Dear Ones,

This I know from telepathy: In America today, the sex drive is greatly repressed at an early age.

On our sexual organs depends our very existence as human beings on Earth. Sublimation of the sexual urge results in great masterpieces of creativity, art, religion, mystical experience, the very vision with which humanity shapes its future.

Cultural repression is an act of aggression against the genital organs, and the act of repression imprints on these organs cellular memories of hatred, lack of self-worth, low self-esteem, inability to express creativity, inventiveness, and play in our adult lives, and fantasies of violent sex, rape, the act of being raped, and sexual torture.

Because of our early cultural training, these cellular memories have been deeply repressed. I glommed onto them a few years ago, when I started sensing, through telepathy, other people’s emotional thoughts. There is a great disconnect, in the world today, between our mental bodies and our emotional bodies.

Sidebar: Jung on Sublimation of the Sex Drive

C. G. Jung believed sublimation to be mystical in nature, thus differing fundamentally from Freud’s view of the concept. For Freud, sublimation helped explain the plasticity of the sexual instincts (and their convertibility to non-sexual ends). The concept also underpinned his psychoanalytical theories which showed the human psyche at the mercy of conflicting impulses (such as the super-ego and the id). Jung criticized Freud for obscuring the alchemical origins of sublimation and for attempting instead to make the concept appear scientifically credible:

“Sublimation is part of the royal art where the true gold is made. Of this Freud knows nothing, worse still, he barricades all the paths that could lead to true sublimation. This is just about the opposite of what Freud understands by sublimation. It is not a voluntary and forcible channeling of instinct into a spurious field of application, but an alchemical transformation for which fire and prima materia are needed. Sublimation is a great mystery. Freud has appropriated this concept and usurped it for the sphere of the will and the bourgeois, rationalistic ethos …

“This criticism extends from the private sphere of his correspondence (as above) to specific papers he published on psychoanalysis:

“Freud invented the idea of sublimation to save us from the imaginary claws of the unconscious. But what is real, what actually exists, cannot be alchemically sublimated, and if anything is apparently sublimated it never was what a false interpretation took it to be …”

ALIENATION OF OUR EMOTIONAL BODIES FROM OUR MENTAL BODIES

Through telepathy, for instance, I can hear a person’s emotional thoughts on one ‘sound track’ of their being, and a person’s ‘mental thoughts’ on another ‘sound track’ of their being. Same person, two different sound tracks. And the most interesting thing is, as a general rule, these two sound tracks are diametrically opposed; they are exact opposites.

And also as a general rule, the emotional sound track expresses culturally repressed negative emotions, and the mental sound track expresses socially acceptable lies about our emotional state. Never the more so than with respect to the sex drive, I might add.

Scenarios of genital mutilation, rape, incest, sexual torture, and mass murder, for instance, have been unfolding over again in the emotional minds of people everywhere, Telepathically speaking, it has been a long, grueling, and pretty appalling learning experience for me, and one that is only beginning to rise to conscious Awareness in other folks.

Here is what I have learned: We humans are not what we appear to be. And, it i up to us to discover what we really are. To admit our emotional truth into our Awareness; to come to terms with it. To overcome our cultural mental filters and step into the light of Higher Truth.

REPRESSED CHURNING OF SEXUAL FANTASIES

To get back to sexual repression: Freud notes the plasticity of the sex drive, how it can be sublimated and channeled into other activities (I assume he means by this, sports). Unlike hunger and thirst, suppression of the sex drive doesn’t result in death, he notes. So, it has been biologically possible to culturally repress this drive …

Citation: “Freudian Repression, the Unconscious, and the Dynamics of Inhibition,” by Simon Boag, 2012, Ch. 7. A General Model for Situating Repression,” subheading “Sexuality and Repression,”  page 119, second paragraph”

When our sexual drive is repressed, in our deep subconscious minds we continually churn through sexual fantasies. And this provides some degree of sexual stimulation.

