I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 89.45:

Questioner: I’ll just make the statement that I perceive that a negative polarity harvest is possible with less negativity in the environment like Ra’s environment than in the environment such as we have at present and ask if that is correct, and then is there anything that we can do to improve the contact or the comfort of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, the requirements of harvest are set. It is, however, easier to serve the self completely or nearly so if there is little resistance.

In the matter of the nurturing of the instrument we suggest further manipulation of the dorsal side and appendages of this instrument and the whirling of the waters, if possible. The alignments are conscientious. We ask for your vigilance in alignments and preparations. All is well, my friends.

I am Ra. I leave you in the love and in the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, then, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the One Infinite Creator. Adonai.”

In the first part of this question I believe that Don is referring to the two positively-oriented wanderers that incarnated on Venus to aid the harvest but who somehow switched their polarity to the negative and harvested themselves. They had come to aid those of Venus who had not made the harvest in the first 25,000 year major cycle and who felt that the wide-spread compassion on Venus was sickening. So Don asked Ra if the fact that there was so much positivity on Venus made it easier for these wanderers to polarize negatively than if they were on Earth where we have a lot of mixture of positive and negative vibrations in motion, a lot of confusion, in other words. Ra replied that the requirements for negative harvest are set as Ra mentioned in 17.32:

The entity who wishes to pursue the path of service to self must attain a grade of five—that is five percent service to others, ninety-five percent service to self. It must approach totality. The negative path is quite difficult to attain harvestability upon and requires great dedication.

Then Ra did agree that it would be easier to polarize negatively if there was little resistance. In 50.6, you can see how a lack of resistance to becoming enslaved would aid the negative entities in their polarization process:

The negatively oriented being will be one who feels that it has found power that gives meaning to its existence precisely as the positive polarization does feel. This negative entity will strive to offer these understandings to other-selves, most usually by the process of forming the elite, the disciples, and teaching the need and rightness of the enslavement of other-selves for their own good. These other-selves are conceived to be dependent upon the self and in need of the guidance and the wisdom of the self.

In closing Ra had a couple of suggestions for how we might nurture the instrument. Ra’s first suggestion was that it would be well if I massaged Carla’s back because she frequently came out of sessions with Ra with arthritic pain and stiffness in her back. In 15.23-.24, Ra made their first suggestion of the need to massage Carla’s back, legs, and arms:

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable? And can we have another session today?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument requires a certain amount of manipulation of the physical, or body, complex due to a stiffness. Other than this, all is well, the energies being balanced. There is a slight distortion in the mental energy of this instrument due to concern for a loved one, as you call it. This is only slightly lowering the vital energies of the instrument. Given a manipulation, this instrument will be well for another working.

Questioner: By manipulation, do you mean she should go for a walk, or we should rub her back?

Ra: I am Ra. We meant the latter. The understanding must be added that this manipulation be done by one in harmony with the entity. Are there any short queries before we leave this instrument?

Ra’s second suggestion was that the “whirling waters” would also be helpful as Ra first mentioned in 82.2:  

Questioner: Is there anything at all that we could do that we are not doing to—besides eliminating the contact—to increase the physical energy of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. There is the possibility/probability that the whirling of the water with spine erect would alter, somewhat, the distortion towards what you call pain which this entity experiences in the dorsal region on a continuous level. This, in turn, could aid in the distortion towards increase of physical energy to some extent.

I bought six bales of pine straw this morning, and this afternoon I spread it in the cross area where I have recently transplanted 16 ever-blooming azaleas. Then I used my garden tiller to till the gardens in the front yard along the parking area, Wuthering Heights, and the Flower Fall. Afterwards I smoothed the ground out with my garden rake and hope to begin transplanting annual flowers beginning either Saturday or Monday.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

May 5

Anchored In Love

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the consciousness of pure, whole and divine love. May you feel that love as these words surround you and penetrate you, that you may begin your day and continue your day anchored in love.

This instrument was concerned during this morning’s offering that she was so irreverent as to make jokes and to laugh with an unexpected caller. May we say forcefully that if the life is lived in the spirit of love, it is a life lived in laughter. It is a life lived in joyful humor. And one who spreads the laughter and the humor spreads the peace and the healing of Jesus Christ, Lord of all.

Are you afraid of the words “Lord” and “King”? Know that love, the very fabric of consciousness, is Lord and is King of that kingdom of love which you seek. And you do not need to seek in vain. We are of the spirit of Jesus the Christ, Comforter to the world today. And at this moment we say to you, “Live and laugh! Live and be joyful! And you shall live sacramentally and in the kingdom of eternal life.”

We leave you in the peace which passeth all understanding; in the love of Jesus the Christ, now and evermore. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.
