Dear Ones,

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

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

KAMA-MANAS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NEGATIVE EMOTIONS PREVENT CO-CREATION OF FIFTH DIMENSIONAL REALITY

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

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

CHOOSING POSITIVE EMOTIONS SO AS TO NAVIGATE TO THE HIGHER ASTRAL PLANES

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

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

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

ON SURROUNDING THE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS WE EXPERIENCE WITH A FEELING OF PERSONAL SAFETY

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

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

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

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

ON USING PRANAYAM, THE SCIENCE OF BREATH, TO OVERCOME NEGATIVE EMOTIONS

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

Link: “Yogi Bhajan Lecture: The Pranic Body,” by Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) …  https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/ten-bodies/characteristics-ten-bodies/yogi-bhajan-lecture-pranic-body ..

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

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

CONCLUSION

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

The Nature of Desire

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

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

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

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This discussion is background information for an upcoming blog presenting a syncretic theory on the class of beings termed …

  • The Antisocial Personality (ASP) of Psychology;
  • The ‘Elementary’ (aka Black Soul or Dark Soul) of Theosophy;
  • The Reptilians or ‘Hybrids’ of popular folklore, and 
  • The ‘Controllers’ (who are said to have been mind controlling humankind) in the context of the Awakening.

The current blog offers a metaphysical approach to this class of beings. The blog describes the circumstances surrounding the formation of the being known as the  ‘Elementary’ (the ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’) and the rare instance of devolution and loss of the Soul, in the context of the teachings of the School of Theosophy. The quotations below are from “The Seven Principles of Man,” by Annie Besant. (1)

First, some preliminary information on the ‘Quaternary’, that aspect of man which I touch upon in my blogs on the Gut Brain, the Lower Triangle, the Vital Body and the Desire Elemental.

THE QUATERNARY, OR FOUR LOWER PRINCIPLES OF A HUMAN BEING

The Quaternary comprises four lower principles. These are prana, which is the spirit of life; desire (or kama); the etheric double (sometimes termed the Linga Sharira); and the beast in us (the Sthula Sharîra). Annie Besant has a cogent description of the quaternary (1) :

The Quaternary, Without Mind, Is a Lower Animal

“The quaternary, regarded alone, ere it is affected by contact with the mind, is merely a lower animal; it awaits the coming of the mind to make it man. Theosophy teaches that through past ages man was thus slowly built up, stage by stage, principle by principle, until he stood as a quaternary, brooded over but not in contact with the Spirit, waiting for that mind which could alone enable him to progress farther, and to come into conscious union with the Spirit, so fulfilling the very object of his being.” (1)

Kama-Manas: Union of Desire with Lower Mind

“United to the lower part of Manas, the mind, as Kвma-Manas, it becomes the normal human brain intelligence, and that aspect of it will be dealt with presently. Considered by itself, it remains the brute in us, the ‘ape and tiger’ of Tennyson, the force which most avails to keep us bound to earth and to stifle in us all higher longings by the illusions of sense…

Kama-Manas Is the Personality, the ‘Shadow’ of the Soul

Kama-Manas is the personal self of man; we have already seen that the quaternary, as a whole, is the personality, ‘the shadow’, and the lower Manas gives the individualising touch that makes the personality recognise itself as ‘I’.” (1)

HOW MANAS, OR MIND, IS DIVIDED INTO LOWER AND HIGHER DURING AN INCARNATION

“We must now consider Manas during a single incarnation, which will serve as the type of all, and we will start when the Ego has been drawn – by causes set a-going in previous earth-lives – to the family in which is to be born the human being who is to serve as its next tabernacle. (I do not deal here with reincarnation, since that great and most essential doctrine of Theosophy must be expounded separately).” (1)

On the Higher Manas or Mind

“The Thinker, then, awaits the building of the ‘house of life’ which he is to occupy; and now arises a difficulty; himself a spiritual entity living on the mental or third plane upwards, a plane far higher than that of the physical universe, he cannot influence the molecules of gross matter of which his dwelling is built by the direct play upon them of his own most subtle particles.” (1)

On the Lower Manas or Mind

“So, he projects part of his own substance, which clothes itself with astral matter, and then with the help of etheric matter permeates the whole nervous system of the yet unborn child, to form, as the physical apparatus matures, the thinking principle in man.

“This projection from Manas, spoken of as its reflection, its shadow, its ray, and by many another descriptive and allegorical [Page 29] name, is the lower Manas, in contradistinction to the higher ManasManas, during every period of incarnation, being dual.

On the Dual Mind 

“On this, H. P. Blavatsky says: ‘Once imprisoned, or incarnate, their (the Manas) essence becomes dual; that is to say the rays of the eternal divine Mind, considered as individual entities, assume a twofold attribute which is …

–“‘(a) their essential, inherent, characteristic, heaven-aspiring mind (higher Manas), and

–“‘(b) the human quality of thinking, or animal cogitation, rationalised owing to the superiority of the human brain, the Kвma-tending or lower Manas” (Key to Theosophy, p. 184).” (1)

THE PART PLAYED BY LOWER MANAS IN THE EVOLUTION OR DEVOLUTION OF THE SOUL

The Normal Role of Lower Manas Is to Convey Our Incarnational Experience to Higher Manas  

“We must now turn our attention to this lower Manas alone, and see the part which it plays in the human constitution. It is engulfed in the quaternary, and we may regard it as clasping Kama with one hand, while with the other it retains its hold on its father, the higher Manas. Whether it will be dragged down by Kama altogether and be torn away from the triad to which by its nature it belongs, or whether it will triumphantly carry back to its source the purified experiences of its earth-life – that is the life-problem set and solved in each successive incarnation.” (1)

When Lower Manas is Wrenched Free of Higher Manas, an ‘Elementary’ (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’) Is Formed, and the Soul Devolves Until It Is Lost

Thus we see that the Goal of lower manas is to carry back incarnational to higher manas at death. But if the union of kama-manas, which constituted the earthly personality, is overweighted by desire, then lower manas cannot reunite with higher manas at death.

