    My concern with this is that a description that excludes whatever gender might be visible or presented may rob someone of information that would be useful in confirming a connection. While there are individuals that behave and present themselves in a gender-neutral way, this is not the norm -- yet, anyhow. Usually some gender is presented as part of the individual's self-identification. Can you not include something like "presents as male" if Michael has the info rather than excluding this information altogether? I'm all for using Focused and Creative and have wanted this change for a long time.

    I think this is fine, but for the Status vs Gender part, perhaps we could have it more based in choice. As in, if the questioner wants to know the gender of an agreement or incarnate personality, they have to ask. Otherwise, info won't be given. I find it useful to know the gender anyways.

    I'm around here too now and then, lol, so better late than never... I'm super grateful for being part of this lovely community and for all the wisdom, knowledge, insights, questioning and sharings you all bring here. I learn so much from all of you and I have also learned to better express myself in English through the years because of this community. Thank you! I've probably learned to better express myself at all.... Where would my life be without Troy and Michael!? It would not be the same as now, and probably more painful and difficult. I appreciate so much the work you're doing, and I'm so thankful for you being part of my life. I wish I will be able to join TLEGG at some point, but in my heart it's like I know so many of you quite a lot already. I'm quite sure we already communicate telepathically now and then. My deepest thank you to all of YOU who care about reading this. You matter to my life more than you probably can imagine. Love you all.

    This song moved me to tears today when I heard it for the first time. It speaks to me very deeply. It feels like an anthem for our times. I feel the tension of the fork in the road we are at. It feels like I am out of step with the entire world. Is it only me that wants peace, not conflict? To help people, not harm them? To speak truth, no matter how uncomfortable it may be? To progress further forward, to climb higher, to expand beyond our restrictions? Britain is currently at the threshold of two doors - one seems to offer everything that I align with, and the other door takes us backwards, downwards, inwards, running from imaginary monsters while creating real ones.    It feels like I am alone standing in opposition to the inevitable - but as this song shows - I AM NOT ALONE.       Lyrics: You Are Not Alone Emeli Sandé Are you sick and tired of being lied to? Getting kinda bored of being ignored? Can't find the tribe that you belong to? Oh my friend, you are not alone Are you tired of begging for some answers? Are you scared you won't make it out alive? Does it make you sick when truth is censored? Oh my friend, you are not alone Oh you are not alone here, don't fear You are not alone here, no way There's plenty more others here, yeah yeah My friend, oh you are not alone Are you tired of working for the minimum? Has your heart adjusted to the dark? Well does it make you sick they kill the innocent? Oh my friend, you are not alone Well, are you dreaming of a brighter future? Somewhere the children can be free Will you risk it all to tell the truth? Yeah My friend, oh you are not alone Oh you are not alone here, don't fear You are not alone here, no way There's plenty more others here, yeah yeah My friend, oh you are not alone Are you tired of feeling so invisible? Are you sick of silencing your voice? Do you still have hope that peace is possible? My friend, oh you are not alone You are not alone here, don't fear You are not alone here, no way There's plenty more others here, yeah yeah My friend, oh you are not alone You are not alone here, (don't fear) You are not alone (here), no way, no way There's plenty more others here, yeah yeah My friend, you are not alone You are not alone (you are not alone) You are not alone here, (don't fear) (You are not alone here, no way) no way (There's plenty more others here, yeah yeah) My friend, oh you are not alone

    @Miizle I'm proud to be called a Nexpert! Love it! Ah 2015 then, the big year before the turning point of 2016. 2014 and 2015 had 5 Major Convergences (The one vaguely from "Childhood" in April 2014, from 1775 in August 2014, 1999 in March 2015, 2002 in April 2015, and one in July 2015 that helped us streamline focus on Equality, Inclusion and Compassion. All of which were versions of us coming together into our current bundle of realities uniquely focused on global karmic healing. According to Michael, there are thousands of parallels that are actually far worse than our own. So thus far we've been making some constructive, progressive choices (besides the breakdown from November 2016, though even then Michael says most of the parallels where Clinton was elected are actually en route to war). Let's keep doing that. Weirdly, I found TLE when I was in the middle of my 3rd Internal Monad at Age 14 turning 15, and it was because of my deep searching the google image results for information on Body Types. I'm not sure why exactly then would've been "my time" to find it. Finding TLE put me through an accelerated path of evolution though, particularly once I branched off some versions of me towards breakdown and suicide in 2016. Although perhaps I was on a trajectory towards the raging incident that would kill my dad, and my Essence nudged this version of me towards TLE so that at least one parallel wouldn't move towards that. I have no clue though, besides incidental choices, why I found TLE when I did. I can relate to the experience of perfect mind blowing comprehension only to realize it's wrong. Gah, fucks me up I tell ya.

    You know, you might want to cut yourself some slack for having been born in a world where so many of our man-made systems have become dysfunctional and unsustainable. You are here to help change things (I mean that in the obvious way, because you care so much), but it's not going to change overnight. There is a movement called veganic farming where farmers try to get fertilizer from plant sources rather than animal ones, but the movement seems to still be in its infancy.

    Yeah, I didn't say we were ignoring or moving away from gender or sex as a form of validation. I just don't want that to be a primary identifier on a profile. That's not a Michael Teachings thing, that is just my personal preference because I think it is messy territory. I will talk to Michael more about this because I need to understand what they are identifying when they say someone is "male" or "female" and what terms they would use for the spectrum of genders. Right now, we don't have a standard range of terms for me to offer up. But yeah, if someone asks, Michael will always respond as best they can.

