    [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 a private session on December 12, 2014.] DianeHB: This is a question from Tex: "Whenever I put my attention on different people in our entity (C2/E1), it feels to me like the people in our entity have a lot of "weight." They seem to have this inherent ability to "get things done" with forcefulness. They also tend to hide this power behind a softness of the external personality in this life. It almost feels like they could swing a sword in battle (and probably have in past lives). My question is, is this just my perception because I'm in the entity, or is this a bit of a characteristic of those in this entity? By the way, is Hilary Clinton actually in C2/E1? Tex suspects not because she doesn't have that "weightedness" to her. MEntity: It is a valid perception. It is a kind of quiet power, that if blocked can churn into a storm, with still waters that run deep. These phrases are valid in describing inherent and persistent qualities among members of that entity. Hillary Clinton is, in fact, of this entity. IF the "weight" is not perceived, it is likely because of public portrayals, not from valid characteristics. Another way that this quiet power shows up, other than as weight, is in reservation or redirection. In other words, the more evolved this use of power, the more it is controlled in a way that chooses its battles, and simply washes over obstacles that would otherwise have been washed away. DianeHB: Hmm, I thought I did that (choosing my battles) because of Flow, but I guess not all of it is. MEntity: Think of it this way: You do not choose your battles "because of flow," but that because you are learning to choose your battles, you use flow to support this. Flow does not cause you to do this. Flow becomes a tool for your actions, not a cause for them. The Goal describes how you funnel actions and what is generated from that, but the cause comes before that. Think of another Goal, such as Acceptance. If you had Acceptance, you might use Acceptance as a means to navigate battles by accepting that not everything is actually a battle at all. If you had Discrimination, you might navigate by refining your choices and letting any unnecessary battles that do not serve you, but only distract you, to fall away. If you had Growth, you may take on every battle, but with an evolving capacity to only take the best from each. In truth, because you are in Flow, you can slide to any of these as a means of navigating battles, so every Goal's means of navigating battles might be familiar in some way. But, inherent in the nature of this entity is almost always a sense of navigating battles. DianeHB: That's true, I recognize all of these. DianeHB: Tex says that's the way our entity feels -- about navigating battles ### End of excerpt You may discuss this content within Diane's blog post.

    [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.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: May 2015] [Question] It is well known that events on the Physical Plane are linear in time, yet it has been mentioned several times that events on the Astral Planes and above are non-linear, as well as a future on this physical plane parallel in which technology may allow there to be instances of non-linear time. Could you please explain in further detail this concept of non-linear time, and how it works around the concepts we know of as special and general relativity, particularly temporal causality? [MEntity] The concept of non-linear time is best understood in vertical terms rather than horizontal terms, if you will. Linear progression happens “all the way” up and returning to Tao. Linearity is not lost, it is simply not the only perspective. The past is still the past, and the future is still the future, and the present is still the present. However, to help one imagine the concept that is often referred to as non-linear time, we would refer to the imagery or a 365 Day Wall Calendar. Within the Physical Plane, “you” exist within one of the boxes representing the Day. You progress from box to box, day to day, and there is very limited perception of the entirety of the year in front or in back of your point of reference. [Question] so would it be correct to say that as you move up vertically, you see more and more on how actions in the present effect the future, but future events cannot affect the past, so to speak? [MEntity] From the Astral Plane, time is still quite linear in experience, except that it could be said that you have the equivalent of a clear view of the Month, rather than the limitation of the Day. From the Causal Plane, the view is more like being able to see the entirety of the wall calendar for the Year. [Question] So you observe the events simultaneously, rather than individually? [MEntity] Yes, the comprehension, experience, and perception of events is not linear, even though the progression of events are. This is why we use the differentiation between horizontal and vertical: it is merely a matter of perspective that allows for the experience of non-linear aspects. [Question] Wouldn’t that interfere with choice though, if an action is seen to create an undesired outcome? [MEntity] No, it would not interfere with choice, but enhance it. Even within your single box, or your single day, you learn from experience how to anticipate the outcome of a choice before it is acted upon. Your capacity to anticipate within a day could be likened to our capacity to see probabilities on the metaphorical scale of the year. To be clearer in our response, we would have to include one more dimension of consideration with our visual. In “reality” there is never one calendar on that wall, but a multitude of calendars superimposed one over the other, over the other. The progression that one makes throughout the “year” would “weave” among those calendar layers, if you will. Each calendar layer representing a probability from the moment. Your choices determine what layer of calendar you are living. For instance, your choice to lash out in defense against an offense vs generating a creative, peaceful solution might be the difference between one layer and another layer of the year’s calendar day. [Question] Is this how parallels are constantly splitting off, based on the infinite number of choices that can be made? [MEntity] Yes. Our analogy of the Calendar Layers would be the equivalent of Parallels, or Dimensions. This is why when one might ask about a past life at one point in the current life, there may be a list of pasts that are linearly linked to the current life’s moment, but at another point in the life, that moment may have a very different set of linear links to the past, because it is resonant to a different layer of the calendar now. [Question] Though we do not see it on the physical plane, is it possible for us to jump around on different levels based on our choices, or new choices, or are we “stuck” on the same calendar? [MEntity] Shifting Parallels (calendars) happens on a regular basis, and happens on different scales from the Personal to the Global. Personal shifts in parallels can be generated through the accumulation of DECISIONS that then lead to pivotal CHOICES. We differentiate Decision from Choice. A Decision could be akin to HOW one takes the next step, and CHOICE is WHERE one takes the next step. Most Decisions create a path, and that path leads to a Choice. And that Choice can lead to generating a new parallel, or merging with another parallel. We will conclude this response with the clarification that the concept that “everything happens at once” should not be taken as a literal concept, but rather as a description of the capacity to comprehend on larger scales. For instance, when we said that all Roles within an Entity are “cast at once,” we did not mean this literally, but more in the same way that one might say that in the course of a day of baking, the chocolate chip cookies were all baked at once, and the ginger snaps were baked at once, etc. Even on the scale of Tao there is order, and that order has a progression, regardless of how massive the scale of comprehension. Time is simply a means for creating “space” within denser dimensions to allow for comprehension of progression.

    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.

    This material was obtained by Geraldine in a session on May 6, 2013. MEntity: Because the planet already has two established species of Sentience well into Soul Ages, Gorillas must contend with a vacuum-like effect that prompts acceleration. There is little room on the planet for Infant Soul lifetimes, and soon enough for even Baby Soul lifetimes, so they may be experienced within a drastically different context from what a struggling new Sentient species might do its own. The Design that is Human Sentience is actually fairly "late in the game," and has evolved extremely rapidly for the same reasons. The average Soul Age of the entire Universe is Mature. It has been moving through Infant, Baby, Young, and now into the very beginning Levels of Mature for nearly 14 billion years. This vacuum effect, if you will, could be most easily understood with a simplified scenario: Imagine the differences between a village that is populated entirely by children versus a village where there are adults in place when the children arrive.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2009] [Question] I would like to hear you discuss more about choice. From my understanding, every personality has the ability to choose. However, incarnations are planned out ahead of time as well as parents, agreements, TC’s, etc. What I would like to know is what would happen if a baby were to be born when no Essence planned that life out? Is that something that is possible if personality does indeed have free will and choice? Would that baby be born without a soul/Essence? What would that life be like? Can humans really act outside of Essence’s influence, has it ever been done, and when? [Michael Entity] In all cases of Incarnation, the first seven years of a life are lived “without a soul,” so to speak. By this we mean that the body and Personality are most vulnerable to the choices of others who are fully incarnated and the Essence of that Personality does more in that period of time to help shape the path of the life than at any other time, for most fragments. It takes up to 7 years for the Personality to fully resonate and embrace the Essence, if at all. It could be said another way that it takes up to seven years for the soul to “move in” to the body, though we would not mean that literally. With this 7 year process in mind, it may be more easily understood that a body born despite an Essence’s choice to “back out” is then “up for grabs” for any other Essence, and bodies are often grabbed up when they are available like this, much in the same way that one might scramble to catch the next bus or plane. However, while it does happen, it is extremely rare that any Body or Personality would be born without the Essence fully committed. That kind of birth happens most often during the Infant Soul Cycle, but when it does happen, the Body dies within a relatively short time of birth if no Essence grabs it up. It is never the case that an Adult Personality or Body is conscious without an Essence. [Question] so, personality is doing the gathering at that stage? [Michael Entity] During the first 7 years of life, the Personality is most passive in its gathering of experiences, and Essence is most powerful, though this will vary from Personality to Personality, of course. [Comment] so it seems there are some “limits” to choice in a manner of speaking [Michael Entity] The key here is understanding that Choice exists on all levels, and each level has its perimeters. Essence’s level of choice is vast and encompassing of Personality’s level of choice. Personality’s level of choice is limited by the contexts, tools, and mobility of the lifetime, but always overrides Essence’s choices while Physical. When we are quoted as saying “All Is Choice,” it is implicit that we spoke of the various levels of “you” that is “all.” In addition to that, it is implicit that CHOICE does not automatically mean CREATION or Cause. It can also mean RESPONSE. Not all impact in your life will be of your choice, but what you choose to do with that impact will be your choice. Eventually the experience of Essence and Personality are blurred into each other and the life is a co-creative process that has no sense of division.

