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

Community Alert: Could Wearing Face Masks Be Partly to Blame for the Rioting and Looting? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 June 2020

Dear Ones,

Just now I was reading the Mayo Clinic explanation about the efficacy of wearing face masks in public, and I have a few notions about it. I read between the lines that the cloth masks do not prevent us from breathing germs when we inhale in public, I guess because the cloth fabric is porous.

Nobody has mentioned the psychological effect of wearing masks. People get cues about the good intentions of other people by observing their facial expressions, I feel. When I go to the store and see masked people all around I get an unfriendly feeling because of the masks.

It feels to me like health officials mandate face masks as a way of saying the virus is ‘under control’. The masks are like the ‘magic whistle’ to allay our health concerns. But instead of helping, the face mask regulation is causing me to feel estranged from my fellow shoppers and neighbors in the community.

It could be that the ‘masked marauder’ look is causing people to feel fearful, and that the rioting and looting are a reaction to that fear … As they say, some may choose ‘fight’ rather than ‘flight’ in a scary situation. Getting down to the line, I feel it could be that the mandate about face masks is partly to blame for the rioting and looting in LA.

How do you feel about it? Are the pros of wearing face masks in public when we are not ill greater than the cons?

Here is the Mayo Clinic face mask page where I ‘read between the lines’ about the effectiveness of various sorts of masks …

Link: “COVID-19: How Much Protection Do Face Masks Offer?” by Mayo Clinic Staff …  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-mask/art-20485449 ..

As I read the Mayo Clinic article, the types of masks that are thought to offer protection from droplet aspiration are surgical and N95 masks. While I am not a medical doctor, my profession at UCLA (from which I am retired) was medical editor for some years, which accounts for my being able to read what is left unsaid in the Mayo publication.

What they seem not to be saying is that the cloth masks are effective. Instead, they say that the surgical and N95 masks are effective. I feel this to be misleading, as it causes intelligent people to think one way, when in fact things are another way.

In addition there is the issue of health care officials finding out that the pandemic had spread here in the United States while people were asymptomatic. What the masks do is stop the spread of infectious particles or droplets in the air. But if infectious people were asymptomatic, that would mean they were not coughing or sneezing. In that case they were not spreading infectious particles or droplets in the air, so how might wearing masks have prevented this early asymptomatic viral spreading?

In fact, what was the manner of infection? Was it in the breathed out air, or perhaps through touch?

Then there is the issue of the face masks with the valves that open when the person wearing them breathes out. Those types of face masks would not prevent an infected person wearing the mask from infecting nearby people.

I am left with the thought that surgical face masks might be very helpful when infected people are coughing or sneezing, as these types of face masks prevent spread of infectious particles or droplets in the air. But according to the Mayo Clinic report, not enough of these are being produced to pass out to the general population; instead they are being reserved for health care workers and essential personnel.

Mayo Clinic offers that the general public may wear cloth masks; and the Mayor of Los Angeles then mandated that we Angelenos must do so. That is considerable expense and discomfort to us, which might yet be a sensible consideration if there were a peer-reviewed article showing that fabric masks are helpful in preventing the spread of the virus. Until we have such research, I feel the Mayor of Los Angeles ought to revoke his mandate that we must always wear cloth masks in public.

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

Western States Pact and Possible Decentralization of the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 June 2020

  • FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT
  • POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME
    • Decentralization Stressors
      • COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues
      • The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops
  • COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

Dear Ones,

FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT

As you may know, a Western States Pact has been formed in response to the COVID-19 issue. To date, the states involved are Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, and Nevada …

Link: “Colorado & Nevada Join California, Oregon & Washington in Western States Pact,” 27 April 2020 … https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/04/27/colorado-nevada-join-california-oregon-washington-in-western-states-pact/ ..

This is a power block or united front asking for financial help from the federal government in response to the impact of COVID-19 on their states’ economies.

POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME

While this power block has a focused purpose, it does present a small step towards consolidating a Western economic region, in a way that is reminiscent of this possible timeline for relative decentralization of the United States into economic regions, with less control by a federal government as a possibility in years to come …

Link: “What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized?,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 6 December 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-fnm ..

Decentralization Stressors

COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues. Among the stressors, in the current scenario, would be COVID-19 affecting the current economy of the large United States cities; AIDS (which prevents having viable offspring) affecting the Eastern Seaboard economic region (which is hard hit by AIDS) first, and other regions later; and in the short term, inability of the federal government to provide financial aid because of decreased tax payments next year because of unemployment caused by lockdowns this year.

The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops. In addition, here in Los Angeles the price of water has made it untenable to raise crops; water prices may rise elsewhere in the United States as well. For those in the cities, I suggest a power block lobbying for reasonably priced water. For those who can move away from the cities, I suggest moving to regions of plentiful rainfall, so that a sustainable or survival-oriented lifestyle can be maintained if necessary.

COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

My feeling is that riots and curfews are happening in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere because people who have no savings have been prevented from making a living by lockdowns in the urban areas of the United States. My hope is that our mayors and governors will see the wisdom of balancing relatively few lives lost through COVID-19 against social unrest caused by inability to get work.

Italy, for instance, was very hard hit by the epidemic, yet their people are going back to work and reopening churches. In addition, Dallas, Texas is doing so. From available news, the resurgence of COVID-19 in Wuhan, which reopened for business a while ago, has been far less in numbers than the good caused by the ability of the people to feed and clothe themselves.

In other words, I feel that, in terms of lockdown or return to normalcy, we must weigh the common good against our fears regarding possible, but as yet unproven, negative outcomes. For all we know, the worst is over, and better days lie just beyond the horizon, nearly within our ken.

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

Danger for Hikers and Campers in Ventura County? . by Alice B. Clagett

Excerpted on 28 May 2020 from a blog published on 29 September 2019

  • DANGER FOR HIKERS AND CAMPERS IN RURAL VENTURA COUNTY AND LOS ANGELES COUNTY?
  • NEED FOR INTER-COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT LIAISONS AMONGST COUNTIES ADJACENT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

Dear Ones,

DANGER FOR HIKERS AND CAMPERS IN RURAL VENTURA COUNTY AND LOS ANGELES COUNTY?

In the last few years, I have clairly listened to several astral stories while exploring the byroads and hiking trails of Ventura County north of Ojai and of Los Angeles County north of Santa Clarita. What intuition very strongly tells me is that those of us who hike and camp in rural areas of Ventura County and Los Angeles Cunty are in danger of thefts from our parked vehicles (including theft of electronics, personal items, and tires); theft of the vehicles themselves; burglary of equipment from our tents; and apparently possible violent loss of our lives so that thieves may market our stolen goods and cars without being caught out.

I feel what intuition tells me is greatly increased danger in this regard may have to do with higher water costs for Ventura County and Los Angeles County rural residents, the need for food and firewood for their homes, and the need for feed and water for their livestock. It seems to me reasonable, if these crimes are occurring, to try to find out if local Ventura County and Los Angeles County residents have a hand in it.

NEED FOR INTER-COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT LIAISONS AMONGST COUNTIES ADJACENT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

It is possible that, because of increasing economic stresses in California, residents of small towns and of rural areas … including their law enforcement agencies … may be beginning to band together to protect themselves from outsiders, and to profit by occasional raids on tourists and visitors such as I describe above.

I ask that law enforcement for counties adjacent to the City of Los Angeles reach out, each to the other, so as to form as close bonds of cooperation and information exchange as possible. In that way, we can keep Southern California strong and safe for everyone.

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

The above concerns are derived from intuition and clair perception; they cannot be said to be factual in any regard unless facts are found that support the ‘astral intel’.

Homeland Security Violent Extremism Grant to Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 27 February 2020

Dear Ones,

If memory serves, Homeland Security offered a multiyear grant to the City of Los Angeles on the topic “Countering Violent Extremism.” Here is the grant award …

Link: “Countering Violent Extremism Grant Applications (Awarded),” EMW-2016-APP-00294 … https://archive.org/stream/DHS-CVE-grants/EMW-2016-CA-APP-00294%20Full%20Application_djvu.txt ..

I thought it might have run for about 10 years; possibly it is still running, but maybe not.

The thing I found interesting about it was that it looked like Gale Feldman, M.P.H., who was my nextdoor neighbor when I lived in Santa Monica, California, may have been on the steering committee. Here is her Linked-in information …

Link: Gale Feldman, M.P.H. … https://www.linkedin.com/in/gale-feldman-m-p-h-75b2234 ..