    I like the idea of the spiral to represent Creative because that symbol goes back thousands of years. From a session on June 11, 2019: Janet: If there is time: what was the origin and meaning of the triple spirals of Newgrange? Spirals draw me in strongly, which is why I love the Artisan symbol Troy’s friend developed. MEntity: We actually suggested the spiral design for Artisan in part because of the various Artisan cults/tribes that have formed across history. The spirals you mention happen to be remnants of one of those cults/tribes that had a strong population of Artisan fragments and nurtured a strong Artisan theme in their communities. The spirals tended to have multiple layers of meaning from recognizing the creative force within galaxies to representation of creativity having effects that cascade outward from creator, etc. Janet: “Within galaxies”? Was there influence from non-terrestrials? Perhaps influence from a POD of Artisans? Oh, now I recognize the spirals as connected to the shape of some galaxies. MEntity: Within Galaxies, as in the natural force that gives birth to order as it rises out of an explosion of chaos. And yes, there was non-terrestrial influences that were seeded around 7500 years ago and integrated within the lineage of these Artisan cults. ### end of excerpt

    In general, I can understand the shift away from Male/Female terminology for energy. While as Maureen said, it's worth keeping in mind/mentioning the correlation between the concepts of male/focused, female/creative as a pattern that exists, I can see how the change will be helpful in future clarity in regards to the teachings. I'm up for it. I am a bit dubious of the use of "Creative" as it doesn't strike me as the contrast to "Focused," it's not a direct antonym at least. But, I don't have an alternate term for the more diffuse energy side of the spectrum, and I know that those terms have some precedent in channeling, so I guess that's the way to go. I agree with Janet on maintaining some form of identifying sex or gender in the relationship descriptions as appropriate. It may be outdated in a farther future, but at present it is still a common, useful piece of identifying information in many cases (i.e. "deceased grandfather" is more specific than "deceased grandparent"). From what bits I've seen, it's also one of the most asked for descriptors when people inquire about relationships and past lives and such, so having it included saves a likely frequent extra step of having to ask for it. It doesn't have to have its own heading or slot, but it's still useful to include in the description if available and can be qualified/excluded as required. That's my thought at least, though it is Troy's format to do with as he pleases.

    A bit late here, but as a quick response: I'm grateful for a blooming relationship I now have that has opened me up to deep intimacy. I've learned from the Michael Teachings about, well, the power of choice. It is my choice how I want to live and experience, how open or closed I am, whether I need to step back or dive in etc. But I'd say it has helped me move through my 4th IM earlier and quicker, which has been hard but ultimately fulfilling for me, as it reflects my progress in maturity. As for this community specifically. I'd say I've learned how to discern between speculation and verity- and between my and others perspectives. Which hasn't exactly been easy, but has helped with reality checks and some improved relationships.

    I have updated the topic list, simplifying it to show only suggestions for which an appropriate setup question could be determined. I have added comments to all the suggestions that are NOT in this list to identify what is needed to make the suggestion usable. And I've locked some very old suggestions that need to be redone as new suggestions made in a way that the topic can be introduced to Michael appropriately for a 1- to 2-hour session. I will be removing these old suggestions -- or moving them to another forum -- sometime soon. This was necessary to make this forum more useful to Troy when he needs to select a topic. I suspect we'll try to do another poll soon to see which of the existing suggestions gain support for possible sessions in 2020. I'm pretty sure we completed the top 3 session ideas from the last poll we had back in 2017. Please think about new topics you may suggest based on more recent sessions. Many of the suggestions are quite old at this point.

    I don't think the terms are supposed to be antonyms or opposites, not even polarities in this case. Out of Creativity can come Focus and out of Focus can come Creativity. I (personally) like these terms precisely because they don't pit each against the other. It isn't like Positive and Negative where we aim for one over the other. This is kind of what I mean about moving past binary paradigm. "Focused/Creative" isn't binary.

    Well, it's apparently come to this, that something I have advocated for a very long time, seems to have a very, very ugly side i had not realised before. For as long as I can remember, i have always tried to opt for the organic options if possible when buying something, for the sake of my own health, but also the planet's. I have only recently realised, when starting to try and grow my own veges and berries, that a lot of the organic fertilisers sold are actually full of animal parts. Sometimes literally listed as "blood and bone". Makes me want to puke. So when we buy organic veges, or organic whatever, from the shop, we might actually be unwittingly supporting slaughterhouses and the meat industry. And of course dairy and battery chicken farms for manure. I saw a local garden centre selling compost by the scoop and they'd written in the sign it had pig manure in it. Would it actually be the more ethical choice after all to not buy organic?? Breaking my heart. There's of course no knowing if those products have animal fertilisers, too, on top of the chemical fertilisers and a cocktail of pestisides, herbisides, fungisides and the lot..... FUCK THIS, I thought i was doing a fairly good job buying ethical.

    I'm grateful for my family and friends, alone time, and this community, of course. Before I found Troy and his community, all I had were a few Michael books I cherished and read over and over. I remember reading MFM and feeling envious of that little group that would gather and speak to Michael, wishing I had others to talk to about it. Fast forward and I was able to do exactly that -- attend one of the Great Gatherings in New York and commune with not only Michael but many "old friends." I love you all. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Troy, thank you for sharing the December report so soon! I realize I have already been working on what is described below throughout this year. "This realization is not about adding another pressure on you, but about sharing the pressure you thought was only on you. Let others in. Talk to others. Ask others if they need help. Ask others for help. Play with participating in a broader spectrum of experiences by being experimental and taking risks in reaching out. In short, play with being more of who you are, not less."

    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.

    To the best of my knowledge , meat consumption is growing by ten pro cent a year globally. Also there are amazing organic plant based fertilasers that we're developed initially for canabis farming but are now in any garden center. Personally I buy my vegetables from friends or make do with what I manage to grow.

