    ENERGY REPORT April 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) APRIL arrives with a solid slam into the emphasis on Power Mode after intensity has reached a crescendo in Submission. Submission has taken quite a literal turn in its emphasis, with the delineation clear between those who are devoted to each other and those who serve only themselves. You live in a Mature Soul paradigm now. The levels of intensity and dramatic change, revelations, and revolutions are global, profound, and no one is untouched in a Mature Soul world. Many of these Mature Soul events will be profoundly exciting and uplifting and some will be profoundly terrifying and exhausting. Many responses to this pandemic are bringing to positions of Power the Mature Soul concepts and values of caring and compassion and kindness for no other reason than for it to be the “right thing to do.” Responses to this pandemic are bringing to light the quality and value of care for each other for no other reason than to care. There are people trying to contribute and care in sloppy ways and others trying to contribute and care in ways that are painful and difficult, and others contributing and caring by simply stepping back to not be in the way or make things worse. However one chooses to contribute and to support the values of caring, it makes a difference. This pandemic is playing out in quite literal ways the dire consequences of neglect, lack of care, lack of consideration, and lack of connection to each other. Lack of care for others is quite literally deadly. This includes the lack of care for consequences, lack of care for education, lack of care for marginalized communities, lack of care for the vulnerable, even lack of care for yourself, etc. There is also an emphasis on how caring is a spectrum that covers a wide range between direct care to indirect care. You do not have to be on the front lines to help others. You do not have to risk your life to care. Caring ALWAYS includes Doing or action, but that action is not always on display, direct, or obvious. Now more than in any other example there are clear indications of how your care can make a difference simply because you care enough to do what needs to be done. In this case, stay home, shelter-in-place, reduce the spreading the pandemic. What you are seeing in this spectrum of care and lack of care is POWER MODE in effect. Caring can sometimes feel Oppressive if you care only if you can see direct consequences or obvious effects, but when you care because you choose to care, even if it is indirect with consequences that are far-reaching, this is Authority. When you CHOOSE to care and do what needs to be done, you are in Authority. When you disregard the necessity of caring unless it only gives you immediate gratification and personal consequences, then caring feels and creates Oppressive states. It could be said that the entire concept of Power Mode is one’s capacity and willingness to care. When one willingly cares, they are in Authority. When one begrudgingly cares or refuses to care, Oppressive consequences result. In a Mature Soul paradigm, a Mature Soul world, your capacity and willingness to care are your currency and Power. This is no longer about how much you care about that which is in front of you, but about the consequences that you cannot see immediately. This includes your care for those not like you, your care for those on the other side of the planet, your care for the animals and environment, your care for the future, etc. At first, the entire mental and emotional shift toward caring, or Power, on such a global scale is daunting. You have lived in a Young Soul paradigm for all of your life and you have been taught that you need only care about that which matters to you, to care about that which is in front of you, or that serves you or that has immediate consequences or effects. This is why Oppression continues across the globe. The capacity and willingness to care is dictated by the measure of inconvenience because Convenience is the currency and power of the Young Soul. If it is inconvenient, it is not worth caring about. If your care is drawn from you when you are not willing or interested or connected, it is experienced as inconvenient, oppressive. This is why many of you respond with defense or dismissal or denial to considerations for the suffering of animals, the destruction of the environment, the reality of slave labor, or racial, gender, sexual inequalities. The most important thing you can take from this move into the emphasis on Power Mode is that your currency of power is no longer the power of convenience but the power of caring. You need not and cannot care about everything, but you can care. We will define care here as “doing what needs to be done for the health, well-being, preservation, and security of someone or something.” You now live in a world where you must do what needs to be done, even if it inconveniences you. As the world evolves, the concept of “inconvenience” will fade. It is an artificial and outdated concept. You need not see the consequences of your caring to care. You need not be direct in your caring to care. In the current pandemic scenario, you need not even leave your home to care for others. Caring for yourself is caring for others, and caring for others is caring for yourself. As April moves forward and into May, the world remains in a state that could be described as a metaphoric pulling back of a slingshot. You are in the state of stretching that will reach a point where it must be released and “slingshot” humanity forward at an accelerated rate. What matters is not how stressed or stretched humanity is at the moment, but where humanity aims for when it launches forward. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): April 25th -- Energy Shift -- GRIEF OR RELIEF - This Energy Shift comes with pivotal energy that either leads to great grief for what is to come or about what has come to pass vs great relief for what is to come or about what could have been worse. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER APRIL: HOPE & DESPAIR and cries for CARE - It is important here to explore the state of Despair and the role of Hope. Despair is a state that comes when one is dependent upon Hope over Caring. Hope comes when one expects and/or counts on others to care. Hope is often framed as a healthy and beneficial state that helps one through troubled times. However, Hope puts the consequences of care or lack of care in the hands of others. For most, the concept of Hope is profoundly unhealthy. It leads to unnecessary despair for many. Your life can immediately course-correct if you reconsider if you rely too much on Hope and not enough on Care. That being said, it is important to note that there are individuals and communities and animals who are legitimately at the mercy of the care from others. They only have Hope. They care. They care deeply, but circumstance forces them to be dependent upon the care from others. They need others to care. They need others to do what needs to be done. They need you. Consider how you can or how you do make a difference for those who cannot make a difference for themselves, humans and animals, alike. This is your new Power, your new currency.

    Troy: TOPIC FOR TODAY: okay, today will be pretty casual, but I wanted to request from Michael a kind of check in with where we are and where we might be headed regarding the pandemic and the Infinite Soul, followed by a request for insight into how best to navigate this phase of isolation, distancing, and general extreme patience necessary for navigating this time. If there is time and I have the focus, we can open the floor to Qs after that. Have a great session, everyone!!! ******* MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We have been asked to comment on the current pandemic scenario and its trajectory. At the moment and for the next 3 to 6 weeks, the breakthrough or breakdown of a collective Turning Point is being generated. As many of our students know, a Turning Point is a pivotal experience that is generated from either lack of awareness, neglect, resistance, or denial regarding a major change that is being created through choices, decisions, actions, and inactions. It is not that these pivotal moments are predestined or already in place. They are generated over time from collective or individual choices, decisions, actions, and inactions. For example, if one is eating in ways that are harmful to the body, there will come a Turning Point where one will be forced to consider how to respond to the trajectory created by eating in ways that are harmful. It is merely math. Humanity has been generating a major Turning Point on a massive scale for the past 300 years or so and it is coming to that pivotal moment now, in your lifetime, in this very year. Some Turning Points come rather quickly in an individual's life, but on a collective scale, these can take time to culminate. Turning Points are not magical or cosmic or imposed in any way. But they cannot be avoided once they have been generated. This is a scale where NO ONE can avoid the impact, participation, and contribution to the Breakdown or Breakthrough that comes on the other side of a Turning Point. The next 3 to 6 weeks determines a great deal for what direction humanity takes, particularly in regard to how you treat each other, yourselves, sentient life (creatures with the capacity for suffering) and Nature. This does not mean that all great choices and decisions must be made in that span of time, but that there are symbolic and emotional and psychological and physical choices, decisions, actions, and inactions that will contribute to this Turning Point. The greatest symbolic event during this time is how this Pandemic is navigated. For those taking it seriously and considering the deep, profound, and meaningful value of one's individual participation in humanity, a Breakthrough is highly likely, both in terms of collective scale and individual scale. Even a single and slight shift in awareness of your value and meaning in the vastness of humanity contributes greatly to the Breakthrough that may come. This pandemic is NOT a lesson brought to you or imposed on you and none of what has come is a matter of deserving or not deserving. The universe does not work in such petty, patronizing, or parental ways. However, you WILL learn something from the experience because that is the nature of existence and evolution and it can be quite fulfilling to learn how to choose and to choose what to learn. Over the next 3 to 6 weeks, let this be your emotional, psychological, and physical guidance. Ask yourself what you are learning. Ask yourself what you would like to learn. Ask yourself what choices have been made in your life that could use more consideration and awareness. Ask yourself how you would choose differently going forward. This time and this experience are YOURS. You are not merely waiting for the world to start again. You are alive. You still exist. And you are not alone. Own what you can from this experience as a way to be a part of the Breakthrough. There will be many who are not interested in or are resisting a Breakthrough, but that is not your concern unless you have the immediate power to influence those individuals or groups. Your concern is you and your circle of influence and power. It is not a contradiction to say that one cannot change the entire world while changing the entire world. At this point, we see all of our students moving toward a Breakthrough. This experience matters to you in ways that you have not begun to consider in terms of its impact on the rest of your life. We know of no student who does not want to and who is not actively willing to be a part of creating what comes out of this. All of you have a choice, and we have no investment in what your choice might be, but we have not found a student who is opting out. Even our most overwhelmed and confused and depressed students are in a deep search for what to make of what is happening on such a scale. Some of you can validate that you are holding grand meetings in the Astral as you sort through the emotions, ideas, choices, priorities, etc. that you may not have the energy or focus to do in the Physical Plane. Others are using "Zoom." However long this takes and however isolated and distant and patient each of you must be as you navigate the weeks ahead, find your way to connect to these three things: YOURSELF, EACH OTHER, and NATURE. We have said this before but will say it again, that if you are uncertain about what to do with or for yourself, each other, and nature, then all you have to worry about is being kind. By simply shifting your awareness to how to be kind, be kinder, be your kindest, you cannot go wrong. Sometimes that kindness will mean going out of your way, and sometimes that kindness will mean stepping back; sometimes that kindness will mean increasing your actions, and sometimes will mean reducing them; sometimes it will mean doing what you have been avoiding, and sometimes it will mean giving yourself a break from the pressure of doing anything at all. As usual, all of the above suggestions and insights are offered as choices, not as instruction or imposition. Your choices are yours. We only offer these insights and suggestions because you are a student who is interested in the power and consequences of choice. In addition to all of the above, and in more metaphysical terms, we can say that over the next 3 to 6 weeks comes the first influx of Infinite Soul Energy. Some of you may already be sensing it and tapping into this. Buddhic Plane Energy moves through the Physical Plane regularly, but when we say that "Infinite Soul Energy" is moving through the Physical Plane, we mean that there is a concentration and focus in that energy that is almost tangible in its effect. For those already tapping into this, you may have had your sleep patterns disrupted, your dream states escalated, your energy levels either agitated, scattered, and frenetic or focused into high productivity and need for creating. These symptoms could be from any time or event, so we do not expect that they should be definitive, but they are valid symptoms. On a larger scale, this Infinite Soul Energy has the intent to bring with it ALIGNMENT, for lack of a better term. There may come to be a domino-effect in a clear and distinct alignment among many who are aiming for a Breakthrough in this Turning Point. This means pronouncements from authorities in politics and other arenas in life, along with your own friends and family, to bring about important changes that would support a Breakthrough. Many who are currently denying or defying any effort to consider the responsibilities of a Breakthrough may begin to come around and even become strong voices of support. We cannot predict this, but it is looking like a high probability. It may not always look like it from where you are, but humanity is awake now. There is no interest in turning back. It is done. You and we are moving forward in our evolution. This does not mean there will be no screaming, fighting, and fear, but it is happening and we see all of our students are more than willing and ready for their part in this evolution, however quiet or loud that part may be. We cannot and will not predict the future, but we respond to your requests today with the truth that most of humanity is not taking this or your future together lightly. There is no evil, but there are negative poles, and there are many in the negative poles. There is no evil, but there is stupidity, which is not related to one's intelligence. We define stupidity here as an extreme dullness in awareness. It is true that there are many who are in the negative poles, stupid, and asleep. You may or may not be able to do much about them because they will have their own processes and paths of awakening and sharpening of awareness. We bring these individuals and groups up because as long as your evolution and progress do not have to be defined by or disrupted by these individuals or groups, we suggest that you define your own course forward with others who are sharing in that course. We have much more to say on this subject and we know that you likely have questions in response today, but we must conclude here for today as our channel is losing focus. We remind you that we are here with you. You are here with you. And you are here for and with each other. We will continue together. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    Hey everyone! PERSONAL UPDATE: This post has been a long time coming and I am very sorry I have not been updating over the course of the past many months. It feels as if 2020 started out with a black hole forming on the horizon and it took all of my strength to fight the gravity of it. I really thought for a while there that I may be consumed by it. But I trusted myself and all of you trusted me and I found my way back. I started to get glimpses of my strength a few weeks ago, but it wasn't until this week that I realize I have been able to sustain a sense of grounding and focus for more than a few days. I am ready to get back to work and focus on doing all I can to make the rest of 2020 into something better than it might have been. It is really... really... scary to not recognize yourself, to lose yourself, to be swallowed by whatever it was I was overwhelmed by. I don't know exactly what happened and I know the only thing that kept me in touch with the core or spark of who I am was trust. I've been through a lot in this life and when I have no idea what to do or what is coming next, I do what Michael described in a few of our recent reports: I just keep moving. Forward, if possible. And I trust. I just throw all of my trust into myself and know that I will do what I need to do to get through. Because I always have. So that's the best news... I'm back! I mean, I still expect some ups and downs, but I am back to feeling myself more regularly and am actually excited to get back on track. Beyond all of my gratitude and appreciation for your trust in me, I also want to say I am very sorry. No one likes when others are hurt or affected by our own pain or processes. I am very sorry for that. BACKLOG UPDATE: As most of you know, backlog has been building for a while and I was really worried about how I was going to get back on top of it. Instead of worrying and being overwhelmed, I am just going to put everything back on the schedule! ALL overdue sessions will now receive an updated date for delivery and tracker ID and you will no longer have to wonder what is going on. I will be sorting out that schedule over this week and everyone should get an email when your session has its new date. These sessions will remain as email sessions, so there is no need to worry about coordinating time. TeamTLE is going to meet with me and ensure that I am on top of the schedule every day. This may take some time to catch up, but I *will* catch up and you *will* get the best and clearest channeling I can provide. ALL special reports, such as the Essence Reports, will also be given new dates for delivery and tracker IDs. NEW APPOINTMENTS: Currently, all new appointments will remain as email sessions so I can move things around as necessary. As soon as I have the schedule set and under control, I will reactivate all previous services, including live channeling sessions! Give me some time to ensure I am sorted out, but live sessions are coming back sooner than later! Details to come! WHOLENESS OF SOUL COURSE: Brace yourself for a drop of several chapters and a plan for a group event that will pull everything together and refocus your enthusiasm for the course, if you lost it. Details to come! TruthLoveEnergy Great Gathering 2020 - Lifebridge It is not looking good for having a gathering in person, but a final decision has not been made just yet. We will be making that final decision in July. This final decision will require input from Lifebridge, the community. We will discuss this in more detail on Discord in the TLEGG channel. TruthLoveEnergy Great Gathering 2020 - THE ONLINE EDITION Details are coming soon, but regardless of whether we have our local gathering, we are going to have our first annual Great Gathering ONLINE! This will be a dedicated weekend with a schedule of live events and contributions from members in the community for classes, lectures, Q&A, live channeling, readings, etc. There will be an application and approval process for members to offer up their own lecture, art, class, meditation, etc. We will even have a new Discord Server just for TLEGG that will have meeting rooms, reading rooms, voice and video chat hangouts, and I think we will even be able to have our beloved dance party! I am still working out the details, but I expect to launch promotion of the event after we have determined the fate of the local gathering. This is going to be awesome! Again, thank you for everything and for trusting me and I promise I will not let you down. I'm back! Troy

    ENERGY REPORT January 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional and Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) JANUARY continues a fairly clear wave of Self-Destruction carrying over from 2019, though it appears to have anchored primarily in the Baby and Young Soul populations. This continued wave of Self-Destruction is one that may be contained to specific populations, but the impact may affect many beyond those populations. When there is a complete lack of value regarding life, Self-Destruction can fall into the Negative Pole of Suicide, but this can mean taking or destroying as many lives as possible with that act of suicide. Over the months of January, February, and March, Self-Destruction may escalate and show up in ways that are playing out the Baby and Young rejection of Mature progression that may be seen as a threat to Order and Power. Regardless of how the Baby and Young are handling the changes in the world, Mature and Old Souls are likely to feel the relief and lifting of the pressures from Self-Destruction that had been fairly heavy over 2019. This relief has come because many of the older souls have decided to focus on inspired action and have embraced the challenges of the Goal of Submission for 2020. Submission is a Goal that is all about aligning one’s actions with a greater force or authority that has been deemed meaningful and beneficial. When this is in the Positive Pole, Devotion, those in Submission share in the momentum of meaning and benefit that this greater force carries. As the Goal of Submission takes hold for most of our students, it would mean beginning to sort out and narrow down your focus on what matters to you in ways that inspire Devotion to a cause or value or force that is already great and is made greater by your participation. This may be a broad devotion that is about aligning your life to various ways that help your basic choices feel more meaningful and beneficial, or it may be a focused devotion on a specific change or cause that you feel is meaningful or beneficial. Baby and Young Souls will also feel this shift into Submission, though many may jump directly to the Negative Pole, Subservience, and fall into blind faith in a cause or force that has an impact, but that takes away meaning and brings harm. January through March may be quite precarious in the world at large, but your personal life may begin to find some clarity, comfort, and commitment as you begin to access the Sage, Higher Emotional Center and Submission energies of the year. As your year begins, it can be helpful for each of our students to differentiate between world events and personal events. Devote yourself to the greater forces that matter to you as that devotion is what helps to benefit greater forces that bring greater events. It can also be helpful to take a look at how you may have come to be Subservient to greater forces in your life so that you blindly move forward in ways that disregard harmful impact and meaning. In general, we see our students awkwardly struggling to nurture and share in optimism, while also tentative and uncertain. January is a good month for experiencing the truth and love and energy that can exist in and be generated from what seem to be contradictions. It is healthy to be optimistic and uncertain, but challenges can come when one of these is rejected for the other. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): January 1st - 5th -- Energy Shift -- COMFORT/CONFLICT -- This shift will be different between those who have embraced the patterns of personal and collective evolution versus those who have rejected personal and collective progress. If you feel the comfort, allow it. Take actions that serve this comfort. It is vital to embrace comfort when this comes because there are long stretches in life where discomfort is a valuable means of promoting growth. Comfort is not an escape or denial, but a means of integration and comprehension. For those who have fallen into Conflict, it may be some of your Baby and Young imprinting working itself out. If you find yourself in conflict and chaos, ride this out and then look at it again from the other side. January 20th - 23rd -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - This Nexus appears to bring with it a bundle of parallels that have been in a long recovery since 1980 from the effects of climate changes caused by the eruption of Mount Saint Helen. In some parallels, this eruption was far more devastating, particularly in terms of its effects on the global atmosphere and ecology. The convergence brings with it a wave of vision and inspiration for correcting pressing issues regarding environment, ecology, and stewardship. It was realized that humanity cannot control the effects of nature, but can control their effects ON nature. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JANUARY: DREAM BIG - January brings with it a tentative sense of permission to return to upholding and nurturing optimism and dreams for a brighter future. We suggest that these be brought to the surface and held confidently, even as you may find personal and collective challenges continue. When we say to “dream big,” we mean to suggest giving yourself full permission to be okay with creating a better future rather than ONLY preventing or enduring an unwanted future. Dream big. The details for fulfilling those dreams can only come out of permission to have them in the first place.

    BACKSTORY: As most of you already know, I live with a chronic immune system condition that is mostly known as A.I.D.S. I am “perfectly” healthy and in a state they describe as “undetectable,” meaning they can’t find any HIV in my blood at all. I live on a cocktail of medications that supposedly help keep me alive, and my own vegan diet helps tremendously in countering any serious issues. But I still struggle with ups and downs of health that are often vague and oppressive and include headaches/migraines, extreme fatigue, low-grade constant cold symptoms that sometimes explode into severe colds, and then sometimes I fall flat into some scary states that have yet to be diagnosed or understood and these knock me off my feet for days. This isn’t how I live my life every day, but these things often disrupt my life and my focus on work. Add to this the weight of depression that has slowly crept into my life since Trump got elected. It may seem silly, but it has truly affected the quality of life for many of my friends. I’ve never experienced depression before and finally had to accept that I endure it now. I think it’s pretty mild compared to clinical depression, so for those who suffer clinical depression, my heart goes out to you. It has exacerbated the health issues above. And I have to admit that my diagnosis of A.I.D.S. 12 years ago still haunts me and weighs on me every single day. It’s not something that is easy to live with psychologically. I am as healthy as anyone else, but it’s like a ticking time bomb that keeps you living in a state between life and death. This actually helps my relationship with Michael and improves the quality of the channeling, so there’s that! When I was dying of pneumonia in that hospital bed in The Netherlands in 2007, I actually got to “meet” Michael before I fell into my 5-day coma. It was surreal and disturbing and beautiful, and it was one of the most comforting moments I’ve ever experienced. I think it calmed me down and helped me trust in my existence and let my body do its work of recovery. I don’t know. But I survived. When I returned to NYC from The Netherlands, it would take me 5 years to breathe normal again and I was very lucky that New York State has health programs in place that help those with no insurance to get the healthcare and prescriptions necessary for survival. I have been gratefully living with that healthcare since 2007. So the good news is that I’m surviving and thriving! And on paper, I am healthy and have nothing to worry about. These random states of health do not define me or my life, but I also can’t ignore them, so I eat as best I can, and take my medications, and use the Michael Teachings to help me understand and create and evolve all through these ups and downs. But my healthcare is essential... which leads me to 2019. FAST-FORWARD TO 2019 As 2019 approached, I was alerted that I would no longer be eligible for my healthcare. I have been living with profound stress and uncertainty for all of 2019. I fought to keep my healthcare and lost. Eventually I was free-falling. I could no longer get check ups, bloodwork, and my supposed life-saving medications were running out. This was so stressful for me that my health and my optimism took a nosedive and I’ve been struggling off and on all year. It has affected my work for all of you, not in terms of quality of channeling, but in terms of my keeping up and staying on schedule. I honestly felt like I was having to get my private life in order and prepare to die. If not soon, then at least sooner than I expected. Suddenly the past 12 years felt like borrowed time and I had run out of it. To be perfectly honest, I was terrified. Truly scared for my life. It never matters how much you understand and work with the dead... dying is a big deal! But I kept it together and continued to research and ask for help from sources that could help me. I’m self-employed and do not make enough money to cover health insurance on my own, but I also make too much money to qualify for the Medicaid I had been with for all of these years. So my focus has been heavily directed toward saving my life and this distraction has disrupted a lot of my schedule and plans. I’ve been doing the best I can to juggle all of this... And it finally paid off! I GOT MY HEALTHCARE BACK! My advocate directed me to a program for which I qualify and I am in the process of restoring my healthcare! When my advocate told me this, I broke down in tears. I had been carrying the weight of this for so long, mostly privately and alone because it was too heavy to share. I just wanted to focus on solutions. And I finally found one. BACK TO WORK So if you have noticed or sensed my distance and distraction, now you know why. And I’m very happy to say that I can once again reclaim my energy and direct it back to thriving and not just surviving. Please be patient with me if you are in my backlog of sessions. It’s not a big backlog, so it won’t take too much time, but thank you for being patient. I can also return focus to Wholeness of Souls, TLEGG, our Michael Books, and other projects in the works! Thank you for all of your love and patience and understanding and kindness. I’m back. Troy PS - a special thank you and deep gratitude for TeamTLE for helping me keep it together. I could not have survived this without them. I love you all so much.

    MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin. There are very few experiences that every student extant is experiencing at the same time in similar ways. In your lifetimes, this is the first time that all of our students are in a shared experience, both personally and globally. This could be said of the human race as a whole, as well. This may be the first globally-shared experience in human history. There have always been major events that, eventually or indirectly, reach much of humanity, but we know of no globally-shared experience of intensity that was shared in real-time on such a scale as this pandemic. Even World Wars did not reach as pervasively into so many lives as this pandemic at the moment. You are in a Mature Soul world now. If the trajectory continues, this is the first of many events that "bring the world together." We know that many of our students are distressed and concerned. This is normal and natural as there is reason to be distressed and concerned. This is a real and pressing threat that cannot/should not be ignored. Your fears are natural and normal. It is important to remember that while Love can heal and evolve and help you through many things, legitimate fear is never rejected by Love. There is a difference between unwarranted and useless fear that paralyzes you and legitimate fear that informs you of danger. The difference between Love and Fear is that Love includes Fear. The more useless and unwarranted your fears, the more difficult it is to tap into Love, but Love will never reject fear. Love understands Fear. Love knows when it is useful to be aware of danger. We bring this up because a solution to such a thing as a pandemic is not to ignore danger and simply Love the pandemic away. That will not work. So if you want to focus on Love and "Light" and these positive perspectives of this event, it can only be Love if you consider the legitimate fears. There are many positive changes being generated from the response to this pandemic. This is not because the pandemic showed up to teach you anything. It is because you are in the process of putting into effect what you have learned. Mature Souls who have been on the sidelines of humanity and outside of the structures of power are stepping into positions of power and out of the shadows to help humanity through this. We see a major shift in power over the next 20 years because of this. Mature Souls are owning their power rather than conceding it to the outdated Young Soul paradigms of power. Innovations in structural overhaul and integrity for vital systems that are shared among all classes in the population are likely to be a priority for some time to come. Concepts and practical implementations regarding economy, resources, and security are at a Turning Point that look more likely to bring Breakthrough over Breakdown Improved infrastructure of vital communication systems are likely to be prioritized during and after this pandemic as the reality of their fragility is considered and witnessed. Delivery systems are likely to be expanded upon in ways that seek to serve more directly those who are housebound, ill, disabled, etc. This is an example of a minor and marginalized part of society that is eclipsed by "able-ism." With so many dependent upon these delivery systems over time, it suddenly makes sense to improve on these for those who will continue to be dependent upon them. We point out these random scenarios of high probability because it can help reduce the stress and concern from being bombarded with dread and reports of bad behavior or bad news. There are a multitude of great changes coming that are beautiful. This does not remove the reality of the threat, but can help you see your fellow humanity as including humans who will do their best along with you. These are not predictions, but a glimpse of what we see happening around you. Rather than ignore the reality of the threat and the danger and use "Love" to avoid reality, we suggest that our students embrace the reality of the situation, but also the whole of that reality in that you are not alone in wanting to make the world a better place. Yes, there will be those who exploit an event like this, but there are others who are taking advantage in ways that bring long-awaited benefits and change. We think this is one of the most important things we can convey to you at the moment as this is an historic and pivotal event in humanity and most of the parallels that we see rise from this favor many of the greatest Mature and Old Soul ideals. We will open the floor to questions now. ****JANET/DIANE**** DianeHB: In previous sessions regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, you have brought to light some possible scenarios that our current path of trajectory could devolve into. A few of these scenarios you have mentioned include: "cascading catastrophic collapse," the creation of an environment where there is a "100% probability of IS manifestation by December," a path where our economy becomes resource-based, and a possibility that if at least 75% of the global population practices true social distancing than it would be likely, at our earliest, the pandemic could level out by May. DianeHB: Can you clarify and flesh out the paths of trajectory that have the highest probabilities of occurring? Of the scenarios that you have shared with us, what are the probabilities of each scenario taking place in our current trajectory? Could you also indicate higher or lower probabilities of each trajectory by continent if they aren't the same globally? MEntity: Using the differentiated paths above, probabilities at the moment are: Cascading catastrophic collapse = 68% probability; Infinite Soul Manifestation by December = 59%; Resource-based Economy = 97%; Self-disciplined social distancing/Pandemic relief by May = 18%; we will add Enforced social-distancing/Pandemic relief by July, 49%. As this is a global pandemic, these numbers are global, though they may play out in varying paces and ways around the world. DianeHB: What are the current chances of breakthrough vs breakdown? Does breakdown correspond to the Cascading catastrophic collapse/Infinite Soul trajectories? MEntity: Collapse/Infinite Soul paths are Breakdown probabilities. Resource-based Economy paths are Breakthroughs. The timing of the pandemic and how relief comes are independent of whether there is breakdown or breakthrough. It will not matter if this is brief or long-term. What matters is that there is follow-through to actions that benefit humanity. The probabilities are much higher for Breakthrough at the moment. DianeHB: That's good to hear. MEntity: The probabilities for Resource-based Economy are so high that a Breakdown would only delay that, not stop it. Next question DianeHB: There are indications that the US Federal Government may be heading toward a national lockdown. DianeHB: 1. Could Michael comment on whether a U.S. nationwide lockdown is likely and could help us move faster to relief? Based on your 49% probability for enforced social-distancing, seems like that is necessary to bring relief. DianeHB: 2. Are there people in power in our government somewhere who are comprehending the situation now and beginning to respond appropriately? DianeHB: 3. What is the probability that we will now begin to see effective action towards testing and other measures to restrain further "peaks" of pandemic prior to availability of a vaccine, perhaps 18 months away? MEntity: Nationwide lockdown is likely and even two days in this state would make a major difference if truly implemented. We doubt it would be thoroughly implemented, but most would likely participate. 2 weeks would be minimal for truly gaining the most control and footing. DianeHB: How soon do you see this happening? Within the week? Or more? MEntity: There are many contemplating this enforced lockdown, but are considering how to make this appealing for the most effectiveness. Some are contemplating it for exploitative reasons, but most are considering it to be something that is unavoidable. There are people in your government who are comprehending the situation and acting accordingly, but many who are not. The many who are not make it very difficult for those who are. The probability for seeing effective action in testing and restraint look to be on the rise, so we assess that you would see better signs of this over the next couple of weeks. The enforced lockdown is likely within a week or two at the most. If there is not one in place by then, a lockdown would be fairly moot. Next questions DianeHB: Michael, you said this after 9/11 "We will comment for the Mature and Old Souls as to what might be able to be done to "bring some good to the situation". Would you please comment in the same fashion for your students at this time as to what we may do "to bring some good to the situation" during the pandemic and after based on Soul Age and Level. MEntity: To "bring some good" to this pandemic scenario, we can say to return your power back to TIME. One of the main resources that is lost in a Young Soul paradigm is TIME. Energy is prioritized over TIME. You push yourselves to stretch your energy as a resource and neglect the need for time as a resource. Bring some good back to life by giving yourself TIME, not as a gift, but as a right. It is AS important as Energy and when Time is considered with balance to Energy, you gain more of both. When the emphasis is on Energy, even when you have Time, you are not using it. You are focused on where your Energy must go next, or should be going. DianeHB: What does it mean to give ourselves time? MEntity: Cherish your time. Time alone, time together, time in this life, time today. Embrace it like money. Embrace it like a good rest. Embrace it like a good meal. Let yourself HAVE it, be in it. When you give yourself Time, it means you make a choice in how to use it, not just carried along by the momentum of energy expended to get through to some distant point in time. If you are working, be there. If you are at home, alone, be there. If you are spending time with us, here, be here. Let your focus be singular for the amount of time you need or want for whatever you want or need. Make the time to contact loved ones you rarely speak to. Make the time to watch a tv show you had put off. Make the time to read a book. Make the time to create projects or art. Etc. The Mature Soul world is full of emphasis on both Time and Energy because these are the main ingredients for the most effective and beneficial choices. You cannot do more than you can. You do not have more time than you have. You manage energy and you manage time. You never choose one over the other because to do so means making choices that leave a part of you behind. And no one, not even a part of yourself, is left behind in a Mature Soul world. This is the good that you can bring to your world through this: remember to bring yourself along in everything you do. We can take one more question. DianeHB: Without going into providing specific medical advice, is there anything we can do to help support our body's defenses if/when we become infected or prior to getting the virus? Would it be similar to general advice for improving health and the immune system? MEntity: All benefits to the immune system can be helpful, as well as reduction of stress. Stress reduction can come by focusing on the use of your time in ways that please you OR to focus on allowing yourself to be present and kind when you must do what you do not wish to do. Ironically, your best defenses are distance at the moment, but the use of that distance to reconnect with yourself and others is one of the ways to help set your body up for its best defenses. We will conclude here for today, but will have much more to say as this event unfolds. We will be here with you. You are not alone. When we say that "we are here, now" we mean that we are always here with you, but we snap into focus for your "now" when we speak with you through our channels. But we are here, always. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    ENERGY REPORT JULY 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY brings with it a fairly familiar exploration of Spiritualist Attitude that has already been in effect all year but with a direct look at the Negative Pole of BELIEF. The Spiritualist Attitude is all about seeing the world in terms of possibilities and potential, but when those possibilities and potential are not questioned or assessed, or they must be preserved and protected by using denial or delusion, you are left with Beliefs. Belief is when possibilities and potential are assumed to be true with no proof that they are true, and/or no work is put into making them become reality, and/or they are preserved and protected by denial and delusion. Over the course of the year, and in particular over the months of July through September, the impact of interpreting reality only in terms of Belief is likely to be on full display for confrontation. Living in Belief is unsustainable and will always “crash” into reality at some point, forcing a Turning Point, or a confrontation with that which has been cumulatively ignored or denied. SIDE NOTE: collectively and individually, this July through September is where the bulk of Turning Points are likely to occur. This investment in Belief is not limited to younger souls who deny reality as a way to uphold Beliefs, but older souls may also be prone to Belief, as well. While younger souls will deny reality as a way to protect Beliefs, older souls will avoid reality as a way to protect Beliefs. Younger souls will deny a reality exists at all, while older souls do not deny reality, but will avoid that reality as long as they can. When you have a collective population divided by denying reality and avoiding reality, it can make for devastating consequences. In general, July may have opened more quietly and softer than the energy of the past month or so, but it is likely that a sharp moment of realization is to come over the course of this month, August, or September where the importance of Verification, the Positive Pole of Spiritualist, must be confronted. Verification and Validation may look and feel similar, but they serve very different functions and facets of reality. Verification is the process of confirming something is empirically true. Validation is the process of determining what that empirical truth means or how that truth is meaningful. For example, imagine you are a painter who wishes to paint a blue sky. You have a tube of paint with no label in front of you and it could be any color. It is full of potential. Opening the tube and looking at the color is a process of VERIFICATION. You open the tube and can verify that the color is, indeed, blue. It is not red, it is not black, it is not pink or yellow. It is blue. Determining if it is the blue you need for your painted sky is a process of VALIDATION. Just because something is blue does not mean it is is the blue that is for you. Just because something is empirically true does not mean that it is true/meaningful for you. And this is why Verification and Validation must always work together as a path to True Validation, which is when the truth that is meaningful to you works with what is empirically true. We have said before that True Validation is when one’s inner validation is in harmony with external validation. To make this statement clearer, we can say that True Validation is when one’s internal subjective validation is in harmony with one’s external objective verification. For example, it is empirically true, verifiable, that your world is in dire need of healing and recovery after hundreds of years of abuse and exploitation if humans wish to continue using Earth as home. However, many have validated that this dire condition of the planet is not meaningful or of any importance to consider because it does not have any immediate or dire effects on their lives at the moment. This is a valid position to take. It is a choice. It is your choice. It is important to validate in such subjective terms because it helps you to see where you are with yourself and what matters to you. However, for something to be True Validation, it must be met with Verification, or continue to be true in the face of Verification. Denying the reality of Climate Change or avoiding the reality of Climate Change as the only way to sustain the Validation will, eventually, bring dire consequences. Another example might be that it is VALID for many to determine that vaccinations are not for them and that they do not wish to participate in being vaccinated. They have determined this is valid on an internal level and have determined what vaccinations mean to them. However, it is empirically true or VERIFIED that vaccinations are effective and matter, particularly in large populations with increasing proximity and contact. The denial of or avoidance of reality on a mass scale that would reject vaccinations would bring dire consequences. Another example would be that many have Validated that the suffering and oppression of minority or marginalized groups are not meaningful to their lives if they are not the ones suffering and oppressed. They have validated that if they have not witnessed or noticed suffering and oppression, then it has no meaning for them. This is a valid perspective because validation is a matter of determining what matters to you and what is meaningful to you. However, this validation is in direct opposition to the reality of suffering and oppression that exists and is Verified, so it can never be truly valid. One cannot move toward True Validation of these personal truths about suffering and oppression when this personal validation cannot be Verified. This personal Validation can only remain true if there is denial or avoidance of reality. And when this denial and avoidance of reality is on a collective scale, the consequences are dire. However VALID something may be to you, it must be VERIFIED, and that is where the world is moving in terms of its Turning Point this year. What has always seemed to be true on a personal level cannot be sustained without meeting up with and being confronted by the process of Verification. Younger souls will have to consider the reality they have been denying and older souls will have to consider the discomfort and challenge of the reality they may have been avoiding. If this confrontational phase is approached collectively as a Turning Point of important and necessary realization, awareness, and collective responsibility, it would go down in history as one of the first major steps forward for humanity that this era would see. This Turning Point may come quietly or obnoxiously, but it will come and it will bring unprecedented Breakthrough or Breakdown. We are already seeing promising evidence of willingness for most to step forward together toward Breakthrough, with many younger souls already considering the reality they have been denying and older souls already considering sidestepping their discomfort in favor of dealing directly with a reality that has long been avoided. This is Good Work. So far. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): July 20th -- 22nd [potential] NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - This Nexus has the potential to link and merge together “this” reality with those that are already making progress toward social, economic, political, and environmental healing, recovery, and improvement. If this is a Nexus, it would likely be met with a fairly prominent event of significance that is inspiring and sparks an enthusiasm that has been difficult to sustain. If this is not a Nexus, it would likely become an Energy Shift that focuses on a resurgence of awareness for what has not been honestly and effectively addressed by the masses in terms of social, political, economic, and/or environmental issues. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: OVERWHELM IS AN INVITATION - If you find that you are overwhelmed, it can be helpful to consider this as an invitation, rather than as a burden. When you are overwhelmed, it is an invitation to slow down, breathe, relax, and CHOOSE ONE THING. In terms of this Energy Report, this is about the Goal of the year, Submission. Submission is a process of determining where one is most effective and where one’s focus of energy is most reciprocated. This means that it can be helpful in a year with an ocean of causes and matters to consider, both personally and collectively, to choose ONE and allow yourself to be everything to that cause or matter, even if this is only a private and personal level for that day. LIFE TASKS HOLD ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS UNASKED - This is a good month for revisiting, refining, updating, and clarifying your Life Task, or True Work. Your Life Task is hooked into everything you do and is being served in some way by everything you do. Take a look at your Life Task and see how your daily life has been contributing to or neglecting the Task and consider asking yourself if and how you can emphasize its fulfillment.