Just now, as the Ascension process unfolds, these constant subconscious sexual fantasies are coming to conscious Awareness. Because of our cultural mental filters, at least insofar as I hear telepathically, everyone seems to be pointing their finger at someone else …

One person thinks: It’s your fault! You’re an unethical sexual libertine!

Then the accused person thinks: For sure it’s not me! That’s impossible!

I hear it from everyone. If we were not being so punishing one to the other, on the repressed emotional-body telepathic plane, I would think it humorous. From the perspective of the Divine, which is a tad more neutral than most of us at the moment, l expect it is pretty humorous … child’s play among his wonderful, deeply cherished children.

MYTH OF THE FALL OF TARA … SEXUAL ANGUISH AND DIMINUTION OF THE ENERGY OF THE HEART

I have my own theories about why our culture, and many cultures round the world, repress the sexual drive in children. These theories have to do with the fall of Earth, once known as Tara, through the 4th dimension into the 3rd, where it has been at the mercy of beings in the lower levels of 4D, who have distorted the second chakra energy through pain, so as to limit the energy of our hearts and the majesty of our Souls. In so doing, they have until now kept us humans from rising back into 5D.

………………..
Sidebar: The Fourth and Fifth Dimensions

4D, the fourth dimension, is the ‘astral plane’ that we experience between incarnations. It includes heaven, purgatory and hell. It is also where we spend our sleep time during an incarnation. And where we go when we do astral travel.

5D, the fifth dimension, is what Christians term ‘the Kingdom of Heaven’. In that realm there is no Duality; all is Light, love and joy. This is the realm of Christed and Buddhic consciousness.

………………..

Now, because of the Incoming Light, these beings are gone from 4D. Over the last 2 years I’ve felt their ‘sustenance,’ the sexual and survival anguish of humankind, slowly but surely diminishing. I have felt these beings’ growing hunger, their diminishing numbers, and finally their absence from Earth altogether. Thank goodness for that!

But still remaining here on Earth is the damage they’ve done to our etheric bodies, to our human energy fields. And ours it is to repair that damage … Ours it is to return to a notion of our sexual drive that is positive, that promotes peace in the world and in our human relationships, that sustains the magnificent energy of our human hearts.

MUTUAL SEXUAL SATISFACTION

I expect this will be ‘old hat’ to the younger generation, but, for the sake of us older folks, here goes. According to a 2014 article …

Link: “The Power of the Female Orgasm: Why Women Should Always Come First,” by Sophie Holloway, 23 September 2014 … http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/the-power-of-the-female-orgasm–why-women-should-always-come-first-9751642.html ..

… only 30 percent of women climax during intercourse. Apparently, many women in America today fake orgasm because they know that their sexual partners are too impatient to ask them how they may best provide that joy. Further, they know that their husbands’ self-esteem will be lowered if they do not pretend they have climaxed.

What an amazing sign of the end of the Atlantean era … although it is so important to their happiness and to the longevity of their marriage, women are reluctant to address with their sexual partners the topic of what it takes for their own sexual satisfaction. Men, more on this topic here …

Link: “Is Your Woman Faking Orgasm: How To Know Whether She Might Be Faking The Big O, Why She’s Doing It & What To Do About It,” by Vanessa Burton … http://www.askmen.com/dating/vanessa_60/62_love_secrets.html ..

In seeking sexual pleasure in our sexual relationships, let us remember each to ask the other how we may best provide that joy, and how we might like to receive it. Let us not assume at one moment that yesterday’s intel applies. Let us ask each other, from moment to moment, how we can best help each other to a pleasurable experience.

REUNIFICATION OF THE SACRED AND THE PROFANE: DIVINE ORGASM

Image: “What Happened in the Garden?” A child’s drawing of the Garden of Eden … https://userscontent2.emaze.com/images/4ccd6410-6a1b-4304-9065-d843d87040bf/b8a5169a-3c4c-4aeb-ab59-ff62be4b2fc8.png .. 

I have an acquaintance who feels that human orgasm is the most powerful vehicle for upliftment that exists on planet Earth today. That, she feels, is because of the intense burst of emotional energy that accompanies orgasm. Her suggestion is that at the moment of orgasm, one call forth the highest spiritual intention to which they aspire.

