    Energy of Essence

    Troy

    There are many ways that an Essence is uniquely designed, but here are a couple of the basic elements that contribute to that uniqueness:

    FOCUSED/CREATIVE ENERGY RATIO [or male/female energy]:

    This is a specific way your Essence designed itself to approach life in general and is measured by a RATIO (such as 75/25, or 34/66, etc). This ratio never changes across your lifetimes, but we eventually learn to find the balance for our specific ratio, attracting people and events to help us with that task.

    FOCUSED ENERGY [a.k.a. male energy] is very definite, linear, plan-oriented, direct, forceful, aggressive, action-oriented, tangible, protective... etc.

    CREATIVE ENERGY [a.k.a. female energy] is very abstract, non-linear, spontaneous, omni-directional, inspiring, passive, emotional, intangible, nurturing... etc.

    Those who have much higher male or female energy (above 60 either way) can tend to have strong tendencies in one direction over another. This means they will "naturally" be more Creative or Focused, regardless of other factors. A "high female energy" Warrior has the potential to be as creative as an Artisan, for instance. As you study the Michael Teachings, you will learn about the various factors that might dampen or enhance a person's Male/Female Energy expression. The goal of a soul is to eventually find a balance in its ability to use its Energy.

    Male/Female energy has nothing to do with the gender of the body or with sexual preferences. It is part of the dynamic of the Essence which has no gender or sexuality.

    Male/Female Energy has nothing to do with mannerisms, jobs, social roles, etc. If a woman is working in construction, this does not mean she has higher male energy just because it is traditionally a "man's job." Likewise, if a man is a House Husband, this does not mean he has more female energy just because this is traditionally a "woman's job." Your Energy Ratio may influence your choices regarding the use and expression of your skills, but you are never restricted by that Ratio. Most people are more restricted by the stereotypical expectations of a society rather than their internal dynamics.

    Although we have been focusing on the Male/Female Energy ratio of the Essence, the Physical Body DOES have it's own properties. It could be said that a Physical Body without an Essence is 100% MALE or 100% FEMALE Energy. When an Essence "moves into" a body, the Energy of the body begins to accommodate the Focused/Creative Ratio of the soul. This adjustment usually takes about the first 7 years of life. A higher Creative Energy Boy Child may be very aggressive, direct, demanding, etc., for those first years until a more Creative energy begins to settle. A higher Male Energy Girl Child may be very quiet, spontaneous, explosive, until her soul's more Focused energy begins to settle.

    As your Essence begins its very first few lifetimes, it will usually approach life from the higher of the two ratios, choosing more "comfortable" bodies to match that higher ratio. This means that if your Essence has higher female energy, you may start out a long stretch of lifetimes literally as female. As your Essence gains experience from within its natural ratio, it will tend to choose experiences, relationships, and genders to help generate balance. After many, many lifetimes, a "higher male energy" person may actually choose a life with an emphasis on the Creative since he or she will want to work on learning balance.

    Those with ratios of around 50/50 tend to be more flexible and balanced in their approach to life, and do not necessarily have challenges with this design. This does not mean their ratios are better or worse, simply that they chose other areas of life for which to be challenged.

    NOTE: In sexual intimacy, people usually have more profound or satisfying sex/intimacy with those of proportionally-reversed Energy Ratios. For instance, a 35male/65female would "fit" more physically with a 65male/35female ratio. This isn't a "rule", but is a definite ingredient contributing to the experience of sexual intimacy, regardless of gender or sexual preference.

    FREQUENCY:

    "Frequency" is the exact point on a defined spectrum of energy that represents Human Sentience.

    Here is a highly simplistic way of understanding why Michael describes our Essence as having a "Frequency:"

    In the same way that there are Radio Waves and a specific radio is tuned to a specific "station" because of a specific point on its dial set to receive a specific Wave within the Frequencies of Radio Waves, so there is a specific "station" to which a Human is tuned within the Frequency of Human Sentience.

    "Higher" or "Lower" Frequency has nothing to do with being better or worse. Your Frequency is how your Essence relates to and processes experiences in relation to how all other Humans do so. Your Frequency defines how you experience the energy of physical and non-physical environments; from the way you experience a city or a room, to how you experience the demands of a relationship. Knowing your Frequency helps you understand how your Essence "digests" your life experiences. When you know your Frequency, this gives you a better picture as to how your Essence tends to take in life, how it tends to relate to your journey of experiences.

    An Essence with a HIGH Frequency (65+) tends to take in life at a faster pace, processing events swiftly. The benefit of this is that these Souls can move through experiences, gather what they want, and move on. The challenge is that one can tend to skim through an event, missing all the important parts, then continue to repeat that experience over and over in different forms until the important parts are finally digested. Those with a High Frequency can literally store unprocessed events and experiences as a kind of vibrational pattern within the cells of the Body or as Emotional patterns. Then, when an occasion arises or they get stressed, they can then "recreate" the same situations through their reactions and interpretations, simply pulling in new players and settings, until they finally finish with that particular process of growth. Only the individual person can determine when he or she is "done" with a pattern. These recurring experiences, reactions, and interpretations are not imposed on them.

    An Essence with a LOW Frequency (-35) tends to take in life very slowly and tediously, processing it with great attention to detail. The benefit of this is that they can indulge completely in an experience, take as long as they need, wringing it for all it's worth, never needing to go repeat it again. The challenge can be when one resists an experience he or she has begun. This person will find it excruciatingly difficult to leave a situation, while at the same time resisting all growth within it. Since this Frequency is more "solid", the resisted events and experiences begin to settle into the body as ailments, illnesses, accidents, or they can become emotional apathy. If an experience is resisted to the point where it becomes Physical, then Essence will begin processing the basic energy of the denied event by dealing with its physical elements. While this is not a "bad" way to process experiences, it is not any fun for the Personality.

    MORE ON FREQUENCY:

    You will tend to feel more comfortable with people within about 20 points of your own Frequency point. For instance, if you have a Frequency of 62, you will relate to, communicate easily with, and find general resonance with those who have a Frequency up to 82 and as low as 42. Being with someone outside of that range can tend to have challenges.

    This 20 point range of flexibility isn't as limiting as it may seem, considering that another Essence can also move within his or her own 20 point range. An example: Let's say one person has a Frequency of 35 and another has a Frequency of 70. The person with the Frequency of 35 would need to "tune" to a higher Frequency, stretching as far as 55, while the other person would need to lower his Frequency as low as 50. This gives the two people about 5 points of common Frequency with which to relate. These two people may tend to have trouble maintaining constant contact or sustained intimacy, but the "stretching" of the Frequency can lead to some very exciting experiences!

    What if a person's Frequency is 19 and can only go as high as 39, while another person's Frequency is 72, only able to go as low as 52? This leaves a "gap" of about 13 points! Anytime there is a "gap," there is usually a need for a bridging factor of some sort, such as a third person with a Frequency that accommodates both, acting as a conduit or mediator. These so-called gaps in Frequency are what help bring more people together! It should be noted that an event or situation can also act as a common point between two distant Frequency points, such as a spiritual pursuit, games, common goals, etc.

    An interesting note: In a room full of people the Frequencies of all people will gravitate toward the most common denominator. If the common denominator Frequency is a stretch for someone, he or she will most likely feel proportionally uncomfortable. During adolescence, particularly in a school setting, we tend to go through a "locking" of our Frequency and refuse any fluctuation. It is at this age we are most inflexible and tend to remain within only a few points of our own Frequency point. This is what leads to "cliques" and can contribute to strong divisions among groups in school.

    IN CONCLUSION:

    M/F Energy and Frequency are two ingredients of our Essence that make it unique in its strengths and challenges. We choose these factors as Souls and these factors have much to do with what our Essence generally sought to experience throughout our Grand Cycle of lives.

      OMW - Jul 21, 2012 - Personal Cycles of Life
       
      MEntity Channel: Troy Tolley

      Began 9:56 AM 7/21/2012; Ended 2:37 PM 7/21/2012 (Approx. 4-1/2 hours)
       
      The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan.
       
      [MEntity]
      Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin with a discussion about the nature of cycles and the potential benefit of understanding these.
       
      In every Universe, Planetary System, Planet, and its various life forms, there are cycles in effect that affect all who are a part of that dynamic.
       
      Many of these are obvious and observable, and many are on such vast or minute scales they are either missed, or nearly impossible to be concerned with from the Personality's point of view.
       
      Today we will discuss with you as many of the cycles that are relevant to the Personality as we can thoroughly discuss.
       
      The cycles of relevance tend to develop systems around them as a means to help measure them and track them, such as Astrology and Numerology, which are both valid systems for such things, when applied in legitimate ways.
       
      We will not go into the effects or measurements of such cycles that are most obvious, such as the hours of a day, seasons, lunar, etc., except in how they may apply to the cycles of relevance we will discuss.
       
