  1. Hey everyone, I want to share something that may seem obvious to some of you but may be just the thing that helps snap someone out of the shock and depression resulting from this recent election. The American Presidential election threw me off in ways that I could never have known would affect me so deeply. Without realizing it, I found I could not pull myself up and out of this shock. I am not a pessimistic or depressed person, but I was spiralling, deeper and deeper into a darkness I have never felt in my life before and it scared me. I have never felt like this before. I've had some really rough experiences in my life, too, and never have I felt this claustrophobic anger, helplessness, and darkness. I tried so hard to make sense of it and to snap out of it and it would not go away. In my most-recent visit to my Drx, I asked her if I should get a professional opinion and diagnosis for Depression. She asked me to describe my symptoms and as I went through them, she asked me if this was happening since the election. She said that she has yet to have a patient visit her since the election who has not described the same symptoms of anxiety and depression. She said that even she who is not prone to these things has the same symptoms of depression and anxiety and insomnia and even night terrors. She said she has never been awakened from deep sleep by anxiety in her life, but she has been struggling with this since the election. She explained to me that this "Trump Effect" has rocked the psychological and psychiatric community to the point that formal studies have been done and continue to be performed. She said that these studies are concluding that the symptoms that are so pervasive in those affected by the election are actually signs of strong mental health and high intelligence. She explained that the "Trump Effect" comes from the blow to our psyche when facing a barrage of lies, deceit, and false information that you can't process fast enough or do anything to counter. She said that if you feel depressed, anxious, and affected by this recent election then it means you are sane, intelligent, and stable. The symptoms are "good signs," even if they are overwhelming. The depression, anxiety, overwhelm, etc. come as a result of suddenly losing all trust in your senses, in your ability to make sense of things, creating a huge wedge within yourself that spreads into an exhausting fracturing of the self. This is a known tactic of dictators and tyrants as a way to break down the security and stability of a society from the inside, out. For some reason, just knowing this helped tremendously. I felt a huge weight lifting and a sense of control coming back to me. It mattered to me to know that my symptoms indicated something healthy in me and not something broken. Trump has turned reality on its head through lies, deceit, delusion, while mixed with very real threats and dangers to our well-being, and this has slammed up against our collective conscious and intelligence and sanity. The confusion and overwhelm, depression and anxiety, all come from trying to make sense of what will never make sense. The solution is to surrender to the fact that this man is fucking insane... and you are not. Trust yourself. It's not your job to make sense of this insanity, but to go forward accepting that you are right. It's fucking insane. We have to deal with that, but we will never understand it or make sense of it, and we cannot lose our sense of trust in ourselves because that is the underpinning of security and stability in ourselves and society. It may seem silly, but knowing all of this lifted a huge weight of anxiety from me and helped me trust myself again when I had no idea I was being pitted against myself. It's a process, but it's helped tremendously in getting me out of my funk that was affecting my ability to channel for so long. I hope just knowing this seemingly obvious thing can help some of you. Troy
  2. I thought that many of us may need a place to focus our anxiety and share our comfort in each other as we await the results of the United States Presidential Election on November 8. Personally, I am a churning ball of nausea and anxiety, my mind is mush, and I can't focus. I feel like every fiber of my Being is focused on holding a vision of the best outcome. Hopefully, we will be celebrating something historic soon, as opposed to seeing history repeat itself.' Let's see how this goes...
  3. So I've joined up with a new movement within the Democratic Party that is looking to make a coordinated push to elect representatives who will not be beholden to corporations or special interests, and to oust the dominant, "corporate" wing of the party. Their primary goal once in power is to reform election and campaign finance so that the people have real control of their elected officials again. I think this is an important initiative, and one worth supporting. https://justicedemocrats.com/home-1/?utm_expid=138498668-0.DbzB_JSuQ6u6dZl0XxJRfw.1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fduckduckgo.com%2F
  4. November 4, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We realize that there is a great deal of dismay following your most recent United States of America election for 2004 presidency. This is to be expected when observing the surface of the events, but when the emotional and intellectual reactions clear, there will be more clarity and certainty than presently anticipated. Currently the United States is predominantly Mature Soul as an average soul age, but Young Soul perceptions are the predominant perception, even among the majority of Mature Souls. It is a confusing time for the United States as it transits from the Young Soul values and perception and into the Mature Soul values and perceptions. Most of the Mature Souls in the United States are 1st Level to 3rd Level Mature and this does not make for strong stances for Mature Soul values. With approximately 90 million Young Souls and 100 million 1st through 3rd-Level Mature Souls dominating your country, it could be said that nearly 200 million fragments are contributing to the paradigm of the Young Soul. This number is more than the number of counted voters in your most recent election, from what we can determine at this point. If every Old Soul and every 4th Level Mature to 7th Level Mature Soul were to have contributed to the vote, that number would only be approximately 40.5 million fragments. If you factor in the Baby Soul population, the older fragments with the higher perspectives are vastly outnumbered. We share these “statistics” with you as a means to put into perspective how the United States is growing, progressing, and maturing in its own natural way. We have stated before, but will state again, that one of the catalysts for final implementation of Mature Soul values and perspective is THROUGH the medium of Young Soul events. It is naturally, the “only way”. From our perspective, it is important to note that more Mature Souls voted in this election than did Young Souls. But with the inclination to support familiar Young Soul values, it could be said that nearly half of the counted votes were collected from “young souls”. The impact of electing the current president will most likely be the final catalyst for the implementation of a Mature Soul paradigm. The Mature Souls who voted for the current president of the United States are eager for something dramatic to change the paradigm to which that country subscribes. From the Personality level the votes were cast as a means to uphold the familiar, but on an Essence Level, the votes were cast as the most potentially-combustible and permanent path of change available in your time. The contrast between “now” and the time of what would be your next election may be quite striking and, in the end, quite beneficial. We will open the floor to your questions now. [Questioner] also aren’t many of the “older” souls still children, and not of voting age? [Michael_Entity] Of the 40+ million fragments we would refer to as “older souls”, it is valid that approximately 25 million of these fragments are under the legal voting age. [Questioner] What can you see happening in the next 4 years that would be beneficial? In other words, can you be more specific? [Michael_Entity] We do not (and cannot) predict, but we can see the probabilities that appear to be more or less likely to manifest. The term “beneficial” is subjective, but we will use it in the context of events contributing to the stability of Mature Soul perception. In that context, there are two major events of high probability that will contribute to that change: 1. the assassination or dramatic unseating of your current president; and 2. the revelation and factual reveal that both elections of the current president of the United States were a result of conspiracy We do not wish to “add fire” to the concept of “conspiracy”, but part of your dismay and intuitive repulsion to the recent election is not rooted simply in disappointment. Your inner perception of this event will more than likely be vindicated within the next 4 years. The “benefit” then of this election will most likely be the complete overhaul of an outdated voting and political system. When your voting system and methods have been changed and implemented, you will then know you live in a Mature Soul world. [Questioner] Can Michael suggest ways that we can stay in positive poles and avoid getting caught up in Maya and our Chief Features (fears) on an individual level during this difficult time? [Michael_Entity] If you wish to stay in the positive poles of your overleaves, we suggest considering this time frame as no different from any other time frame in your life. It is not the first time you have been disappointed, betrayed, or appalled. That is simply a part of life and this time is no more difficult than any other. Most of the “difficulty” that is being experienced at this time by older fragments is an exaggerated emotional extrapolation from the speculation or expectations of the resulted events, but not from the reality of the events. In other words, where the early Mature Souls are living through outdated Young Soul perspectives, the older souls are living through outdated Mature Soul perceptions, tending to over-dramatize events as a means of alleviating boredom and rediscovering purpose. Therefore, within the context of this specific disappointment and dismay (the election), and the resulting drama that may begin to unfold from this, we suggest a conscious examination of your specific Soul Age. We suggest gently examining your True Soul Age and implementing your own paradigm in ways that you are capable of living. It could easily be said that if the older fragments do not implement their own soul age, it does nothing to help the evolution of perspective among other fragments. In other words, “be yourself”. Find ways to BE more fully who you are. If you are confused about what it means to “be yourself”, this phrase always means being who you WANT to be at that moment. There is no way you CANNOT “be yourself”, but being conscious of the process and expression can help navigate you through your personal world more peacefully and with more fulfillment. [Questioner] Regarding the emphasis placed on “moral values” among voters, and the alarming growth of Christian fundamentalism since the 1990s (which is equally repugnant to liberal Christians like myself, and non-Christians), this [moral value] seems to have a broader appeal than just among Baby souls looking for religious structure: is that true, and what would be the reasons for it among other soul ages? [Michael_Entity] There are several reasons that may apply here: One is that most organized religions are not “spiritual”, but more a means of competition, territorialism, division, and gain. Christianity marked the full implementation of the Young Soul age on your planet, so it is not surprising that Christianity is the primary religion of a Young Soul country. “Christian Moral Values” is simply a Young Soul means of justifying the methods of protecting the comforts of gained territory, wealth, security, etc. Another reason for