  1. ENERGY REPORT JANUARY 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) JANUARY landed anticlimactically for most of our students as most are awash in the lingering Self-deprecation of 2020 and the move into the Negative Pole of the Goal of Re-evaluation, Withdrawal. Some have tacked on the 2021 Chief Feature of Martyrdom, as well. And because Chief Features are linked directly to Attitude, there is also heavy exploration of the Negative Poles of the Cynic Attitude, Denigration. This has made for one of the most lackluster, numb, and disconnected “New Years” we have seen among our students. The brush with optimism in December was quickly flattened by the collective wave of realization that nothing will change overnight, that there is still work to be done, and that you are still recovering from the weight of 2020. Remember that RE-EVALUATION is a time of reflection, not a time of pressure or expectation or demand. The power of Re-evaluation comes from the capacity to learn from what one has experienced. If one refuses or denies or ignores the value of what one has experienced, then Re-evaluation falls into Withdrawal. There is no fuel for evolving. And this is key to moving into the Positive Pole of Simplicity. Growth and Re-evaluation are on the same axis for a reason. One cannot be without the other. Growth leads to new experiences and new experiences need to be Re-evaluated and this leads to Growth, which leads to new experiences, etc. Simplicity leads to Evolution and Evolution requires Simplicity. If you look at each Axis, the Goals describe the path to Truth, Love, and Energy/Beauty. The overleaf path to Love is through Re-evaluation and Growth. The overleaf path to Truth is through Discrimination and Acceptance. The overleaf path to Beauty is through Submission and Dominance. Or put another way: The path to Love is through Review and Experience, as one needs to learn not to fear what one does not understand. The path to Truth is through Awareness and Compassion, as one needs to develop the capacity to wake up to and make the connection to the greater truths, rather than only deciding and assuming what is true. The path to Energy/Beauty is through Authenticity and Presence, as one needs to comprehend and account for the consequences of one’s choices and actions. The paths to Truth, Love, and Energy are not complicated, but they do involve many steps and moving parts, so to speak. It is never about reaching a destination, but about expanding in one’s range for each. That range is infinite. And so it is that 2021 is about an emphasis on learning not to fear what one does not understand, and doing so through Review of one’s Experiences so as to make room for new experiences to come. For most of our students at the moment, “fearing what one does not understand” is a combination of the overall effects of the pandemic and the self that one found during the past year of the pandemic. You are entering a period of time where it is vital that you take the very best of what you learned about yourself and about life over the past year. If you have learned that “life sucks” and “what is the point” and “people are morons,” then you are not learning and growing, you are not evolving, you are withdrawing. Your assessments are valid to a certain extent, and this stage is natural and a part of the process, but it is worth your effort to consider the greater truth, love, and beauty of what you experienced over 2020. Life can “suck,” and sometimes the “point” is lost, and often people are “morons,” but the truth does not stop there, nor the love or beauty. And this is what you have the opportunity to learn now. The effects of the Infinite Souls are starting and how you respond to the prompt determines how far and deep the effects can be seen. You may be expecting a showcase and theatrical presentation from those who are hosting Infinite Souls, but that is not how it works. Instead, there tends to be an event that creates a mass common denominator and then this becomes the shared platform from which the Logos is sensed among Essences, whether in contact with the hosts, or not. With or without a Manifestation of the Infinite Soul, once the hosts are set and momentum is in effect, the quantum field, so to speak, through which all fragments connect, is charged with the Logos. That charge has begun. The despair, depression, and anxiety generated over 2020 are valid experiences but they are not your conclusion. They may be a part of who you are and may be challenges that you must account for, but they are not your conclusion. The stupidity, neglect, and disregard of many who have displayed their ignorance, fear, and hate over 2020 are valid observations with very real consequences, but they are not the conclusion of who you are as humanity. They may be a part of who you are and may be challenges that you must account for, but they are not your conclusion. SIDE NOTE: we do not use “stupidity” here as a means of judgement, but as a means of referencing the act of consciously rejecting awareness as a means to justify harmful choices. There are many who “know better” and choose otherwise. The choices are valid in terms of one’s power to choose, but all conscious choices to harm are stupid. As the emphasis is on Re-evaluation over 2021, it would mean that the emphasis is on a path of Love. It may seem odd, but when Truth is threatened, it is often through Love that it can be restored. When Love is removed from the equation, Truth can become quite distorted and deadly. Consider the “truths” of many religions that do not include Love (even as they may claim to do so). Love helps one see and accept the Truth, even in such objective spaces as science. Sciences tend toward Love as a path to Truth as they must consider and include all perspectives, variables, interpretations, and possibilities as a means to get to the Truth, and even then the Truth is allowed to expand beyond itself. This is how your 2021 can be approached, as a recovery of the Truth about yourself, your life, and people. You are not always lost. Life does not always suck. People are not always stupid. Review yourself and your life with the honesty that honors many of the Truths of 2020: The world has been shaken awake in unprecedented ways in an unprecedented number of areas of life that cannot be undone. The world is awake and maturing, regardless of how many would prefer to remain asleep and unchanging. You took care of yourself and survived. You found ways to be with yourself even if you did not want to be alone. You found ways to be with others, even if there were major limitations and obstacles. The collective consequences of collective denial in regard to race, animals, gender, sexuality, environment and all have come to a head that cannot be ignored. You discovered that life is not just about being alive, but about living. We will work with our students over 2021 to expand on the number and clarification of Truths gained over 2020 and how to bring Love to those Truths. For now, we can suggest starting with you. Offer yourself more patience, more kindness, more room, more honesty, less guilt and shame, and less pressure. This can be done regardless of any continued conditions that must be endured through 2021. Basically, offer more Love to the Truth of you beyond the scope of a single definition or scenario. In addition to starting with yourself, we can suggest including others. Offer encouragement, kindness, more room, more honesty, less guilt and shame, and less pressure to those who matter to you. You can expand to those outside of your circle as you can, but for now, it is healing to reach out and tell those you love how much you love them, what they mean to you, and how important their lives are to you. The rest of the year can build upon this. [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: JANUARY 13th - 15th - ENERGY SHIFT - RENEWAL We think this Energy Shift is where most of our students will begin to consider their year to begin taking on more of a pattern that is tangible and not floating in limbo. Individual themes for the year begin here. JANUARY 19th - 21st - ENERGY SHIFT - AWAKENING We think this Energy Shift is building on the previous Energy Shift, but is more about a collective shift, rather than specific to our students. This is a period that looks to clarify a path of Simplicity that can encourage Evolution. This will likely be met with resistance. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JANUARY: I AM LEARNING TO LEARN - It may be helpful for you to lose the assumption that you learn only passively. You also learn actively. This means that sometimes what you learn is not obvious or presented to you as a “lesson,” especially because life does NOT impose or serve or assign “lessons” to anyone. What you learn is on you. What you learn is what you are willing to learn. What you learn is what you choose to learn. This is a meaningful time to reconsider your relationship to learning and to look back over your year to see the truth of what you can learn.

  2. ENERGY REPORT MARCH/APRIL 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) MARCH took a deep dive into RE-EVALUATION. There is little to say about March beyond the fact that most of our students felt this quite distinctly. Exhaustion, fatigue, distraction, irritability, anxiety, over-thinking, hypersensitivity, limbo, etc. March was a walk through Withdrawal, the Negative Pole of Re-evaluation. Withdrawal is a Negative Pole, but as with all Negative Poles, this is not necessarily a “bad” thing. The Negative Poles are not as effective or efficient as the Positive Poles and they rarely feel good, but sometimes they are a way of shutting down and shutting out until one is ready to move forward. Many of our students did not feel like moving forward over March. We suggest re-reading February’s report as we mentioned where our students may find themselves in Re-evaluation. March also carried with it a Nexus that lasted approximately 2 weeks from the 7th to the 21st. For those sensitive to such shifts, this would have brought additional fatigue, distraction, and limbo. This Nexus was a Convergence, which often has sedating effects on those who are sensitive to such shifts. APRIL brings with it a shift of focus into Perseverance Mode. Keep in mind that these shifts do not replace previous areas of focus, but build upon them. Also keep in mind that ALL Overleaves for the year are in effect, even as one may be in focus. Perseverance is a method of moving forward when faced with internal or external obstacles. In our teaching, it is a means of generating and creating purpose on your own terms. In the Positive Pole, there is Persistence or the creating purpose as motivation for moving forward. In the Negative Pole is Unchanging, or the imposition of purpose as a means of moving forward. We are not teachers who describe “purpose” as something that is assigned to you or discovered or pursued. We teach that purpose is inherent in what you choose to do; it is created and nurtured. For example, life, itself, is its own purpose. Loving each other is its own purpose. Learning about yourself is its own purpose. Purpose is another word for “moving forward.” Living, Loving, and Learning inherently move you forward. These are just a few examples. And by “moving forward” we mean that one is inherently evolving in some way that serves all levels of you. No one determines your purpose for anything you do except you. Not even Essence determines this for you. Essence has its own purposes for the life and they will be fulfilled over time, regardless of what you choose to do. When one is in the Positive Pole of Perseverance, purpose is created and nurtured as a way to make the most of whatever is experienced. When one is in the Negative Pole, purpose is imposed and handed to you by someone else and you now press forward with false purpose. If one remains in this Negative Pole, it rarely ends well. As April unfolds, you may find yourself entering the focus of Perseverance Mode through the Negative Pole and feel a wave of purposelessness, pointlessness, lack of direction. For many of our students, this phase may not feel pleasant at first, but will likely give way to an exciting realization that it is time to define and refine and recommit to the purposes you choose for yourself. A shift into Persistence is on the way. On a collective scale, this phase may take more time to move out of the Negative Pole. Many will likely double-down on their purposes as defined by someone else and push forward with unpleasant results. For example, those who are racist may double-down and amplify their push forward because they are unwilling to change what they were taught about themselves. It should also be noted that when in the Negative Pole, Perseverance also determines the purpose of others. This means that there will be those who are not only unwilling to change what they were taught about themselves, but they are unwilling to change what they were taught about what motivates others. They are Unchanging. As for our students, we expect there may be that unpleasant confrontation within that asks why you exist or try or do anything at all, but as you carry the weight of this, we think you will shake it off. The older soul in you will likely find this Negative Pole not worth your focus or energy. Instead, a sense of renewed energy, direction, and meaning behind actions, choices, and directions may begin to unfold and be nurtured. [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: MARCH 7th - 21st: NEXUS - Convergence - a drawing together of parallels themed in RECLAIMING POWER. APRIL 9th: Energy Shift - likely shift into a new wave of Persistence collectively and personally, though it may be matched by those who amplify a stance of Unchanging. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER APRIL: PURPOSE IS NOT A MYSTERY - As you move through April and you move from the Negative to Positive Poles of Perseverance, we suggest that you take it upon yourself to shake off any purposes defined by or imposed by others, including culturally or socially, and look to see how you might refine and define this for yourself. This may be more difficult to determine on a broader scale, but you can begin with smaller scenarios. For example, are you loving someone because you were told you must be in a relationship to be complete, or can you love someone just to love them, whether they choose you or not? Are you rejecting work that could bring you stability and income because you were told your job must reflect your higher purpose, or can your work be for the purpose of caring for yourself while you create other options for other purposes? Do you avoid your creative projects because you were told that their purpose is trivial or can the purpose for your creative projects be to be creative? Are you struggling to understand why you struggle with your health because there must be a purpose, or can your struggle with health be its own thing? When you strip your motivation of imposed or vague ideas of purpose, you often find that you are already fulfilling the most beautiful and meaningful of purposes. You can refine and redefine your purpose, but if you feel pain, numbness, anger, resentment, etc. for what you are doing, it may be because you are letting purpose be imposed, not created, or invited.

  3. ENERGY REPORT AUGUST 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) AUGUST continues with an even deeper dive into the Cynic Attitude. We have not much more to say about that this month than the previous months, so we suggest re-reading the past reports for review on the nature of the Cynic Attitude and its effect in this collective context. This deeper dive into Cynicism may be what helps break people out of the Negative Pole that is rejecting the truth around them. Many have gone so far past the truth that they are “circling back” to see it from a new angle and with that new angle there may be a new level of consideration for acceptance. When we say people have “gone so far past the truth,” we mean that the rejection of those truths is harming them and the wounding is becoming more obvious. When the truth is rejected long enough, it harms. It is often said that “the truth hurts,” but rejection of the truth can cause HARM. There is a difference. HURT describes one’s reaction and resistance to something. The truth CAN hurt, but it can never harm. HARM is a violation of one’s boundaries or being. Someone may be hurt by the truth, but the truth never violates one’s boundaries or being. Sometimes the truth must be handled kindly, carefully, and delivered within an appropriate context and at a pace that can be understood, but it will never harm. To put all of this into perspective: the TRUTH that humans are destroying the planet and affecting the climate in ways that are detrimental to life on Earth is inconvenient, uncomfortable, and may even hurt, but knowing this truth does no harm. However, rejecting this truth is causing great harm. Over time, the rejection of this truth has done far more harm than accepting this truth would have ever caused in inconveniences and hurt. Making changes in one’s life to accept the truth of responsibility for one’s part in reducing harm to the planet may be inconvenient and hurt a little, but it will not harm you. Continuing to ignore the truth and continuing to do what has always caused harm will, eventually, cause so much harm that one MUST take a look at it in a new and different way. This is what is happening on a collective scale now. Most Humans have been ignoring or rejecting the truth to some extent that has continually caused great harm and this has gone on so long that it seems the only thing left to see is the harm. This is why the world can seem so overwhelming at the moment. There comes a time in a Mature Soul World when everyone must address the truths that have been ignored and the harm this has been caused by this. It is up to everyone to see this, allow the hurt, and stop the harm by accepting the truth, making new choices, taking new actions, and being a part of the solution forward. **** [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: AUGUST 16th - 22nd: ENERGY SHIFT - UPDATED VISIONS - This shift appears to bring with it a wave of recalibration or clarity about visions, dreams, the future, plans, etc. It is a time for reconsidering if those dreams will still work, and how to adjust them to work out better, if possible. This is a wave that may bring a high sense of possibility and enthusiasm for efforts that may have once seemed too much to consider. NO NEXUS - We see no nexus in August HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER AUGUST: WHAT TRUTH/S DO I REJECT OR IGNORE - whether one likes it, or not, the truths that have been neglected or ignored or rejected for generations can no longer be neglected, ignored, or rejected. What truth do you think you have ignored or rejected because it was too inconvenient, hurt too much, would cause disruption to address? What truth is no longer able to be ignored if you are truly honest with yourself and Essence? Consider how you might embrace this truth and allow yourself the hurt so as to avoid being harmed or causing more harm.

  4. ENERGY REPORT December 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) DECEMBER comes with a quiet weight of emphasis on Self-deprecation that the year has not experienced. The weight of Self-deprecation has been an undertone for the year that prompted several forms of defense, but December is the first month where our students are simply sitting in this energy. This means December may be heavy with reflection and deep with processes about what has come to pass, leaving many in a state of grief, despite apparent promising paths into the future. This grief and reflection are vital, however, to those promising futures. It would be reckless and unstable to launch with high enthusiasm into a future of possibility without having A) allowed time for grief and reflection, and B) allowed time for honest and clear assessment of what is needed and wanted from the short and long term future. When a marathon has been successfully run, one does not sprint into the next race. One takes time to breathe, catch your breath, throw up, tend to cramps, and hydrate, followed by much rest and relaxation before preparing for the next race. This deep dive into Self-deprecation is likely to last for the first week or two, but a slow return to enthusiasm and possibility comes as processes of grief and reflection are completed. Imagine that you have been in a tug-of-war for a long time and then the rope is released. That is where most who have been aiming for progress and possibility are at the moment. This Self-deprecation phase is a phase of recovering confidence for changing the direction of focus since the focus has been caught up in this tug-of-war for so long. This is not to say the “war” is over, but the shift in direction of focus is profound, even on an individual level. As you experience December, allow room for your moments of release, relief, and grief, and then gather your strength, focus, and power of choice for the new year ahead. As December comes to a close, the Overleaves of 2021 may begin to be felt. The emotional weight of the past year may begin to shift weight off of the heart and bring some levity and light of insight as glimpses of the Truth return to life, focus, and importance. The comfort of the Server energy may begin a low level of healing and inspiration and help return some strength to areas of the mind that had become too dark and heavy over 2020. The Goal of Re-evaluation has already begun to be felt by those who have participated in “the great pause” during the pandemic. This means it is launched in the Negative Pole, WITHDRAWAL, before you find your way into the Positive Pole, SIMPLICITY. The state of Withdrawal will likely last in emphasis through March, but the Positive Pole is accessible at any time. Re-evaluation is a process of Review, or examining something again that was already experienced and examined. On a personal level, this is your life, your relationships, your work, your priorities, your willingness, your adaptability, your strengths… YOU. Re-evaluation allows one to catch up with oneself in both terms of Personality and Essence. The Negative Pole as Withdrawal is when one is in Review or examining something again and experiencing it as sadness, grief, and depression. By now, the process of Review for our students is an ancient practice, and it is often associated with death. Re-evaluation often feels like a kind of death, or state of limbo, and Withdrawal is when one finds themselves so busy that re-evaluation is put off indefinitely, or feeling so small and distant from feeling alive that they anchor themselves in numbness. Withdrawal is that feeling you may find similar to when you make it a goal to clean out that neglected storage room or attic or garage or closet and then open the door to see the mess ahead of you. Withdrawal is you standing in the middle of it all and assessing how you will go about it and where you will start, first. It can be overwhelming, but you will start, eventually. With some effort and awareness, your examinations begin to reveal beautiful things, surprising finds, forgotten moments of possibility, and the sorting moves you into the Positive Pole of SIMPLICITY. Simplicity is when you stop losing yourself in the sorting process and realize it is okay to let go of a LOT of what had been cluttering and weighing you down, and focusing on the absolute priorities of value and meaning to you and your life. 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: DECEMBER 9th - 12th - ENERGY SHIFT - GROUNDING (slow return to optimism) This is an Energy Shift that brings a wave of comforting grounding for many in some way. For our students, this may be a shift that brings about a glimpse of optimism that has been missing for quite some time. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER DECEMBER: BE WITH YOU - This is a period of time for you to be with you, to allow yourself the gift of presence and kindness toward yourself. So much of existence pulls you out into the world in ways that often leave yourself behind or neglected, so allow yourself to create vivid moments of pleasure, bliss, gratitude, appreciation, affection, etc. You can be agitated, angry, annoyed, and active again very soon, but put into practice over December seeing yourself as a gift, as something you are opening up to and excited to receive. It is helpful to be grateful and appreciative of many things in your life, but allow this month to bring that gratitude and appreciation back to who you are because you are at the center of all it and you are what makes everything matter, including you. YOU DID IT - You made it through the past year. You did it. There have been many worse years before this in history and there may come to be worse years in the future, but this is the year that you completed even when it seemed it would never end. You did it. But you did not just endure the year, you created, you gave, you cared, you grew, you found more of you, you loved more, you were loved more, you asked more and received more. We do not say this as a blanket statement. ALL of you who read this will find truth in what we mention that you did. You did it. Give yourself some room to breathe before the new year begins and new cycles unfold to explore. We do not know what is to come, but we know you will be there, and because of this, we know the future is brighter than it would have been.

