Bobby posted a topic in 2018 Michael SpeaksMichael Speaks - September 23, 2018 - Advanced Casting MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We understand a topic is to be posed so we invite your question now. Janet: In response to a question about casting in a 2008 session that discussed the practical use of Overleaves, you said: Janet: MEntity: We will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored…. Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. Janet: Please provide a topic-length discussion of casting based on these comments you made earlier. MEntity: We will begin. It will be helpful for our students who already know their Casting Positions, Cadence Number, and Entity Number, but if you do not know these at the moment, they can be discerned over time and with study, or requested through our channels. In our system, Casting is a broad term to describe a relative position within a group of 7. This means that Casting can refer to your Position within your Cadence or your Cadence position within a Greater Cadence or it can mean the Entity within its group as a Cadre, or it can mean your position relative to your Traveling Companions/Essence Twin. In most instances when "Casting" is referenced, it refers to one's Position within one's Cadence. A Cadence is a specific grouping of 7. Cadence can refer to the smallest grouping of a Role within an Entity, or it can refer to the Cadence that is the group of Traveling Companions/Essence Twins across a Cadre. For example, the first-cast fragment of the first Entity in a Cadre is mathematically bonded to the first-cast fragment of every other Entity in that Cadre. That "Cadence" is a Cadence of Traveling Companions, with most paired up as Essence Twins. However, "Cadence" is most often used to refer to the specific group of 7 fragments of the same Role within an Entity. We share the information above because we wish for you to know the broader uses of the terms, even as they are more often used to refer to one thing over another. For today's elaboration on Casting, we will be focused on the more common uses of the terms. One of the reasons for the request for elaboration on this subject of Casting to explore how these factors that are of Essence play out within your individual lives as Personality. Casting is a dynamic that is specific to Essence and does not describe any element of Personality. CORECTION: Casting is a dynamic that is specific to Essence and does not describe any element of Personality. One of the reasons for the request for elaboration on this subject of Casting is to explore how these factors might show up and be identified and useful for your individual lives as Personalities. Though Casting is specific to Essence and the relationships of Essence with other Essences, it will tend to show up in effect in some way in your individual lives, especially as you grow more aligned with and Manifest Essence through True Personality. The factors that are usually limited to the navigation and relationships of Essence then become a part of the dynamic of your daily life. Studying Casting and its energies and dynamics and relationships can bring great insight into the beautiful structures of Sentience and the cosmos, but can often be elusive in how they might serve you in your daily life. There are three Casting elements of your Essence that may have an effect in your daily life. CASTING POSITION CADENCE POSITION and ENTITY POSITION Your CASTING POSITION is the combination that you receive in your profile that describes how your Role is Cast. For example, our channel here is a Server-CAST Sage. Your Casting Position is so prominent in its effect in your life as an Essence and as Personality that it will likely show up even before your Role is clear to you. Your CASTING POSITION will continue as a powerful element of your being well into the higher planes even when your Role no longer defines you. It is not that a Sage is no longer a Sage, but in the higher planes when Cadences and Entities are merging, then a group of Sages is a group of Sages and you become more differentiated by your position within that group of Sages than by being a Sage. In your daily life, your CASTING POSITION describes how your role is EXPRESSED. It colors everything about how your Role shows up in your life, how your Essence focuses its core. This is fairly common knowledge to many of our students. Your Casting often shows up in the world even before your Role. It is often how you introduce yourself to others. For example, Sage-Cast Warrior will be a goofy and charming comic before revealing the more grounded and "serious" elements of protectiveness and loyalties. Later this same Sage-Cast Warrior will show that their Warrior-ness of loyalty and protection is expressed through knowledge and teaching in some way. We think it is archived where we have delineated all of the Roles by Casting in other exchanges. We will not do that again today, but every Role will "show up" differently, not just because of combinations of Overleaves, but because of Casting and how that Role is expressed, how that Essence reveals its core. This understanding can help you to see that you are not always going to be shining as your Role. You will often be navigating as your Casting. This can cause confusion sometimes for those self-assessing their profiles or can cause some channels who rely