    Who Is Michael?

    Troy

    The name, "Michael," is simply a convenient name we use to refer to what we understand as a specific family of consciousness (an "entity" of over 1000 souls) who has experienced thousands of lifetimes and has completed their experiences in what we call "the physical plane," now teaching from another level of existence known as "the causal plane." Most of us refer to "Michael" in plural, since they refer to themselves in plural, but some people use the term "he" and "him." Since we understand Michael as not being a physical presence, thus having no gender, and since they are experienced as a collection of souls, it is simply more convenient to refer to them as a group. Some even prefer to call them "the Michaels," so there is no right or wrong way to refer to Michael.

      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, TLE!
       
      I am Possibilities ?I have been reading the energy reports for quite some time. I am active under another name in the Michael Teachings Yahoo Group. Shepherd Hoodwin channeled me as a 7th Mature Priest with a discarnate Scholar Essence Twin. Should I get another channeling from Troy? Everyone does their channeling a little differently, and I'm not sure if I put down what Shepherd has me as it would be compatible with what's going on here.
       
      In my 3D life, I am a technical writer in an aerospace company working on a degree in cybersecurity. I am female and have been in a relationship with a 2nd Old Artisan male for over a year. I have never been married and have no children yet. While going through my Mature phase in my 20s my life got pretty interesting, but I'm in my 30s now in the 7th stage so things have calmed down a lot. When I am not working on my master's degree I am with my friends/boyfriend or working out at the gym. Hope to hear from you!
       
      Thanks,

      MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor
       
      [M Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will respond to your questions as they are presented, and we will begin with “freyaisis.”
       
      [freyaisis] Michael, would you give us a mini energy report for the end of the year and starting a new year? Thank you.
       
      [M Entity]
      It appears to us that most of our students, let alone the general population, are finally feeling the pressures of the energy of the Chief Features for this year: Self-deprecation/Arrogance.
       
      October through December tends to emphasize a reflection on the life, on the year that has just passed, and this can sometimes lean one toward the energy that collectively builds as so many fragments contribute to the energies that are the chief negative features for the year. In this case, collectively, there is an emphasis on the seeming personal lack of importance, inadequacy, flaws, differences, outdated wounds, self-esteem, etc.
       
      When the “season of the Chief Negative Feature” comes up, this is not to overwhelm the fragment with a negative outlook on his or her life, but it is intended to allow group support and empathy during a time of reflection. For all fragments there is an average of two weeks of this reflection during the 3 months of emphasis on the chief negative features. This reflection happens in waves and groups.
       
      Groups of fragments carrying common themes, resonance, agreements, karma, etc. will then drop in energy as this reflection manifests, creating a wave that will then spread outward from fragment to fragment. Other groups will have done the same, leaving a wave of reflection to then “hit” you at least once more before the “season” is over. Quite often, your particular group may have had very little need for reflection, but the waves of other groups will still instill a sense of melancholy, at the very least. Imagining several pebbles dropped into a body of water with the ripples crossing and affecting other spaces (interference patterns) can give you an idea of how the Chief Feature season works in its effect. It is very difficult to “escape” the effects of the Chief Negative Features. Many can avoid or dismiss the other Overleaves as they are emphasized earlier in the year, but all who are alive will face their fears every year in some way, some how. This is part of the agreements made with the self and with the species as part of the cycles of incarnation.
       
      We share all of this background with you at this time as this sheds light on why there are such “highs” and “lows” during the “holiday season.” It may be simplistic to describe the energy as “rippling,” but this helps understand the sense of waves that propel you or drop you during this time.
       
      Regardless of your own chief negative features, this season will emphasize the questions and self-assessments of how comfortable you are with your own inadequacies and flaws; how comfortable you are with your efforts to be vulnerable and intimate. It could be said that one of the greatest themes we have seen this year is in the examination of all issues regarding intimacy and how one feels in the presence of others. The questions will not be answered by your claiming success or confidence, necessarily, but in your honoring and being present with where you are with those issues. The self-consciousness, depression, lack of enthusiasm, introspection, will not be alleviated by pouncing on the issues and resolving them, but in saying, “yes, that is where I am with that.” The season of Chief Negative Features isn't for resolution, but for acknowledgment and embrace of where you have come in the time of your one year. The search to resolve the issues is from where overwhelm and depression can come.
       