  5. ENERGY REPORT November 2020 2020 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Sage (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) (and Emotional Center) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Power (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Spiritualist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-Deprecation (emphasized Oct - Dec) NOVEMBER arrives with intensity and density that many will likely experience as profound despair and dismay and others may experience as great relief and renewal. We cannot predict which of these our students may experience, but the line will be clear which “side” one experiences. This November brings a shift of all of the year’s overleaves into full negative pole manifestation or full positive pole manifestation. This means that there will be many who shift into behaviors aligned with Oration, Sentimentality, Subservience, Oppression, Beliefs, and Abasement, while many shift into behaviors aligned with Dissemination, Perception, Devotion, Authority, Verification, and Humility. In other words, many will be expressing lamentation and looking for something to hold on to as an emotional lifeline while others set forth with expressions of empowerment and dedication as a responsibility, not a burden. NOTE: these two “sides” are not related to a win/lose scenario regarding the United States Presidential election. Regardless of how the election proceeds, is won, lost, or derailed, the polarizing, intensity, and density would be scattered among people, even our students, depending on many variables, including location in the world. The election is quite relevant as a catalyst, regardless of where one is in the world, but the experiences on the other side of it speak to many layers of experiences accumulated over the year. For example, some may assume a “win” that brings great relief and renewal would also bring a shift into positive pole overleaves, but some may respond to the win as a chance to catch up with themselves and grieve all that has passed over the year. Some may assume a “loss” that brings profound despair and dismay would also bring a collapse into the negative poles of the overleaves for the year, but a loss may trigger a shift into a courage and strength and reignite the best in that person that had been in limbo, asleep, or obscured over the past year or so. We remind all of our students that what happens TO you does not matter as much as what you DO with what happens to you. If you find yourself in a negative pole spin over November, allow room for this, but look for comfort and contact with those who are feeling the strength and inspiration. COUNT on them. Interlock among each other across your family, friends, community and share emotional resources. This is where the Higher Emotional Energy will be, and there is no truly “negative” pole of the Higher Centers. Allow yourself to be receptive and open and willing to move through your reaction and into action that matters to you. And do it together. If you so choose, of course. [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: NOVEMBER 12th - 15th - NEXUS - Divergence Based on sequences and vectors, this nexus brings with it a split related to climate change and the momentum built by those who are responding to it responsibly and those who are not. This nexus may also bring with it the first voice of an Infinite Soul host with words in alignment with the Logos. This is not a Manifestation, but a potential shift in clarity of voice. This nexus is tied to the United States election as many conditions related to climate change across the world are currently hooked into responses to the results. For most of our students, this nexus is likely to be experienced as the shift described above in terms of positive and negative overleaves and the rush of intensity and density. By “density” we mean that there is either a heaviness and weight to bear or a deep resolve of presence and empowerment. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER NOVEMBER: WINNING AND LOSING ARE TEMPORARY; THERE IS ONLY MOVING FORWARD - Whether one experiences a win or a loss, there is only ever movement forward. There have been many “wins” in the past and many “losses” and none of these have stopped the movement forward for humanity and its continued dance of wins and losses. Regardless of how you experience November, it is all about how, why, and with whom you move forward. Moving forward includes grieving or celebrating, but there are always next steps to take. THE WORLD WILL NOT END, BUT YOU CAN BEGIN - While it is quite true and valid to be concerned about the present and future of earth, humanity, and yourselves, this concern is best served in regard to the quality of life in the present and future, not about the end of it. The end will come on its own, with or without your worry and concern, but the quality of life for yourself, those whom you love, and your fellow Earthlings of varied lifeforms can always be tended more, nurtured more, expanding in compassion, and deeper in consideration, etc. The quality of life for everyone’s present and future is dependent on the quality of care, compassion, and consideration NOW. There are circumstances where quality of life are completely out of the hands of those who are suffering, but as long as you have choice, will, and compassion, the quality of life for yourself and others can always be tended, nurtured, expanded, and deepened.

  6. ENERGY REPORT JUNE 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) JUNE brings with it a slow shift away from the emphasis on MODE and on to the emphasis on ATTITUDE. The emphasis in June will still be about the Mode, but there will likely be moments where the Attitude comes into focus. Sometimes these shifts between emphases come rather definitively and sometimes they come as a transitional mix. June is a transitional shift. This means two things for June: Our students may find themselves in a position to confront whether they are willing to PERSEVERE or if they are resigning. There is no wrong answer or choice here, but for those who choose to Persevere, the rest of the year may come more comfortably and confidently. For those who feel as if they may be ready to resign, the rest of the year may come with confrontations with all that is unwilling to change or grow within you. This is the difference between aligning with Persistence or falling into Unchanging. Our students may also find themselves confronting their relationship to Cynicism, the Attitude this year. Cynicism is the capacity to see the opposite of what is obvious and/or to see what everyone around you is ignoring or missing. The Positive Pole is CONTRADICTION, which means countering the obvious. The Negative Pole of Cynicism is DENIGRATION or the intentional perception to only see or point out the worst. This comes in phrases like “life sucks,” or “what does it matter” or “I can’t make a difference” or “are we really shocked?” These are phrases that not only enforce a lie about reality, but they lock out perceptions that could bring greater insight and perception. June may bring our students into a direct examination of where they may lie to themselves or lock themselves out from broader or higher perspectives. As June unfolds, many of our students will have a chance to SEE what they have never allowed, never noticed, or had been gaslit to miss all of their lives. As CYNIC Attitude comes into emphasis, it will mean that many will be exposed to truths they never knew were truths, not only about the world but about themselves. This may be jarring, disorienting, and take some time to process, but all of these truths are valuable, freeing, and healing. What you and the world do with these truths over the rest of this year matters. This Cynicism is setting in for the world, as well. More truths are in the process of coming forward and many confrontations and conflicts are ahead for how the world may deal with these truths. Putting into practice how you navigate new truths about yourself can help with how one deals with new truths in the world. Keep in mind that truths are not always pleasant, they are not always expected, and they can prompt grief. The navigation through Cynicism this year may not be easy. Many will respond with resignation and refuse to change, many will respond with violence and denial, many will respond with grief and even anguish, but many will also respond with persistence, willingness, effort, and care for how to make the most of truths that are unexpected or unwanted. NOTE: we see the next three months as being particularly turbulent. This is only a possibility at the moment, but we will speak to any challenging world or personal events as necessary. [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: JUNE 11th - 14th: ENERGY SHIFT - Turbulence - potential violence and unsettling events. Note: we have seen pockets of disruption and violence in surprising outbreaks ahead, but we cannot predict IF or WHEN this may happen. We can only see that the potential is there in various cumulative patterns and there are more than the usual number of pockets. This Energy Shift may or may not be where the turbulence comes into expression, but the energy is there for it. JUNE 20th = NEXUS: CONVERGENCE - a merging of parallels that experienced major “setbacks” in some way that are social, political, and/or environmental that are in recovery. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JUNE: THE TRUTH DOES NOT HARM YOU, BUT IT CAN HURT YOU - Truths can often hurt people and it is always appropriate to consider how the truth may affect another person or even yourself, but the truth can never harm anyone. Truths can hurt when they are unexpected, unwanted, or rejected, but it is always better to know the truth in the long run. However, it is important to consider your capacity for accepting, integrating, and comprehending the truth. If you are facing truths that hurt, take your time and process these truths at your pace. Facing the truth at all is the starting point.

  7. ENERGY REPORT MAY 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY continues a move through Perseverance Mode, but may now shift toward its Positive Pole for most of our students. April was likely a rough month for many of our students as the Negative Pole of Perseverance, UNCHANGING, was in effect. This left many of our students uncertain, struggling with focus, feeling purposeless and without direction, or caught up in patterns that they feel were not in their control. May brings potential relief to this as a move into the Positive Pole, PERSISTENCE, becomes more accessible. The shift in seasons can help many to tap into the potential of the Mode at this time of the year, so for those who have access to nature, making contact with the Earth and its beauty can help return you to your Positive Poles, in general. When you are accessing your own Positive Poles, it can help you to access and contribute to the strength of collective positive poles. Perseverance as a Mode this year is almost vital as humans are being bombarded with threats and disruption on such a scale. This kind of daily threat is usually in effect during wars, and while most of our students are not facing pressures that can be compared to those during war, it is still a constant pressure that can wear down the spirit and one’s sense of direction and purpose. We can only say this: PERSIST. Access the positive pole however you can. That is what Persistence is. Remind yourself to continue, allow yourself to look only at your next step, and then your next, etc. Persistence is not always about knowing one’s purpose or direction, but about CHOOSING TO CONTINUE. Because if you choose to continue, Persistence will take you through to that point when possibilities return. Humanity is in a stage of Perseverance at the moment that will shape its future in ways that are unknown to us beyond probabilities. This Perseverance is themed in enduring through the lies to return to a stable state of truth. The information glut that we spoke about for decades is in full effect to the point of large populations choosing what is true over knowing what is true because the flow of information is saturated with misinformation. We know that truth always persists, but humanity must persist, as well. You must persist. If you choose to do so. We remind you that strength is funneled into Perseverance. Perseverance is not a strength, in itself. It must be fueled. This strength tends to come from the nature of your Role and Centering. In this year of Perseverance, one would want to turn to the Server and Higher Intellectual Center as fuel. In this case, Kindness and The Truth are your fuel. Continue being kind to yourself and others and know that the truth is bigger than the lies, pain, and suffering that may dominate the flow of information into your days. [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: MAY 23rd - 25th: ENERGY SHIFT - Turbulence - a highly charged mix of empathy, sensitivity, and overwhelm. We do not know if this is prompted by an event or merely a “bad day”. It will pass, but it may be a rough few days for some. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MAY: REVISIT THE TRUTH - As you move through May, it can be quite helpful, healing, and meaningful to focus on what is TRUE. This means looking at what you know is meaningful, beautiful, what matters to you, who matters to you, and actively engaging in interactions that help fuel your perseverance. Allow these revisits to the truth to help you cut through the noise and keep your strength and focus as your own, as often and as well as you can.

  8. ENERGY REPORT SEPTEMBER 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) SEPTEMBER continues through an exploration of Cynicism, or the perspective of contradiction that tries to see what is the least obvious or that which is opposite of what is obvious. September appears to bring with it a lighter exploration of this and a bit of relief from the heaviness of July and August. The deeper dives into Cynicism were in July and August, so September may feel as if breaking back to the surface to return to one’s own perspective (Attitude). Though lighter and more breathable, so to speak, it may still feel as if treading water. The most significant shift is likely to come toward the end of September as the Chief Feature of the year, Martyrdom begins being emphasized. We will explore the subject of Martyrdom in more detail in the months ahead, but we will point out now that this Chief Feature is all about fearing the loss of control of one’s space, which includes one’s body, autonomy, mobility, freedom, resources, environment, etc. As our students may have already assessed, the world is in a prime position to explore this loss of control. At the moment, we cannot see if this exploration leads toward panic and overreaction or toward assessment and heightened responsibility. For those who wish to aim for assessment and responsibility, there are two major shifts that need to occur, both internally and externally. This shift is one that moves individuals and populations out of positions of passive power where there is hope that someone else will save the day and into positions of active power where there is confidence in all of you who will save the day. The two major shifts that we have seen building among individuals and populations are: ONE: a shift away from dependence on government as something that can exist separately from its population. Even in the best efforts for democracy, the distance between the people and government creates a system that is governed by an oligarchy. True democracy is the only way forward for civilizations to survive and thrive. TWO: a shift away from egoism and a move toward altruism. Civilization cannot survive without a predominant move toward altruism and dedication to resources being used to serve altruism. Egoism has served the Young Paradigm well enough, but it has also created an invidious world that will either have to break out of this pattern on its own or have that pattern broken by the momentum of consequences of egoism. The consequences of egoism are taking their toll now in ways that are escalating and exponential. By around 2050, the momentum is broken in one way or another, but the sooner that individuals shift toward altruism, the less painful the consequences of egoism, and the more comfortable and confident the shift. In short, being actively involved as a part of your own government to the extent that you can and taking an altruistic approach in your choices and actions are the primary sources of empowerment over the next 30 years or so as the world changes. **** [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: SEPTEMBER 11th - 14th: ENERGY SHIFT - REFRAMING TRAUMA - This shift appears to bring with it a way to see and accept trauma of the past, without having to understand or make sense of it. Trauma is not something that can be “let go” or even forgotten to any meaningful extent, but it can be something that is intimately and personally allowed and carried with as much compassion as possible, which is the closest thing to truly healing the effects of trauma. NO NEXUS - We see no nexus in September. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER SEPTEMBER: IN WHAT WAYS DO I/CAN I PRACTICE ALTRUISM - Rather than provide a clever phrase or insight, we would suggest that this thought be posed to the community as a discussion and allow each other to 1. Celebrate ways that altruism may already be a part of the life, and 2. Explore ideas for how altruism can be even more prominent in the life.

