Dear Ones,

MILD SOLAR STORM TODAY. SURF IS UP!

Protonfall is 6,625.7 right now. The Planetary K (Kp) Index has been at level 5 for 12 hours out of the last 15-hour interval. A mild geostorm is in progress!

Image: “Estimated Planetary K index (3 hour data), Begin: 2021 Apr 15 000 UTC,” by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO, USA, public domain … DESCRIPTION: Four Red Bars (Kp Index level 5), amongst the most recent five bars, the other bar being yellow; which is to say, 12 hours of Kp Index at level 5, and 3 hours at level 4. A mild geostorm is in progress.

Solar Cycle 25 is ramping up, heading for the fireworks typical of Solar Maximums. I see online that the current Maximum is predicted to take place in the year 2025, only four years from now, as may be seen from the graph of the Solar Cycle 25 prediction curve below. Surf is up!

AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE DURING THE ‘RAMP UP’ TO THE NEW SOLAR MAXIMUM

The next four years I hope may offer great opportunities to experience unconditional love … the grandeur of a fully functional heart chakra, as was the case in the ‘ramp up’ years of Solar Cycle 24. I am really looking forward to it.

When the heart chakra is fully open … the Low Heart, the Mid-Heart, the High Heart, and the Hridaya (the hidden inmost heart) … then miracles can happen within and without our energy fields. The High Heart, associated as it is with the thymus gland, stimulates regeneration of our physical and subtle bodies.

The Low Heart: One of Two Wish-Fulfilling Trees?

The Low Heart, which I feel may be located at the solar plexus, has to do with manifestation of our heart-felt wishes in the world. I found a beautiful image of the Hrit Chakra by krsnajinana today, which I have adapted and named ‘Low Heart’. I feel the two … the Low Heart and the Hrit Chakra … may act in tandem as two ‘wish-fulfilling trees’, and so I have put a green tree in the Low Heart, very like the orange tree in the Hrit Chakra. Here is my depiction of the Low Heart …

Clagett, 17 April 2021, CC BY-SA 4.0 … CREDIT: Adapted from “Hrit Chakra, Containing the Wish-Fulfilling Tree,” by krsnajinana, 9 April 2010, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hrit.jpg … public domain. I adapted the colors in the original image for this reason: Located as it is between the heart chakra, which is often depicted as emerald green in color, and the navel point, which is often depicted as yellow in color, I felt it might be best to picture the Low Heart as a combination of these two colors. In addition, I removed the lotus petals, as 8 are depicted in the original image of Hrit Chakra. Traditionally, the sacral chakra is depicted as having 6 orange petals; and the navel point or third chakra old-style is depicted as having 10 yellow petals. Thus it seems very appropriate to me that the original image of the Hrit Chakra, with its 8 petals and its dark orange and deep yellow colors, might represent a Low Navel Point chakra, and might be located just between the sacral chakra and the navel point. I feel it might represent one of a pair of ‘wish fulfilling tree’ chakras … the Low Navel Point and the Low Heart … that, acting together, might manifest our wishes in third-dimensional reality … DESCRIPTION: A yellow ring, inside which is a white ring. Inside that, on a yellow background, is a green tree with five branches, each with leaves on it. I used these colors for this reason: Located as the Low Heart is … between the heart chakra, which is often depicted as emerald green in color, and the navel point, which is often depicted as yellow in color … I felt it might be best to picture the chakra as a combination of these two colors … COMMENT: The Low Heart, I feel, may be located at the solar plexus, just below the middle arch of the bottommost ribs. When the heart chakra is fully activated, as in years of Solar Cycle Maximum, then I feel the High Heart (which corresponds to the thymus gland) and the Low Heart are also fully functional. The former is associated with physical regeneration, and the latter I take to be associated with fulfillment of our heart-felt wishes in the physical realm …

Hrit Chakra by krsnajinana

Here is the Hrit Chakra, which I feel may represent the Low Navel Point, a very complicated chakra said to be connected to 72,000 nadis in the human energy field. I feel it may be located between the sacral chakra and the navel point, and may act in tandem with the Low Heart to create the miracle of manifestation of our deeply felt wishes in the physical realm …

(1) To Contact Sentient Life on Planets Jupiter, Mercury, and Neptune

I am hoping to be able to speak with delegations from the Council of Nine, the planets in our own Solar System, during this time. Having already met the Saturnians and the Martians during Solar Cycle 24, I am hoping to meet representatives from Jupiter, Mercury, and Neptune during our current solar cycle. I have an action plan to listen to the NASA recordings for those planets; I feel these recordings may bring me in touch with sentient beings on those planets, including beings of Light that may call those planets home. Here are representative recordings …

Perhaps you would like to join me in attempting contact with the beings of these planets, especially the members of the Council of Nine who are representatives of these planets?

(2) To Channel Messages of Light and Love from Our Star Brothers and Sisters

As well, at appropriate conjunctions of the stars, we may expect messages from our star brethren in other constellations … Alpha Centauri, Andromeda, Arcturus, Lyra, Mintaka, the Beings of Light of the Pleiades, and the Sirians, perhaps. Perhaps even we may make contact with Beings of Light from constellations that we have not yet heard from, as human beings. I am really looking forward to it, as I am sure many of you are.

