  1. ENERGY REPORT AUGUST 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) AUGUST continues with an even deeper dive into the Cynic Attitude. We have not much more to say about that this month than the previous months, so we suggest re-reading the past reports for review on the nature of the Cynic Attitude and its effect in this collective context. This deeper dive into Cynicism may be what helps break people out of the Negative Pole that is rejecting the truth around them. Many have gone so far past the truth that they are “circling back” to see it from a new angle and with that new angle there may be a new level of consideration for acceptance. When we say people have “gone so far past the truth,” we mean that the rejection of those truths is harming them and the wounding is becoming more obvious. When the truth is rejected long enough, it harms. It is often said that “the truth hurts,” but rejection of the truth can cause HARM. There is a difference. HURT describes one’s reaction and resistance to something. The truth CAN hurt, but it can never harm. HARM is a violation of one’s boundaries or being. Someone may be hurt by the truth, but the truth never violates one’s boundaries or being. Sometimes the truth must be handled kindly, carefully, and delivered within an appropriate context and at a pace that can be understood, but it will never harm. To put all of this into perspective: the TRUTH that humans are destroying the planet and affecting the climate in ways that are detrimental to life on Earth is inconvenient, uncomfortable, and may even hurt, but knowing this truth does no harm. However, rejecting this truth is causing great harm. Over time, the rejection of this truth has done far more harm than accepting this truth would have ever caused in inconveniences and hurt. Making changes in one’s life to accept the truth of responsibility for one’s part in reducing harm to the planet may be inconvenient and hurt a little, but it will not harm you. Continuing to ignore the truth and continuing to do what has always caused harm will, eventually, cause so much harm that one MUST take a look at it in a new and different way. This is what is happening on a collective scale now. Most Humans have been ignoring or rejecting the truth to some extent that has continually caused great harm and this has gone on so long that it seems the only thing left to see is the harm. This is why the world can seem so overwhelming at the moment. There comes a time in a Mature Soul World when everyone must address the truths that have been ignored and the harm this has been caused by this. It is up to everyone to see this, allow the hurt, and stop the harm by accepting the truth, making new choices, taking new actions, and being a part of the solution forward. **** [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: AUGUST 16th - 22nd: ENERGY SHIFT - UPDATED VISIONS - This shift appears to bring with it a wave of recalibration or clarity about visions, dreams, the future, plans, etc. It is a time for reconsidering if those dreams will still work, and how to adjust them to work out better, if possible. This is a wave that may bring a high sense of possibility and enthusiasm for efforts that may have once seemed too much to consider. NO NEXUS - We see no nexus in August HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER AUGUST: WHAT TRUTH/S DO I REJECT OR IGNORE - whether one likes it, or not, the truths that have been neglected or ignored or rejected for generations can no longer be neglected, ignored, or rejected. What truth do you think you have ignored or rejected because it was too inconvenient, hurt too much, would cause disruption to address? What truth is no longer able to be ignored if you are truly honest with yourself and Essence? Consider how you might embrace this truth and allow yourself the hurt so as to avoid being harmed or causing more harm.

  2. ENERGY REPORT JULY 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY launches or continues (for many) the deep dive into the Cynic Attitude and it has not been a comfortable dive for most of our students. July does not likely bring relief from this. The Cynic Attitude is a perception of life that points out everything that is not obvious to others, or what the Cynic determines is not obvious to others. This helps bring a perception of life and of the world that is not blinded by optimism or hope or faith or denial, etc. The Realist will always point out what is obvious and the Cynic points out what is not obvious. Pointing out “what is” and “what is not” is quite valuable for the world so that blind spots are avoided. However, when the Realist or Cynic lose their perspective and simply determine and decide for themselves what is and what is not, they become quite challenging perspectives to endure. When Cynicism in the Positive Pole, Contradiction, it points out what is not obvious. When Cynicism is in Negative Pole, Denigration, it only points out what is not. The Cynic in the Negative Pole has decided what is not or has become consumed by what is not and gets lost in this nothingness. When the negative Cynic only focuses on what is not, there is little left to feel of any substance, value, meaning, worth, etc. Denigration is not merely the feeling of emptiness and lack of meaning, but an effort to prove it and substantiate this emptiness and lack of meaning. This means there are many parts of the self or others around you or world events that are going to be making the case for meaninglessness and providing “proof” of this. Of course, it is all a lie, but when perception is skewed so intensely, everything is distorted. Many are sliding rapidly into this state or enduring it more than usual. A solution to returning to some sense of meaning, substance, value, worth, etc. is to aim for the Positive Pole of the Realist, which is OBJECTIVITY. If you are feeling the weight of Denigration and the “see, I told you life sucks!” mentality, you have lost all objectivity. You have lost your willingness to be open to the truth. As we have mentioned several times, the greatest threat to all of you is the loss of capacity for hearing, knowing, seeing, expressing the truth. When any Attitude is in the Negative Pole, it is rejecting the truth. If you are feeling the weight of the Cynic perception, it is likely you are rejecting or not seeing the truth. Objectivity means being fair. It means seeing the whole picture, not just a fraction or it or the dominant color or lack of color. The easiest way to understand how to be objective when you have lost yourself in Denigration is to LOOK FOR MORE. Look for more information, look for more insight, look for more time, more patience, more of anything that breaks the trajectory toward the black hole of Denigration. This is true on a global scale, as well. There is MORE. There is so much more than what you are seeing. There is so much more than what you focus on as the problems, challenges, and suffering of life. Your focus on these things is important and valid, but THERE IS MORE TO SEE THAN THIS. It is okay to see more than this. It will not destroy your capacity to focus on problems if you find time to take a break and breathe, treat yourself. It will not destroy your capacity to help others if you take a moment to enjoy a conversation or play a game or read or have a drink or take a bath. There is more. There is always more. If you find yourself spiraling into thinking or feeling that life is only one thing, you must do the work of knowing, creating, finding, the truth that there is more than this. NOTE: it may be helpful to get into the practice of keeping Cynicism in check as this is only the beginning of the wave of emphasis on this perception. **** [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: JULY 7th - 12th: ENERGY SHIFT - HIGH sensitivity, emotionality, grief, mourning, nostalgia, vague sense of loss, and “something” impending and looming. This is not the first time this wave has hit our students. It is all anxiety or the locked loop/trap between the Intellectual and Emotional Centers without any Physical/Moving. It may be helpful to MOVE. Get out, walk, dance, be in contact with nature, or create something with your hands. JULY 26th = NEXUS: CONVERGENCE - an unusual merging of parallels focused on relationships recovering, healing, and being revitalized over time when they were once thought lost to time, conflict, or distance. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: EVEN WHEN YOU SEE AND KNOW AND EXPERIENCE EVERYTHING, THERE IS MORE - We are repeating the important note to carry with yourself as a reminder that what you see, know, and experience matters, but if your focus has shifted into a tunnel vision of darkness, heaviness, disconnection, etc. it may be time to consider that there is more, and to be open to it, look for it, invite it and BE it.

