  1. مایکل: 4 نکته کلیدی وجود دارد که میتوانند مشخص کننده این باشند که چقدر با ذات هماهنگ هستید. 1. یکی این است که تا حدودی بدانید شما در امان هستید. به این معنی نیست که کورکورانه در کوچه های تاریک قدم بزنید و ایمان داشته باشید که بلایی سرتان نمی آید. بلکه به این معنیست که صرف نظر از اینکه چه اتفاقی بیفتد، بدانید که پایان راه نیست. همیشه فرصت ها، مسیر ها و احتمالات بیشتری وجود دارند و هستی شما همچنان ادامه دارد. درک اینکه شما امن هستید به این معنی نیست که صدمه نخواهید دید. به این معنی است که می دانید بعد از اتفاقات بد چیزهای بیشتری وجود دارد و شما هم وجود خواهید داشت. 2. دو این است که زندگی را دوست دارید. مجبور نیستید از زندگی خودتان خوشتان بیاید، اما در کل زندگی را دوست دارید. شما وجود داشتن را دوست دارید. احساس سرخوشی و هیجانی که در کشف کردن رمز و راز هستی وجود دارد را دوست دارید. 3. سه این است که دیگران را دوست دارید. ممکن است همیشه "همه" را دوست نداشته باشید، اما در کل دیگران را دوست دارید. از آنها دوری نمی کنید یا متنفر نیستید. و دیگران و جهان را به "تغییرناپذیری" محکوم نمی کنید. می توانید احساس عصبانیت، ناامیدی ، عشق، طرد شدگی و غیره را داشته باشید و همچنان از دیگران خوشتان بیاید. 4. و در نهایت، شما کنجکاو هستید. می خواهید بدانید که بعد چه اتفاقی قرار است بیفتد. می‌خواهید ببینید که آیا می‌توانید تغییری ایجاد کنید یا نه. اشکال ندارد اگر از آینده خبر نداشته باشید اما درباره آن کنجکاوید. درباره زندگی، خودتان و دیگران نتیجه گیری قطعی نمیکنید و آنها را محکوم نمیکنید. و به دنبال کسب دانش و تجربه های بیشتری هستید. این چهار نکته می توانند به شما کمک کنند تعیین کنید که چقدر ذات خود را پذیرفته اید، اما همچنین نشان میدهد که در چه زمینه هایی ممکن است بیشترین مشکل را داشته باشید. برای مثال ممکن است دیگران را دوست داشته باشید اما زندگی را دوست نداشته باشید. میتوانید به طور هفتگی یا ماهانه به این موارد نمره 1 تا 5 بدهید و هماهنگی خود با ذات را تا حدی ارزیابی کنید. اعداد را باهم جمع کنید و سپس به 4 تقسیم کنید. برای مثال، اگر مجموع 15 شود، با معادله (15 / 4) * 20 میتوانید درصد تجلی ذات خود را به دست آورید.
  2. Excerpt from a private session on May 15, 2018. Jeroen: I have been deeply desiring to manifest Essence more in my life and often invite my Essence in. How do you think I am doing with manifesting Essence? MEntity: There are 4 key considerations one can make when assessing how aligned one is with Essence: One is that you to some significant degree know that YOU ARE SAFE. This does not mean you walk blindly through dark alleys and count on blind faith for protection. It means that you accept that, regardless of what happens, there is more to happen. Knowing there is more to happen means knowing there are more possibilities, directions, paths, forms, probabilities, opportunities, and continued existence. Knowing You Are Safe does not mean that you will not hurt or be hurt or harmed. It means you know there is more after that and that you will be there. Two is that you LIKE LIFE. You do not always have to like your life, but you LIKE LIFE. You like Existing. There is a sense of euphoric and terrifying thrill in mystery of your existence and you like existing. Three is that you LIKE OTHERS. You may not always like everyone, but you LIKE OTHERS. You do not avoid them or hate them or condemn them or turn "the world" into a monolithic population. You are able to allow yourself to be angry, frustrated, disappointed, loved, rejected, etc. and still LIKE OTHERS. And finally, you are CURIOUS. You want to know what comes next. You want to see if you can create what comes next. You do not mind not knowing but you want to know. You do not draw conclusions and condemnations about life, you, others. You stack knowledge and experience and are open to adding more. These four keys can help you to determine not only how embracing you are of Essence, but also in what area you may be struggling the most. You may Like Others but do not Like Life, for example. It can be helpful to rate your degree of alignment with each of the symptoms above by using a 5 star rating system with 1 star being least present and 5 stars being most present. Add these up and then use that number to divide 4. For example, if the tally adds up to 15, then the equation is (15 / 4) * 20. This will give you a percentage that can give you an idea of your general degree of Manifestation. ### end of excerpt You may discuss this content within the original post. See Intellection Centers, Objective Truth.
  3. From a Private Live Chat - February 28/17, channelled by Troy '...This was meaningful on many levels, not just by synchronicity, but by design. This was what was immediately requested. The Personality who is your Mother "sat" with you as part of her transition and took notice for the first time the awe of your creation and life. It was a chance to listen in a way that was not limited by memory, space, time. It was pure Essence Recognition that the Personalities embraced. It was a new memory that helped "replace" what was felt to have been briefly lost to age. The Personality had built tremendous constructs of defense that began to break down over the life and allow the innocence that was "buried" to have sight and hearing again for the first time in many years. As that innocence was regained, it was of great concern that the cherished memories from the perspective of innocence would be lost, and that the defensive, closed self would regain control. Upon death and realization that consciousness persisted, it was of great importance to "sit" with that which her innocence cherished most in the life, even if it had been lost to defenses and walls during the life...’
  4. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: March 2009] [Question] Thank you, Michael & Troy. Can you share any thoughts on learning to better allow essence manifestation through music? Similarly, any observations on how to enable/allow essence contact through music as a vehicle for healing/self-healing for the people involved? [Michael Entity] One way to help manifest Essence through music, whether in sharing or in creating, is to understand the PART of your Centering. The PART is how “you” most easily and habitually bring yourself out into the world, into manifestation. Centering can help one to understand how one experiences music, while the Part can help one to understand how this music represents one in the world, whether in creating or sharing tastes. Emotional = fluid, non-linear, vocals as instruments; Intellectual = structure, patterns, lyrics; Moving = beats, rhythms, tribal; Each of these elements will be found in most music, but we are answering the question as to how one can manifest Essence through music, so we delineate here to help explain. For those CREATING music, then this is easier to understand as one emphasizes what one is creating, so the fragment in the Intellectual Part might be more inclined to manifest Essence through compositions that are structured, patterned, and with lyrics. For those SHARING music, this general information can help you to understand how best to manifest your Essence in the music you share with others, so that the fragment who is in the Intellectual Part can share Essence through songs that are catchy and express stories about oneself. When dealing with music as a form of healing, then the CENTERING would be best to consider. So that the Emotionally-Centered fragment does well with listening to fluid, non-linear, and vocalization in music. And so forth. Again, most music will have elements of two or more centers, but listening for what is emphasized can help you to determine your Essence music and your Healing music. This is a highly generalized response to accommodate the format, but it is a start.
  5. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (Part 3 of 3)] Note: This entire set of sessions is highly recommended. [Michael_Entity] In our sharing with you our various perspectives of what is and isn’t being conscious of Essence, we believe a practical examination of each Essence Role would be beneficial. In our examination we will share what we perceive are the Maya (or Great Lesson) of that particular role and a more ‘organic’ approach to determining what might be considered rejection of Essence or what might be considered acceptance of Essence. We will note here that the positive and negative poles of the Essence ARE NOT indications of being conscious or accepting of Essence. A fragment in the Negative Poles is just as potentially “in Essence” as a fragment in the positive poles, at least in terms of experiencing its life. What we have sought to exchange with you is what it means to reject Essence or accept Essence as part of your primary being. Those who reject Essence are in deep isolation and a myriad of other traumatic or deteriorating experiences, regardless of how together their life appears or how wonderful their work and relationships and successes are. Those who are accepting and conscious of Essence usually have the enthusiasm to ‘make the best of everything’, even in the midst of what ‘should’ be devastating. Poverty, drama, accidents, horror are NOT signs of disconnection from Essence, they are merely experiences. A positive pole role can still be at its apparent ‘best’ yet still be disconnected from Essence. A negative pole role can be as difficult and trying as expected, and be conscious. The keys are in the act of Decisions and CHOICES. In the moments of your darkest despair, if you can “look up” and recognize that this space is simply where you are at the moment, even if you seek no resolution beyond that realization, half of your battle is completed. When you say “yes, this is where I am right now, I know I could do something but I do not feel like it right now”, you have granted yourself an open door to Essence. Acknowledging your state of mind, your resistance, your struggles, etc. are in that very moment your decision and choice to allow or change, you become immediately centered and present, regardless of your choice in either direction. This will immediately and in that moment connect you consciously to Essence. This does not mean your mood or situation will magically remove itself from your life, but you have opened your world and option for greater probabilities by that single choice, a millionfold. Besides your initial acknowledgment that you may have dropped your connection to Essence, we will say that the most powerful and profound choice you can make next is to ASK FOR HELP. The body is not designed to sustain animation and life without connection to Essence for any extended period of time once sentience has moved in. We want to note at this point that there is no REAL disconnection from Essence; we merely use these terms for convenience, even the term ‘rejection’ is inaccurate in light of the truth, but these terms capture the experience and we will continue to use them with this understanding. We will begin now with each Essence, but first, we will pause for a few questions, if there are any, about what we have shared thus far. Therefore, each Essence will have its “Great Lesson” and this ‘lesson’ will always recur each lifetime in some form. There will be no lifetime that does not struggle with this ‘lesson’, however briefly. Regardless of the dynamics of personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges, though it is seen from a very different perspective and eagerly played with. This results from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane while being Astral. The body has to regain consciousness each lifetime regardless of soul age and seeks to grow back into the soul age last reached in the previous life. We will address the SCHOLAR now. The Scholar that is connected to Essence and conscious has learned its Great Lesson, which revolves around the reality of shared love. This Scholar has realized with a great amount of profundity that they will not love another until they have sought to love themselves. As we have said, there are many of these Role symptoms you all may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see they are a deeper lesson when specifically considered. All other Roles have an “easier” time at loving and being loved than the Scholar does. The Scholar who is connected to Essence has realized they are whole and complete, that they like themselves and have decided to trust and open their hearts to their life. They recognize that ALL aspects of life are capable of being loved, even themselves and all the hard times passed through. When the Scholar is disconnected or rejecting of Essence, they do their best to ignore their lives, to resist the examination that not everything is fine. This Scholar refuses to examine their vulnerabilities and have not dealt with their shadow feelings, resulting in acts of dominance or power struggles. They have never experienced intimacy of any depth due to these things. They become adept at arguing their points, ignoring the pains of their past, destroying or deteriorating any relationship or person whom touches too closely too personal areas of pain and sensation. They are Stubbornness manifest. They, more than any other Role, truly fear what is called love. The disconnected Scholar can still bring in a definite resource of love into their lives, but this is usually sought only out of need for refuge, a place to securely hold up the walls around their own hearts. The Scholar disconnected from Essence can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love them. Some suggestions for bringing more of Essence in might be to talk to children about their perspective on life, actually play with children or play on a child’s playground. Seeking laughter of any kind brings Essence immediately back in for a Scholar. Seeking the experience of the aroma and visuals of botanical gardens or observing the ocean can help, or having flowers within visual and olfactory range.
  6. November 6, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Chat – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your questions and as we understand it, Lori is first. [upstaate] I am asking for a Mini Energy Report for this month. [Michael_Entity] November marks the middle of the cycle emphasizing the processing of this year’s Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance on a collective level. This means that you have entered the psychological season, so to speak, which will allow the processing of the fears that are collectively generated in response to “inadequacies” and “vulnerabilities.” In most cases, this season of processing the collective fears is not done intimately, but played out in politics or larger-scale events. In this season, the emphasis on inadequacies and vulnerabilities has been glaringly evident in American politics. Even the concept of “Democracy” is being scrutinized to the point of revealing the absurdity of its lack of true implementation and weak points. There is a “quiet storm” brewing in the American (north) politics and November appears to be a pivotal month in defining how that will play out publicly. We are not speaking ominously, but simply stating the obvious: revelations are on the horizon and they will occur with grace or they will occur with tragedy, but probabilities show that they WILL occur; more specifically, a “domino-effect” of infrastructure collapse in what you call your current government (in the United States). When we state that that this “will” happen, we realize this word implies solid prediction, but we say that word in response to a 97% probability. In other words, the momentum is in place, regardless of how drastic a change might be made at this point, and is headed toward a “wall.” It is highly likely this momentum will hit that wall. At this time, we simply do not see your current President of the United States completing his term. We can also state this with some amount of unusual certainty because of the anticipation of those in the Astral; “all eyes” are focused for “the show.” To summarize the “mini-report,” then, in terms of world events: it appears most of you will find some kind of impact at some point as a result of the inadequacies and vulnerabilities being revealed within the current government of the United States. The pivotal period of time appears to be during this month, November, but the public results may not be obvious until later. On a more personal note, you may find yourselves walking through a period of time now wherein the flaws of OTHERS seem to be taking their toll on you. Distractions with the failures of OTHERS may be used to your advantage as a means to avoid your own flaws and vulnerabilities. This year's passage through the season of Chief Features appears to have a stronger emphasis than usual. A great many things have happened in the world over your year that have left the public angry and in want of finding someone to blame. Some years move through the Chief Feature season with ease and other years are buried in its emphasis. This year's months of October, November, and December may find each of you with at least one major challenge involving how to maneuver through the effects on you because of another person's choices or actions. It is a powerful opportunity to explore your own Overleaves, how you respond to the flaws and choices of others as they impact you, and doing this from the angle of the positive poles and make a shift in the dynamic that would normally leave you trapped. Regardless of your own Chief Features, there will still be an emphasis around you in relation to the year's chief features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. The end of your year is always a passage through the evaluation of what you accomplished in the time that has passed since beginning of the “new year.” Therefore, November usually marks the painful passage of time wherein COMPARISONS begin to be your means of assessing your days. We suggest keeping check on your own Chief Features as you begin to find yourselves comparing. Comparing is a valid process of evaluation, but many of you use it against yourselves or against others. Reminding yourselves that it is a TOOL for use, not for abuse, will help in the month ahead. [Annsge] Deciding whether to follow up Lori's question….What are the probabilities of a complete change in government? What will this change expose? [Annsge] In US gov't? [Michael_Entity] The probabilities of a complete change are nearly inevitable, though most likely not fully implemented before another approximate 50 years. However, the current administration is precariously built in a way that as one member is: pulled into scrutiny, the entanglement from that person reveals other flaws, creating a near-cascade effect in revelation. The long-term change will be based on the exposure of a corrupt government whose impact upon the public is far more insidious and oppressive than ever considered possible. This is not sinister, but merely a result of withholding and hoarding of resources that have always been available. Much of what are concerns in the American culture and society are concerns that are utterly reversible within a single year, if resources were freed. The short-term change for which we see November as being pivotal is simply the revelation about the incompetence, manipulation, and deceit that permeates the current administration. We have always seen this presidency as the pivotal presidency that has the potential to end an outdated system of government, voting process, and public assistance. [Tmk1802] Back to basics. Is Male/Female ratio constant or does it change from life to life? [Michael_Entity] It is a constant. What changes is the ways in which this is expressed and the ways in which it is eventually balanced. The higher ratio is a good indication of how your incarnational process began, as Male bodies are 100% Male Energy and Female bodies are 100% Female Energy; therefore, if your ratio is higher Female, it is fairly safe to say that you began your incarnations in the bodies most comfortable. As the Essence evolves, so does the want for balance, so choosing bodies to counter your higher ratio begins at some point. Eventually, bodies are no longer the only means to bring balance and expression, but Events, Relationships, and Experiences are utilized. [Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself? [Tibtyk] And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious. [Michael_Entity] The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.” In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved. The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof. However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake. Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough. Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love. Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence. Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.” It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens. In all cases of experimentation YOU will be key. You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK. You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO. And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you. [llawryf121] I've posted more detail over on the forum, but basically — what does it mean to “awaken the lightbody”? [Michael_Entity] That would be a phrase that is not one we would use, with the definition being relative to those who would use it. We suggest seeking definition with that context. In many cases of its use, we see that it is a more glamourous phrase to describe a process of owning the energy that is yours and using it in a way that we would describe as Good Work. In our system, then, it could be likened to the True Personality. Or Manifesting Essence. The fusion of Personality and Essence into a cocreative process. We believe that may help find a bridge between the original context for that phrase and how it might be translated into our system. They are the language of glamour [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively [Michael_Entity] Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar. [Carrot Wax 1] k, now my question has changed to extend this question to Sages and other roles :-) [Michael_Entity] The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality. This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible. In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him. The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.” Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak. The walls that isolate the Scholar are in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.” Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories. For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas. How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed. We have already addressed this issue in a lengthy session in the past, offering insights for all Roles. We will include that in the transcript for this session. In that case, we believe we have addressed Matthew's question for elaboration, and will respond to Suz's question as the final question. [Note: In lieu of adding the transcript mentioned, here is the link: Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3)] [freyaisissuz] We would like comment from Michael about exactly what is a secondary conscious channel with an agreement with Michael. Thanks [Michael_Entity] We are unclear as to what your question is. [freyaisissuz] What does Michael say is a ‘secondary conscious channel’ so students will better understand the concept? [Carrot Wax 1] is there a context this term was used in? [Michael_Entity] We do not recognize the phrase as being a part of our teaching, though one of our channels may have chosen it as a means to convey a concept. [freyaisissuz] It is information given to Al by a Michael channel. [kittlekats41] can you rephrase it Al? [llawryf121] probably should follow up with the original channel [upstaate] it was channeled that Al had an agreement with the Michaels, using the phrase, “as a secondary channel” A fragment will have an agreement to be a primary channel. What is a secondary? secondary conscious channel, that is [kittlekats41] would ‘conscious channel’ mean as opposed to a trance channel perhaps? [freyaisissuz] That's how Al understood it, Kate. [Michael_Entity] We would suggest asking that channel, as this phrasing did not originate with us. We suspect this is a phrasing used by our channels to describe a fragment with whom we have agreements to channel through, but not on a largely, public scale. It is not uncommon for certain phrasing to be generated by the channel as a means to convey a concept we have not created phrases for, ourselves. [freyaisissuz] That makes more sense, he doesn't care to go back to the previous channel. [kittlekats41] Would you have time perhaps to elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? freyaisissuz: Excellent, much better phrasing, Kathryn – Al [Michael_Entity] We do not have time, but that is simply the nature of our plane. [kittlekats41] hehehe of course, silly me:-) [Michael_Entity] We will conclude here, but include a response to that final question for the transcript. [ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO FINAL QUESTION] (Disclaimer from Troy: I am asking this question as best I understood it, but I am uncertain if I conveyed it to Michael in the way the questioner meant it.) Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? [Michael_Entity] We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.” “Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only primary philosophy. “Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students. “Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy. “Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy. “Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time. “Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself or herself. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us. “Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material. In some cases, there is overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student. Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.
