  1. Michael Speaks: Healing and Healers May 8, 2011 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here now. We can begin on the subject of Healing & Healers. We will, first, define "Healing" and "Healers." We will define Healing as "a return to, extraction of, or an imposition of Order from Chaos" and Healer as "that which, or those whom, facilitate the return to, extraction of, or imposition of Order from Chaos." Wounding, however it manifests, is Chaos, or at least seeming Chaos. There are really only 7 ways in which a Body can die, or be wounded. These 7 ways can overlap, and some may be able to refine these to a greater degree than we have through this channel, but those 7 Basic Ways of Wounding/Dying would be: Illness, Poisoning, Impact, Impaling, Suffocation, Starvation/Dehydration, and Natural/Shutdown. Each of these can bring wounding or death, and can be brought to any Body, including the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and "Spiritual" Bodies. Some of the terms would not be so literal in terms of the less-tangible Bodies, but are relevant terms. Death and Wounding are parts of the experience of the Higher Moving Center, which is the spectrum between Chaos and Beauty. Beauty is simply the recognition of patterns versus the lack of recognition of patterns that is Chaos. We use the term "recognition" because often the difference between Chaos and Beauty is a matter of recognition, or perception, and is a relative state. There are those who "suffer" wounding in ways that "should" bring about a great deal of Chaos, but those individuals return to, extract from, or impose a new order from the chaos in a way that is HEALING. There are those who have "no reason" to suffer and have lost all recognition of order, or beauty, in the life, and these individuals can truly be wounded. And so it is that the differences between Wounding and Healing are as "simple" as the differences between Chaos and Beauty. And so it is that the difference between Wounding and Death are the differences between Chaos and Beauty, as well. Wounding is Chaos. Death is Order/Beauty. Every Personality and Lifetime will explore the spectrum between Order and Chaos, but will always end in Order as a means for Review in the afterlife, and Death is that process of returning everything back to Order, or Beauty. Order can also be returned within the life through HEALING, and since not everyone wants to die as a means to regain Order, there is a necessity for HEALERS. This necessity is vital enough that it is one of the 12 Primary Support Positions within any Circle of Support. This means that every single fragment has at least one Healer accessible at all times in every incarnation and beyond. This may seem a rather sweeping generalization as there are many who suffer without apparent access to healing, but this apparent lack of access is a result of complications that are often unnecessary and are products of choice. A society can become rather powerful in imprinting various individuals to only accept the standardized methods and providers of Healing, which may or may not have helped. The Healing that a fragment may require is not always as obvious as his or her wounding. But the Healer and Healing that a fragment most-requires is ALWAYS accessible in some way. The first key in accessing that is through the realization of the fact that no Healer or Healing can actually HEAL; they can only facillitate Healing and Healing Methods. The only one who can ever truly heal you, is you. The individual can always override a Healer and Healing. However, the necessity for Healers is because often the first step to True Healing is in the ASKING FOR HELP. Wounding, or the plunge into Chaos within a lifetime, is a vital part of the experience of living because it is one of the few states or experiences that can be explored that provokes the Universal Truth of Oneness, or in simpler terms, the fact that you are not alone. Ever. Even if the Wounding leads to Death, or if someone's asking for help is still met with Death, the profound validity of that Oneness and the necessity for reaching out, is often registered in ways that are never lost by Essence. The 7 Ways to Die, or 7 Methods of Wounding, correspond to the Axes in ways that can often shed light for Healing and for Healers. Illness and Poisoning are Inspirational-based Woundings/Deaths. Impaling/Impact are Action-based Wounding/Deaths. Suffocation/Starvation are Expression-based Woundings/Deaths; and Shutting Down/Natural methods are Assimilative. Some of these are obvious, and some may not be so clear, and while we offer up these correlations, we will not say that they are rules or static associations. For example, we can say that MOST Illnesses or intaking of Poisons are MOSTLY related to issues of Self-Esteem, which are extensions of the Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. This kind of statement can be explored in a multitude of ways. The immune system is directly connected to Self-Esteem, and so it goes that any fluctuation in Self-Esteem is a fluctuation in Immunity. Self-deprecation is almost always at the core of Illness. The toxins that one takes in without question or concern through his or her eating of poor diet, might be an example of Arrogance at the core of slow Poisoning of the body. And so on... There are only 4 ways through which any of these 7 Methods of Wounding/Death can be implemented: Suicide, Homicide, Accident, and Natural, each corresponding to an Axis; Inspirational, Action, Expression, and Assimilative, respectively. Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers. And there are only ever 3 methods of Healing: through Truth, Love, or Energy. Facilitating Order within the Chaos of the Truth, Love, or Energy of an individual. This means that Healers range far beyond those who actively practice Healing, or those who specifically work with the various Bodies. In fact, every single one of you are Healers in at least one other Fragment's Circle of Support in every life. If this were not so, then Healers and Healing would not be so accessible to every fragment. One does not have to identify with being a "healer" to be a Healer. If you help to bring Order to someone's Chaos, you are a Healer. If you help someone to experience, comprehend, see, feel, or hear the Beauty that is inherent in any part of his or her life, you are a Healer. Anyone who can help others to bring Order to the Truth, Love, or Energy in someone's life, is a Healer. Whether this is done actively and consciously, or passively and unconsciously, does not matter. And so it is that each of you will always be in a position to HEAL YOUR OWN LIFE, which by definition simply means to bring Beauty to the Chaos of it, whether this be in Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, or Spiritual form. Bringing Beauty or Order to any part of your life helps to bring that Healing into every Body you are. Often, for instance, the Chaos that is in your Physical Body can only be masked by the treatments offered for the symptoms that this Body exhibits, but the True Healing would come from the Beauty/Order that is brought to your Emotional Body/Life. Much of what passes for Healing is only Treatment. Treatment is necessary, and is not a "bad thing," but it is not Healing. Understanding the various correlations above, and the 3 methods of Healing as they correlate to Wounding, can also shed light on the requirements for True Healing. For instance, those who are Wounded by Illness or Posioning usually require True Love for True Healing. Those who are wounded by Impaling or Impact often require True Order for True Healing; those who are wounded by Suffocation/Starvation often require The Truth for for True Healing. Keep in mind that there is a limitation on language here that can make some of these correlations seem confusing, so we encourage creative understanding here so that the terms are not always literal. For instance, it might sound strange that Impaling or Impact requires True Order/Beauty, but if you think of these Wounding correlations as extensions of Martyrdom and Impatience, both rooted in fears of losing Control, you might see why any healing would require a shift in understanding the nature of Beauty and Order. A fragment who is thrown through a windsheild because of his Impatience might be an example. A fragment who is rendered lifeless because of the "impaling" of her heart by the rejection of a loved one might be another example. Being Wounded and Being Healed are MESSY. There is no hard, clean, perfect correlation, and there is often a great deal of overlapping of correlations, so we offer these insights only as guidelines for those who explore Healing, or need Healing. ALL Wounding is a progression that begins INTELLECTUALLY, then EMOTIONALLY, and then PHYSICALLY. This means that if Wounding has come to the level of Physicality, it is almost assured that there is Wounding "up through" the Emotions and Intellect. When we say "All wounding," we mean ALL. Even "Accidents." This does not mean that Wounding is a fault of the Wounded, but it is often a result of a path of choices, internally and externally, that led to the state that allowed for, or created, the Wounding. Even in cases of Homicide. Again, this is not a matter of fault or choices made on obvious levels, but there is something to the fact that two people can be in the same place at the same time doing the same things and only one is Wounded. [liiona24] Please comment on the validity Of the Reconnection As brought forth by Eric Pearl as " new" Healing energy There is no "new" healing energy. All Healing is essentially the return of Order from Chaos, however that is described or packaged, tangibly or intangibly. There are many illnesses in modern times that are susceptible to "miracles" or "energy healing" because the illness never truly existed in the dimension from which it was diagnosed, such as AIDS, Cancers, several other chronic issues. This is not to say that there are no such things as collapses of immune systems, or Cancers, or other chronic issues, but those categories have a percentage of diagnoses that are valid diagnoses at one point, but because the "illness" is not Physically-rooted, the return of Order to the Emotions, or Intellect, can "cure" the "illness." Often, the return of Order to the Intellect and Emotion does not require Physical Healing, or Treatment, but a simple shift in beliefs or feelings. Energetic Healing can ONLY ever return order to the Intellect or Emotion, which may then result in being reflected Physically, of course. When we say "Energetic" here, we refer to those