    Energy Report: AUGUST 2009

    July marked the rather awkward, yet enthusiastic, leap into the exploration of the Attitude for the year, which is IDEALIST. Most entered July on a wave of Passion generated over the previous 3 months of April, May, and June in which Passion, symbols, and identity were explored, shaken, and some left behind, making way for a sense of renewal in the months ahead. Many of you welcomed the energy of encouragement for improvement and betterment by your own standards. But it appears to us that, for many, August has "fallen flat" in its sense of promise and improvement. At best, most of our students appear to be in a state of Inertia, the negative pole of this year's Goal of Flow. At worst, a quiet, deep (and for some, a secret) disappointment has sprung within and August has turned into a sensation of weight that must simply be endured, worked through, processed. We say "at best and at worst" only for convenience as a way of describing one end of the spectrum as being fairly distracting, similar to the rowing of a boat upstream, whereas the other end off the spectrum is still a sensation of going upstream, but with a dragging anchor to contend with, as well. If these states are familiar to you, it is more than likely a familiar case of Naivety, the negative pole of Idealism. Your standards set high, your expectations set high, your enthusiasm set high, and as August has unfolded, you have discovered the depth of effort between what you envisioned and where you are. It is not uncommon. Setting your vision high, igniting your enthusiasm, and then either feeling as if you are falling short within a limited time, or simply incapable of fulfilling that vision, can cause a sense of crash and burn, or at the very least, a sense of running in place. For some of our students, this collapse in enthusiasm has come because of that perceived gap between what is envisioned and where one is, but for others it has come because life has thrown you a curve "just when you were ready to dive in to your improvement," or so it seems. What we would suggest to those who feel this inertia and weight is to realize that this is exactly a part of your process. Often this collapse of enthusiasm can be consuming, which can then lead to the relinquishing of all concern, but it does not have to be. The entire point of the collapse was proportional to your passion and intent to improve life and fulfill a vision. What is often not understood about the intent to improve the life is that when that intent is genuine, then the improvement is genuine. When improvement is genuine, it is a rooting that must take place, and when something new is planted in place something that was no longer growing or nurturing you, then that old rooting is uprooted. You are in the uprooting phase of your passionate effort to improve upon your life toward your ideal. What has come up as far back as the beginning of July for some, and for most during the last week of July through this second week of August, are pivotal experiences that will change you in ways that experiences have rarely changed you, if you choose to reap the lessons that have been be brought to bear. It would be safe for us to say that if your end of July through August 15th have been less than spectacular, less than fulfilling, less than fruitful, and quite frankly more than disappointing, more than disheartening, and more than distracting from your enthusiastic vision, then you were more than likely deeply sincere in your intent to make this year "count" as a pivotal year in your self-development and direction, and that you may be missing the point of what has come to the surface during these past weeks. Some of you may find that our description of disappointment and distraction to be too familiar for it to stand out as being anything new, so we will leave it to you to intuit the validity of what we describe. For some, the experience we describe above may be a repetitive pattern, or for others, the description is too vague. We can only say that for those who are experiencing the process of enthusiasm and intention for a pivotal year toward an ideal, what we describe will hit home. An aside: Keep in mind that we describe in our energy reports the patterns that are most noticeable and have the greatest momentum, much like the kind of weather report your geographical area is generating. This weather, if it actually manifests, is valid for anyone participating in it, i.e. having to travel in it, walk in it, etc, but may only be peripheral for others who are in a climate-controlled room, or focused intently on matters that do not take them "outside." The same could be said about the energy reports and those "out in the weather" vs those who are not, so to speak. For those who might not relate to any given report, a different report would have to be given to them, relative to that person's specific world at the time. For those who do relate to this report, we would suggest going back to read our February Report, focusing on the dynamics of FLOW. We would also suggest letting your disappointments, heartaches, grief, disorientation, weight, distraction, and disheartening moments give you the seeds of change that have come from the uprooting, or the displaying, or the glaring redirection needed for you to fulfill your visions, to honor your ideals. The information, wisdom, trust, and gifts are there. We do not say this to be poetic. It is simply true, or at least it is true that you do have the capability and strength for extracting the meaning from your recent experiences in a way that the experience becomes information, wisdom, trust, or a gift. [Note: The February 2009 Energy Report is apparently lost.] We would like to add a word about Enlightenment, as we play this Position within many of our students' Support Circle: We will first say that "enlightenment" is simply a building of a structure through which one can make sense of life. It is not a goal, nor is it a state, so much as it is a natural ingredient in the process of evolution. Even your "a-HA!" moments are not moments of enlightenment, so much as they are punctuations in the book of enlightenment you write with your experiences. One of the greater steps of enlightenment, and one that is taken over and over across many lifetimes, is the submersion into experiences that are overwhelming, deeply disappointing, painfully disheartening, defeating, or distracting, and finally grasping the truth that you are allowed to feel what you feel when you are in those experiences; that you are allowed to be overwhelmed, disappointed, disheartened, distracted, and to feel defeated; that to fight these feelings, to ignore them, to shame them, to contain them, to color them with pleasantries, to rise above them, etc. only leads to addictions, sedation, therapy, and other methods of securing False Personality at the gates of life to protect you from either feeling anything associated with these experiences, or to protect you from others seeing that you are feeling anything associated with these experiences. We would call this "Endarkenment." Endarkenment is not opposite to Enlightenment, but are much like Hate and Love. Hate is not the opposite of Love, it is a misunderstanding and distortion of Love, or, in other words, both are descriptions of a kind of intimacy. In that same way, both Enlightenment and Endarkenment are attempts to make sense of life, but Endarkenment is a delusion, a distortion of the structure that helps make sense of life, and often an angry insistence of the meaning of things as if this may never change. And so it is that many of you have stumbled upon your Endarkenment, holding up to the surface of your life what it is that you have insisted is true about your life, that contradicts your passionate higher vision, your ideal. For some of you this is quite dramatic, and for others of you this may simply be a bitter undertone in your days, but you will recognize what we describe if this has been the case for you in the past 6 weeks or so, and for some of you, this has not yet happened for you. If you are one who has set out this year to make this a pivotal year, we would say that it is likely that you would be stumbling upon your own Endarkenment in the weeks to come, and this information may be of help. August has no significant global or community shifts, but it appears to us that many of our students have fairly profound sets pivotal days within the month of August. Again, though it is unusual for us to emphasize this in such a way, those of you who understand this report, will understand so with a clarity that further validates our resonance with you as students. We rarely remind you of this, particularly for the sake of our position as a teacher, and for the sake of exemplifying the valid weight of such words when said with full presence; and though it is not unheard of that we say this when we feel it most important and appropriate, we do wish to say now that it is true that you are not alone, that we do care, and that it is true that we love you. We do not share our teaching flippantly. Most of you who work with us for any length of time are not doing so as a novelty. We have a relationship with you, and that can often be forgotten in the intellectual emphasis of our teaching. But our higher perspective does not exempt us from these sensitive states of resonance with you, it simply allows us to know love for you more profoundly than we can express within the sentimental distortions of language. We do not bring all of this up randomly, of course, but to speak to some of our students who will have stumbled upon a stage of Endarkenment. The words we share in this report that would normally have been seen as uncharacteristic of our communication, will probably be heard more clearly than usual without contradiction to our usual communication. Endarkenment, as it gives way to Enlightenment, can often open one up to a great sensitivity and clarity of true communication, stripped of sentimentality, pleasantries, and other False Personality tendencies, not only between yourself and others, but between Personality and Essence, and beyond. In the same way that our words expressing resonance with you may be heard more clearly, so it is that many of you may find in the weeks to come, a heightened renewal of contact and clarity with your own guides and support groups, both physical and non-physical. [note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.]
  2. Michael Speaks Live January 26, 2014 Elaboration of Overleaves for 2014 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. [MEntity] We understand the subject to be that of an elaboration on the Overleaves that we described as representing 2014. February 2014 Energy Report [MEntity] What we will do is begin with the "Energy Report" for February before elaborating further. [MEntity] As January comes to a close, there appears to be a new burst of energy available for most of our students. This is a burst of enthusiasm, creativity, optimism, literal energy, and motivation. [MEntity] This is because the Goal has now come to focus as an emphasis, and the weight of the Chief Features of the previous year have lifted for most. [MEntity] The Goal of Growth is the Goal for this year, and this would bring with it an emphasis on challenging yourselves, and moving you in directions away from any stagnation that may have been in place in some way in the life. [MEntity] The Goal of Growth is all about the process of bringing/creating/generating MEANING from your experiences. This is why it can seem so challenging and stretches the individuals who have this as a Goal in the Personality. It impels one to look beyond the superficial nature of an experience, relationship, event, and the self and into the greater value and point of those things. [MEntity] We know that many associated Growth with physical activity and challenges, but that is only one form of Growth. Growth is NOT an Action Goal. It is an Inspiration Goal. It has never been about Action, but because experience is most often cultivated by participation in the world and with people, it tends to lean toward experiences that involve Action. However, it is about the value and meaning that one extracts from that. In a year when Growth is in place, our students will tend to feel as if these are years when there are leaps in evolution, the Positive Pole, if the work of extracting Meaning is nurtured, but it can also be a year when there is a great deal of Confusion, an overwhelming state of non-direction and non-meaning because there is too much being processed. [MEntity] So February would appear to be that tipping point, if you will, toward this dance between Evolution and Confusion, depending upon how much one has taken on for processing. [MEntity] The amount one has taken on for processing at the beginning of this year appears to be dependent upon on how much was resisted in the past 2 or 3 years. [MEntity] If one has been moving along for the past 2 or 3 years at a pace that is avoiding or evading a sense of evolution and progress, dismissing the need for processing experiences, then 2014 might start off with a sense of overwhelm and Confusion, a "tsunami" of backlogged processing to be addressed. [MEntity] If one has been moving along for the past 2 to 3 years at a pace that has allowed for value and meaning to be extracted from various experiences, relationships, etc. and has not avoided the processes necessary for the sense of evolving, then 2014 will probably launch into a strange and beautiful wave of highly-active Astral explorations and "jam-packed" dreaming. [MEntity] Even if those dreams are not remembered, there would tend to be a sense that the dream state was highly active. [MEntity] This emphasis in the Astral and dreaming is directly linked to the fact that because one has dealt fairly well with the Physical Plane and its processes, then the work of Growth is happening in the Emotional/Inspirational body. This is why many of you may then be feeling this lift, this relief, and revitalized sense of enthusiasm and playfulness as February comes. [MEntity] In addition to this, because the year is Centered in the Intellect, most will feel a comfort and enthusiasm for sharing what is happening in the Emotional body, in dreams, in the Astral, in their Evolution, and even in their experiences of Confusion. [MEntity] So as February unfolds, we suggest to our students to "hold on to your hat," and "enjoy the ride," as the month will likely feel as if it speeds up and has high potential for great laughs, exchanges of inspiration, sharing of experiences, and authentic joy, even for those in Confusion. [MEntity] Helpful Thoughts over February might be: [MEntity] YES. THIS IS MY LIFE. [MEntity] The emphasis in that phrasing can be moved around to bring about different effects. YES! This is my life. or Yes. THIS is my life. or Yes. This IS my life. or Yes. This is MY life. or Yes. This is my LIFE! [MEntity] The phrasing with the emphasis that is most inspiring and acting as a reminder that you are the one who owns this life, and that you are the one who manages it, and that you are the one who has the power of choice in it, and that you are the one with the capacity for problem solving, creativity, and for extracting joy, playfulness, and MEANING from it. ...is the phrasing that you can use to remind you that you are the creator and navigator of this life. [MEntity] We caution against using any phrasing with emphasis that feels as if it is mocking and evasive of your responsibilities for choice and processes. DATES OF INTEREST: [MEntity] February 12 - 15: NEXUS (convergence) - this appears to be a parallel shift that is an emphasis on growing closer to those with whom one has been tentative, or has fallen into tentativeness. [MEntity] Barriers and inhibitions would likely drop to help bring fragments closer, as they are in other parallels. [MEntity] February 25: Energy Shift - we think there may be something brought to public awareness regarding discovery or speculative discovery regarding off-planet material on or around this date. It is another contributing factor to the wave of enthusiasm and inspiration wave. Overview of 2014 [MEntity] Now, in terms of an overview of the year ahead: [MEntity] We think most will remember 2014 as a "Good Year," as there is such a wave of Inspiration unfolding from several directions and among even the Young and Mature in Soul Age. [MEntity] Cooperation and breakthroughs regarding misunderstandings in politics and religion may even be prominently surprising. This is not to say that there will not be challenges, but that there would tend to be some breakthroughs that begin a trend of uniting factions as opposed to the path that has been so divisive. [MEntity] The factions that insist on remaining more insular and isolated would likely find themselves falling to states of implosion by the end of the year, or have lashed out in such a way that it actually secures a greater determination for others to unite. [MEntity] With Priest, Growth, and Passion manifesting within the year in ways that appear, so far, to be leaning toward the Positive Poles, a sense that this is a pivotal year toward "something better" might begin to cautiously be embraced. [MEntity] The Realism of the year would tend to help curb the more delusional or distracting elements that might otherwise eclipse the sense of Inspiration, Compassion, Evolution, and Self-Actualization. That Realism would allow for one to step back enough to know that delusional distractions are not the equivalent of an obligation for addressing. One can allow room for those with delusional distractions, and still stand in compassion. [MEntity] Because so much would likely be felt as having been experienced, processed, and integrated over 2014, it is likely that the Impatience of the end of the year would be either lifted entirely, or replaced. [MEntity] The most significant events of 2014 would likely be in terms of those factions that refuse to move forward with progress and process of the planet lashing out and displaying what we see as the middle stages of their "dying gasps." [MEntity] Two significant weather-related events, primarily involving surprisingly destructive and sustained winds, would appear to be a focus for a large portion of the population. [MEntity] A "celebrity" murder looks to be coming around as a focal point, as well. [MEntity] Surprising transformations in immigration laws and in legalization of marijuana appear to make great strides in the year ahead, as well. [MEntity] For the United States. [MEntity] We can share these highlights with you because they appear to be linked to Nexus throughout the year ahead, and while these still have a great likelihood of changing, these are fairly secure enough in their link to the current momentum that we can, at least, mention them. [MEntity] We will open the floor now for questions regarding the topic: ****** QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ****** [ViP] I have the same Role, Goal, and Mode as the respective collective energies for this year. How would this affect (if at all) how I experience the year and those parts of it with Goal and Mode in focus? [MEntity] When a year is aligned with one's Overleaves to a great degree, or to one's Role, the year tends to go in one of two distinct directions: [MEntity] extreme challenge, or extreme progression. [MEntity] These are probably fair to say are the same things in the end, but the more challenging side would tend to come for those who have work to do regarding embracing more of their own power, choices, actions, etc. It is difficult to hide from who and how one is in a year that is emphasizing one's very nature overall. [MEntity] If those challenges are seen as beneficial, then there is the progression. [MEntity] Progression is a sense of relief and movement forward in the life in a way that seems almost pre-planned and guided from levels of the self that are not as tangible as your every day self. [MEntity] A progressive year is a matter of listening to oneself, to following impulses and pleasures and being honest. [MEntity] The sense of struggle, in terms of "challenge" is only felt if the focus from the self is on continuing to hide from who and how one is. [MEntity] The sense of progress, then, in terms of "progression," is felt when one builds on who and how one is. [brian] You mentioned that 2014 might start off like a tsunami. Will there be any more waves of destruction, or how might you recommend getting back on the board and surfing the next one? [MEntity] First, we would suggest for those who have experienced this break of resistance against avoidance and evasion to be one of CONSTRUCTION, not DESTRUCTION. It is a clearing away of debris that may be the equivalent of hoarding, or at least the debris as a by-product of hiding. [MEntity] Looking at the chaos of the breakthrough as constructive would help one to tap into the inspiration and creative problem solving that is necessary for infusing the experience with meaning that is useful and helpful, rather than as degrading and undermining. [MEntity] THAT is your "surfboard," then: the optimism of possibility even from among the debris, and even in the midst of cleaning up that debris. [MEntity] Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. [MEntity] Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. [MEntity] It is quite difficult to build from within Chaos, and to build patterns, if one resigns from the responsibility of Growth, or put another way, resigns from the responsibility of creating and bringing value and meaning to an experience. [MEntity] We cannot say if there will be other breakthroughs for those who are starting the year with them. We doubt there will be. We think most prefer to work with the one that is enough. [Oscar] hey Michael =) Could you share any possible 2014 highlights for the Netherlands? [MEntity] The Netherlands is often quite stable in its participation in the world, in terms of how collective energy manifests. That population is slow to bring great changes or challenges, with most of that being done "privately" and from within smaller groupings. We think most of the 2014 would appear to be fairly uneventful in terms of challenges, but we think there are several high-profile celebrations in store. [MEntity] There are a couple of Dutch Directors whose names may gain some more international attention in 2014, and a controversial artist who looks to bring up some debate within the local population. There appears to be a development project that is also under scrutiny and would lean toward either being dismantled or being altered to appease the public. [MEntity] We also see a breakthrough in scientific experimentation that comes from that area, and would fall into the category of "exciting." We cannot tell what it is, but it is of international consideration. [MEntity] The infrastructure regarding flooding is at a breaking point as 2014 passes, and this may come to be more relevant to the population as 2015 nears. [MEntity] We think these are bordering on predictions, so we will leave you with these higher probable events to note, though even those are not immune to alterations. 2 [GeraldineB] Even though I think this was answered, I'd like to specifically ask: "What are the probabilities of having the Sochi Olympics either disrupted or halted due to violence? [MEntity] We think the likelihood of disruption is high, at around 78% probability, with the likelihood of a halt being fairly low at 14%. [MEntity] There are, clearly, fragments who we can see are eager for this platform of expression for zealousness and confusion. [MEntity] They appear to be quite intent. [MEntity] If there is not the disruption due to violence, we would think there would be the disruption due to the intervention. [MEntity] We will conclude here for today. [MEntity] Good evening to all of you.
