    Education Part One

     

    [M_Entity]

    The topic of Education is a broad one. We will be sharing some basic considerations we believe would help fragments begin a life with optimum potential and development of personal tools.

     

    “Education” begins within 48 hours of Physical Birth. The Body is a complete sensory unit and focal point “into” the Physical Plane for Essence at that time. We say the Body is “complete” as a sensory unit at that time because, relative to later influences, certain senses may or may not be heightened or diminished over time.

     

    For the first 7 years of a life, in general, the Essence gradually “moves in.” Essence does not live through the Body before that period of time, though there are exceptions. During the first 7 years, past life Personalities of relevance, as well as Essence, “care” for the Body and direct it and those fragments of importance around it for as many opportunities for imprinting as possible. When we say the “Essence and past Personalities direct those of importance,” we do not imply this is done through deceit or imposition. It is done through Agreement formation and fulfillment in most cases, or Karma.

     

    However the Body is cared for and guided, between the ages of 2 and 3 the Centering has become habit. This then would become one of its Overleaves. This is the first Overleaf of importance in determining the beginnings of Education on a higher level than primal.

     

    Children, then, can easily be said to be from three basic groups: Moving Centered, Intellectually Centered, and Emotionally Centered. There are, of course, those who are Instinctive Centered, and we will address these rare fragments another time.

     

    If intentional Education is addressed to fragments before the age of 7, it is helpful to acknowledge their primary Centering during that time as the priority.

     

    Moving Centered children, indicated many times by Physical symptoms in the skin (barring basic “diaper rash”) and tendencies to hit, bounce, stand, and/or pull more strongly, would gain more from focus on toys that encourage the EARS or HEARING.

     

    Intellectually Centered children, indicated many times by far more vocalizations, screaming, and “tantrums,” would do well with an emphasis on toys that require physical contact, touching.

     

    Emotionally Centered children, indicated many times by more quiet, smiling, and “good” babies, would do well with an emphasis on toys which require balance, combining, and color. (Emotionally Centered children see color far earlier than other children.)

     

    Before we continue, we will pause for questions about educating children up the age of 7. Are there any questions?

     

    [ClaireN] How does the environment affect learning?

     

    [M_Entity]

    If you consider the basic route of education for the child under 7 years of age, then it could be said that any emphasis on the more distracting influences could diminish learning. It could also be said that an OVER emphasis can be damaging. For instance if an Emotionally Centered child has a focus on Hearing, they may lose the important development from the more complementary route of Color, Balance, and Combining. Then again, if they are overexposed to harsh colors and chaos, they may tend to inhibit all interest in anything to complement their Centering. If an Intellectually Centered child has more of a focus on Hearing and Music, for another example, they may lose the important shaping from the more complementary need for Touch and Physical Interaction; though if they are carelessly touched, or indifferently cared for, they can be greatly damaged.

     

    As you can see, most caretakers intuitively provide ALL of the possible complementary toys and methods for education. But we can say that if an emphasis of a healthier development is a consideration, the more specific suggestions are important.

     

    Did this answer your question?

     

    [ClaireN] Yes, thank you.

     

    [M_Entity]

    You may have noticed that what we have suggested as educational focus is not primary to the Centering that is developing. Instead, it is complementary in that the emphasis will create a contrast to create a “rounding out” of the Center, creating less of an opportunity for the Center to live in a TRAP or PART, later. By the Age of 7, the Part is a habit. The greater the comprehension and strength of the Center by that time, the less it depends on a Part, but instead, uses ALL Parts appropriately.

     

    From the Age of 7, the focus of Education would best be geared toward defining the “Primary Essence Influence.” We say “Primary Essence Influence” because Essence may or may not be supported by the Overleaves as they rest on a predominate Axis. When it comes to a lifetime, especially before the 4th Internal Monad, the Personality, as the OVERLEAVES define it, is the most important concern, not necessarily the Role of Essence. Emphasizing discovering the Personality and its focus is key in allowing Essence to manifest as clearly and consistently as possible later in life.

     

    With that being said, it must be considered that past the age of 7, Education must address 3 very vital areas of the Personality: The Goal, the Mode, and the Attitude. Currently, those with an emphasis on Overleaves resting on the Inspiration, Expressive Axes are lost to the emphasis on the Moving and Assimilative Axes.

     

    Creative, Inspiring activities and outlets are not available in any meaningful way until after what is called High School, in most cases. Because the system is focused on only supporting only the Moving or Assimilative Axes, even if programs are in place for Expression and Inspiration, they are ridiculed, belittled, and under-funded, separating that group of Personalities in potentially detrimental ways.

     

    We suggest an overhaul of this basic inconsiderate system of education by not only creating methods of teaching that accommodate each Axis, but also accommodate each area of important development in terms of the Goal, Mode, and Attitude. This would mean teaching children from the primary axis of Inspiration through methods that encourage Emotional associations, feelings, and intuition. Teaching children from the primary axis of Action to be taught through sports, physical interaction, and tactile methods. Teaching Expressive Axis children through stories, expression, acting, communication, art, performance and stage.

     

    This is highly simplistic, but we realize the time frame we have through this channel is limited.

     

    Using the appropriate methods based on Axis, the school “day” would then be emphasized in 3 segments, each focusing on either the Goal, Mode, or Attitude. This basically means developing and encouraging the basic tendencies and interests of the child as he or she has shown interest (the goal), teaching the very basics of intimacy, sexuality, relationships, and exposure to varying cultures (the Mode). Teaching the 7 basic philosophies on the planet (the attitude).

     

    We cannot emphasize enough the importance of teaching the 7 basic philosophies before or during the teen years. If there is one, single aspect of education that condemns a society to unhealthy development and division, it is in the lack of understanding your own personal perceptions/philosophy and those of others.

     

    We will add here that we have not forgotten the Assimilative Axis. This Axis, of all of them, is the most adaptable and would gravitate itself toward the Axis most meaningful at varying points of development. The irony is in the “backward” approach to using, instead, the whole of Assimilation as the means to teach, rather than allowing those who are naturally Assimilative to adapt.

     

    We will pause here for questions, noting that this topic is far from concluded here, though the time is running out. If there are no more questions, we will conclude here.

     

    [JNelson] How do the Overleaves figure into how to teach a specific subject matter that a culture has already decided to teach? For instance, how would you teach Inspiration or Emotionally inclined fragments about math?

     

    [M_Entity]

    The premise of a subject would not change. In the case of Math, of course the focus must be on objects and their relation to each other. For each Axis, it is not necessarily that the means to teach would vary so wildly, but that the emphasis in the environment would change.

     

    For instance, the Inspirational children would learn Math based in an environment that is less structured, more intuitive, and made room for feelings. The Expressive children would learn through socializing, acting out the theories in story or song, and playing.

     

    A stereotypical classroom for the Inspirational children would be calmer, working with 3 dimensional representations, and using discussion, guessing, and emotional language. A Stereotypical classroom for the Expressive children would be boisterous, loud, using humor, food, and smells and lots and lots of personal associations to learn. The difference we propose is that a room with structure, pen and paper, and facing forward, are only specifically beneficial to Assimilation, and secondarily to Action. Beanbags chairs, toys, and stage, regardless of the subject, would keep a Sage’s or Artisan’s attention in any subject all the way through High School.

