  1. Hands Across Memory is a memory matching game for one or more players. The goal is to match all the hands across pairs in an arrangement. A Hands Across pair is a pair of two cards of the same overleaf that is on the same axis, but opposite aspects (for example, an ordinal inspiration goal and a cardinal inspiration goal). Overleaves on the Assimilation axis have no opposites, and so instead pair with Assimilation axis cards from any other overleaf. Note: The Overleaf Playing Card deck comes with a special card that shows all the hands across pairs for easy reference. Setup Select two overleaves (for example, Goal and Mode) and separate all cards of those overleaves (14 cards total) from the rest of the deck. Set the deck aside and shuffle the 14 cards. Lay the cards out to form a column of three cards, two columns of four cards, and another column of three cards. Gameplay Begin the game by turning over one of the cards and then turning over a second card. If the cards form a hands-across pair, leave them face up. If not, flip both cards back over. Continue in this way until all cards are matched. Modifications For a greater challenge, the player may use four, six, or all eight overleaves, forming arrangements of 28, 42, and 56 cards respectively. For a multiplayer game, pairs are removed when found (rather than left face up) and placed next to the player to keep score. The player with the most pairs at the end wins. Hands Across Memory.m4v
  2. What is déjà vu?

    [Excerpt from Member Gratitude Event: March 2016] Maureen: Would you tell us a little more about déjà vu episodes. What causes them? Why do they occur?, etc. MEntity: There are primarily two reasons for this experience, though we could elaborate further in continued exchanges on the topic. Both reasons are a function of memory. In the more practical and most common sense, it is a "hiccup" in the recording of a current experience. Your body and brain have taken in the experience and recorded it *before* your consciousness has registered the memory. When it "plays back," it is playing back in what might be experienced as two layers (or more). Here is a quite literal and simplistic example: You walk into a room. Your mind is "elsewhere." Your body and brain register the walking into the room. Your mind "returns" and plays this memory back immediately. It is superimposed on the present input and feels as if it is a bizarre memory, but it is actually a memory recorded only seconds before. This is most common among those who are distracted, distressed, panicked, in pain, worried, anxious, in creative processes, etc. The second form of Deja Vu is more relevant to the "mysterious" memories that arise relative to experiences that transcend the current life or local memory. These are called up from the Instinctive Center and triggered by any number of cues. These tend to last longer in duration and tend to trigger more profound philosophical inner dialog than the local deja vu. In both instances they are simply synchronized moments of memory. One is a replay of an immediate moment and the other is a replay from beyond the immediate moment. There is no more significance to these than any other form of memory. Sometimes these are random, and sometimes they are relevant, and sometimes they are pleasantly nostalgic or exciting, or they are processes of sadness and healing.
  3. 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.
  4. Michael Speaks -- "Imagination, and What is it for?" December 11, 2011 Troy Tolley, Channel Start: 12:57 PM 12/11/2011 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We have always enjoyed that our students are rather "rowdy." It is a good match with us, despite our seemingly stolid approach to sharing our teaching. We understand the subject to be IMAGINATION, and What It Is For. We will share what we can on this, and aim for it to be useful in understanding this often-misunderstood process. Though we have shared some in the past about Imagination, we have not shared enough with which to build upon in this exchange, so we will speak to this subject anew. Imagination is a powerful tool of Sentience that exists in every known scenario while in a body. There are no circumstances of great pleasure or great suffering that does not allow for Imagination. Imagination exists as a kind of frequency into which all Sentience can tune, if you will, but also generate. Imagination exists as a result of Sentience, and Sentience exists as a result of Imagination. Everything exists as a result of Imagination. And Imagination exists as a result of everything. In short, Imagination IS Tao. If any one of you wondered what Tao "is like," it is that part of you that Imagines. If you wondered what your "spark" was like at the core of your Essence, it is Imagination. And by extension, your Imagination is Essence, as well. And by further extension, your Imagination is YOU. We share this rather amorphous and aphorismic introduction because it is valid that Imagination permeates everything, and emits from everything, in ways that literally help to perpetuate the universe. This is one of the reasons many teachings teach that the world is "illusion." Therefore, in terms of Imagination then, every existing thing