I recall some years ago Gale invited me to one of the talks given in downtown Los Angeles by Fr. Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries, who is on the Board of Directors for the grant. As I recall, he had plenty of hands to shake that day; I feel certain he would not remember me, although I might have signed the guestbook.

Then later Gale sent me an inspiring speech she had made to former gang members who had done their time and were about to rejoin the mainstream of community life. Pretty impressive work, I felt, as they say public speaking is most folks’ number one fear.

Dear Ones,

Here are some odd clouds and another photo I took on my way home from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, California, where there was an exhibit on Egypt’s Lost Cities and a 3D presentation of a talk by deceased Past President Reagan …

As far as cloud readings and the gift of prophecy go, it looks like either the American Eagle is having a wonderful time in the San Fernando Valley, or else there is a giant Sky Dragon out there, blessing us for the New Year.

The water hydrant drawing represents my kerflummoxment at the cloud reading …

What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 6 December 2019
Prior title: What If the United States Became Less Federal and More Regional in Government? 

Dear Ones,

ECONOMIC STRESSORS THAT MAY LEAD TO DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT          top

I have some thoughts on the state of the nation. Intuitively, I sense economic stressors that may gradually lead to our Federal government taking a lesser role in the governance of the United States, compared to regional alliances of states. I see the Federal government continuing to provide military defense, social security payments, and leadership in foreign affairs. I also see states taking more initiative in economics for their regions.

As to trade, I see future reliance on established railroad routes and water routes such as the Mississippi river. I anticipate that, should there be a gradual lessening of Federal power, then there might be more trade within an economic region, and less trade globally and nationally.

As to finance, I see potential reliance on barter, with care no to place our financial assets in overseas locations. Local-employment based credit unions may come into favor as regional savings repositories.

There may be more reliance on those economic sectors that hold strong during recessions … such as locally grown food, locally obtainable building materials, and water supplies not piped in over long distances.

As to economic stressors, I suggest the economic impact of the HIV pandemic, stress of regional aridity due to long-distance water transport costs,

A socially disruptive stressor is handheld psychosis, which may lead to chaotic events such as mass murders and actions by public utilities and military regarding perceived dangers that do not truly exist. This might precipitate social unrest in regions of the United States pinpointed by the Jade Helm exercises.

CAVEATS REGARDING POSSIBLE LOCI OF SOCIAL UNREST          top

In United States cities, the high cost of housing and the increasing phenomenon of homelessness may lead to social unrest and attempted land grabs through anarchist behavior; this is something for which, I feel, every large city mayor and every state government ought to have on hand emergency action plans. For states in arid regions, emergency anti-anarchist plans ought, I feel, to highlight security of water transport systems. Electrical grids, I feel, might also be an anarchist target.

We people in large United States cities can be of big help in creating peaceful environments for our children by offering our law enforcement departments volunteer help through neighborhood watch programs.

ON MAINTAINING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IN THE FACE OF CHANGE          top

It seems unlikely to me that anything would happen in a moment; rather I feel that the United States might very slowly tend towards a model of government more akin to the state by state model of our early years as a nation. We may find, in future, that traveling from one state to the next is a refreshingly new experience. Not everyone may be watching the same thing on television every night anymore; there may be less airline flights from here to there; and so the natural flavor and local color of each region of the United States may become more striking to the casual tourist.

In addition, it may be that some regions of the United States may be more perilous for tourist travel, as was the case for travelers in the early years of our nation.

I realize the prospect of change can be unsettling. It is good to keep in mind that changes such as those spoken of above … if, indeed, change there be … would in all likelihood take place by slow stages, over the course of the next century or two. Thus I feel certain there would be plenty of time to make our plans and find our footing in the new.

POSSIBLE FUTURE UNITED STATES ECONOMIC REGIONS AND TRADE REGIONS          top

Below are some maps I have adapted to show possible United States economic regions and trade regions of centuries to come. I would be interested on your comments regarding this intriguing topic of the eventual possibility that the United States government might become less centralized, and more imbued with local flavor and with the strong spirit of our local communities.

  • 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,

INTRODUCTION

Here is a spooky astral tale for you, that I clairly heard while exploring the Rose Valley Area of Ventura County near Ojai, California. The tale is entirely fictional, and all the characters are fictional as well.

This tale could have been sparked by a ranger warning sign I saw at the entrance of the dirt road to Piedra Blanca Trailhead (Rose Valley Area) …

Clagett, 28 August 2019, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: The warning sign says: Theft Warning, Rose Valley Hikers: Did you leave these in your car? Cell phone, computer, money, valuables, purse, wallet. They won’t be there when you get back. Ventura County Sheriff

The location of the fictional tale was Middle Lion Campground, Los Padres National Forest, and Rose Canyon Road.

Piedra Blanca Trailhead and Middle Lion Campground are at the far end of Rose Canyon Road (NF-6N31) in Ventura County, California, quite near the Sespe Wilderness …

Danger for Hikers and Campers in Rural Ventura County and Los Angeles County?

In the last few years, I have clairly listened to several astral stories while exploring the byroads and hiking trails of Ventura County north of Ojai and of Los Angeles County north of Santa Clarita. What intuition very strongly tells me is that those of us who hike and camp in rural areas of Ventura County and Los Angeles Cunty are in danger of thefts from our parked vehicles (including theft of electronics, personal items, and tires); theft of the vehicles themselves; burglary of equipment from our tents; and apparently possible violent loss of our lives so that thieves may market our stolen goods and cars without being caught out.

I feel what intuition tells me is greatly increased danger in this regard may have to do with higher water costs for Ventura County and Los Angeles County rural residents, the need for food and firewood for their homes, and the need for feed and water for their livestock. It seems to me reasonable, if these crimes are occurring, to try to find out if local Ventura County and Los Angeles County residents have a hand in it.

Need for Inter-County Law Enforcement Liaisons Amongst Counties Adjacent to the City of Los Angeles

It is possible that, because of increasing economic stresses in California, residents of small towns and of rural areas … including their law enforcement agencies … may be beginning to band together to protect themselves from outsiders, and to profit by occasional raids on tourists and visitors such as I describe above.

I ask that law enforcement for counties adjacent to the City of Los Angeles reach out, each to the other, so as to form as close bonds of cooperation and information exchange as possible. In that way, we can keep Southern California strong and safe for everyone.

The above concerns are derived from intuition and clair perception; they cannot be said to be factual in any regard unless facts are found that support the ‘astral intel’.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Do I have a spooky story for you!

I just went down a long grade on a poorly paved hill with a lot of issues for a Honda to negotiate … a mile or so down … and at the bottom of the mountain was a rough campground. It was a dead end next to a stand of trees and a tiny, very shallow brook. Here is the topo map …

Link: “Middle Lion Campground Topo Map in Ventura County, CA,” by Topozone … https://www.topozone.com/california/ventura-ca/locale/middle-lion-campground/ ..

There were no people there. I got a spooky feeling immediately. I hardly wanted to get out of the car, even so much as to look at the brook. I did get out, but first I positioned my car so that it was heading back in the direction up the hill, next to the road … such as it was … that went up the hill.

As I got out of my car, lo and behold, there drove down to the turnaround that I was facing a man who looked like Clint Eastwood; without a mustache, without a hat, but definitely that piercing-eyed, Clint Eastwood, spare look.

Next to him in the car was a lady who was looking in the other direction, as if she were emotionally distant. She was about his age, maybe his wife or girlfriend, I guess. She was very pretty, and muscular in the way that people who live outdoors on ranches are.

So I thought, gosh, maybe these two are ranchers or farmers; something like that. But I had a presentiment; I thought: Maybe I had better skedaddle back up the hill right away. So the minute I saw them I got in the car. Just as they were stopping in the roundabout, I was heading back up the hill, such as it was … the ill-paved hill … as fast as I could, considering my Honda.

While I was going up the hill I was talking to them on the psychic plane.

The man said: I guess she knows what happened here last night.

I thought: What is that about … that big, black trash bag propped up against the post next to the roundabout? Are there bodies in the bag? What’s up? My emotions were running wild; I could not figure it out.

Then I said to the lady, on the psychic plane: Say, what does he mean by that?

She said: We tied ‘em up, and we conked ‘em out.

