March 9, 2008 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. [Question] There are some chemicals that seem central to our culture at this time. Testosterone is one, Caffeine another. A new one I just learned about is Oxytocin. Could you comment on these substances? Maybe there are other ones just as important, or more so. That is my question. [Michael Entity] The three chemicals you have listed are natural to your world and culture, even as there may be some synthetic versions of each, or innovative media for each. For the most part, every culture within a time frame has as part of its emphasis an attention toward some stimulants. In terms of the list you’ve offered up, each has its different effect. We will comment on each listed above as they are used outside of a natural supply, when actively sought as a supplement or for effect. Testosterone is sought in your culture now as a means to bring about a balance (or imbalance) to the ratio between “male” and “female” energies. Your world now has more higher-male energy female bodies and more higher-female energy male bodies than it has seen in a long time. Testosterone is called upon to soothe that panic during this natural shift. Rather than implementing a deeper understanding of the female energies as they show up through a male body, it is sought to stimulate out of the body as much of the male energy as possible. This use is “fine,” but the implementation of Testosterone as a substitute for understanding can only last for so long. Eventually the panic fades and a more natural expression is allowed. Caffeine is called upon as a stimulant as it relates to an individual’s Frequency. Many are drawn to Caffeine as it keeps the individual Frequency at the higher end of the range one has within his capabilities. A Higher Frequency fits into Young Soul paradigm of “fast, fast, fast!” in terms of productivity, processing, and use of energy. As the Mature Soul consciousness takes more rooting, less Caffeine will be consumed as each individual finds his own pace and uses that to his advantage, rather than forcing oneself to the exhausting higher end of your Frequency. We remind you that we are responding to your question within the context of its use within the culture, but there are various individual reasons, as well. Oxytocin is a stimulant that triggers access to the Higher Centers, particularly the Higher Moving Center. When naturally occurring, it is activated in relation to a fragment’s conscious ability to process that access, but in its synthetic uses, the access is still made, but conscious processes are out of sync. The use of this chemical is relative to the panic over Soul Age Transition within your culture from Young To Mature. We do not see this as being used as a “central to your culture,” but it is a possibility that it gain more momentum if a shift in consciousness is not rooted more tangibly within the next 10 years. The use of this chemical is to help induce access to the transition process in a tangible way, because many assume that evidence must be externally-shown that one is present and accessible. Many fragments are present in your world who appear to be withdrawn and out of sync with an expressive, social culture, but these fragments are not lacking. They are merely interacting in a different way. Imprinting and social pressures can cause one to either push a withdrawn fragment into a chemically-induced accessibility, or push the self into that state. [Question] I don´t see the difference there… The self? [Michael Entity] In general, people may feel pressured to push a withdrawn fragment into this state, or one might feel that pressure on oneself and choose it for oneself. We would suggest that there are many who are incarnated at this time who are in a lifetime that could be akin to an “in-breath” over the scheme of things. As with all preoccupations with a stimulant, the evolving understanding of the motivation behind its use brings far more effect than the actual use of the chemical. In addition to the list above, we would add Nicotine, which is a stimulant that affects the Mode. This chemical has been in place over a long, Young Soul paradigm because of the nature of that soul age to leave intimacy out of the picture as one goes for what one wants from life. Smoke in the lungs can act as a substitute for intimacy as this soothes the Emotional Center, and Nicotine stimulates superficial socializing as a means to keep the Mode in effect. The Mode is the part of ones personality that describes how one RELATES. Though we focused more directly on some of the specifics of each of these chemicals, it could be said that ALL chemicals within a culture that tend to be used as a stimulate are relative to the Mode. In nearly all cases of use in stimulants, each has to do with a forced form of relating. [Question] How to validate one’s entity, if one has never met a person who has been channelled as a member of that entity? [Michael Entity] Channeled information is not required for one to validate contact with an entity member, but it can help one in the process. In the case you describe, we would suggest exploring the themes and qualities and “trademarks” of your Entity and then apply that filter to your life to see who might resonate to those factors. That would be a first step. A next step might be then to “invite” entity members into your life who are more obvious and accessible. This could be done using the dream state, consciously inviting your incarnated members into your life as you fall asleep. Contact may be made in this dream state as a means to make plans for contact in physical life. Channeling can then be used beyond this for details and rounding out validation. You have met several from your Entity within your lifetime, from a childhood “friend” who used to kick your shins or feet on a playground, to a cashier at a frequented market who “went out of her way” to