January 4, 2001 Troy Tolley, channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello. We are here. One moment. We realize, once again, there is no Topic suggested of us, so we will simply move into an Open Floor format. [ludmila] There has been much talk lately about child-abuse. What kind of karma or agreements is involved in this? Specifically sexual abuse of children by adult authority figures [Michael_Entity] Child abuse is not a standardized event. There are many factors that may be involved in the experience of abuse, whether between adult and child, human and non-human, etc. Karma is either created or is being balanced, though it is very rare for an Agreement to be involved, except in the Old and Mature Soul Cycles. Abuse when linked to an Agreement is specifically, then, related to the imprinting required for the fulfillment of the Life Task. Whether the abuse is “used” effectively as a tool in that process will rely on the fragment and the use of the Overleaves, in general. Abuse in relation to “Authority Figures” and children is not a category anymore than abuse from a stranger harassing a child on the playground. There are no definitions or differentiations that can create categories of abuse except in “styles” of abuse. We will say, however, that those who have experienced abuse as children at the hands of Authority Figures (assuming it is not a Karmic Formation) are generally balancing Karma related to Positions of Authority where Abuse was inflicted by “themselves.” As with all Burning of Ribbons, the Karmic situation is usually, simply, reversed. We do not know if we have addressed the deeper issues of concern or question here, but we have answered the question as stated, as clearly as we can. [mamajo] How can one tell when Karma is being created, and when it is an agreement to facilitate imprinting? [Michael_Entity] Any formation/burning of Karma interrupts and distracts the life in a deeply affecting way. Karmic Formation can usually be identified as lacking compulsion to be involved, but there is an element of shock and chaos. Karmic Burning of Ribbons is usually marked by a compulsion to remain involved far past logic and emotion and body would dictate otherwise, followed by a great relief when the Karma is burned. In the event of the Burning, much of what was so compelling is then seen in a bewildering light, as if you were in a trance the whole time. In terms of facilitating Imprinting, the fragment being abused usually has a “bizarre” sense of safety and peace throughout the events. There is a creation of a strong support group outside of the event, in many of these cases, which are rare, as we said. The abuse as imprinting is heavily marked by this use of the experience as a platform for a greater vision or affect on the life in a discernible way, without referencing the abuse in a negative way. [momhawk] Hello Michael. I was wondering about family ‘icons’ vs. ‘working groups’ as per your channel Victoria Marina. This material seems more in the Shamanistic vein, and I was wondering if there might be another way to view this type of Information, from a different ‘angle’ or slant (Perspective ;-) Does cadre 1/entity 1 have any ‘task groups’ that may be exploring “abuse” themes? Thank you. [Michael_Entity] Family Ikons are vastly different from Working Groups and have no bearing on each other. One is the imposition on the Personality as imposed by expectations from family and early environmental influences from important fragments in the life, while the other is a configuration of fragments working on esoteric themes begun in the Alexandrian Schools. Though we do not claim the latter as “our teaching,” we do have access to facilitating the teachers of that information. What you refer to as “task groups,” we may simply call Entity Themes. Your concepts of Task Groups, though, are not inaccurate, as there are pockets within the entity that do work on various themes. There is an “overall” theme, of course, for instance, in terms of your Entity being the most Cardinal and numbered 1 in your Cadre. Your themes in general will all be linked to Purpose and Simplicity; the positive and negative poles of any Entity One. Within the Entity there will be, again, a division in Cardinal and Ordinal themes. Many of you working with issues of abuse for your Entity are in the Ordinal half of your Entity. [momhawk] Would these ‘themes’ then, be like major and minor ‘octaves’ of learning experiences? [Michael_Entity] We would not link the terms “major or minor octaves of learning” to the themes. Those terms can relate to the overall Entity's collection of experiences and to a fragment's experiences, yes, but we do not define an order to these themes from this level with those terms. [momhawk] Ok, could entity one be ‘specializing’ in a major octave of HUMANITIES, with various ‘minor’ octaves (or ‘themes’) of those ‘subcategories’ (such as abuse), for instance? [Michael_Entity] The way you presented your last question, yes, your definition can easily be applied. Artisans are even more preoccupied with the architecture and order of an Entity and Universe than even us. We say that with validity, not necessarily to provoke humour. [nemo999] Should I expect or seek justice on the physical plane? It does not appear to exist here, or for a personality. [Michael_Entity] This would depend on your definition of “Justice.” If by this you mean a sweet feeling of satisfaction for having felt something has wronged you, there can be temporary satisfaction in various ways, but rarely does it settle the “soul.” If by Justice you mean an awesomely compassionate balance to every event, then that is something you can count on entirely to be found. [nemo999] Balance within one life span? [Michael_Entity] While on the Physical Plane, much of what is sought as “justice” is simply a need to be acknowledged. Much of what is defined within a lifetime as injustice or justice is but a minute part of the larger picture. It is only within the concepts of the Old Cycle that a fragment may truly be able to bring to the Physical Life a sense of that awesome balance. So, to answer your question more succinctly: to expect or seek justice within a lifetime before the Old Cycle is usually indicative of Maya, Self-Karma, Karma, or Chief Feature and the apparent balance may or may not be seen. [Kathie89] I am interested in palmistry. Does frequency show up in the hands? Specifically, do smooth fingers indicate high frequency and knotted fingers show low frequency? [Michael_Entity] The hands are an excellent indicator of how the Frequency is being used, but not necessarily what that person's Frequency is. Smoother joints/knuckles in the fingers do appear to indicate the processing of the life to be at a higher frequency, while more “knotted” joints/knuckles can indicate a halting or stalling of processing of the life. Those who have lower frequencies will have had “knotted” fingers for most of their life, regardless, and can rarely “smooth” them out, but those with higher frequencies can tend to create a more “knotted” structure due to being imposed on by lower frequency fragments. It is much more “acceptable” in general to have a lower to mid frequency, therefore those with higher frequencies are more subject to being reprimanded in their processing style for “not thinking,” being “too spontaneous,” “jumping into things,” being “chaotic,” etc. If lower frequency fragments surround a higher frequency fragment, the knotting can indicate this reduction of processing to accommodate. [Kathie89] So life experience can slow down a high frequency? [Michael_Entity] It cannot “slow” the frequency itself, but it can slow down the fragment's managing of it. For instance, those who have higher frequencies who deal with the imposition of lower frequencies tend to “pop their knuckles” more, burn their hands at some point seriously, get bitten, etc., as a means to bring a consciousness to the process that would normally not be required. We will note additionally that those with higher frequencies even when having knotted joints will still tend to have a “smoother” flow over the knuckle, a gradual shaping. Though this is not an intended pun, our response only touches the surface of this question regarding palmistry. There is more correlation that is valid. [Lori] I would like to know what working group or theme I might be in my entity seven, cadre one. [Michael_Entity] Though we do not specialize in that teaching through this channel, we can say that it appears you would be part of what is referred to as the HAWK Working Group. In terms of your Entity's Theme in general, Entity 7 is geared toward the spectrum between Inculcation and Eclecticism; the positive and negative poles of any Entity 7. The themes within your particular Entity are highly active in Teaching. Most specialize in addressing troubled Personalities in some fashion, offering insight, healing or teaching. There are a great number of psychiatrists, ministers, and therapists (physical and emotional), and musicians with focus on healing as the result of their music. Andreas Vollenweider is a prominent example of the latter. [Barb] Good evening, Michael. I realize you are not a “Psychic Eye” per se, but can you give us any probabilities as to what the next four years hold in store for the United States under the leadership of our next president, George W. Bush? [Michael_Entity] We do not believe this fragment