February 28, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. We will begin with a quick Energy Report for the weeks between March 2 through March 15. We had spoken of some “awe-inspiring” event, either private or public, that seemed to be generating for the Older Souls on the planet. We believed to this to have had some root in manifesting in February, but we do not see that this came to pass. We can NEVER predict an event; we can only share what we see as probabilities and even the highest probabilities are not to be relied upon, merely used as a guide. Because of the vague quality of this event and its potentially different meanings for each Older Soul, this makes it more difficult to gauge. At this point, we will merely point out that what we had seen as a probability, still is, but we can only say the time frame has extended for its manifestation. It is significant enough that many of you will easily report that something either privately, independently, OR something publicly, struck you with a moving sense of awe. We believe you will know that has happened synchronistically when several of you report similar experiences to each other. On other, more common levels, the energy in general seems stable and the focus is moving toward literally, the weather. Drastic shifts in temperature and climate seem to be the distraction over the next few weeks. As we have shared before, in other exchanges, the weather is directly linked to the basic, shared emotional state of a population. That emotional climate is then reflected in the weather. The delays in effect are varying from geographical location to geographical location, and population to population, but in general, the weather shows the emotional climate of the previous 3 months. In the United States, the Emotional climate of the West is usually around 6 months behind in the weather, while the East is sometimes less than 30 days. We will remind you, but will elaborate more in our next exchange, that the shared energy has so far been focused on the implementation of the GOAL for the year. As the season of Spring moves closer, a shift toward the MODE may alter many fragment's contextual focus. When we say the focus has been on the GOAL, we mean that the shared context has been about taking action, asking questions about what to DO, making changes in directions and plans, determining how what you are doing fits with what others are doing. When the shift of focus comes to the Mode, the context will be more about intimacy and relationships. We will conclude the Energy Report. We would like to note that included in the Energy of the planet at this time is a great deal of unrest from obvious areas and mentalities, but to report every potential disaster or attack would be useless to most of our students. We do not see a point in emphasizing the dangers of the Physical Plane in this context. We do not have to remind you that this time frame is not an easy one, nor a particularly peaceful one, in general. Attacks will happen. That is as useful as we can be in that area. We will now take questions. We understand this is in Open Floor evening, though we will also respond to questions about the energy report. [SusanSF] As to our community I’m sensing the same. A hidden has been uncovered that I want to respond compassionately. This is not a personal but a community I would like clarification on for All of us. It came from a validation from the astral dream time that could affect us All. [M_Entity] And what is your question, Susan? [SusanSF] Do I do anything about it or just let it ride? Or I can pass on to the next in queue. [M_Entity] Though we are not completely clear on your question, we do think you are referring to a phenomenon that is occurring for many of the Older Souls, which is an exploration of many potential catastrophes and disasters as they may manifest for people. [SusanSF] In our community…. [M_Entity] For some, the experiences are being taken literally as signs of potential disaster. This may or may not be true. We can only say that part of the evolution of an Older Soul is in learning to interpret his/her emotional realm and astral experiences in ways that are applicable to the life. In short, it is your choice in what to do with what you know. In most instances where a prophecy is valid, any verbal sharing of that knowledge is rarely heeded. Until intuition and dreams are commonly understood, and alarmists stop predicting catastrophes each month, most will not hear even the most founded warnings. [ludmila] What can you tell us about our individual guides and angels? Do they have overleaves and are they our discarnate ET's or TC's? [M_Entity] Guides do not have Overleaves. Unless you are referring to a Physical Plane Guide, such as a Tour Director, which we believe you do not mean. We do not differentiate between “angels” and “guides,” in terms of nonphysical support and assistance. Most of your more intimate and “felt” presences of Guidance do tend to come primarily from discarnate Entity Mates, Cadence Members, Essence Twins, Task Companions, and Cadre Mates. [ludmila] What is a tour director? [M_Entity] We would define a “tour director” as a human being in a position to direct a group of fragments through a popular setting, pointing out its history, features, and