  3. ENERGY REPORT OCTOBER 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) OCTOBER marks the shift of emphasis for the year toward that of the Chief Negative Features, which are those behaviors that are prompted as a form of defense against certain fears. When anyone moves into serious self-assessment of the past, it can either bring out one’s fears, or bring out one’s gratitude. Self-assessment happens throughout the year for everyone, but in terms of our “Energy Reports,” we speak to the general wave of collective processes, and October through December tends to be a time period where more than half of the planet goes through a self-assessment. This is largely due to the fact that it is the end of the calendar year for most of the planet, and any significant shift in measuring large arcs of time can prompt mass self-assessment. When mass self-assessment happens, then mass fears and their subsequent defenses can be prompted. The Chief Features we interpret for the year are those that reflect how collective fear may be played out in the world, not necessarily in one’s personal life, though it is difficult to evade the collective fears if one is even remotely participating in the world. Everyone will have his or her individual Chief Feature methods for responding to fear, but the Chief Features described for the year is how all of that collective energy may flow into the world and show up. This year, those whose self-assessment brings up fear may contribute to the fears that revolve around CONTROL. Impatience and Martyrdom are the defenses against fears related to Controlling TIME or Controlling SPACE, respectively. Keep in mind that our Chief Features do not describe the actual fears, but what one tends to do IN REACTION or DEFENSE against fears. Impatience is a reaction to, or a defense against, the fear that time is running out, is slipping by, is overwhelming, and cannot be controlled. Martyrdom is a reaction to, or a defense against, the fear that one’s life, environment, personal space or world is out of control, is hurting rather than helping, and does not comply to one’s wishes, demands, and expectations. Time and Space can never truly be controlled beyond a certain extent, and for the most part, one only has control over how one experiences, interprets, and uses these resources. The defenses and reactions that come up when one cannot control these things is useless against the experience of the passing of time, or the direction of everything in one’s environment or world. One can fear getting old all one wants to fear it, but one will grow older. One can prepare for the worst all one wants, or wish for the best, but one cannot control the entirety of economy, geological disasters, or the choices of others, etc. One can completely control his or her experiences, interpretations, and use of these qualities of life, however. This year appears to be bringing up a great deal of exploration around the issue of Control, and this is being played out in the world in ways that we have not been seen since the 1960’s. At this point, the fear of losing control in the world looks a bit like great fists desperately squeezing sand to hold on to it. For most of our students, we see that they are observing this more than experiencing it, but it may show up in the personal realm, as well, depending upon how much one is participating in the world at large. Even merely observing it is participation. We encourage our students to be a part of the world, if they choose. It is not an aim of our teaching to encourage one to rise above it or escape it, but to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn within the experiences of it. There are two polarities happening the world at this point that are dealing with this issue of Control. On the positive side, we have a mass of fragments who recognize that a momentum is in place that is headed toward catastrophe on many levels. Their response is more along the lines of “steering” as a means of returning to control, but in order to get this steering under control, “the brakes” have to be put on. Hard. This has shown up in many ways this year where those who were at the mercy of a momentum that was not of their obvious choice have finally put on the brakes and are redirecting the momentum as best they can. This will most likely be seen even more so in the months ahead, where those who would most suffer from a harmful momentum are taking responsibility and doing what they can to help halt and redirect. It is the beginning of a revolution, and not in just the obvious ways, but in psychic ways, as well, and across several countries. On the negative side, a minority of fragments are digging in their heels from a paradigm that refuses to accommodate change, evolution, prosperity, sharing, empathy, etc. In short, they refuse to accommodate the shift from Young Soul paradigm of “there is you and me, and I’m going to win” to that of the Mature Soul paradigm of “there is you and me, and I know how you feel.” Furthermore, they refuse to accommodate the inevitable shift from the Debt-based Society of the past 100 year Platform to a Choice/Resource-based Society of the 21st Century Platform. Those fragments refusing to participate and adapt to this inevitable change among the masses of consciousness on the planet will most likely continue to do all they can to ensure their paradigm is not disturbed. Ironically, their paradigm would not be disturbed if they would not presume it should also be the paradigm of the masses. There is a way for them to carry on without too much inconvenience, but this is not particularly attractive to these Younger souls at this time. The scenario at this time is similar to that of a group of teenagers who have won the lottery because of tickets bought by the adults around them, with the teenagers not only refusing to share, but refusing to acknowledge that their winnings are precisely because of those who did not win. It is their right not to share, of course, but it is also their demise, as there is little value to anything that one does not share or exchange, from the wallet to the smile. Money (resources) has little value in the Mature Paradigm, unless it is shared, so a new system would either come into place to completely remove the value of money as it is currently understood, or a new way of distributing the resources and money of the world would come into play. Every fragment is free to live in his own world, so to speak, but there is never a time on the planet, regardless of predominant Soul Age, when one is not simultaneously, inherently in a shared reality with everyone else on the planet, and one’s choices and actions have impact on those with whom that reality is shared. This default of a shared reality is part of how a species grows in consciousness, because everyone’s choices and actions must be dealt with to some extent, and eventually these begin to be experienced in a way that is either pleasant or harmful. As one is on the receiving or contributing end of those experiences, more consciousness is brought to the process of choice, giving rise to greater pleasures and less harm. This aim toward pleasure is not required, of course, but it simply seems to be preferred, which would make sense because it feels good. We know of no Essence who truly prefers true harm over true pleasure, even if some Personalities choose to bring great harm in a lifetime. In the long run, Pleasure tends to be the higher aim, and is always the preference of Essence. Your world, at this point, is embracing the Mature Soul paradigm at an exponential rate, and every facet of the previous Young Soul paradigm that contributes harm is going to be addressed. Paradigm shifts are often brought about by masses, but in the Mature shift, the masses would most likely be geared toward the most peaceful, educational , and empathic of efforts possible for that change to take effect. Bumping up against the force of the Young Paradigm may, however, require some “fighting back,” and this may not be pleasant in some cases. So what you have in the world as Impatience and Martyrdom is being played out in a group that is struggling to retain control through the negative poles of Intolerance and Victimization, and another group that is struggling to regain control through positive poles of Audacity and Selflessness. There may be some cross over between the groups, but the division should be fairly clear. Most of our Older Soul students are as excited about this as they are terrified, and this is “just the beginning.” This polarized battle for control is more than likely going to end in control being lost by many before regaining footing again among the masses. For the next few months, this struggle may play out in the world much like a tug of war between a mass of ants and a Red Wood Tree, but it will only be in the breaking or dropping of the rope that either side “wins” and can move on to a preferable momentum. On a personal level, this playing out of Chief Features in the world may bring some anxiety and stress to our students. This would be natural, but not necessary. Your world is going to change. It is inevitable. And we can assure you that our students have the masses “on their side” in terms of moving everyone toward a paradigm that is more comforting to Older Souls than one has been in a long time. This is not a prediction, but a fairly stable probability that is consistent with many shifts we have seen. Every revolution is ugly for the chaos it brings at first, but then leads into patterns that can once again be considered beautiful. Translating all of this into personal terms, the next few months may find you feeling affected by unfolding of events in your inner or outer world that may look and feel rather chaotic, depressing, or even traumatic, but remembering that this is simply a process of rearranging a harmful momentum to be aimed toward a more pleasurable direction. To ignore, hide, or dismiss it is a choice to contribute to the chaos, but to observe, hold a vision, and live by example, would do far more for reducing the impact of such a revolution. Helpful thoughts over OCTOBER might be: 1) THERE ARE VERY FEW BAD PEOPLE, But MANY Better Choices The concept of “bad” is usually relative to your own ideas about what are important and meaningful choices, which may easily put you in the same position as “bad” to those on the other side of an issue. We dare say that nearly every one of our students have been on the receiving end of this label, or similar, when his or her own well-intentioned, personal choices were deemed as “bad,” or as harming another who stood against those choices, when in fact, nothing harmful was being done. Keep this in mind when making the choice to defend or condemn, as it may simply be a matter of differences in priorities, values, and meanings, and not a matter of good vs bad. To seek only to change the choices of another to accommodate your own, even if your choices are “clearly” better, is to do the same thing against which you are probably standing. To help keep your personal world from falling into an outdated paradigm that pits one side against another, it is always helpful to remember that every individual does the best he or she can with what he or she thinks are important or meaningful choices. Making your choices from there can help you to direct yourself toward what you choose, rather than spending all of your time trying to convince or halt another individual’s or group’s choices. Even in situations of oppression or true harm, it is more than likely your own capacity for making better choices that will save the day, rather than the focus on the condemnation of the oppressor. 2) BEING HURT IS NOT THE SAME THING AS BEING HARMED It times when the fears related to Control are emphasized, it is important to differentiate between the concepts of Hurt and Harm. Hurt is a reaction, and as such is an extension of choice. Harm is an intention. If you are slapped in the face, it may Hurt no matter who does it, or how it is done, but whether Harm was intended is a very important factor to consider. A person who is slapped in the face by someone who intends to Harm can experience far more damage than one who has been accidentally hit by a car, unintentionally. Harm must be intended for it to be True Harm. All True Harm Hurts, but not all Hurts are the result of True Harm. You have control over your Hurting, even when someone intended to Harm you. Your Hurt is your own, and can be processed as you choose, even if it includes Physical Hurting. A person who owns his or her Hurt tends to experience far less pain than someone who feels that his or her Hurt is someone else’s responsibility to heal. Even Physical recoveries are helped by this differentiation. Differentiating between Hurt and Harm, then, is vital for one’s health, recovery, or even revolution. If someone disappoints you, it can hurt, but if there was no intention to hurt you, and it is only a matter of someone making a choice that you wish he or she did not make, it is not Harm, no matter how hurt you feel. It is up to you what you do with this kind of differentiation, but it can be far less painful than waiting for, or pushing for, someone else to fix your Hurt. Hurt can be experienced in such moments as disappointment, as well as moments of True Harm, so it is easy to default to the presumption that your Hurt was intended, but more often than not, it was never intended. In an evolving consciousness and in an evolving world/paradigm, the responsibility of one’s own Hurting begins to be a priority for healing,and transformation to happen, rather than through resorting to blame. It is okay to hold someone accountable for the choices that he or she makes that may have been hurtful to you, or for you to make choices that will remove you from the hurt caused by the choices of another person, but your hurt is not something to which you must remain attached, even if Harm was intended. Knowing that Harm was or was not intended can help you to make better choices in response to the experience, rather than remaining in a state of reaction. Feeling Hurt is one way for you to become aware of what or who is not working in your life, and that is all it has to be. If you stub your toe, it would make no sense to blame the table leg. It simply means for you to be aware of that table leg and to be more careful, if you choose. If you were to wait for the table leg to apologize or do the work of healing your toe, it would be absurd. It is no different in cases where another person meant no Harm, even if you are Hurt. Your choices can be made from this awareness, and your hurt can dissolve, rather than turning into further ailments and patterns. NOTE: The current psychic revolution, or paradigm shift, on your planet is now in the process of grasping this differentiation, and making collective choices from there in as effective a way as possible. It is rather impressive. DATES OF INTEREST OCTOBER 3rd through OCTOBER 5th - a divergence (branching into parallels) Nexus with an emphasis on mass responsibility versus mass blame. Some will branch off into parallels where wars would most likely be of interest, while some will branch off into parallels where communication, education, responsibility from within is the emphasis, giving rise to revolutions and movements, instead of wars. This parallel shift is a divergence between those who are interested in a "Think for yourself" world, as opposed to those who wish to have others do the thinking for them. OCTOBER 20th through 29th- a major, lengthy divergence that extends from the previous, which may be marked by some rather spectacular world event, if this Nexus occurs. This Divergence would emphasize another round of examples for why everyone needs to work together, and not fall into the illusions of duality or delusional, divisive tactics. The "Think for yourself" may show up in problem solving patterns that are the result of matrices of contributing thought, rather than from an authority. The obvious effects from this Nexus may not manifest until the following year, as this appears to be relative to a long-term exploration.

    Michael Speaks: March 2004

    March 04, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Energy Report and Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin tonight with a brief look at how the energy appears to be moving in terms of consciousness and your shared outer world. Approximately the first three months of a given year are generally about the implementation of that year's energy as described in terms of ROLE, GOAL, and CENTER. The Role energy and Center energy will be a context for the entire year, with each additional level of energy (in terms of Goal, Mode, Attitude, Chief Feature) becoming more directly implemented, or emphasized, during progressive portions of the year. These first few months have emphasized the Goal of Re-Evaluation. We have seen a great deal of regressive focus in your world as the varying Soul Age perceptions “take stock” in what is important to each. When a planet or large population makes a major shift in Soul Age, that period of time becomes wrought with the proclamations of each Soul Age. The most secure and confident Soul Ages are currently the Baby and Young, with very strong “voices” being impressed and expressed in and through the media. These Soul Ages are inherently “against” the encompassing of anything labeled as “other”. One of the final steps in progression toward the next Soul Age (from Baby to Young, and from Young to Mature) is through surrender to the reality of “other”. We state this because there are many Baby and Young Souls, near the end of their own Soul Age, who exhibit what appear to be quite progressive perceptions. This progressive level of acceptance is because final or late-level Baby and Young Souls are focused on the understanding and acceptance of anything that has ever been labeled “other” during the first 5 or 6 Levels of that Soul Age. While many Baby and Young Souls are clamoring for resistance to acceptance of the planetary shift, you may find pockets of Final- and Late-Level Baby and Young Souls standing in defense of the progress toward maturity on your planet. The stances of these Baby and Young Souls is important as there are very few “loud” Mature Souls at this time taking strong stances for anything in particular, though they will gladly contribute themselves as support. The majority of the population on the planet is Mature Soul, but these are very early-level Mature Souls with deeply sensitive, sometimes fragile, perceptions. Many of these Mature Souls are easily overwhelmed by the division and chaos that seems to be conveyed through the media, especially in terms of politics and equal rights. The irony of the source of strength behind your continued shift into a Mature Soul world is in the works and stances of these Late-level Young and Baby Souls. Many final- or late-level Baby and Young Souls have surrendered to the ‘new Mature Soul world’ of compassion, acceptance, consideration, and Rights. Their Essences are keenly aware that the choices made from their current lifetime will impact the reality of their future lifetimes and Soul Ages. We explain all of this for a reason: Over the course of this year you may find yourself in very awkward perceptual positions that you have never experienced, or have not experienced in quite some time. More often than usual, you may find yourself in quite shocking and disorienting contexts where the majority opinion around you is absolutely counter to your own perceptions. We see this as being particularly strong over the next few months, and for many of our students, this appears to be a serious surprise over the next month of March. We explain all of this to you as a means to help you understand and adapt to the “unrest” that may appear to be around you and against you. Issues of “morality and religion” are the tools of the Young and Baby, while “Rights” are the tools of the Mature Soul. The Young Souls are not particularly ruled by these issues of morality and religion, but they do know that to keep these values implemented keeps people in a more controlled position, thus allowing for better opportunities for the Young Souls. Over the year we see approximately 5 fragments in the final levels of the Young or Baby Soul Ages becoming strong, pivotal, public forces toward helping support changes in favor of the Mature Soul world. One fragment in particular appears to be known as Donald Trump. You may be surprised as to who “comes out” in support of controversial Rights. On a more personal level you may experience this energy as creating restlessness in you, an agitation, a compulsion to withdraw, or you may find that it encourages you to take a look at your own convictions, principles, and perceptions, moving you into a clearer, more conscious definition of where you stand in the world. In other words: there appears to be a pressure to take part IN the world more than usual, regardless of how you react/respond to that. This pressure may seem ironic in a year of Re-evaluation, but do not forget that Re-evaluation is on the same Axis as the Goal of Growth, sharing an Inspirational Axis. Re-evaluation does not inherently mean resigning from the world, even if you move into the negative pole of Withdrawal; Re-evaluation is about Simplifying. All issues in your own life or in your shared world are being simplified down to only a very few basic issues; the KEY issues. Regardless as to whether these issues are in your personal life or in your shared world, these issues will more than likely relate to RIGHTS. The public, shared world will be obvious as Gay Rights, Animal Rights, and general Human Rights continue to dominate the issues, but in your personal life, you may also be simplifying your own sense of Rights, i.e. your Right to be Loved, or to Love, to Have, to Know, etc. Some of you may feel a strong conviction that you have put off or dismissed some part of your life that you finally admit you have a RIGHT TO EXPERIENCE. The energy is now here all around you and among your support groups of entity and cadre mates, to finally allow/create some of those experiences. We can safely say then that a key phrase over the next month might be: I CAN. We would suggest making an effort to consciously simplify your options and actions and thoughts and feelings about any area of Rights you have felt strongly about changing. To do this, we can suggest 3 things for helping you move into a positive state of Re-evaluation: Decording: imagine releasing all energetic bonds extending to and from your body. You can do so by imagining “washing” these cords from your body, allowing them to drop or “pulled off” gently. Remember to pay close attention to any cords stemming from your back. Although energetic bonding is not as literal as your visualization needs to be, the symbolic visuals are valid. Cords extending from the “front” of your body are those in which you feel energized, lifted, and are there by permission. Cords extending from the “back” of your body are those from which you feel drained, depressed, and are not there by conscious permission. After decording your body in your imagination, imagine draping your body in a gold mesh of light, feeling a deeply peaceful release of all demands against your energy. This imaginary gold mesh of light is simply a way of consciously directing your energy to remain “clean”, deflecting the unwanted cords while encouraging the return of those deemed inspiring. Walking: simply taking a long walk in the open air with no intentions but to experience the walk can greatly clarify your sense of self as Soul and Personality, allowing you to be a better provider for you and your life. Singing or lip-synching: this may seem “silly”, but the act of unbridled expression can bring with it a great amount of clarity. Over the next month, if any or all three of these things were to be implemented once or twice, you may find you have a stronger sense of your next steps within this year. Some of you may already meditate, sing, and walk regularly, so if you feel these are too familiar, we simply suggest that you heighten your awareness in your next experience of these routines. Your benefit will not be compromised. We will stop here for questions about the ENERGY REPORT. We are not opening the floor to general questions, yet. QUESTIONS ABOUT REPORT [kittlekats41] you mentioned that the majority of the population is at the early mature level in the world – what is it in the United States at this time – also early mature? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the United States’ average Soul Age is around 3rd Level Mature, as is your planet and universe. This average does not mean you will feel it or see it as much as you will see and feel the remaining impact from the previous Soul Age average, of course. [Rivrbird] Michael, would you give an example of an area where majority opinion will seem exactly counter to our own perceptions in such a way that we would be shocked or disoriented? [Michael_Entity] We know of at least two fragments in this “room” who are surrounded by charismatic, social, affectionate, and warm Personalities. Upon prompting, these very same warm fragments express strong opinions and hostile stances against the Rights of anyone beyond Christianity or Heterosexuality. That captures the most common means of these surprising differences to be displayed. Many Old and Mature Souls will find that the very people with whom they have bonded or gained warm acquaintances have quite startlingly opposing viewpoints that are now being encouraged by media and political hype. [Anla899] What is the best way to respond to these opposing viewpoints when demonstrated by these acquaintances? [Michael_Entity] Of course, the “best way” is the way you feel compelled, as this would honor your ability to choose. There is no real “best way”, though there are methods that are more conducive to certain results than others. Our suggestions would rely on your sense of what you would wish to accomplish with your response. If your intent is for as peaceful a response as possible, we have seen that a lack of engagement in a debate is the most efficient route. In most instances, we have not seen much progress in a debate between a zealous Baby Soul and an emotional Mature or logical Old Soul. This is not said to discourage those debates, as your engagement in such activities or not, is your choice. If your intent is to maintain your sense of integrity and right to expression in the midst of these intimidating stances, we would suggest simply stating that you do not agree and proceed with any discussion within your level of ability and comfort, excusing yourself calmly when you feel you may lose your emotional or logical “footing”. [Rivrbird] Baby and young souls use religion, mature souls use “rights”, do old souls have a particular “tool” that we use? [Michael_Entity] Most Old Souls will default to the tools of Soul Age in which they most relate, and in most cases this would be the Mature Soul. Therefore, you may find a great many Old Souls coming out of their comfort zones of acceptance and surrender, back into the actions that encourage Rights. Behind the use of that, we would say that the tool of the Old Soul then would be Wisdom or Logic. [Heidi Hessler] Could Michael expand a bit on how the Great Pyramid operated as a practical means for transportation? …Sorry this question is off the subject. [Michael_Entity] We have a great deal to say about the “Great Pyramid” and various other structures of similar mystery, but we will limit our response to your question. We would not say that this structure was practical by any means, and we would not accurately describe it as a form of transportation. We would more accurately state that it was used for Teleportation. This feat was accomplished by harnessing the energy of Earthquakes. Its abilities extend beyond Teleportation within Space, but within Time, as well. It will be used “again”. We will open the floor for one or two more questions, if there are any, and then conclude the evening with you. [kittlekats41] I was hoping you might be able to give those of us who are fine-tuning our own channeling abilities some useful advice about perfecting our ‘focus’, or at least improving . . .:-) [Michael_Entity] Each of you has Overleaves that are more conducive to one of the three stages of channeling: Reception, Interpretation, and Transmission. Depending on the design of your Personality, you may be more inclined in strength in one of these areas. “Reception” is the actual ability to connect with, or sense, the energy in which you wish to experience. “Interpretation” is the actual ability to take patterns of Reception and make sense of those patterns within a language you understand, whether emotional, intellectual, or bodily. “Transmission” is the actual ability to convey patterns through you to another individual or group in meaningful ways. To excel in just one of these areas is not a limitation. For instance, Transmission might seem useless if you do not “know how” to Receive or Interpret, but this is not necessarily the case as many Healers, particularly in the context of Reiki, can attest. Their intent is to Transmit, not necessarily understand or “get” what is happening. Without an in-depth class to explain the dynamics of our comments, we can suggest that you sense the area in which you feel you are strongest and weakest (less-inclined). In the area in which you are strongest, simply practice as usual. In the area in which you are less-inclined, we can suggest a few simple tools to help gently strengthen these areas: Reception: Dutifully, willingly, and daily, keep a Dream Journal. Even if you do not remember your dream, write that you do not remember your dream. Experiment with this journaling by writing questions to your Essence, and assume your dreams will respond. Interpretation: study an intuitive tool such as the Tarot. Learn how to see and interpret patterns in the layouts. Create symbolic meanings of certain events and patterns around you and observe “signs” around you using synchronicity. Transmission: Sit still and silent without falling asleep. Practice suddenly relaxing your body at various points in the day. Incorporate psychic hygiene into your daily or weekly routines, allowing your showers/baths to also “brighten” your aura and release any old energy patterns you may sense. These are quick, simple suggestions, but they will do for your continued explorations. We will conclude here. Good night to all of you.
  5. August 3, 2003 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS (Online) – Energy Report with Q&A [MichaelEntity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as requested: It appears the more intense energy of June and July is waning as a lull is settling in. This comes after a great deal of physical and mental activity during June and July. As many of you already know the months of June and July brought with them a great deal of Clarity and Implementation. Most of our students dealt with some form of serious change during those months with some form of revelation being implemented. As we had mentioned in our previous report, it is not unusual to implement a serious change, but the difference was in the fact that so many of you participated in such an investment. After June’s and July’s activities and shifts, August should bring about some relief, some “down time”, a short break. For most of our students (especially those in the United States) calmness is moving through the collective consciousness, and while this is an opportunity to simply relax, most will find this calm to be unsettling and distrustful. Because this year is rooted in the energies of the Moving Center, it may be difficult for you to simply relax and peacefully go about the routines of your life right now. A momentum is in place and calmness may be difficult to settle into, even if only briefly. Even for those who are quite sedentary, you may be associated with another fragment who will keep you restless along with him or her. Our suggestion for the next 3 weeks or so is to take advantage of the calm, to make a decision that for at least one of the weeks, you will trust your life; you will simply do the routines of your day, and know that you are safe. For those who have made a major change in July or June, then August can be seen as a Maintenance month, continuing the implementation of your changes, getting comfortable after some of your personal shifts. In light of the opportunity to choose Calmness over the next three weeks or so, we will not complicate matters by elaborating the Energy Report too much. We already know that many of you will choose to follow your restlessness and that is as valid a choice as choosing to rest. We will help in your ability to consciously make your choice by stating that if you find you are choosing restlessness, or if you seem to not be able to relax even when you try, that you can help generate peace for even a few hours at a time by simply reminding yourself that YOU ARE SAFE. In most cases restlessness is due to some form of control issues, and if you let your guard down for “one second” things will “fall apart”. Many times those who are restless don’t even know what it is they worry about, but in many situations that worry is simply rooted in feeling unsafe. Those who “worry” to the point of being unable to relax are the same children who were usually punished in some way for behaviors deemed unacceptable. “Worry” and restlessness are only for superficial appearances then. As long as you are worried, or as long as you are restless, then even if you are judged, rejected, or reprimanded (internally or from external sources), at least your worry and restlessness will show you tried. This is not to diminish the very real worries of life, or the restlessness of certain experiences and bodily/hormonal fluctuations, but when a fragment feels he or she CANNOT choose against these things, it may be rooted in that lack of feeling safe. For those who choose to access and experiment with the energies available over the next few weeks, you can experiment with how often you can look at your life and say with trust and truth that you are safe. While the past couple of months helped support serious changes among most of you, this month’s energy can lend support in your reacquainting yourself with the “groove” of your life from the stance of Trust. We will now take questions from those who have them. QUESTIONS [infoloon] I thought virtually all children in this culture were punished for behaviors deemed unacceptable? [MichaelEntity] And the act of “worrying” is as pervasive. [Whillo333] Is the unsafe feeling from the unstable political and economic status of “the world” and the “fear” that seems to permeate society now? [MichaelEntity] It is actually rare that any older soul (Late Mature through Old) ever feels completely safe within the lifetime. Regardless of the state of any culture, society, country, or planet for that matter, the Older Souls have known many tragedies and have experienced many struggles these souls know all-too-well how easily a life can shift and change. Over many lifetimes the Essence gains experiences in managing these shifts and perils of the physical plane, but each lifetime also brings a new Personality that has never experienced death or struggle. [pitcoozer] That is a revelation – re: late mature and old souls .. and feeling safe. [MichaelEntity]This is a strange dichotomy that will eventually resolve itself as the Personality learns to access and trust what it considers its Essence. [pitcoozer] Explains a lot – the trust is like the candle blowing in the wind .. [Whillo333] Thank you. As an old soul, your comments are very meaningful to me. [MichaelEntity] As that dichotomy resolves itself, the Personality, while still being “new”, will not only find access to the memories of hardship and deaths, but also to the reality of the immortality of its Essence. [pitcoozer] Yes – alleviates the fear of death itself, and increases the zest for living and being .. [MichaelEntity] As we have said many times, but will say again, it is the Personality that “controls” the lifetime, not the Essence. While Essence can offer an overall theme to the lifetime, it is the choices and decisions of Personality that create the path of a lifetime. As each choice is made, Essence can “spin off” versions of that lifetime into “parallels”, allowing thousands of versions of the Personality to fulfill itself. [Whillo333] Can the 2 be at odds throughout the lifetime? [MichaelEntity] There will always be AT LEAST one parallel that will find resonance and recognition of Essence, following the original intent of the lifetime. There will almost always be at least one lifetime that completely rejects the notion of a soul and creates its own path. [Whillo333] In which case, what happens to the soul? [MichaelEntity] So, in answer to the original question, the sense of unsafety we speak of is that which is inherently a part of any life, especially of the older soul. Eventually, and as part of any final cycle of lives, the Personality and Essence become “One”, and a kind of “telescoping” of all lifetimes occurs, with all Personalities across time finally experiencing a sense of Home. In answer to your question, Whillo, the soul observes that lifetime/parallel and learns. [freyaisissuz] Wil’s que: Wil was channeled as having a secondary channeling agreement with Michael. A definition from Michael about a “secondary agreement” and how it differs from primary would help validate the contract for him and others. [MichaelEntity] Different channels will create different ways of describing our Agreements with us. Those who use “secondary” to describe an Agreement with us would usually be describing the seeking of direct contact with us for personal reasons, along with the ability to offer that contact to personal circles of friends or family. A “secondary” Agreement would not include any pull to “go public”, while a Primary Agreement may not only involve publicity, but the use of the Agreement as a source of income. [schleiv] How can we learn to trust the action of just letting your day go by. How do you know its right to just let it flow? At times I feel this, when doing my art but later, I think I could have been much more productive, where does the trust begin and the uncertainty end? [MichaelEntity] As with most distrust, it comes from speculation, not valid perception. Trust begins when you can learn to differentiate and choose between Speculation and Valid Perception. When you are in the middle of your day, trusting, flowing, and generally feeling synchronized with your life and Essence, it can safely be said that you are in a state of Trust. At the end of that same day, upon reinterpretation, you may then find yourself speculating, extracting upon retrospect all of the things you could or should have done; therein lays the source of your distrust and worry. Whether in speculation before or after an experience, you will always find ways that you could or should have done something. The ability to learn and evolve comes with a “double-edged sword”, meaning that along with that ability to evolve, you also have the ability to extract possibilities/probabilities that could/would have worked better or differently. [emberton@…] Thanks Michael, here is my question: If we find ourselves permeated by worry and fear-of-letting-go during this period, what method(s) or technologies do you recommend to facilitate a break in this pattern, beyond what has been mentioned previously? [MichaelEntity] We only suggest making the attempt to consciously choose Trust and to do so with the knowledge of why you may have difficulty doing so. There is no other way to truly make the choice. The most profound method of choosing Trust/Safety is in the simple act of STOPPING. By this we mean to literally stop moving, stop fidgeting, stop thinking about anything distracting, even for one minute or 30 seconds, and stating with as much gentleness as possible… “I AM SAFE. THERE IS NOTHING MORE THAN ME AND MY CHOICES RIGHT NOW. I AM SAFE.” Taking 30 seconds to feel safe and to choose trust can have a calming effect on the body and mind for at least an hour or so. We suggest stating the words once, gently and with as much truth as you can, and HEAR THEM. Repeating them over and over may create a reaction from your Instinctive Center that something is wrong and requires trying to override reality. So state the words calmly, plainly, sweetly to you, and listen to how they sound. It would do you well to understand that the words being stated will not change your life. Instead, they will be words that invite a new perception, which can then change your experiences of your life. Taking those moments to invite the perception, allowing more conscious and loving interpretations of the lifetime, lead to more conscious and loving choices. [H2OSprtlvr] Do you suggest that August is a good month to review personal fears such as with interpersonal relationships? All fears, I suppose. [MichaelEntity] Any Month is always a “good month” for any introspection. In your case, it may actually be a “good time” to give yourself a break from your constant internal scrutiny. While we are not suggesting you choose against your own inclinations, we will say that some of your solutions you seek can be found by not “looking so closely” at the matter at hand. You are submerged in an experience that could be benefited from a bit of distancing from it. The past few months were for such close scrutiny and clarity. August could be used to say, “Why did I ever think anything was ever wrong?” This does not mean you have to dismiss any responsibilities you feel inclined to work through, but it can help you make clearer, gentler decisions and Choices. Modern lives are not wrought with Survival as many of your past lives have been, but are wrought with “Improvement”. The greatest “improvement” you can make on any life or relationship is in freeing yourself from assuming there is some conclusive improvement to be reached. You will ALWAYS “improve” and we have yet to have seen any end to our potential evolution. We quote the word “improve” because of its being a misnomer. There is only Evolution. “Improvement” is relative. Relationships, internally and externally, will ALWAYS Evolve, which may be seen as an Improvement or not. [Anla899] What are ways to synchronize personality and Essence on a day to day basis? [MichaelEntity] There are three very simple and effective ways of synchronizing Essence with Personality: Writing to Essence, Talking to Essence, or Meditating to Essence. [Anla899] How do we do those? [MichaelEntity] Most fragments assume that Essence “knows all” about the lifetime being lived, but that is not the case. Essence only “knows” what YOU inform it of, which is why some lives can seem to spiral out of control, reaching a point where crisis is the only time the Personality seeks to contact its soul. Essence can only experience your life THROUGH you. There are moments within the life called “Instinctive Review” wherein the Personality “uploads” the experiences of the life to-date and Essence can then help to direct the life, if the Personality will allow it. Otherwise, it is up to Personality to keep the lines of communication clear and up-to-date. Keeping any form of a journal, whether daily or weekly or monthly can help keep Personality and Essence in contact and more united. For journaling, simply write about your life, stating clearly what it is you seek to change, stating clearly about areas in which you believe you would like help from Essence. Keep a log of your dreams and observe the changes you are recording by looking at patterns in your days, your choices, and reactions, dreams, etc. Keeping a journal is like remaining gently conscious of what it is you want, need, and keeping Essence included in that. Some of you may benefit from simply speaking out loud to Essence, treating this part of you as an actual “invisible friend” who is humorous and caring. State to your Essence occasionally how you feel your life is going, asking for help, or giving gratitude when it is felt. This can be done as ritualistically as prayer or as playfully as making comments throughout your day. And finally, some may be inclined to use Meditation for continual contact with Essence. We say Meditation as it includes any practice of focus whether through calming of the body and turning inward, or through running, exercising, doing a puzzle, etc. In those instances of Meditation, however you choose to meditate, remember to invite your Essence to access your Instinctive Center where all experiences are stored. These three methods can keep Essence continually updated and your life continually synchronized, instead of having to go through startling revelations during the scheduled Instinctive Reviews. [Additional information: Michael explained later that the reason for writing, speaking, or meditation, rather than just random inner dialogue, is not only due to the fact that those three methods engage all of the Lower Centers, but that they also help refine what it is you wish to communicate, rather than all of the random worries, fears, anxiousness, etc.] [schleiv] how often are those reviews? [MichaelEntity] Val, the Reviews are approximately every 7 years, with the major reviews around the ages of 28 and a 56.
