Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN *** VIP: hi Michael VIP: Does diet have any effect on the ability to access the higher centers, or the ease with which, access to the higher centers can occur? (I understand that the higher moving center is designed to be easy to access as-is, so if it makes no difference with regard to that one, I would like to know about the other two higher centers.) Accessing the Higher Centers is accessible to all under any and all circumstances. They are designed as accessible and functioning regardless of condition of the body or state of consciousness. They must function or the body dies. However, there is a difference between these Centers functioning in default, and when one consciously begins to access these for use as tools beyond their default. For most, and for many lifetimes, these Centers are only accessed consciously during extreme conditions, duress, and intense situations. Profound pain in the body, "heart," or "mind" can open one to these Centers in conscious ways. Profound pleasure in the body, "heart," and "mind" can open one to these Centers in conscious ways. Access through extremes of pain or pleasure are forms of intervention in the life, and are not only misunderstood and misinterpreted, but this kind of access can lead to addictions, escapism, fetishes, etc. Other ways that these Centers are accessed are through Laughter, Tears, and Happiness. When there is access through these, they can range in degrees of awareness and consciousness, from subconscious to full consciousness. The reason these Centers are so accessible in so many ways is because there is no interest in a design that withholds higher functioning from any individual based on their choices, behaviors, conditions, health, etc. With all of this being said, when one begins to seek understanding and use of these Centers in conscious ways, then the degree of conscious use and value can be dependent on several factors that hook into many elements of the life. In such cases, then diet becomes vital. We can speak of "diet" in broad terms here to include various ways in which one consumes as a means of "feeding" oneself. This can be food, relationships, entertainment, exercise, etc. For example, if one has compartmentalized one's food diet to the point of ignoring the impact it may have on health, other creatures, other people, and the planet, then that compartmentalizing affects how well one can access a Higher Center. If one is abusive in relationships, or abused, where one's confidence is fed, then one has limitations on his or her conscious use of a Higher Center. The equation is rather simple: The more conscious one is in various areas of the life where one seeks to feed oneself, the greater degree of conscious access one has to the Higher Centers. VIP: thank you Michael! NEXT, Claire ClaireC: Hello, Michael. Can the recently deceased see/observe/follow us in our daily lives here on earth from the Astral Plane? I am curious if they can reassure themselves that we are doing "alright", or whether they cease to care about life on earth after death, or if their only means of doing so is through Essence contact while we dream? Claire, those who die have varying degrees of access to the Physical Plane in much the same way that those who are incarnated have access. Most who die have access only through mediators. In the same way that you have channels and mediums, so does the Astral Plane have those suited for helping open and connect to the Physical Plane for others in the Astral. The younger the soul, the more dependent on these portals. The blur between the Astral and the Physical is not the limitation, but the consciousness and maturity of the Personality/Essence. In the earliest lifetimes, the panic of being out of a body is so strong that rebirth is nearly immediate. If birthing is not available, the Infant Souls can "crowd" around those who are more naturally tuned to the Astral, and this can become problematic. We can speak to that another time, but we say this because in the same way that there are those who act as mediating portals in the Astral, there are those who are channels, psychics, mediums in the Physical. In both Planes these fragments act as beacons. For simplistic purposes we will refer to Physical Plane fragments as Beacons and Astral Plane fragments as Portals. ClaireC: So, some mediums who speak to the departed are legitimate. Yes, there are legitimate mediums, but far fewer than claimed to be. Most Astral fragments get much of their information about their loved ones and after-death impact through reports from those who act as Portals. There are entire networks set up for this. But as the soul ages and consciousness allows for the blur between the Astral and Physical to be straddled, then the individual is far more capable of continuing presence among those who continue to live. This begins to be more steadily possible around the 7th Level of the Young Soul Age. If you know a Mature or Old Soul who has died, then his or her sensed presence is probably legitimate. Otherwise, it may be felt through a proxy. Neither is better or worse. But