  • Moving Center: Linked to Goal

    KurtisM

    [Excerpt from OMW: You and Your Centers]

     

    MEntity:
    MOVING CENTER has as its Basic Functions the regulation of your movements, directions, and paths. In its simplest description for this exchange, we can say that it is how one navigates WHAT WORKS and WHAT DOES NOT WORK.

     

    This is everyone's means of creating or clearing his or her path through life.

     

    It is directly linked to the Goal.

     

    No matter what your Goal, in terms of Axis, it is your ACTIONS that create or clear your path to fulfilling it.

     

    One cannot fulfill their Goal in any lifetime without ACTION.

     

    In Positive Health, this shows up as an evolving capacity for LEARNING.

     

    Though learning happens among all Centers, there must be application and implementation for true learning while in a body.

     

    Regardless of one's Primary Centering, this Center is where one actually learns, at least in terms of the lifetime. Not necessarily how one learns math or how to raise a plant.

     

    Those who are Moving Centered will tend to have greater emphasis on the Goal as their priority for the life.

     

    When the Moving Center is in Negative Health, it often shows up for the older soul as AGITATION.

     

    One of the most direct means of healing this Center is to apply what one has learned. It is that simple.

     

    Keep in mind that this prompt for application of learning can come in the form of impulses, a quiet sense of knowing what one "should" do, and often as your means of handling pain. ...

     

    The reason there is a Goal is because it will require the use of the Moving Center in some way, even if one is not Moving Centered.

     

    When looking at how you are Agitated, look to your Goal.

     

    In most cases, it is directly relevant.

     

    It would indicate that you may not be applying all that you have learned.

     

    [GeraldineB] I could be self-deluded, but I don't feel all that much agitation with my Goal -- I've gotten quite patient with myself

     

    MEntity:
    Agitation tends not to come unless there is Learning that is not being applied. Agitation is a kind of short-circuiting that indicates the gap between action and experience/knowledge. ...

     

    For example, if you you find yourself in a pattern of Agitation with certain "kinds of people," or a circumstance, or relationship, you may not be applying the experiences and knowledge that has come from previous fulfillment of the Goal.

Articulatory suppression decreased the likelihood to spontaneously notice mind- wandering, whereas verbal material increased retrospective awareness of mind- wandering. In addition, an ecological study using smartphones confirmed that inner speech vividness positively predicted mind-wandering awareness (Exp. 3). Together, these findings support the view that inner speech facilitates introspection of one’s thoughts, and therefore provides empirical evidence for a positive relation between language and consciousness.

      MEntity:  Hello to you, I. We are here, now. We may begin our exchange with you.
       
      Q: Hello. Please elaborate on the functions of the Moving and Higher Moving Centers, and their 7 Parts
       
      MEntity:

      The Moving and Higher Moving Centers, both, govern the conduction, direction, and form of energies. The Lower Center tends toward the management of Matter, while the Higher Center tends toward the management of the matrix for that matter.
       

      The Moving Center's spectrum is described as functioning between
      the Positive Pole of PRODUCTIVE, and the Negative Pole of FRUSTRATIVE.

      PRODUCTIVE is meant to describe the result of an action that is intentionally, or unexpectedly, beneficial.
      FRUSTRATIVE is meant to describe the results of an action that are not beneficial, despite intention or expectation.
       

      The Higher Moving Center's spectrum is described as functioning between
      the Positive Pole of BEAUTY, and the Negative Pole of DESIRE.

      BEAUTY is meant to describe the recognition of patterns, and their subsequent benefits and fulfillments.
      DESIRE is meant to describe the trust of impulse that generates those patterns.
       

      Lower Centers' Negative Poles can tend to be emphasized as a result of fear, but the Higher Centers' Negative Poles are merely a more focused version of the Positive Pole. They are not affected by fear, but fear can keep one from accessing the Positive Pole of that Higher Center.

      Negative Poles are merely a more exclusive part of something being described.

      For instance, DESIRE is not "negative" in the sense that it is wrong, but more that while DESIRE is a trust in impulses, it has yet to recognize the patterns that are being generated from those impulses.

      BEAUTY, then, is inclusive of Impulses, but knows the BEAUTY of the bigger picture, patterns, and the fulfillment and benefit of those.

      Fear cannot squash someone's DESIRES, but can cause them to distrust those DESIRES, turning them into longing and aching, or distorting them, or replacing them with compulsions, rather than impulses.
      Keep in mind that we are describing these Centers as experienced from Personality.
       
      The Moving Center manages all energy that moves through the body, which includes the energy generated by the Intellect and the Emotions.
      Most tend to presume that Emotions are "feelings," but in technical terms, any "feeling" one has is because of the Moving Center's translation of the energy generated by the Intellect or Emotion.

      It is giving form to that energy.
      It is conducting that energy.
      The Personality manages the Lower Centers, and Essence manages the Higher Centers.

      This means that one always has the choice as to how one "feels" about anything. It is often presumed that one cannot control or choose one's feelings, but that is wholly untrue.

      Feelings are no different from any other action conducted by the body.

      When one kicks a dog, it is not because his leg betrayed him.
      When one feels bad, sad, or angry, it is not because of something that has more control over you than you do.

      One can always choose how to direct energy that is flowing through the body.

      When one does not choose how to direct energy that is flowing through the body (and the life, by extension), it can lead to Frustration.

      When one chooses to manage the energy that flows through the body, and the life, it can lead to Productivity.

      Choosing how to manage feelings is not the same thing as denying them, or repressing them.

      Managing feelings is no different from the choices that manage any other movement. For instance, if one is in a hurry to get from one destination to the next, one does not have to do so while putting oneself and others in danger. It is not necessary to crash the car. Careful driving, regardless of the necessity for speed, is of utmost importance for reaching the destination, if you will.

      And so it is with feelings. One can feel angry, sad, even happy and excited, while not losing the fulfillment of intended and beneficial patterns.

      The key is in differentiating between ACTION and REACTION.

      Sadness and anger, for instance, can be directed with action, but when sadness or anger are directing you, then you are in reaction.

      Allowing one to have any feeling that is generated is important, but keeping those from generated reactions is important if one wishes to maintain the capacity to choose.

