  • How many sets of external monads do we do?

    Kasia

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: October 2009]
     

    [Question] How many essences do most essences choose to do many external monads with? Getting confused with what I’ve read, can’t find much in depth material. I know we do them all at least once, and to get to the love monad you do a certain group of them with the same essence, and some choose to do more than one love monad. That seems like a lot of monads to get through. Also, I can’t find any description of the love monad beyond the general experiencing agape, etc, and it’s not necessarily a mate thing, could be other relationships, right? Is this something usually done with ET and/or just a few other close essences?
     

    [Michael Entity]
    Most fragments tend to work in all of the major (classic) external monads in a way that leads to a Love Monad with at least 12 other fragments. Once the Love Monad is completed, this fragment becomes what we refer to as a Heart Link. Most fragments tend to develop at least 12 Heart Links. This may seem like a lot of external monads to complete, and it is, but keep in mind that many of these can be completed with multiple fragments within the same lifetime; many can be reciprocated within a single lifetime; and as Essence evolves and experiments with Concurrents, this adds more possibility for fulfillment. Over approximately 100 lifetimes or more, this is easily accomplished. Many fragments choose to fulfill external monads with those Essences most available and/or already linked, such as Essence Twins, Traveling Companions, the Primary Task Companion, and then those Task Companions who are added after the cycle begins. The Love Monad is not necessarily a final monad, but simply the Monad that moves two fragments into a final process of Agape. In other words, the commitment to truly Love one another has now been made.
     

    In that commitment, the Love Monad would show up as a commitment within the lifetime to “re-visit” literally or symbolically ALL Monads that have come to be fulfilled with one another. The reason for this is because True Love, or Agape, requires comprehension, and the Personalities attempt to truly grasp the magnitude of each other in the Love Monad. Most try to complete the Love Monad within a single lifetime, but we see that up to three lifetimes tend to be the average.
     

    [Question] Does this imply that the Love Monad occurs between fragments of the same soul age?
     

    [Michael Entity] Yes, and rarely before the Old Soul cycle.
     

    [Question] Are the “classic” ones that full set of about 30 I’ve seen around various places, or a subset?
     

    [Michael Entity] The “classic” set of monads have been listed elsewhere, yes, but we will also include those in the final transcript. [see end of transcript] Though the classics are often preferred, the Love Monad is not limited to having only done the classics. Many Love Monads arise from including a few rather rare or original external monads. Once a Love Monad is completed, ALL “charge” between those fragments is neutralized. In other words, those with Heart Links tend to rarely feel more than soft admiration and embrace of one another.

      [Michael Entity] We are here. Hello to each of you.
       
      [QUESTION] Tremendous amounts of seismic activity have occurred in the south pacific recently. What is the likely outcome of this? Does this portend something bigger to come?
       
      [Michael Entity] As you know, we cannot and do not predict, but we can say that the pattern does appear to indicate one of two major directions: That these releases are helping to alleviate a massive plate movement, or that it is leading up to a massive plate movement. The Pacific Plate appears to be shifting more drastically in relation to the Antarctic Plate, due to shifts in temperature and water allocation. At this point, the potential for either direction appears to be equal. The reason we cannot predict the momentum in one direction or the other is because this is one of many factors that would be a part of a Global Nexus building over the next couple of years. In other words, one world would have a massive plate shift, while the other shows a decline in seismic activity altogether.
       
      [QUESTION] Is it possible for what is happening to cause a slipping of ice off the Antarctic plate?
       
      [Michael Entity] It would be nearly impossible, but not impossible, to have the ice cap "slip," at least in a way that is dramatic. It would more than likely require a meteor impact for that to occur.
       
      [QUESTION] How are hive souls different from a human essence with concurrents? Is it the number of incarnations with a human essence having a much smaller number? Or is it a qualitative difference of the character of these different incarnations? Are hive souls also involved with soul levels?
       
      [Michael Entity] 
      Hive Souls are different because they are not fragments, and they are not Sentient by standards we use to define Sentience, which would be that one is in the final exploration of the Physical Plane as a Fragment who is evolving Self-Awareness combined with exponential capacity for Choice.
       
