OMW - Nov 17, 2012 - Your Aura (Part One) Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, and we will begin our discussion about the concept of Auras. There are many teachings that focus more directly upon this concept, and many of them are fairly detailed and valid as to how we experience this subject, so what we offer today is a perspective that can be put alongside any of your favorite teachings on this subject for comparison and validation. First, we will define the Aura as an umbrella term to catch all aspects of the Body that go beyond that which can be seen. In more technical terms, these are layers of the body that help to generate and sustain "down" through spectrum the more tangible Body/s that you know so well. In even more accurate terms, these could be said to be your version of every Plane that exists. In other words, your Physical Body is YOUR VERSION of the Physical Plane. The Physical Body that you know is your Essence's idea given form, but its condition, state of health, growth and maintenance are your own actions, ideas, and feelings given form. The Physical Body at any given point is the end result of all actions, ideas, and feelings. Therefore, it is not the body that emits an aura, but your aura that emits a body. What most people see is the densest part of the Aura, but your tangible, Physical body, technically, is still just a part of the Aura. That is because "you" are a projection of Essence into matter. In truth, "you" are not separate from this, and never would be, even in the Personalities who are most-rejecting of Essence. That person, Personality, and Body would not be able to exist if not for its being an extension of Essence. It is helpful to explore the duality of Personality and Essence for the sake of embracing and Manifesting Essence, if one so chooses to do so, but it will always be true that they are, technically, one and the same. YOU are ESSENCE, even if not Manifesting Essence. All forms in the Physical Plane are an emission from another plane. There is nothing of the Physical Plane that is not originated in the "non-physical." [GeraldineB] Question: Does a developing fetus use the mother's essence until the baby is both born AND inhabited by its own Essence? MEntity: The entirety of the Physical Plane is merely ideas and feelings given form, if you will. There are variations in how the development of a fetus comes about. In most instances, though this fetus is technically an extension of the Essence wishing to be born, it is still merely an extension of the body of the mother until the first breath, and is not fully representative of the originating Essence until after 7 years of life. There are many fetuses that are generated without any Essence ever intending to use them, and these are extensions of the mother's body. [Diane_HB] Are those fetuses then miscarried? [Maureen] or stillborn? MEntity: In most instances, yes, or aborted in other ways. When a fetus is taken through birth without an Essence wishing to have used it, it can be sustained by the mother's Essence only for the first 7 years, but this is usually not sustained for more than 3. [Diane_HB] Wow [GeraldineB] Is this the cause of Personalities being stuck in 2nd IM? MEntity: No body is born without representing an extension of an Essence, but it can be born without a commitment to living. Geraldine, in what way do you mean your question. Please elaborate. [GeraldineB] I should have said: When a baby does finally get an Essence later in life, i.e., up to 7 years -- is this the primary cause of being stuck in 2nd IMs -- i.e., very tied to the mother MEntity: No. Not necessarily. When an Essence "walks in," it will live as any other Essence, even with that delay in living through that body. The Instinctive Center for that Body would be extracted to the Essence who had been sustaining that body, and a new one "inserted." The first 7 years are quite easy to "erase" in terms of "baggage," whereas a Walk-In who enters later in the life would have more of the life experiences stored in the cells of that body, and spend up to 7 years sifting through those. We digress. [Maureen] Michael -- can we assume that an actual "walk-in" will also have a different aura? If so -- that would take some adjusting for the "grown-up" body. [Maureen] Michael -- if you want to continue -- please save that question for the end. [MEntity] That would be correct, Maureen, but in all Walk-Ins, there is a shared transitional period between the two Essences who negotiated the exchange. Or the body would die. [Maureen] Thank you MEntity: To continue: As the aura emits a body, the health of that most tangible body is directly connected to what is being fed into the emission, if you will. In the most obvious sense, how you treat your body, how you feed it, what you feed it, how you comfort it, etc., feeds into the health and shape of the body, but this is also true of what you feed it in terms of ideas and emotions. The more intangible the source, the more long-term the impact. In other words, what you DO with your body makes a difference in how your body looks, feels, and lives, and however long of a time you may think that may take, your thoughts and feelings take "even longer" to move into form, and to move out of form. This is why treatments of illness can often require processes that address the intellect and emotion far longer than the physical treatments. For most fragments, the gestation period of the body that is being used for Sentience tends to be the time frame of cycles for coming into physicality. In other words, emotions and thoughts that are sustained for more than 9 months find their way into "birth" into the body. This can tend to mean that it takes AT LEAST that long for healing and transformation of any ideas or feelings looking to be healed or transformed. This is good to know when taking up any effort to make a difference to your body, whether in shape, health, diet, mood, habit, etc. The more tangible parts of the Aura are those that relate to what you relate to as the Action/Physical, and the Emotional/Astral, and to some great extent the Intellectual/Causal. The visibility of these layers is valid, and each has counterparts that are tangible to the Physical Plane, literally or intuitively. For those who worry about whether they can see or not see Auras, we can say to you that your greatest concern is what you "read" in the aura that IS your body that you know. You do not need to see or read the colors and shapes that show up as part of the higher auras. Learning to listen to your body, and to treat it with long-term care, is one of the greatest gifts of "aura reading" one can develop. EVERY fragment has this capacity. Between the Physical and the