Carla Lisbeth Rueckert-McCarty: The Instrument/Channel That Ra Speaks Through

Carla L. Rueckert (McCarty)
was born in 1943 in Lake Forest, Illinois. She completed undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Louisville in 1966 and master’s degree studies in Library Service in 1971.

She served as librarian and bibliographer to college and school libraries for six years.

She was a meditator with the group Don started in early 1962, and became partners with Don in L/L Research in 1968. In 1970, she turned full-time to assisting Don with his research.

She read and abstracted books and periodicals, and did correspondence and writing for Don. In 1974, she began channeling and continued unceasingly in that effort until she was stopped in 2011 by a spinal fusion surgery.

During four of those thirty-seven years of channeling, 1981 – 1984, Carla served as the instrument for the Ra Contact. In 1987, she married Jim McCarty and together they continued the mission of L/L Research. Carla passed into larger life on April 1, 2015.

Jim McCarty’s eulogy for Carla Lisbeth Rueckert

Carla Lisbeth Rueckert-McCarty was born on July 16, 1943 in Lake Forest, IL. Carla was a child prodigy. At the age of 3 she could read the newspaper, speak French, and read music.

She would have started singing in the church choir then, but she wasn't strong enough to hold the Hymnal all the way through the processional, until the next year when she was four years old.

She was also the friendliest little girl her mother had ever seen. When they would take the bus to go downtown and shop, little Carla would wander up and down the aisle speaking to everyone who was on the bus.

She did not know a stranger. Her mother was mortified. 

When she was born her left eye was pointed at her brow, and it was about a year later when surgery was able to correct the defect, and then she started wearing glasses.

A fascinating experience occurred because she had to wear glasses at such an early age.

One day, when she was 2 years old, and when it was time for her to take her afternoon nap, her mother put her in her crib next to the window and closed the Venetian blinds. Before she went to sleep, Carla took her glasses off and put them between the blinds which were drawn for her nap.

Then she laid down and saw that there was light coming through the slit in the Venetian blinds. When it went through her glasses it made a beam of light that she was able to use to slide out of her body and go to what seemed like a magic forest. The animals would communicate with her, colors were more vivid, and when she went to the center of the forest, there she would see Jesus.

He didn't look like the paintings you usually see. His hair was long, matted, and dusty from the road.

His robe was dusty too, and he never spoke a word. But when he held her hand and looked into her eyes, she immediately knew what unconditional love was.

This experience occurred many times over the next few years. When she was five years old she told her mom and dad about the experience, and they told her that it was not real.

It was in her mind. That she had made it up. So the experience never happened again.

But her devotion to Jesus as her Lord and Savior began then and never wavered throughout her life. And from that point on, love would become her way of looking at the world.

Those two parts of this experience never changed for her.

Ra's Comments on Carla (The Instrument/Channel)

The Law of One, Book I, Session 1
January 15, 1981


Questioner: Will you be available for communication?

Can we call on you in the future?


Ra: I am Ra. We have good contact with this instrument because of her recent experiences with trance. 

She is to be able to communicate our thoughts in your future. 

However, we advise care in disturbing the channel for a few moments and then the proper procedure for aiding an instrument who has, to some extent, the need of re-entering the mind/body/spirit complex which the instrument has chosen for the life experience of this time/space. 

Do you understand how to nurture this instrument?

Questioner: No. Could you explain it?

Ra: We suggest first a brief period of silence. 

Then the repetition of the instrument’s vibratory complex of sound in your density which you call name. 

Repeat until an answer is obtained

Then the laying on of the hands at the neck region for a brief period so that the instrument may recharge batteries which are not, shall we say, full of the essence of this particular field at this time. 

And finally, a gift of water into which the love of all present has been given. 

This will restore this entity, for her distortions contain great sensitivity towards the vibrations of love and the charged water will effect comfort. 

Do you now understand?

Questioner: Not completely.

Ra: I am Ra. We search your mind to find the vibration (nickname). 

It is this vibration from you which contains the largest amount of what you would call love. 

Others would call this entity (first name). 

The charging of the water is done by those present placing their hands over the glass and visualizing the power of love entering the water

This will charge that very effective medium with those vibrations.

This instrument is, at this time, quite fatigued. 

However, her heart is such that she continues to remain open to us and useful as a channel. 

This is why we have spent the time/space explaining how the distortions of what you may call fatigue may be ameliorated.

Under no circumstances should this instrument be touched until she has responded to her name

I do not wish to take this instrument beyond her capacity for physical energy. It grows low

Therefore, I must leave this instrument. 

I leave you in the glory and peace of unity. 

Go forth in peace, rejoicing in the power of the one Creator. 

I am Ra.

The Law of One, Book I, Session 2

Questioner: Consider them asked. I don’t have anything to go on.

What is the proper use of this instrument? What should we do?

What should we do to maximize her ability and her comfort?

Ra: I am Ra. We are pleased that you have asked this question for it is not our understanding that we have the right/duty to share our perceptions on any subject but philosophy without direct question.

However, this mind/body/spirit is not being correctly used and therefore is experiencing unnecessary distortions of body in the area of fatigue.

The vibrations may well be purified by a simple turning to the circle of One and the verbal vibration while doing so of the following dialogue:

Question: “What is the Law?”
Answer: “The Law is One.”
Question: “Why are we here?”
Answer: “We seek the Law of One.”
Question: “Why do we seek Ra?”
Answer: “Ra is an humble messenger of the Law of One.”

Both Together:
“Rejoice then and purify this place in the Law of One.
Let no thought-form enter the circle we have walked about this instrument, for the Law is One.”

The instrument at this time should be in trance.

The proper alignment is the head pointed twenty degrees north-by-northeast
.
This is the direction from which the newer or New Age distortions of love/light, which are less distorted, are emanating, and this instrument will find comfort therein.