WAYS TO RIDE THE WAVES OF INCOMING LIGHT WHILE AVOIDING ‘WIPEOUT’

Image: “2010 Mavericks Surfing Competition,” by Shalom Jacobovitz – SJ1_8558, from Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9511582 … CC BY-SA 2.0 … DESCRIPTION: “The image was taken from a boat. Here’s Shalom’s description of his experience: ‘The boat was very rocky. Many people got sea sick though. One guy (photog) never even got any pictures he was so sick.’”

Image: “2010 Mavericks Surfing Competition,” by Shalom Jacobovitz – SJ1_8558, from Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9511582 … CC BY-SA 2.0 …

DESCRIPTION: “The image was taken from a boat. Here’s Shalom’s description of his experience: ‘The boat was very rocky. Many people got sea sick though. One guy (photog) never even got any pictures he was so sick.’”

While experiencing unconditional love during the last solar cycle I had some encounters with antisocial personalities (sometimes termed ‘sociopaths’), whose hearts have malware that allows them to drain love from others (so they themselves can stay vital) but whose hearts cannot send love out.

I feel that ‘coming home’ (as Daniella Breen says) …

Link: “Daniella Breen: Coming Home,” on YouTube … https://www.youtube.com/user/Consciousnesscall ..

… or maintaining a stable energy field and ‘neutral mind’ (as I term it in my blogs) are ways to prevent damage to the heart portal when sociopathic (what I sometimes term ‘vampirical’) energy is nearby. Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) has two good meditations that I feem may be helpful to this end, Here is an easy meditation for neutral mind, which may help put a damper on a Lightworker’s inclination to participate, along with the Archangelic forces, in what is often termed  ‘Spiritual Warfare’ against ‘Territorial Spirits’ (i.e., demons or devils) …

Link: “Meditation for the Neutral Mind,” courtesy of YB Teachings, LLC, at Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) … https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/meditation/featured-meditations/meditation-neutral-mind ..

And here is quite a good, easy meditation for teacher burn-out, which I found helps stabilize my personal energy field when it is attacked by sociopathic or ‘vampiric’ energy …

Link: “Meditation for Burn-Out,” courtesy of YB Teachings, LLC, at Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) … https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/pranayam/meditation-burn-out ..

I recommend both of those meditations medias tools that may be used whenever the need arises.

During the last Solar Minimum that ‘vampirical’ danger stopped for me, thank goodness. It could be the danger only arises during the ‘ramp down’ that occurs after Solar Maximums like that which we will be experiencing a few years after the Solar Maximum predicted for the year 2025. From the Solar Cycle 25 predicted curve in the graph above, I estimate the danger zone for Lightworkers and healers might be from about the year 2028 to the year 2031.

I followed the solar cycle prediction charts for the last solar cycle … Solar Cycle 24 … and found that the real-life work of our Sun was not closely aligned with the predicted curve. So we will need to adjust the estimated span of years for the sociopathic ‘danger zone’ as our beautiful Sun rolls out its plans in our reality over the coming years.

ON OUR EXPERIENCE OF EXPANDED MULTIDIMENSIONALITY DURING SOLAR MAXIMUMS

The Chakras Allow Us to Adjust to and Perceive Different Dimensions

Here is an image showing the order of colors … what might be termed a ‘spectral array’ in the traditional seven chakras within the human body …

Image: “A Map of Chakras of the Human Body,” by mpan, 17 June 2016, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chakras_map.svg … CC0 1.0

Image: “A Map of Chakras of the Human Body,” by mpan, 17 June 2016, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chakras_map.svg … CC0 1.0

The changes in the colors have to do with the energetic ‘gears’ of the chakras within the Body of Light. The lowest chakra has a gear with ‘four teeth’ … spinning ‘petals’ of Light … which produce the astral color ‘red’. The next is the sacral chakra, with 6 ‘teeth’ or ‘petals’ … which produce the astral color ‘orange’. The next might be the Hrit Chakra (not in the traditional charts, but shown above, in this blog); that might have 8 ‘teeth’ or ‘petals’ and be of a color between orange and yellow. The latter is the color produced by the 10 ‘teeth’ or spinning ‘petals’ of LIght of the chakra traditionally termed the Navel Point, and so on.

It does occur to me that the traditional depiction of various numbers of teeth in the gears of the chakras may have to do with the speed of their spin rather than their physical appearance. For instance, it might have been thought, in ages past, that the faster an object spins, the more teeth it may appear to have, because of the way the human eye perceives moving objects.

The crown chakra is termed, traditionally, the ‘many-petalled lotus’. It might to be have so many petals one could hardly hope to count them. Or, it might be that it spins so fast it looks to the clairvoyant like a spinning top, all awhir with motion, so that its features are but a blur …

Video: “Schylling Silly Circus Tin Top 2006 Press and Spin Spinning Top,” by Texas Gal Treasures, 4 June 2016 .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roOlSFBbTmw ..