  7. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence, Part 3] MEntity: We will address the PRIEST now. The Priest who has a connection to Essence realizes that life is full of many truths and each experience has its own truth. More than any other role, this role when connected to Essence has a deep and profound trust in life, knowing with true perception how to pass through the next moments and lead others through those confusions in life as well. Life is intuitively navigated. When disconnected, this Essence lives in a world of concepts and ideas, rational thinking and over-analysis. This would normally seem harmless, but the Priest disconnected from Essence enforces these rationales, ideas, and over-analysis to the point of destroying the life or misleading others as a means for false validation of beliefs. They lose their ability to adapt to the nuances of life and seek only to remain in a predefined, structured, and thought out picture of life. This removes their ability to intuit and trust in life, but creates severe judgment and enforcement of fear. This Role more than any other Role can make a lie become a profound but false truth about themselves, life, or others. They are Arrogance manifest. To help bring the Priest back into connection, we suggest to this Role more than any other to literally make time to communicate to what you consider to be your higher self, every day. We also suggest purchasing or making a set of cards with inspirational affirmations or a book of quotes that can be a “message” or “thought for the day”, or whenever in need, to help lend insight from someplace beyond analysis.
  8. August 3, 2003 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS (Online) – Energy Report with Q&A [MichaelEntity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as requested: It appears the more intense energy of June and July is waning as a lull is settling in. This comes after a great deal of physical and mental activity during June and July. As many of you already know the months of June and July brought with them a great deal of Clarity and Implementation. Most of our students dealt with some form of serious change during those months with some form of revelation being implemented. As we had mentioned in our previous report, it is not unusual to implement a serious change, but the difference was in the fact that so many of you participated in such an investment. After June’s and July’s activities and shifts, August should bring about some relief, some “down time”, a short break. For most of our students (especially those in the United States) calmness is moving through the collective consciousness, and while this is an opportunity to simply relax, most will find this calm to be unsettling and distrustful. Because this year is rooted in the energies of the Moving Center, it may be difficult for you to simply relax and peacefully go about the routines of your life right now. A momentum is in place and calmness may be difficult to settle into, even if only briefly. Even for those who are quite sedentary, you may be associated with another fragment who will keep you restless along with him or her. Our suggestion for the next 3 weeks or so is to take advantage of the calm, to make a decision that for at least one of the weeks, you will trust your life; you will simply do the routines of your day, and know that you are safe. For those who have made a major change in July or June, then August can be seen as a Maintenance month, continuing the implementation of your changes, getting comfortable after some of your personal shifts. In light of the opportunity to choose Calmness over the next three weeks or so, we will not complicate matters by elaborating the Energy Report too much. We already know that many of you will choose to follow your restlessness and that is as valid a choice as choosing to rest. We will help in your ability to consciously make your choice by stating that if you find you are choosing restlessness, or if you seem to not be able to relax even when you try, that you can help generate peace for even a few hours at a time by simply reminding yourself that YOU ARE SAFE. In most cases restlessness is due to some form of control issues, and if you let your guard down for “one second” things will “fall apart”. Many times those who are restless don’t even know what it is they worry about, but in many situations that worry is simply rooted in feeling unsafe. Those who “worry” to the point of being unable to relax are the same children who were usually punished in some way for behaviors deemed unacceptable. “Worry” and restlessness are only for superficial appearances then. As long as you are worried, or as long as you are restless, then even if you are judged, rejected, or reprimanded (internally or from external sources), at least your worry and restlessness will show you tried. This is not to diminish the very real worries of life, or the restlessness of certain experiences and bodily/hormonal fluctuations, but when a fragment feels he or she CANNOT choose against these things, it may be rooted in that lack of feeling safe. For those who choose to access and experiment with the energies available over the next few weeks, you can experiment with how often you can look at your life and say with trust and truth that you are safe. While the past couple of months helped support serious changes among most of you, this month’s energy can lend support in your reacquainting yourself with the “groove” of your life from the stance of Trust. We will now take questions from those who have them. QUESTIONS [infoloon] I thought virtually all children in this culture were punished for behaviors deemed unacceptable? [MichaelEntity] And the act of “worrying” is as pervasive. [Whillo333] Is the unsafe feeling from the unstable political and economic status of “the world” and the “fear” that seems to permeate society now? [MichaelEntity] It is actually rare that any older soul (Late Mature through Old) ever feels completely safe within the lifetime. Regardless of the state of any culture, society, country, or planet for that matter, the Older Souls have known many tragedies and have experienced many struggles these souls know all-too-well how easily a life can shift and change. Over many lifetimes the Essence gains experiences in managing these shifts and perils of the physical plane, but each lifetime also brings a new Personality that has never experienced death or struggle. [pitcoozer] That is a revelation – re: late mature and old souls .. and feeling safe. [MichaelEntity]This is a strange dichotomy that will eventually resolve itself as the Personality learns to access and trust what it considers its Essence. [pitcoozer] Explains a lot – the trust is like the candle blowing in the wind .. [Whillo333] Thank you. As an old soul, your comments are very meaningful to me. [MichaelEntity] As that dichotomy resolves itself, the Personality, while still being “new”, will not only find access to the memories of hardship and deaths, but also to the reality of the immortality of its Essence. [pitcoozer] Yes – alleviates the fear of death itself, and increases the zest for living and being .. [MichaelEntity] As we have said many times, but will say again, it is the Personality that “controls” the lifetime, not the Essence. While Essence can offer an overall theme to the lifetime, it is the choices and decisions of Personality that create the path of a lifetime. As each choice is made, Essence can “spin off” versions of that lifetime into “parallels”, allowing thousands of versions of the Personality to fulfill itself. [Whillo333] Can the 2 be at odds throughout the lifetime? [MichaelEntity] There will always be AT LEAST one parallel that will find resonance and recognition of Essence, following the original intent of the lifetime. There will almost always be at least one lifetime that completely rejects the notion of a soul and creates its own path. [Whillo333] In which case, what happens to the soul? [MichaelEntity] So, in answer to the original question, the sense of unsafety we speak of is that which is inherently a part of any life, especially of the older soul. Eventually, and as part of any final cycle of lives, the Personality and Essence become “One”, and a kind of “telescoping” of all lifetimes occurs, with all Personalities across time finally experiencing a sense of Home. In answer to your question, Whillo, the soul observes that lifetime/parallel and learns. [freyaisissuz] Wil’s que: Wil was channeled as having a secondary channeling agreement with Michael. A definition from Michael about a “secondary agreement” and how it differs from primary would help validate the contract for him and others. [MichaelEntity] Different channels will create different ways of describing our Agreements with us. Those who use “secondary” to describe an Agreement with us would usually be describing the seeking of direct contact with us for personal reasons, along with the ability to offer that contact to personal circles of friends or family. A “secondary” Agreement would not include any pull to “go public”, while a Primary Agreement may not only involve publicity, but the use of the Agreement as a source of income. [schleiv] How can we learn to trust the action of just letting your day go by. How do you know its right to just let it flow? At times I feel this, when doing my art but later, I think I could have been much more productive, where does the trust begin and the uncertainty end? [MichaelEntity] As with most distrust, it comes from speculation, not valid perception. Trust begins when you can learn to differentiate and choose between Speculation and Valid Perception. When you are in the middle of your day, trusting, flowing, and generally feeling synchronized with your life and Essence, it can safely be said that you are in a state of Trust. At the end of that same day, upon reinterpretation, you may then find yourself speculating, extracting upon retrospect all of the things you could or should have done; therein lays the source of your distrust and worry. Whether in speculation before or after an experience, you will always find ways that you could or should have done something. The ability to learn and evolve comes with a “double-edged sword”, meaning that along with that ability to evolve, you also have the ability to extract possibilities/probabilities that could/would have worked better or differently. [emberton@…] Thanks Michael, here is my question: If we find ourselves permeated by worry and fear-of-letting-go during this period, what method(s) or technologies do you recommend to facilitate a break in this pattern, beyond what has been mentioned previously? [MichaelEntity] We only suggest making the attempt to consciously choose Trust and to do so with the knowledge of why you may have difficulty doing so. There is no other way to truly make the choice. The most profound method of choosing Trust/Safety is in the simple act of STOPPING. By this we mean to literally stop moving, stop fidgeting, stop thinking about anything distracting, even for one minute or 30 seconds, and stating with as much gentleness as possible… “I AM SAFE. THERE IS NOTHING MORE THAN ME AND MY CHOICES RIGHT NOW. I AM SAFE.” Taking 30 seconds to feel safe and to choose trust can have a calming effect on the body and mind for at least an hour or so. We suggest stating the words once, gently and with as much truth as you can, and HEAR THEM. Repeating them over and over may create a reaction from your Instinctive Center that something is wrong and requires trying to override reality. So state the words calmly, plainly, sweetly to you, and listen to how they sound. It would do you well to understand that the words being stated will not change your life. Instead, they will be words that invite a new perception, which can then change your experiences of your life. Taking those moments to invite the perception, allowing more conscious and loving interpretations of the lifetime, lead to more conscious and loving choices. [H2OSprtlvr] Do you suggest that August is a good month to review personal fears such as with interpersonal relationships? All fears, I suppose. [MichaelEntity] Any Month is always a “good month” for any introspection. In your case, it may actually be a “good time” to give yourself a break from your constant internal scrutiny. While we are not suggesting you choose against your own inclinations, we will say that some of your solutions you seek can be found by not “looking so closely” at the matter at hand. You are submerged in an experience that could be benefited from a bit of distancing from it. The past few months were for such close scrutiny and clarity. August could be used to say, “Why did I ever think anything was ever wrong?” This does not mean you have to dismiss any responsibilities you feel inclined to work through, but it can help you make clearer, gentler decisions and Choices. Modern lives are not wrought with Survival as many of your past lives have been, but are wrought with “Improvement”. The greatest “improvement” you can make on any life or relationship is in freeing yourself from assuming there is some conclusive improvement to be reached. You will ALWAYS “improve” and we have yet to have seen any end to our potential evolution. We quote the word “improve” because of its being a misnomer. There is only Evolution. “Improvement” is relative. Relationships, internally and externally, will ALWAYS Evolve, which may be seen as an Improvement or not. [Anla899] What are ways to synchronize personality and Essence on a day to day basis? [MichaelEntity] There are three very simple and effective ways of synchronizing Essence with Personality: Writing to Essence, Talking to Essence, or Meditating to Essence. [Anla899] How do we do those? [MichaelEntity] Most fragments assume that Essence “knows all” about the lifetime being lived, but that is not the case. Essence only “knows” what YOU inform it of, which is why some lives can seem to spiral out of control, reaching a point where crisis is the only time the Personality seeks to contact its soul. Essence can only experience your life THROUGH you. There are moments within the life called “Instinctive Review” wherein the Personality “uploads” the experiences of the life to-date and Essence can then help to direct the life, if the Personality will allow it. Otherwise, it is up to Personality to keep the lines of communication clear and up-to-date. Keeping any form of a journal, whether daily or weekly or monthly can help keep Personality and Essence in contact and more united. For journaling, simply write about your life, stating clearly what it is you seek to change, stating clearly about areas in which you believe you would like help from Essence. Keep a log of your dreams and observe the changes you are recording by looking at patterns in your days, your choices, and reactions, dreams, etc. Keeping a journal is like remaining gently conscious of what it is you want, need, and keeping Essence included in that. Some of you may benefit from simply speaking out loud to Essence, treating this part of you as an actual “invisible friend” who is humorous and caring. State to your Essence occasionally how you feel your life is going, asking for help, or giving gratitude when it is felt. This can be done as ritualistically as prayer or as playfully as making comments throughout your day. And finally, some may be inclined to use Meditation for continual contact with Essence. We say Meditation as it includes any practice of focus whether through calming of the body and turning inward, or through running, exercising, doing a puzzle, etc. In those instances of Meditation, however you choose to meditate, remember to invite your Essence to access your Instinctive Center where all experiences are stored. These three methods can keep Essence continually updated and your life continually synchronized, instead of having to go through startling revelations during the scheduled Instinctive Reviews. [Additional information: Michael explained later that the reason for writing, speaking, or meditation, rather than just random inner dialogue, is not only due to the fact that those three methods engage all of the Lower Centers, but that they also help refine what it is you wish to communicate, rather than all of the random worries, fears, anxiousness, etc.] [schleiv] how often are those reviews? [MichaelEntity] Val, the Reviews are approximately every 7 years, with the major reviews around the ages of 28 and a 56.
  9. Traduction d’une causerie avec l’entité Michael à New York, le 26 janvier 2014 Source anglaise : https://our.truthloveenergy.com/topic/111-20140126-nyc-michael-speaks-wants-needs-of-essence-roles/?tab=comments#comment-208 Entité Michael (EM) : Bonjour à tous. Nous sommes maintenant ici. Nous avons compris que Troy nous demande de discuter de ce que nous pourrions décrire comme les DÉSIR et BESOIN de chaque Rôle de l’Essence. Nous avons abordé cela d’une façon qui nous l’espérons sera facile à valider pour chacun de vous et des Rôles. Cet angle d’approche des Rôles en termes de désirs et de besoins a déjà été abordé de différentes autres façons mais aujourd’hui nous allons en parler spécifiquement dans ces termes. Nous allons définir le DÉSIR d’un Rôle comme étant une forme de navigation plus consciemment accessible tout au long de votre vie. Indépendamment de votre But, de votre Pôle positif et du reste de vos Attributs, il sera toujours un facteur déterminant pour vous tout au long de votre vie. Plus particulièrement, plus vous serez en contact avec votre Essence, et en contact avec votre Rôle, plus il se manifestera. Il sera probablement présent indépendamment du degré de conscience que vous avez de votre Rôle, mais il sera peut-être d’autant moins évident que vous serez moins conscients de votre Rôle. Nous savons que votre Rôle-moulé sera probablement quelque chose que certains d’entre vous voudront considérer pendant que nous aborderons les Désirs et les Besoins, et il peut être pris en compte, mais nous suggérons que vous vous en teniez au Rôle de votre Essence pour déterminer le niveau de puissance et de pertinence des Désirs et des Besoins. Le Rôle-moulé aura toujours une certaine pertinence mais nous suggérons que vous utilisiez votre Rôle comme une façon d’explorer ces Désirs et Besoins pendant que nous les décrirons. Nous définirons les Besoins comme une forme plus subconsciente de navigation tout au long de votre vie. Ainsi, comme vous devenez plus conscients de ce que vous voulez dans la vie, il y aura toujours des Besoins qui seront le pendant dans votre navigation. Vous ne pouvez pas fonctionner au cours de votre vie, sur le plan de la navigation, seulement en désirant. Et, en matière de Besoins, vous ne pouvez pas non plus laisser cela seulement à votre navigation subconsciente. Éventuellement, l’individu dans sa globalité va reconnaître, jusqu’à un certain point, ses Désirs et ses Besoins. Quand nous décrivons les Besoins pertinents à votre Rôle, cela ne veut pas dire que vous devez les amener à un niveau conscient sur une base régulière. De simplement les connaître et de valider que c’est une forme subconsciente essentielle de navigation pour vous, peut grandement vous libérer dans vos expériences et votre navigation tout au long de votre vie. Vous n’avez pas à faire de travail supplémentaire pour que ces Besoins soient comblés. La différence entre les Besoins et les Désirs c’est que vous aurez tendance à chercher à combler activement les Désirs. Les Besoins seront comblés d’une façon ou d’une autre. Souvent, s’ils ne sont pas pris en charge et reconnus, les Besoins seront comblés d’une façon négative ou difficile. Donc quand vous évaluerez vos Besoins pendant que nous les décrirons, examinez votre vie et voyez si vous pouvez voir un patron dans votre histoire qui montre comment le Besoin a été comblé, d’une façon négative ou positive. La même chose vaudra pour les Désirs ainsi que pour la poursuite de ce que vous voulez. Parfois cette poursuite se fait d’une façon positive, et par cela nous voulons dire d’une façon qui est bénéfique à vous et toute autre personne impliquée; et parfois d’une façon négative, d’une façon qui vous désavantage ou qui vous comble si superficiellement que vous en voulez encore plus. Ceci nous amène au point que ces Désirs et Besoins sont une forme permanente de navigation. Il n’y a pas de « ligne d’arrivée » où ils seraient comblés. Ils seront comblés seulement jusqu’à un certain point et ensuite ils vont se transformer pour devoir être comblés à de nouveaux niveaux. Il n’y a pas de fin à votre poursuite, et pendant que nous décrirons les Désirs et les Besoins, et que vous examinerez votre vie et vos expériences par rapport à eux, vous pourrez voir comment dans le passé, ils ont été comblés de façons différentes de ce que vous pourriez vous attendre à ce qu’ils soient comblés maintenant. En passant, ceci est vrai pour tout dans notre système. C’est pourquoi il peut y avoir sept Buts partagés par des milliards de personnes et poursuivis d’une multitude de façons pratiquement illimitées à cause du facteur du choix et de votre individualité unique. Et ainsi en est-il des Désirs et des Besoins. Avant d’aborder les descriptions que nous pouvons offrir pour les Désirs et les Besoins des Rôles, nous allons vous demander si vous avez des questions à ce point-ci sur l’ensemble de la dynamique des Désirs et des Besoins en général. Commentaire : Je ne pense pas EM : Nous allons donc continuer. Nous allons commencer avec le SERVEUR et décrire les DÉSIRS d’un Serveur : Le facteur de motivation le plus conscient pour le Serveur est sa volonté d’être UTILE. Plus spécifiquement, d’être efficace. Le Server veut faire une différence. Pour ceux dont le Rôle-moulé est Serveur, cela peut se rapporter à vous, et en général, ces Désirs et Besoins sont pertinents pour tous. Mais quand il s’agit de votre Rôle, et si vous êtes exacts dans votre estimation, cela devrait résonner tout particulièrement pour vous, d’une façon profondément authentique. Pour les Serveurs qui écoutent ceci, cela devrait résonner comme tout à fait vrai que de vouloir faire une différence, être efficace et aider, est un facteur de motivation conscient dans votre vie. Ce que le Serveur a besoin, et qui motive subconsciemment sa navigation tout au long de sa vie, c’est d’ÊTRE AIDÉ, d’être touché, d’avoir quelqu’un d’autre qui fait une différence pour lui. Si vous connaissez un Serveur qui se sent inefficace, ne sent pas qu’il fait une différence, vous découvrirez souvent qu’il se débat pour combler le Besoin d’avoir quelqu’un d’autre qui le touche, l’aide, fait une différence pour lui. Souvent, il restera coincé jusqu’à ce qu’il permette que cela arrive ou jusqu’à ce qu’il navigue vers quelqu’un qui est suffisamment efficace dans sa propre vie. Être efficace et être touché ne sont pas des états en contradiction l’un avec l’autre et ne sont pas mutuellement exclusifs, et quand nous décrirons les autres Désirs et Besoins, cela s’appliquera à tous les Rôles. Mais si l’un est négligé plus que l’autre, il tendra à dominer votre navigation plus que l’autre. Nous allons maintenant parle des PRÊTRES : Ce que les Prêtres veulent et qu’ils sont le plus consciemment motivés sur le plan de la navigation est de GUIDER. Les Prêtres veulent Guider. Ils veulent diriger et orienter les autres dans une direction qu’ils considèrent comme étant la plus bénéfique pour un individu ou un groupe. Donc pour les Prêtres, ce que nous pourrions décrire en matière de Désirs, est le désir de GUIDER. Ce que le Prêtre a souvent besoin et par quoi il est motivé inconsciemment sur le plan de la navigation, est le DÉTACHEMENT, de prendre du recul. Le Prêtre a besoin de perdre l’investissement dans ce quoi il désire guider ou ce qu’il essaie de diriger. Quand les Prêtres comblent ce besoin de détachement, de prendre du recul, ils deviennent encore plus capable de guider. Pour ceux qui participent dans cette salle, sentez-vous libre d’intervenir quand nous abordons votre Rôle, que ce soit par rapport à la validation ou à des questions sur le Rôle. Les Prêtres dans la pièce : avez-vous des commentaires ou des questions? [Question] Est-ce que le détachement a quelque chose à voir avec les obligations personnelles ou l’attitude personnelle; cela veut-il dire que nous devons le prendre d’une façon moins personnelle? EM : Oui. Par détachement, c’est exactement comment nous pourrions phraser cela davantage : ne pas prendre les choses aussi personnellement; prendre du recul; se distancer; créer cette différenciation entre ce que vous guidez et vous en tant que guide. Parce que les Prêtres sont un Rôle inspirant, il est facile de confondre Projection et Réflexion. La façon dont nous faisons la différence entre ces 2 mots est que la Réflexion vous permet d’être empathique avec une autre personne ou un groupe. Elle vous permet d’avoir la vue d’ensemble et de vous voir dans cette vue d’ensemble. La Projection (ce qui est très facile à faire pour les Prêtres) est d’imposer une vision au groupe de sorte qu’il n’y plus d’implication de l’individu. Il s’agit plutôt de ce que le Prêtre pense être le meilleur. Donc, quand vous pouvez vous détacher, il est beaucoup plus facile d’accéder à l’état de réflexion où vous vous voyez réfléchis mais non projetés sur eux. Comprenez-vous la différence? Est-ce valide pour vous? [Commentaire] Oui EM : Nous sommes aussi ouverts aux questions que nous savons être disponibles dans le clavardoire si elles portent sur les Rôles. Maintenant nous allons parler des ARTISANS : Les Artisans sont consciemment motivés par le Désir pour l’ORDRE, la STRUCTURE. Il se peut que cela ne soit pas toujours évident pour plusieurs Artisans, mais ils s’efforcent toujours d’une façon ou d’une autre de mettre les choses en ordre, de garder les choses en