entertainment, etc. In general, ALL fragments have at least 3 nonphysical Guides. [MaryBV] Could Michael please tell me what percentage of Cadre 1, entity 1 is cycled off? Of those remaining on the physical plane, what is the average soul age? [M_Entity] We see currently that 23% of Cadre One, Entity One is Cycled Off. The average Soul Age is 3rd Old. We did not include those who are Cycled off in that average, though we did include those who are not extant, but still within the cycles of incarnation. [kathryn41] (If this is too personal, I will withdraw the question) Four of us in this community are questioning whether we are a working quadrate. We wish to know how best to determine if this is so, how to validate our relationships with each other, and, if we are a quadrate, how to gain a more a conscious awareness of our project. [M_Entity] We encourage you to assume you are a Quadrate. Following the draw to work or socialize in a certain group is where your answer lies. Within that exploration, your Tasks will become evident. The validation can be done internally and externally. Internal validation is simply that you have determined it is true; there is no need to “test” that knowing. External validation would be if the other fragments in the group agree with your perception and knowing. [SusanSF] Could that include true study, besides true work then? [M_Entity] True Validation includes BOTH internal and external. The way to bring to light the combined goal of the Quadrate is simply to determine if you share a common interest and project at all. Whoever appears to have been the initiation behind the group would share what she believes are valid aspirations for that group. Knowledge will, by default, step in to refine those ideas and aspirations. In response to Susan's sub-question: The “Trues” that support the Life Task/True Work would inherently be included, though not necessarily as obviously. [JNelson] What is guilt? [M_Entity] Guilt is pointless self-punishment. It is entirely based in Chief Feature. There are 7 Guilts, then, linked to each Chief Feature. It is a prolonged version of “learning a lesson.” We have shared extensively on this subject and Troy will include in this transcript a copy of our deeper treatment of that subject. [Talyn] Do our discarnate spirit guides ever “resign or hand us off” to a new guide during a single incarnation or lifetime? As in a prearranged “agreement” on the other side? Particularly if our task companions this lifetime are discarnate guides? [M_Entity] We would not describe a Guide as “handing you off” to another Guide, but there are Guides who are temporary, and Guides who are “permanent” for the life of the Fragment. Each Fragment has at least the 3 Guides permanently for the life. The three Guides are specifically related to the Centers/Axes. Each working with that element of that Fragment's life, such as the EMOTIONAL/Higher EMOTIONAL Guide, the INTELLECTUAL/Higher INTELLECTUAL, etc. [Talyn] So it would not be totally unusual to sense the presence of a newly discarnate recently deceased guide? [M_Entity] It is fairly unusual for a recently deceased Fragment to become a Guide, though it does happen, of course. In most cases, that which “feels” like a Guide is merely the etheric presence of the Personality remaining attached to the relative or friend as a means to help comfort in both directions. That is part of the process of the 7th Internal Monad. The successful completion of the 7th Internal Monad is not merely in dying; it is in comprehending the extended impact on those who were attached to that Personality. [LisaC] Is there anything in particular that Michael would like to impart to us here now, other than the e-report? (kind of a just-for-fun question ;-) [M_Entity] No. Though we make ourselves available as a teacher and share in high interactivity, we never solicit or determine a topic or “impart” without your questioning to generate the exchange. We have a lot to share; we have a lot to teach, and all of the questions have not been asked, but we have nothing personally to impart. [Val] Healing: I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves & others, physical and spiritual (Buddha, Jesus etc) many say they heal in the name of religious figures can you comment on this, and on what would you recommend to us in order to succeed in healing ourselves and others: from Mike [M_Entity] “Religious Figures” give “permission” to a Fragment to use energy that is easily available already. That method helps a fragment “call on” the healing energy of the Higher Moving energy (Buddha) or Higher Emotional (Christ), both linked to the theme of the Logos taught through the Manifestations of the Infinite Soul in your example. Because most Fragments believe deeply that they are less-than, it makes sense to call upon a “higher power” for use of energy in healing. In truth, that energy, however accessed, will always be from the source of your own Essence. The greatest method of healing, in terms of channeling a specific energy, has been for Older Souls to think in terms of RESONATION, not “sending” energy to another. Creating a sustained resonance of healing gives the fragment focused upon an opportunity to align their own energy with that resonance. Those who are sensitive enough