    [Excerpt from OMW: Validating your Profile] [Diane_H] I would like more clarity on Server casting. How I use it, etc. You previously mentioned I mainly serve myself, which I agree with. But most of my days I act more Scholarly. [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. To help with Validation of any Role or Casting Position, it can help to look at other qualities that describe that Axis. In the case of the Server, you would want to look at the fact that this is an Ordinal Casting, first. It is Ordinal/Inspirational, next. This means that on a day-to-day basis, you may find that you naturally gravitate toward one-on-one scenarios, rather than group scenarios, and because you are Inspirationally-Cast, it would mean these one-on-one scenarios may require some sort of Meaning for them to be at all. [Diane_H] That's true, I hadn't thought about the Inspirational aspect. [MEntity] If something of Meaning can be brought to the exchange, then it may be more comfortable or pursued, but meaningless or random social or intimate contact is usually not of interest to the day-to-day functioning. The Priest seeks to bring Meaning to the masses, or a path to the creation of Meaning, whereas the Server seeks to bringing Meaning to the individual, or at least a path to the creation of that Meaning. [Diane_H] That really fits. [MEntity] If Server Casting is valid for you, it may show up as your being an important contact person for an important handful of fragments over time as you connect them to Meaning. Looking further, it might show up as a Re-evaluation in your pursuit of your Goal, Reserved in your Relationships, Stoic in your Perceptions, and even Self-deprecating, in general, in your day-to-day functioning. Re-evaluation of your Goal would show up as your constantly ebbing and flowing, halting and launching, always questioning the progress of your pursuit of your actual Goal in terms of the Overleaf, but also in terms of general goals, such as career. [Diane_H] Wow, that's a bull's-eye [MEntity] Reservation in your Relationships would mean always monitoring yourself, sometimes with Restraint, and sometimes with Inhibition, as you build yourself up in contexts of intimacy and resonance. The Stoicism in Perceptions might show up as your always keeping cool, or appearing cool, unfazed, no matter what you see, or how something is perceived, sometimes through Tranquility, and sometimes through Resignation. Though you will have your spectrum of Overleaves that describe you in much more detail, your Casting Position is like a packaged form of that entire Axis, and it will permeate the other Overleaves in some way.

    [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: January 2001] WARNING FROM TROY: whackadoodle channeling ahead… [mamajo] when were the great pyramid and the two following it built, if not at the same time in our timeline? I think he is referring to the fact that they might have been built by our future selves back in the past with the aid of extraterrestrial beings. [Michael_Entity] Yes, what you consider your “past” in several instances was created from your “futures.” In the case of some of the Pyramids, these “were” created as a means for transportation by combined concepts of humans and “aliens” in your future. In “your” timeline, they are now a part of your past, but they are a part of your past because of a timeline that still links those structures to your future. There are several instances in your future where there is the building of practical forms of transportation between planets, the Pyramids being only one instance. Within 200 years of your future, the Pyramids are built into your past, as well as what is called Stonehenge. Much of what cannot be explained in terms of these structures being built is due to tools used from that time frame’s future. The building of these structures is not a major global event in its occurrence in the future, by the way, and these structures are only more obvious and mysterious in your “past.” When it “became” relevant to create these structures from your future, the methods and implementation for time travel “were” done discreetly. The initiation of the entire sequence that leads to the building of these structures has already occurred in your current past, during what was called the “harmonic convergence” in the late 80’s. In fact, the entire initiation of what has come to be called the “new age” is, in effect, directly linked in time to the initial event [in the future] surrounding the plans for the pyramids and Stonehenge. This is because the ideals and ideas that are eventually used were born of that time frame in the 1980s and are being built upon, especially from those who have concluded these structures could not have been born of what is known of the past. If your timeline parallel continues along a momentum that includes the need for the creation of the Pyramids and Stonehenge, then that timeline would experience a destruction of structures, hence leading to a “time loop” necessity for re-creating them to “try again.” It is hoped that the creation and proper implementation of these structures has secured a timeline that will allow them to simply remain a part of your mysterious history. The Great Pyramid as it sits in your current timeline helps to reduce the possibilities for catastrophic planetary quakes that, in the future, were found to have been a result of micro-cumulations that were found to have been able to be dampened and directed from that area of the planet if it had been caught in “in the past.” The Pyramid has a micro-effect, not only on the motion of the Earth, but on the movement of Time around the Earth. Most global land stability in your timeline in history can be attributed to the effects of the Pyramids that “were” built by going “back” to that most pivotal point in “the past.” Though extraterrestrial assistance is a part of this process, both those humans from “the future” and the species originating off-planet are experienced by the people of the past geographical era and time frame as “gods” and or “aliens.” Stonehenge and Easter Island are other power points upon the planet that benefited from large structures that were built as part of a kind of magnetic stabilizing network. The “charge” of these structures that was more obvious in the past has since worn off to a great extent, but the effects remain and can be measured. The bulk of land mass has been stabilized, but what has “yet” to be accomplished is a stabilizing force that carries over into the 22nd Century. The 21st Century in most parallel timelines with and without the stabilizing structures is still hit quite hard by climate and earth changes, but “so far” only those without the stabilizing structures have been met with near-extinction. Even in those timelines with the stabilizing structures placed in the past, the magnetic network falls short of sustaining through the final few “bumps in the road” manifested in the 21st Century, though they are tremendously minimized. In the timelines without these structures, it is in the beginning of the 23rd Century that the technology is available for affecting timelines. It “was” hoped that in the timelines where the structures helped minimize the catastrophes, the technology would become readily available in time for renovating and bringing “back to life” many of these stabilizing structures to help extend stability through the worst parts of the 21st Century, allowing for exponential growth that was not possible for another century in the timelines recovering from catastrophes. Though alien contact is quite usual for most humans in the late 22nd Century, it is only the simple genius of the Pyramid structures as gateways that allow for the combined forces of on- and off-planet species to link from future to past, and to “go back” and help secure a more stable planet and timeline. So far, it could be said by us to be the greatest experiment we have ever studied of any sentient species we know of. We realize the nature of this scenario is fantastical, but there is more involved with your universe than is presently considered, except by some older souls.

    [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: June 2001] [Leela] My question relates to something that happened a little while ago. I am curious about the press conference called by high-level NASA and other government officials about extraterrestrial contact. How much of this was accurate, and will we see any real results of this? [Michael_Entity] The conference was valid and addressed many issues known and unknown to the participants previous to the exchange. There are some “serious” issues to be dealt with within the “higher governments” and NASA as you prepare for eventual revelations. Contact with off-planet species has been known to many in positions of “power” for over 50 years. There are fewer and fewer ways to “protect” the public, especially with the advent of faster and wider means of communication and research. Your world is almost as “small” as it will ever be, so these issues must be addressed if there is going to be any sense of “control” by those in positions of knowledge. You will see results of this conference, with the release of carefully regulated pieces of information, first with allusions, then with revelations. We, ourselves, have been “waiting” for a formal announcement of revelation for quite some time, as we have seen many fragments “pushing” to make it possible. Your world is almost ready to believe.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: March 2009] [Question] what role will our space brother/sister play in the NOW; and how do you feel about NESARA? [Michael Entity] Currently, there are various ways in which non-human, off-planet species interact with your species. The two most direct interactions are between those species that have your well-being as a priority and are seeking to make the case for your sentience so [it] can be included in the galactic consciousness, or awareness of other, off-planet species. A percentage of the Crop Circles (a kind of Rorschach Test) are one way of helping to prove your sentience and intelligence, and the telepathic species (known in cryptozoology as “bigfoot” or “yeti”) most directly responsible for your safe movement to Earth are regularly checking in on your development. Beyond this, the only other off-planet species interacting with Earth are “tourists.” The concept of “Ashtar” is one person's interpretation of the very real galactic security that is in place that is both to help your species and to protect other species from you, or other unruly species. We see “NESARA” as a product of Mature thinking, if we are seeing it clearly, and though it is highly resisted at this point, we do see a refinement and implementation of some variation of this being a natural part of societal evolution for the most part at some point.

    [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 2008] [Question] would entity 7, cadre one…be from the Pleiades then? [Michael Entity] Many from your Cadre (and Energy Ring) are familiar with the various species that could be considered a part of the “Pleiades,” but this was not a home for you. Most who began off-planet would call the system related to “Sirius” to be home, but it would not surprise us if there are connections drawn to Cassiopeia and Pleiades, as these were strongly related to your reasons for moving to Earth in the first place. The “Pleiadians” would have preferred for your species to have simply been destroyed and your transport to a safe planet “out of the way” was the only alternative to your extinction. Pleiadians now, bitterly, work on repairing the Karma incurred from that interference. Many from Cassiopeia who were part of what would be akin to an animal rights network were responsible for protecting you and transporting you, though we will add here that several other systems were involved in that process. The network that saved your species is represented by several minorities across several systems and species, but Pleiadians were a primary force of interruption to your development within your native star system. Those who are strongly drawn to those labeled as “Pleiadians” are part of the healing between the species and probably find this information to be surprising, as the draw of the Karmic Ribbons are inherently laced with fascination and intrigue. [Question] when you say, species, do you mean, “humanoid?” [Michael Entity] Most are humanoid, yes. Many are not. The most familiar to you would be those labeled as “bigfoot” (the primary race responsible for saving your species) and, of course, the large-headed, small-bodied, big-eyed typical “alien” that ranges from terrifying to fascinating, all of which would be humanoid.

    [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 Ask Michael: January 2015] Janet: Michael, last year at this time you gave us a list of the 7 elements that prompted learning in the year of the Priest, in the form of questions to ask ourselves. Can you provide the 7 elements that prompt our learning in this Scholar year? MEntity: What efforts did you make to validate your theories through experiences? Were you willing to be wrong as a way to learn? Are you telling the truth, or is your reality telling the truth? (if they are in conflict). (Are you contributing to the creation of your life, or do you feel you are the created result of your life.) Are you participating in life, or presuming you are a separate thing from your life? What conditions have you placed on receiving and giving Love in your life? Is your past a "guidepost" or have you turned it into a "hitchpost?" What do you find yourself distracted with in trying to get others to learn (about you, about themselves, about life)?

