    Child abuse: Karma or Agreements?

    Kasia

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: January 2001]

    [ludmila] There has been much talk lately about child-abuse. What kind of karma or agreements is involved in this? Specifically sexual abuse of children by adult authority figures

    MEntity:
    Child abuse is not a standardized event. There are many factors that may be involved in the experience of abuse, whether between adult and child, human and non-human, etc. Karma is either created or is being balanced, though it is very rare for an Agreement to be involved, except in the Old and Mature Soul Cycles. Abuse when linked to an Agreement is specifically, then, related to the imprinting required for the fulfillment of the Life Task. Whether the abuse is “used” effectively as a tool in that process will rely on the fragment and the use of the Overleaves, in general.

    Abuse in relation to “Authority Figures” and children is not a category anymore than abuse from a stranger harassing a child on the playground. There are no definitions or differentiations that can create categories of abuse except in “styles” of abuse. We will say, however, that those who have experienced abuse as children at the hands of Authority Figures (assuming it is not a Karmic Formation), are generally balancing Karma related to Positions of Authority where Abuse was inflicted by “themselves.” As with all Burning of Ribbons, the Karmic situation is usually, simply, reversed.

    We do not know if we have addressed the deeper issues of concern or question here, but we have answered the question as stated, as clearly as we can.

    [mamajo] How can one tell when Karma is being created, and when it is an agreement to facilitate imprinting?

    MEntity:
    Any formation/burning of Karma interrupts and distracts the life in a deeply affecting way. Karmic Formation can usually be identified as lacking compulsion to be involved, but there is an element of shock and chaos. Karmic Burning of Ribbons is usually marked by a compulsion to remain involved far past logic and emotion and body would dictate otherwise, followed by a great relief when the Karma is burned. In the event of the Burning, much of what was so compelling is then seen in a bewildering light, as if you were in a trance the whole time.

    In terms of facilitating Imprinting, the fragment being abused usually has a “bizarre” sense of safety and peace throughout the events. There is a creation of a strong support group outside of the event, in many of these cases, which are rare, as we said. The abuse as imprinting is heavily marked by this use of the experience as a platform for a greater vision or affect on the life in a discernible way, without referencing the abuse in a negative way.

      [Excerpt from Membership Gratitude Chat: March 2016]

      Becca: Hi Michael. I have an interest in true crime and was wondering if you have access to information about whether people who are accused of crimes are guilty, or the locations of missing people. I understand that some people claim to be psychics able to lead investigators to this kind of information. Is this a legitimate skill? Part of their life task or karma, for instance? Would it be possible for channel to learn the whereabouts of a missing child, such as Madeleine McCann, or whether a suspect is guilty? 

      MEntity:
      We tend to only have access to details about crimes after the Karmic Ribbons are burned or in stasis. Karmic events tend to remain acutely localized among the fragments involved until there is time to process the experiences. We do not have access to individuals and their local data. We only have access to what is updated in the Akashic Records. 

      Local psychics, however, can "read" more localized energies in ways that can be successfully interpreted as leads and insights. 

      Most are not very accurate or skilled in these interpretations, but some are. 

      We can sometimes find keys or lost objects if an updated record reveals a memory of recent placement of these objects. We can sometimes locate lost individuals if there is no Karmic dynamic obscuring our view. 

      In the case in question, we cannot see details at this point. 

      When a valid psychic is involved in this line of work, it tends to be related to their Life Task, and various other factors in their design.

      AGREEMENTS, CORDS, and PARALLELS
       
      MichaelEntity:
      We will speak on the subject of what we refer to as Agreements.
       
      "Agreement" is most directly defined within our teaching as a "casual, non-binding preconceived agenda created between two (or among many) for the sake of a mutual or directly impacting experience."
       
      Before a lifetime is physically begun, the Essence has anticipated many contexts within the lifetime and in that anticipation knows that certain other fragments are required for certain experiences. As part of that anticipation, Essence seeks out fragments who share in similar paths, or who may need some reciprocating event, or who may simply be interested in the experiences being anticipated. There are a number of contexts for which preconceived Agreements are arranged. Some examples might be in the areas of Matedness, Child-bearing, and Pivotal/Facilitator experiences.
       
      Agreements are made on a personal level and on a group level. Some of your Agreements are, for instance, to meet another fragment and try out Matedness. Some of your Agreements are, for instance, with a group of fragments, such as with your Entity and Cadre, to try out the teachings of a non-physical Entity during a span of lifetimes.
       
      We remind you that Agreements are NON-binding. No Agreement is static, nor is it a commitment. It is an Agreement.
       
