  • Shadow Fragments

    Kasia

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael: February 2016]

    Question: Hi Michael, could you please go into more detail regarding "shadow" fragments as previously discussed with Maureen?

    MEntity:
    We used the term "shadow fragments" to describe those fragments who tend to gravitate toward you across lifetimes and helps to "push your buttons" and "play the bad guy" in prompting true ownership of your own "shadow elements" that have become a pattern in avoiding.

    These fragments are not Karmically bound and are usually not in danger of generating Karma, but are provocative and triggering of your defenses in ways that invite self-reflection.

    Question: Do you mean "shadow elements" in the Jungian sense of the shadow self?

    MEntity:
    Anyone can play a "shadow" in your life, but there are some fragments who get very good at it and tend to not mind the risk of rejection during the life.

    These fragments can tend to be mathematically or harmonically dissonant to your own dynamic. This is sometimes true on an Essence level, but it is the combination of core mathematics and the correlative mathematics of the Overleaves that can bring about this dissonance, particularly when the Negative Poles are in favor.

    In other words, if your life is being lived in a kind of chord or note and pace, and you come across another who is dissonant to this, you can tend to prompt one another's shadow elements and play each other's shadow fragments.

    To explore this concept further, it could be helpful to study consonance and dissonance in music to see how these work in musical terms, since it is not much different.

    Some fragments lean quite strongly toward dissonance and enjoy it and embrace it with a kind of surrender, while others fight against it at all costs.

    There will rarely be a life without shadow fragments and dissonance. Learning to appreciate this unexpected form of music and relationship in life can bring great breakthroughs.

    And, yes, there is relevance to the Jungian concepts.

    Shadow Elements as used by us refers to those emotions that are based in stories told to the self, imprinting, and any defensive or reactionary state that is not based in valid events.

    True Emotions are those that are reflecting the processes of consequences and effects.

    A Shadow Element is a dominant emotion that "runs things" even as it is unrelated to actual events.

    For example, if someone is nice to you and your Shadow Element is Shame, you might immediately wonder what hidden agenda that person has in liking you, since Shame is running things.

    We can elaborate on the range of Shadow Elements and how Shadow Fragments work in a life in a dedicated session with us.

      OMW - Dec 15, 2012 - Your Aura (Part Two)
       
      Continuation from OMW: Your Aura (Part One)
       
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We may continue our discussion with you about the concept, validity, meaning, and utility of the Aura.
       
      [GeraldineB] Maureen wants to start today's session with a question, Michael
       
      MEntity: Then we will begin with that.
       
      [Maureen] I had my Aura photographed last weekend. It was the largest one they saw that day and it was the only one that reached 100% of their scale. Also it was deep green and blue in the 1st photo and 3 shades of blue from medium blue to Indigo in the 2nd photo after the energy healing. I suspect that the size of my Aura is related to being a Priest Essence and I was wondering about the colour. How does the Aura show up for each Role in Essence by size, colour, etc.
       
      MEntity:
      These are two, separate contexts of discussion presented here: that of the novelty for photographing "the aura," and the distinct and consistent characteristics of the aura as relative to each Role.
       
      The photography is an effect, not an aura. Currently, we know of no instruments capable of capturing the validity of the aura. Most photography that passes as "aura photography" are using any number of effects inherent in the process, and not relevant to that which is photographed.
       
      In other words, with or without you in the picture, there would be an "aura," even on a blank wall.
       
      [Maureen] They say it is "Advanced Kirlian" photography
       
      MEntity:
      We know this can be disappointing, but the claims for authentically capturing the aura are false.
       
      Kirlian Photography is valid in that it can capture the etheric field of an object, using high frequency electrical charges to "fill in" that field.
       
      If you were subjected to a current in your photography session, those currents were interpreted and translated in colors and ways that are inconsistent and irrelevant to the aura. With or without any healing in between, your "aura" in these photographs would be notably different, with little consistency, since the algorithms are random.
       
      [Maureen] OK
       
      MEntity:
      If you were not subject to any current, then nothing was photographed at all, but was an internal process, programmed.
       
      In any case, we can only share with you our perception and understanding of what appears to be offered up as "aura photography," but we encourage you to validate this through your own tests.
       
      What we would suggest this photography be used for is something similar to the synchronicity relied upon in a Tarot Reading, or any oracle of chance.
       
      [Maureen] What was interesting to me was what showed up in my 1st and 2nd Chakra -- was exactly what you had spoken to me about the day before Michael. The similarities were quite striking. But I don't want to digress
       
      MEntity:
      Flipping open a favorite book to read a "message of the day," or laying out a spread of cards pulled randomly from a deck, or the casting of iChing, or the creative interpretation of the shape left by tea leaves, all are valid ways to gain insight into the self, the moment, the future, problems, etc. The randomness of the photographing and color effects can be just as insightful and synchronistic.
       
      In other words, you could have pulled Tarot Cards for your aura reading and would have the same potential for synchronicity of meaning and relevance as you would in the random processing of color in a photography technique.
       
      [Maureen] That's good to know
       
      MEntity:
      Any creative and random process of synchronicity is beneficial for insight and meaning. It is a matter of assigning qualities to symbols, and then "reading" these.
       
      This is true of one's own practice in reading or seeing the Aura on his or her own.
       
      The imagination is essential here.
       
      [GeraldineB] As a minor aside, do those who run the Kirilian equipment know this to be fraudulent?
       
      MEntity: We would not consider it "fraudulent" as much as it is a flippant and eager desire for it to be valid by all involved. This is the modern equivalent of the "mood ring," which was once thought to have some relevant meaning, but was merely a response to one's physical body temperature. When it was thought that body temperature may be relative to certain moods, these colors held meaning.
       
      [GeraldineB] Maureen -- do you still want the Roles' Aura info?
       
      [Maureen] Yes I do! But Michael may want to do that as they go along?
       
      MEntity:
      Mood Rings are valid in that they can convey in color the range of temperature of the skin contact, and in much the same way these photographic techniques are portraying an effect in the process as it reacts to certain stimuli.
       
      Mood Rings and "aura photography" would do well to be considered novelties for insight, no different from the depth of insight that a "Magic 8 Ball" can bring, even if all of these are potentially valid for helping bring insight or help in making a decision.
       
      To elaborate upon this for a moment:
       
      Because these systems are based in randomness and synchronicity, it is vital that one have a clear system in place for how to use them.
       
      For example, even a "Magic 8 Ball" can be useful for helping you to make a decision, but only if you set up a system for synchronicity, such as "I will shake it only once for insight," or "I will shake it 3 times." If you continued to shake it, you may get any number of responses, in much the same way that shuffling a deck of cards will tend to bring you different cards. There must be a structure for the synchronicity.
       
      So if you choose to use a system of synchronicity for checking in on your aura and chakras, it is helpful to have a structure in place that is clear to you.
       
      [Maureen] It is interesting to me -- that my "colours" did correspond to the "system" that I learned years ago through Geraldine Smith- Stringer. So you may be on to something Michael! LOL
       
      MEntity: We may be.
       
      [Maureen] 🙂
       
      MEntity: Your system is quite clear in many ways.
       
      [Maureen] and what I got -- did relate to what we talked about the day before. Very interesting
       
      MEntity:
      Maureen, you have worked with synchronicity for a long time. It would not surprise us that there would be relevance.
       
      Continuing...
       
      [Maureen] well -- this has put everything upside down -- in a good way!
       
      MEntity:
      There are consistent frequencies that are inherent in the auras of each Role, which can then be "seen" or translated from the aura while in the Physical Plane.
       
      For most, the Aura is not something that will ever be seen, but it is still tangible to most in some way.
       
      Most of what is experienced as the Aura is the Emotional Body, and so it goes that most who experience the Aura in tangible ways is through the emotions.
       
      This means that most tangible relevance of the Aura comes among people through the spectrum that is of the Inspirational.
       
      The more resonant an aura to your own, the more inspired, enthused, attracted. The more dissonant the aura from your own, the more reduced those qualities.
       
      Most relationships of any significance are based in that spectrum of the aura, or emotional bodies, and how those resonate, far more than any other common ground.
       
      This is why one can be friends, or feel close to, even those who do not hold the same perspectives, philosophies, or physical characteristics and actions. Your auras are compatible, resonant. Or put another way: your emotional bodies, or what inspires you, is resonant.
       
      This emotional body, or the aura that is most often relevant, is a result of interaction between the Personality and Essence via the Chakras.
       
      The body is manifest and sustained via these portals, if you will.
       
      The physical body is a final emission, rather than the aura, or emotional body, but the emotional body is the most flexible common ground for all of the bodies.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] Michael, you said that the astral or emotional body is reflective of the emotional state and because of that can vary and change on a constant basis. Wouldn't that make relationships instable and volatile?
       
      MEntity:
      It could be said that the Causal (intellectual) Body is Essence, the Emotional/Astral Body is the Role, and the Physical Body is Personality.
       
      This then reflects the meeting ground between Essence and Personality in the Role.
       
      Nadine, we will respond to your question in a moment, as what we have to say next may address it.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] okay
       
      MEntity:
      There are 3 "layers" to the Emotional Body of significance: that layer that reflects the consistency and evolution of the Essence Role; that layer that reflects the realm of relationships and social agreements; and that layer that reflects the processes of the Personality.
       
      These layers cannot be compartmentalized, of course, but they are distinct enough to describe in this way.
       
      The Personality layer is as private as one wishes for it to be, in much the same way that anything about you can be.
       
      This layer fluctuates greatly, depending on your processes.
       
      These layers might be referred to as the Personal, Public, and True layers.
       