will remain in a position long enough to warrant a look into the next four years. The percentages are quite high for this fragment to leave his position in a rather dramatic fashion. He only wanted the experience of “winning” and living up to his own Family Ikon. This is ecstasy for that fragment and the responsibilities that go with remaining in the position are far too overwhelming. This is one of your major shifts in Power that will be scrutinized. Especially after the apparent fiasco around the process of getting this fragment to that position in the first place. The next four years, though, will be focused on themes instilling a new consciousness around CHOICE. Your election was one of the first “lessons” around this Century of Choice and the ramifications of choice being interfered with or not enforced. A new “60's” mentality appears to be on the horizon with greater numbers in protest and “raising their voices.” It is safe to say that the Mature Soul consciousness is well under way on your planet. [MaryBV] I know the name for cadre 1, entity 1 is She-Hulk, but what is the name for Cadre 2, entity 3? If possible could we get the names for entities 1-7 in this cadre? [NOTE from Troy: Below, in response to the above question, is a good example of channeling being influenced by the limitations of ME. “I” read the question to Michael wrong and they responded to that. This is a more literal example, but any channel in their interpretation can distort any question and then the channeling/Michael responds to that. Sometimes that subtlety would be hard to see. Anyway, take it as an interesting fumble, if nothing else!] [Michael_Entity] That is not the name for Entity One, Cadre One. That is a convenient and affectionate name chosen by some of our channels to capture the “flavour” of that Entity's general dynamic. Understanding that these are not names chosen by us, we will share what, in general, has come to be references for these Entities: Entity One: “She-Hulk”; due to the Artisan/Warrior dynamic and the fact of Artisans being in more male bodies, while Warriors being in Female bodies. Entity Two: “The Loudmouths”; due to the high proportion of Artisans and Sages. One only need meet a fragment from that Entity to understand this nickname. [MaryBV] Michael, please excuse the interruption, but I was requesting information on cadre 2 [Michael_Entity] We are limited by our channel's eyes, of course. We are “blind” without them. We will respond again: since Cadre Two has so few fragments involved directly with us, there has come to be no consistent “nicknames” for the Entities. As we said, they are not names chosen by us, but we are unaware of any significant names at this time. It would not be difficult to create them, if you observe more of the dynamics of the entities involved. We, then, do not have an answer for this. [End of Channel Blunder, ha ha] [Barry] Regarding your description of working groups as “a configuration of fragments working on esoteric themes begun in Alexandrine schools….,” this struck a chord with me. I’m not asking for details, but can you confirm whether I am part of such a group and if so, what it’s esoteric theme is? (Cadre 1, Entity 6) [Michael_Entity] You are from an obscure grouping called LEOPARD. The themes involve being in highly contrasting environments from what your “true colours” are, thus bringing whatever teaching theme is being studied at the time to more fragments not directly linked to that teaching. Your entity and cadre have no bearing on the configurations. [liiona] How many members of 1/6 are incarnate vs. discarnate or cycled off? Any geographic concentrations? What do we “integrate?” What is our theme? [Michael_Entity] Cadre One, Entity Six has approximately 440 incarnated. There is a high concentration in the United States, along both coasts and what is the southern border of the country. There are approximately 262 discarnate, while approximately 372 are cycled off. The theme of Integration revolves around being a “magnet” for fragments seeking a touchstone of sorts. Many from Entity Six act regularly as a pivotal force in many lives. They also draw together groups of people to fulfill Agreements with each other and make connections that otherwise would not have happened. Any Entity Six works within the spectrum from Harmony to Connection; the positive and negative poles. Harmony creates a “solid” world for all fragments involved, while Connection simply joins fragments. Neither are good or bad, but merely the spectrum of the themes explored. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
This is the transcript from the 2017 Michael Speaks at TruthLoveEnergy Great Gathering in the format of "Ask Michael." This was generously transcribed from a live recording by @DanielaS. NOTE: This was a weird weekend of live channeling that revealed some weak moments in holding my full trance. In this transcript, you can see this in the initial transition where I "thought" a funny thought but it came out of my mouth as part of the channeling delivery. Michael always calls these moments out, but it's a really weird experience. I don't realize it's happening. Also, note that vocal channeling comes out more conversational and unrefined than the usual text channeling. Enjoy! TLEGG 2017 Ask Michael 2017-09-30 Channeled by Troy Tolley MEntity: OK. Bear with us for a moment. Hello to each of you. We are here now. We will begin with a comment that reminds you of the very premise of our teaching, and that is that while there are many factors involved in your being here for this gathering and many factors that could be designated as synchronistic and magical, we remind you that you are here because you choose to be. Everything that got you here for this gathering to be with your fellow Cadre and Entity members and students of our teaching is all because of your choice and your actions to follow up on those choices. We remind you of this because it can be very easy to dismiss the power of your choice and the power of your actions that it took to be here, as well as the collaborations among all of you to make this happen. So, we just wanted to start off with that reminder that if there is nothing else learned in our exchanges, the one thing that we wish for our students to carry forward is that power of choice because things like this get to happen when you follow up with action. And with that, we can begin with your questions or you can say hello to us. All: Hello! Hello, Michael! Daniela: What is “Good Work?” Is there such a thing as “Not Good Work?” MEntity: Oh, good. An easy one. [Laughter] It takes a little bit of time for the circuit to get stronger through our channel. We use the term Good Work, not as a compliment. [A loud sound of a phone dropping on the floor] That is not Good Work. [Laughter] This was an example of Troy still being there. [Laughter] That was not our humor. [Laughter] We use the term Good Work to reference anything that you do that in some way supports your Life Task, which is quite a broad spectrum of actions that you can take. But when we tend to lean towards that phrase it is likely a very specific action that you have taken in some way that very directly benefits your Life Task. There is really no such thing as Not Good Work, but there is such a thing as No Work. There are many things that an individual fragment can do in the life that do not support the Life Task. It would be unfair to describe that as Not Good Work because you have a choice. And if you were to be reprimanded or in any way scolded with terminology that indicates your needing to correct choices, we would not be very good teachers, in our opinion. So, we use the term Good Work when you are doing something to support your Life Task. And we do this because if you see a pattern in our comments referencing what is Good Work then you may see patterns yourself in what more you can do to support your Life Task. BobbyA: I would love for Michael to cover why it is so problematic for Concurrents to meet or come across each other. I would think it would be no different than any two other Personalities since there would have to be something there in common to even generate an interest to begin with. Yeah, having the same Essence “might” be the catalyst but I still don't understand why it’s often treated like “worlds colliding.” MEntity: Concurrents can cross paths and meet, but the difference between Concurrents and individual fragments is the amount of buffering between your Personalities. When fragments come across each other, regardless of their ancient bond and their ancient knowledge of each other, there is a built-in buffer that allows the Personalities to gauge and decide and participate in the choice in how close and how fast that bond is revealed or explored. When Concurrents cross paths this tends to be lost, it is bypassed. There is a lack of a buffer between Concurrents that can short-circuit the individual Personalities involved because it is an immediate displacement of the Personality and it is terrifying. The closest to this is when Essence Twins cross paths. That same experience can come about in a very mild version, but when Concurrents cross paths they simply do not have the built-in buffer that most individual fragments do. To explain why that's the case is something that we do not have terminology for in our teaching. But that is why, because there is simply no buffer between the Personalities. We