Dear Ones,

This is being written at what is currently thought to be the day before the peak of the Coronavirus epidemic in Los Angeles (although we are not certain whether there may be another wave later on).

The question is: Why the coronavirus pandemic? I have two possible answers …

It could be that the Martian bacterial colonists of our colon came up with the virus as a way to address the threat that the HIV / AIDS virus poses to the viability of humankind …

Link: “Did Martian Bacteria Bioengineer All Life on Earth (Including Us)?” by Alice B. Clagett, 3 December 2016 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-6uD ..

Link: “On Asking Our Martian Bacterial Colonists to Help Heal Disease,” by Alice B. Clagett, 30 January 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8gZ ..

It may also be that God provided this virus to build up our immune systems against another health threat not yet known to us on this timeline.

JOY BOLSTERS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

I admit that my line of thinking is joyfully quirky. Along those lines, I heard just the other day that positive emotions help bolster the immune system …

Video: “DR BRUCE LIPTON – CORONAVIRUS, EPIGENETICS & IMMUNE SYSTEM – MOST DANGEROUS PART OF COVID-19 IS FEAR,” by London Real, 10 April 2020 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=242&v=nkQqxkf6heA&feature=emb_logo ..

TURMERIC TO PURIFY THE BLOOD?

In India, turmeric is used in cooking quite a bit; they feel it cleanses the blood. Does the COVID-19 virus float around in the blood? If so, maybe turmeric would help get rid of it? I note there is quite a bit of turmeric in mustard, for instance.

I looked this up today in the book ..

Citation: “Foods for Health and Healing: Remedies and Recipes,” based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, edited by Gurubanda Singh Khalsa and Parmatma Singh Khalsa for the Kundalini Research Institute,, published by Spiritual Community and K.R.I. Publications, 1983 … “Chapter 10: Body Systems and Their Ailments,” the subsection: The Blood

I see there were quite a few more recommended blood purifiers there, including baked apple and cottage cheese, which sounds pretty tasty to me.

I remember this book fondly because I was Editorial Assistant for it, under my then spiritual name Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa. I still keep a copy handy on my cookbook shelf in the kitchen.

THREE-MINUTE MEDITATION TO ACHIEVE A COMPLETELY TRANQUIL MIND

I also thought of this meditation, because I, as well as many of my fellow empaths, are very sensitive to the waves of fear that have, in recent weeks, swept across Earth during the COVID-19 pandemic …

Link: “Meditation to Tranquilize the Mind,” originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on 28 February 1979, at Healthy, Happy Holy Organization … https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/health-and-healing/meditation-tranquilize-mind ..

This is one of the most effective meditations I know of to tranquilize the mind. I used it while teaching beginner kundalini yoga classes many years ago. Nearly instant peace of mind, wow!

MEDITATION CRISIS KIT: FREE DOWNLOAD

I have one other gift for you to reduce stress during the current crisis. This is the meditation “Crisis Kit” put out by Kundalini Research Institute. Here is the free download …

Link: “Kundalini Research Institute Crisis Kit,” copyright The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan … http://kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/docs/KRI-Crisis-Kit.pdf ..

I am familiar with all the meditations in the “Crisis Kit,” having practiced them myself and taught them to my kundalini yoga students in the 1980s. It is my hope you may find amongst them some that will be as helpful to you as I have found them to be.

. . . . .

Dear Ones, take heart during these times. I wish each of you good health and happiness, and the courage to face the stress of life with equanimity.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a revised excerpt from …

Link: “On Blocking a Painful Body Sensation or Thought,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 2 February 2017; revised on 26 July 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6Zg ..

… which is a longer blog on blocking a painful body sensation of thought.

This excerpt explains how to master the Plane of Forces. I cannot deny that it will take hard work, but the results are excellent, with regard to safeguarding health, improving human relationships, and meeting with success in our worldly undertakings. In addition, mastering the Plane of Forces helps still the mind and the emotions. Thus the below practices go side-by-side with mastery of mind.

