      I went to a local community meeting sponsored by MoveOn.org yesterday on resisting Trump and the Republican administration (attended by about 100 people from around my neighborhood), and I came away with some ideas that gave me inspiration and optimism. I asked Troy to create this forum so these ideas can be shared, and so that others can share theirs. Here are my main takeaways from that meeting (other than our specific action items).
      Study the Process
      They had two speakers who emphasized the importance of understanding how to effect change in the government -- what are the processes, chain of command, deadlines, what to focus on, who to contact, etc. I think this is really important for those of us new to activism to understand, so that we know how to be most effective with our time and energy.
      Choose Your Focus
      Another point of emphasis was that most of us only have so much time between working and taking care of family, so we should focus on one or two issues depending on the time we have. Then devoting even just one hour a week to that issue can be powerful. During the meeting, we split the room of 100 people into 4 groups of different issues (by each person's preference), and each group tackled their own action items. I find that focus actually gives me a great deal of relief and empowerment. I had gone to another event soon after the election and joined a neighborhood action group as well as signed up for a bunch of non-profit organizations, but I quickly felt overwhelmed by the number of activities and concerns. The more focused approach works better for me, as we are leveraging our numbers anyway.
      Be Informed
      Once I felt the relief, I actually came home and started doing more reading on politics. I need to become more informed in order to participate more effectively, and I'd always avoided reading or watching politics because it was painful. But after this meeting I felt empowered enough to see the political news as information and not just react with fear and overwhelm.
      Reach Out to Red States
      Part of the reason why I wanted to post this on TLE is because I know some of you are in red or purple states. You actually have more power to influence Congress than those of us in blue states. Republicans are not a totally cohesive unit, and if your congressman or senator is on the fence about an issue, you can make a big impact by getting together with others to contact your representatives. One or two votes can make a difference on whether a bill passes. There were also good ideas for reaching out to Republican friends and relatives, but that's not entirely necessary if we can mobilize liberals in red states.
      So here are a couple of resources to read that I picked up from this meeting.  
      Becoming a Citizen Activist by Nick Licata -- He was one of the speakers at the meeting, and I felt inspired by his passion for the process. The book is about the process of how to go about influencing the government. I ordered the book but have not read it yet, so there may be a better book out there on the topic.
      Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda -- Written by former congressional staffers who saw the rise of the Tea Party and compiled a guide for how to influence Congress based on Tea Party tactics. It's free to download. I recall seeing this surface on FB, saved it, and promptly forgot about it. There are groups that have sprung up around this document and can be found through the same website.

      Ask Michael - December 4, 2016
      Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN
        Yes, Nan.   Nan: I would like to ask about the metaphysical dimension of uterine fibroids. There are at least biological, and, it seems, a genetic component of this, but what are the metaphysical causes or issues that relate to the problem?   Yes, fibroids can develop as part of the default risk of being in a body, but even when genetically predisposed, some will develop these and some will not. This is in great part due to the wounding that is being processed from some point in the life. In this case, it would tend to relate to any wounding around one's relationship to female energy, to creative energy, and to be female, particularly if the wounding was generated from an intimate relationship with a male, or someone with high male energy.   If that wounding moves into a state that is carried and not processed, it would eventually activate the predisposition.   Nan: Interesting -- among my family members with this issue, who herself was a high male energy soul was my mother, a male energy soul   You bring up a valid addition to the dynamic: if the individual, herself, has higher male energy and this is in conflict with the female energy, it can also activate.   Nan: Thanks. She was one of seven sisters and I believe all of them had the issue. I also have, but could easily identify myself as wounded by mother's high male energy.   To address this as a complement to any practical treatments and management, you can take a day to fully indulge in any activity, behavior, ideal, image that you identify as "female" or "feminine" and creative, nurturing. This may mean "dressing up" just for the sake of feeling "pretty," or wildly freeing any creative or sexual impulses.   Even if the reference is stereotypical, it is not so much about the truth of how female energy IS, but how you relate to what you think of female energy. You would want to look for how you see it when it is free and empowered.   Nan: Thanks!   NEXT   ConnorB: What is the nature of fictional characters?   ConnorB: By this I mean, what sort of consciousness do they have? I ask because I have been writing creatively for nearly fifteen years, and my characters have evolved to the point where I have trouble even viewing them as ‘characters’ – they are people, as real as the people I interact with in life.   