  1. Michael Speaks Live January 26, 2014 Elaboration of Overleaves for 2014 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. [MEntity] We understand the subject to be that of an elaboration on the Overleaves that we described as representing 2014. February 2014 Energy Report [MEntity] What we will do is begin with the "Energy Report" for February before elaborating further. [MEntity] As January comes to a close, there appears to be a new burst of energy available for most of our students. This is a burst of enthusiasm, creativity, optimism, literal energy, and motivation. [MEntity] This is because the Goal has now come to focus as an emphasis, and the weight of the Chief Features of the previous year have lifted for most. [MEntity] The Goal of Growth is the Goal for this year, and this would bring with it an emphasis on challenging yourselves, and moving you in directions away from any stagnation that may have been in place in some way in the life. [MEntity] The Goal of Growth is all about the process of bringing/creating/generating MEANING from your experiences. This is why it can seem so challenging and stretches the individuals who have this as a Goal in the Personality. It impels one to look beyond the superficial nature of an experience, relationship, event, and the self and into the greater value and point of those things. [MEntity] We know that many associated Growth with physical activity and challenges, but that is only one form of Growth. Growth is NOT an Action Goal. It is an Inspiration Goal. It has never been about Action, but because experience is most often cultivated by participation in the world and with people, it tends to lean toward experiences that involve Action. However, it is about the value and meaning that one extracts from that. In a year when Growth is in place, our students will tend to feel as if these are years when there are leaps in evolution, the Positive Pole, if the work of extracting Meaning is nurtured, but it can also be a year when there is a great deal of Confusion, an overwhelming state of non-direction and non-meaning because there is too much being processed. [MEntity] So February would appear to be that tipping point, if you will, toward this dance between Evolution and Confusion, depending upon how much one has taken on for processing. [MEntity] The amount one has taken on for processing at the beginning of this year appears to be dependent upon on how much was resisted in the past 2 or 3 years. [MEntity] If one has been moving along for the past 2 or 3 years at a pace that is avoiding or evading a sense of evolution and progress, dismissing the need for processing experiences, then 2014 might start off with a sense of overwhelm and Confusion, a "tsunami" of backlogged processing to be addressed. [MEntity] If one has been moving along for the past 2 to 3 years at a pace that has allowed for value and meaning to be extracted from various experiences, relationships, etc. and has not avoided the processes necessary for the sense of evolving, then 2014 will probably launch into a strange and beautiful wave of highly-active Astral explorations and "jam-packed" dreaming. [MEntity] Even if those dreams are not remembered, there would tend to be a sense that the dream state was highly active. [MEntity] This emphasis in the Astral and dreaming is directly linked to the fact that because one has dealt fairly well with the Physical Plane and its processes, then the work of Growth is happening in the Emotional/Inspirational body. This is why many of you may then be feeling this lift, this relief, and revitalized sense of enthusiasm and playfulness as February comes. [MEntity] In addition to this, because the year is Centered in the Intellect, most will feel a comfort and enthusiasm for sharing what is happening in the Emotional body, in dreams, in the Astral, in their Evolution, and even in their experiences of Confusion. [MEntity] So as February unfolds, we suggest to our students to "hold on to your hat," and "enjoy the ride," as the month will likely feel as if it speeds up and has high potential for great laughs, exchanges of inspiration, sharing of experiences, and authentic joy, even for those in Confusion. [MEntity] Helpful Thoughts over February might be: [MEntity] YES. THIS IS MY LIFE. [MEntity] The emphasis in that phrasing can be moved around to bring about different effects. YES! This is my life. or Yes. THIS is my life. or Yes. This IS my life. or Yes. This is MY life. or Yes. This is my LIFE! [MEntity] The phrasing with the emphasis that is most inspiring and acting as a reminder that you are the one who owns this life, and that you are the one who manages it, and that you are the one who has the power of choice in it, and that you are the one with the capacity for problem solving, creativity, and for extracting joy, playfulness, and MEANING from it. ...is the phrasing that you can use to remind you that you are the creator and navigator of this life. [MEntity] We caution against using any phrasing with emphasis that feels as if it is mocking and evasive of your responsibilities for choice and processes. DATES OF INTEREST: [MEntity] February 12 - 15: NEXUS (convergence) - this appears to be a parallel shift that is an emphasis on growing closer to those with whom one has been tentative, or has fallen into tentativeness. [MEntity] Barriers and inhibitions would likely drop to help bring fragments closer, as they are in other parallels. [MEntity] February 25: Energy Shift - we think there may be something brought to public awareness regarding discovery or speculative discovery regarding off-planet material on or around this date. It is another contributing factor to the wave of enthusiasm and inspiration wave. Overview of 2014 [MEntity] Now, in terms of an overview of the year ahead: [MEntity] We think most will remember 2014 as a "Good Year," as there is such a wave of Inspiration unfolding from several directions and among even the Young and Mature in Soul Age. [MEntity] Cooperation and breakthroughs regarding misunderstandings in politics and religion may even be prominently surprising. This is not to say that there will not be challenges, but that there would tend to be some breakthroughs that begin a trend of uniting factions as opposed to the path that has been so divisive. [MEntity] The factions that insist on remaining more insular and isolated would likely find themselves falling to states of implosion by the end of the year, or have lashed out in such a way that it actually secures a greater determination for others to unite. [MEntity] With Priest, Growth, and Passion manifesting within the year in ways that appear, so far, to be leaning toward the Positive Poles, a sense that this is a pivotal year toward "something better" might begin to cautiously be embraced. [MEntity] The Realism of the year would tend to help curb the more delusional or distracting elements that might otherwise eclipse the sense of Inspiration, Compassion, Evolution, and Self-Actualization. That Realism would allow for one to step back enough to know that delusional distractions are not the equivalent of an obligation for addressing. One can allow room for those with delusional distractions, and still stand in compassion. [MEntity] Because so much would likely be felt as having been experienced, processed, and integrated over 2014, it is likely that the Impatience of the end of the year would be either lifted entirely, or replaced. [MEntity] The most significant events of 2014 would likely be in terms of those factions that refuse to move forward with progress and process of the planet lashing out and displaying what we see as the middle stages of their "dying gasps." [MEntity] Two significant weather-related events, primarily involving surprisingly destructive and sustained winds, would appear to be a focus for a large portion of the population. [MEntity] A "celebrity" murder looks to be coming around as a focal point, as well. [MEntity] Surprising transformations in immigration laws and in legalization of marijuana appear to make great strides in the year ahead, as well. [MEntity] For the United States. [MEntity] We can share these highlights with you because they appear to be linked to Nexus throughout the year ahead, and while these still have a great likelihood of changing, these are fairly secure enough in their link to the current momentum that we can, at least, mention them. [MEntity] We will open the floor now for questions regarding the topic: ****** QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ****** [ViP] I have the same Role, Goal, and Mode as the respective collective energies for this year. How would this affect (if at all) how I experience the year and those parts of it with Goal and Mode in focus? [MEntity] When a year is aligned with one's Overleaves to a great degree, or to one's Role, the year tends to go in one of two distinct directions: [MEntity] extreme challenge, or extreme progression. [MEntity] These are probably fair to say are the same things in the end, but the more challenging side would tend to come for those who have work to do regarding embracing more of their own power, choices, actions, etc. It is difficult to hide from who and how one is in a year that is emphasizing one's very nature overall. [MEntity] If those challenges are seen as beneficial, then there is the progression. [MEntity] Progression is a sense of relief and movement forward in the life in a way that seems almost pre-planned and guided from levels of the self that are not as tangible as your every day self. [MEntity] A progressive year is a matter of listening to oneself, to following impulses and pleasures and being honest. [MEntity] The sense of struggle, in terms of "challenge" is only felt if the focus from the self is on continuing to hide from who and how one is. [MEntity] The sense of progress, then, in terms of "progression," is felt when one builds on who and how one is. [brian] You mentioned that 2014 might start off like a tsunami. Will there be any more waves of destruction, or how might you recommend getting back on the board and surfing the next one? [MEntity] First, we would suggest for those who have experienced this break of resistance against avoidance and evasion to be one of CONSTRUCTION, not DESTRUCTION. It is a clearing away of debris that may be the equivalent of hoarding, or at least the debris as a by-product of hiding. [MEntity] Looking at the chaos of the breakthrough as constructive would help one to tap into the inspiration and creative problem solving that is necessary for infusing the experience with meaning that is useful and helpful, rather than as degrading and undermining. [MEntity] THAT is your "surfboard," then: the optimism of possibility even from among the debris, and even in the midst of cleaning up that debris. [MEntity] Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. [MEntity] Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. [MEntity] It is quite difficult to build from within Chaos, and to build patterns, if one resigns from the responsibility of Growth, or put another way, resigns from the responsibility of creating and bringing value and meaning to an experience. [MEntity] We cannot say if there will be other breakthroughs for those who are starting the year with them. We doubt there will be. We think most prefer to work with the one that is enough. [Oscar] hey Michael =) Could you share any possible 2014 highlights for the Netherlands? [MEntity] The Netherlands is often quite stable in its participation in the world, in terms of how collective energy manifests. That population is slow to bring great changes or challenges, with most of that being done "privately" and from within smaller groupings. We think most of the 2014 would appear to be fairly uneventful in terms of challenges, but we think there are several high-profile celebrations in store. [MEntity] There are a couple of Dutch Directors whose names may gain some more international attention in 2014, and a controversial artist who looks to bring up some debate within the local population. There appears to be a development project that is also under scrutiny and would lean toward either being dismantled or being altered to appease the public. [MEntity] We also see a breakthrough in scientific experimentation that comes from that area, and would fall into the category of "exciting." We cannot tell what it is, but it is of international consideration. [MEntity] The infrastructure regarding flooding is at a breaking point as 2014 passes, and this may come to be more relevant to the population as 2015 nears. [MEntity] We think these are bordering on predictions, so we will leave you with these higher probable events to note, though even those are not immune to alterations. 2 [GeraldineB] Even though I think this was answered, I'd like to specifically ask: "What are the probabilities of having the Sochi Olympics either disrupted or halted due to violence? [MEntity] We think the likelihood of disruption is high, at around 78% probability, with the likelihood of a halt being fairly low at 14%. [MEntity] There are, clearly, fragments who we can see are eager for this platform of expression for zealousness and confusion. [MEntity] They appear to be quite intent. [MEntity] If there is not the disruption due to violence, we would think there would be the disruption due to the intervention. [MEntity] We will conclude here for today. [MEntity] Good evening to all of you.
  2. Michael Speaks: Healing and Healers May 8, 2011 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here now. We can begin on the subject of Healing & Healers. We will, first, define "Healing" and "Healers." We will define Healing as "a return to, extraction of, or an imposition of Order from Chaos" and Healer as "that which, or those whom, facilitate the return to, extraction of, or imposition of Order from Chaos." Wounding, however it manifests, is Chaos, or at least seeming Chaos. There are really only 7 ways in which a Body can die, or be wounded. These 7 ways can overlap, and some may be able to refine these to a greater degree than we have through this channel, but those 7 Basic Ways of Wounding/Dying would be: Illness, Poisoning, Impact, Impaling, Suffocation, Starvation/Dehydration, and Natural/Shutdown. Each of these can bring wounding or death, and can be brought to any Body, including the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and "Spiritual" Bodies. Some of the terms would not be so literal in terms of the less-tangible Bodies, but are relevant terms. Death and Wounding are parts of the experience of the Higher Moving Center, which is the spectrum between Chaos and Beauty. Beauty is simply the recognition of patterns versus the lack of recognition of patterns that is Chaos. We use the term "recognition" because often the difference between Chaos and Beauty is a matter of recognition, or perception, and is a relative state. There are those who "suffer" wounding in ways that "should" bring about a great deal of Chaos, but those individuals return to, extract from, or impose a new order from the chaos in a way that is HEALING. There are those who have "no reason" to suffer and have lost all recognition of order, or beauty, in the life, and these individuals can truly be wounded. And so it is that the differences between Wounding and Healing are as "simple" as the differences between Chaos and Beauty. And so it is that the difference between Wounding and Death are the differences between Chaos and Beauty, as well. Wounding is Chaos. Death is Order/Beauty. Every Personality and Lifetime will explore the spectrum between Order and Chaos, but will always end in Order as a means for Review in the afterlife, and Death is that process of returning everything back to Order, or Beauty. Order can also be returned within the life through HEALING, and since not everyone wants to die as a means to regain Order, there is a necessity for HEALERS. This necessity is vital enough that it is one of the 12 Primary Support Positions within any Circle of Support. This means that every single fragment has at least one Healer accessible at all times in every incarnation and beyond. This may seem a rather sweeping generalization as there are many who suffer without apparent access to healing, but this apparent lack of access is a result of complications that are often unnecessary and are products of choice. A society can become rather powerful in imprinting various individuals to only accept the standardized methods and providers of Healing, which may or may not have helped. The Healing that a fragment may require is not always as obvious as his or her wounding. But the Healer and Healing that a fragment most-requires is ALWAYS accessible in some way. The first key in accessing that is through the realization of the fact that no Healer or Healing can actually HEAL; they can only facillitate Healing and Healing Methods. The only one who can ever truly heal you, is you. The individual can always override a Healer and Healing. However, the necessity for Healers is because often the first step to True Healing is in the ASKING FOR HELP. Wounding, or the plunge into Chaos within a lifetime, is a vital part of the experience of living because it is one of the few states or experiences that can be explored that provokes the Universal Truth of Oneness, or in simpler terms, the fact that you are not alone. Ever. Even if the Wounding leads to Death, or if someone's asking for help is still met with Death, the profound validity of that Oneness and the necessity for reaching out, is often registered in ways that are never lost by Essence. The 7 Ways to Die, or 7 Methods of Wounding, correspond to the Axes in ways that can often shed light for Healing and for Healers. Illness and Poisoning are Inspirational-based Woundings/Deaths. Impaling/Impact are Action-based Wounding/Deaths. Suffocation/Starvation are Expression-based Woundings/Deaths; and Shutting Down/Natural methods are Assimilative. Some of these are obvious, and some may not be so clear, and while we offer up these correlations, we will not say that they are rules or static associations. For example, we can say that MOST Illnesses or intaking of Poisons are MOSTLY related to issues of Self-Esteem, which are extensions of the Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. This kind of statement can be explored in a multitude of ways. The immune system is directly connected to Self-Esteem, and so it goes that any fluctuation in Self-Esteem is a fluctuation in Immunity. Self-deprecation is almost always at the core of Illness. The toxins that one takes in without question or concern through his or her eating of poor diet, might be an example of Arrogance at the core of slow Poisoning of the body. And so on... There are only 4 ways through which any of these 7 Methods of Wounding/Death can be implemented: Suicide, Homicide, Accident, and Natural, each corresponding to an Axis; Inspirational, Action, Expression, and Assimilative, respectively. Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers. And there are only ever 3 methods of Healing: through Truth, Love, or Energy. Facilitating Order within the Chaos of the Truth, Love, or Energy of an individual. This means that Healers range far beyond those who actively practice Healing, or those who specifically work with the various Bodies. In fact, every single one of you are Healers in at least one other Fragment's Circle of Support in every life. If this were not so, then Healers and Healing would not be so accessible to every fragment. One does not have to identify with being a "healer" to be a Healer. If you help to bring Order to someone's Chaos, you are a Healer. If you help someone to experience, comprehend, see, feel, or hear the Beauty that is inherent in any part of his or her life, you are a Healer. Anyone who can help others to bring Order to the Truth, Love, or Energy in someone's life, is a Healer. Whether this is done actively and consciously, or passively and unconsciously, does not matter. And so it is that each of you will always be in a position to HEAL YOUR OWN LIFE, which by definition simply means to bring Beauty to the Chaos of it, whether this be in Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, or Spiritual form. Bringing Beauty or Order to any part of your life helps to bring that Healing into every Body you are. Often, for instance, the Chaos that is in your Physical Body can only be masked by the treatments offered for the symptoms that this Body exhibits, but the True Healing would come from the Beauty/Order that is brought to your Emotional Body/Life. Much of what passes for Healing is only Treatment. Treatment is necessary, and is not a "bad thing," but it is not Healing. Understanding the various correlations above, and the 3 methods of Healing as they correlate to Wounding, can also shed light on the requirements for True Healing. For instance, those who are Wounded by Illness or Posioning usually require True Love for True Healing. Those who are wounded by Impaling or Impact often require True Order for True Healing; those who are wounded by Suffocation/Starvation often require The Truth for for True Healing. Keep in mind that there is a limitation on language here that can make some of these correlations seem confusing, so we encourage creative understanding here so that the terms are not always literal. For instance, it might sound strange that Impaling or Impact requires True Order/Beauty, but if you think of these Wounding correlations as extensions of Martyrdom and Impatience, both rooted in fears of losing Control, you might see why any healing would require a shift in understanding the nature of Beauty and Order. A fragment who is thrown through a windsheild because of his Impatience might be an example. A fragment who is rendered lifeless because of the "impaling" of her heart by the rejection of a loved one might be another example. Being Wounded and Being Healed are MESSY. There is no hard, clean, perfect correlation, and there is often a great deal of overlapping of correlations, so we offer these insights only as guidelines for those who explore Healing, or need Healing. ALL Wounding is a progression that begins INTELLECTUALLY, then EMOTIONALLY, and then PHYSICALLY. This means that if Wounding has come to the level of Physicality, it is almost assured that there is Wounding "up through" the Emotions and Intellect. When we say "All wounding," we mean ALL. Even "Accidents." This does not mean that Wounding is a fault of the Wounded, but it is often a result of a path of choices, internally and externally, that led to the state that allowed for, or created, the Wounding. Even in cases of Homicide. Again, this is not a matter of fault or choices made on obvious levels, but there is something to the fact that two people can be in the same place at the same time doing the same things and only one is Wounded. [liiona24] Please comment on the validity Of the Reconnection As brought forth by Eric Pearl as " new" Healing energy There is no "new" healing energy. All Healing is essentially the return of Order from Chaos, however that is described or packaged, tangibly or intangibly. There are many illnesses in modern times that are susceptible to "miracles" or "energy healing" because the illness never truly existed in the dimension from which it was diagnosed, such as AIDS, Cancers, several other chronic issues. This is not to say that there are no such things as collapses of immune systems, or Cancers, or other chronic issues, but those categories have a percentage of diagnoses that are valid diagnoses at one point, but because the "illness" is not Physically-rooted, the return of Order to the Emotions, or Intellect, can "cure" the "illness." Often, the return of Order to the Intellect and Emotion does not require Physical Healing, or Treatment, but a simple shift in beliefs or feelings. Energetic Healing can ONLY ever return order to the Intellect or Emotion, which may then result in being reflected Physically, of course. When we say "Energetic" here, we refer to those practices that would not require Physical contact in any way. In short, to clarify with Marion: we think the idea of "The Reconnection" is more likely a "Repackaging" of ideals and energies that have always been available. This is not to say that the repackaging is "bad," because even our own teaching requires repackaging for different students with different capacities for hearing us. [Nicholas] When Dr. Pearl and others refer to "new" healing, could they be referring to the validity that as a collective, we are opening up to more possibilities of healing as a reflection of the shift to Mature Soul paradigm? In response to Nicholas: we cannot speak on the behalf of the fragment who is known as "Dr. Pearl," or his associates, but we can say that a Mature-based Paradigm would have far more validity to the concept of "Energetic" healing, since most Emotional and Intellectual Wounding would also be considered as valid. In a Young-based paradigm, most Healing is only considered valid on the levels of the tangible. It is only in recent years, relatively speaking, that the concept of Therapy was considered something of validity."Therapy," in terms of Psychologists, Pscyho-, etc. [TimW] Can you please elaborate a little more on what you said, "Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers"? Possibly a couple of examples with relation to physical "energetic" healing (if time permits)? For example, Tim, those who are wounded from attempted Homicide would clearly benefit from healing that focuses on the Action Axis, so that a sense of Order for that individual's Time or Space is vital, or put another way: that the Martyrom and Impatience is addressed. Those who suffer from the wounding of attempted Homicides do well to have had their sense of Control brought into focus for their lives in some way, because Homicide, or Impaling/Impact, on a Body CAN throw the entire life into absolute lack of control. For those who are wounded by the methods of Suicide, it is vital that Inspiration is brought back into his or her life. Suicides are usually the result of Inspirational elements collapsing into Chaos, so a return to Order in that context can help bring about True Healing. We realize that "Suicide" is also the Negative Pole of Self-destruction, which is an Expression Axis Chief Feature, but this is another example of Context. In the context of Methods for implementing Wounding, Suicide correlates to Inspiration. In the context of Results of Fear, Suicide correlates to Expression. For those who are Wounded by Accidents, there is a necessity for those fragments to understand "the message" in the "Accident," as all Accidents are Expressions, or Messages. In fact, there are no "accidents," but it is a valid category for understanding how Wounding is implemented, and Accidents equal Messages. Healers, then, would help that fragment to understand what "lesson" or "message" might have been in the accident. [Diane_H] Can you explain the difference between Intellectual and Emotional healing? Are they often intertwined? Intellectual Healing would require the Order returned to the Intellect, or the Intellectual Center to return to the Positive Pole of INSIGHT. This is usually a matter of returning the fragment to a state of honesty about his or her life in a way that brings that Insight, instead of a chronic state of REASON. A chronic state of Reason will bring the Intellect into a constant state of overdrive, looking for patterns that are not there, or creating patterns that are not valid, forcing justifications, reasons, explanations for that which is not understood. This, then, can lead to affect the Emotional Center in a way that pulls the Emotions into a chronic state of Negative Pole, which is Sentimentality. Sentimentality is the confusion and blurring between Symbols and Meanings, and when Symbols and Meanings become confused, Beliefs are generated. And so the Intellect that forced a false pattern then begins to believe it in the Emotions. A simplistic example would be in one who might Think that someone's intentions were to hurt her, and so begins to believe that this person did hurt her, because she can feel that hurt. But the truth will have been that she forced an explanation or a reason for someone else's choices that she did not like, and then the person who symbolized "Love" for her is gone, so that means "love" is also gone, and now she has become Intellectually and Emotionally wounded. To bring Healing to her Emotionally, she will have to regain the Order that allows for a person to symbolize Love, but does not confuse the conduit of Love for Love, itself. [Diane_H] So it could be said that Intellectual wounding comes from one's interpretation of symbols, and Emotional wounding is the emotion that result from it? If the Healing is not addressed Intellectually or Emotionally, it can then move into Physicality, and she will either open up to, or create a path to, Homicide, Suicide, Accident, or Natural methods of implementing one of the 7 Woundings. Yes, Diane, that could be one way of describing a pattern, though we might clarify the statement to read: Intellectual Wounding can come from False or Forced Interpretation, and Emotional Wounding is the Belief/Feelings that support in that Falsehood or Forced Interpretation. [Kathryn41] I assume that 'wounding' can also be a 'choice' for a life experience, but how often does the choice to experience one type of wounding lead to a collateral type of wounding, for example, a consequence of choosing a body type that allows for the chosen wounding to occur but experiencing an additional injury/illness that came along because of that body type? We will say here that it is rare that Wounding is CHOSEN, though sometimes, it is. What is a more accurate way to understand the nature of Choice, in this regard, is that Wounding is often a RESULT of Choices. [Kathryn41] the example I can use is a child with type 1 diabetes - born with the condition - a chosen condition more easily manifested in lunar body and then later in life experiencing another type of injury for which the lunar body is especially susceptible A Body Type is chosen that may have predispositions to certain health issues or deformities, but it was not necessarily the health issues or deformities that were chosen, but that they were hooked in to other choices that were more important as priorities. For instance, an Essence may have thought it was a great idea, or a great method for balancing Karma, to choose a Body Type that may lend itself to a sort of dependency that allowed for kindness, patience, and Love to come into the experiences of the Personality, from within and without. Often these "great ideas" go in all kinds of directions once the life is in motion, but that is part of the Chaos and Beauty that is inherent in any life, even in the most-perfect of body with the most-perfect of plans and Karma-free life. [Oscar] What would those wounded by natural/shutting down need for True Healing, or is there no healing possible since it's natural? UNDERSTANDING. That is all. Those who are Wounded by Natural Causes/Shutting Down can often do best with a simple bit of comfort in Wisdom shared with him or her or from him or her. In terms of Wounding/Dying, Natural Causes/Shutting Down is about bringing comprehension to the moment about the life before exiting, and this can show up as the life "flashing before their eyes," or from loved ones around the bed side, etc. In terms of Wounding/Dying, it might even be better understood as "Gratitude" that is a part of the Healing. In terms of Implementation, with something like a Natural Disaster which may bring Impact, Impaling, Illness, Poison, etc, it can still be helpful for those who experienced that Implementation to grasp the nature of Nature, so that it is not seen as personal. Though it will always be the most-helpful to focus on the actual Method of Wounding, for Healing purposes. [VLS] Is there any healing that can be done with the dying involving touch, if so can you advise the best approach-thank you ALL Physical forms of Healing affect Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies, whereas Emotional Healing can only affect Emotional and Intellectual Bodies, and Intellectual Healing is limited to Intellectual Bodies. This is because the denser the form of Healing, the more it can be accessed by the subtler Bodies. This is not to say that Emotional Healing cannot bring about Physical Healing, but it would not be direct. Physical Healing, or rather, having a Physical Medium for Healing, can bring about multiple layers of Energy for use in the multiple bodies. For instance, your Touch can bring with it the Comfort that is of the Physical Level of Healing, the Affection that is the Emotional Level of Healing, and the Permission that is the Intellectual Level of Healing. We are speaking to you about a very specific kind of Touch that you bring, and not all Touch would bring that same kind of Healing. A simple resting of the hand on the person who is exiting is enough, and in some cases, the moving of the energy of the bodies through use of swirls and various contact points, can be the form that is used. We will clarify here that all Bodies are interconnected in many ways, so the Healing that is offered without Physicality does not mean it will not help the Physical Bodies. And not all Physical contact is a form of Healing, but is often forms of Treatment. For instance, the Emergency Room of a Hospital is mostly-filled with Treatments, not Healing. Healing often comes later. [DavidB] Someone asked me to pose this question: "What makes one healer more effective than another?" RESONANCE. There is no Healing between a Healer and The Wounded without Resonance. This is why even the most "whackadoodle" of false healers can bring about such "miracles" (which is a term to describe false or misunderstood forms of Beauty from Chaos) because there is Resonance between the two fragments. And it is why the consistency of even the most powerful Healers cannot facilitate Healing for everyone, because there must be Resonance. Resonance can only come through Empathy, which is built from Experience, which may or may not always come from within the current lifetime. In other words, one can only truly facilitate Healing for that which he or she has already healed within himself or herself, even if that healing came in other lives. We know this is a rather broad topic, but we think we have covered enough tonight for some provocation of thought and exploration that may shed insight into the experience of Healing and Wounding. We will conclude here. Goodnight to each of you. Goodbye.
  3. Michael Speaks - November 26, 2016 - Chaos, Consciousness, and Current Events Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Bobby: Glad you could find us again :) We never left you. Today we are asked to speak on the nature of chaos and what it means for you to navigate chaos. We know that Troy has asked this because of recent political events in his country, but we will speak to this topic on broader terms than shifts in power. First, we will describe Chaos as unseen, unexpected, and unpredictable patterns that are easily altered by influences. This is different from Randomness and Accidents. Randomness and Accidents can happen within Chaos or Order. Randomness and Accidents do not always lead to Chaos. This is an important differentiation because Order does not preclude Accident or Randomness. When it is said that "there are no accidents," or that "randomness does not exist," these refer to the perspective outside of or beyond locality. Accidents and Randomness do happen, but these are local experiences, not higher truths. However, Chaos is a Universal Truth that permeates all known Universes. Chaos is everything that is beyond one's understanding, perspective, and predictability. The Universe is sustained by an awesome Order. This may seem contradictory to Chaos, but it is not. Chaos and Order describe the same things, but from different positions of perspective. Order exists with or without our understanding, perspective, and prediction, and Chaos is the process through which we comprehend that awesome Order. Chaos is the fuel of consciousness. Order arises from the evolution of consciousness. Repetition and Routine are antithesis to consciousness. During your incarnations you will always walk a fine line between Randomness/Accident and Repetition/Routine. A fine line between Chaos and Order. If your life leans too far toward one or the other, there is struggle. Too much Chaos is too much fuel. Nothing has a chance to make sense, to be understood, to be learned. Too much Order is too much conclusion. One of the greatest struggles we have seen in any advanced civilization is the struggle of what to do with so much Order. Order is often either heightened to such a degree that Chaos is profoundly minimized and any threat to that Order is policed and punished, or Order reaches a certain plateau of sedation that prompts members of that civilization to crave and create a dive into Chaos. You can see both examples of this around your world. This is true on an individual level, as well. If your life begins to lean too much toward Order, you fall asleep. You either end up struggling to maintain this Order at any cost, or you throw it out the window, so to speak, for the deep craving for Chaos. What you see happening around you in your world right now is the result of large pockets of collective consciousness deeply craving Chaos to counter the sedation of Order, and large pockets of collective consciousness entrenching themselves even further into Order that will police and punish any threat to that Order. Each Soul Age is a dance between the imbalances between Chaos and Order. The Infant Soul is born from Order and thrives in Chaos. The Baby Soul is born from Chaos and thrives on Order. The Young Soul is born from Order and thrives in Chaos. The Mature Soul is the first Soul Age to recognize the value in both and begins the conscious effort to allow Chaos while nurturing Order. The Old Soul fully embraces the value in both, but learns to call upon or allow each as necessary, but more likely finds little to differentiate the two in terms of personal preference. Both are understood to exist as universal and valid, having always been the undulating spiral path of consciousness. The Old Soul sees Chaos and Order as Fractals. In more useful terms, what we mean by Fractals is that when one is looking closely at chaotic patterns, it is understood that it is not always clear how this contributes to larger patterns or order. It is also understood that any interjection will alter the patterns so action and inaction have consequences in the larger pattern. What you are seeing happening the world at the moment is an example of every one of the above. Every Soul Age dance between Chaos and Order is heightened and amplified and clarified and distinct. Because of the current Paradigm, the dance that is most obvious is the union of Baby and Young Souls competing with the new Paradigm being rooted by Mature Souls. Baby Souls thrive on and defend Order. The Young Souls thrive on and generate Chaos. The Baby Souls flock to the Young Souls for comfort because Young Souls seem to embody Order, but the Young Soul actively exploits the Baby Soul need for comfort and then profits from the chaos of their uncertainty. The above describes the paradigm of the past 2000 years or so. The Mature Soul Paradigm will, eventually, break this cycle of codependency between Baby and Young and provide a world where Chaos and Order are embraced, but not pushed to extremes or limitations. You are witnessing a scramble on the collective stage of consciousness to figure out how to interject new ideas and paths that can accommodate Baby and Young as legitimate positions of perspective and experiences without codependency that tends toward extremes. Maureen: Yes!!! As most of our students are Old Souls, our "job" is to help remind you of your capacity to see events as part of the cosmic Fractals that are existence. This is easy to teach, but not so easy to learn. The most important elements to remember when shifting to your Old Soul perspective are: ONE - you do not have to understand the bigger picture. Yet. You are an experiential point of consciousness in a fraction of time and space. It is not your responsibility to comprehend patterns on any universal scale. These matter to your Essence, but they do not matter to you. TWO - pay attention to what matters now, and what matters to you. The higher patterns that are Fractals are made up of your choices. They are made up of your actions. Every major or minor action or inaction is an interjection into that higher pattern. It is never helpful to opt out of participation because of a higher pattern or bigger picture. THREE - embrace Chaos as fuel, and Order as what you do with that fuel. By the time one has reached the Old Soul Age, whether known to the species or not, it is clear that consciousness is dependent upon a fine balance between Chaos and Order. This Universe is an awesome Order of Chaos. This is true in terms of spirituality and in terms of neurology. Your point of consciousness in a body arises from the processes of the brain that require a fine balance between Chaos and Order. When something is true, it tends to be true on all levels, and this is true of the nature of Chaos and Order as it exists in limited systems and unlimited systems. Even our sorting and access of the Akashic Records is a practice in this. So while your world may lean toward exciting Chaos, while some are entrenched in Order, and all of this contributes to the greater Fractals of existence, it matters what you do, what you do NOW, because you are not outside of the patterns. You are the pattern. You may dismiss some actions that can be taken, some new path of thinking, some different way of being, some activity that may be seem too unfamiliar or complicated, or some behavior that seems pointless to address, but what you choose to do or not to do matters. And this is why we say that you are are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn, not as a novel and catchy phrase, but because of moments like this in your life, in history. We will open the floor to a few questions at this point: QUEUE IS NOW OPEN. PaulyBoy: This is a copy paste, I think Kurtle had to leave early: PaulyBoy: "I'd like to ask about what major convergence(or divergence) nexuses have occurred to this point and contributed to current events today. I understand there are a lot, but I'd be asking about the most specific or relevant contributing to this chaos vs order "dichotomy"." PaulyBoy: I'm asking because of that recent convergence from 1770 AD where US wasnt founded PaulyBoy: I'm just kind of wondering if there are more or others involved since we're heading into the 2020 potential IS PaulyBoy: (Since that is a copy paste for someone else, I won't necessarily ask followup questions. Thanks!) The Chaos vs Order dichotomy is not unique to this Parallel or Timeline. It is true everywhere and every "when." The only difference is in how it plays out in its various extremes in one direction or the other, or when each cannibalizes the other, so to speak, or each are amplified to oppose the other. So there are no Convergence or Divergences that particularly contributed to the current dynamic in that regard. NEXT, Bobby. Bobby: Speaking of Chaos, are there still "wild cards" lingering from our recent election cycle and if so, how might they potentially contribute to either Chaos or Order? We see 3 "wild card" scenarios yet to be "dealt," and these appear to be within the time window between now and the end of March of 2017. One directly involves disruption of the United States' Presidential process; one is a natural or forced disaster that alters trajectories due to its magnitude; one is a complete unknown that is dependent upon whether patterns move toward one extreme or the other by March. From what we can see, all or none of these may come into play. The more extreme the divide between Chaos and Order, the more likely each would play out. As these are "wild cards," we cannot say if they would contribute more Order or more Chaos, but we can say that the prompting of these are specifically to help bring balance, not amplify extremes. NEXT, Juni. Juni: You have mentioned in the past that each Age takes roughly half the time of the previous one ,(e.g., Baby 