  • Growing into Overleaves

    Janet

    This material was taken from a private session originally posted on January 22, 2011.

     

    Q: I'm a little concerned of our daughter, as she's become really shy outside the circle of the closest family and friends. She's been a very strong-willed toddler, and when she was younger I would've never imagined she'd be a shy child, but now she is. I wasn't shy as a child, so I have troubles relating to her feelings. What would be the best way to deal with this now, to encourage her, but at the same time make her feel it's okay to be shy?

     

    MEntity:

    We see this as a stage of her developing consciousness that is simply particular to her way of becoming aware of "Other."

     

    It is only just dawning on this fragment that "other" is not always a safe or familiar extension of "mother, father, or me." This is natural. Shyness, in this case, does not appear to be based in fear as much as it is in the beginning of her Overleaves being ignited. A child "grows into" Overleaves, and though it takes approximately 7 years for this to be completed, the various Overleaves begin to manifest at different times.

     

    During the 2nd Internal Monad, the first of the Overleaves will begin to manifest, and this will set the stage for the general arc of the entire lifetime. For instance, if the Attitude sets first, then the life would take on a more philosophical or Intellectual tone, whereas if the Mode is activated, then the life may bring more emphasis to the themes of relationships and intimacy, while the Goal would bring a life focused more on the gaining of experiences for the point of that Goal.

     

    This first activation usually happens during the 6th Stage of the 2nd Internal Monad as Autonomy is being realized. In this case, the Goal has been activated, and this means the reality of the spectrum of Acceptance has now been comprehended to some meaningful degree. The 2nd Internal Monad is already a rather fragile process, with a great need for supply of security and value from caretakers, and when a child activates a Goal of Acceptance, then that supply is in even greater need.

     

    Bringing to her a sense of safety when she needs it is exactly what she needs, and upon securing that realization that she is safe, she will then begin her own methods for how to Accept or Be Accepted. Emphasizing her value to you, to herself, and to the world, can also help to expand the sense of self-esteem, which would then help her to move more confidently through the challenges of Acceptance.

     

    Your own history that lacked shyness is because of your igniting your Attitude first, which gave you a very early, quick, and clear perspective of what and who you were in relation to others, allowing for a more solid sense of self.

      OMW - Sep 16, 2012 - The Circuitry of Overleaves
       
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      (Note: The Overleaf Map is referenced in this transcript.)
       
      [MEntity]
      Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin discussion on the topic of choice.
       
      Though the Overleaves function as a whole, they do function in a similar way to how one might understand how the body works.
       
      The body works as a whole, but, depending upon circumstances, various parts are of emphasis, serving the whole.
       
      Understanding your body as a network of circuitry, all entwined in a way that is inseparable, but distinct in parts, is much the same way that your Overleaves can be understood.
       
      What we will discuss, first, is the broader types of circuitry, and then move more into your variations.
       
      We are using the term "circuitry" here for this workshop, but we do not mean to imply it as a permanent term within our teaching. It is simply a way to visualize this topic.
       
      We have shared a bit about contextual circuitry in previous exchanges with our students, and we will review those, first.
       
      The Personality always leads with one Overleaf, however swiftly the circuitry is ignited to cascade throughout the rest of the Overleaves. In various circumstances and contexts, various Overleaves will lead.
       
      Those with higher Frequencies may find their circuitry "faster" than those with lower Frequencies.
       
      CONTEXTUAL CIRCUITRY
       
      The Contextual Circuitries are: PROJECT, SOCIAL, INTIMACY, and MEDITATION.
       
      These are fairly straightforward in correlation:
       
      When one is working on a project, the Personality will tend to lead with the GOAL. When one is in a social setting, one tends to lead with the ATTITUDE. When one is seeking or nurturing Intimacy, one tends to lead with the MODE. When one is in any state of meditation, one tends to lead with the Centering.
       
      This is fairly easy to validate, as well.
       
      Consider these contexts in the workplace, for instance.
       
      When a project is the priority, one will tend to find one's Goal is challenged and/or fulfilled. When one is socializing, one may find that one's perceptions, philosophy, Attitude are challenged or highlighted. When one finds any eventual bonding, it is usually secured by the Mode.
       
      When pondering any of this, the Centering is activated.
       
      It will not matter what the project is, if your Goal is Acceptance, you may find that your capacity for Acceptance is challenged and/or fulfilled.
       
      It will not matter the social situation, you may find your Spiritualism challenged, revealed, and/or highlighted.
       
      And so on.
       
      Those are the Contextual Circuits.
       
      We will get to how the Body Type, Role, Casting, and Chief features get involved.
       
      Before we move on, do each of you find a sense of validation for these contexts? Do you have any questions?
       
      [Bobby] Yes, and not yet for me
       
      [ClaireC] Ditto
       
      [Maureen] yes -- I have a sense of validation for these contexts
       
      [MariLynn] moreorless...
       
      [GeraldineB] So, far those make pretty good sense -- especially Mode -- my relationships do tend to be more in observation mode, wait and see, few strong emotions (often in surveillance)
       
      [Janet] Yes, but I have trouble imagining how my Power mode works (or doesn't work) for Intimacy
       
      [MEntity] Janet, keep in mind that 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.
       
      [Janet] I keep forgetting that. Thanks.
       
      [MEntity] It is about owning your presence, being comfortable in your skin, "being yourself."
       
      [Janet] The names of the overleaves sometimes give first impressions that aren't necessarily accurate
       
      [MEntity] In other words, how you might evolve intimacy is in how much of "you" can be present, be permitted, allowed, without shame, silencing, etc.
       
      [Maureen] Observation for me -- when I am intimate means yes -- I can truly "see" you.
       
      [AnnH] So I would expect others to "see" me?
       
      [MEntity] Ann, was that a question about Observation?
       
      [MariLynn] thank you. well clarified. 
       
      [AnnH] Yes
       
      [MEntity]
      Then, yes. For Observation to foster intimacy, each is expected to be willing to "see," to truly see one another.
       
      As an aside, for another discussion, for intimacy to be fulfilling, it is key that one understand the Mode, as this gives insight into how you relate, and what you may expect of one who is growing closer to you.
       
      [MariLynn] I have a similar question-hard to see how aggression mode bodes well for intimacy!
       
      [MEntity]
      For you, MariLynn, 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.
       
      The Mode also describes what is expected of others, as well, as a means of relating.
       
      [MariLynn] yes! and it's been hard to find a partner who can, or wants to
       
      [MariLynn] omg, yes!! concur!!
       
      [MEntity]
      MariLynn, that is okay, or, at least, can be "okay." It is a "King" Overleaf, and is not intended to foster superficial intimacy and relationships.
       
      In addition to this for Observation, Sages inherently NEED to be seen, so Observation compounds the necessity for it.
       
      [MariLynn] is this also true to a large extent if someone is sage casted?
       
      [Diane_HB] I often notice myself using Observation in social situations, not necessarily Pragmatism.
       
      [MEntity] Diane, keep in mind that Observation Mode is not literal observation. You may find yourself observing others, but this is Pragmatic for you.
       
      [Diane_HB] I see
       
      [MEntity]
      Keep in mind that Pragmatism is a philosophy, a filter on reality.
       
      In a social situation, that will either manifest as being Practical, in your actual expression of self, in your exchanges, and in your evaluation of the worth of those exchanges, or as Dogma, stuck in routines that you have learned as a way to filter people out.
       
      [Janet] Clearly we need that future discussion about modes and intimacy.
       
      [Janet] And maybe one about social situations and attitudes.
       
      [MEntity]
      Dogma may show up as an inflexibility in what you find worth talking about, if you talk at all. Many with Pragmatism will be those who walk into a social situation, and then quietly, eventually, exit and wonder why the attempt was even made.
       
      Continuing.
       
      [Diane_HB] Thank you, that makes sense
       
      [MEntity] If there is a leading overleaf, then there would be a second, third, etc. in the circuit.
       
      [Bobby] Is this leading overleaf indicative of which one developed first in the life?
       
      [MEntity] Bobby, no. Centering is always developed first, in that case. It becomes the Meditative context of the life, then.
       
      [Bobby] I think what I may be referring to is for example, K's daughter, you've stated that a certain overleaf was turned on first...
       
      [MEntity] That would be one's core overleaf, and we will discuss that, next.
       
      [Bobby] lol... ok 🙂
       
      [Diane_HB] I thought the centering wasn't fixed until the 2nd IM, or are those different things?
       
      [MEntity]
      That would be correct, Diane, except that Centering is habitual, not fixed. The Overleaves are always present, even from birth, but until a fragment is approximately 7 years old, the Personality tends to be reflective of the caretakers, not the actual overleaves.
       
      However, Centering tends to be activated upon mobility, and habitual at the close of the 2nd Internal Monad.
       
      [Diane_HB] I see
       
      [MEntity]
      The sequence of the Contextual Circuit would tend to be dependent upon the expectations or intentions that are fueling or distracting the leading Overleaf.
       
      For instance, to fulfill a Project, the Goal will lead, but if that Project is one that is for the sake of Relating, then the Mode might be secondary; or if it requires a lot of discussion and sharing, the Attitude may be secondary. If it is done alone, it may be from the Meditative Centering.
       
      This secondary part of the circuit is vital for how the leading part is sustained in a Positive or Negative Pole.
       
      For example, if you are obligated to a Project, the Goal will still lead, and if you are not "into it," you may distract yourself with your Attitude, or more Social contexts.
       
      If you are evolving Intimacy, but your Projects are, ultimately, what you feel defines you, then you may be leading with your Mode in that relationship, but your Goal will draw you away from the intimacy.
       
      Circuitry is always shorted out by dishonesty.
       
      By "dishonesty" we mean it in a fairly clear way: that one is denying a truth by cloaking it.
       
      For example, if you are obligated to a Project, it may be true that you are not "into it," but distract yourself with social contexts as a way to avoid that truth. Honesty would either not do the project, or it would call upon the social context as support, not distraction.
       
      When a "circuit" is weakened, so to speak, the Chief Features come into play.
       
      Can each of you think of examples for yourself? Do you understand this path of circuitry?
       