    The session tracker and other management calendars are manually updated and sometimes not current. However, you can always find your own list of appointments even if they have not yet been posted to a calendar. Use the option to "Schedule a session" to start. Select your correct timezone in the popup window. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: the time zone selected will convert appointment times from the Eastern US time zone (where Troy works) to your own time zone. So if you want to see your appointments with your local time, always be sure the time zone is correct for you. (For some people far from the Eastern U.S., this can mean a change in date, not just time.) Select the "Log in" option in the top left corner of the Scheduling menu. V Log in using the same email and password that you use when you book a session. Now your name will appear in the upper left corner. Put your cursor over your name to see a drop-down menu. Select the "My Appointments" option. Now you will see a list of all your appointments with times from your own time zone. Not only can you verify the time but you can reschedule the appointment as well! Tip: For rescheduling, start by pretending you're going to book a new appointment so you can see available dates and times. Once you've found something available, log in and open your appointments. Then choose the reschedule option on the one you want to change. Additional Tip: When the U.S. changes to or from Daylight Savings Time (currently on the first Sunday in March and November), there can sometimes be a 1-hour wobble in time conversions. If you have an appointment in the week following the time change, it is wise to double check your appointment time against the current session tracker. If in doubt, contact TeamTLE via a support ticket.

    Thank you, I had never heard of her before. What an amazing voice, and i love her energy, something about her face is just glowing and transferring beauty from within and beyond. This is making me really miss classical music, in a way that i never pursued it, or even wanted to pursue it. I long for the immersion in that older European culture, every now and again i get this feeling... Oh to be a classically trained what-ever, studying in an 18th or 19t century classical building with large gardens and tall linden trees... Simple sophistication , music, art, philosophy, literature, history, biology... Sometimes I just miss that hassle free, noise free era or the idea of it. Slow time. Appreciation of soft formality in art and science, coupled with inspiration and discovery. I think (and i've never realised this before), it's actually this what i love about European buildings and what i miss when i say i miss cities with some history. It's mostly neoclassical architecture that i love, really, and it's not even the architecture that i love but feeling the neoclassical spirit. Thank you for, if very indirectly, making me realise this. Maybe I should try to bring this spirit home. I think this would help fix something.

    [Excerpt from private session by DianeHB, posted July 19, 2015.] MEntity: ... When you feel you are "taking things personally," it is because you have become Identified with something. Passion Mode is a means of relating that allows one to merge with what or who one is giving one's energy. In the Positive Pole, this allows one to learn more about herself, and to experience Self-Actualization. You expand in your form by allowing yourself to be another. However, when you lose your form, or lose yourself in that other form, you have become Identified. You are no longer learning about yourself, you have lost yourself. ... The key here is in simply not losing yourself in it. Let it matter to you. Learn how to navigate this new territory of negotiation and favors. Learn about your capacity to uphold integrity while adapting to difficult circumstances. This allows your Self-Actualization and keeps your Clarity. There is going to be stress, but when the stress shifts into pain and discomfort, it is likely due to your losing yourself in it, rather than expanding from it. You can shift your energy in a moment by reminding yourself that what you are doing is part of the work, which is part of you, but does not define you. ... I CAN DO MY JOB WITHOUT BEING MY JOB. I CAN DO MY WORK WITHOUT BEING MY WORK. ### End of excerpt You may see the context and discuss this session in the original post. See: Stress and Passion Mode.

    Thank you @Troy. It will be interesting to see this play out, however it plays out. I also appreciate getting this Energy Report early and the Overleaves for next year. It feels like Michael is giving us a preview and that helps me understand what I am perceiving a little easier. Things seem to be intensifying and speeding up, and I have been seeing 'signs' of moving away from Self-destruction in many areas of my world, the world I perceive. I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about humanity as I watch the impeachment hearings and we see clear examples of good people who value our democracy standing up to the lies and corruption and greed. We haven't seen too much of that recently as fuckface and his criminals have dominated the news/tv screens. Just seeing how Adam Schiff is conducting the proceedings is reinforcing what competence, dignity and focus look like. And of course, Nancy Pelosi is such a role model. Sharing my good feelings with you all here on TLE also makes me feel better, stronger, more whole. Loving you, loving the world, loving life.

    Belief is not required. lol Michael isn't saying that your personal choices are directing all of humanity. They are directing our tiny part of humanity. They are saying you are a part of humanity. You are making choices along with everyone else and all of those choices add up. When you choose to block yourself from the world and refuse to recognise your part in it or reject the idea that you matter, well... those choices matter, too.