      While between lives, the anticipation of the upcoming life can set up hundreds of Agreements, but as the life actually unfolds and the Personality is in charge of making decisions, the Agreements can be abdicated, delayed, or altered. The management of Agreements is usually done from the perception of Essence, so there is usually no need to be too concerned. As the soul grows in awareness, though, the participation of the Personality becomes extremely important in the process of Agreements. To accommodate the Personality and its own experience of navigating the Physical Plane, the Personality has complete "say" in creating, altering, or delaying any Agreements, regardless of plans generated before the life.
       
      The Essence may have set up a Mate Agreement for a certain period of the life, but has come to find that the fragment in Agreement has taken up smoking and heavy drinking, which is far from compatible with the Personality. The Personality may have made it very clear to Essence through varying means that he or she is incompatible with a smoker or an alcoholic. In that case, new Agreements may be generated to accommodate the Personality. In other instances, the smoker may have died or be in alcoholic rehabilitation for the time frame of the original Agreement. This can result in an abdication or a prompting from the Personality to have Essence "set up something else." In other words, Agreements can be made at any time and are extremely malleable, including the wishes of the Personality.
       
      Most fragments retain most of the original Agreements made before the lifetime, even if new ones are made, especially as an Older Soul because the perceptions as Essence vs. Personality become more and more synchronized for the creation of the life.
       
      Agreements are made as Primary or Secondary. Primary Agreements are those made with the original intentions and participants, while Secondary Agreements are those made with fragments who agree to be “back ups.” If you have a Secondary Agreement, the fulfillment can come like a surprise compulsion or distraction until your life adjusts to the need for your participation in that Agreement. If you need one of your own Secondary Agreements to stand in, you may find a shift of direction that may seem surprising and disorienting at first, because the Primary Agreement has abdicated. Secondary Agreements are made when it is highly important for that particular experience to be gained. Some of our channels use these terms without comprehension and this can be confusing to the student. In those instances, we usually find our student through an alternative channel and clarify the context.
       
      While the notion of Agreements may seem intangible, there are skills that can be developed by the Personality as a means to navigate the lifetime more consciously so as to fulfill Agreements, or attract/find those Agreements of interest. Many competent Astrologers, for instance, can calculate varying Agreements by looking at the transits occurring for an individual. We can elaborate on our astrological methods in another gathering, if there are those who are interested.
       
      Agreements are fulfilled by entering what we call a Sequence. A Sequence is the steps taken to fulfill an Agreement that then become a kind of acceleration toward that fulfillment. Although Agreements can be abdicated, altered or delayed, once the Sequence has begun, the abdication or alteration can tend to have more impact.
       
      If the alteration or abdication is mutual (or at least mutually understood), it is relatively uneventful, but if the abdication is one-sided, the effect can be as devastating or uneventful as the other fragment’s chosen reaction. Most of the stronger reactions to an abdication are in the realm of intimacy, such as Business Partnerships, or Mate Agreements. If two fragments agree to matedness, and one abdicates after the Sequence has begun, the experience can be quite painful. This does not mean one is obligated to an Agreement once one has started, but in the process of understanding Agreements, it is fair to consider the impact of your choices on your Agreements.
       
      The fulfillment of an Agreement, once a Sequence has begun, can feel quite compelling, but it is not Karmic. Karma is a search for balance among extremes, while Agreements are a search for basic experiences.
       
      Agreements are not always what would be considered "positive." Sometimes an Agreement can be as bizarre as making sure one is in the right place at the right time to have a car slide on ice to then impact another car, providing the other person with an exit point from the life. In fact, many "accidents" are simply Agreements. Synchronicity of events to fulfill agreements is neutral, but how you interpret those events is the key to how they impact you or another fragment.
       
      We will begin taking questions now because of the limitation of time, but the subject is capable of being explored more deeply.
       
      SilverOne126: how do you determine what is an agreement and what is monadal? How do the basics differ? thank you
       
      MichaelEntity: External Monads ARE Agreements. [definition: External Monads are strong Agreements between 2 people to experience one side of a particular kind of classic relationship, such as Husband/Wife, Parent/Child, Slovenly/Meticulous, Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved, etc.] A Monad may seem more compelling because of the submersion in the Sequence, as mentioned previously, but it is still a form of Agreement. In the same way that one may make an Agreement for Matedness, one would make an Agreement to complete a Monad together. If a person is in a Monad, an Agreement has been struck. In the same way that any Agreement can be abdicated, any Monad may be interrupted, though the impact is quite strong.
       
      slacnj: My question is, aside from being in the positive poles of Overleaves, how can you contact essence or other sources to attract more agreements if nothing is happening in your life?
       