4000 yrs, Young 2000,) is this also true of the transitions in general. Related to that, you mentioned things are happening faster and evolution going at a quicker rate than ever before, is this also true of this transition or is it unique, due to social media or other influences? Is it sped up, this time around? It is true of the transitions, in general, if we understood your question correctly. The more consciousness knows, the easier it is to know more. This contributes to what would be perceived as an acceleration or increased speed of evolution of consciousness. More fragments incarnating know more, and it is much easier for you to learn collectively, even if up against great set backs and challenges. In terms of Social Media and the Information Glut, this is an example of the fine line that consciousness walks between Chaos and Order. Currently, the bombardment of information comes at such a pace that it is a lot of fuel for consciousness, but when the input crosses a threshold that can no longer bring Order to the Chaos, then this input turns into addiction or shut down. In other words, this amount of access to information does "speed things up," but because it has not been learned how to manage this amount of input, it merely speeds one toward a crash. Too much Chaos begets more Chaos. The crash forces Order by slowing down and sorting the Chaos. However, on "the bright side," solutions come fast, as well. Many will crash, but many will adapt and find ways to sort the information to help others process more appropriately. So while the chaotic acceleration may lead faster to a crash, it is also what helps lead many to faster solutions. In the past, these extremes took a long time to create and undo. The creation and undoing can happen faster now. But as with any process that becomes condensed, its intensity rises, as well. NEXT, Maureen. Maureen: I think, as many others do, that we are headed for really difficult times unless many people, pivotal people, do some things that NEED to be done. The problem, for me and many of my friends who are Older Souls, is that we feel powerless to help in any way that feels consequential. I have been a pivotal person in other lifetimes so I know what that feels like. In this lifetime I am not pivotal or at least not in the way that I have any political power. I do know we all have personal power and I do speak up and act when I can. Is that enough? Is personal power and just genuinely helping others where and how we can going to be enough? Is it enough? We know it is not an easy position to be in when among millions or billions and trying to make a difference, but we can only say that you do make a difference, no matter what you choose to do or not to do. You cannot do more than you can do, but you can do all that you can do. If there is more that you can do and you are not doing it, then you can consider the question of "enough." You must determine this on your own. There is no standard for how much is enough. We can only say that "enough" is either when the necessity for action has ceased, or you have exhausted your possible contributions. If you are concerned about "enough," it is fair to examine where you may not be doing something when you know you can. It will still be your choice to do or not to do, but if the question of "enough" is meaningful, this must be considered. Keep in mind that what you do matters in many ways that are not always obvious: What you do matters to you. What you do matters to those close to you. What you do matters to your evolution. What you do matters in time. What you do matters in space. What you do matters now. And keep in mind that you are not the only one doing it. Maureen: I felt relief when you said that last point. The more visible you are in terms of encouraging paths that you know bring well-being and healing and recovery, the more you find the network to support you. Final question: PAUL PaulyBoy: Hi Michael PaulyBoy: You have said in a previous chat or two that the world in a few decades may not look like anything we would "recognize" very well. I'm not sure if this is politically (nations etc.) and/or environmental. Can you give us some possible ways the world might "look" in the coming decades that would not be "recognizable" to us very much from this point? PaulyBoy: Not predictions, of course, just some possibilities. Thanks! ... I feel like there is sooooo much going on, and with probabilities and choices., so I'm just curious on what a few possible scenarios might look like, if you have time. Thanks! PaulyBoy: I'm trying to find the exact "not recognize" session quote to reference, but I'm out of time. Thank you! There are 10 scenarios that come up as highest probabilities from this point that lead to an "unrecognizable" future, 7 of which are not appealing. We can cover these in further exchanges. The top 3 include the decline of power in the United States and its move toward isolationism while China rises in power and aligns with Russia; a complete overhaul of government that leads to global unification represented by a complex, but profoundly enriching kind of global democracy, acceleration of technology, and implementation of a resource-based economy; and a global catastrophe due to collision with an object. These are high probabilities within 50 to 100 years. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
  4. January 18, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. This is Michael. One moment. As usual, we will simply start with an Open Floor. You may begin your questions. [Lights_Edge] In Quantum Physics there is the Orthodox Ontology to explain the nature of the world. This Ontology contends there is quantum randomness. It is used to explain why occurrences such as two hydrogen atoms excited at the same having the exact same proxy wave will emit a photon and return to their ground state at differing times. Is this quantum randomness truly random or is a force present effecting the differing outcomes? [Michael_Entity] Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs. There is a predictable “force” that has yet to be capable of being measured, contained, or conceived of by science, yet. From the current perspectives available, there does appear randomness, but a “force” will eventually be recognized. The theories behind what that “force” may be, presently, is limited. The depiction of “randomness” as a theory is simply an exasperated conclusion. [Kathie89] I have a question about Cadence Mates. Who has the closest ties: those in the same row on the same side of love, truth or energy, or those with the same position sharing the 3 different sides? Are there any cadence mates present tonight? [Michael_Entity] The closest ties will be those within the 7, whether you “see” them in rows or columns. The seven fragments comprising a single Cadence within a Greater Cadence. There are variations on the links and the definition of Cadence Members can be extended. For instance, a Cadre of Entities is a group of Cadence Mates, technically. Additionally, the first fragment of each Greater Cadence within a role is linked, as is the second, etc. The first fragment from a Cadence is also linked to the second cast fragment of the second Cadence in the second Greater Cadence, etc. This can be seen as a “diagonal” visual of links. The first fragment of each entity, regardless of Role is linked to the same fragments in the same position within their own Entities. 6 out of 7 times, these are Essence Twins. Though your Energy Ring does not follow the “Classic Model.” As far as Cadence Members being present here tonight, we do not have the focus available through this channel in this forum to look determine this. A little investigation on your part can determine this fairly easily. [Annette] When you gave Troy my profile, you mentioned an intimate connection between us when you were physical. Could you tell me more? Was I ever able to be of service to you and does this connection have an effect on why I am so drawn to this group? [Michael_Entity] We have a particularly profound link to you from over 10,000 years ago. Certain events of an Intellectually profound magnitude still affect an Entity while in the Causal. Though we cannot equate our resonance to some fragments still extant as “emotional,” there are events that we are still processing related to these fragments. In our case with your Essence, which we must differentiate from the Personality known as Annette, several fragments from our Entity learned some of our greatest lessons about “god” through you while we were physical. This greatly affected our pursuit and final cycling off. Since the effect was of a profound Intellectual nature, we are “affected” by this and respond to the resonance. This happens occasionally. We must note that this does not make a fragment more or less meaningful to us; we merely share the reality and nature of interaction as it comes about. [Barb] Good evening, Michael. We have been discussing lately the possibility of an Infinite Soul manifesting very soon (as in this month) in the form of a woman. Would you discuss the probability of this occurring? [Michael_Entity] Speculation of that nature can only be that, “speculation.” When the Infinite Soul manifests, it will be known without question. Considering the Infinite Soul is of the utmost compassionate and intelligent capacity, variations in manifesting can fluctuate at any moment. We can say with some degree of accuracy that the female who would host the Infinite Soul is alive, as is the child, who may manifest first. The probability of the Infinite Soul making itself publicly known within this month or the next six months for that matter is quite low. We say this based on our perception at the moment. We do not believe a manifestation would occur before end of 2001, at this point. [Dewliet] Hi Michael. In a recent session, you referenced a “time” when I had three bodies on this planet simultaneously. I'm wondering “when/where” fragments typically “meet up” with those types of “other selves” to assimilate and process information, and how this process differs from that of information gleaned from parallels. Do we have to “wait” until we reach the Causal plane before we learn what our “other selves” know? [Michael_Entity] When an Essence maintains more than one body within a time frame, they are treated as any incarnation would be treated. They are not the same as Parallel Selves, which exist within different dimensions, or frequencies. These are physical bodies within the same space and time. When one of the Personalities dies, it will process the life as would any other incarnation. Essence has a vast perspective and can either begin another life based on the experiences of that particular Personality's experiences, even while another body is still alive, or “wait” for the various bodies to complete that overlapping time frame before gauging a new life. In terms of Parallels, there not only parallel Earths and Lives, but Parallel Astral Planes and Causal Planes, created from the momentum of Entity choices, collectively. Parallels begin integration after the Causal. [MaryBV] I feel much “better” being in my skin these days. Could you comment on the energy around us at the moment, and have we turned a corner into calmer waters? [Michael_Entity] It would not be amiss to lend validation to the Centering for a Year. Last year was Instinctive Centered, giving rise to a great deal of agitation, fear, automatic reactions, and processing. This year, being Intellectually Centered (Troy's original channeling of Moving Centered is inaccurate) is far more comfortable for most of you. An Intellectually Centered year can lend a great deal of perspective to what has come to pass. If most of you “look” back over the previous year, for most it will “feel” as if it never was, or that it was passed through in a daze. Great changes were made last year that may have appeared to be deeply challenging, but now you will be able to “see” how much you have cleared and the room created in your life can start to move energy in ways that are more comfortable and appealing. We will add to our response to Mary that this was an incomplete answer, but more universally applicable. There are personal changes you have made in perception that have moved you to the Positive Poles of Personality, as well. Though it may not have appeared so during your process, your commitment has been Good Work. [mamajo] when were the great pyramid and the two following it built, if not at the same time in our timeline? I think he is referring to the fact that they might have been built by our future selves back in the past with the aid of extraterrestrial beings. [Michael_Entity] Yes, what you consider your “past” in several instances, was created from your “futures.” In the case of some of the Pyramids, these “were” created as a means for transportation by combined concepts of humans and “aliens” in your future. In “your” timeline, they are now a part of your past, but they are a part of your past because of a timeline that still links those structures to your future. There are several instances in your future where there is the building of practical forms of transportation between planets, the Pyramids being only one instance. Within 200 years of your future, the Pyramids are built into your past, as well as what is called Stonehenge. Much of what cannot be explained in terms of these structures being built is due to tools used from that time frame's future. The building of these structures is not a major global event in its occurrence in the future, by the way, and these structures are only more obvious and mysterious in your “past.” When it “became” relevant to create these structures from your future, the methods and implementation for time travel “were” done discreetly. The initiation of the entire sequence that leads to the building of these structures has already occurred in your current past, during what was called the “harmonic convergence” in the late 80's. In fact, the entire initiation of what has come to be called the “new age” is, in effect, directly linked in time to the initial event [in the future] surrounding the plans for the pyramids and Stonehenge. This is because the ideals and ideas that are eventually used were born of that time frame in the 1980s and are being built upon, especially from those who have concluded these structures could not have been born of what is known of the past. If your timeline parallel continues along a momentum that includes the need for the creation of the Pyramids and Stonehenge, then that timeline would experience a destruction of structures, hence leading to a “time loop” necessity for re-creating them to “try again.” It is hoped that the creation and proper implementation of these structures has secured a timeline that will allow them to simply remain a part of your mysterious history. The Great Pyramid as it sits in your current timeline helps to reduce the possibilities for catastrophic planetary quakes that, in the future, were found to have been a result of micro-cumulations that were found to have been able to be dampened and directed from that area of the planet if it had been caught in “in the past.” The Pyramid has a micro-effect, not only on the motion of the Earth, but on the movement of Time around the Earth. Most global land stability in your timeline in history can be attributed to the effects of the Pyramids that “were” built by going “back” to that most pivotal point in “the past.” Though extraterrestrial assistance is a part of this process, both those humans from “the future” and the species originating off-planet are experienced by the people of the past geographical era and time frame as “gods” and or “aliens.” Stonehenge and Easter Island are other power points upon the planet that benefited from large structures that were built as part of a kind of magnetic stabilizing network. The “charge” of these structures that was more obvious in the past has since worn off to a great extent, but the effects remain and can be measured. The bulk of land mass has been stabilized, but what has “yet” to be accomplished is a stabilizing force that carries over into the 22nd Century. The 21st Century in most parallel timelines with and without the stabilizing structures is still hit quite hard by climate and earth changes, but “so far” only those without the stabilizing structures have been met with near-extinction. Even in those timelines with the stabilizing structures placed in the past, the magnetic network falls short of sustaining through the final few “bumps in the road” manifested in the 21st Century, though they are tremendously minimized. In the timelines without these structures, it is in the beginning of the 23rd Century that the technology is available for affecting timelines. It “was” hoped that in the timelines where the structures helped minimize the catastrophes, the technology would become readily available in time for renovating and bringing “back to life” many of these stabilizing structures to help extend stability through the worst parts of the 21st Century, allowing for exponential growth that was not possible for another century in the timelines recovering from catastrophes. Though alien contact is quite usual for most humans in the late 22nd Century, it is only the simple genius of the Pyramid structures as gateways that allow for the combined forces of on and off-planet species to link from future to past, and to “go back” and help secure a more stable planet and timeline. So far, it could be said by us to be the greatest experiment we have ever studied of any sentient species we know of. We realize the nature of this scenario is fantastical, but there is more involved with your universe than is presently considered, except by some older souls. [Paulyboy] I have a question regarding video and role-playing games. These are two mediums which I enjoy ‘playing’ in. Are these simply things that we can “lose” ourselves in as opposed to doing our “life,” or could it be the life, etcetera? So I think the question is, is it something to “lose yourself in,” or are these mediums, and all the jazz about them, limited to a case by case appraisal? Personally, I have questions about this. [Michael_Entity] As with every other physical manifestation on your planet, these games are portions of the psyche, soul, and mind manifest. It is said that the brain's use is only approximately 10%, but this is not so. You merely need 10% for the use of perception and interpretation; 90% or so is used to generate reality. For instance, your physical means of communication is Telepathy manifest. Your film industry is dreaming, manifest. Video “role playing” has existed for as long as the human has existed. It is a means of grappling with the variations of the core Personality, giving rise to the sub-personalities with permission. Therefore, role-playing is Sub-personalities, manifest. Regardless of the depth or brevity of the “game,” its purpose remains the same. [Hector07] Is there ordinality and cardinality present as to cadre within an energy ring? If this is so, would it have four cardinal points, as in 1, 4, 7 and 10? [Michael_Entity] Cardinality and Ordinality no longer apply on that level, only Positions within the Support Group. [Barry] Earlier tonight, you said, “Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs.” My question is: there has been much debate throughout history on whether our fate is predetermined or if we have free will. It sounds like you are saying that the functioning or “fate” of the universe is predetermined. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that, nor did we imply it. We merely say there is an awesome order to events that, at this point, escape the perceptions of scientist and their tools. We do not imply predictability, either; simply that the theory of “randomness” is not accurate. On the level of the reality being explored, “Quantum Reality,” you are literally attempting to grasp the dynamics of the Higher Moving Center or the Buddhaic Plane. Of course, it is only a minute manifestation of it, but it is part of that fabric, nonetheless. In the grasping of the Higher Moving Center, you will fall into the Positive Pole of Beauty or the Negative Pole of Chaos. We do not imply that Chaos is incorrect, but that it is the relinquishing of recognition of patterns. Recognizing patterns, whether within the life or the level of Quantum Physics, is Beauty, or Oneness. Relegating an event to the theory of Randomness is lack of recognition of those patterns. The pursuit toward recognizing those patterns is part of all sentients’ eventual growth. Certain fragments, entities, and cadres will pursue this for the species. We will state here that because a pattern can be observed, either in probabilities or retrospect, does not remove the concept of “free will.” Consider your weather: It cannot be predicted, but you have entire television networks and time slots devoted to it and counted on. The patterns have been recognized and can be perceived. Knowing whether it will be stormy tomorrow or sunny does not remove your ability to choose, nor can the knowledge of the probabilities for weather be entire relied upon. [nemo999] What are the rules for giving us information? I don't believe we can just ask you for a cure for aids. Also, the scientific information seems to be limited to the knowledge of the channel and most people are not science types to ask about quantum physics or quantum gravity, basically some things we need to learn for ourselves not depend on channeling. [Michael_Entity] All channeling will be limited to some degree by the channel's level of education, insight, and soul age, but this can be transcended in many cases, depending on the self-esteem and beliefs of that particular fragment. The channel you know as Troy has little education in regard to history and geography, but prefers this, as this allows him a sense of validation when information transcends his own knowledge. This is one of the ma………………… [SECTION OF TRANSCRIPT LOST] He recognizes the limitations, while openly invites the transcendence. We do not limit our responses to you. We are only limited to your questions. If information is not available for a particular subject, which can be the case, we respond accordingly. We do not speculate, except in terms of probabilities. [nemo999] Would it be possible to channel a cure for aids for example? [Michael_Entity] This disease would have to exist first. What most seek in terms of a “cure,” by the way, is a removal of the lesson, which we are incapable of doing. What is sought as a “cure” in many cases is removal of pain, as well, which is not the cure. What we would suggest as a cure for something would not be orthodox or traditional, but an implementation of perception of self and other to a degree that extinguishes Chief Feature. Additionally, there is no “cure-all.” There will be foundations that can be shared as a basis in approaching an illness, but the individual would determine what the actual “cure” is. We will comment again that the fragment known as Louise Hayes has done Good Work in the progress toward “cures,” but has limited her presentation and practical implementation to a commercially acceptable scale. More work on that Task will continue through others and into other lives. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  5. June 3, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We find it is important to emphasize that certain terms that have become standard in what is referred to as our Teaching have not been fully explored in their varying contexts. The Higher Moving Center, in and of itself, can be labeled many things in terms of its positive and negative poles. When speaking of the Higher Moving Center in terms of a fluctuation of Energy on any given planet, it must be referred to in terms of “+beauty” “-chaos”. Beauty is the conscious recognition of patterns while Chaos is simply the relinquishing of that recognition. This past week and weekend have proven that most prefer the default of Chaos over Beauty. (We will add here that most of our system actually resides within three layers. There are three layers of Overleaf observations, for instance, which accounts for the varying “discrepancies”. They are not discrepancies, but focuses on different layers/levels. We will address this at a time more conducive to understanding.) At this time, it is suggested by Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] that questions be responded to. We realize our time is precluded tonight, but we will respond, nonetheless. Begin Questions. [bn] Michael said that most people choose the default of chaos. Can we have an example of the choice someone had and how they chose? [Michael_Entity] Chaos is easier to manage. Over eons of time, Crisis can be managed much more effectively than life, itself. Therefore, it becomes the “default” for many. We have no specific examples, but we suspect some of you can come up with a few from your week past. Beauty, on the other hand, which is essentially the conscious recognition of pattern and the assimilation of place in that pattern, is much more challenging. Either perspective is a valid route through a lifetime. [bn] By “Beauty is the recognition of patterns”, does Michael mean patterns in how events occur around us synchronistically? [Michael_Entity] We would agree, yes, this would be one meaning. [bn] The idea that there is no haphazard reason for the coincidences in our lives? [Michael_Entity] “Haphazard” is from the vocabulary of fear. This term is selectively used to refer to those things with which recognition of beauty has not occurred. “Synchronistic” and “miraculous” are different names for the same phenomenon: selective perceptions of Beauty. Everything is synchronistic and miraculous in reality. These labeled events only stand out because they resonate so strongly with what Personality intended or observed as beneficial. Many things dismissed as “bad luck” or “obstacles” or “haphazard” are as useful, simply not always consciously “intended”. While in the lifetime, Personality can free up reservoirs of energy from it’s environment and increase conscious interaction with Essence by seeing the patterns (beauty) in all events, (however unsatisfactory). When your terms for recognizing beauty shifts to include even those things not consciously intended, you may find your world easier to manage. Fulfillment extends from trusting your progress. Trusting (another term for recognizing beauty) allows you to change directions in life easily when determined, rather than fight your own Essence’s creativity. We are extending past the territory of the Higher Moving Center flux and into more abstract areas. We can discuss this, but in terms of this past week’s energy “weather”, we have answered. next then [M6] When Michael entered here I felt a rush of energy, felt by others (backchannel) as well. This continues. Was this Michael, our own guides, or what? [Michael_Entity] The experience most of you feel in these chats with us, either though Otterly [Troy Tolley] or our other channels, is simply the alignment with your own Essences. This is the one way you can sincerely “hear” us, otherwise you are using your Modes in the negative pole. This connection to Essence may or may not be accompanied by sensations, but we rarely see any of you refraining from this opening to non-physical contact during our contact with you. We are familiar. The “rush” is that connection which is available at all times, of course. By opening in this way, you actually “touch” us, bringing our energy into your own as a teaching unto itself, not simply an observation or mode of phenomenon. We are saying much more than can be typed through this channel during a chat so we seek to answer or respond to your own private concerns without the limitation of this channel’s ability to type. Therefore, some of you “feel” us more specifically. next then. [Fe] Do the events in my life over the past week relate to the state of the Higher Moving center and the topic of Chaos? May I view this situation as catalytic for change? [Michael_Entity] You may view your experiences in any way you choose, however, yes, you gained clarity from the negative pole of the Higher Moving Center since it is more recognizable. As with most of you, you will begin to move into the more positive pole as this next week progresses. This will be a week of what some refer to as “ah-ha’s!” When dealing with the Higher Moving Centers, it is difficult to find any actual “negative” effects, regardless of the poles. What you have deemed your “chaos” can later be recognized as your ‘beauty”. We see that you know what you must do. This fluctuation of energy (catalysis) also helps you refine your sense of self-trust. We suggest, if you choose, to act upon that. next. [Jn] Is “going with the flow” being on the neutral from +beauty and -chaos of the Higher Moving energy? I am wondering if it is possible to adopt a neutral or balanced stance. [Michael_Entity] “Balanced” or “Neutral” is always relative to the fragment experiencing the given circumstance. While one fragment in the NEGATIVE pole of an Overleaf may find complete imbalance, another may find a sense of “home”. We find that MOST prefer the Positive Poles, but it is not necessary to BE in the positive poles to experience balance or neutrality. For instance, Charles Manson and Ted Bundy are at peace with their stances. If you prefer Chaos as your method of change and connection, that is your choice. If you prefer Beauty, it is equally valid. The Tao has no enforced maps. next. [bn] I feel that lately my life has become very confusing with many important decisions looming. Would this be due to the increased energy in the Higher Moving Center? I think I am also beginning to work on my 4th Internal Monad. I sense that I am entering a period of re-evaluation of my life. Is this 4th IM stuff? I feel like I want to change so much and let go of so much and yet still I wish to “play it safe” and change nothing. [Michael_Entity] It is accurate that you see yourself in the Monad. You are not entering the Monad, however, but moving from the 4th Level to the 5th Level. You will enter the 5th Level in reality later this year, but for now, it is this fourth level that holds your attention. You are “pushed”, so to speak, as the Higher Moving Center levels your playing field and opens opportunities for you to manifest from your being, your Essence. Your wanting to “change so much stuff” is a result of your Essence having already “changed it”. Personality need only make decisions now. You will begin to see the results of this over the year ahead. You have been amiss in thinking the attention you have given to what it is you wanted to change requires more than simple decisions. There is no need for elaboration in planning. A decision will set your Sequences into action. Your sense that these changes are “impending” is your cue that these changes have already been made on an Essence level; they are yours. Part of you has sought them out and here is your opportunity to allow them, or reject them. Claim them or turn them away as you decide. next. [A2] My own experiences have been very physical in the past weeks. Besides the “ah-has” of next week, what are the next steps? I guess I am asking for further weather report if that is possible. [Michael_Entity] In the weeks ahead, particularly the next two, you will see what EXACTLY holds you from resting into your chosen environments. You get to see some things in light of what “has to be changed” in order to proceed. We will note here that most of our students are on a fast-paced movement of experiences in regard to their Goals. The next two weeks will allow a removal of some past life/early life beliefs that have been carried, blocking you, and thus allowing a freer form of expression in your environment. It will be your choice to act upon the opportunities, but we see most of you in this room attracting the opportunity to extend yourselves past what you previously expected of yourselves. By this we mean, as your ROLES. To elaborate: regardless of your Personality Dynamics, your Roles are able to “shine”. It is a rare opportunity, and it is an even rarer collective event, but most of what you recognize as familiar about yourselves will be set aside for more “essential” expression after the next couple of weeks. This year is specifically geared toward that. We will share more about this as the next month unfolds. It is at that time that a Community Shift in parallels will occur and at that time more will fall into place. Final questions? [M6] A Community shift in parallels? Explain? [Michael_Entity] There are three levels of Parallel Shifts/Nexus: Individual (happening throughout the year at any time deemed appropriate by the Essence), Community Shifts (a group of shared consciousness steers themselves into a reality of shared interests); and Global, (a collective Sentience of a given planet moves into various parallels for various explorations of reality as a whole). At this point, July 17th looks to be a window for many Community divergences and convergences. We will conclude here, then.
  6. This was originally posted on 6/17/08. Thanks to the hard work of CHERYL for making this possible so quickly! Based on the combined videos of my recorder and Cheryl's phone, we were able to transcribe the session as best we could for your reference and archiving. A document version is attached to this post for your convenience, as well. I have taken the liberty to add or change a very few parts of the session that just did not flow well or make much sense. The spoken word is so different from the written word, so I apologize for the meandering way I channel vocally. I tried to clean it up a bit here. I also forgot to bring up after the session that I KNEW something was mis-channeled; that something had come through that was misinformation, or a mistake, but not until I saw the video did I realize what it was. I've corrected it in this transcript, but it was when Michael was giving examples relating the Goals to the Alive Factors and they related Server/Change to Submission... it should have been Re-evaluation. Nothing huge, but it was still some bad channeling I wanted to correct. I am posting the fairly raw transcript here before posting publicly because I just wanted you to have it asap. I will post it publicly later this week. Enjoy! MICHAEL SPEAKS Mid-Atlantic Region Gathering June 14th, 2008 VIDEO/AUDIO TRANSCRIPT Courtesy of OceanCheryl MICHAEL: We are here, and hello to each of you. Please bear with us as we come through because it takes a little bit of time for us to get a smooth flow going through Troy, but it should be cleared up as we progress. So again, hello to all of you. We understand from Troy that the question posed to us, or the topic posed to us, is that of differentiating between "living your life," and "being Alive." And as with a great many words in our system, in our philosophy, there are nuances that are worth exploring, and this would be one of them: the difference between "living your life" and "being alive." And as with several parts of our teaching, we can put it into a system that can be used by you as a reference so that what we share with you today is within reach of your daily living. And as with a great amount of our teaching, it may or may not seem unfamiliar to you. For most of you it will feel rather familiar, as we put it into a system of seven frames of reference. So first we will define what we would have as the definitions for "living your life" and "being alive." We could say that "living your life" is simply maneuvering through your days in reaction to stimulation. When you are simply living your life, and we are saying this not in a way that is to describe it as "less than" or unappealing, or bad; it is simply a different way of living, and it is a very common way of living, but when you are simply living your life, you are living in states of reaction, for the most part, through being stimulated by events, people, or things. Your choices become less empowering, and more towards the side that we described as reaction, more passive. You react to things that happen in your life and you build upon this. What can happen as you live your life is that you build a foundation based on these things, and then it is very difficult to get out of those patterns. So what we will describe to you as ways "to be Alive" are very simple redirections in your day--to--day living, so that maybe you can make a change that you would prefer. Because while it is quite fine to live your life based in reactions and stimulation, it can get tiring. It can be difficult. And if you don't prefer those, there are other options for you to choose. To "be Alive," then, may be obvious to you in that your day-to-day living would just be a matter of conscious choosing. What you do with your day is your choice. How you respond to the events, and people and things in your life is a matter of response, not reaction. You are present in those experiences, and so you are "Alive." You are experiencing; you are not avoiding. If you are afraid, you embrace that fear as a form of information, and you do not let it dictate your choices for you. So a very simple way of defining "being Alive" is simply being able to consciously make your choices in a direction that you would prefer. Now what we'll do is describe some areas that we feel need to be in place to understand the difference between living and being alive. And the first place we'll start is with the concept of Change. In order for you to feel Alive, to be Alive, change is an important part of existence. It is an important part of being on the physical plane, or on any plane for that matter. Things change. To be alive is to be open to this change, to allow the change, to make an effort to do things differently than what you have been doing, if things are not working. So in order to be alive, to feel alive, allowing for making the effort for change can go a long way, a lot farther than you might have anticipated. When change happens TO you in a way that seems like it is an imposition, you still have the ability in those moments to make conscious choices in those matters, to respond to the change rather than to react to it. But what most of the students that we know do in order to feel alive, which in reality is simply living, is do the counterpart of Change, which is Crisis. In order to feel alive, many of you create, find, attract crisis situations into your life on a regular basis, and this keeps you feeling alive. Whether you like that idea or not, it is an exciting prospect for Essence to have the sense of being alive, whether it is in that form or in the other form, whether it's in crisis, or in active change, or conscious change. But many of you default to allowing life to change only during moments of crisis. As we said at the beginning, there is nothing wrong or bad in that, but it does help you to look at the spectrum of your days in your life to see whether you're living from a matter of default, where crisis is what propels you forward in your life, or whether you are at least countering that with active efforts to make change and conscious choices as a form of direction. As we go through these, if you feel you would like to make a comment or ask a question, feel free to do so. The next area that we feel brings an aliveness to you, to your life, is Beauty. And by this, we mean the ability to look at your life and see the bigger picture, to be able to look at your patterns of existence and find the beauty in them, to be able to understand where you are in relation to your past, and your anticipations of the future. Seeing your life as a tapestry that was created by you, and not just imposed on you. Keeping in mind that the more active your choices are, the more likely your life will look a little prettier, or beautiful, than those who are a little more passive in choices, and living from states of reaction. Often, when living from that state, life doesn't look as beautiful. But at any moment you can shift your perception to find the Beauty by looking at the patterns, looking at what has led up to where you are, and making your active choices from there. This does not just include the bigger picture of your life, but the bigger picture of other people's lives, looking at the beauty in the world as it is, regardless of war, regardless of poverty, regardless of health issues. This does not mean you do not care, but that you find a way to see the beauty, and this can be tough for many of our students, to find a way to see the beauty in the hardships that some or many fragments endure for a lifetime. And by beauty we do not mean that you are literally seeing something pretty, but finding an appreciation for the awe in how it's all ultimately working. When you are not able to make your conscious choices, and live your day--to--day state from a place of being alive, then this particular area that we refer to as "finding the Beauty in life" defaults to Chaos. And this is where you start to break down the patterns that are in your life into what could be termed ugliness, or confusion, feeling as if life is happening TO you, instead of FROM you in your day-to-day living. When you have defaulted to reaction and stimulation, it looks like life is a mess. It looks like the world is a mess, or that others are a mess. Acknowledging that you may not grasp the bigger picture is the first step towards being able to see the bigger picture. Allowing room though, in your consciousness, to trust that you are part of a pattern that you have created, or a part of a pattern that you are interpreting from your experiences, can help you then to move more towards seeing the beauty, and feeling alive again. But most of you know what we are speaking of: where you look at the world and think that it has more symptoms of chaos than beauty. But the truth is that there is beauty in any pattern, when you look at it from a wide enough perspective. The next area that we feel might contribute to your understanding of what it means to be alive is to choose and create Freedom; in your day-to-day living. Each of you requires a certain amount of Freedom for you to feel alive. If that freedom becomes restricted, it can feel unpleasant. This freedom applies to many levels of you, of course, your spiritual freedom, your intellectual freedom, your emotional freedom, and your physical freedom. Understanding what it means for you to be free, or to have a free amount of choice in your day-to-day living, is important. But what many of you do is fall to the default of freedom, and experience Boredom. Because with freedom... most of our students have come to learn that with freedom comes a need for structure. They go hand in hand; they are not mutually exclusive. With freedom comes a sense of responsibility, a sense of discipline. When most fragments start to create a certain amount of freedom within the life, it becomes terrifying, because then issues of responsibility come into play. Issues of discipline, self--discipline (which simply means a heightened awareness of your choice making process) comes into play, and then what you do is you fall into the default structures, which we could describe as routines, repetitive patterns, or Boredom. You check out, and you let life fall into its own shape or a momentum that you've already started, and this can make you feel less alive. In order to break that you simply need to define what it means for you to feel free in your day-to-day living, and then allow yourself the permission to create the structure required for that freedom to be in place. We will go through each of these quickly, but revisit them if you have questions at the end. The next area that we would describe as needing to be in place for you to feel alive is Love. This may seem obvious, but we are not talking about sentimental attachments, we are talking about true embrace, true intimacy, being able to relate, to resonate to something beyond yourself, and allowing that resonance to come to you from other sources. When we are speaking of Love in this context we are talking about your relationships, your connections, to others... your embrace of differences, your embrace of self. What most of you do as a way to feel alive in your day-to-day living is to sort this experience and reduce it down to what we would describe as Contrast, or comparisons. So in order to feel loved, you compare yourself. You stimulate