Dear Ones,

Yesterday I was standing atop a middling peak in Chumash Park, Simi Valley, California. There I had an expansive view of a quiet, upscale urban area. The breeze on the overlook was so gentle that there was but a small rustle of leaves round my vantage point.

Off in the distance, to my left I could hear the muted roar of Freeway 118. To my right I heard, far below me, the muted roar of lawn maintenance equipment in the yards of the suburbanites.

The sound of motors is ever prevalent in our urban centers … so much so that we tune it out. I feel this ever-present dull roar of motors is one of the factors that make the noosphere of our urban centers nearly unbearable to those of us with clair skills.

The fourth dimensional occult lore … the esoteric lore of the astral realm … would have it that there are beings known as Asuras … quite unpleasant beings, that cast a shadow over the works of men. These beings, it is said (and I affirm) are attracted to dissonant, raucous sounds such as those of motors. Thus the Asuras … unbeknownst to the casual observer … flock and swarm through our city airs.

… nice beings that uplift the spirits of human beings and, through their very nature, refresh our mini-noospheres … the thoughts that tend to be in our personal brains … with the emotions of hope and loving kindness and joy in the moment.

In the occult lore there are various names for the hundreds of beings of the astral realm. In my own writings, I call the Asuras Demons or Devils or Negative Astral Beings. And I call the Suras Devas and Nature Spirits and Nature Elementals. You will find more about those beings in my blog categories by those names.

Here are two examples of the Suras: from my trek along the Chumash trail …

Can you see the faces of two brownies painted below the blue rock in this image? Paintings like these, I feel, mean that the brownies want other nature spirits to know that these rocks are their deeply cherished homes …

The Tree Spirit That Lost Its Tree . a story by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 June 2020
Previously titled: Tree Spirit Without a Home

Dear Ones,

Yesterday an awful thing happened on my street. A huge pine tree two doors from where I live was cut down …

Link: “Giant Pine Tree,” by Alice B. Clagett, 21 September 2019, CC BY-SA 4.0

Last month I had two of my three jacaranda trees trimmed, and suffered greatly for it, as, being an empath, I felt the pain of the trimmed trees all night long …

Link: “Story of the Pruning of the Jacaranda Trees,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 20 May 2020; published on 24 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iiE ..

I had read that trees scream when they are chopped down, and I definitely did not want to be home when that happened to the tree that was being cut down yesterday, so I went for a hike in the Santa Monica Mountains. When I got back, the deed was done, and the tree trimmers were packing up to go home …

Link: “Giant Pine Tree,” by Alice B. Clagett, 18 June 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: This photo was taken the next day, when the largest parts of the lower tree were hauled off.

My street has never looked so forlorn, so bare, so lacking in shade and beauty, so devoid of health-imparting oxygen. Trees are the wealth of a street and of the houses there, I feel. What happened yesterday has made our street poorest of the poor.

Life here will never be the same again, I thought when I woke up this morning. How can I forgive this awful crime? No, I cannot forgive it! Then I thought: But if I do not release my heart from anger, what will happen to me? Yet I could not bring myself to do so.

In the early morning hours, just after sunrise, I was visited again and again by a big astral being that I thought must be that of the man who ordered the tree to be cut down. I thought that because the being expressed what I had thought for some years to be the thoughts of the man in question. This being was maybe three feet high, and had a substance or heaviness to it; as well, it had an intellect, but the emotions of a small child.

I sternly said to the being: Go away! Go home! 

Each time I said that, it would feel upset and it would go off to the house of the man. But in a matter of seconds it would be back again.

Finally I thought I must have gotten it wrong. it was not the astral form of the man. Rather it was the spirit of the tree that had been cut down. The spirit of the tree was lost and bewildered. It did not know that its tree had been cut down. It was heartbroken when it found that out.

I said: You are welcome to be here with any of my trees. I went out into the backyard and showed it the trees. I said: Or you might like the trees across the street? Or maybe the trees in the field over there? 

The spirit of the cut tree went from place to place, exclaiming in joy over each discovery, After a little while, It found a young person nearby, who knows about the world of nature spirits.

That young person agreed to take the spirit of the tree in, and help heal it. She found out it had picked up many sad and angry thoughts from amongst those wafting round our street, and those thoughts were making it unhappy. To my great relief, the young woman helped the spirit of the tree release the negative emotions that were causing it trouble.

As you may know, the Devas of Earth offer guidance to the nature spirits that help grow and sustain the trees and all other beings on Earth. The healing event that happened today reminded me of the Devic Accord established in days of yore by the Devic Council so as to save their charges from harm by humans …

Link: “How Devas and Nature Spirits Help Us,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 12 July 2014; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7Rd ..

It reminded me how shocked the Devas are at the injury we humans do the nature spirits, by troubling those naturally joyful beings with our negative thoughts.

I was mulling this over when a Deva spoke to me. The Deva reminded me how I had asked my Ascension Team yesterday to do what it might to allow me to find a happy path in life. The Deva said that the tree spirits offer great power, on the astral plane, to the people living nearest them.

I feel it must be that they become attached to one such person. In this case, it must have been the man who ordered the tree to be cut down. That man had gained great power in the astral realm because of the giant tree that magnified his feeling world and broadcast it out into the neighborhood.

But I had been upset by the feelings of the man, and had never found happiness in my home. It seemed I must always defend my home from the angry, aggressive, disparaging thought forms of that man, which invaded my home all the time.

The Deva whispered: I have arranged this for you. Now you will be able to be happy.

I felt great relief, that there had been a good plan in place, and that this plan had brought about a happy ending for me, albeit through a course of dreadful sorrow the previous day.

It is true that the Devas are looking out for all the beings on Earth … us humans, as well as the trees and grasses, the gophers, coyote, rattlesnakes and circling hawks that utter such piercing cries.

If we but ask, they will bestow the blessings of a joyful, balance life upon us.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

The Day the Jacaranda Trees Were Pruned

I have a story to tell you all about the pruning of the three jacaranda trees in my front yard. I got to thinking that they were a little too tall and sprawly, especially the one that sprawls next to the roof of my house, for the sake of fire prevention on the street. So I hired someone to prune two of them way down. They are very big trees.

And the littlest one, the one to the righthand side on the street, the man I hired decided not to prune at all, because it needed a head start in relation to the other trees, to grow up a little, compared to them.

Anyway, especially on the jacaranda tree next to the roof of the house there was some radical pruning to do on the limb that stretched over the house, and on other limbs as well; it was quite a huge tree.

After some tense moments, and some expert tree trimming, the job was done. The only thing that remained to be done was to come back with that machine that grinds up stumps and tree limbs, and finish grinding up maybe a third of the severed tree limbs that did not fit into the wagon brought by the man that was hired to do the grinding up on the day of the tree trimming. That contractor was supposed to come back the next day and finish up.

Psychic Pain Likely to Do With the Pain the Pruned Trees Felt

That night the most amazing thing happened: I could not sleep for the first half of the night because of a pain in my head. I had a pain all over my crown chakra; it is the very top of my head up here [points to top of head] … my crown chakra. And it would not go away. It was not a physical pain; it was a psychic pain.

Major Upset of a Tree Spirit

In addition to this pain I heard a tree spirit … a dryad … or maybe, considering how big the tree was, it might have been a deva of the forest. It was so upset with me … very upset.

It kept saying: You don’t love me. You don’t love me at all! You don’t love me more than anything.

And it went and hid in the forest of a few giant Canary Island pine trees in the backyard of the person who lives across the street. It would not come out. It could not be cajoled out.

