  1. Ingun found this session buried in documents on her computer. Thanks to Ingun for ensuring that it gets shared! August 10, 2003 AGREEMENTS, CORDS, and PARALLELS MichaelEntity: We will speak on the subject of what we refer to as Agreements. "Agreement" is most directly defined within our teaching as a "casual, non-binding preconceived agenda created between two (or among many) for the sake of a mutual or directly impacting experience." Before a lifetime is physically begun, the Essence has anticipated many contexts within the lifetime and in that anticipation knows that certain other fragments are required for certain experiences. As part of that anticipation, Essence seeks out fragments who share in similar paths, or who may need some reciprocating event, or who may simply be interested in the experiences being anticipated. There are a number of contexts for which preconceived Agreements are arranged. Some examples might be in the areas of Matedness, Child-bearing, and Pivotal/Facilitator experiences. Agreements are made on a personal level and on a group level. Some of your Agreements are, for instance, to meet another fragment and try out Matedness. Some of your Agreements are, for instance, with a group of fragments, such as with your Entity and Cadre, to try out the teachings of a non-physical Entity during a span of lifetimes. We remind you that Agreements are NON-binding. No Agreement is static, nor is it a commitment. It is an Agreement. While between lives, the anticipation of the upcoming life can set up hundreds of Agreements, but as the life actually unfolds and the Personality is in charge of making decisions, the Agreements can be abdicated, delayed, or altered. The management of Agreements is usually done from the perception of Essence, so there is usually no need to be too concerned. As the soul grows in awareness, though, the participation of the Personality becomes extremely important in the process of Agreements. To accommodate the Personality and its own experience of navigating the Physical Plane, the Personality has complete "say" in creating, altering, or delaying any Agreements, regardless of plans generated before the life. The Essence may have set up a Mate Agreement for a certain period of the life, but has come to find that the fragment in Agreement has taken up smoking and heavy drinking, which is far from compatible with the Personality. The Personality may have made it very clear to Essence through varying means that he or she is incompatible with a smoker or an alcoholic. In that case, new Agreements may be generated to accommodate the Personality. In other instances, the smoker may have died or be in alcoholic rehabilitation for the time frame of the original Agreement. This can result in an abdication or a prompting from the Personality to have Essence "set up something else." In other words, Agreements can be made at any time and are extremely malleable, including the wishes of the Personality. Most fragments retain most of the original Agreements made before the lifetime, even if new ones are made, especially as an Older Soul because the perceptions as Essence vs. Personality become more and more synchronized for the creation of the life. Agreements are made as Primary or Secondary. Primary Agreements are those made with the original intentions and participants, while Secondary Agreements are those made with fragments who agree to be “back ups.” If you have a Secondary Agreement, the fulfillment can come like a surprise compulsion or distraction until your life adjusts to the need for your participation in that Agreement. If you need one of your own Secondary Agreements to stand in, you may find a shift of direction that may seem surprising and disorienting at first, because the Primary Agreement has abdicated. Secondary Agreements are made when it is highly important for that particular experience to be gained. Some of our channels use these terms without comprehension and this can be confusing to the student. In those instances, we usually find our student through an alternative channel and clarify the context. While the notion of Agreements may seem intangible, there are skills that can be developed by the Personality as a means to navigate the lifetime more consciously so as to fulfill Agreements, or attract/find those Agreements of interest. Many competent Astrologers, for instance, can calculate varying Agreements by looking at the transits occurring for an individual. We can elaborate on our astrological methods in another gathering, if there are those who are interested. Agreements are fulfilled by entering what we call a Sequence. A Sequence is the steps taken to fulfill an Agreement that then become a kind of acceleration toward that fulfillment. Although Agreements can be abdicated, altered or delayed, once the Sequence has begun, the abdication or alteration can tend to have more impact. If the alteration or abdication is mutual (or at least mutually understood), it is relatively uneventful, but if the abdication is one-sided, the effect can be as devastating or uneventful as the other fragment’s chosen reaction. Most of the stronger reactions to an abdication are in the realm of intimacy, such as Business Partnerships, or Mate Agreements. If two fragments agree to matedness, and one abdicates after the Sequence has begun, the experience can be quite painful. This does not mean one is obligated to an Agreement once one has started, but in the process of understanding Agreements, it is fair to consider the impact of your choices on your Agreements. The fulfillment of an Agreement, once a Sequence has begun, can feel quite compelling, but it is not Karmic. Karma is a search for balance among extremes, while Agreements are a search for basic experiences. Agreements are not always what would be considered "positive." Sometimes an Agreement can be as bizarre as making sure one is in the right place at the right time to have a car slide on ice to then impact another car, providing the other person with an exit point from the life. In fact, many "accidents" are simply Agreements. Synchronicity of events to fulfill agreements is neutral, but how you interpret those events is the key to how they impact you or another fragment. We will begin taking questions now because of the limitation of time, but the subject is capable of being explored more deeply. SilverOne126: how do you determine what is an agreement and what is monadal? How do the basics differ? thank you MichaelEntity: External Monads ARE Agreements. [definition: External Monads are strong Agreements between 2 people to experience one side of a particular kind of classic relationship, such as Husband/Wife, Parent/Child, Slovenly/Meticulous, Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved, etc.] A Monad may seem more compelling because of the submersion in the Sequence, as mentioned previously, but it is still a form of Agreement. In the same way that one may make an Agreement for Matedness, one would make an Agreement to complete a Monad together. If a person is in a Monad, an Agreement has been struck. In the same way that any Agreement can be abdicated, any Monad may be interrupted, though the impact is quite strong. slacnj: My question is, aside from being in the positive poles of Overleaves, how can you contact essence or other sources to attract more agreements if nothing is happening in your life? MichaelEntity: When you have made conscious contact with Essence, you would then specifically determine what kind of Agreements you wish to attract/create/find. We have suggested to many of our students a method for examining Agreements in the life, and we will share that method briefly. slacnj: if essence sets them up, you have to contact it to have them MichaelEntity: No. In most instances, if you simply live your life as you choose, you will wander your way to any Agreements that may be standing. On the other hand, if you are an Older Soul who wishes to participate more in generating Agreements, you can use the method to follow. Agreements are attracted/found/created among fragments through the finer connections shared among fragments “stretching” from the Chakras, or Centers. We refer to these connections as CORDS, an almost non-physical means of communication among fragments. Cording was evolved before language and is now so intrinsic to human interaction, it is quite unconscious. While Cording is a phenomenon that is basic to any interaction, Agreements are a specific kind of Cording. Cords could be described as the frequency, or resonance of particular Chakras with another fragment's Chakra, most easily visualized as an elastic-like cord. If one were to have a general visualization of the auric body, one would find hundreds of cords streaming from the body out into the world and connected to loved ones, friends, and