Water Your Garden with Bath Water? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says …

Dear Ones,

Water prices are so high here in Los Angeles these days the wild surmise goes round that the LA Department of Water and Power has been purchased by the mob to grow marijuana in the sewage treatment facilities, and that we homeowners are footing the tab! What with the COVID lockdown, there are no bar tabs to be footed today. Wilder urban legends have gone the rounds, over the years. Who can say?

Until the truth be laid bare, water in LA is costing up to $600 a month for a person with a backyard lawn and a modest home in the ‘burbs. How are we to afford to water even a container vegetable garden when water prices are so high? Here is what I came up with; it is cost effective, offers a little daily exercise, and feels just right for sustainable living …

I thought if I could find a very good stopper for my bathtub, and tough, flat-bottom buckets such as are used to feed horses in horse stalls, then I could scoop up the water in the tub after a shower and use it to water the vegetable garden.

I needed a water-tight drain stopper for the bathtub, and that was hard to come by. I found that, because of the age of my house, the tub drain I needed was not a standard size sold in the local hardware stores. Online I found 3 sizes of drain stoppers, and none of them fit the bathtub drain.

Finally I found at Amazon … http://www.amazon.com … a multi size bathtub stopper (1-1/8 inch to 1-7/8 inch). The brand was Silyconyc, it came in a two pack, and I found it offered a firm seal at the largest size graduation. If you cannot readily get a snug drain stopper for your bathtub, then the multi size drain stopper may work for you as well.

The next thing was to find durable buckets that would conform to the flat bottom of the tub. That was a little easier, as feed stores and Amazon sell ‘flat back’ plastic feed buckets with strong metal handles. I picked two buckets, each with two-gallon capacity, as very large buckets full of water would be too much for me to carry.

It turned out the buckets I picked were perfect for the job. One side was flat, so that the bucket would lie flat when the handle was attached to the wall of a horse stall. That flat side, laid against the bottom of the tub, allowed me to scoop up almost all the water in the tub.

I placed the partly full buckets on an old towel next to the tub just before taking the water outside, so that water would not drip through the house. This has proven a no muss, no fuss way to water my container garden using shower water.

In addition, I keep a regular bucket in my kitchen sink for dishwashing and daily use that water to keep up those outdoor plants that are not able to survive with the amount of landscape water allowed Los Angeles homeowners by the LA Department of Water and Power.

Hope these tips help green the gardens of LA!

In love, light and joy,

Coronavirus: Urgent Plea to U.S. Mayors and Governors to Establish Stores of Staples in Case of Shortage . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 March 2020; updated on 8 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I was in my local Walmart a few days ago and noticed they were short of staples such as rice and dry noodles, and out of bags of beans. I feel each family must buy what staples we can, as soon as we are able, given what is available in the stores. I feel we might wish to store up enough for 3-4 months for our family, in case stores run short of supplies.

Bottled water is also important to have on hand; second best would be water filters such as Brita or the like. I also suggest water disinfectant in whatever form can be purchased, in the unlikely case urban water supplies should be compromised.

I ask that United States mayors and governors purchase for their towns and states a supply of staples … grains such as wheat, corn, millet, oats, beans, and rice … and also powdered milk for mothers with young children … to provide in case of urgent need should a food shortage develop for the next three of four months.

Maybe our mayors and governors can obtain bulk staples through farmers’ cooperatives in their own states. if not there, it maybe that farmers’ cooperatives in the Midwestern United States will have available the needed staples (at granaries, for instance).

I wonder if Red Cross … phone 800-733-2767 … or the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust … phone 202-720-4221 … might offer foodstuffs for short-term food crises due to coronavirus here in America?

Link: “Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust,” by United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service … https://www.fas.usda.gov/programs/bill-emerson-humanitarian-trust … COMMENT: I note this Trust is in cash rather than commodities, and aimed at famine relief in non-United States countries.

If bulk staples can be obtained by government officials, that will help stave off famine in the communities they serve.

There is a possibility of lockdowns on public transportation as cities begin to experience the Coronavirus epidemic; this must be taken into consideration when planning for distribution of bulk staples to the underserved in our local communities. In other words, families who have no other means of picking up government foodstuffs than public transportation might be left to die at home.

I am sorry to be so specific in this regard, but I feel many people are unused to thinking in survival terms, and unable to visualize what may transpire if our mayors and governors are unable to provide for the needs of the underserved in case of famine.

As well, our local government staffs … the folks who would work on food distribution programs … might be depleted, and the government offices themselves might be shut down as the coronavirus passes through the various United States communities.

Thus I feel the time to act, with foresight, is now. That time is upon us.

How Much Food and Water Should We Buy to Wait Out the Coronavirus? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 3 March 2020

Dear Ones,

I took a look at the World Health Organization daily situation reports for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) today …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” bky World Health Organization (WHO) … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I see there is a decline in confirmed cases of the virus in the day prior to 2 March 2020 for Hubei, China. According to WHO, the virus broke out there on 31 December 2020. We have 42 WHO reports from 20 January 2020 through 2 March 2020.