what happens even for the older souls is that it is found to be surprisingly difficult to communicate with or interact with the living. This is primarily because the living are quite limited to the processing capacity of the brain, and this machine is more often than not focused on a very finite sliver of reality. Those who are dead are no longer confined to the processing capacity of a brain and are using what you might understand as similar to "cloud technology," where fragments pool processing capacity So they can "see" and feel you more easily than you can see them, and while this may not lend comfort to the living, any direct communication you offer to any deceased individual will be heard or relayed to that individual. So while the deceased can "hang around," most do not because they have their own processes to tend to, and even when they can hang around, it can get quite lonely quickly, so it rarely makes sense to continue. It helps all involved when all parties grieve and grow and continue forward. That is more comforting in the long run than remaining in invisible efforts to comfort. These are "big" questions this evening. We do not know if we can address all of them, but we will try. ClaireC: Thank you, Michael. This validates my own experience. NEXT, Kurtis Kurtis: Hey Ms, I'd like an elaboration on the Jovial Health today. There's absolutely no info on it. The Jovial Body Type manages the homeostasis of the body, the dynamic equilibrium of functions. This is related to the posterior pituitary. When the Jovial Body Type is healthy, it is like a vast city of moving parts that work together and function in terms of balances and imbalances so that the the whole is benefited by any changes. When the Jovial Body Type is unhealthy, it is like this vast city breaks down in communication and the needs of one area begin to overshadow the needs of another, the equilibrium is lost, and various parts of the system are not willing or capable of contributing to other parts. In many instances where there are imbalances, there is bloating, blood pressure issues, water retention, and in extreme cases there can be tumors. Because the Jovial Body Type manages the release of Oxytocin and Vasopressin hormones, it is one of the reasons the Jovial Body Type can come across as so approachable, cuddly, lovable, and can be a very real factor in how that body ends up in positions of rulership/leadership. Kurtis: aighty thanks M :) NEXT, Peter PeterK: Do large prime numbers play a role in the design or structure of the Universe? There are Prime Factors involved throughout the mathematics of the universe, and some of these result in versions of Prime Numbers, but they are not particularly adhered to or referenced as a guide for the structure of the universe. It is fair to say they do "play a role," but Composite Numbers and other vastly creative mathematical dynamics are at play. NEXT, Brian. BrianW: Hi Michael. Could you please discuss how to learn and practice healthy self-love and how to overcome rejection of aspects of the self? To practice healthy self-love AND to overcome the rejection of aspects of the self is most directly and immediately remedied by CHOICE. By this we mean that you are not being forced to hate yourself. You are not required to hate yourself. You are not required to dislike yourself or reject parts of yourself. The act of avoiding self-love and the act of rejecting the self is a choice. And one can always make a different choice. So the first and most effective strategy will always be found in those moments when one realizes he is being mean to the self, is being critical and hurtful or scared and then CHOOSING not to do that. Because this is so simple, it is often not that simple. In other words, it is often too simple a solution for many to accept. So it is made complicated and messy and drawn out because one is often taught that love must be earned, it must come as a reward, it must come through permission, and it cannot possibly be "right there," ready to embrace. BrianW: If I may follow-up, could you provide some information on recognizing when one is being critical or hurtful towards themselves in the first place? CHOICE must be followed by ACTION, though, and this is where many get "lost." For a moment one can choose to love the self and to stop the rejection, but this is fleeting because the choice must be made again. And again. And again. Until it is as natural as the hate or apathy had come to be. Each of you here can stop right now, simply stop, and feel the difference between the moment before, and the one RIGHT NOW where you choose love. Just love you. Just accept you. You are fat, you are poor, you are confused, you are alone, you are struggling, you are searching, you are overwhelmed, you are uncertain, you are so many things, but none these exclude you from the choice to love. Your fat, confusion, losses, overwhelm, frustrations, etc, can all be helped by that love. We are not calling you these things above, but we know that many of you use these terms for yourselves, and you can continue to use them if you wish, but they will never be enough of a