the appeal among various soul ages is that it is simply the popular religion of the United States. Along with iPods and AOL, most fragments in a Young Soul paradigm find the most popular to be the most appealing, regardless of the quality, resonance, or practicality. All soul ages are susceptible to that appeal when living in the Young Soul paradigm. And finally, of course, there are legitimate levels of spirituality found by any soul age in any distorted religions of your time frame. All religions were initiated or built upon a legitimate spiritual tenet. SIDE NOTE: It may be of interest to you to note that Religion is a Young Soul construct using the ingredients of Baby Soul myths. It is many times thought that Religion is a Baby Soul construct, but that has never been the case. Religion is highly appealing to Baby Souls, but it is the Young Souls who manage that business. We have yet to see a more powerfully marketed, unquestioningly-purchased, and ultimately pointless product on your planet. This is not to say that value is not ultimately extracted from the experience, but we have seen more detours in personal and global evolution due to the freely-accepted oppression of religion than from any other context in your history. [Questioner] Will fundamentalism continue to grow, or will there be greater tolerance for things like gay marriage? [Michael_Entity] Religion, Politics, and Commercialism will continue to collapse and rebuild itself in a way that accounts for diversity, not conformity. That is the key difference between where your world is moving and from where it is coming. It is already happening without being truly noticed, but it is happening. The implementation of hundreds of television channels, for instance, is a Mature Soul paradigm. The “death” of subsidized radio and a restricted music industry is another. The internet is yet another. When diversity becomes the foundation of Politics, Spirituality, and marketing, you are in a Mature Soul paradigm. In more specific response to your question: There is an irony in the current election result and the revival of religious fundamentalism: many Mature Soul personalities may soon, suddenly, discover that they simply do not fit into the very world they sought to sustain. Consider a teenager who has taken great steps to rebel against the obvious future of his responsibility as an adult; so, too has the Mature Soul rebelled within the comfortable paradigm of the Young Soul. But as with the teenager, the Mature Soul will simply find it exhausting to maintain a paradigm from which it is inherently alien and eventually embrace its growth. [Questioner] Is the Diebold company part of the conspiracy? [Michael_Entity] Of course it is. [Questioner] sequoia? [Michael_Entity] Of course it is. We do not wish to convey that all parties involved within those services are part of “a conspiracy”, but there are a handful of fragments with an agenda that is as obvious to us as it is to you. There is an 89% probability of this fraudulence being validated publicly, though actions taken as a result of this may be less-obvious until much later. We will conclude with the next question. [Questioner] The fraudulence of which you speak: Is this part of the so-called 10-year program designed to hypnotize people to vote against their own best interest? [Michael_Entity] No. We know of no such program in which “hypnotism” is involved. The fraudulence of which we speak is simple misrepresentation. If all votes were counted accurately, you would not have your current president. We will conclude with a statement: It is important that you consider choosing for your emphasis to be on the greater patterns of your planet’s evolution in Soul Age. While it may be exciting to speculate wildly about the dramatic possibilities, it is also as exciting to consider the beauty and innocence that IS your fellow sentience. As the Mature Souls must eventually let go of their Young Soul paradigm, so does the older soul have to eventually let go of the Mature Soul paradigm (at least, internally). Consider that there is an irony in your distaste and repulsion at this time: it is a clue to your next (and possibly last) step toward Agape. How do you love the unlovable? How do you love those who hate? How do you perceive innocence in the midst of violence? How do you extract possibilities in the midst of restriction? This current event is not just about your planet’s evolution through an average soul age, but about your own Soul Age that is under self-scrutiny at this time. Can you love? Can you rediscover trust in a way that includes the soul of another beyond his False Personality? We do not ask these questions as a means to convey “new age” clichés, but as a valid response to many of your feelings at this time. Beauty is defined by us as “the recognition of patterns”. Chaos is “the lack of recognition of patterns.” You live in an intelligent universe within an intelligent design that allows for both Beauty and Chaos, both of which are simply a matter of perspective. The Older Soul is capable of acknowledging Chaos, while perceiving Beauty. Regardless of any physical, emotional, or intellectual circumstance, the choice will always be yours. We will conclude here. Good night to all of you. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Based on our recent chat with Michael, I thought it was interesting to explore further the numbers Michael shared. United States’ population is approximately 303,000,000 (according to Michael). Soul Age Demographics: 17,450,000 Old (about 6%) 123,000,000 Mature (about 41%) 90,000,000 Young (about 30%) 67,850,000 Baby (about 22%) 5,000,000 Infant (about 1%) Total Counted Votes Soul Age Demographic Breakdown: – 15,000,000 Mature/Old (older souls) 13% of the votes – 45,000,000 Early Mature 39% of the votes – 30,000,000 Young 26% of the votes – 25,000,000 Baby 22% of the votes An extremely minor number of Infant Souls voted. This accounts for about 38-39% of the population of the United States. 51% of the votes for Bush = 40,500,000 Mature (about 99% Early Mature) 9,000,000 Young (about 99% Early Young) 10,000,000 Baby (about 99% Early Baby) 48% of the votes for Kerry = 15,000,000 Late Mature/Old (older souls) 4,500,000 Early Mature 21,000,000 Young (about 1% Early Young) 15,000,000 Baby (about .5% Early Baby) Michael explained to me while I looked at these numbers that far more late-level Baby and Young Souls (in this case, 5th level to 7th level) voted democratically than did early Mature. They explained that this is because those in the latter levels of a Soul Age are more likely to intuitively anticipate the most useful future environment for their growth, but the earlier levels of a Soul Age are more inclined toward what has become familiar and comfortable. So it looks like the votes were affected not by Soul Age, but by Soul Age LEVELS! I had never considered that before! Michael went on to explain that they believe over 2,000,000 votes were discarded, uncounted, or rendered unacceptable and that over half of those were for invalid reasons and in “key states.”
  5. New York City Michael Speaks—Election 2016 2016-03-05 Channeled by Troy Tolley TRANSCRIBED FROM AUDIO RECORDING by Daniela NOTE: this will read a bit differently from most transcripts because it is delivered orally. NOTE: some editing for clarification 11:00 Hello to each of you. Bear with us as we continue to adjust to coming through. The music is nice. [referring to a passing vehicle blasting music] OK. We will try to make sense of what Troy’s presented to us as a direction of discussion on your upcoming election and its symbolism and its potential outcomes, as well as make sense of [all of what is going on] in itself, as we know it is quite a mess. Or at least it appears to be so. The first thing that we will say is that it is valid if it has crossed your mind that all of this in the arena or the context of the election is quite symbolic, is quite representative of what is happening collectively not only locally, geographically, but also on the planet. We mentioned recently in our delivery of what you call the Energy Report that humanity is “sick,” humanity is “ill.” We were not exaggerating. We were not being sensational. We were being quite literal. The bodies that make up sentience, your intellectual, your emotional, your physical bodies have reached a critical point collectively, where you can no longer sustain the momentum that you have been on through these [recent] cycles of incarnation. Most of our students suspect this in some way: that there has been a critical turning point reached that must be addressed in some way. This has been symbolically played with as a concept for many years, with the threat of “Y2K,” the Mayan calendar ending, and many references such as this that indicate a shift, or a collapse, or a turning point of some sort happening for humanity. And these were all valid representations of that cumulative reality of progression toward the breaking point or turning point. But now you have reached it. Now in this year something has got to change. And we do not say this because we have an investment in which direction you go. We know all of you will be fine. You will be incarnating again and in the worst of scenarios you will find a new species, a new planet to continue your incarnations. So we have “been there, done that.” And so we are not invested in this turning point in the sense that you MUST “save” yourselves. But we are sharing this perspective because you care. You care which direction you go. You care which direction your fellow humans go. 16:20 You are done with the risks of experimentation in directions that lead to “collapse and rebuilding.” At some point in a sentient species’ arc of evolution there comes a point when you are done with that [concept]. Rather than collapse and rebuild, which humanity has experienced numerous times, you would rather build. You would rather rearrange. You would rather move to another higher turn in the spiral rather than replace it. And what is happening right now is that battle between those who prefer the familiar “collapse and rebuild” to those who prefer the new concept, or the new effort toward building upon a rearranged or renovated foundation. There is no need for a full collapse for you to continue forward in your direction of preference. Yes, you may have to dismantle, you may have to do serious rearranging and altering and replacing but everything does not have to crumble in order to be built anew. From what we can see of each of the candidates that are representing your potential forward, each of them represent some potential in both directions [of either collapse or renovation]. None of the candidates that we can see are exempt from representing some form of collapse or some potential for building upon what is. Which brings us to the point that “building upon what is” can be terrifying if what is chosen to be built upon harms a great number of those of you who will be sharing space and time with those who have no consideration for how it affects you. So while, for instance, Donald Trump would like to “build upon what is” in terms of xenophobic, fearful foundations, it is not necessarily a “good” thing that you would move forward upon “what is.” 19:08 Our point being that both directions have potential for both a restricted, painful direction or a positive, loving, inclusive direction. So we do not want to give the impression that “collapse and rebuild” is the “bad” direction and “building upon what is” is the “good” direction. “Collapse and rebuild” have worked very well for a long time. So it is a combination of building upon what is considered good, building upon what is beneficial to all, building upon what is inclusive of everyone, that we think most of our students are concerned with in terms of “building upon what is.” Because the risk of building upon what is may include building upon what is restrictive, painful, and harmful, many do prefer the collapse again. Because at least when there is a collapse, everybody goes down. It is new for human sentience to try to find a way to “build upon what is” in a way that