Dear Ones,

Here are references to teachings about the Afterlife from the School of Theosophy, along with comments by me to do with Ascension …

WHAT IS THE TRUTH ABOUT HEAVEN AND HELL?

The Theosophist William Walker Atkinson (aka Swami Panchadasi) describes how very different are the beliefs among the major religions of the world, regarding the afterlife. Some describe heaven, or hell, or purgatory, or limbo. Others speak of a great sleep, on passing, until the Day of Judgment at the end of the world …

Citation: “The Astral World: Its Scenes, Dwellers, and Phenomena,” by William Walker Atkinson, “Chapter VI. Disembodied Souls,”    … from the fifth full paragraph beginning “Let us move …” through the second sentence in the seventh paragraph, ending “… all the truth.”

Theosophists have a different, and I feel, in some instances, a far more hopeful and heart-settling set of teachings. They feel that Souls do sort, on the astral plane, after passing from physical form. But all Souls eventually slip into sleep in the Heaven Worlds of the Afterlife after their Astral Work in the Afterlife is done.

KAMALOKA: THE DESIRE WORLD OF THEOSOPHY

The Astral Work referred to here is that in which Souls, after passing on from physical incarnation, experience Kamaloka …  the ‘Desire World’ … as it is termed in the School of Theosophy. The work that is done is to purify the astral body, removing the dross of dissonant energies. This may take only a little time, or very much longer.

Grossness in the Astral Body. The type of experience a Soul has during this Astral interval depends on the relative grossness or refinement of its astral body … or as we say in an Ascension context, the distortions in its body of Light. These are referred to in Hindu texts as the samskaras, or by Judy Satori …  https://judysatori.com/ … as karmic miasmic patterning or morphogenetic field distortions.

Hell, Purgatory, and Limbo. In terms of the Christian faith, a person who has led a very sinful life on Earth, might well have experiences in Kamaloka that are like the Christian notion of Hell. A person who has led a reasonable life on Earth … though not particularly religious or spiritual … might experience what some Christian faiths term Purgatory. A child who passes on before the age of reason, or a person who has led a saintly or spiritual life, might experience only a little time in a state some Christian faiths term Limbo.

There is quite a good explanation of the astral afterlife, according to the School of Theosophy, here …

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 … “Chapter XIII: After-Death Life: Principles,” pp. 112-119.

The following two chapters are also quite informative. These are “Chapter XIV: The After-Death Life: Particulars,” pp. 120-135, and “Chapter XV: The After-Death Life: Special Cases,” pp. 136-143.

Here is a brief overview of the Soul’s afterlife stay in Kamaloka, the Desire World …

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 … “Chapter XXIII. Astral Death,” p 204, from paragraph 1, beginning “We have now …” through paragraph 4, ending: ” heaven-world.”

DEVACHAN: THE HEAVEN WORLDS ON THE HIGHER MENTAL PLANE

When, during the astral interval, the astral body has been purified of impure feelings and desires, a residue of desire, or kama, is left behind in Kamaloka. The higher ego (the true ‘I’) becomes free to pass on to a very different form of afterlife experience …  that of the Heaven Worlds, which, in Theosophy, are termed Devachan.

The Theosophists feel that all Souls eventually rise from the Hellworlds, Purgatory Worlds, or Limbo they were experiencing on the Astral Plane, to Devachan, the Heaven Worlds. Theirs, then is a more hopeful notion than that professed by many major religions.

In Devachan, those who passed on with desires to accomplish creative work (such as to create a great piece of music) or to exist in a paradise, or to be in a congregation of Souls of their own religion, or to accomplish intellectual or scientific work, can live out their dreams, till their desires to do these things fades. In addition, the work these Souls do in Devachan can be carried forward with them into a new incarnation, and so may aid the development of humankind.

At times, too, disembodied Souls in Devachan may be may offer their creative work as a gift to aspiring creative artists on the physical plane … They become the ‘creative muses’ for these Earth-bound artists.

There is a good, brief summary of the Devachan experience, from the Theosophical perspective, here …

Citation: “The Astral World: Its Scenes, Dwellers, and Phenomena,” by William Walker Atkinson, published 20 January 2000 by Book Tree … “Chapter IX: Higher Planes and Beyond,” paragraph 11, beginning “I wish here …” through paragraph 13, ending “…follow the gleam!”

Here is a more detailed description of Devachan, from the Theosophical perspective …

Citation: “The Mental Body,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, The Theosophical Publishing House Limited, London, Great Britain, 1927 … “Chapter XX: Devachan: Principles,” pp 171-184.

These chapters in the same book are also well worth reading: “Chapter XXI: Devachan: Length and Intensity,” pp. 185-190, and “Chapter XXII: Devachan: Further Particulars,” pp. 191-205.