is "illusion." Therefore, it is silly to presume that because it is Imagination that it must therefore be ignored, transcended, avoided, denied, etc., because one does so, one only trades one "illusion" for another. Trading one illusion for another that is "better" is like keeping chlorine on one side of the pool. The only way that life gets "better," particularly while in the Physical Plane, is through participation. All other paths are stalling, which are valid, but stalled. "Participation" means tending to that which was Imagined, or taking responsibility. Imagination is used to FORM, INTERPRET, EXPERIENCE, and COMPREHEND, which are Imagination in Motion, Intellect, Emotion, and Assimilation, respectively. In the same way that Imagination is TAO, it is also CHOICE. Therefore, one could say that Imagination is used for Forming Choice, Interpreting Choice, Experiencing Choice, or Comprehending Choice, while Choice, itself, has its influence on each, i.e., you can Choose how to Form a Choice. Imagination is generated from three natural resources within your existence: The Past, Present, and Future. "The Now" is the whole that is the sum of the parts - Past, Present, and Future, and "the Now" is different from the Present (for this discussion, at least). The use of Memory (the past) to form, interpret, experience, or comprehend the Past, Present, or Future is REPRODUCTIVE imagination. Reproductive Imagination is Sensory-based, and usually relative and relevant to the Body, or Moving Center. It could be said, then, that Reproductive Imagination arises from, and/or influences Action, Form, Memory, and the Goal. Reproductive Imagination ranges in use from memory to crafts to recognition to procreation to routine and to the nurturing of the Body. A reason Goals are associated with Reproductive Imagination is because scenarios must be formed, interpreted, and experienced over and over again for a Goal to be pursued. The use of The Present to Form, Interpret, Experience, or Comprehend the Past, Present, or Future is CREATIVE Imagination. Creative Imagination arises from, and/or influences Inspiration (emotion), Experience, Perception, and the Mode. Creative Imagination ranges in use from ideas, to art, to problem solving, possibilities, and healing. A reason Modes are associated with Creative Imagination is because Inspiration is always formed, interpreted, and experienced through Relationships, within and without. The use of the Future to Form, Interpret, Experience, or Comprehend to Past, Present, or Future is INVOLUNTARY Imagination. Involuntary Imagination arises from, and/or influences Expression (intellect), Interpretation, Beliefs (philosophies), and the Attitude. Involuntary Creativity ranges in use across fear, defense, reaction, illness, pathologies, depression, dreams, anticipation, anxiousness. A reason Attitudes are associated with Involuntary Imagination is because one's Expression is naturally formed, interpreted, and experienced because of one's Philosophies (beliefs), within and without. Though these are nicely organized in ways that align with the Axes, they are not static associations in such a way that one could relate a Role to one of these forms of Imagination. In other words, all Sages and Artisans are not locked to, or rooted in the Involuntary Imagination. That being said, there is truth to the tendency for use of certain types of Imagination, which can be approximated not only by the Role, but by the dominance of an Axis in one's Overleaves. The Overleaves, and the use of them over many lifetimes, expands every fragment's capacity for use of all forms of Imagination, though all forms were there from "the beginning," as it is a frequency that is stored or accessed through the Instinctive Center. This frequency is one's indirect line to the Akashic Plane, as it is the frequency that is used to update/upload to your Essence, through your Essence, and to its own Causal Body for the updating of records. Each of these can be positive or negative in their uses to the individual. And each will inherently trigger and overlap the others. This information acts as a kind of map for how to understand from what angle you are drawing your Imagination, and what parts of you it may be generating from, or influencing, so that you give rise to ever greater spectrum of choices for how, who, where, and why you are. You DO "create" your "reality" in the most fundamental and personal sense, even if not all of "reality" is your personal creation. Your Imagination uses your memory, perceptions, and beliefs. And, your memory, perceptions, and beliefs use Imagination to form, interpret, experience, and comprehend your Reality. ***FLOOR IS NOW OPEN FOR QUESTIONS*** Maureen: If a person wishes to have a different outcome in “whatever” – how might they use their Imagination to make this happen MEntity: One would first want to assess to what degree one has control over the outcome of that "whatever" in terms of Form, Interpretation, Experience, or Comprehension, and this would most likely come from the Creative Imagination. If one cannot control an actual outcome (form), one may still have the capacity for controlling the interpretation of that outcome to best suit his needs or wants; or