“By the sign of the cross … all magic is stayed, all sorcery confounded, all the idols are abandoned and deserted, and all senseless pleasure ceases, as the eye of faith looks up from earth to heaven,” by Saint Athanathius, Archbishop of Alexandria, “Ch. 5. The Resurrection,” in “On the Incarnation of the Word,” public domain (1)

Dear Ones,

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS

From my youth, I remember the ‘sign of the cross’ which confers the blessing of Christ’s presence in our lives: In nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti (in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit):

THE BLESSINGS CONFERRED BY BAPTISM

Arthur E. Powell has an intriguing passage to do with the ceremony of Baptism, which includes the blessing conferred by the sign of the cross.

Citation: “The Mental Body.” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, The Theosophical Publishing House Limited, London; printed by the Whitefriars Press, Ltd, Tonbridge and London, 1927 … “Chapter XXXII. Rebirth,” page 289, the first full paragraph, beginning “The ‘seeds’ …” through the second full paragraph on page 290, ending “… of Vishnu.”

According to the above passage, a child is born with seeds of evil, which the Catholic Church calls ‘original sin’. The making of the sign of the cross on a young child during the sacrament of baptism, creates an artificial elemental which is like a ‘guardian angel’. This thought form is ‘ensouled’ by a sylph.

ABOUT SYLPHS

Image: A sea sylph, http://www.selfgrowth.com/images/Detweiler_image8.JPG ..

Sylphs are air elementals, thus hard to depict. The above picture is of a Sea Sylph, but it reminds me of the Baptismal Sylph, which has the same sort of energy, but settles in the shape of a white, fiery cross onto a person’s back at the level of the heart chakra when the person is baptized …

In the area of his heart is a fiery cross. –from “On Experiencing the Desire Body of the World,” by Alice B. Clagett, in “I Am of the Stars,” https://www.iamofthestars.com

The Sylph thus ‘protects our back’ … protects the back part of our heart chakra, which in some instances might otherwise be ‘stitched shut’ by nature spirits that have been bewitched by the dark. (3)

In Arthur Powell’s passage referred to above, there’s a description of baptism when practiced by the Liberal Catholic Church. In that ceremony, the priest makes the sign of the cross along the entire body of the child. The thought form so created is referred to, in the pass age as a ‘cuirass’. A cuirass is a defensive armor of the torso. In this case the cuirass is made of white light.

Here’s an image that reminds me of a cuirass of light that has settled on a person in the sign of a cross. To me, the dark background visually represents how the thought form, or else the Sylph, protects us from the dark. It is like a Warrior of Light protecting our heart:

ABOUT THE TRANSFORMATION OF A BAPTISMAL SYLPH INTO A SERAPH

According to Arthur Powell’s passage, in the fortunate instance when the baptized child lives his life in the spirit and thought of Christ (what some call ‘walking with Christ’), then there comes a time when the Sylph is transformed into a Seraph. For the Sylph, this means ‘individualisation’ …

A seraph is a member of the highest order of angels, with individualized consciousness. The pink, winged figure below is a depiction of a Seraph by Giotto di Bondone:

A PERSONAL STORY ABOUT A BAPTISMAL SYLPH

After reading all this, I was really happy that I had been christened (baptized, blessed with the presence of Christ) in my early childhood.

Further, in recent years I’ve had an experience of my Sylph activating and bringing forth the love of Christ through my own heart chakra. For me, this is an absolutely glorious experience of ecstasy. This happened, apparently, because the spiritual music being played and sung by the musicians and the congregation in that church, were so very beautiful that my heart was filled to overflowing with joy at hearing it.

The mountain of Christed energy I encountered when my Sylph activated had an untoward side effect: The pastor in the Christian congregation where I had been worshiping, along with two ushers, ushered me out of the church, and asked me not to come back.

How Christ’s Light Reveals the Darkness in This World

When Christed energy arrives in our lives, it can be disconcerting to other people, as the light of Christ shows, in striking detail, the dark in this world, which had heretofore remained hidden.

