Michael teaches that the only purpose behind life, is life, itself. There is no profound, exalted, or mysteriously secret reason behind our lives. Tao (Michael's term for God, or All-that-is) fragmented itself for the pure sake of Experience. We are each "fragments" of this original source, imbued with the creative impetus to seek experience within a spectrum of possibilities! Thus, in any given lifetime nothing is wasted because ALL experience is valuable, even the "bad stuff." The need to judge those experiences as "good" or "bad" is a human convention, not a spiritual concept. Michael describes experiences as neither "good" nor "bad", but that our souls learn from ALL of it, though we eventually grow to be inclined toward more expansive, embracing experiences, rather than more restricting, limited paths. In addition, Michael teaches that the Universe is not a chaotic, random system of events that we simply have to endure, but rather that there is an awesome structure that can be comprehended by us to a great degree. This helps lend us a better understanding of our personal part in the larger scheme of things.
Michael does teach that reincarnation is valid. As a soul gains experiences, so does it gain maturity and wisdom, which is identified by what Michael refers to as a "soul age." They teach that every soul goes through 7 stages of maturity across as many lifetimes as it takes. There is no one to measure a soul's maturity except the individual soul, itself. As we gain experience, we learn to be more aware, more compassionate, more connected, more sensitive, and more peaceful, but we also go through a spectrum of experiences that naturally include all things horrifying and beautiful. We eventually gain enough experience that the Soul and the Personality within the lifetime begin to co-create, decide, and choose more consciously, bringing to the lifetime a greater sense of Truth, Love, and Energy.
Michael teaches that we, as individual consciousness, choose one of seven Roles (or Essences) to use as our particular means of expression during our cycle of lifetimes. This Role remains the same throughout all of our incarnations, though we continue to improve on that Role and we evolve our ability to play that Role with each experience gained. To make each soul even more unique, we choose a ratio of "Focused and Creative Energy" lending us more or less creativity or focus, which we eventually learn to balance out. We also choose a unique "Frequency," which describes how we tend to process life.
Your Soul creates a Body and Personality for every lifetime. When a soul first begins creating lifetimes, this can be quite difficult and chaotic, but with each lifetime, our soul gains more experience, and each Personality gains more conscious ability to choose and eventually both begin to create lives productively and meaningfully.
A Personality is designed with a Goal (a primary motivation for the lifetime), a Mode (how you reach your Goal), an Attitude (a basic perspective), a Centering (how you react to life), and a couple of basic Fears are developed in our youth (chosen for protection, but eventually sought to be overcome), and so much more!
There are 7 Roles/Essences, 7 Goals from which to choose, 7 Attitudes, 7 Modes, 7 Basic Fears, and so on.
To understand the dynamics of your Essence as it exists beyond this lifetime, and to gain self-awareness through the understanding of your Personality's design, greatly frees you from self-criticism, enabling you to enjoy this life, and to increase the Love and Understanding, Compassion and Peace in your experiences of relationships and self.
Have fun exploring and learning, and remember:
"We are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn."
I am Possibilities ?I have been reading the energy reports for quite some time. I am active under another name in the Michael Teachings Yahoo Group. Shepherd Hoodwin channeled me as a 7th Mature Priest with a discarnate Scholar Essence Twin. Should I get another channeling from Troy? Everyone does their channeling a little differently, and I'm not sure if I put down what Shepherd has me as it would be compatible with what's going on here.
In my 3D life, I am a technical writer in an aerospace company working on a degree in cybersecurity. I am female and have been in a relationship with a 2nd Old Artisan male for over a year. I have never been married and have no children yet. While going through my Mature phase in my 20s my life got pretty interesting, but I'm in my 30s now in the 7th stage so things have calmed down a lot. When I am not working on my master's degree I am with my friends/boyfriend or working out at the gym. Hope to hear from you!

MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor
[M Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will respond to your questions as they are presented, and we will begin with “freyaisis.”
[freyaisis] Michael, would you give us a mini energy report for the end of the year and starting a new year? Thank you.
It appears to us that most of our students, let alone the general population, are finally feeling the pressures of the energy of the Chief Features for this year: Self-deprecation/Arrogance.
October through December tends to emphasize a reflection on the life, on the year that has just passed, and this can sometimes lean one toward the energy that collectively builds as so many fragments contribute to the energies that are the chief negative features for the year. In this case, collectively, there is an emphasis on the seeming personal lack of importance, inadequacy, flaws, differences, outdated wounds, self-esteem, etc.
When the “season of the Chief Negative Feature” comes up, this is not to overwhelm the fragment with a negative outlook on his or her life, but it is intended to allow group support and empathy during a time of reflection. For all fragments there is an average of two weeks of this reflection during the 3 months of emphasis on the chief negative features. This reflection happens in waves and groups.
