PURPORTED HEALTH BENEFITS

There is an herbal extract powder called He Shou Wu that is said to have many wonderful health qualities, including longevity, hair strength and hair growth, and liver and kidney detoxification.

STORY ABOUT MR. HE

There is quite a colorful tale about this herb, and a gentleman named Mr. He, who found at the age of 50 or so that he could, after all, have children by adding this herb to his diet. As legend would have it, he married, had 19 children, and lived till 160 years of age. And his hair changed from grey to black! …

I have tried this herb from time to time. The one I bought was “He Shou Wu Fo ti Root Extract Powder – by Primal Herb | Longevity Tea – Supports Hair Growth & Glowing Skin | Organic Potent 30:1-84 Servings – Aged Roots | Includes Bamboo Spoon ” by Primal Herb … which I purchased at Amazon … www.amazon.com ..

DOSE

I have found, in general, in the use of health supplements, herbs, and Western medicines, it is best to follow one’s own intuition regarding the size of the dose and the frequency of use. That is just my personal intuition; many people feel safer taking ‘just what the doctor orders’. So, for those who are not confident of their intuition, I agree the latter may be the best course of action.

In my case, because I am very sensitive to herbs, I find it best for me to use only a ‘grain’ of He Shou Wu a week … a ‘grain’ is a unit of measurement about as big as a wheat seed or a barley seed. (1) I used it in occasionally in 2017, and priorly, with good success, after I adjusted the dose down to an occasional ‘grain’. For me, it worked fine. You must judge for yourself.

CAVEAT

From my own experience, I ought to offer this advice. I also purchased from Amazon, in 2017, a similar herb called “Fo-Ti Tieng – Ho Shou Wu – Powder,” by TerraVita, sold by ZooScape … There was something about it that did not agree with me, and I had to discard it. Note the similarity in the name … So I would suggest avoiding ‘Ho’ and trying out ‘He’, if the notion appeals to you.

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

Martian Archives: Gut Bacteria, Viral Attacks, and Colon pH . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 16 August 2018; revised on 7 May 2020

  • THE WAR CRY OF THE VIRUSES
  • DID OUR MARTIAN BACTERIAL COLONISTS CREATE VIRUSES BY MISTAKE?
  • A REQUEST THAT MARTIANS NEUTRALIZE VIRUSES’ REPRODUCTIVE CAPACITY THROUGH RECOMBINANT DNA TECHNOLOGY

Dear Ones,

I thought I would talk about another issue to do with keeping our Martian bacterial colonists of the large colon happy. That has to do with pH. And it has also to do with viruses.

THE WAR CRY OF THE VIRUSES

It seems to me, first of all, that when we are attacked by viruses, those of us who are clairaudient will hear a din of war … The feeling that is called the V— D— syndrome will begin to manifest in our local noosphere. And that, I feel, is the war cry of the viruses.

The viruses, unlike our Martian friends … the Elder Race … are out to do us harm, almost invariably. They are warring against us.

DID OUR MARTIAN BACTERIAL COLONISTS CREATE VIRUSES BY MISTAKE?

I have heard stories, in the clairaudient realm, to the effect that the viruses were the unintended by-product of various Martian genetic experiments, and that the Martians had no idea that they could reproduce.

A REQUEST THAT MARTIANS NEUTRALIZE VIRUSES’ REPRODUCTIVE CAPACITY THROUGH RECOMBINANT DNA TECHNOLOGY

I have asked the Martians to look into a way to neutralize the viruses’ reproductive capacity, so that they cannot wreak havoc upon the human form. The Martians have agreed to look into this. They are the experts in recombinant DNA technology; I feel certain that, if any group within our body and here on Earth … any planetary body … can do that work, it is the Martians who can do it. We can rely upon them to come up with a solution.

A SUGGESTION THAT WE MAKE DIPLOMATIC OVERTURES TO THE MARTIANS REGARDING ENGINEERING LONGER LIFESPAN IN HUMANS

I have heard stories, also, in the clairaudient realm, to the effect that the Martians prefer us to be short-lived, and so, have engineered various illnesses into the human form, to make that happen.

