  1. Reading this too early in the morning. At first, I didn't notice the comma

  2. Argh, why do I keep missing these? That's it, I'm putting an alert in my calendar for the fourth saturday of every month. I wonder what I said that poked at Christian's brain, but I'm glad he was skeptical about his own skepticism. We should all remember to do that from time to time.

  3. I really enjoyed hearing about everyone's cynosures! What a great show. Thanks for doing this! @Rosario I freaking love parsley and put it on everything. I always keep a bunch in my fridge or grow it. It symbolizes 'fresh' and 'health' to me. Most dark leafy greens feel that way. My husband thinks I go a little crazy with it, like when I sprinkle it on a salad. I just want more fresh on my fresh, damnit!

  4. I'm always watching these after the fact, but I'm very glad I watched this one because I was unclear on exactly what cynosures meant in this context and this made it much easier to parse. Cats, dancing and harmonizing! Swimming, too.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. I'm feeling the part about examining and confronting truths that I've been afraid to before, right now. A little early. Personal ones, not world ones. A situation where I need to tell someone close to me how their actions have hurt me, which I've been afraid to do. There are multiple truths here that hurt and now I'm feeling like I have hit a wall and can't pretend they don't any longer. Come to think of it though, on the national level, the January 6th Commission hearing feels like a version of this too. I listened this morning, and the contrast between the testimony of Capitol police, in all its anguish and granular detail, and the utter fucking gaslighting of the GOP around the coup attempt, is stunning. I'm usually ACAB all the way, but these guys are human beings telling the story of a traumatic event. Did anyone else listen? It was shocking even though I already knew the basics. I've had a sadness headache for days. I'm so goddamned excited for those updated visions they mentioned! PLEASE! UPDATE MY VISIONS!

  13. 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.