      The irony in all of this is in that this is a time to CELEBRATE how far you have come, however little or much that is. In the weeks ahead many of you will feel the effects of these “ripples” and the “highs and lows” and it will only be through your kindness that you can find your footing. We cannot emphasize that word enough in light of the energy that prevails during such a phase of reflection: KINDNESS. It will always be your choice to do so, or not to do so, but we can easily suggest, and we do strongly suggest, that your kindness is needed toward yourself, and toward others.
       
      When you feel at your worst in the weeks ahead, or when you see others behaving in ways that you feel are out of character or interfering with your own world, practice Kindness. We will define kindness as “perceiving innocence.” The cruelest, most vile of all of you, is truly innocent beneath the wounds that compel behaviors and choices. Innocence is there.
       
      The most we can offer for your year ahead is a preview of what appears to be the overleaves, at this point in the patterns. These are subject to change, but we will share as accurately as we can at this point.
       
      ROLE: Sage
      CENTERING: Emotional/Intellectual
      GOAL: Acceptance
      MODE: Passion
      ATTITUDE: Spiritualist
      Chief Negative Features: Impatience/Martyrdom.
       
      We will update these in January, of course.
       
      [alomarsmom] I would like to know if there is any validity to “mediums” who purportedly bring messages from the “other side”. I presume they mean the astral plane.
       
      [M Entity]
      There is a great deal of validity, but in two different ways: one way is in the obvious, which is that the medium is in contact with the consciousness that is the relative, friend, or loved one of the living. This is rare, and when a medium is in that kind of contact, the messages rarely make sense to the living, as the perspective from “the other side” is then so drastically different from when that fragment was embodied.
       
      The other is more common in that the medium is psychically receiving echoes from the lives of the deceased as they still resonate in the energy of the living. This practice connects through a kind of template that belonged to the deceased and from that template, certain key words, phrases, images, feelings, etc. can be extracted as comfort for the living.
       
      There is validity to the presence of “the dead” as they “walk” about among the living, but the ability to see them is rarely a practical perception as a means to act as a medium for the living to have contact. A few of our channels are highly aware of “the dead” within the days of their lives. This perception is really only effective in helping those specific, disembodied consciousnesses, and their cases have little to do with needing contact with the living. These disembodied consciousnesses find their own way, with or without the intervention of the living.
       
      [SweetHeartSage] i am wondering what cadre 1 entity 7 are here on earth to do ?
       
      [M Entity]
      In various ways, Entity Seven of any Cadre carries a theme of Inculcation. They are usually the “teachers” or “imprinters” or “extractors” of the Cadre, meaning that their lives can quite strongly impact those around them in ways that can range from inspiring to invasive. Those from Entity Seven can often be repetitive about the approach to life, never seeming to change their patterns, as they practice this theme of Inculcation. Those who practice Inculcation can often inspire those around him or her, but those who do not find their niche, their pattern, or a comfortable direction of repetition, can often move Eclectically, adding a sense of invasiveness and imposition to the lives of those around them.
       
      Anyone from any Entity Seven must search for and implement a pattern within the life that lends meaning to their days, or they begin to chaotically scatter their energies in desperate searches for that pattern, rooting themselves in one destructive pattern, while randomizing their efforts in all other ways.
       
      Those from entity 7 either embrace their true uniqueness or they spend their lives aching for recognition and being deemed “special” by someone or something that they have also deemed “special.”
       
      Our answer does not describe what entity 7 is “on earth to do,” because there are no “assignments,” but we do describe the common themes that are shared by those in that position and how that may show up in the life. However, we can clarify that Cadre ONE, Entity Seven will carry a theme with an emphasis on teaching all about LOVE, either through Inculcation or through Eclecticism. All Cadre ONE, Entity Seven's would carry that similar theme for their Energy Ring. Bear in mind this “teaching of Love” does not mean “hearts and flowers and unicorns and butterflies” are presented to the world from Cadre One, Entity Seven, but rather that all challenges revolving around the reality of LOVE will be a theme. Many from Cadre One, Entity Seven are striking, but many are as strikingly unlovable as they are strikingly lovable.
       
      [Llawryf] Is my current “flare” responding to the Boswellia (a gum resin) I am taking? It seems to be, but appearances can be misleading. If there are 7 stages of healing, where am I at?
       
