[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 1999] [TCB] Is it ‘true’ that most fragments who choose to make channeling agreements with you, Michael, work with one or more fragments of your entity? As opposed say, to ‘tapping’ directly into the WHOLE entity consciousness? In other words, do we have certain M. entity fragments ‘assigned’ to work with different ‘mediums’? [Michael_Entity] Yes, this is true for many we work with. This does not mean it is true for us. The Personality for some involved with us requires a sense of personification. No legitimate channel is literally connecting to us in such segmented ways, but there are fragments within our entity for which the various channels can “port” into the whole. For some channels, this is experienced as working with only a few fragments who speak on behalf of the entire entity, but that would be a distortion. We have allowed ourselves to be called “sun gods” in Delphi, so we also allow more modern distortions. This colours the channeling to a degree, but many factors do besides this, so it is moot. [ludmila] Do you mean at the Temple of Apollo? [Michael_Entity] We worked primarily in the Oracles of Delphi at the time, yes. We will elaborate on this another day, if more history is sought.
December 9, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. One moment. We realize in our Energy Reports we have been sharing more than the usual amount of information. We do this at the request of the channel, Otterly [aka Troy Tolley], not as a means to impose lessons upon you. We do however feel the ability to apply the information we share is sometimes overlooked in the eagerness to “learn more”. In the Western culture, particularly, you have been heavily imprinted with the need for “more information” without the application of it. This is still a valid path, and one that yields great amounts of insight for many, but we raise this point as a means to offer reflection. We have no investments in how the information is applied or not applied, we simply answer your questions as we perceive. We see many of the students in states of satiation, filled with theory, yet having no means to funnel the information in a meaningful way. Many of you found this teaching meaningful precisely for its potential application. It is for this reason that Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] asks for insights into the dynamics of the Overleaves and Personality as you approach certain phenomenon in your lives. If it is your choice to utilize the information to that degree, then the information is here. With that said, we will take any questions as they might pertain to the Energy Report. [Mary936] Could you tell us more about what the Global Nexus means for Earth and for us? [Michael_Entity] A Global Nexus occurs every year. It is not unusual in itself. This particular Nexus and the next one in 2000 are highly emphasized due to the psychological symbols associated with it. This Nexus will affect Baby Souls the most as old ideas about “Christ's return” comes into question. With the high influx of Mature Soul consciousness, Young and Baby Souls will begin to feel the impact. Those in positions of authority in the church and in politics will be guided by new parameters and concerns. Regardless of Soul Age, all fragments are beginning to feel the intense impact of a new context for your planet. The “drama” of this Nexus, especially with the impending “Y2K” impact, will be one more intense cementing of the Mature Soul challenges permeating society and its people. For once, the planet is looking up, attentive, at nearly the “same time”. In other words, this will be one Nexus that implies in the most deeply moving of ways, that you all need each other; especially if the “lights go out”. For some of you who scoff at the prospect of Y2K problems, you are still reviewing your “what if's”. Those who do not work within the parameter of Mature Soul grouping will be glaringly obvious as they lash out in the New Year. You can see the beginnings of this anyway, as each person in their life sees the media’s portrayal of life “out there” as scary and unpredictable, lending a sense of appreciation for what is trusted in your closest circles. This then is the single most meaningful aspect of this Nexus all across the board. It will bring, if it hasn't already in its unfolding, a clarity of what is true in terms of the “higher” aspects of your living. Everything is being “reset”. Because of the psychological symbolism being attributed to this Nexus (and the new year), most are taking this opportunity as a way to start anew on all levels. As we stated in the Energy Report, look to your own “symptoms” to see if there are any messages for you. We can go on, but we will pause here. Is this offering some insight into the process? [Mary936] My “symptoms” were feeling happy and in tune, so I just felt fortunate. It may be hardest for Baby Souls. [suzee] I am in the midst of resetting my life beginning with my relationships…so absolutely. [Michael_Entity] Yes, though we covered the more uncomfortable symptoms, the feelings of synchronicity and joy are too, symptoms and messages. Most of you have started SOMETHING “new” that has some major significance in where you are “going”. This is part of your Nexus. Any comments can be shared here. We will take Terri's question after some comments, if there are any. [TCB]: There are three parts to the instinctive center, is this correct? Could you talk a little bit about how this nexus, and the various higher centers, may be affecting the 3 parts (physical body preservation, past life memory, and I forget the last part at the moment, sorry) of the instinctive center at this time? ... Oops sorry (Damn impatience!) [Lights_Edge] I definitely can relate to the new and identify with coming to know what is true for me. [Michael_Entity] If there are no comments, we will address Terri's question. [Hestiabastet] We have been finding ourselves in the middle of creating a lot of changes in our perceptions of our life, both present and future..:) [Michael_Entity] In response to Terri: All of the Instinctive is up for review. Not in the usual sense of tediousness, but more of an “overhaul”. Some of you are literally “purging” your systems. We would say