    [This articles duplicates a post in the Fringe & Whackadoodle Studies Club and may be discussed there: Homo Naledi Species] [DanielaS] Recently a new hominid species, named Homo naledi, was discovered in the Rising Star Cave system in South Africa. I am wondering if you are able to tell us about this species. Specifically, 1) Was Homo naledi a species of Human sentience? 2) When did it live? 3) Did H. naledi intentionally place their dead in the Rising Star cave? 4) If so, why and how did they get the bodies into the cave? [MEntity] This was yet another variation (and there are many more) that were branching out from around 3 million years ago. This line of species did host Sentience, as did most to some degree for some time as we were still working out the most stable line for development. This line was highly intelligent, but weaker and more frightened in nature, developing superb methods for hiding, cloaking, and stealthy traversing, often using cave systems as tunnels if they were available. Tunnels were "honeycombed" throughout the regions where this line would settle, and they developed "slippery" methods for moving through tight spaces by using a kind of lubricant wax from native plant life. In much the same way that many animals will know when they are dying and then maneuver themselves into closed spaces, this line of humans would choose to die in much the same way. Wounded, ill, elderly would work their way into designated "wombs" for the end of the life. Designated caretakers would tend to and honor these wombs, or help the weaker to enter, but most were not "placed" there. We refer to these as "wombs" because they were considered symbolic representations of birthing canals and wombs at the time, since this is how it was known that life would start. It was considered to "make sense" that one return to the "womb" as a way to return to life. Some would choose to enter the wombs even when not ill, wounded, or elderly, but with the idea that they could be born again together. As more evidence of other lines emerge over time and with better methods for extracting information from the planet, we can help in filling in the information as best we can.

    [Excerpt from MMW: Understanding your Overleaves] Bobby: With my Mode being Perseverance and the fact that our Mode is how we relate one on one, would you perhaps speak about how exactly you see that I do that with this Mode and what obstacles come to the surface most for me when I attempt to use it? MEntity: For Perseverance, "ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS" is a motto to live and die by. No amount of talk or presentation or explanation cuts it for Perseverance. You have to see results. This is true of how Perseverance relates to others and to the self. ... Perseverance despises weakness and insecurity and excuses, particularly when they are only used as a means to avoid Right Action. Perseverance learns about himself and others by constantly assessing the value of ones Actions. This can lead to relationships that are full of scrutiny toward your own Actions or lack of Actions, or can lead to relationships where attention is focused on others and what they are Doing or Not Doing so as to avoid your own insecurities, weaknesses, and excuses. Eventually, when Essence is Manifest and True Personality is present, the pitting of the self against others, and the pitting of the self against the self, comes to an end. Perseverance shifts into unity and combination of strengths to help fill in for weaknesses, not out of resentment and obligation, but from true vulnerability and responsibility. Weaknesses are no longer despised, but are healed. Actions are no longer assessed in terms of superficial standards to comply with expectations, but are assessed in terms of HARMFULNESS. This is the difference between UNCHANGING and PERSISTENCE. UNCHANGING is not about moving forward, but about holding someone or the self back. UNCHANGING is about locking someone into their flaws and insecurities and not letting them grow until they show some sort of acceptable remorse, guilt, shame, etc. PERSISTENCE is about moving forward, flaws, insecurities, frustrations, and all. You Persist. You learn how to carry everything and keep moving forward. This is true for yourself as well as any relationship. You draw the line if there is HARM.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2004] Note: This excerpt is from follow-up that Troy pursued with Michael following the November session, which occurred just after the 2004 re-election of George W. Bush. Troy: United States’ population is approximately 303,000,000 (according to Michael). Soul Age Demographics: 17,450,000 Old (about 6%) 123,000,000 Mature (about 41%) 90,000,000 Young (about 30%) 67,850,000 Baby (about 22%) 5,000,000 Infant (about 1%) Note: Also from the November 2004 session: [Questioner] also aren’t many of the “older” souls still children, and not of voting age? MEntity: Of the 40+ million fragments we would refer to as “older souls”, it is valid that approximately 25 million of these fragments are under the legal voting age.

    [Excerpt from OMW: Validating Your Profile] MEntity: Though the Role is how one "shines" in the world, it requires the presence, or Manifestation, of Essence for that to happen on any regular basis, and this is something a Personality may or may not strive to do in a lifetime. However, Casting will always show up, as it is how the Personality defaults to functioning on a day-to-day basis.

    [Excerpted from a private session originally posted on February 8, 2016] Question: What causes hospital psychosis? Is this psychosis somehow a breaking down of the wall between the physical and astral plane? Do you have advice for others on how to support or assist a loved one who is experiencing this condition? One of the primary contributing factors to the tendency toward "psychosis" in a hospital is that it is teeming with activity that is at the edge of the Physical and Astral. In concentrated areas of healing, intensity, death, recovery, illness, etc. the activity at the edge is at about the maximum level. This is true of hospitals, sanitariums, many prisons, and some cities. When an individual is in her 6th or 7th Internal Monad, or when an individual is in or returning from a deep state of consciousness, this edge is far more accessible. It is not a cause of accelerated death anymore than getting into a car is a cause for a car accident, but the connections are intertwined in such a way as to make differentiation moot. It does accelerate death, and approaching death does accelerate access. From what we can see, the processes of rewiring and/or unwiring of neural networks in the brain are connected to the intensity of access. We know these may not be technical terms, but they will have to work for now. The rewiring process happens in recovery patients and the unwiring process happens in those declining in health. Rewiring can bring access, but it is fleeting and eventually fades, while unwiring expands and deepens the access in ways that allow for not only visual and auditory access to independent structures, but also to project constructs of internal "demons," fears, fantasies, and memories. It is very much how the Astral works, in general. Many who are nearing exit from a life will begin to access this as a means of adapting to a new dimension of consciousness that will come after the exit from the body. In the Physical Plane, the density of matter and the implementation of Time can help to sort through thoughts, feelings, fears, desires so that choices can be made in a creation process leading toward or away from those fears, desires, etc. In the Astral, these filters of matter and time are not as high, so one can be bombarded and overwhelmed. This is where the "life flashed before my eyes" concept comes from, because that is, literally, what happens near or post-death. Upon death, this will happen many times for some until they can control the process and begin Review. For some fragments, this process begins before exiting. This helps the transition to be less shocking, and the access to Review to be more immediately rewarding. So while in the body, the "psychosis" gives access to the dimension that is coming, and learning how to manage that or understand its existence before death tends to be for those whose Essences already planning the next life. ### end of excerpt Note: You can discuss this material within the original post.

    [This content duplicates a post now in the Fringe & Whackadoodle Studies Club and can be discussed there: Parallels, Concurrents and Adjacent Lives] The two primary questions asked by Geraldine and Martha were asked as part of the TLE Live Chat with Troy Tolley channeling Michael as “MEntity” on October 6, 2010. The additional information was in response to a private question of Martha’s, answered by MEntity. Geraldine: I’ve been asking questions in pursuit of understanding parallel existences, incarnations, concurrents, and then the mentioned but not defined “adjacent” lives. Questions that Martha and I asked dovetailed into each other and all of a sudden there is understanding on “clusters” and adjacent lives.” I’m posting her stuff with her permission. I have yet to figure out all of the nuances to concurrent lives. My understanding has been that concurrent lives are similiar to past incarnations, only “current to now,” and that all will merge into the total number of incarnations once all is said and done. However, one thing that shows up in others’ channeling about past lives is other concurrent lives that were experienced at the same time. For some, these isn’t a recent phenomenon or being old soul. And the concurrent lives are showing as distinctly separate. You’ve said that I’ve had 179 incarnations in this Grand Cycle. I would like a total count of parallels that will not be merging back in prior to the Causal plane, all concurrents I’ve had, and adjacent lives, as well as all incarnations. [MEntity] To respond to this with clarity, we must clarify some of the concepts and terms. We know that you have a fair grasp on the concepts as we have shared them, so we share this only to ensure that we have been clear. We use the term “Parallels” to describe the lives that share the same time, but different space/frequency. We use the term “Concurrent” to describe those lives that share the same time and space/frequency. We use the term “adjacent lives” to describe a broader concept that we have not fully elaborated upon, which is based on a kind of grid that takes on a spherical shape. This concept is closer to how your Essence experiences your multiple incarnations, and is a complex concept that involves linear and non-linear visualizations that can be difficult for the Personality to conceive. For simplicity’s sake, we will say that “adjacent lives” might be easiest to visualize as the intersections of the grid created by processes and themes and how those relate to each other. Most fragments start out with a single lifetime that then begins branching over time like a growing bush might be seen, though many of the branches grow back into each other and creates a mass of weaving and intersecting/parting like vines. Some of those parallels gain a momentum that begins to act as a distinct “trunk” on its own, but eventually begins a merging back into a parent parallel, so to speak. As part of that process of merging, Essence may generate a “concurrent” that shares the same time and space as the parent parallel as that process of merging, which would come after the death of the child concurrent. So the counting of “past lives” is a slippery count that is not static, and is always relative to the current Personality and the time that the count is delivered, depending on many factors. Most branching happens from the late Baby through Mature, and the most merging on grander scales comes during late Mature through Old. If one were to visualize this “bush of incarnations” it might look like the shape of a soft diamond, or double-teardrop, based on the mapping of the incarnations from Infant to Old, with the greatest branching/bulk of lives in the middle. There is no way for us to convey the magnitude of context that is necessary to couch our response to your question at this time, but we will respond with the caveat that more context is necessary. [Geraldine] thank you — you’ve given me a great deal to think about — enlarged what I knew the question was relative to the total and isn’t important as such [MEntity] “The total amount of parallels that will not be merging back in prior to the Causal Plane” cannot be determined, as that would be a prediction, and we cannot and will not predict. [Geraldine] well, I meant of the known ones — or most likely — far deviated from this parallel [MEntity] When we give a count of parallels, the number is only comprehensible when given relative to your position so, for instance, the “Geraldine” that you know currently has approximately 108 parallel versions of herself, but the entire lifetime has over 11,000 variations. Currently, the parallel versions of the entire incarnational cycle that have sustained independence and momentum stand at 5, which may or may not merge before the Causal Plane. We will add that the number of sustained, independent parallels with their own momentum rarely exceed 12 at a time, hence the limitation of the number of Concurrents at any given time. When we give the number of Past Lives, we tend (through this channel) to count Concurrents as part of that number as they are relative to the current Parallel. Of your 179, we would say that 19 were Concurrent. The count of your Adjacent lives is not something we can quantify. Channeling that Martha had received previously concerning “clusters,” her daughter, and herself: [Martha] here’s what they said about our cluster together [MEntity] What we see as your relevant past lives had both of you in relationships of “us against the world.” This is part of a Cluster of lives (group of 5 lives) being explored, focusing on the theme of Independence. The process of exploring this theme has moved you from the “us vs them” to the “us against the world” to “us embraced by the world” to your current focus of “us as individuals.” What we mean by this is that you no longer act in harmony with one another JUST because you are an “us.” Your synchronicity in past lives was a given and taken for granted, almost to the point of losing your individual identities as you looked outwardly to the world. Your current lifetime is focusing on the variables that are unique to one another, so there may be great emphasis on your differences. For both of you, on some level, this may feel irritating and shocking since you have shared such a history of nearly being “one.” But if this lifetime is explored well, each of you would find a tremendous undercurrent of harmony between you that is not affected in the least by your differences, whether in personality, paths, or perceptions. This is the 4th life in this Cluster. The first life was in Egypt of 1320s CE where you were born as sisters with a skin pigmentation that left you as outcasts. The second life was in what is now the Southeastern United States around the 1550s CE as male “Native American” boys whose parents were killed by the Spanish. The third life (most recent) appears to have been near Florence, Italy of the 17th Century CE, where the two of you as mated male and female who could not bear children helped to sustain the spirits of children around you by performing small theatrical productions amidst painful changes in government and occupancy. Martha’s Question tonight which dovetailed into mine: [Martha] You brought up clusters when I asked some questions about my daughter. One was that we were in the 4th life of 5 in a cluster together, and then you told me about her personal cluster around Revelation. So I see they can be between two fragments, or a personal theme. You said they were typical at the 2nd level of each soul age. Can you give us some general info on clusters, and do I have any others this lifetime, whether personal or with another fragment? [MEntity] A “Cluster” is our way of describing various themes that work through a progression in 5 Stages. This is related to the concept of “Adjacent lives” we described earlier, in that the intersections that are generated on the “sphere” of lifetimes are actually in 5’s as the shape is basically a dodecahedron. Clusters refer to the commonality or theme that relates to each intersection that forms a kind of pentagram facet. The 5 lifetimes that make up that Cluster are Adjacent Lives. This is a highly simplistic explanation, as it does not include elaboration upon the dimensions and dynamics involved that are not static, but this visual helps. [Geraldine] hey — anything that helps me visualize — including all of these various geometric forms [MEntity] Every Essence seeks to complete itself on its own terms through various experiences of interest that then form into Clusters that then generate Adjacent Lives, that then grows around Essence much like a crystalline structure that is then added to the Entity. The sharing of Clusters, or themes, helps to create the joining facets between Essences, particularly within the same Entity, and then between Entity Twins, and then across the Cadre, Energy Ring, etc. In general, every lifetime has the potential to move through a stage in up to 5 Clusters, and always through at least 1 Cluster. Clusters always explore a theme from 5 different angles, each relating to a Soul Age, so that a Mature Soul will most likely only ever be at a 4th Stage or Angle in a Cluster, and a Baby Soul only ever at a 2nd Stage, or Angle, for instance. The older the soul, the more flexible the stage of where one is in a Cluster. The Older the soul, the more capable the Essence for actually “going back” and organizing lives into Clusters that were not intentional, but only seen upon retrospection, so to speak, and are then completed during the Old Soul Age. In fact, the entire process of an Entity merging is the “finishing touches” on arranging and rearranging Clusters for the purpose of uniting the Entity as a complete whole, matching facets, angles, if you will, to each other in a multiple of ways for multiple reasons.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Parallels] [s0] It has been suggested that I write a book about my life, is this part of my life task? [Michael_Entity] It would be one way to fulfill the Task, yes. There is no SPECIFIC route with which a LIFE TASK must be manifested. In fact, what is most misunderstood about a Life Task is that you SEEK it, or PURSUE it. In reality, you already DO it. It comes naturally. Incidentally, you are, in fact, in Agreement with several thousand Essences for a book.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: August 2000] MEntity: Every year there is an opportunity at some point, a window, that allows the Personality to have a “break,” an ability to experience perception without Chief Feature. The next two weeks appear to be that window. This does not mean you are not going to experience your fears or Chief Features, simply that you are in a time frame that will allow you experience the enhanced potential of alleviation from Chief Feature, if you consciously choose that. In fact, you may be highly exposed to your Chief Features, but the energy available will allow you higher consciousness in alleviating their grip. We will suggest a few things that will help, if you choose to experiment. Over the next couple of weeks you can use your body as a tool in this alleviation. You can create any physical cue you find to be a reminder, but we will suggest simple cues for each Axis. These are to be used in any single moment when you “photograph” yourself in the potential throes of Chief Feature. For Sages and Artisans, the physical cue to help you dissolve a moment of Chief Feature, is to gently SMILE. Literally smile and generate internally a humor in the moment, an affection for your “trickster.” Smile, feel it move through your centers, and then proceed. We state here that this is not a solution, it is a tool. When the Sages and Artisans can see their Fears as children simply demanding attention, they can smile, “wink” internally to acknowledge the distraction, and affectionately “scoot” the Chief Feature on. Remember times when you, yourself, were a nuisance, but merely sought acknowledgment. For Warriors and Kings, we suggest a moment to bring your attention to your POSTURE. Kings and Warriors are either too rigid while in the throes of Chief Feature, or they are wearing down and slumping, protecting the Moving Center. In your moment, simply adjust your Posture. Just for a moment, sit up straight, feel yourself return to a place of empowerment, or relax, sigh out a relief and just let your posture go. When Warriors and Kings can see their Fears as servants and protectors that are overworking or without direction, they can easily transform them. Remember times when you became overbearing in your impact on someone, but merely sought to do what you thought was “right”. Priests and Servers can use the physical cue of taking their palms and gently resting their face in them, spreading the palms and pulling the hands back as if to wash the face. Do this gently and with a conscious realization that you were hiding. This symbolic gesture will literally have the potential to remove a layer of energy you carried as a mask of strength. If you are in public, using one hand, caressing one cheek then the other, as if you are wiping away a spider web, can do a great deal in reminding you that you are “human.” If Priests and Servers can see their Fears as Healed Events that have overstayed their welcome, they can encourage a release of them, making a decision that it is not necessary to nurture or uphold these things that were once important. Remember times when you, yourself, had completed a relationship in someone’s life, knowing it was time to “move on”. Many Priest and Servers hang on to fears because they assume their release will make them lose a part of their identity. Your physical cues, Priests/Servers, go a long way in reminding you that you have an updated identity to fulfill. Scholars, your physical cue appears to be linked to two body parts, your arms and your stomach. When in the throes of your Chief Feature, we suggest making an effort to unfold your arms. This will help you feel more like a participant than an “outsider.” We also suggest taking a moment to place one palm on your stomach, one on over your Heart. In that moment, simply remind yourself, “I am alive.” Scholars can alleviate many of their fears by seeing the Fears as navigational tools, not obstacles. Some Scholars can then allow the Fears to be indications as to what they are studying next, or an indication of what they are least interested in studying and let that go. Remember times when you, yourself, have overpowered a person with your “information” without realizing the need for it was unnecessary or out of context. Your fears behave similarly in their “informing” you. All of the physical cues can be handy to any Role, but we believe these shared here are helpful specifically. We encourage you to discern this for yourselves.

