  1. New York City Michael Speaks—Open Forum 2017-06-24 Channeled by Troy Tolley TRANSCRIBED FROM LIVE AUDIO RECORDING by @DanielaS MEntity: Give us a few moments to secure our delivery through Troy. But in the meantime, we can begin. And we understand that the topic will be varied tonight. So, we will begin with opening the floor in general. Cary: I have been wondering how people who endure extremes of crappy stuff, like slaves in the United States—their lives were not great—and I have wondered why didn’t they just commit mass suicide? What made them keep going? And so to extrapolate from that, what can people do to get inspiration when their lives suck that bad, or if they feel their lives suck that bad? What keeps people from suiciding when their lives suck? MEntity: There are two responses that we have to that question to cover two types of scenarios for most who are in situations that you describe: One may seem rather cliché, but it is cliché because it is true... that many continue for Love. There are families, there are bonding processes in place, there are scenarios of hope, and this is stronger than it may seem when faced with such dire and torturous circumstances. It can get you to the next day. A simple, very simple direct line to Love. Not only Love for another individual sharing the life of the person who is suffering but an effort to develop this Love for the self as well. MEntity: In many cases like what you describe, the conclusive end to their life is not something that is focused on. There is an intention to make it better for reasons of Love. And so that will, in many cases, and in most cases, help one to get from one day to the next and these simply add up. MEntity: The coordination for a mass suicide is something that would not be easy to accomplish. It would seem like a simple answer or a simple solution to halt such atrocities on a large scale but that type of coordination is not possible. MEntity: The other answer that we can give is: simple biological survival. It is very difficult for the body to give in to suicidal tendencies unless a person is broken to a level of no return. The body's entire point of existence is to exist. Its entire point is to get to the next day. MEntity: So, whether for Love or for survival, many get to the next day. And these days simply accumulate into being a life, even if the life was never outside of the confines of oppression or torture or suffering. MEntity: What counts at the end of that life is the effort to love even more than the effort to rebel. MEntity: And whether done consciously or subconsciously it is programmed into every fragment to either allow the body to do its work to survive or for the consciousness to do its work to love. And that is how you survive many situations. MEntity: Does this answer your question? Cary: Yes. Thank you. Cyprus: Shanequa? Shanequa: Can you give me a story of creation? MEntity: We know of no beginning. We are still looking for that as well, in terms of consciousness existing and why we exist at all. We are still looking for this in our own studies. MEntity: In terms of your universe, the Big Bang Theory is the closest to being accurate and this is still not quite accurate. So, the short answer is that the Big Bang Theory is the closest that is accurate. The consciousness that exists in your universe that you know, such as us and such as you, existed even before the universe, and this collective consciousness that is all of us (and this is going to be rather grand in scope to comprehend), participated in the manipulation of matter, physics, in creating a universe. MEntity: However, there is a lot more intentional manipulation involved in the process that is not as random as science would describe it. It takes a great deal of work and a great deal of “time” to manipulate an evolution of matter and to bring together a combination of elements to create a trajectory of life, to create a planet, to create a solar system and so forth. But we did it. MEntity: And those who try to explain creation in terms of some higher force doing the work may personify that force and that process and may simplify it, but it is fairly accurate in terms of the fact that all of us contributed to what we have as a platform of existence in this universe. MEntity: To go any deeper into that creation process would require greater focus and we are not certain if we have responded accurately to your question. Shanequa: You’ve definitely given me some good insight on how the beginnings were. Definitely. MEntity: We do not think we were that clear. [Laughter] Cyprus: Well, the fact that we participated in the creation of the Big Bang is interesting information. Shanequa: And it not being like some random thing. In choosing to have this evolution happen is not random then. MEntity: Yes, because there are other versions, other universes, that have a very different set of physics, a very different set of what we would describe as a “platform of existence.” And consciousness exists there as well. Our collective conscious from our ultimate origins has parallels of itself that are far beyond most imagination limits that any individual has and it’s difficult to describe these because we have no real reference from our platform of existence. Cyprus: Bobby, do you have a question? BFBobby: I know this could serve as a whole session onto itself, but can you provide just a general overview or explanation of what Life Plans are and how they work into the overleaves? MEntity: Yes, we use the term or the phrase Life Plan to describe a cyclical process of accessing what you might define as your “purpose” over a period of time. These happen in seven-year cycles, but we describe them in five-year cycles because five years of the seven tend to be the active years. Two years buffer sometimes at the end, sometimes at the beginning, and sometimes as one-year bookends to the five years. However, those 2 additional years are arranged we describe these as “The Void” that is a part of that cyclical process of creating and defining the life or bringing meaning to it, or purpose. MEntity: All of you are at some point in your Life Plan and that Life Plan has a theme. The Life Plan is something that is a co-creative process with Essence. It is not dictated to you. It is not assigned to you. But it tends to be a pattern that unfolds in your life with or without conscious participation. MEntity: We like to share the Life Plan with our students who ask so that they can see the greater patterns of their lives or the patterns that may be in place at the time, or so they understand that The Void is in effect where one is re-evaluating where one is with one’s sense of purpose or one’s sense of meaning in life. MEntity: The most we can go further with that concept is to speak to each of you individually about where you are and what the theme is for your Life Plan. Cyprus: I think that’d be cool, but I have a question. Do they correlate then to the Monads in a certain way, as you’re going through your Internal Monads? MEntity: They are not synced with the Internal Monads. But we can say that the more one is participating in the themes of the Life Plan the more one tends to be in the positive poles of completion for an Internal Monad, and vice versa. Cyprus: Oh interesting! MEntity: However, a Life Plan will continue to be in place, even when between Internal Monads when they are not active. Cyprus: But I like the concept that if you’re more, that if you participate more and you’re more aware and more awake, I guess, and more present in your Life Plan it . . . MEntity: Most of you know what your Life Plan is at the moment. It tends to be something that is distracting. It tends to be something that is quietly nagging at you or speaking to you, hinting to you, bringing various elements of life to your attention as a way to fulfill that Life Plan. It does not even have to have a name or a clear objective. But you know what it is because it tends to come to mind on a regular basis. MEntity: And if we were going to speak to each of you individually about your Life Plan we could ask each of you to sum up in a phrase, as succinctly as possible, what is on your mind on a regular basis that seems to be important to you. And this is likely tied to whatever is active as a Life Plan at the moment. This is an exercise we offer up to you to share in if you choose to. Cyprus: Does anyone know what they think theirs might be? Cary: This is different from the Life Task? Cyprus: Yes. BFBobby: I have my sentence. What’s nagging at me is I want to create, obviously. But I want to create something beautiful and meaningful and evocative, not just for myself but, and I don’t know if that’s a physical thing or an intangible thing, but I want to create something that betters the world or has a positive impact on the world and people around me. MEntity: In your case, we think you are coming out of a two-year period that we could describe as the Void. The Void is where one is figuratively climbing a ladder with the focus on your foot between rungs. And that suspension of your foot is no indication of whether you are halted or not. It will continue to the next rung, but it can feel as if you are in limbo. It can feel as if you are in some sort of space that is contemplative and philosophical in its nature because you are trying to figure out what to do with this new seed that is tied to a new layer of a Life Plan or a new theme of a Life Plan. You are coming out of that in August and this will start your next five years of the Life Plan where it will focus in more tangible ways on what you have described as creating in ways that are fulfilling and make a difference on your terms. MEntity: We are looking for a phrase that may describe this in a more succinct way. The closest that we can come to at the moment is a very simple phrase and that is HELPING OTHERS. The theme is that you want to HELP OTHERS, that there is a focus on HELPING OTHERS. This may be familiar to many of our students but in our response to you right now that is what your Life Plan could be described as being over the next five years: to focus on implementing how you will HELP OTHERS. Cyprus: Anyone else? Cary: Yeah, the thing that’s been nagging at me lately is wanting to move out and live on my own in New York City. I feel like I’ve started, but I have no idea if I’ll do that in a decent time frame. MEntity: What do you mean by decent time frame? Cary: Before I’m old and gray. I guess within the next two years. MEntity: We think that you are in the first year after coming out of a Void. You are already out of The Void and into the tangible Sequences that are in effect to fulfill the Life Plan. And we might describe yours as EMPOWERED INDEPENDENCE. You are only in the first year of that five-year Life Plan cycle. What we would suggest next is to give yourself time, allow yourself that time, because that is the plan. What you are distracted by and find to be the impulse is accurate to what Essence is looking to do with you, as you. The most symbolic tangible evidence of EMPOWERED INDEPENDENCE is your living on your terms in the way that you describe. You are just at the beginning of this and it looks as if it’s in the 80% probability range for manifesting if you continue to participate in its trajectory. Cyprus: That’s pretty high for a Michael probability. Cary: Awesome. MEntity: One of the reasons why there is high probability is not because it is destined, of course, but because you have decided that this is what you want and that it is good for you. And however many obstacles there may be, taking care of yourself is something that you are fairly good at doing, so this will help forge that path toward what you have decided is best for you. And you can do it. Cyprus: Anyone else? Kerrin: For my Life Plan, as things keep moving forward, I keep finding myself falling back into old patterns from my past career where I am always in a support position and I’m making everyone else really successful. And I really want to create my own business and start creating and bring my own vision forward in design. And creating based on my values of sustainability. I have all the ideas, but I keep getting caught up in working for other people, so I can pay my bills. But I’m really, really trying to, you know, move forward. Yeah. I want my crown, damn it. MEntity: Your Void was approximately a year ago and you are also in the end of the first year of this Life Plan that we can see. MEntity: What seems to have been important was a review based on what you are describing. Two things were important: the review, which is to return to some very humble positions in your life that prompted—we’re looking for the correct words—prompted an ownership of your confidence, and ownership of your importance, and ownership of your talents, and an ownership of everything that is important to you. MEntity: Kings tend to do this, especially older Kings who have had to comply to positions in life that do not cater to the positions that used to be available to us as Kings. And when the King decides that it is time to step up or to move oneself into a position of greater control over the life, they tend to do a great step backward as a way to say, “Oh, Yes. That greater control is what I wanted.” And then they go for it. MEntity: You are entering the second year of your Life Plan. And from what we can see it is simply a matter of continuing what you are doing and aiming for clarity in what it is that you want to create as your platform of personal success. You are certainly not condemned to only being of support to others’ success. But, as we said earlier, the other part of what you were doing was simply taking care of yourself along the way. Cyprus: That is exciting. Cyprus: Shanequa? Shanequa: I’ve been focusing on,.... [edited for privacy] Shanequa: You summed up everything. Cyprus: They got that skill. Shanequa: Read him real quick! Cyprus: Umm, . . . MEntity: We are not done. Cyprus: Oh, sorry! [edited for privacy] MEntity: Did the Sage want to speak? [Laughter] Cyprus: That’s almost a ridiculous question! Why yes, I was going to do mine. Contrary, the exact opposite of Bobby’s, mine’s about me. I feel like the one thing that has really been reoccurring for me recently is kinda like twofold: one is being me and the other thing is caring for the body that is me in a way that I’ve never really looked at or appreciated or was concerned about or any of those things at all. And I think the reason I asked about the Monads is because when I turned 50 things felt like they changed for me in a way and I thought it had something to do with Monad shifting and I thought it might tie into the Life Plan. But it’s very important for the integrity of me to be me, but also to care for me in a way I haven’t before. MEntity: And your question? Cyprus: It’s not a question. I’m asking about my Life Plan. [Laughter] Cyprus: Now I think Troy’s just being a smart ass! He’s in there going, really? [Laughter] MEntity: We had to let Troy relax back down. MEntity: This is because you have started your 5th Internal Monad and this is a process of recreating yourself. The 5th Internal Monad is a process of freeing yourself from your own ideas about who you should have been, who you could have been. It is about defining yourself beyond even your own terms. MEntity: And so it is more about that larger cycle happening for you than it is about a Life Plan, though a Life Plan will naturally tie into that. But to understand what is happening to you, we would suggest exploring the mapping of the 5th Internal Monad and what it is for and how to navigate it. That we do not have to elaborate on here for you to find some insight into what it is and why you are shifting in your perspective of yourself. MEntity: In terms of the Life Plan, you are also at the beginning stages of the five-year part of the plan. The term that comes to us for describing your Life Plan is LONGEVITY. This is a Life Plan that is focusing on staying here longer, being here in existence, in the best state that you can possibly participate in making. Whereas in the past, this has always been left up to what you would think of as random factors or that it is something that you simply do not think about. But now you do. And it matters to you to stay here with the ones you love and to gain more from this life than simply riding it out. Cyprus: I always reference the fact that Kerrin used to talk about her body as something that moved her head around. I guess I kinda always felt that way in a certain way, that it was just like there, but I do recently have been thinking so much more strongly about it. MEntity: You do exist beyond your head. Bobby: Questioning your mortality. Cyprus: Yeah, I think that’s part of it, too. I get the concept of wanting to be here. I used to not think about that as a thing. And now I think, I’m achy. And I have this and I have that. I love getting older, but I just don’t love that my body feels it in a different way. And I can’t do things that I did before. Like carrying something. I used to be able to lift heavy boxes. Now I’m like all weak and shit. It’s so weird. So, it has been a real focus for me. MEntity: Keep in mind that that is a state that is natural for the body to move through and toward. It is not something to overcome. It is something to adapt to and to care within the parameters that are shifting. Cyprus: I 100% agree. I really totally get that part. BFBobby: She’s not going to exert more effort than she absolutely has to. Cyprus: But those are the moments when you realize that things change that you didn’t know changed until you tried to do them and now you can’t do them anymore. BFBobby: The old you would be like, Oh yay, someone else will have to do it for me. [Laughter] Cyprus: Anyway. Thank you. BFBobby: Can I ask two questions as needing some clarification. The first one was: Michael said that the Life Plan is co-created with Essence. Does that mean for each fragment, like I’m Bobby, my Life Plan is this: Helping Others. But then if I come back or a previous life that I had, it would have been a totally different Life Plan? That’s question one. And the second question is: These seven-year cycles. Does the Life Plan, maybe if you accomplish what you wanted to accomplish, if Kerrin creates her own design company or whatever, does the Life Plan in the next cycle possibly shift to a new Life Plan? MEntity: The phrase “Life Plan” is a bit of a misnomer in the sense that it is only a temporary plan. It is not an arcing plan that is defining the lifetime. BFBobby: It doesn’t define the whole lifetime? MEntity: No. That is why they move in cycles. Because you change plans. You change interests. You change fascinations. You change motivations. Inspiration can come. Environments can change. The culture can change. Society can change. And the Life Plans will adapt to these. So, there will be other lifetimes as “not-Bobby” who also had for a period of time the Life Plan of HELPING OTHERS and that Personality would have pursued it in a way that was important to her or him. MEntity: Your Life Plan of HELPING OTHERS may also shift if you were to push too far into the realm of helping others to the extent of harming yourself. Then your Life Plan may shift into how do I help myself or, more likely, how do I find a balance between helping others and helping myself. And so, the Life Plans are constantly being recalibrated and assessed. MEntity: If there were only one arcing Life Plan it would be very difficult for Essence to ever get anything done because a Personality is fairly rogue in its choice-making process as it learns and as it remembers. And Essence can never count on a Personality to do as it was expected to do. We remember. MEntity: So, the Life Task is the broadest context that a life may have as a direction. And it can be rejected, or it can be fulfilled. But the Life Plan is more short term and tends to appeal to the Personality in a very immediate way. BFBobby: Got it. So, based on that would it make sense that your Life Plan often fits into your Life Task? MEntity: Everything fits into the Life Task. Yes. Shanequa: What do you choose before you incarnate here? Your Life Plans? Or your Task? Or? MEntity: The Life Task is chosen by Essence before you incarnate. It tends not to activate as a sense of direction until around the 4th Internal Monad, or at the earliest after the 3rd Internal Monad. However, older souls can often be aware of the Life Task even earlier. MEntity: But the Life Plans are something that is developed on the fly, so to speak, as the life progresses. Because the Life Plan must appeal to the Personality. It must be something that is generated by the Personality and then Essence gets behind that. MEntity: To make things clearer, we could say that the Life Task is what the Essence would like to experience, and Personality must get behind that if it is to be fulfilled. The Life Plan is what the Personality would like to experience, and Essence would get behind that. Shanequa: Are there Agreements that you make beforehand about your Life Task? How does that play in? These Agreements you make? MEntity: The Life Tasks are broad enough to accommodate all of the choices that may come from Personality. There are certain pivotal points where there may be a pool of Agreements that would help bring to light the Life Task for an individual. But the Life Task is so broad intentionally, so that wherever the Personality is going it has the capacity to fulfill. MEntity: That is why a Life Task is described in such broad terms, such as, TO OVERCOME INTERNAL OBSTACLES, for instance. This can be done in many different ways, and it will likely be fulfilled by some version of the Personality. But it is rather broad. And Agreements can be tied into that in advance, but more often than not they are also generated as the life progresses. MEntity: There is nothing predestined about a lifetime. Shanequa: I thought there were some things. Cyprus: Choice. That’s the whole point. Learning how to choose and choosing how to learn. Shanequa: But like you choose your parents and stuff, so that’s like, destined. Cyprus: Yeah, but you don’t choose the relationship that you have with them. Those things all evolve through time and choice. BFBobby: No outcome is predetermined. You may set up the chess board, but how you play the game has not been predetermined. Cyprus: And you never know how other people will move their pieces. MEntity: You can choose the vehicle, but you determine what time you arrive. Group Response: Ooooooo. [Laughter] BFBobby: Bringing it back! Cyprus: I like a full circle! I like a full circle. [NOTE FROM TROY: This must have been a playful reference to the very late arrival of an attendee] Cyprus: Kerrin, do you have a question? Kerrin: A general question? You know I have to bring in politics. I can’t control myself. My question is now that we have Donald Trump and we have a Republican administration, and things are getting ugly, what are the probabilities that it’ll implode? That Donald Trump will get impeached? That people in America will start to wake up to what’s going on, and how much longer? MEntity: Of course, we cannot predict, especially with so many involved in the process of what is to come. But we can see the patterns, and there are more patterns moving in the direction of an awakening, or at least a revelation, that is a point of no return. And what we mean by this is that the country, or the consciousness that is participating in the country, are at a point where they will either be set back for another 100 to 1,000 years-- Multiple Responses: Oh my god! Wow! Ugh!! MEntity: And your reaction [Laughter] is fairly accurate to the percentage that is interested in that, which is very small, relatively speaking, but very strong. Or you will accelerate in a way that finds those who are resisting progress to be included. And that is the most difficult, key element at this moment for how to move forward in a way that is a point of no return toward more Mature soul and peaceful paths: how to include those who are terrified of that. MEntity: One of the only ways to do so is to drag them, so to speak, into that paradigm because they will adapt. But that choice to “drag” them into it would have to be made in a way that stopped being concerned about the reactions or the fears or the courtesy, the retaliations, and so forth. MEntity: There are only two years left, that we can see, based on the patterns in place now that can sustain this before a major setback or a major leap occurs. We think this is tied to the greater shift in patterns coming together for 2020, where the Infinite Soul manifestations are becoming more and more likely to occur for an intervention. And so, in the next two years, if this is not tied up in some way that is beneficial to all involved even to those who resisted, then there will likely be intervention. MEntity: So, in short, we can say that in the next two years it is likely that something will change. It will not be something that must be endured much longer. Cyprus: I have a question on her question. People have been talking about the Infinite Soul returning for quite a time now. Is it just, like, hanging out, waiting for us to hit rock bottom or something? ‘Cause that’s what it sort of sounds like. MEntity: Yes, the Infinite Soul manifestations only occur if there is a necessity for vital intervention to help return the species to a viable state. Kerrin: Things aren’t shitty enough yet. Which means we still have a ways to go. MEntity: There is always an Infinite Soul manifestation waiting in the wings, so to speak. The Infinite Soul is not a single Entity. It is not a being. It is a collection of Cadres and Entities and so forth manifesting as a representative of Tao. MEntity: But we are not clear on its algorithms for accessing how “bad” it must get for the intervention. We suspect that from that perspective they have access to greater patterns than we do. And when it is seen that even if it reaches a very painful and difficult part in human history, if the patterns are indicating a recovery from that in a way that allows humanity to mature on its own, the manifestation will be avoided. BFBobby: To use words that you, Michael, said earlier would it be fair to say that the Infinite Soul probably wouldn’t come if we reach a Turning Point but rather only come if we reach a Breaking Point. MEntity: Correct. Yes, the Infinite Soul had manifestations slated for around 1986 and 1999, 2001, 2012 and so far humans have continued to find a way through on their own. And that is what the goal is