that is most true for those of you having physical symptoms. Some of you are “upgrading” your systems. We would say this is true for those of you having confusion and overwhelm, disorientation. Some of you are “integrating” your systems. This might be true for those with anger and hypersensitivity. The Moving, Intellectual, and Emotional parts, respectively. [TCB] Is it kind of like a ‘distillation process the, finally coming down to “Whats True” for each of us then? [Michael_Entity] In each of these cases, it relates to the Instinctive Center, and these “three parts” Terri speaks of (each, of course, relating to preservation: physical, intellectual, and emotional respectively). In many of your cases, your “preservations” are outdated. They have carried over from lifetime to lifetime over many eons as the world took particular paths. They were held in anticipation of certain world truths. As this Nexus unfolds and more of what is “true” for the world in the new year becomes evident, you will settle into a pattern that moves the planet forward as collectively agreed upon. A Global Nexus at a millennium cross point REQUIRES all who are choosing to incarnate within the next 1000 years to converge on some basic principles for the “game”. So, yes, in answer to your question, ‘coming down to what is true’. [TCB] So we are “updating” our instinctive center ‘preservation of the species’ programs’….in a sense? [Michael_Entity] Yes, Terri, a valid image indeed. [TCB] Not to take up the whole floor, just trying to clarify a bit. Okay, Thank you Michael. (and Ott.) [Michael_Entity] When we move to OPEN FLOOR tonight, Otterly asks that questions do not move into exclusivity in terms of personal issues. If you choose to ask questions, have them capable of applying to all involved if possible. We will now move to OPEN FLOOR. We will continue until 11:15 EST. [MaryBV] Ott has suggested that we group together in small groups to work in 2000. Can Michael suggest which people might work better together? [Michael_Entity] We are unfamiliar with Otterly's suggestion. We would need some clarification. [MaryBV] Uh, Ott has suggested groups of 6 with Ott being the seventh to work together. To do advance studies together. [Michael_Entity] Yes, this seems to be a number conducive to learning in groups wishing to utilize information for growth and application. In answer to your question, we see all of you capable of being “grouped” with success. For refinement of that, we suggest you trust your intuition and feelings of resonance. We would also suggest considering the themes wishing to be covered. This is not an attempt at humour, but if the structures of your Cadres and Entities can be managed, your study groups can be as easily. [Shannon] Do all of us, who here call ourselves your “students”, have specific Agreements with you for information (or channeling)? And is this why your teachings resonate for us, and not for others with whom we might try to share your teachings? [Michael_Entity] Yes. This is valid. We are not “the” teaching. We are merely “one” perception of this Universe's patterns. For some, our teaching and insight will never be true. It is possible to die a 7th Level Old Soul, final life, and be a devout Christian or Baptist. Only the Essence determines the rate of evolution by its own standards. The only standards that are “universally true” are in the continually encompassing contexts for truth, love, and beauty (organized as Soul Ages in our teaching). Not all here are technically our ‘students’, but all here are seeking and living their paths to what they might call “home”. [Lights_Edge] I have been playing the idea that to truly understand you are the creator of your own reality you have to being accepting the responsibilities you have abdicated in the past to others. Can you comment on this idea and if it is valid in anyway? [Michael_Entity] If in “accepting responsibilities” you mean impose self-guilt and judgment, it is not valid, but a trick of the Chief feature. If in “accept responsibility” you mean to apply comprehension of your consciousness at the time (your past) as innocent, then yes, it is valid. We are using “valid” here as a means to differentiate fearful courses versus loving courses. You may choose any method of “accepting responsibility” that makes sense to you. If that does not work, in some “future” reference, you can even then “look back” at your innocence, and offer love. We are using “innocence” here as indicative of your evolution. Though time and linear reality does not exist to the Essence, it is quite valid and real to the Personality. To strip it of that tool is to remove its power. In recognizing your evolution within the lifetime, releasing guilt, self-judgment, and regret, is to acknowledge your past as having “not been in vain”. In other words, why remove the impact of a lesson chosen or experience processed, only to be replaced with inertia, sentimentality, or other fear? It is your life. We would say the single most important “mantra” that can be said without too much distortion of implication is to say that you “own it”, but let that ownership mean you built on it, not deconstructed it. This comes as suggestion in response to your query, not as instruction. You may deal with your pasts in any way you choose, of course. [TCB] Is it ‘true’ that most fragments who choose to make channeling agreements with you Michael, work with one or more fragments of your entity? As opposed say, to ‘tapping’ directly into the WHOLE entity consciousness? In other words, do we have certain M. entity fragments ‘assigned’ to work with different ‘mediums’? [Michael_Entity] Yes, this is true for many we work with. This does not mean it is true for us. The Personality for some involved with us requires a sense of personification. We have allowed ourselves to be called “sun gods” in Delphi, we also allow more modern distortions. This colors the channeling to a degree, but many factors do besides this, so it is moot. [ludmila] Do you mean at the Temple of Apollo? [Michael_Entity] We worked primarily in the Oracles of Delphi at the time, yes. We will elaborate on this another day, if more history is sought. [Lights_Edge] For clarification on my earlier question… Can you give an example of approach