RINGMASTER BARON- Channeled 10/14/98

Front Page

2015 Archives

Archivist Notes: This session marked the beginning of a period where Tia had to leave her duties as ring mistress to spend time during pregnancy in a time displacement sabbatical to speed up a difficult process of birth. The Baron, at a crossroads of his career was trying several options before making up his mind on what to do now that his time as an active combat pilot had ended. We saw back in the "Energy Baseball" session that took place a month later that his skills as a ringmaster had dramatically improved. 

   The Baron gets the session started with a review of the choices offered him now that combat was no longer an option.  His preference was to go out in combat while teaching a lesson, exactly how his life ended later the next year. His ability to handle the ringmaster duties was enhanced once he had his pilot helmet brought to help with its technology. He makes way next for Karra who talks about helping The Baron with a medical issue and a person on the web for the conferences we'd been looking to contact. The Baron then gets into his role as ringmaster with a Captain Kirk saying from "Star Trek 3" to express his feelings towards the Grays. Alana finishes up side one with a retelling of her initial meeting with Bunny while on a trip to Sirius. She also gives us an  excellent insight into animal training from her perspective from a higher dimension. She offers tips on a number of animals from cats all the way up to whales.

    Alana wraps up her discussion on animal training on side two but not before her girlfriend caused a bit of a distraction with a technician in the channeling room on the base causing The Baron to issue an edict for the next time he would take on the ringmaster role. Omal uses most of the side to cover a number of subjects such as possible future session leaders and making The Baron a permanent member of the base. Working from a corrected MJ12 report, I quizzed Omal on some of the reverse engineering of UFO's being conducted and theorizing on how or if the government works with other alien races. He also helps with his take on how perception changes reality and visa versa. Spoiler alert, the key is taking the time factor into account. The Baron ends the session by relating what happens to a pilot's ship when he dies or retires form combat duty.

Russ: yeah, command root different but at least this way with a helmet on you’ll feel more comfortable.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: if only a little disoriented and go, “huh?”

The Baron: ja, danka.

Russ: my pleasure, my pleasure. Excellent, so we’re going to try as a ringmaster here and….

Russ: ahh.

The Baron: they offer me two choice.

Russ: okay.

The Baron: retire and........not know word.

Russ: retire in old age?

The Baron: nein, nein, not known.

Russ: well I’m not good with that either. Well if you tell Karra, Karra will tell me and I’ll..

The Baron: ahh, danka.

Russ: then I’ll know. Because you’ll know the Sirian, she’ll know the Sirian, she’ll know the English and she’ll tell me.

The Baron: fräulein ambassador say inanuity.

Russ: boy, that didn’t clear anything up.

The Baron: inanuity, nein nein. Nevermind, choice one.

Russ: ahh.

The Baron: choice two, be grounded, pilot teacher. Explain life as pilot, highest victor.

Russ: right.

The Baron: or my choice add in….

Russ: go out in blaze of glory?

The Baron: go out teaching lesson.

Russ: ahhh. The only problem is, you wouldn’t go out, nobody could beat you.

The Baron: I think could.

Russ: well it'd be tough.

The Baron: pick fight of odds of 20 plus to one?

Russ: you’d be a while looking for those odds though.

The Baron: ja but never forgot.

Russ: right.

The Baron: if I go choice one, fade away and be just name.

Russ: uh-huh.

The Baron: choice two, same but longer. Choice three, never forgot. Your Baron, on planet….

Russ: never forgot.

The Baron: Manfred?

Russ: yep, still the most famous ace known to man.

The Baron: ja, on your planet.

Russ: right.

The Baron even though little ace now.

Russ: right.

The Baron: 80, eh? Not big.

Russ: no, but still it’s…..the time of our history that he performed it in the flying machines he performed it in made him an ace.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: I mean nowadays, it’s nothing to pull a trigger and launch a missile but what he did was, that was pretty unordinary.

The Baron: uh-huh, I think so. So as a ringmaster…..

Russ: uh-huh.

The Baron: duty are put people to speak ja?

Russ: uh-huh ja.

The Baron: and keep order.

Russ: excellent, you’re doing great so far.

The Baron: danka.

Russ: once you got the helmet on you of course, that helps a lot.

The Baron: ja, ja. It so clean and clinical in room.

Russ: oh yeah.