complete strangers. Of course, the “cords” are merely a means to visualize something finer, but the image works. Cords coming from the "front" of your body are those you have consciously allowed to connect with you and your energy system. Cords streaming from the "back" of your body are those you have accepted unconsciously or out of obligation, etc., from people who are "leaching" your energy system. Of course, ALL Cords are attached to you through some level of consent. The Cords are never imposed upon your energy system. In the same way that you might not realize you have food stuck in your teeth, Cording from "behind" is attained as easily. Cords from the "front" are uplifting, energizing, and inspiring, while Cords from the "back" are draining, tiring, and depressing. Cords from the “back” can be those left from old relationship issues, from strangers curious about you, “crushes,” distanced relationships, being exposed publicly (such as on stage), etc. We use the words Front and Back as a convenience and as a means to simplify your visualizations, but there is not literally a front or back to your energy system. If you wish to attract or create Agreements beyond the scope of the original life plan, you might begin with a practice of Auric Hygiene, visually cleansing your energy system of the draining cords, then inviting the new ones. Cords can be cleansed from your energy system by being submerged in water, or through a visualization process. If using water, we suggest simply "washing" the cords from your "back" as you shower or bathe, imagining the fine cords dropping from your back and freeing your energy. If just using visualization, we suggest "draping" a mesh “shawl” of gold light from head to toe, "burning off" the cords from behind. The mesh is visualized as a shawl draped over your head and around your shoulders, and down the length of your back. Imagining the shawl remaining on you throughout the day can help divert unwanted cording, as well. To specifically invite or create an Agreement, one would clearly define/state/invite them. Consider exactly what it is you are inviting into your life, for what reason, and clarifying the potential mutual benefit. This would then need to be clearly stated to your Essence, either verbally, in writing, or as approaching sleep. Next, we always suggest INVITING an Agreement, since an Agreement involves another fragment accommodating your request. Imagine that you are making psychological room for this new agreement and ask yourself/Essence what steps need to be taken to attract this into your life. Pay attention to your impulses, trust your Essence, and comfort any desperation you may have. There are two ways to repel any Agreements from being fulfilled: By never actively socializing or interacting with other fragments and by falling into a sense of desperation and neediness that can repel even the most loving of Agreements. If you do not interact with the world, you cannot fairly expect the world to find you on your couch in your living room, for instance. If you panic with emotional need and desperation, making no effort to nurture yourself in the ways you may wish another to provide you, then even the most loving of fragments may be repelled. Most Agreements are fulfilled because they will “make a difference” or because they are fun. To simply wish another fragment to rescue you from some aspect of your life, be it emotional or material, can be the equivalence of inviting a fragment into a “black hole.” When you consciously INVITE an Agreement, and then turn lovingly back to your life, trusting the process, the space and time is then more easily generated to make those Agreements move into Sequences. BradburySE: I want you to confirm or deny something, although I think you've touched on it already. Is it true, to say that an Agreement with another cannot be abrogated at the personality level once essence has decided absolutely to go ahead with it? If essence has decided to follow through, the personality can no longer abrogate the initial stages by moving away, for instance? And if essence has decided to "skip it", nothing the personality can do will make it happen? MichaelEntity: No, that is absolutely false. Essence has no investments in corralling the Personality into some kind of contrived, “fated” funnel of experiences. Essence has as many parallels as needed to accommodate the varying reactions and decisions of the Personality across time. [NOTE from Troy: “Parallels” are dimensional “spin offs” of reality created when you make a major choice, leaving other choices behind. In truth, those choices are explored as well, in another version of reality just as “real” as the one you consider your own.] There will always be at least one version of the Personality that will seek to follow the original ideas of the Essence, but Essence finds great excitement in the creativity of the Personality as it makes its own decisions, creating far more avenues of experience than even Essence could generate from its perspective. Essence has a broader perspective of the life, but it relies entirely on the Personality for navigation through the Physical Plane. Agreements are also flexible enough that they can shift, if necessary. If an Agreement was made to meet a fragment by bumping into him at a certain corner, and your Personality gets distracted by an ice cream parlor long enough to miss the meeting, the two Essences will find this humorous and simply reschedule. The Agreement is delayed or altered and Essence gets to experience the delicious joy of a spontaneous delight of dessert. We will say, however, that if only one of the parties involved abdicates the Agreement, nothing can be done to force one back into an Agreement. Kieran O Shea: What happens when two parallels die? Are they integrated into the essence? MichaelEntity: Yes, if a version of the Personality "dies" in a parallel, it gets its own version of the afterlife, as it awaits the conclusion of all parallel versions of Personality. The afterlife and review experience is sustained until the last of the parallels "die" wherein the entirety of varying parallels are then examined by Essence. In most cases the next life begins with the knowledge and experiences gained across all of the previous life’s parallels. As the Soul ages and becomes more adept at creating lives, multiple separate starts of the next life can be of interest to Essence, which we refer to as concurrent lifetimes [having multiple bodies and personalities on the planet with the same time and space]. All of you here have had at least 3 or more versions of your Personality "die" in some parallels by now. These deaths DO NOT affect the remaining Parallels. flimflamdamn: is there some impact of that event in one's life? MichaelEntity: Some fragments can begin to consciously or unconsciously bridge a few parallels and sense the deaths. This comes from a strong connection to Essence, and while the deaths may not strongly affect a sensitive parallel Personality, a vague sense of grief may be felt. upstaate: is this life the main trunk and the rest are parallels? MichaelEntity: There are many Parallels that could be said to make up the "trunk," but we remind you that even the most remote of parallels branched from the trunk are as "real" as any other. We also remind you that while friends, family, etc., can exist within the same space, some may be in their "trunk" reality while others are not. It has been thought that the ideal parallels would be as close to your "trunk reality" as possible, since this is the path most harmonious with Essence's original ideas for the life, but that is not necessarily the case. The reason for this assumption is because most of the branching parallels have been created from the decisions and choices made from the level of Personality, which can be made as a result of ignoring Essence. Any reality that disconnects from Essence can be difficult, and it is not unusual that a “branch” parallel is created from that disconnection. The “trunk” realities are inherently connected to Essence, so the perception can be that one “should” be as close to that trunk as possible, then. What many do not consider is that if any "branch" reality seeks to invite Essence as part of that path, harmony and connection is generated as much for that Personality as any other. In all Parallels the Personality Overleaves are the same, but the use of the Overleaves may be very different. It does not matter from which parallel "you" exist. You are as real as any other. Invite Essence to participate and co-create, if you choose. We will conclude here. Our channel has had a long day of work with us. We realize there are many directions and depths we can explore in this topic, and we will eventually do so with those of you interested. Good night to all of you.