      Every feeling is information, but they are not the truth.
      Feelings are a form of navigation, which is managed, primarily, by the Moving and Higher Moving Centers.

      The Moving Center helps one to navigate through the senses, and through feelings generated by those senses.

      The Higher Moving Center is used by Essence for navigating larger patterns of incarnations and their matrix.
       
      The more one Manifests Essence, the more one's DESIRE is acted upon, and the more one tends to see the BEAUTY of his or her life, self, and body.

      In the same way that Feelings can be managed in healthier ways by discerning between Action and Reaction, one's DESIRES can be managed and directed in healthy, beneficial ways by discerning between Impulses and Compulsions.

      Impulses are attractions, magnetic, and inviting, whereas Compulsions are demanding, distracting, and consuming.

      Impulses are quieter and more easily ignored because they are inclusive of your capacity to choose. Compulsions are louder and difficult to ignore, often dismissing your capacity to choose.

      If one were to manage Feelings and DESIREs by discerning between Reactions/Compulsions vs Actions/Impulses, one would navigate the life with the utmost capacity for benefit and fulfilled intentions.

      CENTERS are our way of describing a Personality's "center of gravity." By this we mean that the Personality tends to use that Center as a means for input from the world around him or her, and tends to return to that Center, regardless of the call for the use of any other Center.

      PARTS are our way of describing how the input from the Center is then output back into the world.

      So if one is Moving Centered, Intellectual Part, he might take in the world through stimulation, senses, feeling, and actions, then organize that input through thoughts, ideas, and expression.

      No Center is literally divided into parts. That is merely a description of convenience. Instead, the Center and Part describe the circuit of input/output that is habitual for the Personality. The "part" is merely the output, and is processed through the actual Center that the part describes.

      So the Moving Center/Intellectual PART simply means that life is taken in through the Moving Center and then goes back out into the world through the Intellectual Center, itself.

      The Personality and Physical Body is only capable of being Centered in a Lower Center and Lower Part, but has full access to the Higher Centers and their Parts throughout the life, both intentionally and through trauma.

      The Personality and Body cannot sustain Centering in the Higher Centers as they cannot process that energy for any sustained length of time. This sustained centering in a Higher Center is unnecessary anyway, as they are for the functioning processes of Essence.
       
      Or rather, the ROLE in Essence.

      If one thinks of the Essence as having polarities described by the Personality and Role, with the Personality being the more focused and exclusive end of the spectrum of Essence, and the Role being the broader and more inclusive end of the spectrum of Essence, then you may see why the Lower Centers are for Personality to process those denser energies, and the Higher Centers are for the Role to do so.

      So the Lower PARTS of the Higher Center are those that of Personality, and the Higher PARTS of a Lower Center are those of Essence/Role.
       
       
       
      The Moving Center and its Parts might be described as manifesting in this way, then:

      Moving Center/Moving Part – pure stimulation, physical ecstasy, and extreme, consuming, and absolute pain

      Moving Center/Intellectual Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then organized into thoughts, ideas, plans, strategy, and expression.
      Act/react First, then Conclude Ideas, Insights, and Reasons from those actions/reactions.

      Moving Center/Emotional Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then used to inspire (provoke) particular interpretations, feelings, and perceptions around him or her.
      Act/React First, then conclude what perceptions and sentimentality one wishes to inspire in others/self

      Moving Center/Higher Moving Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then fed directly to Essence and turned over to the greater patterns of the life. Total Trust.

      Moving Center/Higher Intellectual Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then fed directly to Essence for sorting into the levels of Truth. Total Authenticity/Honesty.

      Moving Center/Higher Emotional Part – Life is taken in through sensation and feelings and the body, then delivered directly to Essence for greater context. Total Inclusion.
       
      Moving Center/Instinctive Part – navigation based in local experience, imprinting, anticipated and remembered pains and pleasures.
       
       
       
      Higher Moving Center/Higher Moving Part – Tao, the spark or pure Essence. Total Resonance.
      We must correct a previous statement: Higher Moving/Higher Moving are Physical/Buddhic Bodies.
       
      Higher Moving Center/Higher Intellectual Part – Causal and Mental bodies, communication with Entity and Cadre. Total Truth.

      Higher Moving Center/Higher Emotional Part – Astral and Buddhic bodies, processing of inspirational threads and reflections that span from fragmentation to union. Total Clarity.
      We must correct a previous statement:  Higher Moving/Higher Emotional are Astral and Messianic Bodies.

      Higher Moving Center/Moving Part – manages the health of the Physical Body and its use of energy, fuel, and fulfillment of desires. Impulses are most obvious here, as well as Compulsions.
      This is the Part that helps to fulfill Agreements, Karma, and Monads.
       
      Higher Moving Center/Intellectual Part – manages the health of one's clarity in communication, behaviors, and expressions regarding intimacy, honesty, ethics, "morality," and discipline.
      This is the Part that helps to activate Agreements, Karma, and Monads.
       
      Higher Moving Center/Emotional Part – manages the health of one's clarity of perception, dreams, aspirations, visions.
      This is the Part that helps to magnetize and attract Agreements, Karma, and Monads.
       
      Higher Moving Center/Instinctive Part – navigation based in non-local experience, such as past lives, Essence reviews, unresolved or anticipated Karma, Monads, and Agreements.
       
       
       
      These are highly simplistic synopses of the Centers/Parts, but they help to describe the functions and basic emphasis of each combination.
      MEntity: Did this cover the whole of the original question, Ingun?
      Q:  yes, I suppose so
      MEntity: There will always be more for us to elaborate upon, but this helps to have a starting point for more extrapolation.
      MEntity: Good day to you, then, I. We will conclude here.
      Q:  good bye and thank you
      MEntity: Goodbye.

      OMW: Year Review
       
      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We are here now.
       
      The workshop requested today is that of consciously reviewing your year of experiences so that you may carry with you into the next year that which is of benefit to you, and release that which is not. This process of Review happens on a Personality Level almost-yearly, but almost always subconsciously, and not with a great deal of comprehension.
       
