I went through the Energy Reports to look at Nexuses since Dec 21 2012, when we officially moved into the Mature Soul Age. I summarized each one in my own words, but you can just go to each Energy Report post in the transcripts and see what was written if you'd like. I hope this sparks some understanding of the world in the last few years. It's very interesting to see how each Nexus builds up into the next. Try not to think of them as separate points in time, but as a stream of energy forming or dissipating into the next- as it's a lot more entertaining to see the patterns holistically. Lastly, Michael has repeatedly iterated that the dates are approximate probabilities, not set in stone. So the actual dates for each Nexus may have been off by some days depending on the timing of our personal and collective choices. 2012 (Based on events, my guess is this was a year of Collective Expectation) --- Dec 21= DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Realities branch and merge because of various beliefs and theories about shifts, destruction, ascension etc. that emphasize our Anxious Uncertainty and whether this will be met with Reaction or Response. 2013 (Based on events, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Freedom) --- Jan 5-8= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch that either emphasize and amplify Collective Stubbornness, especially in Politics & International Events- or free themselves from that to move on. Feb 11-15= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Flow. Realities branch that either resign to -Inertia, or actively contribute to collective redirection. Around this period, it’s especially inspiring and motivating to create structures that increase our capacity for peace, calm, abundance and +Freedom. Mar 15= DIVERGENCE: Same as the February Divergence, but with more resistance to being responsible for the Flow of our life. - Jun 14-16= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels merge due to a rise of consciousness among all of them that are aiming to represent one’s Personality more confidently in the world. This Nexus merges several branches from our past that resigned from their Power and hid themselves from scrutiny, rejection, failure etc. but have now accepted their Empowerment, bringing a mix of grief, anguish, struggle, insight, motivation and excitement. - Aug 2-5= DIVERGENCE: Versions of us “peel away” from this reality to focus on their collapsing, ignored, rejected or eclipsed Ideals. Aug 28-31= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Resolution. A spontaneous branching for the Collective to focus on various ideals and responsibilities still unresolved in Politics. On the Personal Level, this brings apocalyptic, disastrous or disturbing imagery through dreams as we are “weeding out” the worst-case scenarios for how these world issues could be tackled. - Oct 17-21= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels branch off to focus on strikingly different versions of our future Global Economy. This then pivots us all towards more of a Debt-based Economy, or a Resource-based Economy. Nov 9-11= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. A Reunion of Parallels where we or significant others passed away. This brings dreams in that recall vague, strange variations of our life/experiences that came from other parallels where we or our loved ones, animal companions or people from our past actually died. Dec 1-3= MINI CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. A Nexus that merges any parallel versions of us/others that died over the past few months. Dec 15-19= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Acceleration. A branching into 2014’s Intellectual Priest in Growth energy, or not. If there’s a rapid amplification into a strong whirlwind of activities & effort emphasizing renewed enthusiasm for your intentions, projects and tasks for 2014 then this would’ve occurred. Otherwise, these last 2 Weeks of 2013 would be more calming and recuperative before the coming January Nexus. 2014 (Based on events, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Healing) --- Jan 6-8= DIVERGENCE: Parallels split that will most strongly or weakly emphasize the core themes of 2014- bringing more focus and footing to our Intentions. Feb 12-15= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Relating. Parallels “here” that are working on growing closer to tentative relationships & dropping barriers/inhibitions in the process, merge with those realities that have already done so. Mar 29-31= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge that wish to bring focus back to projects, plans, future anticipations and coordination through Cooperation and Community. - Apr 5-9= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge that branched off as far back as Childhood. This may cause dreams to come up bringing back nostalgic symbols/memories from our childhood and any past lives resonating with that. May 17-19: CONVERGENCE: Themed in Turning Points. A subtle or obvious haunting, distracting sense that how we’re doing things may need to change- merging us into parallels where we are already doing things that matter more to us. Jun 3-8= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Efficiency. Those involved in this nexus branch off parts of themselves not willing to participate in/contribute to the changes needed to create new paths for their life. This brings a sharp halt to those that see their ideas for change