Dear Ones,

Here is a video of conversations with a deva and nature spirits at Lake Piru. There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I am over here right now at Lake Piru, and I kept hearing this deep, rumbling, vast voice. I could not figure out who it was. Finally I realized it was the Deva of Lake Piru, if you could believe it … the deva of this entire lake. It sounds vast and magnificent, just like the lake. It is incredible.

So I asked it: Are you the deva of the body of water here? And it said [in a very low voice]: Yes, I am. Only its voice was much nicer than my own, and much deeper …

Yesss, I aaammm.

It sounded like thunder in the skies.

Then it said: What do you call it?  And I said: We call it Lake Piru, or Piru.

But it did not seem very impressed by that. So I said: But what do you call it?

And the Deva of the Lake said: We don’t call it that. We call it … and then it used a very low voice, the kind that resonates in your heart. And it feels like a wave that has a slight ‘bump’ to it, like waves [on a body of water].

“Period and Sound of the Waves”
Soundtrack and Words
Spoken by Alice B. Clagett

The ‘period’ of the waves is like this: Click … click … click … click … click … click ….. That fast.

The sound of the waves is like this, but very much lower: Luuuuuuuuuuu …

That is the name of this body of water.

I was talking along right now. I was really talking to myself, and I said: I guess that’s the sound that the air makes when it walks over the water.

And somebody else said … I say it might be a senior nature spirit … It said: Wrong! That’s the sound that the water makes when it walks through the air. It might have been a Native American guide.

. . . . .

I have further word on the Deva of Lake Piru. I heard that same voice.

I said to it first: Are you a mountain lion?

And it said: Well, we might be a mountain lion.

And I said: Well, if you are not a mountain lion, what are you?

I could see a hand reaching down and patting the water. It said: We like the water.

It said: We like the water.

I said: How many of you are there?

And it said like this … [Holds hand palm forward, fingers up]: We are five.

Five … I don’t know what! … that like the water.

Sounds a little like gnomes, but gnomes do not like water. Maybe this is a new type of nature spirit, and not a deva … I do not know!

. . . . .

Ok, ‘curiouser and curiouser’. I said: Does each of you like a particular place in the water?

And it said: We all like the water everywhere.

Then I said: But what are you?

And it said: We are the wind that laps the water.

Do you suppose they might be zephyrs? … Maybe very large zephyrs; very large Spirits of the Wind … or very old and sage ones.

. . . . .

I just felt a gentle breeze coming up from the lake, and I heard that spokesman of the zephyrs say: What’s your name?

And somebody said: Dharm Darshan [which was my old spiritual name] … And then it said: Dharm Darshan, here we are! … and I could feel the breeze touching my face.

Down there by the water I just heard the voice of the zephyr say: Oh, God, Dharm Darshan’s gone!

And then those children’s voices said: Dharm Darshan went away!

Maybe the children are the children of the zephyrs.

I was talking to that zephyr spokesman. It is way down by the water. And I said: What a beautiful place.

And the zephyr said: Yeah, it is! Heaven made that place!

I turned around and said: How did you know about Heaven?

And the zephyr said: The angels came down and told us about that place.

I am going away from the lake just now, and down the hill. And I heard that being say: Dear heart, would you thank Dharm Darshan?

“Voice of a Fly”

Then a little fly buzzed past my right ear, and said in a tiny voice …

Thank you, Dharm Darshan!

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about the sound of sunlight. There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

There has been a slow-moving, Earth-directed CME (coronal mass ejection) impacting Earth’s magnetosphere today. I was out for a walk in the afternoon, in the hills. After awhile I sat down on a rock. And the left side of my head was in the direction of the sun that was falling down from high up in the sky, onto the left side of my head.

After awhile I started to hear the strangest sound, like dried bluebells singing in the wind. But it was coming from the top left side of my head. And then I realized it was the sound of the rays of sunlight coming down. I have never heard sunlight before.

I started to walk back. And then I tried standing with the right side of my head to the sun, to see if I could hear the tiny little dried bluebells sound singing in the right side of my head.

The sound continued in the left side of my head, as if the cells inside there were rejoicing with the sunlight. Then I began to hear it on the righthand side too. So it is sunlight singing today, through the coronal mass ejection.

I have a visual that reminds me a little of what I can hear right now. Here is some sort of sunflower, a very tall sunflower waving in the breeze. Beneath it there is a field of dried California oats that might be contributing to that sound I am hearing, because the wind is blowing through them.

Up at the top of the sunflower plant you can see three or four blossoms heading in different directions, blowing in the wind …

And if I zoom backward, there you can see the sunlight streaming down …

The blossoms on the left and right side at the top there are like the places where I hear the sunlight singing inside my head, depending on what side is most turned towards the sun.

If I were the sunflower tree, then the one in back there would be the one that is singing the most, because it would be closest to the descending rays of sunlight.

Hornet Nest: An Ill Wind Blows . by Alice B. Clagett

Video filmed on 25 August 2015 and published on 28 August 2015; blog published on 27 June 2020

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • HORNET NEST: AN ILL WIND BLOWS

Dear Ones,

Here is a video of a hornet nest. The video is without words, but it was for me an ill omen, and part of a story of many such portents wafting through the astral airs during this and a subsequent exploration I undertook near the central part of the eastern shore of Vallecito Reservoir in late summer and early fall of 2015. My explorations are described below the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE
[The video has no words.]

 

HORNET NEST: AN ILL WIND BLOWS
[The below is not in the video.]

The below video of a hornet nest was one of many ill omens I experienced on a walk into the relatively barren area between Pine Point Campground and 5 Branches Camper Park on the central part of the eastern side of Vallecito Reservoir, Colorado.

The omens I sensed on the astral plane had to do with a man who, as astral rumor would have it, was apparently lying in wait in the scrub trees on the side of the road away from the lake, to catch and kill unwary passersby as a hunting sport. The psychic intel was so vivid that, on seeing the hornet nest I hightailed it out of there.

About a month later, on 19 September 2015, curiosity about what was going on, on the eastern side of Lake Vallecito, drew me to explore the slightly more northerly area of Elk Point Lodge, Middle Mountain Campground on Vallecito Reservoir. As well, I stopped by Pine River Campground and Pine River Trailhead, which are off a spur of Route 501 north-northeast of Middle Mountain Campground.

When I visited those areas, there were ill omens everywhere. For instance, I got a cold reception at Elk Point Lodge; I guess it is for a different crowd, maybe men only? At Middle Mountain Campground, I got astral intel regarding sinking of shrink-wrapped body parts off shore, to do with the Dylan Redwine case.

Pine River Campground was stunning, as was Pine River Trailhead. However, on walking the trail some little distance, I got an astral vision of a man high up on the the steep mountain on the west side of the trail. That man, according to the astral intel, was a sharpshooter intent on stalking and picking off lone hikers on the trail. The intensity of the omen caused me to turn back to the trailhead and call it a day.

Here are some of the videos I made when I got back to the trailhead that day …

In retrospect, the portents and omens I had during late summer and early autumn of 2015 may have had to do with the feelings of the leaders and members of a Durango meditation group from which I formally withdrew a year prior, on 10 August 2014.

It could have been I was picking up the negative emotions of the leaders and members of the group, along with similar energy threads to do with stalking of humans as sport by some deranged person in the outlying areas of Durango, and the high anxiety of everyone in Bayfield and Durango, Colorado, at that time regarding the death of the child Dylan Redwine, whose father lived at Vallecito Lake, as I recall.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I was outside in the backyard this afternoon, cleaning off the walls of the house and sweeping the walkway. I have a story to tell you about a being that I heard while I was out there.

First I would like to explain about the honeybees that are newly arrived in my backyard. It goes like this: Way over here … [shows wall on one side of the backyard] … in the side wall for my backyard, there is a hole in the cinder block. In the hole in the cinder block there is a hive of honeybees.

All day long, during the daylight hours, from that hole fly out a lazy line of honeybees that go all over the place. One of their favorite places is over by a rosemary bush on the other side of the yard. I will show you. [shows rosemary bush]

Here is the rosemary bush in bloom. You probably cannot see them, but there are honeybees just about everywhere here, flying around gathering nectar, I guess. After they gather nectar, they fly across this cement walk here [shows cement walk] to the edge of this water here [shows edge of water].

During the daylight hours, by the water there is always this line of honeybees drinking the water. Do you see them?

They are around here on this side of the yard all the time. That is a very important thing to know for the rest of my story.

I was thinking I would sweep off these stairs here [shows patio stairs], and I did a little sweeping. Then I got to this flower bush here …

I thought: I will just lift this flower bush up and sweep underneath it. There are bound to be some leaves underneath of there. So I picked up the edge, and got ready to sweep underneath. And I heard the strangest sound in my left ear!

Something came flying up to my left ear and it said, in a kind of a mean voice … a kind of a hissing voice …

What’s your name … Alice? You leave those flowers alone! Don’t you touch those flowers! Don’t you hurt those flowers!

. . . . .

I carefully put the flowers back down, and I said to myself: Who could that possibly have been? I have never run across a being like that before! What kind of a being could that be?

I started to put my broom away, and then I realized I had been talking to a bee! It is a first! It is my first conversation with a honeybee!

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO: SOUNDTRACK AND WORDS

 

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

Here I am in Rose Valley. I was listening to another ghost story while I was walking … a sad ghost story. And it goes like this …

There was a lady named Rose. Her mother was ill, and she was helping take care of her mother during her final illness. She found out one Christmas that her sisters and her uncle had removed a seventh of the money from her father’s trust fund that was destined to go to her and to her sisters and brother. They removed it that December, and she wondered what to do.

So she talked to the lawyers, and the lawyers said: Just ask them to give the money back. About that time was time for her to return to her own home, out here in Rose Valley, and do the work she had to do at home. While she was there, her mother became very ill. So she went back, as soon as she could, to her mother’s house, and arrived just in time, because her mother passed on that very day. That was the lucky thing. She loved her mother so much!

Then after the funeral, she brought up the issue of the missing money to her sisters. She said it would be best to put it back, before an accounting was made, so that everything could be legal. And her sisters became very angry.

But when the accounting was made, and the family got together, they handed the money back to the father’s trust account. And then came the time when a voting had to occur on the family business. But because of the removal of the money, Rose felt she could not support the family business; and by her veto, the family business was disbanded. That made her sisters and their spouses very, very angry.

Still, over the years, she thought there might come a time when they would be a family again.

One time at Thanksgiving, one of her sisters invited her to join the family for Thanksgiving dinner, which involved going quite some way from Rose Valley, I understand, and going to that sister’s area. There she stayed with her uncle, because her sisters had not agreed to let her stay with them.