Astral Bodies is the Etheric Body. The Etheric Body is where the more intangible and tangible is processed and filtered. It is the last stop for filtering and processing of Emotions and Thoughts that are coming into density. It is the body that is most directly linked to the health of the body, and gives rise to everything you know of as your body. It is a kind of matrix for the body, a template that holds the body together in space and time. It could be said to be the atmosphere for your body, and it can be toxic or pure, and usually a mixture. It is a representative of your Instinctive Center. This is the body that remains in space and time, even if that part of the Physical Body is removed, such as in the "phantom limb" effect. In some parallels, and in many probable futures, this Etheric Body is measurable and practical in its use for regrowing lost limbs and organs, or for promoting the growth of them if missing. Most of you can see this Etheric Body, and can do so by holding your hand out over a blank wall in a dimly-lit room. Allowing your eyes to fall into a kind of peripheral vision, or passive state, you may begin to see a blue-ish glow emit from your hand and arm. This is NOT the optical illusion that is left by the hand movements against your sight. The optical illusion is fairly gray in its visual, but the Etheric would be in some hue and brightness of blue. [GeraldineB] Since the Etheric Body is part of our Physical Body -- is it included in our DNA, even if not visible or known at this time? MEntity: DNA is in the Etheric, as DNA is also an extension of the higher layers of the aura, but not the other way around. In other words, DNA has its own Etheric body, if you will. It is a replica of whatever it is holding in time and space. [GeraldineB] and this is why limbs can eventually be regrown MEntity: Yes. [Diane_HB] When healers say they can "update" their DNA, are they really referring to the etheric DNA? MEntity: This is already a natural state for some species on your planet, and would eventually be replicated in your own species through the proper use of electrical stimulations. [Diane_HB] oooh [Maureen] Is it Salamanders that can re-grow a tail that has been clipped off? [Martha] starfish too, right? [GeraldineB] all lizards, I think MEntity: Diane, we do not know what is meant by "updating of DNA." There are many who presume to "unlock" various "advanced" elements of one's DNA, but this is a bogus notion in terms of doing so through one's mere intention. [GeraldineB] even snakes regrow their tips MEntity: Altering one's DNA through intention is about as useful as willing yourself a third arm if you did not already have one. [GeraldineB] LOL [Diane_HB] lol [Maureen] LOL MEntity: It is not that it is impossible to have a third arm, but if it is not already in place, it would take a great deal of effort and intervention to obtain this. It is true that the DNA of an individual can be altered within the lifetime, but we can discuss that subject in another exchange. [GeraldineB] Maureen -- add it to the list ? MEntity: The Astral or Emotional Body is the next-closest to the Physical Body in terms of its density. Its counterparts in the Physical show up as colors, hues, and a kind of various density of fog. This can be intuited through the imagination, or literally seen with the eyes in some individuals. The Astral Body is reflective of the Emotional state of any individual at any given time. It can change and vary on a constant basis. There are three layers to this Body in the Aura: The most-immediate layer is the CHARACTER layer. This is the layer that carries the more long-term moods and feelings that have generated from that person. This is the layer that most sense upon meeting someone for the first time. No matter how delightful or unpleasant someone may be in a social situation, this level of CHARACTER can be sensed, and it may not reflect the more immediate presentation. This layer is where all Agreements are stored, managed, activated, updated, and abdicated. The GOAL is most infused or "programmed" in the Physical Body, whereas the MODE is most infused, or "programmed" in this layer of the Emotional/Astral Body. These are not exclusive to these Bodies, but these are where they tend to function from. This is also where one's active Karma and Self-Karma are stored, managed, updated, or abdicated. This is the layer of the self that gets shared as one "gets to know" another. The Soul Age can be read from this layer. The colors here tend to be fairly steady in mix and hue, but do change as various Agreements are fulfilled and altered. And with any great shifts in perspective of Soul Age or Level. [GeraldineB] Do you read this layer when answering Profiles? MEntity: No. We read the Akashic Records. But many of our channels read from this Body of a student. [GeraldineB] Is this part of the reason for requesting a photo? MEntity: If photos are used, or requirements for in-person, it would tend to be the channel reading and interpreting. This layer is also where one stores and processes most dreams. The next layer "up" in this Astral Body would be the MOOD layer of the fragment. This is far more changeable and colorful, and is less-dense, more immediate in reflection of the emotional processes of the fragment. This is the layer that is often "presented" to others, and more directly in control from the Personality. When your mood changes, so does this layer of the body. This layer helps pick and choose from the Character layer what to deal with, what to ignore, what to consciously process, what not to process, etc. Whatever it is "in the mood" to tend to. Consider the Character Layer to be the Moving Part of the Emotional Body, whereas the Mood Layer is the Instinctive Part of the Emotional Body. It is often driven by aims toward emotional pleasure and away from emotional pain. The highest layer [Contemplation Layer] of the Astral Body then is the Intellectual Part of the Emotional Body, and this is the layer where shift begins from something simply being a theory or idea to becoming a belief. This is where one begins to prove or disprove one's ideas about life, self, and others. In terms of how this works as a whole, once one has built a case for an idea and emotionally charges it, it then moves down into the Mood, and eventually into the Character level. If one is working with others to help alter beliefs, it would need to be on this layer, because once it is past this layer, it cannot be changed, only counteracted. A new belief would need to be brought in, and from there, the choice for which to use would make the difference. Keep this in mind for your own work on altering your repetitive behaviors that reinforce beliefs that you