  1. MMW - February 17, 2018 - Your Primary Guiding Emotion Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin our discussion with you about Emotions. This is a fairly complex and elaborate subject with a great deal of subjectivity and nuance, but what we will focus on today are the basic emotions that have become standard and universal in your means of processing experiences and moving these through the body into other forms, such as expression. Emotions are all about Inspiration, or the reflection of yourself from everything around you. Emotions are a means of learning about the self. Your Emotions tell you something about you. Feelings are the result of Emotions. Feelings are how Emotions... feel. It is the biological stimulation caused by Emotions. To delineate the tree of Emotions from root to current branches would require a dedicated session, so what we will focus on today are the primary Emotions that Humans have come to depend upon as a means of processing, reflection, and expression/communication. As a species evolves through its Soul Ages, the complexity of Emotions grows and gives rise to a myriad of Emotions that account for the nuances of experiences. Ironically, as the Soul Age moves into Old, the range of Emotions become simplified and the complexity is stripped from the processes. This is because the Old Soul has learned to transcend the programming of the body and has now gained eons of experience that have already been processed. However, until the planet and species is primarily Old, you will experience the myriad and complex range of Emotions, especially as the shift into Mature Soul Age is anchored. The Mature Soul Age is the pinnacle of complexity of Emotion. Keep in mind that Emotions are embedded in Biology. However complex or simple the range of Emotion, this library exists within the body of all Sentient creatures. Experiences trigger or activate the Emotion. Sentience has access to all Emotions over time and evolution. All life forms have access to at least one Emotion, but it is not until the Bird Kingdom that creatures begin to express Emotions as part of a process. It is of such wonder to be able to do so that the Bird Kingdom is overflowing with expression of Emotion, particularly in vocals. Though the Bird Kingdom is the first Kingdom to gain expressive access to emotional processes, they are built upon the familiar and functional range that is based in survival and mating. In other words, the Insect and Cold-Blooded Kingdoms may express an Emotion, but it tends to be only for survival or mating. At the very primal levels of your being, your own emotional processes rise from those same cores. As you evolve, these emotional processes could be translated into "when am I gonna get paid, and when am I gonna get laid?" Rising from these come a wider range of Emotions and as you have established yourself across time as Sentience in a body, you will navigate experiences using one or more of the following 7 Primary Emotions: ANGER, FEAR, SADNESS, CONTEMPT, SURPRISE, DISGUST, HAPPINESS Though there are tiers of Emotion that come before this tier, and more tiers beyond this tier, this particular tier is where most Humans process experiences and express these to others. You will carry all of these within you and each will be activated at some point because life tends to be filled with a range of experiences that activate your library of emotions. However, each of you will tend to have a "go to" Emotion, or a Primary Emotion for processing your experiences and gaining reflection into yourself. WORKSHOP QUESTION ONE - Before we continue with elaboration, we would ask each of you to consider which of these would seem to be your Primary Emotion based in how you understand the terms, yourself, your patterns, etc. as of now. This may change after we elaborate, but we invite you to consider the question now. Consider what Emotion not only threads its way through your days and years, but which one is often expressed to others as representing you. It may be helpful to choose TWO. We encourage honesty. Luciana: I think mine would be fear.. Sharvari: I think Sadness and Surprise. Wendymae: Anger and Sadness Bobby: I'm thinking : Happiness and Contempt Bobby: Wait, I'll amend that, Happiness and Surprise ClaireC: Surprise, happiness. Uma: Sadness and Surprise but they have changed over the years Maureen: Anger (on the wane), Sadness and Surprise (I like this one) As you may have guessed, these Emotions correspond to the Axes and by extension to the Roles. This is not to say that the Emotion defines the Roles, but the corresponding Emotion does tend to be at the core of how that Role navigates life in terms of drawing Inspiration. There are many other factors that can contribute to one's Primary Emotion and how one shifts around the range of Emotions. One is never "stuck" with an Emotion. SERVER = SADNESS Servers are highly tuned to the needs of others and the gap between that need and the fulfillment of that need so Sadness can become their Primary Emotion that guides and processes life. Because there will always be people in need, there will always be Sadness. Keep in mind that while these Emotions may have "positive" or "negative" connotations, they are neither good or bad or positive or negative. They simply ARE. It is much like saying that gray sky is bad while a blue sky is good. That differentiation is subjective and both colors are natural, normal, and part of the range of existence for the sky of Earth. Sadness is important and vital for the development of empathy and compassion. Sadness is not the same thing as Depression or Grief. Sadness is a choice. Depression and Grief are not. All Emotions are a choice. All Emotions can be chosen. It is important to point out here that you HAVE emotions. Emotions do not have you. Servers are not afraid of Sadness. They know that life hurts and can hurt. They know that one must allow room for Sadness because it reflects the process of healing hurts and recovering or creating that which is most needed. PRIESTS = DISGUST The greatest wars and revolutions have come about from the Emotion of Disgust. Disgust reflects