      Concurrents could be compared to the dynamic of Hive Souls, except that Concurrents have no awareness of one another and each Personality is individual, whereas in Hive Soul dynamics, there is a constant awareness of "the hive," or "species central," so to speak.
       
      We use the term "hive" because it is exactly what it is. The consciousness of each animal can come and go to that "hive" as often as necessary, and returns to that hive between lives, much like one might see in a bee hive, where all of the bees come and go as individuals, but always in coordination with one another, and sharing the same central home. In that regard, one could consider all of one's individual lifetimes as the "bees" to the "hive of Essence," but that is where the comparison would end, unless one were to look at the process of Sentience on a much grander scale, then Tao would be the "hive."
       
      All forms of consciousness move through some organized process of evolution, but until the level of Sentience, those forms of consciousness can opt back out of the process and return to Tao, move to other planetary systems, remain in one level for as long as is desired. Once there is the leap into Sentience, the commitment is permanent in terms of evolving exponentially.
       
      Consider an amusement park as an analogy:
       
      All forms of consciousness can ride any and all of the major rides, as often as desired, and even leave the amusement park for other amusement parks, or leave the amusement park circuit altogether and go "home." However, Sentience could be compared to a massive slide that, once boarded, has a natural momentum that pulls one forward and completely to the end, with very little room for abandoning the momentum.

      [Michael Entity] The "classic" set of monads have been listed elsewhere, yes, but we will also include those in the final transcript. [see end of transcript] Though the classics are often preferred, the Love Monad is not limited to having only done the classics.

In other words, those with Heart Links tend to rarely feel more than soft admiration and embrace of one another.
       
      [QUESTION] I'd like a little more insight into the whole enabling deal [how to tell if you are an enabler, and what to do if you are an enabler].
       
      [Michael Entity] 
      There are various forms of "enabling," but the generality is that this is a state of passive or active contribution to the harm of another person in the guise of support. The most definitive factor in determining if one is enabling, or not, is if your presence is contributing to the harm of yourself, or to the other. We emphasize "PRESENCE," as it does not have to be an active presence, but can be a passive one, that helps contribute to the harm to yourself, or to the other.
       
      Presence plus Harm equals "Enabling."
       
      We will further define "Harm" as systematic or sudden reduction in the capacity for choice.
       
      Putting all of this together, one can then help oneself determine if one is "enabling," if one's presence is actively, or passively, contributing to the reduction of another's, or your own, capacity for choice.
       
      If one discovers enabling is in effect, the next step is, of course, to make your choice as to whether to continue enabling, which is a valid choice in itself, to remove oneself from that dynamic altogether, or to take action in a way that contributes to the return of choice for both parties. The key in your next step, then, would be CHOICE, which helps to counter all harmful effects of Enabling.
       
      If one chooses to continue enabling after one has realized that is the dynamic, it will require a reduction of consciousness and a move into a division within the Personality. This is because, however regressive one's behavior can be, one's awareness cannot be unlearned. You now KNOW you are enabling, and you choose to continue to contribute harm. This will require a division within, as one part is fully aware, and the other part manages the habitual behavior.
       
      However, that part that is aware will now always be there, and it will most likely not be able to be ignored, however habitual the behavior continues. This is why we say that even the choice to continue can help counter the effects of enabling. In a sudden moment, everything can change, now that this awareness is in place. In other words, many will continue to enable, until they simply cannot.
       
      If you chose to remove yourself from the enabling dynamic, this leaves the other Personality to either find someone else to enable, or to find effective help, or to spiral further into his or her own demise. However, in a situation where one has not only become ineffective in bringing about healing and positive change, but has moved into a dynamic that is actually causing harm to both parties, then the choice to leave is not abandonment.
       
      It is love.
       
      For many fragments, the choice to step outside of the dynamic of self-harm that is generated by another fragment is one of the most difficult, and most loving choices, a Personality can ever make.
       
      It is entirely counter-intuitive to step outside of that dynamic, and often it is met with devastating feelings, but it is a choice that is rooted in absolute love, not only in that it is countering the harm that is built into the dynamic of enabling, but in that it is a trust in both parties to return to a capacity of choice that is higher than when together.
       