When those around us see what is before them, in this duality play on Earth, they begin to realize than choices must be made … very important choices for the welfare of their Souls.

The choices that lie before us, at each turn of the path, in every second of our waking consciousness, are these: To turn to the Light of Christ, or to fall back into the great slumber of darkness.

When each of us begins to rise to the vision of Light and Dark, the first thing that happens is, we feel that someone else has ‘done something to us’ … Someone else has brought beings of darkness into our lives.

On Aligning with Christ, Rather Than Blaming or Judging Others

This, though, is a misapprehension. Instead of blaming or judging others, it’s better to align with Christ, to know that he is with us and will protect us. That is the first step on our Christed journey.

Then, should others blame us for what their newly opened eyes begin to see, let us not judge them as they judge us. Let us pray Christ may confer the blessing of his love and light upon them.

I say this by way of caveat, as it seems that even a little bit of greater Christ consciousness … as in my case …  is always swiftly followed upon by misunderstanding from those around us. If yours is that path, may you will be the more easily able to cope with what may follow, be it joyous or upsetting, from the standpoint of social acceptance.

How the Sign of the Cross Can Bring Us Great Joy

Setting that aside, I would like to end on this happy note: Lately, I’ve noticed that when I practice the sign of the cross my Sylph feels great joy, and my heart chakra energy feels protected and free to express itself in the world.

And so, for me, the sign of the cross is the answer to many worldly concerns.

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

Dear Ones,

ON EXPERIENCING THE DESIRE BODY OF THE WORLD

I read an interesting blog by lightworker Dr. Suzanne Lie called “The Opened Corridor,” 11 August 2013 blog, http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/

In it she talks about lightworkers experiencing the desire body of all Earth, rather than personal desires. We are the planet! Mastery of multidimensionality, she says, means mastery of every thought we have, every emotion we experience.

The ‘desire body’ mentioned by Dr. Lie can be equated to the lower triangle of yoga. This desire body has to do with the lower three chakras, oldstyle, which deal with survival, creativity and procreation, and will power.

Dr. Lie is saying that one’s own lower triangle can be expanded to include everyone on Earth. Which is to say, to include the desire for survival, the desire to procreate, and the desire to exert one’s will, of all the people on Earth, both those in physical form and those on the astral planes of matter … the hellworlds, purgatory worlds, and heavenworlds of the afterlife experience (which might better be phrased the ‘between-life’ experience of the Soul).

THE ILLUSION: I WANT, I LOVE, I NEED

We are, in point of fact, always experiencing the desire body of everyone on Earth, for our lower three chakras, located as they are in the area of the colon, carry the energy of the unconscious mind, the ‘gut brain’, the involuntary nervous system. This unconscious energy circulates through Gaia as the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World.

In other words, our lower three chakras swim in an unconscious stream of energy that circulates worldwide. They are that. Yet we think they are our own desires, or at the outside edge of our awareness, we may dip into the causal realm, by way of projective blame, and judge that our desires are the product of another person’s machiavellian voisting upon us of their own desire.

Both these notions are false. We are not our desires. Our desires are reverberations of the collective unconscious here on Earth. No one else is our desires either; no other person makes us have them.

Rather, we experience, in our desire body, the desires of everyone everywhere. Ego masks the issue with the notion ‘I want’ … ‘I love’ … ‘I need’. The issue is, how can we awaken to the true nature of desire? How may we awaken to the understanding that we are already experiencing the desire body of all people on Earth?

THE CHAKRAS: FRONT FUNNEL, BACK FUNNEL, AND THE NULL POINT

Image: Chakras, showing funnels: http://wordpress.wellspringreiki.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/chakrasdrawing2.jpg ..

You know how most of the chakras have a forward aspect or funnel, for interaction with the world, as well as a backward funnel extending out the back of the body? Then between these two aspects is a point of light that is the ‘null point’… where time and space touch the Infinite. I have a hunch this null point is where the consciousness of each chakra in the ‘desire body’ (i.e., ‘lower triangle’) can expand to encompass the whole world. And, for that matter, the galaxy, this Universe, all Universes, and all alternate Universes.