on their intuition to get information that is not quite accurate. The easiest way to tell the difference between your Role and your Casting in your daily life is that your Casting is how you live and your Role is how you shine. Conditions often have to coalesce into specific scenarios for your Role to truly shine, but your Casting does the daily navigation and management of the life. Every Entity is cast in a rhythm that is a count of 7. These counts of 7 are grouped into groups of 7. This continues until an Entity is "full." Another way of saying the above is that Cadences are grouped into what are often referred to Greater Cadences. Your CADENCE POSITION/NUMBER is your Cadence's relative position within a Greater Cadence. As you may already know, the 7 Roles correlate with 7 numbers/positions in this order: 1 SERVER, 2 ARTISAN, 3 WARRIOR, 4 SCHOLAR, 5 SAGE, 6 PRIEST, 7 KING. So if a Sage is in the first Cadence of a Greater Cadence of Sages, then this Sage's Cadence Position is ONE, or SERVER CADENCE. Again, this Casting has more relevant and meaningful effects as Essence relating to other Essences, but as you Manifest Essence in a lifetime, your CADENCE POSITION can show up in HOW YOU RELATE TO OTHERS. If your Cadence Number is FOUR/SCHOLAR, this means that even if you are a Sage-Cast Sage, or an Artisan-Cast Artisan, you may find yourself building relationships with others through the ways of a Scholar. Your Cadence Number can help you understand how you assess, navigate, build, dismantle, and nurture most of your relationships. There are many factors that go into the dynamics of a relationship, but as you Manifest Essence, you may find that your Cadence Number sheds some light on what is important to you and what appeals to you and what is a challenge for you based on your Cadence Position. If you know your Cadence Number/Position, reading up on the correlating Role can shed light on how you navigate relationships and relate to others. The reason this shows up as how you relate to others is because that is also how it works for Essence in the higher planes. Your Cadence works within its own Greater Cadence and its position within that Greater Cadence determines the contributions to the collaborative evolution. Your Greater Cadence also has a position, but it is not as prominent or defining in any plane. And finally, your ENTITY NUMBER/POSITION describes your relative position within your Cadre and how you contribute to the evolution of your Cadre, but it can show up in your life as helping to color how you relate to THE WORLD. "The World" here is literal, but it also includes how you relate to your community, to a project, to the workplace, etc. It describes how you relate to any larger group that is outside of your intimate circle. So if you are in Entity TWO/ARTISAN, you will relate to the world in the broadest of terms as an Artisan, regardless of your Role. Anyone from a TWO Entity will tend to be expressive, creative, chaotic, focusing on either creating or destroying "the world." Everything that is Artisan will apply. Again, this is in quite broad terms, so it can often show up as a cumulative characteristic. The more you participate "in the world," the more this might be obvious to you and shed insight into what matters to you, what methods you use, what is important to you, what challenges you, etc. Casting can be an elusive concept that depends on a grand understanding of the structure of Sentience, but what we shared above can be helpful for bringing some tangibility to these intangible concepts. We will open the floor now to your questions: ***QUEUE IS NOW OPEN*** (note, we will not be able to deliver individual details for Casting in this format today) Uma: Do we choose these positions between Grand Cycles? Uma: Do we have an understanding of this from previous Grand Cycles? Uma: What was I thinking when I chose to be a 6th fragment in a 1st Cadence in a 6th Entity in a 2nd Cadre? MEntity: A Grand Cycle begins when the decision is made to return to fragmentation and explore the universe again as an independent consciousness. This means that a Grand Cycle can begin long before Casting is set. Once enough fragments have agreed to a trajectory for exploration, then the Casting begins. It is difficult to explain the paradox of oneness and individual consciousness, but it exists. The vast collection of consciousness that is the oneness is similar to how drops of water are the ocean. It may seem a drop of water is lost in that ocean, but those drops can form again at any time and carry that independent awareness into separation. So the choice to return to fragmentation is made and a massive number of fragments agree and then the Casting begins. In the same way that an individual Essence learns better how to design a Personality and lifetime over a series of lifetimes, so does the individual spark of consciousness learn to better coordinate for maximum effectiveness over a Grand Cycle. In other words, a fragment's first Grand Cycle tends to take a Position wherever there is a Position or randomly, and this determines the Role and Casting, etc. It tends to take 7 Grand Cycles before one begins to grasp the far-reaching relevance of one's Casting Positions. The Casting of the Role tends to take priority in those initial efforts and then this expands to include consideration for the Cadence Position and Entity