      The Public layer is where Agreements are made, is how one chooses to present his or her negotiated and navigated processes from the Personal layer, and tend to be more stable.
       
      The Personal layer can reflect the health of the body, whereas the Public can reflect the health of relationships.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] well, that would answer my question
       
      MEntity:
      These layers are also why there are Private and Public sets of Overleaves.
       
      The "True" layer is reflective of the Role in Essence.
       
      This is the backdrop for the other layers, or the more encompassing layer.
       
      True > Public > Personal > Body
       
      The True layer carries with it the frequency that is relative to the Role, and each Role is consistent in frequency, or color wave (as interpreted within the visible spectrum of the Physical Plane body).
       
      This frequency is relative to the primary portal, or chakra, for the Essence to manifest through the Physical Plane.
       
      Server - Instinctive - Red
      Artisan - Sexual - Orange
      Warrior - Solar Plexus - Yellow
      Scholar - Heart - Green
      Sage - Throat - Blue
      Priest - Brow - Indigo
      King - Crown - Violet
       
      It may occur to some that the Scholar "should be" the assimilative/instinctive, while the Server "should be" of the Heart, but this is not the case.
       
      This is because, as we have already established, the Emotional realm is the best meeting ground for all bodies, and Scholars know this.
       
      And Servers must have access to the very basic needs of any individual or group at any given time, and this is most easily accessed through the Instinctive Center, or Root Chakra.
       
      It would be rare for even the most "gifted" of those who read auras to, literally, see the True layer, but it can be read in the Public and Personal layers, if looked for.
       
      Essence Recognition, however, happens in this layer.
       
      When you "remember" someone, or "just know" that you already know someone, you are responding to the resonance that has been established in the True, or Essence, layer.
       
      When one dies, and the Physical Body is released, these layers of the Emotional Body continue.
       
      This emotional body is the meeting ground of all of your Personalities across time, then.
       
      Each new lifetime and Personality adds to this body.
       
      The most differentiated layer is the Personal, but the Public is shared across those lifetimes of resonance, and become what you consider your "past lives" when you "remember" one.
       
      We will pause here for a moment to ask if our students are feeling a sense of validity to this exploration of the aura, and the relevance of the Emotional Body.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] yes, I do.
       
      [Diane_HB] Yes
       
      [Maureen] I think I will draw a diagram so I will get a better picture of it! but yes -- it's coming to me
       
      MEntity: With some examination, you may find it is quite consistent with a great deal of what has come to be explored in our system, and sheds light on some long-established elements.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] I have a question about the public layer being shared across lifetimes:
       
      [GeraldineB] I have questions about the emotional body -
       
      [Nadine_AP2] as one shares this layer with ones future lives, too, would one be able to "remember" future lives, too?
       
      MEntity:
      Yes.
       
      It would be more accurate to say "potential future lives," as from any given point in time, the "future" is not set, even if it has already happened.
       
      [GeraldineB] That makes no sense, Michael
       
      [Diane_HB] LOL
       
      MEntity:
      For example: "you" are here, now, in "the future" of a past version of you in this lifetime. Therefore, "you" have "already happened." That does not mean that a past version of "you" will make the choices that lead to "you."
       
      You are only the potential for the past.
       
      [Maureen] that makes sense
       
      [Nadine_AP2] I think I get it.
       
      MEntity:
      Think of it this way:
       
      At any given moment, you are at the hub of potential, both in past and future terms. Your memories are an organization of events that are relevant to you at that moment, but are not necessarily linear to you, but may have come from various versions of you in the past. Some memories are from a consistent and rather linear timeline, some are not.
       
      [GeraldineB] Ok -- I'm slowly discovering this aspect with the project
       
      MEntity: The same is true of your imagination for the future. It is a spectrum of possibilities that can only snap into shape once "you get there." But, there are many versions of you that will get into your future, just as there are many versions of you that are your past.
       
      [Maureen] I love this!
       
      [GeraldineB] "will get there" is not the same thing as "already has been there"
       
      [Maureen] The plastic metaphysical man
       
      MEntity:
      So when you "remember" or imagine the future, you are tapping into some of the most relevant probabilities, and this can tend to happen the strongest when that "you" in the future is remembering "you." There is a resonance.
       
      We realize this can be complicated to comprehend, but we assure you that your Essence manages this much better than any one Personality.
       
      [Nadine_AP2] Lol, I can imagine that!
       
      [GeraldineB] That is very good -- Essence is a far better switchboard operator than I
       
      MEntity:
      What we have been sharing with each of you is mostly about the functioning and technical aspects of the aura.
       
      What we will do now is share with you what we see as the most practical ways to use this information:
       
      To learn to "read" your aura, we suggest implementing a synchronistic system, as mentioned before. Using Tarot Cards, a set of cards of color, or any other system of insight, can be helpful for looking at your personal layer of the aura.
       
      Creating a clear structure for that synchronicity is vital, so it would do you well to have your techniques clarified before using these systems.
       
      Paying attention to your feelings can help you to have the most direct insight as to what is going on in your Personal layer of the aura.
       
      Establish color associations with your feelings, or look up systems that associate colors with feelings, and learn to manage these with your imagination.
       
      By this we mean that you can help yourself adjust your emotions to be more manageable if you learn the hues and tones that help transform them.
       
      For instance, Red might be what you associate with Anger, so you might imagine adjusting the darker Red of anger to being a more pleasant hue and tone, so that it is brighter, lighter, and provoking of a more productive emotion.
       
      The reason this can be helpful is because if the management of emotion is within the same color range, it is not a denial of the original feeling, but a way to move it into something more like a positive pole.
       
      If you feel sadness and have associated this with a dark blue, you may adjust the color to that which provokes a different feeling of calm and peace.
       
      It is never beneficial to ignore, suppress, or deny any feeling, but if one can move that feeling into something useful, the more "negative" feeling gains usefulness rather than simply being a weight or pressure.
       
      Most "negative" feelings are born of helplessness, so to transform that feeling into something useful helps that negative feeling to have been informative, instead of debilitating.
       
      [Maureen] Michael -- will you be covering the Causal (Intellectual) Body today? and if there is time -- would you be able to do a summary of what was covered today?
       
      MEntity: You may not be able to see this in your aura, but that is moot. You need not literally see it to know its impact. One cannot see a soul, either, but it is in effect, regardless.
       
      [Maureen] I like your system of "managing" or transforming emotions rather than suppressing them. It is most helpful.
       
      MEntity:
      That process is not magical, and can take practice, but it can be quite effective. In most cases, at first, one might realize just how attached one is to a feeling, and how unwilling one might be to let it transform, but once one has done so once or twice, the benefits become more apparent.
       
      Absurdly surreal symbolism in dreams is another way to tap into your Personal layer of the aura. Learning to interpret those symbols in the dream can lend great insight into what is going on for you in the aura.
       
      Dreams that tend to have a lot of interaction and communication, even if in the midst of surreal symbolism, are often reflective of the Public layer of the emotional body. Working out Karma and Agreements often happens in dreams, then.
       
      Checking in with the health of your relationships can also help you to gain insight into what is going on with your Public layer.
       
      If there is a lot of dissonance and distance, your Public layer may be in a protective or defensive state, which keeps people at bay, or attracts those attracted to dissonance.
       
      If there is a receptiveness in this layer, it would tend to be reflected in your capacity to find common ground with even the most unfamiliar, distant, and even dissonant of peoples, while holding great appreciation for those who resonate.
       
      Many of our students relate almost entirely from this layer, as it helps to transcend distance and time.
       
      [Maureen] I can see that -- for many of us
       
      MEntity:
      For those who begin to Manifest Essence, then the True layer, or the Essence layer comes into play.
       
      For those who wish to see the effects of this, it tends to show up in what is provoked from others. For instance, Sages tend to help provoke expression, communication, and active use of the Throat Chakra and all that this entails. Priests tend to help provoke inspirational vision, intuition, and active use of the Brow Chakra and all that this entails. Warriors tend to provoke the action, stimulation, productivity, and active use of the Solar Plexus Chakra and all that this entails. And so on.
       
      When one is Manifesting Essence, one tends to be attractive to those who want the effects of that Role, and are attracted to those Roles who help to bring benefit to what one wishes to enhance.
       
      For example, if a Manifested Priest and Sage are attracted to one another (and by "attracted" we do not imply sexual or romantic attraction), then it might show up as the Priest gaining more beneficial access to her communication set of skills while the Sage gains more beneficial access to intuitive and visionary perceptions.
       
      These can show up as obvious benefit, or show up as challenges that bring that eventual benefit.
       
      Watching how one feels one is benefited by another, or how one benefits someone else, can help to give you an idea of to what degree you are Manifesting Essence, and in True Personality.
       
      This does not mean you will always get along, but the benefit is there in some way, to some degree, and it is usually fairly specific.
       
      Much of what we had to say can be said at any other time, as we focused today on our response to the question presented for this exchange. We will not address the Causal Body here, or synopsize, as time is limited. But we feel that the question dove-tailed quite beneficially to all that we might have to say about the nature and concept of the aura.
       
      Good day to each of you. We must conclude here for now.

      Note from (presumably) Geraldine:
      I recommend rereading the OMW: Your Turning Points, which contains the information on our multiple bodies.
       
      During further research, I discovered the following video which isn't about auras, per se, but really deals with many of the modern illnesses for humans and the animal kingdoms. It's worth a viewing and a contemplation as we may be causing much of our ongoing "stress" issues completely inadvertently due to our desire for instant.
       