he may be able to control his experience so that disappointment can be minimized, or joy can be generated; or control his comprehension so that sense can be made of the results. We will say, however, that "wishing" for a different outcome would have far less effect than actual participation in the process. Maureen: perhaps I am thinking of the use of Visualization as it relates to Imagination MEntity: Understanding from where that "wishing" is generated can also help. Is it a result of Reproductive Imagination? Is he trying to recreate? Is it a result of Creative Imagination? Is he trying to visualize and hold an intention? Is it a result of Involuntary Imagination, generated from fear and defense against the alternative outcomes? Knowing from where it comes can sometimes help to point to other resources. For instance, if it is Creative, then the outcome may require other people to help, and Relationships can be explored for even more Imagination. For more Inspiration, etc. As Emotions are also how one experiences Time, Creative Imagination may also point to the fact that it is a matter of patience, as well. carolyn: Is the frequency stored/accessed through instinctive centre, the same as the essence frequency, and does this frequency work through seven levels, of the three types of imagination. MEntity: The Frequency that we offer as insight into your Essence is Essence's particular "vibration point" from within Sentience as it is relative to your Sentience. In other words: all of Sentience is its own spectrum from 1 - 100. Human Sentience may be at 30 in that spectrum, for example. That point of 30 within the full spectrum of 100 is then delineated into its own spectrum from 1 - 100. Imagination then could be said to be the equivalent of all Sentience, and Humans are one point in that spectrum of Imagination. Your Frequency describes your Essence's speed at which Imagination is accessed or generated. To answer your question: yes, the Frequency that is your Sentience, and the specific Frequency with which your Essence participates within that, are stored/accessed in the Instinctive Center. While we have no delineated process of 7 Levels for how Frequency uses Imagination, our information on the 7 Methods of Choice can shed light on that process, indirectly. Kathryn41: How much impact are we able to effect on the physical plane reality as a result of 'imagination' as individuals, or is this a co-imagined reality and we are only really able to effect 'big' changes with a more collective agreement of that imagined reality MEntity: The level of impact one has on shared reality is the extent to which one actively participates in it. Your Physical reality, at least in terms of FORM, are results of Actions (Goals). Physical reality is dense, so working together in time and space is important, as results that land here can remain here for a very long time and space. The more removed one is from that process, the more confined the time and space, and the less influence on the greater, collective time and space. Your Emotional reality, at least in terms of Experience, are results of Perception (Mode). The more present and active one is in relationships, the more impact and influence there is. Kathryn41: So this is why young souls are so often able to effect big changes, because many at this soul level are very actively involved/participating in the shared 'reality'? MEntity: Your Intellectual reality, at least in terms of Interpretation, are results of Beliefs (Attitude). The more present and clear one is in his philosophies about life, the more influence and impact he tends to have on those for himself. That would be valid, Kathryn. All fragments exist within all of these "realities" (there are 9, all together), but tend to pick and choose, based on many factors, where the impact and influence will most likely be. Keep in mind, however, that "thoughts are things," so the work that one does on his Involuntary Imagination, the more it contributes to the capacity for soothing others from their own fears, prejudices, reactions, etc. Involuntary Imagination tends toward fear, reaction, and protection, and this is a good thing in situations where danger is actually present, but when it is simply a difference in philosophies, for instance, then fear, reaction, and protection are often exacerbating, contributing to a reality that is often unwanted. So one does have influence and impact to some degree across all of the realities and through all of the paths of Imagination. EVERYTHING counts, if you will. [Bobby] You've stated before that I used imaginative access to my own Instinctive Center when I briefly heard (phonetically) "Siffin". Is this indicative of the fact that I am Moving Centered and how I tend to use imagination? If this is too personal of a question then feel free to skip it. I can ask it in a different session. MEntity: That is a valid indication, as it could be said to be the Reproductive Imagination. We realize we have shared a collection of terms that may have to be organized in a way that our students can then make more sense of them, and begin to build a better understanding of this profound tool. But this is a start. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.