    OMW - Aug 17, 2013 - The Next Step Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] Hello to everyone. We are here, now. We can begin our discussion on the chosen subject. [MEntity] Based on the subject of interest today, we will share with you a way to understand the process and progress for any endeavor for fulfillment of a plan, ideal, vision, transformation, goal, relationship, career, etc. There is little variation among the processes and progresses of any aim. [MEntity] As with all processes and progression, there are 7 Steps or Stages. Many may already be familiar with these in a basic way, but we will expand upon these today in a way that may help you more directly in your own process and progress. THE SEVEN STAGES [MEntity] The 7 Stages are fairly simple: Initiation, Discernment, Stability, Disruption, Healing, Gratitude, and Neutrality. [MEntity] Anything or anyone to which you commit will take these 7 Stages for your process and progression into that commitment. There are rarely any exceptions to this. [MEntity] Depending upon the length of time in the commitment, these 7 Stages may be cycled through many times, indefinitely, in various degrees of intensity, demand, and obviousness. [MEntity] This is only in terms of COMMITMENT, not the fulfillment of the commitment. [MEntity] In other words, if you are trying to break a habit, that process is a commitment, but once that habit is broken, the commitment is fulfilled, and the stages end. [MEntity] If you are committing yourself to a long-term relationship, once the relationship is embraced, the stages of commitment are completed. [MEntity] You are "done" with the challenges of that commitment, the efforts through the stages, and there is usually no "going back" then. [MEntity] Are all of you familiar with these stages? [Diane_HB] Sounds familiar [Janet] I think so, but not in this context of fulfilling a goal [Nadine_AP] i think so [GeraldineB] I don't know how Stability and Disruption play out [Bobby] Stability would come before Disruption though? [GeraldineB] apparently [MEntity] We will expand on each, briefly: [MEntity] INITIATION - the start of the effort of commitment. [MEntity] We will use the example of the commitment to "lose weight." [MEntity] The idea then is to lose weight. It is the start of the general direction. [MEntity] DISCERNMENT - the clarification vital to the fulfillment of the commitment. [MEntity] The general idea is focused down to how one will lose the weight. A plan is made. [MEntity] STABILITY - the implementation of the clarified efforts necessary for the fulfillment of the commitment. [MEntity] The individual is now working out, dieting, and sticking to the goal. [MEntity] DISRUPTION - stability is shaken up by an outside force or internal obstacle [MEntity] HEALING - the disruption is addressed, confronted, dealt with in a productive and healthy way. [MEntity] The failing and setbacks over the holidays are put into perspective and taken for what they were (a matter of simple, joyful indulgence), and there is a return to the momentum of commitment. [MEntity] GRATITUDE - the appreciation of the necessity for all that has come to be a part of the process and progress of one's fulfillment of the commitment. [MEntity] This is when it is noticed that the efforts are "paying off," that the setbacks, obstacles, and challenges were only a PART of the process, not the derailing of the progress. [MEntity] The experience of the holiday distraction is learned from, and ideas more aligned with the commitment are decided upon for the next holidays, knowing that even a failing to do so will not be "the end" of the commitment. [MEntity] NEUTRALITY - the final fulfillment of the commitment, or a necessary break from the efforts of the commitment. [MEntity] That is a brief synopsis of the Stages of Commitment that are relevant to your understanding where you are in your own processes and progress of fulfilling a commitment. [MEntity] Keep in mind that, in terms of the subject of this workshop, your "next step" may be a part of one of these stages, and not necessarily parallel to the next stage. So, "next step" here does not mean "next stage." [MEntity] Your next step will be a customized and unique ingredient of the process and progress through these 7 Stages, and one fragment's next step is not the same as another's, even as all fragments do still go through all of the same Stages. [MEntity] Do you understand? [GeraldineB] no [MEntity] Geraldine, for example: [MEntity] The person making the commitment to "lose weight" may be in Stage 3, Stability, of her process through to losing weight. The Stage of Stability can last a great length of time. She or he may be on a roll with keeping up with exercise and thoughtful diet. As a PART of sustaining that Stability, it is not always a matter of doing the same things over and over. He or she may find that sticking to the diet and exercise is going well, but is now concerned about lack of variety, repetitive routines, and realizes he or she will probably lose momentum if stuck in such routines. [MEntity] This is not the same thing as Disruption, the next STAGE, as Disruption truly interferes with the momentum. Instead, this is a matter of this fragment determining the "next step" in terms of sustaining Stability. [GeraldineB] thank you, I get it [Maureen] It's like a "side-step" [MEntity] So she decides to move off of the treadmill and run the park's paths. She decides to learn more about what options there are for food choices. [MEntity] Her "next step," then, was to implement Variety. [MEntity] This will not stop the Disruption from coming, but that understanding of the necessity for Variety will be a final part of the set of ingredients when commitment is fulfilled and concluded. [MEntity] QUESTION FOR STUDENTS: can you assess where you think you may be in your process of commitment regarding your focus? [GeraldineB] I'm in Discernment [ClaireC] Initiation, for me. [Janet] I have a longer term goal. I think I'm in the Discernment stage and may be there for awhile. [Nadine_AP] I guess I'm more or less lost right now in my process - probably discernment. [Maureen] I'm "stuck" in Discernment -- I think. [Bobby] Even though mine seems like a fairly new endeavor, I feel like I've experienced all of these to some degree anyway [MEntity] If there are no more responses, we will continue. [Diane_HB] Disruption, I think [Diane_HB] Or possibly Discernment still [AnnH] I am stuck in discernment. [Maureen] popular stage... [Nadine_AP] lol [GeraldineB] we are good at plan-making, but not so good at execution [AnnH] I can find all kinds of ways I can't implement [Maureen] I can't even get my head around the plan... LOL [Nadine_AP] Maureen,same with me [MEntity] What we will share now is the greater dimensions of each of these Stages so that you can understand the underpinnings of each Stage. Comprehending the underpinnings of each Stage can help you to better clarify where you are in the process, and are keys to helping you move through the process with greater ease, helping you to both make breakthroughs and to clarify your next step. [MEntity] We might term these greater dimensions and underpinnings as STATES. [MEntity] So, Initiation is a STATE OF POTENTIAL. [MEntity] When you are in the Initiating Stage, you are in a State of Potential. Nothing is defined, refined, clarified. You are exploring your options and will tend to have your ideals, projections, and expectations intact. [MEntity] Think of this in the same way one might enter a relationship. This is the state similar to "falling in love." This is not to say that it will feel like "falling in love," but that falling in love tends to bring with it a great open-ended world of potential. [MEntity] Only the general intent is here. [MEntity] Many do not like to leave this State. [MEntity] Many will hold their intentions in this State for the entire lifetime. [Nadine_AP] I think I'm trying to pass from Initiation to Discernment then [AnnH] Yep [Maureen] I feel too shitty to be in Initiation ...it sure doesn't feel like "love". [Nadine_AP] oh, maureen, it doesn't in my case either! It's a little bit distressing, because I can see the potentials but can't figure out how to get there [Maureen] Unless it's the all-consuming, stalking kind... [GeraldineB] Maybe, you have to break your goal down into smaller chunks that ARE do-able [Maureen] That's the advice I give to Clients! [GeraldineB] LOL [Nadine_AP] I'm trying [GeraldineB] Healer, heal thyself [Maureen] LOL [MEntity] "Falling in love" is very different from Love. Falling in love may be experienced as a pleasant state, but it is full of projections, expectations, and ideals that make it relevant for comparison to the STATE OF POTENTIAL. [MEntity] If you prefer a different comparison, it can also be like the "world after graduation," or "the day with no plan," or for some of you, like entering a "haunted fun house in the dark." [Maureen] LOL [Diane_HB] lol [MEntity] We chose the comparison to "falling in love," but the STATE OF POTENTIAL also can be like "falling into fear." [Nadine_AP] lol...falling in love always felt like falling into fear for me... [MEntity] And then there is that. [MEntity] The STATE OF POTENTIAL is wrought with options and mixes and directions, all variations of Love and Fear. [Maureen] Michael -- do the Attitudes affect how one can get through the Stages? I can see how the Attitudes may play out. I'm a Realist -- I see so many factors that it’s daunting. [AnnH] Me, too, Maureen. [ClaireC] It's really easy for a Spiritualist to stay in Potential forever. [MEntity] Understanding the State of Potential can help one to do two things: reclaim yourself as the source of the creation of your potential, and then to consciously choose more toward Love. [MEntity] This removes the "falling" part, and helps to put you back into the role of Creator. [Nadine_AP] How could I consciously choose more toward Love? [MEntity] Nadine, we will address questions shortly so that we can address each of you more personally. We suggest noting your questions as we go along, so we can return to them with you. [Nadine_AP] okay [MEntity] So, for some of you in a STATE OF POTENTIAL, in the Initiation Stage, your next step is some variation on CHOICE. [MEntity] The most effective way one can move into a next step when in the Initiation Stage, and in a STATE OF POTENTIAL, is to SIMPLIFY. [MEntity] Bring everything down to the simplest of facts, focus, and intention. [MEntity] When in the STATE OF POTENTIAL, it is helpful to go silent, to be still, to stop all distractions, and sit down with yourself and your intention. [MEntity] Physically write down your intention and all of the scenarios or potential, and you will see that it may not be as overwhelming or daunting or consuming as you thought or felt. [MEntity] What tends to happen is that one is in a STATE OF POTENTIAL, in The Stage of Initiation, and then thinks that the Discernment Stage is what comes next. [MEntity] This is the equivalent of stating that you have realized you can choose whatever you want, but have no clue from what options are you choosing. [MEntity] This is quite similar to how the Internal Monads work, in that if one exits the previous state/stage in a negative pole, then the next will remain there, as well. [MEntity] So if one does not consciously assess what options are available, what directions are preferred, what ideal is of interest, what results are being sought, etc., then the Discernment Stage tends to only emphasize everything that is lacking in potential. [MEntity] The daunting aspects are highlighted. The intensity is heightened. The doubts are amplified. [MEntity] Imagine that you have decided you want to create a beautiful dress, but completely bypass the process of exploring and narrowing down the possible fabrics from which to choose. You now move into the next stage and it becomes emphasized what you have not done and cannot do. [MEntity] However, if you have your 10 fabrics out in front of you and then move into the next Stage, you can now Discern, choose the ingredients that will become the dress. [MEntity] That simplification effort in the first stage as a way to sort out the state of potential drastically changes the process of discernment that comes next. [MEntity] This is true of relationships, projects, transforming habits, etc. [MEntity] It can take many years for one to realize that there are vital, but few, criteria for what one truly expects from an intimate relationship. For many years the State of Potential is riddled with the chaos of fantasies, projections, wounding, all of which are then emphasized upon entering the Discernment Stage because the commitment will not work or be fulfilled without those elements addressed. [MEntity] When one has consciously owned the role of source and creator of his or her potential, and then sorts out what is of interest from all of that potential, and uses choice as a way to navigate away from fear and toward love, the Discernment Stage then becomes a matter of refinement, not discouragement. [MEntity] The Discernment Stage is a process of emphasizing What Will Work, and What Will Not Work in regard to the commitment. [MEntity] If the work of sorting has been done, then the emphasis will tend toward What Will Work, though both what will work and what will not are always explored to some degree. [MEntity] And just like the Internal Monads, if you find that you are in a Stage of Discernment overwhelmed with discouragement, you can "go back" to your POTENTIAL and SIMPLIFY as a way to help move you back into refinement and encouragement. [Nadine_AP]: How could I consciously choose more toward Love? [MEntity] Sometimes the experience of choosing more toward Love is so unfamiliar (at least in terms of consciously doing so) that it can be much easier to simply NOT CHOOSE Fear. [MEntity] By "not choose fear," we mean that you actively utilize fear as a source of insight and information, but not as a source of direction or conclusion. [Nadine_AP] yes, that makes sense! [MEntity] If you are worried about the pressures of finance while seeking directions of career, then you have the capacity to resolve the conflict between doing what you CAN do for the sake of income, even as you aim for a more long-term move toward what you love. [Nadine_AP] Wow, that helps a lot actually! [ClaireC] "Love is letting go of fear" (Attitudinal Healing) [MEntity] In doing something such as this, there is the choice toward love because you are taking care of yourself AS you create, rather than presuming that your taking care of yourself is a defeating move away from other options. [Nadine_AP] I understand. Thank you! [MEntity] We think this may be helpful to consider as a specific response for you, Nadine. We will continue on now for greater context for when you explore this further. [MEntity] Before we continue: how many of you feel you must return to the STATE OF POTENTIAL to SIMPLIFY and clarify? [AnnH] To an extent, yes. [Nadine_AP] I do. [GeraldineB] I don't -- I've got my goal as cut and