  • It might be a vision of world peace, or of total healing for planet Earth.
  • One might call forth peace, love, and joy.
  • One might consciously feel the upliftment of all human beings through love at this moment.
  • One might wish for a good rain, so that crops may grow.
  • or the graceful easing of Earth’s tectonic plates, so that no big earthquakes will occur.
  • or for the purification of the water in Earth’s underground aquifers, waterways, and oceans.
  • or for clearing of the air over our cities.
  • or for cleansing of money and return to a sense of abundance.
  • or for the return of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine
  • or for the highest and best future for all the world’s children
  • and so on….

My feeling is, this intention of upliftment during the act of sex might also uplift and sanctify each of us, and heal that old, painful mental dichotomy that separates the ‘sacred’ from the ‘profane.’

In this way, slowly but inevitably, we can transform our genital cellular memories, transmute our sexual experience to utmost joy, and rekindle our creativity, our artistic sense, our inventiveness, our playfulness, our ability to venture ‘outside the box’. As a world society, through our creative vision, we will be able to transform our reality, to make Earth a safe and nurturing environment for generations to come.

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

Dear Ones,

This is about a Dark Night of the Soul experience regarding blame, judgment, and ostracism. The dynamic of Ego, societal expectations, and our co-creative power. Letting go, surrender. facing the void, nothingness, not knowingness. Developing the skills of personal transformation, sublimation, and faith in God.

I listened to Judy Satori’s 27 May 2015 show “Beyond Healing” (5pm PT) on Bob Charles’ Pyramid One Network. On the show, Judy Satori mentioned that in the last few weeks we had been experiencing the energy of the Aldebaran Stargate, which is the energy of New Beginnings, of Soul clearing, and of unusual weather changes on Earth. I feel it is possible that the Aldebaran Stargate energy may have had something to do with the content of the video.

After the Video is a heavily edited Summary of the video.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I have been doing Judy Satori’s … https://judysatori.com Kuan Yin (Quan Yin) activations of Light for close to a week now. I have been concentrating on major blocks to the heart chakra. There are so many things that I am interested in; but I thought the heart is the center of everything … So if I cannot decide where to start, that would be the place to start. So that is what I did.

In the evening, I have been doing this meditation … drinking a lot of water, and then the transformation process happens. The easy stuff happened at the beginning, you know? The delightful stuff. Then it started getting down towards the really difficult stuff. And no doubt there will be more of it.

So, just to give you an idea about yesterday: Yesterday was very commotional: From the point of view of my emotional body, I felt sad all day long. And there was no particular reason for it. Overwhelming sadness … grief …  from the seat of my Soul and from my high heart.

I can remember blaming a lot of people for it, with no particular cause involved; I just felt like blaming people in my mind, you know? And yet, the energy was welling up, and out, and there was no cause; there was no reason.

So then last night, things had gone so tumultuously all day long that I thought: Gosh, I will not do that activation of Light tonight! … When the emotional body gets all upset, it feels like the end of the world; it really does. And so I thought: I just cannot take one more night of activations of Light!

I was in such a state, when I went to bed, that I had a vision: I sat up, and I was doing a meditation, and I had a vision, which I am going to tell you about …

The Societal Expectations Mental Filter

A little background here: Lately, in the last month, I have been dealing with a nexus … a mental filter … the societal expectations mental filter … that involves …

  • The ego … which is my mode of interacting with this reality;
  • Societal expectations … upon which the ego depends for interaction with reality, and for its definition of itself; and
  • The unlimited co-creative power of humankind, which is my birthright, and which, in my current reality, is not manifested, or appears not to be manifested for anyone in this world. (But I will grant you that the hologram that I see, is only my own.)

What has been coming up, in the clairaudient realm, has been the demands of society … the demands that I not speak my truth; that I not live the mission of my Soul … the demands that I not feel my heart energy … over and over again.