can sense in another where the energy is blocked or inhibited, can then generate a resonance for the ill one, and allow that Fragment to use it as needed. We remind you that not all illnesses and disease are necessarily interested in being “healed” by the common standards. There are beautiful experiences for a soul in many sicknesses and diseases. Knowing this, a form of healing can sometimes NOT be about alleviating the illness, but discussing and comprehending the impact of that illness. [sam-nemo] How can we attract guides, people or entities with similar goals to ours? [M_Entity] There are parts of the life in which the Personality manages, and parts in which Essence manages. “Attracting” Fragments, physical or nonphysical, is managed by Essence. Personality need only communicate to Essence if there is a particular interest determined. Communicating to Essence is as simple as thinking. If you choose to be clearer, set aside time before and/or after sleep to softly communicate to Essence what you seek. Essence has a limited “view” of the lifetime, and without the conscious input from Personality, the lifetime can be in agreement with or against the wishes of a Personality. When Personality is clear in what it wants, or seeks to attract, Essence is there. We will conclude here, then. Good night.
Michael Speaks 080909 Open Floor [QUESTION] Are there 7 or MORE different types of kingdoms operating on earth -- ie; humanoids, elementals, faeries, angels, etc., and, blendings of them & if so, is this connected to DNA; or what are the 7 kingdoms on earth at this time; like minerals/plants ? etc., it would be nice to know more about this earth, we have all chosen to share together; without plants - we can't breathe, without minerals-we do NOT have good health - so; we must all be interlinked, in some way. [Michael Entity] What we describe as "Kingdoms" are the levels of development of chakras, centering, and sentience within various groups of lifeforms within a planetary system. There are, indeed, 7 Kingdoms. The association of "elementals, faeries, angels, etc." are seen a bit differently from our perspective, but there is some validity within these more mythical interpretations. Ocean and Mineral Kingdom; Vegetation Kingdom; Insect Kingdom; Cold-Blooded Kingdom; Bird Kingdom; Lower Mammal Kingdom; Higher Mammal Kingdom. These are the 7 Kingdoms of Earth's Physical Plane in terms of sentient development and exploration. For each Kingdom there are a multitude of Energy Rings, Cadres, or Entities working within those Kingdoms as a form of support, creativity, and direction for that kingdom. All Sentient Humans have explored each of these Kingdoms before incarnating into the Human cycle of lives. In earlier stages of a planet's hosting Sentience, the Energy Rings, Cadres, and Entities managing these Kingdoms are far more obvious, especially when Sentience is living closely with any one of those Kingdoms. These Energy Rings, Cadres, and Entities managing the Kingdoms are not taking form, but exploring or directing the development of that Kingdom, and when sensed by Humans, are often interpreted into mythological forms. So while we would not say that there is a literal line of faeries or elves or elementals, we would say that these interpretations are not wholly inaccurate to how the non-physical energies work within a Kingdom. Human imagination fills in the more elaborate, magical parts to account for the lack of practical understanding. However, we would say that the imaginative stories serve a practicality in itself, in that it hands down a personification of these energies so that Humans can work with those energies in a way that "makes sense" to them. As a planet's dominant Sentience matures, and the influx of new Sentience slows or stops, so does this network of forces that nurture your planet's kingdoms. At some point in every Sentient species' development, these forces stop taking care of the planet, and the dominant species must then do the work of caring for the planet. It is not unlike the way your own bodies are cared for by forces greater than your own until you reach a certain age, whereupon you must then take care of yourselves. To that point, we say that the realms of faeries, elves, elementals, angels, etc., (however you interpret these forces) are waning, and the shift of responsibility is upon your species now to pick up that line of care and nurturing for the planet and its Kingdoms. [QUESTION] What are the 7 levels of the mind? [Michael Entity] If we define "mind" as that realm of cohesion among all bodies (emotion, intellect, moving, and the higher counterparts), we would could then describe these 7 Levels as: Tangibility; Symbolism; Comprehension; Transition; Telepathic; Intuitive; Wholeness. These 7 Levels could be described many ways, but these are the words we can get through this channel at this time. We will elaborate a bit on each, as well. Tangibility might be the level of Mind that brings cohesion through what can be touched and is tangible. Symbolism might be the level of Mind that brings cohesion through interpretation of symbols as represented in events, patterns, and behaviors. Dreams might be included here. Comprehension might be the level of Mind that grasps the concept of probabilities and the