  1. December 3, 2011 OMW: Year Review MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here now. The workshop requested today is that of consciously reviewing your year of experiences so that you may carry with you into the next year that which is of benefit to you, and release that which is not. This process of Review happens on a Personality Level almost-yearly, but almost always subconsciously, and not with a great deal of comprehension. There are various levels of Reviews that happen, as signified by some of the planetary Returns in your Astrology, such as the Jupiter and Saturn Returns, and also by any collective Instinctive Centered Year, or major events and choices in your life. In short, Reviews are happening "all the time" in some form, but it usually takes a major event to truly bring comprehension of that Review. Unless you use your power of Choice to bring a Review into comprehension at will. The Review process that we will discuss today is one based upon your Choice, your willingness. It is a conscious Review. Time periods or recurring events (such as holidays) are excellent markers for taking a moment to Review, and the end/beginning of a year is usually quite significant to most. We will define "Review" here as: the process of awareness, integration and comprehension of experiences. Awareness is the Intellectual recall of experience. Integration is the extraction of meaning from experience, or the Emotional/Inspirational element. And Comprehension is the building from those experiences, or the Action element. What most lifetimes/Personalities tend to do is to leave a trail of experiences that are then gathered up only after the death of the body. The cliche that "people never really change" is based upon this, because most fragments while incarnated in a Personality really do not change in any discernible way, because there is a great lack of Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension of Experiences. Most lifetimes tend to be a series of consumed experiences that do not get fully processed. To put this into perspective: imagine that a lifetime equals 100% Experience. Most fragments, while in a body, are Aware of only 10% at most, Integrate only half of that 10% at most, and Comprehend even less. In other words: 90% of what is gained from a lifetime of Experiences comes AFTER the lifetime ends. A lifetime of experiences over a 70 to 100 year span bringing only 3% Comprehension leaves the Personality at the end of the lifetime feeling quite bewildered with "where the time went," what he or she did with his or her life, etc. If Review were a regular part of the lifetime in Comprehensive ways, or if this were considered a valid and vital part of educational systems, lifetimes would look very different. That being said, it is also a glorious luxury that a Personality is NOT required to Review. YOU get to LIVE. That is all you have to do, if that. It is not your responsibility, nor is it particularly appealing to go into Review on any regular basis during a lifetime. The opportunities are there, and sometimes they are vital (signified most of the time by near-death experiences prompting Review), but they are not required. However, as the Soul Ages, and the Personalities grow more and more conscious during the living of a lifetime, manifesting Essence more and more, the process of Review becomes quite an interesting prospect. YOU want to Review because YOU equals Essence. "You" always equates Essence, but not always consciously, which is the differentiation between "manifesting Essence" and not. Today, then, we will share with you ways that you can Review using tools that are useful as Personality, as well as methods that are used by Essence, usually reserved for after death. Before we go into those, we will first suggest the methods for settling into your Review. You do not have to do these during this workshop. Draw from memory at least 3 significant events of your past year. There are always 3 or more, whether you realize that or not. There a multitude, in fact, but in terms of memory, there should always be available at least 3 with which will come to AWARENESS. Divide your previous year into four sections of three months each (i.e., Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sep, Oct-Dec). To the best of your memory, determine in which section the events occurred. [Martha] event meaning some particular occurrence, or could it be some longer term theme/project etc? MEntity: Martha, "significant" is the key here. It could have been a moment, it could have been a project, it could have been a word, it could have been a day, etc. The degree of significance to you is what is important. By "significant," we mean that it meant something to you that stayed with you in some way. If it was a long-term event of significance, it can be noted as to where it began, but it can also be noted as to which sections it spanned. By just doing these steps, you have worked through the Awareness and Integration elements of Review. The next steps, then, will have more immediate significance and resonance, if this process works for you, as your examples can be worked with. A continuation on the Integration element: The four sections of the year are now labeled by the Overleaf emphasis that the season tends to bring with it. This may be different for those in the different Hemispheres, and whether the climate is rather steady, or not, there will still be these "seasons." For simplistic purposes, we will describe the climates where most of our students are, and this can then be translated appropriately. Jan-Mar=Winter=GOAL Apr-Jun=Spring=MODE Jul-Sep=Summer=ATTITUDE Oct-Dec=Fall=CHIEF FEATURES Obviously, these are not exact to the shifts in Seasons, and in fact there are more "seasons" when technically speaking, but this is a symbolic mapping that need not be confused with more technical differences. [Maureen] Is it your personal Overleaves in effect or is this only the "effect" of the yearly, transiting Overleaves? MEntity: In extreme climates that transcend the more "traditional" shifts in insolation for the year, such as closer to the poles and equator, we would still suggest dividing up your year for Review as suggested, as it is symbolic, as we said, but there are some differences in your process that we will address. There a multitude of ways to define "seasons" on the planet, so we will use this mapping that helps to cover the point of Review, rather than as a way to describing shifting temperatures and cycles of the planet, itself. In your identifying where in your "seasons" your significant events occurred, you have gained insight into which of your Overleaves was being activated as a primary process for that event. If your significant event occurred in Jan-Mar, it is directly and most-significantly linked to your GOAL. If your significant event occurred in Apr-Jun, it is directly, and most-significantly, linked to your MODE. And so on. To expand upon these: GOAL = the state or quality that every action in your life is aimed at comprehending. MODE = the method through which you access inspiration, and use that for developing Relationships. ATTITUDE = the means through which you communicate/express yourself to your world, and interpret the communication and expressions from your world. CHIEF FEATURES = the habits used to protect yourself from presumed dangers and threats to any of the above. All of this falls into the elaboration for Step Three, by the way. [Maureen] So if you went into "action" during the Oct-Dec time period -- would that be in "reaction" to your Chief Features? MEntity: We do not understand your question. [Maureen] If this time period is related to the CFs -- and you "act" or create at that time -- is this related to the Cfs? MEntity: No. When we get into examples, this may be clearer. Before we continue, we will take one of you as an example for how to utilize step three, and help you walk through the assessment. Who will volunteer? Just one, for now. [Maureen] me? MEntity: Yes, Maureen. [Maureen] do you want me to give you what I have? MEntity: Share one significant event and in what time frame it occurred. [Maureen] OBSERVATION, PASSION/RESERVE, REALIST, CFs (STUBBORNNESS, SELF-DEP, IMPATIENCE): People “insisting/wanting” to pay me Apr-Jun($), Jul-Aug(barter), Oct-Dec($). MEntity: So that we are clear: these are the same events of significance, occurring at different points in the year? [Maureen] yes - similar events / so the "same' – yes MEntity: This would then count as ONE significant event, even if it is cycles or repetition, and we would go with where it began: in the realm of your MODE. However, it will still "mean something" that it occurred in these other seasons, and we can address that. The arcing of significance, though, would be in that this is a Significant Event regarding Inspiration, your Mode, and Relationships. Our walkthrough with you will lead to step FOUR) Comprehension. What will lead to Comprehension, is the full Integration from step THREE, which is making sense of what this means to you. In this case, having the symbolic context of your Mode, Inspiration, and Relationships, it seems almost "too obvious" that this Significant Event is a process that is inviting you to relate in ways that bring the circuit of Inspiration to a wholeness in your Relationships regarding your services. It was an opportunity for you to Comprehend that your services have value that, while difficult to quantify, CAN be quantified in a way that helps that Comprehension. Therein lies the Comprehension, or Step Four: you are PART of the equation of value, not the entire equation, in a Relationship, in any terms of exchange. In terms of your own Mode of Observation, then, it would mean that this Significant Event should be glaring, obvious, and clear, and if it is rejected, you are not seeing clearly, or refusing to see clearly what is so obvious. [Maureen] I can see it – lol MEntity: Yes, you can. And by using this Review, you can then build from the Experience in a way that changes you, rather than hints at possibilities that you refuse, deny, or resist. Does all of this make sense to you? [Maureen] yes it does MEntity: Another example from another student is requested. Yes, Janet. Share as Maureen shared. [Janet] I participated in a dance competition in June, first in many years. I did not do well for a variety of reasons. But it haunts me now. I'm in Power mode. Might be my self-dep that alters my impressions of it now. MEntity: What part of June? The closer to July, the more one would want to consider the next" season" as well; in this case, the Attitude. [Janet] Mid-June. But I am Stoic. MEntity: NOTE: Any Significant Event that resides on the cusp of a "season" would do well to consider the context next to it. [Janet] And goal of Dominance to complete the sequence... MEntity: A fair span of consideration for a cusp is 3 days before the next context. In assessing your Significant Event, Janet, one would consider the event in context: in your case, in the context of Power Mode. Keeping in mind that "MODE = the method through which you access inspiration, and use that for developing Relationships," and that Power Mode is about relating through your degree of PRESENCE, we can begin to extract the significance of this event, or Integrate it. In this case, you went on full display, not only for others to see, but for you to see, just how PRESENT you are with yourself. Were you fully merged into the movements of your dance? Were you present with yourself *as a dancer*, or were you distracted by your past performances as a dancer, or your future assessment as a dancer? [Janet] Oh bingo MEntity: This is significant to you because it let you see where you are in your use of that Mode, in your use of Power, in your willingness to Be Present (in relationships). [Janet] So if you do not or cannot make full use of your mode, you may miss opportunities? Is this a way of evaluating how to approach future events? MEntity: And therein lies your Comprehension, or Step Four. That you fall into Oppression of yourself to protect yourself from the presence and power of others, rather than stand in your own Authority and confidence with whatever, however, and wherever you are with yourself NOW. [Janet] Very valid. And in retrospect all my previous good showings at comps made full use of Power mode. I see it now. MEntity: You will always make "full use" of your Mode. It is your Mode. It is functioning in one way or another, be it in Authority, or in Oppression. The key here is in your Conscious Review: continue to condemn your performance and lose all useful meaning (Integration) from it, or retroactively allow THAT PERFORMANCE to be OKAY. Take back your Authority, and bring yourself back to you (Presence), by understanding that it was its own performance, and not a defining moment the wipe out all other performances, past, future, or present. [Janet] A most helpful Review. Thank you. [Maureen] So is that how the CFs come into "play" -- at the end of the year? As we look back we "assign" a "negative" or "positive" reaction/response to our events? MEntity: Maureen, that is valid. The "season" of Chief Features tends to be when most do any kind of Review, but when done without Consciousness, there tends to come only a review of what went wrong, what needs to change, what you will do differently, etc. And then the cycle perpetuates in the new year. [Maureen] and I just saw Janet "shift" -- so if you allow yourself to shift from a "negative" to a "positive" view you can pull your OLs into the positive? MEntity: Yes, Maureen; it is an immediate effect. [Janet] But is it also valid to use what you know about the seasonal impact of the overleaves to prepare yourself for a coming event? MEntity: Janet, because this mapping is based in Review, it tends to be the case that it is only useful in retrospect, rather than in anticipation. [Janet] Ah. But I imagine some awareness won't hurt in the future. MEntity: However, knowing the "seasonal emphasis" can help you to gauge your anticipated events in a way that then allows for more immediate Integration from within the Experience. [Janet] I can see that. MEntity: For instance, had you known about this before your dance, you could have brought a consciousness to your dance that embraced your Power and presence. But that is also a realization that one can make at any time of the year. When your Reviews are only based upon what went wrong, what needs to change, etc, then it tends to be the case that your entire next year begins with Actions/Goals that stem from disappointment, failings, etc, and the stories repeat in many ways then. When you are RELATING, consider your Mode. When you are fulfilling intentions, consider your GOAL. When you are socializing and communicating, consider your ATTITUDE. and so on. What we have shared so far is a symbolic mapping of your Year in Review that helps you to bring Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension. Keep in mind that nearly all of what you have labeled as "significant events" comes with great benefit, if Comprehended. When there is lack of Comprehension, even the best of events can be dismissed. When Comprehension is involved, everything is amazing and beneficial. However, it is not lost on Essence that many events of significance simply cannot be Comprehended while within the confines of time and space, and in those instances, the freedom you give yourself NOT to comprehend (until you can) is a Comprehension in itself. To clarify our mapping of the year, the reason Chief Features are assigned to Fall, is that it is an Assimilative time of year, and therefore brings up the Instinctive Center, which often prompts fears. Assimilation is a process of filtering and organizing experiences, and this often means letting things die for the sake of rebirth, if you will. What we have shared with you is a process that is a crude parallel to how Essence Reviews an entire lifetime, except in far more detail and analysis, but your participation while from "inside" the life adds a level of profundity to afterlife Review that can only come from your participation now. Imagine the difference between walking a path through a grove of fruitful trees carrying a basket for collecting those ripened fruits, and taking time to eat many of them along the way, versus walking through that same path without a basket, and only carrying a few fruits in hand, able to maybe eat part of one along the way. The basket and the eating are your Awareness and Integration, which naturally lead to Comprehension, or a full basket at the end of the life. To continue with our metaphor, it would be similar to handing over whatever fruits are in your arms at the time, but leaving many uncollected. Some fragments "hand over their fruits" as their arms fill, and some just keep piling on top until older fruits drop off, and only recent fruits are then collected, or the other way around. [GeraldineB] What about the ongoing Reviews with Essence, i.e., the 7-year Review? MEntity: Geraldine, in most instances of Review, it is merely an uploading process, if you will, for Essence to sort through. It is not a Comprehension on the level of Personality. [Oscar] Do Scholars collect more due to their more frequent uploading? MEntity: Oscar, in keeping with the metaphor, Scholars come with their very own truck, but again, their collecting and uploading does not equate Comprehension. To share with you more creative, Personality-based Review, one can also use such things as intentional synchronicities, or oracles. Creating a layout for a Tarot Card reading of your year can be helpful. Looking at significant Transits in your Astrology can be helpful. Casting Runes, etc. [Janet] I'm sorry but what is an "intentional synchronicity"? MEntity: Janet, we used that phrase to describe the intent for a system of randomness to act as a representation or reflection of specifics. [Janet] Oh, like tarot cards or the like. MEntity: That is an example, yes. [hanna3175] iching! MEntity: Correct. Intentional Synchronicity. The intentional aspect is important, as it defines the circuit used for symbolic communication. Anything can be used when using Intentional Synchronicity. This is how dreams and omens can become significant to some. It is a valid means of establishing a language between Personality and Essence, or "the universe," etc. [Maureen] The question posed "creates" the answer -- that is why the "question" is so important -- even with you Michael! MEntity: Even the arrangements of toppings on a pizza can be "read," if there is a system defined/intended. Tea Leaf reading is no different from reading toppings on a pizza, for that matter. This process is a use of the Higher Moving Center, or the capacity for extracting Beauty. The ability to recognize patterns from within randomness. It is a skill that requires honesty, however, because it can also lead to "seeing" anything in everything. In conclusion today: By using the map we have described, and the steps for moving through Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension, you can begin your 2012 on a higher cycle, if you choose, rather than as a repeated cycle, or as an extended cycle. By "higher cycle" we simply mean that it continues to build upon what has come, rather than circles back to it. We will work with Troy in sharing in our next Open Monthly Workshop then just how one might start a higher cycle after a Comprehensive Review. NOTE: in your process of Review, we suggest taking your time, playing with various ways of understanding your significant event in terms of how it benefited you, and not simply making note of them and then discarding the process if it is frustrating. It can be daunting, we know, but it is an exercise of a "muscle" that is latent and fairly ignored, so it will not always seem easy or fun, at first. If you find you are not making any sense of your Review, or not getting to your point of Comprehension, as revealed by a sense of relief, "a-ha" moment, or enthusiasm, then set it down and come back to it later. Your life will still be there.
  2. Kundalini

    This material was obtained by Connor in a private session in 2017. Question: Can you give insight on Kundalini awakenings and how to awaken such energies? MEntity: Kundalini "awakenings" are a process of directing or freeing the Sexual Center, or Higher Moving Center. This is the highest energy immediately accessible to the Personality and Body. It correlates to the second Chakra and is a Higher Energy intentionally set among the Lower Centers. This energy awakens when under extreme duress or extreme pleasure. When one seeks to direct or free this energy in ways that do not depend upon extremes, then it is only a matter of balancing the Lower Centers. When the Lower Centers are balanced, this creates the pathways, or opens the pathways for the Higher Moving energy to move. Balance among the Lower Centers simply means that all are used as they are needed, and the habits of the Trap are broken. Question: the Trap being certain anxieties? MEntity: For instance, if one is Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part, it can become a habit to rely entirely upon the emotions and the intellect and to move away from the use of the body or moving energy. This moving away from the use of the body can be in literally falling into sedentary states, or more likely that it turns into anxiousness, restlessness, distraction, emphasis on stimulation over true pleasure, etc. So the Personality has a feeling, thinks about it and/or expresses it, generates more feeling, more thought, more feeling, more thought, etc. and no action, no moving forward, no direction. Or frenetic action, sporadic movement, outbursts, etc. So learning to include the body, action, and movement along with feelings, inspiration, thought, and expression is helpful for giving pathways to the Higher Moving Center/Sexual Energy or Kundalini. In addition to that balancing, it is important to free your ideas about what sex *should* be. Sex is not a performance, but an exploration.
  3. Kundalini

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2008] [Ingun] Kundalini is a word and topic that is attached with so many “pictures” or labels or beliefs for instance coming from the belief that the body is an illusion. I also understand that the Kundalini is a physical energy and can have different effects depending on which chakra or channels in the body it is running through or one intentionally runs it through. I would like Michael to share some information about the Kundalini energy and clear out some misinformation. [Michael Entity] That is a rather large topic, but we will respond briefly here, and invite further discussion with this as a specific topic at some point. [Ingun] Yes, some brief information will do well. [Michael Entity] What is called “Kundalini” energy is what we would call Higher Moving Energy; this is the energy that flows to, from, and through the Higher Moving Center and what might be called the Second Chakra/Sacral Chakra. While all Higher Centers are accessible to the Body and Personality, the Higher Moving is the most readily accessible, as it is “rooted deeper” in the Body. Emphasizing study and consciousness on this particular Energy is Good Work, but is as susceptible to as many misconceptions and misdirections as any other activity for a group or individual. We would simply say that emphasis on this Energy would do well be tempered with awareness of the Higher Emotional and Higher Intellectual Centers/Energies as well. This Kundalini Energy is just that: Energy. But Energy has both a positive and a negative pole, which could be described as Beauty and Chaos, respectively. What helps Energy to move toward Beauty are the structures and awareness that are a part of Truth and Love. In other words, our brief response would be that Energy, Truth, and Love are the building blocks of your Universe, personally and universally, and one cannot be explored without the inclusion of the others. We have much more to say about this, but will explore this more fully in other discussions.
  4. November 21, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand that you are interested in the “energy report,” so we will begin there. As we have covered the next several weeks in our previous reports, we do not have much more to add. We can more appropriately give you any specifics that have come up as a result of the passage of time. The next two weeks appear to be a week of contrasts. This is more elaboration on what we had originally termed “surprising” manifestations. In the next weeks ahead, there appears to be a continued energy focusing on high contrasts between what is assumed or expected versus the manifestations opposed to this. This is merely the manifestations of Martyrdom and Impatience, as we have elaborated on in your past. Anyone who has Impatience and/or Martyrdom can attest to the seemingly consistent stream of experiences that push the Personality in directions unexpected. This will be played out in its highest density of manifestation over the next two weeks, possibly three weeks, as the opportunity to indulge in these Fears is presented/created. As these weeks pass, it will be meaningful to most of you to reread the previous two transcripts with the Energy Reports for more details in how to handle these energy fluctuations. It can be said at this time that each of you will most likely NOT “escape” the energy moving through your plane, as easily as is usually the case. It seems most fragments are resonating with the exponential “agitation” that has begun to unfold. The Energy we speak of would be that of the “collective” energy generated among most human sentience at any given time. In many cases, many of you can evade or avoid these energy shifts and fluctuations as easily as you would rain, but in the weeks ahead, this appears to be more “stormy” than usual and it will at least touch your attention. We simply mean that each of you will most likely find some kind of contrast against your expectations to deal with that are fairly striking compared to your usual surprises, as well as more community and global levels of surprise. For instance, a well-known figure in the acting field has recently come to terms with going “public” about her belief and experiences of “reincarnation” and this will most likely be a focus of media for a while. This may seem to be a plain example, lacking fanfare, but this is what we are trying to convey through the example. The experiences appear to range from high surprise to sheer shock, depending on your personal resonance with the energy at the time. It could then be said that the next 3 weeks or so will have a Key Theme of High Contrast (Surprise), and a Key Resolution through Surrender. By Surrender, we mean to find ways to “enjoy the ride,” to observe with a bit of detachment as a means to find the humor and adventure in your life. Many of the “surprises” will just be humorous, as that is the nature of Humor, to contradict, surprise, and present paradox. A recent example would be in the spectacle made of the fragment known as Michael Jackson. We will now open the floor to questions. [sam_nemo] My reading of the Tao Te Ching and Bhagavad Gita indicates that results are more important than means, but Michael said another time the journey was more important. [M_Entity] And what is your question? [sam_nemo] Which is more important, the ends or means? Am I misreading the texts? [M_Entity] Both are “important,” but each takes on its own importance depending on the context. In most religious texts, the emphasis is on the END RESULT because most religions spring from a need to understand tragedy and pain. In that need to understand, it is easier to satisfy the more passive states of being human, by stating that rewards are at the end, and that as long as you get there, the path did not matter. This is helpful when one is concerned with whether he or she is on the “right path or not.” In our perception, there is only the path of Choice, so there is no “right or wrong,” only Choice. Our emphasis is a bit more on the means to create a path to your liking, because you will get to the “end” no matter what... you may as well enjoy the journey. The “end” never truly comes, anyway. Therefore, in the end, it is the Journey that becomes your “heaven.” If you choose to be an active participant in your life, learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn, then it is the Journey that will be of importance to you. [clairen] At what point in Gandhiji's life did the Transcendental Soul manifest? [M_Entity] A Transcendental Soul is born. It does not manifest in the same way that the Infinite Soul does. This is because the fragment that is “in” the body is already a fragment from the Entity being represented. There will, of course, be a regaining of consciousness, but it will not be as lengthy and troubled as a single fragment's. This is why a Transcendental Soul tends to be so effective and magnetic quite early in the life. While the individual is technically a Transcendental Soul, he still exists with a Personality that will have its challenges based on imprinting or ideals. In his case, he had an emphasis on alleviating the effects of Greed, which would mean he had his own personal fears related to this Chief Feature. His Idealism, at times, would lead him into naivety as he would assume that Sexual exchanges somehow “stole” from the energy of another, or himself. We remind you that while Transcendental Souls have a “higher” perspective of everything, they are immediately as susceptible to the confusions of being human as they are of the wisdom from the Entity. [clairen] Why did he feel so guilty about sex with his wife? [M_Entity] It will help to understand that Sex was the most immediate indulgence available for the Transcendental Soul to use as a tool and example of restraint against Greed. Since this is a common indulgence, it was more symbolic than literal in his experiences. [Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death? [M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike? [Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate. [M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment's death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.” Time becomes much more malleable and while some fragments will “immediately” seek the comfort and consolation of family and friends, others will “go back” to those hours immediately following death to offer comfort, but only after the fragment itself has reached some understanding of what has occurred. There is no standard. We can say, however, that the GENERAL way of experiencing post-body is through a process very similar to what you experience in terms of waking up physically. Most of you will have your experiences following death to be very similar to your experiences of waking up each day. If you wake up grouchy, you will most likely die “grouchily.” If you wake up “bubbly,” you will most likely die “bubbly.” If you recall your dreams more readily, you will most likely recall your lifetime as readily. If you never remember your dreams, you may find that a series of “dips” back into the lifetime timeline will be a form of review. Regardless of how all of this is experienced, most fragments are immediately interested in emotional rest, healing, and comfort during what you would call the first 72 hours. [essenses] Regarding the prophesies of the indigenous peoples that say as we come to the year 2012, time as we know it will shift. Are you aware of a shift that will occur that will be very different from life as we know it now, and if so what would the change look and feel like? [M_Entity] There will always be shifts and that which is indicated by Mayans, or any other ancient or modern group, are no more or less as meaningful or meaningless as any other shift. Some groups have a calendar to point out the date, and still others are as vague as simply stating that “He will return.” We remind you that your most recent shift in consciousness globally came on September 11, 2001. Previous to this, it was in August of 1987. These shifts in perception of Time or Space or spirit or matter are not rare, though they can be more or less subtle. [essenses] Are we entering a “golden age,” 4th dimension less density? [M_Entity] Probabilities do indicate a strong inclination for world peace and continuing explorations of compassion, if this is what you mean by “less density” and a “golden age.” [essenses] Yes, I guess so as that is what the predictions say. [M_Entity] It is a Mature Soul world, which could be interpreted as “4th dimensional,” if that is your terminology, as it is the 4th soul age. [Leela] Can you please comment on the origins of what is now known as “belly dance”? By origins, I mean both geographically/culturally, and spiritual; I feel that this dance is very powerful and meaningful. What were its original purposes? Is it true that it was partially used for childbirth rituals? [M_Entity] This dance has its origins from more than is considered now, though its more traceable roots can be seen to reach into the history of what is called the Middle East or Orient. We have seen this dance as being prehistory, being a form of varying forms of power during a period on Earth when women ruled. [Leela] Is this dance a form of energy work? [M_Entity] It was used as torture as well as mating, sexual stimulation between same sexes, and birthing. The more mystical meanings began to become associated with this dance many years past its true origins. [Leela] Torture?! [M_Entity] Yes, sexual forms of taunting were used to punish males. The dancing you recognize today could be said to be a refined version of its origins, with a focus on the more spiritual aspects as it relates to images ranging from Skakti to servants of pleasure. It has always been a Moving Centered/Intellectual Part form of dancing, as it is focused entirely on control, balance, isolation, and anticipation. Or an Intellectually Centered/Moving Part form of dancing. Those who of either centering are usually drawn strongly to it. It is less about the history that draws the fragments who practice it, as it is about the resonance within the body and the ensuing resonance with the Energy of the physical plane. For most fragments who begin practice this form of meditation, blockages within the lower chakras and the Higher Moving Center can tend to be “cleared” up, releasing a storehouse of erratic energy at first, then slowly settling into the balance it naturally would have. [oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps? [M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth. [oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent? [M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.” Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized. [Mike_Val] An Oxford DNA Scientist has stated that we have originated from seven women in a book called The Seven Daughters of Eve. Can we as a race, be traced to these seven women scientifically through our DNA? [M_Entity] No. We do not see validity to this. Though this could be a distorted interpretation of the fact of your Species being based on a hybrid of 7 different species. [chrisx1] referring to the comment on the last shift in consciousness on Sept. 11, 2001, when is the next shift of significance? [M_Entity] These shifts are never predictable, but they are able to be seen in terms of probabilities. The most significant shift pending in your timeline now appears to be in or near the year 2020. A great deal of meaning is placed in this configuration of numbers, and while there will be shifts before that time, that year appears to be a pivotal year. It appears to be the first year that two major countries will share a leader, or stand as joint leaders. If this does not occur literally, it will be a strong focus in the world as to how this will be implemented when it does become feasible. It is also the first year that the country known as Iraq may first become territory controlled by another country's leader. This is already an agenda of the United States, even if not intentionally. We will conclude now. Good night.