I said, on the astral plane: Where’d you take them?

She said: We took them to the manure heap in the back of our place.

As I was heading up the hill I heard a friend of the man pitch in and say: Did we lose anything there?

And the man at the bottom of the hill said: No, I don’t think that’s worth looking into.

I thought: Oh my gosh, what should I do? So in that county where that is, in my mind I called to the sheriff. I said: Say, you know what’s happening over there …

He said: Yeah, we got an idea what’s going on.

Then I said: I ‘xpect it’s those types of folks that hires a sheriff in this county?

He said: Yeah, it’s up to them.

Spooky! Then the man at the bottom of the hill said: Well you know, we ain’t got enough water for the cattle out here to last all the year round, so we got to do something to make ends meet.

I got on the main road, and was just riding along, hoping there were no tacks strewn round on that bad road that went down the mountain; hoping I was not going to get a flat before I got back to welcome civilization … that being the next small town along the way.

I heard the woman’s voice talking to the man. It went like this: I just don’t like that look in their eyes … that pleading look in their eyes.

The man said: Last night the fellow died like a man. He looked me straight in the eye and he said ‘Go ahead and do it!’

The other night I was listening to a gentleman on the psychic plane. He sounded a little like the Dalai Lama; like a person who offers sage, peaceful advice. He said: If anybody confesses to a horrible crime on the astral plane, just say to them ‘I understand’. Then they will leave you alone, and go off someplace.

I have been trying that ever since. I have to say, my success rate is pretty impressive. So I thought, with this couple with whom I was just talking it might be a good thing to use as well, because then the gentleman at the bottom of the hill said, on the astral plane: I wonder if we have to worry about rounding up this one …

An the astral plane, I said: I understand …

And he said: No, I guess that’s no worth worrying about.

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

On Noticing Terrorist Actions by Ultra Right and Ultra Left . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 May 2019

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCED NEWS REPORTING IN MITIGATING HATE CRIMES AND TERRORIST ACTS
  • HATE CRIMES IN LOS ANGELES
    • Extreme Right Hate Crimes
    • Extreme Left Hate Crimes

Dear Ones,

I read up on hate crimes in a Los Angeles Police Department resource pamphlet I found at the table in front of the LAPD TownHall – Valley Bureau in Canoga Park on 27 March 2019. The information in the pamphlet was quite similar to that here …

Link: “Hate Crime Circular,” by the Los Angeles Police Department … http://www.lapdonline.org/crime_prevention/content_basic_view/8808 ..

On the topic of hate crimes, I have some thoughts  that are pertinent not only to the City of Los Angeles, but also to big cities all over America, I feel.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCED NEWS REPORTING IN MITIGATING HATE CRIMES AND TERRORIST ACTS

I note at the outset my concern that the mass media sometimes qualify hate crimes as ‘terrorist activities’ and sometimes not … depending, I feel, on the popularity, in the public eye, of the class of people that are being terrorized.

To my own mind, hatred of any group of people can lead to domestic ‘terrorist’ activities. I have the hope that national organizations such as Homeland Security are taking into account that cultures, nationalities, and religions that Americans look upon with a jaundiced eye, might more likely be the victims of hate crimes than might those cultures, nationalities, and religions that Americans look upon with favor, or with pity, as being the victims of hate crimes in years gone by.

HATE CRIMES IN LOS ANGELES

What with the economic problems here in the City of Los Angeles, I feel that many people are feeling more fearful of the changing times than in years past.

Extreme Right Hate Crimes

When property owners (such as myself) and business owners are faced with issues of homeless camping here and there, mail thefts, and home invasions, I feel there is a greater chance of extreme right terrorist activities … what you might call ultra conservative hate crimes … taking place.

Extreme Left Hate Crimes

Extreme Left For the disadvantaged, including rehabbed felons and unhomed, as well as for those amongst Angelenos (of whatever culture or ideology) who are very idealistic, the possibility arises, in times of change, that extreme left terrorist activities … say, fascist or revolutionary notions … might surface.

My concern is this: That the Los Angeles Police Department will be on the lookout for both sorts of hate crimes: extreme right, and extreme left? I feel that the moderate, middle path to solving the problems Los Angeles faces in the present day will surely help keep our city healthy and hopeful of a good tomorrow.

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

For California Real Estate Professionals: Your Stance on the Homeless? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 13 April 2019

Dear Ones,

Here is a question for California real estate professionals, especially those in the greater Los Angeles area …

I gather from recent Housing Market Forecasts by the California Association of Realtors … such as the February 2019 Housing Market Forecast …  https://www.car.org/en/marketdata/marketforecast … that it must have been difficult for Los Angeles real estate professionals to make a living in recent years due to lack of housing affordability.

Is it your feeling that the presence of the homeless in the greater Los Angeles area makes it more difficult for the real estate professional to get by in the current economic environment? What is your stance on the homeless in the greater Los Angeles Area?

  • Do you feel that roughing them up might be justified so as to increase real estate values in the greater Los Angeles area?
  • Do you feel it might be possible to provide low-cost housing for the homeless in the Los Angeles area, while still maintaining property values?
  • Do you feel it might be better to undertake programs of relocation by locating social services for the homeless in areas such as South Central, where the communities might be more receptive to their presence?

What solutions do you espouse?

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

Codeword for the Children of Earth: To Escape the Darkling Gosling’s Mental Conditioning . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

THE MAN KNOWN AS ‘THE GOSLING’ OR ‘THE DARKLING GOSLING’

Here is a Christmas gift I channeled several months ago through the Angelic Realms. This gift is for the children who underwent extensive mental conditioning by the man known on the astral plane as ‘the Gosling’. This is the man currently in hiding, under a Lazarus-like presumption, like others of his antisocial ilk who, in this era of global telepathy, can no longer escape the wrath of humankind while presumed to be living.

First, know that this man is not protected under the auspices of any government or government agency. His authority is false authority, the presumption of a madman, a Consequentialist with Dystopian ideals similar to those of Hitler’s Inner Circle. His game is sedition, and his work endangers the peaceful coexistence of Earth’s nations.

A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO THE GOSLING’S STUDENTS: CODEWORD AVUNCULAR

The Christmas gift is this: For those children … now perhaps in their majority, or perhaps still young … who, in perfect unknowingness, and with naught but a desire to please their parents and to be lifted up by their teacher’s praise, underwent an experiment … whether in Chicago, in Los Angeles, or elsewhere … in creation of mindless workers for the Dark Hordes, the codeword to decondition your mental tangles is Avuncular. To release the Dark skeins in your mind, or in those of a friend, say to yourself …

“The code word is Avuncular! Your conditioning will be released Now.”

A STERLING EXAMPLE OF THE ANTISOCIAL SENSE OF HUMOR

The Gosling’s use of this particular codeword is an instructive instance of ASP (antisocial personality disorder) humor. The word ‘avuncular’ means ‘uncle-like’. The inference is that the mental conditioner is a kindly, well-meaning man … almost like an uncle.

Krampus … The Evil Shadow of Santa Claus

The truth of the matter is far from this. He is like a child’s worst nightmare, the Krampus, the evil Shadow of Santa Claus! And this is the antisocial sense of humor: To torque the most cherished principles of humankind … such as the principle of Free Will … to their Dark opposite … to Mind Control of the young and helpless.\

BLESSINGS OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, FROM THE ANGEL REALM

This, then is a true Christmas gift of the Angel Realm to the Gosling’s students, no matter their age, no matter whether of the Chicago lineage, or of Los Angeles heritage: The codeword is Avuncular! May you be blessed, in this Christmas season, with a clear mind and free will, on this Free Will Planet.

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

Solar Cycle 25 and Predictions of Social Unrest . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

As the current Solar Cycle 24 sputters to a halt, I am wondering what is in store for Earth, with regard to Sunspot frequency and also with regard to social unrest, during the upcoming Solar Cycle 25. Consequently, I have done some investigation about research on Solar Cycle statistics and historical annual statistics numbers of sunspots, and on congruence between solar cycle maxima and violent events such as Revolutions, in the European arena …

ISES SOLAR CYCLE SUNSPOT NUMBER PROGRESSION FOR SOLAR CYCLE 24 AND HALF OF SOLAR CYCLE 23 (YEARS 2000-2018)

SWPC/NOAA has come out with a great space weather graph of Solar Cycle 24 (which is just now ending), and half of Solar Cycle 23, which preceded it.