from a “loving course” and one from a “fearful course”. [Michael_Entity] A “loving course” is to acknowledge the symptoms showing as regret, sorrow, distraction, and grief, as valid forms of processing first. From there, many continue to impose the process rather than move forward. It is taught to many of you that in light of realization, punishment must follow. This is a construct that is a “fearful course”. Realization and heightened consciousness need not be forever laced with these symptoms. Self-punishment, in all of its costumes, was always someone else's ideas clashing with your own truths. This is true in all cases of self-punishment. Choosing to see your past in its true innocence, is a “loving course”. Choosing to see your past as “mistakes”, is not. Do you understand our differentiation? [Lights_Edge] I believe so… [Michael_Entity] If further elaboration is required, we will work with you independently. Thanks Michael. That would help. [Mary936] Could you give the Role and Soul age of the four major presidential candidates: George W Bush, John McCain, Al Gore, and Bill Bradley? Hope this is not too off topic. [Michael_Entity] George: Scholar/Sage; Early Mature John: Sage/Scholar: Late Young Al: Scholar/Sage: Early Old Bill: Sage/Priest: Early Mature We will offer a disclaimer here as this forum is not conducive to receiving Overleaves. We will give these to Otterly independent of the chat session so as to clarify. Especially considering the end of a lengthy session online. [bcwatson] Can you tell us why NASA keeps losing very expensive space vehicles trying to study Mars? Is there something going on that we humans don't know about? [Michael_Entity] Human consciousness, collectively, have agreed that outer space exploration, however intriguing, is simply not the priority. Many on your planet have determined that the Earth they live on must be tended to first. This creates great challenges for any off-planet travels. It has been this way since the late 80's. The Harmonic Convergence (as it was called) created this limitation. It is a valid and “responsible” approach to your future as a maturing species. [bcwatson] So the planet is more than a place for us to live on while we learn. It is also a lesson about taking care of our planet that we need to learn? [Michael_Entity] Yes, as your species matures, the devic forces and hive souls discontinue their participation. It is then the sentient species' responsibility to steward the life forces. This can be seen in any individual life as well. As you mature, the sense of “being taken care of” tends to leave. This is part of “growing up”. It is the same for an entire species and planetary evolution. [bcwatson] What does Michael see as the first thing, the most important thing we as humans need to correct as far as taking care of the earth… [Michael_Entity] The plants and animals will not miraculously survive all that it is subjected to as over the past 6 million years or so. They will require your participation in their sustenance and insurance. We have always seen overpopulation as your highest priority for management. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
MICHAEL SPEAKS Transcript 110909 Michael Entity: Hello to each of you. We are here with you now. QUESTION: Will Michael please comment on Drunvalo Melchizedek's claims and the flower of life seminar about mass ascension into Christ Consciousness around 2012? Michael Entity: We see this as yet another fantastical, yet attractive, interpretation of a rather insignificant, non-event for the sake of emotional and material capitalization. We say this as a matter of basic fact, and not to cast a negative light on such things. It is quite satisfying to many to have an imaginary end-point toward which to focus personal evolution, and 2012 has been co-opted, interpreted, and hung out as a banner of warning or hope by nearly every angle of spirituality. Simple questioning and investigation can often clarify these ominous predictions to show that there is no validity, so when one is quite willing to "play along" with these scenarios, one has determined that there is some kind of value in that game, or at the very least, a resonance to internal fears that are in need of addressing. As long as calendars exist along with Young and Mature Souls within a population, there will be impending doomsday dates to impose dramatic descriptions for undramatic shifts. QUESTION: Does that mean "ascended masters" did not create a Christ Consciousness grid around the earth and that there will not be a group "awakening"? Michael Entity: We would not be so conclusive as to say "no," but we will say that this interpretation and imagery is rather embellished. Some fragments find theatrical imagery appealing, and the personifications help some to open to support from non-physical guides. From many mythologies, templates are generated from the imagery and then fragments can use those to attract and funnel legitimate support, with entities and fragments playing the role offered by the template. For instance, there is no "Zeus," or "Goddess" per se, but one can use that template as a funnel for Astral fragments and entities to work through. The "ascended masters" are another network of templates that are used by multiple Astral fragments and entities. "Archangel Michael," for example, is not the same source for every group who works with that template. These templates act as accessible, larger-than-life roles within a fragment's life that helps one to connect or resonate to support and forces beyond the immediately-tangible. Even the Judeo-Christian "God" is merely a mythological template. We, ourselves, used the template of "The Sun God" in the Oracles of Delphi as a means to work with our students at the time. Once personification is involved with a non-physical teacher, or source, a template is born and up for grabs for people to use as a medium of contact with entities willing to play the role described by that template. In some cases, that template is used as a means for housing the divided elements of the incarnated person attracted to it. For example, our own name has become a template, and some who claim to channel us simply use that template to deliver their own messages and ideas in the hopes of