true impact of Choice. Transition might be the level of Mind that that brings cohesion through grasping the patterns of the past and how this contributes to the present. The level of Mind that can change directions and pivot based on what has been learned to date. Telepathic levels of Mind might be the cohesion that is brought through the recognition and application of the 3 levels of Truth (personal, global, universal) as a means of connecting to other Minds. Intuitive levels of Mind might be the cohesion that is brought through the transcendence of logic and reason, to the direct perception of the larger contexts of any situation, event, or people. Wholeness levels of Mind might be the cohesion that is brought by the capacity to absorb, adapt, and embrace any variations on reality, experiences, and directions brought about by the self, others, or the free-unfolding of life. [QUESTIONS] Is Tangibility also what one might term "creating reality"? [Michael Entity] We would agree, though this phrase could be said of any level of Mind described above. Specific to Tangibility, it might be said that Tangibility would "create reality" through the limitations of what one can DO with what one HAS. To put that another way, it could be said that Tangibility is the level that says, "I can create with this hammer because I have a hammer" whereas another level of Mind, such as that of Comprehension, might say, "I can create with this hammer, but I can also get a saw and drill and materials so that I can create even more." The average fragment extant is now in Transition levels of Mind. Our average Student is in the Telepathic levels of Mind. [QUESTION] Hello Michael. Can you talk about the difference between Faith vs. Trust, particularly in regards to Life or "The Universe"? Michael says blind Faith is a negative pole thing, but I have trouble seeing how Trust in something as intangible as "The Universe" is not the same thing as Faith. Please elaborate? [Michael Entity] We see the difference between Faith and Trust as vast. Faith inherently asks of you not to question, and further to turn a blind eye to any discrepancies between what you expected, intended, or wanted vs what you experience. Trust, however, is based in experience that has already been gained, and allows room for questions and redirection from the less-desirable. This is not to say that people will use these words in the same way that we define them; in fact, many use these words interchangeably, with Trust being the more "new age" replacement for Faith. There will always be steps forward into the unknown that require Faith or Trust, depending on your preference. However, Faith would be a free-fall jump into the unknown, whereas Trust would allow for you to use tools that are familiar to you, and allows for a discerning eye along the way. In short, Faith is resignation; Trust is participation. [QUESTION] Yes, I suppose my question has much to do with how to "Trust" the unknown. [Michael Entity] If you are moving into "the unknown," then the Trust that one can pull up would come from experiences that are relevant to the current step into this unknown. For instance: The unknown may be lying ahead, or around you, but it is almost certainly the case that you have stepped into the unknown in your past, as well. Trust, then, could come from the fact that you survived the unknown before, so it is possible that you can do that again. Trust could come from the fact that despite your steps into the unknown, you know of resources for support and guidance that can help you along the way. Trust does not ask you to hope for the best; it allows you to help create the best, as best you can, if you choose to do so. Keep in mind that Surrender is also a form of Trust, which is the recognition of forces larger than your capacity to control, but you know you can do your best to navigate within those forces. For instance, you may not be able to stop a hurricane, but you can Trust that you can do what you can do to protect yourself in that context. [QUESTION] This may be a long shot but I thought worth it if Michael can comment on it, otherwise, you can move on to the next question: I would be interested in Michael's thoughts on something known as the webbot project run by Cliff High at www.halfpasthuman.com. This project appears to have the capability of taking a sampling of the global consciousness and predicting future events. Is there something analogous to a bow shock wave which travels forward and backward in time as a result of major future events that can be picked up on by our global consciousness in the present which permits us to glimpse these future events before they happen? If so, is this due to an awakening in our consciousness as our Earth passes through the galactic plane and its exposure to higher energies? [Michael Entity] As consciousness grows, so does the capacity for recognizing patterns. As the capacity for recognizing patterns grows, so does the capacity for anticipating patterns. As the capacity for anticipating patterns grows, so does the capacity for defining patterns. As the capacity for defining patterns grows, so does the capacity for altering patterns. As the capacity for altering patterns grows, so does the lack of necessity for recognizing, anticipating, defining, and