  1. ENERGY REPORT JULY 2010 July marks the shift of emphasis from the MODE of the year to the ATTITUDE for the year. We remind you that the energy represented by the GOAL and MODE does not dissipate, but that it is built upon. In this case, the Attitude of Spiritualist is building upon the Goal of Dominance, and the Mode of Power, and of course, the Role of Sage for this year. July through September tends to be a "season" that explores the collective philosophies and general filter of perception that most are using in terms of looking at, and interpreting, the world and world events. Though everyone will have their own filter of interpretation, personal philosophies, Attitudes, etc, there is still a general perception that is generated from the masses, often reflected in world events, news, politics, and other shared phenomena. The Attitude is the "hub" of every Personality. The entire Personality is affected by the Attitude. The Attitude is central to the Personality in the same way that a hub is central to a wheel; the Personality is only ever as strong and capable of movement as the strength of that hub. The Attitude is like the hub in that if it is weak, bent, or heavy, it can throw off the movement of the wheel in ways that range from complete lack of navigation, to a crippling roll. It could be said, then, that these months of July through September are kind of opportunity for tuning up the personal Attitude by examining the collective Attitude. For 2010, we see the collective Attitude best described as SPIRITUALIST. Each of the Attitudes describes one of 7 basic philosophies that have come to be described and studied through history. Spiritualism could be described as the philosophy of the immaterial, intangible, and non-physical as potential forces to consider. This philosophy can range from the more obvious spirituality that is often contained in religion, and personal values that include the concept of a soul with realms beyond the physical, to the intangibilities, hypotheses, and theories of science, along with thought, emotion, and anticipated long-term consequences. The Spiritualist philosophy does not always manifest as stereotypical religious, pagan, new age, or other metaphysical spirituality, but can manifest as a consideration of possibilities, long-term consequences, and the factor of thought and emotion as it plays in the world of action and result. For the most part, we see the latter as how Spiritualist is manifesting in 2010 among people. Regardless of your personal philosophies, or your Personality's Attitude Overleaf, the world is "looking through" the lens of the Spiritualist at this point, with an emphasis on the more mundane aspects of this philosophy. The British Petroleum oil geyser has helped to bring this Spiritualistic Attitude into focus for many people across your species. Many "lessons" are being learned on many levels among people because of this event. This is not to say that the British Petroleum accident was part of any plan to "teach a lesson," because that is simply not the case, and in fact, is never the case with disasters or catastrophes on any level. Personalities and Souls often seek to extract lessons from painful or tragic experiences that are part of the nature of the Physical Plane, but these tragedies are not imposed upon the animals, plants, and people simply for the sake of "learning." They are things that "just happened," and one can learn from, or ignore, these events, and one can learn with or without tragedy and harm. An aside: True "accidents" are rare, and have quite traceable patterns of cause and effect, but this ability to trace the patterns does not mean that such accidental events are generated from some conscious or unconscious intent to learn from them. Often what are deemed "accidents" are merely results that are unwanted, unexpected, and unintended, but still a result of patterns that can be traced back through choices and actions. Keep in mind that we do not consider anything an accident that was anticipated by Essence or Personality, which gives one a wide sphere of vision. A True Accident is one that is not anticipated by Essence or Personality. Learning occurs after-the-fact of any event, whether that event was controlled and anticipated, or chaotic and a complete surprise. The Spiritualist Attitude has the greatest capacity for True Intelligence as it has the natural inclination for grasping the long-term consequences of thought, feeling, and action. It may be thought that those who are professional scientists and researchers are those who would not have Spiritualist as an Attitude, but something more along the lines of Skeptic or Realist, but that is not the case. Truly scientific thought comes from the imagination, visions, and the by-passing of logic that is necessary for breakthroughs. All Attitudes have the capacity for True Intelligence, but Spiritualist defaults to embracing the emotional, intuitive, perceptive forms of navigation, which are important elements of True Intelligence that other Attitudes can tend to reject, resist, or limit to specific contexts. The Spiritualist does not restrict intelligence to logic, and embraces the perceptive and intuitive, and this can be its strength or its weakness. The Positive Pole of Spiritualist is Verification, which allows for possibility, anticipation, and potential, but elaborates upon those qualities and validates them through the combined use of logic, intuition, and feeling. Validation for the Spiritualist is done through a loop of awareness that seeks to match possibility, pattern, and probability against actuality. The Negative Pole is Belief, which throws out all logic, intuition, and feeling and simply decides what is valid, or accepts what has been deemed as valid by others. What we have seen since the blunder that released the oil geyser is a rather somber Spiritualistic look at the far-reaching consequences of this event, and even a look back at the choices that have been made as a species that may have led to this event. For those in the Positive Pole of Verification, this may have provoked a soft look at how one is living, how one's choices add to the collective choices that can build and prompt, even if indirectly, larger events in the personal live, and world events on larger scales, such as the oil geyser. Consequences can become clear to those in Verification, not because there is an obvious, linear track between cause and effect, but that the cause and the effect are obvious, and that is enough. The questions and concerns that have crossed the minds of those interpreting this BP event through the Positive Pole are asking how, if at all, they can break their personal part in that chain of events. The Positive Pole brings a strong, collective sense about this event, with very little sense of blame for its manifestation, but more of a sense of awakening to the critical mass that has led to this kind of event. There may be strong feelings and thoughts about how the situation is being managed in the current state, but that is different from the examination of the patterns that have created the potential for this scenario in the first place. In other words, even the oldest, wisest, and enlightened of souls on the planet participate in daily conveniences that use resources that are drawn from the planet in less-than-savory ways. This may seem daunting to the older soul as a concern, but with some examination, and some embrace of the larger, long-term consequences of smaller, short-term choices and actions, considerations can come into focus that are meaningful. This applies to the personal life and its own "disasters" that can seem overwhelming. As you may see in the review from our last few reports through this channel, this Spiritualism is building upon the examination of Power Mode from the last "season." Those in the Negative Pole of Belief may manifest as having fallen prey to the belief in easy blame, anger, rejecting his or her part in the collective patterns that lead to consequences such as these. This inclination toward Belief is often couched in tones of indignation, dismay, disheartenment, self-righteousness, and of course, blame. This is not to say that those involved with the BP incident are not to be held accountable, if those who can do so will choose to do so, but to presume that one is not a part of the pattern that has led to this event is to cut out a vital part of the equation that could lead to alternatives and solutions. If you are reading this, you are more than likely a part of the pattern that led to the possibility and eventual manifestation of this event. Some fragments may stay away from blame, not because they grasp that it is useless, but because the Negative Pole also leans toward more immediate, self-gratifying Beliefs that avoid feeling, thinking, and acting. Such concepts as "positive energy," "healing light," and "sending good thoughts," etc., while having some validity, do not have validity for most, and certainly do not generate valid solutions for the problem that has prompted these kinds of responses. These concepts are often used as a means to opt out of utilizing perception, using any real thought, and act as an avoidance, suppression, or dismissal of feeling. There is a lack of any overview of consequences, emphasizing making oneself feel better as the priority in the guise of helpful intentions that require little beyond a few quick phrases. All "positive thought," "good intention," or "healing," when valid, must not only be a sustained state that is emphasized, but it must include Physical Plane follow-up and participation in some form. We can say that very little, if anything, happens when a simple "positive" glance of thought, feeling, or gesture in the general direction of an illness, catastrophe, or accident is offered up. This kind of problem-solving and life management is a symptom of Belief, the Negative Pole of Spiritualist. All that we have described here in the context of the BP Oil geyser can be applied on personal scales, as well. As July unfolds, so will the questions and examinations of the larger patterns of the life, and the look at the thoughts, feelings, and actions that contribute to those larger patterns. As that examination and questioning becomes more obvious, we would think that our students might begin to feel uneasy, slightly anxious, and begin a revisiting of some of the original ideas that had been intended for this year to manifest. To the extent that one begins to feel "back on track" before September ends, is the extent to which one would be free of the October through December "season" that examines the collective Chief Negative Features (fears). In light of what we have shared here, we can say that, in short, it can be helpful to understand: 1) A SINGLE CHOICE/DECISION DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MY WORLD, EVEN IF THAT DIFFERENCE IS NOT IMMEDIATELY DISCERNIBLE OR TANGIBLE, AND IT CAN MAKE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE. 2) UNWANTED, UNEXPECTED, ACCIDENTAL, and PAINFUL PERSONAL AND WORLD EVENTS CAN BE MANAGED, REDIRECTED, TRANSFORMED, or SOLVED THROUGH THE REQUIRED MIX OF THINKING, FEELING, and DOING. Those phrases might be helpful for bridging and building upon the explorations and experiences gathered over the first part of your year. KEY DATES over JULY: July 27-30 is a Nexus that is a Convergence of parallels focused on Breakthroughs, Solutions, and implementing long-term plans related to those. KEY PHRASE over JULY: "EVERYTHING I DO, FEEL, or THINK MAKES A DIFFERENCE." We realize we have extended upon the theme from our last report, but this is intentional and relevant as the transition into the Attitude takes root.
  2. December 6, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Centers and Body Types Note from Janet: Although the intent for the topic was Centers and Body Types, no discussion of Body Types occurred. [Michael_Entity] We are here. Hello to all of you. We will begin with the Energy Report as we see it for the weeks of December 9 through the 22nd. It is, of course, not a coincidence that many of you have begun discussing the properties and personal experiences of the Centers, as many of you are shifting into next year’s basic Centering at this time. Though a year’s “Overleaves” are not defined entirely and are not static at any given time, there is an overall set that does appear to have influence over varying levels of consciousness, at least symbolically. In the case of Older Souls, that set of influences can begin to take place in the few months before the new year. We will also note an unusual phenomenon that is occurring for all of you: currently, in such a short time span between them, another larger Nexus Shift occurs. It is not uncommon for great shifts to occur throughout a year, but another shift is beginning on the 10th, and another in January/February, while this is all following the large shift in November. These shifts with little “breaks” between them are creating a great amount of shifting in levels of Energy among your Overleaves and your ability to participate in the world. There appear to be distinct days when your energy seems quite inspired and above normal, while the next few will find you seeming to be locked in an infinite stream of constricting thoughts and low energy. For some this will feel like “limbo,” while for others this can feel “manic.” The Center for the next year, at this time, appears to be Moving, with bursts of Higher Moving. Unless you are Moving Centered, yourself, this is going to begin to feel like a time of shifting into OBVIOUS manifestations of what you are DOING. (We remind you that our Energy Reports are not predictions, they are merely comments on patterns and how you might be able to use them or dismiss them.) Having a field of Moving Centered Energy as the context for a period of time can mean a great deal of attention would be coming to the body and its relationship to its environment. We are speaking of its Physical environment, which can translate into a range from its sources of stimulation, affection, and activity, to its ability to use the finer energies that make up and create the Physical Plane. Some of you may begin to pull out your old copies of teachings which focus on the concepts of “creating your own reality” and take a more active approach to reality than usual. While others may begin to feel overwhelmed by the “responsibility” that the Moving Centers imply while Physical. Besides the fact of what you call “the holidays,” a stronger and stronger desire to be with those whom you care for and feel part of will begin to be a priority. If these basic trends continues and the next year continues with the Moving Centered theme, we will be able to comment more accurately on how it might manifest. For now, a primary theme appears to be those points we just mentioned, along with a heightened awareness of your food intake and ability to literally move (health). We will conclude the report here and take any questions about it before we discuss the Centers. [Kathryn] Many of us, myself included, have been feeling very drained and tired or just down lately. Is this the reaction to this energy report influence? [Michael_Entity] We don't believe the Energy Report itself has any influence as such, but the Energy, itself, we are reporting about may very well be what you are responding/reacting to. For those who have any kind of health deficiencies, however minute, the Moving Center will markedly “force” the body into a position that is more inclined to facilitate recovery. This can be sleep, mental distraction, high activity, anger, etc., but it’s point is to facilitate recovery. Another important factor to consider is the inherent nature of any Nexus having a sedating effect on the Human body as realities shift and creativity on another level is affecting the body. You do “create reality,” and that still uses energy. Most of the time, that energy is being held preciously by the Personality for reasons it doesn't even understand. The sedation and “tired phase” allows the “grip” to loosen and your reality can then free up some energy for changes to be made. Most of you have your Personalities quite in charge of your lives, even if it doesn't quite “know” what to do. When a shift is needed and the Personality is choosing to work with Essence, the Personality will gladly concede and “take a nap.” At some point, in some lifetime, a shift will happen wherein the Personality and Essence are aligned enough that control is not shifted from one to the other, but is shared. If there are no other questions on the Energy Report, we will discuss CENTERING. We feel there is no need to introduce the Centering to you, as many of you are already fairly studied in this area of our teaching. We will, however, respond to all of your questions about this area so as to clarify and help with the application of the information. [MaryBV] How does centering affect memory? [Michael_Entity] ALL Centers have their form of Memory in storage and retrieval. The Intellect stores and retrieves memory in the form of Thoughts, Ideas, and is Visually interpreted. The Emotional memories are stored and retrieved in the form what are commonly understood as Feelings, Emotions, and are Aurally interpreted. The Moving stores and retrieves its memories in the forms of Health, Activity, and are Sensually interpreted. Each Center does affect how events are remembered; especially in the mixture of the Centering with the Part. The Intellect affects the memory with its level of beliefs and justifications; the Emotions affect memory with its sentimentality and attachments; the Moving affects the memory through its levels of vitality and productivity at the time. For each of these examples above, they are only part of how each Center may affect memory, and those factors always stem from the PRESENT (retrieval), not how or what was stored. Each Center is involved in Memory, of course, but the habitual Centering will affect how a fragment's memory is used habitually. Each Ordinal Center is referencing memory of the current lifetime and physicality. If more information outside of that realm is required or resonating, it is then drawn through the Higher of that Center. The Instinctive Center is the communication medium between the Cardinal and Ordinal. Since the Instinct/Assimilation is usually maintaining the task of protection of the body, most memory filtered there is decidedly fearful or not. This is why most long-standing memories are either decidedly joyful or painful. We can continue to extrapolate on this topic, but we will ask if we are answering your question appropriate to your intent. [MaryBV] Well, I should have asked also how the role plays into this, but that is probably a topic for a whole discussion. [Michael_Entity] The Roles play little part in how memory is used or affected, since each lifetime sets a new design for the body and the Body/Personality is the tool for memory. The Essence's choice of Overleaves is the most direct impact. Since Time is not a factor for Essence, it does not have the need for “memory” as it is experienced on the Physical Plane. [MaryBV] I see, so what accounts for smell/taste, etc., in memory? [Michael_Entity] Every Cell and Atom in your body has the ability to “remember,” which means it has the ability to re-create. When the Personality or Body calls on a memory to be reconstructed, it will call on these minute parts of self to participate. It is of no mystery that you can recall a scene in a movie, which is Visual, but it is no more a mystery for the other senses to have that ability to reconstruct, as well. [WickedBear] Could you discuss the fundamental differences between the two action centers? [Michael_Entity] The most fundamental difference is in that the Ordinal pertains to the immediate environment of the Personality and Body, while the Cardinal pertains to all that encompasses that. The Moving Center, then, would govern and process the events of the actual, Physical Body and its health, activity, manipulation of environment, etc. The Higher Moving Center would then govern and process those similar things, but as they pertain to larger patterns that include everything pertaining to the Essence. It could be said that the Moving Center is the manifestation/expression of that particular Personality's part in the Higher Moving tapestry of the Essence. [Elf] Is the Part of Center chosen about the same time as the Centering? And what is most influential in that choice? [Michael_Entity] Centering is chosen by the age of 3 in most cases, while the Part/Trap is a habit by the age of 7 (approximately). The most influential aspect of that choice is in the major theme then settled on for the lifetime as to how to process events. The Center/Part becomes the Body's primary strength and challenge, and sets the stage for relationships, health, and beliefs for the majority of the life. Depending on your Centering and Part, you will find that your PART/TRAP becomes the defining obstacle to hurdle in coming to peace with a lifetime. If the balance can be called upon for any Center, regardless of habit, then a great freedom is experienced within the lifetime. The first examination of this is in the 4th Internal Monad when the Part is either simply a Part, or continues to be the Trap. Most will find as the life progresses that the Part becomes the Trap, the more they ignore the need for that third Center to be incorporated. As part of the process for finding that balance, the neglected Center will eventually require attention. For those lacking in the Moving Center, then health, prosperity, material security, physical need for affection and validation can become stages for its balance. For those lacking in the Intellectual Center, then over-questioning, overwhelm, isolation, indecisiveness, and unacknowledged dependence on others for direction are examples of where the imbalance can show up. For those lacking in the Emotional Center, then alienation, hypercriticism, unacknowledged issues of rejection, can tend to be some of the arenas for balance. [Elf] Thank you. So the Part/Trap of Center is then somewhat a part of the Life Task? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the Centering/Part are intrinsically linked to the Tasks of the Life. Centering habits tend to define how the Personality uses its 4 “pillars,” of which the Life Task (True Work), is one of those pillars. Your True Rest is directly linked to the use of your neglected Center. Your True Work is directly relating to the Goal. The Centering/Part is not inherently a challenge to your Life Task, but it is a powerful definition of the path. And with that, we will conclude. Good Night.