     

    Although we are not complete on this subject, we will conclude here. We will continue this subject at the request of our students, if the interest is there.

     

    Good Night.

      August 3, 2014
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      [Ty] I've been interested in the not-so-commonly held Historicist interpretation of the Book of Revelation lately: Could Michael comment on their perspective of what exactly is the deal with that piece of writing? (like what it means, etc)
       
      [MEntity]
      To examine this writing, particularly in terms of its reinterpretations of reinterpretations, would be quite a task, as there are such personal and nuanced symbolism within it that builds upon itself within particular contexts set. For example, if one were to explore the meaning of a dream where one sees a red wand that is suspended by light while swimming in a lake, one would have several elements here to explore before fully comprehending the symbolic language in its parts and as a whole as a message.
       
      So for simplistic purposes, we will say that, overall, the writing is a personal account of this individual's sense of his world ending, or transforming. It is not prophetic, and was never meant to be prophetic.
       
      It was never meant to refer to the world beyond his known world.
       
      [Ty] So things that appear to match up quite well historically would be coincidence?
       
      [MEntity]
      To apply this individual's dreams to relevance in time beyond himself is about as useful as reading any one of our student's dream journals in your community as a means to gain insight into your own life.
       
      Historically, there may be significance, but not beyond his own time.
       
      Depending on the version one is reading, the altering of words to retrofit more recent history (relatively speaking) can be fairly high.
       
      It is natural for imagination to find patterns, and then this must be navigated with intelligence to sort through which are valid. For example, there are many who feel that there is significance to a particular time seen on a digital clock when that is rarely the case. It simply happens that it is a pattern that you can extract from your experiences.
       
      Some patterns are ignored because there is intelligence involved. For example, going in and out of your front door of your home is not a startling event of significance, even though it is far more likely a pattern of significance and consistency than a digital clock read out.
       
      nd though a digital clock read out will never amount to more than an amusing synchronicity, many will impose mysterious significance upon it.
       
      [Ty] Sounds like you're talking about Angel Numbers
       
      [GeraldineB] 11:11
       
      [MEntity] We use these more accessible examples as a means to point to the same process being used when interpreting writing, dreams, and records from the past as seen as prophecy.
       
      [Ty] Some of the writing claim in themselves to be prophecies, such as he book of Daniel from the OT
       
      [MEntity]
      We once described a "future" to our students as including homes that were partly triangular shape, connected by strands of light that were used for instant travel. This was met with oohs and ahhhs until we pointed out that we were describing the roofs of homes currently on the block, connected by cables of electricity and television and internet, which allowed for instant "travel."
       
      Our point being that our description of the present in more poetic terms could be interpreted outside of time and in any number of ways. This is how some historic writing is in nature, as well.

      [GeraldineB] I'd like to ask for followup information about how wide-spread Transcendental Souls are spread out through out society. You've alluded to it previously as many are unknown people outside of their local area. Recently, you said that several comedians were TSs -- is this in the full sense of being O6s or in a particular way they are functioning?
       
      [MEntity]
      We do not think we referred to these fragments as Transcendental Souls, but as teachers/channels for Entities.
       
      These are distinctly different contexts.
       
      [GeraldineB] ooh ok -- I thought the term TS was used --
       
      [GeraldineB] then, please explain what you did mean
       
      [MEntity] For example, Troy is not a Transcendental Soul, he is a channel for us. Troy is not of our Entity, and therefore will never be a Transcendental Soul representing us. For us to be a Transcendental Soul, a fragment from our own Entity must incarnate. A Transcendental Soul is born, not channeled, though the fragment born does act as a channel for his or her Entity.
       
      [GeraldineB] oooooh
       
      [GeraldineB] But, you are cycled off
       
      [MEntity]
      Many comedians, healers, dancers, artists, etc are teachers/or channels for Entities with a teaching, just like us.
       
      Different Entities teach in different ways through different Centers. Our Teaching is Intellectually based, while including the Emotional and Moving. More Movement-based teachings require channels who move, use the body more, and/or have more direct access to students, such as dancers and healers.
       
      And so on.
       
      All True Teachings include all Centers, but are based in different ways. We do not provide healing energy, nor do we inspire through a pirouette, but we still heal and inspire.
       
      [Maureen] Which center did Seth teach through?
       
      [MEntity]
      Intellectual, of course.
       
      If the teaching is vocal, it is Intellectual.
       
      All Entities as they pass through the Causal will teach the Physical Plane in some way, so there must be a multitude of channels and methods of teaching.
       
      The variation of Parallels allows for all Entities to have sets of parallels that are focused on their collection of students. Within that set, there will be at least one parallel where the incarnation as Transcendental Soul is fulfilled.
       
      As for the state of Transcendental Souls on the planet, there are very few in this parallel.

      [Kurtis]
      Hi Michael, in the OMW section of this site I found some nifty information on how Aggression and Power Modes evolve intimacy.
       
      "...Aggression is an exalted action Overleaf. Aggression evolves intimacy by way of constant change, movement, activity, progress. One must be able to "keep up." Intimacy is nearly impossible with someone who might wish to slow you down, tame you, or fault you for constant change of focus and directions."
       
      "...Power Mode is about Being Present. It is an Expressive Overleaf, not an action, so it will be about making your presence known in some way. It is about owning your presence, being comfortable in your skin, "being yourself." In other words, how you might evolve intimacy is in how much of "you" can be present, be permitted, allowed, without shame, silencing, etc."
       
      I was wondering if you could provide the same info for how the other modes evolve intimacy like those examples.
       
      Particularly Observation, Passion and Reserve, as most students here are or slide to those modes.
       
      I don't want to take too much time off of others questions so if all other 5 can't be fit in, just cut some off of course and I can ask for them another time.
       
      [MEntity]
      For Observation Mode, it is a matter of truly seeing and being seen. The key, however, is that it is not a static state. It is an evolving, shifting, and adaptive state of seeing and being seen. Intimacy for Observation Mode is killed if someone locks him or her in one version of himself or herself. If the one in Observation does not allow for the variations and facets of others, but locks them into one preference or expectation, this begins to repel the other.
       
      For Passion Mode, intimacy is evolved through each being extensions of the other. This can show up in a range between co-dependency and co-creation. Co-dependency expects the other to represent himself or herself. Behaving in ways that are outside of the range of Passion's own behavior can be startling and divisive. This can still lead to intimacy, depending upon the relationship, because some are drawn to Passion precisely for that context of personal transformation. If this is not an understood dynamic, it can be messy.
       
      This is usually the case when Passion is used or sought for teaching.
       
      Co-creation is a dynamic of inspiration that feeds from one another as Passion learns about the self through other. This is more appealing, as both are learning then.
       
      Both are teachers.
       
      Reserve evolves in intimacy through layers of reveal. It must be experienced and processed as layers, not as a dive into a deep pool, but as a cool or warm sip at a time.
       
      As you can see, the reason Observation cannot be static is because it can slide to any of these, and each of these are valid paths of intimacy.
       
      We can elaborate upon all of these as a topic of focus, if that is requested.
       