    ENERGY REPORT JUNE 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) JUNE arrives with some amount of relief from the previous months. For many this will feel like a tentative possibility for movement forward in progress and for others this will feel like a chance to catch one’s breath and catch up with oneself. For those who experience this month as a sense of movement forward, this will be a time of discernment and clarity about what is a valid movement forward and what is a false movement forward. For example, there are valid movements forward in terms of racial equality and changes that have been long overdue, but there are false movements forward regarding the return to “normal” life in a pandemic. There is likely valid movement forward in your personal awareness and convictions to be a part of beneficial change in the world and in your life, but there may be false movement forward in the assumptions about how easy that may be or how difficult that may be. For those who feel as if this month is a moment to catch your breath and catch up with yourself, you may experience this in one or both of two ways: For some, you may suddenly find that the grief of the last 2 months to 4 years is finally getting a chance to move up and out and through you. This can be disorienting and unsettling but it is a healthy process that is happening. You do not have to understand what is being processed, but let the emotions flow and find your support in friends and loved ones. You may not be able to explain or talk it out, but let yourself be with others in some way as you grieve. It will pass. For some, you may suddenly feel as if a weight is lifted and that it is now time to “get to work.” This is a time of inspiration and activity that brings you back to your Life Task, Agreements, and updating your Sequences, and Vectors. This may be a month of higher energy and focus and clarity. For some, there will be a mix of both of the above. In general, June brings to close the emphasis on POWER MODE and this would likely come in a distinctly loud way or a decidedly quiet way. As the end of June arrives, this would likely be clearer as to whether collective Power has moved into the Positive Pole or the Negative Pole. The Positive Pole tends to be a quiet power that is all about the honoring of presence and authority as a dynamic that is shared. The Negative Pole tends to bring loud power that is all about demanding that others see your power and then using that power to put people in their place and keep them there. As you can see from recent uprisings, the Negative Pole is not a “bad” thing and can be used as a way to move to the Positive Pole. Those who have been under the thumb of oppression ALWAYS have to rise from the Negative Pole using “loud” power to get back to the Positive Pole of quiet power. This uprising is working. The protests are working. Your future has changed dramatically over the past 3 weeks. The Energy Shift on May 5th was fully actualized in the responses to the death of the Magnetic Server known as George Floyd. The Truth and Consequences of unchecked and ignored oppression became the unapologetic and crystal clear message that was streamlined into a momentum that has changed the future for everyone. It is not over, but the trajectory is clear and your lifetime is witnessing the very start of a very real world of racial equality. There may always be obstacles and issues, of course, but the Power has shifted and there is no going back. DREAMS may be taking on odd directions that may feel as if instructions, recipes, or directions are being shared, played out, or demonstrated. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): June 25th -- Energy Shift -- POSSIBILITY - This Energy Shift kicks in the emphasis of Spiritualist Attitude and the collective assessment of what is possible beyond what was once assumed to be permanent limitations, both in your personal lives and collective lives. It may also bring a wave of backlashes from those who are the most resistant to evolution. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JUNE: WE MATTER - Last month it was helpful to consider that the truth matters, and we often repeat to you that YOU matter, but June is about how “we” matter. Practice your awareness of what circles you are a part of and how your presence and power are shared among others. Talk to each other about what you need and what you want and if there are changes and exchanges that need to be implemented for each other and together. BONUS MATERIAL: THE WORLD IS FOREVER CHANGED FOR THE GOOD: An Addendum As a channel who feels with every fiber of his being a sense of responsibility for upholding high standards for clarity, consistency, and real-world applicable use of his channeling, I feel like I should add in a quick note about the amazing news from Michael that we are making a difference. In all honesty, I do not think I need to say this because all of you already know this, but just to be clear... we are far from done. FAR from done. We can celebrate that we are making a difference, but we are far from done. It ain't over til it's over. When I finally got around to reading the report, I cried. A lot. (Channeling a report is very different from reading it, by the way, and I rarely read my channeling. I'm awful about that.) Anyway, relief, inspiration, promise, and meaningfulness washed over me and helped further lift me out of probably the most depressing 6 months of my life. But I had to ask Michael, "Really?" A part of me felt this immediate cynical response to this good news and I feared it would be interpreted by a lot of us white people as... "phew, well howdy doody! ...slap ourselves on the back! We did it! We saved the Black people!!" LOL -- NO ONE here is reacting like that, so this is just backstory for why I asked Michael for further elaboration. I asked: OK...Where do we go with this? What do we do now? FROM MICHAEL: As we have said in several of our recent deliveries of reports to you -- forward is where to go, and continued action is what you do now. This is not the first turning point for this cause. The cause that is currently represented by Black Lives Matter has had previous turning points that were each in response to previous variations of oppression, such as abolition of slavery in response to slavery and integration in response to segregation. Black Lives Matter and the current turning point are in response to social and economic oppression. Though this movement was launched and fueled by the violence against Black Americans, it is all about a movement toward simply and finally being comfortable and safe while living in one's skin. Everything else is details. They are important details that cannot be ignored, and while this movement must directly address the practical and physical elements of existence, this movement is about a profound turning point in the emotional lives of those of you who are born Black. It is about the comfort of existence that is stripped from the life of nearly every Black life. It is about a movement forward into a world where every Black man, woman, child, queer, or trans enters their day with an assumption of safety and confidence, not the weight of defense, strategy, exhaustion, code switching, and perpetual readiness to fight or flight, fear of being imprisoned, discriminated against, or murdered. This turning point affects all people of color. So while you fight for the details that will improve the lives of each other, remember that this is, at the fundamental core of this turning point, a cause that will finally bring comfort to the mere act of living and existing. This is an important undertone to acknowledge in this fight and this cause. It is what is moving many to tears as they finally see the world around them declaring that it is okay and safe to exist together and that until it is 100% safe, nearly everyone will fight and stand for this cause. It is a return "home" to humanity on a level that has been all but forgotten as impossible. Every marginalized and oppressed group knows this feeling when the turning point comes, and it can become quite moving when it is a global turning point such as this. Every turning point is a leap forward, but as you can see from previous turning points, a leap takes all to a new tier that must be addressed. As racial inequality fades, and social and economic comforts rise, there will one day be a new tier to address, but with each successful turning point, the next tier comes faster and easier and with much less resistance. It may not look like it during the days in which a cause is heightened in emphasis and the fight escalates painfully, but humanity does learn and grow. We have yet to see a regression. Progress and evolution come to all, even to those who resist. It cannot be forced on a personal level, but it can be forced on a collective level when enough of you are willing. Those who straggle will catch up, but no individual or collective are ever obligated to sit and wait for everyone to wake up before moving forward. Our short answer then is to keep moving forward and continue the actions necessary. And we remind you that it is not always easy, but it never has to be complicated. ***

    ENERGY REPORT November 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) NOVEMBER brings a deeper dive into Self-Destruction as nearly every student begins to ponder the existential point and value of living and life. Pondering one’s existence is not self-destructive in itself, but when one begins to question the value of one’s existence and the point of one’s existence using superficial, limited, and temporary values and points, it can lead one down a spiraling path of Self-Destruction. For example, it can become too easy to conclude that life has no value or point if you do not have a stable income, defined career, intimate relationship, status, recognition, enough praise, attractive body, stable health, desired material possessions, etc. Whether in the worst of conditions or the best of conditions, if one defines the value and point of existence by these superficial and temporary conditions, one will invariably spiral into defeat, depression, and destruction. As November increases the emphasis on Self-Destruction, some may find themselves having to manually and with great effort recover or recreate the seeds of value and meaning that are inherent in existence. The noise and chaos of life can sometimes cause one to lose a sense of direction, destination, meaning, and value, but all of that chaos and noise is a PART of life, not the definition of life. You may not have direct control over chaos around you or within you because that is the very nature of chaos, but most of you do have control over how you navigate through this chaos. Your own motivations, intentions, and destination matter and so you must recover or recreate these when you feel you have lost them. You cannot wait for these to be returned to you amid the chaos. You cannot expect the chaos to calm or end before you recover or recreate your own motivations, values, and meaning. The chaos surrounding a path is not the path, itself. The chaos surrounding a path is not the same as your destination, motivation, or your intent. Chaos exists. Beauty exists. Suffering exists. Pleasure exists. Oppression exists. Freedom exists. Life exists. Death exists. And amid all of this: You exist. There will always be some form of Chaos. There will always be some form of Beauty. There will always be some form of Suffering, Pleasure, Oppression, Freedom, Life, and Death in the world. And there will always be some form of You. You exist AMONG everything that exists. You do not exist AS everything that exists. In other words, take heart, take pause, take a deep breathe, and allow room for all of existence, including your own. All that exists is going to exist whether you like it or not. You are going to exist whether you like it or not. You can help relieve suffering. You can help bring pleasure. You can help fight oppression. You can help secure freedoms. You can ride out chaos and you can bring beauty. You can be full of life and, eventually, die. But your value, meaning, and point of your existence will be entirely independent of the value, meaning, and point of every other thing or person in existence. And so it does not serve you in any way to diminish the value, meaning, and point of your existence just because other things exist that have little to no value, meaning, or point to you. It can often seem that when suffering, oppression, chaos, and death are witnessed or experienced that the value, meaning, and point of life are lost. The truth is quite the opposite. The value, meaning, and point of life must be upheld and nurtured and celebrated even more when in the face of suffering, oppression, chaos, or death. If you feel you have lost the meaning, value, and point, it is only because you have defined those terms incorrectly. You have a right and a responsibility to own and celebrate your existence even as you navigate the best and worst of life. If you find that you are questioning the value, meaning, and point of you and your life, STOP. That is the only solution. You will never find a satisfying or conclusive answer to such an absurd line of questioning. Exist among existence and get on with your life and living. It is your right. It is your responsibility. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): November 12th - 15th -- Energy Shift -- GROUNDING -- This shift brings with it a wave of grounding energy that would be for “burning off” excess static and buzzing, if you will, that have been clouding and corrupting perceptions. This would be a biological grounding, so it would mean that the body would be most affected. For those who find themselves affected by this grounding wave, there may be extreme agitation, distraction, restlessness, and/or burst of vivid dreaming activity. If this grounding is successful, it would mean that in the days that follow, a sense of recovering focus and direction and motivation may come to those who have had a difficult time sustaining focus, direction, and motivation. November 25th - 27th -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - Yet another shift away from Self-Destruction on a grander scale, and a more confined and defined circle of Self-Destruction emerges, particularly among corrupt Baby and Young Soul leaders. However quiet or obvious this shift, it is likely the “beginning of the end” for a handful of authoritarian fragments who can no longer sustain their position in a Mature Paradigm. On a more personal level, our students would likely find this Convergence to be one that brings about some levity, clarity, focus and even enthusiasm for “the future.” HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER NOVEMBER: I EXIST AMONG, NOT AS - Emphasizing our message in the earlier part of this report, it can be helpful to remember this phrase as you navigate all of your experiences, relationships, feelings, emotions, struggles, triumphs, etc. You exist AMONG these things, not AS these things. You HAVE feelings, you are not your feelings. You HAVE experiences, you are not those experiences. You exist among the chaos and beauty of life, and you can contribute chaos or beauty, and you can experience chaos or beauty, but you are not these things. When you allow room for all that exists, you allow room for your own existence, and then you can participate in all of these things in more effective and meaningful ways.

    ENERGY REPORT March 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) MARCH comes with a rather deep dive into Submission for many as a collective process intensifies for determining a dedicated direction forward. This means that many will be determined more seriously than usual to commit to the most effective and reciprocal paths and/or people representing “the future.” This means that March may be a time of emphasized division and clarified devotion for many as they commit to the direction that they feel best represents their desired future. When Submission seeks a direction of Devotion, the Positive Pole, it often starts with Subservience, the Negative Pole, as one does not always know the whole truth or picture of a person or path before committing to it. This means it can be helpful to remember that many will be “blindly” devoting themselves in directions that may or may not prove valuable to all. The only way to know if one can truly move into Devotion is to know if full commitment creates a reciprocal benefit. As April draws closer, a shift of emphasis comes to POWER MODE and this is likely to come first in the emphasis on exploring Oppression, the Negative Pole. A wave of conflict or emphasis on the history of conflict between the oppressed and the oppressors, the conflict between those who are returning themselves to authority over their own lives, the Positive Pole, and those who seek to be authoritarian over others’ lives. The world may look quite divided over the coming months, but this is a clarification process where those who seek to nurture shared empowerment are coming together as those who seek individual power over others come apart. As long as those who can share and nurture empowerment continue to come together, Submission will hold its Positive Pole of Devotion. This is because the greatest and clearest and most beneficial path for all is the Devotion to each other. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): March 23rd -- Energy Shift -- Escalation or Calm - This Energy Shift comes with pivotal energy that either leads to an escalation and intensity of events or a shift into a sense of stepping back, pausing, and knowing peace and calm is not out of reach. This is true both on personal and global levels. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MARCH: BLINDLY FORWARD IS STILL FORWARD - There are times when there is no way or no easy way to see where one is going or where the world is headed, but one must still move forward. A wall may be hit, a curve may be met, a crash may happen, but moving forward is sometimes more important than how one moves forward, what one finds or creates as one moves forward. Those who are of the more progressive, inclusive, and loving know this. Our older soul students know this. We expect this same consideration will be needed when watching the world around you unfold over the year ahead. If you are moving forward, you are on board with evolution. Keep in mind that moving forward can sometimes mean stopping and returning to a path that has been lost. This stop and return is not a move backward, but a return forward.

    MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. The 21st Century is a pivotal century. There are pivotal years throughout history and sometimes there is a century that is pivotal. This is one of them. It could be said that every year and even every century is pivotal in many ways, but what we mean by this is that the Human Race will move in a new direction that is unlike any direction in the past and is changing in way that is a point of no return. One would think that such events as war and great catastrophe may change the course of humanity, and these do have their effects, but the effects on direction of which we speak are about something more insidious and pervasive. If war, famine, and catastrophe could be said to redirect humanity's physical direction on Earth, then the effects of which we speak are about a metaphysical direction. For example, the last pivotal century was the 1st Century AD with the onset of organized religion, particularly monotheism. This changed humanity in unalterable ways that would shape everything, including war, famine, disease, and catastrophes for the next 19 Centuries. The effects of that pivotal Century remain intact, but will quickly be replaced by the 21st Century events. 2019 is a pivotal year within a pivotal Century and we think this is the year in which the more profound anchoring of effects will take place. It could be said that 2019 may see the "final blows" to key institutions that have been long overdue in terms of their holding back progression of humanity, as well as the "successful launches" of various key patterns that are part of the pivotal shift in humanity toward living as Mature Souls. This kind of pivotal year is not always obvious or dramatic, but it may be fairly dramatic as that is part of the Mature Soul world. All great changes will likely come with a fair amount of flourish. As this is an Artisan year, the key elements at play here would be in the collapse of the Delusional and rise of the Creative. The problem and challenge of Delusional is that it can look normal and be normalized. The very nature of Delusion means that those who are delusional cannot see the delusion. For most Delusional patterns, a crash is necessary. A complete shock to the system. A full disruption of patterns. The irony in the spectrum between Creativity and Delusion is that Creativity will be used, no matter what. The difference between Creativity as a Positive Pole and Creativity as a Negative Pole is the depth of harm done with the Creativity. Creativity as healing is Positive while Creativity as harm is Negative. The difference between Destruction and Delusion is that Delusion does not see the destruction. This is why Self-Destruction is the Chief Feature for this year. The Delusional elements of society are headed toward Self-Destruction. And they do not see it coming. When we speak of delusional elements of society, our Older Soul students are not exempt. There are layers of society within which each of you participate and exist in various ways and you may be wide awake and creative in many areas and quite delusional in another. We do not see a single student moving through 2019 without confronting one element of delusion in the life that has to collapse and change. The "State of the Planet" at this point is in a place where the changes that are necessary for humanity to survive MUST be implemented to some great degree as soon as possible or it is suicide for the species. We do not see the patterns leaning toward suicide, but your species is playing out the ideas in many ways that are helping with your survival. It is of no coincidence that several films have come in the past 5 to 10 years where the masses either turn on each other in unprecedented and mindless waves of violence or turn on themselves in unprecedented waves of violent suicide. Films are the equivalent of waking dreams to process probabilities. It is also of no coincidence that beloved and popular series have come about regarding time travel and the effort to steer and wake up humanity before it is "too late." These themes are not new, but there is a relevance and resonance to them on a new scale. If this year could be described in a phrase, it would be RAPID REALIZATION. This is why the Attitude of 2019 is that of Realist. This is a year of realization, of waking up, or falling so deeply asleep that one does not wake up, so to speak. Many of our students are well ahead of this pattern and have been working on this for some time, but you will now see this happening on a more epic and obvious scale in the world around you and among people whom you would never have suspected were interested in waking up. These awakenings may be mocked or shunned or said to be "too late," but it would be valuable to everyone to embrace even the most vile of individuals who suddenly speak to having a realization. Most realizations come from OBJECTIVITY. Surprisingly, Objectivity fosters Empathy. Objectivity allows for one to see oneself relative to another thing or person, and vice versa. The Overleaves in place for this year are the Overleaves with which most of humanity determined as the fastest and most definitive route toward the greatest probabilities. CREATIVITY, ACTION, FREEDOM, CLARITY, and OBJECTIVITY. What we have described above is quite broad and even vague, but that is because it is just that. We do not know the direction this will go and this will be one of the years in which the patterns we see have the most surprising and spontaneous shifts away from what we thought would come. We do know that this pivotal year and pivotal Century are all about SOCIAL EQUALITY. On the most metaphysical and subatomic levels of humanity and reality, the aim is for reality to be SHARED, not COMPARED, for humans to return to being a part of Earth before launching inevitably to the stars. We will leave you with this rather broad and open look at the State of the Planet for 2019 because for all of its mystery and intrigue or ominous and concerned tone, it is fairly simple: Humanity is waking up again in a new way in a new time with new power on a new scale. ***FLOOR IS NOW OPEN FOR QUESTIONS*** Uma: Michael, last January 17, you said that impeachment/indictment for fuckface was between 56-58%. Does this still stand? or now that there is a Democrat majority in the House, has the probability increased? Does impeachment still appear to be the more likely? And what is the probability for indictment for his family? Ivanka? Don Jr? Jared? After that lofty session, I'm still here in the weeds of all this and hoping we are on a good trajectory. MEntity: Probability for Impeachment is around 70% but probability for re-election is at 3% so there is a range of options here that will work across the board in halting the influence and power of this tyrannical individual. Probability of indictment for the individuals listed are at 78%. This is a most unpredictable year and time, in general, on top of the usual unpredictability, but we give you the numbers we see. Uma: Great! Thank you! NEXT Daniela: Hi Michael. In July 2017 I asked you about the Putin/Trump Pentagon Configuration. You said the Configuration's Task is Global Unification and you identified the positions as: Daniela: Position 1--Love-- Steve Bannon Daniela: Position 2-- Knowledge-- lesser-known or unknown Sage close to Putin Daniela: Position 3-- Power-- Putin Daniela: Position 4--Support-- Donald Jr. Daniela: Position 5-- Revolutionary/Eccentric-- Trump Daniela: Can you speak to how the Configuration has fared over the last 18 months? For example, has it stabilized or is it still highly volatile? Have any of the positions been vacated and filled by others? MEntity: The Configuration is still intact but more volatile. Positions remained filled by the same individuals. Death of one member involved here will be the end of this Configuration for the lifetiime. NEXT SusanF: Michael, Are there any specific arcs of experience, from the planet perspective will likely come to close during this year? And are there specific new arcs being initiated ? How long are those arcs? MEntity: Organized religion has come to a close. It will not disappear, but that arc of influence and status that shaped the world is over. There will be transition, but it is over. Oppression as a form of power is over. This may not seem possible, but it is over. Oppression will always exist in some form in some relationships, but not as a global form of power. Again, this will require transition and it will not disappear, but it is over. Prosperity inequality is over. Again, this may seem absurd, but we are speaking in terms of massive arcs coming to a close because they will not work. The practical implementation and stable reality around this shift away from these arcs would likely not be seen as fully anchored until around 2050. But you are alive in a time that is a part of the ending of those arcs. As for new arcs, we would say that SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY is locked in as an arc that would shape the world for centuries to come. This started with "political correctness" and grand experiments in "social media" and exploded in social justice and moves rapidly toward such things as resource-based economy. We can explore the ending and beginning of arcs in further detail in more exchanges over 2019. NEXT DianeHB: From Tex: I worry about the gap between the current economic system and the resource-based economy. I worry about the confusion and instability. What are our probabilities for transitioning from one economy to the other? MEntity: From what we have seen, this begins to shift in small, closed communities first, then cities, then states, then countries. The transition is slow at first and requires a great period of time for true verification of its promise, but comes far more naturally than expected. The results are quite appealing and desirable which makes it easier to propagate, and the systems we have seen are scalable and interlockable, so to speak, so that larger communities and cities have an easier time of implementing. If this were to be implemented now, it would be shunned and even ignored, and in fact that has been the case, but presentation and attempts for implementation in 5 to 20 years comes to a new generation where social responsibility is fully understood and considered a valuable direction. DianeHB: Tex says thanks MEntity: We will have much more to say over 2019 regarding pivotal events and energies. We are quite excited, though in our own way. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    ENERGY REPORT February 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) FEBRUARY comes with a strange mix of calm and chaos as the energy begins to shift away from Delusion and toward Creativity. Personal, Community and Global Delusions are starting to break down and collapse and find little support, while Personal, Community, and Global Creativity begins to gain some support, traction, and momentum as a solution to the array of delusions that have been anchored in various populations for decades and even centuries. For most of our students, February and March may feel a bit like a “hurry up and wait” energy that has a calm anxiousness about it, a frenetic and frustrating energy but also a sense of progress. This comes from the mix of Flow and Moving Center in effect as populations dance between the negative and positive poles. We do not have a lot to report for February but can say that it will be helpful for our students to keep in mind that progress is happening and is moving toward desired directions in personal, community, and global terms, but this may not be obvious in this wave of calm chaos transition. In other words, a helpful February phrase might be to just “hang in there.” DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): February 19th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- ENERGY BOOST - This looks like a wave of energy that may amplify energy, events, an intensity in some area of the personal life and world events. We do not know how this will play out, but it is a sense of acceleration. NO NEXUS HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER FEBRUARY: BE BEYOND - There are times in a life and on a planet when events or people or relationships seem at a standstill or terribly disrupted or unending or boring or too intense, even too painful, but it will always help you to BE BEYOND THIS. What we mean is that it is okay to know you exist beyond whatever you are experiencing now. You need not escape into that future, but you exist in that future. For example, there is a future when the King known as Donald Trump is no longer in power. It exists. And you exist there, as well. It is okay to know this and to connect to the anchor of this truth. There is a future where you have the job you seek. There is a future where you are happy again. There is a future where you fall in love again. There is a future when your pain is relieved. And so on. Let yourself BE BEYOND the moment without losing yourself to the moment. Let yourself be in the moment, but not lost to it when you are overwhelmed. Let yourself connect to the greater patterns of your life so that you can more easily navigate your way toward more desired outcomes. Be Beyond.