  3. 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. Lastly, Michael has repeatedly iterated that the dates are approximate probabilities, not set in stone. So the actual dates for each Nexus may have been off by some days depending on the timing of our personal and collective choices. 2012 (Based on events, my guess is this was a year of Collective Expectation) --- Dec 21= DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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 (Based on events, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Freedom) --- Jan 5-8= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch that either emphasize and amplify Collective Stubbornness, especially in Politics & International Events- or free themselves from that to move on. Feb 11-15= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Flow. 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= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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 merges 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: Themed in Resolution. 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 17-21= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels branch off to focus on strikingly different versions of our future Global Economy. This then pivots us all towards more of a Debt-based Economy, or a Resource-based Economy. Nov 9-11= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. 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: Themed in Death. A Nexus that merges any parallel versions of us/others that died over the past few months. Dec 15-19= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Acceleration. 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 (Based on events, my guess is this was a 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: Themed in Relating. 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: Themed in Turning Points. 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: Themed in Efficiency. 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= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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 Mid-Late 1700s CE where the US wasn’t founded and 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 1980s 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. Uma explored this more.) - 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 (Based on events, my guess is this was a 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: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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, merging with us. This Nexus then explores how technological impact is accelerating & how we need to either take breaks from it to return balance, or transform isolating technologies into more meaningful and intimate ones. - Apr 18-20= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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 from 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 was a reality check nexus that could 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 (A Year of Global Turning Points themed in Collective Realization [Confirmation]) --- Jan 10-15= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. 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= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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, and 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 occurred, it would narrow paths forward. - Apr 22-29= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A previous Energy Shift on April 16-19 that emphasized Power Struggles & made us see where our personal, national or global Center of Power is, may now result in a Shift in Power that closes down several potential parallels. May 30= MINI 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: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels branch off for those that are interested in escalating toward greater War. (DanielaS received notice about the 3 Themes of Parallels that diverged from this Nexus.) Sep 26= BREAKTHROUGH: For those in a Turning Point, this Nexus emphasizes Breakthrough and leaves behind the options of Breakdown. If this shift didn't come, you may have felt a huge release from gravity to float above and 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= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> 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 now- though it may not look like so as the wounds have to be clearly identified and pronounced, and the creation of such 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 and 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 (A Year of Collective Humanitarianism [This was confirmed, but I cannot find the Transcript, except for this.]) --- Jan 19-23= CONVERGENCE: Same as the December Convergence above. Feb 26-Mar 2= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A nexus bringing the first signs of Relief from recent events. It was an exit ramp for those interested in Extreme Versions of reality which removed 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: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Certain Parallels branch towards themes of War. (Note: This was explored in the Membership Gratitude Event, where Michael stated the highest probable nations that may be impacted by war were North Korea, South Korea, Russia and the USA. This involved Nuclear Weapons and Cyberattacks.) May 19-21= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A potentially Dramatic Shift to more meaningful, acceptable and inclusive negotiations among world leaders- or more turmoil, shock and extremism. - Jul 20-23= 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 and 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 up in the Political Arena. Aug 21= DIVERGENCE: Branching related to the Total Solar Eclipse that prompted unexpected effects triggering collective panic/shock or wonder/awe (especially in the US). Sep 20-23= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> More branching that shifted Parallels toward various extremes for the next 100 Years. As they split off, they acted like release valves bringing greater relief from pressure, or a continued sense of trust and calm in collective progress over collapse for our parallels “here”. - Oct 10-14= DIVERGENCE: A branching with unknown effects that were never explained. [Note from Kurtis: The #MeToo Movement exploded now.] 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” or “succeeded” at fulfilling key patterns 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 were integrating into our reality to seek help & this brought a sobering vision & awareness of the larger-scale issues for those who had been ignoring reality. 2018 (A Year of Collective Revolution [Confirmation by Kurtis]) --- Dec 23 2017 - Jul 11 2018= NEXUS BUBBLE: What is a Nexus Bubble? Michael says that Nexuses are like collective synaptic pathways for the mind of Human Sentience to explore various realities. Normally, Nexuses are generated by currents of thought, emotion and action branching off to explore incompatible interests that can no longer exist in the same reality, or merging in to combine strengths into the same reality. Sometimes however, a Nexus Bubble develops where this usual flow of branching and merging is stopped. This is similar to a synaptic cell being unable to pass its information and neurotransmitters onto the next cell. Whatever is generated as a thought, emotion or action is unable to go anywhere and has to be managed within. Why does a Nexus Bubble happen? This happens when the karmic and self-karmic themes Humanity is exploring become so heavy they weigh humanity down and have to be addressed. During this time then, we were forced to deal with the karma and self-karma of Perpetuating and Tolerating Intentional Violence, until everyone could see it was a clear problem. During a Nexus Bubble, any sense of personal reality is flipped upside down so we have to directly deal with the collective reality we all exist in. 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. (You can explore this in the Nexus Bubble Transcript) February 14-March 24= SIGNIFICANT EVENT: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> The month of March marked when the Nexus Bubble really kicked in. During this time, in response to the Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting in Parkland; Florida, the March for our Lives Movement arose. This was a tipping point in Gun Control that generated increased awareness of our addiction to violence and need to participate in politics. March marks when Humanity began to realize 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 faced the fear that we can't divide, separate, escape, compartmentalize ourselves from the world- and realized 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 DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This Nexus was characterized by a strong sense of acceleration, intensity and escalation. The Divergence was focused on a Liberation of incompatible & disparate parts of everyone that were bottled up in the same reality throughout the Nexus Bubble. The Convergence was 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. (Three Private Sessions talked about this: JanetH, Dawn and Becca.) Aug 25-27= CONVERGENCE: Parallels that each see "Strength in Numbers" and are willing to address, shift and resolve the looming potential of war & great conflict now merge. This marks a rise in serious awareness & consideration of the Reality of War, as Humanity comes to shift away from Young Soul ideas of Growing through Conflict, and into Mature Soul ideas of Growing through Compassion. September 25-27= DIVERGENCE: Sudden and solid obstacles came up that needed immediate solutions. The more one was locked into Dogma, the harder the path to solutions was for the Personality, Community or Planet. - November 5-11= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> Parallels diverge based on the US Midterms turnout towards True Leadership or True Dictatorship. The latter spin off to explore a morbid curiosity for and apathy to a 5 Year descent into Unimaginable Dystopia. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Private Session by Janet.) December 31-January 3= CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together to Heal and Recover. (Additional info was added on here thanks to DianeHB.) 2019 (A Year of Collective Empowerment [Confirmation by Rosario]) --- March 1-5= DIVERGENCE: Parallels spin off to explore various "worst-case scenarios". - April 19-22= CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together with a focus on the Cleanup and Sorting through of one’s house, relationships, mind etc. May 18-21= CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together to focus on True Grounding through a growing sense of emotional peace and sanctuary that is done with old problems, and ready to embrace new power and pleasure through revitalizing social connections. June 21= CONVERGENCE= We're merging with parallels that have increased inspiring actions in their lives and world towards renewed paths of enthusiasm for a better future- because they've committed to Participating in their lives, and now we are too. - Sep 19-21= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A major nexus to shift the world towards or away from Self-Destruction. If the shift is towards, it would be quite obvious. If it is away, then it would either show up as a quiet period, or a profoundly meaningful and moving event. - October 23-27= CONVERGENCE: This is another shift away from Self-Destruction, or a point in time in which those self-destructing can get a clearer understanding of it. November 25-27= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This is another shift away from Self-Destruction, and a point in time where Baby & Young Soul leaders self-destructing become more apparent. It marks the "beginning of the end" for Authoritarians who can no longer hold power in the Mature Soul Paradigm. This brings a new wave of levity, clarity, focus and enthusiasm for our future. December 21-27= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This is an Infinite Soul check-in that moves parallels towards or away from Infinite Soul Manifestation. Those moving towards are diving into self-destruction and further wounding; while those moving away are committed to collective evolution and healing. 2020 (A Year of Global Turning Points themed in Collective Participation [Confirmed by Bogi]) --- January 20-23= CONVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A Reunion of parallels from 1980 where the Mount Saint Helens Eruption was much worse, throwing the world into more devastating climate changes. This launched a wave of Climate Awareness that grew into Climate Action movements. A significant 2016 Election of Donald Trump still took place, but the parallels were unable to fully merge into us until we gathered the same amount of Climate Change action demands. This merging brought a wave of vision and inspiration for tackling the Climate Crisis, as these other parallels realized that while Humanity cannot control nature, we can control our effects on nature. February 28-29= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> A branch based on the collective response to an ultimatum and/or threat that brings clarity and focus. This launches an exploration of different outcomes for each over the next 5 to 10 years. [Note from Kurtis: This was a rather significant nexus wrapping up the US Primary Elections for Presidency; the Covid-19 Pandemic; and the potential for Infinite Soul Manifestation, such as based on Trump's threats for War with Iran.] - February - July NEXUS BUBBLE Another Nexus Bubble based on helping Humanity tackle its addiction to violence, and the Great Pause generated by the Covid-19 Pandemic. The whole world moved into a lockdown over March and April, and the Pandemic marked the first event shared by every Human on Earth at the same time. The Month of May marks the Month when the Nexus Bubble really set in. May 25-June 7= SIGNIFICANT EVENT= MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> At the end of May during the Nexus Bubble, the Death of George Floyd (a Black man unjustly killed by a White police officer) inspired a massive global wave of protests calling for Truth and Accountability by "Black Lives Matter". In the June Energy Report, this was noted to be an event that everyone in the future looks back on as a movement that changed everything. The event marks the first Breakthrough for all People of Color towards living in social and economic safety. - July 20-22= CONVERGENCE: This Convergence was noted as a potential and not a guaranteed nexus, based on whether we made progress towards collective healing, recovery and improvement like other parallels already had. In the August Energy Report, it's noted we successfully managed the Convergence. It brought seeds of inspiration and shifted us from using anger as fuel to power as motivation. It would have marked another significant Turning Point for Humanity, but its potential broke down as people were more exhausted than expected, opting to make change in smaller circles closer to home instead of on the global scale. If the Nexus had not occurred, it would have been a period for honestly addressing the issues we haven't collectively faced. - November 12-15= DIVERGENCE: MAJOR GLOBAL SHIFT -> This was an enormous Divergence. Michael notes it brought shifts towards or away from Climate Change Responsibility and Infinite Soul Activations for teaching the Logos. This would be responded to with either a heavy weight or a deep resolve of presence and empowerment. Branches based on the US Election moved towards Donald Trump being re-elected, not re-elected, or the election being derailed by Civil War. Due to massive youth and people of colour turnout at the polls, we landed in the "Trump not re-elected" parallels, and incidentally with a rather interesting predicament where the Democrats had a chance at narrowly winning the Senate in Georgia. Another major branch took place shortly after, between moving towards or away from an Escalating Pandemic and the Infinite Soul Manifestation. We landed in the Escalating Pandemic & Infinite Soul Manifesting trajectory. BeccatheStudent recieved that the IS is not manifesting for Intervention as it usually would, but for Anchoring. This is further explored in the 2021 State of the Planet, which shares that the IS is manifesting as a reflection of Humanity's readiness to save itself by no longer tolerating inhumanity. 2021 (A Year of Collective Caring) --- n/a (Note: January 6th and following days was a significant event based upon the Capitol Riots by White Supremacists. These occurred shortly after amazing coordination in Georgia for increasing voter turnout, led to the Democrats winning the Senate runoff elections. -> March is noted as the next possible shift.)