wish to change. Let them be. Allow them to exist. You cannot change them. But you CAN add new ones, and the focus on that is far more effective than battling your unwanted ones. In the end, the effect is the same as altering a belief, but in technical terms, one can only add new ones from which to choose. [GeraldineB] So, for my attempt to quit smoking, it should be to DO something else, rather than stop/prevent smoking? MEntity: In terms of unwanted habits, the physical counterpart can be halted, and that is the "easy" part, but the belief will not change that motivated and secured the habit, which is why new habits might form around that belief, even if more acceptable in form. [GeraldineB] thank you MEntity: In terms of beliefs, whatever motivated you to secure this unwanted habit as a reflection of that belief cannot be changed, but new ones can be added, or brought to light, that allows for greater choice of emphasis. Smoking is almost always a habit born of the belief that one is ultimately alone, on their own, and profoundly lacking intimacy. [GeraldineB] Ahhh . . .when I was choosing double Arrogance MEntity: It is a means for filling the void in the Emotional Center, in the most literal way possible. Inhaling the smoke soothes this void. Though the social contracts are changing now, this habit also helped to bring about the interaction with others that may have been craved, as it was a social habit. [Maureen] very interesting [Martha] all smoking - tobacco and marijuana? MEntity: Only habitual smoking. For those who wish to stop smoking, it can be greatly effective to interact with others when one would otherwise smoke, or to acknowledge the truth of one's importance to others. [GeraldineB] thank you -- I see how it's been playing to isolate me due to the current restrictions and reactions [Maureen] no wonder it's such a hard habit to give up! MEntity: It can be interesting to play out the physical motions that have become familiar with smoking, while lying down new beliefs through considering one's importance, or socializing in whatever way is accessible at the moment. It may then become more obvious that you simply wanted company, not a cigarette. It can become its own meditation. When one is working to build new beliefs, it can be helpful to imagine this layer of your body as a colorful and playful space full of symbols for arranging new beliefs. For instance, if no one is available to talk or socialize, let yourself fake smoke, while playing out social scenarios in your imagination, such as meeting people you think you may never meet, or hugging those you miss, or talking freely in ways that you normally would not. Etc. But we digress. If each of you would like to examine your own Emotional/Astral layers of the body, here are some ways for doing so: First: establish color associations with feelings. These are fairly set for your species now, and can be explored through many teachings on color and mood, but also through one's understanding of Chakras and the color associations there. Second: allow your imagination to interpret your loved ones, relationships, feelings, moods, and experiences as those colors. Let yourself get a sense of what color your day is, what color a relationship is, what color your project or idea is, etc. LET YOURSELF have these colors. This means, do not push for them, and do not presume there is a right or wrong color. Simply invite it. In your worst-case scenario of blocking imagination, it could be said that if you simply cannot imagine these or see them, ask yourself what they would be IF YOU COULD. Using your color associations, or chakra association, you can begin to build up a fairly good idea about what your Aura "looks like". For now, we will suggest an experiential experiment right now for you to try: Give yourself some breathing room, breathe deeply no less than three times, eyes closed, and let your imagination explore your body, looking for a fairly solid area of color or colors, and note those colors, and where around your body you are "seeing" these. It may come up as a blob to your left, or a soft hint behind you, or a rich color surrounding you, but there is no one way any of you should expect to see this. Once you have a description, you may share it here, if you wish. [Diane_HB] I have a strip of red on the outer edge of my aura at chest height, going all the way around. Also a sky blue blob right on the third chakra/stomach. [Martha] green and purple, but I'm having trouble concentrating as Morgan is here and the TV is on [Maureen] I got soft pink all around -- then it changed to soft blue and purple -- and I had green around the eyes [Maureen] actually -- I got a blue blob on my 3rd chakra as well Diane! [Maureen] LOL [Diane_HB] cool ? [Martha] the green and purple are layered all around, purple is a muted fuschia [Maureen] I thought it might be indigestion! [Maureen] ? [Diane_HB] LOL MEntity: If you choose not to submit a response, please indicate so that we may continue. [GeraldineB] I'm not seeing anything [ClaireC] I'm out MEntity: We offered up this experiment for the point of two things: one, is for you to "see" where our teaching is in the Character of your Aura, and the other is for the experience of how easily or challenged you may be in calling up this imagination on the spot. If you saw Blue in your visualization, you found our part of your Aura, and where our teaching is most used by you. For most fragments, anything associated with what has become a personal guidance system, or teaching, can be found in or around any Blue. [Martha] what's the name for the third layer? We have Character, Mood, and ? MEntity: Character, Mood, and Contemplation Layers. [Martha] Hmmm, my purple was closest to the body, with green as the second layer. I did see some blue early on but when I had to visualize a body to get specific about position I didn't see it MEntity: If you did not "see" it, it is not that it was not there, but that your awareness went to something else. [Martha] yeah, I saw a flash of it at first, a rich blue MEntity: Blue, or one's teaching, is often a part of Green and Purple because of various factors. [Maureen] The colour at my 3rd chakra is a rich deep blue. [Diane_HB] I also saw dark blue going into purple from the eye level up. [Martha] 6th and 7th chakras are traditionally indigo and purple, right? MEntity: For this experiment, after you have a clear description of colors and location, explore various correlations of these color meanings, and how the location may relate to the nearest chakra. Keep in mind that you are looking at the CHARACTER layer, so you are looking at your long-term states of emotion that make up who you are. Your visualizations may change in your