ConnorB: It doesn’t even feel accurate to consider myself their creator – it feels like these characters existed on their own terms long before their story was even an idea in my head. Simply claiming to have merely ‘made them up’ doesn’t sound like the whole truth.   ConnorB: So do characters exist independently of the writer, on some level? I know anyone who has dabbled in writing will resonate with this question. (End Question)   We have a few responses to this:   ONE - Fictional characters can feel as real as any other relationship because the process by which one gets to know another person is nearly the same as that of creating a character, or even generating the reality of a character from someone else's creation. So much of what you experience about another person is more about what you think and feel about that person vs who and what that person is.   When it is another person there is independent feedback that helps hone your thoughts and feelings about that person, and this can contribute to the "realness" or the distance between you. When it is a character of one's creation, or the bringing to life of a character that has been created by someone, there is really only your fuel that gives life to that identity. This can feel almost as real, or even more real, than a "real" relationship.   Most of our students take on at least one lifetime of deep creative expression in some art where the creation is that of "characters," because that experience adds to the understanding of how Essence creates "you."   You are fully independent of your Essence, while intrinsically united.   So are the characters that one creates.   They are no different from sub-personalities in dimension and persistence.   Which brings us to TWO - when a writer creates characters that seem to have a life of their own, they often do.   By this we mean that they may be based on fully-formed Personalities from the writer's past, either of his or her own Essence, or that of another Essence or guide. They may be fully-formed Personalities that "never made it" to an incarnation and these are selected by the Personality to "give life" to these as fragments of the self.   And in any case like the above or similar, Astral fragments can often "step into" these templates and sustain the "life" of these characters for generations.   ConnorB: Wow.   This is not unusual for those who are in between lives, and wish to try out various Personality dynamics and life scenarios, but it is also common for the more exotic and wild creations to act as a kind of amusement park for Astral fragments.   Some of the great classics act as a kind of deep role-playing game for the Astral fragments who find these of interest, playing out such epics as Dune, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, etc.   ConnorB: Maybe one or two fragments exploring 50 Shades of Gray.   So while these are not sentient creations independent from you like a True Personality, they are "real" in the legitimate sense of being a template for lives, experiences, and knowledge. So they are "real" in that sense.   ConnorB: Thank you Michael, I will certainly explore this further with you in the future.   NEXT   Daniela: Could you please provide the Role/Casting, Soul Age/Level, Cadre/Entity for Vladimir Putin, President of Russia? Are you able to tell if Putin and Donald Trump have any agreements, monads, or past life resonance between them that could potentially influence their interactions with each other and hence affect global events?   This fragment is the 5th Level Young Warrior-Cast Priest from Cadre 10, Entity 3. The fragments in question share Agreements to "explore and expand personal power," and share positions in a Pentagon Configuration with a Task of "Refining Networks of Power."   Keep in mind that the paths that Configurations take often begin from "negative" points of exploration and then move from one extreme to another before finding the resolution.   Their interactions are well into affecting global events. The effects of the combined efforts of the King and the Priest in terms of these more fearful extremes of power are tapping into many who are locked into Chief Features, particularly those of Stubbornness, Self-Destruction, Greed.   We will be exploring these effects with our students across 2017.   NEXT   Bobby: I recently came across some video interviews of Dannion Brinkley whereby he discusses 3 of his near-death experiences and what he says he experienced once his consciousness left his body. It sounds like a Review of sorts. I'm wondering what your thoughts may be on his experiences/Review and how likely that would be without the full death experience?   We do not have to look specifically at this fragment to tell you that valid near-death experiences will often include Review, or more accurately a Preview Review. Depending upon the desire for breakthrough in the life, this Preview may be comforting, may be educational, may come as revelation, may come as a deep remembering, etc. While there are consistencies among those who experience these Previews, they are unique to each.   It is not the true Review, but tends to be relevant to what that Personality most needed or desired as fuel to continue in the life.   For those who have multiple instances of near-death, the Preview can move away from being only about its necessity for the fuel for return to life, but becomes a negotiable territory of overlapping and willful exploration.   Keep in mind that many valid near-death memories are prone to embellishment similar to the recall of dreams.   So details may be fabricated, but you can still extract the validity if it is there.   Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

      Troy Tolley, Channel
      Michael Chat – Open Floor
      [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your questions and as we understand it, Lori is first.
