Dear Ones,

This video is about the vital body likes and dislikes, the vital body will, and how honoring these can lead us into personal integrity and personal power. It also offers a new perspective on the victim-aggressor paradigm, threat energy, and controllers. An Outline follows the video, and after that there is a lightly edited Summary; text in green font is not in the video …

OUTLINE OF THE VIDEO

  • The vital body, according to Sri Aurobindo, is our torso, from the neck down to, and including, the sexual chakra.
  • Then there is what he calls the ‘physical body chakra’, known elsewhere as the basal chakra.
  • I’ve noticed that my vital body decisions are very spontaneous (not thought out). For instance, I like purple. The minute I see purple, I like it. It’s not a question of thinking it through.
  • In fact, automatic likes and dislikes underlie most of our choices in life. Sometimes these vital body choices take me someplace I don’t want to go … such as to the ice cream store, even though my thinking mind strongly objects. So, the vital body is quite a bully!
  • Consternation and C\capitulation: When my mental body takes over, and decides to, say, work on paperwork, and I don’t take the likes and dislikes of my vital body into consideration, then all kinds of negative thoughts come in. Eventually, they reach a crescendo point at which I must act to placate the vital body. Or else!
  • So the first principle of the vital body is: My vital body pretty much gets its way.
  • The second principle of the vital body is: If it doesn’t get its way, there’s heck to pay!
  • Story about my door alarm ringing (for no reason) just after midnight, and an immense, negatively aspected vital body energy swooping into my bedroom. It seemed to be from the unconscious mind of a lot of people. It was very angry and destructive; in fact, it could have been terrifying, had it not happened many times before.
    • I had been practicing visualizing my merkaba, a sacred geometry that protects our bodies.
    • When the other energy swooped in, my own vital body added immense energy to my merkaba, and fended off this other energy. This happened without my mental mind thinking about it; had never happened before [but has happened many times since then].
    • In the past, I had felt fear when foreign vital body energies swooped in, but this time, my vital body energy protected me.
  • I got to thinking about integrity, and facing the likes and dislikes of the vital body … something we tend to ignore in our society today.
  • Spiritual vital body blinders: A person who is spiritually inclined, for instance, will have high ideals that may not … in fact, never … completely match the likes and dislikes of the vital body. So they may be ignored.
    • For instance, the desire for sex. Every highly evolved spiritual person knows that should be controlled.
    • But the vital body will have none of that. It wants what it wants.
    • If it doesn’t get what it wants, it creates a negatively aspected mental mind.
    • And then, at night you get this roaming around, unconscious energy, of the vital body roaming around the world, creating what I term the victim-aggressor paradigm.
  • A lot of people are complaining about threat energy, about being victims, about the odious Controllers, and so on.
  • But in fact, it could be that we, ourselves, are not paying attention to what our vital bodies want.
  • Here’s another instance: All spiritually progressive people know that they shouldn’t have any of those cardinal sins; such as lust, anger, greed, pride and attachment. These are bad news for the yogi! Yet, our vital bodies have all these issues.
  • Suppose we’re in a situation where jealousy comes into play. Our spiritual self says: I am not a jealous person. But yet the vital body is simmering in upset and jealousy.
    • This could create a situation where a person hates someone subconsciously, and behaves consciously, through the mental mind, as if they loved somebody. The two don’t agree.
  • When the mental mind and the gut brain disagree, then we lose our personal power. That’s the bad news.
  • But the good news is, when I pay attention to my vital body; when it says to me, for instance, “I can’t take the paperwork anymore. I’ve got to get up and go out for a walk” … and then I listen to it, then all kinds of wonderful, creative things happen.
  • Then the wisdom of the Universe comes to me. It has to do with integrity; with honoring the vital body likes and dislikes. This then allows us to include the immense creative ability of the vital body.
  • Ongoing, I feel the thing to do is to observe, without judging, the likes and dislikes of the vital body. That act of awareness, I feel, creates a sense of integrity. Integrity creates personal power. And personal power will allow us to co-create the new reality.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am sitting here in the bright sunlight. Behind me, in the backdrop, there are some sacred, healing juniper trees … good for cleansing: for smudge, I think, or to just break off and put around in your house, or to get rid of evil spirits and bad feelings and all kinds of things … good room deodorizers, and probably good for a lot of other things too.