yourself with the idea of who is better and who is worse, how you are better and how you are worse. And then you feel as if you have an idea of what's lovable and what's not lovable. This, of course, inherently divides you from parts of your life, parts of yourself, other people, and it can become quite debilitating when you are constantly comparing. The next area that we would describe as being needed in place for you to feel alive is Truth. And by this we mean that you have a true form of communication happening in your life; that you are able to listen. That you actually take a moment to comprehend your exchanges, your interactions, what's happening in your life. To look at your perspectives more closely, rather than dismissing them. Because we have seen many students decide what is true without examining that decision. And quite often, when you do not like what you see as the truth, you start to break down your circles of communication, so that you can keep the truth that you have decided is true, without getting feedback to contradict it. So the default version of truth, the default that many of you resort to as a form of feeling stimulated, is to simply return to Entertainment. And we call this Entertainment because it is quite often a form of escape. It is a form of checking out from the reality of Truth into places that either distract you from the truth, or help you to put into place a truth that you find more appealing. It could also be described as lying. But in your day-to-day living, so that you could see where your default behavior falls, entertainment could be the easiest way to describe this. This does not mean that if you enjoy entertainment that you are escaping, but that in terms of being stimulated versus being alive, or feeling alive, many of you substitute Entertainment as a form of reality, as a form of truth, as a form of communication. In fact many of you will use entertainment as a medium for communication with others, so that you can talk about TV shows and the latest movie, without having to talk about what is happening in your life. Even the news could be deemed a form of entertainment that distracts you from the truth of your life, and the truth of reality, because what you see on the news does not reflect the entirety of reality. The next area that we would describe as needing to be in place for you to feel alive is to have a Vision. It is very important for people to feel as if they have a Vision of where things could go, possibilities, potentials, dreams if you will, although we wouldn't particularly leave it as just dreams... but a Vision. And by this we mean that you are able to see all the parts of your life and put it together in a way that it works for you as a resource for making happen what you want to happen next. So having vision, having clear vision, can help you to feel alive. What many of you do instead is default to one of the most destructive words that we have seen in language, which is Hope. And as many were shocked by our take on the word Faith, we would also put together similar responses to the word Hope. Many of you default to a form of Hope that things will get better, you Hope that someone will love you, you Hope that you can do what you want to do. Hope is a disengaged form of creating your life. It is a presumption that something else is going to make things better. It's a presumption that life happens TO you, and not FROM you. And the truth is, that it happens in both directions, but when you resort simply to Hope, you've left out your part. What we would suggest for some of you who use the word Hope is to move into a more empowering way of looking at your future, and possibly use the word Trust. We've always encouraged the word "Trust" because this is based on experience; it's based on its being time-tested, and it's personal. And we use the word Trust to describe the fact that you have had similar experiences or patterns in the past and you have survived them. You have made it through. So it is okay to trust that you will make it through again. This is more of an interactive approach to living your life; a more Alive approach, rather than simply sitting back and "hoping for the best." The last area that we would describe as needing to be in place for your sense of being alive is Spirit. Although there are many who would claim to be atheists, or rejecting of concepts of non-physical worlds, that does not need to be in place for a person to have Spirit in the life. By Spirit we mean that you recognize yourself as a part of something bigger, that you recognize yourself in others, as part of being a dynamic that, at this point, is not quite fully understood. It is a sort of surrender to the magnitude of the force that IS life. It is an embrace of the concept that, however much you would like to understand life, people, God, Essence, us, that it is truly, at this point, not completely able to be concluded in concept. So it could be said that to have Spirit in place is to have a sense of open consciousness beyond your personal philosophies. What many of you do (and we are going to make this more specific to our students) is that you'll default to a need for simple stimulation as you live your day-to-day [life], and you resort to what we would describe as the Supernatural. It must be exciting. There must be something supernatural, paranormal, and this is where you get your sense of Spirit, from this place; this playful, if you will, place of approaching Spirit. And as we said at the beginning, this is not bad. It is not a negative thing. But if you reduce the concept of Spirit, if you reduce the concept of your being a part of a bigger source, to the Supernatural, then you are constantly looking for proof, for something that we, at this point, have not seen capable of being proven. This does not mean that you cannot have your personal experience that allows you to validate your experiences; this is not what we are saying at all, but looking for proof of Spirit is quite often a failure, because they are very different dimensions of experience. So allowing room in your day-to-day life for Spirit, for the existing philosophies and perspectives and ideas and ideals, can allow you to feel more alive rather than simply living by looking for proof of Spirit around you. And we realize that we trudged our way through these concepts through our channel, but we will pause here before going into other layers of it to ask you if you have any questions regarding it. And if not, then we may have questions for you. NICK: I have a question. The concept of freedom for people who seem to really have a strong need for freedom in their lives, that's like a recurring theme beneath the freedom, do they tend to also have, or to fall back on, addictions? MICHAEL: Addictions can fall into place for most of these areas. It's not really exclusive to one or another. We are looking to see if there is anything that stands out, but we would have to say that it is not exclusive to the area of freedom, but that the type of addiction that might occur is usually specific to an area, of one of these areas. So if a person has a strong need for freedom and then falls into addiction, that may be a way for them to be finding structure. The addiction forces them into positions where others may intervene to create the structure, and redirect them into a way that brings them back to a place of responsibility and personal choice. So we can't say that it is exclusive to any area. Other addictions may be related to other areas that we could give examples for if there is a necessity for that. If not, does this answer your question? NICK: Yes. MICHAEL: Next question, if there are any. We will give you a moment to think it through. We don't want to put everybody on the spot. GLENN: I am curious to know, what would be the best method to determine how true our Truth is, or whether we are establishing a false Truth and defending that, or actually using a right method of finding Truth. MICHAEL: We would say that if you are bringing a sense of Truth to your days, then that sense of Truth needs no defense. That sense of Truth needs no escape. It need not be imposed. When a person has created a Truth, or has discovered a Truth, or has found an alignment with the Truth, or is sharing a Truth, there is simply no need for it to be defended. That is the clearest and easiest way that we can respond to that question. It does not mean that you have concluded the Truth, but that there is no need for you to protect it. There is no need for another person to accept it. There is no need for another person to understand it. That it is simply your Truth. That does not mean that it is going to be an ultimate Truth, because it's very difficult, as you know from working with our material, that there are various levels of Truth, and most of the time you are going to be dealing with personal Truths, which are not always going to be the same as everyone's around you. Personal Truths are simply that, your personal truths, but you can determine whether these are personal truths that are bringing you a sense of aliveness versus simply living, if you can ask the question, "Do I defend these or do I hide them?" And if you hide them or defend them, or avoid, or escape, then you are probably creating a deceitful approach to your life. You are simply moving into lies and entertainment. Do you understand? GLENN: Yes. MICHAEL: Any other questions? Well, what we can do now is point out another layer of the information that you might find helpful in terms of your overleaves, so that if you look at your role, or your Essence, and your casting, and find which of these particular areas [of aliveness] they match up with, which we'll get into in a moment, it can give you an idea of areas where you tend to default, and where you may have challenges in terms of simply living or being alive. The Servers or Server--cast fragments may have the most difficulty with Change, and defaulting to Crisis. It is very fruitful for many Servers or Server--cast fragments to feel as if they are saving the day, as if there is something being rescued, or challenging the resources of a Server to make things better, and so it can default to Crisis. Actively making choices for Change are inherent qualities for the Server because they CAN make things better, by their own definitions, but quite often this is prompted by Crisis situations. (note: Here Sandy has a fit of coughing, and Server Sheryl goes to get her a bottle of water, saying "here I am, jumping up again" as if to illustrate the point on cue. Michael smiles.) The Artisans or Artisan-cast among you may find Beauty as a form of strength, but also having difficulty with issues of chaos and overwhelm, and trying to control the patterns of life rather than observing and finding the Beauty in them. As we go through these, if you are of the roles, or the casting, you are welcome to chime in if these are resonating with you, or making sense to you, and you are welcome to ask for further details. The Warriors, or those who are Warrior cast, can have the strengths of providing Freedom through structure, but also defaulting to boredom, routine, and confinement. The Scholars or the Scholar-cast fragments resonate to the issues of Love, and for those of you who are Scholars or who know of Scholars, also know that there is a great deal of struggle with the issue of comparison, or contrast, gauging, and anticipating. Sages and the Sage cast, of course, will resonate to the issues of Truth, and possibly default to Entertainment, as we discussed already. Lies, self-deceit... and we don't describe those words in a way that is particularly as harsh as they sound, but they can be quite subtle, and very simple; that you tell yourself one thing about yourself, and try to prove this to others, or that you tell yourself something about others, and constantly look for evidence of this, and so forth. SANDY: How about telling yourself something about yourself, and then trying to prove it to yourself? MICHAEL: What is your question? SANDY: I was just wondering if that would be similar to what you were saying: if that would be a latent tendency for the Sage, to try to make it true? MICHAEL: If you are trying to make it true? this is a question that's not quite as specific as we... SANDY: Let me try to rephrase. You were saying that the Sage might have a tendency to tell themselves something about themselves and try to make other people believe it, and what I was wondering about was if there is the same tendency to try to make yourself believe it. MICHAEL: Yes, but, we want to make it very clear that there is a difference between trying to better oneself in one's own eyes, or to grow into a concept that one might have about one's self, but usually, if it's in the case that we think you are describing, then the self-deceit is much more difficult to sustain. And so yes, it's true that you can decide what's true about yourself, and then try to convince yourself of this, but we are looking at that, and it's very rare that it doesn't include trying to get others to believe it, so that you can [believe it, too]. Do you understand? It's usually not an isolated event. It's very difficult to lie to yourself without trying to find somebody to mirror that lie back to you. So it could be said that yes, that's a possibility, but it's a little more difficult and usually does include other people. If not, then it goes toward seclusion, isolation, avoidance, and distractions. The Priests and Priest cast, of course, resonate with the Visionary strengths in the world, and in life. Being able to see the potential, bypass logic in order to see how everything can come together as a resource for an idea to be implemented... but they are also the ones who'll be the first to tell you to have faith and Hope, and to blindly move forward in your life and "hope for the best". And the Kings and King cast, of course, resonate with Spirit and often default to a distraction with the Supernatural. And we can go into more details for any of these if any of you would like. Keeping in mind that we are speaking in terms of your role and your casting. If you would like to see where in that system you might have some strengths and some defaults, you can also translate your profile by looking at which axis or role your overleaves resonate with, and interpret it from there... which would be too complicated to interpret for everybody, but if you have a great amount, let's say, under the Server [category/column/axis], that resonates with the Server qualities, then you would also want to look at the issues of Change, Crisis, etc. So did all of this make sense to you, and do you see the differentiation in your own lives? Do you see your defaults? Do you see your strengths? And do you see the options that you might have in your day-to-day living to bring about a greater sense of Aliveness versus Simply Living? You are welcome to speak up. We know we have some Sages here. GLENN: Wouldn't the Goal be a factor in determining this search for truth, for being Alive? MICHAEL: Yes, it can be a factor, as well. We simply point out the Role and the Casting because they will always have a great deal of influence during a life. The Goal, and all of the other overleaves, will have equal influence, but what you can do is take each within a context and say that, for instance, if you have a goal of Re-evaluation or Growth, that you might have issues of Change and Crisis, or Vision and Hope. (We can go through all of the overleaves, but we think you can reference this later.) But within the context of a Goal, we remind you that a Goal does not necessarily describe you, or what you are; it describes the quality of life that you are extracting from the life, that you are looking for within the life to experience, and so if you have a Goal of Re-evaluation, you may be more inclined towards issues of Change and Crises, because it brings about experiences that will lend more to your Goal. SANDY: Michael, I am a Sage with Scholar casting, and from the beginning as you were describing the two sides, in each one, in each pair, I identified with one or the other, and I thought "Oh! Oh yeah, that's what I do! But I'm not a Server, I wonder why?" Then you went to Artisan, and on one side I identified with one more than the other, and I went "ok, why am I doing this?" It's like, I have all of these. Could you help me understand that? I mean, I know what you said about following the numbers and all that, but... MICHAEL: We suggest to you the cross-referencing [by Role/Casting/Overleaves] simply as a way to explore further, but all of these [factors for Aliveness] are relevant to all of you. It is not one area or another, although you may find yourself relating to one more than the other, we tried to put together a picture here that is a picture of an individual experiencing the whole of life. And these seven areas seem... [to offer a picture of what needs to be in place for bring about an Aliveness to the whole of life for everyone.] (battery died on the video and ended mid-channeling) END PART ONE BEGIN PART TWO (taken from video recorded as quickly as possible from Cheryl's phone) MICHAEL: .....to you as a form of helping to bring about a sense of wholeness and aliveness, and ask you a few questions as a form of bringing about doing things a little differently than usual, contributing to your first area of change. So, what we would ask is if any of you would like to share an idea that has come to you while listening to this, that you feel you would like to implement, for instance, starting tomorrow. What first came to mind to you to implement differently? SANDY: Ok, I'll go first. I would have to say that the first thing that really occurred to me that I really wanted to make a part of my life is to stop reacting as though life is something that just happens to me. I would really like to have a more positive attitude towards being in charge and making things happen but at the same time the only things that gets me scared of that is that I also feel its important when things don't go the way I planned, to be able to make the best of what is, and it's hard for me to understand how to reconcile those two things. MICHAEL: How to reconcile trying to create what you want, but allow room for ... Well, this goes back to what we described as simply control. There is a great difference between creation and control. If you look at your days, if you look at your life as something that needs to be controlled, then it will become painful when you lose control, when it's not something that you can manage. But when you look at your life as something that you are creating, what you do instead is that you are contributing to your days, you are participating in your days. You are not dividing yourself from the process as a way to control it, but you are shaping it, you are, for lack of a better word, creating it. When things do not go the way that you would like them to go, it is much like... and we usually do not speak in such poetic ways, but it is much like planting a seed, and having that [plant grow and the] flower bloom, you don't know exactly which direction it's going to grow, or how it's going to grow, or its strength, but your ability to respond to the needs of the moment is a form of creation. But to control a plant's growth, which is possible, we are not going to say that it's not, and it may not be the best analogy, but to control it is a form of monitoring that can become exhausting, and is a matter of stimulation and reaction. If it's going this way or that way, there's a reaction to it, but creation is the ability to respond to the moment's needs, if necessary. And we will also remind you to throw in looking at the spectrum that we have described in these seven areas and see what might help you in your situation, and in this case it might be to remind yourself of the concept of Spirit, that there are parts of this that you are not going to understand, and we are speaking from the lowest levels to the highest levels of it, when we say Spirit. Sometimes you just won't understand. This doesn't mean you can't continue trying to, it doesn't mean that you don't try, that you have to resign from trying to understand, but sometimes you won't, and sometimes you won't like what you've begun to understand fully, and the concept of Spirit can help you to recognize that it is a part of being Alive, is allowing room for those unknown factors. So do you see the difference between creation and control? SANDY: Yes. MICHAEL: And does this help you to look at a situation that may have gone awry, and see how responding to it is different from reacting to it? SANDY: Yes, very much. MICHAEL: Next question. CHERYL: I'm a scholar-cast warrior, and on the point of structure going to confinement, I've found the past few years, I've almost gone into a self imposed confinement, justifying it with things like a broken leg, and not being able to leave the house, or feeling like if I can't do anything about a situation I sort of retire into my "cave", and I'd like to sort of break out of that and be able to put a more productive structure into place rather than finding even physical reasons that I must remain confined. I don't enjoy it particularly, but I find safety in it in a weird way, and I'd like to change that. MICHAEL: And your question is how to break that? CHERYL: How to break the habit of a self imposed confinement when I find myself in situations of change or crisis where it almost becomes an excuse that I can't do anything about it because of this self imposed or physically imposed confinement, and I do have physical issues. MICHAEL: Yes, and that is a reality, that's simply a part of the Truth of your life. And to own that is its own form of Freedom. To work within that structure is its own form of Freedom. To use it as an excuse to retreat is a completely different angle, and you do recognize the difference between acknowledging the truth of the situation, and retreating by using it as an excuse; there is a difference. The way to break out of this is often very simple, and that is simply to do something different; to go to the larger picture of Change and implement something different. We don't think that we are telling you anything you don't already