Michael Speaks Live January 26, 2014 Elaboration of Overleaves for 2014 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We understand the subject to be that of an elaboration on the Overleaves that we described as representing 2014. February 2014 Energy Report What we will do is begin with the "Energy Report" for February before elaborating further. As January comes to a close, there appears to be a new burst of energy available for most of our students. This is a burst of enthusiasm, creativity, optimism, literal energy, and motivation. This is because the Goal has now come to focus as an emphasis, and the weight of the Chief Features of the previous year have lifted for most. The Goal of Growth is the Goal for this year, and this would bring with it an emphasis on challenging yourselves, and moving you in directions away from any stagnation that may have been in place in some way in the life. The Goal of Growth is all about the process of bringing/creating/generating MEANING from your experiences. This is why it can seem so challenging and stretches the individuals who have this as a Goal in the Personality. It impels one to look beyond the superficial nature of an experience, relationship, event, and the self and into the greater value and point of those things. We know that many associated Growth with physical activity and challenges, but that is only one form of Growth. Growth is NOT an Action Goal. It is an Inspiration Goal. It has never been about Action, but because experience is most often cultivated by participation in the world and with people, it tends to lean toward experiences that involve Action. However, it is about the value and meaning that one extracts from that. In a year when Growth is in place, our students will tend to feel as if these are years when there are leaps in evolution, the Positive Pole, if the work of extracting Meaning is nurtured, but it can also be a year when there is a great deal of Confusion, an overwhelming state of non-direction and non-meaning because there is too much being processed. So February would appear to be that tipping point, if you will, toward this dance between Evolution and Confusion, depending upon how much one has taken on for processing. The amount one has taken on for processing at the beginning of this year appears to be dependent upon on how much was resisted in the past 2 or 3 years. If one has been moving along for the past 2 or 3 years at a pace that is avoiding or evading a sense of evolution and progress, dismissing the need for processing experiences, then 2014 might start off with a sense of overwhelm and Confusion, a "tsunami" of backlogged processing to be addressed. If one has been moving along for the past 2 to 3 years at a pace that has allowed for value and meaning to be extracted from various experiences, relationships, etc. and has not avoided the processes necessary for the sense of evolving, then 2014 will probably launch into a strange and beautiful wave of highly-active Astral explorations and "jam-packed" dreaming. Even if those dreams are not remembered, there would tend to be a sense that the dream state was highly active. This emphasis in the Astral and dreaming is directly linked to the fact that because one has dealt fairly well with the Physical Plane and its processes, then the work of Growth is happening in the Emotional/Inspirational body. This is why many of you may then be feeling this lift, this relief, and revitalized sense of enthusiasm and playfulness as February comes. In addition to this, because the year is Centered in the Intellect, most will feel a comfort and enthusiasm for sharing what is happening in the Emotional body, in dreams, in the Astral, in their Evolution, and even in their experiences of Confusion. So as February unfolds, we suggest to our students to "hold on to your hat," and "enjoy the ride," as the month will likely feel as if it speeds up and has high potential for great laughs, exchanges of inspiration, sharing of experiences, and authentic joy, even for those in Confusion. Helpful Thoughts over February might be: YES. THIS IS MY LIFE. The emphasis in that phrasing can be moved around to bring about different effects. YES! This is my life. or Yes. THIS is my life. or Yes. This IS my life. or Yes. This is MY life. or Yes. This is my LIFE! The phrasing with the emphasis that is most inspiring and acting as a reminder that you are the one who owns this life, and that you are the one who manages it, and that you are the one who has the power of choice in it, and that you are the one with the capacity for problem solving, creativity, and for extracting joy, playfulness, and MEANING from it. ...is the phrasing that you can use to remind you that you are the creator and navigator of this life. We caution against using any phrasing with emphasis that feels as if it is mocking and evasive of your responsibilities for choice and processes. DATES OF INTEREST: February 12 - 15: NEXUS (convergence) - this appears to be a parallel shift that is an emphasis on growing closer to those with whom one has been tentative, or has fallen into tentativeness. Barriers and inhibitions would likely drop to help bring fragments closer, as they are in other parallels. February 25: Energy Shift - we think there may be something brought to public awareness regarding discovery or speculative discovery regarding off-planet material on or around this date. It is another contributing factor to the wave of enthusiasm and inspiration wave. Overview of 2014 Now, in terms of an overview of the year ahead: We think most will remember 2014 as a "Good Year," as there is such a wave of Inspiration unfolding from several directions and among even the Young and Mature in Soul Age. Cooperation and breakthroughs regarding misunderstandings in politics and religion may even be prominently surprising. This is not to say that there will not be challenges, but that there would tend to be some breakthroughs that begin a trend of uniting factions as opposed to the path that has been so divisive. The factions that insist on remaining more insular and isolated would likely find themselves falling to states of implosion by the end of the year, or have lashed out in such a way that it actually secures a greater determination for others to unite. With Priest, Growth, and Passion manifesting within the year in ways that appear, so far, to be leaning toward the Positive