  9. From a private session on 11/5/2020: MEntity: Hello to you, Diane. We are here, now. We can begin. DianeHB: Hello Michael DianeHB: After Election Day, I think most liberals agree that the biggest disappointment was realizing that it is such a tight race and that a good half of our country still voted for Trump after 4 years of his administration’s destruction. I’m disappointed that we’re not seeing more progress after all the turmoil of 2020 and people appearing to wake up. What happened in general, from your perspective? Some related questions: Some/many support Trump because of his “conservative” policies and stacking the judiciary with conservative judges. Since so much of conservative rhetoric is based in religious beliefs, how could we even begin to move the needle on that? You’ve mentioned in 2019 that religion is losing its power, but I wonder what the trajectory of that might be? I feel like the reason these numbers are as high as they are, in addition to money like I mentioned, is these damn “Christian values”. Not to mention that “Christian values” tend to have white supremacy, sexism, homophobia, and misogyny baked right in, and all logic tends to go out the window when arguing moral philosophy. How can the Democrats and Progressives modify their message to encourage greater acceptance and enthusiasm for those ideas? How can we reconcile the fear, misinformation, disinformation, and mistrust in the current culture war in the US? What do you see the Older souls not doing enough of to bring people around? MEntity: There are a few things we can say: MEntity: One is that the numbers reflect the number of votes, not the total number of people in your country. There are far more people in your country than votes. Those who did not vote have varied reasons, many of which are disenfranchised or prevented from voting, but they must be considered in the mix of what seems to be represented by the votes. MEntity: Another consideration is that when there is a shift away from a paradigm, those who resist will come forth to make this resistance known in some way. In this case, it was through voting, though other tactics are being used, as well. The King is their icon and archetype for the Young Soul world they expected to remain unchanged. If he is in power, so are they. MEntity: And finally, it important to keep in perspective that your planet and country are now majority Mature Soul. However loud or present those in resistance, they are a minority who will have to learn to adapt. And they will adapt because the older soul ages willingly accommodate differences, even as the younger soul ages may not. We do mention this paradigm/soul age shift as if this as some indicator that you have moved away from something bad and into something good. It is merely different. It will have its pleasures, beauty, ugliness and challenges, too. MEntity: We see many of our students trying to reconcile or justify the behaviors of younger souls by explaining that they are simply fearful and acting out. This is the case for some, but not true for most. They are not afraid. MEntity: The Young Souls are pushing for competitiveness and the Baby Souls are pushing for compliance. MEntity: It is natural for these soul ages to push for these experiences and in most instances these are pushed for in quite personal and meaningful ways. That is not what you are seeing at the moment. MEntity: And this is why many of our students cannot simply rest in their understanding of Soul Age differences. MEntity: Fearful people can be dangerous, but emboldened and fearless people fueled by toxic hate are far more dangerous. MEntity: This is why their presence has more of an impact on our students than would otherwise be the case. MEntity: It is no longer a matter of differences, but of viable and legitimate threat and danger. MEntity: There are many instances of Young and Baby Soul presences throughout history that are not wrought with toxic hate or fear and the push for competition and compliance are beautiful dances of innovation and civil harmony. MEntity: That is not what you are seeing at the moment and that is why this feels heavier than it would seem it should feel. MEntity: So while these numbers are far fewer than the number of Mature Souls or those who aim for Mature Soul perspective, the presence seems more ominous and worrisome because it is. MEntity: We point this out so that our students can honor and embrace the validity of their concerns and trust themselves. There is no need to be fearful, but being aware is helpful for continued movement forward. MEntity: This is not a matter of us vs them, but quite the opposite: it is a matter of mindfulness so that all can move forward. MEntity: If our students ignore or dismiss the validity of threat, the us vs them dynamic is only reinforced. If our students recognize that there are legitimate concerns, then these can be addressed and navigated with care until the fuel of toxic hate subsides. And it will subside. MEntity: The shift away from religious/conservative values will continue. It is inevitable. All acts of resistance that you have seen come forth are efforts to anchor the old paradigm, but every act will have diminishing effects over time. It may be challenging and even painful, but anything that has been implemented to anchor the old paradigm will have no longevity. MEntity: As Mature Souls move into power and authority, those who are resisting will find that there is nothing to resist and that there is greater movement, life, and joy in the room made for everyone, not just for themselves. Religions will continue to be honored. Beliefs recognized as varied and diverse and personal. Competition encouraged. Civility nurtured. But all of this will have a new part of the equation: RELATING/RELATIONSHIPS. MEntity: In every Soul Age paradigm there is a kind of currency that becomes that which everyone is dependent upon to a great degree. The Young Soul paradigm used the currency of Competition and Baby Souls use the currency of Compliance, but Mature Souls use the currency of Choice. Every currency builds upon the next, but in better ways, particularly when the new currency is implemented. MEntity: When Compliance is most effective it is is Harmony. When Competition is most effective it is Innovation. When Choice is most effective it is Empathy. MEntity: To use the new currency, the previous currencies have to be at their best, or in their positive poles, if you will. The differences between the positive poles of each currency is the difference between imposing and inviting. When Compliance is imposed it is Oppression. When Competition is imposed it is Poverty. When Choice is imposed it is Confusion. MEntity: Progress into the new paradigm would mean inviting choice, not imposing it. This may become a clearer message when the fuel of toxic hate has quieted. However, every new currency will go through its negative pole introductions and will always remain as a part of the spectrum of that currency. MEntity: In other words, when Competition is imposed, it can lead to Poverty but Poverty can lead to Innovation. When Compliance is imposed it can bring Oppression, but the Oppressed often bring the shift into Harmony. DianeHB: What does "inviting choice" look like on this scale? MEntity: Choice will likely be forced on those who would prefer not to have more choices or would prefer for others to have fewer choices and this will cause Confusion (or the rejection of making a choice) but Confusion can reset and scramble entrenched ideas and open one to new experiences that lead to Empathy. MEntity: Inviting Choice would be along the lines of ensuring that current choices will not be removed, but that there are more choices when one is ready. It will also include an emphasis on protecting those who would choose differently and teaching the difference between choices that have consequences and choices that do not. MEntity: On a practical level, it would not be quite so specific, but simply be a slow rolling out of choices that are available, protected, and recognized, and an enforcement of availability, protection, and recognition of choices that have suffered interference in the past. MEntity: In the new paradigm, one cannot participate fully in the world without Empathy and the use of Choice. MEntity: Abundance, health, and happiness will shift away from being dependent upon Competition and more toward Choice and Empathy. DianeHB: Thank you for the perspective. MEntity: As for what older souls can do more, we can say the same: measure every action by EMPATHY and CHOICE. If older souls are avoiding the responsibility of choice and not using currency of empathy, they may feel disconnected and distant from the world and within. The more one's choices are motivated by empathy and used to develop or remember one's Relationship to Earth, Animals, MEntity: People, and Self, the more one becomes an invitation for others into the new paradigm of Choice, Empathy, and Relationships. MEntity: We will conclude here for today. Good day to you, Diane. Goodbye, for now. DianeHB: Thank you so much Michael and Troy.

  10. MICHAEL SPEAKS – TRANSCENDENTAL & INFINITE SOUL UPDATES/Q&A – August 22, 2021 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. First, we will say that the likelihood of Infinite Soul Manifestations currently stand at around 92%. This would apply to all candidates. We doubt Manifestations would be synchronized but rather staggered over a series of years. In short, we no longer see very many probabilities where Manifestation does not occur. While Infinite Souls are not saviors or rescuers, they are a reflection of a necessity for course correction, so to speak, and their effects would be as powerful a boost toward course correction that humanity can get. This does not mean that humanity will carry that course to correction, but it is a much higher probability with the fuel of the Infinite Soul. The simplest way we can describe the necessity for a "course correction" is when the trajectory of the species is headed in a direction that is exponentially reducing the potential range of experiences for that species. In other words, it becomes no longer interesting to be human. This is a highly simplistic way of describing this direction, but we think that many of our students will know and sense this apathy, disconnect, and exhaustion spreading among fellow humans. This round of Infinite Souls is likely to bring a massive boost to the value and quality of experience that can be gained through CAUSES. It is a Mature Soul World/Paradigm and for humanity to continue in a direction of value, meaning, and interest, a shift is necessary for moving away from individual fulfillment to collective fulfillment, away from survival and debt and consuming and having and toward safety, choice, responsibility, and sharing. Keep in mind that the Manifestations of Infinite Souls are not with fanfare or announcement or mystical or magical waves of events and signs. They gather their circle of immediate students and teach over time and this spreads out in influence rapidly. The actual Manifestation would be limited to 30 days or less and may or may not be known to anyone outside of the immediate circle, but it is highly probable that if an Infinite Soul is in media spotlight for any reason, they may find themselves in focus for those days Manifesting. We do not know. But keep in mind that the teaching of that Infinite Soul is in effect through the individual host for the entire life in some way. The actual Manifestation is merely the period of time where the crux and clarity of the teaching is delivered and then all that came before or after can be adjusted to that. We think we will be able to identify all active Candidates before the end of 2021, but we have not identified all of them. As for Transcendental Souls, there is no period of activation or manifestation as these are individuals living a "normal" incarnation but rather than representing only their individual fragment of experience, they embody the entire collective experience of their entity. They are the incarnation of the entire entity to some extent, but only one fragment can inhabit the body. They do not swap out over time, for example. Representing the collective knowledge of one's entity tends to move one into positions of social, political, and cultural influence. Transcendental Souls incarnate "all of the time" across history, but they do tend to incarnate in waves near the Infinite Soul. Transcendental Souls seem to be in some of the more difficult regions of the planet at the moment to help anchor some leverage for change that will help the influences of the Infinite Souls messages about CAUSES. Although each Transcendental Soul and each Infinite Soul will have their unique voice, approach, and focus, it seems that one defining factor fueling all of these oldest of souls is the effort to inspire humanity to not shut down and withdraw their sensitivity and caring, but to strengthen it and find directions for it. A CAUSE is a profound commitment to change. It will be more and more difficult for individuals to opt out of being involved in at least one Cause that is focused on improvement for Earth and its inhabitants. These are the teachings we find from the Infinite and Transcendental Souls so far. We have no more names to add to our collection of identified individuals today. ****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN**** We will now take a few questions. We may not be able to respond to all of them. MEntity: Yes, Jon. jon: What can we do to recognize the energy/message of the Infinite Souls, experience and participate in it, and help spread it? In short, what can we do to help? Also, I suppose, what is the % chance of acceptance vs rejection of the message by the world? MEntity: Look to each of the identified Transcendental Souls or Infinite Soul Candidates and consider adding some element of modeling yourself after these individuals. The three elements that we can see consistent among all of these fragments are: conviction, commitment, and cause. Find your Cause, Commit, and nurture your Conviction. By "conviction" here we mean building relationships of support, strength, and sustenance to fuel your commitment to a cause. This does not mean one must march in the streets or take up activism in a way that takes one outside of their life. Every instance of Transcendental and Infinite Soul seems to be pointing to learning how to funnel pain, rage, oppression, setbacks, etc. in a way that brings valuable and meaningful change. So this is more about learning how to navigate the burdens and weight of the inner and outer world in ways that transform harm into healing. You do not have to save the world, but you do not have to destroy it or be destroyed by it. The Infinite and Transcendental Souls from this wave tend to have a theme of trauma as a means of igniting their passion for their causes, but these causes are never without personal relevance and meaning or disconnected from their trauma. This tells us that when one is determining their cause, it can be quiet and intimate and even private. For instance, someone who suffers from loneliness may begin to be the one who helps others to not be lonely, by reaching out, simply saying hello, offering a compliment or a thank you. This is as passionate a cause as gun control or human rights, etc. If you cannot determine your cause, allow your cause to "find you." MEntity: NEXT Maureen: Would you provide the Role in Essence, Casting, Cadre, and Entity for Infinite Soul Kumi Naidoo from South Africa and Transcendental Soul Alexei Navalny from Russia? MEntity: KUMI = 7th Level Old Priest-Cast King from Cadre 11, Entity 1 ALEXEI = Sage-Cast Scholar from Cadre 4, Entity 1 MEntity: NEXT AnnaD: From a perspective of prioritising physical survival and optimisation on earth for all sentience, what are the three most important causes that humanity may commit to that will optimise all sentience survival? MEntity: Causes that focus on PREVENTING HARM (shifting away from participation in any system that is in place that causes harm) would be first, followed by Causes that focus on RELIEVING HARM (helping those in need, reducing carbon footprint, consuming consciously, activism, education, etc), and then Causes that focus on REPAIRING HARM (implementing new habits, replacing unquestioned actions and choices, cleaning up, etc.). All of these can be considered in as intimate a context or as worldly a context as one needs to consider them, but if each person can prevent, relieve, and repair harm for themselves and others, the world is transformed and the way you see the world is transformed. AnnaD: Thank you MEntity: IN CLOSING: Many of our students have been raised with the general background noise that you were born during this time to see something extraordinary happen, or the end of the world, or the birth of a new age, or an acceleration of evolution, or an evolutionary leap, etc. As the world is always changing, this claim can be made at any time in history and found to be true to some extent. But if you sense that something is different in this time of transition, it is because for most of our active students, this is the last time you will see the world in the way it is seen now. It is true that you came to witness and be a part of an historic shift in paradigm and it is happening. It is messy and ugly and exciting and full of potential. It may seem chaotic, heavy, and overwhelming, but we know of no birth that is not. The details can be deeply painful but the bigger picture is on track as systems shift and crumble and prompt rebuilding and replacement. This is true of you internally, as well. Allow yourselves to see yourselves as a vital part of the beneficial change of the world and this can help your overwhelm to be lightened as it becomes common ground for bonding with others. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