      [ViP1] Why is it necessary for an Entity to reunite before cycling off the Astral plane to the Causal plane, as compared to fragments being able to reside on, or move to, the Causal plane without that happening first? (Or even before that, if I remember correctly, possibly by the 6th level of the Astral?) Is the sheer amount of input on the Causal plane too much for a single fragment to process without the bonding and resonance with the rest of the Entity in place?
       
      [MEntity]
      There could be two valid responses to that question. One is that your latter suggestion is true. To move through the Causal as a fragment would "destroy" the fragment. The density of the Plane is such that the physics would disintegrate the fragment. There may be more accurate words to describe this, but it is fair enough in terms of understanding it here. We can only speculate on this, of course, as no individual fragment has resided in the Causal.
       
      In much the same way that your Physical Body could not be sustained in the Astral, neither can the Astral Body be sustained in the Causal. At least, not in the way it was used in the Astral.
       
      [ViP1] ok (I thought individual fragments also had Causal bodies, but perhaps these are built such that they must "hook in" to the Causal body of the Entity as a whole?)
       
      [MEntity]
      Your response here leads to our second answer.
       
      The reason one is referred to as a fragment is because one is already a part of a whole. That whole already exists, and as one moves beyond the denser planes, that fragmentation is naturally left behind, even if the "individual" is not.
       
      Your "Causal" Bodies ARE your Entity.
       
      It is a field shared across all fragments of that Entity.
       
      As a Physical Incarnation, this may be more nuanced in its relevance to the fragment, but it is still connected across all fragments.
       
      Imagine an ice cube tray that could produce 1000 cubes. Your Entity is a perpetually replenished pitcher of water poured into that tray, divided into cubes. When frozen, that is like an incarnation. When thawed, that is like the Astral. When poured back into the pitcher, it is the Causal.
       
      So it is not so much that the fragment would be "destroyed" as an individual in the Causal, but that the very nature of progression to the Causal, naturally, requires a different state.
       
      As an ice cube, "you" are destroyed. But everything that made up that ice cube is never lost.
       
      [ViP1] and all ice cube shapes are stored in the Akashic
       
      [MEntity]
      We realize these are crude analogies, but they work.
       
      To include how the Akashic fits into this, we would have to move to a different analogy or metaphor, as it is not a Plane in which anyone resides, but is only accessed.
       
      It is more like the center of a vortex that exists because of what is spinning around it. A donut hole, if you will.
       
      [ROYCEonROIDS] Art as I know it at its best is a reflection of the mysterious, the wonder, the beyond words. As the world begins to approach an old soul paradigm in a few hundred year or so...how would art change. would it still be necessary in the ways we know it? as more PEOPLE become the reflection of that WONDER that art encapsulated, what place will ART have in that world?
       
      [MEntity]
      Though this varies among Old Soul worlds, Art escalates in range and importance among all of them. It is often no longer confined to a specific range of media or obvious creativity, but comes to include the entire life of an individual, how he or she creates his or her day, etc. This is already being glanced at in your current paradigm, though colored heavily by Young Soul filters.
       
      "Reality TV" is, at its heart, a glimpse of Old Soul Art.
       
      Becoming a celebrity only because one has become a celebrity is also a distorted form of Old Soul Art.
       
      These things may be repulsive to older souls as they are being presented now, but these hint at an undercurrent of acknowledgement of the LIFE as ART.
       
      In many Old Soul worlds, Art is entirely experiential and temporal. Exhibitions are sunsets that can never been seen again, or gatherings where spontaneous suggestions are matched up with random individuals who must then perform, create, or do the suggestion, even if it is well outside of their talents.
       
      This leads to great rounds of humor and levity that is often at the core of Old Soul arts.
       
      Interactivity is highly important to the Old Soul world of art, as well. For example, one installation we know of is something like a steep hill of xylophone-like panels that are carefully arranged in ways that an individual could dance down this hill in any number of ways to create his or her song of spontaneity.
       
      Collaborative art is highly important to the Old Soul world of art, as well. In many probabilities, holographic-like galleries are "online" for contributors to create projects that can be altered by anyone from anywhere. No walk through that gallery is met with the same version of the art.
       
      Interactivity, Collaboration, Temporal/Amorphous, and spontaneous are key traits for Old Soul arts, though we caution against presuming these traits are definitive. There is more we can say to this subject.

      [Maureen]
      I just realized that my question may tie in (indirectly) with Royce's question.
       
      "The "rise of the selfie" is pretty well accepted now as a big part of our culture, but I can see the “darker side” of it representing a self absorption and self-indulgence that seems "boundless" some days, especially on facebook where some choose very little actual dialogue and over-posting is like an epidemic. It's a one way blast of "me-ness"."
       
      Do you see that so much “self-interest” is related to
      1) incomplete 4th Internal Monads,
      2) the average Soul Age being Mature (including manifested Soul Age as well),
      3) narcissism,
      4) pure, unfettered self expression, or
      5) all of the above,
      6) something else?
      Any comment on this would be appreciated as I would really like to understand this phenomenon.
       
      [MEntity]
      At no other time in your history has there been such a shared space of celebration of the self. This is a transitional state between Young and Mature. It is beautiful to us. There was a time when it was sinful, shameful, and even evil to look in a mirror, as well as dangerous to be photographed. There was a time when disowning the self in disgust was Holy. Now you are in a time when the mundane is being celebrated. The self is being allowed to be seen, not just in terms of how others see that self, but in terms of how that self wishes to be seen.
       
      Yes, there is a clamoring of noise in this celebration, but that is the nature of celebration.
       
      You are in a time of liberation, which often comes before freedom. True Freedom. Liberation is the relief that comes with surges of noise while still anchored in some restrictions or extremes, often with great displays for the external world, while True Freedom is owned, experienced, and known, often in quiet, internal ways.
       
      It is beautiful to us because it is a step in the direction of acknowledging that you are important, that the mundane is important, that a moment is important, that context exists beyond preordained contexts.
       
      Our Species has long been subject to the notion that only the next world is important, or that *things* are important, or that only that which is deemed important is important, and those things are important, but not at the expense of the singular joy in sharing, of expressing, of being, of capturing a moment of mundanity.
       
      The species knows that privacy is a concept of the Young Paradigm, and that a Mature and Old Paradigm must embrace a lack of privacy in a healthy way for evolution to continue.
       
      Willingly offering up yourself in the most mundane of ways may seem to be a bumbling or chaotic, self-absorbed step, but it is a step in the direction of evolution. If the emphasis were to remain only on privacy and protection, then true invasion is much more likely. But in the same way that hackers teach systems better how to manage its delicate systems, so does constant exposure help the species to learn better how to manage its delicate identities.
       
      [Maureen] If Liberation is the "negative" pole and Freedom is the "positive" pole -- what are they the poles of?
       
      [MEntity]
      Among your options for describing the motivations of those contributing to the visual cacophony of "selfies" and other related sharing, we can say that "all of the above" would naturally be included because those motivations are reflective of the various fragments and Personalities among you.
       
      In response to the last question, it could be said to be the poles at either end of whatever was being oppressed: innocence, power, sexuality, etc.
       
