  1. Note from Janet: This was pulled from a ning forum as re-posted by Geraldine in 2009. Since the original material was obtained within days of the event, I have added it to the collection of 2001 transcripts. Since we are coming up on the 9/11 Anniversary, and I came across this "Reissue" of the World Trade Center Report -- I'm including it verbatim as posted on the group list. Its point of reference is Sept 11, 2004 with a reissue of the report written and posted on Sept 21, 2001. With the 3rd year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks coming up, and the Republican Convention looming, and with a rise in recent requests to dig out this original Q&A with Michael, I have decided to send out this report for discussion. Reading it again after all of this time is strange and comforting, and now I have plenty more questions I feel I can ask. Please offer discussion and feedback at your convenience! I am sending this in an email and as a Word Document. Part of the editing I did was add Footer Notes to help define or explain some of the more complicated terminology. Make sure you ask me if you need any clarification of this article. Have a great day! Love, Troy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MICHAEL ON 9/11 This channeling took place ten days after the WTC attack. No other channeling had been publicly offered by that time and I felt it was very important to gain a metaphysical perspective of the event as soon as possible (for my own sake, if for no other reason). Some grammatical editing has occurred since the original sharing. ORIGINAL LETTER: Hello all, This channeling is by no means complete or even that useful, but here is what I got so far. I felt the clarity of connection to Michael opening and took advantage of that, even though I have been deeply affected by physically seeing the event unfold, including seeing one of the towers collapse before my eyes. This channeling may conflict with other channel’s work, but I only ask that you use each piece offered by channels as parts of the same event as described in the dark. Maybe a whole picture could come from that. I am also embarrassed to say that I am in no way an historian and I do not feel comfortable going too far into historical information. I have no clue if "wenis" (what the hell kind of name is that??) or teti are real and part of that time frame (I can't do any internet research from here to validate the channeling), so I am putting this out there with a gamble. PLEASE be gentle, but I would also love any insights to be shared, or questions to be asked, if more information is wanted. Since I posed the question to Michael broadly (“Michael, please comment on this event”), they responded from multiple angles. I am sure some of you can come up with far better, more direct questions. I will do my best to be here and share I what I get. Love, Troy Ps. You are welcome to share this piece with other lists and include credits, of course. I want the right person to be scoffed at! Ha ha... 092101 Michael on the terrorist attack of 091101 MICHAEL: We doubt we will bring much solace to the reality of events that took place on September 11, 2001 in the United States, but we can provide what we are able to gather as the dynamics behind the event, what those dynamics might mean literally and symbolically, and where events may go from there. We have experienced our own tragedies and losses while we were extant and fragmented, feeling deep grief, loss, confusion, and pain over events that were relative to our own progress on Earth. We bring this up to remind you that we have not forgotten what it means to be in a body and a part of humanity. The fact that we are in a position to view events from a Causal perspective does not diminish the process that is part of being Physical. Life can be painful. We remember. We will begin with the dynamics behind this event: This event is one of tangled, yet elegantly-played out Karma between Cadres, Fragments, and Countries. There are symbolic properties to this event, but first we will address the various players as they are known at this time. We will describe them in terms of our system. The fragments involved in the collapse of the World Trade Center were nearly-entirely from the same Cadre. There were other fragments involved from outside of that single Cadre, but most who perished were from entities within Cadre 9, Energy Ring 7[*] . Cadre #9’s are always in the DISCIPLINE Position[†] within its own Energy Ring. Incidentally, nearly all fragments from Energy Ring 7 are involved in some way with the major political positions of the world of the current time. The Discipline Position is defined as the influence that heightens the awareness of the decision making process. People who are in the Discipline Position in your life do not “ride you”, so to speak, nor to they discipline you in the traditional sense of the word, forcing the fulfillment of plans. They simply help create or generate scenarios that bring awareness to the impact of decisions and choices. DISCIPLINE helps see the end results of decision making, often highlighting the far-reaching impact. Through any means available, the Discipline Position will focus on helping move others through procrastinations and distractions toward a more purposeful goal. DISCIPLINE always shows you the road of original intent and keeps you "awake". While this Cadre 9 is the Discipline Position within its own personal Energy Ring, it has also taken upon itself that same position symbolically for the world. Nearly all Cadre #9’s will feel a deep motivation to play their parts in their own Energy Rings as a Discipline theme and this motivation will be amplified by this event. Many fragments who are organizing actions for fund-raising, protests, and even further attacks in the shadow of this tragedy are from Cadre 9 of other Energy Rings. The Configurations[‡] on each jet liner were Septets[§], consisting of Cadence Mates[**] of various forms. For example, two groups of 5 have been brought to light and these are all Warrior Fragments within the same Cadences within their own Entities. These two groups of 5 are missing the other members of their Configuration/Cadence (2 fragments missing from each group). Another two groups of 4 were of varying Roles from within a single Cadre and from different Entities. The latter Cadence/Configuration consists of one Cadence/Configuration being the 33rd Fragment from each Entity within that Cadre; the other Cadence/Configuration consists of the 107th fragments of each Entity from within that Cadre. Each of these groups of 4 is missing 3 members each from the Cadence/Configuration. The missing fragments from each Septet appear to be discarnate. It is important to note that it just happens to be that the Septet Configurations are made up of actual Cadences. This is not always the case. A Septet can be made up of any fragments from anywhere, while a Cadence doesn’t necessarily create a Configuration. There were many other Septet Configurations involved that day, but they were diverted without much mention in the media. We are aware of at least 10 other hijackings that were diverted that morning, all unwittingly and/or specifically removed from the count for fear of a larger panic. We also believe the actual count of those who perished in the World Trade Center will be higher than the factual count. (Note: the number originally assumed dead turned out to be much lower in the end) The fragments on each jet liner who perished did so for their own “reasons”, of course. It may be obvious to many of our Students that this event in nearly all its manifestations was not a Karmic Balance, but rather a Karmic Creation. Those who perished in the Pentagon were most involved with the burning of Karmic Ribbons, but nearly all others involved were not. The Karmic Ribbons of those in the Pentagon and Philadelphia crashes were shared in various fashions between the hijackers, the passengers, the families connected, and occupants of the one building. We encourage you to “feel” the difference between the World Trade Center energy and the energy of the other two attacks. You may sense the difference then between Karmic Balance and Karmic Creation. The complexities of all the Ribbons created and/or burned is a topic unto itself and we would offer discussion of this angle if our students wish. The fragment who is the media’s focal point of responsibility behind this entire event is Osama bin Laden, a 5th Level Young King with Priest Casting, an Idealist in Observation Mode sliding to Perseverance, Moving Centered, Intellectual Part, with Chief Features of Stubbornness and Arrogance, with a discarnate Priest Essence Twin, and 3 Task Companions consisting of all Servers, Server Cast. He is from Energy Ring 5, Cadre 9, and Entity 6. This fragment, ironically, is acting primarily from his True Personality[††], completely true to his Soul Age and Level. Whether this is compatible with the rest of the world is not the consideration of a Young Soul. There are many atrocious fragments in history who were living from the Positive Poles of their Overleaves. The 5th Level of any Soul Age is entirely about creating Karma and pushing the boundaries of limitations that have been instilled from previous generations. The 5th Level in the Young Soul Cycle is going to push these boundaries and limitations within the playground of competition and physical effect. Though this fragment is enthralled in creating Karma, this event was inspired by a Karmic Ribbon shared between himself and the current President of the United States. We will address this in a moment. This King fragment truly believes his mission is guided by and supported by his god, and we would say it would be hard for him to think differently, considering the near-consistent successes and uncannily smooth implementation of his plans being fulfilled across time. He feels his god is on his side. Though his actions are corrupt in relation to the more loving paths that could be chosen, so are the many things that have led this fragment into the position in which he believes himself to be. Part of his motivation stems directly from actions and choices made by the collective choices of the U.S. as they affect his beliefs and country. This is not our stance of justification, merely a reminder that this situation has a larger dynamic than what is seen on the superficial level. This leads us to the crux of this Karmic situation: the culmination of a high-profile Karmic balance between the Late Baby Scholar fragment who is George Bush, Jr. and Late Young King Fragment known as Osama bin Laden. The Karma between them is a Major Ribbon seeking to be burned, though many more Karma will likely be created in the process, which is not unusual for the early Soul Ages. A side note: It may appear that the fragment who is now George Bush, Jr. would be a Warrior, or at least a Young or Mature Soul, but these deductions are based on outward characteristics that can be attributed to generic interpretations of our terminology. This Scholar does have strong Warrior imprinting and is Warrior-Cast, however. It may appear this Scholar is strategic, but the strategies are those of his strong Support Circle. This is not to say that the Scholar does not agree with or contribute to these strategies, but for the most part this fragment would be lost without that support and direction. It may also appear that this fragment is bent on eager Young Soul values or identifying Mature Soul equality and fairness, but these qualities are only a relaying of that which is being expressed through him of others’ ideals. Stripped of this strong circle of support, this fragment is terrified and confused as to what is going on beyond his personal world. The Karma between the King and the Scholar originated in Egypt, nearly 4000 years ago at the beginning of the 6th Dynasty. The King fragment, known then as Wenis, was murdered by those directly assigned by the Scholar fragment who was then known as Teti. Investigating this history (which appears to be accurately recorded) should shed light on this now-escalated Karmic event. The destruction of the icon of the World Trade Centers parallels a past bold erection of the Pyramid of Teti, which also collapsed in a pile of rubble, killing many. The memory and records of Wenis and all of his fine contributions to the kingdom led him to be equated with the god, Osiris. Those who “follow” Osama now are those who revered him as Wenis/Osiris then. Teti is obscured by history and found to be a minor, if not negligible, leader in history. That same Scholar intends to be “remembered this time”, despite the repeated fall of his “pyramids”. We remind you that this channel is not one of our stronger historians, but we do believe enough information has been conveyed that extrapolations can be made on your own. The symbolic archetype from this event is, of course, the dance of the ancient concepts of “Good Vs Evil”. This is where the Baby Scholar’s own contributions come in, creating a scenario of War against an Evil Enemy with a Twisted God. Ironically, with further education about the “Evil” being fought, most fragments extant and part of the Mature Soul consciousness shift will begin to empathize with the motivations behind the troubled, religious zeal of the turbulent lands where the “Evil” comes from. Another level of the symbolism of this event is in seeing this as playing out the continued global shift to Mature Soul Consciousness. Though Young and Baby Souls are the catalyst, their motivations nicely dove-tail with the larger picture of Soul Age transition on the planet. Nearly all fragments who perished in the Pentagon and in Philadelphia are in part of their normal process of review and after-death experiences. The members of the Cadre of fragments involved in the World Trade Center collapse are variously, in hundreds of Configurations, completing Tasks that are part of a larger picture. Each fragment will examine his or her Personality and most recent life as each fragment senses a completion of his or her Task after death. Most of the Configurations within the Cadre who “died” include fragments from other Cadres who are still extant, and the discarnate fragments are acting as Inspiration, Expression, Action or Assimilation influences within these groupings. The probabilities as they extend from this point are still volatile and precarious. War of some sort is nearly imminent, standing high in probability at 86%. How and where this will manifest is not clear. The probability of more terrorist attacks is quite high, as well, standing at 74%. We have said before, but will say again, that New York City has always had a high probability of chemical or biological weapons being unleashed on the city. Nearly 5 years ago we mentioned the probabilities would drop after 5 years; 2001 being the final year of that time frame, though now an even higher probability of manifesting is present (even if diverted). A biological attack would be quickly contained and have minor effects, but it is still high on the options for the terrorists local within the U.S. (note: as of August 2004, Michael says that the probability of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil is still high, around 70% probability, while the use of biological attacks in NYC have dropped to a 30% probability). One major terrorist plan of probability stands as the taking hostage of a small town (or various small towns) in the United States. Though the probability is fairly low at 48%, dropping from 67% 3 weeks ago, it is not shifting enough over these days for us to discount it. (note: as of August 2004, Michael states that the probability of small-town hijacking is at 48%) Small bombings and interruptions of communication and transportation will continue to be a primary means of attack, along with assassination attempts. (note: as of August 2004, Michael states that this probability is at 80%) (Probabilities are asked to Michael in terms of “will this happen again within 10 years?”) We do not share these probabilities as a means to express “doomsday mentality”, but rather to respond to the request and questions posed to us about this pivotal situation on your planet. Please remember that the long-term effects from this event and its shadows may have the world in a far more peaceful, tolerant, and humble state of mind and heart eventually. Though this violent type of growth for a population is not necessary, it is the choice of many to experience that drama, adventure, emotional embracing and turmoil, and the excitement of such a precarious shift. Those qualities are the hallmark of early Mature Soul paths, even if within the context of Young/Baby wars. Many Americans were “bored” on all levels, but now nearly all fragments are “awake”. We have not seen such a vast manifestation of Essence and True Soul Ages in the United States before. This will not last, of course, but the potential for general peace and transformation is high, currently. A final mention of probability will be that the Scholar will most likely be directly involved (even if discarnate) in the rebuilding of “his pyramid” in place of the World Trade Center. The buildings may literally take pyramidal shape or a similar architecture to the Eiffel Tower, in a set of two or four buildings. Q&A 1) Could Michael comment on the reactions people have had, of pulling together, and of suddenly feeling like we are one family? I know they said a bit, but if there is any elaboration on this that can be made, any comment on this sudden state of being "Awake", I think it would be interesting. MICHAEL: The primary reaction/response that most fragments have found as a result of the terrorists' attack was a temporary shift into one or more of the Higher Centers. We have said many times that stress, anguish, and trauma tend to be some of the few ways any fragment finds their way to the Higher Centers, except in the case of the Higher Moving Center, which is specifically designed to be accessible without much effort. For nearly 7 days following the events of September 11, most fragments were dealing with the effects of general, Higher Centered processing, mostly dealing with Truth (higher intellectual) and Love (higher emotional), and finding applicable ways to blend these realizations with Beauty/Energy (higher moving). It is not uncommon to have periods of time wherein the focus of a population may be from one of the Higher Centers, but it is rare that nearly an entire planet moves into one Higher Center, let alone all three. Tears are the biological reactions to Truth, and a great deal of Truth was revealed to many fragments in the wake of this disaster. Some realizations include: The "fragility" of life; unnecessary social facades; assumed isolations; the lack of Needs met within the life for self and for others; the importance of reaching out; the loss of Community over time; the forgotten importance of family and loved ones; mortality; Life Tasks and where you are in your life; Internal Monad processing; pointlessly-held anger and resentments toward self and others; who are the major Support Positions (primarily the Intimates, but all came under examination); that everything will change and nothing is permanent; what is important, in general, etc. The tears shed across the world after this disaster are personal and we only suggest the above phrases because they stand out to us, but there are many more Truths that are being examined. Every person had the opportunity to be free from their Chief Feature during those days, experiencing fully what their particular Chief Feature tends to create fear around. We remind you that your Chief Feature (fear aka “your protector”) is defined by a habitual, yet an unnecessary, protection against something NORMAL in life. In the 7 days following September 11, 2001, every individual had the opportunity to experience the very thing they struggle to protect themselves from habitually. For instance, Arrogance fears Vulnerability: those with this Chief Feature allowed themselves to fully experience Vulnerability without fear. Those who have Self-deprecation allowed themselves to experience Inadequacy (which leads to surrender). Experiencing a total sense of unknowing can free the Personality. Usually this kind of surrender is feared, but those 7 days allowed the Personality to accept that position in life, briefly, but without fear. Stubbornness usually fears Change, but as is obvious, the disaster would not allow a fragment with this fear to dismiss the reality that Change is imminent, constant, unpredictable, and sometimes sudden. Self-destruction fears Worthlessness, but there was a great amount of insight gained for several days, allowing those fragments to realize that what is normally seen as "worthless", including themselves, actually has high value in the context of a life that is lived while awake. Greed fears Lack, but those several days allowed one to realize how much one has, even if just for a moment in time. Impatience fears Time (more specifically, losing control of Time), but realized how very precious the Time has been that was actually spent (or how better to spend it). Martyrdom fears Space (more specifically, losing control of that space), but realized how good they have their life (or how good they could have it, with a slight attitude adjustment), even with the fragment's complaints, chaos or redundancy in the current life. On the whole, anything unnecessarily being carried in the Instinctive Center[‡‡] was released by most fragments. For those 7 days the Higher Intellectual Center of most fragments was highly-stimulated and examined, followed immediately by a stream of stimulation to the Higher Emotional, leading many to examine exactly what it is in the life that brings Pleasure and True Love, and how these can be appreciated, expressed, and given more appropriately. These realizations are now settling in with the Higher Moving Centered experiences of Oneness and camaraderie. Most of the world is experiencing itself for the first time as "One", even if pitted against a vaguely perceived enemy and even if not “on the same side”. Countries have felt this synchronization occasionally, but not the entire world. It is not random that people tend to describe some of the events since the attack as "moving", since this is the center related to feeling one with another. We remind you that although the entire world shifted into a Higher Centered perception, how that is experienced and expressed can differ greatly among continents, cultures and even neighborhoods. "Real life" is moving back into routine for most fragments now, and what was learned from the Higher Centers will either be dismissed or applied profoundly. Nevertheless, it will be long time before the experience is forgotten, if at all. When that many people are synchronized, nothing is ever the same after that. 2) What, if anything, can those of us who do feel our compassion and wider awareness awakened here do to bring some good to the situation? MICHAEL: As events unfold, the impact from these recent events will be proportional to how much resistance there is to the concepts of the Mature Soul. The Positive manifestation of Mature Soul energy might not be obvious as it shows up through what is normally interpreted as "corny" or "syrupy" or "sentimental" and even "weak" or "passive" but still sharing connection, empathy, and progress. The Negative manifestations of the Mature Soul concepts might show up in emotional devastations, submersion into “reality” broadcasts, massive events of deaths and disasters, and global or local tragedies that make the headlines more often. Older Souls may find themselves responding from distrust and typical cynicism, returning to the "old codger" way of living within a hermitted life, or they may choose to adapt a personal "lightness in their step" as they flow with their more spiritual and trusting nature. Mature Souls will respond dramatically no matter what happens, but this will either manifest insularly and protectively or through the need to reach out. Younger Souls (we include troubled Late-level Baby Souls) will be the most resistant and troublesome over the next 5 years or so, as everything that has been held dear in the established routine of standards changes drastically. Balanced Baby Souls will be turning to the Mature and Old Souls for direction and guidance, tuning their lives to the Mature Soul as their new Authority. We will comment for the Mature and Old Souls as to what might be able to be done to "bring some good to the situation": If you are a Mature Soul (or an Early Old Soul, Level One or Two), it would not be surprising to find yourself suddenly surrounded by Baby Souls seeking your life as a haven. Do not hesitate to share your spirituality, your concepts of life and how you live it, if you choose to take on that responsibility. Find your own spiritual haven and implement this as a regular part of your life. We suggest the Unitarian Church, study groups incorporating your search and philosophies, hobby groups, anything that includes you in a regular group activity of healing or spirituality. Reach out to family, friends, and strangers, spending more quality time exchanging and sharing and supporting. If you are an Older Soul (Level 3 or older) it is time to implement all of your knowledge to-date, and we do not limit this to the current life. You are the sum total of all lives lived to this point, and we suggest assuming your ancientness as something worth trusting. The world is still not ready to embrace the values of the Old Soul, but there is an opportunity here to help your fellow Humans through troubling experiences you know as all too familiar from other lifetimes. The Older Soul knows there is a choice in every instance as to how the life can be seen, created, and experienced. We suggest that the Older Souls practice releasing attitudes of fear and distrust. We suggest acknowledging the overall picture, practice feeling the greater motion of the Tao, recognizing the events unfolding as a collective choice and part of a larger pattern of certain progress. For