  1. Does anyone have any good stories to tell about the BENEFITS of having a cat as a companion? Unfortunately, I wasn't raised in the "TV American" middle-class Caucasian family where pets are revered and they even have their own place settings at the dining room table. Sigh....that wasn't even me. I was raised in the 'hood by some weird Muslims who believed that animals are nasty and that people shouldn't have pets. After years of watching the Disney Channel and taking classes from Caucasian female lightworkers (expect a separate thread for that one ;-), I concluded that pet owners have more fun--or at least they can bulk up hauling 30 lb bags of food and 40 lb bags of kitty litter AND channel their Extra-terrestrial ancestors (if they have a cat). I had to hang out with the Nuwaupians for awhile before I concluded that channeling one's Extra-terrestrial ancestors would even be a good idea, but they didn't seem to have pets, either. Well, so.....I asked the Universe for a cat and said cat arrived about 4 months ago. He's a great person and all, but....well.....he's a CAT. He's not a replacement for human companionship, and "lap time" I can honestly take or leave. All of his special effects, shots, surgery, exams, flea treatments, and $300 vacuum cleaner have pretty much broken the bank, as I have yet to attain the middle-class income that sits behind all of those cheerful Disney Channel scenes. Meanwhile, I'm up to my eyeballs in scat mats, toy rats, scratching posts, water guns, and double-sided sticky tape. I can hardly move around my own house without getting caught in all the traps I set for the cat. I hate stalking people!!! I hate having to kiss somebody's ass when they violate my space because they are defenseless and dependent and they don't understand!!!! I hate people following me around for food!!! I hate having to clean that stupid pet water fountain!!!! UGH!! REALITY CHECK!!! I should have left his furry ass outside! (He's quite a looker, though....Feast your eyes on the cute cat pic attached. ? Granted, my immune system is stronger after the "Catty and Mommy parasite cleanse" and the super-scooper respiratory infection from breathing in cat shit at the litter box twice a day. (I am the Parasite Punisher! Die, bastards, DIE!!!!) However, I STILL insist on having cat-free countertops. How DARE I, right? What was I thinking? Most likely nothing... It occurs to me that Essence probably made a deal with this furry dude; maybe we're supposed to open up a healing practice and do "cat scans." It would be just like an Old Priest to plan some off-the-wall shit like that, but my personality is just about ready to cut her losses. I've got Angels helping me sort out my plethora of mental and physical health issues, so what REALLY is the deal with the cat? Darn that top need for Acceptance! I think I was just trying to fit in. I'm trying so hard to tap into the "pet lover within," but the honest truth is.... We are not amused..... Ah...that feels better.... Ranting is SO much more fun than hauling kitty litter! I guess I have my Mercurial body type to thank for that...? Any positive contributions to balance this disagreeable rant are welcome and encouraged. Thanks!
  2. Note: This session continues a topic first opened in Michael Speaks: Dreams and Symbols (Part 1 of 3). Part 1 was presented in March 1999, which Michael refers to in the session below. September 2, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Dreams and Symbols 2 of 3 Note from Otterly aka Troy Tolley: The chats no longer include the “Energy Weather Report”. They are channeled the night before and posted to the TrueView List. This allows more time for Q & A on the Energy Report and for the Topic. [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. One moment. We will open by taking questions from you in regard to our posted Energy Report. If there are any questions or comments, we will respond now. [La] You mentioned clear goals for the East and West Coasts, but what of the rest of the country… Do we not have such definitive geographic goals, or should we identify with one Coast or the other? [Michael_Entity] When we speak of the “east” or “west” it is the channel who adds in “Coast”. We mean to differentiate more or less as a division in three parts: The River known as the Mississippi and East would be “East”. Santa Fe as a marker, more or less running an imaginary line North and South, on over West would be “West”. All between, marked mainly by the width of the State known as Texas, is a mixing of energy. From these basic references you might be able to define your geographical location and which influences are strongest for you. DREAMS & SYMBOLS: Part 2 [Michael_Entity] We define the Topic in two terms because they are not limited to any partitions you may believe experienced. What is termed “dreams” may easily be experienced in certain forms while meditating or simply noting your environment (including body) while in waking state. “Symbols” are important on all planes up through and including the Causal. As you approach your waking state in as meaningful a manner of interpretation as you would a “dream”, much is gained. We began this topic in March 1999, this year, so we will not cover the basics again at this point, but we will continue. Tonight we will cover the Instinctive Levels/Symbolic. Whether in Waking State or in what is termed actual “dreaming” (the biological relinquishing of presence), Symbols play an important and integral part of your realities. At this point we will describe the three levels of Symbols. We correct the channeling here by referring to “levels” instead as “facets”. The three facets of Symbolism are familiar as the axis the Overleaf system is based on. There are Expressive, Inspirational, and Action, with Assimilation not acting as a facet, but rather the comprehension of the original Symbol. The three facets are consistent in “dreams” or waking state. Since “dreaming” can occur in either Waking State or Sleep State, we will use Sleep or Waking to differentiate from here. The EXPRESSIVE facet, related to the Intellectual Center, is anything in your environment that is truly an extension of you. This would include the state of your immediate environment, the clothes you choose, your style of hair, and your mannerisms. This facet is usually regarded as the “most important” personally. By this we mean that if it is interfered with in any way, there is usually a sense of imposition, fear, reaction, defense, etc. This is the facet reflecting what you see as “you”. The INSPIRATIONAL facet, related to the Emotional Center, is what might be termed the “messages” received around you; omens, the traditional usage of symbols, anything standing out as a distraction in your usual or expected environment or self, any discrepancies. This includes illnesses, extraordinary experiences, conversations of some intensity or surprise, lying, revelations, etc. The ACTION facet, related to the Moving Center, is the literal action taken in response to any stimulation, including your reactions, your excitement, anything connecting one point to another. This is also the facet that is usually considered your “feelings” since what are usually accepted as “feelings” are Moving Centered. The symbolism from this facet can include the motivation behind the actions. As in many of our online chats with you, we realize we are limited in your time. We will pause now for questions in regard to these facets before moving on. [bn] I had a dream where I was leaving my military life behind for good even though I had been out of the military for over a year. I have the feeling that I was transitioning a level of the 4th internal monad instead. Can Michael verify if I moved ahead a level in the completion of the 4th IM? [Michael_Entity] We will make some time following the basics for personal dream analysis. We will look into this as we progress though. Any questions about the facets. We will continue then. [M6] What is meant by “the biological relinquishing of presence”? [Michael_Entity] In response to M6: In order to “dream”, in either sleep or waking state, we would consider this the biological relinquishing of presence, in that no need for or want for focus externally is experienced. “You” are no longer present. Your body simply acts as a “bookmarker” for your reality as you at some point “return”. We speak to this more metaphorically than literally. We will continue. While in waking state, at any moment, you can choose to observe your environment (this includes your body) as a means for utilizing symbols. Treating waking state as you would a dream, determining the facet the symbol reflects, and “listening” to the messages, can be quite liberating. At this very moment your environment is no different than in sleep state, except in its apparent solidity. Looking around you, it is clear what is “you” (the EXPRESSIVE facet), what is “not you” (the INSPIRATIONAL