Dear Ones,

I wrote up these notes in April 2018, with a hope that I would soon finish them off. More than a year later, I have to figure I may never get round to that. I apologize to my reader that they are presented here in outline form …

THOUGHTS ON PROVIDING STAGE ONE WORK FOR THE CALIFORNIA HOMELESS AT LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE, IN EXCHANGE FOR SOCIAL SERVICES

I have a thought that Stage One work might be provided the California homeless at less than minimum wage, in exchange for social services such as State One housing, necessary medical treatment, food, and temporary housing.

I note we have precedents in paying less than the minimum wage, here in America: Commission sales work, work on small farms, and newspaper delivery, for instance …

Link: “When Must Employers Pay the Minimum Wage?, updated by Sachi Barreiro, Attorney, at NOLO … https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employers-pay-minimum-wage-law-29600.html ..

Prison Work Programs for Less Than a Dollar an Hour

Then there is the special instance of prison labor, where inmates have the voluntary option to work, for less than $1 an hour …

Link: “How Much Do Incarcerated People Earn in Each State?” by Wendy Sawyer, 10 April 2017, in Prison Policy Initiative … https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2017/04/10/wages/ ..

Thus we have a precedent, in the exceptional circumstance of incarceration, for offering work at a great deal less than the minimum wage. Could we build upon this precedent by offering work training to our felons or released felons or homeless, at far less than minimum wage?

If the precedent might be stretched in this way, then we might have the setting for an economic bounce-back, here in California, as greater numbers of the currently unemployed are able to find employment.

Prison Release Work Camps. I am thinking that something like this might be good if, for lack of funds, we have to release the prison population. For those who are ‘unregenerate’ … to use an old-time term … work camps might be set up or ‘rough and tumble’ work might be provided as an alternative to imprisonment, at greatly less than the minimum wage. This topic I discussed in a little more detail here …

Link: “Ought the United States, like North Korea, Have Forced Labor?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 21 May 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cQw ..

A Stage One Consideration in Employing California’s Homeless at Less Than the Minimum Wage

Here is a Stage One consideration: Let’s try to figure out some way to get around the minimum wage, for people who are unhomed, and who are receiving extra social services, in the event the United States government is not able to participate, here in California, in ameliorating the situation, and easing the social unrest.

For instance, could we offer something more akin to prison labor … voluntary labor, and a very small wage, in exchange for housing and food and medical care? Could we offer that, in camps especially set up for that?

What would be the long-term situation with regard to those that California cannot now find work for at minimum wage, and who must find work? If employment at less than minimum wage in exchange for social services were to be offered as a temporary, short-term Phase One, then what would be Phases Two and Three?

THOUGHTS ON SLOWING THE SPREAD OF HIV AND AIDS IN PRISONS

On Isolating HIV-Positive Prison Populations in Cell Blocks, Together with HIV-Positive Prison Guards

In United States prisons, HIV tests might be used to separate the HIV-positive prison populations … and the HIV-positive prison guards … physically, from those prisoners and guards who are HIV-negative. These tests need to be performed every 6 months, as I understand it, and also one month after possible exposure to the virus. HIV tests might be made routine in prison medical facilities, not only for the safety of prisoners and guards, but also for the sake of the infectable law-abiding populations upon whom prisoners might prey, either as prostitutes or as sexual predators, after their release.

Conjugal Visits

I think that, to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS amongst United States prison populations, we ought to consider allowing conjugal or significant other visits in our federal prisons, and in those state prisons that currently do not do so.

Conjugal visits might lead to less intercourse amongst inmates, and less intercourse between inmates and prison guards, so that HIV might spread more slowly amongst the prison population. I feel that conjugal visits might also lead to less violence amongst prisoners.

Such a policy also might help prisoners who have been in long-time-paired relationships to preserve those relationships while imprisoned. It might help families stay together through the financial hardship of imprisonment of a parent, and that might positively affect community life.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING OF IMMIGRANTS TO THE UNITED STATES, COMPARED TO THAT IN CHINA

I have been perusing the “CIA World Factbook” online …

Link: “World Factbook,” by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ ..