I feel certain that, through future talks, we can point out to our Martian allies, the benefits to the Martian population of longer-lived humankind. As was the case in the early Biblical times, when people could live as long as 800 years, these are coming-up times when people will be able to live as long as 800 or 1,000 years once more. The Martians can be of great help in accomplishing this, and we can do our part by providing an excellent micro-environment for our Martian allies in the large colon.

BUFFERED VITAMIN C, OR OTHER BUFFERING AGENTS TO ELIMINATE A VIRAL THREAT BY ADJUSTING INTESTINAL pH

To get back to an experiment I did the other day, with regard to the V— D— war cry of the bad viruses, the cold-producing viruses … In my case, it had to do with my lungs, and expelling grief, and the fact that we have an inordinate amount of planets retrograde, through the entire summer, and into September. It is a time when we have to look out for our pH … and for the welfare of the Martian bacterial colonists of our large colon … more than other times.

Anyway, there was a war cry. It was continuing for hours and days. I realized that it had to do with an invasion of viruses; finally I figured this out. The way to deal with viruses is through pH adjustment, and through ingestion of Vitamin C. However, the types of Vitamin C that are popular in the stores are contraindicated, I feel.

I have done experiments with all kinds of products, and I have found out that buffered, powdered Vitamin C is the best product to immediately eliminate the viral threat. And so I tried that. I found it on Amazon … www.amazon.com … without any sugar additives. You just take a tiny scoopful, and put it in a glass of water, and stir it around, and it makes a fizzy drink. You rest for, say, a half hour after that … if you are able, a little longer … You may find, as did I, that it immediately causes that V— D— war cry, that consternational, life-threatening sound that happens in the gut brain, to go away.  This is the sound that adversely influences our daily action: It can cause motor difficulties; it can cause accidents, either motor vehicle accidents or walking accidents … all kinds of accidents; and many other ‘bad luck’ things to happen.

It is important to eliminate the viral threat as soon as it occurs and before it manifests as an illness. My suggestion is: Buffered Vitamin C, available from Amazon … not sugary Vitamin C. The reason it has to be buffered is that buffering normalizes the pH in the large intestine, and makes it impossible for the viruses to survive there. I think it must be that they probably thrive on an acidic environment in the large colon, and you want to eliminate that as soon as possible.

If you have no buffered Vitamin C, you may find other ways to create a buffering effect in the large intestine, ways that might be cheaper, for instance, and more available to you locally.

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

Legend of the Fall . a vision by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is a Legend of the Fall. The first clip in the video has poor quality audio, but the Summary that follows the video will fill in the gaps.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I have the wildest story for you today. By all means, take it with a grain of salt … It is just a story. It is a myth.

There is a story that there were Great Ones who oversaw the Earth … all these ages, when we humankind have been on it, in various forms. And 150,000 years ago, there was an accident … as some have described … in which the great planet Earth fell to a lower dimension … to the third dimension.

And at that time of the Fall, the Overseers … the wonderful beings that oversee the development of Souls into God-consciousness … they came to us human beings here on Earth. And they already knew what would be happening in the next 150,000 years.

They knew that we would descend to such a state of consciousness, that the demon world would be able to take advantage of our Soul fields, and use them as energy, and food for themselves. Not in the sense of destroying our Soul fields … because Souls are eternal, and indestructible. But, in terms of suffering. In terms of agony. In terms of separation from Source, they would be able to do that.

So, in their kindness and in their foresight … in their wisdom … these great beings asked an astral race of beings … very tiny, compared to us … to stand by us beings who were in human form, and to care for our astral bodies. And to act as the collectors of the agony that we had been feeling, as a race, as a species, in these latter years. And to collect that agony, on the astral plane, and to take it up, to areas under our throat, right here …

… on the astral form, where the demons could come, and use that energy. and take that energy away. every day. Imagine that these tiny beings might also, once a month … say, during the Full Moon, have the Soul mission to transmit information about our personal well-being to the Great Ones, to the Caretakers of Earth. And that once a month, in their joy, in their selfless service, they do that for us.