  6. I went through the Energy Reports to look at Nexuses since Dec 21 2012, when we officially moved into the Mature Soul Age. I summarized each one in my own words, but you can just go to each Energy Report post in the transcripts and see what was written if you'd like. I hope this sparks some understanding of the world in the last few years. It's very interesting to see how each Nexus builds up into the next. Try not to think of them as separate points in time, but as a stream of energy forming or dissipating into the next- as it's a lot more entertaining to see the patterns holistically. 2012: Dec 21= DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE: Realities branch and merge because of various beliefs and theories about shifts, destruction, ascension etc. that emphasize our Anxious Uncertainty and whether this will be met with Reaction or Response. 2013 (Studying the themes below, my guess is this is The Year of Collective Confidence): Jan 5-8= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch that either emphasize and amplify Collective Stubbornness especially in Politics & International Events- or free themselves from it to move on. Feb 11-15= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch that either resign to -Inertia, or actively contribute to collective redirection. Around this period, it’s especially inspiring and motivating to create structures that increase our capacity for peace, calm, abundance and +Freedom. Mar 15= DIVERGENCE: Same as the February Divergence, but with more resistance to being responsible for the flow of our life. - Jun 14-16= MAJOR CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge due to a rise of consciousness among all of them that are aiming to represent one’s Personality more confidently in the world. This Nexus recalls several branches from our past that resigned from their Power and hid themselves from scrutiny, rejection, failure etc.- but have now accepted their Empowerment, bringing a mix of grief, anguish, struggle, insight, motivation and excitement. - Aug 2-5= DIVERGENCE: Versions of us “peel away” from this reality to focus on their collapsing, ignored, rejected or eclipsed Ideals. Aug 28-31= DIVERGENCE: A spontaneous branching for the Collective to focus on various ideals and responsibilities still unresolved in Politics. On the Personal Level, this brings apocalyptic, disastrous or disturbing imagery through dreams as we are “weeding out” the worst-case scenarios for how these world issues could be tackled. - Oct 7-21= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off to focus on strikingly different versions of our future Global Economy. This then pivots us all toward or away from a Resource-based Economy. Nov 9-11= CONVERGENCE: A Reunion of Parallels where we or significant others passed away. This brings dreams in that recall vague, strange variations of our life/experiences that came from other parallels where we or our loved ones, animal companions or people from our past actually died. Dec 1-3= MINI CONVERGENCE: A Nexus that finalizes any parallel versions of us/others that died over the past few months. Dec 15-19= DIVERGENCE: A branching into 2014’s Intellectual Priest in Growth energy, or not. If there’s a rapid amplification into a strong whirlwind of activities+effort emphasizing renewed enthusiasm for your intentions, projects and tasks for 2014 then this would’ve occurred. Otherwise, these last 2 Weeks of 2013 would be more calming and recuperative before the coming January Nexus. 2014 (Studying the themes below, my guess is this is The Year of Collective Healing): Jan 6-8= DIVERGENCE: Parallels split that will most strongly or weakly emphasize the core themes of 2014- bringing more focus and footing to our intentions. Feb 12-15= CONVERGENCE: Parallels “here” that are working on growing closer to tentative relationships & dropping barriers/inhibitions in the process, merge with those realities that have already done so. Mar 29-31= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge that wish to bring focus back to projects, plans, future anticipations and coordination through Cooperation and Community. - Apr 5-9= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge that branched off as far back as Childhood. This may cause dreams to come up bringing back nostalgic symbols/memories from our childhood and any past lives resonating with that. May 17-19: CONVERGENCE: A subtle or obvious haunting, distracting sense that how we’re doing things may need to change- merging us into parallels where we are already doing things that matter more to us. Jun 3-8= DIVERGENCE: Those involved in this nexus branch off parts of themselves not willing to participate in/contribute to the changes needed to create new paths for their life. This brings a sharp halt to those that see their ideas for change would simply not work, so they then clean out their mind/heart of these attachments. - Aug 25-30= MAJOR CONVERGENCE: Parallels that have similar realizations about global or environmental conflicts now merge. On a smaller scale, versions of us that are exploring internal conflicts & indecisiveness about commitments/directions now shift to either a conscious choice toward personal/global fulfillment or a needed breakdown & rebuilding. *A branch of realities from the 1700s CE where the US wasn’t founded & wide-scale religious, political and military oppression ensued across the globe for the last 200 years, now merge with ours- as they have gone through uprisings since the 80s against this to establish a constitution that is now birthing the US in 2014 “there”. This will either lead the US out of its seat of power for the next 20-50 years, or escalate it into a heightened position beyond all comprehension. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Private Session by Maureen.) - Oct 28-31= DIVERGENCE: Permanently-wounded aspects of us that refuse to allow healing branch off, freeing those that are willing to heal to feel relief. Nov 26= CONVERGENCE: Versions of us that are willing to heal now merge, bringing gratitude, appreciation and comfort that can bring more relief, confidence and trust again. Dec 11-13= CONVERGENCE: More parallels and people that have brought wounding to the surface come together to heal anything from across 2014. Waves of creative solutions and resources now emerge to facilitate this personal and social healing. 2015 (Studying the themes below, my guess is this is The Year of Collective Peace): Feb 25-28= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch based on choices toward -Subservience or +Devotion. This focuses us on healing parts of our life left in broken circuits, or brings out realizations of anything missing that could replenish our Submission. Mar 20-23= CONVERGENCE: A Reunion of parallels from 1999 over the Fear of Technology. They explored moving away from technology, then cleared up these fears & returned trust in it. This Nexus then explores how technological impact is accelerating & the need to either take breaks from it to return balance, or transform isolating technologies into more meaningful and intimate ones. - Apr 18-20= CONVERGENCE: A Reunion of parallels from 2002 around overreactions/phobias that veered toward Full-scale War- but then brought focus back toward greater peace, merging with our Parallels that have secured that (even with clear growing pains). Jun 20-23= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch based on our reactions to surprises happening through the month that bring shock or understanding. *In some parallels, Earthquakes happened in the Pacific Rim and New Madrid Fault. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Ask M Transcript.) - Jul 20-23= CONVERGENCE: June’s divergence separated parallels creating war/oppression & parallels creating equality/inclusion. This Nexus then brings all realities in that are actively evolving & exploring equality, inclusion, empathy and compassion. Aug 14= CONVERGENCE: Straggling Parallels of versions of us that gave up/stopped trying because of hardships/obstacles/struggles now return because they’ve worked on healing. As such, we feel our sense of effort, enthusiasm and energy amplify now. Sep 14= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge for those who explored isolation, separation, lack of intimacy/community etc. This Nexus then brings heightened efforts to nurture and sustain common ground, intimacy and resonance. On larger scales, this shift relates issues of immigration, borders and equality. - Oct 18= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch to bring shifts in power among countries. Nov 22-23= DIVERGENCE: Realities that are concerned with the balance of practical reality with fantasy/illusion, or an extreme entrenching in one or the other now branch off. For most older souls, this is a reality check nexus that can be used to practically nurture or plant our fantasies into reality. Dec 25-28= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch to explore dreaded or anticipated versions of the future, through choices of self-nurturing or self-preservation. 2016 (The Year of Collective Turning Points): Jan 10-15= CONVERGENCE: Similar parallels reunite where certain fragments just died vs had died some time ago. Most who die in the next 3 Months are in final closure of all their parallels. Feb 8-17= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A Planetary Shift of parallels to more Peaceful and Humanitarian Paths, more Turbulent and Disruptive Paths, or more of “The Same”. This Nexus feels like letting go of directions you’re no longer interested in & a renewed conscious focus on what you are. Mar 19= MINI DIVERGENCE: A possible shift related to events caused by a high-profile event or person representing the force of a population/collective. If it occurs, it will narrow paths forward. - Apr 22-29= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: The previous Energy Shift on April 16-19 that emphasized Power Struggles & where the personal, national or global Center of Power is, may now result in a shift in Power that closes down several potential parallels. May 30= MINOR DIVERGENCE: A small but intense shift that emphasizes a major event in your individual life or on a larger-scale for the country or planet. - Jul 29= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off for those that are interested in escalating toward greater war. Sep 26= BREAKTHROUGH: For those in a Turning Point, this Nexus emphasizes Breakthrough and leaves behind the options of Breakdown. If this shift doesn’t come, you may feel a huge release from gravity to float above+be free from patterns of burden and demand to recreate yourself, refresh your perspective, bring relief from fears so you can catch your breath & take on the rest of the year with vitality, creativity and love. - Nov 7-10= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A dramatic shift to work on Collective Karmic themes. All living on the planet are on a path that seeks to heal the world on a profound and lasting level- though it may not look like so as the wounds have to be clearly identified and pronounced & the creation of peace is not always pretty. There are 2 Major Karmas being tapped into now. Younger Souls are working out Karma around choosing Collective Responsibility and Self-Discipline vs Self-Preservation and Oppression. Older Souls are working out Karma around choosing Passivity/Complacency and Convenience vs Being Awake+Taking Action to Resolve Legitimate Threats. Dec 13-21= CONVERGENCE: A slow, lengthy merging of all realities coming together on the verge of “global revolution”. 2017 (The Year of Collective Humanitarianism): Jan 19-23= CONVERGENCE: Same as the December Convergence above. Feb 26-Mar 2= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A nexus bringing the first signs of Relief from recent events. It is an exit ramp for those interested in extreme versions of reality which removes that element from our parallels to help improve morale for those “here”. Mar 30= MINI DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off for those in our Energy Ring that are actively refusing Pleasure or Peace. - Apr 15-20= DIVERGENCE: Certain Parallels branch towards themes of War. May 19-21= DIVERGENCE: A potentially dramatic shift to more meaningful, acceptable and inclusive negotiations among world leaders- or more turmoil, shock and extremism. - Jul 20-23= MAJOR CONVERGENCE: A great clash between discordant realities arises- where how deeply you’re invested in being right vs being fair comes up, due to strong Declarations made by you+others toward one side or the other. On a Personal Scale, this shows as a strong sense you must choose between staying locked in -Subjectivity or finally embrace +Objectivity. For the Collective this divide shows in the Political Arena. Aug 21= DIVERGENCE: Branchings related to the Total Solar Eclipse that prompt unexpected effects triggering collective panic/shock or wonder/awe (especially in the US). Sep 20-23= DIVERGENCE: More branchings that shift Parallels toward various extremes for the next 100 Years. As they split off, they act like release valves bringing greater relief from pressure, or a continued sense of trust+calm in collective progress over collapse “here”. - Oct 10-14= DIVERGENCE: A branching with unknown effects. Nov 21= CONVERGENCE: A mix of Parallels where growing fears/anxiety/uncertainty were met with successful solutions now converge, bringing a fairly pivotal time for healing & problem-solving that will unfold over the next 3 to 6 Months. Dec 18-22= CONVERGENCE: An unusual merging of parallels that have “failed” and “succeeded” share in common extremes of climate & power struggles. The same conditions exist across these realities, but there are differences in the people's capacity for resolving these daunting scenarios. A wave of “refugee” parallels that moved into hopelessness are integrating into this reality to seek help & this brings a sobering vision+awareness of the larger-scale issues for those who have been ignoring reality. 2018 (The Year of Collective Revolution): Dec 23 2017 - Jul 11 2018= NEXUS BUBBLE: The Ms say that Nexuses are like synaptic pathways for the mind of Human Sentience to explore various passages of thought, emotion and action. A Nexus Bubble however, is like a neural cell that gets so dense with Karmic and Self-Karmic thoughts, emotions and actions it weighs humanity down. As such, we are forced to deal with these patterns of karma & self-karma until everyone on the planet can see it's a problem- and so any sense of personal reality is then flipped upside down so we can see the collective reality around us. Nexus Bubbles tend to occur during a monumental Paradigm Shift from one Soul Age to another, as there is a pivotal lesson learnt at these times that changes the course of life forever. In our case, we are shifting from a Young Soul Paradigm to a Mature Soul Paradigm- and the karma & self-karma at hand is one of humanity continuing to perpetuate and allow all forms of INTENTIONAL VIOLENCE to occur indefinitely. During this period, we have learnt that we are all a part of LIFE, and that the idea that we all have separate personal lives is an illusion. As such we are facing the fear that we can't divide, separate, escape, compartmentalize ourselves from the world- and realizing a deep truth that we are all interconnected and always will be. Through this, Humanity is en route to generating a reality of GLOBAL UNITY, but this will play out in both negative and positive ways. --- July 12-21= NEXUS BUBBLE COLLAPSES, bringing both DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE. This shift is characterized by a strong sense of acceleration, intensity and escalation. The Divergence is focused on a Liberation of incompatible & disparate parts of everyone that were bottled up in the same reality throughout the Nexus Bubble. The Convergence is focused on various parallels of us Listening to our Core Voice- cutting off or through all the noisy bullshit voices around & inside us to hear at least one voice within or around that says we matter to & in this world Aug 25-27= CONVERGENCE: A merging of parallels seeing "strength in numbers" that are willing to address, shift and resolve the looming potential of war & great conflict. This marks a rise in serious awareness & consideration of the reality of war, as part of an effort to update the growing battle throughout the last few decades between Young Soul ideas of Conflict as necessary for Growth, and Mature Soul ideas of Compassion as necessary for Growth.

