    This came through my feed from the Monroe Institute this morning: TMI Copper Wall Research. The article states: "It was a design originally used by Tibetan monks as an aid in developing what they called 'lucidity.' Researchers at the Menninger Institute extended the concept to engage in the study of electric fields generated by the human body and found that energy healers were producing quite large electric fields, too large to be explained by currently accepted physiological mechanisms." The Monroe Institute follows Bob Monroe's ideal that psychic and metaphysical phenomena should be validated and investigated where possible using scientific methods. The article says those in meditation can sometimes generate these fields as well. I know that in some classes they put participants into labs and connect them to various measuring devices during the class exercises. I have one of those classes on my bucket list because I'm really curious about it.

    Mmm delicious. This year has been all about anger for me. For a long time I thought growth meant releasing the anger , becoming peaceful inside. I now see it differently. Anger shows us our values. Anger shows us what really matters to us and it also shows us how we expect others to comply to those values or how we are ignoring these values altogether as a very important part of ourselves. Anger shows us what is important to us. It also shows us where we have yet to set boundaries with others or where we have crossed far beyond the boundaries of what we have control of. When living with others, I would often pick just anybody with the mildest of connections. I would tell myself “ I will mind my own business and heal whatever wound comes up...my anger is my business and I’ll use the anger to traaansceend”. So they would cook bacon or something in the kitchen and I would watch how angry it would get me and I would go to my room and breathe...telling myself to use the opportunity to own myself and stay out of their business”. SO COMPlICATED and UNNECESSARY! the anger just rose and rose and rose until finally I am at a place now where I acknowledge anger is here to inform us what is important to us. It is not here to transcend. We can use it as information to put our power towards situations, relationships, contexts that matter to us. Michael said that anger came when we felt our rights were being violated and it diminishes in intensity when we realize that in 99 percent of situations, we are violating our own rights while giving the other the power/ permission to determine how we feel/ think/ do/ evolve/ learn. I think true anger just looks like a responsibility to yourself to be living in your own authenticity and no longer holding others responsible for you living in your own authenticity.

    I watched The National's new song Oblivions on The Tonight Show last night and loved it. It's been a while since I got lost in a song -- the way it builds. It felt transcendent. It made me seek out more. That's when I found their new short film/album: I Am Easy To Find. It's almost like you're not afraid of anything I do How I want you here You don't know what it's like to be around you I still got my fear It's the way you say yes when I ask you to marry me You don't know what you are doing Do you think you can carry me Over the threshold Over and over again until oblivion? It's the way that you're gonna stop needing to tell me You want me as much as I want you to tell me I'm over the threshold Everything is gonna be totally okay until oblivion I still got my fear I still got my fear It's still always you every morning I think of no matter what How I want you here I know I am easy to find but you know, it's never me I still got my fears It's like a tide in a city lifts me and carries me around And oh, my mind is made up out of nothing, now If nothing scares you about me and you, never put me down Oh my mind is made up out of nothing, now You won't walk away, won't you? You don't walk away, don't you? You won't walk away, won't you? You don't walk away, don't you? I still got my fear I still got my fear I still got my fear I still got my fear This short film is a brief view of life... with a haunting soundtrack. It's poignant and sweet, distancing and watchful, and a wee bit neutral in some ways, as love is wont to be. It shows how much we capture, and how much we miss at times, as we roll through. Article on NPR: The National Premieres 5 New Songs With Stirring Short Film, 'I Am Easy To Find' Upon the announcement of The National's I Am Easy to Find — due out this Friday on 4AD — the band promised a short film that would accompany the record, starring Alicia Vikander and directed by Mike Mills (who directed the 2010s movies Beginners and 20th Century Women). The short film is here, accompanied by reworked versions of five new singles: "Quiet Light," "Rylan," "The Pull of You," "Oblivions" and the album's title track, in addition to the already-released "Light Years." I Am Easy to Find carries some of the emotional resonance of a Richard Linklater film — think Boyhood or the Before trilogy — condensed into a tight 24 minutes. It finds Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in all the stages of a middle-class existence, from birth to death, and briefly delving into each stage — as if watching a supercut of home movies. Rather than pinpoint the emotional heft of a single big life event, I Am Easy to Find takes a sprawling glance at life's totality, each subtitled and carried by Vikander's expressions. There's an emphasis on the cyclical nature of life: the temporality of close friendships (of which she has four), the turmoils of marriage ("Arguing ... about the same things," the film warns), financial crises and the remembrance of the past. The National is well-suited to soundtrack these weighty dramas in brief. Sometimes, it plays as mere background music and other times, it accentuates and amplifies Vikander's joys and woes. It's engrossing, lovely and at times droll, as a short film from the National should be.

    Tex would be interested in this and I'll show it to him. He has played around with copper for years because one day he noticed that copper reflects chi/energy. When his back used to go out, he made a copper shirt by gluing copper foil to the inside of one of his work shirts. He would wear this while working, and it would keep his back from going out. Eventually this became just a piece of copper strip with magnets attached that he would tape to his back if it went out. He's got a story about the copper shirt that he always tells, but I'll let him tell it. The "theory" behind this is that energy leaves the body at certain spots that are "stuck" (he can feel this with his hands), and putting copper on that spot reflects the energy back into the body. This can tend to bring back the emotions that the person was avoiding which caused the energy to leave the body in the first place.

    Hey, I'd love to read some sessions on Anger, how to confront and release it, and what it is specifically. Apparently as I move through this phase of my 4th IM I am starting to realize how FUCKING MAD I really am about so many things. Any personal work with anger would be lovely to hear as well! What works for you guys? I just lost my shit and punched my pillows for a little bit and feel somewhat better LOL.

    @Stickyflames Oh man, thank you for this. I've been intuiting about it today myself which is why I even asked and I arrived to a very similar initial conclusion. I think I'm confronting that so much of my anger is an extension of suppression. Either being suppressed by others or suppressing myself for the sake of others so that I could not only "keep the peace" but "be liked". Pre-4IM Ree was very much so a concocted persona, a carefully constructed performance of charisma and niceness and humor as I desperately tried for likability in every single social situation. Now I'm realizing that I don't owe it to FUCKING ANYBODY to be likable all the time. I don't have to be open and receptive, and willing to drop whatever I'm doing and/or feeling in order to be "on" for people. Not even my friends. Not even my family. If I'm having a bad day, fuck off leave me alone. If you do something I don't like, I'm gonna trust that I can tell you that I'm upset and if you stop loving me because of it, also fuck off leave me alone. The anger is just coming up as this sort of righteous indignation, and exactly what you said, the realization that I have violated some of my Rights (as well has had them violated by growing up in an abusive household), and I'm just now starting to feel it. There's a lot to be mad about in the world. People are shitty, even people I love are sometimes shitty. It's okay if I'm shitty sometimes. I don't have to just take it. I can stand up for myself. I can enact boundaries. And I can be a bitch if I'm in a bad mood. All the people I love through their bad moods and shitty decisions and atrocious defective ass chief features. Why can't I allow myself to be me and do the same?

    Ok so my next big task for myself was to look at actual historical events and see what happened in our world during each nexus period. After all, Michael can only give concepts, not predict events. In doing so, I would more accurately understand what specifically happened to lead us to current trends, and what could've happened differently in other Parallels. So I finally got to doing that! I did a lot of research across multiple sites to see what happened since the beginning of 2016 until now. Then I highlighted which events I felt/thought most reflected Michael's description of each Nexus, and that I remember hit the world like wildfire. This is quite long so take your time reading, if you'd like. One side effect of reading this summary is that you will gain a broader understanding of every other human we share Earth with (maybe even a sense of Unity with them), and likely you will have more empathy from seeing what we humans do (positively or negatively) to/for/with each other. 2016: YEAR OF TURNING POINTS- Moving centered Server Year based in common ground and problem-solving through Caution SIGNIFICANT EVENTS: US Presidential Election w/ Donald Trump Win & Russian Collusion, Brexit Referendum, Zika Epidemic and UN Declaration of its End, US President Obama visits Cuba (a 1st in many decades), Threat of ISIS in Brussels/Iraq/Pakistan, Orlando;

    I'm looking forward to checking this out. Funny this band has been coming up in my shuffle in the car almost daily lately and more often than not they get a replay and volume raised!