      [M Entity]
      There are actually 12 stages, or facets, or Healing, and you would appear to be 8th Stage as described by a state of Discipline. This stage is one wherein the education, insight, information, instructions, direction, etc., that have been found in relation to that which seeks to be healed is sifted through, tested, practiced, and thoroughly examined as to how all of it will help, hinder, or heal. Discipline is merely the practice of making conscious choices; therefore, your response to the “flare” is providing you with feedback as to your experience of your treatment. This information/feedback is heightening your sense of consciousness around the choices relative to this healing. Your “flares” will probably resist treatments until the root of the issue is uncovered, however well the Boswellia appears to affect them.
       
      We would suggest that the message in these flares, and your efforts to treat them, is a direct reflection of your own Personality's efforts to constantly manage and “put out fires” in life, which then seem to only make more emerge.
       
      As you are in the Discipline stage/facet of healing, we would suggest being highly aware of how you respond to “little fires” in the life; how you make choices as a means to reduce the amount of drama; how you navigate your plans as a means to control; and how all of this, ironically, escalates the very thing you wish to reduce.
       
      Your next stage of Healing will come in the form of Anchoring, wherein you will sit with the information you have gained during Discipline, embracing it, finding comfort, security, acceptance, grounding in the truths you have uncovered.
       
      As this question was of a highly personal nature, we will conclude our response here. We believe what has been shared may also be of help to others beyond the question.
       
      [NOTE FROM TROY: I have not read or heard of the 12 Stages/Facets of Healing, so I am excited to get more information about this, if anyone has any! Otherwise, I will be channeling an article about it ASAP]
       
      [tkmppi] What would be helpful for the Hopelessly Loved of the HL/HL monad?
       
      [M Entity]
      For those who are in a Hopelessly Loved/Hopelessly Loving Monad, the greatest challenge for the Hopelessly Loved is in the management of the guilt and shame and sense of extensive responsibility for the Hopelessly Loving. What can help the Hopelessly Loved part of the Monad is in the allowance of the full experience of being WANTED.
       
      The Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad is not truly about LOVE, but about WANT. It is “not your fault” that you are Wanted, nor is it your “fault” that you do not Want that person in the same way. You are not responsible for the definitions of Want for other fragments.
       
      More than understanding your own position within the Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad, understanding the point of the other side can help tremendously. The Loving/Wanting part of the Monad is learning a powerful lesson in self-worth as it is defined INTERNALLY, rather than EXTERNALLY. The Loved/Wanted part of the monad is learning a powerful lesson in RESPONSIBILITY as it is defined by personal boundaries, rather than by the boundaries of others. Knowing that you are not Responsible for the Worth of another is liberating, even as you may still feel kindness or compassion for the Loving/Wanting position. It is okay to feel kindness/compassion for the other half of your Monad, but you do not help close the monad through guilt, shame, or obligation. This monad is closed when both fragments grasp their own ability to choose SELF as a first step toward truly Loving/Being Loved.
       
      [H2OSprtLvr] [question was lost from the transcript, for some reason, but paraphrased, it read something like: “Do the various channels work with different parts of the Michael Entity and this is why there seems to be different answers to the same questions?”]
       
      [M Entity]
      Our Entity responds as a whole, regardless of the various fragments within our entity with which a channel may have Agreements. We are never in disagreement or discrepancy across the entity as we respond through our channels.
       
      When a channel is one of our Primary Channels, our answers will remain consistent through each channel, however “flavored” by the Personality of each channel. Our Secondary Channels may have a tendency to “spin” the information to the effect of support for their own teaching and perspective of life. Our Tertiary Channels rarely access our information accurately, but only access our energy as a means to support their personal experiences and personal expression.
       
      Posing a question to three Primary Channels may result in three “different” answers, but they should not be in conflict. Posing a question to three Secondary Channels may have a theme, but clearly hold conflicts and discrepancies. Posing a question to three Tertiary Channels would result in elaborate discrepancies and a tendency to direct the student to believe in various “reasons” for dismissing these discrepancies, rather than encouraging a resolution or correction of discrepancies. Many of our Tertiary Channels rely heavily on the “energy” that they can convey, rather than the validity of information. Energy is difficult to question as it is subjective, whereas information can be questioned.
       