So if you should run into beings like this … in your imagination … Do not be concerned, and do not be frightened. They are happy to be of service to us, in the state to which we have fallen … and to allow us to survive, in this world that is plagued by hostile lifeforms on the astral plane.

They it is whom we will greet in friendship, when we rise up again, to the fifth dimension … as our dearest friends and allies.

Postscript 1

As a matter of fact, my feeling is: We would not have survived here, had not these tiny little beings been harvesting the negative energies from our astral bodies, and accumulating it in these two places, on either side of the neck, in our astral forms, so that the Demon Realm, which delights in that type of energy, could take it away from us.

In other words, our astral bodies would have perished, had they not had these disposal units for this toxic emotional content that manifests in the fourth dimension … and which appears, differently aspected, in the third dimension … manifesting as bodily pain, bodily aches, and in a very stressful scenario, as diseases of the physical body. And ultimately as death.

So these little beings … no wonder they are so joyous and happy! They are doing us a great service. And, is it possible that the beings to whom they have been transmitting information all this time, are the Elohim, or their representatives? … These keepers of the sacred trust of humankind … these Great Beings … the Elohim, or their representatives for us? These are just thoughts …

Postscript 2

Now, as a postscript: As our astral bodies clear … as the Incoming Light alters the many resonances of the third dimension and the fourth dimension … so that it becomes rarer, more brilliant, more crystalline, more pure … so that it becomes more joyful … so that it sings a song of resonance with the Divine, with the Supreme, and with Source … and as all of these lower, and more dissonant energies leave Earth, then what will we find?

We will find less of the energies in our astral forms that cause the diseases in the physical form. We will find less work for these little beings to do. Less food for the demon world.

And what will happen then? All of that suffering, all of that pain, all of that discord, all of that dissonance, will soon be a thing of the past. And our bodies will be disease-free, pain-free. We will live a long time then.

And what will be lost when this occurs? In those days beyond the days, we will have lost the freedom to experience such diverse songs as are heard on the Earth today … Songs of the greatest suffering. Songs of the greatest pain.

So listen well, today, and record what you hear, in your heart. From us, to the Universe, these great memories will be transmitted. And in that way, all beings of Light everywhere will come to know.

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

Dear Ones,

THE BENEFITS OF DEVELOPING AND BALANCING THE HEART CHAKRA

This blog describes a series of steps to help us develop and balance the heart chakra. The result will be neutral mind, compassion, empathy, and plugging into the Infinite as a wellspring of vitality, health, and longevity.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND SELF-SACRIFICE

Unconditional love is not, as many believe, self-sacrifice. Rather, it is a chance to be all we truly are, to allow our heart energy field to expand so that it encompasses all the other chakras.

In this way, we permanently rise above the machinations of Team Dark. Or to put it another way, we are able to feel our being in a way that is unconstricted by the divisions (autonomic / voluntary, and so on) of our neural net. We begin to experience unity or oneness … the unity field.

WHAT THE HEART CHAKRA LOOKS LIKE: TWO CONJOINED FUNNELS

The energy of the heart chakra flows out in two whirling cones of energy, shaped like funnels. The tips of the funnels touch deep in the chest, at a spot between the nipples but located next to the backbone.

The Hridaya: The Deep Inner Heart

This spot is the deep inner heart, where a ‘zero point’ or black hole connects us with the realm of infinite possibilities. It is this spot on which you will concentrate after the front and back cones are brought to Awareness and cleansed of Soul wounding. This hidden inner heart is where we feel unconditional love.

A DEPICTION OF THE DOUBLE CONES OF THE CHAKRAS

This image gives a good idea of the conformation of the body energy discussed in this blog. It depicts double cones for all the chakras …

Image: Double-funnel chakras of the human energy field …  https://i0.wp.com/www.canalwoman.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/chakrasdrawing.jpg?resize=400%2C354 ..