Her uncle had a little money, and he was an unmarried man. While she was there, he mentioned that he had disinherited her. He Did not give a reason; he just said that.

The next day was Thanksgiving, so she went over to her sister’s place, with her uncle. All the sisters and brothers and husbands and wives and children were there. There was a lively conversation at the table, but she was not included in it.

The food was very good, very good indeed. And everyone had their own goblet of water, too, beside their plate. At the end of the dinner, people were talking and laughing and having a good time together, and ignoring her … I think ‘social snub’ they call it.

She lifted up the glass of water by her plate, getting ready to drink some. Suddenly, all the conversation at the table stopped. Everyone took a deep breath in … and held their breath! She looked at the water in her hand, and she waited a minute. No one breathed. No one started talking.

So she took the water out to the kitchen and poured it out.

A day or so later the family was to meet at her uncle’s place, and she was going to cook dinner for them. It was snowing. She got the dinner ready. And an hour before the dinner, her sister called and said that they decided not to come after all.

The next day she needed to go back home. So she left for home again, which was at quite some distance. She called her uncle up, on the way, and asked him how he liked the dinner she had prepared. And he said: To tell the truth, I threw it out.

Some years went by. Rose wondered if there might have been poison in that glass of water … and if there might, why might it have been there? What might have been the cause of that? She thought: People who would poison … poison a sister … must be used to killing. They must have done it before.

And the horrible thought came to her, that her mother, whom she loved so much, might have been killed by her sisters and her uncle so that they could get her money. Worse yet, she wondered: Would that same fate befall her, one day?

And so she lived her life here in this beautiful valley … pretty much a loner … happy with the birds and the flowers and the wild animals … glad that the Sun rejoiced in her presence, as she rejoiced in its.

That is the story of Rose and Rose Valley, to the end of her days on Earth.

Nature Spirits Photo Series: Faerie Homes . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 7 August 2019

Dear Ones,

In recent months I have been a little more in contact with the nature spirits I call elves, faeries, brownies,  and gnomes.

Here is the photo series: Faerie Homes. I also recently published a blog on Elf Homes …

Link: “Nature Spirits Photo Series: Elf Homes,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 6 August 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dRR ..

As can be seen from the photos below, faeries love flowers.

Like the elves, faeries like sunlight that is speckled or hazy or dappled; rainbow-colored flecks and sprinkles of sunlight; and the soft colors of the sky at dawn and just after sunset. Both faeries and elves like nights when the moon is bright and many stars are sparkling in the sky; at least, it is easy to see them on those sorts of nights!

Here is more about faeries and elves, but not to do with today’s photos …

Faeries and elves love the creatures of the forest … deer and foxes, skunks and badgers and porcupines, chipmunks and squirrels, for instance. Also, the less assuming creatures of the forest, such as pack rats and mice, and bats, toads and frogs.

Faeries, in particular, love birds of all sorts. Also, and especially, they love bears, as bears are good to ride upon, and fun to tickle on the ears. You are more likely to find elves near a sleeping bear, unless they feel especially mischievous (which, when I come to think of it, is quite frequently the case).

As is well known by those who delight in the company of nature spirits, both faeries and elves like damselflies and dragonflies. Catching a glimpse of the flittering wings of these latter beings often signifies the nearby presence of elves or faeries.

Nature Spirits Photo Series: Elf Homes . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 6 August 2019

Dear Ones,

In recent months I have been a little more in contact with the nature spirits I call elves, faeries, brownies,  and gnomes.

Here is the fourth of four elf photo collections in a photo series: Elf Homes. The other three elf photo collections, which appear in other blogs, are: Elf Energy, Singles Collection; Elf Energy, Diptych Collection; and Elf Energy: Triptych Collection …

Link: “Nature Spirits Photo Series: Elf Energy,” photos by Alice B. Clagett, compiled on 1 April 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-hfo ..

I have also published a blog on Faerie Homes …

Link: “Nature Spirits Photo Series: Faerie Homes,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 7 August 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dT3 ..

As can be seen from the photos below, elves like trees and forests, forest glades, the brooks that meander through meadows and woodland, and the little ponds that the brooks make there. Mostly, elves leave flowers to the faeries, but they love the flowers of trees, and they like plants whose flowers are quite small or else green, and ferns, which have no flowers.

Like the faeries, elves like sunlight that is speckled or hazy or dappled; rainbow-colored flecks and sprinkles of sunlight; and the soft colors of the sky at dawn and just after sunset. Both elves and faeries like nights when the moon is bright and many stars are sparkling in the sky; at least, it is easy to see them on those sorts of nights!

Here is more about elves and fairies, but not to do with today’s photos …

Like the faeries, elves love the creatures of the forest … deer and foxes, skunks and badgers and porcupines, chipmunks and squirrels, for instance. Also, the less assuming creatures of the forest, such as pack rats and mice, and bats, toads and frogs.

You are more likely to find elves near a sleeping bear, unless they feel especially mischievous (which, when I come to think of it, is quite frequently the case).

As is well known by those who delight in the company of nature spirits, both faeries and elves like damselflies and dragonflies. Catching a glimpse of the flittering wings of these latter beings often signifies the nearby presence of elves or faeries.

History of Martians on Earth: The Ancient Ones . by Alice B. Clagett

I have added this blog to my blog categories: History and Myths … as it is, to the more-than-4-billion-year racial memory of the dazzlingly varied terrestrial Martian colonists, History, and far better History than that of humankind till now.

Yet in a way it is also Myth, as the context in which a star race holds its History is the foundation of its understanding of life’s purpose and of its import; indeed, of its very right of claim to existence in our Universe.

History of Martians on Earth: The Ancient Ones

“My understanding is that the bacteria eking out a living on their own here on planet Earth … and which do not form colonies such as those found within mammals … are known as the ‘Ancient Ones’ of the Martian species collectively termed, here on Earth, ‘the Elder Race’.

“The Ancient Ones of these peoples were here on Earth before humankind, and were subject to the perils of predation by insects, spiders, and other beings. Thus the advisability of finding a safer ecological niche, such as within a mammalian gastrointestinal tract, circulatory system (whether blood of lymph); or in some cases less beneficial to the mammal, the muscle or nervous system.

“In the view of the colonists, the Ancient Ones are the pioneers, the very brave ones, whose existence might be cut off at any time by one slash of the razor-sharp mandibles of that fierce and loathsome being, the Ant. To be truthful, up close and personal, I see ants in the same light.

Specimen from Brackenridge Field Laboratory, Austin, Texas, USA.”

“To a Martian bacterium, an ant must represent a threat a little like this …

“Or, considering the size factor, the threat may be more like this …

“Humankind, being so very large compared to bacteria, might well be considered a capacious, hospitable home to them, a refuge from the rapacious terrors of the world at large. When you think about it from the point of view of a bacterium, one gulp by any number of beings inside whom life is impossible or improbable, or one springtime shower, or a too-warm day in the desert, might be the end of one family line. Here is more about this …”

Dear Ones,

In the event power grids went down because of a Carrington event, an earthquake, a hurricane, or other natural disasters, it is good to have basic survival supplies.

ALICE’S SHORT, COST-EFFECTIVE LIST OF EMERGENCY SUPPLIES        top

I have done some research on short-term emergency food and water supplies, and have a few less-well-known favorites …

Fats

  • Ghee, or clarified butter, is a good source of fats, and keeps, after the jar is opened, for 3 months without refrigeration. With refrigeration (which might be one of the non-electric refrigeration methods mentioned below), it can keep for about a year. You can make your own clarified butter, or buy it: see, for example, “Deep Pure Cow Ghee Clarified Butter from India, 64 Ounce,” at Amazon ..
  • Another robustly caloric source of fat is bacon drippings, strained. These keep 3 weeks without refrigeration, according to the internet. However, in my youth, we kept a metal container of it at the back of the stove; we never refrigerated it, and it was always good.

Complex Carbohydrates

  • Instant mashed potatoes keep for a year or a year and a half at room temperature. A meal can be prepared from them by just boiling water. There are 40-pound bags of potato flakes available online. See, for example, “Instant Potato Flakes, Bulk 40 Lb. Case,” at Amazon .. The price of these has gone up in the last year.
  • Among complex carbohydrates, here is another option: Instant rice is available at Walmart. This product is more cost-effective in bulk; see, for example, “Saratoga Farms Instant Rice ValueBUCKET (1/2 cup servings size/186 Total Servings),” at Amazon ..
  • Pastas and bottled tomato sauces are also good complex carbohydrate staples

Protein

  • Walmart has pretty good deals on powdered milk, which keeps at room temperature about 2 years, if kept away from heat.
  • Canned, condensed milk is a country staple; since it usually has sugar in it, as well as protein, it would be good for making deserts.
  • Canned baked beans are also pretty cheap at Walmart, and hearty. Smaller cans are better, because less subject to spoilage after opening
  • Bugs, including …
    • Crickets and grasshoppers: Pull off heads, carefully remove entrails, legs and wings, and then dry roast
    • Ants: Boil 6 minutes to neutralize formic acid
    • Termites: Shake them out of a rotten log, and roast them in a pan
    • Grubs: Pull them out of a rotten log, skewer and cook over flame till crispy on the outside
    • Sow bugs: Boil thoroughly so as to kill any parasites in them. Do not drink the boiling water; just eat the cooked bugs
    • Earthworms, stink bugs, and scorpions are also said to be edible when properly prepared, but I will pass on those.

Greens

  • Weeds Many wild area weeds and most city weeds are edible; however, many require cooking. Weeds are regional; look online for weeds in your area, and recipes for them.
    • For instance, this book looks pretty good for Los Angeles wild areas: “Southern California Food Plants: Wild Edibles of the Valleys, Foothills, Coast and Beyond the Valleys, Foothills, Coast, and Beyond,” by Charles W. Kane, at Amazon ..
    • And here are some edible Los Angeles city weeds: chickweed, dandelion, fennel, lamb’s quarters, purslane, red clover and sorrel: I would go to Google Images and print out photos of each of these.
    • If it tastes bitter or tough, it will need to be cooked. If you are not sure, if it smells odd or repugnant, or if the leaves are blue-green, do not eat it.
  • Sprouts are a great source of greens. You will need sproutable alfalfa seeds, and also a sprouter. Sprouters come in two varieties: fancy and down-home.
    • Here is an example of the fancy ones: “Deluxe Kitchen Crop 4-Tray Seed Sprouter by VICTORIO VKP1200,” at Amazon .. It looks to me like the top tray might be watered, and then the water might trickle down through the various trays, and out the bottom? If so, this would be ideal, as it would help prevent rot and mildew. Water daily. Keep in a shady window so they will germinate.
    • Here is a down-home sprouter: Put your alfalfa seeds in a mason jar. Cut a piece of cloth mesh or cheesecloth, and put it over the jar opening. Screw on the ring, but not the cap. Add water daily, swirl around, let the water drain out, and keep in a shady window so they will germinate.
  • Seaweeds. See Link: “Where to Harvest Seaweed and How to Eat It,” 14 October 2015, http://www.foragesf.com/blog/2015/10/14/where-to-harvest-seaweed-and-how-to-eat-it ..