The speeding up of the energies of the body of Light as they pass through the ‘gears’ in the personal chakras, I feel, accommodate the lower-pulsating energies of physical earth … upon which we stand … to the Incoming Light from the stars. That Light bears messages from our friends on other planets in our own solar system, and also the messages from our star brethren in distant galaxies.

That is to say, each chakra represents a different dimension. By placing our Awareness on one or another of the chakras, we may experience the dimension it creates and represents within our energy field. In so doing we realize our potential as multidimensional beings.

The Incoming Light of a Solar Maximum Allows Us to Perceive Many More Dimensions, and to Receive Channeled Messages from Our Star Brethren

With the Incoming Light of the Solar Maximum our bodies of Light received … for a period of time during each 11-year solar cycle … the most possible very pure, higher dimensional Light … Light beyond the range of our human eyes and of our scientific instruments. Of course, this Light is always everywhere, but, I feel, it is more available to us humans, for transformation of our own energy fields and those of the Earth plane, during Solar Maximums.

During intervals of maximum Light, many more of us humans can clairly perceive that we are receiving gifts from the stars. We feel different. Our energy field is expanded, and the transpersonal chakric gears, through which our use Ascension skills and teachings, become available to the us and other people on Earth. Thus it is that, during Solar Maximums, our multidimensional capabilities, as Arisen or Awakened people … as New Humans … become greater and greater.

The Positive Aspects of the Great COVID Pandemic of 2020 May Serve Us Well in This, the Second Wave of Earth’s Ascension

The great COVID pandemic of the year 2020, which seems because of the news media to have wreaked great sorrow amongst humankind … and which is perceived by many as fraught with fear … might also be viewed in a different way. In God’s eyes, it might be seen to offer humankind a respite from weary toil, a chance to stay at home and concentrate on cherished projects for awhile, a chance to feel our hearts in the presence of family and close friends, and a chance to realign our values from the material to the spiritual realm.

From this standpoint the COVID epidemic might be just what humankind needs, to prepare each and every one of us … no exceptions! … for this, the Solar Cycle 25 Maximum, which is even today beginning to create the great symphony of Light that constitutes the next wave of Ascension.

The dimensional vibration of Earth is slowly arising during the Ascension process. Each new Solar Cycle in this, our post-Shift reality, will bring new gifts from the stars, new cosmic understandings, that will create for us New Life on New Earth, and a whole New Beginning for humankind.

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

Dear Ones,

PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN DOMESTICALLY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Last month the major United States news agencies came out with articles on the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department shutting down four major crime units as a result of the Defund the Police movement …

Link: “The County Continues to Defund Law Enforcement,” by Sheriff Alex Villanueva, 1 October 2020 … https://lasd.org/county-continues-to-defund-law-enforcement/ ..

One of the units to be shut down has to do with sexual abuse, including sexual and physical abuse of children. I gather that the COVID-19 pandemic may have something to do with this, as, from a pragmatic point of view, COVID restrictions prevent child abusers from seeking sexual relief amongst the children of families other than their own.

Rather, I feel it must be true that the ‘safer at home’ regulation may have caused an increase of sexual and physical abuse of children within the home. It must be that the function of society with regard to domestic violence is less one of criminal trial and more one of counseling, the intent being to keep the family together. Thus it may be difficult for law enforcement to take a firm line with regard to physical and sexual abuse of children while the children are ‘safe at home’ during the COVID-19 pandemic.

TAKEN TOGETHER, COVID-19 AND AIDS ARE RESULTING IN INCREASED MORTALITY FOR BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN

The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in mortality mainly amongst adults, especially seniors and those with serious medical conditions. It seems that young children are much less likely to die of COVID.

On the other hand, the concomitant AIDS epidemic results in greater mortality amongst the young. Adults with AIDS who are on Western medications are said to be able to live till their 70s, albeit they are unlikely to parent children who are born AIDS-free.

It seems to me that the gravity of the AIDS infected parent’s immune system impairment may be making it more difficult for them to survive AIDS infection. In addition, I feel it may be life-threatening for AIDS infected mothers to bear children to term. Thus the situation of preserving the life of AIDS infected parents is of concern.

HOW IS A LIGHTWORKER TO HOLD THE TRIBULATIONS THAT MANIFEST ON EARTH?

We Lightworkers are very opposed to savage treatment of children. We believe in human rights, and in human kindness, one to another. We feel that to walk in Christ’s footsteps is to bring the Light of Christ Consciousness to our planet, and that this spiritual practice will help uplift our Earth.

Yet so many people here on Earth are enmired in Darkness, in the very social ills that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department until now has helped to prevent, it can be a challenge to maintain a positive outlook despite the way things appear to be, from a 3D and 4D perspective.

In addition, as a Lightworker and a medical editor, I have found it a challenge to reconcile my understanding of the grave effects of these two pandemics with my understanding of Christ’s consciousness and the Ascension process here on Earth.

This is, I feel, on the one hand a time of Great Tribulation. On the other hand, we may envision this time as the Second Coming, and of the upliftment of the world to New Life on New Earth. Yet how may we hold these great sorrows visited upon humankind … these two pandemics, the one laying low, as it does, the sick and the elderly; and the other laying low our hope of tomorrow, the cherished children of our bosom?