reason not to love. Never. Brian, one of the easiest ways to know if one is making a choice for love versus a choice for fear is if one is FEELING. It does not matter what you feel, it is THAT you feel. You will feel a spectrum of feelings across a lifetime, and none of these determine how accessible one's access to love may be. Your sadness, excitement, grief, joy, pleasure and pain are your efforts to Love while bumping into things. Eventually you find ways to maneuver so that you no longer bump into things, but embrace them, and that is what most think of as "love," but all of it is love. It can change everything in an instant to know that however bruised you are, broken your heart is, and exhausted you might be, that this is because you are practicing Love. True Love is an Art. Agape is an Art. You will know if you are being hurtful when you are not benefited by your criticisms. Criticism is important. Judgement is natural. Neither of these keep one from loving. Neither of these keep one from being loved. To avoid criticism and judgment is to avoid Loving and Being Loved. This may seem counterintuitive, but one grows and evolves into confidence and wholeness by questioning, criticizing, judging, discerning, assessing, and while these can be used in hurtful ways, they are not inherently hurtful. Consciousness cannot evolve without using those tools. The key is both in how constructive the criticism is in its being given and in how constructive the receipt of that criticism is. You can be critical of your status, your body, your state of relationships, and this is just information about how you feel. It is an opportunity to assess whether these are things you seek or wish to improve, to change, or to evolve. And none of this has anything to do with how much or how fully you can love. So ask yourself if your criticisms are only said to hurt you, or are they said to inform you. This is the same question that can be asked when criticism comes from others. If it is only to hurt you, then that is that. It is useless. It is not yours. If is hurtful because you resist it, then you can choose to receive it differently. The hurt is not the indicator so much as the intent and receipt. Even when someone says something only to hurt you, your receipt of it can transform it toward benefit. Kurtis: that's true So feel it all. Keep feeling. Allow it all. And let criticism inform you, not hurt you. This is Love. Loving is messy, and you will bump into many things along the way toward better embrace, but we know of no soul who regrets even the worst of pain on that path toward love. NEXT, Bobby. Bobby: The Chief Feature emphasized for next year was Self-Destruction. I was curious how this plays into the Presidential Election cycle for the US that will be underway around that time of year? Break out the probability computer if you wish :) We can only say that we think there is high probability that both ends of the spectrum will be played out in Sacrifice and Suicide. There is an implosive pattern in place here that looks to sustain its momentum through 2016 toward Self-Destruction. This will likely be a pivotal year in whether the younger souls rise in great rebellion against the shifting paradigm, or there is a shift toward embracing it. October through December will be "interesting times," indeed. We will conclude here for this evening. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
Ask Michael Live Chat December 7, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley ViP2: How do neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, etc (and drugs which influence neurotransmitter production and handling in the brain, such as Prozac) fit into the spectrum of choice that is available to an individual? For example, if an individual is depressed and feels like there is only a small range of choices available to improve that situation, is taking such a drug a "useful" way to increase the available spectrum of choices? I suppose taking the drug is a choice in itself but I'm curious as to how one's mental condition, which appears to depend partially on neurotransmitter activity, influences or establishes the range of choices available in a given situation. MEntity: In response to the first part of the question: Though this topic is far more complex than the mere minutes we have here to respond, we will say that the primary effects that these neurotransmitters have is not so much on the range of choice, but on the AGREEABLE vs. DISAGREEABLE range of choice. When these neurotransmitters are in a healthy state, there is a tendency to be in a more agreeable state, which makes the range of choice accessible, but not necessarily indicative of a "good or bad" choice, as much as an agreeable choice. When these neurotransmitters are in an unhealthy state, there is a tendency to be in a more disagreeable state, which makes the range of choice seem more inaccessible, even if they are not, because any choice will tend to be opposed. Unhealthy states of neurotransmitters tend to incline one to reject, deny, or battle against options, even if the range is vast, while healthy states of these neurotransmitters tend to incline one to experiment, allow, and accept options of choice, even if the range is quite limited. In terms of influence, choice is still there, of course, even if it may not seem to be so. There is a difference between neurological processes that affect one's mood around the options of choice, and neurological processes that actually reduce the capacity to choose. When there are neurological influences that reduce the capacity to choose, then there is either self-karma taken on, or choices made for this individual become consequences for those who make the choices, not the one who is compromised. The latter would be similar to, say, how a baby or infant might require care, and how its capacity to choose is truly limited. Any choice on that baby's behalf is of consequence to only the one making the choice. We can alway speak more on this subject, but this is our response for now. ClaireC: Hello, Michael. In a similar, health-related vein, is there any validity to homeopathic medicine and the claims made by its practitioners? MEntity: Yes. ClaireC: Could you elaborate? MEntity: In most instances where homeopathic remedies have little effect, they are simply administered or taken incorrectly. One of the benefits of homeopathic remedies is that one cannot be made sick from them if there is a misdiagnosis or poor administration. But, as a whole, the claims and treatments of homeopathy are valid. This is a holistic means of treatment, best used for chronic issues and issues that require long-term treatment, while allopathic (or "western") medicine is best for emergencies. ClaireC: How does the mechanism work? MEntity: One of the ways in which one can validate the legitimacy of homeopathic remedies is that they work on non-human, non-sentient creatures. One does not have to "believe" in their effectiveness. They simply work. Veterinarians have turned to this source of treatment for many chronic ailments of animals. ClaireC: Any examples? MEntity: The means by which most homeopathic remedies work is through a kind of intense "stamping" of a molecular structure into the "memory" of water. There will come to be a better word/phrase for describing how this works, but the long and crude description is that the "essence" of molecular structure is stacked in the water in a way that is almost holographic, though not quite. Because it can be "stacked," the remedy may seem to be quite diluted when viewed through current technology, when, in fact, it is actually highly potent and concentrated. Examples for non-human animals can be seen documented for a number of ailments, from skin conditions to ear inflammations to digestive issues to neurological compromises, etc. Because there is no regulation of any significance for homeopathic remedies, and because the intake of dosage is so unfamiliar, many do not receive quality benefits, but if care is given in the selection of a professional, as well as in how one is using the remedies, profound benefit can come. ckaricai: Thanks, My question: The recent events in Ferguson, MO sparked protests all around the country. More people are opening up to the fact that people of color in this country experience a different America and it seems like emotions surrounding this fact are high for everyone...What can we do, rather what can older souls do--other than protest--to help move this country towards more racial harmony? MEntity: One of the first things that can be done by older souls is to stop pretending that one can understand the entirety and complexity of the subject. Not even those who are directly involved and directly affected can do so. It is an ancient wounding, and while current wounding can be addressed, the ancient wounding cannot. At least, not in any superficial satisfactory way. ckaricai: That seems pretty bleak MEntity: Ancient wounding of a people is valid. It is carried forward in the biological constructs of the Instinctive Center of any considered to be of that people. Even as the Essence brings forth its own Instinctive Center data, it is mixed in with the biology of the "race." While "race" is a social construct, and not a valid biological construct, those social constructs still carry an influence in terms of procreation and lineage. In other words, there is validity to "ancestral memory." However, the older the soul, the less dependency upon ancestral memory. The younger the soul, the more defined one is by ancestral memory. ckaricai: ...How then would african americans as a group move past that collective ancestral memory? MEntity: This is also true in terms of species, which is why there is an ancient wounding among all Humans regarding their place in the cosmos, related to the original relocation from Sirius. Our pointing to the fact that no one can truly comprehend the profundity and complexity of the ancient wounding is not meant to imply or sound bleak. It is meant to point to the fact that many speak AS IF they completely comprehend it, and offer opinions, ideas, and facts that speak only to a fraction of the pain. And this can tend to add to the pain. For the older soul, this inclination to presume a full understanding can be much easier to relieve than for the younger souls. As for the whole of the people in question, one of the ways for this to be healed is to allow for diversity within the whole of the people. ckaricai: I understand. Thanks for your answer. MEntity: One of the greatest internal setbacks of any oppressed group is the negative effects of solidarity. Solidarity is important and effective, but not if it is used as a means for not allowing variations in advancement and growth from within the group. Imagine a group of people seeking to escape a fire. In one scenario, everyone is linked, and shoulder-to-shoulder so that no one can get through the door. In another scenario, some will will get through the door before others, and some may have to wait a moment. This is a crude comparison, but it is simple in that it speaks to the necessity for moving beyond solidarity and into the active nurturing of diversity. ckaricai: That makes a lot of sense. MEntity: Again, this is not a full response, as the scenario is far more complex than this, but it is our best response to the questions in this format for now. MikeClev: Is there currently any other Sentience living in or visiting our Solar System (other than Earth's Humans, Cetaceans and a few Gorillas)? And, is there any NON-sentient life in our Solar System other than on Earth, for instance, on Mars MEntity: There is a great deal of non-sentient life in this system, but not sentient. There was Sentient life on Venus that has long-since cycled off, and there have been stations on Mars and Earth's Moon by non-Solar System sentience, but not as native species. Most of the species in this system would be classified along the lines of "extremophiles." MikeClev: If so, have signs of stations on the moon and mars been seen and recognised by scientists? MEntity: Oh, yes. Though they are not fully understood and debate continues, there are those who know without question that intelligent life has created structures beyond the Earth. Maureen: Is there any relationship, at all, between The Nine Needs and the Chakras / Centers? If so, what are they? I do understand that our time is limited today. If there is no relationship, I’ll pass on this question. Note: I know the numbers aren’t complementary (9 Needs vs. 7 Chakra/Centers) but as I have reviewed The Nine Needs I’m often left wondering if there is a connection as they’re both dependent on choices made that effect the fulfilment of the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual Bodies. MEntity: First, think of the Nine Needs as being fulfilled through the use of the Seven Chakras/Centers. Any single Need can be fulfilled through the use of any combination of Centers/Chakras. Think of the Nine Needs as results, where as the Seven Centers/Chakras are functions. Maureen: That helps. MEntity: Results and functions can always find some correlation, even if the systems are different. But to draw strict correlations between the Centers and the Needs would be like drawing some significance from one set of directions to the grocery store over a different set of directions. The path to the grocery store is a matter of function/navigation. The grocery store is the point/result. Maureen: I see. Thanks Michael. MEntity: Correlations can be drawn between the grocery store and a path taken, but also between the grocery store and a different path. This is true of the Nine Needs and Seven "paths," as well. GeraldineB: I'm asking a Q on behalf of Kurtis who couldn't attend: Hey Michael, I'd like to ask for elaboration on the Jovial Body Appearance, and any celebrities that would show it off well, thanks :) MEntity: The Jovial Body Type, in terms of Appearance, is one that embodies density of intellect and expression. This body type is designed to carry and store a wide range of ideas, feelings, stories, anecdotes, memories, wisdom, and so has a great deal of "space" among its cells that show up as either loosely packed or densely packed. Those that are loosely packed, so to speak, are those that are quite fleshy, fat, round, and what many associate with "jovial." So while one version may be like "santa claus," the loosely packed, another may be like the "dumb bodybuilder." This is not to say that Santa is wise or that bodybuilders are dumb, but the stereotypes are there. There are origins of a "Santa" that was valid, but the the modern version is simply a result of clever marketing. In terms of more specific "celebrity" versions, there is John Goodman, and then there is Arnold Schwarzenegger. We must conclude here for today. As usual, there is more to say about each of these questions, but we abbreviate our responses to accommodate this format. These more abbreviated responses can be helpful in that they prompt incremental steps in contemplation and comprehension so that a topic can be fully explored with some base knowledge, if that topic is of interest for further exploration. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
Ask Michael Live Chat September 7, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley GeraldineB: We are going to be rigid on time constraints, trying to keep each person's session to a maximum of 15 min. I will be notifying Mikey at the 10 min mark. I would recommend that EVERYONE add as a caveat to the beginning of their Q -- Keeping this short enough for this format, blah blah blah CocteauBoy: If you guys see a great question that you wouldn't mind taking up more time than usual, please feel free to quickly chime in that you wouldn't mind. I'll ask michael to note for anyone if the question would require a long response. 12:27 DianeHB: Hello Michael. May we have a fuller description of the Venusian Body Type Nature? MEntity: We are not clear as to what to compare for a "fuller description," but we can expand on this subject for you to compare to what you wish. DianeHB: Yes, just expand on the subject. :) MEntity: The Venusian Nature is one that invites and attracts affection. It is of the more sensual of body types, and depends greatly upon physical contact for its sense of presence. The Nature can tend to be quite charming, warm, and even if the person is not consciously comfortable with touch, this Nature will likely invite it. Most fragments tend to feel quite immediately comfortable with MEntity: Venusian Body Types, barring other factors that might override that Nature. MEntity: This Nature struggles between its inclination to be so inviting and accepting, but is one of the harshest in its struggle for accepting itself. MEntity: One of the reasons this Nature is so inviting, warm, and affectionate is because of this. MEntity: In much the same way that the funniest people can also be of the saddest, so can the most attractive and inviting of people be the loneliest. MEntity: Their inclination to allow attraction (which is not exclusive to physical attraction, but all or any level of attraction) is because the Venusian Nature learns to know that beauty is not superficial or temporary, and is often relative. MEntity: Ironically, as their Nature allows them to recognize beauty in many people and things, they can have a very difficult time recognizing this in themselves. DianeHB: (yearns to know?) MEntity: And so this nature is two-fold in that its expression of inclusion and acceptance is a way to show others that they are beautiful, while also generating this experience of inclusion and acceptance from others toward themselves so that it can be a mutual experience. MEntity: Of course, this can be an entire topic in itself. We responded as best we could with no parameter or direction. There is plenty more to say. 12:48:19 PM tkmppi: In Indian astrology a person's "chart" may influence another person: to take a random example, one of the indications of a fallen Moon in the 11th house is that "his eldest sibling leads a tedious life or dies early." On the other hand there are antidotes for planetary afflictions, in this case, chanting the Moon mantra 11 000 times, or wearing a pearl. Would the elder sibling's life become less tedious etc., if his/her younger sibling wears a pearl or chants mantras? MEntity: Tuija, we have never seen that the wearing of a pearl would by proxy alleviate the challenges of another person, unless the other person was somehow challenged by the weight of carrying that pearl in the first place, of course. If it were only that easy to help another. We can say that if the pearl is somehow a reminder to be of help to the other person, then the symbol can be effective. MEntity: Chanting is a powerful means of transformation and effective change for the self, but has little effect on overriding the challenges that another person may have, unless, again, the changes in yourself are actively used to help another. MEntity: There is no validity to removing or adding to another person's life any pain or pleasure using only a symbol or chant. MEntity: Does this answer your question? tkmppi: Yes, that's what I've thought 01:00:48 PM BrianW: Could you please describe the alternate timeline in the 1980s which resulted in nuclear war. Specifically, what was different in those timeline that did not occur in this timeline, what month / year did the war go nuclear, what areas were affected, survived or were unaffected, and what has since recovered, and to what degree? MEntity: The most important difference was that the mistake was not caught in that timeline around November of 1983. The attacks came between Russia and the United States due to confusions regarding poor communication of simulated events. Most of the Eastern United States was decimated, with expansion of attacks ranging between all of the U.S. and Russia, and with fallout affecting all of the planet. MEntity: Australia was one of the few places unaffected, and came to be a refuge for many from Asia, while South America came to be refuge for many from Africa, North America, and Europe. MEntity: Alaska came to be refuge for many from Western United States, as well. MEntity: Migration back to homelands have begun for those who have survived or are of later generations of survivors. MEntity: Because this was eventually recognized as a mistake, great strides have been made in rebuilding relations that would never let this happen again. The population of the planet was reduced by approximately 40% overall, so was reduced to approximately 2.5 billion. MEntity: Most life has returned to farming and village-based culture, with communications returned, anti-radiation treatments available to all, and a world economy that is mostly based in barter. MEntity: We can look at this in more detail in further exchanges. There is much to see, and difficult for us to sort through in a short amount of time. 01:28:00 PM ViP1: If humanity succeeds in developing an artificial host intelligence that can sustain sentience, would a Design incarnating into that structure begin incarnating at Infant soul age? And what are the probabilities that this (development of true artificial sentience) will happen within the next 10 years? MEntity: If a new Design takes up a host, it will always begin as Infant Soul. However, when it comes to Sentient Artificial Intelligence as host, it can often be quite appealing to a displaced Design, assuming the body types are of similarity or interest, which would then take up incarnations from wherever fragments were in progress. MEntity: Artificial Intelligence created by Humans that is capable of hosting Sentience is likely within 50 years, but not likely within 10. Within 10 to 20 years, Artificial Intelligence will mimic Sentience to a high degree, but not host sentience. Over that period of time, hive souls may be of interest, and the depth of relationship with Artificial Intelligence could be on par with that of any child, or domestic animal companion. MEntity: The level of intelligence, or the access to knowledge, is not the same thing as having the capacity for emotional depth, empathy, and self-awareness, but once the programs are in place for self-motivated, self-regulating, experiential, exponential learning and problem solving, then it is a fairly short time before capable of hosting Sentience. 01:42:11 PM juni: While reading, I found this: juni: December 7, 2000 juni: Topic: Reality Shifts juni: [Clavis] Hello Michael. Is it possible to physically enter a parallel universe? To disappear from this parallel and enter another parallel, even meet our parallel selves physically? juni: [Michael_Entity] No..It is possible to do this within the same timeline (Future meets Past and vice versa), but we have not seen this occur inter-dimensionally. Some of your futures contain the ability to physically VIEW Parallels, but beyond that are obvious limitations. juni: Can you please expand on this answer about timelines, regarding meeting a future/past parallel self and how this happens/works? If there is time, can you comment about those futures that are able to view parallels and how this is accomplished? MEntity: Currently, one can view other parallels by using the imagination. In many futures, the capacity to harness the imagination (and dreams and thoughts) as a means of shared viewing is possible. In those futures, this knowledge, along with other breakthroughs in tangible consciousness, has led to breakthroughs in interdimensional resonance. This resonance can then be extrapolated into imagery that can be viewed. MEntity: This is related to what might now be explored as quantum entanglement. MEntity: As for the past and future meeting, this can happen by either "folding space/time" in a way that creates a meeting point which cannot be crossed, but can interact, or through what one might consider the familiar idea of time travel. MEntity: In instances of folding, it seems to be dependent upon access to the same line of familiar consciousness at this point. In other words, a person can only connect with his or her own past. MEntity: It is quite limited in its usefulness and implementation. MEntity: In terms of time travel as is most often understood, it is also of limited usefulness and implementation once it came to be realized that one cannot travel directly into one's own timeline in either direction, but that the act of travel, itself, means either the creation of a new timeline, or (more often) a travel to a different timeline. 02:02:58 PM Marry: Hey Michael, i would like to ask if there is a "smallest thing" in this universe (on the physical plane) or if we are living and perceiving the world in between two infinities, one getting smaller and smaller, the other one bigger and bigger (which is basically one infinity of size in general)? If the time is given, could you elaborate on what is bigger than what is currently seen as the biggest structure in the universe? And on the other hand, what is smaller than the things science currently knows as the smallest particles? MEntity: There is a smallest distance and it is currently known as the Planck, which is at the scale one may "measure" a singularity. In terms of scale and size in the universe, we think the biggest thing would be the universe, itself, which might be described as the Physical Context. It is the space within which "everything" exists that is made of matter. MEntity: In both instances, the biggest and smallest "things" are distances/space. MEntity: This is because that is the nature of the Physical Universe: separation, fragmentation, fragments. MEntity: Anything smaller than what is considered Planck length would be inversion that flips one into the next Universe. MEntity: Universes are "stacked" together in groups of 12, and are connected through these black holes, if you will. This is how they relate to one another and communicate. MEntity: Of course, if one were to flip into the other universe through one of these, "you" would no longer exist as you know it, but be "turned into" part of the fabric of that universe. MEntity: There is an economy of exchange that is in effect among the living universes stacked together, and those black holes are key to how that works. MEntity: So there is no infinitesimally small object, and no infinitely huge object. There is are tiny particles that have incredibly small distances between them, and massive structures that are held within even greater space, but there are caps to physical universe. 02:22:33 PM JanaK: You have said repeatedly that Essence Recognition evolves Essence. How does this work? I can understand how Karma evolves Essence, and I can see how Essence Recognition feels amazing, but would like to hear how that evolves Essence. JanaK: (i am referring to your statement that there are two ways for Essence to evolve) MEntity: Essence Recognition is exactly that: the recognition of a greater context in which one exists. This is not the same thing as liking someone, or feeling good, or feeling close, though recognition can certainly bring those states, but this is about truly recognizing the validity of one's existence beyond the obvious. When one recognizes this, there is evolution. The evolution comes MEntity: because one is no longer blind or distracted by initial limitations. MEntity: For simplistic purposes, imagine this: MEntity: there are two ways Recognition can work in terms of evolving you - 1) imagine you are in a closed box. If you based your context of existence only on this, you will live and die in that box. Only upon exiting this box through death will your consciousness expand because now it knows that there is more than the box. Now, imagine that you recognized this while in the box, and found a way out. Your life just expanded, and your experiential range just expanded, and your context of existence just expanded. MEntity: In these cases, Recognition can happen while in the box, or after exiting it. In either case, evolution occurs. MEntity: 2) imagine you heard about a great costume party and dressed up in your best idea for that costume party. Now imagine that you have arrived and others are also in costume, but each had different ideas about what the theme was for the party. If you only walk around as if the party is themed on your own idea, you will miss much. However, if you explore and share, you will learn a great deal about the various themes. But imagine if you recognize that there is actually someone behind the costume, and you recognize this. MEntity: Recognition of the source of the costume and theme means expanding upon one's existence in a way that brings evolution, rather than simple submersion into party themes. MEntity: These are highly simplistic analogies, but they will work. MEntity: In short, recognizing your existence beyond the obvious, and recognizing the existence of another beyond the obvious, naturally provokes evolution. Kurt: Hey Michael, like Diane i'd like a description of the jovial body type nature. Perhaps with just a small tidbit of when the jovial nature is unhealthy or imbalanced. Of course within time constraints. MEntity: The Jovial Body Type is gravitational in Nature. Fragments tend to be drawn to those who are Jovial for different reasons than that of the Venusian. While Venusians are attractive in terms of intimacy and affection, Jovial is attractive in terms of confidence and permission. MEntity: At the positive end of this gravity, there is a confidence that is contagious and inspiring, bringing out a sense of ownership and responsibility for one's self-esteem. MEntity: At the negative end of this gravity, there is a greedy entitlement for being the center of attention, or presumption that the Jovial can speak for others or AT them. MEntity: So the Jovial Nature is excellent at being a source of expression for the self and for others, particularly for others who do not or will not speak up for themselves, but at the more challenging end of the spectrum, the Jovial can presume that what they have to say or express is inherently of value, interest, and meaning. MEntity: So the Jovial Nature is excellent at being a source of expression for the self and for others, particularly for others who do not or will not speak up for themselves, but at the more challenging end of the spectrum, the Jovial can presume that what they have to say or express is inherently of value, interest, and meaning. MEntity: Of course, there is more to say on this subject, as well, but we must conclude here for today. The channel has pushed as far as he can tonight. Good evening to each of you. MEntity: Goodbye, for now. Note: The last two signed up will have the opportunity to go first next Ask Michael if they wish -- ClaireC and Tyrone
