I would like to see a discussion of the 7 degrees of essence recognition and/or essence contact. I am not sure if that would be two different topics or one combined. I seem to notice varying degrees of recognition from weak to strong.
Kasia posted an article in Other Relationships[Excerpt from TT: 2011-07-06 POF] Martha: I understand the basics of cording, and ways to remove the “unwanted” cords, although you’ve said previously that all cords had at least some level of consent (otherwise famous people would be inundated, right?). There’s a feeling I have with certain people that I am somehow sensing their emotions, and I’ve wondered if that’s cording, and/or essence contact. Or just an active, deluded imagination. It doesn’t feel unwelcome. Is there a way to tell if you’ve somehow corded someone, or if they’ve corded you? Or if you are impolitely trying to cord someone? Michael: There are conscious and subconscious cords. ALL cords are permitted, but not all of them are consciously received or attached. No one can attach to another fragment without his or her consent on some level. Think of cording as similar to hearing or talking. A person naturally tends to permit anyone to talk to him or her, and even when active attention is not present, one tends to hear the talking around oneself. We do not choose the analogy of hearing and talking randomly, as cording is simply another version of the same. Martha: the feelings I'm asking about tend to have a strong emotional content, a sense of emotional communication, so I wasn't sure if it was some kind of essence contact, or cording Michael: To control who is saying what to you, and to control what you can and cannot hear around you, would be exhausting, so every Personality inherently allows a certain amount of flexibility in receiving and attaching via cording, as well. Those who tend toward a position of "celebrity" tend to have a great capacity for receiving cording, and to the degree that this is not managed, is often the degree to which the fragment tends toward escapism, addiction, breakdowns, crime, etc. Michael: One manages cording by bathing, showering, meditating, visualization, exercising, being in nature or exposing oneself to weather, such as wind, sun, etc. which all reset the cording to release the subconscious cords, and adjust the conscious cords. We share these details with you to clarify that you are not imposing upon anyone, if you feel you are sensing a resonance of emotion through cording. In most cases of resonance, where one is experiencing empathy, the cording is valid, and always conscious on the empathizer's end, even if not by the other. Martha: so just because I feel it, doesn't mean they feel it, no matter who initiated it? Michael: That would be correct, but only in terms of conscious vs subconscious. Cording is always "felt" by all parties in some way, but not always consciously. For instance, celebrities would never be able to consciously grasp the magnitude of each cord, but there is a definite sense that support and/or animosity is funneling into his or her life through these cords. Martha: what about my sense that it feels like essence contact, are they related? Michael: The way one can tell if one is consciously corded to someone, is if there is a strong distraction, attraction, repulsion, or compulsion with that fragment. Michael: Essence Contact usually requires a mutual presence of some sort, such as the meeting of the Personalities in physical space, or the Astral/Emotional Bodies in the Astral. Essence Recognition, however, requires no presence of the other fragment. Martha: oh, I actually meant essence recognition :) the feelings seemed related Martha: thank you Michael: In your case, you are processing Essence Recognition, and you are consciously aware of your Cording, which is valid. Michael: Correction: you are often processing Essence Recognition....
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2000] [Dewliet] In a previous chat, Michael stated that music can be “a path to direct contact with other Essences.” Would you please expound on this? [Michael_Entity] Music and Math are Universal Truths. Music is a “language” used throughout the Planes; it is not limited to the Physical Plane. Music is Math, Exalted. Considering Music as a more “universal language,” it is also more likely to be “understood” by parts of you not limited to the Physical Plane. Even within a limited perspective, it can be noted that Music can affect your Emotions, your Intellect, and your Moving Center in quite drastic ways. This, then, extends to affect the Higher Centers as well. The Higher Centers are more direct links to your Essence. When Music is affecting, aligning, healing, balancing, etc., your Higher Centers, your level of communication to/from Essence can amplify greatly. Taking this further, “you” are less different and convoluted as Essences when communicating from Essence. Therefore, Music can be a direct path to contact and recognition of another Essence quite easily. We will add here that one of the more effective forms of speech is when words are “sung.” Sages and Artisans can know this and communicate quite animatedly. Music is not limited to only the use of objective instruments.
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- July 2009] [Question] what are the 7 levels of real essence contact? [Michael Entity] Becoming more intimate and aware of your Essence could be described by these 7 stages below. We are describing them in terms of the level of consciousness brought to the process of Choice. ONE: Conscious Choice: if you are aware that you are making a choice, you are at least within the first stage of Essence contact TWO: Self-Nurturing Choice: if you are aware that you are choosing, and that your choices are intended to nurture yourself, then you are at least within the second stage of Essence Contact. THREE: Pleasurable Choice: if you are aware that you are choosing, that your choices are intended to nurture, and that your navigation is pointed toward pleasurable experiences, then you are within at least the third stage of Essence Contact. FOUR: Causal Choice: if you are aware that you are choosing, that your choices are intended to nurture, that your navigation is intended to bring pleasure and that all of this can be considered in the context of its impact on others and your probabilities (future), then you are at least within the 4th stage of Essence Contact. FIVE: Truthful Choices: building upon the previous four levels or stages, we would describe the 5th stage as that of being incapable of deceiving yourself or others, or making choices based upon lies that you have come to rely upon as truths about yourself or others in ways that cause harm, isolation, pain, boredom, or lack of fulfillment. We rarely see a full movement into or beyond this 5th stage. SIXTH: Trustful Choices: building upon the previous 5 stages, this stage describes a sense of peace and trust, not only in your personal awareness and sense of capabilities within the life but upon your Essence as a part of your resource for knowledge and history. This is not a blindness or moments of leaping into the unknown, but of a deep peace that your intuition and inner guidance are exactly what is appropriate for you, and that if you were to discover differently, you would trust that you simply recalibrate. SEVEN: Playful Choice: this is a level of living that builds upon the previous 6 levels and has no fear. Fear is used as a form of information, not imprisonment or paralyzation. It is a deep recognition of your existence before, within, and beyond this Personality and lifetime, and life is then experienced as a massive opportunity to play, whatever that may mean for you. There are other ways to describe these 7 stages of intimacy and embrace of Essence by Personality, but this is one way that is applicable and valid.