    I’m actually finding their new album kind of meh. I also am not sure how I feel about them having so many guest singers. It’s funny tho because this album isn’t *that* different from their previous albums. Could be that by now i’m beginning to become bored with their sound. Still, I like the lead singer’s voice. I find it soothing, and I would like to see them live. Now that I know how to get to the stadium where they tend to play while they are here by subway I probably will try to see them next time they are there, assuming they don’t sell out before I can get a ticket.

    After his dance of joy and freedom turns to a bloodbath by a mass shooter and then after his beating on the street that leaves his family fighting and forgetting him... comes the most painful part for me: the drowning out of our existence by the arguing and fighting among others over whether we have a right to exist at all. That punches me in the gut as I watch his face because that's exactly how you have to navigate it all. You just have to look straight ahead and stay strong. This isn't unique to the LGBTQIA+ community. So many from marginalized groups know this feeling.

    I never addressed this issue with MIchael so I do not know what they would say but I will tell you about my experience with anger. I remember that before embarking on my journey of self-knowledge, which began long before I entered TLE, I really thought good people did not feel angry. I could not even see the anger in me, she was totally repressed. I think one of the reasons for this is that I've never felt free to express myself emotionally with my parents. After all for them I was always exaggerating .. IoI I think my parents never knew how to cope well with their feelings and emotions and consequently did not know how to deal with mine .. And I think I'm finally seeing that this understanding of my feelings is something they just can not give me .. But I think my reactions are exaggerated (be it anger, sadness, crying) because I'm not reacting just that moment .. it's that moment added to all the moments when I did not allow myself to feel and express myself .. I think It can not be repressed forever, it explodes at some point.

    CurvyWords, Hope this helps—in my Michael definitions file I have the following: Anger: unmet expectations. Anger could be said to have BOUNDARIES as the Positive Pole and DEFENSE as a Negative Pole. The sense of the daunting tasks, actions, time, energy, etc. that is realized is necessary for fulfilling responsibilities and sense of purpose; it can feel quite overwhelming and one can feel helpless, which is the underpinning of Anger. Part of this is from a private chat posted by Maureen several years ago. I couldn't find it on the current TLE website to link to, so here I what I have on my computer: Growth Potential via "Shadow" Fragments Posted by Maureen September 19, 2014 Originally published on October 4, 2013 I love Michael’s dream interpretations. Michael even gave us a new term in the interpretation – “Shadow" Fragments – that may be interesting to follow-up on in a public forum. From a Private Live Chat on October 4, 2013: [Maureen]: I would like to review a dream I had with you that I think may relate to a past life I had with my brother and my mother (in this life). I haven’t had the easiest of times with either of them in this life and I was wondering if that difficulty relates to any unfinished business with them from that life. September 29, 2013: Dreamed many dreams, like I was sorting things out or tying up loose ends. It felt like bits and pieces that I was trying to make sense of – even going across multiple lives to “sort-out”. I’ve had a few nights like this in the last few days. The last full-ish one I remember is I was a young woman and I came home or at least I came into a room near the front of the house I lived in where there was a bed where I knew my lover had been with me. I saw that there was blood stains – especially on the pillow. My sense was that the blood was my uncle’s and he had killed my lover. I had the strong sense that the uncle in my dream was my brother in this life. The time period seemed to be in a more distant time and it seemed to be in a middle-eastern culture. I was very upset but I wanted my uncle to “pay” for his crime so I took a pen and circled the blood spots/splashes on a pillow case that I thought were his (which I then stowed away). I have no idea how I knew they were his and not the victim?? Also if the time period is as far back as it felt – there is no way the authorities could do DNA testing or for that matter if they would help me at all – so I’m not sure “why” I did that. This was one of the details that felt overlapping with this time period. Then I went deeper into where I lived (the room where I collected the pillowcase seemed to be at the front of the house – near the front door) I could see then that my mother (in the dream and also in this life) had switched my bedroom with another bedroom to “punish” me and that all my personal belongings were gone – completely – and I was left with “new” furniture – all white without a trace of familiarity or connection to my own energy or my “past”. Also the furniture and personal belongings seemed to fit into this time and place (now) – they didn’t feel like they belonged in the past. I could see my mother off in another room dressed in the all the layers of middle eastern garb. She had really stuck it to me. I felt trapped because although I was “older” (I wasn’t a very young woman – I sensed that I may have been in my late 20s or 30s) I had no way to support myself financially – so I had to continue to live there. I felt like I couldn’t reach out to my boyfriend either (which was strange because at the beginning I thought he was killed off??) because he was poor. I felt really stuck. [Maureen]: Your comments would be appreciated Michael. What is this overlap about? Is there left over business between with my mother and myself that was carried over? Is there left over business with my brother who I felt was the uncle in the dream that was carried over? [MEntity]: As with most dreams, the primary medium of communication is symbolic, even if drawing from very real events in the current life or past lives. Many of the literal parts still contribute to the language of symbolism. [MEntity]: First, this is drawing from Instinctive memory, so the reference to the past life is valid. [MEntity]: It is not unusual for the Old Soul to sift through memories in the Instinctive Center, looking for any reference to issues that were not resolved or may have a chance to find balance in the current life. These would tend to be issues that were not "necessary" for balance or resolution, and were addressed in some way already, but still carry with them a mild charge. [MEntity]: Issues such as those tend to be addressed in the Astral, or even "saved" for the reunion of Entities. [MEntity]: In simplistic terms, it would be something similar to someone slapping you, then you slap back, so the tangible aspects were balanced, but some of the curiosity for motivation for the original slap may remain. [MEntity]: In the life being referenced, it would appear to have been during the Young Soul Age during one of the peak pockets of modern civilization. The "overlap" is probably not from the current life's familiarities, but more that this time period was just similar. [MEntity]: The more literal memories here were of the murder that was committed, and the subsequent process for pursuing justice. This is easily one of those experiences that left several threads of "why" open for further exploration. It would not be the cause of, or the source of, any current stresses among fragments involved in that life, but current stresses may bring up that past, of course. [MEntity]: The symbolic aspects here appear to be speaking to the subconscious exploring this lifetime's potential causes for current issues regarding intimacy, affection, and comforts of union. [Maureen]: that makes sense [MEntity]: Because these issues are in the Higher Moving Center, or the Sacral Chakra, they are not only "close" to the Instinctive Center, but broad in scope across time and space in terms of resonance. [MEntity]: Hence the mix of the past and present. [MEntity]: Of course, the present is the more relevant element here, so we would speak to the concern for how these two fragments may contribute to your blocking of, or lack of, fulfilling intimacy. [MEntity]: Or, rather, how you may feel these fragments have contributed to this. [Maureen]: I can see that Michael – it has been an issue with these two people. [Maureen]: I have had a very hard time trusting either of them. Both of them have gone out of their way to "hurt" me, in ways that I haven't always understood. [MEntity]: Keep in mind that this would be because of experiences and dynamics of the current life, and not because of a murdered lover 500,000 years ago. [Maureen]: I can see that it's a resonance that I picked up on – because of happenings in this lifetime. [MEntity]: Yes, but you also "picked up" on something else: [MEntity]: There are various fragments who set precedent in early lives where their challenges to the Personality were so advantageous toward evolution, there can tend to continue this dynamic, and they are, ironically, some of the most loving of relationships on an Essence Level. [MEntity]: We do not share this with you so that the actions of those fragments are excused, but simply for the information for why the challenges can sometimes be a pattern between fragments, even as they move away from being Karmic. [MEntity]: Knowing this can also help you to look beneath or beyond the superficial aspects of the relationship and into what there is for you to gain from your dynamic. [Maureen]: Interestingly, I have always viewed my brother's "abuse" of me in this lifetime as his targeted (if somewhat clumsy) attempt to be more intimate with me. [MEntity]: For example, someone may have a brutally critical sibling or parent who seems to constantly point to flaws and what is wrong in the self. This can contribute to a myriad of other issues that stem from that kind of input from someone close. [MEntity]: But, in addition to seeing this from the position of "what is wrong with them," or "what is wrong with me," or "this is why I can't be close to someone else now," etc. the entire dynamic could change if seen as a coaxing toward full ownership of confidence and acceptance of self. [Maureen]: I can see that. [MEntity]: For some fragments, a loving, accepting, and nurturing environment is far more suspicious (to the Personality) and gives nothing of obvious substance against which to measure the growth of the self. [Maureen]: That sounds so fucked up – but I get it. [Maureen]: We often need something to push against – in order to grow. [MEntity]: However, when enlisting these fragments to naturally challenge the Personality in the life, it gives potential for that pivotal moment when the Personality launches into a complete ownership of a trait that has been elusive for several lifetimes. [Maureen]: What has been that elusive trait for me? [MEntity]: Keep in mind that "the plan" is not for abuse or devastating events, but as with any good idea from the Astral, once the incarnation begins, it is a gamble, if you will, for how the Personalities will behave and choose. [MEntity]: These fragments with whom there is this kind of pattern tend to be those with a mathematical dissonance that we can go into another time. We could refer to these fragments as "shadow" fragments, or those who follow us through lives to bring out the "shadow" elements of the self. [MEntity]: This trait for you may be Anger. [MEntity]: And all that the term entails. [Maureen]: That makes sense. They did help with that – in this lifetime. I mean that in a good way. [MEntity]: They may have helped provoke it, but you did the work in owning it. [Maureen]: This is very clear to me. I remember my huge shift -- when I finally owned it and applied it. It was liberating. [MEntity]: Anger is one of your least-favorite signals, yet most pervasive and insidious elements of your "shadow." It has haunted many of your Personalities. [Maureen]: I hope I have moved closer to freedom (as opposed to liberation) – within anger – now. [MEntity]: We say this as a matter of spectrum. Anger can be quiet, even as it trembles under the skin. [MEntity]: We have commented on the dream, but we can look at in specific ways of interest to you, if you choose, or move to further questions. [Maureen]: Does Anger have negative/positive poles? [Maureen]: I sensed it as a form of Liberation/Freedom [MEntity]: Yes, Anger could be said to have BOUNDARIES as the Positive Pole and DEFENSE as a Negative Pole. Because Anger represents a spectrum, it can be broken down by those terms, as well. [MEntity]: The liberation/freedom you sense would come from the dissipation of Anger, or the processing of the helplessness that is underneath that anger.