      There are various levels of Reviews that happen, as signified by some of the planetary Returns in your Astrology, such as the Jupiter and Saturn Returns, and also by any collective Instinctive Centered Year, or major events and choices in your life. In short, Reviews are happening "all the time" in some form, but it usually takes a major event to truly bring comprehension of that Review.
       
      Unless you use your power of Choice to bring a Review into comprehension at will.
       
      The Review process that we will discuss today is one based upon your Choice, your willingness. It is a conscious Review.
       
      Time periods or recurring events (such as holidays) are excellent markers for taking a moment to Review, and the end/beginning of a year is usually quite significant to most.
       
      We will define "Review" here as: the process of awareness, integration and comprehension of experiences. Awareness is the Intellectual recall of experience. Integration is the extraction of meaning from experience, or the Emotional/Inspirational element. And Comprehension is the building from those experiences, or the Action element.
       
      What most lifetimes/Personalities tend to do is to leave a trail of experiences that are then gathered up only after the death of the body. The cliche that "people never really change" is based upon this, because most fragments while incarnated in a Personality really do not change in any discernible way, because there is a great lack of Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension of Experiences.
       
      Most lifetimes tend to be a series of consumed experiences that do not get fully processed. To put this into perspective: imagine that a lifetime equals 100% Experience. Most fragments, while in a body, are Aware of only 10% at most, Integrate only half of that 10% at most, and Comprehend even less. In other words: 90% of what is gained from a lifetime of Experiences comes AFTER the lifetime ends. A lifetime of experiences over a 70 to 100 year span bringing only 3% Comprehension leaves the Personality at the end of the lifetime feeling quite bewildered with "where the time went," what he or she did with his or her life, etc.
       
      If Review were a regular part of the lifetime in Comprehensive ways, or if this were considered a valid and vital part of educational systems, lifetimes would look very different. That being said, it is also a glorious luxury that a Personality is NOT required to Review. YOU get to LIVE. That is all you have to do, if that.
       
      It is not your responsibility, nor is it particularly appealing to go into Review on any regular basis during a lifetime. The opportunities are there, and sometimes they are vital (signified most of the time by near-death experiences prompting Review), but they are not required. However, as the Soul Ages, and the Personalities grow more and more conscious during the living of a lifetime, manifesting Essence more and more, the process of Review becomes quite an interesting prospect. YOU want to Review because YOU equals Essence. "You" always equates Essence, but not always consciously, which is the differentiation between "manifesting Essence" and not.
       
      Today, then, we will share with you ways that you can Review using tools that are useful as Personality, as well as methods that are used by Essence, usually reserved for after death.
       
      Before we go into those, we will first suggest the methods for settling into your Review. You do not have to do these during this workshop.
       
      Draw from memory at least 3 significant events of your past year. There are always 3 or more, whether you realize that or not. There a multitude, in fact, but in terms of memory, there should always be available at least 3 with which will come to AWARENESS. Divide your previous year into four sections of three months each (i.e., Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sep, Oct-Dec). To the best of your memory, determine in which section the events occurred.  
      [Martha] event meaning some particular occurrence, or could it be some longer term theme/project etc?
       
      MEntity:
      Martha, "significant" is the key here. It could have been a moment, it could have been a project, it could have been a word, it could have been a day, etc. The degree of significance to you is what is important. By "significant," we mean that it meant something to you that stayed with you in some way. If it was a long-term event of significance, it can be noted as to where it began, but it can also be noted as to which sections it spanned. By just doing these steps, you have worked through the Awareness and Integration elements of Review. The next steps, then, will have more immediate significance and resonance, if this process works for you, as your examples can be worked with.
       
      A continuation on the Integration element:
       
      The four sections of the year are now labeled by the Overleaf emphasis that the season tends to bring with it. This may be different for those in the different Hemispheres, and whether the climate is rather steady, or not, there will still be these "seasons." For simplistic purposes, we will describe the climates where most of our students are, and this can then be translated appropriately.
       
      Jan-Mar=Winter=GOAL Apr-Jun=Spring=MODE Jul-Sep=Summer=ATTITUDE Oct-Dec=Fall=CHIEF FEATURES  
      Obviously, these are not exact to the shifts in Seasons, and in fact there are more "seasons" when technically speaking, but this is a symbolic mapping that need not be confused with more technical differences.
       
      [Maureen] Is it your personal Overleaves in effect or is this only the "effect" of the yearly, transiting Overleaves?
       
      MEntity:
      In extreme climates that transcend the more "traditional" shifts in insolation for the year, such as closer to the poles and equator, we would still suggest dividing up your year for Review as suggested, as it is symbolic, as we said, but there are some differences in your process that we will address. There a multitude of ways to define "seasons" on the planet, so we will use this mapping that helps to cover the point of Review, rather than as a way to describing shifting temperatures and cycles of the planet, itself.  In your identifying where in your "seasons" your significant events occurred, you have gained insight into which of your Overleaves was being activated as a primary process for that event.
       
      If your significant event occurred in Jan-Mar, it is directly and most-significantly linked to your GOAL. If your significant event occurred in Apr-Jun, it is directly, and most-significantly, linked to your MODE. And so on.
       
      To expand upon these:
       
      GOAL = the state or quality that every action in your life is aimed at comprehending. MODE = the method through which you access inspiration, and use that for developing Relationships. ATTITUDE = the means through which you communicate/express yourself to your world, and interpret the communication and expressions from your world. CHIEF FEATURES = the habits used to protect yourself from presumed dangers and threats to any of the above.  
      All of this falls into the elaboration for Step Three, by the way.
       
      [Maureen] So if you went into "action" during the Oct-Dec time period -- would that be in "reaction" to your Chief Features?
       
      MEntity: We do not understand your question.
       
      [Maureen] If this time period is related to the CFs -- and you "act" or create at that time -- is this related to the Cfs?
       
      MEntity:
      No. When we get into examples, this may be clearer.
       
      Before we continue, we will take one of you as an example for how to utilize step three, and help you walk through the assessment. Who will volunteer? Just one, for now.
       
      [Maureen] me?
       
      MEntity: Yes, Maureen.
       
      [Maureen] do you want me to give you what I have?
       
      MEntity: Share one significant event and in what time frame it occurred.
       