      MichaelEntity: When you have made conscious contact with Essence, you would then specifically determine what kind of Agreements you wish to attract/create/find. We have suggested to many of our students a method for examining Agreements in the life, and we will share that method briefly.
       
      slacnj: if essence sets them up, you have to contact it to have them
       
      MichaelEntity:
      No. In most instances, if you simply live your life as you choose, you will wander your way to any Agreements that may be standing. On the other hand, if you are an Older Soul who wishes to participate more in generating Agreements, you can use the method to follow.
       
      Agreements are attracted/found/created among fragments through the finer connections shared among fragments “stretching” from the Chakras, or Centers. We refer to these connections as CORDS, an almost non-physical means of communication among fragments. Cording was evolved before language and is now so intrinsic to human interaction, it is quite unconscious.
       
      While Cording is a phenomenon that is basic to any interaction, Agreements are a specific kind of Cording. Cords could be described as the frequency, or resonance of particular Chakras with another fragment's Chakra, most easily visualized as an elastic-like cord. If one were to have a general visualization of the auric body, one would find hundreds of cords streaming from the body out into the world and connected to loved ones, friends, and complete strangers. Of course, the “cords” are merely a means to visualize something finer, but the image works.
       
      Cords coming from the "front" of your body are those you have consciously allowed to connect with you and your energy system. Cords streaming from the "back" of your body are those you have accepted unconsciously or out of obligation, etc., from people who are "leaching" your energy system.
       
      Of course, ALL Cords are attached to you through some level of consent. The Cords are never imposed upon your energy system. In the same way that you might not realize you have food stuck in your teeth, Cording from "behind" is attained as easily.
       
      Cords from the "front" are uplifting, energizing, and inspiring, while Cords from the "back" are draining, tiring, and depressing. Cords from the “back” can be those left from old relationship issues, from strangers curious about you, “crushes,” distanced relationships, being exposed publicly (such as on stage), etc. We use the words Front and Back as a convenience and as a means to simplify your visualizations, but there is not literally a front or back to your energy system.
       
      If you wish to attract or create Agreements beyond the scope of the original life plan, you might begin with a practice of Auric Hygiene, visually cleansing your energy system of the draining cords, then inviting the new ones. Cords can be cleansed from your energy system by being submerged in water, or through a visualization process. If using water, we suggest simply "washing" the cords from your "back" as you shower or bathe, imagining the fine cords dropping from your back and freeing your energy. If just using visualization, we suggest "draping" a mesh “shawl” of gold light from head to toe, "burning off" the cords from behind. The mesh is visualized as a shawl draped over your head and around your shoulders, and down the length of your back. Imagining the shawl remaining on you throughout the day can help divert unwanted cording, as well.
       
      To specifically invite or create an Agreement, one would clearly define/state/invite them. Consider exactly what it is you are inviting into your life, for what reason, and clarifying the potential mutual benefit. This would then need to be clearly stated to your Essence, either verbally, in writing, or as approaching sleep. Next, we always suggest INVITING an Agreement, since an Agreement involves another fragment accommodating your request. Imagine that you are making psychological room for this new agreement and ask yourself/Essence what steps need to be taken to attract this into your life. Pay attention to your impulses, trust your Essence, and comfort any desperation you may have.
       
      There are two ways to repel any Agreements from being fulfilled: By never actively socializing or interacting with other fragments and by falling into a sense of desperation and neediness that can repel even the most loving of Agreements. If you do not interact with the world, you cannot fairly expect the world to find you on your couch in your living room, for instance. If you panic with emotional need and desperation, making no effort to nurture yourself in the ways you may wish another to provide you, then even the most loving of fragments may be repelled. Most Agreements are fulfilled because they will “make a difference” or because they are fun. To simply wish another fragment to rescue you from some aspect of your life, be it emotional or material, can be the equivalence of inviting a fragment into a “black hole.”
       
      When you consciously INVITE an Agreement, and then turn lovingly back to your life, trusting the process, the space and time is then more easily generated to make those Agreements move into Sequences.
       
      BradburySE: I want you to confirm or deny something, although I think you've touched on it already. Is it true, to say that an Agreement with another cannot be abrogated at the personality level once essence has decided absolutely to go ahead with it? If essence has decided to follow through, the personality can no longer abrogate the initial stages by moving away, for instance? And if essence has decided to "skip it", nothing the personality can do will make it happen?
       
      MichaelEntity:
      No, that is absolutely false. Essence has no investments in corralling the Personality into some kind of contrived, “fated” funnel of experiences. Essence has as many parallels as needed to accommodate the varying reactions and decisions of the Personality across time. [NOTE from Troy: “Parallels” are dimensional “spin offs” of reality created when you make a major choice, leaving other choices behind. In truth, those choices are explored as well, in another version of reality just as “real” as the one you consider your own.] There will always be at least one version of the Personality that will seek to follow the original ideas of the Essence, but Essence finds great excitement in the creativity of the Personality as it makes its own decisions, creating far more avenues of experience than even Essence could generate from its perspective. Essence has a broader perspective of the life, but it relies entirely on the Personality for navigation through the Physical Plane.
       