    Makes me think of that future lifetime of mine where Michael said they relayed info about this lifetime and the Infinite Soul manifestation... MEntity: Oh Gawd... he JUST won't stop speaking!

    Must be all this pivoting that is causing the friction that we feel. Nothing like signing up for exciting times. I'm counting on Essence to register this info so that next time it comes up ... who am I kidding? As hard as it gets, I'm glad I'm here at this time. I just have to keep reminding myself of the big picture. So much to remember. AND there's always more.

    [Excerpt from TT: 2003-04-25] I’m not sure what you mean here: “Your Attitude is what either makes or breaks your long-term, most intimate relationships, but it is also the Overleaf most quickly used to avoid that very same potential intimacy.” [Troy] Your Attitude is the Overleaf that is most directly linked to your Chief Feature, and it is also the Overleaf that deals with your “truths”, so, basically, you will find that the people you remain (willingly) with the longest in your life are those who share your Fears and Truths. When you bond on those levels of Personality, the bond can be deep and long-term, but those very Fears and Truths can be what actually keep you from entirely bonding, or to reject that bond as the possibilities become more obvious, creating a push/pull dynamic. The latter description is used in a lot of character relationships in movies and TV as they love/hate each other and resolve their fears/truths. It’s the dance of Attitudes.

    Wow this was... mesmerizing. It felt just like a profoundly whole body moving piece of music for me, but through dance. I remember all of the comments on the Try Guys Episodes involving Eugene said that he was just so hot (to both guys and girls). I can't help but agree. Beautiful inside and out. Ditto on what @Kasia said.

    This is beautiful and painful to watch, and had me in tears by the end. Eugene has always been my favorite of the Try Guys, but I had no idea he was such a talented dancer and artist! Thank you for sharing this, @Troy. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

    https://www.secondhalftravels.com/german-tv-shows-netflix/ Came across that today in case any of you are interested. I highly recommend Babylon Berlin and very glad to see there will be a third season. I also really liked Generation War, if such a show can be liked, but it's really good. I still haven't watched Dark but went today to put it on my watchlist and saw it was already there. But it's going to have to wait until I watch the final season of Jessica Jones!

    @Uma, honestly the best I can tell myself lately is to just take it one step at a time. That's one of the few things that have helped me keep going rather than sinking. Might as well make Dory's "just keep swimming" my 2019 Motto. My Essence says we're en route for more Convergences than Divergences in the decades ahead, which makes sense as the IS is said to collapse parallels by ending or merging them altogether. Plus we're in the Generational Karma of Collapse.

    Thanks to this thread, this song popped into my head today: I wracked my brain trying to figure out which album it's from. Even tho I've listened to all their albums countless times I can only remember the song lists from Boxer and Alligator. I finally had to google the lyrics to figure it out. The song in my head is from their last album, Sleep Well Beast. Also, the timing of this post is syncronous I think, since they played right here in Brooklyn the last two nights I couldn't go to either show. Whaaaaaa. Sad face. My friend went and texted me while she was there last night. She said it was a good show, and it stopped raining just in time since it was an outdoor show. Really sad I missed it. Decided today I'm going to play all ten albums in chronological order to see how many I can listen to before I need to switch to something else. LOL

    It is worse than that. You are actively mocked if you state anything like that. Seth does an annual ghost story show around halloween. He is considered a leader in the Atheist community. He gets crap for it every year. At one point, I was going down the Atheist rebbit hole I began to question what I had learned here. I felt myself closing off to part of me and it hurt. That is when I began to see it for what it is. Just another hierarchy similar to religion with purity tests and everything. I think the thing that finally did it for me was listening to Matt Dillihunty, Rationality Rules and Sam Harris all sit there and make the arguement that free will doesn't exist. None of them realizing that they were making the religious argument that god has a path for you and it is already chosen. To me, the argument that there is no free will is straight up denial of the power choice. Their logic falls apart there for me. I have lived without embracing choice and I have embraced it at times. I have found my life to be better with it. Anyway, I am rambling well of course. But yes @Maureen the doctrine and hierarchy of a church are very much there.

    I'd have to study some more of their teachings to figure out what they're trying to say, and since they seem to have a school structure, I'm not inclined to put in the effort. Remember that Michael's comments about the planes is that they're all present - they interpenetrate. They're just at different vibratory levels. The higher planes encompass more of the system. The astral is just Earth, the Causal includes more and so forth. (Not sure exactly where this is, so I can't give a reference. Sorry.) Given that, it's not at all surprising that the Sun should exist on multiple planes - everything else seems to. I can't say I'm incredibly surprised at the tone if they attract mostly Priests. The "special mission" stuff is what triggers my bullshit detector - but then that's Priest stuff. The notion that we are simply one Sentience among many, and that there is nothing particularly special about us, is one that a lot of Priests would consider anathema.