  11. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. It has been said by many teachings at various points across all of your lives that you are living in pivotal times that determine the course of humanity for generations to come. It has been said by many teachers that you are accelerating and advancing and ascending and vibrating in ways that make you different from "before." In most versions of these proclamations, there are seeds of truth wrapped in romanticism, glamour, false personality, profound lack of comprehension, denial, and even fear. Many of these teachings and teachers speak to a very real pattern that cumulates over time and comes to a point of no return, both in your personal lives and in your collective lives, but this pattern is often described as something happening TO you, rather than FROM you. These patterns of transformation, pivotal times, acceleration, ascendence, vibrational fluctuations, etc. are happening regularly. They are not energies that sweep through a plane and, if you are lucky enough and awake enough, you can catch a ride. They are energies that grow and evolve and flow in ways that reflect the growth, evolution, and flow of humanity, of Human Sentience. Your growth, evolution, awareness, and awakeness must exist FIRST. You are not awakened BY events. You awaken TO events. We point all of this out as our start to discussing the patterns of 2021 because many events are out of your hands. They do happen to you. And many events happen to you without your consent, your choice, or your understanding. You cannot control all of the events of the world or even in your life. You only have control over your RESPONSE to those events and your willingness to use them to your advantage as best you can. 2020 was a year where many of our students did not have the capacity for keeping up with the events of the year that happened to them. There are many periods of times and general locations and populations who have events happen to them that they simply do not have the mental, emotional, or physical resources at hand to respond in meaningful ways. This is also important to understand because it will never be valid to assume that when one can respond meaningfully to events then all can respond meaningfully. 2021 is moving into a SERVER and a RE-EVALUATION period of time that reflects collective consciousness finally having the capacity, energy, time, strength, resources, and focus to process and understand the past 5 years or so and to do what needs to be done to nurture and create the next 5 years or so. Over the past 5 years, there has been an imbalance in how one cares. Some responded to events by asking how to take care of everyone else, leaving themselves out of the equation and growing exhausted, depressed, and lonely. Some responded to events by asking how to care better for themselves, leaving others out of the equation and growing exhausted, depressed, and lonely. True Care is a circuit that brings care for others AND the self. 2021 is a year in which each of you have an opportunity to look at that balance between caring for yourself and caring for others. It is no longer viable for you to only choose one. Whether you want to save the world or save yourself, you cannot do it alone. 2021 is set to bring with it a period that allows for greater reflection, awareness, grounding, and comprehension. Many younger souls who had been lost in a fog of untruths have been shocked and shattered by the reality of Re-evaluation activating for themselves. Many older souls who have been lost in a fog of frustration have been relieved and resting as their Re-evaluation activates for themselves. Though far from perfect in its implementation and in its reality at the moment, it is safe to say that there are glimpses among most fragments that reveal "we are going to be okay." For our students, we suggest this be your motto for 2021 when struggling with any personal or world events. This is not to be said to avoid reality or to deny your struggles, but to help you remain connected to that line of truth that is possible. This is the power of the Server. The Server in the Positive Pole brings with them the inherent reminder of safety that transcends the obvious and your wounding and fear. The Positive Pole Server trusts even when there is no "reason" to trust. They trust because they know that if they have experienced the other side of struggle and pain ONCE, then there is always the other side of struggle and pain. This is where all of you are now. You are in a space to trust, even if there is no reason to trust. You are in a space to create and remember that you are safe, even if you are uncertain. You are in a space to Serve others and yourself. The great shifts, fluctuations in vibrations, ascensions, pivotal times, and doomsday scenarios are moot. This is you, every single day. Each of you is a tornado of events with multidimensional hurricanes of emotion and thought. In your BEST of times, you are still these things. Our point being that you need not wait for the planets to align, or for energies to converge, or the right overleaves to emerge for a year, or even for global events to explode or resolve before you allow yourselves to live and love and be with each other in ways that matter as much as they can matter to you. There are Infinite Souls slated for Manifestation across 2021 and they do so not as a way to save humanity, but because humanity is ready to save itself. 2021 is a pivotal time, not because external forces are bringing you to a brink of change, but because humanity is tired of tolerating inhumanity. Over the course of your history, inhumanity has been possible because of isolated regions where tyranny and oppression can take hold over captured or passive peoples. Peaceful passive peoples are not inclined to fight, they are inclined toward inclusion and compliance, especially in the younger soul ages. As the world grew "smaller" in terms of travel and communication, the reality of oppression and tyranny has become clearer and clearer in its sources and how its influence is used to perpetuate it. In your world now, it may seem as if the world is "divided" more than ever, but that is not the case. It is that the peaceful passive peoples are waking up to their right to fight. The idea that one must comply, not fight, not complain, only work hard, and carry on as a way to promote peace, good, and comfort is dead. It was always a lie. This shift away from the lie can be seen in many areas of human existence where it can begin to be implemented, from the expansion of gender identity to the consequences of institutional racism, to the rise in willing populations to step forward for their most vulnerable, including themselves. It is easy to see that this shift is coming to a point of no return, but it is a shift that has been in the making for hundreds of years. Because of you. We share all of the above as a way to describe the "State of the Planet" in 2021 because this is where you are as students today. You have a year where all that has come to pass can be put into perspective and then used to the greatest advantage possible. Everything else is details. Your entire planet of people is ready for change, even if there are those who resist it. Even they are tired. Because people are ready for change and are no longer allowing excuses for those who resist it. We will now respond to specific questions already posed to Troy in advance. ***PRE-QUESTIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH TLE*** QUESTION: Recent developments in Unified Physics by a group led by Nassim Haramein seems to leading towards an entirely new Energy Technology, which taps into the "Source-Field" of physical reality, which will make all other forms of energy generation obsolete. What's the probability of seeing signs of real progress emerging in that regard this year or very soon? https://www.resonancescience.org/research-publications RESPONSE: There are valid concepts here that are greatly obscured by a delusional false personality. This is not meant as an insult, only as a description of one who uses falsehoods to promote truths. Truth cannot be packaged in falsehoods or they become religions. QUESTION: In a session with me in September, Michael shared the following: "We cannot say how long the turbulence of events will be [during this paradigm shift] but in most probabilities most turbulence is subsiding within 5 years, some within 25 years, and many within 2 years. We do not know what trajectory is in effect, yet, but even at the 'worst,' this transition is fairly short." Have we come any closer to settling into a trajectory? MORE INFO: I've been thinking about this quote a lot since January 6th, and I'm curious if current events (like the election and the fallout from the Capitol riot) have clarified our direction any. RESPONSE: At the moment, you are in a 2-year transitional shift that looks quite promising. We stress: at the moment. QUESTION: Recently you told me: "The anchoring of all Infinite Soul variations is in place now and the work of the various hosts is active. How these will show up in terms of public view, we do not know, but the work is in progress and the Support Groups of each are active. Manifestation among all hosts is now imminent, but how and when are not known, yet." We have identified 2 potential hosts: Emma Gonzalez and Pat McCabe. And three Transcendental Souls: David Hogg, Greta Thunberg and Yegor Zhukov. You recently mentioned that all of them are activated, so I am wondering where the other 3 are, and any other outstanding features such as gender, race, etc, that could help us identify them. RESPONSE: We are still looking for final indicators and validation of hosts for the Infinite Soul, but we did find a third confirmed host in South Africa by the name of Kumi Naidoo. QUESTION: I think one of the most amazing parts of being alive on Earth today is witnessing the first incarnations of a new Sentience. You said the ensoulment of Gorillas began sometime around 1990. In 2008, you said there were 24 Sentient Gorillas living on Earth. Our most recent update was in 2016, when you said that number expanded to more than 300 Sentient Gorillas across several different species and sub-species, and you also said, "Permanent anchoring of the Sentience is more likely than ever." Can you please give us another update on the progress of Gorilla ensoulment? Is Gorilla Sentience permanently anchored yet? RESPONSE: Yes, with more escalating evidence over the next 10 years as it coincides with a greater reduction of animal and environmental exploitation, in general. Gorillas will anchor Sentience permanently in some parallel, but they cannot do so in the current parallel without a profound return to dominion and communion with nature by Humans. This is mostly because if that return is not in effect, Gorillas would land in a trajectory of enslavement and exploitation that would destroy their species even more than it already has. QUESTION: Of all the people in Power Positions globally for the next few years, in their own fields, the whole spectrum, education, economy, environment, medicine, pharma, law, media, politics, military, etc. is there an interest, willingness and awareness of those who are in those positions, to put to serve, care, share and progressively change the system that it serves the whole and not only a few, above all else? As an example, the pharma industry is right now not sharing their recipes for vaccines, whilst in India there would be 50 factories if they would have it, could help distribution to countries that cannot afford the vaccine. MORE INFO: I'm not asking for a prediction, just wondering if we can find and validate some signs that we are moving in that direction at all. RESPONSE: If we understand your question correctly, we can say that over the next 2 to 5 years, more positions of power, authority, and influence will have been influenced by or taken over by Mature Souls who help to overhaul the current Young Soul Paradigm of scarcity and competition. The shift in overall collective consciousness helps to shift the behaviors and priorities of all Soul Ages. In other words, a Young Soul can still be a Young Soul in a world of compassion and sharing, just like a Mature and Old Soul can still be Mature and Old in a world of scarcity and competition. QUESTION: In terms of aiding the paradigm shift to a Mature Soul world/society, what can we, as INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITIES do to help advance the shift? Clarification: I'm speaking mostly in terms of older souls helping younger souls make that shift easier, avoiding unnecessary friction, be it emotional/physical/mental. I know there will be drama, as is expected for a Mature Soul age, wondering how to help minimize it. FOLLOW UP QUESTION: There is a lot of Fear involved with the shift I think; how can older souls help assuage that in others who may not even realize they carry that fear? RESPONSE: Living by example is one of the only ways that one can help change the world when the world is resisting change. The more people see more people doing more evolved things, the more people do those more evolved things. In other words: normalize compassion, normalize listening, normalize helping each other and knowing your limits and boundaries. But most importantly: normalize consequences and accountability. Older souls can learn from encouragement and comfort, but younger souls require real-world consequences and firm accountability. This means it is okay to speak up, speak out, and clarify boundaries when those who are fearful or behaving in ways fueled by fear cross lines and harm others. It is okay to offend. Their discomfort is not a sign of your failure. It is a sign of their conscience returning. QUESTION: I am curious about the transition to younger countries in soul age like Brazil. Will the change in these countries happen later? Will these countries see changes in other countries and try to do the same afterwards? RESPONSE: As mentioned before, we would say that in the same way that the Young Paradigm was pervasive in Mature and Old Soul havens, so will the Mature Soul Paradigm breach the defenses and walls of the Young Soul haves and invite those younger souls to learn new behaviors that work better with the new paradigm. Young Souls in a Mature Soul world are a very different kind of Young Soul, in much the same way that an Old Soul is a very different Old Soul in a Young Soul vs Old Soul world. In short, change is coming to all continents and countries in ways that would uplift all, but how that change shows up and how people react to it is yet to be seen. We know from the patterns we observe that these changes grow less and less dramatic over the next 25 years as more proof of concept, so to speak, is seen. People want to be happy and safe and more willing than ever to fight for that. Even North Korea is moving toward a complete overhaul in its social and political structure within that 25 years. QUESTION: The pandemic slowed down western economy, air and car travel. I’ve also noticed people are more aware of the environmental impact they have, more and more companies, shops and even countries started to move to more sustainable resources over the past year. I was wondering if this has actually made a noticeable difference. What is the current state of our planet environmentally? Have we been able to lower the risk of mass extinction and what would be do-able key elements to lessen the impact at this stage? MORE INFO: I mainly would like to have an update on where we stand and if there have come up (or if we are close to) new solutions to this main issue since we last asked. RESPONSE: The slowing down of environmental impact has made a tremendous difference that must be built upon for it to have lasting effect. From what we can see, the willingness is strong to build upon what has been learned over the past year and likely to set new standards for travel, work, food and goods accessibility. We will likely not know if this impact will have lasting effect that brings new standards until 2022. QUESTION: What might be some of the short-term and long-term effects on society and technologies used by society as a result of the pandemic and the coming Soul Age shift over the next five to ten years? MORE INFO: Michael mentioned back in the January 2018 State of the Planet that in 2020, humanity would hit the walls of Energy Resource, Consumption, Waste Management, Climate and Environment, Information Management, Social Intelligence, and Diet as a result of the Turning Points of 2016. They also mentioned the pandemic would likely set the tone for the next five to ten years of society. I'm curious as to what new scientific breakthroughs and technological developments and changes in societal behavior and norms might arise as a result of the pandemic response. RESPONSE: The greatest shift is in the realization of the value of truth and the impact that the lack of truth can bring. Misinformation, gaslighting, and denial have been demonstrated clearly in their harm to both the internal and external world. When truth is upheld, the pace of progress is improved because areas of experimentation, exploration, and application are freed to receive public support and funding that may be required for development and implementation. We see elements of travel, delivery, communication, collaboration, etc. all improved dramatically over the next 2 years in terms of their value and effectiveness. QUESTION: Advancements continue to be made in virtual and mixed reality headsets. For example, Microsoft released their HoloLens 2 headset, a mixed reality headset that is immersive and makes it possible to interact with holograms as if they are real objects. Then there is the Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headset that has advanced in terms of working in both standalone mode and linking with a computer if desired using mobile technology. The mobile technology has advanced to where the virtual experience is closer to being realistic now. Based on where we are now, what advancements might we see over the next 10 years with this technology? As people have adapted more to doing things remotely from the pandemic, do you see people in this time frame using mixed reality technology to communicate and interact with each other across the world versus in person and would this have a noticeable impact on the environment? RESPONSE: Wearable technology that improves real-world exchanges and improves real-world privacy options is likely to grow exponentially in accessibility and usage over the next 5 years. Many of our students we know in your near-future have begun using virtual haptic spaces for gatherings on a regular basis. We have always said that the Physical Plane is merely a slow-motion replica of the Astral Plane and what comes to be invented in the Physical has its counterpart in the Astral. Your evolving virtual spaces and experiences in the Physical (from books to film to virtual and augmented reality) are direct reflections of your evolution in understanding of how your Essence experiences the Physical Plane. QUESTION: I'm curious when and how the stock market will "end" as we move towards resource base economy. The background is, during the pandemic, when many members of our society are struggling to make ends meet, the stock market rose to a record level and the disparity of income and wealth are alarmingly high. It seems that federal reserve figured out a way to print money without risking high inflation. Of course, it benefits the rich a lot more than the rest. Do you see a transition to income and wealth equality in a peaceful fashion, or some kind of uprising is unavoidable given the current trend of increasing disparity among social classes? RESPONSE: We see this transition as fairly peaceful, but quite slow. When new systems simply work better, it does not take much to implement them. The difference between now and the past is that most people did not understand or want to understand the mechanics of economy and the machine of capitalism. As more and more people realize how it truly works and that they do not have to comply passively to a system of oppression, they can begin implementation of change. The change is fairly inevitable, slow, and most likely peaceful. From what we can see at the moment. QUESTION: as the economy moves away from capitalism, it seems that ideas of mutual aid and community organization are going to become more important. How will these ideas play out in the economy as we move forward? more info: the idea of mutual aid as I understand it is to provide for those locally who need with the excess we have often for free. RESPONSE: Mutual aid has been available and promoted for many decades, but has only now begun its ascent into being more than a means for responding to emergency or suffering. Mutual aid is gaining momentum in small communities and spreading as an idea that takes little effort to implement in any size community. It is the heart and beginning of a Resource-based economy. QUESTION: With all of the money that has been printed in recent months and now considerably more planned imminently to (band-aid) alleviate the dire circumstances of so many people and businesses in our country, inflation will be rising exponentially as the dollar loses less and less value, it seems, according to prognostications and some plans by banks, that our country is heading toward a digitized currency in lieu of the dollar relatively soon. And will universal digitized currency be the first step we will have toward a resource-based economy? Not asking for a prediction as always but is this a probability as you, The Michaels, see it? RESPONSE: digitized and decentralized economy is imminent. We will have more to say about this over time. QUESTION: The tremendous divisions between "sides" in our society must mean that each side sees something to fear in the other sides. What new concepts, perspectives, would help each side begin to work toward living more easily with the other sides? RESPONSE: The division here is mostly in terms of inclusion vs exclusion. One "side" is all about inclusion, but is forced into implementing and experiencing exclusion to protect themselves, while the other "side" is all about exclusion and feel forced into implementing and experiencing inclusion. One "side" legitimately fears being harmed while the other "side" irrationally fears being harmed. The only solution is for the exclusionary "side" to gain more experience with those whom they refuse to include. This can be done rather rapidly if there is shared, common, and safe ground to explore relationships. This is why a homophobic pastor can suddenly change his heart and mind if he finds his child is gay. It is also of note that when religion is removed from the equation, so is division. As religion dies from society, so does division. And religion is dying. ***END OF CONTRIBUTED QUESTIONS** We have exhausted our channel. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

  12. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. First, we will say that the joyfulness experienced by our students gathering in recognition is not limited to students. We share in that experience. We deliver our teaching as clearly as possible and without emotional charge, but we share in these pleasures with you. The "seems like old times" phrase has many layers to that statement for us. We mention this because there is relevance to our statements that lead us into the Energy Report. ENERGY REPORT - October 2020 October is a major shift in energy away from the possibilities/potentials and beliefs emphasized by the Spiritualist Attitude over the past few months. The shift is now a freefall into the emphasis on Self-Deprecation. Spiritualist energy will remain, of course, as all of the "overleaves" of the year are in effect at all times, but the emphasis is shifting toward the Chief Features. Many will continue nurturing and gathering verification of possibilities and potential, and many will continue locked in their beliefs with no interest in anything beyond those beliefs. The "season" of the Chief Feature brings with it a dive into the Fear of Inadequacy, or Fear of being invisible, not being seen, not being good enough. We remind you that the thing that is feared by each Chief Feature is a natural part of life and it is only the fear of this thing that can become problematic. Inadequacy is an experience everyone will have and can never escape. There will always be times when one falls short or is not good enough or fails expectations. This is normal. Developing a fear of this and avoiding it at all costs through habitual behaviors that can be destructive is where the difficulty lies. Fear of Inadequacy can show up in many ways, but older souls react to this fear differently than younger souls. When older souls fear inadequacy, they can tend to shrivel, retreat, hide, or become the person who insults themselves first before others can do it. Older souls afflicted with this fear assume they are wrong or in trouble or failing long before anyone else brings this up. Younger souls react differently. Younger souls afflicted with Self-Deprecation tend to ramp up overcompensation. They move into denial and frenetic panic to prove themselves and to demand they are seen for how they want you to see them. It is not enough that you may see them already; the younger soul demands that you see them how they decide you should see them. This may seem similar to Arrogance, but Arrogance is a fear of being seen too closely. Arrogance is about keeping others from seeing how one sees oneself, whereas Self-Deprecation pushes for others to see how one sees oneself. Older souls tend to retreat and hide because they do not want to be liked or seen only because they pushed you to see them. Younger souls do not have that concern. So the next three months emphasizing the Chief Feature of Self-Deprecation is likely to be quite turbulent as exhausted older souls try to override the wish to simply shut down, shut off, and hide while the younger souls try to overcompensate and prove themselves by pushing, forcing, and imposing their view of themselves on others. The key for older souls to sustain their strength over the next few months is in each other. Older souls must network and communicate and rely upon each other to see and hear each other so that fear does not complicate an already complicated time. You may or may not be seen or heard by your younger soul friends, loved ones, or strangers. It is highly unlikely during this period in time because most younger souls are only concerned with how they want to be seen. We remind you that this position for younger souls is natural and normal, but we also remind you that "natural and normal" does not mean it is something to ignore or assume must be endured. It is natural and normal to defecate, but it is quite useful and meaningful not to do so in the middle of an office meeting or on the dinner table. As October unfolds, we suggest to our students who may struggle with Self-Deprecation to treat this as a period of time when it is okay to "dress up" and be more than you expect yourself to be. Nurture who you are without fear of falling short or being disappointed. Carry your insecurities and uncertainties with you but carry them alongside you, not inside you. In other words, be worried with friends, talk about your concerns and plans and bring comfort to each other, vent, regroup and ground and then continue together forward. There are going to be failures and disappointments and some of them may be catastrophic in life, but they are not something to fear and avoid, they are something to acknowledge and navigate. We mentioned at the beginning of our report that it was relevant to note that we experience joy along with our students when they reunite in recognition. This is relevant because many of our students may begin to experience moments of bizarre and beautiful, even aching, nostalgia over the next month or so. Smells, memories, contact, reconnections, a single word, a ray of sunlight and a breeze, a temperature, etc. may send you into a blissful moment of nostalgia that may be vague or clear, but striking, nonetheless. These moments of nostalgia are not just moments of nostalgia, but moments of alignment with Essence, Entity, and Cadre. They are "perfect" moments that tap into your emotional intelligence that relies on nostalgia for creating more relevant and meaningful futures. Nostalgia is a primary strength of emotional intelligence as it is the part of the emotional body that carries forward all that matters, not merely all that happens. This nostalgia takes the best and builds upon that. With the truth so fragile at the moment, many are dependent upon nostalgia to keep the truth alive about the wonders of existing and living and being together as human beings in this world. There are awful and horrifying things that happen in the world, but these have never defined your world. Your evolution has defined it. And it is vital to know the truth that it is evolving and you are a part of that. Embrace those moments of nostalgia as fuel and fearlessness and build upon that, even if the moment is brief and vague. This is the value and meaning in existence that you want to take with you into your days that make any challenge or obstacle worth navigating. DATES OF INTEREST: OCT 4 - Energy Shift - REALITY CHECK - this appears to be a shift that emphasizes a reality check, or a focus on directly dealing with or exposing or lifting the truth in a way that is not ignored. On a collective level, we think this may relate to strategies for the Mature and Old to focus on how to move forward together rather than how to move others. On a personal level, this may be a shift that takes you out of a fog you may have been in for the past 3 months on some level. OCTOBER ?? - Infinite Soul activates among hosts. We cannot predict this as 100%, nor can we describe what this will look like, but we have enough data to see that it is more likely than not that the flow of Infinite Soul through the hosts begins in October. We remind you that these are not saviors. They are people. Infinite Souls are not superstar celebrities (unless they are). The effect of the Infinite Soul is longterm, not a matter of rescuing or saving. We remind you that it does not mean "the worst." We remind you that the Infinite Soul is not some external god, but the whole of all of us. In other words, when the Infinite Soul manifests, it is because events require ALL of us to come together in some way that changes course for all of us. And by "us," we include ourselves. We also remind you that hosts may or may not be those we once identified as candidates. We can discuss what all of this means in further exchanges with you. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.