what one most seeks to repair, fix, or change about something, or the self or others. Priests are keen at using Disgust as a Primary Emotion because they are willing to see themselves reflected in the ugliness of life and others. They are willing to take this on. It can be easy to forget that Disgust is a reflection of the self and its own blind spots and wounding and defenses. Disgust is often tied to being indignant and righteous, which are defenses against the inspirational depths that Disgust can bring if examined carefully. ARTISANS = ANGER At the heart of Anger is helplessness. Artisans find great inspiration in helplessness. This may sound strange, but it is what provokes their creativity, their sense of responsibility and ownership and presence in life. All Roles can feel helpless and Angry, but the Artisan learns quickly what to do about it. Create. Create systems, structure, order, and always remain on a friendly basis with chaos. NOTE: The Primary Emotion that we correlate to a Role does not mean that, for example, "ARTISANS ARE ANGRY." The correlation only indicates what tends to inspire or challenge that Role. What ends up being expressed may be a different Emotion. SAGES = CONTEMPT Sages embrace Contempt as it helps fuel critical thinking, criticism, differentiation, honesty, truth. Contempt inspires rebellion and unique expression. Contempt helps to point out where one needs to communicate more clearly and knowledgeably. Contempt can help one to learn about that which is most resisted. NOTE: as mentioned earlier, every Emotion is fairly neutral in itself, but there are ways that Contempt can be expressed in negative ways or positive ways, as with Anger and Sadness. How an Emotion is expressed does not change the core inspiration accessible through that Emotion. WARRIOR = FEAR The Warrior knows Fear. It is one of the first things he confronts as a Body. The Warrior can be guided by Fear as a means to comprehend the what and who and how of protection, direction, and correction. Warriors can have such a close relationship with Fear that it baffles them when others let it dictate their choices and actions. Fear reflects the unknown, the uncertain, and this may or may not require protection, direction, or correction. The Warrior knows that Fear is information and in the same way that one can fear a spider or be fascinated, it is not the spider that causes the fear, it is the uncertainty. KING = HAPPINESS The appeal of Happiness can often be the strongest for the King. All other Roles can often be happy with any taste of Happiness, but the King is often not happy until all conditions, people, and events are in place to fulfill Happiness on their terms. They can be the most unhappy of Roles. This is because Kings know that true Happiness is never about "settling." They are inspired to fulfill every detail of their expectations and desires for Happiness. This can often leave them quite comfortable in their "unhappiness" as they are not going to settle. They do not see a problem with this. SCHOLAR = SURPRISE Scholars navigate using curiosity and amazement, always experiencing Surprise at what is found next. Scholars always have expectations based on their experiences and when they meet up with the unexpected, there is Surprise. This may or may not always feel like a "good" thing. Surprise reflects the expectation of the unexpected. WORKSHOP QUESTION TWO: Though we will want to elaborate and expand on all of the above, we will ask you to consider your Role and Casting correlations with the above to see if your original assessment has changed. Do you see the Primary Emotion reflected in your Role and/or Casting? Uma: Yes. Fear and Disgust are very familiar to this Priest-cast Warrior. Luciana: Well I had already spoken fear Fear was always very obvious to me however I did not think it took me to protect anything .. It only made me feel paralyzed. ClaireC: Absolutely in my Role....Anger....not sure about that re my Casting. Luciana: Anger makes sense too. Bobby: I initially listed Contempt (Sage-casting) but changed it Wendymae: Yes, another Priest-cast Warrior here noting my intimate relationship with Fear and Disgust Sharvari: I'm a Priest-Cast Sage but neither Contempt nor Disgust seem applicable to me. The only contempt I feel is a contempt FOR the idea of contempt itself?? Sharvari: Happiness seems to fit much more than Sadness now though. Maureen: My original stands even though they don't relate to Priest or to Warrior... unless I'm missing something. Wendymae: I'm always trying to fix things and can't seem to not see how to improve things so really see my Priest casting there You may or may not find resonance with the correlations of Roles/Casting to Emotions. There are too many factors involved in a life to lock anyone into one Emotion as relative to a Role. Maureen: If I do have any DISGUST it quickly moves to SADNESS and ANGER feels more accurate than FEAR. SURPRISE is what I look forward to in a life of learning. I love learning I was "wrong" about something and can then "shift gears". Some of you may require some time to truly reflect upon what Primary Emotion guides you and is used to express and represent you to others. It can be helpful to have a trusted loved one act as a mirror for you. There is the Primary Emotion that guides you and then there is the Primary Emotion that you use to express yourself to others. For example, someone may not realize that Disgust is the guiding Emotion because Happiness is used as a way to relate to other. However, in many cases the guiding emotion and expressed emotions are the same. We will address some of the comments above. Luciana - yes, Fear can bring about paralysis until you experience Fear as information and not as accusation. Your Fear is protecting you by keeping you from taking action. You are prone to overthinking and would likely take rash or reactionary actions if you did not embrace the process of Fear. Fear is pointing out the uncertainty and unknown, not as a way to corner you, but as a way to help you shape and sustain your own boundaries on your own terms. Sit in your paralysis. Let it center