  • Empty Seats on the Bus: Wild Cards

    Janet

    The following material was originally obtained in a POF and posted on April 15, 2012.

     

    Note: I am in Cadre 2 Entity 6.

     

    MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We can respond to your questions now.

     

    Janet: 
    Hello Michael! Here are my questions for today:

     

    #1. In advance of the Michael gathering at the end of this month, I would like to know my raw number if possible.

     

    #2. I would like to know about the other members of my cadence. As much as time will allow, would you provide information on my Cadence (Row) mates as far as if they are incarnate or not, locations, probabilities of meeting this incarnation, and a task/theme for the cadence?

     

    MEntity:
    Until there is a consistent way of conveying the details of Positions and Sequential numbers, we must give you two different numbers: If we are seeing your information correctly, your "raw" number in sequence would appear to have you at 373, or the last fragment cast on the "first side" of the Entity. This would, however, be the equivalent of the 30th Position in terms of the current model, if you want to use that as reference.

     

    This is because the current model only accounts for 343 Positions on a "side," but when there are 373 fragments on a "side," then the count repeats from the start, at least in terms of this current mapping. That would make the 373rd fragment resonant with a Position that is 30 beyond the 343, thus the 30th Position.

     

    This also makes your Cadence a Sage Cadence.

     

    It also makes your Cadence incomplete beyond the second Position in your Cadence, making your Cadence of Artisans with only two Artisans native to that Cadence, but the Positions that are "empty" to be managed by the following several Priests.

     

    Or "Wild Cards."

     

    If we are seeing this information clearly, the Server-Cast Artisan from your Cadence appears to be working with the rebuilding of Haiti at the moment through a beautification program of some sort that helps bring "spirit" back to the community, and goes beyond the priority return of basic shelter, food, and health.

     

    The rest of your Cadence is "empty," if you will, of Artisans, but is managed by Priest Wild Cards who are at the start of the following Cadence, which is on the "second side," as currently described.

     

    We realize this is rather convoluted, but it where we are with what we have to use when describing these concepts that are not fully understood, yet.

     

    Janet: What does it mean that the wild cards "manage" the empty spots?

     

    MEntity
    Through this channel, we describe the Wild Cards as those fragments who follow in sequence an "incomplete" Cadence, or count of 7, of a Role. If a count of Artisans ends at 4, then the 5th, 6th, and 7th Positions of that Cadence cannot actually be empty, so they are managed by the equivalent count at the start of the next grouping.

     

    To "manage" those Positions beyond their own, they must learn to accommodate a wildly varying array of energies, and this is managed in different ways by different Roles.

     

    Janet: so the next cadence is also "incomplete" but contains 3rd through 7th castings?

     

    MEntity: No, there is never a Server Position missing, and since a count as a beginning, it is only Positions beyond 1 that can be "missing."

     

    Janet: It is not totally clear but I will pursue at another time since my time is about up. Thank you!

     

    MEntity
    There is a "reason" for this, which we can get into in another exchange, as the force of Server Energy is vital for the incarnational process and momentum, so these Positions cannot be spared.

     

    Janet, think of it this way:

     

    You have 7 seats on a bus for 7 Artisans, but only 2 Artisans show up. 5 of those seats are now empty. That is the last of the Artisans getting on the bus. In the next row is another set of 7 Seats that are reserved for Priests. All 7 of those Priests show up and take their respective seats.

     

    Janet: The Artisans were probably busy with a project and forgot to notice it was time to get on the bus.

     

    MEntity
    Those empty seats create an imbalance in the Entity, or in the bus. They begin to act as a kind of vacuum for any seats following those seats in count. Or as a distraction, in some ways.

     

    So the first 5 Priests are affected by that distraction, or that vacuum, and they will get up out of their seat and move to the other empty seats, freely.

     

    This affects their dynamic within the Entity and in their incarnations, which is what we have referred to as "wild cards," since they are difficult to define, describe, or pin down as one thing or another.

     

    We can explore this further another time, then, but that is a start.

     

    *******

     

    (I'm having a very hard time dispelling the image of that bus with the priests climbing back and forth between the empty seats!)

      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We are here now. We will share with you some insights about using the Personality Overleaves in a way that may make them more useful and applicable when examining behavior patterns and shared dynamics between yourself and others.
       
      What we will begin with then is how your Personality was "designed" in the first place by your Essence.
       
      The process of creating a Personality evolves over lifetimes, but begins in the Infant Soul Age as "throwing together" anything that is more compatible with the defaults of the Essence Design already chosen.
       
      For instance, a higher "Female" Energy fragment would tend toward beginning lifetimes, literally, in a female body.
       
      The higher female and higher frequency Overleaves tend to be the Exalted Overleaves, and the higher male and lower frequency Overleaves tend to be the Ordinal Overleaves.
       