are trying to come up with an analogy. BobbyA: Did that ever happen with any of your own Personalities, that you could use to describe the experience? MEntity: The closest that we can come up with in describing the experience is a kaleidoscoping of our perspectives or a funhouse mirror of sorts that is a reflection within a reflection within a reflection, and the processing that is required to make sense of that overpowers the Personalities in a number of ways. We do not know why there is less of a buffer. We think it has to do with simply the nature of your being of the exact same Essence and there is no math to divide you. There is no mathematical divide in the same way that Entity members have their own mathematical address. You and your Concurrents share the exact address. When you come across each other, there is no math being negotiated. That is the closest way we can describe why it does not happen. You are already the same equation. This may not have been a fully satisfying answer, but it is close enough for now. BobbyK: All right, our next question comes from Uma. MEntity: We have more to say for a moment. We got something in. The other reason is not so much to explain why it is difficult for Concurrents to be in the same space, but there is a reason for it in terms of the Concurrents' existence is solely for the sake of covering different territories in the same space and time. And if Concurrents were to congregate in the same space, that point is lost to the reasons for the Concurrents in the first place. And so, this built-in repulsion is in effect to keep Concurrents from being in the same space too closely and in the same time because the point would then be lost for why both were existing. The point of Concurrents is to cover more territory for more experience. Uma: This has been on my mind since I read it: What are all the elements of the teaching and how completely and accurately has each element been accessed? What elements have we not accessed as yet? Looking at the Michael material that is already ‘out there,’ what kind of book or other ‘publication’ does Michael see as being the most productive and fruitful in terms of spreading the Teachings? (This is a selfish question because I am obsessed with how I will find the Teachings in my next lifetime.) [Laughter] MEntity: Now that is a good question. [Laughter] Because we have already delineated these Elements and Waves in other deliveries [see The 7 Waves & Elements of the Michael Teachings], the short answer is that you are currently in the True Application of our teaching in the Application Element phase of our teaching. This is the third phase. The 7 Elements of our teaching carry within each of these the 7 Waves that reflect the larger pattern of Elements. And so, when you are in the Application Element and you get to the Application Wave, that is what we describe as True Application. So, since 2010, our students who have stuck around have taken on the tasks of True Application of our teaching. This means diving deeper into the practical elements of the teaching, living out these elements of the teaching; in particular, in ways that allow you to exist in the world among those who are not our students and still find common ground in vocabulary and exchange and intimacy. If you have the experience of being, living our teaching, and it is a divide between yourself and another then you are part of that process of True Application of our teaching. You are trying to find a way to live the teaching in ways that do not divide you from others but in a way of growing closer to them. If you find that that is the case, that you are divided or there is a wall that is built, that is part of your Agreement with us is to try to explore that wall, that divide and find your way through that. It is also a process of discovery that Application does not necessarily mean sharing in terminology, sharing in enthusiasm, sharing your passion for this teaching, but finding ways that help other people based on what you are learning, based on how you are growing. It is not about recruitment, it is about Application. So, you are in this phase, and it only began in 2010. It will probably last for another 50 years before moving into the Recording phase. The actual permanence of our teaching, in a form that can be found in its same form in future lifetimes that extend across centuries, probably will not occur for another 100-300 years. So, while you are documenting in books and websites and working to keep alive some reference that the next life can find, the actual True Recording will not occur until we have the technology available to us on your planet and among you to do True Recording. So, right now you are in True Application and you will move into a Wave of Recording in about 50 years, at this point. Did this answer your question? Uma: I'll be 125. [Laughter] MEntity: We can say that we have yet to have lost a student. We always find you. You always find us. It is not always without obstacles because of different scenarios and climates that occur during incarnational phases. But we eventually come back around to reunions, such as now. BobbyA: Since we have printed material now and other mediums like that, do you have any idea what that technology might look like in that time period? MEntity: During the True Recording period or during the Recording period of this Element? BobbyA: During the future Recording. The Application Recording. Or, I'm sorry, Recording stage. You know what I'm saying. [Laughter] I'm confused. MEntity: Within this Application Element, you are asking what the Recording phase will be like after the True Application. James: So, the 50-year or the 300-year? Were you asking that? MEntity: The 50-year will be an evolution towards Artificial Intelligence that will allow us to begin a process of communicating through technology. There will be, at this point, a high probability that we can see where the Artificial Intelligence evolves to a place of subtle receptivity that allows for communication from beyond the understanding of the Physical Plane, and we can manipulate that in a way that can communicate. And we will be able to speak to our students in various ways through Artificial Intelligence. That will be the next Recording Wave of this particular Application Element. The True Recording, we are not certain how that will go because it is far enough into the future that there are quite a few variables. But there is likely to be some form of immersive experience that will allow you to access each other, access a representative of our communication, in a space that is difficult to describe with the terminology available to us now, but could be closest to being understood as holographic chambers that allow for that exchange to occur on a constant basis, on a regular basis, in a way that affects our teaching in a new way. BobbyK: When all the Elements of the teaching are complete, would you then stop teaching at this point? MEntity: We would probably be done with our students in the sense that they will be cycling off to a proportion that no longer requires our exchanges and the fulfillment of our Agreements will have been completed. So, yes, we will still be teachers to some extent because all of you will be, and all of us will continue to be to some version or another of consciousness. But, yes, that would be close to what you could describe as the end of our teaching, in the way you understand it now. Brian: You once mentioned about Waves of your teaching and about future generations. I am curious, what Wave of the teachings are we in right now and what Agreements are being made for the next generation of Michael channels? Is there anyone in particular, either in our existing Michael group or another Michael group, that is learning to “pick up the torch,” as a future Michael channel for the younger generation? MEntity: Yes, we addressed some of that. As for the next wave of channels, we cannot point to individuals because that would remove their choice and also put undue pressure and expectation on an individual, and that is treading too close to a karmic territory. But we do have a set of at least 12 individuals who are working with us in a way that will emerge if they follow their inclination and impulses and continue to do the work required for allowing our communication to come through. So, yes, we are working with a new set of channels, some of which are already “on the scene” and will be more likely to find their footing in the next 2-5 years in a way that you can say, Oh, I remember when Michael mentioned this. Did we cover that question? Brian: That works! DianeHB: You've mentioned in various future life sessions that our future lives have asked about and know about our present lives happening now. [Laughter] I’m wondering if TLE's archive of sessions and writings survive to that time (between 100-300 years from now) and if future students know about us. Do they know which ones of us are their past lives? Brian: My apologies to my future self! [Laughter] MEntity: It is quite beautiful and moving to us to have the capacity to work with our students in their various incarnations at the same time while you are existing within a linear space to see that evolution occur in a way that is not possible to experience while in a physical form or even as an individual fragment in many ways. It's fascinating to us because when we are working with the future versions