  3. Troy: Have a great session everyone! Bringing in Michael (and their 1050 taints). LOL how do I always end up there? Okay, so let's see what today brings... do we have a future as humans and will we keep our humanity? ******* ⓘ Troy is now known as MEntity MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin. Troy has posed their question to us. We will respond. It may be of note that we do not have "taints." The short answer to the question of "do we have a future as humans and will we keep our humanity" is YES, OF COURSE. However, your world is changing. It is always changing so you may have heard this message all of your life and have seen it documented in history as if every major event marks a shift in your world, but the changes we speak of are cumulative and tend to be unnoticed until they are noticed. It is true that your world changes if a nuclear bomb were to drop or if a war breaks out or a pandemic spreads globally. There are always catalysts for change and they come often with some being major and global, some being minor and local, and some being more like speed bumps or steps. But the change we speak of today is about the changes that come over time to reveal an evolutionary shift, not just an event around which one must adapt. In our teaching, this evolutionary shift is described in the weight of the masses being more Mature Soul than any other Soul Age. This actual shift came rather quietly in the late 80's, marked by the "Harmonic Convergence" that was coordinated. It was not this event that caused the shift, but rather that it marked the shift. It is now 34 years later for you and the reality of that shift is becoming more and more obvious in ways that are not about a momentum that will carry you forward, but about a necessity for participation and contribution that will carry you forward. This shift began 30+ years ago as Young Soul ideas were used in a way that helped support Mature Soul concepts. The Young Soul paradigm was often about "me first" and it led to quite selfish and greedy and competitive positions in life as well as people finding themselves in positions of neglect, exhaustion, overwhelm, and being ignored, left behind, forgotten. The Mature Soul shift started to introduce the idea of "me first" in a way that encouraged CARE for the self as way to be better available to themselves and each other. A great deal of the "new age" movement then was about owning yourself, your reality, and taking responsibility for your own happiness, well-being, joy, etc. This allowed the Young Souls to find footing in Mature Soul concepts, but it also created a quite self-centric path of philosophy that has become quite problematic and harmful today. Many who are quite immersed in "the new age" of today are Young Souls, with some learning how to implement Mature Soul concepts and some continuing to simply impose Young Soul values. The reason we share all of this history is to give context to what is next for those who are participating and contributing to the world that is changing, not just in superficial or worldly ways, but changing in fundamental and baseline philosophical ways. It is a Mature Soul world now. To exist in this world means changing fundamental base assumptions about how the world works now. The world still has Baby and Young and Infant patterns at work, so they will always be there in pockets that are communities or countries, but as a WORLD, you exist in a Mature paradigm now. The future for humans, regardless of what it may seem at the moment, is quite incredible. We cannot predict the future, but we can comment on the higher probabilities, and most futures for humans are quite shockingly different from your history. Those futures stand as probabilities at the moment, which means that they do not exist as you know it. They are floating in potential states that require paths to them. These paths are created by you. And when we say "you," we mean YOU. Not the world, not the community, not a country, but all of you, individually. Because there is no such thing as collective patterns without the individuals who contribute to those. So the answer to whether there is a future for humans is a resounding YES, OF COURSE. We see no futures without humans in some form. But the futures with humans who continue to keep, nurture, and evolve their humanity do require the shift in assumptions about how the world works. It is still valid to continue the movement in awareness toward how best to care for yourself, how to self-care, how to treat yourself, give yourself a break, catch up with yourself, etc., particularly for those who are in positions in life where culture, society, family, or country weigh heavily and oppressively upon them. However, it is also time to put AS MUCH emphasis on how to CARE FOR OTHERS. It is the only way forward. All other paths die out. The only futures that exist with humans in some form and with humanity intact are those where humans began to see the planet as home, and its inhabitants as fellow earthlings, not nuisances and threats to ignore, fight, exploit, or destroy. We do not offer this with urgency or as an ominous ultimatum. We offer this as part of your learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn. You have a choice. You are learning how to choose. You are choosing how to learn. And choices have consequences. The consequences can be seen all around you now. They are not distant. They are not "somewhere else." They are not "someone else's problem." They are here, now, and everyone's. In a Young Soul paradigm, the base assumptions are that you are never obligated to be concerned with or worried about or focused on any other life than that of your own. This works beautifully for this stage of development in maturity for the soul as every Essence must fully differentiate and define itself before it can fully embrace and BE with others. Otherwise, the sense of self can be lost and consumed. The Young Soul stage ensures that no Essence ever loses its own stamp of self-awareness and identity that carries forward all the way home. The soul/Essence merges so profoundly in the higher planes that if this Young stage were never fulfilled, the Essence would be lost to oceans of thought, feeling, and consciousness. This has never happened. But this is why the steps taken to care for yourself are quite important and valid as you begin to care so deeply for others. But the quiet impulse to do better, be better, contribute more, participate, make changes, alter habits, etc. are all impulses that are inviting you to be IN the new paradigm and to help anchor it in ways that help those who come after you. Which, in truth, will be you, too. So the answer to whether the future for humans will include your humanity is: that