Instead, lower manas will be carried away by kama, and become a separate entity known as an ‘Elementary’ (aka, a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’, as will be discussed later). The trauma experienced by Higher Manas by this separation causes Soul devolution, and the loss of the Soul.

Will One’s Incarnational Actions Cause Soul Evolution or Soul Devolution? 

At death, then lower manas has one of two fates, depending on the way the life was lived.

  • If an average or good life was lived, then the role of Lower Manas is to assist in Soul Evolution by ferrying life experiences to Higher Manas, with which it reunites.
  • If an exceedingly depraved life was lived, then the weight of desire (kama) in kama-manas may cause the link between lower and higher manas (mind) to sever; and Soul Devolution will occur. In that rare instance, the severed kama-manas will form a separate being, an ‘Elementary’ (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’). More on this below.

ON GHOSTS: THE TYPICAL KAMA-MANAS, AFTER DEATH, HAS ONE OF TWO POSSIBLE FATES

An understanding of the normal process of dissolution of kama-manas after death is important to the understanding of the rare instance where an ‘Elementary’  (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’) is formed, and Soul devolution begins (to be discussed next). These passages describe how Kama-Manas, the union of desire with mind, typically fares after we pass on. There are two normal possibilities, and one unusual and highly undesirable possibility. According to Annie Besant (1)  …

“Soon after the death of the physical body, Kama-Manas is set free, and dwells for a while on the astral plane clothed with a body of astral matter….

“Meanwhile, that portion of the impure garment of the lower Manas which remains entangled with Kama gives to the desire-body a somewhat confused consciousness, a broken memory of the events of the life just closed.” (1)

First Possibility: Ghosts of Those Who Had Strong Animal Tendencies 

“If the emotions and passions were strong and the manasic element weak during the period of incarnation, the desire-body will be strongly energised, and will persist in its activity for a considerable length of time after the death of the physical body. It will also show a considerable amount of consciousness, as much of the [Page 43] manasic ray will have been overpowered by the vigorous kamic elements, and will have remained entangled in them.” (1)

Second Possibility: Ghosts of Those Who Led a High-Minded, Pure Life

“If, on the other hand, the earth-life just closed was characterised my mentality and purity rather than by passion, the desire-body, being but poorly energised, will be a pale simulacrum of the person to whom it belonged, and will fade away, disintegrate and perish before any long period has elapsed.” (1)

On the Intelligence of Ghosts Who Have Animalistic Charisma

“The ‘spook’ already mentioned (ante, p. 20-21) will now be understood. It may show very considerable intelligence, if the manasic element be still largely present, and this will be the case with the desire-body of persons of strong animal nature and forcible though coarse intellect. For intelligence working in a very powerful kamic personality will be exceedingly strong and energetic, though not subtle or delicate, and the spook of such a person, still further vitalised by the magnetic currents of persons yet living in the body, may show much intellectual ability of a low type.” (1)

How Such Ghosts Suck Vitality from the Living

“But such a spook is conscienceless, devoid of good impulses, tending towards disintegration, and communications with it can work for evil only, whether we regard them as prolonging its vitality by the currents which it sucks up from the bodies and kamic elements of the living, or as exhausting the vitality of these living persons and polluting them with astral connections of an altogether undesirable kind…” (1)

How Ghosts Live in Limbo

Kama-loka [limbo] (from loka, a place, and so the place for Kama) is a name often used to designate that plane of the astral world to which these spooks belong, and from this ray forth magnetic currents of poisonous character, as from a pest-house float out germs of disease which may take root and grow in the congenial soil of some poorly vitalised physical body.” (1)

THE THIRD POSSIBILITY: FORMATION OF AN ‘ELEMENTARY’ (I.E., A BLACK SOUL OR DARK SOUL); AND DEVOLUTION AND LOSS OF THE SOUL

This possibility occurs when lower manas and higher manas (i.e., the lower mind and the higher mind) are ‘rent asunder’.

  • This rending may occur at death, at the ‘weighing in’ of the Soul. In this case, the being that is formed of the kama (the desire matter of the personality) and the lower manas (the lower mind that created a sense of ‘I’-ness, or egoic identity during the incarnation) is called an ‘Elementary’.
  • Or this rending may occur during incarnation, when a personality ‘acts out’ in such a depraved way that the Soul is deeply and irrevocably injured. 