      [upstaate] I am asking for a Mini Energy Report for this month.
      [Michael_Entity] November marks the middle of the cycle emphasizing the processing of this year’s Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance on a collective level. This means that you have entered the psychological season, so to speak, which will allow the processing of the fears that are collectively generated in response to “inadequacies” and “vulnerabilities.” In most cases, this season of processing the collective fears is not done intimately, but played out in politics or larger-scale events.
      In this season, the emphasis on inadequacies and vulnerabilities has been glaringly evident in American politics.
      Even the concept of “Democracy” is being scrutinized to the point of revealing the absurdity of its lack of true implementation and weak points. There is a “quiet storm” brewing in the American (north) politics and November appears to be a pivotal month in defining how that will play out publicly. We are not speaking ominously, but simply stating the obvious: revelations are on the horizon and they will occur with grace or they will occur with tragedy, but probabilities show that they WILL occur; more specifically, a “domino-effect” of infrastructure collapse in what you call your current government (in the United States). When we state that that this “will” happen, we realize this word implies solid prediction, but we say that word in response to a 97% probability. In other words, the momentum is in place, regardless of how drastic a change might be made at this point, and is headed toward a “wall.” It is highly likely this momentum will hit that wall. At this time, we simply do not see your current President of the United States completing his term. We can also state this with some amount of unusual certainty because of the anticipation of those in the Astral; “all eyes” are focused for “the show.”
      To summarize the “mini-report,” then, in terms of world events: it appears most of you will find some kind of impact at some point as a result of the inadequacies and vulnerabilities being revealed within the current government of the United States. The pivotal period of time appears to be during this month, November, but the public results may not be obvious until later.
      On a more personal note, you may find yourselves walking through a period of time now wherein the flaws of OTHERS seem to be taking their toll on you. Distractions with the failures of OTHERS may be used to your advantage as a means to avoid your own flaws and vulnerabilities. This year’s passage through the season of Chief Features appears to have a stronger emphasis than usual. A great many things have happened in the world over your year that have left the public angry and in want of finding someone to blame. Some years move through the Chief Feature season with ease and other years are buried in its emphasis. This year’s months of October, November, and December may find each of you with at least one major challenge involving how to maneuver through the effects on you because of another person’s choices or actions. It is a powerful opportunity to explore your own Overleaves, how you respond to the flaws and choices of others as they impact you, and doing this from the angle of the positive poles and make a shift in the dynamic that would normally leave you trapped. Regardless of your own Chief Features, there will still be an emphasis around you in relation to the year’s chief features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance.
      The end of your year is always a passage through the evaluation of what you accomplished in the time that has passed since beginning of the “new year.” Therefore, November usually marks the painful passage of time wherein COMPARISONS begin to be your means of assessing your days. We suggest keeping check on your own Chief Features as you begin to find yourselves comparing. Comparing is a valid process of evaluation, but many of you use it against yourselves or against others. Reminding yourselves that it is a TOOL for use, not for abuse, will help in the month ahead.
      [Annsge] Deciding whether to follow up Lori’s question….What are the probabilities of a complete change in government? What will this change expose?
      [Annsge] In US gov’t?
      [Michael_Entity] The probabilities of a complete change are nearly inevitable, though most likely not fully implemented before another approximate 50 years. However, the current administration is precariously built in a way that as one member is: pulled into scrutiny, the entanglement from that person reveals other flaws, creating a near-cascade effect in revelation. The long-term change will be based on the exposure of a corrupt government whose impact upon the public is far more insidious and oppressive than ever considered possible. This is not sinister, but merely a result of withholding and hoarding of resources that have always been available. Much of what are concerns in the American culture and society are concerns that are utterly reversible within a single year, if resources were freed. The short-term change for which we see November as being pivotal is simply the revelation about the incompetence, manipulation, and deceit that permeates the current administration. We have always seen this presidency as the pivotal presidency that has the potential to end an outdated system of government, voting process, and public assistance.