  5. Channel: Troy Tolley April 10, 2011 Michael Speaks: Nine Realities MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with the requested topic of "9 Realities." First we will define "reality" here as "realm or dimension of experience." The term "reality" is always used literally in terms of a dimension that is apparently separate from another, but these realities often overlap or exist one within another, and there is nothing static about them. Each of you, regardless of where you "exist" as you know reality, will exist 9 versions of that Reality, and so it might be more accurate to call these "dimensions;" you exist within 9 Dimensions of any given Reality, so to speak. However, your Primary Reality is usually dictated by which of these Dimensions your focus is present, at any given time, or within any given space. There are actually, technically, only 3 Realities, but each of these has 3 Dimensions, or angles, from which that Reality is experienced, and so it is fair to describe these in terms of 9, as each is an exploration of a facet of the self. When we use a system of 9, we are usually describing a part of our teaching that is interpreting one's exploration of facets of the self. That system of 9 is usually built from a stack of 3's. As we discuss with you these variations on Reality and their corresponding Dimensions, we are describing a major part of the structure that is responsible for generating alternate universes, or parallel realities. Parallel Realities converge and diverge based upon the degree to which these 9 Realities are in harmony within the self, within your community, and within your species. As Parallel Realities "spin off" or branch off from the SELF, from COMMUNITIES, and from the Species. For today, we will speak in more direct emphases on the Self as it relates to these Dimensions, but from that, one may extrapolate how this spreads to the community and global levels. As we explore these Dimensions and Realities, we suggest not assigning to them any numerical value, at least in terms of progression, because these are more like Facets, and not steps. The first Reality and its 3 Dimensions we will discuss is the Physical Reality. This is the most-solid of all Realities, of course, and is an anchor for playing out and exploring all other Realities. All other Realities must be out of sync for a Physical Reality NOT to be shared. Each Reality's Dimensions are a form of positive, negative, and neutral (or assimilative) experiences/Dimensions of that Reality. Each Reality is polarized by Positive and Negative attributes that could be described in terms of WANTS and NEEDS. We remind you that "positive" and "negative" are never used in our teaching to indicate anything more than a difference between broader focus and acute focus, or Cardinal and Ordinal, or creative and focused, etc. The Poles describe the spectrum, and the greatest understanding that can from the use of the Poles as a form of navigation is that the more one moves toward the Positive Pole, the more that BOTH Poles are included. That is because the Positive is Inclusive and the Negative is Exclusive, both for very practical functions. Each Reality will then have a ground for resolution, or Assimilation, where Positive and Negative play out. For your Physical Reality, the Negative Reality, or the DIMENSION OF NEEDS is described by your CRAVINGS. For your Physical Reality, the Positive Reality, or the DIMENSION OF PHYSICAL WANTS is described by your DESIRES. For your Physical Reality, your Assimilative Reality, or the DIMENSION OF RESOLVE is in your PHYSICAL HEALTH. These 3 Dimensions are three very different versions of Physical Reality. In other words, every fragment will have a Dimension of Reality that is dictated/created by his Cravings, and one dictated/created by his Desires, and both of these are reflected in his Health. There will never NOT be those 3 Dimensions of Physical Reality for any fragment. Physical Reality, then, can become a powerful factor for with whom one shares his or her Physical Space and Time, as shared Dimensions of Craving, Health, and Desires become important factors for sharing that space and time harmoniously. If one shares Physical Space and Time with any other, then there are AT LEAST shared Cravings and/or Desires, and how these are managed is played out in the collective Health. The next bundle of Dimensions that create Reality could be called the Emotional Reality. Fragments standing in the same room at the same time may have very different Emotional Realities. Again, this Reality is explored through Positive, Negative, and Neutral facets that exist at all times. Again, this Reality is polarized by Wants and Needs. In this case, the Dimension of Want would be your INTENTIONAL DIMENSION, and the Dimension of Need would be your DIMENSION OF LONGING. These Dimensions are then played out, or resolved, in the DIMENSION OF PERCEPTION/RELATIONSHIPS. It could be said that the Assimilative, or meeting ground for the Polar Dimensions of each Reality are always reflected in the Health, so that in the Emotional Reality it is played out in the Health of Relationships, or Perception. There is never a fragment who exists without each an Intentional, a Longing, and a Relationship Dimension to his or her Emotional Reality. The next Reality then is the Intellectual Reality. Again, this Reality is polarized by Dimensions