Annie Besant describes this eloquently:

Snapping of the Silver Thread (or ‘Silver Cord’) That Binds Lower Manas to Higher Manas

“There remains the third possibility for Kama-Manas, to which we must now turn our attention, the fate spoken of earlier as ‘terrible in its consequences, which may befall the kamic principle’. It may break away from its source made one with Kama instead of with the higher Manas. [This separate being forged of desire and lower mind is sometimes called an ‘Elementary’, a ‘Black Soul’, or a ‘Dark Soul’.]

“This is fortunately, a rare event, as rare at one pole of human life as the complete re-union with the higher Manas is rare at the other. But still the possibility remains and must be stated. The personality may be so strongly controlled by Kama that, in the struggle between the kamic and manasic elements, the victory may remain wholly with the former.

“The lower Manas may become so enslaved that its essence may be frayed and thinner and thinner by the constant rub and strain, until at last persistent yielding to the promptings of desire bears its inevitable fruit, and the slender link which unites the higher to [Page 46] the lower Manas, the ‘silver thread that binds it to the Master’ (aka the ‘silver cord’), snaps in two.

“Then, during earth-life, the lower quaternary is wrenched away from the Triad to which it was linked, and the higher nature is severed wholly from the lower. The human being is rent in twain, the brute has broken itself free, and it goes forth unbridled, carrying with it the reflections of that manasic light which should have been its guide through the desert of life.

The ‘Elementary’ (i.e., ‘Black Soul’ or ‘Dark Soul’): Brute Animal in Human Form 

“A more dangerous brute it is than its fellows of the unevolved animal world, just because of these fragments in it of the higher mentality of man. Such a being, human in form but brute in nature, human in appearance but without human truth, or love or justice – such a one may now and then be met with in the haunts of men, putrescent while still living, a thing to shudder at with deepest, if hopeless compassion. What is its fate after the funeral knell has tolled?

“Ultimately, there is the perishing of the personality that has thus broken away from the principles that can alone give it immortality. But a period of persistence lies before it.

Reincarnations of the ‘Elementary’ (i.e., a ‘Black Soul’ or a ‘Dark Soul’)

“The desire-body of such a one is an entity of terrible potency, and it has this unique peculiarity, that it is able under certain rare circumstances to reincarnate in the world of men. It is not a mere ‘spook’ on the way to disintegration; it has retained, entangled in its coils, too much of the manasic element to permit of such natural dissipation in space.

“It is sufficiently an independent entity, lurid instead of radiant, with manasic flame rendered foul instead of purifying, as to be able to take to itself a garment of flesh once more and dwell as man with men. Such a man – if the word [Page 47] may indeed be applied to the mere human shell with brute interior – passes through a period of earth-life the natural foe of all who are still normal in their humanity.

“With no instincts save those of the animal, driven only by passion, never even by emotion, with a cunning that no brute can rival, a deliberate wickedness that plans evil in fashion unknown to the mere frankly natural impulses of the animal world, the reincarnated entity touches ideal vileness. Such soil the page of human history as the monsters of iniquity that startle us now and again into a wondering cry, ‘Is this a human being?’

Devolution and Loss of the Soul Described 

“Sinking lower with each successive incarnation, the evil force gradually wears itself out, and such a personality perishes separated from the source of life. It finally disintegrates, to be worked up into other forms of living things, but as a separate existence, it is lost.

“It is a bead broken off the thread of life, and the immortal Ego that incarnated in that personality has lost the experience of that incarnation, has reaped no harvest from that life-sowing. Its ray has brought nothing back, its lifework for that birth has been a total and complete failure, whereof nothing remains to weave into the fabric of its own eternal Self. [Page 48]”

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

Dear Ones,

Here is more on the nature and importance of desire (which is the function of the astral body) in transitioning through the fourth dimension (i.e., the astral plane) and coming into our true power as human beings in the fifth dimension.

ON PASSING INTO THE ASTRAL PLANE WHILE IN BODY

We human beings here on Earth are passing from the physical and lower mental realms into a deeper understanding of the astral realms. So, what does this mean, and what is the lesson in it for us? Knowing more about the astral body helps us understand our journey at this moment.

ON THE INTERPLAY OF DESIRE AND THOUGHT IN EARTHLY LIFE

The astral body has to do with desire. Another name for desire is the word kâma, which was used in ancient India. As stated by Annie Besant …

Kâma includes the whole group of ‘Feelings,’ and might be described as our passional and emotional nature. All animal needs, such as hunger, thirst, sexual desire, come under it; all passions, such as love (in its lower sense), hatred, envy, jealousy. It is the desire for sentient existence, for experience of material joys,– ‘the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life.’ This Principle is the most material in our nature, it is the one that binds us fast to earthly life ….” –from Link: “The Seven Principles of Man,” by Annie Besant, 1892, pp 18-19 … http://blavatskyarchives.com/theosophypdfs/besant_the_seven_principles_of_man_1892.pdf … This work is in the public domain in the United States

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

“United to the lower part of manas [thought] as Kâma-Manas, it becomes the normal human brain intelligence… Considered by itself, it remains the brute in us, the ‘ape and tiger’ of Tennyson, the force which most avails to keep us bound to earth and to stifle in us all higher longings by the illusions of sense….” –from Link: “The Seven Principles of Man,” by Annie Besant, 1892, p 19 … http://blavatskyarchives.com/theosophypdfs/besant_the_seven_principles_of_man_1892.pdf … This work is in the public domain in the United States

The quality of desire is knit together with the quality of mind in a human being. Typically, in men, you will find a greater ratio of manas or ‘mind’ in this balance. Typically, in women, you will find a greater ratio of kâma, or desire. The two together create the emotional Awareness of human beings, without which we would never accomplish anything in the world.

