town, but he stood by his fiancee, the Virgin Mary, This act of courage saw the unfoldment of untold good, down through the centuries.

Let us stand by the example of Saint Joseph, and set the world on a new path of higher consciousness in the coming times.

For those who engage in the obverse, negative energies described below, let us pray that Mother Mary intercede for their Souls, that after death they may be saved from the fires of hell, which offer far more torment than that they may know in their earthly life.

This story is entirely fictional. There is a Summary after the video …



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

I have a story to tell you which illustrates subconscious symbolism … which has been a topic I have often talked about in years past … and how subconscious symbolism, especially in the form of metaphor … becomes a picture in the subconscious mind, that then may be acted out in real life, in one way or another.

First I would like to explain to you, this story is entirely fictional; but it is very helpful in understanding how the subconscious mind influences action in the world, through metaphor and symbolism.

In this story there is a person who imagines, for quite some years, that there are people speaking to him, on the psychic plane, through their own gut brains or subconscious minds. And the thing that they are muttering is a slang word … and it is off-color. It is three words. The first word is ‘F—‘. It is a profane word. And the next word is ‘you’ … and then ‘in the’ … and the next word is a kind of off-color word; it starts with a ‘b’ … ‘b—–‘. And the next word is ‘hole’.

I have talked about this metaphor priorly; it is an extremely potent metaphor in the English language right now, especially amongst the younger set. Sorry I cannot just speak it in one line because this is a general audience line and I just do not like to shock anyone.

Let’s say this person kept on hearing this phrase muttered over and over again. And then, at the end of a long time, they found out that there were some people of their acquaintance that had suddenly taken up rectal intercourse. Now rectal intercourse is a visualization and acting out, on the physical plane, of that very set of words that I just explained in an oblique manner to you.

So it could be that the group of people that were subconsciously chanting that, some of them, fell into the acting out because of the undercurrent of symbolic sound that was going on in their subconscious minds.

Then another thing happened in this fictional story, and that is: At the end of a certain length of time … some years … there was a person who passed on; they had had, let’s say, oodles of money. And then let’s just hypothesize that person may have been involved, in some manner, with this group of people that were doing the chant.

The person passed on, and then it was discovered that the estate had dwindled to a tiny fraction of the amount that it used to be. So all the heirs to the estate had been subjected … in a more symbolic manner … to this subconscious slang that was going on; they had been ‘f—- in the b—– hole’. That had happened to them, in a monetary sense.

And to other people it had apparently happened through acting out in the physical body.

If such a scene were to occur, it would be a powerful example of the influence of the subconscious mind, through symbolism and metaphor, on action in the world. So you can add this one to all the other stories about metaphor and acting out that I used to talk about in my blog.

I wish you all the most pleasant of days, and lots of discoveries of the subconscious, because the more we become aware of the subconscious mind, the less influenced we are to act out irrationally.

Have a wonderful day! I hope the air where you live is not at all as smoky as the air in the mountains here.

In love, light and joy
I Am of the Stars

Black Tantra Warnings: Will You Choose Apocalypse or New Life on New Earth? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 15 July 2020

Dear Ones,

The energy of Black Tantra is rising up in heavy, dark waves in the cities of Earth right now, as it has been doing during the last few years of the Ascension process.

In choosing for Ascension, we choose the upward flowing kundalini energy; in choosing not to ascend, we chose the downward coursing kundalini, which leads to nightmare realm experiences in the dreamtime and physical planes.

Which will you choose? It can be Apocalypse, or it can be the Second Coming of Christ, the experience of New Life on New Earth. The choice is yours.

I have updated the Black Tantra information in these two blogs …

Hellworld Scenes versus Personal Empowerment . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 4 April 2018

    • Courage on Recognizing Hellworld Aspects of Life on Earth
    • The Hellworld of Societal Expectations
    • New Creation as a Scary Event

Dear Ones,


This morning I slept late … always a bad thing, as far as I am concerned. On waking, I had a  nightmare of a demonized man enticing me sexually, on the astral plane, and then cursing me as I woke up. Lately this dream has been happening from time to time, usually if I wake up at 5 am or 5:30 am, but today it happened as I woke up around 7 am.


I find when I get up earlier, it does not happen. So it may have something to do with the ‘demons of the 2-hour intervals’ that I read about in Buddhist literature. Possibly the demon of the 5 am or 5:30 am time frame has to do with it?

The below is “Chapter 8, Recognizing the Work of Demons,” from “Master Chi I: Dhyana, ” “Meditation Manual” … http://www.abuddhistlibrary.com/Buddhism/C%20-%20Zen/Ancestors/Master%20Chih%20-%20I/Meditation%20Manual/Chapter%20Eight,%20Recognizing%20the%20Work%20of%20Demons.htm ..