      Resonance - Beings of Frequency (documentary film)
          Colors Meditation, Aura, and Healing Levels
      Reality Creator Reference Book
      This article is from the Hermes Reality Creator Series Books and or upcoming books.
      It is © copyright 1995 - 2012 by Tom DeLiso / Hermes Trismegistus.
      Please follow the copyright link for additional copyright information.   The Meditation/Dream level helps you to understand a color or a colored object seen in a dream or meditation. The Aura level helps you to understand the purpose of that color within the human energy field. The Healing level is the way the color works when applied to healing the body or spirit.   WHITE Meditation/Dream: Truth of the highest order. Enlightenment. Energy in its most pure form. Divinity.
      Aura: Never a predominate color in the aura unless you are looking at an angel or an ascended master. However a white layer in the aura or a layer with white streaks indicates a person following the will of God and being directed by it.
      Healing: Charging the energy field, bringing peace and comfort, divine light or whole white light entering.
       
      VIOLET

      Meditation/Dream: Conjures feelings of enchantment, wishes fulfilled, of dreams made fact. Transformation of the self or of some aspect of your life into a higher form. Connecting to your higher self. The "I am God" presence.
      Aura: This color in the aura is the highest vibration for the human spirit. A person who is in command of his life and energy. A visionary. Violet with a gold outline is a person who is one with spirit and God and is in service to mankind.
      Healing: Connecting to spirit, the opening of the third eye, the clearing of the head, purging the auric field of distortions.
       
      BLUE

      Meditation/Dream: Blue is the energy of pacification, self protection, sweetness and tenderness, and of loyalty. It represents contentment and reunion with the Earth. 
      Aura: Blue in the aura represents a teacher or a very sensitive person. They are kind and caring and will do much to help others grow.
      Healing: Cooling, calming, restructuring of the etheric level, taking away pain when doing deep tissue work and work on bone cells. Blue also helps to expand a person's field to connect to his/her life task.
       
      GREEN

      Meditation/Dream: Taken most directly from nature, these hues often are expressive of constancy, self-affirmation, security, self-esteem, and of deeply rooted pride. A healing meditation may contain green, as it is the color of new growth.
      Aura: Green in the aura signals a very intellectual person who may possess healing gifts. At the very least it signals a nurturer personality and one that will do what they can to make another comfortable.
      Healing: Charging the heart chakra, balancing the aura, general healing, sometimes charging the aura to ensure well being and health, and to remove illness.
       
      YELLOW

      Meditation/Dream: Representative of cheerfulness, radiance, relaxation and release from burdens. It is warmth of sunlight, the halo around the Holy Grail. Yellow is hope.
      Aura: Yellow, like green also signals a very intellectual person, but this person does not possess healing gifts. They are powerful thinkers, and idea makers.
      Healing: Charging the brow chakra, clearing a foggy head.
       
      ORANGE

      Meditation/Dream: Symbolic of fire, of expanding energy, power and the omnipotence of the sun and the majesty of sunsets. Energy to accomplish one's goals.
      Aura: A very ambitious person who needs to succeed and has the energy to do so.
      Healing: Charging the auric field, increasing sexual potency, increasing the immunity system.
       
      ROSE

      Meditation/Dream: In meditation or dreams represents self-love, also resurrection. The color of flesh, of sensuality and emotion, romantic love, and supportive love.
      Aura: A person in-love with another or in-love with one's created environment.
      Healing: Subtle healing and love. This energy puts back a sense of self love and self worth.
       
      RED

      Meditation/Dream: Red represents the will to achieve, energy, intensity, and struggle. It is also appetite, desire, and reproduction. It is life in the "now."
      Aura: People with mostly red in their aura are fiery spontaneous people. They are often fearless, or appear that way. Red's make good police and firemen and soldiers. Red will also be found in the normal aura for brief periods during great anger or passion.
      Healing: Supercharging the auric field, burning out cancer, warming cold areas.
       
      GOLD

      Meditation/Dream: Divinity transforming lower energy to upper energy. Spiritual power in all aspects operating for the greater good.
      Aura: Gold in the aura is rarely a predominate color, however you can find it as an outline to another color, like violet. Gold as an outline in the aura adds the dimension of spiritual nobility and rank, a person that has and is achieving great spiritual progress and work.
      Healing: The restructuring of the seventh layer of the aura (the God self).
       
      GRAY

      Meditation/Dream: Grey in a dream or meditation signals excessive energy being burnt off. it is also a lifting of intense fear or some life-threatening situation.
      Aura: A person whose life-force is leaking away due to unhappiness, sadness, depression, or illness. With the color black a person with advanced cancer.
      Healing: Only used during a healing when excessive energy must be removed because the person can't handle it.
       
      BLACK

      Meditation/Dream: In the shinny black variety it is a closing in of energy and resource to protect oneself. The velvet or shinny black is not a negative color to get in a meditation, especially if you are feeling burnt out. A velvet black light opens up the Aura so that it can accept higher colors.
      Aura: A dull lifeless black in the aura shows a person who is very far removed from the constructive forces of the universe. With the grey streaks, it shows a person being destroyed by his or her own separation from God. Note: Wearing black is very common and it opens up the human aura to all the other colors. Many students of the occult like to wear black for this reason. Wearing black also protects your energy from leaking out to others.
      Healing: The velvet black color is used to bring a patient into the state of grace, silence, and peace with God.
       
      SILVER
       
      Meditation/Dream: Silver relates to the moon, the subconscious, and the female aspect of the universe.
      Aura: Not a color usually present in the aura in any great quantity.
      Healing: Used to purge the auric field and to charge the sixth level of being (karmic level), to remove old karma that is no longer needed.
       
      INDIGO

      Meditation/Dream: Purple or indigo in a dream or meditation signals some kind of psychic power or ability or some kind of psychic force.
      Aura: In the aura shows a very intuitive person, a person with prepackaged abilities that come from before birth to be used physically in this incarnation. These people tend to be square pegs as far as society and fitting in is concerned. This will change as more of the current generation is born with this color and takes its place in society.
      Healing: The opening up of intuition or of some psychic ability. It is also used to prepare the individual of the entering of the divine spirit.
       
      CRYSTAL

      Meditation/Dream: Transformation into a new form or a higher energy state. Crystals amplify and a crystal light will amplify your own energy to a higher level.
      Aura: A crystal aura around a person is clear but will have other colors intermingled with it. This is the 'chameleon' aura. People with this aura will take on the attitudes and ways of those around them. The aura of others becomes their own aura. It is important for these crystal people to only surround themselves with the best influences possible, for obvious reasons. A person with a crystal aura must learn how to separate themselves from everybody else.
      Healing: Sometimes used to fill in an empty spot where some energy was removed, so that nothing unwanted takes it place, till the person's energy field can replace the vacuum with its own energy field.

      OMW - Apr 21, 2012 - Equality in Relationships
       
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      Review of assignment to consider during the OMW:
       
      Make note of at least one person you truly adore, even if it's not unconditional and even if it's sappy and aching and longing... Make note of at least one person who is annoying beyond all fuck's sake and that you are "forced" to deal with on a regular basis At least one person who is just all around pleasant and has no charge one way or the other Now think of your pet peeve (just one for now) that eclipses the presence of the other person, even if they are great, but if they trigger that pet peeve, it's a challenge Now think of one outstanding quality that, if someone tends to exemplify, you find you are okay with him or her, even if he or she isn't that great of a person
      [MEntity]
      Hello to each of you. We are here. We will discuss the subject of Relating today, and how this is built upon your Equality.
       
      First, we will discuss the nature of Relating, and what it means.
       
      Relating is often left only to describe that with which you find compelling commonality, but it also includes that with which you find repelling differences, and that with which you find comforting.
       
      When someone says that he "relates to that," it usually means he has found commonality and resonance in a positive way.
       
      However, we suggest expanding the understanding of Relating to include that which you find repellent, and that which you find comforting. The latter is not so difficult to include, and may already be included, but we consider it to be fairly ignored in terms of Relating.
       
      For instance, one may find comfort in her relationship with a mate, a mother, or even a group, but not really find compelling commonality.
       
      Relating through comfort is not often included in the "I can relate to that" use and understanding of the word.
       
      So we will then define RELATING as: any interaction of significance
       
      The more significant the interaction, the more likely that it is a RELATIONSHIP.
       
      You may Relate to a cashier in a store, but you would not necessarily have a Relationship with him or her.
       
      If you saw that same person every day, you may find that you do bring your Relating into the realm of Relationship, and that would depend upon the level of significance, which requires higher proportions of the components of time and space.
       
      For now, we will focus on Relating, because this would include all Relationships, as well.
       
      But we think it is helpful to understand that even the kind exchange with the stranger, or the annoying exchange with the stranger, is Relating, and therefore, is a matter of examining Equality.
       
      For now, consider that what we share about Relating will apply to your Relationships, as well.
       
      Relating is actually a Triad of Attraction, Repulsion, and Comfort. ALL Relating has all of these facets inherent, which is more evident in Relationships, of course, but ALL Relating has all three, as well.
       
      Your Relating, and your Relationships, can be found to sorted into one of these facets as a primary emphasis. Those Relationships that last the longest can tend to be obvious in their containing all three of these, but they will still tend to emphasize one facet over others.
       
      Relating tends to quickly fall into one of these as an emphasis, and often never see the other facets.
       
      If Relating falls outside of this Triad, then it is Insignificant.
       
      The cashier will either be a pleasant experience from the Attraction Facet, or it will be a challenging experience from the Repulsive Facet, or a kind and nurturing experience from the Comforting Facet, or if you barely notice each other, it will be entirely insignificant.
       
      If a Relationship is to have any wholeness, it will have all three of these facets fulfilled in a rather cyclical manner.
       