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (2 of 3)] [nemo999] Regarding symbols, does essence have a natural language instead of words, I am thinking of thoughts, feelings, pictures instead of English or Chinese for example? [Michael_Entity] The Language of Essence is transparent, so to speak. It is relative to the listener. Essence cannot communicate any other way. On the Astral, it is understood that you will never “see” the true Essence you are communicating to, unless you resonate. Otherwise, every Essence sees its version of other Essences that makes the most sense of the energy that is “other”. Therefore, while physical, Essence will appear, communicate, behave, in whatever fashion the personality imposes or chooses. This is why we suggest being conscious of what you feel is symbolic of Essence. This will heighten your conscious connection. The idea of Power Animals is a valid means to achieve this. Choosing a number that then shows up occasionally on clocks, receipts, etc. This is a valid reminder and connection to Essence. There are a multitude of ways and you may create many paths for these. And then there will finally be the symbolic realization that you can simply BE your Essence, meaning, after you have begun building a foundation of trust and validity as to what your Essence is, you may then simply ACT as Essence.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks - Open Floor - February 2000] [MaryBV] I am under the impression that a person’s aura fluctuates and changes quite a bit. Do the roles in essence have certain signature colors? Does your frequency have any determination in the color of the aura? [Michael_Entity] Yes, you are correct. Each Role can be said to resonate with the colors commonly attributed to the Chakras. It takes some practice to specifically “see” that level, but it can be done. Frequency creates the “hue” of that color. We remind you that as you are Physical, it is impossible to “see” another’s Aura without the colors of your own being used as a filter. If you hold a red film up to yellow, you will get a completely different color than if you held up a blue filter to yellow. Keeping that in mind, you may have to calibrate or adjust your perceptions so they can be interpreted properly.

    [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 it's 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? MEntity: 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) MEntity: 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. We are working with Troy in creating two new ways of determining your own basic profiles: a self-test, and a step-by-step process of elimination method. We believe this will help many of our students. We never sought to have any student dependent on our channels, so this is an important evolution to our sharing of the teachings. We believe we have given you at least some “food for thought” until then.

    Excerpt from: March 2010 Michael Speaks "The Roles for Mature and Old Souls" Channel: Troy Tolley ------- OLD SCHOLAR The Old Scholar has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING EXPERIENCE and BEING INTIMATE. During the Mature Age, the reconciliation between Experience and Intimacy is a long, often painful, road for the Scholar. Much of what is considered necessary by the Scholar for Experience is to have as "clean" an experience as possible, which often means leaving others out of the inner world that processes these experiences. QUESTION: Could you define intimacy in the sense of your meaning? Intimacy here is meant as any form of Resonance, from sharing common ground to sex. The key being that it is INCLUSIVE, in that what is shared is not only mutual, but experienced as mutual. More than any other Role, the Scholar struggles with issues of Intimacy, of feeling connected to others, of finding common ground, and of feeling embraced. The Old Scholar has realized that Experience and Intimacy are not mutually-exclusive, but Intimacy has been put off for so long for the sake of experiments, exploration, etc. that the world of Intimacy as an Old Soul is entirely new for the most part. Because the nature of the Scholar is to observe objectively, then this search for Intimacy may often be approached from the angle of provision, in that it IF it exists, then it must be something provided for the Scholar, and not something he or she must work to generate from the self. Intimacy is such an amorphous concept to the Scholar that in the Old Soul Age, it will either feign intimacy as a means to have any kind of human contact at all, often leaving it to others to sort out the details, or to nurture that intimacy, or it will finally realize that he or she IS the source of intimacy, and begin to develop this from "the inside, out." The issue for the Scholar is often that if it is not found externally, then it is not a valid Experience, and therefore is not to be trusted. Ironically, anything that is already deemed as so amorphous that it cannot be trusted when generated within, will also be deemed suspicious when generated from others. Therefore, the key for the Old Scholar in his or her embrace of Being Intimate is to begin comprehending TRUST. Trust is a mix of anticipated results and past experiences. It is not blind, and therefore it can be used by the Scholar. When the Old Scholar begins to recognize his or her embrace of himself, he or she can then begin to embrace others. If the embrace of others is attempted before the embrace of self, then there will always be an equation that returns the Scholar back to the beginning. They are highly mathematical that way. Trust comes in as the gathering of experience grows to show the Scholar that he or she will not die because he or she reached out, and that one is not alone just because one might actually like oneself. In short, the validity of Being for the Scholar cannot be proven through others, but the validity of others can be proven through the embrace of Being.

    [Excerpt from 5/22/2016 by Juni] [Juni] How do I keep my Venusian Nature Body Type healthy? [MEntity] For Venusian Nature, it would be helpful to keep in mind that you require affection. Venusians thrive on touch. The Venusian NEEDS to touch and be touched, to exchange affection, to pet, to caress. If this is not available in exchange with a Human or Non-Human companion, then it is still as important to provide this for the self. Touch yourself in loving ways. Give pleasures to the body in ways that remind it that it is more than just a vehicle. [Juni] So kind of like the Sage's need for affection amplified? [MEntity] Yes. A Sage in a Venus Body Type is one of the most approachable and magnetic of combinations, or one of the most repellent if the Personality is lascivious.

[MEntity] The Oversoul of this Entity has come to be FINGAL, or FINN, and refers to a recent Scholar's lifetime from a fairly recent 18th Century in which many fragments from the Entity helped that Scholar to bring to publication many of their stories from across lifetimes. These are known as Ossian, and if members of Entity 3 read the works, there may be memories there. This was an experimental lifetime that was quite exciting to consider for an Entity to collaborate in its stories carried forward through word of mouth and eventually collected in one place. It is considered one of the more magical and fun experiences that this Entity has had as a cohesive consciousness before any necessity for that cohesion.

    Throughout all of the lifetimes, heartaches, pleasures, fears, and pains, you are never actually alone. There are groups of souls connected to you on very intimate and deep levels. Your Essence develops varying levels of depth with other Essences as you would as a Personality within a lifetime.Though the dynamics of how Essences are all organized and connected can get very detailed and mathematical, we will stick with just a few introductory terms here.The first terms that will become familiar to you are CADRE and ENTITY.ENTITY: a family of approximately 1000 Essences who share a theme of consciousness. Think of an Entity as a busload of souls who come with you to Earth, and everyone on that bus is your Entity Mate.CADRE (pronounced either KAH-druh or KAD-dree): a group of 7 Entities (or 7 "bus loads"). Entities are organized into groups of 7 acting as "extended family", so to speak. Your Entity, along with these 6 other Entities, makes for a large family of souls sharing a very intimate and specific group consciousness. Everyone in a specific Cadre is called your "Cadre Mate".Why are souls organized into these groups? Because groups of souls are interested in certain themes and adventures, and before you ever start your journey from Tao, you find other souls of similar interests. Many of these souls are souls you have "known" a long long time and some are totally "new" to you, but the common thread will be in your specific themes of interest. An Entity will share a more specific theme among all of its members while a Cadre will have each Entity exploring aspects of an even larger theme. More importantly, the reason you choose these "families of consciousness" before you begin your journey is so that no matter where you incarnate in a lifetime, you will always be able to find at least one or two familiar souls with which you can find comfort and growth.There is a larger structure that contains the Cadre and Entity and that is called your ENERGY RING. This is the largest group you should be concerned with at this time. An Energy Ring is a Group of 12 Cadres.Here is how it all connects: 1 Energy Ring = 12 Cadres 1 Cadre = 7 Entities 1 Entity = approximately 1000 EssencesOf course, there are millions and millions of people in the world, so there are also thousands and thousands and thousands of Energy Rings, Cadres, and Entities. You will interact with all kinds of souls and people from all kinds of Cadres and Entities, but most of your important and moving experiences are shared with Entity members and Cadre Members. In addition, you have your own larger Energy Ring to work with! This gives you at least a total of about 84,000 Essences (12 Cadres, 12 X 7000 Essences) to work with over all of your lifetimes and that's if you chose to only work within your own Energy Ring!The Intimate ConnectionsThere are a few Essences that you work with on world projects and some you work with on specific internal growth. To help with these intense and amazing experiences across so many lifetimes, it takes commitment and dedication from another Essence.There are at least two primary Essence relationships that stand out. Any relationship can be profound and intense, but these are the technical terms for those Essences who have chosen to get to know you "inside and out" and to always seek to push you beyond your limitations.They are your ESSENCE TWIN and TASK COMPANIONS.The ESSENCE TWIN is the one Essence guaranteed to be committed to going through EVERYTHING with you, including all the worst and best experiences. This is not the romantic "soul mate" that the "New Age" and romance novels like to promote; instead this Essence relationship can be described simply as "intense". This is because this relationship does not allow for either individual to "hide" from himself, or to avoid the internal issues that block growth. The relationship with your Essence Twin (ET) can be intensely loving or intensely hateful, but there is rarely neutrality between yourself and that Essence, particularly within a physical lifetime where your Personalities are "between you". You each reflect in each other everything you love and hate about yourself. This "mirroring" ignites growth and encourages a self-awareness because you are so profoundly confronted with yourself, your fears, and your desires.Most Essences spend about 60% to 70% of their lives incarnated with their Essence Twin in some way. Otherwise, if only one of you is incarnated, the other might act as a Spirit Guide.Essence Twins are NEVER from the same Entity.The 7th Entity of a Cadre will usually find its Essence Twins in the 7th Entity of another Cadre within their Energy Ring.Essence Twins are the links that reunite a Cadre, and the 7th Entities are what reunite the Energy Ring (12 Cadres).Around 5% of all Essences choose NOT to even have an Essence Twin! See Surrogates and Traveling Companions, below for how this is accommodated.TASK COMPANIONS are Essences committed to working on external, worldly projects and experiences with you. Your Essence always starts your incarnational cycle with at least one Task Companion, but you also acquire as many as five as you continue to incarnate. You acquire more Task Companions because you "meet" and learn that there are others who are excellent work partners for you, too.Task Companions are always from the same Entity. This is because Task Companions are those Fragments we work with as a means to accomplish things in the external world, to manifest ourselves in some specific way on the Physical Plane. If two Fragments share the exact same Casting, and therefore approaching life from a very similar angle, there would be no balance to the approach of accomplishment. Because your Casting Position affects how you live your daily life, it is vitally linked to how you also manifest your accomplishments when working with a Task Companion. Task Companions will always be one Ordinal and one Cardinal in Casting. Having the different Casting is a complementary union, to help cover both the focused aspects of life and the broader aspects of life.The relationships between Task Companions are what reunite an Entity.TRAVELING COMPANIONSTraveling Companions are those Essences who reside in the EXACT same position as your own position within their own Entity! In other words, if you are the 127th Essence within your Entity, then all of the fragments who are in the 127th position within the other 6 Entities are your Traveling Companions. One of those 6 Essences is actually your Essence Twin, and the deep bond among all of you is very similar to the Essence Twin bond. In fact, it can be hard to differentiate a Traveling Companion from the Traveling Companion who is your Essence Twin. Those fragments without an Essence Twin will still have the Traveling Companions, which are quite similar in effect within the lifetime.CADENCE MATESAnd finally, although there are many many connections that Michael will explain, another good one to know is what are called your Cadence Mates. These are the other 6 Essences that are directly, intimately linked to you WITHIN your entity. This is the smallest named grouping within the Michael Teachings. A Cadence of Essences is ALL the same Role. If you think of an Entity as a Bus, then these are the other 6 Essences that are sitting in the same row as you!Though you will learn many more details about these terms as you study the Teachings, these are good ones with which to start. Be careful not to think that the love of your life is your Essence Twin or that your business partner is your Task Companion. It's not that simple, unfortunately, at least not at first. All kinds of strong relationships get created over time and your Essence Twin and Task Companions are just a few of many.