of Want and Need, which are played out or resolved. The Intellectual Reality includes the Dimension of Ideals, the Dimension of Explanations, and resolved in the Dimension of Comprehension or Insight, which might be more accurately described as the Dimension of Philosophy. There will always be for each fragment a Dimension of Intellectual Reality that is generated from the Ideal, one that is generated from the Explained, and one that is the meeting ground of both of these in the Health of one's Personal Philosophy. We will elaborate by defining some of the terms we used: Desire is that which is Wanted Physically, and is usually motivated by Pleasure. Cravings are that which are Physically Needed, and usually motivated by Survival, or Healing. Intention is that which is brought to any relationship to generate that which is Wanted Emotionally, and is usually motivated by The creation of Meaning. Longing in that which is brought to any relationship that which is Needed Emotionally, and is usually motivated by the lack of Meaning, or fulfillment. Ideals describe the reality generated from what is Wanted Intellectually, and usually motivated by Affection, or collective improvements. Explanations describe the reality that is generated from what is Needed Intellectually, and is usually motivated by Momentum, or that which is presumed to be known. It may also be described as motivated by one's Prejudices. To the degree that one's Physical Reality and its Dimensions are healthy is the easily measured by the consistency and nature to which that fragment LAUGHS. To the degree that one's Emotional Reality and its Dimensions are healthy is easily measured by the degree to which that fragment is HAPPY. To the degree that one's Intellectual Reality and its Dimensions are healthy is easily measured by the degree to which one is at PEACE, or PEACEFUL. We will pause here for questions that may be relevant to the topic. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ************** [Brian_W_] Regarding the emotional dimension, you mentioned that it has the Negative, Positive, and Neutral Poles. Is there a technique similar to the "hands-across" technique to be able to bring the dimensional pole into the positive? No, because the term "pole" here is used to describe the 3 Dimensions of each Reality that are rather static and existing at all times, so there is no need for moving from one to the other, but that each would be tended to, understood, and regarded as valid Realities for you. [Brian_W_] Okay, I misunderstood how "pole" was applied here. Thank you The same could be said of every Overleaf, as well. Each Pole and its resolution exist at all times, and while an emphasis might be in one Pole or another, each Pole will continue to exist for each person and each overleaf. So while one may move toward the Positive Pole of an Overleaf, this merely means that he is now INCLUDING the entire spectrum of that Overleaf. The same could be said of the Dimensions of Reality: the more one focuses on his Positive Dimension, the more the Negative is managed and healthy. For instance, if one tends to his Wants, it is almost always the case that his Needs are then already taken care of. Or, in a more specific example, if one would like to focus on his Dimension of Desire, he will be including his Dimension of Craving. Or, if one were to focus on his Dimension of Ideals, he would automatically be including his Dimension of Explanations. However, if one were to be focused on the Dimension of Cravings, it is very difficult to tend to the Dimension of Desire. To the degree that you, as an individual, tend to your "higher" Dimensions, or your Positive Pole Dimensions, the greater the Laughter, Happiness, and Peace your experience of Reality becomes. However, this often means emphasizing the Negative Poles, or the "lower" Dimensions of Reality, first, which can then lead to the "higher." Regardless of where one's emphasis or focus is, these 9 Realities or Dimensions will exist, and either be aligned with others' or not. [Oscar] Do the three Realities have any correlation to the Centering, e.g. Moving, Emotional, Intellectual? Only in terminology, for convenience. However, your Centering would exist within each of these Dimensions. [Geraldine] This might apply more to alternate or parallel realities. I know many who are going through memory loss, and not all for the same apparent reasons. As one goes through major mindset changes of any of the three Realities, does this alter one's current reality enough to "forget" parts of one's previous realities? Or, secondarily, is this part of the cause of memory loss? Memory is quite directly linked to and affected by the management of these Dimensions and Realities, because the Personality's memory is biological, and when a parallel is generated, it is because the Intellectual and Emotional Dimensions have moved into such a polarized state that they branch off a Physical Dimensions, which means a new body, so to speak. In either case of Divergence or Convergence, this "new" copy is always different enough to affect the line of (or lack of) memory. However, even within a given set of Realities, or 9 Dimensions, the memory can be affected by the various ways one manages his or her Dimensions. Every fragment will tend to have an emphasis of Dimension in each Reality, so that either the Wants or Desires are active in the