      The choices made beyond that cannot be guaranteed to bring about beautiful results, but the capacity for choice is there.
       
      Beyond continuing to enable, or removing oneself from the enabling dynamic, there is then the choice to take active measures to increase the capacity for choice for both parties.
       
      If this choice is made, it does not guarantee that the one who was enabled will be receptive to this increase of choice, but as one is in a state that is decreased capacity for choice, it is a fair and legitimate choice of another fragment to "intervene," if possible.
       
      Intervention may, or may not, be received, but the effort to bring this to the previously-enabled fragment's life is a valid choice, if you choose to do so, and if the resources are there to help you to do so.
       
      [QUESTION] One wonders whether animals are happy in zoos, but on the other hand zoos are nowadays helping to save threatened species. Does the positive outweigh the negative?
       
      [Michael Entity] On a small scale, there are a number of zoos where the impact is for preservation, sanctuary, and rehabilitation, and these zoos are fairly clear and open in that agenda. We see most animals in that scenario to find value in the experience as this contributes to their own evolution of consciousness. Anytime animals can be in close proximity to Sentience while capable of maintaining their own level of capacity for choice, much is gained. However, most zoos do not share this agenda, and simply exist as a business for generating city or personal revenue, contributing to the unnecessary confinement, capture, and harm of those animals involved. We cannot say that the positive outweighs the negative, but we can say that if one is concerned, it is usually obvious which zoos are sanctuaries, and which are businesses.
       
      [QUESTION] So one can visit a sanctuary zoo with a clear conscience?
       
      [Michael Entity]
      That would be a question only you could answer. We know that many can visit the most harmful of zoos and still have a "clear conscience," while others can visit the most beneficial of zoos, and leave feeling a deep guilt or sorrow. However, we can say that if one's concern is the comparison between benefit vs destruction, then those zoos focused on sanctuary, etc, may be more comfortable for the compassionate Personality.
       
      Compassion and consciousness grow parallel to one another, and are often linked with sensitivity. If one's consciousness and compassion has evolved to a point where these questions are important, and one feels that the participation in one zoo contributes to one's idea of good work, over the work of another, then the choice may be an easy one for that individual. For another fragment who is not emphasizing broad compassion and consciousness, then the choice may simply be as to which one would bring more personal joy or entertainment.
       
      We wish to point out that we see all choices as valid, but in terms of contributing to the choices available to non-sentient species vs the reduction of choice for that species, we do see this concern as growing parallel to one's evolution of consciousness. For instance, one can easily remove the choice of a fellow Sentient fragment through murder in earlier lifetimes, but this eventually falls away as a solution as consciousness evolves. The same concern begins to extend to other species as that evolution continues.
       
      This is not to say that an Old Soul will not, or cannot, murder, or that an Infant or Baby soul does not have compassion and concern for other species, but that the progression is fairly consistent in terms of your question becoming an important to the fragment.
       
      [QUESTION]
      Hello, Michael. Based on the Teachings we've received so far, I cannot validate the truth of whether or not Cetaceans are an ensouled family of animals for a number of reasons:
       
      ...1) Michael has said that Cetacea are a transplanted group of Essences who are finishing off their Grand Cycles started elsewhere, but nearly gone extinct due to technological/civilization abuses. Also, their ensoulment started prior to humans.
       
      ...When did cetaceans first ensoul on earth?
       
      [Michael Entity] About 40 million years ago by Earth standards of measuring time. The original line of species from the original star system were land and water mammals who would resemble something more like variations of swimming wolves that could walk upright. The line of species on Earth that were used for continued ensoulment of the 3 Harmonies (about 5 million entities) was an Order that had some genetic history of land and water life, as well, but had become water-bound, with no appendages capable of environmental manipulation, and had developed the Intellectual Center to a point where a leap into self-awareness and capacity for choice could be ignited by the ensoulment.
       
      ...What was the average soul age level?
       
      [Michael Entity] The average Soul Age at the time of the transition was early Young.
       
      ...Have they continued to start new infant souls?
       