Judgment and Blame, Unconditional Love, Sexual Taboos, the Veil, and Our Infinite Co-Creative Potential

The other thing that I kept running across, was being blamed for things, over and over again. It felt like other people were judging me, and blaming me. Whoever I thought of … any person that I thought of … it felt like what I was receiving were thoughts of my own personal limitations: The need for me to ratchet down from unconditional love and from the ability to co-create everything … to ‘fulcrum’ down into a reality that does not recognize that.

For one thing, what I would hear was that I was always forcing people to feel sexual. And that is interesting, because one of the things that we learn, when we start to explore our central vertical power current … what they call kundalini energy: The sushumna, the ida and the pingala (the three channels) … is that we start to sense what they call the pranic column energy … what they call the ‘hara line’ … and we start to master the flow of energy amongst the chakras.

And so for me, the idea of the energy of the second chakra … sexual energy … is part of a whole; part of a whole cascade of energetic responses that allows us to realize our greatness as human beings. I do not have a societal notion about the energy of the second chakra. Instead, I have a notion that that energy is part of my outpouring of creative impulse, as form in the world.

It seems that, for many, that energy is confined to a societal tableau in which one can express only through procreation with a person of opposite gender. And so, people seem to get stuck in that.

And then around that … encapsulating that energy … is a repressive societal energy which pushes that energy down, through the taboos regarding alternate lifestyles. Beyond that Veil formed by repressive energies is the infinite co-creative potential of people.

So first we have to let go the judgment around what we term ‘sexuality’, in order to reach the infinite co-creative potential of humankind. I am not saying that this has to be reflected in behavior. But in our minds, we need to let go the cage of that thinking … that societal expectation. This is the core of my blogs regarding sacred sexuality. (See my blog category: Sacred sexuality ). And it has to do with the vision that I had last night.

Vision by Alice: Slave Planet Blues

As I recall, the vision went like this … It is somewhat more involved, because the mind does tend to make fantasies that are very involved. … And so, the vision was something like this: I imagined that I was in an alternate world where there was no free will. And I … no surprise! … imagined that I was being judged by a tribunal of people who all said that I had no Soul, and that I was a bioengineered, human-looking program that was intended to destroy the entire world!

Now that is judgment! And that is a world where every being can experience the third chakra negative, bigtime: Power over, powerlessness … a Slave Planet. And the theory was that I had been bioengineered … nightmare, right? [laughs] …  I had been bioengineered to take humans off-planet … to a Slave Planet … where they would not be able to ascend. And that millions of people had been transported, through me, off-world, for that reason … Let’s see; how did it go? … Oh, yes …

And that I was not really the person who commanded this space station. The commander of this space station was talking to me, and claiming that he was the one that was supposed to have control. But I … a bioengineered product … had somehow cottoned to the notion that there is free will, and stepped out … of my own accord … into a notion that I could control my own destiny. Totally scary stuff! [laughs]

So, here were all the beings that I could hear, on the clair plane … agreeing that I was some aberrant servomechanism [‘servo’ means ‘slave’] that refused to serve [laughs] …

I can feel my gut brain talking right now. This is what my gut brain is saying: I am a servant … or something or other … The food that comes in, I have to digest. I have to do what the unconscious thought cloud of the world bombards me with. I have to think those thoughts all day long

This is the neurons in the gut that they have discovered, right? Adam Hadhazy and his story …

Link: “Think Twice: How the Gut’s ‘Second Brain’ Influences Mood and Wellbeing,”  in “Scientific American,” 12 February 2010, by Adam Hadhazy … https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/gut-second-brain/ ..

And so the neurons in the gut are creating this vision of a Slave Planet that I have created, and that I have transported all my friends and relatives, and a lot of strangers too, and caused their total destruction. And that there is no hope of escape, because somebody or other has stolen my Soul, and damaged it to such an extent that it cannot be used.

…..

Dark Night of the Soul and Martian Bacterial Colonists of the Human Colon

On second glance, in November 2016, it seems to me that this vision may have to do with the social memory complex of the bacteria (Martian bacteria) colonizing my gut …

Link: “Compendium of the Martian Archives: Bacterial Colonists of Earth.” by Alice B. Clagett, 9 July 2017, updated, https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7sz ..