HOW TO MASTER THE PLANE OF FORCES ENERGIES

Electric Energy

The human nervous system runs on electric energy …

Magnetic Energy

The human heart exhibits electro-magnetism. The magnetic quality of the human heart is the source of its power of attraction …

Kundalini Energy

This is the energy of the central vertical power current that runs along the spine. This current is the axis of the human toroidal electromagnetic field …

Pranic Energy

This is harnessed by meditators through various breathing exercises (pranayam)

Gravitational Energy

I have found very little written about harnessing the force of gravity. However, some say that,  in the Fifth Dimension, levitation …  which, in its purest state, derives from complete surrender to the will of God … shall be commonplace. Meantime, here are some ways I have come up with to play with gravity as a diversion from the nuisance effect of the Subconscious and Unconscious Thought Clouds of the World …

I find that using this mantra while standing or walking greatly increases my Awareness of gravity, and my groundedness …

  • Use this mantra while standing or walking … Link: “Mother Earth Loves Me: A Chant to Enhance the Force of Gravity,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 16 February 2019; published on 3 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-bRh ..
  • In addition, I feel that groundedness might be ramped up by stimulating the acupressure points on the soles of the feet; for instance, by doing jumping jacks or practicing on a trampoline, or by doing foot massage. Of these, foot massage is one of my favorite techniques.

Fohat or Will Power

I have read that fohat or will power is the power that links spirit to matter and shapes matter, as a potter (Spirit, whether Divine or human) shapes matter through will power from moment to moment. It is fohat through which we move our muscles to walk, for instance.

In addition there are light and heat, as possible energies to meditate on.

Light 

Awareness of Light has to do with development and perfection of the 6th chakra, the third-eye point energy. Try … Link: “Meditation for Absolutely Powerful Energy,” from the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, at Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) … https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/mantra/meditation-absolutely-powerful-energy ..

Or, go outside, sit or stand on the ground on a sunny day. It’s alright to have a sun hat on, or to stand in partial shade. Concentrate on the sunlight interacting with the shade.

Or, try this meditation to activate the Light body …

Video: “Light Body Activation!~CAUTION~ Only listen when you are ready! Binaural Beats+Subliminal Meditation,” by Spiritual Zen, 22 January 2016 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9fRFe443lo ..

Heat 

Heat is really covered under will power and kundalini, both of which create heat. In addition, here is a yoga set to create Tapa, or spiritual heat …

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

Dear Ones,

This is a video about an Energy Field Centering Kriya. There is an edited Summary after the video. After that is a short video that summarizes the affirmations and exercises in the kriya …

VIDEO BY ALICE: ENERGY FIELD CENTERING KRIYA

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I just discovered a technique that works pretty well for recentering the energies of the body from the various chakras after being subjected to the devastating psychic terrorist technique known as the ‘mind wipe’, which removes the thoughts completely from the area of the brain. And so it can feel like you are isolated from the rest of the world, and your mind has just flown off someplace. It can feel very scary.

But it is not the end of the world, and you have not ‘lost your mind’. A lot of things can happen after that. But here is a solution that works …

There is a book I used to use when I practiced kundalini yoga with Healthy Happy Holy Organization (3HO) …

Link: “Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO)” … https://www.3ho.org/ ..

… and I still like it very much today. It is called “Kundalini Yoga Sadhana Guidelines,” by Yogi Bhajan, first published in 1974. I like the old edition; the new one, published in 2007, has this kriya in it too … the very first kriya, for people who are not too used to doing kundalini yoga, is called the “Basic Spinal Energy Series” …

Link: “Basic Spinal Energy Series,” from “Kundalini Yoga Sadhana Guidelines” … http://indrasgrace.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Basic-Spinal-Kriya.pdf ..

It is just basically a lot of gentle exercises to stretch and relax the spine, mostly, and to open the chakras, and to gently bring the kundalini energy up using the ‘locks’ … the ‘root lock’ especially; for beginners, it is a good way to start: very gentle ‘root lock’.

Anyway, I tried that today. And then you do a resting exercise afterwards. If you cannot find that particular kriya, you can always make up something like that for yourself, and then continue on.