now, this can best be done by creating "vividry" in your daily routine. This simply means to slow down your consciousness for a few moments, widen your eyes, release any tension in your face, shoulders, neck, hands, tongue, legs, and experience FULLY the environment you are in at that moment. It will not matter where or when you are, the effects will be profound after some time. Look closely at every texture, color, face, while feeling/sensing your own skin and looking at your body as this amazing extension of the "you" who is observing. Recognize that all people around you are their own ideas, manifested. Marvel at the creativity of these souls and personalities, trusting in their process as part of the Tao. Creating vividry in the moment can help you align with your own Essence and the potential Higher Center Energy that is available to you. The greatest contribution Older Souls have for the planet at this time is to "hold consciousness" (or vividry) right where you are, with as much generated compassion, trust, and acceptance as possible. This has the potential to incorporate a potential matrix of "safety" for all fragments who prefer to choose other than the more violent, tragic paths. We do not suggest this activity as a means to “protect from” or “fight against” the times, or as a means to save yourself and others from some vague threat, but more as an opportunity of choice to simply "float to the top" of the turbulence, releasing your energetic investments in any chaos. If you have not successfully navigated the 4th Internal Monad, or if you are under the age of 40, it may be more appropriate to take the Mature Soul stance we suggested above. You will know what is more appropriate, even if you feel a need to combine the ideas. Whatever your choice, all includes recognition of Others as Self. To summarize: Older Souls lighten up; and Mature Souls, reach out. The path to agape has just potentially "shortened" for your species. We cannot save you from yourselves, but we can assure you that there is nothing to lose when your choices include truth, love, and oneness as often as possible. As usual, we remind you that all is chosen and all choices are valid. We offered our perspective, not as instruction, but as a response to your question. We have no investment in how you choose, because we will see you through to the end of any path. END In reference to Michael commenting on the karma between Bush and bin Laden: COMMENT/QUESTION: Oooohh, I resent being caught up in personal karma between these two! Or at least, I would resent it, if I weren't so full of LOVE and COMPASSION and UNIVERSAL FELLOW FEELING. Hmmph. But why couldn't they have agreed to work it out on more intimate terms? Why do the rest of us have to get dragged into it? MICHAEL: We do not believe the current scenario is one that was planned or agreed upon before the life began. During times of great shifting in Soul Ages, there are multitudes of potential scenarios to help perform the catalyst for permanent implementation of the newer perceptions. A Soul Age shift on a planet requires a catalyst, whether positively or negatively implemented and any Soul Age group may contribute to that. The fragments who have shown interest in being that catalyst have nearly all been late Baby or Young Souls. Examining the events of major media shocks of an emotional nature across the past 7 years or so will reveal that truth. The greatest catalyst before the attack on the World Trade Center was the "Columbine Shootings". To be the catalyst for change while completing personal agenda is not only highly appealing to fragments, but creates enormous leaps of possibility for the fragments involved. Most who are directly involved on such a scale of shift literally condense their progress through the Soul Ages by several lives. Both of the fragments in question [Bush/bin Laden] are past the mid-points of their Soul Age, both near the end of their current levels. We believe their 7th Levels will be reached within a few lives or so. Although it would appear to be unfortunate, many find the greatest opportunities for progress and growth in the excitement of danger, war, death, trauma, and general anxiety. We believe this to simply be the nature of the soul as it progresses through the discovery of more comfortable forms of growth. In a world where it is acceptable to the Personality to harm many forms of life as a means of convenience, to exploit as a means to gain knowledge and ensure comforts, it may not be surprising that Essence then has no reference for what might be a more compassionate form of growth and progress on a larger scale. In other words, when compassion is so severely limited within a species, Essence has not gained experiences enough to know that pain and struggle and suffering do not have to be “normal”. We remind you that your lifetimes contribute to your Essence's growth and it processes ONLY what it learns from/through the Personality. Compassion for self begins first, extending then to your family, community, other species, other kingdoms, and eventually to your entire species. The average level of compassion on your planet is currently limited to a community level. Essence is only intelligent from a "higher perspective" because of what it can glean from all the lives lived to that point. It is not “all-knowing” or even “all-loving” to a point that negates the need for growth; if that were the case, incarnating would be pointless. Essence is LEARNING. From YOU. If its basic input to-date has been from the experiences of self-preservation, then the contexts in which the newer Personality finds itself will be using that as a base. It is up to the new personality (your current self) to grow beyond what Essence has learned so far. Many Older Souls are drawing from that primary base of self-preservation because the scale of this event is larger than what is in their own instinctive history across time. Self-preservation has sufficed to this point in your planet's growth, but with this catalyst, combined with the immediate access to the world-at-large, more than self-preservation of the immediate life and environment are being drawn in. In other words, regardless of the age of your Soul, a level of realization for the need for compassion beyond your own community, responsibility in choices, and emotional accessibility is new to everyone. TO EVERYONE. Each Cadre, Entity, and Fragment will learn their own versions of what growth means, and this is why there is no standard or external force waiting to "grade", approve, or "pass" you. When you are done learning what you want, you are done, ON YOUR TERMS ALONE. There are no exceptions. In light of that, we would suggest that as the planet progresses in average Soul Age and population, the more "advanced" the lessons you will begin to seek. All of you present currently “wanted” to be present for this shift, regardless of how it feels now. You would not be involved on any scale if there was not agreement between Essence and Personality on some level to endure this event. The versions of you in this parallel[§§] were highly interested in "something" acting as a strong enough catalyst to being people into the awareness of the planet as a Whole, and to provide a more sudden excuse/justification for coming together. The attempts were originally, passively made in what you call "reality television", the numerous school shootings, Princess Diana's death, and several other events and films, but those were too gradual for most tastes. This recent event did what no other event has. It re-humanized the world. Previous to this, there was only the Young Soul context for interaction in that each feared that another was only out to "use you", "get something", or simply to impose on you. We have seen a 70% drop in this mentality across the planet within these past two weeks. These kinds of barriers do not drop momentarily, they are nearly always permanent. Your choices will lead from here. -Michael ORIGINAL FINAL NOTE FROM TROY: I am glad some of you are getting something from the report. It only skims the surface of the situation, I know, and I am aware when channeling that there is a vast amount of information to be obtained. I seem to be remaining connected to Michael even while not in full focus and there is a weight of information sitting there. Most of it is probably not necessary to know, but some of it will get through appropriately, either through me or other channels. I'd like to refine the details of the Cadres and Entities involved, since that was a rough draft of the situation. This reminds me: MBV SAYS: If a cadre/energy ring working through discipline could cause such destruction, what might they have done if they put their minds to a cure for cancer or something of that sort? TROY: I wanted to clarify that I did not get the impression that the Cadre was the CAUSE of the destruction in any way!! I got the impression that a situation was going to occur in some way, some how, and this Cadre ELECTED to be part of that, not really “knowing” how it would eventually unfold. This was a collective event, albeit using as a catalyst the Karma between George and Osama. And as far as a cure for Cancer; I think that is the same thing as asking what the cure for Fear is. When we can erase fear, then illness will probably have no home. I'd like to look further into the person who is Osama and his history, what is motivating him from other angles than Karma with George. Anyway, I am doing my best, and will continue to try! Love, Troy (This document was grammatically edited and re-sent to groups in August 2004) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [*] This Cadre/Entity system is based on the “classic” (Michael’s) version, not “shepherd’s”. 1 Energy Ring = 12Cadres = 84Entities; Michael is from Energy Ring #1, Cadre 11, Entity 4, while most who are currently part of the Michael Teachings as Students are in Energy Ring #2; Energy Rings are grouped in 12 called a Division, as well.

  2. ENERGY REPORT OCTOBER 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) OCTOBER marks the shift of emphasis for the year toward that of the Chief Negative Features, which are those behaviors that are prompted as a form of defense against certain fears. When anyone moves into serious self-assessment of the past, it can either bring out one’s fears, or bring out one’s gratitude. Self-assessment happens throughout the year for everyone, but in terms of our “Energy Reports,” we speak to the general wave of collective processes, and October through December tends to be a time period where more than half of the planet goes through a self-assessment. This is largely due to the fact that it is the end of the calendar year for most of the planet, and any significant shift in measuring large arcs of time can prompt mass self-assessment. When mass self-assessment happens, then mass fears and their subsequent defenses can be prompted. The Chief Features we interpret for the year are those that reflect how collective fear may be played out in the world, not necessarily in one’s personal life, though it is difficult to evade the collective fears if one is even remotely participating in the world. Everyone will have his or her individual Chief Feature methods for responding to fear, but the Chief Features described for the year is how all of that collective energy may flow into the world and show up. This year, those whose self-assessment brings up fear may contribute to the fears that revolve around CONTROL. Impatience and Martyrdom are the defenses against fears related to Controlling TIME or Controlling SPACE, respectively. Keep in mind that our Chief Features do not describe the actual fears, but what one tends to do IN REACTION or DEFENSE against fears. Impatience is a reaction to, or a defense against, the fear that time is running out, is slipping by, is overwhelming, and cannot be controlled. Martyrdom is a reaction to, or a defense against, the fear that one’s life, environment, personal space or world is out of control, is hurting rather than helping, and does not comply to one’s wishes, demands, and expectations. Time and Space can never truly be controlled beyond a certain extent, and for the most part, one only has control over how one experiences, interprets, and uses these resources. The defenses and reactions that come up when one cannot control these things is useless against the experience of the passing of time, or the direction of everything in one’s environment or world. One can fear getting old all one wants to fear it, but one will grow older. One can prepare for the worst all one wants, or wish for the best, but one cannot control the entirety of economy, geological disasters, or the choices of others, etc. One can completely control his or her experiences, interpretations, and use of these qualities of life, however. This year appears to be bringing up a great deal of exploration around the issue of Control, and this is being played out in the world in ways that we have not been seen since the 1960’s. At this point, the fear of losing control in the world looks a bit like great fists desperately squeezing sand to hold on to it. For most of our students, we see that they are observing this more than experiencing it, but it may show up in the personal realm, as well, depending upon how much one is participating in the world at large. Even merely observing it is participation. We encourage our students to be a part of the world, if they choose. It is not an aim of our teaching to encourage one to rise above it or escape it, but to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn within the experiences of it. There are two polarities happening the world at this point that are dealing with this issue of Control. On the positive side, we have a mass of fragments who recognize that a momentum is in place that is headed toward catastrophe on many levels. Their response is more along the lines of “steering” as a means of returning to control, but in order to get this steering under control, “the brakes” have to be put on. Hard. This has shown up in many ways this year where those who were at the mercy of a momentum that was not of their obvious choice have finally put on the brakes and are redirecting the momentum as best they can. This will most likely be seen even more so in the months ahead, where those who would most suffer from a harmful momentum are taking responsibility and doing what they can to help halt and redirect. It is the beginning of a revolution, and not in just the obvious ways, but in psychic ways, as well, and across several countries. On the negative side, a minority of fragments are digging in their heels from a paradigm that refuses to accommodate change, evolution, prosperity, sharing, empathy, etc. In short, they refuse to accommodate the shift from Young Soul paradigm of “there is you and me, and I’m going to win” to that of the Mature Soul paradigm of “there is you and me, and I know how you feel.” Furthermore, they refuse to accommodate the inevitable shift from the Debt-based Society of the past 100 year Platform to a Choice/Resource-based Society of the 21st Century Platform. Those fragments refusing to participate and adapt to this inevitable change among the masses of consciousness on the planet will most likely continue to do all they can to ensure their paradigm is not disturbed. Ironically, their paradigm would not be disturbed if they would not presume it should also be the paradigm of the masses. There is a way for them to carry on without too much inconvenience, but this is not particularly attractive to these Younger souls at this time. The scenario at this time is similar to that of a group of teenagers who have won the lottery because of tickets bought by the adults around them, with the teenagers not only refusing to share, but refusing to acknowledge that their winnings are precisely because of those who did not win. It is their right not to share, of course, but it is also their demise, as there is little value to anything that one does not share or exchange, from the wallet to the smile. Money (resources) has little value in the Mature Paradigm, unless it is shared, so a new system would either come into place to completely remove the value of money as it is currently understood, or a new way of distributing the resources and money of the world would come into play. Every fragment is free to live in his own world, so to speak, but there is never a time on the planet, regardless of predominant Soul Age, when one is not simultaneously, inherently in a shared reality with everyone else on the planet, and one’s choices and actions have impact on those with whom that reality is shared. This default of a shared reality is part of how a species grows in consciousness, because everyone’s choices and actions must be dealt with to some extent, and eventually these begin to be experienced in a way that is either pleasant or harmful. As one is on the receiving or contributing end of those experiences, more consciousness is brought to the process of choice, giving rise to greater pleasures and less harm. This aim toward pleasure is not required, of course, but it simply seems to be preferred, which would make sense because it feels good. We know of no Essence who truly prefers true harm over true pleasure, even if some Personalities choose to bring great harm in a lifetime. In the long run, Pleasure tends to be the higher aim, and is always the preference of Essence. Your world, at this point, is embracing the Mature Soul paradigm at an exponential rate, and every facet of the previous Young Soul paradigm that contributes harm is going to be addressed. Paradigm shifts are often brought about by masses, but in the Mature shift, the masses would most likely be geared toward the most peaceful, educational , and empathic of efforts possible for that change to take effect. Bumping up against the force of the Young Paradigm may, however, require some “fighting back,” and this may not be pleasant in some cases. So what you have in the world as Impatience and Martyrdom is being played out in a group that is struggling to retain control through the negative poles of Intolerance and Victimization, and another group that is struggling to regain control through positive poles of Audacity and Selflessness. There may be some cross over between the groups, but the division should be fairly clear. Most of our Older Soul students are as excited about this as they are terrified, and this is “just the beginning.” This polarized battle for control is more than likely going to end in control being lost by many before regaining footing again among the masses. For the next few months, this struggle may play out in the world much like a tug of war between a mass of ants and a Red Wood Tree, but it will only be in the breaking or dropping of the rope that either side “wins” and can move on to a preferable momentum. On a personal level, this playing out of Chief Features in the world may bring some anxiety and stress to our students. This would be natural, but not necessary. Your world is going to change. It is inevitable. And we can assure you that our students have the masses “on their side” in terms of moving everyone toward a paradigm that is more comforting to Older Souls than one has been in a long time. This is not a prediction, but a fairly stable probability that is consistent with many shifts we have seen. Every revolution is ugly for the chaos it brings at first, but then leads into patterns that can once again be considered beautiful. Translating all of this into personal terms, the next few months may find you feeling affected by unfolding of events in your inner or outer world that may look and feel rather chaotic, depressing, or even traumatic, but remembering that this is simply a process of rearranging a harmful momentum to be aimed toward a more pleasurable direction. To ignore, hide, or dismiss it is a choice to contribute to the chaos, but to observe, hold a vision, and live by example, would do far more for reducing the impact of such a revolution. Helpful thoughts over OCTOBER might be: 1) THERE ARE VERY FEW BAD PEOPLE, But MANY Better Choices The concept of “bad” is usually relative to your own ideas about what are important and meaningful choices, which may easily put you in the same position as “bad” to those on the other side of an issue. We dare say that nearly every one of our students have been on the receiving end of this label, or similar, when his or her own well-intentioned, personal choices were deemed as “bad,” or as harming another who stood against those choices, when in fact, nothing harmful was being done. Keep this in mind when making the choice to defend or condemn, as it may simply be a matter of differences in priorities, values, and meanings, and not a matter of good vs bad. To seek only to change the choices of another to accommodate your own, even if your choices are “clearly” better, is to do the same thing against which you are probably standing. To help keep your personal world from falling into an outdated paradigm that pits one side against another, it is always helpful to remember that every individual does the best he or she can with what he or she thinks are important or meaningful choices. Making your choices from there can help you to direct yourself toward what you choose, rather than spending all of your time trying to convince or halt another individual’s or group’s choices. Even in situations of oppression or true harm, it is more than likely your own capacity for making better choices that will save the day, rather than the focus on the condemnation of the oppressor. 2) BEING HURT IS NOT THE SAME THING AS BEING HARMED It times when the fears related to Control are emphasized, it is important to differentiate between the concepts of Hurt and Harm. Hurt is a reaction, and as such is an extension of choice. Harm is an intention. If you are slapped in the face, it may Hurt no matter who does it, or how it is done, but whether Harm was intended is a very important factor to consider. A person who is slapped in the face by someone who intends to Harm can experience far more damage than one who has been accidentally hit by a car, unintentionally. Harm must be intended for it to be True Harm. All True Harm Hurts, but not all Hurts are the result of True Harm. You have control over your Hurting, even when someone intended to Harm you. Your Hurt is your own, and can be processed as you choose, even if it includes Physical Hurting. A person who owns his or her Hurt tends to experience far less pain than someone who feels that his or her Hurt is someone else’s responsibility to heal. Even Physical recoveries are helped by this differentiation. Differentiating between Hurt and Harm, then, is vital for one’s health, recovery, or even revolution. If someone disappoints you, it can hurt, but if there was no intention to hurt you, and it is only a matter of someone making a choice that you wish he or she did not make, it is not Harm, no matter how hurt you feel. It is up to you what you do with this kind of differentiation, but it can be far less painful than waiting for, or pushing for, someone else to fix your Hurt. Hurt can be experienced in such moments as disappointment, as well as moments of True Harm, so it is easy to default to the presumption that your Hurt was intended, but more often than not, it was never intended. In an evolving consciousness and in an evolving world/paradigm, the responsibility of one’s own Hurting begins to be a priority for healing,and transformation to happen, rather than through resorting to blame. It is okay to hold someone accountable for the choices that he or she makes that may have been hurtful to you, or for you to make choices that will remove you from the hurt caused by the choices of another person, but your hurt is not something to which you must remain attached, even if Harm was intended. Knowing that Harm was or was not intended can help you to make better choices in response to the experience, rather than remaining in a state of reaction. Feeling Hurt is one way for you to become aware of what or who is not working in your life, and that is all it has to be. If you stub your toe, it would make no sense to blame the table leg. It simply means for you to be aware of that table leg and to be more careful, if you choose. If you were to wait for the table leg to apologize or do the work of healing your toe, it would be absurd. It is no different in cases where another person meant no Harm, even if you are Hurt. Your choices can be made from this awareness, and your hurt can dissolve, rather than turning into further ailments and patterns. NOTE: The current psychic revolution, or paradigm shift, on your planet is now in the process of grasping this differentiation, and making collective choices from there in as effective a way as possible. It is rather impressive. DATES OF INTEREST OCTOBER 3rd through OCTOBER 5th - a divergence (branching into parallels) Nexus with an emphasis on mass responsibility versus mass blame. Some will branch off into parallels where wars would most likely be of interest, while some will branch off into parallels where communication, education, responsibility from within is the emphasis, giving rise to revolutions and movements, instead of wars. This parallel shift is a divergence between those who are interested in a "Think for yourself" world, as opposed to those who wish to have others do the thinking for them. OCTOBER 20th through 29th- a major, lengthy divergence that extends from the previous, which may be marked by some rather spectacular world event, if this Nexus occurs. This Divergence would emphasize another round of examples for why everyone needs to work together, and not fall into the illusions of duality or delusional, divisive tactics. The "Think for yourself" may show up in problem solving patterns that are the result of matrices of contributing thought, rather than from an authority. The obvious effects from this Nexus may not manifest until the following year, as this appears to be relative to a long-term exploration.