The Kundalini

The lower, red funnel (at the rectum) and the upper, violet funnel (at the top of the head) are actually one long funnel; the connecting cord is the kundalini energy. It is along the line of the kundalini … where the kundalini intersects the junction of the cones of the heart chakra … that the hridaya, the deep inner heart, is located.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is depicted in green … In the above-mentioned image, you can see the two green funnels, meeting at the center line of the body. Or slightly behind the point depicted, a little more toward the backbone.

Chakras, Pre-Ascension and Post-Ascension

This picture of the chakras is the pre-Ascension scheme. After Ascension there are 5 or so additional chakras.

FRONT CONE OF THE HEART CHAKRA: COMPASSION AND EMPATHY

Many Lightworkers are adept at feeling the front cone of the heart chakra. This feeling allows them to develop empathy with all living beings.

This energy of the front cone of the heart is the energy through which we relate to other human beings. It is not necessarily corded energy, as with a family member or friend, but sometimes it expresses itself in that way.

Energetic Movement of the Front Cone of the Heart Chakra

Here is an image that, to me, depicts the energetic motion of the front cone of the heart chakra, only laid on its side …

Image: Drop of water falling into a green body of water and down into the water, with ripples on the surface of the water … http://www.deniselinn.com/graphics/Chakra-Portal-4.jpg ..

I like the ripple effect, which reminds me of how the heart chakra energy ripples outward in ever widening circles through a person’s own energy field. The descending droplet of water in the image reminds me of divine Awareness, incoming through the deep inner heart, and outgoing into the phenomenal world through the front cone of a person’s heart chakra.

To Open and Vivify the Front Cone of the Heart

Arching the Back and Expanding the Chest While Standing. Stand up.  Arch the back backwards, expanding the chest. Arms can be up, above the head, for extra arching effect. Or hands can be on hips, for less of an arch. Or arms can be low and pushed back, as in this image …

Image: Taoist Arch: Standing up and arching the back, arms back … http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5141/3105/1600/taoist.jpg ..

Camel Pose. This pose is a little more difficult: In a kneeling position, grasp the ankles. Let the trunk of the body rise upward and outward. Let the head fall back, as you arch the back backwards and expand the chest outward …

Image: “File:Ustrasana – Camel Pose.jpg,” in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ustrasana_-_Camel_Pose.jpg ..

Placing Awareness on the Front Cone of the Heart. Here are the steps to develop daily Awareness of the front cone of the heart …

FEEL your heart energy in the middle of the front of your chest. As you go about your day, feel the distortions in the smooth conical whirl of heart energy. OR feel the little pains or stiffness or heavinesses in your heart … whatever it feels like … from moment to moment.

NOTICE how other people’s heart energy feels to you. If you cannot feel their heart energy, just imagine that you can. Make a game of it. Both ways are equally effective.

NOTICE how the energy of the front cone of your heart reacts to the dimples … twists … heaviness of other people’s hearts. Or if you cannot feel their hearts, notice how your heart energy changes in the presence of other people. Either way is fine.

NOTICE how your heart springs back from its momentary distortions … how it returns to its native smooth conical configuration in the middle of your chest.

IF BODILY SENSATIONS distant from the heart assert themselves, place your Awareness on those sensations. When they subside, bring your attention back to your heart.

BACK CONE OF THE HEART CHAKRA: THE INFINITE WELL OF VITALITY, HEALTH AND LONGEVITY

The back cone of the heart chakra allows us to relate to the Infinite well of vitality, health and longevity. Very few people consciously practice Awareness of this back cone of the heart, yet there are compelling reasons to do so …

Reasons for Developing This Energy

Preventing Lightworker Burnout. The back cone of the heart must be enlivened and brought to Awareness in order to prevent Lightworker empathic burnout.

Overcoming a Codependent Behavior Pattern. Its vivification also prevents codependency … the energy of accommodation to a person who is an addict.

