    Did you all know that there’s a super moon tonight coinciding with the energy shift??

    Also toward that energy boost: Bernie Sanders just officially announced his run for president in the Democratic primary. Within the first 4 hours of announcing, his campaign raised over $1.5 million, more than Kamala Harris did in her first day. Grassroots excitement is huge right now.

    Frankly, I never sleep well (it's complicated) and lately it's been almost intolerable with over-the-top anxiety but last night I actually had (for me) a fairly good sleep. I was out and about today, driving, supermarket, hospital and online and did notice an upturn in energy today that felt like a pull between FRUSTRATIVE and PRODUCTIVE -- like people either are going about their business getting shit done or want to get shit done but can't -- reflecting the MOVING Centerd year. Case in point is the Trump debacle that points at "fuckface and his fucktard cohorts (including his family) should be in prison already" to "so much shit is coming out (productive) in the last few days we can't keep up with it." And then... what DO we actually DO about it... What do we do with all this ENERGY? Where do we put it? One thing we need is a massive MARCH in the U.S. protesting Trump BUT who would it be directed at to be the actual audience. You need to direct it at the (right) people who are in positions of power right now who would receive the energetic, pointed, outrage and be in a position to actually DO something... anything right now about "IT". I feel something similar when I read @Mike Cleverlyposts on FB about what is happening, or NOT happening, with Brexit. I just re-read the beginning of the Energy Report and, YES, I can feel the BURN that is slowly moving to BURNOUT for many.

    I had been feeling a little "stuck" this month, January was rife with big and little awakenings, discoveries, resonance, all kinds of new understandings and things clicking into place. Becoming awake, coming into "myself", the decision to Live, etc. February had some of this as well, but a lot less, and almost what felt like regression as I was in full zeal over a personal matter and feeling like I had lost some of that inner peace and clarity I got over the previous month. However, yesterday was awesome! I've been reading some non-Michael material (dipping my toe into those ascension nutjobs ), and doing a lot of what felt like Good Work. I had a great meditation session, felt really energized and just in sync, came to some pretty awesome realizations that helped me resolve some fear/apprehension I had about certain things. Recentered my focus on my spiritual studies and growth and moved away from this false personality, negative poled, zeal-ridden, compassionless warpath I'd been on in my personal life. Got some perspective, got some distance, feeling much better. Only to see that it might be due to this energy shift! Well worth the wait! This is especially awesome because I've always felt a certain kind of disconnection from the energy reports. Like I'd read them and be like "ok...I guess" LOL. But this doesn't feel like coincidence, it's yet another synchronicity in a short period of time that's kind of letting me know I'm on the right path and in the right spaces.

    Yes, and it was beautiful! I wanted to start writing down the astrological events that happen during Energy Shifts and Nexuses because Michael said that Nexuses are usually accompanied by astrological events. I've noticed that it's been mostly during full and new moons. I'll start tracking it and will share with you guys later on this year

    We need a pointless funny crap section somewhere. I've thought about it for years. Maybe it can be this thread ?

    I've been on about this all day today but not because I'm excited. His announcement brings dread for me. I so appreciate his ideals, but we've yet to see a practical plan for implementing his ideals. The ideals are worth the gamble, but it could also backfire. But more than that, I dread the return of toxic bros and another division in the Party and another round of trying to get Bernie to pay attention to the issues facing people of color and not just privileged white people and another round of those privileged toxic bros throwing the election because they didn't get what they wanted. For now, I'll go with your optimistic take on it and hope for the best.

    I am definitely feeling that cycle between productive and frustrative. In my personal life, I'm frustrated that certain situations remain unresolved but equally frustrated with myself for still longing for that resolve, chagrined at what seems like an inability to move on. I have been feeling incremental movement in myself, at least, if not in some situations where I don't have complete control. But today especially, I'm really feeling something shifting. I have some more emotional energy being freed up. I do worry that it's just the "up" part of the cycle I've been in for months and that I'm going to crash back into the "down" part of the and again soon. Also, last night my daughter got some kind of huge swollen bug bite and today her teacher called and told me it popped and she had a fever, so I went into controlled PTSD mode and took her to the doctor and she was FINE. Like, no fever, running around, acting normal. I'm grateful for her teachers' vigilance and I know that my PTSD is impossible to avoid triggering sometimes, but this shit sends me into a bad place. Definitely feeling both the incremental loosening up of energy, and the frustration of wanting certain situations to change but they seem completely stuck.

    I have had a mix of great restful sleeps and anxiety over something utterly foolish I did. I was exasperated and I said semi publicly a truth but without evidence, which I have since retracted from social media. I retracted it because I could lose my job over it and I got frustrated and shot my mouth off over understaffing, which then triggered from a higher up a damage control press release revealing actual staffing facts which endorsed my rant about systemic short staffing. Anyhow, I have not lost my job... yet. Famous last words. So I sure my idiocy was screenshot and shown to people in charge. I have a reputation as a running mouth over shortstaffing so this was act in haste repent at leisure gold medal. I feel chastened by the whole experience but it has also made me think twice about shooting my mouth off on social media. I have to be a representative of truth with evidence, not some idiot who rants without evidence. Frustration? Tick.

    Maxim and I first met in 2014, if I'm right, not long after I joined TLE. As it turned out, we weren't too far from one another here in northern California, just north of San Francisco. We met for coffee the first time. Had a great time getting to know one another. Then, from time to time, we'd meet for lunch or dinner too. A few times we'd carpool places. He preferred if I drove and I didn't mind. We carpooled to the West Coast Michael Gathering as well. We kept in touch by phone after he moved farther north to be at his sisters place. He had a beautiful spirit and touched my heart. I miss seeing him at TLE and in the North Bay.

    @AnnaD I had a similar experience on the weekend. About 2 weeks ago, I had talked to a friend of mine (let's call him friend nr.1) about some issues I had with my ex-husband, who got himself in a pickle AGAIN and was low key asking me for money AGAIN. I was very conflicted about this and luckily another friend of mine, whom my ex-husband had also asked for money, decided to help him out. As my ex-husband had asked him not to comment anything about this to me, he asked me to keep quiet about it. But when friend Nr. 1, whom at this time did not know either one of them, asked me if I had decided to give my ex-husband the money, I told him I didn't have to, because friend Nr.2 took care of it. On saturday I was at a birthday party where both of these friends were present and got to know each other for the first time. And friend Nr.1 decided to ask IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY why the other one decided to still give my ex money. It was super uncomfortable and awkward and uncalled for. I had a long conversation with both of them the next day, having to explain to one why the other knew about the money, which made me feel like I had been super disloyal, and having to explain to the other one that it is not okay AT ALL to start discussing issues or problems I have and that I share with him IN PUBLIC, which should acutally be a no brainer. I could have done without this episode. And I was angry at myself for sharing my issues with somebody who apparently can't keep his mouth shut, being kind of mad at myself for not keeping this issue to myself. Anyway, I hope this doesn't have any consequences for you, @AnnaD. Shit like that happens. It sucks, but it happens. We have a mouth. It's not always easy to control it in the way we'd like to

    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. these nights I've been meditating under the moon, gives me a feeling of peace and amplified energy too. And today BTS announced a concert in Sao Paulo. If all goes to plan....I'm going :')

    Honestly from reading that, it feels like there's so much to unpack right there that I'm not actually sure where to start, or even if it's possible... For one, my observations of Bernie's actions before and during his political career have had some of the *most* alignment with the interests of people of color than other political figures. It kills me when people talk as if things like increasing social programs, ending corruption in politics, ending regime-change wars, and campaigning for the working class of this country is something that exclusively benefits "privileged white people". On *multiple* levels, nothing could be further from the truth, and the logic jump is insane to me... and that's not even talking about the guy's *actual* history with fights for racial justice. I feel like this would need a whole separate conversational thread for me to ask how the global mainstream or social democracy should be considered a "gamble" that could "backfire", outside of a concerted effort from those in power to continue dividing people.