  5. May 23, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. And, yes, we will begin with an energy report. We realize some of you do find validation and benefit from these reports. For the following few weeks, it could be said that a theme of REGENERATION is at hand. Some may have seen the past month as showing signs of many things coming to an apparent “end,” but we have seen this as being a means to regenerate energy into new levels of Form to accommodate the broader climates of consciousness. Many things that are symbolic to you are “ending,” ranging from long-­term television series to major changes in physical locations among friends and family. If you have noticed a theme of these “endings” and major changes, you are quite conscious of the effects of this passing Nexus, shifting a great deal in reality from being symbolic to being “REAL.” These shifts from symbolic to physical imply that a great deal of you incarnated are highly interested in making changes in your lives in a direction that would make your physical reality as accurately representing your internal ideals as possible. In other words, it appears more fragments are willing to use the Moving Center from the Positive Pole, more than has been the case in a long time. For the next 2­3 weeks, then, it would not be surprising if you find yourselves feeling pulled to “get out” more, to go for ponderous walks, dance, be playful, and surrender to an enthusiasm that may or may not be directional. A strong drive toward physical affection and embracing of people you normally would find challenging, appears to be a potential result of this regeneration. Things you have carried internally categorized as “unacceptable,” “annoying,” “agitating,” or any other abrasive term, will seem a general “waste” of energy to sustain. This is due to the second wave of energy moving out from the “terrorist” threats that brought down your World Trade Center Towers One and Two, and general war­-related tensions from that. The productivity gained from major internal realizations and profound release of “old energy” is finally able to come into tangibility. There have been many “major” shifts on this planet and within your lifetime, but we would say that the passing Nexus has found more participants from a conscious level than we have ever seen. There is a general sense of “waking up” that we have not seen in nearly 25 years. The most meaningful suggestion we can give in light of this energy report is to gently, and with trust follow your impulses. Internal “Maps” and Essence-­driven patterns for the life are more accessible than ever, for most of you. When we say to “follow your impulses,” we differentiate this from your “compulsions” and “addictions.” Impulses are gentle and easily dismissed, while compulsions have a force about them. This is not to say that some compulsions do not have valid, meaningful paths, but that Impulsions are usually more aligned with Essence, as Impulses are from a force you may consider from within, while Compulsions are derived from external feedback and stimulation. Both Compulsion and Impulsion are valid, but Compulsion is based in Personality, which may or may not be using data and feedback accurately, and Impulsion is derived from the desires of Essence. We do not dismiss the intelligence and accuracy of Personality. We did not say that, nor did we imply it. We merely point out the difference and the appropriate potential use of Impulsion in the context of the current energy. We will take your questions now, whether on the Energy Report, or otherwise. [mdfsage_val] How would an Idealist relate to the chief feature of Martyrdom/greed? [M_Entity] The Idealist sees everything in terms of how it can be improved. This can be a benefit, in that it can help a fragment find ways to successfully evolve many things within the life, Personality, and Essence, but it can also lead to tremendously oppressive bouts of comparing. When the Idealist is seeing through the Positive Poles, he can see the patterns that would lead to an evolution of an event, person, or thing, and he will move toward supporting, creating, or altering energy to align with that pattern. When he is seeing through the Negative Poles, he simply reverts to the use of “SHOULD,” and merely sees the major gap between the way things are and how they SHOULD be. Using the Chief Features of Martyrdom and Greed, the Idealist may feel that the gap between where he is and where he should be is too far out of his control and hopeless (martyrdom). He may tend toward being a physical, emotional, spiritual, or intellectual “black hole” that cannot seem to find anything to fill the gap so painfully perceived (greed). This response is but a simplified response, but we believe this will allow you some insights. [sam­nemo] What happened to Soleal who was mentioned in the transcripts of Sarah Chambers? [M_Entity] Though validity was given to this energy as an “alien consciousness,” this was more a personification of 3 fragment's Essences who were involved in refining contact with us. A valid off-planet consciousness was involved, but as the mediums were quite new in making this kind of contact, a great deal of personification, projection, and identification was a part of that exchange. When contact with any non-physical presence is first made, it is safe to say that an important part of the process IS personification, projection, and identification. Something acceptable or exciting must be created as a conduit for the energy to take “shape,” making the exchanges much more comfortable. Some fragments still find contact with “Soleal” currently, and while the “alien” consciousness is validly a part of these exchanges, those who contact “Soleal” are also using this medium as a means to communicate with Essence. The actual Essence and Personality of the fragment who is the “alien” is still incarnated and unable to pursue his experiments of physical contact due to more restrictions of contact with Earth. [Leela] I would like a basic “snapshot” of the world situation as it currently stands; could Michael please comment on the potentialities that exist right now for the Bush administration and other political entities, and for peace vs. war, or more nuanced versions of same? [M_Entity] As it stands currently, the probabilities are leaning AGAINST war on any large scale. There are very few fragments interested in this means of conflict resolution, and those who are interested, are already directly involved. The highest probability is leaning toward one more major attack on the United States in a way that rallies even the most passive of countries to join in a stand against violent conflict. Though the United States is treated with resentment and has strong “love/hate” relationships with many countries, the symbolism and model of the United States is still deeply meaningful to many fragments. With communications and travel bringing the world into more of a global tribe, any assault to any major country of influence will more than likely not be tolerated by even the most opportunistic politicians. The shift on the planet recently seems to have most probabilities pointing to a “let's get this out of the way” mentality, which means the crux of any threats from “terrorism” will most likely manifest and pass before 18 months. As for the “Bush administration,” most probabilities will move into light the “real” intelligence and power behind handling crisis, especially as the fragment known as Bush begins to manifest more of his health issues. Though this is not a prediction, we can say that when the fragment known as the President manifests a surprising health issue of serious concern, the potential for attack will most likely be highest. Health issues for both President and Vice President are quite unstable at this time. [LoriA] What kind of attack and where would the most probability be (location wise), here in the U.S.? Thank you. [M_Entity] We still see what is called the “Midwest” as being the highest probable target, ranging from the Sears Tower to attack on a small town. The second highest probability is Hoover Dam, while New York City Subways and the White House are tertiary concerns. Again, we believe this to be most likely within the next 18 months. [MaryBV] I would like to know about Chandra Levy. What is the story here? Is this a monad playing out or an agreement? What can Michael tell us? [M_Entity] This is neither a Monad or an Agreement, but the creation of Karma. The original Karma existed between the fragment known as Condit and the female known as Levy, but the burning of that ribbon was “botched” and compounded. Condit could not bring himself to burn the ribbon, himself, but the compulsion to do so was still present, leading him to hire “hit men.” Levy's Essence, in a previous incarnation, of course, had directly committed murder of the fragment who is now Condit. The burning of this ribbon would have had Condit directly ending the life of Levy, but, as we said, this is now compounded by including the two “hit men.” Now there are two Major Murder Karma between the Essences of Levy and Condit, and Major Murder Karma between the Essence of Levy and one of the “hit men,” along with Major Bondage Karma between the Essence of Levy and the other “hit man.” In addition, there is new Karma formed among the “hit men” and the fragment known as Condit. We think even more Karma would be formed when indictments and imprisonment cause the fragments involved to have to abandon their families and positions of authority. [JNelson] Could you clarify “Major Bondage Karma”? [M_Entity] “Major Bondage Karma” is in the major physical restrictions imposed against the will of one fragment from another fragment, which most likely leads to death. “Minor Bondage Karma” might be the holding down of a fragment while another fragment punches him. [ClaireN] Do some spiritual practices promote access to the higher centers, such as Devotion (Bhakti) to the higher emotional center, or concentration to the higher intellectual? If so, please elucidate. [M_Entity] There are many “spiritual” practices that promote accessing of the Higher Centers. Some are more refined than others, and some are more inclined toward meaningless access, but the impact of the access can be profound, in any case. We would say that “Bhakti” is quite capable of encouraging access to the Higher Emotional Center, as well as the festive Southern Baptist Church vocal orgies. The act of Concentration can truly refine your access to the Higher Intellectual Center, as can the various versions of “speaking in tongues,” particularly in the churches of Pentecostals. Physical Sexual contact with awareness, which is part of Tantra, can move a fragment to Higher Moving Centered access, as can Shamanism practices. As we suggest these correlations, we do not suggest they are the ONLY means of “spiritual practices” that can access these Centers, nor do we suggest they will work for all fragments who would choose to pursue them. A car accident or serious illness can work as well as a long-­term pursuit and discipline. If the interest is there, we would of course be able to comment on the many varying practices and disciplines in terms of how inclined they are toward access and refinement of access to the Higher Centers. We can suggest noting this as a possible subject of discussion in future exchanges. [mdfsage_val] What is the difference between a tandem evolution & a tandem monad, thank you. [M_Entity] A Tandem Monad is a general non-binding, but strongly devoted, sharing of life experiences and major turning points in a life, whether the fragments are in contact with each other, or not. The Tandem Monad is not dependent on physical contact, but more of an Essence-based parallel of experiences gained by the Personalities of those in the Monad. The Tandem Monad will have these major experiences and major shifts, along with strikingly uncanny similarities in lifestyles and choices, all seemingly parallel between the fragments. We use Tandem Evolution to refer to fragments who have decided as Personalities to pursue similar paths of experience and to actively share in that progress, allowing each other to act as support, security, feedback, insight, etc. [clavis] I have noticed “things ending” or “things changing” around me, but I am at lost as to “where I should go next” (and no impulses). Could Michael give any insight? [M_Entity] There are always impulses. In most cases where the sense of “no impulse” is present, the impulse is actually, quite simply, to “wait.” The impulse is informing you to manage reality as it stands currently, but that more information may be needed as a means for determining further impulses. In other cases where the impulse is not recognized, it is because the impulse contradicts the momentum the fragment has invested in. [clavis] So can I say that right now I need to wait for these impulses to lead me to the next step in my 4th IM? [M_Entity] If the latter is the case, it seems to be quite helpful to consult an oracle of preference, such as I Ching or Tarot or Horary Astrology. Using these nonlinear means of insight can lead the fragment into either finding the impulses leading to preferred change, or at least how to find impulses WITHIN the decision to remain with the momentum. In response to your clarification question, we would say, in your case, seeking insight from an oracle would be satisfying, in conjunction with the validity of your impulse to make no major changes just yet. In many teachings, this stage you are experiencing is called “the void.” It is the space and time “byproduct” resulting from a major creation of change. While in “the void,” the opportunity to find trust and contact with Essence is heightened as you experience gentle surrender. This is an experience similar to the long night before the opening of gifts on Christmas Morning. In most cases, if “the void” is being experienced, you can rest assured that a major manifestation of some sort (a gift) is “around the corner.” In other exchanges, we can also suggest an exploration of this phenomenon would be Good Work. [essences] Sorry I got disconnected so I have lost the last 10 minutes of conversation. My question was: Michael, how can I better understand if I am being impulsed to say change a career, or if it is a compulsion to change? If it is compulsion can it also be essence driven? [M_Entity] As we said before, but will say again with more clarification: Impulsion is more silent, easily dismissed, yet persistent. Compulsion is that which seems more forceful, easily carried out, and is usually repetitive in its effect. Impulses lead to major and minor changes in the life, while Compulsions seem to repeat themselves in varying layers and levels. BOTH are valid as a means to create and unfold the life, but they are different. An example may be that a fragment may have an IMPULSE to change his direction or medium of his career, while a COMPULSION may be to remain in the career that is working, even if other more satisfying options are available, though risky. These are neither positive nor negative. They are simply two of seven ways to create and sustain a lifetime. More specifically, these are two of seven ways to Choose. We will discuss this in more detail, as well, in other gatherings. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  6. Seven Rings of Love

    This material was originally posted by Geraldine B on August 10, 2009. Note from Geraldine: In my travels through the older TLE group postings, I came across this from Michael/Troy. I loaded it into the database, but I still thought it worthy of reading as we all struggle with negative versus positive poles, CFs, and all of the other fun stuff of life. For some, it's a repeat, for others it's new material. Note from Kasia: Although Geraldine indicates that she loaded this article into the database, it was not found in the ning materials when they were transferred -- unless she meant this specific article. 7 Rings of Love April 6, 2007 In this article, the material was built upon from past material channeled in the past, with just more layers explored. I think this article came about because the original material was just an outline, and some of us really wanted to grasp what it meant to Love. [MEntity] We are asked tonight to cover what we perceive as the 7 Rings of Love. Considering the magnitude of impact that understanding this Universal Truth would have on an individual life, we are continually surprised at the lack of attention this subject receives. This is not conveyed to you as a judgment, but as an observation. There is no obligation to ever understand our perception of a subject. You will learn to love, and you will love to learn, at your own paces and through your own experiences, regardless of your intimacy or lack of intimacy with us. As we cover the 7 Rings of Love, you will easily see where you are in various areas of your life in relation to events, people, and yourself. You may have no questions in your love for a certain individual, yet have a painful challenge against loving the perpetrators of war or cruelty, for instance. In other instances, you may find you experience a Ring of Love for a complete "stranger," yet feel quite repulsed by your mate. We will list the 7 Rings, then cover each in some detail. First Ring: Nurturing Second Ring: Alliance Third Ring: Reciprocity Fourth Ring: Appreciation Fifth Ring: Comprehension Sixth Ring: Altruism Seventh Ring: Agape The First Ring, NURTURING, of course, is not tremendously difficult to bring to your life or to someone else's. Even "Events" receive some amount of this Ring of Love if you experience certain repetitive patterns in your life. In other words, if you find you continue to struggle with "issues" that change form, but retain the core "lesson," you are providing some form of Nurturing for those issues; some form of Love. Love is not reserved for only Humans or Relationships, but is able to be generated for all Events you experience as a Sentient Being. When you have repetitive patterns in your life and you "wish" they were not a part of your life, it will do you well to observe in what ways you Nurture these events as a means to extract or create opportunities for expanding into wider Rings of Love or as a means to opening to receive Love. We will clarify here that NO RING OF LOVE HAS CONDITION. That fact is the one underlying theme throughout each Ring. When you truly Nurture another person, yourself, or an event, it is without condition. This is why some Events continue to remain, even as you assume you prefer them to leave. On some level of your consciousness, you have determined that your "unwanted" areas of your life require unquestioned Nurturing, so it will remain Nurtured. Some of the most important first experiences of Love are found in Nurturing unwanted situations and relationships. Consider the result of having an "unwanted" child, yet without question, providing the Nurture required for sustaining the life of that child. Nurturing "unwanted" events is similar, even as the event outgrows you or you outgrow it. Nurture is the lowest form of Love, yet it is Love. It is unquestioned obligation and duty. Because the experience of Loving is vital to a lifetime, many Events and People remain within the life that may be harmful, draining, and even dangerous, because to Nurture these things means at least some amount of Love is being experienced. At some point, a fragment will either move beyond that Ring of Love, or eventually dismiss the event as it grows "out of hand, or out of control," responding in a way one would to an "unwanted child." To move beyond Nurture for an event or person or self, one must be willing to move beyond Obligation and Duty, and into AT LEAST Alliance, the Second Ring. ALLIANCE is the second Ring of Love and this rings sees the Person, Event, or Self as an equal. If the Person, Event, or part of Self is not found to be equal, then at least some striking similar traits are emphasized. Alliance becomes necessarily "exclusive" of other people and events and various parts of the Self. The Ring of Duty and Obligation experienced is increased, but without resentment or lack of understanding, and with more willingness and enthusiasm. Issues having been Nurtured in the life become more understood, even if still "unwanted," much in the same way that a person may surrender to, or devote oneself to an "unwanted child." Alliance allows that which is being Loved to become for the first time, a part of the identity of Self. To move from Nurture to Alliance, one only need gain a level of understanding that your actions led you to the Event, Person, or Part of Self. This Ring is related to the 3rd Chakra, or Moving Center, and the First Ring, Nurture, is related to the 1st Chakra, or Instinctive Center. Alliance then leads to RECIPROCITY, the Third Ring of Love. Reciprocity is the Ring that begins to incorporate the Emotions, or Emotional Centering (4th Chakra). It then becomes the first time that a fragment begins to RECEIVE energy, and a circuit is created. The first two Rings focus on basic ways of Giving Love, but to Receive Love is far more challenging than to "give" it. Although Love is more than a circuit of energy, that circuit must be completed before broader Rings of Love are experienced. Reciprocity is the Ring of Love many are capable of reaching on a steady and stable basis. It is fairly easy to live with this Ring and still experience the range of Emotional, Instinctive, and Physical experiences that can challenge a life, self, or relationship. This is the Ring in which your "issues" or "unwanted events," challenging relationships, and difficult parts of Self are even more consciously explored as being "mirrors," or as having more meaningful possibilities beyond superficial challenge. This is the Ring in which you begin to experience more important Attraction/Repulsion experiences within Events, Parts of Self, and Others. Because this Ring is experienced within the arena of Emotions, it can be quite confusing and difficult to manage at times, but it is marked by its strange, solid experience of truly knowing a strong connection and strength is shared with even the most repulsive of People, Events, or Parts of Self. This is because this Ring has the ability to perceive in even the "worst" of Events, People, and Parts of Self, that "gifts" can come of that experience and this allows the continued exploration. To move from Alliance to Reciprocity, one must be willing to Feel in relation to that which is being Loved. Reciprocity then leads to APPRECIATION, the Fourth Ring of Love. This Ring of Love relates to the Intellectual Center, or 5th Chakra, and is the first time a fragment is able to differentiate between what IS and IS NOT your definition of "You," and allows a release of that which IS NOT. Appreciation is the Ring of Love that recognizes the diversity of life and can begin grasping the reality that not EVERYTHING has to be "important" or "have purpose." The fragment begins to Forgive, to truly accept that there has never been a mistake, that all experiences are simply that, Experiences, and that all people are just that, PEOPLE. This is a ring that loses the emphasis that everyone must find a powerful position within their own definition of life, but does allow for others' definitions, even if those definitions are diametrically opposed to your own. Many fragments find this Ring of Love to be invigorating and begin creating strings of sexual and emotional relationships of short durations. This provides satisfying, beautiful, and intensely-contained experiences of Love. This Ring of Love is experienced strongly during the Hormonal Washes of the formative Teen years, but the experiences are dismissed as meaningless, not only because of the nature inherent in that Ring, but also because no validity is given by your culture to the knowledge gained from such formative and fleeting experiences. Of course, we do not say, nor do we imply, that the "teen" years are the only years in which this Ring of Love is experienced, as this Ring of Love can also be generated and sustained even as a "lifestyle" form of Love for some. We also wish to emphasize that the serial sexual/emotional exploration is only one example of how this Ring might be experienced. A more encompassing description is simply that the fragment begins to find a great appeal in exploring anything foreign, unfamiliar, and alien. In terms of the "unwanted issues," the Love experienced at this Fourth Ring will have the fragment finding the issues and events as being adventures, exciting tours, in the world of experiences, rather than as mere burdens. In addition, this Ring begins to see and reach beyond the Person or Event being Loved, expanding to include all associations with that particular Event or Person. "Any friend of yours is a friend of mine" might be a simple, familiar phrase to capture that Ring. Appreciation then leads to COMPREHENSION, or the Fifth Ring. This 5th Ring of Love is associated with the 7th Chakra, or Higher Intellectual Center. This is the Ring in which all Events, People, and Self are seen as quite simply having a part in THE TRUTH. In other words, this is the Ring in which you realize that absolutely nothing is "wrong," that everything is dancing a part in the scheme of things, and you grasp that Truth. You begin to Comprehend that Events and People exist for "their own truth/reason," and that these Events and People do not require your understanding. This is also the first time the Self becomes fully integrated as itself in relation to the Event or Person being Loved, but recognizes these external factors as PART of the life, not as defining it. There is no longer a distraction with attachments to external factors as being the only definitions of "You." For instance, if a relationship ends, this is seen as an experience, not as a blow to your identity. To move from Appreciation to Comprehension, one simply begins to experience Awe. Everything seems to begin to "make sense," despite a lack of logic. Comprehension leads to ALTRUISM, which is the Sixth Ring of Love. Altruism relates to the Higher Emotional Center or 6th Chakra. While Comprehension sees the Truth of an Event or Person, Altruism experiences the deep compassion for how life may be experienced by Others. There is an encompassing acceptance of the "human condition," and an emphasis on the fact that life is never experienced exactly the same by any two points of consciousness in Time or Space. This Ring of Love is the first time you feel Human, or feel a full part of your Species with acceptance of that position of Sentience. As the Fifth Ring of Love loses any emphasis on your Self as being fragmented, the Sixth Ring loses emphasis on Events or Issues as distractions. There begins to be seen only a vast sea of experiential paths that are interpreted by everyone differently. It is the simultaneous understanding that while you experience your world quite particularly, another fragment may never have experienced or interpreted it the same way or even remotely similarly. It is the realization that it has never been the Events, or Parts of Self that defined or created the Life, but simply, how well you loved it all. To move from Comprehension to Altruism, one would tend to experience True Compassion, or Empathy, for that which is being explored. And finally, the Seventh Ring of Love is AGAPE, reached through Altruism. At this Ring, there is no emphasis on anything. Complete acceptance is experienced, with absolute loss of condition, meaning, reference, and definition. As the Sixth Ring developed a lack of emphasis on Events, and the Fifth Ring lost emphasis on Self, this final Ring removes ALL emphasis beyond the allowance of EXPERIENCE. Agape is PEACE. This Ring is related to the all-encompassing, boundless Higher Moving Center, or Tao. This is the Ring of realization that ALL of your life was Created by you or Allowed by you, and that not only is there nothing Wrong or Separate, but that EVERYTHING IS PERFECT in its own way. We will add that the Fifth Ring of Love is marked biologically through the experience of Crying, or Tears, as this is the realization of Truth on some level. To acknowledge the Truth of anything is a higher Ring of Love. Furthermore, True Hate can be included in the Fifth Ring, as Hate is a powerful form of Intimacy and recognition of Truth. The Sixth Ring of Love is marked biologically through True Pleasure and what most would call Happiness, as these states are an experience of lacking fragmentation and self-acceptance in the moment. The 7th Ring of Love is marked biologically through the experience of True Laughter, or the recognition of Oneness among all. The power of Tears, Pleasure, and Laughter are simple, accessible experiences to allow these Rings of Love to be experienced in many instances within the life, yet these biological interpretations of those Rings are difficult to sustain, understandably. (Note from Kasia: I've included relevant comments with additional channeling from the original post.) Comment by Geraldine B on February 15, 2010: Note to all those who attended either the Feb 14th 2010 Chat or Workshop, this is the article that was originally posted on the TLE group list. (Snickering at Troy -- you couldn't find it here, either???) Note to those who didn't attend either event, nor the NYC Live group, there is a wealth of material that is part of the chat transcript and I can think of no topic more fraught with imprinting and false beliefs than love, yet so fundamental to the very structure of life itself. I'm going to jump the gun, so to speak, and publish the transcript in here -- and let Troy publish in the regular Transcript forum with whatever edits and tweaks he might want to add for the permanent record. Geraldine Note from TLE Admin: Geraldine is referring to this transcript: Michael Speaks: on Love
  7. Note from Janet: This was pulled from a ning forum as re-posted by Geraldine in 2009. Since the original material was obtained within days of the event, I have added it to the collection of 2001 transcripts. Since we are coming up on the 9/11 Anniversary, and I came across this "Reissue" of the World Trade Center Report -- I'm including it verbatim as posted on the group list. Its point of reference is Sept 11, 2004 with a reissue of the report written and posted on Sept 21, 2001. With the 3rd year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks coming up, and the Republican Convention looming, and with a rise in recent requests to dig out this original Q&A with Michael, I have decided to send out this report for discussion. Reading it again after all of this time is strange and comforting, and now I have plenty more questions I feel I can ask. Please offer discussion and feedback at your convenience! I am sending this in an email and as a Word Document. Part of the editing I did was add Footer Notes to help define or explain some of the more complicated terminology. Make sure you ask me if you need any clarification of this article. Have a great day! Love, Troy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MICHAEL ON 9/11 This channeling took place ten days after the WTC attack. No other channeling had been publicly offered by that time and I felt it was very important to gain a metaphysical perspective of the event as soon as possible (for my own sake, if for no other reason). Some grammatical editing has occurred since the original sharing. ORIGINAL LETTER: Hello all, This channeling is by no means complete or even that useful, but here is what I got so far. I felt the clarity of connection to Michael opening and took advantage of that, even though I have been deeply affected by physically seeing the event unfold, including seeing one of the towers collapse before my eyes. This channeling may conflict with other channel’s work, but I only ask that you use each piece offered by channels as parts of the same event as described in the dark. Maybe a whole picture could come from that. I am also embarrassed to say that I am in no way an historian and I do not feel comfortable going too far into historical information. I have no clue if "wenis" (what the hell kind of name is that??) or teti are real and part of that time frame (I can't do any internet research from here to validate the channeling), so I am putting this out there with a gamble. PLEASE be gentle, but I would also love any insights to be shared, or questions to be asked, if more information is wanted. Since I posed the question to Michael broadly (“Michael, please comment on this event”), they responded from multiple angles. I am sure some of you can come up with far better, more direct questions. I will do my best to be here and share I what I get. Love, Troy Ps. You are welcome to share this piece with other lists and include credits, of course. I want the right person to be scoffed at! Ha ha... 092101 Michael on the terrorist attack of 091101 MICHAEL: We doubt we will bring much solace to the reality of events that took place on September 11, 2001 in the United States, but we can provide what we are able to gather as the dynamics behind the event, what those dynamics might mean literally and symbolically, and where events may go from there. We have experienced our own tragedies and losses while we were extant and fragmented, feeling deep grief, loss, confusion, and pain over events that were relative to our own progress on Earth. We bring this up to remind you that we have not forgotten what it means to be in a body and a part of humanity. The fact that we are in a position to view events from a Causal perspective does not diminish the process that is part of being Physical. Life can be painful. We remember. We will begin with the dynamics behind this event: This event is one of tangled, yet elegantly-played out Karma between Cadres, Fragments, and Countries. There are symbolic properties to this event, but first we will address the various players as they are known at this time. We will describe them in terms of our system. The fragments involved in the collapse of the World Trade Center were nearly-entirely from the same Cadre. There were other fragments involved from outside of that single Cadre, but most who perished were from entities within Cadre 9, Energy Ring 7[*] . Cadre #9’s are always in the DISCIPLINE Position[†] within its own Energy Ring. Incidentally, nearly all fragments from Energy Ring 7 are involved in some way with the major political positions of the world of the current time. The Discipline Position is defined as the influence that heightens the awareness of the decision making process. People who are in the Discipline Position in your life do not “ride you”, so to speak, nor to they discipline you in the traditional sense of the word, forcing the fulfillment of plans. They simply help create or generate scenarios that bring awareness to the impact of decisions and choices. DISCIPLINE helps see the end results of decision making, often highlighting the far-reaching impact. Through any means available, the Discipline Position will focus on helping move others through procrastinations and distractions toward a more purposeful goal. DISCIPLINE always shows you the road of original intent and keeps you "awake". While this Cadre 9 is the Discipline Position within its own personal Energy Ring, it has also taken upon itself that same position symbolically for the world. Nearly all Cadre #9’s will feel a deep motivation to play their parts in their own Energy Rings as a Discipline theme and this motivation will be amplified by this event. Many fragments who are organizing actions for fund-raising, protests, and even further attacks in the shadow of this tragedy are from Cadre 9 of other Energy Rings. The Configurations[‡] on each jet liner were Septets[§], consisting of Cadence Mates[**] of various forms. For example, two groups of 5 have been brought to light and these are all Warrior Fragments within the same Cadences within their own Entities. These two groups of 5 are missing the other members of their Configuration/Cadence (2 fragments missing from each group). Another two groups of 4 were of varying Roles from within a single Cadre and from different Entities. The latter Cadence/Configuration consists of one Cadence/Configuration being the 33rd Fragment from each Entity within that Cadre; the other Cadence/Configuration consists of the 107th fragments of each Entity from within that Cadre. Each of these groups of 4 is missing 3 members each from the Cadence/Configuration. The missing fragments from each Septet appear to be discarnate. It is important to note that it just happens to be that the Septet Configurations are made up of actual Cadences. This is not always the case. A Septet can be made up of any fragments from anywhere, while a Cadence doesn’t necessarily create a Configuration. There were many other Septet Configurations involved that day, but they were diverted without much mention in the media. We are aware of at least 10 other hijackings that were diverted that morning, all unwittingly and/or specifically removed from the count for fear of a larger panic. We also believe the actual count of those who perished in the World Trade Center will be higher than the factual count. (Note: the number originally assumed dead turned out to be much lower in the end) The fragments on each jet liner who perished did so for their own “reasons”, of course. It may be obvious to many of our Students that this event in nearly all its manifestations was not a Karmic Balance, but rather a Karmic Creation. Those who perished in the Pentagon were most involved with the burning of Karmic Ribbons, but nearly all others involved were not. The Karmic Ribbons of those in the Pentagon and Philadelphia crashes were shared in various fashions between the hijackers, the passengers, the families connected, and occupants of the one building. We encourage you to “feel” the difference between the World Trade Center energy and the energy of the other two attacks. You may sense the difference then between Karmic Balance and Karmic Creation. The complexities of all the Ribbons created and/or burned is a topic unto itself and we would offer discussion of this angle if our students wish. The fragment who is the media’s focal point of responsibility behind this entire event is Osama bin Laden, a 5th Level Young King with Priest Casting, an Idealist in Observation Mode sliding to Perseverance, Moving Centered, Intellectual Part, with Chief Features of Stubbornness and Arrogance, with a discarnate Priest Essence Twin, and 3 Task Companions consisting of all Servers, Server Cast. He is from Energy Ring 5, Cadre 9, and Entity 6. This fragment, ironically, is acting primarily from his True Personality[††], completely true to his Soul Age and Level. Whether this is compatible with the rest of the world is not the consideration of a Young Soul. There are many atrocious fragments in history who were living from the Positive Poles of their Overleaves. The 5th Level of any Soul Age is entirely about creating Karma and pushing the boundaries of limitations that have been instilled from previous generations. The 5th Level in the Young Soul Cycle is going to push these boundaries and limitations within the playground of competition and physical effect. Though this fragment is enthralled in creating Karma, this event was inspired by a Karmic Ribbon shared between himself and the current President of the United States. We will address this in a moment. This King fragment truly believes his mission is guided by and supported by his god, and we would say it would be hard for him to think differently, considering the near-consistent successes and uncannily smooth implementation of his plans being fulfilled across time. He feels his god is on his side. Though his actions are corrupt in relation to the more loving paths that could be chosen, so are the many things that have led this fragment into the position in which he believes himself to be. Part of his motivation stems directly from actions and choices made by the collective choices of the U.S. as they affect his beliefs and country. This is not our stance of justification, merely a reminder that this situation has a larger dynamic than what is seen on the superficial level. This leads us to the crux of this Karmic situation: the culmination of a high-profile Karmic balance between the Late Baby Scholar fragment who is George Bush, Jr. and Late Young King Fragment known as Osama bin Laden. The Karma between them is a Major Ribbon seeking to be burned, though many more Karma will likely be created in the process, which is not unusual for the early Soul Ages. A side note: It may appear that the fragment who is now George Bush, Jr. would be a Warrior, or at least a Young or Mature Soul, but these deductions are based on outward characteristics that can be attributed to generic interpretations of our terminology. This Scholar does have strong Warrior imprinting and is Warrior-Cast, however. It may appear this Scholar is strategic, but the strategies are those of his strong Support Circle. This is not to say that the Scholar does not agree with or contribute to these strategies, but for the most part this fragment would be lost without that support and direction. It may also appear that this fragment is bent on eager Young Soul values or identifying Mature Soul equality and fairness, but these qualities are only a relaying of that which is being expressed through him of others’ ideals. Stripped of this strong circle of support, this fragment is terrified and confused as to what is going on beyond his personal world. The Karma between the King and the Scholar originated in Egypt, nearly 4000 years ago at the beginning of the 6th Dynasty. The King fragment, known then as Wenis, was murdered by those directly assigned by the Scholar fragment who was then known as Teti. Investigating this history (which appears to be accurately recorded) should shed light on this now-escalated Karmic event. The destruction of the icon of the World Trade Centers parallels a past bold erection of the Pyramid of Teti, which also collapsed in a pile of rubble, killing many. The memory and records of Wenis and all of his fine contributions to the kingdom led him to be equated with the god, Osiris. Those who “follow” Osama now are those who revered him as Wenis/Osiris then. Teti is obscured by history and found to be a minor, if not negligible, leader in history. That same Scholar intends to be “remembered this time”, despite the repeated fall of his “pyramids”. We remind you that this channel is not one of our stronger historians, but we do believe enough information has been conveyed that extrapolations can be made on your own. The symbolic archetype from this event is, of course, the dance of the ancient concepts of “Good Vs Evil”. This is where the Baby Scholar’s own contributions come in, creating a scenario of War against an Evil Enemy with a Twisted God. Ironically, with further education about the “Evil” being fought, most fragments extant and part of the Mature Soul consciousness shift will begin to empathize with the motivations behind the troubled, religious zeal of the turbulent lands where the “Evil” comes from. Another level of the symbolism of this event is in seeing this as playing out the continued global shift to Mature Soul Consciousness. Though Young and Baby Souls are the catalyst, their motivations nicely dove-tail with the larger picture of Soul Age transition on the planet. Nearly all fragments who perished in the Pentagon and in Philadelphia are in part of their normal process of review and after-death experiences. The members of the Cadre of fragments involved in the World Trade Center collapse are variously, in hundreds of Configurations, completing Tasks that are part of a larger picture. Each fragment will examine his or her Personality and most recent life as each fragment senses a completion of his or her Task after death. Most of the Configurations within the Cadre who “died” include fragments from other Cadres who are still extant, and the discarnate fragments are acting as Inspiration, Expression, Action or Assimilation influences within these groupings. The probabilities as they extend from this point are still volatile and precarious. War of some sort is nearly imminent, standing high in probability at 86%. How and where this will manifest is not clear. The probability of more terrorist attacks is quite high, as well, standing at 74%. We have said before, but will say again, that New York City has always had a high probability of chemical or biological weapons being unleashed on the city. Nearly 5 years ago we mentioned the probabilities would drop after 5 years; 2001 being the final year of that time frame, though now an even higher probability of manifesting is present (even if diverted). A biological attack would be quickly contained and have minor effects, but it is still high on the options for the terrorists local within the U.S. (note: as of August 2004, Michael says that the probability of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil is still high, around 70% probability, while the use of biological attacks in NYC have dropped to a 30% probability). One major terrorist plan of probability stands as the taking hostage of a small town (or various small towns) in the United States. Though the probability is fairly low at 48%, dropping from 67% 3 weeks ago, it is not shifting enough over these days for us to discount it. (note: as of August 2004, Michael states that the probability of small-town hijacking is at 48%) Small bombings and interruptions of communication and transportation will continue to be a primary means of attack, along with assassination attempts. (note: as of August 2004, Michael states that this probability is at 80%) (Probabilities are asked to Michael in terms of “will this happen again within 10 years?”) We do not share these probabilities as a means to express “doomsday mentality”, but rather to respond to the request and questions posed to us about this pivotal situation on your planet. Please remember that the long-term effects from this event and its shadows may have the world in a far more peaceful, tolerant, and humble state of mind and heart eventually. Though this violent type of growth for a population is not necessary, it is the choice of many to experience that drama, adventure, emotional embracing and turmoil, and the excitement of such a precarious shift. Those qualities are the hallmark of early Mature Soul paths, even if within the context of Young/Baby wars. Many Americans were “bored” on all levels, but now nearly all fragments are “awake”. We have not seen such a vast manifestation of Essence and True Soul Ages in the United States before. This will not last, of course, but the potential for general peace and transformation is high, currently. A final mention of probability will be that the Scholar will most likely be directly involved (even if discarnate) in the rebuilding of “his pyramid” in place of the World Trade Center. The buildings may literally take pyramidal shape or a similar architecture to the Eiffel Tower, in a set of two or four buildings. Q&A 1) Could Michael comment on the reactions people have had, of pulling together, and of suddenly feeling like we are one family? I know they said a bit, but if there is any elaboration on this that can be made, any comment on this sudden state of being "Awake", I think it would be interesting. MICHAEL: The primary reaction/response that most fragments have found as a result of the terrorists' attack was a temporary shift into one or more of the Higher Centers. We have said many times that stress, anguish, and trauma tend to be some of the few ways any fragment finds their way to the Higher Centers, except in the case of the Higher Moving Center, which is specifically designed to be accessible without much effort. For nearly 7 days following the events of September 11, most fragments were dealing with the effects of general, Higher Centered processing, mostly dealing with Truth (higher intellectual) and Love (higher emotional), and finding applicable ways to blend these realizations with Beauty/Energy (higher moving). It is not uncommon to have periods of time wherein the focus of a population may be from one of the Higher Centers, but it is rare that nearly an entire planet moves into one Higher Center, let alone all three. Tears are the biological reactions to Truth, and a great deal of Truth was revealed to many fragments in the wake of this disaster. Some realizations include: The "fragility" of life; unnecessary social facades; assumed isolations; the lack of Needs met within the life for self and for others; the importance of reaching out; the loss of Community over time; the forgotten importance of family and loved ones; mortality; Life Tasks and where you are in your life; Internal Monad processing; pointlessly-held anger and resentments toward self and others; who are the major Support Positions (primarily the Intimates, but all came under examination); that everything will change and nothing is permanent; what is important, in general, etc. The tears shed across the world after this disaster are personal and we only suggest the above phrases because they stand out to us, but there are many more Truths that are being examined. Every person had the opportunity to be free from their Chief Feature during those days, experiencing fully what their particular Chief Feature tends to create fear around. We remind you that your Chief Feature (fear aka “your protector”) is defined by a habitual, yet an unnecessary, protection against something NORMAL in life. In the 7 days following September 11, 2001, every individual had the opportunity to experience the very thing they struggle to protect themselves from habitually. For instance, Arrogance fears Vulnerability: those with this Chief Feature allowed themselves to fully experience Vulnerability without fear. Those who have Self-deprecation allowed themselves to experience Inadequacy (which leads to surrender). Experiencing a total sense of unknowing can free the Personality. Usually this kind of surrender is feared, but those 7 days allowed the Personality to accept that position in life, briefly, but without fear. Stubbornness usually fears Change, but as is obvious, the disaster would not allow a fragment with this fear to dismiss the reality that Change is imminent, constant, unpredictable, and sometimes sudden. Self-destruction fears Worthlessness, but there was a great amount of insight gained for several days, allowing those fragments to realize that what is normally seen as "worthless", including themselves, actually has high value in the context of a life that is lived while awake. Greed fears Lack, but those several days allowed one to realize how much one has, even if just for a moment in time. Impatience fears Time (more specifically, losing control of Time), but realized how very precious the Time has been that was actually spent (or how better to spend it). Martyrdom fears Space (more specifically, losing control of that space), but realized how good they have their life (or how good they could have it, with a slight attitude adjustment), even with the fragment's complaints, chaos or redundancy in the current life. On the whole, anything unnecessarily being carried in the Instinctive Center[‡‡] was released by most fragments. For those 7 days the Higher Intellectual Center of most fragments was highly-stimulated and examined, followed immediately by a stream of stimulation to the Higher Emotional, leading many to examine exactly what it is in the life that brings Pleasure and True Love, and how these can be appreciated, expressed, and given more appropriately. These realizations are now settling in with the Higher Moving Centered experiences of Oneness and camaraderie. Most of the world is experiencing itself for the first time as "One", even if pitted against a vaguely perceived enemy and even if not “on the same side”. Countries have felt this synchronization occasionally, but not the entire world. It is not random that people tend to describe some of the events since the attack as "moving", since this is the center related to feeling one with another. We remind you that although the entire world shifted into a Higher Centered perception, how that is experienced and expressed can differ greatly among continents, cultures and even neighborhoods. "Real life" is moving back into routine for most fragments now, and what was learned from the Higher Centers will either be dismissed or applied profoundly. Nevertheless, it will be long time before the experience is forgotten, if at all. When that many people are synchronized, nothing is ever the same after that. 2) What, if anything, can those of us who do feel our compassion and wider awareness awakened here do to bring some good to the situation? MICHAEL: As events unfold, the impact from these recent events will be proportional to how much resistance there is to the concepts of the Mature Soul. The Positive manifestation of Mature Soul energy might not be obvious as it shows up through what is normally interpreted as "corny" or "syrupy" or "sentimental" and even "weak" or "passive" but still sharing connection, empathy, and progress. The Negative manifestations of the Mature Soul concepts might show up in emotional devastations, submersion into “reality” broadcasts, massive events of deaths and disasters, and global or local tragedies that make the headlines more often. Older Souls may find themselves responding from distrust and typical cynicism, returning to the "old codger" way of living within a hermitted life, or they may choose to adapt a personal "lightness in their step" as they flow with their more spiritual and trusting nature. Mature Souls will respond dramatically no matter what happens, but this will either manifest insularly and protectively or through the need to reach out. Younger Souls (we include troubled Late-level Baby Souls) will be the most resistant and troublesome over the next 5 years or so, as everything that has been held dear in the established routine of standards changes drastically. Balanced Baby Souls will be turning to the Mature and Old Souls for direction and guidance, tuning their lives to the Mature Soul as their new Authority. We will comment for the Mature and Old Souls as to what might be able to be done to "bring some good to the situation": If you are a Mature Soul (or an Early Old Soul, Level One or Two), it would not be surprising to find yourself suddenly surrounded by Baby Souls seeking your life as a haven. Do not hesitate to share your spirituality, your concepts of life and how you live it, if you choose to take on that responsibility. Find your own spiritual haven and implement this as a regular part of your life. We suggest the Unitarian Church, study groups incorporating your search and philosophies, hobby groups, anything that includes you in a regular group activity of healing or spirituality. Reach out to family, friends, and strangers, spending more quality time exchanging and sharing and supporting. If you are an Older Soul (Level 3 or older) it is time to implement all of your knowledge to-date, and we do not limit this to the current life. You are the sum total of all lives lived to this point, and we suggest assuming your ancientness as something worth trusting. The world is still not ready to embrace the values of the Old Soul, but there is an opportunity here to help your fellow Humans through troubling experiences you know as all too familiar from other lifetimes. The Older Soul knows there is a choice in every instance as to how the life can be seen, created, and experienced. We suggest that the Older Souls practice releasing attitudes of fear and distrust. We suggest acknowledging the overall picture, practice feeling the greater motion of the Tao, recognizing the events unfolding as a collective choice and part of a larger pattern of certain progress. For now, this can best be done by creating "vividry" in your daily routine. This simply means to slow down your consciousness for a few moments, widen your eyes, release any tension in your face, shoulders, neck, hands, tongue, legs, and experience FULLY the environment you are in at that moment. It will not matter where or when you are, the effects will be profound after some time. Look closely at every texture, color, face, while feeling/sensing your own skin and looking at your body as this amazing extension of the "you" who is observing. Recognize that all people around you are their own ideas, manifested. Marvel at the creativity of these souls and personalities, trusting in their process as part of the Tao. Creating vividry in the moment can help you align with your own Essence and the potential Higher Center Energy that is available to you. The greatest contribution Older Souls have for the planet at this time is to "hold consciousness" (or vividry) right where you are, with as much generated compassion, trust, and acceptance as possible. This has the potential to incorporate a potential matrix of "safety" for all fragments who prefer to choose other than the more violent, tragic paths. We do not suggest this activity as a means to “protect from” or “fight against” the times, or as a means to save yourself and others from some vague threat, but more as an opportunity of choice to simply "float to the top" of the turbulence, releasing your energetic investments in any chaos. If you have not successfully navigated the 4th Internal Monad, or if you are under the age of 40, it may be more appropriate to take the Mature Soul stance we suggested above. You will know what is more appropriate, even if you feel a need to combine the ideas. Whatever your choice, all includes recognition of Others as Self. To summarize: Older Souls lighten up; and Mature Souls, reach out. The path to agape has just potentially "shortened" for your species. We cannot save you from yourselves, but we can assure you that there is nothing to lose when your choices include truth, love, and oneness as often as possible. As usual, we remind you that all is chosen and all choices are valid. We offered our perspective, not as instruction, but as a response to your question. We have no investment in how you choose, because we will see you through to the end of any path. END In reference to Michael commenting on the karma between Bush and bin Laden: COMMENT/QUESTION: Oooohh, I resent being caught up in personal karma between these two! Or at least, I would resent it, if I weren't so full of LOVE and COMPASSION and UNIVERSAL FELLOW FEELING. Hmmph. But why couldn't they have agreed to work it out on more intimate terms? Why do the rest of us have to get dragged into it? MICHAEL: We do not believe the current scenario is one that was planned or agreed upon before the life began. During times of great shifting in Soul Ages, there are multitudes of potential scenarios to help perform the catalyst for permanent implementation of the newer perceptions. A Soul Age shift on a planet requires a catalyst, whether positively or negatively implemented and any Soul Age group may contribute to that. The fragments who have shown interest in being that catalyst have nearly all been late Baby or Young Souls. Examining the events of major media shocks of an emotional nature across the past 7 years or so will reveal that truth. The greatest catalyst before the attack on the World Trade Center was the "Columbine Shootings". To be the catalyst for change while completing personal agenda is not only highly appealing to fragments, but creates enormous leaps of possibility for the fragments involved. Most who are directly involved on such a scale of shift literally condense their progress through the Soul Ages by several lives. Both of the fragments in question [Bush/bin Laden] are past the mid-points of their Soul Age, both near the end of their current levels. We believe their 7th Levels will be reached within a few lives or so. Although it would appear to be unfortunate, many find the greatest opportunities for progress and growth in the excitement of danger, war, death, trauma, and general anxiety. We believe this to simply be the nature of the soul as it progresses through the discovery of more comfortable forms of growth. In a world where it is acceptable to the Personality to harm many forms of life as a means of convenience, to exploit as a means to gain knowledge and ensure comforts, it may not be surprising that Essence then has no reference for what might be a more compassionate form of growth and progress on a larger scale. In other words, when compassion is so severely limited within a species, Essence has not gained experiences enough to know that pain and struggle and suffering do not have to be “normal”. We remind you that your lifetimes contribute to your Essence's growth and it processes ONLY what it learns from/through the Personality. Compassion for self begins first, extending then to your family, community, other species, other kingdoms, and eventually to your entire species. The average level of compassion on your planet is currently limited to a community level. Essence is only intelligent from a "higher perspective" because of what it can glean from all the lives lived to that point. It is not “all-knowing” or even “all-loving” to a point that negates the need for growth; if that were the case, incarnating would be pointless. Essence is LEARNING. From YOU. If its basic input to-date has been from the experiences of self-preservation, then the contexts in which the newer Personality finds itself will be using that as a base. It is up to the new personality (your current self) to grow beyond what Essence has learned so far. Many Older Souls are drawing from that primary base of self-preservation because the scale of this event is larger than what is in their own instinctive history across time. Self-preservation has sufficed to this point in your planet's growth, but with this catalyst, combined with the immediate access to the world-at-large, more than self-preservation of the immediate life and environment are being drawn in. In other words, regardless of the age of your Soul, a level of realization for the need for compassion beyond your own community, responsibility in choices, and emotional accessibility is new to everyone. TO EVERYONE. Each Cadre, Entity, and Fragment will learn their own versions of what growth means, and this is why there is no standard or external force waiting to "grade", approve, or "pass" you. When you are done learning what you want, you are done, ON YOUR TERMS ALONE. There are no exceptions. In light of that, we would suggest that as the planet progresses in average Soul Age and population, the more "advanced" the lessons you will begin to seek. All of you present currently “wanted” to be present for this shift, regardless of how it feels now. You would not be involved on any scale if there was not agreement between Essence and Personality on some level to endure this event. The versions of you in this parallel[§§] were highly interested in "something" acting as a strong enough catalyst to being people into the awareness of the planet as a Whole, and to provide a more sudden excuse/justification for coming together. The attempts were originally, passively made in what you call "reality television", the numerous school shootings, Princess Diana's death, and several other events and films, but those were too gradual for most tastes. This recent event did what no other event has. It re-humanized the world. Previous to this, there was only the Young Soul context for interaction in that each feared that another was only out to "use you", "get something", or simply to impose on you. We have seen a 70% drop in this mentality across the planet within these past two weeks. These kinds of barriers do not drop momentarily, they are nearly always permanent. Your choices will lead from here. -Michael ORIGINAL FINAL NOTE FROM TROY: I am glad some of you are getting something from the report. It only skims the surface of the situation, I know, and I am aware when channeling that there is a vast amount of information to be obtained. I seem to be remaining connected to Michael even while not in full focus and there is a weight of information sitting there. Most of it is probably not necessary to know, but some of it will get through appropriately, either through me or other channels. I'd like to refine the details of the Cadres and Entities involved, since that was a rough draft of the situation. This reminds me: MBV SAYS: If a cadre/energy ring working through discipline could cause such destruction, what might they have done if they put their minds to a cure for cancer or something of that sort? TROY: I wanted to clarify that I did not get the impression that the Cadre was the CAUSE of the destruction in any way!! I got the impression that a situation was going to occur in some way, some how, and this Cadre ELECTED to be part of that, not really “knowing” how it would eventually unfold. This was a collective event, albeit using as a catalyst the Karma between George and Osama. And as far as a cure for Cancer; I think that is the same thing as asking what the cure for Fear is. When we can erase fear, then illness will probably have no home. I'd like to look further into the person who is Osama and his history, what is motivating him from other angles than Karma with George. Anyway, I am doing my best, and will continue to try! Love, Troy (This document was grammatically edited and re-sent to groups in August 2004) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [*] This Cadre/Entity system is based on the “classic” (Michael’s) version, not “shepherd’s”. 1 Energy Ring = 12Cadres = 84Entities; Michael is from Energy Ring #1, Cadre 11, Entity 4, while most who are currently part of the Michael Teachings as Students are in Energy Ring #2; Energy Rings are grouped in 12 called a Division, as well. This may conflict with other channels, but we will figure it out someday; I apologize for any discrepancies. Some channels number the Energy Rings consecutively with no groupings. One channel I know of has labeled Michael’s Cadre and most of our own Cadres in the same Energy Ring #14.
  8. 120M Live Session - 2013.01.24 MEntity: Hello to you, I. We are here, now. We may begin our exchange with you. Q: Hello. Please elaborate on the functions of the Moving and Higher Moving Centers, and their 7 Parts MEntity: The Moving and Higher Moving Centers, both, govern the conduction, direction, and form of energies. The Lower Center tends toward the management of Matter, while the Higher Center tends toward the management of the matrix for that matter. The Moving Center's spectrum is described as functioning between the Positive Pole of PRODUCTIVE, and the Negative Pole of FRUSTRATIVE. PRODUCTIVE is meant to describe the result of an action that is intentionally, or unexpectedly, beneficial. FRUSTRATIVE is meant to describe the results of an action that are not beneficial, despite intention or expectation. The Higher Moving Center's spectrum is described as functioning between the Positive Pole of BEAUTY, and the Negative Pole of DESIRE. BEAUTY is meant to describe the recognition of patterns, and their subsequent benefits and fulfillments. DESIRE is meant to describe the trust of impulse that generates those patterns. Lower Centers' Negative Poles can tend to be emphasized as a result of fear, but the Higher Centers' Negative Poles are merely a more focused version of the Positive Pole. They are not affected by fear, but fear can keep one from accessing the Positive Pole of that Higher Center. Negative Poles are merely a more exclusive part of something being described. For instance, DESIRE is not "negative" in the sense that it is wrong, but more that while DESIRE is a trust in impulses, it has yet to recognize the patterns that are being generated from those impulses. BEAUTY, then, is inclusive of Impulses, but knows the BEAUTY of the bigger picture, patterns, and the fulfillment and benefit of those. Fear cannot squash someone's DESIRES, but can cause them to distrust those DESIRES, turning them into longing and aching, or distorting them, or replacing them with compulsions, rather than impulses. Keep in mind that we are describing these Centers as experienced from Personality. The Moving Center manages all energy that moves through the body, which includes the energy generated by the Intellect and the Emotions. Most tend to presume that Emotions are "feelings," but in technical terms, any "feeling" one has is because of the Moving Center's translation of the energy generated by the Intellect or Emotion. It is giving form to that energy. It is conducting that energy. The Personality manages the Lower Centers, and Essence manages the Higher Centers. This means that one always has the choice as to how one "feels" about anything. It is often presumed that one cannot control or choose one's feelings, but that is wholly untrue. Feelings are no different from any other action conducted by the body. When one kicks a dog, it is not because his leg betrayed him. When one feels bad, sad, or angry, it is not because of something that has more control over you than you do. One can always choose how to direct energy that is flowing through the body. When one does not choose how to direct energy that is flowing through the body (and the life, by extension), it can lead to Frustration. When one chooses to manage the energy that flows through the body, and the life, it can lead to Productivity. Choosing how to manage feelings is not the same thing as denying them, or repressing them. Managing feelings is no different from the choices that manage any other movement. For instance, if one is in a hurry to get from one destination to the next, one does not have to do so while putting oneself and others in danger. It is not necessary to crash the car. Careful driving, regardless of the necessity for speed, is of utmost importance for reaching the destination, if you will. And so it is with feelings. One can feel angry, sad, even happy and excited, while not losing the fulfillment of intended and beneficial patterns. The key is in differentiating between ACTION and REACTION. Sadness and anger, for instance, can be directed with action, but when sadness or anger are directing you, then you are in reaction. Allowing one to have any feeling that is generated is important, but keeping those from generated reactions is important if one wishes to maintain the capacity to choose. Every feeling is information, but they are not the truth. Feelings are a form of navigation, which is managed, primarily, by the Moving and Higher Moving Centers. The Moving Center helps one to navigate through the senses, and through feelings generated by those senses. The Higher Moving Center is used by Essence for navigating larger patterns of incarnations and their matrix. The more one Manifests Essence, the more one's DESIRE is acted upon, and the more one tends to see the BEAUTY of his or her life, self, and body. In the same way that Feelings can be managed in healthier ways by discerning between Action and Reaction, one's DESIRES can be managed and directed in healthy, beneficial ways by discerning between Impulses and Compulsions. Impulses are attractions, magnetic, and inviting, whereas Compulsions are demanding, distracting, and consuming. Impulses are quieter and more easily ignored because they are inclusive of your capacity to choose. Compulsions are louder and difficult to ignore, often dismissing your capacity to choose. If one were to manage Feelings and DESIREs by discerning between Reactions/Compulsions vs Actions/Impulses, one would navigate the life with the utmost capacity for benefit and fulfilled intentions. CENTERS are our way of describing a Personality's "center of gravity." By this we mean that the Personality tends to use that Center as a means for input from the world around him or her, and tends to return to that Center, regardless of the call for the use of any other Center. PARTS are our way of describing how the input from the Center is then output back into the world. So if one is Moving Centered, Intellectual Part, he might take in the world through stimulation, senses, feeling, and actions, then organize that input through thoughts, ideas, and expression. No Center is literally divided into parts. That is merely a description of convenience. Instead, the Center and Part describe the circuit of input/output that is habitual for the Personality. The "part" is merely the output, and is processed through the actual Center that the part describes. So the Moving Center/Intellectual PART simply means that life is taken in through the Moving Center and then goes back out into the world through the Intellectual Center, itself. The Personality and Physical Body is only capable of being Centered in a Lower Center and Lower Part, but has full access to the Higher Centers and their Parts throughout the life, both intentionally and through trauma. The Personality and Body cannot sustain Centering in the Higher Centers as they cannot process that energy for any sustained length of time. This sustained centering in a Higher Center is unnecessary anyway, as they are for the functioning processes of Essence. Or rather, the ROLE in Essence. If one thinks of the Essence as having polarities described by the Personality and Role, with the Personality being the more focused and exclusive end of the spectrum of Essence, and the Role being the broader and more inclusive end of the spectrum of Essence, then you may see why the Lower Centers are for Personality to process those denser energies, and the Higher Centers are for the Role to do so. So the Lower PARTS of the Higher Center are those that of Personality, and the Higher PARTS of a Lower Center are those of Essence/Role. The Moving Center and its Parts might be described as manifesting in this way, then: Moving Center/Moving Part – pure stimulation, physical ecstasy, and extreme, consuming, and absolute pain Moving Center/Intellectual Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then organized into thoughts, ideas, plans, strategy, and expression. Act/react First, then Conclude Ideas, Insights, and Reasons from those actions/reactions. Moving Center/Emotional Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then used to inspire (provoke) particular interpretations, feelings, and perceptions around him or her. Act/React First, then conclude what perceptions and sentimentality one wishes to inspire in others/self Moving Center/Higher Moving Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then fed directly to Essence and turned over to the greater patterns of the life. Total Trust. Moving Center/Higher Intellectual Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then fed directly to Essence for sorting into the levels of Truth. Total Authenticity/Honesty. Moving Center/Higher Emotional Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then delivered directly to Essence for greater context. Total Inclusion. Moving Center/Instinctive Part – navigation based in local experience, imprinting, anticipated and remembered pains and pleasures. Higher Moving Center/Higher Moving Part – Tao, the spark or pure Essence. Total Resonance. We must correct a previous statement: Higher Moving/Higher Moving are Physical/Buddhic Bodies. Higher Moving Center/Higher Intellectual Part – Causal and Mental bodies, communication with Entity and Cadre. Total Truth. Higher Moving Center/Higher Emotional Part – Astral and Buddhic bodies, processing of inspirational threads and reflections that span from fragmentation to union. Total Clarity. We must correct a previous statement: Higher Moving/Higher Emotional are Astral and Messianic Bodies. Higher Moving Center/Moving Part – manages the health of the Physical Body and its use of energy, fuel, and fulfillment of desires. Impulses are most obvious here, as well as Compulsions. This is the Part that helps to fulfill Agreements, Karma, and Monads. Higher Moving Center/Intellectual Part – manages the health of one's clarity in communication, behaviors, and expressions regarding intimacy, honesty, ethics, "morality," and discipline. This is the Part that helps to activate Agreements, Karma, and Monads. Higher Moving Center/Emotional Part – manages the health of one's clarity of perception, dreams, aspirations, visions. This is the Part that helps to magnetize and attract Agreements, Karma, and Monads. Higher Moving Center/Instinctive Part – navigation based in non-local experience, such as past lives, Essence reviews, unresolved or anticipated Karma, Monads, and Agreements. These are highly simplistic synopses of the Centers/Parts, but they help to describe the functions and basic emphasis of each combination. MEntity: Did this cover the whole of the original question, Ingun? Q: yes, I suppose so MEntity: There will always be more for us to elaborate upon, but this helps to have a starting point for more extrapolation. MEntity: Good day to you, then, I. We will conclude here. Q: good bye and thank you MEntity: Goodbye.
  9. December 6, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Centers and Body Types [Michael_Entity] We are here. Hello to all of you. We will begin with the Energy Report as we see it for the weeks of December 9 through the 22nd. It is, of course, not a coincidence that many of you have begun discussing the properties and personal experiences of the Centers, as many of you are shifting into next year’s basic Centering at this time. Though a year’s “Overleaves” are not defined entirely and are not static at any given time, there is an overall set that does appear to have influence over varying levels of consciousness, at least symbolically. In the case of Older Souls, that set of influences can begin to take place in the few months before the new year. We will also note an unusual phenomenon that is occurring for all of you: currently, in such a short time span between them, another larger Nexus Shift occurs. It is not uncommon for great shifts to occur throughout a year, but another shift is beginning on the 10th, and another in January/February, while this is all following the large shift in November. These shifts with little “breaks” between them are creating a great amount of shifting in levels of Energy among your Overleaves and your ability to participate in the world. There appear to be distinct days when your energy seems quite inspired and above normal, while the next few will find you seeming to be locked in an infinite stream of constricting thoughts and low energy. For some this will feel like “limbo,” while for others this can feel “manic.” The Center for the next year, at this time, appears to be Moving, with bursts of Higher Moving. Unless you are Moving Centered, yourself, this is going to begin to feel like a time of shifting into OBVIOUS manifestations of what you are DOING. (We remind you that our Energy Reports are not predictions, they are merely comments on patterns and how you might be able to use them or dismiss them.) Having a field of Moving Centered Energy as the context for a period of time can mean a great deal of attention would be coming to the body and its relationship to its environment. We are speaking of its Physical environment, which can translate into a range from its sources of stimulation, affection, and activity, to its ability to use the finer energies that make up and create the Physical Plane. Some of you may begin to pull out your old copies of teachings which focus on the concepts of “creating your own reality” and take a more active approach to reality than usual. While others may begin to feel overwhelmed by the “responsibility” that the Moving Centers imply while Physical. Besides the fact of what you call “the holidays,” a stronger and stronger desire to be with those whom you care for and feel part of will begin to be a priority. If these basic trends continues and the next year continues with the Moving Centered theme, we will be able to comment more accurately on how it might manifest. For now, a primary theme appears to be those points we just mentioned, along with a heightened awareness of your food intake and ability to literally move (health). We will conclude the report here and take any questions about it before we discuss the Centers. [Kathryn] Many of us, myself included, have been feeling very drained and tired or just down lately. Is this the reaction to this energy report influence? [Michael_Entity] We don’t believe the Energy Report itself has any influence as such, but the Energy, itself, we are reporting about may very well be what you are responding/reacting to. For those who have any kind of health deficiencies, however minute, the Moving Center will markedly “force” the body into a position that is more inclined to facilitate recovery. This can be sleep, mental distraction, high activity, anger, etc., but it’s point is to facilitate recovery. Another important factor to consider is the inherent nature of any Nexus having a sedating effect on the Human body as realities shift and creativity on another level is affecting the body. You do “create reality,” and that still uses energy. Most of the time, that energy is being held preciously by the Personality for reasons it doesn’t even understand. The sedation and “tired phase” allows the “grip” to loosen and your reality can then free up some energy for changes to be made. Most of you have your Personalities quite in charge of your lives, even if it doesn’t quite “know” what to do. When a shift is needed and the Personality is choosing to work with Essence, the Personality will gladly concede and “take a nap.” At some point, in some lifetime, a shift will happen wherein the Personality and Essence are aligned enough that control is not shifted from one to the other, but is shared. If there are no other questions on the Energy Report, we will discuss CENTERING. We feel there is no need to introduce the Centering to you, as many of you are already fairly studied in this area of our teaching. We will, however, respond to all of your questions about this area so as to clarify and help with the application of the information. [MaryBV] How does centering affect memory? [Michael_Entity] ALL Centers have their form of Memory in storage and retrieval. The Intellect stores and retrieves memory in the form of Thoughts, Ideas, and is Visually interpreted. The Emotional memories are stored and retrieved in the form what are commonly understood as Feelings, Emotions, and are Aurally interpreted. The Moving stores and retrieves its memories in the forms of Health, Activity, and are Sensually interpreted. Each Center does affect how events are remembered; especially in the mixture of the Centering with the Part. The Intellect affects the memory with its level of beliefs and justifications; the Emotions affect memory with its sentimentality and attachments; the Moving affects the memory through its levels of vitality and productivity at the time. For each of these examples above, they are only part of how each Center may affect memory, and those factors always stem from the PRESENT (retrieval), not how or what was stored. Each Center is involved in Memory, of course, but the habitual Centering will affect how a fragment’s memory is used habitually. Each Ordinal Center is referencing memory of the current lifetime and physicality. If more information outside of that realm is required or resonating, it is then drawn through the Higher of that Center. The Instinctive Center is the communication medium between the Cardinal and Ordinal. Since the Instinct/Assimilation is usually maintaining the task of protection of the body, most memory filtered there is decidedly fearful or not. This is why most long-standing memories are either decidedly joyful or painful. We can continue to extrapolate on this topic, but we will ask if we are answering your question appropriate to your intent. [MaryBV] Well, I should have asked also how the role plays into this, but that is probably a topic for a whole discussion. [Michael_Entity] The Roles play little part in how memory is used or affected, since each lifetime sets a new design for the body and the Body/Personality is the tool for memory. The Essence’s choice of Overleaves is the most direct impact. Since Time is not a factor for Essence, it does not have the need for “memory” as it is experienced on the Physical Plane. [MaryBV] I see, so what accounts for smell/taste, etc., in memory? [Michael_Entity] Every Cell and Atom in your body has the ability to “remember,” which means it has the ability to re-create. When the Personality or Body calls on a memory to be reconstructed, it will call on these minute parts of self to participate. It is of no mystery that you can recall a scene in a movie, which is Visual, but it is no more a mystery for the other senses to have that ability to reconstruct, as well. [WickedBear] Could you discuss the fundamental differences between the two action centers? [Michael_Entity] The most fundamental difference is in that the Ordinal pertains to the immediate environment of the Personality and Body, while the Cardinal pertains to all that encompasses that. The Moving Center, then, would govern and process the events of the actual, Physical Body and its health, activity, manipulation of environment, etc. The Higher Moving Center would then govern and process those similar things, but as they pertain to larger patterns that include everything pertaining to the Essence. It could be said that the Moving Center is the manifestation/expression of that particular Personality’s part in the Higher Moving tapestry of the Essence. [Elf] Is the Part of Center chosen about the same time as the Centering? And what is most influential in that choice? [Michael_Entity] Centering is chosen by the age of 3 in most cases, while the Part/Trap is a habit by the age of 7 (approximately). The most influential aspect of that choice is in the major theme then settled on for the lifetime as to how to process events. The Center/Part becomes the Body’s primary strength and challenge, and sets the stage for relationships, health, and beliefs for the majority of the life. Depending on your Centering and Part, you will find that your PART/TRAP becomes the defining obstacle to hurdle in coming to peace with a lifetime. If the balance can be called upon for any Center, regardless of habit, then a great freedom is experienced within the lifetime. The first examination of this is in the 4th Internal Monad when the Part is either simply a Part, or continues to be the Trap. Most will find as the life progresses that the Part becomes the Trap, the more they ignore the need for that third Center to be incorporated. As part of the process for finding that balance, the neglected Center will eventually require attention. For those lacking in the Moving Center, then health, prosperity, material security, physical need for affection and validation can become stages for its balance. For those lacking in the Intellectual Center, then over-questioning, overwhelm, isolation, indecisiveness, and unacknowledged dependence on others for direction are examples of where the imbalance can show up. For those lacking in the Emotional Center, then alienation, hypercriticism, unacknowledged issues of rejection, can tend to be some of the arenas for balance. [Elf] Thank you. So the Part/Trap of Center is then somewhat a part of the Life Task? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the Centering/Part are intrinsically linked to the Tasks of the Life. Centering habits tend to define how the Personality uses its 4 “pillars,” of which the Life Task (True Work), is one of those pillars. Your True Rest is directly linked to the use of your neglected Center. Your True Work is directly relating to the Goal. The Centering/Part is not inherently a challenge to your Life Task, but it is a powerful definition of the path. And with that, we will conclude. Good Night.