  13. ENERGY REPORT JULY 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY launches or continues (for many) the deep dive into the Cynic Attitude and it has not been a comfortable dive for most of our students. July does not likely bring relief from this. The Cynic Attitude is a perception of life that points out everything that is not obvious to others, or what the Cynic determines is not obvious to others. This helps bring a perception of life and of the world that is not blinded by optimism or hope or faith or denial, etc. The Realist will always point out what is obvious and the Cynic points out what is not obvious. Pointing out “what is” and “what is not” is quite valuable for the world so that blind spots are avoided. However, when the Realist or Cynic lose their perspective and simply determine and decide for themselves what is and what is not, they become quite challenging perspectives to endure. When Cynicism in the Positive Pole, Contradiction, it points out what is not obvious. When Cynicism is in Negative Pole, Denigration, it only points out what is not. The Cynic in the Negative Pole has decided what is not or has become consumed by what is not and gets lost in this nothingness. When the negative Cynic only focuses on what is not, there is little left to feel of any substance, value, meaning, worth, etc. Denigration is not merely the feeling of emptiness and lack of meaning, but an effort to prove it and substantiate this emptiness and lack of meaning. This means there are many parts of the self or others around you or world events that are going to be making the case for meaninglessness and providing “proof” of this. Of course, it is all a lie, but when perception is skewed so intensely, everything is distorted. Many are sliding rapidly into this state or enduring it more than usual. A solution to returning to some sense of meaning, substance, value, worth, etc. is to aim for the Positive Pole of the Realist, which is OBJECTIVITY. If you are feeling the weight of Denigration and the “see, I told you life sucks!” mentality, you have lost all objectivity. You have lost your willingness to be open to the truth. As we have mentioned several times, the greatest threat to all of you is the loss of capacity for hearing, knowing, seeing, expressing the truth. When any Attitude is in the Negative Pole, it is rejecting the truth. If you are feeling the weight of the Cynic perception, it is likely you are rejecting or not seeing the truth. Objectivity means being fair. It means seeing the whole picture, not just a fraction or it or the dominant color or lack of color. The easiest way to understand how to be objective when you have lost yourself in Denigration is to LOOK FOR MORE. Look for more information, look for more insight, look for more time, more patience, more of anything that breaks the trajectory toward the black hole of Denigration. This is true on a global scale, as well. There is MORE. There is so much more than what you are seeing. There is so much more than what you focus on as the problems, challenges, and suffering of life. Your focus on these things is important and valid, but THERE IS MORE TO SEE THAN THIS. It is okay to see more than this. It will not destroy your capacity to focus on problems if you find time to take a break and breathe, treat yourself. It will not destroy your capacity to help others if you take a moment to enjoy a conversation or play a game or read or have a drink or take a bath. There is more. There is always more. If you find yourself spiraling into thinking or feeling that life is only one thing, you must do the work of knowing, creating, finding, the truth that there is more than this. NOTE: it may be helpful to get into the practice of keeping Cynicism in check as this is only the beginning of the wave of emphasis on this perception. **** [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: JULY 7th - 12th: ENERGY SHIFT - HIGH sensitivity, emotionality, grief, mourning, nostalgia, vague sense of loss, and “something” impending and looming. This is not the first time this wave has hit our students. It is all anxiety or the locked loop/trap between the Intellectual and Emotional Centers without any Physical/Moving. It may be helpful to MOVE. Get out, walk, dance, be in contact with nature, or create something with your hands. JULY 26th = NEXUS: CONVERGENCE - an unusual merging of parallels focused on relationships recovering, healing, and being revitalized over time when they were once thought lost to time, conflict, or distance. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: EVEN WHEN YOU SEE AND KNOW AND EXPERIENCE EVERYTHING, THERE IS MORE - We are repeating the important note to carry with yourself as a reminder that what you see, know, and experience matters, but if your focus has shifted into a tunnel vision of darkness, heaviness, disconnection, etc. it may be time to consider that there is more, and to be open to it, look for it, invite it and BE it.

  14. Troy: Have a great session everyone! Bringing in Michael (and their 1050 taints). LOL how do I always end up there? Okay, so let's see what today brings... do we have a future as humans and will we keep our humanity? ******* ⓘ Troy is now known as MEntity MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin. Troy has posed their question to us. We will respond. It may be of note that we do not have "taints." The short answer to the question of "do we have a future as humans and will we keep our humanity" is YES, OF COURSE. However, your world is changing. It is always changing so you may have heard this message all of your life and have seen it documented in history as if every major event marks a shift in your world, but the changes we speak of are cumulative and tend to be unnoticed until they are noticed. It is true that your world changes if a nuclear bomb were to drop or if a war breaks out or a pandemic spreads globally. There are always catalysts for change and they come often with some being major and global, some being minor and local, and some being more like speed bumps or steps. But the change we speak of today is about the changes that come over time to reveal an evolutionary shift, not just an event around which one must adapt. In our teaching, this evolutionary shift is described in the weight of the masses being more Mature Soul than any other Soul Age. This actual shift came rather quietly in the late 80's, marked by the "Harmonic Convergence" that was coordinated. It was not this event that caused the shift, but rather that it marked the shift. It is now 34 years later for you and the reality of that shift is becoming more and more obvious in ways that are not about a momentum that will carry you forward, but about a necessity for participation and contribution that will carry you forward. This shift began 30+ years ago as Young Soul ideas were used in a way that helped support Mature Soul concepts. The Young Soul paradigm was often about "me first" and it led to quite selfish and greedy and competitive positions in life as well as people finding themselves in positions of neglect, exhaustion, overwhelm, and being ignored, left behind, forgotten. The Mature Soul shift started to introduce the idea of "me first" in a way that encouraged CARE for the self as way to be better available to themselves and each other. A great deal of the "new age" movement then was about owning yourself, your reality, and taking responsibility for your own happiness, well-being, joy, etc. This allowed the Young Souls to find footing in Mature Soul concepts, but it also created a quite self-centric path of philosophy that has become quite problematic and harmful today. Many who are quite immersed in "the new age" of today are Young Souls, with some learning how to implement Mature Soul concepts and some continuing to simply impose Young Soul values. The reason we share all of this history is to give context to what is next for those who are participating and contributing to the world that is changing, not just in superficial or worldly ways, but changing in fundamental and baseline philosophical ways. It is a Mature Soul world now. To exist in this world means changing fundamental base assumptions about how the world works now. The world still has Baby and Young and Infant patterns at work, so they will always be there in pockets that are communities or countries, but as a WORLD, you exist in a Mature paradigm now. The future for humans, regardless of what it may seem at the moment, is quite incredible. We cannot predict the future, but we can comment on the higher probabilities, and most futures for humans are quite shockingly different from your history. Those futures stand as probabilities at the moment, which means that they do not exist as you know it. They are floating in potential states that require paths to them. These paths are created by you. And when we say "you," we mean YOU. Not the world, not the community, not a country, but all of you, individually. Because there is no such thing as collective patterns without the individuals who contribute to those. So the answer to whether there is a future for humans is a resounding YES, OF COURSE. We see no futures without humans in some form. But the futures with humans who continue to keep, nurture, and evolve their humanity do require the shift in assumptions about how the world works. It is still valid to continue the movement in awareness toward how best to care for yourself, how to self-care, how to treat yourself, give yourself a break, catch up with yourself, etc., particularly for those who are in positions in life where culture, society, family, or country weigh heavily and oppressively upon them. However, it is also time to put AS MUCH emphasis on how to CARE FOR OTHERS. It is the only way forward. All other paths die out. The only futures that exist with humans in some form and with humanity intact are those where humans began to see the planet as home, and its inhabitants as fellow earthlings, not nuisances and threats to ignore, fight, exploit, or destroy. We do not offer this with urgency or as an ominous ultimatum. We offer this as part of your learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn. You have a choice. You are learning how to choose. You are choosing how to learn. And choices have consequences. The consequences can be seen all around you now. They are not distant. They are not "somewhere else." They are not "someone else's problem." They are here, now, and everyone's. In a Young Soul paradigm, the base assumptions are that you are never obligated to be concerned with or worried about or focused on any other life than that of your own. This works beautifully for this stage of development in maturity for the soul as every Essence must fully differentiate and define itself before it can fully embrace and BE with others. Otherwise, the sense of self can be lost and consumed. The Young Soul stage ensures that no Essence ever loses its own stamp of self-awareness and identity that carries forward all the way home. The soul/Essence merges so profoundly in the higher planes that if this Young stage were never fulfilled, the Essence would be lost to oceans of thought, feeling, and consciousness. This has never happened. But this is why the steps taken to care for yourself are quite important and valid as you begin to care so deeply for others. But the quiet impulse to do better, be better, contribute more, participate, make changes, alter habits, etc. are all impulses that are inviting you to be IN the new paradigm and to help anchor it in ways that help those who come after you. Which, in truth, will be you, too. So the answer to whether the future for humans will include your humanity is: that is up to you. The efforts you make to ensure your self-care while you make the changes and efforts to care for others matter for the future of humans and humanity. On the smallest of scales, on the most individual of choices, it all matters. We will open the floor now to questions. ****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN**** Yes, Janet. JanetH: Michael I feel so deflated thinking all we can do is to care more for ourselves and others while the world burns. Is that it? Is there anything more concrete? MEntity: This deflation comes from having been imprinted by an outdated Young Soul paradigm. This is why it is so exhausting for many to consider caring at all because caring seems to mean either dramatic contributions that prove obvious and immediate benefit, or that it is empty and pointless and meaningless so why care at all. All of you are carrying the burden of this imprinting and it is no longer useful or necessary. JanetH: Food for thought. Thank you. MEntity: CARE BECAUSE YOU CARE. DO WHAT YOU CAN DO. These two things matter more than you may ever know while you are alive. From your position, you may not know the effect that your supposedly meaningless moment of kindness did to inspire someone else who had greater resources and strength to do what they can do. Donations matter. Aligning with causes matters. Speaking up matters. Educating yourself about others matters. Dropping defenses against changes that are uncomfortable and exploring the importance of those changes matters. JanetH: Thank you Michael. MEntity: You may not be able to stop the world from burning, so to speak, but that is not the goal. Controlled burning is an option. By this we mean that some elements of civilization, culture, and society are going to fall. They have to. It will not be pretty. And people may be hurt as this happens. The goal is to be in charge of creating new spaces, new ways, new paths that are there so that as things change, people have a place to land, so to speak. JanetH: That is a vision I can begin to grasp. Thank you. MEntity: It matters that you are not on fire. That is the goal. JanetH: Wow. Yes MEntity: NEXT BrianW: Hi Michael, could you describe specifically how humans on both an individual level and as a civilization will most likely change and adapt to the effects of climate change over the next century? What elements of civilization, culture, and society will likely fall, and what will take their place? MEntity: The greatest changes we have seen in nearly all futures is a move in two directions: controlled environments (architecture, design, materials, etc. that accommodate and help to reduce the harmful effects of the changes) and global standards (global government, economy, currency, policies, protections, etc.). The latter could never have worked in a Young Soul paradigm without exploitation, but in a Mature paradigm, the chances are quite high that the structure of power is one that sets standards that are valuable to all. These changes are only in the very beginning stages of consideration and might be considered fantasy now, but this shift begins to be taken more seriously around 2030 as a viable future. There are many threats to consider when implementing such a future, so there will likely be no overnight shift in this direction. However, housing and shelter and reduction of waste and more sustainable resources are all in the works of development now and will continue. The move toward more mobile, modular, and eco-friendly cities is on the rise and can save many populations over time. The elements that are nearly inevitable to collapse are religion, power and wealth disparity, debt-based economy, binary thinking, gender, social, and racial and status roles, power structures that are not focused on service, etc. NEXT (last question) Wendy: Is there a way for us to effectively fight the authoritarians taking over the world and not hate and fear our fellow citizens and governments that are making that push? How can we navigate this from a higher perspective? MEntity: Yes. The fight will be a fight, whether you hate or not. The fight is a fight because it is a fight. This will not change. The choice to fight and be a part of that fight, however directly or indirectly, matters. Wendy: It feels like we're losing and it's terrifying. MEntity: Hate indicates that which one profoundly does not understand. This is why hate is considered a "bad thing" and tends to be something one is to reject or avoid. But it is only information. For those who hate others because they do not understand them and refuse to understand them, this is a kind of hate that harms. For those who hate others because they do not understand them and they make every effort to understand them, this is a kind of hate that is justified. It is one thing to hate someone because they are different from you. It is quite another to hate someone because they are actively seeking to harm you. For those of you who hate those who are out to harm you, it is okay that you cannot understand this. It is not something that can be understood. Once you allow yourself permission to stop trying to make sense of it, the hate starts to shift into motivation, purpose, meaning, fuel. One of the reasons hate can be so consuming or exhausting is because one either continues to reject understanding when understanding is readily available, or when one continues to insist on understanding that which can never be understood. As for whether you are losing the fight or not, we know from experience as Warriors and Kings that winning and losing are only ever steps in directions that will always have next steps to consider. For example, in the United States the Civil War was won and slavery was ended. This was a win. A profound win. But this step has led to next steps of addressing racism and systemic oppression that have been allowed to flourish. This does not make the Civil War less of a win, but it puts into perspective that the steps continue. This is the same when there are losses. A loss is never permanent. Great changes and thrusts of evolution can come from losses. Our point being: one cannot measure the value of effort and contribution by the moments of loss or wins, or by the fears or hopes during a fight. It is the fight that matters. It is the next steps that matter. Always make the effort. Always take the next step. This is the way forward. The wins and losses are only information about what still needs to be done. We will conclude here for today. We will see each of you in your futures. Your humanity intact. It is okay to hate, fight, despair, and be worried, but it is also okay to love, to rest, to trust, to drink in the beauty of each other and your world because it is not going anywhere. Goodbye, for now.

  15. ENERGY REPORT FEBRUARY 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) FEBRUARY continues the process of reflection and re-evaluation that will be a thread throughout the year. The focus of re-evaluation has turned toward the Server elements of energy this year, with questions and considerations coming up for how you can take better care of yourselves and each other, and for most of you, how to strike that balance between taking care of yourself and others. Many of our students may not “know what to do with themselves” during this shift into Re-evaluation and Server energy and may resort to familiar methods of retreat or distancing because the pressures of the inner and outer worlds continue to be felt, so rather than avoid retreat or distancing, we can suggest to use these methods to your advantage for examining and practicing how better to care for yourself and/or others. Retreat can be a way to avoid Re-evaluation or it can be a way to embrace it. If you find yourself uncertain and untethered in retreat, it can be grounding for you to ask “what little thing can I do today to show I care about myself.” Follow through with this little thing. What you may learn from this is that what you do for you matters as much as what you might wish others would do for you. It does not count less because it comes from you. In fact, it “counts” even more. Many of you may be in retreat as a way to understand that Server energy is not something that you only provide as a gift to others or only wait to receive as a gift from others. It is something that you nurture all around and inside of you that creates a common ground of exchange with others. When you reject your care for yourself, you diminish and block the path of care that can come from others and you compromise your effectiveness in caring for others. Many relationships struggle under this weight of assuming that caring is something you give to others or receive from others, but Servers know that a circuit MUST be created or Service falls into Bondage. Service is when one includes and nurtures caring when giving to the self and other. Bondage is when one rejects or ignores caring when giving to the self and others. We will define caring here as BLAMELESS. When you care about others, you are not blaming them for their needs, even if they are neglecting those needs. When you care about yourself, you are not blaming yourself for your needs. You give what you can, how you can, and when you can. Service is blamelessness. Bondage is resentment. If you find yourself in a strange limbo of retreat, allow yourself that time to reflect and reconsider your relationship to caring for yourself and move away from resentment and into blamelessness. Your loneliness is not your fault. Your isolation is not your fault. Your needs are not your fault. Your moods, anger, and exhaustion are not your fault. Give yourself the care that you need, ask for the care that you need, give the care that others need, when you can, how you can, and in ways that you can. That is all that is necessary to help begin to heal any painful distance between you and yourself, you and others, and you and the world. Keep in mind that Service can come in many forms. It is not just about desperation. It is about the smile that someone needed to see. It is about the laughter that needed to be shared. It is about the insight that needed to be exchanged. It is about the patience that needed to be given or received. It is about listening. It is about all of the “little things” that matter in ways that are often ignored. [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: No Shifts or Nexus in February HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER FEBRUARY: LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT - Practice giving awareness to all of the little things that you can do for yourself and for others in a way that nurtures caring. Give weight and meaning to the little things you see offered to you from others. Let your heart and mind bring you little thoughts, little feelings, little moments that can be considered as caring for yourself. Your needs are your needs. Sometimes your needs cannot be met, but you can still care by not blaming yourself or others.

  16. I have been lying low and living in limbo for so long and I am sick to death of it. I am making every effort to break out of this pattern for 2021. Wish me luck! But we do have to give ourselves the space, time, love, kindness, and acceptance for our ebbs and flows in mood, heart, social strength, creativity, thoughts, etc. If you have been feeling disconnected and distant and untethered and unmotivated and withdrawn like I have been feeling, you are not alone. And you should take as much time as you need to work through your stuff. But I have some announcements for some community improvements and events that I think will help all of us in little ways that may help 2021 be a better year. I’ll post my 2021 agenda soon. For now, just know that I love you and this community and feel it is time for me to return to life with more presence and participation. Thank you for always allowing me the room to be human and to grow along with you. HAPPY NEW YEAR! CHEERS!!