    [Excerpt from a session on March 15, 2000, possibly an Energy Report that has since been lost] [Arinna] Are we currently seeing the first effects of global warming and if so, how bad is it expected to be? [Michael_Entity] What has been termed Global Warming will have more benefits than expected. It is a healing that will create vitality for more than is understood now. It will also contribute to the exiting of several million in your species, but this will be more gradual than expected, mostly being a decreasing of births, rather than a mass of deaths. As the population drops, as shifts in patterns of weather continue, as climates shift, as people move and animals and plants die or survive, the adjustment will end in healing. When the body gets a “fever,” it is as beneficial; so this will be. The effects of this appear to be more and more prevalent, yes, and the impact will be seen to be growing over the next 1500 years or so. This summer will have the potential to be quite a shock to many. When you ask “how bad,” we assume you are speaking in terms of interruption of convenience to you as a human. In that case, there will be some very “bad” times, the extremes in weather being the most dangerous and frightening to those extant. The droughts of this year will be the most prevalent as far as we can see. This will impact food and water choices over the next few years drastically in the US and around the world. This, then, is the “bad” of this year, so far, that we see. We remind you that these are projections, not predictions. We do not have the capability to predict in terms that are stable enough to use solidly.

    May 6, 2003 Here is a basic reference for all of the Internal Monads and the symptoms of a completed or incomplete progression. I have the details of each of the Internal Monads, too, but I will have to pull those out another day. -Troy 7 INTERNAL MONADS Each Monad is specifically a marker for the Essence to gauge within the life where it is in terms of what was planned versus what has come to pass. Essence and Personality can sometimes have very different experiences of the lifetime and these markers, or rites of passage, allow the Personality to “upload” all experiences that have come to pass, so Essence can help in the overall creation of the life. At that point new plans can be made, alterations set in place, new people and Agreements and Karma brought in, etc. The Positive Poles are the ability to adapt to the lifetime, whereas the Negative Poles are resistance and basic refusal to adapt to the results of these evaluations. Within a given lifetime there are 7 “rites of passages” that each person passes through as they grow as Personality. A person can pass through these easily or with struggle, depending on where he is with himself in terms of perceptions and experiences. There is no wrong or right way to pass through these Internal Monads, but getting “stuck” in a Monad or passing through in the Negative Pole, can affect the life in many ways and is usually not pleasant to the Personality. Some people defensively “enjoy” where they are when they are “stuck”, and make the best of it. There is no crime in not completing a Monad. In fact, nearly 80% of all fragments DO NOT get through the fourth Monad within one lifetime. To be specific, a “monad” is used here to refer to anything requiring at least two polarities as a means for progression, and is generating experiences completely within it. During your Internal Monads it will feel as if there are at least “two sides” of you, then. One side will be taking a more Positive stance, while the other side gives you the challenges and takes the more Negative stance. This push/pull can create a lot of internal struggle throughout a Monad. The ultimate resolution and completion of a Monad will be in finding the balance within yourself and coming to peace around that particular Monad’s context. SPECIAL NOTE: There is a HUGE misconception in the Michael Community that to pass successfully through an Internal Monad is good, admirable, and better, and somehow lends you more credibility in your expression, while NOT completing or resisting the process of an Internal Monad is undesirable, bad, and the person is dismissed or downplayed as “less than”. That’s just not true. Interaction and communication among some Michael students has gone as far as dismissing those who are only partially through this particular Monad, regardless of how successfully they are progressing. All of us are dealing with varying levels of success in varying parts of our lives, and the 4th Internal Monad is not a defining factor of an individual’s worth. It is rare that a person completes all 7 Internal Monads within one life. Usually only those who are 6th Level to 7th Level within a Soul Age succeed in transiting the 7 Internal Monads within one life. Otherwise, the passages can span several lives. The 7 Internal Monads are the 7 Stages of each Soul Level within the Soul Ages. As a SOUL, we pass through a Soul Age having 7 Levels. On each of those Levels, we may take several lives to pass through that single Level. The 7 Internal Monads are the SUB-levels of each LEVEL within a Soul Age! And, of course, each Internal Monad has its own 7 phases. In order to transit a Soul LEVEL, one must successfully have gone through the 7 Internal Monads during that particular Level, however many lifetimes that takes. In the same way it may take Essence several lives to deal with the experiences during a LEVEL OF SOUL AGE, it can also take a few lifetimes to pass through and process a SINGLE Internal Monad. An Internal Monad is considered “complete” when you have reconciled and resolved the questions of that passage, coming out the other side through the Positive Pole. ALL Internal Monads are entered through the Negative Pole, and are completed if the experience of the Positive Pole can be included. During the process, both Poles will be experienced. If the Internal Monad is incomplete or resting in the Negative Pole, THAT particular Internal Monad will be the bottom-line context for most of your experiences throughout the rest of the life. ALL subsequent Internal Monads are defaulted to the Negative Pole in progression as well, or never even attempted at all. The cool thing is that an incomplete Internal Monad can be completed at ANY point in a life. This means if you are in the middle of your 4th Internal Monad with issues still emanating from the lack of completion of the 2nd Internal Monad, (which, in turn will affect your 3rd Internal Monad), you can address those issues, complete the 2nd and 3rd Internal Monad, thus allowing the successful passage through the present Monad! I am still gathering the details of each Internal Monad and its process. Here is the general path of a lifetime and each Monad. 1. Birth This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Root Chakra, or Instinctive Center (life force). Some people channeling Michael believe that the first and last Internal Monad are always completed because they just happen. This seems logical since you cannot escape death and if you are born, well, you are just born. I disagree. The manner in which you are born, the environment’s impact on the body, any abuses imposed, even smacking the body to bring the baby screaming into the world, can damage the adjustment of the body in relation to the Root Chakra. The Instinctive Center is the ONE Chakra/Center that is carried over from lifetime to lifetime. It is taken from one lifetime like a floppy disk and “inserted” into the next life, carrying deep memories, your Karmic Records, your plans for the life, etc. Imagine getting a brand new computer and inserting a disk with a program on it, then taking that computer and dropping it, or kicking it. Regardless of how incredible that computer is, or what the program is on the disk, this kind of disruption can wreak havoc on the whole system! The goal of progression through the First Internal Monad is to basically ensure the Instinctive Center is stably intact, in harmony with the body, or Essence will not be able to “move in” when it is ready. A soul rarely moves into a body right away, but rather cares for and guides the development of the body, gradually moving in over the first 7 years. Since being born happens many times and in many ways, the Essence and Body/Personality really do get very good at this and become extremely adaptable. This is why it appears logical to some that Birth and Death are always completed. Because the physical aspects of this event are an unavoidable part of being Human, the event is quite familiar to an Older Soul. Early in the cycle of lifetimes, this Monad can be extremely challenging. As an adult, tell-tale signs of an incomplete FIRST Internal Monad are mental instability and the inability to function in society in any meaningful way, having to depend on an institution or caretaker for your most basic needs, separating you from the “real world”, such as being hospitalized for your mental health conditions. As a child, the incomplete First Monad will show most during when the Second Monad is to be played out, turning into tyrannical tantrums and screaming, brutality and refusal. As an adult, a completed First Monad is indicated by being alive and well, healthy in most respects and able to be a part of life in general. As a child, the completed First Monad will show up most obviously during the Second Monad’s playing out, with the child beginning to ask all of the “Why’s” of every iota of experience, sheer curiosity and want for knowing. 2. Autonomy (age 3 or so) This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Higher Moving Center, or Sexual Chakra. As an adult, Tell-tale signs of an incomplete SECOND Internal Monad are Intimacy issues, lack of social skills, bowel problems, preoccupation with remaining under parental care, or a strong need for approval far into your adulthood. As a child, the incomplete Second Internal Monad will show up as soon as Adolescence, with violence, complete rebellion against all things, sexual promiscuity (defined here as having sex to just have it, usually for attention or acceptance, without meaning, curiosity, or relevance on any level), rape, dropping out from all forms of organization. As an adult, a completed Second Monad is usually seen by being able to have sexual intimacy, affection, and a healthy seeking or allowance of that. Parents are seen as people, not resources or reasons for who you are. As a child, the completed Second Monad will show most during the Third Monad (adolescence) as a healthy and completed separation from parental or guardian care, even if only psychologically, and the beginnings of seeking “true love”, dating, consensual sex. 3. Adolescence (age 12 – 20 or so) This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Moving Center, or Power Chakra. Tell-tale signs of an incomplete THIRD Internal Monad show strongly through the Fourth Monad (and beyond, if not addressed) as “authority issues”, rage, constant involvement in confrontation, a preoccupation with “getting attention” and/or acceptance despite destructive behavior, and finding it very important to rally others alongside them for support against something. A completion of the Third Monad usually finds the adult being able to side-step confrontation, usually doesn’t even attract it, is peaceful about differences, recognizes “authority” for what it is and leaves it to its context and allowing those who wish to play that game to do so, rather than being preoccupied with fighting it. 4. Stabilization (age 30 – 50 or so) This is the adjustment of the body and personality in relation to the Emotional Center, or Heart Chakra. Tell-tale signs of an incomplete FOURTH Internal Monad are depression, feeling a lack of “purpose”, feeling lost, “giving up”, anxiety, great fear and/or severe illnesses, apathy. The incompletion begins to show evidence quite currently in that Monad, but even more amplified during the Fifth Internal Monad where the person then displays pure resignation, constant-voiced resentments and preoccupations with the aches and pains of life. Signs of a completed Fourth Monad are seen in the regaining of a sense of innocence, awe, inspiration and purpose, motivation for personal expression and living as one feels compelled, making life personally meaningful. This completion shows strongly when the Fifth Internal Monad begins and there is a sense of want for travel, exploration, an adventurous new move, beginning fun projects and being in groups of like-minded activities. 5. Recreation (age 45 – 65 or so) This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Intellectual Center, or Communication Chakra. Tell-tale signs of an incomplete FIFTH Internal Monad are seen near the beginning of the 6th Monad as early senility, sporadic memory loss, Alzheimer’s, the stereotypical eccentric elderly, a complete regression to emotional memories of the experiences most programmed into the body. Signs of a completed Fifth Monad show during the 6th Monad when there are stories to tell, teachings and anecdotes to pass on, memories to share, a general conclusion and peace settling over the life. If memory does begin to fail, “senility” is replaced with wild, philosophical explorations throughout the emotional memories of the lifetime, along with valid psychic journeys through folding time and space. 6. Reviewing (age 60 to 80 or so) This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Higher Emotional Center, or Brow Chakra. An incomplete 6th Internal Monad shows up as great regret, searches for desperate reconciliation and forgiveness, death-bed wishes and confessions, having never known or accepted love or support and realizing this profoundly, fearing dying. A completed 6th Internal Monad is experienced as peaceful within and without, at ease with the inevitability death, knows love has been experienced and recognizes this profoundly. 7. Death This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Higher Intellectual Center, or the Spiritual Chakra. An incomplete SEVENTH Monad can show up as a literal “haunting”, family members and friends grieving deeply and uncontrollably for great, great lengths of time “holding on” to the fragment, and an immediate or overlapping rebirth in a new body. A completed Monad finds “you” moving on, regardless of your method of death, reviewing the life with/as Essence, comforting and “visiting” those who are still physical for a time, if needed, family and friends experiencing “you” as being safe and at peace, letting you go, and being able to plan the next life with insight from all lives having been experienced.