Groups of fragments carrying common themes, resonance, agreements, karma, etc. will then drop in energy as this reflection manifests, creating a wave that will then spread outward from fragment to fragment. Other groups will have done the same, leaving a wave of reflection to then “hit” you at least once more before the “season” is over. Quite often, your particular group may have had very little need for reflection, but the waves of other groups will still instill a sense of melancholy, at the very least. Imagining several pebbles dropped into a body of water with the ripples crossing and affecting other spaces (interference patterns) can give you an idea of how the Chief Feature season works in its effect. It is very difficult to “escape” the effects of the Chief Negative Features. Many can avoid or dismiss the other Overleaves as they are emphasized earlier in the year, but all who are alive will face their fears every year in some way, some how. This is part of the agreements made with the self and with the species as part of the cycles of incarnation.
We share all of this background with you at this time as this sheds light on why there are such “highs” and “lows” during the “holiday season.” It may be simplistic to describe the energy as “rippling,” but this helps understand the sense of waves that propel you or drop you during this time.
Regardless of your own chief negative features, this season will emphasize the questions and self-assessments of how comfortable you are with your own inadequacies and flaws; how comfortable you are with your efforts to be vulnerable and intimate. It could be said that one of the greatest themes we have seen this year is in the examination of all issues regarding intimacy and how one feels in the presence of others. The questions will not be answered by your claiming success or confidence, necessarily, but in your honoring and being present with where you are with those issues. The self-consciousness, depression, lack of enthusiasm, introspection, will not be alleviated by pouncing on the issues and resolving them, but in saying, “yes, that is where I am with that.” The season of Chief Negative Features isn't for resolution, but for acknowledgment and embrace of where you have come in the time of your one year. The search to resolve the issues is from where overwhelm and depression can come.
The irony in all of this is in that this is a time to CELEBRATE how far you have come, however little or much that is. In the weeks ahead many of you will feel the effects of these “ripples” and the “highs and lows” and it will only be through your kindness that you can find your footing. We cannot emphasize that word enough in light of the energy that prevails during such a phase of reflection: KINDNESS. It will always be your choice to do so, or not to do so, but we can easily suggest, and we do strongly suggest, that your kindness is needed toward yourself, and toward others.
When you feel at your worst in the weeks ahead, or when you see others behaving in ways that you feel are out of character or interfering with your own world, practice Kindness. We will define kindness as “perceiving innocence.” The cruelest, most vile of all of you, is truly innocent beneath the wounds that compel behaviors and choices. Innocence is there.
The most we can offer for your year ahead is a preview of what appears to be the overleaves, at this point in the patterns. These are subject to change, but we will share as accurately as we can at this point.
Chief Negative Features: Impatience/Martyrdom.
We will update these in January, of course.
[alomarsmom] I would like to know if there is any validity to “mediums” who purportedly bring messages from the “other side”. I presume they mean the astral plane.
There is a great deal of validity, but in two different ways: one way is in the obvious, which is that the medium is in contact with the consciousness that is the relative, friend, or loved one of the living. This is rare, and when a medium is in that kind of contact, the messages rarely make sense to the living, as the perspective from “the other side” is then so drastically different from when that fragment was embodied.
The other is more common in that the medium is psychically receiving echoes from the lives of the deceased as they still resonate in the energy of the living. This practice connects through a kind of template that belonged to the deceased and from that template, certain key words, phrases, images, feelings, etc. can be extracted as comfort for the living.
There is validity to the presence of “the dead” as they “walk” about among the living, but the ability to see them is rarely a practical perception as a means to act as a medium for the living to have contact. A few of our channels are highly aware of “the dead” within the days of their lives. This perception is really only effective in helping those specific, disembodied consciousnesses, and their cases have little to do with needing contact with the living. These disembodied consciousnesses find their own way, with or without the intervention of the living.
[SweetHeartSage] i am wondering what cadre 1 entity 7 are here on earth to do ?
In various ways, Entity Seven of any Cadre carries a theme of Inculcation. They are usually the “teachers” or “imprinters” or “extractors” of the Cadre, meaning that their lives can quite strongly impact those around them in ways that can range from inspiring to invasive. Those from Entity Seven can often be repetitive about the approach to life, never seeming to change their patterns, as they practice this theme of Inculcation. Those who practice Inculcation can often inspire those around him or her, but those who do not find their niche, their pattern, or a comfortable direction of repetition, can often move Eclectically, adding a sense of invasiveness and imposition to the lives of those around them.
Anyone from any Entity Seven must search for and implement a pattern within the life that lends meaning to their days, or they begin to chaotically scatter their energies in desperate searches for that pattern, rooting themselves in one destructive pattern, while randomizing their efforts in all other ways.