dried as possible [Diane_HB] Not for the issue I have in mind. [Maureen] I need to return someplace -- because it's not working now... [Janet] No. I have written down my goal and I think I'm good. [ClaireC] I think I'm actually in Discernment now. [MEntity] Geraldine, the goal can be crystal clear, but this is only helpful if the projections, expectations, and fears have been addressed so that the Stage of Discernment is then encouraging, not discouraging. [GeraldineB] Let me clarify -- My Goal is to Stop Smoking. As part of my Discernment, I have a new month's prescription to take of Chantix, an aid to stopping smoking. Plus, this time, I've set a date: August 31, 2013. One of the reasons I'm going to push through this bad habit this time is due to health concerns; so, for me the "choosing with love," would be for myself. Should I add in a request for Essence and Guides to help? as in sending me positive thoughts when I'm wavering? [MEntity] We would agree with your assessment, but we added our comment for those who may think that the clarity of Goal is enough. The goal will draw one forward, but not necessarily toward a fulfilling conclusion, if the POTENTIAL has not been clarified for Discernment. [MEntity] We have gone into detail about this initial stage because this is where many may have to return as a means to move forward toward fulfillment of a goal, but we will quickly describe the remaining States as associated with the Stages. [MEntity] The Stage of Discernment has as its foundation a State of RECIPROCITY. [MEntity] While in the Stage of Discernment, the emphasis can splay widely between discouragement and encouragement, emphasizing what will not work, and what will work, often leaning toward one direction or the other, depending on the work in The Stage of Initiation. [MEntity] A key to the underpinning of this Stage is Reciprocity, or the circuit created through giving and receiving. [MEntity] What many tend to do in this Stage of Discernment is to shut down, recoil, hide, enter into waves of shame, embarrassment, or even instill a kind of taboo against the sharing of where one is in the struggle toward Stability. [MEntity] This is a Stage where many give up. [GeraldineB] oh, I know that one [Diane_HB] me too [Maureen] I;m too embarrassed to say "me too" -- LOL [Diane_HB] lol [GeraldineB] LOL [ClaireC] lol [AnnH] yep [MEntity] However, the STATE OF RECIPROCITY is enhanced through the practice of giving and receiving, helping others to do what you wish to do, joining with others in similar directions, asking for help in your progress, allowing the help, etc. [MEntity] In an intimate relationship, it is about addressing what has come as differences between you that describe what is working and what is not working. [MEntity] So for some of you in the STATE OF RECIPROCITY in the Discernment Stage, your next step is some variation on COMMUNICATION. [MEntity] The most effective way one can move into the next step when in the Discernment Stage, and in a STATE OF RECIPROCITY, is through SOPHISTICATION, the refinement of choice. This means you no longer simply react, do as you always do, or unconsciously push forward. It means you take a moment to think, to feel, to make a choice from consciousness, not defense or habit. [MEntity] The STATE OF RECIPROCITY and the Stage of Discernment is about learning, putting into effect, and implementing, all of which require communication and growing sophistication. [MEntity] Remember that the Stage may be completed, but the State carries forward, so RECIPROCITY will continue to be a part of the commitment, meaning that communication will end up being a vital ingredient in the fulfilled commitment. [MEntity] Giving and Receiving. [MEntity] More quickly then, the remaining Stages: [MEntity] The Stage of Stability is supported by the STATE OF KARMA, or CAUSALITY. [Janet] I actually think I'm in Stability rather than Discernment now. [MEntity] This is where one truly begins to see the results of actions and efforts, and those actions and efforts are tweaked, modified, corrected, observed, etc. [MEntity] Before this, most of the commitment was in a more idealistic place, while Stability brings with it the momentum and realization. [MEntity] Next steps here tend to be related, then, to EFFORT. [MEntity] And the effectiveness of that effort is supported by DEVOTION, which is the recognition that one's efforts are toward something of great value and worth. [MEntity] The Stage of Disruption has as its foundation a STATE OF SURRENDER. [MEntity] This is, basically, the embrace of the fact that "shit is going to happen." [MEntity] Sometimes there are forces greater than you that you cannot control, or that you allow to take control, in a way that interferes with your intentions. It happens. [MEntity] Next steps here tend to be related to HONESTY, and that honesty is supported by AFFECTION, or the capacity to empathize, be kind, gentle, patient, etc. [MEntity] The Stage of Healing has its foundation a STATE OF PRESENCE. [MEntity] This is where you own your mistakes, own your process, your responsibility, your power, your intention, your choice, etc. Blame and excuse are useless here, and you recover from what knocked you for a loop. [MEntity] Next steps here tend to be related to FORGIVENESS, and that forgiveness is supported by EVOLUTION, or the meaning that you attribute to your experiences. [MEntity] The State of Gratitude has as its foundation a STATE OF NON-ATTACHMENT. [MEntity] This is an ironic and paradoxical State where you begin to detach from that which has been a commitment, and experience it as a PART of you, not YOU. It is another thing, another person, another step, but they are a part of you, not YOU. [MEntity] Next steps here tend to be related to APPRECIATION, and supported by WHOLENESS, or the awareness of being greater than the sum of parts. [MEntity] The Stage of Neutrality is supported by the STATE OF MOTIVATION. [MEntity] This is where one re-examines motives and intentions from a broader perspective. [MEntity] When this comes between other Stages, next steps tend to be related to REGROUPING, digesting the experiences, and this is supported by STRUCTURE. [MEntity] When this comes as final stage/state, it is a an assessment for whether to cycle back through the Stages, or to build upon those original motivations, creating new structures from that. [MEntity] Knowing these descriptions can help you to understand where you are in the stages, what states have been carried forward, and what keys are necessary for next steps and the support for those next steps. [MEntity] Did your sense of where you are in your progress change by seeing the details for each stage/state? [Janet] Yes, absolutely. [ClaireC] Absolutely. [AnnH] not exactly. but i often get caught up in discernment, anticipate disruption and give up [GeraldineB] it enlarged [MEntity] Do you feel you can orient yourself better toward an encouraging process? [GeraldineB] yes, I do [AnnH] yes. [ClaireC] Yes, and to recognize progress. [GeraldineB] I can at least let go of past "failures" -- treat this as a brand new experience [AnnH] yes [AnnH] good point, g [ClaireC] Geraldine, think of it as a U-turn, not a failure. [MEntity] We will open the floor to your questions now, but we encourage each of you to assess your own progress and process. [GeraldineB] I did have an earlier question [GeraldineB] Question: Is there an advantage for setting a NEW habit versus breaking an OLD habit? [MEntity] Our response to this is Yes. Breaking a habit can always be included in the process toward creating something more beneficial, but to aim only toward breaking the habit can similar to stating that you wish to travel, but never getting off of the train. [MEntity] It is nice to have a destination in mind. [AnnH] I find I easily get disracted, hopeless and overwhelmed. What do I need to assess and at what stage? [MEntity] These are symptoms usually associated with not leaving the STATE OF POTENTIAL, and remaining in the first stage, or of leaving that first stage in a "negative" way to carry forward into further stages. This means that the solution is simplicity and choice. [MEntity] We do not seek to minimize the overwhelm or hopelessness or distraction by stating that the solution is so "simple," but we state this as a matter of those more challenging qualities being a part of the spectrum of possibilities from THE POTENTIAL, and they do not have be given such emphasis by choice. [MEntity] Note that these exist, that they are with you, but you do not have to choose them (as in, presume they are more important to honor than enthusiasm, willingness, importance, etc.). [MEntity] You may not feel you can choose against those emotions and surges in the body, but you can, and it is a matter of practice. It is your Right. [MEntity] For help in your next steps, it may be of benefit to consider the difference between honoring your feelings and feeding them. [AnnH] aha--lol, yes. [MEntity] Choose not to feed them. Let them remain, do not reject them, but do not feed them. As you make different choices, your feelings will eventually feed on what you choose, and this begins the transformation. [MEntity] So, your next step is to learn how to choose your food, and to choose who/what to feed in you. [MEntity] This is simplistic, but fair. [Maureen] I can't even formulate a question because I feel too discouraged at this point. I'm normally optimistic about most everything -- so this state is very uncomfortable for me. [Maureen] I guess that's more of a statement than a question. [MEntity] Then your next step would appear to be into the Stage of Neutrality. You must step back. [MEntity] Not only have you lost your Motivation, but you may have forgotten the value of the pursuit altogether. [MEntity] In this case, you would want to keep in mind that Neutrality is not giving up. It is not stopping. It is not failing. It is important. [MEntity] Your next steps then are to stop trying, but with the intent to regroup, not give up. [Maureen] That sounds good Michael -- I'm tired of trying. [MEntity] Yes, and that is okay. Again, it is your Right. It is not defeat; it is a Right. Stop. Come back to it. It will be there. [Maureen] Thanks [MEntity] In some cases, this Neutrality must be modified from complete halt to, at least, giving some amount of attention and effort to the aim, so that will be up to you to consider the ratio for what and how the direction is accommodated without so much consuming of the self. [MEntity] Our brief responses in this format are not entirely helpful or effective, so we encourage each of you to communicate further in private with us on your progress, if you choose to do so. [Diane_HB] I think I'm in Discernment with my goal of improving eyesight. I'm still having a difficult time finding a process that works for me...after 10 years of trying on and off. I think I'm not seeing enough of a benefit to work harder at it -- the practices (particularly the one about keeping my glasses off) conflict with my lifestyle and personality. But I don't like it when my eyesight starts to get worse, so I keep trying. Any comments would be appreciated. [MEntity] You are in the Stability Stage. Your commitment now is a matter of CAUSALITY, experimentation, tweaking the process of effort. In this Stage, you would want to customize what is being learned to accommodate how it best works for you. During this Stage, you may also find that your eye sight is not such a bad thing after all, and that you discover that your embrace of this as part of you is far more accurate to the healing you were seeking. [Diane_HB] Yeah, sometimes I wonder if I really need better eyesight. I just don't want it to get worse. [Diane_HB] Maybe that's what I can commit to -- maintenance. [MEntity] So your next step may be to continue your practice, your Devotion, but without the looming ultimate perfection or failure. [MEntity] Maintenance is a healthy term for how to move forward. [MEntity] We will conclude with a question from Claire. [ClaireC] Does one have to stick with a new programme until Stability is reached or not reached before abandoning it and going back to Discernment? e.g. a new diet? [MEntity] We would not say that one "has to," but that it is a valuable part of the process. If you come to Stability, you can always tweak, replace, or complement your efforts. [MEntity] For example, if one were to start exercising, the strengthening of the muscles and the stretching of the tendons can bring aching for quite some time, leading one to consider scrapping the intentions. But once stability is reached, it is realized that the aching was symptoms of benefit, and that the exercises can be altered, replaced, mixed up, etc., but not necessary to halt. [ClaireC] Yes, that's true. In the case of diet, it's not always evident if it's "working", I'm wondering how long changes in food take to affect Stability. [MEntity] Only if one finds that the path is harming the self does one want to consider halting the progress. [ClaireC] Okay, that's a good guideline. Thank you. [MEntity] In terms of diet, Claire, we suggest considering monitoring for any effects that are claimed as part of the result of the diet, giving it the amount of time you deem willing to give it. [ClaireC] Good advice. Thanks. [MEntity] Sometimes the changes caused by a change in diet are not always pleasant, at first, so understanding that a detoxifying process sometimes occurs can be helpful for some diets, and not scrapping the diet because one is suddenly with cramps and diarrhea. These phases tend not to last long. However, if you find a continued state of distress on the body because of a diet, you may [MEntity] want to, at least, move into Neutrality until you understand if it is harmful or beneficial. [MEntity] We agree that a change in diet can be difficult to monitor for benefit because the body is so adaptable. [ClaireC] True. [ClaireC] Some people claim to feel great on a diet of junk food. Then have a heart attack. [MEntity] However, there do tend to be physical symptoms that help to give feedback about how one is eating, and this can be helpful for monitoring long-term changes in effect from diet. Depending upon the diet, we would suggest educating yourself about the claims of effects from the diet, and counterclaims. [MEntity] And decide from there. [MEntity] Your next step, then, might be education about the claims and also the counterclaims, or the facts vs the myths. [MEntity] We must conclude here today. [ClaireC] Thank you for the great session, Michael and Troy. [Diane_HB] Thank you Michael! [Maureen] Thanks Micheal and Troy!! [Diane_HB] and Troy!! [AnnH] That was incredibly helpful. Thank you Michael and Troy [ClaireC] Really helpful! [MEntity] Good day to each of you. Regardless of what you decide to do in your next steps, the map we have described in the processes and progress, the states and stages, can be used as a reminder that you are not lost, not defeated, and not failing. You are moving forward as you can, and as you will. You are not done. [MEntity] Goodbye.