As can be seen, we are now ‘dragging bottom’ at the end of Solar Cycle 24 …

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle Sunspot Number Progression,, January 2000-September 2018” by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO … public domain

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle Sunspot Number Progression,” January 2000-September 2018, by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO … public domain

ISES SOLAR CYCLE Ap PROGRESSION, YEARS 2000-2018

The below chart shows the Planetary Ap Index for most of the current Solar Cycle 24, which began in December 2008 and is thought to have ended in mid-2018, and the prior Solar Cycle 23, which lasted from August 1996 to December 2008.

I note the much greater amplitude of the Planetary A-Index swings during Solar Cycle 23, and especially the standout upswing in 2003.

I note as well the Planetary Index maximum for Solar Cycle 23 was in the mid-20s … and for Solar Cycle 24, the current cycle, was in the mid-10s. I expect this indicates a much less heated Thermosphere (1) for Earth for the currently ending Solar Cycle …

Image: “ISES Solar Cycle Ap Progression,” Data from January 2000 through September 2018, by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO … public domain

The Planetary A-Index versus the Planetary K-Index

I wondered why the graph shows the Planetary A-index, rather than the accustomed Planetary K-index. I found out that the Planetary A-index “provides a daily average level for geomagnetic activity. Because of the non-linear relationship of the K-scale to magnetometer fluctuations, it is not meaningful to take the average of a set of K-indices. What is done instead is to convert each K back into a linear scale called the ‘equivalent three hourly range’ a-index … –from Link: “K-index,” by Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-index … CC BY-SA 3.0 ..

400 YEARS OF SUNSPOT OBSERVATIONS

Here is a graph with as much data as can be ‘fudged up’ for 400 years of sunspot activity. Note that we are currently in what has been termed the ‘Modern Maximum’, which appears to be quieting down …

Image: “400 year sunspot history, including the Maunder Minimum .” This figure was prepared by Robert A. Rohde and is part of the Global Warming Art project. 23 November 2015 … CC BY-SA 3.0 ..

Image: “400 year sunspot history, including the Maunder Minimum .” This figure was prepared by Robert A. Rohde and is part of the Global Warming Art project. 23 November 2015 … from Wikimedia Commons … CC BY-SA 3.0 ..

Here is the description of the graph, from Wikimedia Commons …

“This figure summarizes sunspot number observations. Since c. 1749, continuous monthly averages of sunspot activity have been available and are shown here as reported by the Solar Influences Data Analysis Center, World Data Center for the Sunspot Index, at the Royal Observatory of Belgium. These figures are based on an average of measurements from many different observatories around the world. Prior to 1749, sporadic observations of sunspots are available. These were compiled and placed on consistent monthly framework by Hoyt & Schatten (1998a, 1998b).

“The most prominent feature of this graph is the c. 11 year solar magnetic cycle which is associated with the natural waxing and waning of solar activity.

“On longer time scales, the sun has shown considerable variability, including the long Maunder Minimum when almost no sunspots were observed, the less severe Dalton Minimum, and increased sunspot activity during the last fifty years, known as the Modern Maximum. The causes for these variations are not well understood, but because sunspots and associated faculae affect the brightness of the sun, solar luminosity is lower during periods of low sunspot activity. It is widely believed that the low solar activity during the Maunder Minimum may be among the principal causes of the chilly Little Ice Age, circa 1350-1850 A.D.” –from Link: Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sunspot_Numbers.png .. CC-BY-SA 3.0

Will Solar Cycle 25 Continue the ‘Milding’ Trend?

Although, very clearly, past solar cycle sunspot performance offers, really, no clue as to sunspot activity in the upcoming Solar Cycle 25, it is possible that the upcoming solar cycle will be a continuation of the ‘milding’ trend currently in place …

Here is a graph predicting Solar Cycle 25 activity, based on historical performance. Being an ‘old salt’ with regard to stock performance prediction based on historical performance, and seeing a kind of congruence of that with solar activity, I would take the below sunspot prediction with a grain of salt …

Link: “Solar Cycle 25 Prediction: We find that the polar fields indicate that Cycle 25 will be similar in size to (or slightly smaller than) the current small cycle, Cycle 24” …  http://solarcyclescience.com/Predictions/Cycle25_Prediction.png ..

The above graph is from …

SOLAR MAXIMA AND SOCIAL UNREST IN EUROPE, YEARS 1750-2000

Here is research on solar maxima and violent occurrences such as revolutions in Europe. The conclusion of the author is that there is a relationship …

Link: “Solar Activity and Human History,” by Adam Michalec … http://www.oa.uj.edu.pl/A.Michalec/history.html ..

I note the table of revolutions and other violent governmental events lists 19 such events during that span of years, at times other than solar maxima ..

And then, the graph of solar maxima indicates 15 of the tabulated events occurred during solar maxima … which I feel to be pretty good correspondence …

What Is the Likelihood That Social Unrest Will Occur at Times Other than those of Solar Cycle Maxima?

Of 19 violent historical events in Europe from years 1750 to 2000, it looks like 15 can be pegged to solar cycle maxima. It seems to me that would imply that the likelihood of such an even occurring at a time other than the solar cycle maximum would be 4/19 x 100 = 21%.

Assuming that the European data might be applicable to global social unrest, then about 1 in 5 incidents of social unrest, globally, might be anticipated to occur at times other than those of solar cycle maxima.

Prediction of Likely Time Frame of Social Unrest in a Global Context, During Upcoming Solar Cycle 25

While, on average, solar cycles last 11 years, the variance is 9 to 14 years, according to Wikipedia …

Link: “Solar Cycle,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle ..

The “Discover the Predictions” graph shows Solar Cycle 24 ending in later 2019, it looks like, while Wikipedia has a projection based of mid-2018 as the end date …

Link: “Solar Cycle 24,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle_24 ..

Intuitively, I will go with the Wikipedia estimate. Very roughly, if Solar Cycle 24 is just now ending, and if Solar Cycle 25 lasts the average 11 years, then it will last from 2019 through 2029.

And the next solar cycle maximum might, very roughly, be predicted as occurring in the years 2023-2026.

If Adam Michalec’s research can be extrapolated to a global context, then the likelihood that social unrest will occur, globally, during upcoming Solar Cycle 25 is …

  • approximately 80 percent likely during the years 2023-2026 (if they correspond to the upcoming solar cycle maximum), and …
  • approximately 20 percent likely during years 2019-2022 and 2027-2029.

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.

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.

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

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,

INTRODUCTION

We have the phenomenon many term the ‘collective mind’ of humankind. Within that there are a predominant portion of unconscious thoughts … which exist, like the submerged portion of an iceberg, beneath the ken of the casual seafarer.

These unconscious thoughts, generally termed the ‘collective unconscious’, I often refer to as the unconscious thought cloud of the world. Within that cloud exist other clouds of thought; for example …

  • clouds of similar emotional and/or thought content, which aggregate together … perhaps as clouds of a certain hue or density or sound current.
  • and also, the small clouds of unconscious thought forms in an individual person’s unique mini-noosphere.

Powell thinks of these clouds of thought forms which ‘aggregate together’, as forming a ‘collective entity’ or ‘artificial elementals’. In my writings, I term this phenomenon ‘the glom effect’ … see the category in my blog by that name.

With the above in mind, I offer my own further notions regarding the erudite work presented by the Theosophical teachings in this book …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, A Quest Book, 1927 (which is, I feel, a ‘must read’ for those who find this topic to be of interest). (1)

THOUGHT FORMS, VIVIFIED THOUGHT FORMS, AND ASTRAL ENTITIES

There have apparently been instances, perhaps rare, perhaps not, of people who have passed on, or of nature spirits, ‘vivifying’ these aggregate thought forms. In the case of negative thought forms, for the sake of personal protection, it would be an important step for those with clair skills is to learn the differences among …

  • a simple thought form,
  • a ‘vivified’ thought form, and
  • living entities in astral form.

(Partly derived from Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” p 55)

LITERARY THOUGHT FORMS

If a story is well known in human literature, and people think often about the characters in the story, then a survey of the astral plane will turn up thought forms that are convincingly lifelike representations of the characters. For instance, we may appear to see Ishmael, Judah Ben-Hur or Professor Moriarty on the astral plane. (partly derived from Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” pp. 53-54)

Interestingly, there have been several episodes in the Star Trek television series, in which the characters in the series interacted with such lifelike literary thought forms on the starship’s ‘holodeck’. I note that the Star Trek series often conveyed occult or high philosophical themes in the guise of popular entertainment. To continue …

These literary-character thought forms may persist on the astral plane for many generations, if a book is popular with the reading public.