Examination of Conscience

Well, I had a horrible time of it. I was feeling so guilty. And I could not rest.

It had been a very difficult day, being concerned about the trees, and being concerned about the spirits of the trees and the nature spirits, and about what would happen in my front yard after that. And then what would happen, happened that night!

I really love tree spirits, and I really love trees. I just could not come to terms with it. But finally, around 3 am the following morning, I fell asleep for a few hours. Then I went out and I promised the trees I would bring them extra water so they could grow back strong and fine … the two that had been cut.

I have been doing that ever since; I have been using grey water from the sink. The trees seemed to take heart finally, and they are sprouting new leaves for the second time. I think they are going to be all right.

But I would say there is still a standoff with the tree spirit. It has not been around much, but it is working very hard right now to make the trees come back to full bloom and full leaf for the summer.

It makes me wonder what is the right thing to do. In a fire-prone climate, what is the right thing to do, with regard to pruning trees in one’s yard?

Draining of the Battery of the Tree Limb Grinding Machine

There is more to tell. The first day after the pruning, the man who was supposed to do the scrunching up of the limbs that were left in the street did not come back. So I called and asked about it; and the next day, at the very end of the day, he came back.

He was standing around with the general contractor in the street, and nothing was happening. So finally I came out, and he said that the battery that ought to start the engine on his scrunching machine had unaccountably stopped. It had been working during the day, but at my place it stopped working.

Battery Drains, Lightworkers, and Devas

As you may know from reading my prior blogs, I am not a stranger to dead batteries. Batteries die on me unaccountably all the time, both in my camcorder, and in car, and just Lord knows where else … in my flashlights … especially at times when there are Light upgrades; and it looks like, at times when the devas are riled with me as well. [laughs]

So I had a new pair of jumper cables in my car trunk, and the two men were able to start the engine after they jumped the tree limb scrunching machine, and the job was completed.

Conclusion

That is the story of the ups and downs of trimming trees in Los Angeles.

Well, you all take care! Love you lots! You are the greatest; and you are getting through a tough time right now, in good spirits. God bless you all!

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

Tiny Anthologies: Tree Spirit Friendships . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here are some photos of tree spirits … The first two photos are from a tree that grows in Towsley Canyon near Santa Clarita; it seems clear that the spirit of this California oak tree was fond of two owls. Maybe they lived in the tree.

The next tree spirit, which clearly had a horse as a friend, expresses itself through an eucalyptus tree that grows in Corriganville, near Simi Valley, California.

Another, which likes children, expresses itself through an ash tree that grows in West Hills, California …

The last tree spirit expresses itself through a eucalyptus tree in Tuna Canyon Park, California. It is clear from the heart impression on the chest of the owl portrayed in the bark of the tree that the tree spirit formed a close bond with a very special owl friend.

Devic Sunlight in Ojai 2 . photos by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 30 June 2019; published on 5 July 2019
Location: Ojai, California

Dear Ones,

Here are more photos of the Deva of the Forest in Ojai, shining through the afternoon sunlight in this video. There are some that say this is a Tree Spirit or Dryad of a Spruce Tree, but my intuition is that it is rather grand for that.

Of course, it is possible that Dryads are baby Devas of the Forest. In that case, we might be talking about the juvenile and adult form of the same being, as is the case with the Baptismal Sylph and its adult form as a glorious Seraph.

The blue diamond in the first photo is an artifact of my camcorder; the other Light effects are unique to that day …

Dear Ones,

Here are photos taken on a walk to a favorite faerie dell. Among them are two photos of a deva of the forest. Note that the blue sphere at the bottom of the deva photos is an artifact of the camcorder …

Stories by Alice: A Place in the Sun . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 26 November 2019; published on 30 November 2019

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about a chance to find a place in the Sun. 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 have a tree to show you … Here is a tree that fell down; a big old tree. Here are its roots … [shows roots] … Still there are some in the ground, I think.

The reason it fell down, I think, is that up here … [shows forest canopy above the roots of the tree] … there is really no sunlight to keep it strong and healthy. There is too much cover of other trees up there. So after awhile it weakened and fell down, it looks like.

Now let me show you what happened after that … Maybe its tree spirit told it to do that thing; told it to fall just this way … because when it did, it still had some roots in the ground, so it could draw up sustenance from the Earth.

And the crown of the tree fell down over here, see? … [Shows where crown of tree fell.] … Some of it is living. And above the crown of the tree there is an open space in the forest where the leaves can find sunlight after all.

So there is a chance that this tree will continue to thrive by relocating to a more sunlit place. Is not that something?

See, there is the beginning of it over there … [Shows length of fallen tree on the ground, and its upturned roots.]

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

Deva in the Tree 2 . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 9 November 2019; published on 22 November 2019
Previously titled: Deva in the Tree 

  • INTRODUCTION
  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is a video of sunlight peeking through a tree that reminds me of a deva I have spoken of priorly. I read, just now, about tree spirits; it seems there is a different spirit for every tree. That made me whether large trees such as this one might attract more august beings such as devas.

Then again, it may be that the spirits of trees transform from little tree spirits, to larger tree spirits as the tree grows … and then, at a certain point in the tree’s majority, might they not transform to devahood? … As is the case with the sylph that sleeps in the heart of a baptized baby, and which may, as the Christian matures in faith, transform to an august seraph; which transformation is described here …

Tuna Canyon Park . photos by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged on 5 August 2019; published on 30 September 2019
Location: Tuna Canyon Park, Los Angeles County, California

Dear Ones,

Here are some nature photos taken in Tuna Canyon Park, Los Angeles County, California, in August 2019. So far I have discovered two meditation mazes in the park. The one in the photos looks to me to be a social meditation maze rather than an official one. It looks to me like broken shards of pottery were used to make the message: I love you!

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have been talking to my friends the brownies and the gnomes lately. I have a couple of quick stories to tell you about them.

I was out swimming the other day, and also today. There is a gnome that live under a fern, under a tiny palm tree … the miniature variety next to the pool. It talked to me a couple of times. It has a low voice, and it talks very calmly.

Today I asked it why it liked to live there. It said it liked living under the fern. And the gnome showed me a picture of how the fern home looked to it. It said: It’s plenty airy …

The fern is all dried up now, because it is summertime. It comes out better in the winter, with the rains. I guess it does not matter to the gnome. It likes it very much anyway.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

Now a little about brownies. I was in the shower just now, and I was talking to a brownie that I know. I said to the brownie: We love you very much!

And several brownies went running away from that. Then in a minute they came back. And they said: We don’t like it when you talk like that. And they said: We like the way you sound when you are asleep.

The voice sounded very low, very tranquil, and very masculine. That is how it sounded to me … very, very calm and slow. So when you want to talk to brownies, you have to talk very, very slow, and very, very low. They like it like that, you see?

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

The other thing I found out about brownies was this: This morning I was drinking my cup of coffee, and I felt a constriction of the bowels, like the peristalsis of the bowels that happens in the morning. At the same time I heard, on the astral plane … if I can say it right …

You have to imagine that my voice is a male voice … a very low, quiet male voice. I cannot quite simulate that voice with my own voice, but I will try. You have to imagine that the voice is coming from your lower intestines … your colon, and around that area.

There is someone there … some nature spirit there … that is making love to your colon. And when it makes love to your colon, it does the peristalsis thing. So this would be a body elemental of the colon, or maybe a brownie that is just hanging out there.