is up to you. The efforts you make to ensure your self-care while you make the changes and efforts to care for others matter for the future of humans and humanity. On the smallest of scales, on the most individual of choices, it all matters. We will open the floor now to questions. ****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN**** Yes, Janet. JanetH: Michael I feel so deflated thinking all we can do is to care more for ourselves and others while the world burns. Is that it? Is there anything more concrete? MEntity: This deflation comes from having been imprinted by an outdated Young Soul paradigm. This is why it is so exhausting for many to consider caring at all because caring seems to mean either dramatic contributions that prove obvious and immediate benefit, or that it is empty and pointless and meaningless so why care at all. All of you are carrying the burden of this imprinting and it is no longer useful or necessary. JanetH: Food for thought. Thank you. MEntity: CARE BECAUSE YOU CARE. DO WHAT YOU CAN DO. These two things matter more than you may ever know while you are alive. From your position, you may not know the effect that your supposedly meaningless moment of kindness did to inspire someone else who had greater resources and strength to do what they can do. Donations matter. Aligning with causes matters. Speaking up matters. Educating yourself about others matters. Dropping defenses against changes that are uncomfortable and exploring the importance of those changes matters. JanetH: Thank you Michael. MEntity: You may not be able to stop the world from burning, so to speak, but that is not the goal. Controlled burning is an option. By this we mean that some elements of civilization, culture, and society are going to fall. They have to. It will not be pretty. And people may be hurt as this happens. The goal is to be in charge of creating new spaces, new ways, new paths that are there so that as things change, people have a place to land, so to speak. JanetH: That is a vision I can begin to grasp. Thank you. MEntity: It matters that you are not on fire. That is the goal. JanetH: Wow. Yes MEntity: NEXT BrianW: Hi Michael, could you describe specifically how humans on both an individual level and as a civilization will most likely change and adapt to the effects of climate change over the next century? What elements of civilization, culture, and society will likely fall, and what will take their place? MEntity: The greatest changes we have seen in nearly all futures is a move in two directions: controlled environments (architecture, design, materials, etc. that accommodate and help to reduce the harmful effects of the changes) and global standards (global government, economy, currency, policies, protections, etc.). The latter could never have worked in a Young Soul paradigm without exploitation, but in a Mature paradigm, the chances are quite high that the structure of power is one that sets standards that are valuable to all. These changes are only in the very beginning stages of consideration and might be considered fantasy now, but this shift begins to be taken more seriously around 2030 as a viable future. There are many threats to consider when implementing such a future, so there will likely be no overnight shift in this direction. However, housing and shelter and reduction of waste and more sustainable resources are all in the works of development now and will continue. The move toward more mobile, modular, and eco-friendly cities is on the rise and can save many populations over time. The elements that are nearly inevitable to collapse are religion, power and wealth disparity, debt-based economy, binary thinking, gender, social, and racial and status roles, power structures that are not focused on service, etc. NEXT (last question) Wendy: Is there a way for us to effectively fight the authoritarians taking over the world and not hate and fear our fellow citizens and governments that are making that push? How can we navigate this from a higher perspective? MEntity: Yes. The fight will be a fight, whether you hate or not. The fight is a fight because it is a fight. This will not change. The choice to fight and be a part of that fight, however directly or indirectly, matters. Wendy: It feels like we're losing and it's terrifying. MEntity: Hate indicates that which one profoundly does not understand. This is why hate is considered a "bad thing" and tends to be something one is to reject or avoid. But it is only information. For those who hate others because they do not understand them and refuse to understand them, this is a kind of hate that harms. For those who hate others because they do not understand them and they make every effort to understand them, this is a kind of hate that is justified. It is one thing to hate someone because they are different from you. It is quite another to hate someone because they are actively seeking to harm you. For those of you who hate those who are out to harm you, it is okay that you cannot understand this. It is not something that can be understood. Once you allow yourself permission to stop trying to make sense of it, the hate starts to shift into motivation, purpose, meaning, fuel. One of the reasons hate can be so consuming or exhausting is because one either continues to reject understanding when understanding is readily available, or when one continues to insist on understanding that which can never be understood. As for whether you are losing the fight or not, we know from experience as Warriors and Kings that winning and losing are only ever steps in directions that will always have next steps to consider. For example, in the United States the Civil War was won and slavery was ended. This was a win. A profound win. But this step has led to next steps of addressing racism and systemic oppression that have been allowed to flourish. This does not make the Civil War less of a win, but it puts into perspective that the steps continue. This is the same when there are losses. A loss is never permanent. Great changes and thrusts of evolution can come from losses. Our point being: one cannot measure the value of effort and contribution by the moments of loss or wins, or by the fears or hopes during a fight. It is the fight that matters. It is the next steps that matter. Always make the effort. Always take the next step. This is the way forward. The wins and losses are only information about what still needs to be done. We will conclude here for today. We will see each of you in your futures. Your humanity intact. It is okay to hate, fight, despair, and be worried, but it is also okay to love, to rest, to trust, to drink in the beauty of each other and your world because it is not going anywhere. Goodbye, for now.