Thus we have 20 unreported days and 42 days reported on by WHO, since the outbreak in Hubei. That is a total of 62 days.

If the decline in confirmed cases in Hubei continues in the days to come, then the people of that city will have seen the worst of the outbreak last week. Should this be so, then we can anticipate the epidemic will tail off in Hubei over an equal period of time, which is to say, an additional 62 days.

Thus, in this reasonable scenario, the outbreak will have lasted 4 months in Hubei. Taking that as a touchstone for the duration of the epidemic in other countries, I suggest that we lay in a 4-month supply of food and water supplies (or means of disinfecting water, in case the local water supply might be compromised).

That will allow us to avoid interacting with restaurant and supermarket personnel and customers who might be infected. As well, it will suffice in case food supplies become scarce (as have face masks globally).

Food needs can be supplied at reasonable cost through purchasing big sacks of rice and of beans, which I feel ought to be kept from rodents by being placed in durable plastic storage bins.

The food can be purchased at Walmart or Smart and Final Iris. It is difficult to find durable plastic storage bins that fasten securely enough to deter rodents; Walmart or Target might have these. Of course, sturdier storage, such as metal containers with metal lids, would be better, but these may be available only in rural areas.

For more on the topic of survival see …

P.S. It might be good, as well, to purchase a supply of vitamin C, which might help bolster the immune system. My preference is buffered vitamin C powder, which I find to be more agreeable to my gastrointestinal tract. If that is not available (as with the face masks) then whatever may be had must suffice.

Dried Black Mustard . a story by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 15 November 2019; published on 23 November 2019

Dear Ones,

Here is a story about surviving in the wilderness. The location is Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve, Simi Hills, California.

There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have a story for you about survival in the wilderness, especially in a place where there are dried black mustard plants.

One time long ago I went for a hike with some long-term hiking buddies of mine in the tall mountains. It was getting on towards winter. It was kind of cold where we ended up, and the altitude was pretty high. I was really tired, because it had been a long hike. It was barren, and I did not have the right kind of clothes to keep warm from the chill wind that was blowing.

The other people were sitting and talking, and they did not pay much attention to it; but I was cold and shivering. And I saw dried black mustard plants, very close to these ones here …

… just like that. And I thought: Well, anything is better than nothing. I will just go and sit right in the midst of those dried black mustard reeds. So I found a little opening that maybe a few rabbits had sat in, a little like that …

… and I went and sat there. The wind was blowing pretty briskly. But what I found was that I was warm all of a sudden, because so many black mustard stems apparently cut the wind hither and thither, until almost no wind whatsoever reached me.

Now you know what to do when there is no shelter at all in a stiff wind, except for dried black mustard plants.

Homed Who Live Next to Homeless Encampments in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 September 2019

Dear Ones,

It seems to me there is concern for personal safety among homeowners and their families who live next to homeless encampments in Los Angeles. On mulling over this issue, I came to understand the depth of despair of fathers and husbands who have invested their life savings in providing homes for their families, and whose wives and children can no longer safely leave home at night, because of homeless encampments on their sidewalks or in treed or grassy areas nearby.

It occurred to me that passive defense systems might offer an alternative to taking the law into one’s own hands on behalf of family safety. Along these lines, I thought homeowners might consider installing floodlights that illuminate terrain between them and the homeless encampments at night, so that their families could feel safe to walk out of their houses. I also wonder if high fences around homeowners’ yards might help.

Housing codes regarding the height of property fences can cause trouble with safety in these times, as those who wrote the codes could not have foreseen the current difficulty. Maybe property fencing codes could be got round by using temporary construction fencing in the yard? Maybe it might be sensible to go ahead and put up high fences around the home, with the agreement of one’s neighbors, since getting the codes changed may take some time.

In addition, I thought, it might be possible to install perimeter electronic alarms, that would provide a warning if the yard is trespassed on? Maybe others will come up with passive defense systems for homed families as well.

I know it is not fair to think about putting walls up and protecting our homes. It’s not something we have ever had to do before. Why should we have to do it now? Why should we go to the expense? Why does not the City of Los Angeles just fix the problem? It seems to me that is what folks are wondering, and I have been wondering that too.

Finally it came to me that the City of Los Angeles may not have a solution for us. They may not have the staff, the financial resources, or the flexible problem-solving ability to deal with the question. I say that because the problem has been before LA for 10 years now, and the City has not come up with a solution.

It seems to me that we Los Angeles homeowners must come up with our own solutions. But what will those solutions be? Some feel angry; they feel like hurting the homeless. Others feel afraid; again and again, they ask the Los Angeles Police Department to remove the homeless from their block.

I myself feel that we ought to do my best to find physical deterrents, such as high fences, perimeter alarm systems, and camera surveillance systems to protect our homes from the unhomed, and from roaming felon gangs.

When our homes are as protected as possible, we can feel safe to continue to work with our communities towards good solutions.

