Dear Ones,

This is about the sense of separateness from Source … individuality, anguish. And about letting go, acceptance, nonjudgment, freedom. With some asides on the maturation of nations …

There is an edited Summary after the video …



Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Anguish Like Sunlight, in the Noonday Sky, Glinting Off Mica in a Basalt Rock

Yesterday I ran across two people out in the desert: A man and a woman. And I noticed in them a quality that I have not seen before: There was a certain sharpness there. It was like Light from the noonday Sun, glinting off shards of mica in a basalt rock … A sharpness … It was like a longing of the Soul to remember that it is not separate. It was like a hardness of individuality and personality. It was an intense pain there.

And at first, my heart tightened up, with the anguish of their Soul expression. And then I remembered a talk by Mooji … https://mooji.org/ … about overcoming the world, that I had listened to that morning.

On Appreciating the Diversity of Soul Choices We Humans Make

To paraphrase: Mooji talked about how … in this world of perception and sensation … we experience all kinds of energies. And it is good to just notice them and say: Ah! Here is the flavor of that energy! Here is the taste of energy, different from the last one that I experienced. Like that … And just notice them, and let them go …

Rather than to step into the feeling of someone else and say: Oh my God, I wish I could change this suffering and this agony!  … it is better to say: Here is a Soul … a unique expression of the Divine … that has chosen to experience this energy at this moment. Like that … And appreciate the diversity of energies that we sense, here in the third dimension.

The Moment When We First Sense That We Are Free

On my way leaving from this place [the hotel where I stayed] today, I was overhearing two young military people talking. They had just gotten back from a tour of active duty, according to the lady downstairs. And so, there was exhilaration … happiness. He was saying (to paraphrase): What I love, is that moment when people first sense that they are free. 

And I have to say, I love that moment too. I love that moment when I sense that I am free to notice everything, without following along into the flow of that thing; but to be ready for the very next moment of Awareness … without thought … without consideration. Is that not true freedom?

Reflections on Fighting for Freedom

Reflections on what the young man said: And on the other hand, when you think about it: Can we fight for freedom … the freedom of other people? Can we fight for freedom, and make them have that choice?

Or, would it be better to allow each culture to evolve, in an organic way … to express itself as a flowering of personal choice and freedom, when the time is right? Is that not true freedom: That we should decide, for ourselves, how our own nation should be? …

  • Whether we unconsciously surrender our power to those of our leadership,
  • Or whether we, as a people, decide that the power is ours, and that our leaders represent us faithfully, and carry out our wishes …

This is the evolution of the Soul, through the national culture. You know?

Can we fight for Peace? Can we truly fight for Peace? Is that a true thought? Or is that a mental filter?

How can the resonance of Aggression aid the resonance of Peace? Was Gandhi right when he felt that simply being peaceful was the way to increase Peace in the world; simply being that Peace?

And if we, as a people, if we as Americans were to be that freedom, that freedom of choice, that freedom from societal expectations; the freedom to express ourselves in our own lives, and to follow our hearts … Would that not be a shining Light for the whole world?

Everyone has their own ideas! … That is freedom too.

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

Our Demon Armies, the Power of Discrimination, and the Experience of Non-Duality . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 9 January 2015

Dear Ones,


See the passage beginning “Instead of trying …” by Matt Kahn, at https://www.facebook.com/mattkahn/photos/a.172255239572822.33440.172253322906347/424822657649411/ .. date 14 October 2014

Matt Kahn is so great! His message here reminded me of a teleseminar with Peggy Black the other day (1), where she said something like: Instead of judging yourself when your heart feels closed, just notice how safe it makes you feel. Then when your heart is open, notice how THAT feels. (2)


Reminds me of a Buddhist text on the mental faculty of Discrimination, the full text of which is at the bottom of this page:

Link: “The Dharma Essentials for Cultivating Stopping and Contemplation,” by the Swei Dynasty Shramana Chih-i of T’ien-t’ai Mountain’s Dhyana Cultivation Monastery, translated into English by Dharmamitra (Taisho Tripitaka 1915),  http://www.fodian.net/world/1915_09.html … the section starting “If one engages …” (3)

To paraphrase this short section, if we cast the searchlight of discrimination on our recollections, then this is the ‘demon net’ … but sitting still, and ceasing to discriminate, is the mark of the Dharma [what the Sikhs define as ‘the path of righteousness’].