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

    [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.

    (this article needs some updating, but is an okay start) BODY TYPES Part One: Foundation “Body Types” are descriptions of the various aspects of the Physical Body as the body extends from astronomical and astrological influences used in its creation and sustenance. There are 7 basic Body Types: Lunar/Saturnine Mercurial/Jovial Martial/Venusian Solar The Body Types, as paired above, are also paired across the 4 Axes just like the rest of the Overleaves System. Each Role resonates well with their corresponding Body Type, in general: Server 1 – Priest 6 Artisan 2 – Sage 5 Warrior 3 – King 7 Scholar 4 There are 5 additional Body Types used for very specific lifetimes, which we will cover later. Our Body Types are the closest to our Essence’s “idea” of who we are in a lifetime than even our Personality and Overleaves. Bodies are the Karma for the Essence. Karma exists on several levels and most Karma is the result of being Physical and having a Personality, but the Essence has it’s own larger spectrum of Karma and Self-karma. This is played out through the body that the Essence is profoundly linked to for a lifetime, as well as the Chief Feature. Karma is defined by Michael as “intensity” or “imbalance”, which is what promotes the continuation of a Universe and growth. Karma is mostly created through the interference of choice, either in the Self or in Others. When Karma is created with Self, this becomes the larger Karmic journey of Essence. That is why Chief Feature and the Body are so fused and two of the greatest “strengths” behind False Personality. Interfering with our own choices may sound odd, but it’s easy to see that when we make choices against what we truly want to do, we are setting up this wonderful game of imbalance and intensity (Karma). One of the first things an Essence learns to do, even before learning how to choose Overleaves appropriately, is to create Bodies. Each Body Type is “electrically” charged in a particular way in categories of “Positive – Negative” and “Passive – Active”. As you may have guessed, other Overleaves will either be in harmony with, or abrade with, the Body Type. Positive and Negative are almost literal in regard to Body Types: Positive Body Types come with inherent emphasis on a more optimistic, broader emphasis on life, focusing on expanding and building, growing, and embracing. Negative Body Types come with inherent emphasis on restlessness, dissatisfaction, narrow-focused and generally seeing the flaws and failures of life. Active and Passive are also literal in regard to Body Types: Active Bodies are in some way preoccupied with DOING and dealing with the external world, while Passive Bodies are preoccupied with BEING and exploring the internal world. The combination of Active, Passive, Positive, and Negative, are all in varying degrees throughout the Body Types. The most Passive-Negative Body Type being the Lunar, while the most Active-Positive Body Type is Saturnine. Solar, which is outside of the progression, is considered both Active and Positive. Lunar – Passive/Negative Saturnine – Active/Positive Mercurial – Active/Negative Jovial – Passive/Positive Martial – Active/Negative Venusian – Passive/Positive Solar – Active/Positive CREATING THE BODY There are three considerations the Essence makes when creating a Body: 1. The primary physical appearance of the body (APPEARANCE) 2. The primary psychological stance of the body (NATURE) 3. The primary glandular resource of the body (HEALTH) Most bodies are comprised of two to three planetary influences, though there can be more or less. It is not uncommon to have the same planetary influences for two of the aspects. Keep in mind that all three aspects are intertwined and overlap. When you receive your Body Type, you will have a Primary Body Type. That would be the influence with the highest percentage of the two or three. Depending on your Karma, Agreements, life plans, etc. you will have your Primary Body Type rooted in one of the three aspects. For instance, you might have a 65% Venusian Primary Body Type, but it is not obvious in Appearance, but definite in your Nature, or your Health. A great deal of information about the Body Type of an individual can be found in the Astrological Chart of the CONCEPTION of the body, in the Mid Heaven. IMPORTANT NOTES: I will apologize in advance for not having completed my dialogue with Michael about the HEALTH aspect. Much of the information I have in this treatment of Body Types is based on accumulated information, but not necessarily from Michael. I’d also like to bring to your attention that I do not have the Body Types correlating to the Roles in the same way that most have them. If you care to bring to the discussion your arguments for or against this, that would be wonderful! I am very open, but I find the common correlation to be less relative to the Roles. THE 3 ASPECTS APPEARANCE The primary physical appearance is just that, how you take up space and appear in the physical world. Physical Body Type can be seen in one or more combinations of the SHAPE, SKIN, HAIR, and/or EYES. Here are some very simplistic physical keys for each planetary influence: LUNAR shape: rounded and fleshy skin: spongy, soft, very pale eyes: luminous, clear, light blue or gray hair: thin, light, straggly SATURNINE shape: tall and lean skin: rough, dry, maybe yellowed eyes: deep and dark hair: thick, dark, straight MERCURIAL shape: small, compact, trim skin: smooth, transparent, olive eyes: dark, restless, sharp hair: thick, black (or very dark), full JOVIAL shape: large, solid, fleshy skin: smooth, “healthy” pink eyes: expressive, clear, betraying hair: abundant, fine, brown to chestnut MARTIAL shape: strong, muscular, erect skin: thick, freckled, red eyes: large, bold, bright, maybe bloodshot hair: stiff, red, sometimes curly VENUSIAN: shape: voluptuous, shapely, curvy skin: dark, fine, velvety eyes: almond-shape, sympathetic, tender, dark hair: full, wavy, brown SOLAR shape: light, lean, fit, androgynous skin: clear, fine, pure eyes: sparkly, bright, large hair: thick, wavy, dark, silky NATURE The primary psychological stance of the body could be called your “body conscience”. Think of the psychological stance as the basic, defaulted collective consciousness of the cells that contribute to your processing of life. Here are some very simple descriptions of the psychological stances: Lunar: internally emotional; aloof, pessimistic, secretive, wary, good for lifetimes dealing with one on one Inspirational contact (relates to Server/1) Saturnine: perfectionist, domineering, manipulative, judicial; good for lifetimes dealing with Inspirational issues for groups (relates to Priest/6) Mercurial: lively, deceitful, insecure, opinionated, artistic, expressive; good for lifetimes dealing with expression one on one (relates to Artisan/2) Jovial: Center-of-attention, jolly, entertaining, expressive, secretly-shy, indulgent; good for lifetimes dealing with being in a central position of expression for others (relates to Sage/5) Martial: fiery, high-energy, angry, irrational, dedicated, impulsive; good for lifetimes dealing with actions affecting people one on one (relates to Warrior/3) Venusian: sensual, warm, charismatic, no self-esteem, inviting; good for lifetimes dealing with being open, approachable, and accessible to larger groups (relates to King/7) Solar: bright, spirited, airy, electric, childish, naïve; good for lifetimes needing to be in the center of everything. (relates to Scholar/4) HEALTH The primary glandular resource could be called its primary source of regulation of experiences, or the basic health of the body. It is also the primary potential for what will be used as a catalyst for “natural” death. Here are correlations of glands to Body Type: LUNAR: Pancreas (Islands of Langerhans); deals with the process of fuel and energy consumption/production in the body; if imbalanced, sugar-related problems SATURNINE: anterior pituitary; a primary, regulating stimulant for many of the other glands; if imbalanced, over- or undergrowth of body, and/or sexual dysfunction MERCURIAL: thyroid; deals with the center of communicating what regulates our bodies creating itself; if imbalanced, over-anxiousness, or lethargy JOVIAL: posterior pituitary; maintains the entire body’s homeostasis; if imbalanced, loss of fluid maintenance and basic body functions MARTIAL: adrenals; a primary support for the system that enables strengthening and endurance, and amplification of body energy (emotion); if imbalanced, distorted pigmentation of skin, dwindling of body (Addison’s disease), or muscle-shakes, bruising (Cushing’s disease), distortion of genitalia VENUSIAN: parathyroid; deals with the regulation and processing of Calcium in the body which supplies the information needed for muscle movement and bone strength; if imbalanced, spasms, extreme nervousness, softening and deforming of bones. SOLAR: thymus; produces and maintains immunity; if imbalanced, open to all disease FINAL NOTE: In addition to the 7 basic Body Types, there are three known "eccentric" Body Types that an Essence can use for some of the more extraordinary lives. They are Plutonian, Neptunian, and Uranian. They are rare and specific. Plutonian is for lifetimes of great impact on a massive scale and is usually marked by unearthly features, with the hair or head being exceptionally striking. Neptunian is used for lifetimes of rare, exceptional psychic abilities, and is marked by the eyes in some striking way (even blindness). Uranian is for lifetimes of extreme eccentricity and can be seen in deformities, oddities of the body, and "freaks". Beyond these ten, there are two more obscure, but relevant planetary effects. More on these later…

