OMW - Sep 16, 2012 - The Circuitry of Overleaves Channel: Troy Tolley (Note: The Overleaf Map is referenced in this transcript.) [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin discussion on the topic of choice. Though the Overleaves function as a whole, they do function in a similar way to how one might understand how the body works. The body works as a whole, but, depending upon circumstances, various parts are of emphasis, serving the whole. Understanding your body as a network of circuitry, all entwined in a way that is inseparable, but distinct in parts, is much the same way that your Overleaves can be understood. What we will discuss, first, is the broader types of circuitry, and then move more into your variations. We are using the term "circuitry" here for this workshop, but we do not mean to imply it as a permanent term within our teaching. It is simply a way to visualize this topic. We have shared a bit about contextual circuitry in previous exchanges with our students, and we will review those, first. The Personality always leads with one Overleaf, however swiftly the circuitry is ignited to cascade throughout the rest of the Overleaves. In various circumstances and contexts, various Overleaves will lead. Those with higher Frequencies may find their circuitry "faster" than those with lower Frequencies. CONTEXTUAL CIRCUITRY The Contextual Circuitries are: PROJECT, SOCIAL, INTIMACY, and MEDITATION. These are fairly straightforward in correlation: When one is working on a project, the Personality will tend to lead with the GOAL. When one is in a social setting, one tends to lead with the ATTITUDE. When one is seeking or nurturing Intimacy, one tends to lead with the MODE. When one is in any state of meditation, one tends to lead with the Centering. This is fairly easy to validate, as well. Consider these contexts in the workplace, for instance. When a project is the priority, one will tend to find one's Goal is challenged and/or fulfilled. When one is socializing, one may find that one's perceptions, philosophy, Attitude are challenged or highlighted. When one finds any eventual bonding, it is usually secured by the Mode. When pondering any of this, the Centering is activated. It will not matter what the project is, if your Goal is Acceptance, you may find that your capacity for Acceptance is challenged and/or fulfilled. It will not matter the social situation, you may find your Spiritualism challenged, revealed, and/or highlighted. And so on. Those are the Contextual Circuits. We will get to how the Body Type, Role, Casting, and Chief features get involved. Before we move on, do each of you find a sense of validation for these contexts? Do you have any questions? [Bobby] Yes, and not yet for me [ClaireC] Ditto [Maureen] yes -- I have a sense of validation for these contexts [MariLynn] moreorless... [GeraldineB] So, far those make pretty good sense -- especially Mode -- my relationships do tend to be more in observation mode, wait and see, few strong emotions (often in surveillance) [Janet] Yes, but I have trouble imagining how my Power mode works (or doesn't work) for Intimacy [MEntity] Janet, keep in mind that Power Mode is about Being Present. It is an Expressive Overleaf, not an action, so it will be about making your presence known in some way. [Janet] I keep forgetting that. Thanks. [MEntity] It is about owning your presence, being comfortable in your skin, "being yourself." [Janet] The names of the overleaves sometimes give first impressions that aren't necessarily accurate [MEntity] In other words, how you might evolve intimacy is in how much of "you" can be present, be permitted, allowed, without shame, silencing, etc. [Maureen] Observation for me -- when I am intimate means yes -- I can truly "see" you. [AnnH] So I would expect others to "see" me? [MEntity] Ann, was that a question about Observation? [MariLynn] thank you. well clarified. [AnnH] Yes [MEntity] Then, yes. For Observation to foster intimacy, each is expected to be willing to "see," to truly see one another. As an aside, for another discussion, for intimacy to be fulfilling, it is key that one understand the Mode, as this gives insight into how you relate, and what you may expect of one who is growing closer to you. [MariLynn] I have a similar question-hard to see how aggression mode bodes well for intimacy! [MEntity] For you, MariLynn, Aggression is an exalted action Overleaf. Aggression evolves intimacy by way of constant change, movement, activity, progress. One must be able to "keep up." Intimacy is nearly impossible with someone who might wish to slow you down, tame you, or fault you for constant change of focus and directions. The Mode also describes what is expected of others, as well, as a means of relating. [MariLynn] yes! and it's been hard to find a partner who can, or wants to [MariLynn] omg, yes!! concur!! [MEntity] MariLynn, that is okay, or, at least, can be "okay." It is a "King" Overleaf, and is not intended to foster superficial intimacy and relationships. In addition to this for Observation, Sages inherently NEED to be seen, so Observation compounds the necessity for it. [MariLynn] is this also true to a large extent if someone is sage casted? [Diane_HB] I often notice myself using Observation in social situations, not necessarily Pragmatism. [MEntity] Diane, keep in mind that Observation Mode is not literal observation. You may find yourself observing others, but this is Pragmatic for you. [Diane_HB] I see [MEntity] Keep in mind that Pragmatism is a philosophy, a filter on reality. In a social situation, that will either manifest as being Practical, in your actual expression of self, in your exchanges, and in your evaluation of the worth of those exchanges, or as Dogma, stuck in routines that you have learned as a way to filter people out. [Janet] Clearly we need that future discussion about modes and intimacy. [Janet] And maybe one about social situations and attitudes. [MEntity] Dogma may show up as an inflexibility in what you find worth talking about, if you talk at all. Many with Pragmatism will be those who walk into a social situation, and then quietly, eventually, exit and wonder why the attempt was even made. Continuing. [Diane_HB] Thank you, that makes sense [MEntity] If there is a leading overleaf, then there would be a second, third, etc. in the circuit. [Bobby] Is this leading overleaf indicative of which one developed first in the life? [MEntity] Bobby, no. Centering is always developed first, in that case. It becomes the Meditative context of the life, then. [Bobby] I think what I may be referring to is for example, K's daughter, you've stated that a certain overleaf was turned on first... [MEntity] That would be one's core overleaf, and we will discuss that, next. [Bobby] lol... ok [Diane_HB] I thought the centering wasn't fixed until the 2nd IM, or are those different things? [MEntity] That would be correct, Diane, except that Centering is habitual, not fixed. The Overleaves are always present, even from birth, but until a fragment is approximately 7 years old, the Personality tends to be reflective of the caretakers, not the actual overleaves. However, Centering tends to be activated upon mobility, and habitual at the close of the 2nd Internal Monad. [Diane_HB] I see [MEntity] The sequence of the Contextual Circuit would tend to be dependent upon the expectations or intentions that are fueling or distracting the leading Overleaf. For instance, to fulfill a Project, the Goal will lead, but if that Project is one that is for the sake of Relating, then the Mode might be secondary; or if it requires a lot of discussion and sharing, the Attitude may be secondary. If it is done alone, it may be from the Meditative Centering. This secondary part of the circuit is vital for how the leading part is sustained in a Positive or Negative Pole. For example, if you are obligated to a Project, the Goal will still lead, and if you are not "into it," you may distract yourself with your Attitude, or more Social contexts. If you are evolving Intimacy, but your Projects are, ultimately, what you feel defines you, then you may be leading with your Mode in that relationship, but your Goal will draw you away from the intimacy. Circuitry is always shorted out by dishonesty. By "dishonesty" we mean it in a fairly clear way: that one is denying a truth by cloaking it. For example, if you are obligated to a Project, it may be true that you are not "into it," but distract yourself with social contexts as a way to avoid that truth. Honesty would either not do the project, or it would call upon the social context as support, not distraction. When a "circuit" is weakened, so to speak, the Chief Features come into play. Can each of you think of examples for yourself? Do you understand this path of circuitry? [Bobby] and others even [GeraldineB] I can remember instances, but I got a lot better quite a few years ago about not committing to something I had no intention of doing [AnnH] I think this happens constantly for me. [AnnH] Since