I recently went to a meeting of the West Hills Neighborhood Council Committee on Homelessness. It seemed to me they work with the office of the Mayor in a political way. The political approach involves jockeying with the powers that be for application of the City’s very limited financial resources to a problem for which we are lobbying, in our own interests.

Politicking takes time. More than 10 years … that is patently clear. I feel we need to find other grassroots ways to solve this problem.

Right now, I am thinking we could approach West Hills churches, civic groups, clubs, and businesses we belong to or patronize, and ask them what they can do to help. Could be we the people can together find a solution to the problem of West Hills homelessness … a solution that so far has eluded City Hall.

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

SOUNDTRACK

 

TRANSCRIPTION OF THE SOUNDTRACK

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

Changing Standard of Living in America, and Return to Sustainable Living

I was working late tonight, and I listened in on a person who was not feeling very well. He said he had bone cancer, and his concern was that he was not living up to his own expectations with regard to a livelihood.

A lot of people are in that situation right now, because America is turning from a very vibrantly growing economy … which had been agrarian, and then changed to a more industrial and factory and information technology work … all different kinds of work indoors … and with a raised level of living, including everybody moving into their own homes … often single-family … people moving into homes with each generation in a separate home … and lots of electronic equipment, and other kinds of good things that people got, that were a sign to them that we had made progress as a nation.

We are changing now. America is changing. It is coming on a different sort of time now, with a lowering of the general living standard, and a return to hands-on work. Sustainable, subsistence living and the pioneer spirit will do us well, in these days.

And so the feeling that this person has … this person that was feeling physically ill … feeling aches in the body, for instance … is a feeling that many people have today, here in America: That things are not going that well; that things are going downhill.

Things are changing; that is the truth. And they are changing all over America. It is not a specific situation for any one of us; all of us are enduring this change.

Bone Aches and the Metaphor ‘I Can’t Bear It!’

Getting more into the specifics of this particular person, as it turned out, I spoke with his body cells. He said his bones ached. He said he had a diagnosis of bone cancer. I spoke with his body cells, and asked them how they were doing.

What they told me was (in a sad, resigned voice): I can’t bear it!

Apparently this is a saying … a metaphor … that the person in question had been saying to them … or to himself … subconsciously, for a long time. And the bone cells, which bear the weight of the body, took it personally. So they were feeling pretty sick; they were feeling pretty sad … because, as you may know, the body cells exist on Joy .. not on upset and despair and anger, and all those other negative emotions. They exist, and feel healthy, because they feel Joy and love and Light and peace.

For the Healer: Devising and Placing a Positive Metaphor in the Injured Body Cells

As healers, what we have to do, when we come across these metaphors that create physical illness … these subconscious malspeak programs that create illnesses … is to come up with something that turns it around in the other direction … something that uses a similar metaphor, but a positive metaphor. I came up with this one …

I spoke directly to the body cells of the other person, and I said (in a lilting, joyful tone of voice): I bear up perfectly well! I bear up perfectly well!

They were very excited about it; they were joyful about it. They started to say that too: I bear up perfectly well!

And I said: That’s right! You do!

Then I spoke with the person involved, because the person also needs to change the jingle (or you might say, the ‘jingo jingle’ that makes war on the body), the motto, the subconscious malspeak, into what you might call ‘goodspeak’.

So I asked him … since his situation was acute … with every breath, to say: I bear up perfectly well!

And he agreed to write it down. Maybe he will do it!

On Outfoxing the Prognostic Mind-Set of Western Medical Practitioners

The trouble, in this kind of situation, is that Western medicine quite frequently makes a diagnosis and expects a certain result. It is not quick to recognize that the situation has changed.

And yet, amongst patients, the situation changes dramatically, all the time.

It is up to a patient to know when he is getting better; and not to pay so much attention to what the doctors say about it, until they finally realize that this is true.

In this context of a ‘set in concrete’ diagnosis and prognosis (‘prognosis’ is the expected outcome) … it is possible that the attitude of a doctor or a nurse can negatively influence the outcome for a patient, even if the patient is starting to get better.

If, in his heart, the patient feels that this is happening, he needs to place himself in an environment where people are supportive of spontaneous healing. He can still take advantage of all the wonderful things that Western medicine has to offer, but he can absent himself from the malspeak of people in the Western medical profession who are slow to realize that spontaneous healing is taking place. You understand what I mean? …

All right; you all take care. Love you lots. Good luck with spontaneous healings worldwide. I hope it happens now … right this very moment, now!

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Something happened to me yesterday, to do with the predator/prey energy threads in the world, that helped, temporarily, to eliminate those from my personal noosphere. It came round to a lot of threats … death threats … that seemed to be coming from other people elsewhere.

I explained to my Martians in my lower intestine that there was a possibility that I would be injured … that their ‘space station’ would be killed by these other people … And asked if they could get the word out, to the Martians in the large colons of these other people, to stop with that kind of gut brain banter.