Poles, a sense that this is a pivotal year toward "something better" might begin to cautiously be embraced. The Realism of the year would tend to help curb the more delusional or distracting elements that might otherwise eclipse the sense of Inspiration, Compassion, Evolution, and Self-Actualization. That Realism would allow for one to step back enough to know that delusional distractions are not the equivalent of an obligation for addressing. One can allow room for those with delusional distractions, and still stand in compassion. Because so much would likely be felt as having been experienced, processed, and integrated over 2014, it is likely that the Impatience of the end of the year would be either lifted entirely, or replaced. The most significant events of 2014 would likely be in terms of those factions that refuse to move forward with progress and process of the planet lashing out and displaying what we see as the middle stages of their "dying gasps." Two significant weather-related events, primarily involving surprisingly destructive and sustained winds, would appear to be a focus for a large portion of the population. A "celebrity" murder looks to be coming around as a focal point, as well. Surprising transformations in immigration laws and in legalization of marijuana appear to make great strides in the year ahead, as well. For the United States. We can share these highlights with you because they appear to be linked to Nexus throughout the year ahead, and while these still have a great likelihood of changing, these are fairly secure enough in their link to the current momentum that we can, at least, mention them. We will open the floor now for questions regarding the topic: ****** QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ****** [ViP] I have the same Role, Goal, and Mode as the respective collective energies for this year. How would this affect (if at all) how I experience the year and those parts of it with Goal and Mode in focus? MEntity: When a year is aligned with one's Overleaves to a great degree, or to one's Role, the year tends to go in one of two distinct directions: extreme challenge, or extreme progression. These are probably fair to say are the same things in the end, but the more challenging side would tend to come for those who have work to do regarding embracing more of their own power, choices, actions, etc. It is difficult to hide from who and how one is in a year that is emphasizing one's very nature overall. If those challenges are seen as beneficial, then there is the progression. Progression is a sense of relief and movement forward in the life in a way that seems almost pre-planned and guided from levels of the self that are not as tangible as your every day self. A progressive year is a matter of listening to oneself, to following impulses and pleasures and being honest. The sense of struggle, in terms of "challenge" is only felt if the focus from the self is on continuing to hide from who and how one is. The sense of progress, then, in terms of "progression," is felt when one builds on who and how one is. [brian] You mentioned that 2014 might start off like a tsunami. Will there be any more waves of destruction, or how might you recommend getting back on the board and surfing the next one? MEntity: First, we would suggest for those who have experienced this break of resistance against avoidance and evasion to be one of CONSTRUCTION, not DESTRUCTION. It is a clearing away of debris that may be the equivalent of hoarding, or at least the debris as a by-product of hiding. Looking at the chaos of the breakthrough as constructive would help one to tap into the inspiration and creative problem solving that is necessary for infusing the experience with meaning that is useful and helpful, rather than as degrading and undermining. THAT is your "surfboard," then: the optimism of possibility even from among the debris, and even in the midst of cleaning up that debris. Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. It is quite difficult to build from within Chaos, and to build patterns, if one resigns from the responsibility of Growth, or put another way, resigns from the responsibility of creating and bringing value and meaning to an experience. We cannot say if there will be other breakthroughs for those who are starting the year with them. We doubt there will be. We think most prefer to work with the one that is enough. [Oscar] hey Michael Could you share any possible 2014 highlights for the Netherlands? MEntity: The Netherlands is often quite stable in its participation in the world, in terms of how collective energy manifests. That population is slow to bring great changes or challenges, with most of that being done "privately" and from within smaller groupings. We think most of the 2014 would appear to be fairly uneventful in terms of challenges, but we think there are several high-profile celebrations in store. There are a couple of Dutch Directors whose names may gain some more international attention in 2014, and a controversial artist who looks to bring up some debate within the local population. There appears to be a development project that is also under scrutiny and would lean toward either being dismantled or being altered to appease the public. We also see a breakthrough in scientific experimentation that comes from that area, and would fall into the category of "exciting." We cannot tell what it is, but it is of international consideration. The infrastructure regarding flooding is at a breaking point as 2014 passes, and this may come to be more relevant to the population as 2015 nears. We think these are bordering on predictions, so we will leave you with these higher probable events to note, though even those are not immune to alterations. [GeraldineB] Even though I think this was answered, I'd like to specifically ask: "What are the probabilities of having the Sochi Olympics either disrupted or halted due to violence? MEntity: We think the likelihood of disruption is high, at around 78% probability, with the likelihood of a halt being fairly low at 14%. There are, clearly, fragments who we can see are eager for this platform of expression for zealousness and confusion. They appear to be quite intent. If there is not the disruption due to violence, we would think there would be the disruption due to the intervention. We will conclude here for today. Good evening to all of you.