  10. February 2, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello. We are here. One moment. For Open Floor nights, we do not have any opening statements, so if you would like to begin your queue, do so. [Hector07] I would like to know if you could perhaps give me some insight into how to open up my heart Chakra some more. [Michael_Entity] We will attempt to respond to this as personally as we can in this forum, but we are generally limited to responses beneficial to your little group as a whole. The “problem,” in this case, is not directly the result of a “closed” Heart/Emotional Center, but rather the restrictions on the Higher Emotional and Higher Moving Centers. You have been challenged on many levels within these Centers, leaving you with a great sense of disconnection from others and great challenges in understanding “where the love is” in many people’s actions. These are fundamental questions you are seeking to comprehend this lifetime. Many of your most intimate associations have been your greatest teachers in terms of contradicting everything you ever expected of love and intimacy. In the process, you have “closed” much of what might be reflective of a healthy 2nd and 6th Chakra, with the “heart” center being the most obviously imploded. Your Higher Intellect and Intellectual Centers, then, are carrying much of the processing of this lifetime, seeking grand reasons and insights and truths behind all that exists. But this is simply a pendulum swing in your growth and comprehension, not an indication of your conclusions. You have necessarily “closed” much of your feeling, vulnerabilities, sense of intimacy and responsibility in certain arena for purposeful healing. As you continue in your latest matedness, enduring the adventures and emotional drama that is part of that, you are actually opening these Centers commented on. You are learning that there can be drama, excitement, adventure, without your having to “pay a price” emotionally, though the emotions moved to the surface as a result may be “old” and seem to be generated from the present, they are not. We therefore state that the very concern you have with your questioning about the opening of the heart Chakra is, indeed, an indication of its movement toward balance. There are many other angles and responses we could have to this open-ended question, but we believe this will do for now. [Dewliet] Can “romantic” relationships form between incarnate fragments and discarnates they encounter on the astral? If so, how might this manifest in the waking hours for the incarnate individual? [Michael_Entity] Yes, these can occur, and do, for many late mature and old souls. The “romance” aspect is the Personality’s interpretation of this less-convoluted resonance [meaning, without bodies and personalities interfering between the two], but this interpretation is nearly impossible to remove from the equation. This “romance” can manifest in the waking state in many ways, ranging from mild preoccupation, to serious treatment of the relationship as “real,” to “going crazy.” ALL of you have these relationships in some way, but the treatment of them as significant or not is what determines their impact on the incarnate Personality. We point out here, as well, that fragments who have never met, but are both incarnate, can also share this experience on the Astral [often showing up in dreams], which can then be amplified in effect due to the physical plane and incarnate Personality of both fragments being involved. Most of these incidences of “romance” range from balancing Emotional Karma to simple misinterpretation of a resonance. [MaryBV] I am curious about the nature of the work that the Michael entity does. What is the purpose of the work and what is gained when a student learns a lesson the Michael entity teaches them? How does the Michael entity learn its lessons? [Michael_Entity] Our only “purpose” is to share and teach. This does not require any particular response from anyone beyond a general Agreement to “hear” us. Much like a Professor is present in a college with his knowledge and experience, regardless, but those who sign up for him may or may not choose to gain from that. Their presence allows him to teach, whether he is heard or not. What we believe is “gained” when there is comprehension, is a lack of preoccupation with the woes of life and a more peaceful focus on the life as it is lived. The need for control is dropped, the need for safety is dropped, the need for constancy is dropped, and the need for “more” is dropped. These of course relate to the chief features. Though we do not have an investment in your growth, we do find a sense of validation of what we, ourselves, have learned, when your implementation makes a difference you deem positive. We learn our lessons in the direction of comprehending the Tao; you learn your lessons in the direction of comprehending your life. What we “gain” from your growth and implementation is the Validation, which is required throughout the Physical, Astral, and Causal Planes as a means of progress. We learn our lesson in ways that may seem complicated to you, but we remain “stationary” in our growth until all fragments are in agreement on a Truth. This does not mean we find a reduced commonality, but rather we all “see” each other’s Truth and incorporate that meaningfully and without contradiction. The three levels of Truth exist through to this plane, and part of the progress through and beyond is in relinquishing the first two levels. This is a glimpse at our process, but a simplistic one and the images provoked are not necessarily accurate. The words are, but the images in general are limiting. [Shannon] Some weeks ago, we were all talking about parallel realities. Are all of us in this “room” or on the list in the “same” parallel, so it would be theoretically possible to physically meet one another? And would it be possible for someone in this parallel to communicate with someone in the parallel, just for example, where Al Gore won the American election? [Michael_Entity] If you are in any way making physical contact with another fragment, you are in the same parallel. We are specific when we say “physical contact”; the emphasis is on “contact.” Though you may see many visually in your environment, you are not necessarily in the same parallel. Your world is a “pool of energy” and many frequencies exist with which the brain must filter as a means to differentiate the various frequencies within the spectrum. On the level of “environment,” as in what might be seen accurately as your “props” or “background,” many of the people you see in the streets, tv, school, work, etc., are “not here.” For example, not all people shopping in a Supermarket are sharing the same Parallel, nor would an Airplane carrying its passengers. If verbal, physical, or visual acknowledgment on a significant level has been made, it is safe to say you share your parallel. All of you in this room, at this time, are sharing a parallel because the means of contact is still physical here and specific. This does not mean you will continue in the same parallel after contact. It would be easy to contact, through your imagination, a parallel of your own that is in an “Al Gore” parallel, but to contact another fragment entirely can be more confusing to all involved. The most direct method would be in imagining your parallel self, and then having that self contact a fragment within that parallel on your behalf. But, as you can see, this has the makings of a very confusing incident. We cannot emphasize enough how your use of imagination as a tool for examining parallels is valid and that simple. Imagining what it would “be like” in that parallel is your first step, then learning to differentiate between fantasy and vision, the negative and positive poles of Imagination, respectively. [Annette] Several of us within the group have been experiencing headaches and health/emotional difficulties this past week. Could you comment on the nature of these ills and what we can do to bring about better general health? [Michael_Entity] There are a few things generating these experiences for several late mature and old souls: The amount of death on the planet in an instant creates for many of you what might be considered a “psychic blow.” Many of you can “hear” those affected VERY deeply within your being. Since a conscious participation in the grief does not “make sense,” a headache results as you struggle with comprehension of a seemingly intangible energy surge. Another angle is that many of you are angry about what you consider to be the “wrong” parallel choice. With the election of Bush, many of you felt a sense of self-punishment was in order. This does not happen consciously, of course, but stems from the results of “bad choices” in your past wherein you were punished. As you grow to comprehend parallels and choices, many of you tend to amplify your need for sensing control, but this very knowledge makes you feel you lack it. As in, “why would *I* create this?!!” Part of your comprehension of Choice is in realizing it happens on many levels, not exclusively on your own. The scale of world events is a COLLECTIVE CHOICE. This does not mean you ultimately did not choose this, but that you might have passively found it curious and enticing, at the least, and are here for that reason. You CREATE reality or you ALLOW it. Both are valid. And another, yet not final, angle is simply that many of you are experiencing the implementation and shift from the Instinctive Centered Year to the Intellectual Center now. This created a surge, as well, that was difficult for some of you. [ludmila] My mother has senile dementia, depression and age-related schizophrenia and paranoia. She also sees ‘people’ not visible to others. What purpose is served, or lesson learned in being mentally ill? [Michael_Entity] In the same way that a person behaves a certain way when “drunk,” so does a fragment who loses their mental faculties. Their experience is the result of loss of inhibitions in many ways and a lack of the more acceptable social filters that allows community. Filters, as we will refer to them here, are created in the structuring of the brain during the Baby Soul Ages as a means to preserve community and society and civility. The Essence does not lose that lesson, but as the body matures, it cannot in many instances contain the constant instruction for filtering. Beliefs are the primary filters, in general, but there is also a specific “feed” from Essence that allows the body to experience its soul age. In many cases where the symptoms you described are experienced at the end of a life, it is the body’s reaction to a great deal of personal oppression within that lifetime. It’s purpose, then, is to “show” the Personality the gifts of comprehending freedom on a profound level before exiting. This will allow the transition to be more comfortable and acceptable, as well as the planning of the next lifetime to be of high consideration for including more play. For those around that fragment, the reactions to the fragment in question can be disconcerting as they process this. The symptom described as “paranoia” is actually “comprehension”. “Schizophrenia”, in this case, can be said to be direct addressing of sub-personalities that did not “get a voice” before. The “depression” can be said to be the grieving (another method of comprehending truth) of the loss of various freedoms, now realized. Again, we could delineate this through more levels, and more specifically, but this is a general scenario with which you can help yourself understand the event more comfortably, if you choose. [Lights_Edge] RetroPsychoKenesis has shown that humans are able to influence the frequency of radioactive decay. Radioactive decay is thought to have pure quantum randomness. Can you explain how humans are able to bias this randomness? Are their thoughts a source of this bias? [Michael_Entity] As we have said before, and here will say again, there is no true “randomness”. Assuming that it is “true” creates a false premise with which to build further speculations and questioning, rendering all responses to the speculations and questions meaningless to a great degree. The instances asked about above could be more accurately examined in light of terminology along the lines of “synchronicity” and “resonance”, rather than “influencing” or “biasing” and “randomness”. We will say that when there is evidence described in your question, this is an example of a fragment in the Positive Pole of the Higher Moving Center. We will end here. Good Night.
  11. January 18, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. This is Michael. One moment. As usual, we will simply start with an Open Floor. You may begin your questions. [Lights_Edge] In Quantum Physics there is the Orthodox Ontology to explain the nature of the world. This Ontology contends there is quantum randomness. It is used to explain why occurrences such as two hydrogen atoms excited at the same having the exact same proxy wave will emit a photon and return to their ground state at differing times. Is this quantum randomness truly random or is a force present effecting the differing outcomes? [Michael_Entity] Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs. There is a predictable “force” that has yet to be capable of being measured, contained, or conceived of by science, yet. From the current perspectives available, there does appear randomness, but a “force” will eventually be recognized. The theories behind what that “force” may be, presently, is limited. The depiction of “randomness” as a theory is simply an exasperated conclusion. [Kathie89] I have a question about Cadence Mates. Who has the closest ties: those in the same row on the same side of love, truth or energy, or those with the same position sharing the 3 different sides? Are there any cadence mates present tonight? [Michael_Entity] The closest ties will be those within the 7, whether you “see” them in rows or columns. The seven fragments comprising a single Cadence within a Greater Cadence. There are variations on the links and the definition of Cadence Members can be extended. For instance, a Cadre of Entities is a group of Cadence Mates, technically. Additionally, the first fragment of each Greater Cadence within a role is linked, as is the second, etc. The first fragment from a Cadence is also linked to the second cast fragment of the second Cadence in the second Greater Cadence, etc. This can be seen as a “diagonal” visual of links. The first fragment of each entity, regardless of Role is linked to the same fragments in the same position within their own Entities. 6 out of 7 times, these are Essence Twins. Though your Energy Ring does not follow the “Classic Model.” As far as Cadence Members being present here tonight, we do not have the focus available through this channel in this forum to look determine this. A little investigation on your part can determine this fairly easily. [Annette] When you gave Troy my profile, you mentioned an intimate connection between us when you were physical. Could you tell me more? Was I ever able to be of service to you and does this connection have an effect on why I am so drawn to this group? [Michael_Entity] We have a particularly profound link to you from over 10,000 years ago. Certain events of an Intellectually profound magnitude still affect an Entity while in the Causal. Though we cannot equate our resonance to some fragments still extant as “emotional,” there are events that we are still processing related to these fragments. In our case with your Essence, which we must differentiate from the Personality known as Annette, several fragments from our Entity learned some of our greatest lessons about “god” through you while we were physical. This greatly affected our pursuit and final cycling off. Since the effect was of a profound Intellectual nature, we are “affected” by this and respond to the resonance. This happens occasionally. We must note that this does not make a fragment more or less meaningful to us; we merely share the reality and nature of interaction as it comes about. [Barb] Good evening, Michael. We have been discussing lately the possibility of an Infinite Soul manifesting very soon (as in this month) in the form of a woman. Would you discuss the probability of this occurring? [Michael_Entity] Speculation of that nature can only be that, “speculation.” When the Infinite Soul manifests, it will be known without question. Considering the Infinite Soul is of the utmost compassionate and intelligent capacity, variations in manifesting can fluctuate at any moment. We can say with some degree of accuracy that the female who would host the Infinite Soul is alive, as is the child, who may manifest first. The probability of the Infinite Soul making itself publicly known within this month or the next six months for that matter is quite low. We say this based on our perception at the moment. We do not believe a manifestation would occur before end of 2001, at this point. [Dewliet] Hi Michael. In a recent session, you referenced a “time” when I had three bodies on this planet simultaneously. I'm wondering “when/where” fragments typically “meet up” with those types of “other selves” to assimilate and process information, and how this process differs from that of information gleaned from parallels. Do we have to “wait” until we reach the Causal plane before we learn what our “other selves” know? [Michael_Entity] When an Essence maintains more than one body within a time frame, they are treated as any incarnation would be treated. They are not the same as Parallel Selves, which exist within different dimensions, or frequencies. These are physical bodies within the same space and time. When one of the Personalities dies, it will process the life as would any other incarnation. Essence has a vast perspective and can either begin another life based on the experiences of that particular Personality's experiences, even while another body is still alive, or “wait” for the various bodies to complete that overlapping time frame before gauging a new life. In terms of Parallels, there not only parallel Earths and Lives, but Parallel Astral Planes and Causal Planes, created from the momentum of Entity choices, collectively. Parallels begin integration after the Causal. [MaryBV] I feel much “better” being in my skin these days. Could you comment on the energy around us at the moment, and have we turned a corner into calmer waters? [Michael_Entity] It would not be amiss to lend validation to the Centering for a Year. Last year was Instinctive Centered, giving rise to a great deal of agitation, fear, automatic reactions, and processing. This year, being Intellectually Centered (Troy's original channeling of Moving Centered is inaccurate) is far more comfortable for most of you. An Intellectually Centered year can lend a great deal of perspective to what has come to pass. If most of you “look” back over the previous year, for most it will “feel” as if it never was, or that it was passed through in a daze. Great changes were made last year that may have appeared to be deeply challenging, but now you will be able to “see” how much you have cleared and the room created in your life can start to move energy in ways that are more comfortable and appealing. We will add to our response to Mary that this was an incomplete answer, but more universally applicable. There are personal changes you have made in perception that have moved you to the Positive Poles of Personality, as well. Though it may not have appeared so during your process, your commitment has been Good Work. [mamajo] when were the great pyramid and the two following it built, if not at the same time in our timeline? I think he is referring to the fact that they might have been built by our future selves back in the past with the aid of extraterrestrial beings. [Michael_Entity] Yes, what you consider your “past” in several instances, was created from your “futures.” In the case of some of the Pyramids, these “were” created as a means for transportation by combined concepts of humans and “aliens” in your future. In “your” timeline, they are now a part of your past, but they are a part of your past because of a timeline that still links those structures to your future. There are several instances in your future where there is the building of practical forms of transportation between planets, the Pyramids being only one instance. Within 200 years of your future, the Pyramids are built into your past, as well as what is called Stonehenge. Much of what cannot be explained in terms of these structures being built is due to tools used from that time frame's future. The building of these structures is not a major global event in its occurrence in the future, by the way, and these structures are only more obvious and mysterious in your “past.” When it “became” relevant to create these structures from your future, the methods and implementation for time travel “were” done discreetly. The initiation of the entire sequence that leads to the building of these structures has already occurred in your current past, during what was called the “harmonic convergence” in the late 80's. In fact, the entire initiation of what has come to be called the “new age” is, in effect, directly linked in time to the initial event [in the future] surrounding the plans for the pyramids and Stonehenge. This is because the ideals and ideas that are eventually used were born of that time frame in the 1980s and are being built upon, especially from those who have concluded these structures could not have been born of what is known of the past. If your timeline parallel continues along a momentum that includes the need for the creation of the Pyramids and Stonehenge, then that timeline would experience a destruction of structures, hence leading to a “time loop” necessity for re-creating them to “try again.” It is hoped that the creation and proper implementation of these structures has secured a timeline that will allow them to simply remain a part of your mysterious history. The Great Pyramid as it sits in your current timeline helps to reduce the possibilities for catastrophic planetary quakes that, in the future, were found to have been a result of micro-cumulations that were found to have been able to be dampened and directed from that area of the planet if it had been caught in “in the past.” The Pyramid has a micro-effect, not only on the motion of the Earth, but on the movement of Time around the Earth. Most global land stability in your timeline in history can be attributed to the effects of the Pyramids that “were” built by going “back” to that most pivotal point in “the past.” Though extraterrestrial assistance is a part of this process, both those humans from “the future” and the species originating off-planet are experienced by the people of the past geographical era and time frame as “gods” and or “aliens.” Stonehenge and Easter Island are other power points upon the planet that benefited from large structures that were built as part of a kind of magnetic stabilizing network. The “charge” of these structures that was more obvious in the past has since worn off to a great extent, but the effects remain and can be measured. The bulk of land mass has been stabilized, but what has “yet” to be accomplished is a stabilizing force that carries over into the 22nd Century. The 21st Century in most parallel timelines with and without the stabilizing structures is still hit quite hard by climate and earth changes, but “so far” only those without the stabilizing structures have been met with near-extinction. Even in those timelines with the stabilizing structures placed in the past, the magnetic network falls short of sustaining through the final few “bumps in the road” manifested in the 21st Century, though they are tremendously minimized. In the timelines without these structures, it is in the beginning of the 23rd Century that the technology is available for affecting timelines. It “was” hoped that in the timelines where the structures helped minimize the catastrophes, the technology would become readily available in time for renovating and bringing “back to life” many of these stabilizing structures to help extend stability through the worst parts of the 21st Century, allowing for exponential growth that was not possible for another century in the timelines recovering from catastrophes. Though alien contact is quite usual for most humans in the late 22nd Century, it is only the simple genius of the Pyramid structures as gateways that allow for the combined forces of on and off-planet species to link from future to past, and to “go back” and help secure a more stable planet and timeline. So far, it could be said by us to be the greatest experiment we have ever studied of any sentient species we know of. We realize the nature of this scenario is fantastical, but there is more involved with your universe than is presently considered, except by some older souls. [Paulyboy] I have a question regarding video and role-playing games. These are two mediums which I enjoy ‘playing’ in. Are these simply things that we can “lose” ourselves in as opposed to doing our “life,” or could it be the life, etcetera? So I think the question is, is it something to “lose yourself in,” or are these mediums, and all the jazz about them, limited to a case by case appraisal? Personally, I have questions about this. [Michael_Entity] As with every other physical manifestation on your planet, these games are portions of the psyche, soul, and mind manifest. It is said that the brain's use is only approximately 10%, but this is not so. You merely need 10% for the use of perception and interpretation; 90% or so is used to generate reality. For instance, your physical means of communication is Telepathy manifest. Your film industry is dreaming, manifest. Video “role playing” has existed for as long as the human has existed. It is a means of grappling with the variations of the core Personality, giving rise to the sub-personalities with permission. Therefore, role-playing is Sub-personalities, manifest. Regardless of the depth or brevity of the “game,” its purpose remains the same. [Hector07] Is there ordinality and cardinality present as to cadre within an energy ring? If this is so, would it have four cardinal points, as in 1, 4, 7 and 10? [Michael_Entity] Cardinality and Ordinality no longer apply on that level, only Positions within the Support Group. [Barry] Earlier tonight, you said, “Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs.” My question is: there has been much debate throughout history on whether our fate is predetermined or if we have free will. It sounds like you are saying that the functioning or “fate” of the universe is predetermined. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that, nor did we imply it. We merely say there is an awesome order to events that, at this point, escape the perceptions of scientist and their tools. We do not imply predictability, either; simply that the theory of “randomness” is not accurate. On the level of the reality being explored, “Quantum Reality,” you are literally attempting to grasp the dynamics of the Higher Moving Center or the Buddhaic Plane. Of course, it is only a minute manifestation of it, but it is part of that fabric, nonetheless. In the grasping of the Higher Moving Center, you will fall into the Positive Pole of Beauty or the Negative Pole of Chaos. We do not imply that Chaos is incorrect, but that it is the relinquishing of recognition of patterns. Recognizing patterns, whether within the life or the level of Quantum Physics, is Beauty, or Oneness. Relegating an event to the theory of Randomness is lack of recognition of those patterns. The pursuit toward recognizing those patterns is part of all sentients’ eventual growth. Certain fragments, entities, and cadres will pursue this for the species. We will state here that because a pattern can be observed, either in probabilities or retrospect, does not remove the concept of “free will.” Consider your weather: It cannot be predicted, but you have entire television networks and time slots devoted to it and counted on. The patterns have been recognized and can be perceived. Knowing whether it will be stormy tomorrow or sunny does not remove your ability to choose, nor can the knowledge of the probabilities for weather be entire relied upon. [nemo999] What are the rules for giving us information? I don't believe we can just ask you for a cure for aids. Also, the scientific information seems to be limited to the knowledge of the channel and most people are not science types to ask about quantum physics or quantum gravity, basically some things we need to learn for ourselves not depend on channeling. [Michael_Entity] All channeling will be limited to some degree by the channel's level of education, insight, and soul age, but this can be transcended in many cases, depending on the self-esteem and beliefs of that particular fragment. The channel you know as Troy has little education in regard to history and geography, but prefers this, as this allows him a sense of validation when information transcends his own knowledge. This is one of the ma………………… [SECTION OF TRANSCRIPT LOST] He recognizes the limitations, while openly invites the transcendence. We do not limit our responses to you. We are only limited to your questions. If information is not available for a particular subject, which can be the case, we respond accordingly. We do not speculate, except in terms of probabilities. [nemo999] Would it be possible to channel a cure for aids for example? [Michael_Entity] This disease would have to exist first. What most seek in terms of a “cure,” by the way, is a removal of the lesson, which we are incapable of doing. What is sought as a “cure” in many cases is removal of pain, as well, which is not the cure. What we would suggest as a cure for something would not be orthodox or traditional, but an implementation of perception of self and other to a degree that extinguishes Chief Feature. Additionally, there is no “cure-all.” There will be foundations that can be shared as a basis in approaching an illness, but the individual would determine what the actual “cure” is. We will comment again that the fragment known as Louise Hayes has done Good Work in the progress toward “cures,” but has limited her presentation and practical implementation to a commercially acceptable scale. More work on that Task will continue through others and into other lives. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  12. March 9, 2008 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. [Question] There are some chemicals that seem central to our culture at this time. Testosterone is one, Caffeine another. A new one I just learned about is Oxytocin. Could you comment on these substances? Maybe there are other ones just as important, or more so. That is my question. [Michael Entity] The three chemicals you have listed are natural to your world and culture, even as there may be some synthetic versions of each, or innovative media for each. For the most part, every culture within a time frame has as part of its emphasis an attention toward some stimulants. In terms of the list you’ve offered up, each has its different effect. We will comment on each listed above as they are used outside of a natural supply, when actively sought as a supplement or for effect. Testosterone is sought in your culture now as a means to bring about a balance (or imbalance) to the ratio between “male” and “female” energies. Your world now has more higher-male energy female bodies and more higher-female energy male bodies than it has seen in a long time. Testosterone is called upon to soothe that panic during this natural shift. Rather than implementing a deeper understanding of the female energies as they show up through a male body, it is sought to stimulate out of the body as much of the male energy as possible. This use is “fine,” but the implementation of Testosterone as a substitute for understanding can only last for so long. Eventually the panic fades and a more natural expression is allowed. Caffeine is called upon as a stimulant as it relates to an individual’s Frequency. Many are drawn to Caffeine as it keeps the individual Frequency at the higher end of the range one has within his capabilities. A Higher Frequency fits into Young Soul paradigm of “fast, fast, fast!” in terms of productivity, processing, and use of energy. As the Mature Soul consciousness takes more rooting, less Caffeine will be consumed as each individual finds his own pace and uses that to his advantage, rather than forcing oneself to the exhausting higher end of your Frequency. We remind you that we are responding to your question within the context of its use within the culture, but there are various individual reasons, as well. Oxytocin is a stimulant that triggers access to the Higher Centers, particularly the Higher Moving Center. When naturally occurring, it is activated in relation to a fragment’s conscious ability to process that access, but in its synthetic uses, the access is still made, but conscious processes are out of sync. The use of this chemical is relative to the panic over Soul Age Transition within your culture from Young To Mature. We do not see this as being used as a “central to your culture,” but it is a possibility that it gain more momentum if a shift in consciousness is not rooted more tangibly within the next 10 years. The use of this chemical is to help induce access to the transition process in a tangible way, because many assume that evidence must be externally-shown that one is present and accessible. Many fragments are present in your world who appear to be withdrawn and out of sync with an expressive, social culture, but these fragments are not lacking. They are merely interacting in a different way. Imprinting and social pressures can cause one to either push a withdrawn fragment into a chemically-induced accessibility, or push the self into that state. [Question] I don´t see the difference there… The self? [Michael Entity] In general, people may feel pressured to push a withdrawn fragment into this state, or one might feel that pressure on oneself and choose it for oneself. We would suggest that there are many who are incarnated at this time who are in a lifetime that could be akin to an “in-breath” over the scheme of things. As with all preoccupations with a stimulant, the evolving understanding of the motivation behind its use brings far more effect than the actual use of the chemical. In addition to the list above, we would add Nicotine, which is a stimulant that affects the Mode. This chemical has been in place over a long, Young Soul paradigm because of the nature of that soul age to leave intimacy out of the picture as one goes for what one wants from life. Smoke in the lungs can act as a substitute for intimacy as this soothes the Emotional Center, and Nicotine stimulates superficial socializing as a means to keep the Mode in effect. The Mode is the part of ones personality that describes how one RELATES. Though we focused more directly on some of the specifics of each of these chemicals, it could be said that ALL chemicals within a culture that tend to be used as a stimulate are relative to the Mode. In nearly all cases of use in stimulants, each has to do with a forced form of relating. [Question] How to validate one’s entity, if one has never met a person who has been channelled as a member of that entity? [Michael Entity] Channeled information is not required for one to validate contact with an entity member, but it can help one in the process. In the case you describe, we would suggest exploring the themes and qualities and “trademarks” of your Entity and then apply that filter to your life to see who might resonate to those factors. That would be a first step. A next step might be then to “invite” entity members into your life who are more obvious and accessible. This could be done using the dream state, consciously inviting your incarnated members into your life as you fall asleep. Contact may be made in this dream state as a means to make plans for contact in physical life. Channeling can then be used beyond this for details and rounding out validation. You have met several from your Entity within your lifetime, from a childhood “friend” who used to kick your shins or feet on a playground, to a cashier at a frequented market who “went out of her way” to be helpful, to a fellow passenger on a public transportation route of some length, to a man who was a “stranger” who appears to have photographed you at your request, etc. Though we will not list all of them here, we can offer those suggestions for references in your memory as a means to start your validation process. If none of these sound familiar, it may be because these instances are too vague or that we are accessing the records incorrectly altogether. We suggest you explore them, but you will know more precisely if they are accurate or not. In addition to these, there are many public figures from your Entity, as well as many Michael Students with whom you have contact on a regular basis. [Question] Currently I have an issue with a woman in my home owner’s association, Mrs. W. I’m the president of our HOA, and the minute she told us, via email, that she sent me a certified letter making demands, my reaction to it was to get very angry about it. I couldn’t contain my anger towards her when she arrived at our meeting and I yelled at her. This surprised me… that I got so angry because I rarely get angry with people. I have been looking at this issue of what caused me to get so angry with her and what am I missing about her to allow me to stop feeling my hackles raise when I see or even think about her. I know the anger I’m feeling is not really about her. Please can you shed some light on this… along with telling me how I might handle her with more positive results? [Michael Entity] On a self-karmic level, this relates to several issues: issues of Control as it extends from Stubbornness (you prefer discretion over obnoxious call-outs); issues of inadequacy as described by your Self-deprecation (it hurts to be told you fall short of expectations). In the case you describe, this triggered every defense you could muster to protect yourself from losing control and feeling inadequate. Your anger was a form of your trying to re-implement some control and to compensate for the sense of inadequacy. It is Good Work that you recognize that this incident is unrelated to the woman, herself, even as she provoked these reactions in you. This is consciousness, Essence. [Comment] Wow… that makes total sense to me. [Michael Entity] You claim that you “rarely get angry with people,” but this is untrue. Or more specifically, this is an inaccurate statement. It is simply that your anger more often is turned inward rather than outward. You are exploring the other side of anger in this incident as a means to bring some wholeness further into your life. That is the main self-karmic issue: your RIGHT to be angry. Your RIGHT to feel hurt. And ultimately, your RIGHT to express. Vocalizing your Anger frees your Intellectual Center or your Throat Chakra to “unclog” years of suppression. [Question] This is healthier for my body to express it outwardly? [Michael Entity] It came out more strongly as a result of past suppression. We would not say that it is healthier for your body to express it outwardly as much as we would say that it is healthier for ALL of your bodies to OWN your anger and to express it appropriately. This would include the internal expressions as much as the external. In other words, you have created a dichotomy within you that has left you with arguments against and for your anger over time. Whether this anger was kept inside, directed toward the self, or externalized. Your next steps are to consciously grasp that your anger is a means of uncovering areas of powerlessness within the life and then to bring consciousness to that area, re-empowering that area. In your case, the powerlessness could be said to be rooted in your Goal of Acceptance. As you explore this Goal, much of what is acceptable about yourself or others seems to be out of your hands in many ways. Over time you have found this to simply be untrue. So it is that you are now more likely to express your anger because you are not threatened by the loss of acceptance, of yourself, or from others. Now that you have seen the disproportionate effects of anger as it is expressed after being suppressed, you may find that you are more appropriate as you experience it in the future. Though this was a rather personal question, we do see our response as being applicable to many. If you wish to stretch yourself a bit more, it would be an interesting “short cut” toward balance if this incident were addressed with the woman in question, not offering apologies, but in offering appreciation and acknowledgment for the benefit gained from your exploring your part of the equation. You may not be able to control how people ask for what they want, but you can learn to see these calls for action to simply be variations of how one has learned to get things done, not as personal attacks. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Good night.