of you in 300 years they are only one probability of you. There are other versions of you that we may or may not have contact with. But when we have referenced your future lives in 100-300 years, those [Troy starts to laugh] future versions of you — we do not know why the channel is laughing — are more aware of you than you are of them. We will say that. We have far more to work with in that time that allows us to give greater references that are more capable of being validated in a way that is quite profound to those “you” in the future. In other words, they know all about you. [Laughter] Cyprus: I have a question. MEntity: We are — Cyprus: We've talked about time travel where they come back to, like, look at us, or peek at us, or whatever, vacation. Are those, the 100-300 years, are those people able to do that at that point? Or is that much farther in the future? MEntity: Much farther. Cyprus: Martha? Martha: No, I was waving to the people who are watching us from the future. [Laughter] MEntity: We feel as if we lost the second part of the question. There was more. The archives. Yes. BobbyK: I'm wondering if TLE's archive of sessions and writings survive to that time. MEntity: Yes. The work that is in process currently and will continue over the next 20 years is vital to the references that are accessible to those future lifetimes, referencing you here. It does survive and there is more to come. AnnH: And this is related to finding out about a future life of mine with Geraldine -- Hi, Geraldine! -- where we work on the so-called Timeline, Geraldine's Timeline, together in a library. Is that one of those archives that is going to continue, I take it? I know that! Fuck, yeah. [Laughter] MEntity: Yes. AnnH: I know it's not just Geraldine and me. I'm sure there are other people as well. MEntity: Yes. We are telling your future selves about this gathering as we speak. [Laughter] We can continue with your questions. Kerrin: Are we still on this planet in 300 years in the future? [Laughter] Are we on Mars? Are we still on Earth? MEntity: There is an exploration that has gone beyond your Earth, yes. But you are still here, yes. Brian: You mentioned that you're, from your perspective, currently in contact with our future gathering. And you say you are discussing us. May I ask, what are you telling them? [Laughter] MEntity: We think this is why Troy's body is reacting with the humor because it is a paradox to be experiencing this in his body. It is an unusual feeling. We are just mentioning to them the curiosity and fascination of these selves. The conversation was prompted by a session that we are working with several from this group at the moment discussing how a past life has helped to heal their current life. And the work you are doing here is part of what makes life heal there. And this is what we were referencing when we said that it is quite beautiful and moving to us because when we can -- and you can see this as well when you are dead [Laughter] -- that the tapestry of energy that is woven among your Personalities across time and how they work together is something that cannot be replicated in beauty in the Physical Plane. It is quite a mosaic. So, what you do and what you choose in this life is not just about you, although it is, because the “you” in the future is also you. But you matter on a larger scale than is easy to remember when you are in such dense, local bodies. So, we can encourage you to remember this and breathe in that sense of expansion when you have a moment. We can take your next question. Maureen: I still wonder about the timing of Obama's presidency and then our “fall from grace” into Trump's greedy little fingers. [Laughter] Is this some form of random, political Russian roulette that will make sense in the future, when we look back at this time? Are these extremes of Obama/Trump now in motion as an energetic “system” of some kind, in our collective consciousness, perhaps like a pendulum, as a springboard to 2020's Infinite Soul manifestations? MEntity: There is nothing orchestrated about this. It is purely the terror, the fear that always precedes a shift in paradigm. And the shift to the Mature Soul Age IS here. You are in it. And it cannot be stopped, but there will be attempts to do so. In addition to those attempts to do so, the attempts play directly into the hands of the Mature Soul paradigm because it is defined by drama. What you are experiencing currently, in terms of particularly this year's anxiety, stress, depression, deflation, is ironically a good sign in terms of the progression into the Mature Soul Age. That shift, that space between the retaliation and resistance and the full embrace is NOW. The full embrace is imminent. We cannot predict an exact date, but you will feel that relief. But 2020 is likely the shift that will be moving you toward that full embrace. However, because of the Mature Soul paradigm being anchored in drama and intensity and emotional turmoil, it may not feel like such a great thing. But it will only start out that way because of the nature of moving into anything from the negative pole and then finding a way toward the positive pole. So, it may be difficult to discern that 2020 was a Turning Point that helped to bring relief because it may still be intense and dramatic and emotionally tumultuous, but it is something that our students can practice embracing in a way that is not seen as a de-evolution or a setback or a regression or the end or demise or humanity falling apart. Our students as Old Souls have a natural responsibility to see beyond this. This is very important as an Old Soul. And that is one of the reasons why it feels so painful for some of you, because the responsibility is heavy, and you do not necessarily want to do it as Personalities. But you have to see the bigger picture. The Old Soul eventually can see the bigger picture and, depending on where you are in that spectrum of practice in seeing the bigger picture, helps determine how stressed out and depressed and overwhelmed you are. It does not mean that you have to ignore the acute picture or the immediate threats or dangers and grief. But keeping that bigger picture involved in your perspective is key to your surviving this in a way that feels as if you have participated in a world that is evolving and not falling apart. Do you understand? It is not easy. Did we answer the question? Janet: How do we see? The obvious answer is that we see with our eyes, but I think something more than that is going on. I don't use my physical eyes while dreaming, and yet I remember visual scenes. I don't use my eyes when ‘visualizing’ or using my imagination, but I still ‘see’ things. People who have out of body experiences report being able to see as though they have physical eyes, even while their physical eyes are closed. So, what's going on? Is vision really only about the use of physical eyeballs connected to a physical brain, or are there components to vision that are not physical at all? MEntity: What is missing in the equation is consciousness. Consciousness does not require eyes. That is why we can see you without eyeballs. We cannot see you through this channel at the moment because if he opens his eyes he may break a connection with us. He must keep his eyes closed because he likes to be participating and present. Having the eyes closed helps us to come through without his being distracted by shiny objects, so to speak. Consciousness is not limited to biological senses. This is why you can see in the Astral Plane, this is why we can see the way we can see. Because consciousness moves much like a cursor on a computer screen, if you will. It moves along a medium that is like an ocean of energy, or an ocean of pixels if you will. And in the same way that a cursor can be on one part of the screen and move to another part of the screen is the way consciousness works in the universe. You do not have to be on Mercury to visit it in terms of seeing it. This is why remote viewing is possible. Because it is all interconnected in a way that is not quite understood and is currently being explored in quantum physics. But there is no limitation to consciousness and its capacity to generate sensory data without the body. How that happens we do not have terminology through this channel to necessarily explain it, but you are correct in that your sight is not dependent upon your eyes. Did this address the question well enough? Cong: Can Michael comment on what type of knowledge was available in the library of Alexandria that is lost today? Any possibility of retrieving that knowledge in the near future, for example, by some archaeological findings? MEntity: We do know that there are archaeological pockets that are likely to be discovered that reference a time period referring to the Alexandrian libraries. We do not know when this is likely to occur, but it is likely. As far as what type of knowledge, the range is too vast to cover in a discussion in this format at this time. But it is mostly knowledge that was relative to the sciences, to the cultures of the time, to philosophical explanations and thought experiments that revealed great insight into the nature of reality. So, one of the ways that that knowledge was able to survive and move forward is because of your design as individual Essences with an Instinctive Center. Because those who were involved in the Alexandrian libraries were still able to carry forward the knowledge that was gained and registered in individuals participating at the time in the Instinctive Center, that was much like a disc inserted into the lifetime and then pulled out and moved forward into the next lifetime, so to speak. And as you have awakened in your soul age over time, many have retrieved information that was from that time period and put it in a modern context. For example, Jane Roberts was a great example of an individual accessing Instinctive Center information that then was able to, through her contact with her guide, with her teacher, Seth, was able to retrieve a great deal of insight into the nature of reality. So, a lot of what is in the Seth material is quite a fair example of knowledge that was in the Alexandria libraries that our students, at least, were fascinated with and have brought forth into modern times. But they will find more. Kerrin: Will it be through archaeology or through Instinctive Centers? MEntity: Both. NickG: I was wondering, as a personality evolves throughout its life, do the personal descriptions for manifesting True Personality and False Personality stay relatively the same? Like, if someone were to ask you that question at 10 and again at 50 would you describe the two variations the same? For example, you described my True Personality as being ‘enlightened’ and false personality as being ‘loneliness.’ Will I still carry those two into my golden years? MEntity: Personalities are fairly consistent in where their range is between True and False Personalities. So, though it can change, it is quite likely to remain the same. They are helpful references to carry with you as you do go into your “Golden Years,” because they will still help you to gauge where you are in your embrace of Essence as Personality. So, the terms that we may offer to you to understand that spectrum between True and False Personality are fairly persistent enough to use throughout the entire life. Yes. Daniela: You have said that, "Scholars within any Entity or Cadre tend to act as record keepers and act as the responsible party for updating the Akashic Records involving events within and throughout the Entity and/or Cadre." Regarding Priests you have said that, during the disclosure and merging process on Astral Level 5, they are the "fragments who run these meetings, and help to direct the healing." So, if Scholars function as information processing units and Priests as facilitators and counselors, what functions do Servers, Artisans, Warriors, Sages, and Kings perform for their Entity/Cadre? MEntity: We may need a beverage for this. [Laughter] Servers are the Roles that come into their own the earliest and in the Physical Plane. They learn very quickly what matters and what does not and serve as the healers and the — we are looking for a phrase — the “canaries in the mine” in terms of how healthy the fragments of an Entity are at any given time. If your Servers are suffering, if they are in any way isolated, ailing, they are representing the processes of healing that are happening in their particular Entity. So, they are a gauge for where the collective of an Entity is in terms of its healing. Or a Cadre, for the Entities that do not have Servers in them. They will carry that weight. And most Servers will gladly tell you that they feel this weight. [Laughter] And there will be lifetimes where they opt out and let the rest of you grow up [Laughter] on your own in certain ways to gain from what was given to you in other lifetimes by that Server energy throughout the Entity or Cadre. So, they are the barometers of the Entities and Cadre, so to speak. Artisans are the innovators, of course, of the Entities and help to bring to the Physical Plane all that is imagined by members of an Entity. So, they are the connection between the formed and the unformed. Whether they are in themselves doing any creating, they will always be a part of the circuitry of an Entity or Cadre that helps to bring into form the ideas and innovations and imaginations of the members of an Entity or Cadre. So, they act as conduits for that and many Artisans respond to this in two different ways, and one is that they will try their best to control that persistent surge of creative energy that is coming from everywhere in their Entity or Cadre. They will try to control this and manage it and focus it and may even be more inclined toward strictness and structure and organization and predictable patterns. And the reason for this is because it helps to sort out the mess of creative energy that comes from the chaos of so many contributing to it. Or they will short circuit and carry forward a chaotic life and allow a representation of all of the unfinished and unformed and “crazy” ideas that are floating among the Entity and Cadre. So, this is important to understand for Servers and Artisans, that some of the behaviors and patterns of the individual life is not just because of the Personality. There is a force of energy that is also being navigated that's coming from not only your Essence but from its connection to its Entity and what it does as a part of the process of that Entity and function of that Entity. So, Artisans carry that weight of everybody chiming in with great ideas about what life on Earth could benefit from. And some will respond in a way that wants to organize this and some will respond in a way that says, well, let's see how crazy we can get with this. [Laughter] Warriors tend to be the bonding factors for a great many fragments across the Entities and Cadre. Warriors clear or help to clear the bullshit from all of the things that keep you from getting closer to each other, whether this is done in a persuasive way or a coercive way. [Laughter] But the work of the Warrior in the Physical Plane amongst its relationships in the life and between lives is part of what helps to allow for the Astral Plane reunion to happen in a way that is less chaotic than it would be otherwise. They are the glue for the Cadre. Sages are the teachers, of course, and they are primarily the source that, after the Servers have let you bumble through and grow up on your own, the Artisans have let the craziness occur, and the Warriors have brought the glue, and the Scholars are storing all of this, the Sages say, everybody lighten up. [Laughter] Let's have fun. Remember your innocence. Remember that we are ageless. Remember that this was supposed to be fun. [Laughter] Which can be lost on the other Roles. And can be quite annoying to the other Roles. [Laughter] But the Sages will persist and continue to poke at you, and provoke you, in ways that either bring you laughter, which is the representation of resolving paradoxes, resolving conflicts, oneness, or provoke you to find in yourself where you are refusing to allow joy, to allow your happiness, to allow your innocence, to allow your fun. So, you will either allow that in the laughter or you will see very clearly where you are uptight, resistant, or still dealing with pain that needs to be addressed. In the same way that children will either remind you to get in touch with that child or remind you how to care more about the joy of life, so will the Sages be that reminder for all the fragments of a Cadre, even into the Astral Plane. And we know this may not come of comfort to some of you, but they will continue to be a source [Troy laughs] of provocation into the Astral and Causal Plane. So, we will describe them as the provocative, or the provocateur. The source of provocation. We are not getting the correct term out, but we know you know what we are saying. Catalyst. Kings are the Roles that really do not come into full bloom until the Causal Plane. They are the delegators of the Cadres and Entity, they are the Role that eventually reminds everyone where their seats are, [Laughter] where their place is, and allows for a far more efficiently functioning Entity to occur so that the true exploration of existence can occur. Existence on a level that is not capable of being explored while fragmented. And Kings, of course, feel this even in their individual lifetimes because it will never, while across the entire spectrum of incarnations while in the Physical Plane, feel as if things are right, things are settled, or working the way they could be. Because of this inherent nature as a functioning part of a Cadre or Entity to bring that order on a scale that is very difficult to see or understand or implement while in a physical body in the Physical Plane. So, that is our response at this point. We know that it could have been more succinct, but this is our first movement through Troy in a while. And that is the best we could do tonight. Kerrin: So, Entities that don't have all the Roles, such as yours Michael, it's just Warriors and Kings, how do you compensate for the missing parts, so to speak? MEntity: However each Entity's design is in terms of a proportion of Roles, the Cadre makes up for in its distribution of Roles. So, the entire Cadre will have a persistent and consistent representation of the Roles in some way divided among the seven and will work as a whole. So, while we do not have many of the Roles, the rest of the Cadre helps to carry that processing or Roles or functions, and it's not limited to what is accessible through our own Entity. So, when it is not there, it moves to another Entity that is willing to provide that. There tend to be Entities, this is not a rule, but it tends to be