All of a sudden, I heard messages going out from the Martians in my gut brain to all of these other people; not to the people themselves, but to the Martians in their gut brains. And suddenly the noosphere cleared up quite a bit.

So that is a temporary measure that can be implemented through our alliance with the Martian bacterial colonists of our colons.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have a topic to discuss that I have been putting off … Please excuse me. It has to do with the likelihood of a Carrington effect, and the short-term consequences resulting from that, due to the fact that, here in the United States, we are very technologically oriented and electronics oriented.

As you may know, in 2012 Pete Riley of Predictive Science, San Diego, CA, calculated the probability of a Carrington event in the next 10 years at approximately 12%; here is the paper …

Link: “On the probability of occurrence of extreme space weather events,” by Pete Riley, in “Space Weather,” received 16 September 2011; revised 18 November 2011; accepted 22 December 2011; published 23 February 2012;  Vol. 10, S02012, doi:10.1029/2011SW000734 … https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2011SW000734 … 2012 … http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/2011SW000734/pdf ..

Carrington Effect and Transportation Worldwide

I would like to put forth the notion that a Carrington Effect, in addition to the damage that it might do to the power grids … making gasoline unavailable here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, for weeks, months, or possibly, years … might also instantaneously halt transportation here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, because of the electronics in the engines and in the systems of cars now.

My question is: Would a Carrington effect most likely destroy sensitive electrical and electronic mechanisms in cars … such as ignition coils, generators, mechanical distributors, and starting motors … making it no longer possible for transportation to take place?

So this is a Call to Action regarding mitigation of that possibility. What can we do, to prepare ourselves for lack of transportation for, say, a week or two weeks, or maybe an extended length of time?

Effect on People Who Are Homebound and on Oxygen

For instance, with lack of transportation, one of the things that might happen is that people who are homebound and on oxygen are no longer able to obtain oxygen. They need to talk over this possibility with their healthcare providers, and try to keep on hand additional, emergency containers of oxygen.

I know this is possible because, for instance, in snowbound areas, as I recall, Medicare will provide those kinds of large containers, full of oxygen, in case the electricity goes down. I would like to suggest that all people who are on oxygen have those containers on hand, because of the likelihood of the Carrington Effect affecting transportation, and making it difficult or impossible for replacement oxygen canisters to be delivered to homes for some length of time.

Advantage of Owning an Older Car with Less Susceptible Electrical and Electronic Parts … and a Bicycle or Foot-Powered Scooter

If you are able, or have the money, or if you are thinking of trading to a new car, may I suggest the type of car that has no electronics in it … that very basic car? I think that is a good plan for the future.

Possibly even more helpful would be to have on hand a bicycle with a carrying basket on the front or back, or a foot-powered scooter on the handlebars of which shopping bags can be suspended.

Public Water Supply May Fail 

In addition, in terms of water supply, my understanding is that there is a powerhouse that pushes the water from the storage area to the various homes somehow. I do not know how this takes place, but if it is true, and if the power goes out because of the Carrington Effect, then we will have no water. For instance, in towns where water is gravity-fed from a water tower, it must be that electricity is needed to pump the water up into the tower. Without electricity, such a water supply system would fail, would it not? So, everyone has to look into alternatives of water supply, in the event of a Carrington Effect.

Thoughts on Storing and Cooking Food 

Of course, there is an issue of storing food, and of cooking the food. I suggest keeping on hand small cans of food that are already hydrated … that do not need extra water … and that have protein content in them. This is because, if the Carrington Effect takes place, there will be no refrigerators to keep the food in large containers refrigerated, and it will spoil. So, individual, or family-sized containers of canned food are the best bet … Say, beans in cans. Maybe instant rice, or oats that are ‘quick oats’ would be possibilities, if a fire source can be provided. All this I have written up in this blog …

Link: “Pioneer Skills: Planning for Tough Times Ahead,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 19 September 2017; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7H3 ..

… so you can look it up there as well. If we were suddenly reduced to pioneer circumstances, then you would want to have on hand, in your house, at least the least expensive ways of sustaining life until the power grids and transportation are restored.

What If Parents Are Stranded at Their Workplace, and Children at Their Schools, as a Result of a Midday Strike of the Carrington Effect? 

Also as a result of possible transportation take-down, if the strike of the Carrington Effect were to take place, say, midday, there would be an issue of how families might be reunited, so that they would be better capable of surviving, during the interval before power is restored.

How will parents get home, if their job takes them far from their home? How will children get home from school? Is there a plan in place, to help with that?

Suppose they cannot get home? Then, is there a plan for survival at the place where the parents work?

Do people who work far from home keep a comfortable, sturdy pair of walking shoes at work, in case they must walk home?

Is there a plan for survival at the school where the children are?

If part of the family arrives home … say, the children … and the parents cannot, then do the children know what to do, so as to protect themselves and sustain themselves, until the family is reunited?