This is a sensitive instrument, by which we mean the distortions which enter her mind/body/spirit complex come from any of her senses.

Thus, it is well to do the following:
Place at the entity’s head a virgin chalice of water.
To the center, the book most closely aligned with the instrument’s mental distortions which are allied most closely with the Law of One, that being the Bible that she touches most frequently.
To the other side of the Bible, a small amount of cense, or incense, in a virgin censer.
To the rear of the book symbolizing One, opened to the Gospel of John, Chapter One,
a white candle.
The instrument would be strengthened by the wearing of a white robe.
The instrument shall be covered and prone, the eyes covered.

We feel that, though this is a complex of activity/circumstance and may seem very distorted from a purposeful teach/learning experience, these elaborations on the technique of trance will ease the mind distortions of those about the instrument as they perceive improvement in the instrument’s distortions with regard to fatigue.

We add only that if these teach/learning sessions are held during time/space during which your sunbody does not light your room that it is best to call the instrument before the lighting of the illuminatory mechanism.

I am Ra.

I leave you in the glory and the peace of the one Creator.

Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the one Creator.

In joy, we leave you. Adonai.

The Law of One, Book I, Session 21

Questioner: I have a couple of questions that I don’t want to forget to ask in this period, so I will ask them first.

The first question is: Would the future content of this book be affected in any way if the instrument reads the material that we have already obtained?

Ra: I am Ra. The future, as you measure in time/space, communications which we offer through this instrument have no connection with the instrument’s mind complex.

This is due to two things:

first,
the fidelity of the instrument in dedicating its will to the service of the infinite Creator;

secondly,
the distortion/understanding of our social memory complex that the most efficient way to communicate material with as little distortion as possible, given the necessity of the use of sound vibration complexes, is to remove the conscious mind complex from the spirit/mind/body complex so that we may communicate without reference to any instrument’s orientation.

Questioner: Do you use the instrument’s vocabulary or your own vocabulary to communicate with us?

Ra: I am Ra. We use the vocabulary of the language with which you are familiar.

This is not the instrument’s vocabulary.

However, this particular mind/body/spirit complex retains the use of a sufficiently large number of sound vibration complexes that the distinction is often without any importance.

Session 22, February 10, 1981

Questioner: The instrument would like to ask a couple of questions of you.

The instrument would like to know why she smells the incense at various times during the day at various places?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument has spent a lifetime in dedication to service.

This has brought this instrument to this nexus in space/time with the conscious and unconscious distortion towards service, with the further conscious distortion towards service by communication.

Each time, as you would put it, that we perform this working our social memory complex vibrational distortion meshes more firmly with this instrument’s unconscious distortions towards service.

Thus we are becoming a part of this instrument’s vibratory complex and it a part of ours.

This occurs upon the unconscious level, the level whereby the mind has gone down through to the roots of consciousness which you may call cosmic.

This instrument is not consciously aware of this slow changing of the meshing vibratory complex.

However, as the dedication on both levels continues, and the workings continue, there are signals sent from the unconscious in a symbolic manner.

Because this instrument is extremely keen in its sense of smell this association takes place unconsciously, and the thought-form of this odor is witnessed by the entity.

Questioner: Secondly, she would like to know why she feels more healthy now that she has begun these sessions and feels more healthy as time goes on?

Ra: I am Ra. This is a function of the free will of the entity.

This entity has, for many of your years, prayed a certain set of sound vibration complexes before opening to communication.

Before the trance state was achieved this prayer remained within the conscious portion of the mind complex and, though helpful, was not as effective as the consequence of this prayer, as you would call this vibrational sound complex, which then goes directly into the unconscious level, thus more critically affecting the communication from the spiritual complex.

Also, this entity has begun, due to this working, to accept certain limitations which it placed upon itself in order to set the stage for services such as it now performs.

This also is an aid to re-aligning the distortions of the physical complex with regard to pain.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 18
Session 30, February 24, 1981

Questioner: The instrument would like to know if you could tell her whether or not this item which is called Sam Millar’s polarizer would help her physical well-being.

Could you do that?

Ra: I am Ra. As we scan the instrument we find anomalies of the magnetic field which are distorted towards our abilities to find narrow band channel into this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex.

The polarizer of which you speak, as it is, would not be helpful.

A careful reading of this instrument’s aura by those gifted in this area, and subsequent alterations of the magnetizing forces of this polarizer, would assist the entity, Sam, in creating such a polarizer that would be of some aid to the instrument.

However, we would suggest that no electrical or magnetic equipment not necessary for the recording of our words be brought into these sessions, for we wish no distortions that are not necessary.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 62

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Before we begin may we request that a circle be walked about this instrument and that then each of the supporting group expel breath forcibly, approximately two and one-half feet above the instrument’s head, the circle then again being walked about the instrument.

(This was done as directed.)

Ra: I am Ra. We appreciate your kind cooperation

Please recheck the alignment of perpendicularity and we will begin.

(This was done as directed.)

Ra: I am Ra. We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you tell me what was wrong or what caused the necessity for the rewalking of the circle and the purpose for the expelling of the breath?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument was under specific psychic attack at the time of the beginning of the working

There was a slight irregularity in the words verbalized by your sound complex vibratory mechanisms in the protective walking of the circle

Into this opening came this entity and began to work upon the instrument now in trance state, as you would call it. 

This instrument was being quite adversely affected in physical complex distortions.

Thus the circle was properly walked. 

The breath of righteousness expelled the thought-form and the circle again was walked.

Questioner: What was the nature of the thought-form or its affiliation?

Ra: I am Ra. This thought-form was of Orion affiliation.

Questioner: Was the attack successful in creating any further distortion in the instrument’s physical complex?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: What is the nature of this distortion?