So then I lay down, and it felt like my energy was reorganizing completely. The first thing that happened was, I gently put a finger in each ear. And I noticed that someone else’s subconscious thoughts were manifesting inside of my left ear. And that person‘s conscious thoughts were manifesting inside of my right ear …

In essence, what I noticed is that someone else’s mind was in the area where my Mind Field should be … around and inside of my brain …

Link: “Latest Dialogues: A New Theory of Consciousness: The Mind Exists as a Field Connected to the Brain,” by Tara MacIsaac, in “Science & Nonduality” … https://www.archive.scienceandnonduality.com/a-new-theory-of-consciousness-the-mind-exists-as-a-field-connected-to-the-brain/ ..

Step One: May My Mind Field Energy Settle Back into My Brain

So I did an affirmation, first, that went like this …

May my mind field energy settle back into my brain.   (x3)

As I said that, I visualized a cloud of energy above my head, going slowly back down inside my head, and settling where it ought to be. I said that three times. I placed my hands, palms down, above my head, and slowly brought them down to the level of my shoulders with each affirmation. That is the first step.

Step Two: May My Heart Energy Settle Back into My Heart

And then I worked with my heart energy. I visualized the energy of my heart going back and centering itself inside my heart. And I said …

May my heart energy settle back into my heart.   (x3)

I placed my hands, palms towards my body, out in front of my heart, and slowly brought them in till they touched my chest, with each affirmation.

And I waited until that happened … and that was a very joyful feeling. It was a feeling that I was once more back home, and that all was well. That I was me, and that all was well.

Step Three: May My Navel Point Energy Be Completely Centered

Well, I thought: Since I am doing so well with these first two affirmations and visualizations, I will continue on down, with some of the important chakras. So then I placed my hands on my navel point. and I said …

 May my navel point energy be completely centered.   (x3)

And that, for me, did not result in much change, because I have a strong navel point. But in years past, I will bet, it would have made a change for me. And it may do so for you.

Step Four: May My Sexual Organ Energy Settle Back into My Body

Next I tried an affirmation and visualization that had a dramatic effect. It was this: I said …

May my sexual organ energy settle back into my body.   (x3)

I placed my hands, palms towards my body, out in front of my lower torso, and slowly brought them in till they touched my abdomen, in the area of the sexual organs (inside the body), with each affirmation.

The most amazing thing happened when I did this: I could feel the energy of another person … a man … quickly receding away on the astral plane … just going off. I could hear the talking of their gut brain going off some place … just disappearing somewhere … and a strong sense of well-being in my own sexual organs.

Step Five: May My Basal Chakra Energy Be Centered at My Perineum

And finally I did the last one, and it went like this …

First I should explain there is a location on the physical body, called the ‘perineum’; it is at the base of the torso, and half way between the sex organs and the anus. It is kind of a medical word: perineum. And that is the location of the basal chakra, which is where the kundalini energy exits the torso.

The kundalini energy courses along the spine, and exits the top of the head at the crown chakra, and exists the bottom of the torso at the perineum, where it is termed the basal chakra, according to the pre-Shift chakric lore.

So now, for the sense of survival, and concern about fear of death, and murderous rage, and those kinds of things … to settle that and make that go away, here is the affirmation …

May my basal chakra energy be centered at my perineum.   (x3)

While I said this affirmation, I left my hands, palms up, alongside my body.

Conclusion

After all these affirmations were concluded, and having rested just a little bit between each one, I began to feel a renewed sense of solidarity of my energy field along the core part of my body. This reinforced the energetic effect of the kriya that I had just done, I feel.

I recommend it, in cases of mind control, and Mind Wipe, and obsession that may be taking place. I think it will help solidify the energy field and bring it back to the true identity of the person … to their true ego and personality, and to absence of thoughts through other minds, in one’s own mind field.

Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru . A Song about Sailing through Karma . comments by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 27 February 2019; revised on 17 May 2020

  • DHAN DHAN RAM DAS GURU: A SONG ABOUT SAILING THROUGH KARMA
  • THE NAME OF GOD WILL FERRY US THROUGH THE ‘TERRIBLE WORLD OCEAN’

Dear Ones,

DHAN DHAN RAM DAS GURU: A SONG ABOUT SAILING THROUGH KARMA

This is one of my favorite songs from the old days, when I studied kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan of Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO).

