    Auras

    Kasia

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- September 2000]

     

    [MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people’s auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy’s aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally?

     

    [Michael_Entity]
    The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person’s Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen.

     

    A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here.

     

    In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy’s Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed represented the release of minor beliefs from Troy’s Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these are released, even if only temporarily.

     

    As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side.

      OMW - Nov 17, 2012 - Your Aura (Part One)
       
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We are here, and we will begin our discussion about the concept of Auras.
       
      There are many teachings that focus more directly upon this concept, and many of them are fairly detailed and valid as to how we experience this subject, so what we offer today is a perspective that can be put alongside any of your favorite teachings on this subject for comparison and validation.
       
      First, we will define the Aura as an umbrella term to catch all aspects of the Body that go beyond that which can be seen.
       
      In more technical terms, these are layers of the body that help to generate and sustain "down" through spectrum the more tangible Body/s that you know so well. In even more accurate terms, these could be said to be your version of every Plane that exists.
       
      In other words, your Physical Body is YOUR VERSION of the Physical Plane.
       
      The Physical Body that you know is your Essence's idea given form, but its condition, state of health, growth and maintenance are your own actions, ideas, and feelings given form.
       
      The Physical Body at any given point is the end result of all actions, ideas, and feelings.
       
      Therefore, it is not the body that emits an aura, but your aura that emits a body.
       
      What most people see is the densest part of the Aura, but your tangible, Physical body, technically, is still just a part of the Aura.
       
      That is because "you" are a projection of Essence into matter. In truth, "you" are not separate from this, and never would be, even in the Personalities who are most-rejecting of Essence. That person, Personality, and Body would not be able to exist if not for its being an extension of Essence.
       
      It is helpful to explore the duality of Personality and Essence for the sake of embracing and Manifesting Essence, if one so chooses to do so, but it will always be true that they are, technically, one and the same.
       
      YOU are ESSENCE, even if not Manifesting Essence.
       
      All forms in the Physical Plane are an emission from another plane. There is nothing of the Physical Plane that is not originated in the "non-physical."
       
      [GeraldineB] Question: Does a developing fetus use the mother's essence until the baby is both born AND inhabited by its own Essence?
       
      MEntity:
      The entirety of the Physical Plane is merely ideas and feelings given form, if you will.
       
      There are variations in how the development of a fetus comes about. In most instances, though this fetus is technically an extension of the Essence wishing to be born, it is still merely an extension of the body of the mother until the first breath, and is not fully representative of the originating Essence until after 7 years of life.
       
      There are many fetuses that are generated without any Essence ever intending to use them, and these are extensions of the mother's body.
       
      [Diane_HB] Are those fetuses then miscarried?
       
      [Maureen] or stillborn?
       
      MEntity: In most instances, yes, or aborted in other ways. When a fetus is taken through birth without an Essence wishing to have used it, it can be sustained by the mother's Essence only for the first 7 years, but this is usually not sustained for more than 3.
       
      [Diane_HB] Wow
       
      [GeraldineB] Is this the cause of Personalities being stuck in 2nd IM?
       
      MEntity:
      No body is born without representing an extension of an Essence, but it can be born without a commitment to living.
       
      Geraldine, in what way do you mean your question. Please elaborate.
       
      [GeraldineB] I should have said: When a baby does finally get an Essence later in life, i.e., up to 7 years -- is this the primary cause of being stuck in 2nd IMs -- i.e., very tied to the mother
       
      MEntity:
      No. Not necessarily.
       
      When an Essence "walks in," it will live as any other Essence, even with that delay in living through that body.
       
      The Instinctive Center for that Body would be extracted to the Essence who had been sustaining that body, and a new one "inserted." The first 7 years are quite easy to "erase" in terms of "baggage," whereas a Walk-In who enters later in the life would have more of the life experiences stored in the cells of that body, and spend up to 7 years sifting through those.
       
      We digress.
       
      [Maureen] Michael -- can we assume that an actual "walk-in" will also have a different aura? If so -- that would take some adjusting for the "grown-up" body.
       
      [Maureen] Michael -- if you want to continue -- please save that question for the end.
       
      [MEntity]
      That would be correct, Maureen, but in all Walk-Ins, there is a shared transitional period between the two Essences who negotiated the exchange.
       
      Or the body would die.
       
      [Maureen] Thank you
       
      MEntity:
      To continue:
       
      As the aura emits a body, the health of that most tangible body is directly connected to what is being fed into the emission, if you will.
       
      In the most obvious sense, how you treat your body, how you feed it, what you feed it, how you comfort it, etc., feeds into the health and shape of the body, but this is also true of what you feed it in terms of ideas and emotions.
       
      The more intangible the source, the more long-term the impact.
       
      In other words, what you DO with your body makes a difference in how your body looks, feels, and lives, and however long of a time you may think that may take, your thoughts and feelings take "even longer" to move into form, and to move out of form.
       
      This is why treatments of illness can often require processes that address the intellect and emotion far longer than the physical treatments.
       
      For most fragments, the gestation period of the body that is being used for Sentience tends to be the time frame of cycles for coming into physicality. In other words, emotions and thoughts that are sustained for more than 9 months find their way into "birth" into the body. This can tend to mean that it takes AT LEAST that long for healing and transformation of any ideas or feelings looking to be healed or transformed.
       
      This is good to know when taking up any effort to make a difference to your body, whether in shape, health, diet, mood, habit, etc.
       
      The more tangible parts of the Aura are those that relate to what you relate to as the Action/Physical, and the Emotional/Astral, and to some great extent the Intellectual/Causal.
       
      The visibility of these layers is valid, and each has counterparts that are tangible to the Physical Plane, literally or intuitively.
       
      For those who worry about whether they can see or not see Auras, we can say to you that your greatest concern is what you "read" in the aura that IS your body that you know. You do not need to see or read the colors and shapes that show up as part of the higher auras.
       
      Learning to listen to your body, and to treat it with long-term care, is one of the greatest gifts of "aura reading" one can develop.
       
      EVERY fragment has this capacity.
       
      Between the Physical and the Astral Bodies is the Etheric Body. The Etheric Body is where the more intangible and tangible is processed and filtered.
       
      It is the last stop for filtering and processing of Emotions and Thoughts that are coming into density. It is the body that is most directly linked to the health of the body, and gives rise to everything you know of as your body. It is a kind of matrix for the body, a template that holds the body together in space and time. It could be said to be the atmosphere for your body, and it can be toxic or pure, and usually a mixture. It is a representative of your Instinctive Center.
       
      This is the body that remains in space and time, even if that part of the Physical Body is removed, such as in the "phantom limb" effect.
       
      In some parallels, and in many probable futures, this Etheric Body is measurable and practical in its use for regrowing lost limbs and organs, or for promoting the growth of them if missing.
       
      Most of you can see this Etheric Body, and can do so by holding your hand out over a blank wall in a dimly-lit room. Allowing your eyes to fall into a kind of peripheral vision, or passive state, you may begin to see a blue-ish glow emit from your hand and arm. This is NOT the optical illusion that is left by the hand movements against your sight. The optical illusion is fairly gray in its visual, but the Etheric would be in some hue and brightness of blue.
       
      [GeraldineB] Since the Etheric Body is part of our Physical Body -- is it included in our DNA, even if not visible or known at this time?
       
      MEntity:
      DNA is in the Etheric, as DNA is also an extension of the higher layers of the aura, but not the other way around.
       
      In other words, DNA has its own Etheric body, if you will. It is a replica of whatever it is holding in time and space.
       
      [GeraldineB] and this is why limbs can eventually be regrown
       
      MEntity: Yes.
       
      [Diane_HB] When healers say they can "update" their DNA, are they really referring to the etheric DNA?
       
      MEntity: This is already a natural state for some species on your planet, and would eventually be replicated in your own species through the proper use of electrical stimulations.
       
      [Diane_HB] oooh
       
      [Maureen] Is it Salamanders that can re-grow a tail that has been clipped off?
       
      [Martha] starfish too, right?
       
      [GeraldineB] all lizards, I think
       
      MEntity: Diane, we do not know what is meant by "updating of DNA." There are many who presume to "unlock" various "advanced" elements of one's DNA, but this is a bogus notion in terms of doing so through one's mere intention.
       
      [GeraldineB] even snakes regrow their tips
       
      MEntity: Altering one's DNA through intention is about as useful as willing yourself a third arm if you did not already have one.
       
      [GeraldineB] LOL
      [Diane_HB] lol
      [Maureen] LOL
       
      MEntity:
      It is not that it is impossible to have a third arm, but if it is not already in place, it would take a great deal of effort and intervention to obtain this.
       
      It is true that the DNA of an individual can be altered within the lifetime, but we can discuss that subject in another exchange.
       
      [GeraldineB] Maureen -- add it to the list ?
       
      MEntity:
      The Astral or Emotional Body is the next-closest to the Physical Body in terms of its density. Its counterparts in the Physical show up as colors, hues, and a kind of various density of fog. This can be intuited through the imagination, or literally seen with the eyes in some individuals.
       
      The Astral Body is reflective of the Emotional state of any individual at any given time. It can change and vary on a constant basis.
       
      There are three layers to this Body in the Aura:
       
      The most-immediate layer is the CHARACTER layer. This is the layer that carries the more long-term moods and feelings that have generated from that person.
       
      This is the layer that most sense upon meeting someone for the first time. No matter how delightful or unpleasant someone may be in a social situation, this level of CHARACTER can be sensed, and it may not reflect the more immediate presentation.
       
      This layer is where all Agreements are stored, managed, activated, updated, and abdicated.
       
      The GOAL is most infused or "programmed" in the Physical Body, whereas the MODE is most infused, or "programmed" in this layer of the Emotional/Astral Body.
       
      These are not exclusive to these Bodies, but these are where they tend to function from.
       
      This is also where one's active Karma and Self-Karma are stored, managed, updated, or abdicated.
       
      This is the layer of the self that gets shared as one "gets to know" another.
       
      The Soul Age can be read from this layer. The colors here tend to be fairly steady in mix and hue, but do change as various Agreements are fulfilled and altered. And with any great shifts in perspective of Soul Age or Level.
       
      [GeraldineB] Do you read this layer when answering Profiles?
       
      MEntity:
      No. We read the Akashic Records.
       
      But many of our channels read from this Body of a student.
       
      [GeraldineB] Is this part of the reason for requesting a photo?
       
      MEntity:
      If photos are used, or requirements for in-person, it would tend to be the channel reading and interpreting.
       
      This layer is also where one stores and processes most dreams.
       
