Dear Ones,

Here is a second video to do with the Triple Eclipse Passage of Summer Solstice 2020. Topics include multitemporality, multidimensionality, and the coronavirus pandemic. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Well, here we are in the Triple Eclipse Passage or ‘Passageway’ … or sometimes it is called a ‘Window’ … to do with Summer Solstice 2020 and two other eclipses. It is just very dramatic. The Light switches and changes as timelines are merged.

Introduction

I have been feeling a little like I am a young chicken molting and changing to larger feathers. And my sleep patterns are very unusual. Maybe some of you who are Lightworkers and healers and so forth will identify with that. And others of you will probably have great tales to tell as time goes on.

I have been putting off talking to you about the multitemporal and multidimensional notion that Lightworkers and healers and channelers and others sometimes have regarding current events. It is because the events are current that I am likely to run into a ‘sticky wicket’. I will try to be brief, and for those of you that are versed in multitemporality and multidimensionality, I hope this will be sufficient.

COVID Crisis from the Stance of the Mass Media

As you may know, the nation and the world face what is termed in the mass media the ‘COVID crisis’, the coronavirus pandemic. Almost unanimously, in the news, this is viewed as a great catastrophe to which we as humankind must rise, which we must face with courage and faith; and we praise those in the community that assist, at risk to their own health, in healing others.

COVID as a Chance to Switch from Negative to Positive Dimensions

That is true, in a way. But there is another way of looking at it too, for those that like that other way better. I, for instance, see, all around me in Los Angeles, people on very different timelines and in very different dimensions from my own.

There are people experiencing fear and anger, which are hellworld scenarios; people extremely anxious over property and health. The extent of their negative feelings determines the worlds in which they find themselves … whether hellworlds or purgatory worlds … that depends on the density of the negative emotions.

We have, as aforementioned, other people who are experiencing faith and hope, and the desire to be of selfless service to humankind. Those people are offering to the people experiencing the other kinds of emotions, a chance to suddenly switch dimensions from negative to positive.

So those people who are ill, or fearful of being ill, have a chance to meet these other people who turn them … maybe for the first time in their lives … from fear and anger and anxiety and all those things, to the notions of faith, hope, charity, joy, and abundance. It is amazing!

There is an opportunity, right now, to choose the negative dimensions … the hellworlds or purgatory worlds … or to choose closer to the heaven worlds, or higher: the fifth dimension, the sixth dimension … on up to the twelfth dimension … or higher still, to the 72nd dimension positive.

Chances for Lightworkers to Transform Dimensions and Timelines through the Incoming Light

There is a great opportunity, here on Earth, from the stance of the Lightworker who believes in multidimensionality and multitemporality. It is very weird: I will be driving down the street, and I will be encountering waves of energy: temporal waves and dimensional waves that keep stirring and changing, to the extent where I need to stop, nap for five minutes, and suddenly recalibrate to whatever timeline and dimension exists at that locus in space … and then we can change up to the higher dimensions, or we can find a spot with the higher dimensions and the higher timelines; some place, for instance, where people have been meditating on their heart energy, or singing God’s praises with their heart energy.

That kind of a place, here in Los Angeles, creates an oasis of Christ consciousness through which … as I spoke of in yesterday’s video … can funnel, in a vortical motion, energy of Christ consciousness and Buddhic consciousness from the Galactic Center down to Earth, and through Earth, so that the people can experience, perhaps for the first time, perhaps after any number of times, Christed and Buddhic consciousness. It is really a rare time on Earth.

On Death from COVID-19, Viewed as Incarnational Choice or Awareness Timeline Changeup

Then there are quite a few people, according to the mass media, who have chosen to pass on at this time, during the COVID crisis. From the stance of a Lightworker, from my own stance, I feel that these people’s Souls have opted for an incarnation that teaches the lessons of Soul evolution, but perhaps without the incarnation dealing with the COVID crisis.

So those people who have chosen to pass on are looking forward to Soul lessons in a different context, in a different incarnation. It is all working out according to the Divine plan, and according to the free will hopes of the eternal Soul of each human being on Earth.

From the stance of a Lightworker, I feel that the Souls of many people here on Earth have chosen to place their Awareness on a different timeline. That decision to exist on perhaps a speeded up, or perhaps a slowed down timeline, has apparently resulted in many people dropping physical form in this timeline.

Those people still exist. They are still eternal Souls in another Awareness timeline. So this is a time of great change and great choice in that regard.

Lightworker View: Caleidoscopic Timeline Merges

With regard to my own self as a Lightworker I clairly see and hear, passing before me on the astral plane, all kinds of alternate timelines. These timelines are changing up, to higher timelines.

All kinds of thoughts and emotions that existed in non-chosen timelines or in chosen timelines in the recent past are blending upwards into the higher Light, so that those thoughts and those emotions will no longer pull my body of Light into negativity in that regard.

That is what I feel. The body of Light itself is becoming far more radiant because of the Light that is coming in, through this Triple Eclipse Passage.

On Remembering Our Soul Choices Regarding These Troubled Times

There is one other thing to do with the people that feel negative or fearful or anxious or angry regarding the current events. The thought I have is that people feel they have been dragged into these current circumstances without their choice, and that they must burden themselves with living through what is about to unfold in this timeline and this dimension in which they find themselves.

Our root and our beingness and our becomingness have to do with the reflection that we are of the Divine nature of God. Each human hologram is a separate hologram created by God in alignment with the Soul’s purpose, which, in the best-case scenario, is in alignment with the Will of God, the Heart of God, and the Mind of God. So I feel.  ccc

The truth of the issue, for people who are reluctant to go through the current unfolding mass media scenario, I feel to be that their eternal Souls chose this timeline in which they find themselves so that the vast choices of this moment would be available to them: the choices of positive mind and heart and Soul … the choices of aligning with Divine intent; or the choices of the media, which have to do with lack of free will, and power over, and poverty in the world, and so on.

So the Soul chose, but the human mind and heart and will do not remember, quite yet, that there was a free will choice to experience these events … to have a choice to meditate; to change the diet and make it more pure; to go for walks; to be with family and to strengthen those bonds with family; and to find creative ways to overcome the issue of lack of employment; to help each other out.

These were choices that the Soul made for a good reason, and that reason is this:  Movement to higher density is not going to occur until these things take place.

It is amazing, really, that so many Souls have made that choice, and so many people do not remember their Soul making it!

Conclusion

We have so many things going on at the same time, at this time. We have the people that are turning from despair and sadness, grief and anger and anxiety, to the experiences of positive emotions and positive thoughts, often aided by other human beings who help to pull them up from the depths of despair and from the negative emotions. Those people are learning to move from the negative worlds … from the negative dimensions … to the positive dimensions. That is one thing.

Then there are the people that are capable of ‘multidiming’ and ‘multitiming’. They are capable of multidimensional and multitemporal surfing. Those people have amazing opportunities today, as they move from place to place (or even sitting in one place during meditation) of making changes in their own body of Light, so that it becomes more perfect … so that their experience of multidimensionality and multitemporality is more uplifted in all regards; so that their choices are more closely aligned with the Infinite.

The people who make those choices are doing so while staying in physical form now, during this time. They are staying in the current Awareness timeline, or in another Awareness timeline that involves the same COVID crisis.

Then there are the people that decided to opt out; they do not like the COVID crisis, and they are moving on, to new incarnation.

And there may be many other things happening at this time, that I have not quite figured out right now.

It is as if all humankind is that young chicken that is molting its feathers and changing. The pinfeathers are coming in, and it is going to have large feathers with which it can fly, pretty soon. That is how I see it: We are all molting and changing and becoming quite glorious.

This is a Lightworker signing off. I hope no one takes offense at my ideas about the COVID crisis. I hope you will, each an every one, find your way free, and find your way through, and find yourself in the highest and greatest and most beautiful of New Realities here on Earth.

God bless you all and keep you safe.

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

The George Floyd ‘Flashpoint’ and Scapegoating of Police in America . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 4 June 2020

  • COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”
  • TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

Dear Ones,

COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”

I wonder if when George Floyd so poignantly said “I can’t breathe” and then passed on, whether that sent a message to us that face masks make it hard to breathe … that COVID also, they say, makes it hard to breathe … and somehow these two, the face masks and the COVID symptoms … are what are being protested, both at the same time, along with undue force by the policeman.

It seems almost as if the suffocation of George Floyd was the acting out in physical reality of our concerns about the pandemic, the concrete symbol of our fears. And now, after the ‘flashpoint’ event that occurred, it is almost as if the police are being pilloried as scapegoats … that our fears for our well-being have morphed into anger at them.

In recent weeks I have been doing an easy yoga set in addition to walking (which I love), and found these help quite a bit to divert my heart from the dramas so much in the news.

TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

It seems likely to me that the events unfolding in the social arena have to do with the high energies of the Triple Eclipse Passage now underway …

Link: “Incoming Light! Triple Eclipse Passage,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 4 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iuS ..

That passage heralds the New. Transforming to the New always requires courage, and overcoming one’s own desire to remain the same. Fear and anger do arise in our hearts, and we must counter these with positive emotions and right action in the world. That way we can become more like Christ, more like the Buddha, and more like Lord Krishna in our hearts and in the living of our lives.

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

Guidelines for Community Preparation for the HIV Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here are guidelines for community preparation for the HIV / AIDS pandemic …

Through schools, churches, social clubs such as Rotary and Lions Club, and in our immediate families, let us talk together about the current situation, and devise good strategies to meet the needs of our communities.

Let us make home means of testing for HIV readily available across demographics. I note that HIV tests are available in drugs stores such as Rite Aid for about $40.00. I suggest this alternative because of the social stigma connected with the HIV and AIDS ‘labels’.

It seems likely that statistics for women and children are greatly underestimated, as these groups until now have been considered as not being at risk. As this pandemic has begun to accelerate, such assumptions are not tenable. Women and children ought also be advised of risk, of testing procedures, and of treatment methods and prognoses, both traditional and alternative.

It seems likely, as the epidemic progresses, that traditional medical facilities will be overstretched. Let us look into the existence of and efficacy of alternative medical techniques such as homeopathy, healing tinctures and crystals, and energy rebalancing techniques, as well as alternative ways to bolster the immune system, such as healing foods and yoga.

Let us look to our schools and churches as possible places where care may be provided if hospitals should be overstretched. Making plans for such an eventuality, even though it most likely will not occur, will ease the minds of everyone in our communities, I feel.

With a better understanding of the course of epidemics (see “More Information” below) it becomes clear that the survival of human beings with resistance to the infecting agent is the key to the survival of the human race. Thus it becomes important to keep our HIV-infected populace … including HIV-infected newborns … alive and well cared for. Among them will be the resistant strain of humankind that lives on into the future and preserves our species, as was the case with the deadly influenza epidemic of the early 1900s.

Let us look with an open heart to everyone whose immune system has been weakened by the HIV virus. Let us understand that this is no longer a disease affecting only men who have intercourse with men, or people who use intravenous recreational drugs. Straight families will be equally affected … men, women and children across the board, all over America. Let us lift the HIV social stigma, so that we can talk with each other about the times of tribulation we are now facing.

Let us stand with Christ in these times. Let us look to the work of feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, visiting those in prison, and burying the dead. (1)

Let us stand as people of faith, hand in hand with the people of all faiths. Let us do what we can for all peoples everywhere, as this is a time of tribulation that crosses all borders and affects all nations, all races, and all cultures. Let us stand together, with and for each other, in the highest love and Light. Let us persevere through faith, in compassionate love, and in hope of a better tomorrow for all humankind.

In love, light and joy,
Alice B. Clagett

  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

I wrote up these notes in April 2018, with a hope that I would soon finish them off. More than a year later, I have to figure I may never get round to that. I apologize to my reader that they are presented here in outline form …

THOUGHTS ON PROVIDING STAGE ONE WORK FOR THE CALIFORNIA HOMELESS AT LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE, IN EXCHANGE FOR SOCIAL SERVICES

I have a thought that Stage One work might be provided the California homeless at less than minimum wage, in exchange for social services such as State One housing, necessary medical treatment, food, and temporary housing.

I note we have precedents in paying less than the minimum wage, here in America: Commission sales work, work on small farms, and newspaper delivery, for instance …

Link: “When Must Employers Pay the Minimum Wage?, updated by Sachi Barreiro, Attorney, at NOLO … https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employers-pay-minimum-wage-law-29600.html ..

Prison Work Programs for Less Than a Dollar an Hour

Then there is the special instance of prison labor, where inmates have the voluntary option to work, for less than $1 an hour …

Link: “How Much Do Incarcerated People Earn in Each State?” by Wendy Sawyer, 10 April 2017, in Prison Policy Initiative … https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2017/04/10/wages/ ..

Thus we have a precedent, in the exceptional circumstance of incarceration, for offering work at a great deal less than the minimum wage. Could we build upon this precedent by offering work training to our felons or released felons or homeless, at far less than minimum wage?

If the precedent might be stretched in this way, then we might have the setting for an economic bounce-back, here in California, as greater numbers of the currently unemployed are able to find employment.

Prison Release Work Camps. I am thinking that something like this might be good if, for lack of funds, we have to release the prison population. For those who are ‘unregenerate’ … to use an old-time term … work camps might be set up or ‘rough and tumble’ work might be provided as an alternative to imprisonment, at greatly less than the minimum wage. This topic I discussed in a little more detail here …

Link: “Ought the United States, like North Korea, Have Forced Labor?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 21 May 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cQw ..

A Stage One Consideration in Employing California’s Homeless at Less Than the Minimum Wage

Here is a Stage One consideration: Let’s try to figure out some way to get around the minimum wage, for people who are unhomed, and who are receiving extra social services, in the event the United States government is not able to participate, here in California, in ameliorating the situation, and easing the social unrest.

For instance, could we offer something more akin to prison labor … voluntary labor, and a very small wage, in exchange for housing and food and medical care? Could we offer that, in camps especially set up for that?

What would be the long-term situation with regard to those that California cannot now find work for at minimum wage, and who must find work? If employment at less than minimum wage in exchange for social services were to be offered as a temporary, short-term Phase One, then what would be Phases Two and Three?

THOUGHTS ON SLOWING THE SPREAD OF HIV AND AIDS IN PRISONS

On Isolating HIV-Positive Prison Populations in Cell Blocks, Together with HIV-Positive Prison Guards

In United States prisons, HIV tests might be used to separate the HIV-positive prison populations … and the HIV-positive prison guards … physically, from those prisoners and guards who are HIV-negative. These tests need to be performed every 6 months, as I understand it, and also one month after possible exposure to the virus. HIV tests might be made routine in prison medical facilities, not only for the safety of prisoners and guards, but also for the sake of the infectable law-abiding populations upon whom prisoners might prey, either as prostitutes or as sexual predators, after their release.

Conjugal Visits

I think that, to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS amongst United States prison populations, we ought to consider allowing conjugal or significant other visits in our federal prisons, and in those state prisons that currently do not do so.

Conjugal visits might lead to less intercourse amongst inmates, and less intercourse between inmates and prison guards, so that HIV might spread more slowly amongst the prison population. I feel that conjugal visits might also lead to less violence amongst prisoners.

Such a policy also might help prisoners who have been in long-time-paired relationships to preserve those relationships while imprisoned. It might help families stay together through the financial hardship of imprisonment of a parent, and that might positively affect community life.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING OF IMMIGRANTS TO THE UNITED STATES, COMPARED TO THAT IN CHINA

I have been perusing the “CIA World Factbook” online …

Link: “World Factbook,” by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ ..

… and have found it full of information pertinent to forestalling social unrest in California. For instance, from my reading, it seems to me that the human trafficking of immigrants to China from North Korea in our lifetime is, in some ways, analogous to the human trafficking of immigrants to the United States from Mexico.

How China Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from North Korea

Apparently, there are masses of people in North Korea, whom the government forces into forced labor in China …

“… North Korea does not fully comply with minimum standards for the elimination of [human] trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so; the government continued to participate in human trafficking through its use of domestic forced labor camps and the provision of forced labor to foreign governments through bilateral contracts; officials did not demonstrate any efforts to address human trafficking through prosecution, protection, or prevention measures; no known investigations, prosecutions, or convictions of trafficking offenders or officials complicit in trafficking-related offenses were conducted; the government also made no efforts to identify or protect trafficking victims and did not permit NGOs to assist victims (2015) …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in personshttps://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Korean people also may flee to China of their own free will so as to escape starvation …

“… risking arrest, imprisonment, and deportation, tens of thousands of North Koreans cross into China to escape famine, economic privation, and political oppression … –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … subheading: Disputes – International https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Those types of labor available to trafficked peoples sometimes may be beneath the level of misery that is acceptable here in the United States …

Link: “Trafficking in Persons Report June 2017,” by United States of America Department of State … https://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=801874This is a pdf download.

It might be prostitution. It might be illegal activities such as theft. It might be begging. They might be held by gangs that are ‘beneath the law’ and forced to be members of those gangs. This, to me, is unacceptable.

How the United States Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from Mexico

The situation with immigrants from North Korean to China is analogous, in some regards, to the situation with immigrants from Mexico to the United States. Immigrants from Mexico are not forced by the United States government into inhumane kinds of labor, but they may find themselves in those kinds of situations … living In dug-out caves in the Earth, for instance. And doing seasonal, migrant labor. Or young women or children may find themselves forced into lives of prostitution by pimps.

One thing we might look at, going forward, is how job training might be offered new immigrants, here in the United States, so as to broaden the scope of job opportunities for which they are eligible. This type of job training is doubly beneficial: It helps raise the living standard of immigrants; and it helps lessen the spiritual burden of human trafficking in the United States and uplift our nation through good works in our community.

The philanthropy we offer those caught in the throes of human trafficking is a kindness we offer our children as well, for they will look forward to a better educated community through whose informed choices may be sculpted a brighter tomorrow for all America.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, I feel that Los Angeles in particular, due to such stressors as homelessness and released felons, faces the spectre of social unrest at present. What to do? I feel we must look at what other countries do when faced with these stressors. We must not turn away from innovative solutions simply because we feel they are beneath us, as Americans.

I feel it is because we feel this: that the lesser good we are able to provide the homeless and released felons is beneath us, and unworthy of them, that we have found ourselves for ten years to be in stalemate as a city.

We are unable to provide the level of benefits and care that has been, with hopeful optimism, voted into California law. Massive problems lie before us, and have done so for 10 years now. California is a Sanctuary State for those fleeing from downright extermination in the crueler states of our great Union.

Though we are that to many, we have not the funds to help those seeking sanctuary in the manner afforded the homeless, the helpless, those seeking shelter, food, and work in days of old.

Here in Los Angeles we must make bold to provide what we may to those who have nothing at all. Though it be against the laws of our nation, and against those of our State, we must do what we can. We must offer what we may. We must open our hearts, still our doubts, and come up with sensible, novel solutions to the new problems that lie before us.

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

Dear Ones,

MISLEADING NATURE OF CDC HIV DATA

Over the years I have written quite a few blogs on the HIV / AIDS global pandemic. Chicken that I am, I feel I have failed to convey my feeling that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is releasing data about the pandemic that greatly misrepresent the difficulties that lie before us as a nation. Perhaps this misrepresentation is intentional; perhaps it is political in nature … and perhaps not. Who can say?

The crux of the matter is that the data the CDC typically presents to the public have to do with disease ‘incidence’ rather than disease ‘prevalence’ or ‘lifetime risk’.

‘INCIDENCE’ of HIV / AIDS

As I understand it, disease ‘incidence’ has to do with how many new cases will be diagnosed next year, or the following year. These data are important to medical doctors, so that they can have sufficient medications on hand for the coming year.

‘PREVALENCE’ or ‘LIFETIME RISK’ of HIV / AIDS

‘Prevalence’, or ‘lifetime risk’ offers data on the likelihood that we and our families will contract HIV / AIDS during our lifetime. These are the data that I feel are hard to find in the CDC documents. Yet these are the data that help us plan for our families’ future.

How Family Wealth Planning for Future Generations Is Affected by HIV Prevalence

For instance, if our children, according to ‘lifetime risk’ data, are likely to contract HIV / AIDS in their lifetime, then we might ask: At what age are they likely to contract the disease?

If they contract it in early childhood, from what I have read, it is apparently likely they will die from it at a young age.

If they contract the disease at about the age of puberty, from what I have read, it is likely they will be unable to bear offspring that live more than a few years.

If our children contract the disease while their children are young, then apparently the risk is high that their young children will contract the disease from their parents through suckling milk, or transmission of bodily fluids while the family has bouts of cold or flu, or through childhood play.

Whether or not our children will contract the disease before they bear children is, I feel, very important to each family’s planning for the future. If there are no grandchildren, then that will make a big difference in the wealth that must be set aside for future generations. In addition, health care costs and the economic impact of sick leave downtime for our infected children and grandchildren is a wealth planning consideration.

How May We Instill Hope in Our Families, Even Though They May Have HIV?

If the lifetime risk of contracting HIV / AIDS is high, either because of lifestyle choices, or because of race or ethnicity, or because of the city or state or region of the United States in which we live, then now would be the time to plan with our children and grandchildren for a future that may involve infection.

Our families need to have some hope to live for, even though they may be infected.

I will say that, in my opinion, the CDC does a great job of glossing over the downside, and providing the upside of life with HIV / AIDS. So families can go to their site to learn that life with HIV is no big deal in the United States, any more.

By that is meant, I feel, that for those who are able to tolerate the drug regimens that have been developed, the prospect of a long and productive life is good. And that is something that might offer hope to our children: They may find that they, or their friends, contract the disease.

Careers Despite HIV. Maybe they may not be able to have families of their own, but they can look forward to fulfilling careers, and maybe good health for quite a long time.

Continuing to Work Despite Blindness. I note that, as of 2001 10-20% of people worldwide who had AIDS were becoming blind in one or both eyes …

Link: “HIV / AIDS and Blindness,” by P. G. Kestelyn and E. T. Cunningham, Jr, Bull World Health Organ 2001, 79(3), 208-213 … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2566369/ ..

Thus, as a nation, we must retool as many industries as possible so that our eyesight-impaired HIV-positive children can continue on with their careers even should they have low vision.
RECENT CDC FIGURES ON HIV LIFETIME RISK

Today I found a pretty good pdf file offered by the CDC, that presents lifetime risk and also age-conditional risk by race and ethnicity, gender, and state. The data are from 2009-2013 …

Link: “Lifetime Risk of a Diagnosis of HIV Infection in the United States,” by Kristen L. Hess, PhD, MPH, Xiaohong Hu, MS, Amy Lansky, PhD, MPH, Jonathan Mermin, MD, and H. Irene Hall, PhD, MPH, HHS Public Access Author Manuscript, Ann. Epidemiol. published in final edited form as: Ann Epidemiol. 2017 April ; 27(4): 238-243, doi:10.1016/j.annepidem.2017.02.003 … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5524204/ ..

By clicking on the above pdf link you can download the document to your computer.

Of special note are the three tables at the end of the document.

Table 1. Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis, by Sex, Race/Ethnicity, and Risk Group, United States

Gender Inequality in Testing for HIV / AIDS. I note the total lifetime risk for men is 1 in 68 people, and for women 1 in 253 people. I believe this has to do with gender inequality in testing for HIV / AIDS. I feel the perception in the medical community is that MSM men are at risk for HIV / AIDS, and so, I feel, doctors are more likely to test men than women.

As I have mentioned priorly, it could be that bisexual men who are dating or married to women and raising families are also at risk, and that their wives and families are at risk and fail to test for HIV – AIDS because they are uninformed about their boyfriends’ or husbands’ exposure to risk.

I would like to see equal gender testing for HIV / AIDS, especially among couples with children where the boyfriend or husband tests positive for HIV. Then the medical community might, a few years from now, reassess the total lifetime risk for women.

Lifetime Risk for Black Men Who Have Sex with Men. I note the lifetime risk of contracting HIV / AIDS is 1 in 2 men. The overall lifetime risk for men who have sex with men is 1 in 6 men. From this I feel that women who want to have families ought to ascertain, before becoming pregnant, whether the prospective fathers in fact prefer to have sex with men. I feel that societal expectations, especially amongst Christians, make it especially difficult for Christian men to disclose this bias to prospective wives.

Given this, I feel all women hoping to have children ask those men they want to be intimate with for HIV test results, keeping in mind that chastity for one month after the last sexual contact is necessary before tests such as Oraquick can provide relatively accurate results. The last I read in the fine print of the Oraquick package was that there was a 10 percent error in this type of saliva test.  HIV blood tests, while more expensive, are a good deal more accurate; they are the best the medical community can offer presently.

Table 2. Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis, by State, United States

From this table, I note a big range of risks, state by state, and in the District of Columbia.

Great Disparity in Lifetime Risk, State by State. For instance, the lifetime risk in Maryland is 1 in 56 people. But the risk in Montana is 1 in 674 people. The other states are in between these two extremes, with Georgia and Florida on the very risky side, and Idaho and North Dakota on the ‘unrisky’ side.

The first thought along these lines, for families who are concerned about HIV infection, might be (and I agree it seems logical) to relocate to a state that has less lifetime risk of infection.

Possible Underreporting of Risk by States for Economic Reasons. Amongst the states, I feel it likely that there may be HIV / AIDS ‘underreporting’, and that this may have to do with the tourist trade, or perceived need to attract new business to one’s home state. If this is true, I hope lifetime risk reporting will become more accurate in the next few years, as our states owe it to their residents to offer accurate figures, so that families can take steps for disease prevention and health care.

Risk in Large Cities. I note the lifetime risk of HIV / AIDS is 1 in 17 people in the District of Columbia, which is the heart of one of our large metropolitan areas. In past blogs, I have asked for a breakdown of lifetime risk for our large cities, as the very high risk in the District of Columbia may in fact indicate high risk in other large United States cities as well.

Table 3. 10-Year Age-Conditional Risk (1 in n) of HIV Diagnosis Among HIV-Free Males and Females, Aged 20-50 Years, United States

Young Men Who Have Sex with Men Are at Greater Risk of New HIV Diagnosis. From these data I see that overall, it is four times more likely that men who have sex with men, and who are 20 years of age will get a new diagnosis of HIV than will men who have sex with men, and who are 50 years of age.

New HIV Diagnosis Risk for Young Men Who Have Sex with Men Varies Greatly by Race / Ethnicity. For black men who have sex with men, the risk of new diagnosis of HIV is 1 in 4 at age 20 and 1 in 26 at age 50. For Hispanic men who have sex with men, the figures are 1 in 13 at age 20, and 1 in 40 at age 50. For White men who have sex with men, the figures are 1 in 39 at age 20 and 1 in 79 at age 50.

New HIV Diagnosis Risk for People Who Inject Drugs is Much Less Than for Men Who Have Sex with Men. Also, I see that people who inject drugs and are 20 years of age are somewhat less likely to get a new diagnosis of HIV than people who are 50 years of age; and that the overall new diagnosis risk for people who inject drugs is, across the age spectrum, very much less than for men who have sex with men.

