ASK MICHAEL - Live Channeling April 6, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [Joeyann] How can you tell what I'm doing did the original Michael group set up the commune that they were talking And reading transcripts from 1973 and 74 there are going to set up a commune and I'd like to know if that was completed [MEntity] The talk of communes was that of the channels ideals at the time, and not our own. We had, nor have, any intention for encouraging or "setting up" a commune. Communes are an ideal that is appealing to many, particularly of those shifting from Young to Mature and into Mature, but for the Old Soul, it can be "hell." [Joeyann] Thank you that is how I pictured it myself [MEntity] This is not to say that there are no Old Souls in communes, but many of these only pass through these as sanctuaries for healing and respite, but not as a long-term investment. Of course, we are speaking in terms of what is currently understood as a template for what a commune is. This template is based on the shift from Young to Mature. The older soul ideal for a commune would be quite different. [David_Wlk] Hello Michael... And on Michael communities in general... would you be able to speak about Michael communities into the potential future, choosing to gather in particular environs around the world, with a particular interest in Australia as a safe haven. [MEntity] Are you asking if there are Michael students in Australia who can gather? If not, please phrase a question. [David_Wlk] Not so much about now - But for gatherings of M students there, or elsewhere, in the future. And why...? [MEntity] In terms of future gatherings, and locations for gatherings, this is entirely up to the students. We do not direct these. We merely "show up" if invited. [David_Wlk] I'm interested in places of gathering - safe havens into the future... [MEntity] Anywhere that there are those who are not preoccupied with survival struggles would be ideal. There must be, at least, some sense of safety created and sustained among those who would gather. Location is secondary. Beyond the obvious places that might be dangerous, there are any number of locations that could be described as inherently stable and safe. If you are asking us to pick a place, we would not do so. We are not limited to location, and we prefer to leave the assessment of safety up to those who are directly experiencing the challenges and pleasures of the Physical Plane for arranging locations. [Juni] There is a fair amount of information about C1E7 about how it is the "sweetheart" entity. As time allows, what is characteristic about its counterpart, C2E7, along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity? Please summarize or expand for what you think is most useful/informative/helpful. [MEntity] First, all Entity Sevens would have as their Positive Pole that of INCULCATION, and as a Negative Pole that of ECLECTICISM. The variation of Essence Roles in any given Entity then colors how those Poles are manifested among the members. While Cadre 1, Entity 7 is primarily Servers and Priests, with Artisans, Cadre 2, Entity 7 is primarily Priests and Servers, with Scholars. Those slight variations lend very different "flavors" or colors to each of those Entities. In general, those from Cadre 1, Entity 7 tend to dance a finer line between chaos and order, whereas those from Cadre 2, Entity 7 tend to dance a fine line between isolation and understanding. The Scholarly infusion among the members seems to bring about a great need to understand, to make sense, to KNOW, and if this is not the case, these members tend to recoil in isolation, observation, and distance. This means that the repetitive themes (inculcation) for most members of Cadre 2, Entity 7 are those that push through everything that is confusing, overwhelming, and disorienting. These members will keep repeating and repeating an experience, scenario, relationship, lifetime, etc. until there is that understanding, that confidence in knowing. This may sound difficult, but it is the Positive Pole. It is how these members move toward expansion and evolution. It is a preferred path, despite its challenges. When in the Negative Pole, these members tend to feel fragmented and conflicted, divided among various facets of the life in a way that can sometimes feel fraudulent or as an imposter. This is Eclecticism here. It is a process of learning that is piecemeal, so to speak. A little bit here; a little bit there, but nothing comprehensive. This means that this Entity has had its fair share of members having "gone crazy," or struggled with mental stability. This is not exclusive to this Entity, of course, but it is a pattern among the members. For that reason, we might consider describing this Entity as having a theme in SANITY. The delicate and often difficult maneuvering through lifetimes for these members can be as wild and as fun as they can be implosive and crushing. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, I just love this description of the Server Casting that I found you wrote: [Kurtis] Server Casting might show up as a default, keen awareness of the needs, feelings, and behavior of those around you, sometimes to the extent of distraction. It might show up as a sensitivity and kindness that wishes only the best for others, while being rather frustrated, or even infuriated, with those who are inconsiderate and disrespectful of boundaries. It might show up as being in a position among friends and family that is more often than not turned to for insight, help, nurturing, availability, and understanding. [Kurtis] This was your answer to one of Al's questions a while back, and many have said these hold true who are Server Castings, so I was wondering if you could write the same format above, but for the Warrior Cast. [MEntity] Warrior Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of sincerity and authenticity in various experiences or people in the life. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who generate meaningful challenges to the Personality so that there is no sense of complacency or apathy. This attraction to those who might bring this honesty, authenticity, and challenge can mean that many fall short of the expectations of this fragment, and there may easily come a system of navigation that comes to be based on presumptions and prejudices. This, then, becomes a wall through which those who seek intimacy will have to "prove" themselves to the Warrior-Cast, even if that Warrior-Cast does not realize this is in place. This can bring about a rather dismissive stance from the Warrior-Cast that would, eventually, have to be addressed by that Warrior-Cast if the desire for authenticity and honesty outweighs the actual experience of it. The above is just one of many ways we can respond to such a question seeking elaboration, but this will suffice for now. [Bobby] I wanted to follow up on the information that you provided Anna regarding her cat, George. For clarification purposes, were you saying that every cat "body" on the planet is experienced through a different Entity? If not, would you elaborate a little more on how that works? Before, I had just thought that a single Entity experienced through ALL cat bodies on the planet [MEntity] Bobby, while there is far more collective awareness among those who are participating in a non-sentient species, the higher the medium is in the tier of Kingdoms, the more individualized the consciousness involved. Domestic Cats and Dogs are of the Higher Mammal Kingdom, and are, therefore, quite a bit more fragmented in consciousness. Until there is full Sentience, however, that fragmentation still remains with full access to, say, "Cat Central" that is, the field that sustains Felines. [Bobby] so cat central would be comprised of the individual Entities then? [MEntity] In a sense, yes. Let us offer the following as a means for clarification. In terms of moving through the 7 Kingdoms of a Physical Plane toward (potential) full fragmentation and Sentience in a particular species, it works much like this: Oceanic/Mineral Kingdom = Entire Design; Vegetation Kingdom = Energy Rings; Insect Kingdom = Cadres; Cold-blooded, Bird, and Lower Mammal Kingdoms are variations of Entities; Higher Mammal Kingdom is quite varied, but tends to be a single Entity or members of a single Entity. The higher the kingdom, the more attached to the individual bodies. The lower the kingdom, the more one acts as caretaker, or "deva" for an entire species or large group within the species. So "Cat Central" is more like an Akashic Records for that species to which those who are experiencing the species contribute. We often use the term "hive soul" for non-sentient incarnations because a body, group, or mountain can be "home" to a multitude of fragments/entities/cadres. So the Entity experiencing you through your cat is experiencing its entirely unique experience. It is not that your cat is simply one set of eyes among millions through which a crowd is experiencing. By the time there is the breakdown to incarnations as entities in a Kingdom, there is a cycle of lifetimes experienced with that particular species. For instance, an entity that is experiencing CAT, will have 7 Cat lifetimes. The incarnational cycle is 7 lifetimes for mammals. So there will be 7 as cat, 7 as dog, 7 as cow, 7 as pig, etc. Eventually, this movement of consciousness begins to fade for a planet and the multitude of species begin to die off. This is particularly true when there is little viable means for access to any other species as Sentient. If the Sentience of Gorillas can stabilize, more species will spring into Sentience for other Designs to follow. Otherwise, there may have to come an extinction of Humans, first. [Bobby] Ok, thanks. We'll definitely follow up on this with more specifics in the near future. I think it's fascinating. [Jana_K] Hello Michael, could you please talk about how Flow gets itself into positive poles through sliding to other Goals? Or how Flow can generally benefit from sliding to each of the different goals? [MEntity] Jana, Assimilative Overleaves almost always require the use of another Axis to move to its own Positive Pole. Though it is possible for the Neutral to move within itself, it is simply, nearly impossible. In the same way that any other Overleaf must tend toward the Positive Pole of its partner on an Axis as a way to return to its own, the Assimilative depends on this same process. Though the Assimilative Overleaves have access to the entire range of Overleaves in its category, habits do tend to form in regard to the particular challenges and interests that the Personality is developing for that lifetime. So one person's Flow may gravitate toward Growth as its means of return to a Positive Pole, and to the Inspiration Axis in general, while another may gravitate toward Acceptance, or the Expression Axis, as its means of return. In that regard, it is quite helpful for those in Flow to look at the life in terms of what may be a pattern for experiences at any given time. There will larger arcs and smaller arcs of experiences, so this would need to be considered, as well, but one can usually tell if the current emphasis is on a larger or smaller arc. So if your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with meaning, value, reflection and projection (inspiration), then your Flow would want to move to Growth or Re-evaluation as a means of return to Freedom. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with contribution, participation, effectiveness, and movement, then you would likely want to move your Flow to Dominance or Submission. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing struggles with making confident choices, blockages to intimacy, feeling present, and/or making a difference, then your Flow might want to move toward the Expression Axis as a means of return to its Positive Pole. The above are generic phrases to reference those Axes, and should not be considered definitive. We wished only to give examples for how one might assess where Flow may consciously or subconsciously move when in light of particular patterns in the life. The more consciously one can associate the patterns of the life with various key elements of an Axis, the more consciously one in Flow can then use the Positive Pole of one of those Goals to then help return to Flow's own Positive Pole. [Janet] Will you please provide information on Artisan Casting similar to what you just gave Kurtis for Warrior Casting? [MEntity] Artisan Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of integrity and self-awareness among those with whom this fragment shares experiences and relationships. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who are consistent in "who they are" and are quite clear in their motives. From what we have seen, it can often drive an Artisan-Cast fragment to infuriated tears when others are not cohesive in their sense of motivations or ideals. This means this Casting will tend to gravitate toward those who are quite comfortably-defined, but flexible, in where, how, and who one is as individual, but when this comes to be few and far between, the Artisan-Cast can start to simply make up backstories for all of the participants in the life as a means to bring that sense of consistency. What happens, then, can be a falling into paranoia, gossip, and over-analysis, particularly when that Artisan-Cast cannot seem to get his or her bearings on the motives or ideals of a person or project. Depending on the path of the Artisan-Cast, he or she may then gravitate toward challenging people and experiences that provoke discord, and then this Casting will figure out how to bring harmony.