      It is not that these more mundane cycles are not relevant, but that they are more useful as markers than as having actual effects.
       
      They are more reflective, than causative.
       
      There are 12 Cycles of Relevance, as we will call them for now, that may be of use to each Personality for understanding the cycles of his or her life.
       
      These are not predictive cycles, in terms of telling you what to expect in detail, but can be predictive in terms of their emphasis. Considering these as predictive only of emphasis in context is a more useful way of understanding these.
       
      For example, you know what time tomorrow will come, and that it indicates a new day, and that these days can be measured, mapped out, and counted on, but you cannot predict what each day will contain.
       
      To start, we will look at the most intimate of the Cycles: your Relationship Cycles, Comprehension Cycles, and your Life Plan Cycles.
       
      Relationship Cycles (Astrology and M/F Energies)
       
      Relationship Cycles are often run by your Male/Female, or Focused/Creative Cycles as measured by the ratio of "male to female" energy in your Essence as it is then reflected more mundanely in the Body.
       
      Bodies without Essence are either 100% Male/Focused Energy or 100% Female/Creative Energy. As Essence moves through a Body, the body shifts in dynamic to reflect the ratio inherent in the design of your Essence.
       
      Until the 2nd Internal Monad is completed, the Body tends to hold its emphasis relative to the gender of the body.
       
      After that, the ratio shifts to reflect Essence.
       
      Once the hormonal wash that often accompanies the 3rd Internal Monad is activated, then the Relationship Cycles, or M/F Energy Cycles are in effect.
       
      Regardless of your Male/Female Energy Ratio, your Relationships will tend to play out the cycles of both Energies, and because your Bodies are directly involved with relating, the body tends to reflect those cycles in fairly tangible terms.
       
      Before we elaborate, we will point out here, as an important aside, that there are 3 measurements of cycles that tend to be the most relevant and meaningful, at least in our system. These are measurements, or counts, of 7, 9, and 12.
       
      Measurements, or counts, of 7 are relative to Propulsion Cycles, or Evolutionary Cycles. It is a propelling force.
       
      Measurements, or counts, of 9 are relative to Completion Cycles, or Wholeness Cycles.
       
      Measurements, or counts, of 12 are relative to Expansion Cycles, or Empowerment Cycles.
       
      So in terms of your Male/Female Energy, both of these are in effect through your body, regardless of gender.
       
      Your Female/Creative Energy works in cycles of 28 days, divided into two cycles of 14 days, with the first cycle being an Inspirational/Emotional Cycle, and the second cycle being an Expressive/Intellectual Cycle.
       
      If one has a female body, this can often be measured in terms of the cycles of ovulation and menstruation.
       
      If one has a male body, this can be more difficult to measure, but can most often be measured in terms of "mood," as the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle can tend to be the most telling for both genders, as both will either be comfortable in their skin and social during that cycle, or "bitchy," sensitive, and reactionary during that cycle.
       
      The more moody and sensitive the Intellectual/Expressive Cycle, the more that individual is working through honesty and trust issues with the self or with others, and finding the voice for that.
       
      The stereotypical woman "PMS'ing" is an example of this, as the Intellectual/Expressive kicks into high gear for "getting out" what normally does not get a voice.
       
      Men do the same thing.
       
      Two weeks of every 28 days during these Creative/Female Cycles helps to relieve the body and the Personality of restrictions on otherwise suppressed feelings, thoughts, words, etc.
       
      [Bobby] Does the indicator you gave me, Transiting Moon opposite Natal Sun, match this 14 day period?
       
      [MEntity]
      Not necessarily, Bobby, but may be an indication for various individuals.
       
      Though these cycles are valid in terms of measuring by days, they can tend to fluctuate for various reasons, and some "weeks" may be shorter than others, or some cycles may go longer than normal, etc.
       
      For most, the cycles are most simply noted by when you notice you are inspired vs when you are suddenly moody "for no reason."
       
      The Male/Focused side of the cycle of one's Energy Ratio moves in cycles of 54 days, divided into 3 sub-cycles of 18 days each. Those sub-cycles are an Action Cycle, Expressive Cycle, and Inspirational Cycle.
       
      These sub-cycles can be most notably observed by their corresponding names, in that the Action cycle is quite active, sexual, aggressive, more outward in focus, and the Expressive Cycle is more thoughtful, communicative, expressive, and the Inspirational cycle is sleepier, more introspective.
       
      These two cycles, and their sub-cycles, are both moving through you at different paces, so that the mix and match of energies is constantly in flux.
       
      Combine this with the mix and match of others around you, and there is a great dance of energies happening among you at any moment.
       
      This adds a great amount of variation and variety to all forms of relating, and thus this is why we refer to this as your Relationship Cycle.
       
      Male/Female Energy Ratio describes how one navigates the life in terms of seeking balance, and this applies to relationships, as well. Depending upon where you are in your cycles, this tends to bring in a balancing set of cycles from others, or similar cycles.
       
      Taking responsibility for where you are in your own cycles can help you to relieve others of the responsibility for balancing you out.
       
      However, it can also help you to allow others to be in your life as a way to help you balance those out.
       
      Regardless of gender, if your ratio is higher on one side than the other by more than 65, then you may tend to relate more, and require balance more, in regard to that cycle.
       
      It may also be the side of the Ratio that is most easily revealed to you in observation.
       
      So if you are in a male body with higher female energy, you may actually sense your cycles of inspiration vs expression even more obviously than your male cycles of action, expression, and inspiration.
       
      Keep in mind that the expression and inspiration cycles overlap in terms for male and female energy, but their implementations are quite different. The male expression and inspiration cycles will be about structure, planning, and all other "focused" qualities, while the female expression and inspiration cycles are far more fluid, open, unstructured, and "creative" in quality.
       
      We realize this is a great deal of daunting information and we are only on the first of cycles to consider, but each will progressively require less detail, and we will continue to increase in speed of delivery.
       
      To help make the information we have shared so far useful, here is a quick synopsis of what to do:
       
      If you are female, make note of your ovulation/menstruation cycles. This can help you map your Creative Energy cycles. If you no longer ovulate or menstruate, or if you are in a male body, you can make note of when you feel the most inspired, with ideas flowing, and visions upheld, and increases in dream lucidity for when you are in the Inspirational cycle of the Creative Energy.
       
      You can also note when your mood turns in a noticeable way toward being sharper, more sensitive, brooding, or "moody," mind racing, and a sense of "facing or saying the truth" (even as it may be completely inaccurate), which may indicate the Expressive Cycle.
       
      Both of these cycles tend to be about one's mood, so keeping an eye on those distinct patterns can be helpful.
       
      Are you in the mood to construct, or in the mood to deconstruct, may be the easiest question to ask in mapping this.
       
      If you are male, you can map your male cycles by noting when you find your scent to increase, your sexual urges are amped up, and your distraction with attraction is obvious. This would mean you may be in your Action Cycle. Mapping from there could be fairly easy.
       
      This is also the easiest way for those in a female body to note where they are in a male cycle.
       
      As it is distinctly "male."
       
      Those with high male energy, whether in male or female bodies, may find it easier to note when they shift into sleep mode, introspective and maybe even escapist. This would be the male cycle of Inspiration.
       
      We know that these may be difficult to discern, but once one has found a mark, the rest is "just math."
       
      From there, you can actually mark your calendars for a general mapping of your cycles so that you will know the most sensitive spans of time, the most aggressive, the most exhausting, etc.
       
      This is an amazing way to get to know your body in a way that you may never have paid attention to before.
       
      How you feel in your body affects your relationships.
       
      Understanding the cycles that affect how you feel in your body, then, can help you to understand your relationship patterns.
       
      You cannot map everyone's cycles around you, and you do not have to do so in order to gain understanding.
       
      Giving yourself permission and understanding when you are in a cycle that is prompting you to be introspective, sensitive, and expressive helps you to keep from blaming others for your mood, your feelings, etc. It also frees you from expecting others to understand you when you have not done the work of understanding yourself.
       
      This, in turn, helps you to not blame others for their moods, processes, and states because you now understand that there are cycles involved that are beyond the control of the individual, except in how one understands and manages these.
       
      Offering understanding and insight when someone is in a rough cycle can be much more beneficial than offering disgust and anger.
       
      For those working on relationships of any kind, whether in a project, or in a marriage, this first, most-basic Cycle of Relevance can save the day, when it is understood.
       
      Noting these on your own is the most efficient means of getting into the accuracy of the cycles, but if one wishes to compare this to Lunar and Martial Transits, there may be a pattern unique to you that helps map these cycles.
       
      Lunar being relative to Creative/Female Cycles, and Martial being relative to Focused/Male Cycles.
       
      The patterns these make in Astrology are not on the same scales of measurement as the cycles of the energies, but you may still find some correlation that is useful.
       
      Before we move on to the next Cycles of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions.
       