Amongst the astral stories now circulating in the clair realm, the ‘searchlight of discrimination’ might also refer to the recurring video clips circulating through the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World. Terms like “You are a homosexual,” “You floor me,” “You have no personality,” “Love on the internet is not for me,” “We have no relationship,” and with regard to all the world religions and their beliefs, the strident assertion that the next guy’s religious beliefs are not true.


The thing about all these worldwide samskaras or ‘malspeak’ is that they unconsciously perpetuate the notion that I and other are two separate things. That anything different from my beliefs is false … when we all know, in our hearts, that beliefs are a mere mental sketch of the underlying Reality of All that Is. This underlying Reality is but One, not dual. There is One fabric of our Universe, One Truth, One experience of supreme joy, unconditional love, universal peace. All is One.

In our realization of this Oneness, the power of Discrimination can help or hinder. Swami Jnaneshvara (‘Swamij’) has an explanation from the writings of Patanjali; see …

LInk: “Yoga Sutras 1.5-1.11: Un-Coloring Your Thoughts,” by Swami Jnaneshvara … http://swamij.com/yoga-sutras-10511.htm… the section labeled “Five kinds of interfering thoughts”

Here is a paraphrase of this short section: There are five kinds of thought: knowing (whether our knowledge be correct or incorrect), imagining, the deep state of sleep, and memory. Each of these prevents us from realizing the Self. The neutral witness is not attached to these thoughts. Recognizing each, he cultivates only this one: correct knowing.

So, using the power of Discrimination to cultivate correct knowing is A-Ok, from the perspective of Advaita.


For more on the faculty of Discrimination, see …

LInk: “A Treatise on the Paramis: From the Commentary to the Cariyapitaka,” by Acariya Dhammapala, translated from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi, copyright 2005 … http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/bodhi/wheel409.html ..

  • See the section on defilement of noble qualities … search term: (vii) What is their defilement (sa”nkilesa)?
  • See also the section on cleansing of noble qualities … search the term: (viii) What is their cleansing (vodaana)?

So, on the way to purity of beingness, there are many sorts of discrimination that must be set aside so as to move into the realm of Right Thinking.


Buddhist texts speak of our ‘Demon Armies.’ This is not just a colorful descriptive term; in fact, it’s an obnoxious reality in the lower planes of the dreamtime realm (the fourth dimension).

Image: “Mara failing to tempt Buddha from attaining Enlightenment and also failing to capture the Golden Throne as well. From a wall painting at a monastery in Penang, Malaysia,” by Hintha, 20 December 2010 … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mara_demon_nat_and_Buddha.JPG ..

What with the Awakening and the incredible quality of the new Incoming Light, these days more and more folks are awakening to the wibbly-wobbly reality of the dreamtime realm, while they are still anchored in physical form here on Earth.

So it is good to consider the causes of our association with the Demon Armies, and to learn how we can disengage from them.


Please see … Link: “Chapter 8: Recognizing the Work of Demons,” from “The Dharma Essentials for Cultivating Stopping and Contemplation,” by the Swei Dynasty Shramana Chih-i of T’ien-t’ai Mountain’s Dhyana Cultivation Monastery, translated into English by Dharmamitra (Taisho Tripitaka 1915) …  http://www.fodian.net/world/1915_09.html  (3) … Especially …

  • The section beginning: “Desire is the foremost …” and the following three sections, ending “… two [different] suchnesses.”


The non-dual state (5) arrived at when we master the Discriminative Faculty is beautifully expressed in the Mul Mantra of the Sikhs. This state of beingness is not merely the domain of the Ascended Masters, but the birthright of all humankind. In this video, Snatam Kaur chants the Mul Mantra …

Link: “Mul Mantra,” by Snatam Kaur, from the album “Anand Bliss,” copyright 2006, Spirit Voyage Records … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaaP-hrUDFI ..