ordre, de garder les choses droites. C’est surtout à cause des entrées multiples que possède un Artisan, de sorte qu’il devient essentiel pour l’Artisan de naviguer sa vie en gardant une forme quelconque d’ordre et de structure. Donc ils veulent ORDRE et STRUCTURE. Ce que les Artisans ont besoin et ce qui les motivent inconsciemment est la RECONNAISSANCE. Plus que n’importe quel Rôle – incluant les Sages, croyez-le ou non – les Artisans ont besoin de reconnaissance, ont besoin d’être reconnus, ont besoin d’être honorés d’une façon qui valide leur existence, et ce, encore plus que le Serveur. Nous pensons que c’est parce que les Artisans chevauchent sans cesse les forces créatrices qui sont malléables au-delà du tangible, si l’on peut dire, travaillant très soigneusement ou chaotiquement pour les amener dans une forme. Cette reconnaissance leur apporte de la rétroaction qui leur laisse savoir que ce qu’ils créent ou ce à quoi ils donnent forme est vu, est reçu. Y a-t-il des Artisans qui voudraient commenter ou valider ces Désirs et Besoins? [Question] Définitivement, je résonne avec ce que vous dites. Je me demande, au moins pour moi, s’il y a dans mon désir de créer de l’ordre, cette connexion émotionnelle inhérente … viser l’esthétique, viser la beauté. Est-il peut-être nécessaire, comme le Prêtre, quelquefois – afin de prendre la meilleure décision – de trouver un certain sens de détachement? Quand vous êtes si émotionnel, et que vous êtes personnellement engagés dans ce que vous essayez d’accomplir, vous perdez de l’objectivité, et donc vous avez besoin de vous en retirer. EM : Ce peut être le cas mais pas autant que pour le Prêtre, du moins dans le contexte de votre question. Dans le contexte de ce sujet et le contexte de votre question, nous dirions de vous tourner vers vos Besoins. Votre désir pour l’ordre a besoin d’être reconnu. Une fois qu’il est reconnu, une fois que la forme que vous avez fait émerger du chaos est reconnue, honorée et (vous n’aimez pas ce mot mais nous allons l’utiliser ici avec légèreté) respectée, il est beaucoup plus facile pour vous de laisser aller la nécessité de l’ordre. Il est beaucoup plus facile pour vous de faire de la place au chaos si vous sentez que la nécessité, le désir pour l’ordre, est reconnu. C’est seulement quand cela n’est pas reconnu, que cela devient plus comme une priorité, plus comme une défense et a plus d’importance pour vous. Comprenez-vous? [Commentaire] Oui EM: Nous voulons prendre le temps ici de dire que ces besoins peuvent aussi être comblés par vous-mêmes. Ils ne sont pas dépendants des autres personnes. C’est agréable quand d’autres sont capables de contribuer, mais vous n’êtes pas bloqué dans un méandre de votre vie attendant que quelqu’un vous reconnaisse. Vous pouvez vous apporter cette reconnaissance à vous-mêmes. Vous pouvez vous aussi reconnaître que vous avez apporté de l’ordre et que c’est magnifique, et que c’est assez pour le moment, puis faire de la place pour un peu de chaos. L’ordre pour un Artisan est l’équivalent de la Beauté, parce que la Beauté est à la base la reconnaissance de patrons dans le chaos, et dans le cas des Artisans, l’ordre est souvent la manipulation délibérée des patrons pour faire ressortir cette Beauté à partir du chaos. Comprenez-vous? [Commentaire] Oui EM : Donc pour répondre davantage à votre question sur le détachement et le recul : reconnaissez que l’ordre et la beauté que vous avez cherchés à apporter est actuellement là et non quelque chose que vous devez continuellement maintenir à tout prix. Cette reconnaissance est votre forme de « détachement ». Et si nous ne sommes pas clairs, sentez-vous libre de parler et de demander plus de clarté. [Commentaire] C’est clair EM : SAGES. Ceci peut sembler évident mais les désirs d’un Sage et sa forme de motivation consciente de navigation tout au long de la vie, est le désir de COMMUNIQUER. D’une façon plus élaborée, nous dirions « être vu » et « être entendu ». Nous préférons le terme « communiquer » parce qu’ultimement, ce n’est pas seulement être vu et entendu, c’est aussi entendre et voir. C’est de créer ce circuit de communication, cette expérience d’échange. Ainsi un Sage trouvera toujours, sous toutes ses autres motivations, et comme une fondation, ce désir de communiquer, d’être vu et entendu et de voir et d’entendre, d’avoir un véritable dialogue, un véritable échange. Ceci devrait être évident pour les Sages mais souvent ce qui motive inconsciemment les Sages, et ce qu’ils ont besoin, est l’AFFECTION. Plus que n’importe quel autre Rôle, les Sages sont les plus avides d’affection. Ils bénéficient le plus de la proximité physique, du toucher et des contacts. Cela ne veut pas dire qu’ils veulent que vous les caressiez sans invitation, mais qu’ils ont, et encore plus que les Artisans, de la difficulté à se sentir présent dans le monde. Ils peuvent sembler présents et ils peuvent sembler très conscients d’eux-mêmes mais c’est difficile pour eux de ne pas avoir une forme quelconque de contact physique, une proximité physique quelconque, pendant trop longtemps. Étreindre un Sage est beaucoup plus facile qu’étreindre un Roi. Quand le Sage reconnaît qu’il ou elle est motivée inconsciemment par ce besoin d’affection, cela peut l’aider à expliquer grandement pourquoi il gravite autour de certaines relations et certains scénarios. Même s’ils sont complètement hors de leur élément, mais que ce Besoin peut être comblé dans ce domaine, ou cette relation ou cet échange, alors ils vont graviter vers cela même lors de grandes conversations. Pour les Sages parmi nous : avez-vous des commentaires ou des rétroactions ? [Question] J’ai une question. Ainsi si peut-être vous sentez que vous n’avez pas ces choses, … attendez, laissez-moi organiser ma question. Ainsi il serait facile d’utiliser, par exemple, le sexe pour avoir de l’affection mais ce n’est pas vraiment une chose positive, et ce serait comme être dans le Pôle négatif, si vous le faites vraiment juste pour combler ce besoin? EM: Pas nécessairement. Votre jugement sur le sexe comme façon de combler l’affection, peut le rendre moins satisfaisant. Mais de reconnaître que vous pourriez graviter vers le sexe comme une façon de combler votre besoin d’affection va vous aider à faire des choix qui auront plus de significations pour vous sur le plan de combler l’affection. [Question] Je ne sens pas que c’est insatisfaisant. Je dis seulement que je me demande si ce n’était peut-être pas aussi positif ou qu’il y aurait une meilleure façon de l’obtenir. EM : Nous dirons que si cela tourne en quelque chose de compulsif qui ne peut pas être contrôlé et possiblement qui devient une forme de dépendance dommageable pour vous, alors oui, vous pourriez considérer que c’est une façon négative de combler ce besoin. Mais si cela apporte du plaisir, que ce n’est pas préjudiciable, alors c’est une façon valide de combler ce besoin. Nous voulons vous rappeler que nous avons dit que les nécessités d’un certain niveau de satisfaction vont changer avec vos progrès tout au long de votre vie et de l’évolution de votre poursuite de vos besoins et désirs. Ainsi, le sexe pourrait ne pas combler ce besoin d’affection à un certain point dans votre vie et vous pourriez avoir à soit vous en éloigner comme une source et chercher d’autres sources, ou devenir plus inclusif d’autres sources, comme littéralement vous tournez vers ceux qui sont proches de vous et étreindre plus et vous blottir plus. Nous ne parlons pas de l’affection comme seulement un toucher physique. Affection dans notre définition concerne la résonance, concerne – [Commentaire] L’intimité? EM : Nous ne dirions pas intimité dans ce cas. Nous dirons seulement résonance : vous aimez ceux avec qui vous êtes, vous aimez qui vous êtes quand vous êtes avec eux, ce qui est souvent différent de l’intimité dans ce cas. [Question] Le Type physique vénusien est aussi avide de toucher. Comment cela se distingue-t-il du besoin de toucher du Sage? EM : Ils ne sont peut-être pas différentiables. Il peut être difficile de différentier entre les deux. Cependant, le Type physique vénusien sera probablement plus enclin à l’évoquer naturellement qu’un Sage sans le Type physique vénusien. Un Sage sans ce Type physique pourrait être plus enclin à négliger ce Besoin. Nous dirions que si vous êtes un Sage avec le Type physique vénusien, vous aurez probablement plus de facilité pour combler ce besoin d’affection qu’un Sage avec un Type physique différent. Est-ce que cela répond à votre question? [Question] Est-ce que je peux intervenir? Parlant de Vénus … et en se référant à votre phrase « Étreindre un Sage est beaucoup plus facile qu’étreindre un Roi », qu’en est-il d’un Roi qui est du Type physique vénusien ? EM : Nous ne voulons pas trop compliquer ces combinaisons en allant à travers tous les Types physiques et les Rôles. Le Type physique vénusien tend à aller assez fortement dans cette direction, donc ce sera important pour le Roi, mais ce sera important d’une façon différente. Cela va apparaître d’une façon différente. Il y aura encore cette avidité pour de l’affection, ce désir pour de l’affection, mais ce ne sera pas nécessairement un besoin. Ce serait quelque chose qui serait plutôt abordée avec une approche contrôlante et stratégique ou maîtrisée. Comprenez-vous? [Question] Est-ce que l’avidité pour l’affection a un lien avec l’avidité d’appartenir, un sens d’appartenance? EM: Cela pourrait être une autre façon de parler ce que nous décrivions en termes d’être présent, oui. L’appartenance est un peu plus émotionnellement chargé que le terme « présence » dans ce cas par rapport à ce que nous essayons d’exprimer ici. Les Sages n’ont pas nécessairement besoin de sentir qu’ils ou elles appartiennent, mais souvent se sentent comme s’ils n’avaient pas une présence, qu’ils ne sont ni vus, ni entendus d’une façon qui les ancre. Nous ne pouvons pas penser à un mot plus approprié que « présence ». Appartenir pourrait être une partie de la dynamique de leur définition de présence, mais il y a un tout petit peu plus de charge émotive dans ce terme que ce que nous voulons exprimer avec le mot présence. Nous allons demander aux Sages si vous trouvez une différence entre être présent et appartenir, ou si vous sentez vous-mêmes la différence. [Commentaire] Oui. Je ne pense pas qu’il y a une grosse différence. Je pense que c’est très subtil parce que, sous certains aspects, je me sens comme si j’appartiens. Mais de rester présent quand je ne sens pas que j’appartiens est très différent, comme au travail ou quand je suis entouré de personnes familières par opposition avec ma famille proche. Il y a définitivement une différence alors. Je ne sens pas tellement l’appartenance mais je peux me sentir présent. [Commentaire] Je pense qu’il est plus facile d’être présent quand vous vous sentez à votre place dans un certain endroit. Si vous ne sentez pas que vous êtes à votre place dans une situation ou un endroit, alors je pense que personnellement, vous tendez à aller dans le futur ou le passé – à imaginer, vous savez? EM : Ce que vous avez soulevé pourrait être alors une extension de ce qui est requis pour qu’ils se sentent présents et ce pourrait être, dans certains cas, ce sens d’appartenance. La raison pour laquelle nous faisons la différence c’est parce que nous connaissons plusieurs Sages qui n’ont pas nécessairement besoin de sentir qu’ils appartiennent à un groupe pour se sentir présents. Mais il peut y avoir des circonstances où c’est un facteur déterminant. [Commentaire] Ouais, parce que je ne sens définitivement pas un sens d’appartenance avec les gens avec qui je travaille. Je veux dire que je m’en accommode mais je n’ai pas le sens d’appartenance d’aucune façon. Mais je fais définitivement très souvent un effort pour être présent. Pas 100% mais c’est plus demandant d’être présent là que d’être présent ici. [Question] Est-ce qu’être présent c’est un peu comme se mettre en valeur, dans le bon sens? [Commentaire] Non, c’est juste d’être complètement conscient dans ce moment, et présent dans mon corps. Et ne même pas me soucier si je suis en valeur, juste être présent. EM : En réponse à votre question, nous pourrions ajouter que la confiance peut être un facteur déterminant dans la façon dont un Sage peut se sentir présent. [Commentaire] Ouais, je n’en manque pas vraiment. [Question] J’ai une question en lien avec ce que Cyprus a dit concernant le sexe. Si un Sage ne vit pas l’acte sexuel comme de l’affection, va-t-il pouvoir combler ce besoin d’affection ? EM : Cela dépend de vous. Vous devriez trouver d’autres façons de le combler. Il y a une multitude de façons, dont certaines auxquelles nous n’avons probablement même pas pensé, et par lesquelles un Sage pourrait sentir que le besoin d’affection est comblé. Ce n’est d’aucune façon relié ou dépendant de relations sexuelles. Est-ce que cela a répondu à votre question? [Question] Hum, non. Je ne sais pas si je vous ai mal compris, mais je parle strictement de sexe, lorsque le sexe n’est pas un sexe affectueux, si c’est juste une expérience de friction physique, est-ce que le Sage voit son besoin d’affection comblé par l’acte? EM : Encore une fois, cela dépend de vous. [Comment] Il ne me semble pas que cela se pourrait. Je veux dire, que selon mon expérience, vous déterminez si le besoin est comblé ou non, ce n’est pas quelque chose d’externe. EM: C’est correct [Commentaire] Donc si vous n’êtes pas comblés par cela, alors ce ne sera pas satisfaisant. Je veux dire que peu importe ce que j’ai fait dans le passé, j’ai toujours aimé et cela a toujours été satisfaisant pour moi, donc je pense que j’en obtiens de l’affection. EM : Oui [Commentaire] Mais je pensais que les besoins dans cette conversation, dans cette terminologie, étaient une chose inconsciente. EM : C’est correct et nous pensons que votre réponse était dans votre propre question. Si vous décrivez cela comme insatisfaisant ou si ce n’est pas ressenti comme de l’affection ou vécu comme de l’affection, c’est probablement un endroit où vous cherchez mais ne trouvez pas. [Commentaire] D’accord cela a du sens. EM : Oui, c’est une prolongation de la masturbation si vous visez uniquement l’expérience de la friction. Cependant, la masturbation peut être une forme d’affection. Donc c’est uniquement votre vécu et votre sentiment de présence dans l’échange qui peut déterminer le niveau d’affection partagée. Y a-t-il d’autres questions ou clarifications sur la question qui a été posée? Maintenant nous allons parler des GUERRIERS: Les DÉSIRS du Guerrier, sa motivation et navigation conscientes peuvent être décrits … nous avons besoin d’un moment … nous examinions les différences dans les termes que nous pourrions présenter ici, et nous allons aller avec le mot ENGAGEMENT [NdT : commitment], bien que nous pourrions changer ce mot. Nous ne trouvons pas le mot exact que nous cherchons dans ce canal en ce moment. Cela pourrait aussi être « loyauté » mais c’est plus que ce que nous voulons dire. Donc nous irons avec « engagement » pour le moment. La motivation consciente, les désirs d’un Guerrier tendent vers l’ENGAGEMENT. Le Guerrier tend à un engagement complet : engagement envers une personne, engagement envers une cause, engagement envers des responsabilités. Ce désir ne se situe pas seulement sur le plan de leur navigation personnelle mais aussi par rapport à ce qui est attendu des autres : que l’engagement soit réciproque, un engagement mutuel. Si quelqu’un a un terme qui décrit l’engagement mutuel et qui nous aiderait à avancer plus succinctement, sentez-vous libre de parler. Nous allons le décrire ici comme un engagement mutuel. Ceci, en termes de Désir, est vital pour les Guerriers dans la navigation de leur vie. Ils iront dans des directions où ces engagements mutuels peuvent être comblés. Ce que le Guerrier a BESOIN et qu’il va inconsciemment tendre à naviguer vers, c’est l’HUMILITÉ. Les Guerriers plus que tout autre Rôle, tendent à tomber dans l'auto-questionnement concernant le niveau d’engagement qu’ils rencontrent dans leur navigation dans le monde. L’humilité est cette expérience qui les met dans une position pour évaluer plus précisément ce qu’étaient leurs attentes, ce qu’ils avaient anticipé, ce qu’ils avaient élaboré comme stratégies, ce qu’ils recherchaient. Donc, ce qu’ils veulent est l’ENGAGEMENT MUTUEL et ce qu’ils ont besoins est l’HUMILITÉ. Nous utilisons ce mot d’une façon spécifique parce que le Guerrier dont les attentes n’ont pas été remplies ou est en besoin d’ajustement peut souvent vivre cela comme le résultat d’un surdépassement ou d’un sous-dépassement en termes d’engagements mutuels. Quand ils se retrouvent dans cette position et que l’humilité est explorée et comblée, alors ils sont plus enclins à communiquer plus clairement ce qui était attendu, plus clairement ce qu’ils voulaient, et beaucoup plus clairement ce qu’ils voudraient apporter à cette relation d’engagement. Donc l’humilité les ramène dans une position de nécessité pour exprimer ou clarifier leur définition d’engagement mutuel. [Question] Est-ce que “support” pourrait être un mot qui pourrait être utilisé? EM: À la place de quoi? Engagement mutuel? [Commentaire] Engagement mutuel je pense. EM: Nous utiliserions encore “engagement mutuel”. [Commentaire] Coopération? EM: C’est un peu trop détaché. Il y a … [Question] Que dire de Soumission? Comment est-ce différent de l’engagement? EM : La Soumission, comme But, est la recherche de quelque chose pour quoi se dévouer, à prendre comme une cause valable vers laquelle se tourner. Donc, en ce qui a trait à l’engagement mutuel et la Soumission, il y a beaucoup plus une attente de réciprocité dans l’engagement mutuel que dans la Soumission. Est-ce que cela aide à clarifier? [Commentaire] Oui Ici encore si nous utilisons « dévotion » nous dirons « dévotion mutuelle » donc nous allons garder « engagement mutuel » pour le moment, bien que « mutuel » pourrait être associé à plusieurs termes différents, qui indiquent l’engagement, le support, la dévotion. La clé ici est la mutualité. Nous avons l’impression qu’il nous manque un mot, mais peut-être pas. Peut-être que c’est simplement que nous travaillons à partir du cerveau de Troy. Des questions ou commentaires sur les Guerriers? Ou de la part des Guerriers? [Question] Est-ce que le Guerrier a besoin d’éprouver l’humilité chez un autre ou est-ce l’humilité pour lui-même ou elle-même? EM : Ici aussi cela va dans les deux sens. Cela dépend. L’humilité peut être quelque chose de recherchée chez un autre ou de ressenti dans le soi … plus souvent qu’autrement, c’est en soi. Mais c’est aussi une forme de lien si un autre exprime ou montre au Guerrier une forme d’humilité. [Question] Pouvez-vous, svp, clarifier l’Humilité? EM: Dans ce cas-ci, nous utilisons ce terme pour décrire le besoin de s’approprier et de clarifier ses attentes et anticipations de sorte que l’humilité est ressentie quand ces besoins ne sont pas réalisés et que le bris de ce sens d’engagement mutuel entre en jeu. C’est souvent parce que les Guerriers ont oublié ou ne se sont pas appropriés, ou n’ont pas communiqué leurs attentes dans cet engagement mutuel. Alors ils basculent dans l’humilité. En d’autres mots, ils doivent en prendre la responsabilité. Ils apprennent à prendre la responsabilité de ces attentes, en termes d’engagement mutuel. [Commentaire] Ca ressemble à de l’humilité et du désappointement en même temps. EM : C’est une façon de le décrire, oui. [Question] A quel degré une EJ (essence jumelle) désincarnée peut-elle affecter le fragment incarné en termes de Désir et de Besoin? EM: Cela se peut. Nous dirions qu’ultimement vous allez vous tourner vers votre Rôle pour explorer ce sujet en laissant de côté vos relations avec les autres Rôles. Il peut y avoir des influences mais vous allez vouloir quand même regarder votre propre Rôle. Vous pouvez vous retrouver dans votre vie à naviguer sous l’influence de votre EJ mais ce ne sera pas votre navigation. Ce sera seulement une influence sur votre navigation. Donc retournez encore vers votre propre Rôle. Comme nous l’avons dit, tout ce que nous décrivons en termes de Désir et Besoin est probablement applicable à chacun de vous sous une certaine forme, mais quand il s’agit de votre Rôle, nous voulons trouver les mots qui vont résonner d’une façon profondément authentique pour ce Rôle. En d’autres mots, vous pourriez dire : « Je peux me retrouver dans tous les autres, mais, wow, cela a réellement du sens pour moi » Ensuite les ROIS : Les Rois sont consciemment motivés par le désir d’INDÉPENDANCE. Ils ont le sentiment qu’ils doivent l’avoir en propre, qu’ils doivent combler ce désir de différentes façons toutes associées au terme « indépendance ». Nous ajouterons que ce terme est souvent défini différemment parmi nos Rois, même parmi ceux de notre propre entité. Nous avons eu nos différences dans ce que nous considérions comme « indépendant », et c’est très souvent en fonction du contexte de la vie en cours. Mais les Rois vont tendre, comme une forme de navigation, à désirer combler leur sentiment d’indépendance, leur sentiment d’autosuffisance, leur sentiment d’être leur ressource primaire. Cela ne veut pas nécessairement dire qu’ils doivent le faire d’une façon isolée, mais ils le font souvent, se couper eux-mêmes des autres, comme une façon d’afficher ou d’exemplifier leur indépendance. Mais ce n’est pas nécessaire. C’est pourquoi leur BESOIN et ce qui les motive inconsciemment est l’INTIMITÉ. [Commentaire] Wow. Regardez cela. Une association avec les Sages! [Question] Je sens le désir d’indépendance et c’est quelque chose qui m’a rendu fou à cause de mon contexte étant jeune et à la charge de ma famille. Hum, ce facteur m’a même fait douter que j’aie terminé/quitté la troisième monade dans le Pôle positif. Mais vous avez dit qu’il n’était pas nécessaire que je me coupe moi-même? Parce qu’actuellement c’est ce que j’essaie de faire désespérément. EM: De vous couper comme une forme d’indépendance? [Commentaire] Oui. EM: Non, ce n’est pas cela… Comme nous l’avons dit, il y a différentes définitions de ce que signifie Indépendance. Mais, comme nous l’avons aussi dit, les Désirs et les Besoins changent avec le temps. Ainsi, le Roi réalise « Oh, je n’ai pas à me couper du reste du monde pour être indépendant. Oh, je n’ai pas besoin de couper toutes mes ressources pour être indépendant, mais plutôt, je peux utiliser mes ressources d’une façon qui m’est propre”. Elles deviennent un élément de votre indépendance. Elles deviennent une source de votre indépendance, un support pour votre indépendance. Elles ne contredisent votre indépendance d’aucune façon. Elles incluent votre indépendance. Et c’est pourquoi le rite de passage que vous décriviez – la 3e monade interne, qui concerne le processus de déclarer et posséder votre indépendance, votre autosuffisance, peut être réalisé pendant que vous êtes à charge, en autant que vous commenciez à prendre la responsabilité de comment vous utilisez ces ressources. C’est relié au sentiment de responsabilité de comment vous utilisez ces ressources. Le besoin qui va inconsciemment motiver le Roi dans la navigation de sa vie se traduit par INTIMITÉ. À l’instar des Chercheurs – pas plus et presqu’à égalité, ils ont beaucoup de difficultés à établir un sentiment d’intimité, permettre cette intimité, cette proximité à un autre, cette confiance en un autre. En termes de soi, cette intimité est aussi de vous permettre de vous connaître vous-même. Cette intimité n’est pas juste avec les autres comme nous l’avons dit, ces Besoins peuvent être comblés par vous-même. Souvent il y a un déni de soi dans le processus de la vie, et donc les Besoins vous ramènent continuellement à expérimenter, à vous forcer – non pas par des forces externes mais simplement dans les termes de votre navigation, à vous mettre dans des situations qui vous forcent à apprendre plus sur vous-même, vous connaître et vous accepter. C’est ce que nous entendons par intimité dans ce cas. Ce n’est pas seulement d’être proche d’un autre mais aussi d’être intérieurement aligné et proche de vous-même. Comprenez-vous? Est-ce que les Rois ici résonnent avec ces Désirs et Besoins? [Commentaire] Oui [Question] Est-il commun que les Rois aient de la difficulté à établir une intimité parce qu’ils veulent être indépendants et qu’ils voient ceci comme le reflet d’une dépendance à quelqu’un d’autre? EM: Oui. Ils peuvent les lancer l’un contre l’autre. « Avoir trop d’intimité veut dire que j’ai trop de dépendance ». Ironiquement, une des meilleures façons pour les Rois de devenir plus indépendants est de permettre la dépendance. Le Roi, pour ce qui a trait à sa manifestation de l’Essence, doit reconnaitre sa part comme incluse dans la dynamique de la vie et non comme séparée de la dynamique de la vie. Ils ne sont pas une île mais une composante de la communauté. Quand les Rois s’approprient que leur sens de l’indépendance et leur sens des ressources est aussi dépendant de leurs échanges avec les autres, de leur reconnaissance des ressources valides, leur reconnaissance et délégation appropriées autour d’eux – c’est la définition de la maîtrise. C’est là que la maîtrise vient aux Rois, quand ils sont capables de ne pas seulement le faire seul, mais d’avoir reconnu qui peut le faire avec eux. [Question] Y a-t-il un élément négatif à être un Roi quand vous pourriez être très résistant ou défensif aux rétroactions ou aux critiques constructives? Vous pensez « Je peux trouver par moi-même”, et, d’une façon négative qui est de l’auto-défaite, vous ne voulez pas accepter ce que les autres personnes ont à dire qui pourrait en fait vous aider? EM: Oh nous nous rappelons ces jours-là. Oui nous sommes aussi coupables de cela dans nos incarnations. Plusieurs d’entre nous sont morts pour ces raisons, essayant de « trouver par nous-mêmes » et ne permettant pas l’apport de d’autres sources. Nous avons dû apprendre à faire confiance – et ce serait un autre terme que nous