Escaping from the Snares of an Antisocial Personality, who relies on receiving love from other people while at the same time withholding his own energy of love from others. Energetic attachment to an antisocial personality cannot be escaped unless the energy of the back funnel of the heart is as strong as that of the front funnel of the heart. Yet the action of predation by an antisocial personality creates a feeling that there is ‘no one to watch my back’; this feeling further weakens the back of the heart. Thus it is doubly important to strengthen the energy of the back of the heart when attachment to the energy of an antisocial personality occurs.

Energetic Balance of the Entire Heart. In energetic terms, developing this energy of the back heart funnel allows us to balance and vivify the entire heart chakra.

To Locate the Back Cone of the Heart Chakra

Place Your Awareness on the Area Between the Shoulder Blades. According to “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of International Medicine,” written over 4,000 years ago, wind and cold enter the pores of the skin through acupressure points located here.

Image: Line drawing of a person’s back, showing two double sets of acupressure points (each consisting of 2 points on either side of the spine), starting just below the neck and ending mid-shoulder blade. The legend of the image states: “Relieves upper back tension, difficult breathing, insomnia, hypertension, trauma, and emotional pain” … http://www.acupressure.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/upper-back-pts1.gif ..

The lowest set of 4 points in the image is the most important for vivifying the back cone of the heart chakra. But the area on which you will be placing your Awareness includes the place between the lower part of your shoulder blades as well, and around the ‘wing tips’ of the shoulder blade. All this area is involved in the back funnel of the heart.

To Open and Vivify the Back Cone of the Heart Chakra

Here is how to open and vivify the back cone of the chakra …

Go for a Back Massage. Lie face down, hands with palms flat on the mat next to your shoulders. Ask the person giving the massage to concentrate on the area between and around the edges of your shoulder blades.

Use a Wooden Spinal Massage Roller, gently, to loosen up the muscles between your shoulder blades. 

Swinging a Bat. Here is an ancient Indian practice to ‘unstick’ this area: While standing, swing a thick branch or club gently back and forth. Or you can use a baseball bat.

Yoga Mudra. Or, you can open up the energy flow in this area with yoga mudra: Sit on your heels, grasping your hands behind the back. Bring the forehead to the floor and stretch the clasped hands up to the ceiling. Hold this position with long, deep breathing for at least 3 minutes. 

Here is an image of a gentler modification of this technique …

Image: Yoga Mudra: A man is sitting cross-legged on the floor, but it would be all right to sit on a stool instead. Fingers are interlaced behind his back. He is gently bending his chest down toward the floor … http://www.pinklotus.org/KYscanned/asanas%20Yoga%20Mudra%20asana.jpg ..

Place Awareness on the Back Cone of the Heart. After you practice the technique of your choice, feel the energy of the back cone of your heart. Notice how it closes down and opens up.

Practice Allowing the Back Cone of the Heart to Relax. If the energy of the back cone of the heart contracts, allow it to return to its native, smoothly flowing conical state.

ON OPENING THE ENTIRE HEART CHAKRA

Cat Cow Pose

On all fours, arch the spine up and down, gently. When the spine is arched up, the head tucked in. When the spine is arched down, the head is arched back …

Image: Cat Cow Pose … http://workouttrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Yoga-Poses-Cat-cow-Back-Stretch-Pose.jpg ..

On the downward arch, the front funnel of the heart chakra is vivified. On the upward arch, the back funnel of the heart chakra is vivified.

Lotus Mudra (Padma Mudra)

Here is a finger position to open the heart chakra …

Meditation on the Hridaya
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
4 December 2013

Pose. Sit on a chair, feet flat on the ground, back straight but relaxed, hands palm down on your legs, chin ever so slightly tucked in.

Breathing. Make your breathing as long and deep as is comfortable for you.

Roving Gaze, Horizontal or Higher. Let your eyes be open and either horizontal or higher. Do not look down, and do not concentrate on any one point. One-pointed concentration, as advocated in many yoga texts, allows a person to escape from the body, into the higher realms. This is a nice ‘preview of coming attractions,’ but it is a bit of a sidetrack too. What we want is to bring heaven down to Earth. Right down into our physical being. So, let the eyes rove where they will, as long as you’re looking at the horizon or higher.