It might be attracted to that energy that is happening with peristalsis. It called me by a simplification of my spiritual name ‘Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa’, and it went like this …

Dharam Doo, I love you.   (x3)

Like that. I heard it, and I thought: Wow, what is this … a ghost? What is this? And then I realized that it was a nature elemental or a nature spirit … maybe a brownie … working with that energy of my colon in order to accomplish a bodily function.

Quite something else, would you not say?

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I was mulling over, with some puzzlement, the recent channelings regarding brownies and gnomes, and I had a moment of intuition regarding that. I noticed that, in recent months, the subpersonal chakras that I have are strengthening.

One thing to which I attribute that, is the mantra I have when I walk outside or do garden work, and which I have mentioned priorly. That mantra is: Mother Earth loves me. Mother Earth loves me. I say that when I am walking: Mother Earth loves me.

And I feel very strongly … doubled or tripled … the sense of gravity, and the feeling that the energy of my pranic column … of my central vertical power current … is strengthening below the torso, and down deep to the heart of Earth. It is amazing, really.

Today, when I was in the shower, I was talking to the brownie about the color of the subpersonal chakras down deep into the Earth. I thought: These chakras must look like jewels, to the brownies and the gnomes. 

Without my even asking the brownies… just as I thought that thought … they said: Yes, they do!

I said: Well what do they look like?

Here is what they said: The first subpersonal chakra, they said, looks dull yellow, as if there were brown mixed in with the yellow; and it glows like a jewel.

The second subpersonal chakra … far beneath that … looks dull red, as if there were a little brown or red mixed in with the red; and it glows like a beautiful jewel as well.

The last one they told me about is very deep … in the center of Earth. They said: That one is black and red; and it glows like a jewel as well. It glows blackly red. 

Now you know! [laughs]

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

I was just talking to various gnomes about the brownies … what kind of sounds they liked. And the gnomes said that the brownies do not like motor sounds; they like gurgling sounds … and also that their function is digestive. They like digesting things. They like digesting food inside us, and they also like digesting leaves into humus … that kind of thing. They like digestion. That is a very important function in the world.

There is that!

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

It is possible that the people in the world relate to a particular type of astral being. Some may relate to gnomes or brownies the most. Others might relate more to what we used to call faeries, or to elves. Or there may be other nature spirits … nature elementals, for instance … that they relate to.

As far as nature elementals are concerned, I relate the most to the sylphs of the wind. Then as far as the other four categories are concerned, I relate the most to the faeries, and then second-most, to tree spirits. It is only just lately that I have made the acquaintance of the gnomes and the brownies.

The thing of it is, if we relate first to a particular kind of nature spirit, then it is likely that we will be associating, on the astral plane, more with other people who do the same. You know what I mean?

Then later, as we expand into Awareness of the other beings … the other positive beings of the astral plane … we may get to know more people as well, as those other people may have, as their first and foremost nature spirit, the one that we are just starting to get to know; in this case, brownies and gnomes.

I was just out for a swim. And while I was swimming, I was talking to the nature elementals and the various types of nature spirits. I do not talk to much to the gnomes and the brownies, so I thought I would talk to them today. I will let you know what I found out.

I said: Could I talk to the brownies or the gnomes?

And then I heard a sibilant whisper. It said: I am a gnome. We like wowie things. We do wow all day long.

I said: Why do you do wow all day long?

And the gnome said: When we do wow, the cancer runs away. And the blood runs very well. 

I said: Why does the cancer run away?

And the gnome said: We don’t like cancer at all. We don’t like cancer. 

So I said: I see. How very nice to talk to a gnome today.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have been having unusual channelings regarding gnomes and brownies lately … graduating to dwarves and orks and beings of that nature. So it was with less surprise than priorly, that I was in the gas station yesterday … it was broad daylight … and I casually asked, on the astral plane, if there were any gnomes about. I was wondering.

And from underneath my car, at the aisle where you pump the gas, I heard: I’m under here. [laughs]

I said to myself: This couldn’t possibly be true, because my car will be gone in a moment.

And so I said to the voice under the car: Are you a gnome? 

It said: Yes.

I said: But my car will be gone in a moment.

And it said: That’s ok. 

I said: Where will you go, when my car is gone? … because they like dark, low spaces.

It said: To the other car, on the other side.

I said: But you’d have to be moving all day long! [laughs]

And the gnome said, in a very low voice: That’s ok. It’s worth it.

I could only deduce from that: Maybe it liked the whizzing sound of the cars as they arrived and departed from the gas dispensing aisle outside the gas station.

I will get you a photograph of the location preferred by that particular gas station gnome …

Here is the car …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I was just going to the supermarket today, and I noticed the clouds. The clouds were auspicious for the first time in a long time. They have not been bad before, but today they are auspicious.

I went into the supermarket and I was on the way to the salad bar, which is very fresh there. And I heard a gnome in the supermarket. So I said: Where are you?

And it said: I am under the counter.

It was under … not the side of the counter where people cue up … but the other side of the counter, where they exit quickly. In its immediate vicinity under the counter … where the plastic bags are kept, on the other side there … it was pretty quiet, compared to the rest of the market … and dark … and it liked it there.

Then I heard someone … maybe a faerie, maybe a young person of pure heart, maybe a woman … who said: How do you know they are gnomes? 

And I said: Because of the warble in their voice. They wrote that down, I think.

Just to explain that a little bit farther, gnomes are pretty solitary. And I am still looking out for the different types of gnome homes. In fact, I will go back to the supermarket and take a picture under the counter there …

Gnomes’ voices sound like those of older men … maybe older great-uncles. Because they are solitary … they do not have family around. But their voices have a warble in them, that makes them very easy on the ears. The feeling that you get, from listening to a gnome, is that it is good natured, solitary, male. and older … and wise, I think … They are learned. They understand about big words. They are wise.

That is all for now.

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

Dear Ones,

Here are three stories about talking with tree spirits and trees. There’s a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I have some stories about tree spirits and trees for you.

First Story: The Tree That Lost a Limb

A few days ago, I was walking down a mountain. And I noticed a tree, because trees have been my friends since childhood. And I noticed a tree that had lost a huge limb. And the limb was lying beside the trail.

So naturally, I looked up at the tree. And the tree was pretty upset at the loss of that limb. And so, I gave it a blessing, and I started to go off. And then I heard the tree talking about how upset it was, about its footing on the hill.

And so I turned back, and I saw that there was a little ridge. The tree was on the top, On one side of the ridge was the trail, and on the other side was a great drop.

The tree was talking to its tree spirit about how upset it was about the precarious nature of where it stood, and how it had lost a limb.

So first I said: At least you lost a limb on the right side, there … Because, if you had lost a limb on the other side, you might have fallen over into the trail. And that would have been the end of that. Because people would have come and cut you up.

The tree was pretty upset still. So I asked the tree spirit to talk to the tree. And here is what happened …

The tree spirit was saying: I know what you should do. Take this root here, that’s going down into the ground, and grow it very, very strong. And you will be all right.

And yet the tree was very upset. So, I called for the deva who guards all that forest round there. And he came round and took a look, along with the tree spirit …

First, the deva said to me: I know all about these trees. And I take care of all of them. This is not your concern. I will take care of it.

It’s a good thing he said that, because I was thinking maybe I should go back, and bring along a shovel, and try and shore up the edge of the trail there, so that the tree wouldn’t fall over.

And I was thinking: I don’t think I’m strong enough to do all that work.

And the tree spirit said: Just roll down that boulder over there, and it will be ok.

And I said: You don’t understand. We humans are kind of puny. And so I can’t …

Oh, it said. Puny humans!