      [Bobby] and others even 🙂
       
      [GeraldineB] I can remember instances, but I got a lot better quite a few years ago about not committing to something I had no intention of doing
       
      [AnnH] I think this happens constantly for me.
       
      [AnnH] Since just about everything is "supposed" to be a social context for me.
       
      [MariLynn] omg.....I DEFINITELY am in this right now. my 'project' is my obligation to be my father's FT caregiver
       
      [MariLynn] and, I am NOT into it.
       
      [Janet] Yes I see this. Work projects are often forced by circumstances rather than personal desires. But I can see this effect in past relationships as well.
       
      [Maureen] I would rather burn myself out -- rather than not complete something I`ve committed to -- which is another problem!
       
      [MariLynn] and, I can see this whole pattern as you've described....incl. the CF's have come up....esp. today
       
      [Diane_HB] I used to do this A LOT but have gotten better at being aware of it now.
       
      [MariLynn] ditto Maureen!
       
      [AnnH] From reading this, I realize in my 20s my goal was career and not so much social.
       
      [Maureen] ...which inherently shows a dishonesty with myself -- not good!
       
      [MariLynn] another ditto
       
      [MEntity] We are not speaking only to projects, but to relationships, social contexts, with secondary distractions or fuel, etc. We ask if you can see how this circuitry is at work in various contexts?
       
      [GeraldineB] I've learned to take the flack for saying "no"
       
      [Janet] Definitely can see it in all contexts.
       
      [MEntity] Even in your Meditative contexts. Can you not find your "center" because you are distracted with projects, relationships, etc?
       
      [ClaireC] Yes, Michael, and particularly how the CF's come in.

      [Janet] Yup.
      [Bobby] yes
      [MariLynn] yes
      [AnnH] yes
      [GeraldineB] yes
       
      [MEntity] The easiest way to determine if your circuitry, regardless of context, is weakened, is the question of whether you are DISTRACTED or ENTHUSIASTIC.
       
      [Janet] Oh! Good one! I see that right off.
       
      [MEntity] Enthusiastic here is not meant as prancing in pom poms and a perma-grin, but simply a "looking forward."
       
      [Maureen] yes! (sorry ...I couldn't find my centering!)

      [Maureen] 🙂

      [GeraldineB] and for Distracted, I would say caught up in the "should" or "ought to" mode of thinking

      [Maureen] (...that was a joke!)
       
      [MEntity] Maureen, we know.
       
      [Maureen] LOL

      [GeraldineB] LOL

      [AnnH] Yes, G. Very much.
       
      [MEntity] Geraldine, that is fair, but the "should" or "ought to" would not be the distraction; it would be what the distraction tried to avoid or ignore.
       
      [AnnH] Ah!

      [GeraldineB] which is . . .I don't want to do this and will PROCRASTINATE to NOT do it

      [AnnH] I often feel a lot of "I don't want to."

      [AnnH] Heh, psych
       
      [MEntity] There are plenty of "shoulds" and "ought to's" that are important and valid responsibilities, but distractions can make them difficult to fulfill.
       
      [Janet] I think of my life in terms of whether I'm bored or not bored. I see correlation to distracted or enthusiastic.
       
      [MEntity]
      That would be fair, Janet, as boredom is a lack of presence and connection to Essence. If Essence is put at a distance, boredom tends to be a result. Often, when one is not enthusiastic, one shuts down the resonance to Essence.
       
      We think that each of you see this clearly enough to benefit from the use of it in your choices and contexts, if you choose to apply this insight.
       
      We will add here that if one is looking at the Meditative Circuit, it is beneficial to understand that this is the first of the Overleaves to be activated and sustained, even if it is changeable and habitual. Centering will always go back to a more precognitive state of being, and therefore, is a context of innocence.
       
      In other words, when one seeks to find his "centering," or to meditate on his life, it is a return to innocence.
       
      Techniques and methods are helpful for the meditative state and circuitry, but this circuit is the context in every instance when you are alone.
       
      This is why aloneness is vital for the health of any Essence or Personality.
       
      Though aloneness is given a bad name in modern, highly-populated and dense societies, it is vital.
       
      Every time you are alone, you are leading with Centering, and that is supported or undermined by your distractions or enthusiasms.
       
      [AnnH] I am sorry to make this all about me, but I find that emotional centering makes it difficult to get things done when I don't "feel" like it.
       
      [MariLynn] I agree Ann
       
      [Diane_HB] I'm intellectually centered and I still can't get things done when I don't feel like it
       
      [MEntity]
      So to help heal or strengthen the circuitry of your Meditative context, your return to innocence, it can be as simple as fostering enthusiasm as the secondary circuit.
       
      This is a simple circuitry to address:
       
      For those who are Emotionally-Centered, there tends to be a necessity to foster or allow enthusiasm for Relationships, or The Mode, as the secondary circuit. For those who are Intellectually-Centered, there tends to be a necessity to foster or allow for Social and philosophical interactions, or the Attitude. For those who are Moving-Centered, there would tend to be a necessity for fostering enthusiasm, or allowing, for Projects to be fulfilled.
       
      In other words, the Emotionally-Centered can look at her Mode for how to relate to the self when alone. The Emotionally-Centered must be able to relate to herself as a means to be centered.
       
      [Maureen] What do you mean by: ``The Emotionally-Centered must be able to relate to herself as a means to be centered.`
       
      [MEntity] The Intellectually-Centered can look to her Attitude for how to interpret her life, how to interpret her place in society, as a means to return to her innocence and centered state.
       
      [Maureen] in general or something specific?
       
      [MEntity] Maureen, those who are emotionally-centered, when the Meditative circuit is weakened, can tend to wait or want for external inspiration to bring them back into a strengthened circuit of meditation and centeredness.
       
      [Maureen] I see
       
      [MEntity]
      They must find themselves to be inspiring again, to relate to themselves again.
       
      That is all that "relating" means: being inspired.
       
      [Maureen] ..and can look for distractions through other people?
       
      [MEntity]
      Maureen, yes, the Emotionally-Centered can often think that if the right relationship would come along, all would be well with the self. They are most prone to co-dependence.
       
      They can be distracted with relationships, which take them away from themselves, their centeredness, their innocence.
       
      When the Meditative circuit is weakened, it can greatly affect how the life is digested, how you see and experience yourself, and how divided or fractured you are within.
       
      Do each of you find resonance with this insight into these circuits, so far?
       
      [Bobby] yes

      [AnnH] Yes, sort of.

      [ClaireC] Very much so.

      [GeraldineB] yes -- it just doesn't "stick" with me -- it makes sense for the moment

      [Diane_HB] yes

      [Maureen] yes

      [AnnH] There's an intellectual resonance, but I can't really get a hold of it.

      [MariLynn] yes
       
      [MEntity]
      To help it "stick" with you, we suggest carrying with you the simple navigation between Distraction and Enthusiasm. The rest can be put into place after that.
       
      We have described contextual circuitry, which changes in any given situation, but there is also a Core Circuitry.

      CORE CIRCUITRY
       
      This is how your Overleaves network when not being led by a context.
       
      Though not an exact accuracy in all cases, it is easiest to assess your Core Overleaf by looking at how your various Essence and Overleaf patterns fall in the system.
       
      Looking at the "map" that Troy has shared with you, note where your known Overleaves fall.
       
      Include your Essence, Casting, Soul Age, and Level in your count.
       
      [MariLynn] do you mean what axis is most dominant?
       
      [MEntity]
      Your final assessment would be the count of how many fall into Inspiration, Expression, Action, or Assimilation.
       
      MariLynn, yes.
       
      [MariLynn] ok. that's what I thought
       
      [MEntity] Through a Sage, we can tend to be "wordier" than necessary, though we try to be succinct.
       
      [Bobby] lol

      [Maureen] LOL

      [Maureen] actually Michael -- that was pretty succinct!
       
      [MEntity]
      Do not include your Chief Negative Features.
       
      And only your Primary Centering.
       
      [GeraldineB] Michael was peeking again

      [Diane_HB] how about body types?
       
      [MEntity] Only the Primary
       
      [MariLynn] I didn't get the map but I have another chart....however what does old soul tend to fall into, ie. what axis?
       
      [MEntity]
      That would be Expression, MariLynn.
       
      Share your dominant Axis when you are ready. If you find that there is a tie among them, we will address that, too.
       
      [Maureen] I am 2-2-2-2- Michael

      [AnnH] Assimilation

      [Janet] Heavy on Expression axis; hardly any in the others (2-6-1-0)

      [Bobby] Action, followed by Inspiration
       
      [MEntity] We are unclear as to the numerical references, so we suggest either clarifying, or simply sharing the dominant, or tied, Axis or Axes.
       
      [Maureen] I am even across the board Michael

      [Diane_HB] I have 3 in Assimilation and 2 in all other axes

      [MariLynn] I am super dominant expression (5) 3 ins., 3 action and NO assimilation....no wonder I'm on disability!!

      [GeraldineB] I have big numbers 5s & 6s
       
      [MEntity] There should be 9 elements considered in your assessment: Role, Casting, Soul Age, Level, Goal, Mode, Attitude, Centering, Body Type.
       
      [Janet] Six of nine on Expression axis for me

      [AnnH] I have only 1 action

      [GeraldineB] I don't see anything for Level

      [MariLynn] with my body types, I am not sure which one is dominant. I feel almost equal in mars/merc.

      [GeraldineB] I have three and when Michael gives BTs, they're never in any particular order (or so I've seen them say)

      [MariLynn] yes
       
      [MEntity] For those with dominant Action, then the Goal is the Core Overleaf, and the Project Circuitry would tend to be fairly comfortable and appealing.
       
      [ClaireC] Can someone enlighten me on how to read this chart?

      [Maureen] OK -- Bingo!! I have a winner! 3 are in Action and 2, each, are in the other axis!

      [GeraldineB] I have three in 5 and three in 6
       
      [MEntity]
      For those with dominant Expression, then the Attitude is the Core Overleaf, and the Social Circuitry tends to be the most comfortable and appealing.
       
      For those with dominant Inspiration, then the Mode is the Core Overleaf, and Intimacy tends to come easily, or is most appealing as a circuitry.
       