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. ENERGY REPORT JULY 2012 As a cycle of pre-measured time unfolds, such as a year, it can be anticipated in understanding similar to describing and anticipating any Personality. Any system, such as another Personality system, Astrology, and even frequencies and meanings of color, could be used to describe these cycles of time, as they could also be used to describe geographical locations, communities, etc. because if there is a basic understanding of any system, it can be superimposed in a way that is quite useful and empowering. The greater the understanding of the system, the greater the understanding of that which is being superimposed upon. However, a vital, key awareness in any process of interpretation or superimposition is that “the map is never the terrain.” In other words, we can describe the year in Overleaves, Astrological terms, Color, etc, but that year will never exist through only those words; you still must live through the year as a way to know that year. This is true of any map. The ATTITUDE in our system of Personality is the individual’s “map” of the terrain through which they will journey. It is your system of superimposition and interpretation. The Attitude is the lens through which one perceives, interprets, and archives his or her life, but IT IS NOT THE LIFE. When one looks at a map of New York City, it is not the same thing as walking its streets. When one looks at the stories of history books, it is not the same thing as having been there. When one looks through the eyes of his or her Attitude, it is not the same thing as what is being seen. We point this out because the shift in July moves in emphasis from the MODE to the ATTITUDE. Your Attitude is your collection of maps. One’s Attitude is never just one map, but many, and always a collection that supports the same basic system of interpretation and superimposition that you are working to explore. This system is described by the name of the Attitude, One begins to collect maps of the terrain of their life soon after the 2nd Internal Monad, or when one actually begins to develop his or her own stable mobility. The maps used at 10 years old are very different from the maps used at 21 or 45 or 75, but they can be strikingly similar, with the maps building in extensiveness rather than in replacement, though a complete replacement of one’s maps can and does change, depending upon imprinting. As with our own Overleaf System, or any mapping system, the system of interpretation and superimposition is fairly neutral, and cannot determine the experiences that one will have when actually exploring the “terrain.” For example, the Idealist or a Spiritualist Attitude do not have an easier time, or a better perspective, than a Cynic or a Skeptic, but these different Attitudes do have very different systems of interpretation and superimposition; very different maps. One of the reasons we find that the cycles of a year move through an emphasis on the Attitude is so that all Attitudes may have a period of time each year to “see” the maps that may not be their own. We might compare this to one person becoming rather dependent upon a Subway Map of New York City, but then finding themselves looking at a map of walking tours through the Parks of New York City. It is not that one is better than the other, but having exposure to both (and more) can greatly enhance one’s understanding of the city, and this can be said about your own exposure to the different Attitudes and maps that are used around you. You will always return to your own map, but there would come to be a sense of these other maps that can be carried with you and understood, even if not your default map. This allows you to understand the greater collective experience. To deny this expansion would be similar to someone describing New York City only terms of its Subway routes, denying all maps of waterways, Restaurants or Parks or Museums, etc. There is a necessity for multiple maps for a single terrain, because a single terrain offers up multiple layers of experiences. Your Attitude is not the truth, it is merely your means of exploring the truth. Soul Age often corresponds to the number of maps one can carry, if you will. The younger the soul, the fewer the maps, and the more invested and engrossed one is with the maps that are one’s own. However, as the soul grows, the Personalities begin to carry around more maps, or put in terms relative to our Teaching, the Attitude expands. As the soul ages, its corresponding Personalities seek to understand more and more maps that are not one’s own, and this is why we share the Energy Report. Understanding the collective world as it is being explored through a dominant, collective Attitude, helps one to expand upon one’s place within the largest map of all, that eventually includes all of you. As July unfolds, the collective emphasis is moving into the Attitude of Spiritualist. This means that the shift of perspective, or the system of interpretation and superimposition, is one toward POTENTIAL and POSSIBILITY. As with any move through cycle, there tends to come an “entrance” through the more focused, restricted, and often fearful Negative Pole, and eventually a move into the broader, more inclusive, often loving Positive Pole. In this case, it would mean that July will probably begin by exploring Potential and Possibility through the more restricted, fearful, and focused lens. The perspective would be one that still emphasizes Potential and Possibility, but may tend toward the worst-case possibilities and potentials. This is not a bad thing. It is natural, and is intended to be a helpful perspective. One cannot explore the greater and preferable possibilities and potentials without, first, exploring the potential pitfalls and possible hurdles. The Negative Pole of Spiritualist is described as BELIEF. Belief is (consciously or unintentionally) confusing what MIGHT be true for what IS true. Just because something may be true does not mean that it is true, but Belief will insist that something is true, despite all lack of experience, and it often requires a rejection of feedback, facts, and discernment. If Spiritualist Attitude is about “what could be,”, then BELIEF is the insistence on “what could be” as being the same thing as the truth, instead of remaining as a potential truth. Belief is synonymous with Faith, or more accurately, Blind Faith. Beliefs are systems of interpretation and superimpositions that you have decided are true, but either have no evidence or support for that truth or perspective, or have rejected all evidence and support for the contrary. Belief could be understood as a map that has no terrain, or when one insists that the map IS the terrain, and blindly moves about based upon determined symbolism, rather than on feedback, facts, validation, discernment, etc. BELIEF is not necessarily a “bad thing,” as the Negative Pole is entered precisely for the process of discernment, validation, feedback, etc. It is an opportunity to look at what you Believe vs what is true. It is only when one decides to remain there that this Negative Pole is “negative.” Having a set of possibilities and potentials is something that experience helps to weed through so that what is true for you can come to light, not only in terms of a Personal level (what is true for you), but a Global (what is true relative to Earth’s species, sciences, and nature) and Universal level (what is true of the Universe regardless of what is true for a species or planet), as well. Holding on to those possibilities and potentials (whether “good” or “bad”) is not the same thing as remaining in the Negative Pole. Once one has an understanding of all that he or she thinks or knows is possible or potential, then the aim is for the Positive Pole, which is VERIFICATION. Verification is the process of validating what you may have been told, or what you may have decided, is possible and potential. It is the measuring of the map against the terrain, and either updating the map, or replacing it. Verification allows one to see what is true, rather than simply insisting on what is true. Again, if you carry around a set of possibilities and potentials that have no validation, that is not the same thing as Belief. Some truths take time and energy to uncover, build, discover, validate, and know. Everyone carries around a great set of potentials and possibilities, but it is only when there is no interest in Verifying these that there comes to be fear, blind faith, and Belief. And so it is that July may come in as an awkward mix of sensing and anticipating exciting prospects, but finding oneself directing attention toward potential problems or pitfalls. Knowing these are possibilities, you can go forward and Verify, but if you treat these as truths before that, you have fallen into Belief. Remember that while there is an emphasis on the Attitude now, it is being built from the previous emphases of the Goal and Mode, and the Role and Center.... The “season” of the Attitude helps to put together all that has come to be experienced in the first part of the year, by not only and brings in the mapping systems for helping to determine where to go, next. We think that as July unfolds for our students, it might be experienced as an extreme between overwhelming disorientation and striking clarity. This would depend upon how much you might feel you must sort out as you pivot into a direction that is of your choice. As this year is one that we described through the Role of King, Emotional/Instinctive Centering, Goal of Growth, and Passion Mode, then it goes that we are seeing a great portion of our students passively or actively stripping the life of anything that goes against a sense of Mastery, Inspirational Perception, Evolution and Meaning, and Self-actualization, or bringing more of “you” out of you and into the world. July may be the first month where this begins to sink in; that you may be leaving a great deal of “you” behind that is no longer supportive of the directions you would like to grow. If you find that July has launched into a state of overwhelm, we suggest that you consider using your own Attitude, whatever that may be, to interpret your life in the best possible light you can, because the collective Attitude of Spiritualist is supportive of this. For those who are experiencing the greatest overwhelm, we suggest that you are seeing the results of a shift you have been longing for, for a very long time. The next three months would be of some importance to you for stabilizing yourself as you pivot, but allow yourself the freedom for these changes and invite yourself to expand your map, or your collection of maps. When one has been in a momentum for a long time, the shift can seem shocking, but there would be very little chance of avoiding that. Sometimes when one has been traveling a road for a long time in the dark, when the lights come up, the turn that had always been intended is “right there,” and to swerve onto the nearest off-ramp is the only way to get onto it, which means you may find yourself thrown about a bit. If you find that July has launched into a kind of state of clarity, we suggest that you consider using your own Attitude, whatever that may be, to consciously choose your priorities. You may not be in the same position as those who are overwhelmed, but you could easily fall into this if you do not follow through with your own perspective of clarity toward those things that have come to be understood as your priorities. Prioritizing will not eliminate your other potentials and possibilities, but will simply help to fulfill the potential and possibility of that which is most important to you. Keep in mind that our Energy Reports here describe the experiences of those who tend to be actively participating “in the world,” but those who may have more insular lives might not find much relevance here. Helpful thoughts over JULY might be: 1) I CAN HAVE ANYTHING I WANT, BUT I CANNOT HAVE EVERYTHING I WANT This is an important phrase for those seeking to accomplish or fulfill anything that requires time, experience, patience, energy, and effort. Possibilities are always infinite, but you can only do so much, and experience so much. When one presumes that one should be able to have everything one wants NOW, it can halt the progress and effectiveness of nearly every effort. When one presumes one should have all of the priorities of possibility, or none at all, progress and effectiveness can greatly diminish. Organizing possibilities into priorities helps create a circuit of effectiveness and progress that can help one to remain inspired, to grow, to master, and to enjoy this life. 2) THIS MAP IS NOT THE ONLY MAP As July unfolds, it will be helpful to remember that, no matter how invested you are in your truth, even if backed by experience, there are other versions of interpretation and superimposition that exist just as validly as the one with which you have come to be so invested. Often, the greater the change in your life, the more likely the necessity for you to upgrade your way of interpreting your life. You will never be without your map, but you can sometimes find yourself lost in it, instead of living it. Remembering that your map is not the only map, and that the map is not the terrain, can greatly free you to understand and enjoy any great changes that come into your life. DATES OF INTEREST JULY 4th - 7th - this is not a Divergence or a Convergence, but something we might best describe as a “window.” This period of time might be experienced as exploring several possibilities, either in the imagination, or through conversations, etc, or it may simply come as a kind of floating, limbo-like period. These “windows” tend to be generated when there is a sense of a greater collective shift in the year ahead, and this helps to align or move away from that greater shift. JULY 27th - Another “window,” with an emphasis on comparing perspectives (internally or externally) among those closest to you about plans for the rest of the year.
