  1. MICHAEL SPEAKS 061310 HOW GUIDES WORK Based on the request of Nicholas via the Topic Suggestion Forum: So many people around me talk about receiving information from their guides. Some seem to literally hear their guides and others seem to sense their guides. Recently I have met a healer who seems to follow most of his guides instructions, and I find the idea of that unsettling. I think it would be really helpful to explore this topic and gain clarity about who/what our guides are, how they interact with us, and what tend to be our illusions/delusions about the whole thing. MEntity: The topic of choice is one that presents a challenge to those in physical form, and we will do our best to offer solutions and practices that may be implemented for bridging the gap between the Physical and Non-Physical in terms of relationships. There is a multitude of relationships happening between your Essence and other Essences at any given time, many of which will have no real or obvious bearing on the Physical incarnation at the time. However, there are, for most Personalities, at least 4 Non-physical relationships of significance that have direct bearing on the life, whether acknowledged, or not. The first relationship of the 4, of course, being the one you have with “yourself,” with your own Essence. Beyond the obvious relationship with your own Essence, every fragment will have 3 Guides, one of which is a Primary Guide and chosen as a relationship that arcs across the entire lifetime. Two additional Guide POSITIONS are also always in place, though the fragments who fulfill those Positions may change across the lifetime. There are two ways to understand these three positions: The Primary Guide = LIFE GUIDE, with two additional Guides fulfilling the positions of RELATIONSHIP and EVENT Or PRIMARY GUIDE = INTELLECTUAL Guide, with two additional Guides fulfilling the relativity of the EMOTIONAL and ACTION Positions. ESSENCE would be the Assimilative or Neutral Guide, so to speak. The Life/Intellectual Guide would be directly accessed through the Attitude of the Personality. The Relationship/Emotional Guide is the guide who is currently on call for help with relationships, emotional issues, inspirational needs, etc. This guide is directly accessed through the Mode of the Personality. The Events/Action Guide is the guide who is currently on call for help with decisions, choices, navigation, directions, material issues, health, sex, etc. This guide is directly accessed through the Goal of the Personality. These three Positions, even if the guides change in two of them, will ALWAYS be a part of a lifetime; even your first lifetime will have these because they are populated by peers, and not necessarily by “higher beings,” or more intelligent, wiser beings. These are your friends. The fragment (or fragments) who fulfill the Primary/Intellectual Position is permanent for the lifetime, but the other two positions will have several Essences fulfill them over time, depending on the current life experiences at the time. All of the Positions can be populated by more than one fragment. As Essence evolves, the Guide Positions can tend to become quite populated by several fragments because acceptance of support is regarded as a form of evolution. The Primary, if it is populated by more than one fragment, will have that set of fragments for the entire lifetime. The additional Positions may have a set of fragments fulfilling them during one period of the life, and then rotate out to a new set over time. These flexible Positions can also have one or more fragment supporting a sub-context of Relationships, for instance, while others support another sub-context, so that you are supported, say, in Work Relationships, Intimate Relationships, Public Relationships, etc. However many Guides an incarnated fragment may have, the POSITIONS will always remain the same. This is because those positions are highly-specific to the basic contexts of any physical incarnation, and quite specific to the media (chakras) that are used for communication and exchange between the physical and non-physical. It will never be necessary for you to have tangible access to your guides for you to still receive the tangible effects of your relationship to your guides. In other words, in the same way that the most loving of friends can give you the most profound of support and insight and direction, it will always be YOU who makes the ultimate difference; in relationships with Guides, this is even truer. Your Guides cannot (and will not) interfere with, or intervene in, your life, and their physical impact can only be felt through your actions that fulfill any influence from those Guides. There are times that one's guides might seem to influence the Physical Plane in near-magical ways, leaving a fragment feeling as if there are profound powers in place, but beyond some instances of delusion, there are some unique instances of physical impact independent from you, but they are not exactly what they seem to be. We will elaborate on that another time. Now that we have shared the basic framework of how we see Guides organizing and working with incarnated fragments, we will respond more directly to the subject of accessing your guides more intimately, and the challenges and pitfalls that may be a part of that process. For most fragments, the tangibility and intimacy of a relationship with a Guide will never rise beyond the level of intimacy one has with his or her own Essence, and all forms of guidance will funnel through that relationship. The irony in this is that the more aligned one is with Essence, the less Essence is seen, or experienced, as a higher force, or guide that is accessed as existing beyond the wholeness of self. In other words, the more intimate one is with Essence, the less-obvious the gap between the Physical and Non-Physical, in terms of relationship with Essence and other Guides. Part of the process for gaining that level of intimacy does include a phase through which every fragment will most likely go in which the division between Physical and Non-Physical is quite pronounced and subject to personification, which can be experienced as a fairly profound, tangible relationship with the unseen. Even if Essence has gained that level of intimacy with a previous incarnation, a current incarnation will most likely go through that phase of differentiation before it accepts the lack of division as the medium for intimacy. The Stages of Differentiation in regard to non-physical relationships are similar to, if not parallel to, the stages of Soul Ages: Infant, Baby, Young, Mature, and Old. Keep in mind that these Stages of Differentiation are not specific to any Soul Age, so an Old Soul can be at any Stage of Differentiation described below. Once a fragment has begun to ponder the possibility that there may very well be "spirit guides," and other non-physical influences, it launches into that exploration from an Infant Stage of approach, laced with superstition, fear, resistance, etc. Spirits are seen as vague forces, mythological figures, ancestors, curses, demons, etc. However they are interpreted, they are regarded with fear that either requires protection or great respect. The Baby Stage of Differentiation begins to "hear voices," see omens everywhere, take the relationship in most literal terms, relaying the insights as if coming from instructional forces. This Stage regards these relationships as superseding individual choice, and regardless of Soul Age, will often feel that these spirits hold far more authority over life than any incarnated being. The Young Stage of Differentiation begins to emphasize the relationship to non-physical forces as one that requires sharing that relationship in a way that instructs and guides others, usually with great emphasis on urgency, timelines, looming shifts, etc. This Stage is marked by rallying others to listen to what is being shared, prompting either anxiousness or exciting anticipation, usually regarding upcoming “shifts,” or other looming change on the horizon that requires instruction, intangible experiences, heavy submersion in the imagination as a sanctuary of escape or hope. The Mature Stage of Differentiation is the first time true intimacy begins to occur with these non-physical relationships. The Mature Stage softens the differentiation and begins to blur the lines between self and Guides. That blurring is a confusing stage because what seems so defined, literal, and tangible by other reports coming from "younger" stages of differentiation, now seems illusory, imaginary, suspicious. This is a stage filled with questioning, discernment, and even the clearest of communication is scrutinized and held up for validation. Two things begin to emerge in the Mature Stage of Differentiation: One is the intimacy that we have already described as blurring, and the other is the realization that one has the skill to tap into one's own innate wisdom and resources as opposed to depending on the influences of others. The Mature Stage, ironically then, has most of one's guides turning the fragment back to his or her own self as its own guide. Rather than instructions or influence being given in response to the question of "What Should I Do?" it is met with the response equivalent to "Well, what Do YOU Think/Feel You should Do?" Guides are now seen as positions of support, rather than as positions of force and resource. An Aside: These same Stages of Differentiation can also be found in ones methods for relating to the physical relationships of support in ones life. The Old Stage of Differentiation would find the relationship with one's Essence and Guides to have lost all boundaries, nearly all differentiation, and to have moved into a relationship we might describe as "soft intuition." We use the phrase "soft intuition" because, for the most part, the fragment will have grasped that he or she is supported, loved, and that there are forces and resources at work that will take care of the non-physical aspects of the life so the Personality is free to focus on the living of life. The "soft intuition" is the general tuning in to the self and to guides that allows for alerts, sensations, cues, synchronicity, etc. that help in the various contexts of life. However, as in the Old Soul Age of living, it includes all previous Stages of Differentiation, so that the fragment can, if necessary, call upon Guides for help, insight, force, resource, guidance, etc., but this is usually done from a different angle than ever before, in that even when this support is called upon for more tangible effects, it is understood that those tangible effects will have to come from your implementation of the insights, guidance, influence, etc. There is no urgency, no fantastical representations, no necessity for theatrics, no call to rescue the world, no secrecy, no recruitment, no warnings, no advice or instruction, etc. There is only support, insight, guidance, resource, and force to the extent that one receives, translates, and expresses that through oneself. Understanding these Stages of Differentiation, one can now see how the evolving intimacy with ones Guides and Essence begins to lose the imposed personifications and “magical” power that is brought to the interpretations of those same relationships earlier on. The Stages most susceptible to Delusions would be those of the Baby and Young Stages. The Stages most lacking in tangibility and obvious force would be the Mature and Old Stages. In regard to accessing your Guides: We mentioned previously that your Primary/Intellectual/Expression/Life Guide is accessed through your ATTITUDE; Your Emotional/Inspirational/Relationship Guide through your MODE; your Moving/Action/Events Guide through your GOAL. Understanding this can help you to bring awareness to how/where to look/feel for the relationship that exists between you and your Guide/s. For instance, as you wish to find a more sensory relationship with your Life Guide Position, it will be found most obvious in your primary philosophies about your life. How you interpret your life can be helped by your Primary Guide. If you find you are interpreting your life as something "that sucks," for instance, it can be helpful to call upon your Primary Guide for help in lifting some of the psychic obstructions that block your ability to interpret life more accurately as the beauty that it is. The "tangibility" of that relationship can be acknowledged during or after the help has taken place, but it would most likely show up as a bright moment of insight, clarity, possibility, etc. If that moment is dismissed, it will not have meant that there was no support, but that you chose not to use it or acknowledge it. If you find your greatest distraction in your life is your lack of relationship with others, you can call upon your Relationship/Emotional Guides to help set up your Agreements, secure them, attract them, etc. This help would most likely show up as impulses for attending certain events, running an errand, reaching out, taking a risk, being vulnerable, etc. The fact that you may choose to stay safe in your isolation, or may default to presumptions about your attractiveness based on your patterns of the past, or may ignore impulses, then it is not that you did not have tangible exchanges with your Guide/s, but that you simply dismissed them. And, of course, similar scenarios could be said as examples for your Events/Action/Goal Guide/s. Your Primary Guide/s can most-easily be accessed through ORACLES, such as Tarot, Astrological Transit interpretations, iChing, and other systems of synchronicity that provide opportunities for interpretation, insight, and higher perspectives. Your Emotional/Relationship Guide/s can most-easily be accessed through DREAMS, which may or may not be recalled. Dreams (Astral Plane) provide a meeting ground for all fragments, physical or non-physical. Your Events/Action Guide/s can most-easily be accessed through OTHER PEOPLE. By this we mean that support, direction, help from your own Guides can often be delivered through the help you seek through physical people, which often requires asking for that help, reaching out, letting people know you need them. The changes that can come from that are often the result of support that your Action Guides can provide because of the actions being taken by more people involved. Combining all of these is your built-in non-physical support for any incarnation. Of course, we have much more to say on this subject, but we will say in conclusion to this response at this time, that the ability to discern the validity of support from a Guide must simply be learned from experience. There is no short cut. In other words, you may consult your Tarot and find that your interpretation did not lend the insight and clarity that you thought was so obvious in your reading, but this is not a sign to halt your attempt at insight through that relationship, instead it is an invitation to continue practicing, observing, and learning to differentiate between projection, and true communication. The same could be said of you and any of your relationships. [QUESTION] Would it be correct then to say that as one evolves through the stages, their guides begin to lose importance, as the individual is beginning to act as their own guide? [MICHAEL] We would say that it is no different from the relationships one has in one's own physical life: growing older and wiser does not equate relationships growing less important, but that the relationships grow free from the clutter of dependency, imposition, personification, projection, expectation, etc. Relationships with physical or non-physical beings are often like the process of learning how to boat on the open waters: at first, all of the influences are scary, powerful, and seem to have a direct force upon the boat, directions, and experiences of the ride. As one learns to work with those forces, one develops the tools for directing and harnessing those forces. Eventually, you are taking to the waters with oar, rudder, motor, sails, etc., and all of your choices are your own, using your own tools, going where you want to go, but still moving along with those same forces, resources, and support for your movement across the waters. It is not that those forces are less-important, but that they are funneled through a myriad of tools that you have learned to use so that those forces merely support what you choose to do. We realize this is a limited and potentially-misleading analogy, but if confined to the context we just described, it is valid. [QUESTION] Can the Essences that are your guides be the Essences of Personalities you know within a lifetime? [MICHAEL] It is not impossible for that to be the case, though it is not done very often. It is possible because any given Personality is only a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the energy that is Essence, and Essence is not limited to any time frame or geographical location. Therefore, an Essence can be incarnated alongside your incarnation, but fulfill a Position as Guide in a non-physical manner. For the most part, this "makes no sense" to most fragments, so it is rare. Keep in mind that when an Essence fulfills the Position of Guide, the experience for that Guide is quite similar to incarnating, which is one of the reasons a Guide can have a "Personality" and personal history that contributes to its method of support. This is why it "makes no sense" to play both a physical incarnation and act as a Guide in the same life, because that relationship can be fulfilled through one or the other, making both redundant and unnecessary. [QUESTION] Can guides be nonhuman--or formerly human? non-formerly human, I mean? [MICHAEL] Yes, that is possible for specialized contexts within the Positions, and this is quite common among different species that share worlds and star systems. For a species that is isolated, such as yours, the Positions of Guides are fairly restricted to those who know what it is like to live as your species. For instance, the Essence of a Sentient Dolphin can be a Guide for those Humans working with Dolphins, otherwise, a Dolphin as your Guide for living life as a Human is fairly useless. This is not to say that relationships between Sentience of different Species does not occur in non-physical realms, but that the networking is limited to the extent that the networking is reflected in the Physical Plane. [QUESTION] Would you give me an example where I chose to use one of these 3 guides/positions to help me with a problem, issue, situation so that I may be able to recognize their influence in the future? [MICHAEL] Your Primary Guide is who helped you to find us. Exploring the process that led to those moments may be insightful. Your Relationship Guide/s helped you to extend beyond physical limitations to build current relationships related to finding our teaching. Exploring that process can lend insight into that area. [QUESTION] How often do the guides you have 'shift' in and out of their positions - for example, my ET was one of my emotional guides for a while but has reincarnated again and isn't available. I feel that there are those who come and go as well as those who 'stay.' [MICHAEL] The more fluid Positions or Relationships and Events shift and change to the degree that one's life shifts and changes. If one notices an arcing pattern in the realm of relationships, yet is played out from relationship to relationship, there may be one Guide helping with the overall pattern, while others support the individual relationships along the way. Relationship and Event Positions can go through many changes in Guides, but it does not mean that one Guide cannot remain for the entire lifetime in that Position. It simply means that those Positions are prone to change and flexibility, whereas the Primary Position is not. [QUESTION] But guides do 'shift' out sometimes? And another shifts in - as you said, with changing circumstances? eg - a health issue becomes predominant so a 'health' focus guide comes 'online'? [MICHAEL] That is correct. [QUESTION] could you give me an example of how these guide assist me creatively and how do I know it is not imagination when contact is made? [MICHAEL] First we will point out that one's Imagination is the highest frequency tool available to the human body, and it IS the medium through which conscious contact, influence, and exchange with non-physical Guides will be made. Imagination does not equate Delusion. Imagination is a tool that can be used for Delusion or for Direction, and includes the spectrum between. To truly comprehend and sense the validity of exchange between the physical and non-physical one must first embrace Imagination as the very language that will be used for that. As in the learning of any language, practice is important, and differentiation of "voices" becomes easier with that practice. Delusional voices will always exist, and will actually never go away, but one can begin to recognize the hopeful, desperate, projected, forced, urgent "voices" of Delusion vs the soft, intuitive, gentle insights, creative inspirations that come from Direction. We use the word "Direction" for the more positive aspects of Imagination because the positive aspects of Imagination move one forward, while Delusion moves in circles, or remains "stuck." [QUESTION] delusion=ego? [MICHAEL] Ego does not equate Delusion. Ego is simply the self-conscious aspect of the Personality, which can be self-conscious in terms of awareness, or in terms of indulgence or self-defense. [QUESTION] have my guides helped me creatively? [MICHAEL] If you have felt inspired and created something fulfilling, it would be safe to say that this was a result of a healthy exchange between you and your Guides, or you and Essence, or all of the above, so to speak. [QUESTION] This is in relation to what you said about animal guides- if one (like myself, who feels Hawk is my totem) does not directly work with an animal, can they still have an animal guide? [MICHAEL] For the most part, Totems are a form of "template" that is used as a means to personify a relationship with a Guide who is, by incarnational definition, "Human." If it helps one to relate to the Primary Guide by using the symbolism of a Hawk, Bear, Cougar, Dragonfly, Ant, Water, Wind, Butterfly, Lion, Rabbit, Tree, Faearies, etc., then that does not diminish the relationship, it is simply a part of the Differentiation process. All Totems are symbolic. This is not to say that a relationship with those Kingdoms cannot be had, physically or non-physically, but when they are valid, they are simply affectionate relationships, not ones that provide profound life directions. Beyond the affectionate relationship, the rest is symbolic and up for the Sentient Being to interpret. For instance, if one were to have a Hawk as a “pet,” that relationship would be confined to the capacity for the Hawk to live in comfortably with a Human, and the insights gained would require the same symbolism, imagination, and interpretation that is used for the Totem relationship. Hawk Central, or Rabbit Central, or Dragonfly Central, for instance, do not provide individualized support and guidance for Humans, even if their part in the dynamic of Earth Life can be used as symbolic forms for the individual Human to grasp understanding and support. For example: If one were to feel that Hawk is one's Life Totem, then this might be symbolic of how the Primary Guide (of Human Sentience) works in overall Life. This might mean that one's ATTITUDE is aligned with the accepted symbolism of Hawk, and this means that one's philosophy of life, in general, is expressed as symbolic of a Hawk. It would also mean that when one seeks support and exchange with the Primary Guide, it may show up in the symbolic or literal form of Hawk, in the various extensions associated with Hawk, etc. [QUESTION] to clarify from earlier, you could have a Dolphin as a guide since they are ensouled, but non-ensouled "guides" are templates? [MICHAEL] That would be correct. The non-Sentient hive souls can become symbolic for personal uses, and/or develop affectionate relationships, but cannot technically play a role of Guide. We will conclude here, though we will repeat: there is much more to say on this topic should it be of interest to our students.
  2. OCTOBER 30 Energy- Following a few bright+hopeful weeks, I suddenly became very sharp, sour and pissed off in waking life. So I went to bed early out of spite and escapism. DREAM- Dream Space was very busy but completely lacked cohesion and self-awareness. My deceased cat showed up but I never remarked that she should be dead. I remember waking up in the midst of the night (which is very unusual)- recalling I dreamed a lot, and I know TLE was in one of those dreams- but there was no clarity. NOVEMBER 5 Energy- No dreams, but lots of self-reflection. I started noticing any greed for intimacy/affection around this time. NOVEMBER 7 Energy- No dreams, but I felt very heavy, desperate and scared for no reason. Resting and consciously showering helped. I thought the day would be very busy as the previous November 6th was- but it wasn't hectic at all. Thought there could've been a community convergence for my family- with a theme of SORTING and RELEASING. NOVEMBER 9 Energy- Feeling an inner calm, with a hectic amount of dreaming and poor rest. DREAM 1- It was early morning, my family & I went to a race that took place in what seemed like an emptied "Lazy River". I lost badly and remember thinking it was weird I didn't win, because I was the protagonist. But I shrugged it off cause I didn't care much about winning anyways. DREAM 2- Was going to say something funny to my cousin, but kept getting interrupted by people coming into the room. When I finally had a chance to say something, I apologized- but she said "Whatever, if you're going to tell me something, you better make it quick or else it's not worth listening to." I was going to tell her about some video I saw where a Cooking Host was making chocolate, but didn't even have any chocolate- so she instead stated if you boil cauliflower in orange juice it will give a rich chocolate flavor. Wtf? XD Got some good laughs from family and TLE when I shared that. NOVEMBER 19 Energy- Curious and unhurried. DREAM- Dreamed of some objects in a superstore that I was grabbing for a russian couple who were having tourist problems. The objects were: All-dressed Chips, Perogies, Frozen Fruit etc. I never got to give them to the couple in time, but I saw they did sort out their tourism issues. NOVEMBER 20 Energy- Lighter than past days, and more attentive to humor. I remember at some point in a dream saying "We should ask @Bobby about this." NOVEMBER 22 Energy- Pondering a lot. Nearly everyone in my physical world showed up in this day's dream space. DREAM 1- I was at a large gathering, maybe camping by a beautiful lake, with my whole family. DREAM 2- I was at a large gathering of everyone I met at school- freaking out in the computer lab because dream me forgot who he was & how he got to where he was. I actually thought "Well this is a convergence nexus, maybe that's why." I made a big commotion trying to get answers out of others and wanted them to acknowledge my confusion. But instead of helping me out, the dream quickly devolved into some kind of assimilation plot so I wouldn't cause such a stir. Reminded me of a show I was watching called "The 100".