      For those with dominant Assimilation, the Core Overleaf is Centering, and the Meditative Circuitry (aloneness) tends to be the most comfortable and appealing.
       
      If your elements are evenly distributed, you may tend to go with the default HUB of the Personality (which is different from the Core), and that is the Attitude.
       
      The HUB of the Personality is similar to the Brain being the hub of the body, but not necessarily the main emphasis of development for an individual.
       
      Understanding your Core Overleaf can help you to understand where most of your emphasis is on development.
       
      It helps you to understand the state of your moods, your health, and your energy levels.
       
      If your Core Overleaf is not fed enough, so to speak, the Personality starves, it begins to deteriorate in circuitry, which reflects in energy levels, health, and mood.
       
      So consider this, in light of your Core: if your core is Social, and your life is mostly aimed at Projects, you may find it impacts you in ways that are challenging. If your core is Intimacy, Relating, and your life is focused on Social or Philosophical circuits, you may find yourself challenged in mood, energy, health. And so on.
       
      [ClaireC] Michael, with 3 Inspiration and 3 Expression, which would be the Dominant Core?

      [GeraldineB] Ditto Claire's question -- I, too, am 3 Expression and 3 Inspiration
       
      [MEntity] Geraldine, we have stated that if your elements are evenly distributed, you may find that you default to the Hub (the Attitude).
       
      [GeraldineB] OK ... I misunderstood
       
      [MEntity]
      That would mean that it is quite important to develop and feed one's philosophies in the life.
       
      From this discussion, each of you can now see your Contextual Circuits, understand which Overleaf leads in those, and understand your secondary circuit as being a realm of distraction or as a fulfillment of enthusiasm. We have also shared your Core Overleaf, based on the distribution of elements that make up your Essence and Overleaves, and how this must be developed and tended to for your healthy mood, body, and energy.
       
      If one's health, mood, and energy levels may seem compromised, take a look at your Core Overleaf, and determine if you are "feeding" it well enough, tending to it, nurturing it, giving it the experiences it may naturally desire, etc.
       
      If one can move the Core Overleaf into some kind of strength of circuitry, it can make a great difference in the body, energy, and mood.
       
      [MariLynn] that's for sure!! I thought I *got* it....and then I think I started overthinking it
       
      [MEntity] We will conclude here for today. This is an introductory consideration for how the Overleaves work in more useful and meaningful ways beyond their basic definitions.
       
      [AnnH] What if we're lacking in one area?

      [Bobby] the final test will be given on the Causal and it will be open book(Akashic) har har har

      [Diane_HB] lol

      [MariLynn] lol Bobby!!
       
      [MEntity]
      Ann, where one tends to be lacking the most, one would tend to attract others who may have that area as dominant.
       
      Or one would tend to generate experiences that keep that circuitry alive in some way.
       
      (Note: In the editing process, I moved some lines around so they'd make better sense; also, there are a few that were duplicated -- again, to give clarity glb)

      Internal Monads
       
      [MEntity]
      Hello to each of you. We are here. We can begin now.
       
      We have been asked to speak about the processes we have named “The 7 Internal Monads.” We can define “Monad” in many ways, but here we will describe it as “the natural process toward wholeness,” or “the structure provided for two parts of a whole to eventually manifest even greater than the sum of those parts.” A Monad will always have two parts that are vital to the whole, but are eventually resolved, or comprehended, so that those two parts ARE the whole, and not divided.
       
      There are Internal and External Monads: the External Monads are variations on relationships between fragments; whereas Internal Monads are variations on relationships with the self, or within the self. These Monads are ALWAYS about “manifesting,” or generating a material counterpart as representation for that structure, process, and eventual wholeness. The External Monads are obvious in that they deal with the space and time between two incarnated fragments, but the Internal Monads are not often understood as having physical/manifested counterparts or representations, because they are often more abstract. However, these Internal Monads’ physical/manifested counterparts are THE LIFE, ITSELF. As we describe each Monad, this may become more clarified and obvious.
       
      The 7 Internal Monads are processed and manifested by the Personalities across lifetimes, and these processes and manifestations then contribute to the higher processes of the Essence that must complete a set of 7 Internal Monads for each Level of each Soul Age. In every lifetime, the Personality starts “from scratch” in initiating and taking on these Internal Monads, but the Essence retains the benefit of each Personality’s effort and does not have to start from scratch. Therefore, in any given lifetime, the Essence may be at the 4th Internal Monad, while the current Personality is in the 3rd Internal Monad, for instance. If that same Personality progresses to successfully process the 5th Internal Monad, then it progresses the Essence closer to completion of that particular Soul Level. If it helps one to differentiate between the Essence process of these, and the Personality process, it could be said that the Essence integrates Internal Monads, and the Personality contributes to that by processing as many of the 7 “Rites of Passages” as possible within a lifetime. “Internal Monads” and “Rites of Passages” are rather interchangeable here, but to make it easier to understand, this differentiation may help.
       
      It is rare that any Personality completes all 7 Internal Monads, or Rites of Passages within one lifetime. Even if a Personality lives to 80 years old, he or she may still have not completed any Rite of Passage beyond the 2nd, or 3rd, for instance. Using a very simple analogy: Imagine that the successful completion of a Rite of Passage is akin to a Personality filling a basket for Essence. Let us use Oranges as that which must fill the baskets. Personality One within a Soul Age Level will begin the process by fulfilling the First Rite of Passage in being successfully born. This fills the first basket of oranges for Essence. Personality One is also able to process Rite of Passages Two and Three, filling two more baskets with Oranges collected. Personality One takes on the beginning of the Fourth Rite of Passage and begins putting Oranges in the basket for Essence, but never really gets past this Rite of Passage, even though she lives to 90. She will remain locked in a mindset, behavior dynamic, and local perspective that is akin to having never evolved beyond a 30-something year old, despite her physical age.
       
      Personality One dies, and Essence now moves that row of baskets out of the way, sets up a new row of baskets for Personality Two, and Personality Two now begins his or her process of gathering Oranges for those baskets. Even though the new Personality must start from scratch in filling the baskets, it is easier now that there is precedence and experience that the new Personality would have access to, if open to Essence. In short, there must be AT LEAST one Personality/incarnation that can fill all the baskets successfully within one lifetime as a means to move Essence on to the next Level of Soul Age.
       
      In some rare instances when an Essence moves from one Soul Age Level into the next Level within the same lifetime, then that Personality not only filled the baskets enough to allow for Essence to move to the next Level, but now that there is a new Level, the Personality actually starts again from scratch in filling the baskets relevant to that new Level. This is similar to living “two lifetimes in one.” We say that it is similar, but it is not literal, though often it actually does appear to be a distinct line that defines that transition and then the lifetime seems to be divided into two very different lives. When this happens, the Personality will go through a kind of psycho-emotional “death” as its completion of 7 Internal Monads, and then a kind of psycho-emotional “birth” as it begins the next Level.
       
      There are 7 Rites of Passages/Internal Monads, and we will briefly describe each now. Each Internal Monad has 7 Stages within it. Each Stage has a Positive and Negative Pole. Every process through an Internal Monad will mean entering the Negative Pole, then exiting from the Positive Pole for each Stage. This means that a “successful” Internal Monad would be completing the 7th Stage in the Positive Pole, leaving the entire Monad in the Positive Pole. In keeping with the baskets of oranges analogy, a Negative Pole would simply be an unfilled basket.
       
      The 7 Internal Monads are: Birth, Autonomy, Independence, Manifestation, Recreation, Comprehension, and Death.
       
      These may be called by different names through our various channels, but the basic information should remain consistent. Although each Rite of Passage is associated with various time frames represented by the ages of the Body, they are not specifically tied to those time frames. Different cultures and different societies and different Body Types will affect how the process of these Passages go. For certain cultures where life spans are only 20 years, vs other cultures where a lifespan may be 100 years, one can see how the Monads may play out differently. Those cultures and societies where life is more condensed tend to attract those who are working through Infant, Baby, and Young Levels, whereas Late Young, Mature and Older Souls tend toward cultures, societies, and bodies that emphasize length of life. We include in these differentiations the reference to “society” because social constructs, even within the same culture, may emphasize life at different paces, and thus have different time frames relative to the Passages.
       
      That being said, in general: Birth is obviously at Birth, where Autonomy is usually relative to the individual taking his or her first steps, and Independence is relative to an individual separating his or her identity and primary resources from the influences of his or her caretakers (parents); Manifestation is relative to an individual returning to a sense of innocence and personal meaning about the self and life; Recreation is relative to an individual freeing himself or herself from the momentum of “purpose” and shifts into an emphasis on “enjoying life,” or re-creating it; Comprehension is relative to the onset of whatever will end the life, and the individual’s ability to come to terms with his or her mortality; and Death, of course, is exiting the Physical Plane.
       
      Many of our students presume that Birth and Death are Internal Monads that are a given, but that is not accurate. The successful completion of Birth is indicated by “staying alive.” For the most part, this is marked by good health. If a body dies before the age of 3, it did not successfully complete the Birth Monad. The successful completion of Death is indicated by the impact one’s death has on those who remain physical. If those who remain are left devastated, deeply attached, and profoundly tied to the physical version of oneself, then one has not successfully “died.” The death, itself, is only the beginning, and the stages involved are done post-death, by working with those still incarnated in processing their grief.
       
      Completing all 7 Rites of Passage within a single lifetime takes practice, effort, and commitment to an extent that is often not available or an inclination of every Personality, so an Essence will remain within a single Level of Soul Age as long as it takes. Within a lifetime where the Personality does not complete an early Rite of Passage, such as, say, the 3rd Internal Monad of Independence, it means that this person has left that Internal Monad paused in the Negative Pole, and every Internal Monad attempted beyond that will be locked in the Negative Pole, as well. Using the baskets of oranges as an analogy, it would mean that no matter how hard that Personality tries to fill baskets 4, 5, and 6, they will only be able to fill them to the extent that basket 3 is filled. In cases such as this, which are not uncommon, it is possible to “go back” and fill the unfilled basket, or to complete the 3rd Internal Monad, freeing up the capacity to complete the next. This would mean, even if the Personality is in her 50s, that she can work through her issues related to Independence, self-reliance, and her relationships with Authority, as a means to then work on her 4th Internal Monad, and so on. In short, it is a valid and relevant statement that “it is never too late to have a happy childhood,” as an example for completing incomplete Passages.
       
