Dear Ones,

CHARISMATIC CATHOLICISM

In my reading, I recently came across the term ‘Charismatic Catholicism’ and looked it up in Wikipedia. To my amazement I found that there are 120 million Catholics worldwide who are Charismatic Catholics, and that it has been looked upon favorably by the last four popes …

“The charismatic movement is the international trend of historically mainstream Christian congregations adopting beliefs and practices similar to Pentecostalism. Fundamental to the movement is the use of spiritual gifts (charismata). Among mainline Protestants, the movement began around 1960. Among Roman Catholics, it originated around 1967 …

“In the Roman Catholic church, the movement became particularly popular in the Filipino, Korean, and Hispanic communities of the United States, in the Philippines, and in Latin America, mainly Brazil. Travelling priests and lay people associated with the movement often visit parishes and sing what are known as charismatic masses. It is thought to be the second largest distinct sub-movement (some 120 million members) within global Catholicism, along with Traditional Catholicism….” –from Link: “Charismatic Movement,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charismatic_movement#Roman_Catholicism ..

“Perceptions of the Charismatic movement vary within the Catholic Church, although it has been favourably regarded by the last four Popes. Proponents hold the belief that certain charismata (a Greek word for “gifts”) are still bestowed by the Holy Spirit today as they were in Early Christianity as described in the Bible.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

CHARISMA AMONGST PROTESTANT CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS

In addition there are charismatic movements in these Protestant denominations: Anglicanism, Evangelicalism, Lutheranism, Methodism, Calvinism, Adventism, and Eastern Orthodoxy, as well as the Pentecostal Christian movement …

CATHOLIC ‘CHARISMS’ AND LIGHTWORKER GIFTS

On behalf of Lightworkers, Ascensioneers, Pathfinders, and Wayshowers, I note the striking congruities between our Lightworker gifts and the Catholic ‘charisms’ …

“Renewal advocates believe that the charisms identified in Saint Paul’s writings, especially in Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, and Ephesians 4:11-12, continue to exist and to build up the Church (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, §2003). The nine charismatic gifts considered extraordinary in character include: faith, expression of knowledge and wisdom, miracles, the gift of tongues and their interpretation, prophecy, discernment of spirits and healing.(1 Corinthians 12:8-10) …. These gifts are related to the traditional seven gifts of the Holy Spirit described in Isaiah 11:1-2 (wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord, as listed in Catechism of the Catholic Church, §1831). The nine charismatic gifts in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 are also related to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy…. Other references to charisms in the Catechism of the Catholic Church include §§688, 768, 799-801, 890, 951, 1508 (charism of healing) and 2035. The belief that spiritual gifts exist in the present age is called Continuationism.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

CAVEATS FOR LIGHTWORKERS REGARDING FITTING IN WITH CHRISTIAN CONGREGATIONS

On Appropriate Restraint of Incoming Light During Worship

I feel it is important for Lightworkers who wish to join a Christian Church that they restrain their charismatic gifts during regular church services, as outpouring of grace through Spirit can be upsetting to those of the congregation not so gifted.

As some of you have perhaps found, pastors and ministers who are holding church services can understandably feel that outpouring of grace during services might interfere with the performance of their sacred office.

For instance, outpouring of grace during the Offertory … the uplifting of bread and wine at the Eucharist … while understandable and nearly unavoidable from the stance of the participating Lightworker … might fill the church with such Light as to cause a pastor or minister to falter in speaking the words of the ritual. Speaking of the words is very important to the perfection of the rite; and so I suggest that attending Lightworkers appeal to their Ascension Teams to flow through only as much grace through Spirit as is best for the ritual at hand. The ritual is, I feel, of great importance in dispensation of grace to humankind.

The Spectre of Excommunication for Catholic Lightworkers

The spectre of excommunication is always a concern for Catholics who are Lightworkers; thus I advise prudence and circumspection when with a congregation and its pastors. If we do our best not to stand out, and are careful not to express dissent of any kind, or to make any prophetic announcements; if we avoid healing anyone in the congregation through the languages of Light and sound; if, in fact, no one knows us other than to discern our devotion to the Mass and its Sacraments, then, I feel, we will be more likely to fit in.

In particular, I advise avoiding engaging in discussions about the currents of charisma and mysticism oft found in Catholic congregations today, as those with whom we speak may have strong feelings either for or against. By not discussing controversial topics we can stay out of the limelight and avoid controversy, I feel. In other words, when with a group of people, I feel it is best to ‘go with the flow’, and not to go on about topics that may create divisiveness or differences of opinion.

