Intuitively speaking, I have some thoughts on the HIV epidemic worldwide.
The last figures available for the United States are from 2013, and I feel there is a reason for this. The United States may in fact be whitewashing the facts in the arena of health, as in the economic arena, I feel.
The mass media are not effectively addressing the health issues, as well as many other problems now at hand. What we, as concerned citizens, need to do, I feel, is to go out and talk with other people about how things are for them and their family and friends. That way we can get a true picture of what is going on in America.
My own analysis is from the clair plane. Here is what I feel about the HIV epidemic: During 2015, I feel, there was a ‘bloom’ in this epidemic in America. At this point, in early 2016, it may be that as many as 50% of our sexually active young people have HIV. Further, as much as 80% of MSM (men having sex with men) and IDUs (intravenous drug users) in the United States may now be infected. This, however, is only my clair perception; it will be up to my friends and neighbors to talk honestly with each other and try to discover the truth of the situation.
THE COURSE OF EPIDEMICS
By analyzing the history of other epidemics that have taken place in the world, such as the deadly flu epidemic of the early 1900s, and the Black Plague of the 1300s, we can come to some conclusions about the course of epidemics.
Epidemics may occur as ‘common source outbreaks ‘ or ‘propagated outbreaks’. (2)
COMMON SOURCE OUTBREAKS
Common source outbreaks occur when everyone in a group is suddenly exposed to a common infecting agent … as was the case in the 2015 salmonella outbreak in California, which was linked to raw tuna imported from Indonesia (3). Just about everyone who ate the tuna got salmonella, and all the people who were infected got the disease at about the same time. This is because there was one common source of infection; everyone ate the tuna and got the salmonella pretty much simultaneously.
In the case of common source outbreaks, the epidemic curve looks like a simple bell curve. For example, see http://epiville.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/assets/images/cholera.gif See how the curve goes along for a while with barely an increase, and then suddenly it jumps up into a ‘spike’ or ‘bloom’? (4)
The historic deadly flu epidemic, the black plague, and the HIV epidemic are examples of propagated outbreaks. These are outbreaks in which the disease spreads from one person to the next. In this case, the graph showing the numbers of infected people looks like ever higher waves (or ‘spikes’ or ‘blooms’) of infection. See, for example: http://epiville.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/assets/images/ptp.gif
HIV EPIDEMIC: THE FIRST WAVE
The HIV epidemic has been very slow moving. It started out in 1959, and as with typical bell curve motion, had hardly any impact worldwide till the 1990s. At that point a first-wave propagating outbreak ‘bloom’ began … see the graph “Global HIV Trends — The Annual Number of Deaths Due to AIDS” here: http://ourworldindata.org/data/health/hiv-aids/
This first propagating wave peaked in 1996. At this point in time, you will find, in Centers for Disease Control data (5) and in many other blogs, the notion that HIV has been ‘handled’ or ‘controlled’ or ‘conquered’. This is because we have been, between 1996 and 2013, in a trough between the first and the second propagating wave.
HIV EPIDEMIC: THE SECOND WAVE
I am only speaking from the clair plane; the statistics are just not out there online. But intuition very clearly tells me that the slow-motion second wave of the HIV epidemic has hit our children, as well as older people who are at risk, including those who are M2M or IDU, sex workers (both male and female (6)), and straight women who date bisexual men.
I posit we are in the midst of a sudden, meteoric rise or ‘bloom’ here in the United States, that this bloom may be known to Urgent Care Centers and larger medical centers across the nation, and that the figures have not found their way to the mass media.
In Russia, I feel, HIV reporting may be more truthful. See, for example this article, “Russia’s HIV Epidemic Compounded by Economic Crisis,” by Alina Yablokova , February 27, 2016 , http://globalriskinsights.com/2016/02/russian-hiv-epidemic-compounded-by-economic-crisis/
Wikipedia, I feel, gives a realistic estimate of the effect of the HIV epidemic on the world economy; see “Economic Impact of HIV/AIDS,” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_impact_of_HIV/AIDS
INFLUENCE OF THE CULTURES OF COUNTRIES
Here in the United States, there is nearly no mass media support for a chaste, family oriented lifestyle. Quite the opposite: For many of our young people, because of the effect of mass media and because of peer pressure, promiscuity starting in early childhood is the norm. Consequently the HIV epidemic is likely to progress more quickly though our country than through more morally conservative countries.