  3. July 15, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Parallels and Processes [Michael_Entity] We are here. We will begin in one moment. What we will do is discuss the Parallel Shift coming up and respond to any questions you may have about it. Then move into another area if time permits. We remind you that the window appears to begin on a larger scale starting the 17th, with the actual shift window for most being on the 19th, and continuing through the 29th. The reason for the extended time window is due to the nature of the Community Shift. Some within your circle may begin or end their own version of the shift at a different point than yourself. A solidifying factor for this shift can be seen astrologically. We do not practice astrology, but a quick glance at some events at the end of the month and the beginning of the next should provide some insights from another angle. The process of passing through the parallel shift is in three stages; a Triad: Negative/Positive/Neutral. Though some may reverse the Negative and Positive phase, the process always moves to Assimilation/Neutral as a conclusive factor. It is rare to begin in the Positive. What we will describe can be experienced on all three levels of shifts, Individual, Community, and Global Levels, so this can be applied at other times than this shift currently unfolding. The window indicated by us through our channels is always the general window of the “positive” phase. It is most easily identifiable and marked, while the first and last thirds of the Triad are less defined by time. In the Negative phase (Phase One), Personality begins going through what some may consider a drop in energy, a sleep-like phase, sometimes depression or simple disorientation. This is what may easily be considered sedation of the Personality. This is caused by a more “horizontal” flow of energy and a time in which Personality must sustain itself on a basic instinctual level. In most cases there is a sense of disconnection from Essence, a sense of “just getting through the day”, and/or the dream state takes on a vivid life while the waking state seems gray or less-than. This is all due to the evaluation process occurring by Essence. Essence is “looking in” on all parallels, evaluating where energy has been utilized by all aspects of itself to date, in all of its manifestations, measuring this against several factors. During this first phase many “realities” are being generated in a potential state. Personality is in a state of sedation, so to speak, since this takes much energy that is usually available on a daily basis for creativity by the Personality, and redirecting it in a very specific manner. The very end of the Negative period is marked by a swift uplift in energy, a shift of sorts internally, marking the end of the exploration by Essence and an inclusion of Personality in the process. This is usually where Personality now suddenly feels inspired, senses potential on a vague but motivating level. This is where Personality will then make final decisions in what directions to go through the shift, selecting from the potentials generated by Essence. Shortly after this, the Positive phase begins (Phase Two). The window for the actual shift in parallels occurs during this phase. This phase is interpreted/experienced differently by different Roles and is further affected my Attitudes and Centering. In general, the more fluid Roles (Priests, Sages, and Artisans) can feel giddy and inspired, confused, but uplifted and energetic. The more solid Roles (Scholars, Kings, Warriors, and Servers) can feel slightly agitated, introverted, “serious” and feel a need to focus. The more solid Roles will usually find “projects” that focus the energy for this period of time or find sexual arousal distracting. This is their way of “staying in the body” during the shift. The shift tends to find an individual feeling scattered and this is not particularly comfortable for a solid role. This is all highly general, but accurate for the most part. Once the shift is finalized (and an astrological event usually parallels this), depending on the individual or community or planet (relative to the type of shift) the fragments settle into their new vein of experiences. This third phase can take as long as individually required, though it is usually within 60 days from the shift. During this phase you begin to experience that which is “next on your agenda” as determined by Personality and Essence. We will stop here and ask for your responses, validations, etc. Any questions. [Jn] Are these shifts “cosmic” events or determined by Essence or groups of Essence (community)? [Michael_Entity] They are determined by Essences, individually, and/or collectively. For instance, the Cetaceans have their own parallel shifts. The highest level, the global level, is more likely to include all of sentience on that planet. [Jn] So do the shifts happen mostly during Internal Monad periods? Like the 4th IM? [Michael_Entity] No, shifts happen all the time. More individual shifts may occur during personal revelations, but that is individually determined. Each year, there are an average of 4 Individual Shifts, 2 Community Shifts, and one Global Shift. They are all built upon by “decisions” that lead to the major “choices”. [aa] Can personality’s desires and wishes influence essence choices regarding a shift? [Michael_Entity] Personality is entirely influential. In fact, parallel realities would not be a necessity if not for the dynamics of a Personality. This is the Tao’s way, and Essence's way, to accommodate the wishes, creativity, and even rejections of Essence from the Personality. Just previous to a shift, however, a momentum has already begun long before by your Personality’s day-to-day reactions to experiences, your decisions, your thoughts, feelings,… all this is fed to Essence as factors for consideration. Once the Negative phase has begun (Phase One), most of what is considered for your “future” parallels is already “collected”. As you begin as an older soul to recognize these shifts, processing them more consciously, there may be a tendency of the Personality to want to “be a part” of the shift by trying to “influence” it through focusing at that time, etc. It is actually more empowering and influential a perception to consider your daily reactions, responses and decisions are what “matter” in terms of creating your future, not the window for the shift. We know of some Personalities being anxiety riddled at the nexus points, “hoping” they pick the “right” parallel. This is completely invalid. Once the shifts begin, Personality is in a space where surrender is the most empowering strength. There are some things the Personality was not designed to do. Trusting Essence is the primary challenge for the Personality during a parallel shift. [Jn] For Global shifts, all sentience on our planet experienced the shifts, but what about alien visitors here? Do they participate? I am curious to know if our shifts (parallel universes) have effects on other planets (or vice versa). [Michael_Entity] There are actually 7 levels of shifts that occur or are possible in the Universe. We remain dealing with only these basic 3 shifts until more off-planet concerns are a factor. We will discuss the fourth level at the end of this year. In answer to your question: If there would be an alien visitor, it would participate in the shift relative to this planet as well, yes. Your local shifts for your planet affect other planets only to the extent that off-planet exploration is utilized. For now, other civilizations off-planet would have more influences on your planet, than the reverse. Next question… [La] So far, most of what you’ve told us would apply to the Individual Shift, but I’m unclear as to the dynamics of a Community Shift? [Michael_Entity] The primary difference is that MORE of you are shifting together in one context. It still occurs individually, without exception, but there is a factor of agreement in a larger circle. This means that a group of fragments have agreed on a future that would like to be experienced in terms of interaction with each other after evaluating Agreements, Karma, contacts, Sequences, Vectors, etc. When done on the Individual Level, after a shift you may view many things differently, feel different motivations, all of which seem detached from the perceptions of those around you. You will notice that in a Community Shift or Global Shift, more media is involved, more gatherings, more impact FROM others or ON others around you. Each Community shift usually has a theme. This shift is specifically about manifesting True Soul age on a Psychological Level. The mundane effects of this are in the loss of people or the gain of people in a significant way in your personal support circle. This is why we spoke earlier of the window being a longer time frame; to accommodate the actual Individual shifts involved. If there are no more questions about the shift, we will take a question from each of you. Depending on its nature, we will respond to it tonight. [aa] I had a dream where images were flashing in too fast to recognize. Was this some sort of “processing”? About twenty images in a sequence of flashing. [Michael_Entity] We would think so. This is not unusual. The Dream State becomes a meeting ground for Essence and Personality for some considerations of potential futures. This is usually the “uploading” of certain experiences that have not been “updated” for Essence evaluation. You may experience them as if they are being fed to “you”, but this is natural since they are moving to a conscious level from your Centers where they were stored previously. It may be assumed that Essence is involved in all activities and experiences and “knows all” while you are incarnated, but this is just not the case. Essence, of course, is involved on all levels, but in many cases “allows” the Personality its own terms for much of its life. The Personality will report or check in or make contact when wanted or needed. This contact can easily be sustained so that Essence is purely manifest, but we rarely see a Personality interested in this except in extreme trauma. [Dd] What does the maxim: You create your reality NOT entail? [Michael_Entity] Though this is a rather “large” question, we can assure you that most mistake this as the Personality’s potential, when it is not. The Personality is highly limited in its “creation” of reality. Personality, though, is the highest consideration by Essence in terms of what DECISIONS Personality has made for a length of time. Essence takes these factors into consideration as the Essence creates reality. The Personality is a sensory unit for the Physical Plane, and though it has the definite potential and goal for pure manifestation of Essence, allowing Personality a co-creative stance, it will always be Essence that creates the actual reality. This is why we encourage Essence Contact. The more consciously involved “you” are (as Personality) with Essence, the more influence on Physical Plane manifestations and abundance. A missing link in many endeavors for “creating your reality” is in the lack of actually “asking” for what you want directly to Essence. It is most often “left to the Universe” or “released” to a vague source or “God” for its manifestation. The most irresponsible and indifferent mantra we have seen used by Personality in reality is, “It will happen if it is supposed to happen”, or similar. We say “irresponsible” in its true sense, not in the judgmental manner this word usually entails. Since Essence (and certainly the Tao) does not “think” in terms of “supposed to” this lends little direction to an event and what results is usually another opportunity for Chief Feature manifestation. [Dd] So has the Seth material been largely misinterpreted much like the words of Christ were? [Michael_Entity] There is no such thing as misinterpretation. Nothing can be misrepresented or misinterpreted; only individually perceived. It is an individual determination and based on relativity. What is seen as “misinterpretation”, at least in this context, is more a frustrating need for validation of that individual perception. This has been the contributing factor behind most religious conflict, in fact, most conflict. [Dd] We all yearn for the truth. [Michael_Entity] It has never been the “words” themselves that contribute to the situation, but rather the need for validation externally of the words as seen individually. We are being truthful when we say that all is true on some level. Reminding yourself of the three levels of Truth (Individual, World, and Universal) can alleviate many distractions with conflict. All of the material from Seth is valid and applicable. If it is to be used for personal exploration of power and conflict, then it is still serving the students. We would suggest looking beyond the surface to what the personal challenge is. We do not see it involving philosophy, but simple self-karma. We will take another question, then conclude. [By] First, as I understand it, essence can split off and create alternate or parallel realities so it can experience different “what if” scenarios – right? [Michael_Entity] This is a valid angle, yes. [By] Then can through some form, say meditation, can I contact essence with intense desire that it try something else and then when it is finished, it will merge the split off fragment back and at some level I will benefit from the learning of the fragment? [Michael_Entity] You already do this; it is inherent in the process of a life. It does not require meditation. Frustrations, reactions, responses, decisions, emotions, thoughts, ideas, etc. all contribute to the diverging/branching of parallels. The merging is based on a quantity of similarities in certain parallels and the lack of need for individual realities. “Benefit” is gained on many levels. A drive to have children might spawn a reality where that is the choice, lessening the drive in “this” reality so as to focus on other agenda. Benefit can also be more consciously gained through simple visualization and if you prefer, meditation. Visualize what “you” are like in a reality that has done or is doing or having, etc. what it is you are seeking. We have spoken on this many times, stating that your imagination is all that is needed for this exercise. Though we realize it is highly mistrusted, the imagination is the highest frequency owned by a body and extremely empowering. In your visualization, choose a simple habit, style change, or activity that “you” do “there” that you do not do “here”. In the replication of this in your reality, you will create a link, or bleedthrough, helping to direct a manifestation. [By] So that the direction to try a different existence comes from me and not from essence as such? I have trouble distinguishing between “me” and “essence”… [Michael_Entity] We have said before, but will here say again, that the dynamics of Parallels is designed to accommodate both the Essence’s AND Personality’s development of a life. The “direction to try a different existence” comes from both Essence and Personality, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in complete discord with each other. Essence will never interfere with the ideas of a Personality however removed they are from the “original plan”. There is plenty of “room” for “all of you” Another reason for parallels is that Essence CANNOT experience all of the Physical Plane while the Personality IS of the Physical Plane, therefore, Personality has an “edge” on what is important, needed, or wanted. Personality gives the Essence a source of “feedback” from the Physical Plane so as to make more and more complex, elaborate and meaningful choices as Soul Age progresses. [By] I guess “I” am a creation of essence so if “I” wish essence to try a different scenario, then it is the same as essence doing it. Or am I getting confused here? [Michael_Entity] There is really no need to distinguish between “you” as personality and essence since as older souls you are seeking alignment more and more. [By] ok, I think the subject of who can initiate the creation of parallel realities is a little clearer for me now, thank you. [Michael_Entity] If there is confusion in your life, it is best to assume yourself as Personality. This will allow a clearer path of communication to Essence when important. A sense of knowing and trust for the next moment or experience being felt may be considered being in Essence. Either way, there is the same amount of impact available on reality. It is merely within the acceptance or resistance of this that a challenge can occur. We will conclude here.
  4. For this Nexus, I've had two party/gathering themed dreams, one set in a forest with evergreens and snow, with torches around, and one which was an actual party. Didn't see anyone I recognized for sure, though. Mostly could sense that people were around, more than interacting directly.
  5. Note: This session continues a topic first opened in Michael Speaks: Dreams and Symbols (Part 1 of 3). Part 1 was presented in March 1999, which Michael refers to in the session below. September 2, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Dreams and Symbols 2 of 3 Note from Otterly aka Troy Tolley: The chats no longer include the “Energy Weather Report”. They are channeled the night before and posted to the TrueView List. This allows more time for Q & A on the Energy Report and for the Topic. [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. One moment. We will open by taking questions from you in regard to our posted Energy Report. If there are any questions or comments, we will respond now. [La] You mentioned clear goals for the East and West Coasts, but what of the rest of the country… Do we not have such definitive geographic goals, or should we identify with one Coast or the other? [Michael_Entity] When we speak of the “east” or “west” it is the channel who adds in “Coast”. We mean to differentiate more or less as a division in three parts: The River known as the Mississippi and East would be “East”. Santa Fe as a marker, more or less running an imaginary line North and South, on over West would be “West”. All between, marked mainly by the width of the State known as Texas, is a mixing of energy. From these basic references you might be able to define your geographical location and which influences are strongest for you. DREAMS & SYMBOLS: Part 2 [Michael_Entity] We define the Topic in two terms because they are not limited to any partitions you may believe experienced. What is termed “dreams” may easily be experienced in certain forms while meditating or simply noting your environment (including body) while in waking state. “Symbols” are important on all planes up through and including the Causal. As you approach your waking state in as meaningful a manner of interpretation as you would a “dream”, much is gained. We began this topic in March 1999, this year, so we will not cover the basics again at this point, but we will continue. Tonight we will cover the Instinctive Levels/Symbolic. Whether in Waking State or in what is termed actual “dreaming” (the biological relinquishing of presence), Symbols play an important and integral part of your realities. At this point we will describe the three levels of Symbols. We correct the channeling here by referring to “levels” instead as “facets”. The three facets of Symbolism are familiar as the axis the Overleaf system is based on. There are Expressive, Inspirational, and Action, with Assimilation not acting as a facet, but rather the comprehension of the original Symbol. The three facets are consistent in “dreams” or waking state. Since “dreaming” can occur in either Waking State or Sleep State, we will use Sleep or Waking to differentiate from here. The EXPRESSIVE facet, related to the Intellectual Center, is anything in your environment that is truly an extension of you. This would include the state of your immediate environment, the clothes you choose, your style of hair, and your mannerisms. This facet is usually regarded as the “most important” personally. By this we mean that if it is interfered with in any way, there is usually a sense of imposition, fear, reaction, defense, etc. This is the facet reflecting what you see as “you”. The INSPIRATIONAL facet, related to the Emotional Center, is what might be termed the “messages” received around you; omens, the traditional usage of symbols, anything standing out as a distraction in your usual or expected environment or self, any discrepancies. This includes illnesses, extraordinary experiences, conversations of some intensity or surprise, lying, revelations, etc. The ACTION facet, related to the Moving Center, is the literal action taken in response to any stimulation, including your reactions, your excitement, anything connecting one point to another. This is also the facet that is usually considered your “feelings” since what are usually accepted as “feelings” are Moving Centered. The symbolism from this facet can include the motivation behind the actions. As in many of our online chats with you, we realize we are limited in your time. We will pause now for questions in regard to these facets before moving on. [bn] I had a dream where I was leaving my military life behind for good even though I had been out of the military for over a year. I have the feeling that I was transitioning a level of the 4th internal monad instead. Can Michael verify if I moved ahead a level in the completion of the 4th IM? [Michael_Entity] We will make some time following the basics for personal dream analysis. We will look into this as we progress though. Any questions about the facets. We will continue then. [M6] What is meant by “the biological relinquishing of presence”? [Michael_Entity] In response to M6: In order to “dream”, in either sleep or waking state, we would consider this the biological relinquishing of presence, in that no need for or want for focus externally is experienced. “You” are no longer present. Your body simply acts as a “bookmarker” for your reality as you at some point “return”. We speak to this more metaphorically than literally. We will continue. While in waking state, at any moment, you can choose to observe your environment (this includes your body) as a means for utilizing symbols. Treating waking state as you would a dream, determining the facet the symbol reflects, and “listening” to the messages, can be quite liberating. At this very moment your environment is no different than in sleep state, except in its apparent solidity. Looking around you, it is clear what is “you” (the EXPRESSIVE facet), what is “not you” (the INSPIRATIONAL facet) and what you are going to do in response (the ACTION facet). It is the same in sleeping state. There will always be areas that are “you”, “not you” and the actions as a metaphor. The comprehension (as a reminder) in either case, whether sleeping or waking, is the ASSIMILATIVE facet. In the case of Barry: The “Military Life” is the EXPRESSIVE facet, the “leaving” is ACTION, while the discrepancy in the time of leaving was the INSPIRATIONAL. The message here can be seen in the apparent “delay” of progress internally that needed to be addressed; “life was moving on” without some internal progress being registered. This can lead to overwhelm when internal and external do not “match”, and the dream state helped to align these levels of self. The symbolic leaving of the Military internally is an indication that you have released final influences INTERNALLY carried from the experience, even if before you had ceased to EXTERNALLY be affected. While we say, “released” we mean more accurately that you integrated what works and released what does not. [bn] During the dream I had intense feeling of release or finally being free…. [Michael_Entity] That would be expected, in this case. To BN: do you see the symbolism and the facets clearly? [bn] Yes. So it didn't have to do with moving on in the 4th IM but dropping the military personality finally… I didn't realize I was holding onto it that much…. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that. We were merely responding to the level of symbolism as it applied. The more personal application can be extracted from there. You determine your progress through the Internal Monads. We do not. We will comment on that progress at a later date, if asked, but your own assessment seems to be accurate. Questions? To help bring the practical applications of this information to bear, we will take any personal questions as well, in regard to dreams. Be brief in your descriptions. [LE] Could you just use the symbols to clue into your internal progress so as to help bring balance between both the waking and dream worlds? [Michael_Entity] In response to LE: While there are many times when sleeping dreams and symbols are left resting in subconsciousness, the waking state can always lend you clues. This method of utilizing your visual or experiential environment as a means for comprehension is empowering and valid. This can then bring what your refer to as “balance”. In further response to LE, we realize you have placed the word “just” in your question. Utilizing only one or the other, the sleeping or waking state as a means for comprehension will always be difficult. It is much more efficient to utilize both worlds, though yes, seeking the symbols in one world as the other seems less accessible can bring balance as well. [Fg] I'm wondering about people from my past, usually high school showing up in my dreams. Many I didn't know personally. [Michael_Entity] Yes FG. You have not asked a question. [Fg] They usually play some role in helping me do something I'm trying to accomplish within the dream (or work against me). I'm wondering why this type of symbol is used, especially in the case when I didn't know them [Michael_Entity] We will walk through this to help in application: The characters involved would be from the EXPRESSIVE facet in that they represent a time in your life and people who comprised that time in your life. That you did not “know” many whom are “helping” in the dream is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, the message. The shared focus, what you are “trying to accomplish”, would be the ACTION facet. We do see this as stemming from what we would refer to as the ASTRAL LEVEL of dreaming (which we have covered in the past, but tonight will not). The characters involved here in your dream are mere aspects of self, represented in part by “strangers” and some recognized individuals. FG, you have long suppressed aspects of yourself stemming from your teens and this dreaming experience helps to bring some aspects of self, in the past disregarded, into conjunction with common interests, internally. The “strangers” are aspects of present self, partially, and aspects of other Personalities from other lives, symbolically represented in the recognized High School environment. They are recognized, yet distant. You have never required intimacy as a factor for receiving collaboration. Therefore these aspects can work together and not necessarily need intimacy fully realized. Next. Aa. [Aa] I wanted to I wanted to ask what a ghost in a dream might symbolize? They've been showing up a lot in mine. Also, is the notion of the different levels of a house correlating with the conscious, subconscious etc. correct?? [Michael_Entity] In response to the first part: A “ghost” in most respects symbolizes the template created and left unfulfilled by a fragment. These “ghosts” can be of templates created by present self or other Personalities. In your case, Aa, you attract those which retained a template or imprint in their life, but feel it is unfulfilled. Those seeking resolution visit you regularly. In response to the latter part of the question: We ask first if you mean this as in having multiple floors in a dwelling? [Aa] yes [Michael_Entity] Yes, this would be symbolic. They would only correlate to “subconscious” or “conscious” if you chose to imbue them with that symbology. Most “levels” in a dwelling are indicative symbolically of the largest or most used space on that landing. The bedroom level could be said to be the “subconscious” then, but that must be individually determined. The levels and their meaning will need to be explored personally, if there is differentiation of levels at all. Next. La. [la] What's the meaning of recurring dreams in which I am trying to escape a huge, towering tidal wave, sometimes a female friend or child is with me? [Michael_Entity] To walk through for La: The characters with you are EXPRESSIVE facets, the tidal wave is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, and the escaping is the ACTION facet. This dream is simply indicative of your want for protection of aspects of self that you feel have been brought against their will into highly charged, emotional “tidal waves” in your life. You are seeing these aspects of you (the young girl) as needing direction while the one aspect is in a position to act as guide (your present self), fully knowing the enormity of emotion that is swelling and engulfing you. This is a dream reflecting an on-going procession of healing between your present self, and a couple of past selves. You have always reached across time to encourage or seek support for self from self. This leads us to a final important note needed for the Symbolic level. When in sleeping state, it is not always convenient to follow through with the symbols as they have been presented, once in waking state. It is the task then to take what you remember and follow it through in your imagination. In La’s case, it would be to turn and allow the tidal wave to wash over, standing strong, creating strength and trust against what was originally seen as only motivating “escape”. In most dreams remembered upon awakening, if there is a sense of symbolism and need for follow through, it is on the ACTION facet that you will direct the imagination. The sleeping dream state on the Symbolic Level gives you an indication as to where you stand presently in your life in most cases, while the utilization of that information upon awakening can actually change the impact of the experiences originally symbolized in the dream. This is all simply another tool, though one usually only taken up by late mature and older souls. Last question: Ka [Ka] I have a recurring image in my dreams, of a cat that talks and has some kind of superior wisdom or knowledge that I and the other around me do not have. What does this mean? [Michael_Entity] This also stems from the Astral, by the way. This is a “familiar” of yours and a vehicle of expression, personified in a cat, used by your Essence as a conduit for messages from your own entity. Though your Essence has the final effect on your receipt of information, the source stems from accessing your discarnate entity members. This symbol is drawn from your lives working with large felines as symbolically representing higher wisdom. There are quite a few of you as our students who place great emphasis on this species. This is partially due to their easy access to off-planet incarnated species as well; they are excellent conduits of various energies. We will continue the next chat exploring the Astral Levels. We suggest taking in your environment, from sleep and waking, through the understanding of those facets discussed here. We will summarize again: The EXPRESSION facet is what you see as “you”, the INSPIRATIONAL as what is “not you” (taken as messages) and the ACTION facet is how you respond to any stimuli. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
  6. ASK MICHAEL - OPEN FLOOR March 2, 2014 Channel - Troy Tolley [DianeHB] From Kurtis: Hi Michael, I'd like to ask for elaboration on the Realist Attitude, Reserve Mode and Perseverance Mode within the time allowed. Such as how the Negative and Positive Poles function, as there isn't much on any of those traits. If there isn't enough time for 3, that's fine too, then we can just elaborate on the Realist Attitude and Reserve Mode. MEntity: The Realist Attitude is the Exalted, Action Attitude. Attitudes describe a base philosophy through which life is interpreted. In this case, the Realist interprets life through the larger patterns of experiences that have proven to be trustworthy. These experiences tend to be tangible experiences. Anything outside of that collection of tangible patterns and experiences is not considered to be "realistic." This is not to say that the Realist is not open to new, tangible experiences that would build upon previous tangible experiences, but that if it is not already within that range, it is simply not trustworthy. In other words, if it is worth questioning, then it is not "realistic" to count on it. This can tend to leave the Realist with a very refined, but broad, net of what is considered trustworthy and "real." When the Realist is in the Positive Pole, OBJECTIVITY, it means that there is no investment in what is that range of tangible experiences. That Realist is open to all experiences, and if it moves into that range of trust, then so be it, but if not, then so be it. The Positive Realist simply sees WHAT IS. The Realist in the Negative Pole, SUBJECTIVE, starts to become invested in what is wished to be real, what is expected to be dependable, and what is longed for. Their interpretation of experience then shifts outside of its range of trust, and moves more into that state of investment. It is no longer about WHAT IS, but about WHAT IS NOT. And the effort to turn WHAT IS NOT, into WHAT IS. RESERVE MODE is the Ordinal, Inspiration Mode. Modes are how one RELATES, and the HOW of fulfilling the Goal. If Passion Mode is the approach to relationships and to fulfilling the Goal through the freeing of emotions, then Reserve Mode is the approach to relationships and to fulfilling the Goal through the refinement of emotions. Those in Reserve Mode are acutely aware of their feelings and the energy that flows behind those, but are quite selective about what is shared or released or put into use. If you think of emotional energy as a kind of fuel, then those in Reserve prefer to use their "fuel" only when it is necessary, efficient, or relevant. So those in the Positive Pole, RESTRAINT, will find strength in the building up of this energy for those uses where it is more necessary, efficient, or relevant. It is a kind of allocation process, and not one that is intent on ignoring or rejecting emotions. However, if Reserve falls into the Negative Pole, then this allocation process falls away from the strength of Restraint, and into INHIBITION. Inhibition is the same process, but with only the intention for protecting the emotions, or protecting one's "fuel." Considering the queue of questions, we will move on from here to the next question. [Larissa] Anxiety seems to be a growing struggle for many these days. I understand that anxiety relates to fears/focus on the future while depression is a focus on the past. For a person who has difficulty identifying that they are in fact competent and understanding ‘why’ they feel overwhelmed/anxious/fearful, what tools can we use for ourselves or to assist a person in uncovering contributors to anxiety and help to shift our/their anxiety from a negative and debilitating concern to one that can be more easily understood and navigated, and eventually leads to our/their “recovery” (for lack of a better word), neutrality, or and/or healing? Any additional insight you can share on the topic is welcome and appreciated. MEntity: First, we will say that Depression can also be about the future, but is a more resigned position from that of anxiety. Anxiety would like to regain control, while Depression may have resigned that there is no control. In both cases, an underlying issue is the same: one cannot find themselves in any position of beneficial influence in their internal stories, images, possibilities, etc. The conditions you describe could be more of a syndrome than a mood, so it is also important for us to note here that a response from us in broader terms may not be able to address the mix of issues that contribute to one's anxiety or depression. In general, the healing measures that can help would begin with a return to some semblence of control. Since both Anxiety and Depression are about helplessness, it can be beneficial to direct the attention toward some area in which that person can rekindle his or her sense of control. Often that redirection of attention can be in the most surprising of ways that then cascades a return to confidence across the spectrum. For example, arranging a bouquet of flowers in a vase. This may seem useless, but that focus on such beauty and how one can enhance it with some nurturing moves, can be quite healing. Or an effort to smile. This can seem useless, as well, but making the concerted effort to smile, and then holding that for 30 seconds, can help ignite the sense of levity and energy that would be useful for dealing with the anxiety or depression. So, as a general response, we can only suggest here that ANY return of participation in ANY action that brings a sense of contribution and control is useful here. We would suggest not dismissing even the silliest or most "useless" of efforts. These add up. Add 5 of these little events to the day of one who is depressed or anxious, and it can turn around that day. Other suggestions: petting of animals; playing with children; repairing something minor; singing the "abc song;" counting; making time to sit under a tree; etc [Tyrone] Ok: About the Mormon/Latter-Day Saint church: Would Michael say that the current portrayal of Joseph Smith's life is generally historically correct? As in mainly, what were the events surrounding the time when he reportedly was shown metal plates and translated the book of Mormon? (Was it something like higher plane beings, extraterrestrial contact, wishful dreaming, actual gold plates, Urim and Thummim, etc?) MEntity: There is very little that is accurate regarding the life of the fragment known as Joseph Smith, though much of that inaccuracy was perpetuated by the fragment, himself. This was an early Mature Priest, Artisan Cast, in Acceptance, Passion Mode, an Idealist, with double Arrogance. His zealousness compelled him to bring about his ideals at any cost, even if that meant lying. There was no channeling. The source was directly of the imagination of the fragment. With that being said, his intentions and ideals appear to have been "good," even if colored by the imprinting and paradigm at the time. The aim appears to have been toward some ideal of agape, but became mired in mythologies that ended up promoting this agape as an insularity, instead. [Philip] About the Zeta information. Is this to be taken seriously? Is this channeled material? MEntity: There are many variations on what might be phrased "zeta information." Are you asking of this, in general? And are you speaking of the off-planet species that this tends to refer to? [Philip] What I am seeing is about a Planet X and a pole shift on earth. Yes, off planet species MEntity: Your question is quite broad, so our response will be, as well: to take the information you are coming across seriously, or not, is up to you. We cannot make that choice for you. In terms of a group of off-planet species generally referred to as "zetas," this has gone wildly into the realm of symbolism, and not accuracy. Though there are species that are similar to the descriptions often offered, the use of "Zeta" to group them is about as accurate as describing Humans, chimpanzees, and apes as "American." The symbolism of these aliens have come to be the replacement for what were once considered demons. In other words, they are a modern construct of personified fears, in many instances (not all). The species referred to, in general, are not as sinister as are often depicted. In terms of "Planet X" and a "pole shift," there is some validity to the fact that there are "planets" in trajectories that could be worrisome for Earthlings. Though we are not certain as to when any of these may be of necessity for concern, we do not think it is any time soon. As for Pole Shifts, these occur all of the time. They are not unusual. The pole shifts often referred to as being on a scale of massive destruction or change has never happened. We know that it is possible, but highly unlikely. [Juni] How is it possible to tell the difference between (and validate) when one has had actual contact/conversation with others while sleeping versus it being "just a dream" and is there cording happening when it's the former? MEntity: If you dream about a person, you are most likely in some form of contact with that person. Even your sex dreams about a celebrity are "real," in that regard. The Astral Plane is not restricted to known or appropriate relationships, and this is why you might even have sexual dreams about a family member. In the Astral Plane, sexual exchanges are not exploitative or ugly. They are forms of nurturing, support, and resonance. This is often carried back into the waking state as disturbing or distracting, because of the rules of relationships in the Physical Plane, but one can simply let them be what they were, and not impose temporal concerns on them. The Physical Plane is not burdened by those Astral relationships/contact, beyond the memory of the person dreaming, and what he or she chooses to do with that. In most cases, it is quite specific to the need of the dreamer, and not the one dreamed about. We emphasized sexual exchanges here, but we speak of any exchanges. And, yes, Cording does get involved. In most cases, the Cord would have had to have been in place already. If you dream of communication with someone you know you know in the dream, but do not know in waking state, it is often the case that you simply do not have a current incarnation that can reference that fragment very easily to you. If you dream of an exchange with someone who is faceless, or is vague, it is often an exchange with some facet or extension of yourself. [ViP1] Hi Michael, I have a couple of questions about Essence attributes. First, do the frequency and focused/creative energy ratio of an Essence remain fixed across all of the Spark's grand cycles? Or are they chosen anew, from scratch, at the beginning of each grand cycle? Second, do the roles in Essence have frequencies of their own (separate from the frequency of the Essence itself?) I have read from another channeler's channeling of you, that the roles do have such frequencies, ranging from Warrior (lowest) to Priest (highest), and that the frequency of a Role implies how "solidly" a Personality of that Role would be in touch with and connected to the tangible world around them (the lower the frequency, the more connected). Is this valid? MEntity: In response to your first question: Yes, Frequency and Focused/Creative Energy is locked across all Grand Cycles within a universe. These are the very unique "signatures" that identify a fragment with or without a Role. Once that signature is claimed, that fragment is capable of being recognized and identified, even upon return to the most conclusive oneness that is Tao. The Roles, however, also carry their own frequency, but that is only in terms of inherent characteristics that are then overridden by any individual Essence. So there is validity to the fact of more solid Roles, and less solid Roles, and that solid or less solid effect is a generality in each lifetime. However, the more one Manifests Essence, the more one's own Frequency begins to override any solidity or liquidity. In earlier Grand Cycles, the Frequency of the Essences will tend to gravitate toward the range that is inherent in the Roles, but as one's number of Grand Cycles rise, the differences between the Frequency and the inherent range of the Role can be quite drastic. Those who are in False Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the default of the Role. Those who are in True Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the Frequency of Essence. Between lives, and in terms of Review, the default of the Role will tend to be the case in the earlier lifetimes, and then, eventually, the Essence's own Frequency is owned and used. The above is meant in the context of how one processes experiences. However one processes experiences, the Frequency will still be static. [brian] Hi Michael, could you describe what Narcissism is in relation to the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies and how to reduce or eliminate its causes and effects, both internally and towards others? MEntity: Narcissism, in relation to the different bodies, would simply be a matter of contexts for where narcissism is upheld. It would not be much different in any of those contexts, though. Narcissism is often an extreme of either Arrogance or Self-deprecation, and is developed as a means of protecting what has come to be accepted as the most fragile thing in one's life: THE SELF. Those in extreme Self-deprecation or Arrogance where valid narcissism has developed will tend to have a very difficult time hearing, or listening, to anything that contradicts their conclusions; will have a very difficult time focusing on anything other than the preservation or serving of the self; will actively or passively refuse to accept that any social rules or contracts are applicable to them; will often hear any insights or suggestions for help to be merely criticisms and insults to them; will tend to default to the distraction of blame of anything other than the self for what goes awry in the life; and will tend to consider any instances of helplessness, anger, or depression to be the cause of someone else. Or something else. So the key for addressing this, even though it is an extreme, is the same for addressing any issues of self-esteem. It can be a long road to recovery, but the individual would have to come to terms with the fact of fragility in others, as a way to recognize the strengths within the self. This is because the one thing that locks those in Self-deprecation or Arrogance away from confidence is the idea that they are somehow less than what another person wishes them to be, or more than what another person can handle. To address someone in Narcissism, we would have to discuss with that person, specifically, the more detailed suggestions that could help that are relative to the causes of that person's fears. In general, though, the narcissist can start by allowing his or her fragility, and honoring that fragility in others. [brian] Is it possible for someone in Narcissism to actually care about others, even if they have difficulty expressing it appropriately? Or are they truly "in it for themselves?" MEntity: The irony here is that this can then become a source of empathy and strength that no longer requires defenses. Brian, that tends to depend on Soul Age. The younger souls tend toward this condition as a form of near-erotic love and admiration for the self as a way to compensate for that which feels makes him or her so different from others. Older souls will tend to go in the other direction, despising themselves, and desperately seeking to be rescued from the trap of those differences that define them, thus creating many inappropriate scenarios, or constant crossing of boundaries. This is not to say that the narcissist does not care, but that the caring is often conditional on how well it distracts the narcissist from his own disgust. So the older narcissist would want to begin to treat himself or herself with the same eagerness to care and nurture and love as he or she would any other person. [wyatt] Why are there identical pyramid structures erected in various ancient civilizations when historical records haven't indicated the civilizations have had contact with each other previously? As in Mayan mexico and indonesia/bali/Cambodia [MikeClev] (China...) MEntity: Wyatt, the ideas for the architecture was from off-planet species, and those were shared among those civilizations, even as those civilizations were disparate. That is the general answer we can offer. There are nuances, and variations, of course. [wyatt] will the off planet species strike again? MEntity: We would not describe it as "strike," but yes. Wyatt, our idea of "soon" may not be accurate to the Physical Plane, but we have yet to see a probability over the next 50 to 100 years that does not include contact with off-planet species on an open and wide scale. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  7. I had a dream of comedian Bill Murray. It is probably the third or fourth time he has appeared in my dreams, but the fourth time, I have now caught on. In the dream I am living in my old hometown Christchurch New Zealand. Not where I live now. I am biking in my old highschool suburb and Bill Murray is walking along the footpath. He is wearing a white shirt, blazer, and some really fancy iridescent type shantung silk flared trousers, he is looking pretty smart. Every time in my dream he is walking away from me, but I always do a double take, check to see if it is Bill Murray, and as I am double taking him, and staring probably, to confirm it is him, he looks back at me and kind of smiles, I wonder if he gets this all the time? And the other part of me is going silently ITS BILL MURRAY! BILL!!!!!!! MY FAVOURITE ACTOR PERSON but not saying it. He keeps on kind of looking back at me, then when he realises I am too wierded out to say hi he carries on his way. I remember thinking in the dream, Why do I keep seeing him here? I know he doesn't live here in New Zealand, such a long way from Hollywood. Why does he live in Cashmere Christchurch? Has he always lived here? How does he go by so unnoticed? He has a long way to go for job interviews. He is a pretty snazzy dresser. It is about the fourth time I have noticed him and double taken him and looked back at him. What is he up to?
  8. 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

    Dreams and Symbols (Part 2 of 3)

    [This is a reproduction of the session Michael Speaks: Dreams and Symbols (Part 2 of 3).] DREAMS & SYMBOLS: Part 2 [Michael_Entity] We define the Topic in two terms because they are not limited to any partitions you may believe experienced. What is termed “dreams” may easily be experienced in certain forms while meditating or simply noting your environment (including body) while in waking state. “Symbols” are important on all planes up through and including the Causal. As you approach your waking state in as meaningful a manner of interpretation as you would a “dream”, much is gained. We began this topic in March 1999, this year, so we will not cover the basics again at this point, but we will continue. Tonight we will cover the Instinctive Levels/Symbolic. Whether in Waking State or in what is termed actual “dreaming” (the biological relinquishing of presence), Symbols play an important and integral part of your realities. At this point we will describe the three levels of Symbols. We correct the channeling here by referring to “levels” instead as “facets”. The three facets of Symbolism are familiar as the axis the Overleaf system is based on. There are Expressive, Inspirational, and Action, with Assimilation not acting as a facet, but rather the comprehension of the original Symbol. The three facets are consistent in “dreams” or waking state. Since “dreaming” can occur in either Waking State or Sleep State, we will use Sleep or Waking to differentiate from here. The EXPRESSIVE facet, related to the Intellectual Center, is anything in your environment that is truly an extension of you. This would include the state of your immediate environment, the clothes you choose, your style of hair, and your mannerisms. This facet is usually regarded as the “most important” personally. By this we mean that if it is interfered with in any way, there is usually a sense of imposition, fear, reaction, defense, etc. This is the facet reflecting what you see as “you”. The INSPIRATIONAL facet, related to the Emotional Center, is what might be termed the “messages” received around you; omens, the traditional usage of symbols, anything standing out as a distraction in your usual or expected environment or self, any discrepancies. This includes illnesses, extraordinary experiences, conversations of some intensity or surprise, lying, revelations, etc. The ACTION facet, related to the Moving Center, is the literal action taken in response to any stimulation, including your reactions, your excitement, anything connecting one point to another. This is also the facet that is usually considered your “feelings” since what are usually accepted as “feelings” are Moving Centered. The symbolism from this facet can include the motivation behind the actions. As in many of our online chats with you, we realize we are limited in your time. We will pause now for questions in regard to these facets before moving on. [bn] I had a dream where I was leaving my military life behind for good even though I had been out of the military for over a year. I have the feeling that I was transitioning a level of the 4th internal monad instead. Can Michael verify if I moved ahead a level in the completion of the 4th IM? [Michael_Entity] We will make some time following the basics for personal dream analysis. We will look into this as we progress though. Any questions about the facets. We will continue then. [M6] What is meant by “the biological relinquishing of presence”? [Michael_Entity] In response to M6: In order to “dream”, in either sleep or waking state, we would consider this the biological relinquishing of presence, in that no need for or want for focus externally is experienced. “You” are no longer present. Your body simply acts as a “bookmarker” for your reality as you at some point “return”. We speak to this more metaphorically than literally. We will continue. While in waking state, at any moment, you can choose to observe your environment (this includes your body) as a means for utilizing symbols. Treating waking state as you would a dream, determining the facet the symbol reflects, and “listening” to the messages, can be quite liberating. At this very moment your environment is no different than in sleep state, except in its apparent solidity. Looking around you, it is clear what is “you” (the EXPRESSIVE facet), what is “not you” (the INSPIRATIONAL facet) and what you are going to do in response (the ACTION facet). It is the same in sleeping state. There will always be areas that are “you”, “not you” and the actions as a metaphor. The comprehension (as a reminder) in either case, whether sleeping or waking, is the ASSIMILATIVE facet. In the case of Barry: The “Military Life” is the EXPRESSIVE facet, the “leaving” is ACTION, while the discrepancy in the time of leaving was the INSPIRATIONAL. The message here can be seen in the apparent “delay” of progress internally that needed to be addressed; “life was moving on” without some internal progress being registered. This can lead to overwhelm when internal and external do not “match”, and the dream state helped to align these levels of self. The symbolic leaving of the Military internally is an indication that you have released final influences INTERNALLY carried from the experience, even if before you had ceased to EXTERNALLY be affected. While we say, “released” we mean more accurately that you integrated what works and released what does not. [bn] During the dream I had intense feeling of release or finally being free…. [Michael_Entity] That would be expected, in this case. To BN: do you see the symbolism and the facets clearly? [bn] Yes. So it didn't have to do with moving on in the 4th IM but dropping the military personality finally… I didn't realize I was holding onto it that much…. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that. We were merely responding to the level of symbolism as it applied. The more personal application can be extracted from there. You determine your progress through the Internal Monads. We do not. We will comment on that progress at a later date, if asked, but your own assessment seems to be accurate. Questions? To help bring the practical applications of this information to bear, we will take any personal questions as well, in regard to dreams. Be brief in your descriptions. [LE] Could you just use the symbols to clue into your internal progress so as to help bring balance between both the waking and dream worlds? [Michael_Entity] In response to LE: While there are many times when sleeping dreams and symbols are left resting in subconsciousness, the waking state can always lend you clues. This method of utilizing your visual or experiential environment as a means for comprehension is empowering and valid. This can then bring what your refer to as “balance”. In further response to LE, we realize you have placed the word “just” in your question. Utilizing only one or the other, the sleeping or waking state as a means for comprehension will always be difficult. It is much more efficient to utilize both worlds, though yes, seeking the symbols in one world as the other seems less accessible can bring balance as well. [Fg] I'm wondering about people from my past, usually high school showing up in my dreams. Many I didn't know personally. [Michael_Entity] Yes FG. You have not asked a question. [Fg] They usually play some role in helping me do something I'm trying to accomplish within the dream (or work against me). I'm wondering why this type of symbol is used, especially in the case when I didn't know them [Michael_Entity] We will walk through this to help in application: The characters involved would be from the EXPRESSIVE facet in that they represent a time in your life and people who comprised that time in your life. That you did not “know” many whom are “helping” in the dream is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, the message. The shared focus, what you are “trying to accomplish”, would be the ACTION facet. We do see this as stemming from what we would refer to as the ASTRAL LEVEL of dreaming (which we have covered in the past, but tonight will not). The characters involved here in your dream are mere aspects of self, represented in part by “strangers” and some recognized individuals. FG, you have long suppressed aspects of yourself stemming from your teens and this dreaming experience helps to bring some aspects of self, in the past disregarded, into conjunction with common interests, internally. The “strangers” are aspects of present self, partially, and aspects of other Personalities from other lives, symbolically represented in the recognized High School environment. They are recognized, yet distant. You have never required intimacy as a factor for receiving collaboration. Therefore these aspects can work together and not necessarily need intimacy fully realized. [Aa] I wanted to I wanted to ask what a ghost in a dream might symbolize? They've been showing up a lot in mine. Also, is the notion of the different levels of a house correlating with the conscious, subconscious etc. correct?? [Michael_Entity] In response to the first part: A “ghost” in most respects symbolizes the template created and left unfulfilled by a fragment. These “ghosts” can be of templates created by present self or other Personalities. In your case, Aa, you attract those which retained a template or imprint in their life, but feel it is unfulfilled. Those seeking resolution visit you regularly. In response to the latter part of the question: We ask first if you mean this as in having multiple floors in a dwelling? [Aa] yes [Michael_Entity] Yes, this would be symbolic. They would only correlate to “subconscious” or “conscious” if you chose to imbue them with that symbology. Most “levels” in a dwelling are indicative symbolically of the largest or most used space on that landing. The bedroom level could be said to be the “subconscious” then, but that must be individually determined. The levels and their meaning will need to be explored personally, if there is differentiation of levels at all. [la] What's the meaning of recurring dreams in which I am trying to escape a huge, towering tidal wave, sometimes a female friend or child is with me? [Michael_Entity] To walk through for La: The characters with you are EXPRESSIVE facets, the tidal wave is the INSPIRATIONAL facet, and the escaping is the ACTION facet. This dream is simply indicative of your want for protection of aspects of self that you feel have been brought against their will into highly charged, emotional “tidal waves” in your life. You are seeing these aspects of you (the young girl) as needing direction while the one aspect is in a position to act as guide (your present self), fully knowing the enormity of emotion that is swelling and engulfing you. This is a dream reflecting an on-going procession of healing between your present self, and a couple of past selves. You have always reached across time to encourage or seek support for self from self. This leads us to a final important note needed for the Symbolic level. When in sleeping state, it is not always convenient to follow through with the symbols as they have been presented, once in waking state. It is the task then to take what you remember and follow it through in your imagination. In La’s case, it would be to turn and allow the tidal wave to wash over, standing strong, creating strength and trust against what was originally seen as only motivating “escape”. In most dreams remembered upon awakening, if there is a sense of symbolism and need for follow through, it is on the ACTION facet that you will direct the imagination. The sleeping dream state on the Symbolic Level gives you an indication as to where you stand presently in your life in most cases, while the utilization of that information upon awakening can actually change the impact of the experiences originally symbolized in the dream. This is all simply another tool, though one usually only taken up by late mature and older souls. [Ka] I have a recurring image in my dreams, of a cat that talks and has some kind of superior wisdom or knowledge that I and the other around me do not have. What does this mean? [Michael_Entity] This also stems from the Astral, by the way. This is a “familiar” of yours and a vehicle of expression, personified in a cat, used by your Essence as a conduit for messages from your own entity. Though your Essence has the final effect on your receipt of information, the source stems from accessing your discarnate entity members. This symbol is drawn from your lives working with large felines as symbolically representing higher wisdom. There are quite a few of you as our students who place great emphasis on this species. This is partially due to their easy access to off-planet incarnated species as well; they are excellent conduits of various energies. We will continue the next chat exploring the Astral Levels. We suggest taking in your environment, from sleep and waking, through the understanding of those facets discussed here. We will summarize again: The EXPRESSION facet is what you see as “you”, the INSPIRATIONAL as what is “not you” (taken as messages) and the ACTION facet is how you respond to any stimuli.