This conversation had gone on with the tree spirit. And the deva already knew all this stuff. Devas are quite wise; they live for thousands of years, and they know a lot from each other, and from the natural world. And who knows where else.

So anyway, the deva was hugging the tree with love. And the deva said: It’s going to be all right. In a few years, there will be a storm. And you will fall down this way, gesturing to the side towards the cliff. And you will grow up bright, green new sprouts, and become a strong tree.

The tree was so happy, and knew what was going to happen, and was prepared. And so, the deva said, Prepare yourself for that day. It’s going to be all right.

That was a big relief to me. And that’s the first story.

Second Story: The Big, Old Oak Tree with Many Children

A week later, I was walking by a big, old oak tree on the trail. I stopped for a minute, to look for tree spirits.

I guess you all know that it’s easy to see tree spirits, because they actually dwell within the trunk. Or at the base of a tree, there may be a few circling around. And you can see them, because they look a little bit like a human form, or a face.

So I saw one tree spirit … It looked kind of like an angel. It was really cool … near the base of this huge oak tree in the mountains. It was a fine tree.

So I said: What a wonderful tree you have there. I congratulate you on this tree, which shades all of the grasses round, and all of the little creatures. You’ve done a wonderful job for the sake of the forest. 

And the tree spirit said: Oh, yes! I know! [laughs]

So then I was looking round, because large trees have quite a few tree spirits, sometimes. And I saw another tree spirit. And it was on a branch. The branch was growing on a slightly upward slant. And it looked just a little bit not quite right.

I said: What is this here?

And the tree spirit of that limb there said: We do our best. 

And so I said: I’m sure you do! I’m sure it will be just fine.

The next branch over, there was another tree spirit.

I said: Hello! 

It said: I’m just here to keep the other one company! 

I said: I see!

Then I went down the trail just a little bit. And I noticed all the other children trees that were around the tree. And so, I addressed the tree and the tree spirits one more time.

I said: By the way, congratulations on all your fine, young children.

And they said: We thank you!

And as I went on, they said: This is a new day on Earth. People are starting to talk to us again. [laughs]

The Last Story: The Little Oak That Wished to Have Its Cut-Off Branches Placed Nearby

I was on my way home. I noticed another oak tree; this was a little tree. Next to it were branches … It looked like some well-meaning person had come along the trail and cut these branches off to make more room for the people to walk by.

The branches were brown and dead. They were scattered about here and there, and on down the side of the hill.

So I said: Hmm…

And the spirit of that tree said: I want my branches closer to me!

I was surprised! And then I said, Ok! 

I went around, and slowly but surely, picked up all the branches and put them around the tree.

I started to put some around another tree, right near there, because there wasn’t room.

And the other tree said: I don’t want those branches!

Apparently, I had trespasses on some tree taboo I didn’t know about.

I said: I’m very sorry!

And then I asked the first tree: Would it be all right if I put them around on the other side? 

And it said: Yes!

I said: Why do you want those branches ’round you?

And it said: I just like them near me.

What Can Be Learned from Conversations with Trees and Tree Spirits

So, there are three tree stories for you, in case you want to learn how to talk to trees and tree spirits, you can!

And the minute you start doing that, you’ll gain a wealth of information about how we humans can live at one with the natural world.

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

Dear Ones,

As worldwide telepathy is set in place as a result of the Awakening, more and more human beings are beginning to become empathic. They are feeling the hearts of other humans, and of other beings on Earth, no matter how small and seemingly insignificant these beings are.

We begin to talk, not only with all humankind everywhere, but also with our pets, wild animals, flowers, and trees. We begin to know and respect the many beings on the astral plane. We begin to communicate with the beings of Light that undertake Earth’s care, and with the angels, the devi, and the nature spirits of Earth.

And so, as our senses reach out and make ‘first contact’ with the many other beings who have, all this time, been sharing this great Earth with us, we can feel their hearts just as if they were our own hearts. We humankind are beginning to understand what it is like to live in harmony with other beings here on Earth.

SENTIENT AND NONSENTIENT BEINGS

All beings everywhere express the Light and love, the Divine intelligence of God. And so, all beings are worthy of respect and care. On both the physical and the astral plane, there are beings of two types: sentient beings and nonsentient beings.

Sentient beings are aware that they exist. Nonsentient beings exist in joy, without knowledge of themselves as other than everything in God’s great creation.

SENTIENT PHYSICAL BEINGS

Elephants, Dolphins and Whales

Humankind is pretty much onto the need to respect other sentient beings on the physical plane, such as elephants, dolphins, and whales. Laws are being set in place to protect these sentient species.

Trees

Last week, I began talking with the spirits of trees (not the nature spirits protecting them, but the trees themselves). Trees are also sentient beings, living right amongst us. Our lives depend on their ability to produce oxygen for us to breathe. Efforts are being made to preserve the life of trees, to plant new trees in cities and reforest where fires and lumbering have diminished their numbers.

Still, senseless decisions are made by urban forestry crews in cities such as Santa Monica, to cut down our beautiful old trees, and plant, by whim or fancy, other trees. Were our foresters to know the agony they cause by these killings, their hands and their killing weapons would no doubt be stayed forever. I pray that our urban foresters, and our lumberjacks, will soon develop the telepathic skills to communicate with trees, and to understand what needs to be done to co-exist in harmony with this great, wise, and loving group of sentient beings, the trees of Earth.

A Call to Reach Out Telepathically

As worldwide telepathy is set in place, let those of us so called, reach out telepathically to these sentient physical species in love and Light and peace. This reaching out, in itself, will provide the avenue for the unfoldment of harmony with other sentient beings on physical Earth.

SENTIENT ASTRAL BEINGS

I have read that there are many, many species of astral beings, just as there are, counted to date, 8.7 million species of animals and plants on Earth. I would just like to approach some broad categories here.

Devas and Nature Spirits

Still with us on Earth, and co-creating the physical realm through their astral weavings, are the great Devas, members of the Angelic Realm, and the joyful throng whose work they lovingly supervise: nature spirits, faeries, elves, brownies, gnomes, elementals, and so on. I have written a lot about these in past; please see the blog category: Devas – nature spirits – nature elementals

Jinn and Afrits

Islam has known of these beings for centuries, yet they are almost unknown in Western culture. They are family oriented, power loving, and possessed of powers with regard to the Plane of Forces greatly superior to those of humankind.

The Jinn and Afrits love dry, sandy places. We humans have been testing atomic weapons and waging war in their homelands. Let our military forces, and those of all nations, consider the rights of the Jinn and Afrit to live in peaceful harmony with humankind. Let us set aside the deserts of Earth as their respected dwelling places.

Here is a warning: Let them be to themselves. Looking to history, to see what attempting to ally with them can bring about, we have the example of King David, who formed an alliance with them. True, he was able, through genocide of foreign tribes (50,000 men, women and children were slain), to gain control of the regions round about where he lived. But through karmic involution, this act of genocide brought about the dark times of the Holocaust, during which millions of Jews died.

A further result is unending war in the Middle East, where the Jews and the Arabs are encroaching on the desert homelands of the Jinn and Afrits. It is the Jinn and Afrits that can cause Jews and Arabs to war on each other, by ratcheting up their aggressive instincts. Why would they do this? Because both Jews and Arabs are invading their homelands, and giving birth to more children that take more of the territory belonging to the Jinn and Afrits. This human territorial expansion into the deserts threatens the children of the Jinn and Afrits.