      [Maureen] OBSERVATION, PASSION/RESERVE, REALIST, CFs (STUBBORNNESS, SELF-DEP, IMPATIENCE): People “insisting/wanting” to pay me Apr-Jun($), Jul-Aug(barter), Oct-Dec($).
       
      MEntity: So that we are clear: these are the same events of significance, occurring at different points in the year?
       
      [Maureen] yes - similar events / so the "same' – yes
       
      MEntity:
      This would then count as ONE significant event, even if it is cycles or repetition, and we would go with where it began: in the realm of your MODE. However, it will still "mean something" that it occurred in these other seasons, and we can address that. The arcing of significance, though, would be in that this is a Significant Event regarding Inspiration, your Mode, and Relationships.
       
      Our walkthrough with you will lead to step FOUR) Comprehension. What will lead to Comprehension, is the full Integration from step THREE, which is making sense of what this means to you.
       
      In this case, having the symbolic context of your Mode, Inspiration, and Relationships, it seems almost "too obvious" that this Significant Event is a process that is inviting you to relate in ways that bring the circuit of Inspiration to a wholeness in your Relationships regarding your services. It was an opportunity for you to Comprehend that your services have value that, while difficult to quantify, CAN be quantified in a way that helps that Comprehension. Therein lies the Comprehension, or Step Four: you are PART of the equation of value, not the entire equation, in a Relationship, in any terms of exchange.
       
      In terms of your own Mode of Observation, then, it would mean that this Significant Event should be glaring, obvious, and clear, and if it is rejected, you are not seeing clearly, or refusing to see clearly what is so obvious.
       
      [Maureen] I can see it – lol
       
      MEntity:
      Yes, you can.
       
      And by using this Review, you can then build from the Experience in a way that changes you, rather than hints at possibilities that you refuse, deny, or resist.
       
      Does all of this make sense to you?
       
      [Maureen] yes it does
       
      MEntity: Another example from another student is requested. Yes, Janet. Share as Maureen shared.
       
      [Janet] I participated in a dance competition in June, first in many years. I did not do well for a variety of reasons. But it haunts me now. I'm in Power mode. Might be my self-dep that alters my impressions of it now.
       
      MEntity: What part of June? The closer to July, the more one would want to consider the next" season" as well; in this case, the Attitude.
       
      [Janet] Mid-June. But I am Stoic.
       
      MEntity: NOTE: Any Significant Event that resides on the cusp of a "season" would do well to consider the context next to it.
       
      [Janet] And goal of Dominance to complete the sequence...
       
      MEntity:
      A fair span of consideration for a cusp is 3 days before the next context.
       
      In assessing your Significant Event, Janet, one would consider the event in context: in your case, in the context of Power Mode. Keeping in mind that "MODE = the method through which you access inspiration, and use that for developing Relationships," and that Power Mode is about relating through your degree of PRESENCE, we can begin to extract the significance of this event, or Integrate it.
       
      In this case, you went on full display, not only for others to see, but for you to see, just how PRESENT you are with yourself. Were you fully merged into the movements of your dance? Were you present with yourself *as a dancer*, or were you distracted by your past performances as a dancer, or your future assessment as a dancer?
       
      [Janet] Oh bingo
       
      MEntity: This is significant to you because it let you see where you are in your use of that Mode, in your use of Power, in your willingness to Be Present (in relationships).
       
      [Janet] So if you do not or cannot make full use of your mode, you may miss opportunities? Is this a way of evaluating how to approach future events?
       
      MEntity:
      And therein lies your Comprehension, or Step Four. That you fall into Oppression of yourself to protect yourself from the presence and power of others, rather than stand in your own Authority and confidence with whatever, however, and wherever you are with yourself NOW.
       
      [Janet] Very valid. And in retrospect all my previous good showings at comps made full use of Power mode. I see it now.
       
      MEntity:
      You will always make "full use" of your Mode. It is your Mode. It is functioning in one way or another, be it in Authority, or in Oppression.
       
      The key here is in your Conscious Review: continue to condemn your performance and lose all useful meaning (Integration) from it, or retroactively allow THAT PERFORMANCE to be OKAY. Take back your Authority, and bring yourself back to you (Presence), by understanding that it was its own performance, and not a defining moment the wipe out all other performances, past, future, or present.
       
      [Janet] A most helpful Review. Thank you.
       
      [Maureen] So is that how the CFs come into "play" -- at the end of the year? As we look back we "assign" a "negative" or "positive" reaction/response to our events?
       
      MEntity:
      Maureen, that is valid. The "season" of Chief Features tends to be when most do any kind of Review, but when done without Consciousness, there tends to come only a review of what went wrong, what needs to change, what you will do differently, etc. And then the cycle perpetuates in the new year.
       
      [Maureen] and I just saw Janet "shift" -- so if you allow yourself to shift from a "negative" to a "positive" view you can pull your OLs into the positive?
       
      MEntity: Yes, Maureen; it is an immediate effect.
       
      [Janet] But is it also valid to use what you know about the seasonal impact of the overleaves to prepare yourself for a coming event?
       
      MEntity: Janet, because this mapping is based in Review, it tends to be the case that it is only useful in retrospect, rather than in anticipation.
       
      [Janet] Ah. But I imagine some awareness won't hurt in the future.
       
      MEntity: However, knowing the "seasonal emphasis" can help you to gauge your anticipated events in a way that then allows for more immediate Integration from within the Experience.
       
      [Janet] I can see that.
       
      MEntity:
      For instance, had you known about this before your dance, you could have brought a consciousness to your dance that embraced your Power and presence. But that is also a realization that one can make at any time of the year.
       
      When your Reviews are only based upon what went wrong, what needs to change, etc, then it tends to be the case that your entire next year begins with Actions/Goals that stem from disappointment, failings, etc, and the stories repeat in many ways then. When you are RELATING, consider your Mode. When you are fulfilling intentions, consider your GOAL. When you are socializing and communicating, consider your ATTITUDE. and so on.
       
      What we have shared so far is a symbolic mapping of your Year in Review that helps you to bring Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension. Keep in mind that nearly all of what you have labeled as "significant events" comes with great benefit, if Comprehended. When there is lack of Comprehension, even the best of events can be dismissed. When Comprehension is involved, everything is amazing and beneficial.
       