would simply not work, so they then clean out their mind/heart of these attachments. - Aug 25-30= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels that have similar realizations about Global or Environmental Conflicts now merge. On a smaller scale, versions of us that are exploring internal conflicts & indecisiveness about commitments/directions now shift to either a conscious choice toward personal/global fulfillment or a needed breakdown & rebuilding. *A branch of realities from the Mid-Late 1700s CE where the US wasn’t founded and wide-scale religious, political and military oppression ensued across the globe for the last 200 years, now merge with ours- as they have gone through uprisings since the 1980s against this to establish a constitution that is now birthing the US in 2014 “there”. This will either lead the US out of its seat of power for the next 20-50 years, or escalate it into a heightened position beyond all comprehension. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Private Session by Maureen. Uma explored this more.) - Oct 28-31= DIVERGENCE: Permanently-wounded aspects of us that refuse to allow Healing branch off, freeing those that are willing to heal to feel relief. Nov 26= CONVERGENCE: Versions of us that are willing to Heal now merge, bringing gratitude, appreciation and comfort that can bring more relief, confidence and trust again. Dec 11-13= CONVERGENCE: More parallels and people that have brought wounding to the surface come together to Heal anything from across 2014. Waves of creative solutions and resources now emerge to facilitate this personal and social healing. 2015 (Based on events, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Peace) --- Feb 25-28= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch based on choices toward -Subservience or +Devotion. This focuses us on healing parts of our life left in broken circuits, or brings out realizations of anything missing that could replenish our Submission. Mar 20-23= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A Reunion of parallels from 1999 over the Fear of Technology. They explored moving away from technology, then cleared up these fears & returned trust in it, merging with us. This Nexus then explores how technological impact is accelerating & how we need to either take breaks from it to return balance, or transform isolating technologies into more meaningful and intimate ones. - Apr 18-20= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A Reunion of parallels from 2002 around Overreactions/Phobias that veered toward Full-scale War- but then brought focus back toward greater peace, merging with our Parallels that have secured that (even with clear growing pains). Jun 20-23= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Realities branch based on our reactions to Surprises happening through the month that bring shock or understanding. *In some parallels, Earthquakes happened in the Pacific Rim and New Madrid Fault. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Ask M Transcript.) - Jul 20-23= CONVERGENCE: June’s divergence separated parallels creating war/oppression from parallels creating equality/inclusion. This Nexus then brings all realities in that are actively evolving & exploring Equality, Inclusion, Empathy and Compassion. Aug 14= CONVERGENCE: Straggling Parallels of versions of us that gave up/stopped trying because of hardships/obstacles/struggles now return because they’ve worked on Healing. As such, we feel our sense of effort, enthusiasm and energy amplify now. Sep 14= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge for those who explored isolation, separation, lack of intimacy/community etc. This Nexus then brings heightened efforts to nurture and sustain common ground, intimacy and resonance. On larger scales, this shift relates issues of immigration, borders and equality. - Oct 18= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch to bring Shifts in Power among countries. Nov 22-23= DIVERGENCE: Realities that are concerned with the balance of Practical Reality with Fantasy/Illusion, or an extreme entrenching in one or the other now branch off. For most older souls, this was a reality check nexus that could be used to practically nurture or plant our fantasies into reality. Dec 25-28= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch to explore dreaded or anticipated versions of the Future, through choices of self-nurturing or self-preservation. 2016 (A Year of Global Turning Points themed in Collective Realization [Confirmation]) --- Jan 10-15= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. Similar parallels reunite where certain fragments just died vs had died some time ago. Most who die in the next 3 Months are in final closure of all their parallels. Feb 8-17= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A Planetary Shift of parallels to more Peaceful and Humanitarian Paths, more Turbulent and Disruptive Paths, or more of “The Same”. This Nexus feels like letting go of directions you’re no longer interested in, and a renewed conscious focus on what you are. Mar 19= MINI DIVERGENCE: A possible shift related to events caused by a high-profile event or person representing the force of a population/collective. If it occurred, it would narrow paths forward. - Apr 22-29= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A previous Energy Shift on April 16-19 that emphasized Power Struggles & made us see where our personal, national or global Center of Power is, may