      [Michael Entity] Infant Souls stopped choosing these species millions of years ago, though 1 additional Harmony that had not begun its incarnations in the previous species joined the 3 who transferred, and those fragments know only Earth as their Sentient cycles. Most of the fragments who have become notorious in their curiosity and exchange with Human Sentience come from that Harmony.
       
      ...2) Cetaceans is a biological order, not a species -- just as primates is an order, not a species. The order Cetacea contains about ninety species, all marine except for four species of freshwater dolphins.
       
      ...Which species of Cetaceans are ensouled?
       
      [Michael Entity] The concept of "Species" is a relative concept, and one that is not consistent, complete, or agreed upon, even within your scientific communities. We use the term loosely, as it does have a fair amount of accuracy as a reference. In terms of Cetacea, nearly all species are ensouled, except the various Families known as the River Dolphin. Within the Cetacean world, "species" are experienced more in the way that Humans experience "Race," with no real differentiation between those Whales with teeth and those without.
       
      ...3) Michael has said that culture and social interactions are major parts of the evolution of humans' soul ages. The continual use of choice generates intense relationships, and karma. Civilization has grown out of a need to stabilize the effects of weather irregularities and to allow for surpluses.
       
      ...While I can understand that civilization may not be necessary in a stable environment and food supply, especially if one is nomadic, the impact of social interactions and karma seems necessary for soul evolution. None of the information about roles, overleaves, or even soul age level seem to apply to cetaceans. Nor do they seem to share a culture. Can you explain?
       
      [Michael Entity]
      The vast variation of cultures among Humans, however foreign, frightening, or familiar, all share mediums that are natural to your species. The same is true of Cetaceans who do not have the same capacity for manipulating their environment in a way that you would recognize their cultures, but in ways that are relative to their capabilities. In many cases, there are common grounds, but even within that common ground, it may not be recognizable to Humans as a "culture" by Human standards. Areas of culture that you might recognize would be in their dance, games, singing, poetry, families, story-telling, etc. These are areas that are handed down, taught, have become tradition, have evolved over time, and could be seen and heard by you for the most part, though it may not make sense to you. Beyond these common areas, art is quite important to Cetacea and this is done in an arena that you might recognize as a telepathic, or psychic, arena. Constructs of thought and feeling can be shaped in ways that can be transferred and shared among the various species. Many of the larger Whales might be experienced as floating art galleries, as they tend to store and collect art. Cetacea do not have religions as Humans do, but they do have their mythologies that could be said to be similar to religious mythology. Most of their mythologies are consistent and shared across species, all being variations of their history of commitment to rise above harm and violence, to cultivate arts, and to find their way home to the stars. Human mythology is similar, since Human Sentience was also transported from species off-planet, but Humans have turned their mythologies away from being a reflection of origin and intent, to being a process and mirror for dysfunction.
       
      Soul Age, Levels, Overleaves, etc, are just as valid among Cetacea as they are among Humans. There are instances when our students may recognize the validity of these factors in behaviors that are familiar, or as exchanges between Cetacean and Human. For the most part, your question is similar to a statement such as "all Chinese look alike," when that statement couldn't be further from the truth. That statement, as well as your question, merely reflects a lack of intimate experience with the individuals that make up that group. We can assure you that there is a spectrum of personalities among Cetacea, from wise Whales and wise-ass Whales, and beyond. As with any group of Sentience that has variations of body types, cultures, history, current circumstances, etc, Soul Ages tend to gravitate toward one group or another.
       
      For instance, in Humans the "Black Race" used to be primarily Mature Souls as slavery was imposed, and the fight for freedom and rights was building. Once a fair amount of freedom was secured, Young Souls have now moved into that "race" as a means to take advantage of that freedom. For many years, Servers found great value in building up the United States, but once the United States moved into a Young Soul paradigm, Servers shifted their population to China. Now that Mature Souls, and a return of emphasis to family and support is building, Servers are returning to the U.S. This same kind of movement of Souls and Soul Ages is within the Cetacea. The species known as Orca are more exciting to the Infant and Baby Souls, whereas the larger Whales are more appealing to the Older Souls. Now Orcas tend to be popular among Young Souls, and this contributed to an entire entertainment industry on land with Humans, as these Young Souls rebel against their cultures and insist that they can be "stars." Many of the familiar Dolphin tales of rescue and nurturing of stranded humans are Mature Souls, as well as the occasional beached, confused, or tragic incidences among Whales and Dolphins. Whales and Dolphins drawn to Human exchanges tend to be Sages and Scholars. Of course, within all of this are the Overleaves.
       