Highrises May Be Rendered Uninhabitable. I note also, in this regard, that people who live or work in highrises, or in buildings with windows that will not open, might find these buildings unusable, after a Carrington Effect, for lack of ventilation and inoperability of HVAC. (Or, occupants might keep on hand tools for cutting holes in the windows, for ventilation.)

Shall We Establish Community Granaries? 

Here is something else: Could each community provide something along the lines of the Babylonian Granaries (grain storage facilities)? In Jewish times as well, the person in charge of a group of people would have a grain store, just in case of times of difficulty such as a Carrington Effect would cause.

Image: “A Wheat Receipt Issued by Two Officials of the Granary at Babylon (Old Cairo) – Egyptian National Library Inv. No. 126.87 AH / 706 CE” … https://www.islamic-awareness.org/history/islam/papyri/enlp10 ..

Would there be a place … say, a deserted supermarket … where supplies could be kept and doled out, in the way that rations were doled out during World War II?

This is something that each community could decide upon, and provide for on its own … Powdered milk for mothers with children, for instance. And maybe grain stores … cornmeal, flour, and the other things that I have suggested, such as rice and beans, could be on hand and could be given out, in the way that these supplies are given out in developing countries during catastrophic natural disasters.

On Planning to Repurpose Our Military Might to the Home Front in the Event of a Natural Disaster Such as a Carrington Event

We need to look to the home front right now, I feel.  It would be good to draw back our troops, in an organized way, as conflicts begin to cease, worldwide … considering, also the difficulty of getting our men and armaments home in the event of global power grid difficulties … and instead, develop a plan, on the home front, for caring for our communities during a crisis … maybe, extended times of crisis, the Carrington Effect being only one such.

That is my thought for today. I wish you all the very best.

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

Human Habitation of Mars: Effect on the Ascension Process . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 22 May 2018

  • HUMAN HABITATION OF MARS: EFFECT ON THE ASCENSION PROCESS
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

HUMAN HABITATION OF MARS: EFFECT ON THE ASCENSION PROCESS

I recently got a subscription to “National Geographic” (1) that also gives me online articles. Luckily so. Today’s email had a link to this article …

Link: “Year of the Bird: These Are the Dinosaurs That Didn’t Die,” by Victoria Jaggard, photographs by Robert Clark, National Geographic … https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/05/dinosaurs-survivors-birds-fossils/?utm_source=ngp&utm_medium=crm-email&utm_content=wildscience_20180521&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_rd=%3C#itlscript%3E${CONTACTS_LIST.RIID_?c}%3C/#itlscript%3E&cmpid=org=ngp::mc=crm-email::src=ngp::cmp=editorial::add=wildscience_20180521::urid=%3C#itlscript%3E${CONTACTS_LIST.RIID_?c}%3C/#itlscript%3E ..

Also linked to in the email was this National Geographic article …

Link: “Meet the Crew Preparing for Human Life on Mars,” by Nadia Drake, photographs by Cassandra Kios, published 4 May 2018, National Geographic …   https://www.nationalgeographic.com/photography/proof/2018/05/mars-on-earth-nasa-training/?utm_source=ngp&utm_medium=crm-email&utm_content=wildscience_20180521&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_rd=%3C#itlscript%3E${CONTACTS_LIST.RIID_?c}%3C/#itlscript%3E&cmpid=org=ngp::mc=crm-email::src=ngp::cmp=editorial::add=wildscience_20180521::urid=%3C#itlscript%3E${CONTACTS_LIST.RIID_?c}%3C/#itlscript%3E ..

The juxtaposition could not have been more apt, although most likely subconscious.

As you may know (search my blog categories:  Mars – Martians  … and …  Bacteria ) life on Earth originated on Mars. About 4 billion years ago, meteorites from Mars brought early, intelligent, bacterial life to Earth. Over the aeons, this intelligent life has morphed to a more gentle, less warlike life form, here on Earth. The superb genetic engineering abilities of this, the Elder Race, have resulted in the many larger life forms now on Earth, many of which act as protective biohabitats or Earth colonies for intelligent Martian bacterial life forms housed in their guts.

Those bacteria still on Mars, existing as they do as solo survivors in extreme planetary conditions, are still of the more primitive, warlike mentality.

As you may know from your reading of my earlier work, there are 10 times more bacterial life forms than human cellular life forms in the human colon. Thus when humans voyage to Mars, they will bring with them the gentler variety of Earthly bacteria.

I am clear that the bacteria of Earth want to re-establish contact with the bacteria of their home world. But what will that re-establishment of contact mean, both on Earth and on Mars? Are the bacteria of Earth aware of how different they now are from the bacteria of Mars, their home world? Or will this be a hard and bitter lesson won?

If human life is established on Mars, then there will be interbreeding of Earth bacteria with the more warlike Martian ancestral bacteria. Thus, those human space colonists that return to Earth will bring back more warlike bacteria.