now result in a Shift in Power that closes down several potential parallels. May 30= MINI DIVERGENCE: A small but intense shift that emphasizes a major event in your individual life or on a larger-scale for the country or planet. - Jul 29= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels branch off for those that are interested in escalating toward greater War. (DanielaS received notice about the 3 Themes of Parallels that diverged from this Nexus.) Sep 26= BREAKTHROUGH: For those in a Turning Point, this Nexus emphasizes Breakthrough and leaves behind the options of Breakdown. If this shift didn't come, you may have felt a huge release from gravity to float above and be free from patterns of burden and demand to recreate yourself, refresh your perspective, bring relief from fears so you can catch your breath & take on the rest of the year with vitality, creativity and love. - Nov 7-10= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A dramatic shift to work on Collective Karmic Themes. All living on the planet are on a path that seeks to heal the world on a profound and lasting level now- though it may not look like so as the wounds have to be clearly identified and pronounced, and the creation of such peace is not always pretty. There are 2 Major Karmas being tapped into now. Younger Souls are working out Karma around choosing Collective Responsibility and Self-Discipline vs Self-Preservation and Oppression. Older Souls are working out Karma around choosing Passivity/Complacency and Convenience vs Being Awake and Taking Action to Resolve Legitimate Threats. Dec 13-21= CONVERGENCE: A slow, lengthy merging of all realities coming together on the verge of Global Revolution. 2017 (A Year of Collective Humanitarianism [This was confirmed, but I cannot find the Transcript, except for this.]) --- Jan 19-23= CONVERGENCE: Same as the December Convergence above. Feb 26-Mar 2= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A nexus bringing the first signs of Relief from recent events. It was an exit ramp for those interested in Extreme Versions of reality which removed that element from our parallels to help improve morale for those “here”. Mar 30= MINI DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off for those in our Energy Ring that are actively refusing Pleasure or Peace. - Apr 15-20= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Certain Parallels branch towards themes of War. (Note: This was explored in the Membership Gratitude Event, where Michael stated the highest probable nations that may be impacted by war were North Korea, South Korea, Russia and the USA. This involved Nuclear Weapons and Cyberattacks.) May 19-21= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A potentially Dramatic Shift to more meaningful, acceptable and inclusive negotiations among world leaders- or more turmoil, shock and extremism. - Jul 20-23= CONVERGENCE: A great clash between discordant realities arises- where how deeply you’re invested in Being Right vs Being Fair comes up, due to strong Declarations made by you and others toward one side or the other. On a Personal Scale, this shows as a strong sense you must choose between staying locked in -Subjectivity or finally embrace +Objectivity. For the Collective this divide shows up in the Political Arena. Aug 21= DIVERGENCE: Branching related to the Total Solar Eclipse that prompted unexpected effects triggering collective panic/shock or wonder/awe (especially in the US). Sep 20-23= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> More branching that shifted Parallels toward various extremes for the next 100 Years. As they split off, they acted like release valves bringing greater relief from pressure, or a continued sense of trust and calm in collective progress over collapse for our parallels “here”. - Oct 10-14= DIVERGENCE: A branching with unknown effects that were never explained. [Note from Kurtis: The #MeToo Movement exploded now.] Nov 21= CONVERGENCE: A mix of Parallels where growing fears/anxiety/uncertainty were met with successful solutions now converge, bringing a fairly pivotal time for Healing & Problem-solving that will unfold over the next 3 to 6 Months. Dec 18-22= CONVERGENCE: An unusual merging of parallels that have “failed” or “succeeded” at fulfilling key patterns share in common extremes of Climate & Power Struggles. The same conditions exist across these realities, but there are differences in the people's capacity for resolving these daunting scenarios. A wave of “refugee” parallels that moved into hopelessness were integrating into our reality to seek help & this brought a sobering vision & awareness of the larger-scale issues for those who had been ignoring reality. 