    [Excerpt from: Ask Michael: March 2017] TyroneT: ... Can I get a description of Priest casting in the same format as you've given so far for Server, Artisan, Warrior and King Casting? MEntity: Priest Casting might show up in its default form as a kind of eagerness, willingness, and interest in the bettering of a person or situation. This Casting tends to find a way to be "in the middle" of people and events, drawn to "drama," to the point of being accused of "meddling." This Casting presumes that others naturally wish to evolve, to be better, and they are willing to help. This can get messy and is quite tricky. Because of this, Priest Casting can sometimes learn a kind of emotional sleight of hand and this can either give the reputation of being healers and helpers, or a manipulative nuisance.

    [Extracted from Michael Speaks: Open Q&A] How best can we deal with others, when we find ourselves to be in opposition with their lifestyles and belief systems, to the point of some having physical and emotional pain over it? And, is ignoring their choices, to let them be who they are, somehow reflect that we are encouraging those choices by attending something that they are attached to? (We have been discussing certain celebrities, and the choices they make involving fundamental religions and cults.) MEntity: How one deals with one who is determined as being in opposition to one’s personal lifestyle and belief systems is a matter of choice and part of the experience of being Sentient. Soul Age plays a great part in how one deals with those who represent opposition to one's personal lifestyle and beliefs. ... Old Souls within your world at this time are still manifesting a great deal of the self through Mature Soul contexts, so you will find many Old Souls still working through Mature Soul stances, not only because many Old Souls are manifesting at the Mature Soul Age, but also because this helps the process of the Mature Soul world to take root permanently. Part of the point of being an Old Soul is in use of the ability to manifest from any previous Soul Age as a means to relate to all aspects of the world. The dominant energy in the world for most at this time is the Mature Soul context, so many Old Souls will find themselves still very passionate about issues in which they would otherwise find neutrality (not indifference, but neutrality). So in speaking about Old Souls, it makes sense to speak of them in terms of the Mature Soul at this time, which means that most will be contributing to any movement that is linked to the benefit of all. As long as the world is moving in the direction of Maturity, the active stance one takes on issues that inhibit compassion and freedom for all is quite important in terms of rooting Maturity in the world. No one is obligated to take a stance or to contribute to this rooting of Maturity, of course, but the contribution to this Maturity does accelerate for all, the more actively the species invests in those beliefs and lifestyles that benefit all. This stance is not a confusing issue for the Mature Soul, but for the Old Soul, it can be confusing as he or she stands in support of the lifestyles and beliefs that support the benefit of all, but still feels a sense of higher perspective that trusts that all lifestyles and beliefs are valid, even if destructive, and will eventually be of benefit to all, anyway. The Mature Soul still knows how important it is to invest in the betterment of life on the Physical Plane, while many Old Souls can often forget the importance of that, since they are “leaving soon,” anyway.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (2 of 3)] [Arinna] When I am channeling my higher self (essence) how can I get my personality's consciousness out of the way as much as possible? Also, when I feel that shift in energy within myself — is that my essence causing that? [Michael_Entity] In answer to your first question: you will never be able to “get your personality's consciousness out of the way”. Your consciousness IS your Essence connection. The key is in learning to trust your Personality and work with its thoughts, feelings, and motion. When settling in to “channel” your Essence, you are merely deciding to gather a larger perception. When connected to Essence consciously, it is not necessarily a revelation or a significant shift or breakthrough. The state is so natural some dismiss what has occurred. There will be a shift in energy, and this will be as significant as you require as a mark for your connection. This is your body/Personality's design, not Essence's. The “shift” you speak of is a harmonious, clear mark for you and it works. Many choose this method. There is as much Essence involved in a fist fight as there is in a charismatic guru, when consciousness and choice are aligned. When sitting next in your session to connect more consciously to Essence, simply want to, and it will be. Within that moment, all any of you have to do to remain connected consciously, is to choose consciously. We will define “consciously” here as “with awareness”, but there are other ways to define. When every decision you make as Personality is done with consciousness, Essence is present. When you find yourself happy, Essence is present. Whether you are indulging in eating a bucket of ice cream, doing horrific acts of violence, or singly sweetly with a friend… if chosen consciously and with intent, Essence is present. The mark for rejection of Essence, or blocking of Essence can be seen in any sense of contraction in your life, or area of your life. We realize we have moved into a tangent, but we feel it is relevant. Essence can be present, for instance, in your art or creativity alone, but is rejected or blocked in a relationship to a spouse. Essence “backs off” from areas of your life where the Personality has chosen to do things its own way. We will ask here, before continuing with questions, if we have answered Arinna’s question to a degree acceptable.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2004] [BradburySE] On “60 Minutes” a couple weeks ago, I saw a story about a 12-year old composing genius. His name is Jay Greenburg, I think, he's been composing classical music since he was two. This says to me that someone who was not finished being a composer when he/she died came back as this boy and got right to work! Who was this boy before he was Jay Greenburg, and was he a known musical composer? [Michael_Entity] Many fragments who are deemed “child prodigies” are, indeed, completing a Cluster of lives focused on some creative theme, though this is not always the case. The fragment now known as Jay Greenberg is the current Personality of an Essence who is one of many Essences whose compositions were credited to other composers across history. The fragment in question helped create (or specifically created) compositions with or for the fragment who has come to be known as “Mozart.” This was not uncommon. This still remains a common method of publicizing creations, particularly in the field of music. As part of the theme of that fragment's Cluster of lifetimes, we see that he is now focused on immediate recognition for his work, rather than humbly developing the submissive devotion to his art. [BradburySE] And being a “child” prodigy brings so much attention that would not be given to an adult, that his work could not possibly be credited to anyone but himself. [Michael_Entity] Precisely.

    [Excerpted from NWM - Jan 15, 2015 - Seven Facets of Role] MEntity: Today, we are asked to discuss what might best be described as the "facets" of a Role. These would be the same, regardless of Soul Age, and do not represent a progression into the conscious use of the Role. The evolution of the use of a Role is relative to Soul Ages and Levels, so for instance, and Old Sage is very different from a Young Sage. But, today, we will discuss WHAT KIND of Sage, not necessarily how evolved the Sage. We see there is speculation as to correlation with Casting as a means for defining these variations on a Role, and that is in part true, but only in part. These Facets "rotate" for each Role, and while Casting tends to describe a default, a Role can have locked into any one of the Facets. ... To "save time" in our delivery today, we will only share the Negative Poles, since the basic description has its Positive Poles implied. ... THE 7 FACETS OF KING THE SERVER-KING is THE BELOVED. This is the most nurturing, loyal, and sincere of the Kings in terms of how they go forward into Mastery. Their tactics tend to grant them great respect and admiration and love from all who know of them or who are affected by them in any way. This can be subtle or obvious, but it is something they come to realize sooner or later as they wake up in the life. When The Beloved falls into the Negative Poles, it never occurs to them that they could possibly be so loved, that they could possibly make much difference, and everything simply seems obligatory and routine. In short, they miss out on themselves. THE ARTISAN-KING is THE CREATOR. This is the King who is slow, deliberate, and is greatly concerned with the greater arc of the life and an ultimate creation or fulfillment. When The Creator falls into the Negative Poles, he forgets that he is creator. He falls into a kind of amnesia that feels as if the life is a constant struggle to wake up into, and even then, there is a struggle to feel as if one has a right to participate. The WARRIOR-KING is THE CUSTODIAN. This is the King who feels responsible for "everything," and will work hard to maneuver the life and the lives of others in ways that help all parts to work together for the betterment of everything. When The Custodian falls into the Negative Poles, he will tend to check out, to resign, to to become embittered and distanced from all forms of responsibility. THE SCHOLAR-KING is THE ADVOCATE. This King takes on causes and stands as representative of those causes, being a resource for information, structure, and direction for fulfilling the direction of the cause. When The Advocate is in the Negative Poles, he falls into stridency, warring, and combativeness that often tends to defeat the very point of the fight. THE SAGE-KING is THE WISE ONE. This is the King who is all about being a source of information, sharing observations, and exemplifying adaptability. When The Wise One falls into the Negative Poles, he is a fountain of inappropriate information and observations that have no bearing on the current contexts. THE PRIEST-KING is THE PRECEDENCE. This is the King willing to do what others would not do so as to set precedence, pave a way, and open of paths for others. When The Precedence falls into the Negative Poles, he becomes repetitive, breaking into directions for the sake of impressing or making a point, but not with any concern for those who might follow behind. The KING-KING is THE CORNERSTONE. This is the most immovable, predictable, and "safe" King. He has established his position in the life and will not move from that. This can be quite comforting and bring great stability to a "kingdom" and a lifetime that comes after great arcs of strife and struggles. When The Cornerstone falls into the Negative Poles, he becomes "dead weight" or a "black hole." This is the King who has determined that his direction or stance is not up for examination or change, and this means he can hold steady even on a crash course, taking everyone and everything down with him.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2008] [H2OSprtlvr] I am drawn to an individual that I have done business with. While in his shop, he opened up and told me about a whole host of problems he is dealing with. He seems to be nothing but trouble. Why do I feel attached to helping him to see another way of things? I don’t understand why I am drawn to someone with problems I know I can’t help with. [Michael Entity] It is part of some of your self-karma: the dance between speculation and truth, and the dance between saving a life and simply giving what you can. It would do you well to allow the speculation that you may not be able to help save this person, but it would also do you well to keep in perspective what you CAN give as help, without condition, as the ultimate impact will be up to the receiver, not the giver. In other words, give the support and caring that you can, but allow for the reality that you cannot save his life for him.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Racism] [sam-nemo] What is the origin of races? How did they begin? I read a story in the Urantia book. [M_Entity] The origins of races is a grand topic, but we can say that we agree that the species eventually used by what is our Sentience began approximately 8 million years ago in what is now known as East Africa. [sam-nemo] To shorten the topic, did they pop up at one time or were they affected by genetic manipulation or alien experiments? [M_Entity] The varying Races had their development in part due to nomadic movement across lands, but more due to the genetic splicing effects when our Sentience moved to this planet. To respond to your question “in short,” we believe the “genetic manipulation” had more to do with varying Races than anything. Approximately 6 million years ago, the most dramatic divisions began. This was based on the genetic splicing and the care that the “aliens” had in creating the most effective and practical genetic bodies for the varying locations seeded.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: June 2008] [Question] Since we acquire new bodies each lifetime, why do we still carry “memories” of injuries from past lives into new lifetimes? How does this work? For ex. my back pain has been channeled as being from an injury from a past life that I am working out. [Michael Entity] One only carries “memories” of injuries into a current life when those injuries or memories are relevant to the current life. They are never random, and never literal. For instance, your back pain is a manifestation of similar patterns being explored within this lifetime that are resonant to other lifetimes of similar exploration. It is not that the injury was literally carried over, but that you are doing similar things in a similar way that then resonate to that other lifetime. That resonance can help in healing the current injury only insofar as insights can be gained from experiences integrated by your Essence from that lifetime. The resonance to the other lifetime is not to give justification or distraction from your current ailments, but to allow a means of direct access to the wisdom stored by Essence from that lifetime. If one can imagine one lifetime as one point on a line, while another lifetime is another point at a distance on that line, and then imagine a line being drawn from one lifetime to another, that line CANNOT be “drawn” without first creating an arc through Essence, which is “above the line.” Often Personality can relate to other Personalities before it can relate to Essence, so it “remembers” (or receives through a channel) the reference to another lifetime of similarity, but this is merely a method for indirectly accessing Essence. Keeping that in mind can help the point of that remembering and resonance. However, to be more specific in response to your question, it is not the injury that carries over, nor the memory, but the PATTERNS that are stored in your Instinctive Center, which is pulled from one lifetime and then “inserted” into another lifetime. This is not a literal event, but the image is helpful. It can also hep to think of it as a program, or a collection of programs/software that is now available to the new personality. Depending on the choices of the current personality, certain programs/software/patterns will emerge for use, and many will not. In your case, Questioner, you have called upon a theme of self-esteem issues, and these issues are often ignored or overridden on the emotional or intellectual levels to a degree that physical manifestation helps in tending to that theme of issues. You will then find resonance to lifetimes where a similar physical injury or ailment was being explored for similar reasons. [Question] Could Michael suggest some energy-work on such an issue? [Michael Entity] The “energy work” for any given ailment would have to be relative to the ailment and the individual, but we can say that any chronic aching that is related to self-esteem issues would require “energy work” on the Emotional Body as a focal point, while emphasis of RELIEF on the Physical Body will help in allowing that focus. This energy work on the Emotional Body might be anything from cathartic expression to gestalt therapies to flotation therapies to singing therapies to permission therapies that allow for more of what one craves, etc. We wish to point out here that the patterns carried over from one lifetime to another are only brought into reality by the choices of the current personality. For instance, there have have been lifetimes for the Questioner that have been lived between the past life back injury and the back injury of this lifetime. Back pain was not an issue in those lifetimes between. A more poetic way to understand this might be that the songs heard from other lifetimes depends on the melodies played by this one.