validating their own perceptions, sense of value, while securing an audience and using the built-in credentials. QUESTION: Speaking of fantastical, yet attractive new aged teachings, does Michael consider A Course in Miracles to be a creation for the purpose of emotion and material capitalization? Michael Entity: We will say that there is personally-valuable information within Drunvalo Melchizedek's and A Course in Miracle's teachings, regardless of the validity of the information, and the use of highly-profitable marketing tactics. We merely responded with a random comment, as requested, and we do see the theatrics of 2012 to be purely for marketing, as that year has no significance in terms of any Mayan Calendar calculations. QUESTION: In Michael's observation/experience are the dramatic descriptions used for the polarity shifts and the earth wobble simply exaggerations for undramatic shifts? Michael Entity: Observations of potential, impending shifts, such as what has come to be known as "global warming," or "earth wobble," or "polarity shifts," meteor impacts, shifts in mass consciousness, etc, are valid to some degree, however, these kinds of events are not on a schedule that can be marked in any way that is predictable at this point, and most of these are shifts that would take longer than any single lifetime. We will add, though, that because of the amount of emphasis on 2012 by such a large mass of consciousness, we do see a high potential for "something" to be significant, though it would most likely be interpreted differently for different groups, depending on their view of reality. QUESTION: This will seem off the wall but I have a reason for asking it: I understand you do not predict so I am interested in probabilities. If an encounter had been planned in, say, oh the next 2 years by what would be considered to us "alien" in nature, it would seem like those plans would have already been put into place due to logistical reasons. Is there a high probability in say the next 2 years of alien contact here on Earth? If so, where would this species be coming from and what are their intentions? Michael Entity: Alien contact has already become a rather substantial part of your world, albeit in ways that are not obvious to the population. There are many reasons for its not being a part of the world-at-large, most reasons being that it is illegal, so to speak, by standards set among traveling species. "Official" contact is with small groups and has a long-term goal that is intended for slow reveal and acclimation, but there are problems that continue to come up for that plan, moving the debate toward a sudden reveal as being more practical. The debate of "sudden vs slow" has been on the table for nearly 30 years, regularly stalled because of world politics that reveal the inherent dangers that already exist among humans toward each other, let alone toward an off-planet species. Your species is seen as extremely vulnerable and dangerous, and nothing in recent history has suggested otherwise to sway the debate. QUESTION: Can you elaborate of the types of small groups? Michael Entity: Though we described the contact with off-planet species as "substantial," we will clarify that it has been minimal in the "official" contexts. The debates are among the off-planet species. There are no regular board meetings with Humans. The "official" contact has been made with military groups, as most already suspect. Tests and observations will continue in the forms of "crop circles" and through observing your media portrayal in both fiction and non-fiction of off-planet species, and various other ways, along with the debate. Those most interested in your well-being are the same circle of species who helped relocate your species here long ago as a means to protect you from extinction. Most of what we are conveying to you is incapable of being validated, so we do not ask you to "believe" us, as we do not ask this of you for any part of our teaching or sharing of our perception. QUESTION: My question concerns overleaves on the Assimilation axis in general, and the Goal of Flow in particular. Michael have said that you can shift from the Negative Pole of an overleaf by using the Positive Pole of the complementary overleaf on the same axis. But with Assimilative overleaves, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out which Positive Pole would be most appropriate to consider depending on the situation. Is there a way to figure that out easily, especially in relation to the Goal of Flow? Michael Entity: We would first say that the Goal of Flow would naturally gravitate toward that which would help lead to Flow, without having to be so strategic, so our first suggestion would be to look at your personal history of choices that led to a sense of freedom. This would bring some personal clarity to your natural process. Next, we would suggest that when one wants to bring an awareness to the process of moving from the negative pole of an Assimilative Overleaf to the positive pole of another overleaf, you would ask yourself if your situation calls for ACTION, EXPRESSION, or INSPIRATION. Once that question has been answered in a way that feels fairly accurate, then one would ask if the situation calls for a focused or broader (ordinal/cardinal) solution. An easier way to interpret this line of questioning might be: Do I need to DO, FEEL, or BE something as a means to be Free? And does this require immediate focus, or long-range planning? For example, with Observation: Do I need to DO, FEEL, or BE something as a means to see with Clarity? And do I require immediate clarity, or a higher clarity? And finally, we would say that you could "throw a dart" at your Overleaf chart and any positive pole would be an effective path from the negative pole of your primary Overleaf. One CANNOT go "wrong" in choosing any positive pole for use in returning to a sense of True Personality and manifestation of Essence. ALL Positive Poles are resonant with every other Positive Pole, therefore allowing a move from one Overleaf to another with ease. QUESTION: Hello Michael, I know that several of us here today are Cadre 1 Entity 2, could you elaborate on how this cadre/entity is manifesting itself, what we are teaching in our current global