      We can be called upon by 1000 Channels and our information or energy is not segregated among the channels. It is the same, regardless of accuracy or discrepancy among the channels.
       
      All of this being said, it is not unusual for a Primary Channel to flaw the expression of our information; fatigue, inexperience, insecurities, personal issues, and specialization can cause a skew our contact with you. This is acceptable to us as we do not wish for any of our students to lose the ability to discern, question, or validate. Discrepancies among Primary Channels do exist, but are a result of isolated issues, rather than long-term agendas.
       
      Entities have been described by some of our channels as being designed with “three sides:” one side of Truth, one side of Love, one side of Energy. Those “sides” are also the emphasis used among our varying channels, with Truth an emphasis among our Primary Channels, Love as an emphasis among our Secondary, and Energy as an emphasis among our Tertiary. Our Primary Channels access all three “sides,” while our Secondary access two “sides,” Truth and Energy; and our Tertiary can access only Energy.
       
      We do not claim that any one channel's emphasis is better or more valid than the others. We merely respond to your question as a means to help understand how we can seem to be so fragmented in our responses among the channels who claim to channel us. While we are NOT fragmented or segmented among the channels, our channels can act as facets of us, allowing only specific angles of expression.
       
      We must add that questions such as this are highly encouraged. We are rarely invited to share in this manner among our students because of the politics and fear among the students and channels. It is Good Work that you choose to rise above the condemnation of courtesy and ask the difficult questions that have the power to heal many of the rifts of misunderstandings perpetuated throughout our students and channels. Understanding our relationships and methods among our channels does not create hierarchy, nor can it be used as such, anymore than Soul Ages can be.
       
      We will conclude here. Good night/day to each of you.

      By Troy
      In the same way the "spark" takes on an Essence Role for its cycle of lives while adventuring from the Tao, the Essence takes on a PERSONALITY each lifetime when it incarnates! This helps create even more diversity and flexibility for the soul.
       
      The PERSONALITY is the vehicle for the Essence to experience life, like a space suit. It is the extension of the Essence, allowing the soul to experience the Physical Plane and all of its emotions, sensations, thrills and chills. There a number of ways to set up your "space suit" and as the Essence experiences more and more lives, it gets better and better at creating its life and Personality.
       
      The different factors used in designing a Personality are referred to as OVERLEAVES.
       
      The Overleaves used in creating a Personality are:
       
      GOAL: The primary motivator within the lifetime
      MODE: The primary way of approaching the Goal
      ATTITUDE: The primary way of viewing the life
      BODY TYPE: The basic genetic and planetary influences that make up your actual body
       
      These Overleaves listed above are chosen before birth by the Essence.
       
      AFTER being born, by the age of three, another Overleaf is settled on called CENTERING: your habitual way of taking in and reacting to the world and experiences.
       
      In your adolescence within the lifetime you then add one more element that makes life all the more interesting and challenging; your basic fear, called the CHIEF NEGATIVE FEATURE. It is your stumbling block and primary challenge to all things within the life.
       
      Note: Chief Negative Features are commonly referred to as "Chief Features."
       
      Those are the basic Personality traits with which to be concerned for now.
       
      As with the Essence Roles, there are 7 Goals, Modes, Attitudes, etc., to choose from and combine for the lifetime. Again, as with the Roles, do not get too caught up being literal. Michael chooses the terms carefully. In studying the Michael Teachings, you will begin learning that we have tended to put negative connotations to perfectly neutral words. You will see that some words you used to think were "bad" now become empowering and make perfect sense.
       
      The 7 Goals are:
       
      Re-evaluation: the lifetime revolves around slowing down experience as much as possible, so as to assimilate past life influences. Growth: the lifetime revolves around gaining as much experience as possible, so as to use in future lives.  
      Discrimination: the lifetime revolves around learning how to make better choices and decisions for yourself. Acceptance: the lifetime revolves around learning how to accept all choices and decisions, even the choices of others.  
      Submission: the lifetime revolves around learning where and how you are most needed and effective. Dominance: the lifetime revolves around learning how direct and lead those who are most needed and effective.  
      Flow: the lifetime is learning how to relax, enjoy life, and let it unfold, trusting in Essence.  
      The 7 Modes are:
       