      The next layer "up" in this Astral Body would be the MOOD layer of the fragment. This is far more changeable and colorful, and is less-dense, more immediate in reflection of the emotional processes of the fragment.
       
      This is the layer that is often "presented" to others, and more directly in control from the Personality.
       
      When your mood changes, so does this layer of the body.
       
      This layer helps pick and choose from the Character layer what to deal with, what to ignore, what to consciously process, what not to process, etc.
       
      Whatever it is "in the mood" to tend to.
       
      Consider the Character Layer to be the Moving Part of the Emotional Body, whereas the Mood Layer is the Instinctive Part of the Emotional Body. It is often driven by aims toward emotional pleasure and away from emotional pain.
       
      The highest layer [Contemplation Layer] of the Astral Body then is the Intellectual Part of the Emotional Body, and this is the layer where shift begins from something simply being a theory or idea to becoming a belief.
       
      This is where one begins to prove or disprove one's ideas about life, self, and others.
       
      In terms of how this works as a whole, once one has built a case for an idea and emotionally charges it, it then moves down into the Mood, and eventually into the Character level.
       
      If one is working with others to help alter beliefs, it would need to be on this layer, because once it is past this layer, it cannot be changed, only counteracted.
       
      A new belief would need to be brought in, and from there, the choice for which to use would make the difference.
       
      Keep this in mind for your own work on altering your repetitive behaviors that reinforce beliefs that you wish to change. Let them be. Allow them to exist. You cannot change them. But you CAN add new ones, and the focus on that is far more effective than battling your unwanted ones.
       
      In the end, the effect is the same as altering a belief, but in technical terms, one can only add new ones from which to choose.
       
      [GeraldineB] So, for my attempt to quit smoking, it should be to DO something else, rather than stop/prevent smoking?
       
      MEntity: In terms of unwanted habits, the physical counterpart can be halted, and that is the "easy" part, but the belief will not change that motivated and secured the habit, which is why new habits might form around that belief, even if more acceptable in form.
       
      [GeraldineB] thank you
       
      MEntity:
      In terms of beliefs, whatever motivated you to secure this unwanted habit as a reflection of that belief cannot be changed, but new ones can be added, or brought to light, that allows for greater choice of emphasis.
       
      Smoking is almost always a habit born of the belief that one is ultimately alone, on their own, and profoundly lacking intimacy.
       
      [GeraldineB] Ahhh . . .when I was choosing double Arrogance
       
      MEntity:
      It is a means for filling the void in the Emotional Center, in the most literal way possible. Inhaling the smoke soothes this void.
       
      Though the social contracts are changing now, this habit also helped to bring about the interaction with others that may have been craved, as it was a social habit.
       
      [Maureen] very interesting
       
      [Martha] all smoking - tobacco and marijuana?
       
      MEntity:
      Only habitual smoking.
       
      For those who wish to stop smoking, it can be greatly effective to interact with others when one would otherwise smoke, or to acknowledge the truth of one's importance to others.
       
      [GeraldineB] thank you -- I see how it's been playing to isolate me due to the current restrictions and reactions
       
      [Maureen] no wonder it's such a hard habit to give up!
       
      MEntity:
      It can be interesting to play out the physical motions that have become familiar with smoking, while lying down new beliefs through considering one's importance, or socializing in whatever way is accessible at the moment. It may then become more obvious that you simply wanted company, not a cigarette.
       
      It can become its own meditation.
       
      When one is working to build new beliefs, it can be helpful to imagine this layer of your body as a colorful and playful space full of symbols for arranging new beliefs.
       
      For instance, if no one is available to talk or socialize, let yourself fake smoke, while playing out social scenarios in your imagination, such as meeting people you think you may never meet, or hugging those you miss, or talking freely in ways that you normally would not. Etc.
       
      But we digress.
       
      If each of you would like to examine your own Emotional/Astral layers of the body, here are some ways for doing so:
       
      First: establish color associations with feelings. These are fairly set for your species now, and can be explored through many teachings on color and mood, but also through one's understanding of Chakras and the color associations there.
       
      Second: allow your imagination to interpret your loved ones, relationships, feelings, moods, and experiences as those colors. Let yourself get a sense of what color your day is, what color a relationship is, what color your project or idea is, etc.
       
      LET YOURSELF have these colors. This means, do not push for them, and do not presume there is a right or wrong color. Simply invite it. In your worst-case scenario of blocking imagination, it could be said that if you simply cannot imagine these or see them, ask yourself what they would be IF YOU COULD.
       
      Using your color associations, or chakra association, you can begin to build up a fairly good idea about what your Aura "looks like".
       
      For now, we will suggest an experiential experiment right now for you to try:
       
      Give yourself some breathing room, breathe deeply no less than three times, eyes closed, and let your imagination explore your body, looking for a fairly solid area of color or colors, and note those colors, and where around your body you are "seeing" these.
       
      It may come up as a blob to your left, or a soft hint behind you, or a rich color surrounding you, but there is no one way any of you should expect to see this.
       
      Once you have a description, you may share it here, if you wish.
       
      [Diane_HB] I have a strip of red on the outer edge of my aura at chest height, going all the way around. Also a sky blue blob right on the third chakra/stomach.
       
      [Martha] green and purple, but I'm having trouble concentrating as Morgan is here and the TV is on
       
      [Maureen] I got soft pink all around -- then it changed to soft blue and purple -- and I had green around the eyes
       
      [Maureen] actually -- I got a blue blob on my 3rd chakra as well Diane!
       
      [Maureen] LOL
       
      [Diane_HB] cool ?
       
      [Martha] the green and purple are layered all around, purple is a muted fuschia
       
      [Maureen] I thought it might be indigestion!
       
      [Maureen] ?
       
      [Diane_HB] LOL
       
      MEntity: If you choose not to submit a response, please indicate so that we may continue.
       
      [GeraldineB] I'm not seeing anything
       
      [ClaireC] I'm out
       
      MEntity:
      We offered up this experiment for the point of two things: one, is for you to "see" where our teaching is in the Character of your Aura, and the other is for the experience of how easily or challenged you may be in calling up this imagination on the spot.
       
      If you saw Blue in your visualization, you found our part of your Aura, and where our teaching is most used by you. For most fragments, anything associated with what has become a personal guidance system, or teaching, can be found in or around any Blue.
       
      [Martha] what's the name for the third layer? We have Character, Mood, and ?
       
      MEntity: Character, Mood, and Contemplation Layers.
       
      [Martha] Hmmm, my purple was closest to the body, with green as the second layer. I did see some blue early on but when I had to visualize a body to get specific about position I didn't see it
       
      MEntity: If you did not "see" it, it is not that it was not there, but that your awareness went to something else.
       
      [Martha] yeah, I saw a flash of it at first, a rich blue
       
      MEntity: Blue, or one's teaching, is often a part of Green and Purple because of various factors.
       
      [Maureen] The colour at my 3rd chakra is a rich deep blue.
       
      [Diane_HB] I also saw dark blue going into purple from the eye level up.
       
      [Martha] 6th and 7th chakras are traditionally indigo and purple, right?
       
      MEntity:
      For this experiment, after you have a clear description of colors and location, explore various correlations of these color meanings, and how the location may relate to the nearest chakra.
       
      Keep in mind that you are looking at the CHARACTER layer, so you are looking at your long-term states of emotion that make up who you are.
       
      Your visualizations may change in your assessment of this, but that is not because the body changed, but that you are exploring different angles on it.
       
      To explore your MOOD Layer, one of the most tangible ways to do so is through a synchronistic oracle system, such as Tarot, or color-coded cards, or the drawing of keywords, or some other system of randomness that gives you insight into this layer of your emotional body.
       
      We have yet to cover the Causal Body, and to go into more exploratory and applicable ways to understand the Aura, so we are arranging with Troy for a "part two" on this subject, for this particular group. It will be scheduled by consensus among you for when this would be.
       
      [Maureen]
      Michael -- would you answer my question about my old friend Geraldine?
       
      An old friend Geraldine Smith-Stringer (Mature 5, Server-cast Artisan) could see the Aura remarkably well. The colours she would see represented what you brought in at birth. If she saw photos from throughout your lifetime – she could tell when you had “blocked” certain natural abilities and the times when they had flourished.
       
      Because of her influence I tend to pick up “colours” the same way. What layer was she seeing/reading?
       
      MEntity:
      In response to the question, this could be of the Character Layer, but it also sounds like layers from the Causal Body, if these are determined as having been in place since birth.
       
      If you are having trouble with using the imagination to "see," it is not a matter of anything other than personal preference. Some do not trust the imagination, or have, long ago, written it off as dangerous territory. Beyond that, some may simply have a hard time visualizing, which means that it may be more helpful to explore the aura in more appealing symbolic forms, such as foods, smells, animals, etc.
       
      In other words, IF my aura were to be made up of foods, what comes to mind, and where is that on my body? Or what animals come to mind when I think of my heart, my head, my body as a whole, etc.

      OMW - Dec 15, 2012 - Your Aura (Part Two)
       
      Continuation from OMW: Your Aura (Part One)
       
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We may continue our discussion with you about the concept, validity, meaning, and utility of the Aura.
       
      [GeraldineB] Maureen wants to start today's session with a question, Michael
       
      MEntity: Then we will begin with that.
       
      [Maureen] I had my Aura photographed last weekend. It was the largest one they saw that day and it was the only one that reached 100% of their scale. Also it was deep green and blue in the 1st photo and 3 shades of blue from medium blue to Indigo in the 2nd photo after the energy healing. I suspect that the size of my Aura is related to being a Priest Essence and I was wondering about the colour. How does the Aura show up for each Role in Essence by size, colour, etc.
       
      MEntity:
      These are two, separate contexts of discussion presented here: that of the novelty for photographing "the aura," and the distinct and consistent characteristics of the aura as relative to each Role.
       
      The photography is an effect, not an aura. Currently, we know of no instruments capable of capturing the validity of the aura. Most photography that passes as "aura photography" are using any number of effects inherent in the process, and not relevant to that which is photographed.
       
      In other words, with or without you in the picture, there would be an "aura," even on a blank wall.
       
      [Maureen] They say it is "Advanced Kirlian" photography
       
      MEntity:
      We know this can be disappointing, but the claims for authentically capturing the aura are false.
       
      Kirlian Photography is valid in that it can capture the etheric field of an object, using high frequency electrical charges to "fill in" that field.
       