      [Bobby] what exactly is it about any planet that matches these energies.. I know it isn't gravity
       
      [Bobby] if the answer for this is too long, just say so and we can come back to that another day ?
       
      [MEntity]
      The use of planets in Astrology is purely symbolic and relative to the developing Sentience and its exposure to, or awareness of, a planetary system.
       
      The planets are reflective of cycles in the psyche, bodies, etc., but are not causative.
       
      For instance, Mars Retrograde does not cause electronics to break down, or communications to falter, but, instead, reflects when the psyche is more attuned to, and affected by, those areas already weakened in that context.
       
      Think of the planets as various flashlights.
       
      In the same way that they reflect light in the sky as relative to your perspective, they also reflect patterns back as relative to your perspective.
       
      [GeraldineB] Are biorhythm charts a good way to monitor these particular cycles?
       
      [MEntity]
      If one wants to use a biorhythmic calculator for monitoring cycles, it is a good idea to do so, but only if there are calibrations made for what you observe vs what is calculated.
       
      For example, you may find that when the calculator reads that your Inspirational/Emotional cycle is critical, that is when you feel the most inspired. Noting this, you can then translate the calculator to accommodate your cycle in a more meaningful way.
       
      One would need to watch the calculator vs personal observation for at least 3 months to see what patterns are in need of translation.
       
      [GeraldineB] if they don't volunteer -- you said you'd biorhythms in more detail (but I see their cycles are completely different, too, other than the one 28 day)
       
      [MEntity]
      As for biorhythms: these can be used in the same was as Astrology. There are distinct measurements already locked into the patterns of biorhythms, as in Astrology, and therefore some pattern correlations may be found if observed long enough.
       
      In the same way that you can measure your M/F Energy cycles in a scale of weeks and not hours, it may take some larger arcs of observation to see the correlations that can be measured by these other systems.
       
      Biorhythms will come in handy for monitoring another Cycle of Relevance coming up (Comprehension Cycle -- see next topic)
       
      [Maureen] This is all very interesting Michael
       
      [MEntity]
      As we discuss each Cycle, we will mention any correlating system that is most relevant and helpful for monitoring that Cycle.
       
      Comprehension Cycle (Frequency and Biorhythm-like)
       
      Next up is your Comprehension Cycle.
       
      This is directly related to your Frequency.
       
      This is not an easy pattern to map, but a pattern that is easy to observe in effect.
       
      This oscillation not only describes how Essence processes experiences, but also describes how this is reflected in how the brain gathers, processes, and archives experiences.
       
      In fact, all of which we are describing to you, in terms of Cycles of Relevance, is reflected in some circles of known Physics by the term "oscillation." For example, the Relationship Cycle and all of its breakdown between Male and Female Cycles is what might be explored further as a "coupled oscillation," whereas the Frequency is a "harmonic oscillation."
       
      And then there are "driven oscillations," which we can correlate to other Cycles.
       
      The Frequency describes one's rate of comprehension.
       
      It does not describe one's capacity for comprehension, simply the rate of comprehension.
       
      This is the rate of speed through which one converts experience into knowledge.
       
      Understanding one's rate of comprehension, or Frequency, can help one to free the self and others from forcing comprehension when it simply cannot come faster than expected.
       
      To understand this spectrum of Frequency, we will describe the more obvious extremes of high and low, first.
       
      A higher frequency Essence and fragment will tend to be similar to one collecting shiniest objects of experience, first. They can collect many, and this contributes to a wide range of knowledge, as they have collected from so many directions.
       
      However, to thoroughly comprehend a single experience, it must be returned to, over and over, working through the "duller" levels, until there is comprehension.
       
      Each level uncovered is like a level being brought into the light (shiny enough).
       
      A higher frequency person might be similar to one who notices the beauty of the light reflecting off of the bumpers of several cars, and comprehending in a flash that these vehicles are truly beautiful, before realizing they are standing in the middle of traffic about be run over.
       
      Their cycles are fast, but brief, and broad.
       
      They may be "run over" several times before comprehending all that is involved with crossing a street.
       
      This does not make them slow learners. Learning and comprehending are not the same things here.
       
      Collecting experiences that contribute to wisdom is Comprehension here.
       
      Because experience can tend to have many layers for comprehension, having a higher frequency or rate of comprehension can help to gather a great many experiences at once.
       
      When one has a lower rate of comprehension, or lower frequency, it means that one is more likely to focus on one experience, and all of its layers, before moving on to other experiences.
       
      This might be similar to the person standing at the edge of a street of traffic "forever" before actually crossing the street. But when they do, they will probably not be hit by a car.
       
      They notice all of the shiny, but also the rubber, the pavement, the patterns of driving, stopping, etc. Each layer is thoroughly taken in AND THEN put together at once as Comprehension.
       
      Once there is Comprehension for a lower frequency, it is fairly complete in the explorations of layers.
       
      However, it can take a long time for that movement through layers to finally come into a state that allows for comprehension.
       
      [Maureen] Michael -- being at mid-range -- I feel like I'm all over the map -- it's mess some days. Sometimes I get hit by cars -- sometimes I don't. ...and I like to play in traffic.
       
      [MEntity]
      So while the higher frequency may be run over a lot more, he is crossing a lot of roads along the way. And while the lower frequency may be stuck at the side of a road for a long time, he may never find he is run over. These metaphors are crude, but helpful.
       
      Another way to understand this is to think of how one might work through an onion. The higher frequency will slice off what it needs and eat the sandwich into which he intends that slice to go. The lower frequency may peel the onion, layer by layer, working through blinding tears, so that the entire onion can be used in its soup.
       
      Those in the mid-range will tend to lean in whatever direction is most natural for the experience.
       
      The Frequency, or Comprehension Cycles, are basically Cycles that be described as those of Distraction (higher), Interaction (mid), and Attention/Extraction (lower.)
       
      Those who are Distracted gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way.

      Those who are Interactive (able to pivot more easily between Distraction and Extraction) tend to gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way.
       
      Those who are Extractive, tend to gain experiences by paying attention, and therefore gain wisdom that way.
       
      Societies tend to move in these cycles of comprehension, as well, relative to the dominant Frequency of that culture. For instance, much of the occidental world is in a Distraction cycle, so a great deal of its comprehension is gained through distracting avenues (reality tv, twitter, social media, abbreviations, etc.)
       
      Understanding these variations in Cycles of Comprehension can bring great relief to the individual and groups aiming for collecting experiences for wisdom.
       
      Those who are autistic or "ADHD" or "ADD" tend to have higher Frequencies, for example.
       
      Before we move on to the next Cycle of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions on Frequency and the Comprehension Cycle.
       
      [GeraldineB] No, I think I "get it" at this point -- may have followups in the future
       
      [Maureen] I just realized that mid-range is a really great frequency to have as a therapist Michael -- Thanks!
       
      [GeraldineB] I'm mid-range, too (55) I think -- anyway it helps to keep me balanced
       
      [GeraldineB] it's when I get Passion as a Mode that I go nutso ?
       
      [Maureen] LOL -- me too!
       
      [Maureen] I guess
       
      [MEntity] This is why there is such a limit within the range of your Frequency point, because there is really no altering one's rate of comprehension. It is not necessary for everyone to be at the same rate of comprehension, or sharing the same Cycles of Comprehension, but there will always be a necessity for understanding and bridging the differences.
       
      [Martha] I'm 40 but love social media and I multitask a lot
       
      [MEntity] If our symptoms of Frequency are out of synch with your experiences, we would suggest looking at your Frequency point again. It may be incorrect.
       
      [Martha] Troy got 40, Jose Stevens got 30
       
      [MEntity] We think you are hit by cars much more than you remain standing by the road, if you will.
       
      [Martha] maybe it's 6th being level?
       
      [Martha] being 6th*
       
      [Maureen] What is Martha's Frequency then?
       
      [GeraldineB] I dunno -- I think Martha is extra careful due to an even higher frequency child
       
      [Martha] she's 78
       
      [Maureen] Your daughter doesn't make you "multi-task" and like FB Martha!
       
      [MEntity] If you relate more to the higher frequency symptoms, we would suggest a correction of Frequency.
       
      [GeraldineB] well, what frequency do you see for her, Michael?
       
      [Martha] no she doesn't, Maureen ?
       
      Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans (Numerology)
       
      [MEntity]
      Next up is the Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans.
       
      We will look at that for her if that is requested, but for now we would suggest a process of validation, first. If the information here is cause for correction, Martha will probably know.
       
      [Martha] I feel like I process big stuff slowly but can handle lots of things going on all the time
       
      [Martha] I don't know if that make sense to anyone ?
       
      [MEntity] Her mid-range is not unbelievable to us.
       
      [GeraldineB] maybe she IS a 40 but functions closer to 55-60 to cope with others
       
      [MEntity] That is correct.
       
      [Martha] may be why I need to get away from people regularly ?
       