Ra: This thought-form sought to put an end to this instrument’s incarnation by working with the renal distortions which, although corrected upon time/space, are vulnerable to one which knows the way to separate time/space molding and space/time distortions which are being unmolded, vulnerable as before the, shall we say, healing.

Questioner: What detrimental effect has been done?

Ra: I am Ra. There will be some discomfort

However, we were fortunate in that this instrument was very open to us and well-tuned. 

Had we not been able to reach this instrument and instruct you, the instrument’s physical vehicle would soon be unviable.

Questioner: Will there be any lasting effect from this attack as far as the instrument’s physical vehicle is concerned?

Ra: I am Ra. This is difficult to say

We are of the opinion that no lasting harm or distortion will occur.

The healer was strong and the bonds taking effect in the remolding of these renal distortions were effective. 

It is at this point a question of two forms of the leavings of what you may call a spell or a magic working; the healer’s distortions versus the attempt at Orion distortions; the healer’s distortions full of love; the Orion distortions also pure in separation

It seems that all is well except for some possible discomfort which shall be attended if persistent.

Questioner: Was the opening that was made in the protective circle planned to be made by the Orion entity? 

Was it a specific planned attempt to make an opening, or was this just something that happened by accident?


Ra: I am Ra. This entity was, as your people put it, looking for a target of opportunity

The missed word was a chance occurrence and not a planned one.

We might suggest in the, shall we say, future, as you measure space/time, as you begin a working be aware that this instrument is likely being watched for any opportunity

Thus if the circle is walked with some imperfection it is well to immediately repeat

The expelling of breath is also appropriate, always to the left.

Questioner: Would you expand on what you just said on the expelling of the breath? 

I’m not quite sure of what you mean.


Ra: I am Ra. The repetition of that performed well at this working is advisable if the circle is walked in less than the appropriate configuration.

Questioner: But you mentioned the expelling of the breath to the left, I believe. 

Would you tell me what you meant by that?

Ra: I am Ra. It is as you have just accomplishedthe breath being sent above the instrument’s head from its right side to its left.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do for the instrument after she comes out of the trance to help her recover from this attack?

Ra: I am Ra. There is little to be done

You may watch to see if distortions persist and see that the appropriate healers are brought into contact with this mind/body/spirit complex in the event that difficulty persists. 

It may not

This battle is even now being accomplished. 

Each may counsel the instrument to continue its work as outlined previously.

Questioner: Who would the appropriate healers be, and how would we bring them in contact with the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. There are four

The difficulty being at all noticed as bodily distortion, the one known as (name of spiritual healer) and 
the one known as (name of spiritual healer) may work upon the instrument’s bodily complex by means of the practices which are developing in each entity. 
Given persistence of distortion, the one known as (name of allopathic healer) shall be seen. 
Given the continued difficulty past the point of one of your cycles called the fortnight, the one known as (name of allopathic healer) shall be seen.

Questioner: Does the instrument know who these people are, (name) and (name)? 

I don’t know who they are?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: Is that the sum total of what we can do to aid the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. 

We may note that the harmonies and loving social intercourse which prevails habitually in this group create a favorable environment for each of you to do your work.

Questioner: What priority, shall I say, does the Orion group place on the reduction of effectiveness or elimination of effectiveness of this group with respect to activities on planet Earth at this time? 

Can you tell me that?


Ra: I am Ra. This group, as all positive channels and supporting groups, is a greatly high priority with the Orion group

This instrument’s bodily distortions are its most easily unbound or unloosed distortion dissolving the mind/body/spirit complex if the Orion group is successful; this particular group, having learned to be without serious chinks, may we say, in mind and spirit complex vibratory patterns

In other channels other chinks may be more in evidence.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 64

Questioner: Can you tell me why the slight error made in the ritual starting this communication two sessions ago allowed the intrusion by an Orion affiliated entity?

Ra: I am Ra. This contact is narrow band and its preconditions precise

The other-self offering its service in the negative path also is possessed of the skill of the swordsman. 

You deal in this contact with, shall we say, forces of great intensity poured into a vessel as delicate as a snowflake and as crystalline.

The smallest of lapses may disturb the regularity of this pattern of energies which forms the channel for these transmissions.

We may note for your information that our pause was due to the necessity of being quite sure that the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument was safely in the proper light configuration or density before we dealt with the situation. 

Far better would it be to allow the shell to become unviable than to allow the mind/body/spirit complex to be shall we say, misplaced.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 74

Questioner: Could you please describe the trance state? 

I am somewhat confused as to how, in a trance, pain can affect the instrument since I was of the opinion that there would be no feeling of pain by the bodily complex in the trance state?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. 

The instrument has no awareness of this or other sensations

However, we of Ra use the yellow-ray activated physical complex as a channel through which to speak

As the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument leaves this physical shell in our keeping it is finely adjusted to our contact.

However, the distortion which you call pain, when sufficiently severe, mitigates against proper contact and, when the increased distortion is violent, can cause the tuning of the channel to waver

This tuning must then be corrected which we may do as the instrument offers us this opportunity freely.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know why twice during the “Benedictus” portion of the music she sang in a group concert that she experienced what she believes to be a psychic attack?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not a minor query.2 

We shall first remove the notations which are minor

In the vibrating, which you call singing, of the portion of what this instrument hallows as the Mass which immediately precedes that which is the chink called the “Hosanna” there is an amount of physical exertion required that is exhausting to any entity

This portion of which we speak is termed the “Sanctus.” 

We come now to the matter of interest

When the entity Jehoshuah3 decided to return to the location called Jerusalem for the holy days of its people it turned from work mixing love and wisdom and embraced martyrdom which is the work of love without wisdom.

The “Hosanna,” as it is termed, and the following ”Benedictus,” is that which is the written summation of what was shouted as Jehoshuah came into the place of its martyrdom. 