just about everything is "supposed" to be a social context for me. [MariLynn] omg.....I DEFINITELY am in this right now. my 'project' is my obligation to be my father's FT caregiver [MariLynn] and, I am NOT into it. [Janet] Yes I see this. Work projects are often forced by circumstances rather than personal desires. But I can see this effect in past relationships as well. [Maureen] I would rather burn myself out -- rather than not complete something I`ve committed to -- which is another problem! [MariLynn] and, I can see this whole pattern as you've described....incl. the CF's have come up....esp. today [Diane_HB] I used to do this A LOT but have gotten better at being aware of it now. [MariLynn] ditto Maureen! [AnnH] From reading this, I realize in my 20s my goal was career and not so much social. [Maureen] ...which inherently shows a dishonesty with myself -- not good! [MariLynn] another ditto [MEntity] We are not speaking only to projects, but to relationships, social contexts, with secondary distractions or fuel, etc. We ask if you can see how this circuitry is at work in various contexts? [GeraldineB] I've learned to take the flack for saying "no" [Janet] Definitely can see it in all contexts. [MEntity] Even in your Meditative contexts. Can you not find your "center" because you are distracted with projects, relationships, etc? [ClaireC] Yes, Michael, and particularly how the CF's come in. [Janet] Yup. [Bobby] yes [MariLynn] yes [AnnH] yes [GeraldineB] yes [MEntity] The easiest way to determine if your circuitry, regardless of context, is weakened, is the question of whether you are DISTRACTED or ENTHUSIASTIC. [Janet] Oh! Good one! I see that right off. [MEntity] Enthusiastic here is not meant as prancing in pom poms and a perma-grin, but simply a "looking forward." [Maureen] yes! (sorry ...I couldn't find my centering!) [Maureen] [GeraldineB] and for Distracted, I would say caught up in the "should" or "ought to" mode of thinking [Maureen] (...that was a joke!) [MEntity] Maureen, we know. [Maureen] LOL [GeraldineB] LOL [AnnH] Yes, G. Very much. [MEntity] Geraldine, that is fair, but the "should" or "ought to" would not be the distraction; it would be what the distraction tried to avoid or ignore. [AnnH] Ah! [GeraldineB] which is . . .I don't want to do this and will PROCRASTINATE to NOT do it [AnnH] I often feel a lot of "I don't want to." [AnnH] Heh, psych [MEntity] There are plenty of "shoulds" and "ought to's" that are important and valid responsibilities, but distractions can make them difficult to fulfill. [Janet] I think of my life in terms of whether I'm bored or not bored. I see correlation to distracted or enthusiastic. [MEntity] That would be fair, Janet, as boredom is a lack of presence and connection to Essence. If Essence is put at a distance, boredom tends to be a result. Often, when one is not enthusiastic, one shuts down the resonance to Essence. We think that each of you see this clearly enough to benefit from the use of it in your choices and contexts, if you choose to apply this insight. We will add here that if one is looking at the Meditative Circuit, it is beneficial to understand that this is the first of the Overleaves to be activated and sustained, even if it is changeable and habitual. Centering will always go back to a more precognitive state of being, and therefore, is a context of innocence. In other words, when one seeks to find his "centering," or to meditate on his life, it is a return to innocence. Techniques and methods are helpful for the meditative state and circuitry, but this circuit is the context in every instance when you are alone. This is why aloneness is vital for the health of any Essence or Personality. Though aloneness is given a bad name in modern, highly-populated and dense societies, it is vital. Every time you are alone, you are leading with Centering, and that is supported or undermined by your distractions or enthusiasms. [AnnH] I am sorry to make this all about me, but I find that emotional centering makes it difficult to get things done when I don't "feel" like it. [MariLynn] I agree Ann [Diane_HB] I'm intellectually centered and I still can't get things done when I don't feel like it [MEntity] So to help heal or strengthen the circuitry of your Meditative context, your return to innocence, it can be as simple as fostering enthusiasm as the secondary circuit. This is a simple circuitry to address: For those who are Emotionally-Centered, there tends to be a necessity to foster or allow enthusiasm for Relationships, or The Mode, as the secondary circuit. For those who are Intellectually-Centered, there tends to be a necessity to foster or allow for Social and philosophical interactions, or the Attitude. For those who are Moving-Centered, there would tend to be a necessity for fostering enthusiasm, or allowing, for Projects to be fulfilled. In other words, the Emotionally-Centered can look at her Mode for how to relate to the self when alone. The Emotionally-Centered must be able to relate to herself as a means to be centered. [Maureen] What do you mean by: ``The Emotionally-Centered must be able to relate to herself as a means to be centered.` [MEntity] The Intellectually-Centered can look to her Attitude for how to interpret her life, how to interpret her place in society, as a means to return to her innocence and centered state. [Maureen] in general or something specific? [MEntity] Maureen, those who are emotionally-centered, when the Meditative circuit is weakened, can tend to wait or want for external inspiration to bring them back into a strengthened circuit of meditation and centeredness. [Maureen] I see [MEntity] They must find themselves to be inspiring again, to relate to themselves again. That is all that "relating" means: being inspired. [Maureen] ..and can look for distractions through other people? [MEntity] Maureen, yes, the Emotionally-Centered can often think that if the right relationship would come along, all would be well with the self. They are most prone to co-dependence. They can be distracted with relationships, which take them away from themselves, their centeredness, their innocence. When the Meditative circuit is weakened, it can greatly affect how the life is digested, how you see and experience yourself, and how divided or fractured you are within. Do each of you find resonance with this insight into these circuits, so far? [Bobby] yes [AnnH] Yes, sort of. [ClaireC] Very much so. [GeraldineB] yes -- it just doesn't "stick" with me -- it makes sense for the moment [Diane_HB] yes [Maureen] yes [AnnH] There's an intellectual resonance, but I can't really get a hold of it. [MariLynn] yes [MEntity] To help it "stick" with you, we suggest carrying with you the simple navigation between Distraction and Enthusiasm. The rest can be put into place after that. We have described contextual circuitry, which changes in any given situation, but there is also a Core Circuitry. CORE CIRCUITRY This is how your Overleaves network when not being led by a context. Though not an exact accuracy in all cases, it is easiest to assess your Core Overleaf by looking at how your various Essence and Overleaf patterns fall in the system. Looking at the "map" that Troy has shared with you, note where your known Overleaves fall. Include your Essence, Casting, Soul Age, and Level in your count. [MariLynn] do you mean what axis is most dominant? [MEntity] Your final assessment would be the count of how many fall into Inspiration, Expression, Action, or Assimilation. MariLynn, yes. [MariLynn] ok. that's what I thought [MEntity] Through a Sage, we can tend to be "wordier" than necessary, though we try to be succinct. [Bobby] lol [Maureen] LOL [Maureen] actually Michael -- that was pretty succinct! [MEntity] Do not include your Chief Negative Features. And only your Primary Centering. [GeraldineB] Michael was peeking again [Diane_HB] how about body types? [MEntity] Only the Primary [MariLynn] I didn't get the map but I have another chart....however what does old soul tend to fall into, ie. what axis? [MEntity] That would be Expression, MariLynn. Share your dominant Axis when you are ready. If you find that there is a tie among them, we will address that, too. [Maureen] I am 2-2-2-2- Michael [AnnH] Assimilation [Janet] Heavy on Expression axis; hardly any in the others (2-6-1-0) [Bobby] Action, followed by Inspiration [MEntity] We are unclear as to the numerical references, so we suggest either clarifying, or simply sharing the dominant, or tied, Axis or Axes. [Maureen] I am even across the board Michael [Diane_HB] I have 3 in Assimilation and 2 in all other axes [MariLynn] I am super dominant expression (5) 3 ins., 3 action and NO assimilation....no wonder I'm on disability!! [GeraldineB] I have big numbers 5s & 6s [MEntity] There should be 9 elements considered in your assessment: Role, Casting, Soul Age, Level, Goal, Mode, Attitude, Centering, Body Type. [Janet] Six of nine on Expression axis for me [AnnH] I have only 1 action [GeraldineB] I don't see anything for Level [MariLynn] with my body types, I am not sure which one is dominant. I feel almost equal in mars/merc. [GeraldineB] I have three and when Michael gives BTs, they're never in any particular order (or so I've seen them say) [MariLynn] yes [MEntity] For those with dominant Action, then the Goal is the Core Overleaf, and the Project Circuitry would tend to be fairly comfortable and appealing. [ClaireC] Can someone enlighten me on how to read this chart? [Maureen] OK -- Bingo!! I have a winner! 