Dear Ones,

Dear Ones,

I heard a little more on the ‘astral airs’ recently about an Indian spiritual leader much revered, and who apparently headed up a Death Cult there. I will have more about that a little later, I have this for you today. This has to do with a student of his, a woman who married the leader of a Death Cult in the United States. In my writings, I nickname the woman and her husband ‘Inanna’ and ‘Heart Vampire’.

Black Magic: Psychic Swooning as a Prelude to Murder? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here is another of my ‘perilous tales’. These are dangerous events, whether psychical or physical, that have occurred in my life in my life (but thankfully, not in very recent times).

I was just now thinking today about the most curious instances of ‘swooning’ that I experienced in the years 2012-2015 when I went to the meditations of a neo-Hindu group in West Los Angeles and also in the Wild West. I had never ‘swooned’ before, but I ‘semi-swooned’ so many times during those meditations that I finally drew pictures of the events that took place in the Wild West …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

About Electronics Going Down During Solar Events

I have something short and sweet to tell you about black magic and electronics. I have spoken in other blogs about how, during times of solar flair … Solar Events … lots of times my electronics will act kerflooey and go down … just stop working … especially during X-flares or multiple M-flares. That has not been happening much in recent years, but I have experienced a lot of near misses happening.

What I notice is that the astral air thickens with telepathy about other people’s curses; for instance, if I am on the internet, I might hear them saying: Get off the internet! Get off the internet!

And I do not want to, because I am working on something, right? They do not know what they are doing, I feel. But their subconscious minds are demanding that I get off the internet. From my own energy field what happens is, a kind of a sparky energy starts coming out of my eyes, and a kind of a sparky energy … little sparks … starts coming out of my heart chakra as well.

I believe it is these energies of annoyance or aggravation that are causing the trouble with the electronics. So what I do now, when I start to hear something annoying on the clair hearing plane, is that I get up and walk away from the electronics. If I stay away from the electronics for a little while, then that that whole thing clears, and I can go back and work safely.

So there is a fail-safe mechanism, and that is our own hearts. We can stop this stuff from happening if we rise to Awareness of the subconscious things that are happening all around us, and we act on that information in a conscious way.

The lesson or moral I would draw from this is that hatred tears things down, on Earth. Even annoyance and aggravation are a very mild form of hatred that destroys things: Electronics stop working, and phones stop working. All kinds of things stop working.

But love is the energy that will co-create the New Reality on Earth.

The Urban Legend About Using the ‘Tachyon Field’ as a Weapon of War . Or Is It the ‘Attack Y’all Field’?

There is an urban legend about the ‘Tachyon Field’ that could be produced during group meditation when somebody mind controls everyone else in the group. There was a wild astral story going round, some years ago, to the effect that this Tachyon Field could be used as a weapon of war by the military. Because of that, I prefer to call it the ‘Attack Y’all Field.’

The True Story: Hatred of Women Expressed Through Group Energy

But the truth of the matter is that this field of energy that was happening, happened because the leader of the meditation was feeling anger and hatred, and upset against women.

He was leading a mixed group of men and women in meditation. And so what happened was that he and the other men in the group that were under his command, used that energy to attack the women in the group.

The Urban Legend (Continued): Authority by Government Grant to Kill Women?!

A grant was approved for the study of this ‘weapon of war’ … so the Urban Legend has it … and a trial was begun, using the women in the meditation group as test subjects. The question, to be proven or disproven, was: Could the ‘attack y’all field’ be used by the men in the meditation group to destroy the women in the group? The Pentagon would pay good money for this, or so this amazing urban story went. 

The experiment was undertaken. Some of the women passed on because of it. Others felt that their lives were endangered, but if they rested in faith, then they came through it all right. So, at least according to the astral stories, there were some deaths … some people going missing … and then other people that rose to faith and got through the whole thing.

The Truth About the Tachyon Field Experiment

The ‘attack y’all field’ is the energy of hatred, of misogyny, of loathing, of anger, of annoyance, of grievance … some kind of negative energy of the heart chakra that goes out and attacks the person that is the object of that emotion.