There may be other nations that cherish the ideals of chastity and family life, and whose peoples are less influenced by the mass media. Such countries would be more likely to progress more slowly through the curves of the epidemic. Slowing the spread will not end the epidemic, but it might give these countries more time to plan for changing health care and economics.
THE CURE TO THE ‘AIDS HATRED SYNDROME’
There is something that needs to be said about AIDS in relationship to the emotion of hatred. From the standpoint of the unconscious thought cloud of the world, the word ‘AIDS’ is very ill-conceived. Nothing causes more misery to a person than the diagnosis of ‘AIDS’. How could anyone think that such a diagnosis ‘aids’ a person? On the contrary, I’ve heard on the clair plane that such a diagnosis makes a person feel partitioned out from the mainstream of society, almost like the diagnosis of leprosy did in Christ’s day.
AIDS causes an emotional condition I term “AIDS Hatred Syndrome.” All over the world, people with AIDS need help, cry out for help, and find themselves shunned by people who are not infected and fear that they may one day be infected.
The AIDS Hatred Syndrome causes those with AIDS to become callous to the notion of spreading the disease. So what? … they may feel. Do these uninfected people care about me? What should I care whether I infect them or not? And so, feeling increasing embitterment, they may being to practice unprotected sex.
The possibility of becoming attuned to AIDS Hatred is very real for longtime HIV survivors. They may begin to feel hatred of all humankind. Because they are the recipient of many violent thought forms from uninfected people, and from people they may have infected, they may develop violent ideation … nightmares and daydreams of treating their tormentors with like violence and inhumanity.
By my intuitive perception, the feeling of hatred is the one thing that will hasten the demise of those suffering from the disease. And so I hold out this hope:
If you have the virus, feel only Love. Practice Christ Consciousness. This is your test in these times: To feel love, even though love is not returned to you. This is your personal key to the Ascension process.
VIOLENCE BY THE UNINFECTED
There has been some news reporting that intimates China may be using AIDS infection by prostitutes from its cities as a means of genocide for the Uyghur, a non-oriental ethic group in northwestern China … see “HIV/AIDS Spreads Among Uyghurs in China’s Xinjiang,” 11 August 2015, http://www.newnownext.com/last-men-standing-the-forgotten-survivor-of-the-aids-epidemic/03/2016/
In Africa, some time ago, I heard of incidents where older men were raping young girls, with the notion that they were free of the HIV virus. Back then, this was resulting in the very young getting HIV. At that time, I heard, there were villages where all the adults had passed on of the epidemic, and the young teens were doing their best to keep their younger siblings alive. I’m hopeful that charities have by now stepped in to ameliorate these dire situations.
Some semblance of these unhappy scenarios may be about to take place in the United States, as awareness of the second wave may be less evident to some segments of the older population.
SEX WORK AND HIV
In some countries, decriminalization of prostitution seems to be slowing the spread of AIDS, possibly because sex workers can more easily seek HIV treatment, and treatment lowers the incidence of transmission.
In the United States, where sex work is criminal, I’ve heard on the clair plane that sex workers with AIDS sometimes find compassionate doctors who will issue them a certificate of clear health, so that they can continue working. If this is so, then it’s clear that people here who frequent sex workers will be more likely to contract HIV, even though the sex workers they frequent appear to have a clean bill of health.
THE OUTLOOK FOR THE WORLD
What can we expect ongoing, as wave after wave of the HIV pandemic hits our world? As with past epidemics, we may expect a lowering of the world population, and a slowdown in the world economy. Human pain, grief, and community loss that will be intense, and the impact in terms of human suffering needs to be taken into consideration.
For those who rely on the Bible, and have an understanding that humankind is now poised on the brink sometimes termed the ‘End Times’ … and called by us Ascensioneers the ‘Time of New Beginning’ … there is a relevant biblical passage (Revelation 9, KJV (7)):
13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
If we take this Biblical passage literally, then a possible interpretation is that the HIV pandemic will ‘slay the third part of men’. At any rate, it is bound to cause great tribulation.
During these times, the power of prayer, positive visualization, and affirmations of personal empowerment and love, and the understanding that each of us can help co-create a New Reality, will be of inestimable help to all humankind.
BRINGING BALANCE TO GAIA
In the long run, there is a good effect. The worldwide decrease in the human population will mitigate the harmful impact that human activity has had on Gaia in recent centuries. Decades from now, when the epidemic has run its course, the human population will be more in balance with the plant, animal, and mineral life, the earth and sky and waters of this beautiful planet. And that is a good thing for the generations that will follow ours.