As discussed in a prior blog, these bacteria’s mind fields and emotions cause repercussions in the unconscious thought cloud of the world by adding emphasis to human autonomic nervous system thought forms … the sort of thoughts associated with the reptilian brain … to do with survival, war, fear of death, grounding, territorial aggression, sexual aggression, the instinct to have sex, creativity, the will to do things in the world, world domination, and so on. They do this by adding a sort of drumbeat backdrop … an added emotional drive … to the subconscious thoughts expressed through our lower 3 chakras, which are located in the general area of the colon. This is sometimes referred to as the gut brain.

Intuitively I feel that the result here on Earth will be more energy threads of warlike tendencies, and also of territorial and sexual aggression, as expressed through our social interactions here on Earth.

On Mars, the opposite will take place amongst the ancient bacterial peoples there: They will become less warlike, less territorially and sexually aggressive.

This translates into a better time on Mars, and a more difficult time on Earth, as the unfoldment of the Ascension process continues. In more fearful timelines, it will result in Apocalyptic scenarios both on Mars and on Earth.

Among those whose hearts and minds are set upon the feelings of faith, hope, and charity towards other beings, the timelines will result in an improvement or upliftment of the energies of the Solar System as a whole, as the martial astral airs of Mars begin to clear.

We who feel faith and hope and charity, in alignment with the Heart and Mind and Will of God, can help merge the Apocalyptic timelines with the timelines of New Life on New Earth.

As our Solar System is uplifted, so will its butterfly effect be felt throughout this Universe.

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

On Planning with Family for a Natural Disaster . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 September 2017

  • WHAT IF FAMILY MEMBERS ARE DISPERSED WHEN A NATURAL DISASTER HAPPENS?
  • ON TAKING ADVANTAGE NOW OF THE SURVIVAL KNOWLEDGE OF OUR ELDERS
  • DISASTER PREPAREDNESS ON A MODEST BUDGET
  • HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS

Dear Ones,

THE RED CROSS DISASTER PLAN WEB PAGE: PLANNING WITH FAMILY

On the Red Cross Disaster Plan web page, I particularly like the part about family members getting together and making a plan …

Link: “How to Prepare for Emergencies,” by the Red Cross … http://www.redcross.org/get-help/how-to-prepare-for-emergencies ..

For instance, who will be responsible for what, if the family is all together at the time of the disaster?

WHAT IF FAMILY MEMBERS ARE DISPERSED WHEN A NATURAL DISASTER HAPPENS?

If the family is dispersed at the time of the disaster, are plans in place for each member to make it on their own till disaster crews are able to help out?

Does each family member … especially young children who might be at school … but also older children who might be away at college, or working at a distance … know what to do? Is there a plan for the family getting back together in the event communications and transportation are down, or will the family members decide to stay wherever they are till services are up and running again?

These are things that may be decided in advance. And not deciding them in advance might have unfortunate consequences. For instance, what if communications and transportation were down for a month, and a father set off to find his daughter in college in a different state? What if the daughter set off at the same time to return to the family home? Because of the time foot or horse travel takes, their paths might never cross. This kind of uncertainty and heartbreak can be easily avoided through a family disaster planning meeting.

ON TAKING ADVANTAGE NOW OF THE SURVIVAL KNOWLEDGE OF OUR ELDERS

Also, might not younger family members benefit from the advice of older family members, who might have grown up in a farming community, and might have greater hands on knowledge about what is needed to get by without Walmart or Vons, and so on?

Now, before the fact, is a good time to ask elders’ advice about this kind of thing, I feel.

DISASTER PREPAREDNESS ON A MODEST BUDGET

No matter how modest one’s budget, survival needs for a week or a month can be met with careful planning beforehand. Here is the Red Cross list:

Link: “Survival Kit Supplies,” by the Red Cross … http://www.redcross.org/get-help/prepare-for-emergencies/be-red-cross-ready/get-a-kit ..

Red Cross also has a web page with links to instructions for specific types of disasters. These have some nice features. On the Hurricane preparation page, for instance, I saw info on what they feel must be done, then info about what to do next, and also what to do about pets and livestock.

Here is the general link to various types of disasters (I note that, while there are links to instructions for many types of disasters, there is no link for Geostorms) …

Link: “Types of Emergencies,” by the Red Cross … http://www.redcross.org/get-help/how-to-prepare-for-emergencies/types-of-emergencies ..

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS

And here is the link to hurricane preparedness …

Link: “Hurricane Safety: How to Keep Your Home and Family Safe During a Hurricane or Typhoon,” by the Red Cross … http://www.redcross.org/get-help/how-to-prepare-for-emergencies/types-of-emergencies/hurricane#Before ..

Dear Ones,

An historic stone fountain once located near Buckhorn Summit on Route 299 in California. In 2015 it was moved to the Moon Lee rest area near Douglas City, California …

The fountain features a sink fed by a local spring, where water can be gathered for a cooler or a car radiator. On the lower left is a step for children to clamber up, so they can drink from the faucet. On the lower right is a stone bowl that can be filled so that a dog or horse can have a drink of water.

Ingenious, long lasting, and very practical, I feel. I hope this will be inspiration for the building of many more such fountains.