altering. With that in mind, we would say that the theory is fairly sound, as you describe it, though we would not attribute it to any effect from a "galactic plane" or "exposure to higher energies." It is simply a matter of evolved learning and observational capabilities. Your Species no longer throws rocks at the moon during an eclipse, or spears at thunder, not because of some cosmic shift, but simply because eventually someone realized it was silly to do so. By extension, the patterns that are in effect that can be observed in collective consciousness are real, and while the capacity for recognizing, anticipating, defining, and altering these patterns are at various points of development among you, Humans are well on their way to predictive capabilities that would be on par with weather reports. They would need adjustments and updates as each moment/day passes, but could be fairly accurate to a similar degree that weather reports are accurate. Once the patterns of consciousness are found to be legitimately and relevantly connected to patterns of weather, Humans would reach a new paradigm of awareness about the future, past, and state of collective consciousness. [QUESTION] In MFM, it was mentioned that Carl Jung was one of the “mavericks” of psychology in that he incorporated “mysticism” into psychology, which so few westerners given credence too. Of course there are many schools of psychological thought regarding counseling individuals. Psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioral theory, humanistic/existential theories are but a few examples. Given that psychology, at least in the west, is still so concerned with “measurable” scientific facts, how can one really tap into the ‘spiritual’ while still being “accepted” by the scientific community? Of course, assuming this is possible, or even desirable for that matter. I know of the work of Viktor Frankl, Ernesto Spinelli and the aforementioned Carl Jung; but it seems they are still largely disrespected by the psychological community. Can Michael provide insight into this topic? For example: who are the “psychological mavericks” of the 21st century who are (or may be in the near future) on the cusp of making real progress on the process of counseling the WHOLE person, spirit included, rather than merely some fragments (no pun intended) of the personality that most of the “scientific” theories like psychoanalysis and cognitive behavioral therapy seem to emphasize? I realize this is several questions in one, so it should be noted that I’m not looking for specific answers to each part as much as I am looking for concepts or psychologists to investigate regarding spiritual counseling or what is also called existential or phenomenological psychology, as I feel that counseling one while incorporating the spiritual can potentially do more lasting good than a lot of what passes as psychological intervention currently. Of course this is all speculation on my part, but was curious about Michael's input nonetheless. Sorry for the lengthy question; tis the curse of my scholary-ness I think. [Michael Entity] In terms of practice, there are many who incorporate "spirituality" into whatever method of Psychological Counseling they use, as long as that spirituality is translated into useful terms for the one being counseled. Others incorporate spirituality in a way that is simply an undercurrent within the terminology of the psychological method. For most who truly wish to help another, it is nearly impossible to avoid some form of spirituality, though it is useful to keep this to a minimum until the more tangible elements of the psyche have been explored. Though this channel is limited in terms of psychological theories and descriptions, we can say that Gestalt Psychology is close to "spiritual" within the limitations of the psychological field. We will add that as the Mature paradigm settles in, so would the expansion of concepts within the realm of Psychology. For now, if one were looking for counseling, we would suggest being less concerned with the method, and more concern with your resonance to the individual counselor. We would also add that this division of spirituality from counseling goes both ways, so to speak, in that if one were to go to a proclaimed "spiritual counselor," the more tangible elements of the psyche might be ignored just as smugly as the less-tangible are ignored in Psychology. [COMMENT] definitely true, and there is certainly plenty of literature about the more tangible aspects. [Michael Entity] Those we might consider to be "mavericks" are publicly unknown at this time, but if all moves forward as intended, would most likely rise to awareness within the next 20 years or so. We can also suggest looking back at our 7 Levels of Mind. You would see quite clearly where any psychological theory or method might fall, and this would give you a fair gauge of the higher levels of counseling or theories that might be available. The "mavericks" we see who may move psychology forward to include higher levels of Mind, if you will, would be those who move the field to embrace the Telepathic levels. Currently, it appears to us that most theories and practices remain at Transition levels and below, which do work for most. Good Day to each of you. Goodbye.
