    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. SKEPTICISM- Philosophy of DISPROVING Skepticism is chosen to narrow perspective so as to focus and hone in on the abundance of misinformation, false claims and lies. They are necessary to clarify and expand upon information and research, because they, themselves are searchers. The Skeptic sees life is to be thoroughly Investigated, questioned and wrong claims DISPROVEN. For this reason, they are always cautious to accept something without personally checking it out and validating it themselves. In -Suspicion, she's over-fixated on monitoring something/someone for proof, assuming inherent/intentional deceit or hidden truths are always involved, and seeking to expose or tear down any deception or misinformation. She's already decided you're wrong/uninformed or a threat to her being right, probing you just to mock/discredit or avoiding interaction entirely, quietly or overtly. This Skeptic may even just keep these questions/doubts to herself. Her DISSATISFACTION then becomes her BLIND SPOT; being the sense that nothing can ever truly satisfy her questions/doubt/investigation, especially because she has a hard time being wrong or seeing that lack of solid validation and empirical evidence doesn't imply deceit. To move from Suspicion to Investigation, the Skeptic realizes her efforts to disprove are actually also to Improve. From this mindset, she must Bring Together more parts of the puzzle/picture than what she sees, such as by asking for information that can help, or avidly searching in new directions, rather than waiting on or enforcing fixed suspicions. In +Investigation, she asks+searches for more+new info. Her effort to disprove is a means to learn+build insights- to ensure strength in the proof and flesh out meaning and depth; she’s curious, comfortable questioning assumptions, and patient in her search for answers. (Regardless of any discrepant/challenging/surprising information or behaviors.) -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blindspots of the Skeptic Skeptics in Social Situations July/August 2011 Energy Report September 2011 Energy Report
  2. [Extracted from Michael Speaks: June 2005] [Annsge] I would like to know about the secondary chief feature. I’ve heard that it affects the mode and/or it affects relationships. Is there anything in particular that is helpful in working with the 2nd CF? How does it affect relationships–and/or does it affect relationships more than the Primary CF? MEntity: We have spoken of the Secondary Chief Feature as affecting the Attitude and the Mode, depending on the context of the questioning. When we spoke of the Attitude being affected, there was less understanding as to how the Mode worked. The Mode is not one of the more understood Overleaves. We would, then, say that there are three tiers to the effects of a Chief Feature, making a Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Chief Feature system. Primary Chief Feature affects the GOAL; the Secondary affects the MODE; the Tertiary affects the Attitude. It is NOT that there are three distinctly different Chief Features in your Overleaves, but that there are three AREAS in which a Chief Feature will be distinctly visible. Although these areas may very well have three distinctly different Chief Features, it is also quite common to have one Chief Feature rule all three areas. These areas, then, would be the areas of Self-Fulfillment, Relationship-Fulfillment, and Philosophical Fulfillment, or the Goal, Mode, and Attitude, respectively. The Chief Feature that affects the Mode is the Chief Feature that affects your experience of EXPRESSION. In addition, then, the Chief Feature that affects your GOAL affects your experience of ACTION, while the Chief Feature that affects your Attitude affects your experience of INSPIRATION. The Chief Feature that affects your Mode/Expression/Relationships is the Chief Feature that is used to protect you from INTIMACY. Your Mode describes not only how you express yourself internally and externally, but it also describes how you approach or repel Intimacy. When we speak of Intimacy, we are speaking of the spectrum of experience that could be described as SAFETY. In other words, the Chief Feature that is enlisted as your protector against Intimacy is doing so because you have learned that you are UNSAFE in your Expression and in your Relationships. We remind you that a “relationship” and “intimacy” is not exclusive to human interaction, but can include your sense of relationship to and intimacy within yourself, your aspirations, goals, etc. This subject can be explored much more deeply in a more appropriately provided format. We believe what we have shared is a good start. We, of course, have much to say on this subject. In terms of alleviating the effects of the Secondary Chief Feature, one would always find the quickest and “easiest” route to be through that of the Attitude. In ALL cases of Chief Features, the Attitude is the one overleaf that can dismantle them all. If one can find a conscious means to implement a behavior to bring the Attitude into the Positive Pole, one can dismantle the