[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: January 2007]
[Kathryn] How does one recognize the start of the 5th IM and what are the various steps/levels experienced as one progresses through the monad?
Though this question requires a session devoted to it entirely, we can respond briefly here.
One can recognize most easily the entrance to the 5th Internal Monad by a strong emphasis in the life to RECREATE IT.
The 5th Internal Monad is a process of evaluating the life and all of its accomplishments, fulfillments, agendas, goals, experiences, etc. and then RECREATING the life from a place that could be said to be from a philosophy of “If I knew then what I know now.”
If one equates one's age with a sense of conclusion or lack of time, then one has either NOT completed the Fourth Internal Monad, or one has completed it in a Negative Pole (which are virtually the same thing.)
If one looks up and feels an inspiration to experience the freedom gained from knowledge extracted from previous experiences, then one is probably entering the 5th Internal Monad from a place of strong integration of the 4th Internal Monad.
The 5th Internal Monad could be said to have a Positive Pole of RECREATION, and a Negative Pole of RESENTMENT.