The Jinn and Afrits have inhabited Earth far longer than has humankind, and they have equal rights to live here.  They are worthy of respect. Let our intentions toward them be respectful and peaceful.  Let us no longer unwittingly wage war on their homelands.

As to what will happen during the Awakening, their aspect is of power and respect for power, reveling in the powers of the natural world. This energy strand may be best suited to a long sleep, during the Age of Light, though it is entirely suitable to the 10,000-year Ages of Darkness on Earth. They may choose to live quietly during this Age of Light or to enjoy life on a dry planet elsewhere during this Age of Light. They are, however, quite fond of Earth. It is their homeland, just as it is ours. Discussions are underway with the Galactic Council regarding their options. I am certain that their great wisdom will see them through to the proper interim path.

A final word or two regarding the Jinn: The Jinn are quite something to communicate with. You may wish to affirm that they are a very resplendent people (very bright, full of Light and wisdom and power). You may wish to affirm: I am humbled by your wisdom, noble Sir!

For more on discourse with them, go to my blog … LInk: “Dealing with the Disincarnate Gods,” by Alice B. Clagett, 10 May 2016 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-5g1 … Search for the word Vyasa, and read the following text. It is clear to me, from that text, that the Disincarnate Gods (whom I term “Novice Ascended Masters”) work with the Jinn, as the conversation described is couched in terms used by the Jinn cultures. For more on the fate of the Novice Ascended Masters during this time of transition, see below in the current blog.

Afrits. Note that these beings are variously termed Ifrit, efreet, efrite, ifreet, afreet, afrite and afrit.

I have never run across an Afrit, but I have heard they are pretty fearsome; they may delight, for instance, in causing murder, auto accidents, and other calamities for humankind. I feel their attitude towards humans is hostile, as is the attitude of some supervisory nature spirits (not Devas, but those who do their work on a lower level), who have been driven half mad by human disregard for the natural world.

I cannot advise as to diplomacy regarding the Afrits. Avoiding them might be best, till more is known about them.

Dragons. As far as I know, the last astral dragon, which was sequestered deep underground, and had been ‘waiting it out’ in a brooding, mildly malevolent manner for a long, long time, left Earth by intentional dissolution just as the Shift occurred. I had the privilege of being on uneasy telepathic truce terms with it. I greatly respected its ancient store of wisdom, and felt with great poignancy its fierce courage and its dissolution.

Though humans are far inferior to dragons in mental power and in longevity, there is something about them that dragons superiorly enjoy … to do with our spunk and unpredictability, our courage and hope and faith, despite our short life span and the life challenges that each of us inevitably faces.

On other worlds, dragons still walk and fly and roam about, but not here, not now, not during the Age of Light that has now enveloped our beloved planet. Those that wish to know more of dragons must go off-planet, or wait it out about 2,000 years, till the next Age of Darkness makes Earth a more attractive habitat for them.

Demons, Devils, Satan, Fallen Angels

Demons are dark and ugly in appearance; to me, they look like dark, ominous clouds hovering round, and sometimes enveloping, human beings. As of a few weeks ago, the last demons have left the great cities of Earth. There may be a spare demon or two, here or there, hiding out in a dark anomaly or bubble. If so, these will soon be gone off-world, or else through transformation to their God nature.

Devils are astral animals. They used to appear to me to be red and fiery. They could change their size at will, but back in the day (before December 2012), so as to do their work on their human ‘cattle’, they would often appear to be 2 to 3 feet long. Often 5 or 6 would ‘mine’ the electromagnetic fields of one human being at night, turning heart energy to Darkness fit for their own nourishment.

This was before the Shift in December 2012. After that date, they found it harder and harder to turn our energy fields to the Dark. They began to turn on one another, consuming each other. Now there are none left at all on Earth, as far as I can tell.

Satan used to be a living, walking, and flying force in the noospheric plane of Earth. I did not like him at all; one must be brusque with such sorts, and unequivocally aligned with the Light. Only the Angelic Realm can counter the powers of Satan on Earth during the Age of Darkness. Only very recently, he was ferried off-world, to a place where the there are plenty of other such beings.

The Fallen Angels were Archangel Michael fractals that agreed to stay with Earth during the recent 10,000 year Age of Darkness. As Earth transformed to greater Dark, according to their prior agreement to oversee the Age of Darkness, the Fallen Angels also change … became what we term ‘fallen’. As civilization advanced, the great cities of Earth became their fiefdoms. Various among us have ‘read them their rights’ so that the Galactic Council can assign them to rehab to get their great fields of Light back in tiptop shape. From their off-world transformational light baths, they will be reassigned as their own free will carries them, to Earth or to other galaxies. There are plenty of positions awaiting their care.

Pleiadian Raiders

Those humans of Pleiadian Raider descent, including the antisocial personalities and serial killers, who may number 200 to 500 in form in the world today, will be removed off-world as they leave form during this, the moment of Earth’s Awakening. This is because Earth, for the next 2,000 years, will be too bright for them to reincarnate into.

There are a few planets, far from here, that are good habitats for the Pleiadian Raiders. In past, while the Fallen Angels (who were fractals of Archangel Michael) still walked the Earth and flew through her skies, they would ferry these Souls to their new off-world homes after they passed from form.

The experiment with the Pleiadian Raiders (who are ‘service to self’) here on Earth during the Age of Darkness, was to find common grounds for these beings with those beings who are in ‘service to others’, in a temporary ‘playground’ or habitat where both could meet and intermingle. There is still a great deal of mystery on both sides … Pleiadian Raider versus Being of Light … and further experiments are likely to take place in the next Age of Darkness.

The solution, I feel, will lie in humankind developing neutral mind, along the lines of the Buddhist teachings, and also respect for all life everywhere. These teachings of neutral mind and of respect for free will and the All are also set forth in  “The Law of One” … https://www.lawofone.info/ ..

From the point of view of the Raiders, primary social values are: Being respected, gaining power over others, and accruing wealth. As their stance is one of ‘supreme ego’, they tend to coalesce around humans seeking enlightenment; by amping up a person’s own ego, they present the ascending human with the phenomenon of the ‘Dweller on the Threshold’ … the last test, the glass ceiling that must be transcended in order to reach the level of Christed and Buddhic consciousness. Because of their presence here on Earth during the Ages of Darkness, this state is much harder to achieve during these times, when the Raiders stand as the Hounds of the Barrier, as described by Thoth in “The Emerald Tablets” as translated by Doreal …

Link: “The Emerald Tablets of Thoth,” translated by Doreal, in Crystalinks … https://www.crystalinks.com/emerald.html ..

Astral Thuggees or Elementaries

Astral thuggees or elementaries are the astral forms of humans who used their psychic abilities to their own advantage, while disregarding the notion of right and wrong. They can no longer find human incarnation suitable to the coarseness of their astral matter. They were until recently crowding round and interfering with the heart energy of all psychic humans currently in incarnation, as they have a sense that heart energy interferes with the Soul choices that got them into this fix.

The entire astral realm is being transformed through the Light, and these very dark beings are also being transformed. For instance, they are no longer crowding round and interfering with the transfer of heart energy by Lightworkers; this new thing has happened within the last month.

Novice Ascended Masters

Like all beings on Earth, humans who chose the Ascended Master path have a learning curve to go through. The first step on this path, that of the station I term Novice Ascended Master, is no doubt the hardest.

In that station, the spiritual aspirant gains all the psychic powers, but has not yet transcended ego. At this stage, the Novice Ascended Master becomes, on the astral plane, a god of Death or a Force of Nature, and his embodied followers will be seen to be carrying out his wishes in this regard. From this station he will eventually be released, and much more quickly during this time of great Incoming Light.

