I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 99.3:

Questioner: The instrument asks if it will be all right to keep the small gold cross on while she is in one of these sessions, or will it cause some distortion that is not advisable?

Ra: I am Ra. We scan the mental distortions of the instrument. Although the presence of the metallic substance is in general not recommended, in this instance, as we find those distortions weakening the mental/emotional complex of the instrument due to its empathic distortions, the figure is specifically recommended for use by this instrument. We would request that should any strengthening be done to the chain (as we find intended by this instrument) the strengthening links which symbolize eternity to this instrument be as high in purity, or higher, than the remainder of the device.

In this nexus that which this device represents to this instrument is a much-needed strengthener of the mental/emotional patterns which have been much disrupted from the usual configuration of distortions.”

Ra had previously mentioned that metallic and electromagnetic devices were not recommended in these sessions, as a general rule, as they could potentially interfere with the contact. So in this question Don asks Ra if Carla can wear the gold cross that she had recently purchased in these sessions. Ra said that the gold cross was, in this case, specifically recommended because it gave comfort and strength to Carla as she was trying to recover from the throat problem brought on by unclear communication in our attempt to rent a house near the airport in Atlanta. Ra also suggested that if the links between the cross and the necklace were strengthened to ensure the cross would stay on the necklace (the concept of eternity that Ra mentioned) that it was a good idea for the links to be as pure in gold content as was the rest of the cross and necklace. In 96.2, Ra gave a detailed description of how Carla’s unclear communication concerning the house in Atlanta allowed our negative friend to psychically greet Carla and put her life in jeopardy:

Questioner: Could you tell me the cause of the lessening of the physical and vital energies?

Ra: I am Ra. We found the need of examining the mental configurations of the instrument before framing an answer due to our reluctance to infringe upon its free will. Those concepts relating to the spiritual contemplation of personal catalyst have been appreciated by the entity, so we may proceed.

This entity has an habitual attitude which is singular; that is, when there is some necessity for action the entity is accustomed to analyzing the catalyst in terms of service and determining a course. There was a most unusual variation in this configuration of attitude when this instrument beheld the dwelling which is to be inhabited by this group.

The instrument perceived those elementals and beings of astral character of which we have spoken. The instrument desired to be of service by achieving the domicile in question but found its instincts reacting to the unwelcome presences. The division of mind configuration was increased by the continuing catalyst of lack of control. Had this entity been able to physically begin cleansing the dwelling, the, shall we say, opening would not have occurred.

Although this entity attempted clear communication upon this matter, and although each in the support group did likewise, the amount of blue-ray work necessary to uncover and grasp the nature of the catalyst was not effected. Therefore, there was an opening quite rare for this mind/body/spirit complex, and into this opening the one which greets you moved and performed what may be considered to be the most potent of its purely magical manifestations to this present nexus, as you know time.

It is well that this instrument is not distorted towards what you may call hysteria, for the potential of this working was such that had the instrument allowed fear to become greater than the will to persevere when it could not breathe, each attempt at respiration would have been even more nearly impossible until the suffocation occurred, which was desired by the one which greets you in its own way. Thus the entity would have passed from this incarnation.

As I remember it, the “empathic distortions” that Ra speaks about concerning Carla were Carla’s ability to feel Don’s physical and mental weariness building as time went on. And it was because of Don’s weariness that we considered moving to Atlanta so he could be closer to his work as an Eastern Airlines pilot based in Atlanta. Carla’s empathic abilities were significant as she could sense what people were feeling that she had never met but who might sit at a nearby table in a restaurant or walk by her on the street. In 106.22, Ra gave another example of how Carla’s empathic abilities functioned regarding Don:

Questioner: Can you tell me what the instrument’s difficulty was with her last whirlpool?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument took on the mental/emotional nature and distortion complex of the questioner as we have previously noted. The instrument has been taking the swirling waters at temperatures which are too hot and at rates of vibration which, when compounded by the heat of the swirling waters, bring about the state of light shock, as you would call the distortion. The mind complex has inadequate oxygen in this distorted state and is weakened.

In this state the instrument, having the questioner’s distortion without the questioner’s strength of the distortion one might liken to the wearing of armor, began to enter into an acute psychotic episode. When the state of shock was past the symptoms disappeared. The potential remains as the empathic identity has not been relinquished, and both the questioner and the instrument live as entities in a portion of the mental/emotional complex of the instrument.

This morning I worked on Chapter One of Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work. I was glad to find some areas when a quote from Ra or some thoughts from me were helpful in fleshing out the concepts that were being discussed.

This afternoon was the first afternoon this week where we didn’t get some rain, so I went outside and began weeding in the back yard. I began in the astilbe garden which is fairly large and got it weeded. Then I moved on to the Hidden Garden and got it weeded. My last two gardens to weed were the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden and the Ruins Mound, which I weeded with my trimmer.

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

July 28

The Nature Of The Holy Spirit

I am of the principle of the love of Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

We are aware that you have been wondering what is the nature of the Holy Spirit, for we address ourselves as “we,” and there are innumerable hosts of those of the Holy Spirit. We are spiritual elementals, characters and creatures of light which, moving from the undifferentiated Logos of love, are called to manifest as agents of light.

Many have received this vibration with great clarity and channeled our thoughts as if they were those of Jesus the Christ. This is not correct, as we move upon the same principles which Jesus the Christ exemplified and articulated but are not incarnational beings. Were we to appear visible before you, we would be creatures of light, dancing flames of vitality, energy, life and renewal. This is the spirit of life-giving love. We glint in the air about you, awaiting the inner call for our presence. May each call us early and late, that we may join together with the incarnated spirit of humankind to glorify that love which is beyond words.

We leave you in peace and rejoicing, now and always. 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.