Here is the table of contents where I found the above link …  http://www.abuddhistlibrary.com/Buddhism/J%20-%20Navigation%20Pages%20and%20A%20List%20of%20Books/Navigation%20Pages/Lists%20of%20Files/Ancestors.html#23 Search for: Chapter 8, Recognizing the Work of Demons

I read there that, of the spirits that are ghosts or demons, one might expect to encounter oxen from 1 to 3 am … which sounds to me to be relatively benign, compared to tigers from 3 to 5 am. The 5 to 7 am time frame sounds all right too: rabbits and deer … but that may mean more sexual urges are encountered at that time? The time frame 7 to 9 am … dragons and turtles … sounds a little iffy to me; what if one encounters a dragon, rather than a turtle? Is that good or bad, I wonder? And so on.


To get back to the dream this morning, it segued into the “Donkey Song” person I wrote about recently … the good looking 50s man who apparently suicided in November or December 2017 by drugging up and walking into the ocean.

Link: “Donkey Song,” a Story and Songs by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 6 February 2018; published on 7 February 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8j6 ..

I had been following him, off and on, on the astral plane, as I was concerned that his Soul should find rest. I had the feeling that a person who dies while drugged up may not ‘wake up’ to the astral realm after death for a while.

Apparently this was true, as when I contacted his ghost, it was very groggy, feeling his body being swept around in the ocean currents. Noticing where a fish had bitten it here, or a rock had scratched the shoulder there. In other words, still very attached to body consciousness … what the Theosophists call the state of being ‘an earthbound spirit’.

Then later, I was surprised to find the man I thought had suicided alive and well, but oddly attired and passing by me not recognizing me, although we were distantly acquainted …

Link: “The Stalker: Encounter with a Multiple Personality?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 9 July 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dyb ..

It must, I thought, have been another man who suicided, or maybe just an astral story not based in reality. Is that not often the way with astral stories? One never knows whether or not they represent real life.


I have been watching a Russian mystery series called “Anna Detective” on Amazon videos recently. Anna is a psychically gifted young woman who helps the local police department solve murder mysteries by contacting the ghosts of those slain. I have found the series fascinating, both with regard to the Russian attitude towards psychic abilities, the Russian countryside and language, and the manners of the people of days gone by.

Link: “Anna-detektiv,” on IMDB … http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6226710/ … The plot mentioned below has to do with Episode 15, “Two Officers”

The other night I saw an episode of “Anna Detective” in which a young man who, on the day he anticipates being married in secret, is drugged and dies of the drug. Then Anna sees his ghost walking around in a dazed state, unable to understand that it has died. In the video, the explanation is given that people who die while asleep take some time, in the ghostly state, to ‘wake up’ on the astral plane as ghosts.


This would agree with the clair visions I have been having of the man who apparently suicided through drugs last winter. In my own clair experience, ghosts can often be awoken and asked to turn to the light within a month or two. In some cases, it may take maybe 6 months, on the outside, and I am hoping the same for the suicide that I am clair following.

Of course, there are cases of ghosts that linger on for centuries, because of the trauma of the death scenario, and because family or community legends strengthen the image of the death trauma scene that hovers in the locale of the incident. In those cases, though, my hope is that what is seen, over and over again, may be a remnant of the ghost … in other words, the Soul-wounding audiovisual clip only … that may be left behind when the Soul itself returns to the mental plane for Soul learning, prior to its next journey to the physical plane in a new incarnation. My proposal, put forth priorly, is that this AV clip will eventually transform through the Light, and resolve back into the Soul field from which it has temporarily been cut off.


To get back on topic, in this morning’s dream, which was fragmented and very sad, I had the feeling that the agent, the person who has been harassing me with the sex-hate morning vision may be the ghost of the suicide, and that he may be still obsessed by another person (whether living or dead, I do not know, but for sure, a spiritual adept who devoted his life to the black arts … what the Theosophists might call a Black Magician). And that the link between this Black Magician and the drowned man was a fearsome astral being … a negative alien astral being … a ‘Big Bad’, as they say.

The ghost of the drowned man then had a vision of himself as misshapen square or lump of flesh, about 5 inches on a side. The ghost imagined one corner of this lump was his bottom, and the other end was his face. Then the ghost said it was inside a big female fish, and could feel it swimming around in the water.

Yaargh! This will teach me not to get up at 7 am! I hope I never have such a vision again!