      If you were subjected to a current in your photography session, those currents were interpreted and translated in colors and ways that are inconsistent and irrelevant to the aura. With or without any healing in between, your "aura" in these photographs would be notably different, with little consistency, since the algorithms are random.
       
      [Maureen] OK
       
      MEntity:
      If you were not subject to any current, then nothing was photographed at all, but was an internal process, programmed.
       
      In any case, we can only share with you our perception and understanding of what appears to be offered up as "aura photography," but we encourage you to validate this through your own tests.
       
      What we would suggest this photography be used for is something similar to the synchronicity relied upon in a Tarot Reading, or any oracle of chance.
       
      [Maureen] What was interesting to me was what showed up in my 1st and 2nd Chakra -- was exactly what you had spoken to me about the day before Michael. The similarities were quite striking. But I don't want to digress
       
      MEntity:
      Flipping open a favorite book to read a "message of the day," or laying out a spread of cards pulled randomly from a deck, or the casting of iChing, or the creative interpretation of the shape left by tea leaves, all are valid ways to gain insight into the self, the moment, the future, problems, etc. The randomness of the photographing and color effects can be just as insightful and synchronistic.
       
      In other words, you could have pulled Tarot Cards for your aura reading and would have the same potential for synchronicity of meaning and relevance as you would in the random processing of color in a photography technique.
       
      [Maureen] That's good to know
       
      MEntity:
      Any creative and random process of synchronicity is beneficial for insight and meaning. It is a matter of assigning qualities to symbols, and then "reading" these.
       
      This is true of one's own practice in reading or seeing the Aura on his or her own.
       
      The imagination is essential here.
       
      [GeraldineB] As a minor aside, do those who run the Kirilian equipment know this to be fraudulent?
       
      MEntity: We would not consider it "fraudulent" as much as it is a flippant and eager desire for it to be valid by all involved. This is the modern equivalent of the "mood ring," which was once thought to have some relevant meaning, but was merely a response to one's physical body temperature. When it was thought that body temperature may be relative to certain moods, these colors held meaning.
       
      [GeraldineB] Maureen -- do you still want the Roles' Aura info?
       
      [Maureen] Yes I do! But Michael may want to do that as they go along?
       
      MEntity:
      Mood Rings are valid in that they can convey in color the range of temperature of the skin contact, and in much the same way these photographic techniques are portraying an effect in the process as it reacts to certain stimuli.
       
      Mood Rings and "aura photography" would do well to be considered novelties for insight, no different from the depth of insight that a "Magic 8 Ball" can bring, even if all of these are potentially valid for helping bring insight or help in making a decision.
       
      To elaborate upon this for a moment:
       
      Because these systems are based in randomness and synchronicity, it is vital that one have a clear system in place for how to use them.
       
      For example, even a "Magic 8 Ball" can be useful for helping you to make a decision, but only if you set up a system for synchronicity, such as "I will shake it only once for insight," or "I will shake it 3 times." If you continued to shake it, you may get any number of responses, in much the same way that shuffling a deck of cards will tend to bring you different cards. There must be a structure for the synchronicity.
       
      So if you choose to use a system of synchronicity for checking in on your aura and chakras, it is helpful to have a structure in place that is clear to you.
       
      [Maureen] It is interesting to me -- that my "colours" did correspond to the "system" that I learned years ago through Geraldine Smith- Stringer. So you may be on to something Michael! LOL
       
      MEntity: We may be.
       
      [Maureen] 🙂
       
      MEntity: Your system is quite clear in many ways.
       
      [Maureen] and what I got -- did relate to what we talked about the day before. Very interesting
       
      MEntity:
      Maureen, you have worked with synchronicity for a long time. It would not surprise us that there would be relevance.
       
      Continuing...
       
      [Maureen] well -- this has put everything upside down -- in a good way!
       
      MEntity:
      There are consistent frequencies that are inherent in the auras of each Role, which can then be "seen" or translated from the aura while in the Physical Plane.
       
      For most, the Aura is not something that will ever be seen, but it is still tangible to most in some way.
       
      Most of what is experienced as the Aura is the Emotional Body, and so it goes that most who experience the Aura in tangible ways is through the emotions.
       
      This means that most tangible relevance of the Aura comes among people through the spectrum that is of the Inspirational.
       
      The more resonant an aura to your own, the more inspired, enthused, attracted. The more dissonant the aura from your own, the more reduced those qualities.
       
      Most relationships of any significance are based in that spectrum of the aura, or emotional bodies, and how those resonate, far more than any other common ground.
       
      This is why one can be friends, or feel close to, even those who do not hold the same perspectives, philosophies, or physical characteristics and actions. Your auras are compatible, resonant. Or put another way: your emotional bodies, or what inspires you, is resonant.
       
      This emotional body, or the aura that is most often relevant, is a result of interaction between the Personality and Essence via the Chakras.
       
      The body is manifest and sustained via these portals, if you will.
       
      The physical body is a final emission, rather than the aura, or emotional body, but the emotional body is the most flexible common ground for all of the bodies.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] Michael, you said that the astral or emotional body is reflective of the emotional state and because of that can vary and change on a constant basis. Wouldn't that make relationships instable and volatile?
       
      MEntity:
      It could be said that the Causal (intellectual) Body is Essence, the Emotional/Astral Body is the Role, and the Physical Body is Personality.
       
      This then reflects the meeting ground between Essence and Personality in the Role.
       
      Nadine, we will respond to your question in a moment, as what we have to say next may address it.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] okay
       
      MEntity:
      There are 3 "layers" to the Emotional Body of significance: that layer that reflects the consistency and evolution of the Essence Role; that layer that reflects the realm of relationships and social agreements; and that layer that reflects the processes of the Personality.
       
      These layers cannot be compartmentalized, of course, but they are distinct enough to describe in this way.
       
      The Personality layer is as private as one wishes for it to be, in much the same way that anything about you can be.
       
      This layer fluctuates greatly, depending on your processes.
       
      These layers might be referred to as the Personal, Public, and True layers.
       
      The Public layer is where Agreements are made, is how one chooses to present his or her negotiated and navigated processes from the Personal layer, and tend to be more stable.
       
      The Personal layer can reflect the health of the body, whereas the Public can reflect the health of relationships.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] well, that would answer my question
       
      MEntity:
      These layers are also why there are Private and Public sets of Overleaves.
       
      The "True" layer is reflective of the Role in Essence.
       
      This is the backdrop for the other layers, or the more encompassing layer.
       
      True > Public > Personal > Body
       
      The True layer carries with it the frequency that is relative to the Role, and each Role is consistent in frequency, or color wave (as interpreted within the visible spectrum of the Physical Plane body).
       
      This frequency is relative to the primary portal, or chakra, for the Essence to manifest through the Physical Plane.
       
      Server - Instinctive - Red
      Artisan - Sexual - Orange
      Warrior - Solar Plexus - Yellow
      Scholar - Heart - Green
      Sage - Throat - Blue
      Priest - Brow - Indigo
      King - Crown - Violet
       
      It may occur to some that the Scholar "should be" the assimilative/instinctive, while the Server "should be" of the Heart, but this is not the case.
       
      This is because, as we have already established, the Emotional realm is the best meeting ground for all bodies, and Scholars know this.
       
      And Servers must have access to the very basic needs of any individual or group at any given time, and this is most easily accessed through the Instinctive Center, or Root Chakra.
       
      It would be rare for even the most "gifted" of those who read auras to, literally, see the True layer, but it can be read in the Public and Personal layers, if looked for.
       
      Essence Recognition, however, happens in this layer.
       
      When you "remember" someone, or "just know" that you already know someone, you are responding to the resonance that has been established in the True, or Essence, layer.
       
      When one dies, and the Physical Body is released, these layers of the Emotional Body continue.
       
      This emotional body is the meeting ground of all of your Personalities across time, then.
       
      Each new lifetime and Personality adds to this body.
       
      The most differentiated layer is the Personal, but the Public is shared across those lifetimes of resonance, and become what you consider your "past lives" when you "remember" one.
       
      We will pause here for a moment to ask if our students are feeling a sense of validity to this exploration of the aura, and the relevance of the Emotional Body.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] yes, I do.
       
      [Diane_HB] Yes
       
      [Maureen] I think I will draw a diagram so I will get a better picture of it! but yes -- it's coming to me
       
      MEntity: With some examination, you may find it is quite consistent with a great deal of what has come to be explored in our system, and sheds light on some long-established elements.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] I have a question about the public layer being shared across lifetimes:
       
      [GeraldineB] I have questions about the emotional body -
       
      [Nadine_AP2] as one shares this layer with ones future lives, too, would one be able to "remember" future lives, too?
       
      MEntity:
      Yes.
       
      It would be more accurate to say "potential future lives," as from any given point in time, the "future" is not set, even if it has already happened.
       
      [GeraldineB] That makes no sense, Michael
       
      [Diane_HB] LOL
       
      MEntity:
      For example: "you" are here, now, in "the future" of a past version of you in this lifetime. Therefore, "you" have "already happened." That does not mean that a past version of "you" will make the choices that lead to "you."
       
      You are only the potential for the past.
       
      [Maureen] that makes sense
       
      [Nadine_AP2] I think I get it.
       
      MEntity:
      Think of it this way:
       
      At any given moment, you are at the hub of potential, both in past and future terms. Your memories are an organization of events that are relevant to you at that moment, but are not necessarily linear to you, but may have come from various versions of you in the past. Some memories are from a consistent and rather linear timeline, some are not.
       
      [GeraldineB] Ok -- I'm slowly discovering this aspect with the project
       
      MEntity: The same is true of your imagination for the future. It is a spectrum of possibilities that can only snap into shape once "you get there." But, there are many versions of you that will get into your future, just as there are many versions of you that are your past.
       
      [Maureen] I love this!
       
      [GeraldineB] "will get there" is not the same thing as "already has been there"
       
      [Maureen] The plastic metaphysical man
       
      MEntity:
      So when you "remember" or imagine the future, you are tapping into some of the most relevant probabilities, and this can tend to happen the strongest when that "you" in the future is remembering "you." There is a resonance.
       
      We realize this can be complicated to comprehend, but we assure you that your Essence manages this much better than any one Personality.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] Lol, I can imagine that!
       
      [GeraldineB] That is very good -- Essence is a far better switchboard operator than I
       
      MEntity:
      What we have been sharing with each of you is mostly about the functioning and technical aspects of the aura.
       
      What we will do now is share with you what we see as the most practical ways to use this information:
       
      To learn to "read" your aura, we suggest implementing a synchronistic system, as mentioned before. Using Tarot Cards, a set of cards of color, or any other system of insight, can be helpful for looking at your personal layer of the aura.
       