    ENERGY REPORT June 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) JUNE arrives with an emphasis on an Observation or self-awareness of personal and global patterns of weakness, exhaustion, and blind spots that cannot be ignored or assumed to break by waiting for some future point to arrive. There appears to be a slow realization that “something” must be done in terms of action and employing the Moving Center to move away from Frustration (the negative pole of Moving Center). It is a slow realization that action must be taken, that you must do something. You cannot wait. You must get on board with your impulses to move and to take care of what is necessary and important to you and others, both personally and globally. This is not about impatience or being rash in your behavior or reactionary in behavior, but yet another wave of realization that there is still work to do and efforts to be made that seem daunting and/or uninteresting, but must receive your care. You have been in a waiting room lobby watching for the door to open for far too long and it may be time to go straight to that door and open it, yourself. What is on the other side is yet to be discovered, but the pattern of sitting, waiting, watching, and hoping may be over for you and a return to active, even if begrudging, participation may return in June. It could be said that Observation is sliding to Passion over June. We think that many of our students will begin a move away from the hope that “something will change” and that you should simply wait out or endure until things are better. This is a year where the importance of participation and creation come forward in ways that may never have been revealed to yourself before. It is always helpful to observe and step back and watch and learn, but this must be followed by effort, action, and direction. We think that many of our students may reach a point in June where it is realized that it is better to do SOMETHING that is meaningful even if the bigger picture remains unclear or still uncertain or disappointing. We suggest that our students allow their passion to come forward and rise in them and aim for what inspires you. Even if this seems to be a distraction, it is not. If it inspires you, it is never a distraction. It is a fuel for life and when inspiration is ignored, you lose fuel for life. This realization of the continued need for effort and action mixed with passion and inspiration is going to be helpful for when the ATTITUDE OF REALIST moves into focus in July. The more you allow yourself to nurture your passion and inspiration along with continued efforts and actions that focus on even the little things that matter to you, then Realist would come into the Positive Pole of Objectivity sooner so that you can sense of a clearer picture of your present and future. Give yourself permission and acceptance to seeing where you may be waiting for something and not actively participating in your life. Give yourself permission and acceptance for not knowing what to do or how to do it. Give yourself permission and acceptance to take a chance and aim for what inspires you, even if this means an indirect path toward an uncertain future. The future is created from the moments when you are present and active in your life NOW. The future is not something for which you must wait and hope to arrive. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): June 1st - 5th -- Energy Shift -- AGITATION - June may start off with an agitating wave of energy that marks a return to the use of one’s Moving Center and the shift of Observation toward Passion Mode. Depending on one’s resistance to or lack of action and inspiration, the agitation may be so intense that it exhausts the body and sinks you into bizarre fatigue. Others may simply feel restless or annoyed, while others may feel a sense of motivation and curiosity about renewed efforts for solutions or directions. JUNE 21st -- NEXUS -- CONVERGENCE - Another merging of parallels where inspired actions have increased and returned individually and collectively with a renewed enthusiasm for a better future. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JUNE: WAITING VS WEIGHTING - There are many points in life where one must simply wait. One must be patient. One must understand that what one wants, desires, aims for, etc. takes time and energy and resources. It is important to know when you must wait. This is different from slowly being sedated and halted from any participation in life by the weight of existence. Both Waiting and Weighting can feel frustrating and painful, but Waiting still allows for participation. Weighting halts participation. If you find yourself withdrawing from several areas of your life as it disappoints, challenges, or hurts you, then you are Weighting yourself with the assumption that if you simply stop moving or participating, then the disappointments, challenges, and hurt will subside. This is a lie. Only participation allows for the transformation of disappointments, challenges, and hurt. This participation can come in terms of action, thoughts, inspiration, or understanding, but there must be some participation. If you find that you are under the Weight of life and not just Waiting, it may be helpful for you to just do one thing good for yourself or for someone else. Just that single effort can help lighten the weight and then you can do one more good thing, and then one more, and so on, until you are out from under the weight of life even if you still must wait sometimes.

    "for humans to return to being a part of Earth before launching inevitably to the stars." "My, my, time flies, one step And we're on the moon Next step into the stars My, my, time flies Maybe we could be there soon A one way ticket to Mars" ... Listening to Enya ... I will ask Michael about connections. I wonder if she is an active Michael student.

    @Luciana Flora I just watched Episode 7. This is an extraordinary series. Did you watch the whole season? No spoilers, please. What is it about Germany that disturbs and intrigues me so deeply? I have always been enthused by books and movies about time travel: 'The Butterfly Effect', 'Somewhere in Time', 'Sliding Doors' (parallels), 'Time Cop' et al. They shine a light on the intricacy and subtlety of causality and karma. I'm already excited for Season Two of "Dark", provided 2018 or 2019 arrive, and there is never a guarantee, of course. We woo and romance and nurture the Now like a lover, yearning for the Now to favor us with good fortune and fulfillment, but we can only provide this for ourselves when we make peace with the Now and give it our complete devotion.

    From Michael Speaks: November 2012: [Janet] During a recent POF you gave me this: MEntity: There are vortexes on the planet, 'power spots,' as a result of valid 'ley lines,' if you will, that tend to be gravitational points for Essences. … The ley lines of a planet tend to develop along the same lines of the geometry of sentience calling that planet, 'home.' The area of Greece was a birthplace for many archetypes of consciousness." What exactly are ley lines? Are they part of our world's design, or the physical structure of the planet? From the response quoted above, it seems they may be somehow created in association with activities or design of the sentient species? [MEntity] "Ley Lines" is an arbitrary term to describe a valid network of circuitry that exists as part of a planet's chakra system, if you will. In much the same way that a body is still alive, even if not sentient, so can a planet be. However, in the same way that a body then changes because of the Sentience, so does a planet, each reflecting the design of that sentience. Once Sentience becomes a part of a system, it must have a circuitry through which it can manifest and be sustained. This is immediately in place on a rudimentary level upon first incarnation of Sentience, and more often in place previous to that through the work done collectively exploring the Kingdoms of that planet. This circuitry is not imposed, but does evolve and change, and eventually degrade. The first structures are based in what is available, and this quickly evolves. In this case, the carbon molecule was used as the starting point. Cetaceans gave rise to some strengths in the network before human Sentience arrived, lending some comfort in the transition from the Sirius system. As incarnations unfold across the planet, then, this network grows in complexity and strength, based on civilizations, cultures, societies, that rise and fall. Imagine this circuitry as something similar to how an atmosphere works for the body. This must be in place for the body to function, and so this circuitry must be in place for the Essence. That atmosphere MUST be compatible with the body or it will die. This circuitry must be compatible with Essence, or it cannot incarnate at all. This circuitry acts as a kind of gravity for the soul, if you will. Over the course of incarnations, Configurations, Working Groups, Essence Twins, Task Companions, Entities, Cadres, Energy Rings, work to develop various points and lines in this network. That "work to develop" is simply a by-product of incarnation, and the use of the matter of that part of the planet as cycled through the body. This is how one might begin to then find oneself strangely attracted to geographical areas of the planet that have never been visited, or to be moved by those when visited. "Your" matter, literally, is a part of that region, a part of the cycling of matter local to that region. Exploring the carbon molecule and how it functions can lend insight into these "ley lines" and vortexes that is reflective of Human Sentience. We have more to say on this subject, of course.

    Thank you for sharing your reactions, @NickG! The final scene at the bus stop is shattering. These two characters were so real to me by this point, their emotional & sexual connection was so visceral, that I was totally invested in what was going to happen. And this digs up all our own experience and pain of "not-the-right-time love" and missed chances. I said in an earlier post that I think the Fleabag character is a King-cast Sage. Or maybe reversed-- I always get the cast/role reversed. The Sage flavor is obvious but the King because she is searching for mastery of herself. Like in the confessional, when she tells the priest that she wants someone to tell her how to live, to dictate her choices for her, because she thinks she is getting it all wrong. That was heartbreaking and then the "kneel", and oh god, is it hot in here?