    This material was obtained in a private session on November 24, 2014. Geraldine_B: I've become really aware of some very long time spans between Essence's incarnations, as in a million years or more at times. What do Essences “do” during these long pauses. How or what are they experiencing or learning? MEntity: Essences who spend great lengths of time between incarnations do a multitude of things that are too numerous to describe. It would be like trying to describe a detailed response to "what do people do who are alive?" We can describe both living and in-between lives as having an emphasis on experiences, learning, and choices, and while that is accurate because it can describe the larger context of all lives extant and non-extant, it does not give you a clear idea of the more mundane activities within those larger contexts. But here are some examples: Some act as guides and gain experience by their direct relationship through a fragment who is extant. If you are one of the Primary Guides, that time spent as guide "counts" as a lifetime. You gain the same experiences of the lifetime as the fragment extant, but from a very different angle. Having the experience of being extant, but from such a different angle, helps one to create one's own Personalities with greater insight and planning. This is why some fragments "remember" being a famous historic figure because he or she may have been a part of the network of guides for that fragment. The more influential and "positive" a fragment is in history, the greater the network of guides. The more influential and "negative" the fragment, there are fewer guides, if any. Other activities that span those lengths of time are "lifetimes" on the Astral. These are practice lifetimes, if you will. Groups of fragments will gather and run a simulation of ideas for lifetimes, playing out as many variations as possible. Other activities are that the Essence can pull from the library of lifetimes already processed by any fragment and "live" that lifetime out on the Astral. Not everyone will be a Hitler, for instance, but in much the same way that not everyone will be a murderer, but still enjoy a violent and scary movie with murder as the plot, so will fragments be curious about those extreme lifetimes like that of Hitler. This is pulled and an Essence can play through it like a virtual reality game, trying to gain some insight or understanding from the most extreme of perceptions like this. The same is true of even a fragment who hosts the Infinite Soul. That lifetime is available for playthrough.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2004] [BingeBuddie] I know this may seem like a very basic question, but I have had a hard time validating my role in essence. With so many factors to consider such as casting, ET influence, overleaves, and entity position, etc. is there any definitive way to determine your role? I’ve went with channels in the past, but that causes confusion because its difficult to tell what one input is as opposed to many inputs, such as Scholar having one and Artisan having 5. One channel Roles (Scholar, King, and Warrior) can concentrate in the midst of chaos right? So that's kind of what I try to look at. Is that a good indicator? [M Entity] No, we would not suggest using your ability to concentrate as your determining factor. The symptom of concentration vs. distraction in terms of Input is another of the simplifications that can happen when first learning about a part of the teaching. While it is true that an Essence with a single input can usually focus more intently in the midst of chaos, the influence of Personality, Imprinting, and Situations can greatly affect that level of concentration. What we would suggest as part of your validation of your Role in Essence is this: First, study the Roles. It is important to truly comprehend each Role. This means moving beyond the stereotypes that are a part of the initial stage of learning. Next, it is important to understand the vital differences between Essence and Casting. Casting affects how you behave “naturally”, how you express yourself to the world on a DAILY BASIS. Your Essence Role is most obviously comprehended in moments where you feel you SHINE. For instance: A Scholar-Cast Sage: In the daily life of this individual he may appear unkempt, distracted, refined, studious, directed, serious, and maybe even a bit out of synch socially, but this fragment would “shine” as soon as he was able to publicly share what he has gained as experiences in a way that was entertaining to at least a small group. A Sage-Cast Scholar, on the other hand, may be dramatic, socially obnoxious, emotional, depressed, extreme, performing, and chaotic in his daily life, but this fragment would “shine” when he is able to wholly comprehend something that can be finalized as a bit of profound personal knowledge. We do not know of a more appropriate word than “shine”. When you are in Essence, you feel complete, “on”, and you usually feel cohesion between your mundane self and your higher self. When we say “shine”, we do not intend to mean that everyone will see this, but rather that the Personality and Essence open to each other and a sense of lightness and wholeness pervade. We explain all of this to you in the context of an Essence having a different Role than Casting, but of course, there ARE Sage-Cast Sages and Scholar-Cast Scholars, but those fragments usually have little confusion as to their Role. Having explained those basic differences between Casting and Role in Essence, you can then figure out your Role or Casting by first determining if you feel you are more exalted or more ordinal in either of those contexts. In other words, in your DAILY LIFE, are you more one-on-one, but when you “shine”, are you surrounded by people? One-on-One might indicate a more Ordinal position, while being inclined toward groups can be an indication of an Exalted position. Once you have determined how you may behave in either context, you can then determine if you feel you are more compelled to have an inspiring, expressive, or active effect on your environment. This will then give you an indication as to the final role description you might be in your Casting or your Essence. For example, you may notice you are naturally more one-on-one in your daily life, thus indicating that you may be Ordinal-Cast, but when you “shine”, you notice you love to be in a group of people in some way, indicating you may be an Exalted Essence Role. Then you would determine if you are more inclined to be expressive, inspiring, or active in your daily life. If you find you are more concerned with inspiring, you could then safely start trying out the idea that you may be SERVER-CAST. When you “shine”, you may find you are more inclined to be expressive, entertaining, and teaching-oriented, which may indicate a SAGE ESSENCE. This would then be a Server-Cast Sage. We realize this can still be very confusing and difficult to determine, but it is a start. Because the Scholar Role is neutral, it can be the most difficult to determine and we would not be able to convey in this format the depth of questioning that would need to be explored for true validation of the Essence or Casting. One of the most important things you can do while studying our teaching and seeking to validate your Role, Casting, Overleaves, Entity, and Essence Twins, etc. is be open to an evolution of your understanding. You may discover that what you believed was inaccurate channeling is actually profoundly accurate to who you realize you are becoming (as you come into your own identity). Or you may discover that your self-determined Overleaves were highly inaccurate in your initial understanding and you now see that you are someone completely different after all. Never feel as if you must conclude who you are. Our system is designed to help you understand who you are, not complicate your self-perception. If you are thoroughly confused, pick a Role, pick your Overleaves, and begin “living with them”. You will begin to see what does and does not hold validity. [BingeBuddie] But would you have to be past the 4th internal monad to judge completely accurately as to what role you are? (not to ask ANOTHER lengthy question) [M Entity] It does help to have completed the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole for true self-awareness in terms of Essence, Casting, and True Personality. But then, that is the very crux of having a completion of the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole, so it is not a matter of waiting for that rite to pass before seeking valid self-awareness.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 2009] [sandy] I recently read some information about a previously unmentioned TS. Could Michael elaborate on what a TS is and how they manifest? Also if they don’t mind could Michael tell us again who the TS’s have been? [Michael Entity] A Transcendental Soul is our way of describing an incarnation of one fragment representing the collective knowledge of its entire cycled-off Entity. They “manifest” in the same way that any other fragment incarnates, with a birth , internal monads, life, etc. However, they are free from any Karmic Ribbons, though not free from Self-Karmic explorations, since Personality and imprinting is still involved. We have described through our channels about the “manifestation” of the Transcendental Soul, and by this we describe the individual’s realization of that direct connection to his or her Entity on some significant level. However, this “manifestation” is not much different from any of you realizing your own Essence and “manifesting” this. It is not a magical or specifically elaborate ordeal, but it does change the nature of the life to a great degree. [Geraldine] You’ve also stated that every Entity uses a TS as a teaching method — and there have been many cycled-off Entities — why so few TS that are known? [Gerber] Is Barack Obama a TS? [Michael Entity] Barack Obama is not a Transcendental Soul. He is an extraordinary fragment to many, but no more extraordinary than any of you. The context of his life may showcase his Essence in a way that many of you will not be showcased, but that does not diminish the extraordinary in the ordinary of any of you. [DianeH] So that mean the TS does not displace a fragment like the IS? [Michael Entity] Manifestation of the Transcendental Soul could be described as “displacing the fragment,” and we have described it as such through some channels, but this simply describes the fragment shifting from that individual focus to the collective focus, representing a whole, and not just a part. [Gerber] Thank you Michael- I asked that question because Mr. Obama seems unusually aware of the collective needs of his societies ( both immediate and seemingly universal). [Michael Entity] Gerber, this is the nature of a Priest in the positive poles. Oprah Winfrey would be another example of a Priest in the positive poles. The hallmarks of Transcendental Souls are the lack of sexual activity, lack of affiliation with any organized religion, and an emphasis on some form of social revolution, even if only in a relatively small circle. They actually do very little to bring about the revolution but their presence is enough to spark it. The Priest who is Barack Obama holds none of these hallmark traits. [Gerber] Then they must be rare indeed. [sandy] Does this mean that you, Michael, could be born one more time? [Michael Entity] Sandy, yes, we will incarnate as a Transcendental Soul in at least one parallel. All Entities do so. [sandy] So in our parallel the TS’s in recorded history are? [Michael Entity] Gandhi is a clear and relatively recent example of a Transcendental Soul. Socrates, Confucius, Mohammed, and Zarathustra are other examples of Transcendental Souls. These are the only ones we know of in recorded history that may be known to you, as well. Contributing to the list of Transcendental Souls among our channels and students are those souls who have contributed in ways similar to a Transcendental Soul, but are not Transcendental Souls. It may not come as a surprise to some of you that so many cannot accept the extraordinary from the ordinary. In fact, many fragments are capable of what the Transcendental Soul effects. In addition to the names we listed above, many Transcendental Souls have come and gone without notice on global scales, but are tremendously effective in villages, communities, family lines, societies, etc. The impact can be a cumulative, slow, long-term effect fulfilled by many with little recognition brought to the originator of that social revolution.

    [Note: This is an edited version about the 7 Levels of Life Task excerpted from a student’s posted blog on the TLE website. The information was channeled in July ’09 by Troy Tolley. The edits were only to remove personal evaluations.] [Note: The 4th IM channeling dates from before. GLB] [Question] what is Michael's definition of real purpose / real task / real mission – is this something that is contractual between our essence and our fragment, and essence will come in to communicate it to us… it seems that this “real work” occurs for fragments between the 4th I.M. and 5th I.M. Does it have 7 levels of operation ??? And, if so, what are they??? Maybe some people do it before the 4th and, starting of the 4th – and, do it throughout their lives starting of the 5th – and, do it throughout their lives [Michael Entity] We would think our phrase of “Life Task” may be of relevance here, and we would define that as “the original motivation for the physical form and for the dynamics of the Personality.” There are no contracts in this case, but there are intentions and agreements that are helped along by Essence until the Personality is no longer interested. The Life Task is what Essence intended to experience in the lifetime through this particular Personality. What Essence intends NEVER overrides what Personality decides. Essence has no urgency for these intentions because it is fully aware of the fact that it can create another lifetime and body for trying again. In addition to the option for creating new lifetimes for the intent of a task, there are also parallel branches within a single lifetime where, more often than not, at least one version of “you” does co-create the life with Essence and fulfill the task. Essence will never impose its vision upon the Personality beyond the original motivation and design. Most Personalities can determine their Life Task quite easily because it is more often than not something they already do. The Life Task is a primary consideration in the design of Personality, so whether one experiences the fulfillment of that task, or merely develops fruitless habits and patterns, the clues would still be there. If one is not already doing something related to the Life Task, then clues are usually found in what one WISHES one were doing. It is valid that the 4th Internal Monad is usually the stage within the life when a fragment truly questions the alignment of self with soul, or life with essence, or path with presence, depending on the spirituality of the individual. There are 7 stages to the process of fulfilling the Life Task and they correspond to the 7 stages within the 4th Internal Monad. Stage 1: INITIATION +enthusiasm -indifference This stage is hardly noticeable since you have only just placed your consciousness into the new context. This stage relates to the Instinctive Center, therefore “kicking in” the Monad without the individual being particularly conscious of this. Indications of the initial stage are usually marked by enthusiasm and anticipation. A simple delight in your potential future or accomplishments. Since this is simply a technical reference, and not really measurable enough to recognize, we suggest using the signs of the Second Stage as a starting point, possibly “working back” to a point where you might have seen the initial stages begin to manifest. Most will find there was a point when there was either a sudden enthusiasm that “something” was different, or a definitive point wherein the fragment feels further removed from its own life. This Stage, then, evaluates your sense of Trust. Stage 2: INTROSPECTION +awareness -brooding This stage is heavily marked by dread, anxiety, and intense Introspection. Depending on your resistance and your Overleaves, you may experience anything from a realization of your personal worth and a positive realization of your life's impact, or virtual self-implosion and self-degradation. Different cultures will respond to this Stage depending on parental upbringing and definitions of Authority. This is an introspective stage in the context of a Monad to evaluate accomplishments and plans, so there may be a processing of a Scary Parent or issues with Authority you have carried around being belittled for your “mistakes”, decisions and choices and expression. In that processing, you may experience a new sense of connection to “something” more like a Supportive Parent or Authority from within to gently nudge and concur with you through the life. This Stage evaluates your perceptions of Authority and your reaction to your sense of self-importance and self-value. Stage 2 brings up energy from the Emotional Center. Stage 3: REALIZATION +freedom -separation This Intellectually-centered Stage begins to release the ideas of the past as a source for the future. New ideas and identities will emerge here. Most realizations will be reserved for inner exploration, but, nonetheless, a change has taken place in how the individual views its expression as a part of a larger picture. On the more expansive side, one knows what must begin to be done, and starts to anticipate a general plan, not always with clarity, but with a certainty that “something must be done.” On the more constricting side, one begins to pull back from the future and “hide within,” or away from external reflections. This stage evaluates your perception of Responsibility. This Stage usually lasts the longest, especially in the Fourth Internal Monad, as you probe your beliefs. Stage 4: MANIFESTATION +purpose -otiose This Stage brings energy out through the Moving Center as you begin now to express to yourself, and others, more confidently what/who you are. In the context of the Fourth Monad, it is where you begin doing or, at least, pursuing/discovering what you are pulled to do as a reflection of your “contribution” and original Tasks. Successful movement through this is seen as a comfortable expression of your daily activities and endeavors. Resisting this Stage and remaining here would result in sluggishness, ineffective portrayals of self, and sometimes rage/anger in place of empowerment. This stage explores your concepts of Purpose. Stage 5: CONTENTMENT +satisfaction -contention Finally you begin to feel/see some satisfaction from your progress through the Internal Monad. In the context of the Fourth Internal Monad, whether you have completed or accomplished a Task becomes irrelevant against the contentment of what you choose to do. In this Stage, you realize the amount of density you have been containing and you begin to “lighten up” about your movement. In the positive pole you will see personal happiness now becoming a factor in your decisions, and in this Fourth Monad, you've released treasured securities found in the oppressive/elusive “big plan or PURPOSE,” and find this more appropriate guide. Otherwise, the negative pole finds an individual always at odds with their environment, always in a state of contention and debate about their worth/purpose. This stage evaluates your perceptions of Love. The Higher Emotional Center is highlighted here. 6: MAGNETIZATION +attraction -repulsion In this Stage, you now begin to draw in your agreements, Karma, and Support for new perspectives, or reconnect/stabilize existing ones. The positive pole maintains clear communication, acknowledgment of Traveling Companions, and a more accurate view of the future. You now see with clarity the long-term impact of your efforts alongside the current “demands.” Those who find themselves in a state of rejection, isolation, and depression have chosen to experience the negative pole. A sense of deep longing begins to unfold in the negative pole of Stage 6, since so much has been deemed “unacceptable.” This stage opens you to your perceptions of Truth. Stage 7: EMANATION +alignment -incongruity In this stage you find the peace of routine that becomes you. A sense of wholeness returns and “getting back” to your life. In the positive pole, alignment occurs with Essence; in the negative pole, life becomes incongruous and sporadic in nature, with no bearing. Regardless of the pole, you will emanate your sense of self at that point with no resistance. This stage engages your Higher Moving Center, and examines Beauty, or Energy. It is important here to note that a completion of the Monad does not necessarily mean a “positive” completion. In most cases where the negative pole becomes emphasized, completion is not reached due to the internal degradation and combustion that occurs along the way. Many do complete the Monad, however, within parameters acceptable to them that would technically be regarded as the negative pole. This is the choice of the individual and has no bearing on their being a “good” or “bad” person; we do not say this, nor do we imply this. We merely state the differentiation between what is expansive and self aware, and what is not. The negative completion is not expansive or self-aware, relatively speaking.

