SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have this for you today:

You place your eyes
Upon your minds
And not your hearts.

Because of that
The Causal Realm
Unfolds for you.

Place your eyes
Upon your heart,
And in your heart,
A sacred word
For the Name of God.

Breathe in,
Breathe out
That sacred word,
And time will have
No meaning for you.

. . . . .

That is it for today.

God bless you all,
And keep you safe,
And be with you
Through all your days.

In love, light and joy,
Alice B. Clagett,
I Am of the Stars

Meditation and Visualization to Activate the Third-Eye Point and the Crown Chakra . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged and published on 27 July 2021
Location: Los Angeles, California

Dear Ones,

Here is a meditation and visualization with a 4 and 8 count breath (inhale to the count of four while silently speaking ‘Sa Ta Na Ma’; then exhale to the count of four plus four while silently speaking ‘Sa Ta Na Ma’ twice. From my own practice of the meditation and visualization, I find it works fine if practiced for 3 minutes, and works even better if practiced for 11 minutes.

If you begin to feel light-headed or dizzy, stop practicing right away, or else begin counting faster, so that your lungs will get the right amount of oxygen …

Caveat: Before practicing this or any yoga practice or meditation, consult your medical doctor to make sure it is a good choice for you, considering what your health may be.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

“Saint Patrick’s Breastplate”
Translated by Kuno Meyer, 1890, Public Domain
Narrated and Filmed by Alice B. Clagett . 3
CC BY-SA 4.0

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

“I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgement of Doom.

“I arise today
Through the strength of the love of the Cherubim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of the resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In prediction of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

“I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

“I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me:
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak to me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me,
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From every one who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in a multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

“Christ to shield me today,
Against poisoning, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So there come to me abundance of reward.

“Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye of every one who sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

“I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.”  Amen

. . . . .

God bless you all,
And keep you safe,
And be with you
Through all your days.

. . . . .

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

A Blessing for a Curse . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 25 July 2021; published on 27 July 2021

Dear Ones,

Here is a short video about responding to curses with a blessing of grace. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I learned this just now … If a man curses you as you lie at rest, you can say: May this bad karma not return to him, but instead be dissolved through God’s great grace.

If it is a woman you can say: May this bad karma not return to her, but instead be dissolved through God’s great grace.

In that way your heart … your own heart … becomes more like the heart of Christ. And the karma of the curse is dissolved through God’s grace.

God bless you all, and keep you safe.

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. This is Coyote Trail at Paramount Ranch. I have never been here before. I will see what I find. [Shows videoclip of damselfly landing on a rock.]

Well, here I am at the top of the picnic trail, where there is no picnic bench and only one way down. That is the way I came up, which is pretty steep. [Shows videoclip of yellow flowers gently waving in the breeze.]

. . . . .

That is “Saint Patrick’s Breastplate,” a prayer on arising in the morning. This is a prayer of protection of the old sort. It was often used in Ireland in the early days of Christianity. I hope it will protect you as it does me.

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