Dear Ones.

I intuit that morphine addiction apparently causes dreams of body part excision and may cause acting out behavior where the morphine addict excises body parts or disfigures the body (either their own or another person’s).

The reason for this cutting and excising behavior I feel to be that morphine is associated with hospital and medical center operations, which also involve cutting and excision of body parts of the patients. In some way the pain inflicted by this cutting and excision have been bound round and melded with the thought of and the use of morphine, whether medicinally or recreationally.

I get this from analysis of thought forms that are not my own, but which I run across on the astral plane. If you are in the physical presence of a morphine addict, then you must take special precautions not to be cut and injured by him. In addiction therapy, the addict ought to be deprived of cutting instruments.

In point of fact, I ran across a man last weekend [this was not a Caucasian man, but rather a man of a different race] whom I intuitively took to be a morphine addict. Here is my description of his appearance, as it intuitively seemed to me …

Here are the words in the video: His eyes were dead; his lips were full; his face was slack. Who was he? Was he a morphine addict?

I am hopeful that this short description of the appearance of the man I walked past this weekend will help my readers to recognize the danger they may be in if they find themselves in the physical presence of people who resemble the person I ran across. I feel it highly advisable immediately to put physical distance between yourself and such people.

On another note, I ran across the Swedish word ond today, which in that language is pronounced like the English word wound

Pronounciation of the Swedish word ond … https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sv-ond.ogg?fbclid=IwAR3Y9Zoyp7f7s-IIXbl_WzwNjTRlauMoD6fWcQaRpjDhEyAeRiKyEfuOF8A 

I have read that this word ond has three meanings in Swedish: evil; angry (an old-fashioned meaning of the word); and hurting or causing pain.

From this triple word derivation I gather substantiation that hurting and causing pain, even if done for a patient’s ultimate good, have a connection to anger and to evil. It seems to me that this evil caused by patient operations flows out into the noosphere and is seized upon by people who have early childhood Soul wounding experiences. It is because of these evil early ond experiences that people turn to morphine addiction. It is because of anger at such youthful ond experiences, I posit, that morphine addicts cut and disfigure themselves and hurt or cause pain to others. It is the resolution of these early ond experiences, I gather, that may ultimately heal morphine addicts.

For those who turn things round backwards by mistake, I would like to make it clear that I am not talking about myself, or about anyone I interact with on the physical plane, but rather about other people walking round the world, or maybe ghosts, or maybe movie characters who exhibit these traits.

In love, light and joy,

  • AN INSTANCE OF MEDICAL EMPATHY
  • ‘BEST AND LUCKEST’ DEATH DATES
  • PARIAH OR SCAPEGOAT MISQUALIFIED ENERGIES: SUFFERING IS A GOOD THING MALWARE

Dear Ones,

AN INSTANCE OF MEDICAL EMPATHY

I recall in the months leading up to the death of my Uncle Frank Marbury Clagett, on the clair plane I used to speak with him at night, when all the world was quiet. He was his old self then, young and cheerful, clever and wise.

In his later years, my uncle had a heart condition. I think it must have gotten slowly more serious with time. As a clair Lightworker and a medical empath, I used to experience many unusual events with my heart in the year 2019. It felt almost as if I were having minor heart attacks, but not quite that serious.

I know from a medical test I took in years past that experiences of seeming heart attacks are not TIAs, nor any physical heart events. Rather, they are faint imitations of physical experiences other people are undergoing. Thus it seems to me my uncle must have been suffering small heart attacks in the months leading up to his death.

In support of this medical empath theory, I can say: At his death, the seeming TIAs or minor heart attacks I had been experiencing the prior year completely ceased. My uncle went on to the astral plane, where it seemed to me he was greatly relieved to be, as the final years of failing health must have been difficult to endure, even for a person as equanimitous as he.