The four chapters following these … pp. 206-220 … describe the four lower levels (there are 7 in all) of the heaven planes. These are numbered ‘backwards’ … The first and lowest level is termed the ‘seventh sub-plane’. The second, which is a little higher, is termed the ‘sixth sub-plane’ … and so on.

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

Dear Ones,

YESTERDAY’S SOLAR FILAMENT ACTIVITY AND THE SUBSEQUENT NOOSPHERIC COMMOTION

Last night was exceptionally commotional on the astral plane. I feel this may be due to the large filament burst and the Sun’s post-eruption turmoil. See

Video: “Earthquake, Eruption Track, Chemtrail Star | S0 News Nov.11.2017,” by SuspiciousObservers, 11 November 2017 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8daMdFXckxE … See timeframe 0.23 to 1.02

It appears there was concomitant roiling in the EMF of Earth (and most likely of all the planets in our Solar System), and that this roiling affected the noosphere. In human terms, it roiled our own EMF fields, bring up for view issues of Soul wounding stored in EMF glitches in our aura. Solar roiling, like the solar winds that buffet Earth, seldom resolve these issues, I feel.

THE HEALING ENERGIES OF OUR UNIVERSE

It feels to me that the great healing energies of our Sun, from the other suns of our galaxy, and incoming from nearby galaxies, have more to do with Earth-directed solar flares, typical Almanac events such as solstices, equinoxes, full and new moons, planetary alignments and conjunctions, and openings of lines of Light that connect with our Solar system from other celestial bodies.

ON SEEING THE TANGLES IN THE UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHT CLOUD OF THE WORLD

So then, last night did not feel like a healing in that way to me. It felt more like a roiling of the Dark, the unconscious thought cloud of the world. The benefit of this roiling motion is that it gives us a chance to notice the ‘dark tangles’ in the collective unconscious, and to formulate conscious plans to throw Light upon these tangles, and resolve them through collective humanitarian action, whether on the physical plane, or through contemplation and prayer.

ON SUSSING OUT HERETOFORE UNKNOWN ASTRAL AND MENTAL ENERGY TANGLES BY INTUITING  DARK ENERGY STRANDS IN THE DAILY NEWS

Along those lines, I had a intuitive flash last night, to do with the daily news … which points out problems and commotion on the physical plane … and a congruence with little known sources of commotion on the astral and mental plane.s

Basically, I feel, we can take any ongoing, commotional news-worthy event, and look for its parallel on the astral and mental planes. Not with regard to what’s known about the astral and mental planes, but rather with regard to what has been heretofore unknown about the these planes.

ON DISPLACED HUMAN AND MIGRANT HUMAN ENERGIES WORLDWIDE

Illegal Aliens

For instance, there is the issue of illegal aliens. According to a 2014 Pew Research Center study, there are about 11.1 million illegal persons in the United States today, living mostly in 20 large cities here …

Link: “20 U.S. metropolitan areas with the largest number of unauthorized immigrants.,” by Pew Research Center … http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/02/09/us-metro-areas-unauthorized-immigrants/ft_17-01-31_unauthorizedmetros_map/ ..

Refugees

Then there is the issue of refugees … people who have been forced to relocate beyond their country’s borders … and  ‘internally displaced persons’ … people who have been forced to relocate, but who remain within their country’s borders. By the end of 2015, there were about 65 million of these in the world today …

Link: “Refugees, Displaced People Surpass 60 Million For First Time, UNHCR Says,” by Camila Domonoske, 20 June 2016 … https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/06/20/482762237/refugees-displaced-people-surpass-60-million-for-first-time-unhcr-says ..

International Migrants

In addition, as of 2013, it looks like, there were 232 million international migrants in the world … people who were moving from one country to another, whether as refugees, as legal or illegal international migrant workers, or as legal or illegal immigrants.

Link: “On the move: 232 million migrants in the world,” by The Guardian, copyright 2016 …  https://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2013/sep/11/on-the-move-232-million-migrants-in-the-world ..

Link: “International Labour Standards on Migrant workers,” by the International Labour Organization … http://www.ilo.org/global/standards/subjects-covered-by-international-labour-standards/migrant-workers/lang–en/index.htm ..

Displaced, Out-of-Place, and Migrant Peoples: 3.3% of the World Population

Thus, of the 7.6 billion people in the world today, there is a ‘unsettled world’ of displaced, out-of-place, or migrant peoples numbering roughly 250 million … which would be about 3.3 percent of the world population.

On the noospheric plane, the energies are of unsettled or sometimes inappropriate place or location of peoples in the world. Those energies, I feel, were sparked to greater noospheric movement by last night’s solar input to Earth.