  8. December 20, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We will begin with an Energy Report as it stands for the weeks between December 23 to January 5. We can announce the tentative, but generally firm, Overleaves for the year 2002 at this time, as well: Priest, Discrimination, Passion, Pragmatist, Impatience/Martyrdom, Moving Center/Intellectual Part. It would be more accurate when assigning Overleaves to the general energy of a year to assume each primary Overleaf noted will also shift to its “partner” Overleaf on its axis. This will occur in varying degrees in the same way an individual would use the Overleaves. With these Overleaves “in the air,” many of you are already feeling the impact of that energy, as we noted in our previous discussion. We will remind you that the Centering and Role is the overall context for the year, while the Goal will tell you more about the first three months’ focus of the year, the Mode generally describing the next three months, the Attitude manifesting more in the next three months, and the Chief Features heightened in the last three months. You could say that January through March would be a time of heightened discrimination through refinement or rejection; April through June will bring relationships into a state of passionate self-actualization or identification; July through September will an examination of the year-to-date through the pragmatic practicality or dogmatism; and October through December would be the freedom from or the indulgence in the Chief Features. Regardless of your Overleaves, if you are interacting in the world, then your actions and expression and beliefs will be affected by the collective filter of Overleaves for the year. For now, we can say your personal choices and decisions will seem to take on a much deeper, serious, and extending impact than usual, when you consider your options. Adding to Discrimination the Moving Center, you may find that your choices/decisions are either going to root you into some form of obvious productivity for the year, or descend into mere freneticism. Because of the Intellectual Part of this year, you may start to feel more and more drawn to touch others, talk more openly than usual, and seek out the depths of real communication. The Intellectual Part of the Moving Center will set this year in a state of rapid rates of interaction, sharing of knowledge and ideas, wants and feelings as they rise in the body. Of course, this energy could also manifest through as simply choosing to be inappropriate, angry, hateful, combative verbally, being defensive and talking without listening. The energy of Discrimination is particularly difficult for those with the Goals of Acceptance, Growth, and Dominance. If you have these Goals, you may find these next three months to be either a clear path to what you seek in experience, or a complete overhaul of your original ideas for what was to come. Submission, Discrimination, Re-evaluation, and Flow will have less stressful manifestations because they are, in general, always having to scrutinize the environment around them anyway. These Overleaves may be more familiar with the energy and people having them may be turned to for a fair amount of guidance and support in the next few months. Within the next two weeks, we believe there will begin to be a strong division among people as you near the end of the year, based on your own Individual Centering, which may set the mood for the year ahead. Those who are naturally more Moving Centered will begin to feel a stronger importance to be free, undistracted, and unimpeded at any cost. Those who are Emotional or Intellectual may find the next two weeks to be more of a strain on the body as they try to upgrade, replace, or release old, comfortable routines of interaction and expression that may not work in the year ahead. In short, over the next two weeks, each of you will most likely meet with glaring clarity, the very psychic walls you may be living within as a means to make the world seem something different than it is. With the vague “war” happening in your background, your Moving Center may be on high alert as to how you are going to make the best of things “while you can,” help you see how you can make major changes, and/or move you into an overwhelming state that will challenge the best of Idealists. We suggest being open to discussion among people you trust as you open to your feelings, thoughts, and plans as a means of empowerment and security changes. The three Needs which will be focused on for the year, by the way, would then be Power, Security, and Exchange. The next two weeks marks the beginning of a potentially, highly refined time which will allow absolute clarity into your paths, collectively and individually, or a complete submersion into all elements of the life which have been rejected. [Annette] Could Michael spend some time giving us details about Cadre 5, Entity 2, what the chosen work is, what the configuration of the group is, and any details Michael thinks may be of interest to us? [M_Entity] CADRE 5/Entity 2: Primarily Servers and Sages with the overall theme of Stability/Balance, like any other Entity 2, but in the context of the Cadre 5 Energy of Beauty wherein all of this Cadre will bring some kind of teaching about perceptions of Energy/Beauty. This particular Entity has a general specific theme of “Preserving or Replacing Foundations.” This could manifest in any number of ways, but most from this Entity can be found having very high Ideals with which the imperfect world must contend. This Entity could be nicknamed, “the perfectionists.” This should be enough for now, though there is a great deal more that could be said for any Cadre or Entity. [Dewliet] Hi Michael. Would you please discuss the concept of “missing” other people (i.e. “longing for”) as it relates to overleaves, soul age, etc.? I seem to have kind of an “out of sight, out of mind” attitude and never really “miss” anyone, no matter how much I love them — this goes for my husband and kids, parents, everybody. I was wondering if this is likely a function of overleaves or some combination of CF and false personality. [M_Entity] This is a particular trait of Artisans. “Missing” people whom you know within a lifetime can be a trait anyone can develop in their varying degrees of attachment, but Artisans tend to be the least likely to attach to an individual identity. Artisans, however, can be the most likely to have a feeling of “missing something” that cannot be defined, which is, of course, linked to their existence at the “edge” of creation and their innate knowing that all are “one.” This can lead to all kinds of fantastical and invalid ideas about who they are or are not “connected” to. This is not to say Artisans do not get attached to people, but usually they will choose a single individual, if any at all, and that person will not have to be “missed” because that Artisan would die before separating from them. We say that metaphorically, of course. The Overleaves themselves are not inherently geared toward or away from attachment, except in how they manifest the Chief Features and create or balance Karma. Everyone deals with attachment in some form or another. Only the Old Soul Age could be said to be free from the challenges of attachment, but even that is only near the end of that cycle. [nemo999] Can one person direct qualities of their overleaves, such as Flow, to another person? [M_Entity] Of course. Whatever an Individual has as a Goal for the life will be “directed” toward everything and everyone in some way within the spectrum between the Positive and Negative Poles. This is how an Individual “extracts” or “creates” their experiences in interaction with the world to lend them the progress toward the fulfillment of the Goal. Now, if you are asking if you can help soothe a person into Flow when that person’s Goal is Growth, for example, then we would say, no. You may be able to provide a context within the energy of your own Personality for that person to get back into his/her Positive Pole, but you would not be able to “change” their Goal, however briefly. Did either of these responses address the intention behind your question? [nemo999] Sort of…. [M_Entity] We will encourage clarity in the questioning then. Re-ask the question in a new way. [nemo999] If I have extra Flow, can I send it to help someone flow with their growth? [M_Entity] There is nothing such as “extra Flow,” so we do not believe you can “send it,” but, as we said before, you CAN provide a context (through support, security, comfort, communication, etc.) which can help guide a person through their own Overleaves. We will remind you all that nothing, not even Love or “Light” can be “sent” to someone. Energy can only be RESONATED between yourselves and someone else, which means metaphorically striking a specific chord within yourself that has the potential to “vibrate” that similar chord or note within the other person or event. In your case, “Nemo,” your own position with the Positive Pole of your Goal could have the effect of moving another to their own Positive Pole. If that person chooses to allow the resonance. [ShannonB] I have to ask about the war. What are the continuing probabilities of terrorist strikes against the United States and the UK in the early months of 2002, and what kinds of strikes are being contemplated? [M_Entity] The probabilities are still quite high at 72%. The Mid Western United States stands as the most vulnerable at this point, particularly Chicago. New York City is not “in the clear” yet, with general ideas to destroy either communications or public transports, both of which are not protected in any meaningful way. Paris and England stand as targets, but not nearly as high in probability at 48%. These numbers are being determined within the time frame between what is now and the end of March 2002, though this could change at any moment. [MaryBV] I would like to know if Artisans generally have a hard time working with the public. I have felt this most of my life, but now with your answer to Julie’s que I am thinking this is true. Are Artisan’s best employed in more solitary professions? [M_Entity] Most Artisans, yes, as they are Ordinal, unless with a higher amount of Cardinal Overleaves to affect this. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  9. ENERGY REPORT December 2015 2015 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Scholar (emphasized all year) CENTER: H. Moving (default to Moving) (emphasized all year) GOAL: Submission (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Stoic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Stubbornness/Greed (emphasized Oct - Dec) DECEMBER launches further into the momentum of irritation that has been in effect since October, but shifts more toward anxiety, worry, distraction, or some version of distancing, disengagement, or even depression, all of which seem to be the side effect of one’s degree of distrust for the future. December is a pivotal month regarding “the future” and many of our students know this, either because of actual events and choices that are immediately in front of them, or because there is an intuitive sense that patterns have moved toward a turning point. December, then, is all about “the future.” Though the perspective is on the future, it is a continuation of exploration of CHANGE in response or reaction to the heavy Stubbornness in place. The concern over “the future” may be more subconscious or even unconscious as there is more pressing considerations about changes to be made, or that have been made, or that need to be made, or that have been resisted. Some will be wishing that things would not change, while others would be eager for change, while others may be bracing for changes that they feel they are only affected by, but are not affecting. Dreams may be quite insightful over December if one can sort the symbolic dreams out from the anxiety dreams. Anxiety dreams may be more prominent in December as the shift toward the new year draws closer. Anxiety can be the result of dread or from anticipation, but both will be related to the unknowns of 2016. December will have many of our students looking at how to balance the importance of self-nurturing with the sense of self-preservation. Change that is anticipated as “good” can tend to bring out one’s self-nurturing, but change that is dreaded as “bad” can bring out one’s self-preservation. So as December unfolds, look closely to see if you are leaning toward nurture or preservation, and see if you can see why you anticipate or dread “the future.” It is important to understand that “the future” does not exist as anything more than potential. However anticipated or dreaded, it simply does not exist. The future is perpetually in a state of potential, but will never exist because once it exists, it is no longer “the future.” This is an important differentiation because one can be more conscious of how one is navigating the present in anticipation or dread of a future that does not exist. If the future only exists as a state of potential, it means your choices, actions, feelings, and thoughts matter all the way up to the moment that the future becomes your present. Your degree of control over the future will always fluctuate, but if you wish to be as much a participant of the creation of that future as possible, then you must consider your choices, actions, feelings, and thoughts that lay out the path in front of you toward the future. On the most practical side, your conscious awareness NOW certainly helps you to navigate your path toward even the most unexpected of futures. On the more metaphysical side, your conscious awareness NOW does help align you toward future potentials that you prefer, even if not in form, then in function. In other words, even if when “the future” arrives it does not look the way you expected, the effects can still bring benefits that matter to you even more than the exact form. Our point being that, regardless of how much one dreads or anticipates the future, your participation NOW matters more in both the terms of how you navigate toward that future, and what that future holds for you. If you are eager for the future, dreading it, unsure about it, hiding from it, resisting it, etc. it can be helpful to understand that the future is already here. What exists today, this moment, was once “the future,” and every time “the future” arrives it will be right now, today, this moment. And what you do or do not do with this moment matters. This is why we focus on choice as your point of power. Your dreams are important. Your fears inform you. The future is potential. The past is your teacher. But your choice is your power. Keep this in mind as you move through December and navigate toward the unknowns of 2016. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): December 18 -- ENERGY SHIFT - HIGHER MOVING SURGE - A day that may mark a “big change” for many of our students in subtle or obvious ways toward the momentum that will carry through 2016 on some level. A day that may bring some obvious insight into the momentum of 2016 for the planet. December 25 - 28 -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - A branching of parallels between Anticipated and Dreaded versions of “the future.” HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER DECEMBER: THE FUTURE IS NOW - You cannot control the future. You can only participate in the creation of it through choice, actions, and responses as you navigate toward it. YOUR FEELINGS ARE NOT THE FUTURE - How you feel about the future is not the same thing as the future. How you feel only ever tells you how you feel about now. How you feel does not even inform you about the past. It is always about how you feel about NOW. How you feel now helps to create the future, and helps you to learn from the past. The more you own your feelings instead of letting them own you, the more they can inform you so that you can make your choices, actions, and responses with conscious awareness. Your feelings may not be the future, but they do help you to understand where you are in your relation to your ideas of the future. BONUS 2016 OVERLEAVES PREVIEW (subject to change) 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)
  10. ENERGY REPORT JUNE 2010 April marked the shift of emphasis from the GOAL of the year to the MODE for the year. We remind you that it is not that the energy represented by the GOAL dissipates, but that it is built upon. In this case, the Mode of Power is building upon the Goal of Dominance. What we have seen over May among our students has been an interesting display of exploration of Power Mode in that our students have truly exemplified the range between AUTHORITY and OPPRESSION, the positive and negative poles. For those who have resisted their personal sense of right to express themselves, and to be present in their lives, the emphasis over May would have been on those factors within and without that contribute to the sense of Oppression. This appears to have shown up for many as symbolic on levels that go beyond the obvious. What we have seen is that, rather than seek to transform the more intimate elements of oppression that may contribute to the sense of lacking presence, importance, meaning, effectiveness, expression, etc., this was explored in terms of global events symbolizing the same. Because the vision of the Older Soul can sometimes be far-sighted in emphasis, missing what is "right in front" of them, the symbols that are necessary for transforming personal challenges can show up externally, and in impersonal ways. This can then show up in politics, natural disasters, major headlines, etc. For instance, the recent blunders of British Petroleum have helped to accommodate many in terms of exploring Power, as this is directly rooted across political, disaster, environmental, climate, major headlines, etc. Some of our students may have become depressed, angry, or deeply affected by this recent event, and for those students we would suggest that your challenges with personal expression are related to how you view yourself in relation to "The World." Your personal sense of expression, authority, meaning, effectiveness, etc, are challenged by the question of how much of a difference one person can make on such large scales. For those students, we would suggest that this is your chance to embrace two Universal Truths that exist, with or without your acceptance, approval, or comprehension: 1) A SINGLE FRAGMENT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD, EVEN IF THAT DIFFERENCE IS NOT IMMEDIATELY DISCERNIBLE OR TANGIBLE, AND CAN MAKE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE. 2) EVERY CHOICE in THOUGHT, FEELING, and/or ACTION MAKES A DIFFERENCE IMMEDIATELY WITHIN THE PERSONAL LIFE, AND THAT CHOICE CAN MAKE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE, EVEN IF THIS IS NOT IMMEDIATELY DISCERNIBLE or TANGIBLE WITHIN OTHER FRAGMENTS' LIVES. For other fragments, the month of May revealed the challenges of Oppression more intimately within one's relationship to career, other individuals, to dreams, to animal companions, etc. Those relationships are far less symbolic, and specific to the dynamics of that relationship. In those cases, we would suggest keeping in mind the question of how PRESENT one has been in those relationships, and the degree to which one has been Present is the degree to which one has been Honest. The degree to which one is Honest and Present is the degree to which one is in Authority of one's own Expression. Being Honest and Present does not mean that one has to put oneself in danger, if being more restricted in expression is necessary for "keeping the peace," or not provoking danger, but then for one to make that choice it is an act of Authority, and is not a matter of Oppression; this is simply a smart choice that takes into account the impact of expression in that relationship. When one makes the choice to withhold expression for the sake of navigating real danger, it does not feel in any way Oppressive, but feels intelligent, temporary, and within context. For those relationships where fear is dominant in an unnecessary way, then it is usually a matter of dishonesty and lack of presence, particularly if one feels Oppressed. The key to moving from Oppression to Authority within your relationship to anyone or anything is to rekindle your power of choice. In terms of your relationship to the world, your power of choice would have to undergo a redefinition that is not dependent on immediate gratification, but upon the honesty and presence of your expression as you deem necessary. In terms of relationship to others, and to more specific situations, your power of choice would have to undergo a redefinition that is not dependent upon convenience, comfort, or the approval of others, but upon your sense of honesty and presence as is necessary for your well-being. In addition to our review of May, we will also note that a drop in energy for most has occurred, and by this we simply mean that a momentum that was in place from January has now come to a pivotal period of evaluation. One's sense of effectiveness, presence, personal expression, etc. is being explored, and while this is being done in relation to the world and others, it is quite a personal evaluation. This will continue through June. As June unfolds, we would say that this month is the month TO TALK IT OUT. June is pivotal in terms of one's evaluation of personal Power, expression, and presence, in that it may require you to confide in someone, openly or privately. These talks can be with others who will help you to find your blind spots, or with those with whom you have any challenges related to lack of presence, stifled expression, or dishonesty in your self-representation. These talks can be for the point of finding solutions, or for the point of venting so that a clearer space can be made in the psyche for alternative perspectives and insights. However one might feel he or she is challenged in terms of relationship to the world or to others, June has revealed a pattern that is supportive of TALKING IT OUT, which means speaking or writing words that best convey your more intangible feelings and thoughts. For those who have moved through May into the more Authoritative end of the poles of POWER, it may have been experienced as revelations within current relationships, or as the emphasis on new relationships that embody a long-term ideal of honesty, presence, and expression. This does not mean those who have moved through these months in the positive pole of the Power Mode energy do not have feelings about the blunder of British Petroleum, or that there are not other areas of the life that may need addressing, but that there is at least one example of how Power Mode can play out when in the Positive Pole of Authority within a relationship. June appears to bring with it one of the more recent, impressive displays of Power Mode in the media and politics, so we do expect to find many students finding insight and inspiration from that symbolism in terms of how that may work on a more personal scale. We do not know if this display is in terms of Positive or Negative expression, but we suspect that this would be determined on a relative level. This is not a prediction, but merely an observation of momentum. KEY DATES over JUNE: no specific dates KEY PHRASE over JUNE: "I CHOOSE TO BE PRESENT and HONEST IN MY EXPRESSION" We suggest this as a key phrase for any moment one feels frustrated by any limitations upon personal expression, in relation to the world, or to another. This would allow for a quick assessment of whether the moment is appropriate for personal expression, or whether it is in fact your authority that is choosing to limit expression. It is also a phrase that would help to remind one that Power is not always an immediately tangible, gratifying energy, but one that plants seeds, weaves within and among other choices, and accumulates into pivotal moments of change.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. ENERGY REPORTJanuary 20162016 OVERLEAVESROLE: 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)JANUARY begins the shift into a new Role and Center for the year, and the initial introduction into the Goal for the year. The Role and Center will be undercurrents throughout the year, and while the Goal (and all overleaves for the year) are currents throughout the year, the Goal is emphasized mostly in January through March. This sets the tone for the year, if you will. This is a Server year. This means that sensitivity is going to run higher than usual and this can be met with recoil, reaction, and resentment, or met with impulses to help, to reach out, to care and nurture that which seems to be in most need at the moment. A Server year can feel overwhelming even when approached positively because it is a year where NEEDS come to the surface more than usual. Wants are set aside and Needs come to your attention. Your own Needs and the Needs of others. It is a good time for reviewing the Nine Needs that every person is responsible for upholding for himself or herself. Others can help in supporting or challenging those Needs, but only you can truly provide them for yourself. We will further discuss the Nine Needs with our students if this is requested.When there is a year in which Need is emphasized, it is important to consider your resources. If you cannot give, you cannot give. This is an important consideration. Give when you can, and give what you can, but know your limits. This limitation is not a shame, nor is it necessary to be enforced with defenses. It is simply honest that is important to communicate. When you need help, it is just as important to understand that not everyone can or will give. If you do not have responses to your needs around you, it okay to look elsewhere. It is okay to keep looking. It is okay to keep asking for the help. Keep in mind that if you find that responses are perpetually saying “no” or not responding, it may be that you are the one you need to ask and the one who needs to give. It is often the case that when one expects solutions personal needs to come from others, but finds that the asking for help pushes people further away, it can be a reflection that you are the one who is not doing the work of providing for your needs. This is not always the case, but is often the case. You are quite often your own best and immediate resource of help, support, and kindness. This is not to emphasize separation or isolation. It is a means of nurturing your own reserves and resources so that you can return to being a giver.The Moving Center for this year should be a fairly smooth transition from the Higher Moving/Moving Center of the previous year, but with a sharp plunge into physicality. A Higher Moving Center year tends to focus on larger patterns and instances of sexual and spiritual resonance, whereas the Moving Center tends to focus on details of “tighter” patterns and instances of physical harmonies or discord. In a Higher Moving Center year one can “float” above the patterns unfolding “below,” but in a Moving Center year you may find yourself “right in the middle” of intensity, activity, discord or bliss. Issues of the body, health, weather, material well-being all tend to come into focus and intensify in demand for attention, relief, revitalizing, reconsideration, recalibration, resolution, etc. A Moving Center year brings patterns that “bump into each other” in ways that can bring surprising unions and shocking collisions in any of the above contexts. In Higher Moving Center years large groups of fragments tend to exit together, but in a Moving Center year there tends to be a disproportionately high exit of individuals. In other words, disasters or accidents can tend to be common scenarios for large groups to exit in a Higher Moving Center year, but in an Moving Center year it is separate individuals in separate lives and with no apparent connections, but seemingly one after another after another. Higher Moving and Moving Center years are popular for deaths.With the Goal of Discrimination coming into focus, the initial wave of energy would likely be from the Negative Pole that is REJECTION. In other words, most will not like the beginning of this year. January will not be looked upon as delightful or a “good start.” This is not true, but it may feel this way.Discrimination is a Goal that aims for one to learn better how to choose by learning how to say NO. The Positive Pole is REFINEMENT or Sophistication while the Negative Pole is REJECTION. Rejection is a way to avoid choosing by saying no to everything. Refinement is the confidence and honesty to say no when you mean no, so that you can feel comfortable saying yes.In a year where Discrimination is the Goal, there tends to be a process of introduction through Rejection and then an eventual Refinement. The year will tend to bring one up against all things that one has tended to reject in some way and that has not been explored for nuance and variation. These are things that you simply have put into the category of NO. You may not want to look at these things, to experience these things, to revisit these things, to be touched by these things, but they are likely things that will not go away. You will have avoided dealing with them by simply rejecting them. If you are finding your year starting out with some strong elements NO, you may be inviting yourself to look closer at what you have rejected and find the nuance, beauty, possibility, or peace. If that is the case, you can still say no, but you will know if you mean it or if you are simply avoiding responsibility.We will discuss more on Needs and Refinement as the season unfolds.DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate):January 10 - 15 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - a reunion of parallels linking together similar parallels but where fragments were living versus having died. For most who die within the next 3 months, it is final closure of all of their parallels.January 20 - 25 -- ENERGY SHIFT - RELIEF - A shift in energy may come for many of our students of this time to bring some kind of relief, release, a catching of breath, some rest, energy, burst of creativity, socializing, etc. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JANUARY:YOU ARE NEVER NOT CHOOSING - Rejection is a choice. It is an attempt to avoid choice, but it is a choice. And choices have consequences and effects. To confidently say no is not rejection. To say no in defense against choosing is problematic.YOU CANNOT UN-EXIST - Death may come to be a prominent issue for many of our students to process in these days and months ahead. We will talk more about this in our live chats with you, but it can be helpful to remember that death is not meant to eclipse a life. It is a part of life. There is little difference between life and death for either the Personality or Essence except in that whichever one is “in” tends to get the priority of importance. When you are “dead” it is exciting to process a life and plan a dive back into life. When you are alive, it is exciting to consider your immortality and your extra-dimensional selves. Death and Life are two sides of EXISTENCE. You exist. You cannot un-exist. No one you know can un-exist. You will continue to love, and find even more ways and whys to love. Letting people live is to let them exist, and letting people die is to let them exist. This understanding will not replace grief, but it can be a part of the healing that returns you to focus on life when death visits around you.
  14. 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)
  15. ENERGY REPORT November 2013 2013 OVERLEAVES ROLE: SAGE (emphasized all year) CENTER: INTELLECTUAL (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW > acceptance/discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: POWER (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: IDEALIST (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: SELF-DESTRUCTION (emphasized Oct - Dec) NOVEMBER continues through the collective exploration of Self-Destruction. When a Chief Negative Feature is secured, either in the individual or collectively, it tends to go into a quiet, rather dormant state that can often appear as if it has been relieved. In the same way that the Chief Negative Feature is generated as a form of protection, it also generates protection for itself. In other words, it moves into an insidious state. This is how a Chief Negative Feature remains a part of a person or a society for many years without any awareness or effort made to transform it. This is where/how Self-destruction has gone, collectively. November may seem to have a rather quiet lull in the effects of the Self-destruction on a more collective level, but these may be moving toward extremes that would only become more obvious, later, or when provoked as defense. So the Positive and Negative Poles are being exemplified in slow extremes of divide between Sacrifice and Suicide, played out in various ways among groups of fragments. A good example can be found in the United States’ political system as Democrats exemplify Sacrifice, and Republicans exemplify Suicide. We remind you that Self-destruction is the fear of worthlessness, so to protect against this Sacrifice will be used as a way to presume the earning of worth at one’s own expense, while the use of Suicide (figuratively or literally) is the permanent removal of self from the equation of worth in hopes that the absence provides enough contrast to prove there was worth. When the use of the Chief Feature moves into its more insidious state, it begins to fracture into more pointed, contained, and specific outbursts, or spread into broad, “slow-burning” effects within different areas of the life. So when we are speaking of the Chief Feature on a collective level as it moves into a more insidious state, it can begin to show up on individual levels that contribute to these outbursts or slow-burning effects that can affect communities that then affect the larger scale. This means there may come to be some outbursts of individuals over November that help to reveal the trajectory of Suicide for some institutions or groups, while there may come to eventually be revealed Sacrifices that were made by individuals for other institutions or groups to sustain their worth. In addition to this, there may come to be a rise in more literal Sacrifices, such as “heroic” rescues, and Suicides over the next couple of months as the Chief Feature is utilized. For most of our students, the more extreme use of this collective Chief Feature is not of interest, but the effects of this use in the world around them may still have its impact. This might show up as enforced apathy, deliberate denial, an imbalance of emphasis on “only the positive,” and general fragility for “dealing with the world.” This could lead to some retraction, isolation, and a quiet, somber move into hiding that just hopes that things will either get better on their own, or that struggles around you will go away. For some, this fragility and denial can begin to creep into relationships, pursuits, and philosophies, affecting the Mode, Goal, and/or Attitude, respectively. It may not be extreme, but it can be insidious and still have an impact. If you find that you are in a wave of fragility and denial that is affecting your outlook, your relationships, and your intentions, you may very well have found that the collective Chief Feature is creeping into your own methods of defense. On an individual level, this is most likely a defense against “the future.” Self-destruction brings with it a heightened sensitivity to mortality in everyone and everything, often bringing with it a confusing sense of what it is “all worth.” Why try so hard? What does it matter? What does any of this matter? What do I matter? What difference does my opinion or feelings make in the larger scheme of things, let alone in my own life? These are the thoughts and feelings generated as defense against the question of worth. This is Self-destruction. This is not to say these questions are not valid, but that they do not have answers that can be satisfied without LIVING. And we use the term “living” in the broadest sense that includes enthusiasm, joy, play, participation, effort, etc. The irony in answers to such questions of worth is that they cannot be answered by simply asking them and then sitting with them, or brooding with them, or hiding with them. They must be answered by your living, and only then can you learn that your worth is something that cannot be measured by anything other than exactly the ingredients of all that it means to LIVE. The further irony is that one cannot avoid living. Whether in a body or not, one is alive. To live means to experience, and experience does not stop. Ever. The questions of one’s worth, one’s value, one’s meaning, the difference one makes, or how one might matter, are not existential or rhetorical questions. These questions are not meant to defeat you. They are symptoms of waking up, gaining consciousness, and recognizing that you do matter, make a difference, and are valuable. There is no actual question of value, difference, or matter, but only a question of where and how you are implementing this in your life. If these questions emerge, you may simply be questioning how better to participate, play, and make more effort. Lack of participation, play, and effort does not make you less worthy, meaningful, or ineffective; it only means it makes it more difficult to see or feel. Helpful thoughts over NOVEMBER might be: LIVE TO BE ALIVE If you find you are questioning your worth, let it be an invitation to participate, to make the effort, to allow enthusiasm, and be alive. This does not always feel good. It does not always feel bad. It does not always feel flat and inert. Life is undulating, ebbing, and flowing, and only you can nurture or suppress this. You cannot stop it, but you can suppress it, and the more this is suppressed, ignored, or diminished, the more likely your value, worth, and meaning are difficult to see. Imagine a mind full of ideas for writing, but that are never written. Imagine a heart full of loving that refuses to love the self. Imagine a choreography of dance that is only drawn up on paper. The ideas, the love, and choreography may be formless, but they are still meaningful, valuable, and worthy; they are simply less-likely to be recognized, seen, or felt without form. An aside: This is why the Chief Feature of Self-destruction is an Expressive Chief Feature. It is protection from lack of form, or protection from a form that is rejected. Giving life, or form, to you, your ideas, your love, your choreography, is often all it takes to begin the transformation away from fear. The use of the Positive or Negative Poles of Self-destruction are ways to force or impose a form, or destroy the possibility of form, altogether. DATES OF INTEREST November 09 - 11 -- NEXUS - Convergence - this appears to be a reunion of parallel lines that have ended, or that have ended for others of significance. This may bring dreams of loved ones who have passed away, people from the past, animal companions who have died, or vague, strange variations on your life and experiences that are, literally, coming from parallels where you have died.