Were topics near to our hearts to come up spontaneously during a conversation, and were a question to be put to us personally by perhaps one other person, and not within the hearing of a group of people, then would be the time to respond briefly and to the point, without contradicting anything we know about Christ’s teachings. So I feel.

It seems to me quite unlikely that such a question might be posed, out of thin air, by anyone in a congregation. Thus through circumspection and brevity we may remain unnoticed and reasonably well accepted, and be able to continue to enjoy the rites of the Church and the blessings they rain down upon all humankind.

On Holding Charismatic Gatherings Outside of Regular Church Services

I read about criticism of Charismatic Catholics as follows …

“Critics accuse Charismatic Catholics of misinterpreting, or in some cases violating, Church teachings on worship and liturgy. Traditional Catholics, in particular, argue that charismatic practices shift the focus of worship away from reverent communion with Christ in the Eucharist and towards individual emotions and non-liturgical experiences as a substitute.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

In the same article I read …

“Catholics who practice charismatic worship usually hold prayer meetings outside of Mass and feature such gifts as prophecy, faith healing, and glossolalia.” –from Link: “Catholic Charismatic Renewal,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Charismatic_Renewal ..

I can see that holding prayer meetings … especially with live spiritual music in which those at the meetings participate … would be a good way to express charismatic gifts without disruption of the traditional church services through ‘grandstanding’ or extra added elements beyond established ritual.

On the Difficult Question of Egoic Aggrandizement

Grandiosement of the ego is a peculiar pitfall for those gifted with charisms, and one that leads to entirely the wrong path in life. At every moment, I feel, one must align with God’s Will, His Heart, and His Mind; that is the only way to purity of Spirit and outflowing of grace.

I myself feel it it best to remain … insofar as possible … unknown to the congregation and to their pastors and ministers in this regard. Better to be unknown than constantly to be harassed and tested by notions of self-aggrandizement. Not being known at all is, I feel, a much more comfortable position in which to experience outpouring of grace, as God wills, and in the moments He chooses.

On Faking the Gifts of Prophecy, Healing and Speaking in Tongues

I note especially, from a day I attended a Pentecostal church service in Durango, Colorado, that members of Pentecostal congregations want to fit in. They want to be Spirit-filled. And sometimes they may pretend to have gifts such as prophecy, healing through laying on of hands, and glossolalia (speaking in tongues) so as to feel welcome in a congregation. I feel this is understandable from a human point of view, and expectable.

It might be helpful for a pastor or minister who has those gifts to let the congregation know they are welcome to attend just as they are … even without the gifts of Spirit … and that Spirit flows through us when it will, and not necessarily, Lord knows, at a time convenient to us.

On Lightworkers Being Cast Out by Prevailing Prophets in a Church

I feel we Lightworkers must assess the issue of one-upmanship and jealousy by prevailing prophets in a church. If we arrive with charisms, it is quite likely that a prophet who has a stance or ‘holding’ in that church may feel his standing to be threatened by our arrival.

In a church where there are one or two Spirit-filled prophets, known to the rest of the congregation for their true visions and their healing ability, a Dark vision by those so revered … to the effect that we Lightworkers are ‘sent by Satan’ might easily be believed.

If action is taken to cast a Lightworker out of a church in this way, I wonder if it might be helpful to talk with the pastor or minister about fitting in with the prevailing prophets, and helping them feel at ease? I say ‘I wonder’ because when this happened to me some years ago, I was too devastated by the casting out to approach the pastor about it later through dialogue.

To my way of feeling, there is nothing worse for me, as a Lightworker, than to be accused by several good Christians of being the very opposite of what I truly am. On the other hand, it is true that people are people. It would be better to try to talk together and resolve these misunderstandings, than never to address them. This I feel especially to be a good avenue when Lightworkers live in small towns with few choices of places to worship.

CONCLUSION

I see the likelihood of being ‘cast out’ (in the case of a Protestant church) or ‘excommunicated’ (in the case of Catholicism) as a cause for concern for Lightworkers, Ascensioneers, Pathfinders and Wayshowers.

I hope this blog offers those gifted with the Incoming Light a toehold for interacting with our Christian churches with less concern about blame and judgment by their congregations. First of all, I suggest we attend those churches that look favorably upon charisma. Then if the issue of ‘being different’ or ‘wrong’ comes up, we can talk together about a church’s stance on charisms and charismatic Christianity. It may be we will all gain many new insights in that way.