      Agreements are also flexible enough that they can shift, if necessary. If an Agreement was made to meet a fragment by bumping into him at a certain corner, and your Personality gets distracted by an ice cream parlor long enough to miss the meeting, the two Essences will find this humorous and simply reschedule. The Agreement is delayed or altered and Essence gets to experience the delicious joy of a spontaneous delight of dessert.
       
      We will say, however, that if only one of the parties involved abdicates the Agreement, nothing can be done to force one back into an Agreement.
       
      Kieran O Shea: What happens when two parallels die? Are they integrated into the essence?
       
      MichaelEntity:
      Yes, if a version of the Personality "dies" in a parallel, it gets its own version of the afterlife, as it awaits the conclusion of all parallel versions of Personality. The afterlife and review experience is sustained until the last of the parallels "die" wherein the entirety of varying parallels are then examined by Essence. In most cases the next life begins with the knowledge and experiences gained across all of the previous life’s parallels. As the Soul ages and becomes more adept at creating lives, multiple separate starts of the next life can be of interest to Essence, which we refer to as concurrent lifetimes [having multiple bodies and personalities on the planet with the same time and space].
       
      All of you here have had at least 3 or more versions of your Personality "die" in some parallels by now.
       
      These deaths DO NOT affect the remaining Parallels.
       
      flimflamdamn: is there some impact of that event in one's life?
       
      MichaelEntity: Some fragments can begin to consciously or unconsciously bridge a few parallels and sense the deaths. This comes from a strong connection to Essence, and while the deaths may not strongly affect a sensitive parallel Personality, a vague sense of grief may be felt.
       
      upstaate: is this life the main trunk and the rest are parallels?
       
      MichaelEntity:
      There are many Parallels that could be said to make up the "trunk," but we remind you that even the most remote of parallels branched from the trunk are as "real" as any other. We also remind you that while friends, family, etc., can exist within the same space, some may be in their "trunk" reality while others are not. It has been thought that the ideal parallels would be as close to your "trunk reality" as possible, since this is the path most harmonious with Essence's original ideas for the life, but that is not necessarily the case. The reason for this assumption is because most of the branching parallels have been created from the decisions and choices made from the level of Personality, which can be made as a result of ignoring Essence. Any reality that disconnects from Essence can be difficult, and it is not unusual that a “branch” parallel is created from that disconnection. The “trunk” realities are inherently connected to Essence, so the perception can be that one “should” be as close to that trunk as possible, then. What many do not consider is that if any "branch" reality seeks to invite Essence as part of that path, harmony and connection is generated as much for that Personality as any other.
       
      In all Parallels the Personality Overleaves are the same, but the use of the Overleaves may be very different.
       
      It does not matter from which parallel "you" exist. You are as real as any other. Invite Essence to participate and co-create, if you choose.
       
      We will conclude here. Our channel has had a long day of work with us.  We realize there are many directions and depths we can explore in this topic, and we will eventually do so with those of you interested.
       
      Good night to all of you.

      Ask Michael - May 6, 2018

      MEntity:  Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. *****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN*****

      Yes, Royce.

      Royce: Is there any validity at all with the NOFAP movement? Tried it for a bit, felt more in my body, creative...but still something feels silly about it all. Is there truth to directing sexual energy towards creative avenues? What does that even MEAN really? Thank you

      MEntity: The "NOFAP" movement has been called by many different names in various contexts from the realm of the arts or religions. This practice is mostly beneficial only in terms of self-discipline, which then translates into other areas of the life where it can be applied. When one consciously restricts access to something so easy to access and so pleasurable, the result can be one of higher disciplinary behaviors. However, there are many other ways to improve one's disciplinary mindset.

      For many, the self-restriction plays on unexamined guilt and shame and does nothing of benefit to the individual.

      Royce: Yeah. I was more curious regarding the avenue that was intented for redirecting sexual energy. How that even works at a base level. I see many people have tremendous guilt if they “ fall off the wagon” , which is ridiculous

      MEntity: It is meaningful to those who can create meaning from the practice, and it is meaningless for those who require no such restrictions to help bring self-discipline.

      As for the energy, this source is relatively unlimited and any restrictions or "redirections" are symbolic.