    It is not about the roles being equal. It is about cops not killing unarmed black kids. It is about white college boys not getting off for rape. It is about no one having more money than the GDP of entire nations with they walk past people on the street who haven't eaten in days. The roles are effective for what they do. They are not better or worse than each other. They provide a function. Sages communicate. Warriors organize at the worker level. Servers support. Artiisans challenge, desgin and build. Priests inspire. Kings organize at high level. King says we should do X. Priest gets people excited. Sage cleary communicates why. Warrior organize the process. Artisans design it. And servers team mom everyone. That's my view of it anyway.

    OMW - Jul 21, 2012 - Personal Cycles of Life MEntity Channel: Troy Tolley Began 9:56 AM 7/21/2012; Ended 2:37 PM 7/21/2012 (Approx. 4-1/2 hours) The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan. [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin with a discussion about the nature of cycles and the potential benefit of understanding these. In every Universe, Planetary System, Planet, and its various life forms, there are cycles in effect that affect all who are a part of that dynamic. Many of these are obvious and observable, and many are on such vast or minute scales they are either missed, or nearly impossible to be concerned with from the Personality's point of view. Today we will discuss with you as many of the cycles that are relevant to the Personality as we can thoroughly discuss. The cycles of relevance tend to develop systems around them as a means to help measure them and track them, such as Astrology and Numerology, which are both valid systems for such things, when applied in legitimate ways. We will not go into the effects or measurements of such cycles that are most obvious, such as the hours of a day, seasons, lunar, etc., except in how they may apply to the cycles of relevance we will discuss. It is not that these more mundane cycles are not relevant, but that they are more useful as markers than as having actual effects. They are more reflective, than causative. There are 12 Cycles of Relevance, as we will call them for now, that may be of use to each Personality for understanding the cycles of his or her life. These are not predictive cycles, in terms of telling you what to expect in detail, but can be predictive in terms of their emphasis. Considering these as predictive only of emphasis in context is a more useful way of understanding these. For example, you know what time tomorrow will come, and that it indicates a new day, and that these days can be measured, mapped out, and counted on, but you cannot predict what each day will contain. To start, we will look at the most intimate of the Cycles: your Relationship Cycles, Comprehension Cycles, and your Life Plan Cycles. Relationship Cycles (Astrology and M/F Energies) Relationship Cycles are often run by your Male/Female, or Focused/Creative Cycles as measured by the ratio of "male to female" energy in your Essence as it is then reflected more mundanely in the Body. Bodies without Essence are either 100% Male/Focused Energy or 100% Female/Creative Energy. As Essence moves through a Body, the body shifts in dynamic to reflect the ratio inherent in the design of your Essence. Until the 2nd Internal Monad is completed, the Body tends to hold its emphasis relative to the gender of the body. After that, the ratio shifts to reflect Essence. Once the hormonal wash that often accompanies the 3rd Internal Monad is activated, then the Relationship Cycles, or M/F Energy Cycles are in effect. Regardless of your Male/Female Energy Ratio, your Relationships will tend to play out the cycles of both Energies, and because your Bodies are directly involved with relating, the body tends to reflect those cycles in fairly tangible terms. Before we elaborate, we will point out here, as an important aside, that there are 3 measurements of cycles that tend to be the most relevant and meaningful, at least in our system. These are measurements, or counts, of 7, 9, and 12. Measurements, or counts, of 7 are relative to Propulsion Cycles, or Evolutionary Cycles. It is a propelling force. Measurements, or counts, of 9 are relative to Completion Cycles, or Wholeness Cycles. Measurements, or counts, of 12 are relative to Expansion Cycles, or Empowerment Cycles. So in terms of your Male/Female Energy, both of these are in effect through your body, regardless of gender. Your Female/Creative Energy works in cycles of 28 days, divided into two cycles of 14 days, with the first cycle being an Inspirational/Emotional Cycle, and the second cycle being an Expressive/Intellectual Cycle. If one has a female body, this can often be measured in terms of the cycles of ovulation and menstruation. If one has a male body, this can be more difficult to measure, but can most often be measured in terms of "mood," as the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle can tend to be the most telling for both genders, as both will either be comfortable in their skin and social during that cycle, or "bitchy," sensitive, and reactionary during that cycle. The more moody and sensitive the Intellectual/Expressive Cycle, the more that individual is working through honesty and trust issues with the self or with others, and finding the voice for that. The stereotypical woman "PMS'ing" is an example of this, as the Intellectual/Expressive kicks into high gear for "getting out" what normally does not get a voice. Men do the same thing. Two weeks of every 28 days during these Creative/Female Cycles helps to relieve the body and the Personality of restrictions on otherwise suppressed feelings, thoughts, words, etc. [Bobby] Does the indicator you gave me, Transiting Moon opposite Natal Sun, match this 14 day period? [MEntity] Not necessarily, Bobby, but may be an indication for various individuals. Though these cycles are valid in terms of measuring by days, they can tend to fluctuate for various reasons, and some "weeks" may be shorter than others, or some cycles may go longer than normal, etc. For most, the cycles are most simply noted by when you notice you are inspired vs when you are suddenly moody "for no reason." The Male/Focused side of the cycle of one's Energy Ratio moves in cycles of 54 days, divided into 3 sub-cycles of 18 days each. Those sub-cycles are an Action Cycle, Expressive Cycle, and Inspirational Cycle. These sub-cycles can be most notably observed by their corresponding names, in that the Action cycle is quite active, sexual, aggressive, more outward in focus, and the Expressive Cycle is more thoughtful, communicative, expressive, and the Inspirational cycle is sleepier, more introspective. These two cycles, and their sub-cycles, are both moving through you at different paces, so that the mix and match of energies is constantly in flux. Combine this with the mix and match of others around you, and there is a great dance of energies happening among you at any moment. This adds a great amount of variation and variety to all forms of relating, and thus this is why we refer to this as your Relationship Cycle. Male/Female Energy Ratio describes how one navigates the life in terms of seeking balance, and this applies to relationships, as well. Depending upon where you are in your cycles, this tends to bring in a balancing set of cycles from others, or similar cycles. Taking responsibility for where you are in your own cycles can help you to relieve others of the responsibility for balancing you out. However, it can also help you to allow others to be in your life as a way to help you balance those out. Regardless of gender, if your ratio is higher on one side than the other by more than 65, then you may tend to relate more, and require balance more, in regard to that cycle. It may also be the side of the Ratio that is most easily revealed to you in observation. So if you are in a male body with higher female energy, you may actually sense your cycles of inspiration vs expression even more obviously than your male cycles of action, expression, and inspiration. Keep in mind that the expression and inspiration cycles overlap in terms for male and female energy, but their implementations are quite different. The male expression and inspiration cycles will be about structure, planning, and all other "focused" qualities, while the female expression and inspiration cycles are far more fluid, open, unstructured, and "creative" in quality. We realize this is a great deal of daunting information and we are only on the first of cycles to consider, but each will progressively require less detail, and we will continue to increase in speed of delivery. To help make the information we have shared so far useful, here is a quick synopsis of what to do: If you are female, make note of your ovulation/menstruation cycles. This can help you map your Creative Energy cycles. If you no longer ovulate or menstruate, or if you are in a male body, you can make note of when you feel the most inspired, with ideas flowing, and visions upheld, and increases in dream lucidity for when you are in the Inspirational cycle of the Creative Energy. You can also note when your mood turns in a noticeable way toward being sharper, more sensitive, brooding, or "moody," mind racing, and a sense of "facing or saying the truth" (even as it may be completely inaccurate), which may indicate the Expressive Cycle. Both of these cycles tend to be about one's mood, so keeping an eye on those distinct patterns can be helpful. Are you in the mood to construct, or in the mood to deconstruct, may be the easiest question to ask in mapping this. If you are male, you can map your male cycles by noting when you find your scent to increase, your sexual urges are amped up, and your distraction with attraction is obvious. This would mean you may be in your Action Cycle. Mapping from there could be fairly easy. This is also the easiest way for those in a female body to note where they are in a male cycle. As it is distinctly "male." Those with high male energy, whether in male or female bodies, may find it easier to note when they shift into sleep mode, introspective and maybe even escapist. This would be the male cycle of Inspiration. We know that these may be difficult to discern, but once one has found a mark, the rest is "just math." From there, you can actually mark your calendars for a general mapping of your cycles so that you will know the most sensitive spans of time, the most aggressive, the most exhausting, etc. This is an amazing way to get to know your body in a way that you may never have paid attention to before. How you feel in your body affects your relationships. Understanding the cycles that affect how you feel in your body, then, can help you to understand your relationship patterns. You cannot map everyone's cycles around you, and you do not have to do so in order to gain understanding. Giving yourself permission