consciousness for creation. If one has been emphasizing Cravings, Longings, and Explanations or Prejudices, he will alter his memory of that time when he has moved his emphases into Desire, Intentions, and Ideals. Because the Negative Poles are so acute in focus, when the focus shifts into a broadness, that which was so important or distracting or demanding might be completely lost to memory or even become romanticized to a great degree. It is not that the linear history is lost, in this case, but that the pleasure, meaning, and affection have been extracted and the symbols are no longer necessary. [Geraldine] In fact that happened to me when I finished my 5th IM. On a more practical level, if one is having problems remembering where he has placed his keys, or remembering a phone number, this would simply be a matter of blood flow to the brain and its exercise by the user. We will continue, then. The information shared here can be used in practical ways when one looks at his life through these dimensions, and when others are seen as potentially having very different Realities and Dimensions than those that are yours, or of importance to you. Understanding that the DECISIONS you make to fulfill your Desires leads to moments of CHOICE that either build upon your Reality, branch off your Reality, or join with other Realities. Understanding that the DECISIONS you make to fulfill your Cravings leads to CHOICES that create, branch, or merge Realities, can help you to tend to those smaller steps that lead to larger, pivotal experiences. DECISIONS are the steps to CHOICES, and Choices generate your Realities. And by "generate," we mean Build Upon, Branch, or Merge. Understanding that you can be in a group of people who are in the same room at that same time may not mean that each of you are in the same Intellectual or Emotional Reality, despite your shared Physical Reality. The greater your Peace and Happiness, the greater your capacity to adapt to and embrace variations of Realities, however. We are using "peace" and "happiness" to describe the confidence and trust that is within an individual or group, regardless of influences or factors, and not to describe a romanticized, syrupy, or "new agey" conclusive state. In other words, the greater your capacity to embrace all of YOUR OWN DIMENSIONS, the greater your capacity to embrace others', instead of shooting yourself into another parallel, to speak in humorous terms. These Dimensions, then, can be explored through other aspects of our Teaching, such as what have come to be understood as "the Nine Needs," or "The Nine Pillars," etc. Look to the health of your Body, your Heart/relationships, and your Mind/Philosophies for indications as to which Reality Set is important for your focus. ALL Realities and Dimensions are benefited by the attention given to any one Dimension that is most discordant. We will conclude here, and regardless of where and when you are in Reality, we will meet up with you again. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  6. Ask Michael - October 5, 2014

    Ask Michael Live Chat October 5, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley 12:22:07 PM ClaireC: Hello, Michael. There have been studies conducted on the power of group prayer and meditation that would indicate that sick people who are prayed/meditated for have higher recovery and healing rates than those who do not receive prayers. Can you explain what is happening here, are the results of the studies incorrect or is it truly beneficial to pray/meditate for someone who is seriously ill? MEntity: The context of the kind of "prayer" and "meditation" has a profound effect upon the outcome of such studies. First, if there are religious elements involved, the effects are often quite contrary to beneficial. If the recipient is aware of the prayer, there can tend to resignation to some idea that some power will save the day. This resignation is different from the surrender that one might have to the trust of medical care or nurturing. Resignation is a disconnect from the life force. So religious prayer is often more harmful than beneficial. MEntity: If the fragment is not aware of the prayer, it has little effect. ClaireC: How about TM? ClaireC: That's not religious. MEntity: When "prayer" and "meditation" is moved outside of the realm of religious resignation to a higher power for saving the day, then there can come to be some benefit. If the recipient is aware of the intent of another's prayer or meditation, the Personality may allow in this subtle networking of nurture. MEntity: This subtle networking will never override the individual's capacity for healing, nor usurp it, or impose healing, but the individual can harness that nurturing for the sake of healing. ClaireC: I'm thinking more in terms of the patient "receiving" healing energy. MEntity: If the individual is not aware of the intent of these more beneficial prayers or meditations, there is little effect. MEntity: The patient never truly passively "receives" healing as much is the patient lets the network of nurture become a kind of safety net of strength and support. MEntity: In other words, kind words of encouragement directly to the fragment vs informing the fragment that kind thoughts and feelings are similar. MEntity: What happens when there is benefit is that there is Cording, and the Cords (energetic bonds of resonance/communication