facet) and what you are going to do in response (the ACTION facet). It is the same in sleeping state. There will always be areas that are “you”, “not you” and the actions as a metaphor. The comprehension (as a reminder) in either case, whether sleeping or waking, is the ASSIMILATIVE facet. In the case of Barry: The “Military Life” is the EXPRESSIVE facet, the “leaving” is ACTION, while the discrepancy in the time of leaving was the INSPIRATIONAL. The message here can be seen in the apparent “delay” of progress internally that needed to be addressed; “life was moving on” without some internal progress being registered. This can lead to overwhelm when internal and external do not “match”, and the dream state helped to align these levels of self. The symbolic leaving of the Military internally is an indication that you have released final influences INTERNALLY carried from the experience, even if before you had ceased to EXTERNALLY be affected. While we say, “released” we mean more accurately that you integrated what works and released what does not. [bn] During the dream I had intense feeling of release or finally being free…. [Michael_Entity] That would be expected, in this case. To BN: do you see the symbolism and the facets clearly? [bn] Yes. So it didn't have to do with moving on in the 4th IM but dropping the military personality finally… I didn't realize I was holding onto it that much…. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that. We were merely responding to the level of symbolism as it applied. The more personal application can be extracted from there. You determine your progress through the Internal Monads. We do not. We will comment on that progress at a later date, if asked, but your own assessment seems to be accurate. Questions? To help bring the practical applications of this information to bear, we will take any personal questions as well, in regard to dreams. Be brief in your descriptions. [LE] Could you just use the symbols to clue into your internal progress so as to help bring balance between both the waking and dream worlds? [Michael_Entity] In response to LE: While there are many times when sleeping dreams and symbols are left resting in subconsciousness, the waking state can always lend you clues. This method of utilizing your visual or experiential environment as a means for comprehension is empowering and valid. This can then bring what your refer to as “balance”. In further response to LE, we realize you have placed the word “just” in your question. Utilizing only one or the other, the sleeping or waking state as a means for comprehension will always be difficult. It is much more efficient to utilize both worlds, though yes, seeking the symbols in one world as the other seems less accessible can bring balance as well. [Fg] I'm wondering about people from my past, usually high school showing up in my dreams. Many I didn't know personally. [Michael_Entity] Yes FG. You have not asked a question. [Fg] They usually play some role in helping me do something I'm trying to accomplish within the dream (or work against me). I'm wondering why this type of symbol is used, especially in the case when I didn't know them [Michael_Entity] We will walk through this to help in application: The characters involved would be from the EXPRESSIVE facet in that they represent a time in your life and people who comprised that time in your life. That you did not “know” many whom are “helping” in the dream is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, the message. The shared focus, what you are “trying to accomplish”, would be the ACTION facet. We do see this as stemming from what we would refer to as the ASTRAL LEVEL of dreaming (which we have covered in the past, but tonight will not). The characters involved here in your dream are mere aspects of self, represented in part by “strangers” and some recognized individuals. FG, you have long suppressed aspects of yourself stemming from your teens and this dreaming experience helps to bring some aspects of self, in the past disregarded, into conjunction with common interests, internally. The “strangers” are aspects of present self, partially, and aspects of other Personalities from other lives, symbolically represented in the recognized High School environment. They are recognized, yet distant. You have never required intimacy as a factor for receiving collaboration. Therefore these aspects can work together and not necessarily need intimacy fully realized. Next. Aa. [Aa] I wanted to I wanted to ask what a ghost in a dream might symbolize? They've been showing up a lot in mine. Also, is the notion of the different levels of a house correlating with the conscious, subconscious etc. correct?? [Michael_Entity] In response to the first part: A “ghost” in most respects symbolizes the template created and left unfulfilled by a fragment. These “ghosts” can be of templates created by present self or other Personalities. In your case, Aa, you attract those which retained a template or imprint in their life, but feel it is unfulfilled. Those seeking resolution visit you regularly. In response to the latter part of the question: We ask first if you mean this as in having multiple floors in a dwelling? [Aa] yes [Michael_Entity] Yes, this would be symbolic. They would only correlate to “subconscious” or “conscious” if you chose to imbue them with that symbology. Most “levels” in a dwelling are indicative symbolically of the largest or most used space on that landing. The bedroom level could be said to be the “subconscious” then, but that must be individually determined. The levels and their meaning will need to be explored personally, if there is differentiation of levels at all. Next. La. [la] What's the meaning of recurring dreams in which I am trying to escape a huge, towering tidal wave, sometimes a female friend or child is with me? [Michael_Entity] To walk through for La: The characters with you are EXPRESSIVE facets, the tidal wave is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, and the escaping is the ACTION facet. This dream is simply indicative of your want for protection of aspects of self that you feel have been brought against their will into highly charged, emotional “tidal waves” in your life. You are seeing these aspects of you (the young girl) as needing direction while the one aspect is in a position to act as guide (your present self), fully knowing the enormity of emotion that is swelling and engulfing you. This is a dream reflecting an on-going procession of healing between your present self, and a couple of past selves. You have always reached across time to encourage or seek support for self from self. This leads us to a final important note needed for the Symbolic level. When in sleeping state, it is not always convenient to follow through with the symbols as they have been presented, once in waking state. It is the task then to take what you remember and follow it through in your imagination. In La’s case, it would be to turn and allow the tidal wave to wash over, standing strong, creating strength and trust against what was originally seen as only motivating “escape”. In most dreams remembered upon awakening, if there is a sense of symbolism and need for follow through, it is on the ACTION facet that you will direct the imagination. The sleeping dream state on the Symbolic Level gives you an indication as to where you stand presently in your life in most cases, while the utilization of that information upon awakening can actually change the impact of the experiences originally symbolized in the dream. This is all simply another tool, though one usually only taken up by late mature and older souls. Last question: Ka [Ka] I have a recurring image in my dreams, of a cat that talks and has some kind of superior wisdom or knowledge that I and the other around me do not have. What does this mean? [Michael_Entity] This also stems from the Astral, by the way. This is a “familiar” of yours and a vehicle of expression, personified in a cat, used by your Essence as a conduit for messages from your own entity. Though your Essence has the final effect on your receipt of information, the source stems from accessing your discarnate entity members. This symbol is drawn from your lives working with large felines as symbolically representing higher wisdom. There are quite a few of you as our students who place great emphasis on this species. This is partially due to their easy access to off-planet incarnated species as well; they are excellent conduits of various energies. We will continue the next chat exploring the Astral Levels. We suggest taking in your environment, from sleep and waking, through the understanding of those facets discussed here. We will summarize again: The EXPRESSION facet is what you see as “you”, the INSPIRATIONAL as what is “not you” (taken as messages) and the ACTION facet is how you respond to any stimuli. We will conclude here. Goodnight.