      In short, unless you are able to truly submerge yourself into another group, the things that you find familiar may not be found among that group, but that does not invalidate the reality of their souls or their cultures.
       
      ...4) Michael has said that the essential component necessary to a intelligent species to make the leap to sentience and ensoulment is imagination. Choice requires imagination and creative thinking. Whales, dolphins, and porpoises are generally deemed very intelligent, but there seems little evidence of imagination. Humpback whales display creative thinking in their use of encircling herring in a ring of bubbles that forces them into a ball for easy capture. But for all of the millennium that humans and cetacea have co-existed, none of the cetaceans seem to have much understanding or lore about avoiding human hunters. Cetacean language may include song but it doesn't include historical or teaching stories. The oceans are vast and unpredictable; they are not humans' natural element. Yet, they managed to hunt several species of whale to near extinction. How was this possible?
       
      [Michael Entity]
      Humans hunt, enslave, murder, and torture EACH OTHER on small scales and large scales. The fact that this can still occur, even with all that has come to be recorded and learned by your own species, does not negate your imagination, capacity for choice, and sentience. The fact that Humans can extend this violence and impose it upon other creatures, does not, in any way, negate their capacity for feeling or suffering, let alone their capacity for choice, imagination, and sentience. One of the primary motivating factors for Humans is Fear. One of the primary motivating factors for Cetacea is Love. In the same way that most Humans will gauge their options through a filter of fear, Cetacea tend to filter their options through Love. This means that their "lore" and teachings are rooted in trust, open-mindedness, affection, and innocence. Despite the fact that a Cetacean species may be hunted to the point of extinction, Cetacea will not give up the concept that there is hope for peaceful relations with every other species. In addition to this, their concepts of death are quite different from Humans', and their emphasis is on life and living moment to moment, rather than in a way that is entirely based in fear and preservation. Keep in mind that this is a group of Sentience who destroyed themselves and the habitable status of their original planet. They are simply not going to go down any path of choice that hints at war or fear. This is not to say they do not experience fear, or choose fear, but that they do it in other ways unrelated to survival.
       
      Every group of Sentience moves through cycles that could be described in terms of Overleaves, and for the past Century, Cetaceans have been in Spiritualist cycle, with Idealism before that. The new century cycle is one of Realism, and this may help temper some of the blind faith and naivety that has been a part of their societies for a couple of centuries.
       
      Humans have moved out of a cycle of Cynicism and into Idealism, tempered with Pragmatism.
       
      As for imagination, most of this you simply cannot see. To insist that one species use the tools, or the familiar media, that another species uses as a means to determine intelligence and imagination, is simply an invalid method of interpretation.
       
      [QUESTION]...Additionally, since karma is created when sentient species kill sentient species, how will the karma be balanced between the whale hunters and the whales? Or even the tuna fisherman and the dolphins?
       
      [Michael Entity] Karma is only generated if INTENSITY is generated on at least one side of the scenario and attached to the other. With Cetacea inherently forgiving and naive, very little Karma has been generated. In instances where Karma has been generated, it would be burned in the same way that you understand Ribbons to be burned among Humans. This would either be a reversal of the scenario in another life, or a creative form of balance that is focused on rescue and saving lives. In other words, for example, many Whale hunters from the past are now activists for their protection.

      Note from Janet:
      In the comments following the original posting of this session, the following exchange occurred which may be relevant to those reading this transcript:
       
      Comment:
      Very interesting Troy, I do have a question about humans on occasion incarnating into cetaceans or the other way around. I simply cannot abide Micheal's take that this does absolutely not happen. I tend to feel I have had at least one lifetime in this form while still doing the human rounds, so to speak. Can you comment on why essence might choose to do this and what reasons would predispose essence to do this as opposed to maybe sticking to a one species at a time kind of thing. I imagine that in life there have to be the occasional exceptions to the rule. Look at Bill Gates' wealth, Micheal Jackson's talent, Hitler's atrocities etc etc
       
      Response from Troy:
      My first response is that Bill Gates, Michael Jackson, and Hitler don't represent anything similar to an "exception to the rule" that might be similar to an exception like Sentience leaping around in different species. Those people are still living within the context of being human and using the same playing field we all have access to. They may be exceptional to the average life, but not exceptional to any rule.
       