community? Michael Entity: Cadre 1, Entity 2 appears to be manifesting itself, as usual, in the struggle and implementation of Stability over Balance. Nearly every fragment from that Entity over the physical age of 20 has "pulled back from life" in a way that is figuratively holding Balance in one hand, and Stability in the other. All Entity 2s struggle within the spectrum between Balance and Stability, and eventually the Entity, collectively, "gets it" and a wave of realization moves among the members. Currently, the majority of Entity 2 members of Cadre 1 appear to be in a state of limbo, unsure of how to go forward with Stability in "the real world." Withdrawing from life, so to speak, has given the glimpses of Stability that can now begin to make sense as feasible. How to bring that back out into the world of "living life" still escapes most of the members currently exploring this. What most Entity 2 members learn to do is the equivalent of placing two feet on a plank of wood that rests on a ball, teetering and rocking and rolling on that ball, feet planted squarely, and as long as one does not fall, it passes as Stability. However, all energy goes into just staying atop the ball, and this tends to be exhausting, and most eventually "fall" (get ill, have an accident, move into crisis) as a means to just get some rest, because despite the fact that those experiences are often traumatic, they at least offer a stability that is not a part of life when balancing atop the ball. Stability is when the ball is removed, and both feet are, figuratively. on solid ground. We describe this to you as a process, and not as one way being better than another. Many Entity 2 members will gladly state how exciting the Balance on the ball can be, and the "falling off" gives life meaning. Balance is a state that requires division within for the sake of managing the life. Stability is when the life comes into a state of wholeness that does not require compartmentalization, division, juggling, etc. We know many members of Entity 2 are extremists. Extremism is a form of Balance, going from one extreme to another on a regular basis. All or Nothing. Eventually the realization comes that life does not have to be "all or nothing." This spectrum of manifestation described for Entity 2 is not unfamiliar to many fragments who are not a part of an Entity 2, so this information may be applicable to you, regardless of your Entity number. However, our descriptions for Entity themes do describe the inherent, condensed, and consistent priorities of an Entity within a Cadre. Entity 2 of Cadre 1 is currently themed in the reality and implementation of "growing up," or being a "grown up," regardless of the age of the Personality. Stability, "growing up," and manifesting Soul Age, which has regularly been equated with something akin to death for many in Entity 2, is now starting to be seen as something appealing, even if that appeal is confusing. The teachings of Entity 2, then, could be described as themed in "how to sustain and nurture innocence and joy along with the process of maturing." QUESTION: Could Michael please comment on the experiences of Carl Jung as documented in his recently released “Red Book”? In particular, I'm curious to hear about how Jung induced the "active imaginations" as described in this book. Michael Entity: Jung merely observed a natural phenomenon of the culture of beliefs that are inclined toward personification, and in observing this, sought to harness it. We do not see any particular method for his inducing active imaginations, though he does appear to have developed cues to help, but rather he allowed room for that natural tendency in his therapies. This was revolutionary to some extent since these factors were not given any validity before his theories. We will also add that our channel has not read the book in question, so our comments are limited to our access to, and interpretation of, Jung's records. QUESTION: What are the 7 levels of 'true" mastery on the side of truth ??? ...is there a group collective consciousness occurring, as, well, as, a ...collective consciousness of all the assortment of 7 levels of a fragment ...(where one can tap into going back to an infant - to the current manifested age, ...and, even forward to the ultimate return to the tao) consciously, and, unconsciously- ...as, if past-present-future and now, are occurring in The Pivot of The NOW ? or, does love/and, energy also factor into the sum total (since, it is a trine/or trinity) 3 aspects of a cadre/entity Michael Entity: The 7 stages of Mastery would be the same for all fragments, and this might be described as the process that is the set of Overleaves called GOALS, or in words that are more relevant, such as Focus, Refinement, Commitment, Flexibility, Affection, Meaning, and Embodiment. We also add that these are facets, not stages. The experience of a fragment within the structure of Time can use "the now" as a pivotal point for accessing future and past, though not necessarily in any literal way. The experience of Time is an Emotional reality, so when one "goes back in time," one can affect the present by altering the interpretation an experience of the past. It is true that there is "only the now," and that it is a pivotal power point. In our teachings, we simply use the word "choice" in place of "the now," as Choice is the active element in the experience of time, past, future, and present. QUESTION: Hello Troy/Michael entity. I have a three part question that hopefully will be beneficial to the whole group. I had a personal experience not too long ago with the drug Salvia Divinorum. It is said that drugs like Salvia D and DMT take you to a "different dimension" and I was wondering what happened to me/where I went in my Salvia D experience, how exactly these type of drugs work, and if Michael believes these types of drugs (Salvia D and DMT) are beneficial to aid in the process of "spiritual awakening" because my experience with Salvia D definitely sent me down a path towards my current spiritual awakenings and also to the Michael Teachings. =) Michael Entity: Banging one's head into a wall, or dancing on a mountain top, can also bring a spiritual awakening, so we see all elements of life as potential tools for