Here is what the above sign on the fountain says …

“Stone fountains were built in the 1930s as part of a highway beautification program that also developed roadside picnic facilities, public campgrounds, vista points, and rock walls.

“This fountain originally sat on the west side of Buckhorn Summit on State Route 299 in Shasta County. It was gravity-fed from a spring above the highway providing radiator and drinking water to travelers. This simple design includes a step on one side to allow children to reach the drinking spout while the other side has a built-in basin so dogs can drink.”

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Introduction

Here I am, in the land of the sacred juniper tree, which I love. I love the smell of it, and I love sitting amongst the juniper trees … just beautiful! And there are some other evergreens here as well. I wonder if this is a pinyon pine? [Shows pinyon pine in video.] Don’t laugh! I’m not sure. [laughs]

Beginning of Topic: How Cactus Waits Out the Winter

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

I am sitting here in a beautiful juniper forest … at a pretty high elevation. The first snows have already come, and melted. And here I am looking at the cactus plants. I guess they are in a hibernating, winter state … kind of cool. Before they were very bright purple, and full of water. Now they are dried up, and dormant, and they are just waiting out the winter, I think. I will show you …

This is the cactus plant … a very small one … at my feet here. It Just looks dried up, and like it is withdrawing its prana, its life force, and just getting ready for the long, hard winter. And it looks to me like it is ready to survive. It has its spines ready, to prevent it from being eaten by the deer and the elk, and whatever else is here …

Image: “Colorado Country Scenes 3,” by Alice B. Clagett, 14 November 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0

It has been here for a long time, and it is determined to stay, and to flourish … which is a pretty cool attribute, I think. It is a good attribute for us right now, because the clearing of humankind is starting in earnest. Things are a little bit tough. But they are no tougher than what we can handle, that is for sure … just like this little cactus can handle the oncoming winter.

White Male Ruling Elite Energies of the 1950s and 1960s in America

I just thought I would talk, a minute, about some energies that are leaving Earth right now, and about how I experienced those energies in my childhood, amongst the people around my geographic area of Southern Maryland.

I think, in the 1950s and 1960s, in the United States, there was a certain energy … the kind of energy that has to do with power and status and the ruling class, and people that are perceived to be disempowered … like children, and women, and people of lower socioeconomic status. Basically, what that leaves is what has been much talked about, in the history books, as the white male ruling elite.

I know you have heard of this. It applies cross-culturally, to many groups, because there will be a ruling elite that is well defined, in the subconscious minds of the people of every culture. This is just one example of many ruling elites, you see?

The rules that young white men learned in those days … in the 1950s and 1960s … was something to the effect that, yes, they had the instinct to fight and to kill and to rape … and, yes, that it was all right to do that, as long as they stuck to people who were disempowered. The rationale behind that was, first, that they had this urge, and that sometimes they needed to express this urge to kill; and secondly, practically speaking, that society did not really care that much about the disempowered … the children, the women, and the people of lower socioeconomic status, you see?

Society did not care enough … that was the way the story went … to prosecute the ruling elite for murder and rape. And so, it was a very practical way of reconstruing the Old Testament commandment: Thou shalt not kill

What it was, was, pragmatically speaking: Thou shalt not kill another white, male person of the ruling elite.

The Ballad of William Zantzinger and Hattie Carroll by Bob Dylan

And aside from that, there were hushed stories, in my childhood, of men who did just what we are talking about … Did I ever get the story of William Zantzinger and Hattie Carroll mixed up, in the video. Afterwards, I did some research about it …

I will retell the story as well as I may below, according to what I learned in the link above …

A  Maryland tobacco farmer, his wife, and some friends were on their way to Baltimore for a white-tie affair. Baltimore is fairly close to my very small home town, which is probably why I learned about the incident as a small child. Maybe they were at cards, and maybe they had had a little too much liquor. There was an African American woman cleaning tables at the restaurant. And for no reason, the farmer caned the woman to death.

That incident could be viewed in light of that reconstrued Ten Commandments rule I just talked about. And then Bob Dylan wrote a song about that …

How the American Notion of Human Rights Has Changed with Time

So basically, as a child in the 1950s and 1960s, the thing that I learned is that the white male elite could do just about what they wanted. And that is a pretty scary thing for a child to learn, do you not think?

As I was getting older, when I reached adulthood, it started filtering in … probably through the Supreme Court … a notion that women and children and people who had less money, had rights, you know? … had rights, for instance, to equal pay for women, and for protection and childcare services for women … and that poor people had the right to representation in Court, and like that.

Although the system is not perfect, today, after all these years the system has changed some. And so, in the large cities, amongst educated people, you will find revised notions that, in fact, the disempowered do have rights, you see.

And this is much closer to the ideal of Christ consciousness than the thing that I was dealing with, in my very early childhood in the 1950s. It is much more in tune with universal love and Christ consciousness.