      We wish to point out here that while our teaching can be understood and made useful at any age, it is not until the successful completion of the 4th Internal Monad that the full extent of its application can be comprehended. This is why you see so few fellow students among you, or even that you see so few interested in our teaching, in general; it is simply not very interesting or truly applicable to those who “do not know themselves.” This is not a judgment, but a matter of fact. For this teaching to have its full effect, one must be awake, and most who have not completed the 4th Internal Monad are still in some degree, if not completely, asleep. By “asleep” and “awake,” we simply mean the spectrum between self-absorption and self-awareness. Self-absorption, or being asleep, is marked by a preoccupation with the self, such as through defensiveness, self-indulgence, presentation, brooding, consuming, etc. And self-awareness, or being awake, is marked by, for example, valued sensitivity, right intuition, concentric compassion, enthusiastic curiosity, a kind presence, patient resonance to others, and no defenses or shields. Those are examples, but there are others, of course.
       
      We have covered Birth and Death in terms of successful or unsuccessful completion, and we will now quickly describe the other 5 Internal Monads in terms of the same.
       
      The 2nd Rite of Passage, which is Autonomy and is initiated by the capacity to walk on one’s own, is often tied to one’s sense of Confidence. To the degree that one is Confident is the degree to which this Internal Monad was completed. When we speak of “confidence” here, we are not speaking in terms of your being able to speak well in front of a crowd, but in terms how willing one is in trying anything at all that is unfamiliar. This is not a matter of trying what one has no interest in trying, but in anything unfamiliar to you that you may have even the slightest interest in trying. This would extend into even those areas one must do for oneself because it is known that it is Good Work, even when one does not want to do them. For instance, going to an interview for a job that is important to you, even as you hate the interview process. A successful 2nd Internal Monad would mean that you do it anyway, even as you acknowledge the discomfort. That is Confidence in this context. An unsuccessful completion of a 2nd Internal Monad is often marked by classic Co-dependence, the inability to do much of anything without a reference to someone else. It is the inability to walk on one’s own. We do not refer to those who have physical disabilities, but anyone, regardless of mobility.
       
      The 3rd Rite of Passage, which is Independence, is initiated by the process of separation of identity from one’s caretakers, and establishing the self as its own authority. The successful completion of the 3rd Internal Monad is marked by the capacity to provide for oneself. Providing for oneself does not mean isolating oneself as the only resource, but would include knowing when to ask for help, and how to receive that. The unsuccessful completion of this Internal Monad is marked by either having constant combat with anyone suggesting Authority, and/or resigning from the responsibility of caring for oneself.
       
      The 4th Internal Monad, or Rite of Passage, which is Manifestation, is initiated by one’s mid-life assessment as a means to determine the meaning of the life lived so far, and then calibrating the life to an updated course or path so that Essence may manifest. Part of that process and assessment means looking into the past as far back as childhood, and in that looking, finding all of the things that you determined have defined you, made you happy, that have fulfilled you as a child or teen, and then nurturing that same innocence in your life as an adult. A successful completion means truly liking who you are, and embracing the playfulness of your life as you move deeper into it as an embodiment of your Essence, or core Being. An incompleted 4th Internal Monad is often marked by an attempt to replicate the life that was once seen as so innocent, locking the person into a state that desperately seeks meaning, importance, and purpose.
       
      The 5th Internal Monad of Recreation is marked by a realization of relief from the need for purpose, meaning, and importance, but finds the emphasis being upon those little things that make the life worth living (on your terms). The life is literally “re-created” in a way that is a new paradigm, free from the burdens of navigation and direction, but entirely embracing of wandering, coasting, and “enjoying the view,” so to speak. The successful completion would often show up as a new enthusiasm for a layer of life that was once cluttered and clouded by over-eagerness and over-anticipation. There is a softness to the life in a way that was never experienced before, and a true joy in many things that would otherwise be dismissed. An incompleted 5th Rite of Passage might show up as bitterness, regret, anger, resentment, and disgust, sometimes concluding that life has no meaning or point, and therefore condemning anyone or anything to pointlessness and meaninglessness.
       
      And finally, the 6th Rite of Passage, Comprehension, is marked by the onset of that which will be the cause of death. This is the only Rite of Passage that can most-often be processed in a matter of seconds. A successful completion would show up as a surrender to the reality of mortality, and a full review of the life in a way that brings comprehension to the fact that one has lived and one is now dying. This can happen in a car crash, or in a long-term illness, etc. Time takes on a completely new dimension in this Passage. The incomplete Internal Monad here would show up as anything representing a rejection of mortality, ranging between resignation, apathy, to delusion, dementia, and denial. In instances such as a car crash, the individual may actually “re-live” the entire life in new ways that account for corrections of betrayals, missed opportunities, etc. before actually exiting. That experience can be a means of review, or as a means of denial.
       
      We will conclude here, then, in speaking about the 7 Internal Monads, and open the floor to the first 5 questions, due to time constraints.
       
      ****QUEUE IS OPEN**** We will respond to further questions after this transcript is posted in your “TLE FORUMS.”
       
      [Geraldine] Michael. I still don’t understand how the “two lifetimes in one” works. If a Personality has to go through all 6 IMs in the same incarnation in order to reach the 7th — How does one get all six of those “oranges” in the basket by age 40 in order to do an early 7th? (such as AnnH). Or my son-in-law Brian Fisher who went through this by age 30. Especially since neither one would have been considered “all in positive poles” at those ages. How would one work with “those still incarnated in processing their grief,” if there is no grief? Would one’s concurrents processing IMs help since we all started our incarnations at the same Soul Level?
       
      [MEntity]
      We did not elaborate fully into the “two lifetimes in one”, or the transiting of Soul Levels within a lifetime, because we had elaborated on this in other transcripts. However, we will try to clarify again here. If an Essence has 5 or more baskets full, so to speak, upon creating a new Personality, then that Personality is only tasked with the potential to fill those remaining baskets. However, to get to those baskets 5, 6, and 7, for example, the body and Personality must still fill baskets 1 through 4 in its own way in order to even get to the 5th basket. After baskets 1-4 have been filled multiple times by multiple Personalities over multiple lifetimes, then each subsequent lifetime/Personality has a potentially easier time fulfilling those same baskets.
       
      Although there are physical counterparts to each Monad, which is often associated with age time frames, we have also pointed out that they are not tied to those age time frames. Beyond the factors of culture and society as influences, we can also say that one’s PSYCHOLOGICAL process is just as physical a counterpart as one’s physical aging. Therefore, when one is transiting a Level within a lifetime, that Personality can quickly (by age standards) be Born, Walk, Gain Independence, Manifest Essence, and then begin the Recreation process, all by the end of one’s teen age years. This is because while there are certain physical cues that are tied to the Passages, there are also Psychological cues, and these are just as, if not more, vital than the more obvious Physical cues. This means that rather than having a physical retirement/recreation due to age, it happens due to psyche, and rather than physically dying due to accident, illness, or suicide, there is a psychological “death” that then moves through a “birthing” process. Those who transit a Level within a lifetime are now throwing off the usual cues that one can more obviously see in terms of one “growing up,” so these Personalities can often seem more complicated, difficult, and lacking significant maturing processes that another person might show. They do not necessarily appear to be any wiser or more together than any other, and more often, actually, appear not to be particularly wise, and often quite scattered. This is because the psyche is not only developing at a different pace from the body, but by the time the body is older, then the psyche is reborn again in a way that is quite disorienting. This complex process is why this kind of transition is rare, except in Older Souls. Once the fragment in transition has filled the 7 baskets, then the life is marked with a new set of baskets to begin filling, which are rarely ever filled beyond the 4th basket in those kinds of lifetimes.
       
      [Maureen] What “happens” in between IMs – for example: Having successfully completed the 4th IM – one could whiz into the 5th or take a decade – If it takes a decade is it like being on a plateau or is it a mix between the 2 IMs ??
       
      [MEntity] While one is “in” a Passage, there is a definite sense that there is living to do. When one is “between” Passages, there is a definite sense that there is work to do. We are using the term “living” here to describe the experience of submersion into the life that often feels like being underwater, then coming up for air, over and over. We use the term “work” here to describe the experience of finally being on land and moving your way over territories of relevance and meaning. For instance, during the 3rd Internal Monad, there may be waves of great angst, rebellion, and constant inner turmoil, mixed with homesickness, deep gratitude, and a sense of self emerging as one breaks away from the influences of parents. Upon completion of that Monad, then the business of income, maintaining an apartment, paying bills, etc., then comes into focus. It might be more appealing to describe the differences between being In and Between Monads as “living” and “learning,” as what was lived through the Passage is now put into practice before the next Passage.
       
      [Oscar] Hello Michael. Could you please elaborate a little about how exactly Body Type can affect the process?
       
      [MEntity] Active Body Types, such as Saturnine, Mercurial, Martial, and Solar tend to process Internal Monads “faster” than the Passive Body Types of Lunar, Jovial, and Venusian. The Active/Positive Body Types of Saturn and Solar being the “fastest” while the Passive/Negative of Lunar being the “slowest.” We speak of these in terms of “pure” Body Types, so it is wise to keep in mind that there are no “pure” Body Types, all having a mix of other energies, and influences. The reason for their “speed” of processing a Passage is relative to the Primary Glandular System that regulates experiences for that Body. For instance, the Anterior Pituitary and the Thymus tend to help the body process experiences far more “quickly” than that of the Pancreatic system. This is because the Anterior Pituitary, for instance, is a stimulus for all other glandular systems, and the Thymus regulates the overall health/immunity of all systems, so their being the primary influence is powerful in these Passages. Whereas the Pancreas is insular in its processes, even though they do ultimately affect the entire system. It is that insularity of the process of consumption and production of fuel that contributes to the slower processing of experiences for the body.
       
      [Karine] How can you “predict” when someone will enter a monad? For example, you told me that you think I will begin my 4th internal monad near the end of 2012. Do Essences plan in advance during the course of a life when a personality will enter the next monad?
       