New HIV Diagnosis Risk for Young Women Who Inject Drugs Is Twice as Great as for Young Men. Overall, for men who inject drugs the new diagnosis risk is 1 in 220 at age 20, and 1 in 167 at age 50. For women who inject drugs the new diagnosis risk is 1 in 108 at age 20 and 1 in 112 at age 50. That would mean that amongst people who inject drugs, women 20 years of age are about twice as likely to get a new HIV diagnosis as are men that age.

Can We Extrapolate That HIV Diagnosis Risk for Young Women is Twice as Great as That for Young Men? As both men and women who inject drugs know they are at risk, it seems to me fair to assume they are testing for HIV in a gender equal way. Thus the figures for new diagnosis risk for men and women who inject drugs might help provide an answer regarding the true new diagnosis risk for women who fail to test because they do not know their boyfriends or husbands are having sex with men.

We might go with the assumption that women who are dating or married to men who have sex with men have twice as much risk of new HIV diagnosis as the men. Amongst 20-year-old men having sex with men the new diagnosis risk is 1 in 15. Projecting from the drug injection risk, 20-year-old women who have sex with men who also have sex with men might be expected to have a new diagnosis risk of 1 in 8 (twice as risky as for the men).

I arrive at this estimate by creating a similar ratio, like this …

  • New diagnosis risk at 20 for men versus women who inject drugs = 1/220 for men versus 1 in 109 for women (about twice as risky for women)
  • Extrapolating new diagnosis risk at 20 for men versus women in relationships where the man has sex with men = 1 in 15 for men versus 1 in 8 (about twice as risky) for women

Importance of Gender Equality in HIV / AIDS Testing of Young People. The above estimate highlights how important gender equality in HIV / AIDS testing may be right now, as regards testing for young women.

From the above estimate we might also extrapolate the number of men who are not disclosing their bisexual lifestyle. If in fact it proves true that twice as many young women as young men, overall, are getting new HIV diagnoses, then it seems to me possible that as many as half of American men are engaging in sex with men as well as with their female sexual partners and wives.

What otherwise would account for young women having a higher incidence of new diagnoses than young men? I have read online that many young women have sex with two men by about age 20. If one of these two had HIV, and gave it to the young woman, then her new male partner would be at risk of infection as well. If this were to be so, then the risk for young women might be from young men who also have sex with men. And the risk for young men might be from having sex with either young men who have sex with men, or from having sex with young women who have done so. Do you not feel this to be true?

If so, then the feat that lies before the medical profession would be to find the most effective way of gathering information from young HIV positive men regarding their female sexual partners, and of persuading the men to allow their female sexual partners to test.

Blessings to all,

In love, light and joy,

The Gatorade Kid
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
25 October 2019
Soundtrack and Words

 

There was a kid
who lived outside
He lived right behind
The Iron Horse Inn

When the snows came
He would beg those within
for a chance to stay warm
from dusk to dawn.

The rent he paid was
a goofy grin
and if they required it –
a night’s love-in

One day I heard
a car drive by
I heard, offhand:
Would you like a ride?

and the kid said: Sure!

They stopped just offroad
in an evergreen aisle.
The man at the wheel
said with a smile:

Kid, wanna go the mile?
I can make it worth your while!

and the kid said: Sure!

Then I saw the boy’s face
contorted in pain
Oh! Why does it feel so strange?

He fell down bleeding by a back tire
On the ground down snow
‘Twixt the car and the lane

Two men guffawed
and drove away

The next day I walked out
my motel door
hoping to see
the boy’s face once more

I saw his Gatorade lying there
in a snowdrift
by a new guest’s door

It was tipped sideways.
It was half full –
the liquid bright blue
on the shoveled snow

Next day I walked out
with a flutter of hope
like a blue bird tangled
up in my heart

I saw the Gatorade
sunk in the snow
and my heart checked out
of the Iron Horse Inn.

. . . . .

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

On Growing Older . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 8 June 2019; published on 20 June 2019

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on eldercare. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would mention something about growing older, and how it is like being a young child again. Of course, everybody knows that they call older age a ‘second childhood’.  But as far as the School of Theosophy teachings are concerned, we could think of the different types of a human being; specifically, the Lower Mind (or ‘Lower Mental Body’) and the Higher Mind (or ‘Higher Mental Body’).

As you may know from my writings, the Lower Mind has to do with the gut brain, and the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon, that I have mentioned in other blogs. The Higher Mind is the brain’s mind, and the one that we use … for better or for worse … during most of our adult life.

If you think about how a child is, and how we treat a child, a child does not have rational ability, or analytical ability, to speak of. And the same is true of an older senior citizen. Both are using their gut brain, otherwise known as their Lower Mental Body, or their Lower Mind.

The way of thinking of the gut brain has to do with the microbes in the gut. An older senior citizen, like a very young child, is capable of great extremes of emotion: very great anger … ‘temper tantrum’ stuff … or very great joy; happiness in the moment, in the Eternal Now. In this regard, an older senior citizen is capable of Awareness … the Soul’s Awareness in the Now.

In today’s senior care facilities, the wonderful qualities of the senior citizens’ mental approach are overlooked, and in fact, even amongst kin … brothers, sisters, and children … the way of thinking of the older senior citizen is often criticized and spoken of negatively. And so, the senior citizen can become very sad because of that.

My suggestion is that we look at the senior citizens as if they were young children again, and treat them with that same loving kindness with which we treat our children. I think that will be closer to the truth of the matter; for, even if a senior citizen has what we term Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, they are capable of interacting with us on a level of childlike innocence that we were heretofore unable to experience with them.

So that is something to look at: Let us treat our older senior citizens in the same loving way that we treat our very young children.

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

Ground Zero: How Will an Insolvent California House Its Homeless? . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 21  May 2019

  • WHAT IS CALIFORNIA REALISTICALLY ABLE TO PROVIDE ITS HOMELESS RIGHT NOW?
    • Favelas as Housing?
    • Cardboard Packing Crate, or Old Tire Housing
    • Free Zone with Offer of Landfill Building Materials
  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

It is possible that the slow roll of the HIV – AIDS pandemic will provide relief from the California housing crisis over time, by slowing or halting population growth over the next 10 or 20 years. But in the meantime, we have a homeless problem that is impossible to solve, using the current measuring stick for adequate housing, because the solutions put forth are too costly, considering the state of the California budget.

Have we not done next to nothing for some years now, because we have not the money on hand to live up to our expectations in housing the homeless? And in the meantime, they are suffering and dying on our streets, right beneath our gaze.

Clearly, we must give up our grand expectations, and find what we are able to do, and do that … even if it be the humblest gesture … right now. Let us start from what we are able to do, rather than what we think we ought to do … And provide some form of housing, no matter how humble, for our unhoused population.

WHAT IS CALIFORNIA REALISTICALLY ABLE TO PROVIDE ITS HOMELESS RIGHT NOW?

Considering the harsh reality of the existence of an uncountable number of Californians housed in the dirt, and working in the earth: What can we do right now, starting from ground zero, to improve that situation? We might look at what other countries too poor to help their indigent in a grand way yet may offer as Stage One housing.

Favelas as Housing? For instance, at the very least, can we provide for our homeless land set aside for a favela-type existence, as is available in the poor sectors of Brazilian cities?

Image: “The favelas of Niteroi, Brazil – March 2011″ … https://i.pinimg.com/736x/78/b4/02/78b402c949b17c32daacd2918c6ff2db–favelas-brazil.jpg ..

Cardboard Packing Crate, or Old Tire Housing. If cardboard, packing crate, or old-tire housing works for the unhomed in Tijuana, maybe we could provide that type of housing here …

Image: “Tijuana Houses: Slums and City” … https://i.pinimg.com/originals/aa/2a/b2/aa2ab250bc938f04d2da53d11c090dac.jpg ..

Free Zone with Offer of Landfill Building Materials. Are we able to rummage through our landfills, and find building materials that they can use? Is this a possibility?

Might we establish a free zone, where they can build and squat? And might we haul in building materials from our dumps so that they can use them?

CONCLUSION

This I see as an urgently necessary in the solution of the homeless dilemma: To find the homeless a safe place to be, no matter how humble. We must start where we are, and do what we can, even if it be no more than that which the underdeveloped nations are able to provide their homeless and indigent populations.

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

  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

Here in the United States, we are faced with lack of funds to deal with big problems of homelessness, unemployment, underemployment, and poverty-line living. For some years now, these difficult problems have been before us, and felicitous solutions, to date, do not avail.

Why is it that we have not found viable, long-term solutions to these problems? I feel it is because we have not felt desperate enough, or perhaps innovative enough, to look outside the envelope, and see what other nations that have been facing similar problems have come up with in terms of solutions.

I took a look at the United States Central Intelligence Agency’s “World Factbook,” hoping to come up with some off-the-wall offerings, and came up with the example of the dire poverty faced by North Korea, and its institution of Forced Labor for public projects. Here is part of what I found out …

HOW NORTH KOREA DEALS WITH INCURABLE POVERTY AND STARVATION

As I see it, in North Korea, the problem is intractable, long-term, incurable poverty. I have for you this quotation from the “CIA World Factbook,” with regard to the grim facts of the North Korean economy …

“North Korea, one of the world’s most centrally directed and least open economies, faces chronic economic problems. Industrial capital stock is nearly beyond repair as a result of years of underinvestment, shortages of spare parts, and poor maintenance. Large-scale military spending and development of its ballistic missile and nuclear program severely draws off resources needed for investment and civilian consumption. Industrial and power outputs have stagnated for years at a fraction of pre-1990 levels. Frequent weather-related crop failures aggravated chronic food shortages caused by on-going systemic problems, including a lack of arable land, collective farming practices, poor soil quality, insufficient fertilization, and persistent shortages of tractors and fuel.

“The mid 1990s through mid 2000s were marked by severe famine and widespread starvation. Significant food aid was provided by the international community through 2009. Since that time, food assistance has declined significantly. In the last few years, domestic corn and rice production has improved, although domestic production does not fully satisfy demand. A large portion of the population continues to suffer from prolonged malnutrition and poor living conditions. Since 2002, the government has allowed semi-private markets to begin selling a wider range of goods, allowing North Koreans to partially make up for diminished public distribution system rations. It also implemented changes in the management process of communal farms in an effort to boost agricultural output …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook,  North Korea” … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain.

FORCED LABOR IN NORTH KOREA AS A BARTER SUBSTITUTE FOR THE COINED TAX SYSTEM

Rather than asking people, who have nothing, for taxes, instead North Korea is conscripting people into forced labor situations for nothing … for free … to help with government projects …

… North Korea is a source country for men, women, and children who are subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking; many North Korean workers recruited to work abroad under bilateral contracts with foreign governments, most often Russia and China, are subjected to forced labor and do not have a choice in the work the government assigns them, are not free to change jobs, and face government reprisals if they try to escape or complain to outsiders; tens of thousands of North Koreans, including children, held in prison camps are subjected to forced labor, including logging, mining, and farming; many North Korean women and girls, lured by promises of food, jobs, and freedom, have migrated to China illegally to escape poor social and economic conditions only to be forced into prostitution, domestic service, or agricultural work through forced marriages.” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in persons … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain.

To some degree, the ‘forcing of labor’ in North Korea, I feel in some instances may be a substitute for the coined tax system … It is more like a ‘barter’ tax, you know? We might look at this practice and offhandedly think of it as a completely evil thing, whereas, in fact, it may be a necessary thing there, so as to keep the economy alive, in a situation where everyone faces starvation whenever (as is often the case) weather conditions are not good.

HOW THE UNITED STATES EMPLOYS FORCED LABOR IN OTHER GUISE

I feel that we have various forms of forced labor here in the United States … forced labor that may be less injurious to human rights, but nevertheless forced labor. It is just that we cushion it with other terms … more aesthetic terms … according to our ideas of how things ought to be. Here are two kinds of ‘forced labor’ that we look favorably upon in the United States …

Community Service in Lieu of Prison Time

For instance, North Korea has forced labor part of the year … during which the people in the towns have to work for the government for free or for almost nothing … That has analogies to community service at, say, $40 a day, in lieu of prison time for Coloradans.

Prison ‘Work Release’ Programs

Then, I noticed in Mendocino County, California, there are various prison ‘work release’ programs … home detention, work release, and work furlough …

ADVANTAGES OF OFFERING FELONS RURAL AND WILDERNESS WORK CAMP OPPORTUNITIES

Work Camps as Work Ethic Education

I recall that, in Russia and China, they think of forced labor as a way of educating people with regard to the work ethic … inculcating a notion of being productive members of society. And we might consider it like that too.

If we cannot house the felons in urban prisons, we could expand our programs to house them in work camps in rural or wilderness areas. These work camps might be viewed as offering education in the work ethic, and in that way, helping felons to qualify for good jobs after their release.

On Offering Habitual Offenders ‘Rough and Tumble’ Jobs Far From Urban Centers

In addition to providing work ethic education, work camp job experience would likely provide improved physical conditioning. This might help released felons find ‘rough and tumble’ jobs far from urban centers, occupations such as lumberjacking, or tramp steamer crew, for instance. Maybe, work in the mines, or in the deserts, or on oil rigs. There might be a segment of felons to whom rough and tumble jobs appeal; and this appeal might decrease recidivism.

There may be felons with many offenses, and whom we are unable to keep in prison. Yet if they are released, they might look for criminal work, and not wish to integrate into the general community. In some cases, they might fall into the category ‘antisocial personalities’. In such instances, it might be good if they found work away from the general population.

If California is unable to house multiple offenders, we might also consider offering those serving time the option to become a free person, or a semi-free person, in an occupation that is far from the general public … where the released prisoners cannot hurt the general public.

CONCLUSION

My thought as to whether forced labor might successfully be employed in the United States is this: Considering the American way of life, forced labor could never succeed here if it ruthlessly trammels human rights. I do feel, on the other hand, that the choice of modified versions of forced labor … as amongst the prison populations, or for released felons, or for the indigent … might be offered as an alternative, a free will choice, that might prove appealing, were its benefits to be properly laid out, and then offered by way of explanation to those undertaking it.

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

Dear Ones,

This is a call to action regarding the religious practice of mortification of the flesh, including self-flagellation, that some Christian denominations retain as a historical tradition. In noospheric tenor, these practices tie into the denser energy streams of sadomasochistic sexual practices and snuff sex that have, of late, ransacked the noosphere of Los Angeles, especially on the weekends.

Aside from the link-in with historic practices of fleshly mortification why is it that this relatively rare nuance of sexual behavior is such a standout in the Los Angeles noosphere of late? For more, I turned to this publication …

Link: “The Psychology of Sadomasochism: An Attempt to Explain Sadism and Masochism,” by Neil Burton, M.D., posted 17 August 2014, in Psychology Today … https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hide-and-seek/201408/the-psychology-sadomasochism ..

From that I learned that many seemingly innocuous forms of behavior, such as tickling, infantilizing, and love-biting … and perhaps, I would add, taunting and bullying, as are oft found online these days … play into the darker, denser energy streams of the relatively recherché world of sadomasochism. Thus we are all, willy-nilly, for the most part unwittingly, involved in the clearing of these dense energy strands from the Los Angeles noosphere at present.

My appeal today is to those who are consciously able to choose whether they will add to these denser noospheric energies of sadomasochism. I make this appeal because, as an intuitive person, I find these energies very difficult to bear, especially on the weekends in Los Angeles, and most particularly so during times of solar storm … even geostorms as mild as that which we experienced last night …

In order to keep our personal Body of Light (aura, or energy field) pure and bright, I feel it is important to avoid injury to the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit itself, in my sense of it, is injured by mortification of the flesh.

LET THERE BE NO RETURN TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR OF OLD

It is the work of a Christian to discover the Grace of God within, or so I believe. What can be farther from that goal than the undercurrents that apparently evolved, over the centuries, in organizations such as the historic Knights Templar? Having read this no-holds barred account of that evolution …

Link: “The Dark History of the Knights Templar,” from “Knights Templar’s Saga” at theunjustmedia.com … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/templars/knights_templars01.htm

… as well as this more tempered account …

Link: “Knights Templar,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_TemplarMore tempered.

… I have some concerns about the renaissance of the Knights Templar tradition by newly formed groups here in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States.

How is it that, in ages gone by, sincere members of devout religious orders have fallen prey to emanations of self-hatred and hatred of others through organizations founded for the best of reasons?

The answer, I feel, lies in the slight affinity aroused in the body to hatred of others through the practice of self-mortification …

Link: “Flagellation: Religious Practice,” written by Geoffrey Abbott, in Encyclopaedia Britannica … https://www.britannica.com/topic/flagellation ..

Through this ‘toehold’ of hatred of the body, flows forth into the noosphere hatred in all its forms: Hatred of women, abuse of children, envy at the sexual prowess of other men; hatred of this teaching or that of one’s own church, or of those of other Christian denominations; and finally, hatred even of the Light of God within, and turning to the abomination of Satanic ritual.

WILL PLAGUE COMPEL US TO FLAGELLANT PARADES?

In the mid-13th Century, processions of self-flagellants took place in central Italy with intent to mitigate a devastating plague. In current times we face another such plague, the scourge of HIV / AIDS, which leaves those of our children who are so infected unable to produce viable offspring.

In our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., according to Centers for Disease Control statistics published in 2016, the lifetime risk of contracting HIV was 1 in 13 people …

Link: “2016 HIV Lifetime Risk Statistics from Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-c3f ..

Since 2016, no state-by-state statistics have been published. Yet the epidemic, I feel, is cresting in the congested urban areas of the United States, or will soon do so.

Until statistics are caught up, we cannot definitively know where we stand with regard to the HIV / AIDS pandemic. Meanwhile, shall we once more fall to the practice of publicly mistreating our bodies … whether in our streets, or on the silver screen?

ON PERFECTING WORKS OF CORPOREAL MERCY

The answer to the social stresses now testing the tensile strength of our democratic way of life lies not in hatred, not in acts of terrorism whether ultra right or ultra left, not in pogroms, not in vigilante justice, not in wanton waste of life, but in a learned and temperately discerning approach to the problems at hand.

Let us pay utmost respect to our bodies, the abiding temples of God’s loving kindness to us. It is this, the virtue of Christian charity … to ourselves as well as to others … that holds the answer to action in the world during this, the cusp of the HIV / AIDS pandemic.

In the Book of Matthew, Christ says …

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” –Matthew 6:16 (KJV, public domain)

I am put in mind of the biography of pastor Martin Rinkart, whose example I find  inspiring in these times of worldwide hardship …

The Heroic Works of Charity of German Pastor Martin Rinkart During the Great Pestilence

Martin Rinkart (23 April 1586, Eilenburg – 8 December 1649) was a pastor who ministered to his flock in Eilenburg, a walled German town, during the Thirty Years’ War, 1618-1648.

In 1637, when the town was already worn down by war, the Great Pestilence took place. At that time the town of Eilenburg had four ministers. People from the surrounding area who were suffering from epidemic and famine sought refuge in Pastor Rinkart’s town.

As the plague-ridden entered the town, the townspeople became infected. One of the town’s ministers, no doubt overcome by a sense of impending doom, fled to healthier climes. The two other ministers stood by Pastor Rinkart, who saw them buried.

In the end, Pastor Rinkart was the only pastor left in Eilenburg. He conducted services for over 4,000 people, sometimes as many as 40 or 50 a day. In May of 1637 his wife died, which must have been a grievous personal blow to him. By the end of that year, the dead were being buried in trenches, and there were no services for them.

Under the most harrowing of personal circumstances, Martin Rinkart composed this uplifting hymn of gratitude for God’s myriad acts of loving kindness, a hymn that is often sung even today …

The examples of the many great saints of our Christian faith are like a beacon lighting our way in these difficult times. Like them, let us maintain hope in the face of the trials that stand before us. Let the heartbreak of many in our community lift us to faith in God’s sweet intention towards our Souls. Insofar as we may, let us speak to the pure Spirit within, so that we may find the courage to face calamity with equanimity, and the fortitude steadfastly to practice the Christian corporal works of mercy.

Let us feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned, ransom those held captive. and bury the dead.

There is a passage in Matthew 25 that speaks most poignantly to this time of Ascension on Earth. This passage brilliantly limns the manner in which we may choose to address the momentous days that lie before us, through works of mercy practiced in loving remembrance of Christ …

Matthew 25:31-46 (KJV, public domain)

31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 “And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 “When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 “Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 “I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 “Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Surely none has spoken, nor likely ever will speak, more eloquently or to the point, than Christ himself has done. This passage sets us on a sure path through faith in Him, even in the face of  the most devastating hailstorm of temporal sorrow.

CONCLUSION

In these days of woe, shall we stand with Christ and act on his behalf? In truth, what we may do for the disempowered, the disadvantaged, and the disenfranchised people of Los Angeles, is what we may be privileged to do for Christ Himself in this lifetime.

It is the Body of Christ Himself to whom we minister. It is He whom we feed, whom we clothe, for whom we provide potable water, for whom we find lodging, whom we help to find a sure path after release from prison, and whom we seek to ransom from malefic entities … whether human or clothed in mists beyond our ken … who hold them prisoner.

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

Call to Action: The Spectre of Social Unrest in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

At the level of the borderline poverty working family in Los Angeles today, there is a yearning for home ownership that is part and parcel of the American dream. Yet because of the high entry bar to home ownership, few blue collar working families can hope to achieve this dream.

This gives rise to hopelessness regarding the American way of life, for masses of people who feel that home ownership will be forever beyond their grasp. It is just such feelings of hopelessness that cause lack of faith in the American way of life, and can promulgate social unrest; even thoughts of revolution and of more even distribution of property through Communism.

Social unrest threatens those who own homes, those who have higher paying jobs, and those who offer employment here in Los Angeles. Thus it is in the best interests of those of us who have vested interests in this city, to offer hope to Los Angeles families who are economically less advantaged, whether they be renters of apartments or of rooms.

Here are two cost-effective ways to mitigate the spectre of social unrest in Los Angeles …

  • For borderline poverty working families who are renters, Los Angeles might offer apartment buildings with a ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ option. This option might be promoted through a State of California or local tax credit to apartment building owners.
  • In addition we could offer a Los Angeles or California monthly lottery prize of a home, so that the American dream of home ownership might be laid out and monthly publicized as a possibility, even for those who are as yet unable to obtain ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ housing.

I feel these two proposals, which are relatively inexpensive and might easily be embarked upon, would appeal to both the inchoate yearning and the realistic plans of Los Angeles families who hope for home ownership … and that they would do so in a manner both concrete and newsworthy.

It is the American dream of home ownership that keeps us strong as a people. No family among us that has the heart to work and to contribute to our community, ought suffer despondency in this regard. Let us raise high the standard of hope for a better tomorrow, for the sake of this great city we all … whether propertied or as yet renting … love and cherish.

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

Would Nanobot ‘Satellite Rape’ as an Anti-Terrorist Measure Be Unconstitutional? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

INCREASING INCIDENCE OF COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION FORECAST FOR THE COMING TIMES

“These times are forecast to include cognitive dysfunction, and we can anticipate this may take various twists and turns, including …

  • quasi-Illegal or else ‘out there’, ‘cutting edge’ human social experiments,
  • and a panicky or anxious sense of urgency about the need for them, despite scant outcomes research,

“These types of human social experiments may be a symptom of the cognitive dissonance for those facing anxiety attacks while in leadership positions.” –from Link: “Urban Legend: Transgender Surgery Required for Felon Release?!” by Alice B. Clagett, written on 2 March 2018; revised 3 March 2018 and 8 April 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8qI ..

TOTALLY ‘OUT THERE’ ASTRAL RUMORS OF NANO ROBOTICS USED FOR ‘SATELLITE RAPE’ THROUGH GOVERNMENT GRANTS

On the astral plane, I have heard of a grant for mind control and emotional ‘take-down’ through sexual stimulation using human experimental subjects who have not volunteered for the project, and using forged patient consent forms.

Also, of a second grant for mind control using nano robotics or ‘nanobots’ from Indonesia for mental induction of a sexual nature, through what might be termed nano robotics (‘nanobots’) and  ‘satellite-rape’. The objective being euphemistically termed “Crowd Control.”

Clearly this is the stuff of science fiction pulp fiction; were it to be a U.S. government secret project, it would be psych evals all round! Not!

COULD A PUTATIVE INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST THREAT JUSTIFY CONTRAVENTION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF UNITED STATES CITIZENS?

Hypothesizing, it seems likely to me that astral rumors about such grants might have to do with mass media hype regarding the danger of foreign nations using nano robotics for ‘satellite rape’ against United States citizens. It seem possible to me that the anxious mind of a government agent charged with prevention of terrorism might construe forced experiments on American citizens to be a necessary anti-terrorist measure.

On the other hand, we have to consider our human rights as American citizens. For instance, the Declaration of Independence sets forth our unalienable right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” I further note that “…the Fifth Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution declare that governments cannot deprive any person of “life, liberty, or property” without due process of law. Also, Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person”. –from Link: “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life,_Liberty_and_the_pursuit_of_Happiness ..

It seems clear to me that manipulation of the minds and emotions of United States citizens through use of nanobots and ‘satellite rape’ could be seen as infringement of our ‘liberty’, to use one of the above terms.

In other words, if nanotech were to be used to control our emotions and thoughts, then how could we be termed ‘free’ or ‘at liberty’ to act, of our own free will, in pursuit of our own happiness?

How might we know what our own happiness might be, if we were to be compelled to sexual intercourse … perhaps with strangers in the street … or even to a previously unthinkable life of sex trafficking or sexual solicitation … simply because of a misperception, by someone in authority here in America, that an international terrorist threat might justify their agency’s abrogation of our civil liberties?

In the cold light of reason, such a manner of holding the anti-terrorist mandate might be construed as an act of terrorism against the American people. This, then would be a topic to be undertaken and devised at the highest level of our United States Department of Justice.

The notion that such an act might be condoned in light of nanobot and ‘satellite rape’ terrorist tactics by other governments would place such a polemic in the international court of appeal. Thus the issue would need to be placed in the docket of the International Court of Justice, the ‘World Court’, which settles legal disputes through the United Nations.

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

On Honoring the Wishes of the Terminally Ill . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 8 February 2019
Previously titled: Notice: On Honoring the Wishes of the Terminally Ill

Dear Ones,

The impetus for this story was an astral story that was circulating through the noosphere while I was living in Colorado in 2015. Whether this story had to do with Colorado, or with some other part of the United States, or whether it might have had to do with movies or television shows that were being viewed at that time, I do not know.

The astral story had to do with a middle-aged woman and a male accomplice who were euthanizing elderly men with memory problems in a rest home, or maybe in various rest homes. In this hypothetical story, family members of these elderly men were presented with a cost analysis comparing the cost of caring for the men in the rest home for a few more years, compared to the cost of euthanasia.

As the astral story went, the first 12 old men were euthanized at a cost of $20,000 each, paid to the male accomplice and accomplished by the middle-aged woman, whose profession had to do with health care, or was tangential to health care.