    This is the transcript from the 2017 Michael Speaks at TruthLoveEnergy Great Gathering in the format of "Ask Michael." This was generously transcribed from a live recording by @DanielaS. NOTE: This was a weird weekend of live channeling that revealed some weak moments in holding my full trance. In this transcript, you can see this in the initial transition where I "thought" a funny thought but it came out of my mouth as part of the channeling delivery. Michael always calls these moments out, but it's a really weird experience. I don't realize it's happening. Also, note that vocal channeling comes out more conversational and unrefined than the usual text channeling. Enjoy! TLEGG 2017 Ask Michael 2017-09-30 Channeled by Troy Tolley MEntity: OK. Bear with us for a moment. Hello to each of you. We are here now. We will begin with a comment that reminds you of the very premise of our teaching, and that is that while there are many factors involved in your being here for this gathering and many factors that could be designated as synchronistic and magical, we remind you that you are here because you choose to be. Everything that got you here for this gathering to be with your fellow Cadre and Entity members and students of our teaching is all because of your choice and your actions to follow up on those choices. We remind you of this because it can be very easy to dismiss the power of your choice and the power of your actions that it took to be here, as well as the collaborations among all of you to make this happen. So, we just wanted to start off with that reminder that if there is nothing else learned in our exchanges, the one thing that we wish for our students to carry forward is that power of choice because things like this get to happen when you follow up with action. And with that, we can begin with your questions or you can say hello to us. All: Hello! Hello, Michael! Daniela: What is “Good Work?” Is there such a thing as “Not Good Work?” MEntity: Oh, good. An easy one. [Laughter] It takes a little bit of time for the circuit to get stronger through our channel. We use the term Good Work, not as a compliment. [A loud sound of a phone dropping on the floor] That is not Good Work. [Laughter] This was an example of Troy still being there. [Laughter] That was not our humor. [Laughter] We use the term Good Work to reference anything that you do that in some way supports your Life Task, which is quite a broad spectrum of actions that you can take. But when we tend to lean towards that phrase it is likely a very specific action that you have taken in some way that very directly benefits your Life Task. There is really no such thing as Not Good Work, but there is such a thing as No Work. There are many things that an individual fragment can do in the life that do not support the Life Task. It would be unfair to describe that as Not Good Work because you have a choice. And if you were to be reprimanded or in any way scolded with terminology that indicates your needing to correct choices, we would not be very good teachers, in our opinion. So, we use the term Good Work when you are doing something to support your Life Task. And we do this because if you see a pattern in our comments referencing what is Good Work then you may see patterns yourself in what more you can do to support your Life Task. BobbyA: I would love for Michael to cover why it is so problematic for Concurrents to meet or come across each other. I would think it would be no different than any two other Personalities since there would have to be something there in common to even generate an interest to begin with. Yeah, having the same Essence “might” be the catalyst but I still don't understand why it’s often treated like “worlds colliding.” MEntity: Concurrents can cross paths and meet, but the difference between Concurrents and individual fragments is the amount of buffering between your Personalities. When fragments come across each other, regardless of their ancient bond and their ancient knowledge of each other, there is a built-in buffer that allows the Personalities to gauge and decide and participate in the choice in how close and how fast that bond is revealed or explored. When Concurrents cross paths this tends to be lost, it is bypassed. There is a lack of a buffer between Concurrents that can short-circuit the individual Personalities involved because it is an immediate displacement of the Personality and it is terrifying. The closest to this is when Essence Twins cross paths. That same experience can come about in a very mild version, but when Concurrents cross paths they simply do not have the built-in buffer that most individual fragments do. To explain why that's the case is something that we do not have terminology for in our teaching. But that is why, because there is simply no buffer between the Personalities. We are trying to come up with an analogy. BobbyA: Did that ever happen with any of your own Personalities, that you could use to describe the experience? MEntity: The closest that we can come up with in describing the experience is a kaleidoscoping of our perspectives or a funhouse mirror of sorts that is a reflection within a reflection within a reflection, and the processing that is required to make sense of that overpowers the Personalities in a number of ways. We do not know why there is less of a buffer. We think it has to do with simply the nature of your being of the exact same Essence and there is no math to divide you. There is no mathematical divide in the same way that Entity members have their own mathematical address. You and your Concurrents share the exact address. When you come across each other, there is no math being negotiated. That is the closest way we can describe why it does not happen. You are already the same equation. This may not have been a fully satisfying answer, but it is close enough for now. BobbyK: All right, our next question comes from Uma. MEntity: We have more to say for a moment. We got something in. The other reason is not so much to explain why it is difficult for Concurrents to be in the same space, but there is a reason for it in terms of the Concurrents' existence is solely for the sake of covering different territories in the same space and time. And if Concurrents were to congregate in the same space, that point is lost to the reasons for the Concurrents in the first place. And so, this built-in repulsion is in effect to keep Concurrents from being in the same space too closely and in the same time because the point would then be lost for why both were existing. The point of Concurrents is to cover more territory for more experience. Uma: This has been on my mind since I read it: What are all the elements of the teaching and how completely and accurately has each element been accessed? What elements have we not accessed as yet? Looking at the Michael material that is already ‘out there,’ what kind of book or other ‘publication’ does Michael see as being the most productive and fruitful in terms of spreading the Teachings? (This is a selfish question because I am obsessed with how I will find the Teachings in my next lifetime.) [Laughter] MEntity: Now that is a good question. [Laughter] Because we have already delineated these Elements and Waves in other deliveries [see The 7 Waves & Elements of the Michael Teachings], the short answer is that you are currently in the True Application of our teaching in the Application Element phase of our teaching. This is the third phase. The 7 Elements of our teaching carry within each of these the 7 Waves that reflect the larger pattern of Elements. And so, when you are in the Application Element and you get to the Application Wave, that is what we describe as True Application. So, since 2010, our students who have stuck around have taken on the tasks of True Application of our teaching. This means diving deeper into the practical elements of the teaching, living out these elements of the teaching; in particular, in ways that allow you to exist in the world among those who are not our students and still find common ground in vocabulary and exchange and intimacy. If you have the experience of being, living our teaching, and it is a divide between yourself and another then you are part of that process of True Application of our teaching. You are trying to find a way to live the teaching in ways that do not divide you from others but in a way of growing closer to them. If you find that that is the case, that you are divided or there is a wall that is built, that is part of your Agreement with us is to try to explore that wall, that divide and find your way through that. It is also a process of discovery that Application does not necessarily mean sharing in terminology, sharing in enthusiasm, sharing your passion for this teaching, but finding ways that help other people based on what you are learning, based on how you are growing. It is not about recruitment, it is about Application. So, you are in this phase, and it only began in 2010. It will probably last for another 50 years before moving into the Recording phase. The actual permanence of our teaching, in a form that can be found in its same form in future lifetimes that extend across centuries, probably will not occur for another 100-300 years. So, while you are documenting in books and websites and working to keep alive some reference that the next life can find, the actual True Recording will not occur until we have the technology available to us on your planet and among you to do True Recording. So, right now you are in True Application and you will move into a Wave of Recording in about 50 years, at this point. Did this answer your question? Uma: I'll be 125. [Laughter] MEntity: We can say that we have yet to have lost a student. We always find you. You always find us. It is not always without obstacles because of different scenarios and climates that occur during incarnational phases. But we eventually come back around to reunions, such as now. BobbyA: Since we have printed material now and other mediums like that, do you have any idea what that technology might look like in that time period? MEntity: During the True Recording period or during the Recording period of this Element? BobbyA: During the future Recording. The Application Recording. Or, I'm sorry, Recording stage. You know what I'm saying. [Laughter] I'm confused. MEntity: Within this Application Element, you are asking what the Recording phase will be like after the True Application. James: So, the 50-year or the 300-year? Were you asking that? MEntity: The 50-year will be an evolution towards Artificial Intelligence that will allow us to begin a process of communicating through technology. There will be, at this point, a high probability that we can see where the Artificial Intelligence evolves to a place of subtle receptivity that allows for communication from beyond the understanding of the Physical Plane, and we can manipulate that in a way that can communicate. And we will be able to speak to our students in various ways through Artificial Intelligence. That will be the next Recording Wave of this particular Application Element. The True Recording, we are not certain how that will go because it is far enough into the future that there are quite a few variables. But there is likely to be some form of immersive experience that will allow you to access each other, access a representative of our communication, in a space that is difficult to describe with the terminology available to us now, but could be closest to being understood as holographic chambers that allow for that exchange to occur on a constant basis, on a regular basis, in a way that affects our teaching in a new way. BobbyK: When all the Elements of the teaching are complete, would you then stop teaching at this point? MEntity: We would probably be done with our students in the sense that they will be cycling off to a proportion that no longer requires our exchanges and the fulfillment of our Agreements will have been completed. So, yes, we will still be teachers to some extent because all of you will be, and all of us will continue to be to some version or another of consciousness. But, yes, that would be close to what you could describe as the end of our teaching, in the way you understand it now. Brian: You once mentioned about Waves of your teaching and about future generations. I am curious, what Wave of the teachings are we in right now and what Agreements are being made for the next generation of Michael channels? Is there anyone in particular, either in our existing Michael group or another Michael group, that is learning to “pick up the torch,” as a future Michael channel for the younger generation? MEntity: Yes, we addressed some of that. As for the next wave of channels, we cannot point to individuals because that would remove their choice and also put undue pressure and expectation on an individual, and that is treading too close to a karmic territory. But we do have a set of at least 12 individuals who are working with us in a way that will emerge if they follow their inclination and impulses and continue to do the work required for allowing our communication to come through. So, yes, we are working with a new set of channels, some of which are already “on the scene” and will be more likely to find their footing in the next 2-5 years in a way that you can say, Oh, I remember when Michael mentioned this. Did we cover that question? Brian: That works! DianeHB: You've mentioned in various future life sessions that our future lives have asked about and know about our present lives happening now. [Laughter] I’m wondering if TLE's archive of sessions and writings survive to that time (between 100-300 years from now) and if future students know about us. Do they know which ones of us are their past lives? Brian: My apologies to my future self! [Laughter] MEntity: It is quite beautiful and moving to us to have the capacity to work with our students in their various incarnations at the same time while you are existing within a linear space to see that evolution occur in a way that is not possible to experience while in a physical form or even as an individual fragment in many ways. It's fascinating to us because when we are working with the future versions of you in 300 years they are only one probability of you. There are other versions of you that we may or may not have contact with. But when we have referenced your future lives in 100-300 years, those [Troy starts to laugh] future versions of you — we do not know why the channel is laughing — are more aware of you than you are of them. We will say that. We have far more to work with in that time that allows us to give greater references that are more capable of being validated in a way that is quite profound to those “you” in the future. In other words, they know all about you. [Laughter] Cyprus: I have a question. MEntity: We are — Cyprus: We've talked about time travel where they come back to, like, look at us, or peek at us, or whatever, vacation. Are those, the 100-300 years, are those people able to do that at that point? Or is that much farther in the future? MEntity: Much farther. Cyprus: Martha? Martha: No, I was waving to the people who are watching us from the future. [Laughter] MEntity: We feel as if we lost the second part of the question. There was more. The archives. Yes. BobbyK: I'm wondering if TLE's archive of sessions and writings survive to that time. MEntity: Yes. The work that is in process currently and will continue over the next 20 years is vital to the references that are accessible to those future lifetimes, referencing you here. It does survive and there is more to come. AnnH: And this is related to finding out about a future life of mine with Geraldine -- Hi, Geraldine! -- where we work on the so-called Timeline, Geraldine's Timeline, together in a library. Is that one of those archives that is going to continue, I take it? I know that! Fuck, yeah. [Laughter] MEntity: Yes. AnnH: I know it's not just Geraldine and me. I'm sure there are other people as well. MEntity: Yes. We are telling your future selves about this gathering as we speak. [Laughter] We can continue with your questions. Kerrin: Are we still on this planet in 300 years in the future? [Laughter] Are we on Mars? Are we still on Earth? MEntity: There is an exploration that has gone beyond your Earth, yes. But you are still here, yes. Brian: You mentioned that you're, from your perspective, currently in contact with our future gathering. And you say you are discussing us. May I ask, what are you telling them? [Laughter] MEntity: We think this is why Troy's body is reacting with the humor because it is a paradox to be experiencing this in his body. It is an unusual feeling. We are just mentioning to them the curiosity and fascination of these selves. The conversation was prompted by a session that we are working with several from this group at the moment discussing how a past life has helped to heal their current life. And the work you are doing here is part of what makes life heal there. And this is what we were referencing when we said that it is quite beautiful and moving to us because when we can -- and you can see this as well when you are dead [Laughter] -- that the tapestry of energy that is woven among your Personalities across time and how they work together is something that cannot be replicated in beauty in the Physical Plane. It is quite a mosaic. So, what you do and what you choose in this life is not just about you, although it is, because the “you” in the future is also you. But you matter on a larger scale than is easy to remember when you are in such dense, local bodies. So, we can encourage you to remember this and breathe in that sense of expansion when you have a moment. We can take your next question. Maureen: I still wonder about the timing of Obama's presidency and then our “fall from grace” into Trump's greedy little fingers. [Laughter] Is this some form of random, political Russian roulette that will make sense in the future, when we look back at this time? Are these extremes of Obama/Trump now in motion as an energetic “system” of some kind, in our collective consciousness, perhaps like a pendulum, as a springboard to 2020's Infinite Soul manifestations? MEntity: There is nothing orchestrated about this. It is purely the terror, the fear that always precedes a shift in paradigm. And the shift to the Mature Soul Age IS here. You are in it. And it cannot be stopped, but there will be attempts to do so. In addition to those attempts to do so, the attempts play directly into the hands of the Mature Soul paradigm because it is defined by drama. What you are experiencing currently, in terms of particularly this year's anxiety, stress, depression, deflation, is ironically a good sign in terms of the progression into the Mature Soul Age. That shift, that space between the retaliation and resistance and the full embrace is NOW. The full embrace is imminent. We cannot predict an exact date, but you will feel that relief. But 2020 is likely the shift that will be moving you toward that full embrace. However, because of the Mature Soul paradigm being anchored in drama and intensity and emotional turmoil, it may not feel like such a great thing. But it will only start out that way because of the nature of moving into anything from the negative pole and then finding a way toward the positive pole. So, it may be difficult to discern that 2020 was a Turning Point that helped to bring relief because it may still be intense and dramatic and emotionally tumultuous, but it is something that our students can practice embracing in a way that is not seen as a de-evolution or a setback or a regression or the end or demise or humanity falling apart. Our students as Old Souls have a natural responsibility to see beyond this. This is very important as an Old Soul. And that is one of the reasons why it feels so painful for some of you, because the responsibility is heavy, and you do not necessarily want to do it as Personalities. But you have to see the bigger picture. The Old Soul eventually can see the bigger picture and, depending on where you are in that spectrum of practice in seeing the bigger picture, helps determine how stressed out and depressed and overwhelmed you are. It does not mean that you have to ignore the acute picture or the immediate threats or dangers and grief. But keeping that bigger picture involved in your perspective is key to your surviving this in a way that feels as if you have participated in a world that is evolving and not falling apart. Do you understand? It is not easy. Did we answer the question? Janet: How do we see? The obvious answer is that we see with our eyes, but I think something more than that is going on. I don't use my physical eyes while dreaming, and yet I remember visual scenes. I don't use my eyes when ‘visualizing’ or using my imagination, but I still ‘see’ things. People who have out of body experiences report being able to see as though they have physical eyes, even while their physical eyes are closed. So, what's going on? Is vision really only about the use of physical eyeballs connected to a physical brain, or are there components to vision that are not physical at all? MEntity: What is missing in the equation is consciousness. Consciousness does not require eyes. That is why we can see you without eyeballs. We cannot see you through this channel at the moment because if he opens his eyes he may break a connection with us. He must keep his eyes closed because he likes to be participating and present. Having the eyes closed helps us to come through without his being distracted by shiny objects, so to speak. Consciousness is not limited to biological senses. This is why you can see in the Astral Plane, this is why we can see the way we can see. Because consciousness moves much like a cursor on a computer screen, if you will. It moves along a medium that is like an ocean of energy, or an ocean of pixels if you will. And in the same way that a cursor can be on one part of the screen and move to another part of the screen is the way consciousness works in the universe. You do not have to be on Mercury to visit it in terms of seeing it. This is why remote viewing is possible. Because it is all interconnected in a way that is not quite understood and is currently being explored in quantum physics. But there is no limitation to consciousness and its capacity to generate sensory data without the body. How that happens we do not have terminology through this channel to necessarily explain it, but you are correct in that your sight is not dependent upon your eyes. Did this address the question well enough? Cong: Can Michael comment on what type of knowledge was available in the library of Alexandria that is lost today? Any possibility of retrieving that knowledge in the near future, for example, by some archaeological findings? MEntity: We do know that there are archaeological pockets that are likely to be discovered that reference a time period referring to the Alexandrian libraries. We do not know when this is likely to occur, but it is likely. As far as what type of knowledge, the range is too vast to cover in a discussion in this format at this time. But it is mostly knowledge that was relative to the sciences, to the cultures of the time, to philosophical explanations and thought experiments that revealed great insight into the nature of reality. So, one of the ways that that knowledge was able to survive and move forward is because of your design as individual Essences with an Instinctive Center. Because those who were involved in the Alexandrian libraries were still able to carry forward the knowledge that was gained and registered in individuals participating at the time in the Instinctive Center, that was much like a disc inserted into the lifetime and then pulled out and moved forward into the next lifetime, so to speak. And as you have awakened in your soul age over time, many have retrieved information that was from that time period and put it in a modern context. For example, Jane Roberts was a great example of an individual accessing Instinctive Center information that then was able to, through her contact with her guide, with her teacher, Seth, was able to retrieve a great deal of insight into the nature of reality. So, a lot of what is in the Seth material is quite a fair example of knowledge that was in the Alexandria libraries that our students, at least, were fascinated with and have brought forth into modern times. But they will find more. Kerrin: Will it be through archaeology or through Instinctive Centers? MEntity: Both. NickG: I was wondering, as a personality evolves throughout its life, do the personal descriptions for manifesting True Personality and False Personality stay relatively the same? Like, if someone were to ask you that question at 10 and again at 50 would you describe the two variations the same? For example, you described my True Personality as being ‘enlightened’ and false personality as being ‘loneliness.’ Will I still carry those two into my golden years? MEntity: Personalities are fairly consistent in where their range is between True and False Personalities. So, though it can change, it is quite likely to remain the same. They are helpful references to carry with you as you do go into your “Golden Years,” because they will still help you to gauge where you are in your embrace of Essence as Personality. So, the terms that we may offer to you to understand that spectrum between True and False Personality are fairly persistent enough to use throughout the entire life. Yes. Daniela: You have said that, "Scholars within any Entity or Cadre tend to act as record keepers and act as the responsible party for updating the Akashic Records involving events within and throughout the Entity and/or Cadre." Regarding Priests you have said that, during the disclosure and merging process on Astral Level 5, they are the "fragments who run these meetings, and help to direct the healing." So, if Scholars function as information processing units and Priests as facilitators and counselors, what functions do Servers, Artisans, Warriors, Sages, and Kings perform for their Entity/Cadre? MEntity: We may need a beverage for this. [Laughter] Servers are the Roles that come into their own the earliest and in the Physical Plane. They learn very quickly what matters and what does not and serve as the healers and the — we are looking for a phrase — the “canaries in the mine” in terms of how healthy the fragments of an Entity are at any given time. If your Servers are suffering, if they are in any way isolated, ailing, they are representing the processes of healing that are happening in their particular Entity. So, they are a gauge for where the collective of an Entity is in terms of its healing. Or a Cadre, for the Entities that do not have Servers in them. They will carry that weight. And most Servers will gladly tell you that they feel this weight. [Laughter] And there will be lifetimes where they opt out and let the rest of you grow up [Laughter] on your own in certain ways to gain from what was given to you in other lifetimes by that Server energy throughout the Entity or Cadre. So, they are the barometers of the Entities and Cadre, so to speak. Artisans are the innovators, of course, of the Entities and help to bring to the Physical Plane all that is imagined by members of an Entity. So, they are the connection between the formed and the unformed. Whether they are in themselves doing any creating, they will always be a part of the circuitry of an Entity or Cadre that helps to bring into form the ideas and innovations and imaginations of the members of an Entity or Cadre. So, they act as conduits for that and many Artisans respond to this in two different ways, and one is that they will try their best to control that persistent surge of creative energy that is coming from everywhere in their Entity or Cadre. They will try to control this and manage it and focus it and may even be more inclined toward strictness and structure and organization and predictable patterns. And the reason for this is because it helps to sort out the mess of creative energy that comes from the chaos of so many contributing to it. Or they will short circuit and carry forward a chaotic life and allow a representation of all of the unfinished and unformed and “crazy” ideas that are floating among the Entity and Cadre. So, this is important to understand for Servers and Artisans, that some of the behaviors and patterns of the individual life is not just because of the Personality. There is a force of energy that is also being navigated that's coming from not only your Essence but from its connection to its Entity and what it does as a part of the process of that Entity and function of that Entity. So, Artisans carry that weight of everybody chiming in with great ideas about what life on Earth could benefit from. And some will respond in a way that wants to organize this and some will respond in a way that says, well, let's see how crazy we can get with this. [Laughter] Warriors tend to be the bonding factors for a great many fragments across the Entities and Cadre. Warriors clear or help to clear the bullshit from all of the things that keep you from getting closer to each other, whether this is done in a persuasive way or a coercive way. [Laughter] But the work of the Warrior in the Physical Plane amongst its relationships in the life and between lives is part of what helps to allow for the Astral Plane reunion to happen in a way that is less chaotic than it would be otherwise. They are the glue for the Cadre. Sages are the teachers, of course, and they are primarily the source that, after the Servers have let you bumble through and grow up on your own, the Artisans have let the craziness occur, and the Warriors have brought the glue, and the Scholars are storing all of this, the Sages say, everybody lighten up. [Laughter] Let's have fun. Remember your innocence. Remember that we are ageless. Remember that this was supposed to be fun. [Laughter] Which can be lost on the other Roles. And can be quite annoying to the other Roles. [Laughter] But the Sages will persist and continue to poke at you, and provoke you, in ways that either bring you laughter, which is the representation of resolving paradoxes, resolving conflicts, oneness, or provoke you to find in yourself where you are refusing to allow joy, to allow your happiness, to allow your innocence, to allow your fun. So, you will either allow that in the laughter or you will see very clearly where you are uptight, resistant, or still dealing with pain that needs to be addressed. In the same way that children will either remind you to get in touch with that child or remind you how to care more about the joy of life, so will the Sages be that reminder for all the fragments of a Cadre, even into the Astral Plane. And we know this may not come of comfort to some of you, but they will continue to be a source [Troy laughs] of provocation into the Astral and Causal Plane. So, we will describe them as the provocative, or the provocateur. The source of provocation. We are not getting the correct term out, but we know you know what we are saying. Catalyst. Kings are the Roles that really do not come into full bloom until the Causal Plane. They are the delegators of the Cadres and Entity, they are the Role that eventually reminds everyone where their seats are, [Laughter] where their place is, and allows for a far more efficiently functioning Entity to occur so that the true exploration of existence can occur. Existence on a level that is not capable of being explored while fragmented. And Kings, of course, feel this even in their individual lifetimes because it will never, while across the entire spectrum of incarnations while in the Physical Plane, feel as if things are right, things are settled, or working the way they could be. Because of this inherent nature as a functioning part of a Cadre or Entity to bring that order on a scale that is very difficult to see or understand or implement while in a physical body in the Physical Plane. So, that is our response at this point. We know that it could have been more succinct, but this is our first movement through Troy in a while. And that is the best we could do tonight. Kerrin: So, Entities that don't have all the Roles, such as yours Michael, it's just Warriors and Kings, how do you compensate for the missing parts, so to speak? MEntity: However each Entity's design is in terms of a proportion of Roles, the Cadre makes up for in its distribution of Roles. So, the entire Cadre will have a persistent and consistent representation of the Roles in some way divided among the seven and will work as a whole. So, while we do not have many of the Roles, the rest of the Cadre helps to carry that processing or Roles or functions, and it's not limited to what is accessible through our own Entity. So, when it is not there, it moves to another Entity that is willing to provide that. There tend to be Entities, this is not a rule, but it tends to be that an Entity may have a predominance of a certain Role and will play that for the rest of the Cadre, while another Entity will have a predominance of a Role that will then play that function for the rest of the Cadre, and so forth. So that every Entity is playing some role that participates in the functioning of the entire Cadre. Does this make sense? BobbyK: If our casting is how we manifest in our daily lives, can some of the functionalities of the Roles correlate into our casting? MEntity: Yes, not quite as strongly. But, yes. Cong: So, what you just said, does it imply that some Entities within a Cadre will work more closely together? For example, Cadre 1 Entity 2 does not have a lot of Servers. So, does it mean that this Entity works more with Entity 7 in this Cadre because they have more Servers? MEntity: Yes. All of Cadre 1's Entities work very closely with Entity 7. It is primarily Servers and Priests, so it carries the weight of the processes that Servers and Priests do. Mostly the Servers. Tex: For some reason, Geraldine’s been on my mind. Is she listening in? And how does she reach you now? MEntity: Oh! [Laughter] It took awhile for her to settle down. [Laughter] There was a lot of demanding questions that her Essence and Guides had to contend with, and we helped in that process, and that continues to this day. There is, in her words, “So much more than I thought to ask while I was alive.” And part of what was considered, for lack of a better term, her “Heaven” is the experience of finally accessing all of the ways that questions can be answered. She may forget these upon next incarnation, but the Review and the work are there and will always carry forward. But she is not listening at this point to your conversation. She is fairly busy. [Laughter] We will conclude here then and say to each of you, have a good evening and good-bye.

    ENERGY REPORT May 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY comes in with a “weight” that may feel heavier than the months before while carrying with it moments and days of great levity and joy. This weight may not be as obvious, at first, but as the month progresses, a heaviness may grow. The moments of levity and joy come in random calm and centered experiences that may finally be available to you as many adjust to a “new world.” As most are upholding the restrictions that must remain in place for safety during the pandemic, seasonal changes may bring a sense of weight and conflict to many as they feel the world is moving on without them, but these seasonal changes also bring a wind of freshness and life to many moments. Younger souls are reaching limits to how long they will accommodate a threat they have been convinced is merely an inconvenience, bringing to the public a rise or resurgence in a potential threat to those who are choosing to consider the well-being of others, but there is also a glimpse of recovery and “normalcy” that may bring with it some comfort. The emphasis of Power during May (and likely into June) is a shift of emphasis toward the use and abuse of communication as key to new directions forward. The amount of misinformation and disinformation to sort through may be quite overwhelming for many, but the likely breakthroughs in discoveries, science, and facts are also quite inspiring and encouraging over May. When an energy in our report is emphasized on a collective scale, the response tends to be either a resistance or a reception to that emphasis. With the emphasis on communication over May, many of our students may either go more silent than usual or be more vocal than usual. There may be an increase in isolation or an increase in socializing. Either way, it would likely be obvious that there is an increase in one direction or another. We think that most of our students will respond with a willingness to embrace more direct, honest, and clear communication along with some surprising reunions, but some may prefer to drop all communication for a while. If you choose to drop communication, it will be important to know that you can choose to return to increased communication at any point. If you choose to increase communication, you can take a break. No one is locked into a path here, but we can say that the more that you work on improving communication, which is the act of relaying AND receiving information and expression, the more you contribute to the clarity of direction, collectively. May could be likened to a waiting room or lobby where everyone is gathered to await news or verdicts. May is a waiting period. It will bring with it mixed energies that may seem in contradiction, but this is a period of examining a range of possibilities that can only be created from communication. The truth will always be true with or without hearing it, knowing it, or accepting it, but for humanity to move forward toward the best possibilities, it will be vital to hear, know, and accept the truth on a personal, community, global, and universal level. It will be vital to differentiate these circles of truth and how they work. As Infinite Soul energy increases in waves, the emphasis is increasingly focused on returning trust to what is true and how to know what is true. We will have more to say about this in June after exploration has happened over May. For now, allow yourself a range of expression that may help you to learn to be more comfortable hearing, knowing, accepting, and sharing truths. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): May 5th -- Energy Shift -- TRUTH & CONSEQUENCES - This Energy Shift kicks in the emphasis of Power on how truth is communicated. This brings with it a wave of clearer and clearer consequences from either accepting or rejecting the truth. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MAY: THE TRUTH MATTERS - As we said, the existence of truth is not dependent upon its acceptance, but the impact of truth is profoundly affected by its acceptance or rejection. We are speaking of truth on all levels, from your personal truths that are accepted or denied, to the universal truths that were in existence long before and after you. AN ASIDE: Keep in mind that personal truths are not merely a matter of what you decide to be true. If you decide not to like chocolate, but you still like chocolate, you are lying. It is not a truth that you do not like chocolate. If you decide that it is okay to make choices that harm others because you cannot see the consequences of that harm or that you do not care about the consequences, it does not make it true that it is okay. If you decide that your life is not worth living because you have suffered or that you have not gained the fulfillment you expected, it does not make it true that your life is not worth living. However subjective truth is on the personal level, it is still about what is true whether you accept it, or not. It may not be true for everyone that “chocolate is delicious,” which makes this a personal truth, but you either like chocolate, or you do not. We point this out because when you are not accepting of what is true for yourself, it does not change that truth any more than the rejection of gravity changes the global truth of gravity. As soon as you accept the truth, even when it is on a personal level, the more you have empowered yourself. You may not like gravity, but accepting it and understanding it is what allows you to fly. You may not like your addiction to chocolate, but accepting it and understanding it can help you to find alternatives that satisfy you. You may not like your life and the pain you have endured, but knowing and understanding that the value and worth of life are not defined by hardships or even by successes can help you to be empowered to define your life rather than be defined by it. You may not like that your everyday choices in diet, shopping, conveniences, etc. may be causing harm to the environment, to animals, to each other or your health, but accepting the truth of how one’s everyday choices have consequences can help empower you to be in control of how and what you do to change those everyday choices.

    ENERGY REPORT October 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) OCTOBER brings a new, but vaguely familiar, energy that is part of what might be considered a collective “course correction.” There is really no such thing as a “correction” in a collective course as every direction is a valid direction, but we speak in terms regarding a collective waking up to the consequences of one direction and realizing that a different direction is preferred. It is a fragile and precarious and weak shift, but it is a shift that is happening, and fairly unexpectedly. The end of September and beginning of October may have brought for many of our students a kind of deep fatigue that had no obvious or emotional element, only fatigue. We think this is because of the equivalent of a long-term bracing for impact and then realizing that little to no impact will occur. There is a relief, some disbelief, disorientation, and then the exhaustion that comes as adrenaline dissipates. For many students, there is a stillness that may have generated within as a kind of surveilling reaction to this sense that something is shifting. It is a distancing that is not willing to invest until it is clear that a real shift is happening. This shift is a slow and precarious and fragile return to a core parallel that would bring back a sense of broadening possibilities and choices and progression that has not been felt since 2016. The full shift may or may not complete, but it is happening at the moment. What we can suggest for our students is to continue considering the ways in which you are contributing to this shift. From big to small changes of action in life, every effort matters. This is a Moving Centered year that has had a great emphasis on witnessing the power of actual Action and its consequences that may have an impact far down the line of time and space. As October progresses, those who are spiraling into Self-Destruction will likely continue to do so until there is either an implosion or explosion. An implosion would be self-contained and affect only those within that spiral of Self-Destruction. An explosion would be an effort to take as many down as possible with the destruction. At this point, the probabilities are too close to call one as being more likely than the other, but we know from experience that most collective Self-Destruction events do tend to explode. As October progresses, those who have evaded or are rising out of Self-Destruction will likely continue to do so with an increasing sense of empowerment, return of curiosity, enthusiasm, and contribution, all with comfort in looking forward. When one has overcome Self-Destruction, it shows up as either profound and private relief after such a close call, or shows up as exuberant celebration and “good news.” On a personal level, if any of our students are struggling with Self-Destruction, there is great collective support for rising up and out of this, but it will still require your participation and contribution. The greatest contribution one can make to a personal or collective overcoming of a Self-Destruction spiral is to truly accept that “it is worth it.” YOU are worth it. WE are worth it. THEY are worth it. THE FUTURE is worth it. THEIR LIVES are worth it. YOUR LIFE is worth it. And so on. This does not relieve one of the challenges, struggles, and obstacles, but it does break the spiral of being convinced that nothing is worth it. The worth of something is not dependent upon how difficult or easy it is to care for it. Even if you do not care about yourself, you are worth it. Even if you do not care about others, they are worth it. What we mean by “worth it” is that caring and compassion benefit every living thing. Every living thing, including you, is worth the effort to care, is worth the compassion. Every living thing, including you, is improved and benefited by the compassion and care that is offered up. What that living thing does with your compassion and care is up to them, but contributing to that bank of care and compassion helps everyone, including your collective trajectory. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): October 3rd - 10th -- Energy Shift -- POSSIBILITY -- October starts with an energy shift that slowly, cautiously, and carefully sparks a sense of possibility for a return to what many may feel is a corrected course of trajectory for humanity. This is not a certainty and would not magically solve all problems facing humanity, but this sense of possibility is the first solid and collective wave of encouragement that most have felt in a long time. October 23rd - 27th -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - This marks yet another shift away from Self-Destruction on a large scale. For those spiraling further into Self-Destruction, this may be a window that offers a glimpse or clear picture of where that destruction is taking them. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER OCTOBER: WHAT DID I CONTRIBUTE TODAY - Many of our students wonder and worry about what they can be doing to help contribute to the world in a way that matters and helps shift the world toward healing and progress. One of the easiest ways one can help is to consider what one is contributing to the day. If you wonder what qualities you contribute through your choices and actions, simply ask, “CAN THIS MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE?” This applies to choices and actions, NOT to your moods, feelings, processes of grief and anger, etc. It is only about the tangible elements that have an impact, such as what you DO and what you CHOOSE. Keep in mind that doing nothing can also be an action that has impact. The answer to the question may be that you do not know, and that is fair. However, there will be times that you know that your action or choice does not contribute to the world in a way that considers the impact. You may not know what to choose or do as an alternative in those instances, but that is something that you can work on if you choose to do so. There are going to be times when you cannot or will not choose the alternatives that may be of more benefit, and it will not serve you to respond with guilt or resentment. Instead, respond with learning. Now you know and you can look for alternatives. Now you know and you can consider different actions. The goal here is to simply increase your awareness of your participation in a personal, community, and global collective in a way that allows you to honor your worth. Understanding that what you DO, DO NOT DO, and what you choose matters, can be one of the most empowering and powerful realizations one can make in a lifetime.

    ENERGY REPORT August 2018 2018 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) AUGUST brings with it a strong collective emphasis on the Attitude of Pragmatist directly between the Polarities of Efficiency and Dogma. As for which Polarity will gain more emphasis, we will have to explore in September or October when the emphasis on the Chief Features come into frame. Currently, the “battle” between Efficiency and Dogma has been decided for most of our students and the next month or so will be a matter of rising up and out of the weight of Dogma or fully embracing a perspective of Efficiency that moves the life forward with relief. What we have discovered on the other side of the recent and long-lasting “Nexus Bubble” is that most of our students converged with variations of themselves across parallels where they had begun to “listen to themselves.” For most, this return to listening to yourself meant a renewed trust and enthusiasm for cutting through the bullshit of confusion and chaos and simply focus on what is true. There are always many paths of speculation and possibility and probability that range between “good and bad,” and when the personal or collective world is bombarded with a vast and uncertain range of speculation, one can lose all sense of what is true and the voices of the world or your fears or your past or your worries, etc. drown out your True Voice. You begin to think and feel that all of it is true. This is impossible for the mind and body to process and you begin to shut down from the sources of joy and vitality and curiosity and play of life. You begin to dismiss your 9 Needs and ignore your 9 Pillars. You no longer know what is true so you lose your sense of True Play, True Work, True Study, True Love, True Home, etc. Your mind shuts down because when everything is true then none of it is true. When you are no longer guided by what is true, you begin to be guided by the voices of everyone and everything but yourself. You lose your True Voice. We will introduce this concept of “True Voice” as that inner guidance system that can be relied upon when all of your Needs and Pillars are nurtured. The True Voice is simply an inner trust in your own choices and your capacity to navigate and calibrate and adapt and change and grow through those choices. There will be “right” choices and “wrong” choices and you will learn from these. There will be choices with intentional consequences and choices with unintentional consequences and you will grow from these. There will be choices you regret and choices you celebrate. Your True Voice embraces fully the concept of “Learning How To Choose, and Choosing How To Learn.” Even when the choice is to hold off on making a choice. But the True Voice will never paralyze you. For most of our students, the recent Nexus Bubble sorted through all of the moments where you fragmented yourself by not listening to yourself. You sorted through all of the moments where those parts of you suddenly realized that they had to return to their True Voice, and they did. And that includes you. This version of you also decided enough is enough and stripped through the bullshit din of noise and remembered that your own voice is valid and worthy and meaningful and true. Yes, there is a lot of uncertainty in the world and even in yourself, but when you lose your trust in your own voice, you become voiceless and directionless. Many of our students reclaimed their True Voice over July and now begin the work of listening. For most of our students this has meant returning to the Pragmatist’s Efficiency of cutting out or cutting through the bullshit din of noise and voices that are telling you what is and is not true and trusting yourself to embrace your own enthusiasm, play, joy, progress, actions, etc. that are true for you. It is possible for these things to be true even as it is true that the personal or collective world is in a challenging state. It is okay to listen to your own voice when the world is crying and screaming, and it is vital. Listening to your own voice changes everything because you are no longer defined by what is true around you or by what you are told is true, but you become a force of creativity that helps contribute to or change the truth around you. In short, one can listen to the world telling you how awful you are or how awful the world is, or you can listen to your True Voice and listen to the truth that things, people, life and even you can be both awful AND wonderful. Your True Voice allows room for your choices to matter. This Nexus Bubble revealed to many of our students that they have been on a journey over the past 5 to 30 years of discovering just how much they matter. This may seem to be an easy concept to embrace as older souls and students of a teaching, but it is not. Remembering that you matter is a long journey that starts with the first incarnation. As an Old Soul, you remember that you matter and you will never forget that truth, but every lifetime/Personality must start from scratch in that process of remembering. The fact that you remember this within a lifetime is fairly astounding in the greater scheme of things. It is not a matter to dismiss. For those who may have fallen further into Dogma over July, you may find that the emphasis remains on the lie that you do not matter. If you continue to struggle with the voices that tell you that you do not matter, then you may have fallen into Dogma and are discovering just how repetitive and ingrained and loud the voices are that are not your own. If you find that you have fallen into Dogma, your work is to stop listening to everything and start listening to one thing. Pick one voice that matters to you. Pick one truth that means something to you. Let all of the other voices and truths float around you and exist as they are, but make the effort to listen to the one that matters to you and means something to you. That voice will be fairly quiet, kind, calm, and inviting. It is not cruel, destructive, diminishing, or shaming. That voice may not even come from within you, but from the voice of this teaching, or the voice of a friend, or the voice of a song. Center yourself and find a voice that cares about you and listen as closely and as persistently as you can because this is how you will find your own True Voice again and remember that you matter. On the world stage, you will likely continue to see the dance between extreme Dogma and profound Efficiency. There are going to be those who suddenly surge forward and cut through the noise to the True Voice of humanity, while others dig deep into the trenches of repetitive rhetoric and try to drown humanity in Dogma. On the world stage, it will likely be quite clear how Greed is overtaking them and their fear of not having enough is fueling the Dogma. What that Greed is fixated upon may not be clear until October, but it is likely “power.” Now that the Nexus Bubble has passed and a great shift has occurred in terms of a collective return to True Voice, we can also see that the Transcendental Souls are awake and the Infinite Soul candidates are in order. If there is to be a Manifestation, the pieces are now in place, so to speak. This may or may not come to be, but there is no further question as to whom will be involved. We do not know all of the individuals involved, but we can say that we know of several now. We will speak to this in more detail in further exchanges with you, but we can confirm that David Hogg is a Transcendental Soul and Emma Gonzalez is a Candidate. We will elaborate further in another exchange with you, but these figures can now be observed for insights into the more elusive concepts regarding Transcendental Souls and Infinite Soul candidates. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): August 25th - 27th -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - This Nexus window looks to bring with it a further shift toward “strength in numbers” regarding altering the course of history regarding potential war. The awareness of potential war and great conflict may begin to rise and be taken more seriously. This rise in awareness and serious consideration is necessary for helping to update the patterns that have been in a battle between Young Soul ideas of conflict as necessary for growth and the new Mature Soul ideas of compassion as necessary for growth. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER AUGUST: FUCK THAT NOISE - When you feel overwhelmed and uncertain and conflicted and confused and anxious and paralyzed, it may be helpful for you to simply state “fuck that noise” and make an effort to listen to the most meaningful and kindest voice you can find in the mess. Let the noise be noise and find the voice that matters. The voice that matters speaks to you in ways that remind you that you matter.