      However, it is not lost on Essence that many events of significance simply cannot be Comprehended while within the confines of time and space, and in those instances, the freedom you give yourself NOT to comprehend (until you can) is a Comprehension in itself.
       
      To clarify our mapping of the year, the reason Chief Features are assigned to Fall, is that it is an Assimilative time of year, and therefore brings up the Instinctive Center, which often prompts fears. Assimilation is a process of filtering and organizing experiences, and this often means letting things die for the sake of rebirth, if you will.
       
      What we have shared with you is a process that is a crude parallel to how Essence Reviews an entire lifetime, except in far more detail and analysis, but your participation while from "inside" the life adds a level of profundity to afterlife Review that can only come from your participation now.
       
      Imagine the difference between walking a path through a grove of fruitful trees carrying a basket for collecting those ripened fruits, and taking time to eat many of them along the way, versus walking through that same path without a basket, and only carrying a few fruits in hand, able to maybe eat part of one along the way. The basket and the eating are your Awareness and Integration, which naturally lead to Comprehension, or a full basket at the end of the life. To continue with our metaphor, it would be similar to handing over whatever fruits are in your arms at the time, but leaving many uncollected. Some fragments "hand over their fruits" as their arms fill, and some just keep piling on top until older fruits drop off, and only recent fruits are then collected, or the other way around.
       
      [GeraldineB] What about the ongoing Reviews with Essence, i.e., the 7-year Review?
       
      MEntity: Geraldine, in most instances of Review, it is merely an uploading process, if you will, for Essence to sort through. It is not a Comprehension on the level of Personality.
       
      [Oscar] Do Scholars collect more due to their more frequent uploading?
       
      MEntity:
      Oscar, in keeping with the metaphor, Scholars come with their very own truck, but again, their collecting and uploading does not equate Comprehension.
       
      To share with you more creative, Personality-based Review, one can also use such things as intentional synchronicities, or oracles. Creating a layout for a Tarot Card reading of your year can be helpful. Looking at significant Transits in your Astrology can be helpful. Casting Runes, etc.
       
      [Janet] I'm sorry but what is an "intentional synchronicity"?
       
      MEntity: Janet, we used that phrase to describe the intent for a system of randomness to act as a representation or reflection of specifics.
       
      [Janet] Oh, like tarot cards or the like.
       
      MEntity: That is an example, yes.
       
      [hanna3175] iching!
       
      MEntity:
      Correct.
       
      Intentional Synchronicity. The intentional aspect is important, as it defines the circuit used for symbolic communication. Anything can be used when using Intentional Synchronicity. This is how dreams and omens can become significant to some. It is a valid means of establishing a language between Personality and Essence, or "the universe," etc.
       
      [Maureen] The question posed "creates" the answer -- that is why the "question" is so important -- even with you Michael!
       
      MEntity:
      Even the arrangements of toppings on a pizza can be "read," if there is a system defined/intended. Tea Leaf reading is no different from reading toppings on a pizza, for that matter. This process is a use of the Higher Moving Center, or the capacity for extracting Beauty. The ability to recognize patterns from within randomness. It is a skill that requires honesty, however, because it can also lead to "seeing" anything in everything.
       
      In conclusion today:  By using the map we have described, and the steps for moving through Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension, you can begin your 2012 on a higher cycle, if you choose, rather than as a repeated cycle, or as an extended cycle. By "higher cycle" we simply mean that it continues to build upon what has come, rather than circles back to it.
       
      We will work with Troy in sharing in our next Open Monthly Workshop then just how one might start a higher cycle after a Comprehensive Review.
       
      NOTE: in your process of Review, we suggest taking your time, playing with various ways of understanding your significant event in terms of how it benefited you, and not simply making note of them and then discarding the process if it is frustrating. It can be daunting, we know, but it is an exercise of a "muscle" that is latent and fairly ignored, so it will not always seem easy or fun, at first. If you find you are not making any sense of your Review, or not getting to your point of Comprehension, as revealed by a sense of relief, "a-ha" moment, or enthusiasm, then set it down and come back to it later.
       
      Your life will still be there.

      2010 Review and 2011 OVERLEAVES
       
      MEntity:
      A request for a review of December and of 2010 in general has been made for starting, so we will cover that, first, and then respond to questions before going into 2011.
       
      As many of you already understand, the Overleaves that we use to describe a year do not describe energies that are being imposed upon a frame of time, but rather a description of the energies being generated collectively during that frame of time. The same could be said of your own Overleaves: your own overleaves are descriptions of genetic dynamics that have a spectrum of manifestations that are described by the Overleaves. You are not "confined" by those Overleaves any more than you are "confined" by the fact that you are Human, for instance. In other words, Overleaves for a year, or for a person, describe patterns that are generated from within the structure, but how those patterns are used, directed, rejected, exploited, etc, are still rather limitless. When it comes to our describing the energies for a time frame (a year), it is much like sharing with you the type of weather that is "outside," and how you respond to that, participate in that, ignore t, etc. is up to you. If you choose to participate in any way in your world, then these Overleaves would have some potential bearing on your awareness, and can help in many ways to bring understanding, peace, greater choices, and better navigation.
       
      The Overleaves for 2010, in general, were described as an Emotionally-Centered SAGE Year with a Goal of Dominance, Power Mode, Spiritualist Attitude, with the Chief Features of Arrogance/Self-deprecation being explored.
       
      As each Overleaf tends to correspond to a "season," the Chief Features tend to become amplified for exploration in the months from October through December. Chief Features are technically NOT Overleaves, but we include them under the general term for convenience.
       
      There are several ways that we can share our perception of the Overleaves and how these play out in the world for a time frame, but for simplicity and relevance, we will try to focus, in general, for our Students and older souls. In light of that, it would be fair to say that December has "not been easy" for our students, nor the older soul, in general. The past year was one that was intended to bring great overhaul of certain patterns that each student felt was limiting and in need of altering. The retrospect of the past year has been disappointing to many. In addition to that disappointment, it appears that the year seems to have had more of a command and demand upon the individual than the individual had upon the year. Add to that the feeling that the new year is impending, there might even be a sense of chaos or electrical static in the consciousness, which may be played out in the environment as well.
       