Water

  • There are one-time-use water containers that can be placed in your bathtub and filled with water for short-term emergency storage: look online for the WaterBob (100 gallon capacity) and Aquapod (60 gallon capacity). Here is a video comparing the two: Video: “WaterBob/Aqua Pod,” by Guns and Accessories, 26 October 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX2Ih4GZdic .. One would think that a good stopper for the tub would suffice, but if the stopper should leak, all the water will be lost. Better safe than sorry. Before drinking this water or using it for food preparation, though, purify or boil it (see below).
  • You can also fill your sinks with water, using either a water-tight container in the sink, or a sink stopper. As above, before drinking this water or using it for food preparation, purify or boil it (see below).
  • By way of additional storage, you can reuse gallon water containers by filling them with water. Add 8 drops of Clorox regular (not scented) bleach per gallon, shake it up, and let stand for 30 minutes before consuming. Before drinking this water or using it for food preparation, purify or boil it (see below).
  • Here’s a backup water storage method to use in case your bathtub water system fails, through a leak happening with the WaterBob, or the tub stopper. If you live in a house and have local trash collection, it is possible to store water in your trash bin. The advantage of these bins, in Los Angeles, is that they are made of very sturdy plastic, and have wheels and lids. The disadvantage is that the lids are not lockable or airtight. We have 3 kinds of trash bins here in Los Angeles: One for trash, another for yard clippings, and another for recyclables. In a pinch, the cleanest of these bins could be washed out and filled with water for drinking and cooking. The next most clean could be washed out and filled with water for personal hygiene. The third and dirtiest trash bin could be washed out and filled with water to pour into the toilet bowl to flush the toilet. Water so stored must be purified or boiled before being used for food or drink (see below).
  • If you have no trash bins, a very good backup water-storage system is the kind of plastic outdoor wheeled trashcan with a locking lid. If you do not have that, then a very sturdy plastic trash basket or plastic bin from a dollar store, may be of use, but care ought to be exercised to buy one sturdy enough that it will not collapse with the weight of the water. Water so stored must be purified or boiled before being used for food or drink (see below), and covered between uses to prevent contamination.
  • If there is no deodorant disk or other chemicals in your toilet tank, the water in the tank can be drunk. Water so stored must be purified or boiled before being used for food or drink (see below).

How to Purify Water Before Drinking It Or Using It for Cooking

  • Keep on hand “Potable Aqua Water Tablets,” sold at Amazon and elsewhere. These can be used to purify stored water.
  • An inexpensive substitute for “Potable Aqua Water Tablets” is Clorox Regular Bleach (not the scented kind, or any other kind but regular, as these latter contain chemicals that may harm you). The rule of thumb is: 2 drops of Clorox Regular Bleach per quart of water, 8 drops per gallon, and so on. You could also use New Concentrated Clorox Regular Bleach instead: 2 drops of New Concentrated Clorox Regular Bleach per quart of water, or 6 drops per gallon of water. Shake or mix thoroughly after adding, and then let sit 30 minutes before using. See Link: “Disaster Preparedness and Purifying Water,” by Dr. Laundry, 31 October 2012, at “Clorox,” … https://www.clorox.com/dr-laundry/disaster-preparedness-purifying-water/#ioRPegUxXpX8MLw5.99 ..
  • If you run out of water tablets and Clorox, or if you do not like their taste, and the water you have on hand is cloudy, let it settle, then separate the top part, that is clear, and strain it through a cloth. Next, boil it at a rolling boil for at least one minute, then let it cool, then drink.
  • Even for clear water … as from the tub or the toilet tank … it would be best to boil it at a rolling boil for one minute, then let it cool, then drink.
  • For those with a bigger budget, there is the LifeStraw Family 1.0 Water Purifier, a drinking water filter that hands on the wall or on the shower railing; it is said to be good for 3 years of water purifying. Smaller versions are also available. Sold at Amazon …

Beverages

  • Teas, the ingredients for which can also be garnered in the wild
  • Instant coffee, instant Coffeemate, sugar

Desserts

  • Jello, or
  • Add condensed milk to instant rice

Spices

  • Iodized salt, to prevent goiter
  • Ground black pepper, which is said, in India, to purify the blood
  • Dried citrus peel or ‘zest’, to use in sun tea … a good source of Vitamin C, which prevents scurvy. Dehydrate your own citrus peels, or see “Frontier Orange Peel Granules Certified Organic, 16 Ounce Bag,” at Amazon ..
  • Rose hips, wild or cultivated; also a good source of Vitamin C
  • Dried onion and garlic, said to be good for their mild antibiotic qualities of their ingredient allicin.
  • Fenugreek seeds, said to be good for fever, stomach disorders, diabetes, insomnia, inflammations, and wounds
  • Radish seeds, cultivated or wild, roasted and smashed; or radish seed pods (green), raw or cooked … said to prevent cancer, and also to be good for fatigue, indigestion, and as a blood cleanse

Fire Starting

  • Several large boxes of wooden strike-on-box matches: Here is an image of that type of matches (which are relatively hard to find in the stores) …  https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/OA0AAOSwzaJX2fG3/s-l300.jpg ..
  • In case the matches run out: magnesium fire starter; see “SE FS374 All-Weather Emergency 2-IN-1 Fire Starter & Magnesium Fuel Bar (Everything you need to start a fire!),” at Amazon ..
  • Magnifying glass or fresnel lenses to start a fire with sunshine; for the latter, see “Fresnel Lens 4-Pack Credit Card Size Pocket Magnifier & Firestarter,” at Amazon ..

Body Heat

  • Have blankets on hand to preserve body heat in cold weather.
  • If you do not have blankets, wear your warmest clothes, and get into a big black leaf bag to preserve body heat
  • Layers of newspapers  can act as emergency blankets
  • Have firewood on hand, if you have a fireplace. See also, fire starting, above

Cooking Heat

  • Have charcoal on hand if you have a barbecue.
  • A sterno stove and sterno cans are a cheap source of cooking heat in a short-term emergency. Available at Amazon ..

Sanitation

  • Keep plenty of emergency toilet paper supplies on hand.
    • A face towel or kitchen towel, which will be washable, will do in a pinch.
    • In the old days, people used to use corn cobs and pages torn from phone catalogs instead of toilet paper.
    • A handful of grass can also be used.
  • If you have plenty of water, then some can be poured directly in the toilet to flush it, even if your house water is not working.
  • If you do not have water, buy big, black yard bags to line the toilet with, and dispose of the bags when full.
  • If you have access to dirt, you can dig a simple pit for a squat toilet. Throw a little dirt in after every use. When full, put dirt over and dig another hole.

MORE THINGS TO CONSIDER        top

Planning Together as a Family for a Natural Disaster

Families have special concerns about getting in touch with each other during a natural disaster. See Link: “On Planning with Family for a Natural Disaster,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 11 September 2017 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-7Db ..

Neighborhood Watch for Crime Prevention

Neighborhood Watch programs are an excellent way to build community spirit and prevent crime during natural disasters.

It is best to meet neighbors in advance, elect a Neighborhood Watch block captain, attend the meetings held for community members at your local police department, and keep the communication lines open with neighbors through programs such as Nextdoor.com … https://nextdoor.com/ 

That way, when an emergency arises, you will already know your neighbors.

In addition, you may get to know which folks on your block may need special help during an emergency … such as the housebound, those with young children, and so on.

First Aid

  • Western Medicine First Aid Book, with simple illustrations. Red Cross has a good one.
  • Alternative Medicine Books: Books for moxibustion, acupuncture, and acupressure, and herbal medicine using wild herbs local to your area.
  • Psychology/Psychiatry … Here is a wonderful yogic resource for psychological self-help in times of crisis, when no psychologist or psychiatrist, and no psychopharmacological medications may be available: Kundalini Research Institute’s “Crisis Kit” … http://www.harisingh.com/KRI_Crisis_Kit.pdf … good for both men and women, I feel.
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth
    • Herb for Abortion and to Induce Labor: Watercress (Nasturtium officinale) grows wild in Los Angeles riparian habitats, including canals. It is an edible wild; but care must be taken while pregnant, as it induces abortion. At term, I have heard it can be used to induce labor.  Here is a photo of watercress …  http://nathistoc.bio.uci.edu/plants/Brassicaceae/Watercress%20(Nasturtium%20officinale)/William%20R%20Mason%20Regional%20Park,%20Irvine,%20CA%208-28-11%20004.jpg ..
    • Childbirth: Optimum Fetal Positioning. Childbirth is bound to happen, and there may be no doctors available in time. In a survival situation, position of the fetus during childbirth has a lot to do with survival of mother and child during childbirth. As I understand it, a breech baby is life-threatening in a survival situation. There are ways to turn the baby in the womb for optimum fetal positioning;
    • Delayed Umbilical Cord Cutting. As well, do not cut the umbilical cord until it stops pulsating and turns white; the cord supplies the newborn with vital nutrients for a little while after birth.
  • First Aid Kit. Be sure and pack …
    • a big bottle of One-a-Day vitamin mineral supplements
    • a big bottle of aspirin or ibuprofen,
    • Midol for cramps,
    • plenty of contraceptives and contraceptive ointments,
    • bandaids, gauze bandaging, extra tubes of 3-way antibiotic ointment
    • Nitrile or Latex Exam Gloves, available at Amazon .. These are either sterile or nonsterile; the latter is much less expensive, but not as safe in preventing infection.
    • Pepto Bismol for heartburn, indigestion, nausea, upset stomach and diarrhea
    • and Castor Oil, which is antibacterial and antifungal, and strengthens the immune system. It is also laxative, cathartic, and purgative. It also induces abortion. At term, I’ve heard it can be used to induce labor.
    • Target has Betadine (povidone-iodine) 10%, which would be good as a hand wash before treating wounds and assisting with childbirth, and also as a wound disinfectant and infection preventive for the vagina after childbirth. Read the instructions to find out whether it ought to be diluted before being applied.
    • Povidone-iodine 2.5% can be used to treat eye infections in newborns caused by Chlamydia and bacteria.  A 10% solution would need to be diluted to 1/4 the sold strength to be used for the eyes of newborns, and apparently ought to be pure; for instance. it should contain no detergent; see Link: “The Ocular Application of Povidone-Iodine,” by Sherwin J Isenberg, MD, and Leonard Apt MD, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1705857/ ..
    • Moxa Rolls (Amazon has these) for moxibustion; acupuncture needles, and instructions
  • Wild Herb to Staunch Wound Bleeding. Note that the root of yarrow (Achillea millefolium), which grows wild in most parts of the United States, can be used to staunch the flow of blood in wounds. It is also anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and pain relieving.