    ENERGY REPORT November 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) NOVEMBER brings with it a full dive into Self-destruction, so to speak. It is here. This is what it looks like. This is what it feels like. Most of our students did not generate this, but when anyone is in Self-destruction, there is collateral damage. Anyone who has been in the life of someone who commits suicide or sacrifices their life will know this truth. Self-destruction is a defense mechanism. It is a defense against Worthlessness. When an individual fears losing any sense of contribution, participation, and meaning they can develop Self-destruction. Where Greed is a fear of not having enough, Self-destruction is the fear of having too much. It is often an insidious fear that creeps in as a form of constant self-sabotage or as a constant prompt to prove one’s worth to make up for the life being “wasted.” Since no life is wasted and there is never a requirement that one prove one’s worth, this fear is unwarranted. When one seeks to give his or her life meaning, it cannot be done only through external means. It must be rooted in meaning that is nurtured and rooted within. For many, this struggle for worth is instilled in them from early in life and it is their navigational compass for the rest of the life. Most of our students clearly understand how Chief Features work on an individual level that affects the self, but many of our students are not clear on how these work when Projection is involved. Chief Features can show up as Provoked or Projected. For example, if one has Arrogance, it is not always that the Arrogance is only displayed by the one in Arrogance. It may show up as his seeing others displaying Arrogance when he feels vulnerable. He will then defend himself against those he feels are threatening him with their Arrogance, even though the Arrogance is his own and generated entirely from himself. This collective dive into Self-destruction is the result of collective projection of Worthlessness. Nearly half of the population blames their own sense of worthlessness on the other half. This was clearly displayed in the election results for the American President. This projection of Worthlessness has always been there, but fear bonded these individuals into a state of powerful projection that brings with it collateral damage. Though there is a majority of Baby and Young Souls in this particular group of fear, and a White majority, this Projection of Worthlessness can be with anyone. Many women, people of color, and of various sexualities will join up in this group projection of blame because they have lived for so long blaming themselves for their lack of worth, and it feels good to them to finally find a path that legitimizes blaming others. Collective Karma is a “real thing” and those from this group are working out collective Self-Karma around collective responsibility and self-discipline vs self-preservation and oppression. For many who are our students or students of similar teachings, the Collective Karma is different. It is the Collective Karma of Complacency. Whether showing up as Provoked or Projected, Chief Features cannot be sustained. They are inherently destructive but fragile. For this collective projection of blame to be sustained it will require a profound collapse of power among those governed by love and consciousness. It will require Complacency. It is not amiss to compare this Turning Point represented by this election in the United States or the event known as “Brexit” to that which happened to lead to the rule of Hitler. Hitler did not take power. He was given power. And that experience in your history is one of the reasons so many have opted into this as a collective, catapulting Karmic event. As we said: Collective Karma is a “real thing.” And you are now in it on a scale not seen in long time by us. You are now clear on experience that once led to and allowed the rise of Hitler, both in documented terms and in terms of Essence. That event traumatized humanity in ways that we have not explored much with our students. We did not know when this collective approach to balancing that Karma would come, but it is here. There are many sets of Collective Karma to address within humanity, and this is just one of them. This Collective Karma is not about balancing what Hitler imposed, but about balancing the collective Self-Karma of Complacency and Convenience that allowed for such an event in your history to exist at all. Hitler rose to power because too many were complacent and ignored the threat in favor of conveniences. You are now in a world where environmental destruction, absolute corruption of power, climate catastrophes, mass extinction of species, decimation of food sources and water reserves are looming. They are real. They are are on your horizon. They are not going to “just go away,” or be saved for another lifetime. This may seem daunting, ominous, and paralyzing, but the solution is simple: DO SOMETHING. The only reason any of this has come to such a Turning Point is because most respond to Fear as Active and Love as Passive. Fear tends to show up as an imposition, while Love is an invitation. Fear is definitive, and Love is flexible. Fear does not feel good, and Love must feel great, etc. Due to these seemingly inherent differences, those who navigate through Love tend to NOT DO ANYTHING, while Fear prompts constant activity. How many of our students have been encouraged to “hold love,” to “send love,” to “not hate,” to “stay positive,” to “be strong,” to “be light,” “send light,” and so on? How many have been invited to “trust” when what is actually being asked of you in the misuse of “trust” is that you ignore your feelings, ignore your thoughts, ignore your reality, and to blindly navigate as conveniently as possible? These suggestions lock you in complacency and convenience, and many of your are done with this. Half of Humanity is at a Turning Point where the choices are now between waking up to collective responsibility and self-discipline vs self-preservation and oppression. The other half of Humanity is at a Turning Point where the choices are between Active/Awake and Passive/Complacency. Every Turning Point is met with a Breakthrough or a Breakdown. You just experienced a Breakdown. For our students, this is the result of Complacency. This is the result of the distraction and prioritizing of Convenience. Many of our students, and some of our channels, interpret our teaching as one that encourages complacency so that one has to do as little as possible as our teaching becomes one of protection and sanctuary, not one of empowerment. This is true of most spiritual teachings and teachers. We are not that teacher, nor are we that teaching. Our teaching can be used however one chooses to use it, but we state as clearly as possible now: if our teaching is being used to encourage complacency, it is no longer our teaching. It is someone else’s. Love is an inspirational element, but Love is not inaction. For love to make a difference in a material world, LOVE must include ACTION. And Fear is not action. Fear is REACTION. Many of our students know that there is something not quite “right” about complacency and convenience as a conscious or subconscious guiding principle for a life. It is a valid choice, but one that is eventually left behind in favor of broader, more inclusive and loving paths. It is not wrong, but for those who are awake, it does not feel “right.” Complacency and Convenience are as valid a choice as murder and theft, but the more one is awake, the less comfortable it is to make any choices that have consequences of harm. Complacency and Convenience are not the equivalent of murder and theft, but they often bring more far-reaching harm than even a single murder. The older soul can no longer justify or embrace any choice that directly or indirectly causes harm, however distance and far-reaching that harm. For those involved in the Collective Karma of Complacency or the Collective Karma of Self-preservation it can be said that Routine, Security, and Privilege can either lead to choices and actions that support Value Fulfillment, Compassion, and Creativity, or they can lead to refusal to choose and increased reactions that support Meaninglessness, Defensiveness, and Entitlement. Both “sides” have a choice. You have a choice. This Turning Point has come and it brought with it a Breakdown. But Breakthroughs can be built from Breakdowns. It is not one or the other. Those in Self-preservation are finding themselves standing side-by-side with those they blamed for their sense of worthlessness. They are bonding in their lack of worth and this has potential to generate bridges between differences. The bonds cannot be generated across the gap of Collective Karma, just yet. Those from the Collective Karma of Self-preservation will not find relief from those struggling with their Complacency, but they have an opportunity to bond across differences they did not expect to bridge. The sleepy, but awakening gay man, Black woman, Hispanic teen, etc, and the sleepy, but awakening White people amid those locked in fear are the “trojan horses” of opportunity for evolution, for waking up, for self-questioning and Breakthrough toward collective responsibility and self-discipline. This scenario is not new to history, but however familiar it is, and however spectacularly it fell short in the past, it is different now, and it comes with great potential. For our students who are realizing the depth of Complacency that has been in place for most of this life, you have a choice to tap into Self-destruction and Blame yourselves, Blame others, or you can choose to DO SOMETHING for a change. You do not have to take on a life-altering shift away from your personal path to make a difference, but you can do something. Anything. If you wish to help balance out this Collective Karma of Complacency that allows for such things as the rise of tyranny, the extinction of species, the suffering of animals, the destruction of the environment, the catapulting toward climate catastrophe, etc. then you must do something different than what you are doing. You must choose something that makes a difference and do this. You must choose something that not only challenges your complacency, but transforms it into passionate, free, conscious energy. Start small, then aim higher. If you are already one who is inclined to be doing something, you are not immune from this Complacency. You may be neglecting something and this is your wake up call. Are you ignoring your creativity? Your health? Your impulses? Your well-being? Some of you aim very high in your Love and then leave yourselves behind. For every person who chooses to take up a cause that benefits the planet, and took up a practice that benefits personal well-being, the Breakdown shifts toward Breakthrough. In the realm of Tyranny, Breakdown is the official launch into your evolution toward a Breakthrough. It is up to each of you to put in the work that would bring Breakthrough regarding Climate Catastrophe, Relief for Animals, Environmental Replenishing, Water Conservation, etc. While you work through the grief and shock of this Breakdown under Tyranny, one of the most empowering things you can do right now is to take up action for a Cause, and put into practice something for your own well-being. The work of navigating through the Tyranny will be its own thing, and we will be here with you through this. The work of balancing your Collective Karma so that you revitalize your Creativity, Compassion, and Value Fulfillment through the Actions of Love is your priority now if you are Active and Awake. Though all choices are valid, we are helping to inform you that your choices go well beyond what you may have been encouraged to pursue. You have a choice. You will go through stages of mourning, loss, and process all that grief brings. This is Good Work. This is healthy. Allow room for this. And when you are ready, take on any area of Complacency you see that helped contribute to allowing Tyranny to rise, and that helps to ensure other patterns unfolding on the horizon. We know you are tired. We know you are sad. We know you are hurting. We know you are being told to just “send love.” But if you ever wondered when The Work of your life would be important, it can be now. If you ever wondered when the inconvenience of choices that make difference would be worth it, it can be now. If you ever wondered when you should take yourself seriously as a creative and loving force that does not have to live life as a quiet apology for your existence, now is the time. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): November 7th - 10th -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - A dramatic parallel shift toward the work of Collective Karmic themes. This is a parallel where all who are involved are on a path that seeks to “heal the world.” It may not look like it because the wounds have to be clearly identified and pronounced, but the work of profound and lasting healing is of high priority here. As we have said before, and will say again: Peace is not always Pretty. November 11th -- ENERGY SHIFT - VITALITY - For many of our students the Nexus brought with it a stripping of vitality, a shocking deflation of energy, clarity, and direction. November 11th begins the return of vitality, of color, of motivation and meaning. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER November: The entire report above

    From a private session on 3/17/2020: MEntity: Hello to you, Diane. We are here, now. We can begin. DianeHB: Hi Michael. My questions today will be about the Covid-19/coronavirus pandemic. DianeHB: 1. To follow up on Becca's question about disruption to the food supply chain this morning -- would this mainly affect US food supplies or Europe and other continents as well? MEntity: Depending on the extent of the impact in time from this pandemic, all continents would be affected to some extent, particularly areas that would be affected by halting of distributions due to stricter quarantining. DianeHB: Ok, thank you. DianeHB: 2. I get the feeling that this pandemic feeds into our Turning Points on individual, community, and global levels. Individually, many people are facing their fears and anxieties, precarious financial situations, or having the time to reconnect with themselves as they suddenly have the time they didn't have before. The systems and momentum in our society that seemed so intractable suddenly ground to a halt, and the consequences could be severe if this lasts more than a few weeks. But there are also some positive consequences -- there is less flying, less driving, and less consumption, which means we have suddenly reduced our impact on the climate. DianeHB: Could you elaborate on the "cascading catastrophic collapse in several areas of society and services and safety"? We are seeing pressures on the healthcare system, the precarious situation of people with low-paying service jobs and those living in poverty/homelessness, which are exacerbate by the lack of affordable healthcare. MEntity: The cascading catastrophic collapse we speak of is the potential for disruptions in food security, electricity, fuel supplies, and internet. These disruptions could cascade outward in several directions to prompt reactions that cause even more challenges, such as disregard for law and social agreements. DianeHB: Oh wow. MEntity: It is a low probability that we see, but it is high enough to be noted. DianeHB: What are the probabilities of these collapses happening? Is it determined by whether the virus continues to spread, or by quarantine measures? MEntity: At the moment this is around 20% likely. The greatest determining factors are the strictness of quarantines that may come and the length of time in these quarantines. A secondary factor is any exploitation or imposition from those in power, such as your President. DianeHB: I see. DianeHB: I would hope that they ensure the essential supplies are sustained under quarantine. DianeHB: But our country has not had great foresight so far when they could've seen this coming. MEntity: Competence and care are in shorter supply than food in some cases and that would have its impact on all securities. DianeHB: How about in other continents? DianeHB: Some of them have better leadership than we do. MEntity: The greater probabilities are in the United States. Other countries have lower probabilities. DianeHB: Ok good. I'm trying to get an idea for others on TLE as well. DianeHB: 3. You told Janet E: "There is a great deal of variables that could change that, particularly population willingness and involvement. Many, at this point, are still in denial. If that denial can be lifted, early probabilities for relief are May." DianeHB: Is the denial mainly about the necessity for self-isolation and social distancing? What would change the minds of those who are in active denial? Seeing people around them get sick and die? Not only has conservative media been telling people it's "just a flu", younger people in their thirties and younger are often still carrying on because statistics say it only affects them mildly. Could you also give more indications and potential paths we can get through this, both individually and together? MEntity: Social distancing is the only solution for slowing this pandemic. We see approximately 10% of populations practicing this to the extent that it needs to be in place. It would require 75% to 90% to truly slow this, and at least 40% to 60% to reduce deaths and impact on systems. At 10% practice, this may lead toward a mutation that would be far more challenging and deadly, which would then begin to have more obvious effects on more demographics, escalating this pandemic to another tier of threat. MEntity: Incentives and security would help. If governments and systems and individual exchanges would shift toward ensuring security, it would bring greater effort for distancing. For example, companies that can continue wages, or government subsidies for everyone under a certain tier of income for shelter expenses, landlords allowing leniency and waiving of rent, services provided without fees, etc. In short, removing money from the equation of human existence. DianeHB: Yeah, that has a lot to do with why a lot of people haven't been able to practice distancing. DianeHB: That ties in with my next question. DianeHB: 4. The U.S. government is having to look at all kinds of financial relief to the common citizens, which has not been done since FDR and the New Deal. But now even some Republicans are talking about some kind of universal basic income to get through this. Do you see this pandemic and the policy changes associated with it as potentially moving us closer to a resource-based economy in the US and/or around the world? MEntity: 100% DianeHB: Wow. MEntity: It may be a short leap or a large leap, but it is pivotal in shifting a paradigm. MEntity: Let us be clear: MEntity: It is NOT the pandemic or disease or virus "teaching" any of you anything. It was not sent or generated as a lesson, punishment, or opportunity. It is simply a part of the nature of the Physical Plane and the scathing that all risk by being alive. The pandemic and virus are no different from an avalanche, tsunami, earthquake, hurricane, drought, flood, etc. It is a force of nature that reflects processes within humanity, but it is not an independent source teaching you or evolving you or punishing you. The short or long leap toward a Resource-based economy would be because of choices and actions taken by you in response to the threat. In other words, the lessons or teaching that come from a threat are not in the threat, itself, but in the response. DianeHB: Yes, I understand that, but it's good to make that distinction. I see a lot of spiritual talk out there seeing this as something about the nature of the pandemic, but it's really what it brings out in us. MEntity: More precisely, what you bring out of yourselves. DianeHB: Yeah. DianeHB: I'm seeing a lot of people individually facing their truths, and we are doing it on a societal level as well. DianeHB: How is this pandemic affecting the potential Infinite Soul manifestation? Have the probabilities increased or stayed the same? MEntity: If this pandemic is winding down around May, probabilities for Manifestation would lower. If this pandemic is escalated or continues through October, probabilities move closer to 100% Manifestation by December. DianeHB: And can you go back to address what we individually can do to get through this? Stock up, offer help if we can, ask for help if we need it? MEntity: On the most intimate of levels, allow this time to be one for you to SLOW DOWN. This is something we have mentioned to our students off and on for a long time in terms of what contributes most to collective anxiety. Slow Down. Do something different. Be with yourself. Practice giving yourself love and appreciation. MEntity: On the more interactive of levels, ironically, reconnect with others. Reach out to them in ways that you may not have made time for in the past. MEntity: Helping others and asking for help is a universally beneficial position in any circumstance. MEntity: As for more practically "how to get through this," we would suggest that you secure food sources and watch for any threats to supply lines, add some creativity to your day as you spend more time in isolation, find a way to exercise your mind, body, and emotions, and focus your attention on credible and specialized sources for information, not speculative or hand-wringing sources. MEntity: We will conclude here for today, then. Good day to you, Diane. Goodbye, for now. DianeHB: Thank you Michael and Troy!! xoxo

    Every time I feel a surge of enthusiasm and energy and think my head is above water, a wave washes over me and I feel like I am drowning again. What bothers me about this feeling is that I have no idea WHY or from WHERE it is coming! I hear Michael when they say that "everyone" is feeling similarly and that we are all plugged into this horrific mess of reality that we are trying to sort and set back on track, but JEEEESUSSSSSs...... I just feel so lost and disconnected and discombobulated. Instead of struggling, I just let myself sink and I'm starting to realize that's not the best solution. I am overwhelmed, paralyzed, and depressed. If I had a tangible and specific reason for it, I think I might be more capable of navigating this, but with no obvious or direct reason, it just feels like I need to be as still as possible and let it all pass by me until it is gone. But it's just not leaving! My one go-to source of joy that could always snap me out of any weighted issue was to game with friends and I find myself even avoiding that. I am just a churning mess of avoidance and mental paralysis. So the first thing I want to do is apologize to all of you for any collateral damage done to my relationships with you, my schedule, my groups, support responses, my quality of channeling... I keep thinking I've finally made it to shore and can stand up and get going again, but I'm still treading water. The other thing I wanted to say is that I've decided to dedicate this month's Michael Speaks to this very topic. I want to ask them about navigating collective and individual crises and get more details and insight into what the hell is going on with so many of us. The reason I am sharing such personal details about my private struggle is because I think many of us think that we should have it all together and be able to rise above these weird challenges of life because we have such a great teaching and teacher and a great community of support... but it just doesn't always work like that. We are processing something. Something big. Something personal and collective at the same time. We are dealing with age, health, life choices, loved ones, money issues, and then we have all of this collective turmoil happening... It just feels like shit. So it's not "you." It's not the teaching. It's not something we are doing wrong. But if we can get some insights together, I want to try because I need to snap out of this. And I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way. I'm making active efforts this week to snap out of it and that won't come easy, but maybe we can do this together for each other as a way to do it for ourselves. If you are going through something similar, say hi and join in on receiving the support. If you don't relate to what I'm describing, jump in and give all the love and energy you have in support for our fellow students who are struggling. Love love love to all of you and don't worry... I WILL snap out of this. Troy

    TLE is finally back, but the issue is still being addressed that caused the chaos. For now, it looks like we only lost a few days of general posting, but if you were affected by this, please forgive the circumstances and hopefully your posts can be recreated. This whole situation, on top of everything else, shows just how vulnerable and fragile we are as a community on a digital platform, but the good news is that we have everything backed up, archived, and even downloaded to various members of TeamTLE to help protect the massive library of communication with Michael. Let's hope we do not have any further issues. Troy

    Some of you may have noticed that I've been laying low lately, and even getting a bit behind in some of my scheduling, including the Energy Report, Community Challenges/winners, etc. The main reason is that of both good news and bad news. The good news is that I am on a fast track to reversing my diabetes diagnosis. Whatever I am doing, I am doing right, and I am completely in the clear at the moment. In addition to my vegan diet, I mainly reduced processed fats, oils, which we are finding out is shockingly bad for even the healthiest of us. Yes, even coconut oil. Oils are of the most highly processed foods we can consume, and we consume a LOT more than we realize. I also mostly cut out the only source of high fructose corn syrup in my diet: American Coke. It turns out I can actually drink Mexican Coke without much impact because it is made from cane sugar and not from highly processed corn syrup. It turns out that we are finding out that sugar (at least, natural sugar) is not as linked to diabetes as we once thought it was. I've also increased my movement/exercise, so that helped a lot. Because I've done so well on my personal changes, I was able to be taken off of insulin fairly quickly! The doctor said my body is producing plenty of insulin, so they wanted to switch me over to a drug that just helps my body use my own insulin better. If I continue with stable and healthy readings, then they will scale that back and I will experiment with no medicine beyond the lifestyle/dietary changes. The bad news is that this new drug has a huge wall of adjustment period that brings with it extreme nausea, extreme fatigue, extreme lack of focus and clarity, extreme irritability, extreme appetite suppression, and other issues I won't go into because I am too classy. lol Needless to say, this has been a shock to my system. The drug is Victoza, so if any of you are familiar with it, high five me on enduring this shit. I have been a wreck. My food intake dropped by 90%. I am not kidding. That's not necessarily a bad thing because I was probably overeating, but holy shit. To stop eating like that was bizarre. I had no appetite and everything made me feel sick to my stomach. I would eat two bites of a whole meal. Literally... two. bites. @DianeHB visited during all of this and can vouch for the stack of nearly complete meals piling in the refrigerator because I would only eat two bites. We also had a mini TLE gathering at a restaurant and despite the incredible food, my plate sat nearly untouched. And I was totally bitchy and whiny and moaning all the time to anyone who would endure me. When alone all I could do is curl up and writhe myself to sleep to escape the aching. I asked my doctor about all of this and she said to "power through it," because it is normal and can take about 3 - 4 months to adjust! WTF?? I'm into my second month and it is actually getting better, but it has been a very disruptive experience, especially for the art of channeling. I apologize to anyone who has been affected, and to the community for delaying the Energy Report, Calendar updates, and Community Challenge events. It has been all I could do to just get through a day of work. As of now, I am still on this drug and will trust the doctors because they have been very progressive and very encouraging of dietary and natural remedies over medication, but they swear by this particular drug as a way to help in that process. They have always been encouraging of my trying alternatives to medicine and never pushed anything on me, so when they ask that I power through now, I will trust that process until I can't. If it means helping reverse the entire diagnosis, I am all for it. Thank you for hanging in there with me! I will continue to try to focus on updating the site and tending to my schedule as I feel better! Here's to health and prosperity for all, because it sucks when either of these is threatened. I love you guys! Troy

    MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We have received Troy's request and understand. We will respond. What we have done is look at each of you in attendance today and assessed a common theme among you. We will address this theme and then address each of you in regard to that theme. We also know that we are not speaking only to those in attendance today. What we share may help address those who attend in another time and format. From what we can see, each of you, regardless of what is happening in your life, what is demanding of you, what is distracting you, what is bringing you happiness, what is bringing you joy, what is challenging you, what is lifting you, each of you are struggling with a theme of DEFEAT. We are using this term to capture a wide range of Defeat that comes from existential crisis. There is something, someone, or some undercurrent that is wearing at each of you and it is all you can do to stay as many steps ahead of a wave of total defeat as you can. For the past 2 to 5 years, each of you appear to have been relying on great strength, support, insight, confidence, wisdom, patience, etc. to stay as many steps ahead of this sense of defeat that is trailing just behind you. It is exhausting. In the past year, some of you may have begun to feel as if you are at a breaking point. The truth is, none of you will ever "give up." None of you will. None of you are interested in resigning in any way. You have been "fighting" far too long for this haunting defeat to get the best of you. But this theme of defeat is demoralizing. Whether from world events or personal events, or a combination of both, the wave of powerlessness and defeat has reduced your sense of presence and participation in this life to some extent. Even if you are involved and active, there is a part of you that is not. A great part of you. A part of you that simply wants something better and knows that it does not have to be this hard. Here is something to consider: THIS HAPPENS IN EVERY LIFETIME, IN EVERY LIFE, IN EVERY PERSON, IN EVERY TIME. World events and personal events are incidental. They are details. From your first lifetime to your last, you will have a wave of existential crisis. In your earlier lifetimes, it manifests in ways that simply prompted reactionary defenses that blindly lash out against the experience. As you wake up and evolve and are aware within a lifetime, you begin to find the correlations between your crisis and events. The irony is that this moment for anyone in any Soul Age is triggered by a moment of contact with Essence. For those of you who are older souls who sustain those moments of contact, the effect can be quite challenging. The more you are in contact with Essence, the more you Manifest Essence, the more you live AS Essence, the deeper into an existential crisis your Personality can go. It is not about Trump. It is not about your lost love. It is not about your lack of direction or motivation. It is not about your fellow human beings and their idiocy. It is not about life or your life, at all. It is about the process of grasping your infinity while finite. The more you are in contact with that vastness of infinity, the more you may turn your focus to the "comforts" of the finite. This points you toward the important events of your current life and the short amount of time you have to resolve or solve these challenges. How can you embrace your vastness of infinity without losing all concerns for the challenges that are a reality in this finite form? If you exist in cycles that are GRAND and you are told that you have come and gone through many of those cycles, there must have been many things that felt desperately important and now you simply do not remember them or know a thing about those moments from other universes and times and places. How do you care about a life that is a blink in the vastness of existence? How do you embrace the vastness of existence while grieving loss or wishing for better or fighting for equality and peace? If you embrace your vastness, will you not care anymore? If you care too deeply, are you rejecting your vastness? Here is the "twist:" You and your life are a microcosm of your Essence and "the universe." The more you live as Essence, the more you care; the more you pay attention. The more it matters to you how a single day goes. The cumulative effect of caring how your day goes is the same cumulative effect that comes from your Essence caring about how a life goes. In other words, you are already reconciling your vastness of infinity while in finite form when you GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR EXISTENCE. When you care so much about how the next day will go for you, for your relationships, for your future, for your fellow humans, for the planet, for the animals, for life; when you care so much that it hurts, and you continue to care anyway, you have become the very heart of your infinite vastness. The aching and overwhelm you feel is because of how the body processes that vastness of caring. It is not quite designed to sustain that current of energy. This is why you find a teaching and teachers. Because you cannot simply leap into the vastness of your existence while in a body and expect to sustain that current of energy. It is an energy that is no different from what an Infinite Soul must sustain. And it will "burn up" the circuitry of you. The existential crisis comes in every lifetime for every Personality, and it is often ignored or blindly buried, but for the older soul, you embrace the hurting. You sit with it. You carry it. And you learn better how to sit with it and carry it so that it is transformed from hurting and into power, peace, and presence. Your teachers and your teachings help you to navigate, manage, and understand that this current of caring THIS MUCH about a person, about a life, yourself, a relationship, the future, the planet, etc is a POWER, not a burden. It is a responsibility, not an imposition. A choice, not an interference. The work you do in this single lifetime regarding what you care about is what propels your vastness of existence in infinity. We have told all of you that once you exist, you cannot unexist. This is true on all levels from your individual Personalities to your Roles in Essence and Essence, itself. However, you also cannot UN-CARE. Why do you think you exist through an entire Grand Cycle and into many more? Why do you think you "leave" Tao and return to cycles of incarnation through various species in different star systems and universes? Because you care. Because ALL OF IT MATTERS TO YOU. You cannot exist without caring. You cannot. It is one of only a few impossibilities. And so, in every lifetime, you come to a crisis point where you must learn how to care so much that it hurts, and then grow bigger still than that hurt. It does not matter how big or small the thing is that you care about. It does not matter how private and personal that thing is or how shared and public and grand that thing is. It is the caring that matters. How you live this life and navigate how you care is a microcosmic reflection of the evolution of your soul, of you AS a soul. Your Essence has no shame in the depth that it cares about you. You can practice unapologetically caring deeply for humanity, for life, for your relationship, for your well-being, etc. Whatever prompts your caring, even if it is confusing and hurts, is a piece of your vastness being expressed. Transform the experience of impending defeat and demoralizing into an empowerment that you shamelessly own as your right of existence. You need not run from defeat any longer. You need not question your value and point of existence when you care so deeply about something that is well beyond your control. You need not turn your caring into a liability that must be reduced or masked in anger or frustration. Care. That is all you need to do. Just care. Sometimes you can do something about that, and sometimes you cannot, but you can always care. Caring, like Existence, is a constant. Neither are dependent upon being all-powerful. When you do not know what to do, it can hurt. Let that sense of hurting be a reminder to care for yourself at that point. When you cannot be all powerful in helping those things you care about, you can always remember to include your self-care. It will not take away from the care you have for anything or anyone else. When you "care so much it hurts," it is because you have left yourself out of the equation of caring. WE WILL ADDRESS EACH OF YOU WITH A MESSAGE NOW THAT MAY TOUCH ON THE PATTERNS OF WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT ANN - The pattern we see for you is that you care deeply about being RELEVANT. We encourage you to continue to care about this. Care deeply about this. Expand your definition of it and carefully consider an update to what it means and what it looks like and how it can be nurtured. Your caring about being relevant is not a superficial concern. It is a desire to create and communicate and disseminate. You are not done saying what you have to say. It is okay to care about this. CONG - The pattern we see for you is that you care deeply about THE FUTURE. It is difficult to care so deeply about the future because it never arrives. It is always just out of reach, always in a vague state of potential and possibility. But that is why you care. You pay close attention to your choices, your direction, your focus, your priorities and the people who are a part of this because you are nurturing an empowered relationship of existence between the past, present, and future so that these co-exist in everything you do. LUCIANA - The pattern we see in you is that you care deeply about BEING SEEN. You care deeply about who you are and how you are and what that looks like to yourself and to others. This is not a shallow or shameful thing to care about. You are experimenting with SELF-REFLECTION. It is one thing to simply exist and BE, but quite another to SEE and BE SEEN. However vast you are, observation snaps you into form in some way and you are exploring all of the ways that you "snap into form" through your own eyes and the eyes of others, so you can better learn how to create the story of who you are, rather than let it be told by others. MAUREEN - The pattern we see in you is that you care deeply about BEING RIGHT. This can show up in combative ways within yourself and even around you, but that is because you are still exploring the concept on different levels. When we use the term "right," we use it to refer to an alignment with Truth, Love, and Beauty/Energy, such as RIGHT WORK, RIGHT ACTION. It matters deeply to you that you are Right, that you are in alignment with the highest values of this universe and how they play out in your life and the world. It is painful to sustain this sense of Being Right when there is so much "wrong," and so your fight can sometimes fall into being "correct" or being vindicated or being justified. Those are simply lower and more accessible ways of tapping into what you care about, but it is never about being correct or justified or vindicated. It is always a cry from within you to stand strong as a beacon of alignment with remembering what is True, what is Love, and what is Beautiful. To help clarify this for you, Maureen, it may be more fitting to say that you care deeply about RIGHT BEING, rather than Being Right. RACHEL - The pattern we can see in you is that you care deeply about WHERE TO STAND. This may seem to be a vague phrase, but it is quite specific. You care deeply about taking a position in your life, with other people, with your creativity, with your relationships, etc. in a way that profoundly represents the truth of your being. However, you are still trying to figure out what this truth of your being is. You cannot take a stand or hold a position until you feel you have a comfortable grasp what you know is true for you and about you. This exploration can leave you feeling as if you have no foundation upon which to stand or be in relation to others and your dreams. Give yourself the time and space to create that foundation. It matters to you to take a position that you trust and care about and that reflects your passion. It could be said that what you care about is the evolution of your passion and learning how to let that represent you in the world. SUSAN - What we can see in your patterns is that you care deeply about PRESERVATION. There is a deep desire within you to help repair, preserve, conserve, protect, serve, restore, etc. various ecosystems within your life and the lives of others. These "ecosystems" may be bodies, may be relationships, may be environmental, may be ideas, but it matters to you to care that these systems are noticed and nurtured and remembered and even pointed out for others to consider. We use the term "preservation" because it is matters to you that they last, that these systems carry you and others forward wherever that may be, but forward, regardless. Some of the general struggles you may have in your life may relate to your caring about preserving and restoring and repairing all of the systems that you know make a difference and need someone to heal these. UMA - From what we can see in your patterns is that you care deeply about BEING INCLUDED. You care so deeply about this that it hurts. It hurts when you feel excluded and it hurts to exclude and it hurts when you see others are excluded or exclude themselves. Any breakdown in a network of caring and creating is devastating, both in personal terms and in global terms. You know that Being Included must stand as a permanent invitation and vulnerability and you refuse to resign from upholding a state of inclusion for yourself and others. This does not mean you have no boundaries or that you will not say No, or hear someone say No. You know that inclusion cannot be forced. And that is why it can be painful when you must simply stand as an invitation and watch how it unfolds. BOBBY - What we can see as a pattern in you is that you care deeply about CONTRIBUTING. You are a giver. However guarded or isolated or open or involved you are with others and the world, it has always mattered to you what you GIVE. It is painful when you cannot give or when what you give is not enough or even too much or not what is wanted. But you continue to give when you can and how you can. The greatest gift you have found that you can give when you are out of everything and resources are low and even energy is low, is JOY. You give kindness, a smile, a joke, a tease, anything that could provoke a moment of joy. This ensures that you are contributing in some way, somehow, any how. It is baffling to you when others cannot seem to make that same effort, but it does not stop you. You care deeply about participating in life and are, quite frankly, in awe of life, and so you give as much life as you can. When you feel the shadow of defeat chasing after you, it is because you may have forgotten to give some of that life to yourself, or you have suddenly decided to grade yourself on just how much you are contributing. And finally, TROY - Your patterns reveal that what you care deeply about is INTEGRITY. Regardless of your passions and interests and paths, they are created from a deep caring for honesty, principles, decency, trust, etc. Every focus of activism or play or fight or communication is about upholding that Integrity. It is painful to see others undermine their integrity through hypocrisy or through compartmentalization or through denial. It is overwhelming and exhausting to monitor yourself and others in terms of calling out where integrity is threatened or in danger of collapsing. From animal rights to human rights to the work you do with us to your interest in movies and music and even gaming, the motivation and passion of focus comes from that deep caring for Integrity and where that is represented in art, communication, humanity, etc. For each of you, we can continue our discussion with you individually in other formats regarding what we describe as what we see you care so deeply about. We know you may have questions or comments regarding these words from us. We also suggest that you consider these to be only words from us, not conclusive statements. The words we shared today about you are from our perception and assessment, not from a static record. You may care about other things that stand out to you far more than what we see today. Let yourself care about what you care about and allow it to be a strength for you, not a shame or liability or pain. Let the hurt be a reminder to care about yourself, but know that some of that hurt is only your growing pains. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    Please excuse the sloppy channeling. I have been struggling with the weight of stress, anxiety, and depression for weeks now and I'm trying to shake it off and get back to work with Michael. This report is acceptable, but not as coherent as I usually prefer it to be. I just wanted to get it out before we got too far into April. Thank you for your understanding.