      [Maureen] Thanks Michael. That was an interesting answer.
       
      [MEntity]
      When any of these oppressed states are liberated, there is "noise" that then moves into a more peaceful state.
       
      We will conclude here for today.
       
      Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

      [tkmppi] As the votes in municipal elections are just being counted, I'd like to hear a short comment from Michael on the populist party Perussuomalaiset (”The Finns”), with candidates of foreign background as well as those opposed to immigration, which appears to be the only winning party in these elections, although not as many votes as it got in the parliamentary elections last year
       
      [MEntity]
      We will offer a short comment: This Party appears to be comprised of early Mature souls who are working to clarify what they deem is an optimal balance between the social and economic contexts.
       
      If it were put into terms familiar to our teaching, it might be described as the "self-karmic" Party, with those feeling resonance with it working through internal conflicts that go hand in hand with evolving consciousness that also wants to retain familiarities.
       
      This is just a short comment with no emphasis or direction, so if you would like for us to clarify, or if you do not find this valid or relevant, you may say so, if you choose.
       
      [tkmppi] It's relevant, and clarifies my own feelings about the party.
       
      [Ingun] Could you share some of the overleaves or any comments on what Anders Behring Breivik did, the perpetrator of the 2011 attacks here in Norway.
       
      [MEntity]
      This appears to be an early Young Priest in the Negative Poles who could not fathom a direction of a world away from his own ideals, which appear to have been imprinted heavily and never questioned.
       
      It goes beyond this, in that it was not about the world moving in a direction away from his own ideals, but about removing those who represented that move away from the ideals.
       
      When one has deemed oneself a keeper of an ideal that does not allow for variations or inclusion of differences, it can lead to delusional violence that range between the acts of this Priest to political maneuvers to enact oppressive laws.
       
      With a Goal of Submission, Mode of Passion, Attitude of Idealism, and Chief Features of Impatience and Martyrdom, all of which were in the Negative Poles, were used to funnel a violent assault that was consciously chosen with conviction and with a sense of justification.
       
      [Maureen]
      Michael – you said: “Every Entity 5 is themed in Expansion vs Adventure, and in this case, this Entity is scattered across the planet, constantly moving, with not too many fragments from that entity getting too close together.” Considering we are usually spread out around the world, I know of 7 C1E5s (including me) living in Toronto.
       
      I feel like we are starting to gather together for some reason as many of us have had first contact or have gotten back in touch in the last 2 years. Is this a high number for one location or is this just a “coincidence”? One thing of note -- we do have different levels of contact with each other (i.e. I've never met one of the other Entity 5 members, in person).
       
      [MEntity]
      Maureen, many entity members who can, will manage to cross paths in some way, or be brought to the awareness of, the 7th Level Old who may or may not return. This is not unusual, and it is one of the "fun things" that is attempted for one who is 7th Level Old.
       
      Especially if that entity has been themed in keeping intimacy across time and space barriers throughout lifetimes.
       
      [Maureen] Thank you!
       
      [MEntity]
      That is not the only reason, of course, because these fragments have lives that are being shaped by their own choices, but it is part of the consideration.
       
      And though this entity can tend to be scattered, as the entity members age in Soul Age, the gravity of the reunion begins to become priority.
       
      [Diane_HB] When people are regressed into the Theta state, they remember their time between lives and the procedures that they go through to reincarnate. They talk about taking a certain amount of energy to earth -- between 35% to 75%. Why do people under hypnosis experience themselves as choosing new lives and not Essence making new fragments?
       
      [MEntity]
      When the regression is valid, there is little differentiation between the Personality and Essence, much in the same way that one might begin to live when Manifesting Essence. The "I" is Essence. The Essence includes the current Personality. The differentiation is moot.
       
      In those descriptions of quantifiable "energy," it may be a description of the Instinctive Center being carried forward after Review, or the uploading of the relevant data, so to speak.
       
      Beyond that, the perception would, naturally, TEND to be from the perspective of the current Personality, regardless of how deep the state.
       
      [Diane_HB] I thought uploading of data is from personality to essence, whereas the Michael Newton books talk about "bringing down energy" in terms of the "soul" using a percentage of its energy to incarnate.
       
      [MEntity]
      Both would be true. Data can be "uploaded" from Personality, especially while still incarnated, but is often still in charge of that work during Review, after a lifetime. This is, basically, a dumping of all data relative to the Chakras used by that Personality. The Instinctive Center, sans those extensions that were the Chakras for that lifetime, is then moved into another life and Personality, which will then extract and build its own relative Chakra system.
       
      Imagine the Instinctive Center as a kind of Annual Plant that always returns with new growth, but always from the same starting point.
       
      In terms of incarnation, that plant grows faster and stronger in each successive life, if you will.
       
      Every incarnation takes a certain amount of energy, and each lifetime comes with a certain amount built in from which to then build from, either with or without Essence.
       
      That allotted energy tends to be relative to the amount of data extracted from the Instinctive Center from the previous life and Personality, if we are going to describe this in a linear way.
       
      For example, if 75% of the Instinctive Center was usable data that was completion of Monads, Karma, etc, or as data that must be returned to in much later incarnations, then when the incarnation is set up, it might be said to have been sent with "75%" energy.
       
      That would be because 25% of the Instinctive Center is being carried forward, with 75% of new Essence energy for new experiences, plans, momentum, etc.
       
      [Diane_HB] Would somebody with "75%" energy *feel* more energetic than someone with "35%" energy?
       
      [MEntity]
      It is not that it is 75% of Essence, but rather a description of that which is refreshed in the Instinctive Center. For instance, those who are in the 6th Level of a Soul Age tend to have carried over a rather full Instinctive Center, whereas those in the 5th Levels tend to have a higher percentage of new space in their Instinctive Center.
       
      Again, this is a crude and limited description, but it is valid enough for beginning to understand.
       
      The amount of "new energy" versus carry-over of Instinctive data has no bearing on the feeling of "energy" of a lifetime, because everyone responds to either of these extremes in different ways.
       
      For example, there are those on the 6th Level with "jammed-packed" Instinctive Centers carried over so that as much Karma (both internally and externally) can be addressed as possible, and some will feel the weight of this and feel the pull below the water, while others keep their heads above water and gain a kind of optimistic strength, even as they tread the exhausting waters of that life.
       
      The feelings of "energetic" are shaped by choices, health, priorities, diet, geography, projects, etc. not by past lives or energy dynamics of Essence or Instinctive Center.
       
      [ClaireC] Hello, Michael. We touched on Dementia at last Wednesday's POF. Since this is such a difficult Choice to understand and knowing that a lot depends on the individuals' soul ages, can you elaborate more on this in view of our aging Baby-Boomer population and the dismal statistics facing us? Is there a large physical component too?
       
      [MEntity]
      Though we tend to emphasize the more metaphysical components of an ailment, disease, or injury, there are basic physical factors that are involved that matter. We can expound upon the metaphysical matters that are behind a person who is hit by a bus, but the fact that will remain that anyone hit by a bus is probably going to get injured, or die. A bus is a large object that, when hurdling through space toward a softer object, may tend toward devastating results.
       