    Our Cat Enters Heaven

    @Bobby, this is dedicated to you, but also to all us crazy cat people ? ------------------ Bobby’s comment here made me recall this hilarious short story, by one of my favourite contemporary authors, Margaret Atwood published in the collection of her fictional essays “The Tent” from 2006, that I wholeheartedly recommend. So here it is; the rather short, short story. Enjoy! (If you prefer listening to Margret reading it herself at Toronto Public Library in 2010, you find it at the bottom.) ------------------ OUR CAT ENTERS HEAVEN Our cat was raptured up to heaven. He’d never liked heights, so he tried to sink his claws into whatever invisible snake, giant hand, or eagle was causing him to rise in this manner, but he had no luck. When he got to heaven, it was a large field. There were a lot of little pink things running around that he thought at first were mice. Then he saw God sitting in a tree. Angels were flying here and there with their fluttering white wings; they were making sounds like doves. Every once in a while God would reach out with its large furry paw and snatch one of them out of the air and crunch it up. The ground under the tree was littered with bitten-off angel wings. Our cat went politely over to the tree. - Meow, said our cat. - Meow, said God. Actually it was more like a roar. - I always thought you were a cat, said our cat, but I wasn’t sure. - In heaven all things are revealed, said God. This is the form in which I choose to appear to you. - I’m glad you aren’t a dog, said our cat. Do you think I could have my testicles back? - Of course, said God. They’re over behind that bush. Our cat was very pleased. - Thank you, he said to God. God was washing its elegant long whiskers. - De rien, said God. - Would it be possible for me to help you catch some of those angels? said our cat. - You never liked heights, said God, stretching itself out along the branch, in the sunlight. (I forgot to say there was sunlight.) - True, said our cat. I never did. There were a few disconcerting episodes he preferred to forget. Well, how about some of those mice? - They aren’t mice, said God. But catch as many as you like. Don’t kill them right away. Make them suffer. - You mean, play with them? said our cat. I used to get in trouble for that. - It’s a question of semantics, said God. You won’t get in trouble for that here. Our cat chose to ignore this remark, as he did not know what “semantics” was. He did not intend to make a fool of himself. - If they aren’t mice, what are they? he said. Already he’d pounced on one. He held it down under his paw. It was kicking, and uttering tiny shrieks. - They’re the souls of human beings who have been bad on Earth, said God, half-closing its yellowy-green eyes. Now if you don’t mind, it’s time for my nap. - What are they doing in heaven, then? said our cat. - Our heaven is their hell, said God. I like a balanced universe.

    Dreams and Symbols (Part 2 of 3)

    [This is a reproduction of the session Michael Speaks: Dreams and Symbols (Part 2 of 3).] DREAMS & SYMBOLS: Part 2 [Michael_Entity] We define the Topic in two terms because they are not limited to any partitions you may believe experienced.

So it didn't have to do with moving on in the 4th IM but dropping the military personality finally… I didn't realize I was holding onto it that much…. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that. We were merely responding to the level of symbolism as it applied. The more personal application can be extracted from there. You determine your progress through the Internal Monads. We do not. We will comment on that progress at a later date, if asked, but your own assessment seems to be accurate. Questions? To help bring the practical applications of this information to bear, we will take any personal questions as well, in regard to dreams. Be brief in your descriptions. [LE] Could you just use the symbols to clue into your internal progress so as to help bring balance between both the waking and dream worlds? [Michael_Entity] In response to LE: While there are many times when sleeping dreams and symbols are left resting in subconsciousness, the waking state can always lend you clues. This method of utilizing your visual or experiential environment as a means for comprehension is empowering and valid. This can then bring what your refer to as “balance”. In further response to LE, we realize you have placed the word “just” in your question. Utilizing only one or the other, the sleeping or waking state as a means for comprehension will always be difficult. It is much more efficient to utilize both worlds, though yes, seeking the symbols in one world as the other seems less accessible can bring balance as well. [Fg] I'm wondering about people from my past, usually high school showing up in my dreams. Many I didn't know personally. [Michael_Entity] Yes FG. You have not asked a question. [Fg] They usually play some role in helping me do something I'm trying to accomplish within the dream (or work against me). I'm wondering why this type of symbol is used, especially in the case when I didn't know them [Michael_Entity] We will walk through this to help in application: The characters involved would be from the EXPRESSIVE facet in that they represent a time in your life and people who comprised that time in your life. That you did not “know” many whom are “helping” in the dream is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, the message. The shared focus, what you are “trying to accomplish”, would be the ACTION facet. We do see this as stemming from what we would refer to as the ASTRAL LEVEL of dreaming (which we have covered in the past, but tonight will not). The characters involved here in your dream are mere aspects of self, represented in part by “strangers” and some recognized individuals. FG, you have long suppressed aspects of yourself stemming from your teens and this dreaming experience helps to bring some aspects of self, in the past disregarded, into conjunction with common interests, internally. The “strangers” are aspects of present self, partially, and aspects of other Personalities from other lives, symbolically represented in the recognized High School environment. They are recognized, yet distant. You have never required intimacy as a factor for receiving collaboration. Therefore these aspects can work together and not necessarily need intimacy fully realized. [Aa] I wanted to I wanted to ask what a ghost in a dream might symbolize? They've been showing up a lot in mine. Also, is the notion of the different levels of a house correlating with the conscious, subconscious etc. correct?? [Michael_Entity] In response to the first part: A “ghost” in most respects symbolizes the template created and left unfulfilled by a fragment. These “ghosts” can be of templates created by present self or other Personalities. In your case, Aa, you attract those which retained a template or imprint in their life, but feel it is unfulfilled. Those seeking resolution visit you regularly. In response to the latter part of the question: We ask first if you mean this as in having multiple floors in a dwelling? [Aa] yes [Michael_Entity] Yes, this would be symbolic. They would only correlate to “subconscious” or “conscious” if you chose to imbue them with that symbology. Most “levels” in a dwelling are indicative symbolically of the largest or most used space on that landing. The bedroom level could be said to be the “subconscious” then, but that must be individually determined. The levels and their meaning will need to be explored personally, if there is differentiation of levels at all. [la] What's the meaning of recurring dreams in which I am trying to escape a huge, towering tidal wave, sometimes a female friend or child is with me? [Michael_Entity] To walk through for La: The characters with you are EXPRESSIVE facets, the tidal wave is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, and the escaping is the ACTION facet. This dream is simply indicative of your want for protection of aspects of self that you feel have been brought against their will into highly charged, emotional “tidal waves” in your life. You are seeing these aspects of you (the young girl) as needing direction while the one aspect is in a position to act as guide (your present self), fully knowing the enormity of emotion that is swelling and engulfing you. This is a dream reflecting an on-going procession of healing between your present self, and a couple of past selves. You have always reached across time to encourage or seek support for self from self. This leads us to a final important note needed for the Symbolic level. When in sleeping state, it is not always convenient to follow through with the symbols as they have been presented, once in waking state. It is the task then to take what you remember and follow it through in your imagination. In La’s case, it would be to turn and allow the tidal wave to wash over, standing strong, creating strength and trust against what was originally seen as only motivating “escape”. In most dreams remembered upon awakening, if there is a sense of symbolism and need for follow through, it is on the ACTION facet that you will direct the imagination. The sleeping dream state on the Symbolic Level gives you an indication as to where you stand presently in your life in most cases, while the utilization of that information upon awakening can actually change the impact of the experiences originally symbolized in the dream. This is all simply another tool, though one usually only taken up by late mature and older souls. [Ka] I have a recurring image in my dreams, of a cat that talks and has some kind of superior wisdom or knowledge that I and the other around me do not have. What does this mean? [Michael_Entity] This also stems from the Astral, by the way. This is a “familiar” of yours and a vehicle of expression, personified in a cat, used by your Essence as a conduit for messages from your own entity. Though your Essence has the final effect on your receipt of information, the source stems from accessing your discarnate entity members. This symbol is drawn from your lives working with large felines as symbolically representing higher wisdom. There are quite a few of you as our students who place great emphasis on this species. This is partially due to their easy access to off-planet incarnated species as well; they are excellent conduits of various energies. We will continue the next chat exploring the Astral Levels. We suggest taking in your environment, from sleep and waking, through the understanding of those facets discussed here. We will summarize again: The EXPRESSION facet is what you see as “you”, the INSPIRATIONAL as what is “not you” (taken as messages) and the ACTION facet is how you respond to any stimuli.