      We wish to clarify here that Relating DOES NOT include instances where one imposes upon another. To some degree, the information here can still be helpful, but if one is raped, it will not necessarily be helpful to consider how you are "equal" with your rapist.
       
      The older soul may be able to apply this information in those instances, but for those any younger, the discussion of boundaries is still relevant and important. For the older soul, boundaries begin to blur, and even the worst of others is considered a part of the puzzle of the larger Context, and in those cases, this information can be helpful.
       
      For the older soul, it tends to be more important to extract value from the experiences of violation than it is to uphold a permanent barrier, boundary, and defense.
       
      Either way is valid, and the information here is not to usurp your inclination. This information is offered only as a tool that you may choose to use, or not.
       
      We will pause here for a moment to hear from you: Is everyone finding the information, so far, to be valid when considering your interactions? And do any of you have questions about what we have shared, so far?
       
      [BA] I think so.
       
      [NS] In MFM or MMFM, you were quoted as saying something like "you are most equal to your essence twin" I am paraphrasing...
       
      [NS] Was that accurate channeling? If so, what did you mean by this?
       
      [MEntity]
      Whether we were quoted accurately, or not, this would be true. On an Essence Level, the fragment who is one's Essence Twin is the epitome of the Triad, to its most extreme. One cannot escape the reflection when with an Essence Twin, and while all three Facets would tend to be in obvious effect, there is very little rest in one Facet over another, which can be exhausting and intense for the Personalities.
       
      This is not to say that this same kind of intensity and extreme cannot be had with other fragments, but that this is the one that is bound by Agreements and mathematics.
       
      [LM] mathematics?
       
      [MEntity] If an Essence Twin relationship is to be sustained, it usually ends up requiring various "breaks" in the cycles to help each other reset, digest, and implement what was learned from one another.
       
      [NS] By mathematics, I think they mean the position within your respective entities that bind you through resonance...
       
      [NS] True in my experience! I am at a "breaking point" right now! lol
       
      [MEntity]
      LM, NS would be correct. Essence Twins share Casting and the same "Raw Number," which is part of what binds them, as they will be part of what draws the Entities together in the next Planes.
       
      We have not heard from everyone, but if there are no other responses, we will continue.
       
      [LM] is this also why i have not incarnated at the same time as my ET for a while?
       
      [MEntity]
      LM, that is often the case. It gives great relief to both when one has a body, and the other does not.
       
      We will talk about Equality now.
       
      [MW] oh wait - does relating mean in person relating? or online too, etc
       
      [MEntity]
      MW, our definition should help to answer that question.
       
      Any interaction of significance would include a spectrum of media for exchanges, all of which would be physical. Even your online world is a physical connection, a physical exchange, and if there are interactions of significance, then these would be Relating.
       
      By "Equality," we mean that both parties are in the interaction for some kind of personal benefit.
       
      There is no Relating without personal benefit.
       
      That is not to say it is selfish, but that it is simply the nature of Relating.
       
      [MG] I find it interesting - when in relationship with someone online -- they will often refer to others in their life as "friends" -- while ignoring the obvious "friendship" that is in place online -- as well!
       
      [NS] That makes me think of a certain person here on TLE that seems to discount the friendships and support here...although I get it...
       
      [MEntity]
      That person may be speaking of Relationships, not Relating. Relationships require the components of mutual Time and Space in some way.
       
      For some, enough Time can help to nurture a valid Relationship; for others, enough Space can, even if there is little Time together. And for some, both are necessary in high quantities before they will acknowledge that there is a valid Relationship.
       
      However, one's preference for defining a Relationship will have no bearing on whether one is actually in one, or not, and if there is any interaction of any significance, then you are Relating.
       
      Returning to the subject of Equality: no Relating happens without personal benefit.
       
      That "personal benefit" is described by your Goal.
       
      Your worst experiences of Relating, and your worst Relationships; your best experiences of Relating, and your best Relationships; your most comforting of exchanges in Relating, and your most comforting Relationships, are all to help you fulfill your Goal.
       
      In your most confused or elated of exchanges of significance, if you were to keep in mind how it plays into your capacity for fulfilling your Goal, a great deal of clarity immediately can come to mind and heart and body.
       
      The most irritating of people, and the most charming, and the most comforting, are in some way catering to your aim to fulfill your Goal.
       
      And the same would be for your position in that person's life.
       
      This is not to suggest that your obnoxiousness or cruelty or harm is justified by your presuming that the other person is "benefitting" from it.
       
      We are sharing with you what YOU can do to understand how others benefit you, so that empowerment and comprehension and peace can come to your Relating on a daily basis, as well as come to your Relationships.
       
      With this information, you may find that there are solutions that have been right under your nose, so to speak, for how to handle, how to make sense of, and how to make choices regarding your Relating and Relationships.
       
      The Triad takes effect in this way: Attraction tends to Stabilize or Support your Goal; Repulsion tends to Accelerate or Expand your Goal; and Comfort tends to Heal your Goal.
       
      By "your Goal," we should say "your experiences gained from the aim for that Goal."
       
      QUESTION: Do each of you see how your Relating, and Relationships, benefit your Goal?
       
      [NS] oh, yes!
       
      [LM] yes, definitely
       
      [MG] I'm beginning to
       
      [BA] I'm chewing on it
       
      [LM] my goal is Acceptance. this makes sense
       
      [GLB] Yeah, Repulsion tends to turn me into an asshole in reaction -- Attraction puts me into more positive pole
       
      [MEntity]
      BA, when one is in the Negative Poles, there is a "harder" time of this, regardless of where in the Triad the Relating is.

      Before we continue, if there are any personal examples that need to be explored, we can do that now. Each of you may state your Goal, and we will help to describe how this would show up.
       
      [MG] Acceptance
       
      [NS] So, just to be clear on this...Recently, I have been repulsed by my ET...something he did triggered me. This is supporting me in fulfilling my goal of FLOW/PEACE/FREEDOM...in that it sort of "forces" a consciousness around how I can create FLOW/PEACE/FREEDOM?
       
      [GLB] Discrimination
       
      [BA] Growth
       
      Goals of Acceptance and Discrimination
       
      [MEntity]
      We will begin with Acceptance, which is probably all-too-familiar with the concept of how Relating and Relationships challenge, support, or heal the experiences gained from the aim for the Goal.
       
      Acceptance, in its simplest terms, is the aim for learning how to say "Genuinely say YES."
       
      [LM] my goal is acceptance. I have a "friend" which at first I wanted to be accepted by her but she had jealousy issues with me and dissed me. now she wants me to show up for her and I am having second thoughts about even wanting to be around her.
       
      [MEntity]
      For those in Acceptance, Relating will tend to bring about experiences that ask, "now, how can I say Yes to this?"
       
      What those in Acceptance tend to do is say Yes to so many things in the beginning that they lose the actual meaning of the word. This is usually done before gaining consciousness, or "waking up."
       
      Eventually the question becomes, "how can I say Yes to this, and mean it?"
       
      If you cannot say Yes, and mean it, then you are in Ingratiation.
       
      If you expect others to say Yes, regardless of whether they mean it, then you are in Ingratiation.
       
      The irony for Acceptance is that one must learn to say No before one can truly say Yes.
       
      It is often painful, literally, for Acceptance to say No, but this changes to being comforting when the honesty in saying Yes is seen to be so beneficial to all involved.
       
      Every Goal will swing to extremes before centering and stabilizing. Acceptance tends to start at the far YES, and then swing to the far NO, before stabilizing into rightful honesty.
       
      In general, the life will tend to be be segregated into compartments for the Attractive, Repulsive, and Comforting areas of Relating and Relationships, though there will be overlap, of course.
       
      Where Acceptance finds the most Repellent, the aim is either to learn to say Yes to that which has been difficult to accept, or to say No until you can. Acceptance cannot truly Accept, or move into Agape, when there is no discernment. This is why it is paired with Discrimination.
       
      As Acceptance and Discrimination are on the Truth Axis of the Overleaf System, these Goals are an aim toward honesty and integrity.
       
      The "truth" is often nuanced, so it is not necessary to be conclusive in your Yes, or your No, but to be clear where you can say Yes, and where you can say No. The key would be in whether it is Truthful.
       
      As Acceptance and Discrimination are Expression Axis Goals, this would also require communication in some way. You cannot presume that another will "get you," or that they "should know."
       
      More than any other Goals, these two need to EXPRESS, put into form, the truth that is part of their Goal.
       
      The more defensive and reactionary, the less one is being honest. When one is honest, there is a peacefulness, even if awkwardness, about the decision to say No or Yes, because it is the truth.
       
      For Discrimination, the swing of extremes tend to be reversed so that the life starts with many decisions already having been made for the fragment. Discrimination is the process of refining one's capacity to choose, and this could translate into learning to say with integrity and honesty, NO.
       
      Those in Discrimination will often start with a great deal of NO around them, or simply find ways of avoiding saying YES.
       
      There is no Sophistication to their process of choosing, but, instead will simply inherit Rejection, find Rejection from others, or Reject all but a very slim sliver of existence.
       
      This is the embrace of NO without any integrity or honesty, no Truth.
       
      Eventually this swings to the extreme of having to be in situations where one now realizes how often one must say YES in order to truly mean NO.
       
      Again, this requires honesty and communication.
       
      To simplify and be more specific to Relating: For those in Acceptance, one is learning to bring kindness and acceptance to your communication when saying No, and to rise beyond ingratiation and obligation when saying Yes. For those in Discrimination, one is learning to bring clarity and refinement to one's communication when saying Yes, while rising above rejection and reaction when saying No.
       