as a collective consciousness. MEntity: It may be sometimes difficult to see it in tangible terms or in evidential terms at the moment, but the manifestation of the Infinite Soul means that at least from that perspective the patterns that were evolving would have led to some form of terrible demise for the species if it had continued. Cyprus: So when the Infinite Soul comes it represents love or truth or energy. So, is it already predetermined what the next one would be? MEntity: All three for the next manifestation. Cyprus: Oh, it’s triple threat. BFBobby: We’re fucking our world up big time. MEntity: It has manifested in its various facets before, but this manifestation to accommodate the population is aiming for five separate manifestations from demographics that would listen to those individuals. Cyprus: Will they have a connection to each other here? If there are five and they are obviously all connected because of the Infinite Soul connection, are the five bodies somehow connected or will connect in some way? Or would it be just five random things that happened for each one in a different area? Cary: Will their Personalities know each other? Is that what you mean? Cyprus: Well, not necessarily know each other but somehow connected? MEntity: They will all be seventh-level Old. That is one factor that will tie them together, but they will have various positions within various Entities and Cadres. They will likely not know each other. MEntity: Keep in mind that all Infinite Soul manifestations are the Personality of the individual for most of its life and most of its teaching until the actual manifestation happens, which tends to only be 30 to 90 days of the life. Until that manifestation, they are being guided and supported by the Infinite Soul manifestation process, but it is still the individual’s teaching and the individual’s choice fueled, so to speak, by the direct connection to Infinite Soul. Cyprus: So are some of these ones that were waiting around in like 2012 and ’99? MEntity: Some of them have been opted out. One example is the fragment known as Elián González, who was slated to be the next Infinite Soul at that time and has opted out. That was a prime position to be in for great influence that shifted and is no longer viable. MEntity: So those who will be manifesting the Infinite Soul are on the planet at the time and in their lives. They will probably still have their teachings, of course, in some way. But until 2020 it will not be known as to whether there will be a locking on to, an anchoring, to those individuals so the actual manifestation occurs. BFBobby: So, they are regular, everyday Personalities up until the Infinite Soul manifestation for generally 30 to 90 days? MEntity: They tend to be fairly beloved and fairly influential already in some way, and often fairly rebellious in the environments that they are in, in some way bringing to light a change that must be made. BFBobby: But they aren’t for their entire life the Infinite Soul? MEntity: Correct. For instance, one of the candidates is a part of the leadership that is protesting the pipeline in North Dakota. Kerrin: There is someone who is a tribal elder, I thought. MEntity: That is correct. Shanequa: Are they going to come out with the same philosophy in different areas? Because if they come out with different philosophies in different areas it’s going to pit us against each other. MEntity: No, what you are thinking of is religion. Religion comes long after the Infinite Soul teachings. There is the teaching of the individuals and then the manifestation of the Infinite Soul where there is a teaching, but it can NOT be in conflict with the teaching of another Infinite Soul. MEntity: In fact, all religions that are seeded by the Infinite Souls behind them have no conflict at their core. It is only what builds upon them afterward in complexities and complications that cause the conflicts. But at the core LOVE ONE ANOTHER is not in conflict with KNOW THYSELF. Do you understand? And at the core of every Infinite Soul’s teaching is a very simple truth or a very simple teaching. MEntity: Religion will change, as the Mature Soul population grows religion will change and its impact on the planet because what you are seeing is the Baby Soul version of spirituality or a teaching in the hands of Young Souls. The Young Souls learned very quickly that to maintain order and control over the Baby Souls they had to hijack their religions and this has worked for thousands of years and it is falling apart as the Mature Soul paradigm comes into existence. Cyprus: OK, so we went around but we probably don’t have a huge amount of time left. So, do we want to do our-- MEntity: This is not water. [Laughter] Cyprus: No, that is gin. Do you need water? Would you like the coconut water? MEntity: We are fine. [NOTE FROM TROY: I had been drinking a gin and tonic before the session and I usually need a drink of water during every vocal session at some point, so I always have water set up for Michael/Me to drink.] Cyprus: That was like the best part of the whole session so far! [Laughter] Cyprus: So, do we want to do our quick little personal questions? Cary: My question is a general question. The term Masculine/Feminine, M/F ratio, is very confusing to people. Is there some other term that would more accurately describe the type of energy that term is describing? MEntity: Yes, Focused and Creative. Cary: So, is that the term we should be using instead of M/F ratio? MEntity: No. It is important to differentiate and to move away from those terms at the moment because of the outdated and societal shifts that are occurring around gender at the moment. So, it is OK and important to move away from that and move toward the more neutral terms of Focused and Creative. But it is not something that needs to be discarded entirely because once the acceptance of fluidity in gender is accepted then the terms Male and Female will no longer represent polarities. They will represent a spectrum. MEntity: Because not a single person is 100% Female or Creative or 100% Focused or Male. So, our system was already built to include that fluidity. But we like to evolve our terms to match the times in the same way that we moved away from Slave as a term, which would not fly in this period of time where this term is used in a way to represent a period of history and a people in a very different way than what we had used the term originally. So, our teaching does evolve to adapt to the language of the time or it would die. So Focused and Creative is fair to use, even if you return to Male and Female later. Cyprus: Kerrin? Kerrin: How does Michael see my Essence in terms of color and imagery? MEntity: When we interact with your Essence and it shows itself in a form, it is often in geometric shapes that combine in ways that are unexpected and is often clear. We would not say that there was a color (although there is a color) but we cannot describe it. It is mostly clear or transparent, and the parts, the components, that make up your expression of Essence move about almost in mechanical ways, like clockwork that represents whatever it is that you are working on at the time. And they continue to move at all times in the same way that machinery works. And that is how we see you. BFBobby: If you are a geometric pattern that’s clear that makes you like a prism so you bounce back all colors. MEntity: That is one of the reasons why we could not describe a color because of the effects that these various geometric shapes have on the light around it. Cary: Is the movement like gears? MEntity: Clunky gears. [Laughter] They move with great fluidity but in unexpected ways, such as a conical shape moving in spiral patterns around a rectangle. Cyprus: My question is about our little group of four, Troy and Bobby and me and Johnny. We are getting group tattoos in two weeks from today, and Bobby and I both feel very driven about this process, and I love the fact that it’s art that’s created by two of the people in our group. And I wanted to know if the four of us have done this before. Because I feel like we did. MEntity: More than the four of you, of course, and all of you in this gathering have been tattooed in other lives. Cyprus: No, I know, but I meant like as a group of four. MEntity: We are looking. Yes, you have. Mostly as a part of a tribe. And not specific to the four of you, but as a part of a larger tribe. Which is partly what this represents in general. You are not choosing symbols that represent an exclusive grouping but your position within a greater grouping. And that is what is important about it for you at this time. MEntity: This will be the last question. Shanequa: Will I find that BFF that I feel that I have a longing for, that sister-friend. Or that sister-friend in a guy body? MEntity: Yes, because you are looking. But your space has to be more inviting. There are Agreements that all of you make with individuals that fall by the wayside if the environment is restricted in allowing the level of intimacy that would be desired. MEntity: So, you must shift in one of two ways. One would be to leave the environment that is restricting you, as we were discussing with you earlier. Or to simply own more of that environment on your terms before it can make room for that individual. MEntity: But yes, you have an Agreement with, we think it’s a Sage, female. We are looking for some validating factor so you will know when you cross paths. The window for the Agreement looks to be February to March of next year. The only validating factor that we can find at this moment is that she loves floral prints. She seems to be known for wearing floral prints. And we can check in with you again in further exchanges with you. It is a Sage female, in February to March. Cyprus: She’s clearly not someone sitting here now. [Laughter] Various Responses: Thank you very much. Yes, thank you! MEntity: We will conclude here. Good-bye.
  2. July 8, 2007 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks Online – Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will immediately open the floor to questions as we have no opening request from Troy. [H2OSprtlvr] I am drawn to an individual that I have done business with. While in his shop, he opened up and told me about a whole host of problems he is dealing with. He seems to be nothing but trouble. Why do I feel attached to helping him to see another way of things? I don't understand why I am drawn to someone with problems I know I can't help with. [Michael Entity] It is part of some of your self-karma: the dance between speculation and truth, and the dance between saving a life and simply giving what you can. It would do you well to allow the speculation that you may not be able to help save this person, but it would also do you well to keep in perspective what you CAN give as help, without condition, as the ultimate impact will be up to the receiver, not the giver. In other words, give the support and caring that you can, but allow for the reality that you cannot save his life for him. [vals] Can you explain male and female energy how is it used within the body which energy controls what, how does one enhance the experience for either male or female energy. In my case my male energy seems to have been neglected and recently stood up and delivered me a tear to my coronary artery [Michael Entity] Male and Female Energy are simplistic words to describe the differences between Focused, Linear, Productive, Aggressive energy and Unfocused, Non-linear, Creative, Nurturing energy. The only things that are “controlled” by the Male and Female Energies are the biological cycles that keep a fluctuation of dynamic exchange between these two energies. Female Energy runs in cycles of approximately two sets of 14 days (28 day cycles), with 14 days leading up to a pivotal point (the Inspirational/Emotional Cycle) and 14 days leading away from that point (the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle). In the female body, this is easy to track as it relates to menstruation, even if not exactly 28 days in circulation. Male bodies share this same process, but without the obvious physical symptoms. Male Energy runs in 21 Day Cycles, divided into 3 sets of 7 days, with one Cycle being the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle, one being the Action/Moving Cycle, and one being the Assimilative/Neutral Cycle. Male bodies mostly show the symptoms of these cycles in the obvious Action Cycle where testosterone is produced more and sexual activity rises. Females experience these cycles as well. The differences between the 21 days and the 28 days allows for some constantly unique variations of proportion within the body at any given time for each individual. Beyond this, the energy is not controlling anything, but is an accessible energy that is controlled by the fragment. However, when the energy is denied or blocked, physical symptoms can show up as a means to get the energy flowing again. This energy is impossible to block for long, since it is a life force. When blocked, it will show up within one of the contexts relevant to the energy (emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual), or the body will die. We would like to add here that our channel has distorted part of the information being shared here and we will work to correct this if we can during this chat, or during the transcript editing. [Note from Troy: I cannot for the life of me figure what could be wrong or distorted, so if anyone has any cross-references to some other channeled material about this subject, let me know!] Ways to increase the acceptance of Male Energy are to get dirty, to make plans, to think in terms of future outcomes. Ways to increase the acceptance of Female Energy are to clean, trust the moment, and allow room for all possibilities. There are many other ways to increase Male or Female energy acceptance, such as emotional vulnerability and communication (female) and sexual gratification and flirtation (male), etc. Though we can have an entire session on these energies, we will move on to the next question. [carrotwax] Thank you for communicating that distortion. It really shows you take the integrity of the material seriously. [Michael Entity] Of course we do. When a channel is internally distracted or in a “funk,” it can alter our ability to get the information to/through them clearly. We have always had an open agreement with Troy to flag when this distortion is occurring. [stryper] Michael has stated several times recently that the current government of the US will change to reflect the shift to a mature soul world. What type of government would that be? Additionally, what are the possibilities that may present themselves before we get there? [Michael Entity] A Mature Soul government will not look entirely different, but it will be a more accessible, interactive, and constantly evolving government that is not concerned with a majority, but with groups within groups. It is understood that what is of “benefit for all” does not actually, ever include “all.” Therefore, it is a priority to identify and benefit as best can be, the varying groups that make up the people of a government. The possibilities of this presenting itself are highest when the fragment known as “Bush” is out of office and time has passed to allow for cleaning up after his impact, which appears to us to be approximately 20 years beyond that. Keep in mind that this is NOT a prediction, but an observation of a momentum we see within the current patterns. [Lightspring] Many of us have been struggling lately with the concept of community. Within the loose community of Michael students, it seems that there are varying degrees of longing for community, as well as differing definitions of it, which is all to be expected among a large group of people. Isn't the whole point about manifesting love as a group, while at the same time exploring group dynamics and learning from one another, and how can we best do that, given the current limitations of group makeup and communication options that are available? [Michael Entity] We have always referred to our groups as “groups” as there has never been a lot of cohesion throughout those who are interested in our Teaching. For one thing, True Community can only be accomplished for those within physical proximity of each other. This is why this task is so daunting and met with such obstacles by those seeking it online. Trying to create a community in such an ephemeral and intangible space such as the Internet can never be done on a level that is True. Community can be mimicked online, but not established. In the same way that we have just described the evolution of a Mature Soul government, so too is the evolution of a group sharing an interest in a teaching (or any other focus). The consideration must be made for what each group needs and wants before there is cohesion, if cohesion is possible at all. For those who put effort into physical interaction, True Community is most likely and this CAN be carried back online to some degree, but limited to those who have had the physical contact. This is why there was/is such inspiration and motivation within the groups that form in physical space, but then somehow find this does not translate online. Accessing the Internet is easy, as opposed to the efforts of making physical contact. This means it is easy for those who have no interest in supporting “community” to be a part of that dynamic. Often these fragments are obvious and often they are not, but they will remain an insidious force that will generally keep cohesion from ever being feasible. In Physical space, these same people are more obvious and their behaviors can find evolution by being around those who model more mature behavior, but online, they can be locked into patterns that cannot be interrupted at a distance. All of this being said, creating True Community is only as easy as the effort of all involved. Even if one person is part of the process who does not share the same effort or ideal, everyone is affected. It can be a tedious and long process to build and sustain True Community. In terms of the “whole point being to manifest love as a group,” this can only be done to the extent that each individual has done this within his or her own life, and most are not interested in manifesting True Love, or Agape. To do so is a terrifying prospect as it involves detachment from many things that are used as personal identity and purpose within the life. For most, Love is experienced in pockets of interactions, or time, but not as a state that can be sustained for a group or community. To help in your pursuit to create True Community, we would suggest the following: ONE: to realize that it is something that must be done with at least a physical counterpart that is nurtured regularly to some extent. TWO: to identify online cohesion as GROUPS, not Communities (at least in concept) and allow room for divisions that are in place for various reasons that not all will understand or want. THREE: to use INVITATION, not EFFORT, to create cohesion online. If there is frustration or effort being applied to create cohesion online, then the direction is more about the one making the effort, not the benefit of the group. FOUR: understand that the whole point is not about manifesting love as a group, but manifesting love as individuals, creating a sum that is greater than the parts. This takes time and energy and personal development that can be lost in the efforts to proselytize cohesion on a group. FIVE: Cohesion in a group is something that forms, but is not created. It is a natural byproduct of invitations and those who are participating, and the shapes and overlapping are as ephemeral and amorphous as the space in which it has been forming. There will never be anything static about Groups. SIX: Whether speaking of True Community or Groups, there will always be a process of evolution that includes the 7 Stages of Initiation, Discrimination, Stability, Corruption, Healing, Integration, and Neutrality (a stage that can be inserted at any point within the process to bring about a break to the process). Again, this is a subject to which we could devote a long discussion, but we believe this gives some food for thought for now. [Kathryn41] In 1811/12 the New Madrid area (in sections of Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee) experienced 4 earthquakes of magnitude 7, 7.7, 7.4 and 7.9. The area is still seismically active and an 7 plus quake is considered a 90% probability within 50 years or so. Would Michael offer their view on what the current stability/risk of this area is for the near future? And, how ‘near’ is that future:-). Thank you. I am not looking for predictions but observations from your greater vantage point [Michael Entity] The probability is accurate, but more likely within 20 years at this point. Correction: within 10 years. [cimmarron] Hello Michael. I have been working with a friend who is receiving channeling from Simon the peter (he has told us that the Michaels and he have worked together for a long time). Simon has stated that there is a great shift in energy happening on the planet, magnetic poles shifting, awareness shifting, Mother Earth cleansing herself, etc. Can you comment on this? [Michael Entity] There is always shifting happening on your planet in some form and this has been stated by many in positions of awareness, science, fear, philosophy, power, or spirituality over eons of time. There is nothing specifically unique at this point, though many who observe larger patterns can anticipate the potential for something more obvious. Only when the Infinite Soul is manifest is there truly a shift to the degree to which many claim the earth is processing currently. Otherwise, the “shifts” are simply natural stages in the evolution of the planet's consciousness, or climatic changes that are simply not understood and attributed superstitious values. However, all of this being said, there is some who are observing potential impact in some parallels from the Sagittarius galaxy intercepting the Milky Way system in a unique way within 5 years, identifying 2012 as a major shift on the planet. We do not mean to imply that NO shifts happen on the planet unless the Infinite Soul is present, but more that the ominous, impending predictions are usually those shifts that do not happen without the Logos being brought to bear. Otherwise, shifts happen all the time, and some are more obvious than others. The last greatest shift on your planet was in August of 1987 during what was called the Harmonic Convergence when the technical number of Mature Souls finally outnumbered the number of Young Souls. As you can see, this shift is still finding footing, so these do not happen dramatically, even if weather and climate changes do. [cimmarron] I did not mean to imply the shifts were ominous…. simply in motion. [Michael Entity] We realize you did not imply this, but often the questions about global shifts do include that ominous quality, so we chose to address that. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  3. OMW - Oct 20, 2012 - How To Use Your Energy Troy Tolley, Channel [MEntity] First, we will define "Energy" here as the force that is vitality, which allows for systems to work. [MEntity] One may find that we use the term "beauty" and "energy" and even "oneness" interchangeably when discussing the three building blocks of any universe: Truth, Love, Energy. [MEntity] That is because each of these terms refer to that force of vitality that enables the functioning of a system. [MEntity] Energy is a Universal Truth. It exists in a multitude of forms, both seen and unseen, tangible and intangible, quantifiable, and amorphous. [MEntity] Where there is a system at work, there is Energy. [MEntity] Where there is Energy, there is a system at work. [MEntity] We will define "system" here as those parts that work to generate the whole. [MEntity] Tao, or "God," cannot exist without Energy, then, because it will always be made up of parts that generate that wholeness that is itself. [MEntity] Oneness is used interchangeably, because there is nothing that is truly whole without comprehending its resonant parts. [MEntity] Comprehending the interdependence of the parts is vital for that wholeness to be sustained. Otherwise, the illusion of fragmentation is consuming. [MEntity] A good example is the functioning of any Physical body. It is a system. It is made of parts. Parts that are interdependent, resonant, interacting, generating the whole of the body as one. [MEntity] The health of a body is much more easily sustained when this is understood, truly comprehended. [MEntity] What I EAT affects me. [MEntity] What I DRINK affects me. [MEntity] What I INHALE affects me. [MEntity] Eventually, the temporary high, temporary stimulation, temporary relief comes to be replaced with holistic awareness that comprehends the wholeness that is the body. [MEntity] When we mentioned "temporary," we mean those things that are clearly not beneficial for the body, but are ingested for the stimulation, high, or relief. [MEntity] This is not a concern when the body is in a fair state of health, but must be considered if the body is falling ill. [MEntity] This is another arena for the dance of choice, of course. [MEntity] But it is a fair comparison to any other system that is fueled by Energy. [MEntity] This would extend into the Emotional, Intellectual, and "spiritual" bodies, as well. [MEntity] On Macro and Micro levels, this is an absolute truth. DISCUSSION [MEntity] Before we move on into more detail, we will pause for questions about what we have shared, so far, if there are any. [Bobby] How does the Energy side of an Entity play into this? [MEntity] While there is no "side" to an entity, and while each Essence has all three "sides" as part of their dynamic, there are those within the entity who emphasize one over others for the sake of a dynamic structure. [MEntity] For those who emphasize Energy, their Essences (not necessarily their Personalities) help sustain the vitality for the functioning of the Entity. [MEntity] They would tend to keep the Entity "alive," and would tend to have lifetimes, or themes across lifetimes, geared toward the practice of waking up, and then the waking up of other Entity members. [MEntity] That path to waking up, and staying awake, may tend to be wrought with chaos, as Energy is both chaos and order, with chaos being the default entrance toward the path of waking up. [MEntity] For those on the "energy side," there may tend to be, in the Old Soul Age, a fine line between chaos and beauty (perceived order). [MEntity] However, this could be said of any fragment, and every fragment will have this as part of their own path toward wakefulness, consciousness, but for those with an emphasis on Truth or Love, then they would have their chaos move into beauty through their relative emphasis. [MEntity] For instance, Beauty and wakefulness comes to the lives of those with an emphasis on Truth by working through the spectrum of Truth. [MEntity] When that person rejects the truth, or is in the earlier stages of exploring truth, chaos may be a part of the dynamic. [MEntity] And the same for those who emphasize Love. [MEntity] Does this help explore your question. [MEntity] Are there any others? [GeraldineB] I'm confused about something [Bobby] Yes, thank you! [GeraldineB] Parsing what you said, it "sounds" as though Essence and/or Entities (through Entity Members aka Essences) need to be wakened [GeraldineB] I thought Personality was what needed awakening [MEntity] Correct. But the evolution of Essence, and thereby, the Entity, evolves based upon the rising capacity for consciousness while incarnated. [GeraldineB] ok -- thank you -- so they're not "extremely advanced" to us, their Fragments [Maureen] Sleeping Beauty [MEntity] In addition to this, no Essence is a completed state of awareness. It evolves into greater states of "wakefulness" that are relative to its own journey. [MEntity] If that were not the case, it would make Grand Cycles, and incarnation, a kind of soul masturbation. That would not be a "bad thing," but a fairly useless point for such vastness as Tao and the universe. [GeraldineB] I think that has been one of the issues I've been hung up on [GeraldineB] thank you [MEntity] An aside: [MEntity] The passage through the Soul Ages is always relative to the level of consciousness brought to the Grand Cycle, and then continues to build upon that through the experiences gained through the Planes of that Grand Cycle, relative to the species of incarnation. [MEntity] Those who have had 3 Grand Cycles will bring a different degree of capacity to their Grand Cycle as compared to that of one who might have 17. [Maureen] Thanks Michael -- I have wondered about that [MEntity] Returning to the subject now. [MEntity] But that was not a digression, as it is insight into how the Energy of one's Grand Cycle works [MEntity] This is the same for the individual lifetime, as well. [MEntity] Over the Soul Ages, both the Essence, and the awakened Personalities, will tend toward refining the use of Energy in evermore productive and relevant ways. [MEntity] This is seen in even more microcosmic scales when looking at how any individual life tends to use Energy over the course of growing up. [Maureen] Would you give us an example Michael? [MEntity] In both the Infant Soul Age, and as a literal infant, there is chaos as the force of Energy. That chaos is vital, is vitality. It is necessary for reasons we will share in a moment. [MEntity] As the body grows, so does the organization and movement of that Energy. [MEntity] As the soul ages, the same can be said. [MEntity] The reason for this movement through chaos, first, is because the Mass of an object IS its Energy. The Mass of any Essence is vast. It is transforming a minute portion of its Mass into the Energy that becomes the force and fuel of Personality. [MEntity] This could be said of any birthing into the Physical Plane. It is rarely without chaos in some form. [MEntity] That form is held in place only through the vitality of Essence, its Energy. [MEntity] In other systems, or species, those forms are held in place by their relative fields of consciousness that have formed them. [MEntity] Every form of any sort that can be quantified, even if in ways that would seem extremely abstract and intangible to you, such as the concept of Essence, is held in form by the "higher" field of consciousness behind it. [MEntity] So the form of Essence is even "held together" by the fact of its "birthing" from Tao. [MEntity] However, regardless of the form and the force that generates and sustains that form, there is potential Energy that is generated from the chaos. [MEntity] And this is harvested, if you will, in the form of growth, experience, comprehension, and waking up, which then becomes the force that sustains the whole. [MEntity] Imagine, then, every lifetime being much like a coiled spring. [MEntity] Every Grand Cycle, an even greater launch of force. [MEntity] The more Grand Cycles, the greater the Soul Age, the more quickly that spring is sprung, if you will. [MEntity] For most Old Souls, this is known. Their "spring was sprung" quite early, or in other words, the self-consciousness and self-awareness came quite early in the life. [MEntity] The earlier this comes, the more is harvested from the life in terms of experiences, growth, comprehension, and wakefulness. [MEntity] Because Energy cannot be destroyed, "you" will never die. [MEntity] The you that you know will never be left behind, absorbed, discarded. [MEntity] In much the same way that not a single one of your comprehended experiences will be lost to you, neither are you ever lost to Essence or Entity. [MEntity] Not a single experience is lost to Essence, regardless of your comprehension, but when the Personalty comprehends within the lifetime, it is never lost to that Personality. [MEntity] Because no lifetime is birthed without profound comprehension, then no lifetime is ever lost to Essence. [MEntity] In the same way that Essence evolves because of the potential unleashed in the lifetime that results in experiences, so do you evolve in Personality (toward the Positive Poles) as you use the power of Choice. [MEntity] Choice, then, is your individual key to all of the potential vitality that you carry as a Personality. [MEntity] This is not counting the potential already moving through the life because of Essence, but that which is unleashed by you, and harvested by you. [MEntity] As you are your own system of Overleaves, of working parts that generate a whole. [MEntity] This is not a matter of "the right choice," or "better choices," or a "bad choice," but the process of owning all of them, whether in retrospect, now, or as the impact of a previous choice comes to light in the future. [MEntity] Owning your choice is wakefulness. It is not guilt. It is not shame. It is not defense. It is not smugness. It is not dismissive. [MEntity] The owning of choice is simply recognizing the capacity for choice, even as you are bombarded by, benefited by, or harmed by the impact from the choices of others. [MEntity] We realize we are speaking quite metaphorically, but we think it is helpful. We will pause for questions before continuing. [Janet] Michael I am having trouble wrapping my head around all this but it is becoming clearer so I will wait to see where this goes. [MEntity] We will continue: [MEntity] Continuing with the spring as metaphor, the Internal Monads describe how far one's spring has sprung, how much potential has been released and is being built upon. The Soul Ages and Levels could be said to be simiar, but on the scale of Essence. [MEntity] The more consciously one is making Choices, the more smoothly that Energy continues to spring from the life. [MEntity] Or rather, from Essence. [MEntity] The more consciously one is making choices, the more potential is being converted into experiences, comprehension, waking, etc. that then sustain and expand both Essence and Personality. [MEntity] In terms of Essence, the use and management of Energy can tend to be relative to Frequency and Energy Ratio. The higher the Creative/Female Ratio, and Frequency, the greater the explosion of potential unleashed in a lifetime. The lower the Frequency, and the higher the Focused/Male Ratio, the more paced, measured, and steady the release of potential. [MEntity] The former often have lives and Personalities that are scattered in multiple directions, contexts, and foci to help disperse the impact of that explosion, so to speak. [MEntity] The latter tends to an ebb and flow, release and contracting, of energy that shows up in a multitude of ways over the lifetime. [MEntity] Ironically, the more consciously one is of Manifesting Essence, the more likely these reflections. [MEntity] If one has a lower Frequency, but a higher Creative Ratio, it would tend to show up as an effort to control or deflect the chaos more so than one who would have a higher Frequency. [MEntity] If one has a higher Frequency, and a higher Focused/Male Ratio, it would tend to show up as an emphasis on wringing the experience out of even the seemingly most insignificant of events and experiences. [MEntity] These are highly simplistic descriptions, and subject to variations because of other factors, but are fair enough. [MEntity] This combination between Frequency and Energy Ratio could best be understood here as the combination between the "rate of comprehension" to "path of navigation." [MEntity] Rate of comprehension is not describing intelligence, but quite specifically the preferred rate of comprehension. It is fair to say it is a spectrum from Ordinal to Cardinal, in that the lower Frequencies prefer a more Ordinal process. [MEntity] In terms of Personality, the same could be said of the distribution of Overleaves as they fall on the Axes. [MEntity] The more Ordinal the Overleaves, the more effort there is to manage the flow of Energy in the life. The more Exalted the Overleaves, the more likely this is not a concern. [MEntity] This is not to say that the Personality might choose differently from its design, especially when considering cultural and familial imprinting. [MEntity] In terms of the whole Personality, the Goal carries the greatest weight as influence in that overall management of Energy, then. The negative pole Goal would tend toward a more chaotic version of that Goal than that of the positive pole. [MEntity] In terms of relationships and relating, the Mode would carry the most weight. This might mean that if your Mode is exalted, your relationships may have much more explosive momentum than one who may have an ordinal Mode. [MEntity] In terms of social perspective and personal philosophy, the more effort to manage and control these might come from weight of the ordinal Attitudes. [MEntity] The more one is in the Positive Poles, the more flexible and fluid the flow of Energy because that flow would be allowed to be relative to the parts, the contexts, the necessities and design of those parts. [MEntity] The more one is in the Negative Poles, the more one would tend to alter the flow of Energy for the sake of constriction or force, based on defenses, fear, protection, etc. [MEntity] *alter the natural flow of Energy as described by the design of Personality.... DISCUSSION [MEntity] Before we continue, we know that this is a lot of information to combine and assess in one exchange, but we ask if there are any of you who find validity, or lack of validity, to these more immediate factors of Personality as they relate to your experience of vitality. [Diane_HB] Yes, I find that it fits. [Maureen] I can see how it fits as well Michael [AnnH] yes, it makes sense (in a broad way) [Janet] I see how it fits me. [Janet] Except that your description of how explosive my potential can be [MEntity] Ann, the broader context is always helpful for then applying the more immediate uses of the information in more meaningful ways. [Janet] But I'm working on it. [MEntity] Janet, By "high," we would mean 65 or higher in terms of Energy Ratio, and 75 or higher in Frequency. [Janet] Yes. I have 83 frequency and 59 creative. [MEntity] Keep in mind that the use of the word Potential here is not meant in terms of one's expectations of the self. [Janet] Agreed. [MEntity] It is in terms of accessing vitality. [MEntity] What you do with that is up to you. And that is where Choice comes into play. [GeraldineB] it doesn't help that one of the euphemisms for being "very energetic and healthy" is vitality in much of our advertising [GeraldineB] and I get a much more neutral feeling about it from you, MIchael [MEntity] Yes. That would be correct. Vitality is as calm or as "energetic" as one sees fit. A person in quiet meditation, or enjoying a day resting on the beach, or watching children play, or reading a book is just as easily accessing their vitality as one who is playing volley ball, exercising, or dancing. [MEntity] The appearance of vitality tends to be relative to one's Centering. APPLICATIONS AND USES [MEntity] To continue into the more immediate applications and uses of this information: [MEntity] One: it will always be helpful to remember that the potential and vitality of Essence will be managed by Essence, whether you are Manifesting Essence, or not. [MEntity] Two: it will always be helpful to remember that your immediate access to vitality, to the flow of energy that is your life force, regardless of circumstances, is your capacity for Choice, and the owning of that process. [MEntity] Three: it will always be helpful to remember that you cannot destroy Energy, and that everything you consciously choose is a process of conversion of You (mass) into Experience (energy). [MEntity] Every choice is a release of potential, a further expansion of the spring that is the force of vitality from Essence. [MEntity] Four: the health of your bodies is affected by your choices, and is a great form of feedback for the impact of many of your choices, but your health is not always the result of your choices. Scathing is a part of the package of the Physical Plane, as is "death." No choice can keep either from happening. [MEntity] Your choices from within any scathing, or in the face of any death, be it yours or someone else's, or loss of any sort, is what matters. [MEntity] Access to Vitality is not altered or hindered by anything other than choice. [MEntity] Vitality is most easily understood, in terms of accessibility and application when making choices, as Trust. [MEntity] When you trust yourself, you are Vitality. That is why the volley of a ball, or the reading of a book, can be equal in vitality, because of the trust. [MEntity] That is why the pain in harm, or the pleasure in healing, can both be filled with Vitality, when there is trust, a knowing. [MEntity] Finally, to get used to the idea and practice of allowing the flow of Energy in your life, and accessing Vitality and trust in your choices, we suggest playing with each day as if it is an incarnation. You are the Essence of the day, and the day is your Personality. [MEntity] You may not have control over the Personality/day, but the force of your choices contributing to the day, make a difference. [MEntity] That is Vitality. [MEntity] That is a force of life. [MEntity] Letting yourself move that Energy in ways that are natural to you, based on your Overleaves, can help you, then, to let that vitality show up however is best, not for however it looks best. DISCUSSION [MEntity] We will take any questions now. [MEntity] Or comments. [Janet] I like the idea of treating a day as an incarnation. I'm going to try that. [GeraldineB] Yes, I'm going to set that one up as a discussion on TLE [Janet] Michael, this material requires reflection before I can even begin to formulate a question. [MEntity] That is a quick path to the self-awareness for how you use the energy of your day. [MEntity] We understand, Janet. We will, also, state that this is, as usual, only a part of what we would have to say on the subject. [Diane_HB] I can validate a lot of it, and I think I manage my energy fairly efficiently for the most part. [Maureen] I take it that my being revved up from 55 Frequency to 75 Frequency not "natural" for me. Am I not manifesting Essence when I am not inhabiting my natural Frequency? I guess this may apply to others as well. [GeraldineB] wouldn't that still be a matter of conscious choice? [MEntity] Maureen, the use of the range of Frequency is not a hindrance to the Manifestation of Essence. You could use 35 to 75. [MEntity] Sustaining at one extreme or the other is not easy on the Personality, but it is not a factor in Manifesting Essence. [Maureen] that's good then! [MEntity] We will continue this discussion with our students. We will conclude here for today, then.
  4. OMW - Jul 21, 2012 - Personal Cycles of Life MEntity Channel: Troy Tolley Began 9:56 AM 7/21/2012; Ended 2:37 PM 7/21/2012 (Approx. 4-1/2 hours) The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan. [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin with a discussion about the nature of cycles and the potential benefit of understanding these. In every Universe, Planetary System, Planet, and its various life forms, there are cycles in effect that affect all who are a part of that dynamic. Many of these are obvious and observable, and many are on such vast or minute scales they are either missed, or nearly impossible to be concerned with from the Personality's point of view. Today we will discuss with you as many of the cycles that are relevant to the Personality as we can thoroughly discuss. The cycles of relevance tend to develop systems around them as a means to help measure them and track them, such as Astrology and Numerology, which are both valid systems for such things, when applied in legitimate ways. We will not go into the effects or measurements of such cycles that are most obvious, such as the hours of a day, seasons, lunar, etc., except in how they may apply to the cycles of relevance we will discuss. It is not that these more mundane cycles are not relevant, but that they are more useful as markers than as having actual effects. They are more reflective, than causative. There are 12 Cycles of Relevance, as we will call them for now, that may be of use to each Personality for understanding the cycles of his or her life. These are not predictive cycles, in terms of telling you what to expect in detail, but can be predictive in terms of their emphasis. Considering these as predictive only of emphasis in context is a more useful way of understanding these. For example, you know what time tomorrow will come, and that it indicates a new day, and that these days can be measured, mapped out, and counted on, but you cannot predict what each day will contain. To start, we will look at the most intimate of the Cycles: your Relationship Cycles, Comprehension Cycles, and your Life Plan Cycles. Relationship Cycles (Astrology and M/F Energies) Relationship Cycles are often run by your Male/Female, or Focused/Creative Cycles as measured by the ratio of "male to female" energy in your Essence as it is then reflected more mundanely in the Body. Bodies without Essence are either 100% Male/Focused Energy or 100% Female/Creative Energy. As Essence moves through a Body, the body shifts in dynamic to reflect the ratio inherent in the design of your Essence. Until the 2nd Internal Monad is completed, the Body tends to hold its emphasis relative to the gender of the body. After that, the ratio shifts to reflect Essence. Once the hormonal wash that often accompanies the 3rd Internal Monad is activated, then the Relationship Cycles, or M/F Energy Cycles are in effect. Regardless of your Male/Female Energy Ratio, your Relationships will tend to play out the cycles of both Energies, and because your Bodies are directly involved with relating, the body tends to reflect those cycles in fairly tangible terms. Before we elaborate, we will point out here, as an important aside, that there are 3 measurements of cycles that tend to be the most relevant and meaningful, at least in our system. These are measurements, or counts, of 7, 9, and 12. Measurements, or counts, of 7 are relative to Propulsion Cycles, or Evolutionary Cycles. It is a propelling force. Measurements, or counts, of 9 are relative to Completion Cycles, or Wholeness Cycles. Measurements, or counts, of 12 are relative to Expansion Cycles, or Empowerment Cycles. So in terms of your Male/Female Energy, both of these are in effect through your body, regardless of gender. Your Female/Creative Energy works in cycles of 28 days, divided into two cycles of 14 days, with the first cycle being an Inspirational/Emotional Cycle, and the second cycle being an Expressive/Intellectual Cycle. If one has a female body, this can often be measured in terms of the cycles of ovulation and menstruation. If one has a male body, this can be more difficult to measure, but can most often be measured in terms of "mood," as the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle can tend to be the most telling for both genders, as both will either be comfortable in their skin and social during that cycle, or "bitchy," sensitive, and reactionary during that cycle. The more moody and sensitive the Intellectual/Expressive Cycle, the more that individual is working through honesty and trust issues with the self or with others, and finding the voice for that. The stereotypical woman "PMS'ing" is an example of this, as the Intellectual/Expressive kicks into high gear for "getting out" what normally does not get a voice. Men do the same thing. Two weeks of every 28 days during these Creative/Female Cycles helps to relieve the body and the Personality of restrictions on otherwise suppressed feelings, thoughts, words, etc. [Bobby] Does the indicator you gave me, Transiting Moon opposite Natal Sun, match this 14 day period? [MEntity] Not necessarily, Bobby, but may be an indication for various individuals. Though these cycles are valid in terms of measuring by days, they can tend to fluctuate for various reasons, and some "weeks" may be shorter than others, or some cycles may go longer than normal, etc. For most, the cycles are most simply noted by when you notice you are inspired vs when you are suddenly moody "for no reason." The Male/Focused side of the cycle of one's Energy Ratio moves in cycles of 54 days, divided into 3 sub-cycles of 18 days each. Those sub-cycles are an Action Cycle, Expressive Cycle, and Inspirational Cycle. These sub-cycles can be most notably observed by their corresponding names, in that the Action cycle is quite active, sexual, aggressive, more outward in focus, and the Expressive Cycle is more thoughtful, communicative, expressive, and the Inspirational cycle is sleepier, more introspective. These two cycles, and their sub-cycles, are both moving through you at different paces, so that the mix and match of energies is constantly in flux. Combine this with the mix and match of others around you, and there is a great dance of energies happening among you at any moment. This adds a great amount of variation and variety to all forms of relating, and thus this is why we refer to this as your Relationship Cycle. Male/Female Energy Ratio describes how one navigates the life in terms of seeking balance, and this applies to relationships, as well. Depending upon where you are in your cycles, this tends to bring in a balancing set of cycles from others, or similar cycles. Taking responsibility for where you are in your own cycles can help you to relieve others of the responsibility for balancing you out. However, it can also help you to allow others to be in your life as a way to help you balance those out. Regardless of gender, if your ratio is higher on one side than the other by more than 65, then you may tend to relate more, and require balance more, in regard to that cycle. It may also be the side of the Ratio that is most easily revealed to you in observation. So if you are in a male body with higher female energy, you may actually sense your cycles of inspiration vs expression even more obviously than your male cycles of action, expression, and inspiration. Keep in mind that the expression and inspiration cycles overlap in terms for male and female energy, but their implementations are quite different. The male expression and inspiration cycles will be about structure, planning, and all other "focused" qualities, while the female expression and inspiration cycles are far more fluid, open, unstructured, and "creative" in quality. We realize this is a great deal of daunting information and we are only on the first of cycles to consider, but each will progressively require less detail, and we will continue to increase in speed of delivery. To help make the information we have shared so far useful, here is a quick synopsis of what to do: If you are female, make note of your ovulation/menstruation cycles. This can help you map your Creative Energy cycles. If you no longer ovulate or menstruate, or if you are in a male body, you can make note of when you feel the most inspired, with ideas flowing, and visions upheld, and increases in dream lucidity for when you are in the Inspirational cycle of the Creative Energy. You can also note when your mood turns in a noticeable way toward being sharper, more sensitive, brooding, or "moody," mind racing, and a sense of "facing or saying the truth" (even as it may be completely inaccurate), which may indicate the Expressive Cycle. Both of these cycles tend to be about one's mood, so keeping an eye on those distinct patterns can be helpful. Are you in the mood to construct, or in the mood to deconstruct, may be the easiest question to ask in mapping this. If you are male, you can map your male cycles by noting when you find your scent to increase, your sexual urges are amped up, and your distraction with attraction is obvious. This would mean you may be in your Action Cycle. Mapping from there could be fairly easy. This is also the easiest way for those in a female body to note where they are in a male cycle. As it is distinctly "male." Those with high male energy, whether in male or female bodies, may find it easier to note when they shift into sleep mode, introspective and maybe even escapist. This would be the male cycle of Inspiration. We know that these may be difficult to discern, but once one has found a mark, the rest is "just math." From there, you can actually mark your calendars for a general mapping of your cycles so that you will know the most sensitive spans of time, the most aggressive, the most exhausting, etc. This is an amazing way to get to know your body in a way that you may never have paid attention to before. How you feel in your body affects your relationships. Understanding the cycles that affect how you feel in your body, then, can help you to understand your relationship patterns. You cannot map everyone's cycles around you, and you do not have to do so in order to gain understanding. Giving yourself permission and understanding when you are in a cycle that is prompting you to be introspective, sensitive, and expressive