2018 (A Year of Collective Revolution [Confirmation by Kurtis]) --- Dec 23 2017 - Jul 11 2018= NEXUS BUBBLE: What is a Nexus Bubble? Michael says that Nexuses are like collective synaptic pathways for the mind of Human Sentience to explore various realities. Normally, Nexuses are generated by currents of thought, emotion and action branching off to explore incompatible interests that can no longer exist in the same reality, or merging in to combine strengths into the same reality. Sometimes however, a Nexus Bubble develops where this usual flow of branching and merging is stopped. This is similar to a synaptic cell being unable to pass its information and neurotransmitters onto the next cell. Whatever is generated as a thought, emotion or action is unable to go anywhere and has to be managed within. Why does a Nexus Bubble happen? This happens when the karmic and self-karmic themes Humanity is exploring become so heavy they weigh humanity down and have to be addressed. During this time then, we were forced to deal with the karma and self-karma of Perpetuating and Tolerating Intentional Violence, until everyone could see it was a clear problem. During a Nexus Bubble, any sense of personal reality is flipped upside down so we have to directly deal with the collective reality we all exist in. Nexus Bubbles tend to occur during a monumental Paradigm Shift from one Soul Age to another, as there is a pivotal lesson learnt at these times that changes the course of life forever. (You can explore this in the Nexus Bubble Transcript) February 14-March 24= SIGNIFICANT EVENT: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> The month of March marked when the Nexus Bubble really kicked in. During this time, in response to the Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting in Parkland; Florida, the March for our Lives Movement arose. This was a tipping point in Gun Control that generated increased awareness of our addiction to violence and need to participate in politics. March marks when Humanity began to realize that we are all A PART OF LIFE, and that the idea that we all have separate personal lives is an illusion. As such we faced the fear that we can't divide, separate, escape, compartmentalize ourselves from the world- and realized a deep truth that we are all interconnected and always will be. Through this, Humanity is en route to generating a reality of GLOBAL UNITY, but this will play out in both negative and positive ways. - July 12-21= NEXUS BUBBLE COLLAPSES, bringing DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This Nexus was characterized by a strong sense of acceleration, intensity and escalation. The Divergence was focused on a Liberation of incompatible & disparate parts of everyone that were bottled up in the same reality throughout the Nexus Bubble. The Convergence was focused on various parallels of us Listening to our Core Voice- cutting off or through all the noisy bullshit voices around & inside us to hear at least one voice within or around that says we matter to & in this world. (Three Private Sessions talked about this: JanetH, Dawn and Becca.) Aug 25-27= CONVERGENCE: Parallels that each see "Strength in Numbers" and are willing to address, shift and resolve the looming potential of war & great conflict now merge. This marks a rise in serious awareness & consideration of the Reality of War, as Humanity comes to shift away from Young Soul ideas of Growing through Conflict, and into Mature Soul ideas of Growing through Compassion. September 25-27= DIVERGENCE: Sudden and solid obstacles came up that needed immediate solutions. The more one was locked into Dogma, the harder the path to solutions was for the Personality, Community or Planet. - November 5-11= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels diverge based on the US Midterms turnout towards True Leadership or True Dictatorship. The latter spin off to explore a morbid curiosity for and apathy to a 5 Year descent into Unimaginable Dystopia. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Private Session by Janet.) December 31-January 3= CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together to Heal and Recover. (Additional info was added on here thanks to DianeHB.) 2019 (A Year of Collective Empowerment [Confirmation by Rosario]) --- March 1-5= DIVERGENCE: Parallels spin off to explore various "worst-case scenarios". - April 19-22= CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together with a focus on the Cleanup and Sorting through of one’s house, relationships, mind etc. May 18-21= CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together to focus on True Grounding through a growing sense of emotional peace and sanctuary that is done with old problems, and ready to embrace new power and pleasure through revitalizing social connections. June 21= CONVERGENCE= We're merging with parallels that have increased inspiring actions in their lives and world towards renewed paths of enthusiasm for a better future- because they've committed to Participating in their lives, and now we are too. - Sep 19-21= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A major nexus to shift the world towards or away from Self-Destruction. If the shift is towards, it would be quite obvious. If it is away, then it would either show up as a quiet period, or a profoundly meaningful and moving event. - October 23-27= CONVERGENCE: This is another shift away from Self-Destruction, or a point in time in which those self-destructing can get a clearer understanding of it. November 25-27= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This is another shift away from Self-Destruction, and a point in time where Baby & Young Soul leaders self-destructing become more apparent. It marks the "beginning of the end" for Authoritarians who can no longer hold power in the Mature Soul Paradigm. This brings a new wave of levity, clarity, focus and enthusiasm for our future. December 21-27= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This is an Infinite Soul check-in that moves parallels towards or away from Infinite Soul Manifestation. Those moving towards are diving into self-destruction and further wounding; while those moving away are committed to collective evolution and healing. 