In the same way, I guess, a Lightworker or healer who relates to, say, a patient with liver disease and who is dying, might experience fleeting liver pains over the course of the patient’s final illness. A trip to the doctor is, of course, advisable, to rule out the possibility that the Lightworker or healer is ill. If that proves fruitless, then one may assume the fleeting liver pains are empathic reflections of the patient’s illness; especially if the Lightworker’s or healer’s pains cease the day the patient passes on.

‘BEST AND LUCKEST’ DEATH DATES

All people have a series of ‘best and luckiest’ death dates, just as the day they were born was writ in the stars as best for this incarnation. Lightworkers and healers do feel other people’s sorrows and suffering a little as if it were their own, but it is important for us to let folks go on to the next world at the appointed time. If we try to take their sorrows and suffering on and heal it through our own bodies of Light, thus extending their timeline, then we may be doing others an injustice. In addition, we may be placing an undue burden upon our own bodies of Light. I advise letting people go gently to God when the time seems right to them. That, I feel, is the best kind of death … death at the time their Soul appoints with God.

PARIAH OR SCAPEGOAT MISQUALIFIED ENERGIES: SUFFERING IS A GOOD THING MALWARE

Further, there are people in the world who spitefully attempt to force upon Lightworkers and healers the burden of their own physical pains. This is a black magic, malware practice born of ignorance of the karmic burden it incurs.

There is karmic distortion amongst some Christians that is similar in nature. Some Christians say that Christ died for us, and that therefore it is ok for them to sacrifice a Lightworker or healer, a Pathfinder or Wayshower, for the good of a Christian congregation. When you think about it, this may be the same sort of thinking that led Judas to hand Christ over to Pontius Pilate. I call that the Suffering Is a Good Thing malware; as a Lightworker, I feel it could not be a feature of New Life on New Earth.

There are few of us on Earth, and our role is important to the Ascension process. Until the Suffering Is a Good Thing malware has cleared from Earth, let us give our own selves the necessary Soul nourishment, and physical respite, so that our bodies of Light shine strong and bright.

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

Might Malaria Medicines Used for a Week Beginning Day 9 Help Prevent COVID-19 Hospitalizations? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and posted on 26 February 2021

Dear Ones,

I note the malaria medicines hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate are being used in Latin America, Asia, and Africa to treat COVID-19. But I see it is not approved by the FDA here in the United States for COVID-19?

I note hydroxychloroquine sulfate is approved by the FDA to treat lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. I read that both these diseases have to do with autoimmune disease, which occurs when a person’s immune system mistakenly attacks is or her own body.

I read there is a turning point in COVID-19 at 10 to 12 days, where a person either starts to improve, or else the disease becomes quite serious. Could it be that the determining factor in recovery or serious illness at 10 to 12 days has to do with whether the autoimmune disease kicks in at that point?

If so, then it might be appropriate to use a brief course of hydroxychloroquine sulfate or chloroquine phosphate, starting, say, at day 9, and lasting, say, for a week? Might that help prevent COVID hospitalizations, I wonder?

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

Dear Ones,

PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN DOMESTICALLY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Last month the major United States news agencies came out with articles on the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department shutting down four major crime units as a result of the Defund the Police movement …

Link: “The County Continues to Defund Law Enforcement,” by Sheriff Alex Villanueva, 1 October 2020 … https://lasd.org/county-continues-to-defund-law-enforcement/ ..

One of the units to be shut down has to do with sexual abuse, including sexual and physical abuse of children. I gather that the COVID-19 pandemic may have something to do with this, as, from a pragmatic point of view, COVID restrictions prevent child abusers from seeking sexual relief amongst the children of families other than their own.

Rather, I feel it must be true that the ‘safer at home’ regulation may have caused an increase of sexual and physical abuse of children within the home. It must be that the function of society with regard to domestic violence is less one of criminal trial and more one of counseling, the intent being to keep the family together. Thus it may be difficult for law enforcement to take a firm line with regard to physical and sexual abuse of children while the children are ‘safe at home’ during the COVID-19 pandemic.