    [Excerpt from a session for Geraldine, late 2011. This excerpt references OMW: Validating your Profile.] [GeraldineB] During the Validating Overleaves OMW session, we received information for several of the Casting Axes and how Casting influences the various overleaves -- We've received Server, Sage, Scholar, and Warrior (two of those as follow ups). I'd like to get similar information for Artisan Casting at this time. MEntity: For the Artisan Casting, regardless of Overleaves, there can be a tendency to approach the Goal through processes that require one's capacity to say NO, to Discriminate. The Artisan is often challenged by this process of saying and meaning YES, and actually saying NO when necessary. The Mode, or relationships, are often affected by Caution, in that these are formed quite Deliberately and carefully, or they can sometimes suffer from paralysis as Phobia comes into play. The Attitude, or one's philosophy when Artisan-cast, can be distancing and divisive as there is always a Skeptical eye affecting that fragment, regardless of Attitude, and can show up as either questioning just enough to learn, or so much so that no answers are ever accepted, leading only into Suspicion.

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael: April 2014] [Kurtis] Hi Michael, I just love this description of the Server Casting that I found you wrote: Server Casting might show up as a default, keen awareness of the needs, feelings, and behavior of those around you, sometimes to the extent of distraction. It might show up as a sensitivity and kindness that wishes only the best for others, while being rather frustrated, or even infuriated, with those who are inconsiderate and disrespectful of boundaries. It might show up as being in a position among friends and family that is more often than not turned to for insight, help, nurturing, availability, and understanding. This was your answer to one of Al's questions a while back, and many have said these hold true who are Server Castings, so I was wondering if you could write the same format above, but for the Warrior Cast. [MEntity] Warrior Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of sincerity and authenticity in various experiences or people in the life. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who generate meaningful challenges to the Personality so that there is no sense of complacency or apathy. This attraction to those who might bring this honesty, authenticity, and challenge can mean that many fall short of the expectations of this fragment, and there may easily come a system of navigation that comes to be based on presumptions and prejudices. This, then, becomes a wall through which those who seek intimacy will have to "prove" themselves to the Warrior-Cast, even if that Warrior-Cast does not realize this is in place. This can bring about a rather dismissive stance from the Warrior-Cast that would, eventually, have to be addressed by that Warrior-Cast if the desire for authenticity and honesty outweighs the actual experience of it.

    [Extracted from Michael Speaks: Modes] [MEntity] ... RESERVE MODE If one has Reserve Mode, this would most likely show up as one who must have the whole picture, the history, the point, and see that there is Meaning to the pursuit of the Goal. When it is seen that there is Meaning, then the support for the Goal tends to be incremental and specific, accumulating a pattern of Meaning. When Meaning cannot be anticipated or seen as possible, then the Goal tends to fall into the negative pole, and internal struggles begin. ... It could also be said that if Reserve Mode sees others in itself, it can experience Meaning; if Passion can see itself in others, it can create Meaning.

    [Extracted from: NYC Michael Speaks: Wants & Needs of Essence Roles] MEntity: We understand that Troy has asked for us to discuss what we might describe as the WANT and the NEED of each Essence Role, so we’ve looked at this in a way that we hope will be easy to validate for each of you and your Roles. ... we will move on to the final role of SCHOLAR: What Scholars are motivated by on a conscious level in terms of WANTS for the lifetime we might describe as PROJECTS. Scholars want projects. They want to be working on something. They want to be studying something. They want to be calculating something. They want to be crafting something. It depends often on their casting in this case as to what that project would be. It could be helping someone. Or it could be any number of things, but they want projects. This is what motivates them often. Underlying everything else is that sense of creating or participating in or contributing to a project. Now again, in terms of the Scholar, this definition of what project will mean may vary. But we would think that, if one is truly a Scholar, it would be difficult to find a Scholar who has not in some way thought of “what is my next project?” or “who is my next project?” or “how is my next project?” Their NEED, however … again we have two words that might work here … but their NEEDS, what they are subconsciously motivated by and will find ways to fulfill it would be REST or SURRENDER. Scholars need more True Rest than most other roles, or often need to recognize the value of surrender more than other roles. Now, surrender is a word that often gets confused with resignation, and we will clarify here that surrender is the conscious acknowledgement of forces that are not particularly in your immediate control. So there is a sense of allowance for those things that are going to happen whether you are contributing, participating, or able to control them at all. So Scholars have to learn to surrender, and they need that. They will find that they navigate into positions where they have to surrender to forces greater than themselves. This is also how that rest comes about, because when the Scholar surrenders, they can “sigh” a sense of relief and truly become more centered again, centered back into themselves, into a more assimilative position in the life, rather than constantly distracted by the navigation of it. Do we have Scholars that would like to comment or validate or question? [Question] Yeah, it sounds like you are pointing to Scholars having some control issues. The question would be maybe how to differentiate between when to let go and allow for and when to know when you're more needed to step in. And this could be a reflection of my Server Casting as well. I have some trouble differentiating between the two, but I recognize the need to allow for things to just take place. MEntity: In terms of just the Scholar — we'll address the Server aspect in a moment — in terms of when to know when to surrender and when to rest versus when to step in is when you know that you will not be able to control it. This may require you to step in maybe once or twice to try, but more often than not, it's quite clear when you can and cannot control a situation. When you recognize “I cannot control this,” that is when you can step back and rest, because it is not in your hands. This does not mean that you do not have to contribute, or in any way participate, and what we'll do is we'll use a more simplistic scenario that you can then apply to more personal scenarios. If it is going to storm outside, you cannot change that it is going to storm. It is going to rain, it is going to have wind, and you cannot change that. You cannot change that, but what you can do is decide how to navigate that, and that would mean either choosing to stay inside — let the storm happen and stay inside — or be prepared with your raincoat and rain boots and your umbrella and go outside and know that you are still probably going to get wet and that you cannot necessarily control to the degree that you might get wet. Do you understand? [Comment] Yes MEntity: So it is the same in your personal life. There may be a storm brewing around you, and there may be a storm happening. So acknowledging that you cannot change that storm, but you can change how you navigate that storm makes a very big difference for the Scholar. It allows them to get their sense of power back, their sense of capacity to make sense of a situation back, because that is one of the things that Scholars have the greatest distraction with is trying to make sense of things, and it can drive them crazy if it seems senseless or there is a lack of capacity to assimilate the scenario. So knowing where the line is to draw between what you can control and when it is time to simply navigate what you can't control will help to bring that sense of rest back, that sense of centered state back. Do you understand? [Comment] Yes [Question] For a Scholar, you said True Rest earlier, so is it individual to each scholar, obviously, what their True Rest is, so that's what has to come into play or is it really, literally rest? MEntity: We meant it in a broader term. Your Life Task and the Pillars that support your life task — with one of them being True Rest and all the different examples that might fulfill True Rest — could come into play. But we meant the term, or the phrase, in the way that that category is defined in the first place. True Rest means that you feel inspired again, that you are truly replenished, that you come back feeling motivated and enthusiastic from the experience. [Question] So Scholar hygiene I've read, like taking baths and laughter, would that fall into the category of rest? MEntity: It most certainly will help the Scholar, yes. That is the case when it comes to your generalities, you can go take your bath and you can pursue moments of laughter and have a good time. But what matters here, in the context of this topic today, is when you are in a situation you cannot control and you find yourself struggling. You won't probably be able to run off to a bathtub or necessarily laugh in those circumstances, though you would want to resort to your capacity to discern how much control you have and then how to navigate within that. [Comment] So detachment would come into play, in terms of stepping back and letting things happen as they may. MEntity: That is a word that you could use, yes. We will say more that discernment would be more specifically applicable here, because that is what happens for the Scholars. The detachment will help, but the discernment — that being able to define and differentiate between what I can control and what I cannot — is what's important. If that requires detachment, then that will be of help for you. But the key is that discernment … and then, of course, integrating that into yourself so that when that scenario comes around again, you know that “I don't have control over this. I can only navigate this, and here's how I choose to navigate it.”

    [Extracted from Michael Speaks: Inputs] MEntity: ... First, we will define “INPUT” as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends. ... 3 of the Roles in Essence have ONE INPUT; these are the Scholar, Warrior, and King Essences. ... The strange distribution of Inputs has to do with the Roles themselves acting as “sensory units,” so to speak, for Tao. Because the Physical Plane is of the most unique and densest of all Planes, three Roles in Essence are distributed with ONE INPUT so as to gain awareness, Process, and Comprehend FROM BEGINNING TO END in a linear fashion inherent to the Physical Plane. ... The Scholars (who are the memory cells of Tao in many ways) have ONE INPUT so as to maintain a direct link to the Akashic Records/Plane. Because Scholars are specifically designed as ambient, experiential “sponges”, this ONE INPUT allows them to act as excellent, direct, recording devices and conduits between the Physical Plane and the Akashic Plane. Although all fragments update their own records (usually having to be done between lives or through conscious awareness), Scholars do so for themselves, their Entity, and/or Cadre. Because Scholars, Warriors, and Kings are by nature inclined to focus on very specific themes for study, conquest, or mastery (respectively), having One Input allows them to excel in the Task at Hand (by standards of Essence.) With this understanding, it would not be amiss to say that ALL FRAGMENTS have at least One Input focused on NOW, or in other words, capable of being focused on the present, the task at hand, the moment, etc. The following information was appended to the original Michael Speaks transcript from which this material was extracted: MEntity: In general, Kings, Warriors, and Scholars, can "only" process one theme at a time, whether the Personality is submerged in several experiential themes or not. If needed, the focus of the Input can change for some lengths of time, but these Roles will not find the comfort and adaptability to be submerged in several themes at once. We are not speaking of their being capable of watching TV while sewing. We are speaking of actual life themes as they apply to Essence's digestion of them. Scholars, Warriors, and Kings move steadily and enduringly through their experiences until comprehension is attained. We say "comprehension" as it applies to ESSENCE, not necessarily Personality. Until the Older Soul Ages, Personality is not so concerned with comprehension simultaneously to Essence's comprehension. Question: This is a generic Michael question beyond just Inputs, but I'm wondering how Scholars keep "records" differently from other Roles. MEntity: Scholars not only manage their own Records, but as each Essence updates its own records within the Entity and Cadre, the Scholars update the Akashic Records. In other words, each Essence has its own "personal library", but the Scholar extends on that to make that information "universal". Keeping that information as up-to-date, so to speak, as possible allows many versions of consciousness and sentience to draw from it. This is the stuff of new universes. Scholars have One Input as having One Input increases the durability to indulge in specific experiences, rather than touching briefly on a theme, and then moving to new ones, then returning later with new awareness. Scholars complete their themes so as to have a "purer" experience.