you. Let it be where you are. Let yourself be right there in the middle of it and as you do this, you may begin to transform paralysis into centeredness. Then take action from there. For those who did not find resonance between the Role and Emotion, it is likely that parental imprinting or cultural imprinting helped to override the inherent correlation. Luciana: ok, thanks Sharvari: That makes so much sense Knowing your Primary Emotion in terms of guidance and expression can help you to understand in a more loving way the how and why of what inspires you and what you wish to inspire in others. It can help you to transform your traditional understanding of an Emotion and strip it of its bad reputation to find its beauty. It is not a "bad thing" to express Disgust as a Primary Emotion to others. This is your effort to inspire reconsideration and change. It is not a bad thing to be guided by Fear because this is how you learn how to recognize legitimate threats. Etc. However, all of these Emotions can also be used for harm to self or others. Inspiring Disgust for a race or gender or sexuality can be quite destructive. Being motivated by Happiness as a way to strip your life of every ounce of happiness can be quite destructive. The Emotions are TOOLS. How you use them and choose them is up to you. HOMEWORK - watch yourself over the next week and look at two things: how you most often react Emotionally to experiences, and what Emotion you use most often to relate/communicate to others. In addition the corresponding Roles to consider, these two patterns will reveal your Primary Emotion/s. As always, there is much more to be said about this subject. We will conclude here for today as this was a large pack of data for Troy to unpack. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
  2. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3)] [nemo999] What are the most common states of mind? Pleasure, pain, depression, sadness, happiness, attention, boredom … are these states of mind or are they illusion? [Michael_Entity] This set of descriptions are only conveniences to describe whatever a person interprets as their reality in the moment. They are highly subjective and can refer to either illusions or what you have called ‘states of mind.’ They are all ‘real’ to a person experiencing. The definition of ‘illusion,’ or Maya as we prefer, is in the apparent indulgence in a ‘truth’ that is subjectively inappropriate for the fragment. There are some Maya that are shared collectively, some that are individual. Despite the fact that Personal Truth will render all of these experiences “real”, we will share a little of our perception. Depression from your list can be considered a collective ‘illusion,’ and one that is a deep indulgence in Maya, though very ‘real’ when inside of it. Depression is a resigned stance toward the life, an emotional suicide based on one or more of the Chief Features. This is not a judgment. When one is in Depression, we differentiate this from Grief. Depression is literally the consistent and insistent effort to reject the life. If Depression is being experienced, acknowledge that you are where you are in your experience, and ask for help. Depression is one of many Maya that creates a situation where intervention from outside forces is required. Pain from your list can be either Maya or “real”, but is always a symptom of resistance or friction, which we do not see as inherently good or bad, merely resistance to some Growth. Pleasure is always a symptom of higher awareness and connection to Essence. Sadness can be either, though if tears are involved, recognition of a truth on some level is occurring. If there are no tears, this is most likely a form of Depression. Boredom is always a symptom of Maya and is a literal self-lie to remove responsibility. When Boredom is indulged in, you are living in a space of time that was created from want of “having more time”, then when it arrives, you seek to fill it. This all happens because creation on the Physical Plane is denser and slower, therefore the space and time sought “shows up”, but sometimes out of synch with your faster moving mind. Making a note that Boredom is a sign of forgetting your original intentions can help make more of that time. It is not required, of course, that you continue with your original intentions, but release the judgments about EXPERIENCING the slowing of time and take a moment to stop. When we say this is a self-lie to remove responsibility, we mean this in terms of being able to respond, not in terms of discipline.
  3. From a Personal Open Floor session - Jan. 18, 2012 [EricM]: This may be a broad question, but any insight would be cool [EricM]: I’ve been curious about the connections between human consciousness (or its shifts and patterns) and weather systems/the environment. On TLE, there have been some channeling tidbits that suggest some kind of connection or interaction. For example, one energy report said, “In a Higher Centered year, or a Moving Centered year, there tends to be greater emphasis on the Physical Plane patterns of weather as reflective of the collective consciousness.” [EricM]: There’s also the idea of various kinds of consciousness (such as those of devas, planets, etc). Can you elaborate on consciousness as related to earth’s weather/environmental systems and how human sentience interacts with it/influences it? [MEntity]: As Sentience evolves with a planet over time, the various elements of an environment, weather systems, ecosystems, etc begin to take a part in being a language for the subconscious of that Sentience. [MEntity]: This is made more significant by the effects those elements have on the bodies. [MEntity]: This is really no different from how every individual fragment processes his or her own thoughts, feelings, and actions as they play out through the "weather" of the individual body. [MEntity]: Whereas the health of an individual body could be said to be the "weather" of an individual, the actual weather of a geographical region could be said to be the health of that collective consciousness. [MEntity]: People choose, or gravitate toward, or "end