I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 106.21:

“Questioner: Is it as efficacious to cleanse the house with salt and water after we move in as it is to do it prior to… we move in?

Ra: I am Ra. In this case it is not an urgent metaphysical concern as timing would be in a less benign and happy atmosphere. One notes the relative simplicity of accomplishing such prior to occupancy. This is unimportant except as regards the catalyst with which you wish to deal.”

In this question Don asked Ra if it would be better to cleanse our new house in Louisville with the salt and water after we moved into it or before we moved into it. Ra replied that the house was “benign and happy” and noted that it would be easier done before we moved in, but it was our choice. In 106.7, Ra described our new house like this:

Questioner: How about the metaphysical quality of the house? Could Ra appraise that please?

Ra: I am Ra. This location is greatly distorted. We find an acceptable description of this location’s quality to elude us without recourse to hackneyed words. Forgive our limitations of expression. The domicile and its rear aspect, especially, is blessèd and angelic presences have been invoked for some of your time past.

But, even thought our house was “benign and happy,” such a domicile still needed to be cleansed with salt and water as Ra said in 106.9:

Questioner: Would the cleansing by salt and water then be necessary for this property? Or would it be recommended, shall I say?

Ra: I am Ra. There is the recommended metaphysical cleansing as in any relocation. No matter how fine the instrument, the tuning still is recommended between each concert or working.

The couple who lived in our new house-to-be for seventeen years before we moved into it, must have been responsible for the very positive vibrations in the house. One was a painter of the palette and canvas variety, and the other one was a gardener. I never got to meet them as Don and Carla went to the real estate agent’s office to sign the purchase agreement with them, and I stayed at the house and began some of the work to unpack our belongings. We had quite a bit of unpacking to do as our possessions completely filled a 51 ft. moving van. Because the cleansing was not a pressing issue, as Ra suggested, we waited to do it until after we had moved in. In 95.11, Ra mentioned the beneficial effect of gardening that may well have played a part in our house being blessed:

We suggest the general principle of preparing each part of your environment as it best suits each in the group with the beauty which each may feel to be appropriate. There is much of blessing in the gardening and the care of surroundings, for when this is accomplished in love of the creation the second-density flowers, plants, and small animals are aware of this service and return it.

This morning I watered the flowers all around the yard since our temperatures are in the low 90s again. Then I ran a few errands to pick up a little food before stopping for lunch.

This afternoon I cleaned up the area in the garage where our chairs that we use for Homecoming were stored on top of lots of leaves that had accumulated in the three years since our last Homecoming. I also went around the yard and garage and collected extension cords that had been used to bring power out to the circle of Homecoming attendees where presentations were being given under the tent. Then I vacuumed the first floor of the house as the finishing touch for the cleanup after Homecoming.

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

September 20


Greetings in the love of Jesus the Christ. I am the spirit of the consciousness of Christ in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

My child, why do you bustle about within your mind, sorting and sifting the details of mundane experience in a ceaseless attempt to make order out of chaos?

There is great virtue in being patient enough to allow the eddies and rhythms of a complex situation to form a coherent pattern. As you become gradually aware of the pattern, you are then far more able to discern the service which has been prepared for you to accomplish.

Peace and grace be with you. 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.