We would sing this song for hours. I especially liked the part about the Guru, our true Inner Light, having the power to carry us across what we used to term the ‘Terrible World Ocean’.

Snatam Kaur sings it differently from the way I learned it, but her melody is nice too, do you not you think? …

Video: “Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur – Miracles,” by Snatam Kaur – Topic, 24 February 2015 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW7xOdyWavE ..

Here are the lyrics and their translation …

Link: “Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru,” at Spirit Voyage … https://www.spiritvoyage.com/mantra/dhan-dhan-ram-das-guru/man-000032.aspx ..

THE NAME OF GOD WILL FERRY US THROUGH THE ‘TERRIBLE WORLD OCEAN’

In the above translation it looks to me as if what we used to call the Terrible World Ocean is more mildly termed the ‘sea of existence’.

One might think of all the ocean waves in the Terrible World Ocean as the strong emotions of Lust, Anger, Greed, Pride and Attachment.

Were it not for our devotion to our Inner Light, we would surely be shipwrecked. Or raft-wrecked, as the Sikh scriptures are always picturing the devotee on a small raft, in a wild, raging storm, with nothing but the Name of God between him and the briny deeps.

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

Dear Ones,

I ran across a great quote recently, to the effect that the advice of a spiritual teacher can only take a person just so far along the spiritual path …

Image: “Your Best Teacher,” a saying by Ralph Nader … https://i.pinimg.com/originals/cd/e3/c1/cde3c1b350d0cc53a546e2949bc77592.jpg ..

GRACELIGHT DURANGO (HILDA CHARLTON GROUPS)

Some years ago, I meditated with a meditation group called Gracelight  … aka Hilda Charlton Groups … http://www.hildacharlton.com/Groups.html … The folks I meditated with were mainly the West Los Angeles branch of Gracelight, which at that time comprised a small group of women. The person who was the teacher of my West Los Angeles Gracelight teacher at that time was the meditation leader in Durango, Colorado, and the national nonprofit organization was registered in Durango …

Link: Gracelight 501C3, EIN 95-4702049 … https://www.taxexemptworld.com/organization.asp?tn=1194271 ..

In view at the meditation groups I attended were photos of various Indian saints, including the Vallalar, Sri Aurobindo, and others. In Durango there was a crystal or stone lingam about 18 inches tall; that was on the floor in front of the teacher.

Gracelight Meditations I Attended in Years Past

There were other Gracelight meditation groups on the East Coast, mainly New York and New Jersey, I believe. The Western United States leader was having meditations at his home in Durango, Colorado, and also, from time to time, at Holy Spirit Retreat Center in the San Fernando Valley, at the home of the East Coast Gracelight leader in Freehold, New Jersey, and at Stella Maris Retreat Center, Long Branch, New Jersey.

I started meditated with the West Los Angeles group on 2 February 2011, as I recall. The woman who introduced me to Gracelight was a member of a Venice Beach walking group that was an offshoot of the Sierra Club (of which I am a long-time member). That woman recommended also trying out meditations with the national leader, and I attended a number of his meditations over the years 2011-2014.

Gracelight Founder Hilda Charlton and Her Experience with Paramahansa Yogananda of Self-Realization Fellowship

While a member of Gracelight, I did some research on the founder of the group, Hilda Charlton, now passed on. She was a fascinating lady. One of the things I found out, was that she mentioned having met Paramahansa Yogananda, of the Self-Realization Fellowship, and that he had asked her to join his ashram, and that, after thinking it over, she had declined.

I see from her memoires she said that, every time she went there, he used to ask her how much money she had … and that, finally, she admitted she had none. Whether this is true or not, I have no idea. Possibly they did not get along, and that is why she said that …

Link: “My Story,” Chapter 9: Pioneers of the Soul, by Hilda Charlton … http://www.hildacharlton.com/HerOwnWords1.html ..

I found it odd … the historical link between Hilda Charlton and Paramahansa Yogananda … as my last prior meditation group experience had been with Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, in Pacific Palisades, California. That was quite a coincidence.

My Meditation Experiences at Gracelight and Self-Realization Fellowship

When I first started with the Gracelight group in West Los Angeles, I noticed Hilda Charlton’s picture on one of the meditation chairs: the shawl she wore, and the flowers. Nobody said much about it. Eventually I learned that it was a photo of Hilda Charlton, and I read a few of her little books. I began to have a feeling for the Soul that was there, who had touched and transformed many lives. Once in a while, during meditation, especially at first, I would call on her, and I would always see a vision of her, and feel blissful joy welling up in my heart.

While meditating at Self-Realization Fellowship I had also had many blissful moments, with visions of saints and feelings of rapture, during the group meditations.

Experience of Psychic Rape During a Gracelight Meditation: Why?

Then on 15 May 2014 I left Gracelight, after an experience of psychic rape during a meditation led by the Durango Gracelight leader at the West Coast Gracelight leader’s house in West Los Angeles. While I cannot say the cause of my experience during that meditation, and in fact have no way of knowing what the cause was, I felt it best, because of the temporal juxtaposition of the two events, to resign from the group that day.

So I was meditating with that group from about 2 February 2011 to about 15 May 2014 … approximately 3 years.

Code of Silence at Gracelight

I never knew much about Gracelight, or about any members of the group, as we were asked not to have social conversations with other members of the group, or with the leaders, before or after meditations. During the meditations, we could raise our hands, and if the leader nodded, we might ask spiritual questions.

A DVD about Gracelight was put out in 2006, I think it was. It was nicely done, and very inspiring. And that was all I knew about Gracelight.

I recall I knew the woman who introduced me to Gracelight, as a member of one of my walking groups, but the things we talked about were family and finances, and things of that nature, rather than Gracelight or its members.

My Research on Gracelight After I Left That Group

After I left Gracelight, I was curious what I might find out, in an amateur sleuth sort of way.  I did some online research. One of the things I gathered, after I left the group, was that its online name was changed to Hilda Charlton Groups

Link: “Hilda Charlton Groups” … http://www.hildacharlton.com/groups.html ..

I gathered this because the web site named “Hilda Charlton Groups” looks pretty much the same as the prior website for “Gracelight,” except for the name change.

I guess (although I do not know) that the name change may have taken place because there is another group, “Pillai Center Mind Science,” led by Baskaran Pillai, that sometimes uses the similar term Grace Light

Link: “Pillai Center Mind Science” … https://www.pillaicenter.com/about-us/dr-pillai ..

I also gathered, from an online background search, that the Durango leader of Gracelight may have used another name as well. Others of the Durango Gracelight group also apparently had several names, according to my online research. But you never know about background searches; two records may have been mixed up and merged.

I also found that some of the members of the group may have had felony records, at least according to my internet research. Maybe not, though … one never knows about internet research. And, maybe they are not members of the group any more, for all I know.

For me, at the time, I was upset to find out about the alleged criminal backgrounds of some of the members, as I had never known anyone with a felony record, my family and friends being ‘true blue’, law-abiding folks.

YOGI BHAJAN’S 3HO GROUP

Looking back over the years, at other meditation groups with which I have meditated …

Long ago, I was a devotee of Guru Ram Das, he of the compassionate heart, through Yogi Bhajan’s 3HO group. I lived in a 3HO ashram for 6 years, and I learned a lot there, mostly by way of suffering, because of the demands of daily meditation and selfless service. I am not big on ashram life; I am more the eclectic, more drawn to union with the God through individual spiritual practice than to life in an ashram.

SHOTOKAN KARATE OF AMERICA

After that I tried karate for over a decade, and that helped me develop my will power and face my fears. With a good deal of hard work, I eventually earned a first- and second-degree black belt.

SELF-REALIZATION FELLOWSHIP

And after that, in about the year 1999, and for some years thereafter, I tried meditating with Paramahansa Yogananda’s devotees, and walked daily around the Self-Realization Fellowship’s Lake Shrine grounds in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, to meditate and enjoy the beautiful flowers.