      Because the body does not have unlimited energy, the sexual pleasure can exhaust the body or place it in a state of recovery that can be distracting from productivity if there is indulgence, but this is not a matter of energy being depleted or in need of redirection. It is a matter of masturbation as pleasure vs masturbation as sedation or escape.

      Royce:  Beautiful! My theory that losing sperm has nothing to do with losing energy is true...rather...escaping has everything to do with losing energy. Thank you!

      MEntity: For many, the process of productivity is entrenched in the paradigm of Punishment vs Reward so there is an investment with the assumption that there will be a payoff and reward, and there is compounded guilt or shame as punishment.

      It is an archaic system that older souls tend to outgrow.

      NEXT

      Cong: Hi Michael, what are some of the most likely technology breakthroughs that can be applied to day-to-day life within the next 10 years? Can you tell us which countries and organizations are leading in these areas

      MEntity:  The most powerful breakthrough technologies that are most likely to affect and be applied in day-to-day life include: automated vehicles and drones; augmented reality that is wearable and alters the way information and communication are received and shared; inexpensive organ printing that allows for a bank of back up organs for those in need; interactive "smart" homes that are no longer self-contained, but networked to other homes of loved ones, friends, businesses/services etc. to allow for "instant visits" and interactions; instant gardens that can be planted and grown in nearly any climate and in any space that would allow for relief of dependency upon more complicated food delivery systems; waste reduction will continue to make an impact on daily lives as well as breakthroughs in energy technology that allows for massive storage and retrieval of energy in very tiny formats;  in general, the individual participation in solutions will make a tremendous impact on both waste reduction and energy improvements with in-home systems that change how waste is processed along with wearable or architectural kinetic technology that generates power. The impact is a more intimate participation in solutions rather than as a participant who is distanced from the benefit. 

      The Mature Soul paradigm is built upon participation. The systems that "protect" one from the benefit or harm of that system will continue to crumble and fail.

      There are too many powerful technological shifts of potential within the next 10 years, but we see the most powerful being in augmented reality, transportation/delivery systems, and food/waste/energy systems.

      These cannot be predicted with certainty as "everything" could simply collapse into darkness and reset humanity, but the current trajectory shows continued progression met with improved sense of responsibility.

      NEXT

      Kurtis: Hi Ms, you've spoken before about the 7 Emotions for the Emotional Center and the 7 Senses for the Moving Center.

      Kurtis: Could you then talk about the 7 Thoughts that stem from the Intellectual Center and their + and - Poles? I'm not sure what you'd call them, but basically the equivalent of the 7 Emotions for the Intellect.

      MEntity:  We think you are speaking of the 7 forms of Intelligence for the Intellectual Center. These are fairly widely known and delineated in teachings well beyond our own, though we may have some differences and details to add to understanding them. In general, these 7 ways of Thinking come as: INSTINCTIVE, MUSICAL, KINETIC, RELATIONAL, COMMUNICATION, SPATIAL, and LOGICAL. These are basic forms of Intelligence that each individual develops and they are not specific to any Role but there can be a loose correlative association as Server, Artisan, Warrior, Scholar, Sage, Priest, and King. That correlation is by symbolic association only, not necessarily in terms of built in assets for a Role.

      Kurtis: Oh I didn't know they were related! Thanks.

      MEntity: We wish to be clear in what you deem "related."

      To what do you refer?

      Kurtis: Well, I knew about the 7 Intelligences but I didn't know they tied deeply into the Intellectual Center.

      Kurtis: I thought they would've been Instinctive, for instance.

      Kurtis:  But having an Intellectual basis makes more sense I think.

      MEntity:  Yes, they are the PARTS of the Center.

      Kurtis:  I will have to look into & learn more about them in the future since I guess this is the end of my question time and we must move on.

      MEntity: Logic is the Intellectual Part of the Intellectual Center, and Musical is the Higher Emotional Part of the Intellectual Center, for example.

      We can delineate polarities in a dedicated session.

      NEXT

      Pia: When someone goes through a very painful life situation with another human for many years does it mean there is karma to be burned off? Is it necessary to go through the pain?

      MEntity:  There is not always Karma involved in painful situations, regardless of how lengthy the scenario. There are many reasons one can remain in a painful relationship or situation, including fear, obligation, duty, responsibility, familiarity, safety, security, lack of insight or education, lack of power or clear choices, etc.

      Pia: How does one know the difference? If karma or the choices you list?

      MEntity: As for pain, there is never a necessity for pain, but it is built into the nature of existence and is a navigational resource. Pain indicates resistance of some sort. When one punches you physically or emotionally, there is impact and resistance and pain. Pain is information.

      Pia: You are correct, pain is resistance...so stuff just happens in this life? How does one access that it is from essence and not just life happening?