HOW THE AIDS PANDEMIC MAY AFFECT SOCIAL VALUES ON NEW EARTH

It came to me this evening that the AIDS pandemic may be held by those of faith in a way quite different from the norm. In a certain Light, it may be discerned to be a gift from God to humankind, which will select for the survival of the New Human on New Earth. The New Humans, I feel, will respect their children and never sexually molest them. There will be no child trafficking. Young people will be chaste, and likely remain faithful to one partner, selected at puberty, for life.

Many of the social issues currently plaguing humankind will vanish from Earth because those who practice sexual molestation of or incest with their children will see the death of their children before child-bearing age. Thus their family lines will end, and the family lines that remain will be those that sexually respect their children.

As children become more scarce, parents will most likely be keeping a careful eye on their children … even more so than they do today … to prevent their children from being snatched up by child traffickers, in whose hands they will surely die of AIDS before childbearing age.

For post-pubertic youth with multiple sexual partners there will be a great number of schools with 100% AIDS children. As I understand it, AIDS is a disease so serious that it poses too great a risk for a woman to have a child. That the child would most likely have AIDS at birth, and then only live a few years, or at most only till just before puberty, means that teens with AIDS will not have children.

The same would apply to young women and men with AIDS and who are sex workers.

That is why I feel the New Human will have cultural values of respect for their children, strict prevention of child trafficking, chastity in teens, absence of sex work, and fidelity to one lifelong spouse. It is the childbearing ability and family lines of those who have different cultural values will be cut off, and their genes eliminated from the human gene pool.

AIDS AND AND CHANGING SOCIAL VALUES IN GEOGRAPHICALLY ISOLATED CULTURES AROUND THE GLOBE

I feel there will be geographically isolated cultures that may continue these social practices for some while because AIDS infection does not reach those areas. After the time lag caused by their geographical isolation, in a matter of a generation or so, the chance HIV infection will occur, and the more isolated regions will, I feel, begin to undergo the process of social value change outlined above.

That would be, in a way, similar to the course of COVID-19 infection in the United States, where we saw much more incidence in large urban areas nationwide, and what seemed to be the less populated states in the north central part of the United States were spared severe infection till the winter of 2020. But with AIDS, I feel, for very isolated cultures, the time lag might be as much as 20 or 25 years.

INVASIVE WESTERN MEDICAL PRACTICES MAY FALL OUT OF FAVOR AS PATIENTS SEEK TO AVOID INFECTION BY AIDS-BEARING SURGEONS

As well, I feel that there will be a turning away from invasive Western medical practices, to holistic and alternative medicine as a means to prevent transmission of AIDS from doctor to patient.

As more and more Western medical practitioners are infected with AIDS, I feel it likely patients will intuitively begin to avoid potential blood mingling Western medical practices such as inoculation by needle and surgery, as the possibility of their getting AIDS from the Western medical practitioners will begin to be perceived. Thus I feel it possible that, for the next 100 years, much progress will be made in noninvasive, holistic, alternative medical applications as alternatives to invasive Western medical practices.

THE OUTLOOK FOR AIDS RESILIENCE BY THE YEAR 2120

I hope that, in the long run, humankind may become more able to be healthy, sexually reproductive, and long-lived despite infection with AIDS. That may take perhaps a century, I feel.

In the meantime, as noted above, there may be a global shift to more compassionate and heart-centered sexual practices, and less invasive medical practices, in the interests of survival of family groups during the four or five childbearing generations that must likely take place before humankind adapts to AIDS as a virus easily tolerated by those of us in good health.

LIGHTWORKERS AND HEALERS CAN HOLD THE AIDS PANDEMIC IN A NEW LIGHT OF COMPASSION AND FAITH

We have before us a Soul learning experience of unprecedented magnitude. For those that are teachers of humankind, let us embrace this experience wholeheartedly. Let us offer solace as we may to those who are suffering, but stand in our own neutral, healing Light, knowing that, despite the suffering all around us, in a deeper sense, all is well.

God is love, is He not? How can it be that He offers us aught but what will uplift and inspire us, were we to see the passing show with His eyes, feel it with His heart, and know it with His wisdom?

For the Lightworker, for instance, this is a wonderful opportunity to rise beyond the aggressor-victim paradigm so oft enacted in 3D and 4D, and to begin to welcome the thought that God does all … even that which we perceive as Tribulation … for the benefit of our own Soul Wisdom.

When we feel dismay, let us say with confidence to ourselves: I will let God take care of everything! God will take care of everything!

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

Uplifting and Nurturing Humankind vs Acting Out of Subconscious Symbolism . by Alice B. Clagett

” … behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.” — Matthew 2:13 (KJV)

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a story about a subconscious metaphor and how it might be acted out both symbolically and in the physical realm.

The metaphor has to do with one-upmanship and capitalism. The emotional energy conveyed by the metaphor is the negative opposite of mothering, fathering, and nurturing, the qualities that sustain life on Earth.

During times of social unrest … such as that in which we find ourselves today … the energy described below flares up everywhere within society. It was so in the days of Caligula, whose reign was characterized by cruelty, sadism, and sexual perversion. And it is so today, here in America, as we face the challenge that the USSR faced in the late 1980s, as its republics (similar to our States) vied more and more with the central government.