growth, including drugs. The drug in question appears to stimulate a combination that lowers inhibition and generates increased sensitivity to one's internal symbolism in a way that can be interpreted as "spiritual" and "safe" to explore. We see this as being a means to actively dream, so to speak, and those who actively explore dream imagery (without drugs) can easily share similar spiritual revelations. The use of the drugs in question would be a path of exploration one must choose to explore on one's own, but we can only say that results would vary among those who choose it. Drugs used for active "spiritual" exploration are often proportionally effective to the degree that one has become inhibited in the Personality. The more inhibited one is, the more profound the experience of the release from inhibition might be. In that regard, the choice to explore this option is valid, though one is never guaranteed a profound revelation by accessing what has become hidden. Often that access can be terrifying and even crippling to the life. QUESTION: Years ago in another Michael chat group, there was a lot of discussion about a time in Tonga where there were lots of us Michael students around. While I could certainly relate to the appeal of a beach lifetime, was this valid? I've not seen anything about this since. Michael Entity: It is valid that many students passed through that region in a group for a while as a means to explore Re-evaluation, but because of the nature of a simplified lifetime, it does not "register" high in the "memory" of a current Personality. QUESTION: Would the Michaels care to comment on the channelings of Muhammad, since I feel that it's probable he was a channel rather than what is accepted as a religious prophet. I'd also welcome the Michaels' take on the Islamic mantra "Lakum dinnakum, wallya din" - "to you be your way, and to me be mine" in the context of the push for Islam to dominate the western lifestyle via the enforced implementation of Shariah law which, by Qur'anic implication, should simply be passively available to those who choose to follow it rather than being a requirement. Michael Entity: This King-Cast Priest fragment represented the totality of one reunited Entity's perspective and was, indeed, a Transcendental Soul. We remind you that a Transcendental Soul, unlike an Infinite Soul, is still subject to Maya and Chief Features, and this fragment never rose beyond his Chief Features of Martyrdom and Greed. The imprinting from Artisans and Warriors around this fragment from their wounded views of their position relative to authority, and their lot in life, began the distortion of the teachings that were originally intended for a rise in confidence among the weak, poor, and helpless. The teachings began to attract those who resonated strongly to victimization and their fear of not having enough, turning the teachings into a path paved by resentment and defense, which continues to color the teachings to this day. The mantra quoted might be one of the few moments of clarity from the Priest's entity, but even this mantra was corrupted with a force that best be summed up as an addendum of "....as long as your way is also mine." Muhammad is one of 5 Transcendental Souls of the Common Era. One Transcendental Soul of the 5 who had any significant "positive" effect as intended was that of Gandhi. We will conclude here. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
Janet posted a topic in 2000 Michael SpeaksFebruary 3, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Conscious Connection to Essence [Otterly = Troy] Note: This series begins with Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (1 of 3) and concludes with Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3). [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Welcome to you all. We will begin. What we will do tonight, in light of the topic, is take your questions. We believe an open dialogue may find some insights being gained through exchange. We are preparing a larger work of channeling with Otterly that you will see in the next few days. This piece is being asked of us as a means to understand the different “paths” that might be relevant for each Role. This is too large of a topic to cover in a time-limited chat, but we can respond, nonetheless. Absorption of the material will be more comprehensive, as well, as you read it at your leisure. With that, we will begin taking your questions. For now, we will take questions on the topic of gaining a heightened sense of connection to Essence. If there are no questions, we have a not so easily fatigued Sage working with us and can find as much to give him to say as he can himself. We will give you a moment to decide. [ksh] What influences the motion of dowsing with a pendulum? Is it cycled off members of your entity trying to communicate with you? [Michael_Entity] If you choose for it to be. The mechanical aspects of this, along with the biological aspects of this, are simple and random. Anything chosen as a symbol for communication with Essence (or other Essences) can be utilized. Messages can be found in the layering of cheese on a pizza, if that is a medium you relate to. This is a valid means for seeking communication with Essence, choosing your symbols; choosing what makes sense to you as a Personality. In choosing this, you will pass through an initial phase of randomness until you synchronize with what you are using as your symbols. Your pendulum swings may be the meaningless rhythms of your latest nervous state at first, but later, even if in the same state, your “meaningless rhythms” can then become decipherable, even if only by you. This may or may not be with the help or influence of discarnate fragments. In keeping with the topic we will ask, if each of you were to choose a symbol, a means for messages to be relayed from Essence, what resonates with you? [TCB] I was wondering about the average soul ages of the Oracles at Delphi? Also, how those ‘experiences’ might be brought to bear now upon the various *participants*, at the current soul ages? [Michael_Entity] Most of you have been within one level of your current Soul Age since the last manifestation of the Infinite Soul. For the thousand years approximately before the manifestation, those