      MEntity:  Karma will always have at its core the element of interference of choice. If your choices were removed or expanded to the point of interference, there may be Karma. In addition to the interference of choice is the lack of comprehension. There are many instances where one has the trajectory of choice interrupted but if there is understanding, there is no Karma. For example, if one had grand life plans and a loved one falls ill with a long-term terminal disease, this interferes with your choices, but it is wholly and completely understandable and Karma-free if that understanding is applied.

       Pia, it is true that "stuff just happens in life." This is called "Scathing." It is built into the gamble and risks of life. In many cases, painful events are often hooked into other more meaningful and beautiful events and for this reason many endure painful events for the payoff that comes in other areas of life.

      For example, if one wishes to get into shape and improve health, there are painful exercises of both body and mind that must be endured to get to the point of that improved health. The body and mind are benefited, but resistance was naturally involved in the process. Other examples are when one loves another person but that person has hurtful behaviors that you know love could heal. For some, the pain is worth the risk of helping that loved one.

      Pia: U are correct, there is a payoff, a heart opening ...how does one know the situation has gotten you further into knowing essence?

      MEntity:  Without knowing the details of your scenario, we cannot speak to it directly, but we can say if you have endured a painful experience, what you take from it is yours. It is up to you what that is. It is not always clear what that is and it may take time to see how you use the experience in healthy ways.

      Pia: Thank you for your wisdom

      MEntity: If you are using your experiences to improve your perspective, your relationships, your choices, and your capacity to love, you are moving further into Essence. If you are using your experiences against yourself, using experiences to distance yourself from others and divide yourself within, to swear never to trust again or take risks again, you may be moving away from Essence.

      We have said before and will say many times: You cannot always control what happens TO you, but you can always control what you DO with what happens to you.

      FINAL QUESTION - NEXT

      Uma: When we return to Tao after our lifetimes on the Physical Plane, we go through all the Planes on our way ‘back’. Do we do the same on our way here? We usually start talking about 1st born Infant Souls, but have those newborn fragments worked through the Planes on the way ‘down’ to the Physical in any way similar to the way we do on the way back?

      MEntity: Yes, you are correct. This is related to the process we describe in terms of the 7 Kingdoms of any Physical Plane and its species/lifeforms as a process of fragmentation from Energy Ring to Cadres, Entities, and then individual Essences/fragments. Consciousness explores these Kingdoms from Planes relative to that Kingdom. The Oceanic/Mineral Kingdom is where consciousness from the Messianic Plane explores; the Vegetation Kingdom is Buddhaic Plane consciousness; Insect Kingdom is Mental Plane; Cold-blooded Kingdoms are Akashic Plane; Birds are Causal Plane; Lower Mammals are Astral, and Higher Mammals are now anchored individual fragments in the Physical Plane that has potential for Sentience.

      Sentience is the profound anchoring of individual Essence into space and time, now with the journey of remembering her way Home.

      Until a planet is identified for exploration, this process of moving "down" through the Planes does not begin.

      We can explore this in further exchanges, of course. For now, we will conclude for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

      [Michael_Entity]
      Hello everyone. We are here.
       
      We'll start off with the weather forecast as usual and comment on your shared exploration of symbols on your discussion lists today. We had mentioned in our last couple of interactions that some of you were looking to ANIMALS as symbols for where you were heading in your exploration of probable futures. It is clear that many of you partaking in the discussions today on your lists will be moving further into your EXTERNAL worlds and lending your presence to actions required there. The symbolism in your debate and exchange over where animals stand in terms of rights was obviously not the level of discussion occurring for yourselves internally, with your own Essences, but rather gauging where you individually stand with how much you are willing to give OUTWARDLY this year. Your debate was symbolic.
       
      It is a difficult and enticing potential decision to be making yourselves available for outward interaction when you have mostly, for the past couple of years, (and some of you for the past four or five years), have been INWARDLY healing and improving. This period of time where your symbols showed up and where your reactions stood individually, brings up some very personal and deeply touched issues that have “just” been “healed” to a degree. What we mean by this is that any of you interacting with ANIMALS as symbols over the past few weeks, where animals were in dreams, or as in today's exchange in heated discussion, essence has suggested through these symbols that you might be “ready” to “go back out there”.
       
      Many of you have been bored with your EXTERNAL worlds giving intensity and focused lessons in your INTERPERSONAL worlds. Though interpersonal relationships are far from being completed in terms of lessons, it is a period of time currently where many Older Souls are being called outwardly to be present in the world for more impact. We will say this: As the exploration of symbols comes to a close sometime into next week, we have seen those of you who have brought ANIMALS to the forefront of your symbolism each having some sort of Teacher/Student Agreements unfolding. We would suggest you trust your inclinations to “reach out” to those who ask.
       
      Finally, March 12 through 14 appear to be pivotal days for most you gathered here. This is the overall window for your finalizing your decisions on an Essence and Personality level for:
       
      1. How available you will be,
      2. In what capacity you will be available,
      3. For what length of time you will be willing to take focus off of your personal lives.
       
      QUESTIONS?
       
      [k1] There are five us joining to gather on the internet to connect. Can you give us some advice on what the first focus might be? This is a regular committed group of students.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It appears to us that you have already decided that focus, which could be called “collective intuitive exposure”. Each of you are exposing to what capacity you are capable of intuitive EXPRESSION and RECEPTION, some of you will be receiving, while others EXPRESSING. Specifically we see 2 of you as expressing data that has been collected during your individual pursuits, while 3 of you are receiving, either through the 2 expressing or through their own heightened levels of development in your gatherings.
       
      TOPIC: Dreams & Symbols
       
      Dreams have become highlighted again, and usually are, during Parallel Shifts. This is one way with which to explore all of your options as ESSENCE and including Personality.
       
      When one enters into Dream State, it is almost always entered through the Instinctive Center. The Instinctive Center acts as a mediating ground for determining what is to be experienced while the body is resting.
       
      There are THREE levels or planes of Dreaming.
       
      Symbolic/Instinctive
      Astral/Lower Centers
      Out Of Body/Higher Centers
       
      Depending on the nature of the Waking State prior to sleeping, you will enter Instinctive Center, assimilate or evaluate your experiences, and move on to either Astral or Out Of Body.
       
      We will address the Symbolic Level first:
       
      It is easily determined when in the Symbolic level because there are simply SYMBOLS everywhere. This is the level where most find quite elaborate fantastical worlds and strange interactions and props. While in this level, simple concerns of the day or registered events not consciously noted are brought to light and processed, stored. This is also where all of your Sub personalities interact and exchange their perceptions of events. All of the symbols experienced here MEAN SOMETHING, but it is only through individual analysis that one can truly determine their meaning.
       
      We will note here that if one were to never discover the meanings of their internal symbols nothing would be lost except conscious interaction between inner and outer domains; it is certainly not NECESSARY to know the meanings of symbols in your dreams.
       
      Why we share this information with our Students is simply because many of you are in a place where “inner” and “outer” are closer together, therefore knowledge gained in one area means breakthrough on many levels.
       
      To move on: While in the Instinctive Center or Symbolic Level, depending on your particular Centering or Center “worked” that day, you will then move FROM the Symbolic through, for instance, the Emotional PART of the Instinctive Center. To elaborate then, the Instinctive Level or Symbolic Level would then have 7 “doors” through which to move. The most fantastical and indecipherable dreams are from the Instinctive PART of the Instinctive Center. You have remained in pure symbolism. This is helpful for processing experiences carried over from past lives, and certain parts of early life THIS lifetime. This is also the level with which many gain lucidity and claim Astral Projection, warning of dangers and fearful domains. This is due to the pure experience of Instinctive/Symbolic exploration while in a conscious state.
       
      Now the next level, the ASTRAL level, is where most of you go next.
       
      This is simply where you make your Agreements, learn from each other, play out Karma not requiring Physical presence, etc. The Astral Level is extremely fluid and still utilizes symbols (all levels do to a certain extent) and it is easily determined you have “been there” if upon rising you literally FEEL like you have “gone somewhere”. This is truly the realm of Essence. Where the Symbolic Level is about Personality and its Sub personalities, the ASTRAL is about Essence and its Personalities.
       
      We will move quickly to the next level, realizing again the constraints of your time.
       
      In rare designs of Personality and under certain conditions, Out Of Body experiences occur. This is able to occur since upon leaving the Symbolic, the consciousness moves through one of the Higher Centers. In this instance, literally, Essence AND Personality fuse and are able to sustain the Etheric Body in such a way as to remain within the Physical Plane without the constraints of a Physical reference. A fusion of energies rather rare within this time period of your species is experienced in this event. A more recent and not uncommon bridging of acceptance toward this level of dreaming is in Near Death Experiences.
       
      This is merely the scratched surface of this topic, but we will take questions now in regard to the topic.
       
      QUESTIONS.
       
      [M6] I dreamed I was with this chat group at a party in a beautiful and old apartment building. I felt I knew everyone and was excited to arrive. I had a specific task relating to a specific person. What level was this dream, and what did it signify about our relationships and work together?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Although we have not elaborated on the more specific levels, this would be, from our perspective, the Astral, of course, and Intellectual Substrate. The significance would be an angle with which you need to explore. This dream is incomplete in its exploration. We see this as a sequential dream.
       