effects of the Chief Features in a powerful “domino or cascade effect.” Using the Positive Pole of the partner Attitude on the shared Axis, one can then move directly into the Positive Pole of the original Attitude. For example: If one is an Idealist, one can move from Naiveté (negative pole) to Coalescence (positive pole) by using INVESTIGATION, which is the Positive Pole of the Skeptic. To explain this more personally: The Idealist sees life in terms of how it SHOULD BE. This often leads to Naiveté because he tends to believe he can or should do far more than he is capable of doing. The Idealist then piles his life full of obligations and improvements to the point of disappointment and sometimes to the extent of harming himself or others. He has not accepted that to get from point A to point Z requires the steps in between. This is a form of Naiveté. This “negative” Attitude then cascades throughout the Overleaves, weighing them down into the Philosophy of CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT (or that everything should be “better”) without the means or method to do so. The Philosophy is not the problem; it is simply the lack of Coalescence that blocks this fragment. Coalescence could be defined as the culmination of several factors that can eventually manifest the Ideal. One can now see how INVESTIGATION might help an Idealist to dismantle his fears. If he would simply seek to understand (investigate) the steps required that would create his Ideal, he would not remain under the weight of Naiveté. Once he grasps and implements the process of realizing the Ideal, he is immediately back in Coalescence and free from Chief Feature. This same method can be applied to ANY Overleaf, but starting with the Attitude is the most empowering and immediately revitalizing because Attitudes are linked to the energy of Inspiration. Once the feed of Inspiration is returned to the Personality, most often “anything” can then be done.

    [Extracted from Michael Speaks: Modes] [MEntity] ... First, we will share that each of the Overleaves tend to be showcased, presented, emphasized, brought to the forefront of a Personality in different contexts. Depending on the context, a specific Overleaf is leading the Personality for that context. For instance, in SOCIAL situations, the Attitude is the most prominent Overleaf that is used for leading the Personality. In RELATIONSHIPS, it is the Mode. We realize that Social interaction may be consider variations on “relationships,” but we differentiate these by the level of intimacy that is intended or sought for exchange. In “Social” situations, we speak of the level of interaction that emphasizes “getting along” over “getting intimate.” Social situations seek commonalities in viewpoints, or challenges to viewpoints. In Social situations the commonality or challenge is primarily in the realm of philosophies, expression, and information exchange. In “relationships” the commonality or challenge is primarily in the realm of intimacy, resonance, meaning, emotions. The Attitude has a voice. The Mode is mute. The Mode can only “feel,” intuit, “know,” perceive, etc. The Mode bypasses logic in its support or challenge to intimacy. When in groups beyond 2, it is likely that the Attitude is at the forefront for interaction. But even within a group, if conversation or exchange moves to a more ordinal exchange, a more intimate exchange, then the Mode kicks in, so to speak. It is not necessarily the number within the group that is the determining factor, but how one is focusing upon those within the group. If there is a sense of each individual, then the Mode is probably emphasized, but if the group acts as its own entity, and recognition of individuals is rather fleeting, it is most likely the Attitude interacting. The Mode requires a Connection at the very least, and full-blown Resonance at its best. In fact, it could be said that those terms may be used as Negative and Positive poles for the Term “Mode.” Connection would be an anticipated, speculated commonality, while Resonance would be valid, mutual recognition of commonalities. For the most part, the difference between Connection and Resonance is the difference in the degree of space and time involved. “We have a Connection” is often the anticipated, speculated (and hopeful) initiation of a relationship, whereas Resonance is validated from experience and exploration, which requires space (as in, physical interaction) and time (as in, digestion of experiences). Keeping in mind that one can RELATE to anything from an object to an intention to an animal to a person to a soul and all the way to Tao, it will be helpful to understand the spectrum between Connection and Resonance. We spoke of the comparison of the Attitude and Mode only as a means to exemplify the differences, but for no other reason. In our system, the Mode not only describes how one relates to others, but within the Personality it describes how one relates to the motivation for the lifetime as described by the Goal. Understanding your Mode can help you grasp the challenges or the commonalities that you may feel about your Goal for the lifetime.