know, but it is very easy not to do the different thing. It is very easy to default, and that is fine. Giving yourself permission to have been doing it that way over time is its own form of Freedom. But implementing something different and following through with it looks like one of the only ways that you could break that pattern. So, to be more succinct, we would say that owning the confinements that are in place, the Truth of the reality of some of your limitations, allowing that to be the Truth, is its own form of Freedom. But if you want to do something within that structure, rather than thinking of it as restrictions or limitations, look at it as a structure, then it becomes a playground of Freedom in itself. Then you can choose within that what you can do differently. There are many things that we can suggest that you could do differently but those are personal matters and we can discuss this with you at another time, but that is the clearest we can get at this point, that you would just need to do something different. There are no magic answers beyond your own efforts. If you are not making the effort, then the change won't happen; then the Freedom won't be there, then the Truth won't be there, and then you'll lose your Vision. Your efforts, your participation, is the key. So if you have resigned to the default, which is fine, and a matter of choice, then there is nothing that is going to rescue you from that, except you. Do you understand? CHERYL: Yes, very much so. I understand that it requires action, but sometimes you don't know which direction to go. MICHAEL: If you are confused about which direction to go, then you would want to look at these options as clearly as possible and simply move in a direction that you feel is most appropriate and then, once you have explored that option, don't condemn yourself to having made a mistake, to give you further proof as to why you should have stayed confined. Retroactive confinement is just as powerful as current confinement, so looking at your past as a pattern of mistakes or as a pattern of bad judgment is its own prison, whereas looking at the opportunities and experiences, and the adventures that have come from these so called mistakes, (and we won't argue with you that it would be easy to call them mistakes, or easy to call them difficult directions,) but there was definitely a beauty in these that you may have overlooked. CHERYL. I agree, there is. MICHAEL: So, when you are looking ahead at all of your options, to avoid choosing those options is still a choice, but it won't move you forward. Moving forward, and knowing you can trust yourself to deal with it, to handle it, to adapt, and giving yourself credit for that, is the only way truly to break out of what you described as your confinement. Sometimes, the options ahead, based on where you are now, which is a result of past choices, can also look like whatever direction you go in, you're going to have to run through fire. CHERYL: (laughing) Yes, it feels like that sometimes. MICHAEL: And we would not disagree with you; we would not say that there was one safer route than another, or to even direct you in one safer route than another, as that would take away your choice, but it is valid that quite often you corner yourself in your life in a way that when you look up everything looks on fire, or everything looks underwater, however you would like to describe it. And you can still get somewhere through that. Getting through that opens up more options, and branching your way forward through your choices is the only way to get out of that space that looks surrounded by fire. We just wanted to throw that in because we don't mean to diminish the experience of being physical and looking up and feeling like your choices are extremely limited, or difficult in making as you move forward, and thinking it must be obvious what to do next, because it should be a beautiful, lovely route that stands out. Quite often, it's not. It's a rickety old bridge that's your only way forward. Next question, if there are any. GLENN: I'm a sage, artisan -cast, and I found great resonance in the concept of retreating into entertainment, distractions, not remaining creative. That's an area I would like to change. I've seen that behavior in myself. I know we are not dealing with polarities, but in the positive sense, you would want to remain creative, and not, as you say default and not let your choices... ...and the other part I resonate with is that, well I have difficulty with actually, is that... how do I see the beauty in many of the choices I have made? Some of them are... you mentioned the word awe, but I would say "awful." I am hoping to find a way to reframe that in a way that, going forward, will give positive results. MICHAEL: We will point out that as you grow within a lifetime, or across lifetimes, you are going to look back and see where things could have gone differently, where choices could have been made in a way that would be more to your liking from your current perspective. It is easy to just look back and see those moments, from "Oh God, look at that hairdo" to the awful, as you say; choices that have been made that impacted others [or yourself] in painful ways. The way to see the awe, and the Beauty is to translate that into the Innocence by looking back at your choices and honoring the Innocence in who you were, or who that person was, in the past. That person did not know, or have the same perception, that you do, now. So, condemning yourself to past choices that were made does not necessarily bring about the opportunity for creativity or the Truth. Instead, it locks you in the past, in a place that is not you anymore. Looking back and finding the Beauty and the innocence can allow the forgiveness that might be needed or required for you to move forward, which of course falls under the aliveness factor of Love. Forgiveness would be included in that. Looking back at yourself and finding the ability to embrace that, to honor the Innocence that was you, however "awful" it may have been, can help you to... telescope, or embrace those fragments [of yourself] that you left in time, to bring about an energy that allows for creativity and the Truth. Does this make sense to you? Does this work a little better? GLENN: Oh yes! Very much so. SANDY: I have a follow up on the same line there. In the process of looking for the Beauty in some of those, as Glenn put it, "awful" decisions, I'm wondering if some of this stuff might not connect with Karmic situations, agreements, monadal relationships. Wouldn't honoring those things some of the time, couldn't they have sometimes caused us to make decisions that from now, to the personality, might look awful, but to the Essence might look validating and fulfilling? MICHAEL: Yes, and that is one of the double--edged swords of being alive, or even living, is that Essence pretty much gets a kick out of everything. And this can be very disturbing to Personality, or to the physical self who has one life, and Essence is enjoying all of the struggles and difficulties and pain that you are going through, in its own way. Not in some sort of sadistic way, but in a way... in the same way that many of you go to the theater, or go to the movies, and lose yourselves in those experiences, knowing you are safe, knowing that you ARE safe and are not actually a part of that movie. Yes, it can resonate with you, it [the movie] can bring out emotions and experiences and fears, but it's not the whole truth, it's not the whole picture. Essence has a little bit of an edge on your life in that regard, that it knows that ultimately, you are safe. This can help you at times in your life, from the angle of looking at the factor that we have described as Spirit. It could also included in that sphere [of Spirit] that you are ultimately safe. You could call it safety, that ultimately, you are safe. That's a quality that falls under the heading of spirit. Recognizing that there is a part of you that may have gained something from what you've experienced, something that you probably at this point, or most likely at this point, do not understand. Give yourself time to understand it, give yourself room to grow into, or grow out of the experience that you've just had, or have had. But we will also point out here, that personality ultimately has the control over the choices within the lifetime. Essence will never override the choices of personality. Essence can have the greatest, most beautiful ideas for a lifetime, and personality is born, and finds itself in many more messes than Essence could have anticipated. So it could be considered a factor that some of the experiences that you go through are a part of a plan, if this is what you mean? SANDY: At least could be, in at least some situations. MICHAEL: You have to be a willing participant in those plans, for them to be implemented. The only time that it's not is in situations of karma, where someone has interfered with your choice. When someone interferes with your choice, in earlier lifetimes [younger soul ages], the karma was created. Karma is easily created, and it is a very dramatic and exciting experience for Essence, because when your choice is interrupted, a lot of reaction comes from this, and karma is basically the balancing of that [energy generated from] reaction. It's not black and white, it's not tit for tat, it's simply a balancing. But, as you grow older in soul age, you tend to RESPOND to interruptions of your choices rather than REACT to them. And so karma is less and less a factor in your life. So keeping that in mind, that there is an intelligence in your personality that goes beyond just this lifetime, or [an intelligence] that you have the capacity to access that goes beyond this lifetime, that can help you look at your daily life and experiences, that can look at the experiences that may have been karma, or created karma, and that your RESPONSES can help create the next moment rather than your REACTIONS causing more karma. So we wanted to throw that in there as an observation for where you are now as older souls, whereas in earlier lifetimes it may be true that you are knocked around a little bit like a pinball [in a pinball] machine, and you learn to, you learn within that structure how to maneuver. But even then, personality is a willing participant. Even in karmic payback, for lack of a better phrase, those [instances] are not imposed on you. SANDY: I think I understood that they weren't imposed, but what I was looking at in this, part is hypothetical, but in an earlier life, something happened between me and person B, and they owed me a karmic debt, let's say they killed me, and they've taken all this time, and that karma was never resolved, the debt was never repaid. Now here I am at an old level, and it may have happened at a baby level, and I happen to run across them again could that not lead me to make a decision in my relationship with that person that a few years later looking back at it I say "How could I have done such an awful thing?" Whereas really I was doing what, if I look at it from the point you're saying now, of awe, if I could understand it I would realize that it's a beautiful thing, that I was balancing this thing, and I shouldn't be kicking myself for what I did, because there was a good reason for it. MICHAEL: Yes, you could look at it from that perspective. SANDY: I am going to be more specific. Michael, is this okay? CYPRUS: They like it when we solve our own problems. SANDY: I have had a karmic relationship with a fragment whose life... I caused their death. I wasn't told that I killed them, but I caused their death, and so I had a debt to pay. An agreement was made to make that repayment by giving that person life this time, where they could be raised by someone who was their Essence twin, to be their parent, and I was going to repay the life by giving the life to that essence by the birth, [but giving the baby up for adoption]. So the debt was repaid by the birth. My personality obviously went along with that, and did all that, but for a good many years after that happened, I was sitting around going "How could I have done that? How could I have given away that child?" I could be in horror of the decision I had made but later with perceptive in the way we are talking about today, you could look at the awe of the whole thing, of how beautifully it all played out, that it didn't have to be an eye for an eye or a death for a death. The repayment was made, I judged myself harshly and wrongly for a really long time, but now I can see the beauty of the whole thing, that I couldn't see before. Not to diminish personality over essence but it is all kind of tied together, Karma and personality and essence, and that's what makes it awesome. CYPRUS: I agree with you that it is beautiful, but let's say you didn't have contact with Michael, and let's say you didn't have that opportunity, I think the concept is to be able to see the innocence in yourself at that time, and forgive that person without that external information, or without the pretty picture that you paint. I'm not saying that's doesn't make it easier, and that it's not the way to do it, but to be able to look at yourself without that knowledge and say "I did this, I did it out of innocence", and see the innocence in that decision ... not just forgiving yourself but forgiving others. So maybe even though it is a beautiful big picture, the concept is that you don't always know what that big picture is, you don't always have that all laid out for you all beautifully. And you have to be able to, in situations where you don't have that, still see the innocence in you. MICHAEL: Yes, as Cyprus points out, you may not have had the luxury of, and we use that word loosely, of having the insights that we would offer to you, (and even then you may have rejected them,) as a way of getting out of the pain that might have been caused by the choice of the past. So with or without the information that was shared with you about the past, it's still a matter of choice as to how you interpret the past, how you look at the past, and how you find the beauty of that. Another fragment may have looked at that and found the beauty or the innocence in his or her own way without our information, or another fragment may have received this picture of an awesome pattern of which he or she has taken a part and still left themselves completely condemned by that past choice. So the point that we are trying to make is that it does not matter what information you have, or lack of information you have, or how choices were made, or what influences may have been involved, your perception of the past is still a matter of choice, it's still a matter of interpretation. It is still a matter of finding the Beauty, the Truth, the Love... all of these factors that we have described as being a part of the whole life or a life that is felt as being Alive. All of these factors need to be owned by you when looking at your past, so that it can be interpreted more productively, more creatively, and with, for some of you, forgiveness. If we get lost in all of the causes, in all of the reasons, then you get lost in the default. You get lost in the stimulation. You can look back at the situation that you described, and see it as a beautiful pattern that essences were involved in, or you can look back at it and say from a very simple perspective "I made that choice, and it was the best choice that I could have made at the time." Whether you would choose differently or not is not a matter of reality, it is not a matter of concern. So we hope that we are conveying to you that all of the ingredients you are describing as being factors in the past are not as important as your perception of the past now. SANDY: I guess what I was trying to say in a very convoluted way is that if one defaults to beauty, if one can achieve a habit of defaulting to looking for the beauty, that whether or not you know those specifics, one can then accept the idea that everything happens in beauty, and if you happen to learn the details of it, that's swell, but even if you can't, if you can get to a place of defaulting to beauty you can make it your task of seeing beauty out of the situation. MICHAEL: Yes, except that you will never default to those areas because they require conscious participation. They require choice. So it will always be an active effort to interpret and see the Beauty in your past. We want to point that out because it is not something that you can work to finally achieve; that it will be [permanently] in place, and from now on everything will be beautiful. SANDY: Well no, I don't mean that's something that will happen, but won't it happen more often if you practice that? MICHAEL: It won't "happen," as much as you will make it happen. SANDY: You have to default to something. CYPRUS: Yeah, but Default is not the conscious choice, default is the automatic... it's the reaction, not the response. You have to learn to respond with seeing Beauty. The default is when you just... SANDY: Well that's what I want to do, to just change the default. CYPRUS: Well you'll have to make that choice time and time and time again. MICHAEL: That [default to being Alive] is not going to happen: it's a manual process, because you are not going to stop life from having chaos, you're not going to keep life from having crisis. You are not going to be able to avoid that part of life. Instead, the part that we described as being Alive, is being conscious, whereas defaulting to an area means you have excluded the possibility of the Aliveness factor; Beauty in this case. When you are in a moment of chaos and you make the choice to find the Beauty in it, then you have created a more spherical experience. We are not saying that once you have reached a place where you are able to see the Beauty in things, that everything will suddenly be beautiful, though it will become easier, or more second- nature if you will, to be able to find those patterns of innocence, Beauty, awe, and you will not feel so trapped in chaos, or any of the other defaults that we have described. CYPRUS: And sometimes you're not always ready to make that choice at the time, and maybe not even ten years later or twenty years later... you look back and you see that you made the choices, and now you feel more comfortable, more accepting, whatever, and you are able to see it, when you weren't able to see it when it was closer. It's not always immediate. MICHAEL: Which would go into the factor we have described as Spirit. Sometimes you simply won't understand at the time. And to give yourself room for that understanding and comprehension is a way of bringing Spirit to it. So it looks to us like we might want to wrap this up and if there is another question we will take it, otherwise we will conclude. KERRIN: I have a quick question. You brought up Spirit, and I'd like to know a little bit about why the supernatural comes as a default. There is much about the supernatural that is real. CHERYL: Just non-physical. MICHAEL: It is not surprising that the King would bring this up. We use the word "supernatural" specifically for the older souls simply because it can become very enticing to look for proof of "other," proof of the beyond, proof of something; another source. But as we said, even in this particular event that you are describing as channeling and we are speaking to you, there is no proof here that we are Michael, there is no proof here that Troy is not accessing some part of his own brain in a creative way that is simply misunderstood. Allowing that unknown factor to be a part of the process is bringing Spirit into the arena of your life. Being distracted with the proof of the experience may have made you miss out on all of the information that we shared here. Looking for the supernatural in this... if you would like us to make the pictures dance on the wall so that the rest of the information is valid, then you have lost Spirit, you have lost your openness to other avenues of information and source. So that is why we have pointed out the supernatural as a default for a lot of the older souls in particular. Because as you grow older and you start to ponder, and truly begin to embrace the idea of having a soul, in a more tangible way than in many of your other lifetimes, then it becomes a conundrum to say " I have accepted that I have a soul, now where is it?" And having contact with us in this way can help bring about the symptoms and the insight and the information that can help you towards that reality, but Spirit will never be able to truly prove itself to you. We will be able to prove to you our existence, for example, when we see you after this life and all of us "wave" at you. GROUP: (laughing) We'll wave right back. UNKNOWN: I have a question about seeing each other after this life. Do we actually get to a level where Michael will be moving on from the causal or another plane, and we have so many other journeys to make, so do we eventually meet up? MICHAEL: Oh, yes. UNKNOWN: Eons from now? MICHAEL: It won't be eons once you are outside of the physical plane because the concept of time takes on a completely different experience and dimension. It's very difficult to convey, but in your linear time it might be quite a while, but outside of this plane it's not quite the same. And as far as your "in between" lives, for instance, we have met with several of you in order to have this group, in general. Not all of you, but a lot of you in this room are here because of agreements that we talked to you about before this life. And it [our having contact with Michael between lives] could be likened to various continents on the same planet, so that there is always communication, and there is the ability to interact, albeit in some ways limited to a certain degree, but none of us are separate, none of us are divided. And eventually, yes, your entity, your cadre, your energy ring, will exponentially grow and learn and do whatever it wants to do in these other planes, and we don't want to use this phrase, but it's appropriate in terms of Time, will "catch up" with us, and merge in a way that, at this point, is a little incomprehensible while divided. UNKNOWN: I have another question. When this happens, do we