  16. Michael Speaks LIVE CHAT Dec, 2010 2010 Review and 2011 OVERLEAVES MEntity: A request for a review of December and of 2010 in general has been made for starting, so we will cover that, first, and then respond to questions before going into 2011. As many of you already understand, the Overleaves that we use to describe a year do not describe energies that are being imposed upon a frame of time, but rather a description of the energies being generated collectively during that frame of time. The same could be said of your own Overleaves: your own overleaves are descriptions of genetic dynamics that have a spectrum of manifestations that are described by the Overleaves. You are not "confined" by those Overleaves any more than you are "confined" by the fact that you are Human, for instance. In other words, Overleaves for a year, or for a person, describe patterns that are generated from within the structure, but how those patterns are used, directed, rejected, exploited, etc, are still rather limitless. When it comes to our describing the energies for a time frame (a year), it is much like sharing with you the type of weather that is "outside," and how you respond to that, participate in that, ignore t, etc. is up to you. If you choose to participate in any way in your world, then these Overleaves would have some potential bearing on your awareness, and can help in many ways to bring understanding, peace, greater choices, and better navigation. The Overleaves for 2010, in general, were described as an Emotionally-Centered SAGE Year with a Goal of Dominance, Power Mode, Spiritualist Attitude, with the Chief Features of Arrogance/Self-deprecation being explored. As each Overleaf tends to correspond to a "season," the Chief Features tend to become amplified for exploration in the months from October through December. Chief Features are technically NOT Overleaves, but we include them under the general term for convenience. There are several ways that we can share our perception of the Overleaves and how these play out in the world for a time frame, but for simplicity and relevance, we will try to focus, in general, for our Students and older souls. In light of that, it would be fair to say that December has "not been easy" for our students, nor the older soul, in general. The past year was one that was intended to bring great overhaul of certain patterns that each student felt was limiting and in need of altering. The retrospect of the past year has been disappointing to many. In addition to that disappointment, it appears that the year seems to have had more of a command and demand upon the individual than the individual had upon the year. Add to that the feeling that the new year is impending, there might even be a sense of chaos or electrical static in the consciousness, which may be played out in the environment as well. We have already shared insight in previous monthly reports about the pitfalls of COMPARISONS, which are hallmarks of Arrogance and Self-deprecation, but we will remind you here that it is still a tactic that one would want to keep in check, if one chooses to see the life more clearly. Because the year was a mix of Dominance, Power, and Spiritualism, there was a great sense of possibility in the intent for taking leadership of the life through Power, or Presence. What we have seen most of our students doing is aiming high, but landing low. For some, this will feel as if what was intended was not fully accomplished, and is therefore disappointing. However, it is fairly important to keep in mind that the very mix of this past year's energy describes a natural tendency to see all of the possibilities, which means it would be difficult NOT to aim high. In looking back at the year, we know of very few students who did not actually implement a pivotal, important, and altering pattern that was directly in line with these higher intentions. The problem for some is that it has not been revealed exactly how that pivotal pattern is tied into the higher aims, and so as the year passes into another, it feels as if the intentions may have been lost, but we doubt that they have been. What we would suggest for each of you to do before the end of your year is to look back over your year and notice one to three pivotal events, people, relationships, choices, etc, that have come to now be a part of your life. However unrelated these pivotal things may be, they are tied directly to your original, higher aims. If you are unclear as to what your higher aims may have been, it can be easy to assess what they were/are by looking at what you wish had happened in 2010 that did not happen, or did not happen in a way you had wished. Understanding that the pivotal things that have happened in your year are tied to higher aims, may shed light in what you could be getting from those pivotal patterns that you may otherwise miss. December brings with it an opportunity to SEE YOURSELF. Arrogance fears being seen too closely, while Self-deprecation fears not being seen clearly enough, or being misunderstood. If you have dismissed the past year as a "bad year," you have probably fallen into the pattern of Arrogance. If you are looking forward to the next year as making up for this past year, or as a new context through which you will try again to prove yourself, you are probably exploring the Self-deprecation energies. Of course, many of you will relate to both. Your opportunity now is to see yourself beyond your judgments and disappointment. Truly SEE YOURSELF. Let yourself be okay with what you experienced. To be okay with a gentle recalibration for the new year as a part of life, not a means to make up for failures. This also applies to others in your life. It is an opportunity to see others more clearly, to see beyond their disappointing you, failing you, and to see beyond your judgments of them. This includes those who have died. Death can often leave those remaining extant to experience a kind of resentment, anger, and disorientation that then fuels Arrogance and Self-deprecation. It is okay that these fragments have exited, even if one does not understand why, or how, and that none of it makes sense. December's Arrogance and Self-deprecation, then, are opportunities to rise beyond all speculation, prejudices, and imposed perceptions to see to the truth, the love, and the beauty/energy of the self, the life, and others We will open the queue now for questions that may be relevant to the past year in terms of the Overleaves and how world events may have been a reflection of them. *****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN************ [Bobby2] Where has Julian Assange and Wikileaks played in these overleaves? MEntity: This could be said to have nearly epitomized the year's Overleaves in that it was all about the exploration of Sage, Dominance, Power, Spiritualist, and Arrogance. With an intense push for Dissemination, the Sage energy is present, along with the emphasis on taking control through taking the Lead against Dictatorship, regaining Power through Authority over Oppression, and removing fear through the Spiritualist's Verification, rather than Beliefs. Of course, this prompted Arrogance in the fearful reactions to the Vulnerability that this presented to those who have been representing Negative Pole positions of these Overleaves. Those who felt vulnerable then pushed for that vulnerability to be emphasized so as to bring that same fear out in others. In short, the "wikileaks" scenario is one of the planet's "pivotal events" of 2010 that will have lasting patterns that would bring about changes that most on the planet prefer in the long run. It also played out in the world stage a representation of the year's overleaves, almost characterized as one side playing the Negative Poles, and the other playing out the Positive Poles. [ValSage_Priest] What then can the living do to ease their passing of a loved one, removing themselves from the resentment, anger, disorientation that fuels Arrogance and Self Dep? Thank You, So nice to feel/resonate with all of you again, Val MEntity: Each fragment will have his or her own process for grieving, and we do not mean to imply that this process should not include resentment, anger, disorientation. We also know that it would be absurd to imply that it ever gets "easier." That being said, the process can be clarified (stripped of unnecessarily painful aspects) by focusing directly on the GRIEF, not the RELIEF. By this we mean that most who experience prolonged pain do so, ironically, by struggling desperately to understand WHY as a form of relief. There is a sense that if it just made sense, or could be explained, or if there were a reason, then the pain would be lifted and replaced with a peace, or at least an understanding. Grieving is the process of accepting a profound Truth. That Truth is usually that someone or something is no longer present in a way that you wish that it would have remained. Accepting that something or someone is no longer present is difficult enough without imposing the WHY of that apparent loss or division. Mourn that loss, that change, that death. Allow the Grief to come, even if in wails or brooding silence. Therein lies the path to relief. But to focus only on Relief can bypass the Grief, and prolong the pain. The understanding and the truths about the experience will come. But never before the grieving is completed. [Jon2] I have been feeling like I am "on the cusp" of achieving the things I want for a while now, and making definite progress, but not quite getting there. I have seen a lot of friends in a similar situation, having made definite progress without reaching their goals. You said that we were "aiming high", does that mean that our goals are unreachable or invalid? MEntity: When we said that we see our students "aiming high," we might also have said "aiming wide." What we meant was that a broad net has been cast, so to speak, and that net is going to reel in some catches that are entirely relevant to the "big catch" you may be seeking. To ignore what has been brought in so far, or to ignore the changes and achievements of the past year, out of disappointment for not landing the big catch, would be similar to throwing yourself off the boat, or "cutting of your nose to spite your face." Your "cusp" is not idealized or imagined. Most of our students who intended to make a change and do something different for their lives in 2010 are in that same stage. Though it is your choice, we would say that to keep moving toward your intention would be Good Work. [Jon2] That is how I feel too, but it is nice to hear someone else say it [corinne] 2010 has been a year of huge upheaval and transition in my life with many positive new courses set and indeed nothing really achieved or finished yet. Could you give some guidelines to us in how we single out these pivotal events in the past year that will better lead us to achieving our "high/wide aims"? MEntity: For the most part, we see those in your similar position as having ADDED something to the life in some way in the past year that is indicative of the pivotal. Added a relationship, a project, a new address, etc. Though we would not limit it to this, we would say that a fairly accurate assessment would include looking back to see what is NEW in the life that either still remains now, or at least the repercussions of it remain. At least one to three major NEW things, people, relationships, projects, etc have been added and have altered your patterns toward the higher/wider aims. ******QUEUE CLOSED******* Now we will share what we perceive as the 2011 Overleaves. The underlying energies for the year are described by the ROLE and CENTERING. These would remain in effect all year. The rest of the energies are in effect all year, as well, but tend to build upon one another as the year unfolds. The year unfolds from the Goal, to the Mode, to the Attitude, to the Chief Negative Features almost parallel to "seasons." Because the Goal starts off strong in January through March, the Role, Centering, and Goal tend to set the tone for the year. 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST CENTER: MOVING GOAL: FLOW MODE: CAUTION ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom For most of our students, the most important thing that would come from understanding this mix of energies is that it would do you well to start out your year as clear as possible in terms of intent for the year. The year ahead could be said to potentially feel as if one is on ice skates on a block of ice on a choppy ocean. For some of our more adventurous students, this "is going to be fun." But for many, it will mean either sitting down and holding on, working together in tight groups, or at least focusing exactly on the direction intended to go so that "looking down" does not distract from the path. With the Priest energy unfolding, we would say that the year would carry with it strong themes that display the spectrum between COMPASSION and ZEAL. The struggle for continued extension and placement of RIGHTS in various contexts will probably stay in the collective consciousness, with those who are for these Rights playing out Compassion, while those who refuse those Rights playing out Zeal. With the spectrum between Compassion and Zeal playing out, we would think that POLITICS will stay front and center in the media as reflective of the continued shift from the Young paradigm to the Mature Paradigm. This is because the political arena is quite effective in reflecting the mass psyche of a time or place. Politics have been the stomping ground of the Young Souls in the same way that Religion has been the stomping ground of the Baby Souls, but with the aging Essences dominating your world, these institutions are not being replaced, but rather repopulated. The Mature and Old are finding their way into Politics as more and more Mature Souls push for valid representation and uncovering of corruption. Because Mature Souls do not subject themselves to segregation, despite longing for like-mindedness, they are populating nearly every institution that was usually held in control by a specific Soul Age. Religions, then, are seeing the effects of this, as well. We bring in Religion in particular because it has long ago become simply another form of politics. In the year ahead, we would think that this institution is also brought into the collective consciousness as either collapsing into Zeal, or evolving into Compassion along with the context of RIGHTS. The Moving Center of a year usually shows up as a sense of constant movement, with many actually experiencing relocation in those years, and often large quantities of fragments exiting in Physical Plane events. These things are not easy to validate in terms of our Overleaves for the year because these things happen "all the time," but we can say that in Moving Centered years, there is usually an element of emphasis and profundity about these events that other years tend not to have. With the Goal of Flow opening a Moving-centered Priest year, as we alluded before, AIM OF VISION is probably the most important key phrase to remember. With an AIM OF VISION, then the pattern may tend toward everything falling into place in a way that cascades toward that vision. Because of the nature of Flow, it would mean that the challenge is to trust in that flow, rather than to control it or fight it. It would mean adapting to the cascade effect, recalibrating quickly, rather than being preoccupied with correction. When we say AIM OF VISION, it only means that you decide what ONE THING you wish to do, experience, see, complete, accomplish, etc. in 2011 and then let that be the aim. Everything else is presumed to be a part of that aim. For instance, even if "going to work" conflicts with your more creative endeavors, it would be presumed that your going to work is PART of what can be contributing to your creative endeavors. To become preoccupied with "if only," might bring about the difficulties. Such as "if only I didn't have to work so much, I could do my creative projects." With the Goal of Flow for the year, it brings with it the spectrum between FREEDOM and INERTIA. As the year opens up into January through March, for those who have that clarity of aim, the year may start out feeling quite free, light, and almost as if you now may catch your breath, and breathe. For those who are not so sure, still preoccupied with corrections, comparisons, or disappointments, the year might move into a state of INERTIA, feeling as if you are running in place, or moving with a momentum but with no sense of direction. To clarify your AIM OF VISION will not mean that you are choosing only one thing to accomplish in the year, but that you are simply choosing one emphasis that will help you to keep your footing. In other words, choose that one thing that, if reached, you know would be a "good thing" for you. Choosing that one thing to aim for will not sacrifice any others in any significant way. An analogy: When a student receives or deciphers his or her Overleaves, it will never truly matter if those Overleaves are 100% "correct" if the aim of that student is to aim for the Positive Poles. This is not to say that there are not correct overleaves, but that it is the aim that makes the difference, not the words. If a Sage thinks he is a Warrior and aims for Persuasion instead of Dissemination, the mere act of aiming for his idea of a positive pole warrior will make him a positive pole sage. And so it is with your aim in the year ahead: Aiming for anything that is significant and important to you will naturally align all of the things that are significant and important to you. The reason we suggest this idea of Aim of Vision is because it is also in alignment with the energies of Priest, and this means a natural kind of support for that aim is in place. The cliche of the "vision board" would not be amiss in exploring, either. In our monthly Energy Reports, we can more specifically speak to how these Overleaves are showing up in your world, but for now, we can say that the main arenas of 2011 would most likely be Politics, Religion, and Weather/Climate. We will open the floor for comments/questions for the remainder of the hour. Though we have more to say on the interpretation of the overleaves for the year, we can do so as the year unfolds. ******QUEUE IS NOW OPEN****** [TimW] Are there any specific positive affirmations that we would most benefit from in the coming year? MEntity: If one is to use "positive affirmations," we would suggest that they be customized to your Aim of Vision. For instance, if one is aiming to complete a novel, but one is stuck at work, distracted by a relationship, etc., then one could