I recall going to Sunday lectures, which were delightful. I recall volunteering for the hospitality committee, which served refreshments after Sunday lectures.

I remember a brief stint as bracelet bell ringer during kirtan at the long meditations in the Temple, and becoming a ‘Kriyaban’ during a ceremony at Mother Center in Mount Washington, Los Angeles.

For quite a few years I was one of the coordinators of the Ladies of the Lake, an ancillary group of Self-Realization Fellowship women that met at a restaurant for a light meal and to talk about spiritual topics. That was quite a lot of fun.

I remember coming up with Creativity Events that gave those attending a chance to recite a poem, show a painting they had done, read a story, or sing a song. Those were very popular, and I had a great time organizing them.

I remember when my mother was ill and I was taking care of her in Washington, DC, area in the early 2000s, that my schedule sometimes allowed me to attend the Self-Realization Fellowship Sunday lectures in College Park, Maryland.

There I found that enthusiasm for the Creativity Events had spread as far as the East Coast. That was a wonderful feeling for me, as it seems to me that a chance for each of us … young and old … to express our creative side is very important to our well-being.

KARMA: ROARING LIKE A LION

It was just at that time, in the early 2000s, that one of my most devastating karmic ‘discharges’ (1) overcame me. In this most painful karmic play I was trapped in from about the year 2000 to 2016. I have learned a very great deal, and while my mental-emotional body, during those years, cried out in pain from time to time, I found that my Soul … when I spoke with It … was at peace and knew all to be well.

The most obvious, in-your-face thing in our lives … the thing that causes all the sorrow, and which changes moment by moment … is the karmic play. But the dharmic (2) path is to welcome the karma with an open heart, as a gift from God on our Soul’s journey.

Down through the years, my karma has pursued me, sometimes like a roaring lion, and sometimes sleeping like a little lamb. In those years from 2000 to 2016, for sure, it was a roaring lion. In those years, a great longing was in my heart, that the karmic play might be ended, that I might learn the lesson, and go on to the next one. And finally, through God’s grace, it did so.

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

Dear Ones,

The below blog mentions an organization called the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF). More about that organization here  …

SUBTLE SORCERERS, MANTRIKS

The Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) has an interesting blog on the “Subtle Sorcerer” or mantrik … a very powerful astral entity in the Demon Realm …

Link: “Subtle-Sorcerer” … https://www.spiritualresearchfoundation.org/spiritual-research/ghosts/subtle-sorcerer/ ..

Subtle Sorcerers May Be What I Term ‘Astral Thuggees’

When the SSRF refers to this type of negative astral entity, I feel it could be talking about what I term ‘astral thuggees’ … I gather this from an image I found in their article …

Link: Mantrik, or subtle sorcerer, ‘eine negative Wesenheit’ [a negative being] with a necklace of skulls, copyright Spiritual Science Research Foundation … http://www.spiritualresearchfoundation.org/de/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2014/05/2-GER-Mantrik.jpg ..

PSYCHIC POWERS OF THE SUBTLE SORCERERS

According to the article, subtle sorcerers or mantriks wield some very cruel psychic powers in the ‘power over’ world …

They Obsess the Most Powerful World Leaders

Per the article, only a few people in the world … generally people in the highest positions of power in the world … are obsessed by these beings, However, the article states, the power of Subtle Sorcerer is not to be underestimated.

According to occult lore, they obsess the most powerful world leaders, so as to lead the world in the direction of chaos and destruction. They also obsess saints, meditators and Spiritual Adepts, since these have great power to counter the Subtle Sorcerer’s malevolent actions in the world, and this power can, through devious means, be turned to the Subtle Sorcerer’s ends.

What to Do About It. We can correct this problem by opening our hearts to love and sending our ‘love tsunamis’ coursing through Gaia. Through the intercession of our spiritual Ascension teams, we can also optimize our DNA so that it is resistant to viruses, like this …

Spirit to Team!
Optimize DNA!
For the All, through Free Will!

They Can Cause Viral Mutations and Natural Disasters

They can cause viral mutations and natural disasters.