practices that would not require Physical contact in any way. In short, to clarify with Marion: we think the idea of "The Reconnection" is more likely a "Repackaging" of ideals and energies that have always been available. This is not to say that the repackaging is "bad," because even our own teaching requires repackaging for different students with different capacities for hearing us. [Nicholas] When Dr. Pearl and others refer to "new" healing, could they be referring to the validity that as a collective, we are opening up to more possibilities of healing as a reflection of the shift to Mature Soul paradigm? In response to Nicholas: we cannot speak on the behalf of the fragment who is known as "Dr. Pearl," or his associates, but we can say that a Mature-based Paradigm would have far more validity to the concept of "Energetic" healing, since most Emotional and Intellectual Wounding would also be considered as valid. In a Young-based paradigm, most Healing is only considered valid on the levels of the tangible. It is only in recent years, relatively speaking, that the concept of Therapy was considered something of validity."Therapy," in terms of Psychologists, Pscyho-, etc. [TimW] Can you please elaborate a little more on what you said, "Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers"? Possibly a couple of examples with relation to physical "energetic" healing (if time permits)? For example, Tim, those who are wounded from attempted Homicide would clearly benefit from healing that focuses on the Action Axis, so that a sense of Order for that individual's Time or Space is vital, or put another way: that the Martyrom and Impatience is addressed. Those who suffer from the wounding of attempted Homicides do well to have had their sense of Control brought into focus for their lives in some way, because Homicide, or Impaling/Impact, on a Body CAN throw the entire life into absolute lack of control. For those who are wounded by the methods of Suicide, it is vital that Inspiration is brought back into his or her life. Suicides are usually the result of Inspirational elements collapsing into Chaos, so a return to Order in that context can help bring about True Healing. We realize that "Suicide" is also the Negative Pole of Self-destruction, which is an Expression Axis Chief Feature, but this is another example of Context. In the context of Methods for implementing Wounding, Suicide correlates to Inspiration. In the context of Results of Fear, Suicide correlates to Expression. For those who are Wounded by Accidents, there is a necessity for those fragments to understand "the message" in the "Accident," as all Accidents are Expressions, or Messages. In fact, there are no "accidents," but it is a valid category for understanding how Wounding is implemented, and Accidents equal Messages. Healers, then, would help that fragment to understand what "lesson" or "message" might have been in the accident. [Diane_H] Can you explain the difference between Intellectual and Emotional healing? Are they often intertwined? Intellectual Healing would require the Order returned to the Intellect, or the Intellectual Center to return to the Positive Pole of INSIGHT. This is usually a matter of returning the fragment to a state of honesty about his or her life in a way that brings that Insight, instead of a chronic state of REASON. A chronic state of Reason will bring the Intellect into a constant state of overdrive, looking for patterns that are not there, or creating patterns that are not valid, forcing justifications, reasons, explanations for that which is not understood. This, then, can lead to affect the Emotional Center in a way that pulls the Emotions into a chronic state of Negative Pole, which is Sentimentality. Sentimentality is the confusion and blurring between Symbols and Meanings, and when Symbols and Meanings become confused, Beliefs are generated. And so the Intellect that forced a false pattern then begins to believe it in the Emotions. A simplistic example would be in one who might Think that someone's intentions were to hurt her, and so begins to believe that this person did hurt her, because she can feel that hurt. But the truth will have been that she forced an explanation or a reason for someone else's choices that she did not like, and then the person who symbolized "Love" for her is gone, so that means "love" is also gone, and now she has become Intellectually and Emotionally wounded. To bring Healing to her Emotionally, she will have to regain the Order that allows for a person to symbolize Love, but does not confuse the conduit of Love for Love, itself. [Diane_H] So it could be said that Intellectual wounding comes from one's interpretation of symbols, and Emotional wounding is the emotion that result from it? If the Healing is not addressed Intellectually or Emotionally, it can then move into Physicality, and she will either open up to, or create a path to, Homicide, Suicide, Accident, or Natural methods of implementing one of the 7 Woundings. Yes, Diane, that could be one way of describing a pattern, though we might clarify the statement to read: Intellectual Wounding can come from False or Forced Interpretation, and Emotional Wounding is the Belief/Feelings that support in that Falsehood or Forced Interpretation. [Kathryn41] I assume that 'wounding' can also be a 'choice' for a life experience, but how often does the choice to experience one type of wounding lead to a collateral type of wounding, for example, a consequence of choosing a body type that allows for the chosen wounding to occur but experiencing an additional injury/illness that came along because of that body type? We will say here that it is rare that Wounding is CHOSEN, though sometimes, it is. What is a more accurate way to understand the nature of Choice, in this regard, is that Wounding is often a RESULT of Choices. [Kathryn41] the example I can use is a child with type 1 diabetes - born with the condition - a chosen condition more easily manifested in lunar body and then later in life experiencing another type of injury for which the lunar body is especially susceptible A Body Type is chosen that may have predispositions to certain health issues or deformities, but it was not necessarily the health issues or deformities that were chosen, but that they were hooked in to other choices that were more important as priorities. For instance, an Essence may have thought it was a great idea, or a great method for balancing Karma, to choose a Body Type that may lend itself to a sort of dependency that allowed for kindness, patience, and Love to come into the experiences of the Personality, from within and without. Often these "great ideas" go in all kinds of directions once the life is in motion, but that is part of the Chaos and Beauty that is inherent in any life, even in the most-perfect of body with the most-perfect of plans and Karma-free life. [Oscar] What would those wounded by natural/shutting down need for True Healing, or is there no healing possible since it's natural? UNDERSTANDING. That is all. Those who are Wounded by Natural Causes/Shutting Down can often do best with a simple bit of comfort in Wisdom shared with him or her or from him or her. In terms of Wounding/Dying, Natural Causes/Shutting Down is about bringing comprehension to the moment about the life before exiting, and this can show up as the life "flashing before their eyes," or from loved ones around the bed side, etc. In terms of Wounding/Dying, it might even be better understood as "Gratitude" that is a part of the Healing. In terms of Implementation, with something like a Natural Disaster which may bring Impact, Impaling, Illness, Poison, etc, it can still be helpful for those who experienced that Implementation to grasp the nature of Nature, so that it is not seen as personal. Though it will always be the most-helpful to focus on the actual Method of Wounding, for Healing purposes. [VLS] Is there any healing that can be done with the dying involving touch, if so can you advise the best approach-thank you ALL Physical forms of Healing affect Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies, whereas Emotional Healing can only affect Emotional and Intellectual Bodies, and Intellectual Healing is limited to Intellectual Bodies. This is because the denser the form of Healing, the more it can be accessed by the subtler Bodies. This is not to say that Emotional Healing cannot bring about Physical Healing, but it would not be direct. Physical Healing, or rather, having a Physical Medium for Healing, can bring about multiple layers of Energy for use in the multiple bodies. For instance, your Touch can bring with it the Comfort that is of the Physical Level of Healing, the Affection that is the Emotional Level of Healing, and the Permission that is the Intellectual Level of Healing. We are speaking to you about a very specific kind of Touch that you bring, and not all Touch would bring that same kind of Healing. A simple resting of the hand on the person who is exiting is enough, and in some cases, the moving of the energy of the bodies through use of swirls and various contact points, can be the form that is used. We will clarify here that all Bodies are interconnected in many ways, so the Healing that is offered without Physicality does not mean it will not help the Physical Bodies. And not all Physical contact is a form of Healing, but is often forms of Treatment. For instance, the Emergency Room of a Hospital is mostly-filled with Treatments, not Healing. Healing often comes later. [DavidB] Someone asked me to pose this question: "What makes one healer more effective than another?" RESONANCE. There is no Healing between a Healer and The Wounded without Resonance. This is why even the most "whackadoodle" of false healers can bring about such "miracles" (which is a term to describe false or misunderstood forms of Beauty from Chaos) because there is Resonance between the two fragments. And it is why the consistency of even the most powerful Healers cannot facilitate Healing for everyone, because there must be Resonance. Resonance can only come through Empathy, which is built from Experience, which may or may not always come from within the current lifetime. In other words, one can only truly facilitate Healing for that which he or she has already healed within himself or herself, even if that healing came in other lives. We know this is a rather broad topic, but we think we have covered enough tonight for some provocation of thought and exploration that may shed insight into the experience of Healing and Wounding. We will conclude here. Goodnight to each of you. Goodbye.