pourrions utiliser à la place d’ « intimité », vous êtes motivés par ce besoin de faire confiance. Vous avez BESOIN d’avoir ce niveau de CONFIANCE comme une forme d’indépendance, parce que vous devez faire confiance à ceux autour de vous, à ceux qui vous fournissent et contribuent à votre vie d’une façon qui vous importe. Vous devez faire confiance à cela. Ainsi les Rois vont se retrouver souvent dans des positions où ils défient le concept de confiance, et défient le concept d’intimité/confiance, questionnant leur niveau de confiance et la confiance des autres. Cela peut devenir un problème dominant dans la vie. Est-ce que les Rois ici reconnaissent ceci? Pour être plus spécifique à votre question, nous ne dirions-pas que c’est nécessairement une chose négative que de dire « je veux le faire moi-même ». Cela devient une chose négative si cela vous fait du tort, ou si le refus du support ou de l’apport d’un autre ne vous permet pas de faire ce que vous voulez faire. Comprenez-vous? [Commentaire] Oui [Question] Nous avons parlé du Rôle versus le Rôle-moulé plus tôt et Troy a déjà dit que sur une base quotidienne nous faisons comme une projection ou démonstration de notre Rôle-moulé, et que le Rôle vraiment brille quand tout est comme aligné. Par rapport au Roi, ironiquement, est-ce que les Rois, peut-être, finissent par briller quand elles ou ils obtiennent des autres l’aide dont ils ont besoin ou font confiance aux autres pour ce qu’ils ont besoin de faire confiance, parce qu’ils ne peuvent pas prendre soin de ces choses par eux-mêmes. Et quand ils ont accordé leurs violons, si l’on peut dire, ceci permet à leur essence d’être manifestée et alors ils peuvent briller. Et parfois ils se nuisent parce qu’ils ne pensent pas qu’ils ont le droit de demander, et donc ils ne brillent pas. EM: Vous parlez des Rois? [Commentaire] Je parle des Rois. J’applique ce que nous avons parlé plus tôt à ce Rôle particulier des Rois. EM: Oui. Si nous avons bien entendu votre question, alors oui. Ce sentiment d’insularité et de manque d’indépendance peut souvent, comme nous avons dit, être précisément parce qu’ils ne dépendent pas et ne font pas confiance à ceux qui contribuent. Avons-nous entendu la question correctement? [Commentaire] Exactement. Quelques fois vous avez besoin de demander et obtenir de l’aide d’ailleurs pour avoir une position dans laquelle vous pourrez briller comme un Roi. EM: Oui. Plus souvent qu’autrement, les Rois se verront offrir cela et cela peut devenir irritant pour eux quand les gens essaient de contribuer alors qu’ils essaient de se faire une idée par eux-mêmes. Ils vont souvent entendre ces formes de contributions mais comme un « bruit ambiant » autour d’eux et ne pas saisir une forme importante d’apport qui aurait pu leur être bénéfique parce qu’ils auront rayé tout le monde à ce moment-là, et il peut être facile de manquer la ou les sources qui les auraient aidés à s’élever sur le plan de l’indépendance. [Question] Donc ce que vous deux avez essayé de décrire était le processus de délégation, n’est-ce pas? Reconnaitre que quelque fois d’autres seront capable sur certaines tâches de faire un meilleur travail que vous pourriez. EM: Oui. Il y a cela. Nous dirions que cette délégation est aussi combinée avec permettre. La délégation est plus une reconnaissance active ou une recherche d’autres personnes qui pourraient contribuer alors que permettre est cette réception de ceux qui ont à offrir. [Commentaire] Avoir confiance qu’ils vont le faire. EM: Oui. Avant que nous commencions à perdre le contact, nous allons passer au dernier Rôle celui de CHERCHEUR : Nous pourrions décrire ce qui motive les Chercheurs au niveau conscient en termes de DÉSIR, comme des PROJETS. Les Chercheurs veulent des projets. Ils veulent travailler sur quelque chose. Ils veulent étudier quelque chose. Ils veulent calculer quelque chose. Ils veulent fabriquer quelque chose. Ce que sera le projet dépend souvent de leur Rôle-moulé. Ça pourrait être d’aider quelqu’un ou bien un grand nombre d’autres choses mais ils veulent des projets. C’est ce qui souvent les motive. Sous-jacent à toute autre chose, il y a ce sens de création, participation ou contribution à un projet. Encore une fois, en parlant des Chercheurs, la définition de ce que sera le projet peut varier. Mais nous pensons que pour un Chercheur authentique, il serait difficile d’en trouver un qui n’a pas songé d’une façon ou d’une autre à « quel est mon prochain projet », « qui est mon prochain projet » ou « comment sera mon prochain projet ». Leurs BESOINS cependant – ici encore nous avons deux mots qui pourraient fonctionner – ce qui les motive inconsciemment et va trouver des façons d’être comblés, seraient REPOS ou CAPITULATION. Les Chercheurs ont besoin de Vrai Repos plus que la plupart des autres Rôles, ou ont besoin de reconnaître la valeur de la Capitulation plus que les autres Rôles. Le mot Capitulation est souvent confondu avec résignation, et nous clarifions ici que la capitulation est la reconnaissance consciente de forces qui ne sont pas particulièrement sous notre contrôle immédiat. Il y a un sentiment de permission pour ces choses qui vont survenir qu’importe votre contribution, participation ou capacité de les contrôler. Donc les Chercheurs doivent apprendre à capituler et ils en ont Besoin. Ils vont découvrir qu’ils naviguent dans des positions où ils doivent capituler devant des forces plus grandes qu’eux. C’est aussi comment le repos survient, parce que quand les Chercheurs capitulent, ils peuvent ressentir un sentiment de libération et redevenir vraiment plus centrés à nouveau, recentrés sur eux-mêmes, dans une position pour plus d’assimilation dans la vie, plutôt qu’être constamment distrait par la navigation. Avons-nous des Chercheurs qui aimeraient commenter, valider ou questionner? [Question] Ouais, on dirait que vous pointez des Chercheurs qui ont des problèmes de contrôle. La question pourrait être comment différentier entre quand laisser aller et permettre, et quand savoir que vous devez aller de l’avant. Et cela pourrait être une réflexion de mon Rôle-moulé de Serveur. J’ai des difficultés à différencier entre les deux, mais je reconnais le besoin de permettre aux choses de simplement prendre leur place. EM: Du point de vue du Chercheur – nous parlerons de l’aspect Serveur dans un moment – et pour ce qui est de savoir quand capituler et quand se reposer versus quand aller de l’avant, c’est lorsque vous savez que vous ne serez pas capable de tout contrôler. Cela peut exiger que vous alliez de l’avant peut-être une ou deux fois pour essayer, mais plus souvent qu’autrement, ce sera plutôt clair lorsque vous pourrez ou ne pourrez pas contrôler la situation. Quand vous reconnaissez « Je ne peux pas contrôler ceci », c’est là que vous vous retirez et vous reposez parce que ce n’est pas entre vos mains. Cela ne veut pas dire que vous n’avez pas à contribuer, ou participer d’aucunes façons. Ce que nous allons faire c’est d’utiliser un scénario simple que vous pourrez ensuite appliquer à des scénarios plus personnels. S’il va y avoir un orage, vous ne pouvez pas changer qu’il y aura un orage. Il va pleuvoir, il va y avoir du vent, et vous ne pouvez pas changer cela. Vous ne pouvez pas changer cela mais ce que vous pouvez faire c’est de décider comment naviguer cela, ce qui signifie que vous pourriez choisir soit de rester à l’intérieur – laisser l’orage survenir et rester à l’intérieur – ou de vous préparer avec votre imperméable, vos bottes de pluie et votre parapluie et d’aller dehors en sachant que serez probablement mouillés et que vous ne pourrez pas nécessairement contrôler à quel degré vous serez mouillés. Comprenez-vous? [Commentaire] Oui EM: C’est la même chose dans votre vie personnelle. Il peut y avoir un orage qui brasse ou l’arrivée d’un orage. De reconnaitre que vous ne pouvez pas changer l’orage mais que vous pouvez changer comment vous naviguez avec cet orage, fait une très grosse différence pour le Chercheur. Cela leur permet de retrouver leur sentiment de pouvoir, leur sentiment de capacité à donner un sens à la situation, parce que c’est une des choses qui distrait le plus les Chercheurs. Essayer de donner un sens aux choses peut les rendre fous si cela semble sans aucun sens ou qu’il y a un manque de capacité à assimiler le scénario. Ainsi de savoir où tracer la ligne entre ce que vous pouvez contrôler et quand c’est le temps de simplement naviguer ce que vous ne pouvez pas contrôler va vous aider à retrouver ce sentiment de repos, ce sentiment d’être centré. Comprenez-vous? [Commentaire] Oui [Question] Pour un Chercheur, vous avez mentionné plus tôt le Vrai Repos, est-ce personnel à chaque Chercheur; quel est leur Vrai Repos, qu’est-ce qui est en jeu ou est-ce vraiment, littéralement, un repos? EM: Nous lui avons donné un sens plus général. Votre Tâche de vie et les Piliers qui la supportent – dont l’un d’eux est le Vrai Repos, et tous les différents exemples qui peuvent combler le Vrai Repos vont entrer en jeu. Nous avons utilisé le terme ou la phrase, dans le même sens que cette catégorie est définie initialement. Le Vrai Repos signifie que vous vous sentez inspirés à nouveau, que vous avez vraiment refait le plein, que vous revenez motivés par, et enthousiastes de, l’expérience. [Question] Est-ce que ce que j’ai lu sur l’hygiène des Chercheurs comme prendre des bains et rire, feraient partie de la catégorie du repos? EM: Cela va très certainement aider le Chercheur, oui. C’est le cas dans les situations générales : vous pouvez aller prendre un bain, avoir des moments drôles et prendre du bon temps. Mais ce qui importe ici, dans le contexte du sujet d’aujourd’hui, c’est lorsque vous êtes dans une situation que vous ne pouvez pas contrôler ou que vous rencontrez des difficultés. Vous ne serez probablement pas capable de courir prendre un bain, ou de rire dans de telles circonstances, mais vous voudrez pouvoir recourir à vos capacités de discernement pour évaluer le niveau de contrôle que vous avez et ensuite comment vous allez naviguer à l’intérieur de cela. [Commentaire] Alors le détachement va entrer en jeu, pour ce qui est de prendre un recul et laisser les choses se produire. EM: C’est un mot que vous pourriez utiliser, oui. Nous dirions que le discernement serait plus spécifiquement applicable ici, parce que c’est ce qui arrive avec les Chercheurs. Le détachement va aider mais le discernement – être capable de définir et différentier entre ce que je peux contrôler et ce que je ne peux pas – est ce qui importe. Si cela demande du détachement, alors cela vous sera utile. Mais le point important est le discernement- et ensuite, bien sûr, intégrer cela en vous-même de sorte que lorsque le scénario revient, vous savez que « Je n’ai pas de contrôle sur cela. Je peux seulement naviguer cela et voici comment je choisis de naviguer ». Comment chacun se sent-il par rapport à ses Désirs et Besoins relativement à son Rôle? [Commentaire] Je pense que c’était très intéressant. [Commentaire] Ça du sens. [Commentaire] Ouais, ça du sens pour moi aussi. [Commentaire] Et c’est vraiment bien d’entendre les autres Rôles parce qu’évidemment nous connaissons des gens d’autres Rôles et nous saurons quoi leur apporter ou cela va nous aider à les comprendre mieux. [Commentaire] Ouais, et de clarifier si vous n’êtes pas sûr de ce qu’est leur Rôle. Maintenant je pense : “ oh, untel ou untel est Artisan”. Très utile. EM: C’est ce que nous allions dire ensuite. Comme une façon de conclure, nous allions suggérer que chacun de vous ne fasse pas juste garder à l’esprit ses propres Désirs et Besoins. Connaître le Rôle d’un autre peut vous aider à comprendre ce que cet individu peut avoir comme Désirs et Besoins, même s’il n’en est pas nécessairement conscient. Si vous reconnaissez des comportements chez quelqu’un qui illustrent ces Désirs et Besoins et que vous ne connaissez pas leur Rôle, cela peut vous aider à identifier leur Rôle. Donc ce n’est pas seulement de l’information pour vous aider dans votre navigation, mais aussi comment accepter la forme de navigation des autres et y contribuer si c’est ce que vous choisissez de faire. Pendant que nous décrivions ces Désirs et Besoins, est-ce que certains ont trouvé que cela ne s’appliquait pas à ce qu’ils étaient. [Commentaire] Le Rôle de Roi s’applique mais quand j’ai entendu le Besoin des Artisans de valider quand ils créent quelque chose, cela s’appliquait aussi à moi et m’a amené à me poser une question: “est-ce possible que ce soit là mon Rôle plutôt que celui de Roi ou bien est-ce quelque chose qui résonne aussi avec le Roi?” EM: Nous avons essayé d’être très spécifique ici, alors ce que nous suggérons c’est que vous jouiez avec l’information que nous avons partagé aujourd’hui et preniez le temps d’évaluer. Pendant ces activités de groupe il peut être difficile de tout évaluer et de tout mettre en contexte à une plus grande échelle. Jouez avec ces Désirs et Besoins qui résonnent avec vous et voyez lesquelles s’appliquent au plus de cas et de là allez avec ce que vous pensez qui est le plus valide. Nous ne ferons pas cette détermination pour vous ici parce que nous encourageons nos étudiants à faire ce travail de validation. Quand des questions, des différences ou des idées surgissent, cela peut être une indication qu’il y a eu une transmission inexacte. C’est important pour vous de vous approprier ce processus de validation. Et la façon de faire dans ce cas-ci est de regarder ce qui est le plus insidieux, le plus imbriqué dans votre vie, plutôt que ce qui semble le plus attirant. Si même cela est difficile à utiliser comme méthode d’évaluation à un niveau personnel, demandez à quelqu’un de votre entourage. Parfois ceux autour de vous qui vous sont parmi les plus proches, peuvent vous dire « Oh non. Tu es beaucoup plus ceci que cela ». Bon. Avec cela nous allons terminer pour aujourd’hui. C’est la première fois que nous passons par Troy de cette façon depuis longtemps, alors nous allons quitter avant de commencer à mélanger nos mots et perdre la connexion. Nous souhaitons une bonne journée à chacun de vous. [Tous] Merci EM: Au revoir.
  10. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2004] [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 it's 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? MEntity: 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) MEntity: 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.
  11. [Reproduction of Michael Speaks: Strengths] MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here, now. Today we are asked to speak on the subject of the 9 Strengths and Weaknesses of Essence. First, we will say that the concept of "strengths" and "weaknesses" for Essence is a bit of a misnomer in that the angle of "weakness" is only a matter of relativity, so our description of the weaknesses would be more from the Personality's perception, than as a literal concept. Essence does not experience "weakness" in the same way that Personality experiences it, but sees all elements of itself and its experiences as potential strengths at the very least. However, it is valid to say that some of the strengths that are of Essence can often translate into weaknesses within certain contexts, so this is important to know. It is similar to knowing that, while in one culture the burping and farting at the table is a sign of gratitude and a good meal, in another culture, this is considered rude and insulting. Essence experiences what we refer to as a "double-edged sword of forgetfulness." It has a hard time remembering just how difficult the Physical Plane can be, or how complicated the various cultures and norms can be. It relies heavily upon the current Personality to keep that level of detail managed. But as the Personality opens more and more to manifesting Essence, then Essence can often "come through" in ways that may actually be experienced as weaknesses or poor behavior, when actually, with some understanding and awareness, that same behavior could be a strength. Every Essence contains all 9 of what we will refer to as "Strengths," but within each lifetime, and depending upon the current Personality, certain Strengths will manifest more easily and apparently than others, with some never manifesting at all. Each Strength is a part of what we might call a "Tier," and there are three Tiers: Truth Tier; Love Tier; and Energy Tier. Though it is not a rule, it tends to be the case that a more obvious Strength tends to also be supported by the other Strengths of that Tier. Though you will find many correlations as we share these Strengths, there are no dependencies or strict associations. Each of you may find variations within your self-analysis of these Strengths, with mixing and matching not uncommon. There are three Strengths per Tier, with one acting as the ACTION, one acting as the INSPIRATION, and one as the EXPRESSION angle of that Tier. There are no tests or necessary channeling for you to determine your Strengths; they should be fairly obvious as we go through them. If you find that you relate more to the "weak" aspect of the Strength, it may free you to understand that you are simply misunderstanding/misusing an actual Strength. We wish to point out that the "weakness" not only describes how that Strength might be misunderstood or misused, it will also describe negative REACTIONS to your use of that Strength. It is not uncommon for your presence of Essence, and your Strengths, to bring out reactions from others who are unfamiliar with, challenged by, or simply resentful of your Strengths. Knowing this does not relieve you of the responsibility you may choose to have for your behavior, but it may lend insight into how better to manifest your Strength. The more consciously you manifest your Strengths, the less others will respond to it negatively. We will begin with the TRUTH TIER. The ACTION Strength of the Truth Tier is INNOVATION Its positive manifestation is EXPRESSION, and its negative manifestation is IMPOSITION This is the Strength to come up with solutions, ideas, resolutions, etc because of the capacity to see patterns, and to implement those solutions, etc. effectively. The positive manifestation is that implementation, or EXPRESSION of Innovation. The negative manifestation is that same Expression, but without agreement, communication, clarification, etc. The Strength may still be that a solution is affected, but if this is pushed upon others, no matter how great a solution, it can be an Imposition. This is an example of what we meant by all of these Strengths still always having a rather "positive" effect, but the degree of consciousness and awareness can determine its effect on others, or yourself. Keep in mind that these descriptions may be something that anyone can find relevant, but when we say that these are Strengths of Essence, we mean that they seem to have been a natural tendency for your Personality in ways that are almost taken for granted. Next would be the INSPIRATION Strength of the Truth Tier: REVELATION This manifests positively as FREEDOM, and negatively as PROVOCATION. This is the natural Strength of Essence to increase the breaking free from conflicting, restricting, or destructive truths. When this manifests positively, the effect is experienced as a kind of Freedom, but when manifesting negatively, it can simply feel as if you are being Provocative. People with this Strength tend not to be "easy" to be around because they naturally ignite a constant questioning. NOTE: we will build upon these descriptions in other exchanges about this subject, but for now the basics will be delivered. The EXPRESSION Strength of the Truth Tier is WISDOM. When this manifests positively, it is experienced as a kind of EXPANSION, but when manifesting negatively, it can be experienced as ISOLATION. We realize it may be confusing that we described the Action Strength of Innovation as having a positive manifestation of Expression, but we use the words in very different contexts. In the first case, with Innovation, it is in the context of Action, which means structuring into physicality, whereas with WISDOM, it is any kind of delivery THROUGH physicality. In short: Delivery INTO Physicality vs Delivery THROUGH Physicality. Those who naturally bring the Strength of Wisdom tend to simply KNOW. They "get it" very quickly and cohesively about any situation or experience in a way that defies logic, and works. That Wisdom is then either a means for Expansion, or a kind of evolution and growth, or it can emphasize the gap between the self and others in a way that feels isolating, or makes you appear to be removed. Some who are put into positions of guru status tend to have this Strength. Sages and Artisans tend to lean toward these three Strengths of Truth. INNOVATION, REVELATION, and WISDOM. Next is the LOVE Tier. The ACTION Strength of LOVE is CURIOSITY. When this manifests positively, it shows up as ADVENTUROUS, but when manifesting negatively, it can show up as DESTRUCTIVE. This is the fragment who is profoundly dismissive of the concerns of risk, and allows the self to be pulled wherever and however it wishes to be. This fragment is more concerned with what is on the other side of an experience, and always trusts that he or she can bounce back from any difficulties or challenges that might arise from Curiosity. Of course, this can just show up as reckless behavior, or even hurtful to others. The INSPIRATIONAL Strength of LOVE is RESONANCE. This shows up positively as EXCHANGE, but can also show up negatively as SENSITIVITY, or Prejudice. This is the fragment who tends to naturally bring out the best in himself or herself, or others, even in the worst of situations. When it shows up as Exchange, it is a reciprocating experience that is inspiring to both or all parties, and something is shared. When it shows up negatively, it can be experienced as a heightened sensitivity, because no real exchange is happening, or there is resistance to the Resonance. It would be something like plucking a string on a guitar to affect a certain note, but having it usurped by a pressing thumb that changes the note. When that original note is heard, there is Exchange. When it is resisted, ignored, or altered, it generates a Sensitivity. We use the word "sensitive" here in the sense of painful, not just being acutely aware. We also use the word "prejudice" because, (using the guitar analogy) the intended note is expected of the string. Resonance as a positive manifestation would adapt and find the common denominator that brings true resonance, but prejudice would just keep plucking for the same note. The EXPRESSION Strength of LOVE is AUTHENTICITY. This shows up positively as POWER, and negatively as SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS. This is the fragment who is completely transparent. There is nothing about this fragment that is hidden. That does not mean you would know everything about that person, but that it is simply not hidden. You may still have to look for it, or ask about it, etc, but this fragment is "real." When this transparency is presumed to be the case for everyone, it can turn into Self-righteousness. When it shows up as Power, it simply means that the person feels utterly alive, present, and sincere it his or her expression. That is the LOVE TIER of STRENGTHS: Curiosity, Resonance, and Authenticity. The final tier of Strengths would be the ENERGY (or Beauty) Tier. The ACTION Strength of Energy would be INCLUSION. When this shows up positively, it shows up as COMMUNING, but when it shows up negatively, it looks like POLICING. This is the person who is bent on including everyone, and naturally presuming that this is possible. When this shows up positively, it finds a medium of action that recognizes all of the nuances of inclusion, and what that might mean for various people, contexts, etc. When it shows up negatively, there is a definitive state of inclusion that requires everyone to accommodate it, or else. This leads to a constant state of policing, "calling people out," even censoring. The INSPIRATIONAL Strength of Energy would be CONFIDENCE. When this shows up positively, it shows up as SECURITY, but when it shows up negatively, it can look like INCONSIDERATION. This is the person who is so physically-confident, the effects can be comforting, nurturing, and inspire a sense of true security, merely by being in his or her presence. When it shows up positively, it brings with it a kindness, nurturing, and awe, but when it shows up negatively, it can bring with it inconsideration, aloofness, and insensitivity. The EXPRESSION Strength of ENERGY is INTIMACY. When this shows up positively, it is ACCEPTANCE, but when it shows up negatively, it might look like VIOLATION. People with this Strength tend to make you feel very good, even though they make no effort to do so. It simply feels "good" to be around them, and a sense of acceptance and intimacy is generated, whether invited, or not. In this case of Strengths, Intimacy is different from Resonance in that Resonance is like playing the same notes on different instruments, and Intimacy is to play different notes on the same instrument, if you will. When this shows up positively, it is such a harmony that Acceptance is experienced, but when it shows up negatively, it can be much like having your own song drowned out, so to speak, leaving you feeling Violated. These, then, are the three Strengths of Energy: INCLUSION, CONFIDENCE, and INTIMACY. Some additional considerations: Your Strengths may come out in different situations, different relationships, different tasks, etc. You may experience the Strength of someone who does not even realize it is a Strength in himself or herself. The negative manifestation of a Strength is always returned to a positive manifestation through NEUTRALITY, or ASSIMILATION. This basically means that you must digest your experiences, bring some awareness, take a break, and think, feel, or be SLOWER. Another way to put that is for you to let yourself catch up to you. Often your Strengths can be taken for granted so that you are not comprehending the impact of that Strength. The key is not in wielding your Strength, but in having a responsible awareness about it. We will respond to questions for 30 minutes; as many as we can. You mentioned that sages and artisans tend to lean towards the Truth Strengths...what about the other roles? Priests and Servers tend toward the LOVE Strengths; Warriors and Kings toward the ENERGY Strengths. Scholars tend toward any, but often relevant to Casting. We say this, but it is also important, if not more important, to consider the Personality. A Personality might be drawn to manifest certain Strengths for any number of reasons: it may be seeking to explore a Strength that is not as familiar or "natural" to that Essence. For instance, a Sage or a Priest with few Action Overleaves might be drawn to an Energy Strength. In cases where a Strength is accessed due to lack of familiarity or Overleaves to support it, it can often show up negatively. A Personality may also be drawn to a Strength because of a predominance of Overleaves upon a certain axis, as well. After Martha shared her Auschwitz past life experience it made me wonder (yet again!) if Essence is really "cruel”? Do we (personality) “know” enough before we are born to make an informed decision re: events etc. or does Essence pull all the strings? I know “all is chosen” – but it feels like Essence learns “at the expense” of Personality - where does Essence end and Personality begin (or vice-versa!)