2020 (A Year of Global Turning Points themed in Collective Participation [Confirmed by Bogi]) --- January 20-23= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A Reunion of parallels from 1980 where the Mount Saint Helens Eruption was much worse, throwing the world into more devastating climate changes. This launched a wave of Climate Awareness that grew into Climate Action movements. A significant 2016 Election of Donald Trump still took place, but the parallels were unable to fully merge into us until we gathered the same amount of Climate Change action demands. This merging brought a wave of vision and inspiration for tackling the Climate Crisis, as these other parallels realized that while Humanity cannot control nature, we can control our effects on nature. February 28-29= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A branch based on the collective response to an ultimatum and/or threat that brings clarity and focus. This launches an exploration of different outcomes for each over the next 5 to 10 years. [Note from Kurtis: This was a rather significant nexus wrapping up the US Primary Elections for Presidency; the Covid-19 Pandemic; and the potential for Infinite Soul Manifestation, such as based on Trump's threats for War with Iran.] - February - July NEXUS BUBBLE Another Nexus Bubble based on helping Humanity tackle its addiction to violence, and the Great Pause generated by the Covid-19 Pandemic. The whole world moved into a lockdown over March and April, and the Pandemic marked the first event shared by every Human on Earth at the same time. The Month of May marks the Month when the Nexus Bubble really set in. May 25-June 7= SIGNIFICANT EVENT= MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> At the end of May during the Nexus Bubble, the Death of George Floyd (a Black man unjustly killed by a White police officer) inspired a massive global wave of protests calling for Truth and Accountability by "Black Lives Matter". In the June Energy Report, this was noted to be an event that everyone in the future looks back on as a movement that changed everything. The event marks the first Breakthrough for all People of Color towards living in social and economic safety. - July 20-22= CONVERGENCE: This Convergence was noted as a potential and not a guaranteed nexus, based on whether we made progress towards collective healing, recovery and improvement like other parallels already had. In the August Energy Report, it's noted we successfully managed the Convergence. It brought seeds of inspiration and shifted us from using anger as fuel to power as motivation. It would have marked another significant Turning Point for Humanity, but its potential broke down as people were more exhausted than expected, opting to make change in smaller circles closer to home instead of on the global scale. If the Nexus had not occurred, it would have been a period for honestly addressing the issues we haven't collectively faced. - November 12-15= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This was an enormous Divergence. Michael notes it brought shifts towards or away from Climate Change Responsibility and Infinite Soul Activations for teaching the Logos. This would be responded to with either a heavy weight or a deep resolve of presence and empowerment. Branches based on the US Election moved towards Donald Trump being re-elected, not re-elected, or the election being derailed by Civil War. Due to massive youth and people of colour turnout at the polls, we landed in the "Trump not re-elected" parallels, and incidentally with a rather interesting predicament where the Democrats had a chance at narrowly winning the Senate in Georgia. Another major branch took place shortly after, between moving towards or away from an Escalating Pandemic and the Infinite Soul Manifestation. We landed in the Escalating Pandemic & Infinite Soul Manifesting trajectory. BeccatheStudent recieved that the IS is not manifesting for Intervention as it usually would, but for Anchoring. This is further explored in the 2021 State of the Planet, which shares that the IS is manifesting as a reflection of Humanity's readiness to save itself by no longer tolerating inhumanity. 2021 (A Year of Collective Caring) --- n/a (Note: January 6th and following days was a significant event based upon the Capitol Riots by White Supremacists. These occurred shortly after amazing coordination in Georgia for increasing voter turnout, led to the Democrats winning the Senate runoff elections. -> March is noted as the next possible shift.)
Janet posted a topic in 2018 Michael SpeaksJanuary 28, 2018 Note: Today's questions were pulled from Feedback Request: State of the Planet 2018. The questions were collected into a document, sorted into similar questions, and ultimately some were modified and combined based on Michael's initial statement. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Janet: Michael, do you have an opening statement or should I post the first of our questions? MEntity: Though Troy had his own idea for a more coordinated and organized presentation of our information regarding "the state of the planet," we are quite comfortable with the organic unfolding of insight and information from your questions. We will start with a statement first, of course. Most years come and go and contribute to the myriad paths that Sentience will take in its exploration of consciousness and creativity. Some years become the result of a trajectory of patterns that create what we refer to as a SEQUENCE. A Sequence is a strong trajectory created from cumulative effects of choices leading up to the Sequence. A Sequence still has a great deal of variation and variables, but far fewer than before. If a Sequence is left on its trajectory, it will lock into what we refer to as a VECTOR. A Vector is the highest probability for a certain direction or outcome or result. Think of it this way: If a car is driving at 25 kilometers per hour and headed toward a wall 20 kilometers away, there is a great deal of choice and variables remaining that could steer the car from hitting the wall. If the car is going 75 kilometers an hour toward a wall that is 1 kilometer away, it is similar to a Sequence and while there are plenty of chances for redirection from the wall, but many choices will still lead to a crash. If a car is driving at 100 kilometers per hour and 100 meters from wall, it is fairly certain to be on Vector for a crash. 2018 is a Sequence year. There is too much force and momentum of trajectory for it to be "just another year." It is directly aiming for several "walls." This is not as ominous as it may sound. It is growing pains. 2018 brings with it a State of the Planet that is leading toward global unification, "one way or the other." The Mature Soul Age is here. And the ideals of the Mature Soul will be implemented in ways that start from the Negative Pole. This means that unification could come in the form of a common enemy, common challenge, common crisis, common ground, common enlightenment, etc. At this point the patterns seem to point to common enemy or crisis because drama is deeply appealing to Mature Souls. The State of the Planet at this point is all about this negotiation toward what would bring the greatest commonality. Even if that commonality is forced or false. In a Young Soul world, any forced or false commonality falls apart when patterns return to "normal." A tornado destroys a town and it comes together like never seen before. Rebuilding completes and the bonds dissipate. A progressive President is elected to represent common leaps of evolution and acceptance but it all falls apart once the symbol is out of sight. In a Mature Soul world, forced or false commonality are given far more consideration. So even as 2018 may begin to reveal forced or false commonality, it is something that can be built upon, and not just a placating and fleeting state. Building upon the Turning Points of 2016, the "walls" toward which humanity is "driving" at such high speed are the walls of Energy Resource, Consumption, Waste Management, Climate and Environment, Information Management, Social Intelligence, and Diet. Each of these categories have a "wall" that will be hit in 2020. 2018 and 2019 are the Sequence years that will determine the 2020 Vector. This is not a doomsday scenario we describe, and your 2018 and 2019 and 2020 may look like any other year at the time, but they look different from the future. They are the years that made the difference. We will open the floor now to our students, beginning with Janet, and cover as much as we can. We will likely explore this broad subject of "The State of the Planet" in two parts. *****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN***** Janet: Michael, I have the list of all questions at the moment. First, can you speak to the current probability for the Infinite Soul manifestation in or around 2020 and are there any Transcendental Souls preparing the way that you could point out? MEntity: The current probability is at 68%. The Transcendental Souls are all in play and at work across the globe. We will compile a list for Troy of known Transcendental Souls that can be validated, but there are many who will remain unnamed or difficult to identify. For this Manifestation, the Transcendental Souls clearing the path are working in smaller pockets to bring the deep social change rather than taking on larger populations. They are using different tactics than in the past. There is no need for grand stages that get one voice out to the masses. This time there is no need for that because there is a social and technological network in place that can allow the influence of one voice to become the voice of many. That being said, we will point to those we can identify for our students. Troy will need a different focus for that delivery. Janet: Because people are questioning this in the peanut gallery: can we confirm that the probability is in fact lower than previously given? And here is the next question: What type of ‘common enemy or crisis’ would be possible? Contact from non-terrestrials? Major climate-related events? Notable astronomical and/or astrological events? Nuclear events or wide-spread war? Global impact of a major medical event (e.g., catastrophic flu)? MEntity: It does fluctuate. It is lower at the moment. Until it is 100% it is not 100%. The top 5 common enemy or crisis scenarios are in no particular order: CLIMATE - food shortages, diseased supplies, drought, fire, flood, extreme weather, heat waves, water shortages, etc. WAR - Russia successfully exploits the weaknesses and fears of tyrannical or trusting nations. NON-TERRESTRIAL EVENT - discovery and proof of non-terrestrial life; intelligent contact with non-terrestrial life; indisputable evidence of off-planet technology. POWER OUTAGE - catastrophic outages of energy supplies in the form of fuel or electricity in large geographical locations and over great lengths of time; and CRISIS OF CONSCIOUSNESS - a mass shift away from irresponsible