that an Entity may have a predominance of a certain Role and will play that for the rest of the Cadre, while another Entity will have a predominance of a Role that will then play that function for the rest of the Cadre, and so forth. So that every Entity is playing some role that participates in the functioning of the entire Cadre. Does this make sense? BobbyK: If our casting is how we manifest in our daily lives, can some of the functionalities of the Roles correlate into our casting? MEntity: Yes, not quite as strongly. But, yes. Cong: So, what you just said, does it imply that some Entities within a Cadre will work more closely together? For example, Cadre 1 Entity 2 does not have a lot of Servers. So, does it mean that this Entity works more with Entity 7 in this Cadre because they have more Servers? MEntity: Yes. All of Cadre 1's Entities work very closely with Entity 7. It is primarily Servers and Priests, so it carries the weight of the processes that Servers and Priests do. Mostly the Servers. Tex: For some reason, Geraldine’s been on my mind. Is she listening in? And how does she reach you now? MEntity: Oh! [Laughter] It took awhile for her to settle down. [Laughter] There was a lot of demanding questions that her Essence and Guides had to contend with, and we helped in that process, and that continues to this day. There is, in her words, “So much more than I thought to ask while I was alive.” And part of what was considered, for lack of a better term, her “Heaven” is the experience of finally accessing all of the ways that questions can be answered. She may forget these upon next incarnation, but the Review and the work are there and will always carry forward. But she is not listening at this point to your conversation. She is fairly busy. [Laughter] We will conclude here then and say to each of you, have a good evening and good-bye.
August 17, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We understand we will start with your Energy Report. This will cover the weeks from the 19th through the 1st. First we will comment that the past weekend was a rather powerful energy flux for many of you, particularly on Sunday. If you did not notice anything, this is nothing to be concerned about. Many of you, though, experienced something similar to an “energy wash.” For those participating in that “wave,” this could have been a slow accumulation or you may have been “hit” rather hard. This “wash” was not uncommon. It is a processing of parallel shifts to date. After many Parallel shifts, sometimes there tends to be what might be considered residual plans, ideas, hopes, etc., that have long begun to be fulfilled in other parallels. When an assessment occurs, which it did over the past week within the first three Cadres of your Energy Ring, a “fresh” alignment occurs similar to a “domino affect”; an alignment among Entity and Cadre Members. There are many ways to look at it, but it is a purging. This is sometimes laced with depression and grief for the first day, even preoccupation with your mortality. Then the stronger, more focused motivation, inspiration, and feelings set in. This then sets up what the next couple of weeks are about. Though some of you may not have experienced what we just described, most of you still are processing your Intellect and Attitudes toward your current life. That is what this “season” is about in general. For the next two weeks, the 19th through the 1st, this appears to be energy moving through Sentience that will allow a respite from your personal Chief Features. Every year there is an opportunity at some point, a window, that allows the Personality to have a “break,” an ability to experience perception without Chief Feature. The next two weeks appear to be that window. This does not mean you are not going to experience your fears or Chief Features, simply that you are in a time frame that will allow you experience the enhanced potential of alleviation from Chief Feature, if you consciously choose that. In fact, you may be highly exposed to your Chief Features, but the energy available will allow you higher consciousness in alleviating their grip. We will suggest a few things that will help, if you choose to experiment. Over the next couple of weeks you can use your body as a tool in this alleviation. You can create any physical cue you find to be a reminder, but we will suggest simple cues for each Axis. These are to be used in any single moment when you “photograph” yourself in the potential throes of Chief Feature. For Sages and Artisans, the physical cue to help you dissolve a moment of Chief Feature, is to gently SMILE. Literally Smile and generate internally a humor in the moment, an affection for your “trickster.” Smile, feel it move through your centers, and then proceed. We state here that this is not a solution, it is a tool. When the Sages and Artisans can see their Fears as children simply demanding attention, they can smile, “wink” internally to acknowledge the distraction, and affectionately “scoot” the Chief Feature on. Remember times when you, yourself, were a nuisance, but merely sought acknowledgment. For Warriors and Kings, we suggest a moment to bring your attention to your POSTURE. Kings and Warriors are either too rigid while in the throes of Chief Feature, or they are wearing down and slumping, protecting the Moving Center. In your moment, simply adjust your Posture. Just for a moment, sit up straight, feel yourself return to a place of empowerment, or relax, sigh out a relief and just let your posture go. When Warriors and Kings can see their Fears as servants and protectors that are overworking or without direction, they can easily transform them. Remember times when you became overbearing in your impact on someone, but merely sought to do what you thought was “right”. Priests and Servers can use the physical cue of taking their palms and gently resting their face in them, spreading the palms and pulling the hands back as if to wash the face. Do this gently and with a conscious realization that you were hiding. This symbolic gesture will literally have the potential to remove a layer of energy you carried as a mask of strength. If you are in public, using one hand, caressing one cheek then the other, as if you are wiping away a spider web, can do a great deal in reminding you that you are “human.” If Priests and Servers can see their Fears as Healed Events that have overstayed their welcome, they can encourage a release of them, making a decision that it is not necessary to nurture or uphold these things that were once important. Remember times when you, yourself, had completed a relationship in someone’s life, knowing it was time to “move on”. Many Priest and Servers hang on to fears because they assume their release will make them lose a part of their identity. Your physical cues, Priests/Servers, go a long way in reminding you that you have an updated identity to fulfill. Scholars, your physical cue appears to be linked to two body parts, your arms and your stomach. When in the throes of your Chief Feature, we suggest making an effort to unfold your arms. This will help you feel more like a participant than an “outsider.” We also suggest taking a moment to place on palm on your stomach, one on over your Heart. In that moment, simply remind yourself, “I am alive.” Scholars can alleviate many of their fears by seeing the Fears as navigational tools, not obstacles. Some Scholars can then allow the Fears to be indications as to what they are studying next, or an indication of what they are least interested in studying and let that go. Remember times when you, yourself, have overpowered a person with your “information” without realizing the need for it was unnecessary or out of context. Your fears behave similarly in their “informing” you. All of the physical cues can be handy to any Role, but we believe these shared here are helpful specifically. We encourage you to discern this for yourselves. We will conclude this topic. We will now open for questions. [ludmila] Many of us will be meeting up in NYC in a few weeks. Were we part of the Alexandrian Mystery School, or some other study group, and if so what is the agenda for our meeting up with each other at this time? [Michael_Entity] Yes, all of you here [in the chat room] were in some way linked to the Alexandria School, but this has no bearing on your gathering in New York City. Your gathering is based on your search for your Entity Members. It is part of your paths as Older Souls and many of you are ready. We could say your only agenda is in validating what many of you have experienced as Essence Recognition. This will catapult many of you into a greater acceptance of self and your individual paths. Some of you are already aware of this, but your contact with each other, even electronically, is changing you. If you choose, trust the embrace of your old friends. [Az61] I am wondering about the sunken Russian Nuclear submarine, the men aboard, etc. I get the feeling that this incident has to do with Russia’s collective evolution after communist rule. Can you comment on it? [Michael_Entity] This event appears to have two levels/angles since one was karmic while the other symbolic. Karmically, this was a group of fragments choosing this as a means to balance previous ship sinking Karma. Nearly all involved have created deaths due to drowning an anonymous vessel. The symbolic level is in the humbling of the search and rescue