The general acceptance of this shout,

Hosanna to the son of David! Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” 

by that which is called the church has been a misstatement, an occurrence which has been, perhaps, unfortunate for it is more distorted than much of the so-called Mass.

There were two factions present to greet Jehoshuah

firstly
a small group of those which hoped for an earthly king

However, Jehoshuah rode upon an ass stating by its very demeanor that it was no earthly king and wished no fight with Roman or Sadducee.

The greater number were those which had been instructed by rabbi and elder to make jest of this entity
for those of the hierarchy feared this entity who seemed to be one of them, giving respect to their laws and then, in their eyes, betraying those time-honored laws and taking the people with it.

The chink for this instrument is this subtle situation which echoes down through your space/time and, more than this, the place the Hosanna” holds as the harbinger of that turning to martyrdom

We may speak only generally here

The instrument did not experience the full force of the greeting which it correctly identified during the “Hosanna” due to the intense concentration necessary to vibrate its portion of that composition.

However, the “Benedictus” in this particular rendition of these words is vibrated by one entity

Thus the instrument relaxed its concentration and was immediately open to the fuller greeting.

Questioner: The chink then, as I understand it, was originally created by the decision of Jesus to take the path of martyrdom? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is, in relation to this instrument, quite correct. 

It is aware of certain over-balances towards love, even to martyrdom but has not yet, to any significant degree, balanced these distortions. 

We do not imply that this course of unbridled compassion has any fault but affirm its perfection

It is an example of love which has served as beacon to many.

For those who seek further,
the consequences of martyrdom must be considered, for in martyrdom lies the end of the opportunity, in the density of the martyr, to offer love and light

Each entity must seek its deepest path.

2 It may seem that there is an excessive amount of personal and rather melodramatic material about psychic attack included here. We considered long and hard before deciding not to delete it. 

Our reason—Ra seems to suggest that any “light worker” will, if successful in this work, attract some sort of negatively oriented greeting.

Therefore, we wish to share our experiences and Ra’s discussion of them, in hopes that the information might be helpful.

3 Ra has previously identified this name as the name of Jesus in biblical times.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 41
Session 75, October 31, 1981

Questioner: I felt that this session was advisable before the instrument has her hospital experience. She wished to ask a few questions, if possible, about that.

First, is there anything that the instrument or we might do to improve the hospital experience or to aid the instrument in any way with respect to this?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

There are ways of aiding the mental/emotional state of this entity with the notation that this is so only for this entity or one of like distortions.

There is also a general thing which may be accomplished to improve the location which is called the hospital.

The first aiding has to do with the vibration of the ritual with which this entity is most familiar and which this entity has long used to distort its perception of the one infinite Creator.

This is an helpful thing at any point in the diurnal period but is especially helpful as your sun body removes itself from your local sight.

The general improvement of the place where the performance of the ritual of the purification is to be performed is known.

We may note that the distortion towards love, as you call this spiritual/emotional complex which is felt by each for this entity, will be of aid whether this is expressed or unmanifest as there is no protection greater than love.

Questioner: Do you mean that it would be valuable to perform the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram in the room in which she will be occupying in the hospital?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: I was wondering about the operating room.

That might be very difficult.

Would it be helpful there?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

We may note that it is always helpful.

Therefore, it is not easy to posit a query to which you would not receive the answer which we offer.

This does not indicate that it is essential to purify a place.

The power of visualization may aid in your support where you cannot intrude in your physical form.

Questioner: I see the way to do this as a visualization of the operating room and a visualization of the three of us performing the banishing ritual in the room as we perform it at another location.

Is this the correct procedure?


Ra: I am Ra. This is one correct method of achieving your desired configuration.

Questioner: Is there a better method than that?

Ra: I am Ra. There are better methods for those more practiced.

For this group, this method is well.

Questioner: I would assume those more practiced would leave their physical bodies and, in the other body, enter the room and practice the ritual.

Is this what you mean?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know if she can meditate in the hospital without someone holding her hand. Would this be a safe practice?

Ra: I am Ra. We might suggest that the instrument may pray with safety but only meditate with another entity’s tactile protection.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know what she can do to improve the condition of her back as she feels it will be a problem for the operation?

Ra: I am Ra. As we scan the physical complex we find several factors contributing to one general distortion experienced by the instrument.

Two of these distortions have been diagnosed; one has not; nor will the entity be willing to accept the chemicals sufficient to cause cessation of this distortion you call pain.

In general we may say that the sole modality addressing itself specifically to all three contributing distortions, which is not now being used, is that of the warmed water which is moved with gentle force repeatedly against the entire physical complex while the physical vehicle is seated.

This would be of some aid if practiced daily after the exercise period.

Questioner: Did the exercise of the fire performed before the session help the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. There was some slight physical aid to the instrument.

This will enlarge itself as the practitioner learns/teaches its healing art.

Further, there is distortion in the mental/emotional complex which feeds the vital energy towards comfort due to support which tends to build up the level of vital energy as this entity is a sensitive instrument.

Questioner: Was the exercise of the fire properly done?

Ra: I am Ra. The baton is well visualized.

The conductor will learn to hear the entire score of the great music of its art.

Questioner: I assume that if this can be fully accomplished that exercise will result in total healing of the distortions of the instrument to such an extent that operations would be unnecessary. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: What else is necessary, the instrument’s acceptance?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

The case with this instrument being delicate since it must totally accept much which the limitations it now experiences cause to occur involuntarily.

This is a pre-incarnative choice.

Questioner: You probably can’t answer this, but are there any suggestions that you could give with respect to the instrument’s coming hospital experience that could be of benefit for her?

Ra: I am Ra. We may make one suggestion and leave the remainder with the Creator.

It is well for each to realize its self as the Creator.

Thusly each may support each including the support of self by humble love of self as Creator.