We could sit and think all day long …

… but without desire, nothing would ever come forth into reality.

HOW NEGATIVE EMOTIONS CAUSE OFF-KILTER CO-CREATION OF REALITY

Now, one definition of the fifth dimension is that we will all realize our innate ability, as Eternal Souls, to become co-creators of reality. In the astral plane that we are engaging in right now and becoming aware of, that quality of co-creation exists.

But because it is only semi-aware … because the Awareness is stifled by negative kilter of the emotions: lust, rage or anger, greed, attachment to the senses, and pride or conceit … kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahankar, as they say in India, these negatively tilted, or skewed renditions of the basic fabric of space and time, which is Love and Light … this slight negative kilter creates a kind of unawareness in us, because true Awareness is of love and Light.

So when we engage in these emotions, we become relatively unaware, and consequently, the reality that we create is an untrue, off-kilter version of what is. This astral world expresses itself, in the Christian ethos, the Christian tradition, as a gradation of Light, from hellworlds, through purgatory, on into the light of heaven.

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

How does it do this? Through the emotions.

HOW POSITIVE EMOTIONS AND BREATH TECHNIQUES ALLOW US TO NAVIGATE THE ASTRAL PLANES

Tom Kenyon (1) wrote, years ago, channeling the Hathors, in the Hathor Archives, that simple emotions such as appreciation and gratitude would be what saved us through this process … what saved us from the nightmare realms of the fourth dimension. And I agree to that.

Peggy Black … https://www.peggyblack.com/ … who is his student, also mentions this … that gratitude is the thing we need. It is what gets you through the fourth dimension with ease and grace. And I agree completely with all of that. We can overcome the negative twist of our emotions by simply thinking about gratitude.

One of the things that prevent us from expressing positive emotions is the feeling that we are not safe. Matt Kahn has done quite an interesting video on this a while ago …

Link: “Finding Safety – Matt Kahn,” by Matt Kahn All for Love, 14 October 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDFzisJBEb8 ..

… about how we can feel safe. His notion about that is that, for every unsafe emotion that we experience, such as jealousy for example … what we can say, if I understand him correctly, is: I feel safe to be aware that I feel jealous at this moment.

We could use this same technique for everything we feel. If we feel angry, enraged … whatever it is, we could say: I feel safe to be aware that I feel angry at this moment.

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

Matt Kahn has also spoken a while back about getting through this process ‘one breath at a time’. By becoming aware of our breathing, we can overcome the negative emotions.

CONCLUSION

From this discussion, I would like to conclude with these two points …

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

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

That is my thought. Everyone, take care! Till later,

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

Thoughts on Curing HIV-AIDS, and on Modern Medical Healing . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

ON THE NATURE OF HIV-AIDS

I had an insight into the nature of HIV-AIDS the other day. On the astral plane, I feel that the HIV-AIDS thought form is created through negatively aspected second chakra astral matter. Specifically, the emotional energies of hatred, fear, anger, or despair become attached to thought forms related to the second, or sexual, chakra.

Very strong negative energies attached to sexual thought forms are a form of kama-manas (desire-mind) that, after gathering sufficient density, can distill from the astral plane into the physical plan as sexual diseases such as HIV-AIDS.

PHOTONIC LIGHT, TIMELINE MERGES, ACTING OUT, AND STDs

Today, in this new Age of Light, as the beautiful light of Alcyone’s photon belt once more touches and transforms Earth and all her beings, the clearing of samskaric tendencies from past and present lifetimes on Earth is proceeding apace.

Welling up into our consciousness are all the instances of negatively aspected sexual thought forms from the many lifetimes we experienced in the recent 10,000-year Age of Darkness. As our personal timelines continue to merge, and our dimensional Awareness continues to expand, we may experience upsurges of negative sexual feelings.

On the physical plane, these upsurges can lead to ‘acting out’, which can give rise to the spread of STDs … which is why, intuitively speaking, I notice much turmoil on the clair plane regarding discovery and resolution of issues around STDs. Intuitively speaking, it seems to me that this applies to all countries, all cultures, and all age brackets, worldwide.

CHAKRIC REBALANCING

The solution to this upwelling and manifestation on the physical plane, is to rebalance, harmonize and perfect the functioning of the second chakra. Chakric rebalancing methods are available online and also in person, through many wonderful healers.

When the chakras are in perfect alignment, physical diseases will disappear and the body will come into perfect physical health. This applies even to diseases such as HIV-AIDS, which hold such a load of despair and sadness.

HOW THE SHADOW SIDE INFLUENCES SPONTANEOUS CURE

We may be perfectly cured through chakric healing, yet if we were previously diagnosed with an ‘incurable’ physical disease, after the cure we may experience  ‘popping up’ of samskaras, or misaligned thought forms, which are distortions of our own subtle bodies, to do with past learning about the inevitability of disease and death.

It is important to clear through these negative thought forms; positive affirmations may be helpful, or laughter as a healing technique, or one may continue to work with alternative healing, such as clearing through the sacred languages of light and sound.