efforts to require an admission of need for help. This helps move maturity in many directions. As we have said, this period of time recently has been a period of time to ASK for help. It is part of a global experience. This sinking symbolized this to a great degree for many. [Jan] What is the task phrase of Entity 3 in Cadre 1. Also what are the positive and negative poles of Entity 3 (Cadre 1). [Michael_Entity] It could be described that the Task of Entity 3 in your Cadre is “to present alternative angles on reality.” The Positive and Negative Poles of any Entity 3 are +Enterprise and -Versatility. These poles indicate the ability of Entity 3’s position within the Cadre to manifest cohesively any imaginative idea or to manifest them in pieces without depth. Imagine the differences between a complete stage production vs a variety show with no discernible theme. Entity 3’s tend to leave the most records of a civilization behind. [Dewliet] Would Michael please comment on occurrences in other parallels that have an impact on my life now, and the manifestation of such impact? [Michael_Entity] Parallels without exception never impact another Parallel, except on an informational level. Random impact would defeat their point. What can occur though is a search, either done specifically as Personality using techniques for viewing the parallels, or on an Essence Level. This search, or openness, to the various Parallels can then be bridged into making an impact on you. The only way they impact you is through your search though, never as a “surprise” or random bleedthrough. Some of you are very open to your Parallels and have many conscious/unconscious receptors “checking them out” all the time. This still does not mean they impact you on their own, it simply means you are bridging the “gap” and allowing the affect based on information and choice “here”. In the case of the “washing” we spoke of earlier, that was not an indication of other parallels impacting you, but of THIS parallel’s comprehension of paths not chosen. This is occurring with you, too. This forum is not conducive to exploring your personal parallels, but we can work with you individually or when this forum is used for that topic specifically. [MaryBV] Could Michael please expand a bit on the information available about Entity 01, Cadre 01? Perhaps a bit more information on the agreements Terri has with her entity mates on the list, a bit more information on the “rift” in the She-hulks and what the “fight” is all about, and why re there no other Kings around from the entity? [Michael_Entity] In general, the fragment known as Terri is entertainingly creating a context to explore the strengths of being female and being “strong.” She will play out many instances where her private and public life will clearly be about serious decisions centered on her personal strength in the context of a woman. This is inspiring to many fellow Entity Mates and allows dialogue, support, camaraderie, and community to evolve into a definitely tangible space, internally and externally. There are too many individual Agreements to cover within this forum and many are quite personal and “private.” We will leave her discovery and choice to act on them to her. There is no real “fight” within Entity One, merely a rift in alignment. Some of Entity One is recovering from lives chosen that created a great deal of emotional pain in other lives. That part of the Entity is spending a great deal of this life healing and recovering, sometimes manifested in territorial and reactive ways, as those who were harmed are interacted with. Another part of the Entity, those you relate to, have a different rate of comprehension and healing, therefore the work of communion and reunion can occur more fluidly. As for the Kings, they will come. They are not missing. We have seen two more Kings looking at your list, females. We believe they will introduce themselves quite clearly on their own. [Note: Yes, Barbara/Bobbie is a King.] [Momhawk] Relating back to the E-report. I definitely got ‘hit’ last Sunday (very interesting info too btw…thank you :-)…Got hit 4th, 5th and 6th chakras, ie; bronchitis, sore throat, and head cold, all at once. Michael has stated that colds are often fear related. What ‘core’ or ‘central’ fear is this reflecting that I may be ‘dealing with’ currently? [Michael_Entity] This is not about Fear in this case, it is about mourning. Considering the amount of externalized energy you have expended toward the expectation of several changes, you finally allowed the energy to just move down to a tangible level to handle the mourning. There were many versions of you being explored over the past few months. Many of those “selves” will not manifest in “this” reality. You know this. In that knowing, there is mourning in the recognition of unmet expectations and paths that will simply not “fit” in right now. Your physical symptoms are your process of the past. We suggest you to allow your move forward be freed from the distractions of what has “gone wrong” in the past. Let your body work through this all, if you choose to, and trust that process. On your daily level then, approach ONE thing with enthusiasm and renewed inspiration. Just choose one thing. Allow yourself to be concerned all you want about many things, but include at least one thing that you will simply “know” will work out. Input all that is obviously necessary for that one thing, but “know” that whatever course it takes, you have decided it will be the “right” one, no matter what the expectation. We will close here. Goodnight.
February 25, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Parallels Note from Janet: This was a very early session and there is editing done by an unknown person to fill in gaps, which either occurred as part of the channeling or as part of transfer to a transcript. [Michael_Entity] Ok… Hello to all of you… What we'll do is start with the “weather forecast” as usual, reviewing a little on what might have happened for some of you over the past few weeks, then address the next few [weeks]. Again, for purposes of our introduction to this electronic medium in this fashion through this channel, we will remain open for questions, personal or otherwise, at the end. No topics, necessarily. We spoke last about your own futures being examined in terms of how you and Essence would like to show up, express yourselves, in the coming year. This is due, in part, to the natural energies of this year, as well as the fact that each of you will be “spinning off” aspects of yourselves for various purposes. What we saw as most indicative for you in this examination period, in terms of how you might be handling this, is through the “reflections” of your EXTERNAL environment. This period of time in your environment's reflection has become almost harshly “realistic”; nothing spared. We also mentioned to be on the lookout for Animals and Specifically Categorized Individuals (mentally, physically challenged, or those apparently “rejected” on the outskirts of your societies) as being highlighted symbolically. Some of you may have seen clear indications, while others simply noted, then moved on. Depending on your involvement with the SYMBOLS, either in dreams or in a situation in which you have been drawn, you may or may not be having a “serious” fluctuation of future probabilities. Here are the indications that your symbols were meaningful: 1. That it appeared, drawing your attention, surprisingly. 2. That it “stayed” with you, even if only for the day, but at least an extended time. It is that simple. There is one more indication of what your INDIVIDUAL shifts will be focusing on in the weeks ahead: Some of you are in a specific crisis. A personal crisis [seeming] to be a [repetitive or all-too-familiar] pattern. This, we would say, is the third SYMBOL for this transition ahead. Each carries meaning. Those who have had animals show up: You are moving toward more EARTH and ACTION-ORIENTED service in the year ahead, being very drawn out into the world. The way you have interacted with the Animal, or how it called your attention, lends you insight into how you will interact in the world as you, yourselves, are “called out” into [the world]. For those who saw or will see a preponderance of specifically categorized people, or challenged people: You will most likely be dealing with INNER CIRCLE service, taking care of interpersonal relationships, healing or tending to those closest to you. For those dealing with an extenuating circumstance, or Crisis, as a pattern: You are in the process of “upgrading” your beliefs. There will be “no room” in the months ahead for many of you to be distracted with “outdated” patterns. You are dealing with it either in one massive blow, or you will simply leave it for another lifetime. Now, beginning March 1, approximately, you all will enter this transitional phase, or NEXUS of Parallels. Each will enter at various points [in time], but the PAST few weeks, and actually most of the beginning of this year and the end of last year, you were doing the “research.” This NEXUS is where you begin to condense and manifest EXACTLY what Essence and Personality are striving to experience in the year ahead. There will be many “versions” of you “out there.” There is no need to be concerned with “how” this is, unless you choose to study the Physics of your Universe. The “YOU” you are most concerned with is the “one” you appear