    Solar Body Type - Appearance

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael - January 4, 2015] Brennetta: Hello Michael, I'd like elaboration of the Solar body type ... (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. Lucy Liu has high Solar with Mars. 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.

    Martial Body Type -- Nature

    [Excerpt from Martial Nature Body Type] Bobby: For the rest of my time, would you expand upon the Martial/Nature body type for me like you did the Lunar/Nature body type for VIP? I'd like to add mine to the pool of info that is being gathered on the different body types. You started that off for him with something like "At the heart of the Lunar Body Type is a struggle with..." and continued on from there so I'm looking for something similar except for Martial/Nature. Based upon what he got, this may even be report option for Troy to offer. MEntity: We understand. To start out with your requested phrasing, we might say that at the heart of the Martial Body Type is struggle (and strength) of constantly navigating through life by assessing what NOT to do. The Martial Body Type is an Active body type, so it is naturally seeking stimulations, pleasures, experiences, etc, but it is an Active Negative Body Type, so it tends to focus more on what NOT to do, than on what TO DO. This might be the like the difference between emphasizing NOT to touch the hot burner, NOT to spill the hot water, NOT to bump the pot off of the burner, and having all of this emphasized out of proportion to the joy of having tea. There is a constant process of self-monitoring, self-consciousness, even to the point of micro-managing, but always on the side of what SHOULD NOT be done. This can lead to great amounts of defensiveness and reactionary outburst that are always just below the surface of the skin, particularly provoked if there is direction or correction given that is repeating what is already a part of the strict, Martial navigation. Martial Nature does not mind being informed of something new to do or not to do, but do not respond well to being told what to do or not to do if he or she is already doing or not doing that. Bobby: LOL MEntity: This Nature is a strength, as well, if this is processed compassionately and gently as a form of navigation. When it is processed as a strength, it is merely a standard of integrity and responsibility. If this standard of integrity and responsibility is owned, and managed compassionately and gently, it also frees the fragment from expanding the range of the micro-managing, critical, and constant assessment of what others are doing wrong, or doing that should not be done. Often the Martial Nature will distract itself from its own constant self-criticism by moving that outwardly, even if privately, to those of others. What the Martial Nature eventually learns is that knowing what NOT to do is learned precisely BY DOING WHAT NOT TO DO. Do not touch the hot burner was not learned by being told not to touch it. It was learned by touching it. In fact, if a Martial Nature is told what not to do, and he or she has not learned not to do it through doing it, then the thing that was told not to do becomes quite distracting to DO. So it can be quite a volatile form of navigation for the Martial Nature. If he is told what not to do when he already know what not to do, it can be offensive. If he is told what not to do when he has not even done it, then he will be compelled to do it so he knows not to do it. On his or her own. The Martial Nature processes experiences via the Adrenals, and because of this can develop an enduring, high tolerance for stress that is not familiar to any other Body Type. It can be quite foreign to the Martial as to how others can be so upset, so thrown off, so disoriented by the simplest of struggles or challenges when measured against their own capacity for managing stress. The way the Martial Nature learns empathy for this is through his or her own "meltdowns" and reactions. If there can be drawn a connection between their own breaking point for stress, and calibrate this to understand that others may simply have different points, then the empathy can come. Martial Nature may develop more endurance for stress, but even they have breaking points, and, ironically, these may come even more often than they do for others, but the Martial Nature will justify their own over those of others, because they usually handle stress quite well, so it is presumed there must be a valid reason for their reaction when it is not handled well. Bobby: lots of LOLs here :-) MEntity: For this reason, the older soul in a Martial Body Type will tend to bond with, or surround herself or himself with, those who have difficulty managing stress, to not only learn more about compassion and patience and kindness for the variation in stress management, but also to keep his or her own breakdowns from being too showcased.

    Venusian Appearance

    [Excerpt from private session, posted with permission] Paulyboy: Would the Michaels please comment on my body type, what it is, what that entails (Y'all have previously mentioned that my body type was a part of my high energy... I am assuming this is a part of my "multi fold energy levels" that won't be generally within the norm), and how I can better take care of my body, diet, exercise, etc. wise. I'm curious to see if I could similarly "optimize" things (from Nicholas's channeling) by eating lots of dark leafy greens, fruits, and then some legumes and rice, or similar, or what exactly was good for my body type (I'm assuming very similar, if not the same). I feel more exercise would be very good for me, but I haven't chosen to "exercise" that option so far. :/ Anyway, thanks :) MEntity: In your case, we think your Body Type is composed of Venusian, Mercurial, Saturnine and Neptunian. ... Your Venusian Body Type is your Primary Body Type, in terms of Appearance, while your Mercurial is your Glandular/Health, and your Saturnine is Behavior or Nature. In terms of Appearance, the Venus Body Type gives you an approachable, warm, and inviting presence that is difficult to resist for many. The Venus Body Type deeply craves and gives affection, always willing to embrace. This Body Type tends to not only accentuate whatever this person feels is beautiful about himself or herself, but also brings out in others what that person feels is beautiful about himself or herself. ... In terms of diet, besides the obvious that is true for all bodies, such as higher portions of greens, vegetables, and fruits, in your case, the allowance for "comfort foods" is vital. Venusian Body Types require comfort in their diet, or whatever is eaten loses its value. This is not to encourage indulgence, of course, but to say that it important for the overall bodies to ensure that foods and even settings in which one eats those foods, is comforting and securing. Beyond that, we suggest exploring the supportive or detrimental foods that affect the Thyroid. As far as exercise, it would do you well to incorporate a form of Yoga into your lifestyle, and if possible, in a group. Your body "loves" to be around others, and allowing your exercising to be a group experience that is not strenuous, but pleasant and comforting among people, can do wonders for you on all levels.

    Mercurial Health

    [Excerpt from private session, posted with permission] Paulyboy: Would the Michaels please comment on my body type, what it is, what that entails (Y'all have previously mentioned that my body type was a part of my high energy... I am assuming this is a part of my "multi fold energy levels" that won't be generally within the norm), and how I can better take care of my body, diet, exercise, etc. wise. I'm curious to see if I could similarly "optimize" things (from Nicholas's channeling) by eating lots of dark leafy greens, fruits, and then some legumes and rice, or similar, or what exactly was good for my body type (I'm assuming very similar, if not the same). I feel more exercise would be very good for me, but I haven't chosen to "exercise" that option so far. :/ Anyway, thanks :) MEntity: In your case, we think your Body Type is composed of Venusian, Mercurial, Saturnine and Neptunian. ... In terms of Health, the Mercurial is important to consider as it describes the emphasis on the Thyroid. Any Mercurial Body Type would do well to monitor the Thyroid. In this case, it can show up as a clear-thinking, excellent communicator, and high energy, but when not functioning well, it can show up as extremes between lethargy and anxiousness, fidgety, restless, confused, overwhelmed, as if "hopped up" on caffeine.

I feel more exercise would be very good for me, but I haven't chosen to "exercise" that option so far. :/ Anyway, thanks :) MEntity: In your case, we think your Body Type is composed of Venusian, Mercurial, Saturnine and Neptunian. The Neptunian would be minimal, but it does not take much energy from the Outer Planets to have effect. In your case, this would show up as adding a constant element of fantasy, daydreaming, and other-worldliness to even your best efforts to be a solid, physical, emotional and intellectual presence. The only ways around it would be to suppress it or to ignore it, but this can lead to many issues, or you can embrace it and manage it, which would show up as directing this force of other-worldliness into creative projects, healing, or any other means of bringing it into tangibility. The force of the Neptunian influence can weigh on any fragment who does not find a way to bring it into tangibility, and if it does not find that tangibility, it can show up as a constant disenchantment, or behaviors that are so skewed away from social norms that it can make it difficult to be around.