      [MEntity] We can only see the same things that you can see in terms of Passages, though we may be able to see it more clearly. So when we can see a time frame for completion of a Monad, using the analogy of the baskets, we are basing this on how full the basket is, and the pace at which you have been filling it. We can then extrapolate from there. The same could be said for those that are slated to begin. We can look at the previous Passage and the factors that went into entering it, filling the basket, and exiting it, and how much time was spent between other Passages, proportionally speaking. That being said, yes, Essence will anticipate a time frame that “looks good” for entering a Passage, and we can see those notes, if they are there. In the end, whether we use calculations, or the notes in your records from Essence, it will always be the Personality that decides whether and when to enter into a Passage. So we may be very far off in our information in the end.
       
      [Bobby] In your presentation of the 7th IM, there seems to be far more to it than I realized. For instance, I didn’t realize that to transit it in the positive pole, if those left behind grieved terribly over your passing it could keep you from completing it in the positive. I had an aunt who lost a son and never seemed to get over it. Would that be an appropriate example of him finishing his 7th IM in the negative pole? Joey Williams was his name by the way, if that helps.

      It is not so much in the depth of the grieving, but in the length of time in grieving, and yes, to the extent that one has not helped to prepare loved ones and friends for one’s death, and to the extent that one lacks the ability to comfort those “left behind,” then the 7th Internal Monad is not completed. There will always be at least one lifetime/Personality who dies within a Level in a way that those who remain physical will fully grasp that that Personality had a full life, and that death was embraced without surprise or regret or terror.
       
      Because death is so difficult for even the oldest of souls to experience, it takes only one lifetime for this to happen as a means for the Level to be transitioned. And if one ponders the 7 Passages for a moment, it may become more obvious that one who has moved through each in a Positive Pole, may have generated a life and network of relationships that more easily comes to terms with that death. That is not to say that even the most successful of 7th Internal Monads would leave no one grieving. Grief is natural and important, and is a process of accepting a profound truth that replaces a previous truth. In the case of the fragment you mentioned as an example, we think that fragment is still working on completing that Monad, and remains in the process of support for the one who is grieving. Some fragments choose to remain in that process “as long as it takes.”
       
      We will conclude here. Good evening to each of you.

      "Seven Emotions"
      March 23, 2014
      (3 Hour Session)
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      [MEntity]
      We understand the topic of focus is that of the Emotions.
       
      First, as you explore the concept of Emotions, we will point out that "feelings" and Emotions are not, technically, the same things. They are so interconnected that they are often considered the same thing, but for the sake of the topic today, it will be helpful to understand that the "feeling" aspect is a bodily reaction/response to the energy that is Emotion.
       
      Emotions are more like a surge of energy, a kind of electricity, if you will, and your processing of that is what you call "feelings."
       
      All Emotions originate from the Emotional Center.
       
      These are then distributed, or processed, through the Parts of that Center, which funnels the energy into the other Centers relative to the Part.
       
      So, for example, if an Emotion is a Moving Part Emotion, it still originates from the Emotional Center, is processed by the Moving Part, and directed toward the Moving Center then.
       
      We will return to this circuitry a bit later.
       
      All Emotions Are Personal -- Only About Oneself
       
      Because all Emotions are of the Emotional Center, this means they are always related to ORDINAL INSPIRATION. This means that all Emotions are personal, and they are either a result of PROJECTION or REFLECTION.
       
      Emotions are personal (ordinal) in that they only ever tell you about YOU.
       
      Emotions never tell you anything about anyone other than yourself. Ever.
       
      It is an information circuitry that is entirely unique to you, about you, and is all about your collection of experiences, organized in layers of time, and that are then used to measure against your current experiences. All of this is a form of navigation.
       
      This is all true whether one is Emotionally-Centered, or not.
       
      When one is Emotionally-Centered, it simply means this form of navigation is relied upon far more than the other two forms (Intellectual and Moving).
       
      All fragments will have all three forms inherent to the incarnation, of course
       
      No matter how provoked, your Emotions are informing you about you; not the other person or even the event.
       
      When we say that they are "informing you about you, we mean that they are sifting through your collection of experiences over time and comparing the current experience to a past one for reference. If you have a painful experience in your records, a current experience might trigger that painful association and the current experience will be regarded as painful, even if it may not be painful.
       
      Because Emotions are Inspirational, they are LOADED with POTENTIAL. They are not reality. They only speak to the potential of a reality. So, for instance, this reference to a painful experience from the past is only meant to suggest that the current experience MIGHT BE painful, too. It is not meant to tell you that your current experience IS painful.
       
      And therein lies the difference between PROJECTION and REFLECTION.
       
      Projection is a reactionary processing of Emotions that presume that what is "felt" is the conclusive truth. If you feel it, it must be true. That is that. This is Projection.
       
      This is why we continue to remind our students that Emotions are not the truth.
       
      In a sense, Emotions are ALWAYS about the PAST.
       
      So the truth that you "feel" is about the past, not the present or the future.
       
      This is not a bad thing or a good thing, it is simply how Emotion functions.
       
      Even the best of how you feel is a product of the past.
       
      For example: you may find that the watching of the setting Sun is one that brings joy. But this is because it is not your first sunset. First sunsets for many fragments (in those early lifetimes) was terrifying. The world was plunged into darkness and new creatures emerged in that darkness, and nothing was ever the same again. Until the morning, of course. But then it would happen again. This was terrifying.
       
      Eventually, enough experience with sunsets brings Trust, and it is known that the Sun has not died, and it will rise again in the morning.
       
      To be clear, this Trust still cannot speak to the TRUTH. It can only speak to experience. MORE THAN LIKELY the sun will rise, and MORE THAN LIKELY the sun has not died, but there may very well come a night that never ends.
       
      As you can see, Trust then becomes an important Emotion for navigating because one cannot constantly fight and fear a sunset.
       
      If there comes a day when the sun does not rise, you will deal with that. Until then, you live as if the sun will rise again, because you Trust that it will, and you Trust that it will because you have enough experience to do so.
       
      This is no different in processing when it comes to relationships.
       
      It is fair to be wary of new relationships if one has experienced pain in one or more. Your Emotions are telling you to be careful, and that another round of relating COULD result in another round of pain. But, remember, Emotions are not the truth. They are only referencing your experience, and your experience, while your own, is not a constant. You lived in terror for years, afraid that the sun may not rise again. That fear and pain and terror was real. It is fair to be wary as the night falls again.
       
      But your fear, pain, and terror are not a constant, because you continue to gather experiences.
       
      And as your days are found to be filled over and over again, despite the terrors that the night will come, you begin to note this and grow from it, and face each day and night with Trust.
       
      The same is true of your relationships.
       
      The fear and pain and terror of your losses when a relationship ends or departs from expectations can make the next relationship seem a breeding ground for more terror, fear, and pain. But a new relationship is like a new day. IT WILL END. AND YOU WILL NOT.
       
      And just like the passing of days, you will find that relationships, like your days and nights, are uniquely filled with what you put into them, and are not defined by their beginning and "end."
       
      This is REFLECTION, then.
       
      PROJECTION is when you impose your past on an experience, relationship, or event. REFLECTION is when you learn from your past, but allow the greatest potential of the present or future.
       
      What we have shared, so far, is how Emotions function, how they are processed, what they are for, and what they mean.
       
      Though there many words to describe Emotions and how one feels, all Emotions can be traced back to one of seven basic Emotions, or as a combination of two or more of these basic Emotions.
       
      Those SEVEN BASIC EMOTIONS are:
       
      TRUST, DISGUST, ANTICIPATION, SADNESS, JOY, ANGER, SURPRISE.
       
      Trust is of the Instinctive Part.
      Anticipation is of the Higher Emotional Part.
      Joy is of the Higher Intellectual Part.
      Surprise is of the Higher Moving Part.
      Disgust is of the Emotional Part.
      Sadness is of the Intellectual Part.
      Anger is of the Moving Part.
       
      FEAR is not an Emotion, technically, anymore than Truth is or Love or Energy, in any technical sense.
       
      Many "emotions" that are referenced by other terms are combinations of the above, either in negative or in positive pole combinations.
       
      None of these Emotions are bad or good, but all can be experienced in beneficial or harmful ways.
       
      QUESTIONS
       
      Before we break down these Emotions into polarities, we will open the floor to any questions relative to what we have shared so far.
       
      [DianeHB] What IS Fear, if not an emotion?
       
      [MEntity]
      Fear is a "feeling," a secondary response or reaction to the processes of Emotions of Anger and Surprise.
       
      Fear, then, could be said to be the body's reaction of protection against negative experiences relative to Anger and Surprise.
       
      Keep in mind that the entire concept of Fear is one that is far more insidious and pervasive than this simplified version we speak of. We are speaking of Fear in terms of Emotions here, but we may speak of fear in larger terms in other discussions.
       
      But for the point of discussion regarding Emotion, Fear is often that bodily reaction to protections against all that is related to negative experiences of Anger and Surprise.
       
      In broader terms, it could be said that Fear is also the bodily response to all of these Emotions in their negative poles.
       
      [Juni] I am wondering about the difference between feelings/emotions and intuition. If feelings/emotions only ever tell you about oneself, how do you distinguish that from a "feeling" about another?
       
      [MEntity]
      Intuition is different from Emotions. Again, these are often presumed to be the same things, which is why many who use "intuition" are merely guided by a maze of emotions, and not insights.
       
      This is not a bad thing in the end, because when "intuition" is thought to be a process of navigating Emotionally, it can still be helpful, since Emotions always lead one back to the self. This can be just as important as guiding one outwardly.
       
      However, to more directly respond to your question, one's "feelings" about another person can still be useful, even if those feelings or Emotions are informing one about the self. It simply means that one has owned the feeling as one's own, and not as having originated from another person.
       
      If a person "makes you feel good," it is informing you as to how you feel about that person, but it is not necessarily how anyone else might feel about that person. And it only tells you how you feel about that person RIGHT NOW, not about how you will feel about that person in the future. All of this speaks to your past as a reference, too.
       
      If you meet someone and presume that your good feelings are the truth about that person, you have immediately cut yourself out of the picture as a source of those good feelings. This is often the case when "falling in love."
       