Questioner: Is the exercise of the fire best for the instrument, or is there anything better that we could do other than the things that you have already suggested to aid the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. Continue as you are at present.

We cannot speak of the future as we may then affect it, but there is a great probability/possibility if you follow the path which you now tread that more efficacious methods for the entire group will be established.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 76

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first please give me an indication of the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is in a state of physical complex bankruptcy which has existed for some of the measure you call time.

The vital energies are normal with a strong spiritual complex counterpart and will lending substance to the mind/body/spirit complex energy levels.

Questioner: Will our continued communication with Ra be deleterious to the physical energies of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. We may answer in two modes.

Firstly, if the instrument were thusly dedicated to this use with no transfer of energy of physical complex nature it would begin to call upon the vital energy itself and this, done in any substantive measure, is actively deleterious to a mind/body/spirit complex if that complex wishes further experience in the illusion which it now distorts.

Secondly, if care is taken, firstly, to monitor the outer parameters of the instrument, then to transfer physical energy by sexual transfer, by magical protection, and, lastly, by the energetic displacements of thought-forms energizing the instrument during contact there is no difficulty in that there is no worsening of the instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex distortions of strength/weakness.

It is to be noted that the instrument, by dedicating itself to this service, attracts greetings of which you are aware.

These are inconvenient but, with care taken, need not be lastingly deleterious either to the instrument or the contact.

Questioner: Of the three things that you mentioned that we could do for the instrument’s benefit, would you clarify the last one?

I didn’t quite understand what you meant.


Ra: I am Ra. As the entity which you are allows its being to empathize with any other being, so then it may choose to share with the other-self those energies which may be salubrious to the other-self.

The mechanism of these energy transfers is the thought or, more precisely, the thought-form for any thought is a form or symbol or thing that is an object seen in time/space reference.

Questioner: Has our use of the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram been of any value and what is its effect?

Ra: I am Ra. This group’s use of the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram has been increasingly efficacious.

Its effect is purification, cleansing, and protection of the place of working.

The efficacy of this ritual is only beginning to be, shall we say, at the lower limits of the truly magical.

In doing the working those aspiring to adepthood have done the equivalent of beginning the schoolwork, many grades ahead.

For the intelligent student this is not to be discouraged; rather to be encouraged is the homework, the reading, the writing, the arithmetic, as you might metaphorically call the elementary steps towards the study of being.

It is the being that informs the working, not the working that informs the being.

Therefore, we may leave you to the work you have begun.

Questioner: Would it be beneficial for us to perform the banishing ritual more in this room?

Ra: I am Ra. It is beneficial to regularly work in this place.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 77

Questioner: Was the instrument under attack just prior to this session?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: Is there anything that we could do to help protect the instrument from these attacks prior to the session?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: What could we do?

Ra: I am Ra. Your group could refrain from continuing this contact.

Questioner: Is that the only thing that we could do?

Ra: I am Ra. That is the only thing you could do which you are not already attempting with a whole heart.

Questioner: I have three questions that the instrument asked me to ask which I will get out of the way first.

She wants to know if the preparation for her hospital experience could be improved if she should ever have to repeat it?


Ra: I am Ra. All was done well with one exception.

The instrument was instructed to spend space/time contemplating its self as the Creator.

This, done in a more determined fashion, would be beneficial at times when the mind complex is weakened by severe assaults upon the distortions of the body complex towards pain.

There is no necessity for negative thoughtforms regardless of pain distortions.

The elimination of such creates the lack of possibility for negative elementals and other negative entities to use these thought-forms to create the worsening of the mind complex deviation from the normal distortions of cheerfulness/anxiety.

Questioner: The instrument would also like to know if what we call tuning could be improved during times when we do not communicate with Ra?

Ra: I am Ra. That which has been stated in regard to the latter question will suffice to point the way for the present query.

Questioner: Finally, she wishes to know why several days ago her heart rate went up to 115 per minute and why she had extreme pain in her stomach?

Was that an Orion greeting?

Ra: I am Ra. Although this experience was energized by the Orion group the events mentioned, as well as others more serious, were proximally caused by the ingestion of certain foodstuffs in what you call your tablet form.

Questioner: Can you tell me what these tablets were, specifically?

Ra: I am Ra. We examine this query for the Law of Confusion and find ourselves close to the boundary, but acceptably so.

The substance which caused the bodily reaction of the heartbeat was called Pituitone by those which manufacture it.

That which caused the difficulty which seemed to be cramping of the lower abdominal musculature but was, in fact, more organic in nature was a substance called Spleentone.

This instrument has a physical body complex of complicated balances which afford it physical existence.

Were the view taken that certain functions and chemicals found in the healthy, as you call it, body complex are lacking in this one and, therefore, simply must be replenished, the intake of the many substances which this instrument began would be appropriate.

However, this particular physical vehicle has, for approximately twenty-five of your years, been vital due to the spirit, the mind, and the will being harmoniously dedicated to fulfilling the service it chose to offer.

Therefore, physical healing techniques are inappropriate whereas mental and spiritual healing techniques are beneficial.

Questioner: Is there any technique that we could use that we have not been using that would be beneficial for the instrument in this case?

Ra: I am Ra. We might suggest, without fractiousness, two.

Firstly, let the instrument remove the possibility of further ingestion of this group of foodstuffs.

Secondly, each of the group may become aware of the will to a greater extent.

We cannot instruct upon this but merely indicate, as we have previously, that it is a vital key to the evolution of the mind/body/spirit complex.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 78

Questioner: I would like to ask the reason for this session having been longer than most previous sessions and also if there is anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument was given far more than the, shall we say, usual amount of transferred energy.

There is a limit to the amount of energy of this type which may, with safety, be used when the instrument is, itself, without physical reserves.

This is inevitable due to the various distortions such as we mentioned previously in this working having to do with growing dorsal discomfort.