The Baron: uh-huh.

are you in the channeling room or....?

The Baron: ja.

Russ: oh okay.

The Baron: I put on speaker danka.

Russ: danka.

(Karra joins the session)

Karra: hi hon.

Russ: hi sweetheart, how’s it going?

Karra: not too bad.

Russ: excellent love.

Karra: for first time in a long time I get to go second.

Russ: yeah, that is the first time in a long time.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: I can’t remember the……..well I do remember the last time.

Karra: yes it was a while.

Russ: yes it was.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: anyway, we had a lot of good fun today.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: what do you think of today’s progress?

Karra: you’re doing good.

Russ: well we had a lot of…..well what I want to know is, I want to get your input on Jasper.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and what do you think on that one, where do you want to take that?

Karra: I think it’s worth pursuing.

Russ: uh-huh.

Karra: I also think that after the session you need Mark to fire his computer back up and pull up something that he saw.

Russ: oh really?

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, something that highly is relevant?

Karra: yes, very much so.

Russ: well, Ashtar did say that now is the time where we’re going to be getting a lot of this contacts.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: the other thing is, working with this gentleman in Australia..

Karra: ahh yes Jasper.

Russ: Jasper.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: now he has got…..he’s going to putting channeling’s on his page.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and I’m not sure where he’s going to get his information, I forgot to ask him that but I was going to wait until I got a reply from him so I could kind of ask him that kind of stuff and see what kind of information he's getting. Apparently he’s talking to Ashtar.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: what’s he go by? Oh yeah, Commander Soltec. Anyway, Australia is a good hotbed for psychic stuff right now…..

Karra: yes it is.

Russ: and you know this is the funniest thing I wanted to ask you about in fact.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: when Ashtar was telling me that we would be contacted by somebody of these other groups?

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: what was my first thought?

Karra: your first thought was a little bit in disbelief. Sort of like, “no way.”

Russ: well okay, that one.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: all right my second thought was Australia….

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: yeah I realized I think that has been my whole thought process the whole while I’d be contacted from someone in Australia.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: probably because of…

Karra: well the presence of Ashtar is pretty powerful and influential.

Russ: true, I’m sure he was like……he already had this figured out as far as he knew where the groups were and what groups are working the most on the web and that kind of stuff probably.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: all right so, I guess phase two will be to go ahead and start working on A, the domain name.......

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: two, editing these tapes and getting them off to the Sedona Journal of Emergence......

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and three, working on web searches for other groups.

Karra: yes.

Russ: okay, so basically we're just going to have to....I'll watch the site…

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and see what kind of additions he puts in there.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: right now it’s mostly just links and I should probably, once I start working with these other groups and start putting links in on their pages too. Well that’s important because right now that’s the most key is that I want to focus on these conferences and I want to focus on where we need to go to bring those to fruition.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and the basic key is communication between the various groups.

Karra: yes, it is.

Russ: otherwise, it’s not going to do any good. What I also need to do is, I need to get a hold of the Sedona Journal of Emergence after we get all the tapes and all things and make sure they're workable.

Karra: yes.

Russ: and I need to get a hold of Spirit Chat.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: René.

Karra: yes of course, for setting up and everything.

Russ: correct and I haven’t talked to him in a while and I think is important that right now I get back in touch with him.

Karra: you may want to make a donation as well.

Russ: Spirit Web?

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: good idea.

Karra: yeah, I had it before. God it is clinical in here, I know what I’m going to do.

Russ: put some plants in there?

Karra: no, I’m going to offer to host them at my residence.

Russ: good idea, excellent.

Karra: uh-huh, I’ve got the room.

Russ: yeah, we could do them in the main living room.

Karra: actually I was thinking more near to the kitchen.

Russ: oh.

Karra: that way everybody can get up to do what they used to do, go and get a drink, those that need drinks.

Russ: yeah, it’s the perfect place to host it.

Karra: well we’ve got that little study there.

Russ: hmm.

Karra: the one that isn't used, that is used occasionally.

Russ: true. Oh by the way, thanks for setting it up with the kids so I can see them when I get up in the morning.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, what else we got?

Karra: I’m trying to figure something out.

Russ: one thing I want to work on…..

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: either you or Omal but how perception creates reality?

Karra: uh-huh. I think it would be best that Omal handles that.