In these days, the thousand-year journey of beingness as a god of Death or a Force of Nature must take place in a year or two. Consequently, the Novice Ascended Masters have been having a hard go of it since about the year 2,000.

Aspirants of Novice Ascended Masters. Those who look up to the Novice Ascended Masters as their gurus and spiritual guides were much better off, during these times, turning to one of the great fully Ascended Masters, perhaps the Master to whom their own beloved Novice Ascended Master turned for inspiration. Or these aspirants may wish to turn to the Angelic Realm, or to God and God alone.

Be they determined to cling to their own Novice Ascended Master, who himself is going through great suffering in clearing through his own ego, and the mistakes in terms of ‘power over’ he made during his last incarnation, cannot expect succor from him. But rather, they will see exponential multiplication of their own suffering, especially if they find themselves driven to worship of those dark astral entities, such as Satan, the demons, and the devils who have now left Earth. In such circumstance, they will find themselves serving no power still honored or capable of maintaining a stronghold on Awakening Earth.

If the error made by their guru had to do with using his psychic powers for the advancement of his group, rather than for the good of all humankind, while disregarding the issue of morality … along the lines of ‘any means to suit this noble end’ … then clinging to their guru during the Shift will lead them to express this error in 3D, with possible physical law-enforcement ramifications for themselves.

For more on the Novice Ascended Masters, see this blog  …

Link: “Dealing with the Disincarnate Gods,” by Alice B. Clagett, 10 May 2016 …  http://wp.me/p2Rkym-5g1 ..

Disincarnate god-hood is the trying stage that Novice Ascended Masters reach where they are, on the astral plane, gods of Death or Forces of Nature.

Ghosts and Shades

Ghosts or shades are the kama rupa or desire elemental (Lower Mental Body) of human beings who have passed on. As the New Light comes in, they are clearing toward joy and love and Light. If you run across one roving round, you can direct it to a hospital, where it may be of service to the children being born.

Those ghosts of humans who have died suddenly, as through accident or suicide, have a harder time clearing as the New Light comes in; but I am confident that they will clear, maybe taking a little bit longer, or having a bit tougher go of it, as the influxes of Light change their very essence.

SENTIENT BEINGS BEYOND THE ASTRAL REALM

Beings of Light: Our Star Brethren

Beings of Light, our sisters and brothers of the stars, are now able to communicate with humans without distortions of the Light. Those of us humans who are developing telepathy: Let us join with our Ascension Team, including our dear families of Light, to help Earth through this transition in love and peace and joy. Know that communications you receive in English are distortions of the Light: these beings communicate through Light Language and through the Sounds of Light.

Angelic Realm

The angels have ever been at the ready, able to cut through the black magic spells of the beings that roam Earth during the great Ages of Darkness. And now too, during this great Awakening of Earth, they are ready to be of service to humankind and Earth. All we need do is ask for their help. But here is the hitch: Ask we must, or that Angelic aid may not be granted.

God-Awareness

Direct alignment with God in will, in heart, and in mind, is much more readily at hand during the Awakening, as the Incoming Light is destroying misunderstandings caused by distortion of the Light during the recent Great Age of Darkness. Now, we can all rise to a state of Christed and Buddhic Consciousness, of satori, enlightenment, illumination, and God-Awareness, if we set our hearts and Souls to this end.

Invocation Beyond Time and Space

So as to avail ourselves of all the help now available to us from sentient beings beyond the astral realm, may I suggest this invocation? …

Spirit to Team!
Optimize timelines and dimensions!
For the All, through Free Will! 

The Great Invocation of Djwhal Khul

For Alignment with God and God alone, may I suggest “The Great Invocation” of Djwhal Khul? Here I have channeled the prayer …

Dear Ones,

This video is about a coast live oak tree I was concerned about some years ago. Looks like it is doing just fine! There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I thought I would show you what has become of the little tree …

All right, here is the other side, looking out over a big valley …

So this tree is doing very well. I have no doubt but what the nature spirits have gotten it to extend the roots on the sunny side, deep down into the hillside, so that it will be completely secure.

So there is the tree [slightly to the left of the middle of the below photo] …

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here are a few good rules of thumb about where to locate oneself physically during a Solar Event, so as to shelter from the noosphere and regenerate one’s personal electromagnetic field:

  1. If you get good cell phone reception where you are standing, that is not the best place to be during Solar Events.
  2. If the place where you are standing would make a good cell phone tower location … like the top of a mountain or the roof of a building … that is a very poor choice of a place to be during Solar Events.
  3. For you ARE like a cell phone tower. You ARE the lines of Light between the Sun and Earth. If the conversation gets too commotional, you may wish to find geoshelter.
  4. And so, I suggest, from now through September 2016, adjust your location during Solar Events to suit your comfort zone.

This video shows some of the places that provide natural shelter from the noosphere during solar events. 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 am here at a place with a north-south facing valley; I will show you …

A Valley That Runs North-South

I am standing facing north, and it is the afternoon. And  here are two ranges of hills, with a pretty steep incline between …

Image: “North-South Valley in Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve near Victory Trailhead in Los Angeles,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… and on the way down this hill, there is a place to stop, at the edge of the road, that is protected from the noosphere of the big city [Los Angeles] here. The only thing is, in this particular location I know from past experience there are rattlesnakes around. So you have to be careful where you sit.

That is more protection over there … [pans upward] … another range of hills, pretty high hills …

Valley That Runs East-West, with a Natural Barrier at the Eastern End

This is a different kind of steeply inclined set of hills, with a valley between; and it is facing east-west, which, generally, is not as good as a north-south-facing valley …

Image: “East-West Valley in Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve near Victory Trailhead in Los Angeles,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “East-West Valley in Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve near Victory Trailhead in Los Angeles,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… but down this way … [pans left] …

Image: “East-West Valley 2 in Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve near Victory Trailhead in Los Angeles,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… see, there is the afternoon sun, up there [pans upward], and down that way … [pans downward, to the east-west-facing valley] … it is pretty much not a populated area. all the way to the ocean. So, as the Earth turns from west to east, every day, the noosphere will be lagging backwards a little bit, that way [shows a westerly direction].

And then the buildup of noospheric energy will occur over here … [pans around 180 degrees, showing an easterly direction] … on the east side of the valley. But the hills here cut that energy off. So the noospheric energy will flow up in the sky [pans upward], and on down that way … [pans westerly] … towards the ocean.

So a person situated very deep down in this hollow down here …

… might be well protected from the noosphere during a solar event.

Earth’s Rotation and the Motion of Astral Matter in the Fourth Dimension: A Hypothetical

Something to keep in mind is the rotation of the Earth with regard to the Sun. Here is how I figured it out (and then I checked it online). First I imagined how the Sun rises in the East every day, and sets in the West. And then I imagined the Sun stationary … as if I were standing on the Sun. And I imagined which way the Earth would have to rotate, if I had a friend sitting on Earth when the Sun rose in the morning.

From that visualization I figured out that the Earth must rotate from west to east … the opposite of what the Sun seems to be doing. Sometimes you will find it online otherwise, but in fact that is the way it actually is: The Earth rotates from west to east.

So the noospheric buildup … This is a hypothetical theory to fit what has been my experience … will be a sort of frictional failure to move, as regards the astral matter and the noospheric energies … as the rotation of Earth from west to east occurs.