At times such as this it is crucially important for each of us to align with the energies of mothering and nurturing, rather than with the powers of chaos and anarchy. In that way we can help our governments through the growing crisis.

On a more positive note, we Lightworkers feel that the current time is one of Ascension, and of the beginning of New Life on New Earth. Instead of dwelling on the momentary confusion of the changeup, we envision the vast power of the Incoming Light, the Light of Christ consciousness, to transform the dross of this world to a more humane social order, one that values and uplifts the lives of the unborn and the newly born, whether their fathers acknowledge and protect them or no.

In this age, children are imperiled by the very energies described below. Let us stand up for the children of today, and protect the weak and helpless from the snares of Satan. It is we workaday folk, we retired people, we children of God but a few years older, who are set to the task of protecting the newly born, just as did Saint Joseph, though to his knowledge, the child was not his own. He must have been the talk of the town, but he stood by his fiancee, the Virgin Mary, This act of courage saw the unfoldment of untold good, down through the centuries.

Let us stand by the example of Saint Joseph, and set the world on a new path of higher consciousness in the coming times.

For those who engage in the obverse, negative energies described below, let us pray that Mother Mary intercede for their Souls, that after death they may be saved from the fires of hell, which offer far more torment than that they may know in their earthly life.

This story is entirely fictional. There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have a story to tell you which illustrates subconscious symbolism … which has been a topic I have often talked about in years past … and how subconscious symbolism, especially in the form of metaphor … becomes a picture in the subconscious mind, that then may be acted out in real life, in one way or another.

First I would like to explain to you, this story is entirely fictional; but it is very helpful in understanding how the subconscious mind influences action in the world, through metaphor and symbolism.

In this story there is a person who imagines, for quite some years, that there are people speaking to him, on the psychic plane, through their own gut brains or subconscious minds. And the thing that they are muttering is a slang word … and it is off-color. It is three words. The first word is ‘F—‘. It is a profane word. And the next word is ‘you’ … and then ‘in the’ … and the next word is a kind of off-color word; it starts with a ‘b’ … ‘b—–‘. And the next word is ‘hole’.

I have talked about this metaphor priorly; it is an extremely potent metaphor in the English language right now, especially amongst the younger set. Sorry I cannot just speak it in one line because this is a general audience line and I just do not like to shock anyone.

Let’s say this person kept on hearing this phrase muttered over and over again. And then, at the end of a long time, they found out that there were some people of their acquaintance that had suddenly taken up rectal intercourse. Now rectal intercourse is a visualization and acting out, on the physical plane, of that very set of words that I just explained in an oblique manner to you.

So it could be that the group of people that were subconsciously chanting that, some of them, fell into the acting out because of the undercurrent of symbolic sound that was going on in their subconscious minds.

Then another thing happened in this fictional story, and that is: At the end of a certain length of time … some years … there was a person who passed on; they had had, let’s say, oodles of money. And then let’s just hypothesize that person may have been involved, in some manner, with this group of people that were doing the chant.

The person passed on, and then it was discovered that the estate had dwindled to a tiny fraction of the amount that it used to be. So all the heirs to the estate had been subjected … in a more symbolic manner … to this subconscious slang that was going on; they had been ‘f—- in the b—– hole’. That had happened to them, in a monetary sense.

And to other people it had apparently happened through acting out in the physical body.

If such a scene were to occur, it would be a powerful example of the influence of the subconscious mind, through symbolism and metaphor, on action in the world. So you can add this one to all the other stories about metaphor and acting out that I used to talk about in my blog.

I wish you all the most pleasant of days, and lots of discoveries of the subconscious, because the more we become aware of the subconscious mind, the less influenced we are to act out irrationally.

Have a wonderful day! I hope the air where you live is not at all as smoky as the air in the mountains here.

In love, light and joy
I Am of the Stars

Compendium: Heaven’s Door . Geostorms as Dimensional Portals . by Alice B. Clagett *

Published on 3 July 2020; updated

Dear Ones,

Here is a list of blogs offering my original insights on the effect of geostorms on our eyes and minds: on geostorm hallucinations as dimensional portals … portals to the alternate realities so often described, with eerie similarities, by mystics throughout history …

The gold background is typical of icons such as this, which was manufactured in the 12th century after a manuscript written by the 6th century monk John Climacus who based it on the biblical description of Jacob’s ladder. It depicts the ascent to Heaven by monks, some of whom fall and are dragged away by black demons,” by Florian Prischl, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Ladder_of_Divine_Ascent.jpg … public domain

For those dauntless adventurers who tread the paths of Light, I feel that geostorms may open the door to wondrous parallel universes. But those who fall to fear of all that is may find geostorms glom them to mass hallucinations of global conspiracies, Apocalyptic scenes, and hellworld scenarios.

The choice is ours, is it not? We may face the Unknown with eyes wide open and a fulsome heart. Or we may fall back into the maw of dread.

Why the Coronavirus Pandemic? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is being written at what is currently thought to be the day before the peak of the Coronavirus epidemic in Los Angeles (although we are not certain whether there may be another wave later on).

WHY THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?