builds away from the painful and constricted and oppressed directions. This is new. This is scary. But you have to do it at some point, not because we say you have to but because it is part of growing up. It is part of evolving. When there is not a global awareness of a shared collective progress, then this effort to build upon what is happens on smaller scales in villages and tribes and towns and so forth, so it is not a new concept. We had our share of that experience as well. We did not miss out. But this is probably the largest scale that we have seen the effort necessary. And this is because not only is there a “smaller” world, so to speak, in terms of awareness of everyone else on the planet with you, but also because of the shift toward the Mature Soul paradigm. Everyone will be affected, not just those in the village. Now before we continue on in a direction that may or may not be of interest, we will open to your questions to help shape the direction of our discussion with you. 24:16 [Question] I have a question. In terms of the candidates: which one has got the highest probability of building upon in a positive fashion? Before we respond to the questions of probabilities for the various candidates we will make it clear that we do not align ourselves with a party. We know the channel is very passionate about aligning himself with certain values, and we will say that as Causal Plane consciousness it is not difficult for us to find ourselves in alignment with those same values since we have also had to learn the hard lessons of inclusiveness and love and embrace and progress without harm. That being said, it is clear to us, not only when we look at probabilities, but when we look at all of the candidates, that your greatest potential for “building upon” are in your Democratic candidates - - both of them. Both of these candidates have the potential to build upon what is in a way that would move toward progressive inclusion and benefit. However, between the two of them we cannot see how well either would be able to do this without falling into collapse. Both candidates, however much effort one may be preferring a “revolution,” so to speak, and the other towards “familiarity and building upon what is,” both risk collapse. Both risk moving in a direction that simply requires collapse. They are not immune to this possibility. And regardless of the differences between the two in terms of interest for how to move forward, one towards “building upon what is” and the other “revolutionizing,” both may HAVE to build upon what is as a means to move forward. But both of these are your greatest potential for moving forward in a way that is the least harmful to the most amount of people. [Question] You know I was hoping for a one person answer, right? We think narrowing it to two is fairly helpful. [Laughter and background chatter.] [Question] When you say “collapse” do you mean economic collapse, social collapse, or like a natural disaster? All three. 28:19 [Question] How would what’s happening socially and economically cause a natural disaster? It would not cause a natural disaster. It could, however, be reflected in the weather, in the climate changes. The weather, the planet, the geological face of the planet... all of these are tied into the consciousness of the dominant sentience on the planet. And depending on what is happening collectively it has an effect in the weather systems, in the climate, in the shifting of the Earth’s surface and beneath the surface. We are not saying that the consciousness of humans control this, but that part of the point of incarnating on a planet is to build a bond with that planet. To build a bond with the collective consciousness that makes up the ecosystem, shall we say, the spiritual ecosystem, the metaphysical ecosystem of a world. And so the social or economic collapse would not necessarily cause the natural disasters but they would coincide; they would parallel each other in a way that could be quite difficult to navigate through. Did this answer your question? [Question] Sort of. I’m having trouble articulating what I want to say. [Question] So would an example of natural disaster that can be directly or indirectly connected to this election or some of the candidates over others would be if there are candidates who are strong advocates for continuing to drill in the Arctic or fracking across our country, across the world, or putting more carbon in the atmosphere, contributing to the destruction of the Ozone layer. All of those things have an effect on Mother Nature. So they themselves may not have created the natural disaster, but their ideologies or their policies might, in addition to whatever economic or social collapses which they may more directly control as President or as a person of power. Their indirect decision-making can also bring about these natural disasters. Yes, there is that direct dynamic. There is the cause and effect in those ways that bring about natural disasters from cumulative effects. But we also speak in terms of massive hurricanes or massive heat waves or massive earthquakes that are not necessarily related to these irresponsible exploitations of the planet but are reflective of broader disconnect and disregard for the planet in general and the necessity for healing of the planet. And when there is a necessity for healing, not only in humanity but in the planet, and especially when both are in need of that, there will often come waves of natural disasters that reset civilizations in a way that allows for healing to occur in both humanity and the planet. [Question] Like Pompeii level? Yes. Or bigger, of course. 32:48 [Question] Aside from people’s actions, irresponsible actions, we’re also affecting the weather with our emotions and our thoughts? Yes, you add to it. Yes. We cannot describe or explain exactly how this works because we do not have a language that would help make . . . [Question] So does the level or strength of the bond proportionally affect the amount of healing? Because it seems like humans and Earth are kind of divorced (?) of a strong bond and so I don’t think that if there were some kind of natural disaster that that would necessarily result in some sort of healing on the economic and social level because I don’t think there is that recognition of the bond. What happens in scenarios such as this, or at least the potential in such scenarios, is similar to what was experienced in New York City during “9/11” when there was a shock to the social ecosystem where individuals who would normally have not felt any kind of awareness or compassion or sense of others around them, pulled together, came together, felt for each other, and with each other, and so on. This is a minor example of what we are speaking of, but our point being that when there is an external threat or shock to the system then the potential for generating a common ground among those who must contend with that shared threat sometimes has the effect generating waves of healing. So even if this natural disaster were to hit, and it would hit a group of people who have no sense of connection to the planet, their being forced to build or rebuild together, to take care of each other, to reach out in a way that they normally would not, has the potential to then help bring that connection and healing that goes well beyond the participants. Do you understand? [Response] Yes [Question] Natural disasters can shift our perspective. Or make us realize maybe how small we were thinking. Yes. All of you build these intellectual constructs that divide you from other people, and emotional constructs that divide you from other people, and these are comfortable and interesting and help you to know yourself or to distance yourself from knowing yourself. But when there is a threat then, say, three separate people standing next to each other who would otherwise have had nothing in common suddenly find something in common very quickly. And they find a way to bridge their differences very quickly. 36:55 What tends to happen, or what has happened, is that even though there is a short term effect that allows for that healing to happen, it quickly fades. We are saying that over the course of this year if the direction heads towards such collapse in so many different contexts, it will be very difficult to avoid the impact because of the long term effect of it. And so there will have to be a reaching across boundaries and divisions and constructs in order to build together. This is healing. This year as a turning point may sound ominous, but it is not. It is just growing pains. And these growing pains... in particular if there is collapse in all three areas... would be because of the resistance to growing together. It is not imposed. [Question] So, I don’t know if this is a continuation, it kind of seems like we are getting off the main topic. So what accounts for, because what often happens when we experience disasters is not a unification on a grand scale but more of a suppression and limiting of freedoms and thoughts rather than expanding. What accounts for that? Two things: The small scale of it, which tends to be relative to those who experience the impact more directly. And then there are those who exploit the scenarios from outside of the effects of the disaster. They swoop in, so to speak, and exploit the situation, dismantling or diminishing the efforts toward healing. This exploitation and diminishing is much more difficult to do if you are included in the effects of the collapse. If you are in your figurative high tower when there comes a collapse so that you are suddenly in the street with those who are also affected, you very quickly find a way to relate and how to work together or you do not survive. If we understood your question correctly, then our answer stands that the reason why you may not see natural disasters as good examples of bonding is because of their smaller scale and because of those who are not affected by it then taking advantage of those disasters. But a disaster on a larger scale that affects many from different levels of society then has more people in a position to make the choice to participate towards healing. They do not have to, but they are much more inclined to work with those they would not normally work with if it means survival. [Response] OK that makes more sense Yes, the motivations for the common ground will not necessarily be so noble across the board. Some are more inclined to do so in the first place, without a disaster. Some must find themselves in positions of survival in order to find a reason to work together. But there is still learning in that. 41:30 [Question] So is there a greater lesson for younger soul ages to have to go through a collapse. And could we assume we’ve been through that enough that we just don’t want to do it again but we can’t get in the way of others’ lessons so they can get to the same point? To some extent that is true. But as the collective paradigm of a sentience becomes more evolved and collectively shared then the less likely the younger paradigms are to take down those who are older. For example, yes, you may have already “been there, done that.” And, yes, there are souls on the planet who have “not been there, done that” and need to have their own experiences of this, but because they need to have those experiences or are curious about them and would create scenarios that would cause those circumstances does not mean everybody else who has already experienced it then must go through it again. So what tends to happen as the collective soul age evolves is that the older soul ages must then learn to step in and help to direct the growth of the species and the direction of the species and become, however exhausted and challenging it may be, the “adults,” so to speak, for the rest of the soul ages. The younger souls will still get to have their collapses. They will still get to have their collective collapses but on smaller scales and confined to their networks. The older souls can step in and help create the context for which the younger souls can still have their experiences without interfering with them but in a way that not everybody has to go down with them. [Question] So would Bernie Sanders be a direct manifestation of that symbol of an older soul perhaps stepping in? Yes. Yes, very much so. The fragment who is Bernie Sanders represents the highest ideals of the oldest souls who are among you. And we say that in a broad sense. We do not say that in a practical sense. The practical application of these ideals is a different story and would still need to be figured out, but that is exactly what he represents and why many of the older souls are drawn to what he represents. 