  13. June 3, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We find it is important to emphasize that certain terms that have become standard in what is referred to as our Teaching have not been fully explored in their varying contexts. The Higher Moving Center, in and of itself, can be labeled many things in terms of its positive and negative poles. When speaking of the Higher Moving Center in terms of a fluctuation of Energy on any given planet, it must be referred to in terms of “+beauty” “-chaos”. Beauty is the conscious recognition of patterns while Chaos is simply the relinquishing of that recognition. This past week and weekend have proven that most prefer the default of Chaos over Beauty. (We will add here that most of our system actually resides within three layers. There are three layers of Overleaf observations, for instance, which accounts for the varying “discrepancies”. They are not discrepancies, but focuses on different layers/levels. We will address this at a time more conducive to understanding.) At this time, it is suggested by Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] that questions be responded to. We realize our time is precluded tonight, but we will respond, nonetheless. Begin Questions. [bn] Michael said that most people choose the default of chaos. Can we have an example of the choice someone had and how they chose? [Michael_Entity] Chaos is easier to manage. Over eons of time, Crisis can be managed much more effectively than life, itself. Therefore, it becomes the “default” for many. We have no specific examples, but we suspect some of you can come up with a few from your week past. Beauty, on the other hand, which is essentially the conscious recognition of pattern and the assimilation of place in that pattern, is much more challenging. Either perspective is a valid route through a lifetime. [bn] By “Beauty is the recognition of patterns”, does Michael mean patterns in how events occur around us synchronistically? [Michael_Entity] We would agree, yes, this would be one meaning. [bn] The idea that there is no haphazard reason for the coincidences in our lives? [Michael_Entity] “Haphazard” is from the vocabulary of fear. This term is selectively used to refer to those things with which recognition of beauty has not occurred. “Synchronistic” and “miraculous” are different names for the same phenomenon: selective perceptions of Beauty. Everything is synchronistic and miraculous in reality. These labeled events only stand out because they resonate so strongly with what Personality intended or observed as beneficial. Many things dismissed as “bad luck” or “obstacles” or “haphazard” are as useful, simply not always consciously “intended”. While in the lifetime, Personality can free up reservoirs of energy from it’s environment and increase conscious interaction with Essence by seeing the patterns (beauty) in all events, (however unsatisfactory). When your terms for recognizing beauty shifts to include even those things not consciously intended, you may find your world easier to manage. Fulfillment extends from trusting your progress. Trusting (another term for recognizing beauty) allows you to change directions in life easily when determined, rather than fight your own Essence’s creativity. We are extending past the territory of the Higher Moving Center flux and into more abstract areas. We can discuss this, but in terms of this past week’s energy “weather”, we have answered. next then [M6] When Michael entered here I felt a rush of energy, felt by others (backchannel) as well. This continues. Was this Michael, our own guides, or what? [Michael_Entity] The experience most of you feel in these chats with us, either though Otterly [Troy Tolley] or our other channels, is simply the alignment with your own Essences. This is the one way you can sincerely “hear” us, otherwise you are using your Modes in the negative pole. This connection to Essence may or may not be accompanied by sensations, but we rarely see any of you refraining from this opening to non-physical contact during our contact with you. We are familiar. The “rush” is that connection which is available at all times, of course. By opening in this way, you actually “touch” us, bringing our energy into your own as a teaching unto itself, not simply an observation or mode of phenomenon. We are saying much more than can be typed through this channel during a chat so we seek to answer or respond to your own private concerns without the limitation of this channel’s ability to type. Therefore, some of you “feel” us more specifically. next then. [Fe] Do the events in my life over the past week relate to the state of the Higher Moving center and the topic of Chaos? May I view this situation as catalytic for change? [Michael_Entity] You may view your experiences in any way you choose, however, yes, you gained clarity from the negative pole of the Higher Moving Center since it is more recognizable. As with most of you, you will begin to move into the more positive pole as this next week progresses. This will be a week of what some refer to as “ah-ha’s!” When dealing with the Higher Moving Centers, it is difficult to find any actual “negative” effects, regardless of the poles. What you have deemed your “chaos” can later be recognized as your ‘beauty”. We see that you know what you must do. This fluctuation of energy (catalysis) also helps you refine your sense of self-trust. We suggest, if you choose, to act upon that. next. [Jn] Is “going with the flow” being on the neutral from +beauty and -chaos of the Higher Moving energy? I am wondering if it is possible to adopt a neutral or balanced stance. [Michael_Entity] “Balanced” or “Neutral” is always relative to the fragment experiencing the given circumstance. While one fragment in the NEGATIVE pole of an Overleaf may find complete imbalance, another may find a sense of “home”. We find that MOST prefer the Positive Poles, but it is not necessary to BE in the positive poles to experience balance or neutrality. For instance, Charles Manson and Ted Bundy are at peace with their stances. If you prefer Chaos as your method of change and connection, that is your choice. If you prefer Beauty, it is equally valid. The Tao has no enforced maps. next. [bn] I feel that lately my life has become very confusing with many important decisions looming. Would this be due to the increased energy in the Higher Moving Center? I think I am also beginning to work on my 4th Internal Monad. I sense that I am entering a period of re-evaluation of my life. Is this 4th IM stuff? I feel like I want to change so much and let go of so much and yet still I wish to “play it safe” and change nothing. [Michael_Entity] It is accurate that you see yourself in the Monad. You are not entering the Monad, however, but moving from the 4th Level to the 5th Level. You will enter the 5th Level in reality later this year, but for now, it is this fourth level that holds your attention. You are “pushed”, so to speak, as the Higher Moving Center levels your playing field and opens opportunities for you to manifest from your being, your Essence. Your wanting to “change so much stuff” is a result of your Essence having already “changed it”. Personality need only make decisions now. You will begin to see the results of this over the year ahead. You have been amiss in thinking the attention you have given to what it is you wanted to change requires more than simple decisions. There is no need for elaboration in planning. A decision will set your Sequences into action. Your sense that these changes are “impending” is your cue that these changes have already been made on an Essence level; they are yours. Part of you has sought them out and here is your opportunity to allow them, or reject them. Claim them or turn them away as you decide. next. [A2] My own experiences have been very physical in the past weeks. Besides the “ah-has” of next week, what are the next steps? I guess I am asking for further weather report if that is possible. [Michael_Entity] In the weeks ahead, particularly the next two, you will see what EXACTLY holds you from resting into your chosen environments. You get to see some things in light of what “has to be changed” in order to proceed. We will note here that most of our students are on a fast-paced movement of experiences in regard to their Goals. The next two weeks will allow a removal of some past life/early life beliefs that have been carried, blocking you, and thus allowing a freer form of expression in your environment. It will be your choice to act upon the opportunities, but we see most of you in this room attracting the opportunity to extend yourselves past what you previously expected of yourselves. By this we mean, as your ROLES. To elaborate: regardless of your Personality Dynamics, your Roles are able to “shine”. It is a rare opportunity, and it is an even rarer collective event, but most of what you recognize as familiar about yourselves will be set aside for more “essential” expression after the next couple of weeks. This year is specifically geared toward that. We will share more about this as the next month unfolds. It is at that time that a Community Shift in parallels will occur and at that time more will fall into place. Final questions? [M6] A Community shift in parallels? Explain? [Michael_Entity] There are three levels of Parallel Shifts/Nexus: Individual (happening throughout the year at any time deemed appropriate by the Essence), Community Shifts (a group of shared consciousness steers themselves into a reality of shared interests); and Global, (a collective Sentience of a given planet moves into various parallels for various explorations of reality as a whole). At this point, July 17th looks to be a window for many Community divergences and convergences. We will conclude here, then.
  14. May 20, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Soul Age and Centers [Michael_Entity] We are here… one moment. We spoke last session about those following two weeks being an opportunity for most of you Older Souls to get a sense of your True Soul ages. This did not mean it would remain nor that you were to maintain this event; that would be your choice. What we would suggest however is to examine the past couple of weeks, looking for the symptoms we described in the last session, using this as a gauge or compass, a centering, for returning to your own True Soul Age when required or chosen. It is not the goal, by the way, to retain, or maintain your Soul Age perspective, but rather to be able to draw from all Soul Age perspectives you have encountered up to this point. It is limiting yourself and your life when struggling to sustain one perspective. This aspect of Soul Age has been highly misunderstood by many of our students. This misunderstanding does not, however, negate your choice to have this as a challenge to maintain. The average Soul Ages of those involved with us, especially in this room, do not have a circle of Older Souls with which to seriously maintain their True Soul Age, therefore it is valid to “manifest” at Soul Ages other than your “technical” Soul Age. What becomes the task is in the ability to shift to your own True Soul Age when the occasion arises. When the opportunity arises for Older Souls to manifest their Soul Ages, we rarely see this opportunity accepted, or utilized. What we see, instead, could be referred to “affectionately” as “codginess”. Older Souls in the vicinity of other Older Souls, whether in Internet world or physically, tend to be suspicious. This stems from a very personal and definitive journey of which each of you as Essence and Personality have become the culmination. As your Soul Age progresses you realize the nature of trust in yourself, trust in your Source. In that complete trust (usually gained after a very trying Mature Soul cycle/level) you become “suspicious” of other Older Souls and their perspectives, since they tend to have minor details abrasive with your own discoveries. When we say “suspicious” we do not mean this literally, though sometimes it can certainly show up literally. A more accurate picture is the image of several “old geezers” sitting on the porch, bickering about the “old days”. This is a contemporary image and one that is relevant at this point. We are not trying to be humorous. It is in this critiquing and heightened scrutiny of the other Older Souls, that you might learn is a clue for your realization that you have stumbled into your own True Soul Age perspective opportunity. Once you have gained this conscious “photograph” of the moment, you may then choose either pole of your Soul Age. For the Old Souls this would be: positive pole=INCLUSIVE, negative pole EXCLUSIVE. For the Mature Souls this would be the positive pole of PERCEPTION, the negative pole of PROJECTION. You may use these poles to determine whether you have distanced yourself from an opportunity for Essence Contact and Recognition, or if you have taken steps to truly SEE or INCLUDE “other”. We speak of this for a reason. We do not randomly discuss events or topics, unless directed to do so through questioning. Upon review of your last couple of weeks, you will realize that enabling your Soul Age perspective to manifest, when it normally is reserved or monitored, tends to free up a tremendous amount of energy normally expended on time and space. In this freeing up of energy the body can experience this as a “high”, ending with a “crash”. This period of time discussed is not the only time this happens in your lives, but this month seems to be geared collectively toward generating a conscious opportunity to choose your perspectives more freely without guilt or fear. In the weeks ahead, another burst of energy will be released, but not from within, as in the past two weeks. In the weeks past, each of you freed up energy through your decision to see the world through your “own eyes”. This can be unsettling or confusing to the Personality, while simultaneously ecstatic to the soul. For those we speak to, this happened “from within”. This means the world “outside” may or may not have appeared to “keep up” with you. In that experience, you can see why you choose to remain more monitored and discreet in your perspectives. The energy and average Soul Age Perspective of the planet does not necessarily accommodate your levels of potential experience, at least at this point. In the weeks ahead, this surge of energy will be more global and external. You will see a surge from the planet stimulating the Higher Moving Center in events and people. This is a specific burst, different from what you experienced in the past weeks. In the past weeks, this freeing of energy was primarily affecting the lower centers, but affecting them all in some way, lending balance. This was still a result of your Higher Moving Energy, but from within, and funneled specifically. In the next couple of weeks your Higher Moving Center is stimulated specifically, but from external sources. The rest of the world will have an experience of this as well, if they choose. This means: what you experienced over the beginning of this month is now having a potential opportunity synchronize with external world events. This means as Older Souls you may feel detached and free from what seems to be happening, rather than affected. It is your opportunity to not only experience the freedom within (as you choose your True Perspectives at will) but to experience that sharing with other Older Souls without conflict. This Higher Moving Centered flux will most likely be a turning point for certain world events, and you, as Personalities and Essences, can observe in delight. We are open to questions about the “weather forecast” at this point, then we’ll move into an open floor forum. [bn] How do you see the increase in energy in the Higher Moving Center as affecting the Kosovo conflict? [Michael_Entity] This will most likely be a decompression of the situation or a major acceleration to a larger circle of conflict. At this point, it is fairly equal in percentages for probability. [K1] How does being in 4th Internal Monad affect the perception of soul age at this time? [Michael_Entity] The Fourth Internal Monad is another context entirely for determining Soul Age manifestation. When progressing through your Soul Ages and returning to your True Soul Age Perspective within the life, perception is challenged or evolved at the Internal Monad markers. The Soul Age in the context of the Body/Essence alignment is measured by these rites of passage. What we are referring to, in terms of your opportunity to manifest your Soul Age perspective, is an approach from a different angle, a different context. One is measured by the progression of the body through the physical life, while the other is measured by the psyche’s evolution within the life. This is why a toddler can appear to be an “old soul” even though this fragment has obviously not progressed through the Fourth Internal Monad. Soul Age manifestation has not been fully explored through our channels and what has become a standard reference is but one facet, the Personality’s experience. This is relative to Life Tasks and physicality. Tonight, we speak of the psyche’s experience. We are finished with our response, unless this did not clarify. [Jn] Any suggestion for those of us who are in Intellectual/emotional part or Emotional/intellectual part on how to access and utilize the Higher Moving Center energy? [Michael_Entity] You will not need to “access” it in those terms. Instead, it will more accurately “access” you. When this occurs, it is a question of how you choose to funnel this energy through the body and life. Higher Moving Centered energy is pervasive. In the case you described, it is in the PART, the secondary centering that the successful or challenged movement of this energy will be seen. Regardless of your Centering, the PARTS hold the controls here. Intellectual PARTS will respond negatively with “reasons” to deny impulses, and positively with insight as to what choices can be made in this “rush”. Emotional PARTS will respond with potential depression or anxiety, while in the positive, respond with joy, unadulterated and guilt-free joy. Moving PARTS will respond negatively with agitation, hyperactivity, frenetic bursts, and sexual frustration, or positively with a sensual and graceful recognition of the body in relation to the environment. The response to this question is highly simplified, but should act as an accurate parameter to begin. next [he] Does this energy have anything to do with the sunspot activities? [Michael_Entity] Contrarily, sunspot activity is another result of Higher Moving Energy surges. The Higher Moving Centers are rarely accessed from what might be termed an external activation or attempt. Instead, it MOVES through everything, and depending on many factors, what is MOVED through, moves too. The Higher Moving Center is Oneness, ultimately. It is the difference between standing in a stream of rushing water, struggling for balance, or flowing. next [bn] Michael said, “…sunspot activity is another result of Higher Moving Energy surges.” Does this mean that since the sunspot activity is cyclical in nature (11-year sun spot cycle), then so is the Higher Moving energy surges including the other Higher centers? [Michael_Entity] We will clarify by asking if you are wondering if there are other indicators of other Higher Center surges manifested similarly. Is this correct, Bn? [bn] I was wondering if surges in energy in each Higher center is cyclical and have indicators (like the increased sunspot activity) [Michael_Entity] In that case, no, not so clearly… we will elaborate: Sunspot activity is a result of Higher Center surges, but the cycles of that surging, as currently understood, is relative to the Sun, itself. The Sunspot activity that affects your own planet in discernible ways, is more a result of your own Higher Moving Center fluxes, relative to your own planet. In other words, at times when these sunspots and solar flares (we include this as well) affect your planet, it is most likely relative to a Higher Moving Center surge being experienced on Earth. [bn] Are there physical or visible indicators of surges in the other Higher Centers? [Michael_Entity] Other indications of these surges in the Higher Moving Center are sexuality issues, transcendence of physical connections and contacts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions. The Higher Emotional Center brings more upsurges in floods and rain, new star and planet discoveries, and astronomical events are highlighted. Higher Intellectual surges bring more spiritual revolutions, tornadoes, and droughts. Again, we realize this is a limited forum and are responding in a fashion that is limited as well. This question’s response is grand in scope. We will address it when asked again, in a more appropriate format. Next question, if any? [Le] Will this Higher Moving Energy surge be felt on this planet only or on other planets as well? [Michael_Entity] The universe you presently recognize as your own will experience this collectively. It is through the individual and collective consciousness of a planet and its inhabitants that it becomes relative. For instance, we doubt the planet you call PLUTO will be responding. The more sentience sharing a planet, the more likely the meaningful response. next [Jn] Are there similar surges or cycles for Higher Intellectual or Higher Emotional in the past? Are they more prominent in sapiens only, or the whole planet in general? [Michael_Entity] There are Cycles which we will have to delve into at another point, but here we will say that it is not a simple circular event. Instead, what you experience, and what we refer to, is the meeting points of several cycles. For example, the Higher Moving Center surge in the next couple of weeks, particularly around the last weekend, is the “overlapping” of a larger Moving Centered Cycle and Intellectual Cycle and Higher Emotional. We will share how this manifests or can be calculated at a different session, if it is of interest. It is predictable to a large extent. As for whether it is more prominent in sapiens: the answer is no. It is completely subjective. Your own Frequencies help determine what part of the spectrum of Higher Moving energy you tap into, from positive pole to negative. We will discuss this next month. Next. [bn] Since we are not subjected to many of the barriers of false personality while we are asleep, will the increase in Higher Moving Centered energy cause our dreams to be affected more than ordinary? [Michael_Entity] It is not necessarily true that you are not subjected to “the barriers of false personality” while sleeping. It is a common event to remain entirely within your waking contexts, even when astrally focused or out of body. The CONTENTS you use as symbols change, not necessarily the CONTEXT of the perceptions. Nevertheless, yes, your dreams become potentially more important. We say, “important” as this is usually a time of prosperity-creation and setting sequences into motion, seeking Agreements, etc. The next couple of weeks should prove interesting in terms of strikingly meaningful symbolism and dream events directly relevant to waking state. In fact, it is the task of a few of you here to have some turning points purely generated while asleep this week. June will bring the manifestation of these events (Agreements, etc.) into waking state, if chosen. We will close here, taking the last question now. [a5] My Grandmother has Alzheimers…Is she content? Where is Essence and Personality when a person has this condition? [Michael_Entity] The Essence has disengaged from the body at this point, though still care taking. Alzheimer’s is the choice of individuals who choose to re-experience the first seven years of life as the first seven years of life may have not been assimilated properly. Essence does not “move in” to the Body fully for several years after birth, usually after 7 years, in general. Those with Alzheimer’s have freed the body from any time references, and most space references, similar to a child. This is usually chosen in fragments who were “forced into” their bodies at an early age, before what would have normally been chosen. [a5] Disengaged? Clarify? [Michael_Entity] When we say “disengaged”, we mean the life is already in review. This does not, however, mean that it is “done”. [a5] Since she is older (85) this makes a lot of sense. She seems happy. [Michael_Entity] Whether this “illness” is seen as traumatic for those surrounding the fragment is not the concern of Essence who chooses this. In most cases, the event is ecstatic and playful. Those who choose this are experiencing some of their first validations of afterlife without stereotypes and imprinting as a gateway. We will close here… Good night to you all
  15. Energy Report: MAY 2015

    ENERGY REPORT May 2015 2015 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Scholar (emphasized all year) CENTER: H. Moving (default to Moving) (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Stoic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Stubbornness/Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY brings a full shift of emphasis to the Mode of Caution. (see previous report for elaboration). As this emphasis comes into sharper focus, the split between those who aim for Deliberation and those who remain in Phobia will likely be even clearer and more distinct. Those who aim for Deliberation will continue to aim for inclusion of their concerns and fears, while also being careful and direct in their relating to self, others, and the world. Those who are finding they are more and more entrenched in Phobia will likely grow more and more tunnel-visioned and make rash decisions with reactions that feed the phobia. MAY looks to be quite the dividing ground between those in Phobia and those in Deliberation. Many who are in Deliberation may find the exhausting weight of having to either deal with those in Phobia, or having to help those in Phobia to see beyond their fears. It will be fairly difficult for those in Deliberation to choose not to want to help, but it is important to remember that you can only help IF YOU CAN HELP. If you cannot, it is okay. Sometimes it is simply more important to allow the growth to happen at its own pace, even if this means letting a part of yourself work through its own Phobia. As the year progresses, so do the emphasis and spikes into the Higher Moving Center, and this can make for some bursts of sudden, strange, devastating, and life-altering weather and geological events. Higher Moving Centered years can often bring great shifts in earth and weather in ways that play into the move toward unity and harmony. It is not that unity and harmony are only feasible in disasters, but that disasters are often, naturally, conducive to the necessity for working together. DATES OF INTEREST: May 04 - 06 -- ENERGY SHIFT - ENERGY DRAIN/GROUNDING - It looks to us like a collective wave of exhaustion is passing through many of our students in ways that can feel draining. The actual point of this is out of necessity for many to ground themselves, to take a walk, to sit down on earth, to lean on a tree, to eat a salad, to just rest. Anything that is an acknowledgement of one’s part and place on Earth. This year is beginning to take its toll on our students (and non-students) in ways that are making it feel as if this world is not your own, and that you are either squatters or somehow completely out of place. This is Maya coming up for you as older souls. This is a false illusion. When you look around at the world and its events and they do not reflect you, this is not an indication that you do not belong. It is an indication that the events do not reflect you. It is an invitation for you to go create your own, to look at what does reflect you, or to reach out and help in ways that matter to you. But if you dismiss your connection to this world, you lose your vitality. May 07 - 10 -- ENERGY SHIFT - VITALITY - Depending on how the previous Energy Shift was managed, one may suddenly or slowly feel a return of energy around the 7th. But in that energy shift, it may come as a “blast” of energy that can be volatile and unstable, so grounding is still important. To help you to move this wave of productive/Moving energy through you in a healthy way, take that walk you dismissed, sit on the earth, lean on a tree, watch birds, pet an animal for an extended period of time, take a bath, be in the Sunlight, anything that gets you moving and/or connected to the Earth. This can help the energy shift to move more gently and carefully through you so that your vitality is not returned with explosive bursts, but as pleasurable motivation. NO NEXUS IN MAY HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MAY: DECOMPRESSION IS NOT DEPRESSION - We have mentioned this before, and it is important that we mention it again for this month. It can feel as if you are depressed and down when a wave of exhaustion invites you toward grounding, especially if the grounding is not fulfilled. So it is important to differentiate between the need for downtime, the allowing of digestion of meaningful events, or the release of useless worries, and actual depression. Decompression is healthy and natural and comes in cycles that help you to recover focus. YOUR WORLD IS OUR WORLD - What you see in the world is not always you, for you, about you, or relevant to you, even though you are intrinsically a part of it because of the very nature of the dynamic of sharing a world. But your world is OUR world, not just yours. When you look at the world and presume it should only serve your well-being, your path, your struggles, your preferences, your pace, then you contribute to the cacophony in the collective consciousness of the world. It is one thing to reach out and help make a difference when you know the world can be a better place for you and others, and quite a different thing when you simply hide from it, complain about it, dismiss it, or resign to overwhelm. It is OUR world. Not just yours. So it will reflect the multitude of people, not just you.
  16. ENERGY REPORT January 2015 2015 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Scholar (emphasized all year) CENTER: H. Moving (default to Moving) (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Stoic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Stubbornness/Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) JANUARY of 2015 comes in a bit quietly and subtly as the build into a Higher-Centered year begins. This subtlety and quietude is helped by the shift into Scholar and Submission for the year, as well. This will likely not last long as the year appears to be themed in Moving and Higher Moving patterns that can make for either a stream-lined and surprisingly fruitful year of change toward long-awaited states of harmony and beauty, or can fall into long-feared states of desperate frustrations and utter chaos. Regardless of which direction the collective consciousness moves over this year, it will likely be a profoundly-pivotal year on a global and personal scale. As the positive state of the Higher Moving Center comes up and out of the default patterns of the Moving Center, it comes like a gathering storm, or in the similar way that sexual and affectionate intimacy rises out of time, interaction, and familiarity. We speak of sexual and affectionate intimacy, a state of moving in unison and inclusion, not sexual urges for stimulation and release. The sexual and affectionate intimacy is a state that is whole and inclusive, while the sexual urges for stimulation and release are simply extensions of masturbation and the use of external props, and while this is not a “bad thing,” it is “negative” in the sense of its exclusion. We include the comparison of the gathering storm here, too, because there is a culmination of various factors that come about from multiple directions that converge to bring about a “storm,” or a powerful force that can be cleansing, destructive, healing, scary, exciting, beautiful, etc. The effects of the Higher Moving Center are similar to how storms function in that that storms are never just one thing, no matter how devastating the storm may seem, and no matter how beautiful and exciting the storm may seem. A storm, like affection and intimacy, includes the “good and the bad” of its effects and states. So as 2015 unfolds, there may come to be a sense of a storm gathering, and a sense of awe and beauty, that is both complex and far-reaching in its existence. If the year falls primarily into the lower Moving Center, the year will unfold as a series of typical activities that represent how one is dealing with frustrations, including symbolic (and literal) masturbation in politics, relationships, and personal goals that simply act as stimulation for distraction from the more pressing issues. We will check in on the state of the Higher Moving vs Moving Centered states as the year unfolds. For now, the build toward the Higher Moving is still in place. In a Moving/Higher Moving Centered year, look for weather, geographical, and environmental events to tend to dominate the provocation for change. This includes ones immediate environments, such as the home, the body, and the most intimate of relationships. As January opens up, the move into Submission as the collective Goal will likely become more obvious as it gains footing. Submission is adding to the moving elements of the year as it is an Action Goal. Submission is the process of determining where your energy is best directed and RECEIVED. It is a process of exploring where one is most-needed and most-effective. When Submission is in the Positive Pole, it is Devotion. It is an active contribution toward something that is receiving the benefit of that contribution. When Submission is in the Negative Pole, it is an active imposition one’s values in a direction that does not actually benefit from that imposition but is only to serve your own benefits, or it is exploitation of your values in a way that actually serves no one. This is Subservience. Subservience is not just about the one with the Goal being exploited, but can be about how the one with that goal extracts false benefit from others, as well. The key here is in the RECEIVING and the GIVING. If the action is not actually being received, it is being imposed. If the action is being taken through obligation, it is never truly given. No circuit has been made. What many of our students will be looking at as January unfolds is if their energy and efforts are being received well in the direction they are being given, and/or if they are actually being given or just being taken through obligation, shame, routine, with no one benefiting. With the Scholar energy coming in, a kind of detached, cool-headedness might be involved around all of this and throughout the year. Even as there may be startling realizations or events, the Scholar year tends to help minimize the drama. In the Positive Pole, KNOWLEDGE, our students will likely pull from experience as a means of keeping perspective, gaining insight, and exploring options, while if in the Negative Pole, THEORY, our students may decide what is true without having any basis of experience for this conclusion, making decisions and taking actions based from lack of experience. The latter is how one learns to make decisions based on experience, so it is not a “bad thing” to be in Theory and to take risks that then gain one experience that can be turned into Knowledge. However, sometimes the decisions and choices are to take no risk, take no action, and to remain locked in familiarity, which is one of the slowest forms of “death” for a Scholar. By “death” we mean that the life force slowly drains from them in ways that become reflected as a lack of enthusiasm, a lack of curiosity, a lack of effort, a lack of interest, a lack of openness and inquisitiveness. These Scholars “know what they know” and that is determined to be enough, even if it is painfully outdated knowledge. And so the year of the Scholar can be explored in such a way, as well, locked in familiarity, lack of enthusiasm and curiosity, distanced from the very life force that fuels you. DATES OF INTEREST: Jan 11 - 15 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Higher Moving Kicks In - The sense of momentum and the “gathering storm” would likely begin to be more obvious over these few days and then stay in effect, unless there is a collective rejection of this and a drop into the default Moving Center is anchored. Jan 22 - 25 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Enthusiasm vs Familiarity pivot - The combination effects of Submission and Scholar kicks in here with a pivotal window that may bring to light where you are in terms of your enthusiasm and use of the life force, or your settling into familiarity and sense of disconnect from the life force. By “life force” we tend to mean “Essence.” NOTE: no Nexus in January HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JANUARY: CURIOSITY IS A LIFE FORCE - If you find that you are losing your curiosity, you are losing your life force. If you are losing your life force, you are rejecting Essence. If you are rejecting Essence, it is only a matter of effort and choice for the return in the direction of the life force and curiosity. When you find yourself dismissing your curiosity and enthusiasm, DO NOT. It is that simple. Even if briefly, allow it. Play with it. Explore it. Even if only in your mind. Play a game of “what if” in the most positive ways you can. WHAT DREAMS MAY COME - Dream activity will likely move into high activity over January as the Higher Moving Center kicks in and stirs up the Instinctive, Emotional, and Intellectual Centers, rearranging and calibrating your Health, your Cording, Agreements, Sequences, and Vectors, etc. Tracking your dreams over January and through March may provide you with some bizarrely wonderful entertainment, at worst, and profound symbolic and prophetic patterns at best.