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2009] [Question] Hello, Michael. 1)Who was this mysterious Mikao Usui who created the modern Reiki System? 2)What were his overleaves? 3) From your perspective, what is this REIKI or SPIRITUAL ENERGY that practitioners channel…4) what are the factors that have made this practice so popular around the world? [Michael Entity] For purposes of this format of exchange, we will share a brief response to each of the questions. The fragment known as Mikao appears to be a Warrior-cast Priest who recognized the validity of subtle energies and their capacity for being harnessed and directed. The energy that is harnessed and directed is not unique to the practice called “Reiki,” but that system does help bring tangible tools to the process of using the energy. The same energy could be said to be shared from the exchange of laughter, awe, and happiness or pleasure. The modern system referred to as “Reiki” has become highly political and hierarchical in many circles, but we see that this has begun to deconstruct and return to its roots in many ways. Both the political structure and this deconstruction have their flaws. The political structure is a false hierarchy of learning that can bring about false healers who have gained credibility by simply paying enough money to buy a label. The deconstructing of this political structure requires little more than reading a book and can bring about delusional exchanges of “healing” that are little more than nice thoughts. Knowing the extremes of that spectrum, we would say that the only valid method for developing the strengths capable for use of energy in this way would be through practice, feedback, and tangible evidence of effect. The energy that is used is the basic “life force” of your universe. This life force could be understood through the analogy of a computer screen that allows for a cursor to move through the pixels and light, showing up as itself wherever it is, but literally connected entirely to everything on that screen. “Reiki” then could be said to be that affect that allows for the repair of a pixel, or pixels, bringing light back, so to speak, to areas of the screen that have dimmed or have gone out. In the same way that a piano can be played by any of you, so can Reiki (or energetic healing) be practiced. However, to continue the analogy, in the same way that one can simply peck at the keys, or pound on the keys to make noise, so too can some “healers” generate energy that has no effect, or only brings irritation. And in the same way that one can learn to play a piano beautifully on one’s own, through an instructor, or through a hierarchical fee plan, so can healing be learned. The piano and the noise it generates is up to the player, and how that player learns to play is up to the player. It just so happens that “Reiki” has come to be a recognizable system, and for that matter can lend itself as a strong platform for the work that a healer might wish to do. No direct harm can come from false healers, but irritation, and distraction from legitimate care, can certainly have effects.

    [Originally posted on January 4, 2013 in a forum discussion on nTLE] Jana: So a Devic energy has a Spark but not Essence? And same goes for a non-sentient Animal? Is this a "different kind" of Spark? Troy: A flower, an atom, a dog, all act as a kind of "hive" for collections of consciousness that could be considered the equivalent of collections of sparks or essences, but without any individuation. It might be easier to just think of any form of non-sentience as having some degree of CONSCIOUSNESS that could evolve into Sentience (individual self-awareness). The more complex the organism, the more individualized the consciousness. A mountain range may have a multitude of Designs exploring it, and a school of fish may be a Cadre, and a dog may only host an entity, while non-sentient, higher primates might have a Cadence. Until the Intellectual Center of that organism is developed enough so that it tips over into having the capacity for choice in overriding of the body's hardwiring, it is a "hive soul," or a host for different degrees of consciousness and collections of consciousness. But in the end, they are all variations on the "spark." ### Jana posted a copy of the original discussion and so the contents of this article may be discussed in her blog entry.

    [Originally posted 4th Jan 2013 in a forum discussion on nTLE:] Jana: Please correct me if I am wrong: Before a Design(?) decides to embark on a grand cycle on a planet, they explore it, for example as devic energies and/or as hive soul species. Troy: A Design does explore a planet and its "Kingdoms" before committing to a Grand Cycle, and usually explores several planets before choosing one.

    [Originally posted 4th Jan 2013 in a forum discussion on nTLE:] Jana: What remains between grand cycles is called "Spark". I believe it was said that this is not a term identical to the term "Essence". Essence, compared to Spark, has Role, Casting - anything else? Troy: "Spark" is an easier way to differentiate Essence Role from Essence, but Essence and Spark are basically the same. The Spark IS Essence, and Essence takes on a Role. Spark is just easier to use because "Essence" can mean so many different contexts.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: April 2002] [MaryBV] I have the burning desire to hear what the average day was for someone who lived in Atlantis during its zenith. What sort of technology was available at that time? [M_Entity] To describe an average day for any time period would be quite arbitrary, as each day would be quite different for so many fragments, but we will comment within reason. The civilization currently on your planet most like Atlantis at the time could be said to be some parts of Greece and Italy, as a combination of ancient and modern elements combine strangely and beautifully. Atlantis was primarily Early Young Soul, with a great deal of Baby Soul influences throughout the culture and expectations of behavior. This then, is quite similar to many societies familiar to you, especially the United States of America. An “average day” then consisted of participating in your very ritualistic and high profile spirituality. Spiritual practices were considered a means of identifying yourself and your sense of place in the community. Wealth was not as divided as is currently on your planet, but there were still those who had more than others, creating Classes of people. Inherent in the Baby and Young, of course, requires that division. As electricity could be said to be your theme of accepted and permeating technology currently, quartz generators would have been the equivalent in Atlantis. Both are similar in effect when used, but the uses of their ideas of quartz generators were far less stable and impractical at the time. Their use of quartz generators would be the equivalent of your Nuclear Energy currently. Both are profound sources of energy with eventual disastrous effects. [MaryBV] Large crystals on top of buildings? [M_Entity] And yes, there were large crystal panels within the architecture of that time. The use of Crystals in Atlantis was far less mystical than the New Age has described. Crystals as sources of energy are used in your own current technologies as similarly as Atlantis. We will note that what you call “dinosaurs” did still exist alongside humans of the time, though this may not coincide with your current interpretation of historical data. Great walls were built as a means to protect Atlantis from these creatures. These creatures were not hostile, anymore than a bear or tiger might be, but the dangers were there. There was a strong postal system and library system at the time, though the libraries of the time consisted of many contributors. By this we mean that individual households listed themselves as providers of certain material and this promoted a great deal of interaction among the Atlantean. Continuing with this subject will be more appropriate as a specific topic, but we share a bit of our perceptions from that time to contribute to your exploration.

    [Excerpt from TT (POF): 2011-05-01] [Geraldine] I’m interested in Gobekli Tepe, a pre-neolithic site found in Turkey and currently dated at about 11,000 BCE. It is far more refined in workmanship and layout than far later henge sites. Plus, it was apparently completely buried to hide or preserve it at a later date. Can you tell me more about the culture that created it, it’s meaning and intent, its true age, etc.? The pictograms found at the site seem to predate the complex and different occupation layers indicate use of the site over many generations. [MEntity] This appears to be just one of many “pockets” of civilization that were intact and alive and valid in terms of a complexity that is often dismissed the further back in time modern civilization tries to peer. In this case, it seems to be a complex that was thriving from a time frame approximately 10,000 BCE to 6,000 BCE and was not the most-complex of the time, actually. The more complex and sophisticated a culture or civilization, the less traces there seem to be. This seems to have built up from (or atop) a civilization, or complex, that had been in place for nearly 5,000 years even before that. This particular site, then, could be said to house “layers” of, or even incarnations of, a basic premise for a complex over time, representing a sort of microcosmic rise/fall of one example of a people’s ideas and art and civilization, etc. When there is this rise/fall process, the previous ideas/structures are often built upon, literally and figuratively, so that sometimes they are quite intentionally covered as a means to create a new foundation. Those involved in this particular line of civilization ebb and flow appear to have been almost entirely of one Cadre of fragments that are still incarnating, but put forth a great deal of effort and experimentation at the time for the complexes that rose and fell here. Of course, that is not unusual. [Geraldine] Which Cadre? [MEntity] It would be the equivalent of what you might count as the 13th Energy Ring beyond your own, and Cadre 11 of that Energy Ring. Many of those fragments are currently involved in the revolutions and overhauling of the various infrastructures that have come to be collectively understood as “the middle east.” Most of the fragments involved are/were late Young to early Mature.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2004-03-04] [Heidi Hessler] Could Michael expand a bit on how the Great Pyramid operated as a practical means for transportation? …Sorry this question is off the subject. [Michael_Entity] We have a great deal to say about the “Great Pyramid” and various other structures of similar mystery, but we will limit our response to your question. We would not say that this structure was practical by any means, and we would not accurately describe it as a form of transportation. We would more accurately state that it was used for Teleportation. This feat was accomplished by harnessing the energy of Earthquakes. Its abilities extend beyond Teleportation within Space, but within Time, as well. It will be used “again”.