45:20 [Question] I have another question. So would you say there were… I’m going to bring my conspiracy theories in… broader oligarchic forces on this planet that control the money, control, you know, corporate greed and the 1% that basically controls our government. Are there forces there that will do anything to stop him from getting into, to push his ideals forward? Yes, there are these forces. That is not quite that secretive or a conspiracy. There are these forces that are working very hard to steer benefits towards a very select group in power. That is not a secret conspiracy. That is simply how some fragments behave and they move into positions of power that then work hard to sustain that momentum. But they are not a force that is outside of the system of collective consciousness. They are not somehow stronger, more powerful, more magical. They can only have so much affect up to a certain point. Especially in the system that you recognize as your United States. But we will say, without this being a prediction or as ominous as it sounds, that there is a high likelihood that there will be attempted assassinations of any candidate who turns out to represent either side. There is quite likely to be, at least, an attempt. This is a self-destructive year. We see many fragments already “fired up” in that direction and feel empowered to do harm. The likelihood of the attempt is there, but from what we can see, it would not come from the forces you describe. It would come from those who were manipulated below, from outside. [Question] When you say potential for assassination on either side are you saying those who hold extreme views aka the Trump supporters and those who hold extreme views aka the Bernie Sanders supporters? Either side being one of those two factions having just as much potential to want to assassinate an opposing party representative? [Question] It’s not just Trump’s people or the truly conservative people? The potential is there from and against both sides. The difference in motivations would be clear but the end results are the aim for assassination. Both sides would be interested in stopping what they feel is a threat. And if Donald Trump were to move into a position of power, there are many from “both sides” who would find themselves in a position that feels noble and sacrificial to somehow to take him out of that position. 49:40 [Question] So you mention that there are going to be assassination attempts. Is there any probability that somebody would actually be assassinated? If there are attempts there are probabilities that it could happen. That is how that works. [Question] Probabilities are not only cross party. Could they also be interparty? Yes. Yes. [Question] So what are the probabilities for everyone involved in the election for becoming President at this point in time? We have been looking at this since Troy posed it to us and the fluctuations are so great that it is difficult for us to land upon a number that would be in any way useful to you. Not only because of the fluctuations in the factors that you are aware of, but there are a couple of… what we will consider or say are wild card factors... that still have not come up yet that must be factored in that will throw off everything you have been expecting as a momentum for this election cycle. One of those wild card factors, of course, is the potential for violence in a way that is quite startling. The other is a shift in parties or an additional party thrown into the mix. But, based on what we can see at this moment (and this must be accepted with a grain of salt, so to speak) is a showdown between Trump and Hilary. That is as of this very moment. This is not something we may say is true in an hour. We cannot say who would come out on top of that at this point. There are too many variables. *** This may seem like an ominous pattern that is unfolding but it is actually quite exciting. And we know we have the luxury of sitting here with no bodies that are under threat to be able to say this. But there is that part of you, however fired up or passionate or invested you may be… there is a part of you that knows this is exciting. There is something changing. Something is going to be different next year. What that is is yet to be determined and we know it will come as no comfort to you but there will be variations and parallels that cover all the different options because this is of such a wide scale interest with a lot of different ideas about what is the best direction. Some of the parallels will head toward the collapse and literally a cascading, shocking effect of civilization being dismantled as you know it from the turning point of this year. Some of the parallels will move in a direction that will transform how the world works together in a way that is far more inclusive, helpful, healing, and beneficial for even the most difficult of people for hundreds and hundreds of years because of this year’s turning point. So you have the whole spectrum to choose from, and part of you (and we say this literally) will probably go in each direction to some extent. Some of your parallels may die off after seeing the ugliness that some of them may bring but that is how parallels work. [Response] Pick your parallels wisely, people. 55:41 [Question] But why are so many people willing to follow a demagogue? We would say that the simple answer is fear. It is that simple. It may look like confidence, it may look like superiority, it may look like any number of empowered positions. But it is fear. When a population is fired up through fear it tends to be because somebody is promising something in exchange for that fear, in exchange for your confidence in a solution to that fear. And as you can see that is exactly the equation occurring. There are also factors that we will not get into tonight, but we can suggest for follow up. For example, there are also a great number of monads being played out in these scenarios where there is a corrupt master faithfully followed by servants. This kind of monad can happen on large scales such as this. And that is what is happening with the King and many who are hooking into a monad with that fragment. [Question] Who’s the King? [Response] Trump. [Question] Well, how do you ever do the other side of that monad if there are hundreds of people? When it happens on that scale the *experience* tends to be the point, not necessarily with whom it is experienced. When it is on a smaller scale, such as a husband/wife monad, it is quite easy to switch sides with that actual individual. But when it is a population focused on an individual who is playing the counterpart to that monad, then in order to flip that, the masses of individuals that make up that mass will do it on a smaller scale with, say, their child, and become the abusive parent to a child or the dictating partner in a relationship. [Question] So speaking of Trump, being that he embodies the young soul ideals as opposed to the other two [Republican] candidates who are leaning more to the Baby/Early Young, how much of his rhetoric and all the stuff he’s proposing just to win, he’s into the art of winning, and not really his own personal values that he keeps, you know, changing over the years and just speaking to the crowds, give them what they want to hear as opposed to, you know, what he believes just so he can win? 59:54 At least half of what is claimed as a passionate stance for him does not exist as a personal position. It is a marketing position. And this individual has grown to find false marketing to be a useful way to get people into positions to serve him against even their own best interests. Regardless of whether this individual upholds these values personally, it will not matter since they are upheld publically. So, while it may be true that on a personal level he does not have such a stance of division, he will continue to play that role as long as he needs to in order to keep up the effects and desires that he would like to have. Our point being that, in this case, the difference between private values and public values is moot. [Question] I was assuming, should he be elected, he can then do whatever he wants. He won. So, he could change positions and do what he wants. And not do everything he said he would do. That is correct. Without our diving too deeply into his privacy, for we can only access what is allowed by the individual to be accessed, we can see that the intent would be to uphold the ideas as long as possible even if no implementation were to ever be possible. Because it is the ideas that are powerful, even more so than the implementation. *** On a scale of 1-5, with 1 being “fully confident in a desired and beneficial outcome” and 5 being “terrified of the worst-case scenario,” we would pose to each of you the question of where you feel you are in looking at the probabilities, and feeling out the probabilities, yourself, for this year that is a turning point, a collective turning point. [Responses] I am sure it’s not normally popular, but I feel pretty confident that it’s going to go in a positive way because I feel like I am making some decisions in my own head that I’m choosing to be in a parallel that’s like that and I would prefer that. And also I generally like a nice easy path. As we all know. I’m the Reader’s Digest version of everything. So that’s what I pick and I’m going to feel confident in it. So I’ll say 1 then. 3 3 2 2 3 I’m giving people the benefit of the doubt they are not all assholes. Johnny’s not committing. Oh, eh, um, probably 2 and a half? But I have a question about the fear thing. If I can go back to the fear thing. Yes. 1:04:46 [Question] So, what are the advantages or who benefits from assimilating into a manufactured fear that’s not real? That is the nature of fear. Most of what is feared, even among our students in your personal lives, is “made up,” manufactured, or it is speculative, or it is taught to you, it is indoctrinated into you, it is imprinted in you. Very little of what you fear is actually something you have experienced to the point that it is a useful navigational tool. This is worked. This is something that our students work on regularly to be aware of in the process of making choices and perceiving and so on and fear still has its effect in your life. And this is for those who are awake. So for those who are not awake, not making any effort, then that fear is as real as anything else that may have been experienced, and in many cases because of the lack of experience and because of repetitive experience then these fears take on a life of their own because it is so outside of anything familiar to the individual and is seen as a threat to everything known and familiar. So it is not so much that it SERVES them but that they THINK it serves them well to stand in a position that reflects their fears, and behaviors reflect the fight against those fears. Each of you are guilty of this as well. And we say the term “guilty” playfully, but you have behaved in ways that were based in fear, that were not based in reality or based in simple navigation, but based in speculation, unformed ideas, imprinting, and so on. Fears that you are not good enough, fears that you are not pretty enough, fears that you are not loved enough, fears that you will fail, and so on. Does this help you understand how if you, with such inclination toward being aware of your fears, are still struggling with this degree of differentiation between navigational fear and speculative fear, then those who are not as conscious would have even more difficulty differentiating? [Response] Yeah, I understand. It does not make sense when you are on the outside of it. When you can see the absurdity of the fears, it does not make sense. We have had to learn to understand this because once you are out of the body and moving forward to higher planes, looking back at our students and their fears could easily bring sudden chuckles and dismissal of your fears as entirely unwarranted. But we must treat them as seriously as you do in order bring understanding, discernment, and empowerment to you. And this is also true of you among your fellow humans. Sometimes it is not pleasant, but if the possibility is there to understand the fears, and there is an opportunity to speak through those fears, then great differences can be made. However, we do understand that often this is simply not possible. Many must simply learn on their own. The same way that all of us must. We can tell you all day long how much you are loved and worthy, and you will still have to struggle to truly grasp this on your own. Next question? 