The alignments are fastidious.

We appreciate your conscientiousness.

In order to enhance the comfort of the instrument it might be suggested that careful manipulation of the dorsal area be accomplished before a working.

It is also suggested that, due to the attempt at psychic attack, this instrument will require warmth along the right side of the physical complex.

There has been some infringement but it should not be long-lasting.

It is, however, well to swaddle this instrument sufficiently to ward off any manifestation of this cold in physical form.

I am Ra. I leave you, my friends, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, merrily rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 80

Questioner: Thank you. 

Could you please give me the condition of the instrument?


Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is experiencing mild fluctuations of the physical energy complex which are causing sudden changes from physical energy deficit to some slight physical energy. 

This is due to many, what you may call, prayers and affirmations offered to and by the instrument offset by continual greetings whenever it is feasible by the fifth-density entity of whom you are aware.

In other respects, the instrument is in the previously stated condition.

Questioner: I had to leave the room for a forgotten item after we performed the banishing ritual.

Did this have a deleterious effect on the ritual or the working?


Ra: I am Ra. Were it the only working the lapse would have been critical.

There is enough residual energy of a protective nature in this place of working that this lapse, though quite unrecommended, does not represent a threat to the protection which the ritual of which you spoke offers.

Questioner: Has our fifth-density visitor been less able to affect the instrument during our more recent workings?

Ra: I am Ra. We shall answer in two parts

Firstly, during the workings themselves the entity has been bated to a great extent

Secondly, in the general experiential circumstances of your space/time experience this fifth-density entity is able to greet this entity with the same effectiveness upon the physical body complex as always since the inception of its contact with your group. 

This is due to the several physical complex distortions of the instrument.

However, the instrument has become more mentally and spiritually able to greet this entity with love thereby reducing the element of fear which is an element the entity counts as a great weapon in the attempt to cause cessation, in any degree, of the Ra contact.

Questioner: What is the reason for the fact that the entity is able to act through physical distortions that are already present as opposed to being unable to act upon an entity who has no physical distortion at all?

Ra: I am Ra. The key to this query is the term, distortion

Any distortion
be it physical, mental, or spiritual in complex nature, may be accentuated by the suggestion of one able to work magically; that is, to cause changes in consciousness

This entity has many physical distortions

Each in the group has various mental distortions

Their nature varies

The less balanced the distortion by self-knowledge
the more adeptly the entity may accentuate such a distortion in order to mitigate against the smooth functioning and harmony of the group.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 81

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first tell me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The physical complex energy is in deficit at this particular space/time nexus due to prolonged psychic accentuation of pre-existing distortions.

The remainder of the energy complex levels are as previously stated.

Questioner: Is this the reason for the instrument’s feeling of uninterrupted weariness?

Ra: I am Ra. There are portions of your space/time in which this may be said to be symptomatic of the psychic greeting reaction.

However, the continual weariness is not due to psychic greeting but is rather an inevitable consequence of this contact.

Questioner: Why is this an inevitable consequence?

What is the mechanism of this contact that creates this weariness?


Ra: I am Ra. The mechanism creating weariness is that connection betwixt the density wherein this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex is safely kept during these workings and the altogether variant density in which the instrument’s physical body complex resides at this space/time.

As the instrument takes on more of the coloration of the resting density the third-density experience seems more heavy and wearisome.

This was accepted by the instrument, as it desired to be of service.

Therefore, we accept also this effect about which nothing of which we are aware may be done.

Questioner: Is the effect a function of the number of sessions, and has it reached a peak level or will it continue to increase in effect?

Ra: I am Ra. This wearying effect will continue but should not be confused with the physical energy levels, having only to do with the, as you would call it, daily round of experience.

In this sphere those things which are known already to aid this instrument will continue to be of aid.

You will, however, notice the gradual increase in transparency, shall we say, of the vibrations of the instrument.

Questioner: I didn’t understand what you meant by that last statement.

Could you explain it?

Ra: I am Ra.

Weariness of the time/space nature
may be seen to be that reaction of transparent or pure vibrations with impure, confused, or opaque environs
.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 83

Questioner: Could you please tell me why the instrument now gains weight after a session instead of losing it?

Ra: I am Ra. To assume that the instrument is gaining the weight of the physical bodily complex due to a session or working with Ra is erroneous.

The instrument has no longer any physical material which, to any observable extent, must be used in order for this contact to occur.

This is due to the determination of the group that the instrument shall not use the vital energy which would be necessary since the physical energy complex level is in deficit.

Since the energy, therefore, for these contacts is a product of energy transfer the instrument must no longer pay this physical price.

Therefore, the instrument is not losing the weight.

However, the weight gain, as it occurs, is the product of two factors.

One is the increasing sensitivity of this physical vehicle to all that is placed before it, including that towards which it is distorted in ways you would call allergic.

The second factor is the energizing of these difficulties.

It is fortunate for the outlook of this contact and the incarnation of this entity that it is not distorted towards the overeating as the overloading of this much distorted physical complex would over-ride even the most fervent affirmation of health/illness and turn the instrument towards the distortions of illness/health or, in the extreme case, the physical death.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 86

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Would you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument’s distortion towards physical energy complex deficit has slightly increased since the last asking.

The vital energy levels have had significant calls upon them and are somewhat less than the last asking also.

Questioner: What was the nature of the significant calls upon the vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. There are those entities which entertain the thought distortion towards this entity that it shall remove for the otherselves all distortions for the other-self.

This entity has recently been in close contact with a larger than normal number of entities with these thought complex distortions.

This entity is of the distortion to provide whatever service is possible and is not consciously aware of the inroads made upon the vital energies.

Questioner: Am I correct in assuming that you are speaking of incarnate third-density entities that were creating the condition of the use of the vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: What is the present situation with our fifth-density service-toself polarized companion?

