  1. This material originated with the March 2010 Michael Speaks. Special thanks to BrianW for posting his copy of the session or the content would have been lost. Although this session suggests that the missing content will be added, this has not yet been done. The roles covered in this session are those that were represented by session attendees. MEntity: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a discussion on the topic requested. Before doing so, we would like to point out that while it may seem to be the case, it is actually impossible to misrepresent, misunderstand, or misapply our teaching. When we say "impossible," we speak in relative terms that describe the fact of so many nuances and dynamics that go into representation, understanding, and applying our teaching. Our teaching cannot be misrepresented because it is either represented, or it is not. Beyond that, it cannot be misrepresented because if the student is not discerning and questioning beyond the representation, then he or she is not learning anyway. Our teaching cannot be misunderstood because this implies that there is a standard method and means for understanding. The only time this teaching is "misunderstood" is if one standard is held up against another. You will understand this teaching as you understand it. However, we will add to that statement that your understanding is never complete, and to presume that it is would be the end of learning. Our teaching cannot be misapplied, as again, this would imply a neat standard that describes how it "should" be applied. Even when our teaching is used as a platform for justifying behaviors, or to seek a sense of specialness, it is being applied on your terms, and those are the only terms we encourage. However, we would add to that statement that your terms are never fully understood, and to presume that your terms are static is to halt growth. When we say "halt growth" and "the end of learning," we mean these as temporary conditions of the Personality, and not permanent on any meaningful level for Essence. Though Troy's introduction was not intended to provoke this clarification from us, we do think it important to distinguish our channels' opinions from our own. That being said, there is validity to the fact that there is little recorded from us through our channels about the distinctions among the Roles in how they manifest through the Soul Ages, and we can address that today. We must point out, though, that anything we describe about any aspect of our teaching will, by necessity, be "generalized," as there is simply no way to describe ALL Old Sages, for instance. Numerous factors go into the manifestation of a Personality and Essence within a lifetime. Our Teachings can best be understood in both CONTEXTUAL and HOLISTIC terms. Contextual in that each phrase, term, or polarity is distinct within a specific context, and that context is an entity in itself, so to speak. Holistic in that this is a system that works dynamically, "organically," and when understood as a system, comes to life in a way that cannot be fully understood in its parts. For instance, if one were to be described or dismissed as being only a Kidney, it would not capture the full humanity of that individual, but to understand the functioning and purpose of the Kidney is vital on its own. Furthermore, lacking comprehension of the full humanity of that individual leaves one lacking understanding in how that particular Kidney actually functions for that particular person. We say all of this to you before delving into the topic at hand because what we will describe today, for the most part, is CONTEXTUAL. Within the time limits, we will cover Mature and Old Soul contexts for each Role, but will complete the subject with Troy so that Infant, Baby, and Young are included in exploring each Role. Each of the Roles through the Soul Ages could best be understood as manifesting more and more Essence through the Personalities that are created. Essence Manifestation can and does happen within all Soul Ages, but the degrees to which that manifestation occurs does grow. What we will describe today are what those degrees might look like for the Mature and Old Roles, in both positive and negative ways. Keep in mind that regardless of your technical Soul Age, you may be manifesting younger Soul Ages at various points within the life, or for the entire lifetime. For the most part, manifestation of various soul ages is proportional to the various contexts of your life, so that if you work within a Young Soul environment, you may call upon the Young Soul aspects of your Essence, and in Intimate circles, you may call on more of your actual Soul Age. "Manifesting Soul Age" is not static, and is not a description of limitations. It is simply a description of emphasis and resource for the lifetime, a relationship, a career, project, etc. What we describe today is a Role manifesting its actual Soul Age. Because of Personality, this may show up wildly different among that Roles "in the world," so what we describe may only be obvious to you privately. The progression through the Soul Ages for the Roles could be described as a progression of emphasis from DOING to HAVING to BEING. Infant and Baby emphasize DOING. Young emphasizes HAVING. Mature emphasizes the reconciliation between HAVING and BEING. And Old emphasizes BEING. Understanding this can help lend insights into the various Soul Ages and how the Roles manifest. Now we will walk through the Roles as they might be understood in Mature and Old Soul contexts. MATURE SERVERS Mature Servers tend to find themselves struggling with the reconciliation of Having Recognition, and Being Helpful. Over the course of the Young Soul Age, it finally occurs to the Server on a profound level that it is okay to be recognized, praised, rewarded, and that a reciprocating circuit of energy is vital to sustaining Service. Service is not a one-way circuit. One cannot serve where it is not received, and one cannot continue to serve without some form of exchange of nurturing at the very least. For many lifetimes previous to the Young Soul Age, this nurturing is either neglected until it cannot be any longer, or it is found in breaks between Serving. The Young Server then tends to use that entire Age to "catch up" on self-service to the extent that it can. In the Mature Age, then, the reconciliation begins between having that necessity of exchange in nurturing, and the core Being that seeks to serve in meaningful ways. Mature Servers, then, tend to be extremely busy, pulled in many directions, internally and externally, while they struggle with issues of utter availability and ineffective over-extension. The eventual reconciliation comes when the Mature Server only offers service when it can. OLD SERVERS The Old Server now emphasizes Being, and in this case, Being Helpful. At the very core of the Server is the design to HELP. (An aside: At first, all design in the early Soul Ages is manifested as compulsion as the default design is relied upon, but eventually becomes impulsion as the capacity for conscious choice grows.) Old Servers often do not "serve" at all in the capacity that one would think of as serving. The Mature Soul is ACTIVE. The Old Soul is PASSIVE. In this case, the Old Server "passively" Helps. The Old Server then begins to use exemplification as his or her means of offering Help. The entire life, self, and Being become the manifestation of Essence in that the Old Server WILL NOT allow himself or herself to suffer. If help can be gained from that by another, then the Old Server may extend upon that, but it has learned that suffering is a useless experience and will refuse to Help at the expense of self, but will unconditionally Help those who are willing to give up suffering. That may sound conditional, but it is not. It is simply a hard lesson learned that those who suffer most often choose not to be helped in any meaningful way. We define "suffer" here as that state of intellectual and emotional overwroughtness that leaves no room for solutions. Those who suffer in that way eventually learn that they are the only ones who can transform that experience, and all other influences are merely salves or addictions. The Old Server does not cater to that endless dynamic. MATURE ARTISANS The Mature Artisan has just come from an Age where it experienced being able to create and have everything it could possibly imagine within the constraints of resources at the time. The Mature Artisan now enters into an Age that must reconcile Having What It Wants and Being Who It Needs. Previous to this Soul Age, simply wanting something was often enough to have it, because it could either be created, or it could be discovered, and most of what was wanted was tangible and all "new" to the Artisan. In the Mature Soul Age, nothing tangible is "new" anymore, and what is most wanted is often intangible. This causes a struggle for the Mature Artisan so that cravings can often show up as a distraction with "things" as a means to compensate for the intangible, or as rejection of "things" as a means to hold out for the intangible. Mature Artisans can often find themselves in desperate relationships, devastating patterns of collapse and destruction, and manipulative methods for finding ways to be special. More than any other Role, this Role, in general, struggles with the inner battle between Specialness and Uniqueness. What the Mature Artisans eventually realize is that it is THEY whom they crave, desire, and want more than anything "in the world." Therein lies the reconciliation between Having and Being for the Mature Artisan. Artisans tend to develop patterns that leave them functioning only as conduits, often feeling as if "they" are left out, or left behind. During the Mature Soul Age, it is the first time in a long time that they "come home to themselves." And recognize their vital part in the equation of their desires and wants. Until that realization has been comprehended, there will be many instances where the Mature Artisan develops symbiotic relationships that continue to enforce the loss, or blurring, of self with environment or another. OLD ARTISANS The Old Artisan is often no longer concerned with creating tangible things, but struggles to make the entire life the creation, the work of art. Everything around the Old Artisan becomes symbolic and every symbol has meaning in relation to the self. The Old Artisan, then, is often tireless in the effort to showcase the life, the Personality, and even the relationships as symbolic extensions of the Soul. They become extremely sensitive to any deviation or distraction from their own symbology, and can often find themselves bewildered, hurting, and profoundly confused by these things. They develop systems of symbology that work, but often do not realize that these are not always the same symbols or meanings that others will tend to use. Eventually the Old Artisan realizes that there are a multitude of symbols and meanings for symbols that cannot be truly standardized, and this is when the Artisan is finally free. In conclusion for the Old Artisan, if the freedom is not found through the realization of various symbolic systems, then that Artisan may find he or she begins to tunnel-vision into a closed network that only supports his or her system of symbols, and anything beyond that is either a threat, or is ignored. Due to time constraints, we will do our best to streamline the details for each of the following Roles, and Troy will "flesh it out" for the final transcript. We will address Old Warrior, Old Scholar, Old Sage, and Old Priest now. We will include the rest in the final transcript. OLD WARRIORS The Old Warrior has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING AMBITION and BEING SAFE. During the Mature Age, both of those terms become profoundly redefined so that "ambition" becomes "enthusiasm" and "safe" becomes "loved." The Old Warrior then begins to naturally generate enthusiasm over emphasis on accomplishment and ambition, and begins to persuade circles of love from the self and from others as opposed to circles of protection and safety. Protection is no longer seen in terms of defense against physical threats, but as a transformation of strengths through the capacity to love. This may go counter to what is often understood as a Warrior, but