The following year, which would have been 2016, according to the astral story, there was less demand for euthanasia in the geographic area where they worked, so the price was lowered to $12,000 per act of euthanasia, and 8 more elderly men were euthanized.

After that, there was no more demand for euthanasia of elderly men in that geographic locale … My hypothesis about this is that there was no more ‘product’ … no more elderly men with memory problems in the area; or maybe that the families of the remaining elderly men cared too much for them to agree to euthanasia.

My personal stance towards euthanasia is that it ought not be done, under any circumstances. My feeling is that everyone has an optimal ‘death date’ … or maybe several optimal ‘death dates’ prearranged through agreement of their Soul and their guardian angels, in alignment with God’s will.

I feel it would be best to leave that date and time to God, and not intervene, thinking that our own will is more important than that of God. I feel that, when families agree to euthanasia, this is more often for their own comfort and relief, than on behalf of the family member who is being euthanized.

As my mother said to me in my youth, young people sometimes say that they would like to put an end to their lives if they become very old … but, she would add, the older they get, the more fiercely they hold on to their hope of tomorrow, no matter whether it might be a year, a month, a week, or just one day. And then she would smile understandingly.

From that I gathered it is good to understand things from the point of view of the people who are going through the ordeal of dying, and do our best to help them achieve their hopes and dreams regarding their final days.

Because the astral stories I was hearing in 2015 ran counter to my own feelings on the subject of honoring the elderly, I sought spiritual counsel regarding this topic of euthanasia while I was visiting in Colorado.

The person I spoke with said that euthanasia of the elderly is seldom legally prosecuted. His tone of voice made me feel that he felt this was morally wrong, and I feel it to be wrong as well. I hope that the consciousness of people, globally, will soon rise to the point of honoring the wishes of the terminally ill, insofar as they are able.

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

Dear Ones,

CONSPIRACY THEORY: NANOBOTTING OF PAST PRESIDENT OBAMA SO THAT MONSANTO COULD CONTROL THE WORLD!

Hate Bomb Malware

I had the weirdest dream in 2013, that past President Obama had been nanoteched up with a nanobot that pulled in a carefully thought out Army-Navy spy satellite anti-Jihad black ops program, a form of psychic-cyber mind control aimed at terrorizing Muslims into believing that, if they felt lovingly toward their Imams and the men in their mosques, then a bomb would explode in their hearts, and kill everyone in the mosque.

That a rogue Army-Navy guy … a Republican, maybe? … had got hold of the program, and, after bickering with lobbyists from the blue chip stock companies, settled on quite a good deal with Monsanto …

Link: “Monsanto Protection Act: Does the Monsanto Protection Act create a ‘precedent-setting limitation on judicial review of genetically-engineered crops’?” … https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/monsanto-protection-act/ ..

Result of which was nanobotting of the president, who, according to this wild nightmare, could not get out of office without selling the world food supply to Monsanto. Result being the Monsanto Protection Act rider.

Talk about Snopesville. I will never eat arugala again.

Anyway but, ever since then I have felt for past President Obama. Who in the world is not affected by that darned notion that we will be dead in the water if we truly love someone?

PSYCHIC CRIME AND BLACK OPS: ARE THESE AGAINST INTERNATIONAL LAW?

Rules of War: Do Not Target Civilians

I have been reading about the Rules of War …

Link: “What are the rules of war and why do they matter?” by International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC),19 October 2016 … https://www.icrc.org/en/document/what-are-rules-of-war-Geneva-Conventions ..

I found out that it is against international law for civilians to be targeted in warfare. As Ascension proceeds, the world is rising to telepathic Awareness. Understanding of the nature of the noosphere, and of the formation and movement of thought forms throughout the noosphere, is no longer limited to a few select people with clair abilities …

Link: “Boomerang Effect of Evil Thought Forms,” by the Theosophists, published on 11 May 2015 …  https://wp.me/p2Rkym-3cX ..

Our Thought Forms Affect Everyone on Earth

Now everyone on Earth is beginning to understand that the thought forms we think affect everyone else on Earth. The Butterfly Effect has confirmed this notion, although it has not yet been taken to heart, on a wide scale, in a positive sense, and its implications with regard to the collective, worldwide clouds of thought, both conscious and unconscious, have yet to be fully utilized.

Global Latitudinal Impact of Thought Forms Carried by Circulating Electric Charge That Precedes Dawn and Follows Sunset

About Thought Forms. Thought forms are everywhere on Earth. These thought forms have an electromagnetic component; what is termed in the School of Theosophy manas (mind) and kama (desire). –from Citation: “Thought Forms,” by Annie Besant and Charles Webster Leadbeater, 1905, pp 19-20. Through intuition I would add that manas corresponds to the electric field, and kama to the magnetic force (the two making up electromagnetism).

I say this because I have read about that electricity is important in the function of the neurons which comprise the human nervous system; and that desire has a magnetic quality of attracting to oneself the object of desire. As well, through the practice of yoga I have found that building the human magnetic force results in good luck and charismatic appeal; loss of this built-up magnetic force has the opposite effect. (This points up the importance of practicing yoga daily.)

Personal Experience of Inrushing Thought Forms Before Dawn and Just After Sunset. I have personal psychic intel regarding an inrushing of thought forms into my own mental bodies just before sunrise; I experience this so strongly that I find it uncomfortable to be sleeping till sunrise. I find it easier to deal with the jumbled influx of other people’s thought forms while wide awake and either standing or sitting, so that my spine is erect.

I have also noticed that thought forms carrying negative emotions are more likely to swoop into my mind just after sunset. Because being near the computer screen and accompanying electronics weakens my personal electromagnetic field, making it more susceptible to impingement by these negative thought forms from other people, I generally stay away from my computer and other electronics in the evening after sunset.

It must be that the electric component of thought forms causes them to be carried along with the circulating electric charge that precedes sunrise and follows sunset on Earth. If this be true, then thought forms targeted at an Islamic nation are carried by the latitudinally circulating electric charge that follows sunset, from the Middle East, through the semi-somnambulent, prime time television watching nations, and back to their point of origin within a 24-hour period. Then, they continue circulating through the noosphere, day after day.

Scientific Research on Earth’s Circulating Electric Field. Here is what science I could muster to back up what I learned through electromagnetic field (EMF) clair sensitivity  …

Earth’s Electric Ring Current. “A ring current is an electric current carried by charged particles trapped in a planet’s magnetosphere. It is caused by the longitudinal drift of energetic (10–200 keV) particles. … Earth’s ring current is responsible for shielding the lower latitudes of the Earth from magnetospheric electric fields. It therefore has a large effect on the electrodynamics of geomagnetic storms. The ring current system consists of a band, at a distance of 3 to 8 RE  … [Earth radius], which lies in the equatorial plane and circulates clockwise around the Earth (when viewed from the north). The particles of this region produce a magnetic field in opposition to the Earth’s magnetic field and so an Earthly observer would observe a decrease in the magnetic field in this area …. The negative deflection of the Earth’s magnetic field due to the ring current is measured by the Dst index.

“The ring current energy is mainly carried around by the ions, most of which are protons. However, one also sees alpha particles in the ring current, a type of ion that is plentiful in the solar wind. In addition, a certain percentage are O+ oxygen ions, similar to those in the ionosphere of Earth, though much more energetic. This mixture of ions suggests that ring current particles probably come from more than one source.” –from Link: “Ring Current” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_current … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

Increased Density of Eastward Electric Field Just Before Dawn. Apparently there may be a similar depletion of equatorial plasma density, accompanied by a large electric field increase just before dawn. –from Link: “Observations of the generation of eastward equatorial electric fields near dawn,” by M. C. Kelley, F. S. Rodrigues, R. F. Pfaff, and J. Klenzing, in Ann. Geophys., 32, 1169–1175, 2014 … www.ann-geophys.net/32/1169/2014/

Increased Density of Eastward Electric Field for An Hour After Sunset. There is decreased equatorial plasma density and increased density in the eastward electric field for about an hour after sunset. –from Citation: “Ionospheric Space Weather: Longitude Dependence and Lower Atmosphere Forcing,” edited by Timothy Fuller-Rowell, Endawoke Yizengaw, Patricia H. Doherty, Sunanda Basu (in Google Books) … See: 12.1. Introduction, paragraph 4

Will Humankind Rise Up Against ‘Black Ops’?

As humankind begins to understand the effect ‘black ops’ such as conspiracy theory malware that subverts Islam for the sake of corporate oil interests, will we rise up against psychic hate crimes, in the same way that we speak out against hate crimes in the physical world?

If putative ‘black ops’ thought forms full of hatred are sent, say, from Los Angeles to the Middle East, then will these thoughts of hatred not damage the minds of all the people along the way, between these two geographic locations? Would this not, in a psychic sense, be an infringement of the international law that civilians not be targeted in warfare?

SOURCES OF VIOLENT THOUGHT FORMS IN OUR WORLD

Whether these thought forms gather momentum or loose it, depends on the daily load of violent thought forms added to or subtracted from the noosphere. This applies especially to …

  • Violence in mass media,
  • Corporate lobbying efforts amongst our government officials,
  • Wars, including black ops, and
  • Hate groups that may pass under the radar in our native lands.

RELIGIOUS RIVALRY AS A CAUSE OF VIOLENCE

In a less strident manner, intergroup rivalry, especially rivalry between religious groups, adds to the daily load of violent thought forms in the noosphere.

By my lights, the great religions of the world might more aptly seek points of interfaith agreement than reasons to begin terrorist campaigns, one against the other, whether through thought forms or through overt acts of war.

WE ARE ONE WORLD

This is one noosphere. Our thought forms create our noosphere. Let us dream of peace, harmony, and unity on our beautiful, blue boat home …

Dear Ones,

ARE CALIFORNIA HOUSING COSTS UNREALISTICALLY HIGH?

Apparently, California housing costs are the highest in America …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office, 17 March 2015 … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

This is odd, because people are less in need of housing in California than elsewhere in the nation, because of the mild climate here. Why are housing prices so high?

Could it be that the housing codes here unrealistic, considering the influx of homeless and migrant workers, (1) and the release of felons onto the community due to inadequate funds to keep them in prison? (2)

EFFECT OF LOS ANGELES WATER PRICES ON HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

Stopgap measures have been initiated to fund desperately needed Los Angeles programs, including skyrocketing water prices, and increases in property taxes for homeowners …

Link: “LA DWP, Other Utilities to Raise Water Rates Because of Drought,” by Mike Reicher, published 20 October 2015, updated … https://www.dailynews.com/2015/10/20/la-dwp-other-utilities-to-raise-water-rates-because-of-drought/ ..

Thus the price of owning a home … which is out of range for the many Californians … has become about twice as high in the last decade … There is the price of the mortgage, about equaled by the increased price of utilities and property taxes.

We cannot afford lawns any more. Many people are taking bucket showers rather than ‘real’ showers. In the streets, under the river overpasses and freeway bridges, on vacant lots and in the parks, the homeless cluster, disconsolate, often drunk on rotgut liquor, posting guards in turn to prevent violence upon their small groups, beyond any hope of shelter.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK

I would like to take a look at the longer-term effect of the stopgap measures that have been effected, so as to keep the Los Angeles city government running …

Apparently, higher housing prices will attract less jobs to California. This means that people will be less able to afford the homes they have. Those who rent will find home ownership out of reach. And those without homes will be unable to rent …

Link: “Sky-high rents and home prices are making it hard for Southern California businesses to attract workers,” by Andrew Khouri, 22 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-housing-costs-economy-20180222-story.html ..

WATER SUPPLY MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

Let’s look at water supply to Los Angeles …

Los Angeles is a desert town. Of itself, it is without means to provide water for its population. The water we have is imported from other places, and this may contribute to its cost.

In addition, there is the infrastructure that distributes water throughout Los Angeles. This, like the roads, is aging. Rather than providing a maintenance schedule, we are providing repairs when water mains break. My thought is, our city must not have the revenue for a preventive maintenance schedule for our water distribution system …

Link: “L.A.’s aging water pipes; a $1-billion dilemma,” by Ben Poston and Matt Steven, 16 February 2015 … http://graphics.latimes.com/la-aging-water-infrastructure/ ..

ROAD MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

How about road maintenance in Los Angeles? Here again, revenues are insufficient for a good road maintenance schedule …

Link: “Poorly maintained roads cost Southern California drivers $2,800 a year,” by Brenda Gazzar, Daily News, published on 17 August 2017; updated, in Los Angeles Daily News …  https://www.dailynews.com/2016/08/17/poorly-maintained-roads-cost-southern-california-drivers-2800-a-year/ ..

LAW ENFORCEMENT IN LOS ANGELES AND IN THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL RECREATION AREA

How about law enforcement? In the cities, I feel, police response is quite good. However, there is the area of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA), which is currently essentially a lawless zone. According to Wikipedia, the SMMNRA comprises 156,671 acres (63,403 ha) …

Map: SMMNRA … http://rimofthevalleycoalition.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Screen-Shot-2016-02-17-at-6.17.05-AM-1-800×445.jpg ..

I have checked, and there is one ranger assigned to this area. That is, effectively, the police patrol for the entire area.

Thus, lawlessness in the mountains is on the rise, especially in areas with natural water flow, and which are contiguous to populated areas. It reminds me a little of stories of the old days in Los Angeles, when cattle rustlers and horse thieves used to establish hidden outlaw strongholds in the mountains now termed the SMMNRA.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN LOS ANGELES

How about schools in Los Angeles? Our schools are becoming more and more a target for gun-wielding and drug dealing, making an education a risky business in Los Angeles.

SUMMARY REGARDING CITY OF LOS ANGELES PUBLIC SERVICES FUNDING

These four areas: utilities, roads, law enforcement, and education, are lacking revenues for maintenance. I feel these are the domain of government in our country … Where these are lacking, government is lacking. Here in Los Angeles, government is doing a slow tumble. It is unable to perform its basic functions.

I feel, though, that this is not the fault of government. Were revenues available here in Los Angeles, I feel certain government would be eager to do its job. But those revenues are unavailable. Why is this?

CALIFORNIA HOUSING: A TIME OF TRANSFORMATION

We here in Los Angeles are in a time of great import … a time of transformation to the New. This is not just the case here in Los Angeles. All of California, all American, and indeed, all the countries of Earth are in a time of transformation.

Transformation can feel like Apocalypse, or it can feel like a New Beginning. (3) We, the people of Los Angeles, will determine the outcome. Will we pull together and come up with innovative solutions to the housing crisis? Or will we go with the status quo … the slow tumble … the seemingly inevitable downward spiral?

I say, let us look, with a sense of adventure, a sense of the dawn of a new era for humankind, to innovative solutions. For instance …

Might Primitive Housing Techniques Be Useful?

How did the First Nations live, here in Southern California, in days not too long ago? They lived in reed, pole, palm frond, or bark huts, and they survived quite well this way …

Image: Diverse California Indian Dwellings …  http://www.rogueturtle.com/articles/images/nashelter1.jpg ..

How do people get by in Rio de Janeiro, where about a fourth of the population live below the poverty line, and the average per capita income is about $17,700 a year? Many live in very substandard housing, termed favelas ..

Image: Rio de Janeiro favela … https://media.istockphoto.com/photos/inside-a-favela-in-rio-de-janeiro-picture-id504416164 ..

How about in Tijuana, the country of origin of many of our current unhomed population? From what sort of environment are they fleeing, in order to seek a better life for themselves and their families?

Tijuana also has its slum housing, where people use building materials salvaged from landfills to build squatter homes on land with no utility service. Water trucks come round with bottles of water to sell for household use. Sanitation depends on a family’s ingenuity; pit toilets are the norm …

Image: House of cardboard in Tijuana … https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-news-photo/149207211#family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-a-ravine-picture-id149207211 ..

On Revising the Los Angeles County Housing Code

I feel we here in Los Angeles can do better than this for our people. But we must face facts.

The density of population in Los Angeles is too great for sustainable living. The population of Earth must be spread out more evenly, and ways must be found to live off the land, and become self-sustaining, and to house ourselves, in and of ourselves, humbly but efficiently, using local materials. For those that have the skills and strength of character to move out of the cities, and live a sustainable life: Why not consider taking this step?

On Building Additional High Density Housing in Los Angeles

For those that choose to remain here in Los Angeles, we must come to terms with the fact that the housing code in Los Angeles makes it impossible to attract jobs to the area. Where jobs are insufficient, the standard of living will decline. The Catch 22 is this: Where the standard of living has declined, jobs will not be attracted.

So then, what is the solution? There is a clue near the end of this article …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

The article suggests building more high density housing in California’s beach towns. I agree that this would help solve the problem. But in order to effect this solution, we must change the housing codes.

The Los Angeles Plan for Housing the Homeless Now Underway

Los Angeles has a plan for housing the homeless …

Link: “A plan to house L.A.’s homeless residents could transform parking lots across the city,” by Doug Smith, 9 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-parking-lots-housing-20180209-story.html ..

This plan is a laudable step in the right direction. Yet it is running into snags because of local fractiousness. People do not want the homeless as their neighbors.

The $2 Billion Bond to Help House California’s Homeless Held Up by Lawsuit

I see also that a $2 billion bond to help house California’s homeless, approved by California voters two years ago, is tied up in lawsuits regarding mental health care bills as yet unpaid …

Link: “2 billion to help house California’s homeless isn’t being spent — and no one knows when it will be,” by Liam Dillon, 1 March 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-homeless-housing-bond-stalled-20180301-story.html ..

The HUD Plan to Provide $2 Billion Nationwide for the Homeless

On the other hand, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a plan to provide $2 billion for the homeless, so this may to some degree ameliorate the homeless situation in California …

Link: “Ben Carson Announces $2 Billion for Homeless Programs Despite Trump’s Proposed Cuts to Housing Programs,” by Grace Guarnieri, 11 January 2018 … http://www.newsweek.com/ben-carson-billion-homeless-trump-housing-778976 ..

The Plan to House the Homeless in Guest Houses in Los Angeles County 

Los Angeles County is running a pilot program offering housing assistance for homeless housed in guest houses in property owners’ back yards …

Link: “L.A. County wants to help build guest houses in backyards — for homeless people,” by Gale Holland, 11 April 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-tiny-house-20180411-story.html ..

If successful, this might help reduce the population density in the City of Los Angeles, and help relieve concomitant issues to do with the homeless population in the City.

Employment Opportunity for the Skilled Homeless: Building That Guest Home in Los Angeles County? I would like to suggest, as well, the building of ‘Tiny Homes’ to benefit from this program, if it turns out to be approved. Perhaps this would boost employment in Los Angeles Country? Perhaps the homeless who have handyman skills might help with building additional guest homes there? Could it be that the State of California might offer financial incentives for such projects?

An Additional Idea; High Density Housing in Los Angeles County, with Busing to Jobs

If local resistance proves impossible to overcome, let us consider building high density housing in rural areas, in Los Angeles County, and providing buses to the nearest employment opportunities.

Repurpose Unprofitable Motels and Hotels as Housing for Homeless? For instance, old motels or hotels, that are proving economically not feasible, might be low-entry-cost ways for the Los Angeles County to house the homeless.

Well, that is all for now.

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

Dear Ones,

This blog is mostly a ‘what if’ based on ruminations about ‘psy in the sky’ regarding the CIA and the drug trade in America. It presents various putative scenarios, along with putative negative and positive outcomes …

CONSPIRACY THEORY ALLEGATIONS OF CIA DRUG TRADING IN DECADES PAST

I was reading an article in Wikipedia about allegations of CIA drug trading in decades past …

Link: “Allegations of CIA drug trafficking,” in Wikipedia …  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegations_of_CIA_drug_trafficking ..

THE DEFEAT OF THE WAR ON DRUGS?

I have heard, here and there, that the United States is ‘losing the war on drugs’, at least in terms of the current fight strategy. For instance, here is an article from Stanford University on the topic …

Link: “The United States War on Drugs – Stanford University” …  https://web.stanford.edu/class/e297c/poverty_prejudice/paradox/htele.html ..

RHETORICAL QUESTION: WHAT IF THE CIA WERE TO SEEK TO MONOPOLIZE THE DRUG TRADE IN THE UNITED STATES?

I began to pose the rhetorical question: What if the CIA, discouraged by losing ground in the war on drugs, were to begin dealing in drugs itself, as a way of wresting power from the drug cartels and the drug lords?

Overview: Potential Negative Outcomes

Here is what I feel about that …

  • The people of the United States would begin to live in fear of the CIA, just as they now live in fear of the drug cartels and the drug lords.
  • Money from drug sale profits would flow into the CIA coffers first, and from there to other parts of the government. We might anticipate a greater than proportionate share might stay with the CIA, making it a wealthy … perhaps even the wealthiest? … branch of government.
  • The CIA might accrue unto itself so much power, that it would become ‘top-heavy’, setting the balance of the democratic process off-kilter.
  • There would thus arise a chance that our government would move from a democratic process, to fascism, such as that promoted by the Italian National Fascist Party leader Benito Mussolini, who ruled Italy from 1922 to 1943; in 1925 he established a dictatorship there. In our case, it is likely that the head of the CIA would become America’s first dictator.

Putative Use of Released Felons as ‘Soldiers’ and Drug Runner for the CIA: Potential Negative Outcomes

The CIA has unique powers, even now, to coerce local law enforcement to accede to its expectations. As it attempted to gain hegemony over the drug trade in the United States, there might be inroads on America’s legal systems along these lines …

  • The headiness of the profits flowing from the people of the United States, and into the coffers of the CIA, would contradict the mandate of the CIA to educate our children and adults about the evils of drugs.
  • The CIA might employ felons released from our prisons, when their time is up, as strong-arm ‘soldiers’ and drug runners. These might be granted CIA ID cards.
    • Having cards, and having experienced previous lives of crime, they might continue with lives of crime, and evade retribution by law enforcement in our towns and cities through immunity granted them by their CIA ID cards.
    • As released felons are more likely to have HIV than the general population, and are more likely to have a history of child molestation, we could anticipate an increase in the HIV-infected population in towns where they operated.
    • Especially, we could anticipate the children being infected with HIV. As children with HIV are not able to have children, the populations of the towns where the CIA ‘soldiers’ worked might be anticipated to have zero population growth in 25.5 years (that is, in a generation).
  • These felon ‘soldiers’ might attempt to addict virtually all Americans with drugs, possibly through our drinking water, or through bottled water sold in stores, so as to increase the CIA’s customer base.
    • This would result in downtime and a decrease in America’s available man-hours.
    • If our drinking water were poisoned with drugs, then we might have deaths of newborns, toddlers, invalids, and seniors … in other words, of vulnerable parts of our population, because of the poisoned water.

Long-Term Potential Negative Outcomes: Decentralization of Government and Establishment of Drug Warlords Owing Fealty and Tribute to the CIA

Here is a ‘long view’ of the strategy …

  • The chance would arise that small towns across the United States would become like feudal holdings, whose law would be determined by profit rather than law and order.
    • Each of our towns might be ‘captured’, as it were, by local CIA released felon ‘soldiers’. Such ‘captured’ towns might be envisioned to be warlord strongholds, much like those of some despotic African warlords. These feudal holdings would owe fealty and ‘tribute’ to a Central Intelligence Agency on the East Coast.
  • With time, centralization of power on the East Coast would deteriorate, What would remain would be local warlord strongholds, ruled by the released felons. The manner of decentralization might be like the expansion of farming culture from the East Coast of the United States, to the West Coast, only in reverse, like this …
  • Due to the addiction of the population, and the decrease in available manpower because of HIV infection, it would become more difficult for each locality to meet its agricultural supply needs.
    • We might expect, for example, struggles with starvation in lean years.
    • We might anticipate food being held by warlord strongholds, and distributed by them. Granaries are an example of food power accretion in this manner.
    • We might anticipate raids by release felons, living in mountainous areas, upon the flatland communities, with concomitant fighting and bloodshed.
    • We might expect, as food supplies became more scarce, that the population would rely less on drugs, because of their expense, so as to set aside enough food supplies. As this began to happen, then the power of the drug lords might wain, as their wealth dwindled.
      • This might give our towns an opportunity to re-establish democratic process and civil law, through overthrowing the warlords.

ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES

As I did not much like my line of inquiry and investigation of the above scenario, I would like to present two alternative strategies, with regard to the war against drugs in America.

A Substitute Plan for the CIA to Garner Money for Our Government by Nationalizing and Administering Tobacco Sales, with Doubled Taxes

As things stand, it is illegal for the CIA to engage in business in America. As mentioned above, the concern is that the resultant monopoly and hegemony would erode our Constitutional liberties and threaten our democratic way of life.

However, if our leadership felt that the situation were such that this law must be contravened, then I would suggest that the CIA begin to sell some commodity other than drugs. One such commodity might be tobacco.

From 2000 to 2010, Americans spend about $100B annually on illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine, according to the RAND Drug Policy Research Center for the Office of National Drug Control Policy. This is the most recent figure I have on the market value of illegal drugs in the United States, so I will go with this.

Link: “Americans Spent About A Trillion Dollars On Illegal Drugs In The Last Decade,” by Matt Ferner, 13 March 2014, in Huffington Post … https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/13/americans-trillion-dollars-drugs_n_4943601.html ..

The retail value of 2017 annual tobacco sales in the United States was about $121B …

Link: “Market value of tobacco in the United States from 2013 to 2020 (in million U.S. dollars),” by Jan Conway, 20 February 2020, in Statista: The Statistics Portal” … https://www.statista.com/statistics/491709/tobacco-united-states-market-value/ ..

Looking at these two figures: 2017 annual tobacco sales at $121B, and 2010 estimated annual illegal drug sales at $100 billion, we might consider these to be roughly equal.

Thus the CIA might expect to profit as much from the nationalization of tobacco sales, as it might from sales of recreational drugs, were it to double the tax on tobacco sales.

There would be other upsides to this strategy as well …

  • Like recreational drug use, tobacco use causes health risks. However, I feel that increased use of tobacco might not damage the decision-making ability of people as much as drug use while they are in the workplace. Thus our workforce might more easily maintain its competitive edge in the global economy.
  • As it would have no financial incentive to promote addiction to recreational drugs, the CIA could, without quandary, set aside part of its profits from the sale of tobacco, to educate children and adults on the danger of using drugs, and to offer drug rehab programs. (However, education on the health risks of tobacco might suffer.)
  • There might be less deaths of newborns, toddlers, invalids, and seniors were we to avoid addicting the overall United States population by drugging drinking water (as in the hypothetical instance above)
  • The CIA would not need to use released felons to sell tobacco; they could simply nationalize tobacco sales, and double the tax on them. Instead, released felons might be steered in the direction of employment in less populated areas, such as forestry or fishing. Thus the danger of infecting our schoolchildren with HIV, through use of released felons who may have been infected with HIV in prison, might be mitigated.

A Preferable Alternate Strategy: Legalization and Taxation of Recreational Drugs

I suggest a second alternate strategy, that of legalizing and taxing recreational drugs. I have discussed the benefits of this strategy in a prior blog …

Link: “What Could We Expect in Federal, State and Local Revenue Increases if Recreational Drugs Were Legalized?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 20 April 2018; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8yL ..