Hello, Troy! I know that our brains use dreams/dreaming to help us solve problems, entertain us, teach us lessons we otherwise can't learn in a conscious state, and so on - dreams are powerful, we can all agree! On that note... I'm wondering if you ever find yourself 1) dreaming about a channeling experience, or even, 2) actively channeling/receiving data from MEntity while dreaming, or have ever had 3) any frightening/upsetting/scary dreams involving channeling or channeling experiences. Dreams are one of my favorite things about life; I'm always interested in how other's experience sleep, and incorporate it back and forth between their conscious and unconscious-sleep states (how "being awake," or "being asleep," provide returns for the other state.) ...also I'm a nerd, and ask nerdy questions :) K
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 1999] [f1] Are all lucid dreams conscious astral experiences? [Michael_Entity] No, not from our perspective. There are three levels of dreaming: Symbolic, Astral, and Out of Body. There are more details within each of these and how they interact, but we do not have the length of time available to go into them here. Each of these levels could be described and experienced as “lucid”.
10Q - Feb 10, 2016 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. MikeClev: Hello :) This question is about the topic of Generational Karma. Could you describe how being in this "Mature" Age affects that era? How will being in an "Old" Age be different? Thanks. MEntity: During an Age, it tends to be the case that all events funnel into the securing of that Age into the populace. During this Mature Age, it is a process of breaking down barriers, emotional rawness, intensity, expanding boundaries while also strengthening any that have been ignored. It is about bringing about an awareness of collectivity, consensus, negotiation, compromise, and cooperation. Events tend to force the idea that "we are in this together, whether we like it, or not." This will be met with great resistance by those who prefer their own paths that do not account for the consequences upon others. The Mature Age, then, tends to be marked by an escalating intensity that is emotional in nature and brings the population to a turning point that finds a way to soothe those in desperate fear for their individual paths while still gaining collective momentum of empowerment. If this soothing of the younger souls is not addressed, then the turning point can be quite disastrous, but the turning point will come, regardless. At some point during an Age, the turning point comes, either with resistance/pain or with surrender/pleasure. The Old Age would be marked by a building upon or up from the turning point of the Mature Age and aim for how to implement collective responsibility and freedom. It tends to be an Age where true anarchy is in effect to some degree that allows order to rise up from chaos. If the momentum continues as we can see it, this will have been well under way with the advent of digital technology, virtual reality, and augmented reality, as "the world" shifts from geographical and national differentiations to a world organized by ideas and philosophies. All boundaries and privacy issues will have long been resolved, and life will not be limited to locality. The Internet is a precursor to the Old Age. There will be those who rise and fight against this by claiming that the quality of life is reduced by emphasizing digital interaction, but this will be met by the Old Age in the same way one might feared that the telephone would remove the necessity for actual contact, or that the use of digital music somehow cannot carry the experience of an actual concert. It will always be true that actual contact is important, but to expand beyond boundaries of geography and locality to form "nations" based in ideas and philosophies rather than territories is a natural progression. We can continue elaborating, but we know there are other questions. MikeClev: Thank you :) Evelin: Hello, Michael! Michael, you told me: "If we were to put a number to what is knowable and what is known in terms of Astronomy and Space, on a scale of 1 to 100, Humans are at 2." On the same 1 to 100 scale, what would be the number of what is known to Humans about 1) our Solar system 2) (how) the Sun (works), 3) what influences Earth's tectonics? MEntity: In terms of the Solar System, we would put the knowledge at 5. In terms of how the Sun works, we would put this at 6. In terms of Tectonics, we would put this at 10. Evelin: Lovely... room for growth! Thank you. MEntity: Very much so. Colleen: Hi Michael. What was the motive for the murder of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968? Who was behind it? MEntity: This was fairly straight-forward and not as mysterious in motivation. This was motivated by a group who felt betrayed by America and this was their attempt to make a point, to send a message, to try to get across the anger and desperation that was unfolding in the politics and conflicts that were affecting them. The fragment known to have committed the assassination was fairly forthright and open about his motivations, and we do not see these as scripted by force or by manipulation, other than in terms of how a group can bring influence when sharing in an emotion and pain. Colleen: So Sirhan Sirhan was part of the conspiracy. He claims he has no memory of the event. MEntity: The group has long since disbanded or members dead, but that anger that fueled this group exists even into today. This is not uncommon for those who are fueled by "crimes of passion," and this is included in that. Colleen: Was he the only shooter? MEntity: Once the buildup of intensity, anger, hatred, frustration, fear, etc. is released and has landed in some catastrophic way, the mind is suddenly with a void that was once filled with this singular objective. AnnH: Wow. MEntity: That is then either experienced as loss of memory, or is retroactively filled with a narrative that is fantasy or shaped from input of others. The fragment in question was not the only one. Three were moving in for the best opportunity. Depending on various parallels, each of these three or a combination caused the death. AnnH: So this happened in a number of parallels? MEntity: More that it generated various parallels. So, technically, yes. AnnH: OK Colleen: Thanks. PeterK: I am considering the field of virtual reality as a possible career direction, particularly in combination with data visualization and mobile devices. What advances in virtual reality are humans likely to achieve over the next ten years? MEntity: If there is no collapse, this industry is set to exponentially grow beyond what is in the general imagination at this time. Augmented and Virtual Reality is one of the "great solutions" that not only help to resolve the issues of resources and climate change, but also to herald a radical shift toward the Resource-based Economy. In ten years, if the patterns remain as we can see them now, your hardware will move from external and clunky to integrated, wearable, and neurologically powered. CLARIFICATION: this is not to say it will reach that state within the 10 years, but that it will be ever clearer that it is moving in that direction and feasible. It is a viable career. PeterK: Thank you very much. AnnH: This is personal which I hope can be enlarged into general. The topic could be Dreaming of the Dead. I have often dreamed of my late Task Companion parents who died in 2000 and 2004. In the past few years, I have dreamed of them often as being separated/divorced and having no contact with each other. Very different than their recent incarnated relationship. Recently in dreams it seems my mother has rejected all of her just past family. How do I go about understanding and resolving the choices and changes that those who I’ve known in this life have made now that they are no longer incarnate? What is up with these dreams of the dead? AnnH: Added: My dreaming self has been hurt by my mother's rejection. It's rather tedious. MEntity: In response to the first question: you are already working on that resolution, but the only missing element is your ACTIVE imagination. Currently, your passive imagination is playing out various scenarios, anxieties, fears, upturned memories, etc. These are rising up because they may be speaking to old, forgotten, or fantasy wounds that you can heal or fix by using your active imagination. Your active imagination requires you to correct your memories, to actively pull up clarification, or to actively replay the scenarios with different, preferred outcomes. For example: If you dream that your mother rejects you and this is painful, it may speak to when you actually did feel rejected, however subconscious or conscious that experience might have been, or it may speak to your grief of missing her but not having any way to truly hear from her to console you as you need mothering. AnnH: Or both :) MEntity: This is your passive imagination helping to bring to the surface that which your active imagination can heal. Using your active imagination is no less significant than your passive imagination. Imagine her presence, her best moments of loving, your moments of joy, your memories of touch and kindness and understanding when she was not at her best, and/or own your current need for mothering by taking care of yourself with obvious nurturing and kindness instead of neglect or escape. In short, you have control over the impact of experiences such as this by understanding that your passive imagination informs you, and your active imagination can help you. AnnH: Yes, thank you. MEntity: We must conclude here for today. We know this is a new format of exchange with you, and it brings with it potential for rather intimate exchanges with us. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