    “This is why the lifetime count for many of our students is lower than those who are of a much Younger Soul Age, because the average Grand Cycle count for your species is 3, whereas many of our students average around 9.” At times, I have wondered about any effect the number of Grand Cycles might have on present lifetimes. The current Grand Cycle of my Essence is 10 which now has deeper meaning to me having read this. I’m think I’m going to ask some questions of Michael on this topic down the road.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2009-07-13] [Question] I have a question about the influence of past cycles. It there are two fragments, A and B. Fragment A has completed 15 cycles as a human being. Fragment B has no previous cycles. If both are beginning a new grand cycle, how would the perspective of A be different from B in the Infant stage? Generally how would the experience of the entire new cycle be different? [Michael Entity] We can only speak from observation of similar phenomenon, and what we have observed is that “fragment A” would manifest Essence and propel through the levels of Soul Age at a rate that could be described as “faster” than that of “fragment B.” In most cases of a Sentient Race, the gaps in Grand Cycle experience are bridged by fewer incarnations from those who have more Grand Cycles. In other words, “Fragment A” may have 1 lifetime for every 10 of “fragment B.” This is why the lifetime count for many of our students is lower than those who are of a much Younger Soul Age, because the average Grand Cycle count for your species is 3, whereas many of our students average around 9. [Question] Would there be a qualitative difference? For example I read a book at 12 (younger) and then I read the same book at 50. the same experience but so different also. [Michael Entity] Sometimes that is the case, however, most Grand Cycles are not repeated within the same species or planetary system, so it is not a revisit of familiarity, but a completely new experience for all involved. Most of you have never been Human before. [Question] most? that means that some have . . . [Michael Entity] Yes, but Humans exist in other locations of your Universe. [Question] Are they pretty much exactly the same as us, or are there noticeable evolutionary differences? [Michael Entity] When we said “humans exist in other locations,” we meant that you would recognize them as exactly like you for the most part. [Question] Why go through it a 15th time? Just for speed? [Michael Entity] Grand Cycles are commitments to completely new species and location, or a new species in the same location, or the same species in a new location, but rarely does Sentience return to both the same species and location.

    Although this doesn't necessarily sound like a pleasant Energy Shift, I could definitely use an energy boost right now. I've been super exhausted and tired for the last week or so, no matter how much I sleep.

    Yesterday wasn't like an actual boost in physical energy, but definitely a boost in intellectual clarity. In fact I'm quite tired of doing work I don't actually like. I'm pissed off at a debt-based economy. But I'm not projecting blame onto it, I just know it does not and can not work anymore. I'm trying to strike a balance between pushing to get things done and doing something else to replenish me but it's completely new to me to stop stuff willingly. Ever since I went Vegan the goals I slide to have switched from Acceptance and Discrimination to Submission and Reevaluation. I find myself doing breaks and reflecting and reaching within far more often, not out of simple choice but out of complete necessity or I WILL burnout. From reading all of your comments I can see why it is a Moving Artisan year in Flow. We want to go, but we can't and there's a lot to change to move. I don't like using hope, but I do hope that this energy stops and we can see actual progress come out. At the very least it's all familiar energy for me. I feel like how I did in 2015 when I was working out my addiction to resentment and obstinacy. My guess is the Moving Center has a predominant Emotional Part that is making us further feel like we're spinning our wheels because we're attached to these symbols of a better past or future that is not manifesting (expressing). So we're short circuiting with energy rising. And that energy is going to pop at some point, which I'm guessing would lead to the -Pole of Empowerment: Rebellion.

    I woke up this morning at 6am completely out of it. I lay in my dark room and turned over to look at the time and couldn’t think of any other response other than “why?” I never wake up that early and much prefer being a night owl to being a morning person. Over the past couple days though I feel like I’m on solid footing, a kind of new internal, plateau I can launch from and look forward. I’m having to start thinking about the future again as I’ll finally graduate (if all things go well lol) this semester. I’ll then have to start looking for jobs and a way to move out. No idea how I’m going to do that, especially since I’ll have to start paying my student loans back 6 months after I graduate. How the hell do people afford to live these days? Lol

    In my dream this morning, I walked a familiar 3-mile trail that I often walk in my life. I have been sick approximately the past 12 days and kept waking up through the night with coughing and asthma. On the trail in the dream, I came close to completing the loop. I noticed a vehicle nearby with some people but we did not interact. There were birds flying around. As I came close to finishing my walk, I started to feel a bit low on energy. Then I remembered I was sick and wondered why I had gone on this walk feeling the way I do. I was concerned about being able to make it home but managed to finish the trail. The vehicle I saw earlier with the people nearby started to move and was moving alonside me as I walked down the trail. Just before the end of the trail, I noticed the vehicle rapidly accelerate past me onto a highway that was nearby. This highway is not present near the trail I normally walk in life. I believe the color of the vehicle was red. I then found myself on a new red bike. After leaving the trail, I started to bike through a nearby town. There was a sinkhole on part of the road that I was on. I navigated my bike around the wide sink hole. Then I rapidlly accelerated to 40 MPH with this bike and did so with ease until coming upon a hill that was part of a neighborhood. This was one of several possible routes I could think of to reach my home in the dream. Going up the hill was more challenging. There came a point where I climbed off the bike and walked the rest of the way up the hill. Then I came across a large door. This door seemed familiar. I remembered that past this door were a series of interconnected rooms that each had a unique puzzle which would have to be solved in order to move on to the next room. I had memories of having successfully navigated through this place at least once before but I could not remember how I did it. I kept trying to remember but the details eluded me. My first challenge was trying to remember how to open the door. As I did this, I noticed that I was surrounded by walls which were not there before. There was a woman standing near a table. I told her I could not remember how to open the door even though I remembered having navigated through this maze of rooms before. I saw a card slot near the door and found a card in my wallet that I thought of putting into this slot. However, this person standing near the table walked up to the door and fiddled with it until it opened. I did not need to use the card. I told her I needed to grab a few things before entering and that I was going to lodge something between the door to prevent it from closing. There were a variety of items including clothes on the table nearby that seemed to belong to me. Then I woke up. I thought this dream may have been related to the energy shift as there was mention of a "sense of acceleration" and I was moving at an accelerated pace during parts of the dream despite remembering being sick in waking life. There was also the vehicle which accelerated past me. I picked up on a sense of having plenty of available energy in the dream. I am curious about the door I encountered and the memories I had of having navigated through this place before. I wonder what it means. After waking up, I heard a voice that may have been of my guide who said, "It takes 11 hours to complete." I think the message may have been related to door in the dream but I do not know much more than that.