      Reserve: reaching your Goal by refining your emotions Passion: reaching your Goal by freeing your emotions  
      Caution: reaching your Goal by refining your thoughts Power: reaching your Goal by freeing your thoughts  
      Perseverance: reaching your Goal by refining your actions Aggression: reaching your Goal by freeing your actions  
      Observation: reaching your Goal by observing and using the Mode most appropriate for the occasion.  
      The 7 Attitudes are:
       
      Stoic: sees life as if they have seen it all before Spiritualist: sees life as if they have never seen it before  
      Skeptic: sees life like it can always be disproved Idealist: sees life like it can always be improved  
      Cynic: sees life as opposite to what appears to be Realist: sees life as it appears  
      Pragmatist: sees life practically and through the Attitude most appropriate for the occasion.  
      The 7 Body Types are:
       
      Lunar: rounded, pale, emotional; good for lifetimes dealing with one on one Inspirational contact (relates to Server) Saturnian: tall, durable, lean; good for lifetimes dealing with Inspirational issues for groups (relates to Priest)  
      Mercurial: witty, quick, wiry; good for lifetimes dealing with expression one on one (relates to Artisan) Jovial: round, fleshy, large; good for lifetimes dealing with being in a central position of expression for others (relates to Sage)  
      Martial: fiery, reactive, high-energy; good for lifetimes dealing with actions affecting people one on one (relates to Warrior) Venusian: soft, sensual, warm, charismatic; good for lifetimes dealing with being open, approachable, and accessible to larger groups (relates to King)  
      Solar: bright, spirited, small and frail; good for lifetimes needing to be in the center of everything (relates to Scholar)  
      *A note on Body Types: There are no "pure" Body Types. There is usually a combination of two to three influences. In addition there are three "eccentric" Body Types that a person can have for some of their more extraordinary lives. They are Plutonian, Neptunian, and Uranian. They are rare and specific so we won't go into those here.
       
      There are 7 Centers and you may recognize them as relative to the Chakras if you are familiar with Chakras. As you study the Michael Teachings, you will find that while there are similarities, there are also very different ways in which "Center" is used as opposed to "chakra".
       
      Though there are 7 Centers, a human body usually only uses one Center habitually.
       
      There are "higher" and "lower" Centers but they are not better or worse; the "higher" and "lower" only refer to the level they are sourced from and affect. The "lower" Centers are more of the Physical Plane and affect the body, while the "higher" Centers are more spiritual and affect our connections beyond the Physical. Since so much energy is involved in the sustaining of experience in the "higher" Centers, it is extremely rare to be Centered in a "higher" Center, but instead they are Centers accessed for specific purposes. The "higher" Centers are accessed through either practice, meditation, randomly, or through intense trauma.
       
      The 7 Centers are:
       
      Instinctive: this center travels with you from life to life like a floppy disc. It stores all of your experiences ever gathered and all of your areas of growth still needed and all the areas you have come to peace with. It isn't very intelligent, but is more a storehouse and protective device. It is where all of your past lives are remembered and even this lifetime's history. It is very automatic. Higher Moving Center: this is the Center relating to a pure connection and recognition of ENERGY. It is pure creativity and recognition of beauty as it is. It is experienced when you feel awe in seeing a landscape or piece of art, for example, or when you feel completely connected to everything around you, seeing its perfection as it is. This is the most accessed of the "higher" Centers and sex can sometimes trigger it. Moving Center: this is the Center that governs our body movements and actions. Those who are Moving Centered are action-oriented and take in life through their bodies. Emotional Center: this is the Center that governs our sense of connection to others emotionally and within ourselves. Those who are Emotionally Centered take in life through their feelings. Intellectual Center: this Center governs our beliefs and thoughts and communication. Those Intellectually Centered take in life through analysis and reasoning. Higher Emotional Center: this Center is your pure sense of LOVE, total, complete unconditional Love, or as Michael calls it, "agape" (pronounced a-GOP-ee). It is felt when you completely allow yourself or another to behave, think, be, in any way that comes but without fear or judgment. Higher Intellectual Center: this is the Center where absolute TRUTH is experienced, where whole complete insights and "knowing" reside.  
      Although these descriptions are far from complete, they are good starting points and you will be most concerned with only the Moving, Emotional, and Intellectual Centers at first.
       