    Thanks for the suggestions, @Ingun, and I agree, lots of the transcripts could use some editing, but like @Troy mentioned, doing it at the time would have distracted from the task of just getting the material moved. Since I can't transfer ownership of the post for you to make the changes directly, how about you send me a private message with the fully formatted text and I can repost it with the changes. This may or may not work, since formatting is tricky on the site, but I think it would be a good solution for any sessions that someone finds could use editing, without tasking our small team of volunteers to do it directly for literally thousands of posts. I only speak for myself, though. I don't know whether others will have the time to do this. I'm happy to give it a try.

    Suggestions are greatly welcomed, but just keep in mind that the priority for the small team of volunteers was to transfer and archive thousands of sessions and there are thousands and thousands of entries. It would have been an overwhelming task to format every entry to our liking, especially when we were under pressure at the time to transfer so many articles. I just wanted to bring some context to the picture because there is always room for improvement, but we just don't have the staff or the focus to prioritize these requests. Many entries definitely need editing treatment to improve their format, but until we organize another wave of efforts to sort through every entry and reformat to our liking, I hope you are okay with the wonderful mess we have for now. On the bright side, you have three volumes of channeling coming from TeamTLE and me that will be published! That's where our priority focus is at the moment. So please be patient with us. That's something to look forward to and it will be excellently formatted! XOXO