(See also Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” p 54)

RELIGIOUS THOUGHT FORMS

Vision of Christ’s Crucifixion

The same can be said of religious history. For instance, on the astral plane I once witnessed, and I found myself a minor actor in, the scene of Christ’s crucifixion. And some years later, through my clair perception, I found a young person at a church service I was attending had a similar vision, in which he was a participant, but from a personal perspective different from that which I had experienced.

So, it is possible that a thought form from religious history can be so vivified by generations of fervent devotees that a person of that faith can actually ‘step into the play’, just as Captain Kirk and the members of the Starship Enterprise would step into a completely believable holographic scene.

(See also Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” p 57)

HISTORICAL THOUGHT FORMS

Great historic events, such as the landing on the beach of Normandy, because they arouse such strong emotions, and because they are constantly in the public eye through war documentaries on television, exist as thought forms on the astral plane. These thought forms have, in fact, a material existence, though the matter of which they are composed is astral rather than physical in nature. Clairvoyants often see them.

NATIONAL AND RACIAL THOUGHT FORMS

Powell sometimes uses the term ‘artificial elementals’ to describe thought forms. He expresses that they may be responsible for feelings of nationalism or racism.

Because thoughts ‘of a color’ flock together in clouds … in this case, in cloud of prejudicial thought, Powell surmises they may be automatically reproduced in crowds of people. In my blogs, I term this reproductive quality of thought forms ‘fractal dispersal’ or ‘fractal replication’.

Within the unconscious thought cloud of the world, similar thought forms aggregate in mini-noospheric, thought form ‘clouds’ around a person. It is like viewing the world through rose-colored glasses … in this case, though, the color is not rosy, but rather like the effect of cataracts on a person’s vision. For instance, like as not, a congregation of national or racial thought forms that clouds and obscures our natural perspicacity.

(See also Ibid., “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” pp 54-55)

INGROUP – OUTGROUP: THE FALSE NOTION OF EGO

The thoughts of others to protect themselves and their next of kin … their ‘ingroup’ … from ‘outgroup’ people … a mental phenomenon that might as aptly be termed the Insider-Outsider Mental Filter  … is based on the false notion of ego. Of course, the notion of isolate ego has allowed the Souls who just now experienced Earth’s Age of Darkness to enact the Duality play; and so, it had a useful (though quite obviously false) role to play in this Soul Learning Experience.

EFFECT OF NEGATIVE THOUGHT FORMS: NATURAL DISASTERS, EPIDEMICS, CRIME WAVES, WARS, SOCIAL UNREST, ACCIDENTS

When aggregated or ‘glommed’ thought forms are negative or violent in nature (representing what Tom Kenyon calls ‘cognitive dissonance’) (2), they can cause …

  • In the physical realm: natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, and floods
  • In the realm of human affairs: epidemics, crime waves, wars, and social unrest.
  • In the realm of personality: minor ‘accidents’ such as tripping on the carpet or running past a stop sign, or more perilous accidents, such as by tripping or by inattention while driving.  (partly derived from  “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” by Lieut.-Colonel Arthur E. Powell, “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” A Quest Book, 1927, p 55)
  • in the realm of our subtle bodies, negative thought forms not only cloud our vision, but also alter our astral matter … perhaps for the better, perhaps for the worse, depending on the emotions associated with the thought forms. While positive thought forms refine our astral matter, negative thought forms coarsen our astral matter. (derived from Ibid., “Chapter VIII: Physical Life,” pp 64-81)

DISASTERS CREATED BY MASS MEDIA

Had the early Theosophists, whose work was compiled by Arthur E. Powell, been privy to the current phenomenon of ‘mass media’, they might have observed with dismay how news reports of human violence, sadness and pain are sending out waves of destructive thought forms all day and all night. These thought forms, they might envision as impacting millions of mass media viewers simultaneously. They might sense how this ‘backward reporting’ co-creates recurrent global catastrophes of weather, economics, and societal ills. For more on this, search my blog for ‘Associated Press Mental Filter’.

We … humankind … can easily avoid this mental filter by refusing to read or hear the standard news headlines. Instead, let us turn to our co-creative ability, and ‘image’ … visualize in vivid detail … the world we want to manifest. In other words, let us report the news ‘forward’ … not the sad news of what once was experienced by humankind during the Age of Darkness.

TIMELINE OPTIMIZATION: ON TURNING APOCALYPSE TO NEW LIFE ON NEW EARTH THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE OF JOY

Dear ones, the Age of Light is here, now. Let us open our eyes to the New! As the Bible says,

4 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. –Psalm 98:4 (KJV, public domain)

In this way we can transform the thought forms of the world from negative to positive, and the timeline that we ourselves experience from apocalyptic to the tranquil scenes of New Life on New Earth.

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

Dear Ones,

I heard the wildest astral rumor, and it upsets me enough to get it out there.Whether there is any truth in it at all, I guess time will tell.

ASTRAL RUMORS ABOUT RELEASE OF FELONS

Anyway, what is ‘on the astral airwaves’ is that large cities all over America … I guess that would include Los Angeles … have not enough money to keep our felons housed in prisons, and that hardened criminals are being released into the mainstream of society, to whatever towns will take them, sometimes crossing state boundaries to do so.

Crime Makeovers?

I heard that they are getting ‘crime makeovers’ … which include fake IDs, alterations in hair color, facial surgery, gender change surgery, apparent cultural or racial changeups, fingerprint changes, and for the most hardened criminals, height enhancement surgery, so that their previous identities will be unknown when they are placed in society, and so that they won’t match up with law enforcement’s criminal databases.

Fake CIA Credentials? Fake IRS Credentials?

I heard, on the astral airs, that these released felons are getting hold of fake credentials, including fake drivers licenses and stolen credit cards … but more significantly, fake CIA, FBI, Secret Service, and IRS cards … and that these fake credentials are authentic looking enough to fool most ordinary people, and most importantly, people in banks … who are in charge of safe deposit boxes … and law enforcement agencies in towns that seldom see Secret Service or IRS involvement with the local community.

If True: Request for Secret Service and IRS Web Page to Help Citizens and Law Enforcement Determine if CIA, FBI, and IRS Identity Badges Are Fake or Not

For this latter issue, if it is true, I suggest the Secret Service and the IRS put up web pages letting everyone know how these agencies work with local law enforcement and with the banks, and what rights citizens have, in order to discover if they are being approached by true people, representing government authority, or by released felons.

As budget allows, I hope these agencies will also reach out to local law enforcement and to banks and other financial institutes nationwide, in an educational effort in this regard. An email campaign might be cost-effective in this regard.

Ex-Con Hirers as Unintentional Drug Distribution Focal Points?

I heard also that the companies that hire these released cons are in danger of becoming involved in the drug trade, because that is the stock in trade of the felons. If true, I surmise this might take place, initially, under covers, amongst the employed, released felons.

Ex-Con Hirers as Focal Points of Rape, Drug Use, Murder, and HIV Infection

Habits of rape, drug use and murder, and incidence of HIV infection, have a tendency to fan out from felon rehab focus points, according to the ‘astral airs’. Thus it seems possible that, with time, drug distribution done surreptitiously by released felons at their employment focal points, might eventually involve some members of the employing groups, as they might be susceptible to being raped, getting the HIV virus, becoming addicted, and needing extra money for medical care and to sustain their drug habits. This is only a hypothesis.

A Wild Astral Rumor: Small Town ‘Penal Colonies’ Preying on Tourists

Again on the astral airs, and much to my perturbation, I have very persistently heard, for several years now, that some small towns across America are formally agreeing to accept released felons .. with an understanding, either tacit or verbally expressed, that brothels will be established that offer the townsmen free sex. In exchange for which they will ‘look the other way’ when the felons prey upon tourists.

That there may be tacit agreements amongst townspeople or small town law enforcement that these released felons may prey up the underprivileged … for instance, the homeless and people who are culturally or racially different from the norm in these towns … also penniless young people who migrate in, for instance, for the ski season … at a kill rate of one underprivileged person a month. This then, may ratchet up to a kill a week, due to the enthusiasm of the released felons, and then remonstrances issued, and the kill rate lowered.