go on to incarnate in other planets, or other realms? Or once we reach that causal plane and passed that in our own cadre/entity group, do we stop incarnating? MICHAEL: There will be at least two more incarnations for your entity, or your cadre, because you only have, while individuals, the five soul ages, while incarnating on your own... Infant through Old. Infant, Baby, Young, Mature, and Old. But there is still Transcendental and Infinite, and each of you, as an entity, will incarnate one more time somewhere, in some parallel, in some version of your world, to be a part of that experience. That way one fragment will incarnate to represent the experience of the entity as we have described for such people as Gandhi and Socrates being Transcendental. Christ and Buddha, for instance, being popular Infinite soul representations. So there will still be, at least, those two additional incarnations, and most often it will be within the planetary system where most of the rest of the population is still incarnate. UNKNOWN: The planetary system being earth? MICHAEL: Yes. But by the time you are reunited to a point of incarnating as Transcendental or Infinite souls, who knows where your people will be. GLENN: What are Michael's plans for the future? MICHAEL: We have our own relationship to what you could describe as an Entity Twin rather than Essence Twin. Part of our "future" is the merging with our Entity Twin. This twinning is a matter of mathematics and resonance. Within a cadre, for instance, and this is not by any means a constant, if two entities have a predominance of essence twins shared between those two entities, they are Entity Twins. And so, every entity has its own twin, in the same way that almost every essence has its own essence twin. And so, if we were to describe our "future," it's the process of integrating with our Entity Twin and we are working on that. UNKNOWN: Is it exciting? MICHAEL: That would be a matter of interpretation. It is a unique experience. [QUESTION INAUDIBLE, but possibly, "Will you incarnate as a Transcendental Soul and will we be around to experience that?"] MICHAEL: You will be long gone. And that is not a prediction, it is just a matter of looking at the patterns that appear to be in place, or the momentum. But we may incarnate, and we have done so already in a few parallels, incarnated as Transcendental. So it is not a new possibility. We don't really have to do it again in this particular parallel, because we have our channels where we teach in a different way. And in several of our parallels we are working in this same way. But, yes, in some parallels we have already incarnated as Transcendental souls. UNKNOWN: Nobody we'd know, huh? MICHAEL: It's a completely different parallel. [meaning, we wouldn't know the person, because they don't exist "here."] GLENN: I heard there are a couple of issues on what may happen with the next Infinite Soul, including a different Michael channel saying "look at all the trouble Jesus caused when he showed up." And that a soul might incarnate in multiple fragments in various places. So I'd like to hear your insights on all this. MICHAEL: IF the infinite soul manifests, and we've seen it come close a few times, and it usually will incarnate only as a matter of bringing Logos to bear, (which just translates into "helping get everybody back on the same page, to help get everybody moving in a similar shared direction,") but ironically, with the anticipation of the manifestation of the Infinite Soul coming, and having so many fragments being born to be a part of that, many of them very wise and very capable to contribute to humanity even while having a great handful of people causing what you would deem "trouble," has actually helped to bring humanity, people, sentients, back down into a similar perspective, a moving forward together. If you look at the arc of time from approximately the '60s to now, progressively, the world is getting smaller and that awareness in itself is similar to the impact that the Infinite Soul would have brought with the concepts of global village, "green" living; a more responsible dominion with life rather than a dominance over it.... so now all of the fragments who are incarnated are doing just that, so it doesn't require an Infinite Soul intervention, which is basically what an Infinite Soul experience is: a form of intervention for a sentient species. At this point it is looking like humanity is going to right itself in a way that will provide sanctuary for the life that is here currently, and also to help keep humanity, or the human bodies, available for incarnation. We will, however, validate that what we have seen of the next manifestation of the Infinite Soul is looking to show up in five different places because of the population. The amount of people on the planet is different from in the past, and having a representative in different places in the world, all represented by a similar theme of being a minority and represented as a child, a woman, a homosexual... we're not sure what the other two may have been, but the Infinite Soul representatives were what would be deemed a minority, a representative of the minority, and would help bring about the drastic changes that might have been needed. But we don't see that as being so necessary at this point. So, currently, it is a floating possibility. Does this answer your question? GLENN: yes MICHAEL: As humanity, or as a dominant sentient species, grows in maturity, then the forces at work that help sustain environment, that help sustain the life on the planet, (which we regard as devas, or devic energy), those devic energies begin to withdraw to a point where the dominant sentience is then responsible for caring for those life forms on the planet that have cared for by them up to that point. It is a process of any sentient species to gain that responsibility for the planet, for animals, for others, and this is why you are seeing so much upheaval in the environment, because the devic energies are not there to help correct it. There are not these "magical forces" to pick up the slack or repair the damages that the sentient species causes, and so this experience for sentience is very similar to a person over the growth of one lifetime, where a teenage child or rather a young adult, has to, at some point, learn to live on his own, and create his environment with some sense of responsibility. And so that is the case with a collective sentient species as well, on any planet. UNKNOWN: There are a lot of people on the planet who .... have really been trying to reconnect with these elementals and undo the damage that has happened. It was getting exciting and really tapping into that. Do you think we will really start reconnecting with the energies that are pulling out? MICHAEL: It's not a bad thing that they are "pulling out." What you are describing is parts of humanity finding themselves going where certain parts of the population recognizes the intimacy with these forces that will continue to remain in place, because there always will be some of amount of these forces, devas; it's just not of such an abundance that it takes up slack, or heals the impact from humans. So when these fragments are making an effort to reconnect, to communicate, to manage this network of devic energies, that is exactly where we would think your species would go. It's just that it becomes a more intimate and validated form of helping the environment and humanity itself. Do you understand? So it's not that devic energies are leaving because they are in a huff over humanity, but that it is just simply the way that it works when a planet houses a sentient species; there is simply no more room for new souls to be incarnated, and to have the Infant soul lifetimes that are so important to the beginning process of your grand cycle. And for those "new souls" that are here and shifting into bringing sentience to species such as Gorillas, you will find that the awareness of devic energy that is required for your own personal growth on the planet expands to include the possibility that dolphins and whales and gorillas have a similar concept of "soul." The only way that the Gorilla population will be able to continue in its exploration of housing souls is if humanity expands its awareness to consider these subtle energies in nature. To have a lot of species suddenly take sentience might not be easy to do. For instance, Elephants were up for consideration, but it's simply not a possibility that we can see because of many factors. The reason that we bring up the drop in devic energy is because as devic energies are participating in the various kingdoms, the mineral, the plant, the animal, they are exploring the possibilities of sentience within a planet, and as those possibilities diminish, so does their interest in the planet, and they move on to others. LU: Michael I have a question about machines, do machines or electronics have a specific energy? MICHAEL: Yes, eventually they can start to become of high interest to certain energies that you could describe as devic, yes. LU: Does that mean we can begin to communicate with them in some way? Can we as humans communicate with machines and electronics? MICHAEL: In what way are you speaking? LU: I find that when I have printer problems at work, I often ask the equipment what it needs or what it wants, open all the ports and doors and look around and try to communicate to see what has happened. MICHAEL: That is not quite the same thing as devic energies, no. That is just an intuitive process for solving problems. And it is an effective one, because when you are doing it from that angle you are not limiting your insights, you're not limiting your perspective, but you are inviting other perspectives, and this means opening up to Spirit, opening up to other sources that may be of help to you. Whether those are your guides or other spirits who happen to be in the room and helping point you in the right direction of a solution, we don't know, but as far as that printer housing devic energies, we wouldn't say that is necessarily true. We can say that the higher the intelligence of some processors, the more interesting it becomes to some versions of devic energy to explore those. LU: Do some high level CPUs and processors have sort of a hive soul? MICHAEL: Not on this planet, no. CHERYL: I have often wondered about the internet being... Well, I used to joke that God had an internet account because of so many coincidences, or our meeting certain people. Do non-physical energies have any influence over it [the internet], or is it just random when people come together, such as us through a medium such as the internet? Is it somehow directed? MICHAEL: We have talked about this before that there is a theory that is not quite accurate that says that you use ten percent of your brain, and that there is all of this other processing that is unused. And we have responded to say that that is not true, but that in this case, we could say that ninety percent of your brain is generating the reality that you are experiencing, is being used to generate the reality that you keep in place to organize and communicate and work with all of the things that you don't have to deal with in your daily perception. As a species grows, some of these concepts [floating in the reality-generating part of the brain] that are metaphysical or nonphysical come into being and they become tangible objects [through invention, or creation]. They become real life, useful tools such as the telephone [representing clairaudience], such as television [representing clairvision]. The concept of the Astral Plane is not unfamiliar to any of you because all of you have died and reincarnated, died and reincarnated, so you "know" the Astral Plane is there, at least that "ninety percent" of your brain does, and so somebody got the idea to create a network that mimicked or represented the Astral Plane. And so the internet is the physical idea of the Astral Plane made form, or at least into the limited idea of the Astral Plane at this point. The Internet relates to the dream state, to the astral plane, and to emotional and intellectual realms that are not necessarily within reach of your daily life, but the Internet allows that to come into your space in the same way that, when you are on the astral plane, it's always at your fingertips, as well. Except you don't have fingertips there. (laughter) So in answer to your question, no it [meeting people through the Internet] is not always random as there is very little true randomness in the Universe, but it does give you a tangible method of using the intangible parts of your brain to connect to other people around the world. And with that, we will wrap it up. Goodbye.
  7. OMW - Oct 20, 2012 - How To Use Your Energy Troy Tolley, Channel [MEntity] First, we will define "Energy" here as the force that is vitality, which allows for systems to work. [MEntity] One may find that we use the term "beauty" and "energy" and even "oneness" interchangeably when discussing the three building blocks of any universe: Truth, Love, Energy. [MEntity] That is because each of these terms refer to that force of vitality that enables the functioning of a system. [MEntity] Energy is a Universal Truth. It exists in a multitude of forms, both seen and unseen, tangible and intangible, quantifiable, and amorphous. [MEntity] Where there is a system at work, there is Energy. [MEntity] Where there is Energy, there is a system at work. [MEntity] We will define "system" here as those parts that work to generate the whole. [MEntity] Tao, or "God," cannot exist without Energy, then, because it will always be made up of parts that generate that wholeness that is itself. [MEntity] Oneness is used interchangeably, because there is nothing that is truly whole without comprehending its resonant parts. [MEntity] Comprehending the interdependence of the parts is vital for that wholeness to be sustained. Otherwise, the illusion of fragmentation is consuming. [MEntity] A good example is the functioning of any Physical body. It is a system. It is made of parts. Parts that are interdependent, resonant, interacting, generating the whole of the body as one. [MEntity] The health of a body is much more easily sustained when this is understood, truly comprehended. [MEntity] What I EAT affects me. [MEntity] What I DRINK affects me. [MEntity] What I INHALE affects me. [MEntity] Eventually, the temporary high, temporary stimulation, temporary relief comes to be replaced with holistic awareness that comprehends the wholeness that is the body. [MEntity] When we mentioned "temporary," we mean those things that are clearly not beneficial for the body, but are ingested for the stimulation, high, or relief. [MEntity] This is not a concern when the body is in a fair state of health, but must be considered if the body is falling ill. [MEntity] This is another arena for the dance of choice, of course. [MEntity] But it is a fair comparison to any other system that is fueled by Energy. [MEntity] This would extend into the Emotional, Intellectual, and "spiritual" bodies, as well. [MEntity] On Macro and Micro levels, this is an absolute truth. DISCUSSION [MEntity] Before we move on into more detail, we will pause for questions about what we have shared, so far, if there are any. [Bobby] How does the Energy side of an Entity play into this? [MEntity] While there is no "side" to an entity, and while each Essence has all three "sides" as part of their dynamic, there are those within the entity who emphasize one over others for the sake of a dynamic structure. [MEntity] For those who emphasize Energy, their Essences (not necessarily their Personalities) help sustain the vitality for the functioning of the Entity. [MEntity] They would tend to keep the Entity "alive," and would tend to have lifetimes, or themes across lifetimes, geared toward the practice of waking up, and then the waking up of other Entity members. [MEntity] That path to waking up, and staying awake, may tend to be wrought with chaos, as Energy is both chaos and order, with chaos being the default entrance toward the path of waking up. [MEntity] For those on the "energy side," there may tend to be, in the Old Soul Age, a fine line between chaos and beauty (perceived order). [MEntity] However, this could be said of any fragment, and every fragment will have this as part of their own path toward wakefulness, consciousness, but for those with an emphasis on Truth or Love, then they would have their chaos move into beauty through their relative emphasis. [MEntity] For instance, Beauty and wakefulness comes to the lives of those with an emphasis on Truth by working through the spectrum of Truth. [MEntity] When that person rejects the truth, or is in the earlier stages of exploring truth, chaos may be a part of the dynamic. [MEntity] And the same for those who emphasize Love. [MEntity] Does this help explore your question. [MEntity] Are there any others? [GeraldineB] I'm confused about something [Bobby] Yes, thank you! [GeraldineB] Parsing what you said, it "sounds" as though Essence and/or Entities (through Entity Members aka Essences) need to be wakened [GeraldineB] I thought Personality was what needed awakening [MEntity] Correct. But the evolution of Essence, and thereby, the Entity, evolves based upon the rising capacity for consciousness while incarnated. [GeraldineB] ok -- thank you -- so they're not "extremely advanced" to us, their Fragments [Maureen] Sleeping Beauty :) [MEntity] In addition to this, no Essence is a completed state of awareness. It evolves into greater states of "wakefulness" that are relative to its own journey. [MEntity] If that were not the case, it would make Grand Cycles, and incarnation, a kind of soul masturbation. That would not be a "bad thing," but a fairly useless point for such vastness as Tao and the universe. [GeraldineB] I think that has been one of the issues I've been hung up on [GeraldineB] thank you [MEntity] An aside: [MEntity] The passage through the Soul Ages is always relative to the level of consciousness brought to the Grand Cycle, and then continues to build upon that through the experiences gained through the Planes of that Grand Cycle, relative to the species of incarnation. [MEntity] Those who have had 3 Grand Cycles will bring a different degree of capacity to their Grand Cycle as compared to that of one who might have 17. [Maureen] Thanks Michael -- I have wondered about that [MEntity] Returning to the subject now. [MEntity] But that was not a digression, as it is insight into how the Energy of one's Grand Cycle works [MEntity] This is the same for the individual lifetime, as well. [MEntity] Over the Soul Ages, both the Essence, and the awakened Personalities, will tend toward refining the use of Energy in evermore productive and relevant ways. [MEntity] This is seen in even more microcosmic scales when looking at how any individual life tends to use Energy over the course of growing up. [Maureen] Would you give us an example Michael? [MEntity] In both the Infant Soul Age, and as a literal infant, there is chaos as the force of Energy. That chaos is vital, is vitality. It is necessary for reasons we will share in a moment. [MEntity] As the body grows, so does the organization and movement of that Energy. [MEntity] As the soul ages, the same can be said. [MEntity] The reason for this movement through chaos, first, is because the Mass of an object IS its Energy. The Mass of any Essence is vast. It is transforming a minute portion of its Mass into the Energy that becomes the force and fuel of Personality. [MEntity] This could be said of any birthing into the Physical Plane. It is rarely without chaos in some form. [MEntity] That form is held in place only through the vitality of Essence, its Energy. [MEntity] In other systems, or species, those forms are held in place by their relative fields of consciousness that have formed them. [MEntity] Every form of any sort that can be quantified, even if in ways that would seem extremely abstract and intangible to you, such as the concept of Essence, is held in form by the "higher" field of consciousness behind it. [MEntity] So the form of Essence is even "held together" by the fact of its "birthing" from Tao. [MEntity] However, regardless of the form and the force that generates and sustains that form, there is potential Energy that is generated from the chaos. [MEntity] And this is harvested, if you will, in the form of growth, experience, comprehension, and waking up, which then becomes the force that sustains the whole. [MEntity] Imagine, then, every lifetime being much like a coiled spring. [MEntity] Every Grand Cycle, an even greater launch of force. [MEntity] The more Grand Cycles, the greater the Soul Age, the more quickly that spring is sprung, if you will. [MEntity] For most Old Souls, this is known. Their "spring was sprung" quite early, or in other words, the self-consciousness and self-awareness came quite early in the life. [MEntity] The earlier this comes, the more is harvested from the life in terms of experiences, growth, comprehension, and wakefulness. [MEntity] Because Energy cannot be destroyed, "you" will never die. [MEntity] The you that you know will never be left behind, absorbed, discarded. [MEntity] In much the same way that not a single one of your comprehended experiences will be lost to you, neither are you ever lost to Essence or Entity. [MEntity] Not a single experience is lost to Essence, regardless of your comprehension, but when the Personalty comprehends within the lifetime, it is never lost to that Personality. [MEntity] Because no lifetime is birthed without profound comprehension, then no lifetime is ever lost to Essence. [MEntity] In the same way that Essence evolves because of the potential unleashed in the lifetime that results in experiences, so do you evolve in Personality (toward the Positive Poles) as you use the power of Choice. [MEntity] Choice, then, is your individual key to all of the potential vitality that you carry as a Personality. [MEntity] This is not counting the potential already moving through the life because of Essence, but that which is unleashed by you, and harvested by you. [MEntity] As you are your own system of Overleaves, of working parts that