  14. BACKSTORY: The term, Cynosure (pronounced SIGN O SURE), came through unexpectedly in response to a personal question in a group event. This was a new term that was also very familiar in its meaning. We then followed up with some additional channeling added to an episode of TLEtv. Below is a synopsis of what we had learned before the Michael Speaks transcribed here. CYNOSURES - Our North Stars of Existence This new concept revealed to us recently is a great example of how the questions of students over time help shape and reveal the depths and nuances of this teaching and keep it alive. You never know what might come from a question worded a certain way or asked again in a new context. So keep your curiosity high with Michael. Michael says we have only barely scratched the surface of what there is to learn. The following is an edited version of the original reveal of the concept of Cynosure. First, the definition of a Cynosure is - NOUN - “a person or thing that is the center of attention or admiration” FROM MICHAEL: All fragments set up a group of cynosures that can become anchor points, memory triggers, comfort sources across lifetimes. There are three tiers to these cynosures: the cosmic, the worldly, and the personal. Cynosures are objects in nature or as a result of creativity, or particular people, who act as contact points between your current consciousness and all other versions of your consciousness across time and space relative to that object. Cosmic cynosures are not usually implemented until there is off-planet travel, but even planet-bound older souls will know a cosmic cynosure in the form of a teaching such as ours. Worldly Cynosures can be such things as a geographical location or natural wonder or long-standing creation that endures time are cynosures, such as constellations, the Grand Canyon, or The Pyramids. In the Personal tier, there are objects such as musical instruments, or tools, or even fashions that act as Cynosures for a set of Personalities or lifetimes that link together over time and space. People can act as Cynosures, as well. Think of these as navigational elements of the soul. They tend to become more obvious or noted in lifetimes or periods of time when one needs to re-center oneself and align with a greater direction that is part of a greater pattern. They are your "North Star," so to speak. If you have recognized a cynosure in your life, it means you are likely manifesting Essence or working on it, and connecting to parts of you that exist across time and space and dimensions who aim for the same thing: Home. This aiming for home is not as an escape or as some distant place to reach, but as a reclaiming and remembering of the part of you, that is part of the wholeness of existence. The part of you that you bring with you wherever, however, and whenever you are. ADDITIONAL CHANNELING: Cynosures can be recognized by 3 distinct symptoms: +they trigger a sense of remembering something/recognition; +they tend to invoke awe, enthusiasm, or persistent curiosity +they tend to be true forever and not lose value in meaning over time -troy *** May 23, 2021 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. Today we are asked to elaborate on the concept of Cynosures. Cynosures is not a new concept but it happens that we were able to respond to a question that allowed us to refine the concept. It should be noted for those who are curious that this was not a "new word" through Troy. This word would have had to have been in his bank of consciousness "somewhere" for us to use it. There are many words and images and input that a body takes in that is never accessed or made consciously relevant. If this word had not been available in our channel, another word would have been chosen that would approximate it, such as "beacon," but we have used that term for other elements and prefer the more meaningful "cynosure." It has been asked if Cynosure is different from instances of resonance to past lives, or objects and people who inspire. They are different. Cynosures are about awe, admiration, and attention that is specifically determined to be relevant. Other instances of resonance are based on what has become meaningful and relevant due to experiences that are processed and evolution that is gained. Or they are assigned inherently in mathematical relevance, such as Essence Twins or Entity Mates. These are instances of Recognition and Resonance due to either inherent meaning and relevance or cumulative meaning and relevance. A Cynosure is chosen. Cynosures can overlap with instances of Recognition and Resonance, but they are specifically chosen. For example: If an Essence wishes to explore the art of expression through music, a guitar or piano may be chosen as a Cynosure before birth and this becomes a "north star" for triggering curiosity, awe, and meaning in anything related to guitars or pianos. If a Personality has had a particularly meaningful moment of truth, love, or beauty, that Personality may "bookmark" those particular colors of the sunset as a Cynosure, or sink into the movement of the music or singing that defines the moment and assign this as a Cynosure. All subsequent lifetimes may then feel this moment of awe, admiration, and attention...when the same or similar sounds are heard. If there is a moment of awe, admiration, and attention given to a teaching that has altered your life in some meaningful way, then the concepts of that teaching can become a Cynosure for future lives. If a concept that is a Cynosure is approached, it triggers the very real experience of "remembering" the concepts but finally having words to form around them. Students of any teaching, such as ours, assign that teaching as a Cynosure. To help us better deliver and clarify the concept of Cynosures, we will open the floor to your questions. See your moderator for how to participate, if you are unfamiliar. ****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN**** Yes, Maureen Maureen: Are our Trues Cynosures? MEntity: They are close to being Cynosures. The difference is that those factors that contribute to your "Trues" in a single lifetime are more customized to the Life Task and dynamic of the Personality for that lifetime. Those activities that support your Pillars for the Life Task may be cynosures, but they may also be relevant only a certain set of Personalities across lifetimes. Once a Cynosure has been chosen, it is true and meaningful to ALL Personalities. Let us clarify: If an Essence chooses a Cynosure for a Personality, such as the guitar, then all subsequent lifetimes will also find the guitar to trigger awe, admiration, and attention. Even if a much later lifetime hears guitar or sees a guitar, there would be a sense of great admiration that may or may not be relevant to the lifetime. However, when a Life Task is chosen, Essence looks across various lifetimes where similar tasks have been approached through similar circumstances in similar Overleaves, and sets up a range of activities that would help support the Personality in its successful fulfillment of the Life Task. Some of these may be cynosures, but they are not automatically cynosures. Did this answer your question, Maureen? Maureen: Yes. Thank you. MEntity: NEXT, Luciana Luciana: Is it possible that a person doesn't have Cynosures? MEntity: No. By the time one is an older soul, one would have hundreds. If there is no recognition of a Cynosure in one's life, it is likely a matter of A ) lack of mobility or access to experiences, people, or perspectives; or B ) lack of trust in the self to honor that which triggers curiosity, excitement, and awe; or C ) because one has a fairly specific Cynosure set up for the life that has not been recognized, yet. NEXT, Ro. Ro: In a way you responded to my question: Can our Enlightenment or Muse Position be Cynosures? How different is the dynamic? Also, can you give us an example of Cynosures from other sentient species (whales/dolphins/off-planet species)? MEntity: Healer, Enlightenment, and Muse Positions can be Cynosures because they are not hidden behind a layer of potential obscuring that would make it difficult to remember. For example, a Love Position may be your Love Position across multiple lifetimes, but in a lifetime where that person is born to be an "asshole," you may not see or feel that admiration, awe, and attention that defines a Cynosure. But Healer, Enlightenment, and Muse Positions tend to be with no layers of obscurity. They are what they are. They trigger awe, admiration, and your attention quite immediately, regardless of how they are presented. Cetaceans have collections of musical notes that tend to be Cynosures. Some parts of the ocean or shores are also Cynosures. Some weather patterns or temperatures in currents can be Cynosures. Caretakers have similar Cynosures to Humans, but with far more Cosmic Cynosures, such as the ecosystem of a planet or the movement of planets in a system. NEXT, Amanda AmandaV: Since 0 isn't an option and we can potentially have hundreds… what's the average number of cynosures for humans? Is there a distinct difference among different soul ages? MEntity: Infant Souls average 1; Baby Souls average about 3; Young Souls average around 21; Mature Souls average around 75; and Old Souls average around 150. NEXT, Ludmila ludmila: Do concurrent lives share the same cynosures chosen during the current life? Like a bleed-through. MEntity: Yes. It is one of the only factors that crosses those distinct lines of existence. FINAL QUESTION: NEXT - Uma Uma: Michael, can we have an update on the IS manifestation, and how you see the pandemic unfolding from your perspective? MEntity: We see all Infinite Soul Hosts as active and taking on the trajectory that would allow for Manifestation. We cannot see if Manifestation is imminent, but these Hosts are likely to make some relevant and meaningful contribution on a scale that goes beyond the obvious even if there is no Manifestation. The only factors we have found that shifts the Manifestation into something more imminent are: an acknowledged mutation of the virus that would spread and kill faster; a war between two (or more) major forces; or the collapse of the internet/electricity networks. These conditions would bring about Manifestation because they are disruptions that would require great focus of direction for recovery. We can see these possibilities because they are extreme but that does not mean they are likely. The other paths to Manifestation are set in far less dramatic scenarios that may be more subtle in effect. We can say that if one of the identified Host becomes central to a major event, it is likely that all Hosts would Manifest within days of that event. We cannot predict this. As for the pandemic: it is not over. It is in a lull and that lull may help gain footing, but it is not over until it is over for the planet. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