The Vital Body Likes and Dislikes, The Vital Body Will, and the Process of Uncovering Our Personal Integrity

I wanted to talk a little today about the vital body likes and dislikes, the vital body will, and the process of uncovering our personal integrity, as it applies to the Ascension process that we are going through.

Sri Aurobindo’s Definition of the Vital Body

First, you know, the vital body is defined as being from the neck down to the lowest chakra; it does not include the lowest chakra because, according to Sri Aurobindo, the lowest chakra old-style is the ‘physical body chakra’; others call it the ‘basal chakra’. But everything else in the trunk of the body is ‘vital body’ stuff.

The Color Purple

So, weeks ago I started noticing, first of all, they are very spontaneous; it is not something that the vital body thinks about, decides on. So for instance, I like the color purple, so I wear purple. But the minute I see purple, I like purple; and it is a vital body ‘like’, see?

There is no particular reason; maybe stream of thought association, or something like that. I would be hard-pressed to say why I like purple, but I do. And that kind of automatically triggered liking and disliking underlays most of my existence, when you come right down to it.

There is very little that I think through, and say: It would be better if I pursued this course of action, and actually carried out, unless the vital body is in agreement. And lots of times the vital body takes me places I do not want to go … like, to the ice cream store; or to buy a cola. And my thinking mind is kicking and screaming the whole way, and my vital body has to have its way. You know what I mean?

That Bully, the Vital Body

This is true of a lot of the stuff we do in life; some of it more destructive, and more destructive of our spiritual path, than that. So at first, I came to the conclusion that I was not really a person of my own determination, and my vital body was almost always running the show. Not the happiest news!

Negative Thoughts

The next thing I found out was that, when my mental body takes over, and decides: Ok, you have to work on your paperwork today! … Right? … And then I do not pay attention, as far as the vital body is concerned, then all kinds of negative thoughts come into my consciousness …

Consternation and Capitulation

… and they reach a crescendo point at which I must act, to placate the vital body, or else! I will bet you have had an experience like that! [laughs]

So the first thing is: Mostly, my vital body pretty much gets its way. And the second thing is, if it does not get its way, there is heck to pay.

The VItal Body Will

The last few days, I have been looking out for the appearance of this vital body will, right? And, interestingly enough, in the middle of the night … like 12:30 in the morning, a couple of nights ago, first my door alarm rang, without there being any particular reason for it to ring … It just started ringing. So I woke up, slightly after midnight.

Alice’s Perilous Tales: Poltergeist Experiences. Just as an aside, I have been at the effect of many psychokinetic (i.e., poltergeist) phenomena in recent years. These have included bed rattling, sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil levitating, picture rattling, the sound of footsteps on my roof or outside my bedroom window, and in the above case, my doorbell ringing.

I feel these effects were the result of repressed rage or anger in another person or persons. One of my rental landlords, in a number of ongoing instances of footsteps in his garage, interpreted them as visits from ghosts. Here is more on the phenomenon …

I’ve also heard, on the clair plane, of a fire having been set in a person’s childhood, that resulted in his house burning down, and his mother dying. It’s possible this fire was set psychokinetically or by hand, through ordinary means; I’m not sure which.

Alice’s Perilous Tales: Roaming, Negative, Unconscious Vital Body Will

To continue with the video …

Just as I got up, this immense Vital Body energy swooped into my room … Gosh! … It was not mine; it seemed to be from a lot of people; from their unconscious state. And it was very, very angry and destructive … Actually, it could have been terrifying, had it not happened many times before.