The question is: Why the coronavirus pandemic? I have three possible answers …

Did Our Martian Bacterial Colonists Bioengineer COVID-19 to Counter the Threat of HIV / AIDS?

It could be that the Martian bacterial colonists of our colon came up with the virus as a way to address the threat that the HIV / AIDS virus poses to the viability of humankind …

Link: “Did Martian Bacteria Bioengineer All Life on Earth (Including Us)?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 3 December 2016; revised on 9 July 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6uD ..

Link: “On Asking Our Martian Bacterial Colonists to Help Heal Disease,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 25 January 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8gZ ..

Might COVID-19 Strengthen Our Immune Systems Against an As-Yet-Unknown Health Threat? 

It may also be that God provided this virus to build up our immune systems against another health threat not yet known to us on this timeline.

Might COVID-19 Be a Download of Light to Heal the Damage Done by Cosmic Rays to Our DNA During the Recent Extended Solar Minimum?

This is the explanation that makes the most sense to me, as it is the most positive: I feel that the symptoms labeled COVID-19 are, in actuality, downloads of Light to do with the initiation of Solar Cycle 25 in December 2019?

Link: “Solar Cycle 25,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle_25 ..

Earth’s atmosphere in the past few years has been chock full of cosmic rays because of the ever-decreasing solar activity since early 2014. That is nearly 6 years of greater and greater impact of cosmic rays on our DNA …

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Number Progression,” by NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_cycle_24_sunspot_number_progression_and_prediction.gif … public domain

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Number Progression,” by NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_cycle_24_sunspot_number_progression_and_prediction.gif … public domain

Cosmic rays can randomly alter our DNA, and not always for the better. Right now, at the cusp of the change from Solar Cycle 24 to the new Solar Cycle 25, our Ascension Teams may see the need for extensive repairs to our human DNA. In addition, new DNA is being activated because of the faster pulsating Light available in this new cycle of the Ascension process.

It seems to me that the health effects we are experiencing have to do with repairs and upgrades of our DNA as the new Solar Cycle begins. If we accept these downloads of Light in a positive way, with feelings of faith and hope in the future, then we will be able to go through the changeups with grace and ease. Along those lines, I heard just the other day that positive emotions help bolster the immune system …

Video: “DR BRUCE LIPTON – CORONAVIRUS, EPIGENETICS & IMMUNE SYSTEM – MOST DANGEROUS PART OF COVID-19 IS FEAR,” by London Real, 10 April 2020 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=242&v=nkQqxkf6heA&feature=emb_logo ..

I realize my understanding of COVID-19 flies in the face of accepted health understanding, but after all, is that not what Lightworkers do? We see Light where others may see Dark. We see God’s great Will at work in creation, where others may see our human limitations. We see the smiling face of humankind, where others may see masked automatons.

This is a time of New Beginning, and not the advent of Apocalypse. The coronavirus pandemic has taught people all over Earth the importance of community, of family, of working at home with our young children, the importance of healthy diet and of outdoor exercise, the saving grace of faith in God, the helpfulness of yoga and meditation, the unhealthful aspects of life in very large cities. Who would have thought such changes in human values might take place in such a short time?

Change can be fearful, or we can rise to the challenge. Because of the pandemic, we have a chance to take a good look at the values dear to us, at the lifestyle we choose to live, so that we may walk together into a New Tomorrow.

TURMERIC TO PURIFY THE BLOOD?

I wonder if the foods said in India to purify the blood might be helpful in getting through COVID-19? In India, turmeric is used in cooking quite a bit; they feel it cleanses the blood. Does the COVID-19 virus float around in the blood? If so, maybe turmeric would help get rid of it? I note there is quite a bit of turmeric in mustard, for instance.

I looked this up today in the book ..

Citation: “Foods for Health and Healing: Remedies and Recipes,” based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, edited by Gurubanda Singh Khalsa and Parmatma Singh Khalsa for the Kundalini Research Institute,, published by Spiritual Community and K.R.I. Publications, 1983 … See: “Chapter 10: Body Systems and Their Ailments,” the subsection: The Blood

I see there were quite a few more recommended blood purifiers there, including baked apple and cottage cheese, which sounds pretty tasty to me.

I remember this book fondly because I was Editorial Assistant for it, under my then spiritual name Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa. I still keep a copy handy on my cookbook shelf in the kitchen.

THREE-MINUTE MEDITATION TO ACHIEVE A COMPLETELY TRANQUIL MIND

I also thought of this meditation, because I, as well as many of my fellow empaths, are very sensitive to the waves of fear that have, in recent weeks, swept across Earth during the COVID-19 pandemic …

Link: “Meditation to Tranquilize the Mind,” originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on 28 February 1979, at Healthy, Happy Holy Organization … https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/health-and-healing/meditation-tranquilize-mind ..

This is one of the most effective meditations I know of to tranquilize the mind. I used it while teaching beginner kundalini yoga classes many years ago. Nearly instant peace of mind, wow!

MEDITATION CRISIS KIT: FREE DOWNLOAD

I have one other gift for you to reduce stress during the current crisis. This is the meditation “Crisis Kit” put out by Kundalini Research Institute. Here is the free download …

Link: “Kundalini Research Institute Crisis Kit,” copyright The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan … http://kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/docs/KRI-Crisis-Kit.pdf ..