It is building up kind of like snow in front of a snow plow, on the east side of wherever you are. So that is where you need to have a range of hills … there to the east … so that the noospheric buildup skims over the top of the hills and misses your ‘mini-noosphere’ … your Lower Mental Body, your Higher Mental Body, and your Superconscious Mind.

Geostorm Shelter: Effect of Human Population Density

And then there is the question of the congestion … human population in the area. And of course, that is very important. You want hills between you and wherever there is congested human population.

Standing in a Bowl of Mountains

This is Lockwood Valley here, which is north of Ojai, California. And over there, to the north, there is a range of mountains …

Image: “Northerly Range of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Northerly Range of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And over here on this side, towards the ocean …  [pans west] … there is a range of mountains, on the other side of which is the Pacific Ocean.

Image: “Westerly Range of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Westerly Range of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Here … [pans southerly] … there is a rise and a hill that the road goes up …

Image: “Southerly Range of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Southerly Range of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

You cannot see it, but on the other side … [pans easterly] … there is another range of mountains …

Image: “Hidden Easterly Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Hidden Easterly Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And what we have here, in Lockwood Valley, is a place that is very sparsely populated. There are a lot of nature spirits, because of all the trees here. There has not been a forest fire here in some time. The trees are in excellent shape. And this place is pretty much surrounded by mountains.

Consequently, it is extremely quiet, noospherically. The minute you descend from the high mountains [from the Los Padres National Forest along Highway 33 between Ojai and Lockwood Valley] down to here, suddenly there is noospheric silence. So this is a good example of a place where you could go, to replenish your electromagnetic field.

Standing in a Dirt Bowl Inside a Bowl of Mountains

I noticed a very peculiar landmark feature here, which seems to me to be inaccessible because it is on private land; however, we can view it from afar. It is a very small bowl. It looks like it was created by a landslide. Can you see? …

Image: “Small Bowl Within a Bowl of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Small Bowl Within a Bowl of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… like a tiny caldera (volcanic crater), or a tiny meteor hit. (Of course, that is not it; it was created by something else.) And it looks like …

Image: “Closeup of Small Bowl Within a Bowl of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Closeup of Small Bowl Within a Bowl of Mountains Viewed from Lockwood Valley Road North of Ojai, California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 23 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… it goes down farther, beneath my field of vision. If the sides of that bowl were to be stable, then sitting at the bottom of it (not too close to the far wall, which does not look too stable), but closer to this near side of it, might be a very good place to be, for electromagnetic field regeneration … especially considering that all along this stretch … [pans 180 degrees] … there are mountains all around it. And so it is a relatively low area, with a bowl inside it: Two features.

And around this way … [pans 180 degrees in the other direction] … there are more mountains; really, no houses to speak of … just a couple of ranches. So there is another type of geoshelter, a very unusual one; only, I would be very careful, here, of this ‘look’ of landslide, and sit far from it.

Conclusion

Now you know where to begin, anyway. And you can take it from there, and maybe develop some rules of your own.

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

Dear Ones,

This is a video about wild plants of the Santa Monica Mountains that was taken on 20 March 2016, the day of the 2016 Spring Equinox, in the Santa Monica Mountains …

There is an edited Summary after the video. The Summary includes many images found in the video, and a few not found there …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO         top

Words of Warning         top
Please do not take my word as to whether these wild plants are edible … In many cases, I just heard it from other naturalists. Do your research, make sure you have identified a plant accurately, make sure most folks agree that it is edible, and then if you are sampling for the first time, try just a tiny bit, and wait a day to see if you have any reaction. Any iteration of this blog must include this warning. –Alice B. Clagett

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

We are going for a botanical walk in the Santa Monica Mountains today. We will see what we find here, on this beautiful Spring day.


Poison Oak         top

Here we have a beautiful Spring bloom of poison oak. So for those that are allergic to it, here is what it looks like, with berries …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 1: Poison Oak Closeup,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Pretty, is it not? Poison oak is a relative of poison ivy, which is on the East Coast. But poison oak grows into a bush, and poison ivy is a climbing vine that climbs up the East Coast.

While most Caucasian people seem to be allergic to poison oak and poison ivy, the Native Americans had a number of uses for it, including using the pliable stems of the poison oak …

California Native Mustards         top

I am pretty sure that this is a California native mustard here …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 4: California Native Mustard,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

They grow singly; not like the ones introduced by the Padres. They grow singly, and in odd ecological niches. Ups, here is another one over here … where is it? … right over here is another one. And oh, I see some more … yes, some more, just coming up, So under this native coastal live oak tree here …

… there are a number of them. It is a very small econiche. It is not like the open field is full of mustard seeds that the Padres brought. But it is beautiful in its own way … very dainty, very nice … somewhat hard to find. There are a number of California native mustard species or types like this. While they are edible, they are endangered, so it is best to leave them alone, with the hope that they may flourish in future.


Black Sage         top

This is black sage here …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 9: Wild Cucumber,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It has a very huge root. And I see it is too soon for the prickly fruits of the wild cucumber to come out. It is a vine, and it has holdfasts that are … let’s see if I can find one … very little whorls of circular or circles of holdfasts. Ok, there is one, reaching out into space …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 10: Wild Cucumber Holdfast,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is trying to catch hold of a plant, so that it can pull the wild cucumber vine up higher into the sunlight. It climbs like crazy in the early Spring, and then it just withers away, and survives by means of the huge root underground.

This variety of nightshade … the one with the purple flowers … has fruits that are not edible. Here is the fruit of the purple, or deadly, nightshade …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 14: Purple (Deadly) Nightshade Fruits,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is a very small, immature fruit, but as I recall, it comes out green when mature, and so it is distinguished from the mature fruit of the white nightshade, which is purple, Fruit is mature when it is soft or squishy.

There are nightshade references at the end of the “White Nightshade” section below.


White Nightshade         top

There is another nightshade, white nightshade (Solanum douglasii), that has black fruit; I heard from a naturalist that the black fruit were edible, but after trying one of the berries, I feel a little queasy. So I would advise caution in trying even the white nightshade fruit.

For those who are allergic to tomatoes, eggplants, or potatoes, which I understand to be in the same family, common sense dictates avoiding the fruit of the white nightshade.

Nightshades are a little like mushrooms: Only those who are certain what variety they have in hand ought collect them for consumption. This link is a good guide to the various nightshades of California …

Fiddleneck: In one place read that this plant is poisonous, and in another that it had Native American uses. I would steer clear of it entirely.

It has a seed cluster (sumac ‘drupe’ or ‘bob’) that looks like a dusky, red Christmas tree. The birds eat it. I heard from my mother that it is poisonous, but I think in the Orient that this, or some relative of it, is used as a spice. So that is something to look into, for the future, without actually consuming it in advance of the research. [The spice I had in mind is Ziyad Brand Sumac, but whether this is the same or a different plant, I have no idea.]

White Sage         top

I doubt we will see any white sage on this walk. White sage has straight, white stems, and it is gathered … usually illegally … by people who sell it in bundles for incense to purify or cleanse people’s homes. You will see six-inch or eight-inch stacks of it, tied with yarn or string, and sold in the stores, and typically it is gathered nearby, rather than out in the National Forests, where, as i recall, it may be legal to gather it.

So I would like to ask, on behalf of the conservancy organizations: Please do not gather wild plants in the National Parks or the Santa Monica Mountains or like that … places where it so easy to gather, and where things can become endangered if you, in fact, do that. This is just a plea and an explanation. I am hoping for the best, there.

… which has so many uses, I must look them all up! But I will tell you one colorful example: They say that if you gather mugwort, which grows plentifully in some areas, and dry it, and put it inside your pillow, then you will have special dreams.