    I've been having a similar couple of days. Restless all day, nonstop checking Facebook, restless/anxious sleep, waking up too early, and then zombie-like during the day (but still anxious). Apparently you be restless AND lethargic at the same time. I've also been mildly sick for the last week.

    For me I think the Energy Boost is related to a greater focus on my Studies and Work, not really school related but personal studies on things important to me like Economic and Social Paradigm Shifts, writing my Stories, composing Music, Moving more etc. Actual School and Work stuff are not as enticing but feel more like support to my actual commitments and projects. What Ive been learning in Design class for instance is very helpful for me to organize my information. I'm waiting for a few things to come into play for me to begin researching how and where to change my job, but I dont have total control over those things atm so I've been thinking I may as well just have to jump in and start the research now. I'm not as scared about hurting the feelings of or inconveniencing my current coworkers any more by ending my current job. But I am afraid of getting into another 9 to 5 minimum wage job in which im stuck in another rut. Though yesterday after yoga I did a meditation and asked for insight around anything. What came into clarity was first related to music and opening up a new book of my life, but whoever was talking to me said that the next chapter wont commence and I won't get to where I desire if I do not change my job. Assuming it's clear and true, my Essence has also repeatedly said that I need to change my job to get out of my inertia. I tried to argue with the voice about their statements, but what they said struck me: "This job does not have to be THE job. It is just the key to opening up what's beyond your current point. It also doesn't have to be a 9 to 5 Minimum Wage Job, you have more options than that." I've just been resisting it for multiple reasons, and distrusting my inner voices because I am not a blind believer or fatalist in what I or anyone else say, but perhaps these guides are right. A job change is necessary. And it isn't the last job I will have. I wonder if there are any jobs I can get here that aren't Minimum Wage soul suckers. I was thinking they all had to be but maybe there are more options than that.

    UPDATE: As of February 19th our platform for the community is still reeling from issues that are being addressed behind the scenes almost every day. Thank you for your patience. The recent breaking of the activity feed and the broken links should be fixed now. Status Updates (that box where you can write a quick update on your wall) has had to be downgraded, so if you see anything wonky, let me know in this thread.

    If nothing else, it's worth considering what kind of food gets typically microwaved. Mostly food that is no longer at its freshest. So reheating of any kind means eating food that has been sitting around since it was cooked. Which means more bacteria, less nutrients etc. No food will be at its best when reheated, no matter what method is used. Reheated food is never the same as when freshly cooked. So even if microwave itself was harmless, learning to live without it, will inevitably lead to consuming healthier foods

    I am not a fan of microwaves because of how it can make certain foods soggy. I use microwaves occasionally to heat-up left over foods which usually consists of veggies or rice. I much prefer to cook or heat-up foods with a skillet or oven though. I remember reading the session about microwaves creating energy vortexes but have not given too much thought into it recently as I keep the microwave use to a minimum.

    My take on this is simple: The Boomers have held on to power too long, and they should get the **** off the stage and make way for someone in Gen X. Bernie's proper role is as a public intellectual, not as the President of the US. It's way past time for a changing of the guard. It's over a year to the first primaries, longer to the conventions and the election. If Michael is right, there's going to be a huge change in consciousness over that time period. I'm seeing signs of that in the small slice of the media I look at.

    [Excerpt from The Roles for Mature and Old Souls (Updated)] MATURE PRIESTS Mature Priests tend to find themselves struggling between HAVING POWER and BEING EMPOWERED. The Young Priest has discovered the value of power and control and seeks to use this at any cost to deliver compassion or to fulfill zeal. As the Young Priest evolves, so does the relationship with Power so that it is not a force for them to capture, wield, and impose, but is a force that is shared, nurtured, and invited. Mature Priests realize that Power is not unique and sacred to them in a way that must be protected, guarded, and reserved for their own ideals, but is a resource that can be brought out of others to help create a matrix of empowerment that many can use to effect and affect change. The Mature Priest must reconcile this relinquishing of individual Power for the sake of shared Empowerment. This can come as a relief to many Priests who thought they had to "do it alone," or save the world, or rescue the lives of loved ones, etc. There can also come a great resistance to this as the Mature Priest has been in control for so long, or at least thought she was. This resistance is usually met with a breakthrough when the Priest has a pivotal life where she is suddenly dependent upon the Empowerment of others for her own Power. In other words, the Priest experiences receiving the generosity and willingness of others to support a cause rather than she having to push or impose or force an ideal upon others. Eventually, reconciliation comes for the Priest when she learns that inviting and harnessing the willpower of others is more pleasantly powerful than to merely control and impose power over others as a way fulfill ideals. OLD PRIESTS The Old Priest is now all about Being Empowered. The Old Priest can no longer direct you, rescue you, save you, or push you toward what is best for you, or an ideal, or a great cause. She cannot function without your participation. Though the Old Priest may sometimes revert to the use of Power over others, it is almost vital for them to share in power, to Be Empowered, or they feel they cannot affect or effect change in any way. It is probably more devastating to the Old Priest to see and experience a lack of Empowerment in the self or in others, than to any other Role. It is physically painful for the Old Priest to watch a life or love or even the self not nurture personal power to bring about desired changes. This can sometimes trigger them to revert to old methods of using Power and come across as pushy, bossy, imposing, meddling, and manipulative. This is always a sign for the Old Priest to look at how to nurture the sharing of power rather than being the only one having power. Being the only one with power does nothing for the Old Priest. It is empty and breeds futility. The Old Priest loses almost all interest in TELLING others where they are going, or who they are, or how they are, and finds she is deeply interested in helping others to REMEMBER where they are going, remember who they are, and to remember how they got there.