assessment of this, but that is not because the body changed, but that you are exploring different angles on it. To explore your MOOD Layer, one of the most tangible ways to do so is through a synchronistic oracle system, such as Tarot, or color-coded cards, or the drawing of keywords, or some other system of randomness that gives you insight into this layer of your emotional body. We have yet to cover the Causal Body, and to go into more exploratory and applicable ways to understand the Aura, so we are arranging with Troy for a "part two" on this subject, for this particular group. It will be scheduled by consensus among you for when this would be. [Maureen] Michael -- would you answer my question about my old friend Geraldine? An old friend Geraldine Smith-Stringer (Mature 5, Server-cast Artisan) could see the Aura remarkably well. The colours she would see represented what you brought in at birth. If she saw photos from throughout your lifetime – she could tell when you had “blocked” certain natural abilities and the times when they had flourished. Because of her influence I tend to pick up “colours” the same way. What layer was she seeing/reading? MEntity: In response to the question, this could be of the Character Layer, but it also sounds like layers from the Causal Body, if these are determined as having been in place since birth. If you are having trouble with using the imagination to "see," it is not a matter of anything other than personal preference. Some do not trust the imagination, or have, long ago, written it off as dangerous territory. Beyond that, some may simply have a hard time visualizing, which means that it may be more helpful to explore the aura in more appealing symbolic forms, such as foods, smells, animals, etc. In other words, IF my aura were to be made up of foods, what comes to mind, and where is that on my body? Or what animals come to mind when I think of my heart, my head, my body as a whole, etc. (Note: It was decided by Michael that there would be a Part 2 or follow up session on the Character Layer. Troy was fading. glb) Note: This session continues in OMW: Your Aura (Part Two).
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- September 2000] [MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people’s auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy’s aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally? [Michael_Entity] The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person’s Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen. A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here. In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy’s Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed represented the release of minor beliefs from Troy’s Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these are released, even if only temporarily. As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side.
MMW - April 15, 2017 - Your Crystalline Bodies/Facets Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Today's topic has two layers to it and we will likely focus on only one of those layers. One layer is the more applicable and useful layer that brings insight into the dynamic of evolution across incarnations. The other layer is the inner workings, geometry, and multidimensional visualizations that are necessary to understand how this works. We may address some of the latter, but will focus on the more applicable and useful layer. This is similar to saying that we will help you navigate to the light switch, but leave the discussion of the workings of electricity for another day. Every lifetime is microcosmic evolution from Infant to whatever the most-recent Soul Age/Level/Internal Monad was that was successfully completed. This is similar to how the actual body is conceived and grown in the womb, rapidly moving through every evolutionary stage of the Human Body to reach its most current state before birth. There is no lifetime that starts "in the middle" of evolution. Every lifetime "starts from scratch," if you will. There is no shortcut to the evolutionary replay in the womb, but the fluidity of soul and consciousness allows for a shorter and shorter return to one's most-recent position of individual evolution in spirit. When one is born, the only element that is carried over from another life is the Instinctive Center. It could be said that, of course, your Essence is a consistency, but because the Personality must remember to Manifest Essence, the Essence is not considered a consistency that is carried over. There are many lifetimes when Essence is completely rejected for the entire lifetime. But everything is recorded in the Instinctive Center and accessible to Essence at various points in the life and after the life, so nothing is lost. Today we are going to go a bit beyond the general data that is stored in the Instinctive Center that contributes to your themes, patterns, past life resonance, etc. In addition to this unbroken, consistent, persistent storage of experiences across lifetimes in the Instinctive Center is what we will describe as the "Crystalline Body." When one is fragmented in Tao your "spark" or Essence takes on a Role in the universe, a Role in Essence. This Role is your round-trip vehicle, so to speak, from Tao and back to Tao. Your Role in Essence then fragments into incarnations, or Personalities, across Physical lives. Your Astral Body then acts as your persistent vehicle that allows for the return to Essence between every incarnation. This is rarely mentioned, but your first incarnation does not always have any other bodies beyond the Physical and Essence. It is rare, but some first lifetimes do not have Astral Bodies at all. The reason is that they must be grown. There are templates in place in every Plane that "hold a place" for the anticipated evolution of all of your high bodies, but they are not born from your fragmentation. They are born from your evolution. The first formation of your Astral Body comes with your first inner conflict. Your Astral Body is generated from what we refer to as FRICTION. Friction is an inherent nature of the Physical Plane and dichotomy that invites inner and outer conflict regarding choice. In other words, your Astral Body begins to form with your process of that first choice. Depending upon the results of this, a crystallization begins in the Astral Body. That crystallization of the Astral Body forms in polarities in the same way that overleaves have polarities. That polarity of crystallization carries over into every lifetime. This helps explain further how your Essence is not all-knowing across your lifetimes, but is in a process of learning along with you. Your Essence has a higher perspective, but it is