  4. This! I don't think I've ever related more exactly to an Energy Shift. My husband and I took MDMA last Tuesday. It had been about ten years since we'd done it last, so we were both a bit nervous. The experience was profound. It has been a chaotic year and I'm so thankful he asked my mom to watch the kids for the week so we could have some time alone. I realized we had drifted apart in ways and I had closed myself off to him in other ways. The experience brought us back together, remembering why we chose to be together, and helped us see the truth in that and the crazy ride it's been. It was totally surprising and healing for me. For him. I fell in love with him all over again. The next few days were hard. I expected much with serotonin levels fluctuating, but I felt ALL the emotions Michael described in the Energy Shift. Waves of grief for how closed off I'd been, nostalgia, sadness for that brief moment of Essence Contact that I wish could last forever. I expressed this to my husband and he felt the same. Anyway, I let myself feel those feelings while working out in the garage, listening to tunes, and refinishing a dresser this past week. Scholars need projects, and "working with my hands" has helped keep me out of the Emotional/Intellectual trap. Feeling less of a mess now.

  7. Seeing the convergence at the end of the month really blew me away because I've started feeling this possibility of my task companion and I reconciling with each other. Before the energy report I started seeing her name and a number I associate with her everywhere. Like it was calling my attention to something. I don't know what it's all about to be honest but I started to get a sense of something brewing. Then I saw the convergence description and was like "oh" to say the least. It's something I've been done with for a while and it wasn't something I thought I'd ever revisit this life but apparently we may have different ideas. I don't want to get my hopes up, but at the same time it's very important to me. If nothing happens then so be it, but I'd rather take the possible chance than not if something arises. If there's anything I've learned from this life if it's important to you, it's worth the risk to at least try even if it doesn't pan out.

  8. I admire the work Marc E. Elias, and so many others, are doing to save democracy in the U.S. Marc E. Elias is the chair of Perkins Coie’s Political Law Group, where he is a nationally recognized authority and expert in voting rights, redistricting, and campaign finance. He is also considered one of the leading recount and post-election attorneys in the country. As a litigator, Marc has handled hundreds of cases involving politics, voting rights, and redistricting. He has successfully argued dozens of cases in state supreme courts and U.S. courts of appeal. He has argued and won four cases in the U.S. Supreme Court: Virginia House of Delegates v. Bethune-Hill, Wittman v. Personhuballah, Bethune-Hill v. Virginia State Bd. of Elections, and Cooper v. Harris. Where minorities constituted more than 90 percent of active registered voters, the average minimum wait time in the evening was 51 minutes. When whites constituted more than 90 percent of registered voters, the average was around six minutes. In case you missed Marc E. Elias's Tweet: States that have enacted new voter suppression laws in 2021: Arkansas Florida Georgia Iowa Kansas Montana Texas States where my team is suing over new voter suppression laws: Arkansas Florida Georgia Iowa Kansas Montana Texas We are not done fighting for democracy.