Family and Friends and the Shadow Mind

After a spontaneous cure, family and friends will most likely continue to believe that we are incurably ill. And their thought forms, sent to us through the ‘astral air’, may negatively impact our health. This is a difficult question, which must be addressed on a case by case basis, through their education on the true nature of disease. It may be helpful to absent oneself physically from family and friends, and curtail communication with them, for a while after the spontaneous cure, as the notion that this miracle has in fact manifested is accepted by their minds and hearts.

Medical Doctors and the Shadow Mind

Our doctors, the Shadow of whose minds depend on income from illness for their own financial well-being, may also refuse to accept that our bodies are back in balance and no longer manifest these diseases.

Everybody knows that even such serious diseases as HIV-AIDS can go into remission. Even a diagnosis of liver cancer can inexplicably go into ‘remission’. The facts of remission, I feel, are ignored by the medical profession because they conflict with their beliefs on the nature of disease and healing. Yet in instance after instance, such spontaneous cures take place. The answer, I feel, will be an upgrading of the modern medical mental filters, so that the facts of remission will better fit into the modern medical Weltanshauung.

THE PAYMENT MODEL FOR THE MODERN MEDICAL PROFESSION

Long years ago, I heard of the barefoot doctors of China, who accepted payment only for the physical health of their patients … as I recall, in the form of eggs or vegetables from the people of the villages where they offered medical care. The villagers would not pay the doctors if they fell ill, yet they expected medical attention then, with the notion that the doctors had momentarily failed in their mission of maintaining a villager’s health and well-being.

This notion makes perfect sense to me, as, in my thinking, what villager could afford to give away eggs and vegetables while he or she lay ill? Yet the healthy person could easily offer sustenance to the travelling barefoot doctor.

I ask, for the sake of your consideration, would this not be a better model of payment for the modern medical community? Great ills, such as a specialist’s misdiagnosis of disease for the sake of remuneration entailed by an operation, or the specialist’s shadow side wishful thinking that a person be subject to the specialist’s illness (which wishful thinking, in aggregate, can distill down into the physical reality), might be avoided by simply changing the payment model for the modern medical profession.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

1. Introduction

Eighth Chakra and Astral Stories. This is a bit of a continuing discussion on the topic I was mentioning the day before yesterday. It had to do with the eighth chakra, up above the head, and the directorship of the astral stories. I had started to talk about it in the other video …

Link: “On Directing Our Own Astral Stories,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 10 January 2016 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-4Kl ..

Co-creating Reality. But today I thought I would continue that discussion, so that we could get a better handle on those astral stories, and start to co-create very positive astral stories for humankind. And this is because, once a number of us … a flock of Souls … agrees on a particular astral story, it will start to change everything in the Universe … everything.

Kama-Manas and Duality. The only thing is, this being the turning point, and what you might say the ‘nadir’ … the turning point into the Light … it is hard to get the consensus together. A number of great Lightworkers have been doing great work in visualizing. But so far we are not getting a tremendous amount of consensus at the same moment in time, and in the same timeline … so as to put the umph … what the Theosophical Society used to call kama-manas … desire and thought together … so as to co-create that reality in a physical sense. (According to Theosophical Society lore, kama-manas is considered to guide what is known as the ‘lower mind’ … or the Lower Mental Body … of a human being.)

Third Dimensional Grouping versus the All. So the thing that has been in the painful process of leaving … it seems like an age that this has been happening … for the last year and a half or so … is that the notion of grouping is changing. Now there are a lot of aspects to this.

People, in their current state of duality, of Dark-and-Lightness … by Dark-and-Lightness I mean lack of Awareness, combined with Awareness, or segregated, in some way, from Awareness, as the subconscious mind … in this current state, they are not recognizing the fundamental value that the notion of the All represents in this Solar System, and in this Universe.

2. Ingrouping

What grouping really is, is the fragmenting of the notion of the All into tiny little bits and pieces, each little bit being a group of Souls that feels that it is the All.

Grouping by Religion, Country or Demographics. Now they go by various names; it may be the name of a religion or a country. It might be the name of a certain demographic segment of society. We have incredible imaginations at the idea of forming groups.

Censure or Ostracism of Those Who Are Different. In the past, until 2012, what has been happening is that people have formed these groups, and censured or outcast or ostracized people that do not fit the norm for that group. And they form a consensus, on the astral plane, as to what truth is.

Polyamory Groupings. In a group that practices polyamory, qualifications for being in the group might be being a straight couple that enjoys polyamory … what is known, in Western terminology, as ‘swinging’. And so a person who is single … whether a man or a woman … who attempts entry into a polyamory group will most likely be solidly rejected and cast out, because they do not fit the important guidelines, or norms, for being in that group. That is just one example, from my personal experience on the ‘out of the loop’ side of a group equation.

Another outgroup standing I have experienced was when I seemed to be the only ‘straight’ member of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) group. Many in the group espoused polyamory, but I hold for myself the goal of faithfulness between two straight partners. While I have goals in common with the group, the broad conditions for membership in the group represent an ‘entrance bar’ that has not been breached, over the years. For others of the group, who more closely match the overall demographic, it looks to me that the possibility exists for closer bonding with the group as a whole.