among fragments' chakras) act as a safety net, but not as miracles. MEntity: It should be noted that one cannot cause illness or harm from "prayer" or "meditation" either. MEntity: If one's well-being were so easily affected by the thoughts and feelings of others, many would not live long. 12:42:31 PM cfalde: Diane posted a channeling a few years ago about improving eyesight in later years. You stated in there that those born with poor eyesight were beyond that discussion. Please briefly discuss. MEntity: Some eye conditions are a result of poor light, poor muscle strength, improper use, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, overuse, repetitive conditions, etc. so these can often be helped and even reversed. However, those with genetic conditions may not be so easily helped with mere vitamins and exercise. It would be the equivalent of saying that a person born with no leg could grow a leg just by taking a vitamin or dancing more. It does not work like that. cfalde: True. MEntity: However, there are improvements to altering even the effects of one's genetics, and as these improve and one has access to the capacity for altering these, then one is not confined by those genetics. MEntity: In that case, one could seek out competent professionals who are offering benefits of altering the effects of genetics. At this point, there are few options, but they are improving. MEntity: Replacements of parts of the eyes seems to be the most common possibility at this point. cfalde: lasik and other therapies too. MEntity: Correct. 12:50:46 PM Janet: When a nexus occurs and parallels merge, what is the effect on the memory of a personality who existed in both parallels? Are any memories lost or changed due to the merging of parallels? Or would the merged personality retain memories of experiences from all original parallels? MEntity: Janet, all memories remain intact, but depending on the more immediate necessity and environment, one will transpose over the other. In other words, whichever memories serve the new timeline best will come to the surface. However, there are times that may come later when a conflicting/contradictory memory will come up, and this can be perplexing. It is not a "perfect" system because all memories need to be accessible for the variations of choices. Janet: Oh that’s what I thought — that choice was still key. MEntity: If one set were to be wiped out, it would not be fair to that parallel Personality, but because these remain intact to some great degree, they can come to be bizarre artifacts in memory. MEntity: Some illnesses of memory, such as dementia, can bring up a multitude of parallel memories that seem random and conflicting. MEntity: But are, in fact, often quite "real." 12:58:29 PM Maureen: I've been wondering recently whether or not one can have true (not blind or naïve) acceptance, without "understanding" (...of whatever). Many of us, not just those of us with the Goal of Acceptance, would like to learn how to best, or to better, move towards more Acceptance (+pole Agape). Also, I’ve been noticing how it feels to accept or to not accept – when I experience “acceptance” it feels more expansive and open-ended while non-acceptance feels more conclusive or closed. Your comments please. MEntity: There are 9 Circles of Acceptance that help one to understand the variations in how one learns to Accept. The outermost, or 9th Circle, is the most anonymous and "blind," with a sense of allowance for differences, distance, difficult variations and obstacles to intimacy. For example, you do not have to know every fragment from a culture you have no sense of resonance with to accept that these are "people, too." MEntity: As the Circles grow "closer" to the center where you are, then the importance of intimacy, resonance, and understanding grows. MEntity: It is not that it grows so much as it simply becomes more personal. MEntity: It is still intimacy, understanding, and resonance when acceptance comes in the 9th Circle, as well, but it is from the broadest grounds of empathy you have. MEntity: You can accept that people who are vastly different, far, and stranger to you are still Human and that you are related in such a way because you know you are Human and that you are also strange, distant, and different from others, too. MEntity: The Positive Pole of Agape for Acceptance translates into an "affection." MEntity: One can only have affection for that which is accepted. MEntity: All fragments outside of your 9th Circle will not have a sense of affection about them or for them. MEntity: Every fragment can only truly accept into the 1st Circle one to three fragments at a time, but this does not mean one is not accepting. There are 8 other Circles where one arranges one's capacity for acceptance. MEntity: For those with or without the Goal of Acceptance, the aim for Agape/Affection is always relevant. To do so, one would always seek to choose any possibility of empathy over defense. MEntity: Choosing empathy does not mean condoning, and choosing empathy does not mean putting someone in your closer circles of acceptance. But even if that person can be put into your 9th Circle, you are doing well. 01:19:56 PM brian_: Hello Michael, could you please give a larger description of the Solar body type nature? MEntity: The Solar Body Type Nature is as equally consuming as it is giving. It is a delicate economy