    I had an epiphany just now about how Soul Ages evolve into one another. For the Infant Soul to evolve into a Baby Soul, there must be some level of DISCIPLINE. For Chaos to become Order, it must be tamed. This makes sense- this is why we're potty trained, imprinted with cultural values, take on a punishment vs reward system etc. However it goes both ways, Baby Souls can't simply tame Infant Souls- they must also tame themselves as they go through this process because there is much patience, immaturity & growing pains involved. For the Baby Soul to evolve into a Young Soul, the Ms have said there must be some form of CODEPENDENCY. At first glance the total order & the total dive into chaos between these two soul ages don't jive well- and that's why when Young Souls break the rules the Baby Souls establish there is incredible tension and conflict. As such, the Ms say the only way for Young Souls & Baby Souls to relate is for the Young Soul to be the Authority Figure the Baby Soul seeks. Through this the Young Soul can control & hold power over the Baby Soul, shaping them into whomever they wish so they can do what they want without limitations- and the Baby Soul can find security, law and order through this. It's called Codependency then because the Baby relies on the Young to feel safe- and the Young relies on the Baby being put in place, to do what they will. For the Young Soul to evolve into a Mature Soul, I was originally thinking Diversity is required but that never quite felt right. Now I realize it's CO-CREATION that's required. Both must feel they can add something to the whole or else they're at ends. And both can participate in reconciling, informing & shaping the other so that a Right Relationship is achieved. Co-creation is what we need today- we need to show how everyone's unique histories, experiences, skills and gifts can be shared to help & contribute to a better self, life and world. For the Mature Soul to evolve into an Old Soul they require a sense of INTERCONNECTION. This is the common ground between these soul ages. Mature Souls see the world as a place that must be unified under a common love for one another & Old Souls see the universe as an interconnected whole in and of itself. When the Mature Soul reaches the point of the Old Soul, it's terrifying because they've worked so hard on achieving a meaningful state of equality, intimacy and unity only to find that there's no point anymore. Life goes on forever, they're so small & meaningless, others are so small & meaningless, everything they thought was whole is now empty etc. That's why the only way this divide can heal is if the Mature Soul can CORRELATE their experiences as being a meaningful contribution to the whole & the Old Soul can CORRELATE the Mature Soul's lessons as a meaningful part of the whole human experience as well. For the Old Soul to evolve into a Transcendental Soul, I'm pretty sure they require AGAPE. They must accept everything & everyone. They must embrace the fact that they care about all parts of the whole, and the whole itself that is greater than the sum of its parts. I mean that's what the Ms say this teaching is about. This means the Old Soul must relinquish all conditions for acceptance, they must become unconditional at the very core of their being.

    OLD SOUL AGE The 7 Levels of the Old Soul Age help describe how you resolve the Essence of TRUTHS. Level 1- Budding Holism Here you begin to glimpse the universal BIGGER PICTURE and threads of truth that connect all together. Having "come so far" in life, you yearn for a sense of HOME that you know isn't found where you are- exhausted by making any sense of life's complications and reducing it all to -Simplicity. You now work on exploring & emphasizing the truth of your and everyone else's +Purpose, while tying up loose ends in your life's emotional dramas and relationship intensities. --- On Collective levels, a perpetually solution-based bigger picture is gradually introduced by the Old Soul in a way that relieves all the drama, sensitivity, tragedy and intensity of Relationship-based awareness. Humor becomes ever-more important as a powerful tool to transform perceptions & relations, and the past comes to be looked back upon in shared comical HILARITY because "if we knew then what we know now!" Level 2- Experimental Holism As you experiment with, compare and contrast this new context of living, you -Balance the truth that you desire intimacy and emotional intensity with the higher perspective you know now- working to bring +Stability to your life as you understand that everything is part of a UNIVERSAL WHOLE greater than the sum of its parts. This then becomes a source of wisdom and awe-inspiring beauty for you- as you move past any guilt over moving into a space of non-attachment to concerns that seemed so immediate+urgent. --- On Collective levels, the sentience/community works on INCLUDING BOTH the Mature Soul's dramatic immediacy to reach out in times of suffering & the Old Soul's surprisingly hilarious bigger picture- as universally valid truths about all economic, social and spiritual matters. This creates a series of realizations that the world is truly created by what one makes of it and believes it to be, and not everything "needs" to be so serious anymore. Level 3- Introspective Holism Settling into this awareness, you start to internally struggle with resolving CONFLICTING TRUTHS about life, the cosmos, you, others etc. that are scattered about and collected like isolated concepts, confusing paradoxes, inconsistencies and discrepancies in -Versatility. But as you internally own your work to comprehend and bring these various truths into cohesion, into a resource that you can use to understand yourself and the world as a whole- your holism and sense of affection grow. This foundation is +Enterprise. --- On Collective levels, the sentience/community begins to see that what has been so important all along is how EVERY EXPERIENCE has been a rich resource, and every resource has contributed a great range of evolution. People now emphasize how this reveals new truths about life, treating the path and discovery of self-actualization and self-transcendence as an art exemplifying one's unique expression of something greater. Level 4- Absolute Expression of Holism The context of life turns to accomplishment- bringing emphasis to how you -Achieve, reach and EXPRESS the next step, truth or concept you now believe/accept/know/understand to be true; building these lessons and experiences into an ever-growing bigger picture. At this stage you come to fully and without apology- embrace, model and express this wholeness of wisdom in +Consolidation- learning and choosing to be externally TRUE TO YOURSELF. --- On Collective levels, all individuals involved are fully identified with the lifestyle, habits, lessons and challenges of the HOLISTIC ECONOMY. Building upon the paradigm of Mature Soul Citizenry, Conscious Participation and Contributing, this is a time where civilization has truly mastered its energy sources+environment or reverted back to a simpler more natural lifestyle. In any way it comes about, there is a stability in place to create an economy based on holistic WISDOM & COMMUNICATION, as well as imagination, humor and opportunity for Experience. With so much gained over lifetimes and millennia- privacy, ownership and competition wane in interest and necessity. Body image issues now lose all footing; clothing becomes optional; and all resources are used+borrowed as they're available or needed for defense against actual known threats (not speculative threats of paranoia)- without any debt/exploitation and very little attachment to, expectation of or demand for "things". ~ The Old Soul Age creates True Anarchy, better seen as a form of Tribalism where there's no longer a discernible authority/leader, simply a network of autonomous people & tribal groups in cooperation and mutual understanding- wherein each can choose, ponder and share freely, learning from & communicating with one another. All resources are looked at in terms of how they can aid experience, invite wisdom and share imagination- and all people come to be seen as multi-dimensional beings who are always learning+evolving together. This awareness has built so much empathy, that it instead focuses on why it cares so much and how it can care more- and love is comprehended as being a beautiful truth that fuels every aspect of life. There is an understanding that each being exists "for their own truth/reason" you need not understand- only love- and that all of them experience life in a vastly unique+awesome way. Level 5- Unbridled Holism Expanding beyond your limits, you stretch your CAPACITY TO EMBRACE new and provocative truths as they come to the surface in any+every new experience. You start to live out the -Adventures, wackiness, distractions and stimulation these bring- to build up from that chaos into holistic and unprecedented +Expansions of wisdom and clearer understanding. --- On Collective levels, the species/community chooses to continually learn about the mysterious truths of the universe through its dynamics with other species, peoples, lifeforms etc. Superficiality, appearances and distractions in everything+everyone come to be stripped away and all is seen in its truth, core and ESSENCE. So there is a tendency here to indulge in the more wacky, crazy and absolutely absurd truths of life and spiritual connectedness that were hard to grasp before. Level 6- Karmic Holism You come to terms with the threads and -Connections of truth in your life and the world, generating profound AFFECTION+ACCEPTANCE for yourself and others as you tie up the last loose ends of terror over paradoxical or convoluted+complicated truths that created karmic scenarios within or with others. This time is busy and intense, but fulfilling, as you come to realize a +Harmony of TRUTH interwoven through all experiences of suffering, grief and devastation- as well as kindness, surrender and resolution. --- On Collective levels, the sentience dives deep into whatever still-lingering and unprocessed wounds, traumas, intensities, interference & imbalances they have around the truth of anything and everything- REVISITING ancient memories stored in the collective unconscious. All exchanges and choices are now seen as collective invitations, rather than entangling impositions- and the species chooses to invariably nurture their planet and all its lifeforms around with profound care. Level 7- Exemplified Holism This is a time to look at all -Eclectic/Inconsistent truths in your life & all preconceived ideas of who you are (set by you or others)- discerning whether what you believe is derived from a place of wisdom that truly knows, or from a place of specialness, convenience, comfort or lack of integrity. As you repeatedly +Inculcate your truths, you begin take responsibility over your life for modeling, healing and teaching to others the truth and wisdom of SELF-LOVE that you've gained+remembered. You simply trust now in where you and others are going, "let everything go" to gleefully surrender to the bliss of life, and ENJOY living it in any way you desire- free of all the pressures that dramatic/painful overthinking, over-feeling and overreaction once brought. --- On Collective levels, the sentience/community learns how to truly master and understand all aspects involved in knowing the truth of their part in the bigger picture. Particularly the RESPONSIBILITY involved in CARING. Life returns to an eden-like state where the species fully and without exclusion, allows for life to be life. This sentience lives their true agape and unconditional compassion for all parts within and beings around.