Where to Place Awareness. Place the Awareness at a point in your body between the nipples, but deep within the body, just in front of the spinal column. This is the point where we can feel unconditional love. Continue for 3 minutes.

Benefits. When you are accustomed to this deep inner heart meditation, you can begin to use it whenever you find yourself too drawn into the events of the day. It will balance and neutralize the karma that is playing out before your eyes. It will allow you to go beyond the causal body, and to become aware of your body of Light.

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

This video is about replenishing the pranic reserve, which is located just beneath the rib cage, using a breathing technique (a pranayam). For the video thumbnail, I turned a sky photo upside down because, upside down, it reminded me of the dome-topped ‘pranic reserve’.

After the video is an extensively edited Summary, which I feel to be better stated than the video. Then after the Summary are additional sections not in the Video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I would like to talk for a minute about replenishing the pranic reserve. You may know about the pranic column, the pranic ‘tube’, which is roughly equivalent, on the pranic energy level, to the spine. The pranic column is the bearer to the body of vital energy that we need, so as to stay alive.

In addition to this, there is the pranic reserve … which is, on the pranic energy level, a place located just under the bottom of the diaphragm, a muscle that lies under the rib cage, and forms an inverted U … a dome shape … when the stomach is tucked in … [points to ribs and diaphragm] … When the diaphragm muscle contracts, the dome shape flattens out, the chest volume increases, and the lungs inflate. When it relaxes, the opposite happens.

This diaphragm muscle is the top of the ‘pranic reserve’. The reserve extends from the diaphragm, down toward the stomach.

DESCRIPTION: black-and-white self portrait from just below the waist to top of head. Fluffy white clouds and sky in the shape of an inverted U, beginning at the bottom of the rib cage and extending downward for about 6 inches. Depth and width of the pranic reserve varies by person.

One way to activate and charge up the pranic reserve, is to do rapid, forceful breathing, while pumping the navel point in and out, for a few minutes. Do the breath through the nose, with the mouth closed. Then inhale completely, exhale completely, hold the air out, and draw all the internal organs up, so that they exert pressure on the diaphragm. When the held breath and the pressure become a little uncomfortable, then breathe in again.

While the breath is held out, you will feel the pranic reserve filling with energy.

I think that this breath also helps to purify and clean out the spleen chakra (aka splenic chakrasee below), which is located, on an energetic level, beneath the lowest left rib, and which bears vitality globules from the surrounding ethers or atmosphere into the body for distribution for health.

I believe that this breathing, which admittedly is difficult at first, and hard to master, has two benefits

    • It replenishes the pranic reserve,
    • And it clears and cleans out the spleen chakra, and restores it to perfect functioning.

In the old days, they say, the yogis, when they had perfected the technique of storing prana in the pranic reserve, could live for hundreds of years underground, with no air whatsoever … in a state of hibernation, or suspended animation … on the energy of the pranic reserve.

This is a good technique to master, even if the old tales about the hibernating yogis turn out to be a little far-fetched. It is also good if your energy has become depleted and this lack of energy threatens your health and well-being. It is important to get that back in balance the very first thing; a top priority.

How the Spleen Chakra was feeling to me, when I did the pranic reserve replenishment breathing exercise last night … It felt like a tube or organelle on the astral plane, that surfaces to the left side of the body, under the lowest left rib. An organelle that has a diaphragm on it that opens and closes, apparently through will power … but for most people, probably unconscious will power. So when we do the breathing exercise to fill the pranic cavity, it naturally opens up and lets the prana (the vitality globules) in.

That is just my thought on this. I am sure others will have more detail at later times.

THE LOCATION AND FUNCTION OF THE SPLEEN CHAKRA (AKA THE SPLENIC CHAKRA)

The spleen chakra, or spleen centre, is the seat of the kundalini energy. It energizes the sexual organs and heats the blood, which then heats the body. Most people mistakenly believe it is located between the navel point and the basal chakra. In point of fact, it is above and to the left of the navel point, beneath the lowermost left rib, and deep inside the body.