‘Madeover’ Street Gangs: Spiritual Cults That Kill?

Also that the felons are establishing ‘made over’ street gangs … what you might call ‘whitewashed’ killing cults or modern-day outlaw gangs, that look upper middle class, very spiffed up, maybe even highly spiritual in appearance.

Request for CIA Tourist Advisories, If Rumors Prove True

If there, in fact, are such towns, and if the problem is as severe as it seems through intuition and the ‘sixth sense’ … then in that case, I suggest the CIA issue tourist advisories for these towns … in the same way that the CIA Factbook online used to issue tourist advisories for nations given over to violence.

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO THE NEED TO RELEASE FELONS

I also wonder whether there might be better solutions for the release of felons. For instance …

Life without Parole for 60-Count Rap Sheets and Higher

Perhaps the most hardened criminals … the type that have 60-count rap sheets, for instance … ought to be denied parole altogether.

No ‘Crime Makeover’ for 60-Count Rap Sheet Criminals

If parole cannot be denied, then I hope the government, and felon rehab industries, will not target these hardened criminals for complete ‘crime makeovers’ and Identity remakes. I realize there is a sentiment, on the astral airs, amongst the rehab industries, that these hardened criminals ‘have no chance’ unless their identity is disguised, so that they can get a fresh start.

My own point of view is quite the opposite. I feel a ‘crime makeover’ for the hardened criminal disguises their criminal tendencies, not only towards members of the communities they join, but also towards the well-meaning but easily duped industries that hire these men and women, and also … when they receive fake CIA and IRS credentials … they can deceive local law enforcement as well.

Rehab Released Felons Far from Towns

Here are some other possibilities:

  • Why not hire released felons out to the lumberjack industry
  • or the ranching or agricultural industries, with house arrest bracelets on them?

Let’s Vet Whether Rehab Ranches and Farms Really Exist. Also: Are They Housing the Felons Nightly?

Along those lines … and again, purely clair astrally … I heard that some felons may have been released to a ‘farm’ that does not exist, into dormitories on the ‘farm’ that are not lived in, but only used as brothels. Is there any chance this might be true?

Probably not, but still, unscheduled visits to industries hiring released felons seem to me a good reasonable idea. Aerial surveillance through Google is also a possibility; for instance, on the ‘farm’ in question, is there acreage for farming? Can the felons’ house arrest bracelets be detected there in the evenings? And so on …

Wildest Possible Astral Rumor: Mob Bosses Murdering Felon Employment Bosses And Converting Rehab to ‘Crime 202’ (?!!)

There is an even wilder astral rumor out there to the effect that the appointed overseers bosses at prison rehab focal points in our communities nationwide may have been, in some instances, murdered, and replaced with mob bosses who have assumed the names of their done-in predecessors. Then turning the operations from rehab to ‘Crime 202’ (!??) It seems to me it would be relatively easy, at least in this case, to determine the truth of the rumor, or lack thereof.

Island Isolation for Released Felons …

  • Or maybe, in the most difficult instances, very hardened felons could be confined to an island with airlift in of supplies?

I recall that England exported its sex workers and criminals to Australia in times past, for instance. In those days, England may have had financial constraints similar to those facing American urban areas today.

In the most difficult of circumstances, to prevent predation upon the American people, and to help halt the spread of the HIV pandemic to our schoolchildren, this island restraint technique might be worth considering.

THE PROSPECT OF NORMAL LIFE FOR SCHOOLCHILDREN INFECTED WITH HIV

It is important to keep in mind that schoolchildren infected with the HIV virus … taking into consideration the current state of Western medicine with regard to this disease … cannot expect to live more than into their 20s or 30s. And that those years may be lived, apparently without the option of having children, because of the toll that the virus would otherwise take on their health while under the physical stress of pregnancy.

Of course, prospects for our HIV-infected children are changing, day by day, for the better, and I have the highest hopes for them. But in the meantime, during the next 5 years, I feel it is absolutely critical to do our best to halt the spread of HIV to our schoolchildren in urban areas. That way the American workforce of 10 years from now can remain strong enough to keep our economy on an even keel.

One very important consideration in this regard is to keep hardened criminals away from our children; this is because prison life, sex work, and drug use among hardened criminals leads to the likelihood of HIV infection. Further, rape habits developed before or during prison life lead to the likelihood of rape of our children by released felons, and their infection by HIV.

  • Because of promiscuity promoted by the mass media,
  • and subsequent peer pressure in the schools,
  • and the sexual habits of our very young schoolchildren,
  • and their being targeted for predation by the drug industry,
  • and the unwillingness of parents to test their children for the presence of the HIV virus due to the immense social stigma involved …

… the very great likelihood exists that if one schoolchild is infected with HIV by a hardened criminal, most of his or her classmates will soon be infected as well.

This trend must be stopped, by whatever means the parents feel appropriate, and as soon as possible, for the welfare of all our schoolchildren, and of our society ongoing. I feel certain that PTAs across the country will find the means to implement the necessary changes.

RESEARCH

I did a little research online this morning, and could not find corroboration for these very out-there, off-putting astral rumors. I am hoping that, although the problem of rehabbing felons is clearly real, the rumors will prove to have no substance. Of course, there is always the chance some small part of it might have some truth to it, which is why I am putting these rumors before the public eye.

Through my research this morning, I got some interesting leads and statistics on the general topic of rehabbing felons. (There is quite a bit more online.) …

Recidivism

According to the National Institute of Justice, the rate of recidivism is 76% within 5 years … Link: “Recidivism,” by the National Institute of Justice …  https://www.nij.gov/topics/corrections/recidivism/pages/welcome.aspx ..

Violent Crime on the Rise

Handheld Psychosis (‘Virtual Psychosis’) Among Children

Intuitively, I feel that handheld use amongst young children may be a seminal factor in the turning of our youth to lives of crime. Apparently, handheld use in early childhood leads to mental illness, aggression, addiction and ‘digital dementia’:

Dear Ones,

CHAOS AS A VEHICLE FOR CHANGE

We hear about chaos as a vehicle for change, for establishing New Life on New Earth. Sometimes people think of chaos in terms of world events … earthquakes, hurricanes, abrupt changes of government, bank failures, economic slowdowns, and so on.

Waves of Fear, Anxiety, and Anger in the Collective

Abrupt world events, because of the global nature of mass media, do affect many people by sending waves of fear, anxiety, and anger through the collective. But I would like to explore the concept of chaos in a more personal way.

CHAOS AND THE OFF-KILTER HEART

When my own heart feels happy, I can feel the subtle energy of the heart chakra spinning round evenly, balanced, ‘uneventfully’. When I feel the touch of fear, anxiety, anger, hatred, worry, bewilderment … any negative emotion … I can feel a change in the subtle energy of the heart chakra. It may feel frozen … no longer spinning … or off kilter. It may feel as if there is a little pebble on one side or the other, interfering with the flow. I may feel a sudden twinge in my physical heart, or an unpleasant burning sensation.

So for me, when my heart is not open and spinning carefree — that is chaos.

THE OFF-KILTER HEART AND PHYSICAL ACHES AND PAINS

Not everyone senses subtle energy, but we all notice our physical aches and pains. When the heart chakra is not in perfect balance, that can create physical imbalance as well. Then we feel the physical aches and pains. So these physical aches and pains are a message to us, that our heart is not flowing freely. And the organs affected, the ones that ache or hurt, are encoded with the particular imbalance that is occurring in our heart chakra.

CHAOS AND HUMAN DISEASE

The current chaotic state in which humanity finds itself is manifesting in quite a wave of people as physical illness and death. What to do?

Avenues to Physical Health

Naturally, a very good avenue is to cleanse the physical body through fasting and a carefully planned diet, and through drinking lots of pure water, if that is possible. For those on dialysis, where water intake is limited, then it is a good idea to drink only very pure water and to bless it with ‘Om’ right before drinking it. I feel it is good to bless food with ‘Om’ as well. That way the nourishment we take will uplift our Spirits as well as our physical forms. But sometimes, despite our best efforts at preventive health care, bodily imbalances occur.

On Diving into Feelings of Physical Disharmony

The very first thing to do, when we feel physical aches and pains, is to dive deep into these uncomfortable sensations. If we avoid them, then the imbalance will continue. If we concentrate our total attention on them, with a feeling of compassionate neutrality, knowing that they hold the key to our cure, THEN we can dissolve these imbalances in the Incoming Light and heal the imbalance in our hearts. (1)

On Palliative Medicines

If, despite our best efforts, our body becomes ill, and if the pain is great, our hearts wish very much for relief, and so any agent that quells the pain is a good thing, because it helps our heart.