      Presuming that these Emotions and feelings are sourced by someone else means that there will likely come a day that the other is then blamed for less pleasant feelings.
       
      This becomes problematic for relating to someone because then the emphasis shifts away from how you contribute to your range of emotions and feelings, and the emphasis shifts toward how to get the other person to make you feel the way you had expected to feel.
       
      So there is no real differentiation here. Your feelings about a person are your own, and are not the truth about another person.
       
      There is a big difference between "I feel good" and "You make me feel good."
       
      Intuition, however, is another topic, and it is a synthesis of input from all of your senses so that comprehension can be gained.
       
      [ViP1]
      Hi Michael. I've read in psychology articles that insufficient contact or interaction (as an infant) with one's mother (or perhaps both parents) in the form of touch, and responses to facial and other cues, can inhibit peoples' abilities to recognize and describe their emotions (or perhaps, feelings?)
       
      And hence, leading to difficulties in dealing with them (emotions - or perhaps feelings, I'm not sure which based on your earlier distinction between them. Probably feelings.)
       
      Would you say that there is validity to this, and if so, if someone has had this experience in early life, how the processing circuitry is affected (and if possible, tips on how to rectify it, ie, recognize and process emotions effectively?)
       
      [MEntity]
      Any issues with care taking during the first 7 years can affect the Instinctive Part and, therefore, affect one's TRUST. Trust is reset in every lifetime, but how one is handled, treated, nurtured, born, etc. can skew that function so that it has some range of challenges.
       
      All Emotions are reset in every lifetime.
       
      But as one progresses through the Internal Monads, these Emotions are explored in a way that locks them into Projection or frees them into Reflection.
       
      These are not tied to the Internal Monads in a way that leaves an Internal Monad unfinished if the Emotion is not freed, but there do tend to be periods of the life where the various Emotions are emphasized in exploration.
       
      For example, Trust is explored and emphasized between the 1st and the 2nd Internal Monad.
       
      The 1st and 2nd Internal Monads can be successfully closed, even if Trust is not freed, but there is a rather high correlation to the level of trust vs distrust that one has in relation to whether one has completed those Internal Monads. In other words, there does TEND to be a much higher level of distrust among those who have not successfully closed their 2nd Internal Monad.
       
      DISGUST is explored and emphasized from the 2nd Internal Monad all the way through the 3rd Internal Monad.
       
      This is why you will find your toddlers to teens emphasizing this in ways that can be repellent and difficult.
       
      ANTICIPATION is explored during these, as well.
       
      Whereas SADNESS and JOY are explored and emphasized during the 4th Internal Monad.
       
      While ANGER and SURPRISE are explored and emphasized during the 5th Internal Monad.
       
      This is not to say that these Emotions do not exist as emphasis at any other time. We did not say that, nor did we imply that. But it is to say that those stages tend to be when those particular Emotions come to be truly resolved and freed, or locked into a more restricted state.
       
      Speak to a fragment who is successfully navigating the 5th Internal Monad and you will speak to someone who has all but lost the charge of Anger as a form of helplessness, and has freed it to become a form of motivation.
       
      Emotions as Polarities
       
      This may be a good segue into these Emotions as polarities.
       
      Think of the poles below as describing the Emotion as restricted or freed, and therefore more subject to Projection vs Reflection.
       
      TRUST as restricted might be FOOLISH/DISTRUST, and freed as CONFIDENCE/AWARENESS
      DISGUST as restricted might be CAUSTIC/LOATHSOME and freed as HUMOROUS/PREFERENCE
       
      Keep in mind that our polarities here are not necessarily emotions. These are merely adjectives to help understand the spectrum of that particular Emotion.
       
      SADNESS is restricted as PATHETIC/SELF-PITY and freed as GRIEF/HONESTY.
      ANGER is restricted as DEPRESSION/BLAME, and freed as MOTIVATION/PURPOSE.
      ANTICIPATION is restricted as AGITATION/DISDAIN, and freed as ENTHUSIASM/CONSIDERATION.
       
      [ViP1] Michael, just to confirm, you are giving negative poles first, then positive, as usual (eg, ENTHUSIASM: -ve, /CONSIDERATION: +ve?)
       
      [MEntity]
      What we are sharing with the two terms for each pole is the branching that the restriction or freeing can show up as. For instance, some restrictive Trust shows up much more like Foolishness or blind faith than as Distrust.
       
      But Foolishness and Distrust are fair ranges to include how the Freed end would show up.
       
      JOY is restricted as OBNOXIOUS/SELF-INDULGENT, and freed as INCLUSIVE/INVITING
      SURPRISE is restricted as RESISTANCE/DISREGARD, and freed as ADAPTIVE/PLAYFUL.
       
      To bring further correlation, it could be said that these Emotions are more inherently explored and emphasized in various Essence Roles, as well, though this is certainly in no strict sense of delineation.
       
      Scholars - Trust; Servers - Disgust; Artisans - Sadness; Warriors - Anger; Priests - Anticipation; Sages - Joy; Kings - Surprise.
       
      These inherent Emotions might be said to be a long-term spectrum for each Role to truly comprehend from its worst to its best.
       
      Furthermore, one COULD look at one's overleaves and "translate" his or her profile to show how the Personality might be emphasizing certain Emotions as exploration and emphasis.
       
      For example, if one has a greater emphasis down the Moving Axis, one might be exploring the wide range of Anger and how this is both debilitating and motivating.
       
      QUESTIONS
       
      We will open the floor for 2 or 3 final questions. We think we have covered a good amount on the subject of Emotions tonight, and these can be further explored in other exchanges with us.
       
      [Tyrant] Do each of the emotion types when blocked or repressed (or stuck in negative poles) have certain types of illness/ailments to them that manifest/what are they? as in, are there consistent patterns in types of ailments
       
      [MEntity]
      Yes, there can be. However, by the time most ailments are showing Physical symptoms, it is often a mix of two or more Emotions that have remained restricted. We can delineate these in another exchange.
       
      We would, first, want to share how illnesses/ailments can be broken down into 7, before correlating.
       
      If there are no more questions, we will conclude here for today.
       
      Good day to each of you

      Atteindre votre But

      Traduction d’un atelier avec l’Entité Michael (EM) le 15 novembre 2014

      Canal : Troy Tolley

       

      Source anglaise : https://our.truthloveenergy.com/topic/193-omw-nov-15-2014-reaching-your-goal/?tab=comments#comment-365. Texte adapté du livre anglais « The Book of the Books », 2018. 

       

      Entité Michael (EM) :

      Bonjour à chacun de vous. Nous sommes ici, maintenant. Nous pouvons commencer.

       

      Aujourd’hui, nous sommes invités à parler des Buts, en mettant l’emphase sur comment chacun de vous, individuellement, remplissez votre But.

       

      Gardez à l’esprit que le But est précisément cela. C’est un But. Cependant, comme pour de nombreux buts, la cible visée continue toujours d’évoluer de façon exponentielle tant que l’objectif demeure. Il n’y a jamais de ligne d’arrivée pour un but conceptuel.

       

      Il y a des buts tangibles et des buts conceptuels.

       

      Les buts tangibles sont toujours alimentés par des buts conceptuels, et les buts conceptuels sont toujours atteints à travers des buts tangibles.

       

      Notre système met l’accent sur le But Conceptuel, ou But abstrait, et ressemble plus à un état à atteindre avec une certaine satisfaction, au cours d’une vie.

       

      Par exemple, le But de la Croissance ne sera jamais atteint au cours d’une vie, sauf en termes de comment l’individu dont la Croissance est le But trouve ce cheminement satisfaisant.

       

      Bien que le But ne décrive jamais la Personnalité, il est inhérent à la biologie d’une Personnalité parce qu’il fait partie de ses Attributs.

       

      La raison pour laquelle le But ne décrit jamais la Personnalité c'est parce qu’il est un But. Il n’est pas déjà réalisé. Il n’est pas déjà un état inhérent à cet individu.

       

      Cependant la motivation est inhérente, ce qui signifie qu’en comprenant son But, on peut comprendre presque tous les aspects de sa vie et pourquoi ils sont générés comme des expériences.

       

      Pour chaque But, il y a ce que nous pourrions appeler les 7 « versions » ou états qui décrivent où l’on se situe dans ce qu’on vise pour ce But.

       

      Ces 7 versions ne sont pas nécessairement linéaires et sont les mêmes à travers les vies, les Âges de l’Âme, les Niveaux et les Personnalités. En d’autres termes, une Âme Nourrisson dans sa première vie pourrait rencontrer toutes ces versions d’un But.

       

      On ne peut pas rejeter le But. On ne peut qu’atteindre ses différents états, en visant à partir des pôles positif ou négatif.

       

      Donc, quelqu’un en Acceptation travaille TOUJOURS sur l’Acceptation.

       

      Quel que soit votre But, voici les 7 versions (états) :

       

      PAR DÉFAUT — Tendances/Résistances

       

      C’est celle où penser, remarquer ou ressentir à propos de son BUT demande le moins. C’est le Par Défaut.

       

      Les expériences s’accumulent et l’Essence les trie plus tard.

       

      Par défaut, il y a des tendances générées dans la vie à cause du But, et ces tendances peuvent ou non être remarquées, mais parfois on y oppose de la résistance.

       

      Quand il y a de la résistance, il y a de la douleur.

       

      La vie « semble » amener des tendances vers l’Acceptation, la Croissance, le Flux, etc. et on les navigue ou on les combat.

       

      Quand on fait l’expérience de la vie comme un état constant de douleur pour le corps, c’est que le But fonctionne probablement dans l’état Par Défaut.

       

      C’est le moyen de navigation le moins conscient.

       

      Ce n’est pas une « mauvaise » chose, mais une réalité du spectre de notre conscience.

       

      DÉCISIONS — Direction/Déni

       

      La prochaine version d’un But commence à inclure une conscience plus attentive à la façon de naviguer avec les tendances Par Défaut. Cela se fait par des DÉCISIONS. On commence à remarquer que l’on peut décider à partir de ces tendances. C’est là que l’on commence à apprendre à dire non à une direction. Tous les fragments apprennent à dire non avant d’apprendre à dire oui.