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

Purifying the Waters of Greater Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I am here in one of the many Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA) lands, and I see this spill … not too big of a spill …

… that goes down through a parking lot area. It is just very peculiar; it looks to me as if it has oil in it. Now there are naturally occurring tar seeps here in the Santa Monica Mountains. I have just never seen anything exactly like this; and I just cannot figure it out. I must admit my curiosity is aroused. I am standing in the parking lot, here in the Conservancy lands; and I have to admit I have a funny feeling about this place …

… and I cannot quite figure it out. There is a hiking trail that goes up along here … See? Up the mountain … I am not sure where …

And then over here, there are these abrupt cliffs. It looks like they are crumbling abruptly, in a riparian area which is very beautiful. And there is this strange jumble of land, like there is a fault line, or unstable earth here …

The land is obviously tumbling down, right? Usually there is a fault line when that happens.

I just have a feeling here, that there is something that needs adjustment. There is something about the natural order here, that could benefit from a clearing or cleansing. I think what I will do is: Go up to Mount Shasta, and get some bottles of snow … pure, white, diamond Light snow from up there, which is well cared for by one of the Ascension workers, Sandra Walterhttps://sandrawalter.com/ ..

I am going to go to Mount Shasta … I think it is ok … and just get some jars of snow or snow melt … and then have a little ceremony in places like this, in the Los Angeles area, where I see there is something that needs fixing … that the land is not settled, or is sad, or somehow denser than the rest of the land … as in the case of that Rocketdyne nuclear spill or leak that happened in the 1960s in the Santa Susana Mountains …

Link: “Santa Susana Field Laboratory,” in English Wikipedia …   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Susana_Field_Laboratory#History ..

… around those areas where the runoff is from that.

I would like to bring some of the Mount Shasta water down to Los Angeles, and pour it into those places where the waters are that need to fractalize differently. I think what will happen is that, immediately the waters that are there will take on that brilliant, white Light from Mount Shasta. That is what I am going to do; I am going to make a project of it, in the coming months, and see what can be done for the waters of the Greater Los Angeles Area.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with ceremony and water blessings, there is the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto …

Video: “Dr Masaru Emoto Hado Water Crystals Full Documentary,” by Michel Sunshine, 28 July 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDW9Lqj8hmc ..

… who did studies on the nature of water in various places, and found, under the microscope, that the water molecules had different structures. So it is possible for water to take on different frequencies … very easily, in fact … when it is exposed to different kinds of environments and different emotional moods, for instance, in human beings.

We have the ability to transform the waters of Earth. And water from a beautiful, sacred place, such as Mount Shasta, is one good example of a place on Earth that is so high, that it can bring renewed life to all the areas that are desolate through the unthinking destruction of the ecosystem for the sake of … dare I say it?! … short-sighted greed. [laughs]

You all, take care, until next time. And let us think, together, what we can do to lengthen the observation point of most people, from the needs of the present, to the future of humankind and of Earth; things like this, small things … things that really do not cost much of anything.

We can do that just by our intention. We do not have to go to Mount Shasta; we can just do it. We can just sit here, in this place, and bless this land. And that would do it.

Until next time … [Waves goodbye]

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

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

[Video shows rows of tall trees … could they be Araucaria (Norfolk Island Pines)? … along each side of a deserted, wet, two-lane street.]

This morning I came by a little earlier, and I was walking by this very stretch of trees, and I started hearing the voice of, I guess, a Deva (a ‘Deva of a Copse of Trees’).

Image: “Maui Deva 3,” by Alice B. Clagett, 4 May 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Maui Deva 3,” by Alice B. Clagett, 4 May 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

It was pretty cool. The Deva was saying: This is my place here [the road and the trees]. Right here, this is my place [where a side road branched off from the main road]. This is my special place. a

And so I said: Why is it your special place?

And the Deva said: … [speaking from the righthand row of trees] … Because there’s a beautiful view of the ocean over there … You cannot see it very well from here; but I guess … Whoa! What is this? My gosh! …

Image: “Maui Deva 4,” by Alice B. Clagett, 4 May 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

You cannot see it from here, but I am guessing that Deva is pretty darn tall, to see over these huge trees, to the ocean …

Image: “Maui Deva 5,” by Alice B. Clagett, 4 May 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

And later I was going up that way … [pans round to the other direction of the road, which goes a little bit uphill] … and the Deva said: How dare you trespass on this place! [laughs]

You know, as human beings we need to start becoming more aware of the sacred places on Earth, and doing our best to honor them, I feel. This is one of them; just thought you might like to know.