I am familiar with all the meditations in the “Crisis Kit,” having practiced them myself and taught them to my kundalini yoga students in the 1980s. It is my hope you may find amongst them some that will be as helpful to you as I have found them to be.

CONCLUSION

Dear Ones, take heart during these times. I wish each of you good health and happiness, and the courage to face the stress of life with equanimity.

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

Dear Ones,

ARE CALIFORNIA HOUSING COSTS UNREALISTICALLY HIGH?

Apparently, California housing costs are the highest in America …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office, 17 March 2015 … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

This is odd, because people are less in need of housing in California than elsewhere in the nation, because of the mild climate here. Why are housing prices so high?

Could it be that the housing codes here unrealistic, considering the influx of homeless and migrant workers, (1) and the release of felons onto the community due to inadequate funds to keep them in prison? (2)

EFFECT OF LOS ANGELES WATER PRICES ON HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

Stopgap measures have been initiated to fund desperately needed Los Angeles programs, including skyrocketing water prices, and increases in property taxes for homeowners …

Link: “LA DWP, Other Utilities to Raise Water Rates Because of Drought,” by Mike Reicher, published 20 October 2015, updated … https://www.dailynews.com/2015/10/20/la-dwp-other-utilities-to-raise-water-rates-because-of-drought/ ..

Thus the price of owning a home … which is out of range for the many Californians … has become about twice as high in the last decade … There is the price of the mortgage, about equaled by the increased price of utilities and property taxes.

We cannot afford lawns any more. Many people are taking bucket showers rather than ‘real’ showers. In the streets, under the river overpasses and freeway bridges, on vacant lots and in the parks, the homeless cluster, disconsolate, often drunk on rotgut liquor, posting guards in turn to prevent violence upon their small groups, beyond any hope of shelter.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK

I would like to take a look at the longer-term effect of the stopgap measures that have been effected, so as to keep the Los Angeles city government running …

Apparently, higher housing prices will attract less jobs to California. This means that people will be less able to afford the homes they have. Those who rent will find home ownership out of reach. And those without homes will be unable to rent …

Link: “Sky-high rents and home prices are making it hard for Southern California businesses to attract workers,” by Andrew Khouri, 22 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-housing-costs-economy-20180222-story.html ..

WATER SUPPLY MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

Let’s look at water supply to Los Angeles …

Los Angeles is a desert town. Of itself, it is without means to provide water for its population. The water we have is imported from other places, and this may contribute to its cost.

In addition, there is the infrastructure that distributes water throughout Los Angeles. This, like the roads, is aging. Rather than providing a maintenance schedule, we are providing repairs when water mains break. My thought is, our city must not have the revenue for a preventive maintenance schedule for our water distribution system …

Link: “L.A.’s aging water pipes; a $1-billion dilemma,” by Ben Poston and Matt Steven, 16 February 2015 … http://graphics.latimes.com/la-aging-water-infrastructure/ ..

ROAD MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

How about road maintenance in Los Angeles? Here again, revenues are insufficient for a good road maintenance schedule …

Link: “Poorly maintained roads cost Southern California drivers $2,800 a year,” by Brenda Gazzar, Daily News, published on 17 August 2017; updated, in Los Angeles Daily News …  https://www.dailynews.com/2016/08/17/poorly-maintained-roads-cost-southern-california-drivers-2800-a-year/ ..

LAW ENFORCEMENT IN LOS ANGELES AND IN THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL RECREATION AREA

How about law enforcement? In the cities, I feel, police response is quite good. However, there is the area of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA), which is currently essentially a lawless zone. According to Wikipedia, the SMMNRA comprises 156,671 acres (63,403 ha) …

Map: SMMNRA … http://rimofthevalleycoalition.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Screen-Shot-2016-02-17-at-6.17.05-AM-1-800×445.jpg ..

I have checked, and there is one ranger assigned to this area. That is, effectively, the police patrol for the entire area.

Thus, lawlessness in the mountains is on the rise, especially in areas with natural water flow, and which are contiguous to populated areas. It reminds me a little of stories of the old days in Los Angeles, when cattle rustlers and horse thieves used to establish hidden outlaw strongholds in the mountains now termed the SMMNRA.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN LOS ANGELES

How about schools in Los Angeles? Our schools are becoming more and more a target for gun-wielding and drug dealing, making an education a risky business in Los Angeles.

SUMMARY REGARDING CITY OF LOS ANGELES PUBLIC SERVICES FUNDING

These four areas: utilities, roads, law enforcement, and education, are lacking revenues for maintenance. I feel these are the domain of government in our country … Where these are lacking, government is lacking. Here in Los Angeles, government is doing a slow tumble. It is unable to perform its basic functions.

I feel, though, that this is not the fault of government. Were revenues available here in Los Angeles, I feel certain government would be eager to do its job. But those revenues are unavailable. Why is this?

CALIFORNIA HOUSING: A TIME OF TRANSFORMATION

We here in Los Angeles are in a time of great import … a time of transformation to the New. This is not just the case here in Los Angeles. All of California, all American, and indeed, all the countries of Earth are in a time of transformation.