    Energy Report: JUNE 2011

    ENERGY REPORT JUNE 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY began the annual shift in Platforms among fragments on the Physical Plane. Sometimes this goes smoothly, and sometimes this brings great agitation. At some point before June, most fragments go through a 3 day to 2 week review of the progress made on their Platform for the ending cycle, and begin calibrating the Platform for the new cycle. There are various cycles for various layers of Platforms, so we refer here only to the annual Platform. The yearly Platform is a general theme of interest that is generated by Essence, and not by Personality, and so can be a conscious or subconscious focus for the Personality. The more one manifests Essence, the more one tends to see the patterns that are a part of the annual Platform. (more on platforms from 2008 http://our.truthloveenergy.com/topic/39-michael-speaks-april-2008-platforms/) However, the 2010 - 2011 Platform Cycle did not allow much room for exploration of Platforms, at least on a conscious level. This has led to many fragments experiencing a phase of agitation as the shift in Platforms happens, much like the agitation or panic one may have when handed yet another task when a previous task is incomplete. For those experiencing the agitation and distraction, we will remind you that Platforms are not tasks to complete, but are simply specific perspectives through which to interpret experiences over a given period of time. There are many who do not know their Platform, or what a Platform is, and they manage just fine. For the older soul, however, we know that there is an intuitive sensitivity to the fact that there are various layers of “you” seeking to accomplish and experience various themes. That sensitivity and intuition will alert you to those various levels that are being unfulfilled, but it will help you to put that at ease if you realize that this alert is not to be used for self-punishment or disappointment, but is an alert that is no different from a reminder that you are hungry. When you are caught up in your day, and “forget” to eat, there will come a time when your body reminds you to eat. This is the same on an internal, intuitive level, when it comes to various levels of intentions to fulfill. It would make little sense to be distracted or upset with having forgotten to eat, so the focus would simply move to getting something to eat. In terms of fulfilling Platforms, it makes as little sense to distract yourself away from moving on to the immediate intentions for fulfillment. Turn to the tasks at hand, to the life in front of you, and tend to the patterns and themes of life from where you are, rather than halting any sense of progress, or resisting movement forward, in an attempt to “make up” for “lost time.” As Platforms begin to take shape over June, this sense of intuitive agitation would most likely pass, even for the most distracted of students. June also marks the final month of emphasis on Caution Mode, and Relationships. Many students are in the process of looking at relationships through the filter of Caution Mode, moving some key relationships from a negative state of Phobia (distance or paralysis from fear) and into a positive state of Deliberation (a conscious, intentional relationship). To the extent that this renewal of relationship has been accomplished, is the extent to which June would feel like “free time” that can be used for creativity, play and enjoyment, with very little on the agenda. For many of our students, June may simply feel like time passing, or be a rather insignificant month in the scheme of things, except in terms of world events, which may be the focus for those not focusing on personal relationships. However, for those who still struggle with revitalizing, recalibrating, and reuniting within these key relationships, June may begin to feel a kind of “back against the wall” position regarding them. These key relationships would probably reach a breaking point, falling out of one’s more immediate circle of intimacy, or accepting a move further out into a more social or acquaintance position. The key for moving any of these key relationships back into a positive space is to do so with INTENTION, or Deliberately. These relationships will not heal themselves, and waiting for one or the other to do the work will probably not work. Doing the work of healing these key relationships must be considered your own work to do, if these relationships are of any importance to you. Taking into consideration the other Overleaves for the year may help in those relationships, as well: Goal of Flow; Attitude of Pragmatism, and the Chief Features of Impatience and Martyrdom. To translate: these key relationships may have fallen into Inertia, the negative pole of Flow, and are at a relative standstill. Your efforts to heal them would help move them back into Freedom, the positive pole. These key relationships cannot be helped by looking at them through Dogmatism, the negative pole of Pragmatism, but can be helped tremendously by streamlining your perspective through Practicality, or Efficiency, the positive pole. In other words, cutting out all of the “bullshit,” speculation, and imaginary hurts, however justified the feelings, would help these relationships tremendously. And finally, these relationships are not constrained by Time or Space, which are factors in the fears related to Impatience and Martyrdom. The fact that Time and/or Space may have come between you is nothing to fear. It is simply a part of the Physical Plane, and part of the experiences of being Human. Even the best of relationships must contend with distance in time and space, and so do the worst. Remember that Caution is about the refining of Thoughts as a means to fulfill a Relationship or Goal, and so what you THINK is vital here. Letting the go of the speculative is vital. Helpful thoughts over JUNE might be: 1) IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU THOUGHT, BUT ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK Bringing your thinking back into the present does not mean forgetting the past, or diminishing your hurts, but about empowering you to create something better than what you remember. If this energy report resonates with you, and you choose to heal a relationship, then what you think NOW is far more important than what you remember, or what you thought in the past. 2) SAVING OR HEALING A RELATIONSHIP DOES NOT MEAN TAKING THE BLAME Blame is never helpful in healing any relationship, internally or externally. Blame is a distraction from what one CAN do, feel, and see. Even if blame is accepted by the blamed, it anchors the relationship in the past in a way that it can never truly evolve beyond. However, freeing a relationship from the emphasis of Blame can free a great deal of energy and inspiration to be used for what one CAN do, feel, and see, and so the efforts to heal that relationship are far more effective. Once the hurdle of Blame is overcome, then the process of taking responsibility is also freed for both parties, which is usually far more satisfying for all involved. Encouraging another to take responsibility for his or her part in disappointment, failure, hurt, etc in a relationship cannot be done through Blame. Responsibility can only be accomplished through awareness, and if the emphasis is simply on one party being “right,” then the process of responsibility on all parts is lost to the priority of simply being “right.” Taking the first step in being responsible helps set precedence for the other involved to do the same. This applies to relationships within, as well. Rather than blaming the self for disappointments, failures, etc, focus on taking first (second, third, etc) steps of responsibility, and then use that freed energy previous used for blame, and use it for the necessary healing. DATES OF INTEREST JUNE 11th - a divergence Nexus with an emphasis on keeping relationships in, or shifting them out of personal, meaningful inner circles JUNE 24th - another convergence Nexus with an emphasis on potential, new or renewed relationships, as well as the shift of emphasis from Caution Mode and into that of the Pragmatist Attitude
  8. Earlier on, I felt like rereading all the past ERs of 2017 to see overarching patterns, so I just wrote them down below. Having the key parts in a compilation could be quite helpful and enlightening, so voila. The Nexus & Energy Shifts are not recorded below- so I'll update on those another time. November and December will also be updated. For October, I also drew from @DianeHB's session on Collective Energy. As I felt it was relevant to Greed. ---- === --- === --- === --- === --- JANUARY (Focus moves away from WHEN/WHERE to WHAT- The Goal.) SHIFT TO PRIEST Priest Energy focuses on inspiring the masses/whole. -Zeal= The capacity to close one’s eyes to suffering and use inspiration to distract from or compound that suffering. +Compassion= The capacity to open one’s eyes to suffering and use inspiration to transform and heal it. THROUGH THE HIGHER EMOTIONAL CENTER -Intuition= Finding a way through the divisions/parts of a relationship, event or life by synthesizing all input into a clear understanding. "BEING APART" +Love= Transcending the divisions/parts of a relationship, event or life- to hold the parts of the whole together with a clear heart and vision. "BEING A PART" Higher Emotion focuses on longer-term visions. Because of this though, it often defaults to the familiar+comforting EMOTIONAL CENTER as a way to understand everyone's differing visions: -Sentimentality= Being attached to the heart of an event, person or experience- lacking logic. "CLOSING THE HEART" +Perception= Bypassing logic to open to the heart of an event, person or experience. "BRINGING CLOSE TO THE HEART" IN SUBMISSION Submission is an active motivation to matter and make a difference. -Subservience= Blind and unquestioned obligation or obedience to a person/activity/cause. +Devotion= Love, loyalty and enthusiasm for a person/activity/cause. --- 7 QUESTIONS IN A PRIEST YEAR 1. How willing were you to share in the enthusiasm that is expressed and exhibited by others? 2. What responsibility did you take for how you reflect the best of others back to them? 3. What responsibility did you take for what you saw reflected about yourself in others? 4. How willing were you to ask for help? 5. How willing were you to see that another may need help, even if not asked? 6. How much freedom did you allow for others to evolve at their own pace, regardless of your contributions from your own position in your own evolution? 7. How much intimacy did you allow in your life, even with your wounds, your shame? How willing were you to allow the wounding and shame of others into your life that is not your own? (counting as one element here) FEBRUARY Recommendation to use ELEGANCE to not BURNOUT= the process of harnessing fury and stretching this out into calmness. This is done through 3 Criteria: Simplicity= Showing up in the world to participate in causes without losing yourself. Giving yourself personal space to grieve/recover & acting on efforts that allow necessary rest. Pleasure= Increasing your energy, passion, spirit and confidence by allowing yourself to live, celebrate, share affection and have fun in life. Freely and openly acknowledge the effectiveness of any+every effort, support and progress. Ingeniousness= Simply being creative and responsive with the options and resources you have to affect change. MARCH We entered a RECESS OF PLEASURE and enjoyment- or DEFINED THE HOW/WHY/WHAT OF OUR CAUSE, and practiced/nurtured PEACE in our efforts. APRIL (Focus moves away from WHAT to HOW/WHO- The Mode.) SHIFT TO PASSION -Identification= Seeing yourself/your potential in another person/thing/event etc. So your identity is entangled and dependent upon that. There is a focus here on blaming, attacking and destroying what you don't want to see about yourself (Younger Souls)- or exploring, realizing and sorting through old ideas of yourself that you still depend upon+retreat into, but no longer serve you, confine your potential and need to evolve (Older Souls). +Self-Actualization= Seeing these reflections as inspiration for how you can be more of your authentic self & realize new potential. There is a focus here on being enthusiastically curious about new terrains of self-discovery, and feeling a drive to own & be more of yourself. MAY This month helped us pay attention to how the world reflects us. There are 3 WORLDS OF REFLECTION: The IMMEDIATE WORLD reflects your deepest fears and greatest loves about your self, body and life. This is anything that regularly catches your awareness/engagement. It's like your metaphorical home and exact position in life. The INTERMEDIATE WORLD invites you to new experiences that reflect your potential directions. This is anything that inconsistently but repetitively captures your awareness/engagement. It's like your metaphorical neighborhood in life. The EXTENDED WORLD reflects the larger population of humanity as a whole, and all its worst and best qualities. This is anything that isn't part of the above two worlds, but greatly impacts them from beyond. It includes politics, climate, world events, catastrophes etc. It doesn't reflect you, only your part in the whole of humanity. JUNE We ask ourselves vital questions: DID YOU FIND SOMETHING OR SOMEONE TO CARE (even more) ABOUT? DID YOU DECIDE WHERE AND HOW YOUR ENERGY IS IN BEST SERVICE TO SELF AND OTHERS? DID YOU CREATE OR DEFINE A FOCUS FOR EFFECTING CHANGE THAT WILL BENEFIT SELF AND OTHERS? --- Causes are lumped into 3 Categories: JUSTICE (Causes for Truth) - Equality, rights, progression... FREEDOM (Causes for Love) - Relief, rescue, recovery, protection... EMPOWERMENT (Causes for Energy/Beauty) - Access to resources, education, choice, improvements, healthcare, healing... With 3 Contexts: PERSONAL= Cause for My Life. GLOBAL= Cause for Our World as a Whole. UNIVERSAL= Cause for the Collective Evolution of Humanity. For those who don't find/create a Cause, they have two choices: 1. They may simply resort to a false sense of a cause by targeting other Causes. 2. They may stop looking- returning to a state of rest, care and distance rather than a state of cause. --- The Ms talk about the Reality that Emotional Tectonic Plates within us and within the masses must eventually shake up, break through and bring relief from any building pressures. This can feel chaotic and disorienting, as we must then refocus- allowing the time, energy, love, truth and patience needed for us to perceive beauty again. But we have to be willing to see/feel/know beyond what we know to do so. JULY (Focus moves away from HOW/WHO to WHY- The Attitude.) SHIFT TO REALISM -Subjectivity= Reality is only what is externally real- or Reality is only what I feel to be true. Resigning to/Entrenched in the fact that "It is what it is." +Objectivity= Sorting through experiences without losing yourself in them- to better understand & be fair/just/impartial. Realism learns that there is always more to know, more information, more context, and that any moment of understanding is only an approximation of fuller understanding that can come with more time, experience, information, and context. Subjectivity seeks righteousness, justification and presumption. Objectivity understands fairness, justice and context. AUGUST Reality shifts into SURREALISM. -Convolution= The reactionary process of distorting, over-complicating and twisting a new system/symbolism beyond recognition- while seeking to maintain a strict, oppressive and outdated one that sustains the old reality while creating such confusion+complication that participants are too exhausted/overwhelmed to see beyond what's defined for them. +Revolution= The responsive process of overthrowing a strict, oppressive or outdated system/symbolism to create a new system/symbolism that is freer and helps move all toward necessary variation and evolution in life. --- Essentially shows up as a need to escape/panic/disconnect/overwhelm (aka. needing to take care of what's immediately affecting you first)- or a wake up call to action/solution/participation (aka. needing to define your cause, aim toward contribution, and nurture networks of support+stability). SEPTEMBER Focus shifts to ENDURING LIFE as a way to return to/find/create moments where you can LIVE IT. If leaning to Subjectivity/Convolution there is a sense that "This should not be happening to me/us. We are fucked." There is only a focus on deserving, earning, suffering and surviving. If leaning to Objectivity/Revolution there is a sense that "I am/We are going to be OK." There is a focus on navigating, trusting, surrendering and experiencing moments of pleasure. OCTOBER (Focus moves away from WHY to WHEN/WHERE- The Chief Feature.) A RETURN TO HIGHER EMOTIONAL CENTER brings increased water, weather and geological shocks for the months to come. SHIFT TO GREED Greed is an extreme fear of not having enough and an effort to destroy anyone who doesn't deserve more than you- because you're worth more than them, worth more than what you have, and have done enough to earn what you want/need. Greed isn't the same as NEED. The latter is about legitimate scenarios where your access to resources is diminished, while the former is about deserving and violent or manipulative solutions. -Voracity= Destructively, violently or belligerently taking, hoarding and consuming what you want/need to keep others from having it. You feel you'll never have what you crave, never notice when you do have it and even if you do, you crave more. So you're consumed by your craving. -Appetite= Aiming toward what you want, so that once you have it you're satisfied and can breathe- for now. So you simply crave what you want/need to consume. --- The Solution to Greed is to find/create solutions through COMMUNICATION- networking, learning, being clear and honest. The anxiety+pressure of Greed can be lightened by a few exercises: 1. NURTURE YOUR CALM, centeredness and clarity. Add moments before making choices so you can practice mindfulness, create breathing room and be as clear as possible in aiming for solutions. 2. Focus on acts of GIVING/SHARING generosity and kindness from or between you+others that reveal strengths, resources and effectiveness. 3. Practice PSYCHIC HYGIENE through conscious breathing, baths, showers, swimming, biking, laughing, healthy socializing, chakra scrubbing, gemstones etc. Anything that helps ground, soothe, clear or open your heart/mind/body, and returns a sense of safety. 4. SURRENDER TO YOUR GRIEF. Rather than avoid, distract from or rise above it- process and understand the truths of it. 5. SNAP OUT OF IT. This helps return a reality check of patience, kindness and trust so that you remember you're not trapped- you're in a phase, life cycle or passing challenge.
  9. ENERGY REPORT October 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) OCTOBER begins an emphasis of the collective energy contributing to the Chief Feature of Self-Destruction. Because of the familiar cycle of time measured in years and the familiar seasons that tend to mark transitions symbolically or literally, the year moves through these natural phases of Action (Goal), Inspiration (Mode), Expression (Attitude), and Assimilation (Chief Features). Assimilation is associated with the Chief Feature because by the time the experiences of the year have come to settle, the individual and collective will have generated a pattern toward resolution and peace around the events of the year, or they will have generated a pattern toward conflict and fear. For many, the “holiday season” can be one of unplugging from or plugging into a higher state and moving into true assimilation, peace, gratitude, and celebration. For many, this same period of time is experienced as resignation and disconnection and overwhelm, with emphasis on losses, regrets, mistakes, anger, anxiety. Depending on how much of the Action was fulfilled, how much Inspiration was exchanged, and how aligned perception was with reality (or vice versa), the season of the Chief Feature is either mild or severe in its challenges and impact. This year brings with it a rather severe impact and intense challenge. Self-Destruction is the fear of worthlessness. It is a reactionary defense against any challenge or questioning of one’s value, place, contribution, and meaning. Having your position in life, in relationships, in the universe questioned is natural. It will happen from within and from outside of you. The questioning is important, healthy, and encourages awareness. In addition to the natural and healthy questioning of one’s place, value, contribution, and meaning, there will come different answers to those questions that are both your own and that of others. You must sort through these answers to discover the truth of your value, place, meaning, and contribution. The range of answers is nowhere near as important as the answers you choose to emphasize, allow, and ultimately accept. The “best” that Self-Destruction can do in defense against the sense of worthlessness is to Sacrifice. This shows up in many different ways. It shows up in the literal sense that a person puts every other position of value and meaning above himself or herself as a way to prove worth. It shows up as aches, pains, ailments, and other disabling effects that give visible and viable reasons for why one cannot contribute or be of any value to anyone. It shows up as one who loses himself or herself in work to support a family. It shows up in the individual who decides his life only has meaning if it is willing to be given in place of someone else’s, such as the person who drowns while rescuing someone drowning, or the fireman, or the police officer who dies in the line of duty protecting another. Sacrifice is upheld as a virtue and one that unquestioningly proves or secures one’s value or protects one’s reasons for lack of value, but Sacrifice is a falsehood. As with all positive poles of Chief Features, none are truly “positive,” as they are still rooted in fear and do nothing to solve the problem from which the fear arises. Sacrifice is often confused as Devotion, but Sacrifice is very different. Devotion is a choice. Devotion serves both the giver and the receiver. Sacrifice is presumed to be the only choice, if a choice at all. It is motivated by the appearance, by the guaranteed position of value or the deflection of questioning value. Sacrifice demands recognition, or deflects and redirects it. Devotion tends to be quiet and personal, while Sacrifice is dramatic and theatrical. Self-destruction in the negative pole is Suicide. This is the “ultimate” Sacrifice. Suicide is a statement, the ultimate demand for recognition and proof of one’s value and meaning, or the ultimate condemnation and ending of one’s questioning of value. This shows up in literal suicide, in suicide bombings, in terminal illnesses and any chronically destructive addictions or habits. This is not to say that all terminal illnesses are Self-Destruction/Suicide, of course, but many debilitating and terminal illnesses have some roots in the deep uncertainty of one’s value and meaning in the world, relationships, in life. As October unfolds there looks to be a kind of “quiet before the storm” as Sacrifice and Suicide begin to formulate as the “only solutions” to the question of value and worth for many. The unrolling of Self-destruction looks to be forming on individual and collective levels in ways that have not been seen in some time, and plummeting deeply into Suicide. This may show up over the next three months as large accidents or multiple accidents, catastrophic weather, widespread illness, more suicide bombings, assassination attempts, economic fluctuations, etc. As the Young and Baby Souls move into a newfound and newly-realized minority position among the Mature Souls, their investment in their sense of value and meaning in the world is shaken. They only know solutions that implement Competition and Order. When under threat and feeding into collective fears that show up as Self-destruction, the healthy versions of Competition and Order are reduced to Corruption and Chaos. The Young Souls will resort to Corruption as a means to secure their positions while the Baby Souls will prove their value by dismantling all sense of Order and civilized behaviors so as to prove how valuable they have been in upholding their idea of Order. Eventually, both the Young and the Baby will find their positions of value and meaning and realize it was never under threat, but when a Soul Age has dominated the planet for over 2000 years, this transition into a Mature Soul Age may not come easily. This is not a doom-and-gloom prediction or one shared with you to worry you, but it is where humanity is at the moment. To provide you with anything that would distract from this reality would be irresponsible of us as teachers. This is a moment in your history, once again, to know just how much you do matter, how much you do make a difference, and how you can hold your part in the patterns of peace, inclusion, and compassion even amid the waves of Sacrifice and Suicide that may challenge you. Some of you already know this strength as you have already come across some form of Sacrifice or Suicide in your life this year, either from within you or from around you. Whether this rises from within or comes at you from around you, it is the same strength necessary for navigation. As you come to recognize the patterns of Self-destruction around you and/or from within you, it is helpful to remember that this is always about WORTH. To deal with this in personal terms is fairly obvious and accessible for treating, but when it comes to world events that unfold as a result of Self-destruction, it can be quite daunting. However, it is still important to know that even on a grand scale, it is about WORTH. It is about people fearing their loss of value and meaning and contribution. This does not excuse the destructive effects, but it can help you to soften your own defenses and reduce your fears and stresses around the events that are often difficult to understand. In many cases where stress runs high because of world events and collective fears it is because it is difficult to understand. We can state with confidence that you will never understand the full range of dynamics at work that generate the behaviors of Self-destruction, but you can start with WORTH. Letting yourself know this truth that is at the core of the behaviors, world events, and collective fears can help you to satisfy that part of you that seeks to understand. Once you have that grain of truth that helps you understand, you can then focus on the truth of what you can and cannot do to make a difference, yourself. This is important because if you do not satisfy that sense of need for understanding, then you will take on and contribute to the energy generated as Self-destruction as you question your own helplessness and uselessness in a world that seems out of control and spiralling into chaos. It is about Worth. People want to matter. How they want to matter is not always in ways that serve others. You cannot always control how others wish to matter, but you can sustain your own peace, your own contribution to the patterns of life by doing what you can to honor your own value, the worth of those around you, and to nurture gratitude and appreciation even amid chaos and challenge. So as you move through October, you will see the chaos and challenges around you or even coming up from within you, but for your sanity, your health, and your sense of value and meaning in the world, it can be helpful to always add to your day a firm and clear awareness and focus on that which matters to you, allowing gratitude and appreciation to come in even as you may think it must be put off until there are fewer challenges and less chaos. Your gratitude, appreciation, and nurturing of what matters to you does more to help the world than ignoring the challenges, evading the chaos, or distracting yourself with routines, behaviors, or habits where you lose yourself. It is one thing to “take a break” from the world, and quite another to pretend it does not exist as it does. October is your chance to gain your footing so that you can be in the world, but not be knocked around by it. A practice in being in the world and making a difference in what you can make a difference, while allowing room for others to get their somehow, someway. If you can help others to find their way, do so, and if you cannot, then your priority will always and only be your part in the equation. We can suggest that October be used to regain your bearings, to calm down, to heal, to center yourselves, to own your power to make a difference and to embrace your worth, and to encourage the worth and value in your loved ones. This may not change the world overnight, but it can help your personal world to sustain some peace as the world around you works out how it will return to peace. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): October 15th -- ENERGY SHIFT - BRACING FOR IMPACT - We cannot find a better phrase through this channel to describe this energy shift, but a less-dramatic term may be READINESS. However, we choose the more “dramatic” phrase because it captures the sense of knowing one is ready for the drop from the top of the Roller Coaster. We also prefer this phrase because it emphasizes that your body cannot always control how it reacts to threat, so it may tense up, stress, and move into Fight or Flight, but in the same way that one rides a Roller Coaster, you can hang on for dear life and enjoy the excitement of the ride, or close your eyes and scream in terror and panic that makes no difference beyond adding to the noise. NO NEXUS in OCTOBER HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER October: WATCH AND LEARN - You may not like what you see coming up in the world or even from within you as potential Self-destruction creeps into clarity, but you are here. You are a part of this. You may not have control over the momentum of collective patterns, but you can learn better how you contribute to the patterns of your life as they emanate outward into your world, and how you can improve upon your contributions that do have wider impact. Pay attention to what keeps coming up for you to change, to improve, to make a difference. Listen to the invitation. Many of you know you are sensing these internal prompts, these impulses, to take the risk, to break from convenience, to take the leap into some change that you know improves your life and the world. Watch how the world around you or within you moves through their growing pains, and hold your innocent and wise trust in life, in your body, in your loved ones, in each other, and in humanity to evolve from these experiences because, eventually, people watch and learn and listen to the prompt to make a difference. If you are not listening, not learning, and if you are ignoring your own inner invitations to improve your contributions to the dynamic health of your body, your relationships, and the world, then there is much to learn from how the next few months unfold. If you are already in a place where you feel confident and comforted by your contributions to your personal and collective world, then all you can do is continue this. It matters. All of your choices matter. All of you matter.
  10. ENERGY REPORT JULY - AUGUST 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY marks the shift of emphasis for the year from that of Caution Mode, to that of the Attitude of Pragmatist. As the year “unfolds,” each element of our interpretation of the year builds upon itself, so that the actions that set in motion the Goal for the year are then built upon for the exploration of inspirational elements of the Mode and relationships, and those give rise to how the expressive Attitude for the year plays out. Depending upon the collective work of holding the Attitude in the Positive Pole, the “season” of Chief Features can either be mild, or devastating, either on individual levels or collectively. Again, regardless of your own Overleaves, if you participate in the world in any way, the collective forces that are generated in patterns, here described in Oveleaves, will be a force to which you contribute, and from which you will be influenced. For instance, July marked the shift into Pragmatism. Even if your Attitude is Idealism or Realism, the emphasis in “the world” on the spectrum of that Pragmatism brings is going to be a part of everyone’s dynamic as part of the scheme of things. The Attitude is our way of describing one’s basic philosophy, or one’s basic filter for interpreting the world, and how one tends to bring that philosophy into the world. Pragmatism is basically the philosophy of theorizing, experimenting with those theories, and then choosing the most practical. Pragmatism is the building up of theories from the processing of one’s own experiences, and then applying those theories to substantiate them, which gives rise to new experiences, which then give rise to new theories, and so on. However, Pragmatism is not just about the collection of one’s own experiences, but the consideration and inclusion of other people’s experiences and theories along the way. It is through the experimentation and application of all theories that Pragmatism is healthy as an Attitude, or is in the Positive Pole of Practical, or Efficient. Pragmatism is not about convenience or lazy interpretations, when in the Positive Pole, but a consideration of a multitude of perceptions that can work, could work, or has worked, and then choosing from those the most Practical, through experimentation. When Pragmatism falls into the Negative Pole, there is no Practice (practical), no Efficiency, and certainly very little consideration of alternative theories to one’s own. There is only Prejudice, Presumption, or Dogmatism. These words not only describe the lack of validation of the theories, but describes the blocking of challenges to one’s theories, including the very nature of varying contexts. When Pragmatism falls into Dogma, one’s perspective is locked in a way that leaves little room for the consideration of even one’s own new experiences, or alternative perspectives, that could update or clarify the original theories so that they are capable of being validated, useful, Practical. A simplistic example might be one who “knows” that he can get on the other side of a wall, because he knows that others have done so, so he rams himself into the wall. This is an experience that tells this person that ramming into the wall is probably not the most efficient or practical means for applying his theory that one can get to the other side. The Pragmatist in the Positive Pole would then try to climb it, or crawl through a window, or use the door, or just go around it, or all of the above, comparing each experience to determine the most practical solution, but also including feedback and experiences from those around him so that he can experiment with those, too. The Pragmatist in the Positive Pole knows that the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line, so to speak. The Pragmatist in the Negative Pole may simply continue to ram himself against the wall, eventually busting through, and then insists that this is the only way, or the best way, or the way that works, because it worked for him. Eventually. As July’s pattern came up, Pragmatism has come up strong in the Negative Pole, being played out in a multitude of ways in the media, particularly in terms of Politics. What works for one group, regardless of whether it works for another, are coming head to head in a most profound way. It should be noted here that all transitions into a new emphasis tend to “enter” from the Negative Pole, and then work toward the Positive Pole. It is not uncommon, then, for a Pragmatist year to have a period of Dogmatism before then moving into Practicality. Also, keep in mind that all Assimillative Overleaves “slide” to the other Overleaves as a means for manifestation. All Assimillative Overleaves are rather transparent, if you will, and though defined in their own right, tend to require other means through which to apply that definition. So the Pragmatist, then, would “slide” to the Attitude that is most Practical for the occasion, or the most useful for digging in to Dogmatism. Though an Assimillative Overleaf can use any other Overleaf in that category, a person will tend to choose one or two as habitual places to slide. 2011 shows that the collective pattern for the Pragmatist Attitude is to slide to Cynic and Skeptic. With Pragmatism currently in a state of Dogma, the way it would show up in the world, then, is through the Denigration and Suspicion that are hallmarks of the Negative Poles of Cynic and Skeptic, respectively. Cynicism is ultimately a philosophy of virtue, or the capacity for discerning and living the truth through active opposition, and Skepticism is the philosophy of doubt, or questioning through expressive means. When Cynicism is in the Positive Pole, opposition comes in the form of Contradiction, which is simply the bringing of attention to the flipside of the status quo, or the obvious. This Contradiction is solely for the purpose of presenting alternative perspectives so that the truth can be discerned. Contradiction is an invitation. When Cynicism is in the Negative Pole, it is no longer concerned with discerning the truth, but is more concerned with imposing one’s truth, which is automatically adjusted to be whatever is opposing the truths of others. This is Denigration. The cutting down of the opposition for the sake of countering his truth. When Skepticism is in the Positive Pole, doubt and questioning comes in the form of Investigation, which is an expressive means for gathering information, whereas the Negative Pole of Suspicion is still doubt and questioning, but without the communication and media of expression. Investigation asks the questions, while Suspicion keeps the questions to himself. Over July and August, one might see these elements playing out in Politics, with Dogmatism being held fast through Denigration and Suspicion. In one’s persona life, however, these same qualities may come into focus and influence, as well. The way we have seen this show up for our students is mostly in a profoundly personal way, so that the Denigration and Suspicion are within, toward the self. It could be said that because the world is moving through a phase of doubt and opposition, those tuned in to it will find they also move through a phase of doubt and opposition. The more one is hooked into the world, the more one’s phase of doubt and opposition within will parallel the methods at large, which means many of our students are going through a phase of butting their heads and hearts up against the walls of their own Dogma, and then Denigrating themselves or drowning their intentions in Suspicion. In other words, many of our students are dealing with a phase of processing failures, let downs, disappointing revisits to old patterns, set backs, etc. This may also apply to personal relationships, for some, and this might show up as feeling disappointed in someone else, seeing someone else as a let down, stuck in old patterns, failing. Whether within or between yourself and others, all of this might be played out through the butting of heads, hearts, and the insistence on one way being THE way. It will be quite important to remember that this is a phase. It is a natural part of the exploration of the Pragmatist Attitude for the year, and is revealing to all involved that there is MORE THAN ONE WAY. If any of the symptoms above resonate with our students, then it is a signal that this is a key consideration for help in moving back into the Positive Pole energies of the year: THAT THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY. And you will not comprehend the alternatives by simply digging into to Dogma, defending it with Denigration and Suspicion. To move into Practicality and Efficiency, away from Dogma, it will mean moving into seeing the opposite of what you think you see (Contradiction) and asking the questions that need to be asked (Investigation). Though we will offer the following, keep in mind that these are only for consideration, and that if you choose not to use these, you will survive as you make your own choices that are suited for your own paths of exploration. Helpful thoughts over JULY and AUGUST might be: 1) THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY HOME We have already stated that “there is more than one way,” but here we add “home.” We use the word “home” here, because for most who struggle with flexibility of perspective, it is almost always from a state of investment in what feels safe. However familiar your path to safety, or Home, there will always be other ways. You do not have to give up your sense of safety or Home, but you must consider all the ways you can get there, and when you wish for others to share in your Home, or your state of comfort and safety, you must consider that they will find their own way. And that they may not. 2) BUTTING HEADS OR HEARTS DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE BEHIND We realize this is a rather clever pun, and it was intended as such, however, the serious nature of the statement remains. If you find you are bumping up against blockages, walls, obstacles, old patterns, whether within or between yourself and another, it does not mean someone has failed, or that someone has fallen backwards; it simply means that it is time to evaluate the possibility for new ideas, applying and experimenting with new theories, and opening to alternative perspectives. 3) WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK YOUR QUESTIONS “out loud.” For those of you who have fallen into doubt as your means of sustaining or defending Dogma, it may be time to ask the questions you fear asking, or asking the questions you may not have considered asking. It may be an important step toward freeing yourself into a more Practical perspective. 4) WHEN IN OPPOSITION, INVITE THE TRUTH, do not impose it. For those who have fallen into oppositions that have led them to stand sturdy and strong with their truth as a defense of Dogma, it may be time to consider that your truth is not the only truth. Inviting the truth of others does not mean losing your own, but it can mean losing the necessity for defending it, thus freeing your perspective away from Dogma and into something more Practical. DATES OF INTEREST July is “littered” with multiple Nexus points that have most consciousness in a strange state of flux and limbo on the surface, as major shifts and rearrangements are being managed on Essence levels. Dream states may be heightened, along with demands for sleep, or at least a constant state of fatigue and disorientation. JULY 21st through 24th - a divergence (branching) Nexus with potentially explosive or implosive revelations and resolutions as a result of the process of implementing Pragmatism. Breakthroughs may occur here, or collapses into divisions that accommodate oppositions, doubts, and dogma. AUGUST 1st through 4th - another divergence (branching Nexus, focusing on accommodating the various directions of world economy.