      PARTS & TRAPS:
       
      Knowing yours or someone else's Centering is truly helpful in understanding how a person takes in life, but there's more: the PART of the Center.
       
      Within each Center resides actually ALL other Centers, kind of like a pie. So the Intellectual Center, for instance, will have an Emotional Part, an Instinctive Part, a Higher Emotional Part, etc., even an Intellectual Part (pure Intellect then).
       
      These PARTS are how the person puts their experience back out into the world after taking it in!
       
      They are also called TRAPS because a person can get so caught up in using only that PART that they forget to balance themselves with other parts. For instance, a person might be Intellectually Centered/Emotional Part. This means they take in life through what makes sense to them: observation and analysis; but then bring it back out into the world through Emotions, meaning they might get very emotional over their thoughts, but have no way of getting it out. The Emotional Center has no "voice", so the Intellectual Center can get caught in a Trap, thinking, analyzing and reasoning, leading them back to emotions that then go back through reasoning, giving rise to more emotions, etc. Eventually something has to give. What will then happen is that person might act out with their Moving Center. They might get angry and lash out, or they might actually cry, taking an action that helps get them out of the Emotional Trap.
       
      Most people have their Centering and Parts in the "lower" Centers, such as Emotional Center/Moving Part.
       
      Remember that many solutions are found in bringing in the neglected Center of the main three (Moving, Intellectual, Emotional). If you are Emotionally Centered, Moving Part, you will have to bring in the Intellect in order to balance yourself. This means that you need to add THOUGHTS and COMMUNICATION to your ACTIONS as you react to FEELINGS.
       
      To help you understand each PART/Trap, I will share the ways I understand them:
       
      INTELLECTUAL PART: This person will have lessons around how to take the input from their basic Centering and express that back out into the world appropriately. They may be excellent at communicating, but they will still have a spectrum of lessons and challenges in this area.
       
      EMOTIONAL PART: This person will have lessons around how to take the input from their basic Centering and how to process the feelings that arise from it. They may have deep emotions, but have little way of actually showing it. This is their challenge then in many cases.
       
      MOVING PART: This person will have lessons around how to take input from their basic Centering and how to actually behave as a reaction. They have a lot of energy, but they are learning how to direct that appropriately back out of their bodies.
       
      There are 7 Chief Negative Features (or fears) that you choose from in your teens. You usually choose two. One is your PRIMARY CHIEF FEATURE and the other is your Secondary. The Primary affects and challenges your attaining your GOAL, therefore affecting more of your personal experiences, and the Secondary affects and challenges your MODE, therefore affecting more of your relationships and intimacy issues.
       
      The 7 Chief Features are:
       
      Self-Deprecation: fear of Inadequacy; your not being able to live up to yours or someone else's standards, leaving you weak, insecure, and incompetent. Fear of NOT BEING ENOUGH. Arrogance: fear of Vulnerability; wanting others to live up to your standards, or fearing your standards not counting, leaving you vulnerable, judgmental, isolated, and alone as you are seen as not needing others. Fear of BEING TOO MUCH.  
      Self-Destruction: fear of Worthlessness; feeling that you have no worth or value unless dead or dying for someone/something else, leaving you with ongoing sacrifices for others with no gain for anyone, even extending into getting a terminal disease. Fear of GETTING TOO MUCH. Greed: fear of Scarcity; feeling that you won't get all that is out there of worth to you personally; leaving you fixated on one or two things that you cannot satisfy as a way to maintain your sense of self. This can be food, affection, sex, money, even vague things like not enough "love". Fear of NOT GETTING ENOUGH.  
      Martyrdom: fear of Losing Control; a strong need for being in control of everything in your space even though that is impossible. This leaves you feeling victimized, burdened, and complaining. Fear of LOSING CONTROL OF SPACE. Impatience: fear of Missing Out; you are always fighting the clock, trying to control before being controlled, leaving you intolerant and agitated. Fear of LOSING CONTROL OF TIME.  
      Stubbornness: fear of Change; you cannot and will not deal with anything new and against your already-set opinions, ideas, and environment. Some people who have Stubbornness actually can appear like they are adventurous and changeable, but look closely to see if they are actually creating "the more things change, the more they stay the same." Constant change can just be a way of avoiding dealing with actual changes. Fear of ANYTHING DIFFERENT.  
      If you have read through the entire Introduction, you have just touched on all the very basics of the Teachings! This is just the tip of the iceberg, but it gets more and more familiar as you start to apply it.