of you present here, moved only one or two soul levels. Many of you have been incarnating for nearly 6 million years. This gives you a larger scope of the process of living lives and transiting Soul Levels. Though some of you feel a sense of urgency or weariness at the game, Essence enjoys nearly it all. It strolls through your incarnations ecstatic, in most cases. As far as the experiences from past lives, the lifetime that will affect you or is relevant, affects you with or without conscious awareness. Many of the experiences “gained” in the lives at Delphi are complete experiences and have no bearing in your present. What the Essence gains, is not necessarily what a current Personality can utilize or make sense of. Though many of you completed lives in Greece during this great influential time, there are but a few who still remain linked to that time in terms of influences now. We are speaking in terms of your “list” and its members. Next question. [Arinna] When I am channeling my higher self (essence) how can I get my personality’s consciousness out of the way as much as possible? Also, when I feel that shift in energy within myself – is that my essence causing that? [Michael_Entity] In answer to your first question: you will never be able to “get your personality's consciousness out of the way”. Your consciousness IS your Essence connection. The key is in learning to trust your Personality and work with its thoughts, feelings, and motion. When settling in to “channel” your Essence, you are merely deciding to gather a larger perception. When connected to Essence consciously, it is not necessarily a revelation or a significant shift or breakthrough. The state is so natural some dismiss what has occurred. There will be a shift in energy, and this will be as significant as you require as a mark for your connection. This is your body/Personality's design, not Essence's. The “shift” you speak of is a harmonious, clear mark for you and it works. Many choose this method. There is as much Essence involved in a fist fight as there is in a charismatic guru, when consciousness and choice are aligned. When sitting next in your session to connect more consciously to Essence, simply want to, and it will be. Within that moment, all any of you have to do to remain connected consciously, is to choose consciously. We will define “consciously” here as “with awareness”, but there are other ways to define. When every decision you make as Personality is done with consciousness, Essence is present. When you find yourself happy, Essence is present. Whether you are indulging in eating a bucket of ice cream, doing horrific acts of violence, or singly sweetly with a friend… if chosen consciously and with intent, Essence is present. The mark for rejection of Essence, or blocking of Essence can be seen in any sense of contraction in your life, or area of your life. We realize we have moved into a tangent, but we feel it is relevant. Essence can be present, for instance, in your art or creativity alone, but is rejected or blocked in a relationship to a spouse. Essence “backs off” from areas of your life where the Personality has chosen to do things its own way. We will ask here, before continuing with questions, if we have answered Arinna's question to a degree acceptable. [Lights_Edge] What are some examples of common old soul beliefs and emotions that limit our conscious connection to essence? [TCB] Please excuse me…but just to clarify something, when you said two ‘soul levels’, did you mean “soul ages?” Or soul levels? (within the 7 Stages?) [Michael_Entity] We will answer Terrence first, but are aware of Terri's question. We will answer that following. Common Old Soul beliefs are: that you all already “know it all”, especially relative to the “poor little young souls”. That you deserve a financially abundant life free from effort; that your peers (other Older Souls) are weird (even as you appear weird to them); that you are from another planet. (We speak of this last one relative to its preoccupation.) Others are, that you are alone; that you do not fit in; that you must suffer; that if you can just ride out this life, it will all be over; that you are “tired”; that you are done. These are just a few. We realize each of you will have your versions of these and others, as well. When these beliefs (or ones you identify) can become acknowledged, we suggest the fastest way to reconnect to Essence would be through laughter, pleasure, or through tears. These three biological functions are directly related to contact with Essence, and in most instances, a “pure connection”. We mean “pure” in the sense that it is quite difficult to be self-judging in the moment of actual true tears, true laughter or true pleasure. As we have said in many instances with your little group, tears are the biological reaction to Truth. We now add that Laughter is the biological reaction to Oneness (Energy/Beauty), and Pleasure is the biological reaction to Love. We will answer Terri's question now. We referred to the 7 stages when we said each of you has transited approximately one or two soul levels from the one you are in presently. [MaryBV] Getting in touch with essence seems like such a BIG question. I am wondering if as younger souls we incur karma and work on monads and the like to throw up roadblocks for us to pull down as we get older. In other words, as we move away the debris of our younger days, are we in fact starting the lesson of the older levels which is to re-remember our essence? And in answer to the question about resonance I believe I resonate with my essence through music. [Michael_Entity] You are correct in many ways, Mary. “Re-remembering” is a valid term in this instance. The Old Soul phase can be said to be the age of comprehending all consequences. Studying your Role will give you more and more insights into your “essence”. No other aspect in your dynamics can clarify that remembering as much as your Role. Many of you have become very adaptable over the eons. This means you are less inclined to manifest your Essences as you see fit. Instead, you rely on this single Personality that “you” are to comprehend all that has come to pass as a Soul. The key is in freeing the personality from this distraction. This is why we feel