learning. It is has access to resources more readily than you may find yourself, but in the same way you are learning the where and how of your resources, so does Essence. Though optional themes are carried in your Instinctive Center that are triggered by choices of the current Personality, the crystalline parts of the Astral Body are your link to a more persistent layer of consciousness that has been growing across all of your lifetimes. It is not dependent upon the choices of the current Personality. And this is how you "wake up" faster and faster in your lifetimes. It is also how you find yourself having "issues" all the way up to your final lifetime. Crystallization of the Astral Body happens in ways that are Negative and in ways that are Positive. Negative Crystallizations are areas where one remains conflicted regarding certain Friction, and Positive Crystallizations are areas where one has resolved the conflicts regarding certain Friction. On a microcosmic scale, or within the parameters of a single lifetime, this is called Self-Karma. Self-Karma is always limited to a single lifetime. However, it is often generated from one's growing embrace of Essence and the Crystalline elements of the Astral Body. Self-Karma can be in place with or without consciousness in a lifetime, but consciousness is required for the Crystalline elements to activate. This is why when someone works very hard to reach a state of seeming enlightenment, or when one works hard with our teaching and puts into application all that is learned, evolving their consciousness in leaps and bounds, Manifesting Essence, suddenly and only then do you realize and face your ancient bullshit. Or realize and face your ancient immortality and bliss. Over many lifetimes the Positive Crystallization spreads to create a very literal form that becomes your Astral Body that is your vehicle to Cycling Off. The Negative Crystallization cannot carry beyond the cycle of incarnations and the cycle of conflicts and friction will continue until one truly resolves that conflict and lets the Friction serve ones evolution. Before we continue, we will check in with quick question: Is this making sense to you and does this expand upon your understanding of your evolutionary process? Uma:definitely! ClaireC: Yes DianeHB: Yes Bobby: You've got me really thinking now because you've shared that we also have a Causal Body so without going into detail about that, would something similar work this way "there" as well? Yes. All of your Bodies evolve out of the work of other Bodies. By the time you are an Old Soul all of your Bodies are active and evolving, creating your path of return Home. The higher bodies evolve just like "you" do. They have 7 stages of evolution relative to the Plane. The difference between the lower and higher planes in terms of evolution of the bodies is that the lower plane bodies evolve the higher plane bodies and as the higher plane bodies evolve from the work of the lower plane bodies, these higher bodies contribute more and more to the evolution of the lower bodies. It is a beautiful and wondrous circuit that evolves. Your higher plane bodies are not locked into "waiting" for you to "get to" the Mental, Messianic, and Buddhic Planes before the start of their 7 stages. All of this is in a beautiful fractal pattern. Janet: The term ‘crystallization’ may be creating a roadblock for me because it makes me think of physical crystallization, and so it makes it hard to see how Negative Crystallization is something that can be changed without shattering. If Positive Crystallization spreads to create the astral body, then is negative crystallization not really ‘crystallized’ but more like areas of the astral body that are still incomplete until the ‘ancient bullshit’ is worked out? In response to Janet: First we will define Crystallization as being a homogenous geometry of facets. When these are Positive, these are clear. When they are Negative, they are not. The Negative must shatter. And they will. Eventually, the Friction will come that shatters these to allow for clarity. The Positive crystallization that is carried into cycling off adds to the structure that is your Entity and further into what is your Cadre, Energy Ring, etc. This Positive Crystallization is vital because it is how you reunite in an Entity. It is a return to form that pieces together in ways that reveal the greater truths of existence. This Crystallization is not solid, but is a form, an infrastructure. You do not reunite just because your numbers match. You reunite because you return to a wholeness. When one carries Negative Crystallization into a lifetime and then activates it, the Friction begins that challenges that Crystallization. It is relentless. When we speak to you about your Negative Crystallization, the examples will help. Janet: Aha. Thank you. Uma: So, can you say that every choice contributes to either resolving friction or perpetuating friction, and as those frictions are resolved we move more and more into the Positive Crystallization and this feeds back into those choices? In response to Uma: Friction will exist with or without Crystallization. It is the nature of the Physical Plane and dichotomy. What happens over lifetimes is that as you resolve the conflicts related to various Friction, you generate these Positive Crystallizations that nullify the Friction as an issue. Think of it this way: Weather will always be a part of the Physical Plane. Imagine that it sometimes rains, sometimes even thunderstorms. A person is caught in the rain and "freaks out." The rain is merely a part of the dance of being Physical, but this person takes it personally and now when it rains he has decided that God, the gods, the universe, bad luck, etc. are just out to make his life miserable. Now, when it rains, he responds as if he has been assaulted. He leaves himself there. That is his resolution. It is a Negative Crystallization. Now, imagine he carries this into the next lifetime. He is awake enough to connect to this Crystallization and it rains again. He is inexplicably convinced of his bad luck and suffering at the hands of the universe or gods. He plants his crops and then there is a drought. Suddenly he is faced with further Friction that now questions whether Rain is a personal insult or is just something that is necessary for life. It rains and his crops are saved. His Crystallization that had concluded that rain was a personal insult is now shattered. He must address this. Eventually, he learns to work with rain and how to walk in it with an umbrella if he chooses not to be wet, and to be more playful if he ever gets caught in the rain, and so on. The rain will continue to come, but his Crystallization is now