On Remaining in Christ Consciousness When Others Have Different Values

Having been in the country all summer long, the thing that I found out is, that there are, especially amongst the people my age and older, a number of men who, in their childhood education, learned … in the school of hard knocks, or through their parents … that, in fact, they did have these rights to kill the disempowered; and that still hold by them, you see?

My own attitude towards all that has always been one of recoiling, in shock and horror and dismay, and just objecting to that, you see? This energy stream is very difficult for me to deal with.

The Christ consciousness ideal is not to judge, not to blame, and not to act in a cause-and-effect way against people whose values are different from our own. You see? [sighs]

Just lately I was listening, on the clair plane, to an astral story about another attempted murder. This one was (putatively) in a Walmart parking lot at 2 a.m. I heard the story, on the astral plane, just a couple of days ago.

And as usual, I jumped on the Oh, please don’t! Charley horse thing that I do, But another woman chimed in, on the astral plane, and she was much more with it than I was. The way she spoke was just full of love and kindness and sweetness … in a way so accepting, so sweet, so kind towards this person, that, in fact, everything changed because of the way that she behaved.

And that taught me a very good lesson about the lifting and clearing of energies, and the transforming of energies: It is simply to understand that other people’s points of view are diametrically opposed to my own. And to accept that, in their world, the killing of the weak and the powerless is perfectly all right.

I know it is very difficult to do; but you see, there is a difference in stance, between that of transforming energy for New Earth, and that of law enforcement. Law enforcement deals with justice, and with cause-and-effect, and with preventing these sorts of actions that injure the public good. And so, we can safely leave the restraint of this kind of energy to law enforcement .. because that is what they do so well, so beautifully. As in ages past, that will be taken care of by law enforcement.

We who clairly hear of actions others may (or may not) be taking without benefit of Christ consciousness, can set that aside, and not be concerned, and not worry about when it will happen that the energy will stop … But instead, just accept and love and transform all humankind on Earth. I am working on that right now.

I do think it is important that we optimize our timelines whenever we feel physically threatened. You know? It is very important to stay ‘in form’ and to keep our bodies safe, despite the fact that all this mental chaos seems to be arising more and more frequently these days, when there are solar events such as coronal mass ejections, and so forth.

More and more people are awakening, and arising, and shaking off their dark tangles and their samskaras, and moving into the Light. We can help them do that, by doing as this lady taught me, on the astral plane … by total kindness and acceptance and sweetness.

That is my practice right now … I just thought I would tell you … and that, because I was taught that … because that other person did that … that all this great energy has come into Earth, in the last week, and all of that ‘Thou shalt not kill’ modification … ‘Thou shalt not kill if the person is as powerful as you are’ … seems to be resolving now, into a simple rule: Thou shalt not kill … Love thy neighbor as thyself … Those kinds of rules.

It is a wonderful day. It has been a hard thing for me to deal with, but God has sent people to Earth, who did deal with these energies. 

God bless them. God bless you all till next we meet.

The Atlantean Paradigm and That Infamous Article of Clothing, the Belt . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 13 April 2015; revised
Originally titled “That Infamous Article of Clothing, the Belt” 

  • SUSPENDERS VERSUS BELTS
  • THE CONSCIOUS MIND AND THE GUT BRAIN
  • THE ATLANTEAN PARADIGM AND THE BELT

Dear Ones,

SUSPENDERS VERSUS BELTS

I just love these old-time clothes. See how they allow the longitudinal acupressure meridians (the within-the-body axiatonal lines of Light) to flow free?

Image: Man wearing pants with suspenders and no belt: http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.2001632.1415298212!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_1200/better7f-1-web.jpg Notice how the pocket cover is squared off and secured with a button (instead of a zipper).

THE CONSCIOUS MIND AND THE GUT BRAIN

The current fashion in men’s wear cuts through the axiatonal line light flow at the navel point (where the belt is) … the result being the Atlantean paradigm … separation of points of consciousness to head (conscious thought flow) and the gut brain: chakras 1, 2 and 3 (unconscious thought flow … death-war-survival, sex-lust, and power over-male competition).

These latter are negatively aspected chakras in men today simply because of the stricture introduced by that infamous article of clothing, the belt.

THE ATLANTEAN PARADIGM AND THE BELT

Clagett, 13 April 2015, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: Outline of a man, with a blue circle around his head, and a yellow circle around his lower abdomen. The blue circle is labeled: ‘The Head – Conscious Thought Flow’. The yellow circle is labeled: ‘The Gut Brain – Unconscious Thought Flow … Chakras 1, 2 and 3 negative … Death-War-Survival, Sex-Lust, and Power Over-Male Competition. Legend: “Belts interfere with the axiatonal lines of the body. They scythe through the EMF field with a horizontal cincture, an inch-high elliptical barrier of repressed negative feelings due to the physical discomfort caused by the belt. It is the need to wear the belt so as to avoid social censure that causes the feeling of discomfort to be repressed. In the Body of Light, this looks like a compaction or darkness, a ‘density’. In the song of the body, it sounds sharp, off-key, discordant. Thus it creates physical illness.”