Ra: I am Ra. The period which you may call crisis remains.

Questioner: Can you tell me anything of the nature of this crisis?

Ra: I am Ra. The polarity of your companion is approaching the critical point at which the entity shall choose either to retreat for the nonce and leave any greetings to fourth-density minions or lose polarity.

The only other potential is that in some way this group might lose polarity in which case your companion could continue its form of greeting.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 88

Questioner: Of all of the things that you have mentioned before for replenishing these energies, at this particular space/time, which would be most appropriate for the replenishing of both of these energies?

Ra: I am Ra. As you note, there are many factors which contribute to the aiding of the strength distortions and the amelioration of distortions towards weakness in this instrument.

We suggest to each that those many things which have been learned be conscientiously applied.

We would single out one physical distortion for discussion.

The fourth-density negative minions which visit your group at this time are energizing a somewhat severe complex of imbalances in the manual appendages of this instrument and, to a lesser extent, those distortions of the thoracic region.

We suggest care be taken to refrain from any unnecessary use of these appendages.

As this instrument will not appreciate this suggestion we suggest the appropriate discussion.

Questioner: I assume from this that our fifth-density negative companion is still on R and R. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. Your fifth-density companion is not accompanying you at this time.

However, it is not resting.

Questioner: Is the censer that we have provided all right?

It does go out prior to the end of the session.

Would it be better if it did not go out prior to the end of the session?


Ra: I am Ra. The new configuration of the censer is quite helpful to the more subtle patterns of energy surrounding these workings.

It would be helpful to have a continuously burning amount of cense.

However, the difficulty is in providing this without overpowering this enclosure with the amount of effluvium and physical product of combustion.

Having to choose betwixt allowing the censer to finish its burning and having an overabundance of the smoke, we would suggest the former as being more helpful.

Questioner: The instrument has mentioned what she refers to as bleed-through or being aware, during these sessions sometimes, of the communication.

Would you comment on this?


Ra: I am Ra. We have the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument with us.

As this entity begins to awaken from the metaphorical crib of experiencing light and activity in our density it is beginning to be aware of the movement of thought.

It does not grasp these thoughts any more than your third-density infant may grasp the first words it perceives.

The experience should be expected to continue and is an appropriate outgrowth of the nature of these workings and of the method by which this instrument has made itself available to our words.

Questioner: The instrument mentioned a recurrence of the need to go to the bathroom prior to the session.

Is this because of the low vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. It is part of the cause of the lowered vital energy level.

This entity has been sustaining a level of the distortion you call pain which few among your peoples experience without significant draining of the energies.

Indeed, the stability of the entity is notable.

However, the entity has thusly become drained and further has felt other distortions such as those for a variety of experiences accentuated, for this is one means of balancing the inward-looking experience of the physical pain.

Due to concern for this entity such activities have been discouraged.

This has further drained the entity.

The will to be of service to the Creator through the means of offering itself as instrument in these working, therefore, was given an opportunity for the testing of resolve.

This entity used some vital energy to fuel and replenish the will.

No physical energy has been used by the instrument, but the vital energies were tapped so that this entity might have the opportunity to once again consciously choose to serve the one infinite Creator.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 89

Questioner: I have two questions, the first of which is: during the last intensive meditation here the instrument experienced very strong conditioning from an entity which did not identify itself and which did not leave when she asked it to.

Would you tell us what was occurring then?

Ra: I am Ra. We find the instrument to have been given the opportunity to become a channel for a previously known friend.

This entity was not able to answer the questioning of spirits in the name of Christ as is this instrument’s distortion of the means of differentiating betwixt those of positive and those of negative orientation.

Therefore, after some resistance, the entity found the need to take its leave.

Questioner: Was this particular entity the fifth-density visitor that we have had quite often previously?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: Is he back with us at this time?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

The attempt to speak was due to the vigilant eye of the minions of this entity which noted what one may call a surge of natural telepathic ability upon the part of the instrument.

This ability is cyclical, of the eighteen-diurnal period cycle, as we have mentioned aforetimes.

Thusly, this entity determined to attempt another means of access to the instrument by free will.

Questioner: Was this what I would refer to as an increased ability to receive telepathically over a broader range of basic frequencies so as to include not only the Confederation but also this entity?

Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect.

The high point of the cycle sharpens the ability to pick up the signal but does not change the basic nature of the carrier wave.

Shall we say, there is greater power in the receiving antennae.

Questioner: This question may be meaningless but would a fifth-density entity of the Confederation who was positively polarized transmit on the same frequency as our negatively polarized fifth-density companion?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct and is the reason that the questioning of all contacts is welcomed by the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 92

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The condition of this instrument is slightly more distorted towards weakness in each respect since the previous asking.

Questioner: Is there a specific cause for this and could you tell us what it is?

Ra: I am Ra. The effective cause of the increased physical distortions has to do with the press of continuing substantial levels of the distortion you call pain.

Various vehicular distortions other than the specifically arthritic have been accentuated by psychic greeting and the combined effect has been deleterious.

The continued slight but noticeable loss of the vital energies is due to the necessity for the instrument to call upon this resource in order to clear the, shall we say, way for a carefully purified service-to-others working.

The use of the will in the absence of physical and, in this particular case, mental and mental/emotional energies requires vital energies.

Questioner: We have been trying to figure out how to provide the instrument with the swirling waters, and we hope to do that soon.

Is there any other thing that we can do to improve this situation?


Ra: I am Ra. Continue in peace and harmony.

Already the support group does much.

There is the need for the instrument to choose the manner of its being-ness.

It has the distortion, as we have noted, towards the martyrdom.

This can be evaluated and choices made only by the entity.

Questioner: What is the present situation with the negative fifth-density visitor?

Ra: I am Ra. It is with this group.

Questioner: What prompted it to return?

Ra: I am Ra. The promptings were duple.