1:10:44 [Question] I have a question about empathy. And it might actually need to be reserved for a full discussion on its own. But I know the idea of, like, Republican and Democrat is a modern construct that’s only a few hundred years old, but the idea of conservatism and progressivism or liberal thought, those go back I’m sure, even though what define them might have changed over centuries, eras, millennia or whatever, that that goes back. The idea of, I’m just, I only like people like me, or I only like things that are like me or make me feel good about myself versus I have this natural inclination or desire to help and embrace those around me, Human or otherwise. Is it, to me it seems like, it’s very clear that people who are progressive, Liberal, Democrat, Blue seem to be the people that have that innate ability of empathy or is that just a superficial projection that I’m placing on them? Because there are, like, die-hard, conservative, Catholic nuns who obviously have some sort of empathy if they’re out there helping, you know, the sick or, you know, children in need or whatever. Is it really that clear cut? Are progressive or liberal-minded people much more empathetic or not? It is all relative on an individual basis, but collectively as an idea your assessment is actually accurate. And while it could be said that a “strict nun” is of empathy, we would say that the difference between it being as a practice in ritual as an obligation, however much it may be chosen as an obligation, is very different from it being a part of your life on a daily basis in a way that is not based on obligation or ritual. So, while empathy may exist across the spectrum in varying degrees of concentric effect from an individual, the ideas represented by the progressive, liberal construct is representative of the older soul mentality. It is not a superficial obligation. The differences, of course, are that these constructs represent the differences in the soul ages and how the soul ages perceive the world around them. Older souls are going to be attracted towards a more inclusive, progressive perspective and Baby, Young, and Infant souls are going to be inclined towards those that protect them from threats or bring them desired results even at the expense of others. So your perception is valid. Did that address your question? [Response] Yes. We are stumbling through some of our delivery today because Troy keeps trying to listen in and it interferes with our delivery tonight. So we know that some of our sentences have rambled in directions where we lost control. We trust that each of you can make sense of our delivery. Are there further questions? 1:14:04 [Question] One last question from me. How can empathy be taught? Only through experience. Empathy is very much like Love in the sense that you can “give it” to someone, but you cannot hand it to someone. You can share it with someone, but you cannot hand it to someone. That individual must develop this from within themselves. In all cases empathy emerges from the effort to find common ground, to recognize common ground, and from the capacity to feel, to resonate emotionally with another being or person, even if from very different perspectives or positions. Life circumstances can be very different, but if two people are in pain it is the pain that can be the common ground of empathy, for example. Most individuals require a familiar face in a familiar experience to be able to spark that growth of empathy. Recognizing that others are also struggling and in pain but are distanced from them will not necessarily trigger empathy. But once there is a face that looks like your own face going through something very similar then the spark of empathy begins, and that spark of empathy does not end with a lifetime. It gets fed into the Essence in a way that Essence then builds it into the next lifetime, builds it into the next Personality. That Personality can reject it, of course, but more often than not it is difficult to do so and the Personality builds upon that empathy carried forward. Empathy takes lifetimes, in many cases, and is relative to soul age. [Response] And then I’m assuming then it grows from the face that looks like me to extend past things that don’t look like you, to other species and . . . Yes. It starts with, “you look like me and you experienced something similar to me” to “you don’t look like me but you experienced something similar to me” to “you do not look like me at all and you experienced something very different from me but we can relate” and so on from there. [Question] Is empathy then a moving-centered concept? We will say that the moving center is vital to the progression . . . but it is ultimately an emotional reality, it is an emotionally-fueled energy. [Response] It seems like all the centers would be involved. Yes. But all of your centers are involved in everything. Our response to the question was more to point out that the emotional center in its positive pole is Perception. And Perception is the capacity to bypass logic, to bypass reason, to bypass conditions, for you to be able to see another person, to be able to see another being. That is the nature of Perception: bypassing all of the obstacles that would otherwise keep you from seeing another individual. 1:20:08 [Question] But if someone has to experience empathy wouldn’t that involve experiencing it through the moving center before you can process it as an emotional experience? Each person may process it differently, but what we think you are asking is: if you have to experience it, then the physical plane and bodies must be involved, and in that regard… yes, the moving center is INVOLVED, but the gravity of empathy and its growth is in the emotional center. Because even though it starts with an experience in the physical plane and a familiar face, it still requires Perception in order to build that spark of empathy and then build upon that spark of empathy. It still requires bypassing the obstacles of logic and the obstacles of physical division. There are many who share in similar physical plane experiences and yet feel no empathy for anyone else involved. The Emotional Center and Perception is required. [Question] You said, so if empathy most often starts out with you first identifying someone or something that you’re already familiar with does that mean you have to love yourself first before you can have empathy for something or someone else? That equation is not a requirement, but it certainly helps. And it is not always the way the equation works. Sometimes the reflection that you see in another struggling is how you come back to yourself and learn to love yourself because you realize that if you can love this individual who is going through something similar to you then the empathy can build toward yourself. This may be something that some individuals do not realize but empathy is not just something that is developed toward others. It is also developed toward yourself. There are many who live without empathy for themselves. They will drag their bodies through an entire life and never feel the compassion necessary for them to feel loved and accepted and so forth. And so if this is done by understanding themselves through another, or seeing themselves reflected in another, then that is as valid a path as loving yourself, first. [private rounds of questions omitted] And with that we will head out and say good evening to each of you and good-bye.
  6. 2001: Probabilities for George Bush Jr. presidency [Excerpt from TT: 2001-01-04] [Barb] Good evening, Michael. I realize you are not a “Psychic Eye” per se, but can you give us any probabilities as to what the next four years hold in store for the United States under the leadership of our next president, George W. Bush? [Michael_Entity] We do not believe this fragment will remain in a position long enough to warrant a look into the next four years. The percentages are quite high for this fragment to leave his position in a rather dramatic fashion. He only wanted the experience of “winning” and living up to his own Family Ikon. This is ecstasy for that fragment and the responsibilities that go with remaining in the position are far too overwhelming. This is one of your major shifts in Power that will be scrutinized. Especially after the apparent fiasco around the process of getting this fragment to that position in the first place. The next four years, though, will be focused on themes instilling a new consciousness around CHOICE. Your election was one of the first “lessons” around this Century of Choice and the ramifications of choice being interfered with or not enforced. A new “60’s” mentality appears to be on the horizon with greater numbers in protest and “raising their voices.” It is safe to say that the Mature Soul consciousness is well under way on your planet.
  7. March 04, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Energy Report and Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin tonight with a brief look at how the energy appears to be moving in terms of consciousness and your shared outer world. Approximately the first three months of a given year are generally about the implementation of that year’s energy as described in terms of ROLE, GOAL, and CENTER. The Role energy and Center energy will be a context for the entire year, with each additional level of energy (in terms of Goal, Mode, Attitude, Chief Feature) becoming more directly implemented, or emphasized, during progressive portions of the year. These first few months have emphasized the Goal of Re-Evaluation. We have seen a great deal of regressive focus in your world as the varying Soul Age perceptions “take stock” in what is important to each. When a planet or large population makes a major shift in Soul Age, that period of time becomes wrought with the proclamations of each Soul Age. The most secure and confident Soul Ages are currently the Baby and Young, with very strong “voices” being impressed and expressed in and through the media. These Soul Ages are inherently “against” the encompassing of anything labeled as “other”. One of the final steps in progression toward the next Soul Age (from Baby to Young, and from Young to Mature) is through surrender to the reality of “other”. We state this because there are many Baby and Young Souls, near the end of their own Soul Age, who exhibit what appear to be quite progressive perceptions. This progressive level of acceptance is because final or late-level Baby and Young Souls are focused on the understanding and acceptance of anything that has ever been labeled “other” during the first 5 or 6 Levels of that Soul Age. While many Baby and Young Souls are clamoring for resistance to acceptance of the planetary shift, you may find pockets of Final- and Late-Level Baby and Young Souls standing in defense of the progress toward maturity on your planet. The stances of these Baby and Young Souls is important as there are very few “loud” Mature Souls at this time taking strong stances for anything in particular, though they will gladly contribute themselves as support. The majority of the