      [Tmk1802] Back to basics. Is Male/Female ratio constant or does it change from life to life?
      [Michael_Entity] It is a constant. What changes is the ways in which this is expressed and the ways in which it is eventually balanced. The higher ratio is a good indication of how your incarnational process began, as Male bodies are 100% Male Energy and Female bodies are 100% Female Energy; therefore, if your ratio is higher Female, it is fairly safe to say that you began your incarnations in the bodies most comfortable. As the Essence evolves, so does the want for balance, so choosing bodies to counter your higher ratio begins at some point.
      Eventually, bodies are no longer the only means to bring balance and expression, but Events, Relationships, and Experiences are utilized.
      [Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself?
      [Tibtyk] And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious.
      [Michael_Entity] The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.”
      In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved.
      The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof.
      However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake.
      Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough.
      Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love.
      Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence.
      Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.”
      It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life.
      Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen.
      Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens.
      In all cases of experimentation YOU will be key.
      You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK.
      You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO.
      And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you.
      [llawryf121] I’ve posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”?
      [Michael_Entity] That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context.
      In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamourous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work.
      In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality.
      Or Manifesting Essence.
      The fusion of Personality and Essence into a cocreative process.
      We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system.
      They are the language of glamour
      [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively
      [Michael_Entity] Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar.
      [Carrot Wax 1] k, now my question has changed to extend this question to Sages and other roles :-)
      [Michael_Entity] The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality.
      This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible.
      In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him.
      The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.”
      Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak.
      The walls that isolate the Scholar in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.”
      Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories.
      For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas.
      How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed.
      We have already addressed this issue in a lengthy session in the past, offering insights for all Roles. We will include that in the transcript for this session.
      In that case, we believe we have addressed Matthew’s question for elaboration, and will respond to Suz’s question as the final question.
      Inherent in each Role, then is something we might call “The Great Lesson”. This is not a term we prefer, but it is one our channel found appropriate and we do not disagree, though more creative ways of seeing this will surely come from our sharing with you.
      Each Essence will have its “Great Lesson” and this ‘lesson’ will always recur each lifetime in some form. There will be no lifetime that does not struggle with this ‘lesson,’ however briefly or lengthily. Regardless of the dynamics of Personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge for a lifetime, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges. Essence sees this challenge from a very different perspective than does Personality and eagerly plays with this repetitive obstacle. These “Great Lessons” result from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane during the Astral and “between lives.” The body has to regain consciousness each lifetime, regardless of soul age, and seeks to “grow back” into the soul age last reached in the previous life. This “Great Lesson” is one way to ensure that at least some amount of conscious connection to Essence makes it into the Body, Personality, and Lifetime at some point.
      Each of these “Lessons” we mention as relevant to the Roles will appear applicable to each of you, regardless of your Role. This is because, in addition to how these Great Lessons relate to each Role, they will also embody the challenge of a Chief Feature. You may find you relate to a Great Lesson that is not relevant to your Role, because that extension. Each Role and Chief Feature, of course, by extension, relates to a Chakra, or Center, and this can also lead to connections. We suggest you only focus on your Role. Although you may relate to several Great Lessons, the greatest one will be the one related to your Role.
      We will begin with the Server.
      When a Server is conscious and connected to Essence, regardless of its struggles and fears in the life, its Great Lesson is in discovering that it can take care of other things, nurture other things, help other people, become tremendously effective in catering to the nuances of needs in other, BUT all the while being able to care for self. The Server connected to Essence and conscious of that connection chooses to take care of itself no matter what is happening in the life, knowing inherently that this is the only way to truly be successful in any endeavor of healing, care, and kindness to another.
      The Server who is not connected to Essence chooses not only to slack in its care of self, but loses its enthusiasm to offer care for others. This Server will emphasize and prove in its universe that things and people do not truly love, that there is only discord and that their own lives are not making a difference. This Sever will either shut down, or begin to use anger as its medium of expression into life; often resorting to Depression as its ultimate anger.
      They are Self-Deprecation, manifest. This Server is rooted in emphasizing its own and all others’ inadequacies, or lack of being. This can be overt or subtle, but it will show.
      The keys to bringing a Server back to a conscious connection to Essence (besides the universal, first two vital steps of recognizing and owning the choice for where you are, and then asking for help), is in doing anything physically stimulating. Running, jogging, going dancing, anything with dirt and the ground, and getting a massage. Anything that allows contact PHYSICALLY with what is considered the “outside world” and that provides data without judgment. The SERVER, more than any other Role, can often use the past as their only world and choose to gauge everything within that context, therefore, it is successful to release the past and choose experiences that bring the Server more “presence” by connecting them back to the life around them.
      Next we will comment on the ARTISAN.
      The Artisan who is conscious of and connected to Essence is one that has learned to allow happiness into the life. This may seem deceptively simple and universally applicable, but any true Artisan can tell you that it is one of their Great Lessons to learn to like receiving and indulging in the pleasures of this world.
      An Artisan who is connected and conscious with Essence has true joy and enthusiasm for the life, allowing room for whatever levels of prosperity and abundance are appropriate at that moment. They have admitted to themselves what they wanted, what they needed, and they are allowing themselves to have it, to create it.
      The Artisan that is disconnected or rejecting Essence feels their needs are too great, that they will never get what they deserve or are not worth the life used on them.
      The artisan disconnected from Essence is Self-Destruction, manifest. They have determined that they are not worth what they want. Artisans are clever and creative in their disconnection from Essence because they have helped to construct a culture that supports and rewards this behavior, even if unintentionally, but more out of obligation. This Artisan can extract from other fragments a false compassion and pity, but never anything of any real value to make the life seem “worth it” to them. The Artisan can endure for years and years in this state, far longer than any other role disconnected from Essence, because this state eventually requires others to reach out and care for them, even as they are not making changes, themselves. A tremendous amount of energy can be used throughout the life as they search for who the cause or the latest to be blamed for stealing their self-worth.
      Eventually, the Great Lesson can be learned and the life is transformed. At some point, and probably more dramatically than any other role, a shift in the life occurs. This brings the Artisan into a space that says YES to life, to what it wants, recognizes its needs and says they are worth the pursuit of whatever they choose. They finally grasp that they are allowed to enjoy their lives.
      Ways for the Artisan to connect to Essence in times of recognized disconnection are through any form of artistic expression, of course, though especially through painting or sculpting; making a concerted effort to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE; purchase things that feel fun and are usually labeled “trivial;” interact with small animals, or dance privately to music.
      Next we will comment on the WARRIOR.
      The Warrior when connected and conscious with Essence finds itself in many challenges against or within the life where there appear to be imbalances. A Warrior that is conscious recognizes that their very nature requires them to live intentionally and with purpose of action. This means, regardless of its tediousness or turbulence, they are always out to conquer something. The Warrior connected to Essence finds itself in many manifestations of chaos and disorder as a means to exercise and emphasize what is and isn’t Power or Empowering.
      More than any other role they are more perpetually in crisis of challenge because this is truly where their “heart” lies. It may not be acceptable or as “easy” as other roles’ experiences, or what the culture supports, but it is their world and it is vital. An interesting gauge for how connected a Warrior is to Essence is through observing the Warrior’s relationships. A connected Warrior develops strong, supportive social circles, while the disconnected Warrior leaves a trail of broken and failed relationships.
      The Warrior disconnected from, or rejecting of Essence feels that their life is one unrolling world of chaos and they determine they are just ‘lucky’ for what they have, relinquishing effort to make a path. More than any other role (even if arguably), the Warrior that is disconnected from Essence spends its life seeking approval and recognition, while consistently remaining in the shadows. The disconnected Warrior lays low, evades conflict, and depends on others heavily. The disconnected Warrior has a deep sense that at some point it needs to do or be something specific in order to be loved or recognized. Most of the time, this Warrior has no idea what that “something specific” is and will continue to close its circle of life down until it learns to make choices for itself, grasping that they are in control of their lives; this is their Great Lesson; that their life is THEIR OWN.
      The disconnected Warrior is Martyrdom manifest.
      This is another Role that can regain connection to Essence by incorporating or balancing with heavy physical activity. Making contact with life in a physical manner that brings data into the body emphasizing security and control, such as Tai Chi or the Alexander Technique, any sport requiring coordination, can all bring the Essence back into the picture. Asking to be held, allowing themselves to be held, or embracing someone important, can help as well.