helps you to keep from blaming others for your mood, your feelings, etc. It also frees you from expecting others to understand you when you have not done the work of understanding yourself. This, in turn, helps you to not blame others for their moods, processes, and states because you now understand that there are cycles involved that are beyond the control of the individual, except in how one understands and manages these. Offering understanding and insight when someone is in a rough cycle can be much more beneficial than offering disgust and anger. For those working on relationships of any kind, whether in a project, or in a marriage, this first, most-basic Cycle of Relevance can save the day, when it is understood. Noting these on your own is the most efficient means of getting into the accuracy of the cycles, but if one wishes to compare this to Lunar and Martial Transits, there may be a pattern unique to you that helps map these cycles. Lunar being relative to Creative/Female Cycles, and Martial being relative to Focused/Male Cycles. The patterns these make in Astrology are not on the same scales of measurement as the cycles of the energies, but you may still find some correlation that is useful. Before we move on to the next Cycles of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions. [Bobby] what exactly is it about any planet that matches these energies.. I know it isn't gravity [Bobby] if the answer for this is too long, just say so and we can come back to that another day ? [MEntity] The use of planets in Astrology is purely symbolic and relative to the developing Sentience and its exposure to, or awareness of, a planetary system. The planets are reflective of cycles in the psyche, bodies, etc., but are not causative. For instance, Mars Retrograde does not cause electronics to break down, or communications to falter, but, instead, reflects when the psyche is more attuned to, and affected by, those areas already weakened in that context. Think of the planets as various flashlights. In the same way that they reflect light in the sky as relative to your perspective, they also reflect patterns back as relative to your perspective. [GeraldineB] Are biorhythm charts a good way to monitor these particular cycles? [MEntity] If one wants to use a biorhythmic calculator for monitoring cycles, it is a good idea to do so, but only if there are calibrations made for what you observe vs what is calculated. For example, you may find that when the calculator reads that your Inspirational/Emotional cycle is critical, that is when you feel the most inspired. Noting this, you can then translate the calculator to accommodate your cycle in a more meaningful way. One would need to watch the calculator vs personal observation for at least 3 months to see what patterns are in need of translation. [GeraldineB] if they don't volunteer -- you said you'd biorhythms in more detail (but I see their cycles are completely different, too, other than the one 28 day) [MEntity] As for biorhythms: these can be used in the same was as Astrology. There are distinct measurements already locked into the patterns of biorhythms, as in Astrology, and therefore some pattern correlations may be found if observed long enough. In the same way that you can measure your M/F Energy cycles in a scale of weeks and not hours, it may take some larger arcs of observation to see the correlations that can be measured by these other systems. Biorhythms will come in handy for monitoring another Cycle of Relevance coming up (Comprehension Cycle -- see next topic) [Maureen] This is all very interesting Michael [MEntity] As we discuss each Cycle, we will mention any correlating system that is most relevant and helpful for monitoring that Cycle. Comprehension Cycle (Frequency and Biorhythm-like) Next up is your Comprehension Cycle. This is directly related to your Frequency. This is not an easy pattern to map, but a pattern that is easy to observe in effect. This oscillation not only describes how Essence processes experiences, but also describes how this is reflected in how the brain gathers, processes, and archives experiences. In fact, all of which we are describing to you, in terms of Cycles of Relevance, is reflected in some circles of known Physics by the term "oscillation." For example, the Relationship Cycle and all of its breakdown between Male and Female Cycles is what might be explored further as a "coupled oscillation," whereas the Frequency is a "harmonic oscillation." And then there are "driven oscillations," which we can correlate to other Cycles. The Frequency describes one's rate of comprehension. It does not describe one's capacity for comprehension, simply the rate of comprehension. This is the rate of speed through which one converts experience into knowledge. Understanding one's rate of comprehension, or Frequency, can help one to free the self and others from forcing comprehension when it simply cannot come faster than expected. To understand this spectrum of Frequency, we will describe the more obvious extremes of high and low, first. A higher frequency Essence and fragment will tend to be similar to one collecting shiniest objects of experience, first. They can collect many, and this contributes to a wide range of knowledge, as they have collected from so many directions. However, to thoroughly comprehend a single experience, it must be returned to, over and over, working through the "duller" levels, until there is comprehension. Each level uncovered is like a level being brought into the light (shiny enough). A higher frequency person might be similar to one who notices the beauty of the light reflecting off of the bumpers of several cars, and comprehending in a flash that these vehicles are truly beautiful, before realizing they are standing in the middle of traffic about be run over. Their cycles are fast, but brief, and broad. They may be "run over" several times before comprehending all that is involved with crossing a street. This does not make them slow learners. Learning and comprehending are not the same things here. Collecting experiences that contribute to wisdom is Comprehension here. Because experience can tend to have many layers for comprehension, having a higher frequency or rate of comprehension can help to gather a great many experiences at once. When one has a lower rate of comprehension, or lower frequency, it means that one is more likely to focus on one experience, and all of its layers, before moving on to other experiences. This might be similar to the person standing at the edge of a street of traffic "forever" before actually crossing the street. But when they do, they will probably not be hit by a car. They notice all of the shiny, but also the rubber, the pavement, the patterns of driving, stopping, etc. Each layer is thoroughly taken in AND THEN put together at once as Comprehension. Once there is Comprehension for a lower frequency, it is fairly complete in the explorations of layers. However, it can take a long time for that movement through layers to finally come into a state that allows for comprehension. [Maureen] Michael -- being at mid-range -- I feel like I'm all over the map -- it's mess some days. Sometimes I get hit by cars -- sometimes I don't. ...and I like to play in traffic. [MEntity] So while the higher frequency may be run over a lot more, he is crossing a lot of roads along the way. And while the lower frequency may be stuck at the side of a road for a long time, he may never find he is run over. These metaphors are crude, but helpful. Another way to understand this is to think of how one might work through an onion. The higher frequency will slice off what it needs and eat the sandwich into which he intends that slice to go. The lower frequency may peel the onion, layer by layer, working through blinding tears, so that the entire onion can be used in its soup. Those in the mid-range will tend to lean in whatever direction is most natural for the experience. The Frequency, or Comprehension Cycles, are basically Cycles that be described as those of Distraction (higher), Interaction (mid), and Attention/Extraction (lower.) Those who are Distracted gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Those who are Interactive (able to pivot more easily between Distraction and Extraction) tend to gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Those who are Extractive, tend to gain experiences by paying attention, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Societies tend to move in these cycles of comprehension, as well, relative to the dominant Frequency of that culture. For instance, much of the occidental world is in a Distraction cycle, so a great deal of its comprehension is gained through distracting avenues (reality tv, twitter, social media, abbreviations, etc.) Understanding these variations in Cycles of Comprehension can bring great relief to the individual and groups aiming for collecting experiences for wisdom. Those who are autistic or "ADHD" or "ADD" tend to have higher Frequencies, for example. Before we move on to the next Cycle of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions on Frequency and the Comprehension Cycle. [GeraldineB] No, I think I "get it" at this point -- may have followups in the future [Maureen] I just realized that mid-range is a really great frequency to have as a therapist Michael -- Thanks! [GeraldineB] I'm mid-range, too (55) I think -- anyway it helps to keep me balanced [GeraldineB] it's when I get Passion as a Mode that I go nutso ? [Maureen] LOL -- me too! [Maureen] I guess [MEntity] This is why there is such a limit within the range of your Frequency point, because there is really no altering one's rate of comprehension. It is not necessary for everyone to be at the same rate of comprehension, or sharing the same Cycles of Comprehension, but there will always be a necessity for understanding and bridging the differences. [Martha] I'm 40 but love social media and I multitask a lot [MEntity] If our symptoms of Frequency are out of synch with your experiences, we would suggest looking at your Frequency point again. It may be incorrect. [Martha] Troy got 40, Jose Stevens got 30 [MEntity] We think you are hit by cars much more than you remain standing by the road, if you will. [Martha] maybe it's 6th being level? [Martha] being 6th* [Maureen] What is Martha's Frequency then? [GeraldineB] I dunno -- I think Martha is extra careful due to an even higher frequency child [Martha] she's 78 [Maureen] Your daughter doesn't make you "multi-task" and like FB Martha! [MEntity] If you relate more to the higher frequency symptoms, we would suggest a correction of Frequency. [GeraldineB] well, what frequency do you see for her, Michael? [Martha] no she doesn't, Maureen ? Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans (Numerology) [MEntity] Next up is the Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans. We will look at that for her if that is requested, but for now we would suggest a process of validation, first. If the information here is cause for correction, Martha will probably know. [Martha] I feel like I process big stuff slowly but can handle lots of things going on all the time [Martha] I don't know if that make sense to anyone ? [MEntity] Her mid-range is not unbelievable to us. [GeraldineB] maybe she IS a 40 but functions closer to 55-60 to cope with others [MEntity] That is correct. [Martha] may be why I need to get away from people regularly ? [Maureen] my Sage sister is at 80 -- and she's like that Martha [MEntity] The Cycle of Life Plans is fairly easy to map and to measure, and has a direct correlation to Numerology. This is one of the few Cycles that has such a direct means of measuring and mapping of it. Every life moves in cycles of completion, which are mapped in cycles of 9. However, this is not the case of the first year of life counting as a first count of 9. Instead, one would use Numerology to calculate his or her "Life Path Number" as an indication of where in the cycle one has entered into this incarnation. Using the known birthday and year is enough. It is not necessary for this to be accurate to an actual birthday, if that is not known, such as in adoption. It is the adopting of the birthday and year that is significant here. This calculation is probably familiar to most of our students as adding all of the numbers of your birth month, day, and year, and then continuing to reduce those numbers by addition until there is a single number. Using Troy as an example, with January 20, 1968, this would be 0+1+2+0+1+9+6+8 = 27, 2+7=9. Using the interpretations already set in Numerology, one can get a sense of what Essence was planning for this current lifetime, and where in its cycles of exploration it might be. To understand where you are within that greater context, then one would use the month and day of birth, added to the current year. So for Troy this would be 0+1+2+0+2+0+1+2 = 8. [GeraldineB] Michael -- since my adoption was completed when I was 7 years old -- and I can't remember the date, what would I use? [GeraldineB] just the current extrapolation based on Day/Month/current year? [MEntity] We suggest using whatever you have been using as your birth day, month, and year overall, since having to choose one. [GeraldineB] ok [MEntity] What we are doing here will be applied to a different Cycle we will describe in a moment, but doing both now is helpful. Troy, then, would be described as having a Life Path Number of 9, but is in an "8 year" of his Cycle of Life Plans. We invite each of you to share your results, as well. [Maureen] I'm a birth 6 in a 10 or a 1 year [Maureen] does the 10 become a 1? [MEntity] Always reduce to a single digit. [GeraldineB] apparently, I am 5 birth and 2 current [GeraldineB] and both Martha and Diane had to leave [Maureen] Is there any significance to being a Priest and having a 6 Lifetime? [Maureen] Or being a Sage and having a 5 Lifetime? [MEntity] Maureen, no, because you will also have every other number as a reference over your incarnations. [Maureen] OK [GeraldineB] sorta like Astrology -- you're probably never gonna duplicate any birth chart again [MEntity] What matters here, for now, is your number as it reflects your Cycle of Life Plans, or "personal year" number in Numerology. [Maureen] OK [MEntity] This Cycle is based on cycles of completion regarding themes, and anything related to those themes. These themes are described by the overall Life Plan/Path Number. Exploring the interpretation of your Life Path Number in Numerology, and where you are in your Cycle of Life Plans, can shed great light on the layers of themes being explored within the lifetime. In terms of where one might be in a Cycle of Life Plans, the numbers might be easily referenced as: 1 = Initiations/Beginnings; 2 = Cooperations/Nurturing; 3 = Productions/Expansions; 4 = Focus/Troubleshooting; 5 = Respite/Playtime; 6 = Intimacy/Resonance; 7 = Analysis/Learning; 8 = Empowerment/Harvesting; 9 = Reflection/Closure. These keywords are suggestions, but you may find other interpretations that resonate more. [GeraldineB] And this would be for the birth number? [MEntity] These keywords, then would be used to describe where you may be in your exploration of the theme described by your Life Path number. [Maureen] would concurrents be a different Life Plan number -- or the same? Aren't they usually the same Theme? [GeraldineB] yea -- I'm on a theme with my concurrents -- Revelation [Maureen] would the numbers also describe your Life Plan number? [MEntity] In answer to Geraldine: Life Path Number = MM+DD+YYYY of birth; Cycle of Life Plans = MM+DD (of birth) + current year YYYY [GeraldineB] ok -- that clarified it [MEntity] In response to Maureen: Concurrents may share a Life Path Number, regardless of when each was born, as the math would be what matters, not the numbers, but where one is in the Cycle of Life Plans might be different. [Maureen] I can see that [MEntity] There is no consistency that we can see in terms of those being the same across concurrents, though. [Maureen] so the same "theme" would be expressed through the Life Path Number -- but the different experiences would be collected for Essence through different Cycles of Life (i.e. what number year you are in)? [MEntity] The keywords we used above are relative to the shorter cycles within the Life Plans, but are not fair to the greater arc of the actual Life Plan. So being in an 8 year has a different context than being in an 8 lifetime. Think of the year number as the Casting and the "Role" as the Life Plan/Path number. Troy, then, would be described as being in an 8-Cast Year for a 9 Lifetime. This is yet another crude way of explaining, but it works for now. [Maureen] OK [GeraldineB] I cannot validate that my "Life Plan" number of 5 (Respite/Playtime) resonates at all with how my life has gone [MEntity] We suggest that you look up "personal year number" vs "Life Path number" when exploring your numbers here. [Maureen] OK - Thanks [MEntity] Geraldine, that is our point. A 5 year is very different from a 5 lifetime. [GeraldineB] I'd have to look closely at the 2 (Current) -- it seems a lot softer than I am (but I've got to look at it in context of my now Personality) [MEntity] We will help each of you in this for now: Give to us your Life Path Number (based on your entire birth date) and your Personal Year Number (based on your month and day added to current year). We already described the numbers as part of the Cycles of Life Plans (based on current year), but we will now describe the Life Path Numbers (based on birth year): [Maureen] Life Plan Number: 6, Personal Year Number: 2 [Maureen] Correction: Personal Year Number: 1 [GeraldineB] lol -- ok there we go again -- Life Plan Number 5 [MEntity] LIFE PLAN/PATH NUMBER THEME KEYWORDS suggested are: 1 = INDEPENDENCE/STRENGTH; 2 = INTIMACY/SHARING/PARTNERSHIPS; 3 = CREATIVITY/SOCIALIZING; 4 = GROUNDING/STABILITY/ENDURANCE; 5 = CONSTANT CHANGE/FLEXIBILITY/EXPANSION; 6 = HARMONY/PEACE/HEALING; 7 = SEARCHING/CURIOSITY/OBSERVATION; 8 = HAVING/LEADING/CONFIDENCE; 9 = ABUNDANCE/HUMANITARIANISM/HIGHER PURPOSE [Maureen] That is great Michael! [GeraldineB] that actually resonates [MEntity] Comparing these simplistic keywords between the Path Number and Year Number may help validate, but exploring each further in the context of Numerology can help expand upon that, then. Taking the numbers you offered: if Geraldine is in a 5 Lifetime, then the themes would be around Change/Flexibility and Expansion, but if she is in a 2 year, then it would mean that that greater theme is now being explored through having to work in Cooperation and using Nurturing. [GeraldineB] good, that makes sense for me [MEntity] This means that approximately every 9 years, the theme of 2 = Cooperation and Nurturing repeats itself in a new layer of the Life Path of Constant Change/Flexibility/Expansion. Maureen would be in a 1 cycle of new beginnings and initiations aimed at helping further explore her themes of Healing/Peace/Harmony. Keep in mind that we are referring to a completely different system from our own, but it works here in understanding this Cycle of Life Plans. [Maureen] that makes sense for me as well Michael [MEntity] We might more accurately describe these numbers, then, as Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans. Again, the only number relevant to the Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans is the "year number" based on the current year. The Life Plan number (based on birth year) is a part of a greater cycle we will describe in a moment. [GeraldineB] Is it possible to have a quick answer as to why someone like Holmes, the man who just killed 12 people and wounded 56 others would deviate so far from any of these descriptions? [GeraldineB] These would appear to be purely "positive pole" [MEntity] In response to the question regarding "negative" lifetimes, it would be correct to assess that these are more neutral, or aspiring, themes, but each can fall into negative states. A 5 Life Plan can bring great growth, expansion and flexibility for the individual, but can also fall into wreaking havoc, chaos, and suffering upon others. The craving for stimulation either attracts the constant change, or imposes it. We will not go into all of the negative states, as this is thoroughly covered in competent Numerology texts. REMAINING CYCLES As we have gone extensively beyond the time frame of this workshop, we will describe the remaining cycles briefly. The three cycles we already described are the most-immediately useful, with tangible references and impact, if you choose to understand and map them. Those first three cycles describe patterns that emerge as a result of what Essence infused into the life before "you" were born, and how those emerge. You will always have a choice in how those play out, regardless of their repetitive emergences. We realize, however, that it would not be useful to add on the remaining cycles, but to leave this exchange with the focus on the three that have been discussed. We will cover the remaining in another way through this channel. The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan. The next tiers are the: CYCLES OF EXPANSION, which include one's Cycles of Learning/Resistance; Cycles of Harmony/Discord; and Cycles of Creativity/Destruction; CYCLES OF PURPOSE, which are Cycles of Humor, Cycles of Discipline, and Cycles of Focus; and finally CYCLES OF DISCOVERY, which are Cycles of Healing, Cycles of Surrender, and Cycles of Acceleration. (Note: Since this session went 4-1/2 hours, Michael and Troy decided that the other Cycles will have to be done at some future time. Maureen and I have already discussed it with Troy -- hopefully, we'll be setting up another session in August that isn't an OMW, but will continue with this Cycle information. glb)

    Energy Report: AUGUST 2014

    ENERGY REPORT August 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) AUGUST continues emphasis on the Attitude of REALIST. Reading July’s report is relevant in August, as well, but rather than approaching a state of Realism, most would be “in” that state by now. “Reality” would likely take on a bit sharper of an edge, more focused a vision, more direct a line of sight. For some, this may feel like pressure, for others, this may feel like a sense of clarity. A fairly serious mood looks to be in place for August, both in personal terms and worldly terms. Many of our students appear to be in pivotal or turning point vectors regarding some layer or level of their lives, and this is the case on a larger, collective scale, as well. This is not an ominous report, but a normal process that comes around on a fairly regular basis. Sometimes these come around in ways that are more collective than at other times, and this is one of those more collective vectors. If your experience of the Realist state is feeling pressured, it would likely be a matter of your simply having to make a choice, or focus in a direction, that you feel uncertain about. Considering the Chief Feature of the year, Impatience, it is likely a matter of your feeling you should already be ahead of where you are, having procrastinated, vacillated, or evaded the responsibility that might come with the direction. There is no validity to your concern that you should already be where you may wish to go. Your worry, your pressure, your uncertainty is a natural indicator that there is work ahead, and if you choose that direction, you can and will do the work. You can help relieve the pressure by simply taking a step, and then another, and another. There is no need to measure based on an imagined endpoint, but only on the next step. The imagined endpoint is fair to uphold as a destination, but you must still do the work of getting there. If one were driving from New York City to San Francisco, it would make no sense to use the map local to San Francisco. This is true of your life, your visions, your goals, as well. Use the map local to you. DATES OF INTEREST Aug 04 - 07 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Hyper Focused - This energy shift looks to be a shift into even higher “Male” or “focused” energy than has been experienced in a while. For those who are higher in female/creative energy, this may not feel so pleasant, but it can be used to their advantage by taking on tasks that require this kind of focus. It may not feel pleasant, but only because it is unfamiliar, not because something is wrong. For those who are already high in male/focused energy, this may be a particularly sensual, stimulating, and eager time, with the body in a heightened state of reception for pleasures. This can feel distracting, but it can also be used as a means to sense the directions in which your pleasures truly lie, listening to your “gut,” and considering your happiness as a factor for choices. Aug 25 - 30 -- MAJOR NEXUS - Convergence - This may, or may not, be on an obvious scale, but it looks to be several days wherein parallels converge based on similar realizations on a larger scale than usual. We think this is related to global conflicts, but it could be environmental, as well. In personal terms, we think this would be regarding internal conflicts and indecisiveness regarding commitments, direction, etc. A balance would likely shift so that one direction or another would take emphasis. The more consciously this choice is made, the more likely it would be a direction that is of personal or global fulfillment. The more this is left to entropy, the more likely it would be in a direction of necessary breakdown and rebuilding. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER AUGUST: USE YOUR LOCAL MAP - When measuring your steps along the way toward an envisioned destination, it is important to pay attention to your current steps, not compare yourself to the destination or ideal. The more you pay attention to your local steps, the sooner and more directly one can reach a destination, all while being open to any diversions that might actually add to the depth of the experience. CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT - If you are concerned about a choice or direction, you must choose the direction you want. You know what you want. To pretend you do not know what you want is to presume you cannot have what you want. You will gravitate toward what you need no matter what you choose, but choosing consciously in a direction you want helps clear a path to what you need, as well. Even if you find that your choices are limited, choosing what you want from within that range can help you to broaden that range of choice.