      [Note from Otterly [aka Troy Tolley]: I hadn't heard of this before and will be getting more on it. We will be continuing this topic at the next meeting].
       
      [El] I just wanted to ask how one can remember the astral work?
       
      [Michael_Entity] The dream experts are correct. Upon rising, a simple noting of certain memories from dreaming, even if vague, is the most effective route toward Conscious Recall. When looking over your notes it is also an extended exercise for the conscious waking self to fill in the gaps with imagined experiences. This means, if you can't remember what ACTUALLY occurred, it is not amiss to pull up creative ideas based on what you wrote, drawing still from your unconscious/dreaming self. Be creative.
       
      [Jn] I have some rather similar dreams where I am in familiar places (in dreams, not in physical) and met with familiar people. Are these dreams contacts from entity mates? Are we meeting for our entity task? BTW, what's my entity task?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Many of these contacts, in your case, as we see it are more than your Entity Mates, they are your Essence's manifestations through time; past life selves. You are in a lifetime where gathering knowledge from a multitude of similar selves across time is a regular resource for your present self. So this is more of an element of Essence Task not necessarily an Entity Task although they are linked. The Task of your Essence (or one of your Personal Life Tasks) then would be “gathering personal definitions of strength through recollected knowledge”.
       
      [Mn] To which level would you liken Jung’s archetypes of the collective unconscious? And can you say anything about following his methods of dream interpretation, or is it better to devise your own?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Archetypes are Waking State Symbols. We have not covered this yet here. Though they DO spring from the Astral Collective ideas (or Unconscious Collective), they are still an outward manifestation. We will cover waking state symbols in our next exchange, and the levels involved. As far as Jung's method of dream interpretation, we find it heavily flawed in that it negates the individual to a great degree. There were clues here to levels of information about Collective Unconscious/Astral Collective, but to apply it to dream ANALYSIS moves one in a direction where his theories are less workable.
       
      [a1] On what level does lucid dreaming occur?
       
      [Michael_Entity] ALL levels. It can occur on any level. Lucid Dreaming is an umbrella term. To be LUCID simply means you are conscious while on the level of dreaming being experienced. There are levels in which it is more difficult to attain this state, particularly the Instinctive PART of the Instinctive Center. Although, ironically, this is the first level to gain notoriety for lucidity due to its bizarre landscapes.
       
      [fg] I've had many dreaming experiences, some of which I thought were conscious out of body experiences. From what was said here they seem on the other hand to be rare. Last night I had such a dream. Have these dreams I'm speaking of not been conscious OOB? Is it a case of just being lucid astrally speaking?
       
      [Michael_Entity] You are correct. Lucid Astral Dreaming is most often mistaken for Out Of Body. We will say that Lucid Astral Dreaming seems to the be the popular chosen route as a “springboard” for OOBEs. The experiences on the Astral, while lucid, gives the Personality some stability in its preparation for completely disengaging from Body. It does require extremely heightened consciousness to sustain the Etheric body while moving through the Physical Plane, or heavily sustained injuries “knocking” the Etheric out of the body, Personality intact. Note we did not say you have not had an OOBE, in fact you have. It is through your studies and examinations of the minute differences between the ASTRAL and your OOBE that you will then be able to maintain an “open door” out of the body, if you wish.
       
      [s5] Bridging of Acceptance and death scapes, how are these two subjects intertwined? Where does one's own creativity intrude?
       
      [Michael_Entity] If you are referring to our information about Near Death Experiences being a bridge to acceptance of “natural” OOBE, this is simply because your species has chosen to take this route of exposure for this realm. Those sharing their experiences are in a position of influence on a “grass roots” level. Though many contributing to this phenomenon are Late Baby Souls, they are nonetheless contributing to the acceptability of “something” valid in terms of consciousness beyond the body.
       
      [s5] I am just trying to understand which is which?
       
      [Michael_Entity] S, ‘which is which’?
       
      [s5] What is created vs what is real? Or once created does it become real?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The reason for your confusion comes from the fact that there is no defining boundary. That is why a valid form of dream recollection is to “make up” the parts you do not remember upon waking.
       
      We will take another question, then complete the session.
       
      [ha] Back to the OOBE line; I had an unusual experience where I felt like I was lying on top of myself, what would this indicate—OOB or lucid dreaming? Or something other?
       
      [Michael_Entity] This is the beginning of OOBE. You are becoming lucid “too quickly”, drawing yourself “back into” the body.
       
      [ha] Yes, I totally understand. I'm of two minds about whether to go or not.
       
      [Michael_Entity] We will share more of the details of these levels of dreaming for Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] to put on his web site. We can continue in our next exchange. We will close the session now. Good night.