      Creating a clear structure for that synchronicity is vital, so it would do you well to have your techniques clarified before using these systems.
       
      Paying attention to your feelings can help you to have the most direct insight as to what is going on in your Personal layer of the aura.
       
      Establish color associations with your feelings, or look up systems that associate colors with feelings, and learn to manage these with your imagination.
       
      By this we mean that you can help yourself adjust your emotions to be more manageable if you learn the hues and tones that help transform them.
       
      For instance, Red might be what you associate with Anger, so you might imagine adjusting the darker Red of anger to being a more pleasant hue and tone, so that it is brighter, lighter, and provoking of a more productive emotion.
       
      The reason this can be helpful is because if the management of emotion is within the same color range, it is not a denial of the original feeling, but a way to move it into something more like a positive pole.
       
      If you feel sadness and have associated this with a dark blue, you may adjust the color to that which provokes a different feeling of calm and peace.
       
      It is never beneficial to ignore, suppress, or deny any feeling, but if one can move that feeling into something useful, the more "negative" feeling gains usefulness rather than simply being a weight or pressure.
       
      Most "negative" feelings are born of helplessness, so to transform that feeling into something useful helps that negative feeling to have been informative, instead of debilitating.
       
      [Maureen] Michael -- will you be covering the Causal (Intellectual) Body today? and if there is time -- would you be able to do a summary of what was covered today?
       
      MEntity: You may not be able to see this in your aura, but that is moot. You need not literally see it to know its impact. One cannot see a soul, either, but it is in effect, regardless.
       
      [Maureen] I like your system of "managing" or transforming emotions rather than suppressing them. It is most helpful.
       
      MEntity:
      That process is not magical, and can take practice, but it can be quite effective. In most cases, at first, one might realize just how attached one is to a feeling, and how unwilling one might be to let it transform, but once one has done so once or twice, the benefits become more apparent.
       
      Absurdly surreal symbolism in dreams is another way to tap into your Personal layer of the aura. Learning to interpret those symbols in the dream can lend great insight into what is going on for you in the aura.
       
      Dreams that tend to have a lot of interaction and communication, even if in the midst of surreal symbolism, are often reflective of the Public layer of the emotional body. Working out Karma and Agreements often happens in dreams, then.
       
      Checking in with the health of your relationships can also help you to gain insight into what is going on with your Public layer.
       
      If there is a lot of dissonance and distance, your Public layer may be in a protective or defensive state, which keeps people at bay, or attracts those attracted to dissonance.
       
      If there is a receptiveness in this layer, it would tend to be reflected in your capacity to find common ground with even the most unfamiliar, distant, and even dissonant of peoples, while holding great appreciation for those who resonate.
       
      Many of our students relate almost entirely from this layer, as it helps to transcend distance and time.
       
      [Maureen] I can see that -- for many of us
       
      MEntity:
      For those who begin to Manifest Essence, then the True layer, or the Essence layer comes into play.
       
      For those who wish to see the effects of this, it tends to show up in what is provoked from others. For instance, Sages tend to help provoke expression, communication, and active use of the Throat Chakra and all that this entails. Priests tend to help provoke inspirational vision, intuition, and active use of the Brow Chakra and all that this entails. Warriors tend to provoke the action, stimulation, productivity, and active use of the Solar Plexus Chakra and all that this entails. And so on.
       
      When one is Manifesting Essence, one tends to be attractive to those who want the effects of that Role, and are attracted to those Roles who help to bring benefit to what one wishes to enhance.
       
      For example, if a Manifested Priest and Sage are attracted to one another (and by "attracted" we do not imply sexual or romantic attraction), then it might show up as the Priest gaining more beneficial access to her communication set of skills while the Sage gains more beneficial access to intuitive and visionary perceptions.
       
      These can show up as obvious benefit, or show up as challenges that bring that eventual benefit.
       
      Watching how one feels one is benefited by another, or how one benefits someone else, can help to give you an idea of to what degree you are Manifesting Essence, and in True Personality.
       
      This does not mean you will always get along, but the benefit is there in some way, to some degree, and it is usually fairly specific.
       
      Much of what we had to say can be said at any other time, as we focused today on our response to the question presented for this exchange. We will not address the Causal Body here, or synopsize, as time is limited. But we feel that the question dove-tailed quite beneficially to all that we might have to say about the nature and concept of the aura.
       
      Good day to each of you. We must conclude here for now.

      Note from (presumably) Geraldine:
      I recommend rereading the OMW: Your Turning Points, which contains the information on our multiple bodies.
       
      During further research, I discovered the following video which isn't about auras, per se, but really deals with many of the modern illnesses for humans and the animal kingdoms. It's worth a viewing and a contemplation as we may be causing much of our ongoing "stress" issues completely inadvertently due to our desire for instant.
       
      Resonance - Beings of Frequency (documentary film)
          Colors Meditation, Aura, and Healing Levels
      Reality Creator Reference Book
      This article is from the Hermes Reality Creator Series Books and or upcoming books.
      It is © copyright 1995 - 2012 by Tom DeLiso / Hermes Trismegistus.
      Please follow the copyright link for additional copyright information.   The Meditation/Dream level helps you to understand a color or a colored object seen in a dream or meditation. The Aura level helps you to understand the purpose of that color within the human energy field. The Healing level is the way the color works when applied to healing the body or spirit.   WHITE Meditation/Dream: Truth of the highest order. Enlightenment. Energy in its most pure form. Divinity.
      Aura: Never a predominate color in the aura unless you are looking at an angel or an ascended master. However a white layer in the aura or a layer with white streaks indicates a person following the will of God and being directed by it.
      Healing: Charging the energy field, bringing peace and comfort, divine light or whole white light entering.
       
      VIOLET

      Meditation/Dream: Conjures feelings of enchantment, wishes fulfilled, of dreams made fact. Transformation of the self or of some aspect of your life into a higher form. Connecting to your higher self. The "I am God" presence.
      Aura: This color in the aura is the highest vibration for the human spirit. A person who is in command of his life and energy. A visionary. Violet with a gold outline is a person who is one with spirit and God and is in service to mankind.
      Healing: Connecting to spirit, the opening of the third eye, the clearing of the head, purging the auric field of distortions.
       
      BLUE

      Meditation/Dream: Blue is the energy of pacification, self protection, sweetness and tenderness, and of loyalty. It represents contentment and reunion with the Earth. 
      Aura: Blue in the aura represents a teacher or a very sensitive person. They are kind and caring and will do much to help others grow.
      Healing: Cooling, calming, restructuring of the etheric level, taking away pain when doing deep tissue work and work on bone cells. Blue also helps to expand a person's field to connect to his/her life task.
       
      GREEN

      Meditation/Dream: Taken most directly from nature, these hues often are expressive of constancy, self-affirmation, security, self-esteem, and of deeply rooted pride. A healing meditation may contain green, as it is the color of new growth.
      Aura: Green in the aura signals a very intellectual person who may possess healing gifts. At the very least it signals a nurturer personality and one that will do what they can to make another comfortable.
      Healing: Charging the heart chakra, balancing the aura, general healing, sometimes charging the aura to ensure well being and health, and to remove illness.
       
      YELLOW

      Meditation/Dream: Representative of cheerfulness, radiance, relaxation and release from burdens. It is warmth of sunlight, the halo around the Holy Grail. Yellow is hope.
      Aura: Yellow, like green also signals a very intellectual person, but this person does not possess healing gifts. They are powerful thinkers, and idea makers.
      Healing: Charging the brow chakra, clearing a foggy head.
       
      ORANGE

      Meditation/Dream: Symbolic of fire, of expanding energy, power and the omnipotence of the sun and the majesty of sunsets. Energy to accomplish one's goals.
      Aura: A very ambitious person who needs to succeed and has the energy to do so.
      Healing: Charging the auric field, increasing sexual potency, increasing the immunity system.
       
      ROSE

      Meditation/Dream: In meditation or dreams represents self-love, also resurrection. The color of flesh, of sensuality and emotion, romantic love, and supportive love.
      Aura: A person in-love with another or in-love with one's created environment.
      Healing: Subtle healing and love. This energy puts back a sense of self love and self worth.
       
      RED

      Meditation/Dream: Red represents the will to achieve, energy, intensity, and struggle. It is also appetite, desire, and reproduction. It is life in the "now."
      Aura: People with mostly red in their aura are fiery spontaneous people. They are often fearless, or appear that way. Red's make good police and firemen and soldiers. Red will also be found in the normal aura for brief periods during great anger or passion.
      Healing: Supercharging the auric field, burning out cancer, warming cold areas.
       
      GOLD

      Meditation/Dream: Divinity transforming lower energy to upper energy. Spiritual power in all aspects operating for the greater good.
      Aura: Gold in the aura is rarely a predominate color, however you can find it as an outline to another color, like violet. Gold as an outline in the aura adds the dimension of spiritual nobility and rank, a person that has and is achieving great spiritual progress and work.
      Healing: The restructuring of the seventh layer of the aura (the God self).
       
      GRAY

      Meditation/Dream: Grey in a dream or meditation signals excessive energy being burnt off. it is also a lifting of intense fear or some life-threatening situation.
      Aura: A person whose life-force is leaking away due to unhappiness, sadness, depression, or illness. With the color black a person with advanced cancer.
      Healing: Only used during a healing when excessive energy must be removed because the person can't handle it.
       
      BLACK

      Meditation/Dream: In the shinny black variety it is a closing in of energy and resource to protect oneself. The velvet or shinny black is not a negative color to get in a meditation, especially if you are feeling burnt out. A velvet black light opens up the Aura so that it can accept higher colors.
      Aura: A dull lifeless black in the aura shows a person who is very far removed from the constructive forces of the universe. With the grey streaks, it shows a person being destroyed by his or her own separation from God. Note: Wearing black is very common and it opens up the human aura to all the other colors. Many students of the occult like to wear black for this reason. Wearing black also protects your energy from leaking out to others.
      Healing: The velvet black color is used to bring a patient into the state of grace, silence, and peace with God.
       
      SILVER
       
      Meditation/Dream: Silver relates to the moon, the subconscious, and the female aspect of the universe.
      Aura: Not a color usually present in the aura in any great quantity.
      Healing: Used to purge the auric field and to charge the sixth level of being (karmic level), to remove old karma that is no longer needed.
       
