Here's some channeling I collected back in 2007:
Your Cadre is of the "Knowledge" position within the 12 Cadres of your Energy Ring. This lends a theme to each fragment from Cadre 2 to have a bent toward a search, experience, integration, and expression of KNOWING. We will define "knowing" here as completing experiences that bring with it comprehension. Most from Cadre 2 do not approach experiences "half-heartedly" or piecemeal, so to speak, but dive in for the full run. This brings to your Energy Ring the support of endurance and perseverance that is then shared physically, emotionally, energetically among the rest of the Cadres in various ways. Cadre 2 brings with it a great amount of presence to the paradigm of politics in your world at this time, offering Mature perspectives that help bring a holistic shift of perception to all Soul Ages extant.
There is often a dichotomy involved with those from Cadre 2 in that there is a clear sense of personal truth, but often this conflicts with truths around that fragment, and many from the Cadre carry with them the process of resolving this Self-Karma. This process often leads one through phases of lying (to others and to the self) or upholding presentations of the self vs revealing the self, until there is comprehension of the safety in honesty and sincerity.
Many from Cadre 2 elect themselves to positions as resources for others in the world, often finding great satisfaction from others taking up that invitation, but often forgetting to be a resource for themselves. This is also resolved over lifetimes, but we have seen this as a recurring theme that requires "remembering" even within each lifetime. [Nodding my head here, too......]
In other words, many from Cadre 2 forget about maintaining the "infrastructure" of themselves and their relationship to themselves while in the process of providing themselves to others as resources.
Most from this Cadre go through a revelation during a lifetime wherein facades are stripped away and truths accepted as a means to become stronger internally. Many from this Cadre keep the rewards of facades intact until the late Mature and Early Old stages of the soul.
However, we do not wish to imply that these facades are a "bad thing," because these are often reliable tools for people in positions of politics and provision.
We can continue with various facts about Cadre 2, but this can go on indefinitely. We remind you that we speak of generalities and we speak of processes that last over many lifetimes so that you, as personality within this lifetime, may or may not resonate completely with what we have described.
We will add that it could be said that those from Cadre 2 are those who keep the questions flowing [hmm, what cadre is Xenobia in?? just kidding...] so that answers may be found, acting as facilitators of insight for other fragments, either by providing the insight, or igniting that insight from within the other fragment.
Note from Geraldine: I also asked questions about Cadre 2 last Sunday [back in Nov 2007] during the two different chats -- the first is through Troy Tolley and the second through Shepherd Hoodwin:
[Geraldine] : What is Cadre 2 known to specialize in?
Cadre Two seems to have a theme of emphasis of specialty in Color and Light. We refer to this collective consciousness as Polymous.
We remind all here that the "names" we share here are translations from a less-verbal means by which we actually refer to your Cadres. We also remind you that the themes we describe broad and are taking into account a grand collection of experience that can be reduced to a theme, but those themes are full of sub-themes, and not all lifetimes will recognize that grander theme.
Hello, Shepherd and Michael. My full name is Geraldine B. Earlier today Troy channeled that Cadre 2 is known as the Polymous Cadre and specializes in color and light. It certainly resonated with me as color proved to be my artistic talent when I took up quilting and moved into modern free form "stained glass" type of work.
My question is: Would utilizing light and/or color likely aid Cadre 2 members in developing skills for meditation, channeling, reaching higher self, etc? I'm thinking of those fiber optic lamps, or freeform painting, or even focusing on brightly colored mandalas.
Michael: Yes, especially mandalas. Organized color, with clear form, is more effective in this regard. Chaotic color can be useful for stimulating imagination. It can also be ungrounding for you.
Additional comments from Geraldine:
I will add a comment to the above-posted comment. Part of the channeling was done for Laurel B, an EM of mine and then was posted on "Wisdom Wings," a Yahoo Group; so, it reads "oddly." At this point, I do NOT remember who channeled it. I had gathered it together and sent it off to a different EM in an email back in Nov 2007, which is why I even have it. This is one of those unfortunate things that have happened regularly over the years throughout the "Michael Community." Stuff gets channeled and passed along, frequently without proper notation or attributes. Back then I was a n00b and thought ALL Michael channeling was equal.
The color was especially validating for me at the time, and still is. I took up quilting in 1991, and within a year, I had obsessed on it, veered away from traditional blocks and patterns, and had moved well off "mainstream quilting" into very modern work where the entire quilt-top was the design, rather than repeating blocks. I was heavily into color and it wasn't uncommon for many of my quilts to consist of not only 100 or more fabrics, but the entire color spectrum. Part of my work included using techniques such as "adjacent color effect," which creates colors in the recipient's eyes that aren't really there -- an effect of blending that happens in the mind. By 1997 I had won awards, been accepted into some of the most prestigious juried Fine Arts/Crafts fairs, and shown in Quilt Shows where I won ribbons -- and burned out. But for a brief shining moment, I was a color specialist in that world.