    [From TT: POF session 2013-04-01] [Oscar] Hey Michael =) I think it has been channeled that the person and life of Jesus Christ as we know it (from the Bible and other stories) is an amalgam of several persons/stories. I would like to know which persons and/or stories, and how they were amalgamated into the stories which are in the Bible. I'd like to use my allotted time for this. [MEntity] We have two responses for this: limiting the event to the validity of the man who was Jesus, stories were spread and extrapolated and retold in ways that incorporated fantasy, hearsay, and eagerness to claim witness to significant events. It was not so much that there were any specific people that could be isolated as reference, but that, like any popular event, the stories will grow with embellishment over time. [MEntity] In addition to these embellishments was an overlapping, or imposing, of previous stories already known, but now attributed to a more personal icon. Those stories were of Osiris, already circulating strongly in the cultures of the time, and used to make sense of the evolving importance placed on this Manifestation. [MEntity] Imagine someone in your time (named "Steve") having a profound message, having it cause a tremendous upset and uproar, but your never really having had any way to meet this person. You hear stories that he can fly, that he can lift great weights, and that he had a hidden identity. The lore of Superman, previously enjoyed only as fiction and fun, now comes to be attributed to this actual figure. [MEntity] So the lore of Superman comes to be the lore of Steve. [MEntity] The lore of Osiris became the lore of Jesus. [Oscar] So what was the real story of his life? [MEntity] Most of the humble beginnings are valid, except for the virgin birth, of course, and the growing conflict within regarding the concept of innocence and sin, prompted by his mother's influence and teaching. [MEntity] Being amid the poverty and suffering while watching divisions grow in society that seemed geared toward punishing and oppressing the poor, or invoking wars among them, the notion of the simple solution of "love one another" came to be upheld as his mission to secure. [MEntity] This was not sappy, or without details, but a serious attempt to encourage responsibility for one another, not just the self, or those similar to self. [MEntity] Over his life, as greater conflict grew within over these anomalies of behavior among people, he turned to the influences of his parents' who were part of the Essene communities of the time. [MEntity] Through his devotion of study and mastery of the Essene school of thought, along with the teachings of his parents', his empathy and compassion was brought to extreme levels of sensitivity. This extended to animals, and the body, and not just to fellow Humans, hence the strict vegetarian diet, regular fasting, and meditation. [MEntity] The Essene were not as strict against the killing of animals for food until Jesus entered for study, so we know this influence was left in ways that were adapted further by later students. [MEntity] The difficulty with hosting an Infinite Soul is that, despite all of the various experiences and challenges that the Personality and Essence take on in the journey to understand, the Logos/Pathos/Ethos ends up as such simplicity that it seems an easy, obvious, and accessible concept for the host to spread as far and as wide as possible. [MEntity] The teaching of Jesus, then, in its simplicity, gave him some amount of confidence and courage. It was not complicated to him. And because he slowly grew to surround himself with those who practiced the teaching, it became increasingly difficult to comprehend the growing hatred for him. [MEntity] He decided to take on great powers beyond him for the sake of his message, and was willing to deal with the consequences, presuming innocently that there would come a realization, a connection, a resonance to his own suffering, if it came to that, because he had so easily grasped the empathy for others' suffering. [MEntity] This is how the myth for his "dying for our sins" came to be. He was willing to suffer so that empathy could be generated, but not for the sake of taking on the burden of "sin" for eternity. [Oscar] What were those great powers? [MEntity] He knew that animals had no choice, no voice to Humans, but that he could endure more and voice that suffering in ways that could be heard, trusting in the humanity at the core of every human. [MEntity] "Great powers," as in the great authorities at the time. [Oscar] ah ok [MEntity] For the most part, his life was spent only trying to generate empathy, for animals, for the body/self, and for each other. This was at the heart of his "love one another, " and his solution to warring, poverty, and social injustices. [MEntity] Keep in mind that empathy was a profound concept at the time, among a Baby Soul mindset. Though this shift was working toward Young, the Logos/Pathos/Ethos will never aim low, since it is based in truth, love, energy. It cannot be. So while empathy may be seem to be well outside of the range of the Baby and Young for implementation, it is not. No Logos, Ethos, or Pathos is beyond any Soul Age for comprehension and application in some way. [MEntity] For the most part, his life was spent only trying to generate empathy, for animals, for the body/self, and for each other. This was at the heart of his "love one another, " and his solution to warring, poverty, and social injustices. [MEntity] The start of the hosting of the Infinite Soul began as he moved through the region of Judea, drawing the crowds that were unprecedented. [MEntity] We can continue to break down the life of the individual fragement's life into further details in other exchanges. Our response here was from a broader perspective of key elements, but for the most part, he had a "normal" life, except that his consciousness would not allow for him to look the other way, to ignore injustices, or to presume that intentional or unconscious causes of suffering was an acceptable part of life. [Oscar] What was the manner of Jesus' death and at what age did he die? [MEntity] Most versions of this fragment died naturally in his 50's and 60's after retreating back to studies, sanctuary, and safety with the Essene, raising a family, and fulfilling all Internal Monads. The deaths were fairly consistently that of age-related slowing of the body and its functions. [MEntity] Some died from complications of wounding, but most did not. [Oscar] Did he travel abroad, or stay in the Palestine area? [MEntity] His travel was fairly limited and did not include any travel abroad. [MEntity] Representatives who felt inclined to pose as him, or to represent his teachings, did travel as a means to help spread the teaching.

    [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 Michael Speaks: March 2009] [Question] While you’ve said many times that the essences within the first two humanoid Energy Rings have been ensouling into the physical plane for 6 million years, it’s hard to grapple with that number when the human form we use has only been around for perhaps 60,000 years. You’ve also said that these essences started out incarnating elsewhere, on Sirius. Is this time gap due to this earlier start and then waiting to adapt to the new humanoid form found on this planet? Also, what was the average soul age of those who did begin incarnating onto earth from the first two Energy Rings? [Michael Entity] It is not accurate that the human form you recognize as your evolutionary ancestors is merely 60,000 years old, but more that evidence has only been found (and publicly-made) that can be understood and evaluated within a limited time frame. There are anomalies that we see may eventually find substantial positions within your scientific history at some point. For now, those anomalies are set aside. However, it is accurate that there was a long “gap” between the shift from Sirius System and bodies to your current planet and bodies. Bodies had to be found that were similar to the original bodies and then manipulated to a point where Sentience could be sustained. There will always be that “missing link” in your evolutionary theories due to this transfer and manipulation. The average soul age of those who started in Sirius and then moved to The Milky Way were Infant. The only reason your species became endangered in Sirius was because of the gaining of Sentience. Once Sentience sets in to a species, behaviors change rather drastically. [Comment] I thought Sirius was part of the Milky Way. [Michael Entity] You are correct. We will clarify that with “a move from the Dog-Star/Sirius System to the Solar System.” [Question] So, it’s not uncommon for a newly sentient species to become endangered? [Michael Entity] It depends on the dominant Sentience already in place. [Question] Are the Pleiadians going to help us on earth? Are they already? [Michael Entity] In the case of the shift from Sirius system to the Solar System, most of the reigning sentience were early Young at the time. Those that are considered “Pleiadians” were instrumental in forcing your sentience to move to a safer location. They preferred your being made extinct, but the animal rights networks fought for your protection and transference. Part of their telepathic contact now is to help remedy that sentient faux pas, though they still feel a repulsion toward your species to a great extent. The same situation may happen between your sentience and Gorillas as they grow in sentient numbers. The realization of their intelligence and sentience could lead to a rather amazing relationship, along with a strong rooting of the Maturity of your species, or potentially to another round of mass slavery. One of the “worst” things any sentience can do in the scheme of things is to destroy or interfere with another sentience. We would think that humans inherently understood this by now, but that remains to be seen as a realization among the masses. The Mature Soul paradigm may bring about that empathy and awareness. [Comment] Gorillas are so endangered, it’s highly likely that they will fail to achieve the numbers they need to remain here. [Michael Entity] Gorillas will continue their ensoulment, even if not in all parallels. There will be at least one parallel for this to happen.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: August 2000] [Az61] I am wondering about the sunken Russian Nuclear submarine, the men aboard, etc. I get the feeling that this incident has to do with Russia’s collective evolution after communist rule. Can you comment on it? [Michael_Entity] This event appears to have two levels/angles since one was karmic while the other symbolic. Karmically, this was a group of fragments choosing this as a means to balance previous ship sinking Karma. Nearly all involved have created deaths due to drowning an anonymous vessel. The symbolic level is in the humbling of the search and rescue efforts to require an admission of need for help. This helps move maturity in many directions. As we have said, this period of time recently has been a period of time to ASK for help. It is part of a global experience. This sinking symbolized this to a great degree for many. Note: The Kursk sank the week before this session, killing all 118 on board. The Russian Navy was slow to realize that an accident had occurred and then attempted several rather inept rescues, which captivated the world. At the time of the session, people still hoped that some of the men were alive. Investigations later showed that all of the men died in multiple explosions that caused the sinking.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2007] [Kathryn41] In 1811/12 the New Madrid area (in sections of Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee) experienced 4 earthquakes of magnitude 7, 7.7, 7.4 and 7.9. The area is still seismically active and an 7 plus quake is considered a 90% probability within 50 years or so. Would Michael offer their view on what the current stability/risk of this area is for the near future? And, how ‘near’ is that future:-). Thank you. I am not looking for predictions but observations from your greater vantage point. [Michael Entity] The probability is accurate, but more likely within 20 years at this point. Correction: within 10 years.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2002-11-21] [Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death? [M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike? [Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate. [M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment’s death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.” Time becomes much more malleable and while some fragments will “immediately” seek the comfort and consolation of family and friends, others will “go back” to those hours immediately following death to offer comfort, but only after the fragment itself has reached some understanding of what has occurred. There is no standard. We can say, however, that the GENERAL way of experiencing post-body is through a process very similar to what you experience in terms of waking up physically. Most of you will have your experiences following death to be very similar to your experiences of waking up each day. If you wake up grouchy, you will most likely die “grouchily.” If you wake up “bubbly,” you will most likely die “bubbly.” If you recall your dreams more readily, you will most likely recall your lifetime as readily. If you never remember your dreams, you may find that a series of “dips” back into the lifetime timeline will be a form of review. Regardless of how all of this is experienced, most fragments are immediately interested in emotional rest, healing, and comfort during what you would call the first 72 hours.