      INDIGO

      Meditation/Dream: Purple or indigo in a dream or meditation signals some kind of psychic power or ability or some kind of psychic force.
      Aura: In the aura shows a very intuitive person, a person with prepackaged abilities that come from before birth to be used physically in this incarnation. These people tend to be square pegs as far as society and fitting in is concerned. This will change as more of the current generation is born with this color and takes its place in society.
      Healing: The opening up of intuition or of some psychic ability. It is also used to prepare the individual of the entering of the divine spirit.
       
      CRYSTAL

      Meditation/Dream: Transformation into a new form or a higher energy state. Crystals amplify and a crystal light will amplify your own energy to a higher level.
      Aura: A crystal aura around a person is clear but will have other colors intermingled with it. This is the 'chameleon' aura. People with this aura will take on the attitudes and ways of those around them. The aura of others becomes their own aura. It is important for these crystal people to only surround themselves with the best influences possible, for obvious reasons. A person with a crystal aura must learn how to separate themselves from everybody else.
      Healing: Sometimes used to fill in an empty spot where some energy was removed, so that nothing unwanted takes it place, till the person's energy field can replace the vacuum with its own energy field.

      Self-Karma
       
      MEntity:
      Despite the complexities that can be involved in Self-Karma, the actual concept, exploration, and resolution are quite simple. That is not to say that the process is "easy," but that describing these elements is fairly simple.

      First, we will define Karma as "any form of intensity (imbalance) as a result of interference to your capacity for Choice." Interference of Choice is not the only criteria for generating Karma. There must be an intensity, or imbalance, generated from at least one party, and most-often the party who suffered the loss of Choice.

      The sudden increase for capacity of Choice is also a form of Karma, if intensity is generated. We describe this as Philanthropic Karma, and this form of Karma "feels good," but it is Karma, nonetheless, as it interfered with Choice and generated intensity.

      When Karma is generated, "Ribbons" are formed as a means to track those intensities. Those Ribbons connect among the Instinctive Centers of all who are involved. It might be more accurate to describe these as "tuned frequencies" that do not lose track of the members of that frequency, but we feel that "ribbons" is easier to image.

      The resolution of Karma is in the "burning" of the "ribbon," or neutralizing that frequency.

      The burning of ribbons is always done through role reversal, either with the parties from each side reversing positions, or from the party who generated the karma reversing his or her own actions that generated the Karma.

      A simplified example of each might be: Reversing Positions = you kill someone, that someone kills you. Reversing Actions = you kill someone, you then save that someone in a later life.

      We realize that we have been sharing the details about our perception of Karma, but this is helpful in understanding your Self-Karma because much of the same dynamic applies.

      We will define Self-Karma as being "a dual position within that interferes with your own capacity for Choice, and generates intensity, or imbalance." Often these are also described as "Issues."

      ALL Self-Karma is contained within a single lifetime and does not carry over in the same way that Ribbons do among fragments. Self-Karma is generated by the Personality within the lifetime. However, Self-Karma can show up as patterns for an Essence, because Essence designs each Personality, and often the patterns of exploration sought by Essence generates similar opportunities across lifetimes for each Personality that tends toward certain Self-Karmic issues. If a Personality resolves his or her Self-Karma within a lifetime, that Self-Karma is usually not repeated, because Essence then has a completed set of new data from which to use for creating a lifetime. Since Essence learns through Personality, it can only progress beyond certain Self-Karmic patterns when a Personality finally figures out how to resolve the issue. That is not to say that a pattern does not repeat, but that it is rarely repeated. When we say that it is not repeated, we are speaking about a specific Self-Karma, but that issue may be a part of a larger category of Self-Karma, which we will explain in a moment.

      If you are alive, you most-likely have Self-Karma. Self-Karma is so common a development among Personalities that even the hosts for the Transcendental and Infinite Souls carried Self-Karma. However, in the cases of Transcendental and Infinite Soul hosts, the Self-Karma is always resolved within the lifetime.

      Self-Karma is generated in four categories of your life, which mirror the Axes of our Overleaf System. It would be more accurate to say that Self-Karma is generated in one or more of your four "bodies" that mirror the Axes of our Overleaf System: your Intellectual, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual/Instinctive Bodies. These categories can help you to identify your Self-Karma by where, how, and when you find yourself divided in a way that interferes with your capacity for Choice.

      Self-Karma is often paralyzing in its effects. When we say "paralyzing," we include those uncontrollable compulsions that force a choice even when you "know" is not a choice you would prefer to make. We include non-choice, refusal to choose, or the fear to choose, as a means to suspend yourself between two or more choices, as forms of paralyzing.

      What we will share now is a simple exercise for identifying your Self-Karma in a way that allows for tangibility so that resolution can be made, if you choose to pursue such an endeavor.

      Draw up a chart in a way that creates the four categories, or bodies: Intellectual, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual.

      With merely a glance at your life, considering each category, it might be fairly easy to identify at least one Self-Karma from each category.

      You could translate each category into a way to help your examination, such as: Expression, Inspirational, Action, and Assimilliation areas of your life. Assimilation might be better understood as your "Learning" or "Comprehension," or the "Lessons" are of life.

      Another translation: my world view; my relationships; my body; my spirit.

      Questions to pose for each category, regardless of how one translates that category might sound something like:
      "What do I get the most upset about in this category?"
      Or "In this category, what experience repeats for me that keeps me from making the choices I want to make?"
      Or "In this category, where do I wish something else would change before I can make a choice that I prefer?"
      Or "In this category, to what do I tend to overreact?"
      Or "In this category, what triggers reaction in me?"
      Or "What frustrates me the most about myself, others, life in this category?"

      At first, your examination may bring up broad categories, and that is a good place to start, but you would eventually want to narrow it down to specific triggers or situations. For instance, you may feel that issues of INJUSTICE is a large context that carries triggers for you, but upon closer inspection, you may find that you are really only triggered when someone does not comply to your way of thinking, or agree with you, or celebrate your passionate stance with the same passion. This might indicate that your issues are not so much about Injustice, but about "Being Right" or "Being Superior."

      Once one has identified a Self-Karma, then the work of resolution can begin. Resolution is found when there is no longer a sense of division, and your choice is completely owned by you. We will give a very simple example:

      A fragment identifies that she has "issues" with her body image, detailing that she feels ugly because she does not lose weight, but does not do the work of losing that weight. This would fall under BODY, or Physical. The broader category would be "Body Image," but she might find she is triggered in instances where she is going to be social or intimate.

      Her Self-Karma then might be the division within that says she is beautiful just as she is, as long as no one sees her. Being "Beautiful As I Am" means to her to never having that concept challenged, so she remains isolated and secluded to sustain that version of herself. Being "As Beautiful as Others Prefer" would mean shaping the body into a new form, which means exercise, diet, and patience, but this is in conflict with "Beautiful As I Am," and to follow through in that direction might mean she really is not beautiful as she is, so reprimanding, self-punishment, self-hate, repulsion replace diet, exercise, and patience. She remains at home, or secretly isolated internally, even when in social situations.

      The resolution would come only when she MAKES THE CHOICE in one direction or the other, and allows herself to own that choice. If she chooses to "Be Beautiful As I Am" then it would require the work of self-acceptance, self-kindness, accentuating all that is felt to be beautiful, internally and externally, and to build upon that. She would celebrate the beautiful in those people and things that she knows as beautiful beyond any standard in entertainment or social media. She would allow for all forms of beauty, knowing that this is a subjective matter, and never something that can be standardized.

      If she chooses to "Be as Beautiful as Others Prefer," then she would own the steps necessary to go down that path, and begin a commitment to exercise, diet, patience, and a reality-check that she cannot transform her body to be exactly as someone else's, but that she can make it the best it can be. She would embrace the fact that she may not please everyone, but focus on moving her body into a state that is pleasing to herself. She is simply taking care of herself.

      In short: the Self-Karma is a division that could be described as "Accept my self as I am/Improve upon my self-image." The resolution is to choose one of those and to own all that goes along with that choice.

      The irony is that in the commitment to one or the other, BOTH are ultimately included; hence the resolution. Neither side of the division is left behind.

      Accepting yourself as you are automatically includes an upgrade to your self image. Improving upon your self-image automatically brings a kindness to the process that is an acceptance for who you are all along the way of your improvement. Improving yourself in your own eyes automatically improves your representation of yourself to others, thus improving yourself in their eyes, as well. Improving yourself in a way that others may find appealing often leads to clarity about what must be improved in your own eyes.

      When choosing a direction for commitment to resolution, it is often more beneficial and efficient to choose the direction over which you have the most control. For instance, taking the route of "Accept Myself As I Am" is far more within the control of that person than if she were to entirely depend upon the external factors for gauging her progress. Both paths could work, but this is why many teachings encourage one to start with the self, since that is where one has the most control, and is almost always guaranteed success. Choosing to go in a direction of lesser control that requires others to comply to your ideal is still a valid path, but a more complicated and challenging path, with less-likely successes.

      The more time and care given to your examination of your Self-Karma, the more quickly and easily the resolution might come because the solutions are often within the issue, itself.
       
      **************Q&A***************
      Are there different gemstones with their frequencies that might be utilized to help neutralize the energies of these four self-karma categories?
       
      MEntity:
      If it is understood that these gemstones are merely a supportive energy, and not an energy that actually does the work for you, then there are stones that might help some fragments receptive to that energy. To understand how these work, it might be helpful to think of each gemstone as being a light of specific color, and when that light is shined into your space, it can highlight certain things. It is not that the stone is actually "doing" anything other than being itself. A flashlight in the dark is not magic, but it can certainly improve one's capacity for seeing. And so it is with such tools as gemstones.

      With that being understood, the most common stones available for helping support in the process of Self-Karma might be:

      Rose Quartz or Pyrite for Physical/Body Issues
      Amethyst Quartz or Citronite for World View/Intellectual/Expression issues
      Tourmaline or Jades for various Learning/Comprehension/Instinctive Issues
      Tiger's Eye or Azurites for Emotional/Relationship Issues

      These stones may help to highlight the areas prone to opportunities for resolution, but they will not resolve the issues for you, or soothe them.

      There is validity to frequencies generated from inanimate objects, especially from those directly of the planet, but as with any tool, it is what you do with them that makes the difference, not necessarily the properties of that object. A hammer is just a hammer until one picks it up to use with intent, and that intent can have a multitude of outcomes.

      How do you deal with cases where manifesting is involved and appears to interfere with the resolution? For example: If the woman above decides to get in shape, but then injures herself or gets into a car accident that hurts her back. How to avoid or get past that? I see it a lot.