Those from entity 7 either embrace their true uniqueness or they spend their lives aching for recognition and being deemed “special” by someone or something that they have also deemed “special.”
Our answer does not describe what entity 7 is “on earth to do,” because there are no “assignments,” but we do describe the common themes that are shared by those in that position and how that may show up in the life. However, we can clarify that Cadre ONE, Entity Seven will carry a theme with an emphasis on teaching all about LOVE, either through Inculcation or through Eclecticism. All Cadre ONE, Entity Seven's would carry that similar theme for their Energy Ring. Bear in mind this “teaching of Love” does not mean “hearts and flowers and unicorns and butterflies” are presented to the world from Cadre One, Entity Seven, but rather that all challenges revolving around the reality of LOVE will be a theme. Many from Cadre One, Entity Seven are striking, but many are as strikingly unlovable as they are strikingly lovable.
[Llawryf] Is my current “flare” responding to the Boswellia (a gum resin) I am taking? It seems to be, but appearances can be misleading. If there are 7 stages of healing, where am I at?
There are actually 12 stages, or facets, or Healing, and you would appear to be 8th Stage as described by a state of Discipline. This stage is one wherein the education, insight, information, instructions, direction, etc., that have been found in relation to that which seeks to be healed is sifted through, tested, practiced, and thoroughly examined as to how all of it will help, hinder, or heal. Discipline is merely the practice of making conscious choices; therefore, your response to the “flare” is providing you with feedback as to your experience of your treatment. This information/feedback is heightening your sense of consciousness around the choices relative to this healing. Your “flares” will probably resist treatments until the root of the issue is uncovered, however well the Boswellia appears to affect them.
We would suggest that the message in these flares, and your efforts to treat them, is a direct reflection of your own Personality's efforts to constantly manage and “put out fires” in life, which then seem to only make more emerge.
As you are in the Discipline stage/facet of healing, we would suggest being highly aware of how you respond to “little fires” in the life; how you make choices as a means to reduce the amount of drama; how you navigate your plans as a means to control; and how all of this, ironically, escalates the very thing you wish to reduce.
Your next stage of Healing will come in the form of Anchoring, wherein you will sit with the information you have gained during Discipline, embracing it, finding comfort, security, acceptance, grounding in the truths you have uncovered.
As this question was of a highly personal nature, we will conclude our response here. We believe what has been shared may also be of help to others beyond the question.
[NOTE FROM TROY: I have not read or heard of the 12 Stages/Facets of Healing, so I am excited to get more information about this, if anyone has any! Otherwise, I will be channeling an article about it ASAP]
[tkmppi] What would be helpful for the Hopelessly Loved of the HL/HL monad?
For those who are in a Hopelessly Loved/Hopelessly Loving Monad, the greatest challenge for the Hopelessly Loved is in the management of the guilt and shame and sense of extensive responsibility for the Hopelessly Loving. What can help the Hopelessly Loved part of the Monad is in the allowance of the full experience of being WANTED.
The Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad is not truly about LOVE, but about WANT. It is “not your fault” that you are Wanted, nor is it your “fault” that you do not Want that person in the same way. You are not responsible for the definitions of Want for other fragments.
More than understanding your own position within the Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad, understanding the point of the other side can help tremendously. The Loving/Wanting part of the Monad is learning a powerful lesson in self-worth as it is defined INTERNALLY, rather than EXTERNALLY. The Loved/Wanted part of the monad is learning a powerful lesson in RESPONSIBILITY as it is defined by personal boundaries, rather than by the boundaries of others. Knowing that you are not Responsible for the Worth of another is liberating, even as you may still feel kindness or compassion for the Loving/Wanting position. It is okay to feel kindness/compassion for the other half of your Monad, but you do not help close the monad through guilt, shame, or obligation. This monad is closed when both fragments grasp their own ability to choose SELF as a first step toward truly Loving/Being Loved.
[H2OSprtLvr] [question was lost from the transcript, for some reason, but paraphrased, it read something like: “Do the various channels work with different parts of the Michael Entity and this is why there seems to be different answers to the same questions?”]
Our Entity responds as a whole, regardless of the various fragments within our entity with which a channel may have Agreements. We are never in disagreement or discrepancy across the entity as we respond through our channels.
When a channel is one of our Primary Channels, our answers will remain consistent through each channel, however “flavored” by the Personality of each channel. Our Secondary Channels may have a tendency to “spin” the information to the effect of support for their own teaching and perspective of life. Our Tertiary Channels rarely access our information accurately, but only access our energy as a means to support their personal experiences and personal expression.