  9. @Wendy's session today, POF 7.19.21 A Unique Holding Pattern for Us All, reminded me of what Michael said for Helpful Thoughts Over July. Also, remember this Q&A @Mike Cleverly had with Michael at a POF on November 16, 2016. It was posted in JanetE's blog entry The IS, Non-Terrestrials, and Trump. Oh my. MikeC: I would also like to ask - What part are the Student Cadres playing in this giant dance over the next decade - could you describe the work of a few configurations that are in motion? MENTITY: Our students are incarnating for their own personal reasons, of course, but in terms of collective timing of these incarnations, the network of Configurations currently seek to contribute collectively toward HUMANITARIANISM. Many of our students' Essences remain deeply moved by Humanistic Philosophies, and those concepts are in the process of being applied on a greater scale through Humanitarianism. However directly or indirectly, however clear or distorted, nearly every Configuration and individual who is our student is working on adding to that collective momentum toward securing in your species the anchor of Humanitarianism. However private your tastes, however painful your struggles, however blissful your loves, and however playful your days, everything is being funneled into how to anchor Humanitarianism as a default starting point and internal reference for all incarnations. This may sound amorphous and intangible, but that is because it is a cumulative effect from thousands upon thousands of fragments across multiple lives each. Over the next 10 years, most of our students are grasping the concept of choice like they have never comprehended it before. Many of our students have taken for granted the power of choice because it has only been seen in terms of how it affects the individual life. When the power of choice is seen as hooked into the shaping of futures for humanity, the concept of choice expands from being a hand-held tool to being that of a collective vehicle.

  10. @Wendy I gotta tell ya, I feel so much better having left Florida. Granted, I'm not from there, so it wasn't hard to detach from it. But, the Northeast feels so much more sane. The bullshit is of course everywhere - some loony militia guys were just arrested on I95 between Providence and Boston last week. They drew the cops' attention because they were hanging out with long guns on their shoulders on the side of the road after running out of gas on their way to their fucking Nazi cosplay camp or whatever, so, clearly they're not the brightest specimens out there, but their presence is still alarming. But, overall, this region feels better than Florida by many measurements. I'd be interested to hear what you're experiencing there now, because I still care about the place and especially the people I love there. If you feel like it. I have noticed some second-guessing and feelings of aggravation that shade into mild despair about my life choices, lately, but I feel like I can recognize and navigate out of them fairly easily. It helps to remind myself of Michael's words here about the poles of Cynic, in those moments. If I let those feelings pass, they don't fester. The cycling through them nearly every day is kind of annoying but whatever. It's hard to separate this out from my usual cycles of annoyance with myself and the world. My bigger emotional dramas have much longer arcs. I'm just a temporary flesh flag on a book deadline! This weekend felt like an energy shift in a different way for me, in fact. We drove to my dear friend's summer place in the Catskills, that used to be her family's Borscht Belt hotel, for decades. Being there is an anchor, as is this friendship, so it felt like a return to pre-pandemic life in a profound and matter of fact way. The three adorable teenagers in the house took over the care and entertainment of my child, and I spent the weekend hanging out with a couple of great ladies, surrounded by nature, feeling like I'm about to age into my future self as the latest generation of Jewish lady to hang out in the Catskills in the summer, talking with the other Jewish ladies and eating kosher Chinese food. The teenagers have all recently come out as various kinds of nonbinary, and are at that age where they're still soft innocent children, as well as grunting awkward teens, and my god they filled me with tenderness.

  11. This month’s report is spot on…I feel attacked. @KurtisM if you feel up to it, send me your email and I will email you a copy of the cover letter format I used to get interviews and how to modify it for each job you submit to.

  12. Convergence lines up with my Plan to change jobs when I get back from camping. Also to go drive more so I can get my full license. I've been job researching and got my resume done to a satisfactory level. No clue about cover letters. Was gonna try earlier but I lost my momentum to addictions, so I thought I should just go on a trip and recommence on return. Even if im going to be contradicting a lot on my camping trip of people's consumption choices and dismissive perspectives, the break from home will be nice, hopefully refreshing. I can see relationships revitalizing after the trip.

  13. thank you Troy!! feels like an early birthday gift I love to validate this report with some channeling I did earlier today!! the past nights I've been dreaming of floods and water and rain and thunder. It was like a cry for help from the depths of Mother Earth We need to realize Pachamama is us, and do what we can to heal her and each other!!

  14. Well, I have been prone to random bursts of tears the last few days so this tracks, personally… I’ve also been feeling the call to heal, to dig deeper into myself to unblock past traumas that are still affecting my life in ways I’m still not fully cognizant of… and to bring my moving center more to the forefront, as I’ve been consciously and subconsciously neglecting it for quite some time. I’m curious about how the late July convergence will pan out… I’m cautiously optimistic. I’ll take relationship-based healing and revitalization as a birthday present over any material objects any day!

  15. Oh, man I HOPE so. I've lost so many family and friends these last dozen or so years. I suppose I have been experiencing the negative pole of cynicism for a while now. Thank goodness I'm not feeling much of the Energy Shift on top of that.

  17. I have deleted this person's account. I have no patience or interest in hosting people who willfully make life worse for everyone else through their stupidity, ignorance, and rejection of reality. Being informed and making informed decisions about vaccinations are important, but being a full-blown anti-vaxxer who refuses to even consider the facts and truth is not someone I want infecting our community. So... buh bye.

  18. Thank you, Troy! This energy report validates some of my own thoughts in recent time. I have been feeling this deep aching and sadness over the state of the Earth and the many species that live alongside humans and including humans. If all 7.9 billion people on the Earth were to make at least some minor lifestyle changes towards living in ways that align with the Earth and life that it would make a significant difference for everyone. I think it is time to look at the consequences of personal choices in life as not only having an individual impact but expanding upon that to consider the impact on others and the Earth. We are not just individuals existing only for ourselves but we exist as part of a greater collective. Our life choices and decisions have an impact on the whole and in turn impact each of us as we are part of that whole. We are part of the Earth.