  5. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: September 2000] [echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I'm thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.) [Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use a kind of telepathic medium to grab the attention of the caretaker. We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication.
  6. MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here. We will respond to your questions now. We will begin. QUESTION: Recently in a private session Michael commented on dogs and how to best care for them, their purpose, and so forth [NOTE: see end of transcript for that piece]. It was quite informative. Would you please respond similarly with regard to cats? Thank you! MEntity: Again, we can share with you what we perceive as being a general consideration of priorities for the well-being of this domesticated version of Felidae, but we make it clear as well that these generalities may not hold true for all cats. As with domesticated dogs, domesticated cats are in a process of developing the Emotional Center. Part of the draw of domestication and relationships with human sentience is for that help in development. Though the emphasis for the dog and the cat are the emotional development, their approaches are vastly different. For the cat, the primary priority for its well-being is BIOLOGICAL STIMULATION. As we said for the dog, the physical well-being is an obvious priority, but we speak in broader terms. For instance, a cat's health can remain strong and enduring, even without a healthy diet, if biological stimulation is a part of the life, but if a cat has a healthy diet, but no biological stimulation, his health will suffer. Biological Stimulation could be said to include HUNTING, PLAYING, and VISUAL TREATS. We would refer to this category as PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL-BEING, even as it is fulfilled through Biological Stimulation. We realize that many may associate "psychological" with the intellect, but we use it here to refer to the emotional development and well-being. The next priority, of course, is PHYSIOLOGICAL WELL-BEING. In the same way we suggested this for dogs, it can also be suggested that higher grade foods are of benefit to the health of the animal. Adding "whole bodies" to the diet can increase a cat's sense of presence and well-being on a physical level as well, meaning the occasional treat of small fish or a catch of their own (such as a mouse). The next priority for some cats may be INTELLECTUAL WELL-BEING. For some cats there is a slight reach toward the use of the intellectual center and for these cats, "talking" can often be an important part of their day. We do not speak here of the noises made to receive foods, or to demand petting, but the EXCHANGE of sounds from one cat to another, or from one cat to a human. A final consideration is the same for cats as it is for dogs and that is the METAPHYSICAL WELL-BEING. This is a description of the bond that develops between a cat and a person, with the cat "taking on" symptoms and behaviors that are often reflective of the caretaker. As with most domesticated animals with which a human can bond, the animal becomes a kind of extension of the human in many ways, but especially emotionally. This emotional extension is usually most obvious in behavior problems or in physical ailments and symptoms. Again, we clarify that these things are not imposed on the animal, but are welcomed by the animal as part of its emotional development. However, it can bring much relief to the human and to the cat if this level of consideration is observed. Understanding that your cat's illness or bad behavior might be insights into your own well-being can bring much more education to the cat's emotional development than any correction or medicine. It is important here to not assume that you can save the life of a domesticated animal with whom you have bonded, or fault yourself for an illness or ailment of these beloved creatures. None of this is imposed on the animal. It is simply a part of the dynamic. It is wanted. We will add an additional consideration here: that the domesticated cat could be said to represent the Emotional Part of the Moving Center, whereas dogs are the Moving Part of the Emotional Center. That is a generality, but a fair one. QUESTION: If I may, for instance, when my family pet died last year because of a heart problem did that have anything to do with us as a family? In other words is there somebody's function that this dog was pointing us to? Would this have to do with pets' metaphysical well being? MEntity: Yes. In most cases an animal bonds to one person on that level and that is the person reflected in the animal's illness, but it can sometimes be the case that a "family dog" does, in fact, reflect the whole of the family. QUESTION: My Kitty in Mexico will I ever get him back? MEntity: We will respond, but we cannot answer with a predictive response; we can say that most domesticated animals with which a human bonds finds its way back to the same human for at least 7 of its incarnations in that species, whether within one lifetime or across lifetimes. QUESTION: How do we let go of judging others? I try so hard not to have those "He is so..." "She is such a ..." thoughts, but they pop in uninvited, like little snarky gremlins. I know that I am doing it and breathe and release the thoughts, but it is like my mind pops back and again says, "Yes, but she IS a ..." MEntity: One cannot "let go" of judging others. It is a natural part of Being. This is why we describe one of the Chief Negative Features as being "fear of judgment." It is not judgment that is the issue or obstacle, but the fear of it. However, one can learn to manage judgment to be a tool and not just a form of entertainment or defense. Judgment is an important part of any sentient being's form of navigation through life. This is one way to help with the problem of judging unnecessarily: to ask if it is helping you to navigate, or if it's just entertaining you or defending you. We use the word "entertain" specifically here, because however uncomfortable or negative one would like to think of those "snarky gremlins," they are often purely for entertainment, much in the same way a cat will hone its hunting skills by swatting at anything moving. Judgment is a SKILL. It requires practice. Most of you practice by entertaining yourselves through judgments of others and of things, but those judgments are not a form of navigation any more than the swatting cat is actually hunting. Seeing those judgments for what they are can help you to use the skill more effectively when applied as a form of navigation. You are taught that it is wrong to judge and that it is unhealthy, bad, etc., but as with many natural, beneficial elements of life, the problem lies more in the misunderstanding and misuses than in the element, itself. Fighting judgment as if it is bad only complicates the problem of developing the skill to be of benefit to you and others. For most, you are taught that it is wrong to judge because it is not your right, and if you develop the skill of judgment, then your skills of discernment and validation are benefited, and most institutions and religions can do quite fine without your fine-tuned skills of discernment. In addition to this complication of misjudgment, we have yet to see a person be able to "stop judging" without actually using judgment to judge the process. What we would suggest for those who wish to develop the skill of judgment is to simply clarify where that judgment falls in terms of its usefulness: Navigation, Entertainment, or Defense. Making a mental check mark next to the judgment against the mismatched colors of a woman entering the coffee shop as being entertaining can be helpful. Making a mental check mark alongside the judgments against a person that are voiced with intent to hurt as being a form of defense can be helpful. Making a mental check mark next to the judgments that allow you to maneuver your way out of difficult situations as a form of navigation can be quite helpful. Using your judgments to help refine and define your judgments will help you to build it as a skill, but using judgment as a way to suppress your judgments will only enforce the wriggling "gremlins" that do not disappear simply because you judge yourself. QUESTION: I am at a cross road in my life path. I am a healer and I don't know where to go in my life at this moment. I am thinking of moving to New Mexico, but in my heart I want to create and set up a healing center. Also who the heck am I really? What did I come here to do in this life? MEntity: Though we cannot respond to you in any way that is direct and personal through this format, we can say to the last question, in general, that you "came here" to do what you want. There are no assignments. There is only choice. There are ideas that Essence has before the life begins, but these are only ideas, not assignments or anything one could interpret as a "purpose." You are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn. It really is that simple. In terms of "who am I, really?" we can only say that this question can never have a conclusive answer. All of the answers that we could give or that you could give would be indications and symptoms of who you are, but WHO you are is not so easily defined. You are a conglomeration; an