TAKEN TOGETHER, COVID-19 AND AIDS ARE RESULTING IN INCREASED MORTALITY FOR BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN

The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in mortality mainly amongst adults, especially seniors and those with serious medical conditions. It seems that young children are much less likely to die of COVID.

On the other hand, the concomitant AIDS epidemic results in greater mortality amongst the young. Adults with AIDS who are on Western medications are said to be able to live till their 70s, albeit they are unlikely to parent children who are born AIDS-free.

It seems to me that the gravity of the AIDS infected parent’s immune system impairment may be making it more difficult for them to survive AIDS infection. In addition, I feel it may be life-threatening for AIDS infected mothers to bear children to term. Thus the situation of preserving the life of AIDS infected parents is of concern.

HOW IS A LIGHTWORKER TO HOLD THE TRIBULATIONS THAT MANIFEST ON EARTH?

We Lightworkers are very opposed to savage treatment of children. We believe in human rights, and in human kindness, one to another. We feel that to walk in Christ’s footsteps is to bring the Light of Christ Consciousness to our planet, and that this spiritual practice will help uplift our Earth.

Yet so many people here on Earth are enmired in Darkness, in the very social ills that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department until now has helped to prevent, it can be a challenge to maintain a positive outlook despite the way things appear to be, from a 3D and 4D perspective.

In addition, as a Lightworker and a medical editor, I have found it a challenge to reconcile my understanding of the grave effects of these two pandemics with my understanding of Christ’s consciousness and the Ascension process here on Earth.

This is, I feel, on the one hand a time of Great Tribulation. On the other hand, we may envision this time as the Second Coming, and of the upliftment of the world to New Life on New Earth. Yet how may we hold these great sorrows visited upon humankind … these two pandemics, the one laying low, as it does, the sick and the elderly; and the other laying low our hope of tomorrow, the cherished children of our bosom?

HOW THE AIDS PANDEMIC MAY AFFECT SOCIAL VALUES ON NEW EARTH

It came to me this evening that the AIDS pandemic may be held by those of faith in a way quite different from the norm. In a certain Light, it may be discerned to be a gift from God to humankind, which will select for the survival of the New Human on New Earth. The New Humans, I feel, will respect their children and never sexually molest them. There will be no child trafficking. Young people will be chaste, and likely remain faithful to one partner, selected at puberty, for life.

Many of the social issues currently plaguing humankind will vanish from Earth because those who practice sexual molestation of or incest with their children will see the death of their children before child-bearing age. Thus their family lines will end, and the family lines that remain will be those that sexually respect their children.

As children become more scarce, parents will most likely be keeping a careful eye on their children … even more so than they do today … to prevent their children from being snatched up by child traffickers, in whose hands they will surely die of AIDS before childbearing age.

For post-pubertic youth with multiple sexual partners there will be a great number of schools with 100% AIDS children. As I understand it, AIDS is a disease so serious that it poses too great a risk for a woman to have a child. That the child would most likely have AIDS at birth, and then only live a few years, or at most only till just before puberty, means that teens with AIDS will not have children.

The same would apply to young women and men with AIDS and who are sex workers.

That is why I feel the New Human will have cultural values of respect for their children, strict prevention of child trafficking, chastity in teens, absence of sex work, and fidelity to one lifelong spouse. It is the childbearing ability and family lines of those who have different cultural values will be cut off, and their genes eliminated from the human gene pool.

AIDS AND AND CHANGING SOCIAL VALUES IN GEOGRAPHICALLY ISOLATED CULTURES AROUND THE GLOBE

I feel there will be geographically isolated cultures that may continue these social practices for some while because AIDS infection does not reach those areas. After the time lag caused by their geographical isolation, in a matter of a generation or so, the chance HIV infection will occur, and the more isolated regions will, I feel, begin to undergo the process of social value change outlined above.

That would be, in a way, similar to the course of COVID-19 infection in the United States, where we saw much more incidence in large urban areas nationwide, and what seemed to be the less populated states in the north central part of the United States were spared severe infection till the winter of 2020. But with AIDS, I feel, for very isolated cultures, the time lag might be as much as 20 or 25 years.