generate a whole. [MEntity] This is not a matter of "the right choice," or "better choices," or a "bad choice," but the process of owning all of them, whether in retrospect, now, or as the impact of a previous choice comes to light in the future. [MEntity] Owning your choice is wakefulness. It is not guilt. It is not shame. It is not defense. It is not smugness. It is not dismissive. [MEntity] The owning of choice is simply recognizing the capacity for choice, even as you are bombarded by, benefited by, or harmed by the impact from the choices of others. [MEntity] We realize we are speaking quite metaphorically, but we think it is helpful. We will pause for questions before continuing. [Janet] Michael I am having trouble wrapping my head around all this but it is becoming clearer so I will wait to see where this goes. [MEntity] We will continue: [MEntity] Continuing with the spring as metaphor, the Internal Monads describe how far one's spring has sprung, how much potential has been released and is being built upon. The Soul Ages and Levels could be said to be simiar, but on the scale of Essence. [MEntity] The more consciously one is making Choices, the more smoothly that Energy continues to spring from the life. [MEntity] Or rather, from Essence. [MEntity] The more consciously one is making choices, the more potential is being converted into experiences, comprehension, waking, etc. that then sustain and expand both Essence and Personality. [MEntity] In terms of Essence, the use and management of Energy can tend to be relative to Frequency and Energy Ratio. The higher the Creative/Female Ratio, and Frequency, the greater the explosion of potential unleashed in a lifetime. The lower the Frequency, and the higher the Focused/Male Ratio, the more paced, measured, and steady the release of potential. [MEntity] The former often have lives and Personalities that are scattered in multiple directions, contexts, and foci to help disperse the impact of that explosion, so to speak. [MEntity] The latter tends to an ebb and flow, release and contracting, of energy that shows up in a multitude of ways over the lifetime. [MEntity] Ironically, the more consciously one is of Manifesting Essence, the more likely these reflections. [MEntity] If one has a lower Frequency, but a higher Creative Ratio, it would tend to show up as an effort to control or deflect the chaos more so than one who would have a higher Frequency. [MEntity] If one has a higher Frequency, and a higher Focused/Male Ratio, it would tend to show up as an emphasis on wringing the experience out of even the seemingly most insignificant of events and experiences. [MEntity] These are highly simplistic descriptions, and subject to variations because of other factors, but are fair enough. [MEntity] This combination between Frequency and Energy Ratio could best be understood here as the combination between the "rate of comprehension" to "path of navigation." [MEntity] Rate of comprehension is not describing intelligence, but quite specifically the preferred rate of comprehension. It is fair to say it is a spectrum from Ordinal to Cardinal, in that the lower Frequencies prefer a more Ordinal process. [MEntity] In terms of Personality, the same could be said of the distribution of Overleaves as they fall on the Axes. [MEntity] The more Ordinal the Overleaves, the more effort there is to manage the flow of Energy in the life. The more Exalted the Overleaves, the more likely this is not a concern. [MEntity] This is not to say that the Personality might choose differently from its design, especially when considering cultural and familial imprinting. [MEntity] In terms of the whole Personality, the Goal carries the greatest weight as influence in that overall management of Energy, then. The negative pole Goal would tend toward a more chaotic version of that Goal than that of the positive pole. [MEntity] In terms of relationships and relating, the Mode would carry the most weight. This might mean that if your Mode is exalted, your relationships may have much more explosive momentum than one who may have an ordinal Mode. [MEntity] In terms of social perspective and personal philosophy, the more effort to manage and control these might come from weight of the ordinal Attitudes. [MEntity] The more one is in the Positive Poles, the more flexible and fluid the flow of Energy because that flow would be allowed to be relative to the parts, the contexts, the necessities and design of those parts. [MEntity] The more one is in the Negative Poles, the more one would tend to alter the flow of Energy for the sake of constriction or force, based on defenses, fear, protection, etc. [MEntity] *alter the natural flow of Energy as described by the design of Personality.... DISCUSSION [MEntity] Before we continue, we know that this is a lot of information to combine and assess in one exchange, but we ask if there are any of you who find validity, or lack of validity, to these more immediate factors of Personality as they relate to your experience of vitality. [Diane_HB] Yes, I find that it fits. [Maureen] I can see how it fits as well Michael [AnnH] yes, it makes sense (in a broad way) [Janet] I see how it fits me. [Janet] Except that your description of how explosive my potential can be [MEntity] Ann, the broader context is always helpful for then applying the more immediate uses of the information in more meaningful ways. [Janet] But I'm working on it. [MEntity] Janet, By "high," we would mean 65 or higher in terms of Energy Ratio, and 75 or higher in Frequency. [Janet] Yes. I have 83 frequency and 59 creative. [MEntity] Keep in mind that the use of the word Potential here is not meant in terms of one's expectations of the self. [Janet] Agreed. [MEntity] It is in terms of accessing vitality. [MEntity] What you do with that is up to you. And that is where Choice comes into play. [GeraldineB] it doesn't help that one of the euphemisms for being "very energetic and healthy" is vitality in much of our advertising [GeraldineB] and I get a much more neutral feeling about it from you, MIchael [MEntity] Yes. That would be correct. Vitality is as calm or as "energetic" as one sees fit. A person in quiet meditation, or enjoying a day resting on the beach, or watching children play, or reading a book is just as easily accessing their vitality as one who is playing volley ball, exercising, or dancing. [MEntity] The appearance of vitality tends to be relative to one's Centering. APPLICATIONS AND USES [MEntity] To continue into the more immediate applications and uses of this information: [MEntity] One: it will always be helpful to remember that the potential and vitality of Essence will be managed by Essence, whether you are Manifesting Essence, or not. [MEntity] Two: it will always be helpful to remember that your immediate access to vitality, to the flow of energy that is your life force, regardless of circumstances, is your capacity for Choice, and the owning of that process. [MEntity] Three: it will always be helpful to remember that you cannot destroy Energy, and that everything you consciously choose is a process of conversion of You (mass) into Experience (energy). [MEntity] Every choice is a release of potential, a further expansion of the spring that is the force of vitality from Essence. [MEntity] Four: the health of your bodies is affected by your choices, and is a great form of feedback for the impact of many of your choices, but your health is not always the result of your choices. Scathing is a part of the package of the Physical Plane, as is "death." No choice can keep either from happening. [MEntity] Your choices from within any scathing, or in the face of any death, be it yours or someone else's, or loss of any sort, is what matters. [MEntity] Access to Vitality is not altered or hindered by anything other than choice. [MEntity] Vitality is most easily understood, in terms of accessibility and application when making choices, as Trust. [MEntity] When you trust yourself, you are Vitality. That is why the volley of a ball, or the reading of a book, can be equal in vitality, because of the trust. [MEntity] That is why the pain in harm, or the pleasure in healing, can both be filled with Vitality, when there is trust, a knowing. [MEntity] Finally, to get used to the idea and practice of allowing the flow of Energy in your life, and accessing Vitality and trust in your choices, we suggest playing with each day as if it is an incarnation. You are the Essence of the day, and the day is your Personality. [MEntity] You may not have control over the Personality/day, but the force of your choices contributing to the day, make a difference. [MEntity] That is Vitality. [MEntity] That is a force of life. [MEntity] Letting yourself move that Energy in ways that are natural to you, based on your Overleaves, can help you, then, to let that vitality show up however is best, not for however it looks best. DISCUSSION [MEntity] We will take any questions now. [MEntity] Or comments. [Janet] I like the idea of treating a day as an incarnation. I'm going to try that. [GeraldineB] Yes, I'm going to set that one up as a discussion on TLE [Janet] Michael, this material requires reflection before I can even begin to formulate a question. [MEntity] That is a quick path to the self-awareness for how you use the energy of your day. [MEntity] We understand, Janet. We will, also, state that this is, as usual, only a part of what we would have to say on the subject. [Diane_HB] I can validate a lot of it, and I think I manage my energy fairly efficiently for the most part. [Maureen] I take it that my being revved up from 55 Frequency to 75 Frequency not "natural" for me. Am I not manifesting Essence when I am not inhabiting my natural Frequency? I guess this may apply to others as well. [GeraldineB] wouldn't that still be a matter of conscious choice? [MEntity] Maureen, the use of the range of Frequency is not a hindrance to the Manifestation of Essence. You could use 35 to 75. [MEntity] Sustaining at one extreme or the other is not easy on the Personality, but it is not a factor in Manifesting Essence. [Maureen] that's good then! :) [MEntity] We will continue this discussion with our students. We will conclude here for today, then.
  8. ENERGY REPORT September 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) SEPTEMBER seems to help bring a balance to the extremes that have come this year with the Attitude of REALIST. This “season” of the Realist has been a rather rough one for most of our students. As you pass through September, try to keep in mind that the balanced Realist the ability to function in objective perspective even while subjectively experiencing. The Positive Pole of Objectivity includes your Subjectivity; it does not exclude your experience. The extremes that have been experienced by many of our students has been in the Subjectivity, which can show up as either overwhelming submersion into experience, or numbing, paralyzing distancing from one’s experiences. Many of you moved into the emphasis of this year’s Realist Attitude through the Negative Pole of Subjectivity, and may now begin to feel the Positive Pole come around. Objectivity helps to bring a better picture of experiences, but still allows for the experiences that are part of that picture. As September continues, many of you will likely begin to focus on one or two quite specific areas or experiences with which to bring some Objectivity to your Subjectivity, helping bring some clarity, relief, and expansion to your perception. Overall, September could be described as a wave of tentative relief and a chance to take a deep breath so that you may take a fresh look at events and experiences. In the last week of September, many of you will begin to take on the wave of Chief Features for this year. Considering this year’s Chief Feature is Impatience, we would not doubt that many of you are already tapping into this as early as September 6th. DATES OF INTEREST Sep 06 - 09 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Hyper Scattered - a sharp dip into creative energy may find several students feeling itchy, restless, agitated, and even literally shakey. With the hyper focus of male energy over the past month or so, this wave of scattered energy may come as a surprise, bringing with it clumsiness, anxiousness, eagerness, distraction, and irritability. We suggest that you harness this energy so that you may process it creatively and with benefit, otherwise, you may find yourself with outbursts and tingling, electrical-like short-circuiting throughout the body in ways that make it difficult to feel as if you are getting anything done or seeing clearly. So while relief may come this month for the weight of the Realist perspective, that lift of pressure may bring with it the energy that was held in as a way to stay focused and in control over the past few months. Either way, whether in bursts of reaction and agitation, or in bursts of creativity and imagination, that energy will burn off and level out. NEXUS - No Nexus in September HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER SEPTEMBER: CREATIVITY AND CHAOS ARE SISTERS - As you move through September, you may begin to feel this surge of creativity and/or chaos begin to take more of your attention in your days. It is up to you whether this is creativity or chaos. To help you harness this energy into creativity, we can suggest that you get out, walk, move, dance, exercise. This brings grounding and order to the chaos that is at the heart of creativity. If you feel chaos is at the center of your experience, then you can help alter this by using your creativity.
  9. ENERGY REPORT September 2015 2015 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Scholar (emphasized all year) CENTER: H. Moving (default to Moving) (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Stoic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Stubbornness/Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) SEPTEMBER brings with it a close to the Stoic Attitude and another round of freeing up the Higher Moving Energy that will likely show up in a range between Dissonance and Resonance, Chaos and Beauty. These qualities would likely show up within and around our students, not just in one place or another. Many of our students have had a more difficult time moving through the emphasis of energy of the Stoic Attitude, so the experience of Resignation (the negative pole) may start to become heavy, and begin to crack and release the Higher Moving Energy in startling ways that are working to clear the perception of Resignation. However, because it is a rise from the Negative Pole, it may not look or feel pretty as you free that energy. It may be experienced as a low rumble that carries with it the weight and implications of Resignation, or it may burst forth unexpectedly and in disturbing ways. In either case, it is an indication that you have fallen into Resignation, which is a defense against Chaos, a defense against not being able to see clearly, and is a false form of calm. As your Resignation begins to break down, either in bursts or in more controlled release of pressure, it may take you a while to collect yourself, clear the air, and return to Tranquility. Tranquility is confident serenity, and the capacity to adapt and adjust perceptions as a means to remain calm, truly calm, as a means to see clearly. The higher patterns may not be clear, but the more immediate patterns are addressed and navigated as a vital part of helping contribute to the higher patterns. As your own Higher Moving Energy comes out as controlled or unleashed Chaos to clear up Resignation, it is clearing a path to Beauty and Tranquility, to Resonance and calm, and because it is still a Moving Center, it will require effort. It will not happen on its own. The force will not carry you. You must make the effort to take the reigns of your energy and perceptions back into your own hands. This same energy can be seen in the world around you as controlled or unleashed chaos breaks through from the various large pockets of defeat from resignation and the work of clearing paths to resonance, beauty, and calm continues. For some areas of the world, or in some groups of population, or by some fragments in power where there is a refusal to rise beyond the negative poles, this will likely come out as a means to impose and enforce resignation upon others. Imposed resignation rarely goes well, and even for those who have moved into Tranquility, the pain of this will likely be obvious in the world. Tranquility will be difficult to sustain, and the sense of resonance very difficult to feel with “the world,” but keep in mind that Tranquility, Resonance, and Beauty, do not equate magical solutions, do not equate easy or guaranteed happiness. In fact, as is true of all positive poles, Tranquility and Beauty means allowing room for the chaos and the ugly. It does not go away just because you know there is more than that. It does not get solved by higher or clearer perceptions. The positive poles here only mean that you now own your power of choice, your power of navigation, your power of actions, reactions, and perceptions, and you do what you can, when you can, and how you can, and you know when you cannot. STUBBORNNESS and GREED make an early entrance of emphasis this year, as well, bringing into September a launch into even greater actions reflecting the fear of Change and Not Having Enough. For our students, we can only suggest that you monitor yourself and each other in loving ways that help you to notice if you are resisting or rejecting change, and/or if you are acting out in ways that express your sense of lack and unfulfilled needs. For most older souls, Stubbornness does not show up in the more obvious ways that resist change, but in ways that are far subtler. The older soul navigating Stubbornness will reflect this by being entrenched in the past, entrenched in personal experience, and in ways that refuse to grow beyond what he or she has deemed true about the self, about another, or about the world. They feel their experience trumps the experience of others, and speak in conclusive ways. Another way that the older soul navigates Stubbornness is by rejecting or condemning any challenge or interruption to their idea of peace, condemns or rejects any turbulence or difficulty, and finds it difficult to function amid sudden changes, chaotic differences, and discomfort of any kind. The older soul in Stubbornness will tend to presume that sustained comfort is the only answer or path, and that any challenge to that sustained comfort is a threat. For most older souls, Greed does not show up in the more obvious ways that are about lack in material ways, though it can show up that way, but it most often shows up in ways that are far subtler. Regardless of Soul Age, Greed is a fear of lack, or not having enough, and it becomes fixated on that lack. For most older souls, that lack tends to be in more emotional and intellectual realms, such as intimacy, intelligence, relationships, socializing, real communication, kindness, understanding, patience, etc. This means the older soul becomes fixated on whatever that lack is and loses all capacity to see or feel beyond that lack, and this prompts desperation, overreaction, high sensitivity, defense, entitlement and passive or active demand to have that lack satisfied, or at the very least, acknowledged. As Stubbornness and Greed creep into emphasis among our students, it will be important to consider your rigid reactions, your entrenchment in your past and your conclusive truths, and your sense of entitlement and expectations of others to make up for your lack. These Chief Features are rare in the Overleaves of our students, but they are ancient to you in the use of them across lifetimes and Personalities, so as these come up “in the air” of September through December, there may be an artful insidiousness that will require a close and compassionate eye. This same energy of Chief Features has moved into emphasis in the world, as well, but in the more classic and obvious ways. Stubbornness will show up as refusal to change, refusal to grow, refusal to be inconvenienced and bothered, while Greed will show up as panicked fears and defenses of resources, hoarding, closing off borders, villainizing those with whom one does not wish to share, etc. We will address these Chief Features more as they become further emphasized in October through December. DATES OF INTEREST: September 03 - 06 -- ENERGY SHIFT - WAKING UP - For many of our students, this energy shift may show up as a shaking off of sleep, of exhaustion, of vague weight and heavy energy, and a freeing up of the Higher Moving Energy that has more potential for Resonance. Dissonance is clarified as utterly unappealing, and efforts to nurture resonance and beauty may become the emphasis, and may be easier to do so. September 14 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - A merging of Parallels for many who have had parts of themselves exploring isolation, separation, and lack of intimacy and community. A shift in awareness and a heightened effort toward nurturing and sustaining common ground, intimacy, and resonance. This is not just in terms of our students, but a shift that relates to issues of immigration, borders, and equality, as well. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER SEPTEMBER: BEAUTY IS NOT ALWAYS PRETTY - Beauty is not inherently pretty, nor is there a standard for it. Beauty is a means of making sense of chaos, and this means that even chaos can be beautiful. That is the nature of Beauty. It includes the Chaos. It does not exclude it. It does not condemn it. CHAOS IS NOT ALWAYS UGLY - Chaos is not inherently ugly. It is a churning of energy, and shifting and changing, and a rearranging of energy, and while this can be difficult to navigate, it is not inherently ugly. The raging rapids of a river are no uglier or more beautiful than the stillness of a lake. They are connected, and both require different ways to navigate, but both have their value, benefit, and methods of movement. You cannot control the depths of stillness and you cannot control the rapids, but you can learn how to navigate these, and the rewards for both are beautiful.