  11. August 17, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We understand we will start with your Energy Report. This will cover the weeks from the 19th through the 1st. First we will comment that the past weekend was a rather powerful energy flux for many of you, particularly on Sunday. If you did not notice anything, this is nothing to be concerned about. Many of you, though, experienced something similar to an “energy wash.” For those participating in that “wave,” this could have been a slow accumulation or you may have been “hit” rather hard. This “wash” was not uncommon. It is a processing of parallel shifts to date. After many Parallel shifts, sometimes there tends to be what might be considered residual plans, ideas, hopes, etc., that have long begun to be fulfilled in other parallels. When an assessment occurs, which it did over the past week within the first three Cadres of your Energy Ring, a “fresh” alignment occurs similar to a “domino affect”; an alignment among Entity and Cadre Members. There are many ways to look at it, but it is a purging. This is sometimes laced with depression and grief for the first day, even preoccupation with your mortality. Then the stronger, more focused motivation, inspiration, and feelings set in. This then sets up what the next couple of weeks are about. Though some of you may not have experienced what we just described, most of you still are processing your Intellect and Attitudes toward your current life. That is what this “season” is about in general. For the next two weeks, the 19th through the 1st, this appears to be energy moving through Sentience that will allow a respite from your personal Chief Features. Every year there is an opportunity at some point, a window, that allows the Personality to have a “break,” an ability to experience perception without Chief Feature. The next two weeks appear to be that window. This does not mean you are not going to experience your fears or Chief Features, simply that you are in a time frame that will allow you experience the enhanced potential of alleviation from Chief Feature, if you consciously choose that. In fact, you may be highly exposed to your Chief Features, but the energy available will allow you higher consciousness in alleviating their grip. We will suggest a few things that will help, if you choose to experiment. Over the next couple of weeks you can use your body as a tool in this alleviation. You can create any physical cue you find to be a reminder, but we will suggest simple cues for each Axis. These are to be used in any single moment when you “photograph” yourself in the potential throes of Chief Feature. For Sages and Artisans, the physical cue to help you dissolve a moment of Chief Feature, is to gently SMILE. Literally Smile and generate internally a humor in the moment, an affection for your “trickster.” Smile, feel it move through your centers, and then proceed. We state here that this is not a solution, it is a tool. When the Sages and Artisans can see their Fears as children simply demanding attention, they can smile, “wink” internally to acknowledge the distraction, and affectionately “scoot” the Chief Feature on. Remember times when you, yourself, were a nuisance, but merely sought acknowledgment. For Warriors and Kings, we suggest a moment to bring your attention to your POSTURE. Kings and Warriors are either too rigid while in the throes of Chief Feature, or they are wearing down and slumping, protecting the Moving Center. In your moment, simply adjust your Posture. Just for a moment, sit up straight, feel yourself return to a place of empowerment, or relax, sigh out a relief and just let your posture go. When Warriors and Kings can see their Fears as servants and protectors that are overworking or without direction, they can easily transform them. Remember times when you became overbearing in your impact on someone, but merely sought to do what you thought was “right”. Priests and Servers can use the physical cue of taking their palms and gently resting their face in them, spreading the palms and pulling the hands back as if to wash the face. Do this gently and with a conscious realization that you were hiding. This symbolic gesture will literally have the potential to remove a layer of energy you carried as a mask of strength. If you are in public, using one hand, caressing one cheek then the other, as if you are wiping away a spider web, can do a great deal in reminding you that you are “human.” If Priests and Servers can see their Fears as Healed Events that have overstayed their welcome, they can encourage a release of them, making a decision that it is not necessary to nurture or uphold these things that were once important. Remember times when you, yourself, had completed a relationship in someone’s life, knowing it was time to “move on”. Many Priest and Servers hang on to fears because they assume their release will make them lose a part of their identity. Your physical cues, Priests/Servers, go a long way in reminding you that you have an updated identity to fulfill. Scholars, your physical cue appears to be linked to two body parts, your arms and your stomach. When in the throes of your Chief Feature, we suggest making an effort to unfold your arms. This will help you feel more like a participant than an “outsider.” We also suggest taking a moment to place on palm on your stomach, one on over your Heart. In that moment, simply remind yourself, “I am alive.” Scholars can alleviate many of their fears by seeing the Fears as navigational tools, not obstacles. Some Scholars can then allow the Fears to be indications as to what they are studying next, or an indication of what they are least interested in studying and let that go. Remember times when you, yourself, have overpowered a person with your “information” without realizing the need for it was unnecessary or out of context. Your fears behave similarly in their “informing” you. All of the physical cues can be handy to any Role, but we believe these shared here are helpful specifically. We encourage you to discern this for yourselves. We will conclude this topic. We will now open for questions. [ludmila] Many of us will be meeting up in NYC in a few weeks. Were we part of the Alexandrian Mystery School, or some other study group, and if so what is the agenda for our meeting up with each other at this time? [Michael_Entity] Yes, all of you here [in the chat room] were in some way linked to the Alexandria School, but this has no bearing on your gathering in New York City. Your gathering is based on your search for your Entity Members. It is part of your paths as Older Souls and many of you are ready. We could say your only agenda is in validating what many of you have experienced as Essence Recognition. This will catapult many of you into a greater acceptance of self and your individual paths. Some of you are already aware of this, but your contact with each other, even electronically, is changing you. If you choose, trust the embrace of your old friends. [Az61] I am wondering about the sunken Russian Nuclear submarine, the men aboard, etc. I get the feeling that this incident has to do with Russia’s collective evolution after communist rule. Can you comment on it? [Michael_Entity] This event appears to have two levels/angles since one was karmic while the other symbolic. Karmically, this was a group of fragments choosing this as a means to balance previous ship sinking Karma. Nearly all involved have created deaths due to drowning an anonymous vessel. The symbolic level is in the humbling of the search and rescue efforts to require an admission of need for help. This helps move maturity in many directions. As we have said, this period of time recently has been a period of time to ASK for help. It is part of a global experience. This sinking symbolized this to a great degree for many. [Jan] What is the task phrase of Entity 3 in Cadre 1. Also what are the positive and negative poles of Entity 3 (Cadre 1). [Michael_Entity] It could be described that the Task of Entity 3 in your Cadre is “to present alternative angles on reality.” The Positive and Negative Poles of any Entity 3 are +Enterprise and -Versatility. These poles indicate the ability of Entity 3’s position within the Cadre to manifest cohesively any imaginative idea or to manifest them in pieces without depth. Imagine the differences between a complete stage production vs a variety show with no discernible theme. Entity 3’s tend to leave the most records of a civilization behind. [Dewliet] Would Michael please comment on occurrences in other parallels that have an impact on my life now, and the manifestation of such impact? [Michael_Entity] Parallels without exception never impact another Parallel, except on an informational level. Random impact would defeat their point. What can occur though is a search, either done specifically as Personality using techniques for viewing the parallels, or on an Essence Level. This search, or openness, to the various Parallels can then be bridged into making an impact on you. The only way they impact you is through your search though, never as a “surprise” or random bleedthrough. Some of you are very open to your Parallels and have many conscious/unconscious receptors “checking them out” all the time. This still does not mean they impact you on their own, it simply means you are bridging the “gap” and allowing the affect based on information and choice “here”. In the case of the “washing” we spoke of earlier, that was not an indication of other parallels impacting you, but of THIS parallel’s comprehension of paths not chosen. This is occurring with you, too. This forum is not conducive to exploring your personal parallels, but we can work with you individually or when this forum is used for that topic specifically. [MaryBV] Could Michael please expand a bit on the information available about Entity 01, Cadre 01? Perhaps a bit more information on the agreements Terri has with her entity mates on the list, a bit more information on the “rift” in the She-hulks and what the “fight” is all about, and why re there no other Kings around from the entity? [Michael_Entity] In general, the fragment known as Terri is entertainingly creating a context to explore the strengths of being female and being “strong.” She will play out many instances where her private and public life will clearly be about serious decisions centered on her personal strength in the context of a woman. This is inspiring to many fellow Entity Mates and allows dialogue, support, camaraderie, and community to evolve into a definitely tangible space, internally and externally. There are too many individual Agreements to cover within this forum and many are quite personal and “private.” We will leave her discovery and choice to act on them to her. There is no real “fight” within Entity One, merely a rift in alignment. Some of Entity One is recovering from lives chosen that created a great deal of emotional pain in other lives. That part of the Entity is spending a great deal of this life healing and recovering, sometimes manifested in territorial and reactive ways, as those who were harmed are interacted with. Another part of the Entity, those you relate to, have a different rate of comprehension and healing, therefore the work of communion and reunion can occur more fluidly. As for the Kings, they will come. They are not missing. We have seen two more Kings looking at your list, females. We believe they will introduce themselves quite clearly on their own. [Note: Yes, Barbara/Bobbie is a King.] [Momhawk] Relating back to the E-report. I definitely got ‘hit’ last Sunday (very interesting info too btw…thank you :-)…Got hit 4th, 5th and 6th chakras, ie; bronchitis, sore throat, and head cold, all at once. Michael has stated that colds are often fear related. What ‘core’ or ‘central’ fear is this reflecting that I may be ‘dealing with’ currently? [Michael_Entity] This is not about Fear in this case, it is about mourning. Considering the amount of externalized energy you have expended toward the expectation of several changes, you finally allowed the energy to just move down to a tangible level to handle the mourning. There were many versions of you being explored over the past few months. Many of those “selves” will not manifest in “this” reality. You know this. In that knowing, there is mourning in the recognition of unmet expectations and paths that will simply not “fit” in right now. Your physical symptoms are your process of the past. We suggest you to allow your move forward be freed from the distractions of what has “gone wrong” in the past. Let your body work through this all, if you choose to, and trust that process. On your daily level then, approach ONE thing with enthusiasm and renewed inspiration. Just choose one thing. Allow yourself to be concerned all you want about many things, but include at least one thing that you will simply “know” will work out. Input all that is obviously necessary for that one thing, but “know” that whatever course it takes, you have decided it will be the “right” one, no matter what the expectation. We will close here. Goodnight.
  12. November 6, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Chat – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your questions and as we understand it, Lori is first. [upstaate] I am asking for a Mini Energy Report for this month. [Michael_Entity] November marks the middle of the cycle emphasizing the processing of this year’s Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance on a collective level. This means that you have entered the psychological season, so to speak, which will allow the processing of the fears that are collectively generated in response to “inadequacies” and “vulnerabilities.” In most cases, this season of processing the collective fears is not done intimately, but played out in politics or larger-scale events. In this season, the emphasis on inadequacies and vulnerabilities has been glaringly evident in American politics. Even the concept of “Democracy” is being scrutinized to the point of revealing the absurdity of its lack of true implementation and weak points. There is a “quiet storm” brewing in the American (north) politics and November appears to be a pivotal month in defining how that will play out publicly. We are not speaking ominously, but simply stating the obvious: revelations are on the horizon and they will occur with grace or they will occur with tragedy, but probabilities show that they WILL occur; more specifically, a “domino-effect” of infrastructure collapse in what you call your current government (in the United States). When we state that that this “will” happen, we realize this word implies solid prediction, but we say that word in response to a 97% probability. In other words, the momentum is in place, regardless of how drastic a change might be made at this point, and is headed toward a “wall.” It is highly likely this momentum will hit that wall. At this time, we simply do not see your current President of the United States completing his term. We can also state this with some amount of unusual certainty because of the anticipation of those in the Astral; “all eyes” are focused for “the show.” To summarize the “mini-report,” then, in terms of world events: it appears most of you will find some kind of impact at some point as a result of the inadequacies and vulnerabilities being revealed within the current government of the United States. The pivotal period of time appears to be during this month, November, but the public results may not be obvious until later. On a more personal note, you may find yourselves walking through a period of time now wherein the flaws of OTHERS seem to be taking their toll on you. Distractions with the failures of OTHERS may be used to your advantage as a means to avoid your own flaws and vulnerabilities. This year's passage through the season of Chief Features appears to have a stronger emphasis than usual. A great many things have happened in the world over your year that have left the public angry and in want of finding someone to blame. Some years move through the Chief Feature season with ease and other years are buried in its emphasis. This year's months of October, November, and December may find each of you with at least one major challenge involving how to maneuver through the effects on you because of another person's choices or actions. It is a powerful opportunity to explore your own Overleaves, how you respond to the flaws and choices of others as they impact you, and doing this from the angle of the positive poles and make a shift in the dynamic that would normally leave you trapped. Regardless of your own Chief Features, there will still be an emphasis around you in relation to the year's chief features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. The end of your year is always a passage through the evaluation of what you accomplished in the time that has passed since beginning of the “new year.” Therefore, November usually marks the painful passage of time wherein COMPARISONS begin to be your means of assessing your days. We suggest keeping check on your own Chief Features as you begin to find yourselves comparing. Comparing is a valid process of evaluation, but many of you use it against yourselves or against others. Reminding yourselves that it is a TOOL for use, not for abuse, will help in the month ahead. [Annsge] Deciding whether to follow up Lori's question….What are the probabilities of a complete change in government? What will this change expose? [Annsge] In US gov't? [Michael_Entity] The probabilities of a complete change are nearly inevitable, though most likely not fully implemented before another approximate 50 years. However, the current administration is precariously built in a way that as one member is: pulled into scrutiny, the entanglement from that person reveals other flaws, creating a near-cascade effect in revelation. The long-term change will be based on the exposure of a corrupt government whose impact upon the public is far more insidious and oppressive than ever considered possible. This is not sinister, but merely a result of withholding and hoarding of resources that have always been available. Much of what are concerns in the American culture and society are concerns that are utterly reversible within a single year, if resources were freed. The short-term change for which we see November as being pivotal is simply the revelation about the incompetence, manipulation, and deceit that permeates the current administration. We have always seen this presidency as the pivotal presidency that has the potential to end an outdated system of government, voting process, and public assistance. [Tmk1802] Back to basics. Is Male/Female ratio constant or does it change from life to life? [Michael_Entity] It is a constant. What changes is the ways in which this is expressed and the ways in which it is eventually balanced. The higher ratio is a good indication of how your incarnational process began, as Male bodies are 100% Male Energy and Female bodies are 100% Female Energy; therefore, if your ratio is higher Female, it is fairly safe to say that you began your incarnations in the bodies most comfortable. As the Essence evolves, so does the want for balance, so choosing bodies to counter your higher ratio begins at some point. Eventually, bodies are no longer the only means to bring balance and expression, but Events, Relationships, and Experiences are utilized. [Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself? [Tibtyk] And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious. [Michael_Entity] The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.” In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved. The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof. However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake. Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough. Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love. Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence. Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.” It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens. In all cases of experimentation YOU will be key. You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK. You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO. And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you. [llawryf121] I've posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”? [Michael_Entity] That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context. In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamourous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work. In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality. Or Manifesting Essence. The fusion of Personality and Essence into a cocreative process. We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system. They are the language of glamour [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively [Michael_Entity] Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar. [Carrot Wax 1] k, now my question has changed to extend this question to Sages and other roles :-) [Michael_Entity] The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality. This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible. In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him. The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.” Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak. The walls that isolate the Scholar are in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.” Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories. For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas. How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed. We have already addressed this issue in a lengthy session in the past, offering insights for all Roles. We will include that in the transcript for this session. In that case, we believe we have addressed Matthew's question for elaboration, and will respond to Suz's question as the final question. [Note: In lieu of adding the transcript mentioned, here is the link: Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3)] [freyaisissuz] We would like comment from Michael about exactly what is a secondary conscious channel with an agreement with Michael. Thanks [Michael_Entity] We are unclear as to what your question is. [freyaisissuz] What does Michael say is a ‘secondary conscious channel’ so students will better understand the concept? [Carrot Wax 1] is there a context this term was used in? [Michael_Entity] We do not recognize the phrase as being a part of our teaching, though one of our channels may have chosen it as a means to convey a concept. [freyaisissuz] It is information given to Al by a Michael channel. [kittlekats41] can you rephrase it Al? [llawryf121] probably should follow up with the original channel [upstaate] it was channeled that Al had an agreement with the Michaels, using the phrase, “as a secondary channel” A fragment will have an agreement to be a primary channel. What is a secondary? secondary conscious channel, that is [kittlekats41] would ‘conscious channel’ mean as opposed to a trance channel perhaps? [freyaisissuz] That's how Al understood it, Kate. [Michael_Entity] We would suggest asking that channel, as this phrasing did not originate with us. We suspect this is a phrasing used by our channels to describe a fragment with whom we have agreements to channel through, but not on a largely, public scale. It is not uncommon for certain phrasing to be generated by the channel as a means to convey a concept we have not created phrases for, ourselves. [freyaisissuz] That makes more sense, he doesn't care to go back to the previous channel. [kittlekats41] Would you have time perhaps to elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? freyaisissuz: Excellent, much better phrasing, Kathryn – Al [Michael_Entity] We do not have time, but that is simply the nature of our plane. [kittlekats41] hehehe of course, silly me:-) [Michael_Entity] We will conclude here, but include a response to that final question for the transcript. [ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO FINAL QUESTION] (Disclaimer from Troy: I am asking this question as best I understood it, but I am uncertain if I conveyed it to Michael in the way the questioner meant it.) Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? [Michael_Entity] 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 primary 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. “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 channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself or herself. 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. “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 is 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.
  13. I came across Lee Harris, an energy worker, on youtube recently. He has a very grounded but idealistic outlook on life and has a soft, inclusive voice that is heart-warming. His Energy Reports have often been quite spot on for me, and even more so for collective events. Here's his December '17 ER: An Aside: Interestingly, his take on collective energy for this month fits the word I got for myself from Essence. My key theme was said to be "ELATION"- a lightening of energy and pressure towards contentment. I'm aware of the patterns that have led up to this need for elation, but I guess I'll see for sure if it's true this month. In November, I got the word "APPLICATION" at the beginning of the month- which was true on some emotional+intellectual levels (applying the truths that I've been holding back from feeling/needing to implement.) But at the end of the month, I felt an overarching theme of GRATITUDE. A calm energy, sometimes with a lot of decompression and moments of laughter- but not overly intense. So I'm not an expert at "reading" energy but I guess I'm getting better.