  4. [Excerpt from Energy Report: July 2012] As a cycle of pre-measured time unfolds, such as a year, it can be anticipated in understanding similar to describing and anticipating any Personality. Any system, such as another Personality system, Astrology, and even frequencies and meanings of color, could be used to describe these cycles of time, as they could also be used to describe geographical locations, communities, etc. because if there is a basic understanding of any system, it can be superimposed in a way that is quite useful and empowering. The greater the understanding of the system, the greater the understanding of that which is being superimposed upon. However, a vital, key awareness in any process of interpretation or superimposition is that “the map is never the terrain.” In other words, we can describe the year in Overleaves, Astrological terms, Color, etc, but that year will never exist through only those words; you still must live through the year as a way to know that year. This is true of any map. The ATTITUDE in our system of Personality is the individual's “map” of the terrain through which they will journey. It is your system of superimposition and interpretation. The Attitude is the lens through which one perceives, interprets, and archives his or her life, but IT IS NOT THE LIFE. When one looks at a map of New York City, it is not the same thing as walking its streets. When one looks at the stories of history books, it is not the same thing as having been there. When one looks through the eyes of his or her Attitude, it is not the same thing as what is being seen. We point this out because the shift in July moves in emphasis from the MODE to the ATTITUDE. Your Attitude is your collection of maps. One's Attitude is never just one map, but many, and always a collection that supports the same basic system of interpretation and superimposition that you are working to explore. This system is described by the name of the Attitude. One begins to collect maps of the terrain of their life soon after the 2nd Internal Monad, or when one actually begins to develop his or her own stable mobility. The maps used at 10 years old are very different from the maps used at 21 or 45 or 75, but they can be strikingly similar, with the maps building in extensiveness rather than in replacement, though a complete replacement of one’s maps can and does change, depending upon imprinting. As with our own Overleaf System, or any mapping system, the system of interpretation and superimposition is fairly neutral, and cannot determine the experiences that one will have when actually exploring the “terrain.” For example, the Idealist or a Spiritualist Attitude do not have an easier time, or a better perspective, than a Cynic or a Skeptic, but these different Attitudes do have very different systems of interpretation and superimposition; very different maps. One of the reasons we find that the cycles of a year move through an emphasis on the Attitude is so that all Attitudes may have a period of time each year to “see” the maps that may not be their own. We might compare this to one person becoming rather dependent upon a Subway Map of New York City, but then finding themselves looking at a map of walking tours through the Parks of New York City. It is not that one is better than the other, but having exposure to both (and more) can greatly enhance one's understanding of the city, and this can be said about your own exposure to the different Attitudes and maps that are used around you. You will always return to your own map, but there would come to be a sense of these other maps that can be carried with you and understood, even if not your default map. This allows you to understand the greater collective experience. To deny this expansion would be similar to someone describing New York City only terms of its Subway routes, denying all maps of waterways, Restaurants or Parks or Museums, etc. There is a necessity for multiple maps for a single terrain, because a single terrain offers up multiple layers of experiences. Your Attitude is not the truth, it is merely your means of exploring the truth. Soul Age often corresponds to the number of maps one can carry, if you will. The younger the soul, the fewer the maps, and the more invested and engrossed one is with the maps that are one's own. However, as the soul grows, the Personalities begin to carry around more maps, or put in terms relative to our Teaching, the Attitude expands. As the soul ages, its corresponding Personalities seek to understand more and more maps that are not one's own, and this is why we share the Energy Report. Understanding the collective world as it is being explored through a dominant, collective Attitude, helps one to expand upon one's place within the largest map of all, that eventually includes all of you.