Posing a question to three Primary Channels may result in three “different” answers, but they should not be in conflict. Posing a question to three Secondary Channels may have a theme, but clearly hold conflicts and discrepancies. Posing a question to three Tertiary Channels would result in elaborate discrepancies and a tendency to direct the student to believe in various “reasons” for dismissing these discrepancies, rather than encouraging a resolution or correction of discrepancies. Many of our Tertiary Channels rely heavily on the “energy” that they can convey, rather than the validity of information. Energy is difficult to question as it is subjective, whereas information can be questioned.
We can be called upon by 1000 Channels and our information or energy is not segregated among the channels. It is the same, regardless of accuracy or discrepancy among the channels.
All of this being said, it is not unusual for a Primary Channel to flaw the expression of our information; fatigue, inexperience, insecurities, personal issues, and specialization can cause a skew our contact with you. This is acceptable to us as we do not wish for any of our students to lose the ability to discern, question, or validate. Discrepancies among Primary Channels do exist, but are a result of isolated issues, rather than long-term agendas.
Entities have been described by some of our channels as being designed with “three sides:” one side of Truth, one side of Love, one side of Energy. Those “sides” are also the emphasis used among our varying channels, with Truth an emphasis among our Primary Channels, Love as an emphasis among our Secondary, and Energy as an emphasis among our Tertiary. Our Primary Channels access all three “sides,” while our Secondary access two “sides,” Truth and Energy; and our Tertiary can access only Energy.
We do not claim that any one channel's emphasis is better or more valid than the others. We merely respond to your question as a means to help understand how we can seem to be so fragmented in our responses among the channels who claim to channel us. While we are NOT fragmented or segmented among the channels, our channels can act as facets of us, allowing only specific angles of expression.
We must add that questions such as this are highly encouraged. We are rarely invited to share in this manner among our students because of the politics and fear among the students and channels. It is Good Work that you choose to rise above the condemnation of courtesy and ask the difficult questions that have the power to heal many of the rifts of misunderstandings perpetuated throughout our students and channels. Understanding our relationships and methods among our channels does not create hierarchy, nor can it be used as such, anymore than Soul Ages can be.
We will conclude here. Good night/day to each of you.

Troy Tolley, Channel
Michael Chat – Open Floor
[Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your questions and as we understand it, Lori is first.
[upstaate] I am asking for a Mini Energy Report for this month.
November marks the middle of the cycle emphasizing the processing of this year’s Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance on a collective level. This means that you have entered the psychological season, so to speak, which will allow the processing of the fears that are collectively generated in response to “inadequacies” and “vulnerabilities.” In most cases, this season of processing the collective fears is not done intimately, but played out in politics or larger-scale events.
In this season, the emphasis on inadequacies and vulnerabilities has been glaringly evident in American politics.
Even the concept of “Democracy” is being scrutinized to the point of revealing the absurdity of its lack of true implementation and weak points. There is a “quiet storm” brewing in the American (north) politics and November appears to be a pivotal month in defining how that will play out publicly. We are not speaking ominously, but simply stating the obvious: revelations are on the horizon and they will occur with grace or they will occur with tragedy, but probabilities show that they WILL occur; more specifically, a “domino-effect” of infrastructure collapse in what you call your current government (in the United States). When we state that that this “will” happen, we realize this word implies solid prediction, but we say that word in response to a 97% probability. In other words, the momentum is in place, regardless of how drastic a change might be made at this point, and is headed toward a “wall.” It is highly likely this momentum will hit that wall. At this time, we simply do not see your current President of the United States completing his term. We can also state this with some amount of unusual certainty because of the anticipation of those in the Astral; “all eyes” are focused for “the show.”
To summarize the “mini-report,” then, in terms of world events: it appears most of you will find some kind of impact at some point as a result of the inadequacies and vulnerabilities being revealed within the current government of the United States. The pivotal period of time appears to be during this month, November, but the public results may not be obvious until later.
On a more personal note, you may find yourselves walking through a period of time now wherein the flaws of OTHERS seem to be taking their toll on you. Distractions with the failures of OTHERS may be used to your advantage as a means to avoid your own flaws and vulnerabilities. This year's passage through the season of Chief Features appears to have a stronger emphasis than usual. A great many things have happened in the world over your year that have left the public angry and in want of finding someone to blame. Some years move through the Chief Feature season with ease and other years are buried in its emphasis. This year's months of October, November, and December may find each of you with at least one major challenge involving how to maneuver through the effects on you because of another person's choices or actions. It is a powerful opportunity to explore your own Overleaves, how you respond to the flaws and choices of others as they impact you, and doing this from the angle of the positive poles and make a shift in the dynamic that would normally leave you trapped. Regardless of your own Chief Features, there will still be an emphasis around you in relation to the year's chief features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance.
The end of your year is always a passage through the evaluation of what you accomplished in the time that has passed since beginning of the “new year.” Therefore, November usually marks the painful passage of time wherein COMPARISONS begin to be your means of assessing your days. We suggest keeping check on your own Chief Features as you begin to find yourselves comparing. Comparing is a valid process of evaluation, but many of you use it against yourselves or against others. Reminding yourselves that it is a TOOL for use, not for abuse, will help in the month ahead.
[Annsge] Deciding whether to follow up Lori's question….What are the probabilities of a complete change in government? What will this change expose?
[Annsge] In US gov't?
[Michael_Entity] The probabilities of a complete change are nearly inevitable, though most likely not fully implemented before another approximate 50 years. However, the current administration is precariously built in a way that as one member is: pulled into scrutiny, the entanglement from that person reveals other flaws, creating a near-cascade effect in revelation. The long-term change will be based on the exposure of a corrupt government whose impact upon the public is far more insidious and oppressive than ever considered possible. This is not sinister, but merely a result of withholding and hoarding of resources that have always been available. Much of what are concerns in the American culture and society are concerns that are utterly reversible within a single year, if resources were freed. The short-term change for which we see November as being pivotal is simply the revelation about the incompetence, manipulation, and deceit that permeates the current administration. We have always seen this presidency as the pivotal presidency that has the potential to end an outdated system of government, voting process, and public assistance.
[Tmk1802] Back to basics. Is Male/Female ratio constant or does it change from life to life?
It is a constant. What changes is the ways in which this is expressed and the ways in which it is eventually balanced. The higher ratio is a good indication of how your incarnational process began, as Male bodies are 100% Male Energy and Female bodies are 100% Female Energy; therefore, if your ratio is higher Female, it is fairly safe to say that you began your incarnations in the bodies most comfortable. As the Essence evolves, so does the want for balance, so choosing bodies to counter your higher ratio begins at some point.
Eventually, bodies are no longer the only means to bring balance and expression, but Events, Relationships, and Experiences are utilized.
[Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself?
[Tibtyk] And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious.
The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.”
In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved.
The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof.
However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake.
Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough.
Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love.
Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence.
Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.”
It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life.
Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen.
Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens.
In all cases of experimentation YOU will be key.
You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK.
You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO.
And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you.
[llawryf121] I've posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”?
That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context.
In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamourous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work.
In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality.
Or Manifesting Essence.
The fusion of Personality and Essence into a cocreative process.
We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system.
They are the language of glamour
[kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively
[Michael_Entity] Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar.
[Carrot Wax 1] k, now my question has changed to extend this question to Sages and other roles :-)
The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality.
This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible.
In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him.
The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.”
Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak.
The walls that isolate the Scholar are in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.”
Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories.
For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas.
How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed.
We have already addressed this issue in a lengthy session in the past, offering insights for all Roles. We will include that in the transcript for this session.
In that case, we believe we have addressed Matthew's question for elaboration, and will respond to Suz's question as the final question.
[Note: In lieu of adding the transcript mentioned, here is the link: Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3)]
[freyaisissuz] We would like comment from Michael about exactly what is a secondary conscious channel with an agreement with Michael. Thanks
[Michael_Entity] We are unclear as to what your question is.
[freyaisissuz] What does Michael say is a ‘secondary conscious channel’ so students will better understand the concept?
[Carrot Wax 1] is there a context this term was used in?
[Michael_Entity] We do not recognize the phrase as being a part of our teaching, though one of our channels may have chosen it as a means to convey a concept.
[freyaisissuz] It is information given to Al by a Michael channel.
[kittlekats41] can you rephrase it Al?
[llawryf121] probably should follow up with the original channel
[upstaate] it was channeled that Al had an agreement with the Michaels, using the phrase, “as a secondary channel” A fragment will have an agreement to be a primary channel. What is a secondary? secondary conscious channel, that is
[kittlekats41] would ‘conscious channel’ mean as opposed to a trance channel perhaps?
[freyaisissuz] That's how Al understood it, Kate.
[Michael_Entity] We would suggest asking that channel, as this phrasing did not originate with us. We suspect this is a phrasing used by our channels to describe a fragment with whom we have agreements to channel through, but not on a largely, public scale. It is not uncommon for certain phrasing to be generated by the channel as a means to convey a concept we have not created phrases for, ourselves.
[freyaisissuz] That makes more sense, he doesn't care to go back to the previous channel.
[kittlekats41] Would you have time perhaps to elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael?
freyaisissuz: Excellent, much better phrasing, Kathryn – Al
[Michael_Entity] We do not have time, but that is simply the nature of our plane.
[kittlekats41] hehehe of course, silly me:-)
[Michael_Entity] We will conclude here, but include a response to that final question for the transcript.
[ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO FINAL QUESTION]
(Disclaimer from Troy: I am asking this question as best I understood it, but I am uncertain if I conveyed it to Michael in the way the questioner meant it.)
Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael?
We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.”
“Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only primary philosophy.
“Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students.
“Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy.
“Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy.
“Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time.
“Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself or herself. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us.
“Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material.
In some cases, there is overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student.
Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.

MICHAEL SPEAKS – Open Floor
[M Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here.
[freyaisissuz] Michael has said in the past that in the teacher-student relationship we may learn from them and they learn from us. That indicates to me an evolving teaching. Do they still say that is true, and in what ways are we learning from each other today? How are we All doing?
Of course we remain learning from you as much as you learn from us.
There has come to be known many, many universal truths, routines, patterns, and repetitions that we can easily teach to all of you, but there are always “new” ways to experience life. We will not experience life through a body as you may experience that in your current time frame. We have learned and comprehended a great deal about the Physical Plane, but several of those fragments who have come to be known as our “students” have contributed to our own evolution of understanding the nuances of life on the Physical Plane. For while we are made up of 1050 Essences with an excess of 200,000 lifetimes of experience, there are far more of you collecting data within current times and through different “eyes.”
In answer to “how you are all doing,” we would have to say that only you can determine the answer to that question, for we have no investment in a standard against which to measure your lives.
[freyaisissuz] Of course that is true ;-), yet in terms of the ‘evolution’ of the teachings?
We would say that most of those who claim to be our students have simply found a rest stop and remain stagnant in the comforts of the basic knowledge. Very few of our students actively implement the knowledge we impart. This is not to say that we “mind,” for we do not. We do not impart this information with an expectation.
However, for purposes of response to your question, it is valid that few “use” this teaching. As long as there are divisions among those who work with our teaching, we can safely state that there are many who have “missed the point.” “Missing the point,” though, is a valid path of learning and experiencing, and for those fragments who choose that path, other areas of life are the priority.
In those instances, it would do those fragments well to consciously acknowledge their true, primary philosophy, so transformation can begin, if they choose. Our teaching runs counter to politics and competition, though its terminology and construct can certainly be used in any arena of life for any purpose, even if counter to the intention. This is not unusual among humans on the path.
[freyaisissuz] Point well taken, thank you for that clarification Michael.
Many will cloak their true, primary philosophy with the terminology of a more peaceful philosophy, giving room for self-justification and permission for unconscious motives. This is why we suggest identifying the true, primary philosophy, first, if one is truly interested in implementing the philosophy of our own teaching. As with most teachings, the truth can be summed up in a phrase or word, and since ours can be summed up in the phrase “you are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn,” we would say that those who are more concerned with the choices of others, while losing sight of their own, might be “missing the point.”
Understanding the motivations, experiences, feelings, reactions, interpretations, within your own ability to choose, is where you will find the most use for our teaching.
If that is your choice.
We will add something to our response, then.
When we refer to your “primary philosophy,” we are referring to two things:
Your Attitude and the Structure through which you gather your experiences, such as a teaching, imprinting, cultural biases, etc.
Many of our students are greatly influenced by the Young Soul philosophies of your current world, yet are quite unaware of this. In gaining that awareness of influence, the intended philosophies could find stability.
When one is using an unconscious philosophy that is counter to the “peaceful, cloaking terminology” of another philosophy, one is in the Negative Pole of the Attitude.
[sandt1222] Does that mean there is anything we can or should do to ease tension in the community?
The tension among what you call “the community” is merely a reflection of the tension being addressed within each of our students. We do not say this as a new age cliché. Most of our students navigate the Physical Plane through a maze of Young Soul obstacles, battling the want to exclude oneself from “it all,” while wanting desperately to be a part of the game.
This is reflected in your community.
The division and contention within your “community” is the result of a Young Soul paradigm superimposed over a community of Older Souls who seek nothing beyond that which they have become acclimated… yet.
[sandt1222] All these divisions can be physically painful. It does not seem that it “should” be this way.
The divisions among your community are based on the very concepts of “individuality” and “specialness,” which are Young Soul philosophies. An insidious fear among many Older Souls who live in your Young Soul paradigm is that they are “not special.” You will find many Older Souls, particularly Mature Souls, among our teaching and among other progressive philosophies, grasping at terms and definitions as a means to desperately capture an image of their specialness. This is a result of Young Soul imprinting from your world, which says that you must prove your “uniqueness” or find some means to stand apart.
Many use the Roles and Overleaves and Soul Ages as a means to define these feelings of specialness. Others use Past Life scenarios to compensate for the lack of feeling special.
We will clarify that UNIQUENESS is quite different from SPECIALNESS.
Uniqueness is what you ALREADY ARE. Specialness is what you THINK YOU SHOULD BE.