I tried this myself; and because I was not all that fond of the strong odor of the mugwort, my dreams were not all that pleasant. But you may have better luck than I.

The other thing I know about mugwort: To my mind, ‘wort’ means ‘plant’ and ‘mug’, to me, means that you make tea out of it, and put it in a mug. That is how I think of it. And so I remember that a tea of this is good for women. It solves various troubles that can be looked up, and brings balance to the female system. There may be other uses too.

The Native Americans would gather them, haul them, mash them up, net them, put them in running water, in a stream or like that, in the wintertime, to get the bitter tannin out of them, and then mash them up more, and use them as flour in their foods.

And because they mashed them in stone hollows, with stones, the acorn meal was mixed up with sands from the stone, it was mixed in with the food that they ate, and it wore down their teeth at a very early age. It is better to use some other kind of mashing technique, I feel.

Here are the leaves of the tree that produces the acorns …

You have to be very careful to take them out of their green sheath. Or you can wait until the seeds are mature and hard, and then you can grind them up and use them in your food. It is very important to get the sheaths off though, because they can stick in your throat and feel funny.

Live oats … whole fields full of them! There are some of them up there, across the road. These are all live oats …

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about some adventures with astral entities. And about protecting the natural world. The beautiful instrumental music at the end of the video is ‘Prelude No. 20’ by Chris Zabriskie, CC by 4.0. After that is an edited Summary, followed by two sections not in the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

On Encountering Devilish Astral Entities on a Walk

Walking up a mountain today, I encountered many little, devilish astral entities, perhaps because, as my heart rate increased with exertion, my body cells became agitated? Then I sat, at the top of the mountain, and the astral chatter around me started to calm down; at the same time, my heart rate decreased, and presumably, my body cells became less agitated.

The Pros and Cons of Lying to Small Demons and Devils

Later, as I walked along the ridge of the mountain, I noticed some little Demons and Devils hanging around, swooping in, saying, “Who are you? Who are you?” I tried tricking them; instead of explaining that I am a Lightworker, I said, “I am a Darkworker!”

Just like that, they all scattered off. But this only worked for a short time. Apparently, as I clair heard about it, these little entities have a mandate from the (presumably more prestigious) entity in charge of that local group. He says that humans can’t lie, and that Devils and Demons can lie. So his aficionados figure that we humans are telling the truth, no matter what.

But when a human says, “I’m a Darkworker,” when in truth they are a Lightworker, then all the nature spirits, the positive astral entities of the Devic Kingdom, get upset, and they start chasing you around. So, I find, it is better to tell the truth in the spirit world … as I found out later.

After a while, I got down to the bottom of the mountain, and I sat for a while on my favorite meditation stone … the one that has an orange cat’s-eye marble as a gift for the faeries on it. With great jubilation, I announced, “I’m a Lightworker!” … hoping this would clear the matter up. All the faeries and nature spirits gathered enthusiastically around. They were discussing the pros and cons of not telling the truth, if you are a human.

On Dancing with and Singing to Friendly Nature Spirits

Then I started on my way back, accompanied by those lively nature spirits. I visualized doing an Irish jig with them; they were delighted! They love it when I sing songs, or hum songs, as I go along, whether I do so on the astral or the physical plane. They love to follow along with the sound of an astral voice singing. They love to dance, and they love to mimic humans when they dance.

Video: “Irish Dance Group – Irish Step Dancing (Riverdance) 2009,” by fritz51286, 2 February 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgGAzBDE454 ..

So by the time I got back to the starting point of my hike, I found I had a whole coterie of delightful nature spirits around me. So I took one more marble out … a beautiful, blue, cats eye marble … and I placed it in the place where the Sunlight will hit it on a sunny day; in a special place, for my new friends to enjoy it.

The Devic Kingdom Is the Steward of the Natural World

For the young folks that are watching this video, I would like to explain something about trees and tree spirits; and how the stewardship of the natural world takes place. You see, there is a whole other kingdom, besides the kingdom that we see in the physical world. It’s called the Devic Kingdom.

The Work That the Devas Do

Those that undertake the greatest responsibility of stewardship of planet Earth are the Devas, who are ancient beings with great wisdom. These great, wise beings form a Devic Council. There are Devas of the cliffs; of the mountaintops; sometimes of great, vast valleys; of the ocean; of the Sun; and of the Moon. Nearly every natural feature has a Deva in charge of it.

The Nature Spirits That Take Care of Trees

In the care of the Devas are all the nature spirits and the elementals. There are great old oak trees, great treasures of Earth, there on that trail I was walking. Folks do not know that there are nature spirits assigned to take care of these trees; quite a few, actually, when it comes to the largest trees. These nature spirits take particular pride in the shape of the tree, and in making sure that it can live happily and long.

Today I saw some trees today with what you might call graffiti … paint sprayed on them in the form of pictures and words. I have to say, that it just breaks their hearts when this happens to the trees that the nature spirits tend.

The Boycott of Los Angeles and the Large Cities of Earth by the Devic Council

So, please, if you are a young person, and you like to make your mark on the world with graffiti, please do not do it on living beings such as trees. It is very important that we make friends with the Devas, because they are boycotting Los Angeles and the large cities right now, and have asked the nature spirits not to talk to us humans at all. This is because the Devas cannot tolerate the living conditions we humans are imposing on the nature spirits there.

The Evil to Which the Nature Spirits Fall Prey in the Large Cities of Earth

And so, the nature spirits in the large cities of Earth are having a very difficult time of it. Without the guidance of the Devas, they fall prey, over and over again, to the machinations of the demon world, which hypnotizes these innocent beings in furtherance of its Machiavellian ends. 

Please Respect Trees, and the Natural World That Is So Very Important to Us

After they are mesmerized with black magic, and without the wise guidance of the Devas, these beautiful little nature spirits can tend well to the trees and plants and flowers in the large cities. That is why plants do not grow very well in the cities. And we need plants because, without plants, we won’t have oxygen in the air; and we humans need oxygen in order to stay alive.

So please do your very best to respect the natural world, and help it to flourish in a natural state. Well, that’s my statement for today; I speak on behalf of the nature spirits that I met on the trail.

Have a wonderful day … And, happy adventures in the natural world!

JANUARY 2017 REPORT ON DEVAS IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA

Yesterday, on 21 January 2017, I saw a younger Deva on a ridgetop in the Greater Los Angeles area. Also, last year, in 2016, an older Deva made the journey from Tejon Ranch, through the intervening natural areas, through a wildlife underpass on Route 118 that runs through Simi Valley, and thence to the ridgetops of the Simi Hills overlooking my home in Los Angeles. Also, there has been, for some time, a Deva on the clifftop near Gaviota State Park, located on the Pacific Ocean north of Los Angeles.

It is my hope that this increased sighting of Devas in the Los Angeles area heralds a new age of cooperation amongst the Devic Kingdom and humankind for the stewardship of New Earth.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO ASSIST IN BRINGING THE DEVAS BACK TO OUR URBAN AREAS, AND TO HELP THE NATURE SPIRITS

If you would like to assist in this endeavor, then one way to do so is to clairly call to the Devas, and ask them to visit your city. Leave little gifts for the nature spirits, through song and dance, and clairly express your gratitude to them for their work. Also, ask God to bless them, that they may be free from the ill effects of Black Magic enspellment forever.

The establishment of wildlife corridors, and diminution of traffic in the cities through ridesharing and community transport, are also very important, as is the greening of the river courses, roadways, and home spaces in urban areas.

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