    Yeah, memes... I find it interesting how the world is, thanks to technology, now also united in humour. Or by humour, well, sometimes at least. Sometimes i get zero likes on funny stuff in share on FB, and i only share quite selectively I thought this was pretty hilarious, but only one other thought so (@AnnaD ) My own dumb funny thought (and maybe a bit sad) thought of the day just occurred a moment ago. I was thinking about people and their task companions, and that perhaps i should ask Michael about my husband's task companion, maybe a connection to his task companion could help him find a path. Then i realised, hold on, he's mine so, I am it. D'oh. Shit

    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.

    I've been polishing the rad descriptions I have for the Soul Age Levels and have decided to post them now. I decided to delete the other topic discussion I made with the shorter descriptions and leave this one with more intricate summaries for both an individual manifesting each level, and a collective manifesting each level. These are all my interpretations however, but they're based on as much info I can find for each level. Each Soul Age will be its own post here so you can just scroll down to find it. :) I hope it's helpful for everyone! Remember that you can manifest a wide range of ages and levels so have fun looking at each of these and see how and where you've used them in the past and present. They're good measuring sticks for how you use your range of wisdom. :)

    Me, three. I can't recall the last time I had a full night's sleep. Six months ago...? The kind of sleep where you don't wake up every hour or two, and where you are not constantly drifting into and out of dreams which all blur in your half-awake mind and you can't remember what it feels like to completely black out, rest, in a trusting way, to not be aware of yourself and your thoughts and feelings all the F***ing time. So now, for the first time in my life I actually got a prescription for sleeping pills, I use them sparingly and they do help somewhat. This is all so weird for me because I have always enjoyed sleeping and now I'm between two extremes: I either can't fall asleep for hours or when I finally fall asleep, I can't bring myself to wake up. Also had a bad sinus infection that needed antibiotics and now I can't tell if the pressure I feel at the nape of my neck is from the antidepressants, the remnant of that sinus thing or some global energy thing I can't make sense of or sense clearly. Argh! I'm so tired! Yesterday morning it turned out I had completely forgotten about a big work project, so now I'm hurriedly catching up on that. I nearly fainted when I realized I had *forgotten* something work related! So unlike me. Then I realized I have been so tired it would be OK to faint -- if I can't sleep, at least then I could get a moment of complete rest. Now that's depressing...

    @Nadine, I am so relieved that you have experienced people with running mouth problems too. It is like being seen shitting your pants in public and not being anywhere secluded. Privacy is just a fucking illusion anyway and denial of everyone's connection to everyone else. Also, everyone has an opinion and relative sensitivities to asking certain things in public or asking things of someone privately. I feel for you that was awkward. I see you... (argh!) let it go quiet and I hope that it quietens down and with everyone knowing at least there is no secrets, if no secrets is some advantage? lol

    From this month's Energy Report: 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. I reposted that portion of the Energy Report because perhaps it is related in some way to a dream I had last night. I really find the use of the word "acceleration" in that quote sort of funny based upon the dream that I had right before waking. In this dream, I woke up from the dream with the name "Railcon Highway" stuck in my memory. I tried googling the whole thing but so far have only come up with "Railcon" actually being a thing. The dream seemed to be about a high speed (there's the acceleration) rail "highway" of sorts running through the northwest of the US. This rail highway was well known for trains running at higher speeds even when loaded with cargo. Because of the frequent usage and heavy loads, the tracks were very bumpy and jarring. There seemed to be a part well to the east of the main area where perhaps I owned a smaller area of track? I just remember to the west of that is where it became a very bumpy and jarring ride. I find this dream interesting because I have no known interest in trains or rail lines so am not quite sure where all of this is coming from other than a rather creative way to play out the "sense of acceleration" mentioned in the Energy Report Energy Shift. As a sort of funny synchronicity, on the MSNBC Morning Joe program, Harriet Tubman was just mentioned as being part of the Underground railroad just as I had submitted the above Another after the fact thought about this whole "railroad" theme in this dream.... 2 Sundays ago, Marty's dad passed away. His career was in the railroad industry. And HOLY SHIT, Marty just relayed to me the railroad name his dad worked for was ConRail And there it is, ConRail Highway.

    On second thought, maybe my imagination has taken on a more optimistic nature over the last few years... I used to feel very "stuck" at work, but I could not imagine a job that would suit me better. Similarly, I could not imagine a time when I would be financially capable of living in anything bigger than a one room apartment. A few years ago, I finally started thinking 'creatively' and quit my soul-sucking job, moved to northern CA to live in my grandfather's old house in the country, and started a new career. My life isn't perfect, I'm still fine-tuning my vision, but it is moving in the right direction! I had been crediting movement through the 4th IM, but maybe eschewing microwaves contributed to a more optimistic imagination on my part.

    Diane (my sister) pointed me towards a Book Review written by Bill Gates... "I couldn’t put down this thriller with a tragic ending." The new book is on Elizabeth Holmes and her Theranos debacle written in a Thriller format. Bill Gates Review on Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup Here's an excerpt from the Review: Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou details the rise and fall of Theranos. If you aren’t familiar with the Theranos story, here’s the short version: the company promised to quickly give you a complete picture of your health using only a small amount of blood. Elizabeth Holmes founded it when she was just 19 years old, and both she and Theranos quickly became the darlings of Silicon Valley. She gave massively popular TED talks and appeared on the covers of Forbes and Fortune. By 2013, Theranos was valued at nearly $10 billion and even partnered with Walgreens to put their blood tests in stores around the country. The problem? Their technology never worked. It never came close to working. But Holmes was so good at selling her vision that she wasn’t stopped until after real patients were using the company’s “tests” to make decisions about their health. She and her former business partner are now facing potential jail time on fraud charges, and Theranos officially shut down in August. The public didn’t know about Theranos’ deception until Carreyrou broke the story as a reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Because he was so integral to the company’s demise, Bad Blood offers a remarkable inside look.