Positive and nullifies the Friction. This is a highly simplistic example, but will do. In more direct response to your question: yes. Uma: lol Are there further questions? Maureen: Michael, so, Positive Crystallization is the resolution of paradoxes, or seeming paradoxes, until we reach a perspective that can include the whole picture or the wholeness of (our) experience? Maureen: or experience(s)*. Uma: are you kidding? I have enough questions for Eternity! In response to Maureen: They are often paradoxes, but not always. Rain is not a paradox, there is nothing confusing about it or complex, but our example is pulled from "real life" because early lifetimes start with Friction relative to the new world of the Physical Plane and its wonders and horrors. It took you 3 lifetimes to work through your issues with the Wind. Maureen: LOL! I'm not surprised and now it's a True Rest. ClaireC: Everything is crystal clear to me. ? Maureen: ? Johanne: I think I get the idea although not all that crystal clear ? Uma: I was having 'flashes' of the fractals and 'the beautiful circuits that evolve'. And all from FRICTION, that annoying sensation! **** WORKSHOP/FEEDBACK **** Though you will have many layers of Friction in your life and have your Self-Karma and your Karma and simple preferences and dislikes, we ask you now if you can name a Negative Crystallization that you see as an obvious pattern of challenge that relentlessly asks of you to shatter it. We will help to clarify these, but your words are important as a launching point. Uma: Entitlement springs to mind Johanne: no, I cannot name a negative crystallization or see an obvious pattern of challenge Uma: not getting what I was promised Bobby: Justification for being is coming to mind first... subject to change though Uma: and feeling cheated Janet: We were speaking in the chat room about a dream you interpreted for me in a private session, and looking at that session now, I wonder if I have crystallization around the subject of freedom. ClaireC: I was just thinking last night about how "high-strung" I am, and whether that is physical or emotional and how to change it. Would this be a Negative Crystallization? Maureen: I think one of my last pieces, that I can see, is the conflict with rest or true rest for me and how to rest “properly”. It’s interesting (to me) that you said:” It took you 3 lifetimes to work through your issues with the Wind.” Does Diane have a response? DianeHB: I don't have anything obvious come to mind. Tex says his is hoarding. DianeHB: Actually I can think of something now - my preoccupation with where I'm going/the future might be a negative crystalization. We will comment/respond now to each of you. UMA: your assessment is valid, but we will describe it as FAIRNESS. It has Crystallized into issues that show in terms of entitlement, earning, deserving, etc, but it is all about Fairness. Unfairness is a part of life, like rain. It is not out to get you or harm you, but it does happen and it does hurt. Just like rain can wash away a town. Unfairness happens. It is the underpinning of Karma and Justice. Uma: I had that thought also, that FAIRNESS is a big one for me. It always has been, since earliest childhood memories. I can see it. Uma: And one of my pet sayings is: Life may be unfair, but people don't have to be. To shatter this Negative Crystallization you will have to embrace UNFAIRNESS as something that is not directed at you, but is a natural invitation to creativity, to strength, to truth, to networking and nurturing, and using your known resources rather than ignoring them and waiting for better ones. Uma: Thank you! JOHANNE: you described your Negative Crystallization in your own words. We will describe yours as related to THE UNKNOWN. You are sponge for knowledge and you transform your knowledge into wisdom, but part of that motivation for knowing comes from the sense that knowing somehow protects you from the Unknown, and when you find you are in an acceptable place of knowing, you no longer look. To shatter this Negative Crystallization you must keep looking. You must embrace the Unknown as not something to conquer or protect oneself against, but as an invitation for curiosity and playful discovery. NOTE: it should be presumed that if we are describing your Negative Crystallization it is one that you are well into working on and shattering. If you do not relate to or recognize what we see, then you have either shattered it, or we are wrong. BOBBY: your assessment is valid. We will describe it as a Negative Crystallization around PROOF OF LIFE. It is not just about justifying your existence, but proving that you exist. A Negative Crystallization formed that concludes one makes a difference that forgives the mistakes of one's existence. To shatter this Negative Crystallization, you would have to destroy the notion that you must be forgiven. You will not and never will be forgiven. And by "forgiven" we do not mean that someone eventually tells you this, but that your joy, your peace, your evolution is fueled by choice and creativity and curiosity rather than "making up" for something. When we say you will never be forgiven, we mean that nothing will ever be enough to address any Friction around "mistakes." Mistakes happen. They must be dealt with and you must learn from them, but they cannot remain an anchor to define the life. You do not prove anything. To anyone. Ever. JANET: your Negative Crystallization is directly related to your assessment. We will describe it as RESPONSIBILITY. Freedom is one of the most terrifying territories for one who navigates life by comforts and standards of Responsibility. Your Crystallization has deemed Responsibility as a priority factor for defining the self and for judging others. Irresponsibility is nearly evil. You will have to shatter your notions and standards of Responsibility as you move further into Freedom because Responsibilities are not only about obligations and skills, but about the capacity to respond. The safety and familiarity of standards, obligations, and skillsets will remain, but to go into the territories you seek to explore as a soul, you are expanding your understanding and compassion for what it means to be Responsible. CLAIRE: you are onto something with your assessment. We will describe your Negative Crystallization as being related to RIGIDITY. You have crystalized this notion that existence is acceptable and even safer if you simply stay within familiar parameters and people. This lifetime has shattered this. You have actively embraced that Rigidity cannot serve you any longer and you have seen the devastating effects of it and you have seen the subtle effects of it in your mental and emotional walls that