    Sages: Living as Essence

    KurtisM

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] 

     

    MEntity:
    Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves.

     

    What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ...

     

    If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life.

     

    ...

     

    For SAGES, the question would be: IS THIS THE STORY I WISH TO TELL?

     

    This may seem obvious, but that is because all of these suggestions are likely obvious, and the truths of existence are almost always as simple as these kinds of questions.

     

    For Sages, the concept of the life as a story is inherent. There is almost always a sense of what the life will mean to others, how it is affecting others, and if it is teaching anyone anything.

     

    Because the Sage knows that all of life has value in terms of a great story, the Sage can often be quite indiscriminate in what happens to him or her, because it can always be made into a great story.

     

    But when the Personality seeks to live as Essence, the story becomes much more important in terms of its cohesiveness and quality. It is no longer about whether it is entertaining or dramatic.

     

    In fact, the Sage who seeks to live as Essence does not mind how quiet, subtle, or plain her story anymore. What begins to matter is if it is actually the story she wishes to tell. In other words, the story gets simpler and more immediately accessible, rather than embellished with dramatics and entertainment.

     

    The Sage who seeks to live as Essence begins to become acutely aware of how her words shape others' perception of her, and that there is a theme to the story being told. Sometimes when that is realized, it is shocking. The Sage can sometimes be so caught up in the storytelling thrill, that she forgets that it is shaping the whole of the story that others see about that Sage's life.

     

    Sages can be of the most vocal of complainers about life, injustices, aches, pains, struggles, obstacles, and all of the great points that make a great story. But they often forget that these great points are stacking up as a whole story, and that there is more to them than those complaints. So to bring consciousness and choice back into the picture, it is important for the Sage to ask if the story he or she is telling, is really the story he or she wishes to tell.

      [Excerpt from Geraldine's Infant Soul Lifetimes]

      [GeraldineB] Since most of [a previous] Grand Cycle was spent without speech; how was being a Sage expressed?
       
      [MEntity]
      In response to your first question: we would not say "most of this grand cycle" was without speech, and we would also point out that organized and formulated speech in the modern context is not necessary for Expression.
       
      Before speech became formal or organized, there was Cording, which was a means of communication that was depended upon greatly by the species. Cording allows for entire concepts and feelings and images to be transferred between bodies.
       
      Cording is a kind of "elastic" thread of energy that attaches between bodies that interact.
       
      These are not magical, and can (eventually) be measured and quantified, but exist as literal frequencies that lock onto one another for various reasons.
       
      [GeraldineB] I've read the discussions and questions on Cording, but I'd never thought of it in terms of communication
       
      [MEntity]
      Because Sages tend toward more organized and formal communication, Sages tended to become ports for many to connect through.
       
      Sages could receive a muddled concept or idea or feeling, give it a clearer, cleaner form, and then transmit that to the receiver.
       
      [GeraldineB] Is this part of the purpose of 3 inputs -- especially early in the development of a sentient species?
       
      [MEntity]
      Sages were often the only reason a group survived when out gathering foods, as they could convey across a plain or hillside that danger was on the way.
       
      Yes, Geraldine, that would be valid.
       
      Artisans are more about giving personal form to expression, while Sages are more about translating expression into a form that can be received.
       
      So they became quite important "hubs" of communication for Cording.
       
      Yes, Cording is precisely for communication.
       
      Of course, being out of a body was not much different in terms of how this works as a form of communication, so acting as a Guide was just as meaningful.
       
      [GeraldineB] So, Guides can form a physical type of connection, similar to cording?
       
      [MEntity]
      We would call it a frequency, to keep from being too locked into an idea of "physical" as it is understood.
       
      It would be much like communicating to someone underwater, using a walkie talkie, if you will. There are many frequencies that can transcend the form taken by matter.

      [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (Part 3 of 3)]
       
      Note: This entire set of sessions is highly recommended. 
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      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.
       
      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 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.