  3. Michael Speaks Live "Transforming Chief Features" May 25, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We have had much to say about the subject of the Chief Negative Features, and much more can be said, of course, so what we will offer up today is not definitive, but simply more to consider as you work to understand and embrace your fears, transforming them away from being obstacles and paralysis to being informative and helpful. Fear was never "meant" to be a challenge or something to undermine any fragment's life, but much like anything that exists, it is a tool that can become a pivotal resource toward Agape or a restrictive halt away from everything. Fear, or the Chief Negative Features, are inherently "negative" because they describe the gap between "you" and "other," or "something else." Anything inherently divisive is "negative" in our teaching, but this does not mean it is inherently "bad." Fear is inherent in Personality because Personality is inherently divided from all other things and people, and even from Essence in many ways. From the moment one is born, the first, most primal fear is born along with you: the fear of non-attachment. This fear is biological. It is what keeps "you" alive. It is what clings to the mother, to the caretaker, what keeps the toddler close to the camp, to the tribe, and attached to its resources. It is what keeps the body searching for foods, for water, for tools, etc. Anything that is necessary for survival. So, fear is quite "good" in that regard. Any threat to the attachment of the biological self to its resources is highlighted and avoided, either by fight or flight. Keep this in mind as you explore your own Chief Features, then, because at the heart of everyone's fears, it is this struggle with non-attachment that is key. We will elaborate further upon that consideration as we explore the subject, if time permits. For today's focus, we understand that the interest is in the various ways one can consciously make choices in behavior so as to relieve the effects of a particular fear, or Chief Feature. The point of transforming your relationship to fear is because when fear is informative, it is simply a means of enhancing your capacity to choose. It is not much different from any warning system built in to any vehicle that alerts you as to when you may be in close proximity to a collision. It would not make sense to argue that warning systems are removed from vehicles because the mere presence of those alerts implies something is wrong, flawed, or bad. That warning system is an advantage that increases the capacity for choice, for better navigation, for success in one's direction and endeavors. However, when most struggle with the Chief Features as an issue, it is because the "warning system" goes off randomly, goes off without relevance, goes off constantly, etc. It is no longer associated with an actual threat, or with information. Imagine the difference between enjoying a walk through the woods, watching the birds, the creatures, enjoying the sunlight, the babbling brook, your thoughts, and then noticing a bear in the distance to which you then steer clear of in a smart way, as compared to a walk in the woods where you presume that every twig cracking and every shadow is a bear. Both of these methods are helpful for keeping you alert to bears, but one keeps you from noticing pretty much anything else. If one's "warning system" is random, constant, or irrelevant, then that warning system becomes useless for navigation, and simply keeps you on one end of the spectrum of life. It keeps you on the side of "Being Alive" vs "Living." We will speak of each of the Chief Features now, with a brief synopsis, and then a list of methods for how one can use his or her consciousness to transform that fear so that one is not just being alive, but can live again, so to speak. Synopsis of Self-Deprecation and Arrogance SELF-DEPRECATION and ARROGANCE are attachments to how one defines one's self. Self-Deprecation is the fear of NOT BEING ENOUGH, while Arrogance is the fear of BEING TOO MUCH. Self-deprecation fears not being seen clearly, while Arrogance fears being seen too clearly. Self-deprecation finds its scraps of self-esteem in being first to the punch for cutting himself or herself down. This is Self-deprecation's way of protecting the self from being invisible or feeling invisible or incompetent. The defense here is that if the individual can call out or showcase his or her own flaws first, then it is a way to show that he or she is on board with what they presume you will undoubtedly see, or are seeing already. It is the only way they know how to be seen: through the lens of failures, flaws, insecurities, and doubts. Arrogance, on the other hand, tries to protect its self-esteem by creating as protective a veneer as possible, hiding his or her insecurities behind a persona of false-confidence, offense, and defense. Since there is very little self-esteem here, it must be protected at all costs, often by deflecting through pointing out someone else's flaws or incompetence. It is the only way they know how to keep any sense of self-esteem, by pretending that it exists in greater quantities than it does. Self-deprecation points out its own flaws, and Arrogance points out yours. Self-Deprecation The 7 Angles of Behavior for help in transforming Self-deprecation might be: 1. YOU ARE NOT IN TROUBLE For those who struggle with Self-deprecation, there can often be a haunting sense of constantly being on the verge of being caught, being called out, humiliated, made to be an example, or "in trouble." Even when there is nothing to warrant such concerns. And even more so when there is such a need for concern. Allow for failure, for being incompetent, and build on your experiences so that you can learn, or make choices to pursue other directions. If your only concern is whether you will be in trouble, or not, then you will never truly be your best. 2. YOUR BEST MAY NOT BE THE BEST There are going to be times when you do not meet the expectations of others, or yourself. And the very best that you can do may not be the best that someone else can do. That is a fact of existence. Embrace this and allow kindness as a process in your improvement, or as a part of your freedom to pursue your strengths. 3. CLEAN YOUR CONSCIENCE That is not a typo. We speak to the necessity for those in Self-deprecation to CLEAN their conscience. By this we mean that the individual take time to note just how much clutter is in the mind that is from the past, buried like shallow graves, gathered there like a cemetery of failures and flaws, ready to be dug up at a moment's notice. It is important that those in Self-deprecation regularly look at these experiences as a PART of who they are, and not defining who they are. CLEAN your conscience of these metaphorical graves and begin to make room for life, for living things to grow there. Let the failures of the past act as fertilizer, if you will, rather than preserved as some sort of trophy that makes up for competence. 4. CLEAN YOUR ENVIRONMENT In addition to the clutter of the mind, those in Self-deprecation can fall into clutter of their space, reflecting the building debris of flaws, failures, failed expectations, etc. For those with Self-deprecation, there can be a high tolerance for clutter, and this can be reflective of the tolerance for the the clutter in the mind, heart, and body. A regular effort to clean, organize, and experience one's space helps to clean, organize, and experience one's self. Attention to personal hygiene is important here, too. Those in Self-deprecation may not "smell" as a result of lacking personal hygiene, but they may very well skip on certain routines of care for the body that would help them to transform the sense of invisibility and inadequacy into self-nurturing and personal attentiveness. 5. CARE FOR YOURSELF Do not presume that someone else needs to, or should, or could do this for you. Care for yourself in as many ways you can in a day. Give yourself good food, good entertainment, good bathing, good hygiene, kindness, patience, etc. 6. STOP APOLOGIZING/EXCUSING As long as you constantly apologize for yourself, you are not being responsible for yourself. As long as you are making excuses, you are not being responsible. Apologies and excuses are deflection from responsibility. We are not speaking here in terms of the social courtesy of acknowledging grief, or acknowledging a slight, but apology and excuses as a buffer to protect from the ownership of response. 7. OWN YOURSELF By this we mean that you freely acknowledge your behaviors, your failures, your flaws, but respond to them through ownership, not as a way to deflect from further responsibility. When you apologize or offer excuses, you are reacting. You are not owning. When you own yourself, you can respond as opposed to react, and this is key to responsibility. AN ASIDE: Keep in mind that the Chief Features will not just show up as behaviors in yourself, but as behaviors you endure or attract in others, as well. Arrogance The 7 Angles of Behavior for transforming ARROGANCE might be: 1. NO ONE IS LOOKING For those in Arrogance, the fear that everyone is watching them is high. There is a keen sense that every move and choice and action is being scrutinized and of high relevance to others. In most cases, that is simply not true. No one is watching you. Most do not care if your hair is messed up, you stumbled, or if you are meeting your own standards or expectations. 2. CELEBRATE PRIVATELY For many in Arrogance, there is a compulsion to make it known to others every little success, to point out immediately a win, or to even "humblebrag," which is a self-congratulation tucked into a false self-deprecation. Allow yourself celebrate yourself with yourself. Your successes are just as real with or without being used as a means for defining yourself to others. See if you can embrace a success on your own without recruiting others to celebrate you. 3. CELEBRATE OTHERS Sometimes those in Arrogance can be so preoccupied with presuming everyone is watching them, that they forget to pay any meaningful attention to others. 4. LEAVE YOURSELF ALONE Those in Arrogance can be even harsher in self-criticism than those in Self-deprecation. Self-deprecation can slide into a quiet defeat, but Arrogance can be relentless. Many in Arrogance are their own worst bullies, if you will, taking on the voices of their past that criticized them, owning them so as to find some of their self-esteem in "siding" with this self-loathing. 5. LEAVE OTHERS ALONE Those in Arrogance can be of the worst bullies toward others, as well, actively or passively condescending in tone, words, behaviors, etc. If you find that you are talking down about another person, or yourself (see 4), behaving in a way that is not constructive, or helpful, but simply emphasizing flaws, then it may be time to look at how you are giving rise to voices of criticism that you carry about yourself. Criticism is helpful and meaningful, but not when only used as a means of deflection or protection. 6. EMBRACE EQUALITY By this we mean that while there will always be nuances among everyone and everything, with great gaps between common grounds, with some being better at some skills than others, or more socially celebrated than others, or even unfairly rewarded more than others, there is still profound relevance to the common ground of humanity and existence. In other words, allow comparisons to be informative, not defining. When you see or feel you are better than another, or that another is acting as if better than you, then remind yourself of as much that you share as possible. This does not mean you are not better at what you do than someone else might be, or that another person is not more attractive to more people than you may be, but let yourself have that which is equally true, as well. You do not have to pretend there are no differences, but do not pretend there are no similarities, either. 7. INVITE INTIMACY More than most other Chief Features, Arrogance will keep others at a distance, even as they often feign being very open and up front with you. Many in Arrogance will carefully construct a spectrum of revealing behaviors and expressions that others presume is all there is to know or see about that person, thus protecting the person in Arrogance from those who might otherwise pry. So it can be helpful for the person in Arrogance to take some responsibility and care in consciously inviting others to be close, not presuming that others will find their way, and then looking up and wondering where everyone is. Those in Arrogance can be of the loneliest people because they create the greatest moats of protection, but crave so desperately to be close at the same time. And so it can be helpful to actively invite intimacy, either in obvious ways such as literally asking for conversation, inviting to social events, etc, or by simply allowing the self to be present with another, listening, paying attention, and responding with care. Intimacy is not always about receiving attention, but about giving it. Due to the extensive elaboration on each of these Chief Features, we must suggest that this be broken up into a couple of sessions for delivery. We started with Self-deprecation and Arrogance, as these are most common for older souls, but we will have to elaborate upon the remaining Chief Features in another exchange. We will open the floor here for the next 15 minutes so that questions can be asked. FLOOR IS NOW OPEN [ViP] Is there any difference in how these Angles of Behavior should be interpreted or applied, based on whether the CF attempting to be transformed is primary, vs secondary, vs tertiary? MEntity: Each of the 7 Angles we offered would likely be relevant in any context, but one of the angles may be more relevant than others of that Chief Feature. [BrianW] Realizing there is not enough time to go over it in-depth, could you give a way to counteract the sliding of the negative poles of self-deprecation to self-destruction? MEntity: If Self-deprecation is sliding to Self-destruction, it would mean that it is, first, accessing Stubbornness. Self-deprecation cannot slide to Self-destruction otherwise. This means that Self-deprecation's Negative Pole of Self-abasement is sliding to Stubbornness' Negative Pole of Obstinance, and then over to Self-destruction's Suicide. When that is the case, it is likely that the Personality has decided what is so awful about the self, then refuses to change in any way that could be beneficial, which then leads to a sense of complete waste of life. To help counteract this, one would need to slide to GREED's "positive" pole of APPETITE. Though no Chief Features is truly "positive," the positive poles do describe the path out of that Chief Feature. In this case, having an appetite for life again, an embrace of what one wants and needs, can greatly counter the sense that life is simply being wasted on the self. Once that sense of appetite for life is remotely available, more life can come, more living. And that matters, even if only on a day to day basis. [Mariusrehm] can it in any way be helpful to make others aware of what you think their features might be? is a certain amount of intimacy/closeness needed for them to not feel accused when that is addressed? or does everybody has to completely explore these things on their own? MEntity: Marius, it is often more helpful for you to know the Chief Features of others than for you to point them out to them. Pointing out the Chief Features of others is only helpful if there is a mutual agreement to allow for this. Trust is necessary here, and even then it can be tricky. Of course, it is your choice as to whether you do this for someone, and how you do it, but we can say from experience that it is true that meaningful common ground and trust is fairly vital for the "photographing" of another to be useful to them. By "photographing" we mean those moments when one would offer up a "snapshot" of a moment or behavior of another for consideration. In some cases, however, intervention may be necessary if a person is completely unaware. When intervention is offered, the one who is offering must be willing to endure the reactions, deflections, defenses, and denials that might come from the confrontation of the reality of one's harmful impact on the self or others. This must be considered carefully, if intervention is deemed necessary. If one is not to the extreme of necessity for intervention, then one's most effective means of inviting another to consider his or her Chief Feature is to simply ask if that person knows that his or her behavior has a particularly harmful or divisive effect. In that invitation through asking, you will likely see if there is any room for meaningful discussion, or if there will only be more of the same. [Tyrone] Mine can just be a yes or no type answer, I'm just suspicious: [Tyrone] Were each of these 7 angles you gave related to the Centering Parts? Or I guess more generally, related to the axes and cardinality/ordinality? [Tyrone] (I am currently thinking in the order you gave them: 1. Instinctive, 2. Intellect, 3. Emotion, 4. Moving, 5. Higher Int., 6. Higher Emot., 7. Higher Moving) MEntity: Correlations could certainly be made, though further elaboration may be necessary to point out how these resonate. [Tyrone] I guess just were you guys thinking along those lines when coming up with them MEntity: Everything we ever offer can be mapped in correlative terms. Today's information is not an exception. However, we are not certain as to the order that Troy "unpacked" the delivery, so we would not consider these static correlations as far as the sequence. We think they are close, though, if not already in the sequence you describe. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, I hope this fits in relatively good context with this discussion, but I've been noticing a difficulty in understanding Caution's -Phobia in comparison to the CFs. Could you elaborate or clarify the difference between these CFs and -Phobia? MEntity: All Negative Poles of any Overleaf will be hooked into Chief Features, so Phobia, for example, would hook into that person's Chief Feature. The same would be said for Ingratiation or Identification, as Negative Poles for Acceptance or Passion, respectively. In other words, the Negative Poles of an Overleaf are what activate Chief Features, not the other way around. Caution is a means of relating, or reaching the Goal, by refining one's thoughts and expression, so Deliberation is when one is able to carefully select a thought or expression as that means of relating or reaching the goal. Phobia comes in when the person begins to overanalyze, overthink, and can no longer refine his or her interpretations or expressions. This person becomes frightened of his own thinking. This, then, would trigger whatever Chief Feature has come to be habitual as a means to protect the self. But this inability to refine one's thoughts would come first. To clarify: this person's over-thinking starts to scare him, triggering his Chief Features. Do you see the difference? [Kurtis] Yes I definitely do [Kurtis] I've been meaning to ask this kind of question for a while now MEntity: We will conclude here for today, and continue this discussion into the other Chief Features. We know we have many students who are in Arrogance and Self-deprecation, so a good number of you can begin to consider how you can transform these, if you choose to do so. From a different channeling session: Impatience [CocteauBoy] 1. TAKE TIME OFF - separate yourself from the steady stream of influence time has over you, and move yourself into a position that is intended to be free, such as going for a nice walk, a night off to the movies, a meeting with a friend for conversation, etc. Anything that you would normally NOT do because you "do not have enough time," TO DO. [CocteauBoy] 2. QUIET YOUR MIND - Impatience can scramble your thinking process to such an extent that you are no longer effective, so it would do you well to SLOW DOWN your mind, your thinking, and find your quiet, internal space. This could be done in the shower, or in a bath, or any other moment you think of it. Simply relax your face, your jaw, feel the weight of your tongue in your mouth, the presence of your chest, and for a full handful of minutes from 3 to 30, JUST BE. This practice of BEING will allow you to come back to your moment with far more effectiveness. [CocteauBoy] 3. EMBRACE ONE THING - Impatience can often leave one feeling as if she must be on top of everything that is on the agenda, thus everything clamors for the attention of the priority spot. Instead of thinking of one thing causing the delay of another, it would do you well to think of your focus on one thing as an EMBRACE of that thing, much like your hugging of a child or puppy, knowing that you will happily and quickly hug the next child or puppy, as soon as you are done hugging one. This will help you to keep out intrusive thinking and distracted emotions. [CocteauBoy] 4. USE YOUR BODY - Impatience can often leave one feeling the burden of Time on the body, which can leave one ignoring the effectiveness of the body, leading to clumsiness and erratic behaviors or reactions. One of the greatest ways to use your body is to LISTEN. Most fragments who suffer from Impatience tend to presume the intent, meaning, and words of others who are communicating. [CocteauBoy] There is rarely any patience for the act of LISTENING. Some who suffer from Impatience do not even realize how little they listen because they simply go deaf to the outside world, so to speak, but have learned to speak for everyone around them so effectively they think their own words are those of others'. Taking a moment to ask if you are LISTENING can help you to come back to the moment and actually make more effective decisions and responses in the moment. [CocteauBoy] 5. CREATE PATTERNS - Impatience usually drives an individual into patterns that are comforting, rather than productive. When one is in impatience, and creating only comfort patterns, there still must be a sense of proof for the use of Time, so this leads to lying to oneself, lying to others, so that the time appears to have been met with enough challenge to validate ones existence, or one will escape into routines that are simply "going nowhere." Patterns are perfectly valid, but when one is Impatient, these patterns can move into entropy, so one must bring an awareness to the process of one's patterns and ask if they are being CREATED, or if they are merely being fulfilled. Make a simple change as a means to create or alter a pattern and the results can often be rather amazing. [CocteauBoy] 6. PRESENCE - Though we have mentioned this already, it is worth pointing out as its own concern, to be PRESENT. Those afflicted with Impatience are often NOT where they are in time. They are often somewhere else, such as an elusive future, or a sentimental past. It would do you well to practice being present when you are doing something. To do so would mean to be fully aware that your actions are being driven by your choice, and that your skin, your hands, your face, your body, Personality, are all on board for the moment, even if you would rather be doing something else. The more you escape the moment, the less you can bring change to your momentum. [CocteauBoy] 7. LAUGH AT TIME - by this we mean to point out that Time has very little to do with your life beyond your experience and interpretation of it. If you can find the humor and heart in your relationship to Time, you can find it as an ally, instead of as an oppressive dictator. Laughing at Time can mean finding fun things to do, playful things to do, meaningless and pointless things to do, as long as you enjoy them and they help you to lose your focus on time. In doing so, you can begin to help your Personality and Body to see just how little REALITY there is time beyond your use of the moment, and your interpretation of that.
  4. 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.