Tools

It is always good to keep on hand plenty of hand tools (as opposed to power tools, which will not be useful for long in an extended emergency situation. This ought to include …

  • woodworking tools,
  • building tools,
  • brickworking tools,
  • animal husbandry tools, and
  • gardening tools
  • cooking and food preparation tools … the usual, and also including …
    • including a mortar and pestle for grinding dried herbs and seeds,
    • and a rolling pin and bread-rolling board

Weapons

Firearms will not be much help in a long-term survival situation, because bullets will be scarce. Instead, I suggest buying …

  • Knives, both for defense and for survival activities
  • Slingshot and ammo balls (clay, steel, or both).
    • Consider getting the collapsible slingshot with a wrist support, extra latex tubing, and extra slings.
    • Consider buying a slingshot with a removable arrow guide, such as the “Marksman Pocket Hunter,” at Amazon ..
    • Or, if you have a slingshot without a removable arrow guide, your slingshot can be converted to a bow which works for up to about 10 yards, for hunting small and large game and for fishing. Lightweight, portable substitute for a  bow, and is easy to use in confined quarters, such as thickets. You will need …
      • 4 wide, thick rubberbands (#64, for example),
      • 1 keyring (1 inch diameter might be good)
      • and arrows. The fletching (feathers) on the arrows needs to be able to slide without much friction through the keyring. Used arrows are ok. I’ve heard that even duct tape can be used for fletching, in a pinch. Note that arrows have different tips for practice, small game, large game and fishing. Weight of tips also varies. Blunt tips can be used to stun small game, and these are easier to make.
      • Here are videos showing how to do the conversion …
  • 2 good bows, within your own drawing strength, along with spare string and plenty of arrows. See note on arrow tips under slingshot, above.  Also, extra fletching and fletching glue.
  • Crossbow and arrows, if your budget allows it, along with spare parts.
  • Atlatl (spear-thrower) and fletched darts … see, for example, “Nanticoke Atlatl (Simple) and Three Five Foot Fletched Darts,” at Amazon ..
  • Boomerang … for example, the “Fury Martial Arts All-Wood Boomerang (22 -Inch)” at  Amazon looks like a good length.
  • Spear
  • Bo staff or club to be used as a weapon …
    • Hardwood bo’s are available online; for example, at SparringGearSet … https://www.sparringgearset.com and at Karate Supply … https://www.karatesupply.com ..
    • a sturdy, 6-foot length of hardwood dowel may be an inexpensive substitute. If only pine dowel is available at your local lumberyard or hardware store, make sure there are no knots or imperfections in the wood, and that the outside is finished (to avoid getting splinters in your hand). Pine is not very strong, so it might be best to get another length or two of 6-foot dowel in case your bo breaks.
    • A wooden baseball bat is a good, inexpensive club. These can be found at thrift stores, and are good for short-range combat, and especially help women, children, and older people even the odds.
  • Ma: It is much to the advantage of women, children, and older people to stay outside the reach (or ma) of a potential assailant, however. In practical terms, this means at least 3 feet away, and 5 feet away if the person is lithe and combative. Thus the baseball bat is best used as defense at a doorway or in a hallway, if there is not other form of defense. There the bo, which is longer, could not be used freely.
  • See also Link: “How to build primitive weapons and tools from natural bone, rocks, shells, antlers, or animal teeth,” by Wilderness Arena, 31 December 2015 … http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/tools/how-to-build-primitive-weapons-and-tools-from-natural-bone-rocks-shells-antlers-or-animal-teeth ..

Twine, Rope, Duct Tape, Trash Bags, and Tarps

These supplies are very useful in emergencies.

  • Twine and rope have a hundred uses, ongoing, and are time-consuming to fabricate by hand.
  • Duct tape has a limited shelf life, but is a good emergency supply for on-the-road car repairs and for short-term emergencies.
  • Trash bags can be used to store food, can be placed over open water containers to keep the water clean, and can be used to hold waste till trash collection resumes.
  • Tarp can keep your roof rain-proof, even when damaged, and to keep firewood and equipment dry even when it is stored outside.

Spare Lumber, Nails, and Screws

Spare lumber is useful for boarding up broken windows and doors, for instance.

  • 3/4 inch plywood sheeting, 2x4s, and planking
  • Several kegs of nails, including roofing tacks, 8 penny nails, 10 penny nails, and mason nails
  • Screws in assorted sizes

Getting Viable Seed for a Vegetable Garden

In recent years, I have had trouble raising vegetables from seeds bought at hardware stores. Is this a Monsanto thing? Have I lost the knack?

If you have been having the same trouble, it might be good to ask around and find a viable source of vegetable and grain seeds to keep on hand in the event a truck garden comes in handy.

Viable seed might also be a good form of barter in the event of a longer-term survival situation. It would be a ‘cash crop’ … planting viable seed would produce more viable seed, which could once more be used for barter.

Canning Supplies and Solar Food Dehydrators

Of course, it would be good to brush up on canning skills, and to have on hand mason jars with good lids, and maybe a solar food dehydrator.

Amazon … www.amazon.com … sells both.

For the food dehydrator, to prevent fly specks, it might be good to buy

Cheesecloth, Muslin Cloth, Clothes Fabric, and Coat Fabric

In a long-term survival situation, lengths or bolts of these fabrics would be very helpful.

  • Cheesecloth is useful for cooking: in making cheese, in canning, in straining, and so on.
  • Muslin is good for making diapers for babies and undergarments for everyone. It can also be used and reused for menstrual pads.
  • A bolt each of clothes fabric and coat fabric could provide for clothing and outerware needs for several years.

These supplies can be bought as yardage from Amazon or fabric stores.

Treadle Sewing Machine

If there is no electricity, then a traditional treadle (foot-powered) sewing machine would be a good choice.

It looks like Lehman’s offers these new at … https://www.lehmans.com/product/traditional-sewing-machine-cabinet-and-treadle/ ..

Cloth Loom and Spinning Wheel

Cloth looms and spinning wheels are pretty expensive, but I feel they might be an important staple, and a skill to use in bartering for needed supplies in a survival situation.

Anyone can buy a book on how to build these items, and blueprints might serve very well in future. For example …

Link: “Anyone Can Build a Spinning Wheel,” by W. C. West (1975-06-01) … https://www.amazon.com/dp/0913664065/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me= … May be available used at a reasonable price. I gather from the web page that this is a blueprint book.

The loom-building books I found online look pretty daunting to me … perhaps less so to a handyman. I gather from reader comments that this is a pretty good book …

FISHING        top

Fishing Rod, Fish Catching Net, and Bait

Fishing Rod Kits. Fishing rod kits are available at Amazon.com .. It is good to get a good fishing rod repair kit too, and extra line, hooks, and sinkers.

Fish Catching Net. It would be good to get a fish-catching net too, as many good suppers have been lost for want of a good fish net. I like the ones with telescoping handles and a flat bottom edge, such as “Fiblink Folding Aluminum Fishing Landing Net Fish Net with Extending Telescoping Pole Handle” available at Amazon.com ..

Bait. Without bait, there is no way to fish. This video suggests putting crushed green-walnut husks in a trash cup of water, turning over a rotten log, and pouring the water on the ground. Worms do not like the green-walnut-scented water, and come up for easy catching …

Video: “walnut husk secret for catching worms, and illegal for fish,” by Billy Joe Denny, 31 July 2014 …  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M35erdt_r7E ..

Worms do not like being flooded with water, so if you do not have green-walnut husks handy, try turning over a rotten log and then just pouring lots of water there; with luck, worms will surface for catching.

Fish Traps and Cast Nets

Fish Traps. Everyone thinks of fishing rods, but the easy way to get seafood on the table is a fish trap,

  • Whether half-dome shaped, for estuarial or still water trapping, such as this one:

    “Goture Portable Folded Fishing Net Fish Shrimp Minnow Crayfish Crab Baits Cast Mesh Trap automatic,” at Amazon.com ..

  • Or cylindrical in shape, for faster moving waters. This one looks good and sturdy: “Tomahawk Rigid Single Door Extra Large Fish Trap,” at Amazon.com ..

Minnow and Crawdad Traps. Minnows are a staple of Asian diets, and far more plentiful and available than larger fish. Thus I feel a minnow trap might come in handier than most people think.

See, for example, “Frabill Minnow Trap, 8 x 8 x 18-Inch, Black,” at Amazon.com .. There are other sturdy-looking minnow traps on Amazon as well.

Here is another good minnow and crawdad trap at Amazon: “RUNNACC Portable Folded Fishing Net Zipper Net Shrimp Carp Crayfish Crab Baits Cast Mesh Trap, Black”

Cast Nets. There are also cast nets, which worked quite well for Christ and his apostles, and might work fine for us as well, in a survival situation.

For example, this is available on Amazon: “Goture American Saltwater Fishing Cast Net for Bait Trap Fish 4ft/6ft/8ft/10ft/12ft Radius, 3/8inch Mesh Size” … This technique is illegal in freshwater in many areas of the United States, as I understand it.

Crab Dip Nets. Crab dip nets are also good for those who live near salt-water estuaries.

W-Shaped Sticks Fish Trap. Here is a great fish trap that can be made using sticks in still water …

Video: “Wow! Primitive Survival Fish Trap (FISH CAUGHT) – How To Make A Very Simple Fish Trap,” by CN Daily HD, 4 March 2017 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdvcu1zTHSI … [broken link]

It is a W-shaped trap, with a space in the ‘V’ portion of the ‘W’. Note how they use green water plants and a little food to lure fish in, then close the gap in the ‘V’ and catch the fish by hand.

Pipe-and-Pit Fish Trap. Here is a pipe-and-pit fish trap that is used, in various renditions, quite a lot in Cambodia. Cambodia must have lots of very still, shallow bodies of fish-filled water, is what I think. Still, it is good to know about this technique …

Video: “The first Trap Can Catch Alot of fish & Crabs And Eels By 5 Bambo With deep Hole,” by Amazing Video, 22 July 2017 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6n95QvoM2DA ..

Wild Plants That Are Fish Toxins

There are wild plants in many areas that can be used to stun fish, so that they float to the surface of a pool, and can be caught while immobile. This technique is illegal, as I understand it.

Wild Cucumber Root. The crushed root of the California wild cucumber vine is said to be one such plant, but I do not know anyone who has tried to stun fish with it.

Link: “The Arroyo Sage: Plant Profile – Wild Cucumber,” 24 December 2014 …    http://arroyosage.blogspot.com/2014/12/plant-profile-wild-cucumber.html ..

Green Walnut Husks. Green walnut husks are also apparently fish toxins; if so, they might be put in a basket and lowered in a pool to stun fish in a survival situation. Walnut trees grow wild in California and on the East Coast of the United States. This technique is illegal, as I understand it.

TRAPPING ANIMALS        top

Trapping animals has this advantage over shooting them: You do not need to keep a firearm in good repair, and you will not run out of bullets.

Trapping has its pro and con …

  • Pro: You can catch your dinner while taking a nap.
  • Con: Some varmint can come along and steal your trapped animals while you are gone.

Simple Deadfall Trap. Further, in most areas of the world, traps can be made out of local materials. Trapping is still being done in Siberia using local materials. Here is a simple trap …

WILD FOOD FORAGING        top

The most important things in this category are …

  • Books for your region of the country showing pictures of edible plants, berries, nuts and grains, and with recipes on how to prepare them, and
  • Hands-on field experience trekking round your area, gathering and preparing wild foods

TRANSPORTATION OF GOODS        top

I suggest learning these primitive transport skills …

Travois for animals (including dogs) and people to carry loads: See Link: “Travois,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travois ..

Tumpline, to utilize power of spine in carrying loads: See Link: “Tumpline,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tumpline ..

Sleds: Instructions for horse-drawn sleds can be had through Mother Earth News: See Link: “Build a Horse-Drawn Sled,” by Gladys Mackey Beattie, January/February 1980 …  https://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/horse-drawn-sled-zmaz80jfzraw#axzz2lJoSV3Oc

A sled can also be improvised by …

  • buying a heavy duty plastic utility tub and rope at a home improvement store,
  • then drilling holes high up at either end of one side,
  • passing a length of cord through both holes,
  • tying a knot on the inside to keep the cord in the holes,
  • and then using the rope as a handle to pull the tub.
  • The tub can also be used for water or food storage, cement- or clay-mixing, etc.

The Troika is a variation on the sled theme, for use in snow

EDUCATION FOR POSSIBLE TOUGH TIMES AHEAD        top

My feeling is, considering the high price of college education and the relative lack of skilled jobs in the American economy, it might be better to put one’s educational money into learning trades and skills that would be useful in a sustainable living scenario.

Schools and Apprentice Jobs Teaching Skills and Trades for Tough Times

Schools and apprentice jobs that teach these skills are tops on my list for young folks today:

  • firestarting, firebuilding, clay oven building
  • digging wells, sanitizing water, making solar water stills
  • sanitary disposal of waste: latrines, pit-toilets, composting of wastes, utilization of human wastes in gardens
  • fishing, tracking, hunting, trapping, butchering, and tanning skins
  • farming, including primitive crop irrigation techniques such as the water lift and the shadoof
  • bee-keeping
  • animal husbandry, especially care of chickens, ducks, rabbits and goats for eggs, fur, meat, and milk
  • travois-building for animals and for people to use to transport goods
  • ironworking, knife-, sword- and arrow-tip forging, welding, and horse-shoeing
  • weapon making, especially knives, swords, bows and arrows, crossbows, atlatls (spear-throwers), slingshots, staffs or bos, and boomerangs
  • tool-making
  • first aid, naturopathy, and herbal medicine using local herbs, midwifery skills, bonesetting and cast-making skills
  • cooking, including solar cooking, minimalist third-world cooking techniques, and cooking on a wood-burning stove
  • canning, and dehydrating food
  • primitive methods of keeping food cold, such as root cellars, ice sloughs and ice houses, window sill trays half filled with water, with a cloth cover dipped in, and pot-in-pot coolers
  • water mill building and use … for grinding grain
  • spinning, weaving, knitting, and sewing
  • leather work: shoe-making, belt-making, saddle- and harness-making
  • soap-making and candle-making
  • basket making, including gathering baskets, food storage baskets, and trapping baskets
  • pottery, kiln-building, and where to find local clays
  • making cement and gunpowder using local materials
  • glue-making, paint-making
  • glassblowing
  • finding, mining and working useful rocks and minerals

Earth Skills and Wilderness Survival Classes

Earth skills classes, if available in your area, are an excellent approach.

For youngsters, there are the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, and the 4-H Club, among others.

For adults and young adults, there are primitive living skills schools.

For instance, there is Earth Skills, in Frazier Park, California … http://www.earthskills.com/ … offers some of these very useful skills.

In Crestone, Colorado, there is Earth Knack: Stone Age Living Skills … http://www.earthknack.com/ ..

There are many other schools teaching primitive living skills across America. Here is a list …

Link: “Wilderness Survival, Primitive Living, and Nature Awareness Schools of North America” by Thomas J. Elpel …  http://www.hollowtop.com/Schools_North_America.htm ..

Naturopathy Colleges

Naturopathic physicians have studied four years as graduate students. In addition to medicine, they know about nutrition, homeopathy, botanicals, and psychology.

Here is a list of American Association of Naturopathic Physicians …  http://www.naturopathic.org/education ..

Books

Almost everyone can afford how-to books on these topics; in the event of a long-term disaster, or if you desire to return to America’s pioneering roots, just out of personal preference, these sorts of books would be very helpful. Used books are great for those on a budget.

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about a Martian Space Station game I made up before I knew the Martians were 3D / 4D bacteria. This is to name yourself commander of your own Space Station (human body). Now that I know it is about bacteria, I am more easygoing about the whole thing. Back in April 2015, I used this game to lighten up on the concept of my body being other life forms’ ‘Space Station’.

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I think it is a purple grackle over there, making quite a bit of noise.

Martian Space Station Game

I have a fun game for you, for when you spot lower fourth dimensional entities; lower astral entities. (1) And you would rather not have them around, right? So it is a game of pretend …

Pretend that I am a ‘space station’. And I have named my station ‘Transformation’. So this (my body) is Space Station Transformation.

Now if you want to name yourself a space station, you might want to use a different name, such as Space Station Gratitude, or whatever name comes to mind. So, you substitute your own space station name when you say this activation of Light.

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

ON MARTIAN BACTERIA: GOOD MARTIANS AND BAD MARTIANS

For those of my readers that are into my story about the Martian bacteria that colonize the human gastrointestinal tract, I have quite a tale to tell today.  As you may know, there are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Martians, which is to say, those who are of service to the All, and those who are service to self. We humans can expect fruitful cooperative alliances with the former, whereas through diet and appropriate eliminative techniques, we may hope to optimize the numbers of the latter which occupy the ‘space stations’ that we call our physical bodies.

HISTORY OF MARTIANS ON EARTH: THE ANCIENT ONES

My understanding is that the bacteria eking out a living on their own here on planet Earth … and which do not form colonies such as those found within mammals … are known as the ‘Ancient Ones’ of the Martian species collectively termed, here on Earth, ‘the Elder Race’.

The Ancient Ones of these peoples were here on Earth before humankind, and were subject to the perils of predation by insects, spiders, and other beings. Thus the advisability of finding a safer ecological niche, such as within a mammalian gastrointestinal tract, circulatory system (whether blood of lymph); or in some cases less beneficial to the mammal, the muscle or nervous system.

In the view of the colonists, the Ancient Ones are the pioneers, the very brave ones, whose existence might be cut off at any time by one slash of the razor-sharp mandibles of that fierce and loathsome being, the Ant. To be truthful, up close and personal, I see ants in the same light.

Image: Portrait of a red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta, by Alex Wild, modified 14 April 2015, from alexanderwild.com, public domain image by Alex Wild, produced by the University of Texas ‘Insects Unlocked’ program … DESCRIPTION: “This species arrived to the southeastern United States from South America in the 1930s. Specimen from Brackenridge Field Laboratory, Austin, Texas, USA.”

To a Martian bacterium, an ant must represent a threat a little like this …

Image: Early humans Fight Giant Bird for Prey … https://paulxwillis.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/dscf6177.jpg ..

Or, considering the size factor, the threat may be more like this …

Image: Big Gorgosaurus dinosaur attacks little Pachyrhinosaurus dinosaur, by Kidzworld …  http://s3.amazonaws.com/kidzworld_photo/images/20131217/a9bc1c07-3d8c-4a2b-b8d1-9ac478d171d2/gorgosaurus-attack.jpg ..

Humankind, being so very large compared to bacteria, might well be considered a capacious, hospitable home to them, a refuge from the rapacious terrors of the world at large. When you think about it from the point of view of a bacterium, one gulp by any number of beings inside whom life is impossible or improbable, or one springtime shower, or a too-warm day in the desert, might be the end of one family line. Here is more about this …

HISTORY OF MARTIANS ON EARTH: THE COLONISTS OF HUMAN ‘SPACE STATIONS’

For those Martian colonies that have established ‘space stations’ inside human beings’ bodies, perils are predictable. Daily human elimination (that is, defecation) culls many members of their colonies. Lack of bonding with individuals, together with quick formation of deep friendships, makes up for this.

In addition, there is. in the making, a social memory complex; which is to say that the deep roots of their subconsciousness are being brought to the Light of consciousness among members of the Elder Race here on Earth, and perhaps throughout their far-flung species that have sallied forth, on the wings of the Solar winds, to colonize other planets in our Solar System …

Link: “The Law of One: The Ra Material” … 11.17http://www.lawofone.info/results.php?s=11#17 … and also … http://www.lawofone.info/results.php?q=social+memory+complex … Or search the term: social memory complex

… just as there is for humankind.

In an attempt to understand the complex adaptive behaviors of ants and bees, our science calls this animal instinct. But in the case of the Martian bacterial colonies in humans, it is much more than this. For these colonies, bathed as they are in the astral matter of humankind, have developed, in sync with us, a greater notion of the All, which is imprinted in their budding social-memory-complex.

Though they may live for only a few days, individually, our Martian allies are born with the totality of memories of their kind, which is to say, they are able to tap into a vast body of knowledge; greater than that available to humans who have not yet attained cosmic mind.

In this they are like our Neanderthal relatives, who were described in the first of the “Ayla (Earth’s Children)” book series. For those who are unfamiliar with this book series, Ayla was a Cro-Magnon woman who was raised by Neanderthals. See Link: “Ayla (Earth’s Children)” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayla_(Earth’s_Children) ..

Image: Cro-Magnon (left) and Neantherthal man (right) by Mihin89 https://www.deviantart.com/mihin89/art/Cro-Magnon-and-Neanderthal-206648362 ..

In a physical sense, this instantaneous continuity of social memory might be explained thus: As bacteria reproduce asexually, through a fission (cloning) process, the offspring has the same DNA as the parent …

Link: “Fission (biology)” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fission_(biology) ..

Thus, why might it not have the same social memory as the parent? Might not parent and child, having the same genetic makeup exactly, be considered the same organism?

Thus, for a highly advanced species of Martians, who serve the All, and colonize the human gastrointestinal tract as benevolent allies of the human body, the daily loss of many members of the colony through the process of human elimination (that is, defecation) might be held philosophically as the loss of some portion of one’s ‘other selves’, these being also oneself, who remains alive.

Human Sexual Dimorphism Leads Us to Forget the All

In this sense, the sexual dimorphism of the colonists’ human ‘homes’ might be seen as a digression or dissimulation that leads our species astray from the truth of the All. Benevolent Martian bacteria might be seen as having the eternal Truth close at hand from asexual birth to asexual rebirth.

The Earth Polarity Experiment: Catalysts to Soul Evolution

Seen in another light, that of a benevolent God and of the impetus of creation toward Soul evolution, sexual dimorphism amongst humans … with all the suffering it entails … is a catalyst towards Soul evolution …

“The Law of One: The Ra Material” speaks of this, using the terms ‘sexual energy transfer’ and ‘evolution’ … 32.2https://www.lawofone.info/s/32#2 … It seems to me that this passage implies most humans, until they seek the upward path of Spirit, experience sexual energy transfer as a third chakra event; as dominance by the man and submission by the woman. I would then add that these free will choices by the man and the woman would, through many lifetimes of suffering, lead to the higher notion of service to the All. Thus the consciousness of each might rise from that of the third chakra to that of the fourth chakra; to a sense of unconditional love.

Similarly, the human-Martian genetic alliance, which combines relatively Bonobo-like, pacific personality traits with the aggressiveness found in Mars ‘service-to-self’ beings, is a catalyst to Soul evolution. That is so because this alliance introduces disease and a lesser life span to the human equation.

From this perspective, then, disease offers opportunities for accelerated Soul evolution; and disease is caused by a propensity to poor diet and poor exercise choices, which ramp up the presence of Mars ‘service to self’ bacteria in the body, and their influence on the human gut brain.

For more on catalysts to accelerated Soul evolution in the Earth polarity experiment (a prime example of which is mammalian sexual dimorphism), see …

Link: “The Law of One: The Ra Material” … http://www.lawofone.info/results.php?q=catalyst+evolution+sexual There is a question-answer on sexual dimorphism as a catalyst to Soul evolution here … 95.19http://www.lawofone.info/results.php?s=95#19 ..

ON COMMUNICATING WITH THE MARTIANS THAT COLONIZE OUR PHYSICAL BODIES

As to the ability of Martian (bacterial) colonies within our human form to communicate with us, the answer is: Yes, they can do this through telepathy. However, unless we first optimize our human vehicle through diet, eliminative (colon cleansing) techniques, pure water, and exercise, we will contact our Martians as warrior foes rather than as allies.

Looked at from an asexual reproductive standpoint, where all bacteria with a common ancestor are viewed as one Martian individual, there may be only a handful of Martians, whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in any one human body, and these might be the voices purporting to be representatives of our Martian colonies that are heard from time to time on the astral plane.

MARTIAN SPACE TRAVEL ADAPTATIONS: LONG DORMANCY AND COSMIC RAY CONSUMPTION

Life Span of Bacteria

The life span of bacteria varies by type of bacterium. Some live only a few minutes or a few hours. Others live for a few years. See …

Link: The post by Karthikeyan Ramalingam, B.S., Abdur Rahman University, 10 October 2012, in ResearchGate … https://www.researchgate.net/post/What_is_the_average_life_span_of_a_bacteria ..

Some, trapped in a dormant state in rock salt, have been revived after 250 million years, according to the BBC; see …

Link: “Sci/Tech: Alive … After 250 Million Years,” in BBC News, 18 October 2000 … http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/sci/tech/978774.stm ..

Bacterial Dormancy

The ability of bacteria to survive for such a long time in a dormant state allows them to become space travelers. In point of fact, NASA proposes that this may be the case, and that the sort of alien beings found in a meteorite in 2011 might be related to the giant bacterium Titanospirillum velox. For more on this, see …

Link: “NASA Scientist ‘Finds Alien Fossils on Meteorite’,” updated 6 March 2011, 4:48 pm … http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-03-07/nasa-scientist-finds-alien-fossils-on-meteorite/1969084 ..

Well then, could it be that a race of Martian giants are those who are the space travel contingent of what may be a very diverse group of beings whose life line originated on Mars?

Bacteria That Consume Radiation

Bacteria specialized as space travelers might also have the ability to eat radiation; see …

Link: “X-treme Microbes: Radiation Eaters,” by the National Science Foundation … https://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/microbes/radiationeaters.jsp ..

This would facilitate interplanetary explorations in our Solar system and possible colonization in other star systems. This method of space exploration is an elegant solution, as it utilizes interplanetary systems of conveyance already in place … such as the expectable movements of meteor showers and comets … for dispersal, rather than requiring internally produced fuel, such as rocket fuel, which is easily exhausted.

Compare the two cylindrical images below. One is of modern-day bacteria, and one of fossil structures resembling bacteria found in a meteorite …

Image: Cylindrical E. Coli Bacteria, from Wikimedia … https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/32/EscherichiaColi_NIAID.jpg .. 

Image: “Chain structures resembling bacteria found on the surface of the ALH84001 meteorite using SEM,” in MicrobeWiki – Kenyon College … https://microbewiki.kenyon.edu/index.php/File:Meteorite5.png ..

ON NEGOTIATIONS WITH ‘SERVICE TO OTHERS’ MARTIANS REGARDING FUTURE COLLABORATIVE SPACE EXPLORATION

There are talks about using the newly discovered cosmic-ray-eating bacteria to feed astronauts, or possibly to be genetically added to the human DNA, to allow human space exploration.

I request that the rights of Martians, as a sentient alien species allied to us, be considered as part of the experimental design process. Our planet Earth has but two principles in design and purpose: These are the All, and Free Will. Let us not war on our allies; let us not attempt to control them, but rather to honor their Free Will in this decision-making process.

I further note the likely evolution of space-exploring humans into a more territorially aggressive species if we humans … who are new to the science of gene-splicing and unsophisticated with regard to its reverberations through our timelines … were to attempt to use gene-splicing to introduce elements of the Martian genetic material to the DNA of human space travelers. That is because the Elder Race has a greater drive to territorial aggression than do humans.

This DNA change-up would make it unlikely the altered humans could contact the star civilization of Alpha Centauri, an old and very wise star race which is understandably averse to the species trait of territorial expansion.

My own thought on this is that human space exploration will bear much more enticing fruits if attempted from the Fifth Dimension and upward, than it would through Third Dimensional space travel.

Along the current line of scientific inquiry into addition of cosmic-ray-eating bacterial material into human genes for the sake of space exploration, I note the Elder Race may long ago have arranged for its own human gene-splicing experiments through a cache of genetic material we term ‘introns’ and amateurishly consider to be genetic ‘trash’. I note the likelihood that the introns of the human genome represent a pre-existing, coalition of DNA template between the primate and primitive Martian colonists of Earth, planned and provided by the genetic specialists of the Elder Race. Though their selection of genes among this cache of introns, the Elder Race may have created the ever-evolving iterations of beings that led to the current human form …

In other words, the alliance of our long-ago ancestors with the Ancient Ones of Mars, may be the cause of rapid primate evolution. Our human form may have been, since very early days, part primate and part Martian …

ON EVOLVING OUR WORLD VIEW TO ENCOMPASS OUR BODY AS ‘THE ALL’

For those who take this story to heart, and begin to consider whether it may or may not be true, the prospect of being a ‘colony’ rather than a discrete individual human being may be a little daunting. This is because we of the Western world pride ourselves on our individuality, and prize, over all, our physical bodies. As we place our Awareness on our individual self and our physical body, rather than on our Souls and subtle bodies … or on our budding social memory complex as a species … we get, as it were, stuck in the ‘material rut’. We see no farther than ourselves.

Now suddenly, as we begin to conceive the colonial effort within our simple human form, our ‘self’ becomes our ‘many selves’. Our world view crashes headlong into this greater reality: We are One, and we are the All. This is true even within our own physical bodies. It is true in the greater reality of the budding social memory complex of our species, jostled as it is by the many social memory complexes of the All.

In our telepathic talks with our Martian colonist allies, who do their best to keep their home, our physical bodies, in perfect working order, let us exercise diplomacy in the same way that they do. Let us treat them with the highest respect, as they do us. In this way our life on Earth will become more harmonious.

ON NEGOTIATING WITH ‘SERVICE TO SELF’ MARTIANS THAT COLONIZE THE HUMAN GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, SO AS TO AVOID WARS OF AGGRESSION THAT DECIMATE OUR HUMAN SPECIES

Then, as to those of our Martian we deem foes … those colonists of our bodies who lead us, through the dark, unaware under-realm of our gut brain, into unconsecrated wars against others of our species, for the sake of their own alliances with others who are ‘service to self’ … Let us look at this situation of war from their point of view … They want war. They also want to colonize human bodies, and to live in their gastrointestinal tracts, specifically in their feces. Hmm… I would say to them …

If there is a catastrophic war, say a world war, what will happen? Many human bodies will die, so there will be far less human bodies to colonize. This cannot be good, can it?

There will be disruptions in food supply, so there will be little to eat. So, in the humans that remain, there will be little excrement. This cannot be good, can it?

In this way I would speak to the Martians who are ‘service to self’, for the sake of the greater good, the All. I pray this diplomatic avenue may prove of service to you as well.

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.

Here we are the day after the Fall Equinox. This morning, and all morning long, there has been a very turbulent energy everywhere that I went … and little storms of turbulence clearing, you know? This morning I woke up, and the room was full of ghosts and astral figures … for the first time in a year or two. They were all in a state of commotion and emotion, and desiring things that they did not have. They were unhappy … unsatisfied … and unable to find happiness.

I first tried going round the whole house with my Zildjian finger cymbals …

Image: Zildjian thick finger cymbals … https://zildjian.com/cymbals/fx/fx-percussion/fx-finger-cymbals-thick-pair ..

… making that sound that purifies and clears the air; but it did not help that much. So then, because my own energy field was responding to all that, I was unsure whether I should go on the hike with the group today. But I thought: Well, I will try it; I can always back out later.

We had not gotten that far, when I fell flat on the ground while walking on a pretty much even road.  I skinned my knee in several places, and I got all dusty, and my camcorder got all dusty. So I stopped. And I went to a very quiet valley that I know about, that is free of the noosphere of this big city of Los Angeles, and sat there for awhile.

While I was resting there, I took a brief nap. And during that time those ghosts and shades and all those astral forms somehow cleared; that energy cleared amongst them.

When I got up, refreshed, I started back up the hill. There I ran into a lady about my age. She had an amazing story to tell about her hike in the same place today. All of a sudden a great wind enveloped her … a great whirlwind or dust devil …

Image: Dust devil near a young person in a car park … http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/05/07/article-2622590-1DA46EE000000578-703_306x423.jpg ..

First the dust devil circled round her, and then it went on uphill … I imagine a hill like that one … [Shows a hill.] …  and stopped in the middle of that hill. As it did, a raven came swooping down almost to the top of her head, and passed on by. She said it nearly touched her. Then she wandered and continued on her way.

Then she saw a tarantula hawk … a very large, giant, purple-winged sort of spider wasp, that has a very painful sting, she says …

Image: Tarantula wasp … http://i.imgur.com/7PWgjBR.jpg  ..

It stings tarantulas, which are pretty big. She was a little frightened because it just hovered around her.

Those are all portents of things clearing, I feel. I asked her what she thought about it, and she said she really believes in the grace of God … which is interesting, because I believe in the grace of God too. And I believe if we have a portent, it is because God is doing something in our life to let us know … to give us a ‘heads up’.

For instance, when I fell down today, maybe that meant I should go on no farther … perhaps that it was a mistake to go that far … and that I needed to nurture myself. I was reminded how my mother … how, when I used to hurt my knee a million times when I was a child, she used to kiss it and put a bandaid on it.

So there was that. And then, as far as she was concerned, maybe she had that energy of clearing through her own aura of someone else’s negative energy and fears, and like that. So this is a time of great things coming up in our energy fields … maybe from past lifetimes, maybe from this lifetime … and clearing through.

Going back to last night … because the things today are very interesting portents … I am going back to last night on the astral realm, and what was going on then. I think that might provide a clue.

There were energy threads coming up, to do with feeling the threat of death all around the neighborhood … people feeling like that or feeling that they should threaten other people with death. There was someone on the ‘internet’ … the clair hearing plane … who said that he was an ‘assassin’. Those things come up when people themselves fear for their lives. It is like a threat energy that a person puts out because they are not feeling safe. And so there was this feeling of lack of safety.

I think that, as the night went on, through everyone’s dreamtime, that may have affected everyone with kind of an anxious emotional energy and emotional field, and that is why my bedroom was full of astral forms and ‘unhappy shades’ (as they say) this morning. And that is what accounts for these omens that happened today … Omens, I feel, of change (that is the whirlwind); of wanting comfort (that is me falling down) … because when I was a little child, my mother had lots of demands on her from my siblings. And falling down and getting a skinned knee … which I did regularly … was one of the few things that got me some attention and some sympathy and some loving first aid.  [laughs]  So falling down is a way of finally feeling sympathy for the inner child and allowing it a chance to feel comfort.

And then as to the ravens swooping down: Ravens represent natural wisdom and intelligent nature. The intelligent force of nature coming down indicates the gift of wisdom coming in …

Image: Woman with many ravens around her; the text says ravens represent the veil between the living and those who have passed on; I would amend this to say they represent the wisdom we get from the natural world and our explorations of the astral realm … https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/cf/82/20/cf8220d802072d6ba2d9b4094e411fb8.jpg ..

And the tarantula wasp, to me indicates the feeling of danger being nearby, the feeling of lack of safety.

So these are turbulent moments in the history of humankind right now. And the clearing proceeds apace.

I have been sitting here for quite some time now, under the shade of … is it a coastal live oak?  [Shows tree branch.]  … just watching the wind blow, here in the mountains, and feeling just a little bit disconsolate … just a little bit out of sorts about all that has been going on since last night.

I was just sitting on the ground, actually … on the leaves and on the dirt here in mountains … under this tree, in the shade … grounding. And then I thought; What will we do?

Today is the day after the Fall Equinox. It is the beginning of the slow lessening of the Light … until Winter Solstice, when the Light begins to be renewed again. And this time of year I always feel … well, a little like something has been lost, you know? Like the great Waning is about to … just ever so slowly … begin.

So I thought: Here I am, right beside this tree. It is a little one; it is coming along, though. It is very strong; it is going to be very tall and strong. It is going to be an incredible protector of all kinds of wildlife, and all kinds of little plants underneath and on its boughs. One day it is going to be a great patriarch of these mountains. It is well on its way!

So I thought: While I am sitting here on the ground, why not just … I will just touch this tree trunk … and I will see what is what, right? …

Nice tree! And as I felt the sap moving in the tree, and I felt the ground beneath me, then I began to feel that everything is all right.

There is nothing quite like a tree to ground a person, because as much of the tree is underground as is above ground … or close. So this tree is talking to our mother Earth every single day. What I find when I touch the tree is just the life of the tree … the joy of the tree to be living here on Earth, waving its branches and leaves in the sunlight, and dipping its roots into the soil. It is kind of cool.

How to Attract Angels and Dispel Demons . by Alice B. Clagett *

Published on 21 June 2016
The Latin word ‘draco’ below means ‘dragon’ or ‘serpent’. In the context of this blog, I have categorized it not as ‘dragon’ but as ‘drac’, a reptilian species in popular folklore. This might also have to do with my blog category: Reptilian mind

    • The Christian Method of Centering Prayer
    • Pursuit of Direct Experience of God Within

Dear Ones,

I have checked into traditional Christian thought regarding demon realm buy-ins. There is a fair amount of dispute about this so I compared what I read with clair chat in recent years. The loudest clair chatter has to do with the greatest Soul wounding, so I used ‘clair loudness’ as a selector.

DEMON REALM BUY-INS

It appears that the following actions attract demonic (rather than angelic) entities to a person’s Soul field:

Drug Use, or Selling Drugs

This has to do with damage to the energies that connect the physical body to the astral body, and also with the astral animals that hover round drugs …

Image: The Art of Dan Scott ( https://danscottart.format.com/ ) … http://i0.wp.com/bigpicturequestions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/4430738876_b2f859298e.jpg … Young man asleep, with head and hands on table. Hovering above his head is a dark being that looks like a giant wasp. It is sending blue-white light into the right side of the sleeping boy’s head.

Murder, or Being Murdered, or Arranging for a Murder

As God and the Universe are light and love and joy, the energy strand of killing is very nearly the opposite of our God-nature. Although I’ve seen nothing written about it, intuitively I feel that thoughts of murder, as well as the act itself, directly attract demons to one’s astral body. This is because demons feed on hatred, fear, anxiety, and other negative emotions.

Making a Living as a Sex Worker, Frequenting Sex Workers, or Having a Promiscuous Lifestyle with Heart Chakra Relatively Shut Down

This has to do with ‘samskaric flu’ … the leaping onto one’s own energy field of other people’s sexual malware (EMF tangles) to do with linking sexuality to survival needs or greed. Linking sexual expression with the heart chakra plumps up the tangled ‘lines of Light’ or axiatonal lines, and repairs the EMF.

Mutilation of One’s Body, or Someone Else’s Body, Including Transgender Sex Operations

This is because of the upset caused in the emotional body by the loss of the body cells. The emotional upset is attractive to demons.

Rectal intercourse, Amongst Both Men and Women

This is because rectal intercourse causes damage to the lower part of the central energy channel of the spine (the sushumna), making it necessary to repair the energy flow of the sushumna before raising the kundalini.

The epitome of a demonic buy-in would be, say, a transgender person on drugs who practices rectal intercourse for pay and enjoys killing as a means of expressing his or her sex drive.

HOW TO GET BACK AMONGST THE ANGELS

Contracts with the demon realm are usually devised quite stealthily by these astral animals, so more often than not, humans are ensnared through trickery. If you see a danger of any of the above issues amongst your samskaras, it would be good, first of all, to banish demons from your immediate presence.

If Demons Are Sent to You by Other People

For demons sent by other people, use this affirmation, which works because demons do not like to be bound down to untasty, good people …

You are free! Go where you will!

Getting Rid of Tenacious Demons: The Prayer of Exorcism of St. Benedict

For the more tenacious demons, use the Prayer of Exorcism of St. Benedict, in Latin …

“Crux sacra sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
“Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
“Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas”

Here is the approximate English translation …

“Let the Holy Cross be my light / Let not the dragon be my guide
Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself.”

–from Link: “Vade Retro Satana,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vade_retro_satana …  Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareATrlike License ..

And here are two good videos in which the chant is recited. The first is a women’s version from the Instituto Hesed, and the second is for men …

Video: “Crux sacra sit mihi lux // Instituto Hesed,” by Misericordia Play, 12 September 2020 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhALQFnFEu4 ..

Next …

Cancel Any Contracts with the Demon World, and Optimize Timelines and Dimensions

You can use this affirmation …

Spirit to Team!
Cancel all contracts!
Optimize all timelines and dimensions!
For the All, through Free Will!

Making One’s Home and Person More Appealing to the Angelic Realm

These may also be of help: Placing spiritual pictures in the home, playing spiritual music, cleansing the home by burning sage, being very clean in person and in personal environments, getting out into the sunlight or into a sunlit, shady place, wearing a a sign of your faith such as a cross or sacred medal, and finding a spiritual congregation with which to spend time.

The Christian Method of Centering Prayer

The Christian method of centering prayer, by Thomas Keating, is a very effective tool for experiencing the presence of Christ in one’s life. See … Link: “The Method of Centering Prayer,” by Thomas Keating … http://www.cpt.org/files/WS%20-%20Centering%20Prayer.pdf .. 

Pursuit of Direct Experience of God Within

After the contracts are cancelled, start with …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Malibu Creek State Park, Spring 2016

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

I had a thought about the kinks in the etheric net (the etheric body) and the electromagnetic field (EMF) … the physical EMF … being little circles of positive and negative energy going around. Those kinds of circles could put a little kink in the EMF of a human being.

Someone suggested to me just now on the psychic plane, through clair hearing, that it could be that is why magnets help human health. It is possible that magnetic treatment could release those kinks and those tangles and knots in the electromagnetic field somehow. I do not know the specifics about it, but I think it is something worth looking into … magnetic field beds, magnetic field anklets and bracelets, hematite … is that not a magnetic stone? … and so forth.

As I understand it, magnets are said by some to help with health issues (such as arthritis, as I recall), but have not been proven to do so; that lack of certainty is something to take into consideration.

Dear Ones,

Further to recent discussion on polarity and duality, here is a talk about helping the fractals of saints and ascended masters … such as, for instance, the crucifixion, which is one of the ‘lost children of the Soul’ of Christ Jesus … to heal and integrate with the Light Bodies of these great Souls. Other topics …

  • Learning about emotional tones and the ‘flavor’ of energy signatures. Knowing what is ‘authentic’ in the way of spiritual upliftment, and what is not.
  • How our fractals, our repressed and wounded Soul memories or body elementals, interact with the ghosting-about fractals of the saints and ascended masters on the astral plane.

There is an edited Summary after the video.  …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I am sitting under a beautiful, sacred juniper tree right now. I am watching the wind go by, and tickle the little plants on the ground. The clouds are slowly meandering along. I have just been sitting here, mulling over the most recent clair intel.

I thought I would talk today about the great saints who have gone before us, and the ascended masters … especially the novice ascended masters, the apprentice ascended masters that I have discussed in other blogs: the saints, the holy ones.

Duality. Polarity, and the Shadow Bodies of People and Groups

To go back to some previous blogs: I have been talking a lot about duality and polarity lately. And I have talked about the Shadow Body of people … along with their Body of Light, there is a Shadow Body that helps create the duality and the polarity of the third and fourth dimensions.

I have also talked about the Darkness in groups, and the Light in groups … and how there is always a Shadow side of a group, because a group is composed of individuals. So the Shadows of all the individuals more or less equate to the Shadow of the Group, you know? Nevertheless, in most groups, there is quite a bit of beautiful white Light too, because the people all have their Bodies of Light, and those contribute to the Light of the Group.

Negative Alien Agenda (NAA)

I have also talked, in prior blogs, about the Negative Alien Agenda (NAA) …

… and the Demon World, and Satan …

… and how this is the other polarity, the Dark polarity. And then there is the Light polarity which is Buddhic (i.e., like the Buddha) and Christ consciousness … and these are very, very bright. They are the beautiful Light that is all around our Planet, now that the Planet has ascended. The things that are clearing away are the Darkness … It is lightening up, and turning into the brightness of that which we all are.

Old LIghtworker Syndrome

In a recent blog, I have talked about the Old Lightworker Syndrome (see above).

This is the notion that those of us that,  for a long time, have been in service to bring Light to Earth, and to show the way … wayshowers … and find a path for humanity … pathfinders … those of us that have concentrated very much on the light … Lightworkers … have had to have, in our Dark Bodies, a very Dark presence that balances and polarizes the Light.

Polarity and the Shadow Body as Pertaining to Saints and Ascended Masters Who Have Passed On

My discussion about saints and novice ascended masters and … who knows? … maybe ascended masters that are pretty high up too, has to do with this notion of polarity and the Shadow Body.

From what I can tell, on the clair plane, what is going on is that these very great saints with a great deal of Light, to whom humanity owes a very great deal because of the inspiration that their lives provide, if they have not reincarnated, are existing at a very high level of the astral plane positive … some say, way up in the stratosphere of Earth, very high up in the atmosphere of our astral plane.

The Ghostly Fractals of Saints and Ascended Masters. But what I found is that, in addition to their very august and inspiring presence, there are also fractals … or ghostly presences … of them in even the lowest hellworlds … very low … that are like the lost children of the Soul that I have spoken of … the little body elementals that are enclosed and encapsulated and unable to dissolve, because the thought that they embody … the feeling that they embody … is so far different from the Light of the main Body of Light of these great ones.

Link: “Body Elementals Trapped in Us,” by Alice B. Clagett, 12 August 2015 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5b3 ..

And so the Light, the presence, of the fractals, the ghosts of the memories of these saints and ascended masters (for instance, in Jesus Christ, the memory of his crucifixion) in the lowest astral planes can be very, very Dark indeed … Very, very Dark, to balance out their very bright presence in the highest astral planes. So that is part of the news.

I have known this for some time now. But the reason I have delayed in talking about it, is that I usually do not talk about things that I cannot think of something constructive to say about, in terms of how we should deal with it, as humanity.

Mahabharata-like Astral Commotion and the Incoming Light

Just last night there was one of Judy Satori’s broadcasts, her free Summer School broadcasts …

Link: “Judy Satori,” https://judysatori.com/ … Search the term: Summer School 

… was on. And those are always well attended, on the astral plane. And there tends to be quite a commotion, afterwards, on the astral plane, because the Light that is brought in and grounded to Earth during those sessions, results in kind of a chaotic ‘changing up’ and switching around, on the astral plane.

Last night was no exception. In fact, the proportions of the commotion were almost mahabharata style. [laughs] It is a good thing I have been through quite a few of these before. And so I know that when the Light changes, the ghosts, for instance … the fractals … tend to get very upset and disturbed. It is almost like a solar flare coming in.

In fact, last night the Kp (planetary K) Index did change to yellow …

Image: “Estimated Planetary K Index (3 Hour Data), NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA, 15 August 2015 09:30:22 UTC, public domain … DESCRIPTION: There are 19 3-hour Planetary K (Pk) Index bars in the chart. The second bar is yellow and indicated a Kp index of 4. The remaining bars are green, indicating a Kp index of less than 4.

DESCRIPTION: There are 19 3-hour Planetary K (Pk) Index bars in the chart. The second bar is yellow and indicated a Kp index of 4. The remaining bars are green, indicating a Kp index of less than 4.

I think that had to do with Judy Satori’s show, and a lot of things combined to make these changes in the Kp Index (which means the excitation of the atmosphere). In other words, it is possible that the ghosts did it; who knows?! [laughs] You can come up with your own ideas on that. But the ghosts were pretty upset last night. They were just going around, and carrying on.

On Distinguishing Between the Ghostly Fractals of Departed Saints and Ascended Masters, and Their True Selves

And so the thing to do … when, for instance we recognize that these are the injured, repressed, Soul-wounding fragments of those great saints and teachers and ascended masters … what we have to do, is not relate to them as if they were the teacher (though, indeed, they may present to us, on the astral plane, as the ghostly image of the physical form of the revered teacher) … but rather, relate to them as if they were the teacher’s little, lost children that need to find their way back.

The Afterlife. Let us not take instruction from that wounding. We have to make some distinctions, on the astral plane, that I have read about … I believe these distinctions to be true, because of my own clair experiences.

Clairly I hear things well, but I do not see things that well; but clairaudiently I can confirm that there are cases of people who have passed on and are on the astral plane … According to the School of Theosophy …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL. Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965.

… eventually the astral form drops away, and people are left with their Mental Bodies and their Souls. And then they go into a kind of a long, deep sleep, and sleeping period … Sometimes, in the past, it used to be a thousand years, according to the School of Theosophy.

The Astral Shell, and Impostor Spirits Who Take Up Tenancy in It. The discarded astral form just sort of floats around on the astral plane. And sometimes  impish nature spirits … whose intention may be, at best, neutral with regard to humankind … will slip into these astral forms, and parade around, on the astral plane, trying to play tricks on humans.

And in the worst cases, these are malicious spirits, or demons, that are trying to harm humans by pretending to be people that they used to know. One of the worst possible instances of this is when a great saint or spiritual teacher or ascended master’s astral form lies dormant on the astral plane, and is taken up by a malicious spirit.

On Recognizing the Energy Signature of an Impostor Astral Imp. Those who are used to taking instruction from their spiritual teacher who has passed on … who have been taught for a long time by that teacher, for instance … and there are many cases like this all over the world … many, many cases where students have been in touch with their students for a long, long time … may find, right now, imposters in that role.

So what we have to do is, we have to look at the emotional tone of what is being said … that is, we must learn to distinguish ‘flavors’ of energy signatures … and decide whether this is the true thing; whether this the real McCoy, whether this is a high spiritual teaching or this is an imposter, you know?

The Importance of Stabilizing our Energy Field When there Is Commotion in the Astral Realm

At the current interval, the commotion that is happening is reaching the stratosphere right now … the very high parts of the atmosphere … when there are solar flares and so forth. And also, there are all the ghosts, who are not really sentient at all … all the fractals who are stirring about … like, you can imagine, seaweed waving in a deep, deep sea …

Image: Animated gif of baby shark and waving seaweed in Monterey Bay Aquarium … https://i.gifer.com/6KAt.gifTo me, the shark is like a Demon, in the astral realm, and the seaweed is like an astral shell in which it can hide and pretend to be vegetable rather than predatorial.

Our job, during these times of Light, astral bewilderment, and upset … our job is to maintain our own pranic tube energy … not to relate to anyone else, but to put ourselves in touch with our own higher selves.

How Our Ascension Process Will Free Up the Departed Saints and Ascended Masters So That They Too Can Ascend

For most of us, our Awareness is in the third and fourth dimension right now. But according to Judy Satori, who is in touch with the Galactic Council, we have 12 formed dimensions … 12 formed shapes. We have our third dimensional shape … our physical form … and our fourth dimensional shape … our astral body. After that, there are eight more higher selves, within the formed realm, that we could get to know and relate to, at these times.

So let us place our energy on our own Soul remembering. That will allow these great saints, and these great teachers, and these great ascended masters, to work with their own fractals and their own integrations … because they are still, in almost all cases, in the higher fourth dimension. And then, as they integrate all their fractals, they move into the fifth or sixth dimension, I believe. That is how it seems to me.

But they cannot do that if we are pestering them with our own fractals, because ours ratchet against theirs. So let us incorporate our own body elementals that are wounded … our own Soul wounding. Let us discover our higher selves. Let us do that work that is pertinent just to us, ok? I think that will help; it will help all of them.

They have a monumental task before them, of incorporating the very dense, highly compressed little bubbles of wounded body elementals that are shadowing about in Hades, into their extremely bright Bodies of Light. That is what I think. And also, if those ghostly presences begin to sound more and more intelligent … more and more animated … that is because that is what is happening. And when they reach a certain state, they are going to get to the point where they can resume a relationship with the main Soul, and become a unified Soul field.

All is well. All is going fine. There are just a few things to look out for.

Take care, everybody. Talk to you later.