This social memory would no doubt be Martian-species-centric.

  • Suppose, for instance, that Martian bacteria set up ‘space stations’ in individual human bodies when Mars became uninhabitable.
  • Suppose they feel they have Souls and humans do not (just as humans feel they have Souls and bacteria do not).
  • That humans exist to serve them.
  • That we are machines that have gone awry during the recently concluded Age of Darkness, exercising free will in ways that are detrimental to our physical functioning, and
  • That we are causing Martian genocide through our eliminative processes.

Surely there are a large contingent of helpful or biologically neutral bacteria in our bodies. Suppose there are ‘good’ Martian bacteria in our gut that are for a co-operative experience of reality … who believe, for instance, in a human-Martian coalition in which the ‘space station’ of the human body is run by committee, and might agree that Martian colonists (bacteria) be bioengineered to help the human body function properly, or bottomline, to coexist in it without harming it?

Suppose there are radical, warlike ‘bad’ Martian bacteria who believe humans exercising free will ought to be eliminated, and only docile, subservient humans ought to be kept alive. Oh gosh … could this radical contingent be bioengineering deadlier bacteria, for instance? Or harmful viruses?

…..

Faith in God

So there I am, in the midst of this nightmare, and I am actually in the middle of a meditation … so it is like a vision. I remembered the prayer of Saint Frances, where Saint Francis says he wants to align with God …

Link: “Prayer of Saint Francis,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prayer_of_Saint_Francis ..

If we could just align our will with God, our purpose with God, in every moment … And I thought: If ever there was a moment, this is the moment to align my will with God, and let God take care of everything … you know? … And to take all my co-creative power, of which they say I have quite a bit … and which they say has been totally misused …

And how am I to know the truth of this situation? Perhaps I have no Soul! Perhaps I am wrong about everything! Perhaps everything I have ever said or judged or done … every decision I have ever made … has been against the Will of God. Who am I to know this? I am not God. Right?

But even if I am a faulty being, that has no reflection as God consciousness, nevertheless there is a role for me in Creation. And God will know this role. That is what I thought: God will know this role.

And this is what I told them: I will place my faith in God.

Their whole gig was: What do you want? What do you decide? … You know? Will you let these people go?

And that was the first thing that I did; I said: I will let these people go, that have been ill influenced by my decisions which were not in alignment with that of the Creator of All … of God … of Source. I will let them all go; let them no longer be enslaved.

That was the first thing. And that not only frees them, but it frees my karma … if a person with no Soul could be said to have no karma.

So then the second thing is: Whatever it is that I am … this faulty servo-mechanism; this ego that forgets the true nature of reality, that forgets that God is All … whatever that is that I am, I align that with God. And I ask Source … I ask God … to decide that for me, the disposition of that which I am.

The Healing Presence of Beings of Light

And so then there was quite a commotion. I was tired, so I just wanted to rest then. So, I reclined, to rest. And what I felt was Beings of Light all around me, making changes in my aura. And they said: Well, what can we do about all this? She has appealed to God …

And I also appeal to the laws of this Universe … not just the laws of this solar system, or the laws of this galaxy … But I said: Let the laws of this Universe be blended … like a flower blooms … with the laws of this particular small part of All that is.

The Beings of Light came in, and they said: Well, the best that we can do … since you are a ‘free-standing’ person … without a group … and you believe only in God, and in aligning with God’s will … we are going to have to put you on your own alternate world, all by yourself. There will be no more sentient beings there. It is just going to be you.

And they tried all these things like … The control beings would be saying something like: And you may not live till tomorrow … like that. And I said: God’s will! … It is completely up to God. And then they said: And you have no Soul; so you have no afterlife. So I said: God’s will! So what? [laughs]

And all this time … I am thinking in retrospect … really, they were talking to my ego, not to my Soul.

And so, I gave up on everything … all my preconceptions about how things are, and so forth. I was lying down, and Beings of Light were working on me, and explaining things to me.