    Energy Report: JULY 2014

    ENERGY REPORT July 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY shifts the emphasis in the Overleaves of the year to the Attitude, now. The Attitude this year is REALIST. In a Realist year, it is often a year where many face “reality.” Reality is often divided between what is real to yourself, and what is real to everyone. Some lean toward emphasis on only what is real to themselves, and others tend to lean toward what is real to everyone. For example, if there is a railing lining a boardwalk, it is real to everyone. It just is. There is no one who will come to that boardwalk without that railing being a part of the reality. If they come to the boardwalk where there is no railing, they are in a different reality. There is a consistency in what is a shared reality that is not dependent upon beliefs, upon individuals, and upon expectations. It just is. And then there is the individual reality that is based upon interpretation, experience, history, fears, expectations, beliefs, etc. So that very same railing that just “is” can also be offensive to some, and beautiful to others because of personal aesthetics. If two people bang into the railing, one will simply own his stumbling into it and move on, while another will be angry and blame the railing for being of poor design and in the way. So that single object exists just as it is, and then it also exists as it is experienced and interpreted. That is the simplified range of “reality.” For the Realist, it is an on-going practice to reconcile those two fairly distinct points within the range of reality. Most Realists will choose one over the other, particularly in younger Soul Ages, but in the older Soul Age, it becomes important to reconcile one's personal experience of reality with the reality, itself. And this is what is meant by the Poles that make up the Attitude of Realist, with its Positive Pole of Objectivity, and Negative Pole of Subjectivity. As with all of our system, “negative” only describes a more limited, restricted end of the spectrum, while “positive” only describes a more expansive, inclusive end of the spectrum. When one is in Subjectivity, one can only interpret reality in term of what it means to himself. It does not matter what it means on its own, or to anyone else. When one is in Objectivity, the personal experience is allowed, but does not usurp or eclipse the validity of the independent reality or the reality of others’. If a Realist in the Positive Pole bangs into the railing, he will allow himself his reaction, note the personal reality of that experience that was probably painful, but also just note that it was a railing. He bumped into it. That is all that happened. As July unfolds, many of our students will be shifting into this type of examination of their lives. What is “real?” Only your interpretation of events, experiences, and people? Only the independent existence of those things that prompt your experiences? Or both? With July also carrying with it a fairly high “male energy,” or focused energy, even the highest of creative energy people will likely feel a shift in focus toward their projects, aspirations, directions, necessary choices that need to be made, and examining all of this in terms of Realism. What are independent objects of reality that one must navigate vs how one feels, thinks, and acts about those objects? So as July unfolds, most of our students will likely move into this effort to reconcile the personal reality with that of independent reality. For most, we see this as coming as a kind of relief. This is because when one buries independent reality with personal reality, it can be quite weighty, overwhelming, daunting, and either painful, numbing, or distracting. It is not that one’s personal reality is inherently this way, but when one does not sift through what is projected and imposed so as to extract what IS, then one can have a very difficult time gaining footing even in their own perspective through their own Attitude. This is part of why there are yearly Overleaves, so that no singular Personality is “stuck” working only with his or her single set of tools. This means that Idealists can eventually sort through their idealism, as well as Stoics and Spiritualists, etc. And the Realists will have their years when they expand in their sense of possibility with the Spiritualist year, or look to improve upon things in the Idealist year, etc. DATES OF INTEREST July 30 -- ENERGY SHIFT - REALITY CHECK - This looks to be a kind of check-in point where most students will be looking at how the sorting of their reality is going, letting go of what likely needs to be let go, and amping up focus on what is working and of interest to sustain as the reconciliation between personal and objective reality. No Nexus in July HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: THE EXISTENCE OF A THING IS AS IMPORTANT AS MY EXPERIENCE OF A THING - When one is only concerned with what one experiences and has decided is true about a thing, the thing is no longer relevant. You have merely exploited a prompt for exploring only yourself. When one is only concerned with what is independently true of a thing, you begin to lose your perspective and default to something the equivalent of blind faith. Blind dismissal and dependency upon deferring to the mere existence of a thing begins to diminish the experience of reality, the self, and great beauty, joy, and play can be missed. You begin to be just another thing. So to allow one to have one’s experience of a thing while also acknowledging its independent existence allows for a range of reality that is full of life. If you are experiencing the weight of reality, you probably need to look that the independent state of reality for clarity. If you are apathetic, numb, bored, uninterested, or distracting yourself, you may need to allow room for your experience of reality and to own it. Both of these things are “being realistic.”
  7. MICHAEL SPEAKS "Mother and Child" From Conception to the Completion of the 1st Internal Monad March 24, 2013 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We may begin our responses to your questions. We understand the emphasis on an initial topic. However you have arranged this to be explored, we are ready. [GeraldineB] Hello, Michael. I have a large somewhat formless topic about pregnancy and how it affects both the mother and developing fetus all the way through the first year of life for both of them. To paraphrase the Paul Simon lyrics, "Mother and child, a family reunion" might be the title. For many women pregnancy is a time of obsession, hormonal washes, physical issues, expectations and fears. It's as impacting as a full Internal Monad is to many others. Plus, during that same time period of physical, emotional, and mental changes to the mother, there are similar ones occurring to the developing baby, including processing of over half of the stages of the first Internal Monad pre-birth. So, it's the entire combination of mother and child -- a woman's insights and sensitivities due to pregnancy, and are there ongoing discussions with Essence due to the pregnancy, are agreements being rewritten if the original plans changed, i.e., not the same Essence is going to incarnate into the baby than was initially planned for. We know that many plans and agreements are made between Essences, but choices made by the prospective mother can alter those. Similarly, when a baby is born early, how does this affect plans and agreements? It's simply that we don't know much about the entire process that happens from conception onwards nearly as well as we know about dying. There are hormonal washes that affect the zygote (and mother). There can be twins created but one dies and reabsorbs. Many women suffer huge letdowns or postpartum depressions due to the hormonal flipflops and unmet expectations. How much does being pregnant during a time of danger and heightened fears affect the unborn developing fetus? To start, may we have the "7 Stages of the 1st Internal Monad," similar to the other ones I've requested? I realize that not all of these subtopics are framed as questions, but we're seeking a holistic or comprehensive approach to the topic of mother and child from conception through the first year of life for the baby. Your response should elicit far more additional questions than can be answered in a single session. :) NEXT (your cue to take over, Michael) MEntity: The process of birth and death are similar in that each has a gravity and momentum that is quite difficult, if not impossible, to halt, slow, or reverse. As with most processes, these are quite crude and given over more to the gravity and momentum in the earlier experiences of the process, and then this evolves to include more conscious awareness and choice, interjecting higher probabilities for halting, slowing, or reversing the experience. In other words, in earlier Soul Ages, there are rarely Agreements necessary or in place, and there is rarely a sense of choice in the matter, so that a birth is either obligatory, or a product of survival tactic. In later Soul Ages, and in developed cultures and societies, the element of consciousness and choice comes to be prioritized over gravity and momentum, moving away from obligation and survival. The Seven Stages of the First Internal Monad We will share the details of the 1st Internal Monad, which may shed light on this process as both a matter of gravity and momentum, and as one that evolves to include choice and consciousness. Keep in mind that as one moves through the 1st Internal Monad, most of this is being done BEFORE physical birth. Only the final stage is fulfilled post-birth. However, as with all other Internal Monads, if any of the Stages remain in the Negative Pole, so do the subsequent Stages, rendering that Internal Monad incomplete until all Stages have moved into the Positive Pole. For the most part, the mothering host is passive in this event, evolving from complete passivity (obligation, survival motivations) to active passivity (embracing the consciousness and choice involved, while allowing room for this new life) The first Stage, then, would be INITIATION, with the Positive Pole being CONCEPTION, and Negative Pole being ORCHESTRATION. As we are sharing these through Troy now, we may find the words to require refinement at some point, but these are quite acceptable. This might be considered the Stage of the Zygote. As with all Positive and Negative Poles, there is always "entrance" through the Negative and a move through to the Positive. Therefore, Orchestration is always necessary for the Conception to be. The Positive will always be inclusive of the Negative, but if the move into the Positive is not made, then the Negative tends to exclude the Positive. Orchestration is "negative" in that it still a division, a manipulation of parts, a maneuver of all into alignment with this intention. When those parts come together, there is Conception. Those parts include a massive amount of considerations that the Personality may boggle to comprehend. In the earlier Soul Ages, these considerations are usually left to the gravity and momentum of biology, so as long as the mother is in any way open, Conception can come to be. In later Soul Ages, probabilities, astrology, past lives, genetics, geography, fellow fragments, Cadre and Entity mates, and so on, come to be considered as part of the Orchestration, and only then can Conception come to be. Conception, then, is basically the acceptance and success of what has come to be Orchestrated. In other words, Conception does not occur if that first pole of the first stage is stuck. Once Conception is successful, then the move into the second Stage can begin through INTROSPECTION. This Stage of Introspection is marked by a Negative Pole of INVASION, and a Positive Pole of FORMATION. The First Stage is primarily a function of biology and Essence, but Personality, or the mothering host has not come into full awareness or comprehension of this process, yet. This Stage of cellular division begins as Invasion because there is now a separate consciousness/Essence working with the materials of the mother's body. This is necessary, but eventually comes to be embraced as Formation, the Positive Pole. If this Stage remains at Invasion, there tends to come the first of many challenges, not only for the developing embryo, but for the mothering host, as well. This Stage leads into the 3rd Stage of REALIZATION. This is, usually, the first time the mothering host comes to realize she is pregnant. Though one can detect pregnancy very early in the process, this is actually when it is REALIZED, not just known or suspected. This is marked by a Negative Pole of DISRUPTION, and a Positive Pole of AWARENESS. Disruption can take the form of realizing the impact that having a child will have on the life, either in immediate or long-term ways, but can also include the point where the rejection from the mothering host is instilled, either through abortion or rejection of the position as nurturer. This Stage reveals the formation of the Embryo. Even if pregnancy is known quite early, a sonogram, or definitive physical sensation, usually attends the Realization of this Stage. Disruption will always be a part of pregnancy, but if it shifts into Awareness, it can continue smoothly. Awareness is when the negotiation with the host Personality is secured. In earlier Soul Ages, this is where obligation or resignation to survival or religious motivations tend to take over, and the Awareness is within that context. In later Soul Ages, this is when the Personality of the mother, her Essence, and the Essence/s involved with the Embryo, come to allow room for this event in the life. Awareness is then based in CHOICE, not obligation. This has no bearing on the intention to release for adoption. If this choice is determined as part of the Realization Stage, the Essence knows this, and it may actually have been intended. However, if this Awareness is not secured, it can lead to resentment from the Disruption, either by the mother, or by the child, if eventually born. Because birthing is so dependent upon passivity by the mother, part of the entire point of the 1st Internal Monad is to gain a greater understanding of its host and to work WITH that host. If this is not done, the Stages can either be interrupted, or remain in the Negative Pole through birth. In other words, it is part of the evolving process of birthing to learn how to move beyond Invasion and Disruption to work with the plans, hopes, fears, and body of the mother. The 4th Stage If the Embryo forms, and Realization has come, whether left in the Negative Pole, or moved through to the Positive, it will now begin to move toward MANIFESTATION. This Stage is parallel to the gestational period, and is marked by the Positive Pole of PRESENCE, and a Negative Pole of DIVISION. Division is necessary for the recognition that a new life is actually growing and forming, and that this growing and forming life is dependent upon another. If this Stage remains in Division, then it can build upon resentments, and usually falls into obligation. Depending on the Soul Age of the Essence being born, this may lead to a kind of exploitation of the mother for the sake of just being born if a younger Soul Age, but will lead to a halting of the process if an older Soul Age. Even if the mother has determined to allow the pregnancy, if it is from obligation, the older Soul would rather move on to more willing hosts. However, that is not always the case, and if probabilities, geography, genetics, etc. are more important for the greater intention of the life, even the older soul will continue. By this time in Soul Age, the capacity for choice is present, and even if the Personality begrudges the birth, it is known that it was chosen. Otherwise, the mother can terminate. The Positive Pole, PRESENCE, is reached when both are not just aware of one another, but accept the realization, the physical presence. The 5th Stage This then moves on into CONTENTMENT, or the embryonic period, marked by DEVELOPMENT in the Negative Pole, and MUTUALISM in the Positive Pole. Development is, basically, the natural gravity of biology fulfilling a momentum. Development will happen, unless stopped. Even if the pregnancy is unwanted, Development will happen. Development moves into Mutualism when both begin to experience the benefit, or potential benefit, of their mutual efforts, acceptance, and presence. The 6th Stage If the baby has continued to survive into the second trimester, then MAGNETIZATION begins. This is marked by a Negative Pole of COOPERATION, and Positive Pole of AGREEMENTS. Cooperation here is either a path into Agreements, or another form of tolerance for the invasion, disruption, and/or development of the previous Stages. Cooperation is minimal in communication and exchange between the Personality and any Essences or bodies involved. Agreements begin when all are on board, so to speak. Agreements can have been made long before this point, but this is when they come to be more substantiated, adapted, and updated with all involved with the Life Plan. Those who will be a part of the life from birth through death are alerted, and begin their draw toward the fragment attempting to be born. For those further into the life, the "marking of their calendars," if you will. The 7th Stage The final Stage of the 1st Internal Monad, EMANATION, begins in the third trimester, and is marked by a Positive Pole of VITALITY and a Negative Pole of DISINTEGRATION. The actual birthing process is symbolic of this Negative Pole, as the breaking of the placenta, cutting the umbilical cord, and separation of baby from mother comes into full Emanation. To this point, Essence has only been able to manage the process, but could never Emanate through the body. There is never an Essence "in" the body of any stage of a birth, until the first breath outside of the body. Upon first breath, there is the bonding and anchoring, and the body begins its activation as representative of Essence. If all Stages to this point have been in the Positive Pole, then that first breath is one of Vitality. If any previous Stage remains in the Negative Pole, then the body begins its life in a state of Disintegration. Disintegration can be literal, but can also be a process of further division from the mother as it prepares for adoption. The new body has up to three years to reach Vitality. If a child has not moved into that final Stage of the 1st Internal Monad, death is almost always a result. In the best of environments and circumstances, with the most willing and loving of parents, this can still be the case. The Internal Monad process is a personal process, not one that can be altered, hindered, or helped by those around the individual beyond what is allowed. This can also be reflected in the experience of "postpartum." If the baby has not breathed in Vitality, it can leave the mother grieving. Or angry, resentful, and experiencing her own version of disintegration. If you are alive and attending this gathering, you have probably completed the 1st Internal Monad successfully. Disintegration can also be a stage when there is a shift from the managing Essence to a new Essence. A kind of "walk-in" process, which can then shift into Vitality after. Though the Personality is already "programmed" into the body, it does not come fully-formed upon birth. It is activated over time. For the first three years, the child reflects the parents' or caretakers' overleaves and fears. Until the 2nd Internal Monad begins, the Personality of the child is fairly latent. The Personality comes to be activated more between the 3rd and 7th years of life. Follow-up Questions and Answers We will turn this back over to you for the more specific questions that were not helped by the delineation of this process of birth. [Jana] Why can't some women conceive, despite nothing being physically wrong or at least not detected? I have read many times that there can be "blockages" to feminine/mothering energy, so the child cannot survive. Is there truth to this? And variation on this — some women seem unable to have male babies — again I have read that relationship to men on the whole may be a problem in the mother — is there truth to this? Correction - sometimes they may conceive, but have a miscarriage, sometimes they don't conceive at all, i am asking about both. MEntity: It is dangerous territory to render the capacity for one's biology to be more in control of the individual than it is. We spoke of "gravity and momentum of biology," and this does not go away, even for the most enlightened, conscious, and aware. The capacity to give birth, to sustain birth, the leaning toward genders, etc. are a part of the genetics, and not (usually) having anything to do with the choices or "blockages" generated by the Personality. There is scathing in the Physical Plane that will always have to be factored into the practice and art of Choice, but these cannot always be anticipated. Scathing can be as obvious as losing a leg, to the realization that the body cannot or will not birth. Scathing is our term to describe any friction that brings about challenges to any of your relevant bodies. Beyond the simple nature of biology, there can be a multitude of nuanced causes for those who have challenges to birthing. For instance, one may have fallen prey to the imprinting and pressures to procreate, but the body cannot betray the truth. That fragment may not (really) want to have children. There are times when the timing is off for all, or some, involved, and the process is delayed, altered, or removed as an option to accommodate this. There is no one answer for why one has challenges to pregnancy, or to how that pregnancy is fulfilled, but we can say that it would be rare that it was simply a matter of "blockages" to "energy." If that were the case, babies would never get born at all. [Jana] I think the "fragment may not really want to have children" is what I was asking about - whether that could stop it. (despite physically trying obviously:) MEntity: It can, yes. But it would have to be a fundamental truth for that fragment to the point where the body represents this. Bodies cannot lie. That is not to say that one who has an unwanted pregnancy actually wanted one, but that it was not a fundamental truth for that fragment to not have one. As a society and culture evolves, the options for fulfilling Agreements with other Essences for birth move well beyond the necessity for biology of a mothering host. The pressure to birth, or to impose birth, begins to be alleviated. Those who are born by any other means beyond biological host, such as through cloning or test-tube births, the 1st Internal Monad shifts to BEGIN at first breath, and is completed over the 1st 3 to 7 years of the life. [Jana] that was my alternative question :-) MEntity: CORRECTION: If there is any formation of a body over time before first breath, the 1st Internal Monad is processed as usual. If there is cloning involved, then the process is shifted to be for the first 3 to 7 years of the life. By "cloning" here, we mean in the more advanced processes of replication, not the slow route known now. [Question] How was the IM process for me? I'd expect the uterus be slightly hostile considering I killed her in a past life (accident!) and is there anything left effecting present time? MEntity: As we said before: if you are alive and attending this session, you completed the 1st Internal Monad successfully. The uterus of a new Personality would not reflect or represent a relationship from a past life. By the time a body is capable of sustaining a healthy pregnancy, that body reflects the genetics, biology, and nature of that Personality, not any past Personality's genetics, biology, or nature. [Question] unless there are agreements to do so? MEntity: For the sake of a group format, we will not address your personal history as a zygote or embryo, but we can say that you successfully completed that 1st Internal Monad. [Comment] ok that's enough then :) MEntity: Yes, there can be Karma involved, which can eclipse everything. [Bobby] I'm thinking specifically about a nephew of mine, Cody, who died of SIDS at day 80 post birth. What was at play here either with him specifically or if you care to comment on SIDS generally? MEntity: "SIDS" is often a result of an incomplete 7th Stage of the 1st Internal Monad. There can be many causes or symptoms of this, but it is only one of many ways the incomplete Internal Monad can show up. We know of no valid case of "SIDS" that was not a matter of remaining in Disintegration. The Essence withdraws for any multitude of reasons, and if no other Essence steps in, the body will stop. We can comment more on the details of this individual in another format, but there would seem to have been some timing/geography issues for that fragment that made a difference. [Bobby] ok, will do [Brian_W] Michael, could you discuss briefly on the meaning of a birthmark, if there is one? MEntity: This is one of the few ways that Essence has an option for packaging information from a past life that might be relevant to the intentions of the current life. There could be a system described for helping to interpret birthmarks in some general way, but for the most part they are much like dreams in that the symbolism is ultimately relative to the individual. In a very general sense, birthmarks tend to refer to fairly recent lifetimes. Those that are on the legs or below the waist tend to represent unfinished actions/goals. For those birthmarks above the shoulders, they tend to represent unfinished thoughts, philosophies, ideals. For those on the torso or arms, these tend to reflect unfinished or interrupted relationships. Those birthmarks that can be easily hidden tend to be more subtle in gesture and symbol, while those that are more obvious or difficult to hide, there may be a decided focus on the unfinished. From Essence's point of view, these are beautiful methods of communication, but it is easily forgotten how a giant bruise across the face is more than just a clever reminder to complete work on ideals. That is the nature of the "double-edged sword of forgetfulness" that is inherent in life between the Physical and non-Physical. When you are "here," you so easily forget your immortality, and while "there," you so easily forget your temporary pains. [Ingun] I want to ask something about the difference between men and women. In lack of better words, it's only the female body that has a “baby making machine”, and the ability or potential to fulfill a pregnancy. Is there or what is the difference in operating of the centers/chakras and/or the energetics of the Body and between Essence and the Body in men and women? Can you explain to us something about the difference. Have women higher capacity or access in any way due to the ability to go through a pregnancy? MEntity: There is some difference, but not much. There are a multitude of sentient (and non-sentient) species who are not limited to two sexes, or one sex holding the power of birth. Only within the structures of society will there be any difference in terms of power and process, even in terms of the use of Chakras. To attribute a special power to the female who can give birth is about as useful as attributing great meaning to a man who can create a company. We are not diminishing the position, power, or meaning of birthing, but we are simply not attributing anything spectacular or unwarranted to it. A female can give birth without any active participation, while a male cannot create a large company without full, active participation. That does not make one less or more than the other. Just different. Birth and pregnancy is a biological gravity for a species. It is no more or less magical than the growing up of the body after birth. However, there is something to be said for the fact that Human bodies are divided into representations of 100% Female or 100% Male Energy, in terms of how those energies manifest in biology. Without an Essence, a "male" body is 100% Male Energy. Without Essence, a "female" body is 100% Female. This is also known as Focused/Creative. Outside of the imposition of the Essence Ratio, it only means that Female Energy must Focus Creativity, and Male Energy must Create Focus. In other words, birthing is a kind of Focus of 100% Creativity/Female. Starting and running a company is a kind of Creativity for the 100% Focus, or Male Energy. We are being highly simplistic here, but our point is that none of this describes one as having more than the other, but that all have not only the inherent qualities of the body, but the inherent qualities of Essence, blended into a uniqueness that is then further made unique by the choices of the Personality. We must conclude here for today. We must say goodnight here.