      We have already shared insight in previous monthly reports about the pitfalls of COMPARISONS, which are hallmarks of Arrogance and Self-deprecation, but we will remind you here that it is still a tactic that one would want to keep in check, if one chooses to see the life more clearly. Because the year was a mix of Dominance, Power, and Spiritualism, there was a great sense of possibility in the intent for taking leadership of the life through Power, or Presence.
       
      What we have seen most of our students doing is aiming high, but landing low. For some, this will feel as if what was intended was not fully accomplished, and is therefore disappointing. However, it is fairly important to keep in mind that the very mix of this past year's energy describes a natural tendency to see all of the possibilities, which means it would be difficult NOT to aim high. In looking back at the year, we know of very few students who did not actually implement a pivotal, important, and altering pattern that was directly in line with these higher intentions. The problem for some is that it has not been revealed exactly how that pivotal pattern is tied into the higher aims, and so as the year passes into another, it feels as if the intentions may have been lost, but we doubt that they have been.
       
      What we would suggest for each of you to do before the end of your year is to look back over your year and notice one to three pivotal events, people, relationships, choices, etc, that have come to now be a part of your life. However unrelated these pivotal things may be, they are tied directly to your original, higher aims. If you are unclear as to what your higher aims may have been, it can be easy to assess what they were/are by looking at what you wish had happened in 2010 that did not happen, or did not happen in a way you had wished. Understanding that the pivotal things that have happened in your year are tied to higher aims, may shed light in what you could be getting from those pivotal patterns that you may otherwise miss. December brings with it an opportunity to SEE YOURSELF.
       
      Arrogance fears being seen too closely, while Self-deprecation fears not being seen clearly enough, or being misunderstood. If you have dismissed the past year as a "bad year," you have probably fallen into the pattern of Arrogance.  If you are looking forward to the next year as making up for this past year, or as a new context through which you will try again to prove yourself, you are probably exploring the Self-deprecation energies. Of course, many of you will relate to both.
       
      Your opportunity now is to see yourself beyond your judgments and disappointment. Truly SEE YOURSELF. Let yourself be okay with what you experienced. To be okay with a gentle recalibration for the new year as a part of life, not a means to make up for failures. This also applies to others in your life. It is an opportunity to see others more clearly, to see beyond their disappointing you, failing you, and to see beyond your judgments of them. This includes those who have died.
       
      Death can often leave those remaining extant to experience a kind of resentment, anger, and disorientation that then fuels Arrogance and Self-deprecation. It is okay that these fragments have exited, even if one does not understand why, or how, and that none of it makes sense. December's Arrogance and Self-deprecation, then, are opportunities to rise beyond all speculation, prejudices, and imposed perceptions to see to the truth, the love, and the beauty/energy of the self, the life, and others
       
      We will open the queue now for questions that may be relevant to the past year in terms of the Overleaves and how world events may have been a reflection of them.
       
      *****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN************
       
      [Bobby2] Where has Julian Assange and Wikileaks played in these overleaves?
       
      MEntity: This could be said to have nearly epitomized the year's Overleaves in that it was all about the exploration of Sage, Dominance, Power, Spiritualist, and Arrogance. With an intense push for Dissemination, the Sage energy is present, along with the emphasis on taking control through taking the Lead against Dictatorship, regaining Power through Authority over Oppression, and removing fear through the Spiritualist's Verification, rather than Beliefs. Of course, this prompted Arrogance in the fearful reactions to the Vulnerability that this presented to those who have been representing Negative Pole positions of these Overleaves. Those who felt vulnerable then pushed for that vulnerability to be emphasized so as to bring that same fear out in others. In short, the "wikileaks" scenario is one of the planet's "pivotal events" of 2010 that will have lasting patterns that would bring about changes that most on the planet prefer in the long run. It also played out in the world stage a representation of the year's overleaves, almost characterized as one side playing the Negative Poles, and the other playing out the Positive Poles.
       
      [ValSage_Priest] What then can the living do to ease their passing of a loved one, removing themselves from the resentment, anger, disorientation that fuels Arrogance and Self Dep? Thank You, So nice to feel/resonate with all of you again, Val
       
      MEntity: Each fragment will have his or her own process for grieving, and we do not mean to imply that this process should not include resentment, anger, disorientation. We also know that it would be absurd to imply that it ever gets "easier." That being said, the process can be clarified (stripped of unnecessarily painful aspects) by focusing directly on the GRIEF, not the RELIEF. By this we mean that most who experience prolonged pain do so, ironically, by struggling desperately to understand WHY as a form of relief. There is a sense that if it just made sense, or could be explained, or if there were a reason, then the pain would be lifted and replaced with a peace, or at least an understanding. Grieving is the process of accepting a profound Truth. That Truth is usually that someone or something is no longer present in a way that you wish that it would have remained. Accepting that something or someone is no longer present is difficult enough without imposing the WHY of that apparent loss or division. Mourn that loss, that change, that death. Allow the Grief to come, even if in wails or brooding silence. Therein lies the path to relief. But to focus only on Relief can bypass the Grief, and prolong the pain. The understanding and the truths about the experience will come. But never before the grieving is completed.
       
      [Jon2] I have been feeling like I am "on the cusp" of achieving the things I want for a while now, and making definite progress, but not quite getting there. I have seen a lot of friends in a similar situation, having made definite progress without reaching their goals. You said that we were "aiming high", does that mean that our goals are unreachable or invalid?
       
      MEntity: When we said that we see our students "aiming high," we might also have said "aiming wide." What we meant was that a broad net has been cast, so to speak, and that net is going to reel in some catches that are entirely relevant to the "big catch" you may be seeking. To ignore what has been brought in so far, or to ignore the changes and achievements of the past year, out of disappointment for not landing the big catch, would be similar to throwing yourself off the boat, or "cutting of your nose to spite your face." Your "cusp" is not idealized or imagined. Most of our students who intended to make a change and do something different for their lives in 2010 are in that same stage.  Though it is your choice, we would say that to keep moving toward your intention would be Good Work.
       
