Dear Ones,

There is an effect that takes place similar to that of people in Placemarker timelines failing to recognize family, friends, and acquaintances in the latters’ Awareness timelines. This effect, however, has to do with multidimensionality rather than multitemporality. It goes like this …

A Lightworker has strong positive energy of love; that is to say, fourth dimensional positive, the energy of the heart chakra when it exhibits unconditional love. A Darkworker, on the other hand, has strong negative energy of hatred; that is to say, fourth dimensional negative, the energy of the heart chakra when it exhibits unconditional hatred.

In the Lightworker’s Awareness timeline, when he or she meets a Darkworker also in their Awareness timeline, the dimensional disparity creates a barrier made of 1- or 2-foot-thick ‘air’, solid as ice, between the Lightworker’s physical body and the physical body of the Darkworker.

So the Lightworker will see the Darkworker, and vice versa, but the energetic barrier between them will prevent their interaction. I myself, as a Lightworker, experience a feeling of deep foreboding when such ‘brushes with the Dark’ occur.

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: THE ZEBRA-STRIP SPANDEX TRANSGENDER WOMAN IN STILETTO HEELS

I recall one such instance that occurred on 29 May 2016, or thereabouts, on the physical plane. I was one of the co-chairs of a Rumi poetry meetup that used to get together on the beautiful grounds of a retreat center in the San Fernando Valley, California. These grounds are run by the Catholic Sisters of Social Service as an interfaith retreat center.

On that fateful day in May 2016, I was heading towards the usual shady spot where our small group would meet, from time to time, outdoors near the chapel. I saw, heading towards the side door of the main building, a man who looked a little like well known movie star Tom Cruise who, I have read, attended a Catholic seminary for a while, then became a member of the Church of Scientology …

Whether it was he or not, I do not know; it was only a brief glimpse, and the man’s back was nearly turned to me as he hastily walked away. For no reason I could peg to, I had a sense of foreboding.

Then I saw, sitting in the seat I usually sat in, at the little outdoor table where we used to meet, what appeared to be a tall, statuesque, improbably buxom transgender woman (or maybe an intersex person) in a spandex outfit with wide, diagonal zebra stripes … black and white … and wearing stiletto high heels. Sitting beside her was a short, relatively unattractive but pleasant looking older woman, whom I took possibly to be her chaperone.

In the several years I had co-led the Rumi meetup on those grounds, I had occasionally found folks sitting at the spot where our small group usually met. However, I had never seen a person like this there before … or seen such a person anywhere at all, when it came right down to it.

Without knowing why, I had the most unusual sense of mortal peril. I felt that my life was on the line at that moment, and any false move might result in my death. Odd, is it not?

The tall woman got up from her chair and headed leisurely towards me. She was walking in a way they used to call ‘sashay’ back home. She ‘sashayed’ in my direction. Her older companion followed behind her.

It was then that I experienced a big wall of energy between the tall woman and me. The wall of energy was several feet thick. Maybe it was this wall of energy that prevented the woman from speaking to me, or maybe she did not see me at all.

My own experience of the energy barrier was one of being protected from great evil. That is not to say that transgender women (or possibly intersex people) are evil … quite the contrary. It is just that Spirit guided me to steer clear of this particular person on that day.

To this day I am haunted by that unaccountable run-in. The shock of it propelled me to resign from my position as one of the organizers of the Rumi meetup.

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: ANOTHER ENERGY BARRIER EXPERIENCE

Another instance of an energy barrier apparently created by a positive versus negative dimensional disparity is described here …

Link: “Alice’s Perilous Tales: The Man with the Trembling Pinkie,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 23 May 2019; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cRe ..

In that instance my visualization of the energetic barrier that surrounded me was that of descent of a protective angelic force. This etching by Gustave Dore reminds me very much of the angelic energy that protected me from the ‘Balaam’ who stood before me …

Image: “An Angel Appears to Balaam (Num 23:15-35, by Gustave Dore, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:043.An_Angel_Appears_to_Balaam.jpg … public domain

I felt as if I were standing behind my guardian angel, and the angel was protecting me from the man with the trembling pinkie, or more likely from the huge, dark astral being that had landed on him.