Transformation can feel like Apocalypse, or it can feel like a New Beginning. (3) We, the people of Los Angeles, will determine the outcome. Will we pull together and come up with innovative solutions to the housing crisis? Or will we go with the status quo … the slow tumble … the seemingly inevitable downward spiral?

I say, let us look, with a sense of adventure, a sense of the dawn of a new era for humankind, to innovative solutions. For instance …

Might Primitive Housing Techniques Be Useful?

How did the First Nations live, here in Southern California, in days not too long ago? They lived in reed, pole, palm frond, or bark huts, and they survived quite well this way …

Image: Diverse California Indian Dwellings …  http://www.rogueturtle.com/articles/images/nashelter1.jpg ..

How do people get by in Rio de Janeiro, where about a fourth of the population live below the poverty line, and the average per capita income is about $17,700 a year? Many live in very substandard housing, termed favelas ..

Image: Rio de Janeiro favela … https://media.istockphoto.com/photos/inside-a-favela-in-rio-de-janeiro-picture-id504416164 ..

How about in Tijuana, the country of origin of many of our current unhomed population? From what sort of environment are they fleeing, in order to seek a better life for themselves and their families?

Tijuana also has its slum housing, where people use building materials salvaged from landfills to build squatter homes on land with no utility service. Water trucks come round with bottles of water to sell for household use. Sanitation depends on a family’s ingenuity; pit toilets are the norm …

Image: House of cardboard in Tijuana … https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-news-photo/149207211#family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-a-ravine-picture-id149207211 ..

On Revising the Los Angeles County Housing Code

I feel we here in Los Angeles can do better than this for our people. But we must face facts.

The density of population in Los Angeles is too great for sustainable living. The population of Earth must be spread out more evenly, and ways must be found to live off the land, and become self-sustaining, and to house ourselves, in and of ourselves, humbly but efficiently, using local materials. For those that have the skills and strength of character to move out of the cities, and live a sustainable life: Why not consider taking this step?

On Building Additional High Density Housing in Los Angeles

For those that choose to remain here in Los Angeles, we must come to terms with the fact that the housing code in Los Angeles makes it impossible to attract jobs to the area. Where jobs are insufficient, the standard of living will decline. The Catch 22 is this: Where the standard of living has declined, jobs will not be attracted.

So then, what is the solution? There is a clue near the end of this article …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

The article suggests building more high density housing in California’s beach towns. I agree that this would help solve the problem. But in order to effect this solution, we must change the housing codes.

The Los Angeles Plan for Housing the Homeless Now Underway

Los Angeles has a plan for housing the homeless …

Link: “A plan to house L.A.’s homeless residents could transform parking lots across the city,” by Doug Smith, 9 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-parking-lots-housing-20180209-story.html ..

This plan is a laudable step in the right direction. Yet it is running into snags because of local fractiousness. People do not want the homeless as their neighbors.

The $2 Billion Bond to Help House California’s Homeless Held Up by Lawsuit

I see also that a $2 billion bond to help house California’s homeless, approved by California voters two years ago, is tied up in lawsuits regarding mental health care bills as yet unpaid …

Link: “2 billion to help house California’s homeless isn’t being spent — and no one knows when it will be,” by Liam Dillon, 1 March 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-homeless-housing-bond-stalled-20180301-story.html ..

The HUD Plan to Provide $2 Billion Nationwide for the Homeless

On the other hand, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a plan to provide $2 billion for the homeless, so this may to some degree ameliorate the homeless situation in California …

Link: “Ben Carson Announces $2 Billion for Homeless Programs Despite Trump’s Proposed Cuts to Housing Programs,” by Grace Guarnieri, 11 January 2018 … http://www.newsweek.com/ben-carson-billion-homeless-trump-housing-778976 ..

The Plan to House the Homeless in Guest Houses in Los Angeles County 

Los Angeles County is running a pilot program offering housing assistance for homeless housed in guest houses in property owners’ back yards …

Link: “L.A. County wants to help build guest houses in backyards — for homeless people,” by Gale Holland, 11 April 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-tiny-house-20180411-story.html ..

If successful, this might help reduce the population density in the City of Los Angeles, and help relieve concomitant issues to do with the homeless population in the City.

Employment Opportunity for the Skilled Homeless: Building That Guest Home in Los Angeles County? I would like to suggest, as well, the building of ‘Tiny Homes’ to benefit from this program, if it turns out to be approved. Perhaps this would boost employment in Los Angeles Country? Perhaps the homeless who have handyman skills might help with building additional guest homes there? Could it be that the State of California might offer financial incentives for such projects?

An Additional Idea; High Density Housing in Los Angeles County, with Busing to Jobs

If local resistance proves impossible to overcome, let us consider building high density housing in rural areas, in Los Angeles County, and providing buses to the nearest employment opportunities.

Repurpose Unprofitable Motels and Hotels as Housing for Homeless? For instance, old motels or hotels, that are proving economically not feasible, might be low-entry-cost ways for the Los Angeles County to house the homeless.

Well, that is all for now.

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