To recap that article, the primary benefits of the strategy are …

  • $686.2B estimated annual net improvement in the federal bottom line, and
  • $17B estimated annual improvement in the State and local bottom line due to ‘sin tax’ increases

This strategy, then, would bolster the United States economy by providing a good deal of new money for government services, in addition to money for education and rehabilitation in the arena of drug use.

Were it to be implemented along with a strategy of circumventing, insofar as possible, the presence of HIV-infected child molesters in our small towns, the combined strategy would mitigate the timeline of the AIDS pandemic, allowing a slowdown during which an AIDS-resistant American population could develop. This, then, would mitigate manpower diminution in our next generation, about 25 years from now.

This strategy would not require that the CIA contravene its edict to protect the American people’s democratic way of life. Nor would it raise the threat of fascism or dictatorship taking hold in the United States.

Thus the people of American, raised with a healthy regard for the Declaration of Independence and our United States Constitution, might happily continue on, in a restful state of mind, and in what they understandably consider to be their right to pursue personal happiness during their lifetimes.

Consequently, we might confidently anticipate our American economy holding its own in the coming decades, very much in step with the other nations of the world.

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

$27.8B FEDERAL DRUG CONTROL ANNUAL EXPENSE

According to Forbes, the war on drugs costs the United States over $78 billion a year

Link: “Doc Series ‘The Trade’: The War On Drugs Costs The U.S. Over $78B A Year,” by Dana Feldman, contributor, in Forbes, 9 February 2018 …  https://www.forbes.com/sites/danafeldman/2018/02/09/doc-series-the-trade-the-war-on-drugs-costs-the-u-s-over-78b-a-year/#3076314a2c1b .. 

However, this includes addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity in addition to federal drug control expense. As it is the federal drug control expense that would be curtailed by legalization, I looked that up. The federal drug control expense for 2018 is estimated to be $27.8 billion dollars … That would mean the other costs … addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity … tally about $50.2 billion dollars a year.

Link: “Total federal drug control spending in the United States from FY 2013 to FY 2020 (in million U.S. dollars),” by Matej Mikulic, 23 January 2020, in Statista: The Statistics Portal … https://www.statista.com/statistics/618857/total-federal-drug-control-spending-in-us/ ..

$132B ESTIMATED ANNUAL INCREASE IN TAX REVENUES FROM NATIONWIDE LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA

According to the Washington Post, nationwide legalization of marijuana might result in $132 billion tax revenues annually

Link: “Post Nation: Study: Legal marijuana could generate more than $132 billion in federal tax revenue and 1 million jobs,” by Katie Zezima, 10 January 2018 …  https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/2018/01/10/study-legal-marijuana-could-generate-more-than-132-billion-in-federal-tax-revenue-and-1-million-jobs/?utm_term=.dee696c70135 ..

It seems to me that generation of jobs is a moot point in the above article, since the jobs are already there, in our economy, but just not included in the job statistics. Further, income tax revenue from legalization of these jobs is included as part of the $132 billion revenue figure in the above article.

So, the important figure there is the $132 billion annual revenue for nationwide legalization of marijuana, I note this figure takes into account payroll tax deductions, a retail sales tax of 15 percent, and business tax revenues, which seems appropriate to me. I note also they are calculating federal revenue rather than state or local revenue (i.e., ‘sin taxes’).

$708.6B ESTIMATED INCREASE IN TAX REVENUES FROM NATIONWIDE LEGALIZATION OF ALL RECREATIONAL DRUGS

I was unable to find comparable estimates for generation of revenue from legalization of sales of all categories of recreational drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and other recreational drugs. However, this may be estimated as follows:

According to a 2010 Cato Institute report, the ratio of tax revenues for legalization of all drugs, to tax revenues for legalization of marijuana, was 46.7B : 8.7B. For these data, see …

Link: “Commentary: Making an Economic Case for Legalizing Drugs,” by Jeffrey Miron and Katherine Waldock. This article appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer on 3 October 2010 … https://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/making-economic-case-legalizing-drugs ..

Plugging this ratio into the more recent estimate of $132B annual marijuana revenue, we get:

46.7B / 8.7B = X / 132B  … and

X = $708.6B … X being the current estimated annual revenues for legalization of all drugs nationwide.

$686.2B ESTIMATED ANNUAL NET IMPROVEMENT IN THE FEDERAL BOTTOM LINE

This estimate of $708.6B may be on the high side. However, going with this figure, and using the prior bolded figures, let’s consider what federal revenue changes might take place if all recreational drugs were legalized nationwide.

  • The current $50.2 billion dollar cost for addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity would stay roughly the same.
  • The current $27.8 billion dollar annual federal drug control expense would be greatly curtailed.
  • The current estimated annual revenues for legalization of all drugs nationwide would be $708.6B.

On the plus side for the federal government are the last two bullets: $27.8B plus $708.6B = a total of $736.4B total ‘fattening of the federal coffers’.

This increase in the federal bottom line might resolve the issue of the first-bullet minus: A portion of the federal increase might be set aside to completely cover the $50.2 billion dollar annual cost for addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity would stay roughly the same.

This would leave a net improvement in the federal bottom line of $736.4B less $50.2B = net $686.2B. 

$17B ESTIMATED ANNUAL IMPROVEMENT IN THE STATE AND LOCAL BOTTOM LINE DUE TO ‘SIN TAX’ INCREASES

An added plus would be sin taxes on that might optionally be levied by state and local governments. In 2014, state sin taxes for were $32.5B for currently legal activities and products such as alcohol, tobacco, casino, racino, and gaming. The largest category was tobacco at $16.9B.

The retail value of 2017 annual tobacco sales in the United States was about $121B

Link: “Market value of tobacco in the United States from 2013 to 2018 (in million U.S. dollars),” in Statista: The Statistics Portal,” https://www.statista.com/statistics/491709/tobacco-united-states-market-value/ ..

From 2000 to 2010, Americans spend about $100B annually on illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine, according to the RAND Drug Policy Research Center for the Office of National Drug Control Policy. This is the most recent figure I have on the market value of illegal drugs in the United States, so I’ll go with this.

Link: “Americans Spent About A Trillion Dollars On Illegal Drugs In The Last Decade,” by Matt Ferner, 13 March 2014, in Huffington Post … https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/13/americans-trillion-dollars-drugs_n_4943601.html ..

Looking at these two figures: 2017 annual tobacco sales at $121B, and 2010 estimated annual illegal drug sales at $100 billion, we might consider these to be roughly equal.

Thus the sin tax on legalized recreational drugs sales might be anticipated to be about what states and local governments receive in annual sin tax for tobacco: that is, about $17B annually.

FEDERAL LEGISLATION THAT MIGHT GET AROUND THE MORAL ISSUE STATES HAVE WITH LEGALIZATION OF DRUGS

This crunching of the figures makes it clear that the most logical thing to do would be to legalize all recreational drugs, and generate federal and state revenues from their sales. However, many people in the United States have strong moral stands on recreational drugs.

In fact, the fury over legalization, or criminalization, of recreational drug use in America today is very similar to the fury over alcohol use that resulted in Prohibition … a ban on alcohol sales and use from 1920 to 1933. As I understand it, criminal activity around ‘bootlegging’ skyrocketed during those years. Then when Prohibition was repealed in 1933, the crime wave abated, and federal and local governments began to benefit from liquor revenues.

I feel we might have the same benefits with regard to recreational drugs in this way …

  • The federal government might legalize all recreational drug use and sales.
  • States might have the power to prohibit recreational drug use and sales, either altogether or in part.
  • Those states that legalize recreational drug use and sales, either altogether or in part, might get the benefit of remuneration by the federal government, based on increased federal revenues from recreational drug sales in their state.
  • Federal remuneration to states that decide to legalize recreational drugs might be earmarked for drug-use-related health care, addiction treatment, and health education for schools, and for drug users and their families.

I Am of the Stars

United States Call to Action: ‘Homeless Trains’ Like the ‘Orphan Trains’? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 20 April 2018
Previously titled: ‘Homeless Trains’ Like the ‘Orphan Trains’?

Dear Ones,

I saw an intriguing video about the Orphan Trains that settled orphans (some of them ‘street urchins’ or ‘juvenile delinquents’) from urban environments in farm communities at the turn of the last century …

Link: “West by Orphan Train,” (2014) in IMBd … https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4543530/ ..

I see that the Trump administration has offered 2 billion dollars’ worth of grants to help the homeless …

Link: “US Gives $2B to Help Homeless Amid Plans to Cut Housing Aid,” 11 January 2018 …   https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/california/articles/2018-01-11/trump-administration-announces-2b-to-help-the-homeless ..

I expect it will take some time for this grant money to filter down into local communities. I have a thought about that …

Might ‘Homeless Trains’ be devised, along the lines of the ‘Orphan Trains’, to resettle the homeless from urban areas into parts of the nation that are in need of labor?

Here is a map showing where the orphans were settled …

Image: “Where the Orphans Went” … https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/67ca4560bc7bbfb330a680b71514bfe1a319da08/c=0-0-401-301&r=x404&c=534×401/local/-/media/2017/01/27/WIGroup/Sheboygan/636211244698689755–2-Map-where-Children-went.jpg ..

I wonder if this map might be a good starting place for a plan to resettle the urban homeless?

I note also that the ‘orphan train’ children sometimes needed to be resettled in new homes, and sometimes this happened several times to one child. We might anticipate that resettled homeless people might need follow-up and relocation services as well.

A Call to Action: Homelessness in the San Fernando Valley . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 24 March 2018

Dear Ones,

The number of homeless per 10,000 people is about 17 people, as an average across America. Yet the number of homeless per 10,000 is about 35 people in California. In 2017, about half the people without shelter, nationwide, were in California. About 90% of the total homeless population of California are without shelter. (1)

It makes sense that California should have many more unsheltered homeless people, because the weather here is mild enough to allow people to stay alive while unsheltered. Which may be why there are twice as many homeless people per 10,000 people here than in the national average.

Homeless people in the San Fernando Valley, here in the western Los Angeles area, are camping wherever they can. Some set up camp in the Santa Monica Mountains. Children wander into the mountains after school to play. They may run across inappropriate sexual solicitations from homeless women. Or worse yet, rough handling and shakedowns by homeless men. Our parks are no longer our own, because of the influx of waves of homeless people.

I had a talk with our local law enforcement recently. They explained that their jurisdiction ends where the mountain park areas begin. They said to contact the rangers who patrol the mountains. I did call several numbers, and eventually found out there is only one ranger patrolling the Santa Monica Mountains. He said he knows about the problems with lawlessness, but is unable to respond to these, for lack of manpower.

Basically, as I understand it, there are portions of the Santa Monica Mountains that have homeless encampments, and in effect, no law enforcement is available there. That makes those areas unsafe to walk in. This is true for men, women and children.

Then, when the homeless set up their camps near people’s houses, I find, from reading Nextdoor.com, that these incursions are threatening to homeowners, and rightfully so. Their presence there represents a threat to the safety of the housed people in those communities.

I have seen, recently, residents in my general area going around, around sunset, and taking photos of homeless people with zoom cameras. And then shortly thereafter, a man in a pickup truck, who looked to me like a rough sort, cruising slowly in their direction. I had a feeling he might have had in mind roughing them up and forcing them away from the homes in the area.

I know people feel threatened by the government’s dalliance in regard to providing housing, or at least locating tenting areas for, the 6,000 or more homeless in the San Fernando Valley. Yet I do not feel that rough stuff will solve the problem. Especially, and hands down, vigilante violence, I feel, will not help.

When we express violence … even righteous violence … towards another person, the feeling of violence, and the thought of violence, do not lodge themselves in the person whom we assault. Rather, that feeling and that thought pierce our own hearts. And we bring our own hearts … as wounded by our act of violence as is the heart of the person on whom we inflicted violence … back home to our families, where is enters the hearts of our sleeping spouse and our sleeping children … the newborn and the toddler, as well as the grade school child. That feeling of violence is no respecter of youth or innocence.

As we lay our injured heart down to rest, in the home we love, that violence seeps out, in our dreamtime world, and fills our home with darkness.

As we wake up to a workday morning, and take the long commute to work, the injury in our heart, that we have all unknowing and unthinking writ there, streams out, through the morning sunlight, into the hearts and minds of those we pass, with nary a second glance, on the freeway.

When we enter the workplace, and greet our co-workers, they register in their own hearts the violence we have inflicted and the darkness that thereby slumbers in our own.

And so I say, violence is not the way!

Moreover, when we forcefully dislocate homeless people from one area of the San Fernando Valley, then they relocate to another area of the Valley. As there are, by my calculation, facilities for only about 300 homeless in the valley, the likelihood is they will set up camp in a nearby inappropriate area once more.

Instead, I suggest we consider these steps to alleviate the problem …

As to the homeless encampments in the Santa Monica Mountains, we can get maps of the unsafe areas. Maybe we could speak with law enforcement about this? And get these maps into the hands of the schools and the churches. We ought also get them on the news. That way, until we can implement a strategic relocation, there will be no mishaps with unsuspecting hikers and mountains explorers.

Then, as to the issue of incursions of the homeless into residential areas: As a first step, I feel we must set aside some areas … parks, empty lots, or parking lots … for relocation from private home areas and from the Santa Monica Mountains encampments, to these new locations.

We will need sanitary facilities, to prevent more epidemic outbreaks. I feel we will need guards to ensure the safety of this vulnerable population. And, I feel, we will need to create minimum wage, unskilled job opportunities near the encampments. And we need doctors to help with medical needs.

This relocation effort ought, I feel, to be coordinated with the Santa Monica Mountain ranger, and with local law enforcement. It is very important, to prevent violence, not to proceed with vigilante efforts, even though I know that homeowners and property owners feel a sense of rising helplessness about the situation, due to government dalliance.

The first thought is not always the best thought, especially when emotions run high. Teamwork is the very best way to go, I feel. But on the other hand, the average homed person can no longer sit idly on the sidelines, waiting for an unresponsive government to act. We must take the initiative, and help our law enforcement representatives organize a proper response.

First, I feel, a relocation effort, as noted above. Compared to providing up-to-code housing, the outlay will be quite reasonable. A number of lives of the homeless may be saved by this effort. And the general feeling of the homed, of being at their wits’ end over this problem, will be allayed.

As a second step, I suggest we in the homed community reach out to our churches and businesses and ask whether they have facilities they can offer for the homeless to live in.

We have very many churches and businesses here in the San Fernando Valley. If one in two such groups would agree to house just one homeless person, the situation could be much abated. Further, the burden of homelessness would be spread round, throughout the city, and not just concentrated in one area.

Then, on to the disproportionate number of homeless in California. Might we get additional financial aid from the Federal government to help with this?

Intuitively speaking, I feel that homeless are fleeing other states, and coming to California, not just because the climate here is more suitable for outdoor living. It may also be that other states are treating the homeless with more violence than may be encountered here in California. At least, my prayer is that that their experience here will be relatively pacific.

If it be true that, for reasons both light and dark, California is asked to bear the lion’s share of the homeless problem, then in this time of somewhat greater social unrest, when a rising swell of the homeless seeks shelter and work … however humble … across America, and if California has the heart to welcome these people, where other states in our great Union will not or cannot … then to settle this unrest, and to buoy the feelings of all our peoples, surely it would be in the best interest of our nation to provide assistance, where our state, alone, cannot?

The American people stand by a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. That is, I feel, not just the people who are able to buy their own homes, and own their own cars. Nor is it the people who buy or rent their homes. Rather, it is all the people of this great Nation … owning, renting, or yearning for a place to lay their heads.

In 1883, a poetess named Emma Lazarus had the highest hopes in this regard. Her words, strong enough to ring on, down through the centuries, strong enough to greet the eyes of every traveler crossing the weary seas in hopes of a better life here in America, strong enough to light the path for all Americans even in these modern times, are:

“‘Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!'” (2)

I agree wholeheartedly with Emma Lazarus. I feel we can embody her vision for America, even in these times of change. Especially now, in these times of change.

Let us act, together, as a community.

Let us conceive our actions in faith, in hope, and in charity. In a manner befitting the greatest vision our hearts and minds can conceive to meet the challenge of these times.

Let us rise nobly to this effort to uplift and assist these, whom none yet love and protect … and in whose shoes each of us might … but for God’s Grace … find ourselves.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is some information on the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) in the Los Angeles area. This laboratory was the site of a number of nuclear contamination accidents … to do with contamination of the air, the Earth, and ground water at the western edge of Los Angeles County, bordering the eastern edge of Ventura County. It has been spoken of as America’s worst nuclear meltdown.

The meltdown occurred in 1959, and was covered up. It looks like the nuclear disaster may have come to light in 1979, 20 years later, and that community involvement has been spurring environmental cleanup since then.

SANTA SUSANA FIELD LABORATORY: BACKGROUND INFORMATION

“Throughout the years, approximately ten low-power nuclear reactors operated at SSFL, in addition to several ‘critical facilities’: a sodium burn pit in which sodium-coated objects were burned in an open pit; a plutonium fuel fabrication facility; a uranium carbide fuel fabrication facility; and the purportedly largest “Hot Lab” facility in the United States at the time … (A Hot Lab is a facility used for remotely cutting up irradiated nuclear fuel.) Irradiated nuclear fuel from other Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and Department of Energy (DOE) facilities from around the country were shipped to SSFL to be decladded and examined.

“The Hot Lab suffered a number of fires involving radioactive materials. For example, in 1957, a fire in the Hot Cell “got out of control and … massive contamination” resulted. (see: NAA-SR-1941, Sodium Graphite Reactor, Quarterly Progress Report, January–March 1957).

“At least four of the ten nuclear reactors suffered accidents: 1) The AE6 reactor experienced a release of fission gases in March 1959 … 2) In July 1959, the site suffered a partial nuclear meltdown that released 28 Curies of radio active Nobel gasses. The release resulted on the maximum off site exposure of 0.099 millirem and an exposure of 0.018 millirem for the nearest residential building which is well within current limits today … Another radioactive fire occurred in 1971, involving combustible primary reactor coolant (NaK) contaminated with mixed fission products … The SRE experienced a power excursion and partial meltdown in July 1959; the SNAP8ER in 1964 experienced damage to 80% of its fuel; and the SNAP8DR in 1969 experienced similar damage to one-third of its fuel … 

“The reactors located on the grounds of SSFL were considered experimental, and therefore had no containment structures. Reactors and highly radioactive components were housed without the large concrete domes that surround modern power reactors.” –from Link: “Santa Susana Field Laboratory,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Susana_Field_Laboratory … CC BY-SA 3.0 unported

WHICH WAY WAS THE CONTAMINATED WIND BLOWING DURING THE JULY 1959 SANTA SUSANA FIELD LABORATORY MELTDOWN?

Apparently, from what I have read, one of the owners of the property on which the laboratory is located has been unable to, or else unwilling to, release data on prevailing winds during the July 1959 meltdown. (See “Wrinkles in Runkle Canyon” article below). This would be important information, as the direction of the winds would give a clue to possible contamination of land and water and people in neighboring communities.

I have read here, that the prevailing winds tend to blow over the Simi Hills (where the Santa Susana Field Laboratory is located) from NW to SE, into the western part of the San Fernando Valley. The wind speed is about 8 mph. Then under special Santa Ana conditions, because the wind blows the other way, possibly into the well populated Simi Valley …

And I have read here, that John Pace, the last surviving worker who was on site during the meltdown, remembers the wind was blowing toward the very populous San Fernando Valley during that time …

METAL BOX IN CHATSWORTH NATURE PRESERVE: FOR MEASURING RAIN WATER?

I have questions about this metal box located at 8565 Capistrano Avenue, on the Chatsworth Nature Preserve grounds. In years past, Hazmat suited people have visited this box. When asked, one of these men told me they were measuring rainwater. If so, I wonder, why the Hazmat suits? I cannot figure it out.

RUMORS ABOUT LA DEPARTMENT OF WATER AND POWER PLANNING TO SELL THE CHATSWORTH NATURE PRESERVE, EAST OF THE MELTDOWN SITE

There are rumors about plans for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to sell the Chatsworth Nature Preserve, which, according to the recollection of John Pace, might have been directly in the path of the 1959 Santa Susana Field Laboratory meltdown wind contamination. I have not seen any substantiation of this online.

BACK ROAD TO SANTA SUSANA FIELD LABORATORY

For hikers: Here is a back road from the Bell Canyon subdivision in West Hills, Los Angeles, to the Santa Susana Field Lab, The Google Maps search parameters are: 158 Bell Canyon Rd, Bell Canyon, CA 91307 … to 152 Ctl II Rd, Brandeis, CA 93064 … via Area 1 Rd …

DEFINITION: MYSTERY RIFFS

What is a ‘Mystery Riff’? A Mystery Riff is a stream-of-consciousness series of photos, words, links, and/or visual experiences. Sometimes a Riff throws light on a course of energy present in the unconscious thought cloud of the world, or the underpinnings of an astral story floating round in the ethers.

I have noticed that today’s movies and television shows do that as well … only with strong subconscious umph … because the subconscious mind operates through pictorial images, rather than through abstract thought. For more on this, search ‘metaphor’ at my website.

False Authority . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 14 March 2018

Dear Ones,

On the psychic plane, folks often falsely purport to have indisputable authority. This is one method of exerting mind control. The very first thing to do, I feel, is to ask your psychic guy or gal to show up in person, in physical form, at your doorstep. Then next, he or she needs to be vetted …

  • Is he the real McCoy, or is that badge fake?
  • Let’s say that, as far as you can tell, he is the real McCoy. Then why not get a photo of him and a photo of his ID, just in case you may be mistaken?
  • Let’s say he seems to be the real McCoy … but he asks you to perform an illegal act … something contrary to the U.S. Constitution or contrary to the law … then, I would just say No! Call your local law enforcement representative.
  • I have read that it is ok to remain silent, and to ask to call your lawyer, when confronted with authority figures. I cannot find the reference right now, but I feel it is most likely true.

In general, I feel we all learn to obey authority as toddlers. Mom and dad ask us to do this or that, and if we do not we get a scolding. Because of this early childhood learning, most of us conform with public opinion more than we need to.

Unquestioning conformity with public concensus can make a person seem to ‘fit in’ better, because they do not stand out as being different. For instance, I have noticed at some of the churches I have attended, almost all of the congregation wear black or navy blue. So, I would gather, in order to fit in there, one would consider wearing these colors.

But, suppose I do not like to wear dark colors? What then? Well, sometimes there is an option of attending a church where people wear clothing of more varied colors. So a change of social milieu can provide the opportunity to express our own preferences, and still fit in.

In general, I believe in looking at the urge to conform to societal expectations, and deciding, on a case by case basis, whether it is worth it, in terms of personal fulfillment, to buck the tide. I feel there may be many instances when it is not necessary to go along with people in authority unquestioningly. It is better to ask questions, find out our human rights, and stand up for ourselves.

It seems to me that very many people pretend to have indisputable authority when they, in fact, have none. So that is the thing to find out: Are they for real? Are they just pretending? And, what is my own indisputable authority in any given situation?

The time to take a cold, hard look at the facts, I feel, is when we feel a sense of being threatened by someone purporting to have authority over us. A good example is the cold call from the ‘IRS agent’. I am sure you have all heard of that scam? It is really a con artist calling, but people are sometimes afraid of the IRS, and so the con artist is sometimes successful in using these strong-arm tactics.

Here is the thing: Why be afraid? Why not get the caller’s name and phone number, then call the IRS and ask whether the caller was for real, or phony. I remember finding out, that way, that the IRS never calls and harasses people on the phone.

The best way to get rid of our fears about ‘the big guys’, I feel, is to gather more facts, and get clear on what is really up.

Here is my reading on the topic …

Journal Entry: Dark Fluid versus Dark Matter . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here is a Journal entry inspired by an abstract of a physics paper on dark fluid versus dark matter. It is in outline form. My hope is that it will raise questions that spark the imagination …

JOURNAL ENTRY: DARK FLUID VS DARK MATTER
22 January 2018

In re fears of dark planet Nibiru and concerns about dark matter … which I peg to the illusion of Duality … I gather from SuspiciousObservers that there has been some wrassling around about whether dark matter really exists.

………………..
Sidebar: Does Dark Matter Exist?

Link: Abstract of “Darkness Without Dark Matter and Energy — Generalized Unimodular Gravity” by O.Barvinsky and A.Yu.Kamenshchik, Physics Letters B, Vol. 774, 10 November 2017, pages 59-63 … http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0370269317307578 … CC BY 4.0

Abstract: “We suggest a Lorentz non-invariant generalization of the unimodular gravity theory, which is classically equivalent to general relativity with a locally inert (devoid of local degrees of freedom) perfect fluid having an equation of state with a constant parameter w. For the range of w near −1 this dark fluid can play the role of dark energy, while for w=0 this dark dust admits spatial inhomogeneities and can be interpreted as dark matter. We discuss possible implications of this model in the cosmological initial conditions problem. In particular, this is the extension of known microcanonical density matrix predictions for the initial quantum state of the closed cosmology to the case of spatially open Universe, based on the imitation of the spatial curvature by the dark fluid density. We also briefly discuss quantization of this model necessarily involving the method of gauge systems with reducible constraints and the effect of this method on the treatment of recently! suggested mechanism of vacuum energy sequestering.”

………………..

So now there is a model utilizing dark fluid, and chucking out dark matter and dark energy. Flow.

Cosmological Implications

On the cosmological plane, I see a side-by-side to do with my blog category: Advaita – nonduality – duality    

Theology to Psychology to Instantaneous Physical Healing

In the theological realm, I see the ‘dark matter’ concept reducing from the cosmological conflict …

See my blog categories: Angelic Realm …  Demonic realm  …  Fallen angels  … and …  Satan – Satanism

… to the inner psychological conflict, my blog category: Shadow of our personality – dweller on the threshold  … and …  Dark body

… keeping in mind that the ‘Shadow of our personality’ and the “Dark body’ are but fluctuations or flow or relative Dark in our Body of Light.

This model, then, admits of instantaneous physical healing.

Predestination versus Free Will

Again in the realm of theology, I see relevance to the debate between the concepts of predestination and free will …

See my blog category: Free will – will power

On the Presence of God in Our Lives

Also in the realm of theology, this equates to the debate about God indwelling and transcendent, about theological canon and the mystical experience.

See my blog categories: Mysticism … and … Advaita – nonduality – duality … and the various subcategories under the general category:  Religions of the world

On the Stances and Interactions of the Governments of Gaia

On the governmental plane, we have the dispute about Defense versus humanitarian outreach.

See my blog category: War and peace – imprisonment and freedom

Quantum Research: The Leap from the Causal Realm to the Fifth Dimension

In quantum research, we have a turning from the causal plane to fractal dispersal. This frees the tangles in the Dark Network through freely mixing Dark and Light.

See my blog category: Causality – synchronicity

Planet Nibiru and New Life on New Earth

To me, Planet Nibiru represents the culmination of the Duality play mental filter.