      [Maureen] my Sage sister is at 80 -- and she's like that Martha
       
      [MEntity]
      The Cycle of Life Plans is fairly easy to map and to measure, and has a direct correlation to Numerology.
       
      This is one of the few Cycles that has such a direct means of measuring and mapping of it.
       
      Every life moves in cycles of completion, which are mapped in cycles of 9.
       
      However, this is not the case of the first year of life counting as a first count of 9.
       
      Instead, one would use Numerology to calculate his or her "Life Path Number" as an indication of where in the cycle one has entered into this incarnation. Using the known birthday and year is enough. It is not necessary for this to be accurate to an actual birthday, if that is not known, such as in adoption. It is the adopting of the birthday and year that is significant here.
       
      This calculation is probably familiar to most of our students as adding all of the numbers of your birth month, day, and year, and then continuing to reduce those numbers by addition until there is a single number.
       
      Using Troy as an example, with January 20, 1968, this would be 0+1+2+0+1+9+6+8 = 27, 2+7=9.
       
      Using the interpretations already set in Numerology, one can get a sense of what Essence was planning for this current lifetime, and where in its cycles of exploration it might be.
       
      To understand where you are within that greater context, then one would use the month and day of birth, added to the current year. So for Troy this would be 0+1+2+0+2+0+1+2 = 8.
       
      [GeraldineB] Michael -- since my adoption was completed when I was 7 years old -- and I can't remember the date, what would I use?
       
      [GeraldineB] just the current extrapolation based on Day/Month/current year?
       
      [MEntity] We suggest using whatever you have been using as your birth day, month, and year overall, since having to choose one.
       
      [GeraldineB] ok
       
      [MEntity]
      What we are doing here will be applied to a different Cycle we will describe in a moment, but doing both now is helpful.
       
      Troy, then, would be described as having a Life Path Number of 9, but is in an "8 year" of his Cycle of Life Plans.
       
      We invite each of you to share your results, as well.
       
      [Maureen] I'm a birth 6 in a 10 or a 1 year
       
      [Maureen] does the 10 become a 1?
       
      [MEntity] Always reduce to a single digit.
       
      [GeraldineB] apparently, I am 5 birth and 2 current
       
      [GeraldineB] and both Martha and Diane had to leave
       
      [Maureen] Is there any significance to being a Priest and having a 6 Lifetime?
       
      [Maureen] Or being a Sage and having a 5 Lifetime?
       
      [MEntity] Maureen, no, because you will also have every other number as a reference over your incarnations.
       
      [Maureen] OK
       
      [GeraldineB] sorta like Astrology -- you're probably never gonna duplicate any birth chart again
       
      [MEntity] What matters here, for now, is your number as it reflects your Cycle of Life Plans, or "personal year" number in Numerology.
       
      [Maureen] OK
       
      [MEntity]
      This Cycle is based on cycles of completion regarding themes, and anything related to those themes.
       
      These themes are described by the overall Life Plan/Path Number.
       
      Exploring the interpretation of your Life Path Number in Numerology, and where you are in your Cycle of Life Plans, can shed great light on the layers of themes being explored within the lifetime.
       
      In terms of where one might be in a Cycle of Life Plans, the numbers might be easily referenced as:

      1 = Initiations/Beginnings;
      2 = Cooperations/Nurturing;
      3 = Productions/Expansions;
      4 = Focus/Troubleshooting;
      5 = Respite/Playtime;
      6 = Intimacy/Resonance;
      7 = Analysis/Learning;
      8 = Empowerment/Harvesting;
      9 = Reflection/Closure.
       
      These keywords are suggestions, but you may find other interpretations that resonate more.
       
      [GeraldineB] And this would be for the birth number?
       
      [MEntity] These keywords, then would be used to describe where you may be in your exploration of the theme described by your Life Path number.
       
      [Maureen] would concurrents be a different Life Plan number -- or the same? Aren't they usually the same Theme?
       
      [GeraldineB] yea -- I'm on a theme with my concurrents -- Revelation
       
      [Maureen] would the numbers also describe your Life Plan number?
       
      [MEntity] In answer to Geraldine: Life Path Number = MM+DD+YYYY of birth; Cycle of Life Plans = MM+DD (of birth) + current year YYYY
       
      [GeraldineB] ok -- that clarified it
       
      [MEntity]
      In response to Maureen:
       
      Concurrents may share a Life Path Number, regardless of when each was born, as the math would be what matters, not the numbers, but where one is in the Cycle of Life Plans might be different.
       
      [Maureen] I can see that
       
      [MEntity] There is no consistency that we can see in terms of those being the same across concurrents, though.
       
      [Maureen] so the same "theme" would be expressed through the Life Path Number -- but the different experiences would be collected for Essence through different Cycles of Life (i.e. what number year you are in)?
       
      [MEntity]
      The keywords we used above are relative to the shorter cycles within the Life Plans, but are not fair to the greater arc of the actual Life Plan. So being in an 8 year has a different context than being in an 8 lifetime.
       
      Think of the year number as the Casting and the "Role" as the Life Plan/Path number.
       
      Troy, then, would be described as being in an 8-Cast Year for a 9 Lifetime. This is yet another crude way of explaining, but it works for now.
       
      [Maureen] OK
       
      [GeraldineB] I cannot validate that my "Life Plan" number of 5 (Respite/Playtime) resonates at all with how my life has gone
       
      [MEntity] We suggest that you look up "personal year number" vs "Life Path number" when exploring your numbers here.
       
      [Maureen] OK - Thanks
       
      [MEntity]
      Geraldine, that is our point.
       
      A 5 year is very different from a 5 lifetime.
       
      [GeraldineB] I'd have to look closely at the 2 (Current) -- it seems a lot softer than I am (but I've got to look at it in context of my now Personality)
       
      [MEntity]
      We will help each of you in this for now: Give to us your Life Path Number (based on your entire birth date) and your Personal Year Number (based on your month and day added to current year).
       
      We already described the numbers as part of the Cycles of Life Plans (based on current year), but we will now describe the Life Path Numbers (based on birth year):
       
      [Maureen] Life Plan Number: 6, Personal Year Number: 2
       
      [Maureen] Correction: Personal Year Number: 1
       
      [GeraldineB] lol -- ok there we go again -- Life Plan Number 5

      [MEntity]
      LIFE PLAN/PATH NUMBER THEME KEYWORDS suggested are:
       
      1 = INDEPENDENCE/STRENGTH;
      2 = INTIMACY/SHARING/PARTNERSHIPS;
      3 = CREATIVITY/SOCIALIZING; 
      4 = GROUNDING/STABILITY/ENDURANCE;
      5 = CONSTANT CHANGE/FLEXIBILITY/EXPANSION;
      6 = HARMONY/PEACE/HEALING;
      7 = SEARCHING/CURIOSITY/OBSERVATION;
      8 = HAVING/LEADING/CONFIDENCE;
      9 = ABUNDANCE/HUMANITARIANISM/HIGHER PURPOSE
       
      [Maureen] That is great Michael!
       
      [GeraldineB] that actually resonates
       
      [MEntity]
      Comparing these simplistic keywords between the Path Number and Year Number may help validate, but exploring each further in the context of Numerology can help expand upon that, then.
       
      Taking the numbers you offered: if Geraldine is in a 5 Lifetime, then the themes would be around Change/Flexibility and Expansion, but if she is in a 2 year, then it would mean that that greater theme is now being explored through having to work in Cooperation and using Nurturing.
       
      [GeraldineB] good, that makes sense for me
       
      [MEntity]
      This means that approximately every 9 years, the theme of 2 = Cooperation and Nurturing repeats itself in a new layer of the Life Path of Constant Change/Flexibility/Expansion.
       
      Maureen would be in a 1 cycle of new beginnings and initiations aimed at helping further explore her themes of Healing/Peace/Harmony.
       
      Keep in mind that we are referring to a completely different system from our own, but it works here in understanding this Cycle of Life Plans.
       
      [Maureen] that makes sense for me as well Michael
       
      [MEntity]
      We might more accurately describe these numbers, then, as Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans.
       
      Again, the only number relevant to the Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans is the "year number" based on the current year. The Life Plan number (based on birth year) is a part of a greater cycle we will describe in a moment.
       
      [GeraldineB] Is it possible to have a quick answer as to why someone like Holmes, the man who just killed 12 people and wounded 56 others would deviate so far from any of these descriptions?
       
      [GeraldineB] These would appear to be purely "positive pole"
       
      [MEntity]
      In response to the question regarding "negative" lifetimes, it would be correct to assess that these are more neutral, or aspiring, themes, but each can fall into negative states.
       
      A 5 Life Plan can bring great growth, expansion and flexibility for the individual, but can also fall into wreaking havoc, chaos, and suffering upon others.
       
      The craving for stimulation either attracts the constant change, or imposes it.
       