    20140601 Ask Michael

    ASK Michael Live Chat June 1, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [ViP] Hi Michael, can you briefly describe the 7 circles of Conscience? [MEntity] For our response to be relevant, we ask if you are speaking in terms of "conscience" being that which is one's inner guide, or do you mean this in terms of awareness, or do you mean this in terms of consciousness? We know these terms are often used interchangeably. [ViP] You recently described "conscience" as being the sense of inner responsibility and compassion that had 7 Circles to it, so perhaps it would be in terms of the inner guide? I can provide the definition you gave if it would help [MEntity] We only wished for the clarification. We understand now. There may be other ways to describe the Circles of Conscience that are relevant to an individual, but we will offer these. Conscience is different from Consciousness and Awareness, but the merging of those three factors are vital for one's evolution, so they are often used interchangeably by the time one is an older soul. Conscience is that inner sense of guidance that one develops and learns to listen to as a means of navigating the life and for making choices. Conscience in its Positive Pole might be INTEGRITY while in the Negative Pole might be GUILT. The 7 Circles of Conscience, then, might be: SELF-NURTURING, SELF-PRESERVATION, SELF-SUFFICIENCY, SELF-DEFINING, SELF-ACCEPTANCE, SELF-ACTUALIZATION, and then SELF-MASTERY. Self-Nurturing Polarities would be CURIOSITY as the Positive Pole, and NEGLECT as the Negative Pole. Self-Preservation Polarities are VITALITY and DEFENSE, positive and negative, respectively. Self-Preservation would be VITALITY, and DEFENSE. Self-Sufficiency would be GENEROSITY, and PANIC. Self-Defining would be COMPASSION, and LOATHING. Self-Acceptance would be SOCIAL, and LONELINESS. Self-Actualizing would be EMPATHY and DENIAL. Self-Mastery would be RESPONSIBLE, and CONTROLLING. Many of our students often hover in the circles between Self-definition and Self-Mastery. We can elaborate upon this topic in a dedicated discussion. [Colleen] In 1937, Amelia Earhart disappeared. What became of her and what was her soul age, role, and overleaves? [MEntity] The fragment in question would be the Intellectually-Centered, Moving Part, 7th Level Young Scholar with the Goal of Flow that she would slide to Growth and Submission; an Idealist in Observation that slid to Passion, and a Chief Feature of Arrogance. This fragment appears to have encountered technical issues in-flight and was forced to crash-land near an island where she and her Task Companion lived out the rest of their days. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, like with the descriptions of the Server, Artisan and Warrior castings last Ask Michael, could you provide info on the Scholar-cast in those same formats? [MEntity] Scholar-Casting often shows up as heightened sensitivity, often felt in deep, emotional ways that "make no sense." This is often interpreted by the Scholar-cast as such a vulnerability that they often are the most secretive and "personal" with their exploration of the life. This Casting often gravitates toward anyone who can help them to "come out of themselves" in a way that is uninhibited and less self-conscious. This Casting often generates in the lifetime a love/hate, push/pull relationship with intimacy, at once desiring it greatly, but also convincing themselves that it is an unnecessary distraction. The Scholar-cast often struggles with his or her attention being fixated or fulfilled. In other words, when fixated, it is a means of escape, while when fulfilled, it is a product of exploration. These fragments can be of the most "kinky" of all. The Scholar-cast, more than even the Sage, or Sage-cast, can require feedback for insight into themselves, into the life, and the patterns of that life; they must "bounce" ideas off of others, see and hear these ideas played out in some way, so as to better navigate the library of thought that they carry. This can sometimes turn into a kind of paralysis if that sharing is not fulfilled in some way, locking them down with a sense of defeat for not having anyone to share those ideas and ideals with. We can always elaborate upon any of our terms, but for the sake of taking more questions today, we think this is a helpful start. [annay] Do we create more karma with people we end relationships with? Lets say if the other person is not happy with you ending the relationship ? Would you have to work it out in another life?? Even if you have forgiven the person yourself?? [MEntity] Anna, there is no categorical response that we can give to that question. The nature of Karma is so relative, that in one instance there may be Karma, while in another of the same circumstances, there is not. However, we can say that the ending of a relationship does not often generate a Ribbon only from the mere ending of the relationship, however difficult that may be for either party. Disappointment and grief are not inherently Karmic. If the one who ends the relationship has put the other party in some form of danger, or has significantly interfered with the capacity of the other party to choose, then a Ribbon can be generated. By "interfered" we mean that there is an active imposition on the capacity to choose. We are not speaking of the grief-stricken reactions that can impose restrictions of choice on the self. That is self-karmic, but not Karmic between the ones who have parted. If disappointment and grief were Karmic, we doubt we would ever return to Tao. [royce] Hello Michael , recently I asked about Objective Art vs Subjective art. I would like to take that into the realm of Modern storytelling. I don't feel there are a lot of examples of "Objective storytelling"; how might it differ in terms of approach than a lot of what we see in cinemas today? still lean heavily on suspense? horror? [MEntity] Before we reply, what do you mean by the additional end of your question? Are you asking if suspense and horror are ways to be Objective, or are you rhetorically suggesting that cinema leans heavily on suspense and horror? Please clarify. [royce] basically if a story was written with the intention of being objective art ( made with all of the centers) how might it look in comparison to a lot of stories out today which is more or less aimed to be emotional roller coasters. would objective art movies look almost entirely alien to us in how they would be approached? [MEntity] We understand and will respond. The effects of art are not often a fair representation of its origins. Objective and Subjective Arts can be interpreted and experienced in any number of ways relative to the interpreter. In fact, a great deal of Objective Art is "hated." It is not often received well. It is often threatening to the comforts and familiarities of the Personality. The same goes for genres. There can be Objective Horror and Subjective Horror. Objective and Subjective Art can only really describe the sources. However, there is validity to the fact that the source can have some effect, of course, but the individuals receiving/interpreting that art will always have the final say for how it is experienced. In terms of modern storytelling, a great shift is already in motion away from passive storytelling and into interactive storytelling. As we, as sentience, are now in the Century of Choice as a Platform for the species, CHOICE is becoming the vital key to a truly Objective method of storytelling. Modern gaming is already on the cutting edge of this, with Sages, Artisans, and Scholars flocking to its initial waves to help refine, expand upon, and spread its foundations. This move away from passive storytelling and into interactive storytelling is yet another expansion of impact from the shift in Soul Age away from Young to Mature. In that regard, it is an evolution, and represents Objective Art, as the source of that creativity must be inclusive, considering the broadest range of perceptions, paths, and probabilities as a means to fulfill the core of a story. We have never seen anything like it, and we find it beautiful. We often "sit in" with Troy as he plays. We are finding there is little difference between the architecture of gaming, and the process of incarnation, parallels, and probabilities. All higher concepts are eventually reflected in the Physical Plane in some way, and this dimension of existence is finding its footing. [Maureen] Michael, you said (to my sister): “Your higher Frequency and higher Female Energy allows you to endure much more than would someone with a lower Frequency, or Higher Male Energy. That endurance allows far more opportunities for healing that might not have been explored, otherwise.” Would you elaborate more on how endurance is experienced through the Higher/Lower Frequencies and Higher/Lower Male/Female Energy? [MEntity] Endurance can be a tool for any Frequency or Energy Ratio, but they would tend to show up differently. In Higher Frequencies, endurance is utilized by cycling through experiences of challenge so that no cycle through it is too deep or too much. That is not to say that a challenge might not feel or seem to be "too much, or too deep," but in the end it would not be. Higher Frequency fragments tend to work through experiences in layers, move on to other experiences, and other experiences, and then cycle back through. This helps bring about cycles of healing between cycles of challenge. Higher Creative/Female Energy helps one to emphasize problem-solving, intuitive navigation, and a trust in chaos, which leads one to having a greater endurance in terms of allowing challenges to be a part of the life. The pros of both of these can be that both allow room for healing. For the Lower Frequency fragments, there is still processing in layers, but it is from the inside/out of the experience, rather than from the outside/in. Higher Frequency fragments eventually get to the core, while Lower Frequency fragments start at the core. Because of this start at the core, there is little room for moving beyond the layers "above them" in that experience. They must find a way through all of those layers. Because of this dynamic, it can be difficult to access the healing that could be of benefit to that Lower Frequency. The Healing would tend to come in near the exit of the layers, if you will, and not often before that. That is not to say that healing is not available to the Lower Frequency when submerged in the core of an experience, but that they often do not allow for it. For the Higher Male fragments, the navigation of experiences can be one of a linear nature, structured, and intent, with a laser-like focus, which can also exclude anything distracting, such as healing. Again, it is not that healing is not available to the Higher Male/Focused Energy, but that it often must find its way into the path so as not to be a distraction. Does this help? [Maureen] Yes it does [MEntity] We must conclude here for today. Good evening to everyone.
  9. ASK MICHAEL - OPEN FLOOR March 2, 2014 Channel - Troy Tolley [DianeHB] From Kurtis: Hi Michael, I'd like to ask for elaboration on the Realist Attitude, Reserve Mode and Perseverance Mode within the time allowed. Such as how the Negative and Positive Poles function, as there isn't much on any of those traits. If there isn't enough time for 3, that's fine too, then we can just elaborate on the Realist Attitude and Reserve Mode. MEntity: The Realist Attitude is the Exalted, Action Attitude. Attitudes describe a base philosophy through which life is interpreted. In this case, the Realist interprets life through the larger patterns of experiences that have proven to be trustworthy. These experiences tend to be tangible experiences. Anything outside of that collection of tangible patterns and experiences is not considered to be "realistic." This is not to say that the Realist is not open to new, tangible experiences that would build upon previous tangible experiences, but that if it is not already within that range, it is simply not trustworthy. In other words, if it is worth questioning, then it is not "realistic" to count on it. This can tend to leave the Realist with a very refined, but broad, net of what is considered trustworthy and "real." When the Realist is in the Positive Pole, OBJECTIVITY, it means that there is no investment in what is that range of tangible experiences. That Realist is open to all experiences, and if it moves into that range of trust, then so be it, but if not, then so be it. The Positive Realist simply sees WHAT IS. The Realist in the Negative Pole, SUBJECTIVE, starts to become invested in what is wished to be real, what is expected to be dependable, and what is longed for. Their interpretation of experience then shifts outside of its range of trust, and moves more into that state of investment. It is no longer about WHAT IS, but about WHAT IS NOT. And the effort to turn WHAT IS NOT, into WHAT IS. RESERVE MODE is the Ordinal, Inspiration Mode. Modes are how one RELATES, and the HOW of fulfilling the Goal. If Passion Mode is the approach to relationships and to fulfilling the Goal through the freeing of emotions, then Reserve Mode is the approach to relationships and to fulfilling the Goal through the refinement of emotions. Those in Reserve Mode are acutely aware of their feelings and the energy that flows behind those, but are quite selective about what is shared or released or put into use. If you think of emotional energy as a kind of fuel, then those in Reserve prefer to use their "fuel" only when it is necessary, efficient, or relevant. So those in the Positive Pole, RESTRAINT, will find strength in the building up of this energy for those uses where it is more necessary, efficient, or relevant. It is a kind of allocation process, and not one that is intent on ignoring or rejecting emotions. However, if Reserve falls into the Negative Pole, then this allocation process falls away from the strength of Restraint, and into INHIBITION. Inhibition is the same process, but with only the intention for protecting the emotions, or protecting one's "fuel." Considering the queue of questions, we will move on from here to the next question. [Larissa] Anxiety seems to be a growing struggle for many these days. I understand that anxiety relates to fears/focus on the future while depression is a focus on the past. For a person who has difficulty identifying that they are in fact competent and understanding ‘why’ they feel overwhelmed/anxious/fearful, what tools can we use for ourselves or to assist a person in uncovering contributors to anxiety and help to shift our/their anxiety from a negative and debilitating concern to one that can be more easily understood and navigated, and eventually leads to our/their “recovery” (for lack of a better word), neutrality, or and/or healing? Any additional insight you can share on the topic is welcome and appreciated. MEntity: First, we will say that Depression can also be about the future, but is a more resigned position from that of anxiety. Anxiety would like to regain control, while Depression may have resigned that there is no control. In both cases, an underlying issue is the same: one cannot find themselves in any position of beneficial influence in their internal stories, images, possibilities, etc. The conditions you describe could be more of a syndrome than a mood, so it is also important for us to note here that a response from us in broader terms may not be able to address the mix of issues that contribute to one's anxiety or depression. In general, the healing measures that can help would begin with a return to some semblence of control. Since both Anxiety and Depression are about helplessness, it can be beneficial to direct the attention toward some area in which that person can rekindle his or her sense of control. Often that redirection of attention can be in the most surprising of ways that then cascades a return to confidence across the spectrum. For example, arranging a bouquet of flowers in a vase. This may seem useless, but that focus on such beauty and how one can enhance it with some nurturing moves, can be quite healing. Or an effort to smile. This can seem useless, as well, but making the concerted effort to smile, and then holding that for 30 seconds, can help ignite the sense of levity and energy that would be useful for dealing with the anxiety or depression. So, as a general response, we can only suggest here that ANY return of participation in ANY action that brings a sense of contribution and control is useful here. We would suggest not dismissing even the silliest or most "useless" of efforts. These add up. Add 5 of these little events to the day of one who is depressed or anxious, and it can turn around that day. Other suggestions: petting of animals; playing with children; repairing something minor; singing the "abc song;" counting; making time to sit under a tree; etc [Tyrone] Ok: About the Mormon/Latter-Day Saint church: Would Michael say that the current portrayal of Joseph Smith's life is generally historically correct? As in mainly, what were the events surrounding the time when he reportedly was shown metal plates and translated the book of Mormon? (Was it something like higher plane beings, extraterrestrial contact, wishful dreaming, actual gold plates, Urim and Thummim, etc?) MEntity: There is very little that is accurate regarding the life of the fragment known as Joseph Smith, though much of that inaccuracy was perpetuated by the fragment, himself. This was an early Mature Priest, Artisan Cast, in Acceptance, Passion Mode, an Idealist, with double Arrogance. His zealousness compelled him to bring about his ideals at any cost, even if that meant lying. There was no channeling. The source was directly of the imagination of the fragment. With that being said, his intentions and ideals appear to have been "good," even if colored by the imprinting and paradigm at the time. The aim appears to have been toward some ideal of agape, but became mired in mythologies that ended up promoting this agape as an insularity, instead. [Philip] About the Zeta information. Is this to be taken seriously? Is this channeled material? MEntity: There are many variations on what might be phrased "zeta information." Are you asking of this, in general? And are you speaking of the off-planet species that this tends to refer to? [Philip] What I am seeing is about a Planet X and a pole shift on earth. Yes, off planet species MEntity: Your question is quite broad, so our response will be, as well: to take the information you are coming across seriously, or not, is up to you. We cannot make that choice for you. In terms of a group of off-planet species generally referred to as "zetas," this has gone wildly into the realm of symbolism, and not accuracy. Though there are species that are similar to the descriptions often offered, the use of "Zeta" to group them is about as accurate as describing Humans, chimpanzees, and apes as "American." The symbolism of these aliens have come to be the replacement for what were once considered demons. In other words, they are a modern construct of personified fears, in many instances (not all). The species referred to, in general, are not as sinister as are often depicted. In terms of "Planet X" and a "pole shift," there is some validity to the fact that there are "planets" in trajectories that could be worrisome for Earthlings. Though we are not certain as to when any of these may be of necessity for concern, we do not think it is any time soon. As for Pole Shifts, these occur all of the time. They are not unusual. The pole shifts often referred to as being on a scale of massive destruction or change has never happened. We know that it is possible, but highly unlikely. [Juni] How is it possible to tell the difference between (and validate) when one has had actual contact/conversation with others while sleeping versus it being "just a dream" and is there cording happening when it's the former? MEntity: If you dream about a person, you are most likely in some form of contact with that person. Even your sex dreams about a celebrity are "real," in that regard. The Astral Plane is not restricted to known or appropriate relationships, and this is why you might even have sexual dreams about a family member. In the Astral Plane, sexual exchanges are not exploitative or ugly. They are forms of nurturing, support, and resonance. This is often carried back into the waking state as disturbing or distracting, because of the rules of relationships in the Physical Plane, but one can simply let them be what they were, and not impose temporal concerns on them. The Physical Plane is not burdened by those Astral relationships/contact, beyond the memory of the person dreaming, and what he or she chooses to do with that. In most cases, it is quite specific to the need of the dreamer, and not the one dreamed about. We emphasized sexual exchanges here, but we speak of any exchanges. And, yes, Cording does get involved. In most cases, the Cord would have had to have been in place already. If you dream of communication with someone you know you know in the dream, but do not know in waking state, it is often the case that you simply do not have a current incarnation that can reference that fragment very easily to you. If you dream of an exchange with someone who is faceless, or is vague, it is often an exchange with some facet or extension of yourself. [ViP1] Hi Michael, I have a couple of questions about Essence attributes. First, do the frequency and focused/creative energy ratio of an Essence remain fixed across all of the Spark's grand cycles? Or are they chosen anew, from scratch, at the beginning of each grand cycle? Second, do the roles in Essence have frequencies of their own (separate from the frequency of the Essence itself?) I have read from another channeler's channeling of you, that the roles do have such frequencies, ranging from Warrior (lowest) to Priest (highest), and that the frequency of a Role implies how "solidly" a Personality of that Role would be in touch with and connected to the tangible world around them (the lower the frequency, the more connected). Is this valid? MEntity: In response to your first question: Yes, Frequency and Focused/Creative Energy is locked across all Grand Cycles within a universe. These are the very unique "signatures" that identify a fragment with or without a Role. Once that signature is claimed, that fragment is capable of being recognized and identified, even upon return to the most conclusive oneness that is Tao. The Roles, however, also carry their own frequency, but that is only in terms of inherent characteristics that are then overridden by any individual Essence. So there is validity to the fact of more solid Roles, and less solid Roles, and that solid or less solid effect is a generality in each lifetime. However, the more one Manifests Essence, the more one's own Frequency begins to override any solidity or liquidity. In earlier Grand Cycles, the Frequency of the Essences will tend to gravitate toward the range that is inherent in the Roles, but as one's number of Grand Cycles rise, the differences between the Frequency and the inherent range of the Role can be quite drastic. Those who are in False Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the default of the Role. Those who are in True Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the Frequency of Essence. Between lives, and in terms of Review, the default of the Role will tend to be the case in the earlier lifetimes, and then, eventually, the Essence's own Frequency is owned and used. The above is meant in the context of how one processes experiences. However one processes experiences, the Frequency will still be static. [brian] Hi Michael, could you describe what Narcissism is in relation to the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies and how to reduce or eliminate its causes and effects, both internally and towards others? MEntity: Narcissism, in relation to the different bodies, would simply be a matter of contexts for where narcissism is upheld. It would not be much different in any of those contexts, though. Narcissism is often an extreme of either Arrogance or Self-deprecation, and is developed as a means of protecting what has come to be accepted as the most fragile thing in one's life: THE SELF. Those in extreme Self-deprecation or Arrogance where valid narcissism has developed will tend to have a very difficult time hearing, or listening, to anything that contradicts their conclusions; will have a very difficult time focusing on anything other than the preservation or serving of the self; will actively or passively refuse to accept that any social rules or contracts are applicable to them; will often hear any insights or suggestions for help to be merely criticisms and insults to them; will tend to default to the distraction of blame of anything other than the self for what goes awry in the life; and will tend to consider any instances of helplessness, anger, or depression to be the cause of someone else. Or something else. So the key for addressing this, even though it is an extreme, is the same for addressing any issues of self-esteem. It can be a long road to recovery, but the individual would have to come to terms with the fact of fragility in others, as a way to recognize the strengths within the self. This is because the one thing that locks those in Self-deprecation or Arrogance away from confidence is the idea that they are somehow less than what another person wishes them to be, or more than what another person can handle. To address someone in Narcissism, we would have to discuss with that person, specifically, the more detailed suggestions that could help that are relative to the causes of that person's fears. In general, though, the narcissist can start by allowing his or her fragility, and honoring that fragility in others. [brian] Is it possible for someone in Narcissism to actually care about others, even if they have difficulty expressing it appropriately? Or are they truly "in it for themselves?" MEntity: The irony here is that this can then become a source of empathy and strength that no longer requires defenses. Brian, that tends to depend on Soul Age. The younger souls tend toward this condition as a form of near-erotic love and admiration for the self as a way to compensate for that which feels makes him or her so different from others. Older souls will tend to go in the other direction, despising themselves, and desperately seeking to be rescued from the trap of those differences that define them, thus creating many inappropriate scenarios, or constant crossing of boundaries. This is not to say that the narcissist does not care, but that the caring is often conditional on how well it distracts the narcissist from his own disgust. So the older narcissist would want to begin to treat himself or herself with the same eagerness to care and nurture and love as he or she would any other person. [wyatt] Why are there identical pyramid structures erected in various ancient civilizations when historical records haven't indicated the civilizations have had contact with each other previously? As in Mayan mexico and indonesia/bali/Cambodia [MikeClev] (China...) MEntity: Wyatt, the ideas for the architecture was from off-planet species, and those were shared among those civilizations, even as those civilizations were disparate. That is the general answer we can offer. There are nuances, and variations, of course. [wyatt] will the off planet species strike again? MEntity: We would not describe it as "strike," but yes. Wyatt, our idea of "soon" may not be accurate to the Physical Plane, but we have yet to see a probability over the next 50 to 100 years that does not include contact with off-planet species on an open and wide scale. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  10. Michael Speaks - March 13, 2011 Troy Tolley, Channel "Frequencies and M/F Energies" MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We will share on the requested topic of Frequency and Male/Female Energy Ratio. First, we will point out that these two characteristics are those of Essence, and NOT of Personality, so they may or may not be obvious to those in a Body. The human body can accommodate the entire Frequency that is used to describe human sentience, and the Energy Ratio of the Body is relative to the gender. The less a fragment manifests Essence, the more one is inclined to default to the inherent qualities of the Body. In the case of Frequency, regardless of your Essence's Frequency, one who has rejected Essence would be an open-range of Frequency that can often lead to frazzled, short-circuiting, and many illnesses. In the case of Male/Female Energy Ratio, the gender of the Body would be the emphasis, so that a male body leans strongly toward focused energy, and female toward creative. For the first seven years of life, in general, this is the case for everyone. This is why gender roles are often so immediately established, and why children are quite sporadic in how life is processed. We will define FREQUENCY as that range within the spectrum of Human Consciousness/Sentience that describes how a fragment processes experiences. The Frequency Range that we use to describe where your Essence functions is only within the range of HUMAN Consciousness/Sentience. Frequencies range far "above" and "below" that of Human Sentience. But your particular point in the Frequency of Human Sentience describes just how your Essence processes its experiences, and more one is manifesting Essence, the more one is aligned with that Frequency. When one is aligned with his or her Frequency, then processing experiences is comfortable to one's familiar pace, and no amount of pressure, shame, or discouragement throws that process off. One who processes experiences slowly over time will do so and be fine with this because it is how he or she learns and grows, and this is owned as a part of wholeness. One who processes experiences quickly, but must often repeat them for the sake of working through the layers, would know this and allow that to be his or her way. One who is more flexible and processes some experiences in repeating layers, and others in long stretching, completed arcs, understands that he or she does things differently in different situations. The HIGHER FREQUENCIES are 65 and above, and these are the Essences who process experiences in layers, in repeating scenarios, in repeating patterns. They store their experiences in the cells of their bodies in a way that can be activated in "the blink of an eye." These activations often fold time in a way that the past is suddenly the present all over again. The pros of the Higher Frequencies are that experiences can often leave one unscathed, unaffected, and generally trusting because one learns that to go through an experience over and over means that one can handle most anything in life. The Higher Frequency can help one to practice non-attachment and be free from the weight of the Physical Plane demands, even if those demands are great. The cons of the Higher Frequency is that experiences are often repetitive as a means to work through the layers, and just when one thinks he or she is "done" with an issue, it will suddenly spring from the moment in a way that seems it never left. The Higher Frequency will also tend to have long stretches of great health, and then plummet into something that can often be life-threatening or profoundly debilitating because the cells have been carrying the unfinished, unprocessed experiences of so many events, relationships, etc, and it must eventually "catch up with itself." The pros of the Lower Frequency of 35 or below are that experiences may exist within the life for great stretches of time, but when they are done, they are done. They are fully completed, comprehended, integrated, and left behind. They do not return, at least not in any significant way. These fragments can have a sense of intimacy with the Physical Plane and their bodies in a way that often translates into a kind of confidence and security. The cons of the Lower Frequency are that the weight of a long-arcing experience can sometimes be the death of that fragment, literally, because it is simply too overwhelming to endure. The Lower Frequency can become completely bogged down with many blind spots internally and externally, and "stuck forever" in one experience, even as other unfold all around him or her. Frequency is directly reflected in the Immune System of a body, and those of a Higher Frequency can tend toward non-specific Autoimmune dysfunctions, while those with Lower Frequencies can tend toward more specific Immunity issues, such as cancer in specific areas. We will speak more to the extremes of Frequency for the sake of differentiation, but we state here that those in the mid-range may find relevance in both the higher and lower of Frequencies. As Frequencies describe how one processes experiences, it also means how one processes the experience of OTHERS. When OTHERS become involved, then, there are various Frequencies involved, naturally. Every fragment has the capacity for "stretching" his or her Frequency up or down 20 points. So a fragment with a 60 Frequency could fluctuate up to 80, and down to 40. To go above 80 or below 40 would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. This means that this fragment with a Frequency of 60 would gravitate toward others who share in that similar Frequency Range because that would mean experiences are shared. For that fragment to experience someone outside of his or her range would either result in complete discord, confusion, misunderstanding, exhaustion, or exasperation, or it would require a third Frequency to bridge between the two extremes. As Frequencies are that means for sharing experiences, then the Frequencies of those in groups will tend to naturally fluctuate to the greatest common denominator range. A party, for example, would gravitate toward the greatest common denominator, and those above or below that may or may not remain, or enjoy the experience. Knowing that you may be in a relationship or in a work situation with someone whose Frequency is outside of your own range can help you to determine if mediation is necessary. The older the soul, the more flexible within those ranges one can be, but in the earlier cycles, these are far more rigid. Within each lifetime, the process of adolescence is when the Frequency is most locked and inflexible, leading to vicious or cowering cliques and dangerous outcasting, so one can see why flexibility and fluctuation are much more preferable. If FREQUENCY is how one PROCESSES the experiences of life, then Male/Female Energy is how one CREATES the experiences that will be processed. Though a human body without Essence is either 100% Male, or 100% Female, as the Essence manifests, that energy adjusts and adapts. The body would always remain with its base energy, but the Essence would override this to a great extent. More accurately said, Essence would use that base to its advantage, or override it. Even more accurately said, Essence and Personality would use that base to its advantage, or override it. Male/Focused Energy is that energy that is naturally linear, planning, strategic, forceful, with momentum, direct, and action-oriented. Female/Creative Energy is naturally non-linear, spontaneous, intuitive, chaotic, spiraling, indirect, and inspiration-oriented. Those with a higher Male Energy at 65 or higher could be said to create experiences from those qualities described above, and those with higher Female Energy at 65 or higher could be said to create experiences from those qualities described above. The Ratios do not fluctuate. However, because this is a means for creating experiences, and the cycle of incarnations offer a complete range of experiences, and Essence wants to experience that range, then each fragment eventually learns to balance his or her Energy Ratio with various external means. Both the Frequency and the Ratio lend themselves to provoke, at some point, the necessity to turn to each other for help, for balance, for wholeness. So those with Higher Male Energy would eventually find ways to implement the support from those with Higher Female Energy, and vice versa. Again, those who are balanced in these energies would fluctuate between the qualities described above. All Entities are designed so that the Energy Ratios are 50/50, when averaged. All Cadres represent the entire range of Frequency from 0 - 100. Frequency and Energy Ratios are those elements of Essence that one accesses before anything else. Even the most rejecting of fragments tend to allow their Essence's Frequency and Energy Ratio through to some extent. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN for those who may have questions relative to the topic. Typing 3 asterisks *** indicates that you have a question, and we will take those in order. Yes, Maureen. [Maureen] For example - where would someone like Robin Williams be in Frequency, Male/Female Energy MEntity: The fragment who is Robin Williams appears to have a Frequency of 80 and an Energy Ratio of 60 Male to 40 Female. [Geraldine] Since Frequency and Energy ratios are Essence overleaves, how much do these play a role in how Essence integrates not only its fragments' experiences, but those of others in the Entity? MEntity: First, we would not call them "Overleaves," but we understand your question. We would call them "of Essence," but not Overleaves. Next, we would say that Frequency plays a strong role in how Essence processes its Personalities. Higher Frequency fragments might find obvious "circular" or spherical patterns across lifetimes and Personalities, whereas Lower Frequency fragments may find something more like "pyramids" or triangular patterns. We will elaborate upon this in another exchange with you, if you choose to explore it. Frequency also tends to affect how Personalities are integrated in terms of how many tend to require "collection" at the end of any given Soul Age Level. Higher Frequency Fragments tend to "leave" the most Personalities "behind" and then circle back to collect them at the end of that Soul Age Level. In other words, Higher Frequency fragments tend to be the most-fragmented, and then require great downtime, so to speak, for reintegration. This can also carry over into a single lifetime regarding the generation of sub-personalities and their reintegration. The concept of "soul retrieval" is a Higher Frequency concept. Those with Lower Frequencies tend not to require the gathering of those fragments in quantity, but compartmentalize them, and then integrate them at certain points. To be clearer: compartmentalize them along the way, and then integrate them. The fragments within an Entity tend to group up in terms of Energy Ratios so that the group is 50/50 average, and then expand beyond that. Because the Energy Ratio is one that is focused on creation of experience, this tends to average or "zero out" since the emphasis within the entity tends toward the processing of experience. The Frequencies within an Entity tend to create a kind of spiral, or fractal, when layered in terms of overlapping ranges, and this is then an even more elaborate spiral in terms of the Cadre. When combining both Energy Ratios and Frequencies, the best we could describe the process of reunion is by crudely describing it as a sort of rebuilding of a DNA chain. [Geraldine] Thank you -- anything that helps us visualize [Oscar] Hey M's =) How are the frequencies distributed over the Cadre? Like a Bell curve with the median at 50 or differently? MEntity: Yes, in what might be considered a bell curve, with 50% ranging between 36 and 64, and 25% at either extreme. [Bobby2] You've referenced before that as the Soul Age/level increases we tend to go outside our comfort zones with regards to frequency and m/f energy ratios. I think I can really see that taking place within my own life. Would you care to say anymore on that? MEntity: Every fragment is a fragment of Tao, and in so being, each inherently, ultimately craves creation, expansion, and evolution, and while any pattern of comfort and familiarity is necessary for some amount of assimilation, comprehension, and steadying, it always gives way to the creative, expanding, and evolving. The nature of evolution is one that is built from Triads or Positive, Negative, and Neutral. For most Fragments, the incarnational process is one that moves from Positive to Negative to Neutral, so the incarnations begin with all of the elements that are directly inherent, and then expand into those that are directly challenging, and then toward balance. This happens on large and small scales, of course, because one can see these same patterns within a single lifetime, but this is why one might find himself "going outside of his comfort zone" because he is ready to take on another part of the triad of evolution. However, we would like to point out that "going outside of your comfort zone" does not always mean that you are moving into Negative, or challenging states, but that you may be opening to the neutralizing elements, such as those who complement your Ratio or Frequency in a way that brings balance. [Diane_H] Is the speed at which people tend to move through life related to high and low frequencies? For instance some people talk fast and have fast reaction times, whereas others have slower speech and physical movement, or somewhere in-between. MEntity: Behavior is not linked to Frequency. There is a tendency to associate flighty, speedy, or chaotic behaviors with higher Frequencies, and solid, sedentary, or steady behaviors with lower Frequencies, and while this CAN be the case, and often is, it is not consistent enough to be a correlation. The Essence known as Stephen Hawking has a Frequency of 92. This is not to say that one cannot "feel" the Frequency of another, especially if one is intuitive, but it is not always reflected in behavior; it is reflected in life patterns and that person's processing of experiences. More often than not, the higher Male or Female Energies are far more reflected in behavior, so that the Higher Female Energy displays the more chaotic, creative, and non-linear; the Higher Male Energy displaying the more direct, strategic, and linear. Keep in mind that no single trait of Essence or Personality can be discerned in such an isolated way, as they are all parts that add up to a whole that is greater than those parts. The reason Frequency is often associated with Behavior is because Frequency most obviously shows up in how one uses his Primary Centering, which is the Body's means of processing experiences. In other words, if someone is Emotionally-Centered and of High Frequency, then it could be said that he or she is Emotionally Fast. If someone is Moving-Centered and of Low Frequency, he might be of Slow Motion. The Energy Ratio is then reflected in the Part of the Centering. Centering is how the body or Personality processes experiences, and the Part is how the body or Personality puts what was processed back out into the world. Centering is how one finds his or her way around, and Part is how one determines where one is. If someone is Emotionally-Centered, Intellectual Part, and with a Higher Female Energy, then that Personality's expression into the world about what is emotionally experienced may be scattered, unorganized, non-linear, etc. Troy would be a good example of this dynamic. So, it could be said that Frequency is the "speed" at which one Thinks, Feels, or Moves as a means of navigating life, and Energy Ratio is the manner in which that is expressed, inspired, or acted out in the world. Yes, there are fragments at 0 and 100. The fragments at 0 tend to have the most lifetimes/Personalities, and the fragments at 100 tend to have the least. These usually make up less than 1% of a Cadre [Bobby2] wait, I thought it was the other way around, lower frequency = less lifetimes and higher frequency more lifetimes? since lifetimes would equate to more fragments to collect MEntity: Bobby, when we said that those of a Higher Frequency tend to have more Personalities to "collect" or integrate at the end of a Soul Age Level, we meant that in terms of relativity, not quantity. In other words, even if a Higher Frequency fragment has only 3 Lifetimes for a Level, they might have to "collect" those three Personalities at the Level transition, whereas a Lower Frequency fragment may have 100 lifetimes for a Level, and have none to "collect" at the transition. [Brian_W_] So then how does one correct it so that we can focus ourselves better? MEntity: Brian, first one would do well not to think of his or her having to "correct" any natural element of himself, herself, or Essence. One would want to do what he or she does WELL first. So if one is chaotic and intuitive over strategic and logical, then one would want to BE that to the degree that he or she does it well, and then that becomes a resource for those who are "too" strategic and logical, while those who do strategic and logical well then become a helpful resource for the chaotic and intuitive. In your current, dominant paradigm, and culture, "chaotic and intuitive" have negative connotations, but they are profoundly vital strengths that develop even the cultures most resentful of those qualities. For instance, The United States was built from chaos and intuition, and openly encourages them, but only insofar as they contribute to the strategic, logical, and planned. If not for the chaotic, intuitive, and creative, the United States would not exist, but then, neither would they exist without the strategic, logical, and manufactured. Our point being that there is nothing to correct, but if one chooses to do so, the effort to balance the extremes can be of benefit. And that balance is an obvious process of enlisting those with strengths that one does not already have, and then allowing that to be a part of the life. For instance, in using Troy as our example, his patterns will never change in outcome without the complementary qualities that are inherent in those who will eventually help to balance out our work through him; that is, if they choose to endure. [AnnH] On Earth, do nations/countries have frequencies and M/F ratios? As a collective? MEntity: Ann, yes, there are collective Ratios and Frequencies. More developed and stable countries are near the 50/50 ratio, and represent the wider range of Frequency, whereas the less-developed, struggling, and challenged countries tend toward extremes. For instance, the United States could be said to be at a Frequency of about 55, with a 45 Male/55 Female Energy Ratio, while Egypt might be now at a spike toward 75 Frequency and a 20 Male/80 Female Energy Ratio. This is not to say these same characteristics are of the individual, but that they generally manifest in this way collectively. [Karine] Recently, you told me that my Essence's higher frequency sometimes shows up as feeling as if I am the one doing all the work of a relationship, and that my higher female energy contributes to that. Is this a characteristic of everyone with a higher frequency/higher female energy? How does it work for people who have a lower frequency/higher male energy or are more in the mid-range? MEntity: It seems that it is fair to say of anyone who is of the higher Frequency or higher Female Energy in a relationship that he or she may feel as if he or she is "doing all of the work" of that relationship because those with the higher Frequency and/or higher Female Energy can tend to be the more adaptable. It will not matter if one is in the extreme of higher Frequency or Female Energy, but that it is higher than someone with whom one is relating. The higher Frequency and the higher Female Energy tend to be expected (internally or externally) to adapt faster to the solidity of the lower Frequency or Energy. Of course, the higher one's Frequency and Female Energy, the more one would experience this. For those in the mid-ranges or balanced ratios, the challenges of adaptation are relative to the comparison between their own numbers and others. [ClaireC] Michael, is there any similarity between frequency and David Hawkins' calibration of consciousness ? MEntity: There are similarities, but they are very different systems. Our system is inclusive of all Sentience, whereas the system in question is relative to human experience only. The terminology is in conflict with our system, as well, since "enlightenment" or "shame" are not relative to one end or the other, for example. The Frequency we describe is not relative to emotional, intellectual, physical, or spiritual evolution, but simply a description of a point in a spectrum, much like describing the colors of visible light within the broader spectrum of light waves. For example, while we can describe Human Sentience with a spectrum from 1 to 100, Human Sentience within the range of Sentience is at the 75 point in that spectrum of ALL Sentience. Cetaceans would be at approximately 40, and Gorillas at 85. And none of these represent any more enlightened than another. We will conclude here for today on this subject. Good day or evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  11. Ask Michael Live Chat Open Floor Q&A November 2, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We were not "kidding" about the wave of short-circuiting issues over the next month or so. It is rather pervasive and growing. MEntity: We will leave the order up to Geraldine to manage. We will simply say that you may begin your questions. We are ready. TyroneT: My question is about human psychology. I know the Michael definition or explanation of male and female energy is a matter of focus versus creativity, but I don't remember exactly where I found it (it could have even been from another channel), but I'm sure I've seen somewhere the statement that one difference between human males and females is a tendency towards certain centering. TyroneT: One area that this knowledge for me would be applied are in the issues of the LGBT community, especially the transgender community, so if it's possible, I'd like connections to that. I doubt a full-enough elaboration will fit into fifteen minutes, so just a tidbit or foundational info from which to base later session questions on would be enough. TyroneT: Official Question: What are the psychological differences, tendencies, or characteristics inherent in having a physically male or female body/brain/subtle body? MEntity: First, we find there is little consistency among Gender correlation with Centering, but high consistency with cultural paradigms. Cultures and societies are predominantly of one Centering and/or Part over the others. Centering is not biological in any way. The Centering of an individual is not settled upon as a habitual form of navigation until the 2nd Internal Monad, and is then fairly stable, however, Centering is designed to be flexible and to change, not to be static. MEntity: Next, in response to your "official" question, we will say that the only differences between bodies in terms of male and female are the degrees of consciousness. The less-conscious a Personality, the more it's identity, behavior, processes, and navigation are based from the base functions of the sex. MEntity: To help in understanding this, a male body without an Essence is 100% Male, 100% focused, 100% linear, 100% the stereotype of the pervasive ideal of what it means to be a male Human on Earth. However, the Energy Ratio of an Essence alters this. This alteration begins at birth, and takes about 7 years for a full adjustment. MEntity: There will never be, and never has been, a Human who is 100% male or 100% female. TyroneT: ok. I'll ask about various lbgt phenomena later MEntity: However, regardless of one's Energy Ratio, if the Essence is rejected, then, say, if one has a High Female Energy, but is in a Male Body, that Male/Focused Energy will tend to dominate. MEntity: And by dominate, we do not mean that it would make the individual masculine or necessarily functioning by standards of behavior attributed to "males," but it will dominate in many ways, subtle or obvious. It will be aggressive, forceful, reactionary, etc. MEntity: This subject is far too complex and intricate for us to cover in 15 minutes. We know we have not covered a response to your question, but we suggest this be a topic for further exploration. 