    Solar Health

    [Excerpt from a private session, posted with permission] NicSweeney: I had my body type channeled as primary Mercurial, secondary Venusian, tertiary Saturnian... I do resonate with Mercurial... Not sure about the other two. So could you give me my body types and information about how to keep these particular body types healthy and balanced... specifically in reference to my unique make-up? MEntity: Yes, we can say here that you are Mercurial/Venusian/Solar. Primary/Secondary/Tertiary; or Appearance/Nature/Glandular. Your Tertiary Body Type is Solar, and this is directly linked to your Thymus as a medium of processing the status of your entire Being, in general. The Thymus is directly linked to immunity, and by extension to your overall state of self-esteem. This planetary influence in the tertiary realm usually shows up as someone who "never gets sick," but does tend to carry chronic issues for some length of time, or when they get sick, they "really get sick." More than other body types, this influence is an almost "real-time" reflection of where one is in terms of self-esteem, trust, and confidence in various areas of the life.

    Venusian Nature

    [Excerpt from a private session, posted with permission] NicSweeney I had my body type channeled as primary Mercurial, secondary Venusian, tertiary Saturnian... I do resonate with Mercurial... Not sure about the other two. So could you give me my body types and information about how to keep these particular body types healthy and balanced... specifically in reference to my unique make-up? MEntity: Yes, we can say here that you are Mercurial/Venusian/Solar. Primary/Secondary/Tertiary; or Appearance/Nature/Glandular. ... The Secondary Body Type describes your psychology and how you tend to physically relate to yourself and others. In this case, your Venusian influences bring warmth, softness, charisma, affection, kindness, and overall general vulnerability and eagerness to be accessible. This is probably your "healthiest" body type influence, and it is one upon which you rely a great deal. When it is unhealthy, or imbalanced, it is that part of you who at best is disoriented by the shocking lack of effort by others to help create common ground, and at worst either shuts down with numbness or is devastated by offense or rejection.

    Mercury in Appearance

    [Excerpt from a private session, posted with permission] NicSweeney I had my body type channeled as primary Mercurial, secondary Venusian, tertiary Saturnian... I do resonate with Mercurial... Not sure about the other two. So could you give me my body types and information about how to keep these particular body types healthy and balanced... specifically in reference to my unique make-up? MEntity: Yes, we can say here that you are Mercurial/Venusian/Solar. Primary/Secondary/Tertiary; or Appearance/Nature/Glandular. On a Primary Level, this gives you a physical restlessness that extend throughout the bodies, which includes the heart and mind. NicSweeney: Yep. MEntity: This restlessness can be productive or frustrating, which would be what we might say are positive and negative poles in this case. The way you could help yourself manage this is to always discern between repetition that brings no results vs effort or action that brings results or solutions. "Is this familiar?" might be a simple way to ask if you need to change directions, and also to learn how long is fair to remain in one direction before trying another. You can tend to build momentum and investment, which can lead to great breakthroughs, but more often to frustration and freneticism. What your bodies have learned is the long way to breakthroughs, instead of having learned that there are shortcuts, so to speak, that could bypass a great deal of distraction and frustrations.

MEntity: Yes, we can say here that you are Mercurial/Venusian/Solar. Primary/Secondary/Tertiary; or Appearance/Nature/Glandular. ... There is a fourth influence of Uranus that is only at 2%, but it is there, and this is the influence that keeps your fantasies, dreams, and higher perceptions exercised. Even 0.5% influence can leave the Personality in strange, drifting states for periods that lose all track of time, so we would think that this would be obvious to you. If we are correct. NicSweeney: Yes...I know this well! MEntity: This is the influence that is either amorphously present, or is called upon in higher states, such as creativity, visioning, meditation, problem solving, etc.

    *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. VENUSIAN BODY Venusian Bodies have a strong sensual need to pet, caress, touch and be touched- being a type that is passive(introspective/being-centered) and positive(motorial) toward sharing actions/sensations intimately through being open, approachable and accessible to everyone. This type is then said to be on the Cardinal Action Axis and reflects the overleaves of King, Realist, Aggression and Dominance through how it looks/behaves/processes in life. VENUSIAN APPEARANCE- A warm, fleshy, curvy and sensually-attractive body that is most directly shaped by/seen for its sense of desire and BEAUTY. -SLOPPY: The contractive sloppy body is SLOVENLY. The frame becomes thinner with features & limbs that droop in slack, listless and careless ways- giving a slow, dull presence and saggy shape. The expansive sloppy body is OBESE. The frame becomes larger and heavier, with a tendency to a grossly pear-shaped figure that loses its form and develops loose, baggy and mushy fat/skin that is unpleasant to the touch. --- +VOLUPTUOUS: The contractive voluptuous body is SHAPELY. The shape and features are elegantly fit, toned and formed in beautiful proportion to and cohesion with the golden ratio. The expansive voluptuous body is LUSH. The frame becomes fuller/larger and the features more soft, ripe and tender due to a warmer, fleshier and hairier body. VENUSIAN NATURE- A body that feels struggle and strength over its capacity to EMBRACE the love, beauty and affection in/for self, through its interactions with other. -EVASIVE: The contractive evasive body is DEFLECTIVE. The psyche avoids letting others in because it does not feel whole/beautiful enough to share itself- so instead it dismisses all perceptions shared with it or diverts those back to others, to make others look better or worse than self. The expansive evasive body is LONELY. The psyche feels like others are avoiding or debilitating it & so seeks and craves a desperate connection and identity through other to avoid its aloneness. --- +SENSUAL: The contractive sensual body is INVITING. The psyche presents charismatic, desirable and pleasingly cordial behaviors that encourage self and others to become closer to each other. The expansive sensual body is INTIMATE. The psyche feels close to another person/thing & mutually exchanges its warmth, affection and physical/emotional/intellectual reality with them. VENUSIAN HEALTH- A body that manifests issues primarily in the Parathyroid Glands, meaning its health revolves around its sense of affection, calm and HARMONY within or around. The Parathyroid Glands release: Parathyroid Hormone(PTH)- regulates calcium levels by stimulating osteoclasts(which break down bone) to increase blood calcium, thus enhancing the functions of your muscular and nervous tissues. -WEAK: The contractive weak body feels PARALYZED. The Psyche faces sudden anxiety/shock/chaos and shuts down into numbness- leading the Parathyroids to reflect this by slowing calcium movement in the body, which causes the muscles/nerves to stop functioning normally, starve & thus contort or convulse painfully and uncontrollably. This is known as Hypoparathyroidism. The expansive weak body feels FRACTURED. The Psyche faces waves of anxiety/shock/chaos but feigns strength/composure as feelings eat away inside- leading the Parathyroids to reflect this by wearing away the bones, depleting the body of so much calcium it becomes brittle and the tissues fracture & collapse. This is known as Hyperparathyroidism. --- +ELEGANT: The contractive elegant body brings GRACE. The psyche invites the body to build up its calm, strength and movement one simple step at a time- which is reflected by the Parathyroids as they return to regulate calcium imbalances and facilitate muscular/nervous function. The expansive elegant body brings COHESION. The Psyche works on bringing common ground and resonance to any parts within or without so as to nurture a sense of shared pleasure, peace, unity, wholeness and harmony. ------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: Venusian Articles in the Study Library Venusian Body Type- Polarities Venusian Shame of APPEARANCES and Joy in AFFECTION Venusian+Martial Bodies- Tangibility Venusian+Mercurial Grief

Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. MERCURIAL BODY Mercurial Bodies have a highly intellectual and restless temperament- being a type that is active(interactive/doing-centered) and negative(receptive) to personal one-on-one exchanges of thoughts, ideas and expression. This type is then said to be on the Ordinal Expression Axis and reflects the overleaves of Artisan, Skeptic, Caution and Discrimination through how it looks/behaves/processes in life. MERCURIAL APPEARANCE- A short, trim, restless and compact body that is most directly shaped by/seen for the SPEED of its metabolism & brain chemistry (aka. its capacity to process and express life). -NERVOUS: The contractive nervous body is TENSE. The features, organs and tissues become contracted, pinched and stiff as the body buzzes with fearful but constrained anticipation in a locked position or shape. The expansive nervous body is FRENETIC. The body, limbs, organs and features change position, texture, color and form rapidly & without warning- often in reaction to imaginary, intangible situations- expressing a very clumsy and distracting lack of coordination as they move/shift through space-time. --- +AGILE: The contractive agile body is SHARP. The features and organs are compact, precise, trim and angular in shape and position- while the body memory is keen, decisive and incisive. The expansive agile body is LIMBER.