the Old Warrior is done fighting, and seeks to share what it has found to be the most bountiful resource and strength in the universe: Love. Of course, this can show up in many different ways and to several different degrees, but when the Old Warrior is manifested, it has a profound sense of safety in the world and seeks to extend that validity to others. If the Old Warrior has not comprehended that sense of safety, he or she will often show up as emphasizing warnings, concerns, preemptive strategies, and constant over-anticipation. OLD SCHOLARS The Old Scholar has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING EXPERIENCE and BEING INTIMATE. During the Mature Age, the reconciliation between Experience and Intimacy is a long, often painful, road for the Scholar. Much of what is considered necessary by the Scholar for Experience is to have as "clean" an experience as possible, which often means leaving others out of the inner world that processes these experiences. QUESTION: Could you define intimacy in the sense of your meaning? MEntity: Intimacy here is meant as any form of Resonance, from sharing common ground to sex. The key being that it is INCLUSIVE, in that what is shared is not only mutual, but experienced as mutual. More than any other Role, the Scholar struggles with issues of Intimacy, of feeling connected to others, of finding common ground, and of feeling embraced. The Old Scholar has realized that Experience and Intimacy are not mutually exclusive, but Intimacy has been put off for so long for the sake of experiments, exploration, etc., that the world of Intimacy as an Old Soul is entirely new for the most part. Because the nature of the Scholar is to observe objectively, then this search for Intimacy may often be approached from the angle of provision, in that IF it exists, then it must be something provided for the Scholar, and not something he or she must work to generate from the self. Intimacy is such an amorphous concept to the Scholar that in the Old Soul Age, it will either feign intimacy as a means to have any kind of human contact at all, often leaving it to others to sort out the details, or to nurture that intimacy, or it will finally realize that he or she IS the source of intimacy, and begin to develop this from "the inside, out." The issue for the Scholar is often that if it is not found externally, then it is not a valid Experience, and therefore is not to be trusted. Ironically, anything that is already deemed as so amorphous that it cannot be trusted when generated within will also be deemed suspicious when generated from others. Therefore, the key for the Old Scholar in his or her embrace of Being Intimate is to begin comprehending TRUST. Trust is a mix of anticipated results and past experiences. It is not blind, and therefore it can be used by the Scholar. When the Old Scholar begins to recognize his or her embrace of himself, he or she can then begin to embrace others. If the embrace of others is attempted before the embrace of self, then there will always be an equation that returns the Scholar back to the beginning. They are highly mathematical that way. Trust comes in as the gathering of experience grows to show the Scholar that he or she will not die because he or she reached out, and that one is not alone just because one might actually like oneself. In short, the validity of Being for the Scholar cannot be proven through others, but the validity of others can be proven through the embrace of Being. OLD SAGES The Old Sage has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING FUN and BEING HONEST. Now the Old Sage begins to emphasize Being Honest, even if it means at the expense of Fun. Old Sages often begin to withdraw from the "stage" and move into tighter circles that value honesty and true communication. It is no longer appealing in any way to simply perform the life. For the first time, the Old Sage values the importance of truly being SEEN. Even if there are a myriad of personas from habit and skill, the emphasis will still be there underlying every relationship and every opportunity: PLEASE SEE ME. This starts out as a kind of panic for some Sages entering the Old Soul Age, in that their existence depends on the utter honesty and rawness of being SEEN, and this can show up in desperate attempts to be understood, clarifying themselves, over-explaining, etc. This eventually levels out to a simple state of invitation. The emphasis moves from needing to be seen exactly how the Sage sees himself or herself to an emphasis on understanding how others actually see. This comprehension frees the Old Sage from the panic and loneliness of not being seen, and moves him or her into simply BEING HONEST. Once the Sage realizes that he or she cannot control how others interpret others, then Being Honest stands as an invitation, not as a prompt. QUESTION: How much of this "role in essence" material applies to casting? MEntity: All of what we have described can be extrapolated to apply to understanding Casting and Imprinting, in terms of Roles. INTERJECTION: I've never thought of Imprinting being a co-equal on use of role descriptors MEntity: For many who live as the Role that most influenced them, it can be helpful for freeing the self by transforming the dynamic that keeps the imprinting locked in place. Imprinting will always supercede Role and Casting, as Personality has the most control and influence while Physical. We should say, Imprinting will always supercede Role, Casting, and Overleaves. INTERJECTION: So, that's why it's especially important to figure out one's parents' profiles :) MEntity: Not necessarily. What would be more important is honest self-examination to determine just how conflicted one is within himself or herself. When Imprinting is useful, there is no conflict. When Imprinting is harmful, there is often pain ranging from apathy to tremendous turmoil. Harmful Imprinting ALWAYS shows up as the reprimanding voice that undermines your efforts. ALWAYS. Harmful Imprinting ALWAYS shows up as any conclusive voice within that divides you and defeats you. Your inherent nature, when free from harmful Imprinting, is truthful, loving, and energetic. When weighed with harmful Imprinting, you become divided with a dishonest, shameful, and undermining force against that inherent nature. However, it must be understood that Imprinting is NEVER PERMANENT and can be shed at any moment. If one struggles for any length of time with that Imprinting that is harmful, then some part of the self finds some value in it. We define "harmful Imprinting" as any Imprinting that has been kept beyond the 3rd Internal Monad that does not serve the Personality and Essence in any helpful way. QUESTION: why and how is it that a personality tends to manifest more essence as it progresses through the soul ages? QUESTION: still don't understand this... QUESTION is personality designed that way by essence? MEntity: The progression of Soul Ages is our way of describing a regaining of consciousness that allows for bridging between the Essence and Personality. That regaining of consciousness is done through experience. Therefore, in early lifetimes that have less experience, then it goes that less consciousness is involved, and thus less manifestation of Essence. Even the Oldest of Souls must regain consciousness within a single lifetime, yet that regaining of consciousness is accelerated because of the sheer weight of experience previous to that lifetime. It is not that manifestation of Essence does not happen within earlier lifetimes, but that the manifestation is specific to the degree of consciousness, relative to the degree of experience. So an Infant Soul can manifest Essence fully into the lifetime, but most of that manifestation would still be within the contexts (or degrees) of Survival. When an Old Soul is born into a body, that infant body is going to drool and wail and poop itself as it focuses on surviving. To that degree, that Personality's consciousness can manifest Essence. As that body grows, so does its capacity for consciousness. In that same way, the ROLE grows for ESSENCE. The Role and Essence are two different things. Therefore, the "body" that is the Role must grow over lifetimes as a means to manifest more of its Essence.
  2. July 1, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks Online – Open Floor [Note: Here is the transcript from Thursday’s Chat! It was great! I have asked Michael for some clarification on some of it, so there is editing involved. Enjoy! Troy] [M Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here with you. Tonight we will open the floor to any questions or topics of interest to each of you as best we can. Troy has restrictions against personal questions, but if you have a way to present a question that is beneficial for all, we will attempt to respond accordingly. [kittlekats41] This is based on a personal experience, but I am interested in an answer that everyone can relate to: when we moved down to Atlanta we stopped overnight at a hotel. Upon arrival here [to Atlanta] the energy felt off-centered and discordant, which it hadn’t been before. One of the cats was especially vocal and restless. We determined that we had picked up a ‘stray’ energy that attached itself to us at the hotel with a number of others; we were able to clean the space and remove the energy into a better environment for it – an old tree that is grounded. The question is: a) how common is it for this type of experience to occur? b) how can we deal with it when it does? and c) are animals a common barometer to identify when it happens? That is my question:-) [M Entity] We would first respond that we would not describe any energy as “stray” that might attach itself to you randomly. We have rarely seen a case of energetic resonance that was not in some way “invited” or allowed. However, what you refer to as “hotels” and “motels” are full of what might accurately be described as “echo energies”. In other words, the emotional and intellectual imprints from the many fragments passing through a small space (which is assumed by fragments to be a sanctuary in many ways) can become literally “coated” with these “echoes” of energy. In the same way that there are “ghosts” of the dead, there are “ghosts” of the living, as well. “Ghosts” are merely echoes of energy, whether from the living or the dead. With all of that being said, your being affected by an echo is based on a particular resonance you must have had with that “echo”. It appears to us that you were in a space of deeper concern, worry, anticipation, and possibly anxiety, than you were in the previous trip. [kittlekats41] true [M Entity] This would naturally align you with any other fragment's concerns, worries, anticipations, anxiety that had left an imprint in that hotel room or location. This alignment then would naturally amplify your own energy, yet again, and because it then becomes disproportional to your original concerns, etc., it can feel strangely disconcerting and distracting. [kittlekats41] would that echo remain as a presence for a number of weeks afterwards and be detected by the animals? [M Entity] We will respond to your questions as quickly and as orderly as possible. The way you can “deal with this” is to consciously “clear the space” in any environment that has acted as a sanctuary for so many other fragments. Doing so upon settling into your room can greatly increase your experience of peace and temporary ownership of that space. A simple visualization of a colorful light of your choice sweeping through the room and clearing it of all darker or heavier energies is enough. It is not necessary to create an elaborate ritual; just a simple, conscious shifting of the room’s energy to accommodate you is enough. We would suggest avoiding rituals focusing on “protection”, as this simply amplifies a contrast between you and your space and does not effect a peaceful, restful shift. Animals are more sensitive to these echoes than most humans, but they are even more sensitive to the effects of the echoes on their human companions. In other words, your animal companion was responding to your own agitations than to the separate “stray energy” you theorized. The “echo” remains only in the space in which is imprinted, but the effects of that echo upon you can last for weeks. It was Good Work that