    [Excerpted from OMW: Manifesting Power] MEntity: We will discuss the concept of Power with you today. First, we will clarify what is meant by Power in our teaching, which we think is a meaning that extends to include most uses of the word. In our teaching, Power is an Expression Axis term. This is because Power can come from any number of sources and be implemented through any number of methods, but it requires Form, Expression, for it to be in existence. All terms on the Expression Axis require a move into Form for existence. The terms we choose for our Overleaf system are part of every individual life in some way, even as each Personality is a particular combination of emphasized terms. For example, one grows in a lifetime even if one does not have a Goal of Growth. Each fragment will have to contend with his or her relationship to Power, even if the Mode is not Power. Power is a spectrum that describes one's presence. The form of any kind of Power can range from between violent oppression that destroys to a quiet lucidity that awakens. Each Essence comes with a kind of built-in source of Power. How that comes into form is up to that fragment, and we have seen that every fragment will explore the entire range from violence to lucidity. Each Essence Role has a specific source or style of Power. We will share these with you, now. Keep in mind that Power is either GENERATED or EXTRACTED. There are other terms that could be used to describe these, but these terms will do. Power either comes from within, or without. Power that comes from within is regenerative and unlimited. Power that comes from without is dependent and limited. Keep this in mind as we describe the various Power of each Role. ... SCHOLARS SCHOLARS carry with them the Power of INFORMATION. The Power of Information is the means of providing missing, valuable, and important facts. When this Power is dependent and extracted, it can show up as TRIVIA. This is the expounding of facts without context, value, importance, or meaning. When Power shows up like this for the Scholar, it can trivialize their power, prompting them to expound even further as an effort to amplify that power as it weakens. It can also show up as trivializing others in their sharing of facts and information. When this Power is from within and regenerative, it shows up as TIMING. This is the Power of Information as "perfect" timing. It is the availability of information and facts as they are needed, wanted, and in context. When facts are expounded upon without timing, it is trivia.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: June 2011] [NicholasBabylove] what is the “easiest” way we older souls can create/allow more money into our lives? Is the lack of money even though we have tons of intelligence/talents/skills just something we choose to deal with…and we tend to leave it at that? I know it’s different for each of us, but I’d like some kind of suggestion that might touch on all oldies generally… or, the oldie students… [MEntity] The concept of having to funnel one's talents and skills into something that can be monetarily valuable is not complicated or difficult for the older soul to implement, but when those talents and skills must conform to a younger paradigm, it can be complicated and difficult. The older soul would benefit from fully embracing whatever older soul talents and skills he or she may have, and then complementing that with younger soul packaging. The gift inside is what matters, if you will, but packaging is important in the current paradigm. Some of the most useless and detrimental products and services are eagerly purchased in the current paradigm, due to packaging. So our first suggestion is to give great priority to “packaging,” as the talents and skills are natural, and while they require their own kind of nurturing, it is the packaging that is often neglected. This neglect of packaging is because the older the soul grows, the more integrity the Personalities tend to have. And for the older soul, the skew between “Presentation” and “Content” can seem great, when it comes to catering to a younger paradigm. But it is key. To sanctimoniously neglect your younger soul skills for packaging and presentation would be similar to a teacher in grade school refusing to “talk down” to her students. It does not have to mean a degradation of content, nor a skew away from integrity, but a matter of translation. We do not speak to you in a way that we speak to each other, for instance. We must package our teaching in a way that allows you to grow with what we share. And so it is for the older soul to realize: that what you have to give, to share, to use for profit or nourishment, must be translated through a medium that can allow for reception. After Packaging would be Paralleling, if you will. By this we mean that you will find your niche receivers that have no need for a translation of what you have to give, and this can be done alongside the packaging, so that both facets of you are fulfilled. One does not have to replace the other. The third consideration is Practicality. You must feed and clothe yourself along the way toward gaining your footing with what you truly prefer to use as your means of income. Working the jobs that you do not like would do well to be seen as simply a part of the dynamic ways that you provide love for yourself and your life. Again, one does not have to replace the other. It is okay to be mundane. The lack of money in the older souls' lives is not a matter of any lessons needing to be learned, but a result of choices that prefer minimalism over the demands of complexity. Most older souls have learned how to work the system, so to speak, of the Physical Plane in a way that never leaves them in true danger, but allows them to “get by” as they tend to more important experiential matters. Many older souls would “trade the world” for the intimacy, friendship, love, honesty, kindness, peace, etc that life offers. Older souls can be wealthy, and often quite easily, but those factors mentioned above would probably need to be considered more seriously, and then the final concern: letting people do with your talents and skills what they will. For instance, the packaging of some old soul concepts, such as “The Secret,” gained great notoriety and profit, but we could say that most gained nothing from the information. Not because the information was invalid, though it was severely compromised, but because people will do with what you offer, what they will. We must have the same concept intact for us to share with you: we would say that only 25% of our active students actually “hear” us in a way that is truly meaningful, and even fewer apply the teachings in a way that proves meaningful results. But this cannot be a reason for us not to share. True sharing, whether with a price or for “free,” is never without profit. So our sharing with you our teaching is as much for US, as it is for you; this means whatever you do with what we share, we still gain. And so it is with your talents and skills: you would want to share those with the intent of True Sharing, in that you own the vital element that is the pleasure you gain from it. True Sharing is mutually beneficial. However, the only one in the equation of sharing that you have control over is you, and so to set the standard for sharing to be that you actually enjoy it, then the sharing is True.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2004] [kittlekats41] This is based on a personal experience, but I am interested in an answer that everyone can relate to: when we moved down to Atlanta we stopped overnight at a hotel. Upon arrival here [to Atlanta] the energy felt off-centered and discordant, which it hadn't been before. One of the cats was especially vocal and restless. We determined that we had picked up a ‘stray’ energy that attached itself to us at the hotel with a number of others; we were able to clean the space and remove the energy into a better environment for it – an old tree that is grounded. The question is: a) how common is it for this type of experience to occur? b) how can we deal with it when it does? and c) are animals a common barometer to identify when it happens? That is my question:-) [M Entity] We would first respond that we would not describe any energy as “stray” that might attach itself to you randomly. We have rarely seen a case of energetic resonance that was not in some way “invited” or allowed. However, what you refer to as “hotels” and “motels” are full of what might accurately be described as “echo energies”. In other words, the emotional and intellectual imprints from the many fragments passing through a small space (which is assumed by fragments to be a sanctuary in many ways) can become literally “coated” with these “echoes” of energy. In the same way that there are “ghosts” of the dead, there are “ghosts” of the living, as well. “Ghosts” are merely echoes of energy, whether from the living or the dead. With all of that being said, your being affected by an echo is based on a particular resonance you must have had with that “echo”. It appears to us that you were in a space of deeper concern, worry, anticipation, and possibly anxiety, than you were in the previous trip. [kittlekats41] true [M Entity] This would naturally align you with any other fragment's concerns, worries, anticipations, anxiety that had left an imprint in that hotel room or location. This alignment then would naturally amplify your own energy, yet again, and because it then becomes disproportional to your original concerns, etc., it can feel strangely disconcerting and distracting. [kittlekats41] would that echo remain as a presence for a number of weeks afterwards and be detected by the animals? [M Entity] We will respond to your questions as quickly and as orderly as possible. The way you can “deal with this” is to consciously “clear the space” in any environment that has acted as a sanctuary for so many other fragments. Doing so upon settling into your room can greatly increase your experience of peace and temporary ownership of that space. A simple visualization of a colorful light of your choice sweeping through the room and clearing it of all darker or heavier energies is enough. It is not necessary to create an elaborate ritual; just a simple, conscious shifting of the room's energy to accommodate you is enough. We would suggest avoiding rituals focusing on “protection”, as this simply amplifies a contrast between you and your space and does not effect a peaceful, restful shift. Animals are more sensitive to these echoes than most humans, but they are even more sensitive to the effects of the echoes on their human companions. In other words, your animal companion was responding to your own agitations than to the separate “stray energy” you theorized. The “echo” remains only in the space in which is imprinted, but the effects of that echo upon you can last for weeks. It was Good Work that you created time to transform that effect upon you and to ground yourself again.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: September 2000] [echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I'm thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.) [Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use a kind of telepathic medium to grab the attention of the caretaker. We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2009] [Question] This will seem off the wall but I have a reason for asking it: I understand you do not predict so I am interested in probabilities. If an encounter had been planned in, say, oh the next 2 years by what would be considered to us “alien” in nature, it would seem like those plans would have already been put into place due to logistical reasons. Is there a high probability in say the next 2 years of alien contact here on Earth? If so, where would this species be coming from and what are their intentions? [Michael Entity] Alien contact has already become a rather substantial part of your world, albeit in ways that are not obvious to the population. There are many reasons for its not being a part of the world-at-large, most reasons being that it is illegal, so to speak, by standards set among traveling species. “Official” contact is with small groups and has a long-term goal that is intended for slow reveal and acclimation, but there are problems that continue to come up for that plan, moving the debate toward a sudden reveal as being more practical. The debate of “sudden vs slow” has been on the table for nearly 30 years, regularly stalled because of world politics that reveal the inherent dangers that already exist among humans toward each other, let alone toward an off-planet species. Your species is seen as extremely vulnerable and dangerous, and nothing in recent history has suggested otherwise to sway the debate. [Question] Can you elaborate of the types of small groups? [Michael Entity] Though we described the contact with off-planet species as “substantial,” we will clarify that it has been minimal in the “official” contexts. The debates are among the off-planet species. There are no regular board meetings with Humans. The “official” contact has been made with military groups, as most already suspect. Tests and observations will continue in the forms of “crop circles” and through observing your media portrayal in both fiction and non-fiction of off-planet species, and various other ways, along with the debate. Those most interested in your well-being are the same circle of species who helped relocate your species here long ago as a means to protect you from extinction. Most of what we are conveying to you is incapable of being validated, so we do not ask you to “believe” us, as we do not ask this of you for any part of our teaching or sharing of our perception.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 1999] [S5] I had read in earlier channeling where you said the fragment Adolf Hitler was born a Jew in Israel in 1962 and that it would be a short life. I was wondering what ever became of that life and how it would pertain to burning karmic ribbons incurred? [Michael_Entity] This Fragment managed little in balancing Karma that life, since it was essentially to “take a break”… We do not see this fragment extant any longer. Though it may not “make sense” in light of the activities and Karma accumulated in the lifetime as Hitler, it is still all simply experience. Therefore, it is not essential to repay Karma in a “quick” manner. In fact, most involved with this fragment and his Karma are staying many lifetimes “away” from this fragment until more has been processed within themselves and their own “families”.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: May 2008] [Question] Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is said to suffer from an inability to recognize faces. it is almost too ‘appropriate’ Any comments? [Michael Entity] The condition that the princess experiences is often chosen as a method to help implement the Goal of Flow or Re-Evaluation. For some fragments it is a helpful method to remain present, and distant from concepts of identification. This can be turned into a positive or negative direction in terms of identification as one either sees the overall uselessness of being too defined by an identity, or begins to see oneself as the only “real face” in the faceless masses. Note: Inability to recognize faces is known as prosopagnosia.

Connotatively crying is usually called an emotional reaction. Yet the recognition of Truth is intellectual. So it seems to me that the definition is backwards. What am I missing here? [Michael Entity] Tears are the biological reaction to Truth; more accurately speaking, Tears are the biological response to the ACCEPTANCE of Truth. Acceptance is also Intellectually-based, or resonant to the Higher Intellect. People have come to associate Tears with Emotions because of the feelings that are often involved in the processing of Truth, and while the Emotional Center is used as a part of the process, so are other Centers, but the use of various Centers as a means to help integrate Truth does not mean that the symptom of Tears is linked to those Centers, specifically. Tears associated with sadness, elation, awe-inspiring beauty, happiness, excitement, pain, etc. are still provoked by the TRUTH of those experiences, not in the emotions fluctuating around those experiences. We have never said that Tears are not associated with Feelings, but they are not reactions or responses to Feelings. Another reason Tears are often thought to be associated with Emotion is because part of the blockage to Truth is frequently in the emotional realm. When that emotional blockage is breached, healed, transformed, etc, the acceptance of truth can be had, thus resulting in tears. Tears mean that there is no denying the truth of that moment or experience, ranging from a stubbed toe to the loss of a loved one, from a thrilling moment of clarity to a life-changing realization. [stryper] Would the removal of blockage be part of the relief people often feel after crying? (i.e. having intellectually known the truth, yet emotionally not accepting it) [Michael Entity] There are chemical compositions within Tears that are as biologically important to release as any other “waste,” and in that release there is often relief. Often the “waste” is directly related to the build up of denials, distractions, false truths, emotional blockages, etc.

    [Excerpted from NWM - Jan 15, 2015 - Seven Facets of Role] MEntity: Today, we are asked to discuss what might best be described as the "facets" of a Role. These would be the same, regardless of Soul Age, and do not represent a progression into the conscious use of the Role. The evolution of the use of a Role is relative to Soul Ages and Levels, so for instance, and Old Sage is very different from a Young Sage. But, today, we will discuss WHAT KIND of Sage, not necessarily how evolved the Sage. We see there is speculation as to correlation with Casting as a means for defining these variations on a Role, and that is in part true, but only in part. These Facets "rotate" for each Role, and while Casting tends to describe a default, a Role can have locked into any one of the Facets. ... 7 FACETS OF SCHOLAR For simplistic purposes, we WILL use the correlation of Casting to Role to help you to map the Facets, but what we will offer today are phrases or terms that might better capture the "sub-archetype" that is that Facet of that Archetype. We remind you that your Casting may not indicate which Facet of the Role you have locked into. THE SERVER-SCHOLAR might best be described as the QUIET CONDUCTOR. This is the Scholar with the high levels of attentiveness and efficiency that knows best how to move people, energy, and events like parts of an orchestra. Even when not in any obvious connection, this Conductor is keenly aware of how even the compartmental elements of the life are working together on some level. When this Scholar is in the Positive Poles, the Conducting is always for the best interest of what has been deemed this symbolic orchestra of the life. The efficiency and attention serve to bring out the best "sounds" of all involved so that all benefit. When this Scholar is in the Negative Poles, the Conducting is not in the best interest of the orchestra, so to speak, but in the best interest of just keeping things quiet, contained, and manageable. THE ARTISAN-SCHOLAR might be described as the FAST THINKER. This is the Scholar who is quick on his feet, thorough in his thought, and quite vast in his range of thought. He is able to extrapolate quite quickly from data already known, and present valid ideas and concepts. To "save time" in our delivery today, we will only share the Negative Poles, since the basic description has its Positive Poles implied. When this Scholar is in the Negative Pole, the Fast Thinker drops into being a Fast Liar. THE WARRIOR-SCHOLAR might be described as THE OPPOSITION. This is the Scholar who actively challenges you, ideas, and concepts, and is conservative and deliberate, headstrong. This Scholar will very easily flip to another point of view, as long as it is challenging. In the Negative Pole, this Scholar just becomes pushy, badgering, and even bullying in perspectives. THE SCHOLAR-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE DISCIPLINED - this is the Scholar who is impelled and driven and consumed by whatever has drawn his attention and interests. He loses himself in this, but for the sake of complete sensory experience. In the Negative Pole, this Scholar reduces himself to addictions, compulsions, obsession, and does not lose himself IN an experience, but loses himself TO an experience. In other words, loses himself, altogether. This Scholar will try to compensate through the use of control and even micro-managing. THE SAGE-SCHOLAR - This Scholar might best be described as THE JUDGE. This is the Scholar with a keen sense of justice, "right," "wrong," and is very precise in his calculations, whether in broader, intangible ways such as assessing character, or in direct and tangible ways such as assessing actions. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar can fall into incite, provocation, barbed and abrasive assessments. THE PRIEST-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE PHILOSOPHER - This Scholar is slower in his thinking, pondering, and tends away from conclusions and closed systems of thinking. Though he would be methodical, intellectual, and quite fond of systems, it would only be for the sake of grasping the nature of a thing, a person, or existence. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar might fall into escapist daydreaming, logical loops, and confusion. THE KING-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE HUMANITARIAN - This is the Scholar who is most concerned with principles, ethics, quality of life gained from experiences, and not so much about curiosity, risk, and adventures. The emphasis is on how the knowledge can help sustain quality of life. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar falls into apathy, dispassion, disillusionment. Though these are quite brief descriptions of these Facets of Scholar, we ask the Scholars here if there is any resonance to one of these for you. [There were responses from a few Scholars attending]

    [excerpt from TT: 2001-05-03] [Anne49] How is it possible to tell if someone is experiencing the positive or negative pole through the 3rd internal monad? [Michael_Entity] The Negative Pole of the Third Internal Monad is heavily marked with issues of Authority and constant battles with that which is perceived as Authority. The Positive Pole is marked by the ability to negotiate with or at least remain detached from the perceived Authority.