  17. From a private session on 8/17/2021: Note: Michael mentioned in the earlier part of this session that "There are many planning a return for 2025 to 2050 as these years mark dramatic turns in power dynamics on the planet." DianeHB: I'm curious about what are the dramatic turns in power dynamics in 2025-2050? MEntity: The most dramatic shifts are likely in terms of the United States losing a great deal of power but also a shift toward greater sharing or equalizing of power. This may come turbulently or peacefully, but this shift in evening out power is fairly inevitable and helps to anchor the Mature Soul Age like never before. DianeHB: Sounds like interesting times. DianeHB: I'll be here. MEntity: Events are already unfolding that put into perspective the necessity of shared power to care for each other and to move away from isolation. The events in Afghanistan are an example of this as it cannot be addressed by one country or superpower. It will require multiple sources collaborating. MEntity: The same is true of Haiti. MEntity: Humanity cannot continue determining the value of life based upon conveniences or arbitrary values of currency. DianeHB: Yeah, and we can't "help" in order to get access to their resources MEntity: Between 2025 and 2050 comes a Turning Point of total "reset" or continuation toward solutions together. DianeHB: Oh dear. MEntity: We have not seen a "reset" in probabilities, yet. MEntity: Correction: We have not yet seen a "reset" probability come into existence. But it is still a probability. DianeHB: Can you say more about Afghanistan? If Troy is up to it. MEntity: What questions do you have? DianeHB: I didn't have a question prepared about it, but maybe potential consequences? What can we do to help? DianeHB: Consequences of a Taliban government? MEntity: The consequences appear to be fairly contained in most probabilities, but the suffering is likely to be immense among those locked within the region. An elevated approach to resolutions are likely to be found in diplomacy and communication in a way that helps bring some liberation to those who wish to leave. There was resignation to a great extent when the Taliban was in power before, but we do not see this as the case this time. The resistances will likely show up in many different ways that either force the Taliban to reconsider its tactics or leave them with few to govern. MEntity: We offer this as an assessment during a period when no probability is clear. MEntity: In other words, we do not know what will happen. MEntity: We cannot predict. DianeHB: I see, thank you. MEntity: Ways to help would be through verified organizations that help refugees and supporting any coordination for evacuations. In the long term, holding your leaders responsible for contributing to solutions, communication, and help is vital, even if it seems meaningless. DianeHB: Got it. MEntity: This is a region of early Baby and early Mature Souls in conflict, much like the United States. It will take the Young Souls to "side" with Mature Souls to make a difference. MEntity: We will conclude here then for today. Good day to you, Diane. Goodbye, for now. DianeHB: Thank you so much Michael and Troy.

  18. BACKSTORY: The term, Cynosure (pronounced SIGN O SURE), came through unexpectedly in response to a personal question in a group event. This was a new term that was also very familiar in its meaning. We then followed up with some additional channeling added to an episode of TLEtv. Below is a synopsis of what we had learned before the Michael Speaks transcribed here. CYNOSURES - Our North Stars of Existence This new concept revealed to us recently is a great example of how the questions of students over time help shape and reveal the depths and nuances of this teaching and keep it alive. You never know what might come from a question worded a certain way or asked again in a new context. So keep your curiosity high with Michael. Michael says we have only barely scratched the surface of what there is to learn. The following is an edited version of the original reveal of the concept of Cynosure. First, the definition of a Cynosure is - NOUN - “a person or thing that is the center of attention or admiration” FROM MICHAEL: All fragments set up a group of cynosures that can become anchor points, memory triggers, comfort sources across lifetimes. There are three tiers to these cynosures: the cosmic, the worldly, and the personal. Cynosures are objects in nature or as a result of creativity, or particular people, who act as contact points between your current consciousness and all other versions of your consciousness across time and space relative to that object. Cosmic cynosures are not usually implemented until there is off-planet travel, but even planet-bound older souls will know a cosmic cynosure in the form of a teaching such as ours. Worldly Cynosures can be such things as a geographical location or natural wonder or long-standing creation that endures time are cynosures, such as constellations, the Grand Canyon, or The Pyramids. In the Personal tier, there are objects such as musical instruments, or tools, or even fashions that act as Cynosures for a set of Personalities or lifetimes that link together over time and space. People can act as Cynosures, as well. Think of these as navigational elements of the soul. They tend to become more obvious or noted in lifetimes or periods of time when one needs to re-center oneself and align with a greater direction that is part of a greater pattern. They are your "North Star," so to speak. If you have recognized a cynosure in your life, it means you are likely manifesting Essence or working on it, and connecting to parts of you that exist across time and space and dimensions who aim for the same thing: Home. This aiming for home is not as an escape or as some distant place to reach, but as a reclaiming and remembering of the part of you, that is part of the wholeness of existence. The part of you that you bring with you wherever, however, and whenever you are. ADDITIONAL CHANNELING: Cynosures can be recognized by 3 distinct symptoms: +they trigger a sense of remembering something/recognition; +they tend to invoke awe, enthusiasm, or persistent curiosity +they tend to be true forever and not lose value in meaning over time -troy *** May 23, 2021 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. Today we are asked to elaborate on the concept of Cynosures. Cynosures is not a new concept but it happens that we were able to respond to a question that allowed us to refine the concept. It should be noted for those who are curious that this was not a "new word" through Troy. This word would have had to have been in his bank of consciousness "somewhere" for us to use it. There are many words and images and input that a body takes in that is never accessed or made consciously relevant. If this word had not been available in our channel, another word would have been chosen that would approximate it, such as "beacon," but we have used that term for other elements and prefer the more meaningful "cynosure." It has been asked if Cynosure is different from instances of resonance to past lives, or objects and people who inspire. They are different. Cynosures are about awe, admiration, and attention that is specifically determined to be relevant. Other instances of resonance are based on what has become meaningful and relevant due to experiences that are processed and evolution that is gained. Or they are assigned inherently in mathematical relevance, such as Essence Twins or Entity Mates. These are instances of Recognition and Resonance due to either inherent meaning and relevance or cumulative meaning and relevance. A Cynosure is chosen. Cynosures can overlap with instances of Recognition and Resonance, but they are specifically chosen. For example: If an Essence wishes to explore the art of expression through music, a guitar or piano may be chosen as a Cynosure before birth and this becomes a "north star" for triggering curiosity, awe, and meaning in anything related to guitars or pianos. If a Personality has had a particularly meaningful moment of truth, love, or beauty, that Personality may "bookmark" those particular colors of the sunset as a Cynosure, or sink into the movement of the music or singing that defines the moment and assign this as a Cynosure. All subsequent lifetimes may then feel this moment of awe, admiration, and attention...when the same or similar sounds are heard. If there is a moment of awe, admiration, and attention given to a teaching that has altered your life in some meaningful way, then the concepts of that teaching can become a Cynosure for future lives. If a concept that is a Cynosure is approached, it triggers the very real experience of "remembering" the concepts but finally having words to form around them. Students of any teaching, such as ours, assign that teaching as a Cynosure. To help us better deliver and clarify the concept of Cynosures, we will open the floor to your questions. See your moderator for how to participate, if you are unfamiliar. ****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN**** Yes, Maureen Maureen: Are our Trues Cynosures? MEntity: They are close to being Cynosures. The difference is that those factors that contribute to your "Trues" in a single lifetime are more customized to the Life Task and dynamic of the Personality for that lifetime. Those activities that support your Pillars for the Life Task may be cynosures, but they may also be relevant only a certain set of Personalities across lifetimes. Once a Cynosure has been chosen, it is true and meaningful to ALL Personalities. Let us clarify: If an Essence chooses a Cynosure for a Personality, such as the guitar, then all subsequent lifetimes will also find the guitar to trigger awe, admiration, and attention. Even if a much later lifetime hears guitar or sees a guitar, there would be a sense of great admiration that may or may not be relevant to the lifetime. However, when a Life Task is chosen, Essence looks across various lifetimes where similar tasks have been approached through similar circumstances in similar Overleaves, and sets up a range of activities that would help support the Personality in its successful fulfillment of the Life Task. Some of these may be cynosures, but they are not automatically cynosures. Did this answer your question, Maureen? Maureen: Yes. Thank you. MEntity: NEXT, Luciana Luciana: Is it possible that a person doesn't have Cynosures? MEntity: No. By the time one is an older soul, one would have hundreds. If there is no recognition of a Cynosure in one's life, it is likely a matter of A ) lack of mobility or access to experiences, people, or perspectives; or B ) lack of trust in the self to honor that which triggers curiosity, excitement, and awe; or C ) because one has a fairly specific Cynosure set up for the life that has not been recognized, yet. NEXT, Ro. Ro: In a way you responded to my question: Can our Enlightenment or Muse Position be Cynosures? How different is the dynamic? Also, can you give us an example of Cynosures from other sentient species (whales/dolphins/off-planet species)? MEntity: Healer, Enlightenment, and Muse Positions can be Cynosures because they are not hidden behind a layer of potential obscuring that would make it difficult to remember. For example, a Love Position may be your Love Position across multiple lifetimes, but in a lifetime where that person is born to be an "asshole," you may not see or feel that admiration, awe, and attention that defines a Cynosure. But Healer, Enlightenment, and Muse Positions tend to be with no layers of obscurity. They are what they are. They trigger awe, admiration, and your attention quite immediately, regardless of how they are presented. Cetaceans have collections of musical notes that tend to be Cynosures. Some parts of the ocean or shores are also Cynosures. Some weather patterns or temperatures in currents can be Cynosures. Caretakers have similar Cynosures to Humans, but with far more Cosmic Cynosures, such as the ecosystem of a planet or the movement of planets in a system. NEXT, Amanda AmandaV: Since 0 isn't an option and we can potentially have hundreds… what's the average number of cynosures for humans? Is there a distinct difference among different soul ages? MEntity: Infant Souls average 1; Baby Souls average about 3; Young Souls average around 21; Mature Souls average around 75; and Old Souls average around 150. NEXT, Ludmila ludmila: Do concurrent lives share the same cynosures chosen during the current life? Like a bleed-through. MEntity: Yes. It is one of the only factors that crosses those distinct lines of existence. FINAL QUESTION: NEXT - Uma Uma: Michael, can we have an update on the IS manifestation, and how you see the pandemic unfolding from your perspective? MEntity: We see all Infinite Soul Hosts as active and taking on the trajectory that would allow for Manifestation. We cannot see if Manifestation is imminent, but these Hosts are likely to make some relevant and meaningful contribution on a scale that goes beyond the obvious even if there is no Manifestation. The only factors we have found that shifts the Manifestation into something more imminent are: an acknowledged mutation of the virus that would spread and kill faster; a war between two (or more) major forces; or the collapse of the internet/electricity networks. These conditions would bring about Manifestation because they are disruptions that would require great focus of direction for recovery. We can see these possibilities because they are extreme but that does not mean they are likely. The other paths to Manifestation are set in far less dramatic scenarios that may be more subtle in effect. We can say that if one of the identified Host becomes central to a major event, it is likely that all Hosts would Manifest within days of that event. We cannot predict this. As for the pandemic: it is not over. It is in a lull and that lull may help gain footing, but it is not over until it is over for the planet. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

  19. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin. Today we are asked to speak about the GOALS in our set of Overleaves. Troy asked us a question recently regarding how to move through or move forward when there are obstacles, struggles, or lack of motivation or meaning. We told him that the solution to nearly all of these questions and obstacles can be found in your GOAL. Though there are a multitude of potential solutions and sources of motivations and meaning, and layers upon layers of why you exist and live this life, the simplest solution, motivation, meaning, and answer to the question "why?" can always be found in your Goal. This is the broadest answer to the WHY of your existence as "You." Your GOAL describes the thread that moves through every single experience. And we emphasize: every. single. experience. There is nothing that you experience in this life that does not feed your Goal. It is fair to say that the "answer to everything is your Goal." And by "everything" we mean the more existential questions of your specific existence in this Personality. For example: if one is devastated by a painful break in a relationship, a loss of a job, or the onset of illness, what do you do with this? Although the answer to these questions can be difficult, complex, and layered, the first place you can look is to your GOAL. What do I do with this? I FLOW, ACCEPT, DISCRIMINATE, RE-EVALUATE, GROW, DOMINATE, SUBMIT. Some of the terms may be obvious in how they would apply, but for such terms as Discriminate, Dominate, and Submit, we will offer some elaboration: "What do I do with this? I discriminate!" Discrimination is all about learning how to effectively say NO, but to effectively say No, one must learn how to say YES. Depending on your circumstances in question, Discrimination means it is either time to say yes or time to say no, but you must choose. "What do I do with this? I Dominate!" DOMINATION is all about learning how to direct your energy in a way that brings out the best in others, which means learning how to bring out the best in yourself. Depending on your circumstances in question, Dominance means it is time to bring out the best in yourself and/or invite the best of others. "What do I do with this? I Submit!" SUBMISSION is all about learning how to direct energy in a way that you are most needed and most effective, which means learning how let others be most needed and most effective for you, too. Depending on your circumstances in question, Submission means it is time to either care for someone or something beyond you or invite/allow someone to care for you. These are highly simplistic examples, but your creative language prompted by your understanding of your Goal can help you to navigate with a clarity that may not have been present without it. EXERCISE: think back over your day, your week, your month, your year, your life and look at it all in light of your Goal. Notice how much you feed your Goal. See your life through the lens of your Goal and you may see a purpose that was always motivating, moving, touching, lifting you forward in your life because you wanted to learn more about these experiences described by your Goal. Your life is all about Acceptance, or Discrimination, or Growth, or Flow, or Dominance, or Submission or Re-evaluation. Of course, your life is much more than this, but there is a beauty and awe that can be found in your life that may have been missed because you were so dedicated to your Goal, so focused on it. Your life is not always in your control and your choices may not always be your own, but your GOAL is yours. In the worst of circumstances and the best of circumstances, this is a part of you that loves existing and experiencing and learning. Turning to your Goal for insights and answers may not give you immediate relief, but it can give you immediate insight and answers that can be built upon to bring relief. Rather than elaborate in more details, we think our students grasp the general idea here. We will now open the floor to questions. ************** QUEUE IS NOW OPEN *************** Uma: Would you please elaborate on the other goals like you did on those? Especially FLOW. MEntity: "What do I do with this?" I accept!" Acceptance is all about learning how to effectively say YES, but to effectively say Yes, one must learn to say NO. Depending on your circumstances in question, Acceptance means it is either time to say yes, or time to say no, but you must choose. Let us be clear here: It is not always the immediate circumstances that are being addressed by these insights. Often the insights are speaking to the larger arc of the experience. For instance, someone who constantly says YES but does not learn how to say yes with honesty can build up stresses and resentments that can create chronic issues in the mind, heart, and body. So when we offer these mini "blurbs" to describe how one might apply this information, think in larger arcs. For example, if one is suffering an illness, it may not reverse one's illness to understand they dynamics of the Goal, but it can A) help one to see the larger arc of experiences that may be tied to the Goal and thus give context to the current experience, and B) help one to make the more detailed choices that must be made within the current circumstances. "What do I do with this? I Grow!" Growth is all about taking on any experience that can contribute to one's evolution. So Growth means it is time to take what you CAN (not just what you WANT) from what you are experiencing and make the most of it. "What do I do with this? I Re-evaluate!" Re-evaluation is all about reducing one's experiences so that one can catch up with oneself. Re-evaluation means it is time to let go of what you CAN, not just what you WANT, from what you are experiencing and make the most of it. "What do I do with this? I Flow!" Flow is all about learning how to RIDE life, not TAME it. Flow means it is time to be a PART of life, not APART from it. To truly Flow, one must always "slide" to another Goal, so understanding how the other Goals work can help one to know which Goal is best for helping hang on for the ride. NEXT, Ro. Ro: Some of us slide to one goal or another. Does the Goal we slide to can change throughout our lifetime? What causes it? And how different is the "flavor" between someone in Acceptance > Growth, from one in Acceptance > Flow? I'm in Acceptance but I can see myself sliding to either Flow or Growth. MEntity: The only Goal that can slide to ANY other Goal is Flow. All other Goals can only slide to that which is on the same Axis, or Flow. So ALL Goals can slide to Flow, but only Flow can slide to all Goals. Keep in mind that your Goal describes what you seek to build in your experiences in this lifetime. That means it is a GOAL, not a character trait that is already completed. For example, someone in Acceptance does not mean they are a person who is friendly, kind, and accepting. It means they are LEARNING to be friendly, kind, and accepting. Someone in Flow is not going to be someone relaxed, easygoing, and chill. They are some of the most high-strung fragments we know, because they are LEARNING to Flow. So in your case, Growth may come naturally to you because that is not your Goal. What is most challenging and where your "lessons" tend to be are in how you can authentically ACCEPT, be accepted, encourage acceptance, etc. For that reason, some of the answers to the question of WHY can be found in your Goal, too. "Why am I experiencing this? Because I came to learn how to authentically accept and be accepted authentically. Acceptance would not slide to Growth, but you may already have quite comfortably established that evolution is a given in your life's experiences. The challenge is in the Acceptance parts. You would slide to Flow when you need to learn how to ride through an experience to the other side if you realize you cannot control it. NEXT, Wendy. Wendy: Can you elaborate even more on seeing our lives through the lens of our goals? Mine is FLOW and my mind just goes blank when I think about it. What you just said about it always sliding to another goal is confusing me even more. MEntity: Flow only "slides" to other Goals as a solution, not just randomly or chaotically. Your Goal will always be FLOW, even if it is slides to another Goal as a way to flow more easily. In short, those with a Goal of Flow are learning how to RELAX. Not as an escape, not as avoidance, not as a way to deny, but as a way to BE. If you are in a car accident and your body is limp, there is far less damage to the body. If there is a storm and a tree is extremely flexible, there is far less damage. If a building is movable and can sway in an earthquake or high winds, there is far less damage. THAT is Flow. If one has FLOW it means that this life is less about learning how to row and more about learning how to steer. The forces of life are strong like a river and one can either hop in a boat and see where it takes you (freedom) or try to swim up river against the flow and essentially stay in the same spot as the current keeps you from moving forward (stagnation). Flow does not mean that life bats you around chaotically in wild winds and raging rivers, but that can often seem the way it is if one is not learning how to steer themselves along the currents and winds. You have seen both sides of yourself in this life: the part of you that feels that life kicks your ass, and the part of you that feels like you caught a nice uplifting wind and you are coasting gracefully forward now. You may always have a sense of dread because you know that life is often an EBB and FLOW, and that the breeze will either die down or turn into a hurricane. But you can let go of the dread because the breeze always returns, too. NEXT, Zahra - (we will end with Meg's question after this) Zahra: I recently quit a side job I had, and since then I was thinking of it in terms of my goal (Flow sliding to Growth) . I can't always quit a job or a project because it doesn't suit my goal. I'm wondering then, how should people go about their careers when it doesn't suit their goals? I'm unsure if sticking with a job is more aligned with Flow or constantly changing course. Since you elaborated on Flow, please include other goals in my questions as well. MEntity: First, EVERYTHING suits your Goal. There are no careers or lack of careers that serve or betray a Goal. The Goal is independent from these details. In other words, if you choose to stay with a career, then Flow can help you to navigate the world of that career. If you choose to leave a career, then Flow can help you to navigate that major change. If a choice is made for you and you lose your job, then Flow can help you to navigate uncertainty. You never have to assess your choices in terms of how well they serve your Goal. Your Goal WILL be served. The question is how can your Goal serve YOU. And that means serving you in any and every circumstance. Your Goal cannot be used to help you make a decision in careers because your Goal does not require special or orchestrated conditions to be served. Your Goal only needs you. Your Goal IS you. To be more specific in response to your question regarding making major choices in career and how the Goal may play into that: you can ask yourself which direction from where you are now feels easier. Not in the sense of laziness or lacking effort, but in the sense of unfolding with the least resistance from within you. This may not always be an easy answer, but it is a start. There is always a direction from where you are, regardless of where you are, that you can go that can unfold with the least resistance, and if you cannot see the path of least resistance, then your goal is to BE less resistant. NEXT, Meg. Meg: Can you please elaborate more on the tension of CAN v. WANT for Goals of both Growth and Re-Evaluation? I understand "WANT" OK I think (e.g., "you can't always get what you want..."). But what about the notion of capacity / limits with the "CAN" aspect that goes along with it? Can you please explain more how CAN works with respect to these two Goals (i.e., Growth & Re-Eval)? Thanks. MEntity: Growth often takes on more than it can handle and then falls into Confusion, the Negative Pole. So it is a matter of learning to take on only what one CAN, even if one WANTS to take on more. Otherwise, you will break a leg. We say this with some jest, but it is true that Growth breaks bones more often than most Goals. Re-evaluation is about simplifying life to the bare minimum so that one can catch up and reflect and see how far evolution has brought them. This means letting go of much more than one may WANT to let go, but the truth is that you probably CAN let go and it would serve Re-evaluation quite well to do so. We think we have responded to questions as well as we can at the moment and must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. We encourage you to explore how your Goal can serve you because we see many of our students often more concerned with how they can serve the Goal. In truth, it will go both ways, but this may be a helpful way to improve your understanding of your Goal. Goodbye, for now.