ever-changing creation; a witness to the varying ways of being that you try on. In other words, you are who you feel and think you are at any given moment. If you are confused, be confused. It's not permanent. If you are lonely, be lonely. It's not permanent. If you are happy, be happy. It's not permanent. But these things are "who you are" at the moment. What most fragments do is spend more time on the past or future of themselves so that they miss the moment of who they are. That is all you can ever be: who you are in the moment. And it changes. To answer this more specifically, we would have to speak with you outside of this format, but we can say that your cross-roads is merely an opportunity for creating the path that you most wish to pursue. We would say that you are quite clear about what you wish to do, but simply fear the obstacles that might be ahead. Our telling you that you are "on the right path" will not remove those obstacles. The only thing that can help in clearing your path is your enthusiasm and trust in yourself as you take your next steps. We have more to say on this subject, if sought through another format. QUESTION: My question relates to rights of passage/sharing by way of personal road-map/or thesis with other fragments, while tapping into michael entity/another soul family/and, ultimately source/TAO collective group. On 10/25/07 i had a merging with my essence -- or my 3rd NDE (near death experience) in this life. Does this happen to all souls when they move from level to level (i.e.; in my case 6th old to 7th old ) -- do overleaves change at this point? I feel a need to write a thesis about the 6th level old. Is this a type of rite of passage all souls go through prior to embarking on the 7th old or next level of work? Reframing of 12 grand cycles to the 13 grand cycle that i am in -- so i do work authentically in alignment with prenatal agreements & incarnate amended agreements with self and with others? would it be normal here to discover the true root of your 1st incarnation and connect the dots, so-to-speak, to accomplish my life task? A book of truth on beginnings? pure-channeled from source/tao with help from michael / soul family / my soul family/ and source tao collective (to be specific). It appears groups operate with one another up there. MEntity: We see an unnecessary over-complication of events here, in general. It will always be the choice of the individual to complicate or simplify life, but we point this out as a means to help bring a response to your questions. Often, over-complication is used to replace the process of creating meaning. We bring this up for your consideration, but our response to the specific questions would be: When one shifts in Soul Age or Level within a lifetime, the shift can take up to 7 years to be fully in effect and Overleaves often change, however the change is usually in terms of axis, such as an Idealist moving to Skeptic, or a Goal of Acceptance moving to Discrimination. This is because Overleaves are biological and unless the body is altered to some significant degree, the Overleaves are already "built in," so to speak. If you wish to write a book, then it is up to you to fulfill that wish and the topic is yours for the choosing. To explore the origins, passages, and grander arcs of soul evolution is a topic many would find of interest. QUESTION: Oh, if i may, what Soul Age is Eckhart Tolle? MEntity: Eckhart Tolle is a 7th Level Mature Priest with Artisan Casting, a Spiritualist with a Goal of Flow in Observation Mode, Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part, with Chief Negative Features or Stubbornness and Arrogance. He is from Cadre 5, Entity 1 with a Server Essence Twin. QUESTION: Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is said to suffer from an inability to recognize faces. it is almost too 'appropriate.' Any comments? MEntity: The condition that the princess experiences is often chosen as a method to help implement the Goal of Flow or Re-Evaluation. For some fragments it is a helpful method to remain present, and distant from concepts of identification. This can be turned into a positive or negative direction in terms of identification as one either sees the overall uselessness of being too defined by an identity, or begins to see oneself as the only "real face" in the faceless masses. QUESTION: What does a Fragment experience differently when born prematurely (with no major health issues) in contrast to a "normal" birth -- and why is this sometimes chosen? MEntity: The moment of the first breath is important to some fragments with very specific interests in the astrological configurations at the time. The moment of birth, whether delayed or premature or "on time," has great importance in terms of body type and general karmic configurations and plans. All fragments learn to consider the astrological configurations as part of the dynamic that helps or hinders the implementation of life plans, though both Infant and Oldest souls do tend to just "wing it." They do so for very different reasons. QUESTION: I have a question about ensouled species. Do Cetaceans predate the human ensoulment? And why have Great Apes become ensouled when they're on the verge of extinction? MEntity: Yes, Cetacean ensoulment predates Human sentience, though only in terms that are understood as "earth years." Both your species and Cetaceans originated in other star systems. Both Human and Cetacean species were on the verge of extinction upon gaining sentience. Part of how a species develops sentience is often linked to the refining of the species to a small population. When a newly-ensouled species shares the planet with well-advanced species, they usually inhabit completely separate mediums, such as Cetaceans living in the ocean while humans evolve on land. In the case with Gorillas, it is going to be an important experiment as to whether the consciousness of humans can expand to a degree that recognizes the value of life beyond its own species, especially as Gorillas begin to develop more obvious tribes. The ensoulment of Gorillas is still an experiment, but it appears to us that it will continue. The Energy Ring (12 Cadres) that is exploring the possibility of ensoulment in Gorillas has the first entity of each Cadre sending specific fragments into the experiment; the most cardinal-cast from each entity. The number of Gorillas with what you would call a "soul" have remained around 24. Several of these have made headlines. QUESTION: So, this might be an experiment that will expand elsewhere in the universe? Is this "how" Energy Rings are started? MEntity: It is not unusual for a species to be sentient-ready and for an Energy Ring to explore it and then "pull out." Energy Rings are formed long before the choice of a species is explored. If an Energy Ring rejects the species, or the species rejects the Energy Ring, it is free to choose another, or to find a similar species on another planet. An Energy Ring chooses a species and then works as a hive for that species to develop the species' intellect to a point where it can house sentience. We doubt this experiment will be abandoned. The prospects look enticing to both human and gorilla sentience as the sharing of land and habitat comes under consideration. QUESTION: Well, I'm most concerned about a loss of viable numbers and loss of habitat; we're not bringing in more infant souls for humans and Gorillas are very precarious MEntity: Your concern is valid. The Energy Ring working with Gorillas is making it a priority to encourage an enlistment of human interaction and inclusion as part of the means for the experiment to work. QUESTION: I'm very concerned with all of the environmental issues that affect Gorillas -- including too many humans! but it's an interesting idea to consider on being at ground zero for a beginning sentience MEntity: Though this is not a prediction, we see most probabilities having far fewer humans over the next century and having much more effective methods for harnessing energy and sharing resources. It may be a bumpy transition into the rooting of the Mature Soul Age on your planet, but it is happening. The implementation of Mature Soul values will most likely resolve everything you recognize as a threat at this point. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye. "CALLED-IN" QUESTION: I have a question about "the joy of fantasy". This refers to what was termed "identification" and "imagination" in the Gurdjieff system. I often find myself "practising" a situation that is not yet here -- and might never come. Making pictures of things I should have said, will say, will do, will feel, etc. Often these are rather neutral pictures, that is, not very intensive. At other times they can be very dramatic, and also "romantic." Then I feel myself being "all over the place." not focused at all. It seems the present is devalued as "too boring, grey, uninteresting, pedestrian, etc." while the future (= a certain make believe fantasy about the future) is ALL that matters. I would appreciate feedback on this situation and how to move away from it, how to give the present more weight and reducing the hold of fantasies. MEntity: In this case it appears that the "identification" is in the thought that "I am... the future," or more precisely that, "I am... full of potential in the future, and safer anywhere else but now." We see this distraction with the future and past as a matter of safety and potential. Imprinting has left the distracted fragment with the notion that the only "place" that holds potential is the future and that "anywhere but now" is safer. For some fragments, the notion of enjoying the moment, of allowing the moment, is similar to "giving up," or admitting failure; giving permission to perceived mediocre content. Allowing oneself to get lost in the "joy of fantasy" or identification with the past or future is not inherently a problem when the present is given some validity and meaning. The moment (now) appears to lack any meaning or vitality, so the distraction is toward the future or past as sanctuary, but the irony is in the fact that by continuing distraction toward the future or past, the moment (now) suffers. Waiting for and looking for meaning will never come. Meaning is CREATED, not found. Meaning is defined, not assigned. Meaning is generated, not gifted. Consciousness is not static. It shimmers. It cannot remain in the moment, the future, or the past for any length of "time," before shifting to another angle. If one spends too much focus in the future or past, then awareness of the moment can tend to be created from tragedies, trials, turbulence, conflict, illness, etc.; anything to bring the focus back to a rooted moment. The body and the life dies in many ways without consciousness present in the moment. Being present would require a redefinition of NOW and that can only come through the realization that the situation is not an "either/or" situation. One can play in the future and explore the past as much as one wants, and still be present and alive in the moment. To redefine the moment, it can help for you to know that your active presence in the moment is a form of nurturing your future and healing your past. For one to be in the moment, one need only begin a practice in what we have called practicing "vividry." Randomly, as you feel the inclination, and more and more often as necessary, take a moment to simply watch the moment. Slow down your moment to see the colors, feel the textures, sense the smells, caress the thoughts, even amplifying the senses in that moment so that colors, smells, textures, feelings, thoughts are all heightened in vividry. Most of our students are amazed at how alive the moment is when this practice is applied. As one experiences this more often, then it can become a natural part of the day so that escape into the future or past is not necessary. The life, meaning, and presence you can bring to your moment, the more useful your past and future can tend to be, because the meaning of both the past and the future is generated from NOW. The meaning, potential, and safety of the future is meaningless until you "get there." The meaning, healing, and safety of the past is meaningless until you "bring it back to you." And you only exist now. DOG CHANNELING (included for your convenience): What is the best way to raise our animals, especially dogs, to live out FULL, HEALTHY lives. There is so much physical information out there, but seem all too conflicting, especially food sources and vaccinations. MICHAEL: While we can share with you what we believe to be a valid practice for raising your dogs to have "full and healthy lives," we cannot truly tell you a "best way," as this will vary from dog to dog, breed to breed, and species to species, of course. We can, however, highlight the 4 major areas of a dog's life that could use some consideration: 1. EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING Canis lupus familiaris is a subspecies of an entire species (canidae) who is in the process of developing the Emotional Centers. With consideration toward this, it is accurate to state that the priority of any dog is its EMOTIONAL well-being over any other concern. This is why it appears that many a tortured or pained dog still seems "happy" and eager to be affectionate. Ingredients for nurturing and sustaining the emotional well-being of a dog could be said to be AFFECTION, INTERACTION, and POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT (reward) on a fairly regular basis. If these three factors cannot be provided daily, or several times a day, the dog suffers. Understanding the needs of a dog on this level can also help one to tolerate the same needs within a human. 2. PHYSICAL WELL-BEING It is a given that the physical being must be tended and nurtured as a means to sustain the flow of the Emotional well-being, and though this is not the priority for a dog, it is obviously just as important. For the most part, the higher the grade of foods provided, the better, of course. Often this is described as "human grade." We would agree that this is important for long-term health. By-products appear to be a detriment to many animals who ingest them on a regular basis, as well as the ingestion of newspaper, cement mix, leather, and wood pulps as the bulk of "protein" found in lesser-quality foods. A mix of wet and dry foods appear to be an important part of the emotional-physical mix of well-being, as a constant supply of the same form of food can be boring to many dogs, even if they appear to have grown used to it out of necessity. Important supplements to foods appear to us to have proven valid in terms of increasing vitality and health, such as the addition of olive oil or flaxseed oil to the foods on a daily basis. Preventative measures through vaccines appear to be fairly harmless, even if not necessary, but the more specific the breed, the more extreme the help or harm can be from these vaccines. In general, we would say they are important, simply because of the peace of mind they may bring and the removal of concern for any legal impositions. 3. INTELLECTUAL WELL-BEING An additional factor for many dogs who may have gained some access to an Intellectual Center is the necessity for PROBLEM SOLVING. If your dog shows elements of curiosity and eagerness to please, he or she is probably showing signs of a need for solving problems, which can range from the freedom to explore new, but safe, environments on a regular basis to extracting treats from special toys. Exposing the dog to anything NEW on a regular basis can do wonders for the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of a dog. Some may argue that their dog is terrified of new people and things, but this is either because the dog is not accessing the Intellectual Center to any degree, resorting to the Instinctive Center in those instances, or this dog was inadvertently taught that this fear pleases his human companion. Some human companions can find secret delight in feeling "special" to his or her dog. 4. METAPHYSICAL WELL-BEING An important dynamic to consider when caring for your dog as a companion is the fact that as the bond grows, so does the dog's inclination to process the companion's emotional experiences. There is no way to avoid this, or to protect your dog from this, as it is important to them to experience this, but it can shed light on some illnesses, ailments, and behavior disorders. This dynamic is usually limited to being between the dog and one human, but sometimes a "family" dog can take on the processes of 2 or more humans. For a person who takes this dynamic into consideration, the dog can be seen as an accurate reflection of what is happening for the human on emotional levels that may not have been obvious without the friendship of the dog. For instance, a dog who develops a serious skin condition might be processing the human's unexplored emotional sensitivity and irritation against the world. A dog who is aggressive or protective might be playing out the emotional defenses of the human, etc. Keeping all of this in mind can not only help heal the dog by addressing what it means for the human, but it can help the human immensely, which ultimately pleases the dog in a way that humans might not comprehend. The death of a dog to a disease or condition does not mean the blame is on the human, because dogs will always die of something, however, it can still shed light on some critical areas for the human to explore within his or her own emotional world. Beyond these basics, the rest is dependent on the observation and feedback within the specific relationship. -Michael