  5. OMW - Oct 22, 2011 - What is WRONG with me? MEntity channeled by Troy Tolley CocteauBoy SAYS: because today is a small class, do your best to really focus. We are going to experiment with a highly-interactive session today, so you'll have to answer questions, etc. At least, that's what I'm going to ask Michael to try out today. 9:32 AM 10/22/2011 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. [MEntity] We understand the subject to be that of the sort that asks "what is wrong with me?" [MEntity] This kind of question is asked in one of two ways: inquisitively and rhetorically. [MEntity] When it is asked inquisitively, insight can be gained, and the concept of "wrong" is held clearly as meaning only that comparison between one state and a presumably improved state. [MEntity] It is a form of self-awareness to ask this question, even if the wording is a bit crude. [MEntity] When it is asked rhetorically, it is only asked as a means to condemn the self, to undermine it, and is not interested in any actual answer. [MEntity] It is a form of self-delusion to ask this question in such a way, giving rise to voices that are not your own, but claiming them as if they are your own. [MEntity] So we will ask each of you, first: Do you ask "what is wrong with me?" as a form of self-awareness or as a form of condemnation? This question is not a test; it is a direct question toward your capacity for honesty in this. [Brian_W] usually condemnation [Martha] usually self-awareness [ML] well...both. More the former than the latter [GeraldineB] I rarely ask the question any more [Brian_W] looks like we got all four possible answers [MEntity] Owning the difference between inquisitive and rhetorical can help you greatly when the question is asked. When it is inquisitive, you will not mistake it as an insult, but as a friendly jab, if you will, toward a direction of improvement to your liking. When it is rhetorical, you will not mistake it as an honest question, but as a voice of condemnation that is not your own, and you [MEntity] may then provide yourself with the comfort you need in that moment. [MEntity] When you ask the question inquisitively, you inherently know what to do, for the most part: you simply learn from your experiences and continue with experiments. [MEntity] When you ask the question rhetorically, you are so confused about what to do, that you you miss the need and craving beneath the words. For most, the rhetorical question of "what is wrong with me?" means: "Fill_in_the_blank was right about me." [MEntity] This could be a vague "they" or a specific person, such as a caretaker or group of peers. [MEntity] But it is almost always a resignation into someone else's decision that you are not worth their time, not worth their energy, that you are not enough, that you think you are too much, that you are not worth living for, that you want too much, that you do not have enough, that you did not change enough, etc. [MEntity] He, She, They were right. [MEntity] Are right. [MEntity] And I am wrong. [MEntity] Of course, this is often tied directly to your own Chief Negative Features. [MEntity] In almost all cases, it is tied to the Secondary Chief Negative Feature. [Martha] so would this be worse for someone with Self dep as their secondary? [MEntity] Martha, we cannot compare the effects of this rhetorical questioning. It is hurtful to all of you. [MEntity] Based on those attending today, we can say that your rhetorical "What is wrong with me" are stating: They were right - I am not good enough (self-deprecation). They were right - I am too much (arrogance). They were right - I am not worth their time (impatience). [MEntity] If we have your secondary Chief Features incorrect, please correct us. [ML] oh, you were right on, in my case [Martha] looks right [ML] and, what about the 'default' CF, based on our roles....does that play a part? [Brian_W] lately I can see mine sliding to self-destruction, but yes, self-dep is definitely at play here [MEntity] Brian - we do not see Self-destruction at play here, but you know yourself better than we do. We would suggest, however, that destroying or ignoring all forms of inspiration and crippling of your emotional body are at the heart of your "they were right." [MEntity] Self-destruction tends to destroy the capacity for Expression and cripples the Intellect, which we would agree is partially at play here, but at the "heart" of your "they were right" is more along the lines of "life sucks," or "I suck," or "they suck." It is an Inspirational issue. [MEntity] Life is not good enough for you. [MEntity] You are not getting out of life what you presumed was promised or earned. [MEntity] You uphold yourself, others, and life to standards that teeter with an "all or nothing" differentiation. [MEntity] And to that extent, we see your "What is wrong with me?" as being rooted in your Inspirational issues. [MEntity] Everything goes back to your "being good enough." [MEntity] Everything goes back to others "being good enough." [MEntity] Everything goes back to everything either being good enough, or not. [MEntity] And keep in mind that your Chief Negative Features are not just imposed upon yourself, but upon the world and others, as well, so that it is not just you that is not good enough, but others and experiences. [GeraldineB] As a comment, I've noticed that Troy also uses the question in rhetorical fashion in terms of grappling with his crises and scheduling [MEntity] To Geraldine - we would agree. [MEntity] We know of very few Older souls who do not use the question rhetorically. [MEntity] When the question is asked rhetorically, it is the Baby or Young Soul within you that is asking. [MEntity] It is the immature part of you and even of your Essence. If there were no immature parts of Essence, there would be no necessity for evolution and reincarnation. Essence is not without its own deficits in understanding, or its issues, though they are defined and processed rather differently. [MEntity] We do not use the term "immature" as an insulting term, but as a legitimate term to describe the necessity for experience as a means to gain confidence around a particular thing. [MEntity] Regardless of one's technical Soul Age, all previous Soul Ages exist within, and they exist as a full spectrum, so the question comes from the more restricted end of Baby or Young perspectives, in most cases. [MEntity] The Mature and Old parts of you know that "wrong" is a useless term. [MEntity] Because the Physical Plane presence and Body tend to be the focus when "what is wrong with me" comes into play, it immediately draws from the perspectives most-associated with that focus, which are the Baby and Young cycles. [Martha] that's sure the focus for me when it comes up [MEntity] So whether this question comes from that Baby and Young part of your Essence, or from the Chief Negative Features of your current Personality, it is a two-fold matter: [MEntity] One - that it is a lack of experience, or an ignoring of experiences. [MEntity] Two - a craving for comfort; to be reminded or assured that everything will be ok. [Brian_W] YES [MariLynn] ditto [MEntity] So we will ask now: When you ask "what is wrong with me" rhetorically, do you find it valid that it tends to focus on the Physical Plane and your direct participation in it? [Brian_W] Michael, physical as opposed to emotional, or Physical Plane as in everything it encompasses? [MEntity] Brian - no Plane can be entirely isolated, but we do mean the Physical Plane in particular, and your sense of presence and participation in it. The tangible aspects of you. [Brian_W] hmm, hard to answer, as while yes, the lack of participation and invitation to participate seems to be an issue, I think it is more that I am having a difficult time extracting the positive emotional and intellectual experiences of the exchanges [GeraldineB] I know that when I did ask this, it was due to a feeling of inadequacy and failure, not being "good enough" in myriad ways [MEntity] In your case, Geraldine, we think that your Self-deprecation was an immediate source of false "comfort" to avoid the actual impact of Arrogance, or the "they were right - I am too much" at the core of the rhetorical question. [MEntity] Self-deprecation is where you recoiled into, but the question was prompted by your "being too much," or "thinking you were more than you are." [MariLynn] absolutely [Martha] yes, mostly about body image for me [MariLynn] for me, esp. with re: to older souled group interactions, its: aren't I evolved enuf or communicating effectively [MariLynn] ahh....I can relate alot to that as well [MEntity] For those with Primary and Secondary Chief Features on the same Axis, it may be difficult for you to differentiate between what is at the core of "what is wrong with me," and how you self-soothed in reaction to the question. [Brian_W] like right now, I have been arguing with myself of whether or not to ask for help, if I could even accept or recognize the help, for someone to help me recognize and show me what love is. But I know that those types of questions are socially unacceptable to ask [MariLynn] for me, it feels also like a 'core' issue: am I really wanted here? [Brian_W] MariLynn, I get that too [MEntity] In your case, Mari Lynn, we see that your questions are rooted in issues of TIME. When one does not have time for you, or make time for you, or allow you the time for you to fulfill an intent, your question of "what is wrong with me" arises. [MariLynn] [tears] yes [MEntity] Though the specifics can be helpful, we will also describe the core issues in larger terms: [MEntity] For Self-deprecation and Arrogance, the core of the rhetorical question of "what is wrong with me" is about controlling or correcting the perception others have of you (how they feel about you), or how you are loved. [MEntity] In truth, your usefulness is in question in your own eyes. [MariLynn] oh, I can really relate to that one! [MEntity] For Self-destruction and Greed, the core of "what is wrong with me" is about controlling or correcting how others interpret your behaviors, mannerisms, and personal expression (what they think of you), or how honest, sincere, and truthful you are. [Martha] oh yeah [MEntity] In truth, your worth or value is in question in your own eyes. [MEntity] For Impatience and Martyrdom, the core of "what is wrong with me" is about controlling or correcting how others experience your actions, choices, and decisions, or how successful, productive, and accomplished you might be. [MariLynn] yes, esp. living with a parent that has a HIGH level of impatience [MEntity] In truth, it is about what you feel you have to show for your use of time and energy. [MEntity] For Stubbornness, the core can be any of the above, but always in terms that might go back to where/how you are NOW in comparison to where/how you WERE then. In truth, it is about how much you feel you have evolved or changed as a result of your experiences. [MariLynn] omg, yes [MEntity] We understand that, regardless of your Secondary Chief Negative Feature, all of these may seem familiar, and that is because your Chief Negative Features are HABITS, not fixtures. When one goes into a spin of "what is wrong with me," it can explore and ignite every Chief Feature. [MEntity] However, understanding what is actually at the core for you can help you to know where to start. [MariLynn] I was wondering how much our attitude plays into this issue... [Martha] I think I've made a lot of progress, but it seems like there are always more layers to the onion [GeraldineB] I can personally attest that it does get easier, that personal acceptance of self becomes much stronger as one finishes the 4th and then the 5th IM -- acceptance that one's choices are no longer huge chunks out of one's self esteem [MEntity] For instance, to go back to Geraldine, the inadequacy and failure seemed to indicate a core related to Self-deprecation, but we pointed out that the core may more likely be Arrogance. If she can validate this, and it is accurate, then it would mean that her core "what is wrong with me" comes up as a result of being put in her place, dismissed or rejected as thinking she is better, smarter, wiser, etc than she has a right to feel about herself. [GeraldineB] I'd agree with that assessment -- but some of the intensity of my CF has diminished, too -- trying to recapture the past isn't always easy as it no longer means much [MEntity] We think you still experience those moments in which you are reactionary to the feeling of being dismissed or judged as overstepping your rights, boundaries, or "being too much," but you process it much more quickly and right yourself again. Pun intended. [GeraldineB] yes, tis true [GeraldineB] it's not "gone" -- just easier [Brian_W] I think part of my issue is my reliance on others for help, as I don't know how to help myself anymore. I can't even pinpoint where the hurt comes from, I just feel the hurt at this point [MEntity] In response to Brian - [MEntity] You are disappointed. It is that simple. Your inspiration has been lost. When your inspiration is intact, nothing has to be perfect or even on track with expectations, and your enthusiasm is high. What "hurts" is that block on inspiration. [MEntity] In terms of the immature aspects of asking "what is wrong with me," you are simply angry that you are not getting what you want when you want it and how you expected to get it. You experience this as meaning something is wrong, and not just with yourself, but with the world. [MEntity] When, in fact, it is simply a matter of navigation, calibration, and adapting to the terrain of life. There are very few lifetimes that have no detours, obstacles, and disappointments from start to finish. [Brian_W] .... ouch, but fundamentally true, whether I care to admit it to myself or not [MEntity] To compare life to a game is not to diminish it, but to understand the elements of it, so we will do so here: There are few games designed to immediately let you win. It would mean nothing to win that game. It would be empty and useless. [MEntity] And so it is with any lifetime. Your obstacles and challenges can either be seen as condemning elements and taken personally as if they define you, or you simply navigate them, and nurture your inspiration to try something new, different, creative, loving, and aimed with continued intent. [MEntity] We can say this to you and it is true: You are going to be ok. You are ok. You will be ok. We can say that without it being an empty comfort. At least one version of "you" will fulfill all that you intended, and it might as well be "you." Put one choice in front of the next, just as you would get back up and put one foot in front of the other as a means to move forward. You will get there. [MEntity] YOU can say these same things to yourself, and they would not be empty comforts. They would be far more meaningful and true than "life sucks." [MEntity] We will speak to each of you on this matter: [MEntity] Mari Lynn - we can say that you do not have to prove yourself, or justify yourself. You do not have to earn love, and you would do well to remember that others do not have to prove themselves or their love for you. It is your right to BE, no matter how much time or energy it uses or takes. [MEntity] It will be true that you are loved and accepted, regardless of whether you decide you are worth it, or think that others should prove that you are worth their time and energy. [MEntity] Keep in mind that when time and energy/space is involved in terms of acceptance and love, it is often not a condensed moment that can prove or justify your want to be accepted and loved, but an accumulation of moments across time and space that becomes your responsibility to note, remember, and collect as being just as powerful as any singular moment. [MariLynn] another words, how I "talk" to myself? [MEntity] For Martha, we can say you can pretend to be as ugly and as inadequate as you enjoy yourself to be, but it would be a lie. Just because you do not, or cannot, generate powers based on superficial aspects of yourself has nothing to do with how beautiful you are, and how competent you are as a woman, mother, and mate. [MEntity] Using standards that are not your own is an insult to everything you have worked to become over your incarnations. [MEntity] You wanted a beauty that is timeless, not something that can be tucked into a magazine archive to be laughed at in another time and culture and society with new standards. [MEntity] And you have cultivated that beauty. It is yours. It is your right to be in the skin that is yours, not to condemn it for deviating from your immature values that are sometimes convinced to be the highest. [MEntity] We can say to you without it being an empty comfort that you are beautiful, and that you are as beautiful and as attractive to others to the extent that you accept that you are beautiful and competent as a woman, mother, and mate. Anything that undermines that truth is just meanness. [MEntity] And you are not a mean person. [MEntity] To Geraldine - you have never been too much. You have always been just enough, even when the gifts of insight, judgment, feedback, voice were not appreciated or embraced. And they were gifts. And we know you know the difference between those innocent moments that were intended as gifts, and those that were not. [MEntity] But even in those moments that were not intended as gifts, they were still gifts. Your voice is yours. It is your right. It always was, and will continue to be so, even if others have intentionally or unintentionally silenced you. It has meaning, power, and impact, and while you may have had to learn how to wield such a force with grace, it was always and remains to be laced with gifts, even on your worst days. [MEntity] We can say to you without it being an empty comfort that you are important and meaningful. You are not forgotten. Every person within your discriminating circle of communication is permanently affected. [Martha] Yes we are! [GeraldineB] now, I remember some of those times when I've used rhetoric and wanted to pull away :) [MEntity] We offer these valid statements to each of you because you need to hear them. You do not even know that you want to hear them, but you know you need to hear them. [Martha] Oh yes [Brian_W] true [MEntity] We also offer these statements because it is often the case that when you are stuck in the concept of "what is wrong with me," you no longer hear yourself, even if you were to say these same statements of truth to yourself. [MEntity] But one additional truth is that we did not simply draw up these statements based on our interpretation of you; we pulled these from you. These truths are what exist below the "wrongness" and hurt and meanness. [MEntity] They are your truths. Your feelings. They are what you know is more valid about you than what you think is wrong with you. [Martha] pulled from us the Personality, or Essence? [MEntity] When such statements are known within, there is no differentiation, but technically speaking, it would be that your Personality had to know this before Essence could be in on that knowing. [MEntity] We will not always be there to remind you of these statements and knowing, so it is your responsibility to remember these truths. To remember those truths does not mean giving up the frustrations, loneliness, sadness, fear, etc, but that at least you have invited yourself back to YOU, back to the truth, and then you have a choice. What hurts, and what is mean, and what feels "wrong" is when you take your choices away. [MEntity] That goes for Brian, too. You wonder where the hurting is, and why it is, etc, and this is at the core: you have taken your own choices away. You presume you are done for. You presume your disappointments are the conclusion, the truth. And they are not. They are just an experience. You have a right to continue, to draw on your creativity, and to be your own inspiration, to see and accept every shimmer of inspiration that might blink at you or within you. [MEntity] Add it up. There is more to you than this. [Brian_W] So I really do have to find it from within, I'm not going to find someone that can physically be there to provide comfort and confidence to give me a "boost" [MEntity] To Brian - we did not say that, nor did we imply that, but we do point out that this is another of your "all or nothing" scenarios that generate your hurting. [MEntity] You are allowed to enjoy the comfort and confidence of others as a means for gaining a boost. It is all around you. It is in this chat. It is in your community with "TLE." However, if you condemn or ignore even those remote forms of comforting and confidence, then you condemn them all, and this can affect your personal space so that no one wants to risk that condemnation for not living up to your expectations. [MEntity] The key here is not in finding the comfort and confidence, either without or within, but ALLOWING it. LET IT BE YOURS. [MEntity] If you truly wish to be inspired, let it not be more meaningful if coming from within or without. Let it come from everywhere and everyone. Let it. Allow it. Do not look for it. Just let it. It is there. You are exhausted from keeping it away from yourself. [GeraldineB] Do you have a statement for Troy? [MEntity] For Troy: We will only briefly state that your life does not have to continue being a series of terrifying reprimanding. You continue to fear punishment, rejection, and failing expectations, so you aim as high as possible and then you hide internally and externally when you fall short. You have a right to do as well as you do. You do not have to exceed that. You do not have to protect others from you, either. You are a positive force, despite what you were convinced of as a child. [MEntity] You are enough. You do not have to be more than that. Do what you do well and let it be enough, because it is plenty. [MEntity] We have more to say than that, of course, but it is enough for now. [MEntity] We must conclude here today. We have pointed how each of you might identify the core of your "wrongness" and that it is not your own voice. We have pointed out the truth of the voice beneath that, and reminded you to own that, if only for the fact that it increases your capacity to choose. And we pointed out that your hurting, meanness, and feeling of being "wrong" is an indication that you have taken your rights away, and take your choices away. [MEntity] We think you can make a difference with even this little bit of information. The rest is up to you. [MEntity] Good day to each of you. Goodbye.

    Energy Report: AUGUST 2014

    ENERGY REPORT August 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) AUGUST continues emphasis on the Attitude of REALIST. Reading July’s report is relevant in August, as well, but rather than approaching a state of Realism, most would be “in” that state by now. “Reality” would likely take on a bit sharper of an edge, more focused a vision, more direct a line of sight. For some, this may feel like pressure, for others, this may feel like a sense of clarity. A fairly serious mood looks to be in place for August, both in personal terms and worldly terms. Many of our students appear to be in pivotal or turning point vectors regarding some layer or level of their lives, and this is the case on a larger, collective scale, as well. This is not an ominous report, but a normal process that comes around on a fairly regular basis. Sometimes these come around in ways that are more collective than at other times, and this is one of those more collective vectors. If your experience of the Realist state is feeling pressured, it would likely be a matter of your simply having to make a choice, or focus in a direction, that you feel uncertain about. Considering the Chief Feature of the year, Impatience, it is likely a matter of your feeling you should already be ahead of where you are, having procrastinated, vacillated, or evaded the responsibility that might come with the direction. There is no validity to your concern that you should already be where you may wish to go. Your worry, your pressure, your uncertainty is a natural indicator that there is work ahead, and if you choose that direction, you can and will do the work. You can help relieve the pressure by simply taking a step, and then another, and another. There is no need to measure based on an imagined endpoint, but only on the next step. The imagined endpoint is fair to uphold as a destination, but you must still do the work of getting there. If one were driving from New York City to San Francisco, it would make no sense to use the map local to San Francisco. This is true of your life, your visions, your goals, as well. Use the map local to you. DATES OF INTEREST Aug 04 - 07 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Hyper Focused - This energy shift looks to be a shift into even higher “Male” or “focused” energy than has been experienced in a while. For those who are higher in female/creative energy, this may not feel so pleasant, but it can be used to their advantage by taking on tasks that require this kind of focus. It may not feel pleasant, but only because it is unfamiliar, not because something is wrong. For those who are already high in male/focused energy, this may be a particularly sensual, stimulating, and eager time, with the body in a heightened state of reception for pleasures. This can feel distracting, but it can also be used as a means to sense the directions in which your pleasures truly lie, listening to your “gut,” and considering your happiness as a factor for choices. Aug 25 - 30 -- MAJOR NEXUS - Convergence - This may, or may not, be on an obvious scale, but it looks to be several days wherein parallels converge based on similar realizations on a larger scale than usual. We think this is related to global conflicts, but it could be environmental, as well. In personal terms, we think this would be regarding internal conflicts and indecisiveness regarding commitments, direction, etc. A balance would likely shift so that one direction or another would take emphasis. The more consciously this choice is made, the more likely it would be a direction that is of personal or global fulfillment. The more this is left to entropy, the more likely it would be in a direction of necessary breakdown and rebuilding. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER AUGUST: USE YOUR LOCAL MAP - When measuring your steps along the way toward an envisioned destination, it is important to pay attention to your current steps, not compare yourself to the destination or ideal. The more you pay attention to your local steps, the sooner and more directly one can reach a destination, all while being open to any diversions that might actually add to the depth of the experience. CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT - If you are concerned about a choice or direction, you must choose the direction you want. You know what you want. To pretend you do not know what you want is to presume you cannot have what you want. You will gravitate toward what you need no matter what you choose, but choosing consciously in a direction you want helps clear a path to what you need, as well. Even if you find that your choices are limited, choosing what you want from within that range can help you to broaden that range of choice.