3 are in Action and 2, each, are in the other axis! [GeraldineB] I have three in 5 and three in 6 [MEntity] For those with dominant Expression, then the Attitude is the Core Overleaf, and the Social Circuitry tends to be the most comfortable and appealing. For those with dominant Inspiration, then the Mode is the Core Overleaf, and Intimacy tends to come easily, or is most appealing as a circuitry. For those with dominant Assimilation, the Core Overleaf is Centering, and the Meditative Circuitry (aloneness) tends to be the most comfortable and appealing. If your elements are evenly distributed, you may tend to go with the default HUB of the Personality (which is different from the Core), and that is the Attitude. The HUB of the Personality is similar to the Brain being the hub of the body, but not necessarily the main emphasis of development for an individual. Understanding your Core Overleaf can help you to understand where most of your emphasis is on development. It helps you to understand the state of your moods, your health, and your energy levels. If your Core Overleaf is not fed enough, so to speak, the Personality starves, it begins to deteriorate in circuitry, which reflects in energy levels, health, and mood. So consider this, in light of your Core: if your core is Social, and your life is mostly aimed at Projects, you may find it impacts you in ways that are challenging. If your core is Intimacy, Relating, and your life is focused on Social or Philosophical circuits, you may find yourself challenged in mood, energy, health. And so on. [ClaireC] Michael, with 3 Inspiration and 3 Expression, which would be the Dominant Core? [GeraldineB] Ditto Claire's question -- I, too, am 3 Expression and 3 Inspiration [MEntity] Geraldine, we have stated that if your elements are evenly distributed, you may find that you default to the Hub (the Attitude). [GeraldineB] OK ... I misunderstood [MEntity] That would mean that it is quite important to develop and feed one's philosophies in the life. From this discussion, each of you can now see your Contextual Circuits, understand which Overleaf leads in those, and understand your secondary circuit as being a realm of distraction or as a fulfillment of enthusiasm. We have also shared your Core Overleaf, based on the distribution of elements that make up your Essence and Overleaves, and how this must be developed and tended to for your healthy mood, body, and energy. If one's health, mood, and energy levels may seem compromised, take a look at your Core Overleaf, and determine if you are "feeding" it well enough, tending to it, nurturing it, giving it the experiences it may naturally desire, etc. If one can move the Core Overleaf into some kind of strength of circuitry, it can make a great difference in the body, energy, and mood. [MariLynn] that's for sure!! I thought I *got* it....and then I think I started overthinking it [MEntity] We will conclude here for today. This is an introductory consideration for how the Overleaves work in more useful and meaningful ways beyond their basic definitions. [AnnH] What if we're lacking in one area? [Bobby] the final test will be given on the Causal and it will be open book(Akashic) har har har [Diane_HB] lol [MariLynn] lol Bobby!! [MEntity] Ann, where one tends to be lacking the most, one would tend to attract others who may have that area as dominant. Or one would tend to generate experiences that keep that circuitry alive in some way. (Note: In the editing process, I moved some lines around so they'd make better sense; also, there are a few that were duplicated -- again, to give clarity glb)
OMW - Feb 15, 2014 - Intimacy and Me [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. [MEntity] We can begin discussion on the subject of Intimacy, as requested.[MEntity] We have much to say on the subject over our years of communication with our students, so we remind you that the term "intimacy" may have brought with it variations of discussion relevant to the context at the time. There may be differences in what we have to say today because we will be speaking about this subject quite specifically, and in the context of your understanding it as a vital part of your well-being.[MEntity] Intimacy is one of the very few ways that the Personality can be in sync with the Essence, or even remotely Manifesting Essence, even when Essence is fully rejected by the Personality. Even those who are deeply asleep in life will feel the prompt for the experience that is Intimacy.[MEntity] This is because Intimacy is directly linked to the Higher Moving Center.[MEntity] There is a reason for the sequence of Centers/Chakras rising vertically through the body/Personality in a way that puts a Higher Center toward "the bottom." [MEntity] Tucked amid the three Lower Centers, and the Instinctive Center, that are immediately accessible at any point in the life, is the Higher Moving Center.[MEntity] This is because if there were no Higher Center "anchored" in the density that is the Physical Plane, a Body, and Personality, then the circuitry that would allow for true Manifestation of Essence would be lost. The entire cycle of incarnations would be a process of blindly sending out a body that would then blindly store experiences and then die, finally releasing that information to Essence.[MEntity] We know that many may feel that the process of evolution is tedious, but evolution would be made infinitely more tedious and complicated if there was no way for the Personality to know Essence, or for Essence to know Personality. [MEntity] So the Higher Moving Center tucked amid the Lower Centers ensures that there is, at least, an eventual potential for circuitry to be developed that is then built upon and secured over lifetimes.[MEntity] It is also amid the Lower Centers because it is one of the first Centers fully developed in a species, long before any potential for Sentience.[MEntity] The Higher Moving Center exists among nearly all forms of matter, but particularly among all "living" things.[MEntity] If there is procreation or reproduction, there is a Higher Moving Center.[MEntity] This is, actually, how any new Sentience to a planet is able to experience the variations of life on a planet as part of the process for deciding if that is where the cycle of incarnations will begin.[MEntity] We bring all of this to your attention because Intimacy is such a natural default for Essence, and is anchored so deeply into the navigational tactics for the Physical Plane, that even from long before "you" were "you," Intimacy was a primary experience for evolving.[MEntity] In other words, Intimacy IS a part of your life, whether you are aware of it, approving of it, recognizing it, defining it properly, accepting it, consciously pursuing it, or not.[MEntity] And though the concept and complexity of what Intimacy may mean to an individual over the course of many lifetimes, no matter what, INTIMACY WILL BE FULFILLED.[MEntity] When Intimacy is ignored, rejected, or subconsciously sought to be fulfilled, it will tend to be fulfilled through ADDICTION.[MEntity] We will describe Positive Pole of Intimacy here is REALIZATION (or Resonance), and the Negative Pole as NEED.[MEntity] As Intimacy is motivated directly by Essence, and is directly linked to a Higher Center, its Negative Pole is far from "bad," and is still quite comfortable to embrace.[MEntity] However, if Intimacy has fallen into NEED for too long, and that Need is not allowed or addressed, then the shift toward Addiction begins.[MEntity] Addiction is the long way around to REALIZATION.[MEntity] It is both a rejection of Intimacy, and a profoundly deep dive toward it.[MEntity] Personality cannot truly reject Intimacy, so the closest it can come to avoiding it is through Addictions.[MEntity] We will define "Addiction" here as compulsions that interfere with the capacity to choose against that compulsion. In other words, doing a lot of one thing does not mean it is an addiction, but doing it at the expense of other things that you would prefer to do, or should do for your well-being, then it is likely an addiction.[MEntity] Habits are not Addictions, but Addictions can be generated from habits.[MEntity] The reason Addiction is so intimately linked to Intimacy is because even Addiction is a path toward Realization, which is the ultimate goal of Intimacy.[MEntity] We will define "Realization" here as the pursuit/action/choice toward full awareness of something as an undeniable fact.[MEntity] All of these facts, or truths, are those that are of Essence.