  2. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: October 2009] [Question] How many essences do most essences choose to do many external monads with? Getting confused with what I’ve read, can’t find much in depth material. I know we do them all at least once, and to get to the love monad you do a certain group of them with the same essence, and some choose to do more than one love monad. That seems like a lot of monads to get through. Also, I can’t find any description of the love monad beyond the general experiencing agape, etc, and it’s not necessarily a mate thing, could be other relationships, right? Is this something usually done with ET and/or just a few other close essences? [Michael Entity] Most fragments tend to work in all of the major (classic) external monads in a way that leads to a Love Monad with at least 12 other fragments. Once the Love Monad is completed, this fragment becomes what we refer to as a Heart Link. Most fragments tend to develop at least 12 Heart Links. This may seem like a lot of external monads to complete, and it is, but keep in mind that many of these can be completed with multiple fragments within the same lifetime; many can be reciprocated within a single lifetime; and as Essence evolves and experiments with Concurrents, this adds more possibility for fulfillment. Over approximately 100 lifetimes or more, this is easily accomplished. Many fragments choose to fulfill external monads with those Essences most available and/or already linked, such as Essence Twins, Traveling Companions, the Primary Task Companion, and then those Task Companions who are added after the cycle begins. The Love Monad is not necessarily a final monad, but simply the Monad that moves two fragments into a final process of Agape. In other words, the commitment to truly Love one another has now been made. In that commitment, the Love Monad would show up as a commitment within the lifetime to “re-visit” literally or symbolically ALL Monads that have come to be fulfilled with one another. The reason for this is because True Love, or Agape, requires comprehension, and the Personalities attempt to truly grasp the magnitude of each other in the Love Monad. Most try to complete the Love Monad within a single lifetime, but we see that up to three lifetimes tend to be the average. [Question] Does this imply that the Love Monad occurs between fragments of the same soul age? [Michael Entity] Yes, and rarely before the Old Soul cycle. [Question] Are the “classic” ones that full set of about 30 I’ve seen around various places, or a subset? [Michael Entity] The “classic” set of monads have been listed elsewhere, yes, but we will also include those in the final transcript. [see end of transcript] Though the classics are often preferred, the Love Monad is not limited to having only done the classics. Many Love Monads arise from including a few rather rare or original external monads. Once a Love Monad is completed, ALL “charge” between those fragments is neutralized. In other words, those with Heart Links tend to rarely feel more than soft admiration and embrace of one another. *Classic External (relationship) Monads Teacher/Student; Parent/Child; Imprinter/Imprinted; Siblings (brother/brother, brother/sister, sister/sister); Husband/Wife; Leader/Follower; Attacker/Victim; Healer/Healed; Rescuer/Rescued; Integrator/Eccentric; Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved; Passionate/Repressed; Dependent/Independent; Pivotal Facilitator/Facilitated; Slovenly/Meticulous; Passive/Aggressive; Adept/Apprentice; Artist/Patron; Deserter/Abandoned; Profligate/Tempered; Innocent/Sophisticate; Promiscuous/Impotent; Master/Slave; Player/Pawn; Defender/Defended; Hidden/Disclosed; Slander/Slandered; Jailer/Prisoner; Tandem Monad; Love Monad

    Student Agreements

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 2005] [sandt1222] Thank you. I still have a lot of questions of the basics. Tonight I would like to ask about the significance of the student groups who study together and the channel they choose. [M Entity] Channels through whom we work (and channels who claim to work with us, but do not actually channel us) are all in some kind of Agreement with the students who are attracted to them. Some channels and teachers have Karma among their students, and the dynamic of their attraction to each other is based on that Karmic structure. Those who are attracted to Troy's channeling of us are in some way linked to the exploration of Perfect Imperfection; or put another way, “absolute comprehension, compassion, and acceptance of Self and Other.” For other channels, a student may be attracted to Empowerment themes, Relationship themes, Reality Dynamic themes, etc. It could then be said that each valid channel attracts three kinds of relationships: Monads, Agreements, and Karma. These Monads, Agreements, and Karma would be among the students as well as between channel and student. *** Definitions: Monad: A single unit of experience comprised of two polarized parts that eventually create inherent lessons and resolutions. There are internal and external Monads. Agreement: A casual commitment to share a specific experience usually made on a non-physical level of communication. Karma: The attempt to resolve a previous interference of someone’s choices that resulted in some kind of intensity.
  4. December 4, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [M Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will respond to your questions as they are presented, and we will begin with “freyaisis.” [freyaisis] Michael, would you give us a mini energy report for the end of the year and starting a new year? Thank you. [M Entity] It appears to us that most of our students, let alone the general population, are finally feeling the pressures of the energy of the Chief Features for this year: Self-deprecation/Arrogance. October through December tends to emphasize a reflection on the life, on the year that has just passed, and this can sometimes lean one toward the energy that collectively builds as so many fragments contribute to the energies that are the chief negative features for the year. In this case, collectively, there is an emphasis on the seeming personal lack of importance, inadequacy, flaws, differences, outdated wounds, self-esteem, etc. When the “season of the Chief Negative Feature” comes up, this is not to overwhelm the fragment with a negative outlook on his or her life, but it is intended to allow group support and empathy during a time of reflection. For all fragments there is an average of two weeks of this reflection during the 3 months of emphasis on the chief negative features. This reflection happens in waves and groups. Groups of fragments carrying common themes, resonance, agreements, karma, etc. will then drop in energy as this reflection manifests, creating a wave that will then spread outward from fragment to fragment. Other groups will have done the same, leaving a wave of reflection to then “hit” you at least once more before the “season” is over. Quite often, your particular group may have had very little need for reflection, but the waves of other groups will still instill a sense of melancholy, at the very least. Imagining several pebbles dropped into a body of water with the ripples crossing and affecting other spaces (interference patterns) can give you an idea of how the Chief Feature season works in its effect. It is very difficult to “escape” the effects of the Chief Negative Features. Many can avoid or dismiss the other Overleaves as they are emphasized earlier in the year, but all who are alive will face their fears every year in some way, some how. This is part of the agreements made with the self and with the species as part of the cycles of incarnation. We share all of this background with you at this time as this sheds light on why there are such “highs” and “lows” during the “holiday season.” It may be simplistic to describe the energy as “rippling,” but this helps understand the sense of waves that propel you or drop you during this time. Regardless of your own chief negative features, this season will emphasize the questions and self-assessments of how comfortable you are with your own inadequacies and flaws; how comfortable you are with your efforts to be vulnerable and intimate. It could be said that one of the greatest themes we have seen this year is in the examination of all issues regarding intimacy and how one feels in the presence of others. The questions will not be answered by your claiming success or confidence, necessarily, but in your honoring and being present with where you are with those issues. The