      Depending on the combination of Essence Role, Frequency, and Energy Ratio, your "defaults" would be determined.
       
      If there are extremes in that Essence design, then the Assimilative Overleaves come in handy.
       
      Over lifetimes, this process becomes far more comprehensive because there is more information and experience to consider in the making of a Personality.
       
      Over lifetimes, this process becomes far more comprehensive because Essence begins to define certain patterns of exploration and interests, not only based upon its accumulation of experiences gathered through the Personalities, but because there are certain "wishes" to fulfill for some Personalities.
       
      This process also becomes far more comprehensive because the positions within the Entity become fleshed out, so to speak, and the contributions to the Entity become important as an intention, rather than as a byproduct.
       
      Over the course of lifetimes and Soul Ages, the "core" of Personality will shift.
       
      The "core" of a Personality can always be any Overleaf, but there does tend to be a consistency in what is the core relative to Soul Ages. The core of a Personality can be the Goal, Mode, Attitude, or Body Type. By "core," we mean it tends to be the leading Overleaf for that Personality around which all other Overleaves become dependent. The core is what "feeds" the other Overleaves, if you will; the hub around which the other Overleaves revolve or extend.
       
      As the soul grows older, its choice of core becomes far more flexible, but the consistency is still set enough to consider it worth knowing the correlations. The MODE is the core of most Infant Souls; the ATTITUDE is the core for most Baby and Old Souls; the GOAL for most Young Souls; and the BODY TYPE (and by extension, Centering) for most Mature Souls.
       
      The Mode, by the way is usually the Core for most fragments who host Transcendental Souls, while the Goal is the Core for most fragments who host the Infinite Souls.
       
      We will pass over the "reasons" for all of this for now so as to get to the more applicable information, but can discuss the details as time permits.
       
      For most Old Souls, the core then is the Attitude.
       
      Keeping in mind that what we say for the Old Soul can be applied to the other Soul Ages and their corresponding Cores, we will elaborate.
       
      We have said before, without this background elaboration, that the Attitude is the core of the Personality, and for the Attitude to fall into the Negative Poles means that the Chief Features are far more likely to come forth, and the other Overleaves are most likely functioning from the Negative Poles.
       
      To bring the Personality from a state of Falseness and into a state of Trueness, the Attitude would have to be moved back into its Positive Pole, which would then feed into the rest of the Personality, in a kind of cascading effect, giving rise to the Positive Poles in the other parts of their Personality.
       
      While it is always helpful to understand the Poles for each Overleaf, and how to bring each into the Positive Pole if necessary, the "short cut" is always through the movement of the Attitude back into its Positive Pole, particularly for the Baby and Old Souls.
       
      Unless, of course, your Personality is an anomaly among the tendencies.
       
      Understanding your Core means understanding your primary platform or navigational tool for living the life.
       
      For those who have the Attitude as the Core, it would mean that the life is primarily built upon philosophical platforms, and navigation is done through how experiences, people, and events align with or conflict with your Attitude/Philosophy.
       
      For the Baby Souls, this tends toward like-mindedness and absolutes, whereas the Old Soul tends toward challenges and flexibilities.
       
      The "manifested" Soul Age can tend to throw the emphasis of a Personality into a different Core, which is part of the process toward wholeness in the Internal Monads; aligning oneself back to one's core.
       
      Before we continue into more details, we will take a few questions regarding what has been shared so far, if there are any.
       
      QUEUE OPEN FOR QUESTIONS
       
      [Oscar] you mentioned "...the positions within the Entity become fleshed out, so to speak, and the contributions to the Entity become important as an intention...", would you elaborate on how that works exactly and how that works for wild cards?
       
      MEntity:
      The Positions within the Entity are chosen by Essence (and to say "within" is not quite a literal term, by the way), and along with those Positions come general functions for the entity. Those general functions are a learned process, and not something that just happens because of a positioning.
       
      We will share an analogy:
       
      Imagine a bus load of fragments who have discussed along the way what each is excited about, afraid of, worried about, and feels strongly about experiencing at the amusement park toward which they are headed.
       
      Everyone has chosen a "seat" in the bus that corresponds to what each has already decided fits what it thinks he would be interested in, and good at, collecting for the bus load of friends.
       
      These positions are based on uncountable cycles of the universe and the capturing of various universal experiences relative to incarnational cycles.
       
      But for the sake of simplicity and our amusement park analogy, we will say that one fragment has decided he is in charge of collecting memorabilia, and another is in charge of taking polls, and another is in charge of sampling foods, etc.
       
      Every other fragment will also collect memorabilia, take polls, and sample foods, but this particular fragment in this chosen Position will be the one to which the other fragments "report" their experiences, and that particular fragment may have a theme with an emphasis on his function.
       