Number. In your case, there may have been grand vision of exploring the Inspiration Axis by emphasizing the Priest and Server elements of Casting. NEXT Kurtis: Hi Ms, thanks for this topic. I know my Casting Position and Entity, but do not have my Cadence Position; I think I am in an Artisan Row and Scholar Block though. Kurtis: In that case, I would like to know about how Artisan Cadences would relate to others? Perhaps I can validate my theory through your description here. Kurtis: By Row and Block I mean Cadence and Greater Cadence MEntity: The same description we gave for how the Artisan Entity might relate to The World would apply to how the Cadence relates to Others: Expressive, creative, chaotic, focusing on creating or destroying bonds. An Artisan Cadence tends to find relationships quite chaotic and confusing as they work their way through DELUSION and into CREATIVITY. These fragments will tend to have to strip themselves of any inclination to project and learn to see people for who and how they are (as opposed to how they wish to see others or how they wish others to behave or how they wish to be seen by others) so that they can build more appropriate relationships from a real common ground or navigate in more conscious ways toward those relationships that are healthy and away from those that may not be healthy. NEXT Janet: I have to expand on Uma’s question. Are there pre-planned Entity structures to join when Casting begins? Or are the Entity structures built based on how the participants want to play the game after deciding to play? I doubt that the structures are essentially the same for every Grand Cycle, but I could be wrong. MEntity: For new fragments, preplanned structures are in place and tend to be quite stable and "classic" in the design of 1029 fragments for each entity with no Wild Cards or variables. These structures are determined Cadre by Cadre. For example, one Energy Ring (group of 12 Cadres) can have a Cadre or two of fragments with 10 Grand Cycles under their belts who generate the design of their Cadre and even the Energy Ring, while also having a set of fragments making up other Cadres who have only 1 to 3 Grand Cycles. The higher the number of Grand Cycles for an Entity, the more likely it breaks out of the "classic" structure and begins to vary in number and include Wild Cards. As the average number of Grand Cycles in this universe is 3, most Entities and Energy Rings are quite stable and classic in structure, while Cadres like your own where the average Grand Cycles are around 10, the structures are far more creative and nuanced. And intentional. The infrastructure of a Design (our term for the whole of Sentience that will aim for incarnating as a specific species in the Physical Plane) tends to be mostly in place before the actual Casting. The actual action of Casting is in the simplest terms a matter of then taking your "permanent" seat for that Grand Cycle. However, to be a responsible teacher we must also say that this Casting process is, in fact, a rhythmic count that is an official process of "casting" one in the Position that one will take for the Grand Cycle. It is not as slow and as linear as you might imagine from your position in linear time. In fact, an entire Design is "cast at once," even as there is a rhythmic count that sets the design and fragment in motion. We have compared this to how a baker may make an entire batch of cookies "all at once" even as each cookie must still be formed and place individually. Janet: Is it a rhythm that continues through the Cycle and maybe provides a signature of the Cycle? MEntity: Yes. That is one of the reasons for the Casting process to be the way it is. There must be an active rhythm/beat in place that carries the fragments out and then back. That beat is at the heart of the beauty you seek and resonate with over lifetimes to find your way home. It is the Energy part of the Truth, Love, Energy building blocks of every universe. Uma: Is it similar to the way all our lives exist simultaneously? our lifetimes are like fractals of this process? MEntity: Every Grand Cycle will have its signature rhythm that is permanently stored in the core of Essence and Tao. Though every Grand Cycle is "forgotten" upon starting a new one, it remains on record and accessible to Essence through the Akashic Records and deep in the Instinctive Center that evolves over time for a Grand Cycle. Casting as "all at once" or simultaneously even as there is a rhythmic count is similar to how one lives all lives simultaneously even as they are individual lives within various time frames. Yes. This is because perspective makes a difference here. If you look at a calendar that shows the entire year, you can remember that year as a part of your life and how it shaped your life and what it meant to your evolution in terms of THAT YEAR, even as you know you had 365 days that comprised that year and can move your awareness right into any one of those days through your memories. So you can live your 365 individual days, but still see these in terms of a YEAR (simultaneous days). Does this answer your question, Uma? Uma: Yes Uma: but it blows my mind too MEntity: We will conclude here for today. We know there will always be more to explore regarding these terms and these parts of our teaching and we will be here to do so. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