    [MEntity]: The Third Internal Monad is always about coming to terms with one's own definition of freedom and developing self-reliance, which requires a kind of rebellion from those who have provided structure, shelter, and nurture for any length of time. [MEntity]: In that rebellion, the experience can range between simply establishing new foundations that extend from previous ones, and having to build from scratch the new foundations from ones that have collapsed, have been destroyed, or were realized to have never existed.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2004-12-12] [Tibtyc] Good evening. This is Tibtyc (I think). Michael, do you have humour where you live? Do you laugh a lot, and how? Is humour and/or laughter something universal, or merely terrestrial? Some say Jesus never laughed. Does the Tao laugh, and can we join in the laughter? [Michael_Entity] Yes, we have a sense of humor, though from your perspective it may be quite “dry” or even startling. The known universe (as it exists as part of what we refer to as “TAO”) is built from three primary building blocks that can be described as TRUTH, LOVE, and ENERGY. While Physical, there are biological reactions to the pure experiences of any one of those building blocks. Tears are the biological reaction to Truth; Pleasure is the biological reaction to Love; and Laughter is the biological reaction to Energy (which can be translated as Oneness or Beauty). That which brings you laughter is that which implies a momentary, profound resonance. Some of you may believe that some laughter or humor is cruel, but that is not the case when it is genuine, even if you do not agree with the reasons or “tastes” of someone’s humor. For instance, there are many non-physical entities who find the afterlife of many fragments to be quite humorous, particularly those who have constructed a “Hell”, but this is not a cruel humor. Humor is entirely based on Paradox, which finds its Resolution in Resonance. When some Entities see a fragment flailing in Hell, it is humorous because it is of the fragment’s own making and this self-punishment does not have to be endured, which is the Paradox. The Resolution comes in the slow realization of the fragment that it is not necessary. The Resonance comes in the fact that “we have all been there.” We find many fragments methods of death to be particularly humorous, specifically those of the Expression Axis. We do not have bodies with which to laugh as you would recognize it, but we do “laugh.” [flimflamdamn] er, such as? (Sorry for the interruption but I just have to ask here!) [upstaate] really, such as? [Michael_Entity] One of your more humorous deaths, Leela, was approximately 4000 years ago while living as a brooding hunter who eschewed contact with people as a means to commune with and consume “nature.” [flimflamdamn] don’t tell me, I communed with a poisonous snake, or a bad mushroom. [Michael_Entity] You died on the horns of a buck after several days entangled there. [flimflamdamn] yeesh; ha ha [upstaate] ewe [kittlekats41] well, you did ask. . . [Michael_Entity] We admitted that our humor could be startling. [flimflamdamn] it’s funny too [flimflamdamn] makes me wonder what the buck did! Anyway…. [Tibtyc] But can not humour be paradox-free? Just Recognition… [Michael_Entity] We do not know of genuine humor that is paradox-free. There is always an element of surprise, even with recognition, resolution, and resonance. And finally, if one considers that everything is an extension of Tao, then yes, Tao does experience laughter/humor. We will add that many of you can experience a most profound humor if you stop for one single moment and see the higher perspective of your life, including the drama, pain, and challenges. Sometimes a fragment who is extant can “get” the humor of his or her life and appreciate the absurdity of some of the events. If you can see the humor of your life, you are closer to Home than ever.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2004] [upstaate] How much importance is it to have magnetic energy work to our physical beings in lieu of all the technology surrounding our environments? How much of this new technology that we have……i.e.; cell phones, power lines, microwaves, etc….affects our physical bodies and is it harming us? New Age science says that we need magnetic energy work to balance what is affecting us… “bombardment” is what they call it. [Tibtyc] I had the same question… Are they dangerous? [Michael_Entity] Is your final question about magnetic therapies or about the effects of your electronic society? [upstaate] both [Michael_Entity] We will respond to both, then. In response to the question of whether these energies are harmful to the human body, we would say that they are, though on fairly low levels and not any more harmful than the effects of your own Sun. In fact, we would say that certain rays of your Sun are more harmful than most electronic systems in which you must move. And while we do not trivialize the question, we would also say that most individual belief systems are even more harmful to the body than the Sun, diet, or Electronic influences. We include that statement merely as a means to put the term “harmful” into perspective. We have seen no validity to the use of magnets as treatments or preventions against electronic influences, but this is because the concept is limited at this point in development. The theories are flawed. The human body is highly adaptable, which is why it was chosen by your sentience. The bombardment of energy within a technological society is usually proportional to the adaptability of the body. The most detrimental aspect of your technological progress isn’t found in the “waves”, but in the difficulty adapting to the glut of information that is accessible to you. The human psyche has not adapted well to the amount of information and input that is available. This is not to say that it will not adapt, but if there is an effect of detriment to the human, it is on the psyche, not the physical body. Of the energies you described earlier in your question, “microwaves” are the only energies we have seen to have an immediate and long-term effect on the physical body. The use of a microwave for cooking food appears to destroy nutritional value and suppress the Pineal Gland’s function. [Tibtyc] Where does this put the Internet? [Michael_Entity] Ironically, what has come to be known as the Internet, with its immediate access to massive amounts of information, has the greatest potential for implementing the adaptation of the human psyche. This is because the Internet, as it becomes available to the average person, will eventually encourage the refinement of the individual’s search for information. [upstaate] so, are we what we think or believe then, and only that? [Michael_Entity] It is more than a cliché to say that you are what you think. We would agree with that.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: April 2002] [LoriA] Has there been any discovery, as yet, of the manuscripts (for lack of a better word) that are hidden underneath or near the Sphinx? Will this information be available to the world in our lifetime? [M_Entity] No, there are quite strict laws from the locals preventing much in the way of new discoveries, especially discoveries that may contradict the determined interpretations of these landmarks. We cannot predict if any “manuscripts” may be found within your lifetime, but we can say that there is material that would overturn the pseudo-historical assumptions long upheld as truth. Until the need to preserve the culture and society found to be so precious to those in power, any contradictions will be withheld or destroyed, even if found. There are many contradictions to the most mainstream and “scientific” of interpretations of the area made public, but these are mostly ignored or overlooked. It is always a challenge to replace a paradigm. We don’t believe any significant reinterpretations of these landmarks will come until significant contact with extraterrestrials is brought to bear.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2002] [oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps? [M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth. [oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent? [M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.” Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized.

    [Excerpt from 20100804 GLB POF. The full content at this link is located in the F&W Club, which requires membership for access.] [Geraldine] I would like some information on both why the information is so discrepant between Troy and other channels on when ensoulment started, i.e., 65,000 years versus 6 million years, plus more information on that long time before the archeological record. I realize that only a relative handful of souls started back at the 6 million mark but, we have been told that there have been Infinite Souls that date back to 4.5 million years, and that another entire civilization existed at about 1 million years. Martha and I both have had incarnations that date back to the 6 million and 1 million marks. [MEntity] Discrepancies will always be in place for such topics that have no solidity in World Truth, which prompts some channels to override our information with what he or she has deemed makes the most sense by current standards or understanding. The origins of humanity are still quite a mystery to many, and have left room for speculation to range between fantastical to indifference. Most information about the origins of humanity is more reflective of the one who has decided what makes the most sense than it does about the origins of humanity. Some of our channels are quite schooled in current thought and will use that as the limitation on what we can offer in response to historic or prehistoric questioning, but some of our channels have no schooling or restrictions and we can offer a bit more accurate information in some instances through those channels. What we would suggest is an exploration of the evolution of archeology, geology, and other arts and sciences that help to determine patterns and origins of species. In that exploration, we would suggest examining whether those fields continue to push the timeline backwards into time, or do they continue to confirm, secure, and validate current thought. In that exploration, when a timeline seems to be secure, are there anomalies that have to be ignored for that timeline to make sense? If you can see that the timeline not only continues to be redefined, but grows further back into time, suggesting cycles of civilizations, rather than linear evolution, then you may find some validity in the possibility that humans have been around a lot longer than is currently realized or accepted. [Geraldine] A whole lot of PhDs have had dissertations written that are at risk if changes are accepted. [MEntity] In the end, the discrepancies must simply be held up against what you feel is true internally, and externally. When there is lack of conclusive validity externally, then one can use what is available to help bring about True Validity as best one can. The questions we have suggested for the empirical evidence in your exploration can help you to measure the various discrepancies for accuracy/validity in terms of where the patterns appear to be leading, even if no conclusions can be drawn, yet. We think we have responded to this sufficiently for now.

    [Excerpt from TT (POF): 2011-05-06] [Geraldine] Michael Cremo has published several books that purport to push human existence back 2.3 billion years or more; however, his thesis is based on a non-evolutionary human, i.e., modern man type fossilized footprints caught in 1.3 million year old strata. He’s attempting to establish a Vedic truth. However, while Michael Entity has said that we started ensouling 6 million years ago, Michael Entity has said that modern humans come from 7 different human species or stocks. Would you clarify our human lineage as we’ve been ensouling and evolving? I realize that it’s possible that not all hominid offshoots or lines may have been discovered or named as yet. But, according to these lines, human development started very ape-like. [MEntity] Keeping in mind that we will do our best to use the terminology that is always shifting and changing with the growing understanding of Human and Earth history, we will try to respond: The greatest flaw in understanding Human and Earth history is in trying to tidy it up as a linear and clear evolution, when, in fact, there have been ebbs, flows, branches, and leaps in development from approximately 6 million years ago. Turning your history into a clean line is creating a segmenting, at best, of the history, and this then leads to paradigms that alter the interpretation of evidence contrary to the paradigm. Or rather, distort the interpretation. Because of the experimental splicing of genes during the relocation of your species to the current planet, several variations of “human” came about, many of which did not “evolve,” even as the fragments using the bodies did. This leaves several dead ends, so to speak, which is a very different path from the evolution of the consciousness that uses these bodies. To simplify our response to such a rather large question, we will have to say that Homo Sapiens happen to be the current line that is currently stable, but that over your past, intervention has come into play to genetically recalibrate and stabilize, or generate branches of development, of the species. Until intervention and off-planet origins are considered valid, the timeline and evolution of your species will remain piecemeal and clumsy. For instance, the Australopithecus was used as a stabilizing genetic resource at one point, but was not an actual sentient version of the Human. [Note: Sentient means ensouled] Again, we are a bit compromised in our capacity to be clearer as Troy recovers, and we can revisit this subject in deeper detail within the context of a more focused format.