Which reminds me of what Mooji said in his video on Christ Consciousness; to paraphrase: Christ is not a person, and not a man. Rather, his is a energy that is me, and is you. Here is the video …

Link: “Christ Consciousness,” by Moojiji, 6 January 2015 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6nUnmSgmqI ..

So what’s to judge? What’s to call good or bad? All that Is, Is That. Each of us is That.

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

(2) About that, Gerardo Zamora wrote me on Facebook recently:

“I have been paying attention to how my heart opens and closes, open and closes…I find it so interesting when is open I feel so free, when it closes I feel I am protected…but of what? thx”

To which I responded (best guess): “Hi, Gerardo, Thanks for this interesting question, it really made me think! I’ve been paying attention the same way, and have been getting the same feeling…. When you ask that question, did you mean protected from what? Like, what causes it to close? I think maybe it’s that, either in this lifetime or in past lifetimes, we’ve learned to identify certain stimuli …. be they physical sensations or clair sensations … as dangerous.

“For instance, maybe our heart reacted to a certain stimulus by closing tight at a moment of great danger … say, when a sabre-toothed tiger attacked. Or when we met a fierce opponent in a war. Or in this lifetime, when something very threatening happened. Or like that.

“So now we’re carrying what they call ‘Soul wounding’ there. Which means, the same or similar stimuli will automatically cause our heart chakra to close. So for me, my practice right now is, as you said, to watch my heart opening and closing. And then to become aware of the stimuli that cause it to close. The theory being, that the awareness itself will break the chain of automatic reactions, and after a while, my heart will be more often open.”

Magnetic Repulsion and Telepathic Avoidance . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 15 August 2014; revised on 20 May 2020

Dear Ones,

I have heard many folks, including Matt Kahn … “True Divine Nature” …  http://www.truedivinenature.com/ … mentioning the importance of compassion, forgiveness, and nonjudgment in our dealings with other people these days. Why is that? People in the telepathic world can be pretty rude … insensitive … even cruel. Two examples …

If a group of people concentrate on sexual desire in their second chakra, and visualize a person of the opposite sex, it can feel to that person like they are being attacked sexually.

If a group of people concentrate on the emotion of hatred in their hearts, and visualize another person, it can feel to that person like they are being subjected to a ‘hate crime’ … an attack of hatred.

These are two examples among many … What to do? How can we feel compassion, forgiveness, and nonjudgment when our own emotional body is in an uproar over some negative emotion such as fear?

Our Souls have been wounded through many incarnations of service on Earth. We are here in this lifetime to heal the wounds in our Souls, reunite our Soul fragments, reunite our fractals, and reunite our many dimensional aspects … In short, the purpose for which we are here on Earth is to reunite with the greatness of our Souls, to become One with the All.

Imagine a mirror made of silver … like the mirrors many years ago, before mankind had the ability to work with steel. Imagine this mirror has been cracked into many pieces, and these pieces are darkened with silver ‘tarnish’ … the dark stuff that can be removed from silver with silver polish.

Our Souls are like these silver mirrors, waiting to be made whole again. The ‘tarnish’ on our silver is programming installed by the Dark, programming written in runes of red or black, that tarnishes the pure, shining brightness of our true Souls. (1)

It is going to be our job to polish off this tarnish, to make our Mirrors of the Divine whole again.

Meantime, as the Light comes in, builds up, and polishes us up … Here we are in 3D and 4D. In these dimensions, darkness leaps from Soul to Soul, through the ‘cracks’ in our Soul fragments, and through the wounding in our Souls. Darkness could never stand up to the purity of our whole, polished Souls. But right now, the tarnish on our wounded Souls acts as a lubricant for the Dark, which can slip in.

Image: “Polishing a tarnished silver platter,” http://gaukartifact.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/clean-polish-silver-1.8-800×800.jpeg ..

The good thing is, though Darkness leaps from Soul to Soul, it never stays any particular place for long … at least not in my experience, except in cases where the human brain has been deeply injured through drug use or trauma. Mostly, it slips right through, causing what is often termed a ‘Dark Attack’, and then flies onward to some other ‘enticing’ situation.

Ipso ergo, we have a fluid dynamic of light versus dark, that can be influenced through sound … sound being a tool that humans use to ‘tune up’ their Soul fields … as, for instance, in the case of wind chimes, singing bowl therapy, chanting of sacred mantras, singing of hymns, and so on. This ‘tune up’ work is Soul healing.

In the heat of a ‘Dark Attack’ Soul healing may not be as immediately effective as necessary (although I do often find them to be immediately effective).

Image two magnets. Each has a plus pole at one end (red) and a minus pole at the other end (blue). As we all know from practical experience, when the negative pole of a magnet is aligned with the positive pole of another magnet, the two magnets cling together through ‘magnetic attraction’. When the negative poles of two magnets touch, we can feel a force pushing the two magnets apart … in other words, ‘magnetic repulsion’ occurs. Here is a typical diagram:

Link: “Unlike poles attract; like poles repel” … http://www.rfcafe.com/references/electrical/NEETS-Modules/images/magnetic-flux-lines.gif ..

Darkness is attracted to us in the way of ‘magnetic attraction.’ It flows through the ‘aggressor’ tarnish of one person’s soul, leaping out to the ‘victim’ tarnish of another person’s soul. It gathers ‘umph’ … power and speed … as it aggregates. And, like energy signatures attract. So, waves of ‘aggressor’ energy from crowds of humans combine and twine together, gathering ‘umph’ as they are automatically attracted to the ‘victim’ energy of other humans.

This twining and combining action is true of any kind of energy. It is true of the many ‘flavors’ of love energy and light energy as well as of the ‘darker’ energies. But because the darker energies are clearing out of people’s soul fields right now, there are the energies with which many of us are dealing.

How can those of us with ‘victim’ wounding avoid the incoming ‘aggressor’ energies? Well, there are ways. First, back to the admonition of many Lightworkers (mentioned above) regarding the importance of compassion, forgiveness and nonjudgment (both of ourselves and others).

Basically, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of the folks who are sending out the aggressor telepathic energies. Here is how I relate to this …

I hear incoming negative telepathic energies of all sorts. I used to feel bad about it. I used to ‘blame’ the senders, try to ‘fix’ them, try to admonish them, and so on. Did this work? NO, not at all. In general, it just made matters much worse, negativity much more furious, like a telepathic tape loop building ups speed nanosecond by nanosecond…

Then I realized that I was often hearing the negative subconscious, ‘gut brain’ messages of other people. Then I realized that what they were thinking in their conscious, cerebral brains was the exact opposite. In other words, because of the nature of duality, their heads were creating a positive, socially acceptable emotion-thought, while their gut-brains were creating the exact opposite, socially unacceptable emotion-thought. Surprise, surprise!

Take, for example, the topic of sexuality. Time after time I had been bothered by rising waves of other people’s telepathic desire. Especially on Friday and Saturday nights, when many folks go out boogying. I am not a boogier, I am a calm sort of person. and this weekly ‘desire’ energy felt foreign to me, as if it were being forced upon me.

Now, the cerebral telepathic feedback I had been getting from other telepaths was mind-boggling. They felt I was sending them endless waves of unwanted desire. Go figure!, I thought! Who could be so wrong? !

Just last week I got the great ah-hah! Perhaps, because of my ideal of faithfulness between a man and woman who are in relationship, my own cerebral self is suppressing the messages of chakra number two. I may be just like the folks I hear and find offensive. Unbeknownst to my cerebral brain, my gut brain may be doing the exact same thing. Which is why I am receiving these messages….

Let’s go back to the pictures of the two magnets …

Image: “Unlike poles attract; like poles repel” … http://www.rfcafe.com/references/electrical/NEETS-Modules/images/magnetic-flux-lines.gif ..