you created time to transform that effect upon you and to ground yourself again. [BradburySE] I just have a question about the number of inputs for the various roles. It seems to be well known that Artisans have five inputs and Sages three, but how about the other roles? I've never seen this written anywhere. [M Entity] The “solid roles” of King, Warrior, and Scholar have a single input, while the inspirational roles of Priest and Server have 2 inputs. [H2OSprtlvr] We were talking about the 9/11 movie by Michael Moore and it was mentioned that he is a Sage and he had a reincarnation from Josiah Royce. This seems confusing to me that he is a Sage, because all the studying and fact finding is so Scholar. I was wondering where the Scholar might be in his personality, since Sages only want to have fun and are not into fact finding or writing books. [M Entity] First we will say that we have never said, nor have we implied, that Sages “only want to have fun” and that they are not “into fact finding or writing books”. This conclusion is highly simplified and inaccurate of the Sage and of the Scholar. The very Essence of a Sage is to find the Truth and then to disseminate what they have come to believe is true. In that search for the Truth, they will use any means possible. The stereotype of the Sage comes from the fact that in most cases a Sage's method of “fact-finding” and “writing books” simply ends up looking like so much more “fun”. By contrast, the Scholars have been responsible for some of the most influential and “beautiful” music on your planet. This could look contrary to the stereotype of the Scholar, but in fact the Scholar finds the connection between music and math to be one of the most beautiful aspects of life on earth and if that can be translated into music, they will try. We explain this to you to help contribute to your broadening understanding of the Roles of Sage and Scholar. This is not to say that the fragment now known as Michael Moore does not have Scholar influences, because, in fact, he actually does. This Sage is Scholar-Cast, with a Server Essence Twin. [H2OSprtvr] I realize I was stereotyping and I'm grateful for further clarification on the roles. [M Entity] Comparing the lives of Beethoven and Royce/Moore can give you great insight into the differences between how a Sage-Cast Scholar (Beethoven) vs. a Scholar-Cast Sage (Michael Moore) may act within a lifetime. In most cases, a Sage-Cast individual will behave more like the “stereotypical” Sage than a Sage with different Casting. Furthermore, in most instances when a fragment is behaving like one of the Essence “stereotypes”, it is usually an indicator of that person's Casting than of their Role. [BingeBuddie] I know this may seem like a very basic question, but I have had a hard time validating my role in essence. With so many factors to consider such as casting, ET influence, overleaves, and entity position, etc. is there any definitive way to determine your role? I’ve went with channels in the past, but that causes confusion because its difficult to tell what one input is as opposed to many inputs, such as Scholar having one and Artisan having 5. One channel Roles (Scholar, King, and Warrior) can concentrate in the midst of chaos right? So that's kind of what I try to look at. Is that a good indicator? [M Entity] No, we would not suggest using your ability to concentrate as your determining factor. The symptom of concentration vs. distraction in terms of Input is another of the simplifications that can happen when first learning about a part of the teaching. While it is true that an Essence with a single input can usually focus more intently in the midst of chaos, the influence of Personality, Imprinting, and Situations can greatly affect that level of concentration. What we would suggest as part of your validation of your Role in Essence is this: First, study the Roles. It is important to truly comprehend each Role. This means moving beyond the stereotypes that are a part of the initial stage of learning. Next, it is important to understand the vital differences between Essence and Casting. Casting affects how you behave “naturally”, how you express yourself to the world on a DAILY BASIS. Your Essence Role is most obviously comprehended in moments where you feel you SHINE. For instance: A Scholar-Cast Sage: In the daily life of this individual he may appear unkempt, distracted, refined, studious, directed, serious, and maybe even a bit out of synch socially, but this fragment would “shine” as soon as he was able to publicly share what he has gained as experiences in a way that was entertaining to at least a small group. A Sage-Cast Scholar, on the other hand, may be dramatic, socially obnoxious, emotional, depressed, extreme, performing, and chaotic in his daily life, but this fragment would “shine” when he is able to wholly comprehend something that can be finalized as a bit of profound personal knowledge. We do not know of a more appropriate word than “shine”. When you are in Essence, you feel complete, “on”, and you usually feel cohesion between your mundane self and your higher self. When we say “shine”, we do not intend to mean that everyone will see this, but rather that the Personality and Essence open to each other and a sense of lightness and wholeness pervade. We explain all of this to you in the context of an Essence having a different Role than Casting, but of course, there ARE Sage-Cast Sages and Scholar-Cast Scholars, but those fragments usually have little confusion as to their Role. Having explained those basic differences between Casting and Role in Essence, you can then figure out your Role or Casting by first determining if you feel you are more exalted or more ordinal in either of those contexts. In other words, in your DAILY LIFE, are you more one-on-one, but when you “shine”, are you surrounded by people? One-on-One might indicate a more Ordinal position, while being inclined toward groups can be an indication of an Exalted position. Once you have determined how you may behave in either context, you can then determine if you feel you are more compelled to have an inspiring, expressive, or active effect on your environment. This will then give you an indication as to the final role description you might be in your Casting or your Essence. For example, you may notice you are naturally more one-on-one in your daily life, thus indicating that you may be Ordinal-Cast, but when you “shine”, you notice you love to be in a group of people in some way, indicating you may be an Exalted Essence Role. Then you would determine if you are more inclined to be expressive, inspiring, or active in your daily life. If you find you are more concerned with inspiring, you could then safely start trying out the idea that you may be SERVER-CAST. When you “shine”, you may find you are more inclined to be expressive, entertaining, and teaching-oriented, which may indicate a SAGE ESSENCE. This would then be a Server-Cast Sage. We realize this can still be very confusing and difficult to determine, but it is a start. Because the Scholar Role is neutral, it can be the most difficult to determine and we would not be able to convey in this format the depth of questioning that would need to be explored for true validation of the Essence or Casting. One of the most important things you can do while studying our teaching and seeking to validate your Role, Casting, Overleaves, Entity, and Essence Twins, etc. is be open to an evolution of your understanding. You may discover that what you believed was inaccurate channeling is actually profoundly accurate to who you realize you are becoming (as you come into your own identity). Or you may discover that your self-determined Overleaves were highly inaccurate in your initial understanding and you now see that you are someone completely different after all. Never feel as if you must conclude who you are. Our system is designed to help you understand who you are, not complicate your self-perception. If you are thoroughly confused, pick a Role, pick your Overleaves, and begin “living with them”. You will begin to see what does and does not hold validity. [BingeBuddie] But would you have to be past the 4th internal monad to judge completely accurately as to what role you are? (not to ask ANOTHER lengthy question) [M Entity] It does help to have completed the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole for true self-awareness in terms of Essence, Casting, and True Personality. But then, that is the very crux of having a completion of the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole, so it is not a matter of waiting for that rite to pass before seeking valid self-awareness. We are working with Troy in creating two new ways of determining your own basic profiles: a self-test, and a step-by-step process of elimination method. We believe this will help many of our students. We never sought to have any student dependent on our channels, so this is an important evolution to our sharing of the teachings. We believe we have given you at least some “food for thought” until then. [freyaisissuz] That's great, Troy, I will keep it short. I have sensed a connection with J Royce/M Moore. Is he a “reality shifter” or “dream maker” as in cadre 1/entity 3; if another, where? [M Entity] That is a valid observation. This is a fragment some of our channels would call a “wild card” within Cadre One, Entity Three, as well. This fragment is one of the youngest soul ages in that Entity. (3rd Level Mature) If there are no more questions, we will conclude for the evening. If there are more questions, we will take one more. [BradburySE]: A quick one [M Entity] Yes, Shannon, we will conclude with your question. [BradburySE] Who is this other “Dogma Dismantler” besides Michael Moore of whom you spoke in Troy’s energy report? Where will we find him, and is he or she now incarnated? [M Entity] Yes, he is incarnated: a Server Essence Twin of the Sage known as Michael Moore. The Server is a reincarnation of William James now focusing on the funneling of necessary requirements as a means to convey the Sage's “truth”. He may only be peripherally identified in the media. We believe he is one of the “producers” of Michael Moore's films, as well as several of his own projects which reflect some of the profound psychology explored in his previous life as William James. [BradburySE] Thank you, we can figure it out from here most likely! ? [M Entity] This relationship would appear to be more like a Task Companion relationship, but that is not the case. The relationship is taut with disagreements and power struggles, regardless of the powerful results. Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