… and have found it full of information pertinent to forestalling social unrest in California. For instance, from my reading, it seems to me that the human trafficking of immigrants to China from North Korea in our lifetime is, in some ways, analogous to the human trafficking of immigrants to the United States from Mexico.

How China Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from North Korea

Apparently, there are masses of people in North Korea, whom the government forces into forced labor in China …

“… North Korea does not fully comply with minimum standards for the elimination of [human] trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so; the government continued to participate in human trafficking through its use of domestic forced labor camps and the provision of forced labor to foreign governments through bilateral contracts; officials did not demonstrate any efforts to address human trafficking through prosecution, protection, or prevention measures; no known investigations, prosecutions, or convictions of trafficking offenders or officials complicit in trafficking-related offenses were conducted; the government also made no efforts to identify or protect trafficking victims and did not permit NGOs to assist victims (2015) …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in personshttps://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Korean people also may flee to China of their own free will so as to escape starvation …

“… risking arrest, imprisonment, and deportation, tens of thousands of North Koreans cross into China to escape famine, economic privation, and political oppression … –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … subheading: Disputes – International https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Those types of labor available to trafficked peoples sometimes may be beneath the level of misery that is acceptable here in the United States …

Link: “Trafficking in Persons Report June 2017,” by United States of America Department of State … https://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=801874This is a pdf download.

It might be prostitution. It might be illegal activities such as theft. It might be begging. They might be held by gangs that are ‘beneath the law’ and forced to be members of those gangs. This, to me, is unacceptable.

How the United States Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from Mexico

The situation with immigrants from North Korean to China is analogous, in some regards, to the situation with immigrants from Mexico to the United States. Immigrants from Mexico are not forced by the United States government into inhumane kinds of labor, but they may find themselves in those kinds of situations … living In dug-out caves in the Earth, for instance. And doing seasonal, migrant labor. Or young women or children may find themselves forced into lives of prostitution by pimps.

One thing we might look at, going forward, is how job training might be offered new immigrants, here in the United States, so as to broaden the scope of job opportunities for which they are eligible. This type of job training is doubly beneficial: It helps raise the living standard of immigrants; and it helps lessen the spiritual burden of human trafficking in the United States and uplift our nation through good works in our community.

The philanthropy we offer those caught in the throes of human trafficking is a kindness we offer our children as well, for they will look forward to a better educated community through whose informed choices may be sculpted a brighter tomorrow for all America.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, I feel that Los Angeles in particular, due to such stressors as homelessness and released felons, faces the spectre of social unrest at present. What to do? I feel we must look at what other countries do when faced with these stressors. We must not turn away from innovative solutions simply because we feel they are beneath us, as Americans.

I feel it is because we feel this: that the lesser good we are able to provide the homeless and released felons is beneath us, and unworthy of them, that we have found ourselves for ten years to be in stalemate as a city.

We are unable to provide the level of benefits and care that has been, with hopeful optimism, voted into California law. Massive problems lie before us, and have done so for 10 years now. California is a Sanctuary State for those fleeing from downright extermination in the crueler states of our great Union.

Though we are that to many, we have not the funds to help those seeking sanctuary in the manner afforded the homeless, the helpless, those seeking shelter, food, and work in days of old.

Here in Los Angeles we must make bold to provide what we may to those who have nothing at all. Though it be against the laws of our nation, and against those of our State, we must do what we can. We must offer what we may. We must open our hearts, still our doubts, and come up with sensible, novel solutions to the new problems that lie before us.

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

Call to Action: The Spectre of Social Unrest in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

At the level of the borderline poverty working family in Los Angeles today, there is a yearning for home ownership that is part and parcel of the American dream. Yet because of the high entry bar to home ownership, few blue collar working families can hope to achieve this dream.

This gives rise to hopelessness regarding the American way of life, for masses of people who feel that home ownership will be forever beyond their grasp. It is just such feelings of hopelessness that cause lack of faith in the American way of life, and can promulgate social unrest; even thoughts of revolution and of more even distribution of property through Communism.

Social unrest threatens those who own homes, those who have higher paying jobs, and those who offer employment here in Los Angeles. Thus it is in the best interests of those of us who have vested interests in this city, to offer hope to Los Angeles families who are economically less advantaged, whether they be renters of apartments or of rooms.

Here are two cost-effective ways to mitigate the spectre of social unrest in Los Angeles …

  • For borderline poverty working families who are renters, Los Angeles might offer apartment buildings with a ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ option. This option might be promoted through a State of California or local tax credit to apartment building owners.
  • In addition we could offer a Los Angeles or California monthly lottery prize of a home, so that the American dream of home ownership might be laid out and monthly publicized as a possibility, even for those who are as yet unable to obtain ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ housing.

I feel these two proposals, which are relatively inexpensive and might easily be embarked upon, would appeal to both the inchoate yearning and the realistic plans of Los Angeles families who hope for home ownership … and that they would do so in a manner both concrete and newsworthy.

It is the American dream of home ownership that keeps us strong as a people. No family among us that has the heart to work and to contribute to our community, ought suffer despondency in this regard. Let us raise high the standard of hope for a better tomorrow, for the sake of this great city we all … whether propertied or as yet renting … love and cherish.

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 have a topic to discuss that I have been putting off … Please excuse me. It has to do with the likelihood of a Carrington effect, and the short-term consequences resulting from that, due to the fact that, here in the United States, we are very technologically oriented and electronics oriented.

As you may know, in 2012 Pete Riley of Predictive Science, San Diego, CA, calculated the probability of a Carrington event in the next 10 years at approximately 12%; here is the paper …

Link: “On the probability of occurrence of extreme space weather events,” by Pete Riley, in “Space Weather,” received 16 September 2011; revised 18 November 2011; accepted 22 December 2011; published 23 February 2012;  Vol. 10, S02012, doi:10.1029/2011SW000734 … https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2011SW000734 … 2012 … http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/2011SW000734/pdf ..

Carrington Effect and Transportation Worldwide

I would like to put forth the notion that a Carrington Effect, in addition to the damage that it might do to the power grids … making gasoline unavailable here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, for weeks, months, or possibly, years … might also instantaneously halt transportation here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, because of the electronics in the engines and in the systems of cars now.

My question is: Would a Carrington effect most likely destroy sensitive electrical and electronic mechanisms in cars … such as ignition coils, generators, mechanical distributors, and starting motors … making it no longer possible for transportation to take place?

So this is a Call to Action regarding mitigation of that possibility. What can we do, to prepare ourselves for lack of transportation for, say, a week or two weeks, or maybe an extended length of time?

Effect on People Who Are Homebound and on Oxygen

For instance, with lack of transportation, one of the things that might happen is that people who are homebound and on oxygen are no longer able to obtain oxygen. They need to talk over this possibility with their healthcare providers, and try to keep on hand additional, emergency containers of oxygen.

I know this is possible because, for instance, in snowbound areas, as I recall, Medicare will provide those kinds of large containers, full of oxygen, in case the electricity goes down. I would like to suggest that all people who are on oxygen have those containers on hand, because of the likelihood of the Carrington Effect affecting transportation, and making it difficult or impossible for replacement oxygen canisters to be delivered to homes for some length of time.

Advantage of Owning an Older Car with Less Susceptible Electrical and Electronic Parts … and a Bicycle or Foot-Powered Scooter

If you are able, or have the money, or if you are thinking of trading to a new car, may I suggest the type of car that has no electronics in it … that very basic car? I think that is a good plan for the future.

Possibly even more helpful would be to have on hand a bicycle with a carrying basket on the front or back, or a foot-powered scooter on the handlebars of which shopping bags can be suspended.

Public Water Supply May Fail 

In addition, in terms of water supply, my understanding is that there is a powerhouse that pushes the water from the storage area to the various homes somehow. I do not know how this takes place, but if it is true, and if the power goes out because of the Carrington Effect, then we will have no water. For instance, in towns where water is gravity-fed from a water tower, it must be that electricity is needed to pump the water up into the tower. Without electricity, such a water supply system would fail, would it not? So, everyone has to look into alternatives of water supply, in the event of a Carrington Effect.

Thoughts on Storing and Cooking Food 

Of course, there is an issue of storing food, and of cooking the food. I suggest keeping on hand small cans of food that are already hydrated … that do not need extra water … and that have protein content in them. This is because, if the Carrington Effect takes place, there will be no refrigerators to keep the food in large containers refrigerated, and it will spoil. So, individual, or family-sized containers of canned food are the best bet … Say, beans in cans. Maybe instant rice, or oats that are ‘quick oats’ would be possibilities, if a fire source can be provided. All this I have written up in this blog …

Link: “Pioneer Skills: Planning for Tough Times Ahead,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 19 September 2017; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7H3 ..

… so you can look it up there as well. If we were suddenly reduced to pioneer circumstances, then you would want to have on hand, in your house, at least the least expensive ways of sustaining life until the power grids and transportation are restored.

What If Parents Are Stranded at Their Workplace, and Children at Their Schools, as a Result of a Midday Strike of the Carrington Effect? 

Also as a result of possible transportation take-down, if the strike of the Carrington Effect were to take place, say, midday, there would be an issue of how families might be reunited, so that they would be better capable of surviving, during the interval before power is restored.

How will parents get home, if their job takes them far from their home? How will children get home from school? Is there a plan in place, to help with that?

Suppose they cannot get home? Then, is there a plan for survival at the place where the parents work?

Do people who work far from home keep a comfortable, sturdy pair of walking shoes at work, in case they must walk home?

Is there a plan for survival at the school where the children are?

If part of the family arrives home … say, the children … and the parents cannot, then do the children know what to do, so as to protect themselves and sustain themselves, until the family is reunited?

Highrises May Be Rendered Uninhabitable. I note also, in this regard, that people who live or work in highrises, or in buildings with windows that will not open, might find these buildings unusable, after a Carrington Effect, for lack of ventilation and inoperability of HVAC. (Or, occupants might keep on hand tools for cutting holes in the windows, for ventilation.)

Shall We Establish Community Granaries? 

Here is something else: Could each community provide something along the lines of the Babylonian Granaries (grain storage facilities)? In Jewish times as well, the person in charge of a group of people would have a grain store, just in case of times of difficulty such as a Carrington Effect would cause.

Image: “A Wheat Receipt Issued by Two Officials of the Granary at Babylon (Old Cairo) – Egyptian National Library Inv. No. 126.87 AH / 706 CE” … https://www.islamic-awareness.org/history/islam/papyri/enlp10 ..

Would there be a place … say, a deserted supermarket … where supplies could be kept and doled out, in the way that rations were doled out during World War II?

This is something that each community could decide upon, and provide for on its own … Powdered milk for mothers with children, for instance. And maybe grain stores … cornmeal, flour, and the other things that I have suggested, such as rice and beans, could be on hand and could be given out, in the way that these supplies are given out in developing countries during catastrophic natural disasters.

On Planning to Repurpose Our Military Might to the Home Front in the Event of a Natural Disaster Such as a Carrington Event

We need to look to the home front right now, I feel.  It would be good to draw back our troops, in an organized way, as conflicts begin to cease, worldwide … considering, also the difficulty of getting our men and armaments home in the event of global power grid difficulties … and instead, develop a plan, on the home front, for caring for our communities during a crisis … maybe, extended times of crisis, the Carrington Effect being only one such.

That is my thought for today. I wish you all the very best.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a curse and one possible answering symbol to undo the curse. This curse has to do with death, or the killing of a person or persons being the foundation of a building, a dwelling, or a group.

In the long run, the answer to this kind of deep subconscious archetype or symbol is affordable housing for everyone, I feel.

There is an edited Summary after the video; after that is another section not in the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

The night before last I saw in a vision a curse that was laid upon a number of people that was like an archetypal image or subconscious symbol with great power … but it was a black magic curse.

I will draw you a picture of it, and attempt to explain a little about it, in hopes that it will get to those people so that they can dissolve and disempower this curse. It goes like this …

The Dwelling Curse

Drawing: “The Dwelling Curse,” by Alice B. Clagett, 3 November 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: Two yellow bars leaning toward each other, so that they look a little like a roof, with a black bar laid horizontally beneath them.

Drawing: “The Dwelling Curse,” by Alice B. Clagett, 3 November 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com

DESCRIPTION: Two yellow bars leaning toward each other, so that they look a little like a roof, with a black bar laid horizontally beneath them. 

It is a three-part picture. Down at the bottom there is a very black bar. And on the sides there are two yellow … it looks kind of like half-palm-leaves, only yellow … solid things, like wood.

The curse is like this: The black bar represents death or a dead person. And the yellow things represent a place to live, like a house or a place to live. When this curse was placed, it stated or imprinted, in the subconscious minds of the people, that if they killed … if a person were lying dead or buried … then they would have a house to live in.

So the idea is, as in the thuggee cults, that the death of someone will give them sustenance or means to survive. Further, the symbol of this curse shows that the dead person is the ‘floor’ … or the foundation … of this safety; of the building that the people have.

So buried in the ground of the place you would find the corpses of the people that have been killed to preserve this edifice. By ‘edifice’ is meant the group … the continuation of the group … and including the building and the grounds and so forth.

One ‘Answering Symbol’

I have a thought about what to do to dissolve this curse. I think the thing to do is to offer a counter-symbol. It could be like this …

DESCRIPTION: Two yellow bars leaning toward each other, so that they look a little like a roof, with a yellow bar laid horizontally beneath them, and sunlight streaming down upon them.

In this image there are still the bar at the bottom, and the two symbols that represent a house or building. And in addition to that there is the sun here … [top left] … a yellow Sun, and the rays of the Sun, coming down, onto the building here (which is bright yellow now from the rays of the Sun). Down here beneath it, the floor of the building is no longer black; instead it is that same bright yellow color.

So what we have is the Sun, and the abundance of the Sun, shining down on the building, nad changing all of that karma and that bad spell about having to kill … or that death is the foundation of the building … and the foundation of the group … into the notion that the Sun’s abundance is changing everything into a beautiful yellow Light color. In other words, the karma is dissolving. So this is the answer; this is one ‘answering’ symbol.

18 December 2019 Astral Explanation: Catastrophic Childhood Experience – Witchy Woman

I later learned, on the psychic plane, that the 3D source of this curse may have been a cover-up regarding a love affair between a purportedly celibate, holy man and a young boy, a child less than 10 years of age. As the holy man … according to the astral airs … had contracted HIV from the male prostitutes he had been employing, he passed on the virus to the boy, who died of AIDS not long thereafter.

The holy man, as the story goes, felt still an obsession to hold onto the child after his death, as it was his first love affair, and he cherished the unconditional love the child had shown towards him. So the child was buried illegally at the place where the man served as a holy man for his spiritual community, near the place where the people worshipped.

Years passed, and the child’s astral form remained chained to the mind and emotions of the holy man. During all those years, the curse was in effect. That curse is the topic of this blog, which … I see now … speaks to the issue in a deeply symbolic way.

By God’s grace, after the retirement of the holy man, the grave of the child was discovered, and the remains removed elsewhere. When that happened, the black magic spell was lifted from the place where the curse had been cast.

It is my hope that the remains of the child will one day be place in a consecrated graveyard that is far from the place where the holy man now lives, so that the spirit of the child may be set free to pursue the natural course of Soul evolution after dissolution of the physical form.

So may we all let go those who have passed on before us, in charity of heart and healing of what is lost, in knowledge of the fulfillment of our own destiny through Christ our Lord.

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