In this lateral view, the spleen chakra is labeled the ‘spleen centre’, Notice how it opens up deeper inside the body than the other major chakras …

You can search Google for this image as well; at last look, it was on pinterest, but posting the link causes Google to block this web page, possibly due to complaints regarding copyright infringement by pinterest.

The names of the chakras in the above image are different from those generally used today. Here is a list, with today’s name first, followed by the name in the image, in parentheses …

  • Crown Chakra (Top of the Head Centre),
  • Third-Eye Point (Between the Eyebrows Centre),
  • Throat Chakra (Throat Centre),
  • Heart Chakra (Heart Centre),
  • Spleen Chakra or Organelle (Spleen Centre)
  • Sacral Chakra or Sex Chakra (missing in the Powell drawing, possibly due to the mores of the time),
  • Navel Point (Navel Centre), and
  • Basal Chakra (Base of the Spine Centre).

In this similar lateral view, the diaphragm and the nerves (including the splenic plexus) are labeled, but the chakras are not labeled. I have some reservations regarding the way in which the chakras are drawn in this image …

Image: Lateral view of the chakras, including the Spleen Chakra … http://www.minhtrietmoi.org/Theosophy/CWLeadbeater/Chakras-CWL_files/image015.jpg ..

In this frontal view, the chakras shown as circles, from top to bottom, are …

  • Crown Chakra, Third-Eye Point, Throat Chakra, Heart Chakra (depicted as slightly on the left side of the person, corresponding to the location of the physical heart), Spleen Chakra or Organelle (under the lowermost left rib, from the point of view of the person pictured, and not the person viewing the picture), Navel Point (with ‘spokes’) and Basal Chakra …

It seems to me that the above image may be showing the Basal Chakra where I would put the Sacral or Sex Chakra, and possibly mistaking the latter to be the Spleen Chakra or Organelle.

OTHER WAYS TO HEAL THE SPLEEN CHAKRA

I have found there are certain acupressure points associated with the Spleen Chakra. When these points are out of balance, they will cause a dull ache at the place where the energetic imbalance occurs. You can locate them that way; and in fact, you can locate any acupressure points that need work that way.

In the case of the Spleen Chakra, there are two major points on the underside of the lowest left rib, near the center of the rib. There is a row of minor points around the side of that same rib, proceeding all the way round to the back part of the same rib, where you will find two more major acupressure points.

  • If any of these points are aching, then beginning with the point that aches most, apply gentle fingertip pressure until the ache stops.
  • Then you will feel another ache on the same line of points (under the lowermost left rib). Keeping the pressure on the first point, place another fingertip on the new acupressure point and apply gentle pressure there as well.
  • After a time the first point will cease to ache. It may be that another point on this same line of points will begin to ache. If so, then release pressure on the first acupressure point. Continue to hold gentle fingertip pressure on the second point, and at the same time apply gentle fingertip pressure to the third point. And so on.

You may need to repeat this technique for a few days, until the energy balance in this line of acupressure points re-establishes itself.

It may be necessary to go to a doctor of Western medicine, with adjunctive help from a certified acupressurist or acupuncturist, if self-help does not return your body to balance.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, I Am Alice.

Mysterious Waves of Sleepiness During the Day

I have an interesting thing to tell you about, that just now happened to me. It happens sometimes when I am driving, or sitting in meditation, or just walking around, doing the chores at home, during the daytime, that I have a sudden feeling that I would like to fall asleep. A feeling of sleepiness rolls over me.

Two years ago, I started wondering what was the cause of these feelings … I just had a feeling that they will not be there in the future, and that if I could figure out what was going on, I could eliminate that kind of sleepiness for good.

The Forgetfulness Thought Cloud of the Noosphere?

I have been trying and trying, but it is very hard to resist that sudden impulse to rest and sleep … very difficult for me. I have been trying really hard! Today was my first instance of success: I was driving along, coming over her to sit for awhile, and one of the waves rolled over me. Fortunately I was right nearly here, so I stopped, and I really felt into that wave of deep forgetfulness that rolled over me like that. I really felt into it, and held it in my awareness for a minute.