have been being dismantled over the past year. The "high strung" element comes from your dance with issues of Control, either being in control or having someone be in control. And now you are not. Nothing is in control. You have surrendered. You are learning what it means to lose rigidity as a form of stability. And now you build a new world of truth and honesty and love that is the start of a new Positive Crystallization. It may not always feel like it, or look like it, but it is happening. DIANE: your assessment is valid, as well. Somewhere along the way of your incarnations it was Crystallized that safety only exists in the future and that the present is something to endure. This comes from a series of lives where imprisonment was explored. The only hope was "in the future." We will describe your Negative Crystallization as being related to THE FUTURE. DianeHB: That makes me cry This is your first lifetime looking at this so closely and you have shattered it. You have found, created, and nurtured your Present in such a way that you have never known Love so intimately and honestly. The Future a ribbon on the gift of the Present. DianeHB: I still feel like I tend to focus on the future, but not at the expense of the present. Maybe it's just a habit now. MAUREEN: your assessment is directly related to your Negative Crystallization, which we will describe as VIGILANCE. This is a Crystallization that demands and expects that you are the only one in the room with the wisdom and perspective to help save the day, because at one time, and many times, that was true. To shatter this Crystallization you are learning to trust the growing pains of evolution. You are able to hold the horrors and suffering of existence in the same hand as the beauty and innocence. Maureen: This is making me cry. You are learning to allow your fiery inspiration without it burning you out. You are learning that innocence and beauty are not mutually-exclusive from stupidity and idiots. Maureen: LOL Bobby: lol DianeHB: lol You are allowing yourself to stay on watch, but learning to know when, how, and why to make your moves. Not just learning to choose your battles, but choosing your battlecries. ************** All of the above are OUR assessment of a Negative Crystallization that has been with you for some time across lives and that you are addressing in the current life, most likely already having shattered it, and working to Crystallize in the Positive. You may not agree and you may find your priorities focused in ways we did not describe, and we are always willing to be wrong. This is a starting point for considering this new realm of understanding of your lives, your soul, your bodies, and the meaningful work you do on your evolution even when you do not realize it. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
September 21, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We understand you will be in “open floor” format again tonight. We will move immediately into Questions then. [Clavis] Could Michael recommend any power or energy spot in Germany to visit during my trip there? It could include Austria, too. [Michael_Entity] We have no basis with which to “recommend,” as far as “energy spots” or “power spots” in what is known as Germany. We can either highlight a few of the areas, or comment on areas where you may already be planning to visit. Most will find their “spots” quite easily on their own. [Clavis] Michael mentioned “pressure points” of Earth before, using Egypt as one example. Is there any such spots in Germany or Austria? [Michael_Entity] Each of our channels resonate with and define parameters differently for what they call “points” or “spots.” The variations are not contradictions, but rather, “layers.” Each Layer is based on a layer of Truth. Most “power spots” are based on Personal Truths. The system as a whole for defining the “maps” of energy that comprise the Earth's energies requires collaboration, but it is a definite system. If you'd like to have an example of what might be a “personal power spot,” something that might resonate with you and trigger personal transformation, then on that basis we suggest the Harz Mountains. [Dewliet] Lately, certain music has made me ache with inexplicable longing. I get the feeling music might be a “language” for a fragment's communication with Essence. Could Michael comment on what draws individuals to certain types of music? [Michael_Entity] This particular Universe is built from and based on Music and Math. Everything can be reduced to either. Geometrically, the Universe can be reduced to Circles and Triangles. The resolution or common denominator for each set is the Spiral. Music then is multidimensional in its effect. All nonphysical matter, from the Astral and beyond, is translated into shapes and tones. When these multidimensional means of translation and communication are used while Physical, there is a “transcendence” in many cases to a level of “pure” nonphysical, paranormal connection. Music is in particular the language of the Astral Plane and the Messianic Planes. While extant on the Physical Plane, while Essence resides Astrally, Music then is a direct path to your Source. It is also a means to link directly to other Essences. What draws a fragment to a certain type of music is usually linked to their Centering and Role. Listening to it is the only means for its impact. Creating it is a different context altogether. We will also add that two other factors in determining the draw to certain types of music is the predominance of your Overleaves as they are arranged on the Axis (more Action, or more Expression, etc.). And we add that “timing” and events in a life will create a draw for what is most “needed” appropriately. [Dewliet] So, are you implying then, that the music most deeply touching me is that which brings me closest to Essence? [Michael_Entity] Yes. But note that it may also be a path for direct contact with other Essences. This is a large topic and we may continue with the delineation of each Axis, or move to the next question. [Dewliet] Thank you, Michael! Please take the next question. [Anne49] I would like to know why during the live channeling session in NYC some of us blanked out. I have very little recollection of what took place, and do not remember being anywhere else. [Michael_Entity] Many of you are inconvenienced by the body as a sensory unit as a whole. Those of you we sense “blanked out” were in a moment wherein you felt “permission” to do so. There was a common element of great amounts of input for each of those who did “blank out.” While in our “presence” and while in the moment of your Cadre/Entity unions, having to have full-body attention was simply pointless and moot to