The expansive witty body is ADAPTABLE. The psyche heightens its awareness of details/discrepancies and how they compare or contrast with each other to move with the flow of ideas and events in life- problem-solving by piecing together various parts to make rational sense of perplexing concepts. MERCURIAL HEALTH- A body that manifests issues primarily in the Thyroid Gland, meaning its health revolves around its capacity for & quality of thought, ideation and EXPRESSION. The Thyroid Gland releases: Triiodothyronine(T3)- regulates body temperature, metabolism, muscle control, digestion, brain development, bone maintenance and heart rate along with T4. Thyroxine(T4)- works with T3, but less potent and longer-lasting. Calcitonin- regulates calcium levels by opposing PTH: suppressing osteoclasts(which break down bone) and increasing calcium excretion through urine. --- -SHORT-CIRCUITING: The contractive short-circuiting body feels SUPPRESSED. The psyche feels like its expression has been cut off, ignored or distorted, or does this itself, shutting down communication- which leads the Thyroid to slow hormone production, causing drops into lethargy, listlessness and weight gain. This is known as Hypothyroidism. The expansive short-circuiting body feels PANICKED. The psyche desperately tries to correct itself when feeling its ideas/expressions aren’t being properly heard, formed or understood- which leads the Thyroid to accelerate hormone production, causing surges of excitable anxiety, restlessness and weight loss. This is known as Hyperthyroidism. --- +GROUNDED: The contractive grounded body brings RATIONALITY. The psyche forms thoughts/ideas in clear and concise ways which may then be communicated- leading the Thyroid to reflect this by choosing certain metabolic pathways & chemical processes that will best facilitate an alert focus and expression.

Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. SOLAR BODY Solar Bodies are transparent, light and androgynous, so they find it hard to hide from life- being a type that is active(interactive/doing-centered) and positive(motorial) toward being an inspiring, expressive and energizing center of and for everything around. Much like the Sun that permeates its light across every planet, Solar mixes with any/every body type mix seamlessly, and allows for pure opposite types like Lunar & Saturn to blend and magnetize. Anyone with Solar will find your body types "blur" and are quite homogeneous across all contexts. This type is then said to be on the Assimilation Axis and reflects the overleaves of Scholar, Pragmatist, Observation and Flow through how it looks/behaves/processes in life. SOLAR APPEARANCE- A bright, delicate and androgynous body that is most directly shaped by/seen for its capacity to connect to and convey the LIGHT in life. -ETHEREAL: The contractive ethereal body is FRAGILE. The frame and features become thin, light and airy, seeming to fade away as they have little substance and presence. The expansive ethereal body is HYPER-CHARGED. The body and features become saturated with so much energy it even burns out and distances other bodies --- +RADIANT: The contractive radiant body is MAGNETIC. The frame and features are elegant, exquisite and perfectly sculpted with delicate finesse- attracting other bodies around into awe and wonder, while also keeping them at a distance so as to keenly & quietly observe them from afar. The expansive radiant body is ELECTRIC. The body and features are permeated with a bright life force which is then diffusely radiated about and transferred into other bodies around. SOLAR NATURE- A body that feels struggle and strength over its sense of TRANSPARENCY, and the process of finding a place/identity it can revolve around & discover itself through. -CLUELESS: The contractive clueless body is IMPRESSIONABLE. The psyche is a blank, blind state with no sense of identity or place- able to be impressed and conducted into various templates at will. The expansive clueless body is VOLATILE. The psyche loses all sense of how it is behaving or how to behave- consumed by completely random, intense & unexpected bursts of overwhelming temper that bewilder and distance both self and others. --- +INNOCENT: The contractive innocent body is TRUSTING. The psyche simply and naturally trusts the core good nature in self and others- behaving based on this knowing, and upholding that essence despite adversity. The expansive innocent body is WONDERFUL. The psyche emanates and merges with waves of delight, wonder and awe- totally immersed into life’s amazing and wild diversity of experiences. SOLAR HEALTH- A body that manifests issues primarily in the Thymus Gland, meaning its health revolves around its sense of IMMUNITY to & trust in life's array of threatening or unknown experiences. The Thymus Gland releases: Thymosin- stimulates youthfulness+innocence & transforms white blood cells into T Cells that migrate to Lymph Nodes to fight disease- particularly building up immunity in childhood. --- -DISINTEGRATION: The contractive disintegrating body feels FAINT. The psyche cannot understand, process, digest and assimilate issues happening in its life, shutting things out/down to cope- leading the Thymus to reflect this by slowing hormone production, and thus leaving the body subject to grave illnesses and diseases that quickly diminish its sense of life & consciousness. The expansive disintegrating body feels ABRASIVE. The psyche is bombarded by or bombards itself with scary/overwhelming thoughts, feelings and sensations, which damage, destroy and undermine its sense of trust, confidence and self-esteem in life- leading the Thymus to reflect this by chronically attacking & wearing away the body as well. --- +SPIRITED: The contractive spirited body brings REVIVAL. The psyche returns a sense of trust, presence and curious interest in the life- which the Thymus then reflects by revitalizing, rebooting and renewing parts of the body that had lost their spark of youth, strength and consciousness.

The Posterior Pituitary Gland releases: Oxytocin- stimulates uterine contractions and lactation in pregnancy for women, and sperm+testosterone production in men; also stimulates empathy, maternal behavior, generosity, arousal and orgasm, positive social interaction, pair bonding, and in-group favoritism. Antidiuretic Hormone(ADH, aka: Vasopressin)- regulates blood pressure, blood fluid and mineral content by affecting water retention in the kidneys; also stimulates aggression, pain relief, pleasure seeking, risk taking, social memory and pair bonding. --- -ASPHYXIATION: The contractive asphyxiated body feels COMPRESSED. The psyche over-emphasizes certain areas of the life at the expense of others, feeding them so much they become heavy, bulky and burdening- which the Posterior Pituitary then reflects by growing parts of the body to the point of suffocating and depressing other parts under their mass. This is known as Posterior Hypopituitarism. The expansive asphyxiated body feels INFLATING.

Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. MARTIAL BODY Martial Bodies constantly focus on finding restrictions, limitations & tangible outlets for energy; being a type that is active(interactive/doing-centered) and negative(receptive) toward dealing with any actions and sensations affecting people one-on-one. This type is then said to be on the Ordinal Action Axis and reflects the overleaves of Warrior, Cynic, Perseverance and Submission through how it looks/behaves/processes in life.

The psyche draws from its courage to take risks, burst forward & break boundaries so as to know on its own why it should or shouldn’t do things. MARTIAL HEALTH- A body that manifests issues primarily in the Adrenal Glands, meaning its health revolves around its capacity for cultivating STRESS MANAGEMENT through productive activity/movement. The Adrenal Glands release: Catecholamines (ie: Dopamine, Adrenaline and Epinephrine)- increase heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and blood sugar to initiate the fight or flight response. Mineralocorticoids (ie. Aldosterone)- manage blood pressure through mineral and water content. Glucocorticoids (ie. Cortisol)- regulate metabolism, blood sugar and bone formation, and inhibit inflammation, swelling and immune responses so the body can sustain action if wounded. Androgens (ie: Testosterone and Androsterone)- differentiate the male and female sexes. --- -BURNING: The contractive burning body feels BURNT-OUT. The psyche endures anxious and stressful effort for so long it depletes itself of activity and energy- which the Adrenals then reflect by slowing hormone production and exacerbating issues of chronic fatigue, depression, weight loss and burnout.