up" in regions where the weather and climate most accurately reflect the processes that are important for that individual at the time, or for the lifetime. [MEntity]: In the same way that the individual body is the densest reflection of less-dense processes, so is the weather the densest reflection of the less-dense collective processes. [EricM]: Is this something that reflection can be interpreted? For example, "the drought here in Texas is possibly symptomatic of X" [MEntity]: Yes. We will get to that in a moment. [EricM]: lol k :) [MEntity]: Because weather and health are the densest levels of processing, they are also "slower" in acting as reflections of inner processes. [MEntity]: So, for instance, one's "cold" is indicative of processes that may no longer be obviously-relevant to the conscious mind, as the events have passed, but the processes continue. [MEntity]: And so the weather for a region may be reflective of past processes of that population. [MEntity]: That "delay" in reflection is different for different regions and peoples. [MEntity]: On an individual basis, this is often linked to Frequency. [MEntity]: On a collective basis, this is often linked to whatever has become the most-dominant common denominator among those people, such as Soul Age, Frequency, Body Types, Chief Features, etc. [MEntity]: As mentioned before, the symbolic language of climate and weather does have meaning that can be interpreted to some extent. [MEntity]: To start with your example, Eric, we can say that any weather or climate that is dry tends to be linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: When that dryness moves into extremes of drought, it is often indicative of Intellectual processes that have lost all capacity to bear fruit, bring a harvest, etc. This may seem too literal, but that is the simplicity of symbolism. [MEntity]: When fire then comes into play, it is now a matter of Defensiveness that has become consuming of the Intellect. [EricM]: interesting [Martha]: Eric, I think Michael has nailed our region [EricM]: no kidding [MEntity]: Wind is also linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: And in some areas, such as "tornado alley," this is where the Intellect is reflected as being the most confused. [MEntity]: Cold climates are also linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: Water is linked to the Emotions, of course. [MEntity]: So areas that are prone to flooding are often areas where those fragments are working out their overflowing, or powerful emotional processes. [MEntity]: Something like a hurricane, then, is often generated among those who are processing the powerful combinations of Intellect and Emotions. [MEntity]: We will point out here that it is not that a region "creates" or "chooses" a hurricane, for example, but that collective processes of emotions and intellect may tend to generate these as byproducts. [EricM]: as one does not necessarily choose an illness, but it gets generated by choices made [MEntity]: In areas where there is little change in weather, or no distinct shift in Seasons, it can often be an area where people have chosen to emphasize exploration and processing of whatever that particular region is emphasizing symbolically. [MEntity]: What we would have to do is dedicate an entire session to this topic, and map out the various symbolic reflections of environment and weather, and describe some regional details as examples. [EricM]: that would be fine, it's just good to have a few points to start with
  4. December 6, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Centers and Body Types Note from Janet: Although the intent for the topic was Centers and Body Types, no discussion of Body Types occurred. [Michael_Entity] We are here. Hello to all of you. We will begin with the Energy Report as we see it for the weeks of December 9 through the 22nd. It is, of course, not a coincidence that many of you have begun discussing the properties and personal experiences of the Centers, as many of you are shifting into next year’s basic Centering at this time. Though a year’s “Overleaves” are not defined entirely and are not static at any given time, there is an overall set that does appear to have influence over varying levels of consciousness, at least symbolically. In the case of Older Souls, that set of influences can begin to take place in the few months before the new year. We will also note an unusual phenomenon that is occurring for all of you: currently, in such a short time span between them, another larger Nexus Shift occurs. It is not uncommon for great shifts to occur throughout a year, but another shift is beginning on the 10th, and another in January/February, while this is all following the large shift in November. These shifts with little “breaks” between them are creating a great amount of shifting in levels of Energy among your Overleaves and your ability to participate in the world. There appear to be distinct days when your energy seems quite inspired and above normal, while the next few will find you seeming to be locked in an infinite stream of constricting thoughts and low energy. For some this will feel like “limbo,” while for others this can feel “manic.” The Center for the next year, at this time, appears to be Moving, with bursts of Higher Moving. Unless you are Moving Centered, yourself, this is going to begin to feel like a time of shifting into OBVIOUS manifestations of what you are DOING. (We remind you that our Energy Reports are not predictions, they are merely comments on patterns and how you might be able to use them or dismiss them.) Having a field of Moving Centered Energy as the context for a period of time can mean a great deal of attention would be coming to the body and its relationship to its environment. We are speaking of its Physical environment, which can translate into a range from its sources of stimulation, affection, and activity, to its ability to use the finer energies that make up and create the Physical Plane. Some of you may begin to pull out your old copies of teachings which focus on the concepts of “creating your own reality” and take a more active