      We will not go into all of the negative states, as this is thoroughly covered in competent Numerology texts.
       
      REMAINING CYCLES
       
      As we have gone extensively beyond the time frame of this workshop, we will describe the remaining cycles briefly.
       
      The three cycles we already described are the most-immediately useful, with tangible references and impact, if you choose to understand and map them.
       
      Those first three cycles describe patterns that emerge as a result of what Essence infused into the life before "you" were born, and how those emerge. You will always have a choice in how those play out, regardless of their repetitive emergences.
       
      We realize, however, that it would not be useful to add on the remaining cycles, but to leave this exchange with the focus on the three that have been discussed. We will cover the remaining in another way through this channel.
       
      The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan.
       
      The next tiers are the:
       
      CYCLES OF EXPANSION, which include one's Cycles of Learning/Resistance; Cycles of Harmony/Discord; and Cycles of Creativity/Destruction; CYCLES OF PURPOSE, which are Cycles of Humor, Cycles of Discipline, and Cycles of Focus; and finally CYCLES OF DISCOVERY, which are Cycles of Healing, Cycles of Surrender, and Cycles of Acceleration.  
      (Note: Since this session went 4-1/2 hours, Michael and Troy decided that the other Cycles will have to be done at some future time. Maureen and I have already discussed it with Troy -- hopefully, we'll be setting up another session in August that isn't an OMW, but will continue with this Cycle information. glb)
    • Troy
      By Troy
      "Soul Age" describes one of the most immediately practical and useful aspects of Michael's body of information. The Soul Ages describe the very basic stages every soul will go through in the process of its evolution. Your Soul Age helps describe where you are in that process. Soul Ages can also help describe the average perspective of groups of people, communities, countries, etc. Understanding the Age of an Essence, or a group of Essences, can greatly increase your ability to be accepting, adaptable, compassionate, and constructive.
       
      Ironically, this part of the Teaching can also tend to be the most susceptible to abuse, misuse, and complete distortion among Students. Remember that the Soul Ages are not hierarchical and that one Soul Age is not better or worse than another.
       
      Before an Essence commits to a cycle of lives as a Human, it will go through a long process of energetically exploring the Earth and all of its kingdoms of life forms, along with all the other souls who are considering becoming Human. Some souls decide to move on to other planetary systems and some souls never even choose to incarnate. Since you are reading this, your Essence decided long, long ago that this planet and all it has to offer was just the right place for your adventures!
       
      The Essence enters its first lifetime!
       
      What happens next is an incredible journey of dedication, intensity, and adventure in the school of Earth and playground of life! Each lifetime gains more knowledge for the Essence and the use of that knowledge is continually improved upon when planning the next lifetimes. As the knowledge and experience grow, so does the maturity of the soul, and that maturity is described as a Soul Age. The progress through the Soul Ages is Essence-determined and no other Essence, or God, or Tao, or institution, or ANYTHING monitors your speed or level of growth. Your Essence is the only one who can determine when to move on, and how long to experience a Soul Age!
       
      There are 7 Soul Ages to the experiences of living life as a Human being. We will only cover 5 here as they are the most relevant to you in the beginning. There are 2 additional, extraordinary Soul Ages that are experienced after the completion of all of your lifetimes as an individual soul, but we will not cover these in the Basic Teachings.
       
      Each Soul Age can take as many lifetimes as the soul wants or needs to take, but there is an average of 49 lives per Soul Age.
       
      Infant, Baby, Young, Mature, and Old
       
      INFANT
      Infant Souls are those that are new to being in bodies and new to the planet. They are usually superstitious and fearful, choosing lifetimes set away from the chaos of modern life, or at least living separately from it, even if in the midst of it.
       
      The basic lessons of the Infant Soul are Survival. The lifetimes tend to be centered mostly on learning how to feed, clothe, and keep the body alive.
       
      Since the forests and other isolated areas of the world are all but gone, Infant Souls have fewer places to choose for being born and being "left alone"; therefore, they appear to be choosing to be born in more "concrete jungles" over the past 50 years or so. Infant Souls contribute to the rise in the homeless population in metropolitan areas as these souls are learning lessons of survival in the "new jungles". Infants can be as accomplished as anyone else, but there is an edge of instability and even insanity in their eyes. Most modern Infant Souls get into very big trouble, mostly through murders and breaking the civil, unspoken "rules" of a society.
       
      There are very few Infant Souls coming to this planet anymore since there are very few places left to incarnate without older soul ages interfering. The Infant Souls who are already committed to a cycle of lifetimes will tend to find it difficult to keep older soul ages from either exploiting them, or being compelled to rescue the Infant from its survival struggles.
       
      The Infant Soul Motto might be, "There is ME, and everything is just scary and threatening!" As the Infant begins to learn how to survive, it begins to seek experiences in groups, which leads them to the Baby Soul Age.
       
      BABY
      Baby Souls have fairly mastered the experiences of basic Survival and now seek experiences focused on how to behave in groups. Baby Souls gain experiences through supporting an authority, being civil, enforcing order, being clean, law-abiding, structured, etc.
       
      The development of most Religions is rooted in Baby Soul values and ideals. What better way to bring order to a large group of people and to encourage respect but through the mythologies of a vague, scary, parental God who can get angry and punish you if you misbehave? There are many forms of religion, of course, but one can see why Baby Souls would be drawn to this context. There is a security in the churches and the rules and laws are handed out by an unquestioned authority.
       
      Baby Souls will rarely question, they simply have the decisions handed to them from a trusted authority, which they will defend blindly. They do not ponder their individuality, except in terms of how they fit into the contexts handed down from an authority.
       
      All things based on order, structure and justice are Baby Soul concepts, like the library systems, judicial systems, and police forces.
       
      Baby's see the world only in terms of "ME, and NOT ME". This means if you are "NOT ME", you are wrong, bad, and possibly "going to hell". They see everything in terms of black and white, good and bad. Baby Soul's seek such order, it only makes sense to them that you behave within their own terms. Their world is strikingly "black and white", but as the soul grows through the Baby stage, it begins to gain an individual identity, which leads to the Young Soul Age.
       
      YOUNG
      Young Souls have learned all they can from being civil and listening to authority. This Age is like the adolescence of Soul Ages.
       
      The Young Soul seeks recognition, fame, excitement, stimulation, material rewards, and they are highly competitive. This is where the soul begins to indulge in the physical plane and really get into some trouble and adventures!
       
      This Soul Age tends to be the least spiritual, though they will use religious or spiritual groups for networking or help to maintain a position of authority over other people. It can be very difficult for a Young Soul to be spiritually conscious since the focus is so strongly on being as physical as possible.
       
      Young Souls are gaining experiences about individuality, self-expression, competition, self-sufficiency, strength, abundance, endurance, and prestige.
       
      They see the world in terms of "there are you and me and I am going to win."
       
      When an Essence has indulged in the physical plane, experienced all its riches, there will come a point of realization that "there is more to life than this", and that is the step toward the Mature Soul Age.
       
      MATURE
      Mature Souls have learned all they could from having everything they have ever wanted; they've been rich, been recognized, and extracted whatever they thought was important to obtain from the physical plane. Once they have all of that experience, the soul and personality figuratively look around and say, "now what?" It starts to seek experiences focused on emotional connections and spiritual intimacy, wholehearted trust.
       
      The Mature Soul finally confronts the internal sense of separation gained during the Young Soul Age and begins to reach out to others in pain. Most Mature Souls find intimacy through the sharing of intensity and emotions, seeking others who can identify with such personal, inner struggle.
       
      Mature Souls are the most intense and dramatic about life, which helps encourage the questions of "who am I?" and "Why am I here?" They begin to turn away from organized religion, preferring a more personal spirituality.
       
      They begin to recognize the sources of pain and oppression in society and seek to alleviate those influences in any way; therefore, the Mature Soul actively supports some form of "Rights", such as Gay Rights, Animal Rights, fights against Apartheid and Child Abuse, etc.
       
      They crave closeness and meaning in their life. This Age is where the soul begins to want to contribute and "count" for something.
       
      The Mature Soul sees the world as "there are you and me and I know how you feel."
       
      Many of the Students of the Michael Teaching who are drawn to this teaching are somewhere in their Mature Soul cycle.
       
      When the Mature Soul has begun to soften its boundaries, has forged some profoundly intimate relationships, and has built a sense of inner security and peace, that soul then begins to feel a gentle, but haunting, pull to find what feels like "home", and they know it isn't "here".
       
      OLD
      Old Souls now have gained the experiences to help them discover where they fit in, who they love, and they have answered some important questions about why they exist and "who" they are. They now begin to question everything on a larger scale. "Where do we all fit into the scheme of things?" "How does reality work?" "What is Love?" "How do I get Home?"
       