  19. @Leela CormanI've only lived in FL 5 1/2 years and for the most part it's been great for me but over the past year I've been thinking it may not be sustainable for me. Even though I'm in blue Palm Beach County, the hostility of RWNJs is palpable. The amount of new development down here is insane too, and I think it will unlivable in a few years because of that. On my regular routesthere are thousands of new homes being built and I can't even imagine just the amount of additional traffic that will create. I've lived in the NE for almost my entire life but when I go there now it just feels cold, cramped and dark to me. Indoors, even in the summer, I just can't get enough light to function well. I can't stand driving on roads that were made for a fraction of the amount of vehicles on them now. I know I've said this before, but the sunlight here has been a total game changer for me in terms of depression. I'm also able to be outside so much more -something that I found really challenging when I lived up north. I had lots of friends and community up there too but I find here I'm so much more complete on my own that I don't need other people as much, or in the same way I used to. Just curious where you were in the Borscht Belt? I lived there for 7 years and it's where I met @Uma. I'm so glad that you are feeling better up in RI!

  22. I didn't much feel this energy shift but maybe it's because of how much I'm moving these days and also got outside a good amount. I know Michael said that things are generally looking up but it's a constant struggle to believe it. It's very hard to get past the tyranny of the minority here in the U.S. and the encroaching fascism. Here in FL I literally can't leave the house without being reminded of it.

  23. @Connor, @Janet, @Maureen , And all or other archivists and scholars. Thank you. Thank you for the deep dives. Thank you for the near encyclopedic knowledge. Thank you for the search skills. Thank you for organizing, collating, and unearthing reams of information. The information we have here is vast and intimidating. Because of you, what was once lost is never forgotten. Thank you.

  24. Well slap my buns with gravy and call me a biscuit, the energy report is here ahead of time! So far the summer's been a weird mix of holding pattern and change. Despite the heaviness of cynic energy, I hope it does yield positive results collectively. Michael has generally been hopeful in their outlook, though it's sometimes hard these days to know if collective changes are actually afoot or if it's just reverberations from personal echo chambers. Fingers crossed.

  25. Lol, I'm kind ruined because I'll always think of one person's summary of the Bhagavad Gita as "...and Krishna calls [Arjuna] a whiny little baby for 700 stanzas." I'm sure there's more to it than that, and that's not to take away from the insights. It just makes me chuckle a bit.

  27. Has anyone else been as lethargic as me this past week? I really think I'm feeling this Nexus. I've had very little motivation or energy and have just been dragging myself from day-to-day. Also, vivid dreams of friendships with people I wouldn't recognize in 'this' parallel.

  28. So I was reminded today that the US (and other parts of the Americas) has two big eclipse events coming up in a few years, so mark your calendars and maybe plan a trip! Get your eclipse glasses, filters, or other safe viewing method ahead of time. I'm particularly excited as the paths of both eclipses intersect here in Texas very close to where I live (astrologers make of that as you will), so I'll be super anticipating these. If interested, lots of good info here: https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com October 14, 2023 - Annular Solar Eclipse Totality for this one goes through the western US (Oregon to Texas) and swings down through parts of Mexico and central America into South America (mostly Colombia and northern Brazil). The moon's apparent size will be slightly smaller than the sun's, so at the height of the eclipse the sun will look like a thin ring, known as a "ring of fire." Not quite as dramatic as a total eclipse, but still really awesome. Protective viewing equipment is needed at all times. April 8, 2024 - Total Solar Eclipse This is the biggie, the last solar eclipse in North America until 2044-45. Totality comes through North-Central Mexico and crosses the midwestern US (Texas to Lakes Erie and Ontario), then follows the US-Canada border (covering northern New York and New England as well as extreme southern Ontario and Quebec...Niagra Falls is gonna be popular), and finishes in far eastern Canada (New Brunswick and Newfoundland/Labrador). This is the whole shebang... darkness, corona, temp and environmental change, the works. Protective viewing equipment is needed at all times except during the brief moments of totality.

  29. One year ago today... “Do not get lost in a sea of despair,” John Lewis tweeted almost exactly a year before his death. “Do not become bitter or hostile. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way.”

  31. Well, I can't say I've been feeling particularly Cynical, necessarily, but I've definitely been feeling the full brunt of this Energy Shift. The new school year starting in three weeks, my parents' mortality, the potential of eventually losing my hair (which doesn't even seem to be happening at all, but my mind just decided that would be a fun thing to have anxiety about for awhile, I guess)... it's been a fun week. Mindfulness meditation and working out have helped, though.

  32. These stories are nice but I still can't bring myself to watch the olympics because of how much of an asshole move it is to press on and have the olympics happen at all while we're still in a pandemic. The people in Tokyo and Japan in general do not want this and the selfish organizers still went ahead anyway. Having a majority of mature souls on this planet means nothing if the most destructive members of the younger soul ages are still occupying all positions of power, and governments and corporations are allowed to do horrible things unchecked. I'm sick of American Republicans, I'm sick of the Chinese Communist Party, I'm sick of psychopaths like Rodrigo Duterte being allowed to run countries. I'm sick of the Canadian Liberals pretending they're "good guys" while selling explosives to Saudi Arabia through the back door, and doing the very bare minimum for Native Canadians as they continue to be systemically abused at every level of society. Half the world's countries have become near uninhabitable, and in those that are more and more people are getting excluded because a few people hoard all the resources for themselves. This is not directed at you personally @Maureen, and I'm sorry for this sudden outburst of negativity, but I'm so tired of how much we're all dropping the ball when we could do so much better.