  10. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here now. We will begin with some discussion about Dreams. As we have already delineated the nature of Dreaming in other exchanges that are documented, we may abbreviate here, making room for more dynamic discussion. We will outline the basics, and then fill in more details based upon our exchange with you here. First, we will define the Dream State, as differentiated from the Waking State. Dream State is any degree of consciousness that involves less than the totality of bodies that a fragment is using. Waking State is any degree of consciousness that includes the totality of all bodies that a fragment is using. Waking State cannot happen in Dreams, as the Physical Body must be included for that Waking State. However, Dream States can happen outside of sleep, as they do not require the totality of bodies. In terms of "bodies," we speak here of the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and "spiritual" bodies. The Spiritual body is the sum that is greater than the parts, but not a specific body. There are 7 Primary Bodies, or put another way, densities, for every Sentient incarnated, and these correspond to the Chakras or Centers. When not incarnated, there are still 7, even without the Physical Body, because the "Spiritual" Body becomes the primary housing, if you will. When one is not in a Physical Body, then Waking States and Dream States still exist, using the same definitions as stated above. To Dream while not incarnated is still a matter of any degree of consciousness using fewer bodies than the totality of bodies. In other words, even we still Dream. Dream States are "entered" through one of three gateways: through the Instinctive Center, the Lower Centers, or Higher Centers. Or put another way, through the Instinctive Body, Lower Bodies, or Higher Bodies. Each of these gateways, or entrances, has their own language, which is highly personal and developed over many lifetimes. Each body interacts using those different languages. The Instinctive Body is entirely symbolic, so we refer to this as the Symbolic Level of Dreaming. Because Symbols are things, it could be said that this is the Physical Level of Dreaming. The Lower Centers/Bodies interact through the medium of the Astral Plane. These Bodies use Emotion as a primary language. It could be said, then, that this is the Emotional, or Astral Level of Dreaming. The Higher Bodies/Centers are not specific to any Plane, and uses the Intellect as a medium for communication. It would be the Intellectual Level of Dreaming. Though these Bodies are not specific to any Plane, we rarely see these functioning beyond the Physical Plane or the Astral Plane while a Physical Body is a part of the collection of bodies. In fact, most dreaming is almost always contained to the current Plane where one's consciousness is focused, and the one just beyond. Understanding "where" one is when dreaming can help one to understand, interpret, and apply any meaning that might be gained from the memory of a dream. If a dream is remembered, it is relevant. No dreams are irrelevant. All dreams are relevant, but those that one does not remember are usually relevant to other bodies beyond the Physical. If a dream is filled with oddities, things that do not "make sense," actions that stand out, is fantastical, and clearly symbolic, you are seeing the Symbolic/Instinctive level of dreaming. Repetitive dreams, anxiety dreams, falling dreams, etc fall into this level. ALL dreaming will first enter through this gateway. This means that even the most vivid or lucid of dreams may have elements of this Level involved. Through the Instinctive Center, the entrance into the other Centers is made accessible. Dreams from the Symbolic/Instinctive Level are directly related to current or past personalities, and to the self, only. In most cases, it is the process of organizing experiences from that day, relative to which Centers were worked the most. It is also the uploading and downloading of information relative to the current lifetime and its own records. The Instinctive realm has 7 different areas through which one would go, and depending upon where that dreaming is occurring, of course, corresponding to the 7 Parts of a Center. Emotional Parts of the Instinctive Center dreams are different from the Instinctive Part of the Instinctive Center, for instance. Instinctive Parts of the Instinctive Realm are the most bizarre and "senseless" dreams, using pure symbolism. Think of these Centers/Realms as having rooms corresponding to the various Parts. Those "rooms" then connect to a larger version of itself that is its own Center/Realm with its own Parts/rooms. If one is in the Instinctive/Symbolic Realm, he will be in one of those rooms, but still in the Instinctive Realm. If, for instance, he is in the Emotional Part of that realm, he can move through another door, so to speak, that leads into the Emotional Center. Through the Emotional Part, one can only move into an Emotional Center, no other, and so on. To be clear, regardless of which Center one has moved into from a room/part within the Instinctive Realm, it will be the Emotional/Astral Realm at that point. [Martha] So you can't then go to the Intellectual/Astral directly, you'd have to go back to Instinctive and then go to the Intellectual part of Instinctive, and then go to the Intellectual astral, or am I confused? MEntity: Martha, of course, we are using a symbolism in itself to convey these realms and mapping of dreams, so we wish to clarify that this is not literal, but it is accurate. In response to your question, yes, the Instinctive Center is the hub through which all dreaming or access to other realms is possible. Even in terms of channeling, it is through the Instinctive Center that access beyond is achieved. It cannot be done any other way. We can also add here that the emphasis of channeling, style of channeling, voice of channeling, energy of channeling, etc is colored by this mapping, and how a channel moves into these other realms. To answer your question more specifically, Martha, in each dream cycle, there is only one path. There is usually not a return and redirection. [Brian_W] How might switching between these rooms / realms appear in our dreams? MEntity: Symbolic into Astral. Where one needs or wants to go for that dream cycle is chosen for that cycle. Once in, say, the Emotional Room of the Emotional Realm, there would be the Intellectual Part of that, or the Intellectual Room within the Emotional Room within the Emotional Realm. This may seem complicated, but it is not, and these "rooms within rooms" reflect the depth to which the consciousness has gone for that cycle. If we could draw an image for you, it would look something like a Pie with 7 pieces as the Symbolic Realm. An even larger concentric circle would be around that, with 7 sections relative to the 7 Pie Pieces, and each section having 7 sections. Beyond this is open space, if you will. This is a crude, 2-dimensional map, but it works. The encircling realm of the Astral is not static in this map, and can be "turned" to align with whatever entrance is relevant for dreaming. Now that we have shared the mapping, we will share some of the terrain. This will help in your determining from "where" a dream may have been remembered. We have already stated that your Symbolic Realm is fairly obvious in that it is full of symbols, but symbolism does not stop in the Symbolic Realm. The Symbolic Realm is dominated by symbols, but the Astral Realm will use symbols, as well, just not as a dominant language. We have a system for understanding these symbols, using what we refer to as "facets" of this Realm as relative to the parts/rooms we already described. In most cases of dreaming Symbolically or Astrally, those dreams remembered are those from the rooms of the Intellect, Emotion, or Moving. The Intellectual part of Symbolic Realm is usually where one plays out memories, breaks them down, and plays them over and over, usually because of, or inclusive of, something that represents you on some level. As the Instinctive/Symbolic Level is all about the current or past Personality (or sub-personalities), the Intellectual part is about identity, sense of self, and there are often symbols involved that are seen as defining you, or clearly representative in that way. As the Intellect is also about Expression, it is important to consider this when interpreting from this part, as it often relates to what is not being said, what needs to be said, or expressed, or what is being collected by the Personality as expressions from around him. The Emotional or Inspirational room/part of Symbolic is where one tends to find "messages" in the symbols. Although one could say this about any dream, the Emotional part of the Symbolic is usually what prompts the most surprising, "I wonder what THAT meant?" kind of responses upon remembering or re-telling. This is because the Personality left with a sense of something being encrypted in the symbolism, and senses that message. The Moving facet of interpretation, or the Moving part of the Symbolic Realm tends to be where your disaster, apocalyptic, falling, anxiety, and other physical-plane based actions in symbols come into play. We should clarify here that when we used the word "facet," we mean that relative to Interpretation. In other words, Symbolic Realm, Emotional Part, requiring interpretation through the Emotional/Inspiration Facet. We will quickly cover the more common parts of the Astral, and their facets of interpretation, and then open the floor for questions. Where the Symbolic Realm emphasizes the current or past Personalities or sub-personalities, the Astral emphasizes the Essence. Symbolism will exist in both places, but when from the Symbolic, it is relative to Personality, whereas in the Astral, the symbols are relative to the Essence. The Intellectual/Expressive part of the Astral is where one tends "to go" for learning, recalibrating the life, rearranging Agreements and Karma, and generally examine the life in relation to the entire cycle If one remembers dreams from this part of the Astral Realm, it tends to be sensed as a kind of clarity in the Waking State, a sense of direction, and things feel "in order," even if they appear not to be. The details of the dreams tend to feel as if one has been at a meeting, in conversation, reading, etc., learning. Problem solving comes from this part of the realm. The Emotional/Inspirational part of the Astral is where your Essence goes to play, to balance Karma that does not require the physical body, for healing, and for processing more complicated emotions. It is also where one meets with his Guides for updates and insights regarding the life. This is often remembered as those faceless or familiar but vague figures with whom one is interacting in the dream. This part of the Astral is often from where one wakes up to have the ominous or foreboding feeling left, or agitation and a "bad day," when one has just burned a Ribbon. The Moving, or Action part is where the past is processed, including past lives. On the Symbolic Level, when a past personality is explored, it is so symbolic it is not often realized as being past life related. In the Astral, however, it is quite elaborate and rich in detail, particularly in terms of the environment. These dreams tend to emphasize your environment, and this is often recalled as being utterly familiar, yet completely unfamiliar to your Waking State. Beyond the Astral is the Intellectual Realm, which translates into Lucid Dreaming or Out of Body Experiences. We will now open the floor to your questions about what has been shared so far, but will save the dream interpretation process for after that. [Martha] Sometimes I'll have a very vivid dream where it seems like the other person is really there and I remember the dream easily the next day -- is that Lucid? MEntity: Lucid is where choices can be actively made from within the dream, and the awareness that one is dreaming is clear. A vivid dream is not necessarily Lucid. In almost all cases where there are other people in a dream of significance, it is the Astral Realm. [Martha] I don't think I've ever had a lucid one then MEntity: However, keep in mind that Lucid Dreaming is not confined to any realm, though usually stays within the Astral or Symbolic. When Lucidity is in the Physical Plane, where consciousness has discovered the capacity to point to any part of the Intellectual realm, it is an Out of Body Experience. To clarify the last sentence: Imagine a computer monitor with a diagram of the mapping we have already described. Your cursors moving about within that map is like Lucid Dreaming, and when outside of that map, it is Out of Body. NEXT, Brian. [Brian_W] Could you comment as to whether the action taking place in the dream is related to the center whereas the terrain is related to the part of the dream? That is, a flying dream might be Instinctual center, while flying through an unknown / foreign environment might be the Moving Part of the Instinctual Center? MEntity: Flying dreams are never from the Symbolic Realm, even if symbols are involved. They are almost always of the Emotional part of the Astral. Keep in mind, that within that Emotional Room of the Astral, there are also parts/rooms. So one may be flying, but if the environment is striking in some way, it may be the Moving Part of the Emotional Room. However, we will add that in most cases, though not all, the flying itself is the point of those dreams, as they are "you" and your Essence playing. More precisely, "you" AS your Essence. We will also point out that upon waking, it is not uncommon to mix the memories of different dream scenarios. [Brian_W] Each representing a different part / room? MEntity: Not necessarily. All parts will be present in all dreams to some extent, so one would want to pay most attention to what is most prominent. If in a flying dream, the flying is incidental to your trying to outfly an electric tornado, then the electric tornado may be the important element to consider. If in a flying dream, your flying with other people seems to be the emphasis, then it may be more about those relationships than about the flying. If in a flying dream, you are terrified of the fact that you are flying, it may be the anxiety and terror feeling that is more important to consider. Flying dreams are almost always for play, or for bringing play to an otherwise "serious" scenario. NEXT [Maureen] Is there a co-relation to peoples' natural centering and the type of dreaming they experience, i.e. would moving centered people favour or have more past life dreams? and -- if so -- what type of dreaming would be favoured by emotionally centered and intellectually centered people? MEntity: To the extent that one is emphasizing a Center of gravity in the Waking State, there may be a correlation to the Dream State. It is often more immediately relevant to explore in Dream State that which correlates to Waking State. However, if there are imbalances, then the balancing Center may be explored. While this can tend to be the case, in general, the parts of Realms explored tend to change too often, based on several factors in a day, for us to say it is consistent enough for a consistent correlation. Especially for Older Souls who are working to break from the Traps of Centering, and to balance out all Centers. When one learns to control his dreams, he can train himself to access specific parts of Realms for help, so the more interest one has in Dreams, the more likely the access is to whatever is most helpful. We tend to see more of a consistency on a larger scale as relative to the Centering of a year, if anything. Being an Emotionally-Centered year, we find that many of our students are in the Emotional Realm working on self-karma, karma, relationship issues within and without, etc. With your questions answered, we will now describe a kind of quick reference for your ease in interpreting your dreams. [Bobby] In the energy report for the year, you have said it is Moving Centered, is there a discrepancy there? MEntity: Yes, that is a discrepancy here. We are speaking of the previous year here. You are in a Moving-Centered year, with an emphasis on all that the Moving part of the Realms entails as described above. Our sense of Time is often as accurate as our channel's. To interpret any Symbol, you must look at it from two levels: Individually and Collectively. Because symbolism is pulled from the Instinctive, it is often based upon Collective meaning, as generated over many lives with many people sharing similar experiences. So an Owl in a dream can be interpreted globally for those who are on a planet with Owls. However, you would want to examine your own symbolism of the Owl, as well. While there may be relevance to its meaning collectively, one person may find Owls terrifying, while another finds them beautiful. The Collective interpretation fitted to your Interpretation can often reveal a great deal of insight. For instance, if Owl represents Emerging Information or Insight Collectively, and you are terrified of Owls, the dream may be playing out your fear of knowing something you would rather not know. Add to that the INTERACTION between you and the symbol, or between symbols, and this is your whole interpretation. If you shoo the bird away from your window sill, it may mean you are rejecting any indication pointing to information you would rather not know you know. If you open a window and let it in, you may find you are closer to allowing yourself to know. And so on. Collective Meaning + Individual Meaning + Interaction = Interpretation If one is interpreting dreams from the Astral, there may be symbols involved and these would be treated the same way. However, everything else on the Astral is fairly literal. If you are having sex, you are having sex. If you are having conversation, you are having conversation. If you are flying, you are flying, etc. Now we will open the floor for your sharing of a dream that you may want to be interpreted, keeping in mind that it is your place to do this, first. [EricM] I noticed going through my dreams from the past that I tend to have some overarching themes. For example, I’ve had many dreams over time that center on trying to foster peace and resolution between warring groups of people, or else protecting bystanders from the warring. The dreams are not really recurring dreams, since they tend to be quite different in symbols, actors and scenarios, but they share that theme. Is this valid, and if so, why might one have such themes? MEntity: If a theme is consistent, but the scenario and/or participants change, it often falls into the realm of Symbolic, with the theme being the symbol. This is often done for the Personality to work out ways to deal with similar themes in the life, which may be based in current experiences, anticipated experiences, or fantasy/imagined experiences. The playing out of the theme in such varying ways is most likely the various ways your past Personalities played out the theme. In other words, in what way is this theme in your Waking State? Is it feared? Is it something you find fascinating as a study? Is it something from your past left unresolved? And so on. Replaying themes such as this often indicate what is just below the surface of the Waking State consciousness at all times, so it would most likely be directly relevant. [EricM] I'm not too sure. Perhaps as a study in healing or an anticipation. MEntity: Do you find that you avoid conflict? Do you gravitate toward it? Are you sensitive to it? [EricM] I generally avoid conflict, as I am very sensitive to it and find it distressing MEntity: Do you find yourself ineffective in that area, and wish to improve upon your confidence for dealing with similar scenarios? [EricM] that seems valid, open conflict is an area I feel least effective [EricM] So perhaps learning to effectively manage scenarios of open conflict? MEntity: This may be your key to understanding this arc. In your dreams you know what to do, how to do it, effectively and even heroically. This recurring theme may be a part of you reminding you that the avoidance of conflict is not necessary, and that you may have more to offer in resolution than you think. [EricM] that does make sense MEntity: We would think, then, in this case, the theme shows up in your dreams when you have felt particularly ineffective or insignificant, not necessarily in terms of conflicts, but in terms of any sort of resolution and recognition. NEXT Maureen [Maureen1] I had a re-occurring dream when I was very young: “I” was driving my mother to the hospital to “have me” / give birth to me. Before we could reach the hospital my body would turn to “whey” and bones – I would just disintegrate in the driver’s seat. We never made it to the hospital in any dream – ever. [Maureen1] I have come to think of it as being more about me being in the ‘driving’ seat in ‘my’ need to be born to my mother – possibly to work out self-karma or ‘whatever’. I needed her in the equation – more than she needed me – hence she was in the passenger seat. The part about never getting to the hospital it what seems strange to me – I don’t understand that. MEntity: We would first say that the symbols for interpretation would be Whey, Mother, Pregnancy, Driving, and Hospital. Both the Collective and the Personal, and then how these are Interacting. In this case, Whey, Mother, and Pregnancy are all variations of the same symbolism. They are different stages, or states. Whey is the medium for the more solid parts. Driving is almost always a Collective symbol for the direction the life is going, or the path it is on. The Hospital is rather literal in that it is clear direction of intent for the life, or the path, which is for support, healing, etc. You would want to then look at what you think of Whey, your Mother, Pregnancy, and Driving. What do you think of Whey? [Maureen1] well I was very young when I had the dream [Maureen1] now it would mean no support -- or not much MEntity: That will not matter. You would have forgotten the dream if it had no more relevance. To give you a better interpretation, ask yourself what you think of Whey, not what you think Whey means. [Maureen1] icky actually MEntity: Exactly. Consider that Whey is a medium for more solid parts of itself, and you find it "icky," you may find that you were already aware of a growing, or potential, resentment for positions you would be in. [Maureen1] that makes sense then MEntity: This would grow into adulthood with you. Being the medium that holds together more solid (or demanding, needy, etc) parts. Meanwhile, this role was not allowing you to be born, to be you, to be yourself. The "parts" held together by you referred to not only parts of yourself, but the people in your life. You have been the whey, or the mothermilk, in that symbolic sense. This dream was of the Symbolic Realm. We will add here, that for many of these Symbolic Dreams, the active completion of them in Waking State can contribute a great deal to the healing that some of these may indicate as being needed by you. For instance, playing out this dream to the point of actually getting to the hospital and being born, may affect a part of your subconscious in a way that is profoundly beneficial and freeing. NEXT, Brian. [Brian_W] This might require a whole session of its own in private, so I'll let you pick out what you might seem relevant or helpful. [Brian_W] While there hasn't seemed to be a great deal of overaching themes, I have noticed a few "features" in my dreams lately, mostly where I am falling asleep in the dream and waking back up into the dream without physically waking and I think last night you (Michael) came to visit in mentioning about the quality of experiences, but it didn't quite make sense. [Brian_W] What was with me trying to protect myself from the "Black Cloud of Death" last night, or the dream I had on August 20th that I have at least interpreted as my "graduation" from the 3rd IM in positive and Essence contact? How do you present yourselves to me in my dreams? MEntity: In dreams that do not make sense, either clearly, because of strange symbols, or vaguely because of missing elements, the strange symbols can usually be interpreted, but the vague, missing elements dreams are probably those instances where the details are for Essence, and not necessarily useful for the Personality. We think the "Black Cloud of Death" is your symbol for all of the things you either dislike or do not understand in yourself or others. It will be up to you to interpret this more meaningfully, as in using the formula of Collective Meaning + Personal Meaning + Interaction How you were protecting yourself will give some insights into what was being played out. [Brian_W] It was like I was trying to create a fortified structure for me to "ride out the storm" in MEntity: We think this is fairly reflective in terms of how this is your symbolic playing out of Waking State scenarios. The playing out of familiar scenarios in symbolic ways is a clever way of opening up to new ideas and solutions, but also to see how the choices are effective or ineffective. If you felt safer in the dream because of your efforts, you may find that it was an indication that it is okay for you to sometimes "ride it out," and lie low when dealing with your dislikes or lack of understanding yourself and others. If you felt anxiety, it may mean that solution is not the most effective. And so on We show up in many ways to our students in dreams, but we are interpreted in even more ways. [Brian_W] Last night I just heard a "voice" in the dream that I associated with you (Michael) MEntity: We have presented ourselves to you in your dreams as children, but we are often interpreted as vague speaking. If you would like to "hear" us more clearly, imagine yourself playing on a playground as you fall asleep. We may find it easier to exchange with you there. [Brian_W] Alright, I'll see you guys by the swingset then MEntity: Next, Martha. [Martha] I have a recurring theme where I have a vivid dream that I am with one of the men that I love (one at a time Bobby!), and usually there is some acknowledgement of mutual affection, love, lust, friendship and closeness but I can’t get past some boundary or other to just have a fun dream or enjoy that time with that person. Usually as they start to kiss me or something I remember they have a girlfriend in real life and I pull back, or we are both aware of the wife, girlfriend, whoever and end up just holding each other or sitting together and that is enjoyable and meaningful but not really enough. And I do see how the theme of recognized love or connection that I can’t let myself have applies to my lack of intimacy or matedness in waking life, but I don’t seem to learn anything new, just the same thing every time. Recognition, then realization all I can do is appreciate the connection, then understand why I can’t indulge and then that’s it. It seems like this is a lesson I have already learned, but clearly not or I wouldn’t keep having these kind of dreams. MEntity: This falls into the Symbolic Realm, and tends toward the Fantasy range, which is one of the reasons it is a sort of limbo state, as it reflects your fantasies in Waking State. It is simply a bit more submersive. Or rather, immersive. [Martha] if I'm going to have a fantasy, couldn't it be more fun? MEntity: To "have more fun," the fantasy would need to be replaced by invitation, which can be done upon falling asleep. Invite the fragment to meet with you in the most literal meaning of the word, using your fantasy as part of that invitation so as to show what it is you would like to experience. However, if you find there is no result from this, it would seem to us to indicate that you simply do not find it interesting to resort to the fantasy, or even the "fun" that could be had in a dream. [Martha] I do!! I do!! MEntity: That is for you to validate, then. We can only describe what certain scenarios may or may not indicate. Old Souls tend toward sensual dreams, or affection, because that is what is truly craved over stimulation. It tends to be more honest and direct. Even in dreams that are sexual, they tend to be just that: sexual, but not sex. This is a tendency. Not a rule. [Martha] I agree, I'm just wishing I could not have to include their girlfriend in the dream MEntity: Your description of your dream indicates to us that honesty is far more important to you than your stimulation, which may be part of why you do not have the "fun" dreams. [Martha] I get it MEntity: What we suggest is to allow room for flexibility in your symbolism. Instead of a replica of the individual, which brings with it replication of other parts of his life, invite another version of him. Because there are many versions of him. NEXT, Bobby. [Bobby] When I woke from a dream I had this week, I remembered "Dachau" and "rye bread" and was just curious what this was related to? A past life? Another ET past life coming through? MEntity: This dream appears to have been Astral. It is yet another Past Life, but not your own, which indicates to us that there may have been some information gathering relative to the fragment of focus. Though we are not sure about who it is, it is most likely relevant to a relationship that is prominent to you. The details are of a bakery near a camp in that vicinity that was friendly to the prisoners. [Bobby] Is this typical, dreaming of someone else's past lives? This is the 2nd time now that I know of MEntity: It is not unusual at all. We are all connected, and the older the soul gets, the more its "memories" begin to expand beyond its own, and accesses relevant information for helping with the current lifetime. However, that access is usually limited to those mathematically linked to a fragment, or those fragments direcly relevant to the current Personality. We will close with a quick suggestion for how to direct your dreams more effectively. [Bobby] thank you... very insightful MEntity: Using the map we described earlier, we suggest being creative in your interpretation of is, so that each "Room" is understood as representing these various parts of each realm. Depending on the nature of the dream one wishes to explore, imagine walking the path it would take to get to and through the door into that room. To add to your effectiveness, it would also help to name your rooms and even to write down the room you wish to visit, as a pre-heading for your dream recall. Experimentation and record-keeping are key here, in bringing more and more control and recall. Keep in mind that regardless of what you intend to dream, it may be bumped by other priorities relevant for your well-being. If rooms are not of interest for you to use, then direct intention is as helpful, alone or even combined with the map. For example, "I want to dream about what I am doing in my life that is hurting me the most, and how to change that." or "What obstacles do I still need to overcome before I open to true intimacy?" or "I would like to get to know my next Mate Agreement." or even, "What have I experienced between lives when I died before?" The prompts that work best are the ones that of strong interest to you. We must close now. Our channel grows weary. Good evening to each of you.