From this I gather, that in this alternate world where I am right now … if you consider that just as a working mental filter … I am that which is Gaia, as well as that which seems to be this being. [i.e., Alice] All the history of Gaia is within these energetic bodies and this physical form that I am. And I am that transport system … as is each of us human beings. I am that transport system that allows all beings to go and experience God, and everything that is close to God, in the higher dimensions.

I am not so different from everyone else; but many people are just not there yet. They are not at that place where they want to experience the world of all possibilities: They are just not there.

So in the meantime, I am safely on an alternate world where there are no sentient beings with whom I need interact; and where there is direct communication with Source. (That solitary planet thing just lasted till the following morning’s church service!)

All’s well that ends well, in the nightmare department. [laughs] And then, until the next thing comes up … and the next Dark Night of the Soul is resolved, I am very happy to say that I am at a point where I can just be who I am, for a little while, and look forward, with great joy, for the next chance to jump into the Void.

Conclusion

Now I gather from this that these types of visions … which I have had a time or two in the past … are a very creative attempt, by the Hand of God, to allow me to integrate the deep emotions of the unconscious mind, and of the unconscious Collective Mind, with the outpouring created through the three heart centers, so that humankind … and so that I … can impulse onward, into the regenerative stage of this great Planet, and this great Galaxy, and this great Universe.

So the vividness … the depth of fear … the depths of not-knowingness that we encounter in what might be termed the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ are the springboards from which we can leap into deeper faith, and deeper co-creative ability, aligned with the Will of God. This is the Void of which many have spoken recently. (Mystic scholar Mirabai Starr … http://mirabaistarr.com/ … was also speaking on this topic in the May 2015 “Spring on Maui” retreat with RamDass and others.}

The Void is the Dark Night of the Soul, and letting go … surrender … to Divine guidance. That step into nothingness … that step into nothingness … is the beginning of our mastery. It is the tool with which we need to become familiar, in order to achieve this co-creative skill.

At first … the very first few times … it is very scary. But as time goes on, and as faith deepens, we can become adepts at this; I am certain of it. All humankind will do so.

So for now: Talk to you later. Love you lots.

Postscript 1: Sublime-ation of Darkness

I would just like to add a little postscript. In a situation like this, which, as I mentioned, has come up before, what seems like a terrible nightmare, that ends in a way that is unexpected, and like that … what seems like a terrible experience of subconscious energies … To me it seems like what is really taking place is an upwelling of Darkness … an upwelling of incomplete understanding of the way things are … from the Collective Subconscious of humankind … from the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World … which is always connected with my own lower chakras.

So what is happening is a clearing … a clearing, for me, of those energies … and I would say, for all those that wish to be involved in this transformative process … but not a clearing for those who do not wish to be.

So there is no element of control here, or of power over … but merely a conscious bringing-up of a bolus of subconscious, very Dark, deep, dense subconscious energies, which comes up the spinal column … Through the heart chakras it is transformed … and into the higher chakras. Through the indigo, way high up, is transformed into something totally different; not just for me, but for all those other beings who are participating in the process and who wish for transformation.

And so what appears to be a nightmare, is really a process of … they call it, in psychology, ‘sublimation’ … I call it ‘sublime-ation’ … the changing into the superconscious mind, of these things: Total transformation.

Postscript 2: Vocational Skills and Soul Skills

Stories by Alice: Job Hunting and Skill Sets. In the many years I used to work for a living, before my happy retirement, I undertook many, very varied jobs, until I reached a point where I started saving for retirement, and I went on staff in the University of California system, in the lowly position of Administrative Assistant.

But for all the prior years, I had had all different sorts of jobs. And the question, when you switch from one job to the next, is: How do you phrase your resume? How do you persuade your next employer that you have experience about something? And, from books about resume-writing, the thing that I learned is this …

The thing that I carry forward from one job to the next job is not so much the details or facts of the work that I do, but the set of skills that I acquire along the way. So every time I was job hunting, I would look at the skills I had acquired in past jobs, and then look at the notice for the new job I was interested in, to see if I had the skills that would be needed. If so, then I would submit a resume that included those skill sets which had been learned in each prior occupation. And it was a very successful technique, I would say. By thinking of skills rather than the factual content of the jobs I had been doing, I would have no trouble getting future jobs, even if they were not in my previous experience.