you. After a great deal of input over the week previously, combined with the sense of permission and safety, combined with the hypnotic elements of the room, voices, and energy, it is not surprising. “Where” you were was literally “nowhere.” At least as we see it. This was the “point.” This allowed assimilation, but with that amount of assimilation in a condensed amount of space/time, the “pressure” most likely had an impact physically. We believe you mentioned to Troy the pressure of your “headache.” This happens to many who attend a channeling in person, or even online “live.” A great deal of exchange is occurring not only “horizontally,” but “vertically.” [MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people's auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy's aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally? [Michael_Entity] The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person's Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen. A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here. In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy's Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed was the release of minor beliefs from Troy's Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these were released. As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side. [Leela] I've been wondering recently if there is particular karma that Jews as a group have carried over the millennia. Is there any truth to this perception? [Michael_Entity] Races/religious groups can have Karma that is dealt with collectively over millennia, yes. We see those who choose the context of lifetimes as a Jew as participating more in terms of religious imprinting as a means to explore common themes. There is no particular Karma for Jews that we can see being valid as a whole, but the draw to be born as part of this group in any form is highly appealing to Mature Souls seeking intense lessons around family and imprinting. Races and religions create CONTEXTS more than they do Karma. For instance, the race known as Black or African/American is now a powerful draw for newly Young Souls. [Momhawk] Hello Michael: What's up with this ‘peeper’ guy? Are my ‘impressions’ so far, accurate? Does it look like he will ‘return’ again HERE, or not at this time? Any further recommendations as to how to best handle this situation? Is it safe to remain here in my home, or would it just be better to leave for a while over the upcoming weekend. I'm REALLY tired from dealing with all of this at this point. [Michael_Entity] This is your Karma. You will be compelled to complete it. Whether you leave or not, there is a momentum that will allow a balance. Your “impressions” are accurate enough to console you, but they are of little use. We do not speak ominously, simply as we see the situation. Your “best” method of handling this situation is to trust your impulses. They are cues to your Karmic path. [KellyGirl] I would like to know about my next Mate agreement that will happen, particularly when, where, who, and the agreement itself. [Michael_Entity] You have two Mate Agreements: A Sage and a Server, both male. We cannot guarantee that these “will happen” as they are Agreements, and are not bound by anything. We do see they are still intact. The Server's agreement was for August. The delay is not an impact. The Sage is in Agreement to meet you in November. The Server is a Healer in your Support Circle and will most likely, if brought in, be a pivotal but temporary contact. His impact will inspire you, but attachment is more than likely not the intent. The Sage is more “serious” and probable as a long-term exploration. You enjoy Sages. This fragment is involved with children and Law. The ‘where’ of the agreement with the Sage is not determined, though we do see an inclination toward meeting in a holiday gathering. [echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I'm thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.) [Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use means that have become identified as a means to grab the attention of the caretaker. We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication. [Clavis] Could Michael tell me if I have chosen different careers in any parallel selves, and if I can tap into my talents in my other selves? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course you have chosen various careers in parallel universes. That is why they are not “this” parallel. It is possible to “tap” the talents of other Parallel personalities. This can be done through simple visualization and imagination. Using your imagination, “peek” in on what you could imagine as having been alternative routes “you” followed. These are almost always accurate and real. If you can imagine it, it has most likely found a place in some parallel. Once you have “locked on” to a parallel, “observe” yourself there. Look at what “you” are doing in your general, everyday life. If that is a parallel with talents you'd like to implement “here,” or if it has a prosperity level that you'd like to impress “here,” then simply notice what you are wearing, what you do as you come home, notice how you are wearing your hair, how you eat, anything that is a common, obvious behaviour that is “different” from “you here.” For example, if in that parallel you always come home and place your keys in a specific place, note that. Note anything that can be easily duplicated “here,” but is different enough to symbolically link you to that parallel. Then simply begin implementing that small change. The impact can become quite phenomenal and transformative. A bleedthrough will begin, impulses and behavior may begin to change, etc. It can be quite disconcerting, but if you are consciously choosing this experiment, it can be maneuvered through with little stress. [Clavis] Would Michael care to name a few of the different careers? [Michael_Entity] We are not in a forum that supports an assessment of your parallels tonight, JJ, but your own imagination can be used as effectively. [ksh] When is my next mate agreement? [Michael_Entity] You have Agreements with a Scholar in April of 2001. This is a long-term Mate Agreement with a movement in process in 5 year cycles. This fragment is male, travels to the US frequently and intends to live there eventually. It appears the agreement is to be fulfilled through meeting in a work environment or job-related pursuit. The meeting will most likely occur previous to the month of the Agreement's implementation. You can validate when you meet this Scholar when you are informed that his brother lives in the US and the fragment's mother is deceased. These are two, more obvious validating factors. Good Night.