The psyche ignites intense amounts of undying stress, anxiety, effort, temper and anger to push forward- which the Adrenals then reflect by over-producing hormones and stressing the body into constant inflammation, distress & extreme fight or flight reactions. This is known as Hyperadrenalism or Cushing's Syndrome. --- +PERPETUAL: The contractive perpetual body brings SUSTAINABILITY. The Psyche realizes it must balance its energy reserves with its energy output by providing the necessary fuel to continue moving/pushing forward- which the Adrenals then reflect by managing chemical feedback loops to persist in a diligent, vigilant, tempered and long-suffering manner. The expansive perpetual body brings INVIGORATION. The psyche bumps up against, desires, finds and creates sources of pleasurable friction like sex, exposure, good food and exercise to ignite sparks/streams of chemical activity that encourage rises in movement, sensation, arousal and risk. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: Martial Articles in the Study Library Martial Body Type- Polarities Martial Shame of DEMANDS and Joy in SEX Martial+Venusian Bodies- Tangibility Martial+Jovial Grief Member: Hani- Healthy+Balanced Mercury-Saturn-Martial Mix

The psyche righteously and unscrupulously imposes its sanctimonious will upon both self and others to directly force all involved into its projections of perfection (into doing what's deemed best regardless of resistance, wear or tear). --- +JUST: The contractive just body is PROPER. The psyche is sincere, reliable & accountable for its perceptions and behaviors- upholding judicious and virtuous laws of conduct that it has learned, tested and proven are effective for its and others capabilities, strengths and limits. The expansive just body is GUIDING. The psyche helps self and others reach/secure their visions by encouraging, opening and inspiring them towards greater paths of growth, change and evolution that are just right. SATURNINE HEALTH- A body that manifests issues primarily in the Anterior Pituitary Gland, meaning its health revolves around its capacity for GROWTH & (RE)PRODUCTION. The Anterior Pituitary Gland releases: Growth Hormone(GH)- regulates body composition, body fluids and stimulates the growth and repair of all tissues (especially bone+muscle). Adrenocorticotropic-Releasing Hormone(ACTH)- stimulates the Adrenals to release Glucocorticoids(ie. Cortisol) in response to stress levels. Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone(TSH)- stimulates the Thyroid to release T3 and T4 to regulate your metabolism. Luteinizing Hormone(LH)- stimulates the Ovaries to produce Oestradiol and engage ovulation, and stimulates the Corpus Luteum to produce Progesterone for pregnancy+fertilization in women; stimulates the Testes to produce Testosterone in men. Follicle-Stimulating Hormone(FSH)- stimulates ovarian growth and regulates menstrual cycle in women; stimulates sperm production in men. Prolactin(PRL)- stimulates lactation, breast development, fertility, sex characteristics and paternal behavior, and regulates fluids, sexual satisfaction and immune response. --- -EXTREMISM: The contractive extremist body feels STUNTED. The psyche feels frustrated that its quantity or quality of physical/emotional/mental growth and production has been halted/hindered- which the Anterior Pituitary reflects by slowing hormone production as well, leading to issues of infertility, exhaustion, weight gain, dwindling bone/muscle mass and chronic depression. This is known as Anterior Hypopituitarism. The expansive extremist body feels ESCALATING. The psyche feels like it must increase its quality or quantity of physical/emotional/mental growth and production beyond what is actually feasible, forcing itself into too much obligation- which the Anterior Pituitary reflects by accelerating hormone production as well, leading to issues of over-exertion, seething anger, sexual compulsion, chronic tissue damage and gigantism/acromegaly. This is known as Anterior Hyperpituitarism. --- +DURABILITY: The contractive durable body brings STRENGTH. The psyche takes responsibility for how it uses its resources within and around to facilitate growth/production & work on/through meaningful projects- leading the Anterior Pituitary to switch towards more productive/reliable chemical processes as well to fuel the body through these challenges. The expansive durable body brings GENERATION. The psyche forges expressions, inspirations and physical productions of lasting quantity and quality, which then inspires other bodies around to carry those ideas/feelings/creations through time and space. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: Saturnine Articles in the Study Library Saturnine Body Type- Polarities Saturnine Shame of TALENTS and Joy in IMPLEMENTATION Saturnine+Lunar Bodies- Alliance Saturnine+Lunar Grief Member: Hani- Healthy+Balanced Mercury-Saturn-Martial Mix