    ENERGY REPORT February 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) FEBRUARY brings with it a continuation of the Self-Destruction from 2019 for Baby and Young Souls who are still struggling with how to maintain strict and familiar order or power over others in a Mature world that is all but done with order for the sake of order and power over others rather than power with others. The Mature Soul world asks questions and looks for ways to share. If there is beneficial order that serves many, it will be maintained and improved, but order that only serves to keep some people in power while others are kept in subservience cannot be sustained much longer. Those Baby and Young Souls who refuse to allow room for variations on order and power find that they are willing to either destroy those who do not comply or destroy themselves. Mature and Old Souls may have a difficult time ignoring or avoiding the effects of those amplifying last year’s Self-Destruction, but this is showing up in many of our students as an early emphasis on Self-deprecation. A feeling of not being good enough, or that expectations are being failed, and that standards are too high to be reached, or that you are not being seen or heard. If our students are feeling this early emphasis on Self-deprecation, it would be helpful to remember that there are times when things or people will not be good enough, including you, and that expectations can be failed, and that sometimes people do not see or hear clearly. Those are natural and normal parts of experiencing existence. They are not to be feared or avoided. They are to be dealt with and navigated in a way that helps you to adapt, regroup, replan, or otherwise improve upon your own self-esteem and confidence. Disappointment and not being good enough are pieces of information that can help one to either learn and improve or choose a different direction, but they are not conclusive condemnations to be feared. This true if you are the one disappointed or if you are the one who disappointed. If someone fails you, assess the damage and make the choices that need to be made, or help support them in their improvement. If you fail someone, assess the damage and make the choices that need to be made, or help yourself to reach the expectations by using what you learned, not using it against yourself. The Goal of Submission may help as the year continues, bringing into emphasis an awareness of how best to participate in the world and in your life in ways that benefit both yourself and others, not just yourself and not just others. When there is mutual benefit, there is Devotion, the Positive Pole. When there is a one-way benefit, there is Subservience, the Negative Pole. As the potential turbulence of the year unfolds within our students and around our students, it can be helpful to return your focus to kindness, no matter what the situation or scenario. There is a way to navigate challenges and frustrations and fears while also being kind to yourself and to others. There are times when actions can seem unkind, but if they are actions that are taken to truly help benefit others and yourself, it is still kindness. Fighting for equality, shouting for rights and protections, and shutting down those who are out to harm others are all forms of kindness. Keep this in mind as you navigate your feelings, your choices, your actions, and your thoughts. IS THIS KIND? AM I BEING KIND? These can help you fine-tune those feelings, choices, actions, and thoughts so that they do carry with them any feelings, choices, actions, or thoughts that unnecessarily complicate or harm. If you are frustrated with yourself, bring kindness to your responses. If you are frustrated with politics, society, technology, corporations, leaders, followers, etc., bring kindness to your responses. In other words, it can be quite empowering to do all you can to not make things worse than they have to be or than they already are. Speak up, step up, correct others, correct yourself, inform, share opinions, share frustrations, etc, but bring kindness with you. If you can answer that your feelings, actions, choices, and thoughts are including kindness, it is likely that you can make a more beneficial difference than otherwise. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): NO ISOLATED ENERGY SHIFTS IN FEBRUARY February 28th - 29th -- NEXUS -- DIVERGENCE - This Nexus appears to bring with it a kind of momentum launched by an ultimatum and/or threat that brings clarity and focus. This is not an ominous prediction, but the best way we can describe a pattern coming to a turning point on a collective scale. The reactions to this Nexus would likely generate a divergence for explorations of different outcomes over the next 5 to 10 years. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER FEBRUARY: LOVE SAVES THE DAY - February and 2020, in general, look to be about a fairly challenging and chaotic year, but there are no circumstances that can prevent anyone from loving others and themselves and being kind to others and themselves. When you are at your lowest or your most frustrated and angry, or at your most fulfilled and prosperous, take a moment to love. Truly love. Love yourself and love anyone you can with as much sensation and affection as possible to share. Love quietly, love loudly, love in person or far away, but love. When it has been said that “love saves the day,” it was never meant that Love could eliminate all challenges and pain and struggle or suffering. “Love Saves The Day” simply means that you can get through another day, just one more day, and getting through to just one more day is how you can, eventually, “save the day” on a broader scale. There are no guarantees, but when you bring love to your day, it improves the possibilities for everyone. (NOTE: we know this phrase is cliche, but we are not above using the cliches that work.)

    ENERGY REPORT July 2018 2018 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY shifts the collective emphasis away from Power Mode and brings a collective emphasis to the Attitude of Pragmatist. The Attitudes describe one’s primary perspective, how one interprets the inner and outer world of events and experiences. How one interprets events and experiences in the life directly informs one’s actions, thoughts, feelings, and choices. This is why the Attitude tends to be the “hub” of every Personality. How one sees the inner and outer world matters. When the Attitude falls into the Negative Pole, this cascades through the Personality and takes the entire Overleaf system into the Negative Poles. If the Attitude can be returned to the Positive Pole, the rest of the Overleaves tend to follow. The Pragmatist sees the world in terms of efficiency. Whatever works, works. Whatever is seen as the most direct route between A and B is prioritized. The Pragmatist is at the center of all other Attitudes, so if it makes more sense to “slide” to Idealist, or Realist, the Pragmatist will use her Idealism or Realism as a means of efficiency. This gives the Pragmatist many options for how to navigate effectively. In the Positive Pole, the Pragmatist is PRACTICAL. This Pragmatist sees the world in terms of what will work. This Pragmatist is willing to do things differently if it means being more efficient. This Pragmatist is flexible and always assessing the dynamics of life in a way that improves processes, both internally and externally. This Pragmatist will “slide” to any other Attitude as a way of preventing blind spots and assumptions, looking at the world from different angles to assess the best options. In the Negative Pole, the Pragmatist is DOGMATIC. This Pragmatist sees the world in terms of what once worked. This Pragmatist assumes that what once worked will always work and insists and demands that this method be used in every similar situation. This Pragmatist also “slides” to other Attitudes, but only as a means of justifying their Dogma. This Pragmatist tends to lock onto another Attitude and use its Negative Pole to fortify the Dogma. This Pragmatist sees only what he wants to see and then thinks, feels, acts, and chooses based on the rigidity of perspective. The priority for the Dogmatic Pragmatist is to be right, to make the world comply to his expectations, and to ignore all indications or input to the contrary. July brings with it a dive into Dogma. All of the Overleaves are in effect all year while the “seasons” bring with them an emphasis on certain parts of the Overleaves, so Pragmatism has already been in effect and has been in Dogma from the start. July simply brings this into focus. The world stage will likely become a showcase of Dogmatic Pragmatists colliding with each other and who will stop at nothing as they push forward, refusing input that does not support what they have decided works best, regardless of the outcome. The outcome is not important for the Dogmatic Pragmatist, only the process. For those in Dogma, when the process leads to disaster, the disaster is not considered as relevant. The process is the priority, and success is determined by whether the Pragmatist was able to adhere to what he determined was the best path, rather than whether the path gave the best results. As Dogma comes into focus over July on the world stage and collectively, we see many of our students and non-students quickly aiming for the Positive Pole in PRACTICAL Pragmatism to help address the Dogmatic Pragmatism that is escalating. This is an aim in the personal life as well as in how one participates in the world. Many of our students are evaluating what they can do differently, evaluating alternatives to what they have always felt used to work for them, reconsidering how they see themselves and others, reconsidering the routines, habits, and familiar ways that have been in place for most of the life. This is how the Positive Pole of Pragmatism works. As many of our students know, the Assimilative Overleaf can “slide” to all other Overleaves, so Pragmatist can slide to Skeptic, Cynic, Realist, etc. It is often forgotten that all other Overleaves can also slide to the Assimilative Overleaf, so those who are Skeptic, Cynic, and Realist, for example, can also slide to Pragmatist. Regardless of your own Attitude, you are likely sliding to Pragmatist as a means of evaluating how you see yourself, see the world, see yourself in the world, and assessing what patterns may no longer work for you or for your worlds. You may be assessing how your patterns contribute to or take away from both your inner and outer worlds. To do this, you will also enter Pragmatism through Dogma, first. This means that you will likely see a daunting range of routines, patterns, traditions, and familiarity that you see you have taken for granted, or that have always worked for you, or that you wish could continue to work for you, but may require change. As you enter your exploration of Dogma, it will be important to remember that Dogma is only the case if you refuse to change a pattern that you know you must change. You are assessing yourself in terms of what has the potential to be or become Dogma, and then aim for more Practical solutions. This is not new to any of you this year. This assessment has been in place all year. However, the work of bringing about Practical changes now comes into focus more than at any other point in the year for most of our students. It is a “now or never” shift that is on the horizon for most of our students regarding participation in a shift of collective patterns across Sentience. From the most intimate and private of changes to the most globally relevant of changes, nearly every student we know is considering how to put into action that which will alter patterns that have potential to become Dogmatic. Most of the population beyond our students are considering their perspectives in the same way. However, many Young and Baby Souls are locked in Dogma and will push that Dogma with all of the power they have. July through September look to be quite turbulent, even to the point of major geological events reflecting the inner turmoil of humanity. Economic and Social stabilities around the world are precarious at the moment. The need for change is great, and the need for Practical Pragmatism is becoming clear to many. Ironically, because of the precarious nature of patterns at the moment, we cannot see probabilities clearly enough to assess the likelihood of what is to come. Earlier in the year, we saw probabilities for June or July to begin a Breaking or Turning Point. The first of those key events have come with the resignation of a member of the United States Supreme Court. This may seem to be a local event that would only affect the United States, but this key event is part of a delicate and fragile system that is long overdue for an overhaul. The Breaking or Turning Point for this overhaul will affect the planet. There are more key moments to come across July. As you navigate July, August, and September, the display of Dogma in the world may be quite daunting, but your personal assessment of where you may have fallen into Dogma or could potentially fall into Dogma can help bring changes internally and externally in ways that help move you and your world toward the Positive Poles of every Attitude. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): July 12th - July 27th -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE/DIVERGENCE - This window of Nexus is a mix of both Convergences and Divergences that are wholly unpredictable even in terms of probability at the moment. We will assess on the other side of this Nexus in our next Energy Report. We can only suggest to our students that they do their best to focus on personal changes that have been deemed relevant and practical and helpful for both the inner and outer worlds as a way to sustain a sense of footing and grounding over this Nexus. This unusual Nexus may be obvious to some and simply more of the same to others. We cannot offer a definitive standard that will help our students recognize symptoms or validation of this Nexus. We can say that it will likely carry a sense of acceleration, escalation, and intensity. July 12th - 27th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- SHOCK/GROUNDING -- The Nexus brings with it an accompanying and daily Energy Shift that will likely shift between Shock and Grounding. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: THIS IS ONLY A PART OF THE STORY - Wherever you are in your life, wherever humanity is in its progress, whatever the past, whatever the likely future, and whatever the present, there is never a moment when the story is over. Every moment, decade, era, century, lifetime, and even Grand Cycle is only a part of the story. It can be quite helpful to remember this when you feel you can only see an end or no end for a particularly challenging story. This is only a part of the story, and your part in that story matters.

    ENERGY REPORT November 2018 2018 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) NOVEMBER brings a deep dive into Greed as introduced into emphasis in October. Greed is the fear of not having enough and it tends to fixate on what is feared to be lacking. This year the Greed is directly tied to and fixated on POWER. It is fairly easy to see how this is playing out in the world around you, but it is hitting our students in quite painful ways, as well. Even if you are not inclined toward Greed and have never had this as a Chief Feature of your Personality, it is likely that you are struggling with the fear of lacking power. This is a year of great challenges to the concept and application of Power, both in terms of the Overleaf and in terms of influence in the world. We have discussed in depth the concept and application of Power in our previous reports, and it would be helpful to review those exchanges for insight. The earlier part of the year had a focus on how better to understand and use your power of presence in your choices and actions, but October, November, and December bring an emphasis on exploring where you are lacking power. Keep in mind that GREED is the FEAR OF LACK. It is not about actually lacking or not having enough, it is about the FEAR of lacking or not having enough. There will always be times when you do not have enough of a thing and this is something that one must learn to navigate as a part of life. But when you fear this lack, you will tend to overcompensate, fixate, hoard, and panic. There will be times when you do not have enough food, not enough water, not enough heat, not enough sex, not enough money, not enough creativity, vision, clothes, ideas, compassion, etc. Most of the time when there is “not enough” there actually is enough, but you have to use what you have in a way that gets the most out of it. Other times, there is legitimately not enough and you must find or create alternatives or endure through scarcity until you have more. There are times when you must be thoughtful and practical and budget what you have so that you can reduce the effects of scarcity. All of this is very different from what Greed brings. Greed is never about legitimate lack or scarcity, but about fearing that lack and scarcity, so Greed convinces you that you do not have enough even as you have plenty. Greed convinces you that others have more and that is why you have less. Greed convinces you that you must take from others as a way to have more. Greed can be fairly obvious in how it shows up in the world through younger souls. There are many who have plenty of money yet seek to take more money from those with less money. There are many with plenty of security and sanctuary who seek to take away the security and sanctuary of others as a way to feel as if they have greater security and sanctuary. There are many in power who have plenty of power and yet they seek to take even more power from those with less power. Greed shows up for the older soul in more abstract ways. Most older souls will know that any lack of food, money, and even water are parts of the gamble and navigation of being in the Physical Plane, even as they may wish for more or seek to obtain more. Greed rarely shows up for Older Souls for this reason. You may not enjoy lacking these things, and life may become perilous because of lacking these things, but most of you do not live in fear of lacking in them. This is not said to undermine the very serious impact of lack in a lifetime, but we point this out because there is a difference between navigating legitimate hardships in life and living in fear of them when you are under no threat. For most of our students, Greed is likely to be showing up as a fear of lack in power, not as a power OVER others such as the younger souls fear to lose, but more as a lack of power WITH others. This is important to note because most of the dread and anxiety and fear that may come up around Greed is because the older soul fears that there are not enough people taking a stand, standing together, standing for the same things. There is a fear of not enough cohesion and community and commitment. The older soul is so used to navigating life on her own and being as responsible for that life as she can be, she tends to miss out on the inherent trust that can extend to others as a network of power that can bring change. As you move through November, it will be important to remember that you are not alone, that you are not carrying the weight of the world alone, and that you are surrounded by millions who wish to stand together and share in the power necessary to bring great change. Many are scared and uncertain and need help and guidance and access and information, but you are not lacking in power. As you move through November, it will be important to remember that those who take power from others must continue to take power and this cannot be done for long, though we know this is not comforting. It will always fail. It will never last. It is not true power. False power can have a profound and deep impact, but never in a beneficial way, The power you share with others in the face of false power generates effects that heal generations to come. The power you share with others in the face of false power creates the paradigm shifts that dismantle false power. Our point is that you are not without Power. If you fear that you lack power, it is because you may have forgotten that your greatest power comes in the sharing of power. Find your empowerment family. Create your family of empowerment. Invite others to share in your power. Look for others who are inviting you to share in their power. Make your choices and take actions as a contribution to the greater spectrum of power rather than assuming you must make choices and take actions that carry all of the power. October likely pointed out where you feel you have the least power, and November will likely be the invitation to solutions for how to nurture, sustain, and share in ways that help increase your True Power. The rest of the world will look to be consumed by Greed, but our students will likely be focusing on improving their relationship to Power and how better to share in that so that false power can be dismantled sooner than later. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): November 5th - 11th -- NEXUS -- UNKNOWN - This is a powerful Nexus that will likely result in being a Divergence, but we are not certain. This looks to be either a surreal shift toward empowerment or a surreal shock of reassessment of power. November 11th - 27th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- COMPOSURE -- This looks to be an Energy Shift with a focus on regrouping, refocusing, and bracing for a new level of intense focus as a means of moving forward. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER NOVEMBER: CONTINUE TO STAY AWAKE - This will be a theme of thought for the rest of the year. It is important to stay awake and not “check out” or abandon your power of choice and action and contribution. Stay awake. However empowered or challenged you feel, it will be vital to stay awake. By “stay awake” we mean that you allow your feelings, your passions, your frustrations, your anger, your pleasures and joy and moments of brilliance and darkness. Allow the spectrum of who you are as you focus on where you are going. Stay awake. Stay alive.

    ENERGY REPORT February 2017 2017 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) February brings a doubling down, so to speak, on the Goal of Submission. The Positive Pole of Devotion among those who commit to a cause is still going strong fueled by Compassion of the Priest energy, while the Negative Pole of unquestioning and obedience through Subservience is continuing to further entrench itself into the year, driven by those who have locked into the Zeal of the Priest energy. One of the primary concerns for our students and those who are contributing to the collective Devotion and Compassion momentum is the concept of Elegance. The year was launched with a fury and flurry of energy that cannot be sustained. Those pushing the patterns of Subservience and Zeal are likely to discover this sooner than later, but even those with the passion fueling Devotion and Compassion soon discover the “burn out.” Elegance helps relieve this concern. Elegance is a process of harnessing fury and stretching this out into calmness. Elegance is ingeniousness, simplicity, and pleasure. In other words, the momentum of Devotion and Compassion must pace itself and begin measures that funnel energy into simplicity, pleasures, and ingenious solutions that make the absolute most of the energy at hand so that energy can replenish to sustain momentum. Many of our students may have felt the fury and flurry in January, but now feel the stutter and stall. This is one of the reasons many efforts to sustain a Cause to full success can fail. The greater the obstacles related to the Cause, the greater the necessity for Elegance. What we can suggest then for our students who are participating in the energy of this year is to look for ways to contribute that fulfill one or both of these criteria: Simplicity - taking part in a march, a protest, donating money, sharing information, etc. are examples of simplicity. Simplicity in this case means being able to show up without losing yourself. If you are participating in larger scale organization tactics then ensure that delegation is clear and concise so that the effort is spread among many. The point of Simplicity is only that your efforts allow for rest. This is vital. Pleasure - this may seem counter to the state of mind and heart one may have when involved in a Cause, but that is exactly what it is: a state of mind and heart. If you approach a Cause with despair and defeat, your energy is cut by half at the very least. If you approach a Cause with a sense of passion for the aim, a confidence in the effectiveness, a trust in your power and presence, this is pleasure. More importantly, pay attention to the effectiveness of the efforts. Every little pillar of support and ramp of progress is worth acknowledging and celebrating. Let yourself and others know that actions are fulfilling the Cause. In short, give and receive the credit freely and openly. This helps keep your spirits up and generates energy to sustain Devotion and Compassion. The above may seem overly simplistic and optimistic, but that is because they are. That is the point. One cannot fulfill a Cause by moving forward in dread and despair. This is not to say that dread and despair can be avoided, but that those are not the fuel for a Cause. Feelings of dread and despair are yours to use as you wish, but allow them to stay unhooked from your Cause. Cry, feel defeated, feel anxious and worried and even hateful, but let that be “on your own time,” so to speak. A Cause that is fueled by Devotion and Compassion tends not to be limited in benefit to a single person, but for the sake of many. Allow your Cause to be fueled by your passion, simply and confidently, while giving yourself the personal space to grieve and recover. February may be exhausting and daunting at times, but if you can return to Elegance through Simplicity and Pleasure, you may find a new way to use the fuel of your life, and/or access new depths of fuel. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): February 6th - 8th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- POTENTIAL SHOCK - Our dates of interest are never predictions, only probabilities, so we do not know if this shift will come to form. However, we see a pattern leading to some sort of disruptive shock, surprise, and a bit of chaos over these dates. If this happens on a global scale, it will be known, but if this is more subtle on an individual scale it may show up more obviously at a later date. We will look at this again later in the month with you. February 26th - March 2nd -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - This looks to be one of the first large-scale Divergent Nexus of the year, and from what we can tell it may bring with it the first signs of what may be experienced as Relief. This Divergence looks to be a kind of “exit ramp” for those more interested in extreme versions of this current reality, and removing that element from “here” can help improve morale for many of our students. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER February: K.I.S.S. - Keep It Super Simple - With all of your angst, anger, fear, terror, frustration, anxiety, dread, and all of your passion, love, intent, consciousness, kindness, compassion, and devotion, you have a lot of energy churning and this can distort your access to the Higher Emotional Center energy of this year that allows you synthesize all of the input from life into some Intuitive sense, and/or sustain a sense of Love with clear heart and vision for your Cause. Remembering to K.I.S.S. can help you to remember that you need affection, rest, and some amount of joy to take back to your Cause, and that it is okay to leave your messier frustrations and fears for your downtime to process. NOTE: when we speak of your Cause in this year’s reports, we know that not all students will have a declarative Cause for which they stand. In cases where there is no obvious external Cause, we speak in terms of your personal Cause that may be your healing, your recovery, your relationship, your creative projects. A Cause is anything that is important to you that you know brings benefit, value, and pleasure to others. So even if your Cause is quiet, personal, and private, it is likely one that others would benefit from because of you.

    ENERGY REPORT December 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) DECEMBER brings a final but full dive into Self-Destruction so that those who are being consumed by this fear will likely collapse into extremes of Greed as a means of countering the Self-Destruction. Greed shares an axis with Self-Destruction as these are two “sides” of the same fear around one’s value and meaning in existence. Self-Destruction defends against fears of worthlessness, meaninglessness, and emptiness. When Self-Destruction becomes extreme it can slide to Greed as a form of amplified and extreme defense. When Self-Destruction slides to Greed, the experience is something like that of a “black hole” that consumes everything in its path as a way to compensate for lack of worth and meaning. Rather than imploding, this version of Self-Destruction seeks to destroy and/or consume that which has meaning and value for everyone else. We cannot and will not predict, but we can say that probabilities are high for some explosive display of Self-Destruction exemplified on a collective level in the world over December. This may show up in sharp bursts in local scenarios and/or on a larger scale where it becomes clear that the age of regressive values is ending and desperate lashing out escalates. Those who are interpreting social and political progress as a threat to traditional and established values are likely to be lashing out in final attempts to defend against their fears of losing their value and worth in the world. In most scenarios that we can see, these explosive instances are likely seen as a “good sign” in the scheme of things. Evolution and expansion of social value and meaning only strip out the limitations of those established values and meanings. Nothing but the limitations is lost. The values that support value and meaning are carried forward. For example, Baby Soul values of order, civility, and institutions are values that continue to be meaningful for every Soul Age. Order, Civility, and Institutions can develop systems of oppression, marginalized classes, and the imposition of ideals so when progress and evolution come, these limitations are stripped from the legitimately meaningful uses of Order, Civility and Institutions. For those who are invested in the limited values of oppression, marginalization, and imposition, progress is painful. For those who choose to elevate the values of Order, Civility, and Institutions, progress is exciting and meaningful. As the Mature Soul Age comes to be anchored and momentum increases, the meaningful values of the past Soul Age paradigms are carried forward and elevated, but the limited and restrictive uses of those values are left behind. It has become clear in many ways who are invested in and attached to the limited values of the past and who seek to move forward with elevation and expansion. On a more personal level, we can say that we see most of our students coming out of and rising out of any effects that Self-Destruction they may have had over the past 11 months or so. This may come slowly or in bursts of clarity and energy over December, but most of our students are likely to feel this relief. Any collective displays of Self-Destruction/Greed will likely be seen as a natural display of the last gasps of resistance to collective evolution, even if it is a difficult display. On this personal level of rising out of any effects of Self-Destruction, our students may see more clearly what systems have been in place in their own lives that have locked them in limited ideas and ideals about their value and meaning in life. Many of our students may realize the absurdity of their attachment, investment, and even blindness to their own patterns of behavior, choices, or paths that have served only to lock them in an outdated and outgrown sense of self. December may bring a sense of catching up with yourself in ways that forgive your sadness and confusion over the past many months or even years and open you up to inviting an updated and progressive system of value and meaning more fitting for who you are NOW. We suggest that you allow yourself to have December to catch up with yourself, and then go from there into the new year to explore who and how you are as a person free of limited and outdated values that no longer serve you. We will return to this subject in further detail in January. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): December 8th - 12th -- Energy Shift -- RELEASE/COLLAPSE -- This shift brings with it an energy that supports a final look at any investments one has in outdated and limited values and a new look at an elevated, updated, and more meaningful set of values that support progress. For those who embrace this progress, there may come a sense of relief and release as you allow those attachments to dissolve. For those who are desperately attached to these outdated and limited values, this is likely a shift that brings a momentum of collapse. December 21st - 27th -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - This Nexus brings with it a kind of Infinite Soul “check-in” that either contributes to the eventual Manifestation of Infinite Soul or to the eventual retraction of the Infinite Soul. This Convergence brings with it all of the parallels that are closest together in a collective commitment to collective evolution and healing, or those closest together in a collective trajectory of self-destruction and further wounding. This may be a window where our students can see or sense more clearly which direction humanity is heading. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER DECEMBER: THIS IS OUR TIME - December may be a good time for playing with the concept that this is not just your life, not just about you, and that life is not just personal. However private and personal a life may be, it contributes to the fabric of shared reality and collective evolution. No single life is ever an isolated event. Every life is a contribution. Every life matters. Every choice helps shape the future of everyone. However distant, private, and personal your life may seem, consider yourself as part of something bigger, something vast and beautiful, something meaningful in ways that are not always obvious in the routines and demands of being alive. You are part of a movement, a part of the world, a part of humanity. Whether you like it or not, or know it or not, or can see it or not, you are alive during a massive collective shift where your private and personal choices matter to everyone. This realization is not about adding another pressure on you, but about sharing the pressure you thought was only on you. Let others in. Talk to others. Ask others if they need help. Ask others for help. Play with participating in a broader spectrum of experiences by being experimental and taking risks in reaching out. In short, play with being more of who you are, not less. BONUS PREVIEW: 2020 OVERLEAVES (subject to change before January) ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec)

    ENERGY REPORT January 2017 2017 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) As January brings the shift of collective Overleaves into focus, many will begin to feel the motivation of Submission rising, the background noise changing from Moving Center to Higher Emotional Center, and the Inspiration of the Priest Role. Submission is the motivation to matter, to make a difference. In the Positive Pole there is Devotion. Devotion is a love, loyalty, and enthusiasm for a person, activity, or cause. The Negative Pole is Subservience, or the blind and unquestioning obedience set by a person, activity, or cause. As January unfolds, the line between Devotion and Subservience will likely be drawn and drawn rather clearly. We suggest not to underestimate the destruction that Subservience can bring, nor the progress that Devotion can bring. The Higher Emotional Center is what helps inspire and anchor the truth and energy of Love. The Higher Emotional Center has a Positive Pole of Love and a Negative Pole of Intuition. Higher Centers do not have any classic “negative” effects, but there is the more restricted and divided pole. Where Love transcends the divisions and parts and pieces that make up a relationship, event, or life, Intuition navigates all of this. Intuition is only “negative” in that it is finding a way through the parts and Love is holding them together. As January brings a new momentum of background energy, many will be shifting away from 2016’s sense of immediate Action through Productivity or Frustration, and into a more long-term vision that works to navigate through and hold together the parts that make up the whole. However, not everyone can or will work in this Higher Center energy and will be working from the more familiar and comfortable Emotional Center. The Emotional Center holds Perception as the Positive Pole and Sentimentality as the Negative Pole. Perception is the capacity to bypass logic as a means of opening to the “heart” of an event, person, or experience, while Sentimentality is an attachment to the “heart” of an event, person, or experience as a way to bypass logic. Again, as January grows in momentum, we expect to find a definitive line between those who are attached and lacking logic, and those who are open and willing to see past the limits of their logic. Priest energy is about inspiring the masses. The Positive Pole is Compassion and the Negative Pole is Zeal. Compassion is the capacity to open one’s eyes to suffering and use inspiration to transform and heal this. Zeal is the capacity to close one’s eyes to suffering and use inspiration to distract from or compound that suffering. The Priest energy will be as definitively divided in its polarities as the other Overleaves. Most of our students are on the Positive Pole “side” of this dramatically defined line, and we will spend your year with you in helping our students understand and utilize these energies effectively and skillfully so that your Causes, Visions, and Love can be sustained and shared. For most of our students it will be fairly important to define for themselves over January at least one Cause, a clear Vision, and the willingness to Love “no matter what.” This first month can help set the collective energies in motion for greater access to the collective positive poles. We offer all of the above as information that may suit your sense of best interests, but we wish to clarify that if you choose the negative poles or do not wish to be moved by the momentum that is developing, then you are by no means obligated. You remain with power of choice and can do your best to ignore, avoid, or opt out of any collective evolution. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): January 3rd - 8th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- EMOTIONAL PARADOX - This looks to us to be a potential period where collective energy shifts across a confusing mix of emotions from dread and anxiety to enthusiasm and optimism and back and forth. If this occurs, we suggest “riding this out” and not presuming one feeling is more true than the other. See where you land around the 9th or 10th. January 19 - 23 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - another round of the slow and lengthy merging of parallels that are a coming together of all realities on the verge of “global revolution.” HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER January: BE A PART or BE APART - January looks as if it brings with it the questions of how, and how much, one wishes to be A PART of the collective changes or APART from the collective changes. If you are one of our students, you likely wish to be a part of the collective evolution, and this means making the choice to live fully, to live 100%, to tap into your passions and to continue to hold a long-term vision, to anchor love and create as many opportunities for love as you can, and passionately align with a meaningful and beneficial Cause. Let January be a period of time where you consider carefully your willingness and your strengths so that you do not overwhelm yourselves. CLOSE THE HEART or CLOSE TO THE HEART - It has been quite easy for many, including our students, to feel that the only option for protection in a time of struggle is to close the heart, to retract the energy and effort of the heart, and to focus only on “the good things.” This is a tactic that is valid and necessary when initially shocked or harmed, but the heart cannot function in this state for very long or the Physical body suffers along with the Emotional body. In January you may begin to feel you are ready to shift away from Closing the Heart, to simply letting everything return to being Close to the Heart again. When you close down the heart, you also close yourself to the flow of inspiration from things about which you care deeply. Things hurt because you care, and it is Good Work that you care. If you hurt, you must rest and heal, but you cannot sustain a closed state as a form of protection. When you are ready, bring everything close to the heart again, care again, rest and heal if you hurt again, and so on. Our point is that you can always come back. You can always bounce back. We can say this because we have watched you do it for centuries. And every time you do, the world evolves. But the choice to close the heart, or bring life close to the heart, will always be yours to make.

    This was a rough week for me. I fought with a migraine headache for about 4 days and then found myself crashing into flu-like symptoms and shivering and then nausea and, well, the nasty stuff that comes with nausea. On this 4th day, I was just trying to ride it out by sleeping and my Apple Watch started buzzing me like crazy. I was trying to ignore it, but I finally gave in and looked. The Cardio app was warning me that my resting heart rate had accelerated dangerously. I was sustaining a resting heart rate around 110 - 120, spiking at around 130. I immediately looked up what is a dangerous heart rate and it said anything above 100 is worth being concerned, but anything above 120 could be something pretty serious. I decided to go to the emergency room. My alert was around 6pm and I was at the emergency room by 8pm. I was admitted and got an EKG test and then they took blood from me and then I waited. And waited. And waited. And waited. SIX AND A HALF HOURS LATER... and only after finally pushing the issue and asking if someone could PLEASE give me an update, they told me that there was cause for concern because of my current diagnoses that I carry (AIDS, DIABETES, BORDERLINE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE) can cause the heart to work harder. This is also causing my left Ventricular of the heart to be enlarged. They wanted to keep me for 24 hours and do an echocardiogram on me, but I said no. I will schedule that through my primary doctor. I tested negative two times for some test that they said made then assess that I was 92% safe enough to leave and be fine. 7.5 hours later I was on my way home at around 3:30 AM. Cyprus and BF Bobby stayed by my side the entire time. I love them so much. They really helped keep me calm with levity and love. In those 7.5 hours, we were surrounded by what the staff called "Frequent Flyers" who were a bunch of drunk men who came nearly daily. We were surrounded by people projectile vomiting all over the place and one drunk man stood up from his bed and decided to pee all over the floor near my bed. The stench was so bad that I almost added to the vomit-fest. I had to get up and leave. It took them 2 hours to clean up the vomit and piss, and when they cleaned up the pee, they just used sheets and hospital gowns to sop it up and didn't mop or disinfect. It was disgusting. This contributed to my decision not to stay the 24 hours. I was feeling sicker and sicker just being in that environment. I had to leave. I am happy to report that my heart rate is fine so far today, according to my Apple Watch, and I am feeling good. It was a long and scary night after a long week of not feeling well. I hate reporting these kinds of things, but I think it is only fair and kind of my responsibility to keep all of you in the loop about my health since it impacts my schedule and our time with Michael. Don't worry, I am okay and will be making follow up appointments to ensure my well-being. I love you guys. If anything ever happens to me, I need everyone here to know that you made this world a better place for me and everyone else around you. Thank you for being such bright sparks of light in a world that can sometimes seem so dark. Okay, back to work for me... Troy BELOW: tired, disheveled, exhausted, anxious, scared, but rockin' the hospital gown after many hours of sitting and waiting.