be helpful, to a fellow passenger on a public transportation route of some length, to a man who was a “stranger” who appears to have photographed you at your request, etc. Though we will not list all of them here, we can offer those suggestions for references in your memory as a means to start your validation process. If none of these sound familiar, it may be because these instances are too vague or that we are accessing the records incorrectly altogether. We suggest you explore them, but you will know more precisely if they are accurate or not. In addition to these, there are many public figures from your Entity, as well as many Michael Students with whom you have contact on a regular basis. [Question] Currently I have an issue with a woman in my home owner’s association, Mrs. W. I’m the president of our HOA, and the minute she told us, via email, that she sent me a certified letter making demands, my reaction to it was to get very angry about it. I couldn’t contain my anger towards her when she arrived at our meeting and I yelled at her. This surprised me… that I got so angry because I rarely get angry with people. I have been looking at this issue of what caused me to get so angry with her and what am I missing about her to allow me to stop feeling my hackles raise when I see or even think about her. I know the anger I’m feeling is not really about her. Please can you shed some light on this… along with telling me how I might handle her with more positive results? [Michael Entity] On a self-karmic level, this relates to several issues: issues of Control as it extends from Stubbornness (you prefer discretion over obnoxious call-outs); issues of inadequacy as described by your Self-deprecation (it hurts to be told you fall short of expectations). In the case you describe, this triggered every defense you could muster to protect yourself from losing control and feeling inadequate. Your anger was a form of your trying to re-implement some control and to compensate for the sense of inadequacy. It is Good Work that you recognize that this incident is unrelated to the woman, herself, even as she provoked these reactions in you. This is consciousness, Essence. [Comment] Wow… that makes total sense to me. [Michael Entity] You claim that you “rarely get angry with people,” but this is untrue. Or more specifically, this is an inaccurate statement. It is simply that your anger more often is turned inward rather than outward. You are exploring the other side of anger in this incident as a means to bring some wholeness further into your life. That is the main self-karmic issue: your RIGHT to be angry. Your RIGHT to feel hurt. And ultimately, your RIGHT to express. Vocalizing your Anger frees your Intellectual Center or your Throat Chakra to “unclog” years of suppression. [Question] This is healthier for my body to express it outwardly? [Michael Entity] It came out more strongly as a result of past suppression. We would not say that it is healthier for your body to express it outwardly as much as we would say that it is healthier for ALL of your bodies to OWN your anger and to express it appropriately. This would include the internal expressions as much as the external. In other words, you have created a dichotomy within you that has left you with arguments against and for your anger over time. Whether this anger was kept inside, directed toward the self, or externalized. Your next steps are to consciously grasp that your anger is a means of uncovering areas of powerlessness within the life and then to bring consciousness to that area, re-empowering that area. In your case, the powerlessness could be said to be rooted in your Goal of Acceptance. As you explore this Goal, much of what is acceptable about yourself or others seems to be out of your hands in many ways. Over time you have found this to simply be untrue. So it is that you are now more likely to express your anger because you are not threatened by the loss of acceptance, of yourself, or from others. Now that you have seen the disproportionate effects of anger as it is expressed after being suppressed, you may find that you are more appropriate as you experience it in the future. Though this was a rather personal question, we do see our response as being applicable to many. If you wish to stretch yourself a bit more, it would be an interesting “short cut” toward balance if this incident were addressed with the woman in question, not offering apologies, but in offering appreciation and acknowledgment for the benefit gained from your exploring your part of the equation. You may not be able to control how people ask for what they want, but you can learn to see these calls for action to simply be variations of how one has learned to get things done, not as personal attacks. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Good night.
November 18, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor (some additional channeling added for clarity) [Michael_Entity] We are here. Hello to all of you. One moment. We will begin first by responding to any questions about the Energy Report. If there are no questions, we are working with an Open Floor format tonight. This means you may ask any questions of significance to you. We remind you this format is limited in terms of accessing personal information, but we may respond to the capacity that we are capable in each instance. It is suggested your questions keep in mind other students involved. The moderator may begin calling on the queue. [ksh] Could Michael tell me if big sugar and simple starch intakes affects my body? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course this affects your body. [ksh] In what way. Am I more sensitive than others are? [Michael_Entity] It is sometimes an examination method through food that allows the body to accommodate more of your energy fluctuations as they arise. In some instances the body is INFLUENCED by external stimuli that then affects the more subtle emotional and energetic qualities of the Personality; in other cases, the body SEEKS stimulants that allow the body expression of the internal energetic fluctuations. For instance, those with higher Frequencies tend to crave more Caffeine as a means to bypass the societal imprinting that suppresses their naturally “high” Frequency. Caffeine allows the imprinting that inhibits Frequency to be bypassed. It is the same with extremes in sugar cravings, starch addictions, and other food-related swings. In your case, you seek these foods as a way to process some emotional elements as they come up. Most of your cravings are linked to socializing issues and lack of fulfillment of the Community and Exchange need. [MaryBV] Please help me understand the nature of my relationship with my boss and his wife. Why do I feel compelled to stay in this relationship? [Michael_Entity] As we mentioned, we may be limited in our responses of the personal nature. That being understood, one moment. There are some elements not able to be covered in a format such as this, but we do see strong Agreements with the male. There are some obstacles unexpected and being accommodated, but the Agreement seems to be primarily with the male. The Agreements appear to be about exchange of healing or information that is capable of expanding choices. [MaryBV] Sorry, didn’t mean to zap you with a biggie. Thanks. [Michael_Entity]: You are compelled because this appears to be the third attempt over lifetimes at fulfilling this Agreement and it is going to be fulfilled if you can help it. The fragment with which you share this Agreement wants the experience of a revelation. It is you that have agreed to help bring this. [scholar7thlevel] I have a male female energy ratio of 82M/18F, will this impede my spiritual growth very much? [Michael_Entity] That is not possible. No. It simply means you will have the experience of seeking “spirituality” from a more linear approach, while surrounding yourself with experiences, people, events that continuously offer opportunities for balance. When a M/F ratio is more than 60 in either direction, it is going to be part of the task of Essence to find balance. In seeking that balance, you may choose Overleaves that heighten more creativity, seek relationships that are chaotic, find yourself in unstructured situations that require you to surrender, etc. How you respond to these events begins to allow the Essence more experiential data with which to draw from in further events. Eventually, regardless of M/F ratio, an Essence is easily accessing either angle. [Barry] Regarding the recent crash of Egyptian flight 909, was a crew member responsible for crashing the plane on purpose? If so, why? [Michael_Entity] The fragment in question, a Server, appears to have been in deep despair, but he did not do this as only a result of his choice for eliminating his single life. We will elaborate: When a fragment steps outside of the normally accepted roles and lifts society to a place of obvious great change, even if seen as rebellious, they may be called a Saint. When a fragment does the same thing but in ways that appear to be devastating, chaotic, and without obvious reason, they may be considered pointless and crazy. In this case, the Server “knew” his mission privately. Though fought against internally, the act was too compelling and “right” for him to reject it. Being in Submission, this was important, even if not understood by the Personality completely. The Server appears to have considered the state of his sanity, but the compulsion was greater than the need for intellectual understanding. All fragments aboard the plane had an exit point synchronized. The Server was consciously acting on an internal knowing. Two factors were involved in this knowing; one was his sense of trust in his ‘visions’ and the other was his observed “proof”. Upon investigation, it might be revealed that certain passengers, if having survived, would have been sources of great destruction. The Server in his own way confirmed this. This helped him justify and make sense of the haunting visions of what he “knew” he was going to do in the first place. We can also validate that certain fragments involved in this flight would have changed the course of many futures greatly in ways that the Server “knew” was not wanted on a mass level. The fragments that want to impose these choices on humanity will have other parallels to explore this option, but you will not see their plans unfold “here”. [Barry] How does his ending his life in this way (with the associated loss of lives) lift society to a place of great change? [Michael_Entity] We did not say that ending his life was a way to lift society, though in this case it may be said it was a way to “protect”. We were pointing out the differences in perceptions around certain rebellious acts in history and how they were interpreted. His act will most likely never make sense to the general public. This, then, is dismissed as pointless and crazy. [Barry] Was it significant that there was a large group of Egyptian military on board? [Michael_Entity] Yes. [DavidMP] Is the human race really a result of ancient extraterrestrial breeding, as is suggested by the scholar Zecharia Sitchin, and if so, what are some of the details regarding this? [Michael_Entity] Yes, it is true. Since we have covered this in several instances, we will have Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] forward the information to you. In brief: Your Sentience originally began its cycle in what is known as the Sirius System. In fact, a small portion of you had your first lifetimes off planet. Because your actions as Sentience developed became intriguing, it became popular to have you as “pets”. An Infant Soul primate is not particularly a good pet, especially in the hands of Young and Baby Souls. When violence became