  7. November 21, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand that you are interested in the “energy report,” so we will begin there. As we have covered the next several weeks in our previous reports, we do not have much more to add. We can more appropriately give you any specifics that have come up as a result of the passage of time. The next two weeks appear to be a week of contrasts. This is more elaboration on what we had originally termed “surprising” manifestations. In the next weeks ahead, there appears to be a continued energy focusing on high contrasts between what is assumed or expected versus the manifestations opposed to this. This is merely the manifestations of Martyrdom and Impatience, as we have elaborated on in your past. Anyone who has Impatience and/or Martyrdom can attest to the seemingly consistent stream of experiences that push the Personality in directions unexpected. This will be played out in its highest density of manifestation over the next two weeks, possibly three weeks, as the opportunity to indulge in these Fears is presented/created. As these weeks pass, it will be meaningful to most of you to reread the previous two transcripts with the Energy Reports for more details in how to handle these energy fluctuations. It can be said at this time that each of you will most likely NOT “escape” the energy moving through your plane, as easily as is usually the case. It seems most fragments are resonating with the exponential “agitation” that has begun to unfold. The Energy we speak of would be that of the “collective” energy generated among most human sentience at any given time. In many cases, many of you can evade or avoid these energy shifts and fluctuations as easily as you would rain, but in the weeks ahead, this appears to be more “stormy” than usual and it will at least touch your attention. We simply mean that each of you will most likely find some kind of contrast against your expectations to deal with that are fairly striking compared to your usual surprises, as well as more community and global levels of surprise. For instance, a well-known figure in the acting field has recently come to terms with going “public” about her belief and experiences of “reincarnation” and this will most likely be a focus of media for a while. This may seem to be a plain example, lacking fanfare, but this is what we are trying to convey through the example. The experiences appear to range from high surprise to sheer shock, depending on your personal resonance with the energy at the time. It could then be said that the next 3 weeks or so will have a Key Theme of High Contrast (Surprise), and a Key Resolution through Surrender. By Surrender, we mean to find ways to “enjoy the ride,” to observe with a bit of detachment as a means to find the humor and adventure in your life. Many of the “surprises” will just be humorous, as that is the nature of Humor, to contradict, surprise, and present paradox. A recent example would be in the spectacle made of the fragment known as Michael Jackson. We will now open the floor to questions. [sam_nemo] My reading of the Tao Te Ching and Bhagavad Gita indicates that results are more important than means, but Michael said another time the journey was more important. [M_Entity] And what is your question? [sam_nemo] Which is more important, the ends or means? Am I misreading the texts? [M_Entity] Both are “important,” but each takes on its own importance depending on the context. In most religious texts, the emphasis is on the END RESULT because most religions spring from a need to understand tragedy and pain. In that need to understand, it is easier to satisfy the more passive states of being human, by stating that rewards are at the end, and that as long as you get there, the path did not matter. This is helpful when one is concerned with whether he or she is on the “right path or not.” In our perception, there is only the path of Choice, so there is no “right or wrong,” only Choice. Our emphasis is a bit more on the means to create a path to your liking, because you will get to the “end” no matter what... you may as well enjoy the journey. The “end” never truly comes, anyway. Therefore, in the end, it is the Journey that becomes your “heaven.” If you choose to be an active participant in your life, learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn, then it is the Journey that will be of importance to you. [clairen] At what point in Gandhiji's life did the Transcendental Soul manifest? [M_Entity] A Transcendental Soul is born. It does not manifest in the same way that the Infinite Soul does. This is because the fragment that is “in” the body is already a fragment from the Entity being represented. There will, of course, be a regaining of consciousness, but it will not be as lengthy and troubled as a single fragment's. This is why a Transcendental Soul tends to be so effective and magnetic quite early in the life. While the individual is technically a Transcendental Soul, he still exists with a Personality that will have its challenges based on imprinting or ideals. In his case, he had an emphasis on alleviating the effects of Greed, which would mean he had his own personal fears related to this Chief Feature. His Idealism, at times, would lead him into naivety as he would assume that Sexual exchanges somehow “stole” from the energy of another, or himself. We remind you that while Transcendental Souls have a “higher” perspective of everything, they are immediately as susceptible to the confusions of being human as they are of the wisdom from the Entity. [clairen] Why did he feel so guilty about sex with his wife? [M_Entity] It will help to understand that Sex was the most immediate indulgence available for the Transcendental Soul to use as a tool and example of restraint against Greed. Since this is a common indulgence, it was more symbolic than literal in his experiences. [Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death? [M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike? [Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate. [M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment's death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.” Time becomes much more malleable and while some fragments will “immediately” seek the comfort and consolation of family and friends, others will “go back” to those hours immediately following death to offer comfort, but only after the fragment itself has reached some understanding of what has occurred. There is no standard. We can say, however, that the GENERAL way of experiencing post-body is through a process very similar to what you experience in terms of waking up physically. Most of you will have your experiences following death to be very similar to your experiences of waking up each day. If you wake up grouchy, you will most likely die “grouchily.” If you wake up “bubbly,” you will most likely die “bubbly.” If you recall your dreams more readily, you will most likely recall your lifetime as readily. If you never remember your dreams, you may find that a series of “dips” back into the lifetime timeline will be a form of review. Regardless of how all of this is experienced, most fragments are immediately interested in emotional rest, healing, and comfort during what you would call the first 72 hours. [essenses] Regarding the prophesies of the indigenous peoples that say as we come to the year 2012, time as we know it will shift. Are you aware of a shift that will occur that will be very different from life as we know it now, and if so what would the change look and feel like? [M_Entity] There will always be shifts and that which is indicated by Mayans, or any other ancient or modern group, are no more or less as meaningful or meaningless as any other shift. Some groups have a calendar to point out the date, and still others are as vague as simply stating that “He will return.” We remind you that your most recent shift in consciousness globally came on September 11, 2001. Previous to this, it was in August of 1987. These shifts in perception of Time or Space or spirit or matter are not rare, though they can be more or less subtle. [essenses] Are we entering a “golden age,” 4th dimension less density? [M_Entity] Probabilities do indicate a strong inclination for world peace and continuing explorations of compassion, if this is what you mean by “less density” and a “golden age.” [essenses] Yes, I guess so as that is what the predictions say. [M_Entity] It is a Mature Soul world, which could be interpreted as “4th dimensional,” if that is your terminology, as it is the 4th soul age. [Leela] Can you please comment on the origins of what is now known as “belly dance”? By origins, I mean both geographically/culturally, and spiritual; I feel that this dance is very powerful and meaningful. What were its original purposes? Is it true that it was partially used for childbirth rituals? [M_Entity] This dance has its origins from more than is considered now, though its more traceable roots can be seen to reach into the history of what is called the Middle East or Orient. We have seen this dance as being prehistory, being a form of varying forms of power during a period on Earth when women ruled. [Leela] Is this dance a form of energy work? [M_Entity] It was used as torture as well as mating, sexual stimulation between same sexes, and birthing. The more mystical meanings began to become associated with this dance many years past its true origins. [Leela] Torture?! [M_Entity] Yes, sexual forms of taunting were used to punish males. The dancing you recognize today could be said to be a refined version of its origins, with a focus on the more spiritual aspects as it relates to images ranging from Skakti to servants of pleasure. It has always been a Moving Centered/Intellectual Part form of dancing, as it is focused entirely on control, balance, isolation, and anticipation. Or an Intellectually Centered/Moving Part form of dancing. Those who of either centering are usually drawn strongly to it. It is less about the history that draws the fragments who practice it, as it is about the resonance within the body and the ensuing resonance with the Energy of the physical plane. For most fragments who begin practice this form of meditation, blockages within the lower chakras and the Higher Moving Center can tend to be “cleared” up, releasing a storehouse of erratic energy at first, then slowly settling into the balance it naturally would have. [oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps? [M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth. [oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent? [M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.” Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized. [Mike_Val] An Oxford DNA Scientist has stated that we have originated from seven women in a book called The Seven Daughters of Eve. Can we as a race, be traced to these seven women scientifically through our DNA? [M_Entity] No. We do not see validity to this. Though this could be a distorted interpretation of the fact of your Species being based on a hybrid of 7 different species. [chrisx1] referring to the comment on the last shift in consciousness on Sept. 11, 2001, when is the next shift of significance? [M_Entity] These shifts are never predictable, but they are able to be seen in terms of probabilities. The most significant shift pending in your timeline now appears to be in or near the year 2020. A great deal of meaning is placed in this configuration of numbers, and while there will be shifts before that time, that year appears to be a pivotal year. It appears to be the first year that two major countries will share a leader, or stand as joint leaders. If this does not occur literally, it will be a strong focus in the world as to how this will be implemented when it does become feasible. It is also the first year that the country known as Iraq may first become territory controlled by another country's leader. This is already an agenda of the United States, even if not intentionally. We will conclude now. Good night.
  8. May 21, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor THANKS TO MaryBV for Moderating and Transcribing! [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. The format tonight appears to be set in the “open floor” context, so we will simply open the floor and begin taking your questions as they come. You may begin. We do not have any comments to begin with. [MaryBV] I would like to know if there are any combination of Overleaves that cause people to be tardy for things, i.e., those perpetually late people. [Michael_Entity] Though there can be many factors involved, it is usually the effects of the “exalted” Overleaves that creates a lack of linear perception of Time. Ordinality is usually “closer” to comprehending Time and its implications, since Ordinality is more focused. This is not completely consistent, but it is a factor to consider. The primary Overleaf determining the experience and utilization of Time is the ATTITUDE. Exalted Attitudes can become quite “lost” in the restricted frameworks. Many who have an Exalted Attitude with a self-karmic situation to contend with concerning Time will create a challenge through the Chief Features of Martyrdom and Impatience. This will create the wonderfully-charged issues around Time and Space for them. We would think many would assume that the more exalted Roles might have “trouble” with Time, or that the more Inputs an Essence has, the more trouble they might have, but this is not consistent and is surprisingly more of the opposite. Those with One Input (Warriors, Kings, and Scholars) will have more trouble with Time than other Roles. Priest and Servers will be next, and Sages and Artisans having the least. Again, this is not a rule, but a reference. We have observed that those with one input are more likely to have trouble “multitasking” or “shifting gears” as they create routines and schedules to accommodate life. Those with more Inputs can gauge Time while they function on other levels. What we have mentioned in our response are just suggestions, not answers. Observe these for validation, if you choose. It is a place to start. [Nick] Is there a method that can be used to become more creative? [Michael_Entity] There is never a time when you are not being Creative. What most are asking when they ask such a question is, “how can I feel more alive?” Determining the context in which you are trying to specifically channel your creativity is a first step. This can be done by noticing what it IS that makes you “feel alive.” Therein lies the clues to what you may have “inside you” longing to take form. We believe understanding your Role in Essence is a good place to start. Each Role has a basic NEED to create and a default Creation. PRIESTS and Servers NEED to create Inspiration, with the Priest defaulting to Guidance in the Positive and Steering in the Negative; Servers with Nurturing in the Positive and Manipulation in the Negative. Sages and Artisans NEED to create Expression, with Sages defaulting to Fun in the positive and Turbulence in the Negative; Artisans to create Structure in the Positive Pole and in the Negative, Stricture. Kings [and Warriors] NEED to create ACTION, with Kings defaulting to creating Progression in the Positive Pole and Enforcement in the Negative; Warriors creating Cohesion in the Positive, while creating Protection in the Negative. Scholars NEED to create ASSIMILATION, with Transformation in the Positive and Consumption in the Negative. There are many words to choose from to capture the spectrum from positive to negative in terms of anything, but these words are accurate to their point. Knowing your Role will give you, at least, a context to get started in permitting yourself to FEEL the creativity that is “natural” to you. As with many questions asked in an “open floor” forum, we will only be able to touch partially on the vastness of what is possible to explore. [ShannonB] I'm asking this for a friend, so I hope I get the gist of it right. Up to what point do roles remain significant or cohesive? Do Cadres have roles, or do the fragments in them retain their roles? [Michael_Entity] Although the Roles will remain a part of Essence throughout an entire Cycle, Essence Roles remain meaningful only as long as there are attachments to the individual Personalities in differentiation. To help explain: Essence as ROLE is the functioning aspect of “you” that is geared toward experiencing division/resistance, while CASTING is geared toward experiencing union/surrender. Essence as ROLE will “think” of all of its incarnations in the way a mother may think of her children. This sense of regard for all of the Personalities experienced lasts through the Causal to some degree. Up to and through the Causal, ROLE will be a reference, though less and less. Upon graduating the Causal, (and even while experiencing the Causal Plane) Casting becomes your primary reference. Once an Entity is entering the Causal, the experiencing of all of the Personalities shifts to a far more united mind, so to speak. Once the Entity begins “thinking as one,” (again, so to speak) only your position within the Entity is then referenced. Entities do not have Roles, though a predominance of Roles does give each Entity a “flavor.” Your ROLE is what you came to incarnations to make “shine” and “manifest,” while Casting is what you simply ARE. To put it another way, you will find that you PLAY your Role, and LIVE your Casting. [JNelson] Michael has mentioned that it is one of their agendas to redefine the current context of the educational system. Would Michael care to elaborate? [Michael_Entity] It is not a primary agenda as we have come across in some of our channeling and channels, but it is an impact we have chosen as our context in most of our incarnations in other parallels as a Transcendental Soul, so this “spills” into our parallels as a nonphysical teacher as well. We believe the incorporation of comprehending the various learning natures of each Essence could do greatly in healing much of the intellectual divisions on your planet. Currently the schooling system is geared toward the methods of Scholars, Warriors and Kings, though the Personality Overleaves may concur or not. Artisans, Sages, Priests, and Servers have no means to learn in a way that is conducive to them. Because of their fluidity, they can manage, but there is a toll. We believe it not to be GOOD WORK to identify children as Roles and start them along an education geared toward that Role, but rather allow the children to gravitate toward and define their Role as they discover it, making all forms of education available in some form at least through the age of 7. It will be obvious early on as to what direction a child may gravitate. Currently, all education before the age of 7 is geared toward the four Roles that are then “left out” as “formal” education begins. We would be willing to outline our entire concept of this in a session focusing on this topic, but this is a glimpse at our basic premise. [Dewliet] Hi Michael – Since I’m due with my second child in July, I was wondering if you could give me some tips on pain management and/or other aspects of childbirth, including techniques and medication that might not be covered in traditional texts? [Michael_Entity] Most of these techniques and medications or meditations for that matter, have been covered. There have been many births on your planet. Ourselves, having given birth hundreds of thousands of times, found that chewing on licorice root relieved a great deal of stress during labor, while the pain was found to be surprisingly easily forgotten. You have medications now that we did not have, and while we do not wish to affect your choice, we do believe enduring the “natural” pain is worth the health of the child. Many children have been given birth while the mother is under heavy medication and the results are not conclusive or consistent, so this would be your choice to use them or not. In your case, we see your knowledge that it is a passing pain, however lightly experienced or difficulty endured, will help. There will be a “knowing” in you that will be calming. This is not a prediction, but rather a comment on your nature. If you look at most of your most painful and difficult changes in your life, most mothers can see a parallel in their birthing. In your case, regardless of what appears, you have a calming knowing that it will pass and you are safe. [Annette] I know that there are special cameras that photograph the aura, and I have witnessed and photographed pictures with shapes, shadows/clouds, and orbs in them 11 days after my father passed away. Are these guides or spirit entities and can you comment on why we are able to see them like this? Are they making attempt to communicate? [Michael_Entity] The Kirlian Photography is a special technique, while flash photography is simply flash photography. Kirlian Photography allows you to see the bioenergetic (etheric) fields of your body in much the same way that iodine allows certain photography to see into the body. In the case of Kirlian Photography, there is a high frequency, electrical charge run through the object to help amplify its energetic emissions. Any camera that is used to photograph the “aura” that does not include the electricity running through the object is simply an EMULATION or simulation and is invalid. They are the equivalence of a kaleidoscope, to some degree. In Flash Photography, there is validity to much of what is seen as a paranormal phenomenon. Much of what are seen as “orbs” are actually microscopic dust particles in that moment, amplified by the flash. When the images are valid, they are not necessarily consciousness trying to communicate, but rather energetic emissions in the environment. When mourning is involved, the emissions can be great. Much of what are valid orbs, in the case of mourning, are merely the releasing of energetic “pockets,” if you will, that allow the fragment passing to “gather themselves.” Letting go of someone is most literal in mourning, even if the fragment being “let go” is still incarnating. Though some patterns are a form of consciousness, most are not, at least in terms of guides and spirits. If a “guide” or “spirit” is able to be photographed, then it is not of Essence, but of Personality as it is attached to the object of interest. That would mean they are not actually guides or spirits, but more like “echoes” of living aspect of themselves. [Annette] How do you know the difference then? [Michael_Entity] Again, another topic that we will not be able to exhaust in this forum. In being able to tell the difference, if there is a consciousness involved in those terms, dreams are more likely their medium of exchange. We dare say that Spirits and Guides (as we know the term) do not hover mid-physical making pretty lights. [JNelson] Would Michael care to outline the ways in which various Roles in Essence learn? [Michael_Entity] In another chat or as a topic on your list, as the time constraints on this session will not permit. We will add, before leaving, that looking at the Needs of Creation we outlined in the beginning will help in seeing the different learning methods. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
  9. January 3, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel State of the Planet THANKS TO MARYBV for Editing and Moderating! Thanks to ANNE for Moderating! Thanks to ALL of you who came! NOTE: This copy includes some clarifications and editing for the purpose of getting more information from Michael. [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are present. We have been asked to address the “state of the planet” as we see it for your year 2002. Though a great deal of this will be extrapolation and probabilities, we will try to remain focused on the more contextual energies, higher probabilities, and how you can use or evade them. We will note here that it will also bear even more light on the effect of the Overleaves for a year’s time when you look at your past year’s Overleaves in retrospect. As we have announced previously through this channel, the Overleaves as they continue to stand for most of the planet at this time are: Priest/Discrimination/Passion/Pragmatist with Moving Center/Intellectual Part and the Chief Negative Features of Impatience/Martyrdom. The time frame of the year ahead will have the general context of Priest Energy and Moving Center. This means, overall, regardless of your ROLE in Essence, you may find yourselves determining your interaction with the world in terms of whether you are serving the Higher Good or not, whatever you or your Community Truths have deemed that to be. The ROLE and CENTER always set the foundation for the general context the world will be using as a medium of expression, inspiration, action, and assimilation. In this case, the year’s emphasis will be more on Inspiration and Action as the filter through which your life will be contributing to, or extracting from, the collective world. Considering the context of the Moving Center, this might mean that many of you will feel moved to literally take part in organizations, groups, outings, travels, activities, etc., as they relate to that collective “higher good.” This Priest-oriented year allows you to take a good, long look at what you believe to be the higher truths in your world and communities as you participate with, contribute to, battle with and/or create those very truths. In a Priest-oriented year combined with the Moving Center, you will find yourselves Physically manifesting what your own Compassion dictates, even if this leads to Zeal. Priest Years, then, bring serious examination of collective beliefs involving Compassion, Inspiration, and Zeal, and how you contribute to them, while a Moving Centered year will provide the medium through which this is all examined and experienced, either Productively or Frenetically. The Moving Center, then, creates a medium in the Physical Plane through your Body, your Environment (including your Pets and Plants you tend as part of your environment), your Physically intimate relationships, your Boundaries, Travel, Transportation, and Health. Of course, there are many more examples we could give, but these are fair enough. We will note here that ALL qualities of ALL Roles are inherent in ALL fragments in varying degrees, which the Overleaves emphasize or challenge in varying lives. Noting where your own Overleaves fall on their Axis in relation to the Cardinal Inspiration and Ordinal Moving will tend to indicate whether your own year will more “involved” in the world or not. Those who will be drawn into the “mix of things” of world or community events will first be those who are Priests/Servers and those who are Moving Centered, but those who have Growth, Passion, Spiritualist, or Saturn Body Types, and those who are Warrior, or in Submission, Perseverance, Cynic, or with Martial Body Types will play supporting roles in the unfolding of larger events, as well. The more your own Overleaves match these highlighted, the more “meaningful” this year will tend to be for you, whether in your personal life or in your experience of the world. In terms of high probabilities, we do see two “new” Priests taking the spotlight this year; fragments who have never been in the spotlight before, but are intending to play a vital role in the year ahead. One is an Early Mature Priest fragment currently living in South Africa, and the other is a Late Mature Priest residing currently in the North Eastern United States. These fragments have elected to take stances for peace that may or may not be implemented, but the effort and ideas will at least be strongly presented and considered. Some ideas are going to be controversial and upsetting, but most will agree it is time for these approaches, whether you do or not. Both Priests are Female. Interestingly, these fragments are not directly involved in Politics or Religion, as many Priests are realizing these fields no longer hold the respected stances needed for inspiration. We remind you that we are not predicting anything; we merely convey the current, higher probabilities, which contain as much possibility for change as anything Many of you will be continuing to deal with a familiar, yet uncomfortable energy as it carries over from last year: the Moving Center and Intellectual Part. Last year had much of the population in the context of the INTELLECTUAL CENTER, Moving PART, with as many in the Moving Center, Intellectual Part. This year should prove to be more confined to the specific contexts of the Moving Center and Intellectual Part. This looks to be a collective decision that “things DO need to change, but let’s THINK before we DO.” Last year resulted in a great deal of damage from those who were using the Intellectual, Moving PART as their force. In the end, the year found a great heaviness of depression and grief reigning as the Emotional Center energy was all but neglected. You may find the next year as exhausting on your emotions, as well, since there is little emphasis on the Emotional Center again. With the Priest Energy of the year, there will, of course, be a vague, higher context of examination in terms of Love and Empathy from the resonance of the Higher Emotional, but the results of that examination will most likely not feel fulfilling until 2003. So, once again, you enter into a year where the Emotional world could be left behind in favor of ideas, actions, and changes. Many of you may feel the impact of this rapid momentum of energy when it feels there is little time to really reflect before the next event is asking to be dealt with. A Moving Centered year moves quite rapidly in perception and this can be challenging to the Older Souls who are healthy participants in the world, yet wish for a “break”. 