self-consciousness, depression, lack of enthusiasm, introspection, will not be alleviated by pouncing on the issues and resolving them, but in saying, “yes, that is where I am with that.” The season of Chief Negative Features isn't for resolution, but for acknowledgment and embrace of where you have come in the time of your one year. The search to resolve the issues is from where overwhelm and depression can come. The irony in all of this is in that this is a time to CELEBRATE how far you have come, however little or much that is. In the weeks ahead many of you will feel the effects of these “ripples” and the “highs and lows” and it will only be through your kindness that you can find your footing. We cannot emphasize that word enough in light of the energy that prevails during such a phase of reflection: KINDNESS. It will always be your choice to do so, or not to do so, but we can easily suggest, and we do strongly suggest, that your kindness is needed toward yourself, and toward others. When you feel at your worst in the weeks ahead, or when you see others behaving in ways that you feel are out of character or interfering with your own world, practice Kindness. We will define kindness as “perceiving innocence.” The cruelest, most vile of all of you, is truly innocent beneath the wounds that compel behaviors and choices. Innocence is there. The most we can offer for your year ahead is a preview of what appears to be the overleaves, at this point in the patterns. These are subject to change, but we will share as accurately as we can at this point. ROLE: Sage CENTERING: Emotional/Intellectual GOAL: Acceptance MODE: Passion ATTITUDE: Spiritualist Chief Negative Features: Impatience/Martyrdom. We will update these in January, of course. [alomarsmom] I would like to know if there is any validity to “mediums” who purportedly bring messages from the “other side”. I presume they mean the astral plane. [M Entity] There is a great deal of validity, but in two different ways: one way is in the obvious, which is that the medium is in contact with the consciousness that is the relative, friend, or loved one of the living. This is rare, and when a medium is in that kind of contact, the messages rarely make sense to the living, as the perspective from “the other side” is then so drastically different from when that fragment was embodied. The other is more common in that the medium is psychically receiving echoes from the lives of the deceased as they still resonate in the energy of the living. This practice connects through a kind of template that belonged to the deceased and from that template, certain key words, phrases, images, feelings, etc. can be extracted as comfort for the living. There is validity to the presence of “the dead” as they “walk” about among the living, but the ability to see them is rarely a practical perception as a means to act as a medium for the living to have contact. A few of our channels are highly aware of “the dead” within the days of their lives. This perception is really only effective in helping those specific, disembodied consciousnesses, and their cases have little to do with needing contact with the living. These disembodied consciousnesses find their own way, with or without the intervention of the living. [SweetHeartSage] i am wondering what cadre 1 entity 7 are here on earth to do ? [M Entity] In various ways, Entity Seven of any Cadre carries a theme of Inculcation. They are usually the “teachers” or “imprinters” or “extractors” of the Cadre, meaning that their lives can quite strongly impact those around them in ways that can range from inspiring to invasive. Those from Entity Seven can often be repetitive about the approach to life, never seeming to change their patterns, as they practice this theme of Inculcation. Those who practice Inculcation can often inspire those around him or her, but those who do not find their niche, their pattern, or a comfortable direction of repetition, can often move Eclectically, adding a sense of invasiveness and imposition to the lives of those around them. Anyone from any Entity Seven must search for and implement a pattern within the life that lends meaning to their days, or they begin to chaotically scatter their energies in desperate searches for that pattern, rooting themselves in one destructive pattern, while randomizing their efforts in all other ways. Those from entity 7 either embrace their true uniqueness or they spend their lives aching for recognition and being deemed “special” by someone or something that they have also deemed “special.” Our answer does not describe what entity 7 is “on earth to do,” because there are no “assignments,” but we do describe the common themes that are shared by those in that position and how that may show up in the life. However, we can clarify that Cadre ONE, Entity Seven will carry a theme with an emphasis on teaching all about LOVE, either through Inculcation or through Eclecticism. All Cadre ONE, Entity Seven's would carry that similar theme for their Energy Ring. Bear in mind this “teaching of Love” does not mean “hearts and flowers and unicorns and butterflies” are presented to the world from Cadre One, Entity Seven, but rather that all challenges revolving around the reality of LOVE will be a theme. Many from Cadre One, Entity Seven are striking, but many are as strikingly unlovable as they are strikingly lovable. [Llawryf] Is my current “flare” responding to the Boswellia (a gum resin) I am taking? It seems to be, but appearances can be misleading. If there are 7 stages of healing, where am I at? [M Entity] There are actually 12 stages, or facets, or Healing, and you would appear to be 8th Stage as described by a state of Discipline. This stage is one wherein the education, insight, information, instructions, direction, etc., that have been found in relation to that which seeks to be healed is sifted through, tested, practiced, and thoroughly examined as to how all of it will help, hinder, or heal. Discipline is merely the practice of making conscious choices; therefore, your response to the “flare” is providing you with feedback as to your experience of your treatment. This information/feedback is heightening your sense of consciousness around the choices relative to this healing. Your “flares” will probably resist treatments until the root of the issue is uncovered, however well the Boswellia appears to affect them. We would suggest that the message in these flares, and your efforts to treat them, is a direct reflection of your own Personality's efforts to constantly manage and “put out fires” in life, which then seem to only make more emerge. As you are in the Discipline stage/facet of healing, we would suggest being highly aware of how you respond to “little fires” in the life; how you make choices as a means to reduce the amount of drama; how you navigate your plans as a means to control; and how all of this, ironically, escalates the very thing you wish to reduce. Your next stage of Healing will come in the form of Anchoring, wherein you will sit with the information you have gained during Discipline, embracing it, finding comfort, security, acceptance, grounding in the truths you have uncovered. As this question was of a highly personal nature, we will conclude our response here. We believe what has been shared may also be of help to others beyond the question. [NOTE FROM TROY: I have not read or heard of the 12 Stages/Facets of Healing, so I am excited to get more information about this, if anyone has any! Otherwise, I will be channeling an article about it ASAP] [tkmppi] What would be helpful for the Hopelessly Loved of the HL/HL monad? [M Entity] For those who are in a Hopelessly Loved/Hopelessly Loving Monad, the greatest challenge for the Hopelessly Loved is in the management of the guilt and shame and sense of extensive responsibility for the Hopelessly Loving. What can help the Hopelessly Loved part of the Monad is in the allowance of the full experience of being WANTED. The Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad is not truly about LOVE, but about WANT. It is “not your fault” that you are Wanted, nor is it your “fault” that you do not Want that person in the same way. You are not responsible for the definitions of Want for other fragments. More than understanding your own position within the Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad, understanding the point of the other side can help tremendously. The Loving/Wanting part of the Monad is learning a powerful lesson in self-worth as it is defined INTERNALLY, rather than EXTERNALLY. The Loved/Wanted part of the monad is learning a powerful lesson in