  11. I wonder why i dreamt of Robbie Williams twice last night. Unfortunately some of the details have espacep me because i woke and slept several times after both dreams, and also i didn't really want to dwell in the dreams too much after waking because they were kind of unpleasant. The atmosphere in the dreams was neutral, but i felt uncomfortable thinking about them awake in the dark :P. In the first dream, i was staying in some accommodation, there was some largish wooden buildings with rooms, another building was a little bit further but not too far down on the property, it had some outbuildings too. I unfortunately can't remember what was happening exactly, but there was at least a small investigation of sorts, because Robbie Williams had been murdered in the further main building the previous night. I was staying in the other buildings, and was just kind of glad that there hadn't been dead flesh in my building. In the second dream i was sort of adventuring somewhere with a group of people. One of them was Robbie. I'm not sure if we wanted to or needed to get to this place, which might have been a sort of a futuristic city on a sandy beach. But there was this narrow canyon we had to get through (it was not the only way, but it was where we would have to go to get there.) I think it was half natural, as in the left side of it was rock or earth, and the land was sloping right towards the ocean, but the right side was manmade, perhaps some metal. I have a slight feeling it was deliberately made to hinder people from getting there. It was maybe 1,5 meters wide and a bit less than 10 meters tall. There was a lot of black plastic webbing, a bit like this but with larger ~25cm big holes, hanging from the top. A few people started walking through, but almost as soon as they got there, some of the webbing started falling. They quickly got kind of delirious, sort of dumb and numb and happy. It appeared there was some glue on the black material and we thought it was the toxins in the glue that was affecting them. Robbie was a bit closer to it than me, but he didn't get affected by it, eitehr he wasn't close enough or he could maybe resist it somehow, he had this knowing look on his face. He knew what was going on. The rest of us left, i think Robbie might have stayed there with those affected. We went to get help, and not far at all was this big building with a quiet party or event going. I could even see those in the web from this small glass back door we were at. There was few people wandering about in the hallway in smart gear. I don't know why we didn't ask them for help. I closed the door, i think to stop the toxic glue fumes from getting in, although i hesitated, wondering if i should leave it open so they could call for help. I found out this was the Australian police headquarters, but there didn't seem to be anyone on duty there.
  12. I'm not quite sure how long i have had this happen in a dream every so often. For some years anyhow. What happens, is that there is this super powerful energy that sort of lands on me through my head, or head and shoulders from top down. It's either more unpleasant than pleasant, or just feels kind of neutral, so it does not feel like a surge of love or healing or anything like that. The last one i've had was 2 nights ago, it was neutral and soundless. They used to always have this very loud sound, like i was inside a massive dome bell when it gets hit, except there is a slight electronic or "digital" tinge to it aswell. In some dreams i have invited the experience, in the moment wondering if something will happen if i open myself up for it, and it does. In some it just comes to me, and i sense it coming just before. Sometimes there has been a sense or situation that something spiritual is happening, but its always very much me just wondering whats going on if anything (of importance), especially when it's felt fairly unpleasant. I used to expect it to feel "good" but it never has. So even in the dream itself i'm wordering about the nature but also the validity of the experience; I don't really have any information or any "feeling", other than being exposed to, or inserted with, a powerful surge. Sometimes there is a presence of 2 or 3 other people or beings there as well, but other than that the occurence and the aftermath is very much in just grey/white space. Anyone experiencing anything like this, or any guesses what this is?
  13. 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.
  14. October 7, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Dreams and Symbols 3 of 3 [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. One moment. As Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] shared, we will begin by taking questions in reference to our Energy Forecast first. You may begin if there are questions. [Luna2ne] It sounds like this month is a clearing process for all of us? Before we begin work on this year's platform, and the platform for the next 1000 years? [Michael_Entity] In part, yes. It is not new though. This is no different than any other period of release. The difference now being only that there will appear to be more to release or consider or realize before moving forward. In truth, it is simply a heightened projection of meaning placed on otherwise ordinary events. You are moving into an Instinctive Centered year, and this month being the “new year” for you Older Souls, it is your first movement toward that. We say “this being the new year” in reference to this month, October, on your calendars. What would normally be a simple process, mild depression, or “the blahs”, even spaciness, will now be laced with what we called Grief. Not all you of will shed tears as a result of this process, but your bodies will certainly shed truths and import the foundations of new ones. Hence, the connection to the “next thousand years” and platforms. [MaryBV] We are all remembering our dreams this week. Is Michael referring to these when they talk about death and endings? In other words, do we need to close our past before we can move ahead to a new level of awareness? [Michael_Entity] We would not say ‘close’, instead, we would say embrace. Many of you find your pasts to be the only validity of your being. This is a distraction from your potential. We do not pass judgment, we only speak in terms of what is sought by Essence. As you, as Personality, become ever more blurred in differentiation from Essence, memories flow in dreams, in thoughts, and in fantasy, all stemming in some way from the foundations of who “you” have been. There will come a lifetime for all of you (as Essence) where full cognitive awareness of most lives, loves, and immortality is accepted, making that life the pivotal life that ties up the culmination of all that Essence seeks in this Grand Cycle. For some of you, this life is that life. For others, this life is being AFFECTED by the life that IS that life, even if in your “future” or “past”. In either case, validation is necessary on multiple levels in order to evolve. This validation will come through the sound and personal realization of the “past” and what that has contributed to your being. When we have spoken of this period of time being of Grief, it is the absorption/dispersion of long-held truths that have been generated by various selves in this life and others. This may happen in dreams. Rather than being distracted by the memories, or held in the “past” by them, the truths will be released/absorbed as PART of “you” and this could be one of your most freeing experiences then. So we say “embrace”, rather than “close”. Though we are not prone to humour as you might perceive it, we do find it humourous in your cultures to be preoccupied with weight gain, while on the Essence Levels you are always seeking to grow “bigger”. This is, after all, an expanding universe. [Azure362] Can you expand upon how the physical body will shed truths and import the foundations of new truths? [Michael_Entity] Yes. We include in the “physical body” also the environment in which the physical body resides. This would include its relationships, its foods, its health, its interactions; it’s sensation of textures, etc. If anything is rare in this process, it is the potential for this to be a period where you feel “reset”. This past year has had little substance if examined in retrospect, at least in terms of time. It was passed through quickly due to the Centering of the year. This year has acted as a literal, material filter. What will be happening throughout the month is a cleansing of that filter, an examination of what has come to pass, and a sense of freedom as this filter is freed from obstacles. We lack a better analogy at this point, but it will do. So when we say “shed truths”, it will be that which has remained in your ‘filter”, not working. When we say “import foundations for new truths”, we speak of the freedom that cleansing will have and the room gained (the filter cleansed) for new truths to reside, ‘stick with you”, so to speak. We would suggest each of you turn inward and/or look outward to find two truths that have changed for you on each level. Personal, Global, and what truths you have come closer to that are Universal. It may be revealing to see where you have become freed. On the more specific physical level, our statement literally means that some of you will change certain physical attributes in accommodation of your process. Illness may occur, or healing, whichever is more adequate to explore the new truths. Changes in diet, changes in feelings toward others, changes in how you sleep, etc. All symptoms of your personal realizations, releases, and possible grieving. The most obvious we can see occurring and prevalent is in the complete esteem each of you might have as you experience YOU. With or without external references for value or validation, each seems to have a sense of self that is sturdy and stands strong, even if alone. This is unusual, even for some of our oldest students. In short, you all seem to be loving yourselves more. We will begin the topic then. LEVELS OF DREAMING: ASTRAL LEVELS Astral Levels of dreaming are the territory of Essence. Astral Levels of dreaming are entered through one of the three lower centers, the Emotional, the Intellectual, or the Action. This is all entered from the Instinctive Center, where all dreams originate. In this state, rather than each event, object, or person being symbolic (as in the Symbolic/Instinctive Level), these become more “real”, at least to Essence. There is still an element of Symbology here, as symbology permeates almost all levels of being. Instead of the symbology representing facets of SELF, the symbology represents facets of SOUL. Where the psyche of the Personality gets to explore itself in sub-personalities while in the Instinctive/Symbolic Level, the Astral Level allows the Essence to explore itself through the actual Personalities of various lifetimes. It is in this Level that you resolve emotional Karma, strike up Agreements, update plans, engage past lives, etc. When entered through the ACTION entrance, this level is marked by great activity of course and environments become prominent. This is where you notice more WHERE you are. This is the facet where past lives are mostly played out. This is with exceptions though, and is not static, just more common. This facet is used for the “past” because Essence is more easily able to manipulate environment to resemble scenarios recalling lives as another self. The EMOTIONAL facet is the entrance where most resolution, healing, or comprehension occurs between present self and past self, or self and another fragment. It is marked by impact on you even upon waking. The Emotional Entrance of the Astral Level is marked by impact on the waking state more than other entrances. Though you may find it difficult to differentiate which actual Center is being experienced in the dream, we find these marked differences an easy way to identify if you choose. In the Emotional entrance, you scream, you fight, you cry, you laugh, sometimes even waking experiencing the same. The INTELLECTUAL facet is where you learn. This is where you, as Essence, gather information, gain insights, process the Cycle to that point, and make plans, agreements, and set up Karmic engagements. This is marked by a sense of being in what you interpret as “school”. These then are brief explorations of the three lower center entrances making up the ASTRAL Level of dreaming. We remind you that this is an evolving body of information through this channel and others and we suggest reading all transcripts to grasp the continuity. We will take questions now. [ksh] Does the soul exist on different levels i.e. the Tao level, astral, casual etc? [Michael_Entity] Yes. Of Course. Would you like to elaborate on your question? [ksh] Can we connect with those souls? Do they have a separate intelligence? [Michael_Entity] Intelligence as you know it is no longer a factor on some Higher Levels. We remind you we use “higher and lower” only as a convenience, not a truth. [ksh] How do we communicate with them ? [Michael_Entity] These “higher” parts of “you” (and by “you” we mean Essence) do not have a sense of separateness, though to “you” as Personality, of course, you would seek contact AS IF it is separate. Some of our own channels are working with “you” on this level as even we speak now. For instance, our channel known as Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] to you is working with his own collective Energy Ring as a consciousness. This would be likened to your future selves, collective. We do not have a “how” at this point to share within this space. We may address this in another context later. But yes, “you” exist on all of those levels and can be accessed. [Sandra51] Questions directed to the topic of the Levels of Dreaming. [Suzee] Is the feeling of anxiety present in dreams part of the emotional entrance? [Michael_Entity] This would depend on certain factors. Anxiety can sometimes be the waking state’s interpretation of any level of dreaming. Upon leaving a dream, the waking personality might infuse its present uncertainty on the memory of the dream, even if not actually felt within the dream. Aside from this possibility, anxiety would be more the result of being in the Emotional entrance, yes. More often though, as we spoke of, the waking INTELLECT that cannot reason the Emotional entrance’s experiences creates the anxiety AFTER waking. [FloorDog] The Element water is commonly associated with the astral. I’m curious as to the meaning of water in astral dreams, especially large bodies? I find in many dreams I seek them out and take pleasure in immersing myself in them, especially surf. Would you say this is the action entrance? (assuming they are astral in nature)? [Michael_Entity] If the element of water is to be interpreted symbolically on its own, it is most likely within the Instinctive Level. If it is part of a landscape of the Astral, which can be differentiated by the thoroughness and detail of the landscape/environment, then it is part of the Emotional elements of the past or present explored. It is safe to assume, if the Level is clearly Astral, that any element (predefined in your culture) that relates to a Center is that Center being explored WITHIN the context of that Level of dreaming. For instance to be submerged in WATER (emotional) in a ACTION environment (with the landscape and scenery being the prominent factor), then it might be safe to assume you are exploring the emotional part of the moving center. We will take personal questions now to the best of our ability at this time. It is advised by Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] that you consider the group and time constraints. [TCB] You mentioned about the energy ring consciousness, What was my dream about the ‘energy ring’ with Barry, and some others, that I didn’t recognize? [Michael_Entity] This was a personal definition, different than ours, speaking of the connections between yourself and presently incarnated connections. It is information about your Configuration. A Septant. This may be validating or not, but we are limited in what is available about this dream at this time. [MaryBV] I would like Michael to comment on the memory of my kneeling on a cold, stone floor in a cathedral surrounded by my women. What life am I remembering and is this an example of a past life memory done through the emotional astral entrance? I don’t need a blow by blow account, just a very brief comment. [Michael_Entity] This would be the ACTION entrance, Astral Level. This is a valid lifetime memory accounting for that life’s experience of its Overleaves as parallel to this life. The women, as we see it, were all the selves from past incarnations and future sharing the same Goal. That life is the pivotal advisor for the “best” expression of the Goal. [Sandra51] Personal Questions… Nemo999 [nemo999] Thanks, how can I let go of negativity [Michael_Entity] You cannot. We would rarely say something that appears so condemning, but it is a truth in your universe that it must be explored as a path to what you might call your “positivity”. What you call “negativity” presently are simply judgments on the process. You are merely EXPERIENCING. If there is resistance to experience, “negativity” results. In your case, we suggest you listen carefully to feedback. There is little listening happening in your life, only sensitivity and defense. Remind yourself that you are safe, if you wish to hear your world’s answers to freedom. [nemo999] How then can I see that I am safe? [Michael_Entity] By choosing to see through your own eyes. Someone else taught you to feel insecure and vulnerable. That was their truth, not yours. This month may be your month to turn that around. It is no longer necessary to pay homage to another’s idea of you. In every instance, stop to determine if you feel ‘safe’. If you do not feel safe, DECIDE to feel safe in your decision, even if not completely convinced. It is a start. [Azure362] My back has spasmed out like it used to do over 20 years ago. This seems to be a “repeat” lesson of sorts or is it a truth I am resisting, or shedding, or what? [Michael_Entity] It's simply an old truth revisited. It is not a repeat lesson. It is one you never realized you “kept around” for good measure. It has always lurked in your background as a means for “excuse” if needed. You have determined that it is no longer valid through your revisiting. It will pass, if we are correct in our perception. Your intake of water will help on the physical level. This is in relation to your material world, security issues and finances. It is time for you to rest assured you are safe on that level. [Luna2ne] What is my brother’s family Ikon? What is my family Ikon? [Michael_Entity] Brother: “the extravagant” You: “the Satellite” We do not profess that this is accurate as we would need to focus more on you directly. This might be only a facet of the Ikon. [TCB] Septant configuration. What are we doing, life task work? Can you elaborate just a bit? [Michael_Entity] Yes, only slightly; conscious validation of essence contact seems to be the task, or part of it. Again, we are limited in this context for deeper explorations. Again, this is a start. We will now conclude. Goodnight.
  15. May 20, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Soul Age and Centers [Michael_Entity] We are here… one moment. We spoke last session about those following two weeks being an opportunity for most of you Older Souls to get a sense of your True Soul ages. This did not mean it would remain nor that you were to maintain this event; that would be your choice. What we would suggest however is to examine the past couple of weeks, looking for the symptoms we described in the last session, using this as a gauge or compass, a centering, for returning to your own True Soul Age when required or chosen. It is not the goal, by the way, to retain, or maintain your Soul Age perspective, but rather to be able to draw from all Soul Age perspectives you have encountered up to this point. It is limiting yourself and your life when struggling to sustain one perspective. This aspect of Soul Age has been highly misunderstood by many of our students. This misunderstanding does not, however, negate your choice to have this as a challenge to maintain. The average Soul Ages of those involved with us, especially in this room, do not have a circle of Older Souls with which to seriously maintain their True Soul Age, therefore it is valid to “manifest” at Soul Ages other than your “technical” Soul Age. What becomes the task is in the ability to shift to your own True Soul Age when the occasion arises. When the opportunity arises for Older Souls to manifest their Soul Ages, we rarely see this opportunity accepted, or utilized. What we see, instead, could be referred to “affectionately” as “codginess”. Older Souls in the vicinity of other Older Souls, whether in Internet world or physically, tend to be suspicious. This stems from a very personal and definitive journey of which each of you as Essence and Personality have become the culmination. As your Soul Age progresses you realize the nature of trust in yourself, trust in your Source. In that complete trust (usually gained after a very trying Mature Soul cycle/level) you become “suspicious” of other Older Souls and their perspectives, since they tend to have minor details abrasive with your own discoveries. When we say “suspicious” we do not mean this literally, though sometimes it can certainly show up literally. A more accurate picture is the image of several “old geezers” sitting on the porch, bickering about the “old days”. This is a contemporary image and one that is relevant at this point. We are not trying to be humorous. It is in this critiquing and heightened scrutiny of the other Older Souls, that you might learn is a clue for your realization that you have stumbled into your own True Soul Age perspective opportunity. Once you have gained this conscious “photograph” of the moment, you may then choose either pole of your Soul Age. For the Old Souls this would be: positive pole=INCLUSIVE, negative pole EXCLUSIVE. For the Mature Souls this would be the positive pole of PERCEPTION, the negative pole of PROJECTION. You may use these poles to determine whether you have distanced yourself from an opportunity for Essence Contact and Recognition, or if you have taken steps to truly SEE or INCLUDE “other”. We speak of this for a reason. We do not randomly discuss events or topics, unless directed to do so through questioning. Upon review of your last couple of weeks, you will realize that enabling your Soul Age perspective to manifest, when it normally is reserved or monitored, tends to free up a tremendous amount of energy normally expended on time and space. In this freeing up of energy the body can experience this as a “high”, ending with a “crash”. This period of time discussed is not the only time this happens in your lives, but this month seems to be geared collectively toward generating a conscious opportunity to choose your perspectives more freely without guilt or fear. In the weeks ahead, another burst of energy will be released, but not from within, as in the past two weeks. In the weeks past, each of you freed up energy through your decision to see the world through your “own eyes”. This can be unsettling or confusing to the Personality, while simultaneously ecstatic to the soul. For those we speak to, this happened “from within”. This means the world “outside” may or may not have appeared to “keep up” with you. In that experience, you can see why you choose to remain more monitored and discreet in your perspectives. The energy and average Soul Age Perspective of the planet does not necessarily accommodate your levels of potential experience, at least at this point. In the weeks ahead, this surge of energy will be more global and external. You will see a surge from the planet stimulating the Higher Moving Center in events and people. This is a specific burst, different from what you experienced in the past weeks. In the past weeks, this freeing of energy was primarily affecting the lower centers, but affecting them all in some way, lending balance. This was still a result of your Higher Moving Energy, but from within, and funneled specifically. In the next couple of weeks your Higher Moving Center is stimulated specifically, but from external sources. The rest of the world will have an experience of this as well, if they choose. This means: what you experienced over the beginning of this month is now having a potential opportunity synchronize with external world events. This means as Older Souls you may feel detached and free from what seems to be happening, rather than affected. It is your opportunity to not only experience the freedom within (as you choose your True Perspectives at will) but to experience that sharing with other Older Souls without conflict. This Higher Moving Centered flux will most likely be a turning point for certain world events, and you, as Personalities and Essences, can observe in delight. We are open to questions about the “weather forecast” at this point, then we’ll move into an open floor forum. [bn] How do you see the increase in energy in the Higher Moving Center as affecting the Kosovo conflict? [Michael_Entity] This will most likely be a decompression of the situation or a major acceleration to a larger circle of conflict. At this point, it is fairly equal in percentages for probability. [K1] How does being in 4th Internal Monad affect the perception of soul age at this time? [Michael_Entity] The Fourth Internal Monad is another context entirely for determining Soul Age manifestation. When progressing through your Soul Ages and returning to your True Soul Age Perspective within the life, perception is challenged or evolved at the Internal Monad markers. The Soul Age in the context of the Body/Essence alignment is measured by these rites of passage. What we are referring to, in terms of your opportunity to manifest your Soul Age perspective, is an approach from a different angle, a different context. One is measured by the progression of the body through the physical life, while the other is measured by the psyche’s evolution within the life. This is why a toddler can appear to be an “old soul” even though this fragment has obviously not progressed through the Fourth Internal Monad. Soul Age manifestation has not been fully explored through our channels and what has become a standard reference is but one facet, the Personality’s experience. This is relative to Life Tasks and physicality. Tonight, we speak of the psyche’s experience. We are finished with our response, unless this did not clarify. [Jn] Any suggestion for those of us who are in Intellectual/emotional part or Emotional/intellectual part on how to access and utilize the Higher Moving Center energy? [Michael_Entity] You will not need to “access” it in those terms. Instead, it will more accurately “access” you. When this occurs, it is a question of how you choose to funnel this energy through the body and life. Higher Moving Centered energy is pervasive. In the case you described, it is in the PART, the secondary centering that the successful or challenged movement of this energy will be seen. Regardless of your Centering, the PARTS hold the controls here. Intellectual PARTS will respond negatively with “reasons” to deny impulses, and positively with insight as to what choices can be made in this “rush”. Emotional PARTS will respond with potential depression or anxiety, while in the positive, respond with joy, unadulterated and guilt-free joy. Moving PARTS will respond negatively with agitation, hyperactivity, frenetic bursts, and sexual frustration, or positively with a sensual and graceful recognition of the body in relation to the environment. The response to this question is highly simplified, but should act as an accurate parameter to begin. next [he] Does this energy have anything to do with the sunspot activities? [Michael_Entity] Contrarily, sunspot activity is another result of Higher Moving Energy surges. The Higher Moving Centers are rarely accessed from what might be termed an external activation or attempt. Instead, it MOVES through everything, and depending on many factors, what is MOVED through, moves too. The Higher Moving Center is Oneness, ultimately. It is the difference between standing in a stream of rushing water, struggling for balance, or flowing. next [bn] Michael said, “…sunspot activity is another result of Higher Moving Energy surges.” Does this mean that since the sunspot activity is cyclical in nature (11-year sun spot cycle), then so is the Higher Moving energy surges including the other Higher centers? [Michael_Entity] We will clarify by asking if you are wondering if there are other indicators of other Higher Center surges manifested similarly. Is this correct, Bn? [bn] I was wondering if surges in energy in each Higher center is cyclical and have indicators (like the increased sunspot activity) [Michael_Entity] In that case, no, not so clearly… we will elaborate: Sunspot activity is a result of Higher Center surges, but the cycles of that surging, as currently understood, is relative to the Sun, itself. The Sunspot activity that affects your own planet in discernible ways, is more a result of your own Higher Moving Center fluxes, relative