    *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. LUNAR BODY Lunar Bodies have a strong instinctive resonance to familiar comforts and any things/experiences that remind you of your past; being a type that is passive(introspective/being-centered) and negative(receptive) toward dealing with your personal inspirations & emotions through one-on-one interactions. Because of this strong sense of instinct, the Lunar can show up as most pessimistic, immature and reactionary to events- or most elegant, curious and informed in your use of energy and wisdom. This type is then said to be on the Ordinal Inspiration Axis and reflects the overleaves of Server, Stoic, Reserve and Re-Evaluation through how it looks/behaves/processes in life. LUNAR APPEARANCE- A cool, pale, clammy and rounded body that is most directly shaped/seen as a REFLECTION of its internal or external environment. -PALLID: The contractive pallid body is WANING. The features, shape and skin do not show much light because they are small, thin and recessive- becoming weak and feeble. The expansive pallid body is WAXEN. The skin and fat become rounder and larger, but the features seem dull, flat, puffy and waxy- as the body is taking in too much matter/energy like baggage. --- +LUMINOUS: The contractive luminous body is SLIM. The frame and features are thin, small, smooth and cylindrical with a fresh, snow white tone, crescent shape & clear, doll-like skin. The expansive luminous body is PLUMP. The frame and features are larger, fleshier, rounder and fuller with a cool tone, baby-like shape & healthy pink glow. LUNAR NATURE- A body that feels struggle and strength over its RESISTANCE to power/control, which helps it cultivate its own sense of power/control. -CHILDISH: The contractive childish body is DEPENDENT. The psyche seeks things/people which it can familiarize with, revolve around and rely upon- subconsciously clinging to these attachments. The expansive childish body is REBELLIOUS. The psyche notices something disgusting in other that prompts a reactionary compulsion to distance from that and its effects on self. --- +UNATTACHED: The contractive unattached body is INDEPENDENT. The psyche returns sovereignty over itself to move in freer more self-controlled and self-managed ways- directing its own life. The expansive unattached body is PEACEFUL. The psyche is at peace & in awe with the various forces of life as it trusts its centeredness, inner child & inner knowing throughout- responding from these. LUNAR HEALTH- A body that manifests issues primarily in the Pancreas Gland, meaning its health revolves around the effects of its physical/emotional/mental DIET. The Pancreas Gland releases: Insulin- stimulates the Liver to store Glucose as Glycogen, and stimulates muscle+fat cells to absorb blood Glucose and lower blood sugar levels to increase energy. Glucagon- stimulates the Liver to release blood Glucose from Glycogen storages into the blood, and raise blood sugar levels to reach the body’s cells. Somatostatin- inhibits various hormones including Insulin+Glucagon; generally slows bodily functions like growth, metabolism and digestion, and reduces blood sugar concentration. Digestive Enzymes- In the Exocrine part of the Pancreas, these are secreted to aid the digestion of proteins(Proteases), carbs(Amylase) and fats(Lipase) --- -RESIGNATION: The contractive resigned body feels EXHAUSTED. The Psyche becomes fatigued by too many feelings so it stops functioning, avoids conflict & refuses to exert any effort at all- leading the Pancreas to reflect this by refusing to produce hormones as well, and thus reinforcing chronic exhaustion. The expansive resigned body feels OVERLOADED. The Psyche takes in too many feelings, trying to process and manage it all before resorting to neurotic/lunatic behaviors such as emotional eating- leading the Pancreas to become so bogged down with matter/energy it can’t function effectively. This then leads to either Hypoglycemia or Hyperglycemia. --- +SENSITIVITY: The contractive sensitive body brings NOURISHMENT. The Psyche impels a need to nurture and care for the body with necessary and natural fuels, while also being mindful of its energy/caloric intake- leading the Pancreas to reflect this by returning to properly manage the diet as well. The expansive sensitive body brings SENSIBILITY. The psyche returns to its center to find moments of lucidity that honor any reactionary processes happening within or without, while also responding to events and relationships as clearly, elegantly and intelligibly as practicable. ----------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: Lunar Articles in the Study Library Lunar Body Type- Polarities Lunar Shame of INTELLIGENCE and Joy in USEFULNESS Lunar+Saturnian Bodies- Alliance Lunar+Saturnian Grief Member: Janet- Lunar Appearance
  18. Michael Speaks - July 23, 2017 - Advanced Body Types MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We understand the topic to be a focus on further exploration of Body Types. We will respond to the request for details of the Polarities for each element or facet of a Body Type as it manifests in Appearance, Nature, and Health. We delivered a large data packet to Troy and will begin delivering to you now: We know that Lunar has been covered, so we will continue from Saturn: SATURN APPEARANCE: -gaunt +rugged NATURE: -perfectionist +just HEALTH: -extremism +durability MERCURIAL APPEARANCE: -nervous +agile NATURE: -slippery +witty HEALTH: -short-circuiting +grounded JOVIAL APPEARANCE: -overwhelming +grandeur NATURE: -indulgent +joyful HEALTH: -asphyxiation +vitality MARTIAL APPEARANCE: -compulsive +alive NATURE: -irrational +dedicated HEALTH: -burning +perpetual VENUSIAN APPEARANCE: -sloppy +voluptuous NATURE: -evasive +sensual HEALTH: -weak +elegant SOLAR APPEARANCE: -ethereal +radiant NATURE: -clueless +innocent HEALTH: -disintegration +spirited LUNAR (Note: Lunar aspects were received earlier via a private session.) APPEARANCE: -Pallid +Luminous NATURE: -Childish +Unattached HEALTH: -Resignation +Sensitivity Some of these terms may seem out of context when describing the Polarity of an element, but we must choose terms that are broader and more symbolic than anything detailed or specific. This is because each element is not merely polarized, but molecularly polarized. In other words, each pole has its polarities, as well. For example, we chose Extremism as the Negative Pole of Health for Saturn because this captures the effects of over- or under-stimulation of the anterior pituitary. In other cases our terms are symbolic in ways that represent how a Body Type LOOKS, not only in literal appearance, but in experiential engagement. For example, the Appearance of Mercury as -Nervous or +Agile captures the range of experiential engagement in and with that Body Type. How a Body Type LOOKS is often how it is remembered. We will open the floor now to questions: QUEUE IS NOW OPEN KURTIS Kurtis: Hi Ms. You've stated that Body Types each have a Primary Shame. That makes me wonder if there are other contexts involved with Body Types too. Like, is there a Primary Play for each? Primary Rest? etc.. Kurtis: Perhaps these categories might be Organized in 7s or 9s or 12s. Is that true? MEntity: In addition to a Primary Shame, each Body Type has a Primary Joy or Primary Delight. This Primary Joy tends to be dynamically tied to the Shame so that if the Joy is blocked or not pursued, the Shame takes over and eventually eclipses all efforts toward Primary Joy. The Body will tend to lock into the Shame as a way to earn or seek Joy, but Shame will always mute Joy. PRIMARY JOY OF BODY TYPES LUNAR - USEFULNESS JOVIAL - SPECIALIZATION MARTIAL - SEX SOLAR - WANDERLUST MERCURIAL - DEBATE SATURN - IMPLEMENTATION VENUS - AFFECTION NEXT, Uma Uma: My Primary Body Type is Lunar, Secondary Venusian, Tertiary Mercurial. How does that affect my perceptions/Overleaves? What affects what? Does Primary=appearance, Secondary=nature, Tertiary=Health in that order? Uma: How does body type affect perceptions? MEntity: Body Types are primarily managed through the Moving Center and Higher Moving Center. On a very basic level of existence as Sentience in a Body, it could be said that the Body Type manages CRAVING and DESIRES. Cravings and Desires are not direct effects upon perception, but they do give great range of inner dynamics that reveal your range of perception. Cravings tend to be programmed while Desires are consciously chosen and defined. So while these do not shape your perception, your responses or reactions, your fulfillment or rejection, your moderation or indulgence, your shaming or encouragement for Cravings and Desires, and how you balance these or pit them against each other, all feed into the Overleaves as fuel for your choices. Uma: So if usefulness is the Primary Joy of the Lunar body, my desire to be useful is like a self-fulfilling circuit of joy? MEntity: It could be said that Cravings and Desires are a passive buffet and how you navigate and digest this the active element in terms of how the Overleaves are used and how one evolves Perception. Primary TENDS to be related to Appearance, but not always. In your case, Lunar happens to be Primary/Appearance. In response to your comment: yes, once the circuit is made it can be sustained, in terms of both shame and joy. Uma: thank you MEntity: NEXT, VIP VIP: Hi Michael, I'd like to copy a short excerpt from a previous exchange and then ask more about it. VIP: Is there a preference for my Essence to choose the Lunar body type as Nature as a result? Since as I remember, that body type tends to have similar cycles of gravitational-like push and pull as part of its growth MEntity: There is resonance, but not preference. The Body Types are cycled through in ways that "force" many combinations and arcs, but if there is resonance to a Body Type when it is not a part of a sequence, it can be added if Solar is included. MEntity: Resonance comes because there can be some Body Type combinations or parts that are more inclined toward Manifesting Essence, and these are unique to each individual, while other combinations or parts can bring more challenge. This is not the same thing as preference and the choice for Body Types is not affected by the resonance unless there is a specific Life Plan where Essence expects that being Manifest is key to an experience. VIP: Is there more you can add about the types of sequences, combinations and arcs that result from cycling through body types, and how/why a given body type is chosen for a sequence? VIP: Also, can you give examples of the types of combinations and arcs that result from choosing various body types? VIP: (The context was that of which you said you see my Essence as being Moon-like in its reflections and cycles of gravitation, leading to the question regarding possible preference of Lunar body type.) MEntity: The cycles we describe are locked in a sequence from your very first birth and is based on the Primary Body Type. Secondary and Tertiary Body Types allow for the necessary variation across lives, but the Primary progresses sequentially across your lifetimes. There is no set pace for this, but it is based upon the evolution of Essence while IN that Body Type. For example, if your first birth was in a Lunar Body Type, then it would progress toward Venus. This is helped along by Venus being in the mix. Eventually the Lunar would be replaced by Venusian. As a very simple example, lifetime number one would be Lunar, then lifetime number two would be Venusian, then Mercury, Saturn, Martial, Jovial, with Solar mixed in or as a Primary at any point in this Sequence. So if you have a Lunar Body Type, it means you are evolving toward Venus. Depending upon where one is in that percentage of the Body Type describes how much one is "looking" at the next Body Type. Body Types are the "soul ages" of the Body, so to speak. This adds a dimension of challenge to a lifetime, so that an Old Soul in an "Infant" Body Type (Lunar) will have a dynamic dance between the immaturity and infantile needs of the body vs the profound wisdom and wants of the soul. An Old Soul in a Lunar Body is at once in awe of life and great contempt of it. Uma: that does more to explain me to me than years of analysis! ha! MEntity: This cycling through the Body Types is directly tied to one's evolution within a lifetime so that if one "gets a lot" out of a life, then the Body Type shifts more than one where the life was spent in disgust and rejection of the body. However, as the soul ages, this pace is more controlled and precise so that patterns can be created relative to interests of the soul and considerations of social status, mate agreements, body type attraction, etc. Every level of preparing a life gains in precision as the soul grows older, but details and precision can still never usurp the choices of Personality. As your soul gains experiences, it will tend to gain resonance with a Body Type, especially during a particular Soul Age cycle. For example, the Old Soul Age will tend to resonate with the Jovial, Saturn, and Venusian Body Types (particularly the Jovial), and find the Lunar, Mercury, and Mars Body Types more challenging. VIP: Does that apply to the Primary or highest-percentage body type only? MEntity: This is not true across all Essences, but it is valid. The reason it is not true across all Essences is because some Essences will find a meaningful pattern in a particular Body Type regardless of Soul Age. Primary, which tends to be the highest percentage. VIP: Thank you Michael! MEntity: FINAL QUESTION, Janet. Janet: So when your primary body type is not appearance, does that indicate something about the current state of the sequence you're progressing through? For instance, I have equal amounts of lunar (appearance) and venus (nature) and you indicated that venus/nature is my primary body type. (I have mercurial/health and solar across all if that has any impact on the response.) MEntity: Primary Body Type TENDS to be Appearance, but Appearance does not have to be Primary. What is more consistent is the higher percentage as Primary, regardless of its corresponding element. However, there will be anomalies that would have to explored on an individual basis. Janet: Ok. Thank you Michael! MEntity: We know you know there is more that can be said on this topic, and it will be said. For today, we must conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now. ***** End of Session Note from Janet: The day after this Michael Speaks session I repeated my question to Michael about whether it means something that your primary body type is not appearance, and I expected to get a response that was oriented specifically to me. However, Michael responded with some additional general information that I think should be placed within this session for future reference. MEntity: In most lifetimes the default/Primary progression is anchored in the element of Appearance because it is like the foundation upon which Nature and Health spring. However, there are some lifetimes where the Primary is assigned Nature or Health, because of the emphasis intended for that lifetime to build upon or around that as a foundation. When Nature is Primary, it tends to mean that the lifetime will likely go through a transformation process at some point that relies heavily upon the element of Nature. Of course, when Health is Primary, it tends to mean that the lifetime will likely go through a transformation process at some point that relies heavily upon the element of Health. The differentiation is fairly moot as each Body Type in the mix has all three elements of Appearance, Nature, and Health, so that even when one has Primary as Appearance, if Health begins to dominate the life, then Primary shifts in emphasis to Health. When the Body Type is set with Nature or Health as the starting default, however, it tends to mean that the entire life is navigated by the Instincts related to Nature or Health. -- end of addition Note from Janet: I hope the following chart may be useful. Some information came from Michael Speaks: 12 Body Types
  19. [Excerpt from MMW: The Health of Your Moving Center] [MEntity] If you think of the Polarities of the Center as the "skin" of the Center where one Pole or the other comes to the surface, and your state of relationship to the Body and your levels of Self-confidence as the blood, then the very deepest core of your Moving Center issues would be your PRIMARY SHAME. The bones. Where you are in your dance with Shame affect everything "above" that. Everyone has access to each Primary Shame, but the Primary Body Type tends to be the key to one's Primary Shame. LUNAR - Intelligence - the shame of not being smart enough JOVIAL - Indulgences - the shame of giving in to the pleasures of life and the body MARTIAL - Demand - the shame of requiring more than what is obvious or offered SOLAR - Needs - the shame of needing more than one will admit or ask for MERCURIAL - Desperations - the shame of expressing what is important for your healing SATURNIAN - Talents - the shame of not being important or unique enough VENUSIAN - Appearances - the shame of not looking or being as you are expected, or expect, to look Matching your Primary Body Type to your Primary Shame can shed light on some of the deepest wounding that you may carry that alters the quality of function for the Moving Center. If you do not find this at the deepest core of you, it means you have worked hard on this and have transformed it, or you are not looking deeply enough. If you have worked hard on this, you probably recognize it. These are universal obstacles built into the Body Types. They are what might best be understood as unique "pockets" in the Body Type that collect experiences quite specific to that Body Type and there comes a point in the life where that pocket gets heavy, and/or must be sorted through and emptied. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Advanced Body Types] [MEntity] In addition to a Primary Shame, each Body Type has a Primary Joy or Primary Delight. This Primary Joy tends to be dynamically tied to the Shame so that if the Joy is blocked or not pursued, the Shame takes over and eventually eclipses all efforts toward Primary Joy. The Body will tend to lock into the Shame as a way to earn or seek Joy, but Shame will always mute Joy. PRIMARY JOY OF BODY TYPES: LUNAR - USEFULNESS JOVIAL - SPECIALIZATION MARTIAL - SEX SOLAR - WANDERLUST MERCURIAL - DEBATE SATURN - IMPLEMENTATION VENUS - AFFECTION