to be at any given moment. Now, before more details, if any, we will take questions in regard to this. We will add, briefly, that if [more than one] symbol shows up for you, it is simply an indication of your being involved [in each of these levels]. [IK] Can you suggest effective ways for moving through this nexus? [Michael_Entity] We just did. [IK] More specifically then? [Michael_Entity] Yes, but this would require a questioning of the specific symbol and its relation to you, your reaction/response to it, and our interpretation of that. What each of you can do is sit down with your symbols, if any, and examine what they may mean symbolically to you, what your reaction indicates (fearful, excited, exasperated, etc.), and what this all might mean to you personally. For example: Assuming an animal has shown up in your dream, you may interpret the animal personally, or look it up in an animal totem book, then add your actions/interactions/reactions/responses to the picture and make a story. AFTER there is clarity (and even if no clarity sets in), the actual NEXUS phase will find your “new” environment beginning to truly feel more “REAL” and needing to be “reckoned” with. It would be best to allow all EXTERNAL calls to your attention be taken seriously in the weeks ahead, as this is where your Work is. There is really no more that we can say without a detailed exploration of each of you. [ha] Why would it become desirable to “spin off” aspects of self, i.e., I'm in process of re-integrating spin-offs, why would it be beneficial to spin off more? [Michael_Entity] It would depend on your definitions of “Spin-offs”. Assuming [your definition is] the same, it will always be the case in any given lifetime that aspects of your Personality “spin off” into realities of their own. This is simply because Essence wants to not only experience EVERYTHING it intended (your TRUNK REALITY), but also all of the creative input from Personality. When you speak of integrating these Parallels [“spin-offs”], this may easily mean that other aspects of Personality [are moving] on, [being replaced]. Let us clarify something: Each Personality is composed of what we refer to as SUB-PERSONALITIES, aspects of “you” that make up who you are in various situations. Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE, virtual “sub-personalities” of the Essence. We realize this can be mind-boggling, but we assure you, you are not required to grasp this. That is what Essence does. You, as Personality, have only the life to contend with, not the creation of the Universal Schemes. Many of you will be bringing in aspects/parallels that have been off in their “own” realities for a while, and now are merging with “this one”, but we will discuss that at a later date. [ha] So when you mentioned at the beginning that we may be spinning off aspects of self, did this mean sub-personalities of self, or essence's sub-personalities? Also, if it is sub-personalities of self, where do those spin-offs go and what do they do? [Michael_Entity] We were referring to Essence “sub-personalities”. Sub-personalities of Self stay with you, present, and are called to the “surface” for your various situations. Multiple Personalities and Schizophrenia are the results of breakdown and non-communication between these sub-personalities, by the way. When you ask, “where do they go?,” the same similar event occurs on an Essence level: YOU and ESSENCE exist within the SAME SPACE. ALL the parallels exist within the same space, but “you” are at a different “frequency” for Essence. An easy way to visualize this: Imagine Parallels as being a conglomeration of colors on a single surface. THIS is how Essence “sees” it all at once, but when this conglomeration of color is [seen] through, for example, a BLUE lens, different colors are highlighted and others diminished. The SAME palette is there, but the FOCUS creates a different “dimension.” Other “lenses” would create similar results. “YOU” are a specific focus within the conglomeration of all the Parallels. This is a grand topic. [fg] M said, “Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE; virtual sub-personalities of the Essence.” What do you mean by virtual? [Michael_Entity] That was a convenience of speech. We choose our words carefully in many ways and this, we felt, carried the best impact as these “selves” are not easily verifiable. But it is only from the perspective of one self that these [other selves] would appear “virtual”. Did this answer your question? [fg] Yes, thanks. [Michael_Entity] We will continue if there are questions. [M6] Last week here at this time we had an interesting energy connection and conversation, though we weren't able to have the planned Michael channeling. Could you explain the connections and processes we were experiencing together? There was some channeling going on. [Michael_Entity] Your “connections and process” were exactly that. There are some of you with whom we have Agreements as Students, some as Channels. We have one Channel [that was present] we are working with and those with whom she has Agreements will find this format rewarding and experientially fulfilling. It appears you were a part of that process. Certain [fragments] will need to be connected with our Channel as we work through. Familiarity breeds success. It may be validating to know we were essentially present. [ha] It seems that I have an instigating personality. Lately, wherever I go, I seem to stir up discussions and connections. Is this part of my life-task? [Michael_Entity] You are this way in all of your lives in various forms. It is a favorite theme. You are not one to easily be appeased with pointlessness and dismissiveness. In this life, you have chosen Overleaves that keep that from happening, for the most part, and yes, it would have a part in your Life Task. [s5] When the libraries were burned at Alexandria, I am assuming much knowledge was destroyed. Can you tell us what some of that knowledge was? Have we as a culture rediscovered all, or is there something yet to reemerge? [Michael_Entity] To elaborate on what was lost would require a different forum, and we can address this in full, more elaborately, when more time is available. We will say, however, that most of that knowledge would be difficult to gather, except through channeling or other psychic endeavors. Even then, it is not guaranteed to be accurate. There are a few elements surfacing after the turn of the century that are material. [km] I am having much conflict with those I work with. I feel that it is positive, that I'm learning to “stand up for myself”. Then again, I may be acting from negative poles. Can you comment? [Michael_Entity] You are, indeed, reacting and expressing through the Negative Poles, but only as a path toward the Positive Poles. Your task in this situation is to RESPOND, rather than REACT. It is true that those involved are difficult in many ways, primarily due to abrasive Overleaves, but this is only highlighted as you explore your Self-Karma, centering around your own historic belief that you must “do the right thing.” It angers you to feel “pushed” past what you feel is “right.” This is merely a maturation process and indicates you are moving toward realization of internal security. There is much more to this, but this is start. [s0] It has been suggested that I write a book about my life, is this part of my life task? [Michael_Entity] It would be one way to express it, yes. There is no SPECIFIC route with which a LIFE TASK must be manifested. In fact, what is mostly misunderstood about a Life Task is that you SEEK it, or PURSUE it. In reality, you already DO it. It comes naturally. Incidentally, you are, in fact, in Agreement with several thousand Essences for a book. [fg] Are sound (physical or not) and material form connected? I.e. “in the beginning was the Word…” [Michael_Entity] Yes, Light, and indeed all of Physical Reality, is the result of Music and Math. All can be translated into these forms. This Universe is built on Music and Math, and your Physical Structures are based on Circles and Triangles. There are connections and cross references all through these terms. Another Grand Topic. [a5] How can one draw the wisdom, help, of cycled off (disincarnate) entity mates? I've heard they are around to assist. True? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course they are available. It is one of the easiest of all connections to call on. What makes it difficult is that most of the “wisdom” feels like “you.” Trusting your impulses, [inner] voices, magnetism; these are messages from Entity Mates who are in some way working with you. If you choose to give them a voice, as we have for ourselves through our channels, it would require a different approach, but the wisdom is available simply by asking. [km] What would be an important use of brainwave “EEG” technology? [Michael_Entity] We have no investments on the paths chosen to use this tool and we see it simply as a picture tool, a map. It may be used in whatever capacity a fragment or group may choose. There are many ways this can be applied. We will now comment that many of you have topics right here that may be of interest to you. We are aware this format is limited in our ability to respond adequately. If you would like any of these elaborated upon for your next gathering, simply ask or suggest your interest. We will move more quickly into a Topic in the future. Good Night.