    Looking at Geraldine's timeline of human history/evolution for the rest now: Infant 1 was clearly at around 6 million y.a, and Infant 3 is shown to be clearly the norm around 4 million years ago. So it's safe to say Infant 2 was at 5 million years ago. XD took us millions of years to move from one level to the next- compared to all the young soul explosion we did in 2 millennia. Damn. Infant 4 is likely around 4-3 million years ago, as it seems during that period the "non-sirian" humans were fairly comfortable in how they survived in the world. Infant 5 then fits in with the 2nd intervention that allowed us to walk upright 3 million y.a. This makes sense, as it truly expands and stretches our experience of survival, especially with how we cross-bred with non-human species. It seems that 2 million y.a, we had our 2nd IS Khro'te of the bigfoot caretaker species- so I think this is a fair time to shift to Infant 6. Somewhere between 2-1.5 Million y.a. probably held the shift into Infant 7 as well. As the events after that date indicate more focus on order and structure than pure freedom of everything. --- The 3rd Invention in our Diet around 1.5 million y.a. gave us a push toward nomadism and exploration as creativity- so I think this is fair entry for Baby 1, as we developed a sense of carrying home with us that brought structure to chaos. The process of establishing coastal cities after that realization was probably when we shifted to Baby 2. Then by 1 million y.a., when we established our supposed Coastal Network Civilization- this would've been an optimal time for Baby 3. I mean what's better for this level than to have a huge, Versatile city be our shared Enterprise? So that brings us to around 750 000-300 000 y.a as a good entry for Baby 4- as the text written states that time was a baby-soul dominant one. This goes hand in hand with our increased creativity, intellectual/expressive centering and understanding+organizing of music+math at the time from the 4th Intervention and 4th+5th IS. Which again, sounds like a good time to practice Achievement and Consolidation of Order. And it's also an opportune time for various lines of our sentience to evolve through the soul ages at their own pace. As it seems that's what Lemuria, Atlantis and probably various groups of souls+communities did. However, it may just be true that the shift from Baby 7 to Young 1 in 0 AD was simply because that was where we already were when the meteor crashed, and we finally caught up to that collective level when Jesus came around. If that was the case, then we may not have been at Baby 5, but Baby 6 or Baby 7 instead, and my analysis may be incorrect. Dunno. But I can see the 4th/5th IS as a shift to Baby 5; and the 5th intervention for increasing cranial capacity+6th/7th IS as ushering a shift to Baby 6- due to how much suffering+difficulty there seems to be during that time. Human History is so messy XD

    MATURE SOUL AGE The 7 Levels of the Mature Soul Age help describe how you grow your Capacity for LOVING. Level 1- Budding Sensitivity This is the first time you glimpse that your relationships aren't just external things or status symbols, but people thatreflect deeper aspects about you- and that living compassionately and empathetically has more strengths than you'd thought. An uneasy struggle emerges with contemplating and exploring the -Simplicity and +Purpose of these new INNER PERCEPTIONS, but you retain comfort with seeking external achievements and sustaining your individuality. --- On Collective levels, the concept of rights and their exploitation- and the DISSOLVING of BOUNDARIES to reach out to minorities & create a smaller, more intimate multicultural world begins. The addiction to weaponry breaks down as war is no longer seen as a viable option to solve differences- while tangible solutions to global crises are put into motion as the species/community becomes consciously aware of a COMMON THREAT to resolve that is either used to further divide or unify people. Level 2- Experimental Sensitivity As your understanding of the feelings of others grows, you try living more harmoniously within your relationships- but you're not quite comfortable with MESSY EMPATHY and struggle in RECONCILING your stronger drive in the outer world with your more fragile+sensitive inner mind and heart. So it always seems the two extremes conflict with one another- leaving you torn between wants/needs. As such, you keenly learn how to -Balance your drive to have+achieve with your desire to better love+perceive to come to a place of +Stability in who/how you choose to love. --- On Collective levels, the hierarchical system of government+workforce rooted in competition, defense and privacy is replaced with a CIRCULAR DYNAMIC designed for all individuals, responsibilities and rights to be on equal ground through collective trust, networks of support and shared education. Here the Mature Soul balances misunderstandings+conflicts by providing a world where both allowing chaos from life (and Infant+Young Souls)- and nurturing order (and Baby Souls) are ACCOMMODATED & EMBRACED for their legitimate perspectives and experiences- but not pushed to extremes or limitations. Level 3- Introspective Sensitivity Now you come to fully embrace EMOTIONAL INTIMACY as a path toward loving. But you're challenged by feeling effective+inclusive in how you understand and/or implement the -Versatile range of values and practices you/others believe to be loving ways of living; easily falling into bouts of inner angst and drama over the challenges and fears you face in empathizing. So you seek to both work on+own your relationships within and around, as part of your efforts to build a foundation- an +Enterprise- that represents and strengthens your capacity to love. --- On Collective levels, the species/community immerses into their collective inner world of ideals, values, practices etc. in a struggle to discover what kind of shared world and relationships they wish to effectively work toward. A DEEPENING STRENGTH is found in all institutions and enterprises built upon love+empathy- and the task of weaving together all differences between everyone into cohesion is taken on. Level 4- Absolute Expression of Sensitivity At this point, you're fully confident about living as this awareness- identifying yourself readily in others as a way to learn how you can love more of them+yourself. You -Achieve greater interpersonal and intrapersonal growth then, by working through your projections, compromises and feelings of indignation. Over time, the parts & pieces in you that have grown to love more +Consolidate, and you reach out to everyone by expressing and sharing your lessons+values- responding to any plights within or around with empathy, compassion and sensitivity toward rights, relief and healing. --- On Collective levels, all individuals involved are fully identified with the lifestyle, habits, lessons and challenges of the Resource-based RELATIONSHIP ECONOMY. Building upon the paradigm of Young Soul Consumerism, Competition and Collecting- this is a time where diversity becomes the foundation of everything from community, entertainment and politics, to spirituality and marketing. It's a time of multicultural groups living within a Resource-Based Economy that is built upon CITIZENRY, Rights and Well-Being- where all goods+resources come to be available without debt, capital, servitude etc. Product and Distribution become far more local+accessible, and are only manufactured as needed- both with the resources available, and with great sensitivity to the environment around. Each and every individual listens to the wants, needs & boundaries of each and every group and person to come to collective decisions on how to move forward without causing harm; while allowing for everyone to Contribute to and actively, Consciously Participate in that community/relationship in their own way so long as it benefits. What matters now is the aim to contribute in ways that are valuable & meaningful- such as through philanthropy, charity, mutual benefit, sharing, activism, homogenization, global government and "one world". This resource-based transition usually begins with pressure to conform because the aim is to benefit each other, but this gradually shifts towards fully discussing changes with, setting clear parameters over, and offering opportunities for any Infant, Baby and Young so that all may feel included. ~ Life tends to be run Democratically, with more accessible, interactive and ever-evolving governments that are less concerned with majorities, and more so with varying groups within groups. Monarchies aimed to support the well-being of the people can arise as well. Each person contributes according to their strengths, but learn from one another via Empathy to develop in other areas of life. Authority is only seen as a part of the whole unit, not the defining force of a movement or industry- being drawn upon from those willing as needed. All resources are looked at in terms of how they can include, be shared and help others- and all people tend to be identified as multi-faceted, three-dimensional beings living just-as-valid lives as you do. This awareness builds empathy through regularly imagining and perceiving themselves in other's shoes. And love is anything you genuinely appreciate in/from you, others or events; with an allowance for others to have their own definitions of what is+isn't love, for all experiences to become adventures in self-understanding and self-love, and all people to be truly forgiven as people. Level 5- Unbridled Sensitivity As you grow your love for everything, you begin to stretch the limits of your empathy and push yourself beyond your boundaries and comfort zones- into many frustrating, disruptive and stimulating -Adventures in experiences or rampant relationships inside+out. With so much new data to process then, this causes a lot of friction to result- prompting exciting and provocative transformations in who you are, how you love and how far you see beyond yourself: bringing great +Expansion. --- On Collective levels, the species/community indulges in all the crazy or eccentric relationships+perceptions that they've overlooked. An urge to consciously adventure out into the world within+around and share a RIGHT-RELATIONSHIP with all sorts of unfamiliar lifestyles, philosophies and people develops. The concept of holding all-too strong opinions is realized to be counter to accepting diversity, so collective beliefs on everything are allowed from all angles. Social structures become quite fluid, and the arts and philosophy become mediums for soul-searching and self-examination. Level 6- Karmic Sensitivity This is an intense stage wherein you process the -Connections between past experiences and traumas where boundaries were crossed by you and others. So you come to terms with your resulting IDENTITY and range of SELF-LOVE from those experiences, and choose how you wish to move forward in compassionate +Harmony with your relationships. --- On Collective levels, the species/community directly accesses and processes all karmic imbalances, intensities and interference that have ever affected their capacity to love. This is a time in which the greatest fears and loves of the species/community are uncovered and entirely EMBRACED and TRANSFORMED NOW. A sense of responsibility is assumed for resolving- rather than hiding, tolerating, denying etc.- all boundaries that ever divided people with great empathy. Level 7- Exemplified Sensitivity As this awareness culminates, you begin to assess any ways in which your love has been -Eclectic- where you've used your indignation+capacity to love to differentiate yourself from others, or any times you've exchanged and adapted your values to the point you lost sight of what love was. Working through all that is false love means you begin to +Inculcate all the wisdom you've learned, inspiring a sense of INTERCONNECTION, GUIDANCE and EVOLUTION by exemplifying to yourself+others through your lifestyle- what active love, empathy and compassion are. --- On collective levels, there is a shared awareness of the love and humanitarianism that creates the world, and people begin to discover untapped spiritual+psychic gifts arising from within- that they may consciously realize to better the lives of each other and their world. In addition, the fear of species extinction lessens now, and reproduction is no longer seen as a priority. The species/community learns how to truly master and understand all aspects involved in their growth through relationships. Particularly the RESPONSIBILITY involved in LOVING.