?? To respond to the question as it is, we would say that Essence "pulls ALL of the strings" previous to incarnating, but upon incarnation, it has some control over the first seven years of development of the Body and Personality, but after that, the Personality is completely in control. Much of what happens after birth is out of the hands of Essence, so to speak, and a matter of choice, decisions, or lack thereof relative to the Personality. Essence is far from cruel, however, even in its planning for a difficult lifetime. It is about as cruel as one who decides to ride a roller coaster, go to the movies to see a drama or horror film, or one who decides to undertake a creative manifestation such as writing a book, building a home, or having a baby. There will be pain in those projects, but the creative process and result is the original intention, not the pain. PAIN and SUFFERING are NEVER planned by Essence. EVER. Karmic Ribbons that include suffering as part of the balance due to the originating Karma, can always be altered in ways that bring balance without the suffering. However, as we said, Personality is in control, and it often does not "know better" for various reasons, including sometimes its rejection of Essence. would it be fair to say that few Essences had any control at all on whether their incarnations ended up in Concentration camps? That would be fair to say. It was the choice of Essence to incarnate while knowing this could happen, and while many were curious as to what could be experienced, the pain and suffering were never "planned." That being said, it is a default awareness of Essence that pain and suffering are experiences that cannot be avoided during the incarnational cycles. So it could be said that Essence does not actively seek to avoid those experiences, but it does not actively "plan" them, either. It does not have to. They would happen, with or without planning. Can essence somehow make horrific physical things easier - can it help the personality? Like in Auschwitz with children being mutilated. Essence can only help to ease suffering if the Personality allows for it to be present. For some Personalities who allow for Essence to present in the life, "suffering" is often experienced as a profound surrender that borders on ecstasy, or bliss. Do the 9 Strengths/Weaknesses relate to the 9 Needs? In fact, they do. To the extent that the 9 Needs are met, so do the 9 Strengths manifest positively. To the extent that a Need is met, so does the corresponding Strength manifest positively. Often, Needs are emphasized or neglected based on the manifestation of corresponding Strengths. We will conclude here tonight. Good evening to each of you. This might be considered a briefing on these Strengths, but there is much more that can be explored through your questioning. Goodbye.
  12. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (2 of 3)] [MBV] Getting in touch with essence seems like such a BIG question. I am wondering if as younger souls we incur karma and work on monads and the like to throw up roadblocks for us to pull down as we get older. In other words, as we move away the debris of our younger days, are we in fact starting the lesson of the older levels which is to re-remember our essence? And in answer to the question about resonance I believe I resonate with my essence through music. [Michael_Entity] You are correct in many ways, Mary. “Re-remembering” is a valid term in this instance. The Old Soul phase can be said to be the age of comprehending all consequences. Studying your Role will give you more and more insights into your “essence”. No other aspect in your dynamics can clarify that remembering as much as your Role. Many of you have become very adaptable over the eons. This means you are less inclined to manifest your Essences as you see fit. Instead, you rely on this single Personality that “you” are to comprehend all that has come to pass as a Soul. The key is in freeing the personality from this distraction. This is why we feel past lives, though valid, more often lay a burden on many of you in ways that are difficult to comprehend or validate. There are some functions that are of Essence, and some that are of Personality’s. Differentiating these functions can lend more freedom to both. Personality wants to live. It is alive NOW in the most important sense it will ever know. By treating yourselves (Personality) as something to be overcome, set aside, tamed, or controlled, you are missing the point. You are Essences’ eyes, hands, feet, heart,… everything you delight in, so does Essence. For each Essence there are simple ways to take delight in a life. In that delight, there are ways to build more conscious connections. Building on delight brings the laughter and tears and pleasure. As we have said before, Happiness is a navigational tool for the body while on the physical plane. We will point out that happiness does not mean you are merely smiling and content. Even in the worst of situations, they can technically be contextually happy since there are aspects of you that “understand”. To help in re-remembering your Essence, we think these few keywords may be of some assistance in navigating toward delight: For the Expressive Roles, Sages and Artisans take delight in playing, goofing off. For the Inspirational Roles, Priests and Servers take delight in helping, guiding, caring for, discussing. For the Action Roles, Kings and Warriors take delight in challenges, commitment, and sexuality. For the Assimilative Role, the Scholar delights in knowing, understanding, and learning. They can also refer to Casting. Although these delights are not exclusive nor complete, they are helpful in reminding you of what Essence delights in, and this can be compared to when you, as Personality, may be filtering or dismissing that delight.
  13. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2009] [Question] a cosmology question ? – the Universe is said to be 14 billion years old. Recognizing the problem with ‘time’, when were the cadres/entities ‘cast’ out from Tao in relationship to the creation of this Universe? Before, during, or after? (I have been told my essence/soul is also 14 billion ‘years’ old -I am curious how this ‘fits’). [Michael Entity] Cadres and Entities are cast over and over within a Universe with every return to Tao, which includes the choice of your Essence’s new Role, new Entity, new Cadre, etc., for every Grand Cycle. The measurement of time for that Universe and its first casting of Entities is always relative to the Planetary System of the Sentience at the time of such a question. [Question] the earth is said to be just over 4 billion years old so we were cast ‘last’ 4 billion years ago? Where does the 14 billion ‘age’ come in? or was this in relationship to a prior planetary system of sentience? [Michael Entity] What we mean is that if we were answering this question for another fragment in another planetary system with a different measurement of time, we would have to answer with a very different scale. In terms of time measurement as can be understood in any practical sense, we can safely say that your (and our) current Sentience is at least 14 billion years old, “give or take” a billion or so. Keep in mind, however, that your ROLE may not be as “old” since you have returned to Tao multiple times in Grand Cycles.
  14. ASK MICHAEL - OPEN FLOOR March 2, 2014 Channel - Troy Tolley [DianeHB] From Kurtis: Hi Michael, I'd like to ask for elaboration on the Realist Attitude, Reserve Mode and Perseverance Mode within the time allowed. Such as how the Negative and Positive Poles function, as there isn't much on any of those traits. If there isn't enough time for 3, that's fine too, then we can just elaborate on the Realist Attitude and Reserve Mode. MEntity: The Realist Attitude is the Exalted, Action Attitude. Attitudes describe a base philosophy through which life is interpreted. In this case, the Realist interprets life through the larger patterns of experiences that have proven to be trustworthy. These experiences tend to be tangible experiences. Anything outside of that collection of tangible patterns and experiences is not considered to be "realistic." This is not to say that the Realist is not open to new, tangible experiences that would build upon previous tangible experiences, but that if it is not already within that range, it is simply not trustworthy. In other words, if it is worth questioning, then it is not "realistic" to count on it. This can tend to leave the Realist with a very refined, but broad, net of what is considered trustworthy and "real." When the Realist is in the Positive Pole, OBJECTIVITY, it means that there is no investment in what is that range of tangible experiences. That Realist is open to all experiences, and if it moves into that range of trust, then so be it, but if not, then so be it. The Positive Realist simply sees WHAT IS. The Realist in the Negative Pole, SUBJECTIVE, starts to become invested in what is wished to be real, what is expected to be dependable, and what is longed for. Their interpretation of experience then shifts outside of its range of trust, and moves more into that state of investment. It is no longer about WHAT IS, but about WHAT IS NOT. And the effort to turn WHAT IS NOT, into WHAT IS. RESERVE MODE is the Ordinal, Inspiration Mode. Modes are how one RELATES, and the HOW of fulfilling the Goal. If Passion Mode is the approach to relationships and to fulfilling the Goal through the freeing of emotions, then Reserve Mode is the approach to relationships and to fulfilling the Goal through the refinement of emotions. Those in Reserve Mode are acutely aware of their feelings and the energy that flows behind those, but are quite selective about what is shared or released or put into use. If you think of emotional energy as a kind of fuel, then those in Reserve prefer to use their "fuel" only when it is necessary, efficient, or relevant. So those in the Positive Pole, RESTRAINT, will find strength in the building up of this energy for those uses where it is more necessary, efficient, or relevant. It is a kind of allocation process, and not one that is intent on ignoring or rejecting emotions. However, if Reserve falls into the Negative Pole, then this allocation process falls away from the strength of Restraint, and into INHIBITION. Inhibition is the same process, but with only the intention for protecting the emotions, or protecting one's "fuel." Considering the queue of questions, we will move on from here to the next question. [Larissa] Anxiety seems to be a growing struggle for many these days. I understand that anxiety relates to fears/focus on the future while depression is a focus on the past. For a person who has difficulty identifying that they are in fact competent and understanding ‘why’ they feel overwhelmed/anxious/fearful, what tools can we use for ourselves or to assist a person in uncovering contributors to anxiety and help to shift our/their anxiety from a negative and debilitating concern to one that can be more easily understood and navigated, and eventually leads to our/their “recovery” (for lack of a better word), neutrality, or and/or healing? Any additional insight you can share on the topic is welcome and appreciated. MEntity: First, we will say that Depression can also be about the future, but is a more resigned position from that of anxiety. Anxiety would like to regain control, while Depression may have resigned that there is no control. In both cases, an underlying issue is the same: one cannot find themselves in any position of beneficial influence in their internal stories, images, possibilities, etc. The conditions you describe could be more of a syndrome than a mood, so it is also important for us to note here that a response from us in broader terms may not be able to address the mix of issues that contribute to one's anxiety or depression. In general, the healing measures that can help would begin with a return to some semblence of control. Since both Anxiety and Depression are about helplessness, it can be beneficial to direct the attention toward some area in which that person can rekindle his or her sense of control. Often that redirection of attention can be in the most surprising of ways that then cascades a return to confidence across the spectrum. For example, arranging a bouquet of flowers in a vase. This may seem useless, but that focus on such beauty and how one can enhance it with some nurturing moves, can be quite healing. Or an effort to smile. This can seem useless, as well, but making the concerted effort to smile, and then holding that for 30 seconds, can help ignite the sense of levity and energy that would be useful for dealing with the anxiety or depression. So, as a general response, we can only suggest here that ANY return of participation in ANY action that brings a sense of contribution and control is useful here. We would suggest not dismissing even the silliest or most "useless" of efforts. These add up. Add 5 of these little events to the day of one who is depressed or anxious, and it can turn around that day. Other suggestions: petting of animals; playing with children; repairing something minor; singing the "abc song;" counting; making time to sit under a tree; etc [Tyrone] Ok: About the Mormon/Latter-Day Saint church: Would Michael say that the current portrayal of Joseph Smith's life is generally historically correct? As in mainly, what were the events surrounding the time when he reportedly was shown metal plates and translated the book of Mormon? (Was it something like higher plane beings, extraterrestrial contact, wishful dreaming, actual gold plates, Urim and Thummim, etc?) MEntity: There is very little that is accurate regarding the life of the fragment known as Joseph Smith, though much of that inaccuracy was perpetuated by the fragment, himself. This was an early Mature Priest, Artisan Cast, in Acceptance, Passion Mode, an Idealist, with double Arrogance. His zealousness compelled him to bring about his ideals at any cost, even if that meant lying. There was no channeling. The source was directly of the imagination of the fragment. With that being said, his intentions and ideals appear to have been "good," even if colored by the imprinting and paradigm at the time. The aim appears to have been toward some ideal of agape, but became mired in mythologies that ended up promoting this agape as an insularity, instead. [Philip] About the Zeta information. Is this to be taken seriously? Is this channeled material? MEntity: There are many variations on what might be phrased "zeta information." Are you asking of this, in general? And are you speaking of the off-planet species that this tends to refer to? [Philip] What I am seeing is about a Planet X and a pole shift on earth. Yes, off planet species MEntity: Your question is quite broad, so our response will be, as well: to take the information you are coming across seriously, or not, is up to you. We cannot make that choice for you. In terms of a group of off-planet species generally referred to as "zetas," this has gone wildly into the realm of symbolism, and not accuracy. Though there are species that are similar to the descriptions often offered, the use of "Zeta" to group them is about as accurate as describing Humans, chimpanzees, and apes as "American." The symbolism of these aliens have come to be the replacement for what were once considered demons. In other words, they are a modern construct of personified fears, in many instances (not all). The species referred to, in general, are not as sinister as are often depicted. In terms of "Planet X" and a "pole shift," there is some validity to the fact that there are "planets" in trajectories that could be worrisome for Earthlings. Though we are not certain as to when any of these may be of necessity for concern, we do not think it is any time soon. As for Pole Shifts, these occur all of the time. They are not unusual. The pole shifts often referred to as being on a scale of massive destruction or change has never happened. We know that it is possible, but highly unlikely. [Juni] How is it possible to tell the difference between (and validate) when one has had actual contact/conversation with others while sleeping versus it being "just a dream" and is there cording happening when it's the former? MEntity: If you dream about a person, you are most likely in some form of contact with that person. Even your sex dreams about a celebrity are "real," in that regard. The Astral Plane is not restricted to known or appropriate relationships, and this is why you might even have sexual dreams about a family member. In the Astral Plane, sexual exchanges are not exploitative or ugly. They are forms of nurturing, support, and resonance. This is often carried back into the waking state as disturbing or distracting, because of the rules of relationships in the Physical Plane, but one can simply let them be what they were, and not impose temporal concerns on them. The Physical Plane is not burdened by those Astral relationships/contact, beyond the memory of the person dreaming, and what he or she chooses to do with that. In most cases, it is quite specific to the need of the dreamer, and not the one dreamed about. We emphasized sexual exchanges here, but we speak of any exchanges. And, yes, Cording does get involved. In most cases, the Cord would have had to have been in place already. If you dream of communication with someone you know you know in the dream, but do not know in waking state, it is often the case that you simply do not have a current incarnation that can reference that fragment very easily to you. If you dream of an exchange with someone who is faceless, or is vague, it is often an exchange with some facet or extension of yourself. [ViP1] Hi Michael, I have a couple of questions about Essence attributes. First, do the frequency and focused/creative energy ratio of an Essence remain fixed across all of the Spark's grand cycles? Or are they chosen anew, from scratch, at the beginning of each grand cycle? Second, do the roles in Essence have frequencies of their own (separate from the frequency of the Essence itself?) I have read from another channeler's channeling of you, that the roles do have such frequencies, ranging from Warrior (lowest) to Priest (highest), and that the frequency of a Role implies how "solidly" a Personality of that Role would be in touch with and connected to the tangible world around them (the lower the frequency, the more connected). Is this valid? MEntity: In response to your first question: Yes, Frequency and Focused/Creative Energy is locked across all Grand Cycles within a universe. These are the very unique "signatures" that identify a fragment with or without a Role. Once that signature is claimed, that fragment is capable of being recognized and identified, even upon return to the most conclusive oneness that is Tao. The Roles, however, also carry their own frequency, but that is only in terms of inherent characteristics that are then overridden by any individual Essence. So there is validity to the fact of more solid Roles, and less solid Roles, and that solid or less solid effect is a generality in each lifetime. However, the more one Manifests Essence, the more one's own Frequency begins to override any solidity or liquidity. In earlier Grand Cycles, the Frequency of the Essences will tend to gravitate toward the range that is inherent in the Roles, but as one's number of Grand Cycles rise, the differences between the Frequency and the inherent range of the Role can be quite drastic. Those who are in False Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the default of the Role. Those who are in True Personality will tend to be experienced and be navigating based on the Frequency of Essence. Between lives, and in terms of Review, the default of the Role will tend to be the case in the earlier lifetimes, and then, eventually, the Essence's own Frequency is owned and used. The above is meant in the context of how one processes experiences. However one processes experiences, the Frequency will still be static. [brian] Hi Michael, could you describe what Narcissism is in relation to the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies and how to reduce or eliminate its causes and effects, both internally and towards others? MEntity: Narcissism, in relation to the different bodies, would simply be a matter of contexts for where narcissism is upheld. It would not be much different in any of those contexts, though. Narcissism is often an extreme of either Arrogance or Self-deprecation, and is developed as a means of protecting what has come to be accepted as the most fragile thing in one's life: THE SELF. Those in extreme Self-deprecation or Arrogance where valid narcissism has developed will tend to have a very difficult time hearing, or listening, to anything that contradicts their conclusions; will have a very difficult time focusing on anything other than the preservation or serving of the self; will actively or passively refuse to accept that any social rules or contracts are applicable to them; will often hear any insights or suggestions for help to be merely criticisms and insults to them; will tend to default to the distraction of blame of anything other than the self for what goes awry in the life; and will tend to consider any instances of helplessness, anger, or depression to be the cause of someone else. Or something else. So the key for addressing this, even though it is an extreme, is the same for addressing any issues of self-esteem. It can be a long road to recovery, but the individual would have to come to terms with the fact of fragility in others, as a way to recognize the strengths within the self. This is because the one thing that locks those in Self-deprecation or Arrogance away from confidence is the idea that they are somehow less than what another person wishes them to be, or more than what another person can handle. To address someone in Narcissism, we would have to discuss with that person, specifically, the more detailed suggestions that could help that are relative to the causes of that person's fears. In general, though, the narcissist can start by allowing his or her fragility, and honoring that fragility in others. [brian] Is it possible for someone in Narcissism to actually care about others, even if they have difficulty expressing it appropriately? Or are they truly "in it for themselves?" MEntity: The irony here is that this can then become a source of empathy and strength that no longer requires defenses. Brian, that tends to depend on Soul Age. The younger souls tend toward this condition as a form of near-erotic love and admiration for the self as a way to compensate for that which feels makes him or her so different from others. Older souls will tend to go in the other direction, despising themselves, and desperately seeking to be rescued from the trap of those differences that define them, thus creating many inappropriate scenarios, or constant crossing of boundaries. This is not to say that the narcissist does not care, but that the caring is often conditional on how well it distracts the narcissist from his own disgust. So the older narcissist would want to begin to treat himself or herself with the same eagerness to care and nurture and love as he or she would any other person. [wyatt] Why are there identical pyramid structures erected in various ancient civilizations when historical records haven't indicated the civilizations have had contact with each other previously? As in Mayan mexico and indonesia/bali/Cambodia [MikeClev] (China...) MEntity: Wyatt, the ideas for the architecture was from off-planet species, and those were shared among those civilizations, even as those civilizations were disparate. That is the general answer we can offer. There are nuances, and variations, of course. [wyatt] will the off planet species strike again? MEntity: We would not describe it as "strike," but yes. Wyatt, our idea of "soon" may not be accurate to the Physical Plane, but we have yet to see a probability over the next 50 to 100 years that does not include contact with off-planet species on an open and wide scale. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.