  14. Energy Report September 2009 [note: Every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.] September appears to be moving in the direction of a "fresh start" for many of our students. It is the last month of emphasis on the Attitude of Idealist, which could be said to be the exploration of the "philosophy of improvement." This emphasis on the Attitude began in July, launched from what some may have been considered "high hopes," moved through August's deep sense of disappointment, distraction, and disheartenment with life as Ideals were measured against reality, and now moves into September with a more solid sense of footing. The extremes of Idealism having been explored, most can now find the balance between Naivety and Coalescence, the negative and positive poles of Idealism. For most, this appears to be showing up as some form of "fresh start," as we said, and this fresh start is most likely marked by inclusion of the Moving Center. By this we mean that ACTION is the key that appears to have been missing in the equation of your ideals for improvement of your life, self, relationships, etc. For some, this may be marked by a literal TO DO list; for others this may show up as a literal move from one location to another; and for others it may show up in the form of traveling; but in all cases, it would show up as some form of MOVEMENT. When the Attitude of the Personality is in the negative pole, it brings down the entire Personality, in most cases. The Attitude could be said to be the hub of the Personality, so to speak, around which all other components function. In other words, if your primary philosophy about life is askew, everything is askew. Therefore, the key to True Personality, (which is the energies that are "you" when governed by conscious Choice) is held in the Attitude. When one wishes to change one's Attitude, there are many ways to do so, but one of the most effective ways is to engage the most-neglected Center (Moving, Intellectual, or Emotional) in the Personality. On an individual level, this would vary, but when speaking in terms of participating in, and contributing to, the collective weather of energy patterns, this would be determined by the most common denominator that is generated out of a group, and in this case, this year, it is the Moving Center. To participate in, and contribute to, the collective pattern of Idealism this year, it would be done through the participation and contribution toward MOVING, or taking action. Despite the fact that the Moving Center has been evident in global and local events in varying degrees, it has not been as evident for many on a Personal level beyond Frustration, a negative pole description of the Moving Center, which can also be described as Frenetic. Frustration is generated when energy is moved in a direction that lacks fulfillment of intention, whereas Productivity, the positive pole, is the fulfillment of intention. If improvement is intended, then not only will thinking and feeling be required, but action will be, as well. A renovation job is not fulfilled by mere excitement and blueprints alone; someone needs to DO something. And the same goes for moving Idealism out of Naivety and into Coalescence. Put another way, you are the one who has to do the work to accomplish, transform, or embrace what you have set out to accomplish, transform, or embrace. To go further behind the dynamics that can help to bring the Idealism to the positive pole, we would suggest looking at what helps the Moving Center continue to work Productively, rather than Frustratingly: LAUGHTER. Laughter is a biological product from the higher functions of the Moving Center, which then fuels the lower, more mundane levels of the Moving Center toward Productivity, which then provides the conscious and creative navigation toward fulfillment of an Ideal (or on an individual level, whatever Attitude may be of relevance.) Laughter is vital for Productivity, and though we do refer to the physical elements of laughing, we also refer to the internal laughter that allows you to not take yourself or your life so seriously. There is a vast difference between treating yourself seriously, and taking yourself seriously. Treating yourself seriously emphasizes you as a valuable and meaningful Being, while taking yourself seriously merely emphasizes and amplifies (and defends) the question of your value and meaning. In other words, treating yourself seriously is simply another way of describing Confidence, whereas taking yourself too seriously is Insecurity. Treating yourself seriously, ironically, means being able to laugh at yourself and your experiences, creatively navigating through your hardships and disappointments, and being able to decide on your own what those experiences mean to you. September, then, may not only be a month of activity and movement, but a month that may be peppered with downtime for reflection on the comedy vs tragedy aspects of your life. Some of you may be ready to, at least, chuckle at this year's frustrations, absurdities, and tragedies, both in terms of experiences or in terms of your behavior and choices, shaking your head affectionately at the realization of your confidence and trust that has been built within you from the experiences. That confidence and trust is there, regardless of your realization of it, but your realization of it transforms it from a hidden stockpile into an collection of accessible tools for you to use for fulfilling your Ideal; your chosen direction of improvement. We remind you that we speak to those participating in, and contributing to, the collective energies we can see moving in larger patterns, but it is just as true that we have pockets of students who do not have any interest in "improvement," or Ideals, and have opted out. For those who have opted out of this energy, we have seen a rather fast-paced, but rather smooth, momentum of the year, bringing with it a sense of movement and change, but without such fluctuations and challenges. These fragments will seem to be moving right along in their protected bubbles of reality that seem untouched by the reality of ups and downs that others are experiencing, but neither reality is any more or less desirable or valid. The reality that is valid and desirable to you is the one you are experiencing; there are no exceptions. September 5th through the 7th is a NEXUS for many of our students, but just as many will experience their Nexus at various points (individually) over the days between the 15th and the 20th. This means some may be the 15th through the 17th, while others may be the 16th through the 18th, etc., but most will be around 3 days. A Nexus is a pivotal period of time where collective choices either create a convergence (a coming together of group paths/realities) or a divergence (a splintering of group paths/realities). There tend to be themes around these that help describe the direction the Nexus might take. These happen fairly regularly on a Personal level, and almost monthly on a Community level, and one to three times a year on a Global level. This Nexus is a Community Nexus, which usually means that this shift occurs in pockets of time close together that eventually "add up" to the collective shift of your community. A "Community" would be anyone remotely meaningful within your social or family circle. If you communicate with that person, he or she is a part of your community. This means that those within your more immediate circle would most likely move through the Nexus together, or close together. Keep in mind that having contact with someone is not the same thing as communicating. Not everyone with whom you have contact, even on a regular basis, is someone with whom you communicate (engage in meaningful exchange). This Nexus is a divergence, which would mean that most of you may feel a diversion of directions, a parting of paths, a scattering of attention from within your community, but this is not a "bad thing." When a divergence happens on a personal level, parts of you literally spin off into new realities that pursue different paths of reality. When a divergence happens on a community level, the community either comes together to address the various needs of the community, or the community dissolves. For most of our students, we see the emphasis moving in the direction of addressing various goals, directions, and needs within the community as a means to continue nurturing that community. This is not to say that some will not dissolve, but that most will simply find a way to multi-task toward fulfillment of group ideals. To the degree that your community addresses its needs and works together toward an ideal, is the degree to which October, November, and December would generate prosperity, feelings of abundance, and the nurturing that this year has been moving toward as a Server year. To the degree that your community loses its sense of humor, disregards its needs, and does not act, is the degree to which October, November, and December would be submerged in the exploration of panic, distraction, intolerance, and victimization, the hallmarks of Impatience and Martyrdom. Whether now, or in the future of this life, or in between lives, or in a future life, or at the end of your Physical Plane incarnations, all of you will eventually discover one of the most profound truths of your existence, and that is: Despite what you have been taught by others, or have interpreted through your experiences, life is hilarious. Put in terms more expressive of this channel: "Life is a hoot!" This Truth is not a cruel or dispassionate statement, but quite the opposite: full of deep compassion and trust. When a parent sees the humor in the "tragic" stumbling of a child, or the "lethal" embarrassment of a teen, he or she is merely seeing the bigger picture of ultimate lack of threat to that child or teen, and so it is that you begin to see your own and others' experiences as ultimately without threat, therefore leaving room for the spectrum of humor, across the affectionate shaking of the head, rolling of the eyes, snickers, giggles, chuckles, and even into blatant bursts of laughter. Extracting, interpreting, or creating laughter from tragedy is part of manifesting one's Essence as an Older Soul. You are not expected by any means to rush into that truth, and nor should you expect that of yourself as some sign of enlightenment, unless you choose to impose that expectation upon yourself, of course. This truth is one that naturally comes to light at the pace in which you integrate and comprehend your experiences, and there simply is no race to do such a thing. Many do not "get it" until the final breaths of the final life, while others "get it" in bits and pieces throughout every lifetime. It is never beneficial to force this process of realization because then one moves away from humor and and into hysterics. Life is hilarious, not hysterical. Hysterics is a defense against, and an evasion of, experiences, not an embrace and comprehension. For those of you who wonder if you've experienced the truth of the humor of your life, we can say that if you experience a tragic or challenging experience of your past as now being nostalgic to any degree, then you have a hint at the beauty that is ultimately your life. Everything taken from your lives will ultimately range from nostalgic to hilarious. We remind you that humor is simply the resolution of paradox, which is when two or more surprising, unexpected, or conflicting elements come together and then resolve into comprehension. One thing that every reunited entity shares is a "good laugh" as we go through the collective catalog of lifetimes and the comical nature of tragedy is even more glaringly revealed. Some of you already suspect, and it is valid, that we do often share "laughs" with even your own Essence, but we do promise that we never laugh AT you, only WITH you. KEY PHRASE FOR THIS MONTH: Everyone is ultimately safe. Everyone. Including me.
  15. ENERGY REPORT NOVEMBER 2012 November comes in with a fairly clear dance of symbols representing the collective fear explored this year as Stubbornness. Though not shaking the fear of change (stubbornness), these symbols do appear to be telling a story of a collective move away from that fear, by focusing on the Positive Pole (determination), and leaving the Negative Pole (Obstinance) to be emphasized by fewer in the population. As we described in our previous report, Stubbornness is showing up as a defense of one’s beliefs, philosophies, and stances, because these feel threatened. When the Negative Pole is at work, these beliefs, philosophies, and stances are entrenched, with no room for change, updating, adjustment, healing, etc., but when the Positive Pole is at work, there is still a concern about threat, but these beliefs, philosophies, and stances are held, not entrenched. There comes to be some flexibility, some room for negotiation, some sense that there is more to be considered beyond the cherished beliefs, philosophies, and stances. This Determination was exemplified by responses to the weather system named “Sandy.” Those who were entrenched in certain beliefs found they were thrown into a scenario that encouraged them to loosen these beliefs, making room for alternatives that were discovered to have never been a threat in the first place. Determination allows one to cling to the fight against change, but it allows in the reality of it. Obstinance clings to the fight against change, and does so against all indications that change is very real. If beliefs might be represented by a pillow, Determination tucks the pillow under his arm and moves forward, while Obstinance buries his face in it. As mentioned in our previous report, another way to understand these Poles is that Determination tends to have to work around other people, while Obstinacy forces others to work around oneself. The United States’ election is another symbolic exploration of Stubbornness, and where the country is (and relevant parts of the world are) in terms of feeling threatened by change. More Obstinacy will tend to be amplified in this arena, because Politics is all about beliefs, philosophies, and stances. In this election, we are seeing a sharp divide between those in Obstinance, and those in Determination, but most will be dealing with the threat of change. An aside: Though neither pole of any Chief Negative Feature is “good,” we can say that the Positive Pole is “positive” because it is often the way out of the fear. Most of November is likely to feel to many as if it is “out of their hands,” and in the hands of others to some degree that is uncomfortable, to say the least, so we expect that many will not only feel as if November is like an out-of-control tumble down a hillside (which can be fun, or terrifying), but many will also slide into Impatience and Martyrdom on the other side of the November 7th Nexus. We mentioned in our previous report that a great deal of introspection and extrospection was in order for November not to feel as if it were a drive off of a cliff, and we see that few found a balance between those extremes. This means that, even for those who did find that balance, “the world” may still seem out of sync and chaotic for a while. For those who wish to bring a quality of centering to their days, their bodies, emotions, choices, perspectives, etc., it may mean making an active effort to JUST STOP. By this, we mean that you may have to sit yourselves down, stop your body, your mind, your emotions, and call upon a stillness, a meditative state. For those who are resistant to stillness, give yourself 5 true seconds of stillness, and then release yourself. Double that within the hour. Add 5 more when you can, so that you are still for 15 seconds, and so on. Do this until you can sustain a valid state of stillness for, at least, 30 seconds. The next day, start with those 30 seconds. Then add 30 more, and so on, until you can sustain a valid state of stillness for 5 minutes. Continue to build upon this at your pace, and the stillness will become as natural as the hurricane of thoughts, emotions, and actions that might normally manage or affect your days. “Valid stillness” here is meant to describe a state of permission for everything you feel, think, and do, but as an observer of those feelings, thoughts, and actions. Eventually, this state of “observer” can carry over into your days so that you can call upon that stillness, that state of observation and clarity, that allows you to move with change. We point out the aim of stillness to be toward observation because this year is one that is fairly permeated with the Mode of Passion. In the same way that Observation Mode can “slide” to access any other Mode, so can any Mode “slide” to access Observation. This is true of any Assimilative Overleaf. The Assimilative Overleaf is accessible to each Axis. With Passion permeating this year, it can be easy for many to lose their sense of self in events and experiences, or to become overly-identified with those events and experiences. Observation can help to honor the negative pole of the spectrum of Passion (identification), while helping to bring some inclusion of the positive pole (self-actualization). Helpful thoughts over NOVEMBER might be: TRUE CHANGE IS A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE Over the course of November, it can be helpful to remember that change really only happens in perspective. The constancy of change in the world around you, in the Physical Plane, is of such a constancy, that it is cycling over and over and over again in the forms of lifetimes, civilizations, weather, geography, and by extension, through politics, spiritualities, mythologies. It is true that these change, but this is not where the True Change occurs. True Change comes only in perspective. True Change is in the capacity to see another facet, another side, another part of the whole that is a constant, or to see it in a new way. The same Sun can come over your horizon for most of your life without your noticing, but one day, it is different. It changes. Not because it changed, but because your perspective did. Its beauty disappears in the same way. True Change can only be described by Soul Age in our system, and Soul Age comes only with a change in perspective, gained from experience within a constant sea and cycle of change. To resist or deny change is to deny your perspective, to deny evolution, to deny experience. There are going to be those who do not want to change, and do not want to see change, and only your perspective can free you to experience and create True Change. There are going to be times when you wish things would not change, or that those changes are terrifying, or painful, and it will be your perspective that frees you. True Change brings about True Possibilities, True Potential, which are based within a clear picture of the tools, resources, and paths necessary and available to you for making a change that you desire. That clarity, that observer, that stillness, the essence of who you are, allows for you to make the best use of those tools and resources, and to allow room for all of the changes, desired or unwanted, along the way. DATES OF INTEREST NOVEMBER 7th - NEXUS (convergence) - the storm that resulted from the divergent Nexus on the 25th of October helped to move those who were tired of the Negative Pole of Obstinance over to more of a “positive” state of Determination, and this second “great storm” of the collective psyches may do the same, but on a greater scale, and in more convergent terms, as the United States’ election unfolds. We cannot predict results, and we can see many, but in nearly all of them, there is a “storm” that, eventually, brings about True Change, a paradigm shift that is collective again.
  16. November 21, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand that you are interested in the “energy report,” so we will begin there. As we have covered the next several weeks in our previous reports, we do not have much more to add. We can more appropriately give you any specifics that have come up as a result of the passage of time. The next two weeks appear to be a week of contrasts. This is more elaboration on what we had originally termed “surprising” manifestations. In the next weeks ahead, there appears to be a continued energy focusing on high contrasts between what is assumed or expected versus the manifestations opposed to this. This is merely the manifestations of Martyrdom and Impatience, as we have elaborated on in your past. Anyone who has Impatience and/or Martyrdom can attest to the seemingly consistent stream of experiences that push the Personality in directions unexpected. This will be played out in its highest density of manifestation over the next two weeks, possibly three weeks, as the opportunity to indulge in these Fears is presented/created. As these weeks pass, it will be meaningful to most of you to reread the previous two transcripts with the Energy Reports for more details in how to handle these energy fluctuations. It can be said at this time that each of you will most likely NOT “escape” the energy moving through your plane, as easily as is usually the case. It seems most fragments are resonating with the exponential “agitation” that has begun to unfold. The Energy we speak of would be that of the “collective” energy generated among most human sentience at any given time. In many cases, many of you can evade or avoid these energy shifts and fluctuations as easily as you would rain, but in the weeks ahead, this appears to be more “stormy” than usual and it will at least touch your attention. We simply mean that each of you will most likely find some kind of contrast against your expectations to deal with that are fairly striking compared to your usual surprises, as well as more community and global levels of surprise. For instance, a well-known figure in the acting field has recently come to terms with going “public” about her belief and experiences of “reincarnation” and this will most likely be a focus of media for a while. This may seem to be a plain example, lacking fanfare, but this is what we are trying to convey through the example. The experiences appear to range from high surprise to sheer shock, depending on your personal resonance with the energy at the time. It could then be said that the next 3 weeks or so will have a Key Theme of High Contrast (Surprise), and a Key Resolution through Surrender. By Surrender, we mean to find ways to “enjoy the ride,” to observe with a bit of detachment as a means to find the humor and adventure in your life. Many of the “surprises” will just be humorous, as that is the nature of Humor, to contradict, surprise, and present paradox. A recent example would be in the spectacle made of the fragment known as Michael Jackson. We will now open the floor to questions. [sam_nemo] My reading of the Tao Te Ching and Bhagavad Gita indicates that results are more important than means, but Michael said another time the journey was more important. [M_Entity] And what is your question? [sam_nemo] Which is more important, the ends or means? Am I misreading the texts? [M_Entity] Both are “important,” but each takes on its own importance depending on the context. In most religious texts, the emphasis is on the END RESULT because most religions spring from a need to understand tragedy and pain. In that need to understand, it is easier to satisfy the more passive states of being human, by stating that rewards are at the end, and that as long as you get there, the path did not matter. This is helpful when one is concerned with whether he or she is on the “right path or not.” In our perception, there is only the path of Choice, so there is no “right or wrong,” only Choice. Our emphasis is a bit more on the means to create a path to your liking, because you will get to the “end” no matter what... you may as well enjoy the journey. The “end” never truly comes, anyway. Therefore, in the end, it is the Journey that becomes your “heaven.” If you choose to be an active participant in your life, learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn, then it is the Journey that will be of importance to you. [clairen] At what point in Gandhiji's life did the Transcendental Soul manifest? [M_Entity] A Transcendental Soul is born. It does not manifest in the same way that the Infinite Soul does. This is because the fragment that is “in” the body is already a fragment from the Entity being represented. There will, of course, be a regaining of consciousness, but it will not be as lengthy and troubled as a single fragment's. This is why a Transcendental Soul tends to be so effective and magnetic quite early in the life. While the individual is technically a Transcendental Soul, he still exists with a Personality that will have its challenges based on imprinting or ideals. In his case, he had an emphasis on alleviating the effects of Greed, which would mean he had his own personal fears related to this Chief Feature. His Idealism, at times, would lead him into naivety as he would assume that Sexual exchanges somehow “stole” from the energy of another, or himself. We remind you that while Transcendental Souls have a “higher” perspective of everything, they are immediately as susceptible to the confusions of being human as they are of the wisdom from the Entity. [clairen] Why did he feel so guilty about sex with his wife? [M_Entity] It will help to understand that Sex was the most immediate indulgence available for the Transcendental Soul to use as a tool and example of restraint against Greed. Since this is a common indulgence, it was more symbolic than literal in his experiences. [Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death? [M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike? [Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate. [M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment's death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.” Time becomes much more malleable and while some fragments will “immediately” seek the comfort and consolation of family and friends, others will “go back” to those hours immediately following death to offer comfort, but only after the fragment itself has reached some understanding of what has occurred. There is no standard. We can say, however, that the GENERAL way of experiencing post-body is through a process very similar to what you experience in terms of waking up physically. Most of you will have your experiences following death to be very similar to your experiences of waking up each day. If you wake up grouchy, you will most likely die “grouchily.” If you wake up “bubbly,” you will most likely die “bubbly.” If you recall your dreams more readily, you will most likely recall your lifetime as readily. If you never remember your dreams, you may find that a series of “dips” back into the lifetime timeline will be a form of review. Regardless of how all of this is experienced, most fragments are immediately interested in emotional rest, healing, and comfort during what you would call the first 72 hours. [essenses] Regarding the prophesies of the indigenous peoples that say as we come to the year 2012, time as we know it will shift. Are you aware of a shift that will occur that will be very different from life as we know it now, and if so what would the change look and feel like? [M_Entity] There will always be shifts and that which is indicated by Mayans, or any other ancient or modern group, are no more or less as meaningful or meaningless as any other shift. Some groups have a calendar to point out the date, and still others are as vague as simply stating that “He will return.” We remind you that your most recent shift in consciousness globally came on September 11, 2001. Previous to this, it was in August of 1987. These shifts in perception of Time or Space or spirit or matter are not rare, though they can be more or less subtle. [essenses] Are we entering a “golden age,” 4th dimension less density? [M_Entity] Probabilities do indicate a strong inclination for world peace and continuing explorations of compassion, if this is what you mean by “less density” and a “golden age.” [essenses] Yes, I guess so as that is what the predictions say. [M_Entity] It is a Mature Soul world, which could be interpreted as “4th dimensional,” if that is your terminology, as it is the 4th soul age. [Leela] Can you please comment on the origins of what is now known as “belly dance”? By origins, I mean both geographically/culturally, and spiritual; I feel that this dance is very powerful and meaningful. What were its original purposes? Is it true that it was partially used for childbirth rituals? [M_Entity] This dance has its origins from more than is considered now, though its more traceable roots can be seen to reach into the history of what is called the Middle East or Orient. We have seen this dance as being prehistory, being a form of varying forms of power during a period on Earth when women ruled. [Leela] Is this dance a form of energy work? [M_Entity] It was used as torture as well as mating, sexual stimulation between same sexes, and birthing. The more mystical meanings began to become associated with this dance many years past its true origins. [Leela] Torture?! [M_Entity] Yes, sexual forms of taunting were used to punish males. The dancing you recognize today could be said to be a refined version of its origins, with a focus on the more spiritual aspects as it relates to images ranging from Skakti to servants of pleasure. It has always been a Moving Centered/Intellectual Part form of dancing, as it is focused entirely on control, balance, isolation, and anticipation. Or an Intellectually Centered/Moving Part form of dancing. Those who of either centering are usually drawn strongly to it. It is less about the history that draws the fragments who practice it, as it is about the resonance within the body and the ensuing resonance with the Energy of the physical plane. For most fragments who begin practice this form of meditation, blockages within the lower chakras and the Higher Moving Center can tend to be “cleared” up, releasing a storehouse of erratic energy at first, then slowly settling into the balance it naturally would have. [oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps? [M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth. [oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent? [M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.” Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized. [Mike_Val] An Oxford DNA Scientist has stated that we have originated from seven women in a book called The Seven Daughters of Eve. Can we as a race, be traced to these seven women scientifically through our DNA? [M_Entity] No. We do not see validity to this. Though this could be a distorted interpretation of the fact of your Species being based on a hybrid of 7 different species. [chrisx1] referring to the comment on the last shift in consciousness on Sept. 11, 2001, when is the next shift of significance? [M_Entity] These shifts are never predictable, but they are able to be seen in terms of probabilities. The most significant shift pending in your timeline now appears to be in or near the year 2020. A great deal of meaning is placed in this configuration of numbers, and while there will be shifts before that time, that year appears to be a pivotal year. It appears to be the first year that two major countries will share a leader, or stand as joint leaders. If this does not occur literally, it will be a strong focus in the world as to how this will be implemented when it does become feasible. It is also the first year that the country known as Iraq may first become territory controlled by another country's leader. This is already an agenda of the United States, even if not intentionally. We will conclude now. Good night.