      Goals of Growth and Re-evaluation
       
      For Growth, Relating is all about extracting Meaning. When one forces or imposes that Meaning, it can move into Confusion. When one creates that Meaning, and allows it to change, there is Evolution.
       
      For those in Growth, all Relating tends to have "some kind of meaning." Growth tends to swing in its extremes from "what does this mean about me?!" to "wow, that says a lot about you!" to a balance of shared Meaning that is nuanced and inclusive, rather than divided and exclusive.
       
      It is paired with Re-evaluation, because Growth often requires a return to simplicity for help and returning to Meaning, or Evolving, through Relating.
       
      [Question] What is the difference between "forcing" or imposing meaning and creating it?
       
      [MEntity]
      Forcing is prejudiced and decided before the Relating has even started. Creating is to use the ingredients available in the Relating.
       
      Confusion leaves out many of the ingredients that Relating, or a Relationship, provides. Evolution uses all of the ingredients that are available.
       
      In other words, "you mean something to me, you evolve me, only if you do so on my terms," and sometimes, "I mean something to you, I evolve you, only if I do so on your terms." Evolution, however, is "we mean something, we evolve each other, only if we do so on our terms, and those may shift and change."
       
      In terms of Relating, Growth then would be learning to Create Meaning when aiming to Evolve, and to Allow Meaning when rising above Confusion.
       
      Goal of Flow
       
      In terms of Relating, Flow is the process of learning to NAVIGATE.
       
      The extremes for Flow tend to be that one will swing to the extremes of letting anyone and everyone else be the navigator, steering the flow of the life. You simply hang on.
       
      This is then countered by an extreme swing toward taking complete control of that steering, and anyone who cannot keep up will fall simply fall off, or be left behind.
       
      Both these extremes tend toward Inertia, which is either keeping a momentum that never seems to change, or running in place, like running upstream.
       
      When it comes to Relating, Flow can often be heard saying such things as "no matter how hard I try..."
       
      Inertia comes from presuming that an aim should be clear, tried, and true, mapped out, and clarified. Freedom comes from fluidity, flexibility, and guidance. The map is a guide, not a trajectory.
       
      Your Goal is partnered up with all other Goals because it is often necessary to recalibrate, aim differently, navigate various paths, often on multiple levels of the life.
       
      True Freedom requires structure. And so it is when it comes to Relating.
       
      In simple terms, then, Flow is learning to provide structure when in Freedom, and learning to change course when in Inertia.
       
      Freedom is not a free-falling abstract state. It has footing.
       
      Without that footing, there is Inertia.
       
      And so it is that most who are in Flow will experience Relating as a process of creating or finding that footing.

      We described to you the Triad, which is the FUNCTION of Relating, or how Relating functions, but the PROGRESSION of Relating tends to be through the process of REVEAL, AMPLIFICATION, REVELATION, and INTEGRATION.
       
      For most instances of Relating that is not a Relationship, one of these four stages would be exemplified.
       
      This is because Relating is not simply an external progression, it is an internal progression. You Relate to You.
       
      And you do so through others.
       
      Depending upon where you are in the progression of Relating to yourself, your Relating may tend to show up in these various stages.
       
      [Question] do you mean Personality to Essence and/or Personality to sub-Personalities?
       
      [MEntity]
      We will keep it simple here as self to self, as a more holistic phrasing, inclusive of all of these variations on "self."
       
      The stranger who smiles at you can tend to reflect where you are in your progression with yourself. That stranger's smile can elicit a Reveal, Amplification, Revelation, or Integration. We will define these terms now.
       
      Reveal is the display of commonalities, whether these are differences or common ground. Amplification is the honing in on those differences or that common ground. Revelation is realization that what was experienced was just what was needed. And Integration is the use of that realization, or the ownership of that Revelation.  
      So the stranger's smile can be playing into any one of these stages. For example, you may be having a hard time learning to love your appearance or your body, and depending on how you are Relating to yourself, you may find that smile to be mocking, pitying, or healing.
       
      If you are in a mocking relationship with yourself, then you will find that the smile Reveals to you that others feel the same way. You may find that it Amplifies what you already fear. You may find that it to be a Revelation in that someone has actually honed in on your vulnerability. You may find that it confirms what you thought was true all along and you Integrate that.
       
      If you are in a loving relationship with yourself, or attempting to, then the smile can mean Reveal to you that others are offering kindness and nurturing, too. Or it can serve to Amplify and propel what you are already trying to do for yourself. Or it can surprise you that this smile is just what you needed that day. Or it bring Integration of the truth that you can be appreciated just as you are.
       
      Because of time constraints we realize we are not going to be able to give elaborate examples, but these are a start. The point being that where you are with yourself often determines where others are brought in to serve that.
       
      In terms of Relationships, this is much more obvious.
       
      Common Ground is Revealed, then Amplified, and then the Revelation that you have learned something from it, and then the Integration of what was learned.
       
      Keep in mind that Common Ground includes differences, even vast differences that cause conflict. That is your common ground.
       
      In those terms, you are Equals. You are willing participants in an attempt to learn, to fulfill your Goals.
       
      Knowing this, you can ask yourself, "how can my Relating, or "how can my aim to fulfill my Goal help better my Relating, or Relationship?"
       
      Keep in mind that your Relationships, the longer they are around you in time, and the closer they are to you in space, will cycle through the functioning of the Attraction, Repulsion, and Comfort Triad, and progress through the Reveal, Amplification, Revelation, and Integration.
       
      These overlap and change over time so that, for instance, if a Relationship started from Attraction/Reveal, it will tend toward Repulsion/Amplification, then Comfort/Revelation, and then Attraction/Integration, the back to Repulsion/Reveal, etc.
       
      None of these must be dramatic or theatrical, but are often quite subtle and enlightening, depending upon where one is with himself or herself in his own Relating.
       
      So to summarize: You are Relating to anyone when there is any interaction of significance. Relating is a Triad that either aims at one part of the Triad, or cycles through it over time and space. You only Relate to Equals, as they are serving your Goal, and you, in some way. You Relate as a means to fulfill your Goal.
       
      Relating turns into Relationship the more time and space is included.
       
      Relationships move through a progression of Reveal, Amplification, Revelation, and Integration, and are perpetuated by the function of the Triad.
       
      We realize this is a lot of technical mapping, and if you choose to use this, it is helpful, but if you choose to reduce this to the simplest terms, then you can do so and still benefit from the responsibility that your part in Relating entails.
       
      Good day to each of you. We will conclude here.

      Healing Relationships
       
      Note from Janet: This material was transcribed by Elaine and Eric from the live video. 
       
      MEntity: 
      Hello to each of you. We are here and we will begin discussing the subject requested on healing relationships. Bear with us as we come through.
       
      The first thing that we will say in terms of healing relationships is that all relationships of significance, in the sense of those relationships that can cause or be affected by wounding, are those that are formed by your relationships developed through your mode in your overleaves. Understanding your own mode, and your overleaves, and how wounding occurs in relationships, why it occurs, and what can help to heal that wounding, can greatly increase your capacity for taking responsibility in those relationships that have been wounded, in those relationships that do suffer from lack of understanding or lack of solution.
       
      Because the more you understand your part of the equation in a wounded relationship, the more control or empowerment – or whatever word you would like to use – the more you have the capacity to change that relationship.
       
      You cannot control the other person who is involved in the relationship, of course. But taking responsibility for your part, even if it is only to the extent that you understand your part, can have an effect on the other party involved, helping that individual rise to his or her own understanding and sense of responsibility for his or her part in the relationship.
       
      All relationships, of significance in particular but relationships in general, are merely relationships with your understanding of yourself. There is no relationship that you navigate that does not specifically cater to your learning more about yourself.
       
      All relationships, but particularly those of significance, are relationships with your equals. The fact that you may think that someone is worse than you or better than you, or even unattainable or inaccessible, signifies or equates where you are with yourself.
       
      This is often referred to as reflection, and relationships truly are that: a reflection of where you are with yourself. In other words, the state of your relationships often reflects the state of your own internal relationship. It is rare that one who is feeling whole and liking oneself suffers from broken relationships around them.
       
      And the same goes for an individual who is divided within and not particularly accepting of himself or herself. He or she will tend to have relationships that reflect that: broken or disappointing or challenging and so forth.
       
      So looking at your mode can help you to understand what you expect from relationships, what you are attracted to in the first place in terms of establishing a relationship, and understanding what has become wounded in terms of that relationship. Thus, you can gain your footing in navigating your relationships and raise your capacity for choice, which is the only true tool that every individual has at their disposal. Even when you think that you do not have a choice in your relationships, you do.
       
      Before we get into the modes, again we will emphasize that you cannot control the other individuals who are a part of your relationship. To think that understanding your mode and making efforts to heal whatever has been wounded is in some way a strategy for manipulating the other party into a state that is more acceptable to you will not work. The information we will share with you today helps you to understand your part to heal it and to make room for the other individual, or individuals, involved to make their own choices.
       
      So the aim here is not to change your relationship as much as it is to heal it. And we use those two words very carefully, differentiating between the intent to recapture someone, or to capture someone, or to reclaim someone, or to change someone, versus heal what has been wounded and then to reset the invitation for that relationship.
       
      Resetting the invitation can lead to changes, but the goal will not be to change it. It will be about healing the relationship, and from there your acceptance of the choices of the other individual or individuals involved should be easier to accept and allow.
       
      So we will first ask, so that we can focus on the modes of those present, what everyone’s mode is. We think that we have a room of observation and passion.
       
      [Audience] And power.
       
      [MEntity] Those are the three?
       
      [Audience] Observation passion and what?
       
      [Audience] Power.
       