It is much worse in a group, if a bunch of people get together and decide they are going to attack someone. Whether it is a bunch of women attacking a man, or a bunch of men attacking a woman, or attacking someone of the same gender, it just does not matter. It is the numbers of people that feel hatred for some particular person, or perhaps for a smaller group, that cause the trouble and the mischief on Earth.

What to Do When the Incoming Clair Vibe is Hatred of You Specifically

If you are targeted like that, what they say is: Send the energy back, transformed with love. With your mind and with your open heart you say …

May you be blessed with unconditional love!

There is nothing that the black magic realm can do with that … nothing at all. This is the energy of Christ consciousness that you send back. And there is no response from the lower realms … from the hellworlds … for that. It cannot be.

The Moral: Hatred Destroys This World, But Love Builds It Up

It is the same with electronics, you see.

Other people’s hatred, directed at us, can influence our electronics to temporarily go down.

In the same way, hatred destroys this world.

But our loving heart energy can influence the electronics to work perfectly, proving that love builds this world. Why is this?

Electronics Are Halfway Between the Physical and the Astral Plane

We can influence the electronics to work perfectly because electronics are halfway between the astral realm and the physical realm in the way that they work … and the energy that they work with. So we can see in them that they are more sensitive to the energy of our human electromagnetic fields.

As such, as half-astral inventions, they can prove this point that hatred destroys this world; it is that ‘Shiva, Shiva’ thing. And love builds this world up. That is that ‘Brahma’ feeling: Love builds the world up. And then there is Lord Vishnu, who sustains creation. After Lord Brahma creates … manifests … reality, it is Lord Vishnu that dreams the dream of the illusion until a new illusion is built.

On Exercising Our Trimurti Powers Wisely

This is the Trimurti: Lords Shiva, Brahma, and Vishnu. All beautiful … all absolutely beautiful energies, but can we use them wisely? Can we use the Shiva energy to destroy what ought to be destroyed? And can we use the Brahma energy … the great energy of creation … to build that which must be built for New Earth?

And can we let that ‘tachyon field’ thing go? It is time!  And it is time to stop worshiping Lord Shiva just because we feel angry; do you not feel it to be so? Lord Shiva ought to be the thing that we use, with great discretion, to tear down the old so that the great New can begin … a New Beginning for Earth, do you not agree? 

That is all for now. Talk to you all later.

Dear Ones,

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have just a little to talk about on this morning of glorious Incoming Light, with regard to an astral story I have heard, off and on, and with regard to the power of the objects that we keep around us.

Societal Norms Regarding the Physical Body

First I would like to say that I think that this story is symbolic rather than actual. Here is the astral story: First I would like to talk a little about the size of a man’s phallus or penis. You know, they are all different sizes, I guess. At least that is what I have read. And I suspect that, for men who are beyond the range of the middle size of a phallus, that they run into difficulties with regard to societal expectations … whether they are in the range of rather large or long, or in the range of rather small.

And so, it is an interesting thing, the idea of what is the norm, and how society view that. It is like a totally fabricated and made up thing. And yet, by not fitting the norm of society, we fall into all kinds of trouble on the astral plane … because people say things unconsciously, and judge other people by appearances. So that is my notion on the size of a person’s penis. That is background for the story. Here is the astral story …

Astral Story: The Penis in the Pickle Jar

There was a leader who was wonderful in all respects, and greatly loved by his followers; who had many excellent Soul qualities. But he had one physical difficulty. And that was that his penis was small. And he spoke to his trusted followers, and told them, before he passed on, that he wanted them to remove that penis before he was taken to the undertaker … and that they should keep it; and that it would confer to them great Soul powers.

And so, in this fictional story, the penis was kept in a pickle jar in the room of the person that was considered to be most worthy of that honor, in this group.

Now what would happen, if that were actually true? First I would like to say that this portion of the person’s anatomy obviously contained within it great Soul wounding … because, in his mind, it would have represented the one quality in which he failed to live up to his very high spiritual standards. So in this fictitious pickle jar would be the greatest Soul wounding of a great leader.