It is a wonderful thing to think of: the skills, rather than the factual content of what we are doing.

Dark Night of the Soul and the Skills of Letting Go, of Surrender, and of Faith. And how does that apply to the current nightmare scenario resolution? … the ‘sublime-ation’ process? Well, I am looking at last night, and what I see … the main thing that springs out … is the development of letting go, and surrender, and faith in the unknown … in a situation of Dark Night of the Soul, to have that faith that carries us through.

And last night was a chance to practice that. And how can we practice that, unless  what we experience contradicts the very fundament of our faith … the idea that we have a Soul … the idea that we live in a caring Universe.

When all those things are called in question, what still remains? That faith … that faith in God carries us through these experiences of death and near death, death of the ego, and so forth. Only that faith can do it; only that faith.

So last night was a chance to practice my faith skill.

Free Will and Divine Intervention. The other thing I learned, is that where the mental mind cannot resolve an issue, where it seems there is no way out, no way of creating agreement amongst peoples, that God always finds a way to allow free will to express itself. That God will always find a way. So that was the second thing: Not only that I can develop faith, but also that there will be a solution through God.

So in those terms … in terms of the developing skill set, and the ongoing possibilities … I think last night was a wonderful success … a trying situation, a difficult day, and the outcome was really wonderful.

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

Mental, Physical, and Emotional Control: The Technique of Engulfing with Love . by Alice B. Clagett *

Published on 30 December 2012; revised on 16 May 2018

  • PHYSICAL PAIN
  • CONTROLLING OUR MENTAL PROCESSES
  • TO OVERCOME ATTEMPTS AT MIND CONTROL
  • CONTROLLING UNWANTED EMOTIONS
  • ANGER OR FEAR
  • SEXUAL AROUSAL

Dear Ones,

Here is a technique to gain total mental, physical, and emotional control. It is the same technique for each of these, but I will go through it with specific examples, as I find practical application more helpful than abstract theory.

PHYSICAL PAIN

Let us start with the physical body, as that’s something many people are used to. Let us say you notice a specific bodily discomfort or maybe even a deep pain. Could be doctors have put a label on this discomfort or pain for you, but I state unequivocally to you that this label is not helpful. Quite the opposite. If you want to heal the physical body, take care not to imagine with your mind that this feeling has a label that will lead the body to this historically proven conclusion. Instead, feel the pain exactly as it is.

Imagine that the pain is a gift to you from God. Why not see what gift this is? Keep feeling this gift, this pain, as you also feel how your physical body and energy field feel around the pain. With an attitude of curious exploration, and of deep, loving gratitude, keep both the pain and the surrounding painlessness in your awareness. You will find the two energies become one generalized energy field, and the pain will go away.

Now, to the extent you hold a belief that the pain will not go away, it will not. So while you do this healing work on your body, place your awareness totally on your body, not on your mind. If thoughts do surface during your physical healing process, then you may momentarily use the following technique for controlling and calming the mind. It takes less than a second.

CONTROLLING OUR MENTAL PROCESSES

Many of us would like to be more aware of our thought processes … both surface thoughts and thoughts springing from the deep subconscious mind. We might practice a proven technique to calm the mind, such as …

  • the Zen technique of counting to 10 over and over again.
  • Or the yogic technique of long deep breathing.
  • Or the Indian technique of feeling the breath as it moves into and out of our nostrils.
  • Or by chanting a mantra, and so on.

We can’t always prevent thoughts from surfacing, though, so if you notice a thought, or train of thought, during your mind calming procedure, here’s what to do:

Be aware that a mental process is occurring. Do not blame yourself for this thought; do not feel a sense of failure or any other negative emotion; rather, be thankful that you noticed the thought. Classify for yourself what kind of thought it was. A memory? The beginning of a fantasy? A story about something? An analytical thought? A judgment?