of taking and giving. There is a kind of transparency in the Solar Body Type that prompts it to find and fulfill identity in or through those who "orbit" about her or him. MEntity: They can be experienced as a constant source of energy, enthusiasm, and delight or as a volatile and overwhelming heat that must remain distanced. MEntity: Aside from the Lunar Body Types, these are the most immature and underdeveloped of the Body Types, in that there is a kind of dependency upon other Body Types for the sense of position and place. MEntity: The Solar Nature can be as child-like and innocent as it can be childish and temperamental. MEntity: Because the Solar Body Type can be so attractive as a source of energy and enthusiasm, they can also be subject to great projection and expectation by others. MEntity: The Solar Nature tends not to be able to hide very well in a life because of the equation of giving and taking in relationships, events, experiences, etc. There would likely always be those who expect of the Solar Nature, and the Solar Nature may find she or he expects of others. MEntity: Because of the rather consuming nature of Solar, its presence is often rather minimal in any combination, only serving as an Active/Positive redirecting of energies for variation of combining planetary influences. 01:40:15 PM Kurtis: Hi Michael, I'd like further elaboration of the Saturnine Nature please, much like last time with Venusian and Jovial and this time with Solar. thanks MEntity: The Saturnine Body Type is the only other Active/Positive body type, and as such is quite focused on rather optimistic, broad visions of DOING. It is correlated with the Priest for this reason. Those with a Saturnine Body Type in Nature will tend uphold grand visions against which all of existence is measured. This generates within them a rather painful streak of demanding perfectionism. MEntity: Saturnine Nature often almost desperately craves a sense of vertical movement, growth, change, evolution, and so even when the life is without challenge, there is a constant barrage of interpretation that there is challenge. MEntity: Even if the body is not tall in terms of a Saturnine Appearance, a Saturnian Nature will bring a sense of "tallness" to the perspective of the individual so that there seems to always be a towering ideal that is carried above the heads of everyone around the body. MEntity: The Saturn Nature can easily fall into a kind of sanctimonious stance in the life, if not careful to consider if his or her challenges are valid. MEntity: The Saturn Nature will always do well to determine if he or she is being challenged, or if he or she is simply being challenging. 01:58:21 PM MikeClev: Could you please expand our knowledge about Saturnian as Health Body type? Thanks. MEntity: The Saturnine Health aspect of the Body Type comes in relation to the anterior pituitary, which, like the Nature, can be regulator of growth, or stunter of growth, or an accelerator of growth. MEntity: In its healthy states, Saturn helps the body to manage all functions related to growth, including reproduction. This gives the body a great range of endurance and longevity due to this management of energy and hormones as they are used by the body. MEntity: In its unhealthy states, Saturn can move out of regulation and into inhibition or overproduction, which leads to issues of instability in the infrastructure of strength in the body. This can show up as high levels of stress and even bizarre and distracting sexual urges and compulsions to help "burn off" the energy. MEntity: Unhealthy Saturnians tend to carry about a kind of "seething" range of unexpressed anger that can wreak havoc on the body. MEntity: In healthy states, it can be one of the most productive body types of all, as it can endure great treks of focus in the use of the intellect, body, and/or emotions. MEntity: But because of that durability, the Saturnine Health can end up having to learn how to say no, how to be clear, and own his or her strengths AND weaknesses. MEntity: Or there can come to be cumulative consequences on the health. 02:07:45 PM Carlotamaria: Hi Michael, I would like to ask if you could explain the Love Monad as completion of a Heart Link. MEntity: The Love Monad can take as many lifetimes as it takes and is under no restriction for timing. For the Love Monad to be completed, the fragments involved will revisit in symbolic (and something literal) terms every Monad that has led up to the Love Monad. So the fragments will revisit the Master/Slave, Slovenly/Meticulous, Matedness, Parent/Child, Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved, etc. MEntity: These passages through the ingredients of experiences that are leading toward full, unconditional love, would come as arguments, misunderstanding, impulses, compulses, all moving the relationship through toward a full embrace of the best and worst of one another, as well as the self in relation to that person. MEntity: Eventually, the Monad comes to a close when each has come to realize that there is nothing that "matters" more than the truth of the other's existence. MEntity: In other words, all of those experiences came and went, but each of you stayed as a consistent element of existence, and this is truer than the temporary dichotomy of any version of your relationship. MEntity: We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