It is a good lesson for all of us still in body regarding suicide by drugs and death while asleep, though. I would say, if possible, it might be best to pass on ‘with our boots on’ and our eyes wide open.


I saw a holy candle in the dollar store a week ago. It was dedicated to Santissima Muerte … ‘very saintly Death’ … and had a curse on the back, in Spanish, that the person who had killed a loved one of a family should find no rest, and be plagued with this and that. It was the first such holy candle I have seen, and, to my mind, it bode ill. I felt it had to do with the drug culture, and an upsurge of a noospheric energy to do with infatuation with death and dying. I checked in Wikipedia and found there is such a cult of death …

Link: “Santa Muerte,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Muerte ..

I feel the winter suicide vision may have had to do with this upsurging energy of infatuation with death, which is now clearing from New Earth.


It should also be clear, for adherents of the Physical Form Heresy …

Link: “The Physical Form Heresy,” by Alice B. Clagett, Published on 17 May 2017; revised on 11 October 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7cY ..

… that the cult of death utterly destroys this beautiful human form, which houses the very breath of God, our own Spirits or Souls, which are fashioned in His image. Who on Earth would want to find themselves a lump of decaying meat in the belly of a she-sea monster? Which is surely akin to the consequences of devotion to such an unrealistic infatuation.

The above image, of Jonah and the Whale, is a Biblical story about a good man who was eaten by a fish. After 3 days, though, he was able to get out of the fish, alive …

A few days ago, I was struck by a song I heard, called “Torre de Babel” … and another song called “Calendar Girl. ” Then just yesterday I saw a trailer for a new movie called “Annihilation.”

I took a look at the lyrics and the videos today. I feel they have a bearing on the issue of facing the hellworlds … such as the dream scene of being obsessed by the ‘Big Bads’ and caught and slowly digested by a big female fish …

Courage on Recognizing Hellworld Aspects of Life on Earth

The first video, a song by David Basbal, Wisin and Yandel entitled “Torre de Babel,” points to the hellworld qualities of some strands of energy in the noosphere, and issues a call to action, to overcome them. Note the power-ensconced actions of the people in the video, and the darkness of the scenes …

Video: “David Bisbal, Wisin & Yandel – Torre De Babel,” by DavidBisbelVEVO, 26 June 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y6nl7s6V3s ..

Here are the English lyrics …

The Hellworld of Societal Expectations

The second video, “Calendar Girl,” to my mind, offers an unthinking, superficial view of reality, a little like that of the underground community in the sardonic Apocalyptic film “A Boy and His Dog.” To my mind, these involve the point of view that adherence to societal expectations brings happiness. To me, though, unthinking adherence to a superficial view of reality is a sort of hellworld existence, as the ‘boy’ found in the underground community in the film “A Boy and His Dog” …

New Creation as a Scary Event

I also saw a trailer of a new movie yesterday that puts forward the notion that “New Creation” is really a nightmare realm with lots of people-eating monsters in it. What a hellworld twist it gives to the notion of New Life on New Earth! …

Video: Trailer for the movie “Annihilation” … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=109&v=89OP78l9oF0 ..


Yet these videos represent the experience of many people on Earth this year, as the people wake up to what life on Earth has, till now, been. We have been a ‘Slave Planet’ …

Link: “Dark Night of the Soul . Slave Planet Blues!” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 2 June 2015; revised 9 July 2017; transcribed on 15 November 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6sa ..

Thus for many, there is a hardwired ‘short circuit’ taking place … They think that New Life on New Earth is a hellworld scenario, as in the case of the movie “Annihilation.”

That is because they are waking up … as the ghost of our winter suicide will soon wake up … as the singers in “Torre de Babel” have awakened … to the choices that they now have. To the power of their own free will. To their ability to co-create a world with no nightmares in it.


The first glimpse, on awakening, of where we have been is the cause of the distressing nightmares and movies. As we turn our eyes to where we now are, we will find all the joys, all the blessings, and the New Hope of this New Dawn. The monsters have all slipped away from this outlier planet, this beautiful blue Water World. All that remains is the fading memory of their once-upon-a-time presence here.

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

Knocking on Heaven’s Door . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 1 January 2018
Previously titled: Knock Knock Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door . by Bob Dylan . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Video: “Bob Dylan – Knockin’ on heaven’s door with lyrics on screen,” by John CI, 16 June 2013 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w5MSAUbK08 … COMMENT: Say, where is that place at the beginning of the video? Is that the blue Pacific across from Neptune’s Net on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH)?

For me personally, the Ascension process sometimes seems a little like dying … At the very least, the death of my ego, of my existence as a personality. I mean, what is on the other side of that door?