Now what would this do to the person that held the jar … say, kept it in their room, or something like that? My astral story goes like this: That the leader said that the worthy person who kept this memento in his room would always enjoy the wisdom and the astral channeling and the leadership presence … all the wonderful qualities of the leader would always be with him. In other words, this leader would always live on, and convey … through the words of the person holding the pickle jar … the very depth of the teachings of this person.

Death and the Desire Elemental

But what would really happen? Would it be that, or would it be some other, unexpected outcome? My thoughts on this are like this …

You know we have discussed and read Arthur Powell’s information about the ‘desire elemental’ …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … Search the topic: desire elemental

… which is a separate being from us, he says, that helps us to stay on Earth by always having a pull towards our animal instincts, and down towards the Earth. And in a normal person’s lifetime, when they pass on, after a time this desire elemental leaves them.

On Earthbound Spirits

Now you know, there is a theory in the Eastern religions … a theory which I agree to also … to the effect that, when we pass on, the very best way to deal with the physical body that is still on Earth, is to cremate it. And the theory in the East is that, the longer that it takes to disperse the atoms of the physical body, the longer will be a person’s stay in a kind of Earth-bound, mesmeric state, on the astral plane.

One of the reasons that I agree with this is that I have walked through graveyards, and I have found ghosts talk to me, that are still mesmerized and stuck to the grave site because the physical body has not yet decomposed. And so I agree with the Eastern concept that it is better to simply help that process along by cremating the physical body. That is what I think.

Astral Story: The Penis in the Pickle Jar, continued 

Doubling Up on the Baser Instincts? And from that, here is a wild theory: Were that astral story to be true, could it be that the desire elemental is staying with that penis in the pickle jar? Could it be that, instead of channeling in the great presence of the teacher, it is, instead, enhancing the desire elemental of the person that is in charge of taking care of the pickle jar?

Could it be, in fact, that it is channeling in those kinds of desire world qualities from all over Earth … like the desire for sexuality … the desire to kill … the fear of being killed … the desire to take over the world … the desire for money … the willingness to kill for money … in other words, what we call the baser instincts? … Because a desire elemental, all by itself, clinging to just a piece of a corpse … that would be untempered by the intellect of a human being. In other words, it would be free to pursue those instincts which are uniquely its own.

And if a person that held such a memento were to idolize, or look up to, that which was in the pickle jar, then that person’s own desire body would become coarser and coarser. And if they were the subsequent leader of that group, I could foresee all kinds of terrible things happening with regard to the karma of the group, and so forth.

Ghosts, Physical Remains, and Cremation

So what I am saying here is: First, it is a good idea to cremate the entire body. Second, it is not a good idea to keep any mementoes around, of people who have passed on, if what it is, is preserved body cells. It is much better to cremate. You know? And that will allow the Soul of the person not to be tormented by being Earthbound … because that teacher (or some fractal of him) would be kept Earthbound and tortured by what his desire elemental was doing.

On Being Haunted. So not only is it good for the person who passed on, but it is also good for the people who are either friends or followers or family or whoever, who are left behind, not to be tortured by ghosts, you know?  Ghosts need to pursue their own Soul evolution, as time goes on.

The Energy of the Things We Keep Around Us. And the other thing, I think, to be learned from this astral story, which is clearly fictional, is: It really matters what we keep in our presence … especially in our bedrooms and our meditation rooms and kitchens, I think. Well, all over the house, it is very important, the energy of the things that we keep around us.

That is why people turn to crystals and being outdoors as much as possible. There is a very high energy outdoors. Not to keep things that, in energy, are sad or angry, or that make us feel any negative emotion whatsoever, even fear of death, you know? … whatever it is.

Why not have flowers; beautiful bright lights inside? Why not have high spiritual objects and crystals around?

So that is what I think, about that one astral story.