    I suggest some highligtning up there and space between some paragraphs to make the session easier to read... This is just a short version of the overview from the beginning of the session. 1. INITIATION - the start of the effort of commitment. We will use the example of the commitment to "lose weight." The idea then is to lose weight. It is the start of the general direction. 2. DISCERNMENT - the clarification vital to the fulfillment of the commitment. The general idea is focused down to how one will lose the weight. A plan is made. 3. STABILITY - the implementation of the clarified efforts necessary for the fulfillment of the commitment. The individual is now working out, dieting, and sticking to the goal. 4. DISRUPTION - stability is shaken up by an outside force or internal obstacle. 5. HEALING - the disruption is addressed, confronted, dealt with in a productive and healthy way. The failing and setbacks over the holidays are put into perspective and taken for what they were (a matter of simple, joyful indulgence), and there is a return to the momentum of commitment. 6. GRATITUDE - the appreciation of the necessity for all that has come to be a part of the process and progress of one's fulfillment of the commitment. This is when it is noticed that the efforts are "paying off," that the setbacks, obstacles, and challenges were only a PART of the process, not the derailing of the progress. The experience of the holiday distraction is learned from, and ideas more aligned with the commitment are decided upon for the next holidays, knowing that even a failing to do so will not be "the end" of the commitment. 7. NEUTRALITY - the final fulfillment of the commitment, or a necessary break from the efforts of the commitment.