      The Old Soul feels a strange sense of being "tired", and knows that one of the last profound experiences will be in finally, utterly, accepting and loving this world, the people in it, and everything about it; the experience of truly unconditional Love. More difficult than discovering a Love for the world, is the final, most difficult experience of all,... the Love of You. That experience can be most terrifying because Old Souls have glimpsed the magnitude of the vastness of the Universe across all of their lifetimes and they realize their tiny place in it.
       
      The Old Soul begins to sense a need to understand what I like to call "home"; a vague place that is obviously "not here", but truly a place of oneness with the universe and life. They begin feeling a deep recognition of other people that is not limited by the current lifetime. Old Souls can see the entirety of a person, "remembering" other people from other lifetimes.
       
      A challenge for the Old Soul is to now draw wisdom from their souls, using the knowledge gained across all of their own lifetimes, and understand how to live and communicate with all other Soul Ages. They begin seeing past the veil that separates the Physical from the Non-Physical, which draws the Old Soul to mystical and profound spiritual experiences. Eventually, the Old Soul learns to experience life with a uniquely balanced sense of awe and familiarity, as it experiences its last lifetimes and seeks reunion with their spiritual family.
       
      A SPECIAL NOTE on Older Souls and "status": Some people may think that those who are claiming to be "Old Souls" are delusional, misinformed, and/or saying they are Old Souls just for attention or status. This is ironic because the people who are overly concerned with this subject are unwittingly revealing that they are the ones who actually interpret Soul Age as a status symbol.
       
      A truly Old Soul is not going to be preoccupied with status and labels. It has been said that if an Old Soul were told he is a Young Soul, he would ponder the possibility, but if a Young Soul is told he is a Young Soul, his defenses go up because there are obviously "better", "more advanced" Soul Ages.
       
      Soul Age is meaningless as a status symbol to those who study this Teaching as a means to gain an understanding of themselves and others. If someone really is claiming to be "old" as a way to seem better than someone else, you probably won't see them around this Teaching very long, anyway. Using Soul Age as a status symbol would only make sense if all of the students saw that term as indicating one soul age being better than another soul age, but the foundation of the Michael Teachings makes it extremely difficult to maintain that kind of superficial comparison.
       
      Another important consideration: Some students have a stereotypical interpretation of how an Old Soul "should" behave or not behave, describing how an Old Soul should feel or express himself, etc. The point that these people are missing is that the reality of being an Older Soul is that you have all other Soul Ages under your belt of experiences! This means you do have more flexibility in choosing how to behave, how to express yourself, what tools to draw from, etc. There will be times when an Old Soul appears to be a Young Soul, simply because he can or needs to use that aspect of himself. In the same way that a physically-aged Adult of 40+ years old can get rejuvenated and heal by playing like a child (or with a child) in that child's games, so can an Old Soul play the Young Soul games, if necessary.
       
      Being an Old Soul doesn't mean you avoid material security, living hand to mouth, resisting technological advances, and sit around philosophizing while waiting to die. In fact, since the Old Soul has all of those lives under the belt, it draws strength and wisdom from ALL levels and seeks to LIVE more fully! That means that an Old Soul may just WANT to play out a Mature Soul drama, or have a business that succeeds like a Young Soul, or draw from the Baby Soul experiences as a means to have order and respect within a household and family, and sometimes the Old Soul just might get silly and free with the Infant Self through dancing and drinking!
       
      The whole POINT of getting to a place where you are an Old Soul is that you have gained the perspective of each previous Soul Age and can use those perspectives as you wish!
       
      Musical Chairs
      I'd like to share an analogy that helps you to keep in perspective that the Soul Ages are NOT better or worse.
       
      Imagine you walk into a room with a stage in the center and 5 chairs all set up in a large circle, all facing the stage, and there is a lot of activity on the Stage for you to watch!
       
      The first chair in the circle can be likened to the Infant Soul Age. It's the first time in the room, it's the first time you are seeing the stage, so you sit and stare and fidget and observe and get as comfortable as you can. You watch the Play, but you also look around the room and shift in your own chair, nervous, but getting adjusted, and not really knowing what is going on. At some point, you begin to understand that the key is in sitting still, watching the play, and gaining some insight that way. You then move to the next chair.
       
      Now you are in a new position in the same room with the same stage with the same play. BUT, not only has your perspective changed but now that you understand where to focus, this makes the play even more interesting!
       
      Someone else has now seated themselves in the chair you previously occupied.
       
      You do remember what the room and stage looked like from that previous chair, and what players you could see better, and what activity on which you got a better angle, but now you have a new perspective from your second chair! You can see things in the room you didn't notice before, you now see different props, etc., while the person in the first chair (your previous chair) is observing from the angle you originally had. From your position you now have the memory of the previous chair PLUS the experience of this newly seated perspective. The first person is not better or worse, only in that he/she is seeing the room, the stage, and the play, from a different chair!
       
      You now move to the third chair, the fourth chair, etc., all the while learning to see the room and stage and play from a new perspective while also retaining the perspective of the previous chairs occupied.
       
      It is important to note that all of the Soul Ages you have experienced (all of the chair perspectives that have come to pass) are now within your grasp to remember and draw from! It wouldn't be very appropriate to turn to the first chair while sitting in the third chair and scowl or judge them because they cannot see from your point in the circle. You, yourself, sat in that chair at one time, and though you gained what you gained from that chair, a new person may even notice things you completely missed, so there can always be something to learn from those sitting in positions you previously occupied.
       
      ALL Soul Ages can be recognized for what they are: a different point on the same circle.
       
      Your point in the circle has as its capacity for understanding and showing compassion for the previous Soul Ages. For instance, a Baby Soul and an Old Soul in an argument will mean that the Old Soul may have to draw from his/her Baby Soul skills to help the situation along. The Baby Soul has not had the experiences of seeing the "room" from the same place as you, but you can remember what the room might be like for the Baby. This does not make the Older soul better than the Baby Soul, any more than an Adult is better than a Child, but one simply has the ability to be more responsible and adaptable, if he chooses.
       
      THE WORLD NOW
      If you look at the world in terms of the average Soul Age, you will see a much more interesting and compassionate picture than if you simply look at the world as a place of chaos, war, struggle, and division. Some populations will have a higher percentage of one Soul Age, which will give a culture or society a different environment and approach to life than another population. There are Young Soul societies, such as the United States, and there are Old Soul societies, as we can find in Holland. Within a Country, you will, of course, find "pockets" or communities of Soul Ages drawn together.
       
      The world is now officially and technically predominated by Mature Souls. This can be seen in the breaking down of boundaries and connecting of people all over the world with telephones, televisions, traveling faster, and even with the Internet. It can be seen in the Berlin Wall coming down, the environment being seen to be Global, not just local, it can be seen in the Human Rights Movements, Gay Rights, Animal Rights, Women's Rights, etc.
       
      Though the world is officially "Mature", the United States is just coming out of a long Young Soul phase and is slowly introducing the effects of a more Mature Soul mentality. There are still Young Souls in power making decisions that affect us, and even though it will take a while for Mature souls to find power and leadership appealing, they are making their way into these positions slowly.

      Hi Michael, I have a couple of questions about Essence attributes. First, do the frequency and focused/creative energy ratio of an Essence remain fixed across all of the Spark's grand cycles? Or are they chosen anew, from scratch, at the beginning of each grand cycle?
       
      Second, do the roles in Essence have frequencies of their own (separate from the frequency of the Essence itself?) I have read from another channeler's channeling of you, that the roles do have such frequencies, ranging from Warrior (lowest) to Priest (highest), and that the frequency of a Role implies how "solidly" a Personality of that Role would be in touch with and connected to the tangible world around them (the lower the frequency, the more connected). Is this valid?
       
      MEntity:
      In response to your first question: Yes, Frequency and Focused/Creative Energy are locked across all Grand Cycles within a universe.
       
      These are the very unique "signatures" that identify a fragment with or without a Role. Once that signature is claimed, that fragment is capable of being recognized and identified, even upon return to the most conclusive oneness that is Tao.
       
      The Roles, however, also carry their own frequency, but that is only in terms of inherent characteristics that are then overridden by any individual Essence. So there is validity to the fact of more solid Roles, and less solid Roles, and that solid or less solid effect is a generality in each lifetime. However, the more one Manifests Essence, the more one's own Frequency begins to override any solidity or liquidity.
       
      In earlier Grand Cycles, the Frequency of the Essences will tend to gravitate toward the range that is inherent in the Roles, but as one's number of Grand Cycles rise, the differences between the Frequency and the inherent range of the Role can be quite drastic.
       
      Those who are in False Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the default of the Role.
       
      Those who are in True Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the Frequency of Essence.
       
      Between lives, and in terms of Review, the default of the Role will tend to be the case in the earlier lifetimes, and then, eventually, the Essence's own Frequency is owned and used.
       
      The above is meant in the context of how one processes experiences. However one processes experiences, the Frequency will still be static.