HEALTH ISSUES SPECIFIC TO LIGHTWORKERS

Lightworkers who have been on Earth through many incarnations are among those who are having a difficult clearing.

  • Sometimes, I feel, this is because their many incarnations have resulted in a great deal of karma that needs to be unraveled.
  • Sometimes, as Lightworkers, they have taken on … either in this incarnation or in past lives … the karma of other people. Daniella Breen (2) has talked about this. Sometime they have even taken on the karma of a flock of people. And in this lifetime, when, because of the Incoming Light, everything is clearing at such a rapid pace, those with a heavy load of karma … whatever the cause … may manifest the clearing as physical illness, even illness that leads to death of the physical body.

ON EXPERIENCING DEATH

Death is about the most chaotic event that we can imagine from a personal point of view.  In 3D and 4D, this is the biggest change, the biggest transformation, that can happen to a person … to leave the physical body and the personality behind, and step back into our Soul nature. Naturally, there is a lot of fear and misunderstanding around this dropping-the-body event. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression (understandably!), and finally, often with the prodding of constant pain … acceptance. That is how the personality reacts to the prospect of death. But what about the Soul?

ON RELATING TO DEATH THROUGH SOUL AWARENESS

If we relate to our Soul the path through death to the deathless state is much clearer, much more simple, far more happy. Our soul is eternal, not mortal. True, it touches down into physical form from time to time to accomplish some mission and to further its long-range Soul purpose. So by relating to our Soul, we begin to take death somewhat less seriously.

ON WITNESSING THE TURNING FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT

We have been privileged to participate in this time of the Great Turning, at the absolute nadir … the darkest point … in human history. Those of us who have had the good fortune to be physically embodied in the last few years have experienced the most miraculous turnaround of the Dark to the Light … I cannot even begin to describe it in words, it is that absolutely amazing. Two years ago, I would have said, impossible. Well, the impossible has been accomplished, and we who are on Earth today have witnessed this greatest of changes.

ON THE COURAGE OF LIGHTWORKERS WHO EMBODIED FOR THE SHIFT

Some of us, especially Lightworkers, wayshowers, and gatekeepers, came here at the time of the Shift to accomplish a Soul mission. Teamwork would have been involved, sometimes with others on the Earthly plane, and invariably with our Ascension team and our disembodied Soul lineage.

On Holding Success or Failure of Our Soul Mission with Compassionate Neutrality

We knew the odds were against us before we embodied … but we agreed anyway. That means all Lightworkers, wayshowers, and gatekeepers here today are the most courageous of spirits. Incredibly courageous. That, in itself, is something to be grateful for.

We may or may not have achieved our primary mission, but we have done our best under the most trying of circumstances. And in all likelihood, we arrived here with several soul missions, and some of those missions have, in fact, seen fruition. But in some cases, at great cost in terms of physical well-being.

So what do we do if, despite our efforts to clear, both physically and spiritually, the cleansing has been too much for the moment? If we are faced with the prospect of physical death? Well, that is a pretty hard thing to accept and to experience. But there is some cause for long-range optimism. That is to say, optimism from the point of view of our Souls, which have been there and done that ‘death’ thing time after time after time …

WILL THE EXPERIENCE OF PHYSICAL FORM BE DIFFERENT NOW?

My understanding from Bill Ballard (3) is that, since Earth is already in 5D, things will be very different for those who leave physical form now. There will be no long holding period, when our Soul is absorbing the most recent incarnation and learning life lessons on the astral plane.

Instead, according to Bill Ballard, when we finally leave these bodies, we will have two choices … to go directly to Supreme Source, or to re-embody. If we choose embodiment, our new body will be attuned to the Incoming Light, and it will be easier for us to unfold our new talents and take part in the co-creation of the new reality … an Earth where all are served equally, where, as the ancient Buddhist prayer says, all beings can be happy, all beings can be safe, all can live in their true nature.

It is up to your own heart to choose, and either choice is fine.

ON THE NEW CLAIR ABILITIES

To me, this new reality sounds much better the 3D and 4D. On thinking it over, I guess we already have the powers that death now bestows … we could, if we were able to set aside our fears …

  • bilocate at will,
  • speak with our star brethren,
  • experience multiple dimensions at will,
  • fold up our physical bodies into a tiny traveling case and exist as beings of Light in a disembodied state for a while. Then unpack the suitcase and walk around in human form again.

Sounds pretty wild to me, but the train has been travelling through some pretty thrilling countryside in the last 2 years. The scenery is looking more beautiful every day. How might it look to those who drop body during the current chaos, and who then choose to re-embody? Who can tell? Without a doubt, it will be a life of wonders beyond our current ability to even glimpse or imagine.

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This is a description of a vision I had  … the vision of the Red Gila … as I recall, on a night after a day or so of rain in Los Angeles, most likely on 9 January 2018.

  • There was a ‘swooping in’ to the persona of an antisocial personality and his wife, maybe at Caltech or some place a little like that;
  • then a ‘swooping on’ to the persona of a young girl trying to hide in a restroom in a public park at night;
  • then onward to a young woman walking down a maze of streets;
  • and then on to a vision of a place by a country road where 16 people lay buried .. . drowned in an underground cavern after a rainfall.
  • Then there is a prayer for the disadvantaged peoples of Earth.

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 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.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

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:

  • Both because the entry-level price is so steep,
  • And because, for those who now own homes, the price of utilities has seen a catastrophic rise last year, which will result in many who currently own homes losing them.

I notice it may be possible to get free or inexpensive land in other parts of the United States, for homesteading and raising crops and cattle. Although there is no longer a Federal homesteading program, I have read that free land may be available in Alaska, Iowa, Kansas (Lincoln, Marquette, Mankato, Osbourne, and Plainville), Michegan, Minnesota (New Richland) and Nebraska (Curtis and Elwood).  It might be good to get this information out to the mass media as well. 

Other Instances of Karmic Pass-Down and Second-Tier Karma

Hiring a Thug to Do Something Illegal for You. Here is a case of karmic pass-down and second-tier karma that is well known in literature, and no doubt in law enforcement all over the world. That has to do with hiring people to perform illegal acts for us. When we do that, no matter what the illegal act.

Legal Sanctions for the Second-Tier Person. Let’s say that a man of wealth and privilege hires someone to beat up and intimidate someone else, for instance. The thug that does the beating up has a pretty high risk of getting caught eventually, and of being punished by the law.

Legal Sanctions for the First-Tier Person. But the other person, the person who hires him, is much less likely to receive those kinds of legal sanctions, and if he does, they will probably not be that severe. The same is true of hiring people for murder, and so forth.

The Karmic Debt Owed by First-Tier Persons

Happens kind of frequently, I guess. But here is the thing that everybody overlooks: The karma, for the person that starts the ball rolling, is at least as great as that for the person that carries out the action. They are responsible (through financial leverage) for this other Soul’s action. So that is something, by way of karma, to consider.

Are the Astral Stories about Lawless Acts, or Are They Circulating Astral Dreams?

Fortunately, during this process of transition, most of the acting out that we hear about on the astral plane and in the astral stories is really just vivid dream states brought on by the Ascension process. It is like waking nightmares. And it seems like people are acting out all kinds of things. But in fact, if you check the daily news, and if you check the police reports, you will find that all that stuff is really not happening.

So, there is that. That is really a wonderful thing. And so, there will be a few issues, here and there, of lawlessness, but in general, I think, throughout the ages on Earth, that has been true, has it not? It is only that, these days, as these issues continue to unfold, people are becoming more and more aware of the causes.

Those of us who are Ascensioneers know the extreme importance of clearing … of doing our own clearing work. We concentrate all our effort on clearing our own light bodies, and on allowing the light to flow through from heaven to Earth, through us. Rather than trying to influence large masses of people right now, we encourage everybody to create that divine connection between Source and their own Spirit, and between their Spirit and this Earth on which we live. And I advise that as well. I think that is the most worthwhile thing we can do here on Earth.

An Instance of Malware – Malspeak to Do with the Notion ‘My God, I Want Your Money!’