ON STILLING THE KARMIC BUGALOO

But I’m thinking, I’ll just start with something simple. I’d like my desire body and my heart to awaken enough for me to balance my forward chakric funnels with my backward chakric funnels. This … here’s my hunch … will decrease the reactivity of my lower triangle. It will still, and as it does, the karmic bugaloo will also slow. Nice theory, don’t you think? Sounds pretty good! So here’s a course of action I’ve been undertaking:

For each of chakras 1 through 3, I’m going to sit quietly, notice where my energy is … and this is typically forward, in ‘interact with the world’ mode. Then I’m going to place my awareness at the same anatomical level, but close to the front of the spine. That should get me to the null point. I’ll know I’ve got the right spot if I feel a flood of energy from that chakra.

THE CHAKRAS OF THE LOWER TRIANGLE, PLUS THE HEART

Chakras to do with the desire body are: the heart, the solar plexus (navel point), the sacrum (sexual chakra), and the root or basal ‘chakra’. These are the green, yellow, orange, and red chakras, respectively, in the image below:

chakras_map-svg

Image: “A map of chakras in human body,” author mpan, 17 June 2016, CC 1.0 (1)

The ‘Lower Triangle’ Compared to the ‘Vital Body’

The ‘Lower Triangle’ of yoga comprises chakras 1 through 3, which is to say, the root chakra (basal chakra), the sacral (sexual) chakra, and the navel point.

The ‘vital body’ of Sri Aurobindo and Integral Yoga comprises chakra 4 (the heart chakra), chakra 3 (the navel point, or third chakra old style), and another center located between the navel point and the sexual (second) chakra.

THE ROOT CHAKRA (BASAL CHAKRA) IS NOT REALLY A CHAKRA

The root (basal) chakra, which relates to survival and safety, is a special case, in that it has no ‘front’ and ‘back’ funnels. Instead, the root chakra itself … the red star in the above image … is the ‘lower’ funnel of this chakra, and the crown chakra … the violet circle at the top of the above image … is its ‘upper’ funnel.

THE ‘KUNDALINI CHAKRA’

What connects these two funnels is the kundalini energy which ripples up and down the spine. Thus, a more proper name for the double energy vortex would be the ‘kundalini chakra’, whose null point is the heart chakra.

THE HEART CENTER: THE HOLY CROSS

Thus the heart center might be visualized as two double vortices (two chakras) which form a cross. The first, the traditional heart chakra, has a front and back funnel, with a null point in the center of the chest at the level of the physical heart. This same null point is the center of the Kundalini Chakra described above. It looks a little like this:

heart-chakra

There are four funnel shapes in the image: a red funnel whose base points downward and whose tip is at the base of the body’s trunk; a violet funnel whose base points upward and whose tip is an inch or two inside the top of the man’s head’ and two green funnels turned on their sides and connected at their tips at heart level, inside the body of the man. The bases of the green funnels extrude from the front of the man’s chest and from his back at the level of the heart. The two heart funnels form the arms of a cross, and a vertical line connecting the red and violet funnels forms the shaft of the cross. The two green funnels represent the front and back vortices of the heart chakra; the red funnel represents the basal chakra; the violet funnel, the crown chakra; and the line connecting the bred funnel to the violet funnel represents the Pranic Column (the Central Vertical Power Current, or Kundalini). –from “On Experiencing the Desire Body of the World,” by Alice B. Clagett, in “I Am of the Stars,” https://www.iamofthestars.com

THE BAPTISMAL SYLPH … THE LIVING, FIERY CROSS THAT GUARDS OUR HEARTS

There is yet another cross that is formed on the heart chakra when a person is baptized as a Christian. This is a cross that extends along the spine above and below the heart chakra, and to the left and right sides of the chest, like this:

heart-chakra1

Image: “Christian Baptismal Sylph — A living being of white flame, shaped like a fiery cross,” by Alice B. Clagett, 15 August 2013, CC BY-SA 4.0 … There is the silhouette of a man, facing forward.