So the point here is not to concentrate on the content of the thought, but simply to pigeonhole it. And then to return to your mind calming procedure.

TO OVERCOME ATTEMPTS AT MIND CONTROL

Historically, some spiritual adepts have been described as being able to control the minds of others. Rasputin, for instance, was known for this ability. And there is a lot of popular lore in this regard.

Before we continue further, and so as to know what we’re really dealing with, it’s good to note that the mental bodies extend far beyond the brain. In fact, almost all our other bodies … the physical, etheric, and emotional or astral bodies, and the body of light  … are permeated by the mental bodies, higher and lower, which extend beyond them; the exception being the body of light (also termed the ‘causal’ or ‘spiritual’ body), which permeates and extends beyond each of our other bodies.

What to do if you feel an attempt is being made to control your mind? There is one good technique that is quite similar to the physical pain healing technique described above. Let us say you notice a thought that seems foreign, ‘not your own.’ Now, at that moment, feel the actual energy of the thought … is it a throbbing in the frontal lobe? Does it feel like an energy whirling in or around the head, or at the level of the navel point, the sexual organs, or perhaps the rectum? Whatever the energy feels like, concentrate on that energy … and not on the thought itself.

Imagine that the energy your mind has labeled ‘not you’ is a gift to you from God. Why not find out what gift this is? Keep feeling this gift, this ‘not you’ energy, as you also feel how your energetic body feels around the ‘not you-ness.’ With an attitude of curious exploration, and of deep, loving gratitude, keep both the ‘not you’ energy and the surrounding energy of your mental body in your awareness. You will find the two energies become one generalized energy field, and the ‘not you’ energy will integrate with your aura.

CONTROLLING UNWANTED EMOTIONS

If we want to be fully developed, fully aware human beings, then control of the emotions is an important consideration. By this I don’t mean inhibition of unwanted emotions, which process always leads to trouble, and sometimes very deep trouble indeed. Rather I refer to integration of unwanted emotions into the emotional body as a whole. By this time you probably get the drift of what I’m about to say.

ANGER OR FEAR

In a nutshell: Feel the most obvious physical sensation that your mind is labeling ‘anger’ or ‘fear.’ Imagine that this unwanted emotion is a gift to you from God.

Why not find out what gift this is? Keep feeling this gift, this physical sensation, as you also feel how your physical body and energy field feel around the physical sensation. With an attitude of curious exploration, and of deep, loving gratitude, keep both the physical sensation and the surrounding energy in your awareness. You will find the two energies become one generalized energy field, and the physical sensation will integrate with your aura.

Then repeat the procedure with any other physical sensations related to the unwanted emotion.

SEXUAL AROUSAL

Things being as they are in Western culture, quite a few people are concerned to minimize the chance of feeling their sexuality at moments that are socially unacceptable … maybe with regard to the wrong person, or at the wrong time, for instance. Since sexuality is an inescapable part of our makeup, and always a force to contend with, and to creatively redirect, as necessary, it’s good to know that the above technique can be used to diffuse sexual arousal. To wit:

  • Feel the most obvious physical sensation associated with the concept your mind labels ‘sexual arousal.’
  • Imagine that this unwanted physical sensation is a gift to you from God. Why not find out what gift this is?
  • Keep feeling this gift, this physical sensation, as you also feel how your energy field feels around the sexual energy. With an attitude of curious exploration, and of deep, loving gratitude, keep both the physical sensation and the surrounding energy in your awareness — You will find the two energies become one generalized energy field, and the physical sensation will integrate with your aura.

One more thing about sexual arousal … the persistence of such a feeling has a lot to do with thoughts, especially repetitive thoughts, which precede the sensation of arousal and persist throughout the experience. When the thoughts stop, the feeling soon stops as well. So, if you notice mental involvement during the diffusing process, then you may wish to momentarily use the previously mentioned technique for controlling and calming the mind, which takes less than a second.

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