approach to reality than usual. While others may begin to feel overwhelmed by the “responsibility” that the Moving Centers imply while Physical. Besides the fact of what you call “the holidays,” a stronger and stronger desire to be with those whom you care for and feel part of will begin to be a priority. If these basic trends continues and the next year continues with the Moving Centered theme, we will be able to comment more accurately on how it might manifest. For now, a primary theme appears to be those points we just mentioned, along with a heightened awareness of your food intake and ability to literally move (health). We will conclude the report here and take any questions about it before we discuss the Centers. [Kathryn] Many of us, myself included, have been feeling very drained and tired or just down lately. Is this the reaction to this energy report influence? [Michael_Entity] We don't believe the Energy Report itself has any influence as such, but the Energy, itself, we are reporting about may very well be what you are responding/reacting to. For those who have any kind of health deficiencies, however minute, the Moving Center will markedly “force” the body into a position that is more inclined to facilitate recovery. This can be sleep, mental distraction, high activity, anger, etc., but it’s point is to facilitate recovery. Another important factor to consider is the inherent nature of any Nexus having a sedating effect on the Human body as realities shift and creativity on another level is affecting the body. You do “create reality,” and that still uses energy. Most of the time, that energy is being held preciously by the Personality for reasons it doesn't even understand. The sedation and “tired phase” allows the “grip” to loosen and your reality can then free up some energy for changes to be made. Most of you have your Personalities quite in charge of your lives, even if it doesn't quite “know” what to do. When a shift is needed and the Personality is choosing to work with Essence, the Personality will gladly concede and “take a nap.” At some point, in some lifetime, a shift will happen wherein the Personality and Essence are aligned enough that control is not shifted from one to the other, but is shared. If there are no other questions on the Energy Report, we will discuss CENTERING. We feel there is no need to introduce the Centering to you, as many of you are already fairly studied in this area of our teaching. We will, however, respond to all of your questions about this area so as to clarify and help with the application of the information. [MaryBV] How does centering affect memory? [Michael_Entity] ALL Centers have their form of Memory in storage and retrieval. The Intellect stores and retrieves memory in the form of Thoughts, Ideas, and is Visually interpreted. The Emotional memories are stored and retrieved in the form what are commonly understood as Feelings, Emotions, and are Aurally interpreted. The Moving stores and retrieves its memories in the forms of Health, Activity, and are Sensually interpreted. Each Center does affect how events are remembered; especially in the mixture of the Centering with the Part. The Intellect affects the memory with its level of beliefs and justifications; the Emotions affect memory with its sentimentality and attachments; the Moving affects the memory through its levels of vitality and productivity at the time. For each of these examples above, they are only part of how each Center may affect memory, and those factors always stem from the PRESENT (retrieval), not how or what was stored. Each Center is involved in Memory, of course, but the habitual Centering will affect how a fragment's memory is used habitually. Each Ordinal Center is referencing memory of the current lifetime and physicality. If more information outside of that realm is required or resonating, it is then drawn through the Higher of that Center. The Instinctive Center is the communication medium between the Cardinal and Ordinal. Since the Instinct/Assimilation is usually maintaining the task of protection of the body, most memory filtered there is decidedly fearful or not. This is why most long-standing memories are either decidedly joyful or painful. We can continue to extrapolate on this topic, but we will ask if we are answering your question appropriate to your intent. [MaryBV] Well, I should have asked also how the role plays into this, but that is probably a topic for a whole discussion. [Michael_Entity] The Roles play little part in how memory is used or affected, since each lifetime sets a new design for the body and the Body/Personality is the tool for memory. The Essence's choice of Overleaves is the most direct impact. Since Time is not a factor for Essence, it does not have the need for “memory” as it is experienced on the Physical Plane. [MaryBV] I see, so what accounts for smell/taste, etc., in memory? [Michael_Entity] Every Cell and Atom in your body has the ability to “remember,” which means it has the ability to re-create. When the Personality or Body calls on a memory to be reconstructed, it will call on these minute parts of self to participate. It is of no mystery that you can recall a scene in a movie, which is Visual, but it is no more a mystery for the other senses to have that ability to reconstruct, as well. [WickedBear] Could you discuss the fundamental differences between the two action centers? [Michael_Entity] The most fundamental difference is in that the Ordinal pertains to the immediate environment of the Personality and Body, while the Cardinal pertains to all that encompasses that. The Moving Center, then, would govern and process the events of the actual, Physical Body and its health, activity, manipulation of environment, etc. The Higher Moving Center would then govern and process those similar things, but as they pertain to larger patterns that include everything pertaining to the Essence. It could be said that the Moving Center is the manifestation/expression of that particular Personality's part in the Higher Moving tapestry of the Essence. [Elf] Is the Part of Center chosen about the same time as the