    ENERGY REPORT June 2018 2018 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) JUNE draws to a close the emphasis on Power Mode and this has many of our students polarized as being in a position of resentment and regret, or being in a position of encouragement and enthusiasm. For some, the exploration of Power Mode has revealed several Oppressive obstacles to being present and in Authority over the life, while for others, the exploration of Power Mode revealed many of the key factors that could be implemented as a means to be more present and in Authority over the life. Most of our students are likely leaning in one direction over the other by now. Nearly all students are having a difficult time navigating the blurred line between one’s place “in the world” and ones place “in the life.” For many, any sense of Power in the personal life feels like a betrayal or disconnect from the reality of lack of Power among many in the world. This is a difficult scenario to balance, especially in a world where “the life” and “the world” are, literally, becoming one as the Mature Soul Age takes full effect. The personal life is no longer able to be shielded from the world, and the world can no longer be shielded from the personal life. This is quite disorienting and confusing to even the oldest of souls who have lived in the Paradigms that allowed such divisions. In addition to this, the Young and Baby Souls are seeing this, too. If you find it difficult to navigate, they find it impossible. To the younger soul, one or the other has to go. The world or the personal life must be eliminated rather than brought into balance. In most cases, the personal life is chosen and the world must simply suffer the consequences. Even most of our students have lived this way for most of this life. It is profoundly new to no longer see and feel the difference between the personal life and the world. The Young Soul paradigm erects shields between the two. Most of our students have enjoyed that shielding. It is painful, shocking, and crippling to have that shield lowered now. This is part of the current awakening. Awakening is not often magical and “ascendant” or even beautiful (at first), but disgusted, moody, and disorienting, even for the most willing. Some of our students have been awake for most of their lives, but could still benefit from the shielding that was accessible in the Young paradigm. It was an option to retreat and recover. Even this is gone. We point this out because some of our students may feel as if they should be able to handle this shift more gracefully, but it is new to everyone. Everyone. As you move through June and into July, it can be helpful to remember that the personal life and the world are now one and the same. What you do in one affects the other and what happens in the other affects you. This was always true, but it can no longer be ignored. The masses have opted to move forward into the truth of Maturity and however ugly and painful, you will continue to move forward. Owning this new equation of reality can help you to reduce the painful effects because those painful effects are magnified when you feel you should be able to shield yourself or retreat from one reality to focus on the other. This is no longer an option. One reality cannot be used to escape from the other, but one reality can be used to help the other. If you have more Power in your personal life, use it. If you have more Power in the world, use it. Know that what you do in both affects both. Shift your thinking away from the pain and exhaustion of no retreat and embrace the reality of holistic existence. Holistic existence means that you can still differentiate between the personal life and the world, but you give your focus to them as if they are the same. Heal your life, heal the world. Heal the world, heal your life. Your new Power comes from presence, not from retreat. This is new power for most, and it is powerful and empowering. It is heavy and difficult to hold, at first, but you will learn. And then the beauty of that power begins to be more than the exhaustion and pain of waking up. Look to June for your chance to put into practice a new acceptance of a new equation that adds up to being Reality. Accept that there is no retreat or shielding or division, and free yourself from the burdens and pain of trying to escape or taking on too much. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): NO NEXUS IN JUNE June 1st - 7th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- NEXUS EXPLORATION -- The potential for a Nexus is explored over these dates and it may further add to one’s disorientation and even dream activity. This exploration is a look at what can be created from this “nexus bubble” when it, eventually, branches. June 22nd - 29th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- REVELATIONS -- This shift appears to be a wide wave of realizations from among students and the population regarding what will come next. This is not ominous, but a potential anchoring of direction that allows for many to begin “working with it” rather than in a floating state of uncertainty. This is not good or bad, but a reveal and integration of truth that can be helpful for knowing what to do next, both in the personal life and the world. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JUNE: YOUR LIFE IS LIFE - Your life can no longer be seen as a separate and isolated event that has no bearing on the world, and the events of the world can no longer be navigated as events to occasionally check in on as you focus on your life. Your life IS Life. Your life is part of the ecosystem of existence that is shared among all. It was never isolated. How you feel about and deal with your personal life contributes to the bank of energy that shapes life collectively. The choices you make, the actions you take, the people and things you care about and deem worthy of their own life and of your life, matter. To everyone. However subtle and invisible the effects, all of this accumulates from every single life and adds up to what become these “energy reports.” Seeing your life as LIFE, rather than only as your life, can help you to anchor your empowerment and allow you to take care of yourself, others, and the world as equal in priority rather than as a forced choice between one or the other. Caring about one thing adds care to the world. Helping in any way adds help to the world. What you require in care and love is as important as what the world requires in care and love, and what the world suffers in pain and division, you suffer as pain and division, as well. This is not meant to be a burden. This is a new reality. It is your plugging into LIFE as a WHOLE. You are a vital blood cell in the working body of humanity and life on Earth. What you regard as LIFE in both your personal and world realities matters. You cannot control or save or solve everything, but it is okay to care about everything. Let yourself care. Do what you can. Rest when you can. Create when you can. Love when you can. Trust when you can. You are no longer just a part of your own life, but a part of LIFE. Give yourself time to adjust to this.

    THE FINE LINE BETWEEN IMMORTALITY AND FRAGILE MORTALITY I turn 50 at 7:41pm on Saturday, January 20th, 2018. I will be half-a-century old. I feel a strange mix of immortality and fragility like I have never experienced for any other decade birthday. I didn't feel much difference at 20, 30, or 40, but 50 is kind of cool. I have always loved getting older, but this is the first time I see and feel myself as being older and not just getting older. It's all fascinating and terrifying. Do I have another 50 years? Or is time now more precious than ever? Walking that fine line between immortality and fragility is an art. Thank you for walking with me as I live this life assuming I have at least another 50 years, but treating every moment as precious as a final moment. It is so weird to me that of my 50 years of life on Earth as "Troy" I have been in trance with Michael for 30 of those! And many of you have been with me for more than half or all of that time! I have a lot of big plans for the next two years for TLE and publishing, and I will post a roadmap for TLE after my birthday! Despite the drama and stress of growing pains in the world, what an amazing time to be alive and have the technology to find each other again so easily. I want to make the most of it. I love you guys. You are everything to me. Just having you in my life, and seeing how you are in each others' lives, are the best birthday present!

    THE WORLD IS FOREVER CHANGED FOR THE GOOD: An Addendum As a channel who feels with every fiber of his being a sense of responsibility for upholding high standards for clarity, consistency, and real-world applicable use of his channeling, I feel like I should add in a quick note about the amazing news from Michael that we are making a difference. In all honesty, I do not think I need to say this because all of you already know this, but just to be clear... we are far from done. FAR from done. We can celebrate that we are making a difference, but we are far from done. It ain't over til it's over. When I finally got around to reading the report, I cried. A lot. (Channeling a report is very different from reading it, by the way, and I rarely read my channeling. I'm awful about that.) Anyway, relief, inspiration, promise, and meaningfulness washed over me and helped further lift me out of probably the most depressing 6 months of my life. But I had to ask Michael, "Really?" A part of me felt this immediate cynical response to this good news and I feared it would be interpreted by a lot of us white people as... "phew, well howdy doody! ...slap ourselves on the back! We did it! We saved the Black people!!" LOL -- NO ONE here is reacting like that, so this is just backstory for why I asked Michael for further elaboration. I asked: OK...Where do we go with this? What do we do now? FROM MICHAEL: As we have said in several of our recent deliveries of reports to you -- forward is where to go, and continued action is what you do now. This is not the first turning point for this cause. The cause that is currently represented by Black Lives Matter has had previous turning points that were each in response to previous variations of oppression, such as abolition of slavery in response to slavery and integration in response to segregation. Black Lives Matter and the current turning point are in response to social and economic oppression. Though this movement was launched and fueled by the violence against Black Americans, it is all about a movement toward simply and finally being comfortable and safe while living in one's skin. Everything else is details. They are important details that cannot be ignored, and while this movement must directly address the practical and physical elements of existence, this movement is about a profound turning point in the emotional lives of those of you who are born Black. It is about the comfort of existence that is stripped from the life of nearly every Black life. It is about a movement forward into a world where every Black man, woman, child, queer, or trans enters their day with an assumption of safety and confidence, not the weight of defense, strategy, exhaustion, code switching, and perpetual readiness to fight or flight, fear of being imprisoned, discriminated against, or murdered. This turning point affects all people of color. So while you fight for the details that will improve the lives of each other, remember that this is, at the fundamental core of this turning point, a cause that will finally bring comfort to the mere act of living and existing. This is an important undertone to acknowledge in this fight and this cause. It is what is moving many to tears as they finally see the world around them declaring that it is okay and safe to exist together and that until it is 100% safe, nearly everyone will fight and stand for this cause. It is a return "home" to humanity on a level that has been all but forgotten as impossible. Every marginalized and oppressed group knows this feeling when the turning point comes, and it can become quite moving when it is a global turning point such as this. Every turning point is a leap forward, but as you can see from previous turning points, a leap takes all to a new tier that must be addressed. As racial inequality fades, and social and economic comforts rise, there will one day be a new tier to address, but with each successful turning point, the next tier comes faster and easier and with much less resistance. It may not look like it during the days in which a cause is heightened in emphasis and the fight escalates painfully, but humanity does learn and grow. We have yet to see a regression. Progress and evolution come to all, even to those who resist. It cannot be forced on a personal level, but it can be forced on a collective level when enough of you are willing. Those who straggle will catch up, but no individual or collective are ever obligated to sit and wait for everyone to wake up before moving forward. Our short answer then is to keep moving forward and continue the actions necessary. And we remind that it is not always easy, but it is never has to be complicated. ***

    Michael Speaks: THE ULTIMATE HICCUP or Truly Accepting Death 2017-10-01 Channeled by Troy Tolley in a live session at TLEGG 2017 Note from Janet: Hopefully readers of this transcript will be able to sense the general hilarity that participants experienced within this live session. Once Michael was past the introduction to the session, we were laughing most of the way through, and you'll see [laughter] repeatedly throughout the transcript. Troy kept listening in while in trance, and at times Michael had trouble getting info through his laughter. Please send thanks to @DanielaS for her transcription of this live session. MEntity: Bear with us as we come through, and hello to everybody. Surprisingly, we are not asked very often to discuss the topic of Death. Part of the reason for this is because you are specifically designed to avoid Death. You are in a physical body that wants to live, wants to survive, wants to experience the Physical Plane in its form as a representative and extension of you, as a Consciousness. And so, the topic of Death is avoided by most at all cost, even if this is unconsciously avoided. So, to bring up the topic to discuss can be difficult for some, especially those who may have had close calls with Death or experienced the Death of a loved one or has any sense of empathy or compassion for those who are in events that caused their Deaths, especially on a large scale. So, the sensitivity to Death is an important mechanism in your life, and in your body, that helps you navigate Life. Another reason you tend to avoid questions about Death and the topic of Death, with us at least, is because surprisingly, again, it is one of the least significant events in your life. That is not to say that it is not significant, but it is of the least significant. A part of you, in particular as Old Souls, knows this and is not interested in discussing the end of your life or the end of another life but you are more interested in Life itself. Each of you has died so many times that the Essence of who you are gets it. The body will never get it. Once it dies, it dies, and it does not comprehend that, and it is designed not to comprehend that. So, you will avoid the topic. You will avoid the experience if you can and if you will. This is an example of the dance between what we have described as the Sacred and the Profane. The physical dense body in which you as Essence exist through is a part of you that you must honor on a regular basis in order to continue with your days. While at the same time, having a perspective that is natural to you, especially as Old Souls, that GETS IT, that many of the things you struggle with in your life are temporary and insignificant and irrelevant to the greater arc of your existence. That dance is a very interesting and amazing friction that perpetuates a Life, the dance between the Sacred and the Profane. So, what we will do today with you is have more of a discussion with you about how you feel about Death, your questions about Death, your concerns about Death, your fears about Death, anything that you would like to discuss about this experience. But we suggest you do this while holding both the Sacred and the Profane in the same space. And by this we mean that you honor the truth, the necessity to avoid this topic while honoring the necessity for you to remember the beauty of this topic. One way to approach this is to tap into the more morbid humor that is natural to the Old Soul, and approach Death as a comical event that occurs more than it is a tragic event. Because Death is the ultimate tragedy and comedy, and there is a very fine line between the two. And you as a meeting ground between the Sacred and the Profane have the capacity to shift between these two perspectives, the tragedy side and the comedy side. It would be of interest to us to see where our students can find the comedy in the Deaths that have been experienced in the life, or the Deaths that you have experienced in the past, or the Deaths that you fear may be coming for you. So, our first question to you would be, in particular for those who have experienced the Death of someone in your life: do you or can you find the comedy in this, the levity, the relief, the peace, the paradox, the humor, in this experience? Asking you this question lets us understand where you are in your capacity to shift between perspectives. Because you will always see both of these perspectives, the tragedy and the comedy, but most of you are imprinted to emphasize the tragedy. Because in most cases it would be unnerving if you approached a funeral with a party hat and streamers and offered stand-up. It would be awkward. But that is not because it IS awkward. It is because of the climate that is imprinted within you around Death. There is levity in Death. In fact, we find it quite hilarious in many cases. Not because of the suffering that is involved, but because of our witnessing your reunions after the life is over and the realization that you have not ended. You have not in any way ended. That realization is not only beautiful to us, but hilarious. So, we ask our students here today, have you or can you describe, even if it means stretching yourself, the levity, the humor, the beauty on the other side of tragedy for a Death that you have experienced? We are looking for examples. Martha: So, a dear friend and “ex” of mine committed suicide a few years ago. There was a month delay between the time he died and when his funeral was held. And his family had a lot to deal with so I basically planned a lot of it for them, and they wanted me to speak. And, so, I spent about a week writing. It was going to be a sad eulogy, right, I was writing all the little stories and vignettes, and I was practicing to try to get the right tone. And when it actually came to be the day of the funeral I stood up there and took a completely different tone and picked things and I did stand up, sort of. I told funny stories about him. Like, how he never cleaned his oven. You know, because I cleaned his house before we sold it for him and the oven was pristine. And so, I did stand-up. His brother, who had been sitting next to me before I got to speak after the funeral, said, I just thought that was going to be so rough but when you got up there and started speaking I knew it was all going to be OK. MEntity: That is the kind of beauty that is attached to the yin and yang of Death, so to speak. It is the other side of tragedy, and that is a good example. Ann: I got a few. I got a lot of dead people. I know this sounds terrible. My brother died of pancreatic cancer this last December. Here is somebody, this is going to sound so awful, but here's somebody who did so much for the environment, committed himself to this clean life. And he dies of this fucking pancreatic cancer. I know that sounds mean, but it's like, Oh my god. The irony still amazes me that he took such good care of himself and was such a steward of the planet and he gets laid low by this rampant, nasty disease. And I don't know how he feels about it, but there's a part of me, like, Oh my god, the irony still kills me. You know, it's just.... And also, the way my mother, my mother went out her way. She did it her way. And it was so much a part of who she was. It was sort of a really interesting honor to watch her in Discrimination slowly make her decision to work her way out of here, you know, through her choices. BobbyA: I'm thinking specifically about a man by the name of Jason that I asked you about. He experienced a disruption at a club one night, and he and his female partner went home. And I think the police were called, and in an effort to avoid the police, there was a warrant out for his arrest, he went and sat out by the train tracks. And he was drunk. And instead of getting hit by the law, he got hit by the train. MEntity: That is hilarious. [Laughter] Brian: I'll add one. Geraldine is a great example. She knew that it was coming. We went to Seattle. For most of us to meet her for the first time. But at the same time, when we were doing the planning, one of the jokes was like, hey, let's have a pre-mortem eulogy. And so, it was basically making fun of all the nonsense. And I remember some channeling that Maureen and Bobby had done later on to find out, OK, what kind of happened on the other side. And apparently, she was very pissed that her first sighting of Essence was of her sitting in the wheelchair from Seattle. And she's like, what, that's it? And so, yeah, to me it was very beautiful to be able to see that. Obviously as Old Souls we kind of know, yes, it goes on, but to truly see that in action, and be able to see someone embracing Death, not just accepting it but even embracing it and having fun with it. And then even on the other side, that's it, I'm disappointed! I thought there was going to be more! So, that was a really good example for me. Janet: After my parents' deaths, we didn't have funerals, we had memorial services. They were full of pictures and stories, especially the funny stories that we had on my parents. But I wanted to bring up that those Deaths we knew were coming with some advance notice. They were in a state of health and it was the time. We had some way to make some preparation. In Martha's case, that was totally unexpected. And so, I think there is a difference in how you might approach it and how you might be able to handle it based on whether you have advance warning or not. MEntity: Yes, the tragic will be involved. Regardless of the humor you can find in it. But it is important, the reason why we are discussing it from this angle is because it's important, as you come across those who will die or you approach your own Death, whether suddenly or known, you must remember to access the comedy, the humor, because this is how you allow the individual to continue on without an attachment or an anchor to the life that has been ended, so to speak. The more one grieves, which is a natural process, but the more one grieves in a way that resists the humor, or the levity, or the understanding, the more you have anchored an individual to the life in a way that does have an effect on their Review. And we have discussed this in our delineation of the 7th Internal Monad, which we will not do here, as we have covered that in detail. But the levity is not just for you to feel better about the Death, but about freeing up the energy that is another Essence and its Personality to continue forward. It does have an impact on the Review. Are there other examples? Tex: This is sort of an example and a question. My dad, who was age 96 when he died two years ago, had had multiple strokes at that time. I'd been in the hospital with him. And he's kind of an easy-going guy, never worries about anything. And I think that's why he didn't die until age 96. He would wake up from a stroke or whatever and just look around like it was totally amusing. Finally, he has a heart attack. He's out for several days, and he finally comes to and he looks around the room and goes, I'm not dead yet! [Laughter] And then two years later, bang, he dies. [Laughter] I can just see him on the other side going, I'm not dead yet! [Laughter] So the question is, did he actually do that on the other side when he died? I'm not dead yet! MEntity: We do not know. [Laughter] We would have to look. We wish to differentiate between your bringing levity to the experience of Death and the attention that is necessary for processing the suffering of an individual that may lead to a Death, whether this be through sickness or mental illness or the overwhelming circumstances of a life that drives an individual to reduce choices to the point of leaving the life, exiting the life. So, we are in no way implying or saying that one must diminish the appropriate response to the suffering of an individual. But the Death itself and the experience of this can be, at some point when you are ready, brought to a state of wholeness by finding the comedy to go along with the tragedy. And knowing this is part of the process of understanding and bringing peace to your experience of Death, a peace that is often missed or not pointed out in most instructions for how to grieve. Eventually you must find the humor. Do you have questions before we continue? Daniela: I get it. I imagine that when I die I'll have a smile on my face. It will be funny. But my children. I just can't see humor [Laughs] in a child's Death. It just seems, like, different. MEntity: That is because it is not funny, at this point, and it is not something that you need to [Troy laughs] ponder as a hilarious event to occur. [Laughter] The point is if that were to happen, then it is important to find the humor in this. You do not practice that understanding on anticipating the Deaths of those who are close to you. You practice this on those experiences that have already occurred. And that is important to understand so that you are not whimsically laughing at the possibility of a loved one's Death. But if a loved one has died, there will be a point where the humor may be necessary, and will likely be necessary, to bring to the equation. You can practice on yourself, as you say, as you gave as an example, and that if fair game. But you do not have to practice on your children. [Laughter] Daniela: But what's the humor in a child's Death? To me it just seems different than an adult's. MEntity: That would be something that individually you must find. It is not that the Death is humorous in itself. But that you will find the humor that is included in the reality of that Death, and much like Martha gave as an example, it is finding those memories that bring back the humor to the equation, not necessarily in extracting it from the Death itself. Do you understand? Daniela: Yes. MEntity: Those memories that elicit laughter and humor are vital to your peace around the Death of a loved one. One of the reasons for this is because, as you mature emotionally, you move away from Sentimentality, which is an attachment to a rigid way of remembering things or wanting things not to change, and move toward Nostalgia. This is an emotionally intelligent way of looking back at the past. Nostalgia extracts from all of the spectrum of experiences those things that bring the greatest movement forward, that add to your life in ways that are joyful and humorous. So, that is one of the reasons why looking for humor and levity and memories of laughter is a way of moving into a more emotionally intelligent way of moving forward with the past, instead of staying rooted in the past with Sentimentality. Cyprus: I have a question. Is Death kind of an overall statement? I mean, even not just talking about Death. But I love nostalgia and remembering the stuff that we've done in the past. Even things that were crazy and seemed horrible at the time, we now laugh at and joke about and enjoy in a different light. MEntity: Yes. This can be used in a broad way for the life. And it is one of the ways that you grow. Many of the things that you are doing in this life that bring suffering are things you will look back on and laugh about in the future, because you already do that now in your questions about past lives. What you [Troy laughs] have not quite grasped, and we understand why, is that you are already dead. [Laughter] Your future lives are asking about you, and the irony is that [Troy laughs] nothing dies. [Laughter] So, while you are already dead and not yet dead and will never die, the concept of Death must be addressed. In terms of the Personality, or rather the physical body, Death is quite profound. But in terms of the Essence and Personality, it is simply transformation, it is simply evolution. It is not an end. It is not Death in the way that most tend to treat it. There is a persistence and continuation that each of you know is true. You do not have to trust us in telling you this. There is a part of you that knows this. But your body is not designed to remember this. It is not designed to know this. So, you will always have that struggle within you. Nostalgia can help you to understand that if you can do this for your life and for those who have died in your life, it helps you to understand the beauty of your life in retrospect after Death. And we ask you now, if you were to die today, can you find the Beauty and the Nostalgia, would you leave this life today knowing this was a life lived as best you could, and by “best you could” we mean by your standards, with your skills, at your pace, and not measured against some ambition or deadline set by a false premise. Various responses: No. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. MEntity: We promise there will not be Kool-Aid. [Laughter] If you would like to, we can offer up the floor to get questions or to respond to questions about your individual Deaths, some of which you may find quite hilarious. If you— [Laughter] Cyprus: The room goes crazy. Martha: Everybody wants that, Michael. MEntity: We will start with five. We will leave it up to those who are moderating to manage this. Cyprus: We'll just take a nice smattering, OK? We'll start with Cong. Cong: Can Michael just give me an example of my funniest Death in the past? MEntity: For each of these responses we may require a moment to find. [After a moment of silence, Troy starts to laugh.] [Laughter] The [Troy laughs]—this is Troy laughing, not us—the lifetime that came up for us is a lifetime in which you were, we think, in the late 1700's. We may not provide all of the details so that we can get to more people, but you were very eager to get married and your dress got, in the frantic effort to get to a location in time to get married, because you thought you would die if you did not, because it was quite important to you and exciting, your dress got hooked into the wheel of the vehicle and you were pulled [Troy laughs] under [Laughter] and broke your neck [Laughter] and did not make it to the wedding. [Laughter] Cong: Just out of curiosity, did you know who I was supposed to marry? And did they find this funny? MEntity: At the time, no. [Laughter] The Mate Agreement at the time is not here, in this room. Cyprus: Martha. You haven't been here in a long time. You deserve to go. Martha: So, you did tell me about the funny Death of Geraldine and I where we were soldiers that laughed and got caught because we were laughing and got killed. So, that one I know already. MEntity: That was quite a good one. [Laughter] We've [Troy laughs] found one in what looks like the late 1500's where you thought you could get by with defecating under a stage by slipping through a trap door, [Laughter] not knowing [Troy laughs]—we are having trouble keeping Troy from listening—the place burned down. [Laughter] We suggest that each of you who receive these notes make a note so that we can elaborate upon these and put them properly in the sequence of lives that you may be exploring in more formal settings. Martha: Did I cause the fire? MEntity: No. Next. Cyprus: Ann. MEntity: We will look. We are looking. This may not be as funny as the others, but we find it funny. The lifetime where you were running a type of apothecary store and thought you could make some good money switching out a remedy for a poison because someone was going to pay you well. And fell ill, feeling guilty, not realizing that you had given them a remedy and took the poison [Laughter] to feel better and killed yourself. [Laughter] Cyprus: Kerrin. MEntity: [Troy laughs] We think this will count. [Laughter] We are losing the capacity to relay details. But we can share the gist. It appears you had puffed up yourself in such a way as to take on the challenge of jousting knowing that you had never done it before. [Laughter] And in your attempts, you beheaded the one you were challenging, but were so freaked out by the impaling that you catapulted yourself off your horse and into some sort of impact that caused you to die. [Laughter] Everyone was quite confused. [Laughter] Kerrin: Was there anyone here whose head I cut off? MEntity: No. Cyprus: Tex. Tex: OK, I invented so many things in this life that nearly killed me, from motorcycles to jumping off a roof with umbrellas, you name it. I have got to make an invention out there that killed me. MEntity: A few. [Laughter] One example that you thought would be helpful for a rough terrain were stilts with springs. [Laughter] That did not go well. [Laughter] Cyprus: Are you OK to do more? MEntity: We can take two more. Cyprus: Brian. MEntity: We are looking. This would have been in what might be described as the “Wild West” of America, and you had decided to take some journey by horse on your own, and someone convinced you to dress in the garb of the Native Americans as a form of disguise, which did not work. [Laughter] You were immediately seen as an offense and murdered. And what was funny was your yelling, “But my headdress.” [Laughter] We know we cannot prove this, but we are not making these up. [Laughter] We will take one more. Cyprus: We haven't had an Artisan. We'll do Janet. I’m trying to get the other Roles. See if they are more entertaining. MEntity: They are all entertaining. [Laughter] The one that comes up right now for us to most easily convey is an expedition of some sort, that took a lot of convincing to pull off for a group to trust in your navigational skills and knowledge to lead to what we can only describe as some sort of Mayan vault that required a large stone to roll out of the way. After so much journey to get there and in your excitement, the door rolled back [Laughter], and you did not survive that. [Laughter] Cyprus: At least she got them there! MEntity: That is exactly what you said. [Laughter] Janet: I said, “I got you there?” MEntity: That is on record. [Laughter] These are examples of how you will look at this life. You will look back and find the humor, even in your greatest struggles, because all of you will remain together. All of you will remain reuniting, one after another in your lifetimes, and finding each other again. It does not end. We have not seen an end. And we have all reunited as an Entity and laugh at our [Troy laughs] past on a regular basis, though we do not have the bodies to do so such as Troy is experiencing now. But there is still laughter in the Causal Plane. As the Old Soul learns rather quickly, some of the most amazing and beautiful and touching moments are in the most tragic. And this is something that you can keep in mind, even if it is an undercurrent in your struggles, is that you will find the beauty in that. You do not have to find it in the moment. Because you must figure out whatever it is that you must figure out. But you can find it in those moments. You can find it in your struggle. You can find it in the suffering. There will be a moment when you understand it differently. And that is all that matters in terms of getting peace around difficult experiences is understanding it differently. It does not mean that you will understand it completely, but you will understand it differently. And it is often more meaningful, useful, touching, than you might have guessed while in it. And that is what we will leave you with in terms of your understanding Death, approaching Death, and looking back at it. Cyprus: Before you go, could you just tell us one of your funniest ones? MEntity: One of our own? Cyprus: Yes. MEntity: We have a few to choose from. [Laughter] One of our favorites was when a large part of our Entity were incarnated together as a crew on a ship. And we thought it would be a good idea to have some ladies join us [Laughter] and we all died from syphilis. [Laughter] But we had a good time. [Laughter] Cyprus: Thank you. MEntity: Good day to each of you and good-bye.
  36. 46 points
    MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We are speaking to you today under the general request for our perspective on "the state of the planet." This is a pivotal year for humanity. There are pivotal years for individuals, for relationships, for families, for communities, for nations, for continents, and humanity. For a year to be pivotal for humanity, it means that every level of pivoting is happening on a large scale. In other words, it is not just people here and there, or families here and there, or communities here and there, or a country or two, but many individuals, many relationships, most families, most communities, most nations, and most continents. We remind you that a "pivotal year" is a result of a pattern or patterns that have escalated in the need for necessary and vital change to disrupt those patterns so that one either makes a breakthrough or has a breakdown. We cannot say if this pivotal year for humanity will bring a breakthrough or a breakdown because that is yet to be seen. One of the greatest causes for this pivotal year to lead to a breakdown for humanity comes from the combination of INFORMATION GLUT and ANTI-TRUTH. First, if one is participating in modern society, one is taking in too much information, period. You are bombarded with news, opinions, perspectives, advertising, choices, decisions, threats, pressures, etc. that demand of you absorb and process all of it effectively. When one is in an Information Glut, it becomes noise. It no longer serves you in terms of making decisions or choices and tends to leave one paralyzed and waiting for something to distract, disrupt or change. When information turns into noise, the Truth then becomes vulnerable. When the Truth becomes vulnerable, then it can be targeted and dismantled. It is a bit of a misnomer to say that "truth becomes vulnerable and targeted and dismantled." It would be more accurate to say that one's capacity for discernment is compromised and that makes one vulnerable to manipulation. There is a difference between not knowing the truth, and not wanting to know the truth, or rejecting the truth, and ignoring the truth. There are more people than ever who are now rejecting or ignoring the truth. To help in this pivotal period for humanity, it will be helpful for our students to consider: WHERE AM I IGNORING OR REJECTING THE TRUTH? And DO I NEED A BREAK TO CATCH UP WITH MYSELF? We can suggest that while information can be compelling and important, trust yourself if you know you are taking in too much. By giving yourself permission to step away, step back, to give yourself time to process, you strengthen your capacity to invite, discern, and sustain the truth. These two factors: Information Glut and Anti-Truth are far more of a threat to humanity than even the environmental concerns, wars, disease, famine, etc. because the rejection of truth and the fatigue from noise reduces every possibility for recovery or solution for all other threats. We cannot stress this enough: Truth, Love, and Energy are building blocks of your universe, both in literal terms and in terms of one's experience of existence. If one of these is rejected or denied or ignored, collapse is imminent. Ironically, Love nor Energy are under assault or in danger of being rejected. But Truth is in danger. Truth will exist with or without humanity, so when we say that Truth is in danger, we mean that humanity's trust and receptivity to the truth are in danger. In this pivotal year for humanity, the Infinite Soul candidates are all aligned by now and if there are Manifestations, the emphasis will likely be themed in Truth. Infinite Soul Manifestation probabilities are now at 88%. Humanity could resolve environmental threats and threats of war, oppression, division, economic collapse, etc, but if Truth is lost, so is the capacity to resolve these threats. We can delineate various areas of concern for humanity at this time, but this is the primary and key concern for those students who want to understand and help in contributing toward the shift toward breakthrough. If our students wish to help contribute toward patterns of breakthrough, we suggest the following: 1 - Remember that the Truth is simple. Truth is never complicated. It can be complex, but not complicated. 2 - Face your own Truths. Truth exists on a Personal, Community/Global, and Universal Level. If you tend to avoid your own Truths, it makes it easier to avoid shared and universal Truths. In other words, be honest with yourself about yourself. This means you must stop lying to yourself about even the most superficial of things, such as your degree of beauty, worth, and acceptability. These are qualities of a person that never have a single or conclusive truth. If you have decided you are ugly, you are ignoring the truth that many do not agree. If you have decided you are unlovable, you are ignoring the truth that many would not agree. And so on. But we also speak about the lies you may tell yourself in other ways, as well. 3 - Take a break from curated reality. Reality is a collection of truths that shape your perception. When your reality is no longer in your own hands, but in the hands of sources that curate what you read and see, you exist in a curated reality. Curated reality may or may not be truthful, but direct experience cannot be beaten. The State of the Planet this year is one that could be described as PRECARIOUS, but these turning points are simply growing pains. We survived many. We will open the queue now for 3 questions to start: ***QUEUE IS NOW OPEN*** Maureen: At this time, what do you see as the probability for each of the top 5 Democratic candidates, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mike Bloomberg, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, one of which will be running for president against Trump, that they could/would beat Trump if they were to be the nominee? MEntity: It is the same probabilities for all: This currently stands at 58%. The reason it is the same probability for each is that it is not the candidate that determines this election, but the voters. It may be anticipated that one candidate over another may result in fewer voters or losing voters, but those who are voting for the corrupt King are voting for the corrupt King, regardless of any claim or assumption that they are weighing options. Maureen: Thank you!! NEXT Luciana: like you to comment on the political situation in Brazil. I see that people here usually idolize politicians and then the person's favorite politician becomes someone who can't be criticized. And if you criticize this politician the person who is a kind of fan of this politician thinks that you are against Brazil. And there are people who, I admit that I'm in this group, have lost faith in politics and think that it makes no difference who they vote for. Luciana: because it doesn't matter who the politicians are there for their own interest and nobody is interested in improving the country. Luciana: so I'd like you to comment a little bit on this scenario that I see in Brazil. MEntity: In the best and strongest of democracies, the cult of personality can wear away and diminish that democracy. Cult of personality requires that the truth be disregarded and when the truth is disregarded, everything becomes dependent upon that personality. Effectiveness may be diminished when there are cults of personality and corruption involved, but there are many ways in which one makes a difference. It will always serve you well to consider that there are ways to make a difference, even as you may be worried that no one cares or that you cannot make a difference. In other words, it does matter who the politician is. NEXT Royce: I am incredibly susceptible to infoglut and influence from others. This has added to confusing relationship patterns where I just add to the noise rather than have a fixed perspective, having a fixed perspective on what the truth is also feels so incredibly unnatural to me but I recognize many others don't seem to have that issue and it is obvious what the " right" perspective is. I want to join humanity and cut through the chaos of perspectives. You say that the truth is simple and that it does not harm but how could you help someone like me ( I assume there are others) who sees that simplicity in multitudes of perspective? What can a chaotic/confused mind do to trust one truth/path to focus on over another, even when other perspectives have their slivers of truth too? I want to be on the " right" side of the future but god I find it hard to trust one truth over another when there is so much we don't KNOW yet. The only answer that comes to me is " Play and choose anyway" when it comes to infoglut MEntity: From what we can see in your words, you are not speaking about the truth. You are speaking of something else. What is an example that confuses you so that we can more directly address this question? Royce: ok, let's say veganism. I have been vegan for 6 years now and it has always seemed simple and obvious to me but over the last couple years it has become less simple and obvious and I still choose it but I also am just adding to the confused noise when I speak on it. there are SO MANY truths around a subject like this Royce: and many leave because of that infoglut Royce: so how can you really trust in the midst of the noise? Royce: so that my voice is not messy but maybe useful again MEntity: We think we understand and will respond. Royce: thanks angel, I understand my question was a bit infoglutty itself MEntity: Veganism is when one actively chooses to reduce harm to others as much as possible, in particular, those animals who are subject to unnecessary and extreme cruelty and suffering. Veganism is another word for Compassion. Compassion is the choice to care for and reduce the suffering of others. The truth is that when one has a choice, one CAN refuse to participate in the cruelty and suffering of others. If one does not have a choice, one may or may not be able to refuse in that participation. But it will remain true that when one has a choice, one CAN. The rest of the noise is distraction. The path to how one reduces that harm is one that may vary among individuals, but this will still have no bearing on that simple Truth that if one has a choice, one CAN refuse to participate in or contribute to the cruelty and suffering. Royce: yeah , the spiritual takes and other teachings dealing with abstract " body needs" throw me for a loop the most but when i return to simplicity it usually is " because I have a choice" MEntity: As we said, the rest is noise. There are no justifications when one has a choice. Royce: thanks angels MEntity: This is an example of a simple truth. Keep in mind that when one has a choice, there will still need to be a path and those paths may vary in pace and possibility for how one can actively choose compassion. Choices build upon choices. There are no Sentient Species in existence who have to cause cruelty and suffering to exist. They may cause cruelty and suffering, but they do not have to. They have a choice. And every Sentient Species creates their path toward Compassion. This is called Soul Age. NEXT Brian: What would a breakdown vs breakthrough look like over the next five years? MEntity: We do not know. Bobby: lol Brian: LOL MEntity: Breakdowns on this scale tend to lead to a kind of reset of some form on a large scale. Breakthroughs on this scale tend to lead to leaps forward in ways that bring all of humanity closer. We can say that all of you will survive this either way, but we only know you in your futures that came from a breakthrough. We will conclude here for today. We have much more to say about this pivotal year and we will continue our discussion with you in further exchanges. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    ENERGY REPORT July 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY brings with it the move of focus to the Attitude of the year, which is REALIST. The shift of focus away from Observation Mode and onto Realist Attitude may come as fairly jarring for some of our students. The shift may be of such surprise that students find their dreams amplified in bizarre and even disturbing ways, or find their bodies suddenly processing a burst of old raw pain and grief that has unknown origins or meaning, or find that there is a sudden snap into sharp focus the reality of the demands of existence while also struggling against an almost hypnotic and sedating drone of reality that is just too much to keep taking in at once. In any case, most students will note this shift because the shift dives from the more distanced experience of Observation Mode and straight into the Negative Pole of Realist: SUBJECTIVITY. The Attitude of Realist is all about the perspective of WHAT IS. There is no interpretation, no speculation, no extrapolation, no embellishment or projection. It is all about seeing what IS, even if one would rather not. Most of our students are fairly clear and aware of reality as it exists independently from interpretation, but it is still difficult not to color reality with one’s own method of making sense of it. In many cases our students make sense of reality by distancing themselves from the areas of reality that are less interesting or more intimidating. July may change that. With the dive directly into Subjectivity, it means that you approach WHAT IS from the negative poles of the intellect and emotions. This means that your attachments (sentimentality) and your reasoning are triggered in defense. There is a blurring of reality between what is, what is not, and where you are in that mix. You simply react with reasoning for protecting that to which you are attached. Reasoning, the negative pole of the intellect, is a process of justifying and explaining one’s interpretation of experiences and events. Sentimentality (attachment), the negative pole of emotion, is a process of hanging on to and protecting only the symbols (not the reality) of what is important to you. SUBJECTIVITY, then, is all about being too close to What Is and trying to make sense of what is and your feelings about what is. This is where opinions come in and personal feelings and preferences and tastes, but not reality as it exists on its own. Subjectivity is a Negative Pole because it means that one is “too close” to What Is and has lost perspective between what IS, what IS NOT, and where you are in that mix. While the Realist will always see what is, Subjectivity makes it difficult for the Realist to see all of what is. July may be fairly draining and exhausting as you climb up and out of Subjectivity to Objectivity. Feelings can be overwhelming while in Subjectivity because they are only about how one feels about what is, not about what one can do about changing what is. It is all about reasoning and explaining What Is without fully understanding What Is. What we can suggest for our students over July is to keep a journal or record or mental note of your reactions to personal and world events that feel too close to you or so close that it is difficult to know how to respond or what to do. Note what “triggers” you and explore any patterns you see in your notes. When you can become aware of what keeps you from effectively dealing with What Is, you can more easily move into Objectivity, the Positive Pole of Realist. We will speak more on Objectivity in the weeks ahead. Depending on how our students experienced their exploration of Flow and Observation in the earlier part of the year, we may find that Objectivity comes sooner than later. This would mean a more rational and streamlined approach to What Is. When in the Positive Pole, the Intellect helps sort reality into what is, what is not, and where you are in the midst of that. The Negative Pole blurs these together in mix of feelings and confusion. When in the Positive Pole, the Emotions inspire and bring clarity of perception to help sort what is, what is not, and where you in the middle of that. In general, we can say to “ride out” July and “hang in there” until August when there is more distance between you and what is and what is not. NOTE: there will be some students who have moved almost directly into Objectivity and these students would likely have a minor struggle at the end of June or beginning of July and then a burst of motivation, enthusiasm, and focus for changing something important to them in their personal life. If you recognize this, you are already in Objectivity. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): July 1st - 5th -- Energy Shift -- MORE AGITATION - July may start off as June did but with even more of an agitating wave of energy that marks this shift of focus away from Observation/Passion Mode into Realist Attitude. Depending on one’s resistance to or lack of expression and inspiration, the agitation may be so intense that it exhausts the body and drops you yet again into a bizarre fatigue, or restless sleep or hyperactive dreams. Others may simply feel annoyed, while others may feel a sense of motivation and curiosity about renewed efforts for solutions or directions. JULY - NO NEXUS HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: PATIENCE IS A NOT A VIRTUE, IT IS A NECESSITY - Continuing with the theme of June, there is a pattern of “waiting” again in July; a sense of going about your business as events unfold behind the scenes as you patiently await. This may bring up anxiety or distraction, but patience is a necessity. Patience is not about remaining civil and dignified in the face of delayed satisfaction, it is about holding your space and your focus as a form of satisfaction. In other words, enjoy yourself as best you can while you deal with the reality of what is.