Russ: okay I’ll work with him on that.

Karra: okay.

Russ: anything else?

Karra: no, not at the moment.

Russ: okay. Oh yeah, I got all this stuff to work on too, let me check my notes real quick…..abductions, abductions, implants. Do you want to work with implants with me real quick?

Karra: okay.

Russ: okay, according to the stats I looking at from the report I got, one in 40 humans are implanted?

Karra: (snickers) okay?

Russ: theoretically, now I’m not saying this is true or even close to true, but I’m just talking on a theoretical basis.

Karra: you’re talking that the abductors are working…..

Russ: overtime.

Karra: and then some.

Russ: and then some. I mean there is 6 billion people on this planet, if one in 40 are implanted……now the math basically works out to about they’d have to implant one person every 15 minutes.

Karra: uh-huh so even by that simple bit of reasoning, guess what?

Russ: it can’t happen.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, now is there anything you can tell about this?

Karra: it goes with perception.

Russ: oh it does? Okay.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: yeah, because one of things that I’m really concerned with right now is how to perceive the world around me.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and all of us, I mean this is something that we’re all having to deal with. Like for example, today I had to do a lot of research on the Rainbow gatherings and the Rainbow Family and this is a group of people who I feel in the future really have their act together.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: they all basically live for a non-commercial enterprises, they share, they trade, they work with natural resources and alternative medicines and they work together for world peace.

Karra: yes, uh-huh.

Russ: a very great concept at least and one that I think it would be good to study a little bit more on that.

Karra: yes it would be, it would be. Anyway, I'm having The Baron going.....(taps her hand).....which I think means wrap it up.

Russ: okay. Anyway, well as far as all that goes…

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: then I feel like…..

Karra: I wish he would just say things instead of doing hand signals and stuff.

Russ: he’s probably used to that.

Karra: uh-huh, he is.

Russ: okay.

Karra: right and I need to work with him as well, gives me an opportunity to work on something.

Russ: okay.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: I got it my dear.

Karra: yeah, well you saw these hand twitch. Yeah okay.

Russ: have fun dear.

Karra: catch you later love.

Russ: okay sweetheart.

Karra: uh-huh.

(The Baron resumes his duties)

The Baron: ahh.

Russ: greetings Baron.

The Baron: danka.

Russ: and just the person I wanted to talk to too as a matter of fact.

The Baron: uh-huh.

Russ: you probably caught that last part with Karra, where we were talking about the abductions and the implants?

The Baron: ja.

Russ: and how they’re talking about one in 40 humans are abducted and implanted?

The Baron: (snickers) I think you speak bullshit?

Russ: yeah basically, that’s what I think too.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: because I know from what just your work you've done and talking to Taal…

(one of the base pilots)

The Baron: ja.

Russ: that it would be almost impossible to even get past you guys to do all this.

The Baron: next time I ringmaster?

Russ: uh-huh.

The Baron: I see if make possible.

Russ: okay excellent.

The Baron: he sprechen zie and you sprechen zie ja? Speaks.

Russ: oh yeah absolutely, that'd be great.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: because I haven't talked to Taal in a long time.

The Baron: I arrange.

Russ: oh thank you, that will be great. And that’s one thing that I want to work on is we’re working with these groups and we have to make better friends but at the same time…

The Baron: you make better friends. I lose many……I forgive for what done but not forget.

Russ: I don’t blame you.

The Baron: you have person fictional that say, “You Klingon bastards, you kill my son!!” I find very funny to watch but understand emotion.

Russ: right, right and he never forgave them.

The Baron: ahh, I.....

Russ: actually he did finally, he understood. Capt. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: I didn’t know you even watched that.

The Baron: it beamed out into space, listen on long flights.

Russ: good for a few laughs.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: okay, excellent. All right, well who’s next on board then tonight?

The Baron: I put on another young lady?

Russ: excellent.

The Baron: young lady boisterous but soft-spoken with friend.

Russ: ahh okay. I can think of a couple but it sounds like Leah.

The Baron: nein. Young lady that have auric flashes when Capt. Hasif around? (Lyka)

Russ: hmm, okay. Well I guess I’ll find out then real quickly.

The Baron: she sprech……she say you know her.

Russ: okay.

The Baron: I sprechen……..look for catchword?