Centering? And what is most influential in that choice? [Michael_Entity] Centering is chosen by the age of 3 in most cases, while the Part/Trap is a habit by the age of 7 (approximately). The most influential aspect of that choice is in the major theme then settled on for the lifetime as to how to process events. The Center/Part becomes the Body's primary strength and challenge, and sets the stage for relationships, health, and beliefs for the majority of the life. Depending on your Centering and Part, you will find that your PART/TRAP becomes the defining obstacle to hurdle in coming to peace with a lifetime. If the balance can be called upon for any Center, regardless of habit, then a great freedom is experienced within the lifetime. The first examination of this is in the 4th Internal Monad when the Part is either simply a Part, or continues to be the Trap. Most will find as the life progresses that the Part becomes the Trap, the more they ignore the need for that third Center to be incorporated. As part of the process for finding that balance, the neglected Center will eventually require attention. For those lacking in the Moving Center, then health, prosperity, material security, physical need for affection and validation can become stages for its balance. For those lacking in the Intellectual Center, then over-questioning, overwhelm, isolation, indecisiveness, and unacknowledged dependence on others for direction are examples of where the imbalance can show up. For those lacking in the Emotional Center, then alienation, hypercriticism, unacknowledged issues of rejection, can tend to be some of the arenas for balance. [Elf] Thank you. So the Part/Trap of Center is then somewhat a part of the Life Task? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the Centering/Part are intrinsically linked to the Tasks of the Life. Centering habits tend to define how the Personality uses its 4 “pillars,” of which the Life Task (True Work), is one of those pillars. Your True Rest is directly linked to the use of your neglected Center. Your True Work is directly relating to the Goal. The Centering/Part is not inherently a challenge to your Life Task, but it is a powerful definition of the path. And with that, we will conclude. Good Night.
  5. Michael Speaks Live Online "Seven Emotions" March 23, 2014 (3 Hour Session) Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] We understand the topic of focus is that of the Emotions. First, as you explore the concept of Emotions, we will point out that "feelings" and Emotions are not, technically, the same things. They are so interconnected that they are often considered the same thing, but for the sake of the topic today, it will be helpful to understand that the "feeling" aspect is a bodily reaction/response to the energy that is Emotion. Emotions are more like a surge of energy, a kind of electricity, if you will, and your processing of that is what you call "feelings." All Emotions originate from the Emotional Center. These are then distributed, or processed, through the Parts of that Center, which funnels the energy into the other Centers relative to the Part. So, for example, if an Emotion is a Moving Part Emotion, it still originates from the Emotional Center, is processed by the Moving Part, and directed toward the Moving Center then. We will return to this circuitry a bit later. All Emotions Are Personal -- Only About Oneself Because all Emotions are of the Emotional Center, this means they are always related to ORDINAL INSPIRATION. This means that all Emotions are personal, and they are either a result of PROJECTION or REFLECTION. Emotions are personal (ordinal) in that they only ever tell you about YOU. Emotions never tell you anything about anyone other than yourself. Ever. It is an information circuitry that is entirely unique to you, about you, and is all about your collection of experiences, organized in layers of time, and that are then used to measure against your current experiences. All of this is a form of navigation. This is all true whether one is Emotionally-Centered, or not. When one is Emotionally-Centered, it simply means this form of navigation is relied upon far more than the other two forms (Intellectual and Moving). All fragments will have all three forms inherent to the incarnation, of course No matter how provoked, your Emotions are informing you about you; not the other person or even the event. When we say that they are "informing you about you, we mean that they are sifting through your collection of experiences over time and comparing the current experience to a past one for reference. If you have a painful experience in your records, a current experience might trigger that painful association and the current experience will be regarded as painful, even if it may not be painful. Because Emotions are Inspirational, they are LOADED with POTENTIAL. They are not reality. They only speak to the potential of a reality. So, for instance, this reference to a painful experience from the past is only meant to suggest that the current experience MIGHT BE painful, too. It is not meant to tell you that your current experience IS painful. And therein lies the difference between PROJECTION and REFLECTION. Projection is a reactionary processing of Emotions that presume that what is "felt" is the conclusive truth. If you feel it, it must be true. That is that. This is Projection. This is why we continue to remind our students that Emotions are not the truth. In a sense, Emotions are ALWAYS about the PAST. So the truth that you "feel" is about the past, not the present or the future. This is not a bad thing or a good thing, it is simply how Emotion functions. Even the best of how you feel is a product of the past. For example: you may find that the watching of the setting Sun is one that brings joy. But this is because it is not your first sunset. First sunsets for many fragments (in those early lifetimes) was terrifying. The world was plunged into darkness and new creatures emerged in that darkness, and nothing was ever the same again. Until the morning, of course. But then it would happen again. This was