  20. We have perma-banned another racist. It is impossible to know who is racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. until someone’s actions or words reveal it. But rest assured that I have ZERO tolerance for this crap and zero interest in humoring it. With the emboldening of bigots across the world, it is helping reveal all of the people among us who have been quietly hiding out in loving communities like ours, and hiding behind great teachings like Michael’s. But more and more often they confidently reveal themselves with the assumption that our love means giving them a pass and hearing them out. Nope. That’s not how love works. Buh-bye...

  21. I got my first vaccination recently and made me wonder who else has received their vaccination, either in part of full. Let us know: if you have received yours where you are and what brand you received There's a light at the end of the tunnel... maybe it's another train coming, I don't know, but I'm hoping it's just a glorious bright new day.

  22. Hi everyone, For my 40th birthday this year, I wanted to do something more than I usually do for my birthday...which is basically just go out for a meal. I thought about throwing a party in person, but the truth is, I don't have that many close local friends. Many of my most meaningful relationships are online with people from this community. So I decided to throw an online party and invite you all! DATE: Sunday, July 4, 2021 TIME: 12 pm to 3-ish pm Eastern (This is the same day/time as our weekly TLE Talks chats.) Party Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81687595874?pwd=QzBoL1RpYjRjekJqeW9oYUp3YW9TUT09 ACTIVITIES: The biggest feature here is really our beautiful selves and the camaraderie we have with fellow like-minded students we've spent eons with in and out of bodies. BUT, we can do that every week, so for this special occasion, I've brought in a couple of our TLE friends for some fun Old soul activities. Mini Tarot or Astrology Readings with @Nick Sweeney (Babylove) Babylove will be giving 20-minute tarot or astrology readings for party attendees over the 3-hour period. Since we only have 6 slots available, I'll do a random drawing of people who are interested. If you'd like a reading during the party, fill out this form to be added to the list: https://forms.gle/FwLkUtPgstB6Mt286 (form will close on Monday, June 28th so I have time to get the info to Nick).The readings will take place in a private breakout room separate from the main party. Intuitive Art Class with @Rosario Ro will be giving us a one-hour intuitive art class during the middle of the party (from 1 to 2 pm Eastern). This is a way of connecting with our Essences while bypassing linear thought and logic, since messages come through colors and shapes that we can then interpret. Participation is optional, but I encourage you to play with us! Even you don't think of yourself as intuitive or artistic, it's a meditative exercise with no wrong way to do it. Here's an explanation of intuitive art and examples on Ro's website: https://rosealiaga.com/intuitiveart/ During the class we will: Start with an explanation and short meditation on colors. Create our own Color Meaning Chart Ask questions to our Essences and channel the answers/cryptic messages in a quick 15- to 30-second drawing. Start an intuitive art project and create for 10-15 min. Materials needed: Materials are preferably colored pencils, pastels or crayons, starting with the basic colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, white, black, brown, grey + a few other colors you might have. regular sheets of white paper, size A4 or bigger /or notebook for the intuitive art project, you can also use watercolors or gouache if you wish, and a sturdier surface (180gr to 350gr paper or cardboard) should be used accordingly. if you feel called to, bring a crystal or gemstone you like. Last But Not Least -- Michael Trivia Game! How well do you know your overleaves? Michael Math? Human origins history?? Let's find out with an ultra-low-stakes, winner-takes-nothing contest where the only person you play against...is yourself. Meaning this is just for fun and there is no scoring involved. Just for Fun One of the highlights of parties for me is the sharing of food, but because we can't do that over Zoom, I invite you to bring a cupcake and your own party food so we can all eat together. No RSVP is necessary, but feel free to comment here to let me know you're coming!

  23. Thanks for asking Diane!! We needed this today. For those wondering about the specific Soul Age responsibility for the Old Soul, here is an excerpt from a Michael Speaks on Soul Ages and Responsibility on August 27, 2016. OLD SOULS The priority Responsibility for the Old Soul is TO CARE. By the time one has become an Old Soul and by the time the capacity for Awareness is so high, the Responsibility to Care becomes quite challenging. It is not that the Old Soul does not or would not care, but quite the opposite. They can feel as if they "care too much." The Positive Pole here is RECOGNITION. The Negative Pole here is APATHY. When the Old Soul cares in a way that is healthy, there is Recognition, validation, acknowledgement, etc. You know why you care, you know what you care about, and you know why it is important to care. You do not fault yourself for caring, but Recognize its value, its importance, its necessity. It is also a path to Recognition of Essence in the self and others. You cannot Recognize the existence, the Essence, the value, the meaning, the reality of another or the self without Caring. When you feel you care too much or do not wish to be responsible for Caring, you can fall into Apathy, or the shutting down or narrowing of what you care about. But you must, eventually, own the Responsibility that comes with Caring. It is not easy, and it is not always pleasant, but it matters and it informs you of the choices you can make that contribute to the well-being of all other Responsibilities. As an Old Soul you may have Caring as the priority Responsibility, but you are now so Aware that you know you are also Responsible for sustaining your Curiosity, and embracing your Self-Reliance, Confidence, Expression, and your Loving.

  24. With the recent info obtained by @petra on the Archive Septet (see Petra's session and my own), I'm feeling validated in a project that I've been working on for several years now. Yes, the books are still a project, and someday we'll get them done. TeamTLE has lately been discussing the need to focus on just one book first, given our limited resources, and we have a candidate for this. (Don't discuss the books in this thread ... there's a topic out there somewhere for a book discussion, although I really don't have much more to say right now than what I just said.) But I've also been working on actual TLE archives, so that everything Michael has said via Troy is offloaded into a place that provides a backup mechanism for future retrieval. These archive docs, which are still entirely in process, have been my personal project since about 2017, when I discovered a method to systematically locate every item on the site to review and pull out Michael material. The archives are organized into years based on when Michael supplied the info, and I'm trying to format them into consistent, readable documents while also creating indexes that eventually will allow us to find material without having the explicit phrasing needed to use the search function. I haven't pulled anything from the site since 2019 because, well ... it's already a ton of material: 1999-2005 = 926 pages 2006-2010 = 716 pages 2011 = 729 pages 2012 = 1,718 pages 2013 = 857 pages 2014 = 956 pages 2015 = 666 pages 2016 = 909 pages 2017 = 980 pages 2018 = 880 pages 2019 = 96 pages I'm still finding older material, so the page numbers could still grow, and of course there's still very much to collect since 2019 ... and yet already over 9,000 formatted and partially formatted pages. (Don't show this to @Troy. He's never ready to believe how much Michael material he has generated.) Please note that the archives are not just transcripts from public sessions over the years. They also include all the material so generously shared by TLE members from their personal sessions. (Another thing we have Geraldine to thank for: her encouragement to post private sessions.) I am keeping track of contributors and plan to include a blurb about each one of them in the archives -- I hope this will help us find ourselves from future lives. So ... remember those sessions you received and haven't got around to posting here? Or perhaps you posted something on an earlier TLE site but haven't managed to repost to the current site yet. (I do have copies of some of those older posts that are not yet reposted, but I know we missed saving some stuff from the old sites.) If you want to be in the archives, perhaps you should make it a priority to post sooner than later. Maybe you think some of your material isn't useful to anyone but you ... but would it be helpful to a future you? And for very long-time TLE members: we are missing public sessions from the Yahoo days and earlier. Do you have any saved up that are not currently posted on TLE? For now, this is very much a personal project, but at some point I might find a way to share the load with some Microsoft Word experts. And don't worry about my work being lost: there are a couple of people who have access to these documents to allow them to be retrieved and picked up where I left off when I finally must set them aside. I'm not at all sure they will be "complete" in my lifetime.

  25. I found out about this teaching several years ago. Since then a few beliefs I had are gone. Replaced by something more...pragmatic, I guess. I used to believe that everything happens for a reason. Now I believe things happen because of the choices we all make. Our “reasons” are our decisions. I used to believe in destiny. Now I believe there’s no such thing and our lives are determined by our choices for the most part. Even when we feel boxed in a corner we can still make decisions. I used to believe in soul mates but now I believe we have many significant connections and any and all of them can feel special. Connectedness is what we make of it. I now feel like organized chaos describes our universe, our world, our lives more than anything and that’s okay. It makes the most sense to me somehow. Thinking that randomness has more power over our lives than fate makes the choices we make seem more significant somehow. Somehow that’s all really comforting to me. No one controls anything, everyone controls something. I embrace paradoxes a lot more now. I worry a little less now over “spiritual” ideas. For the most part none of it matters all that much in the grand scheme of things. If a quark can spin in opposite directions simultaneously then it doesn’t matter which direction is the real one. They both are. All that to say my biggest takeaway from this teaching is that we have choices. Our choices drive our lives. We’re free to make choices or to not make choices, and they matter more than whatever abstract ideas people have about life the universe and everything. In other words our choices matter. They matter even when they don’t matter. It also seems kind of absurd that we have to learn how to choose, but it’s an interesting concept all the same. I’m curious to know what other people’s takeaways are from this teaching too. So care to share?

  28. Same. The exact same piece hit me and as I read it, I recalled this feeling from this morning: "I felt something for myself today for the first time. Actual love. I was reflecting and told myself how excited and happy I am to be me. How wonderful and compassionate and caring of a person I've become. Could someone check if hell has frozen over? I never thought I'd tell myself how lucky I am to be me."

  30. FACEBOOK SESSION 082121 Afghanistan Questions (submitted by Ani through FB) NOTE: I had invited people to pose any questions for me to consider for Michael, but no one else really posed any questions, so I went with the organized set that @Anirudh posted! Thank you for doing that, Ani! 1. Will the Taliban change once they gain power? Will they adopt an attitude of pragmatism and try to govern well (while being highly authoritarian) like the Chinese and the Russians, or will they adopt Sharia law based on "literal truths" of the Quran, Hadiths, and Sira? FROM MICHAEL: We cannot predict, but we can say that a more pragmatic approach is likely minimally considered, and only in terms of buying time, leverage, false trust that can be exploited, etc. There is a sense that some compliance and communication and compromise are necessary for some stability so that this will allow for better anchoring of the party. Beyond this, the momentum of motivation will not be thrown out as a means to be legitimized and recognized. Ultimately, there is no concern beyond those minimal, practical concerns because there is the indoctrination of righteous superiority that renders most “others” to be tolerated at best, and disposable otherwise. 2. Will the Taliban continue to smuggle drugs to fund weapons purchasing and recruiting, or will they end these practices due to their religious beliefs? FROM MICHAEL: We cannot predict, but we can say that as with many religions, the ends justify the means, and the continuation of any practices that violate religious beliefs are easily overlooked if it serves those in power. We doubt that these practices will discontinue any time soon. 3. What does the future of the region look like for the next few decades? You said COVID-19 has sown the seeds to take down religion and the world is moving towards spirituality based on individual paths. Will that continue to be the case for Central Asia and South Asia, or are they moving towards fundamentalist religion and governance? FROM MICHAEL: The changes indicated in your question are coming to the entire planet, though some regions may be more resistant than others, and may take another 100 years for full effect. This is not a prediction but is a matter of patterns that are well underway and fairly sustained. Central Asia and South Asia will likely require difficult uprisings and external support necessary for a new paradigm to be anchored. The collapse, disintegration, and/or evolution of organized religion is well underway, but this does not mean that tyrannical groups fueled by religious zeal will go away. In fact, they will likely rise in various areas around the world as a last effort to survive. Religions require compliance and numbers to survive and this is why force and oppression are the most common methods for sustaining their existence. A Mature Soul world is done with compliance and oppression and any system in place to uphold this will collapse. But many will not allow these to collapse quietly. In short, the regions in question are heading toward more liberation but likely not without great resistance. 4. Will the Taliban be able to retain grassroots support for their ideology and government in Afghanistan? FROM MICHAEL: No, and we expect great bloodshed and harm to those in opposition. We have said that those resisting change will amplify their efforts to resist change, but those seeking change are not going to give up.. The region in question will not go quietly and it is likely women who will pave the path to liberation. 5. What impact will this have on the world at large in the short, medium, and long term? FROM MICHAEL: We do not know, but we can say that it will be just another thing that is happening in the world and blur into the paralyzing information glut that is in effect or it will become a symbolic focus for the evolution of international governments toward more Mature Soul tactics for securing Human Rights in regions where they are in clear violation. We think this event may contribute to a more secure and clarified global consideration for how to handle Human Rights violations. In the Young Soul paradigm there needed to be a clear benefit to those who helped the region, such as oil, resources, war profiteering, etc. but a Mature Soul paradigm sees people as the priority. Until now, humans were either a path to profit or not, and this determined the value of their lives to those in power. This is changing. Slowly. The past 20 years or so of support for the region have been rooted in profits, not people. The shift toward people as the priority is here and we do not know how it will show up yet.

  31. BREAKING: TLEGG2020 [online] WILL NOW BE HELD DECEMBER 11, 12, and 13, 2020 After several instances of community feedback and after serious deliberation with TeamTLE, we have decided to push TLEGG to December. Many people are currently experiencing a wave of overwhelm and stress and feel they would not be able to enjoy the gathering as they would like to enjoy it. I do not want TLEGG to be an experience of pressure or stress or to compete with anyone's stress or pressures. This also gives us more time to coordinate and create the best experience possible for attendees. Many also feel that it is important to wait until after the November elections in the U.S. so that TLEGG will either be a tremendous celebration or an important retreat to help gain perspective for how to move forward if things do not go well. Crossing fingers for a celebration! Thank you for your understanding and support. More details to come!