Russ: oh okay.

The Baron: what right way to speak that? Catchword.

Russ: you mean the correct word?

The Baron: yeah for catchword.

Russ: oh.

The Baron: Omal have, “I be back.” Tia have……

Russ: oh, catchphrase.

The Baron: ja.

Russ: catchphrase, oh okay.

The Baron: I think of catch……what you say?

Russ: catchphrase.

The Baron: danka, catchphrase.

Russ: my pleasure.

(Alana joins the party)

Russ: hi Kiri, no? Lyka? No. Hmm, Alana?

Alana: yes?

Russ: ahh Alana, how you doing sweetheart?

Alana: do you want my honest answer?

Russ: no, but you can lie to me a lot.

Alana: nah, I'm not going to.

Russ: oh well.

Alana: I’m going to tell you the truth.

Russ: oh good.

Alana: very wet.

Russ: oh God. Well glad to hear it, just got through swimming with the dolphins?

Alana: you could say that.

Russ: well I’ll see if Karra can get you a towel. (laughs)

Alana: if she would....would do.

Russ: well excellent, excellent. I assume everything's going well then?

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: good and how’s Miranda my love?

(our daughter together and reincarnation of Karra's and Kiri's mother)

Alana: she’s doing well.

Russ: excellent.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: you know I’m coming up every day….

Alana: yes.

Russ: to see, ahh you do.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, I was hoping I would get to see her some time too, her and Kevin.

Alana: they’re both doing very well.

Russ: excellent, well I might try to stop down at the dolphin pool then and might come up.

Alana: uh-huh, Miranda’s going to be spending some time with Kiri. She’s getting very interested in taking things apart.

Russ: oh, getting that engineering sense huh?

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: excellent, excellent.

Alana: which I think might be a little bit hard for Kiri.

Russ: well I mean teaching young ones isn’t…..

Alana: well she’s getting more like my grandmother was in her mannerisms and stuff.

Russ: who, Kiri is?

Alana: no.

Russ: oh, Miranda is.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: oh, hmm. Oh I see what you mean.

Alana: yes.

Russ: oh I got it, old habits coming back.

Alana: uh-huh, I only have stories to go from but mum said that she’s getting very much like she remembers her.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: even how she likes to have her hair worn.

Russ: well good.

Alana: hopefully Kiri can handle it.

Russ: I have to admit it would probably be a little bit disconcerting.

Alana: uh-huh, I should imagine it would be. Anyway…..

Russ: yes my dear.

Alana: I’m here to talk about communications with animals.

Russ: excellent, excellent.

Alana: dealing with them in a spiritual way as well.

Russ: okay.

Russ: drafted at short notice. Mum said to me, "come down and talk" and this was like an hour ago.

Russ: ahh.

Alana: dragged me out of bed.

Russ: well you know mom....or Karra, she’s always got a reason for this.

Alana: she was lucky I answered.

Russ: oh.

Alana: I thought it might have been another friend.

Russ: another friend?

Alana: oh we've been having some fun. Oh, I’ve got to tell you.

Russ: what you got?

Alana: remember I took a little trip a few weeks ago?

Russ: yeah.

Alana: I got to meet an idol of mine.

Russ: what?

Alana: I’ve always missed her when she’s come to the base.

Russ: oh, who did you meet?

Alana: finally met Bunny in the flesh.

Russ: Bunny, you met Bunny.

Alana: literally in the flesh.

Russ: you hadn’t met her at the base?

Alana: no, I’ve always missed her.

Russ: how could you miss her? She’s probably the most single most dynamic person on the base when she gets there.

Alana: oh yes she is but I’ve always…….

Russ: I can’t imagine you missing her.

Alana: she taught me some interesting little things.

Russ: uh-hmm.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: that’s funny, when will we get to see her again?

Alana: probably after Christmas.

Russ: okay.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: good. She gets a school break then?

Alana: yeah.

Russ: excellent. Oh well I’m glad to hear you got to finally meet the one and only.

Alana: uh-huh. Bunny does not wear clothes.

Russ: huh?

Alana: very often.

Russ: oh.

Alana: she will wear a wrap, a short wrap at that. You know how high my sex drive is?

Russ: it seems to have gotten a little bit more than it was last time we talked.

Alana: well that was partly because I was with Bunny but….

