November 21, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand that you are interested in the “energy report,” so we will begin there. As we have covered the next several weeks in our previous reports, we do not have much more to add. We can more appropriately give you any specifics that have come up as a result of the passage of time. The next two weeks appear to be a week of contrasts. This is more elaboration on what we had originally termed “surprising” manifestations. In the next weeks ahead, there appears to be a continued energy focusing on high contrasts between what is assumed or expected versus the manifestations opposed to this. This is merely the manifestations of Martyrdom and Impatience, as we have elaborated on in your past. Anyone who has Impatience and/or Martyrdom can attest to the seemingly consistent stream of experiences that push the Personality in directions unexpected. This will be played out in its highest density of manifestation over the next two weeks, possibly three weeks, as the opportunity to indulge in these Fears is presented/created. As these weeks pass, it will be meaningful to most of you to reread the previous two transcripts with the Energy Reports for more details in how to handle these energy fluctuations. It can be said at this time that each of you will most likely NOT “escape” the energy moving through your plane, as easily as is usually the case. It seems most fragments are resonating with the exponential “agitation” that has begun to unfold. The Energy we speak of would be that of the “collective” energy generated among most human sentience at any given time. In many cases, many of you can evade or avoid these energy shifts and fluctuations as easily as you would rain, but in the weeks ahead, this appears to be more “stormy” than usual and it will at least touch your attention. We simply mean that each of you will most likely find some kind of contrast against your expectations to deal with that are fairly striking compared to your usual surprises, as well as more community and global levels of surprise. For instance, a well-known figure in the acting field has recently come to terms with going “public” about her belief and experiences of “reincarnation” and this will most likely be a focus of media for a while. This may seem to be a plain example, lacking fanfare, but this is what we are trying to convey through the example. The experiences appear to range from high surprise to sheer shock, depending on your personal resonance with the energy at the time. It could then be said that the next 3 weeks or so will have a Key Theme of High Contrast (Surprise), and a Key Resolution through Surrender. By Surrender, we mean to find ways to “enjoy the ride,” to observe with a bit of detachment as a means to find the humor and adventure in your life. Many of the “surprises” will just be humorous, as that is the nature of Humor, to contradict, surprise, and present paradox. A recent example would be in the spectacle made of the fragment known as Michael Jackson. We will now open the floor to questions. [sam_nemo] My reading of the Tao Te Ching and Bhagavad Gita indicates that results are more important than means, but Michael said another time the journey was more important. [M_Entity] And what is your question? [sam_nemo] Which is more important, the ends or means? Am I misreading the texts? [M_Entity] Both are “important,” but each takes on its own importance depending on the context. In most religious texts, the emphasis is on the END RESULT because most religions spring from a need to understand tragedy and pain. In that need to understand, it is easier to satisfy the more passive states of being human, by stating that rewards are at the end, and that as long as you get there, the path did not matter. This is helpful when one is concerned with whether he or she is on the “right path or not.” In our perception, there is only the path of Choice, so there is no “right or wrong,” only Choice. Our emphasis is a bit more on the means to create a path to your liking, because you will get to the “end” no matter what... you may as well enjoy the journey. The “end” never truly comes, anyway. Therefore, in the end, it is the Journey that becomes your “heaven.” If you choose to be an active participant in your life, learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn, then it is the Journey that will be of importance to you. [clairen] At what point in Gandhiji's life did the Transcendental Soul manifest? [M_Entity] A Transcendental Soul is born. It does not manifest in the same way that the Infinite Soul does. This is because the fragment that is “in” the body is already a fragment from the Entity being represented. There will, of course, be a regaining of consciousness, but it will not be as lengthy and troubled as a single fragment's. This is why a Transcendental Soul tends to be so effective and magnetic quite early in the life. While the individual is technically a Transcendental Soul, he still exists with a Personality that will have its challenges based on imprinting or ideals. In his case, he had an emphasis on alleviating the effects of Greed, which would mean he had his own personal fears related to this Chief Feature. His Idealism, at times, would lead him into naivety as he would assume that Sexual exchanges somehow “stole” from the energy of another, or himself. We remind you that while Transcendental Souls have a “higher” perspective of everything, they are immediately as susceptible to the confusions of being human as they are of the wisdom from the Entity. [clairen] Why did he feel so guilty about sex with his wife? [M_Entity] It will help to understand that Sex was the most immediate indulgence available for the Transcendental Soul to use as a tool and example of restraint against Greed. Since this is a common indulgence, it was more symbolic than literal in his experiences. [Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death? [M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike? [Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate. [M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment's death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.” Time becomes much more malleable and while some fragments will “immediately” seek the comfort and consolation of family and friends, others will “go back” to those hours immediately following death to offer comfort, but only after the fragment itself has reached some understanding of what has occurred. There is no standard. We can say, however, that the GENERAL way of experiencing post-body is through a process very similar to what you experience in terms of waking up physically. Most of you will have your experiences following death to be very similar to your experiences of waking up each day. If you wake up grouchy, you will most likely die “grouchily.” If you wake up “bubbly,” you will most likely die “bubbly.” If you recall your dreams more readily, you will most likely recall your lifetime as readily. If you never remember your dreams, you may find that a series of “dips” back into the lifetime timeline will be a form of review. Regardless of how all of this is experienced, most fragments are immediately interested in emotional rest, healing, and comfort during what you would call the first 72 hours. [essenses] Regarding the prophesies of the indigenous peoples that say as we come to the year 2012, time as we know it will shift. Are you aware of a shift that will occur that will be very different from life as we know it now, and if so what would the change look and feel like? [M_Entity] There will always be shifts and that which is indicated by Mayans, or any other ancient or modern group, are no more or less as meaningful or meaningless as any other shift. Some groups have a calendar to point out the date, and still others are as vague as simply stating that “He will return.” We remind you that your most recent shift in consciousness globally came on September 11, 2001. Previous to this, it was in August of 1987. These shifts in perception of Time or Space or spirit or matter are not rare, though they can be more or less subtle. [essenses] Are we entering a “golden age,” 4th dimension less density? [M_Entity] Probabilities do indicate a strong inclination for world peace and continuing explorations of compassion, if this is what you mean by “less density” and a “golden age.” [essenses] Yes, I guess so as that is what the predictions say. [M_Entity] It is a Mature Soul world, which could be interpreted as “4th dimensional,” if that is your terminology, as it is the 4th soul age. [Leela] Can you please comment on the origins of what is now known as “belly dance”? By origins, I mean both geographically/culturally, and spiritual; I feel that this dance is very powerful and meaningful. What were its original purposes? Is it true that it was partially used for childbirth rituals? [M_Entity] This dance has its origins from more than is considered now, though its more traceable roots can be seen to reach into the history of what is called the Middle East or Orient. We have seen this dance as being prehistory, being a form of varying forms of power during a period on Earth when women ruled. [Leela] Is this dance a form of energy work? [M_Entity] It was used as torture as well as mating, sexual stimulation between same sexes, and birthing. The more mystical meanings began to become associated with this dance many years past its true origins. [Leela] Torture?! [M_Entity] Yes, sexual forms of taunting were used to punish males. The dancing you recognize today could be said to be a refined version of its origins, with a focus on the more spiritual aspects as it relates to images ranging from Skakti to servants of pleasure. It has always been a Moving Centered/Intellectual Part form of dancing, as it is focused entirely on control, balance, isolation, and anticipation. Or an Intellectually Centered/Moving Part form of dancing. Those who of either centering are usually drawn strongly to it. It is less about the history that draws the fragments who practice it, as it is about the resonance within the body and the ensuing resonance with the Energy of the physical plane. For most fragments who begin practice this form of meditation, blockages within the lower chakras and the Higher Moving Center can tend to be “cleared” up, releasing a storehouse of erratic energy at first, then slowly settling into the balance it naturally would have. [oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps? [M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth. [oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent? [M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.” Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized. [Mike_Val] An Oxford DNA Scientist has stated that we have originated from seven women in a book called The Seven Daughters of Eve. Can we as a race, be traced to these seven women scientifically through our DNA? [M_Entity] No. We do not see validity to this. Though this could be a distorted interpretation of the fact of your Species being based on a hybrid of 7 different species. [chrisx1] referring to the comment on the last shift in consciousness on Sept. 11, 2001, when is the next shift of significance? [M_Entity] These shifts are never predictable, but they are able to be seen in terms of probabilities. The most significant shift pending in your timeline now appears to be in or near the year 2020. A great deal of meaning is placed in this configuration of numbers, and while there will be shifts before that time, that year appears to be a pivotal year. It appears to be the first year that two major countries will share a leader, or stand as joint leaders. If this does not occur literally, it will be a strong focus in the world as to how this will be implemented when it does become feasible. It is also the first year that the country known as Iraq may first become territory controlled by another country's leader. This is already an agenda of the United States, even if not intentionally. We will conclude now. Good night.