and understanding when you are in a cycle that is prompting you to be introspective, sensitive, and expressive helps you to keep from blaming others for your mood, your feelings, etc. It also frees you from expecting others to understand you when you have not done the work of understanding yourself. This, in turn, helps you to not blame others for their moods, processes, and states because you now understand that there are cycles involved that are beyond the control of the individual, except in how one understands and manages these. Offering understanding and insight when someone is in a rough cycle can be much more beneficial than offering disgust and anger. For those working on relationships of any kind, whether in a project, or in a marriage, this first, most-basic Cycle of Relevance can save the day, when it is understood. Noting these on your own is the most efficient means of getting into the accuracy of the cycles, but if one wishes to compare this to Lunar and Martial Transits, there may be a pattern unique to you that helps map these cycles. Lunar being relative to Creative/Female Cycles, and Martial being relative to Focused/Male Cycles. The patterns these make in Astrology are not on the same scales of measurement as the cycles of the energies, but you may still find some correlation that is useful. Before we move on to the next Cycles of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions. [Bobby] what exactly is it about any planet that matches these energies.. I know it isn't gravity [Bobby] if the answer for this is too long, just say so and we can come back to that another day ? [MEntity] The use of planets in Astrology is purely symbolic and relative to the developing Sentience and its exposure to, or awareness of, a planetary system. The planets are reflective of cycles in the psyche, bodies, etc., but are not causative. For instance, Mars Retrograde does not cause electronics to break down, or communications to falter, but, instead, reflects when the psyche is more attuned to, and affected by, those areas already weakened in that context. Think of the planets as various flashlights. In the same way that they reflect light in the sky as relative to your perspective, they also reflect patterns back as relative to your perspective. [GeraldineB] Are biorhythm charts a good way to monitor these particular cycles? [MEntity] If one wants to use a biorhythmic calculator for monitoring cycles, it is a good idea to do so, but only if there are calibrations made for what you observe vs what is calculated. For example, you may find that when the calculator reads that your Inspirational/Emotional cycle is critical, that is when you feel the most inspired. Noting this, you can then translate the calculator to accommodate your cycle in a more meaningful way. One would need to watch the calculator vs personal observation for at least 3 months to see what patterns are in need of translation. [GeraldineB] if they don't volunteer -- you said you'd biorhythms in more detail (but I see their cycles are completely different, too, other than the one 28 day) [MEntity] As for biorhythms: these can be used in the same was as Astrology. There are distinct measurements already locked into the patterns of biorhythms, as in Astrology, and therefore some pattern correlations may be found if observed long enough. In the same way that you can measure your M/F Energy cycles in a scale of weeks and not hours, it may take some larger arcs of observation to see the correlations that can be measured by these other systems. Biorhythms will come in handy for monitoring another Cycle of Relevance coming up (Comprehension Cycle -- see next topic) [Maureen] This is all very interesting Michael [MEntity] As we discuss each Cycle, we will mention any correlating system that is most relevant and helpful for monitoring that Cycle. Comprehension Cycle (Frequency and Biorhythm-like) Next up is your Comprehension Cycle. This is directly related to your Frequency. This is not an easy pattern to map, but a pattern that is easy to observe in effect. This oscillation not only describes how Essence processes experiences, but also describes how this is reflected in how the brain gathers, processes, and archives experiences. In fact, all of which we are describing to you, in terms of Cycles of Relevance, is reflected in some circles of known Physics by the term "oscillation." For example, the Relationship Cycle and all of its breakdown between Male and Female Cycles is what might be explored further as a "coupled oscillation," whereas the Frequency is a "harmonic oscillation." And then there are "driven oscillations," which we can correlate to other Cycles. The Frequency describes one's rate of comprehension. It does not describe one's capacity for comprehension, simply the rate of comprehension. This is the rate of speed through which one converts experience into knowledge. Understanding one's rate of comprehension, or Frequency, can help one to free the self and others from forcing comprehension when it simply cannot come faster than expected. To understand this spectrum of Frequency, we will describe the more obvious extremes of high and low, first. A higher frequency Essence and fragment will tend to be similar to one collecting shiniest objects of experience, first. They can collect many, and this contributes to a wide range of knowledge, as they have collected from so many directions. However, to thoroughly comprehend a single experience, it must be returned to, over and over, working through the "duller" levels, until there is comprehension. Each level uncovered is like a level being brought into the light (shiny enough). A higher frequency person might be similar to one who notices the beauty of the light reflecting off of the bumpers of several cars, and comprehending in a flash that these vehicles are truly beautiful, before realizing they are standing in the middle of traffic about be run over. Their cycles are fast, but brief, and broad. They may be "run over" several times before comprehending all that is involved with crossing a street. This does not make them slow learners. Learning and comprehending are not the same things here. Collecting experiences that contribute to wisdom is Comprehension here. Because experience can tend to have many layers for comprehension, having a higher frequency or rate of comprehension can help to gather a great many experiences at once. When one has a lower rate of comprehension, or lower frequency, it means that one is more likely to focus on one experience, and all of its layers, before moving on to other experiences. This might be similar to the person standing at the edge of a street of traffic "forever" before actually crossing the street. But when they do, they will probably not be hit by a car. They notice all of the shiny, but also the rubber, the pavement, the patterns of driving, stopping, etc. Each layer is thoroughly taken in AND THEN put together at once as Comprehension. Once there is Comprehension for a lower frequency, it is fairly complete in the explorations of layers. However, it can take a long time for that movement through layers to finally come into a state that allows for comprehension. [Maureen] Michael -- being at mid-range -- I feel like I'm all over the map -- it's mess some days. Sometimes I get hit by cars -- sometimes I don't. ...and I like to play in traffic. [MEntity] So while the higher frequency may be run over a lot more, he is crossing a lot of roads along the way. And while the lower frequency may be stuck at the side of a road for a long time, he may never find he is run over. These metaphors are crude, but helpful. Another way to understand this is to think of how one might work through an onion. The higher frequency will slice off what it needs and eat the sandwich into which he intends that slice to go. The lower frequency may peel the onion, layer by layer, working through blinding tears, so that the entire onion can be used in its soup. Those in the mid-range will tend to lean in whatever direction is most natural for the experience. The Frequency, or Comprehension Cycles, are basically Cycles that be described as those of Distraction (higher), Interaction (mid), and Attention/Extraction (lower.) Those who are Distracted gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Those who are Interactive (able to pivot more easily between Distraction and Extraction) tend to gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Those who are Extractive, tend to gain experiences by paying attention, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Societies tend to move in these cycles of comprehension, as well, relative to the dominant Frequency of that culture. For instance, much of the occidental world is in a Distraction cycle, so a great deal of its comprehension is gained through distracting avenues (reality tv, twitter, social media, abbreviations, etc.) Understanding these variations in Cycles of Comprehension can bring great relief to the individual and groups aiming for collecting experiences for wisdom. Those who are autistic or "ADHD" or "ADD" tend to have higher Frequencies, for example. Before we move on to the next Cycle of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions on Frequency and the Comprehension Cycle. [GeraldineB] No, I think I "get it" at this point -- may have followups in the future [Maureen] I just realized that mid-range is a really great frequency to have as a therapist Michael -- Thanks! [GeraldineB] I'm mid-range, too (55) I think -- anyway it helps to keep me balanced [GeraldineB] it's when I get Passion as a Mode that I go nutso ? [Maureen] LOL -- me too! [Maureen] I guess [MEntity] This is why there is such a limit within the range of your Frequency point, because there is really no altering one's rate of comprehension. It is not necessary for everyone to be at the same rate of comprehension, or sharing the same Cycles of Comprehension, but there will always be a necessity for understanding and bridging the differences. [Martha] I'm 40 but love social media and I multitask a lot [MEntity] If our symptoms of Frequency are out of synch with your experiences, we would suggest looking at your Frequency point again. It may be incorrect. [Martha] Troy got 40, Jose Stevens got 30 [MEntity] We think you are hit by cars much more than you remain standing by the road, if you will. [Martha] maybe it's 6th being level? [Martha] being 6th* [Maureen] What is Martha's Frequency then? [GeraldineB] I dunno -- I think Martha is extra careful due to an even higher frequency child [Martha] she's 78 [Maureen] Your daughter doesn't make you "multi-task" and like FB Martha! [MEntity] If you relate more to the higher frequency symptoms, we would suggest a correction of Frequency. [GeraldineB] well, what frequency do you see for her, Michael? [Martha] no she doesn't, Maureen ? Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans (Numerology) [MEntity] Next up is the Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans. We will look at that for her if that is requested, but for now we would suggest a process of validation, first. If the information here is cause for correction, Martha will probably know. [Martha] I feel like I process big stuff slowly but can handle lots of things going on all the time [Martha] I don't know if that make sense to anyone ? [MEntity] Her mid-range is not unbelievable to us. [GeraldineB] maybe she IS a 40 but functions closer to 55-60 to cope with others [MEntity] That is correct. [Martha] may be why I need to get away from people regularly ? [Maureen] my Sage sister is at 80 -- and she's like that Martha [MEntity] The Cycle of Life Plans is fairly easy to map and to measure, and has a direct correlation to Numerology. This is one of the few Cycles that has such a direct means of measuring and mapping of it. Every life moves in cycles of completion, which are mapped in cycles of 9. However, this is not the case of the first year of life counting as a first count of 9. Instead, one would use Numerology to calculate his or her "Life Path Number" as an indication of where in the cycle one has entered into this incarnation. Using the known birthday and year is enough. It is not necessary for this to be accurate to an actual birthday, if that is not known, such as in adoption. It is the adopting of the birthday and year that is significant here. This calculation is probably familiar to most of our students as adding all of the numbers of your birth month, day, and year, and then continuing to reduce those numbers by addition until there is a single number. Using Troy as an example, with January 20, 1968, this would be 0+1+2+0+1+9+6+8 = 27, 2+7=9. Using the interpretations already set in Numerology, one can get a sense of what Essence was planning for this current lifetime, and where in its cycles of exploration it might be. To understand where you are within that greater context, then one would use the month and day of birth, added to the current year. So for Troy this would be 0+1+2+0+2+0+1+2 = 8. [GeraldineB] Michael -- since my adoption was completed when I was 7 years old -- and I can't remember the date, what would I use? [GeraldineB] just the current extrapolation based on Day/Month/current year? [MEntity] We suggest using whatever you have been using as your birth day, month, and year overall, since having to choose one. [GeraldineB] ok [MEntity] What we are doing here will be applied to a different Cycle we will describe in a moment, but doing both now is helpful. Troy, then, would be described as having a Life Path Number of 9, but is in an "8 year" of his Cycle of Life Plans. We invite each of you to share your results, as well. [Maureen] I'm a birth 6 in a 10 or a 1 year [Maureen] does the 10 become a 1? [MEntity] Always reduce to a single digit. [GeraldineB] apparently, I am 5 birth and 2 current [GeraldineB] and both Martha and Diane had to leave [Maureen] Is there any significance to being a Priest and having a 6 Lifetime? [Maureen] Or being a Sage and having a 5 Lifetime? [MEntity] Maureen, no, because you will also have every other number as a reference over your incarnations. [Maureen] OK [GeraldineB] sorta like Astrology -- you're probably never gonna duplicate any birth chart again [MEntity] What matters here, for now, is your number as it reflects your Cycle of Life Plans, or "personal year" number in Numerology. [Maureen] OK [MEntity] This Cycle is based on cycles of completion regarding themes, and anything related to those themes. These themes are described by the overall Life Plan/Path Number. Exploring the interpretation of your Life Path Number in Numerology, and where you are in your Cycle of Life Plans, can shed great light on the layers of themes being explored within the lifetime. In terms of where one might be in a Cycle of Life Plans, the numbers might be easily referenced as: 1 = Initiations/Beginnings; 2 = Cooperations/Nurturing; 3 = Productions/Expansions; 4 = Focus/Troubleshooting; 5 = Respite/Playtime; 6 = Intimacy/Resonance; 7 = Analysis/Learning; 8 = Empowerment/Harvesting; 9 = Reflection/Closure. These keywords are suggestions, but you may find other interpretations that resonate more. [GeraldineB] And this would be for the birth number? [MEntity] These keywords, then would be used to describe where you may be in your exploration of the theme described by your Life Path number. [Maureen] would concurrents be a different Life Plan number -- or the same? Aren't they usually the same Theme? [GeraldineB] yea -- I'm on a theme with my concurrents -- Revelation [Maureen] would the numbers also describe your Life Plan number? [MEntity] In answer to Geraldine: Life Path Number = MM+DD+YYYY of birth; Cycle of Life Plans = MM+DD (of birth) + current year YYYY [GeraldineB] ok -- that clarified it [MEntity] In response to Maureen: Concurrents may share a Life Path Number, regardless of when each was born, as the math would be what matters, not the numbers, but where one is in the Cycle of Life Plans might be different. [Maureen] I can see that [MEntity] There is no consistency that we can see in terms of those being the same across concurrents, though. [Maureen] so the same "theme" would be expressed through the Life Path Number -- but the different experiences would be collected for Essence through different Cycles of Life (i.e. what number year you are in)? [MEntity] The keywords we used above are relative to the shorter cycles within the Life Plans, but are not fair to the greater arc of the actual Life Plan. So being in an 8 year has a different context than being in an 8 lifetime. Think of the year number as the Casting and the "Role" as the Life Plan/Path number. Troy, then, would be described as being in an 8-Cast Year for a 9 Lifetime. This is yet another crude way of explaining, but it works for now. [Maureen] OK [GeraldineB] I cannot validate that my "Life Plan" number of 5 (Respite/Playtime) resonates at all with how my life has gone [MEntity] We suggest that you look up "personal year number" vs "Life Path number" when exploring your numbers here. [Maureen] OK - Thanks [MEntity] Geraldine, that is our point. A 5 year is very different from a 5 lifetime. [GeraldineB] I'd have to look closely at the 2 (Current) -- it seems a lot softer than I am (but I've got to look at it in context of my now Personality) [MEntity] We will help each of you in this for now: Give to us your Life Path Number (based on your entire birth date) and your Personal Year Number (based on your month and day added to current year). We already described the numbers as part of the Cycles of Life Plans (based on current year), but we will now describe the Life Path Numbers (based on birth year): [Maureen] Life Plan Number: 6, Personal Year Number: 2 [Maureen] Correction: Personal Year Number: 1 [GeraldineB] lol -- ok there we go again -- Life Plan Number 5 [MEntity] LIFE PLAN/PATH NUMBER THEME KEYWORDS suggested are: 1 = INDEPENDENCE/STRENGTH; 2 = INTIMACY/SHARING/PARTNERSHIPS; 3 = CREATIVITY/SOCIALIZING; 4 = GROUNDING/STABILITY/ENDURANCE; 5 = CONSTANT CHANGE/FLEXIBILITY/EXPANSION; 6 = HARMONY/PEACE/HEALING; 7 = SEARCHING/CURIOSITY/OBSERVATION; 8 = HAVING/LEADING/CONFIDENCE; 9 = ABUNDANCE/HUMANITARIANISM/HIGHER PURPOSE [Maureen] That is great Michael! [GeraldineB] that actually resonates [MEntity] Comparing these simplistic keywords between the Path Number and Year Number may help validate, but exploring each further in the context of Numerology can help expand upon that, then. Taking the numbers you offered: if Geraldine is in a 5 Lifetime, then the themes would be around Change/Flexibility and Expansion, but if she is in a 2 year, then it would mean that that greater theme is now being explored through having to work in Cooperation and using Nurturing. [GeraldineB] good, that makes sense for me [MEntity] This means that approximately every 9 years, the theme of 2 = Cooperation and Nurturing repeats itself in a new layer of the Life Path of Constant Change/Flexibility/Expansion. Maureen would be in a 1 cycle of new beginnings and initiations aimed at helping further explore her themes of Healing/Peace/Harmony. Keep in mind that we are referring to a completely different system from our own, but it works here in understanding this Cycle of Life Plans. [Maureen] that makes sense for me as well Michael [MEntity] We might more accurately describe these numbers, then, as Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans. Again, the only number relevant to the Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans is the "year number" based on the current year. The Life Plan number (based on birth year) is a part of a greater cycle we will describe in a moment. [GeraldineB] Is it possible to have a quick answer as to why someone like Holmes, the man who just killed 12 people and wounded 56 others would deviate so far from any of these descriptions? [GeraldineB] These would appear to be purely "positive pole" [MEntity] In response to the question regarding "negative" lifetimes, it would be correct to assess that these are more neutral, or aspiring, themes, but each can fall into negative states. A 5 Life Plan can bring great growth, expansion and flexibility for the individual, but can also fall into wreaking havoc, chaos, and suffering upon others. The craving for stimulation either attracts the constant change, or imposes it. We will not go into all of the negative states, as this is thoroughly covered in competent Numerology texts. REMAINING CYCLES As we have gone extensively beyond the time frame of this workshop, we will describe the remaining cycles briefly. The three cycles we already described are the most-immediately useful, with tangible references and impact, if you choose to understand and map them. Those first three cycles describe patterns that emerge as a result of what Essence infused into the life before "you" were born, and how those emerge. You will always have a choice in how those play out, regardless of their repetitive emergences. We realize, however, that it would not be useful to add on the remaining cycles, but to leave this exchange with the focus on the three that have been discussed. We will cover the remaining in another way through this channel. The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan. The next tiers are the: CYCLES OF EXPANSION, which include one's Cycles of Learning/Resistance; Cycles of Harmony/Discord; and Cycles of Creativity/Destruction; CYCLES OF PURPOSE, which are Cycles of Humor, Cycles of Discipline, and Cycles of Focus; and finally CYCLES OF DISCOVERY, which are Cycles of Healing, Cycles of Surrender, and Cycles of Acceleration. (Note: Since this session went 4-1/2 hours, Michael and Troy decided that the other Cycles will have to be done at some future time. Maureen and I have already discussed it with Troy -- hopefully, we'll be setting up another session in August that isn't an OMW, but will continue with this Cycle information. glb)