to your own planet. In other words, at times when these sunspots and solar flares (we include this as well) affect your planet, it is most likely relative to a Higher Moving Center surge being experienced on Earth. [bn] Are there physical or visible indicators of surges in the other Higher Centers? [Michael_Entity] Other indications of these surges in the Higher Moving Center are sexuality issues, transcendence of physical connections and contacts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions. The Higher Emotional Center brings more upsurges in floods and rain, new star and planet discoveries, and astronomical events are highlighted. Higher Intellectual surges bring more spiritual revolutions, tornadoes, and droughts. Again, we realize this is a limited forum and are responding in a fashion that is limited as well. This question’s response is grand in scope. We will address it when asked again, in a more appropriate format. Next question, if any? [Le] Will this Higher Moving Energy surge be felt on this planet only or on other planets as well? [Michael_Entity] The universe you presently recognize as your own will experience this collectively. It is through the individual and collective consciousness of a planet and its inhabitants that it becomes relative. For instance, we doubt the planet you call PLUTO will be responding. The more sentience sharing a planet, the more likely the meaningful response. next [Jn] Are there similar surges or cycles for Higher Intellectual or Higher Emotional in the past? Are they more prominent in sapiens only, or the whole planet in general? [Michael_Entity] There are Cycles which we will have to delve into at another point, but here we will say that it is not a simple circular event. Instead, what you experience, and what we refer to, is the meeting points of several cycles. For example, the Higher Moving Center surge in the next couple of weeks, particularly around the last weekend, is the “overlapping” of a larger Moving Centered Cycle and Intellectual Cycle and Higher Emotional. We will share how this manifests or can be calculated at a different session, if it is of interest. It is predictable to a large extent. As for whether it is more prominent in sapiens: the answer is no. It is completely subjective. Your own Frequencies help determine what part of the spectrum of Higher Moving energy you tap into, from positive pole to negative. We will discuss this next month. Next. [bn] Since we are not subjected to many of the barriers of false personality while we are asleep, will the increase in Higher Moving Centered energy cause our dreams to be affected more than ordinary? [Michael_Entity] It is not necessarily true that you are not subjected to “the barriers of false personality” while sleeping. It is a common event to remain entirely within your waking contexts, even when astrally focused or out of body. The CONTENTS you use as symbols change, not necessarily the CONTEXT of the perceptions. Nevertheless, yes, your dreams become potentially more important. We say, “important” as this is usually a time of prosperity-creation and setting sequences into motion, seeking Agreements, etc. The next couple of weeks should prove interesting in terms of strikingly meaningful symbolism and dream events directly relevant to waking state. In fact, it is the task of a few of you here to have some turning points purely generated while asleep this week. June will bring the manifestation of these events (Agreements, etc.) into waking state, if chosen. We will close here, taking the last question now. [a5] My Grandmother has Alzheimers…Is she content? Where is Essence and Personality when a person has this condition? [Michael_Entity] The Essence has disengaged from the body at this point, though still care taking. Alzheimer’s is the choice of individuals who choose to re-experience the first seven years of life as the first seven years of life may have not been assimilated properly. Essence does not “move in” to the Body fully for several years after birth, usually after 7 years, in general. Those with Alzheimer’s have freed the body from any time references, and most space references, similar to a child. This is usually chosen in fragments who were “forced into” their bodies at an early age, before what would have normally been chosen. [a5] Disengaged? Clarify? [Michael_Entity] When we say “disengaged”, we mean the life is already in review. This does not, however, mean that it is “done”. [a5] Since she is older (85) this makes a lot of sense. She seems happy. [Michael_Entity] Whether this “illness” is seen as traumatic for those surrounding the fragment is not the concern of Essence who chooses this. In most cases, the event is ecstatic and playful. Those who choose this are experiencing some of their first validations of afterlife without stereotypes and imprinting as a gateway. We will close here… Good night to you all
  16. March 4, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Dreams and Symbols 1 of 3 [Michael_Entity] Hello everyone. We are here. We'll start off with the weather forecast as usual and comment on your shared exploration of symbols on your discussion lists today. We had mentioned in our last couple of interactions that some of you were looking to ANIMALS as symbols for where you were heading in your exploration of probable futures. It is clear that many of you partaking in the discussions today on your lists will be moving further into your EXTERNAL worlds and lending your presence to actions required there. The symbolism in your debate and exchange over where animals stand in terms of rights was obviously not the level of discussion occurring for yourselves internally, with your own Essences, but rather gauging where you individually stand with how much you are willing to give OUTWARDLY this year. Your debate was symbolic. It is a difficult and enticing potential decision to be making yourselves available for outward interaction when you have mostly, for the past couple of years, (and some of you for the past four or five years), have been INWARDLY healing and improving. This period of time where your symbols showed up and where your reactions stood individually, brings up some very personal and deeply touched issues that have “just” been “healed” to a degree. What we mean by this is that any of you interacting with ANIMALS as symbols over the past few weeks, where animals were in dreams, or as in today's exchange in heated discussion, essence has suggested through these symbols that you might be “ready” to “go back out there”. Many of you have been bored with your EXTERNAL worlds giving intensity and focused lessons in your INTERPERSONAL worlds. Though interpersonal relationships are far from being completed in terms of lessons, it is a period of time currently where many Older Souls are being called outwardly to be present in the world for more impact. We will say this: As the exploration of symbols comes to a close sometime into next week, we have seen those of you who have brought ANIMALS to the forefront of your symbolism each having some sort of Teacher/Student Agreements unfolding. We would suggest you trust your inclinations to “reach out” to those who ask. Finally, March 12 through 14 appear to be pivotal days for most you gathered here. This is the overall window for your finalizing your decisions on an Essence and Personality level for: 1. How available you will be, 2. In what capacity you will be available, 3. For what length of time you will be willing to take focus off of your personal lives. QUESTIONS? [k1] There are five us joining to gather on the internet to connect. Can you give us some advice on what the first focus might be? This is a regular committed group of students. [Michael_Entity] It appears to us that you have already decided that focus, which could be called “collective intuitive exposure”. Each of you are exposing to what capacity you are capable of intuitive EXPRESSION and RECEPTION, some of you will be receiving, while others EXPRESSING. Specifically we see 2 of you as expressing data that has been collected during your individual pursuits, while 3 of you are receiving, either through the 2 expressing or through their own heightened levels of development in your gatherings. TOPIC: Dreams & Symbols Dreams have become highlighted again, and usually are, during Parallel Shifts. This is one way with which to explore all of your options as ESSENCE and including Personality. When one enters into Dream State, it is almost always entered through the Instinctive Center. The Instinctive Center acts as a mediating ground for determining what is to be experienced while the body is resting. There are THREE levels or planes of Dreaming. Symbolic/Instinctive Astral/Lower Centers Out Of Body/Higher Centers Depending on the nature of the Waking State prior to sleeping, you will enter Instinctive Center, assimilate or evaluate your experiences, and move on to either Astral or Out Of Body. We will address the Symbolic Level first: It is easily determined when in the Symbolic level because there are simply SYMBOLS everywhere. This is the level where most find quite elaborate fantastical worlds and strange interactions and props. While in this level, simple concerns of the day or registered events not consciously noted are brought to light and processed, stored. This is also where all of your Sub personalities interact and exchange their perceptions of events. All of the symbols experienced here MEAN SOMETHING, but it is only through individual analysis that one can truly determine their meaning. We will note here that if one were to never discover the meanings of their internal symbols nothing would be lost except conscious interaction between inner and outer domains; it is certainly not NECESSARY to know the meanings of symbols in your dreams. Why we share this information with our Students is simply because many of you are in a place where “inner” and “outer” are closer together, therefore knowledge gained in one area means breakthrough on many levels. To move on: While in the Instinctive Center or Symbolic Level, depending on your particular Centering or Center “worked” that day, you will then move FROM the Symbolic through, for instance, the Emotional PART of the Instinctive Center. To elaborate then, the Instinctive Level or Symbolic Level would then have 7 “doors” through which to move. The most fantastical and indecipherable dreams are from the Instinctive PART of the Instinctive Center. You have remained in pure symbolism. This is helpful for processing experiences carried over from past lives, and certain parts of early life THIS lifetime. This is also the level with which many gain lucidity and claim Astral Projection, warning of dangers and fearful domains. This is due to the pure experience of Instinctive/Symbolic exploration while in a conscious state. Now the next level, the ASTRAL level, is where most of you go next. This is simply where you make your Agreements, learn from each other, play out Karma not requiring Physical presence, etc. The Astral Level is extremely fluid and still utilizes symbols (all levels do to a certain extent) and it is easily determined you have “been there” if upon rising you literally FEEL like you have “gone somewhere”. This is truly the realm of Essence. Where the Symbolic Level is about Personality and its Sub personalities, the ASTRAL is about Essence and its Personalities. We will move quickly to the next level, realizing again the constraints of your time. In rare designs of Personality and under certain conditions, Out Of Body experiences occur. This is able to occur since upon leaving the Symbolic, the consciousness moves through one of the Higher Centers. In this instance, literally, Essence AND Personality fuse and are able to sustain the Etheric Body in such a way as to remain within the Physical Plane without the constraints of a Physical reference. A fusion of energies rather rare within this time period of your species is experienced in this event. A more recent and not uncommon bridging of acceptance toward this level of dreaming is in Near Death Experiences. This is merely the scratched surface of this topic, but we will take questions now in regard to the topic. QUESTIONS. [M6] I dreamed I was with this chat group at a party in a beautiful and old apartment building. I felt I knew everyone and was excited to arrive. I had a specific task relating to a specific person. What level was this dream, and what did it signify about our relationships and work together? [Michael_Entity] Although we have not elaborated on the more specific levels, this would be, from our perspective, the Astral, of course, and Intellectual Substrate. The significance would be an angle with which you need to explore. This dream is incomplete in its exploration. We see this as a sequential dream. [Note from Otterly [aka Troy Tolley]: I hadn't heard of this before and will be getting more on it. We will be continuing this topic at the next meeting]. [El] I just wanted to ask how one can remember the astral work? [Michael_Entity] The dream experts are correct. Upon rising, a simple noting of certain memories from dreaming, even if vague, is the most effective route toward Conscious Recall. When looking over your notes it is also an extended exercise for the conscious waking self to fill in the gaps with imagined experiences. This means, if you can't remember what ACTUALLY occurred, it is not amiss to pull up creative ideas based on what you wrote, drawing still from your unconscious/dreaming self. Be creative. [Jn] I have some rather similar dreams where I am in familiar places (in dreams, not in physical) and met with familiar people. Are these dreams contacts from entity mates? Are we meeting for our entity task? BTW, what's my entity task? [Michael_Entity] Many of these contacts, in your case, as we see it are more than your Entity Mates, they are your Essence's manifestations through time; past life selves. You are in a lifetime where gathering knowledge from a multitude of similar selves across time is a regular resource for your present self. So this is more of an element of Essence Task not necessarily an Entity Task although they are linked. The Task of your Essence (or one of your Personal Life Tasks) then would be “gathering personal definitions of strength through recollected knowledge”. [Mn] To which level would you liken Jung’s archetypes of the collective unconscious? And can you say anything about following his methods of dream interpretation, or is it better to devise your own? [Michael_Entity] Archetypes are Waking State Symbols. We have not covered this yet here. Though they DO spring from the Astral Collective ideas (or Unconscious Collective), they are still an outward manifestation. We will cover waking state symbols in our next exchange, and the levels involved. As far as Jung's method of dream interpretation, we find it heavily flawed in that it negates the individual to a great degree. There were clues here to levels of information about Collective Unconscious/Astral Collective, but to apply it to dream ANALYSIS moves one in a direction where his theories are less workable. [a1] On what level does lucid dreaming occur? [Michael_Entity] ALL levels. It can occur on any level. Lucid Dreaming is an umbrella term. To be LUCID simply means you are conscious while on the level of dreaming being experienced. There are levels in which it is more difficult to attain this state, particularly the Instinctive PART of the Instinctive Center. Although, ironically, this is the first level to gain notoriety for lucidity due to its bizarre landscapes. [fg] I've had many dreaming experiences, some of which I thought were conscious out of body experiences. From what was said here they seem on the other hand to be rare. Last night I had such a dream. Have these dreams I'm speaking of not been conscious OOB? Is it a case of just being lucid astrally speaking? [Michael_Entity] You are correct. Lucid Astral Dreaming is most often mistaken for Out Of Body. We will say that Lucid Astral Dreaming seems to the be the popular chosen route as a “springboard” for OOBEs. The experiences on the Astral, while lucid, gives the Personality some stability in its preparation for completely disengaging from Body. It does require extremely heightened consciousness to sustain the Etheric body while moving through the Physical Plane, or heavily sustained injuries “knocking” the Etheric out of the body, Personality intact. Note we did not say you have not had an OOBE, in fact you have. It is through your studies and examinations of the minute differences between the ASTRAL and your OOBE that you will then be able to maintain an “open door” out of the body, if you wish. [s5] Bridging of Acceptance and death scapes, how are these two subjects intertwined? Where does one's own creativity intrude? [Michael_Entity] If you are referring to our information about Near Death Experiences being a bridge to acceptance of “natural” OOBE, this is simply because your species has chosen to take this route of exposure for this realm. Those sharing their experiences are in a position of influence on a “grass roots” level. Though many contributing to this phenomenon are Late Baby Souls, they are nonetheless contributing to the acceptability of “something” valid in terms of consciousness beyond the body. [s5] I am just trying to understand which is which? [Michael_Entity] S, ‘which is which’? [s5] What is created vs what is real? Or once created does it become real? [Michael_Entity] The reason for your confusion comes from the fact that there is no defining boundary. That is why a valid form of dream recollection is to “make up” the parts you do not remember upon waking. We will take another question, then complete the session. [ha] Back to the OOBE line; I had an unusual experience where I felt like I was lying on top of myself, what would this indicate—OOB or lucid dreaming? Or something other? [Michael_Entity] This is the beginning of OOBE. You are becoming lucid “too quickly”, drawing yourself “back into” the body. [ha] Yes, I totally understand. I'm of two minds about whether to go or not. [Michael_Entity] We will share more of the details of these levels of dreaming for Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] to put on his web site. We can continue in our next exchange. We will close the session now. Good night. ### end of session This topic continues in Michael Speaks -- Dreams and Symbols (Part 2 of 3)
  17. February 4, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [FIRST CHAT!] [Michael_Entity] Ok, here we go… Hello everyone… What we'll do is start with the basic “weather forecast” as some of your are used to, and for those who are not, relax, absorb, and explore later… We have set aside some time with Otterly [aka Troy Tolley] for New Students in the weeks ahead and hope to make more of you feel welcome in the Teachings… It looks like more than half of you here are fairly new to the Teachings, at least in terms of our Terminology and application, so we will consider this as we move along… The next few weeks are going to be some of the “best” few weeks experienced this year for most of you Older Souls as you move closer to INDIVIDUAL parallel shifts. This simply means that each of you are projecting aspects of your selves into potential future probabilities. As you do this, a sense of confusion or elation can occur. What we see is most of you leaning toward elation since it is time for a grand clearing away of energies that you have found resolutions for but have been hesitant to release. Over the next couple of weeks you will begin to feel a mild to overwhelming surge of uplifting energy. Your environment will become exceedingly relevant in terms of your internal reflections. What happens OUTSIDE of you over the next couple of weeks gives you clues as to how you are processing your shift. This year is about coming OUT of yourselves, being IN the world,… this next few weeks you will begin to see how this will manifest for you. For you Mature Souls, this will show up primarily as recognizing where you are “significant”. It has been a while since you were actually able to see “positive” feedback from your expressions, but you will begin to find your interactions actually SOUGHT. For you OLDER SOULS,… more world events will be in synch with your own internal pictures [of what could be]. This next year could easily be said to be the FIRST year of experimentation with complete MATURE SOUL consciousness permeating all activities.. even through Baby and Young. ALL will be moving through this field of Inspirational Energy over the next weeks, lifting you to a place where you AND your Essence will be making choices as to how you want to handle this. In particular for Old Souls, animals will be highlighted as you seek your future probabilities. [They may show up] in dreams, in reality, [or] in repetitive symbology around you. MATURE SOULS will seem to apparently highlight PEOPLE in terms of specifically categorized people such as [the] Mentally, Physically challenged, [the] racially or sexually rejected and highlighted folks. Whether in ANIMAL or HUMAN form, whether a MATURE or OLD soul, it is important to recognize [these symbols] when they “stand out”. The ACTUAL nexus period for your Individual shifts won't really begin until late Feb, early March, but these next two to three weeks will seem like “christmas” to the soul in terms of selecting futures. Ok, before we continue… we will take a few questions…. [LE] So how can we work with our essence to chose a future direction? [Michael_Entity] This happens by default… you [as Personality] are never truly disengaged from the process, but here are some things we might suggest: Each moment, of course, is selected from a myriad of probabilities, but when we speak of Parallel Shifts, we are speaking of major shifts that “spin off” relatively NEW realities, not just minor alterations. In this particular shift, you will, according to your reactions to elements highlighted within your EXTERNAL reality, gain clues as to how you will move forward. As we mentioned before, ANIMALS and specifically categorized/challenged people are the symbols for this shift. This means if you find yourself approached in some form over the next few weeks with one of these symbols, your interaction/reaction “tells” how “into it” you are; how willing, at least, THIS version of you would be to SERVICE (which is where most of the energy lies this year). If you “catch” yourself responding with little attention, or have no symbols highlighted, or find yourself BOTHERED, it will be apparent that your future probabilities are still going to be centered on work internally and individually. Little will occur in terms of a shift [for these individuals]. We do not imply that one or the other is more or less preferable, but rather that these symbols will help our Students gain clarity of consciousness in their interaction with Essence and reality [choices] that are normally not as evident. Did this help answer your question LE? [LE] Yes, Thank you. [Michael_Entity] We have only a short while left and being an experiment with you all through this channel, at least, we feel it might be a “treat” for you all to consider any questions, rather than a topic. This, in fact, is part of the experience of the “weather” for most of you as well over the next few weeks; that there seems to be a “break” in your “lessons”, a respite. Though it is, of course, your choice, we would suggest ALL of you take a day or two to be OUTSIDE before the end of this month. There are many messages “out there” for you to grab… Ok, questions… [S5] I had read in earlier channeling where you said the fragment Adolf Hitler was born a Jew in Israel in 1962 and that it would be a short life. I was wondering whatever became of that life and how it would pertain to burning karmic ribbons incurred? [Michael_Entity] This Fragment managed little in balancing Karma that life, since it was essentially to “take a break”… We do not see this fragment extant any longer. Though it may not “make sense” in light of the activities and Karma accumulated in the lifetime as Hitler, it is still all simply experience. Therefore, it is not essential to repay Karma in a “quick” manner. In fact, most involved with this fragment and his Karma are staying many lifetimes “away” from this fragment until more has been processed within themselves and their own “families”. [S99] A philosopher is asking the question: What is it to be an I? Why would someone ask this question, and is there an answer from your perspective? [Michael_Entity] This is another attempt within the Human Context to make complexities out of simplicity. There is value in asking this question and this event has done more to spark this question for OTHERS than it will accomplish as an experiment in and of itself. Why someone would ask this…? We all ask this at some point. It just doesn't usually come with a financial grant. On a minor level this fragment stands more for the “permission” to ask this than anything. [SR] I'm having a sensation of a “cord” attached to my crown and there's another sensation in my scull cap is this me being “connected” tonight or just eye strain? I feel like I've got stage fright. [Michael_Entity] S, this is the combination of all those elements you described. It is a state of Vulnerability as well as Empathy… [SR] I'm amazed at how “subtle” the “deeper levels of mind are to the “psychic”. [Michael_Entity] It is a strange experience to be SEEN in ways that are non-linear and, as well, you sense most of the energies that are moving through this interaction. We would venture to say that a few of you are in this similar state. [K1] Could you offer any specific exercises to help me “get out of the way” and not judge what comes out when I am attempting to channel? [Michael_Entity] Note: we are aware we will not be able to address your questions with any “real” impact, but take these excerpts as points of reference rather than an answer. First, K1, we would suggest asking if the method of channeling you are exploring is actually your forte… then… [K1] good point [Michael_Entity] …upon evaluating and trusting your response, your next most limiting experience might be the “scripting” of what is to “happen”. Many methods and expression of channeling have come to light in the media, but this format is only a small percentage of what the spectrum of channeling actually is. We will work with you… [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”. We can have this as a topic on your lists of suggestions for the future if you choose… [S51] O.K. has this group met-up on the astral plane? [Michael_Entity] Yes,… [S51] I thought so, Thanx [Michael_Entity] In the weeks prior to this event and in the weeks continuing, most of you will “gather” and study. What most of you will see in dream state is each other in symbolic form, an ACTIVE but elusive group of figures mostly. Another topic worth exploring in depth. [LE] I know it is possible to wake from a conscious astral experience (AKA lucid dream) into an out of body experience. Keeping the conscious mind awake has a considerable amount to do with this right? I.E., the degree to which the conscious mind is awake. [Michael_Entity] “Conscious Dreaming” in its many layers and forms is not something that is easily manipulated. In fact, the more a person tends to “practice”, the more elusive this state becomes, much like gripping sand. One of the most effective entrances to Lucid Dreaming has always been through more of a KNOWING than through “techniques”. [LE] Yes. Most of my haven been spontaneous just because of the desire and that I “knew” the do happen. [Michael_Entity] “Keeping the conscious mind awake” (we are assuming through various techniques) moves you more into a state of anxiety and Instinctive reaction than into a Higher Centered realm. The reason techniques have proven successful in many instances is [because] once the Instinctive Center has made the “jump”, you can literally be INSIDE your own Akashic Record (your Instinctive Center Reality). This is why many books have been written about the “dangers” of the Astral; it is simply Instinctive Fears and realities manifesting “willy nilly”. [a5] Does a fragment lose some of it's ET’s essence if the ET is incarnate? [Michael_Entity] In what way are you referring to the “loss of Essence”? [a5] I'm Server/Sage, my ET is my son. I'm more Server than ever now. Is this because he is incarnate, or my duties as a mom ;). [Michael_Entity] We understand. Obviously this will be a combination of factors you described, but we see that you have found a place that actually RECIPROCATES your energy in your son, your ET. That is part of your on-going lesson, actually: Recognizing WHERE your energy and actions actually are “useful” and utilized, rather than being exploited or “serving” just to serve. Another factor, a5, in the experience of being more “SERVER than ever” is that you literally are. You are manifesting higher degrees of Essence through your body and into your world. You are more in alignment with Essence now than before your “mirror” (your ET) allowed you to see the value in your expression. ok… we will see you all at later chats. Before we go, we will remind you of your own status as our teachers. We do not engage in this activity as a one-way adventure. And with that… we will head out.