       

      Ce n’est pas la même chose que le Choix. Nous reviendrons plus tard sur le concept de Choix.

       

      Les Décisions pavent la voie aux Choix.

       

      Donc du côté positif, on apprend à dire non de façon à inclure plus de conscience à sa direction, mais certains peuvent tomber dans la tendance à dire non à tout, niant complètement leurs tendances dans la vie.

       

      Quand on constate qu’on est dans un état constant de NON qui empêche les expériences, alors on est probablement dans cette version de notre But.

       

      DIFFÉRENCE — Prévoyance/Apathie

       

      C’est quand on commence à remarquer les tendances dans notre vie d’une manière qui nous donne le sentiment de pouvoir faire une différence dans ces tendances. Il ne s’agit pas seulement d’arrêter une direction, mais de la changer.

       

      Ceci permet d’avoir une vision de l’avenir, de planifier, de considérer les conséquences. Quand les Décisions donnent l’impression que l’on regarde dans des directions où il y a des embranchements sur notre chemin, la DIFFÉRENCE commence à créer ces embranchements.

       

      Il s’agit de la première version du But où l’on commence à se sentir responsable du chemin et de l’état du But.

       

      Ceci peut être un peu écrasant et la Personnalité peut se dégager de cette responsabilité en tombant dans l’Apathie.

       

      C’est là que l’on présume que « ce qui a à arriver, va arriver » ou que « c’est la volonté de Dieu » ou en termes plus actuels de « laisser cela à l’univers ».

       

      Ce sont des formes d’Apathie.

       

      Elles ne ressemblent pas toujours à ça, parce que les mots peuvent sembler poétiques ou savants, mais ils sont un désengagement de notre responsabilité à créer.

       

      EFFORT — Volonté/Limbes

       

      Il s’agit de la version du But où les tendances ralentissent énormément sans la participation consciente de la Personnalité.

       

      Les expériences ne viennent pas, les tendances sont répétitives, familières et il y a très peu de « nouvelles » choses qui font leur apparition dans notre vie.

       

      Pour la première fois, le But requiert votre participation pour la génération d’expériences.

       

      Ceci signifie que l’on doit Vouloir faire l’Effort, pour générer activement des expériences. Beaucoup trouvent cela décourageant et tomberont dans des tendances familières qui apportent très peu à leur vie en termes d’expériences, et leur vie tombe alors dans les Limbes.

       

      PARTAGE — Intimité/Conflit

       

      Il s’agit de la première des versions du But où l’on commence à graviter, intentionnellement ou non, vers ceux qui partagent le même But.

       

      Trouver un terrain d’entente dans des expériences aide à apporter de l’Intimité. Le But devient alors une sorte de terrain de jeu partagé par deux ou plusieurs personnes.

       

      Cependant, cela peut également venir avec un grand investissement dans son But de sorte que l’on perd la capacité de se lier avec ceux qui ont un But différent, ou même avec ceux qui n’abordent pas notre But de la même manière.

       

      Cela mène alors au conflit.

       

      Certains des plus grands conflits peuvent survenir parmi ceux qui partagent le même But.

       

      DÉFI — Enthousiasme/Frustration

       

      C’est la première fois que votre But commence à être véritablement mis à l’épreuve par des forces extérieures.

       

      Vous maîtrisez probablement votre But à ce stade, connaissez ses tendances, êtes prêts, partagez, etc., mais « tout » semble se mettre en travers.

       

      C’est la première fois qu’il n’est pas « facile » d’obtenir un certain sentiment d’accomplissement de votre But.

       

      Ce n’est plus seulement une tendance par défaut qui fait obstacle à votre But, mais c’est une tendance qui semble vous faire dérailler de tout sens de direction relié à la réalisation de votre But.

       

      Du côté positif, ce sont l’optimisme et l’enthousiasme qui vous gardent ciblé sur le But. Les Obstacles sont abordés comme un moyen d’atteindre un nouveau niveau du But, et non comme un moyen de le faire dérailler.

       

      Du côté négatif, la frustration peut venir, on peut se sentir vaincu, déprimé, en colère et supposer que rien de ce qu’on fait ne peut nous aider.

       

      Plutôt que de négocier votre chemin et de faire appel à la créativité, vous continuez à faire les mêmes choses encore et encore tout en vous attendant à des expériences/résultats différents.

       

      CHOIX — Création/Indulgence

       

      Maintenant, votre But est dans un état de Choix. Vous savez que vos décisions pavent la voie à vos choix, vous assumez vos choix qui créent vos expériences et vous utilisez la créativité pour tous les obstacles, difficultés, défis, etc.

       

      L’indulgence est une forme passive de Choix en ce sens que l’on reconnaît que l’on n’a peut-être pas le choix en tout temps, et on le sait, et on est d’accord avec ça, car le choix est actif là où il peut être.

       

      L’indulgence peut tomber dans des états de paresse, mais la conscience est tellement présente à ce stade que, même si la paresse n’est pas préférée, elle est assumée comme un choix.

       

      Résumé

       

      S’il est vrai que ces versions/états ne sont pas séquentielles, elles se construisent les unes sur les autres; toutefois l’on peut être dans n’importe laquelle de ces versions à tout moment. Une fois que vous atteignez le CHOIX, cela ne signifie pas que vous ne retomberez pas, par exemple, dans le Par Défaut. En effet, la Personnalité est réinitialisée à chaque vie. C’est du nouveau. Ce n’est pas une progression. La Personnalité est conçue à partir de la progression de l’Essence, et plus la Personnalité est consciente, plus l’Essence est impliquée dans sa vie, donc il y a évolution, mais la Personnalité peut « revenir en arrière », contrairement à l’Essence.

       

      Il est difficile de revenir en arrière, même pour la Personnalité, mais cela peut arriver et cela se produit.

       

      Souvent.

       

      Plus l’Âme est âgée, plus cela devient difficile.

       

      Nous allons maintenant ouvrir la file d’attente pour vos questions concernant ce que nous avons partagé jusqu’à présent, et demander à chacun de vous de partager où vous pensez être dans votre propre version de votre But.

       

      LA FILE D’ATTENTE EST MAINTENANT OUVERTE

       

      Janet : À un moment donné, vous m’avez dit que 12 Décisions peuvent conduire à un Choix qui crée un embranchement ou un moment pivot dans la vie. Y a-t-il un lien entre ces états et cette corrélation avec le nombre 12? Et je pense que j’ai atteint au moins le PARTAGE mais le CHOIX semble correspondre aussi.

       

      EM : Janet, les 12 Décisions qui mènent à un Choix décrivent comment le processus du choix est généré dans n’importe quel aspect de la vie. Les versions du But décrivent comment on progresse dans la capacité de choisir par rapport au But : d’une approche passive ou moins consciente du But à une approche plus active ou consciente.

       

      En d’autres termes, les 12 décisions du choix seront toujours en vigueur, avec ou sans conscience ou éveil actif.

       

      Les versions du But décrivent donc une sorte de processus d’appropriation des décisions et des choix relatifs au But/aux expériences.

       

      GeraldineB : Comme je vis avec une détérioration articulaire, de l’arthrose, qui semble également héréditaire, je ne vois pas la corrélation entre votre énoncé « Quand on fait l’expérience de la vie comme un état constant de souffrance pour le corps, c’est que le But fonctionne probablement dans un état Par Défaut », et mon état actuel dans l’utilisation de la Discrimination.

       

      EM : Nous pourrions être plus clairs en ajoutant « OU que le But a probablement fonctionné dans l’état Par Défaut pendant une très longue période. » Lorsqu’il y a douleur chronique, c’est toujours une indication d’une grande résistance à « quelque chose », et c’est souvent relié à des expériences générées par les tendances par défaut du But.

       

      Plus la douleur est intense, plus ça fait probablement longtemps.

       

      Les douleurs émotionnelles et physiques peuvent être le résultat de plusieurs années de tendances, et cela peut prendre autant d’années pour les inverser ou pour s’en libérer. La douleur intellectuelle ou spirituelle peut aller et venir assez rapidement et est souvent davantage représentative d’expériences plus locales de la Personnalité dans le temps.

       

      GeraldineB : Ai-je expérimenté la Discrimination plutôt comme un rejet pendant longtemps ?

        

      EM : Oh, oui, Géraldine. Le rejet et rejeter ont été le Par Défaut pendant de très longues périodes.

       

      Gardez ceci à l’esprit : votre douleur physique est maintenant une douleur physique. Cela peut vous aider de comprendre ce qui a conduit à cette douleur chronique, mais une fois qu’elle est physique, il est valide de la traiter simplement en termes physiques. C’est pourquoi cela devient physique : pour donner de la tangibilité à l’intangible qui était difficile à gérer à l’époque.

       

      Vos traitements, votre soulagement et prise en charge sont tout à fait pertinents pour le passé.

       

      Il n’est pas nécessaire de déterrer les anciennes tendances pour gérer la douleur actuelle.

       

      La douleur actuelle est un langage symbolique qui parle de cette douleur et de tout ce que vous avez besoin de savoir à son sujet.

       

      Nous ne disons pas cela pour décourager tout examen plus approfondi, mais il y a un sens à la douleur. Elle est ici, maintenant. C’est là que vous voudrez être aussi.

       

      GeraldineB : Douleur = langage symbolique ?

       

      EM : Oui, la douleur est un langage du corps. Elle parle toujours de notre résistance à un certain niveau. Même si cette résistance est seulement celle de la peau qui résiste à une piqure.

       

      Plus la douleur est chronique, plus les tendances dont cette douleur parle sont grandes.

       

      GeraldineB : Une digression : est-ce également vrai pour toute la douleur dont souffre Troy ?

       

      EM : Oui, Troy n’est pas exempté, bien sûr. Sa douleur est liée à un manque de soins attentionnés. Ceci est souvent représenté par son manque d’apport en d’eau. Le manque d’eau et d’hydratation génère la plupart de ses problèmes, et ceux-ci témoignent de sa résistance à permettre des soins attentionnés. Peu importe qu’il puisse embrasser consciemment l’idée. Il s’agit d’une tendance qui remonte à il y a longtemps et qui parle à la personne « la plus importante » de sa vie qui l’a torturé, et ainsi il la porte d’une façon insidieuse en négligeant l’apport d’eau, une force vitale pour le corps.