      [Audience] Who has that?
       
      [Audience] Unclear
       
      [Audience] A couple of persons are observation though.
       
      [Audience] But “secretly...”
       
      [Audience] But “secretly” they have power mode.
       
      MEntity: 
      So what we will do is start with passion, speak to observation and then speak to power. And if time permits we will cover all of the modes, and if not in this session, we will make sure that the details are shared with Troy to include in a transcript of this session.
       
      Those in passion mode tend to be attracted to relationships that transcend time and space. There is a natural quality inherent in those who have passion mode to see beyond any limitations of time and space, and to develop relationships that transcend those, not only in terms of recognizing fragments from previous lifetimes, but also allowing room for the changes and fluctuations that living may bring to a relationship, so that time and space has no bearing on the quality and depth of the relationship.
       
      Those in passion mode tend to see an individual from a higher perception, from a bigger picture / standpoint, and does not constrain those relationships to those restrictions of time and space.
       
      So passion mode tends to be attractive to those who allow room for those fluctuations in time and space. And for those who do allow this, the relationships last the entire lifetime, to some extent, in some way, and the depth and intimacy is not altered by any divisions caused by time or space.
       
      We will circle back to speak about the wounding in a moment
       
      Observation mode tends to be attractive to those who can truly see who you are. Those who have observation as their primary mode, tend to be attracted to those who see past all their personas and allow, not just the surface to be seen or rather make known that just the surface is seen, but all of what that individual is.
       
      Those in observation mode can tend to do this for others: they can see past the surface, and depending on other factors in the overleaves, those in observation mode can tend to see the best in people or the worst in people, but it is always that they see more than what is shown. So the relationships that tend to be formed and nurtured are those that allow room for all aspects of that personality to express itself, to be seen…and not just seen, but clearly made known that you are accepted despite what you may have thought should not have been revealed about yourself, or that you struggle to hide.
       
      Power mode tends to be attracted to the beliefs or the truths of another person. This is often difficult to discern and, depending on factors in the overleaves, can cause some complications in developing and sustaining relationships, because the exposure of an individual’s personal beliefs and perspectives of life often requires exchanges to reveal that. If the overleaves are not in line with the effort to uncover the beliefs of another individual, those in power mode can often sit back and wait to find out what those beliefs are, what those perspectives are, and often miss those opportunities for deeper relationships.
       
      However, one of the ways that power mode attracts those to whom he or she can develop those relationships is by being as present as possible, so that he or she is revealing of his or her own personal beliefs in a way that acts as an invitation for those relationships to sustain and nurture. Again, if this is not pursued, it can cause a gap between the self and development of relationships of significance with others, because the key here is in the fact that it is an individual’s truths and perceptions that are attractive to those who have Power mode.
       
      Before we circle back and talk about the wounding that can occur, do these resonate with those of you who have those modes?
       
      [Audience] Yes.
       
      [Audience] Yes, but I have a question. I was wondering if people who have the same mode are generally attracted to each other, based on what you said.
       
      MEntity:  Yes, modes can tend to be attracted to each other. They can also often be attracted to their compliment on the same axis. But there is no rule for attraction, because the mode, and to whom you are attracted in a lifetime, often depends on what you seek to experience in your lifetime. And by “you” we mean your essence, and if the personality is on board, then the personality as well. Your mode will act as the means by which you relate to and attract another, but it does not automatically attract.
       
      [Audience] Thank you.
       
      MEntity: 
      Now we will circle back, and speak of the wounding that can occur.
       
      Wounding occurs if the mode moves into the negative pole. The causes of this could be any number of things, so we will not go into the causes for why an individual’s mode may fall into the negative pole.
       
      This will be something that you can figure out on your own. We can give some clues as to what we think it might be, but it will be your responsibility to determine that on your own, because it may be a large issue, or it may be specific to that relationship. More than likely, it is a larger issue, especially if you’ve seen this occur more than once in various relationships. Then it would be a larger arcing issue that has more to do with yourself than anything. In other words, it would exist with or without those relationships to emphasize it.
       
      Passion mode often experiences it’s most wounded-ness in a relationship if it has fallen into the negative poles and suddenly demands or expects time and space to be complied to or adhered to in order for that relationship to have any significance or meaning.
       
      If the expectations of time and space are not met, wounding can occur. The phrase “expectations of time and space being met” can be interpreted many different ways and we leave that to you to apply to any of your relevant relationships that have suffered this form of wounding. But in most cases of those with passion mode, they tend to feel the most hurt or affected in a way where relationships are damaged if there is suddenly a restriction or a condition relative to time and space, because this is counter to their nature. It is counter to everything that Passion mode is about, which is the transcendence of that time and space, and the relating to each other based on soul age and relationships of your essence that goes beyond this lifetime.
       
      To suddenly have to restrict a relationship to fit those conditions, and they are not met, causes wounding.
       
      And like before we will speak of the wounding and then circle back and speak to the healing that tends to work in those relationships.
       
      Observation mode can experience the most wounding in a relationship if the individual feels he or she is suddenly not seen, is completely rendered insignificant or invisible in the eyes of someone who previously was seeing you in your entirety. Or the wounding can occur if, in the pursuit of the relationship, the craving and the longing to be seen is not met, and the individual seems to be unable, or incapable, or unwilling to see all of you. Then the wounding can occur.
       
      What we’re speaking about today is true wounding. We are not speaking to the disappointments and every day arguments and dismissals. We’re speaking of what truly is experienced as a wounding for the individual. And those with observation mode can tend to feel the most wounded when they suddenly feel invisible.
       
      We’ll also point out that all fragments will be able to relate to the various forms of wounding. We’re speaking to the inclination that each individual will have towards developing a relationship and experiencing wounding, but you are not locked into those. These are simply inclinations that tend to be very consistent.
       
      Power mode tends to experience the most wounding when there are lies involved: delusion, deceit, or some form of contradiction to what is expressed as a truth, and acted upon differently. Dishonesty. As you can see all of these things may harm any individual, and their relationships, but they tend to be consistently deeply wounding to those relative to the modes associated with them.
       
      For power mode, then, this can translate into trust issues. And often, when it comes to power mode, once an initial wounding has happened, it may take a long time to get to a place to allow the experimentation with trust again, whether with an individual or as an individual in terms of accepting new relationships. Now before we move back to what can be healing, we will ask if these descriptions are resonating with you
       
      [Audience] Yes
       
      MEntity: 
      So now we will speak to what we think might be healing to these modes when they feel wounded.
       
      For passion mode, and for our students who have been with us a long time, you may understand the concept of sliding on the axis, so that if your particular overleaf trait is in the negative pole, and you are stuck there – or feel you are stuck – you can pull from / consciously behave from the positive pole of the mode that is paired with you, which will automatically move you to the positive pole of your own nature, your own overleaf.
       
      This is called Sliding.
       
      [Audience]  This is the same concept as with the Goal. Is that correct? When you’re in the negative pole with your goal?
       
      MEntity: 
      It can be any overleaf, any axis. Yes. Whatever your overleaf is, if you are stuck in the negative pole, if you consciously choose to behave from the positive pole of the partner, you will automatically pull yourself into your own positive pole.
       
      We set up this system so that it is not just a description of yourself, but a map for how to get out of any binds that you feel you may have gotten into.
       
      Sometimes the negative poles are perfectly acceptable, and we do not teach our system so that you are consciously striving to escape the negative poles or to avoid them. They are a part of your Personality, they will always be there. However, they do not feel as good and they do not prompt you to feel as alive as your positive poles. So an individual will tend to prefer the positive poles, and your clarity and your openness and your happiness tends to be proportionate to where you are in your Personality between the positive and negative poles. So understanding how to do that can help you make your choices.
       
      But if you are in a negative pole, it does not mean you are bad or you are doing something wrong. So in terms if passion mode, what can help heal the wounding that might occur in your relationship is to use what is attractive to the partner mode, in this case, reserved.
       
      Reserve Mode is attracted to the past, to an individual’s history. Therefore, if an individual who has passion mode feels wounded in a relationship, it helps to address the past. It helps to talk about where the relationship is in relation to its history.
       
      Often this can help put into perspective everything that has existed as a part of that relationship and in that understanding can free it again from the constraints and restrictions and conditions of time and space, especially when the individual realizes that there is nothing about time and space in particular that can take away from the meaning and inspiration of that relationship.
       
      By time and space, by the way, we do not speak superficially on showing up on time or being close by. But sometimes those in passion mode can have strict rules about how another behaves in his or her own space. And therefore, those conditions can cause wounding or deflections of relationships. You understand? Those in passion mode, or are you asleep?
       
      [Audience] (laugh) I’m not asleep. Yes. I think I understand, yes.
       
      MEntity:  We will state it again. When conditions get placed on time and space, it does not mean that an individual must be on time in order to feel as if the relationship is good, or that you must be close to each other in order for the relationship to be good. It can also show up as having control or conditions over how an individual behaves when he or she is with you in time and space.
       
      [Audience] Isn’t that kind of universal? Like if someone behaves badly, it would be annoying in your space. I mean, I don’t…
       
      [Audience] I think it feels normal for us. That’s the whole point.
       
      MEntity: Yes, that is the point.
       
      [Audience] How can someone not be (unclear). The concept of not being annoyed with the way someone behaves in your…when they’re with you doesn’t even make sense.
       
      MEntity: Those in passion mode who can lean towards the negative pole can tend to have the highest standards for how behavior is controlled in his or her space and time.
       
      [Audience] That would be me.
       
      [Audience] That would be me to.
       
      [Audience] Yeah, I am willing to admit that.
       