[MEntity] They are not subject to fears, second-guessing, rejection, etc.[MEntity] Examples of various pursuits for Realization are: I AM LOVED; I AM SAFE; I CAN LOVE; I AM VALUABLE; I LIKE MYSELF; I LIKE OTHERS; I AM NOT ALONE; etc.[MEntity] So as you pursue or allow Intimacy, let yourself play around with what you may be seeking to Realize. Often, that truth, that fact, is not far from your consciousness, and may often be related to your wounding. It will not change the status of your relationship to someone if you finally grasp why you are so attracted to that person, but it can bring about a deep peace and confidence in your self as representing Essence.[MEntity] No pursuit or allowance of Intimacy is all about the other person. It is generally 99% about YOU, and YOUR pursuit or allowance of Realizations.[MEntity] You want to Realize that you are loved, so you pursue relationships that help you realize this. You want to Realize that you are creative, so you pursue or allow relationships that help you realize this. You want to Realize that you are not alone, so you pursue intimacy with those who share in your perspective. And so on.[MEntity] There are 12 FORMS OF INTIMACY in your life.[MEntity] There are the 3 forms that are most dependent upon shared space and time:[MEntity] SENSUAL, PERCEPTIONAL, and MUTUAL.[MEntity] SENSUAL Intimacy is any form of touch, from the most sexual to the kindest of hugs. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in space.[MEntity] PERCEPTIONAL Intimacy is any form of shared perspective, shared truths, shared experiences. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in time.[MEntity] MUTUAL Intimacy is any form of shared support, exchanged help, sharing of resources. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in both space and time.[MEntity] The above forms of Intimacy are what most think of in terms of "Intimacy" and what most try to bring to any relationship of depth and longevity.[MEntity] When the above are missing from the life, Addiction is highly likely to be involved.[MEntity] However, if a fragment realizes that there are likely far more opportunities for Intimacy than those, he or she can let those broader forms of Intimacy be quite beneficial to the healing and opening that would allow for the more intimate forms above.[MEntity] That first group of 3 might be considered your ESSENTIAL forms of Intimacy, while the next 3 forms of Intimacy are what we might consider your FUNCTIONAL forms of Intimacy:[MEntity] These would be your PLAYFUL, PROJECTIONAL, and CORRECTIONAL forms of Intimacy.[MEntity] PLAYFUL forms of Intimacy are with those whom you simply like to play. This is a form of Intimacy. It does not matter if you know one another beyond this; if you share in the joy of playing together, you are experiencing Intimacy.[MEntity] This gives Realization to the joy and pleasure of form in space.[MEntity] PROJECTIONAL forms of Intimacy are those where you share a common goal, common responsibilities, tasks, cause, agenda. [MEntity] It is allows you to Realize your effectiveness of form in time.[MEntity] CORRECTIONAL forms of Intimacy are where you share in mistakes, failing, commiserating, empathy, recovery, and strengths.[MEntity] This form of Intimacy allows you to Realize both the joy and effectiveness of yourself in form through time and space.[MEntity] Keep in mind that Intimacy does not always "feel good." It can be challenging, terrifying, and awkward. This is because it is not a path that leads you directly to bliss. It is a path that leads you directly INTO WHATEVER IS BLOCKING YOUR BLISS.[MEntity] So the Correctional form of Intimacy can be difficult, for example.[MEntity] The Correctional form of Intimacy marks a kind of shift into even broader contexts for Intimacy, and these tend to be prompted toward, within, and from experiences that can often be far from pleasant.[MEntity] We will refer to this next tier as your TRANSFORMATIONAL forms of Intimacy:[MEntity] These would be your PAINFUL, BEAUTIFUL, and TRUTHFUL forms of Intimacy.[MEntity] Your PAINFUL forms of Intimacy are found in the sharing of conflicts, resistance, combat, hatred, agitation, aggrivation, annoyance, etc. The more a person prompts this in you, the more Intimate you are with him or her. This can be one of the most powerful forms of Intimacy to embrace, because this is where you can Realize WHAT YOU RESIST.[MEntity] This is where you have become immovable as a form in space, or put another way: how you have become stuck as a Personality.[MEntity] For many of our students, the Essential and Functional forms of Intimacy, while important, are fairly embraced and realized, but once Intimacy has moved into the broader contexts, the rejection begins to be noticeable.[MEntity] Your BEAUTIFUL forms of Intimacy are with those who share in your tastes, your preferences, your patterns of preference, including music, art, nature, performances, and even in slang, language, culture, social behaviors and expressions.[MEntity] This sounds "beautiful" until we look a bit closer at how rigidly the boundaries are for many of our students who define themselves by these preferences and patterns.[MEntity] What tends to be missed in this form of Intimacy is that it is not about it being only on your terms. It is about SHARING in a pattern of preference. This means, it may not be one of your familiar patterns, but someone else's. It may not be known to you already, and may require time, but there is a pattern here that is an invitation to Beauty, to Intimacy.[MEntity] So this form of Intimacy helps you to Realize how you have become stuck in your patterns across time.[MEntity] The TRUTHFUL form of Intimacy is when sharing in a moment of utter honesty, even if unprompted, unsolicited, and uninvited. It is much like a child's honesty being expressed at the most inappropriate moment. This form of Intimacy is full of surprises and disorientation, and can come from anywhere, anytime, from anyone.[MEntity] This form of Intimacy has been dubbed "brutal honesty" by some, and then hijacked as a form of abuse by others, but there is a difference between sharing in a truth that strikes a chord of validity, and hearing a "truth" that is merely a hurtful opinion.[MEntity] "Brutal Honesty" is innocent in its presentation. It is known that it will be, and needs to be, heard. It is not intended to be hurtful. However, TRUTHFUL Intimacy can often come out in angry words that have withheld the truth, or collaborated in your avoidance of the truth, and can come out in arguments.[MEntity] If you find you are in a moment of sharing Truthful Intimacy, even if it comes in the heat of an argument, you can stop for a moment and hear that truth, and Realize that you have been seen, known, understood, even if it is ugly to you, or unwanted or rejected by you. It is a Realization of the Truth of YOU, another part of your coming home, across time and space.[MEntity] The next tier would be referred to as the DIRECTIONAL, or INSTRUCTIONAL forms of Intimacy.[MEntity] We use thes terms because they capture the effect of these forms of Intimacy in returning one directly to the core of truth, love, and energy of one's Essence.[MEntity] These would be the CATASTROPHIC, PIVOTAL, and UNCONDITIONAL.[MEntity] Catastrophic Intimacy can bring together entire cities, cultures, and societies to a common ground of Intimacy. This is a kind of ultimate Realization of Oneness in form. On an individual level, this can be the intimacy shared with one who must heal you, or be healed by you, or be mutually healing, and there is a Realization of importance to each of you.[MEntity] Pivotal Intimacy is shared as cultures and societies evolve beyond limitations for who and how their peoples are treated, included, excluded, etc, and the move toward equality and enlightenment is secured. It is a form of growing up, maturing. And this is true on an individual level, as well. Pivotal Intimacy is when you finally "get" another person, perspective, or direction that was rejected by you in the past, or misunderstood, or ignored. Pivotal Intimacy is the realization of our evolution.[MEntity] UNCONDITIONAL Intimacy is in the sharing of spirituality, philosophies, the meaning of experiences, and the greater contexts of existence. We refer to this as "Unconditional" because in most instances where these things are shared, very little else is questioned about that person.[MEntity] Of course, then, the other forms of intimacy come into play, and all hell can break loose to evoke many other layers of intimacy, but Unconditional Intimacy presumes such profound similarity, that it lures in all walks of life into the same space and time, and then the real work of Intimacy begins.[MEntity] Many of our students know this.[MEntity] And so, the above are all of the ways in which your Essence will manifest its pursuit and allowance of Intimacy through you as a Personality.[MEntity] Our suggestion to each of you is to look at each form of Intimacy to see if there can be examples listed for each.