There was the recovery of much negative polarity upon the part of your friend of fifth density and at the same approximate nexus a temporary lessening of the positive harmony of this group.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do about the instrument’s stomach problem or constipation?

Ra: I am Ra. The healing modes of which each is capable are already in use.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. The support group is functioning well.

The instrument, itself, might ponder some earlier words and consider their implications.

We say this because the continued calling upon vital energies, if allowed to proceed to the end of the vital energy, will end this contact.

There is not the need for continued calling upon these energies.

The instrument must find the key to this riddle or face a growing loss of this particular service at this particular space/time nexus.

All is well.

The alignments are exemplary.

I am Ra.

I leave you, my friends, in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, then, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

Session 94, August 26, 1982
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 45


Questioner: I have questions here from the instrument.

The first one is, “Is our fifth-density friend responsible for the instrument’s extreme distortion towards pain during and just after sessions?”

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do that we are not doing to remedy this situation so that the instrument does not experience this pain, or as much pain?

Ra: I am Ra. There Is little that can be done due to a complex of preexisting distortions.

The distortions are triple in the source.

There is the, shall we say, less than adequate work of your chirurgeons which allows for various distortions in the left wrist area.

There is the distortion called systemic lupus erythematosus which causes the musculature of the lower left and right arms to allow for distortions in the normal, shall we say, configuration of both.

Lastly, there is the nerve damage, more especially to the left, but in both appendages from the thoracic outlet.

In the course of the waking behavior the instrument can respond to the various signals which ring the tocsin of pain, thus alerting the mind complex, which in turn moves the physical complex in many and subtle configurations which relieve the various distortions.

Your friend greets these distortions, as has been stated before, immediately prior to the beginning of the working.

However, during the working the instrument is not with its yellow-ray chemical vehicle and thusly the many small movements which could most effectively aid in the decrease of these distortions are not possible.

Ra must carefully examine the mental configurations of the mind complex in order to make even the grossest manipulation.

It is not our skill to use a yellow-ray vehicle.

The weight of the cover has some deleterious effect upon these distortions in some cases and thus we mentioned that there was a small thing which could be done; that is, the framing of that which lifted the coverlet from the body slightly.

In order to compensate for loss of warmth the wearing of material warming the manual appendages would then be indicated.

Questioner: I immediately think of the instrument wearing long underwear under the robe that it now wears and an extremely light, white cover.

Would this be satisfactory?

Ra: I am Ra. Due to this instrument’s lack of radiant physical energy the heavier cover is suggested.

Questioner: Thank you. I didn’t mean to go over previous material. I should have phrased my question more carefully.

That is what I expected. I was trying to get a confirmation of my suspicion.

I suspected that. I will try to be more careful in questioning.

The second question from the instrument says, “While on vacation I uncovered a lot about myself not consciously known before.

It seems to me that I have coasted a lot on the spiritual gifts given at birth and never have spent any time getting to know my human self which seems to be a child, immature and irrational. Is this so?”

Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct.

Questioner: Then she says, “If this is so, this seems to be part of the riddle about the manner of my beingness that Ra spoke of.

I fear that if I do not work successfully on my human distortions I shall be responsible for losing the contact.

Yet also Ra suggests the over-dedication to any outcome is unwise.

Could Ra comment on these thoughts?”


Ra: I am Ra. We comment in general first upon the query about the contact which indicates once again that the instrument views the mind/body/spirit complex with jaundiced eye.

Each mind/body/spirit complex that is seeking shall almost certainly have the immature and irrational behaviors.

It is also the case that this entity, as well as almost all seekers, has done substantial work within the framework of the incarnative experience and has indeed developed maturity and rationality.

That this instrument should fail to see that which has been accomplished and see only that which remains to be accomplished may well be noted.

Indeed, any seeker discovering in itself this complex of mental and mental/emotional distortions shall ponder the possible non-efficacy of judgment.

As we approach the second portion of the query we view the possibility of infringement upon free will.

However, we believe we may make reply within the boundaries of the Law of Confusion.

This particular instrument was not trained, nor did it study, nor worked it at any discipline in order to contact Ra.

We were able, as we have said many times, to contact this group using this instrument because of the purity of this instrument’s dedication to the service of the one infinite Creator and also because of the great amount of harmony and acceptance enjoyed each by each within the group; this situation making it possible for the support group to function without significant distortion.

We are humble messengers.

How can any thought be taken by an instrument as to the will of the Creator?

We thank this group that we may speak through it, but the future is mazed.

We cannot know whether our geste may, after one final working, be complete.

Can the instrument, then, think for a moment that it shall cease in the service of the one infinite Creator?

We ask the instrument to ponder these queries and observations.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 103
June 10, 1983

Questioner: I didn’t mean to cover previously covered material.

I was hoping-to add to this anything that we could do to specifically focus on at this time, the best possible thing that we or the instrument could do to improve these energies, the salient activity.

Ra: I am Ra. Before responding we ask your vigilance during pain flares as the channel is acceptable but is being distorted periodically by the severe physical distortions of the yellow-ray, chemical body of the instrument.

Those salient items for the support group are praise and thanksgiving in harmony.

These the group has accomplished with such a degree of acceptability that we cavil not at the harmony of the group.

As to the instrument, the journey from worth in action to worth in esse is arduous.

The entity has denied itself in order to be free of that which it calls addiction10.

This sort of martyrdom, and here we speak of the small but symbolically great sacrifice of the clothing, causes the entity to frame a selfhood in poorness which feeds unworthiness unless the poverty is seen to be true richness.

In other words, good works for the wrong reasons cause confusion and distortion.

We encourage the instrument to value itself and to see that its true requirements are valued by the self.

We suggest contemplation of true richness of being.

10 Carla made a New Year’s resolution to give up buying clothes for herself for one year.