Russ: oh, she taught you that move huh?

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: ahh okay.

Alana: she also taught me that pain, the right amount applied in the right places can be really exquisite.

Russ: oh, excellent.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: well that certainly must have been something that was a little shock for your girlfriend when you came back?

Alana: uh-huh, it was.

Russ: I can well imagine. All right dear, let’s…..what do we have on the table? Let’s go ahead and work with animals and communication.

Alana: okay yes sorry, I’m giving off those heavy vibes aren’t I?

Russ: yeah well I’ll keep you directed here dear.

Alana: okay, now one of the important things is communicating with animals is to understand that a lot of them function on emotions and instinct. They do not have a clear thought processes, there are exceptions. One of the surprising exceptions that are not highly thinking are the canine. The canine act primarily on learning patterns that are hammered in to them that if they do this, that happens, if they do that, this happens. So their behavioral patterns, although it appears intelligent and smart, is more along the lines of being rewarded in gift.

Russ: uh-huh.

Alana: felines on the other hand, a lot of them do actuate on instinct and emotions. The smaller variety of the domestic kind fall into two distinct categories, those that are aware and those that are instinctual with little awareness.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: now those that are aware tend to be more, not so much affectionate but more focused in on who they are more in tune with.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: for example, there is a feline that you have in your house that is very affectionate to one person and one person only.

(Mark's cat Joey)

Russ: uh-huh.

Alana: that feline is very aware, in fact I’ve seen that feline slouching around or more sneaking around up here from time to time.

Russ: uh-huh.

Alana: also you have another feline which is not so affectionate but is also a visitor here from time to time that comes up here more for spiritual companionship.

Russ: who’s that, Ganja?

(one of the house cats)

Alana: it’s brown, tan with black and is little.

Russ: brown, tan, black and is little.

Alana: uh-huh, always walks around with its tail like this.

Russ: hmm, it’s probably Ganja.

Alana: yea big, about yea tall. Really long legs. Anyway, felines that are more instinctual tend to be more affectionate because it is you, "I give you affection, you reward me by making me comfortable and giving me food. In return for that, I bring you gifts. I bring you freshly caught birds, freshly caught rodents."

Russ: right.

Alana: so it is that side. Now, as I am a marine biologist, whales. Whales are definitely sentient but like people, you have various different degrees of intelligence. Unfortunately, the bigger they are, the less intelligent they appear to be.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: you get down to the orcas. Orcas are highly intelligent, highly social, highly communicative and they travel around in family pods......

Russ: right.

Alana: and they’re very much in tune with each other. Going down even smaller, dolphins. Again, a lot of them travel in groups, are very social, very communicative and highly intelligent.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: so being able to communicate with them, you have to interact on their level, on their level of understanding. A dog, you communicate through short commands, signals and rewards. Felines, you communicate with through voice commands, emotions and rewards and gentle tones in the voice. Whales, now the big ones are difficult to communicate with, they may interact and they may not. Orcas will interact, dolphins will play. Orcas you interact with on a more of a spiritual level. The same with dolphins, you don’t have the ability to make the voice clicks and whistles and clacks and so on. That is hard for you to communicate. I have to wear a special device that makes it easier for me to make those noises but I know what they’re saying.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: okay?

Russ: okay. Now then with the orcas, aren’t you like a rather small treat for them?

Alana: no.

Russ: I mean you're about the same size as a seal.

Alana: nah, they wouldn’t go for me. They wouldn't go for a human.

Russ: why? I mean it’s…..how would they tell……I mean they know the difference I’m sure.

Alana: oh yes they did.

Russ: why would they not……?

Alana: by smell, by…..you don’t have the flesh content or the fat.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: or I don’t. I know you don’t. You’re not quite as skinny as you were.

Russ: true, thank goodness.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: but even in a wetsuit I look like seal.

Alana: no you don’t.

Russ: well, two legs yeah.

Alana: you have two legs, two arms that are much longer than a seal. You're shorter then some seals, you’re not as fat as most seals.

Russ: maybe a baby seal?

Alana: don’t even look anything like a baby seal.

Russ: oh, so they wouldn’t go for me. I haven’t heard of many orcas attacking humans.

Alana: I haven’t heard of any.

Russ: hmm, I’m sure there’s a story or two but I can’t…..

Alana: probably.