    Ask Michael - June 7, 2015

    Ask Michael – Open Floor June 7, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley 12:24:05 PM PeterK: Does positive thinking manifest a positive reality? If so, what is the process or mechanism by which this occurs? MEntity: There is validity to the power of "positive" thinking, but only insofar as that positivity is inclusive, and not exclusive. If "positive" thinking is exclusionary, then it is often merely a delusional tactic to avoid unpleasant elements of the life. MEntity: To be truly "positive," one must embrace the "negative." MEntity: If one is struggling with a terminal illness, it can be most powerful to enlist a positive attitude, but not as a means to escape the reality of the struggle, but to add strength to the very real struggle that may be involved. MEntity: To understand the way that true positive thinking would work is to understand the difference between closing one's eyes to hide from the darkness, and letting one's eyes adjust so that one can see better in the darkness. MEntity: True Positivity is aimed at SEEING, FEELING, and THINKING more, not less. MEntity: When one aims for True Positivity, then one can navigate more to one's benefit. MEntity: Another way to understand True Positivity vs false positivity/escape is to understand that every great meal will be met with the necessity for defecation. One does not avoid eating just to avoid defecation, and if one does so, one is killing the self. MEntity: There are many examples we can give, but we think these help to clarify the benefit of positive thinking vs "positive thinking." 12:36:18 PM ViP: Can you give a brief description of how breathing affects the processes of the brain, mind, and any other part of the body that affects thinking? ViP: Many meditative practices, as well as hatha yoga, emphasize breath control to a great degree and I wanted to understand how this functions better, if you could give a brief description of it. MEntity: Breathing is an automated function that one does not have to monitor as a means to survive. This is true of many functions of the body. MEntity: However, of all the biological functions that one runs automatically, it is one of only a few that can most immediately be measured, monitored, and brought to your awareness. MEntity: It does not require machinery to provide feedback, or a long-term monitoring process to see effects from more mindful control. MEntity: One does not have to depend upon one's status, income, or state of health for access to this function. MEntity: Yes, health can interfere with this function, but unless one is not breathing at all, or completely unconscious, it is still very likely in one's control to some degree. MEntity: This is why this biological function was found to be most effective in helping to bring consciousness to a subconscious process. MEntity: When one takes a simple function that is so vital to one's life and brings to it an awareness and presence, it can bring that same awareness and presence to other areas of the life that have come to be automated and subconscious, or even unconscious. MEntity: Of course, there is also the benefit of oxygen that comes with breathing, and the more one brings this food to the body, the better it can function. The better the body functions, the better the platform for the consciousness. MEntity: Diet and Breathing are two immediate powers one has in making deeply profound changes to the platform that is available for consciousness in a lifetime. The more one brings conscious awareness to either of these, or both of these, as a practice (not as a replacement for automation), the greater the benefit to the strength of platform for consciousness. MEntity: When we say "as a practice" we mean that one does not want to worry about breathing only when you think to breathe. You still want it to be a function that happens with or without your conscious attention. You do not want to starve because you forget to eat, either. But allowing these functions to have some amount of conscious awareness as a part of your day, such as a few deep breaths at the beginning, middle, and end of your day, or making more conscious choices in food intake, allows you to bring greater consciousness to many areas of the life. 12:52:21 PM Janet: When I asked you about a dream I had involving sycamore trees, you told me that some symbols are ancient to the Instinctive Center, and they come up as a language in dreams. I've noticed that a number of students (including myself) have reported dreams involving turtles. Are turtles one of those ancient symbols and, in general, what do they mean? MEntity: The "Turtle" refers to the original move to Earth. This was one of the first creatures to have persistent contact with those who began stabilizing and wandering about. Variations of the Turtle have been in existence previous to our arrival and continue into modern day with very little variation. Over time, this came to represent Earth, our new home. MEntity: Not only were these creatures friendly, but came to symbolize successful stabilization as both a species and individual lives. MEntity: There was a period of time very early on when individuals would go through a simple kind of initiation or ritual that included bonding with the Turtle as a way to say, in so many words, "We think we/you will make it." MEntity: In other words, if you lived long enough, your stability was associated with that of the Turtle as a kind of celebration. MEntity: Over time, many variations of meaning have come to be attributed to the Turtle, but the persistence of the Turtle as representing the consciousness of Earth or the universe that hosts Earth has continued. Janet: That image/idea of the earth actually being on the back of a turtle comes to mind. MEntity: On an individual level, the Turtle can symbolize endurance, innocent persistence without aggression or defense, and passive patience. MEntity: Yes, that is related. 01:07:38 PM BrianW: Hi Michael. Could you comment on differences and similarities of intimacy in monogamous relationships vs polyamorous relationship? MEntity: Most of those differences would be up to the individuals involved. Intimacy for one person can be sustained with only one person while another can sustain intimacy with up to 3. No fragment can tend to manage intimacy with more than 3 others at any given time. MEntity: For most, there is a limit to the number with whom one can sustain intimacy, and it rarely reaches 3 for most. MEntity: What tends to happen is that there is that inner circle of intimacy with whom one can sustain depth of intimacy, and if another were added beyond that, then someone would be moved out to another ring. BrianW: How might one choose which is best for them, or how to make it work? MEntity: Experimentation can help you decide if this involves mutual, sexual intimacy. If all involved can know all involved, then it can work. If you must juggle and sustain barriers among those within that inner circle of intimacy, then it is not working and is likely not an inner circle of intimacy. MEntity: Most who lean toward polyamory use the 2nd Circle/Ring for their management of intimacy, rotating one to three individuals in and out from that inner circle to an outer circle. MEntity: The 2nd Circle can manage up to 7 intimate relationships, so a part of that pool may be sexual in nature. BrianW: And the 1st Circle only up to 3 intimate relationships? MEntity: Yes, at most. The Personality simply cannot sustain more than that, and this includes non-sexual intimacy, as well. 01:22:34 PM DianeHB: Hi Michael, could you talk about how the Pragmatist appears/acts in social situations? MEntity: The Pragmatist in the Positive Pole can show up as attentive, quiet, and observing of how others are maneuvering, behaving, functioning, and producing, offering insight, feedback, and direction only as necessary or as beneficial to the dynamic. MEntity: The Pragmatist in the Negative Pole is your micro-manager, your "nit-picking" and badgering presence, either in obvious ways or in passive-aggressive ways that are not productive, but tend to actually undermine efficiency. By "efficiency" here we mean that an intended effect is lost in favor of the feeding dogma. MEntity: Because Pragmatists can be using any other Attitude, this benefit or undermining can come in the guise of any other Attitude. Many Negative Pole Pragmatists are known to say something along the lines of "I'm just being truthful." MEntity: This is not limited to Pragmatists, because all other Attitudes can also access the Pragmatist. An Idealist can express the same if he's using Dogma, for example. However, most other Attitudes do tend to stay on their own Axis and not involve Pragmatism. MEntity: As usual, the above is highly simplistic and not indicative of the complexities of a human being, but it can be helpful in understanding the dynamic of a trait. 01:36:36 PM Kurt: Hi Michael, I'd like to continue with my series of questions. This time on how the Skeptic appears/acts in social situations. MEntity: The Positive Pole Skeptic is curious, even if presented with surprising, challenging, or discrepant information, behaviors, or expressions. The Skeptic understands Expression and relies on it for gathering information with which she can then sort. MEntity: The Positive Pole Skeptic would rather know than not to know, so it is important to that Skeptic to keep from imposing her own restrictions on others. MEntity: The Negative Pole Skeptic has already decided you are wrong. MEntity: She may probe you for more interaction, not as a means for sorting, but as a means for holding it up to mock or discredit. MEntity: This Skeptic may not even ask you or interact with you because she has already decided you are wrong, uninformed, or some form of threat to her being right. MEntity: The above may be obviously or quietly brought to a social situation. 01:48:25 PM Bobby: Being that this is a Higher Moving Centered year, there has been a good deal of larger seismic activity around the planet so far this year. As things look now and into the rest of this year, are probabilities building for the increased likelihood of any sort of major event of some type? MEntity: Yes Bobby: LOL Bobby: anything else you'd share? GeraldineB: LOL -- Michael, you so crack me up :) Kurt: oh no... MEntity: Seismic activity is being registered more because better methods are being used now, and the more seismic activity, the "better" in that it means relief is coming to stressed lines. This does not always prevent larger events, but it often does. Greater threats arise in areas were seismic activity is low or non-existent, even as it is clear there are fault lines. MEntity: Though there are no years with exclusive claim to major events, we have seen that Higher Moving Centered years do have a strong track record for globally-significant events that can range from earthquakes, extremes of weather, and Solar activity. MEntity: Though several events of extreme have already happened in this year, we do not think the "big one" has come about, but we do think it will. We say this, not as a prediction or ominous note, but as a matter of momentum of patterns we can observe. GeraldineB: Where? Bobby: lol GeraldineB: Mt Rainier? during late June? Oh no!!! Kurt: cringes all throughout MEntity: We cannot predict. We can only say that that there are several probable locations and events moving into stressed states. MEntity: We will conclude here for today. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now. Janet: Talk about a cliffhanger Kurt: later... Kurt: I swear now i'm on edge Kurt: Have to calm my phobia... GeraldineB: DAMMIT!!! Bobby: heehee GeraldineB: LOL GeraldineB: Thank you, Michael and Troy :) Bobby: well, look where there hasn't been activity if they are locked :-) Kurt: *internal screaming* 02:02:42 PM *********** June 8, 2015 Followup Q to the Earthquake Q from this Ask Michael Session: GeraldineB: 2) Yesterday, earthquakes were discussed in the Ask Michael session. Could we have a probability of possible major earthquakes during 2015, approximately 8 pt or higher, either along the West coast of the U.S. from Alaska to Baja California, either of the two Super volcano sites in the U.S. – Mammoth Lake or Yellowstone, and along the New Madrid faultline. MEntity: In response to your next question: MEntity: To speak of probabilities for Earthquakes is one of the most difficult to assess. We know you know the lack of solid ground we can give for any prediction, and for many probabilities. With that being understood, we can say that we see the higher probabilities for Earthquakes near the 8.0 range as being around Missouri and Tennessee, or further East, because these areas are long-overdue for release. Numbers between 6.0 and 8.0 seem to be most probable further West. MEntity: The entire Pacific Rim up and down and beyond in both directions along the Western United States is high in probability for those numbers. MEntity: We do not have any way to be more accurate. MEntity: In parallels "close" to "this" parallel, Portland to Vancouver have been hit hard, as well as generated tsunamis to the coasts of Alaska.

    Ask Michael: February 2015

    ASK Michael Live Chat February 1, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley JeanAU: Hi Michael fragments of your Entity perform the same work, that is channeling? Are you involved in other activities, if so would you mind telling us what they are. Also do you feel any individuality. MEntity: Hello, Jean. All of our fragments are involved in channeling, but in different tiers that help us to accomplish this. In addition to those various tiers, we are also involved in any number of activities and explorations. "Life" as a Causal Entity is as diverse as life as a Physical fragment. In terms of our work through channeling, we have the first tier that works on holding our grounding or Anchoring. These are the fragments who hold our place in time and space relative to our students. Then we have a tier that works on our Cording, or the links that branch out from our fragments to other fragments. These are sustained with students and channels. Then we have a tier that manages our Agreements. Then we have a Tier that handles all Akashic Record research. Then we have our tier that does the work of Communication. Then we have our tier where we sustain our own ideals and vision and aim for evolution, or our Application tier. Then we have our Learning Tier, where we study with our own teachers. All of these Tiers: GROUNDING, CORDING, AGREEMENTS, AKASHIC, COMMUNICATION, APPLICATION, LEARNING, contribute to the dynamic that you experience as "channeling." This is also the case for us in our incarnations as Transcendental Soul. Fragments from among our entity rotate through these tiers. As for other activities, we have everything that would be familiar to you as "travel," "vacations," study, dreaming, bonding, arts, etc. No sense of individuality is ever lost, it is only enhanced to a degree very difficult to comprehend while Physical. It is as difficult to comprehend as it is to comprehend that "you" are a conglomeration of cohesive cells and atoms and microbes that contribute to all of who "YOU" are. We are, at once, completely whole as an Entity, but acutely aware of ourselves as parts within parts. No lifetime or Personality is lost. It is embraced and integrated. Never lost. JeanAU: That mAKES ME FEEL BETTER JeanAU: I believe we were sloth-like in the beginning on Sirius - over millions of years can you give us an idea of how we looked at various stages? MEntity: The species that was "sloth-like" started as large, lumbering, vegetarian, quadrupedal about the size of what you know as Elephants. These evolved into smaller and smaller versions rather rapidly over time, relatively speaking, and because of fruitarian/vegetarian diet, and the change in plant life over time, the species evolved into greater and greater use of the forelegs into forearms, moving from lumbering and into climbing. By the time of our transfer, we were still not entirely bipedal, and quite like Chimpanzees might be seen today, so our splicing with primates was the easiest. Because of the splicing from one species to another, the evolution of Human will always have a "missing link." Maureen: (Question via Rolf) What happens when someone releases a part, or parts, of their body post mortem for reuse? There are reports that organ recipients take over personality traits of the donor. If one is aware that the physical body is the manifestation of spiritual energy it would seem natural that something like an “energetic signature” would persist like a "psychic fingerprint". Maureen: What does this mean for the donor after death and what does this mean for the recipient? MEntity: We have always told you that the Personality is genetic. It is not merely "energetic." It is in the cells of the body. It is a series of switches, so to speak, that are on or off in combinations that are the base Personality. In addition to this, we have always said that the body is a local storehouse for memories, wounding, healing, etc. This is because memory is not local to the brain, though the brain manages it. In addition to this, there is imprinting, which is also not merely "energetic," but a kind of behavior modification that reaches into cellular levels. So an organ that remains alive and moved to a new body will retain whatever memories, programming, and imprinting. This retention is easily overridden, but can take as long as 7 years. Depending on the recipient, whatever has come along with the organ can be integrated, overridden, or ignored. However one would prefer to describe this phenomenon, it is very similar to how a Walk-in process is fulfilled. Except, in reverse. Rather than an Essence walking into a body, a body is walking into an Essence. So to speak. This is a topic that can be explored in a multitude of directions. Do you have further questions for now? Maureen: No, that was perfect Michael. JanaK: Hello Michael, could you please comment on validity/feasibility of pranic nutrition as described and allegedly practised by Henri Monfort, Prahlad Jani, (pratially?) Jasmuheen, and many others? I keep hearing about it and though I know it defies all we have been told about nutrition, the people I hear about it from don't give me impression of lying JanaK: Prahlad Jani was also medically observed in a hospital and confirmed not to eat of even drink for I don't know how long. I know Troy thinks it's bullcrap :) Can you see if these claims are valid and how is it possible if they are? Are they lying? MEntity: Troy's lack of "belief" is well-founded, from what we can see. We know of no humans living without food who can live longer than the usual time frame for the body that lives with no food. No credible proof of this has been offered within the very simple range that would be necessary to exemplify this. Humans do not photosynthesize for their primary nutritional purposes, and no Physical body simply lives off of "spirit energy." It is true that there is a life force that animates the body and is the difference between "living and dead," but that force is not unidirectional. It is part of a circuit. And while there is nourishment from spirit, and light is vital to Humans, neither of these can keep a body alive. Of course these fragments are lying. Either to themselves, to others, or both. In the observations that we know of, foods are still being eaten, however small in quantity. It is true that one can live off of very small quantities of food and extend the life beyond a breaking point if there were no food, but that quality of life force would diminish greatly, and require tremendous relinquishing of participation in life. Bodies are affected by beliefs, this is true, but the will to live does not trump the nature of Physical reality. If that were the case, the delusional man who truly believes he can fly would not crash, or the sheer number of individuals consciously or subconsciously terrified of crashing during a flight would bring down that aircraft. We know that many things are possible, and that the universe is never conclusive, however static its momentum, but if there are Humans who are living with no food and sustaining a healthy and active life by choice to feast only on light and breath, we know of no one. In most cases where this belief is upheld, there is delusion, escapism, and extreme variations on Arrogance at work. JanaK: Interesting, as the people claiming it seem quite humble MEntity: The greatest of arrogance is wrapped in self-deprecation. If you feel you resonate to the claims, it is because there is truth to the possibility, as there are many organisms who can live in such a way. They are not Human, however. If one were to begin training the body to live on minimal food, it would still not be because he were living on light or breath. He would merely be living on minimal food. brian: Hi Michael. I was wondering if you could comment on how the three types of centering affects relationships and how exchanges are processed and interpreted (or misinterpreted) ? MEntity: As with all Overleaves, it is more about the Poles than about the actual Overleaves, in terms of how these work together or work against each other. A Moving-Centered individual partnered with an Intellectual can work very well together from their Positive Poles, while two Emotionally-Centered individuals in the Negative Poles might destroy their relationship. In terms of Centering, this is even more flexible in that when one is in the Positive Poles, there is far more flexibility, as well, so that one is not habitual in Centering. Centering is not static. It can move through all Centers. One can move through all Centers. If you have two Sentimental Emotional fragments together who cannot let go of the past, then each will simply drag their "baggage" around with them and into the relationship, for example, and often presume the other person must do the work of either trumping their own baggage, or the work of relieving them of that baggage. Or two "Reasonable" Intellectuals who constantly justify their behaviors and/or choices without reaching any Insight about the choices and behaviors of the other. That being said, when there are two fragments in a relationship coming from two different Centers, the third Center would tend to be the common ground for help in either bringing resolution, excitement, breaks from patterns and habits, etc. So if an Emotional and Intellectual are in a relationship, some of their greatest common ground might come from the Moving. What that means is different for different fragments. For some, it might mean something as simple as DOING things together. Not just thinking and feeling. Many Intellectual/Emotional pairs can fall into ruts, routine, or second-guessing if there is no action to explore. For others it might mean creating something tangible together as representation of the relationship. So you would want to look to Productivity, or finding a new solution, direction, pattern, anything that might bring a different result. We cannot delineate all combinations here today, but we think this is a start. Bobby: Regarding the last paragraph in January's Energy Report "What Dreams May Come" would you provide some additional detail as far as what you had in mind on that last sentence: Tracking your dreams over January and through March may provide you with some bizarrely wonderful entertainment, at worst, and profound symbolic and prophetic patterns at best MEntity: We were being fairly literal here. The dreams might be entertaining, which is likely the case if you find waking state references that were from your day, or they may be prophetic in that they describe one of three scenarios: highly probable, highly improbable, or test probabilities. Some of which may come true. Does this address your question? Bobby: Um, ok, I was just testing the waters there MEntity: We understand. We were simplistically rather literal in that instance. DavidB: I noticed that Entity 1/2 has by far the most fragments planning to attend the first TLE gathering in September and that Entity 1/7 has the second largest group of fragments planning to attend. I've also noticed that some in 1/7 (perhaps more than usual?) seem to have their ETs in 1/2 and vice versa (including myself). I remember it being said that most fragments in Entity 7 of one Cadre usually have Essence Twins in the Entity 7s of other Cadres. Is there a unique tie between 1/2 and 1/7 to account for these apparent phenomena, or am I seeing something that isn't there? MEntity: A bout half of Entity 7 is paired with other Entity 7s, particularly of the next Cadre. This leaves about 600 paired across its own Cadre. Entity 2 is not more unique in its twinning with Entity 7, but it happens that 2 and 7 have tended to have a push/pull, love/hate, go/stay type of dynamic between the members when incarnated. Entity 7 is quite keen on completing external monads with as many members as possible from other entities, and entity 2, having been quite an eager and outgoing bunch, tend to be available quite often. In that sense, there is a kind of unique "Heart Linking" in high numbers between fragments of those two entities. Kurt: Hi Michael, Attitudes appear in social situations, so I was wondering if you could talk about how Spiritualists appear/act in socializing. MEntity: In the positive pole, Spiritualists will tend to be listeners and hear you out, no matter what you are saying. They will tend to be open-minded, and give you the space to share your truth, without feeling compelled to agree with it or challenge it. They do not feel you are asking of them to believe anything, and they do tend to trust that you would do the same for them. In the negative pole, Spiritualists may tend to use you as a launching pad for sharing anything that might add an "oohh or an aahhh" to the exchange. The sharing is far more conclusive and sometimes even competitive in terms of challenging beliefs. In other words, they can tend to stretch the truth just to hear you react in awe, or to drown out your own beliefs if they are not interesting to them. In social situations, look for the Spiritualist to be the most indecisive, or the most decisive if in the negative pole. In the positive pole, they would help make the decision, but will not impose one. There are more symptoms of the Spiritualist in social scenarios, but this is a bit of an idea. We will conclude here for today.
  20. This session took place on June 8, 2008. [Michael Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here. [QUESTION] I see a lot of folks who have bad dreams in my work and have found that while interpretation can be useful, people often find relief just by imagining a better ending for the dream. I don't remember where I learned that (maybe from you?). Anyway it seems to bring relief from nightmares. What is the mechanism by which this works? is it just that I say it will and people believe me? Or is it something astral? or simply the subconscious mind doing its thing? All that seems to be required is a good imagination and being in "alpha" waves. [Michael Entity] There is a level of dreaming that is primarily symbolic and these dreams are where issues from the waking life are being processed or examined. It does not require a fragment to be asleep for those symbols to be meaningful, but the symbols that are recalled from the dream are often the most directly-significant to the issues. For most fragments, the dream state can help resolve these issues being played out symbolically. This symbolic level of dreaming is very similar to how fragments experience and interact on the Astral Plane anyway, but for those fragments who have not resolved the issues being played out in symbolic dreaming, then bringing in the consciousness of the waking personality can help break the worrying cycle that has led to what some describe as "nightmares." This method of resolution is a natural strength for most fragments, which is why it so naturally occurs during sleep where the Personality dissolves to its default nature of strengths and weaknesses. Nearly all fragments assign symbolism to emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical elements of the life, though this symbolism is often lost to the conscious personality (waking state). When you, QUESTIONER, direct a fragment to use those symbols and experiences from the dream in a conscious way to bring about a break in the cycle and to direct toward resolution, it is not only resolving the issue in many ways, but bringing about an alignment between the conscious and subconscious selves. This same method can be used for those who are not having nightmares or remembering dreams: Examining an issue within the waking state and breaking it down into symbolism, then manipulating those symbols into a way that brings about a sense of direction, closure, or change can help implement those very things in the reality. For instance, a fragment may be feeling obstacles or patterns that keep him or her locked into poverty or survival modes. This fragment might choose a symbol to represent himself and the obstacles or patterns, adding in a current idea of a solution, and manipulate these into a way that displays a symbolic solution. Keeping that symbolic sense of solution at hand, in mind, heart, or even visually depicted (drawn out), can help to break the current symbolic pattern. [QUESTIONER] cool! bypasses the intellect setting up barriers I would think [Michael Entity] Your assessment is valid, for it is the Intellect that often keeps movement locked into an undesirable pattern. This is by no means true in all situations, but in many, it is. [QUESTION] Could you give an example of this conscious working with symbols such as the poverty or survival mode idea? [Michael Entity] Questioner, the symbolism would have to be specific to the individual, so our example will not be universal. For instance, one example might be a CAT to represent the individual, a BALL INSIDE A CIRCULAR TUBED TRACK with just a bit of a slit along the inside ring of the tube for reaching at the ball, to represent the pattern/obstacle. The current situation has the cat swatting at the ball over and over and often in a frenzy while the ball is forever locked inside that circular track. No amount of swatting or maneuvering is going to change this ball's circular roll within the tubed track. This person might then change the pattern by realizing that the symbolic pattern of the ball in the track means that everything about what the cat is doing is never going to get anywhere beyond chasing current ideas, actions, and feelings in circles. This situation would either require intervention (maybe a human to come along and break open the track to get to the ball) or to simply walk away to a completely new adventure. For the sake of this example, it might seem to be the most directly implementable action to simply walk away from the current ideas and actions. This person might then imagine the cat walking away wistfully and finding a small tree with accessible branches bearing dollar bills, all dangling in the wind. The cat is seen as having an hilarious and playful time jumping and swatting at the branches and knocking down the dollar bills into a pile. This person, then, might keep that image in mind when he or she begins to feel trapped again within patterns that are obviously not working so that he or she can be open to other, more accessible, inputs and possibilities within the reality. Keep in mind that these symbolic plays are NOT the solution in themselves, but are symbolic shifts toward internal solutions or breaks from patterns in how one is perceiving and interpreting reality, which is then a powerful step toward finding and creating external "real life" solutions and breaks. We would also suggest examining why this person might have chosen himself to be symbolized by a CAT, looking at all that a cat means to that person and applying that insight as a way to discover how he or she sees the self in relation to the issue. We will point out here that this topic could be an entire discussion in itself and one that might be worth examining in the future. [QUESTION] What is meditation? Is it just silencing the internal chattering, or is something else involved? I recently had some personal advice in meditation from Michael, but trying to follow it, I started wondering what meditation actually is. [Michael Entity] From our perspective, "meditation" is a word to describe the work through a triad that leads to adaptable balancing among all centers. This triad could be described as: EXAMINATION, IMPLEMENTATION, REALIZATION. We will describe this in detail now. First, a fragment would Examine the life to determine which Center is seeming least used, least effective, least understood, etc. For simplistic purposes, we will contain this to the 3 Primary Centers. So if one were to see that the MOVING Center is being used the least, or is the least effective, then this would determine the direction of IMPLEMENTATION. This would mean that your "meditation" would be of a Moving-Centered sort. Stillness or stereotypical concepts of "meditation" would not work for this fragment. This fragment could then Implement a moving meditation into his or her days. This moving meditation could be anything that includes the body and movement, which means that meditation could be anything from exercise to dancing to simple movements of the body while seated. Once a method has been Implemented, then the practice of this on a regular basis will lead to REALIZATION, which simply describes the effect of that particular meditation. In this case, a balance within the self that has taught the body how to call upon its moving center in a more effective way. The Implementation stage is the most important stage as it requires some amount of commitment for Realization to come about. The entirety of the experience from Examination to Implementation to Realization is "meditation." In other words, Meditation is not simply a separation from your routines (examination), nor is it simply the clear focus of intent during parts of your day (implementation), nor is it just the benefits on the other side of implementation (realization). It is a triad of effort. [QUESTION] what would be an example of using Emotional as the Center for Implementation? [Michael Entity] Listening to music that stimulates the emotions could be good for some fragments, while watching dramatic movies could be good for others; still others might find a walk through beautiful environments to be a means for implementing Emotional; exploring art could be another example for some. [QUESTION] So it doesn't matter if I think of this and that during implementation, as long as I move? [Michael Entity] The more consciousness one can direct toward that which is being implemented, the greater the Realization. So if one is implementing Movement, one can think and feel whatever one wishes, but allow the consciousness to fully embrace the body, the sensations, the experience of the movement as clearly as possible. It cannot hurt to be as focused as one can be on the implementation, but it is not necessary to block other natural elements within you. [QUESTIONER] I thought so [Michael Entity] Those who experience the Realization will find that one can think, feel, and act in a way that each does not overshadow or block the other. This is another topic worth exploring, if our students wished. [QUESTION] I want to know about the 4th internal monad and how one would know if they were on the way to manifesting their true personality [Michael Entity] The easiest way one can gauge whether one is moving forward through the 4th Internal Monad in a way that is a positive transition, or to gauge whether one has completed a 4th Internal Monad in a way that was in the Positive Pole, is to ask one, simple question: DO I LIKE ME? To the degree that a fragment can honestly say that he or she likes himself or herself, is the degree to which the 4th Internal Monad is being completed, or has been completed, in the Positive Pole. The Positive Pole of the entire 4th Internal Monad is Self-Realization, which is the experience of being present with who you are and generally liking who you are. The Negative Pole is Acquiescence, which is the feeling of being forced or succumbing to "who you are," and not really liking who that is. In short, if you can answer the question DO I LIKE ME? with an answer of "yes" to any degree, then you are generally manifesting True Personality to that degree. [QUESTION] There are different ”schools” teaching how to do psychic readings/how to read energy fields/do energy work. When doing a reading it's sometimes being used different energy techniques for different issues coming up in a reading. For instance: 1.Create and destroy, 2.Removing fear energies, 3.Delete programming, 4.Erasure and 5.Astral healing. If possible I would like Michael make a comment on the use of these techniques and the fact that some of these schools, even today, try to keep some secrecy around the energy techniques. [Michael Entity] Many "schools" who claim secrecy over their techniques are run by, and determined by, Baby Souls. The techniques involved would be beneficial to other Baby Souls, and to some Young Souls, but probably quite ineffective for Mature or Older Souls to use. This is because the techniques and beliefs that make these work are mythological and superstitiously rooted. If one can adapt these Baby Soul concepts into a more mature language and method, then the schooling might not be lost on the Mature or Older soul, but this would have to be kept in mind along the way. For instance, the idea that one can heal another is a Baby Soul concept, but the reality that one can help another to heal himself is a Mature concept. Even on the most physical of levels of intervention, a physical doctor can only do so much in treating a fragment and the fragment "being healed" must ultimately do the healing. Tending, or intervening the impact of wounds is one thing; but healing is always a personal matter. The older souls know this. We mention this as an example because many of the more secretive techniques and schoolings teach as an undercurrent a kind of power over others (whether for "good" or "bad,") and this ultimate power is simply not valid. If your technique for healing is considerate of the dynamic that needs to be in place between healer and wounded, with an holistic awareness, then the technique would be the most effective and valid. Techniques that leave out the choice of another tend to lead to Karma. [QUESTION] I have recently been involved in discussions with a few of my friends regarding political and governmental systems regarding which are the most effective. My friends would gladly describe themselves as “libertarian” whereas I cannot completely proscribe to such an ideology, if only because their description of “libertarianism” seems to give too much authority to the private sector and private interests; of which I am not entirely comfortable. They would likely label me as “socialist” or as “bleeding heart liberal” if they didn't know me better! I guess the questions are: Is there or are there ideal governmental system(s) or ideology for the current average soul age we are in currently, based on what Michael has perceived from other sentient beings? What do these systems look like? Perhaps what the United States and the rest of the world is currently experiencing in their governments are pretty typical for our current soul age development? That would be my perception at least. Also, what do typical governments look like on worlds that have a majority of old souls? Or do they even have governments? [Michael Entity] The politics of any given region or period of time usually describe the friction between the approaching paradigm and the current paradigm, each respectively defined by the approaching dominant Soul Age and the current dominant Soul Age. Many of the names assigned to the varying "parties" are tedious and unnecessary, so we will speak in broader terms here. NOTE FROM TROY: Some editing was done from the original text as I asked Michael for clarifications and questioned a couple of the original details. Also, the true definitions and delineations for all of the political/governmental systems can really get complicated, so Michael's response seems to be exactly what they've said, a "broader" perspective, at best. They did explain to me that there are really only three political systems, but a multitude of systems within those systems. [Michael Entity] It could be said that the following political systems are associated in this way: Infant Souls have no politics or order, and are therefore at the mercy of whatever dominant political system is in place at the time. However, they may be most comfortable with Dictatorship, which would be implemented by Baby Souls. The Baby/Young politics have shown up as Dictatorship, Capitalism, and Socialism. The Young/Mature politics have shown up as Monarchy, Republic, Socialism, and Communism. The Mature/Old politics have shown up as Monarchy, Democracy, and Anarchy. Old Soul politics return to a state of no politics, but more of what might be considered Anarchy. We use the word "anarchy" in its true definition, not as the Young or Mature soul might exploit the term. The anarchy usually takes on a form that would be recognized as Tribalism. In response to your questions: We would say that the politics of your current world are exactly indicative of the shifts from the dominant paradigm/soul age to another. From what we can see of other populations dominated by Old Soul Ages and paradigms, there are no governments that you would recognize beyond being more tribal groups in communication and exchange with one another, but with no discernible leader or authority. This is one of the reasons our teaching is particularly attractive to the older soul, since there is no discernible authority beyond the self, and even the sense of self is held in question to a degree that allows for sensitive consideration of all factors involved in the life. An Old Soul world is similar. [QUESTION] I realize my background in government is obviously lacking when I ask this question, but: Is there any distinguishable difference between a democracy and a republic according to Michael's perception? By including both, it seems to be implied that there is a difference. [Michael Entity] We differentiate a Republic from a Democracy in that a Republic has a more specifically-defined body of qualified voters or elected representatives, while a Democracy seeks to include all people, even those who might not be obviously qualified. The concept of Democracy can get confusing in some cultures such as in the United States because several forms of government are in place. Rather than a pure Democracy, the United States is far more accurately described as a Republic, which is a form of Democracy, but not true Democracy. In addition to this, the general promotion of Democracy is run from an Authoritarian perspective, or as a Plutocracy, to be specific. It could be said that the Physical economy of the United States is run by Plutocratic (authoritarian) politics, while the Emotional economy is run by Republican (Democratic) methods, and this is to be considered when looking at politics. There are Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and Spiritual levels of Politics and Economy to consider in any system. The closest to an old soul political system that exists in your world today is what is experienced as "the Internet." [QUESTION] How are the Internet and politics related? [Michael Entity] If "politics" is seen as a term to describe how a body of people govern themselves and resolve apparent conflicts, then the Internet could be seen as a system of politics. In this case, as would be the case for the Old Soul world, COMMUNICATION would be at the core of those politics, or the INTELLECT as economy. The Infant Soul uses Freedom; the Baby Soul uses Authority; the Young Soul uses Capital; the Mature Soul uses Well-Being; and the Old Soul uses Communication at the root of their politics. The "ultimate" political system, in the end, will have to utilize all of these factors to govern a mix of soul ages. Hence, the politics of a Democracy or a Republic will include previous political emphases to some degree, but with the more current politics being the emphasis. [QUESTION] And so, just as we are doing here in this chat, everyone determines for themselves, and then relates to the outside world through communication. but as an autonomous being similarly engaged with other autonomous beings/people? Something like this? [Michael Entity] We think we have understood your question and we would agree. It could be said then that the politics of the Old Soul are CONTEXTUAL. Certain politics apply within specific instances, but are not seen as appropriate across the board. And each person determines his or her level of compliance within certain contexts, or freely moves to more appropriate contexts. We realize this is far from being deeply explored, but we will move on now. [QUESTION] Since we acquire new bodies each lifetime, why do we still carry "memories" of injuries from past lives into new lifetimes? How does this work? For ex. my back pain has been channeled as being from an injury from a past life that I am working out. [Michael Entity] One only carries "memories" of injuries into a current life when those injuries or memories are relevant to the current life. They are never random, and never literal. For instance, your back pain is a manifestation of similar patterns being explored within this lifetime that are resonant to other lifetimes of similar exploration. It is not that the injury was literally carried over, but that you are doing similar things in a similar way that then resonate to that other lifetime. That resonance can help in healing the current injury only insofar as insights can be gained from experiences integrated by your Essence from that lifetime. The resonance to the other lifetime is not to give justification or distraction from your current ailments, but to allow a means of direct access to the wisdom stored by Essence from that lifetime. If one can imagine one lifetime as one point on a line, while another lifetime is another point at a distance on that line, and then imagine a line being drawn from one lifetime to another, that line CANNOT be "drawn" without first creating an arc through Essence, which is "above the line." Often Personality can relate to other Personalities before it can relate to Essence, so it "remembers" (or receives through a channel) the reference to another lifetime of similarity, but this is merely a method for indirectly accessing Essence. Keeping that in mind can help the point of that remembering and resonance. However, to be more specific in response to your question, it is not the injury that carries over, nor the memory, but the PATTERNS that are stored in your Instinctive Center, which is pulled from one lifetime and then "inserted" into another lifetime. This is not a literal event, but the image is helpful. It can also hep to think of it as a program, or a collection of programs/software that is now available to the new personality. Depending on the choices of the current personality, certain programs/software/patterns will emerge for use, and many will not. In your case, QUESTIONER, you have called upon a theme of self-esteem issues, and these issues are often ignored or overridden on the emotional or intellectual levels to a degree that physical manifestation helps in tending to that theme of issues. You will then find resonance to lifetimes where a similar physical injury or ailment was being explored for similar reasons. [QUESTION] Could Michael suggest some energy-work on such an issue? [Michael Entity] The "energy work" for any given ailment would have to be relative to the ailment and the individual, but we can say that any chronic aching that is related to self-esteem issues would require "energy work" on the Emotional Body as a focal point, while emphasis of RELIEF on the Physical Body will help in allowing that focus. This energy work on the Emotional Body might be anything from cathartic expression to gestalt therapies to flotation therapies to singing therapies to permission therapies that allow for more of what one craves, etc. We wish to point out here that the patterns carried over from one lifetime to another are only brought into reality by the choices of the current personality. For instance, there have have been lifetimes for the Questioner that have been lived between the past life back injury and the back injury of this lifetime. Back pain was not an issue in those lifetimes between. A more poetic way to understand this might be that the songs heard from other lifetimes depends on the melodies played by this one. [QUESTION] I would like more information on the upcoming (or current??) nexus. It feels to me as if everything over a period of some months has been leading to this (at least for me personally.) Lots of old wounds and even fear patterns (particularly self-esteem, self-worth issues) have been triggered. I recognize them for what they are, but I need to find a way to stay focused on what it is that I want to create, particularly in terms of my career. I am also dealing with a boss who has a very different approach to life than I do. I am guessing she is some combination of sage/priest/warrior - very focused, driven (passion mode?) energy though even though I think she is emotionally centered. Whereas, even though I am a scholar, and intellectually centered, my approach is more fuzzy, diffuse, and go with the flow, or at least it feels that way. Any suggestions here? Please direct your answer in any way that would be helpful to others in general. I can follow up with Troy on the more personal aspects later. [Michael Entity] What we can say about the upcoming Nexus is that there seems to be an exploration of the concept of COMPARISONS/CONTRASTS. This seems to be resulting from the enthusiasm/collapse extremes that we have described for many of our students. The enthusiasm comes from the Persistence energy that pushes beyond the collapsing experience of Unchanging energy. It is fair to compare and contrast the unchanging energy with the persistent energy, or the collapsing energy with the enthusiastic energy, but will not be fair to oneself to presume one is stuck in this pattern indefinitely, or to presume one has to remain in one or the other. In light of this, many of you may find representatives of your inner enthusiasm/collapse around you. In your case, it could be said that your "boss" represents the enthusiasm, while "you" represent the collapses. This then leads to your attributing distaste for enthusiasm because your boss expresses it differently from what you would, and this leads to distaste for yourself since you see most easily the collapse in you. [QUESTION] and how to move beyond this? [Michael Entity] What one could do, using your example, is to try what we suggested in our Energy Report, which is to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. In this case, it might mean to flip and reverse your perspective and interpretations in a completely enlightening and revitalizing way (instead of in the debilitating way that is your current pattern). Allow your boss to be the wonderful representative of how you create your collapses, and for yourself to represent what actually inspires your enthusiasm. In other words, doing things your way actually leads to productivity, creativity, and meaning, while doing things her way leads to confusion, overwhelm, and hopelessness. [QUESTIONER] I'm not quite grasping this [Michael Entity] If we are seeing the situation clearly, we would say that your collapses come in your comparing yourself to others forms of productivity and trying to implement methods not natural to you, whereas realizing what does and does not work for you allows for you to implement practices that encourage your enthusiasm and do not require you to conform to anyone else's methods. We believe we may be getting into personal territory and will halt our response here, but simply point out that the upcoming Nexus is one that emphasizes CONTRASTS and COMPARISONS and this is to allow for heightened awareness of what IS and IS NOT working for you in various areas of your life. The process of Comparing and Contrasting can often feel like self-judgment or judgment of others, and it is just that, but it is not something to be feared. It is simply a natural method for navigating life. To fear it is to remain stuck. To remain stuck is to remain at the extreme of collapse. We will conclude here, then. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  21. MICHAEL SPEAKS 120207 Open Floor QUESTION : WHEN TROY POSTED THE CHIEF FEATURES OF THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, HE SAID THE AKASHIC FEATURES WERE BEING ACCESSED, HAVE NOT HEARD MENTION OF THIS DISTINCTION, CAN YOU CLARIFY? MICHAEL: Through some of our channels and students it has become clear, through questioning and observation, that there are three versions of an individual's Essence and Personality Profile: the Private Version (that which you wish for your Overleaves to be), the Public Version (that which others assume you are), and your Akashic, or True Overleaves, which are on record and may or may not coincide with the projected overleaves (private) and/or the expected overleaves (public). These variations have always been in effect due to variations of clarity among channels, but only recently have the channels begun to truly explore the apparent discrepancies. All three can lend insights to a Personality and a life, so we do not imply that one is better than another. They are simply different angles of approach to understanding the Personality. In many cases, for instance, regarding public figures, our channels and students often interpret the fragment by the persona seen through the filters of media, thus interpreting aspects of the profile to fit those observations, instead of reading the True Overleaves. QUESTION: For the chief features, though, I don't understand. Since, supposedly, according to Michael, it is a pivotal event that is the catalyst to put us into our chief feature and it is not pre-chosen? MICHAEL: You are correct. Chief Negative Features are not pre-chosen. This, however, has nothing to do with an individual's interpretation of himself or his interpretation of another person versus the Akashic version of either. We will give you an example: A fragment in Arrogance may not see himself as Arrogant, but sees himself as Impatient, since he equates his quick judgment of people as a form of intolerance. Still others may interpret him as Stubborn because he avoids intimate situations and does not budge from that stance. Those interpretations from the self or from others does not change the fact that on record his fears are rooted in Vulnerability, or Arrogance. Each version will lend insight, especially if understood within the proper context. It is Good Work to understand how others see you, and how you see yourself, and how you ARE. That is triad of self. QUESTION: Like so many others, we work thru life issues in dreams. Intense dreams with water....flooding. dark, raging storms or instant floods...swim through...waking up up very emotionally spent. Please explain the flooding in dreams. thank you. MICHAEL: It is true that one level of dreaming is for the processing of events. In many cases the universal symbols are used to work through these events, such as Water equating levels of emotions. It could be said, then, that these descriptions you lend to your symbol of water are equated with the same descriptions you would give to some obvious experiences of emotion (or fears) in your waking life. However, what tends to be even more insightful in your dreaming is your position relative to the symbol. If you are drowning, the "meaning" can be very different from if you are managing a rocking ship. It is always a more direct and accurate route of dream interpretation for the individual to write down what the symbols mean to himself or herself and then put it back into the context of the dream and assess how those symbols interact with each other and the dreamer. In general, though, water is often used by fragments to symbolize emotions, or the lower astral plane (emotional plane). QUESTION: I've been reading a lot of previous groups' postings from the Michael groups and have answered more than one of my questions; however, "essence mates," from other grand cycle ETs, remains inexplicable. Can you elaborate on them and the role they play in many of our current lives or cycles, and conversely our role in theirs? MICHAEL : They rarely play a significant role beyond the opportunity for Essence Recognition, which is the only form of true evolution. In that regard, they are highly significant, but that is not exclusive to an Essence Mate; all fragments with which you have had past contact are potential opportunities for Essence Recognition. Essence Mates could be likened to an "Ex" with which you have had a relationship that ran its course and transitioned positively with total closure; the nostalgia and resonance is warm and soft, with undertones of deep appreciation, but no charge; no intensity. Spending an entire Grand Cycle with a fragment leaves even the "spark" with the "memories." This is because a Grand Cycle to your Essence/Spark is like a single lifetime is to your Role, taking with it the memories most resonate and impactful. An Essence Mate can often be included in the new cycle as a significant relationship again within this new context, but that is a relationship between Roles, not the Sparks, and "Essence Mate" refers to the Sparks' relationship. We will include here that what we mean by "Essence Recognition" is the profound "knowing" that one has a relationship with another fragment or self beyond the present version. We will also include the note that, while "Essence" and "Role" are often used interchangeably, they are technically different: the Essence takes on a Role, hence your Essence Role, or Role in Essence, but your Essence, itself, does not have a Role. QUESTION: More like Traveling Companions? MICHAEL: No, Traveling Companions are yours because of current-cycle mathematical associations. Essence Mates do not necessarily have any mathematical resonance and ties. They are simply remembered. QUESTION: My question concerns identifying Input sources when one is receiving information/energy from a source beyond one's self, whether in channeling, tarot, dreams, etc. I once had a dream in which Michael said, "Every time you have thought it was us, it was us." Could you give me specific ways that a student who is openly seeking contact might know when they have contact with the Michael entity, as opposed to their Essence, guides, or other teachers? In what ways might we experience Michael's influence in our daily lives, when the channels are not around? MICHAEL : We try to be as present as possible for all who call upon us, even if the channel is a "fraud" and even if the student is "delusional." We are aware of when any of you call upon us. Our presence, however, is as clear through a channel, or to a student, as that person is with himself or herself. This is why many of you who begin accessing higher sources of contact (for lack of a better phrase), whether this is us, or your own "Higher Self," the voice or energy "sounds like you," or feels like your own imagination. This is because it is a necessary part of the process in clearing out a channel to a higher source that you first clear out all of your own ideas, prejudices, and presumption about what should happen or what should be the responses to your inquiries. One of the easiest and most direct ways of learning to differentiate our energy from your own is to go ahead, freely, with your use of imagination as your form of contact. Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for "extra-sensory" perceptions. As you keep track of your contact, you will begin to notice glimpses of validation for contact with us that are clearly not "you." There is not as easy a differentiation when accessing your Higher Self (Essence), however, as that IS you to a great degree. But that is not your question, so we will not elaborate at this time. We can also add that many of our channels and students interpret our energy as Blue, as a Crowd, as literal images of Kings/Warriors, and as a sphere of some kind. These are only a few examples, but each finds his or her own means of interpreting us. We've seen our energy interpreted by your dreams as a medallion in the past. QUESTION: Hello Michael! I was really fascinated by last month's message about how to develop one's communication with Michael. Can you elaborate on the part about how to build strength in the axes where we lack emphasis in our charts? MICHAEL: Yes. This is already in the works with Troy in his posting an "MBlog" entry soon, which will elaborate on this. A response to your question will be found there. QUESTION: We've had discussion threads about the different feel to different Channels of You. Is the primary difference due to different fragment groups being accessed within You? MICHAEL: We have elaborated on this question in the past, and will include it with Troy's edited transcript of this session. This may shed a great deal of light on your question. (NOTE: see excerpt added at end of transcript) We can say to you now, however, that the accessing of various groups of fragments among us through different channels has the least significance in what you experience as differences. This is often used to explain the differences, but it has little, if no bearing. We are a reunited entity and speak as one, regardless of the representative speaking for us. We are not fragmented into groups and we do not run our communications among us from separate "cubicles" that do not interact or share the same perception. We do not have various personalities and we do not have different things to say from among us. These explanations are conveniences created from various levels of understanding of the process of channels as a means to explain discrepancies and variations of feel and expression, but they are not valid. The primary differences are found in the level of agreement with us for communicating our teaching and the level of presence from the personality conveying our energy, whether verbally or non-verbally. We will conclude here. Good day to all of you. Goodbye. ADDITIONAL CHANNELING: QUESTION: Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? MICHAEL: We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.” “Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only philosophy. “Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students. “Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy. “Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy. (note: Michael has said that most of their channels come from this category) “Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time. “Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid verbal channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself, herself, or our teachings. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us. These channels are most often noted for the valid and powerful "energy work" that is felt from us when working through them, even as the verbal channeling is lacking in clarity or accuracy. “Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material. In some cases, there are overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student. Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.