This thought of cataclysm of the world we know as Reality with the shadow realm we know as being beyond a door behind which evil lurks … as is so eloquently stated in “The Great Invocation” of Djwhal Khul, channeled here …

Video: “The Great Invocation” . by Djwhal Khul . Channeled by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 19 November 2014, published on 3 July 2019 … https://youtu.be/IrE4QJg_Ai0 ..

And here are the words to the prayer … Link: “The Great Invocation,” by Djwhal Khul, through Alice Bailey, in Theosophy Wiki … https://theosophy.wiki/en/Great_Invocation ..

This prayer represents the rising to multidimensional Awareness of the left brain, and especially of the male population of Earth.

What we have in this new physical model is the beginning of an approach to a logical way of conceiving the One Light from which the Universe flows, the fluid flutter of Darkness and Light upon the lens of the human eye, and the Soul’s reaction to the ebb and flow of the Dark.

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

Dear Ones,

As there are wild astral tales about quasi-illegal transgender experiments to make hardened criminals unable to rape, hence releasable from prison … and by the by a better get-by-the-border-stations should they turn to drug running … I did some research on transgender …

TRANSGENDER SUICIDE ATTEMPTS AND SELF MUTILATION INCIDENCE

Here are a few things I just found out: A 2016 study pegged the suicide attempt rate among transgender youth at 30%, and the incidence of self-mutilation such as cutting at 42% …

Link: “High rates of suicide and self-harm among transgender youth,” by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, in “Science Daily,” 31 August 2016 … https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/08/160831110833.htm ..

There are more statistics on transgender suicide attempts here …

Link: “Study shows rising rates of suicidal acts in transgender adults,” by Amy Wallace, 4 May 2017 … https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/05/04/Study-shows-rising-rates-of-suicidal-acts-in-transgender-adults/4561493909781/ ..

RECENT MURDERS OF TRANSGENDER WOMEN

According to Wikipedia, this is on the rise. There were nearly 60 such murders worldwide in 2017 …

Link: “List of people killed for being transgender,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_killed_for_being_transgender ..

PUTATIVE PRISON TRANSGENDER FELON RELEASE EXPERIMENTS

These times are forecast to include cognitive dysfunction, and we can anticipate this may take various twists and turns, including …

  • quasi-Illegal or else ‘out there’, ‘cutting edge’ human social experiments,
  • and a panicky or anxious sense of urgency about the need for them, despite scant outcomes research,

These types of human social experiments may be a symptom of the cognitive dissonance for those facing anxiety attacks while in leadership positions.

There are several caveats in the above putative cases …

  • There is the danger to their life that transgender felons would face on being released from prison, due to social violence, as well as self-inflicted violence.
  • There is the danger to the health of the patient, unless the operation is performed by a qualified surgeon.
  • There is a possible criminal penalty for the person performing the operation, if he or she is not qualified, or if the operation is illegal in his state.
  • And there is an element of coercion in the idea that a hardened felon can only be released from prison if they agree to mutilation of their bodies.

COMPARING SUCH PUTATIVE MODERN-DAY EXPERIMENTS WITH NAZI HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION

My own feeling is that those considering social experiments in these times, especially quasi-illegal social experiments, might wish to compare their plans for bold social change with the Nazi human experiments undertaken during the Third Reich …

Link: “Nazi human experimentation,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_human_experimentation ..

THE NUREMBERG CODE, AND MODERN-DAY LESSONS FROM THE NUREMBERG TRIALS

I took a look at the Nuremberg code, and in hasty perusal judge that the type of experiment described above violates that code … See if you agree …

Link: “Nuremberg Code,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_Code ..

It was because the Nazi war criminals broke the Nuremberg Code that they were brought to trial between 1945 and 1949 …

Link: “Nuremberg Trials,” 29 January 2010, updated … http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/nuremberg-trials ..

Thus, it seems possible that quasi-illegal or ‘boldly on the edge’ human social experiments run the risk of being tried by the United States Justice System, or by the International Court of Justice, as violating the Nuremberg Code, and as violating social standards of justice for humankind.

CONSEQUENTIALISM AND SOCIETAL EXPECTATIONS

Consequentialists feel that a good cause makes the use of any means … even morally ‘bad’ means … acceptable. But historically, society takes a dim view of this. The societal backlash for those espousing Consequentialism has, in times past, been quite severe.

Hence, the Nuremberg Trials, which dealt every harshly with the idealistic notions that the Nazis had of building a great world order on the backs of those they deemed genetic rejects and sent to their deaths in prison camps.

Even so it might be today; as one brilliant Consequentialist notion after another hits the fast-moving fan of societal notions of the tried and true.

ON SINKING TO FERAL INSTINCTS IN THE NAME OF A BETTER WORLD ORDER

In addition to the above, one might consider whether one’s actions, during the Ascension process, are largely humanitarian in nature, or whether they may be jumping the gun, or even whether they may involve … or be perceived as involving … the uncaging and expression of one’s own feral instincts …

  • such as the desire to project fear onto others; to make others fearful, so as to feel less fearful oneself
  • or the desire to prove one’s manhood by emasculating other men viewed as predatory and dangerous

ON STICKING WITH THE TRIED AND TRUE

Why not stick with the tried and true for now? Why not stick together, as one loving, world community? Why act out our fears and our savage instincts? Why listen to the left brain at all, during these times? When we can let intuition lead us through every peril, and grace preserve us and all those we love, in joy and peace, and Light?

While most likely irrelevant, this background reading sparked my imagination …

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is another inexplicable nightmare-like dream; this one occurred the night of 12 January 2018, or thereabouts. It is a story about a man who found out his wife was having a baby girl by another man, and who gave her a substance that induced abortion. The story moves into greater depths of Darkness, and ends with a plea that the rights of unborn children to live, and thrive, and be respected as human beings …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

It seems like the nights are full of dreams of catastrophe these days … small personal catastrophes, though; not those catastrophes on a worldwide scale.

I went to the new Star Wars movie, “Episode VIII – The Last Jedi,” last night. It was full of strife and contention and the fight of evil … Darkness … against good and Light.

I could feel my celestial Ascension team working through the layers of images in my head, that night. I could not sleep for a long time, because of the very vivid images that were there … maybe from the movie, or from something else that was going on in the world. My team were working very hard, and having a wonderful time doing it. Eventually, I guess, they got everything clear and quiet … pacific and harmonious.

Then in the middle of the night I woke up. I was having another terrible nightmare. It had to do with a woman who was six months pregnant … a young woman, probably 30s or 20s, who was six months pregnant. Her husband had come to believe that the child he had was not his own. He had given himself a drug that night, and given her a drug that aborted the child.

The child was born live, but fatally dosed with drugs, it seems. I could hear the father of the child … someone else, apparently … in his own dreamtime realm, saying that: Don’t kill this child. My wife and I will raise it as our own. We will give you $10,000 for the child.

Just as the young ex-mother looked down and said: This child is worth $10,000 dollars, apparently the child died. They were both so heavily drugged … the cuckolded father and the mother! It was a very disturbing dream; I do not know what to make of it. He first decided to cut up the baby; he said he wanted to cut the buttocks off of it and cook them. Then the mother later said he had cut off the baby’s head. Then the man said: Now I want you to have intercourse with me. (He did not say it exactly like that.) And the mother said, No, she could not right then; she was too tired and sick.

He stood before her and said: I think it’s a small thing to ask of you. And then he raped her. That was just as she was giving birth to the placenta, the afterbirth. Then she said she wanted some solitary time … she wanted to rest.

The story seemed to get worse; he was holding a gun and threatening her life. I figured my Awareness there (if there was truth in the story) probably was not helping in the least. It was just causing a grandstanding effect, and a magnification of the violence that was being portrayed. So I did my best to remove my energy from that situation, and drifted off to a troubled sleep.

I have to say that this, and the nightmare a few days ago, are some of the most problematic nightmares that I have had so far. And for this one I wish, for all the unborn children of Earth, peaceful and trouble-free passage into life in human form. I wish for them parents who feel respect and love for them, and who wish for them to be on Earth.

I wish for all the children everywhere to be deeply loved and cherished by all the beings now on Earth. That is my hope for humankind for the coming year.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would tell you a story … It is about a dream like a nightmare I had three or four days ago … It was a very vivid nightmare that woke me up. And I do not know the significance of it.

I remember that it happened during two days of heavy rain in Los Angeles, most likely on 9 January 2018. There were days when the streets were flooding up above the curbs, because there is not a lot of rain in Los Angeles, and they do not plan the grade of the streets according to the water flow that happens when there is a storm that continues, with rain falling all day long. And that happens once or twice a year, that the streets get flooded up.

And so, in the middle of the night, while it was raining, there may have been a different sound in the air: A sound on the roof; a sound outside, where the rain was hitting the ground; and so forth. And I wonder if that may have had something to do with this nightmare that I had that night, and some other nightmares that have happened since then.

Alice’s First Dream: The University Man Who Was a Member of the Army of the Night

Anyway, it went like this: There was a city dreamscape, maybe in Pasadena. It seemed like Pasadena, but no real place there, you know … with high freeways soaring above valleys that included residential districts. It was easy to get lost on these elevated freeways … traffic was zipping along. Off one ramp was a college campus.

It might have been a place like Caltech, or maybe some other university in the Pasadena area. I have only been to Caltech once or twice; I do not remember any place like that. It was just a feeling; a place like that, I think.

There was a person there, who was living with a woman. He was an antisocial personality; he would go out at night, and stalk the people there, on the college campus. What they call, on the astral airs, an army of the night kind of guy.

It was like I dropped, or dipped, into his consciousness, got a gander of his life there, and then stepped back out.

Alice’s Second Dream: The Young, Homeless Woman in the Public Restroom

So that was the first. And then I woke with a dream of being in a very small restroom … on the East Coast, it seemed like, or maybe Europe … a woman’s restroom. I was homeless. It was a young woman, I think; I am not sure. It was a woman, though.

And she was in this very small restroom, in a park, trying to find a way to get a few minutes of rest, and at the same time, protect herself from any men that might enter there and try to exert violence over her, as it was nighttime.

But I remember she had a very positive attitude: She said she was sure that someone would come in, and offer to take her home and take care of her … like that.

Alice’s Third Dream: The Young Woman Walking in a Maze of Streets

Full of concern over that dream, I segued into another dream; an even worse dream. There was a young woman; it was as if she were walking through a series of streets … kind of complicated streets, like sometimes in Europe and on the East Coast there are streets that just do not make much sense.

They are not laid out in an orderly fashion, like they frequently are, here in California. But rather, they simply sprang up, with time, here and there, centuries ago, when our nation was first founded. Or in Europe, it is probably the same way, sometimes. So, there would be streets that would meld together, and would not make much sense, in terms of ways of getting from one street to the other, and so forth.

That same person, or another young, homeless woman was walking along those streets, and knew them very well, and had stayed in a certain place, by some body of water, I think; and was then back in this urban area, and was walking along.

Alice’s Fourth Dream: The Red Gila

And all of a sudden, the road changed, and the person changed. The scene changed to a place like the California or Arizona countryside. It was mostly barren and mountainous. And I saw first, a strange creature by the side of the dirt road.

It kind of reddish; a rusty orangish reddish brown color. And it looked like a fat-bodied snake 1 1/2 or 2 feet long. Then when I looked closely, I saw that it had tiny legs on it, like a lizard might. They did not look very functional, but it had legs.

Image: “Gila Monster found in Southeastern Arizona,” by Josh Olander, 25 March 2015, CC BY 4.0

This creature was right beside a tiny bush on the north side of the dirt road or path which I was walking along in an easterly direction. The mountains were across a lower stretch of desert, to the north of the dirt road or path.

Then it was not the young woman, but I who was there. I went for my camcorder to record the creature, and looked back, and it was gone.

So first there was that vision of the creature; I do not know … Was it a Red Gila? Was it the orange snake? I just do not know.

Alice’s Fifth Dream: Death by Drowning of 16 People in a Dugout in the Mountains

And then I saw a man’s leg; he was standing on the north edge of the path, by what looked like two coyote holes above a little ridge that let down, by maybe a gradual, erosion-worn, 20 foot drop of ochre-colored Earth, to the lower desert land between the road and the mountain range.

I do not know if you know about coyote holes. They are not very big; they are just about everywhere, out here in California. They are dug into the dirt, and they are only about 6 inches wide … maybe 4 inches wide. And yet they can get down in there.

But one of the holes I saw by the man’s leg was much bigger; it were maybe 1 1/2 feet wide; a hole that went down into the Earth by the side of the road over the decline where the level of the dirt declined pretty fast.

Six to 10 feet lower, there was another hole that went down into the dirt. And past that, the level of the Earth continued to tumble and cascade down, into the valley that overlooked a high mountain in the distance.

What I intuited, all in a flash, was that the rains had come down, coursing down the dirt road, and they had not damaged the surface of the road. But when they got to that hole there, at the top, beside the road, they had filled it up with mud.

I saw the man standing, with sorrow in his heart. I saw not his face, but his foot, with a hiking or running shoe … the kind with the tread on it … stamping down into the firm but damp Earth.

I could see, when he removed his foot, where the sole of his shoe had been; you know how, sometimes you can see tracks of hikers, in the mountains when you walk, or on the beach? Like that.

And the feeling that I got was that maybe 16 people lay buried in that place … that there was an underground chamber there, that had filled with water. And mud had come down, and prevented them from getting out.

The chamber had collapsed. There were some women and children, along with the men there. And they had all died during the rains.

This person who knew about their place, their home in the Earth, had stopped by and heard them, he said. He had heard them crying out, from deep in the Earth, and saying that the water had slowly risen up, inside the dugout, and that they could not get away. And then … he said … their cries stopped.

That was the end of that terrible sequence of dreams, which I vividly remember still, and am attempting to figure out. I am sorry to say that sometimes the prophet does not have the answer, I guess.

Prayer for Homeless and the Homed
by Alice B. Clagett
13 January 2018

I pray for all those who live in the mountains,
who have homes burrowed into the Earth,
all over California.

I pray that they may be safe;
that they have enough to eat;
and that they should have happy and fulfilled lives,
just as might all beings everywhere.

I pray that this may be so.

. . . . .

Conclusion

For me, this vision is a heads up that much needs to be done, all over the world, for the disadvantaged peoples of Earth.

God bless you all, and keep you safe, and give you all that you need for a happy and fulfilled life on Earth.

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

Karma: Putative Sex Trafficking by Spiritual Leaders . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 31 December 2017

Dear Ones,

I figure, a man who is revered as a spiritual leader in this lifetime, and who traffics in human sex slaves … whether they be felons or prostitutes or runaway children … will likely be reborn as a sex slave who is a felon or sex worker or runaway child.

So then, by hook or by crook … by karma or through the much more felicitous path of dharma … it all works out, and the Soul learns its lessons.

Then, by extension, a spiritual man who has a runaway boy as a sex slave, may be having sex with a spiritual man who did the same, and incarnated as the runaway boy.

Our Star Brothers, Cain and Abel, and Palestine
A Story by Alice B. Clagett
7 July 2014

I have a story for you, about the Middle East, and about the area around Palestine, where there has been so much conflict all through the ages. But I would like to start from an unconventional place.

Some say 10,000 years ago; others say 150,000 years ago … that is quite a difference! … but I will say:  A long time ago, we all came from the Stars.

And in our home in the Stars, we were all brothers and sisters together, sharing universal love, and Christ consciousness. Little did we know, what we are coming into on Earth.

Then we came down to Earth, in the area of the Middle East and Northern Africa. And there, after a while, we found things to be quite different from our home in the Stars.

We were no longer brother and sister still. We were families divided, nations divided, brothers divided one against the other. And so came about the story of Cain and Abel … the two brothers who just didn’t get along.

That story of Cain and Abel has been played out, and performed, in the Palestine area for all these centuries. It is the burden of Earth hidden from her birthright.

And the time has come for all us humans … all us human beings on Earth … to remember that we are brothers and sisters together. That we all share Earth together, and all her resources are for everyone.

And the time will come, after that, when Palestine is free to be in peace. And all that area around there will be peaceful. I can’t wait for that day!

Beyond that will come the time when we are reunited with our brothers and sisters of the stars, so that we may become, once more, one galactic family. So that we may once more remember we are one with the All.

Peace to Palestine, today and always. Peace to all her children. And to the children of Earth. And to the children of the Stars. That will be us too, you know? …

Dear Ones,

I just read a thought provoking article. This short article is a great read …

Link: “Are We Chicken about Prison Reform?” by Steven Greenhut, 25 July 2013 …   http://humanevents.com/2013/07/25/are-we-chicken-about-prison-reform/ ..

There is a point I liked especially, about how California Proposition 2, which decried cramped quarters for chickens, passed and became law in 2008.

Yet many prison inmates live in Security Housing Units (SHUs) — 7½-by-12-foot windowless concrete cells. It is not like they have a bookshelf in there, for furthering their education. Au contraire.

Basically, we Californians are interested in prison reform for chickens, and we are overlooking the humans in the same predicament.

Compute, compute?

It seems to me, the thing that might make the most difference might be a simple shift of emphasis, from punishment to rehabilitation, instruction in a well-paying trade, and a chance for education in the realm of spirit, whether it be a traditional faith, meditation, or another path of their choosing.

And then, why make upset, angry men more upset, more angry? Why not allow conjugal or even sex worker visits, as in Mexican prisons? We could quibble over details, but the thought’s the thing. Upliftment, a chance to live a happy life on the outside.

Remember when we were children, and a quarrel came up? Was there a time when a parent smacked you? What did you feel? Did you feel like being a productive member of your family? Or did you feel like hitting your parent back?

The very next step, psychologically speaking, is ‘projection’ … the little child walks out and smacks the dog ….

So smacking just makes matters worse. Why should we Americans continue an ineffective mental filter instilled in us before the age of 5? We’re brighter than that!

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

Felony Ethnicity and Gender . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 5 January 2015; revised

Dear Ones,

Ethnicity of felony defendants in California in 2012 was 36% White, 21% Black, 40% Hispanic, and 3% Asian/Pacific Islander.

According to 2011 US Census Bureau estimates, California’s population was 39.7% Non-Hispanic White, 6.6% Black or African American, 13.6% Asian, 1.0% American Indian, 0.4% Pacific Islander and 3.6% from two or more races. White Americans make up 74.0% of the total population. By ethnicity, 38.1% of the total population is Hispanic/Latinos (of any race) and 61.9% Non-Hispanic (of any race).

So comparing felony defendants to the general population, by percent, we have …

White felony 36% (population 39.7%)
Black felony 21% (population 6.6%)
Hispanic felony 40% (population 38%)
Asian/Pacific Islander felony 3% (population 19.2% including ‘other’)

Then as to ratio of men to women, there were 79% male felony defendants to 21% female felony defendants, compared to about 50-50 in the general population.

So natch, the question arises: Could it be that there is some unwitting, unintended cultural mental filters at work here?

How would it be if we were to strive toward a felony arrest rate more in keeping with the ethnicity of our population? Something akin to the diversity standards for hiring employees in the United States today?

Or maybe, education of the public and of our police force as to the possibility of unintended mental filters based on ethnicity, might be a good idea?

Immaculate Conception and the World Today . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 2 January 2015; revised

  • THE SACREDNESS OF CHILDREN BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK
  • MORE INFORMATION

Video: “Hail Mary Gentle Woman, sung by Angelina (EWTN),” Angelinasings, 15 May 2008 …  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=85tfBBmbuMc ..

Dear Ones,

I have been thinking about the Bible doctrine that Mary was a Virgin and also the Mother of God. I wondered what application it might have for all women. An idea came to me during the church service yesterday.

THE SACREDNESS OF CHILDREN BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK

In the traditional way of thinking of the Virgin Birth, of course, Mary, a woman who had known no man, was blessed by the Holy Spirit and gave birth to the Son of God. Well if we take it this way, then this might imply that sexuality and Divinity are opposites.

But to look at the conception in terms of women everywhere, the notion that Mary, a young unmarried woman, conceived a child who was the Son of God, could offer a benediction to all unwed mothers. To read that the Angel said to Mary, that her child would be great and would be called the Son of the Most High, might help us understand that all children, regardless of the circumstances of their birth, deserve love and respect, and are capable of feats of great courage and great worth in the world.

The crux of the issue seems to lie in whether Mary was an unwed mother, or whether this was truly an Immaculate Conception. But maybe, in either case, we could say that conception is an immaculate event. That all mothers are blessed with God’s love. That childbirth is one of God’s greatest miracles. That all children are children of God. And this is the conclusion I draw from the story of Mother Mary, whose solid, steadfast, blue white Light imbues all those who revere her.

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

Call to Action: Public Coin-Operated Showers for the San Fernando Valley . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 13 December 2017
Previously titled: Public Coin-Operated Showers for the San Fernando Valley

Dear Ones,

I would like to suggest to laundromat owners and maybe gas station owners in the San Fernando Valley that they consider adding a few public coin-operated showers to their facilities. This would provide a new income base for these ongoing businesses.

Coin-operated showers are being successfully operated as part of a laundromat in Durango, Colorado, for instance. There, I feel they serve the large population of housed people who live on the dirt roads in rural areas, and have no public water system to their property.

Here in the San Fernando Valley, coin-operated showers would serve the large homeless population.

An alternative would be free-standing toilet facilities with public coin-operated showers, similar to those found in parks and recreation areas in California and Colorado.

I was reading an article about how a fire at a homeless encampment alongside Fwy 405 is thought to have started the pricey Skirball fire on 6 December 2017 …

Link: “Skirball fire sparked by illegal cooking fire, California officials say,” by Julia Jacobo, 12 December 2017 … http://abcnews.go.com/US/skirball-brush-fire-sparked-illegal-cooking-fire-california/story?id=51746393 ..

I thought it might be a good time to publish the below video about a homeless plan for Los Angeles, as clearly, it’s important to find a solution to the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles, not only for humanitarian reasons (which I myself find very compelling) but also because of …

  • the threat to property owners caused by forest fires,
  • improper sanitation at encampments, which might lead to disease outbreaks, and their spread through homed populations
  • potential lawlessness in confrontations between the homeless and the homed
  • homeowner fears of falling property values,
  • and the clear need to find a way for taxable residents to pay for services for the homeless till they can get back on their feet, as has been evidenced in
    • sharp upticks in property taxes and utility prices in Los Angeles,
    • and declines in some city services, such as …
      • freeway and road repairs, including repaving of residential streets … as I understand it, the block I live on hasn’t been repaired resurfaced since it was first paved, going on 60 years ago.
      • sidewalk repairs caused by street tree roots, although partial rebates may be available for property owners who make such sidewalk repairs … see http://www.sidewalks.lacity.org/ ..
      • repair of potholes in alleys, which issue I explored some years ago and found to be, at that time, insoluble
      • and development of more frequent and more widespread mass transit facilities

If the homeless were housed and employed, they could add to California’s tax base, and assist in financing those Los Angeles City Services that are currently overburdened or on hold.

Further, their tax contributions to the State of California and the City of Los Angeles might help lower the high cost of utilities and property taxes, through a more robust the tax base.

In fact, the simple act of just one homeless person finding good employment gives the City a big lift, in terms of it’s need to support and uplift those in need.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

This is a continuation of a suggestion I had for a place to house, or allow an encampment of, homeless people, especially men, or men who are with a woman, but not families. Or maybe just homeless men, in the San Fernando Valley. I understand there are about 6,000 people that need homes there.

Anyway, I came up with this notion, and I’m putting it forth as a possibility. If you like the idea, but the location is not appropriate, then you could use the parameters that I’m choosing by, to find another location in the San Fernando Valley.

So I had in mind, as a locale, the parking lot … and maybe also, as time goes on, the building that used to be Costco, at the intersection of Canoga Avenue and Roscoe Blvd in the San Fernando Valley. That’s the southeast corner of that intersection.

It features a big parking lot, and then there’s a really big Costco building there. There’s also a special kind of fueling station … an electric charging station … there in the parking lot right now. But the Costco has closed up and gone elsewhere, and the property has been, for some time, vacant … probably for lease or for sale.

So I had some thoughts about that …

It’s kind of off by itself. It’s not next to a shopping center, like the OSH property that was deserted at the northeast corner of Victory Blvd and Fallbrook Avenue in the San Fernando Valley. So there is less likely to be complaints about it from shopping center upscale retail stores.

And it’s across the street from a Salvation Army Thrift Store and facility. And it’s also next door to a Home Depot.

And I thought a few things: I thought that, with a high fence, the part of the parking lot that’s not being used otherwise could be fenced off and used as a place where the homeless could pitch their tents.

And I also thought that the people at Salvation Army might be ideally suited to help maintain such a homeless encampment, or to provide professional advice regarding it.

Then, there’s a Salvation Army store right there, which would provide cheap goods.

And the Home Depot, I’ve noticed that there are day laborers who gather outside, ready to help people with their home improvement and repair projects. And I wondered if that might be, temporarily, a source of day labor for the homeless encampment.

Also I thought of Home Depot and Lowes, because they have inexpensive, prefabricated sheds. The smallest of these sheds might be helpful to put up as semi-permanent locations, that would provide some security for their goods if they were to go off on a day job, or other job. And that might also provide them with safety while they are sleeping, and better protection from the elements in case of rain, or like that. Although it would be pretty hot in the summertime. And it wouldn’t necessarily have electricity in it.

I feel that the City of Los Angeles might be able to provide WCs, porta-potties, of the kind that have footpumped water dispensers, so that people could wash their hands with and soap. And so there would waste disposal facilities that could be quickly set up and pretty easily managed, I think.

This is the problem: There’s no grocery store extremely close, although within walking distance for those that are not too handicapped, I feel, there are a couple of big grocery stores. The nearest, 2 blocks to the west, on Roscoe, is Vallarta Supermarkets, which is quite well stocked. But not too close, so maybe a shuttle might be provided, from the place where the people are encamped, to a grocery store … maybe once a day, or twice a day; what do you think?

But in addition, for sundries and a minimal amount of food supplies, there’s a liquor store within a block, a little to the south, on Canoga Ave,

Next to the liquor store is a Post office. I know that a lot of homeless people are depending on their Social Security, SSDI (Social Security Disability Benefits) or SSI (Supplemental Security Income) checks, and that might be a place where they could establish an address, a Post Office Box.

I also noticed there are mass transit routes on both Canoga Avenue and Roscoe Blvd., so that’s good.

So there are a lot of reasons why that particular location is a really good one, for the time being.

Then, I wondered about the Costco … A little bit farther out, a little bit later on, I wondered if there might be a way to provide an incentive for businesses to emply the homeless in stalls, or stations, in that Costco. So that it could be rented, by the year, or whatever, by any number of small businesses that are struggling to get on their feet, and that might get a tax advantage from hiring those people that are homeless.

Also I thought, as far as tax advantages are concerned: Maybe there could be a credit if, say, Home Depot, or Lowes, or one of the local lumber companies or hardware stores wanted to provide a discount on … or even provide outright … some of the small shelters that might be needed for the homeless population in the parking lot.

So basically, that’s what I’m thinking.