      November 6, 2005
      Troy Tolley, Channel
      Michael Chat – Open Floor
       
      [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your questions and as we understand it, Lori is first.
       
      [upstaate] I am asking for a Mini Energy Report for this month.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      November marks the middle of the cycle emphasizing the processing of this year’s Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance on a collective level. This means that you have entered the psychological season, so to speak, which will allow the processing of the fears that are collectively generated in response to “inadequacies” and “vulnerabilities.” In most cases, this season of processing the collective fears is not done intimately, but played out in politics or larger-scale events.
       
      In this season, the emphasis on inadequacies and vulnerabilities has been glaringly evident in American politics.
       
      Even the concept of “Democracy” is being scrutinized to the point of revealing the absurdity of its lack of true implementation and weak points. There is a “quiet storm” brewing in the American (north) politics and November appears to be a pivotal month in defining how that will play out publicly. We are not speaking ominously, but simply stating the obvious: revelations are on the horizon and they will occur with grace or they will occur with tragedy, but probabilities show that they WILL occur; more specifically, a “domino-effect” of infrastructure collapse in what you call your current government (in the United States). When we state that that this “will” happen, we realize this word implies solid prediction, but we say that word in response to a 97% probability. In other words, the momentum is in place, regardless of how drastic a change might be made at this point, and is headed toward a “wall.” It is highly likely this momentum will hit that wall. At this time, we simply do not see your current President of the United States completing his term. We can also state this with some amount of unusual certainty because of the anticipation of those in the Astral; “all eyes” are focused for “the show.”
       
      To summarize the “mini-report,” then, in terms of world events: it appears most of you will find some kind of impact at some point as a result of the inadequacies and vulnerabilities being revealed within the current government of the United States. The pivotal period of time appears to be during this month, November, but the public results may not be obvious until later.
       
      On a more personal note, you may find yourselves walking through a period of time now wherein the flaws of OTHERS seem to be taking their toll on you. Distractions with the failures of OTHERS may be used to your advantage as a means to avoid your own flaws and vulnerabilities. This year's passage through the season of Chief Features appears to have a stronger emphasis than usual. A great many things have happened in the world over your year that have left the public angry and in want of finding someone to blame. Some years move through the Chief Feature season with ease and other years are buried in its emphasis. This year's months of October, November, and December may find each of you with at least one major challenge involving how to maneuver through the effects on you because of another person's choices or actions. It is a powerful opportunity to explore your own Overleaves, how you respond to the flaws and choices of others as they impact you, and doing this from the angle of the positive poles and make a shift in the dynamic that would normally leave you trapped. Regardless of your own Chief Features, there will still be an emphasis around you in relation to the year's chief features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance.
       
      The end of your year is always a passage through the evaluation of what you accomplished in the time that has passed since beginning of the “new year.” Therefore, November usually marks the painful passage of time wherein COMPARISONS begin to be your means of assessing your days. We suggest keeping check on your own Chief Features as you begin to find yourselves comparing. Comparing is a valid process of evaluation, but many of you use it against yourselves or against others. Reminding yourselves that it is a TOOL for use, not for abuse, will help in the month ahead.
       
      [Annsge] Deciding whether to follow up Lori's question….What are the probabilities of a complete change in government? What will this change expose?
       
      [Annsge] In US gov't?
       
      [Michael_Entity] The probabilities of a complete change are nearly inevitable, though most likely not fully implemented before another approximate 50 years. However, the current administration is precariously built in a way that as one member is: pulled into scrutiny, the entanglement from that person reveals other flaws, creating a near-cascade effect in revelation. The long-term change will be based on the exposure of a corrupt government whose impact upon the public is far more insidious and oppressive than ever considered possible. This is not sinister, but merely a result of withholding and hoarding of resources that have always been available. Much of what are concerns in the American culture and society are concerns that are utterly reversible within a single year, if resources were freed. The short-term change for which we see November as being pivotal is simply the revelation about the incompetence, manipulation, and deceit that permeates the current administration. We have always seen this presidency as the pivotal presidency that has the potential to end an outdated system of government, voting process, and public assistance.
       