Worship of Sexual Organs: Yoni and Lingam

Just to let you know, in the East many people worship the sexual organs, in a kind of an exalted state of sacredness … such as, I think it is called, the Yoni and the Lingam. But in these cases, what they usually use are stone, not human remains …

Image: “Lingam with Yoni and Nandi in river Narmada [River], Maheshwar MP India: Holy dip in the holy narmada river. om namah shivaya. Lingam, Yoni, Nandi to the left. Signify the male [Hindu god Shiva] and female [Hindu god Shakti or Parvati] union” … by Author Nevil Zaveri, 12 February 2013,from “Wikimedia Commons” … CC BY 2.0 Generic

Image: “Lingam with Yoni and Nandi in river Narmada [River], Maheshwar MP India: Holy dip in the holy narmada river. om namah shivaya. Lingam, Yoni, Nandi to the left. Signify the male [Hindu god Shiva] and female [Hindu god Shakti or Parvati] union” … by Author Nevil Zaveri, 12 February 2013,from “Wikimedia Commons” … CC BY 2.0 Generic

So if you are of that disposition to worship the primal drives, or to understand that the nature of life on Earth flows from Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine, then why not use those sorts of symbols, rather than something sad? That is how I feel about it.

On Shrunken Heads

Postscript on human remains: This has to do with shrunken heads. I know it is an art object situation, with cultural significance. But I do feel that shrunken heads … if you happen to run across any, or have any in your collection … it would be a lot better to cremate them as well … because the spirits of the dead will stick around for situations like that.

And a shrunken head belonged to someone who was murdered, probably? Maybe an enemy of the person who cut the head off? And so you would be in a situation of animosity with the Spirit World. When one ghost is upset and angry, or even vengeful, other ghosts … that have similar Soul signatures … will cluster around. And so it can get very uncomfortable for people to keep human remains around.

And I think there are laws about it too. I just do not know what the laws are. I recall reading, one time, about someone who found somebody’s finger. And there was an assumption that the person had died, I guess. They went to great trouble to cremate that finger. Not a bad idea, you know? Not a bad idea at all.

On Attracting Restful Astral Influences to Our Homes

The extent of our involvement with the astral world is hard to calculate. But I think it is good to attract to ourselves restful influences from the higher astral world … such as nature spirits, or Devas, or like that, if you are going to be doing any astral attracting at all.

It just goes to show that the remains of people who have passed on are probably not a situation to find ourselves with, in our homes. I have no doubt but that others might have other points of view. But what are we for, on this Earth, but to stand there, and to be ourselves, and to know who we are? That is my feeling.

What an amazing story, isn’t it? God bless you and keep you.

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

Dear Ones,

I know Ascension lore is a bit more optimistic in orientation than some of the ways of interpreting the Biblical Revelation of Saint John the Divine. So I thought I would provide some blogs on the chapters of Revelation, with comments in an Ascension context. Here is the blog on Revelation, Chapters 2-4. There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would talk to you a little bit more about Saint John the Divine’s Revelation, Chapters 2, 3 and 4. Just to let you know,

Revelation Ch 2 and 3 CommentsChapters 2 and 3 (KJV, public domain) are his messages that he channeled to the angels of the seven churches …

Image: The island of Patmos and the seven churches of Asia Minor: “Map with seven churches mentioned in The Revelation of John from the Bible.” Asia Minor, once known as western Anatolia, is the westernmost protrusion of Asia. User:Jonadab, from Wikimedia Commons … public domain

Image: “Map with seven churches mentioned in The Revelation of John from the Bible.” Asia Minor, once known as western Anatolia, is the westernmost protrusion of Asia. User:Jonadab, from Wikimedia Commons … public domain … The island of Patmos is shown, and also the seven churches of Asia Minor: Pergamum, Thyatira, Smyrna, Sardis, Philadelphia, Ephesus, and Laodicea.

They include specific instructions for the members of each congregation. And so I will not go into those in detail …

Revelation Ch 4, Bible Text and Comments (KJV, public domain) 

Image: “Behold the Throne” … https://i1.wp.com/www.believetrust.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/BeholdTheThrone.jpg?resize=960%2C550This artwork depicts the vision of John the Divine expressed in Revelation Ch 4.

Then moving on to Chapter 4, there is some very interesting information in here, having to do with a vision that John the Divine had of God. It goes like this …

1 “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”

Now, remember that the trumpet is the sound that the heart makes when it is open; it is the sound of love … So this trumpet said: “ Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”  –Revelation 4:1 … And to continue …

2 “And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

3 “And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

4 “And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

5 “And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