consumption and defenses and a wave of surrender to a Greater Good. Keep in mind that this is not a time for nurturing anxiety and dread. We cannot stress enough that this sounds far more ominous than it is likely to be. Regardless of these "walls" that humanity is heading toward, you have a great deal of wisdom, creativity, experience, and maturity for how best to respond and recover. Janet: Are there differences in how the entry into the Mature Soul age appears outside the US? What can those in "safer" locations do to help support the transition from Young to Mature? (Ie: living outside the USA & East Asia, and away from those areas most prone to earthquakes, hurricanes, deadly heat waves and catastrophic crop failures). MEntity: For those ahead of the curve, so to speak, of the Mature Soul Age, there are still heavy Young Soul factors at work in local or accessible parts of the world that can be addressed. Any issues regarding inequality, exploitation, overconsumption, etc. can be addressed with a focus on continued progress and evolution. Any efforts to improve community, resources, education, etc can simply be continuations of what is already in place. There will be world events that touch even the best-case scenarios of community and country, but beyond that, it will always contribute to planetary and sentient progress however local your efforts. In other words, regardless of how comparatively "better" your area of the world may be, the world is no longer able to sustain isolated worlds within the world. Even the most progressive and safe and sound of countries will be contributing to the anchoring of harmony through either nurturing what is already in play, or by tending to blind spots and issues that can easily be missed with "life is good." Janet: What role is China playing in the shift to a global Mature paradigm? Is there any chance of substantial social reform in its near future? MEntity: Social reform will happen. It is at a 98% probability at this point that a Young Soul paradigm will be in full force within 25 years, giving rise to great shifts away from Baby Soul values and repression and toward a rise in independence, feminism, creativity, innovation, etc. Many Young Souls have gathered in China and the Baby Soul culture simply cannot remain sustained. The deep imprinting of respect for history and elders will help the transition to be more gentle and subtle over time than as an uprising. Young Souls in power individually or on a small scale can often wreak havoc, but Young Souls in power as a group and on a larger scale can bring out the best of Young Soul qualities. There will always be Positive and Negative Poles, of course. In a Mature Soul paradigm, there is even greater likelihood of the best qualities implemented. For example, a reckless corporation can easily continue to be reckless in a Young Soul paradigm even if the corporation provides services and goods that are popular and necessary. In a Mature Soul world that same corporation can still provide services and goods that are popular and necessary but there is a level of social awareness infrastructure that can make or break a business if it does not consider the consequences of its actions. So Young Souls can still be competitive but compete for patrons who support better quality of life actions. This would be true of superpowers that are coming from Young Souls. So to answer your question, China could easily set the standard for how best to serve its people quality of life and this would satisfy the competitive edge and still participate in and support the Mature Soul shift. Janet: Will there be any breakthroughs in the next few years, or at least movement toward a breakthrough, in terms of how we handle our garbage? MEntity: Yes. It is inevitable at this point if humanity remains on track for unity. There are several solutions at work to be posed for wide-scale use on current masses of waste, but the most effective and lasting solutions are likely going to be a combination of reduced waste through better packaging and enhanced recycling processes that use "everything" and put all waste back into the system. There are small-scale working prototype cities at work that already successfully eliminate all waste in terms of necessity for discarding and storing, and returning all waste back into the system where it can be used again. This practice is more in keeping with "nature" and how forests work, for example. People are not forests, of course, so they will require a different kind of ecosystem. In the past, it was assumed that people could simply count on the ecosystems of other life forms to take care of human waste. That is not possible for any great length time. In a Mature Soul world, the necessity for Humans to own the responsibility and processes of the Human ecosystem comes into focus. It is often thought that it is more "natural" to exist within and participate with the ecosystems of Earth along with other creatures and living things, but Humans (sentience) are a different system. Sentience must, eventually, own its position of responsibility for itself within the greater ecosystem, and move away from dependence upon it. That is the way of the Mature and Old Soul. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. We will elaborate further on the State of the Planet either in the format Troy has suggested to us, or through your continued Energy Reports. We have much to say about the years ahead, but there is no urgency or emergency. Goodbye, for now.