      We will address the SCHOLAR now.
      The Scholar that is connected to Essence and is conscious has learned its Great Lesson, which revolves around the reality of shared love. This Scholar has realized with a great amount of profundity that they will not love another until they have sought to love themselves.
      As we have said, there are many of these Great Lessons you may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see these Lessons are definitively deeper for each particular Role when specifically considered. For instance, while all Roles must learn to Love, it remains a fact that all other Roles have an “easier” time loving and being loved than the Scholar does.
      The Scholar who is connected to Essence has realized they are whole and complete, that they like themselves and have decided to trust and open their hearts to their life. They recognize that ALL aspects of life are capable of being loved, even themselves and all of the hard times through which they have passed.
      When the Scholar is disconnected or rejecting of Essence, they do their best to ignore their lives, to resist the examination that not everything is fine. This Scholar refuses to examine their vulnerabilities and have not dealt with their shadow feelings, resulting in acts of dominance or power struggles. They have never experienced intimacy of any depth due to these things. They become adept at arguing their points, ignoring the pains of their past, destroying or deteriorating any relationship or person whom touches too closely to personal areas of pain and sensation.
      They are Stubbornness manifest.
      They, more than any other Role, truly fear what is called love. The disconnected Scholar will usually bring in a legitimate resource of love into their lives, but this is usually held at a distance and sought only out of need for refuge, sanctuary, and a place to safely rebuild or hold up the walls around their own hearts. It can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love that Scholar.
      Some suggestions for the Scholar to bring in more of Essence might be to talk to children about their perspective on life, actually play with children or play on a child’s playground. Seeking laughter of any kind brings Essence immediately back in for a Scholar. Seeking experience of the aroma and visuals of botanical gardens or observing the ocean can help, or having flowers within visual and olfactory range.
      We will address the SAGE now.
      The Sage in connection to Essence is the most obvious and closest to what the positive pole describes. They are TALKING.
      The Sage connected to Essence, regardless of what they are communicating, is at least communicating. They seek to express any and all feelings and thoughts as a means for communication. When they are angry, you know it; when they are sad, you know it; when they are happy, you know it; they will gladly tell you and everyone else.
      The Sage who is disconnected from Essence becomes silent.
      Of all the roles, the Sage is the most tender and fragile of all roles. We do not imply this negatively. This is simply because they are the “children” of our universe, and no physical age or soul age will ever change this; it is their “job.” This Role relates to communication, children, and the Intellectual Center or fifth (throat) Chakra. A child who has been driven or shunned into silence hangs his or her head to cover the vulnerable communication center of the throat. This same fragility and defense can be seen in all ages of a Sage, as well. When a Sage has gone silent they are rejecting Essence, literally losing consciousness. Forms of “silence” from a Sage can range through all forms of suppression. This means this Role, more than most, is susceptible to addictions and substance abuses; anything to redirect energy away from having to address what wants to be said.
      They are Greed manifest, as they fixate on something they feel they do not have enough of, and remain struggling to attain this at the expense of life and self.
      Their Great Lesson is in realizing their expression and feelings are ALWAYS important to SOMEONE, but that the legitimacy of their feelings is not dependent on being well-received.
      Ways for the Sage to regain consciousness and connection are through writing letters, reading personal journal entries to someone who will listen, sharing a personal story or poetry, trusting what you feel about a person when you first meet them, and singing out loud.
      We will address the PRIEST now.
      The Priest who has a connection to Essence realizes that life is full of many truths and each experience has its own truth. More than any other role, this role, when connected to Essence, has a deep, profound trust in life, knowing with true perception how to pass through the next moments and lead others through any confusion in life. Life is intuitively navigated.
      When disconnected, this Essence lives in a world of concepts and ideas, rational thinking and over-analysis. This would seem harmless, but the Priest disconnected from Essence enforces these rationales, ideas, and over-analysis to the point of destroying the life or misleading others as a means for false validation of their own beliefs. They lose their ability to adapt to the nuances of life and seek only to remain in a predefined, structured, and thought-out picture of life. This removes their ability to intuit and trust in life, but creates severe judgment and enforcement of fear. A great deal of effort and reaction will be used against any and all suggestions that conflict with the profound truths that they have concluded.
      This Role, more than any other Role, can make a lie become a profound, but false, “truth” about themselves, life, or others.
      They are Arrogance manifest.
      To help bring the Priest back into connection, we suggest to this Role, more than any other Role, to literally make time to communicate to what you consider to be your higher self, every day. We also suggest purchasing or making a set of cards with inspirational affirmations or a book of quotes that can be a “message” or “thought for the day”, for whenever in need. This will help lend insight from someplace beyond analysis.
      And finally, the KING, we will comment on.
      The King who has a connection to Essence is keenly aware of all possibilities within a life, and live with a sense of connection to all of its life. The King connected to Essence does not just live the life; it IS the life, as well. This King recognizes that it is the source of all of its life, through choice, creation, and even from a higher place. This King sees no separation based on time or space, but only the beautiful unfolding of a life as perfect, no matter what. They do not judge the life, themselves, or others for their position in it, but instead recognizes itself in everything around it. This King has dealt with what might be called its “dark side” and now sees through that same “darkness” in others, recognizing all of the illusions. Limitation is never seen as an obstacle, but as an important aspect of life to help direct growth.
      A King who has rejected Essence becomes highly separated from its life, separated within itself, and from others.
      Its Great Lesson is in acknowledging they are a PART of everything and everyone, not APART.
      This disconnected King is caught in circles of self-gratification and simple distraction for stimulation. They feel they, alone, are completely responsible for all achievements in life and resist any help in any form, in fact, sometimes violently. This King rejects people outright due to imperfections reflected about them and creates enormous amounts of Space and Time between those who are their most powerful support.
      They are Impatience manifest.
      This King who is rejecting of Essence will forever remain in a circle of development since they allow no other influences or support into their lives.
      Ways for a King to bring back a sense of connection to Essence is through visiting spiritual temples for moments of quiet and reflection, watching or reading information shared by spiritual leaders with whom they resonate. They can make changes in the life that reflects a commitment to the acknowledgement of the life force in all others, such as through vegetarianism or volunteer work. More than any other Role, we would have to doubly emphasize that this Role could benefit from ASKING FOR HELP.
      [freyaisissuz] We would like comment from Michael about exactly what is a secondary conscious channel with an agreement with Michael. Thanks
      [Michael_Entity] We are unclear as to what your question is.
      [freyaisissuz] What does Michael say is a ‘secondary conscious channel’ so students will better understand the concept?
      [Carrot Wax 1] is there a context this term was used in?
      [Michael_Entity] We do not recognize the phrase as being a part of our teaching, though one of our channels may have chosen it as a means to convey a concept.
      [freyaisissuz] It is information given to Al by a Michael channel.
      [kittlekats41] can you rephrase it Al?
      [llawryf121] probably should follow up with the original channel
      [upstaate] it was channeled that Al had an agreement with the Michaels, using the phrase, “as a secondary channel” A fragment will have an agreement to be a primary channel. What is a secondary? secondary conscious channel, that is
      [kittlekats41] would ‘conscious channel’ mean as opposed to a trance channel perhaps?
      [freyaisissuz] That’s how Al understood it, Kate.
      [Michael_Entity] We would suggest asking that channel, as this phrasing did not originate with us. We suspect this is a phrasing used by our channels to describe a fragment with whom we have agreements to channel through, but not on a largely, public scale. It is not uncommon for certain phrasing to be generated by the channel as a means to convey a concept we have not created phrases for, ourselves.
      [freyaisissuz] That makes more sense, he doesn’t care to go back to the previous channel.
      [kittlekats41] Would you have time perhaps to elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael?
      freyaisissuz: Excellent, much better phrasing, Kathryn – Al
      [Michael_Entity] We do not have time, but that is simply the nature of our plane.
      [kittlekats41] hehehe of course, silly me:-)
      [Michael_Entity] We will conclude here, but include a response to that final question for the transcript.
      (disclaimer: I am asking this questions as best I understood it, but I am uncertain if I conveyed it to Michael in the way the questioner meant it.)
      Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael?
      [Michael_Entity] We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.”
      “Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only primary philosophy.
      “Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students.
      “Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy.
      “Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy.
      “Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time.
      “Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself or herself. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us.
      “Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material.
      In some cases, there is overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student.
      Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.