      By "fleshed out," we meant that each fragment then decides and learns how it best handles their function.
       
      Some will collect from the other fragments and update records for the entity only between lives; others will seek to find those who are focusing on experiences that are relevant to his function during the lifetime and create a stream of updating via various methods (dreams, meditation, daydreaming, etc).
       
      Some will find ways of organizing the data, while others will "pile it up," etc.
       
      Eventually, each position will bring his function/records from the park and back onto the bus, and then the process of organizing ALL of that begins.
       
      The "wild cards" tend to have between 2 to 7 functions/positions within the entity, with an emphasis on one of them.
       
      The task for the wild card then is to create its own system for managing these additional functions/positions, and this can tend to get rather chaotic in the earlier soul ages, and come together in the later soul ages.
       
      Wild Cards, ironically, become some of the most-focused, streamlined, and tunnel-visioned of all fragments in the entity during the older soul ages.
       
      [TimW] What is the best way to validate where one's "core" focus is? For instance, if my attitude is spiritualist (which I'm still seeking to validate), how would this look different if it is the core focus from when it is not?
       
      MEntity:
      The first consideration for validation would be in terms of how the life is being "built." Regardless of all of the nuances, is the life being built from your Ambitions (goals), your Philosophies (attitudes), your Relationships (modes), or your Behavior (body types).
       
      All of these will be involved, of course, and depending on various contexts and where one is with the Internal Monads, any could be emphasized, but there would tend to be an underlying, obvious theme for those who are self-observant.
       
      Where you life is RIGHT NOW gives one an idea about the core that it has been built from.
       
      Is it primarily actively ambitious, primarily philosophical, primarily relationships, primarily behavioral (empathic, assimilative).
       
      We are not finding the "right word" for the Mature Soul core as it relates to the Body Type, but we will eventually get that through. For now, we will refer to it as Behavioral, as this is how we will umbrella the concept of assimilating empathy.
       
      To put all of this another way: what matters MOST to you on a more regular and private basis? the accomplishments of the life; the interpretations of life; the relationships of life; or the way life treats you and you treat life?
       
      The answer for most of you will be that all of these matter, because you are Older souls, but there is one that should stand out as the most obvious and consistent, especially in your private navigations.
       
      The core then is around which all of the others revolve.
       
      For most Old Souls, the way life is interpreted is the core, and then relationships, ambitions, and behaviors revolve around that.
       
      As we are sharing new information through our channel, we ask now if this is making sense to you?
       
      [ClaireC] Could you elaborate on "manifested soul age can tend to throw the emphasis of a Personality into a different core"?
       
      MEntity:
      Over the course of a lifetime, the emphasis of core will evolve, eventually to align with the true core.
       
      This process of alignment is the same process for manifesting Essence, or True Personality.
       
      If one is in his teens and working through the 3rd Internal Monad, his emphasis of core may have his Goal of the Personality leading him.
       
      Everything, then, would be a matter of whether he is accomplishing that Goal, or taking on the challenges relative to that Goal.
       
      However, if he is an Old Soul, he would eventually find his Attitude a far more comfortable Core for leading the life, and calibrate the Personality around that Overleaf at some point.
       
      Until then, there may be a sense of being skewed, unsettled, restless, etc. because the emphasized core is not the true core.
       
      The process of returning to one's core is a natural process, and that process is not one that should be considered necessary to find shortcuts or that there is a standard speed.
       
      That process is simply "growing up," if you will.
       
      However, the older one gets in physical and psychological age, the more that gap between the emphasized core and the true core can become, and this can become problematic.
       
      If your true core is the Attitude because you are an Old Soul, yet you have emphasized the Body Type core (manifesting Mature) or the Goal core (manifesting Young), and you are in your 50's, it can become painful and internally/externally isolating.
       
      However, there are flexibilities in the Personality that emphasize the various Overleaves, and this is a healthy functioning of the Personality that does not shift its core. We will speak of this in a moment.
       
      When we speak of someone's "manifested" soul age, we are referring to a sustained emphasis, and not just a flexibility of focus for various contexts.
       
      So the farther away from ones technical soul age one is "manifesting," the farther away one may be from his core, as well, and the less comfortable and aligned within and without one might feel.
       
      We will continue with the topic now.
       
      Over the course of lifetimes, your Essence creates your Personalities with more information, experience, and intentions, and that is reflected in the choice of what Core Overleaf is first chosen.
       
      In that process, the Core Overleaf becomes the "spokesperson," if you will, for the rest of the design of the Personality.
       
      This may be difficult to imagine, and we are limited by analogies here, but we will try to convey the process.
       
