Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This is a message for our schools, both grade schools and high schools. It has to do with the importance of schooling children in the arts … music, dance, and visual arts, among others … so that they may achieve unified mind (hemispheric integration) at an early age …

Children who have reached the age of reason have only recently set aside the intuitive mind of their early childhoods, which they developed through play and exploration of the world around them.

What we call ‘the Arts’ are formal or stylized expressions of this early learning mode, the play and exploration and tactile manipulation of the world through which our ‘inner child’, which even now, in later life, retains the memories of early childhood, developed its intuitive faculty.

Study of the arts soon after the age of reason is attained … after the left brain and the logical mind come into play … allows a child to integrate the Lower Mental Body of early childhood with the Higher Mental Body of later life. (1)

This creates a neuronal link between the two hemispheres of the brain, through the corpus callosum, which is a neuronal bridge in the brain. (2) The result is unified mind.

This more complete state of brain activity can be attained in later life, but it is much more easily attained in childhood, because the experience of relying on intuitive mind is much more recent, and more easily remembered. It is never too late, though; if you are an older person who has not yet achieved hemispheric integration … for instance, if you tend to be logical but not creative … then through study of the Arts you can attain that end.

There is a video below on this topic … the video I feel to be less complete than the Introduction above. After the video is an edited Summary …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would mention something about early childhood education, just as children begin to attain the age of reason. My feeling is … intuitively speaking … that it would be very good to help a child integrate the newly developing, Higher Mental Body with the Lower Mental Body at the very earliest possibility.

My suggestion to promote this united mind … unified mind … is to teach young children … allow them to go to classes in music … any kind of music … in dance, and in art. I realize these are topics that have been eliminated from many schools right now because of budget.

Parents can help with this by volunteering to teach children after school. It is extremely important because as the child advances in age it becomes more difficult … because of the distance between the experience of joyful spontaneity in early childhood, and the adult work-a-day world … the very distance, not only in time, but also in experience in the other direction … so it becomes very hard to do that.

I ask that the schools consider this; consider finding the funds to allow children to unify their minds in grade school and in high school. It is very, very important; so I feel. That is it for now, from the intuitive plane.

[Then follows a short video clip of two ficus trees waving in the wind.]

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

Schmoozing, Lollapaloozing, Bruising, Misusing . and the Incoming Light . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 22 October 2015; revised on 27 January 2019

Dear Ones,

Here is a blog about the new Light and the ‘old’ understandings about our reality …

  • putting spin on data is out. How can we trust each other if we fudge?
  • advertising and entertainment that ratchet up our base emotions are out. Let us appeal to our higher instincts instead … our courage, our nobility, our love for our fellow man, our desire to protect and sustain our children, our desire to uplift and enrich our own lives … our knowingness that life exists so that we may express the abundance of the Universe. Let us advertise and offer entertainment that uplifts, rather than dragging ourselves and our communities down into the quagmire of unconscious desires!
  • crowd control is out … we are individuals! Each human being is a reflection of God’s Light and love.
  • lobbying is out. Let us allow our governments to represent the common good, with a calm mind. Without that mini-noospheric commotion around what I want. What we want… Let it be: What’s best for all of us.
  • catastrophic thinking is out, Surely, all is well. We are that reflection of Source. We would not be manifest, in physical bodies, at all were it not that Source energy has created us and is sustaining us, moment by moment. Love and Light and joy are our birthright and our heritage.
  • conspiracy theory (every manifestation thereof) is also out. Dudes and dudesses! Shake hands with your right hemisphere. The refreshing fact is, the right brain intuitively knows that all is well. As they say: Breathe in. Breathe out. Know that all is well.

IN: pure truth, unaltered by negative emotions

Dear Ones, Know that All is God. We are That!

  • We are both the known and the unknown in ourselves.
  • We are completely safe.
  • All that is happening is a coming to greater understanding of who and what we truly are.
  • We are remembering our greatness, the vastness of our own Souls.

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