    [Bobby2] Since this is a 6 numbered entity, is that reflective in its Priestly energies in any way? [Michael Entity] It is true there would be “priestly” qualities inherent in the dynamic of any Entity 6, lending it a deep Compassion or a strong Zeal. In addition to that mathematical dynamic, Entity 6 emphasizes the spectrum of experiences between the negative pole of Connection and the positive pole of Harmony. In Connection, the fragments of any Entity 6 may find themselves in positions that pivot other lives, or that they may move from one support or social circle to another throughout the life, always drawing a line of connections among fragments or groups like a “connect-the-dot” exploration. In Harmony, the fragments no longer find themselves splintered among various parts of the life, and/or fragmented by relationships to various people in the life, but find that everything plays a part in an overall Harmony.

    [ShannonB] You told us, long ago, that many of the fragments presently incarnate on this plane were here to witness the Infinite Soul. Now it seems, the IS is not coming in the manner expected. Will all of these millions of incarnates cycle off (or die) and “depopulate” the planet as planned, or have the plans changed? [Michael_Entity] During a period of time wherein the Infinite Soul may manifest, it is not done “lightly.” Though last year appeared to indicate a shift in changes as to whether the Infinite Soul may manifest at all, your coming year may prove to require a continuation as “planned.” In your Time perspective and sense of change, it may appear to be more whimsical than you would think, but it is not. There are parallels where the manifestation has already occurred. There are some where it will not. The probability of a manifestation in this parallel, as it stands tonight, is approximately 44% within 10 years and 67% within 30. As for the “depopulation,” we looked at probabilities approximately 10 years ago for what is now your present and saw a great reduction “by now,” but this has not occurred and does not appear to be. This is a strong indication that Essences are still very eager to enter into exchange while Physical with the Infinite Soul.

    The 7 Stages of the 7th Internal Monad (Dying) Channeled by Troy Tolley, July 4th, 2011 POF Session [Geraldine] After yesterday's session on the 3rd Internal Monad, I've decided to ask for a similar listing for each of the other IMs, but not necessarily in order. We have the least information on how the 7th IM processes. Taking into consideration that it's done fully on the Astral, plus includes belief systems allowing for full play of imagination, healing from difficult lives, and a full Review, it may have the same 7 Stages, but how they process would be quite variable and different. So, I'd like a full listing and description on how the 7th Internal Monad is processed and whether negative/positive poles have any validity on the Astral. [MEntity] As explained previously, each Internal Monad will have the same Stages of INITIATION, INTROSPECTION, REALIZATION, MANIFESTATION, CONTENTMENT, MAGNETIZATION, and EMANATION. These terms can be altered to reflect the contexts of each Internal Monad, of course, but the point would be similar. To help understand the relativity of each Stage for each Internal Monad, describing the Poles as more contextual is helpful. In the case of the 7th Internal Monad, the Stages can be described as follows: INITIATION comes with a Positive Pole of Transition, Negative Pole of Attachment; INTROSPECTION comes with a Positive Pole of Grief and a Negative Pole of Denial; REALIZATION comes with a Positive Pole of Detachment and a Negative Pole of Return; MANIFESTATION comes with a Positive Pole of Review, and a Negative Pole of Devastation; CONTENTMENT comes with a Positive Pole of Reunion, and Negative Pole of Haunting; MAGNETIZATION comes with the Positive Pole of Integration, and a Negative Pole of Fragmentation; EMANATION comes with the Positive Pole of Transcendence, and a Negative Pole of Dependence. These Stages can be done in the process of dying, or post-death of the Body. The Personality matrix, or Etheric Body, does not "die" with the Physical Body that stabilized it as a structure for the lifetime through genetics, and so the work of the Internal Monad can be done while "in" or "out" of the Body. In other words, "you" do not die with the body. The Poles describe the Stages of progress that allow for Essence to evolve, and this evolution is dependent upon Transcending the paradigm that is a Soul Age Level. The Positive Poles describe the process of accepting that one has ended a lifetime, embraces that truth, collects its matrix of energy from the Physical Plane, reviews the lifetime, updates records and checks in with other entity and cadre members, adds the Personality to the collective of Essence, and through that integration comes a cascading effect of integration for all other fragments left over that Soul Age Level, leading to the transcendence. The Negative Poles describe the denial, attachment, and rejection of the process of death, and remains attached to the Physical Plane, either through family members, objects, time patterns, or even the body, itself. The Essence cannot transcend, or move to the next Soul Age Level while any Personality is still attached to any time frame, space frame, or bodies. We can elaborate upon this more at another time, but this mapping may be helpful for now.