RESPONSIBILITY as it is defined by personal boundaries, rather than by the boundaries of others. Knowing that you are not Responsible for the Worth of another is liberating, even as you may still feel kindness or compassion for the Loving/Wanting position. It is okay to feel kindness/compassion for the other half of your Monad, but you do not help close the monad through guilt, shame, or obligation. This monad is closed when both fragments grasp their own ability to choose SELF as a first step toward truly Loving/Being Loved. [H2OSprtLvr] [question was lost from the transcript, for some reason, but paraphrased, it read something like: “Do the various channels work with different parts of the Michael Entity and this is why there seems to be different answers to the same questions?”] [M Entity] Our Entity responds as a whole, regardless of the various fragments within our entity with which a channel may have Agreements. We are never in disagreement or discrepancy across the entity as we respond through our channels. When a channel is one of our Primary Channels, our answers will remain consistent through each channel, however “flavored” by the Personality of each channel. Our Secondary Channels may have a tendency to “spin” the information to the effect of support for their own teaching and perspective of life. Our Tertiary Channels rarely access our information accurately, but only access our energy as a means to support their personal experiences and personal expression. Posing a question to three Primary Channels may result in three “different” answers, but they should not be in conflict. Posing a question to three Secondary Channels may have a theme, but clearly hold conflicts and discrepancies. Posing a question to three Tertiary Channels would result in elaborate discrepancies and a tendency to direct the student to believe in various “reasons” for dismissing these discrepancies, rather than encouraging a resolution or correction of discrepancies. Many of our Tertiary Channels rely heavily on the “energy” that they can convey, rather than the validity of information. Energy is difficult to question as it is subjective, whereas information can be questioned. We can be called upon by 1000 Channels and our information or energy is not segregated among the channels. It is the same, regardless of accuracy or discrepancy among the channels. All of this being said, it is not unusual for a Primary Channel to flaw the expression of our information; fatigue, inexperience, insecurities, personal issues, and specialization can cause a skew our contact with you. This is acceptable to us as we do not wish for any of our students to lose the ability to discern, question, or validate. Discrepancies among Primary Channels do exist, but are a result of isolated issues, rather than long-term agendas. Entities have been described by some of our channels as being designed with “three sides:” one side of Truth, one side of Love, one side of Energy. Those “sides” are also the emphasis used among our varying channels, with Truth an emphasis among our Primary Channels, Love as an emphasis among our Secondary, and Energy as an emphasis among our Tertiary. Our Primary Channels access all three “sides,” while our Secondary access two “sides,” Truth and Energy; and our Tertiary can access only Energy. We do not claim that any one channel's emphasis is better or more valid than the others. We merely respond to your question as a means to help understand how we can seem to be so fragmented in our responses among the channels who claim to channel us. While we are NOT fragmented or segmented among the channels, our channels can act as facets of us, allowing only specific angles of expression. We must add that questions such as this are highly encouraged. We are rarely invited to share in this manner among our students because of the politics and fear among the students and channels. It is Good Work that you choose to rise above the condemnation of courtesy and ask the difficult questions that have the power to heal many of the rifts of misunderstandings perpetuated throughout our students and channels. Understanding our relationships and methods among our channels does not create hierarchy, nor can it be used as such, anymore than Soul Ages can be. We will conclude here. Good night/day to each of you.
  5. Michael Speaks 101109 Open Floor [Michael Entity] We are here. Hello to each of you. [QUESTION] Tremendous amounts of seismic activity have occurred in the south pacific recently. What is the likely outcome of this? Does this portend something bigger to come? [Michael Entity] As you know, we cannot and do not predict, but we can say that the pattern does appear to indicate one of two major directions: That these releases are helping to alleviate a massive plate movement, or that it is leading up to a massive plate movement. The Pacific Plate appears to be shifting more drastically in relation to the Antarctic Plate, due to shifts in temperature and water allocation. At this point, the potential for either direction appears to be equal. The reason we cannot predict the momentum in one direction or the other is because this is one of many factors that would be a part of a Global Nexus building over the next couple of years. In other words, one world would have a massive plate shift, while the other shows a decline in seismic activity altogether. [QUESTION] Is it possible for what is happening to cause a slipping of ice off the Antarctic plate? [Michael Entity] It would be nearly impossible, but not impossible, to have the ice cap "slip," at least in a way that is dramatic. It would more than likely require a meteor impact for that to occur. [QUESTION] How are hive souls different from a human essence with concurrents? Is it the number of incarnations with a human essence having a much smaller number? Or is it a qualitative difference of the character of these different incarnations? Are hive souls also involved with soul levels? [Michael Entity] Hive Souls are different because they are not fragments, and they are not Sentient by standards we use to define Sentience, which would be that one is in the final exploration of the Physical Plane as a Fragment who is evolving Self-Awareness combined with exponential capacity for Choice. Concurrents could be compared to the dynamic of Hive Souls, except that Concurrents have no awareness of one another and each Personality is individual, whereas in Hive Soul dynamics, there is a constant awareness of "the hive," or "species central," so to speak. We use the term "hive" because it is exactly what it is. The consciousness of each animal can come and go to that "hive" as often as necessary, and returns to that hive between lives, much like one might see in a bee hive, where all of the bees come and go as individuals, but always in coordination with one another, and sharing the same central home. In that regard, one could consider all of one's individual lifetimes as the "bees" to the "hive of Essence," but that is where the comparison would end, unless one were to look at the process of Sentience on a much grander scale, then Tao would be the "hive." All forms of consciousness move through some organized process of evolution, but until the level of Sentience, those forms of consciousness can opt back out of the process and return to Tao, move to other planetary systems, remain in one level for as long as is desired. Once there is the leap into Sentience, the commitment is permanent in terms of evolving exponentially. Consider an amusement park as an analogy: All forms of consciousness can ride any and all of the major rides, as often as desired, and even leave the amusement park for other amusement parks, or leave the amusement park circuit altogether and go "home." However, Sentience could be compared to a massive slide that, once boarded, has a natural momentum that pulls one forward and completely to the end, with very little room for abandoning the momentum. [QUESTION] How many essences do most essences choose to do many external monads with? Getting confused with what I've read, can't find much in depth material. I know we do them all at least once, and to get to the love monad you do a certain group of them with the same essence, and some choose to do more than one love monad. That seems like a lot of monads to get through. Also, I can't find any description of the love monad beyond the general experiencing agape, etc, and it's not necessarily a mate thing, could be other relationships, right? Is this something usually done with ET and/or just a few other close essences? [Michael Entity] Most fragments tend to work in all of the major (classic) external monads in a way that leads to a Love Monad with at least 12 other fragments. Once the Love Monad is completed, this fragment becomes what we refer to as a Heart Link. Most fragments tend to develop at least 12 Heart Links. This may seem like a lot of external monads to complete, and it is, but keep in mind that many of these can be completed with multiple fragments within the same lifetime; many can be reciprocated within a single lifetime; and as Essence evolves and experiments with Concurrents, this adds more possibility for fulfillment. Over approximately 100 lifetimes or more, this is easily accomplished. Many fragments choose to fulfill external monads with those Essences most available and/or already linked, such as Essence Twins, Traveling Companions, the Primary Task Companion, and then those Task Companions who are added after the cycle begins. The Love Monad is not necessarily a final monad, but simply the Monad that moves two fragments into a final process of Agape. In other words, the commitment to truly Love one another has now been made. In that commitment, the Love Monad would show up as a commitment within the lifetime to "re-visit" literally or symbolically ALL Monads that have come to be fulfilled with one another. The reason for this is because True Love, or Agape, requires comprehension, and the Personalities attempt to truly grasp the magnitude of each other in the Love Monad. Most try to complete the Love Monad within a single lifetime, but we see that up to three lifetimes tend to be the average. [QUESTION] Does this imply that the Love Monad occurs between fragments of the same soul age? [Michael Entity] Yes, and rarely before the Old Soul cycle. [QUESTION] Are the "classic" ones that full set of about 30 I've seen around various places, or a subset? [Michael Entity] The "classic" set of monads have been listed elsewhere, yes, but we will also include those in the final transcript. [see end of transcript] Though the classics are often preferred, the Love Monad is not limited to having only done the classics. Many Love Monads arise from including a few rather rare or original external monads. Once a Love Monad is completed, ALL "charge" between those fragments is neutralized. In other words, those with Heart Links tend to rarely feel more than soft admiration and embrace of one another. [QUESTION] I'd like a little more insight into the whole enabling deal [how to tell if you are an enabler, and what to do if you are an enabler]. [Michael Entity] There are various forms of "enabling," but the generality is that this is a state of passive or active contribution to the harm of another person in the guise of support. The most definitive factor in determining if one is enabling, or not, is if your presence is contributing to the harm of yourself, or to the other. We emphasize "PRESENCE," as it does not have to be an active presence, but can be a passive one, that helps contribute to the harm to yourself, or to the other. Presence plus Harm equals "Enabling." We will further define "Harm" as systematic or sudden reduction in the capacity for choice. Putting all of this together, one can then help oneself determine if one is "enabling," if one's presence is actively, or passively, contributing to the reduction of another's, or your own, capacity for choice. If one discovers enabling is in effect, the next step is, of course, to make your choice as to whether to continue enabling, which is a valid choice in itself, to remove oneself from that dynamic altogether, or to take action in a way that contributes to the return of choice for both parties. The key in your next step, then, would be CHOICE, which helps to counter all harmful effects of Enabling. If one chooses to continue enabling after one has realized that is the dynamic, it will require a reduction of consciousness and a move into a division within the Personality. This is because, however regressive one's behavior can be, one's awareness cannot be unlearned. You now KNOW you are enabling, and you choose to continue to contribute harm. This will require a division within, as one part is fully aware, and the other part manages the habitual behavior. However, that part that is aware will now always be there, and it will most likely not be able to be ignored, however habitual the behavior continues. This is why we say that even the choice to continue can help counter the effects of enabling. In a sudden moment, everything can change, now that this awareness is in place. In other words, many will continue to enable, until they simply cannot. If you chose to remove yourself from the enabling dynamic, this leaves the other Personality to either find someone else to enable, or to find effective help, or to spiral further into his or her own demise. However, in a situation where one has not only become ineffective in bringing about healing and positive change, but has moved into a dynamic that is actually causing harm to both parties, then the choice to leave is not abandonment. It is love. For many fragments, the choice to step outside of the dynamic of self-harm that is generated by another fragment is one of the most difficult, and most loving choices, a Personality can ever make. It is entirely counter-intuitive to step outside of that dynamic, and often it is met with devastating feelings, but it is a choice that is rooted in absolute love, not only in that it is countering the harm that is built into the dynamic of enabling, but in that it is a trust in both parties to return to a capacity of choice that is higher than when together. The choices made beyond that cannot be guaranteed to bring about beautiful results, but the capacity for choice is there. Beyond continuing to enable, or removing oneself from the enabling dynamic, there is then the choice to take active measures to increase the capacity for choice for both parties. If this choice is made, it does not guarantee that the one who was enabled will be receptive to this increase of choice, but as one is in a state that is decreased capacity for choice, it is a fair and legitimate choice of another fragment to "intervene," if possible. Intervention may, or may not, be received, but the effort to bring this to the previously-enabled fragment's life is a valid choice, if you choose to do so, and if the resources are there to help you to do so. [QUESTION] One wonders whether animals are happy in zoos, but on the other hand zoos are nowadays helping to save threatened species. Does the positive outweigh the negative? [Michael Entity] On a small scale, there are a number of zoos where the impact is for preservation, sanctuary, and rehabilitation, and these zoos are fairly clear and open in that agenda. We see most animals in that scenario to find value in the experience as this contributes to their own evolution of consciousness. Anytime animals can be in close proximity to Sentience while capable of maintaining their own level of capacity for choice, much is gained. However, most zoos do not share this agenda, and simply exist as a business for generating city or personal revenue, contributing to the unnecessary confinement, capture, and harm of those animals involved. We cannot say that the positive outweighs the negative, but we can say that if one is concerned, it is usually obvious which zoos are sanctuaries, and which are businesses. [QUESTION] So one can visit a sanctuary zoo with a clear conscience? [Michael Entity] That would be a question only you could answer. We know that many can visit the most harmful of zoos and still have a "clear conscience," while others can visit the most beneficial of zoos, and leave feeling a deep guilt or sorrow. However, we can say that if one's concern is the comparison between benefit vs destruction, then those zoos focused on sanctuary, etc, may be more comfortable for the compassionate Personality. Compassion and consciousness grow parallel to one another, and are often linked with sensitivity. If one's consciousness and compassion has evolved to a point where these questions are important, and one feels that the participation in one zoo contributes to one's idea of good work, over the work of another, then the choice may be an easy one for that individual. For another fragment who is not emphasizing broad compassion and consciousness, then the choice may simply be as to which one would bring more personal joy or entertainment. We wish to point out that we see all choices as valid, but in terms of contributing to the choices available to non-sentient species vs the reduction of choice for that species, we do see this concern as growing parallel to one's evolution