      [Tmk1802] Back to basics. Is Male/Female ratio constant or does it change from life to life?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It is a constant. What changes is the ways in which this is expressed and the ways in which it is eventually balanced. The higher ratio is a good indication of how your incarnational process began, as Male bodies are 100% Male Energy and Female bodies are 100% Female Energy; therefore, if your ratio is higher Female, it is fairly safe to say that you began your incarnations in the bodies most comfortable. As the Essence evolves, so does the want for balance, so choosing bodies to counter your higher ratio begins at some point.
       
      Eventually, bodies are no longer the only means to bring balance and expression, but Events, Relationships, and Experiences are utilized.
       
      [Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself?
       
      [Tibtyk] And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.”
       
      In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved.
       
      The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof.
       
      However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake.
       
      Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough.
       
      Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love.
       
      Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence.
       
      Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.”
       
      It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life.
       
      Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen.
       
      Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens.
       
      In all cases of experimentation YOU will be key.
       
      You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK.
       
      You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO.
       
      And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you.
       
      [llawryf121] I've posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context.
       
      In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamourous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work.
       
      In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality.
       
      Or Manifesting Essence.
       
      The fusion of Personality and Essence into a cocreative process.
       
      We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system.
       
      They are the language of glamour
       
      [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively
       
      [Michael_Entity] Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar.
       
      [Carrot Wax 1] k, now my question has changed to extend this question to Sages and other roles :-)
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality.
       
      This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible.
       
      In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him.
       
      The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.”
       
      Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak.
       
      The walls that isolate the Scholar are in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.”
       
      Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories.
       
      For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas.
       
      How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed.
       
      We have already addressed this issue in a lengthy session in the past, offering insights for all Roles. We will include that in the transcript for this session.
       
      In that case, we believe we have addressed Matthew's question for elaboration, and will respond to Suz's question as the final question.
       
      [Note: In lieu of adding the transcript mentioned, here is the link: Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3)]
       
      [freyaisissuz] We would like comment from Michael about exactly what is a secondary conscious channel with an agreement with Michael. Thanks
       
      [Michael_Entity] We are unclear as to what your question is.
       
      [freyaisissuz] What does Michael say is a ‘secondary conscious channel’ so students will better understand the concept?
       
      [Carrot Wax 1] is there a context this term was used in?
       
      [Michael_Entity] We do not recognize the phrase as being a part of our teaching, though one of our channels may have chosen it as a means to convey a concept.
       
      [freyaisissuz] It is information given to Al by a Michael channel.
       
      [kittlekats41] can you rephrase it Al?
       
      [llawryf121] probably should follow up with the original channel
       
      [upstaate] it was channeled that Al had an agreement with the Michaels, using the phrase, “as a secondary channel” A fragment will have an agreement to be a primary channel. What is a secondary? secondary conscious channel, that is
       
      [kittlekats41] would ‘conscious channel’ mean as opposed to a trance channel perhaps?
       
      [freyaisissuz] That's how Al understood it, Kate.
       
      [Michael_Entity] We would suggest asking that channel, as this phrasing did not originate with us. We suspect this is a phrasing used by our channels to describe a fragment with whom we have agreements to channel through, but not on a largely, public scale. It is not uncommon for certain phrasing to be generated by the channel as a means to convey a concept we have not created phrases for, ourselves.
       
      [freyaisissuz] That makes more sense, he doesn't care to go back to the previous channel.
       
      [kittlekats41] Would you have time perhaps to elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael?
       
      freyaisissuz: Excellent, much better phrasing, Kathryn – Al
       
      [Michael_Entity] We do not have time, but that is simply the nature of our plane.
       
      [kittlekats41] hehehe of course, silly me:-)
       
      [Michael_Entity] We will conclude here, but include a response to that final question for the transcript.
       
      [ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO FINAL QUESTION]
      (Disclaimer from Troy: I am asking this question as best I understood it, but I am uncertain if I conveyed it to Michael in the way the questioner meant it.)
       
      Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.”
       
      “Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only primary philosophy.
       
      “Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students.
       
      “Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy.
       
      “Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy.
       
      “Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time.
       
      “Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself or herself. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us.
       
      “Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material.
       
      In some cases, there is overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student.
       
      Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.