2002 will most likely seem to have pockets of emptiness and vague memory as many fragments “ride the energy” through the year in a “waking sleep” when they feel they have to. The Late Mature and Old Souls are most likely to find these gaps in memory, or find that the year seemed to have “disappeared.” These sensitive fragments are having a hard time coping with the world events as they are unfolding. Many of these Older Souls have already been through some of the most horrific carnage this planet has had to face in terms of human loss, war, and grief, so there is a great deal of inner repugnance, repulsion, and disturbance being brought up. “Learning your lessons” in areas of war, death, and harm does not make you apathetic; in fact it makes you much more “sensitive” to these very matters. Many may feel suicidal, depressed, angry, or unhealthy as they feel this intensity in the world currently is far “too soon” occurring and intentions for the life are being reconsidered for many of the parallels as to what to do. Those who genuinely do not find any benefit from remaining, will opt to exit within this year from the Older Soul community, or find magnificent, “magical”, “miraculous” events happening for them that tend to remove them from the collective events in some way. Though this reaction to the planetary growth is not limited to Older Souls, it is stronger in that group. Moving Centered years almost always bring a great deal of death in groups and bizarre disasters, along with extreme manifestations in the Physical Plane, for better or worse. For instance, more “advances and breakthroughs” in the biology and medicine worlds will be announced, with a great deal of emphasis on cloning, of course. This year will also bring to light some new, amazing modes of transportation that have not caught on yet, along with a marketable home robotic “maid/butler” that will most likely be controversial. “Terrorist” attacks will continue to plague the US and Europe, though primarily in the US where it will continue to be confusing as to whether these are related to the extremists of Muslims or simply domestic exploitation for personal causes. We do see a great deal of the attacks coming from “within” and being completely unrelated parties, with a stronger intent than ever to create a civil war. The first three months of your year are in the context of Discrimination. Last year had most of the year focusing on Acceptance issues, while this year will focus on refinement and clarifying of what you have discovered are just not acceptable at this point. This will be the year where more collective communication is required in highly sensitive areas where groups are standing behind their rejection of certain aspects of life and society. The first three months now will be in taking a serious, somber look at what really isn’t working for you in life, either collectively or privately. Most of this will be in the context of what work you are doing, how much of your energy is involved in your life tasks, and how your interaction with the world contributes, as we said, to the “higher good”. These first three months may seem quite rocky to some of you as the energy is implemented and stabilized, but by April, the intensity of scrutiny and defining of boundaries should be eased. Those who consciously work through these energies will most likely find themselves in what would seem to be a “better”, more sound place in their life and material world. Those who resign themselves to overwhelm, or are simply not interested in dealing at all, may find themselves feeling rejected, isolated, and on the fringes of a rapidly-moving year. This is not a rule, of course, nor is it a means to “scare” you; we merely comment on the general possibility of how fragments may react. April through June will focus more on the MODE of the year, and the Goal will have taken footing by then. This year, April through June looks to be the most exciting, volatile, and erratic as fragments find passion for will now start to be indulged in. When you reach the phase of Passion Mode, many will find this time to be where the emphasis is on your most intimate relationships and how “true and meaningful” they are in your life. Considering this is a Passion year, the examination will be on whether you are actually developing more of who you are by being in these relationships, or if you are simply identifying with that person and use them to superficially define you. Neither is good or bad, but the latter will be less comfortable in a year of Discrimination. Relationships will have their struggles during that period of time, and we would suggest keeping this in mind as you unearth all the reasons to remain with or leave your friends, work (coworkers), mate, etc. Try to remind yourself that by bringing knowledge to the surface about what you are getting/receiving from your interactions is simply an opportunity to clarify what it is you want and need. This can be approached, first and foremost, through communication. If there is no ability to communicate about what you want/need, then a more definite decision will feel pressured into needing to be made. April through June seems to be bringing with it a couple of potentially strange natural disasters or accidents, including a most devastating tidal wave to a major city. Humans are still not learning the benefit of keeping population down, and with the recent disasters, the Instinctive Centers of many are scrambling to create even more babies as a life-affirming act. This is not good work, but that is a lesson every species will tend to at some point. Until that area of responsibility by a Species is consciously dealt with, the Instinctive will always opt to leave a life, than to threaten the collective Species that houses Essence through a Cycle. When the population of a Species begins to threaten its own survival, then larger groups of fragments exit in more bizarre and unexpected ways. July through September brings some Pragmatism as the “year-to-date” gets examined through the collective Attitude, or perspective. Those who have created a momentum through the year in the negative poles will now take root in their actions with a severely dogmatic approach. If any violence between groups is going to occur on a larger scale, it will most likely be at this time. Last year found the Cynic Attitude coming to the forefront of perception, ironically from the POSITIVE POLE. We remind you that the Cynic sees the OTHER sides of whatever seems to be the obvious. In the recent tragedies and grief, a great deal of “love” and global camaraderie found its way out from the original denigration of a few. We suspect the same may occur this year, as those who are dogmatic will be faced with those who are truly practical in their perspective of the world. This practicality could create systems that work to appease even the most disgruntled. And quickly, the end of your year will come with the continued energy of Impatience (Intolerance) from last year, while Greed is now replaced with Martyrdom (Victimization). Greed cannot work this year, but highlighting all who are victimized and/or intolerant can work with the other energies being generated. We note here that the Chief Feature part of the year does not necessarily mean that energy will manifest, but that it may simply be the issues and fears of the collective that have the opportunity to be addressed. We will discuss more about these Overleaves as the year progresses, but we realize your time is limited with us tonight and we are here to respond to your questions, as well. We also realize we will not be able to address all of what this year has in store with its probabilities, but we can at least provide this basic picture. [nemo-sam] If you can see the future, then can you see the past the same way, if you are outside of time? [M_Entity] Yes, we can “view” the past, but it also has probabilities as much as the future. Depending on your current position within your life, your “past” may be a particular timeline that has elements which are NOT a part of your “original” timeline. Some of our Older Soul students may even have the unusual, but natural, experience of “remembering” TWO or more completely different versions of the same event, even within one lifetime’s memory. This can happen individually and collectively. Time, as it is relative to a Personality, is more like the Personality is continually at the hub of a large wheel of probabilities, with as many “spokes” behind as there are before. “Turn the wheel” and you have a new set of probabilities, past and future. [ShannonB] What is the likelihood of armed conflict breaking out in India and Pakistan this year (in this parallel), and is it likely that nuclear weapons will be involved? [M_Entity] The likelihood is quite high at 47%, though the use of Nuclear Weapons only stands at 13%. Though the conflict could be diverted, we have seen the probabilities continue to move toward stronger, armed conflict. The knowledge of Nuclear Weapons being able to be used is sometimes enough to transform a conflict into negotiation, but in a year of potential rejection, identification, and zeal, the odds are higher that someone, somewhere, will want to destroy, rather than compromise. [Annette] Could you please comment on the economy in the United States in 2002? Will we be financially affected by world events (negatively or positively)? [M_Entity] The economy in the US appears to be on a staggering momentum, creating a constant scare, but never truly plummeting. We see the next year as being similar to the past year, though a bit more intense and anxious. The US is “smart” in its collective energy and though the world may appear to be falling apart at times, a large group of Young and Early Mature souls will continue to generate creative, fun, and meaningful prospects for the country. World Events will actually affect the US in “positive” ways because the US will continue to try to work with all governments in creating a more global “village,” than to simply remain in power. This “global village” concept may make some fragments nervous, but the intent is not an overtaking of the world with a single leader or government, but rather a commitment shared between nations that is geared toward compassion, prosperity, and peace. [MajickKat64] What sort of further terrorist attacks are likely in the US this year, and in what states might they most likely occur? [M_Entity] We continue to state that the Mid Western United States are the most vulnerable. There is still energy indicating several large hostage situations, building bombings, and airline disasters. Fear, though, is far more powerful than a bomb, so smaller incidences to create insecurity and panic seems to be the decided method, such as the poisoning of a small town’s water supply. Though this kind of action would be contained and diverted rather quickly, it can be a powerful method to create fear. Even our mentioning of it could do the same, and that is not our intention at all, but this is how powerful these images are. New York City and its mass transit and strong communications are still vulnerable, along with Chicago, and San Francisco. Please note that we are responding to your question, we are not predicting. These events have not come to pass, nor are they inevitable. They are the probabilities that have remained consistent and we share them because we are asked. They are not shared to create fear. Some of you already know this information as your intuitive selves can feel the validity. [Leela] In what country/city is this tidal wave a possibility? [M_Entity] Japan is most vulnerable, though areas south of Japan might be more involved, along the coasts of China, around Shanghai. Alternately, India has a high probability, as well. Either would be created from a devastating earthquake along a fault line in the deep sea. [MajickKat64] Ok thank you, will you briefly comment on the success of the new EURO? [M_Entity] This is one of the more innovative and practical steps toward the sharing of resources and values equally. This is a mature soul concept that will continue to struggle, but only in terms of its understanding. We do believe it will remain and the concept will spread to the US, as well. As more and more of the world thinks Maturely, so will the unifying means of exchanges. In most of your futures, there is a common currency across the planet, as well as a common clock. We will also note here that a great deal of your most positive changes in the world probabilities will come from Early Mature and Late Young Souls as they are both still quite aware of the material world, while striving for peace and equality. Striking that balance as a move forward for your planet is no small task, but one that is helped along when communities seek to understand the proposed changes and benefits. Good Night to all of you. We will “flesh out” the report in a more comprehensible and useful way with Troy so as to have a reference for validation in the year ahead. We conclude here.
  10. March 1, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We will be working with you in Open Floor format tonight, so begin your queue. We will comment first on the question of ADD, Attention Deficit Disorder, and its variations: ADD is valid, but only in nearly 30% of the cases wherein a diagnosis is reached. In most cases, those who are diagnosed inaccurately are either Artisans, Artisan Cast, Artisan ETs, or with an emphasis of Overleaves on the Expression Axis (especially Artisan-related Overleaves). Another false diagnosis is a result of perceiving the challenge within a fragment as they work to reconcile the difference between the “normal” input levels and the expansion to experience more than what is “natural” for that Role. With that consideration, a Scholar, Warrior or King, for instance, can be diagnosed with ADD if there is an interest in Artisan experiences, Priest Experiences, Server Experiences, or Sage Experiences of processing the life or period of events. This can also be the case if there is heavy imprinting on those Roles with One Input Level from those with more than One Input Level. When a Role determines to expand in the processing of their perceptions, the process for the life changes drastically and this is sometimes deemed unacceptable by the culture/society at the time. For Artisans, 5 inputs is “natural”, but there is a tendency to “cut off” at least two inputs, so as to “fit in”. When this is not done, or the inputs are accessed freely in contrast against accommodation, ADD is then seen in these fragments as well. The 30% or so of valid ADD cases are exclusively Chief Feature-related. ANY fragment who is preoccupied with gauging their life situations to remain “one step ahead” of their Chief Features can be diagnosed accurately as having ADD. The battle to remain in this position is not based on progress, but avoidance. Issues that could ultimately free the fragment from the torment of Chief Feature are avoided through constant distraction of some sort from the moment. In addition, many who have valid attention disorders were thrust into adulthood far before there was a comprehension of the previous Internal Monads. Those who remain within the 3rd and 2nd Internal Monads suffer the most, while the incompletion of the 4th Internal Monad can bring on Adult versions of the same disorder. The Chief Features most vulnerable to this are Self-deprecation and Arrogance. Impatience and Martyrdom is second, while Greed and Self-destruction are last. Stubbornness rarely deals with this. Self-deprecation and Arrogance can be a complete distraction over self-esteem issues having the fragment constantly preoccupied with what others expect, seem to want to see, or might be seeing in the fragment, so the individual remains in constant “hyper-self-consciousness”. This is a clear enough response to this topic for now. We will take your queue now. [Kathie89] Do birthmarks or scars or moles indicate a part of the body that was injured in a past life? What work could the individual do to reduce the effects of harm in past life experiences for the current life? [Michael_Entity] It is valid that many fragments use a birthmark, scar, or mole as a “reminder” of past life injuries, but this is not a constant. Many times they are simply part of the dynamic of the current body. Detail is rarely considered to the extent to prevent “flaws.” There is nothing that is required of a fragment within a current life to prevent harm from a previous life. There may be trauma or Karma carried over, but this is not imposed. ALL interactions from past or future lives are invited in some way. If a fragment were to live its life without any recognition of another life, it is in the astral interval that the past lives would be considered. If conscious recognition of past lives is being brought into the current life, then the consideration would be in how to manage that memory and apply it practically. By that we mean seeking dialogue in dreams, working with an instructor, or simply “riding it out” to see its implications. [nemo999] Are humans now living on other planets? [Michael_Entity] Not that we know of; at least in terms of that sentience that is of Earth. There certainly are other “humans” native to other planets that you would identify with, yes. [MichelePriest] Three different entities have been suggested for me: 1, 3, and 7. While I would love to be a member of all three I understand I only get one. Any consensus which? [Michael_Entity] Through this channel we are not responding to personal information in the group chats, though we will include this response in the transcript. [Response: When a fragment is presented with obviously conflicting information through our channels, we tend to consider this an opportunity for you to discern the ‘truth’ for yourself. We can suggest these insights as a means for you to determine your placement: [Entity One is themed highly with a sense of PURPOSE, in that most from that Entity generate acceptable paths and initiatives for others or at least maintain a path that is apparently wrought with intent and meaning. Those from Entity One rarely question what they are DOING, but just DO IT, even if they are concerned that they might need to be doing something else, otherwise or in the future. They continue to DO what they are doing until they determine otherwise. They have a strong momentum. They create workable paths to accommodate the greatest amount of fragments to move through within a given period of time or to be left for other “generations” as well. [Entity Three is heavily themed with ENTERPRISING, in that most from that Entity are geared toward taking on anything skewed from from the acceptable “norm” and generating something NEW. These fragments, in general, are preoccupied with presenting to others a way of viewing life that is slanted and sometimes, veritably “kaleidoscoped”. Those from Entity Three are usually concerned with the “outcasts” and “eccentrics” of life, creating sanctuaries for small groups to find refuge, maintaining themselves as self-declared outcasts, or standing as an icon for “outcast” behaviour. We do not merely mean those who “feel” like outcasts, but we refer to literal outcasts that usually have very little ability to manage themselves in the current society. Though many old souls may feel they relate to this, it is those from Entity Three that tend to make variations of this work on an obvious level. [Entity Seven is heavily themed with INCULCATION, meaning that those from Entity Seven tend to be repetitive and instructional in their behaviour to a distraction, even to themselves. Highly self-conscious, most from this Entity are preoccupied with the feelings of others and their ability to feel comfortable and capable in the current life. They are usually preoccupied with what is most healing to those they interact with and what will bring the strongest lessons out of the current contexts. Not all from this Entity are particularly in positions where they feel they are “teaching”, but they tend to be looked at as healers and teachers even when they don't “want” to be in that position. People are generally irresistibly drawn to those of Entity Seven, even when the fragment from that Entity is in the negative poles. [Again, many from other Entities can claim they may feel similarly to these themes, but we are speaking from the angle of how you relate to the world, in general and consistently. There may be other factors in the Overleaves that allow you resonate to these descriptions, but this is where your trust in intuition and perception comes in.] [Anne49] I would like to ask, in how many lifetimes has MaryBV known me? [Michael_Entity] One. Mary BV will exist only within this time frame. The fragment who is now Mary has known the fragment who is now Anne 113 lives. [MoonSinger] Hello Michael, I've been wondering about how you do your teaching work. Do you have one “spokesMichael” fragment who speaks through all your channels? Or different fragments “assigned” to each channel? Does that fragment answer all questions, or does another take over if the question is more in line with that one's “specialty?” Or does the whole entity speak “as one” somewhat like the Borg consciousness on StarTrek? [Michael_Entity] We do assign fragments of this entity to different channels. This channel works with a cadence of Warriors and 3 Kings. The immediate assignment is based on camaraderie and past lives shared; a resonance, if you will. From there, a “circle” of Warriors and Kings spanning the Entity are then the “relay source” in accessing the Akashic Records, if needed. Further “within” the entity we have another large “circle” that acts “as one” and is the culmination of all that our Entity “knows” at any given time. Ultimately, we do speak “as one”, but there is still a great deal of awareness and recognition of our individuality, if you will, though nowhere near the depth that you know your own individuality while Physical. Channeling, then, in terms of our Entity, is a three-stage process, not including the factor of the Essence and Personality of that fragment “speaking” for us. [MaryBV] Please expand a bit on the other humans in the galaxy. Are any of these currently monitoring the Earth with intentions to contact us? Any information on these other humans would be of interest. Thank you. [Michael_Entity] Other humans native to their own planes are in the same degree of awareness and exploration as your own. There is only one group of humans that are not planet-bound, but the exploration is of a tourist-like event and highly limited. There is actually film footage that can be found on your planet of this event as they view your planet regularly. The humans that are not planet-bound have not learned how to communicate cross-species or to adapt to varying atmospheres yet, therefore they have always been confined to their tours for now. [MaryBV] As in a Club Med Earth? [Michael_Entity] In terms of a Club Med Earth, no, this would not be valid, though the joke is not lost on us. [Leela] Where are these other humans located? I mean on what planets? [Michael_Entity] We do not have an accurate term for the planetary system in which you might have a reference. Your astronomy is highly limited at this time and what can be “seen” is actually “not there” anymore. We can say these fragments reside near what has been called the “Horsehead Nebula” area. We will complete the session then. Good night.
  11. ENERGY REPORT December 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) DECEMBER finally comes with some relief from Impatience, the collective Chief Feature for the year, not because the emphasis on Impatience fades, but because of a shift into a more positive direction for how to deal with Impatience. For many, there has been a fall into Intolerance for the past couple of months, the negative pole of Impatience. Intolerance is the unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from one's own. In the context of Impatience, which is the fear of losing control of time, Intolerance shows up as agitation, anxiousness, dismissal, and combativeness against anything that seems to hold one back from a sense of progress. Impatience, like Martyrdom, emphasizes blame, so there is always “something else” that tends to be the reason for personal lack of progress. As older souls, that “something else” can be very close to home, so to speak, in that it may be your own history, conditions, health, a relationship, some part of the self, but it Impatience protects you from the truth of your having any part in the equation. This is not to say that the blocking of progress can be completely altered by owning one’s part in the equation, but that the fear around the blocked progress can be changed, and then clearer and wider range of choice can return. Sometimes progress is blocked or held up. That is part of the nature of sharing a world with others, and part of the nature of a self with so many nuances and facets. As with all of our Chief Features, that which is feared is that which is natural and cannot be avoided. Shifting away from fear is not a guarantee that what was feared will now be transformed, but it is a guarantee that your participation or experience will be transformed. Many of our students will now be aiming for Audacity, the positive pole of Impatience. Again, as with all of the Chief Features, there is never anything truly “positive” when still using a Chief Feature, but it is relatively positive compared to Intolerance. Intolerance is a locking into a position and holding fast to that position, which is often contrary to any sense of progress. Audacity is the blind leap forward into risk as a means to break out of the anchoring felt by Intolerance. Audacity is “positive” here because, at least one is making an effort to return to participation rather than being entrenched in blame. Once one has made that leap into risk, there can be a clearing of the head and heart, and then a step out of Impatience altogether. As November unfolded, more and more people started to shift into this Audacity. Stepping up and out of blame, leaping into risk, and hoping for some clarity and progress. This will continue over December. What this means for our students is that there may be a sense of calm returning, along with an ownership of any participation necessary for you to feel and see some progress without pressure. Impatience is born from the emphasis on pressure as a medium for progress, whereas when fear is not involved, progress comes as a result of participation, not pressure. Pressure is sometimes necessary, and it is an important part of the push for progress, but when it is motivated from fear, rather than participation, then it is simply defense and locks everyone where they are. So as December brings about a sense of relief from the pressures of Impatience, it is only through your presence and participation that your sense of clarity and progress might return. DATES OF INTEREST: Dec 01 - 07 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Decompression - relief does not always come in a way that seems pleasant. Sometimes it comes as a sense of depression, as a surrender to a confusing need for rest and distancing from the demands of life. The first week of December may bring this for many of our students. If you find that you are feeling down, distant, and not quite enthusiastic, with a confusing, vague sense of depression, you may actually be “decompressing.” This is a process of releasing all of the pressure built up in defense over a period of time, consciously or subconsciously, and that defense is no longer necessary. Dec 11 - 13 -- NEXUS - Convergence - over the past couple of months, parallels have shifted in a way that focused greatly on any permanent wounding that needed to be addressed, both personally and in the world. This convergence returns these parallels back “into the fold” of a greater range of parallels again since the wounding has been brought to the surface and can now be healed. It will continue to take time and effort for healing anything emphasized over the past two months, or over the past year, but a greater range of creative solutions and resources might begin to emerge in more cohesive and effective ways, both personally and socially. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER DECEMBER: CHOICE IS CREATIVITY - If one has choice, one has creativity. If one has creativity, one has choice. When you feel you have little choice, use creativity. When you feel you have little creativity, use choice. As long as there is no one, including yourself, actively taking away your choice or creativity, you can move forward at some pace that brings fulfilling change at a pace that is best for you. PRESENCE AND PARTICIPATION TRUMP PRESSURE - Putting pressure on yourself or others to fulfill progress is sometimes useful, but only if it is motivated by presence and participation. If it is motivated only by fear and blame, it actually contributes to the anchoring in time against progress. Keep this in mind for anything you wish to move forward in your life, be it a personal goal or a social change. Presence and Participation are other words for “be the change you wish to see,” so to speak. They are terms to remind you to move away from blame and into effectiveness. They are terms to remind you to move away from deadlines to being alive for the process.