  17. May 9, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you, we are here. One moment. We will get started with the “energy weather report” for the next couple of weeks, then take questions from the floor… Although we will be sharing what we see ahead as part of your patterns, we will bring to your attention that they are not “new” patterns, they are extensions of what each of you have taken on this year in general as Tasks. We were not able to communicate to several you through this channel in a regular format for some time, but this was not accidental, of course. We doubt highly that many of you would have found our interactions of any significance since you were inside personal intensives of your own. At this point though you are EXITING the work that it appears some of you were doing for groundwork in your lives, clearing paths for more challenging and Essence-driven work ahead. What has been happening thus far is the simple clearing of any patterns that will not work past August. Most of you consider January to be the beginning of the year, but for your Bodies, this is April. In that light, your “year” of most significance has just begun in terms of finding your footing. Over the next two weeks, the Older Souls will find themselves experiencing something “natural”, yet not usually pursued because of imprinting or False Personality. While it is “natural”, it is also unacceptable by cultural standards, but it will begin to hit you nonetheless, if you choose to allow it. What we are speaking of here is “neutrality”; a confusing, soft edged, surrender will begin to envelope those who are Late 6th Mature and Older. Depending on your surroundings and environment, those who are 4th to 6th Mature may feel it slightly, but it will be much more likely taken as depression or resignation. This is not a prediction, simply a notation of a strong influx of assimilation in store for most of you. It is much needed. Especially by those further West since GROWTH is a predominate energy this year, while the East is dealing with SUBMISSION (where to DIRECT reciprocal energy). We are speaking mostly of the United States, but will comment on any other countries if this is required later. As the next two weeks unfold, world events and dramatic events in general will begin to take on a surreal and objective feel. A few of you with whom we work closely have already begun to sense this movement. For those moved by this year’s early displays, and for those with “issues” that have been brought to the surface over the past couple of months, these should be settling and the lessons learned, at least in terms of your own lives. We do not see any of you in situations now that will be of any significance or distraction by August. The next two weeks is a coalescence of energy shared by Older souls to begin networking on a different level of communication. This does not mean you will be spared any world events, just that world events will seem more “right”, more a part of the bigger picture. It has been a while since any of you Older Souls have manifested your True Soul Ages, though it is attempted sporadically. What we would suggest then is to perceive these next two weeks through your “own” eyes and not the “world’s”; observe how this is happening for you. There are turns of events that most of consciousness on this planet has chosen for purposes that will Soul Age propel evolution in a direction that might be considered exponential. In that wake there is great intensity that any Essence’s Soul Age could easily become consumed by, thus disconnecting Essence from the experience while the Personality runs rampant and frightened. This will be your choice, one way or the other, but we bring this all to your attention since these next two weeks will allow you the opportunity to truly manifest your own perspectives and you may find they are quite liberating in the midst of certain events. We do not speak here of doomsday events, although we realize our statements seem ominous. We merely speak of events that False Personality may find quite attractive, while you as Essence and True Personality have other agenda to tend to. Here are some things to use as a checklist over the next two weeks: (these are symptoms of your moving more toward your own Soul Age perspective from a place that is merely a manifested perspective, or an imprinted perspective): 1. disconnection 2. distraction 3. dismissive We listed these symptoms in terms that appear to be negative, but this is where you will first turn as False Personality in reaction to your feeling more naturally your True Soul Age. While False Personality sees those symptoms first, Essence sees this: 1. Freedom 2. playfulness 3. evolution ….respectively. In terms of your Centers, the Moving, Emotional, and Intellectual Centers are being refocused, respectively. In that refocusing, you can appear to be rude, uncaring, or rejecting, but this is only the first reactions of the False Personalities of others. What their own True Personality’s may find in truth is responsibility, purpose, and compassion. We cannot stress enough the minimal effect you have on any fragment’s life by accommodating. We would suggest you follow your impulses. QUESTIONS ABOUT THE WEATHER REPORT? [LightsEdge] Floor is open to questions on the weather report. [IK] The emphasis on August … is this connected to the information I’ve been reading about the importance of August 11th/12th? [Michael_Entity] There is an influx of Community Shifts in Parallels at that time, yes. [Otterly notes: a “community” shift is a shift in parallels that happen on a group level, usually locally, in your community or within tribal units like your friends and family] But we are unclear as to the connection to what you have read. The dates, at this point, look to be synchronous. Elaborate, if you would like… [IK] This was in connection with the Mayan calendar, amongst other things. [Michael_Entity] Our own perspective could be considered a facet of validation for this highly pivotal month, August, but we are not using any reference other than our own. However, we do see a consistency. NEXT QUESTION. [Eg] Since i live in Iceland, I would like to know if you have any comment on the energy here in coming weeks ? [Michael_Entity] Iceland has more Growth than Submission, though most of the Older Souls are picking up on the Submission. In general, there looks to be lots of restlessness and this will manifest outwardly, publicly, as in demonstrations of some sort, while the Older Souls observe with interest. We would say that most of the “Weather” we’ve shared tonight would be applicable to you, particularly. NEXT QUESTION. [fg] Michael: “turn of events”…”propel evolution of consciousness in a direction that might be considered exponential”? Comments on ‘direction’? [Michael_Entity] The “turn of events” we said in reference to what is warring between NATO and Kosovo, it is highly combustible at this point. The “direction” is in reference to what has been passed on for several decades now by consciousness as a possibility for exponential growth [which is always traumatically painful to the Personality] and the influx of interest in a larger scale war is back. We do not predict war, but rather that this warring will become pervasive in many country’s lives. It is becoming personal; an Early Mature and Late Young Soul trademark. Does this help answer your question? [fg] yes. [Michael_Entity] NEXT QUESTION: [S9] Is there any different energy news for Canada? [Michael_Entity] First, Canada has more Submission energy being dealt with, rather than the Growth. Over the next two weeks the “weather” we shared is similar to what we shared already, except that several Young Souls are looking to make some impact. A small band of Young Souls have begun a Sequence bringing them to international attention and helping Canada to move to a different level of awareness, itself. In general, the basic “weather” is relevant to you, too. NEXT QUESTION. [lue] what about China, re: war. general soul age? [Michael_Entity] This is one of the most likely candidates for initiating something more “personal” in terms of war since the average soul age involved is Late Young to Early Mature. Conflicts and the voicing of opposition are already being heard. This will be one of the areas of interest for Older Souls to see played out against their own Soul Age perspectives. NEXT QUESTION. [S9] Does this small band of Young Souls live in the same location, that is city or province; are they connected, do they know each other and do they have the same goal or method of bringing this international attention to Canada? Is this in the next two weeks? [Michael_Entity] This is not occurring within the next two weeks as we see it, though we cannot truly predict. What we do see is that they are “connected”, they do live locally within proximity to each other, and they do share the same ideas for carrying out their Tasks. The Sequence is all we have access to and the next point in the Sequence includes a televised minor event that includes one of the Young Souls, a Warrior, making a plea for the search of a missing child. Once this is validated, you may have further questions. NEXT QUESTION. [S9] Are you able to say where in Canada this band of Young Souls live? [Michael_Entity] We do not have a specific city, though it is near Lake Ontario, near Toronto. Toronto will be the focal point. The area of origin is is South West of Toronto. NEXT QUESTION. [IK] I’m interested in the Submission energy and how this can be focused in an individual, not necessarily personal, way. Can you elaborate please? [Michael_Entity] When dealing with the Goal of Submission, whether as energy or as your own Goal, your question to help maintain focus is simply: “Is energy reciprocated here?” We offer this up as a guideline since energy MUST HAVE A CONDUIT. While directing your energy in a specific direction it is vital that all involved, whether this be internal and external parts of you, or between yourself and another, have ENERGY THAT IS RETURNED/reciprocated, IN SOME WAY. We are not referring to “investments” nor are we referring to “manipulations”, instead, in SUBMISSION, a circuit is created and the flow is beneficial and apparent for all involved. When in the negative pole, this circuit is not complete and what we called “investments” and manipulation” results. This is due to the defining factor of exchanged energy; if there is no conduit other than the source, the source can “burn out”, “short circuit”, so to speak, leading to Subservience to self or other. It is the task of those in Submission and those picking up on this energy this year to ask, “Is energy reciprocated here?” or more simply put: “Does this still feel good when I’m done?” We could continue on indefinitely with this topic as there are many levels and facets to explore, but this should provide a guideline for now. NEXT QUESTION [s0] Last week a tourist Duck boat sank here, killing 14 people, will you comment? Was energy cleared or anything like that? [Michael_Entity] We do not necessarily have any comments on this event, but in answer to your question, we do not see this as “a clearing of energy”, though we are unclear as to what you might be defining this as. However, this appears to have been an isolated incident in that all involved seem to have a “block” on any information for us. Information is not available in any meaningful way presently. This usually occurs when those involved are highly conscious of the situation and have immediately implemented assimilation of the event collectively, rather than individual adjustment, then review. We would have more comments later, if you choose to ask. And with that, we will end the session. Goodnight.
  18. February 7, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Education Part One Note from Janet: This transcript refers to the session as 'Part 1', but it does not appear another session on the topic was ever held. [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as it stands for the weeks between February 9th through the 22nd of the same month. You are now well into the energy described as Discrimination, and so far, the energy has seemed to be generally maintained in the Positive Poles for most. The most obvious effect from this energy will be in the heightened awareness of a single or couple of MAJOR choices needing to be made. We said the first couple of weeks looked to be calm and an opportunity for restful interaction with Essence, but the next couple of weeks appear to be focused on making the one or two major choices that will alter the life in some way. It could be said to be a pivotal period of time for many of you on a personal level. The period of time that supported time for restful interaction with Essence apparently was to help in the process of gaining more consciousness in Choice. Although Decisions are made all of the time, Choices are made that alter the life and create Parallels. Decisions lead to Choices. When Decisions are made, Personality can be aligned with Essence or not. When Choice is made, the alignment is seriously examined and this is a strong factor in how Choice is made. This could indicate an upsurge in most people, particular Mature and Old Souls, to implement a regular routine now of communicating to Essence in more personal ways. As this is a Moving Centered Year, as we have said in other contact, this will most likely mean you will be taking into consideration how your immediate environment reflects your relationship to Essence. Symbolism is very high right now, too, in terms of home arrangement, dreams, and “omens.” It is a particularly clear time to consult your favorite oracles, mediums, or channels. It is a particularly clear time to speak to and listen to (communicate with) people around you who might have insight, whether they realize it or not. February 12 appears to be highlighted as significant and pivotal. We realize this is the “Chinese new year,” we believe, but we do not refer to the date because of that. It simply seems to be the most sensitive and unformed day within the period of time in question. This tends to imply significance on a larger level. We will take your questions about the Energy Report now. If there are no questions, we will begin on the Topic. [Glenn] I notice a correlation to the period you discuss with the Mayan calendar. According to that, we are just ending a period of “core days,” where we work on core issues. Can you comment? [M_Entity] We have found through many of our students and channels that there tends to be a correlation between our perspective of energy patterns and the Mayan pattern mapped by their calendar. We can only say that this serves to act as validation for us and our students that the Mayan Calendar and its implications are worth examination. The mapping of celestial tides and patterns so far into the future are valid. The interpretations of these patterns, however, are symbolic. This is what makes the validity so uncanny. Astrology as you know it, is certainly not as clear and it does not claim the same detail. The only “flaw” in the Mayan interpretations is when the calendar “ends.” The commonly accepted date is off. [Kieran] Would the teaching of a simple core speaking language (one exists) make a big difference in breaking down cultural barriers and misunderstandings world wide? [M_Entity] Yes, of course. This does not usually occur as a World Truth until the latter part of a Mature Soul Age. Until that time, the focus is from a stronger Young Soul influence on maintaining “culture,” “heritage,” “history,” and “tradition.” The beginning of a Mature Soul world goes through a long and tedious period of “reaching out” in ways to acknowledge and understand all minority groups’ identification. This allows everyone to feel as if they have been included and are a part of the world. Then the task of weaving these differences into cohesion is taken on, and the first method of choice is choosing a common language. This concept is met with less reaction and pride by that time. [Anne49] With reference to the Mayan Calendar’s end date being “off,” will you tell us what the correct date is? [M_Entity] We will look at the Mayan Calendar’s accurate ending as we move through tonight. We are having a block at this time in that area through this channel. [NOTE from TROY: I have not made time to get Michael’s response to this, yet] If there are no more questions, we will begin with the Topic. Education, Part One The topic of Education is a broad one. We will be sharing some basic considerations we believe would help fragments begin a life with optimum potential and development of personal tools. “Education” begins within 48 hours of Physical Birth. The Body is a complete sensory unit and focal point “into” the Physical Plane for Essence at that time. We say the Body is “complete” as a sensory unit at that time because, relative to later influences, certain senses may or may not be heightened or diminished over time. For the first 7 years of a life, in general, the Essence gradually “moves in.” Essence does not live through the Body before that period of time, though there are exceptions. During the first 7 years, past life Personalities of relevance, as well as Essence, “care” for the Body and direct it and those fragments of importance around it for as many opportunities for imprinting as possible. When we say the “Essence and past Personalities direct those of importance,” we do not imply this is done through deceit or imposition. It is done through Agreement formation and fulfillment in most cases, or Karma. However the Body is cared for and guided, between the ages of 2 and 3 the Centering has become habit. This then would become one of its Overleaves. This is the first Overleaf of importance in determining the beginnings of Education on a higher level than primal. Children, then, can easily be said to be from three basic groups: Moving Centered, Intellectually Centered, and Emotionally Centered. There are, of course, those who are Instinctive Centered, and we will address these rare fragments another time. If intentional Education is addressed to fragments before the age of 7, it is helpful to acknowledge their primary Centering during that time as the priority. Moving Centered children, indicated many times by Physical symptoms in the skin (barring basic “diaper rash”) and tendencies to hit, bounce, stand, and/or pull more strongly, would gain more from focus on toys that encourage the EARS or HEARING. Intellectually Centered children, indicated many times by far more vocalizations, screaming, and “tantrums,” would do well with an emphasis on toys that require physical contact, touching. Emotionally Centered children, indicated many times by more quiet, smiling, and “good” babies, would do well with an emphasis on toys which require balance, combining, and color. (Emotionally Centered children see color far earlier than other children.) Before we continue, we will pause for questions about educating children up the age of 7. Are there any questions? [ClaireN] How does the environment affect learning? [M_Entity] If you consider the basic route of education for the child under 7 years of age, then it could be said that any emphasis on the more distracting influences could diminish learning. It could also be said that an OVER emphasis can be damaging. For instance if an Emotionally Centered child has a focus on Hearing, they may lose the important development from the more complementary route of Color, Balance, and Combining. Then again, if they are overexposed to harsh colors and chaos, they may tend to inhibit all interest in anything to complement their Centering. If an Intellectually Centered child has more of a focus on Hearing and Music, for another example, they may lose the important shaping from the more complementary need for Touch and Physical Interaction; though if they are carelessly touched, or indifferently cared for, they can be greatly damaged. As you can see, most caretakers intuitively provide ALL of the possible complementary toys and methods for education. But we can say that if an emphasis of a healthier development is a consideration, the more specific suggestions are important. Did this answer your question? [ClaireN] Yes, thank you. [M_Entity] You may have noticed that what we have suggested as educational focus is not primary to the Centering that is developing. Instead, it is complementary in that the emphasis will create a contrast to create a “rounding out” of the Center, creating less of an opportunity for the Center to live in a TRAP or PART, later. By the Age of 7, the Part is a habit. The greater the comprehension and strength of the Center by that time, the less it depends on a Part, but instead, uses ALL Parts appropriately. From the Age of 7, the focus of Education would best be geared toward defining the “Primary Essence Influence.” We say “Primary Essence Influence” because Essence may or may not be supported by the Overleaves as they rest on a predominate Axis. When it comes to a lifetime, especially before the 4th Internal Monad, the Personality, as the OVERLEAVES define it, is the most important concern, not necessarily the Role of Essence. Emphasizing discovering the Personality and its focus is key in allowing Essence to manifest as clearly and consistently as possible later in life. With that being said, it must be considered that past the age of 7, Education must address 3 very vital areas of the Personality: The Goal, the Mode, and the Attitude. Currently, those with an emphasis on Overleaves resting on the Inspiration, Expressive Axes are lost to the emphasis on the Moving and Assimilative Axes. Creative, Inspiring activities and outlets are not available in any meaningful way until after what is called High School, in most cases. Because the system is focused on only supporting only the Moving or Assimilative Axes, even if programs are in place for Expression and Inspiration, they are ridiculed, belittled, and under-funded, separating that group of Personalities in potentially detrimental ways. We suggest an overhaul of this basic inconsiderate system of education by not only creating methods of teaching that accommodate each Axis, but also accommodate each area of important development in terms of the Goal, Mode, and Attitude. This would mean teaching children from the primary axis of Inspiration through methods that encourage Emotional associations, feelings, and intuition. Teaching children from the primary axis of Action to be taught through sports, physical interaction, and tactile methods. Teaching Expressive Axis children through stories, expression, acting, communication, art, performance and stage. This is highly simplistic, but we realize the time frame we have through this channel is limited. Using the appropriate methods based on Axis, the school “day” would then be emphasized in 3 segments, each focusing on either the Goal, Mode, or Attitude. This basically means developing and encouraging the basic tendencies and interests of the child as he or she has shown interest (the goal), teaching the very basics of intimacy, sexuality, relationships, and exposure to varying cultures (the Mode). Teaching the 7 basic philosophies on the planet (the attitude). We cannot emphasize enough the importance of teaching the 7 basic philosophies before or during the teen years. If there is one, single aspect of education that condemns a society to unhealthy development and division, it is in the lack of understanding your own personal perceptions/philosophy and those of others. We will add here that we have not forgotten the Assimilative Axis. This Axis, of all of them, is the most adaptable and would gravitate itself toward the Axis most meaningful at varying points of development. The irony is in the “backward” approach to using, instead, the whole of Assimilation as the means to teach, rather than allowing those who are naturally Assimilative to adapt. We will pause here for questions, noting that this topic is far from concluded here, though the time is running out. If there are no more questions, we will conclude here. [JNelson] How do the Overleaves figure into how to teach a specific subject matter that a culture has already decided to teach? For instance, how would you teach Inspiration or Emotionally inclined fragments about math? [M_Entity] The premise of a subject would not change. In the case of Math, of course the focus must be on objects and their relation to each other. For each Axis, it is not necessarily that the means to teach would vary so wildly, but that the emphasis in the environment would change. For instance, the Inspirational children would learn Math based in an environment that is less structured, more intuitive, and made room for feelings. The Expressive children would learn through socializing, acting out the theories in story or song, and playing. A stereotypical classroom for the Inspirational children would be calmer, working with 3 dimensional representations, and using discussion, guessing, and emotional language. A Stereotypical classroom for the Expressive children would be boisterous, loud, using humor, food, and smells and lots and lots of personal associations to learn. The difference we propose is that a room with structure, pen and paper, and facing forward, are only specifically beneficial to Assimilation, and secondarily to Action. Beanbags chairs, toys, and stage, regardless of the subject, would keep a Sage’s or Artisan’s attention in any subject all the way through High School. Although we are not complete on this subject, we will conclude here. We will continue this subject at the request of our students, if the interest is there. Good Night.
  19. ENERGY REPORT MAY 2017 2017 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY brings a passionate dive into Passion as those who are inclined toward the Positive Pole will begin to focus on how relationships and goals and ideals are paths toward learning more about the self and giving more authentic form to the self, while those inclined toward the Negative Pole will cling more desperately to the “things” they feel are extensions of themselves and defend them with even greater blind passion. Most of our students will find themselves leaning toward the Positive Pole, while facing the disconcerting Negative Pole showing up more “in the world” around them. In other words, the younger souls will likely lean toward the Negative Pole and the late Mature to Old will likely lean toward the Positive Pole. It is not uncommon among populations to see the younger collectively dive into Negative Poles as the older collectively embrace the Positive Poles of collective Overleaves. There is nothing one can do to change this for the younger souls (or anyone) who has yet to know the benefit of the Positive Pole beyond the more immediate use of an Overleaf. The only option for helping those in the Negative Pole is to be the living example of the benefit of any Positive Pole. For those in the Positive Pole of Passion, you simply continue to navigate your world with the embrace of the truth that your world is a reflection of you, not a rejection of you; that your world, relationships, and things are inclusions of you, but are not conclusions of you. When we speak of “your world,” we will clarify here that there are 3 concentric radii around every individual that represents their world: 1 - IMMEDIATE - anyone, anything, or any experience that has regular awareness and engagement with on a daily basis in any way is your IMMEDIATE WORLD. This world, including your own body, represents exactly where and how you are in relation to yourself and others and life. Your deepest fears and your greatest loves about yourself are reflected here. Think of this world as your “home” and everyone who “lives” in it. 2 - INTERMEDIATE - anyone, anything, or any experience that draws inconsistent but repetitive engagement and awareness from you over time, but is not a part of your Immediate World is your INTERMEDIATE WORLD. This is where invitations to new experiences, reflections, and relationships show up. They are not direct reflections of you, but of your potential directions, relationships, healing, challenges, etc. Think of this world as your neighborhood and the life experienced when you leave your home. 3 - EXTENDED - anyone, anything, or any experience that is not a part of your Immediate or Intermediate Worlds and, regardless of distance or time, draws your awareness and engagement in a way that greatly impacts your Immediate and Intermediate World. This is where “world events” and “catastrophes” and “politics” and “climate” etc live. This World represents your position within humanity, and the reflections here are about populations, not individuals. All three worlds are in effect at all times, but it can be easy to assume they are one world to you and that everything that exists within each is something that reflects or rejects you. The only world that truly reflects YOU is your Immediate World, so when you look at how Passion is showing up for you, this Immediate World is where you will see most of what is Actualizing you, or giving form to your improvements and evolution and ideals. Your Intermediate World reflects what you ponder, wonder about, test, explore, and while this is still a reflection of you, it is more about your potential direction than about your exact location. Your Extended World reflects a much wider spectrum that includes the more loving and more fearful of humanity, city, town, neighborhood, community, etc. What affects you from that world is an indication of what you are being drawn to help with for your species, for your Sentience. Your disgust, anger, pain, fear, awe, wonder, elation, bliss that generates as a result of Extended World events tells you where your part in the story of humanity is. It is a long story and so are the processes necessary to heal, help, celebrate, and secure anything to which you find yourself drawn. As you navigate your Passions over the next couple of months, keep in mind the more Immediate World that is yours to shape and heal and celebrate, while keeping in mind that the other Worlds are not so quickly or immediately accessible for shaping and healing and celebrating. It is only a matter of calibration of energy and awareness to help you deal more effectively with the reflections, invitations, and impact from your worlds so that you can Actualize yourself in even more meaningful and authentic and effective ways. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): May 10th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- MORE PASSION - Another wave of intensity among those tapping into Passion, both in the Positive and Negative Poles. Most of our students may find themselves moved to take on directions, relationships, and experiences that needed just one final boost of enthusiasm and excitement. Some students may find this an unsettling and jarring wave of energy that is asking too much of them, drawing them into reflections of themselves that they would rather ignore. May 19th - 21st -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - Potentially dramatic shift toward more meaningful and acceptable and inclusive negotiations among world leaders, or toward more turmoil, shock, and extremism. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER May: YOUR WORLD IS YOURS - When you look at your world around you that you live day in and day out, you are everything to this world. Your perceptions, interpretations, choices, actions, inactions, thoughts, feelings, etc. all play a part in what world you experience and create. You cannot control everything, but you can control you. You cannot always control what happens to you, but you can control what you do with what happens to you. Practice owning your position as creator and navigator of your Immediate World. OUR WORLD IS OURS - The Extended World is shared by everyone. There is no division in its reflection of humanity. It reflects the best and the worst. You will see all of it. Practice seeing the whole spectrum of humanity, not just the worst and not just the best. All of it is there. A fraction of humanity is “the worst” and most of humanity is “the best” or at least acceptable. It is easy to fall into the extremes of one end of the spectrum over the other, but all of it exists. Actively expose yourself to the whole spectrum in some way. You will not die, you will not blow your mind, you will not break your heart and you will not lose your footing on the important challenges when you know the truth of the spectrum that is your Extended World. You do not have to know EVERYTHING that is happening in your world, but you must practice seeing a fuller spectrum so that you can have the energy for all of your Worlds.