  17. OMW - Feb 15, 2014 - Intimacy and Me [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. [MEntity] We can begin discussion on the subject of Intimacy, as requested.[MEntity] We have much to say on the subject over our years of communication with our students, so we remind you that the term "intimacy" may have brought with it variations of discussion relevant to the context at the time. There may be differences in what we have to say today because we will be speaking about this subject quite specifically, and in the context of your understanding it as a vital part of your well-being.[MEntity] Intimacy is one of the very few ways that the Personality can be in sync with the Essence, or even remotely Manifesting Essence, even when Essence is fully rejected by the Personality. Even those who are deeply asleep in life will feel the prompt for the experience that is Intimacy.[MEntity] This is because Intimacy is directly linked to the Higher Moving Center.[MEntity] There is a reason for the sequence of Centers/Chakras rising vertically through the body/Personality in a way that puts a Higher Center toward "the bottom." [MEntity] Tucked amid the three Lower Centers, and the Instinctive Center, that are immediately accessible at any point in the life, is the Higher Moving Center.[MEntity] This is because if there were no Higher Center "anchored" in the density that is the Physical Plane, a Body, and Personality, then the circuitry that would allow for true Manifestation of Essence would be lost. The entire cycle of incarnations would be a process of blindly sending out a body that would then blindly store experiences and then die, finally releasing that information to Essence.[MEntity] We know that many may feel that the process of evolution is tedious, but evolution would be made infinitely more tedious and complicated if there was no way for the Personality to know Essence, or for Essence to know Personality. [MEntity] So the Higher Moving Center tucked amid the Lower Centers ensures that there is, at least, an eventual potential for circuitry to be developed that is then built upon and secured over lifetimes.[MEntity] It is also amid the Lower Centers because it is one of the first Centers fully developed in a species, long before any potential for Sentience.[MEntity] The Higher Moving Center exists among nearly all forms of matter, but particularly among all "living" things.[MEntity] If there is procreation or reproduction, there is a Higher Moving Center.[MEntity] This is, actually, how any new Sentience to a planet is able to experience the variations of life on a planet as part of the process for deciding if that is where the cycle of incarnations will begin.[MEntity] We bring all of this to your attention because Intimacy is such a natural default for Essence, and is anchored so deeply into the navigational tactics for the Physical Plane, that even from long before "you" were "you," Intimacy was a primary experience for evolving.[MEntity] In other words, Intimacy IS a part of your life, whether you are aware of it, approving of it, recognizing it, defining it properly, accepting it, consciously pursuing it, or not.[MEntity] And though the concept and complexity of what Intimacy may mean to an individual over the course of many lifetimes, no matter what, INTIMACY WILL BE FULFILLED.[MEntity] When Intimacy is ignored, rejected, or subconsciously sought to be fulfilled, it will tend to be fulfilled through ADDICTION.[MEntity] We will describe Positive Pole of Intimacy here is REALIZATION (or Resonance), and the Negative Pole as NEED.[MEntity] As Intimacy is motivated directly by Essence, and is directly linked to a Higher Center, its Negative Pole is far from "bad," and is still quite comfortable to embrace.[MEntity] However, if Intimacy has fallen into NEED for too long, and that Need is not allowed or addressed, then the shift toward Addiction begins.[MEntity] Addiction is the long way around to REALIZATION.[MEntity] It is both a rejection of Intimacy, and a profoundly deep dive toward it.[MEntity] Personality cannot truly reject Intimacy, so the closest it can come to avoiding it is through Addictions.[MEntity] We will define "Addiction" here as compulsions that interfere with the capacity to choose against that compulsion. In other words, doing a lot of one thing does not mean it is an addiction, but doing it at the expense of other things that you would prefer to do, or should do for your well-being, then it is likely an addiction.[MEntity] Habits are not Addictions, but Addictions can be generated from habits.[MEntity] The reason Addiction is so intimately linked to Intimacy is because even Addiction is a path toward Realization, which is the ultimate goal of Intimacy.[MEntity] We will define "Realization" here as the pursuit/action/choice toward full awareness of something as an undeniable fact.[MEntity] All of these facts, or truths, are those that are of Essence.[MEntity] They are not subject to fears, second-guessing, rejection, etc.[MEntity] Examples of various pursuits for Realization are: I AM LOVED; I AM SAFE; I CAN LOVE; I AM VALUABLE; I LIKE MYSELF; I LIKE OTHERS; I AM NOT ALONE; etc.[MEntity] So as you pursue or allow Intimacy, let yourself play around with what you may be seeking to Realize. Often, that truth, that fact, is not far from your consciousness, and may often be related to your wounding. It will not change the status of your relationship to someone if you finally grasp why you are so attracted to that person, but it can bring about a deep peace and confidence in your self as representing Essence.[MEntity] No pursuit or allowance of Intimacy is all about the other person. It is generally 99% about YOU, and YOUR pursuit or allowance of Realizations.[MEntity] You want to Realize that you are loved, so you pursue relationships that help you realize this. You want to Realize that you are creative, so you pursue or allow relationships that help you realize this. You want to Realize that you are not alone, so you pursue intimacy with those who share in your perspective. And so on.[MEntity] There are 12 FORMS OF INTIMACY in your life.[MEntity] There are the 3 forms that are most dependent upon shared space and time:[MEntity] SENSUAL, PERCEPTIONAL, and MUTUAL.[MEntity] SENSUAL Intimacy is any form of touch, from the most sexual to the kindest of hugs. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in space.[MEntity] PERCEPTIONAL Intimacy is any form of shared perspective, shared truths, shared experiences. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in time.[MEntity] MUTUAL Intimacy is any form of shared support, exchanged help, sharing of resources. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in both space and time.[MEntity] The above forms of Intimacy are what most think of in terms of "Intimacy" and what most try to bring to any relationship of depth and longevity.[MEntity] When the above are missing from the life, Addiction is highly likely to be involved.[MEntity] However, if a fragment realizes that there are likely far more opportunities for Intimacy than those, he or she can let those broader forms of Intimacy be quite beneficial to the healing and opening that would allow for the more intimate forms above.[MEntity] That first group of 3 might be considered your ESSENTIAL forms of Intimacy, while the next 3 forms of Intimacy are what we might consider your FUNCTIONAL forms of Intimacy:[MEntity] These would be your PLAYFUL, PROJECTIONAL, and CORRECTIONAL forms of Intimacy.[MEntity] PLAYFUL forms of Intimacy are with those whom you simply like to play. This is a form of Intimacy. It does not matter if you know one another beyond this; if you share in the joy of playing together, you are experiencing Intimacy.[MEntity] This gives Realization to the joy and pleasure of form in space.[MEntity] PROJECTIONAL forms of Intimacy are those where you share a common goal, common responsibilities, tasks, cause, agenda. [MEntity] It is allows you to Realize your effectiveness of form in time.[MEntity] CORRECTIONAL forms of Intimacy are where you share in mistakes, failing, commiserating, empathy, recovery, and strengths.[MEntity] This form of Intimacy allows you to Realize both the joy and effectiveness of yourself in form through time and space.[MEntity] Keep in mind that Intimacy does not always "feel good." It can be challenging, terrifying, and awkward. This is because it is not a path that leads you directly to bliss. It is a path that leads you directly INTO WHATEVER IS BLOCKING YOUR BLISS.[MEntity] So the Correctional form of Intimacy can be difficult, for example.[MEntity] The Correctional form of Intimacy marks a kind of shift into even broader contexts for Intimacy, and these tend to be prompted toward, within, and from experiences that can often be far from pleasant.[MEntity] We will refer to this next tier as your TRANSFORMATIONAL forms of Intimacy:[MEntity] These would be your PAINFUL, BEAUTIFUL, and TRUTHFUL forms of Intimacy.[MEntity] Your PAINFUL forms of Intimacy are found in the sharing of conflicts, resistance, combat, hatred, agitation, aggrivation, annoyance, etc. The more a person prompts this in you, the more Intimate you are with him or her. This can be one of the most powerful forms of Intimacy to embrace, because this is where you can Realize WHAT YOU RESIST.[MEntity] This is where you have become immovable as a form in space, or put another way: how you have become stuck as a Personality.[MEntity] For many of our students, the Essential and Functional forms of Intimacy, while important, are fairly embraced and realized, but once Intimacy has moved into the broader contexts, the rejection begins to be noticeable.[MEntity] Your BEAUTIFUL forms of Intimacy are with those who share in your tastes, your preferences, your patterns of preference, including music, art, nature, performances, and even in slang, language, culture, social behaviors and expressions.[MEntity] This sounds "beautiful" until we look a bit closer at how rigidly the boundaries are for many of our students who define themselves by these preferences and patterns.[MEntity] What tends to be missed in this form of Intimacy is that it is not about it being only on your terms. It is about SHARING in a pattern of preference. This means, it may not be one of your familiar patterns, but someone else's. It may not be known to you already, and may require time, but there is a pattern here that is an invitation to Beauty, to Intimacy.[MEntity] So this form of Intimacy helps you to Realize how you have become stuck in your patterns across time.[MEntity] The TRUTHFUL form of Intimacy is when sharing in a moment of utter honesty, even if unprompted, unsolicited, and uninvited. It is much like a child's honesty being expressed at the most inappropriate moment. This form of Intimacy is full of surprises and disorientation, and can come from anywhere, anytime, from anyone.[MEntity] This form of Intimacy has been dubbed "brutal honesty" by some, and then hijacked as a form of abuse by others, but there is a difference between sharing in a truth that strikes a chord of validity, and hearing a "truth" that is merely a hurtful opinion.[MEntity] "Brutal Honesty" is innocent in its presentation. It is known that it will be, and needs to be, heard. It is not intended to be hurtful. However, TRUTHFUL Intimacy can often come out in angry words that have withheld the truth, or collaborated in your avoidance of the truth, and can come out in arguments.[MEntity] If you find you are in a moment of sharing Truthful Intimacy, even if it comes in the heat of an argument, you can stop for a moment and hear that truth, and Realize that you have been seen, known, understood, even if it is ugly to you, or unwanted or rejected by you. It is a Realization of the Truth of YOU, another part of your coming home, across time and space.[MEntity] The next tier would be referred to as the DIRECTIONAL, or INSTRUCTIONAL forms of Intimacy.[MEntity] We use thes terms because they capture the effect of these forms of Intimacy in returning one directly to the core of truth, love, and energy of one's Essence.[MEntity] These would be the CATASTROPHIC, PIVOTAL, and UNCONDITIONAL.[MEntity] Catastrophic Intimacy can bring together entire cities, cultures, and societies to a common ground of Intimacy. This is a kind of ultimate Realization of Oneness in form. On an individual level, this can be the intimacy shared with one who must heal you, or be healed by you, or be mutually healing, and there is a Realization of importance to each of you.[MEntity] Pivotal Intimacy is shared as cultures and societies evolve beyond limitations for who and how their peoples are treated, included, excluded, etc, and the move toward equality and enlightenment is secured. It is a form of growing up, maturing. And this is true on an individual level, as well. Pivotal Intimacy is when you finally "get" another person, perspective, or direction that was rejected by you in the past, or misunderstood, or ignored. Pivotal Intimacy is the realization of our evolution.[MEntity] UNCONDITIONAL Intimacy is in the sharing of spirituality, philosophies, the meaning of experiences, and the greater contexts of existence. We refer to this as "Unconditional" because in most instances where these things are shared, very little else is questioned about that person.[MEntity] Of course, then, the other forms of intimacy come into play, and all hell can break loose to evoke many other layers of intimacy, but Unconditional Intimacy presumes such profound similarity, that it lures in all walks of life into the same space and time, and then the real work of Intimacy begins.[MEntity] Many of our students know this.[MEntity] And so, the above are all of the ways in which your Essence will manifest its pursuit and allowance of Intimacy through you as a Personality.[MEntity] Our suggestion to each of you is to look at each form of Intimacy to see if there can be examples listed for each.[MEntity] Keep in mind that the first two tiers are fairly ordinal in their experience, while the second two are fairly cardinal, so you will probably have more examples of the first 6 forms than the last 6, with more of the last 6 being from personal history or even historic.[MEntity] In other words, the first 6 will tend to happen more often in more ways than the last 6.[MEntity] But ALL 12 are active and alive in you, your life, and your relationships.[MEntity] This pursuit or allowance of Intimacy is not just for sharing with another, but also about your internal sense of Intimacy with yourself, as well.[MEntity] Ultimately, if you understand all of the ways in which you gravitate toward intimacy, and how those forms are fulfilled, your expansion of choice can be greater, more responsible, more conscious, and your benefit shared more kindly and meaningfully.[MEntity] We have time through this channel for up to 3 questions that may serve the group. We can take those now.[DianeHB] How does one embrace Painful forms of Intimacy?[MEntity] Remember that "Pain" equals "Resistance." That is all there is to it. Nearly all experiences from which one grows are a product of FRICTION. Some Friction is pleasurable, some is painful. But Pain is still just information. It is true whether emotional or physical or mental. If you burn yourself on the stove, it is the friction of too much heat. The pain is informing you to pull from the heat. You treat the wound and learn from it. Early forms of learning are to simply avoid the stove altogether. Later forms begin to realize there is no danger, but that one need only be careful, conscious, aware, and to use better tools for navigating the stove and its heat. This process is the same for every other body that is you.[MEntity] So as an older soul, it is not about avoiding the source of pain, but about learning to navigate and use better tools.[MEntity] Yes, some people may require the equivalent of a pot holder to deal with, but you can deal with them. And yes, some may be hotter than others, etc. but to embrace Painful Intimacy means embracing what you are learning from the information in the pain.[MEntity] That is what matters.[DianeHB] I see, thank you.[ViP1] Hi Michael[ViP1] You said: 'This pursuit or allowance of Intimacy is not just for sharing with another, but also about your internal sense of Intimacy with yourself, as well.'[ViP1] Do recurring nightmares indicate a lack of intimacy with the self, and if so, which forms of intimacy are involved (and how to gain that intimacy/fix it?)[MEntity] We would not consider dreams or nightmares to fall into the context of Intimacy here, because we are speaking of Intimacy as that which is prompted in the sharing of time, space, and form with another fragment or fragments. Even though others may be involved, Intimacy is still a matter of that which is internal and external, so that is what we meant. However, if you find that your nightmares are prompted by some form of intimacy with another, there may be processes here that relate to Painful or Truthful Intimacy.[Maureen] Without diminishing the complexity and the varied nature of sports, is watching sports, especially contact sports, a way that many people (mostly men) can vicariously experience intimacy?[MEntity] Oh, yes. If this is an experienced being shared with others, even if after a game, in communcation about the game, in celebrating with others, it can easily be Playful, but if done while alone and with no one else, it may simply be a form of entertainment.[MEntity] When it comes to Sports, it can often fall into the Unconditional Intimacy, with wide presumptions of intimacy being shared because of shared support for a team.[MEntity] We will conclude here for today. We think we have shared enough with you so that each of you can look more closely at how Intimacy works in your life, how you might avoid it, where you might not be recognizing it, and how better to embrace it in all of its forms.
  18. Michael Speaks: Healing and Healers May 8, 2011 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here now. We can begin on the subject of Healing & Healers. We will, first, define "Healing" and "Healers." We will define Healing as "a return to, extraction of, or an imposition of Order from Chaos" and Healer as "that which, or those whom, facilitate the return to, extraction of, or imposition of Order from Chaos." Wounding, however it manifests, is Chaos, or at least seeming Chaos. There are really only 7 ways in which a Body can die, or be wounded. These 7 ways can overlap, and some may be able to refine these to a greater degree than we have through this channel, but those 7 Basic Ways of Wounding/Dying would be: Illness, Poisoning, Impact, Impaling, Suffocation, Starvation/Dehydration, and Natural/Shutdown. Each of these can bring wounding or death, and can be brought to any Body, including the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and "Spiritual" Bodies. Some of the terms would not be so literal in terms of the less-tangible Bodies, but are relevant terms. Death and Wounding are parts of the experience of the Higher Moving Center, which is the spectrum between Chaos and Beauty. Beauty is simply the recognition of patterns versus the lack of recognition of patterns that is Chaos. We use the term "recognition" because often the difference between Chaos and Beauty is a matter of recognition, or perception, and is a relative state. There are those who "suffer" wounding in ways that "should" bring about a great deal of Chaos, but those individuals return to, extract from, or impose a new order from the chaos in a way that is HEALING. There are those who have "no reason" to suffer and have lost all recognition of order, or beauty, in the life, and these individuals can truly be wounded. And so it is that the differences between Wounding and Healing are as "simple" as the differences between Chaos and Beauty. And so it is that the difference between Wounding and Death are the differences between Chaos and Beauty, as well. Wounding is Chaos. Death is Order/Beauty. Every Personality and Lifetime will explore the spectrum between Order and Chaos, but will always end in Order as a means for Review in the afterlife, and Death is that process of returning everything back to Order, or Beauty. Order can also be returned within the life through HEALING, and since not everyone wants to die as a means to regain Order, there is a necessity for HEALERS. This necessity is vital enough that it is one of the 12 Primary Support Positions within any Circle of Support. This means that every single fragment has at least one Healer accessible at all times in every incarnation and beyond. This may seem a rather sweeping generalization as there are many who suffer without apparent access to healing, but this apparent lack of access is a result of complications that are often unnecessary and are products of choice. A society can become rather powerful in imprinting various individuals to only accept the standardized methods and providers of Healing, which may or may not have helped. The Healing that a fragment may require is not always as obvious as his or her wounding. But the Healer and Healing that a fragment most-requires is ALWAYS accessible in some way. The first key in accessing that is through the realization of the fact that no Healer or Healing can actually HEAL; they can only facillitate Healing and Healing Methods. The only one who can ever truly heal you, is you. The individual can always override a Healer and Healing. However, the necessity for Healers is because often the first step to True Healing is in the ASKING FOR HELP. Wounding, or the plunge into Chaos within a lifetime, is a vital part of the experience of living because it is one of the few states or experiences that can be explored that provokes the Universal Truth of Oneness, or in simpler terms, the fact that you are not alone. Ever. Even if the Wounding leads to Death, or if someone's asking for help is still met with Death, the profound validity of that Oneness and the necessity for reaching out, is often registered in ways that are never lost by Essence. The 7 Ways to Die, or 7 Methods of Wounding, correspond to the Axes in ways that can often shed light for Healing and for Healers. Illness and Poisoning are Inspirational-based Woundings/Deaths. Impaling/Impact are Action-based Wounding/Deaths. Suffocation/Starvation are Expression-based Woundings/Deaths; and Shutting Down/Natural methods are Assimilative. Some of these are obvious, and some may not be so clear, and while we offer up these correlations, we will not say that they are rules or static associations. For example, we can say that MOST Illnesses or intaking of Poisons are MOSTLY related to issues of Self-Esteem, which are extensions of the Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. This kind of statement can be explored in a multitude of ways. The immune system is directly connected to Self-Esteem, and so it goes that any fluctuation in Self-Esteem is a fluctuation in Immunity. Self-deprecation is almost always at the core of Illness. The toxins that one takes in without question or concern through his or her eating of poor diet, might be an example of Arrogance at the core of slow Poisoning of the body. And so on... There are only 4 ways through which any of these 7 Methods of Wounding/Death can be implemented: Suicide, Homicide, Accident, and Natural, each corresponding to an Axis; Inspirational, Action, Expression, and Assimilative, respectively. Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers. And there are only ever 3 methods of Healing: through Truth, Love, or Energy. Facilitating Order within the Chaos of the Truth, Love, or Energy of an individual. This means that Healers range far beyond those who actively practice Healing, or those who specifically work with the various Bodies. In fact, every single one of you are Healers in at least one other Fragment's Circle of Support in every life. If this were not so, then Healers and Healing would not be so accessible to every fragment. One does not have to identify with being a "healer" to be a Healer. If you help to bring Order to someone's Chaos, you are a Healer. If you help someone to experience, comprehend, see, feel, or hear the Beauty that is inherent in any part of his or her life, you are a Healer. Anyone who can help others to bring Order to the Truth, Love, or Energy in someone's life, is a Healer. Whether this is done actively and consciously, or passively and unconsciously, does not matter. And so it is that each of you will always be in a position to HEAL YOUR OWN LIFE, which by definition simply means to bring Beauty to the Chaos of it, whether this be in Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, or Spiritual form. Bringing Beauty or Order to any part of your life helps to bring that Healing into every Body you are. Often, for instance, the Chaos that is in your Physical Body can only be masked by the treatments offered for the symptoms that this Body exhibits, but the True Healing would come from the Beauty/Order that is brought to your Emotional Body/Life. Much of what passes for Healing is only Treatment. Treatment is necessary, and is not a "bad thing," but it is not Healing. Understanding the various correlations above, and the 3 methods of Healing as they correlate to Wounding, can also shed light on the requirements for True Healing. For instance, those who are Wounded by Illness or Posioning usually require True Love for True Healing. Those who are wounded by Impaling or Impact often require True Order for True Healing; those who are wounded by Suffocation/Starvation often require The Truth for for True Healing. Keep in mind that there is a limitation on language here that can make some of these correlations seem confusing, so we encourage creative understanding here so that the terms are not always literal. For instance, it might sound strange that Impaling or Impact requires True Order/Beauty, but if you think of these Wounding correlations as extensions of Martyrdom and Impatience, both rooted in fears of losing Control, you might see why any healing would require a shift in understanding the nature of Beauty and Order. A fragment who is thrown through a windsheild because of his Impatience might be an example. A fragment who is rendered lifeless because of the "impaling" of her heart by the rejection of a loved one might be another example. Being Wounded and Being Healed are MESSY. There is no hard, clean, perfect correlation, and there is often a great deal of overlapping of correlations, so we offer these insights only as guidelines for those who explore Healing, or need Healing. ALL Wounding is a progression that begins INTELLECTUALLY, then EMOTIONALLY, and then PHYSICALLY. This means that if Wounding has come to the level of Physicality, it is almost assured that there is Wounding "up through" the Emotions and Intellect. When we say "All wounding," we mean ALL. Even "Accidents." This does not mean that Wounding is a fault of the Wounded, but it is often a result of a path of choices, internally and externally, that led to the state that allowed for, or created, the Wounding. Even in cases of Homicide. Again, this is not a matter of fault or choices made on obvious levels, but there is something to the fact that two people can be in the same place at the same time doing the same things and only one is Wounded. [liiona24] Please comment on the validity Of the Reconnection As brought forth by Eric Pearl as " new" Healing energy There is no "new" healing energy. All Healing is essentially the return of Order from Chaos, however that is described or packaged, tangibly or intangibly. There are many illnesses in modern times that are susceptible to "miracles" or "energy healing" because the illness never truly existed in the dimension from which it was diagnosed, such as AIDS, Cancers, several other chronic issues. This is not to say that there are no such things as collapses of immune systems, or Cancers, or other chronic issues, but those categories have a percentage of diagnoses that are valid diagnoses at one point, but because the "illness" is not Physically-rooted, the return of Order to the Emotions, or Intellect, can "cure" the "illness." Often, the return of Order to the Intellect and Emotion does not require Physical Healing, or Treatment, but a simple shift in beliefs or feelings. Energetic Healing can ONLY ever return order to the Intellect or Emotion, which may then result in being reflected Physically, of course. When we say "Energetic" here, we refer to those practices that would not require Physical contact in any way. In short, to clarify with Marion: we think the idea of "The Reconnection" is more likely a "Repackaging" of ideals and energies that have always been available. This is not to say that the repackaging is "bad," because even our own teaching requires repackaging for different students with different capacities for hearing us. [Nicholas] When Dr. Pearl and others refer to "new" healing, could they be referring to the validity that as a collective, we are opening up to more possibilities of healing as a reflection of the shift to Mature Soul paradigm? In response to Nicholas: we cannot speak on the behalf of the fragment who is known as "Dr. Pearl," or his associates, but we can say that a Mature-based Paradigm would have far more validity to the concept of "Energetic" healing, since most Emotional and Intellectual Wounding would also be considered as valid. In a Young-based paradigm, most Healing is only considered valid on the levels of the tangible. It is only in recent years, relatively speaking, that the concept of Therapy was considered something of validity."Therapy," in terms of Psychologists, Pscyho-, etc. [TimW] Can you please elaborate a little more on what you said, "Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers"? Possibly a couple of examples with relation to physical "energetic" healing (if time permits)? For example, Tim, those who are wounded from attempted Homicide would clearly benefit from healing that focuses on the Action Axis, so that a sense of Order for that individual's Time or Space is vital, or put another way: that the Martyrom and Impatience is addressed. Those who suffer from the wounding of attempted Homicides do well to have had their sense of Control brought into focus for their lives in some way, because Homicide, or Impaling/Impact, on a Body CAN throw the entire life into absolute lack of control. For those who are wounded by the methods of Suicide, it is vital that Inspiration is brought back into his or her life. Suicides are usually the result of Inspirational elements collapsing into Chaos, so a return to Order in that context can help bring about True Healing. We realize that "Suicide" is also the Negative Pole of Self-destruction, which is an Expression Axis Chief Feature, but this is another example of Context. In the context of Methods for implementing Wounding, Suicide correlates to Inspiration. In the context of Results of Fear, Suicide correlates to Expression. For those who are Wounded by Accidents, there is a necessity for those fragments to understand "the message" in the "Accident," as all Accidents are Expressions, or Messages. In fact, there are no "accidents," but it is a valid category for understanding how Wounding is implemented, and Accidents equal Messages. Healers, then, would help that fragment to understand what "lesson" or "message" might have been in the accident. [Diane_H] Can you explain the difference between Intellectual and Emotional healing? Are they often intertwined? Intellectual Healing would require the Order returned to the Intellect, or the Intellectual Center to return to the Positive Pole of INSIGHT. This is usually a matter of returning the fragment to a state of honesty about his or her life in a way that brings that Insight, instead of a chronic state of REASON. A chronic state of Reason will bring the Intellect into a constant state of overdrive, looking for patterns that are not there, or creating patterns that are not valid, forcing justifications, reasons, explanations for that which is not understood. This, then, can lead to affect the Emotional Center in a way that pulls the Emotions into a chronic state of Negative Pole, which is Sentimentality. Sentimentality is the confusion and blurring between Symbols and Meanings, and when Symbols and Meanings become confused, Beliefs are generated. And so the Intellect that forced a false pattern then begins to believe it in the Emotions. A simplistic example would be in one who might Think that someone's intentions were to hurt her, and so begins to believe that this person did hurt her, because she can feel that hurt. But the truth will have been that she forced an explanation or a reason for someone else's choices that she did not like, and then the person who symbolized "Love" for her is gone, so that means "love" is also gone, and now she has become Intellectually and Emotionally wounded. To bring Healing to her Emotionally, she will have to regain the Order that allows for a person to symbolize Love, but does not confuse the conduit of Love for Love, itself. [Diane_H] So it could be said that Intellectual wounding comes from one's interpretation of symbols, and Emotional wounding is the emotion that result from it? If the Healing is not addressed Intellectually or Emotionally, it can then move into Physicality, and she will either open up to, or create a path to, Homicide, Suicide, Accident, or Natural methods of implementing one of the 7 Woundings. Yes, Diane, that could be one way of describing a pattern, though we might clarify the statement to read: Intellectual Wounding can come from False or Forced Interpretation, and Emotional Wounding is the Belief/Feelings that support in that Falsehood or Forced Interpretation. [Kathryn41] I assume that 'wounding' can also be a 'choice' for a life experience, but how often does the choice to experience one type of wounding lead to a collateral type of wounding, for example, a consequence of choosing a body type that allows for the chosen wounding to occur but experiencing an additional injury/illness that came along because of that body type? We will say here that it is rare that Wounding is CHOSEN, though sometimes, it is. What is a more accurate way to understand the nature of Choice, in this regard, is that Wounding is often a RESULT of Choices. [Kathryn41] the example I can use is a child with type 1 diabetes - born with the condition - a chosen condition more easily manifested in lunar body and then later in life experiencing another type of injury for which the lunar body is especially susceptible A Body Type is chosen that may have predispositions to certain health issues or deformities, but it was not necessarily the health issues or deformities that were chosen, but that they were hooked in to other choices that were more important as priorities. For instance, an Essence may have thought it was a great idea, or a great method for balancing Karma, to choose a Body Type that may lend itself to a sort of dependency that allowed for kindness, patience, and Love to come into the experiences of the Personality, from within and without. Often these "great ideas" go in all kinds of directions once the life is in motion, but that is part of the Chaos and Beauty that is inherent in any life, even in the most-perfect of body with the most-perfect of plans and Karma-free life. [Oscar] What would those wounded by natural/shutting down need for True Healing, or is there no healing possible since it's natural? UNDERSTANDING. That is all. Those who are Wounded by Natural Causes/Shutting Down can often do best with a simple bit of comfort in Wisdom shared with him or her or from him or her. In terms of Wounding/Dying, Natural Causes/Shutting Down is about bringing comprehension to the moment about the life before exiting, and this can show up as the life "flashing before their eyes," or from loved ones around the bed side, etc. In terms of Wounding/Dying, it might even be better understood as "Gratitude" that is a part of the Healing. In terms of Implementation, with something like a Natural Disaster which may bring Impact, Impaling, Illness, Poison, etc, it can still be helpful for those who experienced that Implementation to grasp the nature of Nature, so that it is not seen as personal. Though it will always be the most-helpful to focus on the actual Method of Wounding, for Healing purposes. [VLS] Is there any healing that can be done with the dying involving touch, if so can you advise the best approach-thank you ALL Physical forms of Healing affect Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies, whereas Emotional Healing can only affect Emotional and Intellectual Bodies, and Intellectual Healing is limited to Intellectual Bodies. This is because the denser the form of Healing, the more it can be accessed by the subtler Bodies. This is not to say that Emotional Healing cannot bring about Physical Healing, but it would not be direct. Physical Healing, or rather, having a Physical Medium for Healing, can bring about multiple layers of Energy for use in the multiple bodies. For instance, your Touch can bring with it the Comfort that is of the Physical Level of Healing, the Affection that is the Emotional Level of Healing, and the Permission that is the Intellectual Level of Healing. We are speaking to you about a very specific kind of Touch that you bring, and not all Touch would bring that same kind of Healing. A simple resting of the hand on the person who is exiting is enough, and in some cases, the moving of the energy of the bodies through use of swirls and various contact points, can be the form that is used. We will clarify here that all Bodies are interconnected in many ways, so the Healing that is offered without Physicality does not mean it will not help the Physical Bodies. And not all Physical contact is a form of Healing, but is often forms of Treatment. For instance, the Emergency Room of a Hospital is mostly-filled with Treatments, not Healing. Healing often comes later. [DavidB] Someone asked me to pose this question: "What makes one healer more effective than another?" RESONANCE. There is no Healing between a Healer and The Wounded without Resonance. This is why even the most "whackadoodle" of false healers can bring about such "miracles" (which is a term to describe false or misunderstood forms of Beauty from Chaos) because there is Resonance between the two fragments. And it is why the consistency of even the most powerful Healers cannot facilitate Healing for everyone, because there must be Resonance. Resonance can only come through Empathy, which is built from Experience, which may or may not always come from within the current lifetime. In other words, one can only truly facilitate Healing for that which he or she has already healed within himself or herself, even if that healing came in other lives. We know this is a rather broad topic, but we think we have covered enough tonight for some provocation of thought and exploration that may shed insight into the experience of Healing and Wounding. We will conclude here. Goodnight to each of you. Goodbye.