      And so it is with the Human body: as it moves through time and space, it does not regenerate and renew in ways that enable it to live "forever," but as the time frame for life expands, so does the body begin to house a brain with diminishing capacities for functioning as it used to function.
       
      For many fragments, however, this is not as ugly an experience as it would seem to be, anymore than birth is an ugly experience. The developing brain in a "useless" body is no different than a diminishing brain in a "useless" body.
       
      The return to an infantile state can be greatly liberating to a Personality who may have repressed a great deal over the lifetime.
       
      The development of some form of Dementia tends to be relative to the level of repression that may have been involved in the life, relative to the denial of dependency, relative to the insistence on control, and so many other factors. It is as diverse in "reason for having" as any other condition.
       
      But we can say that diet contributes greatly to the eventual condition.
       
      [ClaireC] I thought so. Thank you.
       
      [Martha] Yesterday I met Damien Echols and his wife Lorri Davis, and read Damien's very priest-y book about his spiritual journey while on death row for nearly 20 years in brutal conditions. Their story seems full of major karma, monads, and the makings of an epic tale. His focus on staying an awake and growing spiritual person, while surrounded by what sounds like much younger souls and/or those who never progressed through even the earliest internal monads, is very inspiring. He's had some truly amazing support as well from lots of people. I know some of their story may still be private due to ongoing karma, but can you share something about what all is going on here? He and the rest of the West Memphis 3 were recently released but not exonerated. I think Arkansas does not want to admit how badly they fucked up.
       
      [MEntity] This is an example of a Server and how one lifetime can be the equivalent of 30 for other fragments. This is a cluster of "classic" Monads come to full completion (or near completion) in one lifetime for the fragments involved: Attacker/Victim; Healer/Healed; Rescuer/Rescued; Dependent/Independent; Pivotal Facilitator, Facilitated; Passive/Aggressive; Artist/Patron; Deserter/Abandoned; Defender/Defended; Player/Pawn; Hidden/Disclosed; Slander/Slandered; Jailer/Prisoner; Tandem Monads.
       
      [AnnH] jesus
       
      [Martha] holy shit
       
      [MEntity] The "priest-y" qualities may come from the Sage Casting and imprinting from his culture, and contribute to his efforts to turn this experience into a teaching.
       
      [Martha] is he a Michael student?
       
      [Martha] not this life, but in general?
       
      [MEntity]
      Yes, he is.
       
      He is from Cadre 11.
       
      [Martha] I had a recognition hit with him and his wife
       
      [MEntity]
      Your Cadre 11.
       
      This is not to say that this was planned or imposed upon the Personality, but that once there was a situation that presented itself as being optimal for "making the best of it," these Monads were pulled in over time.
       
      [Janet] My attitude is Stoic and I have found little documentation -- only generalities -- as to what this attitude entails. (For example: “sees life as if they have seen it all before”.) Most of the references to Stoic that I've found are in association with those who are Spiritualist and need to use the positive pole of Stoic to get out of negative pole of Spiritualist. For the benefit of all of us Stoics, can you perhaps provide little more info about this attitude? Are there identifiable degrees between the positive and negative poles?
       
      [MEntity]
      Janet, the Stoic is one who interprets life in terms of behavior and character vs claims and descriptions. Character and behavior must take priority over other facets of interpretation. For instance, it will not matter what one says, but what one does, who one IS.
       
      The Stoic explores the world of ethics as sustained and nurtured through self-management, self-awareness, self-control. This realm of ethic evolves from being standardized in the younger Soul Ages to being highly individualized by the Old Soul Age, with nuances granted.
       
      We have described the Stoic as "one who sees the world as if it has been seen before" because the Stoic uses one's "nature" as the defining force against which to measure ethics and authenticity. This nature is a constant, even if individualized. In short, the older Soul Stoic might simply see the world in terms of how true one is to oneself.
       
      And "oneself" is one's nature, and this is fairly constant, if not completely constant. It can be built upon, evolved, expanded, destroyed, crippled, wounded, but it is a constant that is fairly easy to discern by the Stoic.
       
      The Stoic interprets life with a spectrum of understanding that one's nature is naturally limiting, that one's environment is naturally constricting, that one's upbringing has its effects, and so on, and that all of these things contribute to the character and behavior of a person in a way that is somewhat deterministic. That a person is the way he is because that is what he has to work with.
       
      [Janet] I assume the Stoic applies this yardstick both to herself and to others.
       
      [MEntity]
      In the Positive Pole, Tranquility, the Stoic is not disappointed, not disoriented, and not reactionary to the ups and downs of life, or the behavior and choices of others. This Stoic does not see these as "good" or "bad" things, but as symptoms of the nature of someone or something. This Stoic works with that.
       
      As this is an Ordinal, Inspirational Attitude, it can see itself in anyone around, as Inspiration is merely reflection of potential used for benefit.
       
      The Negative Pole Stoic has moved into Resignation and no longer bothers with the nuances and potential, but determines that everyone is the same, or potentially the same, and that there is no use or hope in seeing anything differently.
       
      And, yes, this is both internal and external, Janet.
       
      None of this is to say that a Stoic is not expressive or that she does not wish for more, have opinions, experience expectations, because there are several elements at play in a Personality, but the older Stoic in the Positive Pole WILL tend to aim for that recognition of the nature of a person or situation over the expectations and demands of that person or situation, while the older Stoic in the Negative Pole will tend to dismiss any effort to consider beyond a conclusion drawn.
       
      Do you relate?
       
      [Janet] Yes. Very much so.
       
      [jesuislulu] Hello Michael, I felt the recent divergence quite viscerally. Feeling like I had begun walking away from this city and overall almost all aspects of political polarization. I would like you to elaborate on what the effects were regarding the current crossroads we are finding ourselves with such a polarized political situation. I have been living in a highly republican state feeling a fish out of water and am going tomorrow for a job interview in yet another state with a similar political climate. I was asked the other day what would be any different. Could you speak to the overall energetics of the Wilmington NC area?
       
      [MEntity]
      All Old Souls are going to experience the "fish out of water" experience to some degree in a world that currently hosts only a maximum of 10% of an Old Soul perspective (mostly found in science fiction and non-religious metaphysical circles), no matter where one lives.
       
      This will probably not change in your lifetimes.
       
      One of the challenges of an Old Soul is how to balance the higher perspective of life that works for the Old Soul, while teaching it, which is inherently a part of every Old Soul to do in some way.
       
      So the matter is not so much about what the rest of the world, or state, or county, or province, or city or town is doing or believing or practicing, but how you go about teaching what you want to teach.
       
      [jesuislulu] ok I get this
       
      [MEntity] Some of the truths learned by Old Souls is that their perspective (teaching) cannot be imposed, cannot be forced, and cannot be immediately understood or accepted.
       
      [jesuislulu] hence the fish outta water
       
      [MEntity]
      And that the teaching must come naturally, not from reaction, urgency, or manipulation.
       
      By "naturally," we mean that it is born of example, conversation, encouragement, education, etc.
       
      And most importantly: that not everyone wants to, or can, understand or learn your teaching.
       
      Yet.
       
      If an Old Soul is in a body, he or she is teaching. It is not something that is necessary to organize or focus. It is quite difficult for most Old Souls NOT to live their own teachings, and this is their most consistent means of teaching.
       