       

      Nous ne pouvons pas parler davantage sur ce sujet pour le moment.

       

      Claire2 : Je pense que je suis à Défi, oscillant entre Enthousiasme et Frustration. Dernièrement, je suis très consciente d’avoir choisi « de ne pas » me laisser aller à être frustrée, mais j’ai du mal à maintenir mon Enthousiasme. Je deviens très consciente du Choix, mais je ne sais pas toujours quels sont mes choix.

       

      EM : Claire, c’est une question importante. Si l’on découvre qu’on se trouve dans une version négative du But, des solutions peuvent être trouvées dans la version « précédente ».

       

      Dans ce cas, le retour au PARTAGE est vital.

       

      Vous voudrez tendre la main, créer des liens, générer et entretenir l’intimité avec les autres. Votre enthousiasme viendra de ce défi, de ce retour à quelque chose qui vous manque, qui est l’intimité.

       

      Si vous sentez que l’intimité fait déjà partie de votre vie, alors vous pouvez vous tourner vers elle comme un lieu pour votre enthousiasme. Profitez simplement d’être avec vos proches. Cela vous aidera à maintenir votre enthousiasme élevé, votre frustration basse, et à garder votre esprit ouvert et créatif pour quand vous verrez d’autres choix.

       

      Si vous sentez que le Partage/l’Intimité fait défaut, alors que cela soit le défi sur lequel vous vous concentrerez.

       

      Trouvez cela. Créez cela. Permettez cela. Encouragez cela.

       

      KittyMac : Je n’arrive pas encore à connaître et à comprendre le But de Discrimination, tant en général que dans ma propre vie. Je me reconnais dans la plupart des 7 versions que vous décrivez de sorte que je ne peux pas nécessairement dire où je suis en ce moment. Est-il possible d’être partout comme ça ? Ou suis-je simplement en train de m’aveugler pour ne pas voir où je suis vraiment ?

       

      EM : Nous pensons que vous pourriez aimer la vérité que « oui » est vrai pour vos deux questions.

       

      Tout d’abord, ceci n’est pas inhabituel pour ceux qui sont en Discrimination. La Discrimination peut être décrite comme étant essentiellement comment la Personnalité apprend à choisir, à raffiner les choix et, le plus important, aimer les choix. Ainsi, lorsque l’on n’a pas atteint un certain degré de raffinement du choix, alors tous les choix/directions semblent valides et pertinents. Ainsi, le spectre des versions du But ressemble au spectre qui est vous lorsque vous apprenez à choisir et à raffiner vos choix. La Discrimination consiste à apprendre à dire non et à le penser. Ne pas seulement dire non pour dire non. La Discrimination peut constater qu’elle dit oui à tout jusqu’à ce moment-là.

       

      Mais ce sentiment de pertinence pour toutes les versions du But peut aussi être le symptôme d’une personne dans l’état d’EFFORT.

       

      Quand on est dans l’Effort, on regarde dans toutes les directions pour avoir des conseils, de la considération, des commentaires, des idées, etc. afin que la Volonté puisse être mise derrière l’Effort. Jusqu’à ce moment-là, les Limbes peuvent ressemblées à un éparpillement et un étalement entre les différents états.

       

      Lorsque vous participez à l’Effort, vous vous engagez automatiquement dans une direction qui ressemble davantage à un mouvement vers votre But.

       

      Cependant, tout cela étant dit, il est toujours vrai que l’on trouvera de la pertinence et de la familiarité avec toutes les versions d’un But si l’on est vivant et conscient assez longtemps.

       

      SUITE…

       

      EM : Parce que chacun de vous peut se déplacer dans ces versions de votre But, il est utile de comprendre toutes les versions, puis de noter où vous en êtes. Tel que décrit à Claire, si vous trouvez que vous êtes dans le pôle négatif de votre version du But, regardez la version précédente pour savoir comment retrouver un sentiment de progrès.

       

      Si vous trouvez que vous êtes dans la version négative du Par Défaut, retournez à CHOIX et dansez entre la Création et l’Indulgence comme un moyen de vous sortir de la résistance.

       

      Vos « devoirs » ne sont donc pas seulement d’explorer ceci sur le plan de votre propre approche de votre But, mais de regarder autour de vous pour voir si votre compréhension des versions du But peut vous aider à comprendre les gens dans votre vie, votre monde.

       

      Nous avons donné notre avis. Nous pensons que chacun de vous savez assez bien où vous vous trouvez à un moment donné, et puisque cela fluctue, et que ce n’est pas particulièrement une progression où l’on s’arrête, il est plus logique que vous évaluiez cela par vous-même. Nous savons que Troy nous a invités à commenter où chacun de vous se trouve dans votre But, mais il ne savait pas que nous décririons ce processus comme étant non statique et moins linéaire.

       

      Nous pouvons répondre à vos questions.

       

      Maureen : J’ai eu beaucoup de mal à « accepter » ou à composer avec l’état de santé de mon mari et son déclin et sa mort éventuels. Mes niveaux d’anxiété « habituels » ont fortement augmenté et la dépression est apparue. Je pense que je me suis éparpillée, mais je suis récemment (je pense) passé au DÉFI. Je veux me libérer du DÉFI de la situation et passer au CHOIX au sein de mon But d’Acceptation. Je veux entrer dans un état de Véritable Acceptation et ne pas résister à ce qui est inévitable, pour nous tous, dans la vie. J’ai reçu un message clair il y a quelques semaines alors que je conduisais. J’ai entendu : l’anxiété est de la résistance.

       

      EM : Premièrement, il est important de noter que là où l’on est dans son But c’est là où l’on est. Il ne s’agit pas d’échapper à une version pour passer à une autre. Vous êtes dans une version de votre But parce que c’est le domaine sur laquelle vous travaillez, ou comment vous travaillez sur ce But. Le Défi est exactement là où vous êtes parce que vous êtes au milieu d’un grand défi. Accueillir ce défi est la seule voie à suivre.

       

      Vous n’êtes pas au mauvais endroit parce que vous êtes mis au défi. De plus, si vous vous trouvez dans la version négative du Défi, alors cela indique votre besoin de revenir à l’Intimité, de tendre la main, de vous connecter, d’être plus proche de quelqu’un. Vous êtes sur la bonne voie.

       

      Avoir de la difficulté à « accepter » la douleur, la maladie ou la mort d’un être cher n’est pas une faiblesse. C’est la vie. C’est naturel. Ce sont des défis, peu importe où l’on se trouve par rapport au But.

       

      Vous visez trop haut lorsque vous visez à accepter la mort, la douleur et la maladie. Ceux-ci ne nécessitent pas votre acceptation. Ils n’apportent ni avantage ni paix à vous ou au concept que vous les acceptiez.

       

      Seule la conscience doit être acceptée. Que ce soit sous forme de sentience, d’êtres chers ou de toute créature de raison ou de sentiment.

       

      Acceptez votre bien-aimé. Votre compagnon. Acceptez-VOUS. Le reste prendra soin de lui-même.

       

      « L’anxiété est de la résistance » est vrai, mais pour aller plus loin, l’anxiété est une résistance à la confiance ou un déni de la confiance. L’anxiété est la douleur de la méfiance.

       

      La vie est comme une personne pour ceux qui l’aiment.

       

      Donc, quand la vie fait du mal à un être cher, ou à soi-même, c’est un choc, cela semble personnel, cela incite à se méfier maintenant de cette « personne ».

       

      VOUS avez expérimenté la vie. C’est tout ce que vous avez expérimenté. VOUS n’avez jamais expérimenté la mort. Vous ne pouvez pas faire confiance à la mort. Vous n’avez aucune expérience de la mort. Pourquoi voudriez-vous vous forcer à faire confiance à quelque chose dont vous n’avez pas l’expérience ? La vie est ce en quoi vous avez confiance. Vous la connaissez bien. Peu importe que votre Essence ait eu des centaines d’incarnations. Chaque incarnation ne connaît que la vie jusqu’au moment où elle meurt. Elle ne connaît que très brièvement la mort.

       

      La vie ne vous a pas trahie. On peut toujours lui faire confiance. Mais la mort viendra. Elle est aussi inévitable que la respiration l’est pour vivre. La seule façon de basculer dans la confiance de la mort est de savoir que la mort est à l’Essence ce que la respiration est à la Personnalité.

       

      Vous connaissez l’Essence. Vous faites partie de l’Essence. Vous pouvez faire confiance à l’Essence. Et, éventuellement, elle prend son souffle. Elle doit respirer pour vivre. C’est comment vous êtes en vie et pourquoi vous mourrez. Mais c’est aussi comment et pourquoi vous n’aurez jamais de fin.

       

      Nous savons que la mort et la perte sont douloureuses. Nous n’avons pas oublié. Mais nous pouvons vous assurer que, même s’il n’y a pas de « paradis » au sens propre du terme, et que l’au-delà est moins romantique que l’imagination ne le souhaiterait, « vous » continuez. Nous sommes une entité intégrée avec des millions de Personnalités qui s’agitent parmi nous. Elles ne s’en vont pas. L’intégration n’est pas la même chose que la désintégration.

       

      Cependant, pendant que l’on vit, vivons. Pendant qu’un proche malade est vivant, laissons-le vivre. Quoique cela signifie, et cela pourrait signifier quelque chose de terrible ou de beau. C’est la vie. Rendez votre confiance à la vie et vous retrouverez votre confiance envers votre bien-aimé, vous-même, l’Essence et l’existence.

       

      Ce retour de la confiance peut aider à soulager votre anxiété, mais pas votre lutte. Pas vos défis. Ils sont là, peu importe comment vous les regarderez.

       

      Regardez-les différemment et l’acceptation viendra.

       

      Nous devons conclure ici pour aujourd’hui. Mais nous continuerons à nouveau. Comme vous tous, peu importe quand arrivera le jour de votre conclusion.

       

      Au revoir, pour le moment. Cela sera toujours « pour le moment » pour n’importe lequel d’entre vous.

      Votre But commence à être véritablement mis à l’épreuve par des forces extérieures.

      Choix