      Michael Speaks - March 13, 2011
      Troy Tolley, Channel
      "Frequencies and M/F Energies"

      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We are here. We will share on the requested topic of Frequency and Male/Female Energy Ratio.
       
      First, we will point out that these two characteristics are those of Essence, and NOT of Personality, so they may or may not be obvious to those in a Body. The human body can accommodate the entire Frequency that is used to describe human sentience, and the Energy Ratio of the Body is relative to the gender.
       
      The less a fragment manifests Essence, the more one is inclined to default to the inherent qualities of the Body.
       
      In the case of Frequency, regardless of your Essence's Frequency, one who has rejected Essence would be an open-range of Frequency that can often lead to frazzled, short-circuiting, and many illnesses. In the case of Male/Female Energy Ratio, the gender of the Body would be the emphasis, so that a male body leans strongly toward focused energy, and female toward creative.
       
      For the first seven years of life, in general, this is the case for everyone.
       
      This is why gender roles are often so immediately established, and why children are quite sporadic in how life is processed.
       
      We will define FREQUENCY as that range within the spectrum of Human Consciousness/Sentience that describes how a fragment processes experiences.
       
      The Frequency Range that we use to describe where your Essence functions is only within the range of HUMAN Consciousness/Sentience.
       
      Frequencies range far "above" and "below" that of Human Sentience.
       
      But your particular point in the Frequency of Human Sentience describes just how your Essence processes its experiences, and more one is manifesting Essence, the more one is aligned with that Frequency.
       
      When one is aligned with his or her Frequency, then processing experiences is comfortable to one's familiar pace, and no amount of pressure, shame, or discouragement throws that process off.
       
      One who processes experiences slowly over time will do so and be fine with this because it is how he or she learns and grows, and this is owned as a part of wholeness. One who processes experiences quickly, but must often repeat them for the sake of working through the layers, would know this and allow that to be his or her way.
       
      One who is more flexible and processes some experiences in repeating layers, and others in long stretching, completed arcs, understands that he or she does things differently in different situations.

      The HIGHER FREQUENCIES are 65 and above, and these are the Essences who process experiences in layers, in repeating scenarios, in repeating patterns. They store their experiences in the cells of their bodies in a way that can be activated in "the blink of an eye." These activations often fold time in a way that the past is suddenly the present all over again.
       
      The pros of the Higher Frequencies are that experiences can often leave one unscathed, unaffected, and generally trusting because one learns that to go through an experience over and over means that one can handle most anything in life.
       
      The Higher Frequency can help one to practice non-attachment and be free from the weight of the Physical Plane demands, even if those demands are great.
       
      The cons of the Higher Frequency is that experiences are often repetitive as a means to work through the layers, and just when one thinks he or she is "done" with an issue, it will suddenly spring from the moment in a way that seems it never left.
       
      The Higher Frequency will also tend to have long stretches of great health, and then plummet into something that can often be life-threatening or profoundly debilitating because the cells have been carrying the unfinished, unprocessed experiences of so many events, relationships, etc, and it must eventually "catch up with itself."

      The pros of the Lower Frequency of 35 or below are that experiences may exist within the life for great stretches of time, but when they are done, they are done. They are fully completed, comprehended, integrated, and left behind. They do not return, at least not in any significant way.
       
      These fragments can have a sense of intimacy with the Physical Plane and their bodies in a way that often translates into a kind of confidence and security.
       
      The cons of the Lower Frequency are that the weight of a long-arcing experience can sometimes be the death of that fragment, literally, because it is simply too overwhelming to endure. The Lower Frequency can become completely bogged down with many blind spots internally and externally, and "stuck forever" in one experience, even as other unfold all around him or her.
       
      Frequency is directly reflected in the Immune System of a body, and those of a Higher Frequency can tend toward non-specific Autoimmune dysfunctions, while those with Lower Frequencies can tend toward more specific Immunity issues, such as cancer in specific areas.

      We will speak more to the extremes of Frequency for the sake of differentiation, but we state here that those in the mid-range may find relevance in both the higher and lower of Frequencies.
       
      As Frequencies describe how one processes experiences, it also means how one processes the experience of OTHERS.
       
      When OTHERS become involved, then, there are various Frequencies involved, naturally.

      Every fragment has the capacity for "stretching" his or her Frequency up or down 20 points. So a fragment with a 60 Frequency could fluctuate up to 80, and down to 40. To go above 80 or below 40 would be extremely difficult, if not impossible.
       
      This means that this fragment with a Frequency of 60 would gravitate toward others who share in that similar Frequency Range because that would mean experiences are shared.
       
      For that fragment to experience someone outside of his or her range would either result in complete discord, confusion, misunderstanding, exhaustion, or exasperation, or it would require a third Frequency to bridge between the two extremes.
       
      As Frequencies are that means for sharing experiences, then the Frequencies of those in groups will tend to naturally fluctuate to the greatest common denominator range.
       
      A party, for example, would gravitate toward the greatest common denominator, and those above or below that may or may not remain, or enjoy the experience.
       
      Knowing that you may be in a relationship or in a work situation with someone whose Frequency is outside of your own range can help you to determine if mediation is necessary.
       
      The older the soul, the more flexible within those ranges one can be, but in the earlier cycles, these are far more rigid.
       
      Within each lifetime, the process of adolescence is when the Frequency is most locked and inflexible, leading to vicious or cowering cliques and dangerous outcasting, so one can see why flexibility and fluctuation are much more preferable.

      If FREQUENCY is how one PROCESSES the experiences of life, then Male/Female Energy is how one CREATES the experiences that will be processed.
       
      Though a human body without Essence is either 100% Male, or 100% Female, as the Essence manifests, that energy adjusts and adapts. The body would always remain with its base energy, but the Essence would override this to a great extent.
       
      More accurately said, Essence would use that base to its advantage, or override it. Even more accurately said, Essence and Personality would use that base to its advantage, or override it.
       
      Male/Focused Energy is that energy that is naturally linear, planning, strategic, forceful, with momentum, direct, and action-oriented. Female/Creative Energy is naturally non-linear, spontaneous, intuitive, chaotic, spiraling, indirect, and inspiration-oriented.  
      Those with a higher Male Energy at 65 or higher could be said to create experiences from those qualities described above, and those with higher Female Energy at 65 or higher could be said to create experiences from those qualities described above.
       
      The Ratios do not fluctuate.
       
      However, because this is a means for creating experiences, and the cycle of incarnations offer a complete range of experiences, and Essence wants to experience that range, then each fragment eventually learns to balance his or her Energy Ratio with various external means.
       
      Both the Frequency and the Ratio lend themselves to provoke, at some point, the necessity to turn to each other for help, for balance, for wholeness.
       
      So those with Higher Male Energy would eventually find ways to implement the support from those with Higher Female Energy, and vice versa.
       
      Again, those who are balanced in these energies would fluctuate between the qualities described above.

      All Entities are designed so that the Energy Ratios are 50/50, when averaged.
       
      All Cadres represent the entire range of Frequency from 0 - 100.
       
      Frequency and Energy Ratios are those elements of Essence that one accesses before anything else.

      Even the most rejecting of fragments tend to allow their Essence's Frequency and Energy Ratio through to some extent.

      QUEUE IS NOW OPEN for those who may have questions relative to the topic. Typing 3 asterisks *** indicates that you have a question, and we will take those in order.
       
      Yes, Maureen.

      [Maureen] For example - where would someone like Robin Williams be in Frequency, Male/Female Energy
       
      MEntity: The fragment who is Robin Williams appears to have a Frequency of 80 and an Energy Ratio of 60 Male to 40 Female.

      [Geraldine] Since Frequency and Energy ratios are Essence overleaves, how much do these play a role in how Essence integrates not only its fragments' experiences, but those of others in the Entity?

      MEntity:
      First, we would not call them "Overleaves," but we understand your question. We would call them "of Essence," but not Overleaves.
       
      Next, we would say that Frequency plays a strong role in how Essence processes its Personalities. Higher Frequency fragments might find obvious "circular" or spherical patterns across lifetimes and Personalities, whereas Lower Frequency fragments may find something more like "pyramids" or triangular patterns. We will elaborate upon this in another exchange with you, if you choose to explore it.
       
      Frequency also tends to affect how Personalities are integrated in terms of how many tend to require "collection" at the end of any given Soul Age Level. Higher Frequency Fragments tend to "leave" the most Personalities "behind" and then circle back to collect them at the end of that Soul Age Level.

      In other words, Higher Frequency fragments tend to be the most-fragmented, and then require great downtime, so to speak, for reintegration. This can also carry over into a single lifetime regarding the generation of sub-personalities and their reintegration.
       
      The concept of "soul retrieval" is a Higher Frequency concept.
       
      Those with Lower Frequencies tend not to require the gathering of those fragments in quantity, but compartmentalize them, and then integrate them at certain points. To be clearer: compartmentalize them along the way, and then integrate them.
       