      [Jon2] That is how I feel too, but it is nice to hear someone else say it 🙂
       
      [corinne] 2010 has been a year of huge upheaval and transition in my life with many positive new courses set and indeed nothing really achieved or finished yet. Could you give some guidelines to us in how we single out these pivotal events in the past year that will better lead us to achieving our "high/wide aims"?
       
      MEntity: For the most part, we see those in your similar position as having ADDED something to the life in some way in the past year that is indicative of the pivotal. Added a relationship, a project, a new address, etc. Though we would not limit it to this, we would say that a fairly accurate assessment would include looking back to see what is NEW in the life that either still remains now, or at least the repercussions of it remain. At least one to three major NEW things, people, relationships, projects, etc have been added and have altered your patterns toward the higher/wider aims.
       
      ******QUEUE CLOSED*******
       
      Now we will share what we perceive as the 2011 Overleaves.
       
      The underlying energies for the year are described by the ROLE and CENTERING. These would remain in effect all year. The rest of the energies are in effect all year, as well, but tend to build upon one another as the year unfolds.  The year unfolds
      from the Goal, to the Mode, to the Attitude, to the Chief Negative Features almost parallel to "seasons." Because the Goal starts off strong in January through March, the Role, Centering, and Goal tend to set the tone for the year.
       
      2011 Overleaves are:
      ROLE: PRIEST
      CENTER: MOVING
      GOAL: FLOW
      MODE: CAUTION
      ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic
      CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom
       
      For most of our students, the most important thing that would come from understanding this mix of energies is that it would do you well to start out your year as clear as possible in terms of intent for the year. The year ahead could be said to potentially feel as if one is on ice skates on a block of ice on a choppy ocean. For some of our more adventurous students, this "is going to be fun." But for many, it will mean either sitting down and holding on, working together in tight groups, or at least focusing exactly on the direction intended to go so that "looking down" does not distract from the path.
       
      With the Priest energy unfolding, we would say that the year would carry with it strong themes that display the spectrum between COMPASSION and ZEAL. The struggle for continued extension and placement of RIGHTS in various contexts will probably stay in the collective consciousness, with those who are for these Rights playing out Compassion, while those who refuse those Rights playing out Zeal. With the spectrum between Compassion and Zeal playing out, we would think that POLITICS will stay front and center in the media as reflective of the continued shift from the Young paradigm to the Mature Paradigm. This is because the political arena is quite effective in reflecting the mass psyche of a time or place.
       
      Politics have been the stomping ground of the Young Souls in the same way that Religion has been the stomping ground of the Baby Souls, but with the aging Essences dominating your world, these institutions are not being replaced, but rather repopulated. The Mature and Old are finding their way into Politics as more and more Mature Souls push for valid representation and uncovering of corruption. Because Mature Souls do not subject themselves to segregation, despite longing for like-mindedness, they are populating nearly every institution that was usually held in control by a specific Soul Age. Religions, then, are seeing the effects of this, as well.
       
      We bring in Religion in particular because it has long ago become simply another form of politics. In the year ahead, we would think that this institution is also brought into the collective consciousness as either collapsing into Zeal, or evolving into Compassion along with the context of RIGHTS.
       
      The Moving Center of a year usually shows up as a sense of constant movement, with many actually experiencing relocation in those years, and often large quantities of fragments exiting in Physical Plane events. These things are not easy to validate in terms of our Overleaves for the year because these things happen "all the time," but we can say that in Moving Centered years, there is usually an element of emphasis and profundity about these events that other years tend not to have.
       
      With the Goal of Flow opening a Moving-centered Priest year, as we alluded before, AIM OF VISION is probably the most important key phrase to remember.
       
      With an AIM OF VISION, then the pattern may tend toward everything falling into place in a way that cascades toward that vision. Because of the nature of Flow, it would mean that the challenge is to trust in that flow, rather than to control it or fight it. It would mean adapting to the cascade effect, recalibrating quickly, rather than being preoccupied with correction.
       
      When we say AIM OF VISION, it only means that you decide what ONE THING you wish to do, experience, see, complete, accomplish, etc. in 2011 and then let that be the aim. Everything else is presumed to be a part of that aim. For instance, even if "going to work" conflicts with your more creative endeavors, it would be presumed that your going to work is PART of what can be contributing to your creative endeavors. To become preoccupied with "if only," might bring about the difficulties. Such as "if only I didn't have to work so much, I could do my creative projects."
       
      With the Goal of Flow for the year, it brings with it the spectrum between FREEDOM and INERTIA.
       
      As the year opens up into January through March, for those who have that clarity of aim, the year may start out feeling quite free, light, and almost as if you now may catch your breath, and breathe. For those who are not so sure, still preoccupied with corrections, comparisons, or disappointments, the year might move into a state of INERTIA, feeling as if you are running in place, or moving with a momentum but with no sense of direction.
       
      To clarify your AIM OF VISION will not mean that you are choosing only one thing to accomplish in the year, but that you are simply choosing one emphasis that will help you to keep your footing. In other words, choose that one thing that, if reached, you know would be a "good thing" for you.
       
      Choosing that one thing to aim for will not sacrifice any others in any significant way.
       
      An analogy: When a student receives or deciphers his or her Overleaves, it will never truly matter if those Overleaves are 100% "correct" if the aim of that student is to aim for the Positive Poles. This is not to say that there are not correct overleaves, but that it is the aim that makes the difference, not the words. If a Sage thinks he is a Warrior and aims for Persuasion instead of Dissemination, the mere act of aiming for his idea of a positive pole warrior will make him a positive pole sage.
       
      And so it is with your aim in the year ahead:
       
      Aiming for anything that is significant and important to you will naturally align all of the things that are significant and important to you. The reason we suggest this idea of Aim of Vision is because it is also in alignment with the energies of Priest, and this means a natural kind of support for that aim is in place. The cliche of the "vision board" would not be amiss in exploring, either.
       