In the last week or two I have bounced around all over 4D … from the seventh level of hell to the seventh level of heaven. And everywhere in between. Seems like every time I get up there around seventh heaven, I fall into some sort of in-group, out-group mentality. Like I need to identify with a Soul group in order to barge through the ‘glass ceiling’ between 4D and 5D. Like I am sunk in the dunk unless I team up with these or those. Go figure!

And then there is the consciousness grid about being led by someone in the know, about marching under the flag of a leader, about believing in this or that … Is Divine Mother my all in all? Or is it simply the All? Or may I rely on my Ascension team of Light beings? Am I damned if I do? Am I damned if I do not? Is it ok to let this chaos of ideas flow through my mental mind and gut brain? Will I get through this? Will I be left behind?

It is true, the way seems dark, but in those moments of brilliant intuition I have a certain knowledge that my Soul, in all its sacred majesty, knows the path. I do not need to believe in anything …

Better, I am guessing, not to believe in anything. Open the door of my perceptions, and greet the Unknown. No matter what, my feet are standing right here on Mother Earth.

Maybe I will take a drive up PCH today. Maybe when I knock, the mystery of All that is will whisper in my ear!

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

On Mastering Desire . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 6 December 2017

  • KAMA-MANAS … The relationship of Desire to Mind
  • NEGATIVE EMOTIONS PREVENT CO-CREATION OF FIFTH DIMENSIONAL REALITY … How the negative emotions of lust, anger, greed, pride, and attachment to the senses, are off-kilter with the fabric of the Universe. Becoming aware of these negative emotions allows us to co-create a truer reality known as the fifth dimension. The fabric of this Universe is woven of Love (which is Space), and Light (which is Time), and Joy (which is Awareness).
  • CHOOSING POSITIVE EMOTIONS SO AS TO NAVIGATE TO THE HIGHER ASTRAL PLANES … Hell worlds are a function of human emotions. Choosing to feel simple positive emotions such as appreciation, gratitude, and joy will get us through the nightmare realms (hell worlds) of the fourth dimension.
  • ON USING PRANAYAM, THE SCIENCE OF BREATH, TO OVERCOME NEGATIVE EMOTIONS … Keeping in mind that negatively aspected clair chatter often emanates from the untrained Lower Mental Bodies of those near and dear to us.
    • The Nature of Desire
    • Awareness of Negative Desire Is Essential to Developing Astral Plane Navigational Skills

Dear Ones,

I would like to talk to you today about Desire and the place where many of us are right now in the Awakening process.

This is about the nature and importance of Desire (which is the function of the astral body) in our current process of mastering the fourth dimension (i.e., the astral plane) and coming into our true power as human beings in the fifth dimension …


Over the holidays, I was reading  “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” a book compiled by Arthur E. Powell, which, as I understand it, consists mainly of channeling of the work of the ascended master Djwhal Khul.

The part I was reading was so deep that I only read a couple of pages on the function of the astral body …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … pages 23, 24 and 26

I am sorry to say that, due to copyright restrictions, I cannot quote this passage, which I feel is a very important one. If you are able to obtain a copy of the book and take a look at the three pages cited above, I feel certain it will deepen your understanding on the topics I have presented below.

For me, reading the passage acted as a ‘springboard’ into a merging of the new Ascension knowledge with the older tradition of Theosophy. So you will find below references to the passage in Powell’s book, with my own thoughts on how Theosophical lore represents an astral-realm bridge of understanding, that may help today’s very secular-oriented society deal with the Ascension symptoms and clair abilities they are beginning to experience.

We human beings here on Earth are passing from the merely physical and lower mental realms into a deeper understanding of the astral realms, preparatory to awakening to the fifth dimension, which, for most beings on Earth today, is unexplored territory, depending, as it does, on expansion of the human energy field beyond the causal realm.

The topics described in the above passage are of interest right now because knowing more about the astral body helps us to understand our journey at this moment. I will briefly glance over some of the topics presented by Powell …

The astral body has to do with Desire. Another word for Desire is the word Kâma. The notion of Kâma includes every sort of feeling, and not just thirst, or hunger, or desire to have sex. The Bible calls it ‘the lust of the flesh’ …

15 “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” — 1 John 2 (KJV – public domain)

So as we human beings are journeying into a deeper Awareness of the astral plane, we are, in fact, encountering those emotions.