      However, some of the Old Souls' most difficult and challenging teachings is to move beyond the focus of how others are failing, and to continue learning, themselves.
       
      The Old Soul who is distracted with the failings of others has stopped learning.
       
      Not literally, but figuratively, in many ways.
       
      All of this is barring the conditions of someone, or a group, somehow interfering with, or removing, your capacity for choice, or your Rights within that shared paradigm. In that case, it is no longer a matter of teaching, then, but a matter of putting into effect everything relevant that you have learned, as best you can.
       
      You may not change the city, but you do not have to diminish your value as a person for the sake of someone else's imposed beliefs put into action. Beliefs are one thing, but when put into action that may interfere with your choice or Rights, then the choice to counter this, or not, becomes its own teaching.
       
      We are speaking in broader contexts than your city in question, of course, but this is relevant to all of our students in the world, wherever they are.
       
      The United States is quite clearly divided in its embodying of the shift from Young to Mature, with the Baby and Young on "one side" and the Mature and Old on the other. This is the most definitive we have seen it in a long time, but tends to be one of the symptoms of a paradigm shift forward, not backward.
       
      By "forward" we mean more inclusive.
       
      The more inclusive a paradigm, the more blatantly the exclusive are allowed to be.
       
      This is true of your own Personalities, as well. You can be in your Positive Poles, and still throw a tantrum, because you know you will, eventually, make the choice that is the best you can make. You can be in your Positive Poles and still worry about a job interview, because it is fair to be uncertain about the future when it is dependent upon the decision of someone else, all the while still knowing you will adapt and evolve with whatever you may encounter.
       
      The greater the inclusivity, the louder the exclusivity, both in the world, and in yourselves.
       
      Because it knows it is safe, so to speak.
       
      You are in the middle of an area that is quite unlike yourself, not for any other reason than that you have evolved to a point where this can be allowed in your world, even as you find great distaste for it.
       
      We must conclude here for tonight.

      CHAT TRANSCRIPT: Open Floor 050400
      Channeled through Otterly Blue; Edited by MARY BV; Moderated by Sandra Dent
      Note: Otterly = Troy Tolley
       
      MEntity: We are here. One moment. Hello to you all.
       
      <MaryBV> Could Michael please elaborate on the "three distinct circles" of people supporting each other in our Trueview community? Who is in each circle please, and in which example mentioned (circus in Italy, Medieval troupe) did they live?
       
      Note: MaryBV is referring to content delivered in this earlier session: Michael Speaks: March 2000
       
      MEntity:
      The "three distinct circles" were more an indication of the THEMES each carry to "the list" in terms of connections with others, but some of you were involved in all three circles. The three circles we indicated revolved around: A) being in a group that traveled; B) being in a group that stayed behind; C) being in a group that was welcoming travelers. We will elaborate to the extent we can in this forum. Terri, Barry, Otterly, MaryBV, Anne, Arinna, Carole, Glenn, David MP, and several others bring the theme of the"travelers" circle. Carole, Hector, Barry, Kath, Sharon(az), Glenn and several others carry the themes of those who remained rooted as home for the travelers (we realize a few are mentioned twice). Ludmila, Anne, Kath, Sandra, Otterly, Hector, Cyprus, Arinna, and several others are linked to the welcome of travelers.
       
      The second circle mentioned are the ones who remained behind while others traveled from them. There are several more, as indicated, from your list that have links to these three circles, but this forum is not conducive to an exhaustive scan of the entire history of each.
       
      The traveling circus in Italy is more of what would be linked to the first circle described, and those involved. The Medieval Troupe was more of a welcoming circle, and thus links to those in the third circle described (which had its traveling, but not nearly as widely as the "circus"). We will look into this further as we go, but this is as deep as we may go here. We have offered to Otterly to have an entire session geared toward this exploration for those interested. This will be arranged.
       
      AFTER CHAT CLARIFICATION: The Medieval "Troupe" addressed here, and the traveling during Medieval times as pagans we mentioned in our first exchange about this are different lives and time frames altogether.
       
      <Arinna> I know it's a big subject, but I was wondering if you could speak a little about astral projection. More specifically, why would someone feel pain in their astral body, as I have twice now?
       
      MEntity:
      The Astral Body is merely the manifest energy of your emotional plane, in the same way that your Physical Body is the manifest energy of your Physical Plane. While incarnated, there is no real way to separate the Astral Body from the Physical unless through death. There is always a connection. Therefore, any "pain" in your emotional plane (your Astral Body) is easily translated into "real pain" through the senses of the current body. Though the pain is being more delicately and specifically able to be located by your heightened intuition as being in your Astral Body (which is valid, we see), it still affects the physical, even if only felt as an 'echo.' Any emotional pain not dealt with when you are IN the body will be more magnificently magnified when OUT of the body. This is why the Astral Plane and merging of the Entity is such a terrifying and shocking experience for many.
       
      There are many, especially those of Scholar influence, who "save" their emotional realm of processing for the Astral, assuming it will "hurt less." That idea is not valid. We believe an easy way for you to comprehend the reality of this pain as being real is to compare it to any dream that has awakened you, distracted you for a day, etc. It has real impact. It is not uncommon.
       
      <Sandra51> Would it be accurate to say that many of us in this room are experiencing 4th Dimension more than usual then?
       
      MEntity:
      There is much speculation as to what Dimensions are, in terms of numbers. If you speak of the fourth Dimension in terms of transcending barriers involving Time, then yes.
       
      As many of you progress through your Soul Ages, and as the general Soul Age matures on your planet, there are more fields of energy, or dimensions, that become accessible. In many of your cases, you are presently struggling with the concepts of Time and your place in it as Sentience. During the Young Soul stages of your planet, it was valid and comfortable to live within a linear time frame. During the maturing of Essences comes the maturing of "Time" (which is an initial byproduct of Sentience). In that maturing of your concepts of Time, there comes a 'time' when it means less in terms of past and future, but more importantly in terms of NOW. You no longer see your lives unfolding like a line from start to finish, but as a spherical place wherein your presence is more "Alive" when PRESENT. It is not a new truth, but one that is catching on.
       
      Pockets of you, individually and in groups, are finally experimenting with this concept. We do not say this lightly. Many of you are literally losing your intuitive compasses in terms of your futures due to your seeking a presence in the moment. This is highly disconcerting to you, and yes, will create in effect, a 'stutter.' High preoccupation with security and planning is an indication of your possibly being a pioneer in living seriously within what is called 4th Dimensional thinking/living.
       
      We have never seen any fragments adjust to this dimensional flux with ease. It will uproot all that has been "counted on" before, or create rifts internally between what you thought was appropriate living and what you know as trust in life. For those fragments taking that route, we have only seen surrender to be the key in that process of adjustment. You will always be safe.
       
      <Hector22> The astral seems to have different qualities. For example, there seemed to be a honeycomb soul arrangement at a lower area (inside the earth)? Would these be incubating hive souls for another cycle or a distortion in perception?
       
      MEntity:
      There are no distortions in perceptions Astrally. It is what you want to see, or at least what you have allowed yourself to see. The fact that Hell exists and is quite valid has no bearing on those who will never "see" it. We see this description you shared to be quite creative and holds more clues about the perceiver than the perceived.
       