There was underscoring of the need for humanitarian outreach to the displaced peoples of the world, and to those whose lot might be bettered by corporate philanthropic gestures.

THE DECLINING GROWTH RATE IN WORLD POPULATION

On the bright side, I see that the world population growth is predicted to decline to zero by the end of this century. See …

Link: “World Population Growth,” by Max Roser, Hannah Ritchie, and Esteban Ortiz-Ospina, published in 2013; most recent substantial revision in May 2019 … https://ourworldindata.org/world-population-growth/ ..

A PLEA TO EARTH PEOPLES TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF HUMANITARIAN CARE WORLDWIDE

I ask heads of nations, heads of philanthropic organizations, religious social work groups, and heads of global corporations to expand beyond the current envelope of humanitarian care, into a new arena of humanitarian endeavor.

Let each of us Lightworkers, individually, do what we can to propose solutions to unhappiness in the world today, and to lift up the world through prayer, positive visualization, and peaceful contemplation.

MASSES OF DISPLACED OR OUT-OF-PLACE BEINGS ON ASTRAL AND MENTAL PLANES

On the astral and mental planes there are beings, non-human, that have no physical form, that mirror or reflect, cumulatively add to, or perhaps even mainly cause the displaced energies on the human physical plane. There may be, I intuit, large masses of these astral and/or mental beings, whose energies are ill suited to those of ascending Earth.

ON THE RELOCATION OF ASTRAL / MENTAL BEINGS NOW IN PROGRESS

These ‘out-of-place” beings need to be transported to new locations in the Universe. They may have no Ascension teams with which our own personal Ascension teams may communicate. Nevertheless, we can be certain there are forces in the Universe … such as, for instance, the Elohim, the Powers and Principalities, the Thrones and Dominions, and the like … which stand ready to relocate those beings to off-world places with which their energies resonate.

This off-world transport apparently is, I feel, now in underway, through the efforts of beings on the planes higher than the physical, astral, or mental; beings of the fifth and higher dimensions.

Thus I recommend this prayer, that I have begun to say, which addresses beings of all manner, whether in physical form, or in astral and/or mental form …

Thoughts on the Nature of Reality . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This physical reality is not truely true. No.

It seems real to us, because of the input we receive from our senses. But close examination of the writings of the sages of many world religions will reveal the illusory nature of our sensory input.

I also feel this to be true. I feel that each human being is experiencing his or her own personal ‘hologram’ or ‘hologrammatic display’ … in the form of sensory input.

Imagine a droplet of water hanging from a twig on a warm spring day. If you look closely, you will see, reflected on the surface of the droplet, all the world. This reflection of the world is like the input of our senses, inside our personal hologram. It seems to be ‘the world around us’. The hologrammatic display is just a viewing program created by our own ability to co-create reality, in synchronous, blessed manifestation with the Will of God.

CO-CREATIVE HOLOGRAMMATIC DISPLAYS

Sometimes our ‘viewing program’ … what we take to be ‘the world’ … is in sync with that of other Souls. In this case we are fractalizing together … co-creating contiguous, interactive hologrammatic displays, through alignment (or in some cases some slight degree of misalignment or disharmony) with the Will of God.

CAUSAL REALITY

There are many other Souls, and many other hologrammatic displays, in the Universe. Sometimes we ourselves appear to manifest in other holograms. This manifestation can take place on one of our ‘Awareness timelines’, in which case an interactive program will be viewed. This program, through the give and take of free will of each Soul involved, will allow us to fall further into the dream, or illusion of third- and fourth-dimensional ‘reality’, which is the Duality Play, as the interactive program we then view will appear to be organized round the concept of cause and effect rather than synchronicity. This will have to do with one of the other Souls imagining they are doing something to us either physically or mentally, at the same moment as our hologram reflects the movie of such an action. And vice versa.

PLACEMARKER IMAGES

Other programs may be running for other Souls’ schooling in Wisdom, and these may involve ‘placemarker’ interactive images of our physical selves, which we have agreed to place in their holograms, but which hold no aspect of our own personal Awareness.

Families sometimes interact with these ‘placemarker’ images, which appear to them to be a child or sibling, but in fact are only their own notion of a child or sibling, an image placed in their hologram so that they may conduct a karmic experiment and gain Soul wisdom. Our presence as a placemarker image in another person’s timeline is termed one of our ‘placemarker timelines’.

LAYERS OF REALITY: OUR HIGHER SELVES

Now, if you kindly would, once more imagine a droplet of water hanging from a twig, and reflecting the bright light of the Sun, which on the higher planes is the Light of God manifesting the many ‘layers’ of reality. There are many Suns bringing new life to Earth, and sustaining each being here in the many dimensions available to us.