    [Excerpt from TT (Private Session): 2011-05-26] [Geraldine] You mentioned a great civilization about 1 million years ago. Where was this located? [MEntity] Most sprawling cities have always been along coastlines, having various portals and centers, but connected, nonetheless, allowing for them to be “one city.” Most of the coast lines where these existed are no longer coastlines, but could be said to have existed on nearly every known continent at this time. [Geraldine] How did they integrate their farming/food needs with this type of urban sprawl? [MEntity] Having the coastal sprawl allowed for easy access via water, air, or land, along with great resources of energy and food from the sea. Foods and “farming” that could not be sustained on coast lines were simply further inland, and in fertile lands that acted as resources. The concepts that were in place at the time were for the coastline cities to be the end-result of the infrastructures that support the populations, so that the “cities” were where life was lived, and the inland or sea-bound resources were only there for those resources, and then funneled into those areas of living. These networks were very much modelled after what might be seen as a “chakra” system and its meridians. This would usually show up as the various centers along the coastline “specializing” in various relevant contributions to the whole, with a “spiritual center” a “sexual center” an “entertainment/communications center,” etc. and those who were skilled in those contributions, naturally, would be at the core of those, traveling to the other centers for needs beyond their skills. [Geraldine] Civilizations don’t begin during the immediate period. There is a several hundred year period where population explodes, technology rapidly evolves, and changes happen. Since I’ve been told about the level of human civilization at the 1 million year mark, were there pivotal changes that caused this level of expansion? [MEntity] There is always an intervention factor for every wave of civilizations that have come and gone; even the current civilization (or mankind) as a whole is a result of intervention. Because the human species is a hybrid, there have always come periods of instability in the bodies that make up humans as hosts for sentience, and these usually peak in large cycles, then collapse, and have to be stabilized by intervention, and then rebuilding begins. The interventions happen in two ways: through caretaker intervention, which might be seen as “aliens,” and through the bringing of the Logos through the Infinite Soul manifestations. When metaphysical instability begins to be profound, the Infinite Soul manifestation occurs. This metaphysical instability would include emotional, intellectual, and “spiritual” instability of the collective bodies at the time, and the probabilities that those bodies would give rise to even further instability without intervention. [Geraldine] Oh, so the list of Infant Souls that I have, along with times, are each an intervention to stabilize [Note: “Infinite Souls” was meant here. GLB] [MEntity] Infant Souls do not usually create the intervention, but are part of the population of those who are intervened. When physical instability begins to be profound, such as self-destruction, destruction of great parts of the planet, and degradation of capacities for evolution, then “alien” intervention occurs. On the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual levels, Intervention happens as necessary and has happened multiple times throughout the history of your sentience. However, “alien” intervention has occurred only 6 times, including the last “upgrade” that occurred approximately 300,000 years ago. In other words, the bodies that now make up Human sentience are the 6th “version” of Human on Earth, with gaps in the evolution between those leaps because of the interventions. The civilizations of approximately one million years ago were the result of approximately 750,000 years of evolution. Each “upgrade,” so far, has brought with it an acceleration of productivity and rematching of previous degrees of cultural and technological developments, albeit in quite varied variations. The next “upgrade” would be one that allows for the human body to travel beyond its Solar System, which, at this point, would destroy the bodies that are currently being used. [Geraldine] why do you use aliens in quote marks — are they something else, rather than alien species from other worlds? [MEntity] We are putting quotes around “aliens” as these non-terrestrial beings have long been involved with humanity, and while there are great aeons of time that pass between these interventions, they are no more “alien” than those who exist on continents other than your own. Because of the initial causes behind your species/sentience being redirected to Earth, the investment and passion in keeping your species alive and viable for sentience has been a long-term, profound commitment by a network of species beyond your Solar System. This is a rather unique and fascinating experiment. [Geraldine] Surely they’ve nearly cycled off? [MEntity] Some have. Yes. Some responsibilities have been “handed down” from one species to another species over time, but most are still the original species. It is not unusual for the incarnational cycle of a species/sentience to be the equivalent of what you might see as 10,000,000 years.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2001-01-18] [Dewliet] Hi Michael. In a recent session, you referenced a “time” when I had three bodies on this planet simultaneously. I’m wondering “when/where” fragments typically “meet up” with those types of “other selves” to assimilate and process information, and how this process differs from that of information gleaned from parallels. Do we have to “wait” until we reach the Causal plane before we learn what our “other selves” know? [Michael_Entity] When an Essence maintains more than one body within a time frame, they are treated as any incarnation would be treated. They are not the same as Parallel Selves, which exist within different dimensions, or frequencies. These are physical bodies within the same space and time. When one of the Personalities dies, it will process the life as would any other incarnation. Essence has a vast perspective and can either begin another life based on the experiences of that particular Personality’s experiences, even while another body is still alive, or “wait” for the various bodies to complete that overlapping time frame before gauging a new life. In terms of Parallels, there [are] not only parallel Earths and Lives, but Parallel Astral Planes and Causal Planes, created from the momentum of Entity choices, collectively. Parallels begin full integration after the Causal.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2004-07-26] 5th entity [Troy] Kerrin, here is some more VERY general info about your Entity 5: Cadre 1, Entity 5 is a fairly large Entity of about 1400+ fragments (entity 4 is the one that has less than 1000 fragments), and nearly 600 of Entity 5 is cycled off and with about 800 being incarnated at present. Most of the entity is made up of Scholars, Artisans, and Priests who teach, act, entertain, or travel as part of their living. Michael has said that Entity 5 is scattered around the globe on 6 continents. North America has about 150 members of Cadre One, Entity Five, and Michael says that the North Eastern United States has about 25-30 of them. Entity 5 members do tend toward more metropolitan hubs, such as Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Buffalo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., where other fragments may eventually pass through, or feel overwhelmed by population. An Entity 5 member may be that courteous someone with the exact directions or suggestion needed to make your day while visiting the big city! New York City area has about 15 members who would be considered residents as of last count, none of which are completely stationary, meaning they either move or travel a lot. Supposedly the point of all the traveling and being scattered is so every Entity member of that particular Cadre can go anywhere in the world and find at least one familiar Essence. Michael says that the 5th entity of any Cadre usually acts in this fashion. In fact, because of that, a lot of 5th Entity members tend to find physical plane companionship on a long-term basis with members of other 5th Entities from other Cadres. The telepathic bonding among 5th Entity members is not obvious, and it’s not more pronounced than any other Entity, but it does act as a navigational signal for the entire Cadre so that any fragment could find that 5th Entity member who is geographically closest, which could also be used BY a 5th Entity member to find another 5th Entity member. Let’s see if we can find a few, Kerrin!

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: August 1999] [M6] could we have an update on the manifestation of the Infinite soul? [Michael_Entity] We do not see full manifestation of the Infinite Soul anywhere on the planet currently, though there are 2 fragments that are “ready”, and 3 more will follow when the first two have begun. At least 5 manifestations will show that we have heard. These manifestations will include a young child apparently. The United States will most likely take the Teachings of either the child, a Priest son of a single parent female Server, or the Teachings of a female Sage. [bn] So the IS intends to manifest in more than one individual at the same time? Has this been done before? [Michael_Entity] We believe Buddha and Christ overlapped in impact, though not so closely. This is part of why you have “east” and “west”. We doubt the latest manifestations will be so easily used to segregate the world. [bn] Is the IS manifesting in 5 individuals due to the population or is this tied more to the lessons to bring? [Michael_Entity] Both.

    From a Personal Open Floor session - Jan. 18, 2012 [EricM]: This may be a broad question, but any insight would be cool [EricM]: I’ve been curious about the connections between human consciousness (or its shifts and patterns) and weather systems/the environment. On TLE, there have been some channeling tidbits that suggest some kind of connection or interaction. For example, one energy report said, “In a Higher Centered year, or a Moving Centered year, there tends to be greater emphasis on the Physical Plane patterns of weather as reflective of the collective consciousness.” [EricM]: There’s also the idea of various kinds of consciousness (such as those of devas, planets, etc). Can you elaborate on consciousness as related to earth’s weather/environmental systems and how human sentience interacts with it/influences it? [MEntity]: As Sentience evolves with a planet over time, the various elements of an environment, weather systems, ecosystems, etc begin to take a part in being a language for the subconscious of that Sentience. [MEntity]: This is made more significant by the effects those elements have on the bodies. [MEntity]: This is really no different from how every individual fragment processes his or her own thoughts, feelings, and actions as they play out through the "weather" of the individual body. [MEntity]: Whereas the health of an individual body could be said to be the "weather" of an individual, the actual weather of a geographical region could be said to be the health of that collective consciousness. [MEntity]: People choose, or gravitate toward, or "end up" in regions where the weather and climate most accurately reflect the processes that are important for that individual at the time, or for the lifetime. [MEntity]: In the same way that the individual body is the densest reflection of less-dense processes, so is the weather the densest reflection of the less-dense collective processes. [EricM]: Is this something that reflection can be interpreted? For example, "the drought here in Texas is possibly symptomatic of X" [MEntity]: Yes. We will get to that in a moment. [EricM]: lol k :) [MEntity]: Because weather and health are the densest levels of processing, they are also "slower" in acting as reflections of inner processes. [MEntity]: So, for instance, one's "cold" is indicative of processes that may no longer be obviously-relevant to the conscious mind, as the events have passed, but the processes continue. [MEntity]: And so the weather for a region may be reflective of past processes of that population. [MEntity]: That "delay" in reflection is different for different regions and peoples. [MEntity]: On an individual basis, this is often linked to Frequency. [MEntity]: On a collective basis, this is often linked to whatever has become the most-dominant common denominator among those people, such as Soul Age, Frequency, Body Types, Chief Features, etc. [MEntity]: As mentioned before, the symbolic language of climate and weather does have meaning that can be interpreted to some extent. [MEntity]: To start with your example, Eric, we can say that any weather or climate that is dry tends to be linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: When that dryness moves into extremes of drought, it is often indicative of Intellectual processes that have lost all capacity to bear fruit, bring a harvest, etc. This may seem too literal, but that is the simplicity of symbolism. [MEntity]: When fire then comes into play, it is now a matter of Defensiveness that has become consuming of the Intellect. [EricM]: interesting [Martha]: Eric, I think Michael has nailed our region [EricM]: no kidding [MEntity]: Wind is also linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: And in some areas, such as "tornado alley," this is where the Intellect is reflected as being the most confused. [MEntity]: Cold climates are also linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: Water is linked to the Emotions, of course. [MEntity]: So areas that are prone to flooding are often areas where those fragments are working out their overflowing, or powerful emotional processes. [MEntity]: Something like a hurricane, then, is often generated among those who are processing the powerful combinations of Intellect and Emotions. [MEntity]: We will point out here that it is not that a region "creates" or "chooses" a hurricane, for example, but that collective processes of emotions and intellect may tend to generate these as byproducts. [EricM]: as one does not necessarily choose an illness, but it gets generated by choices made [MEntity]: In areas where there is little change in weather, or no distinct shift in Seasons, it can often be an area where people have chosen to emphasize exploration and processing of whatever that particular region is emphasizing symbolically. [MEntity]: What we would have to do is dedicate an entire session to this topic, and map out the various symbolic reflections of environment and weather, and describe some regional details as examples. [EricM]: that would be fine, it's just good to have a few points to start with

    [Excerpt from TT: 2000-03-02] [See Conscious Connection to Essence, Parts 1-3, in their entirety] [Michael_Entity] In our sharing with you our various perspectives of what is and isn’t being conscious of Essence, we believe a practical examination of each Essence Role would be beneficial. In our examination we will share what we perceive are the Maya (or Great Lesson) of that particular role and a more ‘organic’ approach to determining what might be considered rejection of Essence or what might be considered acceptance of Essence. We will note here that the positive and negative poles of the Essence ARE NOT indications of being conscious or accepting of Essence. A fragment in the Negative Poles is just as potentially “in Essence” as a fragment in the positive poles, at least in terms of experiencing its life. What we have sought to exchange with you is what it means to reject Essence or accept Essence as part of your primary being. Those who reject Essence are in deep isolation and a myriad of other traumatic or deteriorating experiences, regardless of how together their life appears or how wonderful their work and relationships and successes are. Those who are accepting and conscious of Essence usually have the enthusiasm to ‘make the best of everything’, even in the midst of what ‘should’ be devastating. Poverty, drama, accidents, horror are NOT signs of disconnection from Essence, they are merely experiences. A positive pole role can still be at its apparent ‘best’ yet still be disconnected from Essence. A negative pole role can be as difficult and trying as expected, and be conscious. The keys are in the act of Decisions and CHOICES. In the moments of your darkest despair, if you can “look up” and recognize that this space is simply where you are at the moment, even if you seek no resolution beyond that realization, half of your battle is completed. When you say “yes, this is where I am right now, I know I could do something but I do not feel like it right now”, you have granted yourself an open door to Essence. Acknowledging your state of mind, your resistance, your struggles, etc. are in that very moment your decision and choice to allow or change, you become immediately centered and present, regardless of your choice in either direction. This will immediately and in that moment connect you consciously to Essence. This does not mean your mood or situation will magically remove itself from your life, but you have opened your world and option for greater probabilities by that single choice, a millionfold. Besides your initial acknowledgment that you may have dropped your connection to Essence, we will say that the most powerful and profound choice you can make next is to ASK FOR HELP. The body is not designed to sustain animation and life without connection to Essence for any extended period of time once sentience has moved in. We want to note at this point that there is no REAL disconnection from Essence; we merely use these terms for convenience, even the term ‘rejection’ is inaccurate in light of the truth, but these terms capture the experience and we will continue to use them with this understanding. We will begin now with each Essence, but first, we will pause for a few questions, if there are any, about what we have shared thus far. Therefore, each Essence will have its “Great Lesson” and this ‘lesson’ will always recur each lifetime in some form. There will be no lifetime that does not struggle with this ‘lesson’, however briefly. Regardless of the dynamics of personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges, though it is seen from a very different perspective and eagerly played with. This results from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane while being Astral. The body has to regain consciousness each lifetime regardless of soul age and seeks to grow back into the soul age last reached in the previous life. We will address the SCHOLAR now. The Scholar that is connected to Essence and conscious has learned its Great Lesson, which revolves around the reality of shared love. This Scholar has realized with a great amount of profundity that they will not love another until they have sought to love themselves. As we have said, there are many of these Role symptoms you all may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see they are a deeper lesson when specifically considered. All other Roles have an “easier” time at loving and being loved than the Scholar does. The Scholar who is connected to Essence has realized they are whole and complete, that they like themselves and have decided to trust and open their hearts to their life. They recognize that ALL aspects of life are capable of being loved, even themselves and all the hard times passed through. When the Scholar is disconnected or rejecting of Essence, they do their best to ignore their lives, to resist the examination that not everything is fine. This Scholar refuses to examine their vulnerabilities and have not dealt with their shadow feelings, resulting in acts of dominance or power struggles. They have never experienced intimacy of any depth due to these things. They become adept at arguing their points, ignoring the pains of their past, destroying or deteriorating any relationship or person whom touches too closely too personal areas of pain and sensation. They are Stubbornness manifest. They, more than any other Role, truly fear what is called love. The disconnected Scholar can still bring in a definite resource of love into their lives, but this is usually sought only out of need for refuge, a place to securely hold up the walls around their own hearts. The Scholar disconnected from Essence can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love them. Some suggestions for bringing more of Essence in might be to talk to children about their perspective on life, actually play with children or play on a child’s playground. Seeking laughter of any kind brings Essence immediately back in for a Scholar. Seeking the experience of the aroma and visuals of botanical gardens or observing the ocean can help, or having flowers within visual and olfactory range.