population on the planet is Mature Soul, but these are very early-level Mature Souls with deeply sensitive, sometimes fragile, perceptions. Many of these Mature Souls are easily overwhelmed by the division and chaos that seems to be conveyed through the media, especially in terms of politics and equal rights. The irony of the source of strength behind your continued shift into a Mature Soul world is in the works and stances of these Late-level Young and Baby Souls. Many final- or late-level Baby and Young Souls have surrendered to the ‘new Mature Soul world’ of compassion, acceptance, consideration, and Rights. Their Essences are keenly aware that the choices made from their current lifetime will impact the reality of their future lifetimes and Soul Ages. We explain all of this for a reason: Over the course of this year you may find yourself in very awkward perceptual positions that you have never experienced, or have not experienced in quite some time. More often than usual, you may find yourself in quite shocking and disorienting contexts where the majority opinion around you is absolutely counter to your own perceptions. We see this as being particularly strong over the next few months, and for many of our students, this appears to be a serious surprise over the next month of March. We explain all of this to you as a means to help you understand and adapt to the “unrest” that may appear to be around you and against you. Issues of “morality and religion” are the tools of the Young and Baby, while “Rights” are the tools of the Mature Soul. The Young Souls are not particularly ruled by these issues of morality and religion, but they do know that to keep these values implemented keeps people in a more controlled position, thus allowing for better opportunities for the Young Souls. Over the year we see approximately 5 fragments in the final levels of the Young or Baby Soul Ages becoming strong, pivotal, public forces toward helping support changes in favor of the Mature Soul world. One fragment in particular appears to be known as Donald Trump. You may be surprised as to who “comes out” in support of controversial Rights. On a more personal level you may experience this energy as creating restlessness in you, an agitation, a compulsion to withdraw, or you may find that it encourages you to take a look at your own convictions, principles, and perceptions, moving you into a clearer, more conscious definition of where you stand in the world. In other words: there appears to be a pressure to take part IN the world more than usual, regardless of how you react/respond to that. This pressure may seem ironic in a year of Re-evaluation, but do not forget that Re-evaluation is on the same Axis as the Goal of Growth, sharing an Inspirational Axis. Re-evaluation does not inherently mean resigning from the world, even if you move into the negative pole of Withdrawal; Re-evaluation is about Simplifying. All issues in your own life or in your shared world are being simplified down to only a very few basic issues; the KEY issues. Regardless as to whether these issues are in your personal life or in your shared world, these issues will more than likely relate to RIGHTS. The public, shared world will be obvious as Gay Rights, Animal Rights, and general Human Rights continue to dominate the issues, but in your personal life, you may also be simplifying your own sense of Rights, i.e. your Right to be Loved, or to Love, to Have, to Know, etc. Some of you may feel a strong conviction that you have put off or dismissed some part of your life that you finally admit you have a RIGHT TO EXPERIENCE. The energy is now here all around you and among your support groups of entity and cadre mates, to finally allow/create some of those experiences. We can safely say then that a key phrase over the next month might be: I CAN. We would suggest making an effort to consciously simplify your options and actions and thoughts and feelings about any area of Rights you have felt strongly about changing. To do this, we can suggest 3 things for helping you move into a positive state of Re-evaluation: – decording: imagine releasing all energetic bonds extending to and from your body. You can do so by imagining “washing” these cords from your body, allowing them to drop or “pulled off” gently. Remember to pay close attention to any cords stemming from your back. Although energetic bonding is not as literal as your visualization needs to be, the symbolic visuals are valid. Cords extending from the “front” of your body are those in which you feel energized, lifted, and are there by permission. Cords extending from the “back” of your body are those from which you feel drained, depressed, and are not there by conscious permission. After decording your body in your imagination, imagine draping your body in a gold mesh of light, feeling a deeply peaceful release of all demands against your energy. This imaginary gold mesh of light is simply a way of consciously directing your energy to remain “clean”, deflecting the unwanted cords while encouraging the return of those deemed inspiring. – walking: simply taking a long walk in the open air with no intentions but to experience the walk can greatly clarify your sense of self as Soul and Personality, allowing you to be a better provider for you and your life. – singing or lip-synching: this may seem “silly”, but the act of unbridled expression can bring with it a great amount of clarity. Over the next month, if any or all three of these things were to be implemented once or twice, you may find you have a stronger sense of your next steps within this year. Some of you may already meditate, sing, and walk regularly, so if you feel these are too familiar, we simply suggest that you heighten your awareness in your next experience of these routines. Your benefit will not be compromised. We will stop here for questions about the ENERGY REPORT. We are not opening the floor to general questions, yet. QUESTIONS ABOUT REPORT [kittlekats41] you mentioned that the majority of the population is at the early mature level in the world – what is it in the United States at this time – also early mature? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the United States’ average Soul Age is around 3rd Level Mature, as is your planet and universe. This average does not mean you will feel it or see it as much as you will see and feel the remaining impact from the previous Soul Age average, of course. [Rivrbird] Michael, would you give an example of an area where majority opinion will seem exactly counter to our own perceptions in such a way that we would be shocked or disoriented? [Michael_Entity] We know of at least two fragments in this “room” who are surrounded by charismatic, social, affectionate, and warm Personalities. Upon prompting, these very same warm fragments express strong opinions and hostile stances against the Rights of anyone beyond Christianity or Heterosexuality. That captures the most common means of these surprising differences to be displayed. Many Old and Mature Souls will find that the very people with whom they have bonded or gained warm acquaintances have quite startlingly opposing viewpoints that are now being encouraged by media and political hype. [Anla899] What is the best way to respond to these opposing viewpoints when demonstrated by these acquaintances? [Michael_Entity] Of course, the “best way” is the way you feel compelled, as this would honor your ability to choose. There is no real “best way”, though there are methods that are more conducive to certain results than others. Our suggestions would rely on your sense of what you would wish to accomplish with your response. If your intent is for as peaceful a response as possible, we have seen that a lack of engagement in a debate is the most efficient route. In most instances, we have not seen much progress in a debate between a zealous Baby Soul and an emotional Mature or logical Old Soul. This is not said to discourage those debates, as your engagement in such activities or not, is your choice. If your intent is to maintain your sense of integrity and right to expression in the midst of these intimidating stances, we would suggest simply stating that you do not agree and proceed with any discussion within your level of ability and comfort, excusing yourself calmly when you feel you may lose your emotional or logical “footing”. [Rivrbird] Baby and young souls use religion, mature souls use “rights”, do old souls have a particular “tool” that we use? Michael: Most Old Souls will default to the tools of Soul Age in which they most relate, and in most cases this would be the Mature Soul. Therefore, you may find a great many Old Souls coming out of their comfort zones of acceptance and surrender, back into the actions that encourage Rights. Behind the use of that, we would say that the tool of the Old Soul then would be Wisdom or Logic. [Heidi Hessler] Could Michael expand a bit on how the Great Pyramid operated as a practical means for transportation? …Sorry this question is off the subject. We have a great deal to say about the “Great Pyramid” and various other structures of similar mystery, but we will limit our response to your question. We would not say that this structure was practical by any means, and we would not accurately describe it as a form of transportation. We would more accurately state that it was used for Teleportation. This feat was accomplished by harnessing the energy of Earthquakes. Its abilities extend beyond Teleportation within Space, but within Time, as well. It will be used “again”. We will open the floor for one or two more questions, if there are any, and then conclude the evening with you. [kittlekats41] I was hoping you might be able to give those of us who are fine-tuning our own channeling abilities some useful advice about perfecting our ‘focus’, or at least improving . . .:-) [Michael_Entity] Each of you has Overleaves that are more conducive to one of the three stages of channeling: Reception, Interpretation, and Transmission. Depending on the design of your Personality, you may be more inclined in strength in one of these areas. “Reception” is the actual ability to connect with, or sense, the energy in which you wish to experience. “Interpretation” is the actual ability to take patterns of Reception and make sense of those patterns within a language you understand, whether emotional, intellectual, or bodily. “Transmission” is the actual ability to convey patterns through you to another individual or group in meaningful ways. To excel in just one of these areas is not a limitation. For instance, Transmission might seem useless if you do not “know how” to Receive or Interpret, but this is not necessarily the case as many Healers, particularly in the context of Reiki, can attest. Their intent is to Transmit, not necessarily understand or “get” what is happening. Without an in-depth class to explain the dynamics of our comments, we can suggest that you sense the area in which you feel you are strongest and weakest (less-inclined). In the area in which you are strongest, simply practice as usual. In the area in which you are less-inclined, we can suggest a few simple tools to help gently strengthen these areas: Reception: Dutifully, willingly, and daily, keep a Dream Journal. Even if you do not remember your dream, write that you do not remember your dream. Experiment with this journaling by writing questions to your Essence, and assume your dreams will respond. Interpretation: study an intuitive tool such as the Tarot. Learn how to see and interpret patterns in the layouts. Create symbolic meanings of certain events and patterns around you and observe “signs” around you using synchronicity. Transmission: Sit still and silent without falling asleep. Practice suddenly relaxing your body at various points in the day. Incorporate psychic hygiene into your daily or weekly routines, allowing your showers/baths to also “brighten” your aura and release any old energy patterns you may sense. These are quick, simple suggestions, but they will do for your continued explorations. We will conclude here. Good night to all of you.