affirm, "Even in this, I am contributing to the completion of my novel." This kind of reminder might help one to see the point of these so-called "distractions." One must eat and have shelter and the tools for writing, so going to work is actually a contribution to the novel; and being responsible to another, compassionate, nurturing, understanding, etc are food for the emotions and intellect that can be used to fuel the writing. A "generic" affirmation might be: "Everything I DO is contributing to my Aim." [Mstudent_23] What is the PART of the Moving CENTER for 2011? MEntity: The PART fluctuates, but the pattern emerging appears to be Emotional, lending the year a rather reactionary element to it with knee-jerking, volatility, and difficulty communicating past feelings. [Bobby2] Other than your summary, you really didn't mention weather/climate much... care to elaborate a bit more there? MEntity: In a Higher Centered year, or a Moving Centered year, there tend to be greater emphasis on the Physical Plane patterns of weather as reflective of the collective consciousness. In Higher Centered years, the impact is usually global, and often with more than one event, such as the Higher-Emotional year of 2005 that was rung in by the Indian Ocean Tsunami and exited with Hurricane Katrina. In Moving Centered years, the weather and climate still tend to get emphasized and intense, but peppered throughout the Physical Plane in highly-localized ways. What we see over 2011 is a collage of events that some will take and use as support for the "2012" theories. Major droughts "here," raging fires "there," freak blizzards "here," torrential rains "there," devastating earthquakes, etc. Those who fear and crave the "prophecies" related to 2012 will find most of their fodder in the weather of 2011. The weather and climate is still greatly misunderstood and carries with it the collective instinctual fear and awe of that "something greater" that can be tangibly imposed upon the masses. Therefore, it can still be hijacked as a reference of "proof" of things to come. [Brian_W] would this be related to the mass-exit to stage left that Michael said that large number of fragments would be undertaking? MEntity: Weather appears to be moving in a direction that would be experienced as undoubtedly more volatile and unpredictable due to many factors unrelated to any "dimensional shift," but related to a natural cycle that the Earth has sustained over and over. In a Moving-Centered year, the effects tend to be much more obvious and tangible, and this is why we say that Weather is one of the main characters of 2011, but also because there will be those eager to showcase it as evidence of ominous things to come. [Geraldine] Of course having a population explosion that will reach 7 billion people this year will have nothing to do with the size and range of any disaster -- i.e., a hurricane that might have affected 100 people will now affect 100 million. MEntity: That is correct, Geraldine. Many natural disasters are not worse in terms of intensity, but that there are simply more things and people in the line of them. In response to Astarte: no, not much would be different except the awareness and emphasis on these events. [Kathryn41] are earthquakes and volcanic eruptions included in what you refer to as 'weather'? They are really geological events but can have impact on the weather. MEntity: Yes, Kathryn. [Angela] Earlier you mentioned overleaves being a description of genetic DYNAMICS, can you explain more about these dynamics and their influences? MEntity: All Overleaves are genetic, in that they can be found in the DNA of every individual, and this is what springs forth in creating the Body and Personality. There is more "nature" to a person than "nurture," in other words, even though there is a mix, and the choices of the individual can affect how either are emphasized. If one were to use our system alongside the study of genetic markers, there would be a time when Overleaves can literally be found in the DNA of an individual. Personality structures are rooted and blueprinted in genetics, but built from the experiences of the life. [Angela] could ALL overleaves be encoded in an individual's DNA? or only the ones specific to that person MEntity: In the same way that a Body is predesigned to a great degree, but experiences such as food, climate, activities can alter that design, so are Personalities born and raised. The entire set of Overleaves could be found in every individual, but only certain markers to activate code combinations. We are speaking through a non-medical channel, so our terminology is limited. [Kathryn41] so this is how a walk-in can essentially 're-wire' the genetic markers over time to reflect the new overleaves - makes sense MEntity: Those Overleaves that are not the individual's would be dormant, and are rarely activated in replacement of others. When there is an alteration of the active overleaves, it is usually limited to the axis. For instance, a "walk in" might activate Growth over Re-evaluation, etc. [Angela] can beliefs be used to activate these code combinations? MEntity: The alteration of one's DNA by beliefs is about as easy as concentrating hard to change your hair color, or skin color. One can always mask or alter those things, but cannot truly change them. We will conclude here. We will continue to elaborate upon the Overleaves for the year as the year unfolds. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  17. ENERGY REPORT AUGUST 2012 August continues the emphasis on Potential and Possibility, but with more active participation than in the previous month of July. This active participation is supported and manifested through actions, choices, follow-through, and enthusiasm for what has been deemed possible and potential. Though the possibilities and potential for a person, relationship, or situation can be endless, it is through choice and action that these possibilities and potential are given form from the inherent formlessness of potential. If one does not actively choose or actively make efforts regarding their potential, it simply remains potential. Over August, our students may find a theme of exploring how their actions and choices directly evolve, manifest, and emphasize certain forms over other forms from the possibilities and potential that are both consciously identified and subconsciously missed. It may seem that the consciously identified possibilities and potential would be preferable, but that is not always the case. Often, there is a permission built in to periods of time where so much is being explored, and one will find that many of the consciously preferred possibilities seem to be usurped by subconscious paths that come to the surface. This is not to replace the conscious and preferred paths, but to help bring more of a spectrum of choice to the experience. The more conscious one aims to be, the more subconscious patterns will rise to the surface for exposure. This can be exasperating as pattern after pattern unfolds that seems to speak to a part of you that you do not understand or connect with in terms of those possibilities and potential, but when you find yourself divided within yourself about one direction, possibility, or potential over another, there is ALWAYS information in the one that takes the center stage of your focus. That information found in those subconscious patterns tends to be about areas that may need nurturing, patience, rest, consideration, healing, embrace, etc. They are not patterns that unfold simply to undermine or distract, but to either help strengthen an infrastructure for your preferred possibilities and potential by healing an “Achilles Heel,” or by helping point out alternatives that may have been missed. If one tends to find one’s preferred possibilities and potential out of reach because of repeated distractions with these subconscious patterns, it may help for one to know that once these are revealed, they are no longer subconscious. This means they no longer have any validity of power beyond your capacity for choice and action. In short, August appears to be a pattern of exploration of Empowerment through Choice and Action. In other words, what you choose to DO makes a difference, no matter what the scale, and where you focus your attention, makes a difference. Truly comprehending this can be profound. Helpful thoughts over AUGUST might be: MY PROGRAMMING IS MY PROGRAMMING The extent and depths of one’s spectrum of consciousness is vast. Relative to the Personality, this includes Conscious, Subconscious, and Unconscious realms. The Subconsciousness is simply that level where intellect, emotion, and action go for automation. When something is automated, it is simply processed beyond your focus of awareness. It is not a bad thing, nor is it a programming that cannot be overridden. Even the act of breathing, which is as automated as automation can get, can be stopped by the individual, if he or she so chooses to do so. Everything else is even easier to bring into focus for alteration. Dreaming, Concentration, Study, Creativity, Meditation, Possibilities, Potential, etc. are all Subconscious processes that can be moved to Conscious processes, but not all of them are necessary for bringing into the Consciousness. If breathing depended only upon Conscious choice, many would “forget” to breathe, and die very quickly. It is the same with Dreaming, Meditation, Concentration, etc. These have very important levels that work much better in the Subconscious realm of automation. However, the Conscious realm allows one to heal, tweak, transform, employ, and install those automated processes of the Subconscious. This is done through choice and action. If one simply leaves the Subconscious alone, then it is similar to never updating your software, your operating system, your infrastructure. Eventually, old programming does not match new experiences, and new experiences cannot be supported by old infrastructures. This is why there are built in Reviews (often coinciding Astrologically with Saturn Returns) within a lifetime, but one does not have to wait for Review to update the Subconscious. It is always helpful to pay attention to your breathing habits, meditation habits, dreaming, what you concentrate on, what you tend to study, your creative habits, can help one to continue strengthening the infrastructure and “operating system” of Consciousness so that the life is built from, and upon, strong foundations, instead of shaky uncertainties. The Subconscious handles all automation, so this is vital for the freeing of Consciousness. It will never be the aim to bring only Consciousness to yourself, your life, relationships, etc. but to allow for the spectrum of your Consciousness. However, lifting your Subconscious ingredients into the light of Consciousness for examination can bring profound effects upon your capacity for choice, and therefore, your capacity for giving form to the spectrum of possibilities and potential of your life. No one is “programmed” beyond his or her capacity to change it, if he or she so chooses to do so, but it does take choice, effort, and consciousness to do so. So everyone's "programming," ultimately, is their own. DATES OF INTEREST AUGUST 1st - 3rd- Moving Centers may get amped up over those days, and remain on high momentum until the 12th, bringing some a heightened sense of awareness, while bringing others a heightened sense of agitation and restlessness. AUGUST 19th- Potential, approximate date for a global phenomenon that is of interest, with symbolic indications for “the future” of exploration. This is not a prediction, but one of many dates that may bring this into manifestation, as it is being generated collectively. AUGUST 27th - 30th- A Divergence Nexus with an emphasis on Completions vs Initiations, and relative to the efforts made by those updating their Subconscious. Some versions of reality would branch off to help bring closure to efforts and projects and relationships that have no resonance to the updated sense of consciousness, while other realities might blossom with renewed, or new initiations toward enthusiastic goals and experiences.
  18. March 28, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the requested “Energy Report” for the weeks between March 30 and April 12, 2002. As most of you know, the energy throughout the year as the Overleaves describe it, shifts in emphasis as the “seasons” change. The entirety of the year could be said to have a context described by the Role for the year and the Centering, while the first 3 months tend to focus on the Goal, the following 3 months the Mode, the following 3 months the Attitude, and the year ending with the Chief Features. This means that “spring time” is, IN GENERAL (and not a rule), a time period with emphasis on relationships, intimacy, and the Mode. This year’s Mode is Passion, meaning that relationships in general will take on a more profound emphasis in the context of Self-actualizing or Identifying, the positive and negative poles of Passion respectively. During the next few weeks any important relationship that can possibly bring you lessons within the context of Intimacy will be drawn to you. Your reaction, regardless of your own Mode, will tend to AT LEAST have more of a passionate feel to them. This means you may either find yourself creating attachments and needs to those who are close to you, emphasizing THROUGH OTHERS what it is you most want or don’t want in yourself. OR, you may emphasize that these relationships are actually helping you to “actualize,” or manifest, the very things you most want, most consciously. The only difference, really, between Self-actualization and Identification, is in that the first allows you to bring out of yourself what you perceive, while the latter attaches a desired or undesired trait to someone else. This we say in the context of relationships, while Passion will mean other things within other contexts. Over the next two weeks we would suggest being open for a great amount of physical and astral interactions with many fragments known and not yet known in your life. We remind you that the Overleaves for a “year” are simply a description of parameters that the general collective consciousness is seeking to emphasize for a time period as a means to create, change, or update Community and World Truths. In that process, your own may be created, changed, or updated. We will comment, as well, that the past week was a Parallel Shift, with a focus on Converging. We will take questions now on the Energy Report, if there are any. If there are no questions, we will then move to the OPEN FLOOR Format for the night’s session. You may begin. [Val1] Can you tell us more about creating, changing our own truths? [M_Entity] In the context of this time frame, most of you will be looking at your own Personal Truths in relation to the average World Truths about WAR, Religion, and Community. There is a focus now on these very important Truths as they stand for those who are in more dangerous positions and how that may or may not affect you. As most of you know, there are Personal Truths, which are subject to change at any time, and they may or may not be anyone else’s Truth. There are Community Truths, which are shared beliefs, which contribute to World Truths. World Truths are true for everyone on a planet, whether they wish them to be Truths or not, such as Grass being Green, and Gravity. Depending on your Personal Truths, the World Truth that War still exists and affects the planet may or may not be a “good thing.” When enough Personal Truths shift, which then shift Community Truths, then World Truths can change as well. Even the Truth of Gravity can change, if its properties change as a World Truth. We believe the properties of War would be even easier to change. Many of you will be dealing with your thoughts, feelings, and actions as they relate to those issues of War, Religion, and Community. Your own Personal Truths may or may not be affected. [ShannonB] You have told us in the past, how new diseases will have to develop as we discover cures for existing ones. Today I read about a mysterious disease that has killed people in Europe: variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, similar to “mad cow” disease in bovines. Is this one of the diseases that we “needed” to thin our population, and what is causing it? [M_Entity] No disease is “needed,” though there will always be new ways for exiting the planet created as old ways are alleviated. That particular disease appears to be localized and not contagious or hereditary, though dietary-based in its origins. This disease has been around much longer, but not so specifically defined as now. As dietary intake continues to be more poisonous than nutritional, more effects will be seen. [ShannonB] Is it related to ingesting contaminated red meats? [M_Entity] We see a common denominator among these fragments ingesting consistent amounts of toxic flesh, yes. [LiSaC] I’d like some suggestions on what some options are that women have to be healthy during and after menopause. [M_Entity] If Menopause were treated as a passing life transition, it would be much easier to process. Menopause, and Menopause-Andropause in men, is a hormonal wash removing the base desire for procreation. It is practical biologically, but is also a profound opportunity for shifts psychologically or spiritually, as well. During this phase, which is usually linked to the 5th Internal Monad, biological relief can be found in what has come to be referred to as “wild yam” products. Estrogen replacements are risky, but worth it for some. Other than these basic remedies, only time can remedy the process. With the emphasis being on the 5th Internal Monad, the process will include a very profound look at what the life has accomplished by your own terms, and what you can now do to experience freedom within the frameworks and patterns that have been set. Although Menopause and Andropause are not limited to those experiencing the 5th Internal Monad, it is consistent enough to be considered. We do not have a quick remedy or suggestion for alleviating the stress of the process, but we do believe the more difficulties involved for an individual tend to be directly proportional to their personal belief that they have not “proven themselves” yet. We believe addressing the wonders of the life that have been experienced, rather than the want for something undefined, vague, and somehow more meaningful, the process can be freeing, rather than debilitating. Menopause/Andropause allows the psyche the opportunity to truly assess the life-to-date, and though much of it may be disappointing to the Personality, choosing to view