INVASIVE WESTERN MEDICAL PRACTICES MAY FALL OUT OF FAVOR AS PATIENTS SEEK TO AVOID INFECTION BY AIDS-BEARING SURGEONS

As well, I feel that there will be a turning away from invasive Western medical practices, to holistic and alternative medicine as a means to prevent transmission of AIDS from doctor to patient.

As more and more Western medical practitioners are infected with AIDS, I feel it likely patients will intuitively begin to avoid potential blood mingling Western medical practices such as inoculation by needle and surgery, as the possibility of their getting AIDS from the Western medical practitioners will begin to be perceived. Thus I feel it possible that, for the next 100 years, much progress will be made in noninvasive, holistic, alternative medical applications as alternatives to invasive Western medical practices.

THE OUTLOOK FOR AIDS RESILIENCE BY THE YEAR 2120

I hope that, in the long run, humankind may become more able to be healthy, sexually reproductive, and long-lived despite infection with AIDS. That may take perhaps a century, I feel.

In the meantime, as noted above, there may be a global shift to more compassionate and heart-centered sexual practices, and less invasive medical practices, in the interests of survival of family groups during the four or five childbearing generations that must likely take place before humankind adapts to AIDS as a virus easily tolerated by those of us in good health.

LIGHTWORKERS AND HEALERS CAN HOLD THE AIDS PANDEMIC IN A NEW LIGHT OF COMPASSION AND FAITH

We have before us a Soul learning experience of unprecedented magnitude. For those that are teachers of humankind, let us embrace this experience wholeheartedly. Let us offer solace as we may to those who are suffering, but stand in our own neutral, healing Light, knowing that, despite the suffering all around us, in a deeper sense, all is well.

God is love, is He not? How can it be that He offers us aught but what will uplift and inspire us, were we to see the passing show with His eyes, feel it with His heart, and know it with His wisdom?

For the Lightworker, for instance, this is a wonderful opportunity to rise beyond the aggressor-victim paradigm so oft enacted in 3D and 4D, and to begin to welcome the thought that God does all … even that which we perceive as Tribulation … for the benefit of our own Soul Wisdom.

When we feel dismay, let us say with confidence to ourselves: I will let God take care of everything! God will take care of everything!

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

Dear Ones,

CAN THE WRONG DIET CAUSE COVID DEATH? … TWO ASTRAL STORIES

The Wife Who Insisted Her Husband Drink Soup

There is a couple that I have run across for quite some while in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, California. I stop by their store every once in a while for a snack, while traveling to West Los Angeles.

Last month I stopped by their store. On the astral airs I heard that the husband had come down with COVID. His wife, who is strong-willed, forced him to drink some soup. He (who was also strong-willed) finished the soup and died.

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on a diet that may help alleviate COVID-like symptoms. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

For those of you that develop COVID-19 symptoms or are diagnosed positive for the coronavirus and have the symptoms, I have a hint that may help diminish the harshness of the symptoms.

Here Were My COVID-Like Symptoms

On 4 March 2020 I began to develop physical symptoms I had never experienced before. At first I felt a thrumming in my gastrointestinal tract, and then a thrumming in other parts of my body. It felt as if my gut brain had sensed something awful in the air, and that my body was somehow concocting remedies for a threat it sensed … whether within my body, or merely in the air, I could not tell.

A day or so thereafter I felt a few sharp pinprick aches randomly here and there in my body. The next day I felt chills coursing through my body, but I had no fever.

In the ensuing days, I felt very great fatigue, such that all I wanted to do was sleep for days. There was a half day of gastrointestinal tract uneasiness. Then whatever it was settled as a moderate cold in the bronchial tubes and lungs, producing lots of mucus or phlegm.

A few days later I found I could get out of bed and walk a few steps without very great fatigue. After that each day was better. I was on the mend. Little by little, I began walking in the neighborhood. Then I went on to moderate mountain hiking.