THE CULLING PROCESS AND OUR NEW BEGINNING
In the deadly flu epidemic and the black plague, there was an immediate, radical ‘culling’ of the human population. Those who were resistent, lived. Those who were not, died.
The result of this culling process is very clear. It offers a new beginning with a stronger and more resistent genetic population. For instance, in the case of the flu, catching this disease today is a mundane event for most people who are otherwise in good health. The greatest danger in catching the flu is to the very young, the very old, and those with serious illnesses; these constitute only a small segment of the population.
And so it will be with HIV. Since this current epidemic is very slow-moving, the culling process will be slower than is the case with most epidemics. However, even now, there is evidence of some people with natural immunity to the disease. See for example: “Staying Alive: The Women Who Are Immune to AIDS,” by Stephanie Nolan, 27 May 2007, http://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/may/27/aids.features
Further, there are those who contracted HIV decades ago, but have survived against all odds. See “‘Last Men Standing’: The Forgotten Survivor of the AIDS Epidemic,” by Christopher Rudolph, http://www.newnownext.com/last-men-standing-the-forgotten-survivor-of-the-aids-epidemic/03/2016/
ATTAINING CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS IN THESE TIMES
I have heard, on the clair plane, of instances of hospitals euthanizing AIDS babies because no one wants to adopt them. I’ve also heard of people in the general population hunting down and murdering men and women with AIDS. I consider this to be both shortsighted and wrong-headed. These practices only prolong the misery that is to come, because inevitably, those who murder will come down with the infection, and they themselves must then fight for their own survival.
As Christ said, (Luke 10 KJV (7)):
In these times of the Ascension, the HIV epidemic offers all humankind an opportunity to practice Christ Consciousness, to live to the very highest inspiration that is in us. In all humility, let us recognize our common plight, nourish and heal and offer our prayers for those who are in need of our help. Let us not call any person a ‘leper’ or an unworthy person.
This is our supreme test of the End Times, to walk with an unfailing heart through the fields of suffering humankind. To offer love, and hope and faith at a time when many are angry and hopeless and forgetful of the Divine.
Remember: Among those children being born with AIDS will be those who can carry humanity forward. There will be AIDS babies who are naturally able to resist this virus, and they will be the future of humanity.
Further, though the weight of succeeding waves of the epidemic may cause a lapse in traditional healthcare, we can look to alternative remedies such as herbs, homeopathic remedies (such as Hyland’s (8)), tinctures, essential oils, vegetable juice or water fasts, colonics, and last but far from least, the new technologies of Light and Sound.
And there is more good news, from an Ascension perspective: We Ascensioneers feel that, during the coming Age of Light, our human DNA will be transformed from 2-strand to 12-strand. As this happens, we feel that the answer to all disease, the key to optimum health of humankind, will be Remembered by humanity.
Dear Ones, take heart. Act with Christ Consciousness towards your friends and neighbors, whether they are rich or poor, ‘guilty’ or innocent, healthy or ill, young or old. Let us be One loving, world community.
And more than that, for now this world community is one cherished portion of the All. We have many Star Brethren, and all the Angel Realm, to guide and comfort us.
Dear Ones, know that you are not alone, and that all is well. All that transpires in the coming years is a careful, time-wise, and loving plan … aided by those who have seen humankind and other fledgling beings through many such shining Ascensions … This Divine Plan is in place to help all with that yearning to attain true Christ Consciousness through the grace of the Incoming Light.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
THE HIV PANDEMIC, AND DATA SUPPRESSION BY THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL
My overview on the HIV Pandemic, and on data suppression by the Centers for Disease Control, is here: “Community Health: Overview of the HIV Pandemic,” by Alice, http://wp.me/p2Rkym-5QE
TOOLS TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF AIDS
The article “Charlize Theron’s 8 Quotable Moments about HIV at AIDS 2016” suggests these tools for preventing AIDS from spreading: condoms, pre-exposure prophylaxis, post-exposure prophylaxis, antiretroviral therapy, awareness, and education. See http://www.thebodypro.com/content/77956/charlize-therons-8-quotable-moments-about-hiv-at-a.html?ap=910&gclid=CMbLotCO1s4CFYeFaQod8GUH7w
ALTERNATIVE HEALING TECHNIQUES FOR AIDS
Alternative healing techniques include affirmations, essential oils, and the languages of light and healing sound. Here is one of many new Sound Healing techniques:
