    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: September 2009]

     

    [Question] Hello, Michael. You have begun to answer these questions in many ways throughout this chat. Perhaps, though, you could elaborate more specifically. 1) Are you aware of another mid-causal teacher who calls itself Abraham? They teach about the law of attraction and how we create our own reality/experience. 2) How do your teachings about karma and essence choices relate to their teaching? They teach about how we create our own reality through our vibrational offering and how we can control much of what comes into our experience by guiding our thoughts in a certain direction and paying attention to how we feel. They teach that what shows up in our experience is always (without exception) a match to our vibrational offering. My main question is 3) How much can we “control” from this PERSONALITY perspective? For example: if essence wants to learn lessons about poverty, would I be able to co-create wealth by my conscious, NOW focusing of my thoughts and attention?

     

    [Michael Entity]
    In response to your questions:

     

    1) Yes, we are aware of this entity, who acts as a “channel” themselves for other entities. The entity who is identified as Abraham is of the Astral Plane, however, and acts as a medium for Causal Plane entities who are the source of the teaching.

     

    2) We find our teachings dovetail quite well with the source of Abraham's teachings, but we see some of that validity is lost in the translation through the channel and furthermore in the reception by the students. The emphasis on emotion and feeling is an emphasis of the Astral entity who is learning all about the dynamics of emotion on that plane, so that entity is teaching what it is learning, but leaving out some key elements that the Causal sources are offering. The emphasis on “vibration” is an Astral teaching, because that is the direct medium of experience in that plane, but this is a difficult and rather intangible term for most to find useful to any extent while Physical. It often leads to frustration and further division within the self as it seems this should be such an easy concept to harness and use. This is not to say that many do not “get it.” Many do. But those who truly grasp the teaching also grasp the limitations.

     

    In answer to number 3: you have COMPLETE control over your lifetime as Personality. This is said, of course, with the caveat that “complete control” is meant in terms of CHOICE, and choice is often confined to certain parameters imposed by the nature of the Physical Plane, and the impact from others who choose to impact you. However, Essence NEVER imposes. Essence does not impose a lesson of poverty, for instance. Instead, it learns from the choices of Personality when those choices lead to a life of poverty. It is true that Essence may be curious or want to learn about poverty, but it does not impose those lessons. Essence may choose to be born within the conditions of poverty, but from there, the Personality is in control. Everything leading up to the first breath is the choice and creation of Essence. Beyond that first breath, everything is a result of choice made by the Personality.

     

    The entire concept of “lessons” is a misnomer, by the way. Essence does not impose lessons, and neither does the universe, god, or any other force. Instead, “lessons” are simply what one chooses to gain from an experience. Twenty children can be in the strictest of classrooms with the greatest of impositions to learn a certain subject, and all will leave having learned something varied, even if all of them can now add 4 plus 4.

     

    You can create what you want with this life, within the parameters of what tools you have, what tools you gain, with your intentions, with your call for help and your openness for support, and your use of energy in a direction that is aligned with your desires, and your willingness to deal with the obstacles that arise from within and without.

     

    [Question] What are some of those key elements that are left out of Abraham's teachings?

     

    [Michael Entity]
    What is missing is too much to explore here, but can be summed up in being the Causal aspects. The equation of creation that requires Cause, Force, or Action to be a part of it. The emphasis from the entity known as Abraham focuses on vibration, thought, and feeling, with some emphasis on doing, but the doing is then stripped from the teaching in the recipients' interpretation as they are left presuming that reality is created merely from positive feelings and proper thinking.

     

    For those who realize that reality is not simply something you wish into existence around you, but is one that is generated from your force in the world that is generated through your acts of choice, and your choice in action, then the teaching can be of great use.

      Open Floor
       
      Note: This content has been corrected based on Troy’s acknowledgment of errors on June 26. Although the report is for two weeks, Michael included info regarding a shift in August.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Hello. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as it stands for the weeks between June 24 through July 7. We will comment momentarily that the energy over the past couple of weeks has built and will peak this weekend, for most of you. We speak in a wider meaning of “you” at this point.
       
      This weekend will be a pivotal social experience for some of you. It is suggested that you take part in any events you have been invited to or are considering in any way. We do not wish to infuse any more meaning into this weekend than you, individually, would extract, but the energy is there for this to be a great change in your usual setting.
       
      If you are in some way involved in a larger gathering or social event than you have been for a while, we suggest it is in an indication that you are, indeed, considering more of your Needs being responsibly fulfilled. If you are not involved in any events of this nature, it may be simply an indication that you are open to examining the more social aspects of yourself, responsibly considering your personal Needs before exposing yourself to a larger circle. Regardless, the themes over the next couple of weeks are, indeed, about exposure and even further reaching out to other fragments in Agreement, Karma, or any other connection.
       
      Many of you older souls shy away from the more “silly” aspects of being “out there,” resigning from indulging in social activities and playfulness. It is not because you do not crave it, but that you feel as if “there are more important things to do.” Even if you believe you are a fairly playful and social person, as our channel here does, we still suggest that there is an opportunity this weekend, and over the next two weeks, to “let your hair down.” Your Chief Features will be highlighted, but only lightly, in relation to how you feel in groups, and as part of a group.
       
      August 4 marks your next Parallel Shift; this one focusing on arranging, rearranging, adding, and moving away from people in your life. Any relationships that are not fulfilling to you on at least two levels (out of 4; Instinctive, Emotional, Intellectual, Physical), will more than likely dissolve. Any relationships that have been introduced within this year that are “new” and are fulfilling at least two of your levels (and reciprocated, of course), will more than likely take a serious, permanent turn. We include the next ten days or so as a period of time in “finding” some of the “new” relationships, as well. This does not have any bearing on relationships outside of this context, as anyone met after August will have different contexts and “reasons” of their own.
       
      We do not mean to imply anything more or less about relationships outside of these parameters in the Energy Report; we are merely commenting on the nature of the energy at this time.
       
      During this Nexus, you will be DIVERGING Parallels, primarily, meaning you will be in a period of potentially obvious Choice Making. Your choices will determine the nature of any parallels created or sustained.
      We realize choice making occurs at all times, but during a Nexus, there are either MERGINGS or DIVERGENCES, primarily, and with Diverging, there is a heightened sense of needing to consider your choices. While during a MERGING, there is a sense of needing to sleep, wait, exhaustion, etc., as with the previous major Nexus.
       
      We will begin with your questions, either about the Energy Report, or otherwise.
       
      [MaryBV] Well, it is interesting that you brought this up, because I have been wondering about the nature of the TrueView list now that the membership has changed. Can you comment a bit on the purpose of the list now?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The “TrueView” list has several “purposes,” many of them personal to the participants. In and of itself, though, “TrueView” has as its “purpose” to house the elements of your Cadre and Energy Ring who are concerned with this Teaching as it can be applied in the lives of others. We do not mean “apply” in terms of recruiting or teaching it, yourselves, but rather, many of you are serious about how to translate the elements of your lives through the lens of this teaching, and utilize that insight as a means to help others.
       
      We have seen a common denominator among those of you actively participating with “TrueView,” in that you are “working on yourselves,” not as a means to only “better yourselves,” but as a means to be MORE for others. Each of you appear to be “touchstones” for many in your contact circle, and whether subtly or more openly shared, your perceptions are used as a means to better your relationships, and this extends into helping others with their own.
       
      If “TrueView” were to have a “Task,” it could be said to be “to comprehend and embody the importance of being Needed and Wanted.”
       
      [ludmila] This changing of relationships you refer to, as happened with people unsubscribing from this list, and still others recently joining, does this mean the agreements have been filled or just changed, or is it that those people who left resonate more to another channeler?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Many Agreements were abdicated, while still others simply resonate more to other speakers. Those that have abdicated will find other Agreements to fulfill; those who were left with the abdication will find their second strings of Agreements to fulfill. Agreements are malleable, as you know, and are not Karmic in their fulfillment or abdication, for the most part.
       
      Abdication though, does tend to bring out any Self-Karma for examination. The shift in the list you refer to certainly created a wave of self-examination and self-karma, mostly around acceptance and, as we said, the nature of being wanted and needed.
       
      [Dewliet] Hi Michael. Aside from what Troy would call “sucky channeling,” what are some reasons for discrepancies in overleaves channeled by different people?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      There are three facets to a Personality, the Akashic Records (or True Overleaves), the Perceived Overleaves; and the Projected Overleaves. The True Overleaves are just that, the True Overleaves. They are sometimes not understood or agreed with because they do not “match” the behavior the fragment appears to be exuding, but they are the Overleaves, nonetheless.
       
      Due to Imprinting, a fragment can appear completely in opposition to his/her True Overleaves. No amount of valid channeling will bring awareness or validation to this fragment or those trying to comprehend them.
       
      Perceived Overleaves are the Overleaves of another fragment as they are filtered through your own or a channel’s; it is how YOU see Other. Channeling the Overleaves of a fragment as they are being perceived by those around them can be very freeing and enlightening. This, then, can bring understanding and acceptance for that aspect of them and/or free the Perceived fragment from the confines of the imprinting and bring about the True Overleaves.
       
      Projected Overleaves are those being attempted to as a presentation from the fragment in question.
       
      Regardless of the True Overleaves, this fragment may have decided on a way of being and behaving that is conducive to certain tasks or images. This does not change their True Overleaves, but certainly affects how they are perceived. Channeling for that fragment or about that fragment can bring understanding and acceptance about the nature of their Ego and self-perception.
       
      It can be said that the Perceived Overleaves can shed light on the nature of the fragment as they are expected to behave, while the Projected Overleaves shed light on how that fragment expects to be accepted. ALL versions of the Overleaves are “valid” in their own contexts. Many channels are not aware of these differences as Facets.
       
      So, aside from “sucky channeling,” there is this to consider.
       
      [Annette] Psychic Sylvia Brown has stated that the soul chooses three “exit points” for its lifetime – possible “outs” in case life isn’t working out and fragment chooses to return, or when fragment feels work is done. Can Michael comment on this?
       
      [Michael_Entity] We have seen the average as being 5 Exit Points. We concur other than that minor point.
       
      [Liiona24] During last report on Needs, the statement was made that we should watch our reactions and that those indicated where we needed to be doing more for ourselves, if I interpreted correctly. However, some needs appear to be “other” oriented such as Exchange. How is this resolved then, how does one meet a need for “exchange” unilaterally, for example?
       
      [Michael_Entity] ALL Needs are only “Other-Oriented” in that they do require a certain circuitry for their fulfillment. What we mean in terms of these Needs as being the individual’s responsibility to fulfill, for instance: if you believe there is no fulfilling Exchanges in your life, then you would seek out more appropriate “circuits.” If you are trying to have a meaningful, deep, emotionally/intellectually/physically satisfying Exchange in a relationship that is not creating a circuit, then it may be appropriate to lose the expectations of that being your source. Exchange is not just about giving something to someone else, but that you are having True Communication on some level. Exchange can be satisfied even in the realms of financial investments, so it is not simply about Other. Their is no way to “unilaterally” be concerned with the Needs of Others, except in terms of what you feel you are comfortable in offering. You will all find your sources and matches in some way.
       
      [JNelson] What emotions are goosebumps and the “chills” a physical manifestation of, not counting responses to temperature? Or intellectual manifestations of, for that matter.
       
      [Michael_Entity] This could be called “Instinctive Realization.” It is the result of the Lower Centers responding/reacting simultaneously as PARTS of the Instinctive Center. This experience is always linked to “realization” on a level that bypasses all of the Lower Centers, but creates a release in them as Parts in the Instinctive Center. When this occurs, it is safe to say that the very base part of you has resonated to something rooted in fear or desire. Fear may be obvious, but when the realization is in desire, as it is meant here, is in the connection made on a level wherein you had no previous realization that you were “expecting” something of that nature.
       
      [ClaireN] Would Michael please comment on the function of the pineal gland and any disorders that it may cause?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The Pineal Gland is related to what might be considered your Higher Emotional Center, 6th Chakra, or “Third Eye.” We have seen its function directly related to dreaming, astral perception, channeling, imagination, and true perception/love. It is highly affected by the amount of sunlight, or any light for that matter, that is taken in through the sense of sight, and as the light permeates the forehead. Those who have a block or “disorder” in this gland can tend to have fertility problems, menstruation problems, and inability to have imagination of an optimistic nature, inability to recall dreams, may have depression and sleep disorders.
       
      One of the major contributors to the suppression of this gland’s ability to function properly is in the use of what is called “microwaves.” Food prepared in this fashion tends to carry within it “vortexes” of energy that, when integrated over a short period time, can lead to lack of motivation and lack of clarity for a future. The “vortexes” remain in the body, particularly affecting the Pineal, for an average of 7 years. We do not have a term through this channel to more adequately describe that which is transferred through the act of microwaving, but this will do.
       
      The “vortexes” collect in the center of the food prepared, in a size approximately equal to a golf ball. Larger ovens preparing larger foods can create collections in sizes up to a tennis ball. Those who are overexposed or underexposed to sunlight can develop a disorder of this gland. Those who are overexposed to what is called Fluorescent lights are susceptible to this, as well.
       
      We will conclude here. Good Night.

      Conscious Connection to Essence
      [Otterly = Troy]
       
      Note: This series begins with Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (1 of 3) and concludes with Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3).
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We are here. One moment.
       
      Welcome to you all. We will begin. What we will do tonight, in light of the topic, is take your questions. We believe an open dialogue may find some insights being gained through exchange. We are preparing a larger work of channeling with Otterly that you will see in the next few days. This piece is being asked of us as a means to understand the different “paths” that might be relevant for each Role. This is too large of a topic to cover in a time-limited chat, but we can respond, nonetheless. Absorption of the material will be more comprehensive, as well, as you read it at your leisure.
       
      With that, we will begin taking your questions. For now, we will take questions on the topic of gaining a heightened sense of connection to Essence. If there are no questions, we have a not so easily fatigued Sage working with us and can find as much to give him to say as he can himself. We will give you a moment to decide.
       
      [ksh] What influences the motion of dowsing with a pendulum? Is it cycled off members of your entity trying to communicate with you?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      If you choose for it to be. The mechanical aspects of this, along with the biological aspects of this, are simple and random. Anything chosen as a symbol for communication with Essence (or other Essences) can be utilized. Messages can be found in the layering of cheese on a pizza, if that is a medium you relate to. This is a valid means for seeking communication with Essence, choosing your symbols; choosing what makes sense to you as a Personality. In choosing this, you will pass through an initial phase of randomness until you synchronize with what you are using as your symbols. Your pendulum swings may be the meaningless rhythms of your latest nervous state at first, but later, even if in the same state, your “meaningless rhythms” can then become decipherable, even if only by you. This may or may not be with the help or influence of discarnate fragments.
       
      In keeping with the topic we will ask, if each of you were to choose a symbol, a means for messages to be relayed from Essence, what resonates with you?
       
      [TCB] I was wondering about the average soul ages of the Oracles at Delphi? Also, how those ‘experiences’ might be brought to bear now upon the various *participants*, at the current soul ages?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Most of you have been within one level of your current Soul Age since the last manifestation of the Infinite Soul. For the thousand years approximately before the manifestation, those of you present here, moved only one or two soul levels. Many of you have been incarnating for nearly 6 million years. This gives you a larger scope of the process of living lives and transiting Soul Levels. Though some of you feel a sense of urgency or weariness at the game, Essence enjoys nearly it all. It strolls through your incarnations ecstatic, in most cases.
       
      As far as the experiences from past lives, the lifetime that will affect you or is relevant, affects you with or without conscious awareness. Many of the experiences “gained” in the lives at Delphi are complete experiences and have no bearing in your present. What the Essence gains, is not necessarily what a current Personality can utilize or make sense of.
       
      Though many of you completed lives in Greece during this great influential time, there are but a few who still remain linked to that time in terms of influences now. We are speaking in terms of your “list” and its members.
       
      Next question.
       
      [Arinna] When I am channeling my higher self (essence) how can I get my personality’s consciousness out of the way as much as possible? Also, when I feel that shift in energy within myself – is that my essence causing that?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      In answer to your first question: you will never be able to “get your personality's consciousness out of the way”. Your consciousness IS your Essence connection. The key is in learning to trust your Personality and work with its thoughts, feelings, and motion. When settling in to “channel” your Essence, you are merely deciding to gather a larger perception. When connected to Essence consciously, it is not necessarily a revelation or a significant shift or breakthrough. The state is so natural some dismiss what has occurred. There will be a shift in energy, and this will be as significant as you require as a mark for your connection. This is your body/Personality's design, not Essence's. The “shift” you speak of is a harmonious, clear mark for you and it works. Many choose this method.
       
      There is as much Essence involved in a fist fight as there is in a charismatic guru, when consciousness and choice are aligned. When sitting next in your session to connect more consciously to Essence, simply want to, and it will be. Within that moment, all any of you have to do to remain connected consciously, is to choose consciously. We will define “consciously” here as “with awareness”, but there are other ways to define.
       
      When every decision you make as Personality is done with consciousness, Essence is present. When you find yourself happy, Essence is present. Whether you are indulging in eating a bucket of ice cream, doing horrific acts of violence, or singly sweetly with a friend… if chosen consciously and with intent, Essence is present.
       
      The mark for rejection of Essence, or blocking of Essence can be seen in any sense of contraction in your life, or area of your life. We realize we have moved into a tangent, but we feel it is relevant. Essence can be present, for instance, in your art or creativity alone, but is rejected or blocked in a relationship to a spouse. Essence “backs off” from areas of your life where the Personality has chosen to do things its own way. We will ask here, before continuing with questions, if we have answered Arinna's question to a degree acceptable.
       
      [Lights_Edge] What are some examples of common old soul beliefs and emotions that limit our conscious connection to essence?
       
      [TCB] Please excuse me…but just to clarify something, when you said two ‘soul levels’, did you mean “soul ages?” Or soul levels? (within the 7 Stages?)
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We will answer Terrence first, but are aware of Terri's question. We will answer that following.
       
      Common Old Soul beliefs are: that you all already “know it all”, especially relative to the “poor little young souls”.
       
      That you deserve a financially abundant life free from effort; that your peers (other Older Souls) are weird (even as you appear weird to them); that you are from another planet. (We speak of this last one relative to its preoccupation.) Others are, that you are alone; that you do not fit in; that you must suffer; that if you can just ride out this life, it will all be over; that you are “tired”; that you are done.
       
      These are just a few. We realize each of you will have your versions of these and others, as well. When these beliefs (or ones you identify) can become acknowledged, we suggest the fastest way to reconnect to Essence would be through laughter, pleasure, or through tears. These three biological functions are directly related to contact with Essence, and in most instances, a “pure connection”.
       
      We mean “pure” in the sense that it is quite difficult to be self-judging in the moment of actual true tears, true laughter or true pleasure. As we have said in many instances with your little group, tears are the biological reaction to Truth. We now add that Laughter is the biological reaction to Oneness (Energy/Beauty), and Pleasure is the biological reaction to Love.
       
      We will answer Terri's question now. We referred to the 7 stages when we said each of you has transited approximately one or two soul levels from the one you are in presently.
       
      [MaryBV] Getting in touch with essence seems like such a BIG question. I am wondering if as younger souls we incur karma and work on monads and the like to throw up roadblocks for us to pull down as we get older. In other words, as we move away the debris of our younger days, are we in fact starting the lesson of the older levels which is to re-remember our essence? And in answer to the question about resonance I believe I resonate with my essence through music.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      You are correct in many ways, Mary. “Re-remembering” is a valid term in this instance. The Old Soul phase can be said to be the age of comprehending all consequences. Studying your Role will give you more and more insights into your “essence”. No other aspect in your dynamics can clarify that remembering as much as your Role.
       
      Many of you have become very adaptable over the eons. This means you are less inclined to manifest your Essences as you see fit. Instead, you rely on this single Personality that “you” are to comprehend all that has come to pass as a Soul. The key is in freeing the personality from this distraction. This is why we feel past lives, though valid, more often lay a burden on many of you in ways that are difficult to comprehend or validate. There are some functions that are of Essence, and some that are of Personality's. Differentiating these functions can lend more freedom to both. Personality wants to live. It is alive NOW in the most important sense it will ever know. By treating yourselves (Personality) as something to be overcome, set aside, tamed, or controlled, you are missing the point.
       
      You are Essence's eyes, hands, feet, heart… everything you delight in, so does Essence. For each Essence there are simple ways to take delight in a life. In that delight, there are ways to build more conscious connections. Building on delight brings the laughter and tears and pleasure. As we have said before, Happiness is a navigational tool for the body while on the physical plane. We will point out that happiness does not mean you are merely smiling and content. Even in the worst of situations, they can technically be contextually happy since there are aspects of you that “understand”.
       
      To help in re-remembering your Essence, we think these few keywords may be of some assistance in navigating toward delight:
       
      For the Expressive Roles, Sages and Artisans take delight in playing, goofing off.
      For the Inspirational Roles, Priests and Servers take delight in helping, guiding, caring for, discussing.
      For the Action Roles, Kings and Warriors take delight in challenges, commitment, and sexuality.
      For the Assimilative Role, the Scholar delights in knowing, understanding, and learning.
       
      They can also refer to Casting.
       
      Although these delights are not exclusive nor complete, they are helpful in reminding you of what Essence delights in, and this can be compared to when you, as Personality, may be filtering or dismissing that delight.
       
      [nemo999] Regarding symbols, does essence have a natural language instead of words, I am thinking of thoughts, feelings, pictures instead of English or Chinese for example?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The Language of Essence is transparent, so to speak. It is relative to the listener. Essence cannot communicate any other way. On the Astral, it is understood that you will never “see” the true Essence you are communicating to, unless you resonate. Otherwise, every Essence sees its version of other Essences that makes the most sense of the energy that is “other”. Therefore, while physical, Essence will appear, communicate, behave, in whatever fashion the personality imposes or chooses. This is why we suggest being conscious of what you feel is symbolic of Essence. This will heighten your conscious connection.
       
      The idea of Power Animals is a valid means to achieve this. Choosing a number that then shows up occasionally on clocks, receipts, etc. This is a valid reminder and connection to Essence. There are a multitude of ways and you may create many paths for these. And then there will finally be the symbolic realization that you can simply BE your Essence, meaning, after you have begun building a foundation of trust and validity as to what your Essence is, you may then simply ACT as Essence.
       
      [TCB] Clarification Question: You said that the lives in Delphi are ‘complete experiences’. I understand this, yes. But I would like clarification on why you said that they ‘have no bearing’ on this life, in terms of essence. It seems to me that all completed essence experiences would be available to be ‘drawn from’ in the current life, if one chooses to make such ‘contact’ with that ‘past experience’ and learning gained. Just wanted to get some clarification.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We never said that the experience had no bearing on Essence, only on the present lifetime, referring to the Personality. You are correct that all gained experiences as Essence are accessible to any lifetime. If one were to choose to connect to that lifetime, it is the fragment's choice. In lifetimes where an experience is completed, it is rare that Personality can gain from drawing on it in the present, if the lifetime currently has no way to utilize the experiences. If the lifetime currently has a practical way to utilize a past life, it will be connected to it regardless anyway.
       
      We were answering your question in the form you asked it originally. And as far as the members of your group in the list go, only a few have incomplete experiences from those lives in Delphi. This means for most, there is little to be “brought to bear” from that time.
       
      We are gathering that you have some possible inclinations as to what the experiences were focused on in those lives. It may surprise you that they were far less spiritual than you might have guessed. Most from the list were not so metaphysically inclined, but were taking lives of Flow and Re-evaluation during a time when things were relatively secure. Creativity, sexual indulgence, spiritual perusal, were all able to be lavished into the heart's content of THAT Personality. Your Personality presently might find the means of the previous Personality's exploration to be rather repugnant.
       
      [TCB] Can't remembering such past lives serve to balance certain aspects of the current life experience, or ‘personality’, if so chosen?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      This does not mean they cannot access or draw from those lives, if they choose. We only say that the context is entirely different in this time frame.
       
      We feel exploring past lives that have no relevance can be most useful if seen in terms of a soul's scrapbook. Otherwise, it is nearly the same as saying that what your Mother learned, so have you by default, or what your Sister learned, you can use as a skill. “YOU” are a completely different design than another life and it is distressing to the present you when compared or when seeking to draw skills that are “not yours”. This can be likened to a parent telling a child that they could be “more like your brother”.
       
      Understanding lives that are relevant, ones that will impact you with or without conscious exploration, this is where the breakthroughs are, where the talents and insights and motivations can be gained, and this happens without need for consciousness. But, as always, you may choose your explorations any way you feel inclined.
       
      We will conclude then. There will always be more to gain from exchanging on all of these topics.
       
      Goodnight.

      Conscious Connection to Essence
       
      Note: This series continues in Michael Speaks -- Conscious Connection to Essence (2 of 3).
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We are here. One moment. Welcome to your New Year. We realize and understand the significance of this marking, as it is an ingredient of human sentience to measure time with great marks. It also marks the close of one of the more unusual “windows” for a Nexus (parallel shift), which has not gone unnoticed by many of you.
       
      As we move into this topic, “creating conscious connection to Essence”, we feel it best to have it an on-going discovery on your part, a journey of remembering, or a journey of re-connection.
       
      You will always “embody” or express Essence, even if only minutely. It is never a matter of “finding” Essence or seeking Essence, it is always about becoming CONSCIOUS of Essence. When you, as Personality, are lacking consciousness in direction or action, feelings, thoughts, etc., you are limiting Essence’s expression, but you can never truly limit Essence. You merely limit your personal intimacy with Essence.
       
      Essence will freely allow a Personality to run “amok” or fall into fear and pain, though these experiences are ALWAYS as a result of a Personality’s decisions. Essence inherently steers a life away from these, but Personality is invaluable to Essence and Essence can never know what “burns” unless at least ONE version of a Personality touches the “fire” so to speak. For those experiences, Essence is deeply grateful, even if it, itself, is inclined more toward what the nature of a particular universe is.
       
      In this case, your universe is EXPANDING, therefore Essence seeks expansion as well. Expansion is recognized in terms of pleasure, fulfillment, happiness, joy, and love… those things that give Personality pleasure are in synchronicity and alignment with Essence. This is so, regardless of temporary social mores, standards and judgments of the time.
       
      As we said, the journey toward enhancing your conscious connection to Essence will be paved with your own realizations, questions, and sharing.
       
      [debo] Regarding conscious connection to essence–If one is talking to essence and continuing a dialogue going during a day–is this as valid as meditating and connecting to one’s higher self? It seems too easy in a way.
       
      We will begin with the question posed by the fragment known as “debo” here.
       
      One moment.
       
      In answer to debo and her question: You have addressed a very subtle factor in many Personalities seeking conscious contact with Essence.
       
      Having and maintaining contact with Essence is always thought of in terms of something “other than” self; something more extravagant, more magickal, more ‘something’ than the Personality, itself. Therefore, it is many times assumed that contact with Essence must be marked by some kind of initiation, ritual, or euphoric sense of knowing, some complicated/complex passage. This is simply not true, though it certainly can be your decision if you require such meaning for your progress.
       
      What helps put things into perspective is that Essence not only CREATED you, as you know it, but also NEEDS you. You are its eyes, its heart, its hands, its feet, its face, and its fantastic world of physical sensation. It is blind without you. It is blind in many ways while dealing with the Physical Plane. As you are, in as many ways, without it. This means Essence listens to you with great depth of compassion, commitment, and interest.
       
      While Essence can see your larger contexts, your Agreements, your Karma, and many other factors that are not necessary for you, as Personality, to know, it innocently has no idea how important a good night’s sleep is, how important it is to you to be held, or how a bowl of cherries might make your day. You, as Personality, “feed” this information to Essence as you experience it. While some of you “speak” to Essence and continually co-create the life, many of you use your Instinctive Centered years or Instinctive Reviews (individually) for “uploading” or updating your Essence.
       
      Many of you may feel you “speak” to Essence to no avail, but we suggest that if you are feeling along these lines, you are not speaking to Essence, you are simply in need of more tangible and physical support. It is valid and important that you seek this out. Essence cannot magickally “rescue” you; it is as interested in your panic and plight. You are all capable of making changes in your life that you seek, and you are all capable of reaching out for others. When it appears Essence isn’t “listening”, try reaching out for or allowing a “spirit in the flesh” into your life.
       
      So, in answer to your question or comment, debo, it is usually quite a wonderful experience for a Personality to address its Essence on a daily basis, even if simply in words and thought. It teaches Essence about the more subtle aspects of the life. Otherwise, this is only extracted upon life review, or during Instinctive reviews.
       
      What we will be working toward in this journey, is a sense of Essence BEING you, not just being spoken to by you. We will speak more on this later as the class consciousness builds.
       
      [Barry] I’m wrestling with the phrase “creating a conscious connection to Essence”. Would you explain what you mean by “conscious”? Do you mean a waking knowledge of the essence that is us? How do we know when we have achieved this? Are there different methods of doing this best suited for each of us?
       
      [Michael_Entity] What we mean by ‘conscious’ here is basically a code word for “acceptance”. In many of your cases, Essence is distanced to a great degree, even if honored by you. Another way of describing this class topic may be “choosing to accept your Essence” and all that that implies.
       
      [Barry] You make it sound like that implies a lot….
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      As you progress through this class, you have the opportunity to not only experience your Essence INTIMATELY, but to allow Essence to experience YOUR world intimately. The possibilities to blur your lines of differentiation are high.
       
      For each Role, there will be different paths, yes, and when you are maintaining a sense of Essence daily, it will be rare to find your world threatening, unsafe, unloving, or disappointing. This, then, is part of the symptoms that will allow you to “know” of your conscious connection.
       
      [Barry] We will be in a “state” of LOVE?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We cannot answer that yet as we would need to determine whether we are talking about the same thing. Most of you do not comprehend what Love is as a universal truth but usually refer to the sensations or peripheral counterparts stirred by connections and relief. We might suggest that the sensations are the first signs that you are near Love, but most have not grasped the reality and implications of what Love truly is.
       
      We will be outlining the Roles and their potential “paths” to consciousness as we build here tonight. We wanted to hear your questions tonight to help us better customize our interactions with you in regards to this topic.
       
      [MBV] I seem to have a hard time seeing through the haze of my Overleaves. Could Michael give me some examples of the artisan role in essence that would help me identify those qualities which is my essence speaking to me? Would these qualities be true for all artisans?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      You have long survived as Personality “alone” and it is Good Work that you acknowledge your strengths as such. It is a confusion that Essence must be involved in all undertakings while you are Physical or it implies you are “lost”, but this is not true. The entire basis of parallel realities is to allow the Personality its varying versions and ideas about what the life “should”/”could”/”might” be like. Essence has it’s “original plan”, but it relishes in the creativity that a Personality might run with.
       
      In your case, Mary, you have “branched” and “branched”, so to speak, far from the “trunk” of your original plans, drawing in realms of extreme experiences that were not necessarily Essence’s “idea”, but are enriching your collective self entirely. You have now found yourself being drawn back into Essence after exhausting a creative path as desired by Personality. This is the motivation behind your questions and feelings. In this process, your first glances in recognizing Essence will appear to be “in a haze” as you have always as Personality been “your own strength”.
       
      You now seek Essence as a resource in addition to “you” as you know you. You will have to “get to know” Essence again. In your case, your “unruly”, giddy, untamed flows of energy are your Essence flowing and speaking. In most cases when you’ve “heard this voice” you funnel this energy “reasonably” or hold it off until “appropriate”, as this has become one of your strengths: to “behave”. As you bring more of your Essence in and your world starts to align to it, you will find the balance that will allow safety and peace, with no threat to your security built. For now and over the next three months or so it might be expected that you feel very disoriented, moody, extreme in emotion, as you relinquish some of your Personality’s precious and justified hold.
       
      We will address more of this privately and personally. We will also note here that there are, yes, certain qualities that each Role can recognize as being in Essence, but they are only references. It is always an individual discovery. In your case, you, as Personality, are discovering that you and Essence can “play” without getting into “trouble”.
       
      [debo] If we are maintaining a sense of Essence and are seeking joy and pleasure but instead feel disappointment, is this due to unrealistic expectation? How do we know what is a valid path for Essence to experience (our chosen source of) joy, and what is not valid?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      If what you seek is being called “joy” and “pleasure” but ending in disappointment, then you are not perceiving the truth of that situation. Joy ends in Joy. Pleasure ends in Pleasure. There is no exception. If what you seek is based on the IDEA of joy or pleasure, you may want to reassess if the results are proving otherwise. Another valid consideration is that the situation may simply be a larger context than that which gives you joy and therefore must be examined in parts.
      For instance, to say you love to eat does not mean you enjoy the full, overblown sense after, or the gas, or the heartburn, etc. It may simply be a matter of altering the experience so the emphasis is on the joyful part, EATING, but with more conscious moderation so as to eliminate that which creates a less joyful or even disappointing end. You may enjoy eating, but not eating certain foods, or so much at a time. It usually only takes a moment, but certain commitment, to dissect or clarify exactly what it is that is pleasurable in the seeking, and how to adapt or alter those parts less appealing.
       
      “Unrealistic Expectation” does lead to disappointment, but this can be used to your advantage. If EXPECTATION is instead seen as enthusiasm, and DISAPPOINTMENT is seen as knowledge, then much is gained. This is an entire topic unto itself.
       
      As for the “validity” of a path for Essence: this is determined through your personal sense of happiness. In fact, that is the main question for the next three months from Essence as the Instinctive is moved through: “does this contribute to my happiness?”
       
      Happiness, at least in this universe, is a navigational tool for Personality.
       
      If you are unhappy, and you know it, this is good. This means you are honest with yourself.
       
      Being honest with you allows empowerment.
       
      Empowerment is implemented through planning.
       
      Planning is carried out through creativity and enthusiasm.
       
      Creativity and enthusiasm is sustained by seeking pleasure/happiness.
       
      Pleasure and happiness are guaranteed when being “present” in your life.
       
      Being “present” in your life means you are being honest.
       
      Though this is a crudely displayed path in words, with some examination you will see its merit. Each of these facets (6) revolve around a central concept that might be considered “living”, completing a septant for change.
      More on this later.
       
      [nemo999] I feel cut off from my essence; is it that I want to control it or I am not accepting/unhappy?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      You are never truly cut off from Essence, but Essence can be cut off BY you as Personality, at least in terms of conscious connection. In your longing for Essence, it is doubtful you are cut off in any case; Essence responds immediately to any thought in its “direction”. In other words, it may not be Essence you seek or miss, but the “essence” of something else. Nemo, you have experienced losses that still require grieving. Grieving is acceptance of some “hard” truths for the Personality.
       
      It would not be amiss at this point in your life to “go back” to what you have lost, indulge in the grief as a process, allowing freedom for that energy, thus making space for something more. For now, it appears you are still hoping or holding out for a revision of a time since passed. You are not alone or cut off from Essence, Nemo, quite the opposite. You are a tremendously sensitive body, it appears, and your Personality and Essence will change your scenario when you are done with the feelings being explored.
       
      We remind you all that this forum is difficult to “skim” over your very important and personal lives, so we suggest taking our responses as PART of a larger response, not a complete response. We just do not, through this format and channel, have the space or time available to be effective for all of you on that level.
       
      To summarize, Nemo, determine what tangible thing it is in your life you miss. Your answers can be revealed in that. You are looking “UP” for answers when you might want to look “back”.
       
      [rion] When meditating I have at times felt a very loving presence which I interpreted to be Essence. However, people channel and are in contact with “other”. What is essence and what is “other”? How does one tell?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      In all cases of channeling, meditating, etc., it is ALWAYS your Essence which makes first contact.
       
      In the same way that you cannot interact with “other” without a Personality while Physically extant, so too is it impossible to contact nonphysical “others” without Essence as the medium.
       
      In reaching out during meditation or channeling without specificity, you can rest assured it is Essence in some way. If you seek contact with nonphysical “others” specifically, Essence will act as medium.
       
      So our answer is, in creating specificity this allows you as Essence and Personality to differentiate the subtleties between self and other. This can be done only with practice, as many beginning attempts for contact with “other” are almost entirely based on filtering of many sorts. To understand this, observe your experiences when meeting a new stranger, physically, between Personalities. This will lend you insights into how you will differentiate subtleties nonphysically. For some, interaction with another person to determine “who” that person is may last a few minutes, for others a few years or more.
       
      In your case, you are adept at “reading” a person and this also spills into your explorations in the non-physical.
       
      We can also suggest you attach symbolism to what you know you want to contact. For instance, you can ask that Essence present itself as a certain colour, feeling or sound. This then would help you determine differences when touching other sources.
       
      [Sandra51] I understand that the Chakra system and Essence has a connection. Would you describe this in relation to the topic tonight? In a nutshell, ha ha.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We will touch on it briefly, but will get a more succinct transcript out for Otterly and your discussion list later.
       
      As you explore your conscious connection to Essence, you will also be heightening your sense of self as a Personality. As you explore your sense of self as a person, you will make more room for Essence in your life. It is a two way street, so to speak.
       
      In exploring yourself on either level, it is important to examine your “rights” as a physical being and your expression of those “rights” and/or the damage or interference to those “rights”.
       
      For each chakra, or Center, there is a basic “right” that the Personality must have tended to fully embody the Essence. We say “embody” as a convenience, as it is actually the opposite. YOU as Personality are embodied in Essence.
       
      You most basic “right”, relating to the Instinctive, is your right to exist, or be alive at all. The right to be real. This can also be said to be your right to “have”.
       
      Your second Center/Chakra must be examined in terms of your right to feel, experience intimacy, and create.
       
      Your third chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to take action, or to make change. Another way to put it is your right to be free.
       
      Your fourth chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to be loved, and to love.
       
      Your throat chakra, or 5th Center, is your right to the truth, whether speaking it, or hearing it.
       
      Your 6th chakra/Center can be examined in terms of your right to perceive, to have vision. This can also be said to be your right to dream, on all levels.
       
      And finally, your 7th Chakra/Center is your examination of your right to spirituality, or your right to ” inner knowledge”.
       
      Though we skimmed these, the slightest examination of these areas of your life can be revealing in what Centers/Chakras are not being cared for or possibly denied, thus blocking Essence. They may have also been damaged or imprinted with allowances from other fragments in the life.
       
      The three “lower centers” (3rd, 4th, and 5th) are all the most obvious and easily examined. They are the keys to balancing Personality. In fact, these centers can potentially be examined with a degree of accuracy, at least as a starting point, in your translating your personal Centering in your Overleaves. When looking at your Centering it might be said that your primary centering is the right you SUSTAIN, while the PART of the centering is the right you “FIGHT FOR”.
       
      We remind you that Emotional Centering is your right to feel, Intellectual Centering is your right to speak or hear truth, and Moving is your right to act out or make change.
       
      The Instinctive Center is always under examination and use so it is almost always in some form of distortion without conscious guidance. This is balanced through creating a daily balance among your “lower centers”.
       
      The “higher centers” (2nd, 6th, and 7th) are keys to your understanding your connection to Essence. With examination, if any of these centers appear to be limited or distorted through fear or imprinting, it will be your task to incorporate experiences which fulfill that level of your rights, if you choose.
       
      We will conclude here then. Goodnight.

      Open Floor
       
      [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. This is Michael. One moment. As usual, we will simply start with an Open Floor. You may begin your questions.
       
      [Lights_Edge] In Quantum Physics there is the Orthodox Ontology to explain the nature of the world. This Ontology contends there is quantum randomness. It is used to explain why occurrences such as two hydrogen atoms excited at the same having the exact same proxy wave will emit a photon and return to their ground state at differing times. Is this quantum randomness truly random or is a force present effecting the differing outcomes?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs. There is a predictable “force” that has yet to be capable of being measured, contained, or conceived of by science, yet. From the current perspectives available, there does appear randomness, but a “force” will eventually be recognized. The theories behind what that “force” may be, presently, is limited. The depiction of “randomness” as a theory is simply an exasperated conclusion.
       
      [Kathie89] I have a question about Cadence Mates. Who has the closest ties: those in the same row on the same side of love, truth or energy, or those with the same position sharing the 3 different sides? Are there any cadence mates present tonight?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The closest ties will be those within the 7, whether you “see” them in rows or columns. The seven fragments comprising a single Cadence within a Greater Cadence. There are variations on the links and the definition of Cadence Members can be extended. For instance, a Cadre of Entities is a group of Cadence Mates, technically.
       
      Additionally, the first fragment of each Greater Cadence within a role is linked, as is the second, etc. The first fragment from a Cadence is also linked to the second cast fragment of the second Cadence in the second Greater Cadence, etc. This can be seen as a “diagonal” visual of links. The first fragment of each entity, regardless of Role is linked to the same fragments in the same position within their own Entities. 6 out of 7 times, these are Essence Twins. Though your Energy Ring does not follow the “Classic Model.”
       
      As far as Cadence Members being present here tonight, we do not have the focus available through this channel in this forum to look determine this. A little investigation on your part can determine this fairly easily.
       
      [Annette] When you gave Troy my profile, you mentioned an intimate connection between us when you were physical. Could you tell me more? Was I ever able to be of service to you and does this connection have an effect on why I am so drawn to this group?
       
      [Michael_Entity] We have a particularly profound link to you from over 10,000 years ago. Certain events of an Intellectually profound magnitude still affect an Entity while in the Causal. Though we cannot equate our resonance to some fragments still extant as “emotional,” there are events that we are still processing related to these fragments. In our case with your Essence, which we must differentiate from the Personality known as Annette, several fragments from our Entity learned some of our greatest lessons about “god” through you while we were physical. This greatly affected our pursuit and final cycling off. Since the effect was of a profound Intellectual nature, we are “affected” by this and respond to the resonance. This happens occasionally. We must note that this does not make a fragment more or less meaningful to us; we merely share the reality and nature of interaction as it comes about.
       
      [Barb] Good evening, Michael. We have been discussing lately the possibility of an Infinite Soul manifesting very soon (as in this month) in the form of a woman. Would you discuss the probability of this occurring?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Speculation of that nature can only be that, “speculation.” When the Infinite Soul manifests, it will be known without question. Considering the Infinite Soul is of the utmost compassionate and intelligent capacity, variations in manifesting can fluctuate at any moment. We can say with some degree of accuracy that the female who would host the Infinite Soul is alive, as is the child, who may manifest first. The probability of the Infinite Soul making itself publicly known within this month or the next six months for that matter is quite low. We say this based on our perception at the moment. We do not believe a manifestation would occur before end of 2001, at this point.
       
      [Dewliet] Hi Michael. In a recent session, you referenced a “time” when I had three bodies on this planet simultaneously. I'm wondering “when/where” fragments typically “meet up” with those types of “other selves” to assimilate and process information, and how this process differs from that of information gleaned from parallels. Do we have to “wait” until we reach the Causal plane before we learn what our “other selves” know?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      When an Essence maintains more than one body within a time frame, they are treated as any incarnation would be treated. They are not the same as Parallel Selves, which exist within different dimensions, or frequencies. These are physical bodies within the same space and time. When one of the Personalities dies, it will process the life as would any other incarnation. Essence has a vast perspective and can either begin another life based on the experiences of that particular Personality's experiences, even while another body is still alive, or “wait” for the various bodies to complete that overlapping time frame before gauging a new life.
       
      In terms of Parallels, there not only parallel Earths and Lives, but Parallel Astral Planes and Causal Planes, created from the momentum of Entity choices, collectively. Parallels begin integration after the Causal.
       
      [MaryBV] I feel much “better” being in my skin these days. Could you comment on the energy around us at the moment, and have we turned a corner into calmer waters?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It would not be amiss to lend validation to the Centering for a Year. Last year was Instinctive Centered, giving rise to a great deal of agitation, fear, automatic reactions, and processing. This year, being Intellectually Centered (Troy's original channeling of Moving Centered is inaccurate) is far more comfortable for most of you. An Intellectually Centered year can lend a great deal of perspective to what has come to pass. If most of you “look” back over the previous year, for most it will “feel” as if it never was, or that it was passed through in a daze.
       
      Great changes were made last year that may have appeared to be deeply challenging, but now you will be able to “see” how much you have cleared and the room created in your life can start to move energy in ways that are more comfortable and appealing.
       
      We will add to our response to Mary that this was an incomplete answer, but more universally applicable. There are personal changes you have made in perception that have moved you to the Positive Poles of Personality, as well. Though it may not have appeared so during your process, your commitment has been Good Work.
       
      [mamajo] when were the great pyramid and the two following it built, if not at the same time in our timeline? I think he is referring to the fact that they might have been built by our future selves back in the past with the aid of extraterrestrial beings.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, what you consider your “past” in several instances, was created from your “futures.” In the case of some of the Pyramids, these “were” created as a means for transportation by combined concepts of humans and “aliens” in your future. In “your” timeline, they are now a part of your past, but they are a part of your past because of a timeline that still links those structures to your future.
       
      There are several instances in your future where there is the building of practical forms of transportation between planets, the Pyramids being only one instance. Within 200 years of your future, the Pyramids are built into your past, as well as what is called Stonehenge. Much of what cannot be explained in terms of these structures being built is due to tools used from that time frame's future. The building of these structures is not a major global event in its occurrence in the future, by the way, and these structures are only more obvious and mysterious in your “past.” When it “became” relevant to create these structures from your future, the methods and implementation for time travel “were” done discreetly.
       
      The initiation of the entire sequence that leads to the building of these structures has already occurred in your current past, during what was called the “harmonic convergence” in the late 80's. In fact, the entire initiation of what has come to be called the “new age” is, in effect, directly linked in time to the initial event [in the future] surrounding the plans for the pyramids and Stonehenge. This is because the ideals and ideas that are eventually used were born of that time frame in the 1980s and are being built upon, especially from those who have concluded these structures could not have been born of what is known of the past.
       
      If your timeline parallel continues along a momentum that includes the need for the creation of the Pyramids and Stonehenge, then that timeline would experience a destruction of structures, hence leading to a “time loop” necessity for re-creating them to “try again.” It is hoped that the creation and proper implementation of these structures has secured a timeline that will allow them to simply remain a part of your mysterious history.
       