      In our monthly Energy Reports, we can more specifically speak to how these Overleaves are showing up in your world, but for now, we can say that the main arenas of 2011 would most likely be Politics, Religion, and Weather/Climate.
      We will open the floor for comments/questions for the remainder of the hour. Though we have more to say on the interpretation of the overleaves for the year, we can do so as the year unfolds.
       
      ******QUEUE IS NOW OPEN******
       
       [TimW] Are there any specific positive affirmations that we would most benefit from in the coming year?
       
      MEntity: If one is to use "positive affirmations," we would suggest that they be customized to your Aim of Vision. For instance, if one is aiming to complete a novel, but one is stuck at work, distracted by a relationship, etc., then one could affirm, "Even in this, I am contributing to the completion of my novel." This kind of reminder might help one to see the point of these so-called "distractions." One must eat and have shelter and the tools for writing, so going to work is actually a contribution to the novel; and being responsible to another, compassionate, nurturing, understanding, etc are food for the emotions and intellect that can be used to fuel the writing. A "generic" affirmation might be: "Everything I DO is contributing to my Aim."
       
      [Mstudent_23] What is the PART of the Moving CENTER for 2011?
       
      MEntity: The PART fluctuates, but the pattern emerging appears to be Emotional, lending the year a rather reactionary element to it with knee-jerking, volatility, and difficulty communicating past feelings.
       
      [Bobby2] Other than your summary, you really didn't mention weather/climate much... care to elaborate a bit more there?
       
      MEntity: 
      In a Higher Centered year, or a Moving Centered year, there tend to be greater emphasis on the Physical Plane patterns of weather as reflective of the collective consciousness. In Higher Centered years, the impact is usually global, and often with more than one event, such as the Higher-Emotional year of 2005 that was rung in by the Indian Ocean Tsunami and exited with Hurricane Katrina. In Moving Centered years, the weather and climate still tend to get emphasized and intense, but peppered throughout the Physical Plane in highly-localized ways.
       
      What we see over 2011 is a collage of events that some will take and use as support for the "2012" theories. Major droughts "here," raging fires "there," freak blizzards "here," torrential rains "there," devastating earthquakes, etc. Those who fear and crave the "prophecies" related to 2012 will find most of their fodder in the weather of 2011. The weather and climate is still greatly misunderstood and carries with it the collective instinctual fear and awe of that "something greater" that can be tangibly imposed upon the masses. Therefore, it can still be hijacked as a reference of "proof" of things to come.
       
      [Brian_W] would this be related to the mass-exit to stage left that Michael said that large number of fragments would be undertaking?
       
      MEntity: Weather appears to be moving in a direction that would be experienced as undoubtedly more volatile and unpredictable due to many factors unrelated to any "dimensional shift," but related to a natural cycle that the Earth has sustained over and over. In a Moving-Centered year, the effects tend to be much more obvious and tangible, and this is why we say that Weather is one of the main characters of 2011, but also because there will be those eager to showcase it as evidence of ominous things to come.
       
      [Geraldine] Of course having a population explosion that will reach 7 billion people this year will have nothing to do with the size and range of any disaster -- i.e., a hurricane that might have affected 100 people will now affect 100 million.
       
      MEntity: That is correct, Geraldine. Many natural disasters are not worse in terms of intensity, but that there are simply more things and people in the line of them. In response to Astarte: no, not much would be different except the awareness and emphasis on these events.
       
      [Kathryn41] are earthquakes and volcanic eruptions included in what you refer to as 'weather'? They are really geological events but can have impact on the weather.
       
      MEntity: Yes, Kathryn.
       
      [Angela] Earlier you mentioned overleaves being a description of genetic DYNAMICS, can you explain more about these dynamics and their influences?
       
      MEntity: All Overleaves are genetic, in that they can be found in the DNA of every individual, and this is what springs forth in creating the Body and Personality. There is more "nature" to a person than "nurture," in other words, even though there is a mix, and the choices of the individual can affect how either are emphasized. If one were to use our system alongside the study of genetic markers, there would be a time when Overleaves can literally be found in the DNA of an individual. Personality structures are rooted and blueprinted in genetics, but built from the experiences of the life.
       
      [Angela] could ALL overleaves be encoded in an individual's DNA? or only the ones specific to that person
       
      MEntity: In the same way that a Body is predesigned to a great degree, but experiences such as food, climate, activities can alter that design, so are Personalities born and raised. The entire set of Overleaves could be found in every individual, but only certain markers to activate code combinations. We are speaking through a non-medical channel, so our terminology is limited.
       
      [Kathryn41] so this is how a walk-in can essentially 're-wire' the genetic markers over time to reflect the new overleaves - makes sense
       
      MEntity: Those Overleaves that are not the individual's would be dormant, and are rarely activated in replacement of others. When there is an alteration of the active overleaves, it is usually limited to the axis. For instance, a "walk in" might activate Growth over Re-evaluation, etc.
       
      [Angela] can beliefs be used to activate these code combinations?
       
      MEntity: 
      The alteration of one's DNA by beliefs is about as easy as concentrating hard to change your hair color, or skin color. One can always mask or alter those things, but cannot truly change them.
       
      We will conclude here. We will continue to elaborate upon the Overleaves for the year as the year unfolds.
       
      Good day to each of you. Goodbye.

      MEntity: By "meditate," we describe a triad of effort that starts with Examination, moves into Implementation, and then into Realization. For July, it would do our students well to examine which of the primary centers (Moving, Emotional, or Intellectual) is least-used or most out of balance, (this should be rather obvious to most of you) and then implement a behavior that brings about that Centering into your life. If you lack balance of Movement, then for a part of your week, your day, emphasize Movement: take a walk longer than you normally would; literally exercise; dance; stretch; do Yoga, etc. If you lack Emotional balance, then expose yourself to elements that provoke or soothe your emotions, such as listening to music (actually listening to it, not just having it as background); experiencing a live concert or performance; watching the sky, sunset, clouds; sitting with nature; etc. If you lack balance of Intellect, then for part of your week or your day, implement Intellectual experiences such as crossword puzzles, brain teasers; singing; shouting out randomly in nonsensical sounds to provoke laughter; telling the truth to a friend or self; writing a list of gratitude; sitting still; etc. On the other side of these experiences one would find the Realizations that come as part of Meditation.