01:02:04 PM JanaK: Hello Michael. Can you please give generic tips for someone looking to move a country for the sake of personal and professional growth and adventure - other than obvious research? JanaK: I.e. how to gauge whether a particular place would be good for me - other than visiting it? JanaK: Or whether such radical move would even be good for me? JanaK: Or whether there are more desirable vectors where I am or where I am considering moving to? MEntity: Jana, to make a decision such as this, and to do so "blindly," would mean using one's intuition. Using one's intuition means LISTENING. By "listening" we mean to say that intuition is soft, subtle, and impulsive. It is not loud, pushy, or compulsive. So if you feel compelled to move somewhere, feel pushed to do so, and feel distracted by it, we suggest allowing that to come up and be acknowledged, then set gently aside as you listen to see what is beyond that noise. Your intuition may say the same things, but you just want to check in with that less-distracted, panicked, or anxious part of the self for validation of one's sense of direction. MEntity: In addition to this, if your compulsion to move is motivated by a feeling or idea that life will be better somewhere else, check in with yourself to see if that is valid. A change of scenery and geography can do wonders for altering the life in positive ways, but only if that change of scenery is the actual part that is key. In other words, moving to another location does not leave YOU or your life behind. You will still have to deal with your feelings, history, beliefs, wounds, etc. Our point being that if the move is motivated by escape from the self, then it is often more helpful to direct the movement internally, not externally. MEntity: If you can check in with yourself and listen to the softer voice of impulse and creativity within, and it is not hijacked by anxiousness and overeagerness to escape, then your next step is to look at the locations that appeal to you. MEntity: These locations appeal to you for various reasons, including potential, Agreements, Sequences, Vectors, etc., but they are only a part of the story. MEntity: Potential, Agreements, Sequences, Vectors, can be anywhere, and you could throw a dart at a map and these would spring up in activation relative to wherever you move. But there is validity to your sense of attraction to an area because those areas are already active with those elements. Though you can find Agreements, etc. anywhere, it can make a difference that they are already active and negotiated when you arrive. MEntity: So once you have concluded that you are choosing to move because you want to move, and not as a means of escape (unless there is a valid threat), then you can narrow your choices down by the simple sense of attraction to locations. Narrow these down to 3, and put up a symbolic image of each so that you can see these on a daily basis. MEntity: As you pass these symbols on a daily basis over a week or so, note which one your eye is drawn to the most. Be mindful that your eye may be drawn only because of the image you picked, but this will not matter. Once you notice which one is standing out, and you play with the idea that this is the location you will aim to move, you will feel the pang of resistance to that place versus one of the others. MEntity: From there, it is a matter of honoring your choice. 01:22:08 PM Kurtis: Hey Michael, like last time with Saturnine body type health, would you please elaborate on the martial body type health? Thanks. MEntity: Martial Body Type Health corresponds to the Adrenals of the body. This means that the Martial Body Type can be greatly affected by its capacity for management of stress. In fact, while stress is a factor for all body types, in the Martial Body Type, it is far more immediately converted into effects. MEntity: Various forms of Catecholamines are released on a regular basis in response or reaction to experiences. This range of hormones are responses and reactions to stress. These tend to have the Martial Body Type health in a constant state of fight or flight, regarding experiences. MEntity: Hormones that manage various minerals and water content of the body are connected to the Adrenals, and have direct effect upon the individual's blood pressure. Other effects from the Adrenals are reflected in the metabolism, as well as the differentiating processes between the male bodies and female bodies in Androgens. MEntity: When this is balanced, the Martial Body Type is long-suffering, enduring, and can manage to navigate some of the most debilitating obstacles of health and existence. MEntity: When this is imbalanced, it can show up as extreme lethargy, constant stress and anxiety, hyper-agitation and over-reaction, along with extremes of anger, temper, and depression. MEntity: In some extremes, there can come to be a developed hatred and self-loathing for the body as it is represented by its gender, and this can lead to self-mutilation and rejection of the gender. MEntity: Overall, the Martial Body Type is all about the physical manifestation of all energy that passes through that body, whether in thought or emotion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catecholamine 01:44:04 PM scott: Michael, i have a question about ORIGINALITY...i'm sure many artists suffer with this block of needing to be original. though upon looking at my favourite artists i wouldn't say their work is at all without influence...so what is it we are responding to when we say something is original? Is it the enthusiasm from the artist making it? Is there such thing as originality? I would love your take on originality to help put an end to this ancient crisis of the artist once and for all." MEntity: Originality is valid. Originality does not preclude influence and inspiration. There is a difference between originality that is inspired, and one who is copying or imitating. If one of our students were to write a book about his or her experiences of our teaching and conveyed that in a way that teaches what was learned, it will not matter that the core of what is being taught did not originate with that student. What matters is his or her original take on that, as he or she was inspired. Not even our own teaching originates from us, but is utterly original. We only teach our take on the truth, love, and energy that originated beyond us. But our teaching is utterly original in its form. MEntity: Originality is what one does with one's inspiration. MEntity: Beyond this, the judgments will continue to be subjective in terms of what is "truly" original, or not, but the dividing line fairly clearoriginality is inspired, while non-originality is a copy, imitation, or mimicking. MEntity: For instance, one does not need be inspired to put together a model airplane, or to sing a song that is a pop formula created by someone else. One may feel inspired, but the form taken is not. It is copied. It is mimicked. It is an attempt to capture what was inspired in the original. MEntity: Andy Warhol was an artist with originality, and he exemplifies the precarious, but clear line between copy and creation. MEntity: Consider one more thing when pondering originalityyou are utterly original. You are utterly unique. You are a single idea that will never be replicated. Yet you are not new. You are an evolution. You are built upon inspiration. You are not a copy, though "you" have existed multiple times. Art is similar. MEntity: Let your art, your originality, be an evolution built upon inspiration, and you will relieve yourself of this perplexing and distracting concern. 01:58:41 PM Juni: From a previous transcript Juni: Though it is rare, there are some fragments who do not settle on one particular Chief Feature, but these are usually cases of what some call "Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder," Juni: Schizophrenia," and "Multiple Personalities." This is due to a breakdown in communication among the Physiological aspects of self (Obsessive-Compulsive), the Emotional aspects of self Juni: (Schizophrenia), or Intellectual aspects of self (Multiples). Juni: Can you elaborate further on this with regard to OCD and how it might be possible to get the parts "back in communication" again? MEntity: The breakdown in physiological aspects of the self has to do with the preoccupation with the idea that nearly every single thing one does has a direct and relevant effect upon something else. It is a distraction with absolute control. It develops out of the sense that one is directly responsible for everything in some way. In many cases of "OCD," there was a point in the 2nd Internal Monad where the psyche drew a connection between a terrible thing and a reckless action. MEntity: That reckless action could have been anything, and often it is a completely unrelated and irrelevant action. MEntity: So the body and personality begin to breakdown the sense of cohesive picture of the actions in the life. To manage one part of the life, action in another must be kept under control, and so on, cascading in effect across the life so that the individual is mired in meaningless and repetitive actions that act like a web woven through the life that keeps it in precarious balance. MEntity: To bring these aspects back into cohesion would depend on the extent to which there is fracture. MEntity: For clinical OCD, intervention is often required, with a retraining of the mind and actions so that one can learn that life is not precariously held in balance by these repetitive and consuming actions. MEntity: For milder cases of OCD, it can be a matter of asking for help from a loved one, and making the effort. The help would come in the form of the loved one playing a trusted, but random force in the life. He or she would alter or interrupt patterns, and the one with OCD would do his or her best to LIVE THROUGH IT. MEntity: This is a highly simplistic description of the process, but over time, after one lives through a rearranged towel rack, a messy book shelf, and unmade bed, or had their hand washing, counting, tapping, etc. interrupted enough, the body begins to return to a state of cohesion. MEntity: Again, this is a subject that may require a more dedicated format, but this is our response in this limited format. 02:14:23 PM brian: Hi Michael. How can one create an effective anchor to ground themselves during anxiety or stress? MEntity: There are two ways to do so, Brianinternally and/or externally. It would always do one well to nurture the internal grounding, first, considering that external forms are not always accessible, but it is helpful to identify external forces for grounding that one can use for support. MEntity: Internal grounding methods to counter stress and anxiety would vary from individual to individual, but one can turn to the Attitude for help in determining methods for help with anxiety and stress. MEntity: When one is anxious or stressed, it is often a result of falling into the negative pole of one's Attitude. MEntity: The key to grounding for recovery from that stress and anxiety can come from the positive pole of the partner Attitude. brian: How might that work for the Pragmatist? MEntity: For example, the Spiritualist has fallen into BELIEF. Anxiety can come from deciding what is true over knowing what is true. When one decides what is true without knowing what is true, it can be quite precarious in terms of anxiety and stress. To help the person in BELIEF to move back into VERIFICATION, the use of TRANQUILITY (the positive pole of Stoic) can be key. MEntity: Internal Tranquility can come in the form of conscious breath, stopping all action, closing the eyes, and visualizing flying or floating. External Tranquility can come in the form of a bath, a conscious shower, with the flow of water moving over the body coming into focus to help dissolve the hardened beliefs that are causing stress. MEntity: Then the Spiritualist can ask himself or herself again, "is this really true, or do I just think it is?" MEntity: From that grounded space, Verification can come. MEntity: In a more dedicated format, we can go through all of the Attitudes to offer suggestions, but this is the general idea. Each of you can come up with creative ways to exemplify what it would mean for you to internally and externally use the Positive Pole of the partner Attitude as a suggestion for how to ground yourself from stress and anxiety. MEntity: Look at that partner Positive Pole and ask yourself what it would mean for that to be implemented internally and externally. We trust your creative ideas would help you to find what works for you. 02:30:24 PM DianeHB: Hi Michael, could you elaborate on the Mercurial Body Type Health like you did for Kurtis? MEntity: In much the same way that the Martial Body Type reflects an immediate translation of action/movement into form in the body, the Mercurial Body Type can reflect immediate translation of idea/intellect into form in the body. The Mercurial Body Type health correlates to the Thyroid, and is a communication system throughout the body, since the Thyroid regulates key hormones that relate to brain chemistry. MEntity: For those with Mercurial Body Types of Health, it will be vital to these bodies to always express ideas, to communicate and share and exchange in ways that are not just to satisfy the personality, but to keep the body healthy. Mercurial Body Types are highly susceptible to degradation of health if expression is blocked, ignored, or distorted by misunderstanding or lack of capacity to be clear. MEntity: Mercurial Body Types must keep the ideas and thoughts flowing in and out of the brain in a way that is as vital to that individual as the flow of blood in and out of the heart. MEntity: For those who suffer from an imbalance of the Thyroid, it is often reflective of an imbalance in the life regarding lack of permission for expression, or lack of stimuli for ideas, or panicked and over-eager, hyperactive processes that cannot be expressed well. MEntity: The Thyroid regulates key hormones relative how the brain uses these, which are adrenaline, ephinephrine, and dopamine, so when these are out of balance, the body can start to take on weight alterations that reflect the weight of thoughts, ideas, expressions that are not moved out of the body. MEntity: We will conclude here for tonight. We know that we can only respond briefly to some of your questions that are quite broad, or requiring further exploration, so consider these responses as invitations for further exchange, and not as conclusive responses. MEntity: Good evening to each of you.
  12. Open Floor Session -- October 4, 2015 [MEntity] We are here, now. Hello to each of you. We can begin now. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN Yes, Kurtis. And hello to you. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, :). I'd like to continue as in last time with how the Stoic appears/acts in social situations. [MEntity] The Stoic shows up in social situations as fairly unflinching, unsurprised, and sometimes uninterested. The Stoic has a built-in capacity for slowing down processes so that reactions are either evaded or diminished in a way that does not betray those processes underneath the surface. In the Positive Pole, the Stoic can seem cool-headed, attentive, and informed, but without the biases and reactionary prejudices that might often dictate the perceptions and behaviors of others. In the Negative Pole, the Stoic can come across as tedious, lacking passion and interest, lacking attention, and generally difficult to communicate with. The difference between Tranquility and Resignation is fairly clear and distinct in the social situation. The Positive Pole Stoic could be described as being calmly present, whereas the negative pole may be described as defeated distraction. For the positive pole Stoic, even when there is little expression and reaction, there is an aliveness, but when the Stoic is in the negative pole, there is a draining effect that can be felt by those around her. [Kurtis] Thanks M. :) [Rachel_L] Hi Michael, can you please explain Floating Mate Agreements? You told me in a session: “When one is not sure of one's sexuality, the Agreements "float" between genders of the same Role so that one or the other may be accessible. This is not a complicated arrangement. It is actually more often the case than not, even for those with quite decided sexuality. For every Mate Agreement we tend to describe, we are often describing the potential in terms of any gender, though one will tend to stand out, depending on the momentum. We can explain how this works in further exchanges with you and our students.” [MEntity] Yes, Rachel. Agreements are non-binding, and are quite often more about the facilitating of experience than about the participants. The participants are still important, and there are some key experiences looked for with specific fragments, but, in general, Agreements are about the experience. This means that, while one may have a Mate Agreement, and even if that Mate Agreement is fairly certain with a specific fragment, that Agreement can shift from that specific fragment to another. The experience of matedness is the key here, and even if there is a preference for a specific fragment, Personality and Essence learn very quickly that life is far too random and chaotic to enforce some strict standard for fulfilling Agreements. By "chaotic and random" we mean that it is unpredictable, not that there is no awesome order to it at all. So a "floating" Mate Agreement could be understood as an experience one wishes to have, but are open to this being with whomever is best suited for the details of that Agreement. If you were to decide to experiment with sexuality, but all of your Agreements were static and locked in with a gender of no interest, it would make for quite difficult experimentation or realizations. Essence will always prefer open-ended probabilities than any static or enforced restriction. There is an irony here in that as your Essence grows older, it is capable of making better and better plans for a lifetime so that what is planned actually unfolds as planned, but as Essence becomes more adept at this skill and art, the interest in any strict planning fades. Part of the reason for this greater flexibility is because your Essence is now close to many many other fragments, so the trust is there for many to fulfill Agreements. If a Mate Agreement is sought, it is the context and experience of a Mate Agreement that matters more than whether it is with one person over another. By the time you are an older soul, for every Agreement, each has up to 12 "backups" set up across the planet or time to help ensure the fulfillment. [JanaK] Is there a correlation between complementary focused/creative energy ratios and relationship chemistry? If yes, can you briefly comment on this, please? [MEntity] Oh, yes. Those who share one higher ratio over another tend to lean toward greater common ground, common perspectives, common experiences, and depending on where one is with himself or herself, there is either a great bonding in this commonality, or there is very little charge because one or both still need to be challenged and provoked and healed. Those who are opposite in ratio can tend to find the greatest attraction, charge, and excitement for one another because of the challenges, differences, and complementing of processes, and depending on where one is with himself or herself, there is either this exciting and provocative dance, or there is never-ending conflict, combativeness, and intensity that usually requires separation from one another to fully process. This is why Task Companions tend toward similar ratios, whereas Essence Twins are exactly reversed. Keep in mind that choices, imprinting, and culture can have great influence on this inner design, so this response is a means to understand the dynamic, but we caution against drawing conclusions without experience. [JanaK] Interesting, thank you [MEntity] In other words, those who share similar ratios can still have great sex lives and excitement, and those who have reversed ratios can be profoundly intimate without sexual tension or intensity. [Maureen] Michael, I would like to know more about the effects of drugs, specifically morphine, on one's perceptions. For reference, I'll use myself as an example. Please answer in any way that is fitting for today's session's time and venue. I've been on morphine twice this year - post surgeries. Both times I experienced hallucinations. The first time it was with images of people being around me in the room or wherever I was imagining myself to be. This last time post surgery (last week) I literally “saw” words as if they had just been typed out in phrases. I was seeing full concepts or phrases of my own, and then in my mind's eye, I matched them up, or ordered them, neatly, with a perfectly corresponding concept or phrase from “the world”. This went on for 100s of patterns, each neatly repeating itself as the next concept or phrase came up. It was almost mesmerizing until I realized I was tired, and there seemed to be no end to this pattern making, and I wanted it to stop. Then I realized it was happening because of the morphine. I didn't like the feeling of being drugged and being on this weird pattern treadmill even though it felt like little "AHAs" were made each time a pattern was made evident. [MEntity] The effects of morphine, and most opiates, is one that frees the neurological processes from pain. When that effect is in place, a great range of possibilities are in place for changes in perspective, from clarity of insight to complete distortion of reality. Depending on dosage, usage, addiction, etc., the effects may move from enlightening to devastating. What each person experiences may be different, but the common denominator would be in this freeing up from neurological processes that usually manage and monitor pain. When neurological pathways are suddenly free, if you will, they can find they are processing differently or different data. What you experienced seems to us to have been a slowing down and a more conscious access to how you think and process already. Your mind races with how to make sense of things, how to find or create patterns, whether there are any inherent patterns, or not. It is a beautiful and exhausting process, and you had a chance to see how do this on levels usually too swift for conscious awareness. It is how you "know" even when you seem to have no logical reason to know, but also why you may "know" even when you are lacking in accuracy. This experience can be referenced as a way to keep from being too unquestioning in your "knowing," because some of the processes are artistic and based on habit, rather than on stringing together true insight or knowing. But it can also be referenced as a way for you to access when you do question, so that you use a similar, more conscious technique for assessment. In other words, it is Good Work to trust your knowing, and now you know how it works beneath the surface, but if you ever question it, you can invite the process back into consciousness and play with the stringing together or words to see what you get. [Maureen] Thanks, Michael. [MEntity] As for the individuals around you, these may have been more literal in that your consciousness was shifted enough to perceive the presence of actual forms around you. We can elaborate upon this in more detail with you in further exchanges. [Royce] Hey michael. so i watch iyanla a lot and her method of healing usually includes the participants' complete and total breakdown, tears on floor messiness before they can heal towards an issue they are facing. I notice i never really GET to that point with much and often fear i'm not looking deep enough because i don't reach that breaking point. If it IS a necessary stage of healing, how might one easier tap into one's hidden NERVE that opens the valve to tear wrenching truths? because I feel like i'm pretty good at being honest, but i'm not great at letting my whole body experience that honesty as much* [MEntity] Royce, you do not resist much truth. You may be slow to reflect those truths, to express those truths with confidence, but we do not see you as resisting truths. Those who resist truths tend to require breakdowns and more dramatic turning points, whereas the older soul's most "dramatic" struggle with truth is a heavy sigh and/or rolling of the eyes. The older soul Personality has to work too hard to avoid truth, and tends to find it much easier to accept it. This is not said to diminish the process, but to point out that it is different. It is okay to simply work out the truth, and then work with the truth, rather than resisting the truth to the point of breakdown. If you require a breakdown, however, you will have it. It is not something you must worry about cultivating. To aim for breakdown as a solution or a sign is an aim away from the truth. [Royce] thank you michael. that makes sense. i notice even in my grieving there isn't a lot of crying, but there is understanding. so from this I can sort of take away that that quieter grieving is not off track. thank you [PeterK] When asking about a particular person, including oneself, is it helpful to provide you with a photograph of that person? If so, why is it helpful and what qualities or characteristics of the photograph are most important? [MEntity] We cannot see you, so we do not require photos. Photographs are for the channel, not us. For some channels, the requirement of photos helps to alleviate two concerns: that there is a real person to focus on, and not just a fake name, and it helps the individual to launch into access to us via his or her own trusted intuition. Depending on the extent of the concern and the extent of the dependency upon individual intuition, access to us actually diminishes more with the use of photos. Photos, to us, are very much like names. They are convenient references, but tell us little about you other than one moment's snapshot of you. We find names useless for us, but they are important for the organization of presentation to use via the channel, and photos can be used in a similar way, as well. Names are functional and practical for our communication, but photos are solely for the channel. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