      The Great Pyramid as it sits in your current timeline helps to reduce the possibilities for catastrophic planetary quakes that, in the future, were found to have been a result of micro-cumulations that were found to have been able to be dampened and directed from that area of the planet if it had been caught in “in the past.” The Pyramid has a micro-effect, not only on the motion of the Earth, but on the movement of Time around the Earth. Most global land stability in your timeline in history can be attributed to the effects of the Pyramids that “were” built by going “back” to that most pivotal point in “the past.” Though extraterrestrial assistance is a part of this process, both those humans from “the future” and the species originating off-planet are experienced by the people of the past geographical era and time frame as “gods” and or “aliens.”
       
      Stonehenge and Easter Island are other power points upon the planet that benefited from large structures that were built as part of a kind of magnetic stabilizing network.
       
      The “charge” of these structures that was more obvious in the past has since worn off to a great extent, but the effects remain and can be measured. The bulk of land mass has been stabilized, but what has “yet” to be accomplished is a stabilizing force that carries over into the 22nd Century. The 21st Century in most parallel timelines with and without the stabilizing structures is still hit quite hard by climate and earth changes, but “so far” only those without the stabilizing structures have been met with near-extinction. Even in those timelines with the stabilizing structures placed in the past, the magnetic network falls short of sustaining through the final few “bumps in the road” manifested in the 21st Century, though they are tremendously minimized. In the timelines without these structures, it is in the beginning of the 23rd Century that the technology is available for affecting timelines. It “was” hoped that in the timelines where the structures helped minimize the catastrophes, the technology would become readily available in time for renovating and bringing “back to life” many of these stabilizing structures to help extend stability through the worst parts of the 21st Century, allowing for exponential growth that was not possible for another century in the timelines recovering from catastrophes.
       
      Though alien contact is quite usual for most humans in the late 22nd Century, it is only the simple genius of the Pyramid structures as gateways that allow for the combined forces of on and off-planet species to link from future to past, and to “go back” and help secure a more stable planet and timeline. So far, it could be said by us to be the greatest experiment we have ever studied of any sentient species we know of.
       
      We realize the nature of this scenario is fantastical, but there is more involved with your universe than is presently considered, except by some older souls.
       
      [Paulyboy] I have a question regarding video and role-playing games. These are two mediums which I enjoy ‘playing’ in. Are these simply things that we can “lose” ourselves in as opposed to doing our “life,” or could it be the life, etcetera? So I think the question is, is it something to “lose yourself in,” or are these mediums, and all the jazz about them, limited to a case by case appraisal? Personally, I have questions about this.
       
      [Michael_Entity] As with every other physical manifestation on your planet, these games are portions of the psyche, soul, and mind manifest. It is said that the brain's use is only approximately 10%, but this is not so. You merely need 10% for the use of perception and interpretation; 90% or so is used to generate reality. For instance, your physical means of communication is Telepathy manifest. Your film industry is dreaming, manifest. Video “role playing” has existed for as long as the human has existed. It is a means of grappling with the variations of the core Personality, giving rise to the sub-personalities with permission. Therefore, role-playing is Sub-personalities, manifest. Regardless of the depth or brevity of the “game,” its purpose remains the same.
       
      [Hector07] Is there ordinality and cardinality present as to cadre within an energy ring? If this is so, would it have four cardinal points, as in 1, 4, 7 and 10?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Cardinality and Ordinality no longer apply on that level, only Positions within the Support Group.
       
      [Barry] Earlier tonight, you said, “Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs.” My question is: there has been much debate throughout history on whether our fate is predetermined or if we have free will. It sounds like you are saying that the functioning or “fate” of the universe is predetermined.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We did not say that, nor did we imply it. We merely say there is an awesome order to events that, at this point, escape the perceptions of scientist and their tools. We do not imply predictability, either; simply that the theory of “randomness” is not accurate. On the level of the reality being explored, “Quantum Reality,” you are literally attempting to grasp the dynamics of the Higher Moving Center or the Buddhaic Plane. Of course, it is only a minute manifestation of it, but it is part of that fabric, nonetheless. In the grasping of the Higher Moving Center, you will fall into the Positive Pole of Beauty or the Negative Pole of Chaos. We do not imply that Chaos is incorrect, but that it is the relinquishing of recognition of patterns. Recognizing patterns, whether within the life or the level of Quantum Physics, is Beauty, or Oneness.
       
      Relegating an event to the theory of Randomness is lack of recognition of those patterns. The pursuit toward recognizing those patterns is part of all sentients’ eventual growth. Certain fragments, entities, and cadres will pursue this for the species. We will state here that because a pattern can be observed, either in probabilities or retrospect, does not remove the concept of “free will.” Consider your weather: It cannot be predicted, but you have entire television networks and time slots devoted to it and counted on. The patterns have been recognized and can be perceived. Knowing whether it will be stormy tomorrow or sunny does not remove your ability to choose, nor can the knowledge of the probabilities for weather be entire relied upon.
       
      [nemo999] What are the rules for giving us information? I don't believe we can just ask you for a cure for aids. Also, the scientific information seems to be limited to the knowledge of the channel and most people are not science types to ask about quantum physics or quantum gravity, basically some things we need to learn for ourselves not depend on channeling.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      All channeling will be limited to some degree by the channel's level of education, insight, and soul age, but this can be transcended in many cases, depending on the self-esteem and beliefs of that particular fragment. The channel you know as Troy has little education in regard to history and geography, but prefers this, as this allows him a sense of validation when information transcends his own knowledge. This is one of the ma…………………
       
      [SECTION OF TRANSCRIPT LOST]
       
      He recognizes the limitations, while openly invites the transcendence. We do not limit our responses to you. We are only limited to your questions. If information is not available for a particular subject, which can be the case, we respond accordingly. We do not speculate, except in terms of probabilities.
       
      [nemo999] Would it be possible to channel a cure for aids for example?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      This disease would have to exist first. What most seek in terms of a “cure,” by the way, is a removal of the lesson, which we are incapable of doing. What is sought as a “cure” in many cases is removal of pain, as well, which is not the cure. What we would suggest as a cure for something would not be orthodox or traditional, but an implementation of perception of self and other to a degree that extinguishes Chief Feature. Additionally, there is no “cure-all.” There will be foundations that can be shared as a basis in approaching an illness, but the individual would determine what the actual “cure” is.
       
      We will comment again that the fragment known as Louise Hayes has done Good Work in the progress toward “cures,” but has limited her presentation and practical implementation to a commercially acceptable scale. More work on that Task will continue through others and into other lives.
       
      We will conclude here. Good Night.

      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.
       
      [M Entity]
      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.
       
      ROLE: Sage
      CENTERING: Emotional/Intellectual
      GOAL: Acceptance
      MODE: Passion
      ATTITUDE: Spiritualist
      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.
       
      [M Entity]
      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 ?
       
      [M Entity]
      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?
       
      [M Entity]
      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?
       
      [M Entity]
      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?”]
       
      [M Entity]
      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.