terrifying. Eventually, enough experience with sunsets brings Trust, and it is known that the Sun has not died, and it will rise again in the morning. To be clear, this Trust still cannot speak to the TRUTH. It can only speak to experience. MORE THAN LIKELY the sun will rise, and MORE THAN LIKELY the sun has not died, but there may very well come a night that never ends. As you can see, Trust then becomes an important Emotion for navigating because one cannot constantly fight and fear a sunset. If there comes a day when the sun does not rise, you will deal with that. Until then, you live as if the sun will rise again, because you Trust that it will, and you Trust that it will because you have enough experience to do so. This is no different in processing when it comes to relationships. It is fair to be wary of new relationships if one has experienced pain in one or more. Your Emotions are telling you to be careful, and that another round of relating COULD result in another round of pain. But, remember, Emotions are not the truth. They are only referencing your experience, and your experience, while your own, is not a constant. You lived in terror for years, afraid that the sun may not rise again. That fear and pain and terror was real. It is fair to be wary as the night falls again. But your fear, pain, and terror are not a constant, because you continue to gather experiences. And as your days are found to be filled over and over again, despite the terrors that the night will come, you begin to note this and grow from it, and face each day and night with Trust. The same is true of your relationships. The fear and pain and terror of your losses when a relationship ends or departs from expectations can make the next relationship seem a breeding ground for more terror, fear, and pain. But a new relationship is like a new day. IT WILL END. AND YOU WILL NOT. And just like the passing of days, you will find that relationships, like your days and nights, are uniquely filled with what you put into them, and are not defined by their beginning and "end." This is REFLECTION, then. PROJECTION is when you impose your past on an experience, relationship, or event. REFLECTION is when you learn from your past, but allow the greatest potential of the present or future. What we have shared, so far, is how Emotions function, how they are processed, what they are for, and what they mean. Though there many words to describe Emotions and how one feels, all Emotions can be traced back to one of seven basic Emotions, or as a combination of two or more of these basic Emotions. Those SEVEN BASIC EMOTIONS are: TRUST, DISGUST, ANTICIPATION, SADNESS, JOY, ANGER, SURPRISE. Trust is of the Instinctive Part. Anticipation is of the Higher Emotional Part. Joy is of the Higher Intellectual Part. Surprise is of the Higher Moving Part. Disgust is of the Emotional Part. Sadness is of the Intellectual Part. Anger is of the Moving Part. FEAR is not an Emotion, technically, anymore than Truth is or Love or Energy, in any technical sense. Many "emotions" that are referenced by other terms are combinations of the above, either in negative or in positive pole combinations. None of these Emotions are bad or good, but all can be experienced in beneficial or harmful ways. QUESTIONS Before we break down these Emotions into polarities, we will open the floor to any questions relative to what we have shared so far. [DianeHB] What IS Fear, if not an emotion? [MEntity] Fear is a "feeling," a secondary response or reaction to the processes of Emotions of Anger and Surprise. Fear, then, could be said to be the body's reaction of protection against negative experiences relative to Anger and Surprise. Keep in mind that the entire concept of Fear is one that is far more insidious and pervasive than this simplified version we speak of. We are speaking of Fear in terms of Emotions here, but we may speak of fear in larger terms in other discussions. But for the point of discussion regarding Emotion, Fear is often that bodily reaction to protections against all that is related to negative experiences of Anger and Surprise. In broader terms, it could be said that Fear is also the bodily response to all of these Emotions in their negative poles. [Juni] I am wondering about the difference between feelings/emotions and intuition. If feelings/emotions only ever tell you about oneself, how do you distinguish that from a "feeling" about another? [MEntity] Intuition is different from Emotions. Again, these are often presumed to be the same things, which is why many who use "intuition" are merely guided by a maze of emotions, and not insights. This is not a bad thing in the end, because when "intuition" is thought to be a process of navigating Emotionally, it can still be helpful, since Emotions always lead one back to the self. This can be just as important as guiding one outwardly. However, to more directly respond to your question, one's "feelings" about another person can still be useful, even if those feelings or Emotions are informing one about the self. It simply means that one has owned the feeling as one's own, and not as having originated from another person. If a person "makes you feel good," it is informing you as to how you feel about that person, but it is not necessarily how anyone else might feel about that person. And it only tells you how you feel about that person RIGHT NOW, not about how you will feel about that person in the future. All of this speaks to your past as a reference, too. If you meet someone and presume that your good feelings are the truth about that person, you have immediately cut yourself out of the picture as a source of those good feelings. This is often the case when "falling in love." Presuming that these Emotions and feelings are sourced by someone else means that there will likely come a day that the other is then blamed for less pleasant feelings. This becomes problematic for relating to someone because then the emphasis shifts away from how you contribute to your range of emotions and feelings, and the emphasis shifts toward how to get the other person to make you feel the way you had expected to feel. So