of consciousness. For instance, one can easily remove the choice of a fellow Sentient fragment through murder in earlier lifetimes, but this eventually falls away as a solution as consciousness evolves. The same concern begins to extend to other species as that evolution continues. This is not to say that an Old Soul will not, or cannot, murder, or that an Infant or Baby soul does not have compassion and concern for other species, but that the progression is fairly consistent in terms of your question becoming an important to the fragment. [QUESTION] Hello, Michael. Based on the Teachings we've received so far, I cannot validate the truth of whether or not Cetaceans are an ensouled family of animals for a number of reasons: ...1) Michael has said that Cetacea are a transplanted group of Essences who are finishing off their Grand Cycles started elsewhere, but nearly gone extinct due to technological/civilization abuses. Also, their ensoulment started prior to humans. ...When did cetaceans first ensoul on earth? [Michael Entity] About 40 million years ago by Earth standards of measuring time. The original line of species from the original star system were land and water mammals who would resemble something more like variations of swimming wolves that could walk upright. The line of species on Earth that were used for continued ensoulment of the 3 Harmonies (about 5 million entities) was an Order that had some genetic history of land and water life, as well, but had become water-bound, with no appendages capable of environmental manipulation, and had developed the Intellectual Center to a point where a leap into self-awareness and capacity for choice could be ignited by the ensoulment. ...What was the average soul age level? [Michael Entity] The average Soul Age at the time of the transition was early Young. ...Have they continued to start new infant souls? [Michael Entity] Infant Souls stopped choosing these species millions of years ago, though 1 additional Harmony that had not begun its incarnations in the previous species joined the 3 who transferred, and those fragments know only Earth as their Sentient cycles. Most of the fragments who have become notorious in their curiosity and exchange with Human Sentience come from that Harmony. ...2) Cetaceans is a biological order, not a species -- just as primates is an order, not a species. The order Cetacea contains about ninety species, all marine except for four species of freshwater dolphins. ...Which species of Cetaceans are ensouled? [Michael Entity] The concept of "Species" is a relative concept, and one that is not consistent, complete, or agreed upon, even within your scientific communities. We use the term loosely, as it does have a fair amount of accuracy as a reference. In terms of Cetacea, nearly all species are ensouled, except the various Families known as the River Dolphin. Within the Cetacean world, "species" are experienced more in the way that Humans experience "Race," with no real differentiation between those Whales with teeth and those without. ...3) Michael has said that culture and social interactions are major parts of the evolution of humans' soul ages. The continual use of choice generates intense relationships, and karma. Civilization has grown out of a need to stabilize the effects of weather irregularities and to allow for surpluses. ...While I can understand that civilization may not be necessary in a stable environment and food supply, especially if one is nomadic, the impact of social interactions and karma seems necessary for soul evolution. None of the information about roles, overleaves, or even soul age level seem to apply to cetaceans. Nor do they seem to share a culture. Can you explain? [Michael Entity] The vast variation of cultures among Humans, however foreign, frightening, or familiar, all share mediums that are natural to your species. The same is true of Cetaceans who do not have the same capacity for manipulating their environment in a way that you would recognize their cultures, but in ways that are relative to their capabilities. In many cases, there are common grounds, but even within that common ground, it may not be recognizable to Humans as a "culture" by Human standards. Areas of culture that you might recognize would be in their dance, games, singing, poetry, families, story-telling, etc. These are areas that are handed down, taught, have become tradition, have evolved over time, and could be seen and heard by you for the most part, though it may not make sense to you. Beyond these common areas, art is quite important to Cetacea and this is done in an arena that you might recognize as a telepathic, or psychic, arena. Constructs of thought and feeling can be shaped in ways that can be transferred and shared among the various species. Many of the larger Whales might be experienced as floating art galleries, as they tend to store and collect art. Cetacea do not have religions as Humans do, but they do have their mythologies that could be said to be similar to religious mythology. Most of their mythologies are consistent and shared across species, all being variations of their history of commitment to rise above harm and violence, to cultivate arts, and to find their way home to the stars. Human mythology is similar, since Human Sentience was also transported from species off-planet, but Humans have turned their mythologies away from being a reflection of origin and intent, to being a process and mirror for dysfunction. Soul Age, Levels, Overleaves, etc, are just as valid among Cetacea as they are among Humans. There are instances when our students may recognize the validity of these factors in behaviors that are familiar, or as exchanges between Cetacean and Human. For the most part, your question is similar to a statement such as "all Chinese look alike," when that statement couldn't be further from the truth. That statement, as well as your question, merely reflects a lack of intimate experience with the individuals that make up that group. We can assure you that there is a spectrum of personalities among Cetacea, from wise Whales and wise-ass Whales, and beyond. As with any group of Sentience that has variations of body types, cultures, history, current circumstances, etc, Soul Ages tend to gravitate toward one group or another. For instance, in Humans the "Black Race" used to be primarily Mature Souls as slavery was imposed, and the fight for freedom and rights was building. Once a fair amount of freedom was secured, Young Souls have now moved into that "race" as a means to take advantage of that freedom. For many years, Servers found great value in building up the United States, but once the United States moved into a Young Soul paradigm, Servers shifted their population to China. Now that Mature Souls, and a return of emphasis to family and support is building, Servers are returning to the U.S. This same kind of movement of Souls and Soul Ages is within the Cetacea. The species known as Orca are more exciting to the Infant and Baby Souls, whereas the larger Whales are more appealing to the Older Souls. Now Orcas tend to be popular among Young Souls, and this contributed to an entire entertainment industry on land with Humans, as these Young Souls rebel against their cultures and insist that they can be "stars." Many of the familiar Dolphin tales of rescue and nurturing of stranded humans are Mature Souls, as well as the occasional beached, confused, or tragic incidences among Whales and Dolphins. Whales and Dolphins drawn to Human exchanges tend to be Sages and Scholars. Of course, within all of this are the Overleaves. In short, unless you are able to truly submerge yourself into another group, the things that you find familiar may not be found among that group, but that does not invalidate the reality of their souls or their cultures. ...4) Michael has said that the essential component necessary to a intelligent species to make the leap to sentience and ensoulment is imagination. Choice requires imagination and creative thinking. Whales, dolphins, and porpoises are generally deemed very intelligent, but there seems little evidence of imagination. Humpback whales display creative thinking in their use of encircling herring in a ring of bubbles that forces them into a ball for easy capture. But for all of the millennium that humans and cetacea have co-existed, none of the cetaceans seem to have much understanding or lore about avoiding human hunters. Cetacean language may include song but it doesn't include historical or teaching stories. The oceans are vast and unpredictable; they are not humans' natural element. Yet, they managed to hunt several