Post No. 648 - For Sunday evening’s meditation-clearing

For everyone’s convenience, I’ve shifted the reminders / explanations about Sunday’s meditation-clearing to the end of this post.

Now, the themes – short, medium and long term - that come to mind for my work this week, after I review all this news, are:

  • (a) the ongoing problem of discrimination against women;
  • (b) the need to use funding and other nonviolent means to enable resistance to repression, and that this is inextricably connected to aid;
  • (c) the importance of continuing to talk to resolve problems, and thus the need to BPLF counter anything which stops that;
  • (d) the past is still present, and injustices must be resolved;
  • (e ) the importance of fighting against constraint of proper journalism;
  • (f) the need to learn to get along with BPLF differences between people;
  • (g) that, politically speaking, ‘the people’ must be heard.

Don’t forget the Shield of Hope, and the importance of clearing nonBPLF units, as well as thinking about people and places that are most in need of help through tomorrow evening’s meditation.

News and other matters from this week include the following (opportunities are shown in green; good news is shown in purple; WARNING: some of these links may contain triggers around issues such as violence, sexual assault, discrimination, etc):

  • permanent issue: may all actual and potential BPLF [1] Leaders be kept safe against any/all attempts to divert them away from effectively fulfilling their role of Service to Life by being effective BPLF Leader(s), including keeping them undetectable to the nonBPLF and keeping all their Significant Others inviolable against being used for indirect psychic attack (including also being kept undetectable to the nonBPLF), all as is for the Highest Spiritual Good;

From the UN’s Daily Briefings (and other sources):