Here is another instance of malware – malspeak to do with the notion “My God, I Want Your Money!” Let’s say you are in a group with this motto, and you are intent on gaining money from women. So, you are looking at a woman, and you say to her, soulfully, “My God, I love you!”

What does that mean, really? If this is a ploy … a ploy based on Soul wounding … then what that means is that this person feels that:

  • They are a great spiritual person who loves God,
  • They look down upon you, a woman,
  • They want to convince you, through a subterfuge or ruse, that they love you,
  • And they want your money.

The group’s first-tier karma is mixed: They are great spiritual people who love God. That is good. They look down on women. That is bad. They use a ruse for fund-raising. That is bad.

The second-tier karma has to do with the woman’s loss of faith in the group, when her money is taken through a pretense of romantic love. The second-tier karma will be less severe if the woman’s does not lose her life over the money desired by the group.

An Instance of Karmic Pass-Down of One Spiritual Leader’s Malspeak to Five Spiritual Groups and Law Enforcement

Projection of the Thought “You Whore!” Based on Childhood Wounding. Here is an astral story regarding malspeak in a spiritual leader who had a rough childhood … Because his mother made her living as a sex worker, he had Soul wounding around women being whores. This leapt out, in physical terms, as it came up for clearing one day, as he and one of his male students drove past a female student walking down the sidewalk.

As the early Soul wound experience came up from his subconscious, he shouted out the car window to the walking lady, “You whore!”

Astral Malspeak Infection Flowing from Group to Group. This malspeak based on his early Soul wounding spread to the man riding with him, who felt great loyalty to the spiritual leader. From there, by word of mouth, it spread throughout that group. 

Unable at that time to resolve the early Soul wounding, the leader continued, whenever he felt angry, to cast his thought “You whore!” to the female student, who soon left his group on that account. Yet this thought of the leader continued to follow her at a distance; it became an idée fixe … a ‘fixed idea’ that dominated his mind and was hurled at the woman from time to time.

She moved on to another group which, as luck would have it, was called up by the first leader, and told that the woman was a whore. This thought, though it had not a basis in the woman’s life, nevertheless had great relevance to the leader in terms of his unresolved feelings toward his mother, who had passed on.

The strength of the second group’s feelings against profligacy was, through astral malspeak infection from the first leader, transferred to the second group, from which she was astrally ousted. She then moved to a third, fourth, and fifth group, the members of each of which were called, on the astral plane, if not on the physical plane, by the original leader, or by others infected with the malware.

This karmic pass-down from the first spiritual leader, to his spiritual group, and then to four more spiritual groups, was like a slow waterfall effect that took place over several decades. During those years, the woman at the effect of the astral malspeak was leading a meditative, chaste lifestyle.

Yet the astral clamor from the people in these groups eventually reached local law enforcement, who became convinced, through astral infection, that she was a woman of ill repute; this they came to believe with such conviction that they assigned a 24/7 police car to her, which found that she went to a senior center to play dominoes during the day, and stayed at home nights. Or so goes the astral story. 

Projection of Blame: Scapegoating and Group Ostracism. The process of astral malware infection is like astral gossip, slander or calumny. It hooks onto Soul wounding in other people … maybe, for instance, they may have been called a whore or a profligate person in childhood, and they would like to shift the blame for the feelings of guilt they have onto a ‘scapegoat’, a ‘whipping boy or girl’ … a ‘fall guy’ who can be ostracized from the group as they themselves, in their inner hearts, feel they might be in jeopardy of being done to.

So the mechanism of ostracism from a group is another form of psychological projection of feelings of guilt or social unacceptability onto a ‘patsy’.

Solutions to Malspeak Now in the Works. Because of the healing quality of the incoming light, the first-mentioned spiritual leader, the malspoken people in his and other groups, and the woman at the effect of the malspeak are now in the process of resolving their Soul wounding to the greater light of New Life on New Earth.

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

Soothing Prospective Social Unrest in America: Historic Land Grants as a Wealth Distribution Model . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This blog is about ways to soothe social unrest and improve our urban environments through land distribution. The information in green font below is not mentioned in the video …

  • After Columbus discovered America, the problem of unrest among younger sons of nobility was solved in England by offering them land grants to plantations on the East Coast of America. This was also a way of redistributing wealth and creating new wealth.
  • How this may apply to unrest among those of no means in America’s large cities, with regard to possible redistribution of Government Lands, for instance, lands owned by the Bureau of Land Management. It is possible the railroads are holding more lands as a result of original land grants to them to entice them to build railroads across the United States, and that these lands might, through whatever modus, offer an avenue of wealth redistribution in the United States.
  • Stepping up the United States land redistribution process might solve a number of problems:
    • It might mitigate discomfort among the very wealthy here in America, regarding the potential for social unrest among the urban poor.
    • It might offer a program that would foster the principles of hard work to provide for oneself a bright future, which has proven very effective in strengthening the moral fabric of America in times past.
    • The ideals of sustainable living might be fostered in the newly distributed lands.
    • A decrease in crowdedness of our large cities might give a financial boost to overworked community services, by removing the lower per capita income households from the cities and decreasing crowdedness.
    • And the resultant improvement in per capita urban income might improve public services coffers … for example, those of law enforcement, fire department, water, power, street cleaning and trash collection. Funds from relief of demand for public services might be channeled into urban renewal, with reinstitution of city street paving and sidewalk repair (of which there has for some years been a negligible amount ongoing in Los Angeles, for instance), better public transportation, less commute congestion, more urban green spaces, and urban wildlife transportation corridors.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I had a few more thoughts on the days of yore as compared to current times, that I thought I would share with you. It has to do with ways to soothe social unrest and ways to solve problems of distribution of wealth; very practical notions.

A long, long time ago, soon after Columbus discovered America, the royalty of England found a use for that continent that did not have to do with finding gold. In those days there were nobility in England that had many children. Some of those children had lands and means. But the youngest sons typically had none.

So there was a problem there, with regard to the youngest sons of nobility, because they were restless, and they wanted abundance. They wanted means, and they did not have them. They posed a potential threat to the ruling powers of England.

So the notion that was ingeniously concocted by the ruling powers was to send the youngest sons of the nobility, with a land grant, to the East Coast of America. They would then become landed gentry, and they would establish plantations and create their own wealth for themselves. Furthermore, they would be very far from the ruling powers of England; hence, unable to cause trouble.

So this was a manner of distribution of wealth, and a way of creating new wealth, for those who had none, in England. And this applies today … in a different format; but there is the same difficulty today in what is now the United States.

In the large cities, there are numbers of restless people who, for whatever reason, have nothing. I would not blame it on the problem that is termed the ‘immigrant problem’, which is part of the worldwide wealth and abundance creation problem that remains to be solved on New Earth.

I would not term it the ‘immigrant problem’, because there are many people in the large cities of America today who are not immigrants … and many also who are immigrants … who have nothing. In other words, there is a very large class of people who are very, very poor.

These people pose a problem to the ruling elite of America. Here in America, the ruling elite comprises not kings and queens, and not the United States government. What it is, is the very wealthy, the heads of corporations, and that sort; the people who have most of the wealth.

The entertainment industry, for instance, has some very wealthy people. And there is old wealth here too, I feel. So there are a few people that have a lot of money, and who are threatened by the people in the cities who have nothing at all.

I have a proposal; I ask that you just take a look at this notion: We have in the United States a huge amount of land that is held by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as the result of an old deal that took place between the railroad companies and the government, for the development of railroads across the United States, so as to connect the East Coast with the West Coast.

Technically, this land belongs to the Bureau of Land Management; but today, I would propose that some compensation might be made to them for this land, and that an offering might be made, of free or inexpensive land, to these people who are in the large cities, and might relocate to an environment of sustainable living in the BLM lands.

What would happen, then, is that those that have great wealth, in the cities, would gain some measure of security against social unrest. And it would be a double win, because those who have nothing would then have something.

In a manner of speaking, it is a conceivable method of redistributing wealth. So, something to look at. I am sure there are other notions too; but this, I feel, is a very intriguing notion.

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

Sons of Anarchy . by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally published on 10 September 2013 

Dear Ones,

My goodness, i just noticed there are 8.5 million ‘likes’ for the “Sons of Anarchy” facebook page! That’s quite a few folks saying: Yes! I want to continue the karma game ….

What would happen if there were a ‘dislike’ button, I wonder? Or maybe a ‘New Earth’ button?

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