And when I did that, what seemed to have no message at all in it … only the notion of sleeping … dissolved. It sort of dissolved, like a little piece of hard bread. It dissolved in that Awareness … or changed into a communication. And the communication was from somebody else. Whether I knew that person or not, I do not know. But it was from another person.

I could hear the tone of voice of the person. It sounded like mainly just the third chakra desire world, with just one short mental message in it … A very short mental message, and a lot of emotion in it.

It seemed like these waves of sleepiness came, one after the other … following each other through the noosphere of Earth like a train of forgetfulness, or a train of sleepiness … like the opposite of noospheric NoDoz!

The next wave that came through, I was ready for; I said to myself: This is the way to figure out what is going on. The next wave came over me, and I felt so much like physically sleeping! And I just held that sleepiness in my mind … deep sleepiness, like a command to fall asleep. And the same thing happened: It dissolved! The forgetfulness quality of the thought form dissolved into a brief command, or a brief message, that was laden with the emotion of the desire world.

Is not that something? I mean, it is such a relief to finally have an answer to this question: Why would I suddenly fall asleep? I always felt compelled to do so.

I do not care for compulsion. I like knowledge. I like waking up. I like Awareness. And I like the expansive feeling of this New Age of New Creation.

So, just to let you know: If you sit when you suddenly feel like snoozing, and pay very close attention, you may also log onto the forgetfulness thought cloud of the noosphere! [laughs]

Could it be that these waves of forgetfulness constitute … or are some part of … the Veil of Forgetfulness that is spoken about in many theologies? Just a thought: Maybe that is it.

Why the Devas Created the Veil of Forgetfulness

For instance, I remember talking to the nature spirits about the devas, some time ago. The nature spirits were saying that the devas had created the Veil of Forgetfulness so that human beings … when they cross between the physical world back to the astral plane … and from the astral plane back to the physical world … would not suffer so much with the notion that they would pass on again, or that they recently had physical form.

In other words, the devas did this out of compassion for the short-lived human race. Now, it is not that we have to be short-lived; but because of the Age of the Fall, we have been rather short-lived in recent times.

Because we incarnate over and over again, the Veil of Forgetfulness soothes our hearts by helping us to forget the pain that we went through, and the sense of separation we had in a prior lifetime.

How might that work, then? As you know, there is a great deal of societal repression around the thought of death these days … at least, in the United States. People just do not talk about it. They do not like to look at or think about it … at least, not in a realistic way.

As soon as our loved ones pass on, we are likely to try to forget it. And this is understandable because of the pain of separation from loved ones that is involved in death.

It could be … because the devas and the nature spirits are involved in the fashioning of the astral plane … that they have devised a Veil made of the repression of memories of death, that somehow clears the minds of the people passing from one state or phase to the other … clears them of these memories.

So I hope to have an open, neutral mind about all the thoughts that I experience, whether they are from my own mind, or just galumphing in from other people’s minds, I think. And that … for me, at least … will help eliminate this Veil of Forgetfulness. That is my current working hypothesis.

Sea Foam or Ocean Waves?
A Visualization by Alice B. Clagett
12 June 2015

I would like to close with a visualization …

Imagine yourself standing at the seashore on a calm, sunny day …
With the beautiful ocean waves coming in …
Bright blue, and very transparent …
And curling up onto the seashore near your feet …
And then receding back to the ocean …
Leaving behind a little sea foam …
A little lighter and fluffier than water …
In a line, all along the shore.

That sea foam reminds me of these waves of forgetfulness
that sometimes come rolling through my mind.

They are not pure and clear, like mental thoughts.
They are not joyful, like warm Pacific ocean waters.

They are more like the staleness
of what is not that …
Like the staleness of sea foam,
that stays on the shore
when the tide recedes into the ocean.

It is a part of the water … but it is an unusual part.
It is the part that gets left behind by the Flow.

So, I say, Beware the sea foam!
Take a dip in the ocean
instead.