  12. ENERGY REPORT November 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) NOVEMBER brings with it a continued emphasis on Impatience, the collective Chief Feature for the year. Short tempers, short circuits, short on patience, short on tolerance, and high on agitation, frustration, and even anger, our students may likely find November to be less of relief than we had expected. Within the final two weeks of October, many were reeling from the Energy Shift and the Nexus of October: Oct 10 - 13 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Wounding - the past comes up for examination by some students as they consider that someone else may be to blame for their wounding, and this may generate an explosive round of attention to these wounds. Oct 28 - 31 -- NEXUS - Divergence - permanently-wounded aspects of the self that refuse to allow for healing take on their own direction, potentially freeing November for a bit of relief. These effects have now come into play and are now the direction for how November and December will likely be themed. Though “we” and “you” will be in all variations of parallels after a Nexus, “this” parallel has come to be on the emphasis of the wounding, and not the relief. Many of our students will likely find themselves dealing with some form of physical struggle in terms of health, electronics, machinery, material stability, mistakes with profound consequences, or being in close proximity to those who are struggling with these things. Impatience is rising quickly among the masses in a way that is revealing decades of stresses on the system, both in a most-personal sense and in a social, political, economic, environmental, collective sense. We expect November through January to be “quite a ride” for Humanity. This is not shared to be ominous or “negative,” but shared in the same way that a stretch of road might warn that there are “sharp curves ahead.” Those curves are not inherently bad, nor dangerous. How one navigates these makes the difference, and knowing these are ahead, or present, makes a world of difference. Many of you chose to lock into the patterns of Impatience because you are “fed up with” patterns that you have ignored, or that the collective has ignored, and a great deal of this is coming up for examination over the next few months. These patterns reflect the part of you, or the part of the collective, that is “sick to death” of this or that. These patterns are often easy to ignore, glide through, or endure to some great extent for great lengths of time, but with Impatience in effect, they are emphasized like nails on a chalkboard. As Impatience is a matter of controlling Time, many will feel the pressure to deal with these things NOW, even if these are manifested in ways that seem out of control, using the partner of Impatience, which is Martyrdom. This is why the material world of health, stability, machines, finances, etc. may come into play because Impatience tends to trigger Martyrdom in a way that says, “if you do not do this now, faster, sooner, yesterday, you can die!” We are not being absurd or dramatic in our portrayal of how Impatience takes its toll. On the more positive angle of this, it is important to note that if you are in any way experiencing the effects of this, it is because you are done with a large section of patterning in your life that not only does not serve you, but has served to hurt you. You are done. You have had enough. You are ready for a transformation. Knowing this, it can be helpful to own this, and to let go of the Impatience that is pushing you. Any transformation you make has its own inherent pace. It cannot be forced, nor made to be faster or put in place retroactively. Take solace in the fact that you are dealing with it now; that you are owning it; that you are embracing a part of you that has long been affected by subtle or obvious factors in the life. It is vital that you nurture a peaceful pace around your efforts and struggles, and not panic (unless you choose to do so). “Curves” may be in the road right now, but you can navigate these at the pace that brings the greatest sense of trust and calm. DATES OF INTEREST Nov 01 - 05 -- ENERGY SHIFT - ANXIOUSNESS - Anxiousness is a sign that one is slipping in one’s capacity to trust something, particularly when one does not have a full sense of control, information, or comfort regarding it. We suggest that each of you remind yourselves that “curves” in the road are naturally difficult to see beyond, and that the key is in focusing on what you can focus on at the moment. Worrying about what is around the curve can make it more dangerous and risky to take the curve. Watch the road and bring care to your moment. You will make it around the curve. Nov 19 - 21 -- ENERGY SHIFT - RELEASE - for many of our students, a process of release may come into effect over these days. This may be experienced as loss, or as relief, but if you find yourself experiencing the release of something or someone, it can be helpful to remember that it is okay. That you are okay. That everything is okay. We do not mean this in the delusional sense of dismissing the consequences, but in the sense that you have the capacity to make the most of those consequences. Nov 26 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - a return of parts of the self who are willing to do the work of healing, bringing a wave of gratitude, appreciation, and comfort that can help to bring anticipated relief and sense of confidence and trust again. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER NOVEMBER: CURVES ARE NOT CHAOS - As you move through November, remember that not knowing what is ahead, what is around the corner, around the curve of life, is not a bad thing. It is a natural thing. One can only know so much, and one can only control so much. Your adaptability, creativity, trust, and patience are far more accessible and steady than any means of anticipating the future. When life brings such curves into the road of life, it is an opportunity for a mindfulness, or another level of mindfulness, that is ready to be sustained.
  13. ENERGY REPORT October 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) OCTOBER brings with it a move into emphasis on Impatience, the collective Chief Negative Feature for the year. For most, this is going to come in the form of emphasis on the past. For some, this will be a wave of nostalgia and a look at the past in comparison to the present. For others, it will likely be a matter of explosive release of wounding from the past that has not had a chance to come to the surface in some time. In either case, it would arise from a fear of time passing, of not being able to control where one is in time, and fearing that life is passing by too quickly. Though Impatience may be part of the prompt for nostalgia, this response is the healthier of the responses as it is a look to the past for recognition of the healing that has come from the passing of time. There may be some longing for the past, and some grieving, but if nostalgia stays intact, the healing is recognized. The more explosive or reactionary defenses would arise from wounding that the individual still feels someone else is responsible, with Impatience bringing out the desperation for attention and plea for help. Impatience is partnered with Martyrdom, so we would not be surprised if some students feel the pang of victimization as the month unfolds, particularly if any issues of controlling space come to be involved along with controlling time. For some, both the explosive and the nostalgic may be in the patterns over the next several weeks. In any case, if our students allow for Impatience to simply prompt them to recognize time as a resource for organizing experiences, then the reactions to nostalgia and wounding can be softened. Rather than longing for the past, the past is seen as being rightfully in its place as a part of one’s history, evolution, and healing. Rather than demanding or exploiting an explosive scenario of old wounds, take pause and let the experience settle back into the body in a way that can make some sense, find order, and move into a pattern of release that can bring healing. As October continues, so will the wave of intolerance and audacity that makes up the spectrum of Impatience. One way to counter Impatience is to practice listening to one’s quieter impulses, rather than one’s loud and demanding compulsions. Impulses help lead one in directions of Essence, while compulsions lead one in directions of defense. The quieter the impulse, the more likely it can lead one away from reactionary positions of defense. As October shifts into November, the extremes between intolerance and audacity will likely become more pronounced and move into higher profile incidences. Over the year, this has already been in place as power plays amplify between Mature and Baby/Young Souls. We expect there will be plenty more of this in the weeks ahead. DATES OF INTEREST Oct 03 - 05 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Nostalgia Wave - the past begins to come up for examination by some students as they consider the passing of time and decide if there has come to be any healing effects. Oct 10 - 13 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Wounding Wave - the past comes up for examination by some students as they consider that someone else may be to blame for their wounding, and this may generate an explosive round of attention to these wounds. Oct 28 - 31 -- NEXUS - Divergence - permanently-wounded aspects of the self that refuse to allow for healing take on their own direction, potentially freeing November for a bit of relief. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER OCTOBER: QUIET OVER RIOT - As you move through October and into November, keep in mind that quiet calm in response to panic, worry, and impatience almost always trumps reactionary rioting that only serves to escalate the very wounding that one wishes to heal. If you have a choice, it is helpful to choose calm.
  14. Michael Speaks Live Open Floor 9/22/2013 Channel: Troy Tolley [MikeS] Hello Michael, this is my first ever question. [MikeS] In our Young Soul world, the Michael Teachings for all its elegance and internal logic is not a mainstream philosophy. [MikeS] Would it be good work to seek a vehicle by which the Teachings could be introduced into mainstream culture? [MikeS] I don’t mean to ask that the Teachings should be dumbed down but rather that they might be differentiated to meet the particular needs of Young and Mature Soul students and especially children. [MikeS] Perhaps the vehicle for such an undertaking might be though fiction and popular culture? Or am I tilting at windmills? :) [MEntity] What we tend to do is teach our students, those fragments with whom we share Agreements, within parameters of their capacity for utilizing the teaching, and this continues to evolve, but what those students do with the teachings is their choice. That would include any efforts to share that teaching with those whom we do not share Agreements. [MikeS] On the one hand the teachings are so helpful but I guess they are only helpful to those who are ready. [MEntity] Our students can use the teaching to teach their own Agreements, or share their perspectives and philosophies in any way they see fit, or effective. [MEntity] Mike, it is true that there is a point at which one is "ready" for our teaching, and this will not be the same for everyone, and not of any interest to many, but this can be said of any teaching. [MikeS] It is interesting to know that you would have no problems, with the Teachings being used to fulfill other Agreements. [MEntity] We continue to state that your life, and your own implementation of any teachings that you find of resonance and benefit, are far greater in effect for teaching a teaching than the concerns for how to market it. [MEntity] The core of our teaching is in learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn. If we were to place conditions on how that teaching is used or shared, we would be undermining our own teaching of emphasis on choice. [MEntity] However, we can state that as there is a shift in paradigm toward the Mature, which is far more accommodating to the Old, there will come a tendency for the Baby and Young to find interest in all things "spiritual," and this has been growing in effect since the Harmonic Convergence. [MEntity] This is because all Soul Ages have to adapt to a shared paradigm as a way to participate in the world together, so it is becoming important to the Young and Baby Souls to understand the terminology, the lingo, the schools of thought, etc, but for very different reasons than that of the Mature and Old. It is a strategy for competitive edge for the Young, or as a way to enforce insularity for the Baby. [MEntity] If one were to market our teaching as a way to help get rich, build businesses, to positive-think your way into a better life, one could find a way to do so, but it would be a different teaching. [MEntity] However, if one were to wish to share this teaching in a way that sustains its integrity, it would be shared as it is, and with invitation. it cannot be shared very well with urgency. [MEntity] Our teaching cannot save anyone. We cannot claim to make life better. We cannot claim to have all of the answers, or to have a system that is better than any other. We an only invite you to explore with us, and we think that is an effective method for sharing as students, too. Our teaching, however, does lend itself well to fictional representation, and we do have students working on this with us. We look to have another "Michael" novel available within two years that we think our students will enjoy. [Jana_K] Is choosing of Impatience as a CF related to being pressured to do things faster than is one's natural comfortable pace in childhood? Is so, can you elaborate on this please? If not, what IS it typically connected to? I.e. as a reaction to what pattern occurring in childhood? [MEntity] Jana, that can be one of the patterns that develops a defense, yes. It will always be a matter of any lack of control over time. There is no universal symptom or pattern, but the core will always be the same: fear of losing control over time. [MEntity] This can come from the discomfort you describe, to being from the sense of mortality because of the death or loss of someone, to the over-eagerness to achieve. [MEntity] The most definitive pattern could be described in simplistic terms as "I do not have time for this, because of the demands of that." [MEntity] The most definitive pattern could be described in simplistic terms as "I do not have time for this, because of the demands of that." [MEntity] The "this" and "that" can be anything, of course, but there would tend to be difficulty in prioritizing because there would always tend to be something of greater priority and demand. [MEntity] This sense of diminishing time is reflected in the polarities, with Audacity and Intolerance, both of which state that there is simply not enough time for one thing over another. [MEntity] We would have to look at the individual with Impatience to see what patterns may have been specific to that childhood, but it is safe to say that if one has Impatience, there is a keen and sensitive sense of time passing faster than can be comprehended. [MEntity] There is much more to say to this, of course. [tkmppi] Concerning dementia you have said “it is natural for these facilities to degrade over time in the body, so it is simply a part of aging for many bodies.” Could you expand on this (for instance why would so many choose it). [MEntity] If one were to choose to go to the grocery store because one wants to purchase groceries, yet there are long lines involved in the process, it would not be fair to say that this person is choosing to stand in a long line. She is choosing to buy groceries. The long line is not a choice. It is a PART of this particular experience of buying groceries, but does not define what she wishes to do with those groceries, and why she is there. [MEntity] If one were to be born into poverty, an oppressed people, in a war-torn country, it would not always be fair or accurate to say that one chose to be born into those circumstances, because the choice may have actually been to be born with those who would help make the most of the life, and those circumstances were moot compared to that priority. [MEntity] If one develops and ailment that diminishes the quality of life for the body, it is highly unlikely that this ailment was chosen, but that choices made along the way had effects that contributed to the developing ailment. [MEntity] This is not to say that dementia or cancer are not chosen, but usually not in the same way that one would choose a favorite iced cream. [MEntity] The body, for now, comes with a limit in how much energy can pass through it as representation of consciousness/sentience. It, eventually, burns out. That burning out is not a choice. It is simply allowed as a part of the greater choice to have been alive. [MEntity] CHOICE will always have bundled with it ALLOWANCE. [MEntity] For most fragments, the following is true: You choose to live in this world in a body, and you allow room for the limitations. You do choose those limitations, you allow them. You do not choose war. You allow war. You do not choose disease. You allow disease. You do not choose pain, you allow it. [MEntity] This is mostly because one cannot control what happens to the self, but can always control what happens FROM the self. You learn from how you respond to ailments and disease. You do not choose these as lessons, but you learn from them because you can. [MEntity] So it is not a question of why one would "choose" dementia, but a question of what one can learn from it, if one chooses to do so. In general, that "lesson" tends to come as a cumulative effect of refusal to deal with many tangible issues of the life that reflect hopelessness or helplessness, and is a chance to learn to move back into a non-linear state of presence, absolute trust. [MEntity] In general, this is met with a sense that the past is a place of security, and this is explored, first, but quickly found to not be the case, and then the non-linear can begin. [MEntity] It can also come for many who were "strong" in the life, and eventually find that this has worn down the body and psyche to a point where others must now take care of them. [MEntity] It can also come for many who felt no sense of control in the life, and this brings some sense of control back through the obligatory care from those around them. [MEntity] In general, it is a cumulative effect of helplessness, hopelessness, which are allowed in the life because of other choices made. [MEntity] Again, illness and ailment are nuanced, personal, and cannot be summarized easily, so we can always expand upon this subject. For our students, we remind you that most do not actively choose the pain or the illnesses or the struggles in life. They allow them, learn from them, and evolve in the capacity for where choices can be made. [liiona24] Hi Michael, It is my perception that people behave in a more combative manner and really to strike back vindictively. I see this in my personal experience as well as the larger world (navy yard etc).Is this a result of people in general feeling more powerless? Or something else? I am not sure how to respond to people behaving like bullies. [MEntity] Are you describing the "navy yard" man as being in the position of the bully, or as responding to bullying? [liiona24] It seems like he responded in kind, passed it along [liiona24] Like he felt powerless and resorted to a gun and bullied others. [liiona24] What I am speaking about is people being displeased and immediately going into threatening to hurt others in some way. [liiona24] or doing it: Ie keying someone's car etc [liiona24] maybe I have been in a bubble but never have I seen this so much as the last 6 months or so [MEntity] In general, this is not more prominent in the world than usual, and has been far more pervasive in the past. When a destructive characteristic of Sentience begins to wane, it will tend to amplify before it fades. [MEntity] In addition to this, there are cultural levels of imprinting that are not serving the Moving Center in healthy ways. This is the imprinting of immediacy. [MEntity] The space between thought/feeling and action is presumed to be capable of satisfaction as immediately as possible. [MEntity] This can lead to a culture of reactionism, without rationale. [MEntity] For groups whose culture is rooted more in the Moving Center/Part, it is often plagued by violence and reactionary assaults, or Frustration/Freneticism. [MEntity] How you choose to respond to this is your choice, of course, but we can suggest that you first understand that this is not a growing problem, that it is a waning, but amplified issue, and that the culture of immediacy and/or Moving Center can tend to generate this as a form of "problem solving." [MEntity] From there, we can suggest that any act of violence, harm, or abuse is a matter of forgetfulness. We do not trivialize the scenarios by saying this. It is a forgetfulness on a profound level. [MEntity] Essence, the self, consequence, life, the future, the past, etc. are completely forgotten. [MEntity] You cannot do the remembering for that person. [MEntity] But you can do the remembering for yourself. [MEntity] Remember that there is more than the scenario, that there is more at all. [MEntity] When one feels the weight of negative or destructive and harmful events in the world, it can be difficult to do the work of remembering, and your Essence, self, quality of life, joy, are tossed to make room for the forgetting (which, literally, takes up more "space" within). [MEntity] Hold on to your own remembering as a way to anchor it in the world for others. [MEntity] By "remembering" we mean that you do not fragment yourself as a way to navigate the uglier experiences of life. [MEntity] We know we cannot solve the issues of bullying or reactionary violence stemming from helplessness or those with mental disturbances, but we can do our best to help you remember that there is more than this. [Maureen] Who is Mother Meera? It has been said that she is an Infinite Soul. Is she an IS or is she “simply” a healer or an enlightened being or something else? From Wikipedia: “Mother Meera receives thousands of visitors of all religions for darshan which she conducts in total silence. [Maureen] . Her darshan consists of a ritual, where she will touch a person's head, and then looks into their eyes. During this process, she reportedly 'unties knots' in the person's subtle system and permeates them with light.” [MEntity] This fragment is not hosting the Infinite Souls, but is a Transcendent Old Server (not Transcendental). The method for healing described is utterly honest in its point: that she is doing absolutely nothing; "you are." This can cause many to attribute the effect of healing to having been sourced from the fragment, but it is only themselves doing what could be done by looking in a mirror, or giving oneself the same authority over the body that is given to her. [Maureen] Michael - what do you mean by a Transcendent Old Soul? [MEntity] Many fragments learn how to transcend beyond any limitations or combinations of intellect, emotion, and action, but some choose to use this in a way that serves a larger, more public Task. [Maureen] Has her Essence "cycled off" and then "come back"? [MEntity] Transcendent Souls tend to be those fragments who are not defined or constrained by any limitations of emotion, intellect, or action, having the capacity to sustain a holistic form of Centering so that the spectrum of self is accepted. [MEntity] No, this Essence has not cycled off. [Maureen] Is this what might be considered Enlightened? [MEntity] Not exactly. "Enlightened" is relative. She is enlightened relative to many who seek her, but not enlightened relative to many more. The same can be said of you. [MEntity] Enlightenment is a process of integrating a philosophical structure that works for you. Once you are "enlightened," that enlightenment is now foundation for more enlightenment. [MEntity] We must conclude here for today, though we know there are more questions in the queue. Good evening to each of you.