  32. Dear fucking sweet baby Jesus did this just nail the US squarely in its sights. The Texas abortion bullshit. Combined with the delusional right taking horse dewormer. The hurricane slamming into Louisiana. One of the least vaccinated and most racist places in the U.S. I mean talk about trauma. Wildfires burning the West because of the climate trauma we have caused. This, without a doubt, is one of the energy reports that I have seen directly applicable to now. I mean they all are. It is just this one was like a 2x4 to the face in how obviously it fits. I just get frustrated. Because 2050 or 2025. And I wanna scream shit needs to change yesterday. It is so frustrating how calcified the US government is. How bought by corporations it is. How it is so disconnected from the people that all they seems to care about is the $$$ in thier accounts. Don't know where I am going with this. Just amazed right now and how well it fits.

  33. Sometimes I find old sessions in the documents on my pc, like this one that showed up a few days ago. This is an old session that was posted on the TLE-ning by Troy. It can now also be found in the TLE Library here. November 25, 2007 From Troy: Because of my recent move into my new apartment, I found myself going through a lot of notebooks and papers that contain years and years of channelling before the wonders of online record keeping and blogging and chat transcripts. Among the scribble notes and half-transcripts from cassette recordings now long gone, I found part of a live session transcribed about "Healing the Wounds that Block Prosperity." This original session from Michael in 1997 talked about 4 major areas of the life that help give clues to our primary assumptions about the universe and how we relate to it in terms of manifesting prosperity. Only two areas were transcribed, so to get the complete session would mean asking Michael for it all over again, which I intend to do, but for now, I thought I'd share part of the information as it relates to our Chief Negative Features (basic fears). The piece below is a start to the rechannelling of the information from 1997. What you are reading below is from 2007, using notes from 1997 as a guide for my posing the subject to Michael. Healing The Wounds that Block Prosperity (a preview) From Michael: Many of our students are interested in the concept of "manifesting" as it relates to creating a life of prosperity, abundance, and happiness as if this is a skill that must be learned. "Manifesting" is not a skill that needs to be learned, but is an inherent quality that is either used consciously or unconsciously. Manifesting happens 100% of the time that you are alive (and even when you are not), but you either manifest by default (unconsciously choosing or allowing) or through creativity (consciously choosing or allowing). Most find their days to be spent in routines, drama, and/or superficialities so this powerful tool falls to the default and all prosperity is then sourced and filtered through basic assumptions that have gone unquestioned or unhealed about ones relationship to the universe. We will define "Prosperity" as "any sense of personal freedom to act, feel, or think within the context of your material, emotional, or intellectual world." This definition then varies greatly from one fragment to the next. Though there are 4 areas to which one can look for clues as to what ones primary assumptions are about the universe's abundance, today we will offer insights from the area of your basic fears; your Chief Negative Features. Your Chief Negative Features are merely habitual responses from your Personality toward what you have deemed threatening. Depending on what you find to be most threatening, you will enlist a response that you feel protects you from the threat; hence, the 7 Chief Negative Features. Through understanding what you believe is a threat to you, and how you respond to that threat, can help greatly in your freeing yourself from reactionary relationships with the universe, allowing room for more conscious choosing, thus allowing for greater control over what is manifested, or created. Remember: "creating your own reality" is simply a phrase to describe the power of CHOICE. Though there is validity to the scientific explorations of this phenomenon, the level from which the Personality can relate and create is through CHOICE, and to do so consciously is the most effective means of "creating your reality." There are 7 Chief Negative Features and each are enlisted as protection against natural forces within your world that are not necessarily threatening. However, once one has determined that this natural force is a threat, a person can spend his or her entire life protecting oneself from experiencing it. The 7 Chief Negative Features are: ARROGANCE - fear of BEING too much (vulnerability, over-exposure, being seen too closely) SELF-DEPRECATION - fear of BEING too little (inadequacy, failing standards, being invisible) IMPATIENCE - fear of LOSING CONTROL of Time (getting old, running out of time, missing out) MARTYRDOM - fear of LOSING CONTROL of Space (other people's choices, imposition, wounds) SELF-DESTRUCTION - fear of HAVING too much (taking too much, undeserving, unworthy) GREED - fear of HAVING too little (not enough of something specific, lack of recognition, unfairness) STUBBORNNESS - fear of CHANGE (anything new, different, unexpected) As one becomes an independent force in the world, one finds his or her particular fears relate to BEING, CONTROL, HAVING, and/or CHANGE. All fears are capable of being enlisted at any time, but a fragment usually fixates on two Chief Negative Features as they relate to the areas of ones goals in life and ones experience of intimacy and relationships (a primary and a secondary chief negative feature.) If one has identified the Primary and Secondary Chief Negative Features, one can bring a consciousness to that particular block to prosperity. It could be said that the Primary Chief Negative Feature relates to ones experience of prosperity EXTERNALLY, while the Secondary Chief Negative Feature relates to one's INTERNAL sense of prosperity. So while externally one might be abundant, the internal may contradict that abundance. The same can be said of ones having an internal sense of abundance about life, but his or her Primary Chief Negative Feature blocks prosperity externally. The latter is common among Older Souls. It is also important to note that the External relates to the prosperity experienced within the world, while the Internal relates to prosperity in Relationships. So, for instance, even if one feels generally prosperous internally ABOUT THE WORLD, he or she may still find lack in the area of Relationships. Here, then, are the internal assumptions that come along with each Chief Negative Feature that may hold clues for how one might bring consciousness to the equation and make new choices when one feels threatened in the world. These phrases help describe why you believe you ultimately cannot get what you want. ARROGANCE: "If I gain prosperity, it will bring unwanted attention to me through judgments and criticism." Arrogance uses any success as a threat to separate oneself from others in a defining, obvious way, so even with success, this fear can reduce the enjoyment tremendously as it threatens vulnerability. Arrogance does not want the responsibility for managing the prosperity. SELF-DEPRECATION: "I really don't deserve this. I didn't really do anything to have this. I still haven't earned the right." Success here brings with a haunting sense of guilt for not being adequate enough to have attained it. Self-deprecation does not feel it can be responsible enough to manage what comes with success. IMPATIENCE: "If I focus too much here, I will miss out over there." Impatience has the fragment weaving through life trying so desperately to manage the experiences of Time that no time is made for what is most wanted. MARTYRDOM: "With success comes inevitable disaster." Martyrdom has the fragment spending so much time reducing the life to what can be controlled that it finds little room for anything broader than that. SELF-DESTRUCTION: "It's just not worth the effort." Because Self-Destruction already feels that his or her life is of no value compared to others', there is no interest in having more. GREED: "This isn't enough, or what I wanted, after all." Greed always has the fragment perceiving that 'the grass is greener' somewhere else and does not acknowledge the progress toward prosperity, reducing experiences to always having better results elsewhere or elsehow. STUBBORNNESS: "Wanting means Change means Scary." Success is seen as unknown territory that could leave the fragment lost, so reducing the experience of wanting vs having helps keep the sense of familiar and false security. Taking a look at the phrases and simple interpretations may shed some light on the undercurrents within your life that block prosperity. Some of you may find yourself experiencing the descriptions to varying degrees of extreme or subtlety. The most effective and immediate means of dismantling your fearful habits is to consciously make a note of your Positive Pole of your Attitude (see BASIC INTRO for more information, if necessary). The Attitude is the key within your Personality that is directly linked to all fears. Once the Attitude has slipped into the Negative Pole, the inner protectors come forth in the form of the Chief Negative Features. It can easily be said that if you are struggling to have what you want, it may relate directly to the Chief Negative Feature that you have brought in to protect you. As long as having what you want is related to a root threat, you will find ways to protect yourself from that very thing. What one must do to redirect the choices and behaviours is to first gain consciousness of the undercurrent and then to update the self with new possibilities that are not based on past experiences or fears. This may take some time and energy, but these are abundant in the universe, and yours to use as necessary. If you are not getting what you want, it is almost always rooted in a prejudice or assumption that you have made about your relationship, whether this was developed by you, or was taught to you, is not the issue. The solution is in your efforts, your patience, your compassion and gentleness toward yourself as you redirect your choices with consciousness, keeping in mind that how you respond to life's disappointments is also a matter of choice. - Michael

  34. This has been in the news this week: Israeli says aliens exist (Google Israeli and aliens and you'll get more.) I find this interesting because Michael has indicated that a Galactic Federation exists, and much of what the Israeli source said seems to align with Michael's statements. The only thing I find questionable is the statement that Trump knows and wanted to reveal the truth, but the aliens convinced him not to do it because humans aren't ready. There is not a chance in the world that Trump would not reveal something because "humans aren't ready." So perhaps he knows, but I guarantee he was convinced to keep quiet for some reason that is to his benefit or for some reason that scared the shit out of him. ### Update from same day: I just finished a session with Michael and asked about this news item. Here is the Q&A: JanetE: In the news right now, an Israeli has claimed that it is true that aliens exist, that there is something like a Galactic Federation, that they have been working with US and other governments for years. Most statements seem very like what you have told us. However, the agent also said that Trump knows about this and was persuaded not to tell. Is this latter info true, and, if so, what could have possibly persuaded him not to tell? MEntity: From what we can see, his only motivation for withholding information is for fear of others laughing at him. Regardless of how many currently do laugh at him, he has a large base that takes him seriously. The fear that this base may be fractured or lost due to such claims is a motivation for withholding any information. Other than this, we do not see that he knows anything in particular in the first place.

  36. THE BAD NEWS: TLEGG ONLINE IS CANCELLED I am extremely disappointed and saddened to say that there will be no TLEGG2020, online or otherwise, after all. It turns out that a lot of us are too fatigued from the year and would rather coast out the rest of the year in a more restful mode and regroup again for plans for 2021. People have Zoom fatigue and despite our lock downs and quarantines and shut downs, we are finding ourselves way too busy and distracted for a full weekend event online. So... we are calling it off to accommodate our well-being. I know if we went ahead and had the gathering, we would probably enjoy it enough, but I don't want our first event to be a disaster. There are too many moving parts and so much planning involved and dependency on technology that many TLE people have trouble using, so I have a better idea. THE GOOD NEWS: TLEGG Online is still going to happen, but it will just be TLEGG2021. The original plans for TLEGG Online has sparked ideas that can be implemented more regularly across 2021 and help everyone slowly come on board and be prepared for a bigger event when we have one. I will announce details soon, but the idea is to experiment with various smaller events and see what works and then build on those to create a bigger event. Some ideas in the works are: MICHAEL VIEWS THE NEWS: a regularly-scheduled youtube talk show with guest students and channels to cover current events from Michael's perspective (not a channeling event) SPOTLIGHT STUDENTS: turning the spotlight on a student who wishes to offer other students a live YouTube talk, Q&A, class, etc. MOVIE NIGHT: gathering together to watch a synchronized streaming movie while chatting (you will have the option to ignore chat during movie, if you prefer to chat after). MICHAEL SPEAKS LIVE VIDEO: A Michael Speaks, but via video and co-hosted by a moderator for reading questions from students. More ideas are being considered. If we can pull off these standalone events successfully, then we can plan a larger event with confidence and ensure a stable, exciting, and fun weekend together. I am very sorry about the cancellation, but this year was a mess and I think we all just want to breathe it gently out and let it go. But let's see what we can do to create a wonderful 2021 together! What do you think of the 2021 ideas? Do you have any ideas you would like to see?

  37. This is...spot on for me. Last week all I wanted to do was revisit and reflect on past memories and cry constantly. I just wanted to stay in bed. But this weekend, we changed the rooms around and are literally sorting things out and there is all the random room detritus that shows up at such times My mood (and the rooms) are starting to look and feel better. Best of all, the living room is much brighter, thanks to some mirrors, just in time for the solstice in a few weeks.

  40. I just came back from running an errand to a pharmacy. While I was there I noticed a couple of young boys (12 yrs maybe?) in an aisle picking up snacks. They had their T-Shirts pulled up over their faces which didn't register with me at the time. When I was checking out the boys were finished and came to line up behind me at the required distance. The clerk started to tell them, firmly but nicely, that they weren't allowed in the store without masks. They seemed embarrassed and asked if they could still buy what they had come in for and she said yes but was not happy with them. I remembered that @Diane had (very generously) given me a couple of packets of disposable masks last year one of which I had in my purse. I checked that they were there (I had exactly two left!!) and then asked the boys if they would like a mask. They seemed relieved and said, yes, they would. They thanked me nicely and that was that. I had no desire to lecture them on mask wearing or say anything other than that they could keep them and reuse them again (in case they didn't know that). It felt like such a nice simple easy thing to do. I had no idea when I put the masks in my purse that I would be offering them at any time to anyone else as they were for personal use. As I was leaving the store the clerk (who had noticed) told them to thank me again and they did. Such a simple thing. I'm not sure this is altruism but it made me feel good.

  41. Thank You @Troy for gifting us with "Michael Speaks" The info given is rich and promising to tend the field of a new Paradigm, that Human Sentience "never" tended before, no one fragment of the Human Design, has ever lived in a Mature Soul World/Universe!!! As an Obstetric I want to weave into what @Nadine / Michael mentioned about the process of Birth, we have and always had TOOLS, in the widest sense of the word, to help giving Birth, less bloody, painful, overwhelming, chaotic and heavy. The world is pregnant with the Mature Soul Paradigm, and as a pregnant woman can not outrun or deny, that she has to give birth, the child going right "through" her, (it will not come out of her head, this is not being done intellectual, but literally physical). We all can become the Midwife helping with the tools Michael mentioned above to make this birth as smooth as possible, or ending up in a Sectio Caesarean, with more loss of blood, a very big wound to heal and to recover from. There is a Celebration, a feast awaiting us, I have never seen a mother after giving birth, her newborn in her arms, without a big smile, tears of joy...........the promise of a new life, never known before, I wish that prospect keeps us going and giving it all we've got!!!

  42. I have been exhausted over the past few weeks but doing my best to keep moving forward and to be optimistic. I would like to see a future that includes the well-being of all of Earth's creatures/lifeforms instead of a mass extinction. I am not certain how we will get there but I know that I do not want to give up on the Earth or my own life. The zoonotic origins of this pandemic should be a reminder of the fractured relationship between humans and animals/Earth. Otherwise without facing that truth, eventually our species will be facing another pandemic. From the January 26, 2020 Open Floor: "MEntity: In terms of its physical and metaphysical causes, they are the same as most diseases that originate from the enslavement of animals: deep disconnection with nature. Nearly all animal-borne viruses that jump to human rise from a disregard for the well-being of creatures. In physical terms, this is caused by poor conditions and high stress from the animals suffering. In metaphysical terms, reception to the virus rises as humans distance themselves from the suffering caused. All forms of slavery will have repercussions on all involved and will never be capable of being sustained." Thank you, @Troy for the Energy Report!

  43. An end to capitalism by 2050 sounds pretty good to me. The sooner, the better.

  45. I appreciate this response. I think it depends on one's position in society and our distance from being targets of these Right Wing ideologies as to how well these tactics would work. This "how-to" would never work for me, but I hope it helps someone else. I would love to feel some kind of peace in imaginary conversations, getting on with my life while waiting for bigotry to die or somehow be okay with navigating the landmines of the compartmentalized and delusional brain of a bigot, but this doesn't feel right. But the truth is that nothing is going to feel right for how we deal with such an avalanche of bigotry and hate, especially when it is revealed to be a part of loved ones. Nothing is going to feel right because bigotry forces us to draw on parts of ourselves that are not natural to people who are inclusive, loving, progressive, and ethical. It feels wrong to reject them and it feels wrong to accept them. I try to straddle a middle ground of loving from a distance. I suppose the gentlest way to navigate all of this madness is to use the "how-to" shared here, since it helps keep us at a distance. For those of us who don't have that option of distance, we have to use other tactics, like: drawing hard lines on clear boundaries communicating effectively and loudly in support of marginalized peoples being willing to call out and hold accountable those who practice or express hateful ideologies, even if they are family removing and shutting bigots out from our personal space, however much we may love or accept them as relatives or acquaintances etc. I'm only adding this because I think it's important to understand that our life circumstances and different positions in society often dictate the type of strategy we have to/are able to use for dealing with those who wish to harm others/us. Sometimes those who have to deal with the messier parts of the fight get double the weight of this madness because our peers try to tell us "to be nice," "just accept them," "that's not loving" or "so much for being an old soul" or "you are just adding to the fear" or "you aren't helping the racists by banning them" or "it doesn't matter if they are racist, they are family and you should love them..." Etc. etc... That kind of stuff. Whatever works for all of you, do what you have to do to manage your sanity, heart, and head.

  46. Wow, that Re-evaluation bit is very relevant and explains a lot of what I have been feeling. I am very surprised that there is no mention of the Infinite Soul in this report. I expected it would either be escalating, or that it would be in a holding pattern, or winding down, but there is just no mention! Maybe the process is a lot longer and more drawn out than I thought, and a month can go by with no real change in the situation.... I've been really impatient for updates!