      [Audience] I didn’t quite understand what you said about reserve?
       
      MEntity: Those in reserve mode…before we respond we want to make sure we understand your question. You are asking how it fits into the healing?
       
      [Audience] Yeah, I mean reserve is the complementary mode of passion, is that correct?
       
      MEntity: Yes.
       
      [Audience] So yes, how does reserve connect?
       
      MEntity:
      Reserve feels that a relationship is flourishing and tends to be attracted to relationships that are attracted to each other’s history. So for instance, those who have reserve mode will tend to be attracted to a person’s history, not necessarily who that person is now, but who they have been, and this often refers to past lives as well. Those in reserve mode can often find themselves in relationships with individuals who have no obvious reasons for being in that person’s life, but the reserved mode recognizes them from previous lives where relationships were significant, and therefore can attract them in for significant relationships now against all judgments.
       
      So in terms of healing for passion mode, returning to the history of a relationship that has been wounded can often provide the healing required for freeing that relationship from those conditions. For instance, if an individual is feeling wounded by the behavior or choices of a significant other in a relationship, it can help to remember what has gone into the relationship up to that point, and to pay attention to that history instead of losing it to the present where behavior is not complying to your conditions.
       
      [Audience] That makes it so much clearer.
       
      MEntity: Did this answer your question?
       
      [Audience] Yes. It makes it clearer, I think.
       
      MEntity: We are speaking to Kerrin as well.
       
      [Audience] Yeah. Yes, so reserve is another mode, it is not the negative pole of passion right?
       
      MEntity:
      Correct, yes. Passion and reserve are both complementary, inspirational axis modes.
       
      Returning to the concept of wounding and what we had said earlier, often those who are in the negative poles of their reserve or passion modes, and seeing this reflected in relationships, is often because of wounding that is occurring within in regards to their sense of inspiration.
       
      If an individual does not feel inspired, or is not doing anything that feels inspiring, or is not in any way allowing a relationship internally to be what is inspiring, it can often be reflected in the relationships, and the relationships take the brunt of the expectations for providing that inspiration rather than pulling it from within.
       
      [Audience] What is the negative pole of passion?
       
      MEntity: Identification.
       
      [Audience] What is the definition of that?
       
      MEntity: Those in passion mode who go into the negative pole can tend to lose their boundaries between themselves and whatever it is that they have focused their passion on. The relationship then becomes an extension of identity, rather than a way to actualize the self, a way to learn more about the self, a way to grow. Instead, it is just an extension of the self. Therefore, whatever is happening in this individual’s life, if it is not complying with what you would do, issues can arise. Do you understand?
       
      [Audience] Yes
       
      MEntity: To put it in simpler terms, an individual in passion mode…if he or she were to cook you dinner and serve it – a plate of spaghetti, let’s say – those who eat it might say “I love this,” or “I do not like it.” Passion mode in the negative pole will hear “I do not like you,” or “I like you.” They have lost their boundaries between themselves and the spaghetti.
       
      [Audience] Yes.
       
      [Audience] Yes, I completely understand that. (Unclear)
       
      MEntity:
      Observation mode now. The healing that often comes to those who have been wounded does not come from pushing the other individual to see you more clearly, but that you make the effort to see the other person more clearly. It is often the case that when you feel the most invisible, you have also lost perspective of the other person. So those in observation mode would do well to practice, or to put effort into, seeing the other individual or individuals beyond the surface or, more specifically, beyond what you think is defining that other individual at the time.
       
      Because observation is a neutral overleaf, it has access to all of the other modes, and it can tend to slide to any of the other ones. Usually there is a habitual means of sliding that a neutral overleaf will develop over the lifetime. So, as we cover all of the modes, you may find that the solution can be helped and supported by wherever you slide. For instance, if you slide to passion mode from observation, your relationship may find support by freeing that relationship from the conditions that you have, or the expectations you have placed on it in terms of time and space. In other words, you may be thinking that an individual should be processing things faster, or keeping up with your speed of processing, when you may need to free them from that restriction. Or, sliding into reserve, it may help you to look to the history that is a part of your relationship, rather than just at the myopic version of your relationship currently.
       
      So that is how that would work if you have a neutral mode. The sliding to these other modes would only be for support, because ultimately the goal will still be for you to expand your perception, or your capacity to see the other individual more clearly, as a means of healing the relationship.
       
      This does not mean that you will be seen by that individual, but expanding your capacity to see another individual more clearly is not a strategy or a manipulation for helping them to see you more clearly, but rather for you to be able to see their innocence, to see their capacity for making choices to the extent that they are capable of this time, for their capacity to see to the extent that they can see, which may not include all of you.
       
      Sometimes you are not seen, not because what is see-able is ugly, but because the other individual simply cannot see. And by your being able to expand your capacity to see that, it frees you from locking into that struggle to be seen and continuing the wounding.
       
      The healing that can come for power mode is to utilize what is a part of caution mode’s attraction. Caution tends to be attracted to the security of a relationship, to the safety that another individual provides, or to the sense of safety that is developed within, as a result of the relationship, or to the confidence of another individual. Caution is strongly attracted to that because caution mode tends to work on developing that sense of confidence, that inner security, and so forth. So when power mode feels distrust and feels divided from the capacity for inviting relationships, it can often be healed by developing trust in the self, by developing confidence in the self. If there is a relationship that has been wounded as a part of a blow to trust, that wounding can be healed by the realization that it has no effect on your own sense of self. It has no effect on your sense of trust in you.
       
      Sometimes when you enter a relationship, and this is in particular with power mode, there can be a strong wounding occurring if you feel duped, if you feel that something has deceived you or misled you. This can develop into a distrust in your own perceptions, your own capacities to discern and to navigate. Understanding that the choices of another individual, and their capacity to express their truths consistently, has no bearing on your capacity to do that for yourself can bring about the healing for the wounding that may have occurred as a result of those experiences.
       
      Going back to observation, we’ll say that what tends to be the case on a larger scale, as we said with passion mode, it tends to be an inspirational issue that can often affect relationships and bring about wounding, because that issue is already inherent in the individual. For the observation mode, it tends to be an emotional – as well an inspirational – but a personal emotional issue that is carried around with you: some form of emotional wounding for which you are waiting for someone to see and to accept and to embrace, a brokenness to some extent. So for those in observation mode, addressing that brokenness, that sense of wounding that is carried around with or without a relationship can greatly increase your capacity for managing many relationships that suffer blows in the future, because often those blows in the relationships speak to or trigger than wounding, that emotional wounding that has been carried long before the relationship came to suffer blows.
       
      Observation is related to the emotional rather than the assimilative and those of you who understand our system will see that this may seem like an anomaly, but it is not. In terms of how the mode works in this realm of relationships, it is an emotional mode, whereas reserved mode is the instinctive or the assimilative mode, and we can go into that apparent anomaly another time if it is of interest.
       
      Power and caution tend to carry into relationships…With or without relationships these issues may exist, and that would be what we might describe as contradictions within.
       
      With or without a relationship, often power mode walks around carrying a confusion about what he is, where he is going, what he is doing, and lives in this divide of how to be present in the world, and what that means.
       
      So in short, they have not defined their truths yet. They have not found yet what feels comfortable as a truth, and until that individual does, it can often show up in relationships as distrust and of course develop into distrust within. Because if you do not have that navigational tool of perception and truth to guide you, you feel as if you can’t even trust yourself. So what we’ve described so far in relation to the modes and relationships, wounding, healing…have they all made sense to you?
       
      [Audience] Yes
       
      [Audience] I have one question. It’s to come back to the way to address the wounding and about going back to the history of a relationship. I find that I agree with that in a sense that I do go back to review the history of a relationship, but I actually find myself getting stuck sometimes in that past or getting resentment or…is that linked to something else in my makeup or is that an aspect? The way I am going about looking at the past…it’s creating a sort of stuckness in the past.
       
      MEntity: 
      Well there are two responses we can give to this. One is that yes, you can…those who are in passion mode who then look to the past for the healing by recognizing “maybe this relationship isn’t wounding me as badly as I thought it was, just because it’s not complying to my expectations currently. Look at the history. It’s been wonderful.”
       
      However, if it has not been wonderful, then that same negative pole that has caused you to restrict your focus on the current time and space can then look into the history and hone in on one of those past experiences that contribute to supporting why you are having trouble or feeling wounded currently. So if you think of it in terms of looking back across the landscape and then suddenly seeing that there is a trip along the path, passion mode can hone in on this and say, “See? Here’s why I don’t…this is why I feel wounded, or this is why I am bitter.”
       
      But the key will be not to search the history for proof, but to see the history in it’s wholeness, and that would be the difference. When passion mode looks to the history, it does not serve it well to look for proof to support the present disappointments, but rather to look at the overall picture of the history in fairness. If that picture reveals to you that the current relationship is simply not one that is healthy, and one that is necessary to step away from, then you are still healing the wounds, because you are seeing that larger arc of history and saying, “There is a pattern here that dominates, and it is not so great for me.” Do you understand?
       
      [Audience] Yes.
       
      MEntity: So when we said that were have two responses, one is that if you are honing in and looking for proof to support your disappointments now, then you know that you are possibly not doing the work of healing. However, if you are looking at the bigger picture and seeing that there is a pattern that is not healthy, then you are doing the work and you can make your choices from there.
       
      [Audience] Yes, thank you.
       
      [Audience] Does frequency play a role in that process?
       
      MEntity: It plays a role in every process.
       
      [Audience] In the speed of healing?
       
      MEntity: Yes. Those who are on the lower end of their frequency will tend to take a lot longer to heal. It’s not a rule, it just simply tends to be that way.
       