  3. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We see the concern over which direction we would go today in describing the variations on the Role. Today, we are asked to discuss what might best be described as the "facets" of a Role. These would be the same, regardless of Soul Age, and do not represent a progression into the conscious use of the Role. The evolution of the use of a Role is relative to Soul Ages and Levels, so for instance, and Old Sage is very different from a Young Sage. But, today, we will discuss WHAT KIND of Sage, not necessarily how evolved the Sage. We see there is speculation as to correlation with Casting as a means for defining these variations on a Role, and that is in part true, but only in part. These Facets "rotate" for each Role, and while Casting tends to describe a default, a Role can have locked into any one of the Facets. After we do our best to provide a synopsis of the Facets, we can then describe what factors of correlation can be used to help determine one's Facet. The reason we will describe the Facets first is because each of you are probably well aware of which one you are, and the correlations may help to serve as validation. We will ask you: which Role would you like for us to begin? Maureen: Server babylove78: could we do the roles we have in the chat first? Claire: Good idea. Kurtis: hence why I asked ? Mariusyup: ordinal-->cardinal? MEntity: We will begin. Kurtis: We have a Sage, Scholar, Artisan, Artisan, Priest, Warrior, Sage, King, Scholar, Priest. The only one we don't have is Server ? MEntity: 7 FACETS OF SCHOLAR For simplistic purposes, we WILL use the correlation of Casting to Role to help you to map the Facets, but what we will offer today are phrases or terms that might better capture the "sub-archetype" that is that Facet of that Archetype. We remind you that your Casting may not indicate which Facet of the Role you have locked into. THE SERVER-SCHOLAR might best be described as the QUIET CONDUCTOR. This is the Scholar with the high levels of attentiveness and efficiency that knows best how to move people, energy, and events like parts of an orchestra. Even when not in any obvious connection, this Conductor is keenly aware of how even the compartmental elements of the life are working together on some level. When this Scholar is in the Positive Poles, the Conducting is always for the best interest of what has been deemed this symbolic orchestra of the life. The efficiency and attention serve to bring out the best "sounds" of all involved so that all benefit. When this Scholar is in the Negative Poles, the Conducting is not in the best interest of the orchestra, so to speak, but in the best interest of just keeping things quiet, contained, and manageable. THE ARTISAN-SCHOLAR might be described as the FAST THINKER. This is the Scholar who is quick on his feet, thorough in his thought, and quite vast in his range of thought. He is able to extrapolate quite quickly from data already known, and present valid ideas and concepts. To "save time" in our delivery today, we will only share the Negative Poles, since the basic description has its Positive Poles implied. When this Scholar is in the Negative Pole, the Fast Thinker drops into being a Fast Liar. THE WARRIOR-SCHOLAR might be described as THE OPPOSITION. This is the Scholar who actively challenges you, ideas, and concepts, and is conservative and deliberate, headstrong. This Scholar will very easily flip to another point of view, as long as it is challenging. In the Negative Pole, this Scholar just becomes pushy, badgering, and even bullying in perspectives. THE SCHOLAR-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE DISCIPLINED - this is the Scholar who is impelled and driven and consumed by whatever has drawn his attention and interests. He loses himself in this, but for the sake of complete sensory experience. In the Negative Pole, this Scholar reduces himself to addictions, compulsions, obsession, and does not lose himself IN an experience, but loses himself TO an experience. In other words, loses himself, altogether. This Scholar will try to compensate through the use of control and even micro-managing. THE SAGE-SCHOLAR - This Scholar might best be described as THE JUDGE. This is the Scholar with a keen sense of justice, "right," "wrong," and is very precise in his calculations, whether in broader, intangible ways such as assessing character, or in direct and tangible ways such as assessing actions. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar can fall into incite, provocation, barbed and abrasive assessments. THE PRIEST-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE PHILOSOPHER - This Scholar is slower in his thinking, pondering, and tends away from conclusions and closed systems of thinking. Though he would be methodical, intellectual, and quite fond of systems, it would only be for the sake of grasping the nature of a thing, a person, or existence. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar might fall into escapist daydreaming, logical loops, and confusion. THE KING-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE HUMANITARIAN - This is the Scholar who is most concerned with principles, ethics, quality of life gained from experiences, and not so much about curiosity, risk, and adventures. The emphasis is on how the knowledge can help sustain quality of life. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar falls into apathy, dispassion, disillusionment. Though these are quite brief descriptions of these Facets of Scholar, we ask the Scholars here if there is any resonance to one of these for you. DianeHB: I'm pretty sure Tex is a Priest-Scholar (he thinks so too) ClaireC: I resonate most with the Artisan Scholar. babylove78: Kurtis, for the Scholar-Scholar I immediately thought of you:-) Kurtis: it's probably my public facet then ClaireC: The Server-Scholar sounds like my sister. Kurtis: I know quite a few warrior scholars MEntity: We will continue: THE 7 FACETS OF ARTISAN THE SERVER-ARTISAN might be described as THE CATALYST - These Artisans tend to have an effect, with or without realizing it, and that effect tends to be in terms of energizing, bringing out a sense of presence and empowerment, and even prompting a sense of participation that may not be usual for himself, or for those with whom he interacts. The CATALYSTS tend to invigorate and motivate, and feel strongly about those qualities. When in the Negative Poles, this Artisan can fall into anxiousness, frantic defense, and retreat from the very obligations and responsibilities he has created for himself. In short, he resists change, particularly if that is not on his terms. THE ARTISAN - ARTISAN is THE ANARCHIST - This is the most chaotic, explosive, and unwieldy of the Artisans, and this is a "good thing" for breaking down rules, owning responsibility for one's actions and creations, and bringing about drastically new directions. When The Anarchist falls into the Negative Poles, it is corruption, violence, invasive, and complete disregard. THE WARRIOR-ARTISAN is THE FACILITATOR - This is the Artisan who blooms when breaking from traditions, relies on personal innovation and invention, and becomes a facilitator for helping bring change to others by pure example. When in the Negative Pole, this Facilitator becomes self-important and indulgent, detached from the impact of her break from traditions, and loses any sense of being meaningful in the lives of others. THE SCHOLAR - ARTISAN is THE COMPOSER - This is the Artisan who is quite focused, strategic, and sensitive to fairness and balance in what is being created. The Composer draws from her experiences as a means to create, and considers the life and its relationships a resource, not a burden. When The Composer falls into The Negative Pole, she begins to "play" people, to manipulate the song, so to speak, and to force scenarios based on distorted ideas of what is fair, mostly in terms of what is fair only to the self. THE SAGE-ARTISAN is THE CHAMELEON. This is the Artisan who may not even seem like an Artisan, but is quite malleable, flexible, can appear and seem like whatever her surroundings might ask of her. This is a tremendously useful state that can help bring change, creativity, and insight into some of the most resistant scenarios. When in the Negative Pole, The Chameleon can fall into uselessness, ineffectiveness, pointlessness, and lose herself to her surroundings, either because of the overwhelm of those surroundings, or the sense of personal identity is lost in her "cover." THE PRIEST-ARTISAN is THE PROGRESSIVE. This Artisan is utterly original in her thinking and creativity, but mostly for the sake of propelling states toward more freedom and expansion and inclusivity. Whether in business, a relationship, or in a society, this Artisan wants to uphold freedom for all, not just herself. When THE PROGRESSIVE falls into the Negative Poles, it can turn into an upholding of a vision to such an extent that the path to it no longer matters. The end justifies the means. Progress is at any cost. THE KING-ARTISAN is THE INSTRUMENT - This Artisan becomes the change she wishes to see in the world, but not as an example, such as the Facilitator, but as a path. THE INSTRUMENT acts as a kind of magnet that pulls in those who wish to transform, and the effect is that there is transformation. When The Instrument falls into the Negative Pole, there is grand delusion, complete loss of discernment, and high levels of empty promise. Of the Artisans here, with which Facet do you find you resonate? Mariusyup: very unsure Kurtis: I guess I'd probably fit best with the scholar facet. I've leaned towards the organizing neutral i suppose MEntity: We will say that of the Roles, the Artisans may tend to be the least likely to "see" which Facet, while those around them can see them as quite glaring. Mariusyup: it IS very hard to see Kurtis: it's just my intuition, but you might be a sage-facet marius? MEntity: Look to your Casting for clues as a start, but that is only as a start. From there, depending upon your reaction to the description, you can then look to the Facet on that same Axis. Then go from there. Narrow down until one feels "right." Kurtis: okie doke MEntity: We can say that once one has eliminated both Axis options relative to Casting, then the correlation to MODE is usually next, then Attitude. Kurtis: m probably neutral then MEntity: NEXT We are working on building our momentum of delivery. THE 7 FACETS OF PRIEST THE SERVER-PRIEST is THE CAPABLE - This is the Priest who tends to endure, and can endure, for a very long time, because he CAN. There is a sense of dishonesty in moving away that that which is being endured because it feels as if it is a lie to dishonor that endurance. THE CAPABLE are surprisingly emotionally-intelligent and in need of expression far more than what is revealed. The emotional intelligence gives great insight into the innocence and hearts of those around him so that it is difficult to fault them for what is endured, and the need for expression is often set aside in favor of enduring. The endurance is seen as worth it for the sake of keeping innocence alive. When The Capable falls into the Negative Pole, they disappear. It is that simple. THE ARTISAN-PRIEST is THE INITIATOR - We mean this term in both the sense that The Initiator acts as kind of initiation into concepts and ideas that were completely foreign to those now being exposed, and that The Initiator can be the one who prompts the start of a new direction. When The Initiator falls into the Negative Poles, it could be said that she falls into simply being a troublemaker, instigator, antagonistic. THE WARRIOR-PRIEST is THE BOSS. This is the Priest who, in all honesty and authenticity, literally knows what is best for you. They are confidence in the flesh, with high ambition for making sure everyone knows what is best for them, since they have that knowledge. If you would "just listen to them" and "do as they say," you would be much better off. And they are right. When they are right. When The Boss falls into the Negative Pole, it is all about being right, and not about being helpful. It is feels to be an affront to their core to be questioned or dismissed or to have their quality insights ignored. For The Boss to be ineffective or even have a suggestion of being "wrong," it is literally painful. THE SCHOLAR-PRIEST is THE EDITOR - This is the Priest who is not so worried about the big picture, but is more worried about the details, and is quite good at seeing those details that need to be addressed and changed. The Editor will, literally, help one to "rewrite" patterns and behaviors that can bring about the change one might envision on a larger scale, but that bigger picture is up to you. The Editor is only concerned with the details. When The Editor falls into the Negative Poles, she falls into tedium, banality, boredom, routine, and even apathy. Life becomes dull to the senses, and great blasts of "something, anything" are necessary to help revitalize her sense of participation in the world and her life. THE SAGE-PRIEST is THE DIGNIFIED. This Priest is concerned with nobility, refinement, formality, and great consideration. They are an embodiment of elegance and discretion, and this is both in terms of superficiality and in terms of how energy is used in the life. When energy is used elegantly, there is a maximum amount of return for minimal amount of expenditure. When The Dignified falls into the Negative Pole, there is collapse, hoarding, deep attachment to identity and appearance, and the things that represent these. THE PRIEST-PRIEST is THE ABSOLUTIST. This Priest only knows what this Priest knows and anything beyond that is not worth knowing. They are often quite removed from the trappings of life, and and distance themselves in many ways from everything not deemed of value. This makes these Priests very good at what they know, but what they