    So much here! And so relevant to the discussion on @Matt's thread about his diet change--Michael validates what I thought about detoxification and how it affects the body when changes in diet are happening. But this whole session is so clear and helpful, I will return to it again and again. Thanks for the link @Bobby

    [excerpt from TT: 2001-02-02] [ludmila] My mother has senile dementia, depression and age-related schizophrenia and paranoia. She also sees ‘people’ not visible to others. What purpose is served, or lesson learned in being mentally ill? [Michael_Entity] In the same way that a person behaves a certain way when “drunk,” so does a fragment who loses her mental faculties: the experience is the result of loss of inhibitions in many ways, and a lack of the more acceptable social filters that uphold community. Psychic Filters are learned how to be created and implemented in the structuring of the brain during the Baby Soul Ages as a means to preserve community and society and civility. Essence does not lose that lesson and builds it in to every new body after it is learned, but as a body matures, it cannot, in many instances, accommodate the constant instruction for filtering. Beliefs are the primary filters, in general, but there is also a specific “feed” from Essence that allows the body to experience its soul age. In many cases where the symptoms you described are experienced at the end of a life, it is the body’s reaction to a great deal of personal oppression within that lifetime. Its “purpose,” then, is to “show” the Personality the gifts of comprehending freedom on a profound level before exiting. This will allow the transition to be more comfortable and acceptable, as well as the planning of the next lifetime to be of high consideration for including more play. For those around that fragment, the reactions to the fragment in question can be disconcerting as they process this. The symptom described as “paranoia” is often, actually, “comprehension.” “Schizophrenia,” in this case, can be said to be direct addressing of sub-personalities that did not “get a voice” before. The “depression” can be said to be the grieving (another method of comprehending truth) of the loss of various freedoms, now realized. Again, we could delineate this through more levels, and more specifically, but this is a general scenario with which you can help yourself understand the event more comfortably, if you choose.

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2009] [Bobby2] Since there are/were 3 of us present that are from Entity 6 of Cadre 2 may I have any Biographical information that you have easy access to along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity? If that question is too broad, feel free to pick and choose what you think may be helpful. [Michael Entity] It could be said that a common denominator, or theme, among Cadre 2, Entity 6 is that of SENSITIVITY. This Sensitivity can show up in different ways that range from crippling sensitivity to profound healing capabilities. This particular Entity is “touched” by life and experiences in ways that are often difficult to understand by other fragments. This particular Entity is often seen as the “open wound” of the Cadre, where the greatest traumas and extremes are drawn in by the fragments. This openness to life in such a sensitive manner can also lead to an awareness of subtleties that, when harnessed and implemented, can come across as works of “miracles” or profound transformation for those within proximity of that fragment’s life. [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. There is much more that could be said, but we feel this little bit will help add to the understanding of the dynamics of this Entity.