      The Astral is not literal. This is not to say the Astral does not have different qualities. That much is true. We will say, at least in terms of Souls, there is no "incubation" that we know of. There is a "holding area" where all who are choosing to incarnate make their arrangements, choose Entities, Essence Twins, etc., before a Cycle begins, but this is not "inside the earth."
       
      <Anne> Do you, Michael Entity, have what is referred to as an Essence Twin, as in another causal entity?
       
      MEntity: Yes, all entities have one; that is the merging factor within the Causal, the seeking of our Entity Twin.
       
      <nemo999> What is Michael's idea of a good education for children
       
      MEntity:
      Though this would require a much longer opportunity with you to answer this, we can summarize in that we seek to reform education on the planet through our Teaching. In at least one parallel we will experience this impact. It is what you might call our only "task." We believe early recognition and personal validation of Roles and subsequent schooling based on internal longings from an early age is a more empowering and healthy route to education.
       
      Much of what is taught between the "grades" of 5 through 12 is pointless to the life. It would be at this point, or earlier if the child indicated, that a specific vocation, skill, or otherwise, be available for the child to learn. For a high frequency Artisan with a goal of Growth, Passion Mode, to be taught in the same setting as a low frequency Warrior with a goal of Flow, Observation Mode, simply means only one of the two will "learn."
       
      <nemo999> This program will not sell to the public.
       
      MEntity:
      We do not intend to "sell" it. We already have our Agreements with those in position to make a difference. They are providing alternatives at an ever-increasing rate. It is seen as"alternative" presently, but the views of children are changing, along with your schooling concepts. The schooling system as you have known it for some time has only been a means for housing children for certain hours of the day for Young Soul agendas to be tended. This was appropriate for that Cycle.
       
      School shootings, violence, pregnancy, drugs, and media hype is all contributing to the Mature Soul reevaluation of what it means to be in public school. A reform is inevitable, but we do not know in which direction it will go in all probabilities.
       
      <Hector22> Is Lyra a system that has contact with us?
       
      MEntity: Yes, for a small portion of the population. Most of that contact is musically or Astrally.
       
      <cyclist> Is sexual congress present in the astral, or is this strictly a physical plane experience?
       
      MEntity: What you experience as "sexual congress" while physical is but a portion of what "sex" actually is. The Astral is highly sexual as is each plane progressively. We define sex as"moving in unison with something other than self." Some of you know this experience, with or without genitalia involved. The majestic experiences of seeing the sky on certain dusks or dawns are a highly sexual experience in larger terms. Many of your sexual dreams are more "accurate" than waking sex. The "closer" to Tao we all move, the more sexually, uninhibitedly, we share.
       
      <MaryBV> Could Michael expand a bit on the topic of seeking their Entity Twins? Are they waiting for the Twin to cycle off? What sort of work is involved in merging with the Twin?
       
      MEntity:
      It is the task of each Entity while residing on the Causal to Teach the physical and astral planes. Every Entity will teach "from here." In the process of that teaching, causal reality is comprehended, meaning that we discover and assimilate the truth of "cause and effect," even if our terms here are limited.
       
      In each Entity's particular "style" it will teach fragments about choice, creativity, thought, motion, feeling, etc., all as related to Causality. The Lower Level of the Causal is our "internal" comprehension of this. The Mid-Causal is our "externalization" of that. The Higher Causal is when we merge with our Twin. The merging will not occur until all fragments within each Entity have comprehended their own causality, along with the causality of all other fragments within their own Entity. This then allows a perception that can identify our Entity Twin.
       
      Though each Entity already "knows" its Entity Twin, while on the Causal that knowing seeks a level that is grander than any of us "expected." In the same way you each "forget" everything when you are born physical, so does the Entity "forget" much when merged Astrally and beginning the process, and again, when Causal. We believe the Causal Plane is the last of that forgetting.
       
      To make this more tangible for some of you, since it may be confusing that we "know" our Entity Twin, yet seek it. Consider when you have "just met" someone and "know" the reality of your deeper and more profound history beyond this life, yet never act upon that. It is similar.
       
      Our Entity Twin is Mid-Causal as well.
       
      We will close now.
       
      Good night.

      Troy Tolley, Channel (referred to as Otterly in the transcript)
      Open Floor
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, we are here. One moment.
       
      Tonight, we have an “open floor” and you will take part in shaping the topic terrain. You may begin asking questions in the format set for this forum. We are ready.
       
      [Nemo999] If I was to materialize on your plane what would it look like to me?
       
      [Michael_Entity] This is a difficult scenario to translate. There are no needs for physical eyes in the Causal Plane, therefore, as a human this “place” may still remain “invisible”. The closest scenario we can come to transferring the experience of the Causal to you is more in terms of your Intellectual “a-ha’s!”… the space where everything suddenly makes sense and is connected clearly.
       
      [nemo999] To me dreams are unclear and very hazy–what I picture as your plane of existence.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The Plane itself encompasses the Astral and the Physical, with the Astral and Physical simply being more condensed versions of the same energy. It would not be impossible then for you to experience Causality while Physical, but with a tremendous drop in frequency and in circles of realization.
       
      To describe it in Physical terms is not possible. It is intellectually based and therefore, as we said, those moments of clarity and insight become foundations and structures “here”.
       
      Take a moment one day and make a note of every person you pass; note that their life is filled, has its path and it crossed yours, briefly or deeply. Follow the thoughts that lead from each person and how they must move into spaces that you will never see, filling other lives as well, crossing other paths in brevity or depth. Continue this throughout your day in as solid a way as possible, retaining a count of each person and a brief inner comment on their reality. If you are able to do this for a full 24 hours and grasp the magnitude of your contact, crossings, connections, etc. You will have a moment where you have grasped a reflection of Causality.
       
      [nemo999] My picture is of dots of light, sort of a probability cloud of them.
       
      [Michael_Entity] A cloudy image will not suffice as a reflection; there would need to be comprehension. This is why it is a goal while Physical to BE Physical, not Causal. We note to you that you will have “plenty of time” to enjoy the Causal when you “get here”. We will still be “here” when you get here, in fact.
       
      [MaryBV] For the past couple of weeks, a small group of people have been working with Terri with Motherwave breathing exercises. It appears I have an energy block in my knees. Could Michael tell me what sorts of reasons energy can become bottled up in the body? What sorts of things might we do to keep our energy flowing unimpeded through the body?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We would not be able to comment on reasons for energy “blockages” with any meaning unless specifically about a person; the reasons are highly subjective. We can, however, say that on a larger scale this symbolizes where your FOCUS or LACK of focus is.
       
      The body is symbolic on a larger scale too, and the location has meaning. You would first determine whether this “blockage” is sensed as having “edges” or if it seems “muffled” and heavy. If it seems sharp or edged, this is an indication of having a seriously distracting FOCUS in that particular area of the life. If the energy seems muffled or cloudy and heavy, this is a serious LACK of attention in that area of the life.
       