I have heard, for instance, that because of the Incoming Photonic Light, we humans are now capable of experiencing 72 dimensions. If this is true, then by deduction it must also be true that there are 72 dimensions of our solar system’s Sun or Solar Logos …

As it says in the Bible, “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”  –John 8:12 (KJV, public domain)

My understanding is that this light of the World, of which Christ speaks, is what is also termed the Solar Logos. For some, Christ, the Light of the world, is the Solar Logos. See LInk: “The Solar Logos,” in “Logos Talk” … http://www.bizint.com/stoa_del_sol/logostalk/solar.html ..

So the water droplet, the hologram that we experience as our physical reality, has many layers, of lesser and lesser density, that enfold it and permeate it throughout. There is a depiction reminiscent of this on the cover of one of the editions of Arthur E. Powell’s compilation “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena” …

Image: Silhouette of a man, with an oval golden energy field around him. The energy field is nested in three layers of magenta energy, the deepest magenta layer being the outer layer. All the layers form a ‘U’ or ‘V’ shape, as if they were bending down from the heavens, bearing the man like a droplet of precious water, and setting him down on Earth. At the top of the image is a great funnel of golden Light, which touches the top of the man’s head … http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFgxNDMw/$(KGrHqRHJEMFBsReLWdCBQlumTP+0w~~60_35.JPG ..

In this depiction, the golden ‘egg’ with the human figure in it would be the hologram and the perceived physical body of a person. Surrounding and permeating this hologram are many other dimensions (not just a few as in the picture, but actually 72 layers of energy).

These surrounding, magenta layers are what is known in Advaita (the nondual path) as our higher selves. The yellow line that comes out the top of the head in the picture, is the ‘hara line’, the ‘central vertical power current’ or ‘silver cord’ that connects a person with the Solar Logos, the Solar Aspect, a portion of which is diagrammatically depicted at the top of the picture.

In the Age of Darkness just past, most of humankind was unable to sense all but the densest Self, that being the physical body. The exception to this were the Ascended Masters, who through rigorous spiritual discipline were able to bring their Awareness to their existence in the fourth dimension, the astral plane. In the case of Christ, which is very unusual, his Awareness rose to the fifth dimension, the Mental Plane, which is the higher self known as Christ Consciousness.

In this new Age of Light, while in physical form we will first be restored to Awareness of our astral body (4th dimension), then to Awareness of Christ consciousness (5th dimension), and then if we wish, to our higher selves and Higher Dimensions.

This is a reversible process; we need not lose physical form to rise to Christ consciousness. We can always return to Awareness of the physical body, the hologrammatic display, and the great duality play. But the more we experience our higher selves, the more clear it will become that the hologram is only an illusion skillfully crafted by the Solar Logos for our Soul learning. How great is God for devising this grand plan! How happy I am to participate in it!

THE HUMAN-EARTH-SUN MEDITATION

When we do the “Human-Earth-Sun” meditation described here …

Link: “Geostorms, Weather, Human Emotions . EMF Meditation,” by Alice B. Clagett, published 20 December 2015; revised on 24 May 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-4SL .. See: HUMAN-EARTH-SUN EMF MEDITATION, Channeled by Alice B. Clagett

… and widely known elsewhere, we visualize the Solar Logos proceeding in its many aspects from the Sun of our solar system, in a vertical line through all our higher selves or dimensions, through the top of our head, then through the vertical center of our bodies, through the soles of our feet, and on down to the very center of our Earth, which is also composed of 72 dimensions.

This meditation aligns our physical expression with All that we are, and with All that is.

OTHER METHODS OF INTEGRATING THE HIGHER SELVES

We can take a shortcut that has the same effect as the “Human-Earth-Sun” visualization by simply aligning ourselves with God or Christ. One way is to use this mantra either at the 8th chakra (above the head) or in the 4th chakra (the heart chakra) …

“The Great Invocation” by Djwhal Khul 

Or … this is my favorite … we can recite “The Great Invocation” by Djwhal Khul …

Link: “The Great Invocation,” by Djwhal Khul, through Alice Bailey, in Theosophy Wiki … https://theosophy.wiki/en/Great_Invocation ..

Here I have channeled the prayer …

Video: “The Great Invocation” . by Djwhal Khul . Channeled by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 19 November 2014 … https://youtu.be/IrE4QJg_Ai0 ..

Djwhal Khul’s spiritual teachings were channeled by Alice Bailey. His writings have much in common with the School of Theosophy. Alice Bailey, I hear, affectionately referred to him as “The Tibetan.”

In love, light and joy,