Uniqueness stands on its own. Specialness requires constant feedback.
Many do not care about their uniqueness, and struggle desperately for what could make them special.
It could easily be said, then, that the paradigm of Special vs. Not Special (a young soul philosophy) is the root of your community's division.
When your community begins to understand the Uniqueness among all of the groups of study, then your community will have implemented an Older Soul philosophy, and our teachings may have more meaning.
[Tibtyc] Greetings, Michael. Where do you stand on the subject of copyright? I would like to write about you, or rather the ideas coming from you. This would probably mean quoting from different channels, but the prospect of doing that is kind of scary, from the viewpoint of copyright… Any advice? That was my question.
When you are working with material from the physical plane, however inspired from non-physical sources, the question of ownership and copyright is valid. It is quite within the rights of any fragment to quote another. There are very few restrictions upon that freedom.
As to where we “stand,” we have nothing to gain or lose by your efforts. We have no cosmic “ATMs” through which we could reap the rewards of the printed word.
[Tibtyc] There are unpublished manuscripts, I was partly thinking of those…
[M Entity] These manuscripts are not conclusive words trapped by print. The same can come again through any of our valid channels. We are quite available and would remain so for any printed word we wish to impart.
[Tibtyc] That brightens the picture…
[M Entity] In other words, the concepts can be extracted from the “unpublished manuscripts” and posed to an available channel through which you wish to work with us. We may speak on those same subjects through that channel, allowing for more freedom for public print.
[Tibtyc] There are especially beautiful formulations…
[M Entity] If you are more concerned with the attachment of the print to the reputations of the fragments who collected it, then we would then have to suggest that your efforts require their participation and permission, for the most part.
[Fyredeva11] On another list, someone brought up the question of validity that 2 persons channeled as being in the same entity are ACTUALLY FROM the same entity, given that there must be tens of thousands of cadre groups each with Entity 1/5, for example. I ask this in skepticism of having so many channeled celebrities in our cadre. It seems to fall under the need for “specialness” you just spoke of.
It is valid that many fragments channeled as being within the same Cadre and Entity are technically NOT, though the numbers used for convenience are identical. This is especially true of many “celebrities” (historical or current) who are identified as being from among the same Energy Ring as our students. This is simply due to lack of understanding the structure of sentience.
Those we call our “students” are wholly limited to a group of 12 Cadres; an Energy Ring. We have approximately 100,000 students.
This is not to say that others outside of our Agreements will not become students, but we speak of those with whom we have original.
[Fyredeva11] thank you…(I knew Michael Jackson wasn't in my entity!)
The confusion as from which Cadre and Entity a fragment comes could be clarified by including the Energy Ring number, but this is still a confusing concept for several of our students and channels. We say this more as a statement of the limitations placed upon the conveyance of the simplicity of the system, rather than as a statement of your ability to understand. For some concepts, our channels are simply limited or uninterested. In other instances, a clear distortion of the system is perpetuated, lending even more confusion to a rather simple construct.
While including the Energy Ring number would help in clarifying specific Cadre and Entity, even the count of Energy Rings repeats. This means that an Energy Ring 3, Cadre 7, Entity 4, exists in multiples, as well.
To help your understanding of the simple, yet awesome, structure of human sentience, here is how we are cast:
1 Ring = 12 Cadres
12 Rings = 1 Sphere
12 Spheres = 1 Arrangement
12 Arrangements = 1 Composition
12 Compositions = 1 Harmony
(up to) 7 Harmonies = 1 Design
ALL of a Specific Sentient species we refer to as a “Design.”
There are never more than 7 Harmonies in 1 Design.
This structure then extends and changes when including other Sentience.
One can see why this is confusing to most, not because of complication, but simply by the sheer enormity of the visualization.
[Fyredeva11] which one is our energy ring in?
Within all of this daunting information, it can safely be said that if you are studying our teaching, you are within the Cadres and Entities of the same Energy Ring, even if that Energy Ring is numbered differently through our different channels.
Through this channel, we would call your Ring Number 2, Harmony 1.
[Fyredeva11] Artisan flavored?
It could be described as so, but this would be quite simplistic, if not explored beyond the assumptions.
We are from Energy Ring 1, Cadre 11, Entity 4, Harmony 1.
We are part of the same “Sphere” as our students.
We are from Sphere 2.
The previous Sphere 1 (12 Energy Rings) were part of what has come to be known as “Lemurians” or those less-physically dense, though they were still of “human” consciousness.
The mathematical meaning of the numbers referencing your positions is more influential than whether you literally share the same Entity.
Your resonance and compatibility among you are difficult to validate in terms of Entity and Cadre accurately. Being “wrong” about whether you are from the same Entity will not slow your progress.