In the image on the left, imagine that the blue parts of the magnets are the cerebral brains of two ‘civilized’ people. They are both negatively charged on the notion of displaying sexual behavior. Blue = negative ‘thinking’ brain.

Quite frequently, the cerebral brains of these two people are not getting in touch telepathically. This is because they are, at the moment, very much occupied with negative emotion-thoughts. They are both negatively charged, and they are magnetically repulsive.

Imagine that the red parts of the magnets are the gut brains of two ‘civilized’ people. Here we have repressed (that is, under a lot of psychic pressure) positive notions about just how great sex is. The gut brain wants sex, it needs sex, it lives and breathes sex. All of this taking place quite frequently without us knowing about it, on a conscious level….

As we were discussing before, negative energy signatures are attracted to positive energy signatures. So, as in the picture of the magnets on the left, one person’s negative (blue) cerebral notions about sex seek out the next person’s positive (red) subconscious notions about sex. This is what is happening in the current telepathic environment.

I am aware of the next person’s subconscious sexual urges (much to their dismay!). They are aware of my subconscious sexual urges (much to my dismay!). Neither one of us knows about our own subconscious urges because … natch … they are subconscious.

Same goes for rage and fear. Subconscious (gut brain) rage in one person seeks out subconscious fear in another person (as per the aggressor-victim energy flow discussed above). Yet in our conscious minds, we will have nothing to do with these ‘primitive’, socially unacceptable emotions.

So, my ‘blue’ cerebral mind energy loves to hate the next guy’s ‘red’ gut-brain rage, of which it is aware. Yet the gut-rage person knows nothing of this emotion. In their cerebral minds and in their consciously expressed personalities, they are mild-mannered and sweet.

That is why the admonition to be compassionate, forgiving, and nonjudgmental makes sense. Because, whatever we encounter from others in the way of primate, primitive telepathic emotions, is actually a reflection of our own repressed, but very actively telepathically talking, gut brains.

The negative telepathic stuff we hear from others points us in the direction of our own Soul healing, the unification of the thinking mind with the gut brain, where we become One with the All.

In that context, each person’s energy flow would be more like the right-hand side of the picture above, where the flow of each magnet’s blue part (representing our thinking minds) circulates smoothly through the red part (representing our gut brains). As you can see from the picture, the result is the torus-shaped energy flow characteristic of the activated heart chakra.

But so meantime, while we are in the Soul healing process, incoming dark telepathic energies from the subconscious minds of others can get to be a bit much. Here is a way to short-circuit the flow during a Dark Attack — I put this term in quotes because to my mind, a Dark Attack is largely an automatic electromagnetic phenomenon…

Let’s say it is Saturday night, and a group of folks are sending wild waves of sexual desire out into the noosphere — the thought cloud of mankind. Your ‘thinking’ mind is intercepting these waves and objecting, on moral grounds. Meantime, your gut brain is really getting into the swing of it. So to stop the flow, just broadcast, either neutrally or with a mild positive inflection, the message “I am the sex goddess (or god) of New Earth!” This positive message about sex repels the incoming positive sexual message, creating magnetic repulsion.

I have found when I do this that the cycle stops immediately. It is as if I am standing beside the sending telepaths, with my arm around their waists. We are on the same side of the fence. We are in the same boat. And the racket simply ceases.

Same goes for incoming rage messages. I might telepath back, either neutrally or with a mild positive inflection: I’m so angry I could murder someone! (or the like). If I stand in the shoes of the sender (who is most likely sending this message quite unconsciously), I will be ok. The upsetting incoming rage will cease.

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


(1) Telepathy is a form of sound present in 4D. In other words, it is a sound tool that can be used to tune the Soul field in 4D. (Runes written in pure Light are another such tool, these being Light tools used to tune our Soul field, which I take to be a very pure form of Light.) Like Light runes mixed with Dark magic, telepathy mixed with Dark magic can ‘tarnish’ the Soul field. But telepathy that is full of love and Light, like runes of brightest Light, will heal the Soul field.