      Essence would choose the Attitude, first, for example, and so it is that the Spiritualist, for example, is then informed by Essence as to what the plans and intentions and Karma etc. are for the life ahead.
       
      The feedback from the Spiritualist is then considered for which Overleaf is chosen next.
       
      This naturally changes the Personality immediately, and that combination now chooses the next Overleaf.
       
      This second Overleaf chosen is the Support Overleaf.
       
      The third Overleaf is the Seed Overleaf.
       
      The fourth Overleaf is the Navigational Overleaf. As this is new information for our channel, other terms could be used, such as the Correctional or Calibrational Overleaf.
       
      The Support Overleaf does whatever the Core Overleaf leads into and adds to its emphasis, and generally supports the entire Personality.
       
      An example: a Spiritualist interprets life as a spectrum of Possibilities, and in its positive pole will Investigate those Possibilities; if that person has his Goal of Acceptance as a Support Overleaf, then the Positive Pole of Agape would embrace whatever opportunity/possibility comes forth from the life.
       
      If that same Spiritualist is in the Negative Pole and goes forward into experiences with unquestioned Beliefs, then Acceptance would support this with an inclination for Ingratiation, or doing what is felt to be necessary for accepting/being accepted.
       
      The Seed Overleaf is that Overleaf through which all experiences are then funneled into tangibility.
       
      For instance, then, the Spiritualist with a Goal of Acceptance has his Seed Overleaf as the Mode of Observation.
       
      This would translate into the life primarily being built from philosophies and perspectives, or the interpretation of life, and then supported by the accomplishments or actions of the Goal, and then manifested or played out in Relationships.
       
      In other words, the results of the efforts of the Core and its Support could be checked against how well Relationships are going, and what is going on in them, the health of those relationships, etc.
       
      In this case, if the Core and Support are in the Negative Poles, then the Relationships/Mode may very well be, as well, and Relationships may be experienced as having a sense of isolation, lack, distance, ineffectiveness, etc. as Observation is in Surveillance, or watching, but not living.
       
      In this case, the Calibration Overleaf would be the Body Type, and it could be that the health becomes a factor in how one processes, removes, or corrects the events, situations, or relationships, etc.
       
      In the example above, it might be that the Body Type that manages the health of the body is Venusian, and if the Core, Support, and Seed are in the Negative Poles, then the health may fall into "sloppiness," or a rather chaotic collapse that forces attention to it as a means for correction, removal, or full processing.
       
      We would like to check in here to see if we are conveying this information clearly enough. Is this pattern of the Personality making sense so far?
       
      [TimW] yes, thank you
       
      [Jill] yes
       
      [Oscar] yes 😃
       
      [Mstudent_al] yes, very
       
      [Maureen] yes - but complex 🙂
       
      MEntity: We will continue, then.
       
      [ClaireC] yes, very much so
       
      MEntity:
      As each of you experience your life, you will have these patterns of Personality that are core patterns, but there will be certain contexts that require flexibilities, and while this will never usurp your core patterns, the flexibility comes in handy for new experiences.
       
      The Overleaf that takes the lead in projects and when working with others sharing an intention that seeks tangibility is the GOAL.
       
      The Overleaf that takes the lead in social situations and especially when first introducing yourselves is the ATTITUDE.
       
      The Overleaf that takes the lead in relationships and especially when the intention is intimacy (and not limited to romantic intimacy, of course) is the MODE.
       
      The Overleaf that takes the lead in bonding and creating common grounds through which experiences can be mutually shared is the Body Type.
       
      Understanding these various contexts of emphasis can help in these various contexts.
       
      Knowing that upon first meeting someone, regardless of his or her Core, you will most likely share your own, and "meet" his or her, Attitude, first, can be enlightening.
       
      Knowing that it might take up to three exchanges for the Modes to become involved can be helpful for when it seems that you and the other person suddenly begin revealing a different level or facet of yourselves.
       
      Knowing that your Attitudes and Modes may have to be set aside for a project and that your innate skills as relative to your own GOAL are most necessary for that project can help one to not take things personally and to focus on the tasks at hand.
       
      Knowing that being around each other in shared physical space, and how that is played out, is a vital factor in how well you can share common ground and process experiences together can be quite helpful.
       
      We will refer to these as Contextual Cores.
       
      These do not lead to patterns within, as the Core Pattern cannot be usurped, but the Contextual Core would be the part of your Core Pattern that is shared with others.
       
      For instance, if someone's Core Pattern is Attitude, Goal, Mode, Body Type, and he is in a project-oriented context, bringing forth the Contextual Core of his Goal, he will still first have chosen this project because of his Core Philosophy, and this project must in some way support that.
       
      [Oscar] Could you give the Core Pattern for each of us (Core, Support, Seed, Calibrational/Navigational Overleaves)?
       