past lives, though valid, more often lay a burden on many of you in ways that are difficult to comprehend or validate. There are some functions that are of Essence, and some that are of Personality's. Differentiating these functions can lend more freedom to both. Personality wants to live. It is alive NOW in the most important sense it will ever know. By treating yourselves (Personality) as something to be overcome, set aside, tamed, or controlled, you are missing the point. You are Essence's eyes, hands, feet, heart… everything you delight in, so does Essence. For each Essence there are simple ways to take delight in a life. In that delight, there are ways to build more conscious connections. Building on delight brings the laughter and tears and pleasure. As we have said before, Happiness is a navigational tool for the body while on the physical plane. We will point out that happiness does not mean you are merely smiling and content. Even in the worst of situations, they can technically be contextually happy since there are aspects of you that “understand”. To help in re-remembering your Essence, we think these few keywords may be of some assistance in navigating toward delight: For the Expressive Roles, Sages and Artisans take delight in playing, goofing off. For the Inspirational Roles, Priests and Servers take delight in helping, guiding, caring for, discussing. For the Action Roles, Kings and Warriors take delight in challenges, commitment, and sexuality. For the Assimilative Role, the Scholar delights in knowing, understanding, and learning. They can also refer to Casting. Although these delights are not exclusive nor complete, they are helpful in reminding you of what Essence delights in, and this can be compared to when you, as Personality, may be filtering or dismissing that delight. [nemo999] Regarding symbols, does essence have a natural language instead of words, I am thinking of thoughts, feelings, pictures instead of English or Chinese for example? [Michael_Entity] The Language of Essence is transparent, so to speak. It is relative to the listener. Essence cannot communicate any other way. On the Astral, it is understood that you will never “see” the true Essence you are communicating to, unless you resonate. Otherwise, every Essence sees its version of other Essences that makes the most sense of the energy that is “other”. Therefore, while physical, Essence will appear, communicate, behave, in whatever fashion the personality imposes or chooses. This is why we suggest being conscious of what you feel is symbolic of Essence. This will heighten your conscious connection. The idea of Power Animals is a valid means to achieve this. Choosing a number that then shows up occasionally on clocks, receipts, etc. This is a valid reminder and connection to Essence. There are a multitude of ways and you may create many paths for these. And then there will finally be the symbolic realization that you can simply BE your Essence, meaning, after you have begun building a foundation of trust and validity as to what your Essence is, you may then simply ACT as Essence. [TCB] Clarification Question: You said that the lives in Delphi are ‘complete experiences’. I understand this, yes. But I would like clarification on why you said that they ‘have no bearing’ on this life, in terms of essence. It seems to me that all completed essence experiences would be available to be ‘drawn from’ in the current life, if one chooses to make such ‘contact’ with that ‘past experience’ and learning gained. Just wanted to get some clarification. [Michael_Entity] We never said that the experience had no bearing on Essence, only on the present lifetime, referring to the Personality. You are correct that all gained experiences as Essence are accessible to any lifetime. If one were to choose to connect to that lifetime, it is the fragment's choice. In lifetimes where an experience is completed, it is rare that Personality can gain from drawing on it in the present, if the lifetime currently has no way to utilize the experiences. If the lifetime currently has a practical way to utilize a past life, it will be connected to it regardless anyway. We were answering your question in the form you asked it originally. And as far as the members of your group in the list go, only a few have incomplete experiences from those lives in Delphi. This means for most, there is little to be “brought to bear” from that time. We are gathering that you have some possible inclinations as to what the experiences were focused on in those lives. It may surprise you that they were far less spiritual than you might have guessed. Most from the list were not so metaphysically inclined, but were taking lives of Flow and Re-evaluation during a time when things were relatively secure. Creativity, sexual indulgence, spiritual perusal, were all able to be lavished into the heart's content of THAT Personality. Your Personality presently might find the means of the previous Personality's exploration to be rather repugnant. [TCB] Can't remembering such past lives serve to balance certain aspects of the current life experience, or ‘personality’, if so chosen? [Michael_Entity] This does not mean they cannot access or draw from those lives, if they choose. We only say that the context is entirely different in this time frame. We feel exploring past lives that have no relevance can be most useful if seen in terms of a soul's scrapbook. Otherwise, it is nearly the same as saying that what your Mother learned, so have you by default, or what your Sister learned, you can use as a skill. “YOU” are a completely different design than another life and it is distressing to the present you when compared or when seeking to draw skills that are “not yours”. This can be likened to a parent telling a child that they could be “more like your brother”. Understanding lives that are relevant, ones that will impact you with or without conscious exploration, this is where the breakthroughs are, where the talents and insights and motivations can be gained, and this happens without need for consciousness. But, as always, you may choose your explorations any way you feel inclined. We will conclude then. There will always be more to gain from exchanging on all of these topics. Goodnight.