      MEntity:
      The Self-Karma would remain, as well as the resolution, regardless of circumstances along the way. To make this clearer, we will use an example of a man who has lost his legs who feels he is worthless without being able to walk. The Self-Karma is not in whether he can walk, or not, but in how he experiences whether he can walk, or not. If he is divided to such an extent that it paralyzes his capacity for choice, then he has generated Self-Karma. If he embraces his experience, or if he commits to rising above it, then the Self-Karma is resolved.

      For the woman who has hurt her back after committing to improving the health of her body, she can still commit to the improvement of her health and body.

      When a commitment in one direction of resolution comes with great obstacles, or surprise obstacles, or challenges, the commitment itself must inherently make room for all of the possibilities of that path, or it is not a commitment.

      Is there a way of avoiding or lessening the chances of that happening in the first place? It seems to me that it happens when someone forces themselves towards one choice without being ready?

      You are correct that "forcing a choice" is still included in Self-Karma, as we described it as a compulsion. And that is a good point for differentiation:

      Resolution comes from EMBRACING YOUR CHOICE, not FORCING your choice. Forcing a choice leads to complications that compound the Self-Karma. Embracing a choice means absolute permission to explore that choice on your own terms at your own pace, and with an invitation to Essence, your friends, your loved ones for support in that choice.

      Forcing a choice is usually marked by intensity and often secrecy.

      Embracing a choice is usually marked by a gentleness and an openness without shame.

      That is not to say that embracing a choice would avoid any surprises, but that embracing a choice inherently brings the strength of adaptability.

      In addressing self-karma through another channel once, you told me to consider my greatest concern in life and I'll be on my way to identifying my self-karma... then you asked me "how satisfied are you with your response to friendship". Would you elaborate a little more on the why of that particular question and how it relates to my self-karma?

      MEntity: For examination on a broader level, we would ask about the "greatest concern in life," and this would allow one to find his or her most pressing issue/s. Following this with a question about relationships would help to identify a category. That question would have been asked if we suspected it may be helpful to look into your Emotional or Relationship Category for refinement of that exploration.

      Thank you, good evening! Could you please give an example of, and resolution to, a spiritual self karma? Would perfectionism be a spiritual self karma?

      MEntity:
      A broad example of a Spiritual/Instinctive Self-Karma might be those issues associated with Guilt and Shame. A specific Spiritual Self-Karma within Guilt or Shame might be in the experience of being an Old Soul among family members who are Baby and Young, and having to deal with this in a way that does not leave you feeling divided between "being yourself" and "compromising just to keep the peace." In that case, the choice would be between "being yourself" and letting others deal with that, or "Compromising to keep the peace" as a means of dealing with it on your own. The resolution would be in the fact that regardless of which choice you make, you are ALWAYS "yourself," and no context changes that, regardless of the facet you choose to bring forth appropriately or strategically.

      In an example you gave, - which is EXACTLY me, lol, and started with back injuries, are both options you gave equally valid for truly resolving the issue? Using that example, what happens if you improve yourself and then later on you end up backsliding or being injured, etc and are once again feeling overweight and unattractive? It seems like loving yourself as you are resolves the situation, whereas changing your body, while healthier physically, could be undone.

      Self-Karmic resolution is immediate and permanent and not based upon conditions. If the motivations for improving upon the body as a path to resolution is conditional upon reaching some conclusive state that will only THEN be satisfied, then it is merely a perpetuation of the Self-Karma. If one were to choose to improve upon the body as a means for reaching a state considered "beautiful," it would have to include kindness, patience, and a devotion to the self in a way that naturally translates into "beautiful as you are along the way." The embrace of the commitment to improve upon the body as a means to reach a greater state of beauty would mean that you are merely at one point in that spectrum of beauty, rather than its needing a finish line to cross.

      Another way to understand when one is in Resolution is when you know your choice is because you WANT to make that choice, not because you feel you HAVE to make that choice.

      "I HAVE to make this choice if I want to be beautiful" is not a choice that resolves Self-Karma. "I HAVE to accept myself as I am in order to feel beautiful" is equally imprisoning. In this case, it would be helpful to understand that the ideal of beautiful cannot be reached without creating steps along the way that are seen as beautiful to you. Much like building a brick house, it must be completed brick by brick. It is never helpful to deny that it is a brick house simply because it is not to a point where you feel you can live in it. For instance, the simple decision to "try to like how I look today" is a beautiful decision. It may not stick, but for now, it is beautiful. The more "for now" moments of beauty you extract from your experiences will add to the materials that build your ideal structure of beauty. The decision not to eat a certain way for the day because you feel this contributes to your better health is a beautiful decision, even if you do not choose that the next day. For now, it is beautiful.

      Those simple moments build into a matrix that helps to generate moments that are far more pivotal toward resolution.

      So you often surround yourself with 'conditions' when you are experiencing self-karma?

      MEntity:
      Oh yes. Depending on the extent and depth of the Self-Karma, the more conditional your existence. "I can be beautiful as I am, as long as I am invisible." Those "conditions" generate a false reality, and that is what gets exhausting, not the actual process of resolution. Sustaining a false reality as a means to balance the divisions within is literally exhausting. All Self-Karma can be resolved in an instant once the truth of the absolute superficiality and uselessness is comprehended.

      ALL Self-Karma are simply forms of self-discipline that have gone awry in the self-parenting process. Or put another way, generated during the Third Internal Monad.

      Is the majority of self-karma generated during or through the 3rd IM or are their other times/experiences that generate a certain amount of self-karma as well?

      MEntity: Self-Karma is almost entirely generated during the Third Internal Monad, and complicated or refined over the rest of the life. For instance: there may be the experience of being rejected based on appearance, which prompts one to be very concerned about appearance, which then becomes a divide within that acceptance is based heavily upon appearance, which then becomes specific to certain body parts, or spreads to include the entire body.

      So it might be useful looking at the experiences surrounding the 3rd IM in order to help identify some of the behaviours that are self-karmic? Find their genesis, so to speak, and understanding what has given rise to them, be able to put them into a more proper perspective?

      MEntity:
      It is not necessary to understand from where or when these were generated. It will never matter where or when these were generated, as it is the current "you" who make the choices now. It would be similar to trying to understand when, where, and why you have brown hair. It does not matter. You have the choice to embrace that color, or to change it.

      We pointed out the time frame of origin as a means to point out that many of these issues are "teen age" or "young soul" levels of issues, or even younger, and that their bearing has little validity or relevance to you as an adult or older soul.

      Self-karma is created by ourselves and not circumstances or others...

      MEntity: Correct. It is created when one interferes with one's own choices to the point that it generates a divide within.

      Thanks Michael. You've touched on some of this already, but here's my original question/s: Could you comment on how Self Karma tends to be experienced across all soul ages, or is it more likely to be confronted by us as we mature in soul age?

      MEntity: If you are alive, you most likely experience Self-Karma. Most Self-Karma is relative to the predominant Soul Age for your planet, or your current society within which you were nurtured.

      So there are links to Social/Cultural soul age?
      Relative...?

      MEntity:
      All Soul Ages experience Self-Karma, but it is true that there are emphases within each: Infant and Old tend toward Spiritual Issues; Baby tends toward Intellectual/Expression Issues; Young tends toward Physical/Body Issues; and Mature toward Emotional/Relationship Issues.

      Though Old tends toward Spiritual Issues, they are prone to taking on the predominant issues of the times, and can run that gamut of issues across the soul ages, depending on what is of interest for exploration that has never been resolved.

      Most Old Souls that we know of have yet to resolve Self-Karmic issues remembered from their Young Soul days and are finally "getting around to them" now. That is because the current society fully supports Young Soul issues involving appearance, body, health, etc. When most of you were in your Young Soul days, your "Baby" or Intellectual/Expression issues were most explored.

      We would also point out that now that the planet is technically Mature Soul, newer generations would generate their Self-Karma during the Fourth Internal Monad. In an Old Soul Society, these would be generated during the Fifth Internal Monad. The predominant Soul Age during the lifetime usually indicates when the Self-Karma is generated, and though it can also indicate what kind, it is not necessarily limited to that.

      Does this mean we would have to wait for society to catch up to work through mature and old soul issues?

      MEntity: No, we simply speak about the practicality of the times, since Self-Karma is generated and contained within the single Personality, which is most-often imprinted by the current society, but anyone can work on anything at any time.

      Oh, I misunderstood -- there are four categories of Self-Karma, but one only develops an issue within one category during any given lifetime?

      MEntity: No. The time frame for when they are usually generated is fairly consistent, and it can indicate the root of many issues, but could include issues from any category.

      In your response to another question, you mentioned that one must choose between being themselves and compromising to keep the peace. How do you accept that finding that compromise may never occur and to be accepting that your best attempts to rectify a situation will never be enough while accepting that the consequences of the failure of another will happen to them, without it creating the self-karma of guilt or shame? I seem to have this type of pattern repeating through the past five or ten years for me and I'd really like to break it somehow.

      MEntity:
      We see that is a helpful question that addresses the nature of resolution when it is valid. In this case, if one were to choose to compromise for the sake of keeping the peace and does not experience this compromise as an assault against one's being, but finds that compromise still does nothing, then the the point of Being Oneself is still intact, as it is clarified that no amount of compromise makes a difference, and that the issue was never about one's Being. From that space within the original resolution, it would be a matter of decisions based on what to do with these individuals, and not to do with oneself.

      This may lead to another layer of Self-Karma because it might get to the Self-Karma one might have about who "should love me, no matter what." Do you endure the suffering within their presence as a means to receive potential love, or do you remove yourself from those people who should love you.

      In short, it might move into issues about where love, and what love, is in your life. Is it more loving to remove yourself from the exhausting exchanges, or is it more loving to allow room for their lack of love for your presence as you choose to love anyway.

      In most instances where one feels one must continually endure the presence of another while feeling exhausted and even damaged, then the question is not about love, but about Rights.

      Could you explain further on your definition of Rights?

      MEntity: We will include our Map of Rights in the final transcript, but as an example: every fragment has the Right to Love and Be Loved, and this Right is either supported or removed in the process of a lifetime. So it might be a question of whether those who refuse to love have more of a right to your love than you do?

      Just curious about the obstacles to resolution of self-karma...what tends to keep us from resolving them? Are these obstacles different for the various soul ages?

      MEntity:
      The most-common obstacles to resolution are boredom, specialness, and crisis management:

      Boredom is the result of rejection of Essence, and like a dog with anxiety cut off from his sense of resource, can chew off his own skin to keep busy with distraction.