  8. November 6, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Chat – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your questions and as we understand it, Lori is first. [upstaate] I am asking for a Mini Energy Report for this month. [Michael_Entity] November marks the middle of the cycle emphasizing the processing of this year’s Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance on a collective level. This means that you have entered the psychological season, so to speak, which will allow the processing of the fears that are collectively generated in response to “inadequacies” and “vulnerabilities.” In most cases, this season of processing the collective fears is not done intimately, but played out in politics or larger-scale events. In this season, the emphasis on inadequacies and vulnerabilities has been glaringly evident in American politics. Even the concept of “Democracy” is being scrutinized to the point of revealing the absurdity of its lack of true implementation and weak points. There is a “quiet storm” brewing in the American (north) politics and November appears to be a pivotal month in defining how that will play out publicly. We are not speaking ominously, but simply stating the obvious: revelations are on the horizon and they will occur with grace or they will occur with tragedy, but probabilities show that they WILL occur; more specifically, a “domino-effect” of infrastructure collapse in what you call your current government (in the United States). When we state that that this “will” happen, we realize this word implies solid prediction, but we say that word in response to a 97% probability. In other words, the momentum is in place, regardless of how drastic a change might be made at this point, and is headed toward a “wall.” It is highly likely this momentum will hit that wall. At this time, we simply do not see your current President of the United States completing his term. We can also state this with some amount of unusual certainty because of the anticipation of those in the Astral; “all eyes” are focused for “the show.” To summarize the “mini-report,” then, in terms of world events: it appears most of you will find some kind of impact at some point as a result of the inadequacies and vulnerabilities being revealed within the current government of the United States. The pivotal period of time appears to be during this month, November, but the public results may not be obvious until later. On a more personal note, you may find yourselves walking through a period of time now wherein the flaws of OTHERS seem to be taking their toll on you. Distractions with the failures of OTHERS may be used to your advantage as a means to avoid your own flaws and vulnerabilities. This year’s passage through the season of Chief Features appears to have a stronger emphasis than usual. A great many things have happened in the world over your year that have left the public angry and in want of finding someone to blame. Some years move through the Chief Feature season with ease and other years are buried in its emphasis. This year’s months of October, November, and December may find each of you with at least one major challenge involving how to maneuver through the effects on you because of another person’s choices or actions. It is a powerful opportunity to explore your own Overleaves, how you respond to the flaws and choices of others as they impact you, and doing this from the angle of the positive poles and make a shift in the dynamic that would normally leave you trapped. Regardless of your own Chief Features, there will still be an emphasis around you in relation to the year’s chief features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. The end of your year is always a passage through the evaluation of what you accomplished in the time that has passed since beginning of the “new year.” Therefore, November usually marks the painful passage of time wherein COMPARISONS begin to be your means of assessing your days. We suggest keeping check on your own Chief Features as you begin to find yourselves comparing. Comparing is a valid process of evaluation, but many of you use it against yourselves or against others. Reminding yourselves that it is a TOOL for use, not for abuse, will help in the month ahead. [Annsge] Deciding whether to follow up Lori’s question….What are the probabilities of a complete change in government? What will this change expose? [Annsge] In US gov’t? [Michael_Entity] The probabilities of a complete change are nearly inevitable, though most likely not fully implemented before another approximate 50 years. However, the current administration is precariously built in a way that as one member is: pulled into scrutiny, the entanglement from that person reveals other flaws, creating a near-cascade effect in revelation. The long-term change will be based on the exposure of a corrupt government whose impact upon the public is far more insidious and oppressive than ever considered possible. This is not sinister, but merely a result of withholding and hoarding of resources that have always been available. Much of what are concerns in the American culture and society are concerns that are utterly reversible within a single year, if resources were freed. The short-term change for which we see November as being pivotal is simply the revelation about the incompetence, manipulation, and deceit that permeates the current administration. We have always seen this presidency as the pivotal presidency that has the potential to end an outdated system of government, voting process, and public assistance. [Tmk1802] Back to basics. Is Male/Female ratio constant or does it change from life to life? [Michael_Entity] It is a constant. What changes is the ways in which this is expressed and the ways in which it is eventually balanced. The higher ratio is a good indication of how your incarnational process began, as Male bodies are 100% Male Energy and Female bodies are 100% Female Energy; therefore, if your ratio is higher Female, it is fairly safe to say that you began your incarnations in the bodies most comfortable. As the Essence evolves, so does the want for balance, so choosing bodies to counter your higher ratio begins at some point. Eventually, bodies are no longer the only means to bring balance and expression, but Events, Relationships, and Experiences are utilized. [Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself? [Tibtyk] And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious. [Michael_Entity] The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.” In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved. The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof. However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake. Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough. Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love. Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence. Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.” It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens. In all cases of experimentation YOU will be key. You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK. You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO. And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you. [llawryf121] I’ve posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”? [Michael_Entity] That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context. In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamourous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work. In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality. Or Manifesting Essence. The fusion of Personality and Essence into a cocreative process. We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system. They are the language of glamour [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively [Michael_Entity] Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar. [Carrot Wax 1] k, now my question has changed to extend this question to Sages and other roles :-) [Michael_Entity] The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality. This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible. In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him. The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.” Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak. The walls that isolate the Scholar in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.” Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories. For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas. How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed. We have already addressed this issue in a lengthy session in the past, offering insights for all Roles. We will include that in the transcript for this session. In that case, we believe we have addressed Matthew’s question for elaboration, and will respond to Suz’s question as the final question. [INSERT TRANSCRIPT EXCERPT] Inherent in each Role, then is something we might call “The Great Lesson”. This is not a term we prefer, but it is one our channel found appropriate and we do not disagree, though more creative ways of seeing this will surely come from our sharing with you. Each Essence will have its “Great Lesson” and this ‘lesson’ will always recur each lifetime in some form. There will be no lifetime that does not struggle with this ‘lesson,’ however briefly or lengthily. Regardless of the dynamics of Personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge for a lifetime, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges. Essence sees this challenge from a very different perspective than does Personality and eagerly plays with this repetitive obstacle. These “Great Lessons” result from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane during the Astral and “between lives.” The body has to regain consciousness each lifetime, regardless of soul age, and seeks to “grow back” into the soul age last reached in the previous life. This “Great Lesson” is one way to ensure that at least some amount of conscious connection to Essence makes it into the Body, Personality, and Lifetime at some point. Each of these “Lessons” we mention as relevant to the Roles will appear applicable to each of you, regardless of your Role. This is because, in addition to how these Great Lessons relate to each Role, they will also embody the challenge of a Chief Feature. You may find you relate to a Great Lesson that is not relevant to your Role, because that extension. Each Role and Chief Feature, of course, by extension, relates to a Chakra, or Center, and this can also lead to connections. We suggest you only focus on your Role. Although you may relate to several Great Lessons, the greatest one will be the one related to your Role. We will begin with the Server. When a Server is conscious and connected to Essence, regardless of its struggles and fears in the life, its Great Lesson is in discovering that it can take care of other things, nurture other things, help other people, become tremendously effective in catering to the nuances of needs in other, BUT all the while being able to care for self. The Server connected to Essence and conscious of that connection chooses to take care of itself no matter what is happening in the life, knowing inherently that this is the only way to truly be successful in any endeavor of healing, care, and kindness to another. The Server who is not connected to Essence chooses not only to slack in its care of self, but loses its enthusiasm to offer care for others. This Server will emphasize and prove in its universe that things and people do not truly love, that there is only discord and that their own lives are not making a difference. This Sever will either shut down, or begin to use anger as its medium of expression into life; often resorting to Depression as its ultimate anger. They are Self-Deprecation, manifest. This Server is rooted in emphasizing its own and all others’ inadequacies, or lack of being. This can be overt or subtle, but it will show. The keys to bringing a Server back to a conscious connection to Essence (besides the universal, first two vital steps of recognizing and owning the choice for where you are, and then asking for help), is in doing anything physically stimulating. Running, jogging, going dancing, anything with dirt and the ground, and getting a massage. Anything that allows contact PHYSICALLY with what is considered the “outside world” and that provides data without judgment. The SERVER, more than any other Role, can often use the past as their only world and choose to gauge everything within that context, therefore, it is successful to release the past and choose experiences that bring the Server more “presence” by connecting them back to the life around them. Next we will comment on the ARTISAN. The Artisan who is conscious of and connected to Essence is one that has learned to allow happiness into the life. This may seem deceptively simple and universally applicable, but any true Artisan can tell you that it is one of their Great Lessons to learn to like receiving and indulging in the pleasures of this world. An Artisan who is connected and conscious with Essence has true joy and enthusiasm for the life, allowing room for whatever levels of prosperity and abundance are appropriate at that moment. They have admitted to themselves what they wanted, what they needed, and they are allowing themselves to have it, to create it. The Artisan that is disconnected or rejecting Essence feels their needs are too great, that they will never get what they deserve or are not worth the life used on them. The artisan disconnected from Essence is Self-Destruction, manifest. They have determined that they are not worth what they want. Artisans are clever and creative in their disconnection from Essence because they have helped to construct a culture that supports and rewards this behavior, even if unintentionally, but more out of obligation. This Artisan can extract from other fragments a false compassion and pity, but never anything of any real value to make the life seem “worth it” to them. The Artisan can endure for years and years in this state, far longer than any other role disconnected from Essence, because this state eventually requires others to reach out and care for them, even as they are not making changes, themselves. A tremendous amount of energy can be used throughout the life as they search for who the cause or the latest to be blamed for stealing their self-worth. Eventually, the Great