  19. "The Power of Desire" Michael Speaks Live Chat February 23, 2014 [MEntity] Hello to everyone. We are here, now. We can begin. [MEntity] We understand the request for discussion today to be that on the topic of DESIRE, as a part of the dynamic of what we term the Higher Moving Center. [MEntity] The Higher Moving Center is the part of you that is directly linked to the Energy that moves your life, your Essence, and Personality forward in its explorations and experiences. [MEntity] As many of our students know, we describe the universe as being a constant mix of Truth, Love, and Energy. These are Universal, in that this will be true in any Universe, on any planet, in any Sentient Species, etc. Beliefs and philosophies and religions and laws will not have any bearing on the validity of these factors that comprise any universe. [MEntity] In the most simplistic of ways to understand this, it could be said that your entire life, your personal universe, is entirely Built on Love, or exists because of Love, is interpreted through Truth, and Navigated or evolved by Energy. [MEntity] This may sound a bit "new agey," as some of our students may phrase it, but it would be valid, nonetheless, that these are not just broad concepts of a philosophical nature, but are tangible constructs within your own life. [MEntity] Another way to understand the Truth, Love, and Energy of your life and of you is to think of Energy as being paths, Truth being your interpretation of the various paths, and Love being the vehicle that carries you along those paths. [MEntity] In this discussion, then, we will focus on that media of Energy that are the paths of your life. [MEntity] The Higher Moving Center corresponds to the 2nd Chakra in the Chakra System, which is referred to as the Sacral or Sexual Chakra. [MEntity] This is the only Higher Center that is set "low" among the other Centers/Chakras. [MEntity] This is because Energy is the path that extends from Tao and back to Tao, through all of the Planes. All other forces depend upon this medium for their existence, including Truth and Love. [MEntity] The densest Plane of existence, the Physical Plane, is made of the same "stuff" that is the all-encompassing Tao that is the least-dense of all. [MEntity] We point out these broader concepts about Energy because these higher and broader concepts about how Energy works on the scale of a Universe is exactly how it works on the scale that is "you." [MEntity] In other words, even as "you" are the desnsest version of who and how you will ever be, you are still made up of everything about You that is of every degree of lesser density, as well. You are a Body, Personality, and Essence. [MEntity] These are in order of most dense to least. [MEntity] And so, in the same way that fragments who start off as the least-dense of who and how they are, they dive into density for the same reasons that they return from that density. [MEntity] The differences between existing in greater density versus being less-dense is that there is more against which to bump up against. [MEntity] Therefore, the Physical Plane, and being a Body, can be painful, since there is greater Friction in that density. [MEntity] On the other hand, the greatest and most-unique of blissful experiences can be had with that Friction is not painful. [MEntity] The Physical Plane is of the greatest density, and so has the greatest and most pervasive of potential for Friction, and Friction brings the greatest of pain and suffering and challenges, along with the greatest of bliss, joy, and euphoria. [MEntity] So on the most simplistic of levels, your navigation through any life is all about your maneuvering through, between, around, over, and into Pain and Pleasure. [MEntity] The difference between the two is just as simple: RESISTANCE. [MEntity] Consider the pain of a serrated knife across your skin versus the quick and fairly painless effect of the needle used for most injections. Both are breaking the skin, but one is going to be more painful than the other because of the Resistance. So in the most literal of terms, this Resistance is present as a force that generates Pain. [MEntity] The Energy of your life works in much the same way as this crude comparison. [MEntity] Some experiences are like a serrated knife, and some are the prick of a needle; some are harmful like the knife, and some are beneficial like a shot for your health. [MEntity] As you progress from your first life through to your last, this progression from pain/resistance to pleasure begins to become more and more pronounced and important. [MEntity] In those early lives, Pain was not a "bad" thing because it was a part of simply learning how to live, be alive, survive, and often pain was one of the ways through which that was accomplished. "I fell off of a cliff. That hurt. Do not do that again." [MEntity] In fact, the earlier incarnations become so dependent upon, and trusting of, pain as a form of navigation, that it takes one all the way through the final Levels of the Mature Soul Age to *really* get it that Pleasure can be trusted as much as Pain. [MEntity] It could be said that to be an Old Soul is greatly about reversing this dependency upon Pain, and learning to trust Pleasure. [MEntity] This is difficult when the world still imposes the imprinting that Pain is much more trustworthy, and that one's pain helps define him or her, and that if one has not suffered enough, then one is not deserving enough, and so on. [MEntity] So the Old Souls can fall prey to this cultural imprinting, and do all they can to validate the meaning and value of their existence by suffering along with everyone else. [MEntity] This is not to say that any suffering imposed upon an Old Soul is by choice. We are not speaking of those instances that are simply inherent risks of being Physical. Scathing of the bodies will always be a risk to any Physical incarnation, regardless of beliefs, conscious or subconscious. [MEntity] However, some of the most mundane of challenges that the Old Soul must endure can often be buried in melodramatic suffering that is completely unnecessary and absurdly out of proportion to the challenge. If an Old Soul must "work for a living" along with everyone else so as to participate in the society and culture he or she is in, it does not have to be experienced as suffering. This suffering is not only meant to help falsely prove his or her worth in some way, but to make an empty statement of entitlement that caters to some idea that the Old Soul must surely be above those mundane demands. [MEntity] So when it comes to the ENERGY of your life, our first suggestion posed to each of you would be that you ask yourselves how much Energy is used in the upholding of the unnecessary idea of SUFFERING as your primary defense of your value, position, and meaning in your life? How much Energy is used to undermine your mundane existence as if you should not be inconvenienced by the challenges of being Physical? [MEntity] Pain is information. It is not bad. It is not good. It is information. It is an indication of Resistance. Resistance is not bad, nor is it good. It is a necessity for navigation. However, suffering is often the distorted version of PLEASURE. [MEntity] Again, this is not to minimize or dismiss valid Suffering. We are speaking here of those many instances where a situation is compounded for the sake of a distorted form of Pleasure. [MEntity] The reason many do this is because they have not learned to trust True Pleasure. [MEntity] Suffering is the closest to Pleasure that fragment feels he or she can get. [MEntity] Through Suffering, there can come many "benefits." [MEntity] In most cases, that means the manipulation of others so that the one suffering can TAKE Pleasure, rather than having created it or given it or shared it. [MEntity] Consider the child who is screaming and crying because he did not get what he wants. [MEntity] For many, this method simply becomes refined when an adult. [MEntity] In all cases such as this, and even in the worst of these cases, it is merely that this fragment is seeking a path of return to order, to safety, to peace, resonance, harmony, beauty, just like every other form or matter and consciousness in the universe. [MEntity] And this method works. Until it does not. [MEntity] Once it does not, there is a turning point, or a point of no return, if you will. [MEntity] Eventually the universe no longer works very well for you in that way. Suffering begins to seem silly. It no longer serves to bring you even false pleasure. Taking Pleasure begins to feel ugly. And so the path toward creating and sharing Pleasure begins, and your Energy shifts. [MEntity] That turning point tends to come in one lifetime or another, and sometimes several times across different lifetimes, depending upon one's Frequency. [MEntity] Your access to all of that Energy that permeates all of the Universe, and was your path "here" and is your path "home," is no longer dependent upon navigation that is bound by the trust in pain or false pleasures, but begins to shift into a realization that true pleasure can be trusted, too. [MEntity] Many of you are only now learning what it even means to know "true pleasure." [MEntity] True Pleasure is simple. It is a sense of gratitude and appreciation for even the most mundane of your existence. It is a realization that even the most challenging elements of who and how you are things that simply make up a small part of the vast range of experiences one can have in a day, a year, a lifetime, or across lifetimes. [MEntity] The Positive Pole of the Higher Moving Center is BEAUTY. The Negative Pole is DESIRE. In the same way that no Chief Negative Feature can have a "good" Positive Pole, as that "positive" is simply relative to the spectrum of fear that is described by that Chief Feature, so can no Higher Center have a "bad" negative pole, as all Higher Centers are directly linked to those primary building blocks of the universe. . [MEntity] BEAUTY as the Positive Pole of the Higher Moving Center, then, is the recognition of patterns that are experienced as such harmony that they are truly beautiful. DESIRE, is that path along the way to that recognition. [MEntity] The reason DESIRE is "negative" is simply because, relatively speaking, it is apart from the Beauty, on its way to it, so is technically separate from it, but Desire is how you get there. [MEntity] And Desire, as a path toward Beauty, is everything you find pleasurable, joyful, playful, and are discovered through sharing, invitation, and impulses. not through forcing, taking, manipulating, or compulsions. [MEntity] Desire simply describes that part of you that is co-creating the life with Essence, and is hooked into that natural flow of consciousness, creativity, and choice that leads one all the way to Beauty. Desire is that part of you that knows that the path is not pre-paved with gold so that you know exactly what it is and where it goes, but that you leave that path paved with gold, so to speak, because it was yours, and that is what matters. [MEntity] Desire means listening to your quiet impulses, and to your gentle invitations, and to your sense of sharing. [MEntity] For the Old Soul who "should not have to work," as our crude example earlier, Desire can be the shift away from the practical necessity of work, and toward what matters even more from there. [MEntity] Let your few hours of the day that are not obligated to work be free to be full of Desire, creativity, choice, pleasure. [MEntity] Let your actions, choices, words, expression, motivations, intentions, etc. reflect your Desires, with "Desires" meaning that part of you that seeks the creation and sharing of Beauty. [MEntity] If Beauty is the "recognition of patterns," then Desire is the "conscious contribution to those patterns." [MEntity] The Old Soul who is on the path, who is moving beyong suffering and pain as a primary form of navigation, and is embracing Beauty, is the Old Soul who has realized he or she is a spectrum of experiences that is inclusive of both the long-trusted pain as information, and the newer relationship with pleasure that will now lead one home. [MEntity] Before we open the floor, we will say that for anyone who has found oneself feeling disconnected from Beauty, Desire, or feeling lost in how to move from suffering to pleasure, it can be as simple as a matter of a good laugh that helps clear your path again. [MEntity] Laughter is the biological response to ONENESS, to BEAUTY, to ENERGY. All Humor is merely the resolution of paradox, the unexpected. We know it can seem morbid, but much of even the worst of life is far more hilarious from the perspective of Essence than that of Personality. This is not to diminish the point of view of a Personality, but as the Old Soul Manifests Essence, much of what seemed to be such a struggle can take on a much greater levity. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS [ViP] Hi Michael, regarding this: [ViP] "Desire, as a path toward Beauty, is everything you find pleasurable, joyful, playful, and are discovered through sharing, invitation, and impulses. not through forcing, taking, manipulating, or compulsions." [ViP] If one is a food connoisseur, one may find pleasure and joy in experiencing different flavours of meat, and share that with others. However, the meat came from killing another lifeform (possibly sentient, as in the consumption of whale meat.) [ViP] Not necessarily as a necessity for survival, but the pleasure of it. [ViP] Is the experience of such pleasure (at the direct cost of pain being experienced by other pain-aware life, despite other options being available) a step on the road to finding Beauty? [MEntity] As one begins to understand the nature of True Pleasure, it cannot be defined in any way that is based in TAKING. If one's pleasure is the cause of true suffering and pain to another, it is not True Pleasure. The sharing in pleasures that are of the palate do not require harm, and this begins to be understood as the circle of consciousness expands. [ViP] is this true of all sentient life with the ability to choose (including dolphins, which must eat fish?) [MEntity] There are many who find pleasure that is directly or indirectly the cause of harm, suffering, and pain to another, and the distinction can be difficult to discern, but we suggest that the more directly one can choose and create away from that cause of harm, suffering, and pain, then it will likely begin to be more and more of an obstacle to true pleasure. [MEntity] There is a vast difference between the consuming of foods for survival and sustenance, regardless of what those foods are, and the causing of suffering and pain to multiple species for the taking of pleasure and convenience. [MEntity] That choice will always be up to the individual, but as consciousness expands, so does compassion, and as compassion expands, so does the capacity for pleasure, and as the capacity for pleasure expands, so does the desire for extending that to all existence. [MEntity] This is why many Old Souls "shut down" upon waking up, so to speak. That turning point when it is realized just how much unnecessary suffering is in the world, and imposed by others, and the subsequent helplessness of it all, can cause the late Mature to Old Soul to simply turn a blind eye and focus into a very small parameter of the life. [MEntity] That is natural. Eventually, the power of choice returns and it is used to serve one's sense of compassion and consciousness, and this begins to be beautiful. It matters that you have followed your Desires toward Beauty, not that others have not. [MEntity] Every individual who owns that path, helps generate the capacity for others to recognize their own. [brian] You mentioned that Old Souls can fall prey to the cultural imprinting of trusting Pain over Pleasure. What are some ways that the Older Soul can reduce or remove this imprinting if it is an obstacle? [MEntity] There are many moments when the choice for succumbing to suffering is chosen over the trust in pleasure. [MEntity] There is an addiction in place for many that must be broken by one's most powerful tool: choice. [MEntity] When we say this, we do not mean to say that your worries and concerns will fade, but that the choice away from suffering is the choice that is INCLUSIVE. This means it is okay to worry, and it is okay to be concerned, and it is okay to be stressed, but it is ALSO okay to be patient, to keep trying, to keep creating, to keep looking, to keep loving, to aim for your intentions, etc. [MEntity] What tends to happen when one allows room for both is that the division within is healed, and this wholeness helps bring more cohesive Energy, meaning more recognizable patterns, and thus, more Beauty, more pleasure. [MEntity] Worry all you wish to worry. Wring your hands in concern over the future. Be embarrassed about your past. Fret over your failures. But let yourself laugh, let yourself make a difference, let yourself move forward. [MEntity] These may sound useless platitudes, but we can assure you that any effort to include laughter, empowerment, choice, and movement, even in the worst of scenarios, is far from useless. [MEntity] If you feel that you have chosen Suffering at any point, then let that be included, as well. "Whoops, I chose to suffer again, but that's okay. I can still choose something else along with that. And I can choose again after that." [DandyLIONpuff] I have an inner struggle regarding creative DESIRE that causes a resistance towards action. I will be excited about many mediums ( story writing, music writing, performance) to an equal level that choosing one path seems painful. Am I correct in thinking Essence does not plan the exact medium of the creativity , but only the " vibration" of it? [DandyLIONpuff] if that vibration can be directed towards anything, does it even matter what outer medium is chosen? how does one choose between so many potentials? [MEntity] We remind you that pain, and even fear, is simply information. So if you feel that choosing one over the other is "painful," it is simply information. In cases such as this, that information in not about leaving media of expression behind for the sake of focusing on one, but more about the pain of NOT focusing on one. The distraction is the pain, not the potential. [MEntity] It is painful to be distracted from the focus on the one you have chosen. [MEntity] The pleasure will come when you allow yourself to focus on that choice. The other media will not disappear. [MEntity] They can even float as satellite options for support in that one focus. They need not be left behind, but simply brought into an order that is supportive of the primary focus. [MEntity] For instance, if sculpture becomes the focus, let it be the focus. Give everything to this. Let the existence of your creation snap into form through that medium. But have your paints ready. Have your pen ready. Have your other forms of creativity available. They are not gone, and they do not have to be distractions; they can be supportive. [MEntity] One does not have to cut off one's legs to give strength to his arms. [MEntity] And yes, in the same way that "you" are Essence, no matter what form you choose to take, so are your creations still your creations, no matter what form they take. [susan] We have used the so-called "7" types of centering: ie: The Emotional - Intellectual - Physical - Moving Instinctive - and, Higher Centers namely higher emotional and higher intellectual (we think those are the 7 types) to find pleasure - in rejoining with the 2/3 of c1e7 already cycled off - and, our essence twin - and, guides-guardians etc., is this the right/or wrong usage of learning and utilizing how to work with these 7 centres there is a lot of pleasure found in reconnecting with 'higher levels' of 'yourself' [MEntity] Though we are unclear as to what your question is, we can say that there is no "right" or "wrong" definition of pleasure, and no standard by which any can impose the experience of pleasure. Many gain great pleasure, true pleasure, from the intangible, and many gain true pleasure from the tangible. However, as one's consciousness expands, and one's compassion grows, the definitions of [MEntity] pleasure begin to recognize the responsibility that comes along with true pleasure. [MEntity] But what that pleasure is, is up to you. [MEntity] The pleasures of Manifesting Essence often border on ecstasy. [JamesS] when ever one, try to follow one Passion, Desire, run into Blocks as if "Denied and Pain Follows"Meaning Joy is no longer part of one, Path [MEntity] This questions would require some reformatting for us to understand it. [MEntity] We must conclude here for today, however. [MEntity] Good evening to each of you. [MEntity] Goodbye.
  20. Michael Speaks 121408 [Michael Entity]: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with responses to questioning from Sandy. [sandy]: I would like to ask about concurrents. Do they have identical overleaves? I assume role, casting and age would be the same, is that correct? [Michael Entity]: We will respond to your question after clarifying a differentiation: We clarify because there are three terms we see being used by our students: "simultaneous," "concurrent," and "parallel." Variations of a single incarnation (branching out into "parallels" of dimensions) are usually what we prefer to call "parallel lives." These share a single starting point. "Concurrent" is used to represent various incarnations of one essence in various dimensions and space, but during the same time frame. Variations of Essence incarnating within a relatively close proximity of time, but in separate starting points, we prefer to refer to as "Concurrents." While "Simultaneous" lives is often used interchangeably. With that clarified, Concurrents most often do have a completely different design of Personality, though, of course the Essence dynamics are the same. There are no rules, of course, and sometimes Concurrents might share the same Overleaves design so as to have a similar approach to different geo-cultural contexts within the Physical Plane during a time period. The main emphasis is geographical. Concurrents RARELY live within any proximity to each other, Physically. [sandy]: rarely but not never? [Michael Entity]: Sandy, some Concurrents have crossed paths, but this has usually been devastating or "mind-blowing." [Geraldine]: How are IMs handled when two or more lives are being experienced concurrently -- what happens when one finishes an IM -- does it affect the others? [Michael Entity]: There are two arcs of Internal Monads: those related to the physical, emotional, intellectual development of the Personality, and those related to the evolution of Essence. The Internal Monads for the various Concurrents' Personalities would be independent, but each Concurrent would contribute to the arc of Internal Monads for Essence. [luluaussi]: are concurrents ever aware of one another? what if one concurrent died? [Michael Entity]: Toni, yes, some of our students have Concurrents, each of which are aware of the others, but rarely do they find a way to validate this or even to cross paths. When a Concurrent dies, the experience for remaining Concurrents is unaffected unless the remaining Concurrents have a specific interest and sensitivity to the exiting of a Concurrent. [luluaussi]: what of dreamspace? [Michael Entity]: Most Concurrents do have intimate awareness of each other in "dreamspace," or what we would call the Astral Plane. This is because it is nearly vital to remain aware of each other's projected paths of choice so as not to cross paths. [sandy]: so does this mean that when two channels say the John Doe of history is now John Smith and another says he is now Sue Brown they can both be correct? [Michael Entity]: Sandy, sometimes Concurrents contribute to the lack of sequential timelines for Past Life explorations, yes. Parallels do the same. [sandy]: I was thinking of Mozart, different channels have given different current incarnations as being that essence. Can they both or all be correct? [Michael Entity]: Sandy, sometimes this is so, but more often this is the projection and inaccuracy of the channel. [sandy]: any way to tell? [Michael Entity]: We know of few species who can track the incarnations of one Essence over multiple lives. This seems to be a built-in system of protection, so to speak, so that one lifetime's activities are never imposed upon another lifetime. [sandy]: Thank you Michael. [Michael Entity]: So we would say this is a matter of personal scrutiny and self-validation based on the value the information might have for you. [luluaussi]: Yes Thank you Michael this has been very helpful to me. [Michael Entity]: In species where current lifetimes of past Essence incarnations can be tracked, there is a spirituality in place that allows for the consistency of memories to also transcend the space between lives. In some, this is simply part of the world, but in others, it had a devastating effect during the Mature Soul cycle. [luluaussi]: and if there is a sensitivity, does the remaining Concurrent pick up where the other left off...from the perspective of that concurrent? [Michael Entity]: Toni, no, each Concurrent has its own life, independent from the others. There is no "picking up" necessary. [luluaussi]: I see. [Michael Entity]: NEXT QUESTION: Kathryn [Kathryn41]: Scholars are said to hold experience energies in their bodies that may manifest as physical ailments or problems. What advice would Michael offer for releasing these types of energies (I suspect I am experiencing these problems right now) [Michael Entity]: Our response would be two-fold: Absorbing, Carrying, Processing experiences for a Scholar is so intrinsic that for a Scholar to ask this is almost the same as someone asking, "Essences are said to have bodies when they incarnate to the Physical Plane; what advice is there for alleviating Essence from having a body?" We point this out because it is a valid reality and substance that a Scholar contends with more than other Essences. In other words, it is not your imagination. Scholars not only absorb, carry, and process their own experiences, the experiences of those within observational proximity, but they share the work of being "drop points" for Entity members they may never even have known existed. Scholars are the equivalent of hubs and routers in many ways for the Entity and Cadre. [Kathryn41]: So, I guess I am asking about how to process more effectively [Michael Entity]: The second part of our response would be more specific to your question and that would be that Scholars would do well to create a ritual that allows for them to "upload" or "clear their cache." This can be done by simply sitting, standing, opening the arms, feet apart a bit, and consciously feeling the "LIFT" of energy being released to Essence. The wider this sense of openness, the more likely the effect will be profound and valid. Close the eyes, open the arms, and imagine the flow of release from all extremities moving to and through and out the Heart "up" to Essence. For most Scholars, the "tingle" will be tangible as the release flows. [Ingun]: Like surrender it to Essence? [Michael Entity]: Yes, Ingun, that is correct. The reason this is a valid practice for Scholars is because the Personality often "holds on to" all of the collected energy until it is UNDERSTOOD. And much of what is collected cannot and will not be processed by the Personality. [Kathryn41]: oh yes [Kathryn41]: any recommendations on how often to perform this 'ritual'? [marion]: would this work for other roles as well? [Michael Entity]: Adding to the physical actions of this release, a simple, ecstatic phrase/mantra during the release might be: "I don't have to understand it all." [Kathryn41]: (oooo - it works! I just tried it!) [Ingun]: Well isn't that a way all of us could use, like when we don't understand or can't cope with something ... just give it over to Essence? [Michael Entity]: Kathryn, we would suggest doing this any time you felt the impulse. Once it is done, one might begin to sense when one starts to "fill up" and needs to clear. [Kathryn41]: thank you Michael. That is a real help [Michael Entity]: Ingun and Marion: yes, we would agree. All fragments could do well to update, upload, and release accumulated experiences to Essence. In fact, this would help alleviate the burden on your fellow Scholars for doing it for you. What we described here is not the same thing as "surrender" when one is within a situation one cannot control. This is simply a clearing practice for releasing that which Personality does not have the capacity for processing or is already ready for uploading to Essence. Keep in mind that while Essence does have the capacity for observing and being a part of the most intimate details of your life, it is rather blind without the Personality's openness and sustaining of consciousness. [Kathryn41]: makes a lot of sense [Michael Entity]: Many fragments wait until Astral review during dreams, or between lives, to update Essence. The practice we described can help with keeping that line open to Essence and relieving the Body from unnecessary weights to process. [Kathryn41]: Thank you again [Michael Entity]: For Scholars, it can be, as we said, "I don't have to UNDERSTAND it all." For the Expression Axis it can be "I don't have to SAY/CREATE it all." For the Action Axis, it can be "I don't have to DEFEND/LEAD everything!" And for the Inspirational Axis it might be "I don't have to TEND/HEAL it all!" Or more simply put: "I don't have to Understand/Express/Do/Be it all!" Speaking this during the simple meditation we offered, and speaking it with realization, not defense, can be profound. NEXT QUESTION: TONI [luluaussi]: If I am understanding correctly, the Unites States has shifted into the Mature Soul paradigm. My question relates to Soul Age shifts....how does one best navigate into a new Soul Age....I have been told that, like the US, I am evolving from one age to the next (Mature to Old in this case) and would like to understand how we can transition in the most effective manner .... and not hide in a cave til we get our land legs.... [Michael Entity]: We know of only one way to navigate from one Soul Age to the next and "get your land legs," so to speak, and that is through experience, and the collection of experience AT YOUR OWN PACE. There is no hurry. The "cave" becomes less and less necessary as experience is accumulated, but there are no short cuts. "The cave" of which you speak is a valid sanctuary for review and processing of experiences so that when one "peeks out" again, there is confidence. [luluaussi]: what I feel is a precipice...to fall or soar and that is creating a sense of vertigo..... [luluaussi]: both inner world and outer as this country transitions too [Michael Entity]: If one feels that one is hiding, then one would want to explore the self-karmic story that might be related to the pressure one feels in that space between "land legs" and "cave." Transiting a Soul AGE, let alone a Level, is inherently an "unknown," or "precipice." [luluaussi]: is it like womb to walking? [luluaussi]: how would one explore "self-karmic" stories ... Sagely speaking [Michael Entity]: In using an evolutionary theme as an analogy, the Womb is more like the Infant Soul Age; Potty Training is Baby Soul Age; Walking is Young; Driving is Mature; Flying is Old. [luluaussi]: so am learning to fly?.... told myself that isn't dream once.... [Michael Entity]: Exploring Self-karmic stories is best done through examining the push/pull of the experience; the polarities, which are usually quite obvious. Often these are found in the "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" of an issue. [luluaussi]: I see. [Michael Entity]: "Should/But Don't" or "Shouldn't/But Do" [luluaussi]: OK [Michael Entity]: The resolution is often then found in the BUT part of the equation. [luluaussi]: Wow this is sooooo helpful [Michael Entity]: The BUT is often yours; the SHOULDS are someone else's. [Kathryn41]: ah [Michael Entity]: The resolution comes when you embrace your BUT, which then allows clearer room for your SHOULD/N'T, which can then be acted upon, or released as necessary to your choice. We have been lacking in puns for a while, and believe this will help in bring some levity to this equation. [luluaussi]: guess I really need to examine my response to those SHOULDS and stop letting myself get hogtied with BUT? [Michael Entity]: Your statement would be one we agree with, Toni. NEXT QUESTION: Ingun [Ingun]: Kundalini is a word and topic that is attached with so many “pictures” or labels or beliefs for instance coming from the belief that the body is an illusion. I also understand that the Kundalini is a physical energy and can have different effects depending on which chakra or channels in the body it is running through or one intentionally runs it through. I would like Michael to share some information about the Kundalini energy and clear out some misinformation. [luluaussi]: Cool.Thanks this has been most helpful! [Michael Entity]: That is a rather large topic, but we will respond briefly here, and invite further discussion with this as a specific topic at some point. [Ingun]: Yes, some brief information will do well. [Michael Entity]: What is called "Kundalini" energy is what we would call Higher Moving Energy; this is the energy that flows to, from, and through the Higher Moving Center and what might be called the Second Chakra/Sacral Chakra. While all Higher Centers are accessible to the Body and Personality, the Higher Moving is the most readily accessible, as it is "rooted deeper" in the Body. Emphasizing study and consciousness on this particular Energy is Good Work, but is as susceptible to as many misconceptions and misdirections as any other activity for a group or individual. We would simply say that emphasis on this Energy would do well to be tempered with awareness of the Higher Emotional and Higher Intellectual Centers/Energies as well. This Kundalini Energy is just that: Energy. But Energy has both a positive and a negative pole, which could be described as Beauty and Chaos, respectively. What helps Energy to move toward Beauty are the structures and awareness that are a part of Truth and Love. In other words, our brief response would be that Energy, Truth, and Love are the building blocks of your Universe, personally and universally, and one cannot be explored without the inclusion of the others. We have much more to say about this, but will explore this more fully in other discussions. NEXT QUESTION: Ladislaus [Ingun]: This is just perfect. Thank you. [Ladislaus]: Michael, I have a seemingly frivolous question. Humans like to party. To drink, dance, socialize, throwing balls and masquerades, playing party games, go to cocktail parties, discos, formal dinners, etc. From whence comes this party-impulse? Is is just a marginal break from more heavy and important things, a way of "taking a rest" and recuperate? Or is is in itself something central and important? That is my question. [Michael Entity]: As the soul evolves, it continues to have access to all levels and ages accumulated by that soul. One of the first realms of experience gained by Essence is the realm of dance, altered states, celebration, lack of inhibition, and tribal rituals. At whatever Soul Age one is, this level of self is drawn from the Infant Soul aspects of your history and experience. In this same way, the Older souls draw from the Baby Soul Age experiences to sustain civility and law and order; the Young Soul Age to be able to HAVE and contribute and compete; the Mature Soul Age for sensitive empathy and activism and self-awareness. The older one's soul gets, the more one begins to utilizing these levels and ages appropriate to current choices, circumstances, and contexts. It is Good Work for the Older Soul to let down his or her hair and dance with the Infant Soul inside, so to speak. [luluaussi]: en-joy, so to speak/ [Michael Entity]: And it is true that, for some, this is a method for "taking a rest" and "recuperating," because this is a return to the nurturing force from which you spring, finding yourself back in the safety of the womb, figuratively speaking, and embracing the validity of your right to BE. The Right to feeling REAL. For some, it can be used as an escape, of course, but it is also a valid direction for embracing the deepest sense of presence one can have as a Physical Being. We have never been ones to encourage the denial of this level of your experience. It makes little sense to us to deny the very foundation upon which every other important structure and meaning is built. To return to that part of you is to check in on your foundations and correct any shifts. CHAT MUST END... REPAIRMEN HERE! Sorry!