To the east, there’s a homeless facility that’s open only during the cold winter months, the coldest months of the year. This is an 85-bed facility in Sylmar now open only in the winter, but which is planned to be converted to a year-round bridge housing facility for women.

Link: “Homeless Shelter For Women To Open In San Fernando Valley,” by California Patch, News Partner, 3 October

But I feel that, in the encampment I’m proposing, it might be good to separate the population, even in that one large parking lot, into …

  • single men, for one large area,
  • and then families, for another area,
  • and then in another area: Handicapped people. And the reason to allow handicapped access to another area is that, there might be some roughhousing and carrying on in the men’s area, for instance. And the handicapped can’t move quite so fast sometimes … They’re not as mobile … And they might be better protected in a separate enclosure.

So those are my thoughts.

I also think that a grading system might be established … maybe with Salvation Army, at first, training people who are in the encampment, to become caretakers or people to help keep order and make sure everything is ok … to call the police if any roughhousing happens, and to have strict rules about that, so that the people that are there can feel safe and comfortable.

And also, if it turns that there are people who are either employed as day laborers for Home Depot, or else, say, in a sort of a factory situation, inside of Costco, if that were to work out … Or even if something were to be worked out in the parking lot there, for day laborers with rudimentary manual skills … then there might be these people who have been trained to help decorum during the day, and to make sure that there are no instances of substance abuse, and like that, which cause the feeling that there might be an unsafe situation happening.

I wondered further … If the homeless were employed, whether there might be a discounted training position available. That is, maybe part of the wage that a person received might be benefits for substance abuse programs, or psychological or health issues programs that might be provided ‘on campus’, as it were.

Well that’s my thought: That place, or someplace like it might prove to be quite a Godsend for the homeless population here in the San Fernando Valley.

Tell me what you think about it! This is a topic for neighborhood discussion.

Talk to you later! Bye bye …

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

Soul Wounding Caused by Circumcision . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 31 January 2015; revised

Image: Crying newborn … https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/aug/23/baby-crisis-europe-brink-depopulation-disaster#img-1 ..

Dear Ones,

We raise the hue and cry when we hear of female circumcision in Africa. By what glitch of the imagination do we approve the barbaric practice of circumcising baby boys?

From a clairaudient standpoint, I am 120% certain that this practice is the cause of severe Soul wounding. Wounding that stays with the child throughout his lifetime, influencing his sexual behavior toward sadomasochism. Wounding that he carries with him from incarnation to incarnation.

Of this I am certain, the sexual organs of children ought to be treated with the utmost dignity, love, and respect.

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

Dear Ones,

YESTERDAY’S SOLAR FILAMENT ACTIVITY AND THE SUBSEQUENT NOOSPHERIC COMMOTION

Last night was exceptionally commotional on the astral plane. I feel this may be due to the large filament burst and the Sun’s post-eruption turmoil. See

Video: “Earthquake, Eruption Track, Chemtrail Star | S0 News Nov.11.2017,” by SuspiciousObservers, 11 November 2017 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8daMdFXckxE … See timeframe 0.23 to 1.02

It appears there was concomitant roiling in the EMF of Earth (and most likely of all the planets in our Solar System), and that this roiling affected the noosphere. In human terms, it roiled our own EMF fields, bring up for view issues of Soul wounding stored in EMF glitches in our aura. Solar roiling, like the solar winds that buffet Earth, seldom resolve these issues, I feel.

THE HEALING ENERGIES OF OUR UNIVERSE

It feels to me that the great healing energies of our Sun, from the other suns of our galaxy, and incoming from nearby galaxies, have more to do with Earth-directed solar flares, typical Almanac events such as solstices, equinoxes, full and new moons, planetary alignments and conjunctions, and openings of lines of Light that connect with our Solar system from other celestial bodies.

ON SEEING THE TANGLES IN THE UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHT CLOUD OF THE WORLD

So then, last night did not feel like a healing in that way to me. It felt more like a roiling of the Dark, the unconscious thought cloud of the world. The benefit of this roiling motion is that it gives us a chance to notice the ‘dark tangles’ in the collective unconscious, and to formulate conscious plans to throw Light upon these tangles, and resolve them through collective humanitarian action, whether on the physical plane, or through contemplation and prayer.

ON SUSSING OUT HERETOFORE UNKNOWN ASTRAL AND MENTAL ENERGY TANGLES BY INTUITING  DARK ENERGY STRANDS IN THE DAILY NEWS

Along those lines, I had a intuitive flash last night, to do with the daily news … which points out problems and commotion on the physical plane … and a congruence with little known sources of commotion on the astral and mental plane.s

Basically, I feel, we can take any ongoing, commotional news-worthy event, and look for its parallel on the astral and mental planes. Not with regard to what’s known about the astral and mental planes, but rather with regard to what has been heretofore unknown about the these planes.

ON DISPLACED HUMAN AND MIGRANT HUMAN ENERGIES WORLDWIDE

Illegal Aliens

For instance, there is the issue of illegal aliens. According to a 2014 Pew Research Center study, there are about 11.1 million illegal persons in the United States today, living mostly in 20 large cities here …

Link: “20 U.S. metropolitan areas with the largest number of unauthorized immigrants.,” by Pew Research Center … http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/02/09/us-metro-areas-unauthorized-immigrants/ft_17-01-31_unauthorizedmetros_map/ ..

Refugees

Then there is the issue of refugees … people who have been forced to relocate beyond their country’s borders … and  ‘internally displaced persons’ … people who have been forced to relocate, but who remain within their country’s borders. By the end of 2015, there were about 65 million of these in the world today …

International Migrants

In addition, as of 2013, it looks like, there were 232 million international migrants in the world … people who were moving from one country to another, whether as refugees, as legal or illegal international migrant workers, or as legal or illegal immigrants.

Link: “On the move: 232 million migrants in the world,” by The Guardian, copyright 2016 …  https://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2013/sep/11/on-the-move-232-million-migrants-in-the-world ..

Link: “International Labour Standards on Migrant workers,” by the International Labour Organization … http://www.ilo.org/global/standards/subjects-covered-by-international-labour-standards/migrant-workers/lang–en/index.htm ..

Displaced, Out-of-Place, and Migrant Peoples: 3.3% of the World Population

Thus, of the 7.6 billion people in the world today, there is a ‘unsettled world’ of displaced, out-of-place, or migrant peoples numbering roughly 250 million … which would be about 3.3 percent of the world population.

On the noospheric plane, the energies are of unsettled or sometimes inappropriate place or location of peoples in the world. Those energies, I feel, were sparked to greater noospheric movement by last night’s solar input to Earth.

There was underscoring of the need for humanitarian outreach to the displaced peoples of the world, and to those whose lot might be bettered by corporate philanthropic gestures.

THE DECLINING GROWTH RATE IN WORLD POPULATION

On the bright side, I see that the world population growth is predicted to decline to zero by the end of this century. See …

Link: “World Population Growth,” by Max Roser, Hannah Ritchie, and Esteban Ortiz-Ospina, published in 2013; most recent substantial revision in May 2019 … https://ourworldindata.org/world-population-growth/ ..

A PLEA TO EARTH PEOPLES TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF HUMANITARIAN CARE WORLDWIDE

I ask heads of nations, heads of philanthropic organizations, religious social work groups, and heads of global corporations to expand beyond the current envelope of humanitarian care, into a new arena of humanitarian endeavor.

Let each of us Lightworkers, individually, do what we can to propose solutions to unhappiness in the world today, and to lift up the world through prayer, positive visualization, and peaceful contemplation.

MASSES OF DISPLACED OR OUT-OF-PLACE BEINGS ON ASTRAL AND MENTAL PLANES

On the astral and mental planes there are beings, non-human, that have no physical form, that mirror or reflect, cumulatively add to, or perhaps even mainly cause the displaced energies on the human physical plane. There may be, I intuit, large masses of these astral and/or mental beings, whose energies are ill suited to those of ascending Earth.

ON THE RELOCATION OF ASTRAL / MENTAL BEINGS NOW IN PROGRESS

These ‘out-of-place” beings need to be transported to new locations in the Universe. They may have no Ascension teams with which our own personal Ascension teams may communicate. Nevertheless, we can be certain there are forces in the Universe … such as, for instance, the Elohim, the Powers and Principalities, the Thrones and Dominions, and the like … which stand ready to relocate those beings to off-world places with which their energies resonate.

This off-world transport apparently is, I feel, now in underway, through the efforts of beings on the planes higher than the physical, astral, or mental; beings of the fifth and higher dimensions.

Thus I recommend this prayer, that I have begun to say, which addresses beings of all manner, whether in physical form, or in astral and/or mental form …

Hello, Dear Ones,

Here are thoughts on the Los Angeles economy. There’s a Summary after the video; new text is in green font.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I had a few thoughts about the current economy in Los Angeles, and also in Colorado and New Mexico.

On Reducing Landfill by Reusing Road Repaving ‘Scrabble’

I was watching the roads being scraped up in preparation for being repaved today, here in Los Angeles. And I wonder if the scrabble that’s scraped up from the roads might be used on dirt roads to improve them. That would save on landfill expenses in landfills, and it would also improve the dirt roads in outlying areas if it’s nontoxic and doesn’t cause too many problems.

I feel as if it’s worth looking into. And also, I’m thinking, other large landfill issues: If there are items that are being used for landfills a lot, let’s look at the ways to recycle them and use them to improve our lives here in Los Angeles.

On Reusing Substandard Thrift Store Fabric as Clothing and Blankets for the Los Angeles Homeless, Rather than Sending It to Other Countries

For instance, the thrift stores, such as Goodwill and Salvation Army, I think, take substandard clothes and ship them off to other countries. But yet, here we have a great problem with homeless people here in Los Angeles.

Why not use those clothes for the homeless here in the Los Angeles area? And why not use the fabric that’s otherwise unusable to make blankets for the homeless?

The Hidden Cost of Not Providing Immunizations and Infectious Disease Care for Illegal Aliens in Los Angeles

Also, with regard to the homeless, I have read that there are many homeless people that aren’t eligible for health care, such as HIV care and hepatitis care, and care for all of the infectious diseases.

My feeling is that those that are not eligible, because of, say, citizenship, or whatever, are most likely in danger of infecting the homeless people who do have health care here in the Los Angeles area … I think there are 6,000 homeless people here in the San Fernando Valley; 60,000 in Los Angeles County, and probably many more. (1)

The cost to us, in the long term, is great, for not providing health care to those, say, undocumented aliens and so forth, that don’t qualify for health care. This is because they’re living with other homeless people who do get health care, and those people get sicker.

The Importance of Counselling Centers for the Los Angeles Homeless, to Assist Them in Returning to a Productive Life

Also, I feel, … I was talking to a friend about this, and I agree … I think that counselling for the homeless is a major, and perhaps overlooked issue here in Los Angeles.

It is vitally important that the homeless here in the San Fernando Valley have centers available … small, local centers would be best; but even one center or two centers in the San Fernando Valley would be good … that help people get back on their feet by providing information about shelters (of which, I feel, there are very few), and also, especially, about jobs and substance abuse programs, and so forth.

The Hidden Cost of Hiring Illegal Aliens in the Outlying Areas of Los Angeles, Such as the Farming Community

I had one other thought regarding the economy all over the United States and the issue of illegal aliens. Here in Los Angeles, in the outlying areas and farming communities, and so forth, there’s a tendency to hire illegal aliens because their labor is cheaper, right?

I was thinking this over the other night, and it occurred to me that the money that we’re paying as United States citizens … the taxes that we’re paying, that help support the indigenous homeless population, and from which, often, this labor is drawn … these taxes that we pay for welfare, and so forth, for these people are increasing the burden of tax expense of those who employ the homeless … and of everyone else.

And so, our salaries do not stretch as far as they used to, because of the increased tax burden.

And in addition, products have increased in price … Maybe because of this. Because, basically, we’re employing cheap labor, and there are hidden costs. And one of the hidden costs consists of the taxes that we pay for the welfare of the people that aren’t paying into the taxes.

In other words, this whole homeless population is not paying into taxes. Yet, our tax dollars are helping to support them, in terms of health and housing, and so forth.

So there is a hidden cost in employing illegal aliens. So why not hire, locally, people who are citizens instead?

The Upward Spiral of Goods and Utilities, and the Downward Spiral of Living Conditions for Those Paying into Our Tax Base

The thing is that, overall, this country is based on the notion that most people will get jobs, and will pull their own weight and contribute to the economy, you see. And pay taxes and so forth.

So that that smaller percentage of people who are down on their luck and can’t get work for a while, will be able to get by. And, for instance, mothers will have enough milk for their children through the milk program, and so older people who don’t have a safety net financially, will have a minimum amount that they can get by with.

So the whole notion … that most of the people in this country will pull their own weight financially, and will provide taxes … is critical to our situation right now.

What we have is an influx of many, many people who aren’t in a position to pull their own weight. And so, taxes go up.

And so, more people come in, who are willing to work for very little, because they’re not paying taxes. And then, the people that attain citizenship during this process … they begin to bear the burden of, and begin to see the trouble that’s caused by the people who are immigrating illegally into this country.

We’re in a spiral, right now, of higher and higher prices of goods. And very few people are able to afford very much.

The utilities … the water, electricity, gas, and trash collection … are going up immensely here in Los Angeles as well.

On Resigning Ourselves to the Future Prospect of Sustainable Living, Similar to That in Our Grandparents’ and Great-Grandparents’ Time

So we need to look at sustainable living. We need to step out of the system, insofar as possible, and make friends with our neighbors, and try and get by with a lot less, as was done in the days of my grandparents. That’s what I think.

On the Prospect of a Shift in Attitude, by Those Who Have Achieved Citizenship, Toward the Issue of Illegal Immigration

And in the meantime, I feel that those people who have entered the country and attained citizenship, will become aware of, and their attitudes will shift with regard to illegal immigration into the country. I hope that’s the case, anyway.

On Starting Where We Find Our Feet to Be Standing

My own feeling is that the place to start with improvement in the economic lives of a people is at home … in one’s own country. Why should economic opportunities be scarce, south of the border? Why are they now scarcer and scarcer in Los Angeles? 

We must start where we are, where we live; speak with our friends and neighbors, and do what we can to change what must be changed, and to find innovative means of subsistence for ourselves, for our families, and for our communities.

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

Dear Ones,

HOMELESS STATISTICS IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

I read there were about 7,600 homeless in the San Fernando Valley, and 58,000 in LA County as of last year … I read this in:

Link: “Homelessness Increased In Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley: The rising cost of housing, along with a housing shortage, was acknowledged by officials as a top cause of the homeless problem,” by Alexander Nguyen (Patch Staff) – updated  https://patch.com/california/woodlandhills/homelessness-increased-woodland-hills-san-fernando-valley ..

SCARCITY OF HOMELESS SHELTERS IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Because of the influx of homeless into the nearby neighborhoods, I’ve been looking around for homeless shelters in the San Fernando Valley … It seems like shelters for men are scarce. It looks like housing will be built, but maybe is not available yet?

Law enforcement can ask a homeless person to move on, but where will they move to, if no housing resources are available?

ON THE NOTION OF ASSIGNING A PARKING LOT … SUCH AS THE VACANT COSTCO PARKING LOT ON ROSCOE … FOR A TEMPORARY TENT COMMUNITY

I had a thought about the Costco that closed at 21300 Roscoe Blvd in Canoga Park (across from the Salvation Army Store) … it has a big, fenced parking lot which might temporarily be used for tents, if porta-potties and security could be arranged … What do you all think about this possibility?

SMALL POD HOUSING DESIGNED BY VALLEY RESCUE MISSION

Also a possibility, in lieu of or in addition to tenting in a parking lot, might be small pod housing such as that designed by Valley Rescue Mission:

Link: “Local News: These small pods could bring a big solution for LA County’s homeless crisis,” by Susan Abram, sabram@scng.com , Daily News, published: 

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH AND FOOT TRAFFIC ON OUR PUBLIC STREETS

This is a very difficult topic. For myself, as a Neighborhood Watch captain, I want to help my neighbors keep my neighborhood safe, and at the same time not to trespass on other people’s freedom of movement. People walk up and down our public streets all day long, and that’s fine. It’s when they stop and stay around that residents get uneasy.

LOITERING LAWS IN LOS ANGELES

In response to that, there are loitering laws in LA, both in general and also at schools and places where children generally congregate, but I’ve read that they only apply if a person has criminal intent. Most likely a prior criminal record would figure in.

I’ve read there is also a law against walking onto private property and peeking into the door or window, and that law applies if the property is not abandoned. See:

Link: “PC 647: Loitering,” http://esfandilawfirm.com/crimes/loitering-pc-647/

CAN WE PROVIDE SAFE PLACES FOR THE HOMELESS TO STORE THEIR PROPERTY?

I’ve also read that the City of LA passed law 56.11 last year to the effect that a (presumably homeless) person’s storage of items on sidewalks and parkways and in alleys must be no more than what can fit into the garbage bin … see:

Link: “L.A. council OKs law limiting homeless people’s belongings to what can fit in a trash bin,” by Gale Holland, Contact Reporter, 30 March 2016, 3:42 pm, http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-belongings-20160331-story.html ..

I also read that the City has no right to put these belongings into the trash:

Link: “Judge Says Los Angeles Has to Stop Taking Homeless People’s Stuff: A new injunction limits the city’s ability to seize and destroy the property of Skid Row residents,” by Elijah Chiland, 14 April 2016, 9:55 am PDT, https://la.curbed.com/2016/4/14/11428886/los-angeles-homeless-property-seizure ..

The same article suggests the need … I would say citywide … for storage facilities for possessions of transient people.

ON WORKING WITHIN THE LAW FOR A SOLUTION TO THE DIFFICULT PROBLEM OF HOMELESSNESS

I guess what I’m trying to say is, as responsible citizens, and taking this difficult problem into consideration, let us work within the spirit of the legal system. As forward-looking people let us look to fresh solutions to the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles.

  • What is really going on, economically, here?
  • How can we tweak the economy to provide jobs for those who want them, but can’t find them?
  • As a concerned community with humane intent, what may we also do for those who don’t want work, or who, for a constellation of reasons, are unemployable?

In the end, I am hoping that these last prove to be few, and that good work and good housing will be found for most.

MY THANKS TO CALIFORNIA FOR ITS POSITIVE REGARD FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED

I would like to add that I have traveled here and there in America in recent years, and have found, in general, that California’s attitude toward the underprivileged is a standout in many ways; especially, as regards …

  • positive social action,
  • lack of prejudice, and a positive attitude toward diversity, and
  • desire to abide within the spirit of the law.

For that depth of human kindness, and for our mutual vision of a new tomorrow in this beautiful land, I thank each of you, from the bottom of my heart.

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

China and the United States: Human Rights and Illegal Immigration . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 31 October 2017

Dear Ones,

Here’s a video about China and the United States, and their views on human rights and illegal immigration. There’s a spiffed-up Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I’m here to talk a little about human rights and human trafficking in China and in the United States. The ‘take’ that I have so far is what you might call only a beginner’s ‘take’.

I became interested in China’s annual reports on the United States’ infringement of human rights a few years ago. I was just looking over the most recent one this last month. (1) This is my précis:

I think China states that America falls down in human rights with regard to equal pay for women, discrimination against minorities (to do with economics, especially), and also, as I recall, with regard to crime and violence in the streets, and drug use and the drug trade and so forth.

There may be other things. But the underlying understanding that I got from looking over that report was that, in China, I feel, they greatly value an orderly society, a harmony in society, and like that. To my mind, it feels like they look aghast at the disorderliness of the American people.

And I will say that the people here are very different in their social values, from the people of China, apparently … from the Chinese ideal of values. People in the United States value more the liberty to go exploring and figuring things out, and making a way for themselves, and so forth. They value their freedom to pursue their happiness, and like that.

To my mind, a natural consequence of this value of liberty and the pursuit of happiness is the disorderliness that we see in this society.

In addition, we offer a chance for other people, from other parts of the world, to become citizens. That results in cultural diversity. And in some geographic areas it results in discrimination, because people who are all of a particular race or culture, or like that, are confronted … suddenly sometimes … with people whose culture is very different … or perhaps their physical characteristics are very different. And then there’s a commotion as the cultures become accustomed to each other.

In the cosmopolitan areas it’s different. There’s much more exposure to diversity. And so people don’t react so much to diversity when they see it. Unless you’re in an area like South Central Los Angeles, where everybody is de colores, and so then a white person, a Caucasian, comes in, and they look very different. Or if you’re in West Los Angeles, it’s the exact opposite, you know?

We have here a randomness, a drive to individuality, the Horatio Alger story, and these create less harmony, in a way, but more tolerance for diversity, in another way.

So then I thought: I’ll just see what the United States has to say about human rights, and so forth. So I checked out the “CIA Factbook.” And there, there’s a section on Countries … each Country. I especially looked up the United States first, and then China … among others.

For each Country, there are various sections. After Government and so forth, there’s a section that has to do with global problems with some portion of which the particular country is faced.

If we live in the United States, we all know about the United States Government system. So I looked up the last section, labeled “Transnational Issues,” as I couldn’t quite fathom what it would be about. (2)

What it said is the we, in the United States, are facing problems with the drug trade. Also it said we have problems with money laundering, which is a concept I’m not too clear on.

It didn’t mention crime and violence, but everybody knows that there are problems with crime and violence here, and in other parts of the world. 

Then I looked under China. There the “CIA Factbook” indicated intertwined global problems, especially human trafficking. (3)

So then I looked up a very recent congressional report on human trafficking (4) and a  horrifying State Department report on human trafficking all around the world (5) … and I got a notion about what that entailed. It had to do, not just with children being sold for the sex work trade, but also children being sold into hazardous occupations that involved the use of chemicals that might be damaging to the body, and so forth. And sometimes, children die because of their exposure to difficult work conditions, and so forth. I’m not sure of the mortality rate; I didn’t go into it that far.

I was thinking this over quite a bit, because here we have a conundrum. China is stating that the United States falls down on human rights. And yet China is very big on human trafficking.

And so I looked a little more into human trafficking in China, and found out there were a lot of Korean refugees that pleaded to be admitted to China. Then, in the “CIA Factbook” for China, I found out that China only allows people of Chinese descent, or Chinese parentage, to become Chinese citizens. It’s a closed society.

So, China was faced with Koreans and other nationalities who, to them, are a different culture and a different race from them … who are what you might call illegal aliens … many illegal aliens … entering their country; and what to do with them, because their government could not accommodate them. And so their decision, based, I feel, on their very high ideals of harmony … harmonic relations in the world … was to create a kind of indentured servant system … what we call ‘human trafficking’ … to provide these people with a basis of work in the world … a productive social role … in exchange for the most fundamental human needs, such as shelter, clothing, and food.

On the trip up to Ojai today, I kept thinking about this. I kept thinking: What is the connection here? What is the story? You know? How could it be that two big countries … gigantic as far as geography is concerned … should both hold forth that their government offered the very best in human rights … And yet, each could accuse the other of being the very worst in human rights. It just didn’t make any sense to me.

And finally, I thought of the illegal alien situation here in California, and in other parts of the United States. And I realized that the situation that China faced with regard to the Korean immigrants, was very similar to the situation that the United States faces with regard to the influx of illegal aliens from South of the Border.

So then I looked at how the United States treats its illegal aliens, compared to how China treats hers. And I realized that, in general, we hunt them down and deport them back to their countries if we can. (I’ve read that China does this with Korean refugees as well.)

Now, as to which system …

  • deportation, or what’s sometimes termed repatriation,
  • or human trafficking,
  • or some version of that …  maybe a more lenient version of that, such as indentured servitude, that was practiced for a limited term in order for a person to learn a skill or trade, during the times of Benjamin Franklin in America

… is the more understanding, or connecting with, human rights, I don’t know!

One is based on a very orderly notion of civilization and human affairs … that’s the Chinese.

And the other, the United States way, is based on a kind of a free-for-all, you know? Every man for himself, in a way. Of course, we’re very socialized now, and we offer many socialized services to our citizens. But the big concern, in recent years, has been:

How can we afford to offer these socialized benefits to people who aren’t contributing to our tax base. And I think that’s a reasonable consideration:

How can we stay afloat economically, and still assimilate what was called, in ages past, the poor and huddled masses of the world? In those days, when we opened our doors to everyone, we had plenty of free land that needed settling. But now, our urban centers are very overpopulated, and our social services are very overstretched.

So the question is: What can we do? What can we do, to do the best by these people that come knocking our door; the most humane thing that we can do? But at the same time, something that keeps our country afloat. You know what I mean?

So there you have it. I think that the basis of the concern that both countries have, has to do with how to treat our illegal aliens.

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

A New Take on Human Involvement in Global Warming . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 20 September 2017; revised on 24 September 2017

Dear Ones,

I got a heads-up from SuspiciousObservers on Youtube … www.youtube.com … today, regarding a new paper out on the topic of global warming. The paper is by the folks in charge of government policy on global warming.

They apparently say that the facts of global warming do not match the theory; that we need to revisit the topic; that they think global warming taking place does not have to do with humans, but rather with the Sun and volcanoes.

Here is the article …

Link: “Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C,” by Richard J. Millar, Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Pierre Friedlingstein, et al., in Nature Geoscience, Volume 10, pp 741-747 (2017) … https://doi.org/10.1038/ngeo3031published online 18 September 2017 … https://www.nature.com/articles/ngeo3031 ..

I remember, when the issue of human responsibility for global warming was first proposed by a learned group of scientists, and equally learned group of scientists proposed, in a position paper, that global warming was not to do with humans.

I myself feel that the issue is much larger than human activity on Earth, having to do with global warming and cooling trends over the long aeons during which life has existed on Earth … always remembering that Martians are the Elder Race here on Earth, by billions of years.

Here is a good site for further exploration of the pros and cons of the theory that humans are responsible for global warming …

Link: “Is Human Activity Primarily Responsible for Global Climate Change?,” by ProCon.org, 13 May 2019 … https://climatechange.procon.org/ ..

And here is a new video by SuspiciousObservers on the topic …

Dear Ones,

I asked some folks on the astral plane why they like to kill. Here are the unexpectable answers I clairly heard. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

On the psychic plane, I just asked a bunch of people who like to kill people, why it is they like to kill. My notion is, if we understood better, why people want to kill, then we could work with that in terms of spiritual healing. I got a lot of answers … very interesting answers.