  7. September 21, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We understand you will be in “open floor” format again tonight. We will move immediately into Questions then. [Clavis] Could Michael recommend any power or energy spot in Germany to visit during my trip there? It could include Austria, too. [Michael_Entity] We have no basis with which to “recommend,” as far as “energy spots” or “power spots” in what is known as Germany. We can either highlight a few of the areas, or comment on areas where you may already be planning to visit. Most will find their “spots” quite easily on their own. [Clavis] Michael mentioned “pressure points” of Earth before, using Egypt as one example. Is there any such spots in Germany or Austria? [Michael_Entity] Each of our channels resonate with and define parameters differently for what they call “points” or “spots.” The variations are not contradictions, but rather, “layers.” Each Layer is based on a layer of Truth. Most “power spots” are based on Personal Truths. The system as a whole for defining the “maps” of energy that comprise the Earth's energies requires collaboration, but it is a definite system. If you'd like to have an example of what might be a “personal power spot,” something that might resonate with you and trigger personal transformation, then on that basis we suggest the Harz Mountains. [Dewliet] Lately, certain music has made me ache with inexplicable longing. I get the feeling music might be a “language” for a fragment's communication with Essence. Could Michael comment on what draws individuals to certain types of music? [Michael_Entity] This particular Universe is built from and based on Music and Math. Everything can be reduced to either. Geometrically, the Universe can be reduced to Circles and Triangles. The resolution or common denominator for each set is the Spiral. Music then is multidimensional in its effect. All nonphysical matter, from the Astral and beyond, is translated into shapes and tones. When these multidimensional means of translation and communication are used while Physical, there is a “transcendence” in many cases to a level of “pure” nonphysical, paranormal connection. Music is in particular the language of the Astral Plane and the Messianic Planes. While extant on the Physical Plane, while Essence resides Astrally, Music then is a direct path to your Source. It is also a means to link directly to other Essences. What draws a fragment to a certain type of music is usually linked to their Centering and Role. Listening to it is the only means for its impact. Creating it is a different context altogether. We will also add that two other factors in determining the draw to certain types of music is the predominance of your Overleaves as they are arranged on the Axis (more Action, or more Expression, etc.). And we add that “timing” and events in a life will create a draw for what is most “needed” appropriately. [Dewliet] So, are you implying then, that the music most deeply touching me is that which brings me closest to Essence? [Michael_Entity] Yes. But note that it may also be a path for direct contact with other Essences. This is a large topic and we may continue with the delineation of each Axis, or move to the next question. [Dewliet] Thank you, Michael! Please take the next question. [Anne49] I would like to know why during the live channeling session in NYC some of us blanked out. I have very little recollection of what took place, and do not remember being anywhere else. [Michael_Entity] Many of you are inconvenienced by the body as a sensory unit as a whole. Those of you we sense “blanked out” were in a moment wherein you felt “permission” to do so. There was a common element of great amounts of input for each of those who did “blank out.” While in our “presence” and while in the moment of your Cadre/Entity unions, having to have full-body attention was simply pointless and moot to you. After a great deal of input over the week previously, combined with the sense of permission and safety, combined with the hypnotic elements of the room, voices, and energy, it is not surprising. “Where” you were was literally “nowhere.” At least as we see it. This was the “point.” This allowed assimilation, but with that amount of assimilation in a condensed amount of space/time, the “pressure” most likely had an impact physically. We believe you mentioned to Troy the pressure of your “headache.” This happens to many who attend a channeling in person, or even online “live.” A great deal of exchange is occurring not only “horizontally,” but “vertically.” [MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people's auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy's aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally? [Michael_Entity] The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person's Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen. A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here. In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy's Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed was the release of minor beliefs from Troy's Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these were released. As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side. [Leela] I've been wondering recently if there is particular karma that Jews as a group have carried over the millennia. Is there any truth to this perception? [Michael_Entity] Races/religious groups can have Karma that is dealt with collectively over millennia, yes. We see those who choose the context of lifetimes as a Jew as participating more in terms of religious imprinting as a means to explore common themes. There is no particular Karma for Jews that we can see being valid as a whole, but the draw to be born as part of this group in any form is highly appealing to Mature Souls seeking intense lessons around family and imprinting. Races and religions create CONTEXTS more than they do Karma. For instance, the race known as Black or African/American is now a powerful draw for newly Young Souls. [Momhawk] Hello Michael: What's up with this ‘peeper’ guy? Are my ‘impressions’ so far, accurate? Does it look like he will ‘return’ again HERE, or not at this time? Any further recommendations as to how to best handle this situation? Is it safe to remain here in my home, or would it just be better to leave for a while over the upcoming weekend. I'm REALLY tired from dealing with all of this at this point. [Michael_Entity] This is your Karma. You will be compelled to complete it. Whether you leave or not, there is a momentum that will allow a balance. Your “impressions” are accurate enough to console you, but they are of little use. We do not speak ominously, simply as we see the situation. Your “best” method of handling this situation is to trust your impulses. They are cues to your Karmic path. [KellyGirl] I would like to know about my next Mate agreement that will happen, particularly when, where, who, and the agreement itself. [Michael_Entity] You have two Mate Agreements: A Sage and a Server, both male. We cannot guarantee that these “will happen” as they are Agreements, and are not bound by anything. We do see they are still intact. The Server's agreement was for August. The delay is not an impact. The Sage is in Agreement to meet you in November. The Server is a Healer in your Support Circle and will most likely, if brought in, be a pivotal but temporary contact. His impact will inspire you, but attachment is more than likely not the intent. The Sage is more “serious” and probable as a long-term exploration. You enjoy Sages. This fragment is involved with children and Law. The ‘where’ of the agreement with the Sage is not determined, though we do see an inclination toward meeting in a holiday gathering. [echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I'm thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.) [Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use means that have become identified as a means to grab the attention of the caretaker. We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication. [Clavis] Could Michael tell me if I have chosen different careers in any parallel selves, and if I can tap into my talents in my other selves? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course you have chosen various careers in parallel universes. That is why they are not “this” parallel. It is possible to “tap” the talents of other Parallel personalities. This can be done through simple visualization and imagination. Using your imagination, “peek” in on what you could imagine as having been alternative routes “you” followed. These are almost always accurate and real. If you can imagine it, it has most likely found a place in some parallel. Once you have “locked on” to a parallel, “observe” yourself there. Look at what “you” are doing in your general, everyday life. If that is a parallel with talents you'd like to implement “here,” or if it has a prosperity level that you'd like to impress “here,” then simply notice what you are wearing, what you do as you come home, notice how you are wearing your hair, how you eat, anything that is a common, obvious behaviour that is “different” from “you here.” For example, if in that parallel you always come home and place your keys in a specific place, note that. Note anything that can be easily duplicated “here,” but is different enough to symbolically link you to that parallel. Then simply begin implementing that small change. The impact can become quite phenomenal and transformative. A bleedthrough will begin, impulses and behavior may begin to change, etc. It can be quite disconcerting, but if you are consciously choosing this experiment, it can be maneuvered through with little stress. [Clavis] Would Michael care to name a few of the different careers? [Michael_Entity] We are not in a forum that supports an assessment of your parallels tonight, JJ, but your own imagination can be used as effectively. [ksh] When is my next mate agreement? [Michael_Entity] You have Agreements with a Scholar in April of 2001. This is a long-term Mate Agreement with a movement in process in 5 year cycles. This fragment is male, travels to the US frequently and intends to live there eventually. It appears the agreement is to be fulfilled through meeting in a work environment or job-related pursuit. The meeting will most likely occur previous to the month of the Agreement's implementation. You can validate when you meet this Scholar when you are informed that his brother lives in the US and the fragment's mother is deceased. These are two, more obvious validating factors. Good Night.