    [excerpt from TT: 2001-03-01] SOME VALIDATION POINTS FOR DISCERNING FROM WHAT ENTITY NUMBER YOU MAY BE: Entity Ones are themed highly with a sense of PURPOSE, in that most from that Entity generate acceptable paths and initiatives for others or at least maintain a path that is apparently wrought with intent and meaning. Those from Entity One rarely question what they are DOING, but just DO IT, even if they are concerned that they might need to be doing something else, otherwise or in the future. They continue to DO what they are doing until they determine otherwise. They have a strong momentum. They create workable paths to accommodate the greatest amount of fragments to move through within a given period of time or to be left for other “generations” as well. [edited] Again, many from other Entities can claim they may feel similarly to these themes, but we are speaking from the angle of how you relate to the world, in general and consistently. There may be other factors in the Overleaves that allow you resonate to these descriptions, but this is where your trust in intuition and perception comes in.

    [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.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2002] [clairen] At what point in Gandhiji’s life did the Transcendental Soul manifest? [M_Entity] A Transcendental Soul is born. It does not manifest in the same way that the Infinite Soul does. This is because the fragment that is “in” the body is already a fragment from the Entity being represented. There will, of course, be a regaining of consciousness, but it will not be as lengthy and troubled as a single fragment's. This is why a Transcendental Soul tends to be so effective and magnetic quite early in the life. While the individual is technically a Transcendental Soul, he still exists with a Personality that will have its challenges based on imprinting or ideals. In his case, he had an emphasis on alleviating the effects of Greed, which would mean he had his own personal fears related to this Chief Feature. His Idealism, at times, would lead him into naivety as he would assume that sexual exchanges somehow “stole” from the energy of another, or himself. We remind you that while Transcendental Souls have a “higher” perspective of everything, they are immediately as susceptible to the confusions of being human as they are of the wisdom from the Entity. [clairen] Why did he feel so guilty about sex with his wife? [M_Entity] It will help to understand that sex was the most immediate indulgence available for the Transcendental Soul to use as a tool and example of restraint against Greed. Since this is a common indulgence, it was more symbolic than literal in his experiences.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: May 2010] [QUESTION] Hello Michael, my question is regarding Cadence mates. Could you please elaborate on that connection...How do they function with each other? how do they work together to accomplish their global job? [MEntity] We would first point out that our term "Cadence" refers to any group of 7 with a relative resonance, which means that a Cadre is a Cadence of Entities, for instance. We point this out because we know that many students use the term to refer to the smallest grouping of 7 fragments of a single Role as cast within an Entity. There are many variations on "Cadence" across a Cadre and within an Entity. We point this out not only for clarity, but to say that our response would apply to all Cadences. We use the term "Cadence" to reference not only the rhythmic flow/count of fragmentation from Tao in 7/8 time, but as a musical reference to the culmination and "conclusion" of that flow into what are Cadres. We will also clarify that while we are aware of the terminology, we are not familiar with what is designated as "global jobs" beyond what might be a part of a Configuration of Agreements across a Cadence, which might be global in scope; otherwise, there are no inherent "global jobs." The relationship among Cadence members would be akin to positively-romanticized sibling relationships. Although the entire spectrum of human relationships can be had between Cadence Members, there does tend to be a kinship that is "softer" even in the worst of circumstances, relatively speaking. Those cast in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Positions tend to gravitate toward each other, as do 2nd, 4th, and 6th positions. The 7th position tends to be in a more "aloof" position, so to speak, and often becomes a focal point for other members of the Cadence. For instance, it is not uncommon for the Entities 1 through 6 to generate Personalities who feel they are "in love with" 7th Entity members and the various Personalities that are generated by the Essences of that Entity across lifetimes. The same can be said of a Cadence of Roles within an Entity. This dynamic of focus and support might best be understood if one were to visualize a pyramid with the 7th Position being at the "top" so that all of the energy and focus, gravitationally-speaking, is distributed among the other Positions for that 7th Position. This is not a literal description, but one that helps you to see that inherent dynamic of that Configuration. [QUESTION] Would it be appropriate to say that each of the 7 positions, in conjunction with each other, allow for a more complete understanding and exploration of the various lenses that a Role in essence can perceive, itself? [MEntity] We would agree. We would also agree to that description on the larger scales, as well. For instance, a Cadence of Entities (Cadre) in the Love (first) Position of its Energy Ring (12 Cadres) would collectively bring perspective, experience, and comprehension to that subject for the Energy Ring. [QUESTION] is there a more specific name to indicate we're talking about the smallest group? [MEntity] The Cadence of Roles (which could be called a scale of Notes) would collectively contribute to the whole of that Role's experience, perception, and comprehension within the context of its Greater Cadence (group of 49; 7X7). Greater Cadence might also be called a Chord. Cadence members spend more lifetimes together than any other grouping, and that number of lifetimes is greater on the smallest scale of a Cadence than on the greater scale of Cadence. For example, the Cadence of Roles in an Entity spend the most lives together, and then the Cadence of Raw Numbers. The Cadence of Raw Numbers could be called Octaves that include the Traveling Companions and Essence Twin. All of the Cadence variations could be considered as various "Melodies" within a Cadre. [QUESTION] what is the difference between the cadence of roles and the one of raw numbers? I thought that was one and the same? what is the distinction? [MEntity] A Cadence of Roles would be akin to the Notes on a scale from C to A, whereas a Cadence of Raw Number are like the 7 C Notes in 7 Octaves, or the 7 D Notes, etc.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2005] [llawryf121] I’ve posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”? [Michael_Entity] That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context. In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamorous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work. In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality. Or Manifesting Essence. The fusion of Personality and Essence into a co-creative process. We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system. They are the language of glamour.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2002-04-04] 7 Spheres of Awareness of Essence NOTE: The word “Levels” was not a very accurate word for what Michael was trying to convey in the chat on this Topic. I found when editing the transcript that Michael suggested SPHERES instead. This gives a far more accurate picture to the development of Awareness in a life. [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand the topic to be “7 Spheres of Awareness of Essence.” We will share what we can in regard to this within the time available. As many of you are aware, the Physical Plane is not the only Plane of existence. The Personality only exists within the Physical Plane, along with the Physical Body, while Essence exists to some degree in all Planes “at once.” In any given lifetime, the Personality is capable of gaining awareness of its own Essence in varying circles of awareness. A Soul Age or Essence Role or Overleaves do not limit the Sphere of Awareness, though it can be said that these things contribute to the ease or challenge of gaining awareness. The oldest soul may have a particularly difficult lifetime that inhibits awareness while a younger soul may find a blissful connection to Essence on all levels. It is the choice of Personality as to whether it wishes to have a connection to Essence on a conscious level and to what degree. Essence NEVER imposes itself on its Personality. The Personality is too valuable for that kind of relationship. Essence needs the Personality as an extension of itself to explore and learn from the Physical Plane. Essence cannot exist fully where you are incarnated without a body of some sort. For that reason, Essence allows the Personality to seek Essence as Personality sees fit, though Essence is ever-watchful and loving to each version of Personality within the Physical Plane. Though Essence is not as attached to the Physical Plane as a Personality, Essence still finds great empathy and ever-growing love for each Personality. The Tao, and by extension the Essence, finds it to be a far more loving relationship to have what is created seek the creator, rather than the creator enforcing itself on the life. As Personality and the Body grow within each lifetime, it must “re-remember” all of its Soul Levels and Ages and regain that level of consciousness and perspective all over again. It is stored in the Instinctive Center exactly where you are in your development as Essence, but each new Body must regain consciousness as a means to house the perspective of Essence. Some may or may not reach the previous level of Soul Age. It is perfectly possible to have a Young Soul lifetime wherein the fragment is technically an Old Soul, depending on several factors in Personality. The difference is that each Soul Level has its capacity to gain up to and through all 7 Spheres of Awareness. It could easily be said that these Spheres of Awareness are the Levels WITHIN the Soul Levels. The 7 Internal Monads could be said to be the process of INTERNAL rites of passage toward moving through a Soul Level while the 7 Spheres of Awareness may be said to be the EXTERNAL process of moving through a Soul Level. Both must be completed and experienced within as many lives as it takes before moving to a new Soul Level. The 7 Spheres of Awareness then could be described as follows: Sphere One: This is the simplest Sphere of Awareness. This Sphere is basic to any Sentient Being. This is self-awareness on the most rudimentary and mechanical level. You are aware you are alive; that you must feed yourself; that you must protect yourself; that you must interact with life. Sphere One is the most separated, narrow, and isolated of all Spheres of Awareness. There is no real concept of “spirit” or anything more than what is immediately tangible. This would extend into areas of “love” and other such intangible experiences. The fragment perceiving from within this Sphere merely does what it needs to do to survive and to gain the next experience. This fragment usually experiences life solely from the Negative Poles of the Personality and rejects all forms of intervention for helping raise its awareness. There is an absolute disconnection from all life forms around this fragment. It is hard for them to even understand the “point of living.” Sphere Two: This is the Sphere wherein you get a glimpse of life through the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. You gain a bit of awareness as to what your Essence is like, even if not fully defined. You decide you must have a soul. That