    Saturnian Body Type -- Primary Shame

    [Excerpt from: Ask Michael: June 2017] CongN: Hi Ms. Could you elaborate on the Saturnian Shame of TALENTS like you did with Brian for the Jovial Shame last session? MEntity: The Shame of Talents is the preoccupation with one's not being important or unique enough, not being recognized as "special" in some way, or conversely being recognized as "too special," different, and odd due to specializations and uniqueness. It is a struggle around identification with what or who or how one is that is on clear display in some way. Saturnian Body Types can often become driven to matter more in some way and this forces a deep exploration of what sets one apart as authentically Unique vs superficially Special. Saturnian Body Types often come with a built in impulse to stand out and above from others, in both literal and figurative ways. That impulse can turn to Shame when it gets distorted into compulsion or when what one wishes to be recognized for is eclipsed by other ways that Saturn stands out. This is not exclusive to the Saturn Body Type, but it is where their Shame tends to go first.

    Jovial Body Type -- Primary Shame

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael - March 5, 2017] BrianW: Hi Michael! Could you please provide additional information on the primary shame for the Jovial body type and provide suggestions on how one might overcome the shame of "giving into the pleasures of life and the body"? MEntity: Pleasure is one of what we refer to as a Natural Right inherent in existence. Pleasure is one of the primary motivations for incarnation and for progress through the high planes. The Jupiter Body Type is designed in a way that gravitates toward pleasure. It knows and trust pleasure, so much so that it recognizes this as a necessity, not a luxury. Pleasure is subjective and can range from the more blissfully complex of sexual pleasures and intimacy to the simplicities of a good nap and good meal. Pleasure is tied to the Moving/Higher Moving Centers and Humans have created a hierarchy of Centers that places Intellect at the top and Emotion below this, with the Moving Centers at the bottom. Class systems are built from this model of hierarchy. This spills into race and economic prejudices and even into slavery where the Moving Center is promoted as only useful if it is productive or reproductive. Religions began to tie the Moving Center to shame because the person who is being exploited should only show productivity, not pleasure. And so "everything" pleasurable was tied to sin, to being wrong, to being dangerous, and everything productive and reproductive were tied to praise, righteousness, and worth because this served oppression, not the soul. The Jovial Body knows this is a lie and that pleasure is a right, but because this body type is so quickly and easily receptive to pleasures, this Body Type can tend to respond by indulging in pleasure as an escape, or indulge in pleasures as a deep, dark and hidden secret facet. The Jovial Body Type can sometimes reject pleasure altogether, or indulge to a point of losing the point of the pleasure, but there comes a moment when this Body Type realizes that pleasure is one's personal right, not something that is up for discussion or debate. The way that this Body Type can help itself to overcome any shame is to realize and own that if one's personal pleasure is not harming the self or another, then it is yours to do with as you please. It is simply no other individual's or group's business. Embrace the joy of the pleasure and share in that joy. When it is criticized or shamed, recognize the absurdity and let that be the "problem" of the critical or shaming. We iterate: if the pleasure harms no one, it is yours. If there is harm involved, then it is not pleasure, no matter how good it feels. When we say "harm" we mean harm. To simply offend another is not harm. So your greatest tools for releasing yourself from the shame of pleasure is to recognize its validity and necessity, and then to own it and share the benefits of this pleasure freely, if you choose. When you are happy, you are a more loving presence in the world. It is harmful to reject pleasure.

    Martial Body Type - Appearance

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael - January 4, 2015] [Brian] Hi Michael, 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.

    Jovial Body Type in Appearance

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael - December 7, 2014] Question: 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.

    Lunar Body Type - Health

    [Excerpt from My Body Types (Venusian/Mercurial/Lunar)] [Karine] What is my body type, and what are the ways to keep it healthy? MEntity: First, we think your Body Type is approximately 40% Lunar, 40% Venus, and 20% Mercury. Your Appearance Body Type is Venus, Your Health Body Type is Lunar, and Nature Body Type is Mercury. Of course, all of these will blur boundaries, so the concept here is one in which a context is "ruled" by a particular body type, but not exclusive of effects from the others. For instance, looking to Lunar for understanding your Health is a good start, but you may also find relevant insight from Venus or Mercury. In terms of your Health, monitoring the type and amount of fuel being processed for the body is a good idea, since Lunar is sensitive to how fuel is processed; thus the Pancreas is its primary portal of symptoms when it is unhealthy, showing up as potential "sugar issues," or diabetes at one end of the spectrum, and issues of chronic fatigue, exhaustion on the other end. This means that the monitoring of sugar intake, as well as caloric intake, relative to your body weight and lifestyle, are great methods for helping this Body Type stay alert, alive, and healthy.

    Venusian Health- Calcium & Calm

    [Excerpt from Diet and Body Types] [DianeHB] I would like some suggestions for keeping xxx's and my body types healthy. We both have Lunar/Venus/Mercury body types, in that order. MEntity: In terms of your Body Types, specifically, we can say that the fragment known as "xxx" would do well to consider his Lunar Body type a consideration, in terms of the Pancreas and the processing of Sugars, or his levels of energy in general, while you might do well to consider the Venusian influence related to the Parathyroid, and concern for your bones, Calcium absorption, and nervousness and anxiety. In those concerns, understanding how the body processes Sugars, and how the body absorbs Calcium, may be helpful for any long term concerns. Keep in mind that the body does not do as well absorbing calcium FROM calcium, any more than the body actually benefits from the protein from protein paradigm. Looking for sources that encourage the body to develop these on their own from the building materials of various foods is far more helpful than quick fixes or inaccurate body math.
