I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter One and the concept of psychic self-defense:

Psychic self-defense

Another form of communication which the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life may experience is one of what could be called of a negative nature, at least in its source of origination.

We suggest that there can be no psychic greeting component without your free will choice in an area which lies within your course of study, shall we say. There may be no obstacles placed in your path by those who are of the loyal opposition, as we have described it, but those entities may magnify those experiences which you utilize, though we must at this time suggest that this phenomenon is far more unusual than most entities would imagine, for most of the entities within your illusion find themselves moving between the choice of service to others and service to self, and have not moved far enough in either directions to attract the attention of those who would choose to manipulate that movement. Q’uo, April 30, 1989

Psychic greetings, or psychic attacks, are not likely to happen to most conscious seekers of truth until they have polarized strongly in service to others and are offering information and inspiration that can help others to create similar changes in their consciousness. The closer that Players stand to the light and love of the one Creator the more likely they are to attract the attention of negatively-oriented entities who would like to take the power of that light for themselves, or failing that, to put the light out as Ra suggested in 80.6, regarding our friend of negative polarity who was our constant companion and the source of many psychic greetings:

Questioner: What would our fifth-density visitor hope to gain for himself if he were to be successful in terminating this contact?

Ra: I am Ra. As we have previously stated, the entity hopes to gain a portion of that light; that is, the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument. Barring this, the entity intends to put out the light.

Paradoxically, the best psychic self-defense is not to defend against such attacks, not to fight back in any way whatsoever. Fighting back is the way of negativity and will actually prolong the psychic attack. This is because negative entities are adept at fighting, and positive entities lose polarity by seeing a separation between themselves and the negative entities that justifies fighting back. In truth, we are all one being, the one Creator. Jesus said, “Resist not evil.” And Ra elaborated on this technique of psychic self-defense:

Questioner: Each of us gets the signals and dreams. I have been aware of clairaudient communication at least once in waking up. Can you suggest a method whereby we might, shall I say, nullify the effect of the influence that we don’t want from a negative source?

Ra: I am Ra. There are various methods. We shall offer the most available or simple. To share the difficult contact with the other-selves associated with this working and to meditate in love for these senders of images and light for self and other-selves is the most available means of nullifying the effects of such occurrences. To downgrade these experiences by the use of intellect or the disciplines of will is to invite the prolonging of the effects. Far better, then, to share in trust such experiences and join hearts and souls in love and light with compassion for the sender and armor for the self. Ra, 44.10

Then Q’uo was able to give a larger perspective as to how psychic greetings or attacks are experienced:

The question that you ask this day concerning what psychic greeting is is a query that is, in a way, quite difficult to answer because the parameters of psychic greetings are, as several in the group have noted, subjective and varied. The essence of a psychic greeting is the intentionality of the greeter. Thusly, not all experienced resistance or experienced catalyst is of a psychic greeting nature. For the term to be properly used, the greeting needs to be one that is coming from a presence, whether it is an individual or a group entity. Further, this greeting has as its focus an encroachment into the energetic body rather than the physical body, in terms of its origin. So, one way of looking at psychic greeting would be a somewhat narrow and carefully delineated way in which psychic greetings are only those greetings which have been sent by an entity, most usually of the inner planes, with the intention of disrupting the process of spiritual evolution and causing an entity to stop its forward progress and to become lost in the side roads of inner questioning and suffering. Q’uo, December 12, 2004.

So in the forty years since the Ra contact the best way that I have found to deal with psychic greetings is in meditation. In that state I visualize the nature of the attack and see how some thought or deed of my own, that was inharmonious, was intensified by a negative being. Then I see this being as my brother or sister, in truth, and send them heartfelt love and light. I send that same love and light to the manifestation of the greeting. Then I send love and light to myself and surround myself in an armor of love and light. As Ra said, Love is the great protector. (63.5)

Today is the 42nd anniversary of the beginning of the Ra contact. It almost feels like it was another incarnation ago, but I look back at that time with great appreciation for having been able to be part of the group that brought through those of Ra through to share their philosophy of the Law of One with planet Earth. Don, Carla, and I looked at each session of Ra as a means to provide a more effective and inspired spiritual path for anyone who wants to make The Choice of polarity, open the heart in unconditional love, and graduate into the fourth density of love and understanding.

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

January 15

The Perception Of Manyness

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

In your minds you know that all things come from one source and go to one source. And yet in your hearts you who peer into the gloom of the shadows of the world’s day perceive often that many things come not from one source but from many, and likewise that the fruits of action are scattered to the twelve directions, not moving once again into unity but shattering again and again into the chaos of unintended effect.

Yet we say to you that one of the great and overriding benefits of consciousness with which the consciousness of love has been intermingled is a realization of the incorrectness of the perception of manyness, either of the source or of the final disposition of the energies which move within your notice and awareness.

Seek first to know the consciousness of love when you wish, secondly, to know the nature of those things which occur to you which are played out in front of you and which depart from you. Only in that transformed consciousness shall your eyes see truly and your heart resound with the unity of love.

Peace be with you, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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