      [Audience] Do they tend to hone in more on evidence to support their disappointments?
       
      MEntity: Not necessarily, but the length of time for healing seems to be consistent in terms of a higher frequency person can process and heal faster than a lower frequency person. But in terms of searching the history, a high frequency person can also tend to hone in on past issues that support complaints currently. However, it could be said that the lower frequency makes the exploration of the past slower in terms of processing, which makes those instances appear more clearly than to a person with higher frequency. Does this make sense?
       
      [Audience] Yeah.
       
      MEntity: Any more questions?
       
      [Audience] I have a question from Geraldine. She would like to ask about the mode differences between one's casting vs. ones chosen for role and personality if the casting modes have equal influence?
       
      MEntity: We do not understand the question.
       
      [Audience] What is a casting mode?
       
      [Audience] Maybe the mode that is associated with your casting?
       
      MEntity: No, we are speaking of the actual overleaf that is part of your Personality design, not the ones associated with your role or casting.
       
      [Audience] ::Discussion (not included)::
       
      MEntity: 
      Your role and your casting, and their association to the other overleaves that are on the same axis has no bearing on this particular discussion.
       
      Any more questions? Any relationships or examples of relationships, that you would like to discuss can also be bought forth if you choose to.
       
      [Audience] There is so many in the room right now.
       
      [Audience] Oh yeah, it could be hours.
       
      [Audience] Where to even start?
       
      MEntity: We cannot solve those or heal those for you, but we think that what we have shared today might help shed light on your part of the equation that can then increase your capacity to choose what to do from there.
       
      [Audience] I do think it was very helpful. I mean, to remember why you are in the relationship to start with, like all the great things that you have or had. It seems like such a simple thing, like why didn’t you think of it. You know what I mean?
       
      [Audience] I have a question. Everything that you’ve been discussing so far was, from what I understand, from the vantage point of you healing a relationship with another person. Everything that you have discussed, can you apply that if you are trying to heal a part of yourself or if you’re trying to heal your own relationship with yourself? Like, would part of the problem or the infighting be that, if you are of a certain mode, are the positive and negative poles of that mode conflicting or trying to fight off one another?
       
      MEntity: 
      Well what we can say to that is that you are correct in your assessment that applying this to relationships within will also be affected. So that, if you are in passion mode for instance, and you are seeing this played out in your relationships – where you are finding yourself wounded by the non-compliance to the constrictions which you may have placed, or the conditions you may have placed on other individuals in terms of time and space – you can turn that within and find that maybe you are also imposing those upon yourself, and that you are thinking you have limited time in order to be who you are, or that you may have to have certain things or conditions in place in your life before you can be who you are, or to find that inspiration, and so forth. Looking at all of this conditions relative to time and space within can free you to heal those inner conflicts.
       
      Or in terms of observation mode, there may be elements within the self which you refuse to see that you are expecting others to do the work of seeing and bringing to the surface. And therefore, it could be that you are ignoring a part of yourself or that you consistently do that as a method of relating to yourself: ignoring certain feelings, ignoring certain thoughts, dividing yourself in certain ways in order to feel as if you are a whole person when in fact you only feel whole if you keep this over here and that over here, and so forth. Of course we are speaking metaphorically here.
       
      So the for instance, in terms of the overleaf itself, the negative pole of observation is surveillance. The positive pole is clarity. So when an individual is using the positive pole of observation, it means that the individual is able to see the life in a 360 degree fashion. There is clarity about where you are going, who you are, who other people are, what they are doing, and so forth. There is a sense of participation in life and being able to see where you are going.
      In the negative pole of surveillance, the individual then divides himself from life as a means of seeing things more clearly. And so it can feel as if you are living in life, but watching it through a glass window. You are somehow no longer a part of the very life you are living, a great disconnection. So this can occur within as well, where you become your own observer, rather than your own experiencer. You are watching yourself live your life rather than living it, and it would do you well to bring more of your self into the picture that you so often simply watch as a means of healing that divide within.
       
      Do you understand?
       
      [Audience] Yes.
       
      MEntity:
      If there is any validity to what we have shared, it should have hit home quite personally. As we said, there is no hard and fast rule associated with these, but there is a consistency that can be explored with relevancy to your relationships within and without. We will quickly add in perseverance mode and aggression mode so that it is completed in our discussion here.
       
      Perseverance mode tends to be attracted to physical relationships, to the physical presence of another person, to their physicality, how that individual shows up in their own skin. Perseverance mode can often, in fact, use sexuality as a form of relating. But perseverance mode truly connects to the physical presence of another individual.
       
      Aggression mode, on the other hand, is attracted to the totality of an individual: not just their physical presence, but the totality the individual’s beliefs, the individual’s choices, the individuals behavior, the individual’s physicality, their emotional realm, their physical realm, their intellectual realm, their spiritual realm. Aggression mode tends to look at all of it in terms of relating.
       
      [Audience] That is so interesting, because my father is in aggression mode and he just recently, apparently, told my mother that she is everything that he’d ever wanted.
       
      MEntity: And we think that she is attracted to him for the security and safety.
       
      [Audience] Yeah, she’s Caution Mode.
       
      [Audience] What’s Caution mode’s one?
       
      [Audience] It attracts to security and safety.
       
      MEntity: So we will leave those. We can explore them further, but we wanted to throw that in. And the wounding of course would come from extensions that can be extrapolated from the words that we have described. That, if an individual physically alters, for instance, in a relationship with someone who is in perseverance mode, it can be devastating. And by physically alter, we mean there can be indiscretions, or cheating, or ill health, or the lack of productivity. Anything tangible about the individual becomes a measurement for what is meaningful. For aggression mode, of course, the wounding may come from an individual becoming fragmented, divided, scattered, not present, not whole. Those in aggression mode have very few relationships because of this, as well, because there are very few fragments on the planet who are not fragmented. But, because these two particular modes are not present, we will not elaborate upon them. We will conclude or wrap up our discussion about his if there are no more questions.
       
      [Audience] I would a question, then. In terms of my relationship with my mother, everything you said fits in with that except that I’m not quite sure what concretely…I guess I want a little bit more concreteness about how to go about improving the relationship, because I definitely feel that I was wounded at some point in the not being seen aspect and then feeling the violation of time and space in that relationship throughout, starting a certain point in my childhood. And it comes up in our interaction, and of course I can’t decide not to interact with my mother anymore. I don’t know if there is something…
       
      MEntity: What is your primary mode?
       
      [Audience] My mode is passion and her mode is observation.
       
      MEntity: Knowing the other individual’s mode is helpful, or can be helpful, because this will give you clues as to what the other individual might need. In this case, as you’ve already discerned, it might be that she does not either feel seen by you or completely accepted in what you see in her. But it also may be – and this is something that will be important for you to understand if you chose to heal in this relationship – is to understand that this particular fragment may never truly like what she sees about herself as well, that there may be parts of her that she refuses to see, and, because you see them, you are held at bay, or given challenges, or struggled against. Do you understand that part?
       
      [Audience] Yeah, I’m sorry. I am surprised, because I thought it was about more the wounding, the feeling that I wasn’t seen, but you’re saying that the wounding is on both sides or just on her side?
       
      MEntity: If your mode is passion, that is where you want to focus what we shared with you so far. If yours were observation, then your issues would be about being seen or not being seen. However, in your case it, would be more about the relationship in terms of passion and the wounding that occurs in relation to passion, because that is your experience of the relationship. In other words, your mother is an extension of you, and therefore if she is not complying with the expectations that you have of what a mother is, then you may feel the wounding.
       
      [Audience] So the wounding is for all modes when you are not seen, or just for the observations mode?
       
      MEntity: Just for the observation mode. However, as we said before, there is no rule. Those in passion mode can also experience the feeling of not being seen. For instance, Sages in general have this issue and struggle with it across many lifetimes. Those who have arrogance can have issues of being seen or not being seen, those with self-deprecation. So it is not specifically linked to, or isolated to, a particular mode, but in this context of discussion, in terms of wounding and how individuals relate, this is a clue as to what might be causing the wounding and what could heal the wounding. So in your case, you would focus on the passion and the information we shared relative to that, but if you want to understand where your mother is coming from, then you would want to understand how observation works, because then you have insight into how she is experiencing the relationship. Do you understand?
       
      [Audience] Yeah, so the focus on my own passion would be then for me to focus on the time and space.
       
      MEntity: Yes, letting her be free from the constraints of your expectations about how she should be now, how she should have been, how present she is, how close you are. Letting her be free from that can help you heal. It may not help you have a better relationship with her, it may not help you to encourage a closer relationship, but at least it will help you heal, which, like we said before, resets the invitation for a better relationship if it is possible. In some cases, it simply is not possible to get what you want from a relationship, even if it’s with a parent.
       
      [Audience] Thank you.
       
      MEntity: Knowing that she is in observation mode, you can use that to help with the invitation for a better relationship by consciously allowing yourself to see, or expressing to her that she is okay the way she is; that you accept her as she is, not necessarily what she has done, or your responses to it, or your feelings of wounding, but that you are okay with who she is; that she is not just a mother; that she is more than that. She is a person. She is an individual who had a life before you and you are a part of that life, not her life. Being able to see and express that you embrace the totality of her may help her to feel more her own or invite her own form of healing. Do you understand?
       
      [Audience] Yes.
       
      MEntity: But the work starts with your own, for all of you. So it is not necessary for you to know the modes of those with whom you have struggles. If that were the case, no one would heal. And it is not even necessary for you to know all of this information for you to heal, it just helps. All of you would find your own way with or without this information, or not. We will wrap up the session then here, if there are no more questions.

      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.