species of whale to near extinction. How was this possible? [Michael Entity] Humans hunt, enslave, murder, and torture EACH OTHER on small scales and large scales. The fact that this can still occur, even with all that has come to be recorded and learned by your own species, does not negate your imagination, capacity for choice, and sentience. The fact that Humans can extend this violence and impose it upon other creatures, does not, in any way, negate their capacity for feeling or suffering, let alone their capacity for choice, imagination, and sentience. One of the primary motivating factors for Humans is Fear. One of the primary motivating factors for Cetacea is Love. In the same way that most Humans will gauge their options through a filter of fear, Cetacea tend to filter their options through Love. This means that their "lore" and teachings are rooted in trust, open-mindedness, affection, and innocence. Despite the fact that a Cetacean species may be hunted to the point of extinction, Cetacea will not give up the concept that there is hope for peaceful relations with every other species. In addition to this, their concepts of death are quite different from Humans', and their emphasis is on life and living moment to moment, rather than in a way that is entirely based in fear and preservation. Keep in mind that this is a group of Sentience who destroyed themselves and the habitable status of their original planet. They are simply not going to go down any path of choice that hints at war or fear. This is not to say they do not experience fear, or choose fear, but that they do it in other ways unrelated to survival. Every group of Sentience moves through cycles that could be described in terms of Overleaves, and for the past Century, Cetaceans have been in Spiritualist cycle, with Idealism before that. The new century cycle is one of Realism, and this may help temper some of the blind faith and naivety that has been a part of their societies for a couple of centuries. Humans have moved out of a cycle of Cynicism and into Idealism, tempered with Pragmatism. As for imagination, most of this you simply cannot see. To insist that one species use the tools, or the familiar media, that another species uses as a means to determine intelligence and imagination, is simply an invalid method of interpretation. [QUESTION]...Additionally, since karma is created when sentient species kill sentient species, how will the karma be balanced between the whale hunters and the whales? Or even the tuna fisherman and the dolphins? [Michael Entity] Karma is only generated if INTENSITY is generated on at least one side of the scenario and attached to the other. With Cetacea inherently forgiving and naive, very little Karma has been generated. In instances where Karma has been generated, it would be burned in the same way that you understand Ribbons to be burned among Humans. This would either be a reversal of the scenario in another life, or a creative form of balance that is focused on rescue and saving lives. In other words, for example, many Whale hunters from the past are now activists for their protection. *** End of session *Classic External (relationship) Monads Teacher/Student; Parent/Child; Imprinter/Imprinted; Siblings (brother/brother, brother/sister, sister/sister); Husband/Wife; Leader/Follower; Attacker/Victim; Healer/Healed; Rescuer/Rescued; Integrator/Eccentric; Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved; Passionate/Repressed; Dependent/Independent; Pivotal Facilitator/Facilitated; Slovenly/Meticulous; Passive/Aggressive; Adept/Apprentice; Artist/Patron; Deserter/Abandoned; Profligate/Tempered; Innocent/Sophisticate; Promiscuous/Impotent; Master/Slave; Player/Pawn; Defender/Defended; Hidden/Disclosed; Slander/Slandered; Jailer/Prisoner; Tandem Monad; Love Monad Note from Janet: In the comments following the original posting of this session, the following exchange occurred which may be relevant to those reading this transcript: Comment: Very interesting Troy, I do have a question about humans on occasion incarnating into cetaceans or the other way around. I simply cannot abide Micheal's take that this does absolutely not happen. I tend to feel I have had at least one lifetime in this form while still doing the human rounds, so to speak. Can you comment on why essence might choose to do this and what reasons would predispose essence to do this as opposed to maybe sticking to a one species at a time kind of thing. I imagine that in life there have to be the occasional exceptions to the rule. Look at Bill Gates' wealth, Micheal Jackson's talent, Hitler's atrocities etc etc Response from Troy: My first response is that Bill Gates, Michael Jackson, and Hitler don't represent anything similar to an "exception to the rule" that might be similar to an exception like Sentience leaping around in different species. Those people are still living within the context of being human and using the same playing field we all have access to. They may be exceptional to the average life, but not exceptional to any rule. But Michael has addressed this sense of memory for some as being Cetacean, and Michael has said that these memories vary from fantasy to astral reviews to being friends with other Sentient Essences, and memories other Grand Cycles. FANTASY: Some of us identify strongly with what we see as such innocence and wisdom and peace, so we create fantasies about having been one of them. ASTRAL REVIEW: When it's from astral review, it's usually from between lives when we had taken part in the harm of a Cetacean. Michael has explained that our astral review always includes a complete examination of any harm we caused to any creature. Any time our consciousness gets to a point where we begin considering the consequences of our actions on other creatures, sentient or otherwise, we generate a kind of self-karma that we work through. So if we pointlessly squash a bug, bite into a hamburger, and we realize that our actions contributed to the harm of a creature, or if we are on a whaling boat and start to realize that something is very painful and upsetting about that exploitation, we explore the flipside in our astral review. That means we literally cast a part of our consciousness into an animal, insect, bird, or reptile and experience whatever we did that caused their demise or wounding. If an incarnated animal isn't in any situation that could lend that experience, then it will be done entirely on the astral, and though the physical experience may be compromised a bit, the emotional experience would be equal. This is how we begin to truly grasp compassion beyond the limits of our species. FRIENDSHIP: Michael says it's not uncommon at all for groups of Sentience who are incarnating in different species that do not interact on the physical plane in any meaningful way to still develop friendships outside of the Physical Plane. There are a lot of fragments throughout the body of students of Michael who are good friends with many Cetacean Sentients. And probably just as many who have friends (as Essence) from off-planet, as well. Michael has said that when the species don't interact in a way that can build relationships, then the Essences will explore each others' species and environment during astral review, sometimes even acting as a guide while one is incarnated. GRAND CYCLES: And then Michael has also said that there were other species similar to Cetaceans in our past Grand Cycles that, as we grow older in soul age, we might be remembering. In the end, Michael says that you can believe whatever you want, though, of course. Further comment from Geraldine: I think that something that you're not taking into consideration is the long period of time where your Essence was exploring the beginning of their Grand Cycle and experimenting on the physical plane. This is when each Essence spends time as all of the beginning and simplest elements, minerals, rocks, simple animals and plants -- all the way on up to being Hive Souls and Devas. All seven kingdoms of existence are experienced in order to develop Essence to be ready to ensoul into a species. Not all of these experiences are spent on earth and many Essences who do experience a kingdom or two will move onto another planet elsewhere on the physical plane. While I've read elsewhere that humans and cetaceans experience cross-species ensoulment, I tend to go along with Michael on this one as it's consistent with all of the rest of their teachings about Role in Essence development. It's very possible that you have a whale totem animal and are picking up those "vibes." I know that I have a Blue Whale as one of my totem animals.