Then I had a symptom that really worried me: I fell asleep one night, and then woke up to my upper airway popping closed, slightly stuck together with mucus, it seemed. Then as I inhaled it popped open. As to my recollection I had never had such a symptom before, I thought I had best try to find out what was up with that.

What Doctors in the United States Are Calling Symptoms Such as Those I Had

I stopped by one of the local hospitals, and they said my symptoms did not fit their description of COVID-19. They thought I might have symptoms of anxiety. They said they were getting lots of cases of anxious people coming to the hospital … people who thought they had COVID-19 but, they said, did not have it. So they sent me on home.

On the other side of the coin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a great many people in the United States have died this year of causes not diagnosed as COVID-19. Of the 99,000 ‘excess deaths’ that the CDC predicts for 2020, about 32,300 deaths are not diagnosed as COVID-19 …

Link: “COVID-19 Tidbits: ‘General Pandemonium’ Deaths for the United States?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 22 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ihj ..

It seems to me that people with mild COVID-19 symptoms may be going to the doctor or to the hospital, and then diagnosed as anxious, then going home and dying at home of respiratory failure due to COVID. I feel this theory is worth investigation, and hope the hospitals here in the United States will consider it.

A Diet That Helped Alleviate My COVID-Like Symptoms

For those for whom Western medicine has no remedy, I have this to offer: During the course of my March 2020 illness, I found that eating certain foods caused an immediate adverse reaction. It was as if, in the space of a few minutes, alarm bells were ringing all over my body. I would go from feeling not too good, but manageable symptoms, to desperate physical distress in but a moment.

For me, some of the foods that caused this adverse reaction were mucus-forming foods such as wheat flour or dairy; animal protein (fish, chicken, or red meat); solid foods of any kind; refined sugars; alcohol; and foods with chemicals in them.

For me, at first I switched to small amounts of water daily, and that alone. Then a little later, what I could eat was a small amount of broth from boiled or steamed vegetables. Then after a week or so, I could eat a tablespoon or so of watered down bean or lentil soup, with tender, well cooked vegetables mixed in. Days later, I could eat half a cup of the soup.

Thus through very careful diet I was able to alleviate the symptoms of the COVID-like illness I had.

How My Health Is, Three Months After Onset of COVID-Like Symptoms

Today, more than three months after onset of COVID-like symptoms, my diet is more like what used to be normal for me. But I find I want to eat much less food, and I still prefer to avoid sweets, wheat flour, and dairy products.

My physical endurance is back to normal. I am masked but out and about Los Angeles and the surrounding mountains daily.

Thoughts on Gaining Immunity From a COVID-Like Virus

I have slightly more mucus or phlegm production by the lungs and bronchial tubes than is normal. My feeling is that this may be a good thing; I may still be encountering coronavirus in the air, here in Los Angeles, but I may have developed immunity to the virus, and the mucus or phlegm from the lungs may be proof that my body is now well able to quell the virus.

Could Diet Be the Cause of Very Different COVID Impact, Country to Country?

I have been following the World Health Organization’s daily situation reports on COVID …

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

I could not but be amazed at the differences in the numbers of cases and deaths from COVID from nation to nation. It occurs to me that the diet of the peoples of some nations may promote alleviation of COVID-like symptoms. Especially I wonder if the diet of the peoples of some nations may alleviate mucus or phlegm production during pneumonia, and thus help prevent COVID deaths in those countries?

Conclusion

I know we here in the West think less of diet as medicine than do the peoples of the developing countries of the world. That may be because we have universal health care and the benefits of Western medicine.

In the case of COVID-like symptoms, it might be helpful for the people of the United States to turn to diet as medicine. Maybe we could take a look at the diet of people in countries that have been less affected by COVID than has been the United States.

As well, I hope my explanation of a diet that worked for me will be of interest and even maybe of help to those who have coronavirus-like symptoms in the coming year.

I hope everyone will be able to avoid the worst of the COVID-like symptoms through whatever diet works for them, through rest if fatigue sets in, and through God’s graceful kindness in answer to our prayers.

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