From my childhood Bible studies, I guessed that man might be riding a contrary ‘ass’ or donkey, which I interpreted as the ‘desire elemental’ mentioned in School of Theosophy books.

I thought the man with the trembling pinkie might have qualities of character that caused my guardian angel to protect me from him. That was my guess, based on religious studies in my childhood.

Here is another work of art reminiscent of the energy barrier I intuitively sensed that day. This image has an angel, with sword, top left, battling a demon or devil bottom right. Between them is a jagged white energy barrier, a little like a lightning bold, but running diagonally from top right to bottom left of the image … https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/perettidarknessseries/images/7/72/Warfare.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/262?cb=20100520212747 ..

THE HUGE ENERGY BARRIERS I TERM ‘CITY DOMES’

It seems to me likely that the huge energy barriers I term ‘city domes’ might provide a clue to the nature of my own energy barrier experiences. For more on city domes, see …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Meditation Walking Area in Los Angeles

I am here at the Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Los Angeles. I am 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 would just show you a little bit of this walking area here, that  I am 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 am 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 will 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 is what Divine Mother asked me to tell you today. I hope your day is full of beauty. Talk to you later.

Centering Prayer to Heal the Victim-Aggressor Mental Filter (aka V— D— Syndrome) . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 1 May 2016
Previously titled: “Centering Prayer to Heal the Aggressor-Victim Mental Filter (aka V___ D___ Syndrome),” by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Yesterday I went to a morning “Silent Saturday” retreat at Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Encino, California …

Link: “Holy Spirit Retreat Center: Where People of All Faiths Can Come to Seek the Sacred” …  https://www.hsrcenter.com/ ..

… and there I learned the Method of Centering Prayer described here …

Link: “How to Do Centering Prayer,” 29 June 2019, in Wikihow … http://www.wikihow.com/Do-Centering-Prayer ..

This is a prayer technique taught through Contemplative Outreach, LTD., whose spiritual guide is Fr. Thomas Keating …

Link: “Centering Prayer,” by Contemplative Outreach … http://www.contemplativeoutreach.org/category/category/centering-prayer ..

It is a simple technique of shutting the door to the senses and the world, focusing on the heart. This center of Awareness could be center of the chest, or the physical heart, which is slightly to the left in the chest …

  • I found when I focused on the center of the chest, I homed in on the sound of my lungs, and their crepuscular motion.
  • I found when I focused slightly to the left, I homed in on the sound and motion of my heart, which practice I chose as my favorite.

Then one picks a simple Word, such as ‘Jesus’, ‘Abba’. ‘Christ’, ‘God’, ‘Father’, ‘Mother’, ‘Mary’, ‘Amen’, ‘Faith’, ‘Trust’, ‘Love’, ‘Joy’, ‘Grace’, ‘Peace’, ‘Let Go’, ‘Listen’, ‘Silence’, ‘Stillness’, or such like.

So, I am concentrating on my heart. Then a random thought arises. At this, in my heart, I say my chosen Word. There may be a stretch of silence, with no thought arising, during which my attention is purely focused on my heart. Then another thought arises. Once more, I say my favorite Word.

I took to this meditation immediately, and found it right away led me into the sort of Divine love described in the poems of 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim theologian, jurist, Islamic scholar, and Sufi mystic Rumi, whose sacred poetry is acclaimed worldwide.

I was practicing the meditation last night, while lying flat on my back in ‘corpse pose’, and noticed the victim-aggressor mental filter (also known on the clair plane as V— D— syndrome) playing out in my mind.

Shavasana

In electromagnetic field terms, I would describe this victim-aggressor mental filter as a filtering of the Incoming Light by a glitch of about three points of Light closure in my crown chakra (7th chakra old-style, located at the top of my head).

As I brought attention from the astral play caused by the crown chakra glitch, back to my heart by repetition of my chosen Word, I felt the glitches fill with Light, and the astral play suddenly ceased. All the actors vanished. I was left mainly in the near silence of my softly susurrating heart.

So there it is, and so I have found: Centering Prayer is a way to heal the victim-aggressor mental filter (aka V— D— syndrome).

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