  33. I'm not fond of sports, in general, or competition. I couldn't give a fuck who gets a medal and who doesn't. I'm "seeing" the 2020 (2021) Olympics through the eyes of the news that's being reported. The huge thing that's been standing out to me, to many of us, is how women are starting to take their power back. We see this in women changing their game-playing attire to what they want to wear, what works for them and their team mates, instead of what the Olympics Patriarchy dictates based on men-as-spectators who only want to see women competing in sports if they can be sexually objectified. Women are also taking back their rights to their own mental health and well being. We've seen that with a few women so far culminating in Simone Biles pulling out of competition. It's so telling what "side" people are on, progression vs regression, based on the backlash and then the enormous support Simone has garnered from all around the world. What these women are doing is showing the world, showing themselves, that they can compete on their own terms, that they get to choose not to be harmed. Even with all the pressure they are choosing their truth over a greater harm, a lie that is told over and over through a Young Soul World influence and imprinting, They are choosing the health and well being of their physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies. They are "getting it" and we're getting to witness something greater than winning a medal, something greater than competition. We are seeing women, as people, growing more healthy, more whole, right before our eyes, and while they're at it welcoming in the Mature Soul World, and it's beautiful. Also of note, I saw a news item this morning and it warmed my heart. It shows a maturity, perhaps a Mature Soul maturity, of sharing, caring and moving away from the hurt of "losing"... of having only one "winner". Tokyo Olympics: 'Can we have two golds?' - high jumpers share win An incredible Olympic high jump final ended with both Qatar's Mutaz Essa Barshim and Italy's Gianmarco Tamberi taking gold medals. After an exhausting two-hour competition, the pair couldn't be split, having recorded best clearances of 2.37 metres. The athletes were offered an opportunity to take part in a jump-off. But in a moment of sportsmanship, they agreed to share the title, sparking huge celebrations. Both had three failures as they attempted to match the Olympic record of 2.39m and, with error-free records on countback, could have fought for sole possession of the title. Instead, they made history - it was the first joint Olympic podium in athletics since 1912.

  34. Yep, we are being hit in the face with truths on so many levels: environment, vaccinations, income inequality, work, racism. Slap, slap, slap. I find this encouraging because of the possibilities that can come out of this and I'm glad people are getting hit. yes, it hurts and can be overwhelming but we gotta wake the eff up.

  35. Some of you know that I cry everyday -it just feels so good and freeing! But I haven't particularly felt the "HIGH sensitivity, emotionality" more than the usual haha I've been sleeping like 8 hours at night (I usually do 6 or 7) plus 1 hour naps during the day. My dreams involve connections with my guides and visits to my White Palace (I call this my sanctuary of healing and replenishment) I've been also waking up one hour earlier to practice channeling and intuitive art. Early mornings are my favorite time...it's still dark, I am super lucid, the silence and calm brings out my creativity I also got back to my intuitive readings and energy healing broadcasts on YouTube (Tue Thu and Sun, 10am CST/4pm UK for those who would like to stop by!) my new schedule works well to keep me grounded and inspired, with a sense of purpose I finished the final season of The Good Place....(what a wonderful show!) And I had a dream where @Amanda and Kristen Bell were sisters! LOL (Perhaps she's your entity mate!) holding you and your dad in Love and relief, dear ((( @AnnaD)))

  36. Well, her vibe wasn't what caused her to be banned, but when she revealed herself as a full-on anti-vaxxer... I just don't have any interest in being lenient with such toxic and dangerous people who are willing to compromise the health and well-being of their family and those around them just so they can claim they "have a right to choose." Yeah, you have a right to choose and there are consequences to that choice. Others may humor her or look the other way or pretend that it is just a personal choice, but it is far from personal. She and those people who think like her are responsible for extending, expanding, and making this pandemic grow deadlier and faster, and who spread misinformation, lies, conspiracies, and disinformation. I'm just not interested in hosting someone who brings that into our community. It's already something we have to deal with in the world. I want ONE space where we don't have to deal with that bullshit.

  37. Thank you. My dad was of the Silent Generation who lived through polio scares, and suffered through all the childhood diseases, mumps, measles, whooping cough. He told me harrowing stories of being too weak to walk for ages after whooping cough and missing a lot of school. He also talked about working as a teen at the old tuberculosis sanitariums when the outdoor cure was being tried, and how crowded they were. As someone who has to weigh the risks every time, antivax rhetoric really upsets me.

  39. Now I know why I've been so sleepy for the past few days and have had anxiety-ridden dreams. Visited a friend out of state early in the Nexus, so that wasn't bad, but since I've gotten home, it's been BLAH. Feeling better today. Michael said that I'd been sliding to Cynic for quite a while, so this reminder is so valuable.