Yes, Positions. For instance, a 3rd Entity will still have a specific, mathematical meaning, regardless of its Cadre or Energy Ring.
This mathematical meaning can often be the binding force between two fragments who are technically NOT from the same Entity.
On the contrary, those technically within the same Entity may find absolutely no resonance during specific lifetimes, especially when interpreted through False Personality. Incidentally, Michael Jackson is in your Entity, Kerrin.
Celebrity does not preclude a fragment from being our student. Only Choice can do that.
[Annsge] So Michael J could have been a Michael student.
[M Entity] Michael Jackson has been exposed to our teaching. The Personality known as Michael Jackson has chosen to abdicate Agreements with us for this lifetime, but this does not alter anything for his Essence.
[Annsge] According to some in the Michael community, Jackson was Mozart.
[M Entity] It often a mistake to assume that similarities between a past personality and those of a current personality validates a reincarnation. It is more often the case that a fragment creates a spectrum of personalities across a theme, rather than recreating the same for the convenience of recognition.
[Fyredeva11] it just seems odd that if there are, say, a few hundred souls incarnate from an entity- that they would be so far removed
[M Entity] Kerrin, in what way do you use the words “so far removed?”
[Fyredeva11] I mean in so “different” a world. I guess Hollywood seems like a different world, in a sense.
[M Entity] We remind you that our students, even among “your world,” are quite unique among themselves and often cannot relate.
[Annsge] Does the 7th Internal Monad always mean physical death?
No, but only rarely. Those who transit a Soul Age within one lifetime will go through a psychological “death” of sorts, and during the process, despite being alive, the 7th Internal Monad would apply. By extension, a new “Birth” would also result. However, in these rare cases of Soul Age transition within a lifetime, there is also an overall “arc” of the 7 Internal Monads that remain within the context of physical aging.
The 7th Internal Monad is almost always a physical death and how that death's impact is processed by the fragment and his remaining family and friends. This Internal Monad, as we said, can also be WITHOUT a physical death, but through a major, pivotal, transitional, transformation in the psychological makeup of a fragment shifting in Soul Age within a lifetime.
[Tibtyc] Could you clarify “arc”?
Physical Birth to Physical Death could be described as “the Arc of Internal Monads.” Psychological Birth to Psychological Death could be described then as a “Cycle of Internal Monads.” A Cycle is all that is necessary to be completed in the process of moving from one Soul Age or Level to another, so for many Older Souls, physical death is not necessary to begin the new perceptions.
This process is not popular. Most fragments choose to reflect from outside of the lifetime, in review, rather than to implement such high awareness from within the demands of Physicality.
[Tibtyc] This would be a review within a lifetime, of that lifetime?
[M Entity] Yes. Review is always necessary in the process of creating a new cycle of Internal Monads. This process can be quite demanding and challenging while within the lifetime. Once a Soul Age or Level has been transited within a lifetime, it will usually take the next 7 months for Review, and the next 7 years for implementation of the new perception.
[slacnj] By my accounting there are 21 extra fragments in your entity. You said there are wild cards, one time, but I wasn't sure if you wanted this information to come out now to explain the difference. I jokingly also speculated that some people have aisle seats and some have window seats.
[M Entity] A “Wild Card” is a fragment who “straddles” two casting positions. When a Cadence in “incomplete,” those fragments at the beginning of the following Cadence will then “fill two positions.”
slacnj: so you can be in more than one cadence at a time?
Our channels envision this “wild card” scenario quite differently among them, with some visualizing a more condensed perfection of an Entity structure, with wild cards being “stragglers hanging on” from the “edges.”
Asymmetry is required of an Entity for it have “wild cards.” However, that same asymmetry is no longer in effect, ultimately BECAUSE of the “wild cards” fulfilling the positions required for symmetry.
[slacnj] but 1050 is 21 more than 3 times 343
[slacnj] you have 3 extra cadences
While an Entity of 1029 is the most common symmetrical configuration, 1050 is not asymmetrical. We do not have any “wildcards.” If an Entity's count is divisible by 7, there are no “wild cards.”
It is not in the “extra” cadences that asymmetry is created, but in the incompletion of a single Cadence. If positions 5, 6, 7 are “empty” in a final Cadence of Sages, then the positions of 1, 2, 3, of the following Cadence of Artisans (for example) will fulfill 5, 6, 7 consecutively.
This “straddling” creates a fragment who is at once intensely unstable, while inherently being one of the most stabilizing forces known, as well. How that “wildness” is exhibited is determined by the choice of the Essence and its current Personality.
[slacnj] everyone wants to be special here
[M Entity] Your humor is not lost on us.
[freyaisissuz] unique at least
We know of no one more unique than each of you. The spectrum of the beauty among you is as valid as the patterns we perceive in planes even beyond our own.
Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