  15. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2007] [Question]: My question concerns identifying Input sources when one is receiving information/energy from a source beyond one’s self, whether in channeling, tarot, dreams, etc. I once had a dream in which Michael said, “Every time you have thought is was us, it was us.” Could you give me specific ways that a student who is openly seeking contact might know when they have contact with the Michael entity, as opposed to their Essence, guides, or other teachers? In what ways might we experience Michael’s influence in our daily lives, when the channels are not around? [Michael Entity]: We try to be as present as possible for all who call upon us, even if the channel is a “fraud” and even if the student is “delusional.” We are aware of when any of you call upon us. Our presence, however, is as clear through a channel, or to a student, as that person is with himself or herself. This is why many of you who begin accessing higher sources of contact (for lack of a better phrase), whether this is us, or your own “Higher Self,” the voice or energy “sounds like you,” or feels like your own imagination. This is because it is a necessary part of the process in clearing out a channel to a higher source that you first clear out all of your own ideas, prejudices, and presumption about what should happen or what should be the responses to your inquiries. One of the easiest and most direct ways of learning to differentiate our energy from your own is to go ahead, freely, with your use of imagination as your form of contact. Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for “extra-sensory” perceptions. As you keep track of your contact, you will begin to notice glimpses of validation for contact with us that are clearly not “you.” There is not as easy a differentiation when accessing your Higher Self (Essence), however, as that IS you to a great degree. But that is not your question, so we will not elaborate at this time. We can also add that many of our channels and students interpret our energy as Blue, as a Crowd, as literal images of Kings/Warriors, and as a sphere of some kind. These are only a few examples, but each finds his or her own means of interpreting us. We’ve seen our energy interpreted by your dreams as a medallion in the past.