    ENERGY REPORT May 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY arrives almost unexpectedly and with some surprise as the months of 2019 begin to “blur” together with little to nothing differentiating them. This is part of the effect of Flow in the Negative Pole. Until there is a “slide” into meaningful Acceptance or Discrimination on a collective level, this will continue to be the case and the sense of inevitability and point of no return will escalate. As the Mode of Observation continues to be emphasized, it may seem to many of our students that there is only a Negative Pole position of Surveillance in relation to events in the world. This is a position that feels as if one must simply watch from a distance the unfolding of events and have little to no effect on them. Because of the lack of collective Positive Pole navigation of the first few months of this year, many of our students may find that they turn their attention back to the details of their personal lives and focus on what can be done there. Many of our students are Observing their lives from the Positive Pole of Clarity and improving the Flow of their lives from the Positive Pole of Freedom as they increase Productivity (Moving Center) and Creativity (Artisan). Ironically, this is precisely what is needed for many to do as a way to contribute to a collective return of navigation through the Positive Poles. We think that most of our students are in a process of deep and personal reflection regarding their more immediate necessities and care and this is helping free up energy and power that can then be directed toward grander visions and projects. May has a strong energy of support for self-care, self-reflection, clarity, and calm recollection of yourself. Some of you may have felt a surge of intensity as if “hitting a wall” with your patience and flexibility. This is not a bad sign. For those who experienced this over the end of April and beginning of May, it is an experience that is reminding you of your limits and/or an unlocking of permission for your power. Many are in a state of inner conflict over how to navigate challenges in life and in the world that force them to behave in ways that are unnatural to them, such as “getting angry,” “drawing a line,” clarifying boundaries and redefining themselves in terms of ethical and compassionate choices and actions. We think that most of our students will have “that moment” over the next 30 to 90 days if they have not experienced it, yet. As you navigate May, enjoy your moments of calm and embrace your moments of power. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): May 4th -- Energy Shift -- GROUNDING - A shift toward calm, patience, and persistence that may prompt students to step back, pause, reconnect, realign, and focus on something that brings and shares joy. This shift may carry in effect for the rest of May. May 18th - 21st -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - A merging of parallels that are focused on emotional closure, emotional peace, True Grounding, and being “done” with unnecessary struggles and challenges, all while reclaiming a certain amount of collective power and pleasure through revitalizing social connections and directions. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MAY: TOGETHER, WE STAND; TOGETHER, WE SIT - Collective forces are not always about moving forward, but about taking a moment to authentically look at each other instead of looking ahead. Our students may feel a desire to reach out, reach back, and truly acknowledge those in the life who are of meaningful and vital love, friendship, and kindness. Allow yourselves to sit down together and look at each other even as you know you must return to standing up and looking forward together.

    ENERGY REPORT January 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) As JANUARY opens up a new year, the energies of the Artisan, Moving Center, and Flow are activated and emphasized. This is a fairly jarring shift from the baseline energies of the previous year. Many of our students may have found themselves thrown into, or sliding into a chaotic state that is a mix of the new Negative Poles, Delusion (Artisan), Frustration (Moving Center), and Inertia (Flow). This might show up as a burst of feelings stirred up in the body that have no place to go but in circles and generating a range of unfounded or outdated and previously-resolved experiences for processing over and over. For those who had the most difficult time adjusting to the shift in energies for the new year, it will be helpful to understand that most of what you are feeling may be the equivalent of a calm lake bed being stirred up by a storm. The murky waters are not permanent nor do they represent any issues that have returned to stay. It will be difficult to see clearly and it may be disorienting, but it will pass. When it passes, it will likely be as startling as it was when it washed over you because you will wonder why it felt so overwhelming and felt so “real.” For those who more easily adjusted to the shift in energies, you may still have found yourself challenged by the shift affecting some particular area that may have been thought to have been resolved to a greater degree than it looks at the start of the year. In both cases, it is important to understand that even when one has made great progress and evolution through issues, challenges, and patterns, they do not simply go away once they are resolved. They do disintegrate, dissolve, transform, etc, but they rest in the “sediment,” so to speak, of the lake bed of your greater body. Those challenges, issues, and patterns will always be a part of you and they may or may not be “stirred up” in any future wave of energy, but this does not mean they have returned or that you did not resolve them. Energy transforms and evolves, but it does not “go away.” This is true of the “worst” of who you are and for the best of who you are. You do not go away. You transform and evolve and grow, but you do not go away, and neither do all of the parts and patterns of who you are and have been. If you ever find yourself immersed in a return to old patterns and challenges, use your experience, wisdom, and understanding as best you can, and move through until the energies settle again. From what we can see, this immersion in Delusion, Frustration, and Inertia will likely be short-lived for our students who started off the year in this chaotic state, but this may escalate on a larger scale in the world. This is not a prediction, but a comment on the likelihood that the Negative Poles will be emphasized for the first 3 to 6 months and may or may not move to the Positive Poles at some point. From what we can see in terms of these energies on a larger scale, we think there will be a great deal of over-anticipation, misreading of possibilities, high expectations met with great disappointments, and a great deal of frustration as patterns continue to repeat so that “nothing” seems to be changing or getting better. This will not be true in the long-term, but it may seem to be true while these energies are swirling and murky and unclear. Regardless of how you have experienced the start of the year, and regardless of how the world may reflect these energies, it will be helpful for you to focus on the healthiest use of your imagination as possible, the healthiest use of your energy and actions as possible, and to foster as healthy a motivation and intention as possible. This will help you to move toward the Positive Poles of Creativity, Productivity, and Freedom. We will elaborate upon these energies over the year, of course, but for now, it is enough to know that if you feel like your focus and energy have been lost, it will return and you are not as lost as you may have thought you were. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): January 11th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- ENDINGS - This looks to be a shift that brings about the “beginning of the end” for many patterns that will not survive 2019. This may be in your personal life, but it will also be in terms of world events, as well. December 31st - January 3rd -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE -- This looks to be a convergence drawing together more parallels aimed for collective recovery and healing. A Healing Nexus, if you will. [NO OTHER NEXUS] HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JANUARY: THIS IS IT - On a personal and global scale, it could be said that 2019 is a pivotal year for everyone on the planet. It is a Moving Centered year of great changes, endings, and beginnings. Grief will likely be a great part of the energy in this year, as well as relief. Allow room for both of these states because you may find yourself moving between them on a regular basis. On a personal scale, it will be helpful to determine that this is the year you will do what you have been meaning to do, and actually, do it. Own your strength and motivation and use your imagination and action and intentions to truly follow through with what you know will improve, calm, and fulfill you, even if this may seem to be a very minor thing. On a larger scale, consider your part in the collective patterns and follow through with any changes or practices you know will help “the world.” Be a part of the world and not apart from it. Own your place in the collective creation of freedom for your fellow beings on your planet. This is it. We are not being dramatic when we say that “the world,” and even your personal world, are in a pivotal state during 2019 and the greater your participation, the greater your contribution to the more fulfilling direction.

    ENERGY REPORT DECEMBER 2017 2017 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) DECEMBER shifts into a full emphasis on Fixation, a primary fuel for Greed. For many of our students, this “season” of Chief Features has been more of a process of realization and revelation as you consider what you truly lack vs what you fear you lack. Many of our students have taken this insight to heart and have addressed their fears, or at the very least are now aware of what is valid and what is not. For the greater collective consciousness, there is an ever-widening divide between those who are digging into their Fixation and doubling down on their fear and those who are inviting revelation and insight. This is setting up a long arc of exploration that will continue through 2018. There is likely to be a clear, definitive, and deep divide between those who are struggling with what they legitimately do not have vs those who fear they do not have, but have plenty. This dynamic is not new to modern society, but there are periods of time when this divide deepens and defines a society and prompts great launches of revolution. In most years there is a shift of emphasis each year that moves in and out of Chief Features and the depth of investment in those fears. When a Chief Feature carries over for 2 or more years, it starts to become a defining force in history. This is true of any Overleaf. If there is a trend in the Chief Feature that lasts 2 or more years, it tends to defined by issues related to revolutions. If a Goal is emphasized for 2 or more years, it tends to be a period defined by issues of progress and/or prosperity. If a Mode is emphasized for 2 or more years, it tends to be a period defined by the challenges and rewards of common ground and problem-solving. If an Attitude is emphasized for 2 or more years, it tends to define a period where society is marked by striking revelations and awakening. If the Role is carried over for 2 or more years, it tends to mark a shift in positions of leadership and what defines value in a society. If the Centering carries over for 2 or more years, it tends to mark a period of time defined by geological and weather dynamics. For most of our students, December may come and go as similar to the other months of this past year because there is very little in effect to alter the current momentum. The end of a year often marks a period of reflection and renewal, but when Overleaves carry over from one year to another, it can feel more like a smooth and exciting period of comfort and security in that which has been found to be beneficial and loving, or a period of fortification and bracing for more of what has been found to be challenging and painful. We see more of the latter is the case for the planet at this time. 2018 PREVIEW OVERLEAVES [subject to change] ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): Dec 18th - Dec 22nd -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - This may mark one of the more unusual merging of parallels that are a mix of “failed” and “successful” realities sharing in common extremes of climate and power struggles. The bonding commonality drawing toward this Convergence comes from having the same conditions across these realities, but with great differences in the capacity for resolving daunting scenarios. It could be said that a wave of “refugee” parallels that have moved too far into hopelessness are integrating into “this” reality. This merging brings a great wave of strength and vision for the “refugee” parallels, but also brings with it sobering vision and awareness on a larger scale for many who have been ignoring reality. This Convergence is not orchestrated by higher forces, but comes as a result of deep common ground between one wave of realities needing help, and one wave of realities not facing reality. Dec 22nd -- ENERGY SHIFT -- FORTITUDE -- A wave of energy shifting as more people nurture a willingness to take on challenges and values that extend beyond their convenience and comfort zones. It may mark the shift into the Warrior energy of 2018. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER DECEMBER: THERE IS NO END IN SIGHT - There is only the next day. There will always be the next day. And when you do not measure time and experience in terms of days, there will still be the evolution in some way. The challenges of a life are not all there is to life. The joys of life are not all there is to life. The struggle for existence is not all there is to existing. The bliss of existence is not an ultimate endpoint of existence. Everything continues in some form at some time in some space. We offer this up for contemplation over December because it can help when it seems there is “no end in sight” and how that can be used to your emotional and intellectual advantage. You do not want to aim for an end. You just want to aim for your next day. Your long-term pleasures and joys are built from how you create your days, not by clinging to a fantastical endpoint of bliss. Existence is a spectrum and you will always experience that spectrum. You simply improve your navigation of it. YOU ARE A GIFT - This is fact. This is a truth. Every day that you live comes from your capacity to give. Not only to yourself but to others. You give yourself this life. You share this life with others. It is often easy to forget that the choices you make on such a mundane level are some of the most loving and beautiful choices you make. Every day that you rise from sleep comes not from a momentum of life, but from the effort you give to living. However frustrated, disappointed, or daunting a life, you are here because it is worth it to you in ways you may not even imagine at the time. But a part of you knows that gifts are not about what you can see on the outside or what is obvious. You unpack a gift. You reveal a gift. As you move into your holiday season, it can be helpful to remember that many things, people, and that you are gifts that do not always reveal the contents up front, but are gifts, nonetheless. Practice seeing your most mundane moments and choices and efforts as part of the great unpacking of gifts. You may not like or understand all of them, but they are gifts. And you are worth unpacking.

    Hey everyone! As one of the first things I plan to do for the community in this time of great uncertainty, I am adding a Michael Speaks to the schedule for March 21st at 1pm Eastern. I know a few of you have used your hard-earned money to get a jump on Michael's insights for this pandemic and that is extremely generous of you. I don't want any of you to feel you have to do that, so I wanted to offer up this free/donation session. If you would like to help support the site, community, me, and more events like this, please consider donating here. MICHAEL SPEAKS: Pandemic 2020 MARCH 21st, 1pm EASTERN I will not be announcing this beyond this thread so as to keep this more intimate for our TLE community members and not a spectacle. SPECIAL GUIDELINES: Considering the focus that may be required for this session, it will be a specially-formatted session with 1 to 3 people designated to ask questions on everyone's behalf. APPOINTED QUESTIONERS: The students who will be asking the questions on behalf of the community will be announced here soon. SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS HERE: If you have questions that you would like to have asked on your behalf, please post them in the thread here. Be clear, be concise, be as direct as possible as usual. It is not guaranteed that your question will be asked. See you at 1pm Eastern on Saturday in the usual chat room! Troy

    I know this has already been announced, but it is with a heavy but loving heart, we see the death of another beloved TLE member. Maxim has passed. This was a long-time coming and he did a lot of work to prepare for this. I don't know how he is or where he landed, but I know where he was and where he stood while with us. Please post your memories or images or thoughts and love in honor of Maxim as this will stand as a memorial thread to Maxim. Visit his profile to access his final exchanges with Michael and what was discussed as he consciously and courageously entered the end stages of this life. He will be missed. PS - his name is pronounced with an O, as in MOXim, not the usual MAXim. Just something to know.

    ENERGY REPORT December 2018 2018 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) As DECEMBER brings the year to a close, the emphasis on Greed was at its highest in November and the consequences of Greed are being emphasized in December. It is important to note that Greed is not when you acknowledge that you do not have something that you want or need. Acknowledging what you want, need, and do not have is a healthy and valid form of information and insight that can help you to make better choices. Greed is when you fear not having enough of something you already have to the point where you become fixated and controlled by that fear. Your focus shifts away from “creating” and falls toward “taking.” Most of our students do not struggle with Greed, but as part of the patterns of this year, there may have been an exploration of all of the areas of your life where you are lacking. This means you are likely exploring how you respond or react to all of the things you need and want. November may have helped bring into focus what you need and want, and December may explore how you respond to those wants and needs. Do you Create or do you Take? Surprisingly, December brought with it a burst of Positive Pole energy from among the collective consciousness and if this is sustained, the year would “end” in the Positive Poles of Warrior, Dominance, Power, and Pragmatist, supported by the Higher Emotional energy of Love. Greed is being uncovered and dismantled and all of those who would be locked in the Negative Poles would have the support to shift in their perspectives and actions but would deal with fairly significant consequences of any harmful perspectives and actions. This is slowly being seen on a global scale among those in power, and this emphasis on consequences is likely to carry over into the new year. If you made it through this year with your emphasis on the Positive Poles of the collective Overleaves, you may be having a better December than expected, even if only in mood and levity. If you are finding that December is dark and heavy and difficult, it may be helpful to read through the previous reports of the year to gain insight and memory into how to align with the Positive Poles of the year so that you can bring some of that levity of mood and increased empowerment to yourself. This is not a time for you to resign or give up or give in. This is a time to own your right to this life, to your love, to your energy, to the truth, and live fully in that, regardless of what you still want or need. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): December 3rd - 10th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- EMOTIONAL HOUSE CLEANING - This looks to be a deep and thorough “house cleaning” of the emotional body before moving into the new year. Many of our students will likely find heightened dream activity or deep sleep, heightened sensitivity or numbness, heightened energy or lethargy, heightened enthusiasm or despair. Regardless of where you fall on the extremes of this Energy Shift, your Emotional Body is being purged and this is going to unearth emotions and dreams and symbols and perspectives that may feel as if someone just dumped out a world of boxes from your storage unit, attic or basement. For many of you, this is exciting and you sort through with enthusiasm for your journey, regardless of where it has taken you. For others, it can be daunting and overwhelming and act as a reminder of how exhausted you are, compounding your exhaustion. If you fall into the latter scenario, it can be helpful to remember that it is okay to need and want rest, but that this is not a defining state. It is a healing state. If you feel exhausted, you need rest. Let yourself rest. That means your mind and heart, as well as your body. Give yourself a break. Give yourself credit. Give… yourself. December 31st - January 3rd -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE -- This looks to be a convergence drawing together more parallels aimed for collective recovery and healing. A Healing Nexus, if you will. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER DECEMBER: YOU ARE NOT DONE - If you have found a plateau of bliss and joy, you are not done. If you have found a plateau of despair and depression, you are not done. You are never done. Ever. This may sound wonderful or terrifying, but this is the nature of existence. It will never serve you in any way to assume that you ever reach a finish line of success or failure. Knowing this truth when you are happy helps you to embrace and bask on that wave of happiness. Because it will change. Knowing this truth when you are in despair or depression helps you to know that this is not a conclusive or defining state. Because it will change. It can be difficult to remember that you can be happy or that you can be so sad when you are in one of these or the other, but you will be ALL of this because all of it is you.

    ENERGY REPORT September 2018 2018 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Dominance (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Pragmatist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) SEPTEMBER brings with it a strong and clear division in the world between those who are choosing to emphasize Efficiency and those who are choosing to emphasize Dogma, the Positive and Negative Poles of Pragmatism, respectively. We were looking for a leaning in one direction over the other regardless of which Polarity one had become attached, but it does not appear to be that this will be the case. There is a clear divide and the rest of the year will be a kind of showdown between the two Polarities. Although there is no collective leaning in one direction or the other, there is a majority who have shifted toward Efficiency and see that the world cannot progress within the confines of any Dogma. It may come as a surprise, but most fragments prefer progression over regression, and for those who are locked in Dogma, progress has been learned to equate with something terrifying and it must be stopped, regardless of the cost. This makes for a rather precarious time over the next 3 months, depending on how threatened those in Dogma come to feel. For those in the Positive Pole of Pragmatism, solutions are all about Efficiency, and this means exploring the range between flexible compromise and clear boundaries. On the world stage, you may begin to see a move into clear boundaries before considering flexible compromise. This means that while Efficiency is the priority for those in the Positive Pole, it will still come across as threatening to those in the Negative Pole. In other words, conflict is fairly unavoidable at this point. In your personal lives, our students are likely to align deeply with one Polarity or the other and find themselves locked in Dogma or unlocking a wave of Efficiency that frees a great deal of energy to be used for something other than cocooning defenses. When one moves into Efficiency, it means being able to slide to all of the Positive Poles of all other Attitudes. On a collective level, this is a slide to Spiritualist, a move toward Possibilities and potential. For many of our students, a sense of unlocking your potential and the potential of progress and relief can be seen as a sort of light at the end of a long tunnel. For those locked in Dogma, the early emphasis on Greed will likely spring into focus and feel as if it is taking over all perspective. It is likely to come suddenly and blindingly through reactionary defenses. We will discuss more the force and function of Greed in further reports, but the main emphasis will be that one determines that one does not have enough of something and this becomes a fixation. The mind and body become locked on that which must be taken in order to have more. Greed does not seek to create or find solutions, but to take because one is entitled and “deserves” to have that which is lacking. Greed mixed with Dogma is the stuff of wars, both in the world and within. See our previous reports for more details on how to help move yourself out of Dogma if you feel you have locked yourself into this perspective. The “lock” only remains if consciousness is diminished, but if you make the effort and enlist your awareness, this lock is powerless against your consciousness and power of choice. September will seem to be a coasting along toward October. A brief respite before taking on the challenges of a world struggling with an emphasis on Greed to cap off the year. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): September 5th - 7th -- Energy Shift -- Mood Swings - This Energy Shift looks to be a wave of emotional static, so to speak, that many students may feel and find challenging over these dates. Agitation, distraction, annoyance, wild dreams, exhaustion and even aching in the joints and muscles. This is a strange fluctuation based on your adapting to the climate of stress in which you must still function as healthily as you can. This shift will help those who are in the Positive Pole to unlock the slide to Spiritualist and begin to see possibility and potential. For those who are falling further into Dogma, it is bracing for impact that will have one landed in a heightened state of agitation and distraction that will either become the norm or be transformed away from Dogma over the rest of September. September 25th - 27th -- NEXUS -- DIVERGENCE - This Nexus appears to be all about unexpected obstacles being brought up for examination and either be remedied or to branch realities in directions that deal with the obstacles in very different ways. Over this Nexus period, we would expect that these obstacles would not be minor, but sudden and solid that force a need for immediate solutions, both on the world stage and in the personal life. To the extent that one has moved into the Positive Poles of Pragmatism, these obstacles would find readily available solutions, but the more one has been locked into Dogma, these obstacles may be life-changing/altering in the long run. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER SEPTEMBER: JUST STAY AWAKE - As you dance between the polarities of Efficiency and Dogma, the inclination to simply want to fall back asleep, metaphorically speaking, may be strong. You may feel more than ever that you would rather opt out and focus only on a minor circle of responsibilities, to disconnect from reality and cocoon into a world that feels safer and calmer. This is your choice and it may be important for you to remove yourself from the cycles of stress and exposure to world events that are overwhelming. Or you may feel more motivated than ever to contribute and help make a difference in the world. Regardless of which direction you go, you can fall asleep, lose consciousness, and find yourself enduring and dispassionate and weary, leading you toward apathy. We suggest that whichever direction you feel inclined to move, permanently or temporarily, that you JUST STAY AWAKE. By “stay awake” we mean that you allow your feelings, your passions, your frustrations, your anger, your pleasures and joy and moments of brilliance and darkness. Stay awake. Stay alive to your life.