      MEntity:
      Before we would share with any of you a Core Pattern based upon our interpretation of you, we would first encourage each of you to assess this for yourself.
       
      We can say that for most Old Souls, the Core Pattern tends to be Attitude, Goal, Mode, Body Type, but that is a tendency, not a standard.
       
      For Mature Souls, the Core Pattern tends to be Body Type, Mode, Goal, Attitude. For Young Souls: Goal, Mode, Body Type, Attitude.
       
      For Baby Souls, Attitude, Modes, Goals, Body Types.
       
      For Infant Souls, Mode, Attitude, Body Types, Goals.
       
      These, again, are tendencies, and not standards.
       
      All of this information shared today would require another round of discussion for elaboration, but this is a start.
       
      To help you in assessing your Core Pattern, we will offer a kind of phrase that may help:
       
      My life is built and shaped around/by my
       
      A) Philosophies/Perspectives,
      B) Ambitions/Pursuits,
      C) Relationships/Intimacies, or
      D) Behaviors and Health,
       
      which is supported by or challenged by my
       
      A) Philosophies/Perspectives,
      B) Ambitions/Pursuits,
      C) Relationships/Intimacies, or
      D) Behaviors and Health,....
       
      and plays out most obviously in my
       
      A) Philosophies/Perspectives,
      B) Ambitions/Pursuits,
      C) Relationships/Intimacies, or
      D) Behaviors and Health,
       
      and is sometimes/often corrected by, processed by, or altered by my
       
      A) Philosophies/Perspectives,
      B) Ambitions/Pursuits,
      C) Relationships/Intimacies, or
      D) Behaviors and Health.
       
      Using that crude phrasing, each of you might be able to share what you feel is your Core Pathway as you understand it currently. To make it easier, you can simply post the lettering associated with the various components.
       
      [Maureen]
      So the 'arrangement' of your Core 'package' would account for the order of what is 'cascaded' when one brings back their True Personality from their False?
       
      For example: A/B/C/D
       
      [TimW] I'm thinking mine: A/D/C/B
       
      MEntity: Yes, Maureen.
       
      [Elaine] acbd
       
      [Oscar] A/D/B/C
       
      [Martha] A/B/C/D?
       
      MEntity: For instance, if one has a pattern of A, B, C, D, and it has come to a place where the body's health (d) is reflecting the states of A, B, C, then the process of healing would begin with the Attitude, and then the Goal, and then the Relationships, before the body might show obvious recovery. This would not be the case in every blip of illness, but for those that alter the life in some way.
       
      [Maureen] I think I'm standard ~ A/B/C/D

      [ClaireC] *A/D/C/B ?
       
      [Elaine] I am unsure about if I'm ACBD or ACDB
       
      MEntity:
      If you would like to be clearer, translate your post into more relevant correspondences:
       
      A = A (attitude),
      B = G (goal),
      C = M (mode)
      D = B (body type).
       
      So your pattern may be A, G, M, B in this case.
       
      Now that you have this information, you may take it and use it over your next week or so as you observe the patterns of your life, and see if your first assessment is still accurate.
       
      [Mstudent_al] I think i'm AGMB; B in behavior more then health
       
      MEntity:
      The information shared here is to allow for you to do the "work" part of "workshop."
       
      There is far more to this information that is available for elaboration, such as a more comprehensive definition of Core, Support, Seed, and Calibration Overleaves, as well as what it would mean for the Goal, Mode, Attitude, or Body Type to be in those positions. In addition to the elaborations, we will also mention that one's Core Pattern affects how one provokes or is provoked by another fragment's Core Pattern, and we can share more on that, later.
       
      Understanding your Core Pattern can help you to see the hows, whys, and whats of your experiences so that you can more effectively determine how, why, and what you experience.
       
      [Elaine] Karoliina received the following information regarding the process of solidifying of overleaves during 2nd IM. "During the 2nd Internal Monad, the first of the Overleaves will begin to manifest, and this will set the stage for the general arc of the entire lifetime. For instance, if the Attitude sets first, then the life would take on a more philosophical or Intellectual tone; whereas if the Mode is activated, then the life may bring more emphasis to the themes of relationships and intimacy, while the Goal would bring a life focused more on the gaining of experiences for the point of that Goal." Would that be different or connected to the core overleaf? Would the overleaf that manifests first during the 2nd IM always be the core overleaf, or not necessarily?
       
      MEntity:
      What you quoted from us is an elaboration without the context that we were able to share with you today. During the 2nd Internal Monad, the Core Pattern begins its arc of manifestation through the Personality, which may or may not set the stage for a challenging lifetime.
       