    YOUNG SOUL AGE The 7 Levels of the Young Soul Age help describe how you learn about the Dynamics of ENERGY. Level 1- Budding Individuality At this stage, you glimpse the -Simplicity of living beyond the confines of your social order, realizing YOU have the power to CHOOSE INDEPENDENTLY- so this becomes a new +Purpose to ponder and explore. However, this remains observational, as you’re still fearful of expanding beyond tradition, authority and social stigmas. --- On Collective levels, the species and its peoples shift into establishing a sense of collective identity and individuality for themselves, REBELLING against their traditions in an almost "chest-beating" fashion. Several INTERNAL CONFLICTS can arise between the Baby and Young Souls now- over needs, demands, resources and issues of self-identity. Level 2- Experimental Individuality A greater desire to be individualistic grows, as you -Balance the safety+security that “other me’s” bring- and your desire to rebel against the newly-determined “not me’s” that pose a threat to, and have greater POWER & SELF-EXPRESSION than you. Eventually, a sense of +Stability is founded when you realize these worlds are not mutually exclusive and you come to terms with wanting to progress not stagnate your evolution. --- On Collective levels, the species/group works to resolve misunderstandings and conflicts; keeping at a precarious balance between the Young Souls who wish to FORGE AHEAD, collect, compete, express, oppress and exploit- and the Baby Souls who wish to apply patience, empathy and compassion through CIVILITY & AUTHORITY. This can bring about greater war and conflict; or create a cycle of CO-DEPENDENCE where the Baby Souls flock to the Young who create+defend safety and structure- while the Young Souls rule, control, direct and exploit the Baby Souls by being their central authority, to profit from their chaos+uncertainty. Level 3- Introspective Individuality Now you come to own being COMPETITIVE or DRIVEN by wanting to have status, fortune and achieve your bigger dreams and accomplishments. But in -Versatility, you feel your ideas of you are being challenged and that you must confront the source of that with great courage to build your desired +Enterprise. --- On Collective levels, groups fully become nations that identify as separate communities with their own self-serving agendas and identities, existing harmoniously or competitively with each other. These nations PRACTICE EXERTINGtheir power, strength and extent of control, to come-to-terms with owning this new awareness. Level 4- Absolute Expression of Individuality You are now fully SELF-ORIENTED, and everything is seen in terms of how it SERVES YOU to -Achieve. As your sense of wanting, longing and craving to have what you want is fulfilled, you move this world of pure self-expression, individualism and self-satisfaction into +Consolidation. Your careers, media, possessions and interests all become voices+forms of status for expressing who you are to the world. --- On Collective levels, all individuals involved are fully identified with the lifestyle, habits, lessons and challenges of the INDIVIDUALIST ECONOMY. Building upon the paradigm of Baby Soul Structured Order, Authority and Civilizing- the idea+use of Capital develops, and life becomes a matter of politics, having & material acquisition. CONSUMERISM and Collecting through hard work, exploitation, entitlement, investment & inheritance become status quo- while tangibility, being special and making your mark on the world are the name of the game. This paradigm contains an inherent imbalance as each person tries to take and earn as much as possible- leading to poverty, racism, slavery, theft and violence- or meaning, motivation, satisfaction, craving and longing. As such, this is a time for seeking personal gain, prosperity, abundance, fame, power, status etc. or it can be about how one can express+sustain their individuality without compromise to harmony. Industries here will simply continue to produce products, people & standards that are heavily marketed and unquestionably purchased or bought into for being popular, romanticized and glamorized. There is also a heavy emphasis on maintaining one's culture, heritage, history and tradition in high esteem. ~ The two most common forms of government here are Hierarchical and Harmonious. Hierarchical can be seen in forms of Capitalism; where Individual Progression, individualism, social classes, competition, uneven equality, privacy+private resources, privilege, convenience etc. permeate. The Motto would be: "From each according to his industry, to each according to his earning." Harmonious can be seen in forms of Socialism or Communism; where Communal Progression, nationalism, shared equality+resources, a status quo of living that is adhered within etc. permeate. The Motto would be: "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs." Many Monarchies of blood or alliance aiming to retain/seize/progress power will arise as well. All resources are looked at in terms of how they can protect, defend, collect achievements and be withheld- and all people tend to be identified by a mostly-static set of two-dimensional traits, tropes and talents. This awareness builds empathy mostly through direct experience, especially "you get what you give" scenarios- and love is a reciprocal circuit of giving and receiving attractive and repulsive experiences with people, events and parts of self; which you continue exploring because there's something gained in doing so. Level 5- Unbridled Individuality It's time to PUSH THE BOUNDARIES of power, fortune, accomplishment etc. to have more than what you want- and be more than what you could ever envision of yourself. You now expand your energy and move through ridiculously pushy and disruptive -Adventures of indulgent stimulation or aggrandized self-importance- which help to +Expand yourself toward new accomplishments, strengths and personal pleasures in charismatic and exciting ways. --- On Collective levels, whatever it was that became part of the limitations, boundaries & collective lifestyle instilled by past generations now seems regressive at-worst or stagnant at-best. The species/nation/group breaks the mold by SEEKING new experiences, new competition, greater desires, higher visions etc. This can range from more materialistic, territorial or philosophical expansions that assert social accomplishment. Level 6- Karmic Individuality This is a messy+exhausting but rewarding stage in which you repay KARMIC DEBTS. Here you begin to explore -Connections between relationships, memories and past experiences that revolve around your personal failures, losses, strengths and successes- thus creating intense conflicts within+around that force you to process your hampered creativity, suffering, grief and repressed strength. You begin to work hard towards your investments+ambitions to build +Harmony, and in doing so learn how to share, create and experience TRUE PERSONAL POWER. --- On Collective levels, the species/nation/group confronts the reality of creating or contributing to KARMA. So they can be "bit in the butt" with having to ethically manage resources to alleviate past mistakes, issues and injustices; as well as tie-up loose ends that left intense, interfering or imbalanced scenarios within their environment and with other peoples- building greater harmony between all as a way to create TRUE COMMUNITY. If this is not handled though, they may simply create more cycles of strife, oppression, exploitation etc. until they do. Level 7- Exemplified Individuality As you wrap up the awareness of individualism & competitive consumerism, you learn about how to truly teach, exemplify and realize MATERIAL AMBITION, INDIVIDUALITY & ACQUISITION. At first, this is -Eclectically learned and taught based from notions of superiority/inferiority, complacent disconnection or lack of consideration- but with more experience, you come to +Inculcate in you and others, how to live for oneself from a place of responsible, empowered and empowering wisdom and authority. --- On Collective levels, the species/nation/group learns how to truly master and understand all aspects involved in asserting their individuality and courageous pursuit of achievement. Particularly the RESPONSIBILITY involved in the impact of their EXPRESSION.