Country Demarcation Lines. I was just down at the border of the United States and Mexico, the day before yesterday. And I could see, all along the way, there are these cities where half of the city is in Mexico, and called by one name; and the other half of the city is in the United States, and called by a completely different name.

I was at one such city. When I looked down the street, what I could see was this long fence, and the houses on the other side. The feeling was incredibly intense there … There were quite a lot of border patrol going around everywhere. As to the people, some spoke excellent Spanish, some spoke excellent English, and some were excellently bilingual.

The feeling was that we, in America, were a particular group, and those people on the other side of that fence were a group of people that were completely different from us. Now is that not peculiar? That is grouping … country grouping.

At that location I could feel a scar, deep into the Earth, of Gaia’s longing to return to the All. That is country grouping for you. You know? And it gives rise to all kinds of noospheric tensions, along the line of the border, and for maybe twenty to twenty-five miles on this side … probably on the other side too.

Christian Denominations. So then you have … here is a good example: Christianity. I really love Christ as an example of the way to live my life. But I do not have a lot of beliefs around my feeling … my love of Christ … that separate me into a particular group of Christians.

But in the subconscious noosphere … in the shadow side of the noosphere of Christianity … there are an incredible number of beliefs like that … just incredible … that pit one Christian against the next Christian, one pastor against the next pastor, and so one. That is an example of the dissonance to which the noosphere is subjected by the grouping that is leaving Earth.

3. Outgroups

One of the characteristics of the All is that, as our Awareness as humankind expands into the astral plane, we become aware of the astral chatter of everybody on Earth … all humankind.

The human practice of separating out certain segments of humankind into ostracized groups … into groups that are considered to be unworthy of socializing with the mainstream of the world, or who are considered to be for some reason like Molokai, for instance … the feeling of that leper colony in Hawaii.

The Molokai Mental Filter: Outgrouping Because of Disease. You know, Hawaii is a beautiful place … a beautiful island. But there was a problem, a while back, with the disease of leprosy (aka Hansen’s disease). And they did not have a cure. And so the minute they knew that people had leprosy, they would put them on the island of Molokai, the leper colony, and leave them without any means of going any place else. So the notion was that these people were physically separated from the rest of humankind.

Great advances have been made in the treatment of leprosy; now, there is quite a simple cure; whereas before, it was a fatal disease.

The Mentally Ill. And that is, in a way, true for the groups of people that are treated as if they were lepers today. And among these we have the emotionally imbalanced people and the mentally imbalanced people that are segmented away, in institutions, all over the world.

We have also the criminal element … the ‘criminal mind’, as they say; people who have been left in correctional facilities.

. . . . .

“Stories by Alice: Those Who Cross the Law”
by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
12 January 2016

 

When I was growing up back home, in the backwoods of Maryland, there was, as the crow flies, a jail not too far away, in the nearest small town, Upper Marlboro, which was the county seat. Security at the jail was not so good; more often than I can remember, in my childhood, there were jailbreaks. There was no road that went directly to that jail; but as the crow flies, it was not so many miles … just seven miles … from where we lived.

When inmates would break out of that jail, they had an alarm system … a siren … that they sounded. And you could hear it all the way to our house … through the woods, over the cow pastures, everywhere … You could when there was a jailbreak. 

I remember what my mom used to say; she would say: Now, you children, come on inside, and you stay here until they catch that criminal. [laughs]

Sooner or later, they usually caught them.

And so, there was that segment of society … what you would call the inmates of a correctional facility … that was segregated from the rest of humankind because of the way that they behaved, and how it clashed with the behavior of other people, that was considered to be the right way of interacting with society. You see?

. . . . .

The Terminally Ill. So there you have mental institutions and correctional institutions. To this I would add … not in the same vein, but nevertheless as a segregational issue … institutions such as hospices that house the terminally ill. I think, because it is such a sad event, when people are passing on, here in the United States (unlike some other countries) people who are terminally ill often get tucked away into these institutions, and hidden from the public eye.

4. Ways to Flow with the All

So what happens, when the clair chatter of everyone, all over the world, can be heard, just by me? And I might not necessarily have the ability to block this kind of chatter? This takes us back to the discussion of the eighth chakra above the head.

Dealing with Astral Story Directors Who Are Mentally Ill. If we are aware of this eighth chakra … if we are aware of who is directing the astral stories that we are hearing during the day, then we will know if the person directing them is from a mental institution, or maybe an outpatient with an imbalanced emotional body. We will be able to direct that person to those of us on the astral chatter channels who have training in dealing with this kind of thing … such as psychologists and psychiatrists, spiritual counselors, and so forth. People with those kinds of imbalances are going to need special care; and it is important for them not to direct other people’s astral stories at these times.

Dealing with Astral Story Directors Who Are Criminals. And in addition, we have had a number of instances of people housed in correctional facilities, who have quite a diverse inventory of arrest records and so forth, and who have taken over, up here [points three inches above head] from time to time. The astral stories that play out when that happens are kind of shocking and overwhelming to people with normal notions of criminality.

And so we need to refer these people who are taking over up here [points above head] and who have the personality traits of what they call the ‘criminal mind’ … we need to refer them to people who can deal with them. And that, in my experience, will very often be to the wardens of correctional facilities.