Lesson can be learned and the life is transformed. At some point, and probably more dramatically than any other role, a shift in the life occurs. This brings the Artisan into a space that says YES to life, to what it wants, recognizes its needs and says they are worth the pursuit of whatever they choose. They finally grasp that they are allowed to enjoy their lives. Ways for the Artisan to connect to Essence in times of recognized disconnection are through any form of artistic expression, of course, though especially through painting or sculpting; making a concerted effort to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE; purchase things that feel fun and are usually labeled “trivial;” interact with small animals, or dance privately to music. Next we will comment on the WARRIOR. The Warrior when connected and conscious with Essence finds itself in many challenges against or within the life where there appear to be imbalances. A Warrior that is conscious recognizes that their very nature requires them to live intentionally and with purpose of action. This means, regardless of its tediousness or turbulence, they are always out to conquer something. The Warrior connected to Essence finds itself in many manifestations of chaos and disorder as a means to exercise and emphasize what is and isn’t Power or Empowering. More than any other role they are more perpetually in crisis of challenge because this is truly where their “heart” lies. It may not be acceptable or as “easy” as other roles’ experiences, or what the culture supports, but it is their world and it is vital. An interesting gauge for how connected a Warrior is to Essence is through observing the Warrior’s relationships. A connected Warrior develops strong, supportive social circles, while the disconnected Warrior leaves a trail of broken and failed relationships. The Warrior disconnected from, or rejecting of Essence feels that their life is one unrolling world of chaos and they determine they are just ‘lucky’ for what they have, relinquishing effort to make a path. More than any other role (even if arguably), the Warrior that is disconnected from Essence spends its life seeking approval and recognition, while consistently remaining in the shadows. The disconnected Warrior lays low, evades conflict, and depends on others heavily. The disconnected Warrior has a deep sense that at some point it needs to do or be something specific in order to be loved or recognized. Most of the time, this Warrior has no idea what that “something specific” is and will continue to close its circle of life down until it learns to make choices for itself, grasping that they are in control of their lives; this is their Great Lesson; that their life is THEIR OWN. The disconnected Warrior is Martyrdom manifest. This is another Role that can regain connection to Essence by incorporating or balancing with heavy physical activity. Making contact with life in a physical manner that brings data into the body emphasizing security and control, such as Tai Chi or the Alexander Technique, any sport requiring coordination, can all bring the Essence back into the picture. Asking to be held, allowing themselves to be held, or embracing someone important, can help as well. We will address the SCHOLAR now. The Scholar that is connected to Essence and is conscious has learned its Great Lesson, which revolves around the reality of shared love. This Scholar has realized with a great amount of profundity that they will not love another until they have sought to love themselves. As we have said, there are many of these Great Lessons you may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see these Lessons are definitively deeper for each particular Role when specifically considered. For instance, while all Roles must learn to Love, it remains a fact that all other Roles have an “easier” time loving and being loved than the Scholar does. The Scholar who is connected to Essence has realized they are whole and complete, that they like themselves and have decided to trust and open their hearts to their life. They recognize that ALL aspects of life are capable of being loved, even themselves and all of the hard times through which they have passed. When the Scholar is disconnected or rejecting of Essence, they do their best to ignore their lives, to resist the examination that not everything is fine. This Scholar refuses to examine their vulnerabilities and have not dealt with their shadow feelings, resulting in acts of dominance or power struggles. They have never experienced intimacy of any depth due to these things. They become adept at arguing their points, ignoring the pains of their past, destroying or deteriorating any relationship or person whom touches too closely to personal areas of pain and sensation. They are Stubbornness manifest. They, more than any other Role, truly fear what is called love. The disconnected Scholar will usually bring in a legitimate resource of love into their lives, but this is usually held at a distance and sought only out of need for refuge, sanctuary, and a place to safely rebuild or hold up the walls around their own hearts. It can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love that Scholar. Some suggestions for the Scholar to bring in more of Essence might be to talk to children about their perspective on life, actually play with children or play on a child’s playground. Seeking laughter of any kind brings Essence immediately back in for a Scholar. Seeking experience of the aroma and visuals of botanical gardens or observing the ocean can help, or having flowers within visual and olfactory range. We will address the SAGE now. The Sage in connection to Essence is the most obvious and closest to what the positive pole describes. They are TALKING. The Sage connected to Essence, regardless of what they are communicating, is at least communicating. They seek to express any and all feelings and thoughts as a means for communication. When they are angry, you know it; when they are sad, you know it; when they are happy, you know it; they will gladly tell you and everyone else. The Sage who is disconnected from Essence becomes silent. Of all the roles, the Sage is the most tender and fragile of all roles. We do not imply this negatively. This is simply because they are the “children” of our universe, and no physical age or soul age will ever change this; it is their “job.” This Role relates to communication, children, and the Intellectual Center or fifth (throat) Chakra. A child who has been driven or shunned into silence hangs his or her head to cover the vulnerable communication center of the throat. This same fragility and defense can be seen in all ages of a Sage, as well. When a Sage has gone silent they are rejecting Essence, literally losing consciousness. Forms of “silence” from a Sage can range through all forms of suppression. This means this Role, more than most, is susceptible to addictions and substance abuses; anything to redirect energy away from having to address what wants to be said. They are Greed manifest, as they fixate on something they feel they do not have enough of, and remain struggling to attain this at the expense of life and self. Their Great Lesson is in realizing their expression and feelings are ALWAYS important to SOMEONE, but that the legitimacy of their feelings is not dependent on being well-received. Ways for the Sage to regain consciousness and connection are through writing letters, reading personal journal entries to someone who will listen, sharing a personal story or poetry, trusting what you feel about a person when you first meet them, and singing out loud. We will address the PRIEST now. The Priest who has a connection to Essence realizes that life is full of many truths and each experience has its own truth. More than any other role, this role, when connected to Essence, has a deep, profound trust in life, knowing with true perception how to pass through the next moments and lead others through any confusion in life. Life is intuitively navigated. When disconnected, this Essence lives in a world of concepts and ideas, rational thinking and over-analysis. This would seem harmless, but the Priest disconnected from Essence enforces these rationales, ideas, and over-analysis to the point of destroying the life or misleading others as a means for false validation of their own beliefs. They lose their ability to adapt to the nuances of life and seek only to remain in a predefined, structured, and thought-out picture of life. This removes their ability to intuit and trust in life, but creates severe judgment and enforcement of fear. A great deal of effort and reaction will be used against any and all suggestions that conflict with the profound truths that they have concluded. This Role, more than any other Role, can make a lie become a profound, but false, “truth” about themselves, life, or others. They are Arrogance manifest. To help bring the Priest back into connection, we suggest to this Role, more than any other Role, to literally make time to communicate to what you consider to be your higher self, every day. We also suggest purchasing or making a set of cards with inspirational affirmations or a book of quotes that can be a “message” or “thought for the day”, for whenever in need. This will help lend insight from someplace beyond analysis. And finally, the KING, we will comment on. The King who has a connection to Essence is keenly aware of all possibilities within a life, and live with a sense of connection to all of its life. The King connected to Essence does not just live the life; it IS the life, as well. This King recognizes that it is the source of all of its life, through choice, creation, and even from a higher place. This King sees no separation based on time or space, but only the beautiful unfolding of a life as perfect, no matter what. They do not judge the life, themselves, or others for their position in it, but instead recognizes itself in everything around it. This King has dealt with what might be called its “dark side” and now sees through that same “darkness” in others, recognizing all of the illusions. Limitation is never seen as an obstacle, but as an important aspect of life to help direct growth. A King who has rejected Essence becomes highly separated from its life, separated within itself, and from others. Its Great Lesson is in acknowledging they are a PART of everything and everyone, not APART. This disconnected King is caught in circles of self-gratification and simple distraction for stimulation. They feel they, alone, are completely responsible for all achievements in life and resist any help in any form, in fact, sometimes violently. This King rejects people outright due to imperfections reflected about them and creates enormous amounts of Space and Time between those who are their most powerful support. They are Impatience manifest. This King who is rejecting of Essence will forever remain in a circle of development since they allow no other influences or support into their lives. Ways for a King to bring back a sense of connection to Essence is through visiting spiritual temples for moments of quiet and reflection, watching or reading information shared by spiritual leaders with whom they resonate. They can make changes in the life that reflects a commitment to the acknowledgement of the life force in all others, such as through vegetarianism or volunteer work. More than any other Role, we would have to doubly emphasize that this Role could benefit from ASKING FOR HELP. [END INSERTED TRANSCRIPT EXCERPT] [freyaisissuz] We would like comment from Michael about exactly what is a secondary conscious channel with an agreement with Michael. Thanks [Michael_Entity] We are unclear as to what your question is. [freyaisissuz] What does Michael say is a ‘secondary conscious channel’ so students will better understand the concept? [Carrot Wax 1] is there a context this term was used in? [Michael_Entity] We do not recognize the phrase as being a part of our teaching, though one of our channels may have chosen it as a means to convey a concept. [freyaisissuz] It is information given to Al by a Michael channel. [kittlekats41] can you rephrase it Al? [llawryf121] probably should follow up with the original channel [upstaate] it was channeled that Al had an agreement with the Michaels, using the phrase, “as a secondary channel” A fragment will have an agreement to be a primary channel. What is a secondary? secondary conscious channel, that is [kittlekats41] would ‘conscious channel’ mean as opposed to a trance channel perhaps? [freyaisissuz] That’s how Al understood it, Kate. [Michael_Entity] We would suggest asking that channel, as this phrasing did not originate with us. We suspect this is a phrasing used by our channels to describe a fragment with whom we have agreements to channel through, but not on a largely, public scale. It is not uncommon for certain phrasing to be generated by the channel as a means to convey a concept we have not created phrases for, ourselves. [freyaisissuz] That makes more sense, he doesn’t care to go back to the previous channel. [kittlekats41] Would you have time perhaps to elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? freyaisissuz: Excellent, much better phrasing, Kathryn – Al [Michael_Entity] We do not have time, but that is simply the nature of our plane. [kittlekats41] hehehe of course, silly me:-) [Michael_Entity] We will conclude here, but include a response to that final question for the transcript. [ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO FINAL QUESTION] (disclaimer: I am asking this questions as best I understood it, but I am uncertain if I conveyed it to Michael in the way the questioner meant it.) Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? [Michael_Entity] We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.” “Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only primary philosophy. “Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students. “Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy. “Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy. “Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time. “Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself or herself. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us. “Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material. In some cases, there is overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student. Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.