      If the Core Pattern is A/G/M/B, and the pattern initiates as G, then this becomes part of the process of the 3rd and 4th Internal Monad for alignment with the Core.
       
      [Elaine] So it is the core pattern which would manifest first during the 2nd internal monad?
       
      MEntity:
      ANY pattern can initially manifest, but it may not be aligned with the Core Pattern already in place; however, for the older souls, the Core is usually manifested during that time as it is already set.
       
      This is why it becomes a far more comprehensive project in designing and planning the lifetime the older the soul gets, because imprinting and too many random factors can affect the development of the Personality in ways that can be very difficult to recover from. But there are always parallel versions of the Personality that may do better than others, in terms of aligning with its Core Pattern.
       
      The farther the Personality from its Core, the less the Essence is allowed into the life, and Essence must "wait" until the life is over for the experiences to be collected from that Personality.
       
      [Oscar] You mentioned: "a Spiritualist interprets life as a spectrum of Possibilities." How do the other Attitudes interpret life?
       
      MEntity: The Spiritualist might be best understood as interpreting life as if he has never seen it before; the Stoic interprets life as if he has seen it all before; the Skeptic interprets life as if it can all be disproven; the Idealist interprets life as if it can all be improved; the Cynic interprets life the opposite of what it appears to be; the Realist interprets life as it appears to be; the Pragmatist will use whatever interpretation is most effective (or dogmatic).
       
      [Maureen] Is the pattern always the same - forwards and backwards - from False back to True and so on...i.e. A/M/G/B towards True and then B/G/M/A towards False? Is it that predictable?
       
      MEntity:
      Think of the Core Pattern in the same way that body, itself, processes life: food must be taken in and moves through a pattern before releasing what is not of use. So the Core Pattern is just as static, in terms of how it best functions for Essence to manifest.
       
      However, as with even the Physical Body, the process does not have to be entirely static, but those times when it is not, the alteration is usually to accommodate an extreme scenario, such as one who may have to have food provided intravenously instead of through chewing.
       
      One's Core Pattern is how one naturally uses the Personality for the processing of Life, and using the Personality in its inherent pattern frees it for manifestation of Essence, but only if it chooses to use this inherent pattern. No Personality is required to do so, and its happiness or lack thereof is not dependent upon it; it just tends to be "easier" when allowed.
       
      Ironically, it is far more effort to override the Core Pattern than it is to use it, but many people choose to create from themselves someone else' idea about who they should be, rather than naturally being who they are.
       
      To fall back into the Core Pattern is a great relief for the bank of energy each of you have for use in a lifetime, which is a finite amount of energy, by the way.
       
      If 40% of your energy is being used to sustain someone else' idea of who you should be, this is 40% of your energy that is not being used for creating/nurturing what it is you truly desire.
       
      To be more specific in response to your question, it is only the Core that is necessary for concern when focusing on bringing the Personality back into True Personality.
       
      So if the Personality's Core is the Attitude, then to focus on bringing the Attitude back into the Positive Pole would naturally cascade through the rest of the Pattern.
       
      There is not a real "pattern" for manifesting False Personality, except in that the predominance of Negative Poles describes the degree to which one is manifesting the False Personality.
       
      And if there is a pattern, it would tend to be that if the Core is the Attitude, and it falls into the Negative Pole, it would then cascade through the rest of the Core Pattern.
       
      The Pathways tend to be unidirectional, and tend to start with the Core, but because they are connected like electrical pathways, the "currents," technically, could travel in either direction in effect.
       
      The same could be said of the pathways of the body: inserting something into the anus can cause the mouth to respond.
       
      We will conclude here with you today.

      Conscious Connection to Essence 3 of 3
       
      Note: This series begins with Michael Speaks -- Conscious Connection to Essence (1 of 3)
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Hello to all. We are here. One moment.
       
      In our sharing with you our various perspectives of what is and isn’t being conscious of Essence, we believe a practical examination of each Essence Role would be beneficial. In our examination we will share what we perceive are the Maya (or Great Lesson) of that particular role and a more ‘organic’ approach to determining what might be considered rejection of Essence or what might be considered acceptance of Essence.
       
      We will note here that the positive and negative poles of the Essence ARE NOT indications of being conscious or accepting of Essence. A fragment in the Negative Poles is just as potentially “in Essence” as a fragment in the positive poles, at least in terms of experiencing its life. What we have sought to exchange with you is what it means to reject Essence or accept Essence as part of your primary being. Those who reject Essence are in deep isolation and a myriad of other traumatic or deteriorating experiences, regardless of how together their life appears or how wonderful their work and relationships and successes are. Those who are accepting and conscious of Essence usually have the enthusiasm to ‘make the best of everything’, even in the midst of what ‘should’ be devastating. Poverty, drama, accidents, horror are NOT signs of disconnection from Essence, they are merely experiences. A positive pole role can still be at its apparent ‘best’ yet still be disconnected from Essence. A negative pole role can be as difficult and trying as expected, and be conscious. The keys are in the act of Decisions and CHOICES.
       