  20. ENERGY REPORT March 2017 2017 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) MARCH brings with it a recess with an emphasis on pleasure for those who have been in constant focus on a Cause or it brings a burst of vitality and focus for those who have been sorting through and adapting to the idea of a Cause. For those who may move into a pleasure recess, this does not mean the Cause goes away, but that you find yourself in a position to make room for greater pleasures, revitalization, rest, personal time, intimacy, or anything that may have been missing for the past 6 months or so. Many of our students who have been in deep focus on a Cause, or Causes, or for those who simply live this as a baseline for the life, March may feel like a breath of fresh air and an injection of joy, or at the very least a wave of so-called guilty pleasures. For these students moving into a recess of pleasure, the past several months have likely been feeling as if no matter how alive and awake you feel, “something” is missing. In addition to the collective grief that may have been a part of this feeling, the one thing that has been missing is PLEASURE. Even when there have been attempts at pleasure, the sensation and depth are stripped out if it was felt to contradict the more pressing issues of the Cause. For those students it can be suggested to let March be your oasis, a permission for pleasure and rejuvenation because if you do not, you may “burn out.” For those students who are new to the focus on a Cause or still sorting out the how, why, and way of a Cause, March may begin to feel as if you have your focus, your passion, your point. As March unfolds, let yourself listen to what matters to you and let yourself express why and how and when it matters. It could be said that March is your exciting launch of your campaign. This may show up in literal ways such as having found groups and paths to support your Cause, or in symbolic ways so that you simply embrace with great respect that which matters to you and you decide it matters enough to move it into a priority of care. March will bring with it an overlapping from the emphasis on Passion beginning in April and the current focus on Submission. When Passion meets Submission, it can lead to blind zeal and fury, or to enlightening transformation and compassion, especially in a Priest year. Consider March to be a respite in any case before the potential chaos or beauty of April begins. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): March 9th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- PLEASURE AND PEACE - As described in the above report, this is the date for when the shift may come into greater focus on pleasure for those students with a Cause, and a focus on confident peace for those new to focus on a Cause. The difference between Pleasure and Peace can be minimal, but we use these different terms because they are relevant to each context. March 30th -- (mini) NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - This looks to be a branching off of a minimal range of parallels among our students where there are active refusals of pleasure or peace. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER March: THE PLEASURE IS YOURS - When you enjoy something, ENJOY it. There is no need for useless guilt, no need for explanation or justification. Pleasure is yours. Pleasure cannot be standardized so it is meaningless to compare your pleasures to that of others. Let yourself enjoy your pleasures when you have those moments of pleasure. That is part of the entire point of having pleasure centers across all bodies throughout all planes of existence. Pleasure IS existence. Keep in mind that True Pleasure never harms you or anyone else. There is a difference between Pleasure and Sensation. When you satisfy only Sensation, it can come at a cost and cause pain for yourself or others. Pleasure often includes Sensation, but it never harms and any cost, literally and figuratively, is within one’s means. PEACE IS A PRACTICE - We have spoken before about the messy work of Peace, and that it is not always pretty, but it also takes practice. For those who are beginning to feel a focus and energy for a Cause, the peace that may come from that alignment will require care, effort, and energy. In other words, knowing where you stand, and being confident with where you stand, does not remove the work that comes with moving forward. Peace is not a place where you stand. It is a practice you carry with you.
  21. ENERGY REPORT December 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) DECEMBER arrives with a mix of numbness and inspiration moving through most of our students. This mix may come as intriguing to some and confusing to others. It is not easy to simultaneously remain emotionally open while emotionally wounded. The pattern we see among our students is an effort to “hold it together” and a return to focus on amplifying the Server energy of Inspiration, along with the use of this year’s full set of Overleaves in as Positive a Pole as possible. Over December, many of our students may begin to feel the impulse to honor their darker feelings, but to nurture every bit of Inspiration, to put into Action (Moving Center) that Inspiration, to carefully (Caution) refine their focus and choice and actions (Discrimination) and look in the opposite direction, the other side from where events are demanding you look (Cynic). This means that many of our students have shifted from an emphasis on shock, defeat, disempowerment, dread, and disorientation and are making the effort to focus on where one can be helpful, on how one can be helpful, on how one can increase nurturing and kindness in the immediate world around and within, if not in the world-at-large, and doing the work of turning the fuel of anger, depression, and closing down, into a fuel for motivation, perspective, and consciousness. It is not easy, but for many of our students it may feel much more “like themselves,” more like home, if you will, to be in a state of greater inclusion than to be contracted in wounding. So as December unfolds, even among any new surprises and struggles, we would not be surprised to see our students offering up to themselves and to each other a way to create networks of support, inspiration, action, and meaning that will help launch 2017 in the best light possible. Those who cannot or will not address the continuing “black hole” of Self-Destruction will likely begin to feel the implosive weight of this over December and reach a kind of false point of no return, an event horizon, if you will. Though there is always a point of return, and though the concept of an event horizon is inaccurate, it is still fair to describe the exponential crumbling that comes under the weight of Self-Destruction. This may mean some fairly radical events or compulsive behaviors rising across December. At this point, we cannot see if these patterns will result in a rather “quiet” December, or a dip into chaos, but it is likely a mix of both as the year comes to a close. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): December 7th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- HUMANITARIANISM - Many of our students and students of other teachings may experience a shift in clarity around this date as they lock onto an idea, direction, cause, or event that asks of them to participate for the sake of humanity, for the sake of “good,” for the sake of making a beneficial difference. Whether action is taken or just the clear sense of alignment that will lead to action, this shift is one that may have long-term consequences and meaning that extends through 2017. December 13th - 21st -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - A slow and lengthy merging of parallels that are a coming together of all realities on the verge of “global revolution.” HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER December: SINK OR SWIM - December is as simple as the phrase of “sink or swim.” As you move through December, it can be helpful to simply think in these terms when making decisions and choices. If you prefer to “swim,” it may be exhausting, but you are stronger than you may think, and inspiration can go a long way as a life jacket. This phrasing is not to describe a black and white scenario, or to describe anything dire and ominous, but it is shared as a quick reference to simplify and clarify your process of choice and action over December. “Sinking” here only means that the effort to continue forward ceases and the choice for false comfort, insulation, and avoidance is made. BONUS PREVIEW: 2017 OVERLEAVES (as they appear now; subject to change) ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec)
  22. ENERGY REPORT February 2017 2017 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Emotional (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) February brings a doubling down, so to speak, on the Goal of Submission. The Positive Pole of Devotion among those who commit to a cause is still going strong fueled by Compassion of the Priest energy, while the Negative Pole of unquestioning and obedience through Subservience is continuing to further entrench itself into the year, driven by those who have locked into the Zeal of the Priest energy. One of the primary concerns for our students and those who are contributing to the collective Devotion and Compassion momentum is the concept of Elegance. The year was launched with a fury and flurry of energy that cannot be sustained. Those pushing the patterns of Subservience and Zeal are likely to discover this sooner than later, but even those with the passion fueling Devotion and Compassion soon discover the “burn out.” Elegance helps relieve this concern. Elegance is a process of harnessing fury and stretching this out into calmness. Elegance is ingeniousness, simplicity, and pleasure. In other words, the momentum of Devotion and Compassion must pace itself and begin measures that funnel energy into simplicity, pleasures, and ingenious solutions that make the absolute most of the energy at hand so that energy can replenish to sustain momentum. Many of our students may have felt the fury and flurry in January, but now feel the stutter and stall. This is one of the reasons many efforts to sustain a Cause to full success can fail. The greater the obstacles related to the Cause, the greater the necessity for Elegance. What we can suggest then for our students who are participating in the energy of this year is to look for ways to contribute that fulfill one or both of these criteria: Simplicity - taking part in a march, a protest, donating money, sharing information, etc. are examples of simplicity. Simplicity in this case means being able to show up without losing yourself. If you are participating in larger scale organization tactics then ensure that delegation is clear and concise so that the effort is spread among many. The point of Simplicity is only that your efforts allow for rest. This is vital. Pleasure - this may seem counter to the state of mind and heart one may have when involved in a Cause, but that is exactly what it is: a state of mind and heart. If you approach a Cause with despair and defeat, your energy is cut by half at the very least. If you approach a Cause with a sense of passion for the aim, a confidence in the effectiveness, a trust in your power and presence, this is pleasure. More importantly, pay attention to the effectiveness of the efforts. Every little pillar of support and ramp of progress is worth acknowledging and celebrating. Let yourself and others know that actions are fulfilling the Cause. In short, give and receive the credit freely and openly. This helps keep your spirits up and generates energy to sustain Devotion and Compassion. The above may seem overly simplistic and optimistic, but that is because they are. That is the point. One cannot fulfill a Cause by moving forward in dread and despair. This is not to say that dread and despair can be avoided, but that those are not the fuel for a Cause. Feelings of dread and despair are yours to use as you wish, but allow them to stay unhooked from your Cause. Cry, feel defeated, feel anxious and worried and even hateful, but let that be “on your own time,” so to speak. A Cause that is fueled by Devotion and Compassion tends not to be limited in benefit to a single person, but for the sake of many. Allow your Cause to be fueled by your passion, simply and confidently, while giving yourself the personal space to grieve and recover. February may be exhausting and daunting at times, but if you can return to Elegance through Simplicity and Pleasure, you may find a new way to use the fuel of your life, and/or access new depths of fuel. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): February 6th - 8th -- ENERGY SHIFT -- POTENTIAL SHOCK - Our dates of interest are never predictions, only probabilities, so we do not know if this shift will come to form. However, we see a pattern leading to some sort of disruptive shock, surprise, and a bit of chaos over these dates. If this happens on a global scale, it will be known, but if this is more subtle on an individual scale it may show up more obviously at a later date. We will look at this again later in the month with you. February 26th - March 2nd -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - This looks to be one of the first large-scale Divergent Nexus of the year, and from what we can tell it may bring with it the first signs of what may be experienced as Relief. This Divergence looks to be a kind of “exit ramp” for those more interested in extreme versions of this current reality, and removing that element from “here” can help improve morale for many of our students. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER February: K.I.S.S. - Keep It Super Simple - With all of your angst, anger, fear, terror, frustration, anxiety, dread, and all of your passion, love, intent, consciousness, kindness, compassion, and devotion, you have a lot of energy churning and this can distort your access to the Higher Emotional Center energy of this year that allows you synthesize all of the input from life into some Intuitive sense, and/or sustain a sense of Love with clear heart and vision for your Cause. Remembering to K.I.S.S. can help you to remember that you need affection, rest, and some amount of joy to take back to your Cause, and that it is okay to leave your messier frustrations and fears for your downtime to process. NOTE: when we speak of your Cause in this year’s reports, we know that not all students will have a declarative Cause for which they stand. In cases where there is no obvious external Cause, we speak in terms of your personal Cause that may be your healing, your recovery, your relationship, your creative projects. A Cause is anything that is important to you that you know brings benefit, value, and pleasure to others. So even if your Cause is quiet, personal, and private, it is likely one that others would benefit from because of you.
  23. ENERGY REPORT September 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) SEPTEMBER brings the energy of Cynicism into full focus among most fragments who are incarnated at this time. Considering this is a year of collective Turning Points for most, it is not surprising that this is one of the few times in history when the Attitude for the year is shared across nearly the entire population of the planet. We have discussed the nature of the Cynic Attitude in previous July and August reports, and we would suggest a review of those details to help with September and the rest of your year to come. 50% of the population is looking fairly consistently through the Positive Pole of Cynic at this time, while 40% are fairly consistently adhering to the Negative Pole, and 10% are moving rapidly between the two Poles. This may seem to indicate that the Positive Pole may have a more obvious impact on the collective trajectory, and this would be true in the long-term, but in the short-term it may not be obvious. This is because the Positive Pole is inclusive and makes room for the Negative Pole, so while the dominant percentage is in the Positive Pole, it means that more room is being made for the noise of the Negative Pole. This dynamic of inclusion is important because the Positive Pole does not fight with itself. It seeks to understand, transform, heal, and love. For those who are unfamiliar with the power of this position, it may seem to be weak or overpowered, but it always prevails. Always. This may not seem true in smaller cycles and local focus, but in grander cycles and with broader focus the patterns are clear. However, because lives are experience in smaller cycles and in local focus, it is fair to say that 2016 is now rooted in the Negative Pole struggles that Denigration brings to the population. This means that Cynicism is now virtually locked in the Negative Pole for most to have to deal with and this means that an early and deep hooking into the Chief Feature of the year is highly likely to begin in September and then run out the remainder of 2016. With Denigration there is a constant degrading, devaluing, disparaging, disrespecting, defaming, and destructive perspective that informs the behaviors and choices of the individual in Denigration. Denigration is a perspective and stance of unnecessary destruction. The Positive Pole, Contradiction, is a constructive questioning and curiosity and an invitation to broaden or change perspectives beyond the obvious, but the Negative Pole is not interested in learning, only to oppose. This kind of immersion in destructive opposition invites and welcomes Self-destruction. Self-destruction is the fear of worthlessness, and a feeling that one has no worth or value unless dead or dying for the sake of someone or something else. Greed is the partner to Self-destruction. Greed is the fear of scarcity, and a fear that you will not get all that is owed to you by life and that your value and worth are not reflected in what you have, get, or take. If Greed is the fear of not getting enough, then Self-destruction is the fear of getting too much. An important factor to consider now is that Chief Features are not always private and personal. Chief Features show up in three ways: privately, provoked, and projected. Chief Features that show up privately usually need no prompting and exist as a personal struggle with the self. Chief Features that show up as provoked tend to show up in relation to other people who somehow tend to provoke you or be provoked into the dynamic of that Chief Feature. Chief Features that show up as projected are when you see others as exemplifying that Chief Feature and you take on the fight and fear of them as representatives. 2016’s Chief Feature of Self-destruction is primarily Projected, with some Provocation. About 35% of the 40% who are in Denigration are hooked deeply into Self-destruction, but are projecting this upon those whom they oppose and see them as necessary to destroy because they are “getting too much” and not worthy of life. 5% of the 40% are being Provoked or actively Provoking Self-destruction and while they are a smaller percentage, they are likely to be the most obvious because these are the fragments who will follow through to ensure that someone or something is destroyed. September may seem fairly similar to August, but may come with a new layer of anxiety and exhaustion. We encourage all of our students to do their best to hold and nurture their own perspectives and the collective perspective in the Positive Poles so that you do not lose sight of the larger patterns at work that *always* lead to greater inclusion, peace, love, and joy. Your planet hosts more love and peace than it has in a long time, and these growing pains are natural to any transition between Soul Ages and Paradigms. This is a Server year, and in the same way that dressing an open wound will come with pain for the necessity of healing, so do the open wounds of humanity come with pain in the effort to move toward healing. The process of healing requires bringing to the surface any infection for clearing, and it is not inaccurate to say that the infection and sickness of humanity is directly in focus now, but only for the sake of dressing and healing. It is ugly and messy, but important. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): September 9th - 11th -- ENERGY SHIFT - POWER VS POSSIBILITY - This energy shift is more likely to show up as a power struggle between sustaining optimism and possibility vs being torn between the weight of exhausting battle between destruction and construction. We suggest to our students to step back from the battle for a moment to remind yourself of beauty, possibility, and pleasures. The battle will still be there, but you may need this important break. September 26th -- NEXUS - BREAKTHROUGH - For those who are experiencing their Turning Point for this year and moving closer to breakthrough or breakdown, this Nexus is an emphasis on Breakthrough. For many of our students this may mark the period of time when you finally move into Breakthrough and leave the options of Breakdown behind. This may be subtle or obvious in effect, but a long-term effect no matter how it shows up. If you are not shifting into a Breakthrough, you may simply feel a tremendous release from gravity, a shift toward floating and freeing from the patterns of burden and demand and a chance to recreate yourself or refresh your perspective or relieve yourself of fears just for a while so that you can catch your breath and take on the rest of the year with vitality, creativity, and love. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER September: EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE IS WORTH IT - When you feel exhausted by the demands and distractions of a world in transition and growth, whether your personal world or the world at large, it is important to remember that it is worth it. This is a Truth. What you feel and see matter, but it is important to remember that they are in your control, not at the mercy of events and experiences. Remember to see the value, the worth, and the truth of growth, learning, and even pain. AM I BEING CONSTRUCTIVE? - When you find yourself in opposition or holding positions of questioning and challenging of assumptions, it is helpful to remember to ask yourself if your actions, thoughts, and feelings are constructive or only destructive. It may sometimes seem that destruction is the obvious solution, but in most cases of destruction of opposition there is always retaliation, return, and rebound. You do not fight Chief Feature, you heal it. You do not fight infections, you heal them. You do not fight your pain, you heal it. You may have to fight sometimes, and it is necessary at times, but the ultimate goal is the healing and this can only be done with the philosophy of constructive Contradiction.
  24. ENERGY REPORT August 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) AUGUST moves the energy directly into the core of the Cynic Attitude where the possibility for a shift into the Positive Pole is higher, though we must note that this possibility is slight. The Negative Pole has too high of an investment from too many and this can be daunting to work through, but this does not mean it is impossible nor does it mean you cannot turn this around on a personal level. We will state again that the Cynic Attitude in itself is not inherently unpleasant, but for those not familiar with it or are uncomfortable with contradiction, even the best of Cynic energy can feel inconvenient at best, but when Cynic is moving through the Negative Pole, Denigration, it can feel like an invisible, heavy weight that strips the joy and life from everything and feels exhausting. We also repeat: Cynic energy is vital to the expansion and evolution of active intelligence and discernment when it is in the Positive Pole of Contradiction because pursuit of integrity and truth through questioning, challenging, and countering presumptions is healthy, but when Cynic energy moves through the Negative Pole it is the active use of intelligence to undermine or destroy integrity and truth. Denigration is countering, questioning, and challenging for the sake of defending one’s conclusive perspective, not for expanding or evolving in one’s expanding perspective. Denigration seeks to undermine, devalue, belittle, and destroy that which is questioned, rather than listen to answers or see the truth. Currently, individual perspectives are deep in Denigration or deeply affected by those in Denigration. The undermining of integrity and truth as a means for destroying that which is the target of questioning is in full momentum of effect. The only response to this can be the Positive Pole that is Contradiction. If our students feel the weight of Denigration affecting them, or if they find themselves being swept up in participating in the Denigration, it can be helpful to return to Contradiction. This means surprising yourself with a questioning of your intent, a questioning of your own perspective. If you feel generally defeated, defensive, frustrated, angry, and exhausted, surprise yourself. Think differently. Try a different angle. Try changing your focus. Try expanding your focus. This is not to ignore that which is affecting you, but to help you find solutions and alternatives to what is affecting you. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): August 2nd -- ENERGY SHIFT - TENTATIVE RELIEF - This shift seems to bring with it a sense of possibility and perspective, but not a lot of confidence in that relief. Some may feel this is a good time to “snap out of it” and try a shift in perspective, but it may seem too easy to slip back into the weight of effect from Denigration. August 13th -- ENERGY SHIFT - KARMIC CLARITY - Most of 2016 has been a difficult and painful look at collective Karma and what remains to be balanced, corrected, and healed. While deep in this exploration, it can feel quite overwhelming, but this Energy Shift helps to bring many fragments back out and up and to the edges of the chaos for a clearer sense of what needs to be done. August 27th -- ENERGY SHIFT - CONSCIOUS CREATION - This energy shift appears to be a return to a sense of responsibility for how one creates the next steps in the life. Many of our students may find that they can finally unhook from the collective patterns that have felt quite heavy and personal, and return to a sense of navigation that is inspired by personal choice, response, and Manifesting of Essence. A sense of pivotal and conscious choice in PERSPECTIVE and ATTITUDE for how to move forward is here. [no nexus in August] HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER August: SURPRISE YOURSELF - When you feel overwhelmed by the sense of destruction to truth and integrity in the world, surprise yourself. See if you can find a different perspective. See if you can find the threads of positive possibilities. See if you can do something else to help free your energy, heart, and head for a while so you can return to your concerns more energized, clear, and enthusiastically. FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE MAKES MORE FIRE - If you see the world as being chaotic, confusing, overwhelming, depressing, struggling, etc. it does not help if you bring that same energy into the mix. It is okay to experience these emotions, but it is not helpful if you stop there. Bring joy, bring perspective, bring surprise, bring levity, bring play, bring something different. Even if only for a moment. Bring something different.
  25. ENERGY REPORT July 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY brings the move of emphasis directly into the Cynic Attitude. The Cynic Attitude in itself is not inherently unpleasant, but for those not familiar with it or are uncomfortable with contradiction, even the best of Cynic energy can feel inconvenient at best, but when Cynic is moving through the Negative Pole, Denigration, it can be an invisible, heavy weight that seems to strip the joy and life from everything and is exhausting. July begins with Cynic in the Negative Pole. This appears to be showing up as our students feeling a concerted effort to “stay positive,” to keep their vision intact, their ideals upheld, their sense of progress and joy sustained. It is likely not easy, and even if this evasion of this Negative Pole energy is successful, it is likely quite exhausting. Cynic energy is vital to the expansion and evolution of active intelligence and discernment when it is in the Positive Pole of Contradiction because pursuit of integrity and truth through questioning, challenging, and countering presumptions is healthy, but when Cynic energy moves through the Negative Pole it is the active use of intelligence to undermine or destroy integrity and truth. Denigration is countering and questioning and challenging for the sake of defending one’s perspective, not for expanding or evolving in one’s perspective. Denigration seeks to undermine, devalue, belittle, and destroy that which is questioned, rather than listen to answers or see the truth. What we are finding in patterns across July are many with even the best of intentions simply falling into Denigration, pursuing the takedown and destruction of that which is questionable rather than pursuing the understanding of that which is questionable. Cynic looks for ways to transform and transmute the questionable. When this is through Contradiction there is an understanding of oppositions so that resolution and change can come in beneficial ways. When transformation and transmutation comes through Denigration, it is without understanding of oppositions, and simply aims for the removal or destruction of the opposition. With the Chief Feature of Self-destruction in force this year, and so much emphasis on the Negative Poles, the force of Self-Destruction is rising among many, even among our students. Those who may be prone to aligning with Denigration this year appear to be willing to “go down with the ship”, see themselves as making an honorable Sacrifice, or commit Suicide (figuratively and literally) as a means to take down that which is deemed opposing forces. From what we can see, this may turn out to be a year of unprecedented acts of Suicide, not only in the obvious figurative and literal ways, but in cascading impact. As July progresses, we do not see much levity in terms of how Cynicism will be used, so we suggest that our students do all they can to generate that levity and nurture it as a means to remain a part of the process of questioning and encouraging challenges to presumptions, but help yourselves and others to be less-inclined toward the gravity of Denigration. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): July 03 - 07 -- ENERGY SHIFT - ENERGY REDUCTION - Another plummet in energy may be in effect for many of our students, starting off July as foggy and even seemingly depressing. This drain comes as a result of “holding it together,” “focusing on the positive,” “trying to see the bright side,” etc. It is not that those efforts are fruitless, but that as part of the successful and valid process of holding it together, focusing on the positive, and trying to see the bright side there is a necessity to exhale, to pause, to catch one’s breath before breathing deeply again. This reduction in energy can be used for slowing down, for changing pace, for considering what one has learned. July 19 -- ENERGY SHIFT - ENERGY SURGE - An Energy Surge comes around the 19th to mark a potential shift away from fogginess and heavy thoughts and feelings that may have been carried over the month. A surge of energy toward convictions and common ground causes, either on a larger scale or on a personal scale. July 29th -- NEXUS - Divergence - This nexus appears to be focused on branching off those parts of those who are interested in an escalation of conflict toward greater war. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: STEER THE SHIP, DO NOT SINK IT - When faced with the difficult terrain of disappointment and disillusionment and/or despair, it is always of greater health and benefit to navigate this terrain rather than to avoid it or self-destruct. THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS (but you will not) - This phrase is a universal truth. The best and the worst of any experience, life, relationship, etc. will change, evolve, grow, and sometimes this may be excruciatingly or blissfully slow, but all of it will pass. But you will not. We point this out because it is important to know so you can make more of a difference during the difficult, and cherish with gratitude the moments of joy. It is important to participate because no matter how much changes, how much of life comes and goes, and how much it hurts or pleases you, YOU are at the center of it all, and what you do, how you participate, how you navigate, what you choose, what you do matters.