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. STOICISM- Philosophy of NATURE Stoicism is chosen for its built-in capacity to slow down its processes of time, such as that reactions can be either evaded or diminished without betraying those processes felt underneath. The Stoic sees life in terms of its nature, and they understand that one’s nature, environment and upbringing are naturally limiting and have their effects. That all of these contribute to the character+behavior of any person/situation, in somewhat deterministic ways. Stoics see the world as if it’s all been seen before- fairly unflinching, unsurprised and perhaps uninterested, they manage life and view ethics in terms of one’s self-management, self-control and self-awareness. In -Resignation, she goes too long seeing the same old without any surprises- and it is all grey, diminished, and less than it is-, or she is overwhelmed by too many new, or exciting surprises that throw her off. She just stops trying, giving up to a false, imposed form of calm- “It’s all going to be the same, so there’s no use in seeing it any differently.” In this state she comes across as tedious, draining, difficult to communicate with and lacking passion, interest and attention. There is a sense of defeated distraction. And this prompts her BLIND SPOT, in that she DISCONNECTS, tunes out and turns off because too much of the same thing is being presented as if new/exciting when she presumes she already knows all there is to know from that, or too much of a new thing is being thrown in. It's too much for her to process, and it just needs to stop being the focus. To move from Resignation to Tranquility, Stoicism must Verify if what she's resigned to is actually an imposition to her or her life anymore- if there is something new+valuable the experience can bring that can be meaningful to her that she resonates with. Once this meaning comes- a sense of focus, change, beauty in chaos and serenity can return. In +Tranquility, she is attentive, cool-headed and informed: embracing both life’s mundanities and surprises as meaningful experiences. Nothing to her, is required to be more than it already is, as this Stoic knows the ups+downs of life, and behaviors of others are simply part of their natures. The Tranquil Stoic is calmly present- adapting+adjusting her perceptions as a means to see clearly: to remain, and be truly calm. ----------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blind Spots of the Stoic Stoics in Social Situations Member: Janet- Stoicism July 2015 Energy Report September 2015 Energy Report

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. SPIRITUALISM- Philosophy of POSSIBILITIES Spiritualism is chosen for its capacity to always see and be open to the possibilities- or at least a knowing that there IS possibility, even amongst all the fear, anxiety, stress etc. The Spiritualist sees life in terms of its possibilities+potential, or long-term consequences- and embraces more intuitive/perceptive forms of navigating life. They consider how thought+feeling can influence the self, others and the world- and they may believe that the non-physical is interconnected with the physical. Spiritualists see the world as if never seen before, always looking for signs, interconnectedness, meaning, resonance etc. in everything. In -Belief, the Spiritualist, overwhelmed by the messages+meanings of life, will simply decide what is true, what happened/will happen, what others mean by their words/behaviors etc. If they believe it, it’s undeniably true, and they’ll drown out, challenge or proselytize anyone who they feel doesn’t believe them. Belief concludes potential based upon determined symbology, rather than feedback, facts, validation, discernment etc., and so they may see failure, rejection, loss, fear... as defining them and limiting their own, others’ and the world’s potential- because symbology dictates so. They can sometimes even become dependent upon a sense of potential that has no form, exhausting them from optimism. His BLIND SPOT then, is that he will make EXCUSES for his disappointments and failing of potential, by justifying his behaviors+choices as being caused by anything other than him(The Universe, Fate, Chance, Obligations, Others’ Behaviors, Circumstances etc.) So if upset, there will be a reason- if unable to succeed it is *this* that had it be so. This helps him to avoid responsibility and avoid changing beliefs. To move from Belief to Verification, the Spiritualist must Calm Down and Recenter himself through Tranquility when he decides what's true without any support/evidence it is. Doing this allows him to feel at peace- within the "eye of the storm" where he can validate his beliefs with a clearer conscience. In +Verification, he validates his beliefs against his experience, thus bringing through and embracing the more loving+legitimate(rather than fearful+hopeful) of possibilities, without feeling compelled to believe or challenge anything/anyone, only to open mindedly listen and help. Nothing is just decided as true or not true- he asks questions and questions himself to discover the truth. He will create what he sees as potential by making choices, taking action and taking risks. ---------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blind Spots of the Spiritualist Spiritualists in Social Situations Member: PPLD- Spiritualist, Flow, Scholar July 2010 Energy Report July 2012 Energy Report Member: NickG- CF Report Member: Ingun- CF Report Member: Ingun- Pragmatist Imprinting + Spiritualism is Flexible Spiritualist Anxiety/Stress Quick Tidbit on Spiritualist Grief (Last Paragraph)

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. CYNICISM- Philosophy of OPPOSITION Cynicism is chosen to see the layers of reality we often choose not to see, or overlook; healthy Cynics then help everyone maintain a broader perspective of reality- one that doesn’t disclude anything. It is the development+implementation of active intelligence and discernment. The Cynic seeks to directly oppose the obvious, appearance or common assumptions of life, themselves or others. There is always more than meets the eye; what is forgotten, missed or taken for granted is what they will uncover. The Cynic can get under your skin, throwing a wrench into the smooth socializing in place because they look beyond for the contents underneath the packaging. In -Denigration, she emphasizes the unapparent to hurt+undermine, actively countering+cutting down to remove+destroy her opposition through opposition, and if there's nothing to oppose, she can even make up contradictions just to be contrary. She can't accept that the simple truth or lack of complexity is all there is, often trying to break something/someone down far more than it can be. This can often be seen as belittling, devaluing, back-handed compliments or smugly loaded statements that evade notice for what they actually mean. As her BLIND SPOT then, this becomes an OBSESSION wherein she not only perpetuates the most outlandish conspiracies, but sees denigration as a necessary evil that is noble or important to oppose, even if it means making up+stretching facts beyond recognition. To move from Denigration to Contradiction, the Cynic must be aware of the effects of her actions, thoughts and words. Rather than use blunt truths to justify her behaviors, she benefits from being Objective about her Oppositions. When she feels defeated, defensive, frustrated, angry, exhausted etc., she must surprise herself by questioning her intent, her perspective, thinking differently, trying a different angle, and expanding her focus to find solutions+alternatives to what is affecting her. In +Contradiction then, she brings light to the flipside/underside, contradicting only if she deems it beneficial to help you or herself see what is missed or unapparent, and to look beyond the surface, beyond the obvious/status quo- and especially, in the pursuit of integrity and truth. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blind Spots of the Cynic Cynics in Social Situations Young, Old and General Cynicism in Relationships Cynic Community July/August 2011 Energy Report September 2011 Energy Report June 2016 Energy Report July 2016 Energy Report August 2016 Energy Report

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. PRAGMATISM- Philosophy of EFFICIENCY. Pragmatism is chosen as a means to use whatever Attitude is deemed appropriate, sensible and practical in a given situation. It is all about doing, thinking, feeling WHAT WORKS best, in your mind. Pragmatists can be very Observant in their Social Life, as an example, as it’s a practical use of energy. In -Dogmatism, she is immovable & unwavering in her stance/perceptions, and this can show as obvious, or passive-aggressive nitpicky/badgering micromanagement, in “My way or the Highway” standpoints, or in her continuing to impose+repeat methods that only work for herself, or that she deems is the ONLY way that works/will work; simply because if it worked then it must now, or if it works for her it must for you. Dogma ignores any input from others, or even herself that offers more efficient ways- and insists that things be seen, done or understood by her, or you- in ways that are counterproductive. Her INSENSITIVITY towards the messy/inefficient struggles of her own+others is her BLIND SPOT. The Pragmatist is so used to and would rather dismiss+denigrate those struggles by oversimplifying solutions- "stop struggling", "let it go", "don't respond", "it's not worth it", "suck it up", "walk away"- than listen+help others/herself through the experience. It's tiresome extra effort to inefficiently empathize. If it's not an issue for her, it's stupid and silly to struggle with. If it's an issue for her, it's stupid and silly to struggle with. Pragmatism can use any other Attitude to Enforce Dogma or Bring Practical Efficiency- Stoicism would help to remain centered+calm, ranging from passive resignation/giving up- just stopping, to peaceful embrace and navigation. // Spiritualism would mean to use intuition+feeling, ranging from blindly believing it works, to verifying those beliefs via experience. Skepticism would help to investigate and disprove claims, ranging from being fixed+suspicious, to asking herself+others questions to gather information that can bring insight+solutions. // Idealism would focus on the improvement, ranging from naive expectation that others+herself do what should work, to bringing together what's needed for the ideal to work. Cynicism would actively oppose, ranging from adjusting her perceptions to undermine+directly cut you/her down, to contradicting to show there's more beyond the surface, more that's unseen. // Realism would see it for what it is, not as expected, ranging from feeling unnerved+disoriented and declaring what's fact, to clarity+objectivity about what's true and what's supposed. In +Efficiency, she is helpful, productive, and adapts her perspective when her methods don’t work out. The Efficient Pragmatist experiments with her options both offered from within and without, to discover what works best in a given situation; while only acting, or offering direction/feedback to herself, or others- when it is necessary or beneficial. Ultimately, what helps the Pragmatist to be efficient, is that she realizes- There’s MORE THAN ONE WAY. ----------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blind Spots of the Pragmatist Pragmatists in Social Situations Member: Bobby- Essence Report(Slide to Idealism) Member: DianeHB- Essence Report(Slide to Spiritualism/Realism) Member: Tex- Essence Report(Slide to Spiritualism) Member: BrianW- Pragmatists & Intimacy July/August 2011 Energy Report September 2011 Energy Report Using vs Expecting Tools+Resources Observation is Pragmatic Member: DianeHB- Pragmatic Template

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. REALISM- Philosophy of PERCEPTION Realism is chosen to balance perspective and view life from the middle ground; their mind naturally sorts experiences so everything that can be seen/experienced is stored in “plain sight”. The Realist sees life, people and things FOR WHAT IT IS; sometimes it sucks, sometimes it doesn’t- but they naturally default to perceiving and living reality as something independent of any personal P.o.V. In -Subjectivity, he feels sucked into the middle/focus of an experience, personally affected by the actions+words of others, or the frustrations+disappointments in himself and life; unnerved+disoriented, or even paralyzed from losing his sense of clarity, distance, and confidence. He no longer feels a part of the picture, and he tries to shrug off/distance from reaction- even if through first lashing out- AS a defensive reaction to keep things from getting too real. The Subjective Realist sees ONLY what is true for him, to the detriment of the actual truth/reality or the truth others feel. OR The Subjective sees ONLY what is the independent existence of something, to the detriment of his own feelings/interpretations of it. He declares fact and finds proof for his conclusions. His BLIND SPOT then, is in feeling imposed upon by, and not knowing how to objectively deal with INCONVENIENCES to the convenient paths, patterns and ways he's secured in life to help stay objective, especially in those times hardship and struggle will arise. To move from Subjectivity to Objectivity, the Realist must be open to Contradict+Oppose himself, expose himself to the opposite of what he thinks is true. By doing so, he can clear his mind from the clutter of subjective interpretations, bringing new perspectives. In +Objectivity, he knows life isn’t personal, it happens; choices have consequences and feelings are important but not the truth. He listens to himself+you with this in mind, offering level-headed insight to help return a sense of balance+clarity. The Objective can observe the truth without being affected by it in ways that demean, control or complicate him. He is open to exploring life and experience, so be if he trusts it or not because he knows his perceptions are NOT THE WHOLE TRUTH. ----------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blind Spots of the Realist Realists in Social Situations Realist Elaboration Member: DianeHB- E&P Session Member: Maureen- CF Report July 2007 Energy Report June 2014 Energy Report July 2014 Energy Report September 2014 Energy Report July 2017 Energy Report

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. IDEALISM- Philosophy of IMPROVING Idealism is chosen to see a broader perspective that helps fuel an unending sense of forward movement, and forges creativity. It is an Optimistic Stance. The Idealist sees as though everything can be improved upon and should be better. This means they’re constantly comparing, measuring, assessing, and sizing up to an ideal, and look where things are not of better quality. Idealists will always challenge where you stop expecting more of you, them, or others. On a day-to-day basis, they’re adepts at reading body language to see beyond facades and measured responses; and they’re the first to look at what isn’t said/done to see where patterns can be shifted. In -Naivety, he sets high expectations+ideals for himself+others but doesn't know how to fulfill those, or how/if they can be fulfilled- forgetting or ignoring the time, patience, steps and energy needed to get there, and ending up falling short, feeling it'll never come to be- disappointed+frustrated by how things are when they should be *this* way. Naivety can be fueled by expectation and demand that the pieces come together. He constantly pits you/him against what SHOULD be, or he continues to see the best in you/him even through any pain/neglect/abuse. Which prompts his BLIND SPOT of COMPARTMENTALIZING- ignoring, avoiding, or distancing from the REPERCUSSIONS of his failed expectations- so that the whole picture(of his failure to meet his ideals) can't be seen/felt/experienced any longer. To move from Naivety to Coalescence, the Idealist must Investigate what's missing as part of fulfilling his ideal. What information, communication, skills, steps, efforts, emotions, behaviors, improvements etc. are needed? This Idealist uses his critical faculties well. In +Coalescence then, he discerns what’s required for improvement, and brings together the steps, efforts and parts needed to fulfill his ideal or assessment, while allowing for setbacks in that process as information for redirection, rather than as burdens to his ideal's fulfillment. This Idealist may be very accurate in his assessment of someone/thing, but he always makes room for variables- he isn't conclusive. He sees patterns leading to the evolution of a person/event/thing, and moves toward supporting, creating or altering parts to fulfill that pattern. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: You and your Attitude Blind Spots of the Idealist Idealists in Social Situations Coalescence through Skepticism Member: Diane- Essence Report Member: Diane- CF Report Idealism, Martyrdom, Greed Tidbit on Coalescence September 2009 Energy Report July 2013 Energy Report August 2013 Energy Report September 2013 Energy Report Member: Nadine- Comparisons for Navigation vs Negation Idealist Community
  11. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 011308 [Michael Entity] : Hello to everyone. We are here. We've been asked to expand on the Overleaves in a way that might add more "dimension" and context for the practical use of the Overleaves, and we can do so. What we have shared about the Overleaves, in general, is "just the beginning." What we will share with you today is how these Overleaves "show up" in the basic contexts of your daily existence. What we will share is a way to be more aware of the Overleaves in a way that can be observed and then that overleaf can be more consciously utilized in other contexts where it might not be so obvious. We will start with the Goal. If you have ever wanted to observe your Goal in effect most clearly, this Overleaf is most obvious in the context of your EXTERNAL LIFE. By this we mean that this overleaf is what you use as your motivation behind all of your choices that are in relation to the external world, to life, in general. Within that context, it could be said that the Goal is the Overleaf that describes what you reach out for in the world in terms of experience, or more precisely, the Goal describes what you wish to bring back with you from your experiences. It does not ultimately describe HOW, or IF, but it does describe WHAT. For instance, if your Goal is Acceptance, this means any experience that is taken from your day can be traced back to that particular Goal and you would do well to see how this describes WHAT you sought in your choices throughout the day from the general contexts of your external life. It could be said, then, that the Goal resonates to the Moving Center and the Action Axis. We share this axis resonance with you as a foundation for future information we have to share, as well, because we will eventually go through each Goal (and mode, attitude, etc.) and what each overleaf means in light of this information. We also share these resonances, not only for future reference, but for your further exploration on your own as you draw connections and cross-references throughout these resonances. We will also include here that the Goal could be said to be your method of entrance into the world in terms of PROJECTS. In this case, we mean "projects" as a key term to help simplify the general point of your motivation for reaching out into the world of experience in the first place. Next, we will share about the Mode. In terms of the Mode, then, it could be said that the Mode is your entrance into your world of RELATIONSHIPS. If you want to fully understand how your Mode manifests, it can most easily be seen in the context of Relationships, or more specifically, in the world of INTIMACY. In this case, we would define "intimacy" as being your method of resonance to something beyond you. This is why the Mode is often described as "how you go about reaching the goal," because your relationship to experience (your Goal) is still a relationship, which is then described by your Mode. The Modes resonate to the Emotional Center and the Inspiration Axis. The Mode resonating to the Emotional Center implies accurately that Modes are about PERCEPTIONS, which greatly affect your interpretation of OTHER in relationships; Perceptions being the Positive Pole of the Emotional Center. Furthermore, the Modes' resonance to the Inspiration Axis will help shed light on the dynamic required for INSPIRATION and how that works for each of you, which we will discuss in future sessions about the Overleaves. It should be noted, as well, that we do not limit these Overleaves' resonance to the Lower Centers, but include the Higher Centers, as well, though we wish to focus on the Lower only for the sake of tangibility and practicality, not because the Higher Centers are excluded. In other words, it could be said that the MODES are how one might eventually manifest LOVE in the life, or the Higher Emotional Center. In addition, the GOAL might be how one could be said to manifest BEAUTY, or Energy, in the life, as it resonates to the Higher Moving Center. By "beauty" and "energy," in this case, we mean that one brings about a sense of pattern to experiences and begins to see this pattern as perfect and beautiful, not as random and chaotic, or imposed. Next we will speak of the Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be your entrance into the world of COMMUNICATION. If one were to see how this most displays itself, it is usually most prominent in the realm of SOCIALIZING, or any realm of exchanging information. The Overleaf describes how one communicates to others through the primary personal philosophy one has chosen for the life. It also describes how one LISTENS, or hears, in terms of Communication, as it is quite difficult to communicate outside of your personal philosophical stance. In other words, if one is an Idealist, it could be said that Communication is primarly going to lean toward the philosophy of IMPROVEMENT. It does not mean that one cannot exchange outside of that philosophy, but that when an Idealist is fully present, then communication is bent toward that philosophy, steering all expression and reception through the Ideal. The Attitudes, then, resonate to the Intellectual Center, and the Expression Axis. By association, this also means that the Attitudes describe how one communicates his or her TRUTH, as the Attitudes resonate to the Higher Intellectual Center, as well. It could be said then that all communication passes through this overleaf as a means to help evolve, question, develop, transform, update, etc. the concepts of Truth for the life. In that respect, one can see how this Overleaf can tend to be the most obvious in social situations, as that context can quite often bring to light how one expresses his truth, hides it, or protects it. Next, we will speak of the Role. The Role could be said to resonate to your INTERNAL LIFE. This is who you are "at the end of the day," when alone, and "catching up with yourself." This is the part of you used to make sense of "it all." This is the part of you that digests and stores the experiences, the communications, the intimacies of the day, year, and life. Remember that ESSENCE and ROLE are two very distinct terms, though they are used interchangeably, easily. This is why we speak in terms of "Role in Essence," as the Role is an overleaf that the Essence chose for the cycle of lifetimes. The Role resonates to the Instinctive Center and the Assimillative Axis as this is the part that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It could be said to be the Overleaf that asks at the end of the day, "what does all of this mean to me? how does all of this contribute to my evolution? why did I make the choices I made?" This is also the very primary level from which ALL of your choices are made, whether in Projects, Intimacy, or Communication. The Role is from where you draw your consciousness as it grows from Experience, Relationships, and Socializing. And so it could be said that this is also the part of you that you bring TO your day; the constantly-refreshed version of you for the new set of experiences explored within the next day, month, year, and even life. Differentiating these contexts and how each Overleaf is showcased in these contexts can help bring about an awareness that one might not have had, before, in terms of grasping how his overleaves work in the day-to-day. Upon exploring these contexts, you can also look at where one might have "issues" or how one might resolve "issues" related to that particular context of life. For instance, if one is missing Intimacy within the life, one would look to the Mode for insights into how one might find resolution to the issues connected to intimacy and relationships. If one is feeling a lack of participation in the world-at-large, so to speak, and feels a lack of energy, an increase of frustration in the life, looking to the Goal can help in bringing insights into how to bring one back into a conscious participation again. If one finds oneself rejecting or uncomfortable in social situations, it could be of help to explore the primary truths, the Attitude, as a starting point for what motivates this division. We could go on with many different paths of examples, but we believe this will be a good starting point to offer within the time frame available today through this channel. We will include here that we have more to say in terms of how the Body Type, Centering, and Soul Age play into this, but these will be discussed in future sessions. [AnnH] : I am having trouble understanding how the assimilation axis overleaves operate in this context. Ex. my mode is observation: How does clarity vs. surveillance work in terms of relationships? [Michael Entity] : It could be said that, in terms of relationships, you are divided from the other, observing from a distance, removed, never truly intimate, but "surveilling" when functioning from the negative pole. In the positive pole, it could be said that you are able to drop the division between you and other and truly grasp his, her, or it's presence in relation to you. In other words, you allow OTHER to be seen and included in your vision, your clarity, rather than through a metaphoric plate glass window. When in Surveillance, yes, you can smile and nod and even make "googly eyes" through that window, but Other is never truly able to be seen clearly, to be present for you, to be within reach of true intimacy, because you are "keeping your eye on him, her, it," which, ironically, does not allow for as much clarity as one might think, because without allowing the Other to be fully present, you do not have all of the information available. For simplistic purposes, it could be said that Observation Mode is either at-a-distance, or up close (negative, and positive poles, respectively). We remind you that the entire spectrum described by an Overleaf is available to you and while the positive poles "feel" better most of the time, and allow for manifestation of Essence, it is also valid to utilize the negative poles as part of your experiences of a life as Personality. [Kathryn41] : How is casting incorporated into this scenario? Is it more reflective of 'essence's nature apart from the role and other overleaves? Does it even count as an overleaf, or is it more of the innate nature of essence? [Michael Entity] : We would not consider "casting" to be an Overleaf, but you are correct in seeing this as more reflective of an innate nature of Essence. Casting describes a mathematical relationship of your Essence relative to other Essences, and this does affect the Essence (and by extension, the Role) greatly, but not within the contexts we have shared today. However, we will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored within your days, and we will get to that in future discussions, if it chosen for pursuit. As a quick response, we will say here that the Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. We already know this is a topic of interest and intend to delve into this with those of you who are interested. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