the life from the eyes of your Essence can alleviate the strongest of discomforting symptoms. Your contributions to a life are far more amazing than may be possible to see from your position, but Essence knows. It can do wonders to ask family and friends for feedback and stories to convey any influences and meaning a person may have left in a life. [sam-nemo] In the original transcripts meditation, fasting and concentration were mentioned several times, it seems the last two are no longer being emphasized, why? [M_Entity] We remind you that we are always filtered through our channels and their own personal agendas at the time, however synchronistically or not that may be. We also remind you that we are speaking to different groups than we were in our early days before publication. Fasting and Concentration were concepts carried over from those studying other teachings at the time. For some, a more severe or radical change in daily practice helps the individual create changes they may want. For others, gradual practice is as acceptable. [sam-nemo] So meditation is the most beneficial to the most people? [M_Entity] No, it is not that meditation is most beneficial, but it is the most acceptable and most easily applied by most of our students and channels. Most are willing to find some means to relax, but would find it difficult to go without food for a few days. We can, however, say that many of you would benefit more than can possibly be assumed if a proper fasting were implemented. The same can be said of Concentration. Fasting, Meditation, and Concentration are all linked to the Centers, Moving, Emotional, and Intellectual, respectively. Finding techniques in any one of these can help balance all the Centers. [MaryBV] I am feeling some very familiar, yet new energy in the room tonight. Can you tell me anything about this energy? Is there a group past life to be shared? [M_Entity] Of course there are past lives shared. There is no one present that does not share a past life with the entirety of the group here in some way. The Energy you feel is familiar because it IS. It is also “new” because new Personalities now house these familiar Essences or souls. It is a time of reunion for many of you. Watch your emails, listen for your phone, answer your doors. Many of your Cadre Mates are looking for comfort in numbers, as you are. [essencess] How can one shift the cellular memories and all that that brings up to a new truth of peace on this planet now… I mean memories of war. [M_Entity] Until all fragments on the planet have been touched on all levels in deeply important ways by war, then there will continue to be war. With the shift from Young to Mature Soul Consciousness on the planet, a great deal of Late Baby and Early Young are feeling anxious and in need for making their marks. They have not been touched emotionally by war, only intellectually or physically. We speak of these fragments in terms of their collective lifetimes, not this particular one. All Souls engage in war, willingly, at some point in the incarnational cycle for varying reasons and on varying levels and degrees. You may not be able to change the choices of those fragments wishing to participate in or create war, but you can personally make choices and decisions in ways that will alleviate the impact on you as much as possible. There is no way to “escape” the physical plane, but you will always have choices. With that being said, we believe CHOICE then is the best way to “shift cellular memories.” Many of you who have experienced what might be called atrocities of war, are now quite repulsed by the entire concept. Making conscious choices can change anything, even if only on a personal level. Within the context of War, we think taking time out to resonate harmony outward and to the planet is much more than a fantastical daydream; THIS DOES CONTRIBUTE. Closing yourselves off from the reality of the situation on the planet will not change anything. There is a war occurring on your planet and you are affected, whether only energetically or specifically. Decide to what degree you feel you can contribute to the emphasis of certain choices available and act on that. By this we mean, if you feel volunteering time in some way helps make the world a better place, and then do it. If you feel meditating and inviting harmony for all will help, then do it. Many of you have clever and appropriate and affecting ideas, but do not implement them. The physical plane requires Action; therefore, in some way, the body must be used to help bring change. We remind you that we do not have an investment in whether you participate or not, whether you care or not. We are merely responding to your question. We do not share this to tell you what to do, but rather to point out the discrepancies between wanting change and making change. Choice and Action will be your tools, whether relieving your cells or your local neighbor. [JNelson] If the entire world decided that gravity did not exist, would it cease to exist? [M_Entity] Yes. It really is that simple. But we doubt any Sentience will choose that route of destruction when there are more creative paths requiring less patience and time. What most will do when in want of overriding a World Truth, such as Gravity, are to find means to defy those Truths, such as flying, space travel, etc. This does not change the Truth, but it does change how you relate to the Truth. [JNelson] Have many such drastic changes happened in the past? [M_Entity] We have never seen a change in a World Truth on that scale. There are truly “root assumptions” hardwired into the fabric of a soul that allow the game to be played. We would call these Natural World Truths. On the other hand, Generated World Truths, such as War, do change. We will conclude here. Good night.
  19. 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.]
  20. Michael Speaks Live January 26, 2014 Elaboration of Overleaves for 2014 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We understand the subject to be that of an elaboration on the Overleaves that we described as representing 2014. February 2014 Energy Report What we will do is begin with the "Energy Report" for February before elaborating further. As January comes to a close, there appears to be a new burst of energy available for most of our students. This is a burst of enthusiasm, creativity, optimism, literal energy, and motivation. This is because the Goal has now come to focus as an emphasis, and the weight of the Chief Features of the previous year have lifted for most. The Goal of Growth is the Goal for this year, and this would bring with it an emphasis on challenging yourselves, and moving you in directions away from any stagnation that may have been in place in some way in the life. The Goal of Growth is all about the process of bringing/creating/generating MEANING from your experiences. This is why it can seem so challenging and stretches the individuals who have this as a Goal in the Personality. It impels one to look beyond the superficial nature of an experience, relationship, event, and the self and into the greater value and point of those things. We know that many associated Growth with physical activity and challenges, but that is only one form of Growth. Growth is NOT an Action Goal. It is an Inspiration Goal. It has never been about Action, but because experience is most often cultivated by participation in the world and with people, it tends to lean toward experiences that involve Action. However, it is about the value and meaning that one extracts from that. In a year when Growth is in place, our students will tend to feel as if these are years when there are leaps in evolution, the Positive Pole, if the work of extracting Meaning is nurtured, but it can also be a year when there is a great deal of Confusion, an overwhelming state of non-direction and non-meaning because there is too much being processed. So February would appear to be that tipping point, if you will, toward this dance between Evolution and Confusion, depending upon how much one has taken on for processing. The amount one has taken on for processing at the beginning of this year appears to be dependent upon on how much was resisted in the past 2 or 3 years. If one has been moving along for the past 2 or 3 years at a pace that is avoiding or evading a sense of evolution and progress, dismissing the need for processing experiences, then 2014 might start off with a sense of overwhelm and Confusion, a "tsunami" of backlogged processing to be addressed. If one has been moving along for the past 2 to 3 years at a pace that has allowed for value and meaning to be extracted from various experiences, relationships, etc. and has not avoided the processes necessary for the sense of evolving, then 2014 will probably launch into a strange and beautiful wave of highly-active Astral explorations and "jam-packed" dreaming. Even if those dreams are not remembered, there would tend to be a sense that the dream state was highly active. This emphasis in the Astral and dreaming is directly linked to the fact that because one has dealt fairly well with the Physical Plane and its processes, then the work of Growth is happening in the Emotional/Inspirational body. This is why many of you may then be feeling this lift, this relief, and revitalized sense of enthusiasm and playfulness as February comes. In addition to this, because the year is Centered in the Intellect, most will feel a comfort and enthusiasm for sharing what is happening in the Emotional body, in dreams, in the Astral, in their Evolution, and even in their experiences of Confusion. So as February unfolds, we suggest to our students to "hold on to your hat," and "enjoy the ride," as the month will likely feel as if it speeds up and has high potential for great laughs, exchanges of inspiration, sharing of experiences, and authentic joy, even for those in Confusion. Helpful Thoughts over February might be: YES. THIS IS MY LIFE. The emphasis in that phrasing can be moved around to bring about different effects. YES! This is my life. or Yes. THIS is my life. or Yes. This IS my life. or Yes. This is MY life. or Yes. This is my LIFE! The phrasing with the emphasis that is most inspiring and acting as a reminder that you are the one who owns this life, and that you are the one who manages it, and that you are the one who has the power of choice in it, and that you are the one with the capacity for problem solving, creativity, and for extracting joy, playfulness, and MEANING from it. ...is the phrasing that you can use to remind you that you are the creator and navigator of this life. We caution against using any phrasing with emphasis that feels as if it is mocking and evasive of your responsibilities for choice and processes. DATES OF INTEREST: February 12 - 15: NEXUS (convergence) - this appears to be a parallel shift that is an emphasis on growing closer to those with whom one has been tentative, or has fallen into tentativeness. Barriers and inhibitions would likely drop to help bring fragments closer, as they are in other parallels. February 25: Energy Shift - we think there may be something brought to public awareness regarding discovery or speculative discovery regarding off-planet material on or around this date. It is another contributing factor to the wave of enthusiasm and inspiration wave. Overview of 2014 Now, in terms of an overview of the year ahead: We think most will remember 2014 as a "Good Year," as there is such a wave of Inspiration unfolding from several directions and among even the Young and Mature in Soul Age. Cooperation and breakthroughs regarding misunderstandings in politics and religion may even be prominently surprising. This is not to say that there will not be challenges, but that there would tend to be some breakthroughs that begin a trend of uniting factions as opposed to the path that has been so divisive. The factions that insist on remaining more insular and isolated would likely find themselves falling to states of implosion by the end of the year, or have lashed out in such a way that it actually secures a greater determination for others to unite. With Priest, Growth, and Passion manifesting within the year in ways that appear, so far, to be leaning toward the Positive Poles, a sense that this is a pivotal year toward "something better" might begin to cautiously be embraced. The Realism of the year would tend to help curb the more delusional or distracting elements that might otherwise eclipse the sense of Inspiration, Compassion, Evolution, and Self-Actualization. That Realism would allow for one to step back enough to know that delusional distractions are not the equivalent of an obligation for addressing. One can allow room for those with delusional distractions, and still stand in compassion. Because so much would likely be felt as having been experienced, processed, and integrated over 2014, it is likely that the Impatience of the end of the year would be either lifted entirely, or replaced. The most significant events of 2014 would likely be in terms of those factions that refuse to move forward with progress and process of the planet lashing out and displaying what we see as the middle stages of their "dying gasps." Two significant weather-related events, primarily involving surprisingly destructive and sustained winds, would appear to be a focus for a large portion of the population. A "celebrity" murder looks to be coming around as a focal point, as well. Surprising transformations in immigration laws and in legalization of marijuana appear to make great strides in the year ahead, as well. For the United States. We can share these highlights with you because they appear to be linked to Nexus throughout the year ahead, and while these still have a great likelihood of changing, these are fairly secure enough in their link to the current momentum that we can, at least, mention them. We will open the floor now for questions regarding the topic: ****** QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ****** [ViP] I have the same Role, Goal, and Mode as the respective collective energies for this year. How would this affect (if at all) how I experience the year and those parts of it with Goal and Mode in focus? MEntity: When a year is aligned with one's Overleaves to a great degree, or to one's Role, the year tends to go in one of two distinct directions: extreme challenge, or extreme progression. These are probably fair to say are the same things in the end, but the more challenging side would tend to come for those who have work to do regarding embracing more of their own power, choices, actions, etc. It is difficult to hide from who and how one is in a year that is emphasizing one's very nature overall. If those challenges are seen as beneficial, then there is the progression. Progression is a sense of relief and movement forward in the life in a way that seems almost pre-planned and guided from levels of the self that are not as tangible as your every day self. A progressive year is a matter of listening to oneself, to following impulses and pleasures and being honest. The sense of struggle, in terms of "challenge" is only felt if the focus from the self is on continuing to hide from who and how one is. The sense of progress, then, in terms of "progression," is felt when one builds on who and how one is. [brian] You mentioned that 2014 might start off like a tsunami. Will there be any more waves of destruction, or how might you recommend getting back on the board and surfing the next one? MEntity: First, we would suggest for those who have experienced this break of resistance against avoidance and evasion to be one of CONSTRUCTION, not DESTRUCTION. It is a clearing away of debris that may be the equivalent of hoarding, or at least the debris as a by-product of hiding. Looking at the chaos of the breakthrough as constructive would help one to tap into the inspiration and creative problem solving that is necessary for infusing the experience with meaning that is useful and helpful, rather than as degrading and undermining. THAT is your "surfboard," then: the optimism of possibility even from among the debris, and even in the midst of cleaning up that debris. Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. It is quite difficult to build from within Chaos, and to build patterns, if one resigns from the responsibility of Growth, or put another way, resigns from the responsibility of creating and bringing value and meaning to an experience. We cannot say if there will be other breakthroughs for those who are starting the year with them. We doubt there will be. We think most prefer to work with the one that is enough. [Oscar] hey Michael Could you share any possible 2014 highlights for the Netherlands? MEntity: The Netherlands is often quite stable in its participation in the world, in terms of how collective energy manifests. That population is slow to bring great changes or challenges, with most of that being done "privately" and from within smaller groupings. We think most of the 2014 would appear to be fairly uneventful in terms of challenges, but we think there are several high-profile celebrations in store. There are a couple of Dutch Directors whose names may gain some more international attention in 2014, and a controversial artist who looks to bring up some debate within the local population. There appears to be a development project that is also under scrutiny and would lean toward either being dismantled or being altered to appease the public. We also see a breakthrough in scientific experimentation that comes from that area, and would fall into the category of "exciting." We cannot tell what it is, but it is of international consideration. The infrastructure regarding flooding is at a breaking point as 2014 passes, and this may come to be more relevant to the population as 2015 nears. We think these are bordering on predictions, so we will leave you with these higher probable events to note, though even those are not immune to alterations. [GeraldineB] Even though I think this was answered, I'd like to specifically ask: "What are the probabilities of having the Sochi Olympics either disrupted or halted due to violence? MEntity: We think the likelihood of disruption is high, at around 78% probability, with the likelihood of a halt being fairly low at 14%. There are, clearly, fragments who we can see are eager for this platform of expression for zealousness and confusion. They appear to be quite intent. If there is not the disruption due to violence, we would think there would be the disruption due to the intervention. We will conclude here for today. Good evening to all of you.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