      In the moments of your darkest despair, if you can “look up” and recognize that this space is simply where you are at the moment, even if you seek no resolution beyond that realization, half of your battle is completed. When you say “yes, this is where I am right now, I know I could do something but I do not feel like it right now”, you have granted yourself an open door to Essence. Acknowledging your state of mind, your resistance, your struggles, etc. are in that very moment your decision and choice to allow or change, you become immediately centered and present, regardless of your choice in either direction. This will immediately and in that moment connect you consciously to Essence. This does not mean your mood or situation will magically remove itself from your life, but you have opened your world and option for greater probabilities by that single choice, a millionfold.
       
      Besides your initial acknowledgment that you may have dropped your connection to Essence, we will say that the most powerful and profound choice you can make next is to ASK FOR HELP. The body is not designed to sustain animation and life without connection to Essence for any extended period of time once sentience has moved in. We want to note at this point that there is no REAL disconnection from Essence; we merely use these terms for convenience, even the term ‘rejection’ is inaccurate in light of the truth, but these terms capture the experience and we will continue to use them with this understanding. We will begin now with each Essence, but first, we will pause for a few questions, if there are any, about what we have shared thus far.
       
      [nemo999] What are the most common states of mind? Pleasure, pain, depression, sadness, happiness, attention, boredom … are these states of mind or are they illusion?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      This set of descriptions are only conveniences to describe whatever a person interprets as their reality in the moment. They are highly subjective and can refer to either illusions or what you have called ‘states of mind.’ They are all ‘real’ to a person experiencing.
       
      The definition of ‘illusion,’ or Maya as we prefer, is in the apparent indulgence in a ‘truth’ that is subjectively inappropriate for the fragment. There are some Maya that are shared collectively, some that are individual.
       
      Despite the fact that Personal Truth will render all of these experiences “real”, we will share a little of our perception.
       
      Depression from your list can be considered a collective ‘illusion,’ and one that is a deep indulgence in Maya, though very ‘real’ when inside of it. Depression is a resigned stance toward the life, an emotional suicide based on one or more of the Chief Features. This is not a judgment. When one is in Depression, we differentiate this from Grief. Depression is literally the consistent and insistent effort to reject the life. If Depression is being experienced, acknowledge that you are where you are in your experience, and ask for help. Depression is one of many Maya that creates a situation where intervention from outside forces is required.
       
      Pain from your list can be either Maya or “real”, but is always a symptom of resistance or friction, which we do not see as inherently good or bad, merely resistance to some Growth. Pleasure is always a symptom of higher awareness and connection to Essence. Sadness can be either, though if tears are involved, recognition of a truth on some level is occurring. If there are no tears, this is most likely a form of Depression. Boredom is always a symptom of Maya and is a literal self-lie to remove responsibility. When Boredom is indulged in, you are living in a space of time that was created from want of “having more time”, then when it arrives, you seek to fill it. This all happens because creation on the Physical Plane is denser and slower, therefore the space and time sought “shows up”, but sometimes out of synch with your faster moving mind. Making a note that Boredom is a sign of forgetting your original intentions can help make more of that time. It is not required, of course, that you continue with your original intentions, but release the judgments about EXPERIENCING the slowing of time and take a moment to stop. When we say this is a self-lie to remove responsibility, we mean this in terms of being able to respond, not in terms of discipline.
       
      [Azure362] What happens when one fragment is deriving pleasure from another fragment’s pain? Here is where I get confused. This encompasses all these levels, personal or collective, as in when society feels some sort of pleasure at putting some fragment to death, as in capitol punishment. So this would not be true connection to Essence then? So it is safe to say that some pleasures are of Maya?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      That is difficult to reconcile within the confines of the Physical Plane. We do not expect you to reconcile that, nor do we think it can be. Sometimes events are not understandable by Personality.
       
      We will say, however, that True pleasure is rarely experienced at the expense of another, unless both Essences involved have a mutual agreement for something that is otherwise seen as horrific.
       
      We will define true pleasure as being that which retains the recognition of the choice of others. If the choice of other is interfered with, then this cannot be true pleasure, it is only stimulation. And, no, it is not correct to say some pleasures are of Maya. Pleasure that interferes with the life, path, or choice of another is stimulation, not true pleasure.
       
      [Azure362] And then it is true pleasure that connects to Essence? I think I am getting it. Sorry, lol, but I see some fragments getting pleasure out of stimulation as such ?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Consider the image of a person gratified by eating a chocolate bar versus that of one being gratified by stealing the chocolate from a child. You will most likely intuit the difference. It is not complex when examined and the differences between self-stimulation and true pleasure are glaring. Again, the difference is in the lack of interference of choice in another.
       