      The fragments within an Entity tend to group up in terms of Energy Ratios so that the group is 50/50 average, and then expand beyond that. Because the Energy Ratio is one that is focused on creation of experience, this tends to average or "zero out" since the emphasis within the entity tends toward the processing of experience.
       
      The Frequencies within an Entity tend to create a kind of spiral, or fractal, when layered in terms of overlapping ranges, and this is then an even more elaborate spiral in terms of the Cadre. When combining both Energy Ratios and Frequencies, the best we could describe the process of reunion is by crudely describing it as a sort of rebuilding of a DNA chain.

      [Geraldine] Thank you -- anything that helps us visualize

      [Oscar] Hey M's =) How are the frequencies distributed over the Cadre? Like a Bell curve with the median at 50 or differently?

      MEntity: Yes, in what might be considered a bell curve, with 50% ranging between 36 and 64, and 25% at either extreme.

      [Bobby2] You've referenced before that as the Soul Age/level increases we tend to go outside our comfort zones with regards to frequency and m/f energy ratios. I think I can really see that taking place within my own life. Would you care to say anymore on that?

      MEntity:
      Every fragment is a fragment of Tao, and in so being, each inherently, ultimately craves creation, expansion, and evolution, and while any pattern of comfort and familiarity is necessary for some amount of assimilation, comprehension, and steadying, it always gives way to the creative, expanding, and evolving.
       
      The nature of evolution is one that is built from Triads or Positive, Negative, and Neutral. For most Fragments, the incarnational process is one that moves from Positive to Negative to Neutral, so the incarnations begin with all of the elements that are directly inherent, and then expand into those that are directly challenging, and then toward balance.
       
      This happens on large and small scales, of course, because one can see these same patterns within a single lifetime, but this is why one might find himself "going outside of his comfort zone" because he is ready to take on another part of the triad of evolution.
       
      However, we would like to point out that "going outside of your comfort zone" does not always mean that you are moving into Negative, or challenging states, but that you may be opening to the neutralizing elements, such as those who complement your Ratio or Frequency in a way that brings balance.

      [Diane_H] Is the speed at which people tend to move through life related to high and low frequencies? For instance some people talk fast and have fast reaction times, whereas others have slower speech and physical movement, or somewhere in-between.

      MEntity:
      Behavior is not linked to Frequency. There is a tendency to associate flighty, speedy, or chaotic behaviors with higher Frequencies, and solid, sedentary, or steady behaviors with lower Frequencies, and while this CAN be the case, and often is, it is not consistent enough to be a correlation.
       
      The Essence known as Stephen Hawking has a Frequency of 92.
       
      This is not to say that one cannot "feel" the Frequency of another, especially if one is intuitive, but it is not always reflected in behavior; it is reflected in life patterns and that person's processing of experiences.
       
      More often than not, the higher Male or Female Energies are far more reflected in behavior, so that the Higher Female Energy displays the more chaotic, creative, and non-linear; the Higher Male Energy displaying the more direct, strategic, and linear.
       
      Keep in mind that no single trait of Essence or Personality can be discerned in such an isolated way, as they are all parts that add up to a whole that is greater than those parts.
       
      The reason Frequency is often associated with Behavior is because Frequency most obviously shows up in how one uses his Primary Centering, which is the Body's means of processing experiences.
       
      In other words, if someone is Emotionally-Centered and of High Frequency, then it could be said that he or she is Emotionally Fast. If someone is Moving-Centered and of Low Frequency, he might be of Slow Motion.
       
      The Energy Ratio is then reflected in the Part of the Centering.
       
      Centering is how the body or Personality processes experiences, and the Part is how the body or Personality puts what was processed back out into the world.
       
      Centering is how one finds his or her way around, and Part is how one determines where one is.

      If someone is Emotionally-Centered, Intellectual Part, and with a Higher Female Energy, then that Personality's expression into the world about what is emotionally experienced may be scattered, unorganized, non-linear, etc.
       
      Troy would be a good example of this dynamic.
       
      So, it could be said that Frequency is the "speed" at which one Thinks, Feels, or Moves as a means of navigating life, and Energy Ratio is the manner in which that is expressed, inspired, or acted out in the world.
       
      Yes, there are fragments at 0 and 100.
       
      The fragments at 0 tend to have the most lifetimes/Personalities, and the fragments at 100 tend to have the least. These usually make up less than 1% of a Cadre

      [Bobby2] wait, I thought it was the other way around, lower frequency = less lifetimes and higher frequency more lifetimes? since lifetimes would equate to more fragments to collect
        
       MEntity: Bobby, when we said that those of a Higher Frequency tend to have more Personalities to "collect" or integrate at the end of a Soul Age Level, we meant that in terms of relativity, not quantity. In other words, even if a Higher Frequency fragment has only 3 Lifetimes for a Level, they might have to "collect" those three Personalities at the Level transition, whereas a Lower Frequency fragment may have 100 lifetimes for a Level, and have none to "collect" at the transition.

      [Brian_W_] So then how does one correct it so that we can focus ourselves better?

      MEntity:
      Brian, first one would do well not to think of his or her having to "correct" any natural element of himself, herself, or Essence.
       
      One would want to do what he or she does WELL first.
       
      So if one is chaotic and intuitive over strategic and logical, then one would want to BE that to the degree that he or she does it well, and then that becomes a resource for those who are "too" strategic and logical, while those who do strategic and logical well then become a helpful resource for the chaotic and intuitive.
       
      In your current, dominant paradigm, and culture, "chaotic and intuitive" have negative connotations, but they are profoundly vital strengths that develop even the cultures most resentful of those qualities.
       
      For instance, The United States was built from chaos and intuition, and openly encourages them, but only insofar as they contribute to the strategic, logical, and planned.
       
      If not for the chaotic, intuitive, and creative, the United States would not exist, but then, neither would they exist without the strategic, logical, and manufactured.
       
      Our point being that there is nothing to correct, but if one chooses to do so, the effort to balance the extremes can be of benefit.
       
      And that balance is an obvious process of enlisting those with strengths that one does not already have, and then allowing that to be a part of the life.
       
      For instance, in using Troy as our example, his patterns will never change in outcome without the complementary qualities that are inherent in those who will eventually help to balance out our work through him; that is, if they choose to endure.

      [AnnH] On Earth, do nations/countries have frequencies and M/F ratios? As a collective?
       
      MEntity:
      Ann, yes, there are collective Ratios and Frequencies. More developed and stable countries are near the 50/50 ratio, and represent the wider range of Frequency, whereas the less-developed, struggling, and challenged countries tend toward extremes.
       
      For instance, the United States could be said to be at a Frequency of about 55, with a 45 Male/55 Female Energy Ratio, while Egypt might be now at a spike toward 75 Frequency and a 20 Male/80 Female Energy Ratio.
       
      This is not to say these same characteristics are of the individual, but that they generally manifest in this way collectively.

      [Karine] Recently, you told me that my Essence's higher frequency sometimes shows up as feeling as if I am the one doing all the work of a relationship, and that my higher female energy contributes to that. Is this a characteristic of everyone with a higher frequency/higher female energy? How does it work for people who have a lower frequency/higher male energy or are more in the mid-range?

      MEntity:
      It seems that it is fair to say of anyone who is of the higher Frequency or higher Female Energy in a relationship that he or she may feel as if he or she is "doing all of the work" of that relationship because those with the higher Frequency and/or higher Female Energy can tend to be the more adaptable.
       
      It will not matter if one is in the extreme of higher Frequency or Female Energy, but that it is higher than someone with whom one is relating.
       
      The higher Frequency and the higher Female Energy tend to be expected (internally or externally) to adapt faster to the solidity of the lower Frequency or Energy.
       
      Of course, the higher one's Frequency and Female Energy, the more one would experience this. For those in the mid-ranges or balanced ratios, the challenges of adaptation are relative to the comparison between their own numbers and others.

      [ClaireC] Michael, is there any similarity between frequency and David Hawkins' calibration of consciousness ?

      MEntity:
      There are similarities, but they are very different systems. Our system is inclusive of all Sentience, whereas the system in question is relative to human experience only. The terminology is in conflict with our system, as well, since "enlightenment" or "shame" are not relative to one end or the other, for example.
       
      The Frequency we describe is not relative to emotional, intellectual, physical, or spiritual evolution, but simply a description of a point in a spectrum, much like describing the colors of visible light within the broader spectrum of light waves.
       
      For example, while we can describe Human Sentience with a spectrum from 1 to 100, Human Sentience within the range of Sentience is at the 75 point in that spectrum of ALL Sentience.
       
      Cetaceans would be at approximately 40, and Gorillas at 85.
       
      And none of these represent any more enlightened than another.
       
      We will conclude here for today on this subject. Good day or evening to each of you.

      Goodbye.