Alice’s Perilous Tales: Visualizing the Merkaba

I had been practicing visualizing the merkaba … It is a sacred geometry, that protects the physical, and the mental, and all the bodies. And so I had been visualizing that all the previous day …

Alice’s Perilous Tales: Wall of Energy Formed that Opposed the Threat of Invading Energy

And this threatening energy … this threat energy … swooped into my room. It was full of vital body will, negatively aspected. And my own vital body will added immense energy to my merkaba, and fended off this other energy … without my mental mind thinking about it. It was a complete surprise to me; it had never happened before, but it has happened many times since then. In the past I had felt fear, but this time, my vital body will protected me.

Integrity, and Facing Vital Body Likes and Dislikes

And I got to thinking about integrity, and facing the will, and likes and dislikes of the vital body.

Just from observation, I would be inclined to say that we … in our society today … tend to ignore the likes and dislikes of the vital body.

Spiritual Vital Body Blinders

So, for instance, especially a person who is spiritually inclined, will have high ideals, that may not … in fact, may never … completely match the likes and dislikes of the vital body. So they may be ignored.

The Desire for Sex

For instance, the desire for sex. Every highly evolved spiritual person knows that that should be controlled. Right? But the vital body will have none of that. It wants what it wants. And if it does not get what it wants, it creates a negatively aspected mental mind.

The Victim-Aggressor Paradigm

And then at night, you get this roaming around energy of the unconscious force of the vital body roaming around the world, creating what I term ‘the victim-aggressor paradigm’.

Threat Energy, Victimization, Controllers

And a lot of people are complaining about that: About threat energy, about being victims, about Controllers, and all this stuff … Whereas, in fact, it could be we, ourselves, not paying attention to what our vital bodies want.

Lust, Anger, Greed, Pride and Attachment

I will give you another instance: All spiritually progressive people know that they should not have any of those cardinal sins … like lobh, kaam, krodh, moh, and ahankar(the Sikh sins of greed, lust, anger or rage, attachment, and pride or conceit) … like they say in Gurmukhi (the language that the Sikh gurus spoke). Bad news for the yogi, right? But, you know what? Our vital body has all those issues, most likely.

Jealousy, Anger, Hatred

So let us say we are in a situation where jealousy comes into play, for the vital body … perhaps for no reason at all, except that the vital body tends to exhibit jealousy. And we … our spiritual selves … say: No! Uh-uh! I, Alice, am not a jealous person!

The Vital Body Will

But there I have my vital body, simmering in upset and jealous, right? And angry!

When the Mental Mind and the Gut Brain Do Not Agree

And that creates a situation where a person hates! … A person hates someone else subconsciously, and behaves, consciously, through the mental mind, as if they loved somebody. The two do not agree. And when the two brains of a human being … the mental mind and the gut brain … are divided like that, then we lose our personal power, you know?

When I Pay Attention to My Vital Body, It Seems That the Wisdom of the Universe Comes to Me

So that is the bad news. But the good news, I have noticed, is that, when I pay attention to my vital body … when it says to me, for instance: I cannot take the paperwork anymore. I have to get up and go out for a walk … right? … and when I listen to it … then all kinds of wonderful, creative things happen. And it seems as if the wisdom of the Universe comes to me.

A Sense of Body Integrity Creates Personal Power

And it has to do with integrity … with honoring the vital body likes and dislikes … which then allows us to consciously include the immense creative ability of the vital body will.

So integrity: Ongoing, in the next few days, I think the thing to do is just to observe; to observe, without judging, the likes and dislikes of the vital body. And just that act of awareness … true awareness … creates a sense of integrity. And integrity creates personal power. And personal power will allow us to co-create the new reality.

Well, that is all I have for you right now; and I cannot say how this experiment is going to turn out. But from a stepping stone along the path, I wish you all the very best. Till next time!

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