      Specialness is a result of rejection of Uniqueness, and spends all of its energy seeking constant external validation for any sense of value. Uniqueness requires nothing for it to Be; it is inherent. Specialness requires constant feedback.

      Crisis Management is a result of rejection, or distortion, of one's strengths gained over the lifetime. It becomes far more familiar and routine to manage crises, or patterns of issues, than it is to use those strengths for managing the creation of the life, and new patterns of freedom.

      Boredom is usually linked to Self-Destruction and Greed; Specialness to Self-deprecation and Arrogance; and Crises to Impatience and Martyrdom.

      Put another way, Boredom often perpetuates Intellectual issues; Specialness perpetuates Emotional issues; and Crises perpetuates Physical Issues.

      That is a generality, but it is fairly consistent, keeping in mind that there may be layers within a Self-Karma.

      Could you give an example of Crisis Management in the final transcript? I am not sure I understand that one.

      MEntity: We can give an example now: It is much more comforting and familiar to, say, manage the trauma and pain caused by your struggling to accept an invitation where you feel your appearance will be scrutinized, than to simply go, or not. Crisis Management vs Life Management. Crisis vs Choice. Crisis vs Creativity.

      Hello Michaels & Troy! Initially I wanted to ask WHY self-karma arises and why would we ever want to interfere with our own choices to the point of generating a divide, but I understand that the channel may be tired by now, so will ask instead if you could give an example of the most typical form of self-karma for an Old soul?

      MEntity:
      We can answer both: Why one generates Self-Karma is simple to understand if one does not see it as such an imposition, but as a process of learning that moves from the experience of duality and into the experience of a spectrum, or wholeness. In every instance of Self-Karma there is duality, and in every resolution there is a spectrum, or wholeness. Self-Karma generates from over-simplifying, and Resolution comes from embracing complexity. In every lifetime, every Personality is born an Infant Soul in perspective, and seeks to not only return to the greater perspective already reached in previous lives, but to exceed that. However, this process includes a process from Duality to Spectrum, so to speak, so none escape that process.

      There is no typical Self-Karma for the Old Soul. If the Old Soul lives in an Old Soul world, then the Self-Karma might tend toward Spiritual issues as "typical," but otherwise, the Self-Karma tends toward the predominant Soul Age of the planet or environment.

      However, for the sake of example, a "typical" Old Soul/Spiritual Issue could be said to be the resolution between the fact of the current Personality as it exists among all Personalities across time for Essence. Recognizing the profundity of how small one really is in the scheme of things while seeking to retain a sense of identity, contribution, and participation can be terrifying.

      This is why we say that Old Souls learn through Terror.

      [Michael_Entity] This is a difficult scenario to translate. There are no needs for physical eyes in the Causal Plane, therefore, as a human this “place” may still remain “invisible”. The closest scenario we can come to transferring the experience of the Causal to you is more in terms of your Intellectual “a-ha’s!”… the space where everything suddenly makes sense and is connected clearly.
       
      [nemo999] To me dreams are unclear and very hazy–what I picture as your plane of existence.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The Plane itself encompasses the Astral and the Physical, with the Astral and Physical simply being more condensed versions of the same energy. It would not be impossible then for you to experience Causality while Physical, but with a tremendous drop in frequency and in circles of realization.
       
      To describe it in Physical terms is not possible. It is intellectually based and therefore, as we said, those moments of clarity and insight become foundations and structures “here”.
       
      Take a moment one day and make a note of every person you pass; note that their life is filled, has its path and it crossed yours, briefly or deeply. Follow the thoughts that lead from each person and how they must move into spaces that you will never see, filling other lives as well, crossing other paths in brevity or depth. Continue this throughout your day in as solid a way as possible, retaining a count of each person and a brief inner comment on their reality. If you are able to do this for a full 24 hours and grasp the magnitude of your contact, crossings, connections, etc. You will have a moment where you have grasped a reflection of Causality.
       
      [nemo999] My picture is of dots of light, sort of a probability cloud of them.
       
      [Michael_Entity] A cloudy image will not suffice as a reflection; there would need to be comprehension. This is why it is a goal while Physical to BE Physical, not Causal. We note to you that you will have “plenty of time” to enjoy the Causal when you “get here”. We will still be “here” when you get here, in fact.
       
      [MaryBV] For the past couple of weeks, a small group of people have been working with Terri with Motherwave breathing exercises. It appears I have an energy block in my knees. Could Michael tell me what sorts of reasons energy can become bottled up in the body? What sorts of things might we do to keep our energy flowing unimpeded through the body?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We would not be able to comment on reasons for energy “blockages” with any meaning unless specifically about a person; the reasons are highly subjective. We can, however, say that on a larger scale this symbolizes where your FOCUS or LACK of focus is.
       
      The body is symbolic on a larger scale too, and the location has meaning. You would first determine whether this “blockage” is sensed as having “edges” or if it seems “muffled” and heavy. If it seems sharp or edged, this is an indication of having a seriously distracting FOCUS in that particular area of the life. If the energy seems muffled or cloudy and heavy, this is a serious LACK of attention in that area of the life.
       
      The KNEES are an area of the body where an individual deals with the false personality and Chief Feature. In examining this combined symbology, you may find you are either RESISTING looking at an area of the life being run by CF or currently in battle with the area of life run by CF. There are, of course, many other ways of perceiving the meaning of energy when sensed from an inner place, but this is our basic response.
       
      Do you have a further question about this? We will respond.
       
      [MaryBV] Is it usually this life that causes the energy to become bottled up, or does past life play a part? How does one know?
       
      [Michael_Entity] That is a subtle difference. We suggest that if it is coming up, it is certainly relevant within the present life somehow, regardless of past life associations. Each life has its own set of tools and parameters, even if some of its impetus and motivation stem from the “past”. It is always most meaningful to search your present first. The “past” may make more sense of its intensity or history, broadening the contexts, but only THIS life will find its solution.
       
      [mamajo] A while back in public chat, you said that to connect with the energy of our entity, we should try to visualize a “Michael central” in a type of meeting house. When I did this, I connected directly with your channel Otterly (who is an entity mate of mine), could you re-define the process for me, perhaps I was doing it wrong.
       
      [Michael_Entity] Are you speaking of connecting with your own entity, or us?
       
      [mamajo] Well, the context I understood it to be was my own entity, which would allow sharing and learning to take place. I’m not referring to channeling per-se, just connecting to the energy stream to aid in learning. I think I understood it to be analogous to astral school to be.
       
      [Michael_Entity] In either case, you were not “doing it wrong”. In fact, what you have energetically and symbolically deemed Otterly IS a “type of meeting house”. You can be more specific in your design, changing this to a literal visual house, or allow your inner picture to be what is more easily recognizable as a resource. By connecting to “Otterly”, this symbol can act as a very meaningful conduit, in this case for your own Entity OR in connection with us (since Otterly is connected to both). If you are distracted by your symbol of the “meeting house”, it is up to you to simply change that symbol. Otherwise, it is valid.
       
      [mamajo] Ok, so I didn’t do it wrong then, I thought I had done a “bad thing” there impinging on a “person's energy place”.
       
      [Michael_Entity] That is not a possibility. When you “call” on someone, even if specifically, the aspect you call to you, the energy that makes that up, is but an extension of the energy, specifically for you. It has no bearing on the core source and its experience of itself. This is why it is possible to dream of someone intimately without that dream being “shared” or remembered together and how you can “meet” Astrally without both having to be asleep.
       
      [Peepo] Why is the period of history we are living in like that of Caesar Augustus?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      There are many parallels to that time frame, from the dynamics of Government to the culture, from the distribution of wealth, to the methods of taxes and welfare.
       
      That is a large topic and one with which we can delve into as a specific when the forum is focused entirely on the topic. We will say that the disruption of your leaders in the U.S. is the most important parallel having to be dealt with. The crux of this disruption has not come full circle yet.
       
      We will also note that this channel is not one of our best historians, therefore we are limited here.
       
      The parallels in culture are in the celebrations of art and creativity, freedom of expression, and an emphasis on peace. It is also in the development of care for all, not just the wealthy, including free basics in terms of shelter and food and clothing. These things are progressively becoming accessible in the U.S.
       
      We do have much more to say on the topic. We will continue at another time.
       
      [Deb] Will Michael explain the difference between want and need?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We find the differences between WANT and NEED to be profound: WANT is anything you are choosing consciously to ADD to your life, while NEED is anything you seek to FILL or SUSTAIN your life. There are certain areas of your life that are defaulted “pockets” seeking to be filled; these are NEEDS (food, shelter,…) There are certain areas of your life where a foundation is built and additions are sought (such as more relationships, more money, more or anything…), and that seeking is a WANT.
       
      There are always NEEDS and WANTS in a life and both add to the sense of searching in a life. NEEDS will always seek to be fulfilled first, at any cost. If they are not met, WANTS then become “dreams” unfulfilled or desperation, longings.
       
      [HectorO-C] I wanted to know if an update on the manifestation of the Infinite Soul was possible.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Since the beginning of this year, we have seen a tremendous drop in activity around preparations for a manifestation. The Infinite Soul will only manifest in a parallel or time frame when the Sentience is lacking direction and seeks assistance. A “surprising” factor in the last Nexus is in the detailed filtering of reality options that were leading toward more disintegration. This has created a lull in assessment, a pause, to see what humans will create over this year. It appears your species seeks more integration “on your own” than you might have anticipated.
       
      The novelty of having a manifestation may be exciting, but the indication that your species and the planet are transiting in Soul Age with little incidence is equally exhilarating to the soul.
       
      This can be likened to a teenager whose “father” threatens to pull over to make a point, but then the teenager making its own efforts to grow and communicate.
       
      So our update as far as we can see is a holding pattern. We will comment as this unfolds.
       
      [Barry] I am asking as proxy for another…. I am concerned with the future generations to come of our young. I believe that many are on the way to faster enlightenment, but still many are having a hard time. How could we as parents and adults help? I have a few ideas but perhaps you might validate or advise something?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Each generation of youth, as they mature and reach adulthood, has the same reaction to seeing the following generations of youth. What we would suggest is trusting in their processes. Those before you feared for you and you “survived”. This will not change for the next generation after you. This is more about your maturing than anything else; it is natural and part of your own growth.
       
      There is no “faster enlightenment” available now than there was before. We are unclear as to what you refer. The most any parent or adult can do is BE adults and parents, not seek to be saviors or heroes. Realizing your knowing more about the world and your place in it has made you no more or less “safe” will free you to shine as examples of trust, rather than teaching fear and false needs for protection and guidance. By assuming the children are in some form of vague danger in the world, this will be what is taught in your actions, if reaching out with that in your hands.
       