[MEntity] Keep in mind that the first two tiers are fairly ordinal in their experience, while the second two are fairly cardinal, so you will probably have more examples of the first 6 forms than the last 6, with more of the last 6 being from personal history or even historic.[MEntity] In other words, the first 6 will tend to happen more often in more ways than the last 6.[MEntity] But ALL 12 are active and alive in you, your life, and your relationships.[MEntity] This pursuit or allowance of Intimacy is not just for sharing with another, but also about your internal sense of Intimacy with yourself, as well.[MEntity] Ultimately, if you understand all of the ways in which you gravitate toward intimacy, and how those forms are fulfilled, your expansion of choice can be greater, more responsible, more conscious, and your benefit shared more kindly and meaningfully.[MEntity] We have time through this channel for up to 3 questions that may serve the group. We can take those now.[DianeHB] How does one embrace Painful forms of Intimacy?[MEntity] Remember that "Pain" equals "Resistance." That is all there is to it. Nearly all experiences from which one grows are a product of FRICTION. Some Friction is pleasurable, some is painful. But Pain is still just information. It is true whether emotional or physical or mental. If you burn yourself on the stove, it is the friction of too much heat. The pain is informing you to pull from the heat. You treat the wound and learn from it. Early forms of learning are to simply avoid the stove altogether. Later forms begin to realize there is no danger, but that one need only be careful, conscious, aware, and to use better tools for navigating the stove and its heat. This process is the same for every other body that is you.[MEntity] So as an older soul, it is not about avoiding the source of pain, but about learning to navigate and use better tools.[MEntity] Yes, some people may require the equivalent of a pot holder to deal with, but you can deal with them. And yes, some may be hotter than others, etc. but to embrace Painful Intimacy means embracing what you are learning from the information in the pain.[MEntity] That is what matters.[DianeHB] I see, thank you.[ViP1] Hi Michael[ViP1] You said: 'This pursuit or allowance of Intimacy is not just for sharing with another, but also about your internal sense of Intimacy with yourself, as well.'[ViP1] Do recurring nightmares indicate a lack of intimacy with the self, and if so, which forms of intimacy are involved (and how to gain that intimacy/fix it?)[MEntity] We would not consider dreams or nightmares to fall into the context of Intimacy here, because we are speaking of Intimacy as that which is prompted in the sharing of time, space, and form with another fragment or fragments. Even though others may be involved, Intimacy is still a matter of that which is internal and external, so that is what we meant. However, if you find that your nightmares are prompted by some form of intimacy with another, there may be processes here that relate to Painful or Truthful Intimacy.[Maureen] Without diminishing the complexity and the varied nature of sports, is watching sports, especially contact sports, a way that many people (mostly men) can vicariously experience intimacy?[MEntity] Oh, yes. If this is an experienced being shared with others, even if after a game, in communcation about the game, in celebrating with others, it can easily be Playful, but if done while alone and with no one else, it may simply be a form of entertainment.[MEntity] When it comes to Sports, it can often fall into the Unconditional Intimacy, with wide presumptions of intimacy being shared because of shared support for a team.[MEntity] We will conclude here for today. We think we have shared enough with you so that each of you can look more closely at how Intimacy works in your life, how you might avoid it, where you might not be recognizing it, and how better to embrace it in all of its forms.
OMW - Sept 20, 2014 - You and Your Working Group Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. GeraldineB: MIKEY!!! ViP1: hi Michael! DianeHB: Hi Michael :) ClaireC: Hello. Janet: So glad you could join us today Michael! MEntity: Your enthusiasm is enjoyable. Maureen: :) MEntity: We realize we have a great deal to cover, so we will cover this topic in as succinct a way as we can in this format. MEntity: First, we will share with you the basic concept of what "Working Groups" are, and how these are organized. MEntity: As you know, there is an awesome order to how each of you is a part of the whole that is Tao, fragmented down in various ways that are mathematically interconnected, such as Design, down to Harmony, down to Composition, down to Arrangement, down to Sphere, down to Ring, down to Cadre, down to Entity, down to Essence/Fragments. MEntity: This kind of mathematical sensibility is inherent in the core of your Essence. It acts like a homing device, a "GPS" locator for your Essence in the entirety of the universe and all of its variations. MEntity: As the soul aged over its incarnations, this sensibility came up in the imagination of fragments as a means for generating new structures that were based entirely within the Physical Plane. MEntity: Rather than being "limited" to only this highly-metaphysical mathematics of the universe, ideas began to form around the gravity of ideas and themes tying individuals together over incarnations, or over, at least, a lifetime. MEntity: Rather than themes being a byproduct of interactions and patterns that revealed those themes, Working Groups came about as an idea to create conscious themes seeded within Essence that would tie linking among fragments for drawing one another back together over and over toward that working theme. MEntity: There a multitude of ways that fragments are drawn together for themes and ideas and nurturing of patterns, and Working Groups is just one of those ways that it happens. What makes Working Groups stand out is that it is entirely seeded by a single lifetime. It is not assigned. It is not imposed. It is an invention that one can opt into, or not. MEntity: It is generated by a lifetime in which Essence AND Personality cooperated as one. MEntity: These Working Groups started with many from the Energy Ring previous to your own, but your Energy Ring took the idea and "ran with it." MEntity: The idea has since propagated among Human Sentience. What began as a fairly localized (to your Energy Ring) idea into which approximately 500,000 fragments opted into, now includes well over 2,500,000 fragments. MEntity: We expect this number to double over the next 25 to 50 years. MEntity: The origins of Working Groups came about in the years around the 3000 BCE mark. MEntity: The idea came about when those in positions for protecting information, history, knowledge, wisdom, etc. in a way that could be carried forward decided there must be a way to protect humanity from these losses. MEntity: Reincarnation was a clear and solid idea among these fragments. These fragments also had access to the "cycles of forgetting" that prompted these ideas to begin this protection of information and knowledge. MEntity: These "cycles of forgetting" referred to periods in humanity's history that were lost to devastation, interventions, population reductions, disasters, invasions, etc. Humanity has reached great peaks in advancement only to have that wiped out and forgotten, folded into the Earth, for which Humans then must rebuild from scratch. MEntity: Humans began to consider the idea that memory and civilization need not be dependent upon material archives. MEntity: And so it came to be that Working Groups formed for the entire point of archiving information from a lifetime in a new way that would "never be forgotten," and activated in future Personalities who could help with innovations, inventions, ideas, philosophies, etc. MEntity: Being a part of a Working Group does not mean the current lifetime is actively working, but your experiences are being stored differently from most fragments so that if there comes another wave that destroys civilization, the "truth" will be activated and the prompt to help restore civilization from those memories would be activated. DianeHB: How did they influence how memory is stored in Essence? MEntity: Diane, for those who opt into a Working Group, there is a portion of the Akashic Records linked directly to those members in a way that is not dependent upon consciousness of the Personality. This may be difficult to describe, but we will try. For most fragments, the Instinctive Center is a local form of the Akashic Records, if you will. It is carried from lifetime to lifetime, MEntity: "inserted" into each Personality and constantly records. This is then "uploaded" to the Akashic in various ways. So for most, this is a kind of vertical circuit between Essence/Akashic. MEntity: For those who opt into a Working Group, there is a "horizontal" form of circuitry built among the members. MEntity: It is never dependent upon "uploads" but is always cross-referenced and uploading. Always. DianeHB: What I'm trying to get at is how did/does this circuitry get created once one "opts in" to a Working Group? Do the original personalities who opted in do this consciously? MEntity: If ever the knowledge is needed that is relevant to that Working Group's focus, it would be active and available very early in the life and not dependent upon the Personality regaining consciousness. MEntity: Diane, that kind of circuitry did not exist before the idea of Working Groups. In the same way the neural pathways open when a new idea is practiced, so can there be variations in the way that more metaphysical pathways get generated. TnT: (Can personalities consciously and in real-time access information the other members are uploading? Like a chatroom such as this or a google drive document all are working on?) MEntity: So as the original members opted in, their consciousness created this experimental circuitry, and then as this idea propagated, so did the strength of this new circuitry among Human Sentience. MEntity: TnT, no. MEntity: When the information is needed, it is there. MEntity: This circuitry is built using the same structures of Cadences. MEntity: Every Working Group is a group of members numbering no more than 49 members. MEntity: The Working Group will always have a member count in multiples of 7. TnT: so the 'memory' is more like another instinctive center/akashic record specific to the group MEntity: Some Groups will only have 35 members, some will have 42, and most will have 49. TnT: in a similar way that an animal species has a collective instinctive center? MEntity: TnT, that is a fair analogy. MEntity: The most-ancient of Working Groups are IBIS, SCARAB, GAZELLE, COBRA, JACKAL, ZEBRA, and FELINE. These formed in the areas of Egypt and led to the beginning of the uses of Hieroglyphs as a first idea for permanent knowledge to be carried forward through symbols. MEntity: Within 1000 years of the first Configuration of Working Groups, the second Configuration began to form. MEntity: This time it would form in the area known as England around the building of Stonehenge, and is the only Configuration of Working Groups that are not animal or insect: BIRCH, OAK, ASH, ROWAN, YEW, SPINDLE, and ELDER. MEntity: The third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh Configurations of Working Groups would eventually form in the era often referred to around Library at Alexandria. MEntity: Nearly all Working Groups we refer to when speaking to our students refer to those Working Groups formed at that time. GeraldineB: This would imply that all of the knowledge "lost" during the destructions of the Library wasn't lost at all MEntity: The structure for Working Groups was finalized during this time so that now there were PODS/CONFIGURATIONS/GROUPS. And so the first Pod was completed. MEntity: Geraldine, that is correct. MEntity: We will return to that idea in a moment. MEntity: The Third Configuration then is comprised of EAGLE, ANTELOPE, HAWK, BUFFALO, COYOTE, STAG, and WOLF; FOURTH = CRAB, STINGRAY, ORCA, WHALE, DOLPHIN, OCTOPUS, JELLYFISH; FIFTH = ALPACA, SALMON, CONDOR, SERPENT, RIVER OTTER, PARROT, PUMA; SIXTH = MARLIN, FLAMINGO, BAT, STARLING, RAVEN, OWL, CRANE; SEVENTH = DOG, HARE, PANTHER, MOUSE, FOX, DEER, BEAR MEntity: All listed above are POD ONE. Maureen: Are the numbers - 1 through 7 representative of "Roles"? MEntity: So those in Starling, for instance, would be POD ONE, CONFIGURATION SIX, WORKING GROUP FOUR. MEntity: Maureen, yes, there would be correlations that can be drawn in the same way that one can do so with the Overleaves system. Janet: Would we only be in one working group? MEntity: Janet, yes. MEntity: However, one can leave a Working Group and move to another. This is rare, but has happened. GeraldineB: I see several animals from So. America -- is this a more global thing than just the Mediterranean? MEntity: To leave a Working Group requires an exchange with another fragment, either between Working Groups, or one opts in where one opts out. MEntity: Geraldine, the names relative to the Working Groups often change. They are more a convenience than anything. They are not literal, but refer to a kind of collective symbolism that is marked deeply within each fragment involved. MEntity: Though the names can often be relative a region, they are also meant to transcend regional references. MEntity: Keep this in mind as you explore the concepts here, because the names of the animals, insect, reptile, or plants do not mean you particularly "like" them. MEntity: VIP = RAVEN MEntity: BOBBY = FELINE MEntity: GERALDINE = JACKAL MEntity: TNT = RIVER OTTER MEntity: DIANE = OCTOPUS MEntity: Did we cover everyone? MEntity: Troy is of the OTTER. (Janet = Antelope; Maureen and Claire = Starling) GeraldineB: So, I don't know anyone in my WG? MEntity: Geraldine, there are very few fragments incarnating from the original Configuration, many of whom opted in post-cycle, such as fragments from our own entity. The original Configuration of Working Groups is the only set of Groups that included guides/non-physical opting in, which is how the circuitry was helped to be secured. MEntity: Over time, for those with the interest, we can map out the entirety of the Pods/Configurations/Groups. MEntity: In addition to your Pod/Configuration/Group, you also have your Position. We will note these for each of you now. MEntity: These are similar to your Casting Positions within a Cadence. We will refer to your Position using a whole number from which you can do the math in terms of "row" of 7. MEntity: Bobby is number 46. MEntity: Geraldine is number 38. MEntity: Claire is 43. MEntity: Diane is 23. MEntity: Janet is 35. MEntity: Maureen is 27. MEntity: TnT is 39. MEntity: ViP is 36. MEntity: Troy is 35. Janet: Are you going to tell us more about each of our groups? Is there time? ViP1: Also, do the position numbers indicate the order in which a fragment joined their group, or something else (or nothing?) MEntity: Janet, we will elaborate upon the Groups in further exchanges. Expanding upon these vast concepts is trying for the channel and we are nearing his limit. We will work with him in providing this follow up to your posted transcript. To help you get started, however, we suggest that each of you look up your Group title in the context of "power animals," or shamanic interpretations, dream MEntity: symbols, or general symbology of those animals to gain insight into what it means for your Essence. MEntity: The most insightful would come in terms of "power animals," as our first suggestion. Janet: Is it possible to say which of our groups are active in this lifetime? Some of us have found connections I think, which I suspect means the group is active? MEntity: VIP, no, this is not dependent upon an order of joining, but a matter of quality that one wished to bring to that group. Our channel, JP, has mapped the entities in a way that can shed light on your position. All positions mapped as 1 through 49 have been attributed a quality that is fair in describing how your own Position plays in your Working Group. ViP1: ok, thank you! MEntity: For instance, your position is relative to FORGIVENESS. MEntity: We know that we cannot fully explore with each of you what these terms mean for you, but having this base can help you to form questions that you can explore with us in further exchanges. MEntity: Janet, connections will be made to some degree, no matter what the times bring, but when there are more precarious times, such as this shift into a Mature paradigm with such violent and destructive resistance from younger souls, many Working Groups, while not active, are certainly "on call." Janet: That’s good to know. Thank you. ViP1: that is good to know indeed MEntity: We think what we have shared today is a start toward comprehending the point of the Working Groups, how we/you created these, when they are relevant, and then each of you can explore what these mean to you in more personal terms in other formats. MEntity: We will conclude here for today. MEntity: Good day to each of you. (Note from Kasia: The following were posted as comments on the original forum post, and include information about specific Working Groups.) Comment from NickF on September 30, 2014: I thought it best to post this as a reply here so as to, hopefully, add some additional information on this subject. In a Michael session today I asked further about Working Groups. I wanted to know about the Dragonfly Working Group as it was not mentioned in this OMW. Below is the exchange I had with Michael. This may add insight, and hopefully help anyone else who did not see their Group listed at the OMW. NickF: The name of my 'Working Group' was 'Dragonfly'. However during the last OMW 'Dragonfly' was not mentioned as one of the Groups during the time of the Library of Alexandria.. Could you please explain and comment on this? MEntity: Those covered in our discussion at the time appear to be only in Pod One. There are many more. NickF: I must be from a different Pod then. Is it possible to find out which Pod that is? MEntity: Yes, Pod Two, Configuration One, which is comprised of: Ant, Butterfly, Bee, Dragonfly, Cicada, Spider, Wasp. NickF: That is helpful to know, thank you! Any significance to the use of insect names? MEntity: Configurations formed around similar groupings of mammals, reptiles, insects, plants, etc. The idea was that the Configurations would be easier to find one another because of these nature groupings. It was more a convenience of organization than anything. However, the choice for insects does reflect the overall themes of the Configuration in that some work as cohesive groups much like one mind, some work as individuals, some collect, some use tools, etc. Comment from MikeClev on October 2, 2014: Some more info on Working Groups: I had a session with Michael and Troy this evening where I asked a few follow-up questions on Working Groups: Originally posted to my blog, here: http://explore.truthloveenergy.com/blogs/187/566/more-on-leopard-working-group-an [MEntity] Hello to you, Michael. We are here, now. We can begin now. [MikeClev] Hello :) [MikeClev] Leopard Working Group was not mentioned in Pod One in the recent Working Groups OMW. Could you please tell me which Pod it is in, which configuration, and what the 7 Working Groups in that configuration are? Does this configuration have a shared theme? How many Pods are there? [MikeClev] Does a Group's position relate to your system of 7 for Roles etc? What is my position # within the Leopard Group, and what does that position entail? Do I know anyone else in the Leopard Group? (PS my son today told me he has been assigned to Leopards 'House/team' at school, which made me laugh!) Thanks. [MikeClev] Oh and could you tell me which Working Group Victoria is in, and what their theme/task is? Thankyou. [MEntity] Leopard would be POD TWO, CONFIGURATION FIVE, with your Position at 29. The Working Groups are ONE - Buffalo, TWO - Giraffe, THREE - Hippopotamus, FOUR - Elephant, FIVE - Leopard, SIX - Rhinoceros, and SEVEN - Lion. The Configurations tend to have themes around the geographical origins of the animals, plants, or insects referenced, but that is not always the case. Sometimes members were not in agreement with a specific area. In your case, the fascination was with Africa and its wild. [MEntity] There will be approximiately 10,000 PODS grouped in sets of 12 that could be called anything, but for simplicity's sake we can refer to them as Greater Pods, so there would be approximately 900 Greater Pods. [MEntity] There is relevance to the Working Group's position within the Configuration of Working Groups as it correlates to the Roles. This is simply the nature of the mathematics, and not consciously intentional. More insight can be gained by these correlations. [MEntity] Your Position within the Working Group is one of coordinated access to information and experiences. We think this is referred to as "sharing" in the mapping of numbers. [MEntity] It is not unusual for those fragments who come to recall or be invited to recall their Working Group mascot, the more prominent that creature becomes symbolically in the life. [MEntity] Victoria appears to be from POD TWO, CONFIGURATION SEVEN comprised of Warthog, Seal, Penguin, Hyena, Crocodile, Wildebeest, and Shark. She is of the Penguin in Position 35. [MEntity] The Penguin Group is themed in enduring tasks that require long-term devotion, commitment, and some degree of love to be fulfilled. [MEntity] However, they are also themed in being the surprise element of a scenario, in that they will suddenly provide a breakthrough, realization, revelation, that changes "everything" in terms of a particular task or commitment. [MEntity] They tend to also share in a theme of keeping feelings close to themselves while hosting great resevoirs of emotion and perception about experiences, relationships, and events. [MEntity] Until those come into form, they are much like a still, deep lake. [MEntity] We think we have covered each of your questions. This is new information through Troy, so the delivery is a bit slow, but it will continue to gain momentum and clarity with the questions of students. ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- On to the analysis. Position 29 is, as Michael says, labelled 'Sharing'. Server Casting/Column, Sage row. I wonder if it is relevant that I am Sage cast, and my Essence Twin is a (Sage cast) Server? Vic's Position 35 is labelled 'Authenticity', and is at the opposite end of the same row. King Casting/Column, Sage Row. Vic is an Artisan cast Scholar, Server ET, so no correlation there. The number of pods was surprising- 10000! Each pod has a maximum of (up to 49 slots x 7 Working Groups x 7 Configurations) = 2401 Essences. Multiply by 10000 pods, means that's a potential 24 million Essences involved in working groups! The animal names of the working groups in my configuration feature a lot in my games and imagination/playfulness with my kids. I often make up names for them based on those animals. So combining the session info with the information Nick F added to the OMW on Working Groups, we have this info for Pod 2: POD TWO, CONFIGURATION ONE are: 1: Ant, 2: Butterfly, 3: Bee, 4: Dragonfly, 5: Cicada, 6: Spider, 7: Wasp. POD TWO, CONFIGURATION FIVE are: 1: Buffalo, 2: Giraffe, 3: Hippopotamus, 4: Elephant, 5: Leopard, 6: Rhinoceros, 7: Lion. POD TWO, CONFIGURATION SEVEN are: 1: Warthog, 2: Seal, 3: Penguin, 4: Hyena, 5: Crocodile, 6: Wildebeast, 7: Shark. I hope you found this interesting! -Mike C Comment from H2nna on October 3, 2014: Great OMW! I've been channeled to be in the Dolphin group before. Michael said "The Dolphin Group tends to focus on paraverbal communication and self-expression as a teaching."
June 21, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor Note: This content has been corrected based on Troy’s acknowledgment of errors on June 26. Although the report is for two weeks, Michael included info regarding a shift in August. [Michael_Entity] Hello. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as it stands for the weeks between June 24 through July 7. We will comment momentarily that the energy over the past couple of weeks has built and will peak this weekend, for most of you. We speak in a wider meaning of “you” at this point. This weekend will be a pivotal social experience for some of you. It is suggested that you take part in any events you have been invited to or are considering in any way. We do not wish to infuse any more meaning into this weekend than you, individually, would extract, but the energy is there for this to be a great change in your usual setting. If you are in some way involved in a larger gathering or social event than you have been for a while, we suggest it is in an indication that you are, indeed, considering more of your Needs being responsibly fulfilled. If you are not involved in any events of this nature, it may be simply an indication that you are open to examining the more social aspects of yourself, responsibly considering your personal Needs before exposing yourself to a larger circle. Regardless, the themes over the next couple of weeks are, indeed, about exposure and even further reaching out to other fragments in Agreement, Karma, or any other connection. Many of you older souls shy away from the more “silly” aspects of being “out there,” resigning from indulging in social activities and playfulness. It is not because you do not crave it, but that you feel as if “there are more important things to do.” Even if you believe you are a fairly playful and social person, as our channel here does, we still suggest that there is an opportunity this weekend, and over the next two weeks, to “let your hair down.” Your Chief Features will be highlighted, but only lightly, in relation to how you feel in groups, and as part of a group. August 4 marks your next Parallel Shift; this one focusing on arranging, rearranging, adding, and moving away from people in your life. Any relationships that are not fulfilling to you on at least two levels (out of 4; Instinctive, Emotional, Intellectual, Physical), will more than likely dissolve. Any relationships that have been introduced within this year that are “new” and are fulfilling at least two of your levels (and reciprocated, of course), will more than likely take a serious, permanent turn. We include the next ten days or so as a period of time in “finding” some of the “new” relationships, as well. This does not have any bearing on relationships outside of this context, as anyone met after August will have different contexts and “reasons” of their own. We do not mean to imply anything more or less about relationships outside of these parameters in the Energy Report; we are merely commenting on the nature of the energy at this time. During this Nexus, you will be DIVERGING Parallels, primarily, meaning you will be in a period of potentially obvious Choice Making. Your choices will determine the nature of any parallels created or sustained. We realize choice making occurs at all times, but during a Nexus, there are either MERGINGS or DIVERGENCES, primarily, and with Diverging, there is a heightened sense of needing to consider your choices. While during a MERGING, there is a sense of needing to sleep, wait, exhaustion, etc., as with the previous major Nexus. We will begin with your questions, either about the Energy Report, or otherwise. [MaryBV] Well, it is interesting that you brought this up, because I have been wondering about the nature of the TrueView list now that the membership has changed. Can you comment a bit on the purpose of the list now? [Michael_Entity] The “TrueView” list has several “purposes,” many of them personal to the participants. In and of itself, though, “TrueView” has as its “purpose” to house the elements of your Cadre and Energy Ring who are concerned with this Teaching as it can be applied in the lives of others. We do not mean “apply” in terms of recruiting or teaching it, yourselves, but rather, many of you are serious about how to translate the elements of your lives through the lens of this teaching, and utilize that insight as a means to help others. We have seen a common denominator among those of you actively participating with “TrueView,” in that you are “working on yourselves,” not as a means to only “better yourselves,” but as a means to be MORE for others. Each of you appear to be “touchstones” for many in your contact circle, and whether subtly or more openly shared, your perceptions are used as a means to better your relationships, and this extends into helping others with their own. If “TrueView” were to have a “Task,” it could be said to be “to comprehend and embody the importance of being Needed and Wanted.” [ludmila] This changing of relationships you refer to, as happened with people unsubscribing from this list, and still others recently joining, does this mean the agreements have been filled or just changed, or is it that those people who left resonate more to another channeler? [Michael_Entity] Many Agreements were abdicated, while still others simply resonate more to other speakers. Those that have abdicated will find other Agreements to fulfill; those who were left with the abdication will find their second strings of Agreements to fulfill. Agreements are malleable, as you know, and are not Karmic in their fulfillment or abdication, for the most part. Abdication though, does tend to bring out any Self-Karma for examination. The shift in the list you refer to certainly created a wave of self-examination and self-karma, mostly around acceptance and, as we said, the nature of being wanted and needed. [Dewliet] Hi Michael. Aside from what Troy would call “sucky channeling,” what are some reasons for discrepancies in overleaves channeled by different people? [Michael_Entity] There are three facets to a Personality, the Akashic Records (or True Overleaves), the Perceived Overleaves; and the Projected Overleaves. The True Overleaves are just that, the True Overleaves. They are sometimes not understood or agreed with because they do not “match” the behavior the fragment appears to be exuding, but they are the Overleaves, nonetheless. Due to Imprinting, a fragment can appear completely in opposition to his/her True Overleaves. No amount of valid channeling will bring awareness or validation to this fragment or those trying to comprehend them. Perceived Overleaves are the Overleaves of another fragment as they are filtered through your own or a channel’s; it is how YOU see Other. Channeling the Overleaves of a fragment as they are being perceived by those around them can be very freeing and enlightening. This, then, can bring understanding and acceptance for that aspect of them and/or free the Perceived fragment from the confines of the imprinting and bring about the True Overleaves. Projected Overleaves are those being attempted to as a presentation from the fragment in question. Regardless of the True Overleaves, this fragment may have decided on a way of being and behaving that is conducive to certain tasks or images. This does not change their True Overleaves, but certainly affects how they are perceived. Channeling for that fragment or about that fragment can bring understanding and acceptance about the nature of their Ego and self-perception. It can be said that the Perceived Overleaves can shed light on the nature of the fragment as they are expected to behave, while the Projected Overleaves shed light on how that fragment expects to be accepted. ALL versions of the Overleaves are “valid” in their own contexts. Many channels are not aware of these differences as Facets. So, aside from “sucky channeling,” there is this to consider. [Annette] Psychic Sylvia Brown has stated that the soul chooses three “exit points” for its lifetime – possible “outs” in case life isn’t working out and fragment chooses to return, or when fragment feels work is done. Can Michael comment on this? [Michael_Entity] We have seen the average as being 5 Exit Points. We concur other than that minor point. [Liiona24] During last report on Needs, the statement was made that we should watch our reactions and that those indicated where we needed to be doing more for ourselves, if I interpreted correctly. However, some needs appear to be “other” oriented such as Exchange. How is this resolved then, how does one meet a need for “exchange” unilaterally, for example? [Michael_Entity] ALL Needs are only “Other-Oriented” in that they do require a certain circuitry for their fulfillment. What we mean in terms of these Needs as being the individual’s responsibility to fulfill, for instance: if you believe there is no fulfilling Exchanges in your life, then you would seek out more appropriate “circuits.” If you are trying to have a meaningful, deep, emotionally/intellectually/physically satisfying Exchange in a relationship that is not creating a circuit, then it may be appropriate to lose the expectations of that being your source. Exchange is not just about giving something to someone else, but that you are having True Communication on some level. Exchange can be satisfied even in the realms of financial investments, so it is not simply about Other. Their is no way to “unilaterally” be concerned with the Needs of Others, except in terms of what you feel you are comfortable in offering. You will all find your sources and matches in some way. [JNelson] What emotions are goosebumps and the “chills” a physical manifestation of, not counting responses to temperature? Or intellectual manifestations of, for that matter. [Michael_Entity] This could be called “Instinctive Realization.” It is the result of the Lower Centers responding/reacting simultaneously as PARTS of the Instinctive Center. This experience is always linked to “realization” on a level that bypasses all of the Lower Centers, but creates a release in them as Parts in the Instinctive Center. When this occurs, it is safe to say that the very base part of you has resonated to something rooted in fear or desire. Fear may be obvious, but when the realization is in desire, as it is meant here, is in the connection made on a level wherein you had no previous realization that you were “expecting” something of that nature. [ClaireN] Would Michael please comment on the function of the pineal gland and any disorders that it may cause? [Michael_Entity] The Pineal Gland is related to what might be considered your Higher Emotional Center, 6th Chakra, or “Third Eye.” We have seen its function directly related to dreaming, astral perception, channeling, imagination, and true perception/love. It is highly affected by the amount of sunlight, or any light for that matter, that is taken in through the sense of sight, and as the light permeates the forehead. Those who have a block or “disorder” in this gland can tend to have fertility problems, menstruation problems, and inability to have imagination of an optimistic nature, inability to recall dreams, may have depression and sleep disorders. One of the major contributors to the suppression of this gland’s ability to function properly is in the use of what is called “microwaves.” Food prepared in this fashion tends to carry within it “vortexes” of energy that, when integrated over a short period time, can lead to lack of motivation and lack of clarity for a future. The “vortexes” remain in the body, particularly affecting the Pineal, for an average of 7 years. We do not have a term through this channel to more adequately describe that which is transferred through the act of microwaving, but this will do. The “vortexes” collect in the center of the food prepared, in a size approximately equal to a golf ball. Larger ovens preparing larger foods can create collections in sizes up to a tennis ball. Those who are overexposed or underexposed to sunlight can develop a disorder of this gland. Those who are overexposed to what is called Fluorescent lights are susceptible to this, as well. We will conclude here. Good Night.