  16. I've really been on a Mumford and Sons kick these last couple days. I love this album, even as the band experimented with a new sound adding in electric guitars and more percussion over the folk/acoustic styles. The album has a sort of resigning acceptance feel to it. The tone of many of the songs is quite nostalgic in a way that maybe things could have been better, could have been different, but it wasn't so. After last week's exhausting endeavor there is just something I really connect with in these songs and it all ties into this song, which is my favorite of the album. "Believe" and "Ditmas" are also coming to mind, but there isn't one song on the album I don't like. It just makes me smile in an accepting but sad way.

  17. [Excerpt from TT: 2016-02-09 Personal Session] Question: I've been thinking a lot about the concept of "caring appropriately" mentioned in this month's energy report and whether I've been caring "too much" or not enough. I think I'm prone to caring too much to the point of wanting control over things I can't control, and caring only toward certain people I want to care for. I tried to distance myself from the work to reduce my stress level, but now I'm having a hard time caring enough. What would "caring appropriately" look like in this situation? MEntity: Caring appropriately is a dynamic dance among the opportunities and pitfalls of Having, Being, and Doing. In more delineated terms, this is a dynamic dance among the Lower Centers so that one must navigate between the pitfalls that are Sentimentality, Reason, and Frustration and the opportunities that are Perception, Insight, and Productivity. MEntity: To understand where one is in the spectrum of Caring, it can be helpful to assess where you are in these terms. MEntity: If you are caring too much or too little, then you will struggle with the attachments that are Sentimentality, the excuses that are Reasons, and the repetitiveness that is Frustration. MEntity: If you are caring appropriately, then you will see beyond symbolism and bypass attachments to make choices because they are the unconditionally right (loving) choices, not based in only expectation, investment, and reward. You would stop depending upon excuses and see if your caring is the honest and authentic (true). You would take a look at your patterns of frustration to see if there are different paths or approaches that can be made toward that which you desire (beauty). MEntity: When you care appropriately, it does not mean it will not have any sentimentality, reasoning, or frustration, but that you look at these states to see if they are valid, or only generated due to circumstances. MEntity: For example: MEntity: You can love someone and then find that they grow ill and become a burden that is difficult to navigate. You may wish for the past (sentimentality) and feel guilty over your resentment even as you feel obliged to care (reasoning) and you may feel nothing you are doing is making a difference (frustration). These are products of your circumstances. They WILL be a part of the range of experience that be extracted from the event because they are valid. MEntity: If you continue along those lines, you are not caring appropriately. It would be better to have someone else care. MEntity: However, if you acknowledge these states as inherently natural to the event, but consciously and actively aim for rising above these, you can care appropriately. MEntity: Caring appropriately means INCLUDING those states, but not being consumed by them. MEntity: Caring appropriately means consciously aiming away from attachments to prescribed symbols so that you can see yourself clearly reflected in the event (perception/inspiration). It means consciously honestly assessing if you are learning anything and that your participation is authentic (insight/expression). It means being willing to aim away from emphasis on necessary repetition and routine and adding to that the necessary energy that may endure and uphold desires and intentions (productivity/action). MEntity: If you are unwilling or uninterested in aiming in those directions, you may not care enough, or you may care too much about something unrelated. MEntity: Three quick key thoughts can help you navigate: BE PRESENT, BE HONEST, and BE ACTIVE in your choice to care. If you cannot, then it is time to consider alternative directions.