      The KNEES are an area of the body where an individual deals with the false personality and Chief Feature. In examining this combined symbology, you may find you are either RESISTING looking at an area of the life being run by CF or currently in battle with the area of life run by CF. There are, of course, many other ways of perceiving the meaning of energy when sensed from an inner place, but this is our basic response.
       
      Do you have a further question about this? We will respond.
       
      [MaryBV] Is it usually this life that causes the energy to become bottled up, or does past life play a part? How does one know?
       
      [Michael_Entity] That is a subtle difference. We suggest that if it is coming up, it is certainly relevant within the present life somehow, regardless of past life associations. Each life has its own set of tools and parameters, even if some of its impetus and motivation stem from the “past”. It is always most meaningful to search your present first. The “past” may make more sense of its intensity or history, broadening the contexts, but only THIS life will find its solution.
       
      [mamajo] A while back in public chat, you said that to connect with the energy of our entity, we should try to visualize a “Michael central” in a type of meeting house. When I did this, I connected directly with your channel Otterly (who is an entity mate of mine), could you re-define the process for me, perhaps I was doing it wrong.
       
      [Michael_Entity] Are you speaking of connecting with your own entity, or us?
       
      [mamajo] Well, the context I understood it to be was my own entity, which would allow sharing and learning to take place. I’m not referring to channeling per-se, just connecting to the energy stream to aid in learning. I think I understood it to be analogous to astral school to be.
       
      [Michael_Entity] In either case, you were not “doing it wrong”. In fact, what you have energetically and symbolically deemed Otterly IS a “type of meeting house”. You can be more specific in your design, changing this to a literal visual house, or allow your inner picture to be what is more easily recognizable as a resource. By connecting to “Otterly”, this symbol can act as a very meaningful conduit, in this case for your own Entity OR in connection with us (since Otterly is connected to both). If you are distracted by your symbol of the “meeting house”, it is up to you to simply change that symbol. Otherwise, it is valid.
       
      [mamajo] Ok, so I didn’t do it wrong then, I thought I had done a “bad thing” there impinging on a “person's energy place”.
       
      [Michael_Entity] That is not a possibility. When you “call” on someone, even if specifically, the aspect you call to you, the energy that makes that up, is but an extension of the energy, specifically for you. It has no bearing on the core source and its experience of itself. This is why it is possible to dream of someone intimately without that dream being “shared” or remembered together and how you can “meet” Astrally without both having to be asleep.
       
      [Peepo] Why is the period of history we are living in like that of Caesar Augustus?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      There are many parallels to that time frame, from the dynamics of Government to the culture, from the distribution of wealth, to the methods of taxes and welfare.
       
      That is a large topic and one with which we can delve into as a specific when the forum is focused entirely on the topic. We will say that the disruption of your leaders in the U.S. is the most important parallel having to be dealt with. The crux of this disruption has not come full circle yet.
       
      We will also note that this channel is not one of our best historians, therefore we are limited here.
       
      The parallels in culture are in the celebrations of art and creativity, freedom of expression, and an emphasis on peace. It is also in the development of care for all, not just the wealthy, including free basics in terms of shelter and food and clothing. These things are progressively becoming accessible in the U.S.
       
      We do have much more to say on the topic. We will continue at another time.
       
      [Deb] Will Michael explain the difference between want and need?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We find the differences between WANT and NEED to be profound: WANT is anything you are choosing consciously to ADD to your life, while NEED is anything you seek to FILL or SUSTAIN your life. There are certain areas of your life that are defaulted “pockets” seeking to be filled; these are NEEDS (food, shelter,…) There are certain areas of your life where a foundation is built and additions are sought (such as more relationships, more money, more or anything…), and that seeking is a WANT.
       
      There are always NEEDS and WANTS in a life and both add to the sense of searching in a life. NEEDS will always seek to be fulfilled first, at any cost. If they are not met, WANTS then become “dreams” unfulfilled or desperation, longings.
       
      [HectorO-C] I wanted to know if an update on the manifestation of the Infinite Soul was possible.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Since the beginning of this year, we have seen a tremendous drop in activity around preparations for a manifestation. The Infinite Soul will only manifest in a parallel or time frame when the Sentience is lacking direction and seeks assistance. A “surprising” factor in the last Nexus is in the detailed filtering of reality options that were leading toward more disintegration. This has created a lull in assessment, a pause, to see what humans will create over this year. It appears your species seeks more integration “on your own” than you might have anticipated.
       
      The novelty of having a manifestation may be exciting, but the indication that your species and the planet are transiting in Soul Age with little incidence is equally exhilarating to the soul.
       
      This can be likened to a teenager whose “father” threatens to pull over to make a point, but then the teenager making its own efforts to grow and communicate.
       
      So our update as far as we can see is a holding pattern. We will comment as this unfolds.
       
      [Barry] I am asking as proxy for another…. I am concerned with the future generations to come of our young. I believe that many are on the way to faster enlightenment, but still many are having a hard time. How could we as parents and adults help? I have a few ideas but perhaps you might validate or advise something?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Each generation of youth, as they mature and reach adulthood, has the same reaction to seeing the following generations of youth. What we would suggest is trusting in their processes. Those before you feared for you and you “survived”. This will not change for the next generation after you. This is more about your maturing than anything else; it is natural and part of your own growth.
       
      There is no “faster enlightenment” available now than there was before. We are unclear as to what you refer. The most any parent or adult can do is BE adults and parents, not seek to be saviors or heroes. Realizing your knowing more about the world and your place in it has made you no more or less “safe” will free you to shine as examples of trust, rather than teaching fear and false needs for protection and guidance. By assuming the children are in some form of vague danger in the world, this will be what is taught in your actions, if reaching out with that in your hands.
       
      Instead, seek the details of each child’s hopes, dreams, and levels of creativity and trust them, allow them to run with it. Provide as much childhood as possible, full of fun and activity and expression. Many of you interfere with a child’s natural development of confidence and competence by seeking to undermine them with good intentions. A child is as intelligent in its desires as you are.
       
      The greatest thing you can do collectively as adults is rally for changes in the educational systems. This is one of our own agendas and we are working with many in the system to change this. It is one of our intentions to redesign the contexts for education.
       
      This then is the only real tangible action that can be taken in terms of “generations”. If it is not your “calling”, then your only tangible action can be in creating a sanctuary for your children, creating lines of freedom for their expression, acting as examples of trust in life.
       
      In truth, each generation continues to “have it better” than the last. This has been the case for some time. We would not be here otherwise, ourselves. There must be an element of prosperity and peace in the environment for us to work with a channel and speak to masses. Otherwise, all are tending to Needs.
       
      [MaryBV] I am under the impression that a person’s aura fluctuates and changes quite a bit. Do the roles in essence have certain signature colors? Does your frequency have any determination in the color of the aura?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, you are correct. Each Role can be said to resonate with the colors commonly attributed to the Chakras. It takes some practice to specifically “see” that level, but it can be done. Frequency creates the “hue” of that color. We remind you that as you are Physical, it is impossible to “see” another’s Aura without the colors of your own being used as a filter. If you hold a red film up to yellow, you will get a completely different color than if you held up a blue filter to yellow. Keeping that in mind, you may have to calibrate or adjust your perceptions so they can be interpreted properly.
       
      We will conclude here.

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