Crime Ratiocination by Murderers

  1. Enjoys Seeing the Spirit Depart from the Body. One gentleman said that he liked to see the light come out of the person’s body when they die; he liked to see that show of light coming out. I guess he meant the Spirit of the person? Or maybe the astral form? Probably the light of the Soul coming out. Anyway, that Is what he saw … I think he said he liked to observe people dying. Yeah, that Is how it was; not necessarily killing them.
  2. Their Faces Relax – He Brings Them Peace. Then another person said that he liked to see a person die because then their face relaxed, and he figured that they were at peace. So he figured, I guess … i Am putting words in his mouth right now … I guess he figured that he was bringing them peace by killing them.
  3. He Likes to See Them Writhe on the Ground. Then another guy said he liked to see them writhe around on the ground; he enjoyed that.
  4. She Likes to Hear Them Beg for Mercy. And then, a lady said that she liked to hear them beg for mercy.
  5. She Likes the Feel of Cash in Her Hands. Let me see… And another lady said she just liked the feel of cash in her hands after she killed them … I think she was talking about killing people in old folks’ homes for their families, and their families would give her $20 grand for each murder … Although she did not say that, I just thought that … it was an intuitive thing.
  6. He Likes Rifling Through Their Pockets. Then somebody else chimed in that they liked killing people because then they enjoyed rifling through their pockets for cash … I guess they mean their wallet, or like that?

And that seems like the more expectable response, does it not? It is what people think is the motive: Maybe money. And sometimes they say ‘crimes of passion’ … but nobody answered that way … although that is a frequent MO (modus operandi) in the detective novels. Let me see … Who else said something?

  1. He Likes That His Employer Feels He Does Good Work. Then one man said that he liked that his employer was satisfied with the work he had done, after he had killed someone. So, he was pleased to fulfill the expectations of his employer.
  2. She Likes the Feeling That She is a Powerful Woman. Oh, yes, there was a lady; she kills by injecting people with drugs so it seems to be a drug overdose. She said she liked to feel the feeling that she was a powerful woman.
  3. The Man Who Carved Patterns in the Legs of Dead Children in a Trance State. So, let me see: Anybody else? I talked to a whole bunch of people, one after the other … Oh, there is a guy … he likes to cut up \ young girls, prepubescent girls, and carve intricate things into their bodies (I think he meant he carved patterns on the skin of their legs). And he didn’t have anything to say about why he did that. It is almost like he goes into a trance state when he does that. So he had no response about it.
  4. The Man Who Relives Being Molested and Threatened with Death as a Child. And there is another guy who likes to ‘off’ young children. He likes to kill young children after sexually molesting them. He said he likes to see that moment when he was sexually molested as a child flash through his mind and be done with, every time he does that. So, he was molested, and injured, actually, I think, in some other way than being killed, obviously. But it must have felt like death to him; so he is reliving that childhood incident that was so traumatic to him, and getting it over with.
  5. Blood Sacrifice as a Sacrament to Celebrate the Renascence of Life. Yet another: I asked about the people that participated in blood sacrifice … the killing of women for black magic ceremonies, and a man said that they enjoyed doing that, I guess … [Q: Do you enjoy doing that? A: yes] …  they enjoy doing that as a sacrament to celebrate the renascence of life. That is how they said it …

Thoughts on Restorative Justice for Murderers, Especially Serial Killers

And all in the space of a couple of minutes, I got all those responses. They are very varied; very different from the motive that they say in the detective novels. So I am suggesting that maybe the people who work with murderers … say, in the prisons, or like that … might want to ask that question:

Why is it that you like to do that? … especially with the serial killer. And then, work with that response, in the ways that only you know how to. I am sure you will come up with the answers.

This is Alice, signing off in the Lion’s Gate (which will be August 8, 2017) with a kind of a lion-roaring message.

You all take care. Love you lots. I hope you find joy in your lives.

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

Profligacy . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 18 May 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • Wanting to Be Popular; Ego Fears; Threat Mitigation
    • On Facing One’s Fears

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about profligacy. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I came across a thought, today, about the reason why people behave profligate sexually sometimes. This applies both to what’s known in psychological terms as nymphomania in women, and satyriasis in men.

Wanting to Be Popular; Ego Fears; Threat Mitigation

I used to think it might have to do with wanting to be popular with one’s ingroup. But I think, in a deeper sense, it has to do with fear; fear of threat to the ego, fear of threat to the very existence, because of the existence of other people. And I think that, in a very deep, subconscious sense, at the lowest levels of the subconscious mind, the thought is that, by sharing sexual intimacy with other people, the threat is mitigated.

On Facing One’s Fears

So: Threat Mitigation … And the solution to that would be to face the fears. To face the fears of ego dissolution. To just face fear in general, as it manifests in the physical body. That’s the quickest way to eliminate fear; is to see how it manifests in the physical; place your awareness there, and wait until the physical body changes.

That’s my thought on this. I think it applies overall, to many cultures today, because in general, sexual profligacy, which used to be termed, in psychological lingo, an abnormality, is prevalent amongst many of our young people.

All right, you all, take care. Have a wonderful Summer Solstice.

How Our Kind Thoughts for Planet Uranus Will Help Earth . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 24 May 2017; published on 25 June 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

This video is about channeling from the youngest planet in our Solar System, Sun’s beautiful little child Uranus. Some troubles she has had, and how these have been reflected in Earth’s noosphere and in the capitalist philosophy so prevalent in the world today. What we can do to uplift her, Earth’s noosphere, and Earth’s economic models, all at once. An edited Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

A couple of days ago I channeled some very interesting information from the planet Uranus, which is one-dimensional right now; it is our baby sister planet, amongst the Council of Nine.

And she was repeating … like a tiny little child, she was saying … it is so cute; she was saying:

February January thing   (x3)

… over and over again. Although she was so tiny, like an infant, I think what she meant was feeling like she was backwards, or going backwards in time, or devolving, or just not good enough.

It could also be that this was a subconscious morphing of the metaphor “I’m a little behind”, … aka “I’m a little backward” … leading to “February January thing.” The word ‘behind’ would be a subconscious image suggesting “Uranus” as well, which could then raise the issue from the personal to the planetary arena.

And I am pretty sure that has to do with the massive amount of negative noospheric messages that have been coming through, with regard to the first chakra negative … and mainly to do with “F— Y– in the A——,” or “F— Y– in the B——H—“, and like that. There are just a massive number of messages that have come through.

And they also have to do with rectal intercourse, and the social notions about that, and the legal ramifications of that. And also the cruelty that has been going back and forth between members of the straight community and members of the gay community for a long time now.

And it also has to do with the basis of capitalism, which has to do with competition, often amongst men … but also amongst women as to …

  • which woman is the alpha female;
  • which woman gets to win or keep a man (or all the men), or as to
  • who has the better batch of children …

deriving from the feral drive to alpha male or alpha female dominance in wolf packs and ape groupings and so forth. A toned down version of this feral drive to dominance is the social game known as one-upmanship.

So the situation with the planet Uranus has to do with the economic basis of the nations of Earth as well.

I think the thing to do is to help that, because the planetary influence is the Planet Uranus, and there is an obvious subconscious symbolism or metaphor going on there, with the planet Uranus (as ‘Uranus’ is a homonym for ‘your anus’). And to help her, the thing to do is to think of her … think of our youngest planet … and instead of what she is been saying, think with love:

January February thing   (x3)  … or …

That January February thing is just for me!   (x3)

So in that way she can get a more positive notion of her own energy, and the importance of her energy in our Solar System. We, as human beings, reflect all that. And so, there will be those energy strains in us, of negativity regarding the first chakra, if her feeling is negative. And vice versa.

So we can really help our Solar System in this way, by thinking very positively towards the basal chakra; the one that is the fundament of all the other chakras. The source of abundance.

That is my thought about this. And I have to say: My greatest good wishes to our youngest planet. May she thrive and prosper. And may she see many beings on her, until she reaches the same destiny that all the planets are bound to, although they have taken that road earlier than she. God bless her, God bless all the planets, and God bless our Sun. God bless our galaxy, and God bless our universe. And thanks for a chance to experience them.

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

Dear Ones,

This video illustrates with two reincarnation stories God’s sense of humor, the law of karma, and how we can develop a more neutral mind. Also discussed are Soul wounding, cellular memories, and prenatal tendencies.

Some of the subject matter may offend some, as it has to do with the Hitler death camps and the Nazi masterplan. If it does, I apologize in advance. If the reader is able to listen at a distance from the personality (admittedly a very difficult endeavor), the stories may provide new insight into their Soul journey. At least, that is my sincere hope.

There is an edited Summary after the video; after that are additional sections not in the video. Text in blue font has been added to the anthology “Incarnational Memories” …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I thought I would talk a little today about God’s sense of humor. And I have to say … we used to say in the country at home: Right from the git-go … It is going to be very hard to understand His sense of humor unless you feel very neutral about the law of karma. It took me a while to get used to it.

First Incarnational Story: The Soul that Wanted to Chant God’s Name Morning and Night

Well, I know a story of a person who passed on … I heard this clairaudiently … and then his Soul was thinking that maybe it would like to reincarnate. I might have told you this story … Maybe it would like to reincarnate.

And so it was mulling all that over on the astral plane, very close to me because it was somebody I used to know. And his Spirit guides came along, and they were chatting together, right? They offered him two or three different possibilities. They said: Would you like to reincarnate now?

And he said: Well, yeah, that might be good.

Like that, right? And then they said: Well, there’s a couple of possibilities…

And they kind of went off in a corner, and they talked about a couple of possibilities. And the one that they settled on was the one that I heard about. And that was: I’d like to sing God’s name for my new incarnation, my whole life long.

Apparently, they saw the slate for all over Earth, of available pregnant ladies, and they said: Ah, here’s a possibility; here in India.

You know, in India, lots of times, people spend their lives chanting God’s name, in any number of occupations. And so, he knew about India, and he said: Sure.

And so, his Soul started to descend down to the earthly plane again. The mother was willing, I assume, and he was on his way down, and then his Spirit guides said: Oh, by the way, you’re going to be a woman!

And he said: What?

He was still going down, though. And then they said: Oh, by the way, it’s a brothel in Bombay!

And he said: Oooh!

And the next instant, he was there with his mother.

The Law of Karma

So there are ups and downs of reincarnation, because of the working out of the law of karma, as Bill Ballard …

Link: “Pearls2U,” Bill Ballard’s youtube channel …  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe5SWADvxgHKQgdJ-wqrWzA ..

… calls them, the resolution of our magnetics; of our electromagnetic field. And other people call them the clarification of that field; the return to the great Light that we really are: Our Soul Light and our true splendor.

So this working out of karma is a very neutral kind of thing, you know?

Now I want to tell you about another instance. It is the kind of instance where you are likely to take sides; but God does not. And the Law of Karma does not; it is very neutral, ok?

. . . . .

Second Incarnational Story: The Hitler Death Camp Sublieutenant

I know of an instance that had to do with one of the concentration camps … I wonder, could it have been Auschwitz-Birkenau? … during the Second World War in Germany, where many people of Jewish faith lost their lives. There was an instance of a person incarnated as a man … a fair-haired Caucasian man, and those were greatly favored by that regime as being a superior race.

That man was chosen to supervise this concentration camp, or to have an authoritative role in this concentration camp. And some of the things that he did … What should I say? … it is such a painful vision for me! … he did personally dispatch, with his pistol, quite a few people of Jewish culture, and many children; many families, including my own.

Incarnational Stories by Alice: Alice’s Vision of Herself and Her Family in the Concentration Camp. In a vision, I seemed to recall this part of his story very vividly, because at the time I was only three years old. I was a little girl three years of age. I had, in that incarnation, it seemed, a younger sister, about 2 years of age (who was my next eldest sister in today’s lifetime) and an infant brother (who was my brother in today’s lifetime). My father in that lifetime I have not met in this lifetime, but it seemed to me my mother in that lifetime was a woman meditation teacher I had in this lifetime … in fact, a devoted student of the very man who murdered her in that other lifetime, in the Nazi concentration camp.

When my family arrived at the camp, murder and death were all around us. The man with the gun told me that, if I would be his wife, I could save the lives of my family. He put a wedding ring on my finger, and after one night, I remember we stood, in the morning light, I on his right side, before my family. My father stood on my left, before us. Next to him was my mother, holding my infant brother. On my right, before me, was my younger sister.

Hope blossomed in my breast, that they would be saved. Just as I felt this, the blonde man next to me raised his handgun … a Luger, I think it is called … as if to shoot my father. I looked up, tears in my eyes, and begged him not to. With no thought at all, quick as a snake. he turned the pistol at a downward slant, because of my slight height, and shot. The bullet angled down through my left shoulder, into my body, and I feel down dead. 

Yet through the ghostly vision of my astral form, suddenly freed from physical form in this time of great distress, I saw this man raise his pistol and, with utter sangfroid, murder every member of my family, except for my young sister. Then, taking the wedding ring from my lifeless hand, he placed it on the finger of my sister …

. . . . .

The list is very long, of the murders that this man did during that time. Now, he did not think of it, at that time, as that. His thought was that it would be better for the world if people of Jewish culture were all dead. He obviously didn’t believe in reincarnation. And he had a great list of atrocities to his name.

Now, keep in mind that this is all a game. It is like playing a game of football, you know? One team, maybe, plays a lot rougher than another team. But in the long run, through the incarnations, the teams keep getting switched.

  • So on one incarnation, you are in the rough team. And you are always winning the football games; your team wins all the time.
  • And in the next incarnation, what do you know? You are in the gentle side that always gets smashed; the side that is always losing.

On and on it goes like this; you may go 1-2-3 on the rough side, and then 4-5-6 on the gentle side. But it has to even out for you.

So, to get back to this gentleman who was doing what he felt to be the right thing for Earth, in the concentration camps … he passed on. So after a while, he decided to reincarnate. Before I talk about that, though, I should include a little more about his concentration camp experience;

Part of the thing he did over there [in the concentration camp] had to do with rape … You know, that was commonplace there. And part of it had to do with killing. So when he decided to reincarnate, how he must have phrased it … I am gathering this after the fact … is that he did not want to rape any longer. And that was what he said to his Spirit guides, apparently. So he came back.

And I can only imagine, on his way down, the Spirit guides saying: How’s it going?

He is saying: I’m going down; I’ve determined it.

And he gets about half way down, and the Spirit guides say: By the way, you’re going to be Jewish!

And that, in fact, is apparently what happened; he became Jewish. Now when he was born, because of his very recent past lifetime, as soon as he found out he was Jewish, he felt that life was not worth living. And that is because, in the past lifetime, he thought that Jewish people were not worth existing on Earth. In other words, he has gone through his life never knowing why he felt that way, but in fact, his past lifetime determined that.

And in addition, at an early age, he suffered a self-inflicted genital mutilation that made it impossible for him to rape anyone physically.

God’s Sense of Humor and Our Soul Healing

Now where does God’s sense of humor come in? The sense of humor comes in, first of all, if you can imagine he became that which he previously felt was unworthy of being alive … There is a balancing of energies going on there, you see?

And the second thing that happened was that the form his ‘not raping’ took was so unexpected. The opposite acting out from raping is to rape oneself in that way; to mutilate one’s genitals.

And further, he had built up a very large samskara, a prenatal tendency, by all those deaths that had happened; he had built up a huge tendency to kill and to rape. And so, what happened was that his astral body, his emotional body, carried those tendencies into the astral realm.

And so, while he was sleeping, and while his mental mind was not working, he was out there actually attempting to kill people on the astral plane with his hatred, that was part of that prenatal tendency. And also to rape people, through the words that were stored in his second chakra (in his lower body) from his previous lifetime.

Now this may seem pretty horrible to you, but in fact, this is the way that the law of karma works. And if you stand back from it … if you stand back and just look at it neutrally …

  • You will see energetics at work that need to be resolved.
  • You will see clarification of the energy body that needs to take place.
  • And you won’t be thinking so much about the right and wrong of the Earthly roles that we undertake in various lifetimes. Because over many lifetimes, they are bound to even out. And all of us, every single one of us right now, needs to do a huge amount of clearing.

It is like football, you know? We win, we lose; we lose, we win! It goes on and on, and finally, at the end of the day, everybody has to tend to their injuries. Everybody gets in the hospital. Everybody does their best to cure what is ailing them from all of these injuries that they have received, over the dramatic display of the third dimensional duality game.

Well, do not be shocked! I will probably come up with some more of this from time to time, because I have finally come up with the point of view that it is interesting. It is like a Light show and Dark show, flickering like a movie.

And it is not that important. But it is important to heal our wounding and to cure ourselves of all of the cellular memories, the trauma that we’ve incurred over all the lifetimes.

Well, if you find yourself in that situation, or if you notice that you have been in the football game, do not feel bad, ok? It is just a game.

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

RUDOLF HESS (HEß)

I sense a Soul resonance of the Hitler Death Camp Sublieutenant described above and one of Adolf Hitler’s ministers, Rudolf Walter Richard Hess (Heß) …

The Life of Rudolf Hess

Wikipedia has this to say about the life of Rudolf Hess …

“After the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, Hess was appointed Deputy Führer of the NSDAP [the Nazi Party] and shortly received a post in Hitler’s cabinet as Minister without Portfolio. He was also appointed in 1938 to the Cabinet Council, and in 1939 to the Council of Ministers for Defense of the Reich. When Hitler decreed in 1939 that Hermann Göring was his official successor, Hess was named as the next in line. In addition to appearing on Hitler’s behalf at speaking engagements and rallies, Hess signed into law much of the legislation, including the Nuremberg Laws of 1935, which stripped the Jews of Germany of their rights in the lead-up to the Holocaust.

“Hess continued to be interested in aviation, learning to fly the more advanced aircraft that were coming into development at the start of World War II. On 10 May 1941 he undertook a solo flight to Scotland, where he hoped to arrange peace talks with the Duke of Hamilton, whom he believed to be prominent in opposition to the British government. Hess was immediately arrested on his arrival and was held in British custody until the end of the war, when he was returned to Germany to stand trial in the Nuremberg Trials of major war criminals in 1946. During much of the trial, he claimed to be suffering from amnesia, but later admitted this was a ruse. Hess was convicted of crimes against peace and conspiracy with other German leaders to commit crimes and was transferred to Spandau Prison in 1947, where he served a life sentence. Repeated attempts by family members and prominent politicians to win his early release were blocked by the Soviet Union. Still in custody in Spandau, he died by suicide in 1987 at the age of 93. After his death, the prison was demolished to prevent it from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine.” –from Link: “Rudolf Hess,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Hess … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported License … [Bracketed information and bolding are mine. –Alice]

What is Soul Resonance, in the Case of an Energetic Congruence Between Nazi War Criminals, Alive or Deceased, and Other People Now Living?

Whether the Soul resonance I felt, in this case, is incarnational (a past lifetime issue), or obsessional (that is, an entity obsession issue), or simply the chance visit of a ghost, or just admiration by a living person for another person, I cannot say.

Walk-In? If a person such as Rudolf Hess were to have been a prior incarnation of a person now living, then how might that be? As Rudolf Hess suicided in 1987, then the walk-in … into the currently living person … would have had to have taken place about 30 years ago.

The walk-in events I have read about in past occurred in the early youthful lives of the original tenants of the seized-upon bodies. In the putative case of a person now elderly, a Rudolf Hess walk-in would have to be hypothesized at a moment in middle age, possibly as the result of some Soul-searing event, or possibly a near-fatal illness, from which the original Soul fled the walked-into body.

Entity Obsession? I hypothesize that, in a case where extraordinary Soul wounding has occurred, it might be possible for the Soul-wounded person to be obsessed by the shadow of the personality of a person with very dark karma, such as a war criminal or sociopath, while that person is living, even though the war criminal or sociopath might be in prison.

Ghostly Haunting? After a war criminal or sociopath passes on, according to occult lore, it is possible that their astral form might haunt and obsess people for quite some time after their death, as the astral form purifies in the hellworlds.

So in that context, the restless ghost of a person who commits suicide or who is executed, and who is a war criminal, according to some schools of thought, might be said to have a propensity to ‘haunt’ people still living.

Fan Club? In the case of famous war criminals or sociopaths, just as in the case of great humanitarians, educators, musicians, and inspirational world leaders, I feel there may be fan clubs here on Earth. The books we read have a lot to do with who we are, so I feel it plausible that a person who develops a long-standing admiration for a very dark historical figure, and does lots of reading or viewing on the topic, may develop a Soul resonance with the war criminal or sociopath. To the clairly gifted, this might seem like an overlay of the photograph of the admired person, onto the energy field of the person who is his fan.

Whether any of these might be the case for the putative folks clairly envisioned, past and present, and described in this blog, who is to say? All this is cloaked in deepest mystery.

HERMAN WILHELM GOERING (GÖRING) 

I also sensed a Soul connection between the Hitler Death Camp Sublieutenant described in the above blog and Hermann Wilhelm Göring. Here is more on Göring …

The Life of Hermann Wilhelm Göring

“Hermann Wilhelm Göring (or Goering … 12 January 1893 – 15 October 1946) was a German political and military leader as well as one of the most powerful figures in the Nazi Party (NSDAP) that ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945. A veteran World War I fighter pilot ace, he was a recipient of the Pour le Mérite (The Blue Max). He was the last commander of Jagdgeschwader 1 (Jasta 1), the fighter wing once led by Manfred von Richthofen …” –from Link: “Hermann Göring,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_G%C3%B6ring … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported License

“An early member of the Nazi Party, Göring was among those wounded in Adolf Hitler’s failed Beer Hall Putsch in 1923. While receiving treatment for his injuries, he developed an addiction to morphine which persisted until the last year of his life. After Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, Göring was named as Minister Without Portfolio in the new government. One of his first acts as a cabinet minister was to oversee the creation of the Gestapo, which he ceded to Heinrich Himmler in 1934. Following the establishment of the Nazi state, Göring amassed power and political capital to become the second most powerful man in Germany. In 1935, he was appointed commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe (air force), a position he held until the final days of the regime. Upon being named Plenipotentiary of the Four Year Plan in 1936, Göring was entrusted with the task of mobilizing all sectors of the economy for war, an assignment which brought numerous government agencies under his control and helped him become one of the wealthiest men in the country. After the Fall of France in 1940, he was bestowed the specially created rank of Reichsmarschall, which gave him seniority over all officers in Germany’s armed forces …” –from Link: “Hermann Göring,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_G%C3%B6ring … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported License

By 1941, Göring was at the peak of his power and influence, and Hitler designated him as his successor and deputy in all his offices. As the Second World War progressed, Göring’s standing with Hitler and with the German public declined after the Luftwaffe proved incapable of preventing the Allied bombing of German cities and resupplying surrounded German forces in Stalingrad. Around that time, Göring increasingly withdrew from the military and political scene to devote his attention to collecting property and artwork, much of which was taken from Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Informed on 22 April 1945 that Hitler intended to commit suicide, Göring sent a telegram to Hitler requesting permission to assume control of the Reich. Considering it an act of treason, Hitler removed Göring from all his positions, expelled him from the party, and ordered his arrest.

After the war, Göring was convicted of conspiracy, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg trials. He was sentenced to death by hanging, but committed suicide by ingesting cyanide the night before the sentence was to be carried out.” –from Link: “Hermann Göring,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_G%C3%B6ring … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported License [Bolding is mine. –Alice]

Dear Ones,

Here is is a thought-provoking passage on the fate of suicides and those who die suddenly by accident or murder. Clearly, this applies to euthanasia of the aged in our American rest homes … what is known as an ‘angel of death’ visit by a ‘Nurse Death’ or ‘Dr. Death’ such as the notorious Jack Kevorkian …

Link: “Jack Kerkorian” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kevorkian ..

Notions that these acts may be justified as ‘merciful’ are founded in ignorance of the true scope of life on Earth.

INTRODUCTION: ON HONORING THE WISHES OF THE TERMINALLY ILL

The impetus for this story was an astral story that was circulating through the noosphere while I was living in Colorado in 2015. Whether this story had to do with Colorado, or with some other part of the United States, or whether it might have had to do with movies or television shows that were being viewed at that time, I do not know.

The astral story had to do with a middle-aged woman and a male accomplice who were euthanizing elderly men with memory problems in a rest home, or maybe in various rest homes. In this hypothetical story, family members of these elderly men were presented with a cost analysis comparing the cost of caring for the men in the rest home for a few more years, compared to the cost of euthanasia.

As the astral story went, the first 12 old men were euthanized at a cost of $20,000 each, paid to the male accomplice and accomplished by the middle-aged woman, whose profession had to do with health care, or was tangential to health care.

The following year, which would have been 2016, according to the astral story, there was less demand for euthanasia in the geographic area where they worked, so the price was lowered to $12,000 per act of euthanasia, and 8 more elderly men were euthanized.

After that, there was no more demand for euthanasia of elderly men in that geographic locale … My hypothesis about this is that there was no more ‘product’ … no more elderly men with memory problems in the area; or maybe that the families of the remaining elderly men cared too much for them to agree to euthanasia.

My personal stance towards euthanasia is that it ought not be done, under any circumstances. My feeling is that everyone has an optimal ‘death date’ … or maybe several optimal ‘death dates’ prearranged through agreement of their Soul and their guardian angels, in alignment with God’s will.

I feel it would be best to leave that date and time to God, and not intervene, thinking that our own will is more important than that of God. I feel that, when families agree to euthanasia, this is more often for their own comfort and relief, than on behalf of the family member who is being euthanized.

As my mother said to me in my youth, young people sometimes say that they would like to put an end to their lives if they become very old … but, she would add, the older they get, the more fiercely they hold on to their hope of tomorrow, no matter whether it might be a year, a month, a week, or just one day. And then she would smile understandingly.

From that I gathered it is good to understand things from the point of view of the people who are going through the ordeal of dying, and do our best to help them achieve their hopes and dreams regarding their final days.

Because the astral stories I was hearing in 2015 ran counter to my own feelings on the subject of honoring the elderly, I sought spiritual counsel regarding this topic of euthanasia while I was visiting in Colorado.

The  person I spoke with said that euthanasia of the elderly is seldom legally prosecuted. His tone of voice made me feel that he felt this was morally wrong, and I feel it to be wrong as well. I hope that the consciousness of people, globally, will soon rise to the point of honoring the wishes of the terminally ill, insofar as they are able.

SCHOOL OF THEOSOPHY: THE AFTERLIFE FATE OF SUICIDES AND THOSE WHO ARE MURDERED

The below passages in quotes are from the School of Theosophy book “The Ocean of Theosophy” by William Judge …

Unlived Lifespan Must be Spent in Kama Loka (Purgatory)

“In the state of Kama Loka [the ‘desire world of the afterlife, known in Christianity as Purgatory –Alice] suicides and those who are suddenly shot out of life by accident or murder, legal or illegal, pass a term almost equal to the length life would have been but for the sudden termination….” —from Citation: “The Ocean of Theosophy,” by William Quan Judge. (2017). Urbana, Illinois: Project Gutenberg. Retrieved 3 May 2017, from http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54268 … Search: Chapter XII, “Kama Loka” ..

For more on Kama loka, see …

Link: “Kama loka: The Purgatory World of the Afterlife,” by Alice B. Clagett, extracted on 25 February 2020 from a blog published on 3 May 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-gCP ..

Suicides, Accident Victims, and Murdered People Are Not Really Dead

“These are not really dead. To bring on a normal death, a factor not recognized by medical science must be present. That is, the principles of the being as described in other chapters have their own term of cohesion, at the natural end of which they separate from each other under their own laws.