      But Michael has addressed this sense of memory for some as being Cetacean, and Michael has said that these memories vary from fantasy to astral reviews to being friends with other Sentient Essences, and memories other Grand Cycles.
       
      FANTASY: Some of us identify strongly with what we see as such innocence and wisdom and peace, so we create fantasies about having been one of them.
       
      ASTRAL REVIEW: When it's from astral review, it's usually from between lives when we had taken part in the harm of a Cetacean.
       
      Michael has explained that our astral review always includes a complete examination of any harm we caused to any creature. Any time our consciousness gets to a point where we begin considering the consequences of our actions on other creatures, sentient or otherwise, we generate a kind of self-karma that we work through. So if we pointlessly squash a bug, bite into a hamburger, and we realize that our actions contributed to the harm of a creature, or if we are on a whaling boat and start to realize that something is very painful and upsetting about that exploitation, we explore the flip side in our astral review. That means we literally cast a part of our consciousness into an animal, insect, bird, or reptile and experience whatever we did that caused their demise or wounding. If an incarnated animal isn't in any situation that could lend that experience, then it will be done entirely on the astral, and though the physical experience may be compromised a bit, the emotional experience would be equal. This is how we begin to truly grasp compassion beyond the limits of our species.
       
      FRIENDSHIP: Michael says it's not uncommon at all for groups of Sentience who are incarnating in different species that do not interact on the physical plane in any meaningful way to still develop friendships outside of the Physical Plane. There are a lot of fragments throughout the body of students of Michael who are good friends with many Cetacean Sentients. And probably just as many who have friends (as Essence) from off-planet, as well. Michael has said that when the species don't interact in a way that can build relationships, then the Essences will explore each others' species and environment during astral review, sometimes even acting as a guide while one is incarnated.
       
      GRAND CYCLES: And then Michael has also said that there were other species similar to Cetaceans in our past Grand Cycles that, as we grow older in soul age, we might be remembering.
       
      In the end, Michael says that you can believe whatever you want, though, of course.
       
      Further comment from Geraldine:
      I think that something that you're not taking into consideration is the long period of time where your Essence was exploring the beginning of their Grand Cycle and experimenting on the physical plane. This is when each Essence spends time as all of the beginning and simplest elements, minerals, rocks, simple animals and plants -- all the way on up to being Hive Souls and Devas. All seven kingdoms of existence are experienced in order to develop Essence to be ready to ensoul into a species. Not all of these experiences are spent on earth and many Essences who do experience a kingdom or two will move onto another planet elsewhere on the physical plane.
       
      While I've read elsewhere that humans and cetaceans experience cross-species ensoulment, I tend to go along with Michael on this one as it's consistent with all of the rest of their teachings about Role in Essence development. It's very possible that you have a whale totem animal and are picking up those "vibes." I know that I have a Blue Whale as one of my totem animals.

      Centers and Body Types
       
      Note from Janet: Although the intent for the topic was Centers and Body Types, no discussion of Body Types occurred.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We are here. Hello to all of you.
       
      We will begin with the Energy Report as we see it for the weeks of December 9 through the 22nd.
       
      It is, of course, not a coincidence that many of you have begun discussing the properties and personal experiences of the Centers, as many of you are shifting into next year’s basic Centering at this time. Though a year’s “Overleaves” are not defined entirely and are not static at any given time, there is an overall set that does appear to have influence over varying levels of consciousness, at least symbolically. In the case of Older Souls, that set of influences can begin to take place in the few months before the new year.
       