  • the Secretary-General has held an internal high-level meeting right now concerning sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel, which he says undermines the U.N.’s work;
  • the Secretary-General has condemned the horrific crimes committed against the Japanese hostages, but other sources have reported gains against Da’esh - but Da’esh appear to be associated with at least some of the problems in Egypt, a place for which the Secretary-General condemned the terrorist attacks in North Sinai on 29th January, which killed dozens of people, including civilians, and injured scores of others;
  • the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has said that renewed fighting in the east of Ukraine and indiscriminate shelling has resulted in civilian casualties, triggering additional displacement and the destruction of infrastructure, with more than 900,000 people have been registered as internally displaced as of 21st January. Other reports include miners being trapped after shelling. More broadly, there has been concern for a domino-type effect if Russia defeats Ukraine, and calls have been made for the West to do more;
  • the head of the UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), Martin Kobler, congratulated the Parliament on reaching a compromise on the revision of the electoral law;
  • a new round of UN-facilitated Libyan political dialogue has started in Geneva (it’s all an opportunity, remember? Do what you can to make this round of talks succeed where the others have failed);
  • the UN Peacekeeping Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) condemned the abduction of the country’s Youth and Sport Minister, Armel Sayo, and the Senior Humanitarian Coordinator for the country, Claire Bourgeois, has called for greater protection of displaced communities after visiting Batangafo last week, where there are now more than 30,000 displaced people and a continuous influx of newly displaced;
  • the African Union-UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) has facilitated the launch of the Darfur Internal Dialogue and Consultations process at El Fasher University in North Darfur, but the he Secretary-General expressed deep concern about the deteriorating security situation in Darfur following reports of an escalation of hostilities between the Government of Sudan and Darfur armed movements in Central Darfur and the resulting displacement of civilians;
  • the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Margaret Chan has presented her report to the Executive Board of the organization, in which she said that the health challenges we will face in the post-2015 era are considerable: with the rise of chronic non-communicable diseases, the sharp divide between health problems in wealthy and developing countries is dissolving, and Ebola has taught the world many lessons;
  • in his message on the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, the Secretary-General said that 70 years ago humankind united to overcome the Nazi menace, but today we are being tested again: minorities everywhere continue to face bigotry, and that sectarian tensions and other forms of intolerance are on the rise, and we still have a distance to travel in upholding human rights, preventing genocide and defending our common humanity;
  • the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said on Tuesday that it has been forced to suspend its cash assistance programme in Gaza to tens of thousands of people for repairs to damaged and destroyed homes and for rental subsidies to the homeless;
  • the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has observed rocket and artillery fire between Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Israeli forces, which is reported to have killed two Israelis, wounded others, and killed one UN peacekeeper. UNIFIL Force Commander, Major-General Luciano Portolano, has strongly condemned this serious violation of the Security Council resolution 1701 and has urged both sides to exercise utmost restraint. UNIFIL has launched an investigation to determine the facts and circumstances of the incident;
  • the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) strongly condemns the killing of eleven civilians, five of them journalists, in a roadside ambush while travelling to Raja in Western Bahr El Ghazal State on Sunday, 25 January. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) says that it is supporting one of the largest demobilizations of children from armed groups in South Sudan;
  • the Secretary-General has condemned, in the strongest terms, the attack that took place at the Corinthia Hotel, in Tripoli, expressed his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives as a result of this despicable act, stated that terrorism has no place in the new Libya and will not undermine the ongoing political dialogue which the United Nations is facilitating, and, in that regard, commended the courage of the Libyan actors who are participating in the dialogue to find a peaceful and negotiated solution to the crisis;
  • Kyung-wha Kang, the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, has briefed the Security Council on humanitarian access in Syria, and said that the call made by the Security Council in Resolution 2139 to put an end to the indiscriminate employment of weapons in populated areas continues to be ignored;
  • the Special Adviser on Yemen, Jamal Benomar, has met with Ahmed Bin Mubarak, Director of the Office of the President, who has been recently released yesterday by Ansarallah after Mr. Benomar’s continuous mediation efforts. The Special Adviser welcomed the release yesterday and remarked that this news would help reduce tensions and enable progress in ongoing negotiations that he has been facilitating. Mr. Benomar urged Ansarallah to undertake steps that would be in the best interest of all political sides and the people of Yemen;
  • the UN Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) launched an investigation after a violent protest yesterday in Gao, during which several people were reportedly killed, and called on all concerned to stay calm and refrain from any action that could distract from this investigation or divert further MINUSMA from its focus, which is to bring the parties to respect the ceasefire and resume political talks in Algiers - in particular, for parties to the Mali peace process to behave responsibly and to call on their supporters to refrain from more violence;
  • the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), is concerned by violent events in the centre of Pristina in recent days, noting that they have nothing to do with the exercise of the democratic right to express legitimate grievances, and said that it is the responsibility of the Kosovo Police to ensure public safety and to take appropriate action against individuals who abuse the inherent right to peaceful protest by committing inexcusable acts of violence and vandalism;
  • the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has warned that farmers in southern Malawi urgently need seeds and livestock after intense flooding;
  • the Deputy Secretary-General, Jan Eliasson, is participating in the Stockholm Peace Talks 2015 (see here and here) at the Swedish Parliament;

  • the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has launched in Geneva its largest appeal ever for US$3.1 billion to reach 62 million children at risk in humanitarian crises worldwide. That is a US$1 billion jump in funding needs since last year’s appeal (see also here);
  • International experts stressed the need to better manage lakes, rivers and streams that provide fish and freshwater to millions across the world at the Global Conference on Inland Fisheries, which concluded in Rome. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in developing countries only, more than 60 million people rely on them for their livelihood;
  • the Head of the UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), Martin Kobler, has welcomed the announcement by the Congolese Army of the beginning of military operations against the FDLR;

  • Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jens Toyberg-Frandzen briefed the Security Council on the situation in Nepal during its closed-door consultations yesterday under other matters, and expressed the UN’s increasing concern about the diminishing momentum for inclusive negotiation on the new constitution to be adopted by consensus;

The “Wronging Rights” blog has commented:
“The International Commission of Inquiry for CAR has apparently recommended the establishment of a tribunal to try international crimes committed during the recent conflict there. Is this not exactly why we did this whole ICC thing?”, and
“America is super-sad that an extremely old, repressive Saudi Arabian dude had died. Don’t worry though, he’s been replaced by another extremely old Saudi Arabian dude, who will almost certainly be just as good at repressing people”. Bit more on this - from another source - here.

and, from other sources:

Remember that, in general, every ‘bad’ news story is something that requires:

  • (i) clearing of all negative energy associated with the event directly (e.g., pain, fear, etc on the part of the direct victims) or indirectly (e.g., fear, overreactions, inappropriate reactions, or seeking to outdo others’ reactions in others reached via the media);
  • (ii) healing of those harmed;
  • (iii) that those responsible be found through BPLF [1] means and brought to BPLF justice (if otherwise, as the means shape the end, the result will a society that is lessened and a strengthening of the so-called ‘law of the jungle’ [2]); and
  • (iv) that BPLF inspiration be given to enable all to rise above this, and take BPLF actions that will ensure a BPLF prevention of a recurrence, in the sense that USA President John F Kennedy talked of “true and lasting peace”.

Thus, every one of these ‘bad news’ stories is an opportunity – but, furthermore, so are many of the ‘good’ news stories, which often requires nonBPLF units to be cleared to prevent blocking of improvements, to help those who are busting their guts and becoming exhausted trying to make good things happen, and to provide some much needed BPLF inspiration and encouragement –


Don’t be complacent :)

As a reminder, I started this meditation programme based on the idea of generating the energy of peace, as set out in the channelled teachings of “The Nine” in Phyllis V. Schlemmer's "The Only Planet of Choice" (see p. 279 - well, in my copy at least :) ), which was the follow up to the brilliant "Briefing for the Landing on Planet Earth" by Stuart Holroyd [2]. “The Nine” proposed getting twelve (or a minimum of three) people to meditate for eighteen minutes (or a minimum of nine minutes) at 9 PM Sunday in Jerusalem, which is based on using the Magickal Principle of Harmony (of time), from the Watery Magickal Law of Frequency, and the Magickal Principle of Effect, from the Earthy Magickal Law of Strength and Common Sense. In other words, get everyone working together, at the same time, and as many people as possible, for as much impact as possible.

Now, that is valid, but getting people to work at the same time across the world is an incredibly difficult proposition – and, in my experience (including for multinational companies in my day job), leads to fewer people taking part. That experience also includes my time at the Correllian Shrine of the Crystal Web, where one member (not me) pointed out that they had found that having people perform work at the same hour by their local time can build up a wave of energy going around the entire planet, which is the Magickal Principle of Dynamism from the Fiery Magickal Law of the Taijitu. That worked well there, and so I have adopted it for these meditations. I also am happy for every person who wants to contribute to do so, rather than waiting until there is a group of a minimum size, which relies on harmony of focus being a way of overcoming physical separation (which is the Magickal Principle of Magickal Distance, from the Airy Magickal Law of Distance).

“The Nine” are the first source I can remember talking about Balanced Positive, which is where I get the term BPLF [1], but:

   I also include the use of clearing, so there is more than one difference to the original proposal.

However, I agree that the more people who join in, the better.

I would also like to point out that other people have been working on the use of coordinated, group meditation for beneficial effect, including the Lucis Trust's Triangles network (which has been running for many decades, since before World War Part Two, I think), the Correllian Tradition's 'Spiritual War for Peace' (begun in 2014), the Healing Minute started by the late, great Harry Edwards (held at 10Am and 10PM local time each day, and one can pay to be officially registered. This also has been running for decades); and a Druid ritual for peace, to be performed at each Full Moon (begun in 2014, I think).

To further set the mood for this work, here are a couple of quotes from this surprising article:

“External armed interventions tend to extend the duration of civil wars and even worse, increase the number of civilians killed. A country has a more than 40% chance of relapsing into civil war within 10 years if the conflict is resolved through violent means”;
“Admittedly, a political struggle is not a panacea for every type of violence, but nonviolent organizing and mobilizing against violent actors have proven to be historically twice as effective as and three times shorter than armed struggle, not to mention almost 10 times more likely to bring about a democratic outcome within 5 years after the end of the conflict than its violent counterpart.”

Ongoing military conflicts are listed at, and include (as of Wednesday 21st January, 2015):

This can be viewed as a map at (keep in mind that nations involved have been coloured in completely, whereas the conflict may be in only a part of that nation).

Finally, don’t forget the Shield of Hope. This area is formed by (part or all of) the South Atlantic Ocean, Southern and Eastern Africa (including both sources of the Nile), the Indian sub-continent (including the Himalayas) and the Indian Ocean, shown in gold on this week’s energy map, and the aim is to ensure this area consistently has BPLF energy at or above 7 by the time Neptune leaves Pisces, on around 30th March, 2025 (a date which has an eclipse the day before). If you wish to do a little more coordinated action on a positive strategic front, I'm also planning on routinely sending BPLF energy to Hong Kong, Tunisia, and Mexico, which show potential as "outposts of the BPLF”, and I wish to encourage their change for the better. Furthermore, I am currently sending BPLF energy from that area through the Red Sea and Suez Canal, into the Mediterranean, and thence to the connected Black Sea.

I have a simplified blogiography of posts related to this work here.


[1] BPLF = Balanced Positive (spiritual) Light Forces. See here and here for more on this.
[2] Please see here and my post "The Death of Wikipedia" for the reasons I now recommend caution when using Wikipedia. I'm also exploring use of h2g2, although that doesn't appear to be as extensive (h2g2 is intended - rather engagingly - to be the Earth edition of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy").

My "blogiography" (list of all posts and guide as to how to best use this site) is here, and my glossary/index is here.

I started this blog to cover karmic regression-rescue (see here and here), and it grew ... See here for my group mind project, here and here for my "Pagans for Peace" project (and join me at 9 PM on Sunday, wherever you are, to meditate for peace), and here for my bindrune kit-bag. I also strongly recommend learning how to flame, ground and shield, do alternate nostril breathing, work with colour, and see also here and be flexible.

I am a Walker upon the Path of Balanced Positivity, seeking Spiritual Maturity.

  • neither eloquence nor inarticulateness inherently indicates correctness, but, as words can kill, the right to freedom of speech comes with a DUTY to be as well-informed, objective and balanced as you can be.
  • Gnwmythr's Stropping Strap: Occam's Razor only works if  the simplest solution is actually recognised as being the simplest, rather than the one that best fits one's bigotries being labelled 'simplest'.
  • I mourn the desecration of the term 'Light Worker' by commercial interests, and the warping of the word 'Light' away from 'Clear Light' by the "White Lighters".
  • Our entire life experience, with all the many wondrous and varied people, places and events in it, is too small a sample for statistical reliability about Life.
  • May the world of commerce and business be recognised to be a servant, not a master, of the lives of people.
  • Being accustomed to interacting via certain rules makes those rules neither right nor universal.
  • Like fire to the physical, emotions to the soul make a good servant, and a bad master.
  • The means shape the end.
  • My favourite action movie of all time is "Gandhi", although I've recently come across "Invictus" and might put that one in to that category. However, I loathe the stereotypical action movie - and, for similar reasons, I loathe many dramas, which are often emotionally violent, more so in some cases than many war films.
  • All of the above - and this blog - could be wrong, or subject to context, perspective, or state of spiritual evolution ...

Human dignity is the inherently cumulative holistic combination of human rights, wellbeing and potential, and all actions or interaction which promote, realise or facilitate same. The converse also applies: whatever degrades, diminishes or robs humans of dignity, is inherently undignified.

The “purpose” of spiritual evolution is not the attainment of “spiritual perfection” - not in the sense of not having to evolve further, at any rate, since there is no such thing. We need to evolve in order to grow - but we can take rest breaks (hopefully well earned :) ) along the way. No, the “purpose” of evolution is, rather, to perfect our ability to learn, and thus grow.

Our greatest struggle with, to borrow from pop culture, the Jedi-Sith scale, is not with the Sith, whether they are hiding or not: it is with the annoying, snotty-nosed, heroine/hero-worshipping little kid who keeps intruding, stopping us from being cool enough to be with our heroines/heroes, the big kids ...

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Females, get over 'cute'. Get competent. Get trained. Get capable. Get over 'cute'. And those of you who are called Patty and Debby and Suzy, get over that. Because we use those names to infantalise females – we keep females in their 'little girl' state by the names we use for them. Get over it. If you want to be taken seriously, get serious.

There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.