there is no real differentiation here. Your feelings about a person are your own, and are not the truth about another person. There is a big difference between "I feel good" and "You make me feel good." Intuition, however, is another topic, and it is a synthesis of input from all of your senses so that comprehension can be gained. [ViP1] Hi Michael. I've read in psychology articles that insufficient contact or interaction (as an infant) with one's mother (or perhaps both parents) in the form of touch, and responses to facial and other cues, can inhibit peoples' abilities to recognize and describe their emotions (or perhaps, feelings?) And hence, leading to difficulties in dealing with them (emotions - or perhaps feelings, I'm not sure which based on your earlier distinction between them. Probably feelings.) Would you say that there is validity to this, and if so, if someone has had this experience in early life, how the processing circuitry is affected (and if possible, tips on how to rectify it, ie, recognize and process emotions effectively?) [MEntity] Any issues with care taking during the first 7 years can affect the Instinctive Part and, therefore, affect one's TRUST. Trust is reset in every lifetime, but how one is handled, treated, nurtured, born, etc. can skew that function so that it has some range of challenges. All Emotions are reset in every lifetime. But as one progresses through the Internal Monads, these Emotions are explored in a way that locks them into Projection or frees them into Reflection. These are not tied to the Internal Monads in a way that leaves an Internal Monad unfinished if the Emotion is not freed, but there do tend to be periods of the life where the various Emotions are emphasized in exploration. For example, Trust is explored and emphasized between the 1st and the 2nd Internal Monad. The 1st and 2nd Internal Monads can be successfully closed, even if Trust is not freed, but there is a rather high correlation to the level of trust vs distrust that one has in relation to whether one has completed those Internal Monads. In other words, there does TEND to be a much higher level of distrust among those who have not successfully closed their 2nd Internal Monad. DISGUST is explored and emphasized from the 2nd Internal Monad all the way through the 3rd Internal Monad. This is why you will find your toddlers to teens emphasizing this in ways that can be repellent and difficult. ANTICIPATION is explored during these, as well. Whereas SADNESS and JOY are explored and emphasized during the 4th Internal Monad. While ANGER and SURPRISE are explored and emphasized during the 5th Internal Monad. This is not to say that these Emotions do not exist as emphasis at any other time. We did not say that, nor did we imply that. But it is to say that those stages tend to be when those particular Emotions come to be truly resolved and freed, or locked into a more restricted state. Speak to a fragment who is successfully navigating the 5th Internal Monad and you will speak to someone who has all but lost the charge of Anger as a form of helplessness, and has freed it to become a form of motivation. Emotions as Polarities This may be a good segue into these Emotions as polarities. Think of the poles below as describing the Emotion as restricted or freed, and therefore more subject to Projection vs Reflection. TRUST as restricted might be FOOLISH/DISTRUST, and freed as CONFIDENCE/AWARENESS DISGUST as restricted might be CAUSTIC/LOATHSOME and freed as HUMOROUS/PREFERENCE Keep in mind that our polarities here are not necessarily emotions. These are merely adjectives to help understand the spectrum of that particular Emotion. SADNESS is restricted as PATHETIC/SELF-PITY and freed as GRIEF/HONESTY. ANGER is restricted as DEPRESSION/BLAME, and freed as MOTIVATION/PURPOSE. ANTICIPATION is restricted as AGITATION/DISDAIN, and freed as ENTHUSIASM/CONSIDERATION. [ViP1] Michael, just to confirm, you are giving negative poles first, then positive, as usual (eg, ENTHUSIASM: -ve, /CONSIDERATION: +ve?) [MEntity] What we are sharing with the two terms for each pole is the branching that the restriction or freeing can show up as. For instance, some restrictive Trust shows up much more like Foolishness or blind faith than as Distrust. But Foolishness and Distrust are fair ranges to include how the Freed end would show up. JOY is restricted as OBNOXIOUS/SELF-INDULGENT, and freed as INCLUSIVE/INVITING SURPRISE is restricted as RESISTANCE/DISREGARD, and freed as ADAPTIVE/PLAYFUL. To bring further correlation, it could be said that these Emotions are more inherently explored and emphasized in various Essence Roles, as well, though this is certainly in no strict sense of delineation. Scholars - Trust; Servers - Disgust; Artisans - Sadness; Warriors - Anger; Priests - Anticipation; Sages - Joy; Kings - Surprise. These inherent Emotions might be said to be a long-term spectrum for each Role to truly comprehend from its worst to its best. Furthermore, one COULD look at one's overleaves and "translate" his or her profile to show how the Personality might be emphasizing certain Emotions as exploration and emphasis. For example, if one has a greater emphasis down the Moving Axis, one might be exploring the wide range of Anger and how this is both debilitating and motivating. QUESTIONS We will open the floor for 2 or 3 final questions. We think we have covered a good amount on the subject of Emotions tonight, and these can be further explored in other exchanges with us. [Tyrant] Do each of the emotion types when blocked or repressed (or stuck in negative poles) have certain types of illness/ailments to them that manifest/what are they? as in, are there consistent patterns in types of ailments [MEntity] Yes, there can be. However, by the time most ailments are showing Physical symptoms, it is often a mix of two or more Emotions that have remained restricted. We can delineate these in another exchange. We would, first, want to share how illnesses/ailments can be broken down into 7, before correlating. If there are no more questions, we will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you