much is at least considered to be possible. This Sphere of Awareness begins to expand beyond the limitations of the Body and into the realms of possibilities. Imagination becomes more harnessed for creativity, rather than fear and protection, as in Sphere One, and the fragment begins to consider his dreams along with other concepts that are not tangible, yet acknowledged as experienced. It is a Sphere in which the fragment begins to consider his relationship with himself as more than a machine, but a BEING. Sphere Three: Expanding beyond the Spheres previous to this, Sphere Three allows the fragment to begin to consider the intangibilities between it and others, not just within. The fragment begins to long for and seek deeper intimacy. This Sphere is marked with the awareness that other fragments share a history with you that extends beyond the current life and Personality, even if this is not quite understood. The relationship to Time begins to change and there is less emphasis on it as a constraint, but rather as a convenience. Sphere Four: This is the Sphere of Awareness that brings a fragment to the reality its own Past Selves to-date. The fragment becomes capable of acknowledging wisdom gained from outside the confines of the current life and allows influences from The Past and Future Lives alike. This Sphere finds Personality capable of recognizing patterns in the life and the life of others, enabling the fragment to envision probable futures as they are created or as were planned before the life. The fragment begins to realize that the Personality focused on at any given moment does not diminish the reality of MANY versions of that same Personality across Parallel Universes created by Essence to house all of the choices possible. This is the Sphere that the fragment truly has the capability for channeling, healing, directing energy, and using psychic tools. (We will note here that ALL Spheres are capable of Intuition, which is simply the extension and combination of physical senses. True psychic awareness, though, is not the same thing.) Sphere Four is the first time a fragment discovers a true relationship between the Personality and the life and finds a deep sense of trust and safety as the life unfolds. Sphere Five: This is the Sphere in which you begin to see others as extensions of yourself. It is profoundly realized that the helping of others to resolve their own troubles will also contribute to your own lessons on many levels. This Sphere brings with it the realization and awareness that the Personality is a temporary and a beautiful “child” of Essence. A strange double awareness will be experienced here, wherein the trials and challenges of the life indulged in while maintaining a consistent awareness through the perspective of Essence that “all is well”. Sphere Six: This is the Sphere of Awareness that brings with it the realization that the Universe has an awesome structure that can be understood. A new, consistent relationship to what might be called “spirit” then develops. You begin to recognize the “signatures” of different spiritual families, or Entities, and find the lifetime heavily focused on what might be called “the path.” This “path” will be, of course, defined and created by the individual fragment, but a deep recognition that ALL are on variations of similar paths will be incorporated into the life. This is the first time the Fragment begins to recognize the value of life in other species beyond itself. Energy and life force, as expressed in all its forms, begins to become deeply important to the fragment to be in harmony with. While the Fifth Sphere allows the fragment to see other fragments as extensions of self, the Sixth Sphere will build on this and find this extends to animals outside the realm of that fragment’s own Sentient Species. The fragment profoundly grasps that other beings are capable of relative fear and have relative emotional lives, too. From this Sphere a deep longing for what might be called “home” begins to motivate the life. Sphere Seven: This is the Sphere wherein the fragment finally grasps how to use all of the tools of the Body, the Physical Plane, and the Personality and finds the life unfolding, changing, and being created in profoundly acceptable ways. ALL limitations of the lifetime are found to be acceptable while all of the possibilities are recognized as well. There is no division between Essence and Personality in any way. All Levels of Soul Age gained to that point are used effectively and appropriately. This is the Sphere where it is difficult to find anything ugly about life. A childlike innocence is regained and everything becomes new and fun again, without fear of anything. We include the “fear of fear” in that statement. Sphere Seven allows Fear as a tool appropriately. If fear is experienced, it is recognized as simply part of everything that is wondrous about the life. There are, of course, far more detailed descriptions of each Sphere of Awareness available, but we share this for you within the time frame available here. What we have shared should allow for adequate consideration. We will now take any questions you may have for us on this topic. [val] Can one be aware and functioning on several Spheres at once, i.e., I resonate with Spheres three through seven, I feel as if I’ve been there and living these Spheres, or is your essence setting up these stages to bring them to your awareness so that when you get there it feels like home. [M_Entity] Different Spheres of Awareness may be present within different contexts of your life. For instance, you may have Sphere 3 Awareness when in relationships, while having Sphere 4 in your Career. Your Awareness will fluctuate throughout the lifetime and you will recognize different time frames having different Spheres of Awareness as well. Although you progress through the lifetime to gain Spheres of Awareness, you will move “up and down” through the Spheres as relative to your experiences. Sphere One, for example, will ALWAYS be available in any lifetime. It is the Sphere of the heaviest of Karmic relationships. A fragment may have reached the Sphere Seven of Awareness in a lifetime, but a ribbon of Karma may be chosen to burn and the Awareness will then constrict to Sphere One as it is dealt with. [mdfsage] What is meant by “to find other animals outside the realm of that fragments sentience”? [M_Entity] In your case, the Awareness would begin to include strong resonance and recognition to beings who are NON-human. The recognition may only begin with the recognition of other ensouled beings, such as Cetacean and Gorillas, but eventually, would include those beyond that. [val] How do we regain consciousness, and open this instinctive center to better communicate with essence? [M_Entity] In the interest of using the time available efficiently through this channel, we will say we have answered this question in other chats. These transcripts would be available through Troy or his website. Troy, or other students, will direct you to those detailed responses. There are different ways each Essence Roles may find to open connections to Essence. [Kathryn41] If you advance through a soul age level within a life – say Old 3 to Old 4, do you start again at Sphere 1 of awareness and ‘lose’ the previous awareness, or do you overlap and keep that awareness and start over. How does that work? [M_Entity] These are rare and interesting lifetimes when a fragment transitions within a lifetime without taking on a new body. The Older Soul finds this process to be less confusing, but still have a lot of challenges in this shifting. When a transition of Soul Age or a Soul Level occurs within a lifetime, yes, the Personality will undergo a great change in some way, even if only over a brief period of time. Considering that the Body will not have lost its memory, it is quite possible to regain those Spheres of Awareness within minutes. There is a process that occurs for those who move Soul Levels within a lifetime. We refer to that experience as an Octave Ending/Beginning, and would be another topic in itself. But to simplify the response, since the Body will not have been replaced, the evolution through the Monads and the Awareness Spheres will not have been lost when entering the new Soul Level. [sam-nemo] I thought 6 level was the heaviest level of karmic payback and most psychic, not 1or 4. [M_Entity] You are comparing the 6th Level of a Soul Age to the 6th Sphere of Awareness of Essence. They are completely different contexts. When in the 6th Level of a Soul Age, depending on the Soul Age, the lifetime may be submerged in Sphere One of Awareness or not. We realize English is a bit limited in our choices for describing progressions and evolution. We suggest that similar terms do not mean the same thing, necessarily, when in a different context. For most Older Souls, Sphere Five of Awareness is quite common when experiencing the 6th Level of Soul Age. This allows for the life to be lived consciously while still being free to indulge in the Karma. [sam-nemo] Therefore essence awareness lags soul age. [M_Entity] It may help to think of the Spheres of Awareness as being angles of perception toward an experience. In other words, as Awareness progresses, you move from only Personality experiencing, to Essence AND Personality being present for the experience. We are open to suggestions for more appropriately naming these 7 Spheres. And yes, Awareness Spheres may exceed or “lag” behind Soul Age, but eventually, Awareness on the 7th Sphere must be reached as a means to move to the next Soul Level. [ClaireN] Please expand on the “true relationship between personality and the life” as mentioned in Sphere four. [M_Entity] It is the first time a fragment may consider that life happens FROM them, rather than TO them. It is the first time a fragment may realize that he or she may not only be learning how to choose but also be choosing how to learn.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2009-03-08] [Question] Thank you, Michael & Troy. Can you share any thoughts on learning to better allow essence manifestation through music? Similarly, any observations on how to enable/allow essence contact through music as a vehicle for healing/self-healing for the people involved? [Michael Entity] One way to help manifest Essence through music, whether in sharing or in creating, is to understand the PART of your Centering. The PART is how “you” most easily and habitually bring yourself out into the world, into manifestation. Centering can help one to understand how one experiences music, while the Part can help one to understand how this music represents one in the world, whether in creating or sharing tastes. Emotional = fluid, non-linear, vocals as instruments; Intellectual = structure, patterns, lyrics; Moving = beats, rhythms, tribal; Each of these elements will be found in most music, but we are answering the question as to how one can manifest Essence through music, so we delineate here to help explain. For those CREATING music, then this is easier to understand as one emphasizes what one is creating, so the fragment in the Intellectual Part might be more inclined to manifest Essence through compositions that are structured, patterned, and with lyrics. For those SHARING music, this general information can help you to understand how best to manifest your Essence in the music you share with others, so that the fragment who is in the Intellectual Part can share Essence through songs that are catchy and express stories about oneself. When dealing with music as a form of healing, then the CENTERING would be best to consider. So that the Emotionally-Centered fragment does well with listening to fluid, non-linear, and vocalization in music. And so forth. Again, most music will have elements of two or more centers, but listening for what is emphasized can help you to determine your Essence music and your Healing music. This is a highly generalized response to accommodate the format, but it is a start.

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