      Instead, seek the details of each child’s hopes, dreams, and levels of creativity and trust them, allow them to run with it. Provide as much childhood as possible, full of fun and activity and expression. Many of you interfere with a child’s natural development of confidence and competence by seeking to undermine them with good intentions. A child is as intelligent in its desires as you are.
       
      The greatest thing you can do collectively as adults is rally for changes in the educational systems. This is one of our own agendas and we are working with many in the system to change this. It is one of our intentions to redesign the contexts for education.
       
      This then is the only real tangible action that can be taken in terms of “generations”. If it is not your “calling”, then your only tangible action can be in creating a sanctuary for your children, creating lines of freedom for their expression, acting as examples of trust in life.
       
      In truth, each generation continues to “have it better” than the last. This has been the case for some time. We would not be here otherwise, ourselves. There must be an element of prosperity and peace in the environment for us to work with a channel and speak to masses. Otherwise, all are tending to Needs.
       
      [MaryBV] I am under the impression that a person’s aura fluctuates and changes quite a bit. Do the roles in essence have certain signature colors? Does your frequency have any determination in the color of the aura?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, you are correct. Each Role can be said to resonate with the colors commonly attributed to the Chakras. It takes some practice to specifically “see” that level, but it can be done. Frequency creates the “hue” of that color. We remind you that as you are Physical, it is impossible to “see” another’s Aura without the colors of your own being used as a filter. If you hold a red film up to yellow, you will get a completely different color than if you held up a blue filter to yellow. Keeping that in mind, you may have to calibrate or adjust your perceptions so they can be interpreted properly.
       
      We will conclude here.

      THANKS TO MaryBV for Moderating and Transcribing!
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We are here. One moment.
       
      Hello to all of you. The format tonight appears to be set in the “open floor” context, so we will simply open the floor and begin taking your questions as they come. You may begin. We do not have any comments to begin with.
       
      [MaryBV] I would like to know if there are any combination of Overleaves that cause people to be tardy for things, i.e., those perpetually late people.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Though there can be many factors involved, it is usually the effects of the “exalted” Overleaves that creates a lack of linear perception of Time. Ordinality is usually “closer” to comprehending Time and its implications, since Ordinality is more focused. This is not completely consistent, but it is a factor to consider. The primary Overleaf determining the experience and utilization of Time is the ATTITUDE. Exalted Attitudes can become quite “lost” in the restricted frameworks. Many who have an Exalted Attitude with a self-karmic situation to contend with concerning Time will create a challenge through the Chief Features of Martyrdom and Impatience. This will create the wonderfully-charged issues around Time and Space for them.
       
      We would think many would assume that the more exalted Roles might have “trouble” with Time, or that the more Inputs an Essence has, the more trouble they might have, but this is not consistent and is surprisingly more of the opposite. Those with One Input (Warriors, Kings, and Scholars) will have more trouble with Time than other Roles. Priest and Servers will be next, and Sages and Artisans having the least. Again, this is not a rule, but a reference.
       
      We have observed that those with one input are more likely to have trouble “multitasking” or “shifting gears” as they create routines and schedules to accommodate life. Those with more Inputs can gauge Time while they function on other levels.
       
      What we have mentioned in our response are just suggestions, not answers. Observe these for validation, if you choose. It is a place to start.
       
      [Nick] Is there a method that can be used to become more creative?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      There is never a time when you are not being Creative. What most are asking when they ask such a question is, “how can I feel more alive?” Determining the context in which you are trying to specifically channel your creativity is a first step. This can be done by noticing what it IS that makes you “feel alive.” Therein lies the clues to what you may have “inside you” longing to take form.
       
      We believe understanding your Role in Essence is a good place to start. Each Role has a basic NEED to create and a default Creation. PRIESTS and Servers NEED to create Inspiration, with the Priest defaulting to Guidance in the Positive and Steering in the Negative; Servers with Nurturing in the Positive and Manipulation in the Negative. Sages and Artisans NEED to create Expression, with Sages defaulting to Fun in the positive and Turbulence in the Negative; Artisans to create Structure in the Positive Pole and in the Negative, Stricture. Kings [and Warriors] NEED to create ACTION, with Kings defaulting to creating Progression in the Positive Pole and Enforcement in the Negative; Warriors creating Cohesion in the Positive, while creating Protection in the Negative. Scholars NEED to create ASSIMILATION, with Transformation in the Positive and Consumption in the Negative.
       
      There are many words to choose from to capture the spectrum from positive to negative in terms of anything, but these words are accurate to their point. Knowing your Role will give you, at least, a context to get started in permitting yourself to FEEL the creativity that is “natural” to you. As with many questions asked in an “open floor” forum, we will only be able to touch partially on the vastness of what is possible to explore.
       
      [ShannonB] I'm asking this for a friend, so I hope I get the gist of it right. Up to what point do roles remain significant or cohesive? Do Cadres have roles, or do the fragments in them retain their roles?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Although the Roles will remain a part of Essence throughout an entire Cycle, Essence Roles remain meaningful only as long as there are attachments to the individual Personalities in differentiation. To help explain: Essence as ROLE is the functioning aspect of “you” that is geared toward experiencing division/resistance, while CASTING is geared toward experiencing union/surrender. Essence as ROLE will “think” of all of its incarnations in the way a mother may think of her children. This sense of regard for all of the Personalities experienced lasts through the Causal to some degree. Up to and through the Causal, ROLE will be a reference, though less and less. Upon graduating the Causal, (and even while experiencing the Causal Plane) Casting becomes your primary reference.
       
      Once an Entity is entering the Causal, the experiencing of all of the Personalities shifts to a far more united mind, so to speak. Once the Entity begins “thinking as one,” (again, so to speak) only your position within the Entity is then referenced.
       
      Entities do not have Roles, though a predominance of Roles does give each Entity a “flavor.”
       
      Your ROLE is what you came to incarnations to make “shine” and “manifest,” while Casting is what you simply ARE. To put it another way, you will find that you PLAY your Role, and LIVE your Casting.
       
      [JNelson] Michael has mentioned that it is one of their agendas to redefine the current context of the educational system. Would Michael care to elaborate?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It is not a primary agenda as we have come across in some of our channeling and channels, but it is an impact we have chosen as our context in most of our incarnations in other parallels as a Transcendental Soul, so this “spills” into our parallels as a nonphysical teacher as well. We believe the incorporation of comprehending the various learning natures of each Essence could do greatly in healing much of the intellectual divisions on your planet.
       
      Currently the schooling system is geared toward the methods of Scholars, Warriors and Kings, though the Personality Overleaves may concur or not. Artisans, Sages, Priests, and Servers have no means to learn in a way that is conducive to them. Because of their fluidity, they can manage, but there is a toll. We believe it not to be GOOD WORK to identify children as Roles and start them along an education geared toward that Role, but rather allow the children to gravitate toward and define their Role as they discover it, making all forms of education available in some form at least through the age of 7. It will be obvious early on as to what direction a child may gravitate.
       
      Currently, all education before the age of 7 is geared toward the four Roles that are then “left out” as “formal” education begins. We would be willing to outline our entire concept of this in a session focusing on this topic, but this is a glimpse at our basic premise.
       
      [Dewliet] Hi Michael – Since I’m due with my second child in July, I was wondering if you could give me some tips on pain management and/or other aspects of childbirth, including techniques and medication that might not be covered in traditional texts?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Most of these techniques and medications or meditations for that matter, have been covered. There have been many births on your planet. Ourselves, having given birth hundreds of thousands of times, found that chewing on licorice root relieved a great deal of stress during labor, while the pain was found to be surprisingly easily forgotten.
       
      You have medications now that we did not have, and while we do not wish to affect your choice, we do believe enduring the “natural” pain is worth the health of the child. Many children have been given birth while the mother is under heavy medication and the results are not conclusive or consistent, so this would be your choice to use them or not.
       
      In your case, we see your knowledge that it is a passing pain, however lightly experienced or difficulty endured, will help. There will be a “knowing” in you that will be calming. This is not a prediction, but rather a comment on your nature. If you look at most of your most painful and difficult changes in your life, most mothers can see a parallel in their birthing. In your case, regardless of what appears, you have a calming knowing that it will pass and you are safe.
       
      [Annette] I know that there are special cameras that photograph the aura, and I have witnessed and photographed pictures with shapes, shadows/clouds, and orbs in them 11 days after my father passed away. Are these guides or spirit entities and can you comment on why we are able to see them like this? Are they making attempt to communicate?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The Kirlian Photography is a special technique, while flash photography is simply flash photography. Kirlian Photography allows you to see the bioenergetic (etheric) fields of your body in much the same way that iodine allows certain photography to see into the body. In the case of Kirlian Photography, there is a high frequency, electrical charge run through the object to help amplify its energetic emissions.
       
      Any camera that is used to photograph the “aura” that does not include the electricity running through the object is simply an EMULATION or simulation and is invalid. They are the equivalence of a kaleidoscope, to some degree.
       
      In Flash Photography, there is validity to much of what is seen as a paranormal phenomenon. Much of what are seen as “orbs” are actually microscopic dust particles in that moment, amplified by the flash. When the images are valid, they are not necessarily consciousness trying to communicate, but rather energetic emissions in the environment. When mourning is involved, the emissions can be great. Much of what are valid orbs, in the case of mourning, are merely the releasing of energetic “pockets,” if you will, that allow the fragment passing to “gather themselves.” Letting go of someone is most literal in mourning, even if the fragment being “let go” is still incarnating.
       
      Though some patterns are a form of consciousness, most are not, at least in terms of guides and spirits. If a “guide” or “spirit” is able to be photographed, then it is not of Essence, but of Personality as it is attached to the object of interest. That would mean they are not actually guides or spirits, but more like “echoes” of living aspect of themselves.
       
      [Annette] How do you know the difference then?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Again, another topic that we will not be able to exhaust in this forum. In being able to tell the difference, if there is a consciousness involved in those terms, dreams are more likely their medium of exchange. We dare say that Spirits and Guides (as we know the term) do not hover mid-physical making pretty lights.
       
      [JNelson] Would Michael care to outline the ways in which various Roles in Essence learn?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      In another chat or as a topic on your list, as the time constraints on this session will not permit. We will add, before leaving, that looking at the Needs of Creation we outlined in the beginning will help in seeing the different learning methods.
       
      We will conclude here. Goodnight.