    Ask Michael: March 2016

    Ask Michael - March 6, 2016 Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN JanaK: Here is my boyfriend James's question: Jana brought up a concept of psychological conditions manifesting as physical ones if persistent, and mentioned an example of her male colleague who had a very bitter relationship with women as a whole and eventually developed a testicular cancer. I queried why this doesn't appear to affect others in a consistent way, for example why would someone like Jimmy Saville, who abused and raped vulnerable people and the dead for decades, not develop a physical problem in a similar way. Furthermore, why would seemingly ordinary well-minded people get a cancer? Can you comment? MEntity: First, it is important to consider that illnesses are not punishments. They are not developed as a means of justice. They manifest from among variables that include genetics, environment, the emotional and intellectual bodies. For some individuals there is a factor of guilt that can generate symptoms and ailments that are the symbolic reflection of the stories behind that guilt. For others who may have the same experience, make the same choices, and cause more harm, the absence of guilt means there will be no effects on the body from guilt. The Physical Plane is always a gamble in terms of health. It will always be important to care for the body in ways that are appropriate, but this may not always protect one from the effects of genetics or environment. One way of understanding this is to consider caring for your home. It would make no sense for you to trash your home and set fires within it or neglect it JUST because there may one day be a hurricane. You cannot control the hurricane, but you can control how well you care for your home, even if it ends up in the path of a hurricane. In terms of illnesses reflecting processes, there is always some sort of insight that be gained, but it is not always so wildly philosophical. For example, if three people were to walk out into traffic and be hit by a car, one may have done so because he has a pattern of neglect that was reflected in his recklessness, while another person may have a death wish, and still the other person simply forgot to look up this one time. Our point being that there is broad symbolism associated with illnesses, but we caution against such exact correlations. As for cancer: even good people eat poorly. Even good people live in toxic environments. Even good people carry stress. It is never useful to associate illnesses with punishment or deserving. And it would be helpful to consider that some illnesses that manifest are not always physical. There are some very healthy active individuals who are are barely held together on emotional or intellectual levels. Though there are broad correlations and symbolism between illnesses and cumulative causation, it is far too nuanced to count on an equation of "IF X THEN Y." JanaK: thank you Maureen: There is a lot of chatter going on that Trump is lot like Hitler. A friend of my husband said Trump is more like Mussolini or Peron than Hitler as Trump is more of a populist as he doesn't have a military agenda like an outright Fascist would have. I think Trump is like Hitler more out of opportunity than nature. I can see that Hitler really believed what he was espousing while Trump is an opportunist who doesn't believe in anything but himself. Trump will go to any lengths to gain Trump "brand appeal" in any way he can. It always looked to me as if Hitler, in his heart, thought he was doing what was right for "Aryan" Germany, at the time. What really stands out to many is how alike the followers / supporters of both Trump and Hitler are. Would you comment on this time in history, in regards to Trump and Hitler and their Overleaves if relevant, and what is going on right now for their followers / supporters to be so similar even as we are in different times? MEntity: In technical terms, these fragments are very different in features, but not in function or potential outcome. It is not amiss to compare these fragments in terms of potential for parallel outcomes, even if each are designed differently. Comparing these individuals and the effects/potential effects is similar to comparing the results of driving a car into a crowd or driving a truck into a crowd. Yes, you can point out how different each vehicle is and how one may have harmed more than the other, but it is fair to say that it is rather moot to compare them for differences when the intent, force, and effects are so similar. The greatest difference at this point is the position of power. If the position of power shifts for the King, so would similarities grow ever more similar to that of the Priest's. A military agenda is not within reach at this time for the King, but when it is within reach, more similarities would emerge. In both cases there is a mass Monad at play here involving Serving A Corrupt Master. It is true that much of what the King promotes is merely for the attention and power. We have put his ideology at about 50% in terms of how much he, himself, believes what he says. He is marketing. However, this is not to say that this line is clear to him. If enough power and attention were to be produced by the marketing, then the effort to fulfill the ideology and build upon it would shift that percentage. In both cases "the heart" is not involved. It is essentially removed from the equation and process. Both are Moving Centered, Intellectual Part. The Emotional element only comes into play as a balance, which most often shows up as "thin skin," easily offended, double-standards, pouting, and tantrums. This is then used to fuel further the locked cycles of Intellect and Action without heart. Erin: Hi Michael, I have a few questions for you, being new. But I am going to go with the least heavy topic since we've covered some heavy topics today. In the transcripts, I have read you mention that felines are most attuned spiritually can you further elaborate on what it is about cats that gives them this natural gift? MEntity: We might not describe this species as "most attuned spiritually," but we do speak of this species as having the capacity for more reception than most species. By "reception" we mean that felines are prone to "trance." They expand and contract in consciousness on a regular basis. Some felines are more inclined toward a "resting point" that is more expanded and receptive while others may be hyper-alert and focused with little room for reception. Most expand and contract in consciousness throughout the day, and this leaves them open to receiving "signals" from various sources beyond themselves. Some tune into reception from only known companions and caretakers. Some are open to access from consciousness well beyond this planet. Some are open to the deceased and act as portals for loved ones who have exited a life. This receptivity is due to their biology. Because they are predators, there are long cycles of rest that are necessary for the surges that come from the hunt. We say "rest" because the feline is rarely fully asleep, but always aware to sensory input to some degree. These long cycles of half-sleep have evolved to be quite receptive to various frequencies of consciousness then. We clarify here that they are receptive. This means the feline is not actively seeking the use of this state as a "gift," but its use comes as a byproduct of its simply existing. In addition to the above, felines cycles of rest and receptivity are quite affected by weather patterns and emotional "weather" patterns of caretakers. We can elaborate further on this topic, but we think this addresses your question. Becca: Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to talk with us. I'm new to these teachings and have a lot of questions! I recently read a book about reincarnation and children who could remember their past lives and I'm curious about how a person might distinguish dreams, anxieties and identity disturbances in current life from memories of past incarnations. This seems to be an anomaly. Is this somehow linked to the age of their soul or to connections with ‘spirit guides’? MEntity: In children up to the age of 7, it is accurate to assume there are memories involved. In children between the ages of 7 to 14, it is safe to assume there may be memories involved that are embellished or distorted in ways that are sourced from the current life. In anyone over the age of 14, all "memories" would do well to be treated as sources from the current life. The longer one is incarnated, the more likely the "memories" are directly relevant to the current life. This is not to say that the memories are not valid memories of past lives, but they are remembered because of the current life, not because of the past life. If you treat your memories and associations with a past life in terms of how it is relevant to the current life, and not a distraction from the current life, then you gain the benefit and point of the memory. It is not necessary to sort out whether one dream is a memory and another is a symbolic digesting of the day's events. We can say that it is safe to say that if you suspect it is a memory, it is more than likely a memory, but if that memory is used as a distraction or becomes a distraction from the current life, then the healing may delayed or lost. For example: if you have dreams or memories of being a nurse during the Civil War of the United States, it can be treated as simply a snapshot from the family photo album of your soul, or you can look to your current life to see where there is relevant resonance. Are you overwhelmed by the obligations of caretaking and helping others? Are you feeling prompted to move in directions of nurturing and healing others? Are you in a position where you feel you are navigating sick and wounded people in your life? This was a random example and intended as that. The difference between the older individual and the younger children is the input of life experience that triggers past life resonance. Where there is very little life experience to trigger resonance across lives, it tends to mean there is a carry over from another life that is of some importance to continue tending in the current life. In older individuals with more life experience, the resonance is more about insight than it is about continuation. There is more we can say, but we think this is a helpful start. Becca: Definitely, very interesting, thank you :) MEntity: We will take a final question. Juni: A few months ago there was a conversation on one of the Energy reports about how a number of people were having dreams about people in their past whom they'd not seen for a while. It was suggested that this related to cord sorting. For instances where it was, what prompts Essence to engage in it and how is it beneficial, and can you comment on this within the larger context of this year with its theme of endings/beginnings, time allowing? MEntity: Cording evolved long before language, and its effectiveness and practicality transcend limitations of language, time, and space. Cording is still useful for remaining close to those who are far away, or those who have died or those with whom you build a life. The useful and energizing Cords are connected between the "fronts" of the bodies. But as populations have grown and more people share space and time, Cording is sometimes generated as attachments that are not mutual or beneficial and these become draining, exhausting, and even painful. Long after bonding is mutual, Cords can remain. Long after passing glances on a street, Cords can remain. Long after an argument, Cords can remain. Long after exposure to a crowd, Cords remain. These are the Cords that one would sort and release. The Cords that are intended or welcome are energizing, inspiring, and comforting. The Cords that are not intended, outdated, or remain without mutual consent are draining, exhausting, and distracting. The differences between these are in the mutual exchange and circuit of energy shared vs that of simply taking energy and "feeding" off you. For many who have been enduring or tolerating or being lenient with Cords attached that are not mutually beneficial, there has come a realization that it is time to let these go, to cut these loose, and to nurture healthy boundaries. There is a shift in necessity for great clarity about where one stands and how one is receiving/giving energy. We must conclude here for this evening. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