What to Do About It. Note that we humans can correct these problems with our powers of co-creation, when we align with the great Will and Heart and Mind of God. For more on this, see my blog categories: Co-creation of reality – New Creation  …  and  …  Aligning with God – dharma – right action

For the issue of healing the body, see my blog category: Health – healing

As to natural disasters, one good meditation comes to mind …

Then there is this meditation, which I feel might be helpful to improve grounding after a natural disaster …

Through mind control, they can get people to do their bidding during meditation.

What may be meant here is that they can ratchet up a person’s samskaras to a sort of whirlwind fury, as do the jinn. This is a sort of twanging of the distortions of Light in a person’s electromagnetic field (EMF), which the jinn are delighted to do for fun and mischief, but which the subtle sorcerer does with great malevolence and intention to harm humankind.

What to Do About It. For the problem of counteracting the powers of subtle sorcerers to control our minds during meditation, I suggest the following …

Susceptibility to Mind Control While Meditating Depends on Level of Gaze. Meditating with eyes cast down brings in the subconscious mind (the Lower Mental Body, in School of Theosophy terms), which is the playground of the subtle sorcerer.

Meditating with the eyes gazing straight ahead brings in the conscious mind (the Higher Mental Body, in School of Theosophy terms) and the third-eye point energies. These can be obsessed during meditation if one concentrates on the front of the forehead or the place between the eyebrows rather than on the middle of the inside of the head.

To avoid obsession of the third-eye point during meditation, place the awareness at the level of the mid-forehead or at the level of the eyebrows … but inside the head, in the center of the brain … during meditation.

How to Untie the 8th Chakra Bow-Tie Knot. Meditating with the eyes gazing up brings in the superconscious mind (and the Transpersonal Chakras), which can also be obsessed by the Subtle Sorcerer. Search my blog category: bow-tie knot

One of the best ways to untie the ‘8th chakra bow-tie knot’ is to consciously visualize flooding the area above the head with bright white Light.

If you feel an intense pressure on the top of your head (the crown chakra) during meditation, then one of these beings may be trying to interrupt the flow of your hara line (the line that runs vertically through your body, connecting it with Sun energy above and Earth energy beneath) so that you cannot contact your superconscious mind.

If you hear this astral command: “My mind to your mind” then one of these beings may be trying to take over your transpersonal chakras, and thus stop you from thinking, or from broadcasting thoughts, or take over your mind … or worse yet, may intend to take over your mind and body.

In either case, the remedy is to this, say, “Your mind to the mind of God!” Visualize the Subtle Sorcerer, a big muscular guy, full of ego, who has been hovering over you and placing his hand on top of your head. Visualize the bright Light of God flooding down from on high, through the astral form of this evil sorcerer, down through his arm and hand, into your head, and saturating your entire body …

OTHER WAYS TO WARD OFF SUBTLE SORCERERS

I note that this class of beings, which was hovering thickly in the air early this year, is now gone from my optimum timeline on New Earth. In case your optimum timeline currently includes experience of such beings (undoubtedly, this would be for the sake of Soul learning and wisdom) note the following …

Meditating on the Soul Field

The SSRF article states that those who transcend ego can deal effectively with subtle sorcerers. As a practice to overcome ego, I recommend the very simple meditation “The Airport and the Traveler” …

Link: “The Airport and the Traveler,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 12 August 2016 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-60t ..

Building Up the Life Force and the Electromagnetic Field

I also recommend building up the life force and the electromagnetic field through breathing exercises and Sat Kriya (provided your medical doctor agrees that these practices would be all right for you) …

For breathing Exercises (pranayam), especially Breath of Fire, see …

Link: “Breath of Fire (Agni Pran),” by Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) … https://www.3ho.org/files/pdfs/breath-of-fire.pdf ..

For Sat Kriya, see …

Link: “Sat Kriya,” by Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO) … https://www.3ho.org/articles/everything-kriya-sat-kriya ..

These exercises make a person’s subtle energies very strong. They also make a person physically very healthy, magnetically attractive to other people, and able to ward off negative astral entities.

In love, light and joy,