“This involves the great subject of the cohesive forces of the human subject, requiring a book in itself. I must be content therefore with the assertion that this law of cohesion obtains among the human principles. Before that natural end the principles are unable to separate. Obviously the normal destruction of the cohesive force cannot be brought about by mechanical processes except in respect to the physical body.

“Hence a suicide, or person killed by accident or murdered by man or by order of human law, has not come to the natural termination of the cohesion among the other constituents, and is hurled into the kama loka state only partly dead. There the remaining principles have to wait until the actual natural life term is reached, whether it be one month or sixty years.” —from Citation: “The Ocean of Theosophy,” by William Quan Judge. (2017). Urbana, Illinois: Project Gutenberg. Retrieved 3 May 2017, from http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54268 … Search: Chapter XII, “Kama Loka” … [Paragraphing and bolding are mine. –Alice]

THE AFTERLIFE SUFFERING OF THE SENIOR CITIZEN WHO IS EUTHANIZED

Thus a senior citizen consenting to euthanasia, or one upon whom euthanasia is forced by those around him, is subject to the fires of kama loka, or Purgatory, for a time at least equal to the remaining lifespan of which he was deprived by the act of murder by the ‘Doctor of Death’ or ‘Nurse of Death’.

Ferocity of Our Suffering in Kama Loka

The suffering we experience in kama loka is far more fierce than that which we experience on the earthly plane, as the mental powers which help us mitigate earthly emotions, are in a state of paralysis or stasis in kama loka. What is felt in the early afterlife is the full emotional force of the earthly desires with which we had been dealing in physical form before death. In other words, kama loka is but a milder form of the hellworld afterlife experience.

Euthanasia Dooms Our Loved Ones to Suffering in Purgatory

It is this prolonged Purgatory experience to which we doom our loved ones through the misconceived act of euthanasia.

THE KARMIC DEBT OF THE MURDERER OF A SENIOR CITIZEN AND OF THE ASSASSIN HE HIRES

What karma devolves upon those who perform the act of human euthanasia, and what karma devolves upon those who pay for their services? On the astral plane, I have heard the cry ‘I am innocent!’ in both ways …

  • that the hand of the Angel of Death is absolved by the coin conveyed, and
  • that the one who pays for the job is not legally (nor morally) liable for the act.

My own feeling is that the hand of death and the coin of death share the karmic debt, and that this debt will, as inevitably as night follows day, be paid for through suffering in kama loka after the murderer and his paid assassin pass on.

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

Philosophical Question 4: Career in White-Collar Crime? . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 April 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is philosophical question 4: Is it all right to chant the names of God, or use Eastern yogic techniques, or use Western mind control techniques to pursue white-collar crime?

A Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Here is another knotty philosophical question: Suppose we have a yen to get ahead in the world, and we feel that white-collar crime …  like embezzlement and fraud and hacking on the internet and stealing credit cards, those kinds of things … suppose we consider that they are not so terribly awful; and that we’d like to undertake a profession in the world such as that.

  • And then we turn to the Kabbalah, or the many names of God there, and we begin to chant in order to achieve that which we want to manifest in the world in that way.

Is this right or wrong? Is it right or wrong to invoke the name of God for the sake of white-collar crime?

Or any of the other methods, for example:

  • Using the yogic techniques from India, in order to do that.
  • Using the mind control techniques developed in the West. Is that ok?

Is it all right to do those things, or is it not? What is the consequence to our Soul evolution or devolution? That is the bottom line. You may have your opinions, and I may have mine. Therefore, I put that out to you to think about, and to consider.

May God’s love and light and joy shine down upon all of you, and uplift you to the very highest spiritual realms; the greatest truth; the finest, deepest, most unconditional love.

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

Philosophical Question 3: Does Attaining Neutral Mind Absolve Immoral Acts? . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 23 April 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is the third philosophical question:  If a person rises in Awareness to the state of being beyond right and wrong, above right and wrong, does that, then, make it all right for the person to slip up from time to time … say, to murder, or to perform cannibalistic acts, or to rape? And correlative to that, how does a habit of making these slipups affect our Soul evolution?

There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

On this beautiful, sunlit day. Here is another philosophical question for you: If a person rises, in Awareness, to the state of being beyond right and wrong, above right and wrong, does that, then, make it all right for the person to slip up from time to time … say, to murder, or to perform cannibalistic acts, or to rape?

“Mission to Earth: A Lightworkers Guide to Self Mastery,” by Anna Merkaba, is a very interesting book, that raises some thought-provoking … and to me, somewhat disturbing … questions …

Citation: “Mission to Earth: A Lightworkers Guide to Self Mastery,” Anna Merkaba, ~2014, 142 pp

In the book, Anna Merkaba talks a little about this question …. On page 32, first two paragraphs [to paraphrase] she explains how everything there is, including us human beings, is both good and bad. She speaks of a Reptilian race that inhabited Earth. There is a reference to how humans eat animals, and how this is similar to what Reptilians do to humans.

She also mentions how we humans, of our own free will, allow Reptilians to enslave us by destroying our Souls or psyches …

Link: “Are ‘Reptilians’ Really Antisocial Personalities?” by Alice B. Clagett, extracted and published separately on 25 February 2020 from a blog published on 23 April 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-gCc ..

The following paragraph, paragraph 3, explains how to get out of the grasp of a Reptilian through feeling Love. And then on page 33, there’s an explanation of how Reptilians as well as humans have Souls …

I feel these passages from Anna Merkaba’s book offer a unique perspective on the quandary of right and wrong, good and bad, and the question of rising above it all. This is very different from my own perspective, but the notion behind “Philosophical Question 3” is for everyone to discover their own truth about these knotty issues. Along those lines, here are some questions from the video:

If a person is in a state, most of the time, of neutral mind, beyond right and wrong, how does that connect to the person’s actions in the world? Here is another way of looking at it …

  • If we are in the eternal flow of the Now, and we commit a heinous crime, an atrocity in the eyes of the world, and then we find ourselves in the next moment of the flow of the eternal Now, does that mean that the atrocity that we committed doesn’t count, or that it never happened?
  • Does it mean, for instance, that we can absolve ourselves of that, and start fresh, in a new moment?

This is a philosophical question that is well worth pondering. Here is another question …

  • Does it make a difference … if we find ourselves in this situation of being far above notions of right and wrong, and we find that we have committed a terrible atrocity, and that we continue to commit these atrocities habitually … Does it make a difference if it is habitual, or if it only happened once?
  • If it makes a difference, then what kind of a difference does it make? For instance, how does it influence the evolution or devolution of our Soul?

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

Dear Ones,

This is the first in a series of videos posing philosophical questions for your consideration. This video is about the samskara of murder. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Introduction to Philosophical Questions Series

I am reminded of Christianity, when it first began. For the first four hundred years there were all kinds of debates about heresy and truth. True spirituality, true doctrine, and so forth. Still, these debates are ongoing today, but on a ramped-down level.

I felt those debates, that took place long centuries ago, were very interesting, and very applicable today. So I thought I would have a series of short videos, putting forth to you various knotty questions from a philosophical point of view, and asking you what you think about them.

In your own world, in your own understanding of reality, in your own weltanschauung, is this heresy, or is this your sacred doctrine? Is this falsehood, or is this truth? And here is the very first …

Astral Story about a Person Who Loved to Murder

On the astral plane, one time I heard of someone who loved the thought of murdering people. In his youth, maybe that is what happened … I do not know. But that is a very dangerous occupation. And he had developed his psychic abilities, his astral travelling abilities and so forth, so that he was able to vicariously satisfy that urge by swooping down in astral form and observing murders taking place. And that was, according to the astral story, his substitute way, as he got older, of seeing people violently pass on.

As this person approached his very senior years, he began to think: What can I do to make up for this? Because this enjoyment of watching a murder take place is not a good thing. This is considered bad by society. And he had the notion that he would start meditating, and he would form a group where people meditate.

On Meditation Groups Formed for Worldly Reasons

There are lots of meditation groups in the world … all kinds of meditation groups. There are a lot of groups in India that meditate for psychic abilities so as to get things for their own personal gain … such as wealth, or sex with lots of people, or power in the world, or whatever.

On the Foolhardiness of Worshiping Satan. They even worship Satan sometimes for that very reason. They do not know much about Satan. They figure he is going to help them out, and give them a leg up in the world, with power. But there was never a mentor more self-centered than Satan. He does not have any feelings of kindness, or helpfulness about him. What you need to do, if you want a leg up in the world, is to look for a mentor with those qualities: kindness, and helpfulness.

So there are people in meditation groups all over the world who are meditating on the wrong stuff. Bad stuff, like this gentleman in this astral story: He was meditating on murder. He loved murder, and that is what he meditated on.

How a Spiritual Teacher’s Samskaras Ripple Through His Group

To continue: He thought he would form a group where people could make up for the fact that he loved murder. And so, here is how this incredible story goes: Every time his group met to meditate, what would happen is, in the middle of the night, when everybody was sound asleep … when their unconscious minds and their subconscious minds came to the fore … he would journey out of body, in astral form, to a place where a murder was taking place.

Then he would come back in body, and the next day there would be a meditation that included that samskara of murder. What resulted was, that everyone in his group began to be tempted to murder.

This is not an unusual thing. In general, in the third and fourth dimensions, the spiritual teacher has some burnt seeds of past actions, or samskaras in him, that will ripple out through the group, just as the group’s samskaras ripple into the teacher.

Posing the Question: Does the Act of Meditation Pay for a Life of Crime?

For this person, who really enjoyed the act of murder, and who wanted to make up for that by having a meditation group; for those other people, who want to make up for their desire for physical wealth by forming a meditation group, or who believe they are uplifting their desire for sex with everyone in their group by meditating together, I am asking this question …

Does the act of meditation uplift that group? Does it pay for the acting out of crimes? What do you think? Is it so, or not so? Does it, for instance, make it even?

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

On a Maneuver to Turn Lightworkers Against Each Other . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 20 April 2017

Dear Ones,

I am sure you have noticed there is a maneuver afoot to turn Lightworkers against each other through lawsuits and ill feelings. This is being instigated by …

  • Controllers (who do not understand the astrogeophysical nature of the Ascension process),
  • vested interests (which hope to maintain the status quo),
  • and on a subconscious level, by certain of our old friends and those family members who are going through the early Ascension stage characterized by anxious moments. It’s this anxiety, and a misunderstanding of the synchronous nature of reality, that leads them to subconscious prompts that we not do those things pertinent to our own awakening …

Let us stand with God, and not turn against anyone else in the world today. Let each of us have a good word for our fellow Lightworkers, who are really enjoying the Ascension process, as well as a kind and loving thought for everyone who prefers things just as they are.

Each can have his or her wish …

  • Those that enjoy Ascension can pick a speedy Ascension timeline.
  • And those that prefer the status quo can pick a timeline that does not express itself as change.
  • The one does not negate the other: These are two separate timelines, out of our individual, limitless timeline choices.

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

Link: “For the Children,” a Zen poem by Gary Snyder … http://moralground.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/GarySnyder.pdf ..

Dear Ones,

END TIMES PROPHECIES

It was prophesied by others regarding the End Times … the time we Ascensioneers call the Time of New Beginning … that there might be roving bands of men preying upon women and children (something like some of the scenes in the upsetting movie “A Boy and His Dog” (1) that was filmed many years ago. This is just a heads up regarding that, for the sake of community health and safety.

ASTRAL ROVING BANDS OF MEN

In the main, this theme has been playing out merely on the astral plane, as the feral drives and the lower chakras clear and are purified by the Incoming Light. While a little unsettling, these sorts of astral stories, about roving gangs of men psychically raping women, are not life threatening.

ACTING OUT OF PREDATION ON WOMEN BY MEN IN TEAMS OF TWO

However, there are some few men, especially in large cities such as Los Angeles, who, because of the patriarchal energetic imbalance of the Atlantean Age, have the energy threads of misogyny, or hatred of women, as a weightier portion of their Soul wounding. Amongst these men, some few are acting out the following scenario:

They form a group, which may be found online, but whose true purpose will be gilded over with noble thought forms. The members of the group are men who have been convicted of sexually molesting a child, or perhaps of raping a woman.

These men hunt down women in packs of two: One man beds a woman. The other creeps in while she sleeps and murders her with a drug overdose. This kind of killing is commonplace today in the large cities, and is difficult to pin down because of the heavy burden of drug use under which the cities labor. In a law enforcement report, such a murder is often misplaced as a drug OD by the murdered woman.

A fake marriage certificate has been forged before the murder, and the woman’s goods are deeded to the first man, the one who bedded her, and who is, technically innocent of the act of murder, although in fact he is complicit.

This technique used to be implements through psychic heart attack before the 2012 Shift, but now that the light on Earth has shifted, psychic heart attack can no longer be employed. Those who used to murder through psychic means have turned to difficult-to-detect physical means such as drug overdose.

On the astral plane, I’ve heard of one man who has a list of over 100 women whom he intends to murder using this MO. He has gathered a group of men together, along the lines described above. He assigns these men in twos to women on the list. This group has, according to the astral stories, successfully murdered many women and garnered their property and money for various non-profit cover organizations which apportion the money to the men involved.

FAKE DRUG-DEATH M.O. BEING USED AGAINST VALIANT MEN

According to the astral stories, a less elaborate drug-death MO has been used by a member of the group to murder valiant men (was it a 17-year veteran of a fire department?) who attempted to investigate this criminal group.

CANNIBALISM OF WIFE BLAMED ON AUTO ACCIDENT

There is another ploy taking place, along the same theme, where a misogynist ‘offs’ his wife by murdering her, dismembering and partly eating her. The act of cannibalism is disguised through a faked death report citing an auto accident. No doubt, with the many auto accidents today, consumption of part of a mangled body would be easily overlooked, without the need for money to change hands.

From the astral stories, this cannibalistic acting out is relatively rare, in comparison to the drug death method described above.

ON AVOIDING END TIMES APOCALYPTIC SCENARIOS

The above are a few of the examples of the real-life workings out of apocalyptic End Time scenarios predicted by prophecies (as I recall, these were prophecies by a Zen monk?) prior to the Shift. Many other disasters have been predicted, among them earthquake and other natural disasters, economic troubles, war, population decimation, famine, and in general, the ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth predicted many times over in the Bible.

Weeping and gnashing of teeth … https://jesuswithoutbaggage.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/outer-darkness-500.jpg ..

More weeping and gnashing of teeth … https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/6da39-1.jpg ..

In fact, there are some people who are experiencing this apocalyptic scenario on the astral plane (6th and 7th levels of astral negative … the densest hellworld experiences) right now. However, it’s very easy to sidestep these experiences.

Cultivating Positive Emotions Lifts the Astral Body Out of the Hellworlds

First, we must create within our emotional bodies positive emotions such as joy, hope, faith, and charity towards other people. That is because it is our negative emotions such as fear, hatred, and anger that are causing us to have the hellworld experiences, and to act them out.

Hathors on Optimizing Timelines and Dimensions to Escape Danger

Second, if we may use the timeline and dimensional optimization technique to escape imminent danger, whether it be danger of being at the effect of violent acting out, or the acting out itself.

Here is the timeline and dimension optimization activation of light, as gifted by the Hathors. Every word is important; so the beneficial effect cannot be guaranteed if the wording is changed:

Spirit to Team!
Optimize timelines and dimensions!
For the All, through Free Will!

What happens, when we use this technique, is that our Awareness timeline and dimension undergo a shift that optimizes our chance of Soul learning. In other words, the fabric of time and space shifts. As humans, we have the ability to manipulate time and space in this way, only we have forgotten that we do.

On Remembering Our Multitemporal, Multidimensional Skills. Thus, the greatest hurdle to implementing this technique, and escaping the present Apocalyptic dangers, are to remember that we humans have these multitemporal, multidimensional abilities.

On Having Faith, and Following the Wisdom Set Down by Others. If we cannot remember, then we must have the faith to utilize the ascension techniques anyway; and not just those that I espouse, but those put forth by other Lightworkers, those described in the Bible and other holy books, the wisdom writ down by the ancients.

CONCLUSION

For those that would like more information on transcending End Times and Apocalyptic scenarios, I recommend the following …

Crime Makeovers: 1 . by Alice B. Clagett

  • FOR MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

I did a survey of the Durango, Colorado, sex offender database in 2015 (1) … Back then, there were lots of snapshots of male African Americans. As far as I know, the African-American population of Durango is nearly zero. I wondered, what gives? Could it be that there are Caucasian sex offenders masquerading as black people?

CAN CRIMINALS CHANGE THEIR RACE?

Answer is yes, it seems. Here is an article about a type of face mask that fooled law enforcement into arresting a black man for a bank heist; later they discovered the error and arrested a Caucasian suspect:

Link: “Face Mask That’s So Good Everyone Wants One,” by Guy Adams, 10 December 2010 … https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/face-mask-thats-so-good-every-crook-wants-one-2155856.html ..

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR CRIMINALS TO HACK AND CHANGE MUGSHOTS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT DATABASES?

Then just recently I checked the Durango sex offender database, and it showed almost only Latino people … and there are few Latino people in Durango proper.

Huh! Could there be a master hacker accessing the law enforcement database at night, maybe as a janitor or maintenance person? Hypothetically?

While I have no answer here, I do have a lead. I saw a photo of a person by a particular name, under the jurisdiction of the La Plata County, Colorado, Sheriff’s office … Apparently he was convicted 13 September 2004 in Alabama of sexual assault on a child.

Then I found a person by the same name, charged with sexual assault on a child, 13 September 2004 … This person looked similar to the man in the La Plata County photo, but parted his hair differently, and his face was thinner.

What gives, I wonder? Could this be evidence of hacking or tampering with the Colorado law enforcement sexual offender database? Or maybe an attempt by two crooks to confuse the public? Or maybe it is simply evidence of occasional steroid use by one person?

FAKE DATES OF BIRTH

In searching through criminal files for Colorado, I came across one man who had 4 different names,  very different hairdos, and slightly different dates of birth (DOB, as it is called). Yet he had the same sorts of criminal offenses in each of the four records.

So, I am guessing that criminals may alter their dates of birth, as well as their names and ‘dos’, so that their criminal records are less easily compiled in Law Enforcement databases?

HEIGHT ENHANCEMENT THROUGH SURGERY

During my 2015 perusal of the Durango, Colorado, sexual offender database, one thing I noticed was that there were 18 men of varying weights, but all of them were about 5′ 10″ in height, which was quite a large proportion of the total number of people listed.

And there was another, smaller cluster of men about 6′ 1″ in height, which seemed to me to be exceedingly odd.

Suppose incorrect photos were put into these files, and the rest of the statistics were not altered … Would that point to 2 perps working overtime in the Durango area, one about 5′ 10″ tall, and one about 6′ 1″ tall?

Or might it be one perp with height enhancement surgery? Looks like that is a possibility; see …

Link: “New York Man Grows Six Inches Through Surgery,” by Denise Martinez-Ramundo and Bill Ritter, 23 February 2012, in ABC News … http://abcnews.go.com/Health/york-man-grows-inches-surgery/story?id=15776730 ..

Then I wondered about variations in weight in the 2015 Durango sex offender database, maybe 40 to 85 pounds of difference. I wondered, can this by any chance be achieved with a body suit? The answer is, yes, according to Wikipedia:

“Fatsuits may also be used to impart the experience of being obese to the wearer, not just the appearance of obesity to their audience. The suit in this case is weighted, as well as padded. Where the intention is to impart the experience of being seen as fat in a community, its appearance must also be realistic and so a fatsuit rather than just a weight belt is needed. Several celebrities noted for their slimness have worn such garments and recorded their, and others’, reactions as documentary of social attitudes to weight….” –from Link: “Fatsuit,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatsuit … CC BY 3.0

CAN CRIMINALS CHANGE THEIR GENDER?

This was my next question. Yes again … Breast augmentation is one way to appear to change gender. See …

Link: “Breast Augmentation,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breast_augmentation ..

Aside from surgery, it looks like there are more conservative ways. This I found by searching Google Shopping under “Crossdress” …

LInk: “Cross-dress for Sale” search at Google … https://www.google.com/search?q=cross+dress+for+sale&tbm=shop&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiO2I6w643TAhWHjlQKHfY2ApYQ_AUIBigB&biw=1280&bih=633&dpr=1#tbm=shop&q=crossdress&* ..

And there are other forms of identity-changing surgery:

CAN FINGERPRINTS BE ALTERED?

Criminals sometimes alter their fingerprints …

Link: “Forensic Spotlight: Altered Fingerprints: A Challenge to Law Enforcement Identification Efforts,” by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, Latent and Forensic Support Unit, 5 May 2015 … https://leb.fbi.gov/spotlights/forensic-spotlight-altered-fingerprints-a-challenge-to-law-enforcement-identification-efforts ..

HEIGHT-ENHANCING SURGERY TO PREVENT LAW ENFORCEMENT FROM AUTOMATICALLY MATCHING UP CRIMINAL RECORDS

Height can be changed through surgery; it looks like as many as 6 inches can be gained through surgery. Maybe this kind of operation would prevent computer matching of criminal records in a law enforcement database. See:

Link: “New York Man Grows 6 Inches Through Surgery,” by ABC News … http://abcnews.go.com/Health/york-man-grows-inches-surgery/story?id=15776730 ..

Link: “Disadvantages & Risks of Leg Lengthening Surgery to Increase Height || Height Growth Tips,” by Pastimers – World’s Best & Worst, 6 April 2016 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTKrJA2QssE ..

FACE TRANSPLANTS AND IMPLANTS FOR IDENTITY CHANGE

I can think of two kinds of face surgery to prevent detection of one’s criminal history. See …

Link: “Changing identity – face transplant ethics,” by Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust … https://www.royalfree.nhs.uk/services/services-a-z/plastic-surgery/facial-reconstruction-and-face-transplants/changing-identity-face-transplant-ethics/ ..

Mass Media Part 1: Social Responsibility . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 28 March 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

The topics of the video are mass media, social responsibility, and lawlessness and the law.  A Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I would like to talk for a minute about mass media as it is today, and social responsibility. I would like to address the issue of lawlessness and the law, and the persuasive power of mass media.

Suppose it were true that there were people of consequentialist leanings in the world today who believed that they were above the law, and that they had the right to do things to people … things those people experienced as painful … “for their own good” … by way of punishment, to the end of creating an Utopian future for the world.

And that it did not matter to these consequentialists whether or not they broke the law when they did this; they were ‘above the law’. The law had no hold on them, as far as their imaginations of how life on Earth should go proceeded to manifestation in the real world.

And suppose they were to try various experiments on segments of the human population with intentions of improving things, and that these experiments involved great Soul wounding for the people on whom they experimented … Just a supposition.

Now if such a thing were to happen, and if they had at their disposal some form of admission to the mass media, would it not occur to them to try to change the opinions of the world regarding laws that they had broken, so that, should these experiments come to light, they would not be punished for them?

If we thought that might be the case, then could we not look at the offerings of mass media, and determine what might have happened, along the lines of social experiments unsanctioned by the law, in the recent past?

Let’s say that these experiments have not been performed, but might be performed in future.

  • Might we then look at the themes of the mass media today, and determine, on our own, whether we feel that these themes are socially responsible or not, so that we could advocate for changes in the law, perhaps more strictly in adherence with the rights of human beings?
  • Perhaps from a spiritually informed perspective of Soul evolution, we could take a look at the laws of today, and work towards change, to decrease Soul ignorance and suffering in the world. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful possibility?

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Here is another example of first- and second-tier karma …

An Instance of Second-Tier Pass-Down to Do with a Lecture

Let’s say there is a person who is very spiritually advanced, and gives a lecture on how you can depose a government. And they give this lecture to a small group of people.

The person that gives the lecture, technically, has not done anything wrong … They are just presenting an academic argument, right? But the second tier of people, if they are speaking in the economic interests of people who have less than everyone else, may act out a scenario that results in great loss of life and limb, and great suffering, and greatly increased Soul wounding for everyone involved.

So technically, the first person has no legal hold upon them, but the people that they speak to, and pass on their malware and malspeak to … which in this case has to do with consequentialism and that great heresy of Auschwitz … those people take on all the karma that is legally sanctionable and actionable.

And this is how the duality play is. Those with great spiritual insight tend to influence the minds of others so that they then carry out karmically things that are legally binding on them, and all the people that they associate with.

So therefore, it is impingent upon those who are spiritual leaders to do their clearing first. To take care of their clearing, so that the tiny specks and distortions in density of their bodies of light are completely cleared and cease to influence the masses of people to acting out during this transition to New Life on New Earth.

Karmic Restitution and Return to the Path of Dharma

We Ascensioneers are far from perfect, although we do our best to be Lightbearers, pathfinders, and wayshowers for humankind. Along with everyone else on Earth, we are clearing. The incomplete state of our clearing makes it very important for us to examine our actions daily, and determine if some small act may be needed to set ourselves back from an instance of karmic debt, on to the path of dharma, the path of righteousness.

In this hypothetical case of a lecture with potentially unfortunate consequences, one might introspect at the end of the day, and determine that such an act would be needed. Then one might determine the course of action. 

Personal Alchemy and Co-Creation of New Life on New Earth. One such act of karmic restitution might be simply to sit in meditation, with a peaceful heart, and offer that emotion of peacefulness to the astral airs. Much can be said in favor of such a simple act of transforming the astral airs from restlessness and discontentedness to feelings of peace, harmony, and world unity. This is the process termed by Peggy Black, that great Ascension Soul, as personal alchemy and co-creation of New Life on New Earth.

On Using the Mass Media for Humanitarian Outreach. Another simple act might be to provide … to immediately provide, through the local newspaper, for instance … a balm to the hearts of those who have been unintentionally incited to restlessness. For instance, if their discontent stems from inability to purchase a home, and loss of hope that they may ever own land in the current overpriced real estate market,

  • For instance, the daily news might carry an announcement about government programs such as HUD and Section 8 housing that allow people with meager means to own homes.
  • The article might also describe ‘lease to own’ agreements with private parties that rent homes, and the possibility of buying homes from private parties by just assuming a mortgage with no down payment. 
  • The article might further mention affordable local housing markets, as, for example, are referenced in the following … Link: “The 10 Most Affordable Housing Markets in California,” by Andrew Khouri, Los Angeles Times, 25 July 2013 … http://articles.latimes.com/2013/jul/25/business/la-fi-mo-affordable-southland-zip-20130725 … According to Mr. Khouri, in 2013, affordable homes were available in Barstow, Joshua Tree, Blythe, Twentynine Palms, Sugarloaf, Yucca Valley, San Bernardino, and Hemet. At that time these markets were valued from a low-end median of $60,000 in Barstow to $115,000 in San Bernardino, at the high end.
  • There are also affordable places to retire in California, such as Redding, Eureka, Rio Vista, Palm Springs, Oceanside, Chico, Riverside, and Grass Valley. The article Link: “Affordable Places to Retire in California” by Laurie Jo Miller Farr … http://seniors.lovetoknow.com/Affordable_Places_to_Retire_in_California … discusses this.

Attainable Home Ownership and Homesteading in the United States. People are feeling unhappy with home ownership in my own city of Los Angeles right now:
