1. The day is past and over;
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee!
I pray Thee now that sinless
The hours of dark may be.

2. The joys of day are over;

O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me through the coming night.

3. The toils of day are over:
I raise the hymn to Thee
And ask that free from peril
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, make their darkness light
And guard me through the coming night.

4. Lord, that in death I sleep not,
And lest my Foe should say
“I have prevailed against him,”
Lighten mine eyes, I pray.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me through the coming night.

How to Lift the Dire Karma of the Jackass Love Curse . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

THE JACKASS LOVE CURSE

The Fall 2017 issue of “Quest Magazine,” published by the Theosophical Society in America, features an article by Ray Grasse detailing an interview he had with mystic Shelly Trimmer, who spent a few years studying (and apparently, jousting) with Paramahansa Yogananda. Also included were anecdotes that Ray Grasse heard from Goswami Kriyananda …

Link: Grasse, Ray, “Memories of Yogananda” Quest 105:4(Fall 2017) pg. 16-19 … https://www.theosophical.org/publications/quest-magazine/4331 ..

In particular I notice the mention of a Jackass Love Curse used to mire two people who hate or despise each other in a Black Magic spell of sexual attraction inappropriate to their circumstances and inclinations. Even more dreadful to imagine, I intuit that it is sometimes employed to ensnare a person in sexual attraction to an animal, such as a jackass or donkey or goat or dog.

For more on the Jackass Love Curse, go to the above link, and search the term: Pennsylvania Dutch magic

THE KARMA OF USING THIS CURSE, OR OF BEING CURSED BY IT

Intuitively, I feel that this Jackass Love Curse … whether playfully employed, or whether used in ernest … is a very wicked curse, and bound to cause untold misery not just to those enspelled, but also to those who ‘bespell’ … who lay the spell upon other people.

I sense that those who use this curse against other people are destined to a life of utmost misery, as social outcasts and pariahs from all those they cherish … for this is the effect of this evil curse on the lives of those who are enspelled.

In essence, the Bespeller will make a Jackass of himself or herself! His or her karma will be to become the laughing stock of friends, family, and acquaintances.

INTUITED INCANTATION: A BLACK MAGIC MARRIAGE

On the clair plane, I intuited that the incantation … sometimes used while braiding the hairs of a person and to someone they hate [or to an animal ‘spouse’] … is a Black Magic reversal of the traditional religious marriage vows, such as …

To the first person desired to be cursed: Do you, [name 1] take [name 2, or name of the animal] to be your lawfully wedded [wife or husband]?
Then the first curse: Mayest thou answer yes!
To the second person desired to be cursed, or to the animal ‘spouse’: Do you, [name 2, or name of the animal] take [name 1] to be your lawfully wedded [wife or husband]?
Then the second curse: Mayest thou answer yes!
Then: With this act I thee wed.

ALICE’S PERILOUS TALES: ENSPELLED!

I feel this curse, or one like it, may have been laid on me and on many of the people I knew, in the year 1999 or 2000. By whom, and why, I have no idea.

As this curse causes great misery in the lives of those cursed … to the extent they may be driven to madness, or else, for solace, to the very feet of God … and as I only just last month found out that such a curse even existed, I’ve been searching about for an antidote.

ANTIDOTES TO THE JACKASS LOVE CURSE

Spells of Warding

Here is my blog on this topic …

Link: “Spell of Warding Against the Ill-Fated Love Charm of an Evil Sorcerer,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed and published on 1 June 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-9gM ..

Songs of Renewal for Both Bespeller and Enspelled

I was drawn to offer this powerful Hebrew song, “Ana BeKoach,” which means “Untie My Tangles.” I feel that this song may help people of any faith to dispel their karmic tangles …

Video: “Ana Bekoach (A Kabbalistic Prayer),” by Yossi Taieb, 2 April 2011 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4hXWJoz8UY ..

Then I was drawn to the Messianic prayer of petitioning, “Baruch Hashem Adonai.” I feel that listening to or singing this prayer, or a similar prayer praising God in one’s own faith, will help the repentant Enspeller, and also those who have been Enspelled, to overcome the Karma of becoming a social pariah …

Video: “Baruch Hashem Adonai,” by Mensajes de Esperanza, 26 August 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlOrfN869Co ..

Here is another song that, I intuitively feel, can remove the Karma of Being a Jackass … This song lists our awareness from the realm of personality to that of the Soul. It is one of my hands-down favorites …

Video: “Snatam Kaur – Kabir’s Song,” by Arex, 17 January 2014 …  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4DA1n9ui7Y ..

Karmic Antidote for the Bespeller

Here is a very powerful Hebrew song of repentance, that asks for forgiveness. This is also an all-time favorite of mine. I feel it would be very effective for Bespellers, who hope their karma will be lifted …

Video: “Choneni Elohim, from Psalm 51 (Be Gracious to me O G-d),” by Christene Jackman, 5 October 2011 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpHy77S-ITs ..

Those of other faiths may find similar songs asking forgiveness in their own traditions.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I was just going by a Catholic place. And I have noticed, when I go by certain Catholics, and certain Catholic places, they all have a way of singing the wonderful chant: Christus vincit! Christus regnat! Christus, Christus imperat!

And here is how they did it … I hope I can do it justice; it was just great! The tone of voice was very rich and deep, and different from mine. But I will try …

. . . . .

“Christus Vincit . Version 1: Victorious”

25 January 2018

 

Christus vincit!
Christus regnat!
Christus, Christus imperat!

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones,

Black Tourmaline for Clearing Negative Energies

I have a thought about clearing negative energies. And I had an experience with that last night, that I thought I would tell you about. I woke up in the middle of the night … Well, first I should tell you: I was having trouble with the computer and the phone, and all the electronic things would not work right,

And so I bought 3 pounds of black tourmaline … It is a black gemstone. You can get the raw gemstone, unpolished, on Amazon, or here or there. You just wave this crystal in front of your heart when the computer acts up, and the computer starts working right.

A ‘Dark Attack’ Last Night

Then I learned that this black tourmaline stone can also be used to clear negative energy from the aura. I have been having trouble lately, waking up in the middle of the night, and finding a lot of negative energies coming into my aura, and then expressing themselves out, through my aura, and clearing, and transforming.

And it has been a little too much to handle. Last night it happened again, very dramatically. I woke up in the middle of the night, and I felt all of this negative energy. It felt like Dark Attack energy, but it also felt like clearing energy.

So I went and got one-pound bags of the tourmaline stone that I had bought, and I placed them on the affected areas. After a few minutes, I could feel them beginning to accumulate this energy. It took about a half hour for them to get full of energy.

And so each time a bag would get full, I would lay it aside, to put it out in the Sun in the morning, and then try another bag. That worked great.

In another sense it is good because, when things happen to me, and I wake up in the middle of the night, lots of times I feel a little bit frightened … you know? … at the energies. And having something to do about it really helps.

. . . . .

Three Meditations to Help Clear Through ‘Dark Attacks’
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
2 July 2014

Here are a few good options for clearing through ‘Dark Attacks’ …

  • One is to sit up straight, and feel your pranic column energy, from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet, in a straight line near the backbone. That is a very good one.
  • Or, sit up straight and feel your heart energy. That is a very good one too.
  • Or, feel your high heart energy (below the collarbone, at the level of the thymus gland.

Other Ways to Clear Negative Energies

As mentioned above, you can work with crystals, for grounding. That is a very good way to dispel fear, I feel.

There are also black tourmaline anklets that can be worn. Then there are a lot of other things, like aromatherapy, and essential oils, and then there are acupressure points … you can work with your own acupressure points. You can use qigong, or maybe jin shin jyutsu … You can do that for yourself to.

Let me think … color therapy: Wear special colors; how about that? Or put them around your home. Color therapy helps.

So there are quite a few alternative ways of releasing negative energy, and of adjusting the aura. I just thought I would mention [these], because things have been pretty intense, with the energies in June. And they are likely to get intense again in July. So it is nice to have a few things on hand.

One of the ways that I use a lot to help myself to get out of negative energy, is toning. I just sound, out loud, the feelings that I have … no matter how loud and outlandish they may be. And then, what I find is that it dissipates the feelings. Some call it transforming the feelings. And so then afterwards I feel more peaceful.

And sometimes I use nonsense syllables and sing. I can sing sacred songs, and I find that also helps, to change my mood. Those are possibilities too.

The Resurrection,” in “On the Incarnation of the Word,” public domain (1)

Dear Ones,

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS

From my youth, I remember the ‘sign of the cross’ which confers the blessing of Christ’s presence in our lives: In nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti (in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit):

Image: Young girl making the sign of the cross … https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/81a0b-fare_il_segno_della_croce.jpg ..

Video: The Sign of the Cross in Latin, by Stomping Crows … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAcokfQ3cqY ..

THE BLESSINGS CONFERRED BY BAPTISM

Arthur E. Powell has an intriguing passage to do with the ceremony of Baptism, which includes the blessing conferred by the sign of the cross.

Citation: “The Mental Body.” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, The Theosophical Publishing House Limited, London; printed by the Whitefriars Press, Ltd, Tonbridge and London, 1927 … “Chapter XXXII. Rebirth,” page 289, the first full paragraph, beginning “The ‘seeds’ …” through the second full paragraph on page 290, ending “… of Vishnu.”

According to the above passage, a child is born with seeds of evil, which the Catholic Church calls ‘original sin’. The making of the sign of the cross on a young child during the sacrament of baptism, creates an artificial elemental which is like a ‘guardian angel’. This thought form is ‘ensouled’ by a sylph.

Sylphs are air elementals, thus hard to depict. The above picture is of a Sea Sylph, but it reminds me of the Baptismal Sylph, which has the same sort of energy, but settles in the shape of a white, fiery cross onto a person’s back at the level of the heart chakra when the person is baptized …

Clagett, 15 August 2013, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward. In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. The caption is the same as the title of the drawing.

DESCRIPTION: There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward. In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. The caption is the same as the title of the drawing.

The Sylph thus ‘protects our back’ … protects the back part of our heart chakra, which in some instances might otherwise be ‘stitched shut’ by nature spirits that have been bewitched by the dark. (3)

In Arthur Powell’s passage referred to above, there’s a description of baptism when practiced by the Liberal Catholic Church. In that ceremony, the priest makes the sign of the cross along the entire body of the child. The thought form so created is referred to, in the pass age as a ‘cuirass’. A cuirass is a defensive armor of the torso. In this case the cuirass is made of white light.

Here’s an image that reminds me of a cuirass of light that has settled on a person in the sign of a cross. To me, the dark background visually represents how the thought form, or else the Sylph, protects us from the dark. It is like a Warrior of Light protecting our heart:

ABOUT THE TRANSFORMATION OF A BAPTISMAL SYLPH INTO A SERAPH

According to Arthur Powell’s passage, in the fortunate instance when the baptized child lives his life in the spirit and thought of Christ (what some call ‘walking with Christ’), then there comes a time when the Sylph is transformed into a Seraph. For the Sylph, this means ‘individualisation’ …

A seraph is a member of the highest order of angels, with individualized consciousness. The pink, winged figure below is a depiction of a Seraph by Giotto di Bondone:

A PERSONAL STORY ABOUT A BAPTISMAL SYLPH

After reading all this, I was really happy that I had been christened (baptized, blessed with the presence of Christ) in my early childhood.

Further, in recent years I have had an experience of my Sylph activating and bringing forth the love of Christ through my own heart chakra. For me, this is an absolutely glorious experience of ecstasy. This happened, apparently, because the spiritual music being played and sung by the musicians and the congregation in that church, were so very beautiful that my heart was filled to overflowing with joy at hearing it.

The mountain of Christed energy I encountered when my Sylph activated had an untoward side effect: The pastor in the Christian congregation where I had been worshiping, along with two ushers, ushered me out of the church, and asked me not to come back.

How Christ’s Light Reveals the Darkness in This World

When Christed energy arrives in our lives, it can be disconcerting to other people, as the light of Christ shows, in striking detail, the dark in this world, which had heretofore remained hidden.

When those around us see what is before them, in this duality play on Earth, they begin to realize than choices must be made … very important choices for the welfare of their Souls.

The choices that lie before us, at each turn of the path, in every second of our waking consciousness, are these: To turn to the Light of Christ, or to fall back into the great slumber of darkness.

When each of us begins to rise to the vision of Light and Dark, the first thing that happens is, we feel that someone else has ‘done something to us’ … Someone else has brought beings of darkness into our lives.

On Aligning with Christ, Rather Than Blaming or Judging Others

This, though, is a misapprehension. Instead of blaming or judging others, it’s better to align with Christ, to know that he is with us and will protect us. That is the first step on our Christed journey.

Then, should others blame us for what their newly opened eyes begin to see, let us not judge them as they judge us. Let us pray Christ may confer the blessing of his love and light upon them.

I say this by way of caveat, as it seems that even a little bit of greater Christ consciousness … as in my case …  is always swiftly followed upon by misunderstanding from those around us. If yours is that path, may you will be the more easily able to cope with what may follow, be it joyous or upsetting, from the standpoint of social acceptance.

How the Sign of the Cross Can Bring Us Great Joy

Setting that aside, I would like to end on this happy note: Lately, I have noticed that when I practice the sign of the cross my Sylph feels great joy, and my heart chakra energy feels protected and free to express itself in the world.

And so, for me, the sign of the cross is the answer to many worldly concerns.

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

Dear Ones,

Another song! This one about Christ crucified, passing on, and arisen. The accompaniment to the melody was provided telepathically by another person, but I am not sure who that person is. The astral story is that he had a friend on Death Row, who was feeling despair, and that the song was created in empathy for that friend.

My God, My God,
Why hast Thou forsaken me?
My life, my love,
Lost on this forsaken tree

My God, My God,

This heart, this heart,
In all the world beats but for Thee.

I place my trust and faith in Thee …
Naught but Thee.

Dear Ones,

Video: “Only in God Psalm 62,” by Ron Kalkhorst, 3 February 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcyFi7Bm_Ms ..

PSALM 62: WAITING ON GOD (KJV, public domain)

62  “Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

 “He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

 “How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

 “They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

 “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

 “He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

 “In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

 “Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

 “Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.

10  “Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

11 “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

12  “Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.”

Holy Communion . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed and published on 19 May 2015; revised on 30 October 2018

Dear Ones,

This video is about Holy Communion, Christ Consciousness, and faith. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I found out something interesting today at church. It has to do with the Angelic Realm. So I will give you the background and I will tell you what happened. Two days ago I was in church.  The habit is, in this church, to stand at your place in the pew, after you take Holy Communion, until the priest sits down. And then everyone sits down.

And so, I was surprised to see that, after the gentleman who sat next to me had taken Holy Communion, instead of standing with everyone else, he knelt, and was deep in devotional prayer and communion with God.

That got me thinking. And so today, when everyone was there and took Holy Communion, I thought I would give it a try too. There is something I should explain about Holy Communion, for those not familiar …

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is like this phase that we are in, on Earth … this phase of Regeneration and New Creation … What it is, is an understanding, and a promise, and a physical symbol … or understanding in the physical realm … that we have that ability to be in the physical realm … and be God Consciousness … be Christ consciousness.

And that is the meaning of Holy Communion: We remember that we can be like Christ while in our own physical bodies on Earth. It is a good thought, and a good ceremony, for those that are used to this kind of ceremony, during this transitional phase into New Creation.

With that as an aside … Just now I went up and took Holy Communion … this is like taking Christ conscioiusness into your own body … and then I went and knelt directly afterwards, instead of standing, with the rest of the congregation, till the priest sat down … which, from the standpoint of societal expectations, is kind of a hard thing to do, because there is that expectation to do like everyone else does.

So, in the interest of my mystical leanings, I tried kneeling. And … what do you know … it felt very comfortable to be kneeling while everyone else was standing. As well, I felt, in the Angelic Realm, a descent of angels, as if they immediately recognized something. The Angels descended, and they were all around me, The space around me became so sacred, so sweet, so new, and so beautiful!

It was quite an experience. It was quite a comfortable experience experience … that of disregarding societal expectations when my heart tells me that some other physical action is more appropriate for regenesis and renewal of my Soul. A small test case … yes … but a springboard for further discoveries.

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

I just woke up thinking about a Mystical Poetry Celebration I facilitated at The Onion … http://sepulvedauu.org/ … in North Hills, Los Angeles, California, a few years ago. It somehow seemed relevant today, so here it is.

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

What is Mysticism?

Mysticism is immediate consciousness of the transcendent or ultimate reality.

WAYS TO EXPERIENCE MYSTICISM

Slowing the Mind

  • Meditation
  • Repeating a mantra (a sacred sound or word)
  • Gazing at a mandala (sacred art that induces a meditative state)

Concentrating on the Body Instead of the Mind

  • Dance, such as: Sufi whirling and Dances of Universal Peace (1)
  • Walking in a maze or labyrinth
  • Walking in a circle

Extraordinary Sensory and Emotional Experiences

  • Extreme pain, such as mortification of the flesh
  • White tantric yoga (kundalini risen, which I feel to be a good choice for many healthy, spiritual people)
  • Black tantric yoga (reverse kundalini, which I strongly advise against)
  • Red tantric yoga (sexual union in a sacred context)
  • Use of such psychoactive substances … LSD, peyote, etc (Caveat: This can cause ‘bad trips’ and contact with negative astral entities.)
  • Neurophysiologic disturbances … profound depression, schizophrenia, or stroke
  • Near-death-experience

Bringing Up the Emotions of Gratitude, Appreciation, or Divine Love

  • Affirmations of gratitude or appreciation – giving thanks
  • Heartfelt prayer, spirit-filled religious services,
  • Devotional chanting (bhakti yoga)
  • Spiritual music, hymns
  • Reading mystical poetry

— adapted from Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

EVERY MAJOR RELIGION HAS ITS MYSTICS

These are just a few examples:

  • Christianity and Sufism … “God Is Love”
  • Kabbalah … Judaism … “… To love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him …” –Deuteronomy 11: 22 (KJV, public domain) … This is devekut, or communion with God
  • Hinduism … “Atman is Brahman” (i.e., the individual Soul is the cosmic Soul)
  • American Sikhism, quote by Yogi Bhajan on the oneness of a person with God:
    Link: “God and Me, Me and God Are One,” mantra, downloads, and CDs, at SpiritVoyage,  https://www.spiritvoyage.com/mantra/god-and-me,-me-and-god,-are-one/man-000041.aspx ..
    This concept is sometimes termed advaita, nonduality, or ‘God indwelling’ or ‘God immanent
  • Zen … haiku (short poems that can bring one to experience of the present moment) and koan (riddles that baffle the mind)

— adapted from Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

WHY IS MYSTICISM SO ALL-PERVADING?

The Mystical Mind

In 1999, Eugene d’Aquili and Andrew Newberg wrote a book in which they demonstrated that God is generated by and generates the brain (2,3) …

Citation: “The Mystical Mind: Probing the Biology of Religious Experience,” by Eugene d’Aquili and Andrew Newberg, 1999

If this is true, then it follows that the mystical experience is inherent in brain chemistry.

Now, the doubter in us might propose that any experience based on brain chemistry is suspect, might he not? But on what basis might he make that assumption? On the basis of sense perceptions?

Sense perceptions are also based on brain chemistry, and so, our doubter must posit, they are also suspect. More suspect, I might suppose, than the mystical experience, since many subjective interpretations may be put upon sense perceptions, and all mystical experiences are remarkably similar.

A person determined to experience ‘things as they are’ will find sense perceptions often mislead … they severely limit the data that come to us from the universe. What about the mystical experience? Could it be an experience of reality at the quantum physics level? At the level of the most basic subatomic particles?

If, in fact, the mystical experience holds greater scientific validity than sense perceptions, then the question becomes, how to have this mystical experience, how to experience reality as it is, and not through the filter of the senses.

Mental Intelligence versus Universal Intelligence

In autumn, starlings flock and dance together at nightfall in the skies above England and Scotland. These dancing clouds of starlings are called murmurations and their complex dance patterns, performed, as it seems, of ‘one mind’ are like aerial ballet in their precision.

In the video clip below, the starlings are the tiny black specks in the sky …

Video: “Murmuration” by Sophie Windsor Clive and Liberty Smith, Facebook: Islands and Rivers … https://vimeo.com/31158841 .. 

Why do they do it? How do they do it? It is not like they have been having practice sessions together. It is not like they are all that intelligent. Why do they not bump into each other in mid-air?

There is a theory that we have been looking at the starlings for intelligence, and we have been looking in the wrong place … intelligence is all around us … in the air …

Video: “Intelligent Air,” by conferencereport, 24 April 2009 … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoIIUB3irys ..

… or so the theory goes. We (birds, people) are the end-receptors, so to speak, of universal intelligence. (4)

All we have to do is open ourselves to it and let it in. What if we do not? Well, then we will be stuck with the limited intelligence stored in our personal minds. We will not get to stand in the doorway to unlimited intelligence, the doorway to All That Is. The key to that door is found through the practice of mysticism.

SWARM BEHAVIOR

Scientists call what the starlings do ‘swarm behavior’. Two-dimensional computer simulations have been made showing this behavior.

The second and last video clip is just such a computer simulation. As you watch this video, imagine that you yourself exist as points of light … in quantum physical terms, as a ‘swarm’ consisting of tiny bundles of subatomic energy. Imagine that the edges of the screen represent time and space …

Video: “Swarm Simulation,” by flight404 … https://vimeo.com/11704967 ..

What would happen if there were no edges on the screen of our minds? What would happen to the points of Light that represent our awareness?

Could These Notions Be True?

  • God is generated by and generates the brain.
  • The mystical experience is more valid than sense perceptions.
  • Unlimited intelligence pours into our limited human form from the air, from water, and some say, from the solar winds, from the Universe. As the song goes, “Love is in the air!” All we have to do is perceive it.
  • And finally: We exist as points of Light. Our awareness is compressed by our concept of time and space into a four-dimensional reality (length, width, breadth, and time). This time-and-space limitation is a mental concept only; not reality. What is reality, then?

Dear Ones,

VIDEO BY ALICE

OUTLINE OF THE VIDEO

  • On clearing and revamping our mental-emotional images or thought forms
  • I’ve been doing a lot of clearing of the first chakra and the vital body lately. The symptoms of this clearing have been all kinds of painful thoughts and emotions. Maybe from prior lifetimes, or maybe from some deeply buried traumatic moments in this lifetime, are patterns of thought and emotion that I consider to be completely unacceptable.
  • The thing I do, when these patterns come up, is to try to be completely dispassionate. I try to feel good about it; and that Spirit really knows the right thing to do for me.
  • The mind attaches many stories to these kinds of emotions, rotely.
  • Say I remember from a past lifetime, a time when I was brutally killed during a war or to do with war. (In my case, I have three such memories, from three such lifetimes.) Let’s say I’m in the process of releasing all that. Then during the clearing of these energy threads, the subconscious will bring up these memories of past lifetimes, or of movies with similar resonance that I’ve seen, or any moment in my current life when I’ve felt that kind of horrible emotion.
  • I have a choice: I can pay attention to the story, or I can just release the energy. It seems to me important to pay attention to the energy and not the story.
  • There is a technique recommended by Patanjali, the great Indian Yogi (1), with regard to habits of thought. Let’s say I have a habit of sadness or anger or jealousy … or whatever it is. This habit keeps triggering all the time. Patanjali recommended coming up with something else to replace that. Something positive. Something that will allow us to grow spiritually and be more happy … such as chanting Om or singing a Christian hymn … whatever it is that is uplifting.
  • Eventually, the thought is, the vital body will start loving the idea of God. It will start singing like that, instead of singing off key … a little too sharp, a little too flat … whatever it is that’s a little painful to hear.
  • So there are Patanjali’s idea and my idea about working with energy rather than stories.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Recent Experience of First Chakra Clearing

This is about clearing the mental body and revamping the mental-emotional images that we have. And I have noticed lately that I have been doing a lot of clearing, and clearing of the vital body and the first chakra.

And the results of this clearing … or the symptom of this clearing … are all kinds of very sad, or painful thoughts and emotions, or angry, perhaps, and all kinds of things come up: things that I considered, in the past, I did not even have … But maybe they are from prior lifetimes? … Or maybe deeply buried, in this lifetime, from some single incident, sometime … here or there? … are patterns of emotion and thought that I considered to be completely unacceptable.

A Neutral Attitude Towards Brutal Incarnational Memories Helps Soul Clearing

And as I clear, these patterns come up, and completely horrify me. [laughs] … But the good thing is, that they are coming up, because they are leaving; they are clearing. And so, I try to be dispassionate when they come up; I try to feel good about it, you know? In fact, that it is a good thing that is happening; and that Spirit really knows the right thing to do for me; and not get involved in the stories that come up, because there are many stories that the mind attaches to these kind of emotions. just rotely … just out of stream of consciousness, and prior experience.

So, say I remember, from a past lifetime, a time when I had been brutally killed during a war. Right? And I am in the process of releasing that energy stream … that thread of energy … and any other people’s energies that happen to be a similar resonance, and that are attaching to that.

It will bring up memories: Maybe of past lifetimes when that happened; or maybe of movies that I have seen; or maybe of any moment in my current life when I felt that kind of horrible emotion. And so, I can pay attention to the story, or I can just release the energy, you know? … and go on. It seems to me much faster to simply pay attention to the energy and not the story.

Patanjali’s Advice: Release of Negative Emotional Habits Through Sacred Words

Another technique recommended by Patanjali, the great Indian yogi, (1) is not so much for clearing, but for habitual thought streams … So, let us say I have a habit of sadness, or anger, or jealousy, or whatever it is; and this keeps triggering … all the time, triggering. One of the things Patanjali recommended is, coming up with something else to replace that; something positive; something that will allow us to grow more, spiritually, and be more happy.

And so he suggested sacred words: Like chanting ‘Om’, or singing a Christian hymn, or whatever it is that is uplifting. You know? And eventually, the thought is, the vital body will ‘divinize’ … It will start loving the idea of God, and the concept of the Divine; that it will start singing like that, instead of singing ‘off-key’ … a little too sharp, a little too flat … whatever it is that is musically kind of painful to hear, you know?

Conclusion

So that is Patanjali’s idea, and that is my idea about Patanjali. And that is my idea about energy rather than stories.

Good luck with your clearing. It is kind of fun. Talk to you later.

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