    INFANT SOUL AGE The 7 Levels of the Infant Soul Age help describe how you learn to DO to LIVE. Level 1- Budding Survival This is when SENTIENCE emerges from the world around it. Personality is very primitive and chaotic here, but innocently curious- just born into a world of possibilities. Life is relatively +Simple, as you gradually move toward learning the +Purpose of surviving. --- On Collective levels, newly sentient individuals AWAKEN & DISSOCIATE from their animal hive-mind brethren to seek feelings of home in other sentient individuals & species around them. This is an incredibly chaotic time, due to the sudden launch into figuring out how to keep the body alive- but the chaos can be organized and tamed by other more advanced sentience if they're present in this awakening. Level 2- Experimental Survival Now you experiment within the world, drawn to discover more and gain a sense of SECURITY through touch. You -Balance the intuitive resonance you have with the planet+life around you & your new awareness of being separate from all that- learning to gain +Stability as you expand into unfamiliarity. --- On Collective levels, the constant balancing between living and dying and the physical fears involved as you seek sources of security continue. The species/tribe finds RESOLUTION in learning how to live by constantly assessing environmental threats, communicating with each other through primal variations of language or telepathy, and developing an intimate communion with nature and spiritual energies. Level 3- Introspective Survival This is the first time you realize you can influence the world through your ACTIONS. In -Versatility, you confront a range of threatening challenges to your continued survival- learning to realize what fuels you to avoid pain and seek stimulation, while creating/discovering tools+resources that can aid your life through +Enterprise. --- On Collective levels, the DENSITY of physical reality increases now- so life feels even more "real". The species/tribe grows accustomed to their reality and associates with the fact of being separate bodies in a vast world of challenges. A sense of the daily and nightly cycles in the sky, climate and environment develops as a dependable clock to map time. Level 4- Absolute Expression of Survival Now you fully express and expose your perceptions as a survivor. As you -Achieve and accomplish experiences that secure your survival- a simple, tribal mindset that says "I/We EITHER live or I/We die." +Consolidates. This is the first true, instinctive realization that you have a choice in what you do with your body. --- On Collective levels, all individuals involved are fully identified with the lifestyle, habits, lessons and challenges of the SURVIVAL ECONOMY. This is a time of primal survival urges that fuel tribes+groups to SECURE food, water, procreation, pleasure, shelter, nurturing etc., while exploring their intimacy with The UNKNOWN, Nature, the Cycles of the Planet+Sky and its Inhabitants/Life Forms. The Infant Soul lives naturally through Freedom; there are very few rules other than the natural laws of physics. They are simple and unaware of society in general, though can be smart in "getting by"- knowing the basics of common sense and decency in their environment. All resources are looked at in terms of how they can be used, eaten, touched etc. or not- and all people tend to be seen as different bodies that are not you, but exist in the same place+time that you do. This awareness builds empathy mostly through classical conditioning from relying on their body's feelings to signal whether or not to trust the other- and love is known to be whatever person/part of you nurtures you, others or events with unquestioned obligation and duty. Level 5- Unbridled Survival At some point, you feel an urge to follow your greater IMPULSES and -Adventure out into the world to explore beyond your boundaries- drawn towards bizarre, primal urges, compulsions and interests that help to +Expand your range of personal experience. --- On Collective levels, there is now a drastic explosion into unexplored territories of life that invoke new compulsions, impulses, STIMULI and more adventurous experiences for the species/tribe as well. Level 6- Karmic Survival As your boundaries expand, you begin to conflict with painful experiences that have been inflicted on you by life or others- so now you REFLECT on all you've lived through to DEFINE deeper concepts that always remained untouched in the background: such as self, wants, needs, life and death. -Connections form between your memories, and you grow acutely aware of the impact death, conflict and suffering has- growing a greater appreciation for the simple +Harmony found in living, healing and thriving. --- On Collective levels, this previous explosion creates a drastic shift in the mindset of the species/tribe, gravitating towards a profound realization that one has a lifetime and has an impact on/is impacted by others lives too. This is the first realization of JUSTICE and KARMA in terms of how intensity, interference & imbalances in one's choices can be created and/or remedied by the effect of other's choices on you. Level 7- Exemplified Survival At this point, your gained understanding & survival skills remain -Eclectic, dispersed, unintegrated and only differentiate you from others. So now you must learn how to model, teach and +Inculcate your skills in yourself and others- to truly know and exemplify how to best survive alone and together. Perhaps as one who provides and/or understands the inherent value of mutual CARE and shared SANCTUARY. --- On Collective levels, the species/tribe learns how to truly master and understand all aspects involved in their survival. Particularly the RESPONSIBILITY involved in RELIANCE and SELF-RELIANCE. The tribe now finds lands and builds tools that increase stability; creating structures where the species may live in stabler bodies receiving greater freedom in diet, rest, medical care, education etc.