      We will also note an unusual phenomenon that is occurring for all of you: currently, in such a short time span between them, another larger Nexus Shift occurs. It is not uncommon for great shifts to occur throughout a year, but another shift is beginning on the 10th, and another in January/February, while this is all following the large shift in November. These shifts with little “breaks” between them are creating a great amount of shifting in levels of Energy among your Overleaves and your ability to participate in the world. There appear to be distinct days when your energy seems quite inspired and above normal, while the next few will find you seeming to be locked in an infinite stream of constricting thoughts and low energy. For some this will feel like “limbo,” while for others this can feel “manic.”
       
      The Center for the next year, at this time, appears to be Moving, with bursts of Higher Moving. Unless you are Moving Centered, yourself, this is going to begin to feel like a time of shifting into OBVIOUS manifestations of what you are DOING.
       
      (We remind you that our Energy Reports are not predictions, they are merely comments on patterns and how you might be able to use them or dismiss them.)
       
      Having a field of Moving Centered Energy as the context for a period of time can mean a great deal of attention would be coming to the body and its relationship to its environment. We are speaking of its Physical environment, which can translate into a range from its sources of stimulation, affection, and activity, to its ability to use the finer energies that make up and create the Physical Plane.
       
      Some of you may begin to pull out your old copies of teachings which focus on the concepts of “creating your own reality” and take a more active approach to reality than usual. While others may begin to feel overwhelmed by the “responsibility” that the Moving Centers imply while Physical.
       
      Besides the fact of what you call “the holidays,” a stronger and stronger desire to be with those whom you care for and feel part of will begin to be a priority.
       
      If these basic trends continues and the next year continues with the Moving Centered theme, we will be able to comment more accurately on how it might manifest. For now, a primary theme appears to be those points we just mentioned, along with a heightened awareness of your food intake and ability to literally move (health).
       
      We will conclude the report here and take any questions about it before we discuss the Centers.
       
      [Kathryn] Many of us, myself included, have been feeling very drained and tired or just down lately. Is this the reaction to this energy report influence?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We don't believe the Energy Report itself has any influence as such, but the Energy, itself, we are reporting about may very well be what you are responding/reacting to.
       
      For those who have any kind of health deficiencies, however minute, the Moving Center will markedly “force” the body into a position that is more inclined to facilitate recovery. This can be sleep, mental distraction, high activity, anger, etc., but it’s point is to facilitate recovery.
       
      Another important factor to consider is the inherent nature of any Nexus having a sedating effect on the Human body as realities shift and creativity on another level is affecting the body. You do “create reality,” and that still uses energy. Most of the time, that energy is being held preciously by the Personality for reasons it doesn't even understand. The sedation and “tired phase” allows the “grip” to loosen and your reality can then free up some energy for changes to be made.
       
      Most of you have your Personalities quite in charge of your lives, even if it doesn't quite “know” what to do. When a shift is needed and the Personality is choosing to work with Essence, the Personality will gladly concede and “take a nap.” At some point, in some lifetime, a shift will happen wherein the Personality and Essence are aligned enough that control is not shifted from one to the other, but is shared.
       
      If there are no other questions on the Energy Report, we will discuss CENTERING. We feel there is no need to introduce the Centering to you, as many of you are already fairly studied in this area of our teaching. We will, however, respond to all of your questions about this area so as to clarify and help with the application of the information.
       
      [MaryBV] How does centering affect memory?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      ALL Centers have their form of Memory in storage and retrieval.
       
      The Intellect stores and retrieves memory in the form of Thoughts, Ideas, and is Visually interpreted.
       
      The Emotional memories are stored and retrieved in the form what are commonly understood as Feelings, Emotions, and are Aurally interpreted.
       
      The Moving stores and retrieves its memories in the forms of Health, Activity, and are Sensually interpreted.
       
      Each Center does affect how events are remembered; especially in the mixture of the Centering with the Part.
       
      The Intellect affects the memory with its level of beliefs and justifications; the Emotions affect memory with its sentimentality and attachments; the Moving affects the memory through its levels of vitality and productivity at the time.
       
      For each of these examples above, they are only part of how each Center may affect memory, and those factors always stem from the PRESENT (retrieval), not how or what was stored.
       
      Each Center is involved in Memory, of course, but the habitual Centering will affect how a fragment's memory is used habitually.
       
      Each Ordinal Center is referencing memory of the current lifetime and physicality. If more information outside of that realm is required or resonating, it is then drawn through the Higher of that Center. The Instinctive Center is the communication medium between the Cardinal and Ordinal.
       
      Since the Instinct/Assimilation is usually maintaining the task of protection of the body, most memory filtered there is decidedly fearful or not. This is why most long-standing memories are either decidedly joyful or painful.
       
      We can continue to extrapolate on this topic, but we will ask if we are answering your question appropriate to your intent.
       
      [MaryBV] Well, I should have asked also how the role plays into this, but that is probably a topic for a whole discussion.
       
      [Michael_Entity] The Roles play little part in how memory is used or affected, since each lifetime sets a new design for the body and the Body/Personality is the tool for memory. The Essence's choice of Overleaves is the most direct impact. Since Time is not a factor for Essence, it does not have the need for “memory” as it is experienced on the Physical Plane.
       
      [MaryBV] I see, so what accounts for smell/taste, etc., in memory?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Every Cell and Atom in your body has the ability to “remember,” which means it has the ability to re-create. When the Personality or Body calls on a memory to be reconstructed, it will call on these minute parts of self to participate. It is of no mystery that you can recall a scene in a movie, which is Visual, but it is no more a mystery for the other senses to have that ability to reconstruct, as well.
       
      [WickedBear] Could you discuss the fundamental differences between the two action centers?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The most fundamental difference is in that the Ordinal pertains to the immediate environment of the Personality and Body, while the Cardinal pertains to all that encompasses that. The Moving Center, then, would govern and process the events of the actual, Physical Body and its health, activity, manipulation of environment, etc. The Higher Moving Center would then govern and process those similar things, but as they pertain to larger patterns that include everything pertaining to the Essence.
       
      It could be said that the Moving Center is the manifestation/expression of that particular Personality's part in the Higher Moving tapestry of the Essence.
       
      [Elf] Is the Part of Center chosen about the same time as the Centering? And what is most influential in that choice?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Centering is chosen by the age of 3 in most cases, while the Part/Trap is a habit by the age of 7 (approximately).
       
      The most influential aspect of that choice is in the major theme then settled on for the lifetime as to how to process events. The Center/Part becomes the Body's primary strength and challenge, and sets the stage for relationships, health, and beliefs for the majority of the life. Depending on your Centering and Part, you will find that your PART/TRAP becomes the defining obstacle to hurdle in coming to peace with a lifetime.
       
      If the balance can be called upon for any Center, regardless of habit, then a great freedom is experienced within the lifetime. The first examination of this is in the 4th Internal Monad when the Part is either simply a Part, or continues to be the Trap. Most will find as the life progresses that the Part becomes the Trap, the more they ignore the need for that third Center to be incorporated. As part of the process for finding that balance, the neglected Center will eventually require attention.
       
      For those lacking in the Moving Center, then health, prosperity, material security, physical need for affection and validation can become stages for its balance.
       
      For those lacking in the Intellectual Center, then over-questioning, overwhelm, isolation, indecisiveness, and unacknowledged dependence on others for direction are examples of where the imbalance can show up.
       
      For those lacking in the Emotional Center, then alienation, hypercriticism, unacknowledged issues of rejection, can tend to be some of the arenas for balance.
       
      [Elf] Thank you. So the Part/Trap of Center is then somewhat a part of the Life Task?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, the Centering/Part are intrinsically linked to the Tasks of the Life. Centering habits tend to define how the Personality uses its 4 “pillars,” of which the Life Task (True Work), is one of those pillars. Your True Rest is directly linked to the use of your neglected Center. Your True Work is directly relating to the Goal.
       
      The Centering/Part is not inherently a challenge to your Life Task, but it is a powerful definition of the path.
       
      And with that, we will conclude. Good Night.

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

      By Miizle
      I asked Michael about my current and near future external monads. In their response after the list of monads they said : "These may or may not be fulfilled, but they are active and would stand out as significant relationships that require dedicated attention." I'm just wondering what it actually means that the monad is active, if it can be active but also "fulfilled", which means finished, right? I'm wondering which people to look at to try to pinpoint them to the monads they told me i have. Can i exclude for example  those with whom i am not in any contact anymore? Cheers 🙂