According to Powell, it is Kâma that binds us to the Duality Play, the world of sensory phenomena. Powell refers to the our animal nature as the ‘ape and the tiger’. The immediate context of this quote from Tennyson is …

“…Arise and fly
The reeling Faun, the sensual feast;
Move upward, working out the beast,
And let the ape and tiger die.”
–from Citation:In Memoriam,” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, public domain

So then Powell goes on to speak about how the quality of desire is knit together with the quality of mind, or Manas, in a human being. Theosophists often refer to the union of Desire and Mind as the driving force of intelligence, Kâma-Manas.

I feel that, typically in men, you will find a greater ratio of Manas, or mind, in this balance, and typically in women, you will find a greater ratio of Kâma, or Desire. The two together create the emotional Awareness of human beings, without which we would never accomplish anything in the world. We could sit, and think … The Thinker, you know? … all day long, but without Desire, nothing would ever come forth into reality.


Now, one definition of the fifth dimension is that we will all realize our innate ability as eternal Souls to become co-creators of reality. In the astral plane that we are engaging in right now, and becoming aware of, that quality of co-creation exists, but because it is only semi-aware, because the Awareness is stifled by the negative kilter of the emotions … what we were talking about: lust, greed, pride or ‘conceit’, anger or rage, and attachment (the ‘five thieves’ as they say in India: kaam, lobh, ahankar, krodh, moh) (1) … these negatively tilted renditions of the basic fabric of Space and Time and Awareness, which is Love and Light and Joy … this slight negative kilter creates a kind of unawareness in us, as true Awareness is of Love and Light and Joy.

So, when we engage in these emotions, we become relatively unaware, and consequently the reality that we create is an untrue, off-kilter version of what is. In the Christian aethos, in the Christian tradition, this off-kilter world expresses itself as a gradation of Light … from hellworlds, through Purgatory, on into the Light of Heaven.


Why is there this difference, this stratification of the astral plane? Because a being, as it begins to realize what it truly is, rises in vibration in the fourth dimension, from the depths of the hellworlds to the highest reaches of heaven.

How does it do this? Through the emotions. Years ago, Tom Kenyon (2), channeling the Hathors and the Hathor Archives, wrote that the emotion of gratitude, and the simple emotion of appreciation, would be what saved us through this process … what would save us from the nightmare realms of the fourth dimension. And I agree to that.

Peggy Black (3), who is his student, also mentions that gratitude is the thing that we need. That word is what gets us a discount on her courses, and that feeling is what gets us through the fourth dimension with ease and grace. And I agree completely with all of that. We can overcome the negativeness of our emotions by simply thinking about gratitude.


One of the things that prevent us from expressing positive emotions is the feeling that we are not safe. Matt Kahn (4) has done quite an interesting video on this just recently, about how we can feel safe.

And his notion about that is, that for every unsafe emotion that we experience, including the list mentioned above … if I feel jealous, for instance, what we can say … if I understand him correctly … is, “I feel safe to be aware that I feel jealous at this moment.”

We could, as I understand it, use this same technique for every negative emotion that we feel. If I feel angry, enraged, whatever it is, what I could say is, “I feel safe to be aware that I feel angry at this moment.”

And by placing this positive tilt on the negative emotion, we can come through this with grace and ease. We can come through this well.


Yogi Bhajan, of 3HO, once gave a lecture on how desires arise automatically in us, and how pranayama, the science of the breath, helps us develop the personality and hone our intellect by expanding the aura, for the sake of prosperity, projection, and personality. For more on pranayama, see …

To get back to Matt Kahn, as I recall, he has also spoken recently about getting through this process of Awakening to the astral plane breath by breath … of slowing the breath and relaxing the body when we feel we have been attacked by others on the astral plane. So by becoming aware of our breathing, we can overcome the negative emotions, and also stop negative clairaudient chatter by not reacting as anticipated by any negative clair ‘sender’.

Keeping in mind that this sort of clair chatter often emanates from the untrained Lower Mental Bodies of those near and dear to us.


From this whole discussion, I would like to present just two facts …

The Nature of Desire

One is that Desire, in itself, is not a bad thing. If you imagine that a thought is a car, then Desire is like the gasoline that allows the car to go to the place we have in mind. In the same way, if we have a thought about co-creating the new reality, Desire is the power that expresses this thought as physical reality. So Desire, in itself, is not a bad thing. It is a necessary thing for us, as co-creators of reality.

Awareness of Negative Desire Is Essential to Developing Astral Plane Navigational Skills

And on the other hand, Awareness of negative Desire is essential to this process that we are going through now, because without it, we cannot rise to the fifth dimension, which is defined as a state of supreme joy, and love, and Light. So in order for that to happen, we have to become aware of when we are not feeling that way. And so, to create the true reality, we have to overcome desires that are not true.

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