    Scholars: Living as Essence

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... For the SCHOLAR, the question would be: IS THIS THE STORY I WANTED TO KNOW? or, put another way, "AM I LEARNING FROM THIS STORY?" The questions are not "what do I know from this story?" or "what can I learn from this story?" but more pointed at choice in the phrasing of "IS THIS THE STORY I WANTED TO KNOW" and "AM I LEARNING FROM THIS STORY." The difference here is that the Scholar can feel obligated to learn from everything, to extract wisdom from every experience, and this can sometimes spread them so thinly in terms of quality of experience that they fall into Theory and never really KNOW much, or at least, not much in terms of what they wanted to know. There is such a disconnect between the knowledge and the experience that the Scholar merely becomes a barrage of tales, information, empty words to fill the space, but very little in terms of depth and passionate knowing. So for the Scholar who seeks to live as Essence, it can be revitalizing to ask, "IS THIS THE STORY I WANT TO KNOW?" and "AM I LEARNING FROM THIS STORY?" To ask these questions bring active participation in the quest for knowledge, rather than simply gathering it because it is there.

    Living as Essence: King

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... For the KING, the question is: IS THIS THE STORY I WANTED TO LIVE? Or put another way, "AM I ALIVE IN THIS STORY?" Kings, more than most other Roles, will endure the stories of their lives to such an extent that they no longer feel alive. They will continue down a trajectory for decades before hitting a wall that forces them to wake up from their stupor and BE ALIVE. So for the Kings who seek to live as Essence, the vibrancy of living must be considered as a parameter for staying on track and in the positive poles. If the King does not feel alive, he is likely not living the story he meant to live, and is likely not living as Essence. Kings, more than other Roles, often feel that enduring boredom and tedium are honorable and noble, so there is some sense of great pride in enduring this. And they can and will do so for years. However, there are few things as emotionally moving and inspiring than to see a King wake up. To see and hear a King laughing and giddy with excitement is profoundly touching. We dare say that our King students may actually cringe at the association of "giddy" with King, but it happens. And so the King who seeks to live as Essence must regularly ask, "AM I ALIVE IN THIS STORY?" "IS THIS THE STORY I MEANT TO LIVE?" and in asking these questions, she will be able to help herself navigate her choices, actions, and paths to higher ground.

    Priests: Living as Essence

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... For the PRIEST, the question might be: DOES THIS STORY REALLY MATTER? Priests, more often than other Roles, can lend heavy weight to the lightest of stories. If there is a misstep, an accident, a bad choice, a wrong turn, well, it must mean SOMETHING. And so the Priest who seeks to live as Essence can help herself greatly by asking, "DOES THIS STORY REALLY MATTER?" In many cases, the Priest will probably state "yes!" so the question can be extended to be "DOES THIS STORY REALLY MATTER THAT MUCH?" or "....more than this or that?" Sometimes the Priest requires some clarification in perception so that depth of vision returns. Otherwise, the depth of vision is flattened by the presumption that everything is equally meaningful. When they are outraged, agitated, distracted, it can be helpful to ask this question so that this depth can return, and the living as Essence can soften the edges.

    Sages: Living as Essence

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... For SAGES, the question would be: IS THIS THE STORY I WISH TO TELL? This may seem obvious, but that is because all of these suggestions are likely obvious, and the truths of existence are almost always as simple as these kinds of questions. For Sages, the concept of the life as a story is inherent. There is almost always a sense of what the life will mean to others, how it is affecting others, and if it is teaching anyone anything. Because the Sage knows that all of life has value in terms of a great story, the Sage can often be quite indiscriminate in what happens to him or her, because it can always be made into a great story. But when the Personality seeks to live as Essence, the story becomes much more important in terms of its cohesiveness and quality. It is no longer about whether it is entertaining or dramatic. In fact, the Sage who seeks to live as Essence does not mind how quiet, subtle, or plain her story anymore. What begins to matter is if it is actually the story she wishes to tell. In other words, the story gets simpler and more immediately accessible, rather than embellished with dramatics and entertainment. The Sage who seeks to live as Essence begins to become acutely aware of how her words shape others' perception of her, and that there is a theme to the story being told. Sometimes when that is realized, it is shocking. The Sage can sometimes be so caught up in the storytelling thrill, that she forgets that it is shaping the whole of the story that others see about that Sage's life. Sages can be of the most vocal of complainers about life, injustices, aches, pains, struggles, obstacles, and all of the great points that make a great story. But they often forget that these great points are stacking up as a whole story, and that there is more to them than those complaints. So to bring consciousness and choice back into the picture, it is important for the Sage to ask if the story he or she is telling, is really the story he or she wishes to tell.

    Artisans: Living as Essence

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... Next, we will speak of the ARTISAN: For the Artisan, the question would be fairly obvious: IS THIS THE STORY I MEANT TO CREATE? Artisans cannot help but create. They are never not creating. This means that the Artisan evolves over lifetimes in the capacity for managing what is created. When creation is unchecked, it can lead to chaos. When creation is denied, it can lead to delusions. So it can be a precarious path for the Artisan to learn how to create with intention. When the Artisan does not live as Essence, the creation does not stop, and neither does the story. So the creation of the story that is the life can be quite extreme in terms of chaos, delusion, and if that is not enough, sometimes the Artisan will create your story for you, as well. Though all Personalities can be "guilty" of this, the Artisan can quickly decide on your backstory before you know it. Artisans are quick to like or dislike others based on this tactic. Artisans are also quite likely to leave you there, as well, regardless of any changes or updates to the contrary to their story created for you. So it is helpful for the Artisan who seeks to live as Essence to ask, "IS THIS THE STORY I MEANT TO CREATE?" The emphasis here is on "meant." Creation happens with or without intention, and the Artisan can easily fall prey to wild imaginings and conclusive outlooks that were passively prompted. When the life is created without intention, then the Personality begins to feel like a pinball in a pinball machine. To counter this, the Artisan can begin to lie to herself like no other Role. These lies can feel good, look good, and may feel as if they are helping, but they are false creations. The Artisan who lives as Essence must then do the sometimes painful task of determining if the life is a true story, or if it is only based on a true story, or if it is a lie, altogether. Is this the story I meant to create? Or am I covering up my true story? ### [The follow-up material below is excerpted from Ask Michael: January 2015.] JanaK: Referring to the session on Living as Essence, and more specifically to the Artisan part, how can one more specifically determine if one's life is a true story? I am talking about the part where you said “The Artisan who lives as Essence must then do the sometimes painful task of determining if the life is a true story, or if it is only based on a true story, or if it is a lie, altogether. Is this the story I meant to create? Or am I covering up my true story?" MEntity: The key for the Artisan is in the intention. When there is a disconnect between what is created and what is intended to be created, this can result in lying or delusion. The issue is not in the distance between intent and result, but in how that distance is handled. The Artisan Essence who is not lying will own the distance and do the work to close that distance, if possible. If the distance between intent and result is not possible to close, then that is owned, as well, and there is no lying about this. For example, it may have been intended to create a life as a pop star singer and this never came to pass. To the Artisan Essence, that is okay. It is not failure, and there is no reason to lie about it. Lying might show up in blaming the life, blaming others, faulting a lack of skills, etc. but owning it means that it simply was not created. It might still be possible, but the distance between intent and result is allowed to be true. JanaK: kind of taking responsibility for it then? MEntity: For the Artisan living a "true story," it means that not all intentions will have come to pass, but that this distance is allowed. Allowing that distance is not the same thing as conceding or resigning. The further the life is from what one intended, the more easily it can come to be in denial or delusion. However, the more that the distancing between intent and result is allowed and honored, the more focus the creative resources tend to be on closing that distance. When that distance is denied, creative resources are used to ignore that distance. When an Artisan is awake, these questions and considerations tend to be enough. For the Artisan that is asleep, no amount of questioning can tend to break through. It usually takes a turning point, intervention, or a complete crash.

    Living as Essence: Warrior

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... We will speak about the WARRIOR now: For the Warrior, the question would tend to be: IS THIS THE STORY I REALLY WANT TO DEFEND/PROTECT? Warriors, more often than most Roles, will live a life that eventually begins to include walls around it, so to speak. Their personal story starts to be marked with shame, guilt, secrecy, and sometimes regret. For the Warrior to live as Essence, he must look at the story of his life in a way that determines if he is simply nurturing integrity, or if he is hiding shame and guilt. When there is a nurturing of integrity, there is a quiet calm in the Warrior that owns his or her past, experiences, and knows that the details do not define the person, but what one does with those details defines the person. In asking, "Is this really the story I want to defend?" he is really asking, "Is it okay if I grow to like myself, and accept the choices I have made?" The Warrior, more than most other Roles, will turn to defense of a story of another person as a way to play out his defense of his own story. The Warrior will be quick to question the integrity of your story, if it is your own, but just as quickly defend it if it is questioned by someone else. This is because he or she is playing out the dynamic that exists with the self that he or she must contend with on a daily basis. The Warrior constantly questions the integrity of his own story, all while preparing to defend it with great strength. So if the Warrior who seeks to live as Essence remembers to ask, "Is this really the story I wish to defend?" the Warrior can shift his attention away from protecting or hiding his or her shame, or guilt, and aim for the integrity and depth that has come from those experiences.

    Servers: Living as Essence

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... We will begin with SERVERS: For Servers, the question for helping to determine the degree to which the Personality is living as Essence might be found in the question: IS THIS THE STORY I WANT TO SHARE? For Servers, the concept of sharing in the life story is vital. Servers wish deeply and sometimes desperately to share his or her story. The Servers want their stories to be shared, but there is a craving for that to be with just one person, one trusted, confident person. This passive or active wait for the "right person" to share in the life story can keep the Server in a state of limbo for a long time. They will share a little with some, with a few, and depending on the Overleaves, share this openly or with more guardedness, but the sense of truly sharing the story is kept out of sight until that "right person" is found. This can lead the Servers to be over-sharers or under-sharers. In an effort to share, Servers can share in the most mundane and tedious of ways that mimic sharing, but does not truly let sharing happen. It is just to fill the space and time between themselves and another person. On the other hand, some Servers may barely make themselves known even in the midst of a crowd, just to avoid sharing because it is deemed pointless unless it is truly sharing. So Servers can tend to share in ways that either speak to desperation, or they can share in ways that speak to loneliness. So if the Server can ask, "IS THIS THE STORY I WANT TO SHARE?" the Server can be more conscious of the story being shared. Do I really want a story of loneliness shared? Do I really want a story of desperation shared? Keep in mind that we are using the term "share" here very specifically. And this is where the Server can find he or she is leaving Essence out of the picture. Because the Server can get so caught up in protecting or pushing his or her own story, that he or she forgets that there are so many other stories around him or her. She forgets that she can ask about others' stories. She forgets that sharing is not one-sided. The more a Server can find pleasure in the stories of others, the more the Server finds that he or she can share in various ways, not just in one preconceived and protected way. So for the Server to live as Essence, the Server must aim for a way to SHARE in the story, not just wait for someone to share it with, or scatter the sharing so much that it is empty.

    The Inputs

    [This material is a reproduction of Michael Speaks: Inputs, which was delivered on April 18, 2002.] [M_Entity] Welcome. We are here. We understand the requested Topic to be that of “Inputs.” Very little has been said in terms of Inputs because the topic is a bit more nonlinear in appearance than most of the aspects of our Teaching. It “makes no sense” to some of our channels and students; therefore the topic is dismissed or vaguely understood. In nearly all aspects of our Teaching there is an order and consistency that can be counted on, but some aspects of the universe, while still sustaining an awesome order, may not “fit in” with the patterns of every other thing you have come to understand. We assure you though; there is still an awesome order and compassionate intelligence behind even the most bewildering parts of the universe, known and unknown. First, we will define “INPUT” as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends. 3 of the Roles in Essence have ONE INPUT; these are the Scholar, Warrior, and King Essences. 2 of the Roles in Essence have TWO INPUTS; these are the Priest and Server. 1 of the Roles in Essence has THREE INPUTS; this is the Sage. 1 of the Roles in Essence has FIVE INPUTS; this is the Artisan. The strange distribution of Inputs has to do with the Roles themselves acting as “sensory units,” so to speak, for Tao. Because the Physical Plane is of the most unique and densest of all Planes, 3 Roles in Essence are distributed with ONE INPUT so as to gain awareness, Process, and Comprehend FROM BEGINNING TO END in a linear fashion inherent to the Physical Plane. By default, Warriors and Kings are ACTION AXIS Roles and therefore inherently have ONE INPUT, as that is “natural” to Action. Being the most comfortable and compatible with the Physical Plane, Tao (or “the universe) is able to gain profound experiences through the linear process of gaining awareness and comprehension. The Scholars (who are the memory cells of Tao in many ways) have ONE INPUT so as to maintain a direct link to the Akashic Records/Plane. Because Scholars are specifically designed as ambient, experiential “sponges”, this ONE INPUT allows them to act as excellent, direct, recording devices and conduits between the Physical Plane and the Akashic Plane. Although all fragments update their own records (usually having to be done between lives or through conscious awareness), Scholars do so for themselves, their Entity, and/or Cadre. Because Scholars, Warriors, and Kings are by nature inclined to focus on very specific themes for study, conquest, or mastery (respectively), having One Input allows them to excel in the Task at Hand (by standards of Essence.) With this understanding, it would not be amiss to say that ALL FRAGMENTS have at least One Input focused on NOW, or in other words, capable of being focused on the present, the task at hand, the moment, etc. The Inspiration Roles of Priest and Server have an Additional Input as a means to maintain a connection to what INSPIRES them. In general, the Two Inputs for the Priest will have one focused on the Task At Hand, while the other maintains the Vision, or Higher Ideal. For the Server, one Input is focused on the Task At Hand, while the other is focused on the Common Good, or WHAT IS NEEDED. Inspirational Roles were the Tao’s idea of providing the universe with a means to provide for ALL FRAGMENTS an access to something “beyond the moment.” It could be said that the Priest then provides access to “what is beyond the Self”, while the Server provides access to “what is within the Self.” In general, the Expression Roles are the means for the Tao to continue reinventing or transforming itself throughout the Planes. As Kings and Warriors we can attest to the importance of the “pesky Sage” and the “kooky Artisans” as the single- or double-input Roles can tend to take to life a bit more “seriously”. Artisans and Sages can certainly be serious, which tends to be interpreted as “dramatic”, but they do bring a much-needed levity to the density of the Physical Plane. The Sage, in addition to the one Input focused on the Task At Hand, will have a second Input to sustain connection to whatever that fragment deems is “the Truth,” while a third Input is focused on the expression of that Truth. This can be translated rather simply as a Sage having an Input for gauging his Audience (task at hand), his Truth, and how to express that to the Audience. The Artisan, having the most Inputs, is the Tao’s means to constantly keep the universe “fresh,” revitalized, and “alive.” They are the guarantee in the Universe that ideas of the Tao can continue to come into existence. All Roles are expressions of Tao, of course, but Artisans are more a direct conduit for Tao than can sometimes be comprehended by the mundane levels of life. The Single-Input Roles are focused on directly experiencing the Planes, the Dual-Input Roles are focused on expanding beyond them, the Triple-Input Role is focused on keeping the truth entertaining, and the Quintet-Input Role is focused on creating new contexts for it all. The Artisan then has one Input on the Task At Hand, another on generating creativity, another on maintaining or generating the manifestation of a previous creation, another on maintaining or generating the medium of that manifestation, and a final Input that is literally tuned to All That Has Come To Be. Artisans are CHANGE manifested; therefore they are tuned to those 5 dimensions of Creativity. This is simply a basic introduction to the Inputs and why they are distributed in this manner among the Roles, but there is a great deal more information available about these aspects of Essence. We will take your Questions now. [val2] If a sage has three inputs what happens when they have an Artisan for essence twins and task companions, are they adding to their inputs? [M_Entity] Though “bleedthrough” can tend to lend seemingly extra dimensional awareness to the default Inputs of a Role, they are NOT “added” to the Inputs. Because of the intimate nature between Essence Twins and between Task Companions, there is a level of communication and assessment that does allow a potential, alternative angle of Input, but this is no different from asking for a friend’s opinion, so to speak. The use of the “opinion” may or may not influence the ability for you to use of your own Inputs appropriately, but they do not literally get added in. [Suzanne] Michael, how does frequency tie into the one input for warrior? I have a rather high 65 for a warrior, being sage cast, and can multitask well. [M_Entity] In the younger soul ages the Inputs can tend to manifest in ways affected by the general design of the soul, but as the soul gains experience, so does it gain the ability to utilize the Input more appropriately. As the Essence evolves, so does its ability to seek out the experiences through which balance can be attained and maintained. This eventual balance applies to all extremes of design, from the highly-Focused or highly-Creative Energy Ratio to high or low Frequencies. To respond directly to your example, a simple interpretation of a Higher Frequency matched with One Input could be that the movement toward Awareness, through a Process, and to Comprehension (the triad of each Input), is “faster” than a Lower Frequency with One Input. “Multitasking” is not an indicator of the number of Inputs; it is a sign of adaptability within your current culture. A One-Input Role and a Five-Input Role can equally “multitask”, but the method and internal experience for each may be quite different. [ClaireN] Could you please explain how the last 4 Artisan inputs are experienced in a life? [M_Entity] This will be highly simplistic, but we think we may be able to describe a familiar scenario: For an Artisan, other than the Moment, or Task At Hand, there will always seem to be a need for something NEW, a search inside or out for the Muse or Inspiration. This could be said to be Channel 2. This could manifest as simply as an idea or as profoundly as a deep, spiritual inspirational move to creativity. In general then Channel 2 would be the channel that Searches, Desires, Knows, and NEEDS to create change. Channel 3 then will be focused on trying to “finish” that which has being created previously, ranging from a new job, new move, to a new art project. Channel 3 monitors your “children,” so to speak. Channel 4 then is focused on the HOW of a project or path of change. This can range from choosing your colors and clay for an art project, to designing or finding the path that is capable of actually being the conduit or medium for the creation or change. Channel 4 can be said to be your “mapping system.” Channel 5 is the broadest Channel, or Input, as it is simultaneously aware of all that has come to pass and all the probabilities of the future, and the entire dance that is possible among them. This can show up in an Artisan’s life as the part of them that is painfully aware of the past and its supposed mistakes, while desperately aware of an idealized utopia of a distant future of their making. However it shows up, it can be said to be the Channel that is constantly COMPARING. As we said, this is highly simplistic, but a bit more for you to consider as we share this information over time. [Kathryn41] How does casting influence input? Does a multi-input casting position add dimensionality to a single input role, and a single input casting position adds focus for a multi-input role? [M_Entity] Your Role in Essence is how Tao experiences the Lower Planes “through you,” while the Casting (being more permanent and pervasive) could be said to be how Tao experiences “through you” while transiting the Higher Planes. While Physical, your Casting (in terms of Input) is the most directly available “alternative” means of Input, but it is ONLY THAT, an alternative. Casting is a POSITION relative to a group, while your Role in Essence IS YOU. Casting as an alternative Input is accessed in that way VERY RARELY and usually when access to multidimensional awareness is sought. Some Channels, Healers, and legitimate Psychics tend to access Casting Input influences, if necessary. For most, it is your Role in Essence that defines your Inputs. [JNelson] It would seem every Fragment is capable of experiencing the world like the way an Artisan does through each Input. How does it manifest uniquely in an Artisan compared to everyone else? [M_Entity] We remind you that what we describe is the ESSENCE’S experience, not necessarily the Personality’s. This is where some confusion comes in. The Personality of every single Fragment, regardless of its Essence, has the ability to design Overleaves that are more or less focused, inspirational, creative, or entertaining. Examining your Overleaves in relation to the Axis can reveal the way your Personality filters the world FOR Essence. This expands on the possibilities of all Fragments then. That is why a Warrior can be absolutely creative, and an Artisan can “kick ass.” This is not to say the design of Overleaves has an effect on how Essence INPUTS, but rather, it does help explain why varying Fragments feel they EXPERIENCE or BEHAVE in ways different than our Input descriptions define. The way the Five Inputs manifest MOST uniquely could be in the final examination of how an Artisan processes a life. Artisans do not process experiences directly or with focus, but rather have varying levels of commitment to varying themes in their lives. A Warrior may find a theme and find himself compelled to stick through it until everything that can possibly be “milked” from it is. An Artisan, on the other hand, may find she has many patterns in her life, all repeating and being highlighted and revisited in varying stages of her life. The most defining aspect of the Artisan, in terms of inputs, could be said to be in their deeply restless search for “something.” Although this trait can be attributed to any fragment, we are speaking in far more profound ways than a simple distraction for a Personality. The Artisan has a “knowing” that there is so much more than what is seen and yet is it is not touchable until she creates it. This “knowing” vs “creating” can either fuse the Personality and Essence into a powerful force of creativity, or the Personality begins to splinter and reject the Essence. Delusion and retreat then become more and more the emphasis of Channel Four.
  23. OMW - Jan 12, 2013 - Checking In With Essence Channel: Troy Tolley [CocteauBoy] Okay, so today's topic is CHECKING IN WITH ESSENCE. [CocteauBoy] I thought this would be a good subject to explore because we tend to think of a new year as a turning point where we review where we've been, and look ahead at where we'd like to go. [Maureen] Will it be interactive Troy? [CocteauBoy] It's not that Essence is something separate from us, but that we (as personality) are a PART of Essence, so there is some sense of identity that is monadic (two parts that intrinsically create the whole). [CocteauBoy] So "checking in with Essence" we can think of it as checking in with something beyond ourselves, or as checking in with ourselves in a different way than usual, or whatever works for you. CocteauBoy asks - FIRST QUESTIONS: What does it mean to you to "check in with Essence," and why did this title for the workshop interest you? What do you expect to gain from this workshop? [CocteauBoy] Answer as you like... [Janet_] You mean, like, right now? [Martha] I think I do it a lot, but I think I could do it better [CocteauBoy] Janet, yeah! [Janet_] Like Martha, I think I do this, but it is hit or miss. [CocteauBoy] I want to read where each of you are with the idea, and what you thought this workshop might produce for you, before going into trance. [Martha] it's hard to tell "me" from "Essence", would like more of a sense of a conversation [AnnH] Because I don't think I'm all that good at checking in with Essence and would like to be more aware of it. [Nadine_AP] I thought it would be a good idea to keep in check while working through my 4th IM [GeraldineB] I've read and reread most of the articles on a Conscious Connection to Essence; however, I still consider it a whole lot like "praying," i.e., it's not an interactive process, I don't get feedback. So, it's like talking to thin air. [AnnH] (Exactly, Martha) [CocteauBoy] Make sure you read the question. It's not an assessment. [AnnH] Also, because it would be fun. I think my Essence is fun when I get tiny glimpses. [Janet_] I'm hoping for suggestions on how to more reliably check in and know I'm in contact. [Maureen] I see it Essence and Personality like a continuing discourse -- listening and talking. So I guess checking in with Essence would be to stop for a minute and and see where we are at. -- as a "team". [GeraldineB] Well, I'm trying to explain that this would be my "goal" or interest -- a sense of genuine interaction. [Bobby] Frequently, I'll be involved in something and will just say "oh, LET'S see where this goes" as in Let Us, me and Essence [Nadine_AP] Same as Janet and Geraldine, I would be able to make a more conscious connection, too [Diane_HB] I suppose I check in with Essence quite often, but I'd like to hear what suggestions Michael has on the subject. [Nadine_AP] *would like to be able [Bobby] I like to think of it as a partnership but like Geraldine suggested, one of the partners is blind, deaf, and mute :-) [ClaireC] I'd like to be able to truly differentiate between what the CF's are saying versus Essence feedback. [GeraldineB] I think I do pick up a fair amount of contact information through intuition, but I don't know where I end and Essence begins [CocteauBoy] I'll bring in Michael for the rest of this workshop now. If you have more to write, you can keep sharing as I go into trance. Have a great session, you guys! * CocteauBoy is bringing in Michael now... * CocteauBoy is now known as MEntity [MEntity] *********** [MEntity] The concept of "Essence" or a soul is one that is quite complicated for most who are extant, even when one is fully embracing of the general concept. [MEntity] When one is Infant, the lines between Essence and Personality are so blurred that there is no differentiation. When one is Baby, the concept is so skewed that Personality becomes the main navigator. When one is Young, the rejection of Essence is so strong, it does not matter much. [MEntity] When one is Mature, the concept is revisited through experimentation and intensities that promote a return to the blurring of differentiation. [MEntity] When one is Old, there is an eventual state that has no blurring, no skewing, and no rejection. One simply IS. [MEntity] Everything outside of that is imprinting. [MEntity] For the Old Soul, the wholeness that is Essence and Personality is inherent. To sustain a differentiation takes effort, requires lies, and feels painful in both tangible and vague ways. [MEntity] For the Old Soul, the effort to sustain a differentiation between Essence and Personality is the equivalent of trying to imagine NOTHING. Personifying Essence as something seperate from you can be useful, beneficial, and insightful, but only temporarily. To presume a personification of Essence as separate from you is like trying to sustain a the concept of Nothingness. [MEntity] If you try to imagine nothing, you imagine SOMETHING. [MEntity] You imagine something as representative of nothing. [MEntity] That is because there is no state of nothingness in the known Planes and Universes. It can only be represented, symbolically conceptualized, and usually only in comparison to something. [MEntity] The concept of Essence is similar. It never was NOT "you." It was never separate. It can never be rejected. It was always "you." [MEntity] We speak often of Essence and Personality being "separate" for the sake of learning and teaching about the various dimensions of "you," but this is no different from helping you understand how your hand functions during rehabilitation, even as your hand was always connected and a part of the whole of your body. [MEntity] The more your hand can function effectively, the more it is a part of the whole of the body. The more your Personality functions effectively, the more it is aligned with the whole of Essence. [MEntity] However, just as you focus your attention on the rehabilitation of the hand through exercises, experiences, rest, stretching, etc., it is that very "you" that transcends the divide between hand and body, between Personality and Essence. [MEntity] Because Essence is a spectrum that ranges across all Planes, Times, and Bodies, the necessity for focus is vital for the continual reawakening process, or "rehabilitation" of parts, if you will. Every lifetime is a part of the body of Essence. [MEntity] In some lifetimes, that focus is intense and myopic. In other lifetimes that focus is expansive and multidimensional. [MEntity] Relatively speaking, the Old Soul, extant, exhausts the body trying sustain differentiation of Essence from Personality. This is from the vast ocean of imprinting available from the Physical Plane about the concept of Essence, or soul. It ranges from being outrageously omnipotent and perfectly knowing, to being parental and absolute in guidance, to being non-existent. [MEntity] One thing that rarely has the same appeal and embrace is the idea that Essence... is "just you." [MEntity] In all of your mistakes, fears, cravings, longings, excitement, desires, appetites, pride, aloneness, joy, intimacy, distance, beauty, plainness, extravagance, indulgance, restraint, sadness, happiness, failing, successes, etc. YOU are Essence. [MEntity] From the perspective of Essence, the experiences of the Physical Plane and body are never NOT new. It may have experienced sadness a million times, but this does not mean it transcends the experience of sadness. No matter how many times a hand may touch HOT, it will always be HOT. [MEntity] Consider that no matter how many times you touch HOT within a lifetime, it will always be HOT, and always a new HOT; t is still always HOT, and always NEW. For Essence, across a multitude of bodies, that experience is never old, and never not true, and never not meaningful. [MEntity] This is the same of your experiences beyond mere touch. [MEntity] The only difference in your experience is your focus. [MEntity] When you first touch HOT, it may seem the end of the world, but when you have touched it a thousand times, it is still HOT, but you know you will survive. You know it is temporary. You know it is a natural part of experience. You know it is informative. You know. [MEntity] Expand upon this and you have your phases of depression, your phases of joy, your phases of intimacy, your phases of aloneness, lifetimes of suffering, your lifetimes of bliss, and Essence grows to know that it can survive it all, learn from it, and always gain from the experience. Always. [MEntity] By the time you are an Old Soul, you know this, too. And it gets harder to not know this. [MEntity] Because, by now, you know: You Are Essence. [GeraldineB] Question: If we are Essence, then why would we need to check in? [MEntity] You can pretend, imagine, lie, presume, fantasize, romanticize, and fragment yourself as Essence, but you will still know. [MEntity] Geraldine, Troy described the topic for our discussion with you; we are prompted by that description. We do not hand these topics to Troy. He decides upon them from his own ideas and perceptions. [GeraldineB] [laughing] OK [MEntity] However, we will return to that description in a moment, as it is relevant. [GeraldineB] Nevermind the interruption :) [Martha] ha h aha [MEntity] However focused one may be within Personality, one is always Essence. Even "the worst" of peoples. This is because Essence is vastly inclusive and incapable of truly rejecting experiences that parts of itself (Personality) bring to it. [MEntity] To presume that one person is not of Essence over another is like a fish judging another fish for not being of the same body of water. To try to convince someone of Essence, then, instead of allowing for their own growth and awakening, is about as useful as a fish trying to get another fish wet. [MEntity] "Checking in" with Essence is a valid phrase to consider while within a lifetime and body because most forms of "checking in" only occur in death. Death is the ultimate "checking in." [AnnH] lol [GeraldineB] Good Ole 7th IM [MEntity] As you embrace the idea of your being Essence, you will find that the phrase of "checking in with Essence" means something even more profound that previously romanticized. It is a checking in with yourself. [MEntity] This may not be as romantic as the idea of checking in with some higher parental guidance and force that is laced with religious and cultural imprinting, but it is far more profound and empowering. It is the ultimate responsibility for your life, your choices, you. [MEntity] Before we continue: How do you feel or think about this ownership of Essence as YOU, with Personality merely being a focus, instead of as a concept of being a flailing fragment tethered to omnipotence? [Martha] "flailing fragment tethered to omnipotence" lol [Martha] I do feel comfortable with it [GeraldineB] Well, I accept that fragment is a part of Essence, is the spiritual body, but I don't quite understand how Essence can be ME and still not be tuned into whatever I'm doing [Nadine_AP] It feels right. [Martha] I feel like Essence IS tuned in, but I don't feel much of a sense of conversation, other than just talking to myself [GeraldineB] Well, it's the paradox of Personality having all choice, not Essence . . they design, we dispose. [Janet_] I am comfortable about the concept. [Diane_HB] I think this is a much more peaceful concept than thinking of myself or others as separate from Essence. [AnnH] What Martha said. [MEntity] Geraldine: what makes you think Essence is not tuned in to "whatever you are doing?" [GeraldineB] If they are tuned in, I wouldn't need to review or check-in [MEntity] Geraldine, this presumption would not be true. [MEntity] Even while in a body, stretches of time can pass where you were fully engaged in your day, but if we were to ask you about a specific day and what meal you had on that day, or what someone said to you that day, or what tv show was watched on a certain day and time, you may not be able to call up that memory to save your life, so to speak, even though "you were there." [MEntity] However, you may find that you remember entire experiences from even further back in time. [MEntity] This is the difference between "checking in" and not. [GeraldineB] Do you mean that checking in is actually a way of accessing forgotten memories? [MEntity] Your brain will continue to store all experiences, from the most minute to the most profound. Your Essence absorbs all experiences for the Akashic Records, like a brain for the soul, but what matters to it is "remembered," and this can be enhanced through "checking in." [Maureen] I never feel disconnected from Essence. When I feel separate is when I know "I" am making a conscious choice to disregard Essence for awhile. When I do that I feel like a kid who wants to experience something on her own -- without any "influence". [MEntity] Checking in can help recall, but we prefer the term to be thought of less as a tool, and more of as a state. [MEntity] By this we mean: [MEntity] When you feel disconnected from Essence, in need of guidance, support, etc, that you not dismiss YOU as the greatest force behind your own life, choices, feelings, memories, plans, etc. but that you "check in" with yourself, allow for all of the feelings and fears, but not at the expense of your power, force, presence, and wholeness. [MEntity] Wholeness allows for all of it, so fear and panic do not need to be rejected for wholeness to return. Ironically, in the embrace of your wholeness and power, the fear tends to dissipate, transform. [MEntity] Checking in with Essence is a return to you. A recollection of the fragmentation of your mind, your heart, and even your body. [GeraldineB] this makes sense to me [MEntity] It is a moment, a practice, and eventually a state, that makes room for all of it without forgetting. It is ownership of your KNOWING. [MEntity] Your fragmentation, your fear, is merely forgetfullness. [MEntity] You cannot UN-know, but you can forget. [MEntity] Checking in is a practice in remembering. [MEntity] Keep in mind: [MEntity] In the same way that you do not have to consciously breath, neither do you have to presume that your knowing, your embrace of self as Essence, means having conscious access to all that is Essence. The hand does not have to understand the eye for itself to work, and the eye does not have to control metabolism for it to work, and metabolism does not have to know how to walk for the body to move, and so on. [MEntity] However, no part can be said to function independently of the whole that is the body. [MEntity] And so it is for you, as a part of all that is Essence. The hand is itself and does its own thing that the eye cannot, and the body, as a whole, gains from functioning of the hand. The hand, then, for its best and highest functioning, would consider itself as the whole, even if not completely aware and monitoring of all of the parts. To presume itself cut off, or to not consider the whole, is akin to being numb, or amputated, which benefits neither the hand or the body. [MEntity] The more you own your part in the body of Essence, the more the whole and all of its parts functions and benefits. [MEntity] This ownership of remembering, responsibility, power, presence, and wholeness is more than half of the battle for getting the best out of your life, healing the past, and creating the future. [MEntity] Before we move on, we will open the floor to your comments and questions regarding what has been shared, so far. [MEntity] ****** [Diane_HB] This makes sense to me. I have been moving toward this perspective in some ways. [Diane_HB] And, I check in with myself fairly frequently. I don't feel "myself" if I don't. [Maureen] You are right Michael -- in that people are often looking for omnipotence or some woowoo with Essence when actually Essence can be quite quiet and will "come to you" when you are still or "in the moment". [MEntity] The search for Essence is much like the search for a lost pair of sunglasses that are later found to be on your head. [Diane_HB] lol [Maureen] LOL [Martha] :) [Diane_HB] I know what that's like. :) [Nadine_AP] lol [AnnH] heh [Maureen] I'm getting a 3D Deja Vu on the sunglasses -- maybe I dreamed about this last night. [Bobby] Is any fragmentation caused if you imagine the relationship as a partnership? [MEntity] Bobby, as you may have come to see over time, the concept of "fragmentation" is even more of an illusion (a useful one, but an illusion, still the same) than the concept that one is seperate from Essence. To personify Essence can be helpful, even if as a temporary illusion. Dreams are illusions, but the symbolism is incredibly useful. Illusions (and fragmentation) are not to be thought of as things to avoid, but tools for use as necessary. When they are considered conclusive, then they can become problematic. [MEntity] Fragmentation is merely scattered foci. [MEntity] Illusions are merely symbolic extensions. [MEntity] Both are useful and important. [MEntity] Neither can sustain continuity or existence for long, relatively speaking. [MEntity] We highly recommend personifying Essence, particularly so if one can do so while holding the contradictory notion that it is not separate. [MEntity] We can recommend this, because Essence already does this. In being you, in the first place. [GeraldineB] Sparky! [Bobby] :-) [MEntity] And it is the nature of Tao. Our fragmentation from Tao is a profoundly beautiful and useful illusion, and all of our bodies through the planes are always creative personifications of our most current idea of who we are. [MEntity] The differences in higher planes is that we have learned to enjoy it more, to allow it, and to know that all of it changes. [MEntity] Your body, no matter how battered, worn, sick, suffering, pleasured, fat, skinny, ugly, beautiful, is your own idea, given form. All descriptions of our body that are born of comparison are as superficial and temporary as a preference for chocolate over vanilla, or one brand over another. [MEntity] Those preferences are meaningful and provide their own part in the dance of experience, but they will never supercede the perfection of reflection. [MEntity] This is not to say that one must accept his or her lot in life with the body that one has, but that the dance that your body prompts is far more relevant than your preoccupation with it for comparison. [MEntity] It is not YOUR Body. It is YOU. [MEntity] It is not YOUR Essence. It is YOU. [MEntity] Checking in with Essence, then, is the embrace of yourself as part of the bridging of all of these parts. [MEntity] If you are in this particular workshop, you are probably "done" with the distraction of fragmentation and the weight of being bothered with superficial comparisons. You know this. You cannot un-know it. But remembering this, and returning yourself from forgetfullness, is something you must take on as your responsibility from here. [MEntity] This is where this teaching is intended to help move your consciousness. Not just toward the novelty and brief comforts of remembering, but toward your capacity to live in that remembering, in your knowing. In Essence. [Martha] Sounds like vividry [MEntity] Here are three things that you can note to yourself as phrases for sustaining your wholeness, and allowing for everything to exist within that: [MEntity] When you feel ugly, fearful, anxious, upset, angry, helpless, lonely, etc. we suggest that you embrace those things, but always along with the phrase, "It is okay for me to forget for a while." [MEntity] This conscious embrace of forgetfullness does two things: relieves you of the internal conflict of fighting against those natural reactions, feelings, and thoughts so that they can move through like thunder clouds in the sky of who you are, but also, ironically, keeps you from actually forgetting. [MEntity] On a daily basis, at various points in the day, when nothing in particular is happening, it can be helpful to state out loud, or internally: "I remember now: I like me." [MEntity] This simple phrase can do two things, as well: it can bring a moment of remembering and awareness, of course, but it can also be a confession against all of your imprinting and superficialities of being bad, wrong, ugly, too fat, too thin, too alone, not enough, etc. This confession is more truthful than any of those things. [MEntity] You may only barely like yourself, and you can always like yourself more and more as you aim for agape, but if you are breathing, you like yourself enough, to some small degree, and this outweighs all of the "bullshit." [MEntity] We pause now to ask each of you to answer this question as sincerely and as honestly as you feel inclined: DO YOU LIKE YOU? [Diane_HB] YES!! [Maureen] YES!! [Janet_] I do like me. [GeraldineB] Yes, I do! [AnnH] For the most part. [ClaireC] Yes. [AnnH] Actually, I get a big kick out of myself. [Bobby] I will say it's much easier when everything is not taken so seriously :-) [Nadine_AP] yes, i do [Martha] Yes! [MEntity] We only ask this question to help you in seeing if you prefer forgetting over remembering. You would not be in this workshop, studying our teaching, wishing for more people to accept you, trying to accept others, standing up against injustices, moved by suffering, aiming for higher visions, etc, if you did not like yourselves to some great extent. [MEntity] Everything beyond your liking yourself is a lie, is imprinting, is useless for anything more than information about how to make your next choices and decisions. [MEntity] The third suggestion of phrasing that we can offer, then, is that part of your remembering include that it is okay that others may also tend to forget. Just like you do. Even more so, that many have not even remembered, yet. They may not know, like you do. [MEntity] "The more often I remember, the more often others can know." [MEntity] This is because you are the trainer of your reality, which is just to say that you are the one who chooses how you experience EVERYTHING. There are no exceptions. You may not be able to choose everything that happens to you, but you will always have the choice in what that means for you, and how you experience it. [MEntity] The more often you forget, the more likely your world is experienced as forgetful. [MEntity] The more often you pretend to not like yourself, the more likely you would keep others from their opportunity to like you. [MEntity] The more often you presume that others must remember and know as you do, the more you are forgetting, and making excuses for your forgetting. [Maureen] Michael -- so Alex Jones and Larry Pratt have just forgotten who they are? How can we see them as "Essence"? [AnnH] hrh [AnnH] heh [Martha] hahaha [MEntity] Maureen: there must be a remembering and knowing before there can be a forgetting. [Maureen] so their forgetting is a choice to forget -- with Essence "on board" with Personality? [Maureen] just like it is for the "rest" of us? [MEntity] The inherent nature of fragmentation, personification, and the Physical Plane, in particular, is amnesia. Evolution is a process of remembering. Forgetfullness, in higher terms, is a defense against responsibility and ownership. [MEntity] Every lifetime is a practice in remembering. Every death is a practice in "checking in." [AnnH] I love that. [MEntity] Your notions that a "bad guy" is less Essence than that of a "good guy" is based on a romantic idea that Essence is already "good." It is not. It simply IS. It goes through its processes of growth just as an individual personality does. That is why we describe Soul Ages. [MEntity] Soul Age describes where one is in the capacity for remembering while in a body. [GeraldineB] And the circle is rejoined and completed [MEntity] It also describes where Essence is in its capacity to remember its path home. [GeraldineB] OH . . .please expand on that [MEntity] Or rather, that it never left home/Tao. [MEntity] Soul Age is a description of the process from fragmentation toward reunion. [MEntity] Keep in mind that horrific personalities and the choices they make are not much different to the body of an Essence than one's choice in diet while in a body. The soul is omnivorous. It can survive the most toxic of experiences. The personality is the feeder of Essence. [MEntity] Your choices, and interpretations of experience, feed Essence, feed you. In much the same way that your realizations of what you eat actually do matter to your body, so do the Personalities, eventually, with their ever-growing capacity for remembering, begin to choose more consciously as to what its diet of experience is. [MEntity] So it is fair and useful to "see" the Essence of even the most hurtful of people, because your remembering of their soul helps. Your condemnation is pointless. Remembering the Essence of any individual is not the same thing as conceding to their actions and impact. It simply gives you a broader footing for what choices you will make, yourself. [MEntity] All of what we shared today helps in your creation of your next moment. And as you can see from where you are in your life right now, those moments add up. They become your life. [Maureen] ...I can do that. Thanks for helping me remember more Micheal :) [Maureen] (my comment was related to seeing other people's Essences...) [MEntity] And your life is no different from your body. It is something that benefits from your compassion and embrace, not your comparisons for condemnations. Your experiences of your life are your own idea and feelings, given form (interpretation) across time, in memory, and in motivation. It is Good Work to see your Essence across all of this, to see you, in everything. [MEntity] Today, in this workshop, if you have been engaged, you have "checked in" with Essence. [MEntity] While we did not share the words in this exchange with you merely to elicited comforting feelings, we did share them with you so that you can remember that you CAN be comfortable in your skin, in your body, in your life, in Essence. When you just take a moment to remember. To check in. [MEntity] And you did not have to die, to do so. [Martha] whew [Diane_HB] Heheh [Nadine_AP2] hahaha [Nadine_AP2] yeah, good. [GeraldineB] Neither did Ann when she changed Soul Levels [AnnH] hahaha [AnnH] Not this time, anyway. [GeraldineB] Maybe that was the real purpose of doing it . . .to experience brith / death / brith while conscious [AnnH] yes, I think so [MEntity] We will conclude with one last consideration: [MEntity] Remembering others, even when they forget themselves, is healing, is helpful, is meaningful. It is not lost on them, even if you cannot see proof of that. [MEntity] This is why we "came back" to teach. [MEntity] Because we remembered you, too. [MEntity] Everyone will inherently, eventually, remember "everything," but it helps if there is someone who remembers what you forgot. [MEntity] Or what you do not even know, yet. [MEntity] Good day to each of you.

    Proof of Essence

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2005 Open Q&A] [Tibtyk] Greetings, Michael. “Essence” is, to be honest, mainly a word for me. Possibly a feeling, too, but vaguely so, at least not on a conscious level. How can I prove its existence to myself? And how to make the contact between Essence and Personality stronger, more reliable and more intimate? And, of course, more conscious. [Michael_Entity] The most powerful “proof” you have of your Essence is in any mirror you pass. It is only a matter of perception as to where you see the line drawn between “you” and “essence.” In the same way that one could ask for proof of Love, only symptoms can be highlighted or emphasized, giving an indication that something valid, yet amorphous, is involved. The line between “you” and “essence” is an illusion, so to simply see yourself as alive, animated, choosing… this is the most tangible proof. However, there are experiments to which you can invite your essence to partake. Essence delights in the opportunity to exist alongside the Personalities it creates. We cannot emphasize that enough. Much like an awkward parent standing on the sidelines from a teen who thinks he is “all that,” when Personality turns to Essence and asks if it wants to join, it is immediately available and with tremendous amounts of energy, truth, and love. Adjust your inner and outer vision to a decisive stance that you are gently and enthusiastically open to Essence. Then determine what you would like to have as “proof.” It could be as simple as a synchronicity or as complicated as a change in your life. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness at 7:07 every day. And watch this happen. Ask Essence to bring itself to your awareness by helping infuse you with the energy and empowerment to alter your life to a point of absolute abundance on your terms. And watch what happens. In all cases of experimentation, YOU will be key. You will not see the 7:07 unless you LOOK. You will not experience the abundance you seek unless you DO. And in the end, you will then find the greatest proof of Essence, is you.
  25. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (2 of 3)] [nemo999] Regarding symbols, does essence have a natural language instead of words, I am thinking of thoughts, feelings, pictures instead of English or Chinese for example? [Michael_Entity] The Language of Essence is transparent, so to speak. It is relative to the listener. Essence cannot communicate any other way. On the Astral, it is understood that you will never “see” the true Essence you are communicating to, unless you resonate. Otherwise, every Essence sees its version of other Essences that makes the most sense of the energy that is “other”. Therefore, while physical, Essence will appear, communicate, behave, in whatever fashion the personality imposes or chooses. This is why we suggest being conscious of what you feel is symbolic of Essence. This will heighten your conscious connection. The idea of Power Animals is a valid means to achieve this. Choosing a number that then shows up occasionally on clocks, receipts, etc. This is a valid reminder and connection to Essence. There are a multitude of ways and you may create many paths for these. And then there will finally be the symbolic realization that you can simply BE your Essence, meaning, after you have begun building a foundation of trust and validity as to what your Essence is, you may then simply ACT as Essence.