know tends to be quite specialized. When The Absolutist falls into the Negative Poles, it can show up as profound arrogance, dismissal, and superiority complexes that are either crippling shyness or crippling vanity. If you have not noticed by now, there is always one Facet of a Role that is the most challenging of the Facets, and has a hard time "being positive" in its function in the world. VIP: I had not noticed that myself actually DianeHB: The Priest-Priest and Artisan-Artisan and Scholar-Scholar? Bobby: The same facet as the role? The KING-PRIEST is THE DIPLOMAT - She is the Priest who can see all sides, is balanced in perspective and insight, and can help to bring that out in others. She is often in positions that resolve conflict, help to find common ground, and encourage strength in differences. When The Diplomat falls into the Negative Poles, she can find herself in the middle of constant conflict, developing a kind of recoiling from anything different or challenging, and doing all she can to "keep the peace," even if it is false. Shall we cover Sage, next? Bobby: Sure DianeHB: Sure MEntity: Before we do, how do the Priests feel about their Facets and do you find resonance? VIP: I'd say mine would be either server or king facet (although none of my overleaves are on the action axis - nor is my casting, sometimes sage as well but rarely - Endurance, definitely - I'm not sure about emotional intelligence for myself but it could be either way We will point out that one's Facet does change. One tends to lock into one of these overall, but there may be a period of time, or a specific context, that draws up a different Facet. DianeHB: Does it not change over lifetimes? Kurtis: I wonder if the facets of these appear in contexts of overleaves. So a Priest with Acceptance might use the sage facet at times even if its not the main VIP: I'd say I'm probably locked into Server then, "sliding" to King or Sage; can't say I identified with the other facets Kurtis: but in terms of when they use acceptance most Diane, yes. In one lifetime, the Facet might lock into one Facet while in another will lock into a different Facet. MEntity: AN ASIDE: The reason there are Facets to these Roles is because of your evolving relationship with your Cadences. This is why your Casting is often the default, because it is quite natural to your Essence to function from what that Casting brings out as a Facet. But you expand upon the functioning of your Essence by exchanging energy among your Cadence. Very early lifetimes are locked into one Facet for great lengths of time, but as the Essence evolves, so does its capacity to draw from all Facets, even from within a single lifetime. THE 7 FACETS OF SAGE THE SERVER-SAGE is THE CONTRADICTION - This is the Sage who keeps everyone on their toes, is incredibly perceptive, discerning, and highly considerate, and almost always generates mixed emotions in everyone around them. They are a paradox of innocence and ancient wisdom, compassion and harsh criticism, irresponsibility and fierce accountability. When The Contradiction falls into the Negative Pole, it could be said that they fall into caricature and cliche. THE ARTISAN-SAGE is THE FIREBALL. This Sage is all about moving away from lethargy and complacency, bringing enthusiasm, invigoration, and experience. They "light a fire under your asses" by any means possible, and always for the sake for bringing life and creativity back into the equation. When The Fireball falls into the Negative Pole, they simply become annoying, hyper, distracted and distracting. THE WARRIOR-SAGE is THE COORDINATOR. This is the "least-sagey" of the Sages, and can often come across as quite stuffy and stuck compared to the other Facets. But this Sage is depending on self-reliance, proven methods, familiar directions, and stability. This is of great benefit to the Sage who has not had a lifetime in a long time that had any stability, or independence. When The Coordinator is in the Negative Pole, stability takes priority over substance, and the stuff of life is stripped from the life in ways that tend to be cumulative so that the Sage "looks up" one day and realizes he has not lived. THE SCHOLAR-SAGE is THE INVESTIGATOR. This Sage tends to be in a life that is all about itself and all that it can learn from itself. It is not your usual hammy, extroverted, or available Sage, but this is not to say they are particularly reserved or unavailable. It is simply that this Sage wants to learn and feels that most people and things can be a distraction from that. So they tend to focus on highly particular elements of the life, and then the life revolves around those elements for the whole life. When The Investigator falls into the Negative Pole they can fall into squalor, neglect, tunnel-vision, and ill health that helps to evade experiences outside of a very quiet parameter. THE SAGE-SAGE is THE BARRICADE. This is the Sage who reaches a certain point in the life and is then DONE. She is no longer interested in much past what has already been done. She will work through all that has been done, but will rarely take on more. This Sage knows that there are ancient wounds in the Instinctive Center and that one only gets a good lifetime every so often in which one can tend to those wounds. Her focus may seem insular and closed off, but she is doing the work of healing for lifetimes. When The Barricade falls into the Negative Poles, she locks out anyone and everything. She is not just done with taking on more, she is done working on herself. She no longer lives, but simply waits. THE PRIEST-SAGE is THE DESIGNER. This is the Sage who focuses his wisdom and communication on creating patterns that all play into a bigger picture or ideal. Nothing is without its calculation, skill, and refined agenda. This may be conscious or subconscious, but this is one Facet of one Role where "everything happens for a reason" is often actually true. When The Designer is in the Negative Poles, she falls into fatalism, distractions with "signs" and "omens" and superstitions. She becomes so preoccupied with what "everything means" that she begins to diminish the meaning. The KING-SAGE is THE ANCHOR. This is the Sage that will tend to have had the most scattered of origins and range of experiences, only to bring it all home to actually become a sanctuary for others. Their range of mistakes and failings and blunders and aimlessness turn into deep compassion and acceptance for the human condition and this translates into these Sages feeling a lot like Home. When The King-Sage falls into the Negative Poles, she can fall into resentment, guilt, lack of sensation and sense of movement, and simply feel trapped or stuck. For the Sages, do you recognize yourself in any of these? DianeHB: Is Troy a King-Sage? babylove78: yes: DESIGNER is probably my main facet and then I also see CONTRADICTION and FIREBALL... Kurtis: I see nicholas as designer too AnnH: I see quite a few. ? Server one really resonated. babylove78: ? MEntity: Troy has long been The Contradiction, and is owning his Facets as The Designer and The Anchor as his life unfolds. DianeHB: I thought he fit both Contradiction and Anchor MEntity: Each of you will have resonance to all Facets. They do not disappear when one comes to the front. DianeHB: Do we have time for one more? Can you do King next? Bobby: Do King before Warrior please. Save Warrior another time if need be. MEntity: THE 7 FACETS OF KING THE SERVER-KING is THE BELOVED. This is the most nurturing, loyal, and sincere of the Kings in terms of how they go forward into Mastery. Their tactics tend to grant them great respect and admiration and love from all who know of them or who are affected by them in any way. This can be subtle or obvious, but it is something they come to realize sooner or later as they wake up in the life. When The Beloved falls into the Negative Poles, it never occurs to them that they could possibly be so loved, that they could possibly make much difference, and everything simply seems obligatory and routine. In short, they miss out on themselves. THE ARTISAN-KING is THE CREATOR. This is the King who is slow, deliberate, and is greatly concerned with the greater arc of the life and an ultimate creation or fulfillment. When The Creator falls into the Negative Poles, he forgets that he is creator. He falls into a kind of amnesia that feels as if the life is a constant struggle to wake up into, and even then, there is a struggle to feel as if one has a right to participate. The WARRIOR-KING is THE CUSTODIAN. This is the King who feels responsible for "everything," and will work hard to maneuver the life and the lives of others in ways that help all parts to work together for the betterment of everything. When The Custodian falls into the Negative Poles, he will tend to check out, to resign, to to become embittered and distanced from all forms of responsibility. THE SCHOLAR-KING is THE ADVOCATE. This King takes on causes and stands as representative of those causes, being a resource for information, structure, and direction for fulfilling the direction of the cause. When The Advocate is in the Negative Poles, he falls into stridency, warring, and combativeness that often tends to defeat the very point of the fight. THE SAGE-KING is THE WISE ONE. This is the King who is all about being a source of information, sharing observations, and exemplifying adaptability. When The Wise One falls into the Negative Poles, he is a fountain of inappropriate information and observations that have no bearing on the current contexts. THE PRIEST-KING is THE PRECEDENCE. This is the King willing to do what others would not do so as to set precedence, pave a way, and open of paths for others. When The Precedence falls into the Negative Poles, he becomes repetitive, breaking into directions for the sake of impressing or making a point, but not with any concern for those who might follow behind. The KING-KING is THE CORNERSTONE. This is the most immovable, predictable, and "safe" King. He has established his position in the life and will not move from that. This can be quite comforting and bring great stability to a "kingdom" and a lifetime that comes after great arcs of strife and struggles. When The Cornerstone falls into the Negative Poles, he becomes "dead weight" or a "black hole." This is the King who has determined that his direction or stance is not up for examination or change, and this means he can hold steady even on a crash course, taking everyone and everything down with him. We know we have not covered all Roles, but Troy is exhausting his limits. We must conclude here for now. We can continue in further exchanges. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now. [EDIT FROM TROY: I decided to get these in as soon as possible, so I am up at 8am to finish this! Here you go!] MEntity: THE 7 FACETS OF WARRIOR THE SERVER-WARRIOR is THE CHAMPION. This is the Warrior who tends to go for standing up for people, for aligning with the underdog, for defending the weak. The Champion will even do this for those he does not like or care for, but feels the impulse to protect, defend, and help create more room for their existence. When The Champion falls into its Negative Poles, he can begin to "champion" for those who need no defense, to defend at the expense of his own well-being, and to defend "just to defend." This is because he is feeling defensive in his own life, and since no one is coming to his defense, he frantically looks for anyone to defend as a means for compensation. THE ARTISAN-WARRIOR is THE BOHEMIAN. This is the Warrior who is irreverent, unorthodox, "breaks the mold," and helps pave the way for less-creative souls. He learns to shake off expectations, demands, and obligations as a means to create a path that represents himself more authentically, and widening that path for anyone else who wishes to do the same. When The Bohemian is in the Negative Pole, he is combative for the sake of being combative; taking stands without actually intending to follow through, puffing up like a peacock to display himself for defenses and a way to just hide. THE WARRIOR-WARRIOR is THE AGGRESSOR. This is the Warrior who is in a constant fight for his life, for something, for someone, and he cannot rest. This Facet tends to come up when there has been a long stretch of oppression, imprisonment, or some other form of confinement either across lifetimes or earlier in the life. He comes up swinging because he has to. When The Aggressor falls into the Negative Poles, he is exhausted, broken, refusing to acknowledge any wins or successes, and even as he is being lifted in celebration, continues to swing and try to hit. THE SCHOLAR-WARRIOR is THE EXPERT. This is the Warrior who "knows his shit." He can fix things, he is tireless, and he is direct and to-the-point in getting things done, or communicating. When The Expert falls into the Negative Poles, he behaves as if "he is the shit." He knows better than you do, dismisses your input, and even if he feigns to consider your input, he will continue to do exactly what he was going to do anyway. THE SAGE-WARRIOR is THE SURPRISE. This is the quiet Warrior who keeps to himself just how wise he is and then springs it on you when he knows you can hear him. He will do his best to bring levity in the place of your not listening, sneaking in a chance to connect through humor and play. Despite his cover as a goofball, he is surprisingly realistic, practical, and down-to-earth. When The Surprise is in the Negative Poles, he can suffer from crippling shyness, extreme frustration with being ineffective, unheard, and not being taken seriously. It matters deeply to this Warrior that you listen, and when he feels he is not heard, he can shut down, and even shut you out. Permanently. THE PRIEST-WARRIOR is THE WINNER. This is the most-competitive of the Warriors and his intent is to win. Not necessarily against you, but with you, or for you. If the win is for himself, it must be on his own terms. He seeks for himself and others to earn and sustain respect and to show results for efforts in this world. He will hold himself and you accountable for your actions. When The Winner is in the Negative Poles, he begins to blame. He blames everyone and everything for his lack of win, and if you are struggling in your life, then it must be your fault. The Winner becomes the sore loser. THE KING-WARRIOR is THE HARD WORKER. This is the Warrior who perseveres, pushes through, and goes that extra mile to ensure that the job was done properly and well. If it, or you, are worth his time and energy, then it or you is worth the highest quality of that time and energy. This is the devoted Warrior who does not give up, and can find workarounds and solutions that make the best of obstacles. When The Hard Worker falls into the Negative Poles, he just becomes frantically busy, keeping himself occupied with something, anything that will hopefully give his life a sense of direction and meaning. This can be one of the Facets who most needs the benefits from breaking down and crying. THE 7 FACETS OF SERVER THE SERVER-SERVER is THE DRAMA QUEEN/KING. This Facet of the Server has the Sage beat in terms of "everything" being a drama, struggle, ache, pain, struggle, and you will not escape without hearing about it. This Facet tends to come up when the Server has been invisible for far too long and has proclaimed her every right to EXIST, even if that means pointing out all of the pains of existence. When The Drama Queen/King falls into the Negative Poles, she is a mess. She is no longer just proclaiming her state of existence, but becomes so defined by her pain, struggles, and woes, she stays there. THE ARTISAN-SERVER is THE BOLD ONE. This is the Server who is not afraid to break from traditions, to move in unexpected directions, and to use creativity to resolve problems or beautify her path. When The Bold One is in the Negative Poles, she can simply be eccentric, odd, and "the crazy lady" down the street who barks out her views. She is most distrustful. THE WARRIOR-SERVER is THE QUIET LEADER. This is the Server who gets you going, moving, and guided without your even knowing it. She can help lead the way, even if from behind. She knows the best paths, and she can get you where you need to go without your ever even asking her to guide you. When The Quiet Leader is in the Negative Poles, she no longer leads, but pushes. She can be disgusted with your lack of capacity to pick up on her cues, signals, and direction. She thinks you are stupid. THE SCHOLAR-SERVER is THE PRACTICAL ONE. This is the Server who seeks to enlist the physics of elegance by maximizing the return with the least amount of investment. She moves through life in a way that is willing to flow, idle, and even remain still, as long as she is comfortable, content, and happy. There are very few conditions to be met in the life for this Server to be happy, and she helps you to understand that you can be happy in this practical way, too. When The Practical One falls into the Negative Poles, she is horrified at any prospect of moving too fast, moving too unexpectedly, being thrown a curve, or in any way moving her at a pace that is not defined on her own. Anyone and anything that tampers with her comfort zones is deemed a threat and they are either quietly evaded, or directly confronted. She expects that everyone should already know what her needs and boundaries are, because she is very clear about them on her own. THE SAGE-SERVER is THE MINDFUL ONE. This is the Server who already knows you. She has sized you up and can assess you in a few moments of your expressions. She then adapts to this and finds a way to communicate with you in a way that you can hear, and that she can be most effective. When The Mindful One falls into the Negative Pole, she becomes frantic for you to know who SHE is because she already knows you. You need not chime in. But you do not know her, so she will now proceed to make certain that you do. She talks AT you, not TO you, and when there is no one to talk to, she feels she disappears. THE PRIEST-SERVER is THE NOBLE. This is the Server who has a keen sense of ethics, "right and wrong," and the nuances of navigating these things. She is very sensitive to your boundaries and is willing to circumvent anything that might trigger you, all for the sake of helping you to wake up at your own pace and to see the bigger picture at your own pace. Her integrity is high, and honesty is tantamount to the sense of valid nurturing. She will tell you the truth, even if it hurts, but only if that truth is going to help. When The Noble is in the Negative Poles, she plows into your life with standards that even she cannot live up to. She is brutal in her honesty, even if it does not serve you, and she defends any negative effects with a stance of righteousness. THE KING-SERVER is THE HUGGABLE ONE. This is the Server who is magnetic, affectionate, and does not shy from contact. She is personable, inviting, and knows that human contact is essential for vitality, networking, and a sense of well-being. When The Huggable One falls into the Negative Poles, she is the "huggable cactus." Yes, she can still be approachable, inviting, and personable, but she becomes prickly, might simply pat you on the back, and is not really interested in your affections. She becomes quite strict about who can be close to her and who should be kept at a distance. She no longer recognizes affection as an expanding life force, but experiences it as a sapping of her life force.
  4. June 6, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel The 7 Methods of Choice [Includes additional channeling after the chat for clarity and detail] [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand the topic to be that of what we would refer to as the “7 Methods of Choice”. There are 7 methods of choice. This does not mean they are in any way hierarchical, but rather that they are as distinct and available as any Overleaf or Role, even more so. This information is not to complicate the experience of Choice, but to help bring understanding to the varying methods that you may find are your personal preference, or to find more appropriate methods to suit your circumstances. Though these methods can be said to relate to the Roles, Goals, Modes, etc., they are by no means as binding as your Overleaves, in terms of defining you. Though one may find that a predominance of certain Overleaves, impact of Role, Casting, etc, MAY, and we stress MAY, lend influence toward a default, this default is not defining or binding. In other words, you ALWAYS have a Choice as to how you CHOOSE, and you are always choosing. We will begin with the most Neutral of methods, which would be Passivity or Surrender. This method of choice is quite simply concerned with observing the unfolding of life from the most passive of stances, much like a scientist observing an experiment. This method of choosing usually has the fragment not touched by the impact or effects of life so much as the fragment is in awe of it, for better or worse. When a fragment uses this method, he can sometimes appear to be apathetic or indifferent, which MAY be the case, but many times, they are simply fascinated in ways that are difficult to describe on a daily basis. Scholars, and the Assimilative Overleaves, can lend this influence on a fragment. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Awe and –Apathy. This method of passive choice is helpful in situations where true surrender is important. This kind of surrender can mean a profound recognition in differentiating what you CAN control and what you just CANNOT. An example would be the awe and thrill of being caught in a rainstorm without any protection. Another may be in the throes of an illness that is terminal. In any case, this kind of surrender can be profoundly liberating. We note here that the older the soul, the less inclined it will be to remain with these basic defaulted influences as inclined by Role, Casting, and Overleaves, but he will learn to choose all methods as are appropriate to every occasion. The Inspirational methods of Choice are Impulsion and Compulsion, as we have mentioned in recent exchanges with you. To use Impulse as a means of choice means that you are able to assess situations, anticipate them, and make intuitive choices without necessarily having tangible evidence as to its impact. Servers, and the Ordinal Inspirational Overleaves, lend this influence on a fragment. Following Impulses means making choices based on primarily internal navigation, using “gut instincts”, “following your heart”, using intuition. This means of choice is good for times when a perpetual movement in the life is felt, but the path ahead is unclear. Using Impulses can get you in the “right place at the right time”, to find your Agreements, Karma, and generally synchronize your life to a more practical inspiration for you. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Enthusiasm and –Urgency. To use Compulsion as a means of choice means that you are able to navigate based on more pressured influences from within and with tangible feedback from external sources. Where Impulses are quiet and inviting, Compulsions are pressing and pushy. Compulsion is difficult to manage, if that compulsion leads to experiences that do not feel good, or are simply for escape. The healthy means of using Compulsion as a method of Choice is in realizing that a Compulsion is a broader message, or influence, that comes in as a means to seriously alter the life. In most cases, those who use Compulsion either find a repetitive means of escaping the messages, through addiction, for instance, or they create behavior disorders to short circuit the more useful aspects of Compulsion. Compulsions are to be used in circumstances, as we said, when the life is need of a great change, not necessarily as a means for daily decisions. Priests and the Cardinal Inspirational Overleaves lend influence in this direction. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Revolution and –Repetition. Creation and Maneuvering are the Expressive methods of Choice. Creation is the act of literally bringing into fruition the reality of your desire. This can be done through many mediums, such as visualization, dread, worry, anxiety, and beliefs. Creation is the method most useful when wanting to bring something into reality that has no evidence of being available at the time of wanting. Creation, of course, is an influence from the Artisan and Ordinal Expressive Overleaves. This method of Choice can truly seem magical, and the concept of “miracles” comes from this method in many cases. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Manifestation and –Meditation. Maneuvering is a method of choice for fragments who assume the honoring of all other creations, and one finds a means to incorporate those realities into one’s own. This is not necessarily passive, but it is definitely, highly interactive. Those who use this method are usually in positions of counseling, guiding, teaching, entertaining, etc., and as such, you can see the Sage and the Cardinal Expressive Overleaves have an influence here. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Anticipation and –Prejudice. The Action methods of Choice are, of course Active and Reactive. The Active method of Choice is the rearranging of your reality with what you have, making it into something more to your liking. It is a more authoritative, participatory, responsible means of bringing about changes. Action methods are used when what you have in your life is just in need of direction and arrangement. This method then relates to the King and the Cardinal Action Overleaves. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Management and –Exploitation. The Reactive method is the method of finding the stimulation from your reality eliciting responses from you, rather than you eliciting responses from it. This is a method used most when reality is acceptable, but in need of being sustained or “protected”. It is a method of insurance, whether the reality is healthy or not. This then relates to the Warrior and the Ordinal Action Overleaves. The Positive and Negative Poles are +Sensitivity and –Irascibility. Of course, there is much more, as usual, to elaborate on these methods of Choice, but we feel this is an acceptable introduction. Although you will always have the ability to choose any of these methods of choice, you can examine your own defaults by assessing the amount of influences in your own Essence and Personality Profile. Simply look at your Overleaves and the Axes they fall on, and relate them to the methods of Choice relative to that Axis. Looking at your Role, Goal, Mode, and Attitude can reveal your most common and comfortable methods of choice, which will have been used within their spectrums between Positive to Negative. Looking at your Primary Centering and Chief Features can reveal those defaulted methods of Choice that tend toward the negative poles.
  5. May 21, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor THANKS TO MaryBV for Moderating and Transcribing! [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. The format tonight appears to be set in the “open floor” context, so we will simply open the floor and begin taking your questions as they come. You may begin. We do not have any comments to begin with. [MaryBV] I would like to know if there are any combination of Overleaves that cause people to be tardy for things, i.e., those perpetually late people. [Michael_Entity] Though there can be many factors involved, it is usually the effects of the “exalted” Overleaves that creates a lack of linear perception of Time. Ordinality is usually “closer” to comprehending Time and its implications, since Ordinality is more focused. This is not completely consistent, but it is a factor to consider. The primary Overleaf determining the experience and utilization of Time is the ATTITUDE. Exalted Attitudes can become quite “lost” in the restricted frameworks. Many who have an Exalted Attitude with a self-karmic situation to contend with concerning Time will create a challenge through the Chief Features of Martyrdom and Impatience. This will create the wonderfully-charged issues around Time and Space for them. We would think many would assume that the more exalted Roles might have “trouble” with Time, or that the more Inputs an Essence has, the more trouble they might have, but this is not consistent and is surprisingly more of the opposite. Those with One Input (Warriors, Kings, and Scholars) will have more trouble with Time than other Roles. Priest and Servers will be next, and Sages and Artisans having the least. Again, this is not a rule, but a reference. We have observed that those with one input are more likely to have trouble “multitasking” or “shifting gears” as they create routines and schedules to accommodate life. Those with more Inputs can gauge Time while they function on other levels. What we have mentioned in our response are just suggestions, not answers. Observe these for validation, if you choose. It is a place to start. [Nick] Is there a method that can be used to become more creative? [Michael_Entity] There is never a time when you are not being Creative. What most are asking when they ask such a question is, “how can I feel more alive?” Determining the context in which you are trying to specifically channel your creativity is a first step. This can be done by noticing what it IS that makes you “feel alive.” Therein lies the clues to what you may have “inside you” longing to take form. We believe understanding your Role in Essence is a good place to start. Each Role has a basic NEED to create and a default Creation. PRIESTS and Servers NEED to create Inspiration, with the Priest defaulting to Guidance in the Positive and Steering in the Negative; Servers with Nurturing in the Positive and Manipulation in the Negative. Sages and Artisans NEED to create Expression, with Sages defaulting to Fun in the positive and Turbulence in the Negative; Artisans to create Structure in the Positive Pole and in the Negative, Stricture. Kings [and Warriors] NEED to create ACTION, with Kings defaulting to creating Progression in the Positive Pole and Enforcement in the Negative; Warriors creating Cohesion in the Positive, while creating Protection in the Negative. Scholars NEED to create ASSIMILATION, with Transformation in the Positive and Consumption in the Negative. There are many words to choose from to capture the spectrum from positive to negative in terms of anything, but these words are accurate to their point. Knowing your Role will give you, at least, a context to get started in permitting yourself to FEEL the creativity that is “natural” to you. As with many questions asked in an “open floor” forum, we will only be able to touch partially on the vastness of what is possible to explore. [ShannonB] I'm asking this for a friend, so I hope I get the gist of it right. Up to what point do roles remain significant or cohesive? Do Cadres have roles, or do the fragments in them retain their roles? [Michael_Entity] Although the Roles will remain a part of Essence throughout an entire Cycle, Essence Roles remain meaningful only as long as there are attachments to the individual Personalities in differentiation. To help explain: Essence as ROLE is the functioning aspect of “you” that is geared toward experiencing division/resistance, while CASTING is geared toward experiencing union/surrender. Essence as ROLE will “think” of all of its incarnations in the way a mother may think of her children. This sense of regard for all of the Personalities experienced lasts through the Causal to some degree. Up to and through the Causal, ROLE will be a reference, though less and less. Upon graduating the Causal, (and even while experiencing the Causal Plane) Casting becomes your primary reference. Once an Entity is entering the Causal, the experiencing of all of the Personalities shifts to a far more united mind, so to speak. Once the Entity begins “thinking as one,” (again, so to speak) only your position within the Entity is then referenced. Entities do not have Roles, though a predominance of Roles does give each Entity a “flavor.” Your ROLE is what you came to incarnations to make “shine” and “manifest,” while Casting is what you simply ARE. To put it another way, you will find that you PLAY your Role, and LIVE your Casting. [JNelson] Michael has mentioned that it is one of their agendas to redefine the current context of the educational system. Would Michael care to elaborate? [Michael_Entity] It is not a primary agenda as we have come across in some of our channeling and channels, but it is an impact we have chosen as our context in most of our incarnations in other parallels as a Transcendental Soul, so this “spills” into our parallels as a nonphysical teacher as well. We believe the incorporation of comprehending the various learning natures of each Essence could do greatly in healing much of the intellectual divisions on your planet. Currently the schooling system is geared toward the methods of Scholars, Warriors and Kings, though the Personality Overleaves may concur or not. Artisans, Sages, Priests, and Servers have no means to learn in a way that is conducive to them. Because of their fluidity, they can manage, but there is a toll. We believe it not to be GOOD WORK to identify children as Roles and start them along an education geared toward that Role, but rather allow the children to gravitate toward and define their Role as they discover it, making all forms of education available in some form at least through the age of 7. It will be obvious early on as to what direction a child may gravitate. Currently, all education before the age of 7 is geared toward the four Roles that are then “left out” as “formal” education begins. We would be willing to outline our entire concept of this in a session focusing on this topic, but this is a glimpse at our basic premise. [Dewliet] Hi Michael – Since I’m due with my second child in July, I was wondering if you could give me some tips on pain management and/or other aspects of childbirth, including techniques and medication that might not be covered in traditional texts? [Michael_Entity] Most of these techniques and medications or meditations for that matter, have been covered. There have been many births on your planet. Ourselves, having given birth hundreds of thousands of times, found that chewing on licorice root relieved a great deal of stress during labor, while the pain was found to be surprisingly easily forgotten. You have medications now that we did not have, and while we do not wish to affect your choice, we do believe enduring the “natural” pain is worth the health of the child. Many children have been given birth while the mother is under heavy medication and the results are not conclusive or consistent, so this would be your choice to use them or not. In your case, we see your knowledge that it is a passing pain, however lightly experienced or difficulty endured, will help. There will be a “knowing” in you that will be calming. This is not a prediction, but rather a comment on your nature. If you look at most of your most painful and difficult changes in your life, most mothers can see a parallel in their birthing. In your case, regardless of what appears, you have a calming knowing that it will pass and you are safe. [Annette] I know that there are special cameras that photograph the aura, and I have witnessed and photographed pictures with shapes, shadows/clouds, and orbs in them 11 days after my father passed away. Are these guides or spirit entities and can you comment on why we are able to see them like this? Are they making attempt to communicate? [Michael_Entity] The Kirlian Photography is a special technique, while flash photography is simply flash photography. Kirlian Photography allows you to see the bioenergetic (etheric) fields of your body in much the same way that iodine allows certain photography to see into the body. In the case of Kirlian Photography, there is a high frequency, electrical charge run through the object to help amplify its energetic emissions. Any camera that is used to photograph the “aura” that does not include the electricity running through the object is simply an EMULATION or simulation and is invalid. They are the equivalence of a kaleidoscope, to some degree. In Flash Photography, there is validity to much of what is seen as a paranormal phenomenon. Much of what are seen as “orbs” are actually microscopic dust particles in that moment, amplified by the flash. When the images are valid, they are not necessarily consciousness trying to communicate, but rather energetic emissions in the environment. When mourning is involved, the emissions can be great. Much of what are valid orbs, in the case of mourning, are merely the releasing of energetic “pockets,” if you will, that allow the fragment passing to “gather themselves.” Letting go of someone is most literal in mourning, even if the fragment being “let go” is still incarnating. Though some patterns are a form of consciousness, most are not, at least in terms of guides and spirits. If a “guide” or “spirit” is able to be photographed, then it is not of Essence, but of Personality as it is attached to the object of interest. That would mean they are not actually guides or spirits, but more like “echoes” of living aspect of themselves. [Annette] How do you know the difference then? [Michael_Entity] Again, another topic that we will not be able to exhaust in this forum. In being able to tell the difference, if there is a consciousness involved in those terms, dreams are more likely their medium of exchange. We dare say that Spirits and Guides (as we know the term) do not hover mid-physical making pretty lights. [JNelson] Would Michael care to outline the ways in which various Roles in Essence learn? [Michael_Entity] In another chat or as a topic on your list, as the time constraints on this session will not permit. We will add, before leaving, that looking at the Needs of Creation we outlined in the beginning will help in seeing the different learning methods. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
  6. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 011308 [Michael Entity] : Hello to everyone. We are here. We've been asked to expand on the Overleaves in a way that might add more "dimension" and context for the practical use of the Overleaves, and we can do so. What we have shared about the Overleaves, in general, is "just the beginning." What we will share with you today is how these Overleaves "show up" in the basic contexts of your daily existence. What we will share is a way to be more aware of the Overleaves in a way that can be observed and then that overleaf can be more consciously utilized in other contexts where it might not be so obvious. We will start with the Goal. If you have ever wanted to observe your Goal in effect most clearly, this Overleaf is most obvious in the context of your EXTERNAL LIFE. By this we mean that this overleaf is what you use as your motivation behind all of your choices that are in relation to the external world, to life, in general. Within that context, it could be said that the Goal is the Overleaf that describes what you reach out for in the world in terms of experience, or more precisely, the Goal describes what you wish to bring back with you from your experiences. It does not ultimately describe HOW, or IF, but it does describe WHAT. For instance, if your Goal is Acceptance, this means any experience that is taken from your day can be traced back to that particular Goal and you would do well to see how this describes WHAT you sought in your choices throughout the day from the general contexts of your external life. It could be said, then, that the Goal resonates to the Moving Center and the Action Axis. We share this axis resonance with you as a foundation for future information we have to share, as well, because we will eventually go through each Goal (and mode, attitude, etc.) and what each overleaf means in light of this information. We also share these resonances, not only for future reference, but for your further exploration on your own as you draw connections and cross-references throughout these resonances. We will also include here that the Goal could be said to be your method of entrance into the world in terms of PROJECTS. In this case, we mean "projects" as a key term to help simplify the general point of your motivation for reaching out into the world of experience in the first place. Next, we will share about the Mode. In terms of the Mode, then, it could be said that the Mode is your entrance into your world of RELATIONSHIPS. If you want to fully understand how your Mode manifests, it can most easily be seen in the context of Relationships, or more specifically, in the world of INTIMACY. In this case, we would define "intimacy" as being your method of resonance to something beyond you. This is why the Mode is often described as "how you go about reaching the goal," because your relationship to experience (your Goal) is still a relationship, which is then described by your Mode. The Modes resonate to the Emotional Center and the Inspiration Axis. The Mode resonating to the Emotional Center implies accurately that Modes are about PERCEPTIONS, which greatly affect your interpretation of OTHER in relationships; Perceptions being the Positive Pole of the Emotional Center. Furthermore, the Modes' resonance to the Inspiration Axis will help shed light on the dynamic required for INSPIRATION and how that works for each of you, which we will discuss in future sessions about the Overleaves. It should be noted, as well, that we do not limit these Overleaves' resonance to the Lower Centers, but include the Higher Centers, as well, though we wish to focus on the Lower only for the sake of tangibility and practicality, not because the Higher Centers are excluded. In other words, it could be said that the MODES are how one might eventually manifest LOVE in the life, or the Higher Emotional Center. In addition, the GOAL might be how one could be said to manifest BEAUTY, or Energy, in the life, as it resonates to the Higher Moving Center. By "beauty" and "energy," in this case, we mean that one brings about a sense of pattern to experiences and begins to see this pattern as perfect and beautiful, not as random and chaotic, or imposed. Next we will speak of the Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be your entrance into the world of COMMUNICATION. If one were to see how this most displays itself, it is usually most prominent in the realm of SOCIALIZING, or any realm of exchanging information. The Overleaf describes how one communicates to others through the primary personal philosophy one has chosen for the life. It also describes how one LISTENS, or hears, in terms of Communication, as it is quite difficult to communicate outside of your personal philosophical stance. In other words, if one is an Idealist, it could be said that Communication is primarly going to lean toward the philosophy of IMPROVEMENT. It does not mean that one cannot exchange outside of that philosophy, but that when an Idealist is fully present, then communication is bent toward that philosophy, steering all expression and reception through the Ideal. The Attitudes, then, resonate to the Intellectual Center, and the Expression Axis. By association, this also means that the Attitudes describe how one communicates his or her TRUTH, as the Attitudes resonate to the Higher Intellectual Center, as well. It could be said then that all communication passes through this overleaf as a means to help evolve, question, develop, transform, update, etc. the concepts of Truth for the life. In that respect, one can see how this Overleaf can tend to be the most obvious in social situations, as that context can quite often bring to light how one expresses his truth, hides it, or protects it. Next, we will speak of the Role. The Role could be said to resonate to your INTERNAL LIFE. This is who you are "at the end of the day," when alone, and "catching up with yourself." This is the part of you used to make sense of "it all." This is the part of you that digests and stores the experiences, the communications, the intimacies of the day, year, and life. Remember that ESSENCE and ROLE are two very distinct terms, though they are used interchangeably, easily. This is why we speak in terms of "Role in Essence," as the Role is an overleaf that the Essence chose for the cycle of lifetimes. The Role resonates to the Instinctive Center and the Assimillative Axis as this is the part that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It could be said to be the Overleaf that asks at the end of the day, "what does all of this mean to me? how does all of this contribute to my evolution? why did I make the choices I made?" This is also the very primary level from which ALL of your choices are made, whether in Projects, Intimacy, or Communication. The Role is from where you draw your consciousness as it grows from Experience, Relationships, and Socializing. And so it could be said that this is also the part of you that you bring TO your day; the constantly-refreshed version of you for the new set of experiences explored within the next day, month, year, and even life. Differentiating these contexts and how each Overleaf is showcased in these contexts can help bring about an awareness that one might not have had, before, in terms of grasping how his overleaves work in the day-to-day. Upon exploring these contexts, you can also look at where one might have "issues" or how one might resolve "issues" related to that particular context of life. For instance, if one is missing Intimacy within the life, one would look to the Mode for insights into how one might find resolution to the issues connected to intimacy and relationships. If one is feeling a lack of participation in the world-at-large, so to speak, and feels a lack of energy, an increase of frustration in the life, looking to the Goal can help in bringing insights into how to bring one back into a conscious participation again. If one finds oneself rejecting or uncomfortable in social situations, it could be of help to explore the primary truths, the Attitude, as a starting point for what motivates this division. We could go on with many different paths of examples, but we believe this will be a good starting point to offer within the time frame available today through this channel. We will include here that we have more to say in terms of how the Body Type, Centering, and Soul Age play into this, but these will be discussed in future sessions. [AnnH] : I am having trouble understanding how the assimilation axis overleaves operate in this context. Ex. my mode is observation: How does clarity vs. surveillance work in terms of relationships? [Michael Entity] : It could be said that, in terms of relationships, you are divided from the other, observing from a distance, removed, never truly intimate, but "surveilling" when functioning from the negative pole. In the positive pole, it could be said that you are able to drop the division between you and other and truly grasp his, her, or it's presence in relation to you. In other words, you allow OTHER to be seen and included in your vision, your clarity, rather than through a metaphoric plate glass window. When in Surveillance, yes, you can smile and nod and even make "googly eyes" through that window, but Other is never truly able to be seen clearly, to be present for you, to be within reach of true intimacy, because you are "keeping your eye on him, her, it," which, ironically, does not allow for as much clarity as one might think, because without allowing the Other to be fully present, you do not have all of the information available. For simplistic purposes, it could be said that Observation Mode is either at-a-distance, or up close (negative, and positive poles, respectively). We remind you that the entire spectrum described by an Overleaf is available to you and while the positive poles "feel" better most of the time, and allow for manifestation of Essence, it is also valid to utilize the negative poles as part of your experiences of a life as Personality. [Kathryn41] : How is casting incorporated into this scenario? Is it more reflective of 'essence's nature apart from the role and other overleaves? Does it even count as an overleaf, or is it more of the innate nature of essence? [Michael Entity] : We would not consider "casting" to be an Overleaf, but you are correct in seeing this as more reflective of an innate nature of Essence. Casting describes a mathematical relationship of your Essence relative to other Essences, and this does affect the Essence (and by extension, the Role) greatly, but not within the contexts we have shared today. However, we will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored within your days, and we will get to that in future discussions, if it chosen for pursuit. As a quick response, we will say here that the Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. We already know this is a topic of interest and intend to delve into this with those of you who are interested. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