  40. I can't say I felt this particular Energy Shift. I actually had a nice and relaxing weekend and the start of the month had some ups and downs but wasn't bad at all overall. Then again, with my Self-Deprecation and anxiety, I'm used to often having an underlying feeling of coming doom, so I might not even notice it that much anymore Also, I might still slip into that state, as Michael mentioned, so we'll see. Michael provided some good advice on how to deal with it when it comes up, so that's something to keep in mind. @AnnaD I'm very sorry to hear about your dad, Anna. I hope you and your family manage to navigate these coming months well. He's lucky to have you around.

  42. Thank you for this. My brief 2 cents here is about not trying to understand certain people: Don't try to be understanding to fascists. Don't allow neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and other kinds of neo-fascists into your communities, your online platforms, your bars, your rock shows, etcetera. The thing that needs to be understood in this matter is that they do not respond to attempts at understanding, most of the time. Sure, there are occasional stories like the one about the guy who got invited to shabbes dinner every week at college until he stopped being a Nazi (that guy wrote a memoir, he's the son of the founder of Stormfront, don't google them if you value the sanctity of your search algorithm). But they are the exception more than the rule. Learn from the punks of the '80s and '90s, in the US and the UK: those people respond to attempts at understanding by returning the next night with twenty of their friends, armed. Deplatform them where you find them. Drive them back underground. Say no to them in your spaces. There is a hard, bright line. Fascists exist on the other side of it, and all policy, both personal and official, needs to reflect that. You don't have to seek them out to fight them unless that's your cause, just know that it's a bad idea to try to make friends and be nice to them.

  43. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: May 2000 ] <cyclist> Is sexual congress present in the astral, or is this strictly a physical plane experience? MEntity: What you experience as "sexual congress" while physical is but a portion of what "sex" actually is. The Astral is highly sexual as is each plane progressively. We define sex as "moving in unison with something other than self." Some of you know this experience, with or without genitalia involved. The majestic experiences of seeing the sky on certain dusks or dawns are a highly sexual experience in larger terms. Many of your sexual dreams are more "accurate" than waking sex. The "closer" to Tao we all move, the more sexually, uninhibitedly, we share.

  44. I've observed this negative phase of the Nexus/Convergence for a while. I'm really exausted, especially today, but really tired everyday, so I need much sleep, and can't get myself to do much than staring at something and keeping the couch warm... And at the top of this is this "waiting". The Pillars of Harmony is part of the solution for our bodies. For True Home I just say Nature. Nature in all its varieties resonates with our bodies, so I will go out and play with the waterhose now ... and I've highlighted mine below. True Spirit: Independently-Mobile Beings (e.g. animals), Dependently-Immobile Beings (e.g. plants), Ritual, Labor, Arts, Technology, and Communication True Health: Exercising, Feeding, Socializing, Sleeping, Schooling, Entertaining, Meditating True Home: "Ocean," "Desert," "Wilderness," "Jungle," "Plains," "Urban," "Mountain"

  45. This actually resonates a lot for me. I have been struggling with my perception of humanity for the past few months due to constant disappointment and 'special surprises' by the people I interact with and I became a bit of a hermit throughout this whole pandemic. My patience is really being tested. Even so, i want to be fair and give things a chance before dismissing or reaching a conclusion. To look at all these things that have been happening and to own it has been overwhelming. I suppose this is what happens when one takes it so much information to process continuously. I have shifted more focus on going out a bit more. Not in city centers or towns, but out in natural areas. It helps to remind myself that there is actually more to life and more to experience than being trapped in the drama of our current human civilization.

  47. Ever since I read about the Borscht Belt, I've wanted to go--even before Dirty Dancing and The Marvelous Mrs. Mazel. I drove through the Catskills a few years ago and loved it so. My father went fly fishing up there. My late sister's husband (BIL) and his wife (one of my best friends) high-tailed it out of St. Augustine Beach Florida and moved back to CT. They lived in a fantastic house (with an elevator!) and just said "fuck it," to their rich neighborhood's Trumpers and anti-vaxxers. They were already weirdos because she'd replaced all the plants in their yard with native plants. The overt racism didn't help either. My BIL is a scientist, and the anti-vax stuff turned him into a Democrat from a Romney Republican! Yay! It's interesting to live in IL where the difference between the northern Chicago area and southern IL is so stark regarding vaccinating.

  49. I'm truly sorry you're having to go through this. It sounds eerily familiar to what happened with most friends and relatives when my Mom had cancer. She was diagnosed at North American stage IV (the most advanced) and survived 3.5 years after diagnosis. A palliative care physician here in Canada wrote a book that proved very helpful when I was trying to make a kind of peace with what was happening. It was also helpful in finding the words / timing, etc to have a lot of important conversations, and make a lot of important plans / arrangements. Both with and about Mom. Publisher's website https://www.penguinrandomhouse.ca/books/96075/what-dying-people-want-by-drdavid-kuhl/9780385658843 Free Preview here https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B004LGTSF2/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1&asin=0385658842&revisionId=&format=4&depth=1 Of course, Mom and our immediate family knew at diagnosis what it all meant - an extremely aggressive primary tumour, with multiple distant metastases. Almost everybody else though ... It never ceases to amaze me how many inaccurate opinions "smart" and "educated" people can develop about how health care works, and about how the human body works.