The Christian baptismal sylph is a living being of white flame, shaped like a fiery cross. It comes vividly to life when we feel devotion, whether through reading Scriptures, through singing hymns, or through helping other people.

The sylph itself stays with us all our lives, helping us feel our heart chakras. In time, through such service, it awakens to a higher state of being in the Devic Kingdom and is then know as a Seraph.

You may have run across the term ‘Seraphim’ in the Bible … this is the plural of the word ‘Seraph’, the being which the young Sylph is destined to become, just as we Christians are destined to be born again in Christ Consciousness. The time of our new awakening in Christ is right now, during this, the Awakening of Planet Earth.

ROOT LOCK AWAKENS THE KUNDALINI CHAKRA

The lower funnel of the Kundalini Chakra (sometimes mis-termed the root ‘chakra’) is the point of focus for the very powerful and ancient ‘root lock’ yogic technique. For men, that point of focus is the perineum (2), and for women, it is the tip of the cervix. Here is a good blog describing how to do root lock …

“Soul Answer: Body Locks,” by Siri Gian, http://www.soulanswer.com/body_locks.html … and page down to the section “Mul Bhand or Root Lock.”

ON STILLING FEARS BY PLACING AWARENESS ON THE COCCYX

I’ve also noticed in my own energy system a reactivity to the world emanating from the root chakra and rippling up the coccyx. This upward ripple of energy courses up the coccyx like shallow waves over a sand bar or onto a shallow beach …

Image: Shallow waves breaking onto a sandy beach: http://earthsci.org/processes/weather/waves/Waves_files/wavebend.jpg

Placing awareness on the coccyx stills this reactivity.

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

Dear Ones,

Here are offered the Christian Sign of the Cross and some tentative wording to help free people from demons that have been bound to them by black magickers. After the video there is a Summary. Text in green font is not in the video.

VIDEO: SIGN OF THE CROSS TO FREE PEOPLE FROM DEMONS

Summary of the Video

Hello, Dear Ones. I’ve been working with Christian spells to free people from demons that have been bound to them … which is a very un-Christian thing to do. So I’m using Christian prayer technology to counteract that innately evil action.

First Technique: You are free! Go where you will! I’m sure you’ve read in a past blog about my first experience of freeing the demons that were bound to me by a black magic cult. And as you may recall, it went like this …

Speaking from myself to the demons, I said: You are free! Go where you will!

And they all went off, in a flap and a flurry … And back to the person that had done the work. And I could hear her, carrying on, and like that, on the astral plane. And that was the end of it. They never tried to do that again.

Second Technique: I send you back So today I have a further technique … an additional technique for you. And this is for when a person is bound in such a way that they have difficulty staying free after the demons are free. And I’m using the Sign of the Cross, as Christians term it, to help with this. It goes like this …

Visualizing the entities that have been attached to someone else, you say to the entity …

I send you back
To the one that sent you here.
May you stay with them
Until they repent and forgive.

Then use the Sign of the Cross, once or several times, using the open hand technique pictured below …

In the name of the Father …

… Amen.

Third Technique: May you be freed of these evil influences … So, I’ve discovered one more thing to do. And that is for the person that has been bound down to the demon world. Here’s what you can do … This is a prayer you can say whether or not the bound-down person is nearby. You say …

May you be freed of these evil influences and these wicked deeds.
May your Soul be completely restored to splendor
And your heart to the grace of God’s love.

[Then make the Sign of the Cross, once or several times, using the open hand technique pictured above and labeled “Blessing Someone Using the sign of the Cross” 1-5 ]

HOW TO MAKE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS TO BLESS ONESELF

This video shows the Sign of the Cross using the thumb and first two fingers of the right hand touching each other (to signify the Holy Trinity) …

Video: “How to Make the Sign of the Cross,” by LiverCatholicToday, 5 June 2013, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGiw5j7ODqU ..

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
HOW TO MAKE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS TO BLESS OTHER PEOPLE

I suggest using  the Sign of the Cross, once or several times, using the open hand technique pictured above and labeled “Blessing Someone Using the sign of the Cross” 1-5.