obviously a factor in reaction to be caged and held, it was determined you were a menace. As laws were being passed to insure the removal of your species through extermination, the Older Souls rallied in an animal rights movement to “save” you. It was clear to the Older Souls you were Sentient. With genetic sampling, and an “out-of-the-way” planet, Earth, you were allowed to continue uninterrupted in your evolution. This was done for the Cetaceans as well, so it was not unheard of. [DavidMP] Will these extraterrestrials most likely come back into our lives? [Michael_Entity] The primary Race involved in your rescue has always been involved with your species. They are highly telepathic and though capable of using a mental block in perceiving them physically, they have been spotted on occasion. They are known as your “Bigfoot”. [nemo999] I made an appointment for a past life regression, what should I look for? [Michael_Entity] Lifetimes usually resonate in groups, like chords being struck. We would suggest using your daily symptoms as a means to determine what to recall. By this we mean addressing any “nagging” behavior, any decorative or creative expressions that seems to be from other times, or an illness. In your case, we would suggest seeking lives that contribute to your vague anger and sense of separation from your environment. We remind you that we do not see “past life recall” as necessary or particularly meaningful. It is certainly your choice and many results can occur from the seeking. Most past lives will “show up” for you when appropriate without the need for imposed extraction. Most who seek the therapeutic approach to extracting past lives simply to feel a forum of permission that will allow more validation of what is recalled. This then is actually a valid approach. [nemo999] my thought is in regard to choosing paths to take. [Michael_Entity] Yes, in terms of helping you make decisions about ‘future” paths, it is still suggested that release of unprocessed anger be undertaken first. We only suggest this as we were asked, otherwise it is your choice. If you are seeking a context with which to explore, the anger is a good angle with which to approach. It is also helpful to simply “see what comes up”. [Luna2ne] Does Dick Hein has a message for us at this time? (our recently departed scholar friend?) [Michael_Entity] We do not convey messages from the dead. This fragment will contact those with whom the Personality feels a message might be meaningful. [kath821] Concerning this fellow Michael student, Dick Hein, what, if anything, can you share with us to explain the motivations and benefits or disadvantages of what happened with him? Is this self-karmic? [Michael_Entity] Yes, this was a personally meaningful self-karma. This fragment faced few fears in this life, even with all of his capacity for intellectualizing it. It was considered a great leap to “commit” to the study in a way that the Personality perceived as “the truth”. In this commitment, all that had been feared and passed over could be said to have been symbolized in this one personal crossing. What the fragment sought, he will find. His answers may be surprising, but the satisfaction and knowledge gained from this event was ‘worth it’. The self-karma here was about overcoming fear. [kath821] I'm sorry, was this self karmic in completion (his death) or self karmic in creation? [Michael_Entity] Self-Karma only exists within the life. This means certain issues are either carried over from another life or created DURING the life that seek resolution; either way, it is within the life that it is addressed. When Self-Karma is “carried over” from another life, it is rarely resolved as an extension of the original imbalance. It must then be recreated again and balanced from there. This makes the actual death scenario a particularly immune event from Self-Karma, even if the death is used to balance a self-karma. It is not possible yet within your species to be resurrected with any meaning enough to resolve an internal conflict over the method of death. Conflict that may be created because of a death is simply the Negative Pole or incompletion of the 6th or 7th Internal Monad and will be addressed in that context in the next life. Did this help your question? [kath821] Can you say if it was essence driven or personality drive, this exit? Yes it does thank you. [Michael_Entity] This was allowed by Essence, but certainly a conscious choice of the Personality. [MaryBV] I have a strong feeling that many of us knew each other in Atlantis. Are we together again to finish what we started there? [Michael_Entity] Some of you were there, yes, but we think your tasks may be newer than those approached in Atlantis. Most Atlantean-linked tasks have been played out. They may be similar, but we would have to look at each configuration individually. [TCB] Is there anything that you would like me to know at this time, that I may not currently aware of? [Michael_Entity] This is a question that might find its response meaningful to most of you: “that you are safe”. This is one of the most challenging of concepts for you to “know”. When we say “safe” we do not mean this superficially, though it can be applied on that level if needed. We simply remind you to take note of your choices, your personal decisions, remember that not all things are appropriate to “leave to the universe”. It is your choices that shape your universe and as long as you are making choices and decisions, you are safe in your life. When meeting new people, taking on new challenges, many of you “throw it up to the Universe” or say “we’ll just see what happens”. This is relinquishing of your right to create safely what it is you want, though that is a valid choice if chosen consciously. We bring this up only as we see this as one of the most challenging concepts, not to be sentimental. We will end here. Goodnight to all of you.