    Michael Speaks: The Nine Priorities 2017-10-02 Channeled by Troy Tolley in a live session at TLEGG 2017 Note from Janet: Can we all just agree that @DanielaS ROCKS for getting all three TLEGG transcripts done so quickly?!! MEntity: OK. Bear with us as we strengthen our delivery. As we do so, hello to each of you and welcome back. Today we will be talking about what currently we will describe as the Nine Priorities. This is fairly new information, though you may see hints of it throughout the questions and answers among our students over the years. What we are doing as we evolve our body of teaching with our students is expand in two different directions. One is in a larger scale so that we can explore with you those larger contexts that are very difficult to imagine. But also, to focus more acutely within a lifetime so that you can understand more intimately how you work on levels that are “you” as a body and a biology representing a Consciousness that includes choice on that level as well. You are making conscious choices as a meeting ground between your Essence and Personality, and there are choices that your Essence makes, and there are choices that your Consciousness makes in that meeting ground. But there are also choices being made that are driven by a more unconscious, or subconscious, fuel within your individual Personalities. These may or may not be related to past lives. They tend to be unique to who you are in this lifetime and help put a stamp on the current you in a way that is meaningful even if it may not be obvious. So, while you have a Goal for a lifetime and a Mode and Attitude and so forth, you will also find that your path is defined by one or more of these Nine Priorities that have in some way been generated within your lifetime, and that creates a trajectory for great lengths of time if not the entire lifetime. So, while you can understand yourself in terms of the meeting ground where the Goal is describing your Personality, these Priorities can help you to understand what is happening even deeper than that within who you are, that defines who you are. The first one we will cover is the Priority, and we can also interchange the terminology of the Nine Priorities or the Nine Defining Factors of a lifetime. Some of you will find that based on your experiences, and this can occur at any point in your life, but we are speaking of whatever point before this moment, has been defined by DEATH. This is one of the Nine Priorities that can occur within a lifetime that defines the trajectory of your life. A pivotal experience regarding Death, a Death in your life, sends you on a trajectory that is uniquely defined and different from the other Nine Priorities. So, the Priority of the Personality is to resolve whatever has been stamped upon the life in some way from the experience of a Death. We are going to go through these as succinctly as possible, and then we will take your questions and elaborate if we can. This is new information coming through this channel, so it may be a little choppy at moments. Another Defining Factor, or Priority, is GRIEF. This is a life that is stamped with a pattern of constant challenges around loss, disappointments, failed expectations, and while Death may be a part of this, it expands more beyond that into losing a job, losing a girlfriend or boyfriend or husband, or a halt in some way that forces one to face a change that was unexpected. And then there is a period of Grief. Some lives, some Personalities, as an undercurrent are fueled by this persistent pattern of Grief in the life. We wish to point out that none of these are bad or good, but it helps to understand that if a life is defined by this, it is not a curse. It is an experiential pattern from which you must extract as much as you can as a conscious and sentient being and understand that it is not imposed on you or a curse or just your bad luck. There is a part of you that is an undercurrent of your biology, the consciousness of this body, that is interested in some way in that particular trajectory. We share this with you so that you can develop compassion for those paths and transcend them in some way, so that you are not trapped in them but can learn from them. The next is BODY IMAGE and HEALTH. Some lives are completely defined by a pattern of constant struggle with how you appear to other people in terms of Body Image. We are not speaking in terms of Chief Negative Features. We are speaking of the internal struggle about how one is shaped in the world as a representation of themselves. As well as Health, which is tied together with Body Image. This trajectory is defined by persistent struggles that fall under those categories of Health and Body Image. And the reason these are connected is because sometimes the Body Image element is not about something you can change. It is about how you are perceiving yourself in relation to how you assume others see you. And this affects your Health in physical ways as well, and psychological ways. So, Body Image and Health are intertwined together The three that we just covered could be said to be linked to the Truth path of trajectories or Priorities. Those who are dealing with these three particular trajectories or Defining Factors or Priorities are exploring Truth in ways that cannot be explored outside of those trajectories. Because these make you face the Truth quite directly and intimately, or at least carry you in a trajectory in a way that will help you to find a pivotal moment of Truth. Another Defining Factor or Priority is SEX. There are those of you who are driven by Sex. We will not point any fingers. [Laughter] And this may be something that is assumed must be repressed or set aside as something wrong with you. And there may be challenges because of the cultural norms that must be adhered to and the boundaries of social interaction. But if Sex is part of what is the trajectory or the Defining Factor or the Priority that your body is trying to pursue, you must find a way for that to be explored. And part of the process of that trajectory is finding the appropriate ways for this to be explored. But it is nothing to be ashamed of or to hide or to repress. It is something to celebrate and find its way, find its path, create that path for that Priority of Sex. This may sound shallow to some who do not have it as a trajectory but for those who have it as a Priority it is a very serious undercurrent of energy that is very difficult to manage and must be explored in a loving and conscious way. Another path or Priority is ADDICTION. There are some bodies, and all bodies to some degree, but there are some bodies that must deal with the path or the Priority of challenges connected to Addiction. Addiction could be defined as a dependency upon which you are struggling to free yourself. So, Addictions can come in all forms, whether it is a chemical Addiction, an emotional Addiction, an intellectual Addiction. But it tends to have more control over your choices than you do. And therefore, those who are defined by that path, or put Addiction as a Priority, must focus on the dance that occurs when facing those challenges of defining oneself on one's own terms outside of the gravity of dependency. Many who have this trajectory may not even know that they have a trajectory of Addiction, or a Priority of Addiction, because some Addictions are quite culturally acceptable. So, it is up to the individual to know, to discover, that there is a pattern in the life that repeats in terms of dependency on something that either relieves them of the responsibility of choice or that they fight against to try to get their power of choice returned to them. So, Addiction is another Priority. Another path or Priority is RELATIONSHIPS. There are some of you who need to be with others. There are some of you who need to be touched, who need to be heard, to be seen, to communicate, to exchange in ways that are your resource for learning. These are what we refer to as Relationships. There are some who shun relationships and do not understand why they are pressured to pursue Relationships or to be around people. That is because that is not a Priority for them. But for those who have Relationships as a Priority, it is time to embrace that trajectory as something that your body, your biology, your most acute levels of Personality seek as its playground for learning about itself. How you do this is up to you but allowing Relationships to be a Priority and pursuing them and all the challenges that go into this is yours. These three could be said to be on the axis or the line of Love, the paths of Love. The next path or Priority is CAREER. Some of you define yourselves and your lives by what you are doing in terms of a Career. This is a path or a Priority that focuses on an exchange that rewards your contributions. Exploring what skills and talents you have that can be contributed in a way that recreates a circuit of reciprocation and sustainability is a Priority for some of you and not a Priority for many of you. All of these apply to Old Souls as well. None of these are more inclined to be true for younger souls or Mature Souls. All of these can be true for every Soul Age because of imprinting and the randomness of the consciousness that rises from the cells that are your body, and their interests that become a part of your own. Some of you are not so interested in prioritizing Career, but you find that you are prioritizing MONEY. You simply need Money. You simply need to find a way to get it. [Laughter] You find that the struggle and the Priority is a dance between rejecting it and accepting it and understanding it as a currency for the rides that are available on Earth as part of your experiences. Money is a ticket, so to speak, to get to some of the rides that are available. And you must do so, you must participate in that system in some way, in many contexts. In many situations you do not have to. But for some Money becomes a distraction, a priority, a challenge, an obstacle. And while we said that these are not specific or distributed across the Soul Ages, Money does tend to be an Old Soul issue that comes up either as a complete non-Priority or a distracting Priority. How you resolve this is up to you and it is part of the dance of your life, the dynamic of your life. We have no solutions for you, but if you find that this is a Priority, it is one that you can, once again, embrace and see from a different angle of creative challenge rather than a curse or an imposition. The final path or Priority is PURPOSE. Some of you simply want this life to matter. That matters more to you than all of the other Priorities, and you want something to be left behind that matters. Now, we can say that most of you feel this way about your lives. You do want them to matter, you do want them to have left something good behind. But for those who have this as a trajectory, a Defining Factor, a Priority, it is quite different than the general want to simply have a good life that matters. Those who have it as a Priority go out of their way to find how to make a difference, how to matter in some way, how to inject themselves into the matrix of life in a way that helps it. Sometimes that Purpose is not always clear and must be defined and explored and experimented with. And sometimes that Purpose is not always necessary and falls flat, and that is part of the exploration and experimentation for those who have Purpose as a Priority. But these final three are for those whose path is exploring Beauty or Energy and how it works in the Physical Plane. So, what we have given you is the three for Truth, Love, and Energy that your bodies as a collection of cells that have their own Consciousness rise up and merge with who you are as a Consciousness but contribute to the path or trajectory that this particular body is on. We point this out because we speak, and many teachings speak greatly, about your soul and this Essence and this body as if it is something you wear. But it is its own Consciousness that is contributing to the choices and factors and paths of your life. It is not just “you.” It is this package of cells that have their own Consciousness as well. As the Old Soul evolves, there comes a point where it is recognized that the entire planet works this way. And we will get to that in another discussion with you. Do you have question or comments that you would like to offer relative to what we have shared? Cyprus: I have a question. Based on what side you are in the Entity, on the Truth, Love, Energy side, does that play a role in what your body is more likely to use as one of these nine options? MEntity: No. Brian: You delineated them in groups of three, of Truth, Love and Energy. Within those groupings are there sub-groupings in terms of one of them representing the Inspirational Axis, another one the Expressional Axis, and the other the Action Axis from each of those? MEntity: No. Cong: Can you tell us what are the top three popular Priorities within this group today and why those three are the most popular? MEntity: No. [Laughter] Martha: Are these things that are chosen before the life, or do they shift as you mature, and things happen, and you go through your life? MEntity: First, we will elaborate on our previous No. [Laughter] We will not do that at this point because we wish to engage you as students for your sharing your revelations about where you might be, and then you can draw from there what you've determined are the top three. Do you understand? What was your question again? Martha: Are these things that are chosen before the life, or do they change as you mature and have experiences? MEntity: They are not chosen before the life. They are chosen as part of life, growing as “you” in a physical body. They do change and can change. If there is a point in your life where the Defining Factor of Death is resolved for you, it can shift to something else. Cyprus: Is that common? MEntity: It is common enough that there is no rule. No life is set as defined by one of these trajectories in any way because the participation in the life can shift that. And if it were set, there would be a lack of choice involved. So, they can change, but many who have it set for the entire life simply did not do the work of participating in that, understanding that trajectory. So, there are lives that are defined by it from that point forward, but for our students and for those who are awake, there tends to be some staggering of movement through the different Priorities. BobbyK: Is there any correlation or is there a higher tendency based on your Goal to possibly be exploring certain paths? For example, when you mentioned the Priority of Purpose, with my Goal being Growth, I resonated instantly with that. But is that common? Or are there plenty of people with Goals of Growth for whom a path of Purpose will never be a part of their life? MEntity: The latter. This is independent from the Goal. There is no correlation or cause relative to anything else other than the Consciousness of the cells of your body literally waking up with you as a presence of sentience and participating in contributing to an interest in what to experience in this form as a host for “you” as “you.” So, if it were defined by the Personality, or rather the Overleaves, there would be an injection or an influence in some way, but this is a completely raw, open set of choices that evolve from the cells that are growing as you. They are conscious. Michael: Do Priorities tend to run in families? I know for me, I resonated with Addiction. And in my family for a couple of generations, as far as I know, lots of people in the family have struggled with different kinds of Addictions. MEntity: Yes, they do. Those who share in Priorities tend to be drawn together or in a pocket of predominant Priorities. The cells that come from the families tend to gravitate towards the familiar Priority already set. This is still a form of choice, but it is one of the influences that can be considered, and strongly. Again, it is not imposed as one can shift into a different Priority over time and with effort. But yes, if you are born to a family who has emphasized the Priority of Addiction, it is highly likely that you may also carry that, at least for a good portion of the life. Michael: And that happens with all the Priorities? MEntity: Yes. Yes. Try being born to a family who prioritizes Career and your Priority is Purpose or Sex, and it can be quite difficult to break out of the pressure to define yourself by a career when all you want to do is have sex. Kerrin: Can a Priority be deliberately chosen to push your Life Task or life in a certain direction? MEntity: Yes, it can be. But if the other is not resolved, it will not take. It must be put alongside. There will be one Priority that is defined by the body and the cells that we are describing as collectively contributing to the path of your life, or the trajectory. But as a conscious individual, that meeting ground, having this information and this map or even simply knowing that these are options in a life in general, can choose to focus on a different Priority and put that alongside of it, but the original Priority still must be addressed. So, for instance, if a life has been defined by a death but one is working on a career, the trajectory of the career is a manufactured trajectory that has not been integrated into the body, and there will always be this undercurrent Priority to resolve the death that has defined the life, or to find peace with it, or to integrate it in some way. Otherwise, even with a successful career, there will be something missing, so to speak, a sense of distraction or dissatisfaction. Does this make sense? Kerrin: It does. But taking Death for an example. If somebody close to you died, hit by a drunk driver and killed, and the person decides to devote their life to changing drunk driving laws. They use that as a catalyst to save others. I was wondering if that would be a healthy way to — MEntity: Yes. There are many times when a death or even a health crisis has shifted someone towards Purpose as a way to resolve those particular undercurrents. Yes, in that way it works very well together. But there will be no moment in your life that one of these is not a Priority. The terminology that we are using here will change if it is on a different planet or a different period of time with a different set of cultural options in the world. They are not consistent, but there will always be these nine Priorities in some way defined along these axes of Truth, Love, and Energy, regardless of where you are. If you have a body, there will be one of nine Priorities that the body starts to generate as a trajectory in your life. Next. BobbyA: In trying to figure out an order of these, prioritizing the Priorities in my own life, I resonated with several of them. If my top Priority was on the Inspiration Axis would the secondary and tertiary also most likely be on the Inspiration Axis or could they just be scattered? MEntity: It can be scattered. You will rarely find that we present to you information that has less structure than this. But because this is not something that is planned, such as your Overleaves and all of the infrastructure of Sentience, but is rising up from the conglomeration of consciousness of cells in your body, it is a very different set, a different map. And that is about as structured as we can get with it. Michael: Would non-sentient creatures have nine Priorities or does it only apply to sentience? MEntity: Non-sentient creatures will have the Instinctive Center driving the lives. The difference in sentience and non-sentience is that meeting ground that allows for the interpretation of the consciousness that is the body. You get a choice in what to do with what the cells of the body contribute to the life. Whereas, in non-sentience they are confined by the template that is the hive soul and the instinctive drives of the body. So, this leads us to a point to bring to you: the cells that make up your body, everything that is a part of your body, is not there randomly. It is not there as a shifting pool of mush to represent you. These cells that are your body are in a kind of incarnation of their own with you as their universe. This is where we are going with some of our deeper explorations of our teaching during this True Application, and this is something that is important to understand as you grow older in Soul Age. You are not just borrowing material from the planet and discarding it. It is choosing to be a part of you as much as you are choosing to give it form and experience and life. The planet evolves from the materials or the cells and the minerals and energy that is you that you leave behind, and it moves back into the pool of the Physical Plane or Earth. It is contributing to the evolution of consciousness on the planet in general. And this is a scale that we have not explored very deeply, if at all, with many of our students. But the pool of material that you draw from is in itself evolving and is choosing to be your body. You are more than just your head floating around looking out into the world through eyes. Further questions? Janet: If you have spent the majority of your life working under the trajectory of one Priority and you reach essentially resolution, is that a point in time where there could be a crisis for the lifetime, maybe causing someone to look for an Exit Point or need assistance to redirect the focus of the lifetime? I'm thinking particularly of people who have had a trajectory of Career and have reached retirement age. MEntity: We may need your question to be clarified. Janet: So, if someone has spent their life focused on Career, that's been their entire trajectory, and they've reached retirement age, is that a crisis point for them? MEntity: No. We understand now. If they remain with the Priority of Career and now there is no option for this, it can become a crisis point for them. Or they make take great solace in the fact that they have fulfilled a long trajectory of that Priority and it is resolved, and then they move into a different Priority. Or it becomes an extension of the life in a way that is simply different. A career can continue even past “retirement,” as long as the context is understood as shifting. If Career remains a Priority, an individual can continue it. So, our short answer would be that that depends on the individuals, where they are with themselves and that Defining Factor when it comes to a point where there is a challenge to it. Next question? BobbyK: Can the concept of the cells sort of reporting up to the whole body be planned out at a macro level? For example, can we apply this to continents or can we apply this to eras of time? Would it be a superficial application of the Priorities to say the 60's, it was heavily imprinted with the Priority of Sex, or Japan is heavily imprinted with the Priority of Career. Does that apply? MEntity: It does. Yes. There are geographical factors in the same way that Michael asked about family lines, or family units, contributing to Priorities, so can cultural and geographical areas. This is less of an influence than the family unit, but it can be, in retrospect in particular, a Defining Factor for understanding an era or a location. But within that, all of that can be chosen. Some simply rise to the top as a Priority for change and evolution on a larger scale, but all of them were somewhere involved. Martha: Do we focus on just one Priority, or do you have a major one and a minor one? MEntity: There is one Defining Factor, though there can be some that are consciously chosen either as a way to deal with that one Defining Factor or as a way to combat and distract from that Defining Factor. But there is just the one. Before we take any more questions, we will ask you now, for Cong's research, [Laughter] what you have felt, and this is not a question that you may be able to answer definitively, which of these has become a Priority for you? If you choose not to reveal this, it is probably Sex. [Laughter] If someone would like to tally these. [Cyprus calls out each Priority and people raise their hands. It was a little chaotic with some misunderstanding. The tally was: Death: 0 Grief: 4 Health and Body Image: 2 Sex: 0 Addiction: 2 Relationships: 7 Career: 2 Money: 2 Purpose: 4] MEntity: We are an Entity comprised of Warriors and Kings and our prerogative is to delegate for you to come to your own consensus because of what was just displayed that we avoided. [Laughter] As you go through this assessment on your own when you have more time to think it through, keep in mind that these are defining trajectories of your life. Not, “Oh, what do I want to do today?” or “Oh, what is important to me?” These are defining trajectories that are an undercurrent to your life so that no matter what you are focusing on or would like to do today or what sounds like fun or important today, has nothing to do with the undercurrent trajectory that you keep coming back to even if you avoid it, even if you do not want to deal with it. It keeps coming back to your consciousness as a struggle, an undercurrent, a challenge. So, keep that in mind when you reassess your Priority, and as part of that assessment play with the ideas, look at the patterns of your life to see if they have had one part focus on one Priority and when it may have shifted to another, and so forth. We point this out because of the theme that Troy set for this weekend's gathering because these are part of the hiccups of your life that define the life. We use the term hiccup because of Troy not as a terminology that we are offering. [Laughter] [Note: TLEGG was defined for 2017 as the Sugar Hiccup Edition.] These tend to be generated as either pivotal hiccups in the life that interrupt and then send you on a trajectory or they are resolved and a more conscious shift toward a Priority happens when one is resolved, and you open to another. The key here is in your embracing your trajectory in a way that you can participate in its resolution rather than fight it and presume that it is something imposed upon you. And that is what we would like to leave you with, so that as you struggle with some of the undercurrents of your life that feel as if they are not yours, they are. They are yours. And you have an entire collection of cells that have consciousness working with you as well as in Essence. And you are all of that. We do plan to expand in this direction that we explored with you today to look at the more acute dynamics of your existence in the Physical Plane beyond the meeting ground of your body as a soul and Personality. And this could be said to be one of the first introductions to that direction. And with that, we will close tonight and say good-bye and we will see you again. *** Note from Janet: Here is a table that summarizes the priorities:
  47. 43 points
    MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin. We understand the topic requested is about navigating collective and personal crises and we will speak on this a bit before opening the floor to your questions. First, we will define Crisis as any event or experience that overwhelms the Intellectual, Emotional, and Moving Centers to such as extent as to generate paralysis, panic, or pain. The Intellect can be overwhelmed and the Emotional and/or Moving Centers step up, or the Emotional Center can be overwhelmed but the Intellectual and/or Moving Centers step up, but when all three Lower Centers are overwhelmed, it is a crisis. There are various types of Crises, but the type of Crises that we see most of our students enduring over the past 1 to 3 years has been what would be termed an Existential Crisis. An Existential Crisis is the sudden shock or slow wave of conclusion that life and existence have no point or meaning. It is the stripping away of aliveness, spirit, and pleasure from nearly every element and layer of life. An Existential Crisis comes when there is a lack of answer or unsatisfying answer or unwanted answer to "what is the point?" Most fragments have an Existential Crisis during the 4th Internal Monad when they have asked themselves to define themselves on their own terms vs the terms taught to them. When one must decide who one is instead of being told who one is, it can throw one into an Existential Crisis as the responsibility of defining oneself on one's own terms can be daunting. The reactionary defense to this Existential Crisis can be to return to the familiarity of youth and try to recapture that in some way. This is why many who have a "midlife crisis" will suddenly return to inappropriately immature behaviors to resist "growing up" and defining themselves. The Existential Crisis that most of our students recognize as being in effect now is this very same rite of passage, or "internal monad" but on a mass scale. The shift between Young to Mature requires this process similar to the 4th Internal Monad. As humanity must begin to define itself on its own terms, rather than on the terms handed down by generations before them, it is quite daunting. It is already daunting to do something such as this in the individual life, but billions are now participating in some way in this collective shift. What you are finding is that the comforting foothold of familiarity and tradition and consensus and status quo are no longer accessible to any of you. Suddenly, everyone has a new standard for existence. Everyone has a new opinion about what is priority and what is meaningful. Suddenly, everyone is speaking up, standing up, stepping up. For those who refuse to grow, the resistance and defense will be to fight as hard as possible to return to what was familiar, unquestioned, traditional, "great again." For those who are listening and learning and willing to grow such as our students, the Crisis is one where you have pitted yourself against the masses, or feel as if you have been pitted against the masses. Suddenly, your familiar and comfortable ideas about who you are in your world are now measured against who you are in THE world. Are you doing enough, being enough, helping enough, paying attention enough, thoughtful enough, together enough, etc. And if you see no evidence of this vague "enough," then your entire existence, meaning, and value come into question. This is the older souls' way of reactionary defense. It is a regression into Young Soul tactics for motivation and meaning. You are using outdated methods of motivation and meaning in a new world where those tactics do not work. There is something comforting in berating yourself, pushing yourself, scolding yourself, diminishing yourself, being competitive, rewarding yourself, punishing yourself, even if this means losing and feeling loss. The world of winning and losing makes more sense to you than the new world of BEING. However Old your soul, you have never lived in a Mature or Old Soul world before. Old habits die hard, so to speak, and while you are willing to listen, learn, and grow, you are in an Existential Crisis because meaning has always been handed to you before, and now you know you must create it on your own. And to do this while everyone else is doing the same. At the moment it likely feels as if all of this is only relentless noise. And you are correct. But that is the noise of evolution. Many of you associate this Crisis with the shock and aftershock of the Presidential Election in the United States, but the Crisis began long before this around 1987 when the Harmonic Convergence was implemented. From that point the acceleration in instant global communication began. Instant and real-time communication on an ever more accessible and massive scale brought the breakdown in your little worlds and personal realities that were so cozy and familiar, even if with their own struggles. Climate Change, Political Conflict, Economic Disparity, Social Injustices, etc. existed long before the recent years, but you are no longer receiving bits and pieces about these subjects for easy dismissal or digestion. Now "everyone" is speaking up and "everyone" is listening. When you are subject to so much noise, you begin to shut down and move into Crisis mode. What we speak of today will not address every student's concerns or circumstances, of course, but this is a general state of crisis that we find among most of our students. What we can suggest as a general method for navigating this type of Crisis is to "digitally detox" on a regular basis, so to speak. We cannot stress enough how much our students might need to "unplug" and turn their attention to nature, but also to live at least one day a month, if not every week, AS IF everything is ok. This not a suggestion to ignore collective issues or personal issues, but that if you have the option to give yourself a day of simply BEING, it goes a long way in returning to your days of doing. We know we cannot resolve the nuances of all of our students' varying degrees of crises, but what we speak of today may help bring some insight from which to then expand later. We will open the floor now for questions for as long as our channel can. ****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN**** Wendy: Thank you Michael. I really resonate and see how I have been trying to use young soul tactics for motivation and meaning and want to move away from that but don't know what that would look like. Can you tell us more about creating our own meaning? MEntity: Mature Soul tactics for motivation and meaning tend to be "for the sake of." For example, loving for the sake of loving. Baking for the sake of baking. Playing for the sake of playing. Making money for the sake of making money. Watching TV for the sake of watching TV. In other words, the choice to participate in your life in any way is not motivated by payoffs and rewards, or avoidance of punishment. You do things because they are there to do. You enjoy things because you enjoy them. There is no need to justify or compare. You care because you care. You help because you can help. You take care of yourself because you need to take care of yourself. And so on. Wendy: Are there old soul tactics? Or is it all about the mature ones? MEntity: Alongside all of this, you also allow room for when you cannot help, or ask for help when you cannot help yourself, etc. The younger soul looks for meaning in advance of doing or being something, while the older soul creates meaning after or during the doing or being. The Mature Soul tactics are part of the range we would describe as "older soul" tactics. Wendy: Okay thank you. We can discuss Old Soul tactics for meaning and motivation in another exchange as the Old Soul tactics are actually no longer tactics. Next, UMA Uma: Hello Michael, I have been doing exactly what you suggest, unplugging from the news as much as possible, but navigating the nightmare reality show that fuckface has turned our world into is very tricky. Uma: Things seem to be moving quickly now, and I'm sure that impeachment is almost 100% likely. What is your number now for impeachment? And what about conviction in the Senate? what's the percentage of that likelihood? And what is the latest on the IS showing up? any change in that likelihood? Uma: Last time I asked the percentage for re election was higher than impeachment! I hope that has changed now. MEntity: Nothing has changed much since you last asked, but we can say that a significant update may be available near the end of December. We have no significant updates at the moment. Uma: Okay! Thank you. NEXT, Maureen Maureen: Michael, referring to you saying that “The shift between Young to Mature requires this process similar to the 4th Internal Monad.” What Stage of this Internal Monad are we in at this time? MEntity: This would be the equivalent of a shift between the 3rd Stage of REALIZATION and the 4th Stage of MANIFESTATION. The process is "stuck" at Stage 3 in terms of completion. The 1st and 2nd Stages were completed in the Positive Poles, but the 3rd is in the Negative Pole which has carried over to the Negative Pole of the 4th Stage. The shift to the Positive Poles is likely to come by March of 2020, but we will have to look again. Maureen: Thank you! MEntity: One more question and we must conclude after that. NEXT, DianeHB DianeHB: Going back to the move into crisis mode because of the overwhelming "noise," and urgency of the various global issues, what is your suggestion if it doesn't feel like one is doing "enough" because it seems like the issues we're facing are at emergency levels, and that allowing ourselves to "be" and do what we like isn't enough? MEntity: "Enough" will never seem enough until it is enough. Until then, "enough" is often an unknown quantification. In addition to this, one cannot measure one's individual ideas of "enough" against the collective need for enough. One can only know the limits of what one can contribute. If one wishes to ensure that one is doing enough, we can suggest that you are honest about your limitations and your strengths, and when you reach your limit, do or be a little more. We suggest this because you cannot determine if you have done enough, but you can always determine if you can do more. And it is okay if you cannot do more. It is better that you do well what you can do than to destroy your ability to do anything at all. Allowing yourselves to be and do what you like does not have to be in contradiction to doing and being enough. Honesty is vital for assessing if "doing what you like" is in contradiction to doing and being enough. The issues being faced are at levels that warrant such concern, but as long as it is possible, you must give yourselves days of joy and pleasure and community and kindness and rest as much as you give yourselves tasks and challenges and work to do. There is a reason there is True Work, True Play, True Rest, and True Study. All of these must be nurtured in some way even the most pressing of times for the greatest effectiveness. DianeHB: That makes a lot of sense. Thank you MEntity: We will conclude here for today. The collective consciousness is growing and evolving. The world is changing and for the better in nearly every way. Neither of these may seem true at the moment, but they are. One need only look back at the history of humanity to see that no setback ever stops your evolution away from chaos and toward beauty, away from violence and toward compassion, away from scarcity and toward abundance, away from oppression and toward freedom. Enough of you understand that what you contribute matters and this is what has "saved" humanity every single time. Sometimes we need to remind you. Sometimes that is all you may need. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    ENERGY REPORT March 2019 2019 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Artisan (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Flow → Acceptance/Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Observation → Passion/Reserve (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) MARCH arrives with a short burst of chaotic and frenetic energy and then rather quietly settles down for most of our students and carries with the days a fairly steady tone of improved mood and energy over the month. We see most of our students finding a Flow that works for them and moving out of Inertia and into a more sustained state of Freedom, the Positive Pole of Flow. This would likely carry out through the rest of the year, so it will be helpful to remember that any chaos or frenetic bursts or derailments can be helped by looking at how better to Flow with anything that seems overwhelming. Keep in mind that navigating forces greater than you is not the same thing as agreeing with or liking those forces. Flow is about owning whatever force is your own and focusing on that rather than relinquishing all choice and control and giving up or giving in. The “hurry up and wait” energy may still come and go over March, but we think it may be less agitating. Some of the relief and calm that many of our students are beginning to experience, or at least feeling that it is within reach, is because Flow is sliding to Acceptance for most of our Students and Flow is sliding to Discrimination for most world events. Students are not only starting to accept and adapt to the flow of the year and settling into what works best for them, but they are also seeing some justice and accountability and revelation happening on a larger scale. This frees up a great deal of energy that has been locked in worry and anguish over world events and lets them focus on more personal and local concerns of well-being. It helps that Observation Mode is coming into focus over April through June. This year is unique in that there will likely be a very brief dip into Surveillance, the Negative Pole, but most are shifting quickly into Clarity over April. We will discuss this more for April’s report. For those students who may feel no resonance to this slow but steady move into a more calm and focused state, you would want to look first at your Moving Center and what it needs as a means of balance. What you need is likely some form of increased movement or stillness. If you find yourself panicking, constantly rushing, agitated, fidgeting, restless, etc, you likely need more directed movement. Try putting on music that you love and moving gracefully in some way to this music. Let your body interpret the sounds in movement and get your energy moving in a way that is lovely and elegant. If a dance with yourself is not appealing to you, then a nice walk can help. We do not mean a rushed walk that you squeeze in and then use that to add more worry to your day. We mean take a walk. Let it be a gift of moments that you have a right to claim and own your right to enjoy it. If you find yourself lethargic and distant, lost and even depressed, we suggest that you may require more directed stillness. Sit up, sit straight, hold your arms out in front of you with one palm up and the other palm down. Move your arms and hands as you feel the intuition to do so as if you are manipulating invisible energy. Create graceful moves or geometric shapes that feel right. Imagine that you are packaging your energy in these movements and shapes and setting the packages down around you on the ground/floor. Move your hands across your body in ways that you can imagine picking up energy to package, then magically package it in a pleasant shape, and set it down. As you do this, breathe, breathe gently and let any tears come that may suddenly rise. Let yourself sense a stillness and calm within you that is not oppressive, but lighter and kinder. Leave your packages on the ground as energetic art and go about your day with a bit more light and settled energy. Neither practice above is magical or miraculous or a quick fix. They are practices in connecting to yourself and using your tools and environment to bring YOU back into focus and presence. Nearly all instances of such frenetic, frustrating and panicked states come from removing yourself from the equation of your participation in your life. Nearly all instances of such lethargic, distant, lost and depressed states come from removing yourself from the equation of participation in your life. These practices above help you to engage again and in playful enough ways that it helps remind you that you are alive and have a right to be a part of your life. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): March 1st - 5th -- NEXUS -- DIVERGENCE - Parallel branches with more interest in “worst-case” scenarios have branched off for their own exploration, leaving “this” parallel with some relief. March 28th - 30th -- Energy Shift -- ENTHUSIASM/OPTIMISM - A burst of enthusiastic and curious and optimistic energy looks to be generating among the masses in a way that might reach many of our students. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MARCH: BE YOUR OWN PRESENT - You are the meeting ground of time and space and consciousness that creates your interpretation and experience of reality. You are the reason you are here. You are the reason you live and love and walk and breathe. Getting angry, upset, feeling lonely, depressed, confused, agitated, frustrated, sad, etc. do not erase you or reduce you. You are still here. If you feel less and less a part of the reality you live, it may be because you forgot that you are the gift you came to be. This is not a string of pointless words to console or distract you. It is simply true. You would be someone else if you were someone else, but you are you and that is who you came to live for and through. Bring yourself back to the present and allow yourself to be the present, both in terms of being a gift and in terms of owning your right to be a part of the equation that shapes your reality.

    We had no time to recover from TLEGG before diving into our NY Comic Con so things have been pretty non-stop around here, but things should settle down in the week ahead. Energy Report will be posted soon! I miss TLE and I already miss the TLEGG peeps so much. Despite the horrifying news in the world, I am comforted by the deep gratitude and awe for the people who make up this community. There was a time when the Michael "Community" was a devastating disappointment of chaos and in-fighting and back-biting and everything I would never have expected to be in a Michael Community. It was so depressing. But, instead of leaving, I stayed and decided to create what I most wanted as a Michael Community. I decided I couldn't wait for others to figure it out and create that space. So I took a chance and stuck around and TLE was born. Many many years later and now I am constantly in awe and in love and learning and growing and basking in kindness and compassion and intelligence. This is the community I had envisioned. You are the people I remember and love and knew were out there. Thank you for everything you bring to this community and to the world. This gives me strength for what we need to do with our world around us. We have to stay. We have to create what we most want to have as a world around us. We can't wait for someone else to do it. It's exhausting and scary and takes time, but as you can see from TLE, it will happen. It. WILL. Happen. And we are going to keep doing the work to make it happen. Thank you for already making the world a better place by your being in it. Love to all of you. Troy

    January 28, 2018 Note: Today's questions were pulled from Feedback Request: State of the Planet 2018. The questions were collected into a document, sorted into similar questions, and ultimately some were modified and combined based on Michael's initial statement. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Janet: Michael, do you have an opening statement or should I post the first of our questions? MEntity: Though Troy had his own idea for a more coordinated and organized presentation of our information regarding "the state of the planet," we are quite comfortable with the organic unfolding of insight and information from your questions. We will start with a statement first, of course. Most years come and go and contribute to the myriad paths that Sentience will take in its exploration of consciousness and creativity. Some years become the result of a trajectory of patterns that create what we refer to as a SEQUENCE. A Sequence is a strong trajectory created from cumulative effects of choices leading up to the Sequence. A Sequence still has a great deal of variation and variables, but far fewer than before. If a Sequence is left on its trajectory, it will lock into what we refer to as a VECTOR. A Vector is the highest probability for a certain direction or outcome or result. Think of it this way: If a car is driving at 25 kilometers per hour and headed toward a wall 20 kilometers away, there is a great deal of choice and variables remaining that could steer the car from hitting the wall. If the car is going 75 kilometers an hour toward a wall that is 1 kilometer away, it is similar to a Sequence and while there are plenty of chances for redirection from the wall, but many choices will still lead to a crash. If a car is driving at 100 kilometers per hour and 100 meters from wall, it is fairly certain to be on Vector for a crash. 2018 is a Sequence year. There is too much force and momentum of trajectory for it to be "just another year." It is directly aiming for several "walls." This is not as ominous as it may sound. It is growing pains. 2018 brings with it a State of the Planet that is leading toward global unification, "one way or the other." The Mature Soul Age is here. And the ideals of the Mature Soul will be implemented in ways that start from the Negative Pole. This means that unification could come in the form of a common enemy, common challenge, common crisis, common ground, common enlightenment, etc. At this point the patterns seem to point to common enemy or crisis because drama is deeply appealing to Mature Souls. The State of the Planet at this point is all about this negotiation toward what would bring the greatest commonality. Even if that commonality is forced or false. In a Young Soul world, any forced or false commonality falls apart when patterns return to "normal." A tornado destroys a town and it comes together like never seen before. Rebuilding completes and the bonds dissipate. A progressive President is elected to represent common leaps of evolution and acceptance but it all falls apart once the symbol is out of sight. In a Mature Soul world, forced or false commonality are given far more consideration. So even as 2018 may begin to reveal forced or false commonality, it is something that can be built upon, and not just a placating and fleeting state. Building upon the Turning Points of 2016, the "walls" toward which humanity is "driving" at such high speed are the walls of Energy Resource, Consumption, Waste Management, Climate and Environment, Information Management, Social Intelligence, and Diet. Each of these categories have a "wall" that will be hit in 2020. 2018 and 2019 are the Sequence years that will determine the 2020 Vector. This is not a doomsday scenario we describe, and your 2018 and 2019 and 2020 may look like any other year at the time, but they look different from the future. They are the years that made the difference. We will open the floor now to our students, beginning with Janet, and cover as much as we can. We will likely explore this broad subject of "The State of the Planet" in two parts. *****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN***** Janet: Michael, I have the list of all questions at the moment. First, can you speak to the current probability for the Infinite Soul manifestation in or around 2020 and are there any Transcendental Souls preparing the way that you could point out? MEntity: The current probability is at 68%. The Transcendental Souls are all in play and at work across the globe. We will compile a list for Troy of known Transcendental Souls that can be validated, but there are many who will remain unnamed or difficult to identify. For this Manifestation, the Transcendental Souls clearing the path are working in smaller pockets to bring the deep social change rather than taking on larger populations. They are using different tactics than in the past. There is no need for grand stages that get one voice out to the masses. This time there is no need for that because there is a social and technological network in place that can allow the influence of one voice to become the voice of many. That being said, we will point to those we can identify for our students. Troy will need a different focus for that delivery. Janet: Because people are questioning this in the peanut gallery: can we confirm that the probability is in fact lower than previously given? And here is the next question: What type of ‘common enemy or crisis’ would be possible? Contact from non-terrestrials? Major climate-related events? Notable astronomical and/or astrological events? Nuclear events or wide-spread war? Global impact of a major medical event (e.g., catastrophic flu)? MEntity: It does fluctuate. It is lower at the moment. Until it is 100% it is not 100%. The top 5 common enemy or crisis scenarios are in no particular order: CLIMATE - food shortages, diseased supplies, drought, fire, flood, extreme weather, heat waves, water shortages, etc. WAR - Russia successfully exploits the weaknesses and fears of tyrannical or trusting nations. NON-TERRESTRIAL EVENT - discovery and proof of non-terrestrial life; intelligent contact with non-terrestrial life; indisputable evidence of off-planet technology. POWER OUTAGE - catastrophic outages of energy supplies in the form of fuel or electricity in large geographical locations and over great lengths of time; and CRISIS OF CONSCIOUSNESS - a mass shift away from irresponsible consumption and defenses and a wave of surrender to a Greater Good. Keep in mind that this is not a time for nurturing anxiety and dread. We cannot stress enough that this sounds far more ominous than it is likely to be. Regardless of these "walls" that humanity is heading toward, you have a great deal of wisdom, creativity, experience, and maturity for how best to respond and recover. Janet: Are there differences in how the entry into the Mature Soul age appears outside the US? What can those in "safer" locations do to help support the transition from Young to Mature? (Ie: living outside the USA & East Asia, and away from those areas most prone to earthquakes, hurricanes, deadly heat waves and catastrophic crop failures). MEntity: For those ahead of the curve, so to speak, of the Mature Soul Age, there are still heavy Young Soul factors at work in local or accessible parts of the world that can be addressed. Any issues regarding inequality, exploitation, overconsumption, etc. can be addressed with a focus on continued progress and evolution. Any efforts to improve community, resources, education, etc can simply be continuations of what is already in place. There will be world events that touch even the best-case scenarios of community and country, but beyond that, it will always contribute to planetary and sentient progress however local your efforts. In other words, regardless of how comparatively "better" your area of the world may be, the world is no longer able to sustain isolated worlds within the world. Even the most progressive and safe and sound of countries will be contributing to the anchoring of harmony through either nurturing what is already in play, or by tending to blind spots and issues that can easily be missed with "life is good." Janet: What role is China playing in the shift to a global Mature paradigm? Is there any chance of substantial social reform in its near future? MEntity: Social reform will happen. It is at a 98% probability at this point that a Young Soul paradigm will be in full force within 25 years, giving rise to great shifts away from Baby Soul values and repression and toward a rise in independence, feminism, creativity, innovation, etc. Many Young Souls have gathered in China and the Baby Soul culture simply cannot remain sustained. The deep imprinting of respect for history and elders will help the transition to be more gentle and subtle over time than as an uprising. Young Souls in power individually or on a small scale can often wreak havoc, but Young Souls in power as a group and on a larger scale can bring out the best of Young Soul qualities. There will always be Positive and Negative Poles, of course. In a Mature Soul paradigm, there is even greater likelihood of the best qualities implemented. For example, a reckless corporation can easily continue to be reckless in a Young Soul paradigm even if the corporation provides services and goods that are popular and necessary. In a Mature Soul world that same corporation can still provide services and goods that are popular and necessary but there is a level of social awareness infrastructure that can make or break a business if it does not consider the consequences of its actions. So Young Souls can still be competitive but compete for patrons who support better quality of life actions. This would be true of superpowers that are coming from Young Souls. So to answer your question, China could easily set the standard for how best to serve its people quality of life and this would satisfy the competitive edge and still participate in and support the Mature Soul shift. Janet: Will there be any breakthroughs in the next few years, or at least movement toward a breakthrough, in terms of how we handle our garbage? MEntity: Yes. It is inevitable at this point if humanity remains on track for unity. There are several solutions at work to be posed for wide-scale use on current masses of waste, but the most effective and lasting solutions are likely going to be a combination of reduced waste through better packaging and enhanced recycling processes that use "everything" and put all waste back into the system. There are small-scale working prototype cities at work that already successfully eliminate all waste in terms of necessity for discarding and storing, and returning all waste back into the system where it can be used again. This practice is more in keeping with "nature" and how forests work, for example. People are not forests, of course, so they will require a different kind of ecosystem. In the past, it was assumed that people could simply count on the ecosystems of other life forms to take care of human waste. That is not possible for any great length time. In a Mature Soul world, the necessity for Humans to own the responsibility and processes of the Human ecosystem comes into focus. It is often thought that it is more "natural" to exist within and participate with the ecosystems of Earth along with other creatures and living things, but Humans (sentience) are a different system. Sentience must, eventually, own its position of responsibility for itself within the greater ecosystem, and move away from dependence upon it. That is the way of the Mature and Old Soul. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. We will elaborate further on the State of the Planet either in the format Troy has suggested to us, or through your continued Energy Reports. We have much to say about the years ahead, but there is no urgency or emergency. Goodbye, for now.