You know, there are a lot of stories out there about wardens, and how tough they have to be. But there are also quite a few good stories about wardens. I think they are much better trained today, than they were in the past, in dealing with people whose behavioral patterns do not match the norm for society. And they are much more able to ‘roll with the punches’, as it were, because that kind of toughness that you sometimes encounter at a correctional facility needs a particular kind of behavioral counseling.

My idea is that when we run into that, we can ask for help from the wardens of these institutions where these inmates stay.

No One Is Immune from Those Who Are Socially Ostracized. So the whole idea is to get help from people that are trained to help these particular segments of society because we are not immune to these people anymore. We and our children … even from one year of age and on up, are affected by these astral stories. And it can be very detrimental, if they go on in a negative vein. It can be detrimental to the child’s understanding of this physical reality.

So I am asking that, instead of treating people badly, just because they seem to be what you may say ‘misbehaving’ on the astral plane, is not going to help much, because we are all members of the All now, you see? And so we have to find help for them. That is the whole thing.

Help is available. We just have to figure out who is able, and who is willing.

On Assisting the Terminally Ill. The same thing is true of the terminally ill.

You know, in the past I have participated in a number of astral stories where people were passing on, into the astral plane, and leaving their physical bodies behind. And I do my best, under those circumstances, having read what I could of the teachings of the School of Theosophy and the notions of the astral realm, such as are found in Arthur Powell’s compilations, especially his book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena” …

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.

I have learned enough to be able to help some with an understanding of what is to come, for people who are passing from form, into the astral, finer form. But I am not really an expert, you know? And it kind of tears me up, to be dealing with people who are terminally ill. I suffer with them … instead of offering the kind of dispassionate advice that would be most helpful, I offer advice that kind of hurts my heart because as an empath I feel their feeling exactly, you know?

I am not neutral enough. And yet there are many people who are that neutral. And so, if we are dealing with that kind of story, we need to ask, on the astral plane, for the experts. That is what I think.

Ivory Tower Folks: Researchers, Doctors: How to Hold the Notion of the All? I would like to talk, too, a little about the ivory tower folks … the researchers and the doctors, and so forth … the people that hold power, but not necessarily the physical kind of power. They hold intellectual power, and intellectual schemes, in their minds, that are used to help model social behavior, and also to develop the body of knowledge of humankind.

These people are used to a kind of power. And part of it is financial, because they are paid more than those of us who are day laborers, and so forth. And yet, they also are part of the All. And in the deepest sense, every human Soul, in the All, is worth just as much as every human Soul, and contributes just as much to the body of knowledge we call the noosphere, and to its clearing.

This is going to take some understanding. This is going to take some readjustment, I feel … because those with power and status along those lines, are used to holding court and having sway over the minds and hearts of other people.

We are no longer ‘holding sway’. ‘Holding sway’ has no longer any meaning. We are all great and beautiful hearts within the All … each contributing, according to its own passion, its gifts to humankind.

For those that are used to the kind of strength and power that the ivory tower gives, it may seem like we are losing something, by acknowledging the All. Yes? But we are not. We will find that the reality that we co-create is so much richer, and more abundant, for all humankind … so much more beautiful and fulfilling, for our own selves and our own careers … that it will be well worth it.

That moment of insecurity, that moment of wondering what is going to happen next … will it be as good as it was before? … will be overcome in the understanding of what is before us … of the wonders that are before us. This is honestly the case, I feel.

Yet I understand that those who are, in terms of status, above other people, would have that moment of wondering: Would I have that nice of a house? Will my wife still love me? Will I have that wonderful a career? Will people look up to me, when others also rise to their own sense of personal power?

That is the question: What will it be like? And from that question … from that wondering … we can turn to the possibilities and the answers that have been, until now, beyond conception.

Young People as Eighth Chakra Directors. I have more to say! … This has to do with the young people. The young people are getting into the conversation. And sometimes we recognize what you might call immature emotions and immature evaluations going on. [Points above head.] And they are directing the play! … Very young people might be directing the play.

They might be taking on sexual characteristics which are just like rote programming that they have picked up from their parents. And so, they can confuse us about what is going on, in the ‘astral airs’.

So what we have to do is ask. We hear the astral story, and we ask: How old are you? … And when we get the answer that we are talking to young people … children less than the age of young adults … then we can refer them to their teachers at school (if they are at school) … or to their parents (if the children are at home).

In other words, if we refer them to the people that can help them with their schooling and their understanding of the astral plane, through the physical interaction that they have with them … by talking to them.

The Very Rich and Powerful as Eighth Chakra Directors. So there is that: The young people. And there are many other categories. Let us take the very rich, the very powerful. There are some people like that, who are used to getting their way no matter what.

It is not really true, because they are living their lives; and they are going to pass on, just like everyone else. They experience many of the hardships that everyone else does … heartbreak, the ups and downs of life, poor health, and eventual death. But in their mental filter … in their understanding of who they are … they see themselves as invincible. And they enjoy the notion of always getting their own way.

The Importance of Strengthening the Personal Electromagnetic Field (EMF) to Protect Ourselves. I think the thing to do, in this instance, is to keep one’s own electromagnetic field always as strong and as beautiful as possible. When our electromagnetic field is strong … through the practice of yoga, and so forth; when it is strong, because we are living less stressful lives, we are eating as well as we can, we are getting plenty of rest, and so forth; when we take good care of ourselves, and listen to our own hearts, then people just naturally like us. You know?

People just naturally do not want to cause us any harm and to get their own way by injuring us. But if they do, I think the thing to do is just to compliment them, and tell them that they are very much appreciated, and very much cared for, and so on … All Souls long for that: They long for nurturing and loving kindness.

Buddhist Metta Prayer for All Beings. Along those lines, the Buddhist metta prayer is a very helpful prayer to say, on behalf of everyone on Earth …

May all beings have plenty to eat.
May all beings be happy.
May all beings have a good place to stay.
May all beings be healthy. 
 [and so on]

Basically, we, as a mainstream society … as we become used to the astral chatter … especially if we place our Awareness above the head, at the eighth chakra … we are beginning to understand the nuances of the socially outcast; of those that we have compartmentalized and segmented away from the mainstream.

Valuing and Finding Help for Those of Each Group. We are beginning to understand that they are part of us; they are part of humanity. And we are beginning to treat them not as outcasts … not as ostracized people … but as part of the All, as a valued part of the All; an important part of the All, with something to contribute, that we will find out about. You know? And we are beginning to find, for each human being, the kind of help that is needed for them to ascend.

Clearing the Eighth Chakra, Developing the Heart, and Clearing the Personal EMF Field. As they say: Souls ascend one by one. And so the clearing of our own personal electromagnetic field above the head, concentrating on the heart chakra, and developing the magnetic field are really the answer to all the worries and fears and concerns that people begin to experience as they expand outward into the astral plane, and to familiarize themselves once more with the concept of the All.

……….

Long talk! You all take care. Love you lots! You are the greatest! Till next we meet …

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

Dear Ones,

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THEOSOPHY

The viewpoint toward capital punishment in the book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, is unique, and I feel, well founded. This passage is pertinent …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 ... “Chapter XV: The After-Death Life: Special Cases,” page 137, first full paragraph (beginning “The victims …”) through the second paragraph (ending “…same community.”)

This passage expresses that people who are executed for their crimes find themselves suddenly torn from their physical bodies, and thrust into the astral realm. There, in their astral body (their emotional body) they experience such negative feelings as hatred, revenge, sexual passion, and so on.

These feelings that they project while in astral form influence Earth’s noosphere just as much as if these murderers and criminals were still in physical form … only more so, since the suddenness and brutality of capital punishment have invigorated their negative samskaras.

THE LAW OF MAGNETISM AND THE PREDATOR-PREY RELATIONSHIP

In general, I feel from personal experience of potential so-called ‘victimhood’, when criminals discover what they consider to be a potential victim or ‘pigeon’, then their own criminal thoughts will flow to the intended ‘pigeon’ … by way of the law of magnetism to the effect that opposites attract. This is what I have elsewhere termed the ‘predator-prey’ relationship.

Thus, while the criminal is in physical form, his mini-noosphere, and its potentially catastrophic effects, is in the main limited to himself (the region of his own head, especially) and the heads of his intended victims. I would term this a localized ‘mini-noospheric’ or -desire-thought (kama-manas) effect.

HOW A CRIMINAL IN ASTRAL FORM MAY INJURE LIVING PEOPLE AFTER HE HAS BEEN EXECUTED

The Astral Criminal Is Able to Will Himself Instantaneously to Be Near an Intended Victim Who Is Still in Physical Form. When the astral body of such a criminal is suddenly expelled from his physical body as a result of capital punishment, it is no longer limited by Earthly geography, as there is no geography on the astral plane. To be anywhere on Earth, the astral criminal simply imagines this, and finds his astral body there. And so, the mind and emotions of the astral criminal can, and inevitably will find itself immediately physically in front of the body of the intended victim.

The victim, being still in physical form, cannot escape. And so, the victim is ever at the mercy of the deceased criminal, until the criminal’s astral matter has purified to the extent that the astral form may be discarded, and the criminal may go on to spiritual schooling in the higher astral planes, under the tutelage of his guardian angels and other beings of grace and light.

Unfortunately, this process of purification may take far longer than the intended victim’s lifetime. And, one may presume, longer than that of a succession of victims in physical form, upon whom the astral criminal may, in accordance with his accumulated samskaras, set himself to prey.

By Increasing the Fear Samskaras, Astral Intrusions Can Make the Intended Victim Still in Physical Form an Easier ‘Mark’. What these astral intrusions do to the marked Earthly ‘victims’ is to aggravate the samskaric tendencies toward fear that they carry in their Soul fields. It is these samskaric tendencies that subject the intended victims to the attentions of human ‘predators’. And so, the effect of the attentions of the astral murderer is to make it more likely that such victims will be preyed upon by potential criminals still in Earthly form.

Astral Criminals Can Increase the Murderous Disposition of Criminals Still in Physical Form. There is another effect that astral criminals, especially criminals who have been executed (for reasons described above), can have upon those still in form. Such astral criminals may just as likely gravitate to people of murderous disposition who are still in physical form, and living in the astral criminals’ prior Earthly locales. This murderous astral intervention can cause their compatriots’ violent instincts to increase to the point of ‘acting out’ their behaviors in physical form. This is one of the likely causes of the phenomenon of many murders, enacted by different criminals, taking place in the same neighborhood.

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