This is the way that the Priest makes the Sign of the Cross at the end of Mass. I feel it might also be good for a layperson to use this gesture when blessing another person, as it directs the energy of the blessing outward, in the direction of the person or people being blessed …

SAINT BENEDICT’S EXORCISM PRAYER FOR ONESELF OR OTHERS

I like this one very much, especially the Latin version, which tags and tames the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World through rhyme, strong emotion, and visual effect. Note the importance of speaking with confidence and determination, from the navel point, which represents the will power.

Link: “Prayer Exorcism of Saint Benedict (Exorcism and the Cross of Eternal Salvation),” by Marcelo Lago, 13 October 2012, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n-yvMk-ICQ ..

Crux sacra sit mihi lux;
Non draco sit mihi dux;

Vade retro satana;
Numquam suade mihi vana;
Sunt mala quae libas;
Ipse venena bibas!

“May the holy cross be a light unto me; 
And may the dragon never be my guide;
Get behind me, Satan!
Never suggest vain thoughts to me;
The cup you offer is evil;
Drink the poison yourself!

How to Keep the Prayer of Saint Benedict at the Ready

I found a 1-inch and a 3-inch wooden St. Benedict medal available on amazon.com :

LInk: “Olive Wood St Benedict One Inch Medal on a Leather Cord,” by WJH Co., at Amazon,, https://www.amazon.com/Olive-Wood-Benedict-Medal-Leather/dp/B0175CUEJC/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1526421538&sr=8-10&keywords=WJH+Co. ..

and also a 3-inch such wooden medal by the same company …

Link: “Large St Benedict 3 Inch Medallion Medal Olive Wood Handmade in Italy on a Leather Cord,” by WJH Co., at Amazon,  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017ZF7JU6/ref=sspa_dk_detail_4?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B017ZF7JU6&pd_rd_wg=HjqGU&pd_rd_r=M5MA95AQV9TQKZZBMPQN&pd_rd_w=r1bCD ..

These wooden medals are two-sided, and one side looks a little like this, only wooden:

CSPB

“St. Benedict Medal,” from Wikimedia, CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

The letters are the first letters of the Latin phrases, so they act as a mnemonic device, to help remembers the Latin words of the prayer. The necklace is a bit pricey, but I’ve found it to be very durable.

Osmun Gifts offers inexpensive wooden Saint Benedict bracelets in several tones or colors; go to http://www.osmungifts.com/ and search the term: Saint Benedict … Here is the current link to the item:

Link: “Light Brown St Benedict Bracelet,” at Osmun Gifts, http://www.osmungifts.com/light-brown-saint-benedict-bracelet/ ..

Of course, one might simply print out the prayer (see above) and carry it in a pocket; that would be the least expensive way, and quite as good as any other.

ON WEARING A CROSS, AND ON GIVING CROSSES TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY

For ongoing protection, I always wear a wooden cross necklace. These are inexpensive through amazon.com … If you’d like to buy a batch of them for your friends and family, this can also be done inexpensively. Right now, the price for a batch of 48 is less about $20, quite good. Try this Amazon search: 48 wholesale wooden cross necklaces

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

Dear Ones,

HOW TO RENOUNCE SATAN

Here is a short, formal way for a Christian to renounce Satan (in case time is of the essence).
Say aloud:

I renounce Satan,
and all his works,
and all his worship,
and all his angels,
and all his pomp.

Then say, three times: I have renounced Satan.

Then say: I have joined Christ. I believe in Him as King and as God.

Then bow down, and say:

I bow down before the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit;
Trinity One in Essence and Undivided.

THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

The Sacrament of Baptism is frontline protection from Satan. The Christian rite, which contains an exorcism, is very beautiful. Here is a description:

I also found a beautiful Greek Orthodox baptismal ritual, which includes three rites of exorcism. Here it is …

THE CROSS AS PROTECTION

Wearing a Cross

Wearing a cross is good protection from Satan.  I found a good, lightweight, durable necklace with a wooden cross on it at Amazon:

The Sign of the Cross

The sign of the cross is a good way to use the cross as protection too.  Here’s more on the sign of the cross:
