Ask Michael – January 4, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley ViP: There seems to be an orderly progression of "body" vs Plane (of existence) in the 3 lower planes: starting with the physical plane (in a physical body, as Personality) to the astral plane (in an astral body, as the Role in Essence), to the causal plane (as a reunited causal body, or Entity.) However, beyond the akashic plane, there are the Mental, Messianic, and Buddhaic planes. And, I don't know whether a reunited Cadre always "starts" on the Mental plane first, and then when its Energy Ring recombines, it does so on the Messianic plane, and so forth for Sphere and the Buddhaic plane, and so forth. How does the progression of reuniting go (from Cadre reuniting into Energy Ring and so forth), how do these correspond to the Mental/Messianic/Buddhaic bodies, and what Planes are they associated with? MEntity: If we are understanding your question correctly: PHYSICAL - Fragment; ASTRAL - Fragments/Entities; CAUSAL - Entities/Cadres; MENTAL - Cadres/Energy Rings; MESSIANIC - Spheres/Arrangements; BUDDHIC - Composition/Design. ViP: OK, thanks - I seem to remember reading though that Infinite Soul manifestations were those of Cadres and could occur from any of the 3 high planes, is that wrong? MEntity: No, that is correct. But keep in mind that the Infinite Soul must "step down" in energy, so it first manifests through one kind of grouping, then another, and so on to the fragment. ViP: OK, thank you. I can follow up more another time. MEntity: For instance, a fragment will channel the Entity of the Cadre of the Energy Ring of the Sphere through which Infinte Soul is manifesting. So it is a process. Brennetta: Hello Michael, I'd like elaboration of the Solar body type in a similar way to Kurtis's earlier question about the Jovial Body Appearance (including male and female celebrity examples of those close to 100%) MEntity: No Body Type is near 100% for anybody, but the Solar Body Type is rarely ever more than 25% of a Body Type. The Solar Body Type adds a kind of fuel, light, and radiance to any other Body Type it is mixed with, and allows for the mix of Body Types outside of linear progression. So a Venus with Solar would tend to be a "brighter" Venus than a Mars without Solar. By "brighter" we mean that there would tend to be more energy, more innocence, more of that radiance that is often quite attractive and magnetic or charismatic. Because of its pivotal nature, Solar allows for such mixes as Lunar/Solar/Saturn, which is usually not possible, since the progression of Body Type mixes are locked into Lunar/Venus/Mercury/Saturn/Martial/Jovial On its own, higher ranges of Solar can only be depicted in fictional portrayals, such body types as that of the fairies, "Tinkerbell," and some elven depictions are higher in Solar than is usually possible. Peter Pan is another example. In "real life" the Solar is often hidden by the other planets in the mix. Even Snow White, who is a fictional portrayal of high Solar has Pluto and Lunar dominant. In "real life" the higher the Solar, the more androgynous the effect. Angelina Jolie has high Solar with Saturn. Rupaul has high Solar with Saturn. In short, the appearance is not always as obvious as the effect. Solar is either quite radiant, or can be quite hyper-charged and abrasive. TyroneT: I'd also like to join in on the body type questions: Can you elaborate on the Saturnian Body Appearance, I'd also like celebrity examples of those close to 100% Saturnian if you could (male and female examples if possible) MEntity: Saturnian Body Types tend to be tall, but not always. However, even when not tall by literal standards, Saturnian Body Types can often SEEM even taller than they are. But their key consistency is in the durability. They can tend to endure extremes of temperature, environment, and threats more than most body types. When literally tall, the Body Type tends to be lean, slow, and deliberate. When figuratively tall, the Body Type tends to fall into the Nature area. In appearance, this Body Type can come across as either daunting or distanced, or come across as guiding and trustful. One of the more famous examples would be Abraham Lincoln, but there is also Angelina Jolie and Rupaul that was just mentioned. In addition to these, there are Yao Ming, Brooke Shields, Taylor Swift, Tilda Swinton, Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman,... Janet: Michael, last year at this time you gave us a list of the 7 elements that prompted learning in the year of the Priest, in the form of questions to ask ourselves. Can you provide the 7 elements that prompt our learning in this Scholar year? MEntity: What efforts did you make to validate your theories through experiences? Were you willing to be wrong as a way to learn? Are you telling the truth, or is your reality telling the truth? (if they are in conflict). Are you participating in life, or presuming you are a separate thing from your life? What conditions have you placed on receiving and giving Love in your life? Is your past a "guidepost" or have you turned it into a "hitchpost?" What do you find yourself distracted with in trying to get others to learn (about you, about themselves, about life)? To elaborate upon 3) are you contributing to the creation of your life, or do you feel you are the created result of your life. Is this a range of questions you were seeking? Janet: Yes. Thank you Michael! brian: Asking for Kurtis: Hi Michael, like last time with Jovial, I'd like an elaboration of the Martial Body Type Appearance, with some celebrities(male and female) that might show it off well. :) MEntity: The Martial Body Type in terms of Appearances will almost always have skin pigmentation in the form of freckles or similar. The more a body has freckles, the more it has Martial. The greater the combination that is red hair and light skin, the greater the Martial. Many "albino" individuals have high Martial, while mixed with Neptune or Uranus. Martial pigmentation is not limited to those with lighter skin, of course, but the key is in the differentiation between the base skin color and the pigmentation that are "freckles" or spots. Red undertones to skin color and hair is Martial, with the redder the more Martial. Examples might be Mick Hucknall, Julianne Moore, Olivia Munn, Michael Fassbender, Amy Adams, Robert Redford, Seth Green, Debra Messing, and with Martial Appearance bleeding into Nature there is Russell Crowe. JanaK: Referring to the session on Living as Essence, and more specifically to the Artisan part, how can one more specifically determine if one's life is a true story? I am talking about the part where you said “The Artisan who lives as Essence must then do the sometimes painful task of determining if the life is a true story, or if it is only based on a true story, or if it is a lie, altogether. Is this the story I meant to create? Or am I covering up my true story?" MEntity: The key for the Artisan is in the intention. When there is a disconnect between what is created and what is intended to be created, this can result in lying or delusion. The issue is not in the distance between intent and result, but in how that distance is handled. The Artisan Essence who is not lying will own the distance and do the work to close that distance, if possible. If the distance between intent and result is not possible to close, then that is owned, as well, and there is no lying about this. For example, it may have been intended to create a life as a pop star singer and this never came to pass. To the Artisan Essence, that is okay. It is not failure, and there is no reason to lie about it. Lying might show up in blaming the life, blaming others, faulting a lack of skills, etc. but owning it means that it simply was not created. It might still be possible, but the distance between intent and result is allowed to be true. JanaK: kind of taking responsibility for it then? MEntity: For the Artisan living a "true story," it means that not all intentions will have come to pass, but that this distance is allowed. Allowing that distance is not the same thing as conceding or resigning. The further the life is from what one intended, the more easily it can come to be in denial or delusion. However, the more that the distancing between intent and result is allowed and honored, the more focus the creative resources tend to be on closing that distance. When that distance is denied, creative resources are used to ignore that distance. When an Artisan is awake, these questions and considerations tend to be enough. For the Artisan that is asleep, no amount of questioning can tend to break through. It usually takes a turning point, intervention, or a complete crash. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.
Ask Michael Live Chat Open Floor Q&A November 2, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We were not "kidding" about the wave of short-circuiting issues over the next month or so. It is rather pervasive and growing. MEntity: We will leave the order up to Geraldine to manage. We will simply say that you may begin your questions. We are ready. TyroneT: My question is about human psychology. I know the Michael definition or explanation of male and female energy is a matter of focus versus creativity, but I don't remember exactly where I found it (it could have even been from another channel), but I'm sure I've seen somewhere the statement that one difference between human males and females is a tendency towards certain centering. TyroneT: One area that this knowledge for me would be applied are in the issues of the LGBT community, especially the transgender community, so if it's possible, I'd like connections to that. I doubt a full-enough elaboration will fit into fifteen minutes, so just a tidbit or foundational info from which to base later session questions on would be enough. TyroneT: Official Question: What are the psychological differences, tendencies, or characteristics inherent in having a physically male or female body/brain/subtle body? MEntity: First, we find there is little consistency among Gender correlation with Centering, but high consistency with cultural paradigms. Cultures and societies are predominantly of one Centering and/or Part over the others. Centering is not biological in any way. The Centering of an individual is not settled upon as a habitual form of navigation until the 2nd Internal Monad, and is then fairly stable, however, Centering is designed to be flexible and to change, not to be static. MEntity: Next, in response to your "official" question, we will say that the only differences between bodies in terms of male and female are the degrees of consciousness. The less-conscious a Personality, the more it's identity, behavior, processes, and navigation are based from the base functions of the sex. MEntity: To help in understanding this, a male body without an Essence is 100% Male, 100% focused, 100% linear, 100% the stereotype of the pervasive ideal of what it means to be a male Human on Earth. However, the Energy Ratio of an Essence alters this. This alteration begins at birth, and takes about 7 years for a full adjustment. MEntity: There will never be, and never has been, a Human who is 100% male or 100% female. TyroneT: ok. I'll ask about various lbgt phenomena later MEntity: However, regardless of one's Energy Ratio, if the Essence is rejected, then, say, if one has a High Female Energy, but is in a Male Body, that Male/Focused Energy will tend to dominate. MEntity: And by dominate, we do not mean that it would make the individual masculine or necessarily functioning by standards of behavior attributed to "males," but it will dominate in many ways, subtle or obvious. It will be aggressive, forceful, reactionary, etc. MEntity: This subject is far too complex and intricate for us to cover in 15 minutes. We know we have not covered a response to your question, but we suggest this be a topic for further exploration. 01:02:04 PM JanaK: Hello Michael. Can you please give generic tips for someone looking to move a country for the sake of personal and professional growth and adventure - other than obvious research? JanaK: I.e. how to gauge whether a particular place would be good for me - other than visiting it? JanaK: Or whether such radical move would even be good for me? JanaK: Or whether there are more desirable vectors where I am or where I am considering moving to? MEntity: Jana, to make a decision such as this, and to do so "blindly," would mean using one's intuition. Using one's intuition means LISTENING. By "listening" we mean to say that intuition is soft, subtle, and impulsive. It is not loud, pushy, or compulsive. So if you feel compelled to move somewhere, feel pushed to do so, and feel distracted by it, we suggest allowing that to come up and be acknowledged, then set gently aside as you listen to see what is beyond that noise. Your intuition may say the same things, but you just want to check in with that less-distracted, panicked, or anxious part of the self for validation of one's sense of direction. MEntity: In addition to this, if your compulsion to move is motivated by a feeling or idea that life will be better somewhere else, check in with yourself to see if that is valid. A change of scenery and geography can do wonders for altering the life in positive ways, but only if that change of scenery is the actual part that is key. In other words, moving to another location does not leave YOU or your life behind. You will still have to deal with your feelings, history, beliefs, wounds, etc. Our point being that if the move is motivated by escape from the self, then it is often more helpful to direct the movement internally, not externally. MEntity: If you can check in with yourself and listen to the softer voice of impulse and creativity within, and it is not hijacked by anxiousness and overeagerness to escape, then your next step is to look at the locations that appeal to you. MEntity: These locations appeal to you for various reasons, including potential, Agreements, Sequences, Vectors, etc., but they are only a part of the story. MEntity: Potential, Agreements, Sequences, Vectors, can be anywhere, and you could throw a dart at a map and these would spring up in activation relative to wherever you move. But there is validity to your sense of attraction to an area because those areas are already active with those elements. Though you can find Agreements, etc. anywhere, it can make a difference that they are already active and negotiated when you arrive. MEntity: So once you have concluded that you are choosing to move because you want to move, and not as a means of escape (unless there is a valid threat), then you can narrow your choices down by the simple sense of attraction to locations. Narrow these down to 3, and put up a symbolic image of each so that you can see these on a daily basis. MEntity: As you pass these symbols on a daily basis over a week or so, note which one your eye is drawn to the most. Be mindful that your eye may be drawn only because of the image you picked, but this will not matter. Once you notice which one is standing out, and you play with the idea that this is the location you will aim to move, you will feel the pang of resistance to that place versus one of the others. MEntity: From there, it is a matter of honoring your choice. 01:22:08 PM Kurtis: Hey Michael, like last time with Saturnine body type health, would you please elaborate on the martial body type health? Thanks. MEntity: Martial Body Type Health corresponds to the Adrenals of the body. This means that the Martial Body Type can be greatly affected by its capacity for management of stress. In fact, while stress is a factor for all body types, in the Martial Body Type, it is far more immediately converted into effects. MEntity: Various forms of Catecholamines are released on a regular basis in response or reaction to experiences. This range of hormones are responses and reactions to stress. These tend to have the Martial Body Type health in a constant state of fight or flight, regarding experiences. MEntity: Hormones that manage various minerals and water content of the body are connected to the Adrenals, and have direct effect upon the individual's blood pressure. Other effects from the Adrenals are reflected in the metabolism, as well as the differentiating processes between the male bodies and female bodies in Androgens. MEntity: When this is balanced, the Martial Body Type is long-suffering, enduring, and can manage to navigate some of the most debilitating obstacles of health and existence. MEntity: When this is imbalanced, it can show up as extreme lethargy, constant stress and anxiety, hyper-agitation and over-reaction, along with extremes of anger, temper, and depression. MEntity: In some extremes, there can come to be a developed hatred and self-loathing for the body as it is represented by its gender, and this can lead to self-mutilation and rejection of the gender. MEntity: Overall, the Martial Body Type is all about the physical manifestation of all energy that passes through that body, whether in thought or emotion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catecholamine 01:44:04 PM scott: Michael, i have a question about ORIGINALITY...i'm sure many artists suffer with this block of needing to be original. though upon looking at my favourite artists i wouldn't say their work is at all without influence...so what is it we are responding to when we say something is original? Is it the enthusiasm from the artist making it? Is there such thing as originality? I would love your take on originality to help put an end to this ancient crisis of the artist once and for all." MEntity: Originality is valid. Originality does not preclude influence and inspiration. There is a difference between originality that is inspired, and one who is copying or imitating. If one of our students were to write a book about his or her experiences of our teaching and conveyed that in a way that teaches what was learned, it will not matter that the core of what is being taught did not originate with that student. What matters is his or her original take on that, as he or she was inspired. Not even our own teaching originates from us, but is utterly original. We only teach our take on the truth, love, and energy that originated beyond us. But our teaching is utterly original in its form. MEntity: Originality is what one does with one's inspiration. MEntity: Beyond this, the judgments will continue to be subjective in terms of what is "truly" original, or not, but the dividing line fairly clearoriginality is inspired, while non-originality is a copy, imitation, or mimicking. MEntity: For instance, one does not need be inspired to put together a model airplane, or to sing a song that is a pop formula created by someone else. One may feel inspired, but the form taken is not. It is copied. It is mimicked. It is an attempt to capture what was inspired in the original. MEntity: Andy Warhol was an artist with originality, and he exemplifies the precarious, but clear line between copy and creation. MEntity: Consider one more thing when pondering originalityyou are utterly original. You are utterly unique. You are a single idea that will never be replicated. Yet you are not new. You are an evolution. You are built upon inspiration. You are not a copy, though "you" have existed multiple times. Art is similar. MEntity: Let your art, your originality, be an evolution built upon inspiration, and you will relieve yourself of this perplexing and distracting concern. 01:58:41 PM Juni: From a previous transcript Juni: Though it is rare, there are some fragments who do not settle on one particular Chief Feature, but these are usually cases of what some call "Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder," Juni: Schizophrenia," and "Multiple Personalities." This is due to a breakdown in communication among the Physiological aspects of self (Obsessive-Compulsive), the Emotional aspects of self Juni: (Schizophrenia), or Intellectual aspects of self (Multiples). Juni: Can you elaborate further on this with regard to OCD and how it might be possible to get the parts "back in communication" again? MEntity: The breakdown in physiological aspects of the self has to do with the preoccupation with the idea that nearly every single thing one does has a direct and relevant effect upon something else. It is a distraction with absolute control. It develops out of the sense that one is directly responsible for everything in some way. In many cases of "OCD," there was a point in the 2nd Internal Monad where the psyche drew a connection between a terrible thing and a reckless action. MEntity: That reckless action could have been anything, and often it is a completely unrelated and irrelevant action. MEntity: So the body and personality begin to breakdown the sense of cohesive picture of the actions in the life. To manage one part of the life, action in another must be kept under control, and so on, cascading in effect across the life so that the individual is mired in meaningless and repetitive actions that act like a web woven through the life that keeps it in precarious balance. MEntity: To bring these aspects back into cohesion would depend on the extent to which there is fracture. MEntity: For clinical OCD, intervention is often required, with a retraining of the mind and actions so that one can learn that life is not precariously held in balance by these repetitive and consuming actions. MEntity: For milder cases of OCD, it can be a matter of asking for help from a loved one, and making the effort. The help would come in the form of the loved one playing a trusted, but random force in the life. He or she would alter or interrupt patterns, and the one with OCD would do his or her best to LIVE THROUGH IT. MEntity: This is a highly simplistic description of the process, but over time, after one lives through a rearranged towel rack, a messy book shelf, and unmade bed, or had their hand washing, counting, tapping, etc. interrupted enough, the body begins to return to a state of cohesion. MEntity: Again, this is a subject that may require a more dedicated format, but this is our response in this limited format. 02:14:23 PM brian: Hi Michael. How can one create an effective anchor to ground themselves during anxiety or stress? MEntity: There are two ways to do so, Brianinternally and/or externally. It would always do one well to nurture the internal grounding, first, considering that external forms are not always accessible, but it is helpful to identify external forces for grounding that one can use for support. MEntity: Internal grounding methods to counter stress and anxiety would vary from individual to individual, but one can turn to the Attitude for help in determining methods for help with anxiety and stress. MEntity: When one is anxious or stressed, it is often a result of falling into the negative pole of one's Attitude. MEntity: The key to grounding for recovery from that stress and anxiety can come from the positive pole of the partner Attitude. brian: How might that work for the Pragmatist? MEntity: For example, the Spiritualist has fallen into BELIEF. Anxiety can come from deciding what is true over knowing what is true. When one decides what is true without knowing what is true, it can be quite precarious in terms of anxiety and stress. To help the person in BELIEF to move back into VERIFICATION, the use of TRANQUILITY (the positive pole of Stoic) can be key. MEntity: Internal Tranquility can come in the form of conscious breath, stopping all action, closing the eyes, and visualizing flying or floating. External Tranquility can come in the form of a bath, a conscious shower, with the flow of water moving over the body coming into focus to help dissolve the hardened beliefs that are causing stress. MEntity: Then the Spiritualist can ask himself or herself again, "is this really true, or do I just think it is?" MEntity: From that grounded space, Verification can come. MEntity: In a more dedicated format, we can go through all of the Attitudes to offer suggestions, but this is the general idea. Each of you can come up with creative ways to exemplify what it would mean for you to internally and externally use the Positive Pole of the partner Attitude as a suggestion for how to ground yourself from stress and anxiety. MEntity: Look at that partner Positive Pole and ask yourself what it would mean for that to be implemented internally and externally. We trust your creative ideas would help you to find what works for you. 02:30:24 PM DianeHB: Hi Michael, could you elaborate on the Mercurial Body Type Health like you did for Kurtis? MEntity: In much the same way that the Martial Body Type reflects an immediate translation of action/movement into form in the body, the Mercurial Body Type can reflect immediate translation of idea/intellect into form in the body. The Mercurial Body Type health correlates to the Thyroid, and is a communication system throughout the body, since the Thyroid regulates key hormones that relate to brain chemistry. MEntity: For those with Mercurial Body Types of Health, it will be vital to these bodies to always express ideas, to communicate and share and exchange in ways that are not just to satisfy the personality, but to keep the body healthy. Mercurial Body Types are highly susceptible to degradation of health if expression is blocked, ignored, or distorted by misunderstanding or lack of capacity to be clear. MEntity: Mercurial Body Types must keep the ideas and thoughts flowing in and out of the brain in a way that is as vital to that individual as the flow of blood in and out of the heart. MEntity: For those who suffer from an imbalance of the Thyroid, it is often reflective of an imbalance in the life regarding lack of permission for expression, or lack of stimuli for ideas, or panicked and over-eager, hyperactive processes that cannot be expressed well. MEntity: The Thyroid regulates key hormones relative how the brain uses these, which are adrenaline, ephinephrine, and dopamine, so when these are out of balance, the body can start to take on weight alterations that reflect the weight of thoughts, ideas, expressions that are not moved out of the body. MEntity: We will conclude here for tonight. We know that we can only respond briefly to some of your questions that are quite broad, or requiring further exploration, so consider these responses as invitations for further exchange, and not as conclusive responses. MEntity: Good evening to each of you.