      Our system of Personality and Essence is comparatively quite simple and each part of the system is dynamically linked to other parts, leading to what many have called Michael Math. Each role, attitude, CF, center, etc. are all linked by their axis. For instance, the Ordinal Inspiration will have re-evaluation, reserve, stoic, emotional, self-deprecation, and lunar body types, along with the Server, and the attributes of the number one. Therefore, as we discuss each role tonight in its disconnection from Essence, you might also recognize in that disconnection a link to that role’s inherent Chief Feature. In this instance, though, we might call it “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.
       
      Therefore, 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. Regardless of the dynamics of personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges, though it is seen from a very different perspective and eagerly played with. This results from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane while being Astral. 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.
       
      We will also note here that each of these scenarios we might mention in regard to the Roles can be applied to each of you since you may relate it to your own CF that then relates to the Role we are describing. Each Role and CF relates to a Chakra, or Center, and this can also lead to connections. We suggest you only focus on your Role for now, figuring in the consideration as to when or whether you are conscious and accepting of Essence, regardless of these extrapolations.
       
      We will begin with the SERVER. For now, we will examine the basics. 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 them, help them, be tremendously effective in catering to the nuances of needs in another 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.
       
      The Server who is not connected to Essence chooses not only to slack in its care of self, but loses its enthusiasm to seek to care for others. This Server will seek in its universe and emphasize in its universe any and all ways to prove that things are not loving, that there is discord and that their own lives are not making a difference. They are self-deprecation, manifest. This Server has its roots in only emphasizing its own and all others inadequacy, or lack of being. This can be overt or subtle, but it will show.
       
      Their keys to bringing back a conscious connection to Essence (besides the first vital two steps, recognizing 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” that provides data without judgment. The SERVER more than any other Role can use the past as their 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.”
       
      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 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 of Essence feels their needs are too great, that they will never get what they deserve or are not worth the life used on them. Artisans are clever in their disconnection from Essence because they have helped to construct a culture that supports it. It plays on other fragments, deriving from them false compassion and pity, but nothing of value to make the life seem “worth it.” The Artisan disconnected from Essence is self-destruction, manifest. They have determined that they are not worth what they want. 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 if they are not making changes, themselves.
       
      Eventually, the Great Lesson is 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 pursing it for.
       
      Ways for the Artisan to connect to Essence in times of recognized disconnection are through any form of artistic expression, but most especially painting or sculpting, making a concerted effort to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. They can purchase things that feel fun 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 a challenge 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 situations 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 or 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. The symptoms of a Warrior connected to Essence can most likely be seen in gauging the strengths of their relationships.
       
      The Warrior disconnected or rejecting 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 it 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. 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, a sport that requires coordination, or can all bring the Essence back into the picture. Asking to be held, or holding someone important can help, as well.
       
      We will address the SCHOLAR now. The Scholar that is connected to Essence and 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 Role symptoms you all may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see they are a deeper lesson when specifically considered. All other Roles have an “easier” time at 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 the hard times passed through.
       
      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 too 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 can still bring in a definite resource of love into their lives, but this is usually sought only out of need for refuge, a place to securely hold up the walls around their own hearts. The Scholar disconnected from Essence can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love them.
       
      Some suggestions for bringing more of Essence in 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 the 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 tell 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”.
       
      As this Role pertains to communication, children, and the Intellectual Center or fifth (Throat) Chakra, you can see the fragility in a child who has been driven or shunned into silence, when the child hangs its head to cover the vulnerable communication center. This can be reflected in all ages of a Sage, as well. When a Sage has gone silent they are rejecting Essence, losing consciousness. In fact, forms of silence can range through all forms of suppression. This means this Role more than most is susceptible to addictions and substance abuses, anything to redirect the energies 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 important, that what they have to say about what they are experiencing is important to someone, even if this starts out being just themselves.
       
      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 and profound trust in life, knowing with true perception how to pass through the next moments and lead others through those confusions in life as well. Life is intuitively navigated.
       
      When disconnected, this Essence lives in a world of concepts and ideas, rational thinking and over-analysis. This would normally 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 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. 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 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”, or whenever in need, to 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 the fact of all possibilities, 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 from even higher. 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 state in others, recognizing all the illusions. Limitation is never seen as an obstacle, but 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 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 from self 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 they resonate with. 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.
       
      We will conclude here. Since this session ran so long, we will not be able to respond to questions in this forum, but we invite your questions through your list or discussion forum at Otterly’s [aka Troy Tolley] site.
       
      Good Night.