  21. Michael Speaks Open Floor May 23, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley 12:25:25 PM Luciana: how a person can let go when it became very attached to someone? MEntity: One of the most effective ways for one to "let go" of anything or anyone is "to let it BE." Often what one means when one seeks to "let go" is to alter the investment in a person or thing to be what one expected it to be, not what it IS. MEntity: To "let go," one must "let BE," which means that you do not have to sever attachments or connections, but learn how to embrace and allow someone or something to be what it is, or what he or she wishes to be on his or her own terms. MEntity: Your attachments are often not related to the individual at all, but to the ideas projected or infused into that person. MEntity: If you are grieving the loss of a person to death or to the change or ending of a relationship, then you must allow the grieving process, which is not the same thing as attachment. MEntity: The grieving process is one's process of accepting a difficult or unwanted truth. MEntity: One does not have to detach from a person as a means to allow grief. MEntity: But one does have to LET THE TRUTH BE as a means of "letting go." MEntity: So when you seek to "let go," instead of focusing on how to detach, ask yourself what the truth is, and do the work of embracing or allowing that truth. Then you will know what to do from there. MEntity: Of course, this topic is not one that can be so easily summed up in a quick response, but this response can be a place to start. 12:37:27 PM Shazam: I understand that to the essence, all incarnations happen simultaneously. Now does this mean, if I were to make contact with any of my future or past lives, that the personality to whom I am contacting would be the same age as I am at the moment of contact? To say if I were to effect my past life when I am twenty, I would be effecting a 20 year old past life? MEntity: It is a misnomer to say that all incarnations happen simultaneously, because they actually do not. They are not as linear in progression as one would expect, but they are also not happening "all at once." MEntity: Think of the "all at once" in this way: MEntity: If you are baking cookies, you still go through the process of mixing the batter, forming the dough, organizing the dough, baking the dough, pulling out the dough, cooling the end product, etc. It could easily be described that you "made all of those cookies 'at once," but there was a progression involved within that "at once." MEntity: This is similar to how lifetimes work for Essence (and how original Casting works). MEntity: So while it could be said that many lifetimes are "happening at once," there is still an awesome order to the progression that is not much different from how one may bake a batch of cookies and consider those to be done "all at once." MEntity: For Essence, the "at once" comes because time is very different on that scale, but each lifetime is its own form and shape within a moment of time that is organized as distinct from every other lifetime. MEntity: For you, as Personality, baking your batch of cookies from your greater perspective, it is easy for you to say that you baked all of those cookies at once, but only because that is how you experience that frame of time. The reality will still be true that each cookie was formed from a set of steps that were distinct and organized in time. MEntity: When you speak of your "future" or "past" lives, it may be the equivalent of an oven rack of cookies, then, if you will. MEntity: The "future" and "past" are only relative to the individual cookie, not to the cookie maker. MEntity: With that being said, we can respond to your question: Your efforts to communicate or sense or draw in from another life will not be relative to your physical age. You as a 20 year old can contact "you" in another life as a 50 year old. Physical age is not a linking factor. MEntity: In fact, one of the only, and one of the strongest factors of connection across lives is only in terms of related experiences. MEntity: If you are struggling with an illness at 50 in one life and struggling with an illness at 20 in another life, then that struggle can be a linking factor. Age will be irrelevant. 12:52:53 PM Maureen: Michael, I asked this question in 2011. “How do you see any of our senses, as Roles in Essence, being expanded on in the future - whether through evolution, intervention, etc. – that might surprise us?” Maureen: As part of your answer you said: “In terms of the evolved senses as they relate to Roles, the descriptions would remain the same, but they may manifest as the following ways: …Priests/Orientation, as evolved to allow for easy location of "portals" that include time and space anomalies; and Kings/Relationality, or the capacity for harnessing, stabilizing, and using the time/space anomalies.” Maureen: Would you elaborate on how Priests and Kings would/might work with their senses, Orientation and Relationality, on time and space anomalies in the future? Maureen: If there is not enough time please provide an answer for the Priest Role, only, and I’ll ask about the King Role at another session MEntity: Within 25 to 100 years, the stabilization of access to, and creation of, "wormholes" is highly likely. As that likelihood is realized, so will the necessity for certain senses to evolve. This is because the nature of access and use of increasing control over time and space will require those senses for the phenomena to be used effectively and as a tool. MEntity: The concept of quantum tunneling, wormholes, "folding" of space/time are not science fiction, but anticipation for valid use of natural occurrences. MEntity: When a Role evolves its inherent senses, that sense becomes accessible to all other Roles through the Overleaves. MEntity: So when the King and Priest evolve toward the senses as we describe them, they are "unlocked" for every other Role to access through variations on the Overleaves as they correspond to the Roles/Axes. MEntity: We point this out because it will not just be Kings and Priests in science working with this leap in understanding and stabilization, but any Role interested in a lifetime working with those senses. MEntity: Those senses, then, would become tools for mapping out a new layer of reality that is already in place, but not fully understood or known or utilized. MEntity: Those senses are not necessarily limited to the Roles or the Roles who choose overleaves to access those senses, but can extend into tools that represent those same senses so that "anyone" can access that sense. MEntity: Our point being that once the senses are unlocked, they can be, eventually, be used by everyone in some way. MEntity: And the focus of these particular senses are looking at how to make use of the malleable fabric of time/space. MEntity: If you think your Internet access is amazing, you may be quite shocked at what all of this implies. 01:07:18 PM ViP: "Input" has been defined by you, through Troy, as: "a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends." ViP: From this, I assume that perceptions from the five senses of the body (assuming there are only 5, though of course there are probably more) reach Essence via an input. ViP: Can you give a brief idea of how Senses and Inputs and Chakras/Centers are related to one another and work together in order to convey sense impressions to a person's Essence? ViP: (I am quite sure this will require a topic-level response in itself, so if you could give a brief beginning of a response to point further directions for questions, that would be great.) ViP: (Also, I was referring to the basic 5 senses, ie, touch, smell, hearing, etc, not the ones that Maureen just referred to - but please cover anything you consider relevant.) MEntity: To accommodate this format for our exchange, our response will be in terms of shortcut analogies to help convey as much as possible: MEntity: First, consider how you process your own day. MEntity: Your 5 senses are alive and active at all times. MEntity: However, unless you reach for something and seek to TOUCH/FEEL it, you probably do not notice your clothing on your skin, the temperature of the air, the shoes on your feet, etc. For Touch to be meaningful, it tends to require intention or attention. MEntity: You are touching all day, but unless that touch grabs your attention or is directed by intention, the touch is passively processed and unnoticed. MEntity: Your brain is registering ALL of it, and knows that your butt is on a chair, but "you" do not particularly notice that your butt is on a chair, unless the butt starts hurting or it is a particularly comfortable seat. MEntity: So in terms of INPUT, the senses are fed into that input based on ATTENTION or INTENTION. MEntity: When the sensory input is ignited by attention or intention, then you are AWARE. MEntity: And this is the same way it works for Essence in terms of Input. MEntity: Everything is being funneled into your Inputs at all times and "dumped" into a reservoir for reference and processing and review, but when something in funneled through that was based on ATTENTION or INTENTION, then it activates the Awareness. MEntity: Everything is being funneled into your Inputs at all times and "dumped" into a reservoir for reference and processing and review, but when something in funneled through that was based on ATTENTION or INTENTION, then it activates the Awareness. MEntity: The 5 senses described here are not specific to an Input, but are a net that is cast for any possible moment of ATTENTION or INTENTION, and then the experience is funneled into the appropriate input where Awareness, Processing, and Comprehension is activated for Essence. MEntity: The more one has experiences that draw one's Attention, or where one is guided by active Intention, the greater the use of the Inputs and the greater the clarity of access to the life the Essence has. MEntity: The more one has experiences that draw one's Attention, or where one is guided by active Intention, the greater the use of the Inputs and the greater the clarity of access to the life the Essence has. MEntity: Chakras would work in a similar way. In the context of this question, at least, they can be understood as a net that is cast for all dimensions of the self to monitor for Attention or Intention. MEntity: As you know, we can always say more on a subject, but we think this may be helpful for now. 01:23:48 PM Janet: There is a set of books called 'The Ra Material', purported to be authored by 'Ra, an humble messenger of the Law of One'. The books contain quite a bit of material that correlates with the Michael material. Both the Ra books and some of the material purported to be from the entity known as Germane speak of spiritual paths referred to as service to others and service to self. Who or what is Ra, and is there any validity to the idea of a spiritual path known as service to self? MEntity: Ra refers to the 8th Manifestation of Infinite Soul approximately 8000 years ago. The material that is shared now is from some fragments who were directly impressed and moved by that Manifestation. However, it is an interpretation and is based on access to the Essence of the individual/s relaying the information, and not on direct access to what was known as Ra. MEntity: One can see the same from those who claim to carry forth further teachings of Jesus, for instance. It is not the teaching of the Infinite Soul, but an interpretation based on what the original teaching meant or means to the individual. The same has happened even more recently by those touched by Seth and Jane Roberts who now falsely claim to speak on their behalf. MEntity: So it is not that the teachings are untrue, but that the teachings are their own. Maureen: The Course In Miracles was apparently channeling "Jesus". MEntity: However, in the case of Ra, the base idea is valid in that he taught of the value of the Higher Moving Center and its function, and as the fragment was a King, he was able to teach the ramifications of serving the self vs serving of others. MEntity: Servers learn the truth of accelerated evolution quite early due to their inclination toward the serving of others. It is the "fastest" path of evolution. However, Servers get hung up near the end because then they must learn how to receive service and how to gain power through themselves, not through others. MEntity: Kings, on the other hand, are often quite slow to grasp the appeal of serving others, since they can so easily prompt others to serve them. This makes for long arcs of evolution across and within lifetimes. MEntity: But in much the same way that a revelation eventually comes to a Server that "to serve others" requires a circuit that allows the self to be served, the King eventually realizes that the self is benefited in much healthier ways through their leadership being a service to others. Janet: That makes a lot of sense. Thank you Michael. MEntity: So this fragment was an important pick for the Infinite Soul at the time. MEntity: Both Service to Self and Service to Other are valid paths, and both must be understood and implemented at some point in every fragment's evolution before cycling off. MEntity: They are not contradictory terms. 01:42:16 PM MEntity: We must conclude here for today. We know we did not tend to the entire queue, but we trust we will continue our exchanges with you again soon. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
  22. Michael Speaks: The Darkness Among Us December, 26, 2015 Hello to everyone. We are here, now. We can begin. We have been asked to discuss how one might navigate what seems to be the overwhelming "darkness" that can come from personal and collective events in your world. First, we will say that nothing we will say today will change the world, but what we can share with you today is a way to change how you see the world, and more importantly, how you see yourself IN that world. What we share today can help you to not only change how you see the world, how you see yourself in that world, but how you act within those parameters that are meaningful and practical to you. It is fair to describe the effects and forces in the world as "darkness," if that term is intended to describe a force or experience of limitation that challenges your force or experience of "light," or choice. In other words, if choice = light, and interference of choice = darkness, then the terms are fair. However, if the terms are synonymous with "good" and "evil," then the terms are useless. For there are forces that interfere with choice, and there are consequences that are experienced because of that interference, but these can rarely be simplified into terms such as good and evil, but the terms light and darkness are neutral. For many, the day (light) allows far more freedom and choice than the night (darkness), but neither of these would be considered good or evil, but simply more useful parts of each day and quite natural. We share this distinction because one of the first things one must do if one seeks clarity, effectiveness, and peace while navigating the forces of the world, one must resolve the apparent conflict between these forces. Understanding that night is not competing with the day, that the night does not swallow the day, and that the day can never truly destroy the night frees you from one of the first layers of intensity and stress that the navigation of life can bring. When you were younger souls, you may have thrown rocks at the moon to stop an eclipse, but you know now that you are safe, that there is a natural cycle, that you are not losing your Sun. As you grow older, the fear of an eclipse moves from the sky to your political and social arenas. You fear that the darkness is taking over the light, and your reactions are about as effective as throwing rocks at the moon. The truth is that the world will never be free of darkness, or "bad" people, or karma, or inconveniences, or destructive forces. But equal to this truth is that the world would be in no better position if there were no more nights, no more cycles, no more interferences to the broad light of day. What we shared here is the broadest context with which you can understand the dance between light and dark, between the forces that seem to benefit and the forces that seem to harm. You must have this greater context as a means to then focus more specifically on the details. Understanding this broader context does not mean permitting harm, but it does allow you to reduce the broad notion that all darkness is harmful. It is also helpful to remember that not all light is beneficial. Both darkness and light are neutral, and the effects, consequences, and experiences of these are dependent upon relativity, intensity, and proximity. In other words: your world would burn if closer to the Sun... Consideration of Relativity, Intensity, and Proximity leads us to the next important layer to explore in regard to navigating life/darkness/light. As you grow older, your empathy evolves, rises, expands, and encompasses more and more of life. Empathy is vital for evolution of consciousness. Without it, you do not evolve. It is impossible not to evolve one's empathy, but one can certainly stall or halt it for a while. Hand in hand with Empathy comes Sensitivity. Keep in mind that we say "hand in hand." Empathy and Sensitivity are different things, but they tend to be drawn to one another as tools for those who seek the path. Before one begins to evolve in one's Empathy, one tends to increase one's Sensitivity. Sensitivity tends to come from experience, and a great deal of experience that fuels Sensitivity is wounding. This is one of the reasons even an older soul will draw the line and halt or stall in one's increasing capacity for Empathy. This is because Empathy begins to equate Sensitivity equating Wounding. In other words, it hurts to care. What the older soul must, eventually, grasp is that caring FEELS GOOD. Empathy FEELS GOOD. Compassion FEELS GOOD. Sensitivity does not always feel good, but it is the tool used down the paths of Compassion, Empathy, and Caring. Returning to the concepts of Relativity, Intensity, and Proximity, it can change everything for you to remember that IF IT IS NOT HAPPENING TO YOU, THEN YOUR EMPATHY, CARING, and COMPASSION are not there to make you feel bad about or for others, but to motivate you to help. If you feel bad about events in the world, you care, your compassion is there, and your empathy is intact, but if you do nothing, or feel you can do nothing, or you make it about your sensitivity/wounding, then you will feel bad. 99% of what one feels overwhelmed by, upset by, angered by, frustrated with, etc. is not actually happening to you. This is not to say that you are not a part of the picture, or that you are not affected by events and forces well beyond your personal space, but that you are in a position that allows for greater choice and action than you realize or choose to implement. If it is not happening directly to you, then you can let your sensitivity lead you to Empathy, Compassion, and Caring in ways that feel good. And by "feel good" we mean that you can either make a difference, or acknowledge that you cannot make a difference. If you can make a difference, then make a difference. If you cannot, then you must trust those who can, will. For example: If you are overwhelmed by the mentality being fueled by the Young King known as Donald Trump, you can make a difference with your educated vote, or if you cannot vote, then you can encourage those who can vote to cast an educated vote, or you can focus on the trust you must extend to those caught up in the experience who are closer to it. If you are concerned about climate change and its long-term and short-term effects, then you have more immediate choices and actions you can take to participate in helping to reverse or alleviate the momentum of this force. If you are upset by the murder of a family by a father who "snapped," there is very little you can do to have prevented or helped with that scenario. If you are upset by a recent bombing that has occurred, or a recent mass shooting, you cannot always make a difference to have prevented these, but you must then decide if you can help, how you can help. And if you cannot help, you trust. If it is not happening directly to you, then you must consider if you can help, and if you cannot, then you must trust. And, finally: you cannot help everyone, every time. But you can always care. It becomes much easier to care, even if you cannot help, when you have helped where and when you could help. The world is neither overrun by darkness or fighting to sustain its light, but you are learning to care, and how to care without being consumed by your own wounding. When a Higher Moving Center or Moving Center are involved in a year's Overleaves, or in an event or person's overleaves, then the tendency for Martyrdom and Impatience can run high. The dance between Victimhood and Intolerance can be quite painful. There can tend to be more collective commiseration of frustrating world when these Centers/Chief Features are involved. When collective commiseration displaces collective help, the overwhelm and anxiety is perpetuated. Rather than add to the collective commiseration, you can harness your caring and share ways for others to help, if there are ways to help. When you share solutions, you increase the probability for your caring, and someone else's caring, to make a difference. If you do not know of any solutions, then asking for solutions can be as helpful as offering solutions. Commiseration can serve to bring people together, but if it ends with only commiseration, then the darkness of the world is not the concern of these individuals. It is their personal wounding that they seek to heal. If you find that you simply commiserate without any effort to help, then you are probably looking for help for yourself. And this can be quite a relief to understand about yourself. Because then you can get on with the more honest search for help, rather than the gamble of hope for healing through the pain of others. When you realize that it is your own wounding you seek to heal, you can then allow that healing. Not only does the world then begin to be brighter, but your load becomes lighter as you share it with honesty. So if something "bad" is happening directly to you, in close proximity, and with intensity, then you must ask for and allow help. We have covered a great range of concepts for our students to consider when pondering the overwhelming darkness that can seem to be in the world. Our intent is to help you to move away from throwing rocks at the moon, and knowing when and how you can make a difference. Because you do make a difference, even when you choose not to make a difference. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ************ Yes, Brian. Brian: What techniques or exercises might we use to expand upon having sensitivity, empathy, and understanding? BE ALIVE. If you are alive, you are already immersed in technique and exercise for expanding your sensitivity, empathy, and understanding. However, we will say that as with every other "muscle" that is increased in strength, there can be pain along the way. Those who actively exercise tend to recognize that there is "good" pain. In our teaching, we tend to differentiate Friction from Resistance. What most experience as "bad" pain is Resistance. "Good" pain is Friction. Friction is the range that includes challenges, difficulties, obstacles, and the coming together of forces against one another to create an experience. Friction tends to build upon itself, bring expansion and growth, evolution, fulfillment, and pleasure. If one can begin to consider the difference between Friction in life and the Resistance to life, then one can change how one expands in sensitivity, empathy, and understanding. You cannot avoid Friction, and you are almost always the solution to Resistance. Navigating your life in terms of gaining as much as you can from your experiences vs resisting them with anger, frustration, and evasion can be the difference between the imbalance of darkness over light, and the comforting balance between the two. Most of our students do not need to learn how to be Sensitive, but what to do with that Sensitivity. And we will say that Sensitivity is an invitation to make a difference, if you can, and if you cannot, then let it matter that you care. Let it be enough. There are other areas of sensitivity where you can make a difference. You can always care, even if you cannot help. Next, Rosario. Rosario: Hello Michael. I think your answer to Brian's question applies also to mine: how would be the process from "darkness" to "light" in children/people recruited by ISIS militants? First, those who have been recruited would need to want to move away from that "darkness" and into "light." If they have been recruited through brainwashing by choice, then they have determined that there are solutions to their pain in what you describe as "darkness." When someone is brainwashed by choice, the only thing that can make a difference for that individual tends to be in the presentation of even more effective relief from their pain. In those cases, education, information, opportunity, etc. tend to be the means by which one can move from a darker place to a lighter place, if you will. When someone is recruited through mindfuck, then intervention tends to be necessary. Mindfuck is karmic and compelling, so even when intervention is offered, the person may reject the help. You may or may not have the means through which to help those who are recruited through brainwashing or mindfuck, but both require clear paths of information, addressing of pain and needs, and options for solutions. Those who are recruited entirely by conscious choice fall into the brainwashing category in terms of what would be necessary for help in expanding their choices and inviting different actions from them. Rosario: I see. Keep in mind that many who are labeled as "terrorists" are often just crude versions or reflections of greater superpowers who have become more refined at the same behaviors and actions in the world. The line is rarely distinct in the greater scheme of things. Next, Sevemanalo Sevemanalo: I'm wondering how what you've said today on light/darkness, can be applied to social justice work such as anti-racism work or youth rights? It can be applied in terms of doing what you can if you are able to help "from the outside," and allowing help if you are on "the inside." If you are directly affected by racism, then you must allow help, and if you are not directly affected by racism, but care, then you can help by asking how you can help, and listening to what help is needed. In cases where racism is addressed, it is vital that the request for help is seen as a strength, and that the offer of help is formed through listening to the requests. Next, PaulyBoy PaulyBoy: Hi Michael Entity. Most of us probably have some family or extended family member who is wrapped up in "Trump Mentality." To quote from earlier: "If you are overwhelmed by the mentality being fueled by the Young King known as Donald Trump, you can make a difference with your educated vote, or if you cannot vote, then you can encourage those who can vote to cast an educated vote, or you can focus on the trust you must extend to those caught up in the experience who are closer to it." How might we approach "encouraging those who can vote to cast an educated vote" when topics of "religion and politics" are often off the table when talking with family at gatherings? How might we approach this in a way where we might actually "get through" to some folks, and not just alienate them? Is this a matter or just letting them "make their mistakes" or "having their experiences and consequences?" and there's only so much we can do? Or do we have to let "them" come to "us," like you have to wait for the question to be asked? Wearing political-messaging t-shirts seems likely to provoke a fight without much of a discussion... I seem to be having some trouble with the question, so I hope the question is coming through, even if it somewhat conflicted and confused inside of me. "Gentleness, healing, song, and story" just came to me, and "be an example." I'm not sure if that was you or me or something else there. Maybe I just answered my own question for me. None the less, I am curious what your extended thoughts are on "reaching out" to folks in the Trump Mentality. Thanks! You can only invite education and choice; you cannot force or impose these things. We have learned this, ourselves, by working with all of you over the past 5,000 years. If you can have a conversation, then have the conversation. If you cannot, then you cannot. PaulyBoy: That is so simple it makes sense, even if I'm making a funny face and cracking up But the most effective way you can communicate in those instances is to A) know your facts B) reduce your reactions, and C) to offer the insight, not presume it should already have been gained. If you cannot pull off all three of these, your effectiveness diminishes relative to the strength of these three keys. PaulyBoy: Ooo, that last one really stuck out (not presume it should already have been gained. We are losing focus through Troy tonight and must conclude here. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
  23. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 011308 [Michael Entity] : Hello to everyone. We are here. We've been asked to expand on the Overleaves in a way that might add more "dimension" and context for the practical use of the Overleaves, and we can do so. What we have shared about the Overleaves, in general, is "just the beginning." What we will share with you today is how these Overleaves "show up" in the basic contexts of your daily existence. What we will share is a way to be more aware of the Overleaves in a way that can be observed and then that overleaf can be more consciously utilized in other contexts where it might not be so obvious. We will start with the Goal. If you have ever wanted to observe your Goal in effect most clearly, this Overleaf is most obvious in the context of your EXTERNAL LIFE. By this we mean that this overleaf is what you use as your motivation behind all of your choices that are in relation to the external world, to life, in general. Within that context, it could be said that the Goal is the Overleaf that describes what you reach out for in the world in terms of experience, or more precisely, the Goal describes what you wish to bring back with you from your experiences. It does not ultimately describe HOW, or IF, but it does describe WHAT. For instance, if your Goal is Acceptance, this means any experience that is taken from your day can be traced back to that particular Goal and you would do well to see how this describes WHAT you sought in your choices throughout the day from the general contexts of your external life. It could be said, then, that the Goal resonates to the Moving Center and the Action Axis. We share this axis resonance with you as a foundation for future information we have to share, as well, because we will eventually go through each Goal (and mode, attitude, etc.) and what each overleaf means in light of this information. We also share these resonances, not only for future reference, but for your further exploration on your own as you draw connections and cross-references throughout these resonances. We will also include here that the Goal could be said to be your method of entrance into the world in terms of PROJECTS. In this case, we mean "projects" as a key term to help simplify the general point of your motivation for reaching out into the world of experience in the first place. Next, we will share about the Mode. In terms of the Mode, then, it could be said that the Mode is your entrance into your world of RELATIONSHIPS. If you want to fully understand how your Mode manifests, it can most easily be seen in the context of Relationships, or more specifically, in the world of INTIMACY. In this case, we would define "intimacy" as being your method of resonance to something beyond you. This is why the Mode is often described as "how you go about reaching the goal," because your relationship to experience (your Goal) is still a relationship, which is then described by your Mode. The Modes resonate to the Emotional Center and the Inspiration Axis. The Mode resonating to the Emotional Center implies accurately that Modes are about PERCEPTIONS, which greatly affect your interpretation of OTHER in relationships; Perceptions being the Positive Pole of the Emotional Center. Furthermore, the Modes' resonance to the Inspiration Axis will help shed light on the dynamic required for INSPIRATION and how that works for each of you, which we will discuss in future sessions about the Overleaves. It should be noted, as well, that we do not limit these Overleaves' resonance to the Lower Centers, but include the Higher Centers, as well, though we wish to focus on the Lower only for the sake of tangibility and practicality, not because the Higher Centers are excluded. In other words, it could be said that the MODES are how one might eventually manifest LOVE in the life, or the Higher Emotional Center. In addition, the GOAL might be how one could be said to manifest BEAUTY, or Energy, in the life, as it resonates to the Higher Moving Center. By "beauty" and "energy," in this case, we mean that one brings about a sense of pattern to experiences and begins to see this pattern as perfect and beautiful, not as random and chaotic, or imposed. Next we will speak of the Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be your entrance into the world of COMMUNICATION. If one were to see how this most displays itself, it is usually most prominent in the realm of SOCIALIZING, or any realm of exchanging information. The Overleaf describes how one communicates to others through the primary personal philosophy one has chosen for the life. It also describes how one LISTENS, or hears, in terms of Communication, as it is quite difficult to communicate outside of your personal philosophical stance. In other words, if one is an Idealist, it could be said that Communication is primarly going to lean toward the philosophy of IMPROVEMENT. It does not mean that one cannot exchange outside of that philosophy, but that when an Idealist is fully present, then communication is bent toward that philosophy, steering all expression and reception through the Ideal. The Attitudes, then, resonate to the Intellectual Center, and the Expression Axis. By association, this also means that the Attitudes describe how one communicates his or her TRUTH, as the Attitudes resonate to the Higher Intellectual Center, as well. It could be said then that all communication passes through this overleaf as a means to help evolve, question, develop, transform, update, etc. the concepts of Truth for the life. In that respect, one can see how this Overleaf can tend to be the most obvious in social situations, as that context can quite often bring to light how one expresses his truth, hides it, or protects it. Next, we will speak of the Role. The Role could be said to resonate to your INTERNAL LIFE. This is who you are "at the end of the day," when alone, and "catching up with yourself." This is the part of you used to make sense of "it all." This is the part of you that digests and stores the experiences, the communications, the intimacies of the day, year, and life. Remember that ESSENCE and ROLE are two very distinct terms, though they are used interchangeably, easily. This is why we speak in terms of "Role in Essence," as the Role is an overleaf that the Essence chose for the cycle of lifetimes. The Role resonates to the Instinctive Center and the Assimillative Axis as this is the part that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It could be said to be the Overleaf that asks at the end of the day, "what does all of this mean to me? how does all of this contribute to my evolution? why did I make the choices I made?" This is also the very primary level from which ALL of your choices are made, whether in Projects, Intimacy, or Communication. The Role is from where you draw your consciousness as it grows from Experience, Relationships, and Socializing. And so it could be said that this is also the part of you that you bring TO your day; the constantly-refreshed version of you for the new set of experiences explored within the next day, month, year, and even life. Differentiating these contexts and how each Overleaf is showcased in these contexts can help bring about an awareness that one might not have had, before, in terms of grasping how his overleaves work in the day-to-day. Upon exploring these contexts, you can also look at where one might have "issues" or how one might resolve "issues" related to that particular context of life. For instance, if one is missing Intimacy within the life, one would look to the Mode for insights into how one might find resolution to the issues connected to intimacy and relationships. If one is feeling a lack of participation in the world-at-large, so to speak, and feels a lack of energy, an increase of frustration in the life, looking to the Goal can help in bringing insights into how to bring one back into a conscious participation again. If one finds oneself rejecting or uncomfortable in social situations, it could be of help to explore the primary truths, the Attitude, as a starting point for what motivates this division. We could go on with many different paths of examples, but we believe this will be a good starting point to offer within the time frame available today through this channel. We will include here that we have more to say in terms of how the Body Type, Centering, and Soul Age play into this, but these will be discussed in future sessions. [AnnH] : I am having trouble understanding how the assimilation axis overleaves operate in this context. Ex. my mode is observation: How does clarity vs. surveillance work in terms of relationships? [Michael Entity] : It could be said that, in terms of relationships, you are divided from the other, observing from a distance, removed, never truly intimate, but "surveilling" when functioning from the negative pole. In the positive pole, it could be said that you are able to drop the division between you and other and truly grasp his, her, or it's presence in relation to you. In other words, you allow OTHER to be seen and included in your vision, your clarity, rather than through a metaphoric plate glass window. When in Surveillance, yes, you can smile and nod and even make "googly eyes" through that window, but Other is never truly able to be seen clearly, to be present for you, to be within reach of true intimacy, because you are "keeping your eye on him, her, it," which, ironically, does not allow for as much clarity as one might think, because without allowing the Other to be fully present, you do not have all of the information available. For simplistic purposes, it could be said that Observation Mode is either at-a-distance, or up close (negative, and positive poles, respectively). We remind you that the entire spectrum described by an Overleaf is available to you and while the positive poles "feel" better most of the time, and allow for manifestation of Essence, it is also valid to utilize the negative poles as part of your experiences of a life as Personality. [Kathryn41] : How is casting incorporated into this scenario? Is it more reflective of 'essence's nature apart from the role and other overleaves? Does it even count as an overleaf, or is it more of the innate nature of essence? [Michael Entity] : We would not consider "casting" to be an Overleaf, but you are correct in seeing this as more reflective of an innate nature of Essence. Casting describes a mathematical relationship of your Essence relative to other Essences, and this does affect the Essence (and by extension, the Role) greatly, but not within the contexts we have shared today. However, we will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored within your days, and we will get to that in future discussions, if it chosen for pursuit. As a quick response, we will say here that the Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. We already know this is a topic of interest and intend to delve into this with those of you who are interested. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  24. ENERGY REPORTJanuary 20162016 OVERLEAVESROLE: Server (emphasized all year)CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year)GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar)MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun)ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep)CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec)JANUARY begins the shift into a new Role and Center for the year, and the initial introduction into the Goal for the year. The Role and Center will be undercurrents throughout the year, and while the Goal (and all overleaves for the year) are currents throughout the year, the Goal is emphasized mostly in January through March. This sets the tone for the year, if you will. This is a Server year. This means that sensitivity is going to run higher than usual and this can be met with recoil, reaction, and resentment, or met with impulses to help, to reach out, to care and nurture that which seems to be in most need at the moment. A Server year can feel overwhelming even when approached positively because it is a year where NEEDS come to the surface more than usual. Wants are set aside and Needs come to your attention. Your own Needs and the Needs of others. It is a good time for reviewing the Nine Needs that every person is responsible for upholding for himself or herself. Others can help in supporting or challenging those Needs, but only you can truly provide them for yourself. We will further discuss the Nine Needs with our students if this is requested.When there is a year in which Need is emphasized, it is important to consider your resources. If you cannot give, you cannot give. This is an important consideration. Give when you can, and give what you can, but know your limits. This limitation is not a shame, nor is it necessary to be enforced with defenses. It is simply honest that is important to communicate. When you need help, it is just as important to understand that not everyone can or will give. If you do not have responses to your needs around you, it okay to look elsewhere. It is okay to keep looking. It is okay to keep asking for the help. Keep in mind that if you find that responses are perpetually saying “no” or not responding, it may be that you are the one you need to ask and the one who needs to give. It is often the case that when one expects solutions personal needs to come from others, but finds that the asking for help pushes people further away, it can be a reflection that you are the one who is not doing the work of providing for your needs. This is not always the case, but is often the case. You are quite often your own best and immediate resource of help, support, and kindness. This is not to emphasize separation or isolation. It is a means of nurturing your own reserves and resources so that you can return to being a giver.The Moving Center for this year should be a fairly smooth transition from the Higher Moving/Moving Center of the previous year, but with a sharp plunge into physicality. A Higher Moving Center year tends to focus on larger patterns and instances of sexual and spiritual resonance, whereas the Moving Center tends to focus on details of “tighter” patterns and instances of physical harmonies or discord. In a Higher Moving Center year one can “float” above the patterns unfolding “below,” but in a Moving Center year you may find yourself “right in the middle” of intensity, activity, discord or bliss. Issues of the body, health, weather, material well-being all tend to come into focus and intensify in demand for attention, relief, revitalizing, reconsideration, recalibration, resolution, etc. A Moving Center year brings patterns that “bump into each other” in ways that can bring surprising unions and shocking collisions in any of the above contexts. In Higher Moving Center years large groups of fragments tend to exit together, but in a Moving Center year there tends to be a disproportionately high exit of individuals. In other words, disasters or accidents can tend to be common scenarios for large groups to exit in a Higher Moving Center year, but in an Moving Center year it is separate individuals in separate lives and with no apparent connections, but seemingly one after another after another. Higher Moving and Moving Center years are popular for deaths.With the Goal of Discrimination coming into focus, the initial wave of energy would likely be from the Negative Pole that is REJECTION. In other words, most will not like the beginning of this year. January will not be looked upon as delightful or a “good start.” This is not true, but it may feel this way.Discrimination is a Goal that aims for one to learn better how to choose by learning how to say NO. The Positive Pole is REFINEMENT or Sophistication while the Negative Pole is REJECTION. Rejection is a way to avoid choosing by saying no to everything. Refinement is the confidence and honesty to say no when you mean no, so that you can feel comfortable saying yes.In a year where Discrimination is the Goal, there tends to be a process of introduction through Rejection and then an eventual Refinement. The year will tend to bring one up against all things that one has tended to reject in some way and that has not been explored for nuance and variation. These are things that you simply have put into the category of NO. You may not want to look at these things, to experience these things, to revisit these things, to be touched by these things, but they are likely things that will not go away. You will have avoided dealing with them by simply rejecting them. If you are finding your year starting out with some strong elements NO, you may be inviting yourself to look closer at what you have rejected and find the nuance, beauty, possibility, or peace. If that is the case, you can still say no, but you will know if you mean it or if you are simply avoiding responsibility.We will discuss more on Needs and Refinement as the season unfolds.DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate):January 10 - 15 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - a reunion of parallels linking together similar parallels but where fragments were living versus having died. For most who die within the next 3 months, it is final closure of all of their parallels.January 20 - 25 -- ENERGY SHIFT - RELIEF - A shift in energy may come for many of our students of this time to bring some kind of relief, release, a catching of breath, some rest, energy, burst of creativity, socializing, etc. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JANUARY:YOU ARE NEVER NOT CHOOSING - Rejection is a choice. It is an attempt to avoid choice, but it is a choice. And choices have consequences and effects. To confidently say no is not rejection. To say no in defense against choosing is problematic.YOU CANNOT UN-EXIST - Death may come to be a prominent issue for many of our students to process in these days and months ahead. We will talk more about this in our live chats with you, but it can be helpful to remember that death is not meant to eclipse a life. It is a part of life. There is little difference between life and death for either the Personality or Essence except in that whichever one is “in” tends to get the priority of importance. When you are “dead” it is exciting to process a life and plan a dive back into life. When you are alive, it is exciting to consider your immortality and your extra-dimensional selves. Death and Life are two sides of EXISTENCE. You exist. You cannot un-exist. No one you know can un-exist. You will continue to love, and find even more ways and whys to love. Letting people live is to let them exist, and letting people die is to let them exist. This understanding will not replace grief, but it can be a part of the healing that returns you to focus on life when death visits around you.