  15. MICHAEL SPEAKS 091408 Open Floor Michael Entity: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a response to the first question. QUESTION: I can see how anger can be useful (to show you when your boundaries have been breached), but Cruelty would seem to have no use. Why does it exist, and where does it come from? Michael Entity: In the same way that Anger is a defense, so is what you might consider to be Cruelty. However, it is important to note that "Cruelty" is often a relative experience. "Cruelty" is often not an intentional by-product of someone's action or choices, but a fragment who is disappointed might assign the label of "cruelty" to the event. For instance, when one fragment can legitimately sense the necessity of a separation within a relationship, but the other fragment is deeply attached and terrified of solitude, the choice of the fragment to move on can be interpreted as "cruel," when, indeed, it was one of the most loving choices the other fragment might have experienced to-date. COMMENT: Oh, I see. I guess I was thinking of cruelty as intentionally trying to hurt another. Michael Entity: It is very important to differentiate the intentional act of Cruelty from the interpretative act of defense against disappointment. Acts of Cruelty are often not just the result of intentions to hurt, but can be the result of neglect, denial, justification, and apathy. With all of that being said, we can now more clearly respond to your original question of "why does it exist," and "from where does it come." The legitimate act of Cruelty, whether intentional or not, is a product of choice, of course, but a product of choice that is entirely self-preserving. Not "self-serving," but self-PRESERVING. There is a difference. Self-preservation is an act of survival and fear, whereas Self-Serving is an act of giving/receiving. Cruelty, then "exists" because there are a myriad of ways in which the fearful body, mind, or heart can turn for survival purposes when these feel threatened. Even the most intentional, drawn-out acts of torture as a form of Cruelty would still be generated from this very same thing. Although all Chief Negative Features can bring about forms of Cruelty, the most active, intentional forms of Cruelty can generate from Arrogance and Self-deprecation, and the most passive forms of Cruelty can generate from Impatience and Martyrdom. In terms of "Cruelty having no use," we would agree. Cruelty is an unnecessary byproduct of fear and has no value beyond the false sense of defense. QUESTION: Would you say anything about healing our bodies when they have been experiencing physical and emotional cruelty? Michael Entity: The response to your question might find more relevance on an individual basis, but what we can say in general is for any fragment who has experienced Cruelty, whether real or imagined, 50% of the healing would come from the comprehension that the Cruelty had nothing to do with you, or your value, your meaning, your worth, your choices, your past, future, etc. In short, it has nothing to do with you at all. Many who experience Cruelty, real or imagined, healing is delayed by the constant questioning of WHY. Most often there is no answer to this question that would satisfy you. The focus for healing would be more beneficial in the direction of HOW, as in focusing on your rebuilding, your personal compassion and kindness, and your support. QUESTION: Recently it was channeled I have a surrogate task companion because my TC is not available. What reasons would a Task Companion not be available so that a surrogate TC would need to be available, and could the surrogate TC relationship last across lifetimes. Michael Entity: All fragments have surrogate Task Companions and Essence Twins. There is a spectrum of reasons for why a fragment falls into unavailability, such as death, distraction, change of plans, lack of memory, lack of interest, lack of skills or tools required for the task at hand. An Essence cannot predict the outcome of the choices that a Personality might make within a lifetime, and often those choices are counter to original intentions for the lifetime. As the soul grows older, rather than generate Karmic Ribbons as a result from the impact of another fragment's choices that might alter your plans for a life, it is simply more practical to have a surrogate step in. Surrogate relationships do tend toward consistency and are usually drawn from the closer strings within your circle of support (your Support Group of 12). For instance, a 3rd String Knowledge Position might be your Surrogate Task Companion, and a 2nd String Love Position might tend to be your surrogate Essence Twin. If these terms are unfamiliar to you, Troy can direct you to resources for exploring that Support Group details further. QUESTION: Is it possible to run out of surrogates (if the surrogate is unable to be there for some reason)? Michael Entity: Surrogates do tend to still fall into some kind of mathematical resonance with you in a way that would be similar to the fragment for whom one is stepping in. It has happened to all of you here that, after the life was entered, "no one was around." Those lifetimes can tend to be surprisingly delightful or terrifying, much in the same way one might feel if one were to plan a trip to the mall, or upon arrival to school, and finding oneself in a complete "free-for-all." Those lives are rare, especially after the Baby Soul Age cycle, because the skills for creating a Personality and lifetime becomes an art for Essence, but it has happened to some Older Souls. QUESTION: I would like clarification re: the 9/12 "Trues". There are 9 Trues PLUS Life Task/True Work, but the 9 Trues are actually grouped in threes with the True Work to make 3 quadrates. Does that mean there are 3 different aspects to the Life Task/True Work depending on its quadrate, thus making 12 Trues, 3 of which are variants of True Work? or is it 9 Trues plus 1 True Work/Life Task? which would make 10 trues . . . Michael Entity: Both angles of interpretation would work. Technically, there are 9 "Trues" made up of 3 Triads of support for the Life Task in various contexts of "Personal," "Community," and "Planetary." The phrase "True Work" was a kind of shorthand as the original concept was delivered in a consistent way to describe the Personal Quadrate and was interpreted by some as indicating a separate concept from Life Task. However, it is valid to say that the Life Task can be described through various suggestions under a title of "True Work" and each could be more specific to the different Quadrates. In other words, the Life Task would remain the same as an overall arc of description, but methods of action for manifesting the Life Task could be described in terms of True Work on a Personal level, a Community level, and a Planetary level. QUESTION: so in a sense all 9 Trues combine together as supportive elements of the Life Task which is the summation of the 9 Trues? Michael Entity We describe the three Triads as each supporting the Life Task, but the ultimate pattern is one of progressive, though non-linear, evolution, or pyramidal evolution. Any system of 9 is a pyramidal form of evolution in our system, such as the 9 Needs. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Personal Level, the "base" is built from the Personal Quadrate, or Pillars of Vitality. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Community Level, the base is built from the Community Quadrate, or Pillars of Harmony. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Planetary Level, the base is built from the Planetary Quadrate, or Pillars of Transformation. However one "builds" or visualizes this pyramid of evolution, there will be tiers of development that eventually address all Quadrates. We have much more to say about this subject, but will move on for now. NOTE FROM TROY: Michael also shared this image for me as a way to understand this "pyramid," so I mocked up a copy as best I could. For some of the advanced students, note that the Life Task/True Works are Action; Play, Health, and Core are Expression; Rest, Spirit, and Love are Inspiration; Study, Home, and Gift are Assimilation. See attached image or the image above, if it shows properly. The image isn't static, either, but rotates as necessary or depending on a person's emphasis. [QUESTION]: How does serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, manifest in relationship to Roles and Overleaves? Are they caused by the Overleaves or are the Overleaves masked by the illness, until the illness is successfully treated? Michael Entity: No "mental illness" is caused by the Overleaves themselves, but understanding the Overleaves can help one to manage "mental illnesses." Most breakdowns in Personality however, when not due to any physical damage or developmental distortions, are usually Centering issues. COMMENT: I am going on the research that says these are physical illness. Michael Entity: Schizophrenia, for example, is the inability for the emotional elements of a Personality to communicate with one another, tending to be an Emotionally-Centered, Moving Part issue. Bipolar diagnoses are often the issues of Intellectual Centering, Moving Part. "Mental illnesses" that are diagnosed as being sourced from chemical imbalances are still connected to the Centering issues, and it can be a valid form of healing to use drug intervention on that chemical level to bring about a functioning that can then be sustained by the body in the long run. When physical damage or developmental issues of the body are a cause for a "mental illness," then this is usually a direct result of choice or allowance by Essence and is part of a greater theme of experience. In that case, the Goal is usually involved as the primary consideration, but is not the only consideration, of course. In all cases of legitimate mental illness, it is the result of breakdown in communication among the various facets of the Personality, requiring a third-party bridging for effective communication to be returned. There are a number of ways a fragment can focus a lifetime on issues that require comprehension of interconnectedness, dependency, and the importance for allowing help, so mental illness is one of those ways. Again, this is a question that can be more effectively answered in relation to specific individuals, but we believe our response here will offer some relevance in general. QUESTION: You have told earlier about suitable ways to meditate for people with emotional/intellectual and intellectual/moving centering. What about the rest: intellectual/emotional, emotional/moving, moving/intellectual and moving/emotional? Michael Entity: In nearly all cases for effective meditation, it is not so much about the Primary Center/Part, but about the Centering that is most often neglected. So an Emotionally-Centered/Intellectual Part, and an Intellectually-Centered/Emotional Part could both do well with a MOVING-CENTERED Meditation. Whatever your Centering/Part, you might find the most effective meditations to be in the realm of that third Center of Gravity that is not usually accessed. Moving-Centered Meditations can include anything that involves the Body, from taking a simple walk, to Tai Chi and Yoga to dancing the night away. Intellectually-Centered Meditations can include anything from crossword puzzles and brain teasers to such focused meditations as Transcendental Meditation, to good night of hilarity and comedy. Emotionally-Centered Meditations can include anything from a good listen to music that resonates with you, to cathartic expressions such as can be found in Primal Therapies, to night of tears and intensity at the movies. So a Moving Centered/Emotional Part or Emotional Centered/Moving Part can both do well to get out out the crosswords, brain teasers, or make their way to the nearest comedy venue. The point of meditation, in general, is to bring about a full functioning of all of the lower Centers, so it will always be most effective to focus first on that Centering that is most neglected. However, if one wants to just feel good and bring some awareness to one's natural, habitual processes, one can focus on a meditation that is resonant to the Primary Centering. Rather than compile a list of meditations for each Centering, each of you can consider this fairly accurately on your own: if it tends to emphasize the Body, it can be used as a Moving-Centered meditation. If it tends to draw up and emphasize the Emotions or feelings, it can be used as an Emotionally-Centered meditation. If it tends to bring about emphasis on the Intellect or thinking, it can be used as an Intellectually-Centered meditation. The difference between an experience being just another experience and its being a meditation is AWARENESS. When you are dancing, listening, or laughing, for example, bringing your awareness to the moment can instantly turn it into a kind of meditation. QUESTION: I'm curious about the "coincidence" of someone dying on the birthdate of a loved one; for example, my grandmother died on my birthday, and my mate died on his mother's. My feeling is, it's like a tip of the hat, a sort of spiritual wink, from one soul to another — if it's possible to generalize. Could you comment please? Michael Entity: "Meaning" is always the result of one's creating it, not finding it, or discovering it. Even when the intentions of someone is clear, the interpreted meaning on the receiving end can be quite different from those original intentions. When one dies, one will die on a day that many MANY will be able to claim as their birthday. With that in mind, we would say that when a person from your intimate circle dies on a personally relevant day, there is often an intention there. What that intention is can be very different among those instances, but we have seen that it is valid that there is usually an intended message there. QUESTION: There has been written and discussed much about that the mobile phones are overheating and making damage to our bodies when much used. There are of course also those that deny facts about any effect in one way or the other. How does the energy from the mobile phones influence on our bodies or the head when we use them? :call: :hypno: :) Michael Entity: Though the use of what you call "cell phones" or "mobile phones" is fairly recent in your history, we have not seen any effects of any significance that could be considered dangerous to the physical body, at least in terms of waves or rays, however some have exploded, causing harm, but that is a different category of threat, and minimal at that. The rays of your sun in one day can have far more impact in "negative" or dangerous ways than a lifetime's use of a cellular phone. The use of a microwave for extensive cooking can have more long-term damage to one's body than the use of a cellular phone for a lifetime. QUESTION: So the heat and dizziness some feels in the head when they hold it for a longer period close to the ears is minimal of distortion? Michael Entity: We base our response on the reports we can see relative to damages or harm caused by cellular phones, but we see none beyond those of the explosive variety and some cases of interference with regulators, such as "pacemakers." The heat is legitimate, but the dizziness appears to be individual reactions to holding up the arm for extended periods of time, or walking and talking at the same time. Other reasons can tend to come from the audio effects on the ear drums as many cellular phones can tend to have poor translation from device to ear. We offer our response as reflective of what is on record at this time, but we do not offer it as a conclusive report. The devices in question are undergoing a number of changes that will continue to require monitoring for effects. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  16. Michael Speaks: The Darkness Among Us December, 26, 2015 Hello to everyone. We are here, now. We can begin. We have been asked to discuss how one might navigate what seems to be the overwhelming "darkness" that can come from personal and collective events in your world. First, we will say that nothing we will say today will change the world, but what we can share with you today is a way to change how you see the world, and more importantly, how you see yourself IN that world. What we share today can help you to not only change how you see the world, how you see yourself in that world, but how you act within those parameters that are meaningful and practical to you. It is fair to describe the effects and forces in the world as "darkness," if that term is intended to describe a force or experience of limitation that challenges your force or experience of "light," or choice. In other words, if choice = light, and interference of choice = darkness, then the terms are fair. However, if the terms are synonymous with "good" and "evil," then the terms are useless. For there are forces that interfere with choice, and there are consequences that are experienced because of that interference, but these can rarely be simplified into terms such as good and evil, but the terms light and darkness are neutral. For many, the day (light) allows far more freedom and choice than the night (darkness), but neither of these would be considered good or evil, but simply more useful parts of each day and quite natural. We share this distinction because one of the first things one must do if one seeks clarity, effectiveness, and peace while navigating the forces of the world, one must resolve the apparent conflict between these forces. Understanding that night is not competing with the day, that the night does not swallow the day, and that the day can never truly destroy the night frees you from one of the first layers of intensity and stress that the navigation of life can bring. When you were younger souls, you may have thrown rocks at the moon to stop an eclipse, but you know now that you are safe, that there is a natural cycle, that you are not losing your Sun. As you grow older, the fear of an eclipse moves from the sky to your political and social arenas. You fear that the darkness is taking over the light, and your reactions are about as effective as throwing rocks at the moon. The truth is that the world will never be free of darkness, or "bad" people, or karma, or inconveniences, or destructive forces. But equal to this truth is that the world would be in no better position if there were no more nights, no more cycles, no more interferences to the broad light of day. What we shared here is the broadest context with which you can understand the dance between light and dark, between the forces that seem to benefit and the forces that seem to harm. You must have this greater context as a means to then focus more specifically on the details. Understanding this broader context does not mean permitting harm, but it does allow you to reduce the broad notion that all darkness is harmful. It is also helpful to remember that not all light is beneficial. Both darkness and light are neutral, and the effects, consequences, and experiences of these are dependent upon relativity, intensity, and proximity. In other words: your world would burn if closer to the Sun... Consideration of Relativity, Intensity, and Proximity leads us to the next important layer to explore in regard to navigating life/darkness/light. As you grow older, your empathy evolves, rises, expands, and encompasses more and more of life. Empathy is vital for evolution of consciousness. Without it, you do not evolve. It is impossible not to evolve one's empathy, but one can certainly stall or halt it for a while. Hand in hand with Empathy comes Sensitivity. Keep in mind that we say "hand in hand." Empathy and Sensitivity are different things, but they tend to be drawn to one another as tools for those who seek the path. Before one begins to evolve in one's Empathy, one tends to increase one's Sensitivity. Sensitivity tends to come from experience, and a great deal of experience that fuels Sensitivity is wounding. This is one of the reasons even an older soul will draw the line and halt or stall in one's increasing capacity for Empathy. This is because Empathy begins to equate Sensitivity equating Wounding. In other words, it hurts to care. What the older soul must, eventually, grasp is that caring FEELS GOOD. Empathy FEELS GOOD. Compassion FEELS GOOD. Sensitivity does not always feel good, but it is the tool used down the paths of Compassion, Empathy, and Caring. Returning to the concepts of Relativity, Intensity, and Proximity, it can change everything for you to remember that IF IT IS NOT HAPPENING TO YOU, THEN YOUR EMPATHY, CARING, and COMPASSION are not there to make you feel bad about or for others, but to motivate you to help. If you feel bad about events in the world, you care, your compassion is there, and your empathy is intact, but if you do nothing, or feel you can do nothing, or you make it about your sensitivity/wounding, then you will feel bad. 99% of what one feels overwhelmed by, upset by, angered by, frustrated with, etc. is not actually happening to you. This is not to say that you are not a part of the picture, or that you are not affected by events and forces well beyond your personal space, but that you are in a position that allows for greater choice and action than you realize or choose to implement. If it is not happening directly to you, then you can let your sensitivity lead you to Empathy, Compassion, and Caring in ways that feel good. And by "feel good" we mean that you can either make a difference, or acknowledge that you cannot make a difference. If you can make a difference, then make a difference. If you cannot, then you must trust those who can, will. For example: If you are overwhelmed by the mentality being fueled by the Young King known as Donald Trump, you can make a difference with your educated vote, or if you cannot vote, then you can encourage those who can vote to cast an educated vote, or you can focus on the trust you must extend to those caught up in the experience who are closer to it. If you are concerned about climate change and its long-term and short-term effects, then you have more immediate choices and actions you can take to participate in helping to reverse or alleviate the momentum of this force. If you are upset by the murder of a family by a father who "snapped," there is very little you can do to have prevented or helped with that scenario. If you are upset by a recent bombing that has occurred, or a recent mass shooting, you cannot always make a difference to have prevented these, but you must then decide if you can help, how you can help. And if you cannot help, you trust. If it is not happening directly to you, then you must consider if you can help, and if you cannot, then you must trust. And, finally: you cannot help everyone, every time. But you can always care. It becomes much easier to care, even if you cannot help, when you have helped where and when you could help. The world is neither overrun by darkness or fighting to sustain its light, but you are learning to care, and how to care without being consumed by your own wounding. When a Higher Moving Center or Moving Center are involved in a year's Overleaves, or in an event or person's overleaves, then the tendency for Martyrdom and Impatience can run high. The dance between Victimhood and Intolerance can be quite painful. There can tend to be more collective commiseration of frustrating world when these Centers/Chief Features are involved. When collective commiseration displaces collective help, the overwhelm and anxiety is perpetuated. Rather than add to the collective commiseration, you can harness your caring and share ways for others to help, if there are ways to help. When you share solutions, you increase the probability for your caring, and someone else's caring, to make a difference. If you do not know of any solutions, then asking for solutions can be as helpful as offering solutions. Commiseration can serve to bring people together, but if it ends with only commiseration, then the darkness of the world is not the concern of these individuals. It is their personal wounding that they seek to heal. If you find that you simply commiserate without any effort to help, then you are probably looking for help for yourself. And this can be quite a relief to understand about yourself. Because then you can get on with the more honest search for help, rather than the gamble of hope for healing through the pain of others. When you realize that it is your own wounding you seek to heal, you can then allow that healing. Not only does the world then begin to be brighter, but your load becomes lighter as you share it with honesty. So if something "bad" is happening directly to you, in close proximity, and with intensity, then you must ask for and allow help. We have covered a great range of concepts for our students to consider when pondering the overwhelming darkness that can seem to be in the world. Our intent is to help you to move away from throwing rocks at the moon, and knowing when and how you can make a difference. Because you do make a difference, even when you choose not to make a difference. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ************ Yes, Brian. Brian: What techniques or exercises might we use to expand upon having sensitivity, empathy, and understanding? BE ALIVE. If you are alive, you are already immersed in technique and exercise for expanding your sensitivity, empathy, and understanding. However, we will say that as with every other "muscle" that is increased in strength, there can be pain along the way. Those who actively exercise tend to recognize that there is "good" pain. In our teaching, we tend to differentiate Friction from Resistance. What most experience as "bad" pain is Resistance. "Good" pain is Friction. Friction is the range that includes challenges, difficulties, obstacles, and the coming together of forces against one another to create an experience. Friction tends to build upon itself, bring expansion and growth, evolution, fulfillment, and pleasure. If one can begin to consider the difference between Friction in life and the Resistance to life, then one can change how one expands in sensitivity, empathy, and understanding. You cannot avoid Friction, and you are almost always the solution to Resistance. Navigating your life in terms of gaining as much as you can from your experiences vs resisting them with anger, frustration, and evasion can be the difference between the imbalance of darkness over light, and the comforting balance between the two. Most of our students do not need to learn how to be Sensitive, but what to do with that Sensitivity. And we will say that Sensitivity is an invitation to make a difference, if you can, and if you cannot, then let it matter that you care. Let it be enough. There are other areas of sensitivity where you can make a difference. You can always care, even if you cannot help. Next, Rosario. Rosario: Hello Michael. I think your answer to Brian's question applies also to mine: how would be the process from "darkness" to "light" in children/people recruited by ISIS militants? First, those who have been recruited would need to want to move away from that "darkness" and into "light." If they have been recruited through brainwashing by choice, then they have determined that there are solutions to their pain in what you describe as "darkness." When someone is brainwashed by choice, the only thing that can make a difference for that individual tends to be in the presentation of even more effective relief from their pain. In those cases, education, information, opportunity, etc. tend to be the means by which one can move from a darker place to a lighter place, if you will. When someone is recruited through mindfuck, then intervention tends to be necessary. Mindfuck is karmic and compelling, so even when intervention is offered, the person may reject the help. You may or may not have the means through which to help those who are recruited through brainwashing or mindfuck, but both require clear paths of information, addressing of pain and needs, and options for solutions. Those who are recruited entirely by conscious choice fall into the brainwashing category in terms of what would be necessary for help in expanding their choices and inviting different actions from them. Rosario: I see. Keep in mind that many who are labeled as "terrorists" are often just crude versions or reflections of greater superpowers who have become more refined at the same behaviors and actions in the world. The line is rarely distinct in the greater scheme of things. Next, Sevemanalo Sevemanalo: I'm wondering how what you've said today on light/darkness, can be applied to social justice work such as anti-racism work or youth rights? It can be applied in terms of doing what you can if you are able to help "from the outside," and allowing help if you are on "the inside." If you are directly affected by racism, then you must allow help, and if you are not directly affected by racism, but care, then you can help by asking how you can help, and listening to what help is needed. In cases where racism is addressed, it is vital that the request for help is seen as a strength, and that the offer of help is formed through listening to the requests. Next, PaulyBoy PaulyBoy: Hi Michael Entity. Most of us probably have some family or extended family member who is wrapped up in "Trump Mentality." To quote from earlier: "If you are overwhelmed by the mentality being fueled by the Young King known as Donald Trump, you can make a difference with your educated vote, or if you cannot vote, then you can encourage those who can vote to cast an educated vote, or you can focus on the trust you must extend to those caught up in the experience who are closer to it." How might we approach "encouraging those who can vote to cast an educated vote" when topics of "religion and politics" are often off the table when talking with family at gatherings? How might we approach this in a way where we might actually "get through" to some folks, and not just alienate them? Is this a matter or just letting them "make their mistakes" or "having their experiences and consequences?" and there's only so much we can do? Or do we have to let "them" come to "us," like you have to wait for the question to be asked? Wearing political-messaging t-shirts seems likely to provoke a fight without much of a discussion... I seem to be having some trouble with the question, so I hope the question is coming through, even if it somewhat conflicted and confused inside of me. "Gentleness, healing, song, and story" just came to me, and "be an example." I'm not sure if that was you or me or something else there. Maybe I just answered my own question for me. None the less, I am curious what your extended thoughts are on "reaching out" to folks in the Trump Mentality. Thanks! You can only invite education and choice; you cannot force or impose these things. We have learned this, ourselves, by working with all of you over the past 5,000 years. If you can have a conversation, then have the conversation. If you cannot, then you cannot. PaulyBoy: That is so simple it makes sense, even if I'm making a funny face and cracking up But the most effective way you can communicate in those instances is to A) know your facts B) reduce your reactions, and C) to offer the insight, not presume it should already have been gained. If you cannot pull off all three of these, your effectiveness diminishes relative to the strength of these three keys. PaulyBoy: Ooo, that last one really stuck out (not presume it should already have been gained. We are losing focus through Troy tonight and must conclude here. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