And there are many more like this: sacred places on Earth that humankind will soon be learning to recognize.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice,

Bell Rock

Here I am at Bell Rock in Sedona, checking out the vortexes (vortices). It is a pretty windy afternoon here, as you can tell. There are all these mesas out here, and coming up right here  …[pans to a rock shaped like a bell] … this is Bell Rock, as you can see. We will see what happens …

Twisted, Dwarf Juniper Tree

This is a gnarled … I guess it is a juniper tree. See how it swirls? It is characteristic of areas where there are vortexes, I hear …

I am going to pan out and show you more. First, there is the little, dwarf tree. And then there is this ledge, and this area here … There is Bell Rock. And here is an area with little cairns on it … little piles of stone …

Rock Cairns

People are apparently putting these little piles of stone around, where they feel the vortex energies. See, there is one … and another one at the top. There are more around here too …

View of Mesas from Bell Rock

And then there is a view, from this ledge, way out over the horizon here … A beautiful view, huh? Absolutely beautiful. So I am going to sit on the ledge for a while and see what happens. I will let you know …

Feminine Vortex Energy Spot

… I am sitting here on the ledge [This is the ledge shown in the image “Rock Cairns at Bell Rock, No. 1,” above], and there are rescue workers coming down. I guess somebody needed rescuing here.

The energy that I am feeling is coming from the sky down towards my feet. It is ‘downward’ energy, otherwise known as ‘female’ energy … And there goes the rescue helicopter up above. [laughs … there is a lot of noise as the helicopter flies away] Anyway, this is very exciting. And it looks like it is going to start raining any minute. There is thunder and lightning, and a little blue sky, and a lot of scuddy clouds out there.

It is very dramatic here in the wilderness right now. There go the rescue workers … I can see the very top of their heads are going down the mountain right now. It is very exciting, so … To be continued, perhaps …

Other Side of Bell Rock

… Wow and wow. This is right chillin’ … I do not know if you can see it too well: This is Bell Rock. And there is quite a contrast with the sky and the sun. I am walking along this path, which is looking extremely interesting, here. I do not know. This side of the rock is just a lot more interesting …

Whorls in Bell Rock Itself

Let’s see, maybe I could get it here. Maybe I could get it by zooming in … Yeah, there you go … Whorls of rock. And a few times, the junipers are also whorled …

The energy around Bell Rock is so strong that, from a mile or so away, it starts hitting the crown of my head. This is really strong energy.

Now that I am here, and a little concerned about an oncoming storm, the energy does not feel quite so strong. So, onward and downward. We will see what happens …

Mixed Vortex Energy Spot

So here we have a spot that is a space between another mesa and Bell Rock. And it is on the path … And this spot right here, nobody ever talks about. But it has both energies: Male and female …

As a locational aid, in case you are walking the footpath at Bell Rock … I think it was the Courhouse Loop footpath? , here are views to the right of, and to the left of, the saddle where I felt the mixed vortex energy. The photos were taken from the footpath.

This is right-hand mesa at the saddle. As you can see, there is a bench by the footpath there …

There is Bell Rock, to the left of the saddle, as viewed from the path …

And this spot right here, nobody ever talks about, but it has both energies, male and female.

OVERVIEW OF VORTEX ENERGY

Masculine Vortex Energy

So at Bell Rock, there are various kinds of energy. One is the ‘ground up’ energy. I can feel it coming up from the ground, through my body. And they call that masculine energy.

Feminine Vortex Energy

Then there is another kind of energy; it comes from the sky, down through the body. And they call that feminine energy. 

Mixed Vortex Energy Joins Sky and Earth in the Human Heart

Sometimes there are areas where it is mixed; it comes up, and it also comes down. And that energy meets in the heart; in the human heart. If you sit with that energy, and you are lucky, it transforms the whole reality of a person … that love energy. It joins the sky and earth.

I hope you get a chance to sit at Bell Rock sometime. This [I point to where I am sitting] is not Bell Rock, but I felt I had not completely explained. So, I hope you get a chance to go to a sacred spot, and experience the wonderful energy of Earth and Sky.  Catch you later …

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